Previously: A Young Rocket went on a rescue mission to save civilian lives from a shipwreck out at sea. To her surprise and dismay, the ship's repel-tech system had been compromised by a breach in the hull, setting the stage for unknowns to lurk within.

After witnessing an older ranger die in a split second, the young Rocket committed to killing the perpetrator and following another to the source.
Meeting with an Esper leader of the brutal sea monsters, the young rocket attempted to talk down the hostiles, interrupted by the intrusion of a Tentacruel that sought to drown the ship.

Escaping with her life and her friend, the Young Rocket was swept away be a powerful underwater current to a land far and unknown.

Awaking upon a beach, she found herself to be lost and alone. In seeking out her friend, she met Kurojo of the Kahkori and his mentor, Mukon. As fortune would have it, the friendly humanoid "monsters" led her to their home, Kakarkiko village with promises of assistance in finding her friend.

Spending too much time idling, sunset caught them by surprise and the Young Rocket, along with a scared young boy set out into the dark. Finding her friend, and slaying the dreaded Nar-Kage in the process of return, she secured her new friend's position as a man and hunter, while making a name for herself amongst the tribe.

Though she fell ill, it is soon time for her to awaken to continue finding her way home!

Flying upon the back of a monster, Tropius, The Young Rocket's party flew to a settlement called Ferri village upon another island! There, she meet the Ferrines, and enjoys a hot bath after killing a burrow of Pikachu!

You shift in the bath, the warmth of the hot coals below rises up through the pot, tickling your body with heat. You'd read that Ice-types tended to dislike the heat, but it hasn't really been all that bad for you. So long as you're not in it for too long.
You slip on over to Kurojo's back, feeling warm, and not just from the bath. For a moment you really just want to wrap your arms around him... But why?

Taking in a deep breath, you place your palms upon his back, claws retracted and mimic some of those movements that he performed on you. You breath deep into his muscle tissue, transferring soothing waves of aura pulses, soon turning him into putty beneath your ministrations as he relaxes into your touches.

His back is firm, strong and his body is solid while still being lean. A perfect example of a body built for speed and toned through martial arts. Yet there is a frailty there too.
A solid hit from a big enough monster and... Well, only Marine would be able to tough something like that out anyway.

“Sheru is good at this.” He pays a compliment with his beak partway open, lost in the feeling.

“Th-thank you Kurojo.” You mumble to yourself, stopping for a moment with your hands resting against his downy red and yellow feathers.
“You're really pretty Kurojo.” You smile. You suddenly set your ears low as you blush really hard, biting your lip a bit. You didn't mean to say that. What'll he think of tha-

“You're very pretty too Sheru.” He says without hesitation. You feel him shift in the water, turning around to bring a scaly knuckle to your cheek, touching gently.

“Kurojo?” You lower your brow in confusion, touching your cheek as he pulls his hand back, reclining back into the bath. Lowering your head, you have a lot of confused feelings well up inside. Sure, you told yourself that the Kahkori were people.
They're people but... What would the dome think?
>>
>>31630176
Nice that you've got this stuff already pre-written.
>>
oh crap oh geez we're live already and marine hasn't gotten a bath yet
>>
>>31630140
>>31630176
Heh. I love that this Aura stuff, while being a key part of how they fight and survive, also makes the world's best massage.
>>
>>31630176
Think about all the crushes you have back home, ceru.

Ignore the birdman.
>>
>>31630140
Oh, I was archiving the thread just now when I saw that it had already been done. Then I saw that you probably did it yourself.

Shame. I was planning to be more subtle about the lewd implications. NOW THE JOKE IS RUINED.

>>31630216
Speaking of Marine, does she even know that Ceru took a bath with Kurojo?
>>
>Ingenuity(20): Modifies (+5) to any kind of thinking, technique creation, or technique combination roll.
That do something special like Charm does?
>>
>>31630254
It adds to special attacks like tenacity does to physical attacks. Also applies for when performing concerted maneuvers that have been planned with team members.
>>
>>31630176
>They're people but... What would the dome think?
Well, Bruno is one of the Elite Four, so...

Also, does he even grafts?
>>
>>Vacuum Wave(2): A quick strick that uses the air itself as a conduit for the aura. It hits quick and from afar, delivering damage. <Aura>

Would it be possible to indicate that VW gets a boost from H2h rank? It just seems like something that should be there. Also, it says "strick" instead of strike.
>>
>>31630242

Realisticly, we're never going to decide if we try to vote for consensus.

Devon is my favorite, but Kurojo has more plot hooks
>>
>>31630242
Well, if nothing else, this experience provides a transitional point for that facet of Ceru's character.

>>31630303
Yeah. He did impress the Machop people with FEATS OF INHUMAN STRENGTH, after all.
>>
>>31630275
I meant the rank 20 thing. Charm gets the autosuccess against nonhostile sentients that have low enough Cha/Ten. I was just wondering if Ing does something similar.
>>
>>31630353
Oh, Prof probably hasn't thought of one yet since he converted our Perception points into Ingenuity on the spur of the moment.
>>
>>31630339
>Devon
>not Goldie masterace
>>
>>31630342
>Yeah. He did impress the Machop people with FEATS OF INHUMAN STRENGTH, after all.

I thought he was just that good?

Also where would he even get that from except from Machops?
>>
>>31630353

I doubt Ingenuity will be contested as often as charm, it seems mostly to boost your own rolls
>>
>>31630317
Makes sense.

Though Force Palm would fit better.
>>
>>31630395
>Also where would he even get that from except from Machops?
There are other pokemon with superstrength, anon.
>>
“Sheru?” He seems concerned, obviously sensing your welling feelings. He's very calm about it too, at least on the surface. Beneath? You're not sure, your too confused to tell.

Standing up, you feel a foot touch the epicenter of heat and let out a loud yowl in pain before falling back in, sending the water splashing out of the bath.

Some of the ferrines tending coals perk to attention as you try to get up and out of the bath. It's not long before you feel a pair of hands grasp you from underneath your arms and hoist you out of the water, setting you out of the bath.

You thank Kurojo as you plop right down on your rear and blow cold air on your burned foot, trying to sooth the pain. It'll get better if you rest it in the water.

Kurojo follow you out, shaking off some of the water as it runs down his nearly sparkling feathers, his mohawk-like crest too wet to display proudly. “Sheru, are you okay?”

