All started with a fated meeting, between Tohma and Lily. The ring, the book and everything else all came afterwards. Their meeting was not a tragic one, even if whole worlds could consider their meeting the start of a cruel fate; to those two, it may as well be a miracle. Their powers may be ones that only exist to bring destruction and ruin, yet those two swore to turn those very powers have into their hope. The past can’t be changed, but the future can be anything. This is the record of their struggle.These are the records that chronicle the Book of the Silver Cross Incident and everything that followed. It is the year 81 of the New Calendar, the awakening of the black grimoire, the second volume of the Gospel of the Silver Cross, has been completed. With the birth of the Zero Driver the world now truly spins into motion. The pieces are placed, the actors are ready and the stage is finally set. All that is left is for you to act. Having understood a bit more of the world around you, how will you choose to act from now on? What will you protect? What will you sacrifice? Only a devil might know.

>>31182227You are Samantha, a proud servant of the greatest king of the ancient times (not that stupid Saint Kaiser that destroyed her own kingdom like an idiot) with the power to call upon his proud servants, the 72 Pillars, but your friends annoyingly like to call you Sacchin. You did not know whatever a Sacchin was, but you just resigned yourself to that stupid name, at least it made your friends happy. Normally you would have continued living serving the king, becoming a beacon of his magnificence and awaiting loyally for his return… sadly you can’t do that right now, because you and the city are under attack from weird mutants zombie monsters. Like the one before you. Its arm is some sort of laser cannon that had some sort of anti-magic effect and it did not really look that friendly. Adding to the fact that something was weakening your magics and making summoning your allies quite difficult, this was quite a pinch you were in. Before you was a mindless monster, one that would not hesitate to kill you, but you were near the gate to the military sector, with some luck you could make it inside and get someone to help you. What do you do? >Summon! You bond can work around whatever is making magic weaker. >Attack with a Spell! Offence is the best! >Bind him with a spell! Buy yourself time to run. >Cry for Help, being near the TSAB means that someone might hear you and come. >Go pass the gate, you might be able to avoid it until you meet someone. >Other.
>>31182251>>Summon! You bond can work around whatever is making magic weaker.Summon something to hold it off and make a brake for it. >SacchinIs our goal in life to defeat all the protagonist and become the quest main character?
>>31182380No your goal in life is to have a happy end! But if you want to bet the protagonist and take over, be my guest, I would be fine with that too.
>>31182380Summon Who? >The Thief, Valefor>The Seeker, Eligor>The Servant, Ronove >The Tempter, Astaroth >The Avenger, Marchosias >Other? Suggest a Demon from the 72 Pillars
>>31182520>Summon, The Servant, Ronove I wonder if EC infected count as "dying" souls.
>>31182671Dying Souls... no, the EC Infected are still living beings, they are mutated humans who have lost reasoning because of the high VL they currently have. Also Ronove is an interesting choice... he is certainly a fabulous gentleman.
>>31182712Right that old man is probably the best choice right now, he always had quite the experience in fighting defensive battles, with some luck… You raise your hand, as a silver key appears! This is the ancient proof of the contract, the physical form of the pact that your ancestors entered with the Wise King! “I call upon the Demon Marquis, Pillar Number 27, Ronove! Under the authority granted to me by the Wise King, I beseech you to come to my aid! Ruler of the Departed come!” Magical energy gathers as the bridge between this world and a lost dimension opens, and an essence flows out. The body had been lost and locked away a long time ago, but the soul still exists! Your power provides it a vessel in this plane and he subjects himself to his will! Thus in a flutter of red roses the Marquis appears, a sharply dressed gentleman who appeared more like a butler than a former king. The black haired demon is carried a tray with tea and cookies, treasures from the real of spirits, the greatest cookies ever created! “Fufuu, I see that you have summoned me once again, my lady, but I believe that it is a bit too late for Tea and Cookies, do you have something else for me to do?” Ronove stops to inspect the scene, before continuing to greet you. “While I may be proud enough to call myself the best servant of the king, I am not the sort that is willing to just clean the whole city, unless you wish for me to clean something else… like this trash that is daring to attack us? Please order this faithful servant to do as you wish.”Order him… still! You see that the monster is now aiming its laser cannon! What do you order your Summon to…>Attack that thing, we have no time to waste! >Barrier! Shield me while I run to the Gate>Help me look for someone to help us>Buy me some time, I need to get away back into the City! >Other?
