My mind peels back and shrieks, the myriad pieces of my soul becoming miniature stars of pain that echo and pulse across infinity while all possibilities past, present, future and unthinkable neverwhere spread out before our inner eye like a tapestry of gold. I am a little child, crying alone and forelorn, a young bride under the wedding arch about to receive the sealing kiss, a general ordering her troops to crush her enemies, an assassin, a god, a cleric, a baker, a sinner, a saint, a word, a thought, an idea, and then-- the infinite lights up, another soul grabbing hold of me, pulling me up, pulling me out, the mad carnival falling away behind us. I look towards the figure holding me, all glad in swirling whites and silvers, but I can't make out the face, only a sense of deep familiarity.The space around us grows ever brighter, the sensation like swimming through murky waters and with a gasp, we're back to the surface.=End of Arc I=> please wait warmly> questions etc welcome
>>33347312>=End of Arc I=It's over, go home everyone
>>33347361This is my home.
>>33347312I know this is not the case, but the end of the post makes it look like a one-update thread to finish the first arc and that's somewhat appropriate for this quest really.Looking forward to the rest!
>>33347312There you are!
>>33347312Is this what our 99 encounter roll gave us?
>>33347471Maria is tripping her tits off. Wait does she have tits.
>>33347566She's just entering puberty, so maybe?
>>33347566She's a tween or a year after that. So the answer would be maybe.
>>33347312>End of Arc IDoes this mean it's going to be Day 2 when Maria wakes up? You can't just call days arcs.
>>33347628No.>>33347471Oh it's not the only thing.> writing
>>33347628Well we just got through the introductory arc.
>>33347675>didn't have our first combat magic classLike hell we did.
>>33347583>>33347597Tweeny tits are the best.
>>33347664>Oh it's not the only thing.Oh geez
>>33347696Well seeing as we're getting PLOT now, I'd wager we are.
>>33347774PLOT can fuck right off until we get to see Maria show off how fit and guardy she is.
>>33347816Is there any other way?
>take three hours to post the OP>it's not even completehex pls
>>33348180Welcome to Hex Speed™.
>>33348180Welcome to "The Greatest Argument for Becoming a Lich."
>>33348180You still love you slut
>>33348240I thought that was the opportunity to become a lolilich....is hex a lolilich?
>>33348295> ATOW: Hexer's painsluts
>>33348315Hands are too small for the keyboard, has to resort to pecking one key at a time.
>>33348341That is very true
So... Who else is looking forward to Combat class?
>>33348959>Armed Combat Basics and Weapon BasicsSuper excited
>>33348959I would be, but OP is kill.
>>33348959Assuming we're not tripping our deliciously perky tits off at the hospital for the rest of the day.
>>33349082>I would be, but OP is kill.The deal was one update per hour.
>>33349112Oh, missed that part.Waiting warmly, then.
I want Eriadne to princess carry us.
>>33349220>Not princess carrying EriadneTaller girls being princess carried is my fetish
>>33349252That can come later. For now we're the injured little birdie that needs to be cared for!!
>>33349112its been 2 hours...but its okay, he probably forgot to hit submit again.
>>33349252I think that'd be cute.
I shake my head.Right.I am Maria of house Antioch, and, right now, unsure about every single thing apart from that.I can recall falling. I can recall ending. I can recall being saved just when I lost all hope.> Current drain: 67% (Stable)> Current toughness: 60% (Stable)> Current stress: 25% (Decreasing)My eyes look unseeing, a few minutes passing before I understand what's going on. Okay, me, try not being stupid and actually look what you're staring at for once.The person pinching your cheeks is Eriadne. Your friend. That look she has? She is worried. Why is she worried? Hmm. Stuff for later. You probably messed up again. You mess up all the time. You're stupid like that. It's amazing she still wants to stay around such a stupid girl. Aaaaaah. Don't panic. Move on.There is a slightly older girl standing right at the edge of the little group surrounding you. Sanya. Yes, good, you recall her name. See, even being stupid you can figure things out if you try. She looks like she's about to cry.I blink. "Talk to me, Lady Maria!""Uh, hello Eriadne. Ow, let go of my face!"She jumps back as if burned, stammering something I can't make out, her hands hidden inside the folds of her dress. Hey, you're not implying I'm dirty, are you?!From the corner of my eye I can see Sanya dart to the door and out the room just before the teacher steps up to me."I'm happy you're back. You have a really good friend to drag you all the way back to reality." Why did she pause before saying "friend"? I she saying Eriadne isn't my friend? That's just not right!"I'm sorry, Mistre--""Don't feel bad, it happens. It should be me to apologize for not watching properly".Uuh now it went right back to emberassing. Speaking of emberassing, Eriadne seems to have gone from flushed at my terrible display back to her usual composed mask of icy calm, only looking at me sideways. I'll have to apologize for that later on. > 1/2
"Do you think you can keep listening? I'm not forcing you either way, one of the most important thing a witch has to learn early is make her own decisions". The teacher is looking at me, speculatively."Either way, I recommend your friend watch you for a bit. Though she seems to have been doing that anyway". Eriadne has been watching me? It always seemed the other way round. Well, Teacher probably knows it better than I, right? Yes. Attend the class as a listener, don't experiment further. No. Ask Eriadne to bring me to my room. No. Relax outside till the next class. OtherI decide to Seek out Sanya later on. I must comfort her. Seek out Sanya later on. I blame her for this. Seek out Sanya later on. I must know what she did. Forget about Sanya. She probably didn't understand any of this or had anything to do with it. Other.> sorry for being so slow and a shit again
>>33349741[dense little girl intensifies]
>>33349761> Yes. Attend the class as a listener, don't experiment further.> Seek out Sanya later on. I must comfort her.