“Y-yeah Kurojo. I just...” You think better of what you're about to say,”Can we go to bed now?”

He nods and chats it up with the Ferrines, some of them seem to be chuckling about your little experience before Kurojo gets back to you,” Sheru, come, they have bed for us.” He seems to consider something else, “Sheru, they're happy that you enjoy water.”

Your ears stand up as you hop to a foot,”What? Why?”

“They shaid that Smorodhans hate it.”

“Oh, uh. Huh. What are they anyway? You just said mean before...” You take an experimental step, nearly hissing at the pain.

“You'll meet in shity. Need help?”

>[] Let him assist you.
>[] You can walk fine on your own.
>>
>>31630342
>>31630395
I always thought Bruno didn't have any implants.
>>
>>31630399
I'm not asking if it gets the boost, Prof already confirmed that it does. I'm just asking him to indicate it in the bin because it's not exactly the most obvious modifier to apply since VW is a ranged attack.
>>
>>31630422
Why did you think that?

Only espers don't need implants.

>>31630418
>[] Let him assist you.

He's a friend, Ceru! Relaaaax!

>[x] Let him assist you.

I don't wanna ship but this one is interesting and you could probably use a hand
>>
>>31630418

Romantic subplot or not, when you can't even put your foot down without it hurting like fuck, you don't walk around on your own.

We've walked off surgery before, this aint shit.

Tenacity points ho!
>>
>>31630418
>[] Let him assist you.

Oh Ceru. Haven't you ever heard of a Mayflower Romance? I did, but only in passing. I don't even know if I'm using it correctly.

Regardless, let him help out.
>>
>>31630418
>[] You can walk fine on your own.

Strong and independent woman.
>>
>>31630446
I always thought the fact that there was a dojo (bruises adopted dad runs it) means that humans can grow to be that good, Espers just shut them down.
>>
it comes down to this:

Hastened foot healing, or potential tenacity? Which is more important?
>>
>>31630418
>[] Let him assist you.

still a ways to go before we get home, best not to risk aggravating anything
>>
>>31630418
>[] Let him assist you.

Heh. Don't touch the heat, Ceru.

>[] Let him assist you.

You both misheard and are using it wring.
>>
>>31630572
Well, it was something with a movie where ROMANCE happened for a short time, but the characters got separated and fell out of love to continue with their own lives.

THERE'S A REFERENCE WAITING TO HAPPEN HERE.
>>
Letting him help wins... Rawr.
>>
>>31630487
Its Mayfly-December romance and its when a couple each have different life expediencies

>>[] You can walk fine on your own.

>>31630622
Reminds me of 5 centimeters per second.
My fucking heart.
>>
>>31630533
He's probably right anon, we've gotten points for toughing out stuff before.

But I prefer the character defining stuff anyway. We can always train later when we are safe to up tenacity. We still have the Macho Brace and all.

>>31630623
Looks like Professor is enjoying himself too.
>>
>>31630631
Yeah, I saw that while searching.

There's something else, anon. I just KNOW it.

>>31630649
I heard that was a heart churner, man... I haven't even read any summaries for it since I don't want to know how much it actually hurts. I am a sensitive soul.
>>
>>31630661
About that. Since Prof said he had REASONS for wanting us not to have Macho Brace with us, I'm thinking he was going to have Bruise evolve while we're out and need the Macho Brace to restrict his strength. Depending on whether or not the Dome is able to develop a power-save belt, we might not have access to the Macho Brace for a while.
>>
>>31630666
I just put it on with the dubs.
I'm fine with it breaking my heart to heal my soul.
>>
>>31630666
Star Crossed?
>>
>>31630707
Nah, nah, something like what I was saying over here
>>31630622

Maybe it had something to do with a mailbox and TIME TRAVELING LETTERS? My sister made me recently download a number of romance movies, all of which I watched to GUARANTEE QUALITY. Because I go all the way.
>>
>>31630703
>We won't have it for a while
Oh I figured. And it'd be rad if Bruise did evolve too...er...if not terrifying... Still. It's ours, and we'll get to use it again eventually.
>>
>>31630623


Be gentle Professor

remember we're weak to fighting

I can't handle all this shipping Prof, you're tearing me apart! I already had one ship for Devon and a small /u/boat for Lilac and now all of a sudden this big Kurojo ship comes barging in causing a lot of disturbances in my waters of love. When will it end!?

>>31630976
It's just for fun, anon, don't sweat it. Think of this like...Ceru's evolution into puberty.

Uh, that's always how it's been with romantic interests. I'm just talking about understanding her own feelings on the matter. Like a normal person.

>Ceru's at that age where boys aren't so gross

Only when we commit. We need to leave a perfumed declaration of love in the locker/nest/cave of our chosen boy/girl/bird/cougar telling them to meet us under the tropius.
>>
>>31631103
He's more of a bird boy, actually, since he's apparently only 14 (but his body must be rather well developed).
>>
The CeruxLilac /u/boat shall sail and sail strong!
I can't decide between Devon, Bruise and Kurojo though...
>>
>>31631161
W-w-why are they all well-muscled, anon? I'm sure Goldie could get real toned if he put effort into it!
>>
>>31630999
She's going to need to get a lot of "experience" for that evolution though

Unless it's an item evolution
>>
>>31631192
>I'm sure Goldie could get real toned if he put effort into it!
Nope. His implant is making him frail as fuck.
>>
You raise up a hand, still feeling that blush beneath your fur, “Yes.” You mewl, and he offers his back to you, allowing you to hop on. Snuggling against his wet feathers, you nuzzle his neck and let yourself relax. At least he's not looking at you...

Marine passes by the two of you with another of the little ferrines leading her to the bath, mowing about as she nods and says, “Uh huh” now and then. She looks to you and Kurojo, stopping suddenly with a curious look in her eyes,”Hey Ceru, Kurojo. What happened?”

“I burnt my foot.” You smile a little painfully, Kurojo nods, stopping as well.

“Ah, I should be careful then too,” Marine giggles as the cat pulls on her trousers, mowling. “She's been talking my ear off...” Marine ruffles her hair, carrying on,”I'll see you in bed Ceru, take care of that foot.”

