With their own skills, and an uneasy alliance they hunt a monster of the sea!A Young Rocket and her friends engage a monster upon the deck of a ship. While everyone else scattered, she stood her ground to blind the monster, only to be swatted up by its tail as it lifted itself from the deck!Nearly finding herself lost at sea, Cerulean blasts back onto the boat with a new technique as the veteran hunting party finishes off the beast.Within the city, Cerulean finds her way to the Ranger's guild, meeting a new race of monstrous human!Within the guild, a foe stands in her way, through the slipping of her mind, she kills him before his own kin.Now before a veteran hunter, she finds new aid in seeking a way home!What does this ally have in mind?What will Ceru decide to do next?Will her ship be setting sail soon?Stay tuned to find out!Known characters>http://pastebin.com/k2xnqqvBMonster Index>http://pastebin.com/wxwgrCqbCharacter Sheet>http://pastebin.com/7CJx3gq1Twitter:>https://twitter.com/AoPHquestLore>http://pastebin.com/vy0a6Z9r
Changes:SP+ 5Ingenuity: n/aTenacity: +2Charm: +1The large beast of a humanoid sits across from you, guzzling down a honeyed liquor served by Rynnian attendants. Setting his own mug down, the strong froth still dripping down the fur of his beard, he gestures towards you, and commands the small cat to bring another round.You sit there still wide-eyed and upset from what had transpired...Fidgeting with your hands for some small comfort, you keep trying to figure out whether what you did was right or wrong, and the fact that you didn't even know you did it until after it was done. You can't help but to wonder if you'd kill again without knowing it. The Red one before you doesn't seem to mind the fact that you just murdered one of his comrades, no, he seems far more interested in your story.You're served by the cat and it mows, pointing to the others, only to be snarled at by the green one, driving it away with its tail between its legs. She seems a little on edge.The Vi-Smokhan drinks again, “You seem disturbed. Does death bother you so?”Drawing your tail in for a little hug, you find blood at the end and flick it away, shaking a bit more in your seat. “Ahm... Ahm jus' not used ta' kill'n lads. Hunt'n beasties be mor me professiuhn.” You shake your head,”But...” You look to the beast hopefully, he said that he'd help you find a way home... Home.“Unbloodied then, eh?” A rumbling chuckle comes from the old beast's maw. His sharp teeth glinting in the barlight. “Drink your stout, it'll calm your nerves.”You look down at the drink before you, carefully picking it up as told and sipping at it gingerly. It's sweet, but has a weird bitter- makes you gag a little bit, and you set it back down, “Sorry.”You apologize. “Ah didn' mean t' kill yer lad.”The red one pulls his lips back to show his distaste, a weathered grimace, “Death always comes eventually. He merely met his end before the rest of us.”
>>32292355“But, it not be a joyous thing. Op'site in fact, aye?”“Your tongue... It is odd.” The Red one's eyes shift over to Kurojo, “Need the bird translate?”Kurojo inclines his head,”If I may speak, Master Hunter.” Kurojo socializes in the common tongue, and the Red one approves.“Only for her, I need not the thoughts of your kind.” The Red one growls.“It's sad though right?” You say, Kurojo translating for you fluently. “I mean, he was one of you, and now he's just...”“Gone indeed, and it had been deserved.”“Deserved?”“If I am not mistaken, he shot you down days ago. The conflict continued in that bar, he was insulted with your friend's water,” His eye flicks to Marine, “And then it continued here where the conflict is put to rest.”“But couldn't we have just fought? I didn't know we were fighting to the death when I accepted, I just...”“You are unfamiliar with our custom. When individuals wrong each other Smolder law dictates that they settle their difference.” Anger begins to rumble in the back of the Vi-Smokhan's throat, “One dies, and all Smolders move on. One less angry smolder, one less mouth to feed.” He eyes Kurojo with his reserved fury, “It is good for us all.” You can feel Kurojo visibly shaken by the powerful man, in both his word, form, and the fact that you're surrounded by them. Kurojo opens his mouth to say something beyond translation, the lingering glare of Akabaron makes him rethink this.> "But how is it good? How can it be good when someone dies, that doesn't make any sense."> "Can my friends talk? It's really weird that they can't talk..."> "So... You're not mad at me for killing him?">
>>32292545> "So... You're not mad at me for killing him?"
>>32292545> "So... You're not mad at me for killing him?"Kurojo might throw an insult at the guy. We can let him vent later.
>>32292545>>(other)Wow, it really was blank.
>>32292545>> "Can my friends talk? It's really weird that they can't talk..."
> "So... You're not mad at me for killing him?"Ask why he's interested in the dome, what he knows of them, find out what he intends to do.>inb4 they see the dome as the perfect hunting targets a la predator
>8SPWe could buy Aura (4), Detect (4), and Aura Combat (3).
>>32292545You should update the stats on the character sheet, Prof.>>32292608>>32292710Add asking him about the myths he knows concerning our 'glass city' to my vote here.
>>32292753Thirding making conversation over what they know about the domes.It might be that they found a ruined one
>>32292545> "Can my friends talk? It's really weird that they can't talk..."And>what do your legends say about the dome?
>>32292545can we roll to learn better common? I mean we're in a huge gathering place filled with people just going on in it.
>>32292947Bit later on, but yes.
>>32292947When we finish the conversation, we can ask Kurojo why our tongue is "odd".
>>32292811Fourth. Let's move the convo along.
>>32292545> "So... You're not mad at me for killing him?"And when he says no, We should take a deep breath and put it aside for now. The fact that we are still letting it bother us seems to be someone insulting to them. We can think more on this later in private
>>32292545..so it really was a fight to the death...> "But how is it good? How can it be good when someone dies, that doesn't make any sense."Also ask what he knows about the dome.
>>32293157>..so it really was a fight to the death...What? Death being a possibility was rather clear from the onset.Also>>32293128What this guy here said is right. No need to question him on why the death was alright, merely confirm that he is. We can learn about his culture some other time.Anyway, Smolder is probably the correct race name of the Smorodhan, but I'm not sure how the "-dhan" fits. Smolderans?
>>32293238Their name is a play on the name "smilodon", which were biggass prehistoric cats with saberteeth.
>>32293280I always find it funny that the Sabertooth is called a smilodon.
>>32293280Yeah, uh, I was just trying to fit Kurojo's pronunciation of their race name with what it actually is (Smolder).
>>32293312Scientists are people, too.There's lots of science jokes.
>>32293319Honestly, I was just never happy with the race name, and Smolder(an) just sounds better.
>>32293353You said than when they were still Smolodhans. I just assumed Smorodhan was Smolderan (so that's it, huh?) with Kurojo's speech quirk added in.
>>32293391We can just call it that. Yeah.Hueh, Araraki would become Alalaki following his speech rules.
>>32293432That or he's just lucky that they have r's in their name instead of l's.
“So... You're not mad at me for killing him?” You ask with a hesitant heart, flashing another look at the blood on your tail.“Need I repeat myself?” The Smolder snorts out flame in his irritation.“No sir.” You resign, still feebly massaging the anxiety out from your hands. It still bothers you. That you just killed a person. What would mother think? And why don't they care? You frown a little, taking a deep breath to try not to think about it, “You said that you've heard stories of glass cities?”The Vi-Smokhan nods. Settling into his chair as though to reminisce. “It is said that they are from a time long past us. The stories are seldom told, but...”The Araraki seems to focus a bit more on this conversation, though she still continues to keep an eye on her surroundings, almost paralyzed in her own fear. It's not far removed from what Marine's feeling right now either.“It is foolishly thought that long ago we were all one people. Powerless and weak, yet still somehow dominating the world, ruling it uncontested. When their time came to an end as all things do, it is said that they hid within glass cities that cannot be seen by the eye.” He exhales, smoke fuming out of his nostrils, “Stories tell of riches and technologies exist within even those that have come to ruin.” The Araraki moves, as though she means to say something, yet her shyness in the face of the Smolders keeps it from coming out.Ignoring the lizard, the Vi-Smohkan leers at you “And it seems you have come from one of these places... Unless you are a liar? Come to think of it, what proof do you have?”Put on the spot suddenly, all eyes at the table and from the surrounding eavesdroppers turn to you and Marine.> “I'm afraid I don't have any proof...”> “Yeah... It was a lie... Sorry.”> Show him the index.> (Other)
>>32292545>> "So... You're not mad at me for killing him?"
>>32293632SO he know only of tall tales and useless bits of information. LOVELY.Mildly conflicted between lying to him or showing him the index. He might not even believe the index bit so...>[x] “I'm afraid I don't have any proof...”
>>32293632How much of our other voltorb's energy has recharged?We can do a little demonstration of our cloaking tech without showing him our index.
Should we use our repel as proof? Show him how we cannot be seen by the eye?
>>32293632>Show him the index.
We should ask if Yellow is okay with losing and the whole being dead thing.Since we know damn well ghosts are things that exist, and these people should as well.
>>32293632>[x] Show him the index.we need their help
>>32293632>> Show him the index.
>>32293632> Show him the index.
>>32293632>>32293698>>32293699This would be good, actually. We'd have to explain to them that our city is invisible anyway, so demonstrating how our repel tech works is perfectly fine.
>>32293632>> Show him the index.He's done nothing to earn suspicion so far
Guys showing him the index will make him want to go on a treasure hunt. > “I'm afraid I don't have any proof...”
>>32293632Index or Repel is fine.
>>32293632Do NOT show the index, Ceru and Marine's foreign powers are proof enough.
>>32293632>>32293698>>32293699>>32293747>>32293768Adding another vote here.Repel tech is safe to reveal at this juncture. Don't show the Index.
>>32293760do you doubt the strength of the dome against a bunch savages? especially the strength of Giovanni?
>>32293777No it isn't
>>32293632> Show him the index.Open up the gunports on our palms, and show him our more prominent growths. Yes, we're weak, which is why we take on the monsters' powers to fight.
>>32293632Show him Repel
>>32293785why would the Index not be safe to reveal? If anything, it is more safe to show then our Repel tech, because then they don't know how our city is hidden
Do humanoids evolve?
>>32293632>>32293799>>32293802Eighth!>>32293795Our biological circumstances would not be the best evidence.
>>32293777I suppose showing the repel is fine too, but the index and movement gear are too dangerous
>>32293632Just explain your Pokemon grafts. That you were originally a weak human, they make you to protect them.
>>32293795Prof straight up said a couple threads ago that revealing how rangers do would result in shitstorm.
>>32293808Repel is more a show of strength and utility.Being able to go invisible at any time will show him our military might
>>32293808See>>32293747They already know that we're from the dome because we described it as being "hidden behind glass", so we can already guess that they know the domes can't be seen normally from the outside.
>>32293832No he said that in DLN.Anybody wanna copypaste or screenshot it to show anons who don't follow that?
>>32293808But we need to prove that the legends are true. They dont need to know how they work, just that they do
Uh, you know that you turn repel-tech on via the index, right?>>32293851Nah, I'll just say it again.Revealing how you get your implants is not the best idea.
>>32293862Yeesh, Prof. I told you once before. You should stop spreading around information of one quest in other threads. At the very least, you should repost it in the thread that's ACTUALLY relevant.
>>32293862Well then do that.AlsoWhy would it be bad? I fail to see why they would take offense at that with how they use mons for stuff.
>>32293851He said several threads before that that them learning would result in lots of shouting and being called "monster", "skinwalker", or "egg-stealer", among other things.
>>32293862>Uh, you know that you turn repel-tech on via the index, right?Prof. What do you think> Show him the index.Means?>>32293878It's pretty obvious why it would be a bad idea.
>>32293811Seconding this question.
>>32293862>Uh, you know that you turn repel-tech on via the index, right?If I recall correctly, the Index is not limited to being a switch for our repel tech. It also contains a map, lets us take pictures and notes, and miscellaneous other functions I may have forgotten.We're not voting to show him our index because the text implies we'd let him examine it. What we're voting to do is just turn on our repel tech in front of him.
Don't let him touch the index no matter what you do.
>>32293862A demonstration of repel tech is different from revealing all the functions of the index and how it is powered.
>>32293920He can touch but not take.>>32293916Everyone knows this and it's implied
>>32293947>Everyone knows this and it's impliedEveryone knows what? What's implied?
>>32293955That the index is not just a switch for our repel.And Showing him the index does not mean letting him examine everything about it.
>>32293862For clarification, if we use the repel tech, will it be a medium-power variation that leaves us with remaining power, or is this a trap option to make us burn out all our power supplies?Because I can easily see it being written as the latter, if not specified to be something under full power.
>>32293991We have 30 min of high power.High power for 5 seconds won't do shit.And it'll be a better demonstration at high.
