After my newfound friends -I've decided they are friends- and I encountered a rock monster it turned out it -his- mistress was just like us a student here, though she's way cooler and can even cast spells already. I try not to feel jealous watching her explain magic to the slightly stand-offish former noble girl called Eriadne, but it's just so frustrating...Deciding to distract myself I look into the book before me again."Should a Witch need to defend herself with weapons forged by mortal hands it must only be in the most dire of circumstances". Huh. I suppose that's what the Dragon Knights do. Still, it would be nice to spar against someone… Admonishing myself to focus, I read on."Therefore, it is--" "What does 'paramount' mean?" I ask, to no-one in particular."Very important, anyone knows that". I shoot Evangelyne a look which she ignores. Just because she's clever shouldn't mean she gets to show off, that's just not right."--to master the wand and stave, as has been the custom since time immemorial". I resist the urge to ask after that one. Hmm. Probably means "since long ago", anyway.I move onto a small leatherbound black book with a golden triangle with an eye at each corner on the cover.1/2
>>33186898"[FORCE]: A Compendium".The first page depicts the drawing of an up-turned palm. Each finger has a small arrow pointing to a symbol, all different from each other. Strange, but maybe it will become clearer leater.As I turn the next page, a small leaf of paper falls out. On it is a drawing in the same style as the book. Maybe a student copied it for class. Oh whatever, might as well. I hold up my palm, then make a circle with my index and thumb. What was the next step? Oh. One small turn, make a fist and speak."Fires of eternity, flames everlasting, bestow upon this humble child the gift of your ra--"Something wells up deep within me, a living, breathing, changing power, the shock hitting me so hard I jump up from my seat and almost fall before catching myself. THankfully this part of the library has a thick carpet so the THUNK of my falling chair doesn't echo too loudly.2/?
Awright, 'tis the witching hour!
Man we DUMB son.
>>33187028We're a little girl from the lower classes.
>>33186898Fuck that, son! We'll be a Guard Witch, or Witch Guard. Let's just make a Edgewand or Staffblade. Why not have both?
>>33187028We're a 12 year old commoner, it's to be expected
>>33187089>StaffbladeSo, a spear?
>>33187089Let's sneak in training lessons with the sorcs. They come to us, we could come to them.
>>33187118Wow, no!It's like a staff with magic and shit but on the other end it has the blade of a sword, not some toothpick! Jeez.
>>33186898>forgetting to put Quest in the subject>twiceDamnit Hex
>>33187118From bone. Bone isn't forged by mortal hands and is sufficiently witchy to pass.
>>33187144Ah, a naginata.
>>33187028It's ignorance, not stupidity. Granted, book learning tends to enhance intelligence and bring out the most in a child, but it's entirely possible to be very intelligent without much vocabulary or general learning.Also, twelve years old (I think?)
>>33187203I'll cut you!
>>33187203It's a feminine weapon it could work. Unless the culture forbids women to have weapons full stop.
>>33187232We're a Witch. Witches are beyond such petty mortal things.At least I hope so. Some sort of martial witch tickles my fancy.
>>33187232Apparently it's a fairly egalitarian society in that regard, we recalled wanting to be a guardswoman and seem to have considered it a very real possibility.>>33186898> Weaponlore +1That's got to have come from somewhere.
>>33187089Quarterstaff isn't cool enough?
>>33187232But wouldn't we need to take exotic weapon proficiency for naginata?
>>33187332Are we proficient in any weapons yet?Is weaponlore weapon use? or crafting?
>>33187314No, that's super uncool. You can't even cut things with it. What are you, a monk? Are you a bald, old monk?
>>33187144Wait, I've got this: a gunblade!
>>33187365I think you mean to say: a WandbladeA blade that casts spells on people you hit
>>33187332This stat block looks like some queer spawn of Exalted and Fantasy Craft so who knows. Would be worth it anyway.
>>33187385Why not one of those staves that have a sword inside that can be drawn out?
>>33187385A sword that has a wand as a hilt.
>>33187350> Monks>not coolSKR pls.
>>33187396Why not have 2 of them?Dual, wand-shortswords go!
>>33187395>>33187396>dat swordcane mindSuggestion: We get a stave in place of a wand if that's mechanically allowed and ask Evangelyne to craft it into a sword cane.
>>33187403Little girl kung fu monk mite b cool in some other setting. Real combat witches use swords! >>33187410I like the way you think.
Is OP ded?
>>33187410Nah, Hexer will nerf that paragon path in the errata...Which reminds me, do we need to perform the ancient dance of Hexer Summoning again?
>>33187436Let's use a duelling sabre. By the way, I wonder what Eriadne and Helena have as Totem animals.
>>33187434>>33187436Fuck, FUCK!I got this!Two short swords that have sheaths that look like wooden canes.They can be locked together to be a staff, or split into two sticks, escrima style, or can both be drawn from stick-sheath to allow for dual sword use.And they're wands.