>>31183086>Barrier! Shield me while I run to the GateAnd now we run away.
>>31183167“Ronove, cover me, I do not have time to waste here!” Without thinking you turn around and make a mad dash towards the gate! You do not even bother to think about the monster or anything else! Ronove will protect you! You are willing to gamble your life on that fact! “Fufufu, this Lady, I do have to say that she is quite rough, don’t you agree Mister.” The infected human just roared, as it fired the silver colored beam at your back! But that attack never connected! The Marquis quickly interposed himself between you and the laser, and immediately summoned a barrier! A wall of cyan light stood against the drilling power of the enemy, if it had been a normal barrier, the beam (not a laser, Ronove noted) would have broken the barrier with ease. But he was the 27th Pillar, he would not falter now that his Lady called for him! “Quite Strong, if it had been any other member of the 72 other than me, sincerely doubt that they would have been able to stop you.” Ronove raised his fist, as he prepared to fight, “But sadly, you met me here, so prepare to die, I can’t have a knave like you daring to attack my precious master!” Twin barriers cover each of Ronove’s fists as the demon butler entered the battle! …..
You dash past the gate with ease, with Ronove covering your back you are sure that the danger has passed. This is the Southern district, and while compared to the West one it looks better or at least more safe, you still do not feel anyone around… Still you feel unease amidst the military offices and factories that make up the South District, still the Spaceport is quite near, and the TSAB Base is a bit futher, but the last of people worries you. Are there still enemies here? No, that is not possible, Ronove is still guarding the gate, so nothing could have followed you from there. Your scrying magic is not working right now, but otherwise all your other spells work… what do you do? >Summon the Mighty Wings to Carry you, Call upon the Hunter, Valefor! >Sneak Around the area, see if there is really someone nearby?>Run towards the Spaceport, there should be someone there>Go to the Base, even if it is more dangerous, you are sure the TSAB are still there. >Go back and help Ronove>Other.
Rolled 30>>31183781Checking for something...
>>31183781>Go to the Base, even if it is more dangerous, you are sure the TSAB are still there. Lets get out of here!
>>31183781>Trust your instincts, there's something here! Unleash the Seeker, Eligor
Will give it more time, or will roll.
>>31183781GET TO DA BASE~
>>31184937>>31185531Very well Going to the Base!
>>31185672There was no time to waste, even though you feel you weren’t alone, you need to hurry up. The TSAB base was located in the middle of the sector, meaning that to get to it from the side of the gate, you will have to cross a couple kilometers of urban jungle until you arrive. “I guess there is no time to waste! I got to keep going!” Bearing the pain from you undue bout of exercise, you continue your way across several city blocks, trying to avoid the anything that could harm you. The Night time really helps in this, because the shadows serve as a useful cover from predators in the city, and help you hide when you heard any weird sounds. Compared to the Western District, this district appears to have withstood the infection better, the streets seem more functional, less bloody, yet living meat and there appears to be signs of combat: magitech tanks broken, spent cartridge shells, and even the bodies of a mage or two (you hated the fact that they died, but at the same time felt relief of seeing others nearby…)After an hour of walking you are now in the memorial park, a memorial site for TSAB Agents that had given their lives in battle in this world… currently the place is empty, and while still very unsafe, and you feel that the place was safe enough to rest…You are tired from all this running away and resting will help your Linker Core- a mage’s spiritual organ- regain enough mana to summon more. Still you feel wary of staying too long in this unsafe place, but… You feel really tired.Do you continue your journey? Yes - Will bring up a menuNo- Return to Tohma.
>>31185963Yes. GET THE TO TSAB AND THEN WE CAN SEE DAFUQMA TOHMA'S UP TO
>>31185963>Yes - Will bring up a menuWe'll rest once we've found people.
>>31186120>>31186135Who am I to fight you guys? Let's continue! >Summon Valefor! Arrive to the TSAB in your amazing wind demon wyvern!>Unleash the Seeker Eligor, you feel that something is still near you! >Search the park for items and food, you have not eaten in a while? >Look for a better place to hide, you are tired still>Continue Walking to the TSAB Base, you are about more than halfway there. >Try to call for aid, maybe a telepathy spell will reach someone! Get them to come to you!> Look for the sound..."Wryyy!">Other...
>>31186242Flying is a bad idea, since that just makes us a target. Let's get some food and such...but be careful. Avoid any noise, even if it's talking voices.