>>32293981How is the second implied?>>32293991At high power, voltorb life is limited to 10 minutes.We'd only need a few seconds.
>>32294023simple logicCeru being smart enough and cautious enough to not give away everything, us trusting him but not being an idiot about it.
Voting for using the Repel tech on high, just enough for them to be confused. Don't forget to move a ways before turning it off, the whole thing will be less than 30 secs
OOOOOOHHHH updated lore pastebin
>>32294057If I may point back to thread 41?Obviously, we cannot trust Prof to actually follow what we're saying unless we actually explain it properly to him.
>>32294057Thats how i thought during the kraken incident. Now i know not to presume so much from Ceru's character. Besides she's still reeling from rocket mode fallout.
>>32294108What happened in 41?
>>32294129People voted on that one.That was the players fault to move in.This is just a minor show valuable secrets vs not show valuable secrets where the character would obviously not show.
>>32293632> (Other)Show repel tech.
>>32294168Going into the hostage room with the prisoners in it when we should have waited for backup.
To clarify, are you positive that you want to show him the repeltech?
>>32294196We went in to assess the situation. That's perfectly rational. I mean, we're rangers. That's pretty much part of the job.
>>32294209No, of course we aren't prof. Player mistrust and generalized apprehension are at an all time high.
>>32294209No, because you obviously think it's a bad idea.Which it is, at least, in this area. If we're to show him our repel tech, it should be somewhere private.
>>32294209If you want to play it that way: noTechnically, we only needed him to recognize us as warriors, theres no need to drag them into this
>>32294209Since you're obviously gonna fuck us over for doing it because you never learn, I guess not.
>>32294209Could we just show him a Voltorb?
>>32294209No, do not show him the repeltech.
>>32294209Serious stop doing second clarificatins like that.The votes were obviously for show him the repel tech.Bad or good you should do it. Asking again implies things. At the very least be very clear that you aren't trying to imply things.
>>32294209Technically, we're showing every damn Smolder in the area the repel tech.Could we at least ask to go somewhere private to show him the proof?
>>32294209>>32294245>>32294267>>32294279These, pretty much. If we show him, it's got to be somewhere in private.
>>32294279He'll fuck us over for -not- doing it.>>32294292If we do, at least do something like this.
>>32294209Seriously prof?Yes despite implying things like that.
>>32294292Also, not a vote to say to show him repel tech. Just a vote to show him proof.
>>32294292This. This so hard. Show him something like the voltorb in PRIVATE.
>>32294209Yes, but seriously stop this shit. Take the vote when there's consensus.
>>32294209Okay. Let's go on the level here, Prof.Showing him the voltorb or just the APPEARANCE of our index. It's retarded to think that, that would be enough to convince him.However, if that was your original plan, to have him be easily convinced by that, then state so. Then we'll go with that.
>>32294209Ygg why the fuck do you gotta throw signals out like that? Thats what caused the last shitstorm.YES.
>>32294209Do it, but do it somewhere private.
>>32294209I just want to show him the index
>>32294209Yes, dear god let's not start this again.
>>32294347>>32294355>>32294368Can we at least take this opportunity to add the "in private" clause?We lose nothing from it, and it means less people than necessary know for certain our capabilities.
>>32294291>>32294347>Serious stop doing second clarificatins like that.Why? I was asked before to do such when there was an option that could lead to something bad. I'm.. I'm just going to keep my mouth shut then if you want to complain about that too.
>>32294209Do it.Now people are doubting themselves.
>>32294209>>32294355Additionally, if you can confirm that, then we'll assume from now on that all such related matters are this simplistic. Because you know, Prof, we need you to actually tell us if we need to think like an actual person or just assume a low level logic here. That seeing something "NEW" and "FOREIGN" (despite us also being new and foreign in appearance) would be enough to convince anyone that we're from some secret mythical place.Because that's like telling someone that you're an alien in real life just because you have something weird and uncommon.>>32294404The problem is that it took you HALF AN HOUR to do this. HALF AN HOUR.
>>32294404Well if it is SOOOOO obviously a bad idea then yeah do it.
>>32294416No, people were pretty clearly swinging towards, "do it, but not where -everyone- can see", which is a reasonable edit.
>>32294404Then say something like."X may have bad consequences because Y"Not"are you suuuuure?"Or just take the vote because that's what was vote on
>>3229440430 minutes, Ygg. You waited until 30 minutes to actually say anything. You shouldn't have even waited 15 or 10 minutes before you asked something like that.
>Show the Smohkan evidence in private.> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.> Or let him take a brief look at the index.>>32294427>The problem is that it took you HALF AN HOUR to do thisYeah, I typed up the next post, and then looked at it and rolled my eyes because it was going to be pretty bad and I'd have to trash some plot threads.
>>32294437Yes it is.
>>32294451How are we supposed to know how X has Y consequences in a entirely alien culture to our own? That's meta as fuck.
>>32294461>> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.kinda stupid to pull him away for the index
>>32294461See>>32294427Are we to assume that showing him some flashing lights with, what is to him, unintelligible symbols on it actually convincing? Because compared to what already exists naturally in this world, we actually need you to say whether or not it is.If so> Or let him take a brief look at the index.
>>32294461>> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.>>32294482Going invisible in the middle of a bar will have consequences
>>32294461>[X] Or let him take a brief look at the index.
>>32294404Maybe you could include Ceru's input on these kinds of situations. State things from rocket protocol that we're SUPPOSED to know, and use that Ing to get a feel for how people react yo certain decisions
>>32294489He shouldn't have to say that, that's for us to figure out.that being said i don't think it will so>>32294461> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.
>>32294461> Or let him take a brief look at the index.
>>32294461It seems as if you're pushing hard for us to just show him our index.>>32294489Is what he says correct? Then> Or let him take a brief look at the index.
>>32294461>> Or let him take a brief look at the index.Fine. Just take his picture then show him that.If that will prove it to him.
>>32294461>> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.
Okay.You know what assumption I'm going to go on to make this make sense?The only metal/steel type pokemon that really happen are ancient shit in domes like our voltorbs, or like beldum cybernetic arms.
>>32294533>He shouldn't have to say that, that's for us to figure out.The problem is that he obviously thinks that's the best solution. He's shown himself to be entirely inflexible in these kinds of things, where the only real solutions are the ones he presents or options which combine the options he's given. He rejects 'custom' options by pointing out what he perceives as flaws in them when the same can be done for options he gives.
>>32294461> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.Also, i liked that you warned us. Thank you ygg.
>>32294461> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.
>>32294461> Or let him take a brief look at the index.We can let him have a little look, and if he's still unconvinced, then we can try> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.These options are not mutually exclusive, and I'm presuming the negative consequences would be from revealing it all in the bar Or he could just flip out on seeing any of it, try and kill us, and ruin the chance at getting back
>>32294561The Nargacuga is steel type.>>32294461> Or let him take a brief look at the index.>>32294567It's because everyone was really preoccupied with not showing him the index that they actually forgot about our location.
>>32294566Then he should point things out and just allow things to happen
>>32294461>>32294596This works. Index first and, if it's not convincing enough, repel tech in private.
FUCK ALL YOU GUYS COMPLAINING. WE WERE ABOUT TO MAKE AN OBVIOUS MISTAKE, SHOWING HIM IN THE OPEN. YGG WAS A GOOD GM AND GAVE US A COMMON SENSE WARNING. AND ALL YOU WHINERS DO IS BEING DESTRUCTIVE.
>>32294566>Going invisible in the middle of a bar.>In front of what's effectively a warlord.>Completely surrounded by experienced warriors.>>32294566The problem is that if I punish you guys you'll yell just as much.I already had the post written, want me to just post it so you can yell some more?
>>32294604The problem is that the same remains true for his own options. Those that are reasonable can easily have some problem in them because he decides it. Basically, we're left with just trying to guess what HE wants to happen rather than actually trying to properly examine the situation regardless of any logic.
>>32294676just do it, they'll be mad either way
>>32294676Stop, you're about to make a mistake.Just write the thing that won for in private.
>>32294461> Repeltech on high power for a few seconds.Just like how we got their respect (in a sort of way) by defeating Yellow in front of them, we'll do the same by showing the repeltech to everyone.
>>32294676That's really the problem here. Obviously, it goes without saying that no one would want to show everyone at the bar the repeltech. The problem is that the bar was out of mind since the current issue was shrunk to "what proof can be shown" to this guy.
>>322946761) theyd freakout and treat us as dangerous, but that is not an objectively "wrong" choice. What ceru says and does after that is crucial(except thats the part where you take away control)2) what happened to showing it in private?
>>32294723That is clearly not the case.On the other hand, Prof, we never said do it without warning. And rds fact that you think that's what we wanted is kind of silly.
Best solution would have just been to post saying."And would you like to do this in private or where you are?"
>>32294676>>Going invisible in the middle of a bar.>>In front of what's effectively a warlord.>>Completely surrounded by experienced warriors.I'm not even talking about that. I'm talking about the options you gave.And it goes without saying that people would have wanted to do it in private. It's just that the bar did not feature at all in the situation.Instead of asking us whether or not we wanted to do it, a reminder that we're in a bar would have sufficed. Details that were irrelevant to the immediate problem should be brought up when the chosen action makes them relevant.
QM/player disconnect strikes again.maybe a large breasted female will calm some nerves
>>32294806>>32294849Agreed, but let's just move on.
>>32294676Ill be honest here prof. After the last thread, no one here trusts ANYONE, everyone is still mad, any choice can be toxic right now.
>>32294877No, only like half the people are. The rest of us are fine.
>>32294867A Bariothgirl would be more appropriate.Ceru hugs her tail when she's nervous oh gosh
>>32294905Well even if its only half of the people here, thats still more than enough to cause a derailment of the thread.
>>32294877moar like every choice>What will Ceru put on her hot dog?>Ketchup>Mustard>Sweet Relish>Dill Relish>Onions
>>32294967>biggest shitstorm ever
>>32294967Fuck the hotdog, she wants a burger.
>>32294967> Other: A little bit of everythingWhich is surprisingly accurate
>>32294967>>Ketchup>>Mustard>>Sweet RelishAll American Masterrace.
>>32295009nah, a taco. A FISH taco.
So, any ideas on Profs surprise?
>>32295038ends in sex then we all go out for hot dogs
>>32295038The one from his weeklong hiatus? He said that was some fiction he wanted to write.
Ever find it ironic that we have a predator implanted and the prey it eats?
>>32295038Still working on it.
>>32295055When did he say that?
>>32295059AUTO -CANNIBALISM WILL CHECKS HOOOO!
>>32295085-.--__________________________________-Thought you said it was coming today( ;_;)
I don't even know if we're showing him or not at this point.I don't really have the will to argue one way or the other right now, either.
>>32294676Looking at it, he's not really griping about the current decision, but what he thinks of your policies in general concerning choices. It's irrelevant to our current situation.Really, the fact that we were in a public area slipped everyone's mind, but the moment you asked the question, someone immediately stated that we should do it in public. That's a whole different problem from what he was talking about. The issue is in just making these details relevant. I remember telling you this once in the Q&A thread, I think.The fact that we were in a public place did not really connect to any of the choices you offered, so it didn't feature as prominently as it should have had showing our repel gear off been one of the original options. In cases like this, where a submitted option makes other variables in the environment relevant, you should make sure to point them out.
>>32295115Very close, working on it between posts.
>>32294676The real mistake was associating with the smolders in the first place. I don't want them even remotely aware of the dome or it's location, fuck.
>>32295123That's good.Just want you to know that despite all the shit flinging you are appreciated and Thank You for all of this.
>>32295087In one of the threads. He said he was thinking of writing of the adventure of a different group of rangers; the story was stated to be a stand-alone, if I remember right, so it wouldn't be relevant in regards to this story.
>>32295127Why not? The Rockets alone could stomp the Smolder tribe.
>>32295145That'd be really fun to read.
>>32295159Our walls are made of invisibility and GLASS.Even if the smolders all die, it would be a small effort for even primitives like this to break the dome in the process. Or at least breach it.
>>32295159Still, I don't want to lead an army of ultraviolent savages to our home.
>>32295182Breaching Uber thick glass
>>32295121I think it would be fair for Ygg to point out something like "are you sure you want to do that in the bar?" -if- it is something Ceru would/could notice with the stats she has.
>>32295159Its not the Smolders we are worried about it is literally EVERYONE ELSE we have no idea about and would prefer not to have find out about the Domes that we care about not finding out about the Domes. The leadership has kept up the policy of killing everything that know about us for as long as the Domes have existed.Inspite of what the crazy brainwashing guy said, the Domes are a good thing.