>>33187482And they're on FIRE!
>>33187478Eri probably Bat? She's creepy enough to fit.
>>33187482Oh my goooodddd

>>33187699QM is a bit airheaded.
Heart thumping, ears ringing I just stand there, hands on the smooth wood to keep myself from just keeling over. If I ever saw something this beautiful yet horrifying the memory must be gone from my head. I shake, and only a few heartbeats later realize that no, it's not I that is shaking, it's Helena standing on the chair beside me using her entire weight to make me sway from side to side.Huh. How long has she been doing that? I croak something that doesn't even make sense to me, but she stops. I try to remember how to move and find it difficult, my whole body feeling more like a puppet than something belonging to me. Somehow, I manage to turn and pick up the chair, then sit down before realizing that everyone else at the table is staring at me too."...don't… don't EVER do that again". The smooth surface of Eriadne's voice is showing cracks, and though she tries to keep her face composed the corners of her eyes are twitching slightly. Weird what you notice sometimes.Helena seems too shocked for words and Evangelyne… she's grinning. Like a girl who just won the price at the town fair, like a conspirator who found her equal, a joy that I, right now, simply can't place. "Whud ah yu laffing about?" Goddess, but my voice must sound like the worst drunk's, all slurred and awkward.She just shakes her head, still grinning from ear to ear."Didn't know you had it in you", she finally says, voice strained and barely under control."You see, most girls do it the first time after being shown -and trust me it hurts a lot less when you know what you're doing- but goddess, you have TALENT!". The last word is punctuated with an entirely unladylike slap of her open palm against the table.1/2
Just then, the bell rings. "Can you walk?" Eriadne sounds genuinely concerned though for some reason looks away while asking though she offers her arm. "I'm fine". Refuse her. "Barely". Take her arm. "No, but I'll have to". Refuse her. "Probably, but I'd rather not take chances". Take her arm. OtherThinking, I see the fateful paper still lying there. Take it. Nobody will claim it and I GOT to try again. Leave it. This thing is nothing but trouble. Other
>>33188021>[x] "Probably, but I'd rather not take chances". Take her arm.Eriadne a cute>[x] Take it. Nobody will claim it and I GOT to try again.
>>33188021> "Probably, but I'd rather not take chances". Take her arm.> Leave it. This thing is nothing but trouble.

>>33188021 "Probably, but I'd rather not take chances". Take her arm. Take it. Nobody will claim it and I GOT to try again.
>>33188021>[X] "Barely". Take her arm.>[X] TAKE IT TAKE IT TAKE IT
Helena is adorable and EriadneXMaria is too cute.Evangeline a shit.
>>33188005> You see, most girls do it the first time after being shown -and trust me it hurts a lot less when you know what you're doing- but goddess, you have TALENT!". Delicious innuendo our tween brain can't handle.
>>33188021>[x] "Probably, but I'd rather not take chances". Take her arm.>[x] Take it. Nobody will claim it and I GOT to try again.
>>33188110I like them all equally, but Maria's first.
>>33188113Has Maria been yet told about bees and flowers?
>>33188110Why do you hate SCIENCE?
>>33188137She knows what flirting is. Conceptually.
>>33188021>[x] "Probably, but I'd rather not take chances". Take her arm.>[x] Take it. Nobody will claim it and I GOT to try again.>[x]Other: No, really, what happened?I-it's not like I want to help yo o-or anything! Hmph! Eriadne, you tsun tsun.
>>33188021>[x] "Barely". Take her arm.>[x] Take it. Nobody will claim it and I GOT to try again.
>>33188136But Maria is us. Isn't that a bit narcissistic even for 4chan?
>>33188178>>33188021>[x]Other: No, really, what happened?Yeah, we need to know what we did or almost did.
>>33188233Shut your whore mouth right this instant.
>>33188234Forces is battle magic so at least OOC I assume we almost burned the house down.
>>33188233It can't be helped anonMaria is just too good
>>33188265Yeah, we were about to summon some flame.
>>33188233She's not, as little as the HQ characters are. We're just directing her actions, she's her own person.
>>33188295> Fires of eternity, flames everlasting, bestow upon this humble child the gift of your ra--"Some pretty potent flame.
I'm a little bit sad this doesn't seem to work on the same magic system as Hexer Quest.>>33188021 Barely. Take her arm.Let's lean on her a bit for extra moe factor. Take it. Nobody will claim it and I GOT to try again.>>33188234Thirded.
>>33188233Maria is just that good. Narcissus really did know best route.
>>33188021soo uh you writing yet?
>>33188463Okay so what do anons here like about her so much?
>>33188584Well, you know, stuff.And things.And other things.
>>33188584So far she just seems like the person you'd settle down with.
>>33188665This. She isn't waifu material, she is wife material.>>33188504We were promised an update an hour. So far he's kept to that except once.
