OPENING>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F468us4qCUEPreviously: Since arriving upon an unknown chain of islands, a Young Rocket and her friend have become recognized by a village of natives as "Rangers."Now, with the help of an adolescent taking his first strides into a similar profession of monster hunting, the rocket team seek to find their way back home.After two islands, they now take a hunting ship to a city outside the dome.A day out from port and the captain spots a quarry, landing the first blow! 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
I wonder if yesterday's mix up will effect today's turn out....
>>32466473Yay, lets go kill us a crocodile.
WOOT WOOTTime for Hunting!
Time to NOT attack the 20+ Weepinbell hanging around in the treetops!Also, Prof, what did we bring with us? Hopefully some rope?
>>32466624Well, we're going to include them anyway in the plan. It's part of why Prof included them in the first place; he even mentioned as such that he wanted us to drop it on the croc.>>32466473Prof, can't Marine's radar fin help track down the monster?
>>32466473Yo Dran I updated Asher's pastebin for you. Only thing you need to add is the complexity values for the cantrips/combos because you never told us how those get calculated. And maybe whatever Alchemy is classed as. I just guessed and called it "Unified Elementary" because that sounds right.>http://pastebin.com/6GgvdYsu
The four of you stay on the less watery parts of the coastline, shadows falling everywhere as the sun angles to set, casting a glow through the mangrove trees, framed by the distant city walls.You, Kurojo, and Marine set to start trying to scrounge up some fish. At first you're hooked on the idea that you need a rod, a line, and bait.Kurojo reminds you though, that a fishing spear can work just as well as he reaches for a branch on a tree, only to be grabbed by the Araraki.He growls low in his throat, crest folding back, “Let go Araraki.” He commands in their common tongue, but the Araraki doesn't budge, slowly shaking her head, trembling in her own right despite her little bit of defiance.“No.” She whispers, her eyes to the ground. “Please.” She lets go. “We fish.” Without ever looking Kurojo directly in the eye, the lizard sits beside the water, staring down and in with her staff tucked under an arm, the blade pointed backward. Her tail flicks back and forth the scales taking on an orange-ish glow from the sun to accent her lustrous green.You all watch her, to see what she intends to do. Her claws within the water glow green and the algae stirs, as though it's come to life.Kurojo begins to say something, but Marine shushes him to keep him from interrupting.Within moments the Algae moves together, intertwining and lacing itself together.With a swing of her staff's blunt end, she drives the algae down into the water, something thrashing down in the water.The Araraki begins to pull and tug, bracing herself upon her scaled feet, sliding slowly through the wet earth.Marine's the first to move to help, wrapping her arms around the lizard and pulling back, you jump into action behind Marine, freezing your tail and stabbing it down into the soil for even a little anchorage as the three of you try to pull the “line” back.
Kurojo finally steps forward after a moment and launches a vacuum wave into the water, nailing whatever's withinFor a moment, the struggle stops. Yet then it picks right back up, with whatever's in the water bouncing around and out of the algae net!A blue streak flies out of the water!It has the initiative!The three of you are bombarded by a barrage of exploding bubbles snapping and popping all around you painfully and forcing you back.Kurojo slides around to the side, launching another Vacuum wave to knock the thing back, sending it reeling, though only so-far as it does to land upon a giant lilypad with its rectangular eyes and round body exuding frustration.You, Marine, and the Araraki recover from the initial attack, it wasn't the worst thing you've experienced anyway.Alrighty then, time to beat a frog!It stands its ground, watching the three of you carefully. You identify this creature as a Poliwhirl, taking note of the direction of its swirl and size. It's about as tall as you at around four feet.>It's swirl seems to rotate...>It claps in a rhythm...Marine's ready to intercept, watching it carefully.Kurojo readies his sword, preparing to slice the thing in half...The Araraki holds her staff defensively with one hand as the other bears a subtle green glow...>Your move?
>>32466679Thanks, that's a really big help. Looking it over and overwriting my copy.I like how you added the note about the ward.
>>32466624No no, we have to use them as an environmental hazard for the gator.>>32466843>your moveDO NOT OBSERVE ITS DANCE. First step.Second step is shotgun the thing with ice bits.
>>32466843>Your move?Snarl it and v-wave?>>32466866I noticed a typo that I made after I posted it>For example, possessing florakinesis would greatly reduce the strain of creating a plant-based homonculi.>creating a plant-based homonculi.the "a" shouldn't be in there.And you're welcome.
>>32466843shoot the fucker!!no mind rape on our watch
>>32466843So hey>>32466648Can't we use Marine's radar fin to track the croc in the water?I'm assuming the Araraki attacks with grass type attacks, because...green.Water is strong against Water and Ice, so let's use our fighting moves here.The swirl is rotating, so it's trying to put us to sleep. We need to stop that. Alert the others not to look at the swirl on its body or they'll fall asleep.Use Snarl to disrupt its Hypnosis (Status counts as Technical, right?) then Vacuum Wave.
>>32466843>first movePokedex, what's that pokemon?Then kill it.
>>32466977we already identified it. learn to read
>>32466977It said in the post that Ceru recognizes it as a Poliwhirl. It's attempting to use Hypnosis on us. Rain Dance too, maybe? I'm not sure what the clapping is for.
>>32467008>>32467015It's more of a traditionalist thing.I don't feel right unless a pokedex is pulled out whenever a monster makes an appearance.We can skip it.
>>32467015Could be using encore on the Araraki to make it so she can only use that grow algae move.
>>32466843Definitely Snarl into Psybeam.Snarl to interrupt it, Psybeam to confuse it and make it get rekt by our teammates.
Combat talk aside, looks like the arakai is part grass type.I hope my grass/ground symbiote hybrid theory is right.
>>32467050Sounds good to me.
>>32467069It'd make sense. Rempiles seem to have plants growing on them in the world of pokemanz fairly often. Pretty much all of the grass starters are like that.
“Don't look at it!” You snarl, ferociously, taking the thing aback some, the swirling stops and it makes to leap back into the water.The Araraki flings a sphere of green from her hand, hitting home and sending the thing reeling has the ball detonates its energy through it. A second gesture and there's a growth from the lillypad, darting out to restrain the monster.Marine makes to intercept it, to finish it off, but Kurojo takes the initative, drawing his sword in one motion to cut the thing down. He appears to make contact and drives the thing back into a tree on the other side of the water, but once you get a look, the monster's caught the blade between its hands, struggling to hold Kurojo back until it blasts him back with a sudden goat from its “mouth” and chases after him, slapping the bird hard across the face over and over again as it chases him down into the water.If it weren't a life or death struggle, it'd actually be kind of silly...> Dive into the water after him with Marine.> Ask the Araraki if she could do something.> Give him a minute.
>>32467260>> Dive into the water after him with Marine.
>>32467260Silly Kurojo, Water resists Steel! Even if Ygg forgot during our fight with the nar-kage>[x] Dive into the water after him with Marine.
>>32467260>goatYou meant to say gout, I presume.> Ask the Araraki if she could do something.She was able to pull the Poliwhirl out with the algae, right?
>>32467260Try to get ahead of where they are going, and cut them off.
>>32467260>>32467304Also, Marine can keep track of where Kurojo and the Poliwhirl are with her radar fin, right? So we're not in danger of losing track of their positions?
>>32467260>> Ask the Araraki if she could do something.Where is its mouth?
>>32467260>>[X] Dive into the water after him with Marine.
>>32467360Middle of the swirl. I think.
>>32467304She netted it with the algae. Had to actually pull it though.>>32467342Marine can detect things in water when she's in water or things out of water when she's out of water.She can't detect things through a different medium than the one she's in.>>32467374>>32467360Middle of its intestines.
>>32467420What was the effective range of Marine's radar fin anyway?
>>32467260>> Dive into the water after him with Marine.duh
Thought of another compromise. Marine enters, then you and the Araraki can be ready to shoot.
>>32467598Were we even allowed to do that?
>>32467598sounds fineposting this JIChttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK6TXMsvgQg
>>32467260You called the Araraki's weapon a "glaive" in the previous thread. Does that mean she's armed with one of these, except with her weird powers replacing the tamed Carapaceon?
>>32467686Yep, she's pretty much what she's using.
>>32466843So we're around four feet as a 12 year old girl.How tall is everybody else in relation?
>>32467730Kurojo is late adolescent if i recall properly. Like 16, so probably almost full grown. Marine is our age and same height. No clue on the arraraki
>>32467765I asked Prof what his age was before, I think he said it was 14.
>>32467765What's with all the man-sized 16 yr old dudes getting the hots for the chubby 12 yr old?
>>32467730I could totally see Ceru being the smallest one.but we're that little guy surrounded by taller tougher looking warriors. if you turn your back on us we'll do something
>>32467730Kurojo is about 5'2"The Araraki is 4' 11", though she seems rather young in her own right.
>>32467803I don't know, anon. I don't know.
>>32467803Hey breeding age used to be 13.He's just getting an early start.
>>32467765Kurojo is about 14, but for nutritional reasons I expect him to only be an inch or two taller than Cerulean. With maybe one or two growth spurts in him before he hits 18.
>>32467834And the Smolderan are on average around 7ft tall.The Vi-Smokhan was 7'4"Yes, they're huge.
>>32467841She ain't that fat
>>32467874How tall was Yellow?Did we really straight up murder a 7ft tall dude in a bar? That must have been a surreal fight for the observers.
>>32467890My problem with that pic was that she seemed a bit too long cat.
>>32467895He was smaller.around 5' 8"And it wasn't Napoleon complex.He was young.