>>33349761>[X] Yes. Attend the class as a listener, don't experiment further.>[X] Seek out Sanya later on. I must know what she did.
>>33349761>[x] Yes. Attend the class as a listener, don't experiment further.>[x] Seek out Sanya later on. I must comfort her.>[x]Ask Eriadne what happenedI don't blame her, I don't even know what happened
>>33349935>>33349926Wrong thread. BRB Sudoku.
>>33349885>I don't blame her, I don't even know what happenedWe got mindfucked without lube.
>>33349741Maria is a cute dense little girl
If Fate is our mind instructor is Nanoha our combat one?
A lot more quiet than last time.
>>33350154Hex did start fairly late, we might see it pick up later
>>33350154Still 56 posts with two updates. Hex might get bigger than PGQ if he applied himself.
>>33350214Gross. Getting bigger normally just means flame wars and people shitting on each other.
>>33350041I hope so. That way not only will we learn how to kick ass and See the future, they can also teach us the meaning of the Lily.
>>33350243>they can also teach us the meaning of the Lily.I am absolutely on board with this
>>33350243Nanoha doesn't really do physical combat though unless pressed. Maybe Signum.
> counting, closing, writing> might need to do a break for a few hours soon, sorry guys
>>33350575It's cool Hex, you probably feel worse about it than any anon here
>>33350575So there shouldn't be a noticeable difference in posting times?
>>33350575Week-long thread go. Everyone post really slowly!
>>33350591> uwaa i hope anon-sama isn't mad at mee!
>>33350269>>33350243> 4way teaching session go
>>33350606Anon. No.>>33350596Maybe not week-long, no. Gotta attain fast even if it kills me.>>33350592...perhaps not.>>33350591I dunno about that, does feel bad man.
>>33351149You'll learn to go fast eventually, I believe in you Hex.I'll continue to make fun of you until you do, but that's because I can't help but want to.
>>33351149>even if it kills me.Will you tell us the secret to gud and cuteness in case it does?
>>33351149Teasing aside, I have faith in you Hex
BUT WHAT DID SANYA DO?!
>>33351282We'll find out in about a month or so.
>>33351282>>33351295She spammed possibilities at us.
>>33351282Who knows, last thread ended with her going>"It seems… you might understand".>Sanya looks at us, solemnly.>And, just like that, the world falls away into infinite blackness.
>>33351282I don't know but it's a metaphor for homosexuality somehow.
>>33351282She gave us a magic cock while we were high.
>>33351282>BUT WHAT DID SANYA DO?!Crossed over ATOW with Hexer quest.Hexer is Landing Gear.
>>33347312What's going on?
So Sanya is an Ozoi expy?So XS ~is~ Hexer's onee-sama!
Just realised I've no idea what kind of hair Maria has.
>>33352110I've been imagining her with shoulder length hair, a little practical but still cute
>>33352233That's more or less what I was thinking. At least it would let me hide ears. I hate drawing ears.Hex needs to have a proper description on the character sheet.
>>33352510Moe as hell.
>>33352628Is hell a moe place? How moe is it?
>>33352709Well it depends on what the standard of measurement for moe is.
>>33352797>now knowing standard measurement for moeIt is universally standardized and easy to understand. Not understanding it is like not knowing what a meter is. What are you, American or something?