> counted, closing and writing> Zhe floor is open for questions
>>33188863What did we do? What did we doooooooo?!Also is there a magic way of enhancing the body? You know, for MAGICAL SWORDWITCH MARIA action?
>>33188584She feels like an actual person, not just a character. A very cute person.She messes up, but it doesn't hold her back, and while she's kind of rough when put next to Eriadne, she's an all-around nice girl and her awkward bits add to her charm. I want to pat her on her head.
>>33188863I might remember wrong, but I think Evangelyne referred to "General" as "she" and iirc Eriadne quoted a female General at some point, does that mean the military is mostly female? Or is it 50/50 and they just defaulted to "she" for nonspecific Generals because they're girls?
>>33188888>What did we do? What did we doooooooo?!Please wait warmly for the IC answer.>Also is there a magic way of enhancing the body? Absolutely, and most know at least a little about it. You start appreciating magic for the little things more than the flashy, world-shattering ones eventually. There's just a certain quality of life improvement when you, say, don't get cold any more or move on a level of elegance that makes your previous excuses for walking seem like a toddler's first steps.TL;DR: Yes, body improvement is a thing, though thorough, lasting changes are infinitely more complex than just gaining a strength boost or supercharging your hearing for a few minutes.
>>33188930Yeah, she his a lot of /tg/s charm points, honest, honourable not full of herself, and so on, and it does make her quite endearing.Conversely, all the others have something that a good few people don't like; overly proper tsun, hyperactive loli and irresponsible know-it-all - positives to some, negatives to others - whereas Maria is a good girl for everyone.
>>33189020My spellblade is ready!
>>33188863>23 minutes agolast vote was>>33188411>46 minutes agostep it up son
>>33189019>I might remember wrong, but I think Evangelyne referred to "General" as "she"Yes.>does that mean the military is mostly female? No.> Or is it 50/50 No. It's still mostly men as far as mundane combatants go, and Witches /usually/ refuse to fight in regular conflicts unless they're Hedgewitches, healers or fulfilling other support roles.Of course, if there is an extraplanar invasion EVERYONE fights and with everything they have.There are a lot of women in the military. Less due to enlightenment and more as the result of most men dying a couple hundred years ago in a massive invasion that forced women to sign up, but the custom stayed around. Had Maria not been called she could have been a ((>>33187286)) guardswoman like her father and ((>>33187232)) carried weapons, yes. It's not seen as the ideal career for a girl, neither would she be the only one in the country or even her city to have such a profession.
>>33189315>a girl, neither*but neither>>33189309W-will do.
>>33189315So casual egalitarianism. Comfy.
>>33189315But can girls love girls?
>>33189583Sounds like forbidden love to me.Though goddesses are notoriously lesbian.
>>33189583Witches can do whatever they want.> implying Maria is aware enough to consider thatMaybe Evangelyne will want to experiment on us~
>>33189583If they have a throbbing 8 inch cock, yes they can.Good thing the setting allows for this through MAGIC
I want a dragonshota boy toy.
>>33189703I feel that the weekend smut threads are your best shot at that.
>>33189315That's interesting, who invaded? Also, what's Helena's original faith like? What's the geography/climate like? I'm picturing something like eastern Europe, but I might be completely wrong.Also, are there other sapient races? If there's men with traces of dragon blood, dragons at least used to be a thing at some point, unless dragon blood isn't literal.Oh and, is every witch chosen by the goddess? Are there girls who get chosen but refuse to follow the call? What is the deal with hedge witches?I'm sorry if I'm asking too many questions, I can't help it. It's too interesting. OH YEAH before I forget, do they have indoor plumbing? Sure, they have trains, but one thing does not necessarily mean another.
> sorry for slowfagging again> there are reasons but none of them good so I'll spare you the excuses and instead try to speed up>>33190073>OH YEAH before I forget, do they have indoor plumbing?Varies, but the school does, all but the most ancient of palaces do and your house did, by virtue of being funded by the government. Before you ask, no, most everything is purposely kept as free from magitech as possible excepting very low-tier applications such as security systems. It's just not seen as worth the risk and cost should something go wrong. A mundane mechanism will break. A magical mechanism will break and actively refuse to be put back together until you get a Witch or artificer on the issue, and good luck paying those rates.>Oh and, is every witch chosen by the goddess? Are there girls who get chosen but refuse to follow the call? What is the deal with hedge witches?Yes, it's her gift to Humanity. Refusal is rare, but happens. Hedge Witches are witches operating on the fringe of magical society and pretty much do whatever they want, whenever they want, just staying out of the way enough to not get a literal Witch hunt declared on them. Cursing someone for money would be one of those things, and if you want to test the full extent of Maria's Mental Balance you're free to look for the records regarding those hedge witches that overstretched the Witch Council's patience and exactly which fun things were done to them.1/2
>>33190788> dragons at least used to be a thing at some point, unless dragon blood isn't literal.Dragons were a thing. If they still are is a mystery, and so far nobody has stepped forward and presented evidence in favour or against their existence.>Also, are there other sapient races?Fae, if you want to stretch definitions. Goblins exist but are rare in these parts.>What's the geography/climate like? I'm picturing something like eastern Europe, but I might be completely wrong.Fairly moderate climate with heavy winters and mild summers. Lots of hills.>Also, what's Helena's original faith like?The Shining Lady Athra is the goddess of new life, spring, music and healing. Usually worshipped by artisans, craftsmen, housewives and farmers. They run hospitals and orchestras as their main means of worship, each member believed to be a leaf on the tree that is their church.>That's interesting, who invaded? The Outer Void, a place badly understood from which regularly monstrous creatures invade through portals in order to try and occupy the land for themselves.