>>32467925He was still almost 2 feet taller than us.
>>32467925He had facial hair, right?I didn't start growing a mustache at least until I was around 17, but there were guys in my middle school who already had heavy facial hair. It was weird.
>>32467911>>32467925can Ceru play the piano?
>>32467960They have fur, they're born with it.
>>32467960Well, they're completely covered in fur. Wouldn't be that hard for some of them to have longer facial hairs earlier.
>>32467828Of course ceru grows up to be the smallest one.
>>32467960They're probably born with Whiskers.
>>32467260Keep an eye out for GIANT CROCODILES
Our ELITE Rocket Seel:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRb7B9fPhfA&noredirect=1
That one bear of a man told us that we'd grow up to be tall like our mother.So hopefully we'll be deliciously tall when we grow up.
>>32468071They grow up so fast
>>32468103but will we be as hot?
>>32468214It's the sound it makes, right? Oh god.
>>32468071>20 Charm: the video
>>32468304There's a reason we get them autosuccesses, anon.
“Arr, Do sometin' t' help m' matey!” You yell to the Araraki as you run ahead alongside the water's edge “Marine, you're better at murky water, dive in and help, pull them to the surface, we'll shoot the monster!”“Aye, aye!” Marine dives as she was taught in her near two years at Cerulean gym, a flawless entry, and you recall that her fin will allow her to detect threats in the murk more easily.The Araraki encircles the pond, running over to the other side sunk down low and dangerous as her palm and claws glow green again, her mask taking on green hues as she gathers energy togetherYou extend your barrels, readying your guns as the amber nubs slide forward, ready to fire your icicle gun.The water splashes, obvious fighting within as great lillypads are shoved out of the way by the water's ripples. After a moment, the water breaks and Kurojo's thrown out, only to be followed by Marine uppercutting the monster right out of its home.You and the Araraki open fire as it's prone in the air. Icicles pelt its body and an explosion of green energy ravages its form. It falls like a rock, plopping back into the water and floating back to the surface.Kurojo hacks up water, and evacuates it from his nostrils, flustered and a bit weary, but not any worse for wear. He still holds his sword, refusing to drop it even despite the underwater struggle.The Araraki uses her staff to pull the poliwhirl out of the water and looks to the three of you quizzically.Well, at least you have your bait now...Just gotta hope that the wrong thing doesn't bite.> Hang the bait above the water and from a tree.> Drag the bait around through the waterways.> Leave it near the water's edge> Take it to the shoreline.
>>32468346>>32468375>(x)otherRig it up from a tree hanging over it, but include lots of slack before tying it down so we can repeatedly dip and splash it in the water, in a pulley-like kind of way.That should attract the fuck out of crocodiles.
>>32468346>> Leave it near the water's edgeits a croc right?
>>32468346>> Drag the bait around through the waterways.As some anons mentioned last thread, crocs like it when things move past them.
>>32468346> (Other)With alligators/crocodiles you're supposed to flop it around like it's injured. We need to rig up some way to move it at range.
>>32468346>>32468398Alright, this gets my vote.
Note:splashing also attracts the hell out of sharks.Watch for that
>>32468462Water isn't more than 5ft deep
>>32468492I am unaware of that stopping sharks.Just, you know, be aware is all.
Does this Araraki chick really know Energy Ball? If so, that's damn impressive. That's a strong move.
>>32468346seconding >>32468398, but maybe add an extra support near the ground, if there's any that's stable.why couldn't AoPH run yesterday...
>>32468398We do this mess--we do have rope, right?
>>32468628Prof made a mistake, then decided that it was fine since he hadn't finished making a map yet.
>>32468654You don't really need rope to rig something like that.
>>32468558If she's a Grass type and she's wielding an [s]Insect[/s] Glaive, I'm hoping she knows Absorb. With possible Mega Drain later.
inb4 the arakai are plant types infesting insect types.Just like the paras.
>>32468655I realize that, but the clutches of RL take me today.
>Passing up an opportunity to actually use Aquabatics to lure the Ordile in
>>32469161We've already got plenty of material for beast fics anon, and our writer is exhausted as-is.
>>32469161>>32469241We need to use aquabatics more.We should make a note of doing aquabatics in our spare time when we are between hunts, just-for-fun.
>>32469241Oh my god. Why do you do this to me.Now I totally want to read it too, damnit.
>>32469161>>32469290It's a little late to invest in Aquabatics now. No reason to fight in water if it cripples us on land. Prof just doesn't throw in any primarily underwater scenarios.It would be interesting if we could go toe-to-toe with a Plesioth or Tentacruel underwater, but it's not worth losing all our teammates(except Marine/Aqua). Maybe when we get an Atlantis type event.
>>32469307Cerulean's fear gives way, as the Ordile struggles to mount her. She realizes that for all its enthusiasm, it's as sexually inexperienced as she is. The paws gripping her sides, claws digging into her flesh, suddenly seem... endearing, and she fights the impulse to cast off her armor and guide the monster...
>>32469381What part of just for fun do you not get, anon?We like swimming already. Aquabatics seems like what you would be using to play around in the water.
>>32469381>>32469290If Prof actually had any plans with Aquabatics that would make it useful to us, it WOULD be best to show or offer the opportunity to see how useful it is in a downtime event.
>>32469307I'm the one who suggested birdbath as well and meylynx gangbangI will forever plague you with fic ideas you will never get to read
>>32469430sure, i guess. When do you think that will happen?We're still waiting on those Esper and Aura powercharts
The four of you waste no time in dragging the carcass over to some water that flows a bit more readily. Through a break in the misty trees, and the darkening horizon you can see the begginings of the moon reflecting onto the ocean in the far distance.Aside from being filled with monsters, this is another place that bears an almost otherworldly beauty as you witness the ocean through mist and these strange trees that stand upon their roots.With the Araraki's help, you manage to dangle the Poliwhirl's corpse in the water, hoisting it up a bit to let it plop into the water over and over again.It takes some time, and Marine handles it the most with her improved strength.“Oi, Araraki.” You address the lizard girl, getting a sidelong look from her bone-mask.“Yer doin' purdy aright. Who taught ye' t' hunt an' fish?”Kurojo pays some mind to the conversation, doing more to keep an eye out for your quarry and swatting away some of the insects that get a bit too curious.She lays her staff upon her lap as she squats upon her treeebranch, tail wrapped around to aid her balance. “We learn. Ah, We learn from Father. We learn Green Arts from family. Ah. mm...” She thinks to herself, trying to figure out the words,” We Green Seer. All Araraki not green. But We are.” She nods, and touches her glaive affectionately, holding it closer for some kind of comfort.“An wha' be a green seer? Be tha' power y' used thar?”She nods, seeming to think for a moment before turning back to you, still avoiding eye contact, “You... You from Glass City, yes?” Her voice is curious, though you can't see her eyes to tell, and her aura... It's odd now that you think of it. Like there's two of her in one body, and the auras swell and swirl into each other seamlessly and... blur her emotions.“Aye, I did say tha'.” You get a weird feeling.
“What think? Want home?” “Um. Aye...”“Ask too.” She points at Marine, as she's hoisting up the corpse again for another dunk.“Uhhh, okay.” You turn to your friend, “Hey Marine, Araraki wants to know if we want to go home.”Marine gives you a quizzical look as she drops the vine again, dunking the thing back into the water. “Well of course I...” she stops, thinking for a moment. “Yeah. I want to go home.” She doesn't really say it with much resolve.“Marine, you paused. You want to go back, right?”“Yeah, Ceru. I do, but...” She sighs, resorting to shaking the vine a bit. “I don't know, I've started thinking that it might not be so bad if we took our time. This is a real adventure and we don't have civic guard or civvies breathing down our necks. Isn't it nice to have a bit of freedom? I mean heck, we chose to come out here, right? To hunt this monster?”“Marine...”>What do you think Ceru?
>>32469608We've got a duty to return home. We're Rangers. And we have people we care for back home who think we're dead. We have a duty to them as well to come back as soon as possible.
>>32469608Honestly i wouldnt mind if we took our time either.
>>32469608>It's not that I don't understand you're feelings. It's exciting to be out here. There are so many sights to see and people to meet. Some of them have been pretty good friends to us, like Kurojo here.>But our friends back home are waiting for us. I won't keep them waiting. We have a responsibility to them and to the Dome, after all. It's not fair to them to let them continue thinking we're dead when it's in our ability to try as hard as we can to return.
>>32469665At the same time... We're out here, and we've got what seems like a path home. We're also doing things to earn status out here, even if it's in service of our first goal.We shouldn't laze about, but we can at least continue on doing what we've been doing and -experience- the world outside.
>>32469608We have duties and responsibilities. To the Dome. To our family. To our friends. To those already dead. We did not earn these powers through only our own merits.Also, this world isn't safe either. This peace between the three races is a cold war, and we could destroy that balance unintentionally. We could run away from it all, destroy our Indexes and just live as Hunters, but I don't want to run, not from my duty, not from my Mom's expectations, and most certainly not from my failures.
>>32469608Take our time but not too much time.We must learn all we can about this place in order to properly report it to the dome. Ceru likes being out here but feels a responsibility tot he Dome, this is how she would justify staying out here. Gathering all possible info in order to report everything to Boss.
>>32469608These pretty much>>32469665>>32469765>>32469768We can enjoy our time out here, but we need to do our utmost to get back to the Dome.