>>33352821We talking about the proper measurement or imperial measurement of moe?
>>33352271All you need to know about Maria is that she's n-not cute at all and will never measure up to Eriadne-senpai!!
>>33352869Proper of course. Didn't you hear me say universally standardized and easy to understand.
>>33352709My Little Demon Can't Be This Imouto.
Oh hey archive anon here, eta on OP returning? What just happened?
>>33352892Oh stop it you!>>33352896Oh yeah, my bad. Carry on then.
Stop posting, faggots. Wait till we're on page 9 or something.
>>33352917>eta on OP returningYou never know with hexer. He may come back in a few hours. He may come in a few days. Or he may never come and decide to move to akun.
>>33351774Why did everyone latch onto XS as Hexer's onee-san again?
>>33352947No reason. It just came up when everyone around was bored and in the right mood.
>>33352939>and decide to move to akunso he can update never ;_;
>>33352947They, uh, are both WoD fans and slightly queer. Yea I got nuthin.>>33352935ATOW is a talky quest it can't be helped.
>>33352959CCQ fan too I presume?
>>33352974>slightly queer>FtM and lesbian with Guro fetishDon't wanna know what you call massively queer.Just kidding I love them both.
>>33352917>>33352939XS onee-sama put Hex-imouto in The Box.
>>33352909> Hexer means Witcher> witches were thought of as demonic creatures> Hex quests from hell
>>33352959he said he would update after the previous thread of this...
I worked out why Eriadne keeps calling us Lady. Remember when they did the introduction, and Maria was like "I wonder what it'd be like, being referred to as lady" or something like that? And then Eri started calling her Lady Maria.
>>33353039>>33353039Fifty bucks the update has been done since ATOW thread three and Hex just hates it too much to post it.
>>33353043Did she say or just think it?
>>33353061more like he just completely forgot to post it or forgot to hit submithe's done both before..
>>33353075well theres one way to find outwe need to go around with her constantly thinking about fucking her long and hard and see how she reacts
>>33353086I don't think Maria could without running away in embarrassment. I don't think she knows that girls can love girls with.
>>33353079>>33353061More like he keeps procrastinating and has not written it, which was also the case in previous occasions, but instead of admitting it he just lies that he has totally done it but some unfortunate accident prevented him from posting.
>>33353137There's also the problem of her probably not even dreaming about Eriadne liking her as a lover.
Did we agree on weapons yet?
>>33353137>she knows that girls can love girls with.with what?>>33353223Ribbons.
>>33353223Do we actually use weapons?
>>33353223a bladed stave I thinkor our magic ribbed cock
>>33353223Stave as standard and some spear skills.
>>33353228We've got the Armed Combat Basics feat. Might as well use it.
>>33353296That's true I guess we could use a poleaxe or something for maximum cute guardness.
>>33353226No idea why I typed "with". Pretend I wrote "with the same earnesty as guys can love girls".
>>33353321>No idea why I typed "with"because you wanted to write>she knows that girls can love girls with giant magical dicks
>>33353333I don't even remember why the magic dick this started in the first place.
>>33353296But anon, don't you know that multiclassing into fighter slows down level progression?
>>33353351Nah, we just have bonus proficiencies.
>>33353351But we war magus now though.
>>33353351According to D&D logic the entire core cast should have fucked up BAB and level progression.Helena is Cleric/Witch/Bard, Eriadne is Witch/Sorcerer, Evangelyne is Artificer/Witch/Slut, we're Witch/Fighter/Rogue.
>>33353391Nerf slut too OP
>>33353391We're using Amber RPG instead.
>>33353343ATOW gets lewd when OP doesn't post. Which is all the time which equals lots of lewds.
>>33353370I can get behind that, in more ways than one.Most like the swordcane. And dat qt hat.
>>33353514Staff with bayonets are pretty much the best witch weapon.
>>33353539All right then, that's the weapon of choice. That's what I'm aiming for anyway!Vote for Bayonetstaff, the only true Guardian weapon. You don't want Eriadne to die, do you?
>>33353647Now imagine the scene where Eriadne walks in on a attaching the bayonet to the staff and freaking out.
>>33353647But we're a stupid girl that can't do anything right! Eriadne is better off without us. ;_;
>>33353539I'm going to stat one up for the RPG I'm playing now.
>Go to sleep a little after thread posted>One update!This time I had predicted such given timezones! Ha-HA!
>>33353700Yuro pls. Don't you have free healthcare to enjoy or something?