So, eventually Hex'll continue, right? Right?
>>33191328Well, he started writing two hours ago, so I figure he must be at least a third done with the first post of the next update.
"Yes, I c--" I take a few steps, already short of breath again. Dammit me, this isn't the time to go stumbling about like a bride on her maiden's farewell, not that I've ever seen one but that's probably what it would look like. Eriadne is still holding her arm out. Well, it would be rude to refuse and maaaybe I could use the help."Uh, I'd probably be fine, but let's not tempt fate. My Pa said that arrogance leads to falling, and I almost fell already". There, just keep your voice steady. Don't give her any reason to look down on you. Oh right!I snatch up the paper and put it into my breast pocket."Let's go!" Well that came out way softer than intended. Evangelyne, stop looking at us like that, there is nothing funny about accidents. And stop winking at Helena, it's bad to teach kids to be spiteful.I glare, but it slides right off of her as she shrugs, gathering up the books we used on a cart to be taken back to their places by the attendants. Well, she's orderly and respects other's work at least. Should I really be judging her? Helena has begun helping her eagerly."They will be fine", Eriadne says, leading me away."But I haven't yet returned m-""Stop trying to save the world all the time. You just almost killed yourself doing something dumb. I'm sure they won't mind moving a book or two more". Nobles really know how to fight dirty… I fall silent before remembering what I actually wanted to ask."So what was it that I almost 'killed myself with'?" "Magic".Why thanks."...and?""Nothing 'and', you spoke an Invokation and had your First Awakening right there. Ask Ms Stonehugger if you don't believe me"She sighs."When a Witch first touches magic it's called her First Awakening. It's dangerous to do and some died from it. I'd appreciate it if you stopped making fun of that possibility." Defiant Neutral Accepting1/2
She pulls out her own copy of the map which looks surprisingly pristine for having been in her pocket all the time."They'll want us at orientation within ten minutes. They'll ask what being a Witch means to you. Since we're in the same house and room I can't have you make a fool of yourself. What will you say to them?> What does being a Witch mean to me?

[X] Accepting> "Protect others and bring evildoers to justice. Be true to myself.I hang my head, equal parts ashamed and exhausted, feet dragging."I-I'm sorry"."Don't say that. Don't just say 'I'm sorry' as if it means something"."I'm so--" Just quickly enough I catch myself. Or so I think, but Eriadne's flat sideways look tells another tale. Goddess, what does she want?!"I mean, uh, why wouldn't it mean something? I really *am* sorry!" I can feel my own frustration bubble up and seep into my voic before getting it back under control."When people say 'I'm sorry' they usually mean 'I'm sorry it went bad' or 'I'm sorry I got caught', nothing more". Heavens but she sounds angry...I'm half-tempted to snap at her, but think better of it."I understand. I will stop doing-- I will *try* not to do stupid things anymore and be more careful."Her previously taut muscles and expressions soften a bit, and she looks at me briefly, rather than staring straight ahead. Guess that's a good sign, but you can't ever know with her."Better." Wait, that's it?"...I, uh". She swallows. Hard. Then takes a breath and coughs, covering her mouth with the back of her hand. Must be something bad she ate. Speaking of which, I'm starving. Wait, that isn't the topic here at all!"I mean, I apologize!". She almost spits out the words, quick and hard. Why is she so flustered? "It wasn't right to treat you like that". Back to icy calmness. Well, that was quick. Somehow I feel like it's my fault she lost herself like that."N-no, it's okay, I deserved that. It's okay!""It's n-" She squints at me, suddenly wary."Are you doing that on purpose?" "Do what?""Never mind."We walk a while in silence. She seems a tick less irritated with herself at least so that's good, but it still feels a bit awkward. Suddenly, her previous question comes back to me and I perk up.1/?