>>32469608"the lack of red tape is nice but I'm homesick too"
>>32469608Heres the thing. Ceru has always lived under a strict, oppressive society and was taught to kill before the age of 12. You honestly expect ANYONE to believe she isnt having the time of her life right now? All these new places to see, new perspectives to take in, all of this ADVENTURE!!!! around her, she probably at the LEAST isnt going to want to hurry back by any means.
>>32469796THIS, So much this.It makes the most sense because doing this actually helps the Dome. And Ceru gets to enjoy the world.
>>32469608So the basic idea seems to be that, yeah, we're out here. We can enjoy our time and learn more about the world outside the dome. But we shouldn't delay ourselves for that. We've got strong ties back home that demand we do our best to return to them.
>>32469608Honestly, I miss our friends.And I WORRY about our friends.Miss and worry.Whenever I start having fun with this, I then get to feeling guilty about not getting home faster, missing them, and worrying about them.
>>32469796thiswith a second of >>32469768and a touch of>>32469844
so Ceru's life goal should be something like an elite 4 gig.long outside dome missions with little redtape.adventure and exploring and doing our duty to the dome all at once.
>>32469608>>32469796I'll have to disagree on delaying our own journey for information gathering. We can learn as much as we can, but it shouldn't override our own travel's importance.It's not as if this isn't already what we're doing, after all. We should just carry on with what we've done.
Our friends can take care of themselves.
>>32469957She's in her mammy's footsteps, anon.We are shooting hard for that elite 4 slot.
>>32469973And you miss the point.
>>32469959Not delay too long. Just being sure to pick of everything we can. Not making journeys to each homeland and such.
>>32469973This>>32469986What you want is like buying an airplane ticket, missing the ride, and learning later on that the airplane crashed and that your close family and friends think you're dead. Then not bothering to call them to tell them you're alright for a few months because you thought it was more important to go on an impromptu vacation instead.
>>32469608I think we really enjoy being out here, but we really miss our friends and are EXTREMELY worried about Lilac
>>32470000I am fine with delays to improve our preparations for the journey. Anything 'extra' would be in our free time.
>>32470045I just... REALLY want to call mom and tell her we're not dead.God I hope the shipments to the arctic are infrequent enough that there won't be another one for like six months so she never finds out about any of this.
>>32470037It hasn't even bee 2 weeks.Also They're rangers they can handle themselves.
>>32470045Bruise's virginity in danger!!!
>>32470045Yeah she kind of was supposed to be in our legal care and she's dear to us
>>32470075You keep saying that, but you continue to miss the point.
>>32470078yes... but in danger from WHO!?
>>32470075Has it only been two weeks? Man I've lost track of time in our crazy adventure
>>32469608These get my support:>>32469665>>32469765>>32469768>>32469771
>>32470065I can second that. Just don't actually delay the trip or something like it to "gather info".
>>32470126Like eight different girls IIRC.
>>32470126Well, Janine probably won't make a move since she never bothered to visit him in the couple of years since the one time we grouped up for the test.Which leaves...Lilac and Kitty.
>>32470190It probably gonna be kitty. If Lilac goes for him she will leave people dead in her wake.
>>32470164I swear, those girls just want to Machoke his chicken
>>32469608mix of these>>32469796>>32470065
>>32470257Why delete?Even if that looked like samefagging
“Marine,” you stand up on the branch, and cross your arms, thinking of the right words to say here. How you feel about this whole mess.With a deep breath, and her attention, “I... Like it out here too, but we have a duty to the dome. It looks like we've got a way back, so we should work on it but...” You hug yourself a bit tighter,” It might take a while but...”You smile, “We can have fun till then. That fair?” You're trying to convince yourself as much as you are her.A tug between independence and the responsibility you have as a ranger... Kurojo says nothing, but you know that he listens. The Araraki watches on herself, seeming to try to relate to the expressions between you two rather than understanding the words.Marine's shaking of the bait ceases and she nods with her own little smile,” Yeah, I guess that's fair.”You turn back to the Araraki,” Aye, me an' me mate wan' t' go t' our home port.”The Araraki seems to consider your word with her odd aura and nod, saying nothing more.The vine goes taught.“It's here!” Kurojo shouts, jumping down with his blade drawn.“Take 'er alive mateys!” You shout in the common and then again in yours and Marine's tongue, sliding down the side of the tree with your claws, hopefully out of the Araraki's sight now that you think about it.And that's when you see it.The Poliwhirl wasn't bit in half, or even bitten into. It was eaten whole by a large heavily scaled monster with the red crests upon its back.It opens up its colossal jaw, and hisses as its eyes find you coming down the tree, yet that gets it to ignore Kurojo as it opens its jaws.You'd estimate this beast to be around eight and a half meters, not even including the tail. What in Arceus's name did you sign up to hunt?The thing lurches, sinking back into the water way, as you see Kurojo fall...
>The monster doesn't seem interested, it's retreating...> Tell Kurojo to forget about it and run!> Draw its ire, get it to fight!> (other)
>>32470433>> Draw its ire, get it to fight!Your not getting away now faggot.
>>32470433>> Draw its ire, get it to fight!FIGHT!
>>32470433>>[X] Draw its ire, get it to fight!
>>32470406Fuck, I knew I forgot something with my plan.We should have put a HOOK IN! Anyway, QUICK! Before it escapes! Grab the remains of that polywhirl rope, cut 'em free, and try to noose the crocodile before it gets too far.Gotta stop it! And maybe tie its mouth shut!
>>32470433https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Jmty_NiaXcDraw it's Ire.
>>32470433> Draw its ire, get it to fight!Kurojo's already going after it; we can't just not support him.also, attempt to bait it unto land somehow, maybe getting it to charge and dodging...
>>32470406>You'd estimate this beast to be around eight and a half meters, not even including the tail.That's what, the size of a Great Jaggi? He ain't so tough (about to get hipchecked halfway across the map)
>>32470406FERALIGATOR! which now seems even more obvious when I realize that Feraligator's Japanese name is Ordile
>>32470433>> Draw its ire, get it to fight!must save bird husbando
>>32470433> Draw its ire, get it to fight!Time to duel. We should try to get it out of the water, though. Tell Kurojo not to engage the beast while it's still submerged and to let us try and draw it out first.Hey Prof. Where's the tree with the Weepingbells?
We're gonna need to go full Icy Wind on this thing.Maximum Debuffs.
>>32470433> (other) Attack it while it's not paying attention!
>>32470433>>32470538Yeah, tell Kurojo to hold back first. Let the ones with ranged attacks (Ceru, Marine, and the Araraki) draw its attention first. Get it out of the water and into a place more advantageous for all of us to fight in.
>>32470561Specifically Araraki. Dat Type Advantage.
OPEN FIRE!!!!All Ranged attacks GO!.
>>32470433>>32470538This.As a reminder, this is Marine's current moveset:>Water gun>Vacuum wave>Force Palm>Mud Slap>BideAnd just general brawling attacks like punching.
>>32470743I don't know if marine gets icy wind.
>>32470743This is Marine's move set, anon. I...uh...I specifically said that it was Marine.
>>32470774>>32470759Nvm i am a goddamn retard that cant read.
>>32470592Yeah, work typing as much as we can.
>>32470972We should learn Freeze Dry.
>>32471017If we can, we really really should.
>>32471017we'd have to get a Cryogenal, Lapras, Delibird, or Vanilluxe graft
>>32470538It's back a ways, but you could lead the thing back there if you piss it off enough.
>>32471097Or for Ygg to tell us Bliger can use it, or that the skill system is just more open than that; hell, he said psybeam can open up in to tons of shit remoraid doesn't normally learn.
>>32471131Well, let's try to direct the fight in that direction so we can drop 'em on it.Hopefully it's not super lethal, and only moderately lethal.
>>32471131Thanks.>>32471211It would rather depend on whether or not an opportunity would rise up for us to get the croc away afterward. It's tempting to use the Weepingbells, but we need to think of what to do afterward. So unless the Araraki reveals some kind of ability to calm down the plants after they attack the Ordile to let us take it out or unless we've got reason to believe the Ordile can take all the Weepingbells out to let us approach it again...That or we could try and lead the Ordile into that area and try to goad the Weepingbells into shooting it for a bit before luring the Ordile out again to a safer area for our team.It just depends on the kind of possibilities that Prof can present to us during this fight.
>>32471211This is a multiplayer hunt. Let's try not to inconvenience our allies because we're trying to complete the subquest. It's bad enough we've got a longsword user on the team.
>>32471335There's no subquest. It's an environmental hazard.
“Kurojo, hold back and get away, we need to get it out of the water!” You yell and launch a short barrage of icicles. “Draw it out!” You shout up in common as the Araraki leaps from the branch, whipping her green energy down at the beast.With a loud snarl, the monster erupts from the water snapping up with its large jaws, at absolutely nothing. Kurojo lands on its head and gives it a quick cut before jumping off, letting the beast roar in anger and lash back only to be hit by another salvo courtesy of you and the Araraki.Wizening up, the monster blasts out a torrent of water to knock you out of the tree, forcing you to right your position midair as you fly back some. It was just water though.. You're okay.The monster lurches up onto land and begins to sprint at where it sees that you're going to fall-Only to have Marine come down with a fist, smashing the monster's head down into the ground, stunning it for a moment enough to give you each time to recover and reposition yourselves.Small monsters scatter from the colossal thing, fleeing in terror, running for their lives.The Ordile growls low as it shakes off Marine's blow. It hurt it, but it's still moving strong.It's still targeting you.The Araraki is jumping between the trees, clearly out of harm's way. The area's clear enough for you to use your 3PMG to stay mobile as you shoot this thing.Kurojo and Marine are a ways behind it, waiting for their openings.Marine eyes its tail, while Kurojo's eye is locked on its legs.