>>32295182>implying they would even get close>implying they would get past Sabrina and Rape Squad of Ultimate nonhuman hatred>implying Lorelie wouldn't swing by and take them out in one swoop.
>>32295121I hadn't mentioned the location because the original choices wouldn't have been a show. Showing the index would've been as easy as showing someone a book.Then the original input of "Show him repeltech" came up and suddenly there was a tunnel vision. You're in a public place, you're being watched.
>>32295207We aren't going to show them the exact location.We're going to report back and allow Giovanni commence negotiations and trade agreements.
>>32295218Yeah that hadn't occured to anyone. Just show them the index. Afterall he probably cant read it.We are just going to have to be REALLY careful with it at all times if we do.
You open up the plate on your arm, the Smolder's interest makes you wonder why the Kahkori back in Kakarkiko didn't question your equipment as much, even going so far as to accommodate this device. Popping open the index, you select the Repel-tech and set it to high as you stand up, all eyes on you. The supervision makes you uncomfortable, especially from this crowd.“Um... I can prove I'm from the city of glass. Is there somewhere private that I could show you?”Kurojo relays your message, before looking at you quizzically, realizing that you intend to show him your repeltech. You never did really explain it to him.The bar buzzes a bit with chatter about you and the Vi-Smohkan. You've even attracted attention from the other race's sections, getting some looks from afar by Kahkori and Araraki. The Vi-Smohkan sees this and notes your concern. “The Araraki and Kahkori stay here, your outsider friend may come.” He gets up, and beckons forth the green one,”Nala, you too.” and leads you away to the corner of the bar, descending down a staircase lit by lanterns. Marine's right behind you, and “Nala” behind her.You find the way lit by flame to be reminiscent of the Grave Spire. All those little blue flames. It's the only other place you knew of lit by firelight.The way down is short, and the two of you walk down a hall with the skulls of great beasts mounted above and decorating the room. It's eerie seeing them put on display such as this. Even the museums back at the dome would at least stuff the monsters with something, keeping their skin on.The Vi-Smokhan stops at a door mounted by the skull of a dragon,”My private chamber. Master Hunters such as I have the benefit.”“Oi, is' a mighty fine quarter, aye?”“Please don't talk unless you have to...” Nala cringes, almost pleading you not to.
>>32295218That was the point where you should have been."You're in public, would you like to change locations?"
You enter the chamber and find it decorated with many advanced and intricate weapons hung upon the walls. Nala shuts the door behind the two of you, and the Smolders watch you expectantly.You press the button to activate the repeltech, In the next moment, you feel frazzled, unable to feel anything with your aura due to the disturbance. However you see the clear suprise and awe upon their faces. After a few seconds, you turn it back off, seeing that you have the Vi-Smokhan's full attention now.“That... How did you do that?” The Vi-Smokhan looms over you, eying you over with a keen interest, almost astonishment before he reigns himself in, he seems to be thinking intently. There's a hungry, inspired look within his eye.“Um...”Nala stands at the door...> Explain as best you can...> Brush it off as just something you can do.> “I can't tell you.”> (other)
>>32295121Additionally, you should have acted more quickly at the perceived problem towards showing our index. That's often the problem when it comes to these choices that people accuse you of (and what the other anon was getting ornery about). They're broadly worded and vaguely interpreted. It doesn't help that you react hostilely at times, understandably so given the angry people you have to talk with, however not completely justified.>>32295218>I hadn't mentioned the location because the original choices wouldn't have been a show. Showing the index would've been as easy as showing someone a book.>You're in a public place, you're being watched.Which is the entire issue I'm discussing with you. The original choices were not concerned with the public. The given choice was. But the descriptions you gave had put the bar out of mind and irrelevant.I've already described the issues of showing the index, but to expound; there are people who thought that it would mean showing off the index' functions. This may be because, judging from the votes, people would find it hard to believe that just the index' physical appearance would be convincing enough. Given the kind of creatures which we can expect to see in this world, a glowing screen that changes colors and has shapes (words) would not be anything truly unusual for what one could expect to encounter.>>32295182It's not glass, or at least, it hasn't been stated to be glass. It was merely described as glass by Ni'Rena.
>>32295318>> “I can't tell you.”Set boundaries
>>32295318> “I can't tell you.”
>>32295318>OtherWe don't know how it works, just that it works.
>>32295318>> “I can't tell you.”It's imperative to not let him walk all over us
>>32295318> “I can't tell you.”Tell him our society has its own traditions that we'd like him to respect.
>>32295318>> “I can't tell you.”Strong and hold our position.
>>32295318>> “I can't tell you.”> (other)"Both literally and figuratively. I don't make the things, I just operate them."
>>32295318> (other)“Stories tell of riches and technologies exist... I'm not an engineer so I can't really say but someone at the Dome might be willing to you....."and guys, you just tipped our hand. never tip your hand.
>>32295318Prof, did we sense that the Araraki with us wanted to say something earlier here?>>32293632Could we ask what she wanted to say when we return?
>>32295318> (other)"We're given these when we go out on a mission. We turn them in when we get back. We're trained to be very sparing with it, since it runs out quickly."
>>32295318"I'm a ranger, not a scientist, I have no idea how it works. All I know is that it doesn't actually make me invisible, it just makes things... not notice me."
>>32295456Yes, and if she's still there.
>>32295318> Brush it off as just something you can do.>>32295427using this as the excuse.Just telling him to not ask questions isn't the best idea, I would think.>>32295462and a little of this. We're warriors, not crafters.
>>32295318>> “I can't tell you.”Don;t let him know that we don't know. Just say that we can't. Gotta appear strong.
>>32295497We want to appear strong, but not to the point of being insulting.
>>32295543Saying that there are things we can;t say is not insulting him.It just show him our loyalty to our home.
So how about those 5 SP?
>>32295573As long as it's phrased with some justification, and not just a flat stonewalling, the I've got no objection.
>>32295598Yeah. We'll want to get Quick Attack 3 (2 skill points) and Aura Combat 3 (2 skill points). I suggest using the remaining 4 points to upgrade Water Gun, though, so that we can get it to Rank 5 and to make our Icicle Gun stronger.
>>32295624But a stonewall is what we should do here.Show him that there are things we cannot reveal and show him our loyalty to our home. Cement our position as a foreign representative.
mein gottthe fucking cunts are eyeing us to be some kind of ancient historic ruins that have survived undisturbed and cut off from the outside world for millenia somehowthey're seeing us as fucking loot dispensers, we better up our ante if we want these barbaric tech-illiterate (barely) cunts to back down. can't wait for the ELITE rockets to roll over their shit and fuck them up good in the assmark my words, when their intentions are revealed you'll know i preached truth
>>32295656>>32295598I say Water gun, Aura combat and Psybeam.
>>32295318> “I can't tell you.”The only reason we've been this open this far with them is because they've allowed us to speak with them and have, thus far, treated us fairly as strangers. However, our people's culture prevent us from going any further than this and we'd ask them to respect that.
>>32295685It'd be good to get Quick Attack up, though, to chain it with other moves. The consistent problem with our Icy Wind is that its debuff never comes quickly enough. It'd be good to get priority on it.
>>32295682That's just false.He is "hungry" but it is up to us to show him how much of a military superpower we are. Intimidate him a bit.Reference how we are considered inexperienced or adolescent.
>>32295656Water Gun is good. I kinda wanted to upgrade Ice Shard so that the icicle gun would be even better.
tell him if his guild establishes peaceful contact, they'll be the first outside organization with anything resembling an economy to contact the dome. A rich opportunity for trade and barter if there ever was one and his guild would be the first in line.also tell it runs on batteries and we're running out so he doesn't go "me want magic hidey machine"
An ancient ritual had been performed to implant and activate a device with this ability in us, we have no idea how to perform this ritual but people in our homeland do. Now he has no reason to try and take anything from us, force us to tell/teach him something, and more reasons to take us home.100% lurk, and I must say you're all shitters.
>>32295714Quick attack wouldn't affect Icy Wind.Quick attack would only affect physical moves.
>>32295724Second for later.>>32295729That's just dumb
>>32295682Well of course they're interested in treasure. The issue here is on what lengths they're willing to go for it. As I see it right now, ol' Reddy here is the Long John Silver to our Jim Hawkins. Treasure Island or Treasure Planet, I'm not sure. It depends on how likable and attached we become to him over the journey, though he's been described as reminding us of Giovanni at least once. Which is fine with me. I liked Treasure Planet better anyway.
>>32295729Hell no.No only does that make us look weak and stupid. But also defaces our culture and society in their minds.And just straight up lies which would come back to bite us in the ass later.
>>32295755except there isn't an army waiting on treasure planet.
>>32295717Ice Shard would be more cost-effective, but Water Gun's rank is what decides the lethality of our shots whereas Ice Shard correlates to the quality of our projectiles. Getting Ice Shard stronger would make it better able to penetrate harder hides, but it's imperative that we first get it at a level where the force behind the shot is at that level first.
>>32295735>Quick attack wouldn't affect Icy Wind.Actually, I asked Prof about this before. Around the time of our fight against the Qurapeco. He confirmed that Quick Attack could be chained with Icy Wind to make its effect come more quickly, so no worries there.
>>32295795So both.Aura combat + Water Gun + Ice Shards.can we afford it?
>>32295819It would cost 8, so yes.
>>32295814I need confirmation on that, because that makes no sense.He did say it works for physical moves though.
>>32295819Getting Ice Shards now would not be immediately effective, in terms of the rank bonus it would give us. Quick Attack, with its chaining possibilities, would be more beneficial for us in the immediate future.>>32295840It would cost 9 points, actually. Ice Shard is at rank 3, Aura Combat at rank 2, and Water Gun at rank 4.
>>32295840Can we Buy this now Prof?
why does every decision have to have gigantic debate?
>>32295865Ice Shards is at rank 2 and gets a +1 buff from our Crytten implants.It's effectively rank 3, but it's rank 2 when it comes to buying upgrades.
I approve of getting any of these things:Quick attackWater gunIce shardsIcy windAuraLockonGetting most or all of these to a high level basically makes us into equilibrium.
>>32295865Depends on if we can chain with moves like Icy wind.I could see it working for Icicle gun and slashes and shit, but not for freezing attacks that do not require muscles, which is what quick attack does.
>>32295844Herehttp://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/31630140/#31638168http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/31630140/#31638204The two relevant posts.
>>32295865Nope>Ice Shards (2+1): An attack performed by flash freezing water into ice and then deftly throwing it at the enemy. 3 Stam(Requires thrown weapon training for long range.)It's rank 2
>>32295890This isn't a debate, it's a discussion.
>>32295716>>32295755currently we're the hottest girls on the block with the shiniest toysthe fucking cunts will want to pillage and loot everything from us, steal and reverse engineer all our shit, all the while thinking we're some kind of indians with a backwater view of morals and culture. After all, the only reason we've survived so long was our tech, right?when we shove their fucking dicks up their asses, and dominate their society without giving up too much knowledge, they'll regret ever wanting to loot any dome. get culturally enriched, motherfuckers.
>>32295914He said tat it can grant other moves priority.He never said that it would make icy wind (a move that does the majority of it's affects/damage over time) affect enemies quicker. He just said that we would get the move off quicker.
>>32295890Because ERRAWUN mad as all hell. Literally, i don't care there are people that say they aren't mad about last thread right now. Deep down no one trusts anyone, especially the QM, right now. So every vote is a huge debate.
>>32295890I was going to say something snarky about how fitting the statement in your email field was, but then I just decided that being meta about pointing out how ironically appropriate it is would be better.
>>32295937That's why we have to be strong and intimidate them.
forgot my image. play nice ceru, play nice and smile for them, because the next day it'll be an ice fang in their indian barbarian hick necks
>>32295958I assume you didn't even bother to actually understand what was being discussed and just had to force your own 2 cents here, huh? How incredibly ironic.
>>32295914Priority mean the moves gets off quicker.It does not mean that the moves affects happen faster.
>>32295987I like these guys.And they haven't done anything to us.
>>32296001Oh, and the shitstirring trolls, can't forget about those.
>>32295937>>32295987We can tell them to drop us off somewhere close to the Dome, go invisible with Marine, then make a mad dash homewards so they don't follow us. We'll lose any other party members, though, but we can also try to convince him that the Dome won't be happy about outsiders (which is true, anyways).We can also try to keep all other Smolders from finding the location to the Dome, then invite the ones that followed us inside. Then we tell the Rockets to detain, dissect, and kill them, then destroy their boat or whatever they rode to the mainland on.
>>32296132We tell them to wait at a location and tell them that we'll be back with a representative.Then we go get Boss and let him handle it.
>>32296196Pretty much this.
>>32296196We can't just hand it over completely. We'd need to act as an intermediate of sorts.