Kurojo takes you from the bathing chamber and takes you to the common room, large enough for not just ferrines, but their guests. You lay back on a pillow and examine your foot as it quickly turns blue, sighing at the tingling pain running through your foot you ask Kurojo if you could get some water to soak your foot in.
A ferrine soon complies, giving you what must be a basin to them, about a bowl to you. After donning your armor to preserve some modesty you soak your foot while Kurojo examines his blade with some of the ferrines attracted to its shininess.

You feel refreshed from the bath, and when Marine comes around the Ferrines bring you a helping of pikachu meats. Kurojo explains that the ferrines are very good at making food, though you need no convincing to eat the mouse meat, feeling the residual tingle of voltage sacs and battery muscles sparkling in your jaw. It's like eating a meaty soda that melts in your mouth... You can't explain the seasonings, but it's absolutely scrumptious.
>>
>>31631215
The implant doesn't have anything to do with it. He just has normal human body muscles, is all. That's more resistant to poison, apparently.

What was Prof's explanation for that typing advantage, again? Maybe, since mediums apparently gain an increased m-virus count from acting as mediums, one could just say espers produce a certain kind of antibody? Connect the psychic powers more to some sort of biological function.
>>
>>31631238
>“She's been talking my ear off...” Marine ruffles her hair
Does Marine understand what the Ferrine was saying?
>>
>>31631215
I think it's more than he just uses his psychic powers to move himself around instead of actually using his muscles. Like early on, back when we were all training. Fucker just teleports everywhere.

Then he gets muscle atrophy and low, low Tenacity, since he absolutely cannot tough out anything with his weak muscles.
>>
>>31631238
>voltage sacs and battery muscles
Those japanese will eat anything
>>
>>31631238
>examine your foot as it quickly turns blue

Do we legitimately have blue blood because of our Ice Body or something?
>>
>>31631269
That was earlier on in his training, when he was being petulant. Now he's performing the full training course properly. Like a Rocket!

>>31631238
>feeling the residual tingle of voltage sacs and battery muscles sparkling in your jaw
Dragon's Crown did a better job of making food made from dead monsters appetizing.
>>
>>31631300
Yeah. Ceru blushes blue too. Her blood also frosts people on contact. She regulates her own body temperature through the freezer sac array on her body.
>>
>>31631301
What if eating Pikachu is like eating pop rocks?
>>
>>31631328
That's exactly what it's like.
>>
>>31631253

Psychics can probably sense when a poisonous animal is going for the bite and dodge, making the quick strike much less effective.
>>
>>31631339
Delicious.
>>
>>31631253

Psychic powers break the poison's molecules, and/or screws the immune system of poisonous monsters.
>>
Psychic doesn't resist Poison, but it super-effects it.
>>
>>31631347
Nah, that's basically Detect. Psychics don't sense intent, but read minds which Prof is making resistible.

>>31631372
>>31631362
Ah, well, let's just go with this.
>>
>>31631339
so which mon is like coke?
>>
>>31631387
Curing effects in the game are also Psychic-type, or used by Psychics in general. So they still have a defensive advantage over Poison and the like by virtue of techniques.
>>
After taking stock of your equipment, you go to sleep in a pile of dry leaves and grasses. You'll need to wash again in the morning but it feels good sleeping in another new place. Your time away from the dome has been so different...

Morning comes with the sun filtering in through some open holes at the sides of the common lodge.
You stretvh out, tuching a furry ferrine butt that's fallen asleep not far from you. You push another one off of your stomach and shake one off of your leg. Disturbing their sleep as you get up, stretching out and feeling your foot. All better.

You smile.

Kurojo and Marine rise too, brushing off dry grasses. The three of you suit up and greet the morning with a little bit of breakfast courtesy of the ferrines. The one with a black tail and stripes keeps mewling away at Marine, sharing in breakfast with you three as Marine just keeps acknowledging that the little cat's said something. It sure likes to talk her ear off.

Kurojo goes out to check on the Tropius, saying that he'll be a while...

The Ferrine that's been mewling away at Marine, points the two of you at a boat within the village limits.

Well, a swim could be nice...

Sounds nice. It's been a long time. Besides we could use the exercise. Ask Marine if she wants to come and swim with us.
>>
>>31631529
>[X] Walk around the village, check out the locals.

While a swim would be nice, we should try to see as much of the village as possible. Both because I find it interesting, and also because of ELITE. (Returning home to report that "yeah, we were in a village of creatures that we have no current records of, but I went for a swim instead of finding out more" isn't very Rocket.)

With Kurojo atteneding to the tropius, you and Marine decude to talk a walk around the village, despite her little friend's mewlings. You sense her disappointment, though it's short-lived. It's weird though, listening to the little cat and hearing it go on about things. You feel that most of it's just about nothing in particular at the least, just a cat happy to have someone to talk to as she meows on and on.

You open up your index and take a picture when she isn't looking, typing in some basic information about the ferrines.
Friendly, willing to trade, don't like freeloaders... Kurojo told you about that last bit. The ferrines only open up when they've been given something first. They don't like promises.

You snap some pictures of the village. The huts made of dirt and grass, further on behind their palisade are some small farmlands being tended to nice and early by some ferrine farmers. It raises up a stink that attacks your nose with the full on force of nature.
Plugging your nose, you quickly extract yourself from the manure sight, headed to another little series of huts.

You take pictures of some females weaving baskets, some kits sleeping all in a pile at their mother's feet as she fletches arrows with her dextrous little paws.
The ferrines don't seem to mind your presence too much overall, which must mean that they see a lot of strangers coming through, at least, after doing something for them.
>>
You notice at one point a black ferrine looking shifty, watching you from afar. You sense that it's sizing you up somehow as you walk through the village. You alert Marine and the little ferrine leading the two of you looks over at the black ones, her fur instantly standing on end as she growls and hisses, hurrying you two away.

You run from the black ones for a bit before the end their chase, seeming to laugh and have their own good little time as they run off. The little striped ferrine runs off and talks to some of the other locals, seeming to inform them of the black ones as you and Marine can only scratch your heads as they start to raise alarm, dashing here and there with little meows.

Huh... Well then.