>>32471365I assumed the commenter was concerned about how lethal the Weepingbells were, because he wants to be able to capture the Ordile alive.
>The thing seems to be limbering itself up...> Tell them to lure it to a belltree.> Circle around it from the trees while pelting it with Icicles or another gun attack.> Draw back to let the others get their hits in.> (Other)>The monster seems to be a total of fifteen meters long including the tail. It seems rather sluggish, and its jaw is big enough to eat you in a single bite.>It has rather armored scales over the top of its body that allowed it to shrug off your icicles, though they still seem to ittitate it. The Araraki's Energy Ball seemed to bother it the most...
>>32468558Can she teach it to us?Our Omniguns are Energy Ball capable.
>>32471585>> Tell them to lure it to a belltree.location location location
>>32471581The mission IS to capture it alive.>>32471585>it's targeting usThat means WE are the bait now. Keep running and firing.As for the options presented, either of these works.> Draw back to let the others get their hits in.> Tell them to lure it to a belltree.
>>32471585> Circle around it from the trees while pelting it with Icicles or another gun attacktry the psybeams! ice isn't doing much at all
>>32471585Wait, why should they be the ones to try and lure it? It's US it's after, right? So wouldn't it be more efficient for us to try and lure it for the first option? Especially since we're probably the fastest?> Tell them to lure it to a belltree.
>we pick ice>every Arceus damn monster we fight resists ice
>>32471585Draw its attention with potshots, try to open up the best possible window for the Araraki to Energy Ball it.
>>32471674The mission is to just hunt it and bring it back. The side-mission is to bring it back alive.
>>32471730I am like 90% certain that this is specifically a capture mission.It was the baby one that we didn't have to take alive.
>>32471749You know how easy it is to look at the last thread, right?> Water Hunt: Ordile- Bonus, take it alive.> Land Hunt: Garura- Bonus, Get one with a child.
>>32471770Huh, would you look at that.Let's try to capture it anyway since, if I'm reading right, the bonus reward is more armor/weapon parts. Marine could use a loot.
>>32471097Bliger seems like it could use it.
“I'm going to lure it to a bell tree!” You shout twice as you leap away from the thing, activating the computer for your 3pmg as you fire off one of the harpoons into a tree to best away, in midair you unleash another flurry of shots, beginning earning you the monster's attention as it lunges at you from the water upon all fours at a much faster speed than you expected.The Araraki takes your lead and throws another small energy sphere at the thing's face, forcing it to reel and buckle. Despite the fact that the Araraki are from a desert, you find that her agility among the trees actually rivals a Kahkori's as she leaps from tree to tree, balancing with her tail and swinging upon a vine that's moved to help her where appropriate.Marine and Kurojo tail the creature as it crashes through brush and digs its feet through the wet and muddy land. It fires numerous and colossal blasts of water at you, only for you to dodge with a quick burst of the 3pmg's turbines.It's kind of scary actually now that the thing's distorted its face into a terrifying visage. A look back makes you buckle for a second until the Araraki delivers another energy ball into its head, hindering its action and liberating your heart.You look ahead and see the bell tree coming up, suddenly breaking off to the side and sweeping a blast of water to disturb them.Immediately, they lash out with dozens of razor sharp leaves, aiming initially for you.Your armor blocks some cuts to your body, yet you suffer a deep laceration through your upper right shoulder, the leave buried inside. Your arm trembles and you feel yourself slip a little, your vision distorting and turning red for a moment...> Resist it.(Tenacity)> Let it happen.
This'll sound stupid, but what does 3PMG stand for again?
>>32472174>Resist it.(Tenacity)We need to take it alive.
>>32472174> Let it happen.Ah, I see. Go for it.
>>32472174Alright. Before things get dumb.Does letting it happen mean we HAVE to kill the Ordile? Just clear this up now.
>>32472174I'm leaning towards > Let it happen., but I want to know about >>32472227 first.>>324721893 point maneuver gear
>>32472174> Resist it.(Tenacity)Can't go all kill soldier lone wolf on this one.Gotta TEAMWORK.Gotta cut down bellsprout!Gotta makes ure to cut off the tail, too, for extra carves!
>>32472252I don't think Rocket mode implies being a lone wolf. We actually stilled worked alongside Kurojo during the Nar-kage fight when Ceru slipped into Rocket mode.
>>32472174>>> Resist it.(Tenacity)IC choiceFor now
>>32472227>>32472250This.Is this purely a character defining "do you hate Rocket mode" thing or is it something more?
>>32472174> Let it happen.>>32472250Answer this, though, Prof.>>32472252No need to cut down the Weepingbell; the giant monster coming barreling in right now will get their attention quickly enough.
>>32472174> Resist it.(Tenacity)For now.
>>32472174> Let it happen.>>32472227Tentatively, anyway. If the answer to this question is yes, then I'm flipping my vote.
>>32472174>> Let it happen.Yay bloodshed. We will be fine so long as we dont id our allies as targets.
>>32472291>23:18:39>>32472320>23:19:39>For now.Either you're not even trying to hide it or the second guy is trying really hard to make it look like samefagging.
>>32472174>> Resist it.(Tenacity)Rocket Mode Ceru doesn't do very well with Capture missions or with teammates.
>>32472174>Resist it.(Tenacity)We have no reason to want to let it happen in or out of character.
>>32472346Coincidence I swear.
>>32472174>> Resist it.(Tenacity)
>>32472174how much tenacity is this going to cost
>>32472367It's still a capture mission asshole.You guys are retarded.
>>32472174> Let it happen.You might want to do a numbered vote for now just in case.>>32472381It's a roll, I think.>>32472363I could argue for an IC reason. Like it being a part of her conditioning. You know.
>>32472381No costs unless we fail the roll.
>>32472367>>32472273Yea but Ceru is still wary of Rocket mode after what happened. It's natural for her to be cautious of it for now. Plus we haven't even been hurt much at all.
>>32472347What? We've never had a capture mission with rocket mode. And she did well enough with Kurojo as a teammate during the nar-kage fight, so she isn't going to wheel around and attack her allies or something.Also consider that it's something that the Rockets created for being a ranger. Part of being a ranger is capture missions. I'm going to be really fucking surprised if Rocket mode makes Ceru completely tard out on this.
>>32472382It's a hunting mission. Live capture is a bonus. Rocket mode does not necessarily preclude killing, nor does it necessitate Ceru acting like a 'lone wolf', which we actually have evidence against.
>>32472174> Resist it.(Tenacity)Because we need this thing alive to get better swag.
>>32472393Yeah but after what happened Ceru is going to try to resist it.
>>32472174>> Let it happen.Lets kill the FUCK out of this Gator.
>>32472174> Resist it.(Tenacity)>>32472174Need it alive~
>>32472419We failed our last take-them-alive-mission immediately with rocket mode.
>>32472174>[X] Let it happen.
>>32472174>> Let it happen.Character break soon anons.
>>32472463Which was? The fight with Yellow?
>>32472463Yellow wasn't a take-them-alive-mission.
>>32472174Resist, not because i think e'll kill it but because it's the IC thing to do
>>32472174> Let it happen.I feel like fried alligator. How bout you guys?
>>32472174>Resist it.(Tenacity)You jackasses are intentionally choosing to warp her character into something awful. Just like how you ruined Bloodline Protector Quest.
>>32472497You know what would also be an IC thing to do?Letting it happen naturally, because it's been conditioned into her. Than taking proper control of it. Tame the beast, so to speak.
>>32472487>>32472495Our stated objective there was to beat his pride and beat him without killing him.(faaaailed)
>>32472174 Let it happen.>>32472515>Implying you can tame THAT.>>32472530Says WHO anon? The Green cat said a fight to the DEATH you know.
>>32472227>Does letting it happen mean we HAVE to kill the Ordile?Yes, unless she recovers from it sometime before that point.
>>32472515She was freaking out about how she killed someone. She's going to resist it.
>>32472174>>32472227Oh look, Prof. Things got dumb. And you STILL haven't answered the relevant question here.It's not like you have to be here for the entire voting process, but when a pertinent question comes in within the first few minutes...
>>32472174> Resist it.(Tenacity)
>>32472566Might wanna call a quote only vote.
>>32472564That was the stated intention vote at the outset of combat, anon.The goal ceru set.Unless you are legitimately implying rocket mode doesn't work on the operator or official rocket authority and instead defaults to listen-to-nearest-thing-that-resembles-a-father-figure.
>>32472566See, if you'd just answered that from the start things would have been much nicer...
>>32472174> Let it happen.
>>32472566Thank you so much for clearing that up.
>>32472593TIME FOR SAMFAGGING!!!!! EVERYONE GET YOUR PHONES READY!!!!!!!!
>>32472566There we FUCKING go. Finally. I mean, with a choice like this, I can't see why the hell you'd think it'd be a good idea to not answer the obvious question.
>>32472566Fuck it, no rocket mode then, changing my vote.
>>32472629I was gone and didn't see it until I got back.
>>32472610>implying everybody wasn't already samefaggingAnd anyway, even if it doesn't block samefagging 100%, it still resets the vote to clear away all the votes people made on faulty info.
>>32472645Like I said, I don't understand how you couldn't see the kind of discussion this choice would lead into. One anon did before anyone else.
>>32472635By my count, this tips it in favor of resisting.> Roll 1d20+4Rocket bonus cannot apply for this roll.DC16(It's not a major wound, so it's a fair bit lower than it would be)5 rolls.