>>32296237Well Boss will bring us but we will be under his control.
>>32296196Isn't there a radio as part of our gear, or am I misremembering things? Cause if so that makes it pretty trivial to contact the dome without revealing it necessarily.
>>32296237Obviously we'll be there as a translator and person of interest.It's more of letting someone who as actual power make the decisions.
>>32296132>>32296196>LETTING SMOLODHANS ANYWHERE IN A >500 KM RADIUS OF THE DOMEIt's like you guys want them to scout us out. They can and will search the area relentlessly til they find it, they just confirmed the existence of "an ancient legend", they're not gonna give up so easily on a chance to acquire all the cool shit and advanced tech we haveI agree with fucking their shit up, but remember- we better be the first ones to visit their civilization with our Top Dogs before they do ours. Make them realize how pathetic and primitive their civilization is, and how little of a chance they stand against us.
>>32296284Very short range.
>>32296269>>32296291He'd require our and Marine's assessment of the situation, since we're the ones who would be expected to know the most about the members of the species we've interacted with. Ceru's seen as Giovanni as being objective and trustworthy, so our words on the matter (at least in concern to the people we choose to travel with) would have more weight than you'd think.>>32296284It has a short range. When we went to the Hypno Village, we couldn't contact the Dome, only Devon.
“I... I can' quite say cap'n. Not in me realm 'o expertise. Don' know 'ow t' make it, or how it does, but I make it hap'n.” You say, under his stare, as it goes through a face of nearing a growl, before calming down, huffing out flame.He exchanges word with Nala in Smoldertongs, he speaks too quickly to let you make it out with aura, but shes out of the door in the next moment, you feel her just outside, keeping watch.Marine gets closer to you, looking at you with a little worry and whispering,”What's going on Ceru?”You abstain from saying anything as your heart pitter patters out in fear of what might be the worst.The Vi-Smohkan fumes for a moment longer before calming, taking a few pieces before squatting down upon a bed of furs. He pats for you to take a seat and you comply, pulling Marine after you to as refrain from offending the beastly person.You take your own seat upon wooden floor, not offered a better seat.“I believe you. Truly now, I believe you.” His orange-yellow eyes flicker between the two of you. You whisper a translation to Marine.“So as I had said, I am willing to help you find your way home, however the aid that I can provide is meager due to the situation my people find themselves in,” There's a rolling growl within his throat,”I know not what the Kahkori have told you about us, though there is reason for what we do, and how we live.” A puff of flame streams from his nostrils as he exhales slowly to calm his infernal nerves.
>>32296305And?They couldn't do shit even if they found it.Just let Sabrina and her rape squad loose.
“We have warred with them in the past, as our people have warred with each other for generations. We are from three clustered islands, Smelda, Cruorcib, Melfurna, all of which have been reduced to ash and stone due to our own effective ignorance and boredom. Never did we realize how valuable a tree would be until it was gone, or how delicious flesh was until all that we had left were bones. Few creatures besides us live now upon our homelands.Many generations ago, when the first Kahkori ship landed upon our desolate isles, we stole their ships and waged war against them, covetting tales of their lands. And yet... They had more ships, fuller bellies, and matched us despite our weapons, mere trinkets when they cannot reach their targets.” He gestures to a large cannon resting upon the wall, not unlike Yellow's that had shot you down. This one however is larger still, with polished forged metals predominating its construction.You can only imagine what that would do, and stare in awe.“Wha'... Wha' happened then? Ye' los' but you friends wit' 'em now?”The Vi-Smohkan snarls, “Friendship is a strong word. They offered us peace due to seeing us as equals, worthy warriors. Had our stomachs not been so empty such honor would surely have pleased us... No. They offered peace, and then offered us a conquest. They turned us onto the Araraki after our war effort had been in vein.Araraki held this great land, fending off the Kahkori for a great time. When we were offered a new enemy and food, we were happy to oblige. Mercenaries... Hunters now is the is the word we've come to know ourselves as.” There's a certain amount of peace from the Vi-Smohkan now, as though he's considered this fate many times over.“But the Araraki weren't wiped out? They're still here, right?” Marine interjects, and you relay the words... in your own way.
“Indeed. Like it was with us, the Kahkori were content to drive them back, away into the desert in which they now live. Those birds, tyrants are what they are.” His rage begins to bloom again, a clenched fist with retracted claws.“The Smolders are at peace now because of them, but what food those back on the islands eat is what we hunt and return to them. Smolders still starve, and our people barely eek out a living under the tyranny of Kahkori. Instead, we still suffer their hate for the islands of theirs we've burned and are feared by the Araraki for our crimes in a war that was not ours.”He snaps back out of memory,”As for why I've told you this, it is to explain: Kahkori are the ship-makers. They have the wood to float, not Smolders. However it is we that may have the technology to cross the ocean outside the flow of the currents.”“An' why wouldn' Kahkori have it?”“Because,” The Vi-Smohkan smirks, “They do not dabble in technology as we do. They believe it to interfere with the land, and some nonsense of aura or spirit. We are warriors... And inventors.”> How do you feel about the Smolderan's history?
>>32296391smile and nod. compare notes with Kurojo and our Araraki friendssmush the 3 stories together, wipe away the blood, and we'll most likely get a better idea of the objective truth
>>32296438meant to say>compare notes with Kurojo and our Araraki friend later
>>32296359>HuntersNow that Ceru has a better grasp of their language, does she know that it means Hunter rather than Ranger?>>32296391Sad for them, I suppose. Sympathetic. We can't say for sure that our own people wouldn't have done the same thing, had we been in the Kahkoris position. But they remind us so much of Devon, so we know there's a reason behind their rage and aggression. They've been changed by their world. We can be happy, at the very least, that they've managed to find a sort of equilibrium.
>>32296391So the Smolders took upon a crash industrialization program and fucked their islands over. Desperation caused them to attack the first things they could find, the birds. The birds bullshit fightan magic proved too powerful for them. Instead of wiping out the Smolders the birds hired them on as mercs for their flowering "empire", sicking them on the desert folk Araraki. After taking the good parts of the desert from the Ararki the Birds now reign over the near area as a hegemon.I have about the jist of it?
>>32296391My first reaction was that it makes them seem more 'human' if that makes any sense.Dunno if Ceru would feel the same, but it is what it is I suppose.
>>32296483Pretty much this.
>>32296491We haven't gotten the other sides.This is from the Smolders perspective.
>>32296391>>32296483Some admiration and fear would be appropriate. While we can sympathize and pity them for the natural 'evil' in them, we can also fear it and respect the fact that they're able to put aside their bestial nature to let reason guide them. We can even admire their ingenuity at creating weapons and technology akin to our Dome's weapons. They seem to be tribal people, but they still seem to possess the kind of intelligence and knowledge the Dome people have.
>>32296391Ask about the Lynnians and Melynx. Like how do they fit into this?
>>32296491>After taking the good parts of the desert from the ArarkiInteresting that you say that.>>32296391>the Kahkori were content to drive them back, away into the desert in which they now live>Implications.
>>32296525Ehh kind of.bits of these but in very small amounts.
>>32296391Question.Why do you guys not... fish?You're on islands, you can just jump in and eat yourself some dangerous water life.
>>32296539You writin?cause that's about all there is to it.
>>32296391>>32296483>>32296500>>32296525Adding my votes here.>>32296520I don't think we're taking SIDES in this argument, we're merely deciding how we feel about their history.>>32296539>Interesting that you say that.Implying there are any good parts?That or the Araraki were MUCH more aggressive in the past and that their current state is only because they've been whipped into servility by the Kahkori and Smolders.
>>32296559>Fire-types with low BSTs>OCEANHaha NO!
>>32296559That hate water.>>32296568Yeah, but to get a clear picture you muct get what happened from all perspectives. Right now all we have is what one side said, which means what we know is going to put them as justified and the other side as bad. At least fro the most part.
>>32296571>>32296564Yeah, but ceru hardly knows this.She's made of cats that LOVE water.I would love to see the question asked.
>>32296559The Kahkori fish. We know this when we first met Kurojo and his uncle; a fishing rode was nearby.The Smolders, though. You should remember that they're fire types. Swimming may be anathema to them.
>>32296602She knows that they HATE water.
>>32296603>>32296600>swimming is anathemaYou are just making me want to see the question asked more, to see the reaction.
>>32296539So, at this point, would the Kahkori and Smolders remind Ceru of Bruise and Devon respectively? Who would the Araraki remind Ceru of? Goldie?
>>32296602Ceru is pretty darn HERETICAL.She's a FISH CATOr CAT FISH, whatever.
>>32296646I see no hersey
>>32296644No not really. I don't think the Smolders are actually Dark type, just psuedo dark.And th Ariraki would be lilac.
>>32296391I'd imagine Ceru would be intrigued, sympathetic, and surprised at the Smolders' inventive side. But she'd be wary, since she thinks that the Kahkori are good people, unlike what Smokhan says. Not that she'd mention that in front of him.Also maybe a bit of a culture shock at the whole thing.
>>32296684They aren't.http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/32243547/#32253989Last spoiler of that post.
>>32296684>And th Ariraki would be lilac.They're MUCH to shy to be Lilac. MUCH to shy.
Can we take the opportunity to ask these guys about the other races we know of, the Machop, Hypno, and Dagoon?
>>32296720They're the reason this place isn't poluted by ghosts
>>32296727That might be a good idea, just to help us out, to ask this at some point.
>>32296717>Not evil typesBy which I guess that means "they will crumble before the might of the Espers."
>>32296727>Dagoon>tfw the name you coined stuck
>>32296727Those are on the mainland, which they probably have never been to.Except Dagoons, but fuck 'em.
>>32296745It's a good name, though we need a different one for the leader class, who seems to be Water/Psychic instead of Water/Fighting.
>>32296755Actually, Machop and Abra live on every part of Poke-Japan.They're hardy.Not sure if we know what an Abra looks like though.
>>32296804>Implying we are anywhere NEAR poke-Japan.>Implying we arent in poke-Indonesia or some equally distant place.
>>32296744Then we never have to worry about them invading ever.
>>32296841We're in the Sevvi islands, not to far.
>>32296863Uhhh how do you know that?
>>32296875It was confirmed by prof several times.
>>32296775how about Asenath or Ephraim ?named after the brain jacking deep one from Lovecraft's Thing on the Doorstep.
So, do they not do fishing nets from the boats they already have for reasons of getting their shit wrecked every time they try to pull fish up?
>>32296890Where at? I never saw this.
You squirm in place, resolving how you feel about the story. The Kahkori were so nice... Tyrants? You can't really see that. But this smolder... By the state of his aura, you can tell that his story is honest. Marine seems to feel that too.“Your people starve?” Marine asks,”What about fishing? I saw Kahkori in Kakarkiko doing it...” You relay her words, to see the Vi-Smohkan's lips twitch.“Water is an insult to our people, as much as it may be a death sentence if we find ourselves in deep water. It is for that reason that we stayed below deck upon that ship.”“Bu' ye' went an' fought tha' big ol' mons'er...”“Our way of life. Fear is no excuse to not fight.”You bow your head. Fear is no excuse to not fight, huh. “So... What'll y' do t' aid us if'n ya don't have th' boats?”“You will need to become a hunter with that Kahkori of yours and purchase rights to a ship, order the wood and have a shipwright ready for construction.” He scratches at the fur of his cheek, “In the meantime I will return to my islands to pick up on Smolder rumors I've heard of inventors interested in true sea travel.”“An' why can't y' jus' buy th' ship yerself?”“The Kahkori make ships for Kahkori, not Smolders.” The Vi-Smokhan grins, “They fear that we'd try for another war... They fear what our idle hands have made since the last.”> Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...> Gracefully decline, you'll try to find another way home.> (Other)
>>32296990I'm not gonna go archive digging becuse you didn't read between posts.
>>32297006>> Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...
>>32297006> Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...This might actually be fun!
>>32297018Just tell me what thread it was in if you please ill look.
>>32297006>> (Other)We'll start saving up to buy a boat, then. If something more expedient comes up, we'll use that.
>>32297006> Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...
>>32297006> Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...We'll have to pay off our debts to the captain before we can set sail on our own boat, though, right? I guess this will give us time to get to know the Araraki we picked up.
do we FINALLY get a damn rocket flag?
>>32297006>[x] Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...beats swimming
>>32297079PIRATE ROCKET FLAG!!This can only end well.
>>32297079You could get it for your ship...That sounds amazing.
>>32297006>>[X] Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...
>>32297006>> Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...Don't see why not.
>>32297006> Agree to this proposal, it's your best bet anyway...IF this is the end of our discussion, also ask him why he's interested in helping us.>>32297095Yes. Do it, Prof.