>>31186242>>Search the park for items and food, you have not eaten in a while?Let's go break some vending machines.
Rolled 30>>31186271>>31186396Well let's roll to find stuff... roll me 3x d100s Lower is better!
Rolled 42>>31186564If we roll a 100 do we find a vampire?
Rolled 92>>31186655You will find magitech!Space!DIO, so yes you would... or Ren, I guess at this point she might count as a vampire. >>31186645Superb Success, yay!
Rolled 47>>31186564Encounter Roll: Mediocre! >>31186645Search Roll: Marvelous>>31186672Ally Roll... Bad, horribly bad..>Writing!
Rolled 56>>31186693>Search around! This park is a military station right? So there should be something here. The night falls upon the park like a heavy blanket, and under the powerless city… the moon shines beautifully. “This is a good night, so I can’t stop now, or Ronove will tease me to death!” The stupid demon butler would probably call you weak if you gave up now, so you can’t stop now to watch the moon our of all things. Thus you go around search the park area for any useful items you can find. First you gather all the food you can from bending machines: several chocolate bars and some juice cans, what a horrible taste… Other than that you did not find anything else… but well with what you found, you really did not need anything else.Before you, in a small museum in the park is a tank! A Saint Kaiser Damned Tank! Well more like a Linear Railgun Tank.... which made it an illegal mass weapon.“In memorial of those lost in the past era of war, amidst the reconstruction after the Fall of Belka!” So this was something from about 100 years old, which model is a bit old (a priceless antique), and apparently it runs on fuels (instead of magic) which means it works even in these magic adverse conditions, and while it is not armed you feel that it would help you get to the base fast. There is only one problem… (well two but you do not care that this is an illegal mass weapon that much to even bother to think of that)You do not know how to drive this thing, and even worse… you did not know how to hotwire this thing… hell can you even hotwire a tank? What do you do? >Try to drive the tank yourself, it is a tank! >Summon a Friend! While this might waste all the mana you have left, it would help you. >Call Ronove! He might be able to come and help you. >Leave the tank (will bring up another menu!”>Other?
>>31186895>Call Ronove"Marquis, I have found a motherfucking tank. Do you know how to drive?"
>>31186895>>Call Ronove! He might be able to come and help you.Worst comes to worst we can at least sleep in it.
>>31187025>>31187196Roll me for understanding... 3xd100 Lower is better!
Rolled 61>>31187252Here we go again...
Rolled 72>>31187252But I thought tanks were like the easiest things to drive ever?Golf carts are more complex.
>>31187277>>31187280>>31187295>You lost her, Ronove! >>31187308Well, it is more making the thing work, than driving it. But she does not know how to drive either, but this is a tank in a zombie apoc, so no one expects her to drive very well. Still its a futuristic!Magictech!Tank with magic security codes and stuff, not that easy to hack and take over it if you do not know what you are doing, like Samantha is.
>>31187354>Call Ronove! Yeah that should be the best thing, while you had an ally that was an avid tank fan (he watched the Panzercraft tournaments all the time with the cable they stole) you weren’t going to waste your mana summoning him right now. So here we go! “Ronove, Ronove, I found a motherfucking tank! Do you know how to drive it?” Your telepathy with a summoned spirit was not based on normal magic, but on sympathy. As a summoner you were the medium through which your spirits entered this realm, and thus you and your precious allies were connected on a level above normal magics! >Lady, I am quite busy right now, I am not sure I will be of much aid to you! The fine gentleman, Mr. LaserArm has brought some company, and I am having difficulties attending to all of them. But worry not, my lady, I am an exemplar servant, I can handle this. You hear Ronove grunt as he continues to fight, is your spirit all right? >Do not worry my lady, I am fine, but if you want to talk about tanks, should you not call Forneus? I remember the fancy fish king being quite the panzer connoisseur, I am sure he could help you. “Sorry, but I can only handle one more summoning before I need to rest, and I can’t waste it on just calling Forneus” The problem with summoning that the majority of the cost was in calling the spirit to this plain. Meaning that even if you tried to call Forneus in a weaker and smaller state (to fit in the tank), the floating whale will still take quite a bit of your magical energy. >I see, then please allow me, the Marquis of Hell, Ronove, to instruct you in the fine art of Panzercraft! Prepare to learn how to handle Belkan Armor like the best of the best!