Rolled 15 + 4>>32472704
Rolled 18 + 4>>32472704 Rollan
Rolled 17 + 4>>32472704elite?
Rolled 14 + 4>>32472704Weird, I thought we always got a +2 rocket bonus, and it just doubled in rocket mode.Whatever, probably some character thing.I hope I don't roll the worst rolls.
Rolled 12 + 4>>32472704Are we ever going to get a chance to actually control Rocket Mode or is it going to be a constant battle for all or nothing?
Rolled 5 + 4>>32472704Rolling.Question, would learning to control "Rocket mode" be viable later on?
Rolled 7 + 4>>32472704come on Ceru
Rolled 11 + 4>>32472704
>>32472726>>32472728>>32472729>>32472732>>32472736K so ELITE AS ALL FUCK!!
>>32472736Hopefully not. We've already got an "Evil mode" from using too many Evil moves at once.>>32472704Do you even have any plans for that, Prof? Like, at all?
>>32472726>>32472728>>32472729>>32472732>>32472736holy shit, we passed on all 5 rolls. THE DICE GODS ARE PLEASED! WE NEED A SACRIFICE TO THANK THEM!
>>32472736>>32472740>implying Rocket Mode will still be good if we learn to control itIt's only good because we're not in control and Ygg writes it out as exactly what needs to happen to win with a brutal efficiency that the majority of players lack.
>>32472726>>32472728>>32472729>>32472732>>32472736all of the 5 pass.so that's where HMQ's luck went 7 checks over 2 threads, 6 nat ones
>>32472770Our evil mode is our own thought though. Rocket Mode is brainwashing.
>>32472789I rolled one of those 1s. It was fucking bizarre.
>>32472782Nar-kage fight.All it does is apply a +2 to our Rocket Training rank.The scene with Yellow was a cinematic that Prof did because he saw how poorly the rolls were going with the new dice system he set up and, probably seeing how the fight wouldn't go the way he wanted it to be, used QM fiat to end it quickly.
>>32472792Er, no. Evil mode is also due to mental conditioning/brainwashing. Devon's is natural, but we were trained to think Evil by Kitty (who, likewise, received the same treatment).
>>32472792But not psychic brainwashing, like some conspiracy theorists have said.They think that Giovanni and Sylph trust Sabrina and her Espers.
>>32472792>>32472838That's why we're pseudo-Evil types. We have the potential to think that way, but we accessed it through training.The Smolders may be the same way.
>>32472838No we got Evil mode from Crytten. How did you miss that?
>>32472873From Crytten and then conditioned through rockets.
>>32472873See>>32472868Crytten is not Evil. It's only pseudo-Evil like Persian. We still had to be trained to access the mindset.
>>32472841Uhuh right, the scene when she tried to mindwipe us the second time says otherwise.
>>32472890So from Crytten.We just developed it in the Rockets.>>32472911But we got the Pseudo Evil from Crytten. Humans cannot go Pseudo Evil.
>>32472918Uh, do you understand what's being talked about, right?They're talking about Rocket Mode not being "psychic" brainwashing; just normal brainwashing.If you're talking about Sabrina being trusted; Giovanni didn't know about it and reprimanded her for tampering with his cadets' minds without his permission. So there's some political tension going on there.
Prof, ignore the sperging faggots and keep writing.
>>32472935Are you intentionally doing this?That's exactly what I told you right here>>32472838The idea is that it has to be trained/learned.
>>32472935>Humans cannot go Pseudo Evil.I dunno. Maybe some of them can, just like some can aura and some can medium and some can esper.I'd be none too surprised if some batshit crazy sociopathic serial killer motherfucker classed as pseudo evil. Hell, even full-blown evil typing wouldn't be that much of a stretch.
>>32472989>>32473003Yes. Of course. Clearly I needed you guys to tell me this. No, of course you guys don't look like douchebags. Yes, of course I love you two the most. You're my favorite players, you know.
>>32472999No it isn't.We would still have it even if we didn't train it. We just developed it more through training.Persian and Crytten are both Pseudo Evil.
>>32473016Dude fuck off and stop being stupid. And at LEAST try harder you imbecile.
>>32473013Well ALL humans can't. Ceru sure couldn't.
>>32473016trolling truly is a lost art
You grit your teeth and hold back the feeling, no... No... You want to stay in control. The wound is not bad. You're fine. A deep breath, and you push back that dizziness, that strange emptiness that's even unlike your evil techniques.If you were to compare your evil techniques... it'd be like a shadow versus an abyss.You land against a tree and adjust your position so that your standing along the side of the trunk.The razor leaves are soon redirected toward the Ordile, cutting into its armored hide, shredding its hide and face some. One nicks it in the eye and it thrashes against the tree, its fangs icing over as it stands up on its haunches and leap up from the ground to snap at the bells. Several vanish into its gnashing maw. As it swallows them, the others retract themselves further up into their tree to hide away, exiting the fight.Kurojo comes up from behind, slashing the thing's ankle as he slides by, forcing the thing to fall onto its side, water crashing out of the way as it writhes in pain, its underbelly exposed!> Shoot at the soft underside of its jaw.> Close in and use frost breath.> Pelt its underbelly with icicles!> (other)
>>32473059>> Pelt its underbelly with icicles!attack weakspot for massive damage etc
>>32473059> Shoot at the soft underside of its jaw.Probably good! As long as we shoot the jaw or underbelly!I wonder how much punishment this thing can take.Also it's flagrantly ice type, so once we start firing on armor again, swap to psibeam
>>32473038>>32473058>ReplyingGod fucking damnit, anon, you freaking chump. You're pretty much the most spastic guy in this thread right now. God. The fact that you two feel the need to try and fight a bit to preserve your dignity is pathetic.
>>32473059>> Shoot at the soft underside of its jaw.>>32473059DON'T KILL IT
>>32473059Get the Araraki to bind up it's mouth with vines or something. Crocodiles don't have strong muscles for opening their mouths, just closing them.
>>32473059> Shoot at the soft underside of its jaw.Let's try to hinder its ability to use its maw first.>>32473109It's Feraligatr, so it's only Water. It's still got a resistance to Ice, though.
>>32473059>>[X Pelt its underbelly with icicles!
>>32473109It's Water.It just use an Ice move.
>>32473109>Also it's flagrantly ice typeNo it isn't. Feraligater learns ice fang. Every single poke learns moves that aren't the same type that they are.
How are we going to transport this nearly 40ft monster, alive, back to the place for payment?Did we just get bamboozled?
>>32473185This was asked last thread when Prof made us leave the town without bringing anything.He told us to assume>Ferrines
>>32473185There's a reason marine automatically gets the loot if we get it back alive.And it's not that she doesn't have any loot yet.She -is- the strongest.
>>32473185tie it to the boat and drag it back
>>32473059>> (other)Is Psybeam effective?
>>32473230It's rank 1, but Icicle Gun is only rank 3.5 and that's getting reduced against this thing because NVE, so Psybeam might be better.
>>32473211Oh wait, no. He said Lynnians. Not Ferrines. Basically the same thing in context, anyway.Basically, he told us not to think too hard about it.
>>32473249That only applies to the roll, but the damage it would do (an icicle piercing the Ordile's soft, unarmored spots) are unaffected.
>>32473059>>32473249What about Crossroad Killing? Would the crit be enough to kill it?
>>32473299Don't have a blade long enough to get that deep.
>>32473299We don't want to kill it if we can help it, though. Plus, the Ordile is too meaty and armored; I feel like Crossroad Killing is something we would use against comparatively smaller targets or other humanoids. For the big ones like this, Frost Breath would be more useful in killing it.
>>32473328Oh, so we can use Crossroad Killing in combination with weapons?You once said that we could create a spear with our Ice Shard (this was early on when people were asking you how Hydropump would effect our Icicle Gun technique). Would a weapon like that, as temporary as it is, be usable for the technique?
>>32473365It would.But multiple Icicle guns as this point would be more effective against a thing that can eat you in a single bite.
>>32473397Oh I'm just asking out of curiosity/future shenanigans. I assume improving Ice Shard would also make an ice spear a more effective weapon too. No need to reply if that's right.
>>32473059I guess my vote is to concuss it with Vacuum wave alongside Marine and Kurojo.
I don't think we're at risk of killing it with this ice volley.We're just not that cool yet.Also, that other monster took acres of punishment and lived. The one on the boat.
You line your guns up and take the time to deliver long icicles into its underbelly, with that cut, it shouldn't be able to stand on its hind legs again. This could be your only chance.It writhes as the icicles hit home, lining its head, and forcing it to thrash back onto all fours again even harder, only to get hit by another energy ball courtesy of the Araraki from the treetops, stunning it only momentarily as its rage mounts.Digging in with its legs, it suddenly spins around, lashing out at everything nearby with its tail, catching Marine off-guard as she tried coming around along the side.She's sent flying for a tree, bracing herself for impact and slumping down due to injury.“Marine!” You yell, and the thing begins to lurch at her, though cringing and stopping at its own wounds, especially it seems, at the icicles stuck in its belly.The thing begins to back off, turning back for the water as Kurojo sweeps by it to cut at its tail. The blade stops short in a bone and the thing whips him back to, forcing him to land against a tree, one of his arms hanging limp, and his sword still stuck within the tail.“Broken!” Her shouts, to inform you of the state of his arm. He must've detected it too late.The Araraki swings from above throwing down another energy ball as she comes down upon the things's head with the blunt end of her staff, the weight and force of her fall adding to the punishing blow.The monster trembles and falls, driving the icicles further into its underbelly, courtesy of the ground beneath it.You circle around, surverying the state of the monster from its recently blind-side.And that's when you see it, blood pouring out from the thing's stomach, and flesh eroding away round its belly.