>>32295260>“Oi, is' a mighty fine quarter, aye?”>“Please don't talk unless you have to...” Nala cringes, almost pleading you not to.I luv pirate Ceru
>>32297006Agree but let him know about >>32297078But we should let him know right now that our people are pretty isolationist and are unlikely to intercede in foreign affairs.Like even Marine and ourselves only have the value of a soldier, which as he knows, isn't much.
>>32297095I've been screaming that we need to A. get a thing to live in and B. put a rocket flag on it since we STARTED this whole arc.DO IT.
>>32297095the Boss for ship figurehead
>>32297129The Dome will be more than willing to trade.Always looking for new mons
>>32297159You are ignoring rocket tradition.Which is make it look like a meowth I guess.
>>32297129>Like even Marine and ourselves only have the value of a soldier, which as he knows, isn't much.Well, that's not ENTIRELY true. We're soldiers in our society, but we're also part of the most prestigious group there. Along with Devon (he was top student before Ceru), Bruise (from outside the dome; a social experiment), Goldie (another experiment, mixed with a very powerful psychic race, personally trained by Sabrina), and Lilac (Agatha's prodigy), we're in quite the influential position.
the real question is pegleg, hook hand, or eye patch?
>>32297195Eye patch.Ceru is going to have a big scar over her eye, an eye patch, and a beret.It's just a matter of how we get to that state.
>>32297192And daughter of one of the 4 legends of our society.
>>32297192Plus our value as the daughter of an Elite Four member.We shouldn't mention that fact to them.
>>32297186Kitty as our ship figurehead?>>32297192Bruise and Ceru are also children of the Elite 4 (Ceru would inherit her mother's M-virus genes and Bruise his father's...moves?). Come to think of it, Goldie would have gotten his M-virus count from Sabrina too.
>>32297186Holy shit...Holy shit....It'd be a bad idea without knowing air currents but... If you somehow got the Smolderans to do Hot air balloons it'd be like Fire nation all over again.
>>32297206Kind hoping for some nice facial scars.>>32297232no
>>32297232Do balloons/airships exist and does Ceru know about them?
>>32297206but Big Boss isn't a pirate.also Big ...Boss....Ceru's new goal in life? Surpass the Boss?
>>32297232But who would be the Zuko to our... Katara? We're not exactly Aang.>>32297244>Kind hoping for some nice facial scars.Much cooler than Devon's kidney scars, that's for sure.
>>32297232Nah, to many flying monsters and we can't fly.
>>32297244>>32297254Although, honestly, I doubt any Ranger can actually get scars permanently unless some sort of poison is involved. We've all got quite the healing factor.
>>32297249Nah, we're going more towards the mom route anyway.
>>32297232Hot air balloons are cool, but let's settle for Rocket pirates for now.
>>32297232You're jumping the gun professor.You know as well as I do airships come LONG after ships, near the end of the game.
>>32297232>A:tLAThat makes me wonder if there's a group of not-airbender humanoid monsters that are all Flying type aerokinetics. I guess they'd be anthropormorphized sky bisons or lemurs.
>>32297283But we could rule with an iron fist of love and tolerance!
>>32297324>Poke-India has airbendermonsProf pls.
>>32297232Do we know about hot air balloons?You had a chance to make them Rocket reconnaissance devices, but I think you forgot to deliver.No Fire Nation for now.
>>32297232>>32297329When we fight Surge and somehow pass whatever cockamaney test he sets up for us, I hope he tells Ceru>"You're pretty good"while doing the hand gesture.You must do this, Prof.
>>32297348Prof airbendermons, Prof plss
>>32297324>Peaceful looking monk dude>Bigass monster comes outta nowhere to attack him>Hurricane
>>32297378>Hurricane>Not AeroblastDo you even pokeairbend?The trainees are all using Gust.
>adding benders to all of thisNo please.
Protip prof:If you want to hurt us in a narratively significant manner, do it in a way that leaves a cool eye scar.
>>32297451I hear you.
>>32297451left eye or right eye?
>>32297472I almost deleted it out of fear of it being mishandled. Continue with your QMing... stuff.
>>32297472'Course, then, that would make Vi-Smokhan our Big Boss. I guess Giovanni could be...the Colonel?
>>32297472Love you Prof
>>32297490I have 4chanx.
>>32297497We're not getting the injury SOON.Just, you know, eventually. It's in the "one day" pile.
>>32297472As long as it's a tasteful scar-acquiring, I think it'll be good.
>>32297497The PlasmaLa Li Lu Le Lo
>>32297472Although, I think it'd be better to leave it for when we're an adult. A kid with an eye scar...that's, uh...it's like a kid with a skull tattoo on the back.
>>32297536Who do you think you are?
>>32297536>>32297472yeah, put it off until we're in the professional soldier of the dome segment.
>>32297535That would be the esper conspiracy back at Kanto Dome, though.
>>32297547I'm just saying, Prof. The only acceptable chuuni characters we've got in the Dome are Lilac and Devon.
>>32297585>>32297567>>32297535>>32297497Okay, I admit it.I don't keep up with metal gear. I've never played one of the games. The only exposure I have to it is people telling me how wicked sick it is all the time. I missed the metal gear train and I have no idea what's going on.
>>32297613I just watched Let's Plays of the whole main series.
>>32297451>>32297472>Wanting to fuck with our vision when we're a gunnerPls no.
>>32297634they also made comic adaptions
>>32297613Buy the Legacy Collection. I did. Playing through MGS4 right now. Getting close to my first boss fight with the B&B unit (their name still makes me cringe, though).The first Metal Gear game I played, though, was Rising. Fucking wonderful soundtrack for all the bosses. And that fucking senator. Oh man.
>>32297652That's why I almost deleted my post.I really hope that doesn't happen.Depth perception isn't a huge thing for long range combat, but fuck if I'm not worried it might come up.
>>32297652It's just an eye scar. And even if we had one eye down, our Aura sense will hopefully be high enough to actually substitute for our actual eyesight. Some practice over at Fuchsia Gym for blind fighting would also help.We're just talking about cool cosmetic stuff.
>>32297676and by isn't a big thing I mean you have exactly the same depth perception with one eye as two outside of like, two feet.
>>32297472Is there any reason that we'd actually keep the fucked up eye instead of getting a new one? Both the eyes we have now came from that crytten.
>>32297652We don't have to lose the eye.Plus we can always just have a new one implanted.Or get a staryu gem, which we should get eventually anyway.
>>32297661>"Ceru! the grafts! They're horrifying! How can you do this?!?!">Can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs Kurojo."
>>32297712We get a new eye, it's the scar on the face that we want.
>>32297713We really do need a fucking staryu gem if we can catch one.We need to get a staryu gem for every member of cerulean gym. It's pure water if I recall, and amazing for regen.
>>32297733The evolution is water/psychic, but it needs a stone to evolve so it's not like unwanted evos are likely. Sanna got one when she already had grass implants.
>>32297733It is, and It provide crazy fucking regen.Only like a day for a new limb.Misty has 2 and runs regen in fights to the point where it makes a large difference.More tanky than brock.
>>32297758Yeah it takes a stone, and even if we DO ever come across a stone we can roll a save and burn Ten if we have to to resist.
Anybody else notice how Dewgong can crack open Shelder with their horns?Anyone else think we should take advantage of that in some way?
>>32297733Where would we place it? On our back? Shoulders? In the middle of our chest so we can pretend to be Tony Stark?
>>32297823middle of the stomach, under the mesh of our armor bikini
>>32297809>unbreakable shield meets unstoppable spearGuess the spear wins out. We need to evolve first, though.
>>32297844>>32297823meant upper stomach, right where you have that part in you ribcage.
>>32297823I wonder how that would affect our Rest?>>32297854Yeah but using it now makes the evolution better.
>>32297823Replace the nipples with 2 of them
>>32297823The chest is usually the primary choice, yes.>>32297844>>32297860That or maybe a pseudo-belly piercing would be good too. 'Course, that would rather depend on how large (or rather, small) Staryu gems can POSSIBLY grow to be.>>32297809We haven't really leveled up our horn tackle, but I can see it's application in penetrating through an enemy's guard. It seems as if it may actually develop that way, considering that its current feature is that it can still cause damage even without a full success.
>>32297860Sounds perfect.Or maybe place it close to our neck, so we can pretend it's a beautiful necklace.
>>32297823Either A. where our old eye was or B. right near the chest. Somewhere central. Next to the vitals.or, C, Where our appendix was.
>>32297943A sounds retarded, B is just standard.
>>32297930>>32297920>>32297860Either on the collar bone/chest below the middle of the neck or the place where your ribs part.
I know I'm kinda late to the party, but is there no love for Frost Breath here?It's been the finishing move in most of our big fights. It hits like a motherfucker.
>>32297973We're looking for stability right now. It's at a respectable rank right now anyway.
>>32297973Eh, some love, but we need an improved bread'n'butter.
>>32297973It's our last ditch that we do not want to rely on.Our Ace in the hole and our glass cannon all in one.
>>32297973Last resort anon.Ceru still has virtually no defense.
>>32298004yeah, we DO sort of have to get our face right up in a giant monster's ass to effectively destroy them.
>>32298016Detect is pretty good.I know we don't want to use it much, but monsters do tend to get up in our face and being able to quickly put them down when they do is a good thing.
Would Aurora Beam and Psybeam make a good combo?
>>32297547Hey Prof Detect says "20% Stamina" n the pastebin.Does this mean that it costs 20 points flat or does it mean that it costs 20% of whatever we have left?
>>32298058It would have the best name ever.>Brainfreeze
>>32298060He said that, but it really shouldn't be so since he originally stated that, that was only if it's used for a prolonged period of time. He may have forgotten that.
>>32298060You don't know how stamina works do you?Everything is measured in percents.>>32298039Which is why we have it and our CQC training and our claws.
>>32298058>wall-penetrating beam of cold>mid to long-range Frost BreathYes please.Would be even more terrifying with Ice Beam, where we end up depositing ice directly inside their skull.
>>32298081>>32298058SECONDThat and the psychic bubble mines. Fuck yeah.
“Oright,” you nod. “Me an' me mate will do it if tha' be wha' it takes t' get back ta port.” You tell Marine the news and she sighs.“It'll be a long adventure won't it?”“Yeah, but at least we're safe, more or less, right?” You drop into your own tongue, smiling to Marine to comfort her. The two of you hold hands and nod together.“Aye, cap'n me an' me mate are good.”The Vi-Smokhan seems to smile, keeping his teeth held back, “It is agreed then. I will leave as soon as I have a ship chartered. Should you have business with me tell any Smolodhan belonging to the guild that you would like the see the Vi-Smokhan, Akabaron of Smelda. If they question you, tell them 'Je reap chakuen ojur des lan vize des driens.'”“Wha's tha' mean?”“It is something you come to understand as a Smolderan. Speaking of which, I would advise you not to tell others of our agreement. If the Kahkori found out, they would surely do what they could to stop us from making a seaworthy ship.”You bow your head, again, a little unsure of the honesty in his words because of Kurojo but... “Okay, I won't tell anyone.”“Good, now... You must become hunters. A simple test of your worth and teamwork. I will of course include the others.” He scratches at the beard of his chin in thought, “I will commission for you to take down an Ordile. It is a blue monster with a red crest that lives Among the Mantree coast directly to the east of here. A monster that makes its home in water, one that we find disagreeable Capturing it alive could make for good weapon material... Alternatively, you could hunt for a Garura in the Grassy Plains to the West. Killing one with child could be a bonus.”“Why woul' ye' want th' chil'?”“Tender meat.” The Vi-Smokhan chuckles, a growl rumbling low in his throat at his mirth.> Water Hunt: Ordile- Bonus, take it alive.> Land Hunt: Garura- Bonus, Get one with a child.> I'll discuss this with my team.
>>32298086Yes I know everything is measured in percents, but the cost for Detect is listed differently from every single other move that we have or can get.It's a legitimate question.
>>32298086We've been hoping to get increased stamina, though.Just wouldn't make sense for Ranger Ceru to have the same amount as Rocket Ceru or Elite Four Ceru, you know?
Why is Frost Pulse not added to the pastebin?
>>32298109> I'll discuss this with my team.Let's talk it out with them first.
>>32298109>> I'll discuss this with my team.I -want- to do the water mission, but we are obliged to tell our friends about it and ask which they want.
>>32298109> Water Hunt: Ordile- Bonus, take it alive.
>>32298109>> I'll discuss this with my team.
>>32298124Listed as frost wave. Though it really should be under Ice moves.
Kurojo:Forever regret you didn't spend more time teaching cerulean the language BEFORE she met those damn pirates.