Wave/Aura. The Nar-kage was feared because it couldn't be sensed, but we'll be fine here. Aside from our implants that let us hunt better, one of Detect's passive uses is to feel for life.
>>
>>31632607
>>31632622
Not if we let them know we're more than capable of killing them without our gear. The way they're described, they sound like the local troublemaking gang, and seeing us acting like the tourist makes us seem harmless and ripe for picking.
>>
>>31632647
All of our equipment is physically integrated into our harness. The only thing in danger of getting stolen is our supplies for the trip, since we're probably not carrying them around.
>>
Seeing the distress, you run on ahead after the small mob chasing after the black ferrines as Marine calls out to you, surprised by your sudden jump into action.
“Ceru, what are you doing!?”

“They look bad, I'm gonna help. Come on, they fed us!” You call back to your friend as she bedgrudgingly starts to move.

“What even are they? Mina freaked out when she saw them.” The two of you slip around the little huts, and pass up the mob chasing after the laughing black cats as they mark up houses with their claws and knock over vases, snatching baskets of dried food and grasses. It's a small gang of something like twenty of them wreaking havoc where they can before snatching something and running off at the first sign of trouble.

One with a half-bitten ear looks at you with yellow eyes before seeming to smile with its teeth showing. It brings a claw up just below its eyes and pulls down while sticking out a tongue and blowing a razz-berry at you.

Huh? No need for that. Maybe a nerfed spidey sense, but if we dump that much effort into Detect, then it'd make sense to be passive.
>>
>>31633418
>Allows you to feel the intentions of sentient beings.
This is already a passive ability. So yeah, detection in and of itself IS passive. It's the actual DODGING that needs a stamina cost.
>>
You ignore the thing's taunt and level your gun to it's face, bringing your other up to cover the flank opposite of Marine.

You blast a jet of water across the way, nailing the naughty feline in the head and sending it sprawling back as another jumps at you, swinging staff with a claw at the end of it, your eyes zero in and your free gun aligns to blast that one away too as Marine takes care of things on her own end, spitting out a dark mixture of water and mud, the excess dripping from her mouth.

Another ferrine tries to swipe at her feet, but she meets it early and sends it flying with a kick. You can hear it yelling out with a meow as it's sent blasting off.

The rest of the black ferrines begin to back off as the cavalry of other angry cats arrive. A spitting and hissing match taking place between them as the black ones begin to back off to the palisade. You keep your guns ready in case they decide to attack again...

Once their back finally hits the wall, the black cats realize just how cornered they are and growl angrily.

They open their maws and begin to yowl, raising the pitch to brutally high levels...

The escalated sound grates against your ears, forcing you to fold then shut and cover them, but the sound still hits you hard, forcing you to stand stationary, doing all that you can to keep your head from exploding at the shrill sound.

You're seeing stars as the ferrine militia and Marine stand just as stunned, trying to block out the wretched sound.

The black one's stop abruptly and cheese it over the fence, scratching up and jumping over, disappearing beyond into the tall grass and leaving you stunned and a bit confused on what all that was about.

You growl deeply in your throat, angry at the fleeing black cats as you push off against the dusty village road and jump off of a hut before vaulting over the palisade, running on through the grass with conviction. Marine projects herself overhead with a blast of her water sac, rolling off the fall as she rolls through the grass to your side.

“Marine, we're getting them!”

“Alright Ceru, how are we doing this?!” She runs on at your side, Rattata darting out of your way as you push through the grass after the bad cats.

Green grasses are cast aside as you make your way after them. You can sense them, feel them even if it's a faint and far-off feeling.

Your pursuit draws you closer, and closer until... You feel something big coming up... but how did you miss that? They're headed right for it.

You stop just short, seeing them swing around one of those duck-billed monsters from before, harrassing it as it tries to shake them off, sweeping its tail across the grasses before you hear a loud mowl, and one of their little black claws pointing in your direction. Another one sidles up right at the monster's heel and slashes it, spurring it onward as one rides upon its head, sending it into a wild frenzy as it charges you!

Heh. Reminds me of what I do when I'm in a dungeon group that's going poorly due to bads.
Step 1: Warn the teammates who are pulling their weight, that they should probably stand back.
Step 2: PULL ALL THE THING
Step 3: LEAD ALL THE THING TO TEAMMATE
Step 4: Teleport the hell out.

Also, remember: Lock every door possible. People hate when you do that.
I can't count how many people are defeated by the almighty Closing Door boss.
>>
>>31634327
Okay, strategy. Water Gun and Icy Wind to freeze the ground to try and make the monster slip up. Use that chance to fire off icicles at its throat sack.

Marine should fire off a Vacuum Wave at it AS it is slipping to knock it down, then soak it with her Water Gun to increase Icy Wind's effectiveness.
>>
Seems the consensus is freeze the ground and then shoot icicles, aiming at the throat.

Water gun ground+icy wind

There's a sidegame where you take on the role of one of the station's crewmen and you have to do your daily job without dying (to incompetence, random station failure, or murderers) but nobody bothers with it since you'll get banned by the people playing the Admin Abuse main game.

Ah, I see, so if it's more quicker (ie; more relevant to the IMMEDIATE situation), then it gets a bonus.

Question, though, are we not maintaining our Icy Wind? I thought that if we used multiple moves in the same "turn", then they would be averaged out?

What rank on Quick Attack would unlock GO FAST movement like the khakori used to jump all over the place?

Hey Prof. An idea suddenly occurred to me.

Could we chain together Quick Attack (once it's at rank 3) with Icy Wind so that its debuffs apply immediately? So instead of waiting for the next turn for the debuff to start coming, we could just spend a little extra stamina to get the debuffs in the current turn and proceed normally from there?

Presumably, we think they're just criminals of the tribal people here. So it's not that we should be aiming to kill them, but to apprehend them for the Ferrines. Treat them as we would criminals of the Dome.

The monster charges at you, thrashing about violently as it tumbles toward you through the grass, breathing out a gas from its beak that stings your nostrils even at a distance. You set to work, ejecting as much as you can in a short time frame befoire launcing an icy wind to freeze it over, but it's not working fast enough!

Marine launches a one-two of air distorting aura punches that make the thing flinch, but only slightly as she braces for impact, sensing something amiss.

Bringing its wing-claws together, the Pecu ignites the air, causing a spark that causes the air to burst into flames, igniting that stink and the grasses around you as you're thrown back by the sudden violent burst of fire.

Rolling backward, you feel your hair singe and fray, your flesh burnt and pained even as the thing charges at marine, spitting out more of that gas before igniting it with its wings.