>>31187804You could imagine roses fluttering around your demon butler, as he starts to give very detailed and complex instructions on how to hijack your tank. Involving duping the VI and arranging it to use your device as a sub-processor so you can fake being a designated driver, along with several tedious hacking processes to handle the protection to the systems… all in all it was quite an elegant class, coming from a guy fighting to death right now.Sadly… “Ronove… you lost me!” Really, he should know that this hacking thing was not your forte, you were a summoner… hence you tended to leave that sort of things to your spirits. >Then just call Forneus to help you, or recall me! I am already in the same world as you, so I am sure that you can manage to make a new vessel for me quite easily, my lady! Right, right… but if Ronove leaves the gate, that means that all the infected that arrived to fight him will pour down into this sector… wouldn’t that make things worse? >Resummon Ronove! >Summon Forneus- Waste all your mana for now! >Sleep in the tank! >Try to hotwire it yourself, you kind of get what Ronove was talking about>Just leave the tank, you can’t waste more time in it! >Other?
>>31187827>>Try to hotwire it yourself, you kind of get what Ronove was talking aboutLet's do this!Failure is for side characters.
>>31187961Oh boy... well at least if you guys fail, I get to use the Isn't it sad? Pic...Roll me a Dex Check 3x d100 DC is 25... Ronove can make miracles for you.
Rolled 70>>31188214>Pray for a miracle.Don't these things come with a manual?
>>31188252Not a manual to hijack them... although it would be funny if they came with one. >Terrorist: I now infiltrated the enemy base, now I just have to use the manual to take over their tank and kill them all! Hwhwuwhwuwha
Rolled 7>>31188214>>31188289If we succeed let's write down how we did it and put the note under the seat.
>>31188322Miracles do Happen... I guess at this point Sacchin is more competent than Tohma. >Writing!
>>31188466“Don’t worry Ronove, I will just wing it!” That was right, you are a superior summoner under the service of the Wise King, hotwiring a stupid car like this was nothing! >Wait, my lady, wait!!! You tune out Ronove as you work on following his instruction. You first break the computer case and take a couple of parts out, then turn this wire and hack this part, and then use this fire spell to weld this… and voila! In just about 10 minutes you managed to hijack a highgrade military weapon from the old era! “Hahaha, I am great!” Really if Sempai had seen you in action you were sure he would have noticed you by now! You really are great, now you must make sure to write this down so future generations will know how great you are! >That way you won’t be sad anymore! Still you now have a working tank, while you do not have any shells to fire or know how to drive, it is still a very useful thing… so what will you do now?>Take a moment and eat… you are tired from being so smart! >Think of Sempai… he is really cool, and has awesome glasses! >Go and testdrive the tank in the park, time to see what this panzer can do! >Go and sleep in the tank, you are quite tired>Summon Something/Call Ronove?>Go and drive straight towards the base, you have no time to waste! Do not worry about collateral damage! >Other?
>>31188668>>Think of Sempai… he is really cool, and has awesome glasses!>>Call Ronove,"Ronove, can love bloom during the zombie apocalypse?Oh, and do you need help?
>>31188847all of my this.
>>31189148>>31188847Working on it...I will give you guys a price if you guess who Sempai is..
>>31189213No, Tohma has never been to Liberta... just wait for the post... and try to answer it without the blacktext.
>>31189232Gah, were you only taking the first guess?I should have posted faster.
>>31189290No, I was going to take a guess after I posted the text about Sempai... right now you guys do not have clues about who he is.
>>31189319Ah, alright. Misunderstood.Carry on.
>>31189319>Sempai…Your Sempai is a really cool guy, you just love his shinny glasses and the way he … lives, yeah that is the word you want to use. He lives so vividly and beautifully, you feel that he enjoys the mere fact that he is alive. Plus you love how cool he looks when he walks around. He is a bit sickly, has anemia or something, and tends to miss school a lot, but you still like him, a long time ago he saved you from a car crash, sliced the car with a red sword and all, and since then you…You feel shy thinking about it. People think he is a mean guy, or that he is a bit of a loner… and while you agree he has this weird aura about him; you know he is a really kind guy. After all he is the type that likes cats and loved to pet them…You will never tell anyone this, but you think Sempai is some sort of cyborg ninja- like the game. One day you saw him jumping from a bridge into a river and rescue a cat! It was a 10 meter drop and when he reached the water, he stood over it- literally walking over it- and then jumped back up! It was so cool! Especially considering Sempai is not a mage or anything… you know because you have checked him for magic before (you just need to know because of reasons… you do not plan to ask him to help you continue your bloodline or anything…) Still, you found that weird black shadow that clung to him a bit strange, but well, Sempai is Sempai… if only he would notice you… >Remember try to do it without the black text...