>>32298153Kurojo seems good for anything, but if the Araraki hasn't run off yet (we can probably go track her down if needed), we should see if she has any sort of specialty to offer. She wanted to become a hunter too, right?
>>32298124This.Can't let Prof forget.
>>32298166I thought it was Fighting/Ice combo type with Fighting being the main damage?
>>32298166oops missed it, sorry.
>>32298198That it is, it'll stay there then.
>>32298109So the Ordile is obviously a Totodile, right? Or one of its evolutions. I heard you could keep a real world crocodile's mouth closed with a rubber band? Well, it's a monster, so it'll probably take more than that, but normal materials should suffice I think.Garura...maybe a Kangaskahn? Or maybe some sort of Monhun tiger monster.
>>32298109>> I'll discuss this with my team.Because I want to know if the Araraki and Kurojo are okay with hunting in the water.I know Ceru and Marine have combat bonuses in the sea, but if our other two party members can't come with us, then the water hunt might be harder than the land hunt.
>>32298109>[x] Water Hunt: Ordile- Bonus, take it alive.another chance to get Aqua jet down
>>32298109>[x] Other Why not both? We have all of the time in the world right? More money is a good thing.
I have a question on our skills.Our Polearms skill is level 1 and provides a +2 bonus.As does our Thrown WeaponsWhy then does our CQC only give us +3 for level 3?Same with Herbology and Gurellia Warfare.And Also, Why does Aquatic and Amphibious combat only provide a +1 for level 2?
>>32298287I guess because the first two include weaponry/tools.Aquatic and Amphibious provide +1 PER rank. Read it again.
>>32298331wrong thread chumbut I totally agree with you58 is shit
>>32298286>Why not both?Because some other team will take the job we don't, probably.If it's still there after our current is done, then sure.
>>32298331aw shit, posted in the wrong thread, that was meant for hollow quest
>>32298339Prof, could you answer the question earlier in this thread.Does chaining Quick Attack with Icy Wind apply the debuff faster?
>>32298311Oh ok, but that still doesn't explain why we only get +3 when we spent a good year with the ninja masters and the bonus is barely better than the 3 months we spend with misty.
>>32298339HQR is happening (fatebreaker is bascially a do over)anon confuzzled his tabs
>>32298331>>32298339He posted in the wrong quest.
>>32298354>>32298339You mean does it apply the affects and damage faster. Because it doens't, it just allows us to get it off quicker.
>>32298355Because we only spent that many points to rank it up. How is that not clear?
>>32298354>>32298360Wait, what did that archive say?
>>32298355Because you were busy doing other things with CQC training on the side.>>32298372Nah, I know what it is. I don't live under a rock.
>>32298384Then wouldn't you change the rank to like 1.5? because the inconsistent ranking/leveling system is confusing.
>>32298360Then next time, you should take the time to actually properly read a question before you answer it. Can it even be chained with Icy Wind? What would the point of doing so be?
>>32298384oh so you're too good to live under an aggregate of minerals is that it huh? HUH!?!
>>32298405What are you talking about? For Fuchsia CQC? It's rank 3 and it gives a +3 bonus. It's not that hard to understand. Really, you're the only person who's ever been confused by this.
>>32298379We spent three points on it assuming we would get a +6 bonus, because it was shown that 1 rank = +2 bonus.
>>32298411Getting the attack off quicker.
>>32298432No? No one assumed that.
So, discuss with team, with ceru-preference being water mission, yeah?I hope the two unknowns (kurojo and the bone girl) are cool with water missions.
>>32298383Quick attack gives priority. At low ranks its exclusive to movement and a physical strike, at higher ranks it can apply that blessing to other attacks.I'll have to make a notation that a quick strike does less damage for virtue of balancing until its high enough to nullify that penalty.
>>32298430Yes, but for Polearms we are Rank 1 and get a +2.
>>32298467>I'll have to make a notation that a quick strike does less damage for virtue of balancing until its high enough to nullify that penalty.Would Lock On nullify that? When we use it for ranged attacks.
>>32298467>until its high enough to nullify that penaltyIs the it here referring to Quick Attack or the move it's boosting?
Anyway.On another topic of discussion.HOW MUCH of our boat are we going to be making out of monsters?It might be cheaper to just make it out of mostly giant monster shell rather than selling the giant monster shell and buying wood.
>>32298497All of it.
>>32298477Yeah? Which is irrelevant to the bonus other training disciplines offer.If my currency is worth double of yours, then it's worth double of yours.
>>32298493...Yes.>>32298491Lock On require concentration. It's best taken as a standalone action to line up the shot and predict target trajectory.>>32298521
>>32298521But nothing was ever said about one training being better than another.In fact if one training is going to be better it is going to be the Fuschia because they're fucking Elite ninjas.
>>32298521Uhh not that anon but why in the world would Cerulean Polearm training be any better than Fuschia CQC training?
>>32298551>Lock On require concentration. It's best taken as a standalone action to line up the shot and predict target trajectory.No, I mean AFTER we prepare Lock On. Then if we chain an attack afterward, would the penalty be nullified?
>>32298551Did part of your post get cut off?
>>32298551>>32298521Did you mean to say something here or did you get cut off?
>>32298557Well. One is hand to hand combat. The other uses tools. And if we can learn anything from history, it's that tools make you more effective.
“I'd 'ppreciate if'n I coul' discuss this matt'r wit' me crew.”“Yes, you may. I don't need confirmation of what you choose to hunt, either quarries are yours. Just beware of the other monsters you don't intend to quarrel with.” A low rumbling laugh and he gets up, eyeing you carefully. He utters a quick word to Nala beyond the door, and it opens as he walks out of the room.Seeing the time to leave, you and Marine hurry after, holding hands for each other's comfort.Back up in the bar. The Araraki and Kurojo wait for you near the entrance, which actually surprises you, given that the lizard had been so set on scurrying away at the first chance she got.Kurojo looks to you, with some small sign of relief upon his face.“You were gone for a whire, thought he meant to eat you or something...” Kurojo jokes, though his posture is rather serious. He hadn't said anything, but you can tell that he was concerned.He reaches for you, but you flinch a little bit away, “No, just talking. We got a job, well a test to become rangers. Garura, a monster to the west, we get a bonus for one with a child. Ordile to the East, a bonus if we catch it alive.”Marine gives Kurojo a slight jab in his forearm and cocks her head over to the Araraki that's waiting patiently. She seems startled when Kurojo translates out of nowhere. He seems a bit snarky with it, but Marine's glare makes him relay the information a bit more gently.“I think Marine and I would be good for the Ordile, but if you guys want to hunt the Garura...” You smile kind of sweetly, even though you're really not in the mood after all that's happened.“I've heard of Garura from Mukon. That Smorodhan is trying to pray a trick. Ones with children are twice as mean. They fight tirr they are dead.”“What about the Ordile?” You ask, the Araraki nods after the tanslation.“Ahm...” The Araraki finally speaks up in common, “Ordile. We can do.”
>>32298859Get her name. We needs it.
>>32298859I like her.
>>32298859Well, at least give marine the option translated now.Crocodile seems good, yeah?
>>32298859So apparently The Araraki is little sister tier awesome. Never letting this one go nope.>Get her name.
>>32299074She may be a shy scaly skull-wearing desert lizard on two feet, but she's OUR shy scaly skull-wearing desert lizard on two feet.
“Yeah, I think the Ordile is good too.” Marine smiles, more for the Araraki's comfort. For some reason she's being really nice to the lizard. The Araraki bows her head beneath her mask, averting eye contact.“We sorry if trouble, Jo.” She seems to say to Kurojo.The Red bird scratches at his tusks,”Whatever.” He dismisses her,” Ordile it is then. I will use my sword.” He points over to his back, the shining blade in a pitch-black sheath.“We... Ahm... We get weapon before leave.” The Araraki says after a translation, she glances to you and Marine, still a bit anxious at everything.“Uh...” You and Marine look at each other, somewhat confused. “I'll use my guns?” You say, showing your palms. Kurojo knows a bit about them at least.Marine clacks her hardened knuckles together, “Pewter style for me then!” She giggles, flexing her fingers. I'll bash it good in the head!"The Araraki leads the three of you to something of a hostel made entirely out of bone in a part of the city that's obviously permeating with Araraki culture and architecture. Whole skeletons molded around mud and clay for less temporary homes and buildings with others composed of nothing but a few giant ribs and skins sewed together and wrapped around the outside.“We go alone. Wait please.” She disappears inside, and you almost take a step forward, before being halted by Kurojo. “She meant herself.” he explains.“Bu' she said we.. An' then alone...” You realise how much more the Araraki's speech is. “Why she b' sayin' we all th' time?”Kurojo shrugs, “I didn't ask.”The three of you wait for a little before the Araraki comes out with an odd weapon. A long staff of bone with an entirely simple design, a club at one end, a single-edged blade carved out of sharpened bone. “We ready.”
I almost want to take the smolders to our dome and show them our horrible monster chop shop labs just for the reaction.I mean, they're living happy tribal lives dealing with issues like getting eaten or starving at worst, and we've got horrible sci-fi labs of existential dread and atrocity hidden in our hat.We could flip their lids.
“Oi lass, wha's yer name?” You ask with a little smile, for her benefit.“Ah... Erm... We say when friend.” She seems pretty reserved about giving up what every Kahkori seems intent on giving out, and what Smolderans only seem to say when necessary. It kind of bothers you honestly that you have to refer to her bey “hey you!”You look to Kurojo with an asking expression and he shrugs,” I do not know, I told you they are weird.” He says in your tongue, only to receive a little jab in the ribs from Marine.“I told you to be nice Jojo...” Marine pouts.Kurojo rubs at his side tenderly,”Rather dear with monster...” He says off-hand, only to be grabbed by the tusk.“Come on, let's go!” Marine yells to the Araraki, as she drags Kurojo behind her. Some of the Araraki peek out of their homes to watch the curious display, you wave back at them and follow after, hoping that they sooner forget this little incident.“We sorry...” She says again, gripping her weapon anxiously, as she picks up her pace, taik swaying back and forth under the leather robes....Onward to your first hunt!
>>32299176So, little girl.HOW many ghosts and ancestors do you have in your armor and tools and weapons?Like, rough count. Ballpark. Two dozen? Three?
>>32299211So I assume it's close enough that we don't need to gather supplies.
>>32299211Kinda sad we didn't visit the market to gear up, but WE POOR AS SHIT so it doesn't matter I guess.
>>32299176>we we we we we we we we weSo they're either weird esper things or they're mediums.Awesome...
>>32299261Or just weird.OrLizard Fairys
>>32299211Is Marine our anime-Misty and Kurojo our anime-Brock? Always one of them grabbing the other by a facial appendage.
>>32299261COMMUNISTS!!!Kurojo and Rohn'ald Reh'gann hate them!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yDrtNEr_5M
>>32299273Could be the reason why Marine is looking after her.
>>32299261Or maybe pic related?
>>32299216What if they're conglomerations of several species living in symbiosis and they just happen to function in a humanoid fashion?
>>32299332Then ask how many anyway.Duh.
>>32299311Space viruses centered around emotion?
>>32299216>>32299261Man mediums would be awesome. Carry around weapons made from monster parts with their ghosts still haunting them and then channel those spirits to do freaky ghost attacks in battle. It would certainly add to their creepy reputations that they have with the other races.
>>32299356Is that so hard to believe in a world where some would consider Ceru a monster?
Completely unrelated, but paras spores are native ONLY to where we come from, right?
>>32299471Thanks for reminding me of that you dickbag. >One of the cutest bugmons has a KoS order in this setting.>Its not like it the Paras's fault the spores eat them alive so much.
>>32299492actually, ANYTHING with the spores is KoS.If you see a guy with a mushroom growing from his head, you shoot that guy. Then you burn him. Without breathing.
>>32299504I know that but the spores are native to the poor, poor Paras. I mean cmon even in the games the fucking thing eats them alive from the inside out as they evolve. Give the little guys a fuckin break man.
>>32299546Hey, I feel bad for zombies too.Doesn't mean I don't shoot them with extreme prejudice and then dispose of the body as is fitting of a biohazard.