You steady your gun and fire icicles at its throat and head, nailing it good and turning it's attention towards you. It swings a huge fan-like tail to buffet the flames that linger upon the grasses, making them roar even more and sending Marine rolling back before she unfolds herself and buckles down, glancing over at you with her clothes almost entirely set into smolders.

The Bird monster's throat is bloody with the ice already melting in the wound. That red sack's been mostly deflated, though that just seems to make it angrier...

Marine's Gravestone Inscription:

"Sweet, but not Elite."

...haha, who am I kidding? Rangers don't get gravestones, they get a tiny little name marker on the humongous Dead Ranger Memorial.

...and I made myself sad. Damn.
>>
>>31636004
YUS!

+8 BOSS BONUS IS OURSSSS! If the cats don't end up running away, anyway.

>>31636141
Maybe they get a gravestone in the Spire. Remember, it's larger on the inside than you think it looks from the outside. And it's already pretty friggin' large from the outside.
>>
>>31636080
Dead painful?
Or scar painful?
>>
>>31636141
Nah, they just carve them into the glass of the Dome.

It's already half full
>>
>>31636162
"Oh fuck our arm came off again" painful, probably.
>>
>>31636162
Painful. So, something like getting your arm sliced off, but tailored to reflect the Qapeca's natural weapons. A really hard PECK, maybe. It's beak is large enough to make it really hurt.
>>
>>31636141
You mean the Spire?

In the games and anime, the tombstones are pretty standard fare.

Although, this is an island with a different culture. Wonder what their burial rituals are like. Not that we're going to see that happening to anyone we know.
>>
>>31636202
>Wonder what their burial rituals are like.
Judging from the pikachu, they get buried in OUR BELLY. Or someone else's belly. Either way, OM NOM NOM NOM NOM
>>
>>31636202
Citizens may get a normal burial. Considering that Rangers are most likely going to die outside of the Dome than inside it, they probably just get an inscription. Rangers who live to a ripe old age and die within the Dome? Maybe they get a regular burial. That or they get their bodies burned up, to reflect their solidarity with the other Rangers who did not get the privilege of dying peacefully at home.

This is, of course, discounting whatever specific customs each quarter in the Dome has for mourning the dead. I'm guessing Cerulean Quarter practices a water burial.
>>
>>31636193
It could probably give us a severe burn or blow off a limb with its fire attacks. And it's got a corrosive spit attack that probably works like acid in AoPH. If nothing else, it's big enough to break bones just with a kick or tackle.

>>31636202
...and now I feel dumb for forgetting about the Spire. I just wanted to make a joke, but now I'm just embarrassed.

>>31636354
Depending on our position, we could potentially be in a prime position to kill it. Like, if we're riding on its back, for example. Frost Breath to the brain.

Depending on whether or not we manage to kill the Qurapeco, here's to hoping that the Ferrines can craft something with it. Not necessarily anything like our armor. Just a little souvenir for the occasion. A feather poncho for Marine, maybe.

“Marine,” your eyes shift over to your friend as she huffs and puffs, staring down the rampaging monster thrashing across the burning field.
“Marine!” You yell, getting her attention as her eyes snap to you. “Max Repel! Put out the fire, I'm fighting!”

You pop open your index and engage the field, your aura sense completely disrupted as you vanish from sight, hearing, and psychic sensing. This is an all or nothing, you won't have long to fight like this and Marine won't be able to see you either.
It doesn't take long for her to deploy hers either, vanishing from your sight. Both running blind from each other now.

You slip in, running forward despite the painful burns that've singed down your pretty fur. Your fat protects the insides from the worst of the damage, but it hurts to move. It hurts to run. Like your entire body wants to be on fire and your armor isn't helping either. Being made of steel, it's burning against your flesh... But you, you're a rocket.

The enemy bird seems confused as its targets have vanished, the cat on top scratching its head too, ears flickering about, large yellow eyes glaring about curiously, looking for the two of you.

A blast of water from right underneath the monster sends the ferrine sprawling off the monster, even as it adjusts its position in midair.
>>
>>31636467
Post what you got, let's just not run from it.

Then we can kill it.

Will make for a great gift for the Ferrines.
>>
>>31636467
Just chase down the Melynx. We're still disadvantaged against it.

If we're still good to go after it runs down the cats, then we can try to kill it.
>>
>>31636467
Kill the Quru or the ferries?
>>
>>31636499
>You shouldn't, because it always does.
Nah, it doesn't.

What does become a habit is people becoming overly shy towards any and all rolling.

>>31636467
Depends. If we let it chase down the black cats, can we try and finish it off afterward? If not, then I'd rather we kill it now. Just from looking at the previous bonuses for them, we've got them outmatched in a straight battle.
>>
You launch an icicle at the beast's haunch to kick it into go, running at the Ferrines as they scatter into the grasses. You feel a sprinkle of water on your head as Marine takes care of the fires.
You dive out the way of the monster's fanning tail as it charges in the opposite direction, leaving you and Marine be.

You give yourself some distance, giving attention to the location of the water spray and slide right on in besides the distortion.

Tapping your index, you shut off MAX repel just in time to save a sliver of power. 1% it says, heh. You shut down your system.

“Marine, we're clear, let's go see Kurojo.” You stretch a little to assess your own damage.

Hair- singed, gonna need cutting.
Fur- Burnt away from your arms and the peach fuzz on your face got hit. Ear fur's charred too.
Your skin hurts, but nothing too terribly deep. Ugh, you hate getting burned. You grimace as much as it hurts to move right now.

Marine's worse for wear too, she didn't exactly get out of that explosion unscathed either with her clothes falling off in burnt tatters. Her skin's discolored too, getting white and blotchy. She was closer to the blast.

You're both hurting pretty bad. That thing is no joke...

Except we -should- avoid rolling whenever possible, because rolling casts us into a place where we can plan perfectly and still get screwed over by a poor roll.

And it -is- very common for people to take a little luck and assume it makes them invincible. It's already happening here with people voting to chase down and kill the felynes after we did this specifically to get them and the bird away.

It doesn't matter, though, since it won't affect our special attacks.

Ceru and Marine both look like burnt toast, and the Peco is still in decent condition. We fucked up the Melynx, let's go before we really get hurt.

You're welcome.