"It means to protect those that cannot do it themselves! To help the weak and guard humanity against its enemies. It means being true to who I am!""--what?""My answer. You wanted to hear it, right?""Oh…" Then, "I expected something like that. You're an interesting person, Lady Maria of Antioch." I can feel myself colour slightly, that being probably the last thing I expected in response. Hm. That was a compliment, wasn't it? It totally was, if just another one of those strange things nobles tend to say. My chest -such as it is- swells with pride and I allow myself to smile though I can feel it still being a bit lopsided from exhaustion.The moment doesn't last long though, the sense of Helena's presence barely registering before she wraps her arms around my waist with a delighted squee. When did she learn to sneak like that? Evangelyne contents herself with just patting us both on the shoulder, like an inkeeper might his two favourite customers. "Sorry to interrupt your little chitchat, but you took the wrong turn back there and the little runt here has sharp eyes so we thought we'd fetch you before you two love birds walk out a window somewhere." What's a love bird?"We were just looking for the training areas", Eriadne says, her voice coloured in deep indignation. We weren't, were we? Maybe that's where she wanted to go? Well, best to keep quiet."Even worse, we don't have the time for that". Evangelyne resolutely steers us back, my legs working hard to keep up with her pushing as we're maneuvered down a particularily broad hallway hung with brocade banners of houses I don't recognize -- not that that says much.2/?
Before I realize we're standing before two high double doors carved with birds, flowers and dragons. Just in time, too, two women in the finery of school servants making motions to close them, our group just managing to slip inside before they glide shut on well-oiled hinges. Push to the front together. Just because we're late doesn't mean it would be okay to miss things. Stay in the back. Best not to make a commotion after dawdling this much.

>>33201396That is up to WeismanYes
>>33201396Oh so sensually.
>>33201421>>33201416Do we even know what sensually means?
>>33201460Where do you think we are?
>>33201460We do, Maria probably doesn't.
I can't do thisi'm gonna go sleep and see if Hex has updated in the morning
>>33201669That's what I did and stuff happened. I recommend it.
>>33201717> hex couldn't update because he was busy watching you sleep
>>33201717I've been doing that for the last 2 1/2 weeks and CCQ still hasn't updated :(OI HEX YA GIT, ITS SATURDAY
>>33201669I went to sleep, and woke up just in time for the update, it'll be fine.
>>33201774Oh god, I think you're right.>>33201790Means that you're just not sleeping the right way. It's an art form!
>>33200805> Stay in the back. Best not to make a commotion after dawdling this much.> Talk to Eriadne
>>33200805>>33200898>[x] Stay in the back. Best not to make a commotion after dawdling this much.>[x] Talk to Eriadne and Evangelyne"So, what's the plan now?"
>>33201940> questions are allowed and in fact encouraged
>>33202239Will asking questions slow you down even more?
>>33202259I'm on my phone right now so I can't make quest, hence the scheduled break comment.…maybe I COULD make quest actually, I've never tried.
>>33202259thats like asking whether a glacier is slowed down if a dinghy rams it...
>>33202292Do you dislike the slightly mean jokes about posting speed, or would you prefer imouto speculation or best girl arguments?
>>33202339> best girl argumentsMaria >* fucking settled
>>33202369This Anon knows what's up.>>33202239Explain First Awakening.
>>33202369Okay, ranking arguments then.
>>33202369oh we're agreed there anon, but now we have to decide what kind of cock we're going to majik onto her and who gets to taste it first
>>33202292Characters other than Maria seem to be aware of the existance of lesbianism, but what is the social attitude toward homosexuality?Since witches don't retain their previous social class, are they basically a class to themselves? Do they have a formalised internal hierarchy?
>>33202400Eriadne, and only Eriadne. I suggest a ridged cock.
>>33202400>gets to taste it firstOrgy. Everyone gets a taste.
>>33202437>not wanting to experiment with Evangelyne>not wanting enthusiastic but inexperienced Helena funToo pleb. Ridged cock is good though.
>>33202460>>33202438Maria is a pure girl, no slutting about pls. We'll turn Eriadne into a jelly donut each night and keep the others as friends.
>>33202480>keep the others as friends.we're still going to fuck them senseless
>>33202480Friends with benefits.
>>33202487>>33202489No slut pls.
>>33202502Slut is good, embrace the slut, enjoy life.
>>33202516Slut is least pure love.
>>33202502we won't be the slut, they will be our sluts
>>33202562Doesn't work that way. They will all be sluts then.
I'd say 'poor Hexer' but at least it keeps the thread active!And I still think Eriadne best girl.
>>33202569Magic dude, we can magic the 'slutness' awayAin't gotta explain shit
>>33202530Slut is purest love. Slut is widest love.
>>33202580Still a slut.
>>33202570Well at least we're not writing fanfiction of him as a little girl being sexually harassed by XS nee-san.
>>33202593Well honestly, I'm not sure I'd prefer this. On one hand I care less about people making things up/fantasizing about my internet persona or whatever than I'd do about my beloved characters (though this assumes he isn't fine with best girl/shipping talk I admit), on the other as mentioned, at least it is quest related - QM derails in their own quests are really annoying.
Why do you want to give Maria a coco anyway?
>>33202593That's not a challenge, is it?
>>33202437>>33202400Eriadne is the only Tsundere I ever enjoyed reading about but shit we need to bang the bitchy smartsassery out of Evangelyne stat.