>>31189386>Call Ronove “Ronove, Ronove…” You call you butler from the inside of the comfortable tank you hijacked, thinking of Sempai made you a bit happy, but now you must move on! “Ronove, do you think love can bloom in a zombie apocalypse?” >My ladie…? “Ahhahha- I mean, do you need some help? I managed to hijack the tank, so now I have a vehicle? If you want I can go and help you with it. If we hold that gate, we can avoid having these things spill inside the sector.” >Do not worry, I can handle myself just fine, and if you feel you need me, just resummons me. “Are you sure, I think that this tank can squick those guys very easily… I know you would like it!” >As I said, it would shame me as a servant to have my Master worry for me, please use the vehice you have obtained and rush to safety… plus I have managed to acquire an ally that has joined me in battle. Please do not worry for this old man, my lady. Me and this kind Black Knight will hold the line for you. “I see, thanks Ronove, if you need me to call you just ping me!” You prepare to drive the machine off the museum before Ronove sends you one last message. >Lady… about that message, I believe that love can bloom during all sorts of circumstances… so if you wish for your Sempai to notice you, then you only have to work for it. “Ronove!!!” You blush beat red as you hear what he has to say… really, that about Sempai, your admiration for him is above such base things like lust! Well not really, but you try to tell yourself that…
>>31189415Still you have a tank, and an empty city, while you lack a driver’s permit… you have a tank and have a place to go… so what do you do? >Go to the TSAB Base, a tank is cool and the TSAB will like it too>Go to the Spaceport, get out of here in Style >Go help Ronove, seal that gate! >Eat first, you have time…>Sleep in the tank>Summon... you could have Valefor carry this tank... because Wyvern and Tanks sound cool! >Other>Think about Sempai some more, where could he be? Maybe Eligor could know ... this city is dangerous and you have to save Sempai!!!
>>31189431WE'RE IN A FUCKIN TANK>Go help Ronove, seal that gate
>>31189503Wait no guesses for who is Sempai... I feel kinda sad, considering you have seen this guy before.
>>31189533And the Sempai part had 4chan eat my spoiler text...so now the text I wanted to hide is now in the open... I guess with it guessing who Sempai is will be quite simple.
>>31189431>>Think about Sempai some more, where could he be? Maybe Eligor could know ... this city is dangerous and you have to save Sempai!!!>>31189533Sorry, still thinking about it.
>>31189599No, Ricardo has been too busy to asume a civilian identiy... plus he is too busy thinking about his rematch with a certain idiot to be a cool sempai to Sacchin.
>>31189677Would have been hilarious though.
>>31189698>Sempai please notice me! Stop thinking about that kid in that lewd black armor...>If you want Sempai I can cosplay as Silberkreuz...>Sempai, please like me, like you like Tohma-kun.. ... Now I can see it working... kinda.
Male characters we have met.Not!SquallHadesGrendelYuunoRoberto...is it that kid we met in the North Sector?
>>31189768>>31189386>not a mageNever mind. the he wouldn't have turned into a driver.
>>31189768>>Not!Squall>Hades>Grendel>Yuuno>RobertoYou forgot one last one... he appeared in Ren's interlude and at the start of the arc with Hades. Also thanks for reminding me to add some more males, Tohma needs a bro eventually.
>>31189831Black Knight, Not!Bezerker Bro?I figured it couldn't be him since Ronove is with him right now and didn't mention it.
>>31189621>>31189503We have a tie between searching for Sempai and Tanking to help Ronove... will give you guys some more time to settle this before rolling to choose one. >>31189830Yeah, to become an EC driver, you have to be a mage. That is because the Eclipse works by turning your Linker Core into an engine that produces EC particles.
>>31189866Ill change to >>31189503The sooner we collect Ronove the sooner we can enact our plan to win Senpai's heart.
>>31189863DIng Ding! Yes...The black Shadow is a Inherent Skill that hides the user's identity among other stuff.
>>31189911Just for the record, you guys know you can just summon Ronove at little cost... most of the cost for summoning is the bringing the soul to this plane, once here, then it is easy to move then around.