>>31637122
Uh, we'll get XP from this, anon, don't you worry. A kill isn't needed, after all. It's the experiences. That's why it's called XP.

>>31637127
I wasn't there.

What happened?
>>
>>31637147
Some guys talking about raping and eating people.
>>
>>31637087
I assume they were only pretending to want loot, because they wanted us to die to a 12-foot flaming bird that we only wounded superficially, while we were wounded pretty badly by the fucking explosion even with our Thick Fat.

If they made that such a decision thinking it was a GOOD idea, going up against a 12-fucking-foot flaming bird that we only wounded superficially, then they are obviously very, very special people

>>31637139
Yeah but now we don't get to bring bakc the bodies of the b.ferrines or the body of the querpeco

Oh I know we'll get some. I just figure fighting and trying to kill it again would get us more.

I prefer the safe option anyway.
>>
>>31637147
Dran being silly with his goof-off quest, QTG being itself.

>>31637178
It was hitting us with a -4 penalty, which is significant enough to make me want to avoid combat.
>>
>>31637163
We were barely wounded at all.

We take half dam from fire and had a minor burn, we're a gunner anyway.

We have only superficial damage to us and a burn.
>>
>>31637163
Maybe next time.

I think that if we got the jump, we probably COULD take a Quorpeco.

Now, if a Diablos shows up, THEN we run like a motherfucker.
>>
>>31637173
I really don't think they want the bodies of the Melynxe. They're just assholes, not enemies.
>>
>>31637200
-4 to physical attacks and some positioning rolls.

We're a gunner anyway.
>>
>>31637205

that doesn't sound very superficial to me

>>31637216
I'm also not sure if I want them dead or not, but they ARE assholes.

They're definitely enemies.

Ice shard is technically physical. Then again water gun is special.
>>
>>31637240
>>31637243
Yeah, well now -they- get to deal with an angry firebird instead of us.
>>
>>31637253
Only physical if we touch them with our body during it, since that is the nature of how Burn affects things, since pain hurts and touching something with a burned area hurts.
>>
>>31637253
I assumed icicle gun was counted as special?
>>
>>31637289
It should be.
>>
>>31637253
Because Ice Shard assumes we throw the things.

Gun attacks should all be special.
>>
>>31637253
There's a Psychic attack that uses the Special Attack stat, but deals Physical damage.

So maybe we can do some reclassification.
Vacuum Wave uses Attack, but does Special damage?

>>31637286
Moves can do Physical damage, but not actually make contact with the enemy. Even in the games, this is handled by a hidden true/false value that determines making contact, which is why Earthquake doesn't put you at risk of being affected by Static.
>>
>>31637353
Then Burn should only affect moves that make actual physical contact with the enemy.

Vaccum Wave shouldn't get a penalty since all you're really doing is punching the air.
>>
You look over Marine's damage and give her a brief nod, “It's over”

She gives a painful grimace as she holds the scorched shell of her arms, soft tissue between the plates burned white,”Yeah, I'm way done with that thing.”

You turn and head back to the village with her, limping a bit yourself from the scratch that feline gave you in passing. The rest of them having fled, it's nice that they're giving you this reprieve.
Back on the battlefield, a swath of burnt grasses, the Duck monster rampaging after the ferrines.

Well, at the very least it's not after the two of you.

It's a painful walk back to the village.


The ferrines treat your burns with some salves, mowling and mewling about you with aggravated and condescending tones. You get the feeling that they didn't want you to interfere with... well, whatever that business was.

Kurojo returns, claiming that the tropius are ready to leave. That they saw smoke and decided that it was time.
When you ask him about the black Ferrines, he chuckles,” Thieves, but friends and famiry of ferrines. Merrinx they are known as. These ferrines are the rinnians. They do not enjoy strangers.”

“Oh.” You say with an almost flat face. You and Marine suffered burns, and nearly burnt down the fields... when the feud was about the two of you, if that. You hold your head in your hands, bemoaning how stupid that was, why'd you get involved?

Kurojo chuckles at you and pats your head,”Happy your safe Sheru.” He looks over to Marine, “You too.”

“Gee, thanks.” Marine rolls her eyes, flinching as a rinnian applies their tribal remedy burn heal for a second round.

You spend till noon getting the worst burns healed up.
>>
>>31637396
Good thing we didn't go full murder on them.
>>
>>31637396
I KNEW IT WAS ODD THAT THE MELYNX AND THE FERRINES WEREN'T GETTING ALONG
>>
>>31637396
Ok, from now on we should -really- check with Kurojo before throwing ourselves into this kind of mess.
>>
>>31637382
It still hurts to even move when you have a burn.

But we'll have to see what Ygg says about this. Maybe Vacuum Wave is based on Special after all.
>>
>>31637396
Tropius go time.
Where to now?

We'll probably need to find more berries for the Tropius.
>>
Well, I guess this wasn't a TOTAL loss. we did gather some interesting intel on the Peco. stuff that we probably could have gotten from Kurojo, but intel none the less
>>
Good thing we didn't go full murdermode.That would've been horrible for relations.
>>
>>31637533
Mm. In retrospect, we really should have killed the Qurapeco instead of letting it go to chase after the merrinx, though. It's regrettable.
>>
Begrudging the state of your hair and your fur, a rinnian helps you out by cutting off the burnt bits, shortening you down to a more medium length. You almost cry at the loss of your hair, but you let It happen. You'll remember that attack for next time. It telegraphs with gas before it ignites... alright.

You go to punch that data into your index, realizing that your system's dead from using the MAX setting. You go to change out your orb with the other, reaching for the pod on your leg... and finding it missing.

Where did... Where did it go? You had it on you this morning. You had it this morning and then...

>Merrinx cat burglar used thief! Volt Orb, Paralysis-heals, and Antidotes are gone!

You had it and then... The cut.. The cut on your leg! Those damn merrinx stole your supply!

Can't let the Melynx have a Voltorb.
We should tell Kurojo, and the Felynes here, that the Melynx stole something very precious to us, and we need to get it back.

To avoid going in like a dumbass and getting owned twice, ensure everything we have is safely stored or secured before moving out.
>>
>>[] Lock and load, you're going to hunt them down and take it back!

That's it. Catbody plait, here we go.

These cats are either Normal or Dark types.

So either way, vwave will fuck em up.