>>33202714Anon no, I beg you!
>>33202740But our character is super sub we would be the one getting fucked.
>>33202754nah, she's just be a power bottom
>>33202754Being naive doesn't mean we're a sub, we can totally top everyone with our magical ridged cock.
>>33202769>>33202775We just got told off for saying I'm sorry. That's sub/10 in my books. Not to mention being low born and stupid.
>>33202754Switch or powerbottom. She seems to enjoy sorting others out>>33202570It's funny cause apart from the love birds comment the quest has been incredibly pure.
>>33202785Low born and UNEDUCATED. I wouldn't say Maria's stupid, though maybe a little... uncomplicated.
>>33202852I'm pretty sure anons are just magical realming it up because it's an easy way to keep the thread active.
>>33202785We're not outright stupid, and it's not like Eriadne was looking down on us. She even apologized too! Stuff like that is why she's best girl, no coddling but no being a bitch without regrets either.
>>33202852>Switch or powerbottom.Maybe with Helena or maybe Evangeglyne but we are clearly sub to Eriadne.>>33202884Being stupid doesn't mean you can't get smart with work.
>>33202785> low bornDoes that matter?> stupidWe're literally twelve. We've been rather insightful for being so young.
>>33202884>Stuff like that is why she's best girlWell it's not like we've really given anyone else a chance.
>>33202898Helena would be two cuties exploring, without a real power dynamic, Evangelyne needs sexy punishing. Eriadne seems like a nice top, so that's okay I suppose.
>>33202905B-but giving other girls a chance might mean they take away the best girl status from Eriadne! That's not allowed!Really though, they're all nice. Well, Evangelyne is a bit of a bitch, but that's a delicious dynamic as well so hey.
>>33202918>Evangelyne needs sexy punishing.Would be fun but we would need a way more dominating character to do it. Besides there's nothing wrong with being sub, it's a pity more quests don't go for it.
>>33202918>>33200783> Evangelyne contents herself with just patting us both on the shoulder, like an inkeeper might his two favourite customers. Maria might be a really unreliable narrator but this bit is still interesting. Eva seems to ship them, rather than wanting to be with either of them.
>>33202939It's not that uncommon in actual smut quests, actually. But in regular quests, yeah anons have to be the big man/woman in charge seemingly.
>>33202969Yeah, I think it's a same it doesn't crop up as much. It can make for some fun scenes.
>>33202982I agree. I actually prefer it in romance/relationship scenes to actual porn myself, so it's a pity only the porn gets that dynamic. But oh well. This is pretty off-topic huh...wonder if Hexer's asleep.
>>33202998I actually prefer it in romance/relationship scenes to actual porn myself.Same here it makes for a more interesting romance story.
>>33202852It feels a bit like Hero Quest. Actually someone should get flatfic writer in here, heard they're pretty frustrated with the situation there so this could be a neat change of pace.
>>33202998The lewdness killed him.
>>33203078I don't believe you! Hexer is a /tg/ veteran, no way would this kill him. Besides, other than ridged cock anon who's just a weirdo, things haven't been that lewd anyway.
>>33203078He was already kill before the lewdness got into full swing.
>>33202292Do Eriadne and Evangelyne really have white hair?
>>33203157Anime, anon. There is probably a couple girls with blue hair in the room right now.
>>33202292Helena needs a bump so she can compete for best girl status, Hexer. Eriadne and Maria are obviously best girls already, and Evangelyne fills an important niche and dynamic in the quest. Helena has potential but needs something more than 'spaz' to get there.That said, I'm fine with getting thrown on the Eriadne-train, next stop waifu-ville, too.
>>33203279Yeah, Helena is cute but we haven't really had much insight into her.
>>33200805Oh hey an update while I was sleeping.[x] Stay in the back. Best not to make a commotion after dawdling this much.[x] Stay silent and focus.
>>33202292Does Helena have Cleric powers?
>Herbert Kleinsman @ConvictCyborg>The connection in this place is killing me. Quest resumes at 1630 UTC. Going to try and get some Q&A posts through in the meantime.Hex, stop abandoning your other better quest for fucks sake, it ain't going to be Saturday for much longer...
>>33203649>>33203638>>33203599Obviously he needs to cross them over.
>>33203666>Clark endlessly bullying Maria>Catelyn making Eva her bitchExcellent ideas there, devil.
>>33203666yeah nah, thats a terrible idea
>>33203666What, and ruin both simultaneously?
>>33203599It's going to be Saturday for a while yet, and this is clearly the better quest anyway.
>>33203938>>33203938Because it has little girls in vaguely lesbian situations?
>This entire discussion.
Ohai, had someone mention this to me and read till last update. Good stuff much better than expected. So now we wait?
>>33204142Wait does not even begin to express the magnitude of that which we shall do.But yes.
>>33204142Wait, wait and bully.
>>33204177Sounds like the title of a Hexer themesong.