You head outside of the city's wall, noting that there's a guard positioned high up on towers. Kahkori up there, with Smolderan patrolling the wall below. Without repel tech it's no wonder that they need to keep up some kind of a guard.Up north you see mountains looming in the distance beyond, with great trees populating the southeast, and endless wet storming marshes to the northeast dark clouds loom over that horizon.You ask Kurojo about that area. “Thundering Marshes.” He says, “Mukon said it arways rain and storm there. Strong, and fast monsters there.”The four of you walk down the south road in silence for a while, you occasionally asking questions about the area, yet there still many things that Kurojo doesn't know.“So, why y' say 'we' missy, wha's that about?” You say to the Araraki, prompting her attention.“Ahm. We... say we. Be...cause we we.”You blink at her. “Say agin?”“We say we...” She thinks it over.” Because... Not one, but we.”“How many? Two?” You ask, not getting much help from Kurojo with his still lingering bias. He's seemed a bit upset about this even after getting punished by Marine... In fact, that probably hasn't helped. Though it does seem to be getting the Araraki to warm up. “Yes.” She begins to clap with weapon in hand, yet suddenly decides against it, resuming her nearly religious posture.You blink again, “Huh. Wha's that like?”“Not know. What one like?” She replies with a little curiosity, yet still avoiding eye contact.
The cordyceps only infects and controls insects the way it does due to insectoid immune systems being extremely primitive. It would be impossible for a fungus to infect anything else.Except POKESCIENCE, but I just wanted to share that, so whateverAlso, spores are worse than Hitler, espers, and Esper Hitler. Fuck 'em.
>>32299617>Though it does seem to be getting the Araraki to warm up. “Yes.” She begins to clap with weapon in hand, yet suddenly decides against it, resuming her nearly religious posture.So if they're mediums, then I assume her weapon is like Blue?
>>32299617I prefer it to two.Once my arm came off, and that was just awful.
>>32299617Ground/Ghost, and their respect for Grass comes from their type weakness to it?
>>32299619I would make a counterpoint but I am never, ever going to google search fungal infections more than absolutely necessary.
>>32299595Heres the thing about zombies, the zombies cant breed. Parasect are forcefully commanded to breed by the spores and implant them into their children. Thereby enslaving the child even before it is born. Srsly it makes me sad that they are so utterly fucked as a species.>>32299619Actually even in the games the spores only infect Paras because of the same concept. The whole SPORES OF DEATH thing is entire on Ygg. Wai u do dis Ygg? Wai?
>>32299681>Wai u do dis Ygg? Wai?Because forced evolution.
>>32299681Because he gets off to suffering.Hopefully he's learned not to inject his fetish into the quest so much.
>>32299701>Suffering in thread 1.I'm sorry to disappoint.
>>32299678I just google searched "fungal infection", went to images, and browsed through it.That's how one becomes strong, Anon.
>>32299699Get to writing, Prof. We're on page 9 and the last update took you close to an hour to write out.
>>32299699Poor fuckin Paras. ;_;
>>32299713>Looked for 5 secondsI'm already about to hurl.
>>32299712You try to make it sound like something major, but it's rather minor stuff, Prof. I wouldn't even call it suffering.
>>32299736Bah Pathetic.>>32299713Im surprised how many are on toenails. Srsly does fungus like toenail flesh or something?
>>32299759What do you call incurable assimilation slavery, then?
>>32299785I'm talking about what Prof is referring to, anon.
>>32299785 a hostile makeover
>>32299617About to say something, you then remember the Smolderan that you killed and wonder about that. “Me thinks... I'll hav' t' wonder th' same.” You give a nervous smile.Within the Mantree Coast, you see many estuaries and a great deal of marshy land flowing into the coastline between the roots of large trees that seem to stand up upon their roots, like a naturally occurring awning.The four of you move carefully, now wading through the much and water. “Move slow, and move around things in water.” Kurojo instructs.You feel out things with your aura, navigating around fish and other things within. The araraki follows, keeping the blunt of her weapon forward, waving it back and forth to check for what lies within.You all eventually make it to a soggy patch of land, and take a seat to work things out. It's not raining right now, but the place is damp enough to make a difference, there are some bug monsters that skit across the surface of the water, long fish buried down in the mud, other flatfish the same. A long bug whizzes past your head at a breakneck speed, to catch a small bird, a pidgey in its legs, wrestling it down into the water.You swallow.Off in the distance there are those bells hanging from select trees, the same kind that tried to eat you back in Kakarkiko.You hear a splash, and something flails about as the water turns red.The Araraki and Marine seem to turn a bit white at that one. “Th-th-that? Really?” She whispers, shaking, “What the he-”The long bug darts out of the water, flying as fast as an arrow, but not quite as straight as one.Well, you're gonna need to start somewhere...> Try to find something to bait a carnivore with... (Ideas?)> Dive into the deeper waters and search for it.> Set up a temporary camp and trade stories while waiting for dusk.> (Other)
>>32299866>> Try to find something to bait a carnivore with... (Ideas?)Clearly we need fish. Lots and lots of fish.
>>32299866>> Try to find something to bait a carnivore with... (Ideas?)ourselves as baituse detect to dodge and then shoot it
>>32299866>> Try to find something to bait a carnivore with... (Ideas?)Catch a fish or bird.Tie that to a stick.Repeatedly splash it into the water.Crocodiles are attracted to A. blood and B. splashing. A splashing bloody thing will cause them to strike the fastest.
>>32299866>About to say something, you then remember the Smolderan that you killed and wonder about that. “Me thinks... I'll hav' t' wonder th' same.” You give a nervous smile.I don't understand the connection between that and what the Araraki said. That was rather random.Would the creature eat the bell things? We could use them as bait. Have Ceru use her Icy Wind to force them to move downward.What's the area like? Marine and Ceru can act in the water well enough, but Kurojo needs proper footing and who knows how the Araraki can act. Ask her what she can do.
>>32299919>I don't understand the connection between that and what the Araraki said. That was rather random.Ceru was thinking that she might have just gotten herself haunted because of killing that dude. She thinks she might now have a ghost with her.The Araki are a race of mediums, apparently. They're no alone because they have ghosts with them.See it now?
>>32299866Shit, I can't remember what the dragonfly Pokemon was called. Kinda sounds like it, though.Also, is there an advantage or disadvantage to waiting 'til dusk to hunt the fish?>>32299919The bells are Victreebel.
>>32299977Yanma or yanmega
>>32299977The bells are probably Weepingbells. Victreebel looks like a pitcher plant
>>32299919>That was rather random.Ceru wasn't "home" for the event. Call it that she has even a clue that she's not alone in her own head.There's soft footing in some locations and you've learned the water is of varying depths from even just your wade. Some spots are deep enough to go up to your chest while others are so shallow it's not even past your ankles.
>>32299866>> Try to find something to bait a carnivore with... (Ideas?)ask jojo what it might like
>>32299977>Also, is there an advantage or disadvantage to waiting 'til dusk to hunt the fish?Well, unless Marine has eyes meant for deep water exploration, she and the Araraki may have trouble seeing in the dark. Crocodiles can hunt in the day, but they're also nocturnal creatures.>>32299866Idea. How strong is Kurojo? I was thinking, after we find some bait, we could draw the Ordile close to the tree and have Kurojo chop it down and make it fall on it.Alternatively, how many Bellsprout are on the tree? If possible, we could attack and harvest their sweet nectar to use its scent to attract the Ordile? We could use our Icicle Gun to harpoon one from a distance so that we can get it away from the tree. That or ask Kurojo or the Araraki if they've got similar skills.
>>32300034Right so we need to purge Rocket Mode. Thanks for the reminder. Expect bad dreams tonight.
>>32300073What? What the hell is the relation between what he said and Rocket mode.>>32300034>Ceru wasn't "home" for the event. Call it that she has even a clue that she's not alone in her own head.Okay, you're still confusing me. What event. And what did you mean to say with your second sentence, since your grammar is a little messed up.
>>32300088When we killed Yellow, we couldnt remember it because of Rocket Mode. IE its brainwashing that is BAD for us and we need to purge it ASAP, if we can at all.
>>32300073No you fuck, he's talking about Hypno.
>>32300088I think he's trying to equate Rocket mode to having a second personality
>>32300073>>32300099Are you one of the revolutionfags? Please kill yourself.
>>32300034>>32300099Okay, if this is true, what does that have to do with what I said at all?
>>32300099We are not getting rid of Rocket mode.Control and refine yes, but not get rid of.
>>32300117No i dont care about overthrowing shit. Rocket Mode is brainwashing though. It needs to go.
>>32300113Okay, so I'm wrong too. Was it actually about Rocket mode? Because that's more 'training' than 'evil gremlin living in your head'.
>>32299866>>32300071Bellsprout have sweet scent, right? So as to not needlessly have its scent attract random monsters, we shouldn't rupture the head when trying to shoot one down. Rip it open and dip it into the water.>>32300142Nah.
>>32300146Alright, thanks, you cleared it up.
I'm not viva la revolucion but>support being a Manchurian Candidate sorry but that's gotta at least get called out on
>>32300156It's a Weepinbell, not Bellsprout. Bellsprout is the pre-evo that's a tiny little bulb on tiny little root-legs, these are the evos.
>>32300156If i found out i had hidden string attached to MY brain i certainly wouldn't want them there. Why the hell would Ceru?
What is the plan when we attract the creature?How much rope do we have available?
>>32299866>>32300071>>32300156Better than swimming in the water hunting for fish.>>32300034How murky is the water anyway? I assume we can't see anything since we've lost track of where the Ordile is.
>>32299866Prof, you should really wrap things up now.
>>32300178>>32300185You're all acting like there's a code word hidden in Ceru's head. Nowhere in the quest has that actually been the case. They have espers for that.You realize Rockets also have more free will than the average Ranger, right?
>>32300178If the trigger is "I am in terrible danger" and the implanted suggestion is "kill the danger very efficiently" then I am totally okay with it.Hell, I'm okay with Giovanni having the option of taking us over if we rebel because it makes him like us more and I'm never not going to vote for what he says anyway.
>>32300261But there ARE codewords inside Ceru's brain. BECAUSE ESPERS. Also..>Implying freewill.
>>32300299WHERE ARE THE CODEWORDSWHEN HAVE THEY BEEN USED AGAINST US>>Implying freewill.We pledged our loyalty to Boss, just like how everyone we know has pledged loyalty to the state. We are under contract to serve and protect the Dome.How much free will do soldiers have in real-life military service? Not much? Woah, that's a shocker. Who knew we aren't allowed to shoot our superiors?
You talk it over with Kurojo, about the Ordile and what it might like. Marine says that you should try berries, you suggest luring it with fish, while Kurojo says that attracting it with a weepingbell might work as he points out the yellow things hanging high up in the trees.A white monster flutters through the air, two scary eyes upon its wings. It gets a bit close to the weepingbell and a flurry of leaves whip out, cutting the thing to shreds before vines lash out, quickly snatching the morsels out of the air. The bell expands to swallow its prey in a split second, acid drooling down to the water below while it squeezes shut, looking like a happy drooling maw.Kurojo stares, Marine stares, and you stare. You all blink in silence. The Araraki seems to realize what you're all staring at. Everyone turns their own kind of pale.The Araraki speaks up, reaching feebly, “Ah, please. Please no. We no hurt plant.”“Smart for an Araraki.” Kurojo nods.“I'm just agreeing,” Marine says.“So, we get some fish?” You ask, your eyes sparkling a little bit in the dusky mangrove forest.“Agreed.” Kurojo and Marine say in unison. The Araraki seems sincerely confused that her plight had been heard so easily...>[End Thread]
>>32300382Look, Araraki, we're all water types here. Or ground types. Or kurojo.FUCK dealing with plants. We agree.
>>32300382are there codewords for Rocket mode?
>>32300382Little Sister is VERY smart. I love her already.
>>32300449Actually, that's just her religious beliefs. Don't fuck with plants.Remember?
>>32300382So. Just throw fish into the water and try to lead it into land?
>>32300413>Ceru uses Icy wind on Weepinbel.>Its Super Effective!You were saying?
>>32300382So! How's that side story coming along? Will you post it on Twitter when it's done?
>>32300413Water/Ice + Fight/?(Flying)? + Water/Ground + ???
>>32300479If we can, we should fashion some kind of noose with splashing bait in the middle.Then, when it bites, we tighten the noose around the maw, giving us a chance to get in close and wrangle it as a team.Inb4 I don't know the scale of the croc at all.
>>32300491Weepingbel No.2 uses Razorleaf on MarineMarine is deadWeepingbel No.3 uses Giga drain on CeruCeru is deadYou were saying?
>>32300508>If we can, we should fashion some kind of noose with splashing bait in the middle.Possible. We might be able to fashion it out of jungle foliage. Kurojo might know how to do so, as a hunter, and we've received guerrilla and, probably unmentioned, survival training. Just bring that up next thread.If we're not dealing with a monhun monster, we're likely dealing with either a Croconaw or Feraligatr.>>32300530The idea was to shoot it down from a distance. Not engage it up close, anon. That was pretty clearly anon's intention.
>>32300493Still working on it. Trying to get this other thing done for AoPH though. More actual job hours lately too, and then notes for quests. Heh.Busy busy...