>>31189939I'd totally forgot about that from his meeting with Hades.Well played.
>>31190013Glad you liked that... >>31189931>>31189911>>31189503Well it does not look you guys have changed anything. >Writing
>>31190227Wait roll me for Driving... show me your Panzercraft skills 3x d100 DC is 20/40/60 Do it for Sempai!
Rolled 69>>31190262High-school girl driving a tank? What could go wrong?
Rolled 76>>31190262FOR SENPAI!
>>31190338>>31190361>>31190367I see... I guess Sacchin has a reason to be sad now.
>>31190392At moments like this, I really think that the dice in /tg/ is evil and hates everyone.>Writing Also what do you tell Ronove when you met him.
>>31190430Driving a tank is really fun! You really should have considered joined that weird Tank Lovers club when everything returns to normal you really can see yourself doing this for a living. “The Great Tank-Driving Summoner!” Would Sempai like you if you had that sort of title…Ah Sempai… >Crash! Boom! Creakkk! Crash! Well no one needed that school… or that hospital… or that park. Well… no one is perfect, so you just have to practice driving this tank a bit more! There is no reason to be sad! Even with your horrible driving skill (which you hope to never tell Sempai about- there goes your dreams of winning his heart through your panzercraft skills) your tank manages to arrive at the western gate, where Ronove should be! “Ronove, I am here! Come to the gate so I can pick you up and we can kill some zombies with my new tank!” You push the pedal to the metal picking up speed as your reach the gate…>Wait my Lady, don’t…And drive into the biggest and more evil looking zombie you can see… the black one! That squiggly shadow surely looks evil, and thus you run over it and crash through the gate, squishing several more weaker zombies (the bloody red ones) with easy. Peaking over the hatchet of your tank (the area right now has been cleared!) you turn towards Ronove… who for some reason is rushing to aid the black monster- who is not shadowy any longer. “Ronove, did you see how good I am, I just crushed those things with my tank, I am sure Sempai will be amazed about this!” Yeah, you should get a national holyday to worship your driving skills, and maybe found a school of Tank Summoning! The Panzercall School of the Wise King! That sounds cool!
>>31190798“My lady… come and see..” Wait, why is Ronove so silent… you slowly crawl outside the massive iron behemoth you just tamed and walk towards your butler… who is holding the evil black shadow monster in his arms. It is covered in black armor, with red lines, it just looked like some Belkan Knight of legend, but more importantly; the helmet broke, and that face… It was Sempai. Sempai was that black knight you ran over! You just ran over Sempai in a Tank! You could feel Sempai’s love leaving you… This is sad… really sad... >Rivaling Record- Summoner Sacchin 02 ENDNEXT: Crisis Hunter (02)
>>31190798>The thing you ran over....jpg>You just ran over Sempai in a Tank! ...this is the most depressing thin I have ever had happen during a quest.This is beyond sad. It's like that one episode from Outlaw Star with the girl and the cats tier sad.
>>31190883At least I have now a reason to post this pic..Well, at least he is not dead, that has to count for something. Plus now you know Sempai's secret, so I am sure you can get closer to him now! Plus this means that Sacchin is a relevant char... Please don't take it this bad...