>>33204248That would be Infected Mushroom's Going Insane.
>>33203599>90 minutes later>No Q&ASasuga Hexer
>>33204364Hex needs to stop doing silly things like leaving the house.
>>33204177>>33204160Ha okay. The PC is cute.
Now is a good time to do those workouts you've been thinking of doing, Anons.Right now.Do it. Do it for your imouto!Anon-oniichan! I've returned from the witch academy! Di- did you wait for me? Oh, you've become so manly~!
Anyone else getting a Little Witch Academia feel from this? When there are updates, anyway?
>>33204779I was thinking of making a joke regarding that and futas but decided it would've been tasteless. Guess this thread proved me wrong.
>>33204779Yeah, I get the same feeling.
>>33204779It's based on a clusterfuck of ideas, let me find the post.
>>33204802I'll just... Leave this...http://exhentai.org/g/627222/5704f6b396/
>>33204779http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/31928287/#31937435Found it. Not sure how much of that is still in.
>>33205162Where do you think I got the idea?Very considerate though!
>>33203326Minor ones, though for how much longer is another matter. Among other things she can detect and differentiate the life force signatures of living beings (hide-and-seek is one of those things clerics of Lady Athra play as a form of training), requires a lot less sleep than normal people and has a basic intuitive understanding of the human body.>>33203157Eriadne's hair is white, it's a trait many draconic nobles have regardless of biological sex. What the deal with Evangelyne's is is a mystery, but the answer might be as simple as dye.>>33202428>Do they have a formalised internal hierarchy?Novice, Adept, High Witch. Houses are organized by Cells of no more than eight, cell leaders are beholden to the High Witch of their house and her council. All organized (non-hedge) witches are in theory beholden to the council of nine, who give out basic guidelines of behavior and act as the go-between between Witches and mundane forces during war time.>what is the social attitude toward homosexuality?...this will *so* be taken the wrong way. Oh well, time for political suicide.Casual and casually dismissive, i.e it's okay to have such leanings but it's generally seen as a phase and something to get over. Public displays of overt affection are generally looked down upon in this part of the world, but that extends to both heterosexual and homosexual relations. Nobles are usually expected to breed at least once.>>33202339>best girl arguments?No problem with those.> imouto speculationWhy.>jokes about posting speed,Eh, I'm sorta used to them by now, and it's not like they're without basis.
>>33205662>>33205662>Eriadne's hair is white, it's a trait many draconic nobles have regardless of biological sex.Wait. I thought she was adopted. So her real parents were also nobles?>Oh well, time for political suicide.I, for one, am supportive of this, though not that much of a waifufag.It meshes with what I know of the setting.
>>33205662>Oh well, time for political suicide.Only the idiots in Larro's or Kaleun's fanbase can't separate in and out of universe things from each other, if you mean the social stance.
>>33205779Wasn't she adopted by her aunt though?
>>33205832It's fine with Hex because that is actually reasonable given the setting, Larro gets shit because he's trying to distance himself from his 'overly happy lesbians'-past with suffering, and Kaleun just hates lesbians and doesn't think they can be happy, neither of which is true here.
>>33205906Archelon had a similar thing in his setting, and caught a bit of flak for it though.
>>33205902That's literally what he was asking.>>33205923False Dendrite? How did that manifest?
>>33205945What I meant to say was, if she was adopted by her aunt, and her aunt was a noble, then whichever parent the aunt was the sister of would share the same noble lineage.
>>33205662Is there gay marriage?
>>33205945Not False Dendrite, Princess Guard, it has a somewhat worse attitude toward homosexuality than this despite being less convincingly non-modern in terms of sensibilities.
>>33206038The joke is that PGQ isn't convincingly anything isn't it.
>>33205906>Kaleun just hates lesbians and doesn't think they can be happyWas that ever confirmed to be anything other than L&M?
>>33206038> less convincingly non-modernHow can it be, if this is fantasy 20th century earth and his setting is medieval? Note I haven't read it.
>>33206144IIRC He's said that he has never met a happy lesbian and all lesbian relationships he's been in contact with were toxic and horrible, his quests have consistantly had lesbians be either not actually be lesbians or be for suffering/ the butt of a joke. However, despite all that, anything else is just L&M / a running joke, he has said he doesn't actually feel how anon thinks he feels, and did at one point promise to, at some point in the future, run the sweetest, most happy lesbian relationship quest ever.
>>33206158The characters all talk like modern people, including really jarring swearing, and have modern attitudes to things - not respecting social class and being disgusted by the idea of slavery and indentured servitude despite living in what is ostensibly a medieval monarchy and that sort of thing.
>>33206188>he has never met a happy lesbian and all lesbian relationships he's been in contact with were toxic and horribleActually, I've said I've never met a lesbian I liked, and only know two I don't dislike. And /all but one/ of their relationships were toxic and horrible. I actually know a happily married couple. I just happen to also not like either of them. But that's for reasons completely separate to their sexuality, and more to do with them fucking over my best friend.