>>31637396
>You hold your head in your hands, bemoaning how stupid that was, why'd you get involved?

Making us feel like idiots here, Ygg. You know some of us don't have meta knowledge on Melynxes. And these in particular were pretty villainous, anyways, owning weapons and siccing lethal, dangerous monsters on us.
>>
>>31637578
>[] Lock and load, you're going to hunt them down and take it back!

Tell Kurojo to tell the ferrines that we're going after our stolen stuff. Tell them that one of the things they stole is dangerous and could hurt the merrinx if we don't retrieve it from them. This should help convince the ferrines to cooperate with us in trying to retrieve our stuff.
>>
>>31637694
They are Cat type.

Only weak to balls of Yarn.
>>
>>31637578
>>31637700
This. Even if the ferrines are hesitant in going after their cousins, telling them that they're in danger because of something they stole from us will help to get their assistance in the matter.
>>
>>31637700
Nah, let's just say they stole very important shit and we will kill them if we don't get it back.
>>
>>31637699
It was more like Ceru being hard on herself for making a snap decision.
Not really a big deal.
>>
>>31637722
This is true. You know how dangerous Voltorbs can be. Handle them inappropriately and you WILL electrocute yourself.
>>
>>31637738
Are you the guy who's constantly been suggesting we just kill the merrinx?

Why do we have to threaten them? Just tell them the truth; the merrinx stole something dangerous that could kill them. There. Easy cooperation.

>>31637786
As long as we make sure they don't get another monster to loose on us, and keep our ears plugged, it should be easy to just rough up the Meyinx and take our stuff back.
>>
>>31637765

No, I am. I think if we do intend on killing them we should just go and do it without telling the friendly ones. If the merrinx want to bitch at us for getting murdred they are welcome to try and see what reception they get.
>>
>>31637818
How?

We simply tell the ferrines "Hey, what they took is very important to me and could save my life several times over, I'm going to get it back even if i have to kill to get it"

"So your family stole this thing and it's pretty important and kinda dangerous too. I'm gonna go take it back, even if I have to brutally murder them to do it. Hope you're cool with that and/or try to stop me so I can kill you too."

See that? That's how you sound.

Yeah, and see, that's why people are telling you that you don't have any idea how to handle the situation at all.
>>
>>31638089
And what we have been trying to say is that that is not a diplomatic way to -start- things.

If they'd been like "yeah, we don't like you, so your stuff can rot in a hole"
then we could have moved on to the "this is very serious and I wont shy from hurting people" stance.

But yes, we've succeeded diplomacy anyways, so it's fine to drop it.

We should totally ask Kurojo if his people or the Felyne have encountered the Hypno in the past. As well as the Dagoons, Machop, and Abra if we know what one looks like.

Could gather valuable intel.
>>
You raise this grievance with Kurojo, whom relays it to one of the nearest Rinnians, whom gets another rinnian, whom gets a black and white Ferrine, “Mina” that Marine had named earlier.

You talk to the cats, nearly crying about your lost supplies and how badly you need them to get home, and that the merrinx took them and how you're sorry about what happened and everything as Kurojo translates.

The assembled Ferrines all seem to mowl in agreement, and then look to Mina with a bit of a scrutinizing glare.

She mows nice and slow,”Mii ett hisshuff.” She murbles out broken words before padding off.

Kurojo shakes his head, eyes closed as his red mohawk waves, “She is half merrinx. She's getting your things. They enjoy the way you talk Sheru.”

You sigh, shaking your own head,”They wouldn't know what I'm saying if you weren't here Kurojo. How long do we need to wait?”

“She comes back in afternoon, we just need to wait.” Kurojo sits down upon a rock as his long sword rests upon his back, almost longer than himself.

“Sucks that they're that crafty. Makes me wonder if thinkgs could've gotten worse.” Marine adds in, her burnts bits slathered in poultice.

You decide to just not say anything. It'll be a long wait for you but hey, at least you're not fighting with the locals... Anymore.

You should phrase your argument in such a manner that all your opponents are Jews.

Please, help rescue me from the over 6,000,000 weimar republics of misfortune that have happened to me, and rid the Jew of his Jewily gotten goods."

Also, I remember someone asking if we could chain it with Quick Attack so that it can apply an immediate debuff? Is that possible?
>>
>>31638157
Word of mouth.
>>
>>31638143
Will Kurojo be staying at the Dome with us or will he just drop us off?
>>
>>31638143

any idea on how much longer it will take to get back to the dome
>>
>>31638170
So we just gotta talk to the oldest fucker around.
>>
>>31638143

What would a normal success on our last roll have been like?
>>
>>31638175
Er, drop off, obviously. We can't just bring him into the dome. He's the kind of race you find in the Indigo Reports, after all, and we don't have the kind of clout a Gym Leader or an Elite 4 member has to bring him in like Bruno did for Bruise. Not without causing major problems.
>>
>>31638175
Can't answer that.

>>31638168
Rank 10 is blizzard.
And yes, Quick attack can grant other moves priority.

Though Extremespeed witll take priority over quick attack.
>>
>>31638204
>Though Extremespeed witll take priority over quick attack.
Quick Attack becomes Extreme Speed at Rank 10 too?
>>
>>31638143
Great thread, Professor. Things went way smoother now, after the whole shitfest that was contained in last night's thread.

I'm glad things turned out this way, even if we didn't get mad XP. We're alive and not suffering critical wounds.

What do you think of what happened, anyway?
Did we miss something you hoped we would get?
Anything you were worried about us doing that we pursued?

I like getting your thoughts on matters too. I'm weird I know.

Oh! And the next thread you'll run will be...what...and...when?
>>
>>31638202
We could, at the very least he should visit with some sort of leader, and with our return we could get him a meeting with Boss.

Though the mindraping will commence shorty after our talk though, it's SOP.
>>
>>31638143
>>End Thread.
>Tired, sleepy.
>>31633756 Hey anon, I was closer.
>>
>>31638168
>Useless
What, during the Nar-Kage fight? It wasn't useless it was part of why we won.
>>
>>31638143
Been a fun, relaxed thread, Prof. Hopefully, though, we won't get too many of these kinds of detours.

>>31638234
Anon, you need some delicacy in these sorts of matters.
>>
>>31638143
Is there any way to decrease the stam costs of moves other than things like Nevermeltice?