>>31190940Crisis Hunter II >35 Hours RemainYour name is Tohma Avenir, and you just defeated a weird Eclipse Driver monk and saved a fellow infected from being killed. You carried the unconscious young red haired man (whose book had been stolen by the 3rd Strosek) with you towards the last point you felt Isis and Mira to be in, Lily floated behind you trekked back to the meeting point. You feel quite bad about leaving your two teammates behind with the Monk while you tried to escape, but from what Lily’s Sister told the monk, it appears that Mira and Isis were fine. Not only that, it appears they somehow broke through that unique skill the monk had and made Lily’s sister have to retreat. You wonder how they did that. It wasn’t that you lacked have faith in your teammates, but to you EC Drivers were strong, strong enough that only other EC Drivers could fight them… but maybe that was wrong? “Tohma over here!” Well there is no time to think of this right now… Isis poked her head from a window in a nearby building, with a quick jump you fly inside to meet your two friends. “Nice to see you are still walking, Tohma! It would have been bad if you had gotten yourself killed in our first fight as a team. You too Lily, I am glad that you are still alive and kicking!” Isis just jumped towards you and took the man from your shoulder, “Let me hold this guy for now, I think you need to rest a bit from that battle!” Isis then lays the young man on a nearby bed, it looked so comfortable that you were tempted to sleep as well. Fighting the monk had not been easy, but you had no time to waste, you had to get moving. >[1/2]
>[2/2]“Tohma… your cheek.” Mira points at your right cheek where the monk had touched after the battle, you feel the thing still hot… but it wasn’t an unpleasant feeling. “Eh, do not worry, I am fine, it’s nothing, so are you girls fine? I am sorry I had to leave like that, but I had to protect the boy.” You still feel bad about that, you feel that the fight could have gone better had your team fought together. Next time you will make sure of that. “Do not worry, Sil- no, Tohma, sometimes retreating is a valid strategy in combat, as knight it is something we learn from the beginning.” Mira is still staring at your cheek, it makes you feel weird, “Anyhow, Tohma, Lily, I would not mind resting for a while, I need to take some time to fix my armor from the damage caused by the previous encounter.” Yeah, Mira’s knight armor looked worse for wear, like someone had blown up parts of it to fight… wait, maybe Mira really did that… she probably reactor purged her armor to break off the locks. Sacrificing your defenses to win a battle… that sounds like something a stupid devil might do. “Tohma, I believe it might not be a bad idea to rest too, I… I, believe that your infection levels are too high currently, and resting is the best way to lower them to stable levels.” Lily just looked at you worryingly, but you felt something was a bit off with her, was she fine with meeting her older sister, Strosek the 3rd? Well Isis, Mira and Lily suggest that we rest for a while, and while you feel a bit spent after that battle, that you do not have time to waste… the city depends on you! What do you do? (Each will open a sub-menu). >Rest>Get Moving
>>31191228>>Get MovingApologize for not listening but we're so close to the Stadium that we should probably take the chance and rest there.
>>31191228Get moving! SU-CHAN AND VIVIO ARE WAITING FOR THE D
>>31191228Belkan, questionJust in what kind of situations do you see us using our United Soul ability? Is this one of those?
>>31191330>>31191420OkayHere are more choices>Go to the stadium, you are worried about Vivio and Eins. >Try to sensor things, you need to know how things have changed>Go to the East, the White Machine is there? >Go to the West, she is still waiting...>Go to the South, go to Suchan>Try to find a secure hiding place, you need to rest?>Other? >>31191420Weren't you guys going for the Ricardo Route? How can you betray the pure love of a robot? You monsters...Just joking. >>31191480Yes, it is helping keep morale up, which is why you can push to force your team to move right now, and it is part of the reason you are in control of your team right now (Normally Mira or Isis should have been chosen as Squad Leader). Technically United Soul helps gain the Squad Trust and Loyalty, helps deal with Status Effects (Like Poison or Blind) and Morale Issues (such as failure or when you do something they do not like) and evens give them a bit of DC bonuses if they have very good morale. Generally helps to avoid SQUAD BROKEN ends and makes friends trust you better.
>>31191553>>Go to the stadium, you are worried about Vivio and Eins. >>Try to sensor things, you need to know how things have changed
>>31191553Get to the Stadium, we'll sneak Ricardo a kiss when he sees them~
>>31191642But Ricardo is not in the Stadium... unless you mean Vivio.
>>31191667I know Ricardo isn't there. We'll sneak Ricardo a kiss LATER, is what I mean.
>>31191553>>31191642>>31191667>Ricardo RouteAnd here I thought we we're going for the Takamichi Family harem end?
>>31191618>>31191642Give me a sensor roll, 3x d100DC is 20/40/60 >>31191723So you want to give up and ask Nanoha to take you and join her family? I guess that is one way to settle your differences with her. What happened to your dreams of the Avenir Family? Don't you want to be like Curren?
>>31191761Was thinking more of making Nanoha fall for us then getting Fate too since it's not NTR if you love them both.Having VIvo is obvious and Ein and I suppose Ein as well.That's our Endgame Harem.I wonder if we should go for Ren?
Rolled 75>>31191761I can see the ending!
Rolled 49>>31191761We're gonna go bi. Secret romance with Ricardo, enter Nanoha's family (We love Vivio, just...not like that), have a casual on-off thing with Isis, and Ricardo will be our true love, even if we're too ashamed to admit it.