>>33206035Depends on which deity you want to get married under. In the odd case a homosexual union gets formalized it's usually done with the blessing of Sharsee, goddess of Law, Loyalty, Truth and Contracts. >>33205966That will not do, anon. That will not do at all.>>33205832Well that... is a thing, I guess.>>33205779>It meshes with what I know of the setting.Coolio!>Wait. I thought she was adopted. So her real parents were also nobles?They were, and when they died the claim to the Main House's leadership passed onto. Having to raise her future superior may or may not have played part in her aunt's resentment towards her, though honestly it's likelier she was just an unpleasant person in general. Seeing how Eriadne is legally dead now she must feel somewhat relieved...
>>33206294What is the goddess that gives witches their powers goddess of? Would it really have been her leading or her husband?
>>33206361>Would it really have been her leading or her husband?Her, but as Karl Martel demonstrated, power can lay wherever people are savvy enough to grab it, even if it's with a glorified janitor and dinner arranger. Err, yes. Her, anon.>What is the goddess that gives witches their powers goddess of?Nobody knows, really. She's not really part of the pantheon and is generally enigmatic. Standing theory has it that she simply *is*, rather than being the goddess of anything in particular.Some scholars theorize that she's a manifestation of the all-pervading Female principle of the universe, but really, who takes Theoretical Metaphysicists seriously?
>>33206361All-Mother and witches don't give a shit. Also who caaares? Magic swordwandssss!
>>33206475>>33206462Wait, I thought it was All-Mother? You're confusing me.
>>33206490The goddess is the All-Mother. It's her title they use in place of a name, the same way the Judeo-christian God is only ever described, rather than outright named (I Am Who I am, The Lord of Hosts, Lord, Most High, God Almighty, God Most High, etc etc).
>>33206561Right, got it. Spooky.
>>33206561How religious are people in general?
>>33206462>Theoretical MetaphysicistsThe fuck are applied metaphysics, or am I reading too much into a weak joke?
>>33206561>>33206582She is basically a lovecraftian entity only not evil.
>>33206840> crawling c-Very funny Japan.
>>33206755That was interesting.
>>33205662>>33206294> homophobic setting> doesn't trigger a shitstormWow.
>>33206977>homophobicNothing even like it. Ambivalence more like it.
>>33206977>homophobic = people don't throw themselves at faggots' feet begging for validation
>>33206977People might have cared more if it looked to impact their waifuing.
>>33206977Seems a bit more like they disapprove of any romantic or sexual relationship that they can see, but only in that they can see it.More of a keep it to yourself culture.And I'm fine with that.
>>33206977> homophobicIt's a lot more tolerant than the actual 1920's, let me tell you.
>>33207180I hope holding hands is okay at least...
>>33207262If not we can defy them, anon, it's okay.
>>33207262Wow man, that's crossing the line! Jeez, you're horrible deviant, aren't you?
>>33207262Haven't we been holding hands with our oujo-sama this entire time?I think people would have said something.
>>33207642We have been leaning on her because we fried our magic circuits. Totally different.I hope that won't have a negative after-effect.
>>33207683Leaning on her can only lead to good things, anon!
>>33207727That's not what he means, and you know it.>>33207683Seems like it's something that happens often. It shouldn't be a problem.
>>33207813>Seems like it's something that happens often. It shouldn't be a problem.Eriadne also said it's normally done with tutoring. I'm just afraid we might have done the magical equivalent of tearing a sinew or muscle really badly.It's totally a metaphor for virginity isn't it?
>>33207863Well, we also shouldn't have been capable of doing it in the first place without tutoring, or at least that's what I gather from Evangelyne's "you've got talent" comment.
>>33207921Chantseeker probably is a trait that's somehow related to that.
>>33207863To be honest, that's almost exactly how I was interpreting Evangelyne's comments at first.
>>33207921I got a "shouldn't have done" vibe from it. Not shouldn't have been able to".>>33207973And we won't ever know whether we are the perverts seeing things or Hex was just rusin us.
>>33207863>>33207973I'm pretty sure that was intentional.
>>33208094Could have been. Germans are sneaky and from an in universe perspective Eva strikes me as quite lewd.
>>33207921I read that as being able to do it without tutoring being rare, but not unheard of.
I legit can't tell whether this thread is over or not. I'm about to go to sleep again and there's been, what, two story posts during my waking time?Crazy shit.
>>33209549It's suppose to restart in like an hour I think
>>33209561Motherfuck! I want to sleep, damn it!
>>33209633You should have slept hours ago
>>33209688Don't tell me what to do! You're not my dad!
>>33209719Are you sure, son?
>>33209746Too much for me! I'm out!Don't do too many lewd things. Maria is pure.
>>33209561The restart will need to be a new thread, this one is about to fall off the board.
>>33209774>Maria is pure.Currently. Maria is currently pure.This will change.Or not.