>>32473533It had its jaw ripped off and Prof confirmed last thread that slicing off the Ordile's tail wouldn't cause it to die from bleed out. So yeah, we're fine in terms of puncturing its softer parts.
>>32473548Why did you EAT THE WEEPINGBELLSIt was as I feared. The weepingbells were more lethal than the crocodile.Let's try to cut out the gut so it doesn't ruin the rest of the meat at least. We'll still get paid, just not get cool stuff.
>>32473548>detectedIs that supposed to be a pun, Prof? Or are you just using that word straight here?And heh. Weepingbell's Revenge. Sounds like a gastronomic disease.
>>32473590>>32473603Ah, unfortunate failure of bonus objectives.>>32473548Go recover marine before something happens to her.
>>32473618Not necessarily. If it's not dead in the next post, we could use our ice powers to try and freeze the affected portion of its stomach.The monster on the ship lost a third of its head and it still lived, so maybe if we can stop the acid from burning up more of the Ordile's insides, we can keep it alive for the journey home. We're close enough to the city anyway, since it didn't take us a day to get here.
>>32473693Ehhhh, allright, but I'm not going to get all optimistic.Instead, I'm going to start cursing weepingbells.
>>32473713They helped out quite a bit, though. And they sacrificed their lives for us. We must honor their deaths.
do we have antidotes?
>>32473739Yeah, Marine and Ceru still have their Antidotes and Paralyze Heals. I don't think Weepinbell's acidic fluids qualify as a poison, though.
>>32473786Really, the best thing for it would be diluting the fuck out of it, or neutralizing it. Freezing works too.
>>32473807>>32473693Ah, but like this anon said here, it matters on whether or not the Ordile is dead on arrival right now or if it's just going to fall over and suffer from its severe stomach ache.
It takes a moment for you to figure out what's happened- You must've punctured one of the bells inside!Oh crap, you were supposed to capture this thing alive! Well, for bonus rewards, but still!“Marine, are you okay?” You shout over to your friend, hearing a response from her, and seeing her get back up, a little dazed, but otherwise she looks okay.“I'm here Ceru!” She calls out, readying herself again. That Pewter training made her one tough cookie...“We need to freeze the acid! The Weepinbells are killing it from the inside!”You return only to see the Araraki get spooked and jump off of the Ordile's back, the beast thrashing about and dragging itself over to the water, even if only inching while in its agony. Seems like it's in the mood to get away now that it's seen that the four of you aren't quite worth it.Kurojo comes down, darting for the beast's tail, determined to get his sword back.> Tell Marine to assert her strength and flip it over so you can freeze the wound.> Tell Kurojo to let it get to the water, dilute the acid.> Let Kurojo deal the finishing blow.> (Other)
>>32473846> Tell Marine to assert her strength and flip it over so you can freeze the wound.
>>32473846>>[X] Tell Marine to assert her strength and flip it over so you can freeze the wound.
>>32473846>> Tell Kurojo to let it get to the water, dilute the acid.
>>32473846Uh, any of these options will let Kurojo take his sword back, right?> Tell Marine to assert her strength and flip it over so you can freeze the wound.Prof, are we able to recognize that the Araraki is using plant (Grass) type moves? Would it be within character to ask her if she knew how to paralyze or put the Ordile to sleep? We know enough about Celadon rangers to know that a good number of grass types are capable of that, right?
>>32473846>Well, for bonus rewards, but still!That's the attitude, Ceru. But still!>>32473895It MAY be possible to combine> Tell Marine to assert her strength and flip it over so you can freeze the wound.> Tell Kurojo to let it get to the water, dilute the acid.If the Araraki is capable of paralyzing or putting the Ordile to sleep. If she is, then let her do so. Then Ceru, Marine, and Kurojo can drag the Ordile's body into the water, dilute the acid, then freeze the wound over afterward.
>>32473846>> Tell Marine to assert her strength and flip it over so you can freeze the wound.>> Tell Kurojo to let it get to the water, dilute the acid.Either of these works, from an acid containment point of view.Well, freezing is significantly more damaging, but it doesn't require the acid burn most of the guts to get to dilusion stages.
>>32473949It's fine if the ice damages it a bit since I assume the more useful portions of the Ordile/Feraligatr are its armored hide, tail, and mouth (for the teeth and possibly skull). Freezing its belly might lower the quality of the meat for consumption, though.
>>32473846>> Tell Marine to assert her strength and flip it over so you can freeze the wound.Frost Breath is Perfect for this.
>>32473846>> Tell Marine to assert her strength and flip it over so you can freeze the wound.Frost Breath is the only thing that'll penetrate.
>>32473949>>32473984Organs are more important to us Dome rangers, isn't it? Since we're really the only ones who can use them to their full potential.
>>32474099Eh, we can't really do anything with 'em out in the field like this.Maybe if we knew some better medicine.
>>32474181And were better supplied, yeah. I assume dedicated capture teams would have equipment meant to help preserve a capture if it's not expected to survive.
“Marine, are you okay?” You shout over to your friend, hearing a response from her, and seeing her get back up, a little dazed, but otherwise she looks okay.“I'm here Ceru!” She calls out, readying herself again. That Pewter training made her one tough cookie...“We need to freeze the acid! The Weepinbells are killing it from the inside!”You return only to see the Araraki get spooked and jump off of the Ordile's back, the beast thrashing about and dragging itself over to the water, even if only inching while in its agony. Seems like it's in the mood to get away now that it's seen that the four of you aren't quite worth it.Kurojo comes down, darting for the beast's tail, determined to get his sword back.“Kurojo!” You call out to the Kahkori,” Get your sword back!” You turn to Marine,”Flip it over!”You steady your guns, aiming for its head and hitting it with your psybeam, cold sweat beating down from your brow as this day's starting to take its toll on you. It just needs to be a little distracted for them to work.You don't know what exactly what the Araraki's been using, but it works... She seems to understand though that the thing's nearing death.Your beams focused upon its brain makes it smash itself into a nearby mangrove tree, forcing a feww of its roots from the earth, with its weight and power.Marine dauntlessly slides under as Kurojo grabs his sword with once hand and slides the blade out, further severing the thick tail as it howls in pain.Marine shoves the thing up, and it's sent standing up, as she backs off to stay out of the way of the dangerous blood.Back on its haunches, its injured leg gives out and sends it falling backwards, as kurojo slides out of the way with his blade safely in hand.
>>32473846Think we could use psybeam to disrupt the poison?
With your 3pmg you spring to action and set yourself on the beasts underbelly even as it thrashes to get away. Taking a deep breath you breath frost in through its wound, causing it to writhe, but forcing the acid to stop its destructive function.The Araraki secures victory by knocking it in the head with one last energy ball, forcing its unconscioussness.>CAPTURE ACHIEVED!
>>32474496God. I've already forgotten how that even works, damnit. Something about confusing the anti-bodies?
>>32474500God.What an almost clusterfuck that was.Nice work, everyone. Anyone hurt?
>>32474500get it ready to take homewe can pat ourselves on the back when we bring the SOB in and get paid
>>32474531Kurojo broke his arm.
>>32474512>>32474500Ah well, doesn't matter now, we caught it. Hope no one wants to eat it
>>32474533That's a job for the Lynnians. We don't have to think about it.
>>32474500>Cue Lynnians who were just offscreen.
>>32474536So did Marine
>>32474536>>32474559Well then.Let's get to helping them as best as we can.Also, broken limbs means we earned a DAY OFF!
>>32474559Marine's arms are okay; she just got knocked up a bit.Ceru's also got a few razorleaves embedded in her unarmored arm (her right shoulder, to be exact).
>>32474668Oh yeah.I forgot about that.aAAAAAAAAHPoint still stands, days off all around. It's just marine might be the one practicing aquabatics while we rest and recuperate instead of vice versa.
>>32474692Marine and Ceru should be fine; their injuries will probably heal up in less than a day. So we're free to explore the town (and commission the building of our boat + paying off our debt to the Kahkori captain) while Kurojo heals up.
>>32474692The wound wasn't that bad, anon. It was pretty light damage; it was stated as much in the narrative.
>>32474732>>32474861Well, really I'm just looking for reasons to take a day off that don't make me feel guilty for dicking around.
The four of you return to town with a bunch of Lynnians conveniently hauling your kill. A few of them swatting away at some of the peskier little scavengers with literal sticks. Little furballs are brave.Back at the guild by nightfall, the four of you come in a bit beaten and hurt. Personally, your right upper arm's got a deep cut going through muscle tissue. It'll take a little time to heal, but you already have it wrapped up a bit. This is likely going to scar though, you can feel it.Some of the older hunters and other attendants among the guild come out to see your catch of Feraligatr, many of the Smolderan nodding, clearly impressed.“These kids did this?”“Impressive for rookies.”“I've seen a bigger one... once...”Are some of the more outstanding comments from the cats. Some of them around and hold out their fists to you and Marine, ignoring Kurojo and that Araraki.At first, you're a bit confused until one of them snarls, “Bump.”You bump your left fist against theirs due to the pain of your other arm. Metal clacks against the metals of their own armor begotten from many beasts, and you feel almost like a celebrity with all of them giving you some respect.“Blachne Diab,” You hear from a few of them in passing, and you begin to wonder what they mean by that. Not ever Kurojo knows, then again, this is out of his knowledge base...You're each given a set of little sticks, by a ferrine that purposely blows through each of them to let out certain notes. The sticks look like that currency that Kurojo showed before.You'll have to ask about it... There are a lot of strategic little dots on these, and Kurojo seems to be just about beamong after looking over them.