>>31191873Ren Route... well you would have to prove yourself to be superior to her in all ways... it would be a battle to see who conquers who. >>31191951But Tohma really likes Vivio, it is just that these seven months have been quite lonely... and sometimes I think you guys do not remember that Ricardo hates your guts. >>31191915Success, let me draw you guys a nice map again!
>>31191951>bi>RobertoDo HOLMCROSS qualify as still being on the binary gender range?
>>31192001> sometimes I think you guys do not remember that Ricardo hates your guts.You're telling that to a group who thinks TohmaxNanoha is a forgone conclusion.I'd just explain I as a type of insanity brought upon by the Eclipse Virus.
>>31192001Ricardo hates the Eclipse virus and desires desperately to keep it from ruling over the common person. In that, we are exactly alike. All we have to do is convince him of that.
>>31192106>You're telling that to a group who thinks TohmaxNanoha is a forgone conclusion.To be honest I still find that amusing, really amusing, but sometimes I think that this is my fault, because of how I sold Nanoha in the initial threads as Tohma's ultimate rival. I do find that really ironic and funny at the same time. >>31192003Well, I think someone asked me this already...But yeah, they qualify in the binary gender range because they base their bodies on humans and emulate some of their functions to better understand them and interact with them. These machines are descendants of Eltria's Gears and the Metal Demons of a certain world... so they were made to define themselves to a certain gender, at least mentally. Physically that is another story, as they do not have any working reproductive organs...
>>31192201Long as they got themselves somethin, we aren't looking to bang anyways~
>>31192201>SpoilerNo half HOLMCROSS half EC Driver, Mage Killer Killer Killer babies...It's nice to dream.
>>31192281Well their bodies are made of advanced magical nanomaterials... so if they felt like it, they probably could try imitating those fuctions... like a certain submarine in a certain series.
>>31192319We must now do this.
>>31192001Before you head out, you try to expand your senses feeling the world and the EC particles in the air… since the battle you had against the monk some hours ago, the area has not changed that much, the majority of the infected are still moving towards the north, to the stadium where your friends are, but surprisingly you feel that they are holding themselves… at this rate they probably should be able to hold themselves for a few more hours. But you feel that there is something dangerous that is nearing that area, you feel that you can’t leave it alone. Still to the south, past the Central Area and in the Southern Sector you feel a familiar burst of EC particles… this is that girl… that crystal devil! She is in the Southern Sector for some reason! If she is in the southern area… Su-chan… NO, Commander Yagami is in the area, and you are sure she and Suchan can handle that area by themselves, you have someone you have to save first! “Sorry guys, I know we really should be resting, but we have no time to waste, the stadium is very near, and it needs our help! We can rest once we get there!” You try to rally your tired teammates to go, and somehow manage. Even though tired, Isis, Mira and Lily get up and prepare to fly.“Tohma, who should carry this young man, I feel that he won’t wake up for a while, and I doubt you want to leave him here, right mate?” Isis points to the knocked down red haired driver….
>>31192537Who should carry the kid? Whoever does so, will be encumbered and have difficulties flying and fighting! >Isis>Mira>You “Very well, then lets go Tohma, we have to get there fast! I do not like fighting at night like this…” Isis steps outside of the small apartment your team had taken over, preparing to head towards…>The Stadium… walking slowly to not meet any enemies.>The Stadium- do nap of the earth/terrain hugging flying! >To the East- the White Machine…>To the West- The Outbreak Source>To the South- the Crystal Devil is there
>>31192556>You >The Stadium- do nap of the earth/terrain hugging flying! She said fast and we should at least listen to some of the advice we're given.
>>31192664Sorry guys right now I am getting a bit tired... so I will have to leave this for tomorrow. If this thread is still up tomorrow morning, I promise to continue updating. Once again Sorry, but I promise your Vivio tomorrow!
>>31192771Nothing to Apologize for. Have a good rest, and see you tomorrow.
>>31190883It gets easier when you look at Black Armor dudes past behavior and realize that no, it's not actually a Shiki Tohno proxy. Everything about his attitude in the previous threads are just plain wrong.What it actually is, is a proxy of that fake Shiki who lost his mind after seeing a single glimpse of the actual Shiki's past in Alliance of Illusionary Eyes.I will hold on to the hope that an actual Tohno Shiki proxy shows up. Preferably first as a tap on the Fakers shoulder, followed by a nice, clean decapitation as the Faker turns around thinking "Whu-".