Are PPUps items that exist?
>>
>>31638204
>Quick Attack gud
I can see higher level us better now.
>Launches Blizzards at the speed of light
>Surrender now, or prepare to freeze
>>
>>31638252
We're gonna walk up to the door and knock and say "Yo, i'm back, I'm hungry, and i need a shower. Oh, and i brought a friend"

Or just walk in and report to Boss like it's nothing.
>>
>>31638249
Reread my statement, anon. And yeah, it helped in creating slippery surfaces, but Prof barely gave that any mind. It was just "there". It lacked any prominence in the battle at all.

Kurojo has been nothing but a total bro.

we should teach him how to read and write
>>
>>31638178
Depends. You're gonna need help. The city may offer help.

>>31638222
Aye.

>>31638229
Kind of wanted you to go with Kurojo myself, but I also wanted this island to be explored a leeetle bit more.
I'm glad that Ceru's not wounded too badly either, but it would've been nice to get Marine Pecu armor.
I was worried that you guys would go too hard for Pecu. It didn't dance.

>>31638193
Or experienced hunters.

>>31638196
Some Rinnians would accompany you.
>>
>>31638284
What are you talking about? Do you even know what I was talking about?
>>
>>31638175
I'm sure they would love him at the dome.

I bet the boss would find a place for him one way or another.
>>
>>31638303
Does Aura do anything weird at rank 20?
>>
>>31638299
The Kahkori already have a system of writing. So it'd just be about teaching him the symbols and how they go together; he'd pick it up very quickly.
>>
>>31638229
>Oh! And the next thread you'll run will be...what...and...when?
Tomorrow... DLN maybe. Might need a break and run it wednesday.

Lat AoPH Friday.

>>31638323
I can't even imagine if you got it to rank 20.
>>
>>31638303
>Explore island
Indeed, I wanted this as well. Ah, but so little time to do stuff...so little.
Also, there are indigo reports all over the place. Dang.
>Pecu armor
Mmm. That would've been badass. Sadly, it made a good show of being intimidating.
>Dance
Shit man...
>>
>>31638306
I did, i just chose to speak on something only vaguely relating to what you said.
>>
>>31638143
This detour took too much of the thread. Would be nice to not get sidetrackeditis like so many animes and mangos.
>>
>>31638339
>DLN.
Oh dear i can smell the shitstorm from here.
>>
>>31638339
>Spoilers
Sweet. I eagerly await whatever you do.
And do take time to rest if you need it man. You're driving yourself hard these days.
>>
>>31638339
When is the next Overhuman?
>>
>>31638303
>Some Rinnians would accompany you.

So what's this big crit like? ALL Rinnians accompany us now? Do we get a few on mounts, too?
>>
>>31638303
>Or experienced hunters.
Well that settles it, Priority number one is talking to an experienced hunter to get down every type on Mon he's seen and description of it.

Possibly doubling or tripling the size of Kantos Index can save hundreds of lives and is a goal more than worthy of Ceru. Not to mention the dozen of so species to add to the Indigo Reports.

Dear God we're gonna put in the single largest amount of monsters at one time in Kanto history.
>>
>>31638143
Okay, concern. While this was a fun venture, I really hope you don't drag this out for too long, Prof.

>>31638382
The crit was that we didn't have to go at all. They just send one of the half-merrinx girls in their tribe to fetch our stuff instead.
>>
>>31638382
We don't have to go at all anon.
They're doing it for us.

Sadly, this means no exploring.
>>
>>31638377
Friday.

>>31638382
They're dealing with it for you.

>>31638385
>>Or experienced hunters.
Funny that you think it'll be that easy.
You'll meet the Smolodhans soon enough.
>>
>>31638405
>>31638411
Heh, just realized charm is the stat that gets people to do stuff for us.
I am enjoying this mental image.
"Goldiiiiiiie, pleeeeease? I'm REALLY tired...can't you teleport me home?"
>>
>>31638423
>Friday.
But you said late Aoph Friday. >>31638339

we can swim in that lake and fight the monster that was totally hiding in there
>>
>>31638303
Why would we have gone to Kurojo anyway instead of exploring the city anyway? You really should have considered the options more if what you wanted was for us to explore the island. Because, you know. Exploring the city. Obvious choice for exploration.

For example, you could have just had Kurojo offer us to explore the island if we went to check the tropius with him. Easy.
>>
>>31638437
For saturday, misread my lil' schedule.
>>
>>31638437
I assume he means he's going to do them back to back.
>>
>>31638454
Which one is Saturday? Aoph or Overhuman?
>>
>>31638339
>>31638454

I was curious during the last thread since I noticed what might have been a pattern
>The Jonin starts to sweat, his visible eye averting from yours

>You see something in her eyes wane and look away from yours, even if only to avoid eye contact.

>You cease your hasty exit and step further in, staring the girl down, the scrutiny of your glare making her sweat a bit

If it wasn't the opposite of what I perceived the premise to be of DLN, I'd guess this was foreshadowing for some kind of power. Was it just a bit of recurring animu mannerism getting to be a habit, or does he just have a heck of a glare?
>>
>>31638339

>DLN is back

Amazing. That said, if you need a break, please take one. You already make so many threads it's almost worrying.

Dreamland Traveler quest was excellent and you should be proud of having made it
>>
>>31638450
It was underwater Merrinx.
>>
>>31638405
>>31638411
>>31638423
Sweet.

Can't wait to see the Smolodhans. Aren't they assholes?
>>

>>31638449
>World's cutest catgirl

>>31638474
Late saturday AoPH.
Friday Overhuman.
>>
>>31638476
>Was it just a bit of recurring animu mannerism getting to be a habit
Yeah. Why would you think otherwise? Do you even remember just what it was that made Kakashi react like that?
>>
>>31638477
Dreamland was actually pretty crappy. I'd rather he just scrap it and do it over if he's gonna run it again. I mean, bad enough that he couldn't recognize the trolls. He actually went and humored them.
>>
>>31638423
>>>Or experienced hunters.
>Funny that you think it'll be that easy.
>You'll meet the Smolodhans soon enough.
assholes but experienced assholes.

Time to prove our might to them and learn about monsters!!!
>>
>>31638516
That is why our last MC wouldn't be the MC next time, I believe.
>>
>>31638479
underwater infiltration, how mission impossible are those things?