>>32475029Yes. You were rather obvious about it. It's like you forgot what the word subtlety was.
A Kahkori examines the kill in the outer yard of the guild, armored up in many lacquered mails, lacking only a helm and carrying a sword even longer than Kurojo's, as long as this Kahkori is tall actually.“Fine capture, though it is hurt badly. We will be able to make much armor and line fishing boats with the hide. There will be enough left over for a set of armor, and a weapon made from the jawbone if you chose to pay.”He gives an eye to the Araraki amongst you, “It is also possible to let the filth have a bone if it wishes.”Your tail bristles, yet then his eye specifically falls onto Marine, “And what exactly are you?”> How will you answer for her?
>>32475071She's my friend!Also the one who punched that thing upside down so we could frost its guts.
>>32475049>Kurojo seems to be just about beamong after looking over themBeamong? Another mistake?>>32475071She's a hunter and my matey, sir, and we'd be appreciatin' it mightily if you don't pry further than that.
>>32475049We need to figure out how much these sticks are. Before we gamble again.
>>32475114>Beamong? Another mistake?Pretty sure it was supposed to be "beaming"
>>32475071>>32475114Oh, and ask what kind of weapon could be made from the jawbone.Maybe an over-sized knuckle-duster for Marine? We need to pimp her out.
>>32475071>>32475130We'd have to pay for a weapon. And probably pay for a bone.But we get a free armor, so that goes to marine. Whether or not we pay for the other two things depends on what these sticks mean.
>>32475164The bone for the Araraki is free; the Kahkori doesn't seem to mind if the Araraki gets a bone or not.On the weapon + armor bit; armor is always good to have and Marine wouldn't need all that much of it; just some leggings and maybe some back protection. Her squirtle shells afford her torso and arms natural protection. And let's see what kind of weapon we could get for her and decide from there whether or not it'd be worth spending money over.
Armor and a knuckle duster for Marine.And the bone for the Araraki
>>32475071Y'know mentioning officials, im surprised that we havent caught any of the local Kahkori Burghers attentions, what with us being THIS DIFFERENT everywhere.Actually whom even the fuck governs this city?
>>32475373You still pass for a smolder, but yeah, it just hasn't gotten to the leader yet.
>>32475414we're some kind of reverso smolder.Traveling with what appears to be an intelligent fighting turtle person.
>>32475414Are female smolders all huge like the males are or is there some smaller-ness going on?
>>32475414AH well then,cant WAIT for that meeting. And also probably Kahkori history dump as well.
>>32475455They're far more lithe, but still not lacking in strength. They bear much better proportions.No tits though. No tits in Araraki either. Though Kahkori have busts hidden in their feathers.
>>32475528I like the smolders more now.
>>32475528>Ok thank the gods you made them like actual fucking lizards, and not fap bait.
>>32475528>the cats are titless>the lizards are titless>the birds have titsI know that they all descended from people, but I'm still somewhat confused.
>>32475572their ancestors were flat obviously
>>32475589>>32475572They we're Asians while the birds were Australians.
>>32475572Disappeared over time, I guess, when they adapted/mutated due to their environment.
>>32475598And Space Virus.
>>32475616I never thought that I'd be hearing "space virus" as the explanation for weird tits and think to myself "alright, seems reasonable".
>Ygg ensuring correct anatomy in the fics
“She be me frien' an' a hunter. Ah'll ask y' not pry o'ermuch.” You cross your arms and defer to Kurojo.“Marine, they could get you some armor if we want to pay. It'd help protect you at least in the future. I worry about your back sometimes.”Marine inclines her head,” Yeah, I guess I'll get that taken care of, she scratches at her orange-ish hair with a chuckle.“We can get a weapon too, anything you want?”“Um... Well, I've got my shells but they're not really good on monsters this big...” She thinks to herself for a moment, “Brock used to use a club sometimes, I think I'll do that.”“They're willing to let us use the jawbone.”“Ooo! Keep a tooth in it and that sounds awesome!”Kurojo relays that and gets a quote from the Kahkori quartermaster even as he keeps an eye on Marine.There's no reaction from the Araraki over the whole hunt's payout, she just keeps to herself and tucks the sticks inside of her leather robes.The quartermaster takes some of the sticks, and writes down an order on some parchment, “It will be ready in a few days. See your sponsor to receive your official initiation into the guild.”With his departure, you find the Vi-Smohkan within the lit halls of the guild, the other residing hunters watching on in silence as the monstrous “man” lets coals burn, with a few metal sticks jutting out from the controlled fire.“Impressive that you managed to return, and not even with a quarry to cop out of the task presented.” The Smolder eyes over each of you with his good one, acknowledging all of you, despite whatever prejudice he might have. Now is not the time for it.
The crowd around here are not just Smolders, but all of the races, though still segregated. Some look on with interest, others incredulous at the four of you working together, yet none dare speak up to disturn the Vi-Smohkan during what must be a wholely sacred ritual to them.“It is my honor to grant you the titles of Hunter, before the eyes of your new peers. To hunt and die for the glory of the emperor. By my name, Akabaron, Veteran Hunter of Five stars, and Vi-Smokhan of Cruorcible, you shall receive the mark, and be acknowledged after this day.He turns and grabs the metal stick from the coals with his bare hands, showing a brand for the entire room to see. “If for any reason one should doubt the authenticity of this brand, a hunter will speak for their peer. Any that you do not recognize, or wear the brand as cowards however shall have the mark torn from their bodies.”“This is our way, and it shall be done.” He lifts the brand higher, and you swallow, realizing what's about to happen.Akabaron lowers the brand and looks at each of you. “Present where you shall wear your mark of the guild, and I shall mark it thus.”> What do you present?
>>32475818>and not even with a quarry to cop out of the task presentedHuh? What does this mean?>>32475835Our right shoulder, perhaps? To cover up the scarring. And because it'd be badass BECAUSE of the scarring.
>>32475835one of our shoulderssome body part that can't get hacked off
>>32475835>emperorThis was mentioned before, I remember. All the races are led by one emperor, huh?
>>32475835Breastbone?Either that or a shoulder.
>>32475851eh, shoulderscar works.Gonna be hard to explain this one to ol' ma. We HAD to get the tat, all our friends were doing it!
>>32475908Yeah the birds rules these isles as the local hegemon. Which is why im kinda shocked we have either A) Been brought in for questioning by said Imperial Authorities.orB) Been offered a job by them.
>>32475835D-do we have to?
>>32475960err havent rather
>>32475835A shoulder seems the most practical.
>>32475948It's fine. Boss would probably let us keep it anyway, if he thought it'd be useful to have us as an intermediate to hunter races.I'm more worried about where Marine will get her mark. Her shoulders, forearms, and chest are covered up by shells.>>32475835Maybe a mark right on top of her exposed navel, eh? Wink.
>>32475835The non-injured shoulder.High up on the arm like.By the way, do they respect showing the mark off, or does it not matter to them where it is? For example, if we put it on our forehead, would that please them more than on our stomach.
>>32475835> What do you present?Make it a tramp stamp
Seems most people say shoulder.Now: Scar shoulder or non scar shoulder?I say the scar one.
Later, it turns out we can use hydration and rest to heal burn scars.
>>32476021non scarDon't want the symbol to be marred. I feel like it's disrespectful somehow.
>>32476021Aye, decide this.
>>32476048Wheras I think it's cool and sentimental over our first hunt.Oh well!
>>32476057Will the scar shoulder fuck it up somehow?
>>32475835Non-Scar shoulder plz.Scar would just fuck up the brand.
>>32476021On the scar.>>32476062This is pretty much my reasoning. Aside from the fact that it'd look cool to have the scars behind the symbol, it'd be a good reminder of our first 'official' hunt for the guild.
>>32476021Scar shoulder sounds good to me.
>>32476021Scar shoulder, then.>>32476057Prof, would the brand be "fucked up" by the scar? Or would it just be in the back? Because I'm assuming that it doesn't really matter since this brand is being burned into our skin; I don't think there are any color pigments that would be fucked up.Also, we're on page 10. So, you know. If you're gonna answer this question, make it quick.
>>32476070>>32476057Can we ask the guy if the scar would mess up the brand, and if not go with it, and if so go with opposite shoulder?Really, it's up to them to decide what is and is not offensive to their mark.
>>32476066>>32476077>>32476078Asking about whether it would mess it up or be seen poorly seems like something we should do first.
>>32476021I don't think they'd be offended if the mark got scarred. I mean. Shit happens in battle.
>>32476089Wait WHAT!?!?! How the fuck did we get to ten on this small number of quest posts?
>>32476124We hit max posts fairly quickly, and Ygg takes his time writing.
Man this is going to hurt like a BITCH.
>>32476062I mean, I guess it can be near the wound, but honestly, I feel like it would fuck up the brand to have it ON the thing.. Besides, having one shoulder fucked during the hunt, and the other one fucked as a reward for the hunt sounds equally as sentimental.>>32476089Depends on how it looks for me. I want the symbol to be clear and pristine, unmarred. If it looks like the scar isn't part of it, and is just an accent, that's fine, but having it look like part of the design is unacceptable. Pic related.