>>32300546They have ranged attacks too Anon.
>>32300546I hope we BROUGHT some rope. It would make much easier.
Let's say that there were like twenty weepingbells situated in that tree if varying size.This would make the characters' comic reactions appear far more appropriate.>>32300564Twitter tomorrow.
>>32300552Yeah? And we're a sniper, are we not?
>>32300583*WeepinbellOur Icy Wind would hit all of them, but I'd imagine it wouldn't instantly kill them. Maybe if it was Blizzard, though...
>>32300588Grass beats Water, even with our sniper bonus
>>32300560>I hope we BROUGHT some rope. It would make much easier.Search for the thread when we left Kakarkiko. It mentioned what supplies we brought with us. I don't think we had any rope, though.
>>32300583>Twenty of them.Ok i take back what i said. FUCK ALL OF THAT SHIT.
>>32300607I suppose we could use some saplings instead, but that shit is just asking to break at a critical time.>>32300623>>32300602>>32300583That just means they're an environmental hazard.Attempt to drop some onto the croc later so they take their plant anger out on it.
>>32300630>That just means they're an environmental hazard.>>Attempt to drop some onto the croc later so they take their plant anger out on it.That's actually part of why I mentioned them.
You know.Now that I think about it.Those weepingbells have all the rope we need.Any plant with vine whips, in fact.
>>32300606And the idea is to not be within a range where we can be hit by razor leaf/sensed by the Weepingbell. That or at a range where Marine can easily use her shells to defend against it. Again, the reason I brought up the fact that we're a sniper is because that means we've got a greater range than it.Not that it really matters, though, since I don't want to mess with the Araraki's beliefs.
>>32300659A single Giga drain would KO Marine
>>32300641So was my suggestion earlier to have Kurojo chop the tree down viable? Because it seems like you were shutting it down here.That or we could try and have Ceru shoot one down on top of the monster.>>32300655We can craft a restraining device using tree branches too. Dry tree branches, anyway. Something to restrain the croc's mouth. The rest of its body would be troublesome, though.Prof, would we be able to keep the croc alive if we chopped off its tail? Seeing as how the monster on the ship last time had its lower jaw ripped off and lived up to when we docked at port?
I've been seeing a lot of guesses that they're ground.Banking on the similarity to Cubone?
>>32300697nah.I'm banking on it being a ground/plant symbiote made of two seperate entities, one ground type one plant type.
>>32300697Oh yeah, the whole i love bones thing makes me think cubone as fuck.>TFW they are ghost/dark or some crazy shit like that.
>>32300697parasites using corpses as bodies?
>>32300697I'm banking it on the fact that they live in the goddamn desert.Could also be Poison, though. Maybe Grass, if they aren't native to the desert.
>>32300684Again, I'm talking about doing it from a DISTANCE. We're a sniper, alright? I'm not saying we get Marine to go up close to it. I was saying she stayed close to US while we sniped so that, if it actually possessed the senses needed to find where we are, she could defend against the razor leaves. And we'd be doing this from a DISTANCE where the razor leaves would not have as much effectiveness as our Icicle Gun.
So.We need to discuss something you guys.Harpoons.Why are we not sticking spear-like objects in our guns, tying ropes to them, and shooting them at our foes?
>>32300726We also have 3 guns, so we can take out at least 3 of the immobile targets at once after each Lock-On.
>>32300737It would be ungainly. We cannot stick it down the whole barrel, so when it's shot out, it would quickly lose any sort of accuracy.
>>32300737>Sticking pointy, sharp and BARBED things into our flesh. Ummm fucking what?
>>32300754Anon, you don't stick the tip of the harpoon into the barrel of the harpoon gun.
>>32300737They wouldn't be very large harpoons. We can fit small metal ball bearings in there, though, but I think they still have to be propelled by water.
>>32300754We already have fanfiction about pointy barbed things going into our flesh.
>>32300692>Prof, would we be able to keep the croc alive if we chopped off its tail?Are... Are you using monhun logic?Yeah, if you chop off the tail you'd get to keep that.>>32300720That's just creeepy.
>>32300765Depending on what kinds of explosives the Dome has, we could stick a small bomb inside, freeze it within an icicle and shoot it out, then trigger its detonator. Lots of potential.We could also put poison in our water sacs, but that would rather depend on whether the poison can affect us from inside them and if our omniguns are not connected to our circulatory system. Something to clarify with Prof. If it turns out to be viable, we could shoot out solid icicles that poison an enemy as soon as they penetrate the skin.
>>32300800worked for Wormwood, the Gentleman Corspe
>>32300800>Yeah, if you chop off the tail you'd get to keep that.Yeeeeeessssss.
>>32300800>>32300810see, and here I was thinking it was using the bones for structure with the rest being made of dirt and plants.All sealed in with plaster.
>>32300867too bad we don't have any actual cutting attacks deeper than like, an inch.We should learn better cryokinesis to shoot water swords.
>>32300697Would have, before you revealed that the only known hunting races in this society are the Kahkori, Smolder, and Araraki. Now I just think they're some sort of OC race based on Cubone, like the Kahkori kinda are on those lucha birds.
>>32300883Um, have you forgotten about a certain steel implement one of our friends lugs around?And our Icicle Guns can penetrate flesh pretty deeply. They're just made for piercing, rather than cutting.
>>32300804Sounds like some gunk shot or something.Not learning that under normal circumstances.I was thinking of taking out the corporal ammo limit though so that Ceru cloud learn more gunner moves and instead rely on stamina.Would open up like Rock shot and other of that good stuff you all wanted Octillery/remoraid for.>>32300883Kurojo's got a Long Sword and The Araraki has a glaive.>>32300889Nah. They're vampires.
>>32300900Oh yeah, the sword. Kurojo, get his tail!And we'd have to pierce him like a goddamn perforated paper towel for our spears to count for cutting.
>>32300906...what?Actually no. nvm that only makes little sister MORE adorable.
>>32300906Vampires, eh?Sounds inconvenient. And doesn't explain the "we" business.Also please don't make everything stamina dependent, we have like none and are always burning through it.
>>32300906>Ceru cloudThis is the time that I understand my spelling's gone to shit.
I feel really fucking dumb. I just figured out that orodile is Ferraligator.
>>32300906Making the gun moves use Stam kills the only thing I like about the gunner moves.
>>32300923Dun worry mine went hours ago.
>>32300906>I was thinking of taking out the corporal ammo limit though so that Ceru cloud learn more gunner moves and instead rely on stamina.>Would open up like Rock shot and other of that good stuff you all wanted Octillery/remoraid for.Why would you need to remove the ammo limit?It'd make sense just to have water moves like Aqua Jet or Water Gun rely on the ammo, Icicle Gun on stamina, then stuff like rock shot on a combination of the two.>>32300907We'll definitely have Kurojo concentrate on slicing the tail off; we don't want that thrashing around.>>32300920They might be SOUL vampires.
>>32300906So, question, Prof. Are we expected to craft some sort of tool to drag the monster back to the village or is that just the sort of thing we don't need to think about?
How volatile stuff can we keep in the water guns?We could create extremely supercooled fluids by stocking them with oil or hypersalinated water, which would envelop and freeze with sheer temperature, rather than spearing with ice.
>>32300974Don't think too hard about it.Assume Lynnians,
>>32300923At least you're still comprehensible. When I'm sleepy, my train of thought bleeds into my posts, making everything I say sound completely out of context.
>>32300980>100% chance freeze move.>Like thunderwave but with Freeze.My gods your either insane or a genius.
>>32300990Alright.>>32300906>Not learning that under normal circumstances.What did you mean by this?
>>32301009Heck, we could do it with high-proof alcohol, too, probably.The cooler the freeze point of the chemical used, the more effective.
>>32301016Gunk shot isnt a move that any of our spiecies implants can learn by level up. We'd need it as an egg move (somehow) or a move tutor.
>>32300980>shoot lemon juiceyou fiend
>>32301041>>32300906If that's the case, I'm not talking about naturally creating the poison. Just adding some poison (stuff that doesn't poison through contact) to our omnigun bladders.
>>32301041>egg moveMaybe it would involve getting a monster that has the egg move and then implanting it in us.Hey Ygg, has the Dome experimented with breeding monsters? For implants or otherwise?
>>32301041Gunk shot is one of those tutor moves that can only be learned through tutor- for Octillery anyway.I said under normal circumstances I mean that it's not likely that Ceru would get training to shoot poison like that.>>32301069Might be worth a shot, though I won't say it won't hurt. That shit goes in your body dude.... Your body.Most awkward scene would probably be Kurojo suckling water from Ceru's hand in the desert... Tres awkward...
>>32301069Well anon the reason our species cant learn such a move by level up is one we cant produce the poison and two, we aren't immune to the poison so it would kill us as well. We aren't a fuchsia after all.Actually how the hell do we not kill ourselves with toxic?
>>32301108I'm still kind of trying to figure out what to do with TMs. I've got ideas for them but none make me inherently happy.
I think we ought to try to track down if they can make high proof alcohol in this monster town.If we get some real high proof stuff, we can shoot sticky, sub-arctic temperatures at things. The real question is:>>32301107If we put alcohol in a water bladder, do we get drunk?
>>32301120Honestly leave them out entirely IMHO. TMs are only really in pokemon to allow the player to spread moves around on their pokemon for coverage reasons.
>>32301120Maybe some moves, like Toxic, are just being trained to use special tools, such as a dart coated in lethal poison? Others could be actually learning things from a tutor(ial)?
>>32301107>Might be worth a shot, though I won't say it won't hurt. That shit goes in your body dude.... Your body.Oh no, I'm not saying we'd do this outside. Just at the Dome, whenever we get back. This is also the reason I was asking whether or not our omnigun bladders are connected to our circulatory system or if they're isolated away.And I'm not talking of using the same kind of poison that Janine's skin secretes. I'm talking venom, which requires itself to be injected into the body to have effect. It'd be safer to keep in our omniguns if they're isolated from our circulatory system.
>>32301120Both of these questions>>32301127>>32301147Are dependent on whether or not our omniguns connect to our body's circulatory system. The alcohol/venom would be safe to store if they weren't.
>>32301120video with subliminal messages imparting knowledge for the technique?
>>32301168So TMs are even more brainwashing then?
>>32301107>implying he won't drink from our mouth
>>32301190If I didn't know that was drool, I would be disgusted.
>>32301176would work better than just a low budget educational videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2k9JwGpm1w
>>32301147Well, Ceru fills her bladders by drinking the water down. That's what she's done in the past.>>32301168Thought more of it as something that introduces an antibody or something that interacts with M-virus to create powers that wouldn't initially be learnable.Part of why I don't li->>32301190>Mysterious girlfriend XMy darkest fetish.>>32301190>>implying he won't drink from our mouthAnnnd there goes my train of thought. There it goes, Completely derailed.
>>32301210I think low budget educational videos are perfect.
>>32301211It's just life saving water transfer.Just like the CPR.It's entirely professional.Now, uh, put your lips on my lips.
>>32301211>Well, Ceru fills her bladders by drinking the water down. That's what she's done in the past.Yeah, but I was wondering if they're isolated from her regular circulatory system? If not, then what keeps the water from flowing back into her regular blood flow? Or is it impossible for Ceru to suffer an embolism?
Speaking of shipping, everything's still on hold due to... reasons.So don't expect anything as long as the last fic. And pray that my journey goes well. I plan for it to be a temporary jaunt... but I like to wander.
>>32301285Wait, what journey?I wasn't really expecting the belly rub fic to be that long in the first place. Unless you're talking about the bird bath?
>>32301285I am still helplessly excited for it (whatever it is you may be working on). You can't stop that.
>>32301285>>32301306Bird bath?Belly rubs?I feel like I might be missing something.
>>32301318It's the guy who wrote some smut before.
>>32301318The guy writes smut.Congrats you have made it big. You will know this when random people whom you dont know write smut of your characters.
>>32301368No. I'm aware of the wanderer and that other guy.I'm just concerned that I may have missed something.
>>32301318>>32301384You might not know of the belly rubs, but I remember you were there for when the idea of a fic between Ceru and Kurojo getting really steamy in the bath was brought up.
>>32301391Bah.I still want bruise and ceru in a pool together when things get a little intense.pool ladders being destroyed was mentioned.
>>32301407Wanderer had an email he gave where you could send him suggestions. Look for it in the archives.
>>32301441Arceusspeed you magnificent basterd.
>>32301441Ah, there we go.Anyway, I can wait for whatever fic you may be working on right now to finish. The other 2 you've already done were both pretty great. I still haven't gotten bored with them. Although I guess it helps that my tastes stray towards the extremes.