>>32476131Actually nvm. I went back and counted. Yeah we have 12 quest updates for this thread. Why does it feel like we have done nothing then?
>>32476152Fight scenes notoriously eat up quest time.
>>32476152Uh, not really? Felt like quite a bit happened. It might just be your sense of anticipation messing with your head, since Prof switched AoPH's schedule.
>>32476167No actually it just feels like more should have happened this thread. Or maybe i just REALLY WANT more to happen. IDK, i was kinda hoping to get an offer from the city leadership after bringing this bitch in for the guild. Also MAP WHERE DRAN?!?!?
>>32476149>just realized I have autism or ocd or something because I actually really care about the aesthetic virtue of our brand.Of all the things I could have strong feelings over, didn't expect it to be this.
>>32476209Hey man its a worse tatoo. We are literally gonna have this for the REST OF OUR LIVES. No lazer surgery can get rid of it. This is important.
>>32476209>>32476225redraw this>>32476149but with a much thicker or thinner line for the scar than for the burn.So I can see what it looks like
>>32476209>>32476225The appearance is abstract as long as you allow it to remain so; it looks as good as you want it too.
>>32476225If we get a staryu gem eventually, it will go away.
>>32476225In real life, I would much rather have a brand than a tatoo. I don't know, a brand seems... clean to me. A tatoo seems like it just taints a part of your body with unnaturalness.>>32476261You can whip it up yourself in paint in like 10 seconds, you don't have to be a drawfag to make some basic example lines.
>>32476295I'm going to imagine it then. And in my imagination, a much thinner line is visually distinct enough to not marr a pattern.
>>32476282Which could be as much of a problem as a benefit.And more implants seem unlikely, as you start to have higher and higher rejection rates as you grow unless you've basically turned yourself into a patchwork already.
>>32476308Rejection rates don't increase the more you have, but the older you get.Although I guess, in cases like Koga, if you're just removing and implanting the same kind of organ, it's pretty safe.
>>32476308It still mildly bothers mah autism that you have multiple pokes inside of you with no negative consequences till you hit like 5.
>>32476335I wonder if Koga ever carries a set of preserved poison sacs with him outside the Dome and cuts open his own body to place them inside when he needs a quick recharge.
>>32475835Third from the bottom now, Prof. Just so that you know.Ready to archive this entire thread as soon as you post.
>>32476349A hypo injection would be a lot simpler.
>>32476368Archive it now. Dran takes WAYYYY to long to write.
>>32476368Okay. I stand corrected. Second from the bottom.
2nd from the bottom..
>>32476382I just did. Waiting to archive it again after he posts the last update.
>>32476389This is the SECOND time this has ever happened, you know? That time, though, we were at the absolute bottom.
Marine is branded first, she's a bit hesitant, and quickly realizes that her armor will interfere and so- she offers her forehead, wincing a little as the hot stick comes forward. “Tell her to clench her teeth.”You relay the message to Marine and she nods, bracing herself for contact as the brand slowly presses into her skin with a hiss.Her fists tremble, and she tries not to cry, mostly succeeding until it's finally pulled away, giving in at the relief. Her forehead sizzles and the brand sets in with red flesh that rapidly turns white.“She did well.”Marine comes away, wiping back her tears so that the other hunters don't see. “What is her name?” The monster-man asks. And Kurojo looks between you and her, repeating the question.“Call me...” Marine pauses, “Ultramarine.”“Ultramarine!” Akabaron roars and the guild applauses.You give Marine a pat on the shoulder and she steps back. Kurojo steps up next and presents his wrist, the part still partially marred by the acid from a few days ago. “If I lose this arm, I may no longer be a hunter. It is just.”“Hold it together, Kahkori,” The Vi-Smohkan whispers with some disdain, as he sets the brand against Kurojo's plumage, pressing it in firmly to ensure the mark stays.The bird braces himself against the pain, and nearly drops to one knee as he keeps his arm from moving.The brand is removed and his own trial is done.“Your name, bird.”“Call me Jojo.” The Kahkori pants.“Jojo!” The beast roars, another round.
>>32476437>“Ultramarine!” Akabaron roars and the guild applauses.God DAMN, Marine.
“Next.” Akabaron looks to you and the Araraki now.You step forward, removing the upper part of your armguard to expose your uninjured shoulder,” Bes' keep it safe, aye?”“Aye,” Akabaron chuckles. “Don't bite your tongue.”You clench your teeth in preparation for the brand and feel it sting against your flash, forcing a squirm out of you. The presence of your innate fat lessens the pain some, but you can still feel the heat eating away at your flesh, making you tremble and struggle not to wine. As you can smell the fur burning away and flesh destroyed by the mark.Tears escape your eyes when he pulls aware, and he spits fire at the brand now,”It's gotten cold, hold still.”He presses once more in the exact same place, to ensure the brand's application.An agonizing moment later, the pain begins to come on as the burn begins its own way of festering."And what is your name?" Akabaron asks.You face the guild, seeing all of them wait for your answer...>[End Thread]
>>32476437>“Call me...” Marine pauses, “Ultramarine.”What is it with you and making characters I like name themselves stupid cringey shit?
I don't think we have time to pick Ceru gang name...
>>32476437Oh god smurfs.
>>32476437When did Kurojo get hurt by acid?
>name ideasSabertoothTomMittensCougarTigressLion King 2Sex KittenDuke of New YorkCool CatNermal
>>32476453>”It's gotten cold, hold still.”Ceruuuuuu!
>>32476453Uh, counting the votes, it was voted to place the mark over the scarred side.
>picking a namewell this certainly won't lead to a shitstorm!
>>32476492We were asking whether that would mess it up or be seen as offensive, I guess prof skipped the dialogue of that and just had us choose the clear shoulder because of how close to the end we were.
>>32476514Yeah... maybe Prof can suggest what name he has in mind, and we can vote whether or not that works for us?
>>32476486>No Ice Queen.That's the defacto, you know? Or that thing that the Smolderans were calling you...
>>32476453Please tell me we're just going with 'Ceru'. Kurojo went with Jojo and I'd rather not pull an Ultramarine on this.Or even worse, a Hot Rod...
>>32476533yeah, Ice Queen is good
>>32476453To be clear, we will only use the new name in relation to the guild, right?
>>32476437...Seriously, your forehead Marine?I mean I know you're already part Wartortle/Mudkip, but still.
>>32476541no it will be our new name foreverCerulean of Cerulean is dead and gone
>>32476437Mariiine, you should have just got your shin branded.The forehead is a BAD IDEA
>>32476546>Blachne DiabI'm going to go ahead and guess that that means "white bitch".
>>32476541Its the same shit as in overhuman when we joined the Followers. Dran has been wanting to write this for a while i can tell.>>32476533MAP WHERE DRAN!?!?!?!
>>32476437There's no way she's not going to be ashamed of that once she grows up.
>>32476535Numb Rodit's actually nearly as fitting, considering it's our 'Hunter' name
Why not just Cerulean? Or Ceru?
>>32476546No idea what that means. White Death, maybe?
>>32476533What were they calling us? Baby Smolder?>>32476549Maybe it's covered by her hair and she just has to brush it aside to show it.
>>32476570I think it's supposed to be symbolic, somehow?
>>32476453Aw, so putting it on the scarred shoulder would have messed it up after all?Oh well.
>>32476546>Diab>>32476571White Devillike nanoha
White Death or Ice Queen?
>>32476591Is it in Spanish or French? i cant tell.
>>32476549Yeah, I doubt marine's choice too.I would have gone for like, the ankle.
>>32476592That's an epithet, not a name.What about calling ourselves Blue. You know. Since Red is on Silver Peak.
>>32476594According to google translate, it's nothing.
We'd probably be seen as too confident if we going with White Death or Ice Queen. Those are ironic nicknames, anyways.Just go with Cerulean. Our friends call us Ceru, but the guild will respectfully call us Cerulean.
>>32476602Blue is already taken by Lilac's honedge.
>>32476605>Google translate.It SOUNDS like Spanish to me.
Glacio?Nox Glacies? Means Deadly Ice
>>32476607that's boringyou're boring
>>32476607And those are the kinds of nicknames Elite 4 or, possibly, Gym Leaders would have.Remember, people. Ceru is modest.
>>32476533So what does the brand actually look like?
>>32476602White, Ivory, or Snow would also work, but only the Kahkori would understand.>>32476594>>32476605I jumbled the letters around.Yes, it's "White Devil."
>>32476629Alright then.Our gang name is now White.
>>32476629WHat the language you are mixing up to create this? Spanish?
>>32476629white devil is good, they call us that anywayme likely a good 0079 reference
>>32476629Well, let's just go with that then.
>>32476640Single word thing would be good.I prefer cerulean, but white would be acceptable.
>>32476629>>32476645White Devil is too long, but White is nice and short. Let's go with it.And now I wonder why they called us White Devil.
>>32476629Honestly, I like 'Snow' better than most of the other options.Ice Queen is cool, but I just don't really see Ceru deciding to call herself that out of the blue. Maybe if you'd included even one scene of her missing Devon or how he called her that, but it seems that her memories of the name are negative at worst and toleration at best.
Albus Frigus is White Death with the "Death" also meaning to freeze.
>>32476660>We spit water, anthema to them. >We are white.Anymore questions?
>>32476660white devil is cool and they all call us that anyway.it can be white for short
>>32476663White is better, though, when you consider that the setting is mainly based on Pokemon.You just GOTTA have a color name. We're from fucking Kanto, man.
Map.>>32476626I'll draw it up, since that'd be simple enough.