>>33353663I like it.>W-what! You can't do that! It's unconventional! Maria pls!>>33353677Silly Anon, that's why Eriadne is the best for Maria and vice versa.>>33353695Share that shit when you're done. It sounds pretty bitching.
>>33353716Joke's on you, I already am!
>>33353759What is your preferred system?
>>33353759>>33353695ATOW RPG when.
>>33353820>▶ Apparently after I write up Ryukuza RPG.
>>33353800Hm, well, my group plays PF RPG but I planning on transitioning to Fantasy Craft ones the goddamn books arrive.So I guess Pathfinder RPG since there's a better chance of me playing a character in that.
>>33353848Staff Bayonet, Exotic Weapon.4 GP (includes cost of counterbalance and pins) 1d4 small, 1d6 medium, piercing weapon, 20 x2 crit. This is a blade which is attached by a collar device to a staff. Unlike that for a musket, the staff bayonet is extended out to the side as well as forward so that the often unusually shaped head of a mage's staff is accommodated. A counterweight is also included to provide balance for the added weight of the collar and blade. The blade can be removed and used as a short sword. Because of the unusual balance, it takes training to utilize a staff bayonet. The addition of the counterweight does not increase the standard staff damage for use as a double weapon, but does not impede that use either. A staff bayonet may be enchanted normally, and if removed, retains its enchantment. The fittings are designed for most standard short swords.
>>33353820Wouldn't that just be Earthdawn?
>>33353911Now which class could best make use of this?
>>33353949None of them, it's a stupid weapon. (Sorcerer, actually, since they have simple weapon proficiency and can use short swords, and Staff Magus, who gets the most out of it).
>>33353911My dick is the hardest. Thanks, man!
>>33353820How would you even implement rules for Futuresense? Improved Initiative?
>>33354018Increase initiative, increased reflexes, lowered surprise rate. Lowered concentration rate/score.
>>33353820Personally, I'd use GURPS, with the Blessing of the Goddess being ranks of Magery. The schools of magic are already set up, and the fact that you can take any skill means there is no issue with the varieties of training. Rolemaster would work well also.
>>33354062> GURPSDoes it do Drain, Toughness and Stress?
>>33354111It can. Fatigue and Health are already listed, and Stress is an optional rule. You might go for a Fate system, though. Dresden does magic all right.
>>33354111There's nothing GURPS does not do. Except fuck your mother because damn son that skank is nasty.
>>33354111What do all the stats mean, anyone mind translating the character to sheet for an anon?
>>33354307Toughness is an alternate HP concept used in Mutants and Masterminds, Drain is how much magic you can use and implemented in Shadowrun and Stress is mental health level and used in various horror RPG.Like a good little skank hex takes a little from everywhere.
Hexer where are you
>>33355254Right here. Thanks for your patience, everyone.
>>33355254Anon h-how did you?
>>33355266It's okayI just woke up anyway
>>33355281XS finally let Hexmouto out of The Box.
>>33355266Hey, what about a man who feels as a woman? Would he become a witch?
>>33355337No traps here anon.
>>33355337It's magic, anything could happen. I'd be inclined to say don't open this can of worms.
>>33355337Run it in /d/ where there are no neurotypicals to block it.
>>33355337Is this the face of bait?
>>33355337inb4 hex responds and it kills the quest in SJW shitstorming.
>>33355266OH MY GOD I CAN SUMMON HEXERI MUST USE MY POWER FOR GOOD
>>33355337My guess would be only biological girls, so there might be ftm witches, if you wanted to go down that route.
>>33355415No, you must use your power for bullying.
>>33355415>http://beta.anonkun.com/stories/Convict-Cyborg-Quest/-JMFk_wdRc9DMT-Lll95There. Put your divine abilities to good ue.
>>33355415> Hex > goodYou jokester.>>33355337...Time for the sharkpool.I actually have notes on that. Goddess save me.Short version: Each dead soul comes before IT, a god/spirit/ancient good that judges the lives they lived and which they are to live once they pass beyond the veil back into the world of the living. Each soul may choose (within reason, i.e not breaking divine mandate) which kind of body they incarnate as, meaning that the massive suffering caused by gender disphoria in the real world is not really an issue. I hope that wasn't too offensive.BRB running for my life.
>>33355502That is surprisingly non offensive.
>>33355502I don't think anybody could be offended by that, except perhaps crazy fundamentalists.
>>33355502What would be breaking divine mandate?
>>33355502But you only just got backDon't run away
>>33355579It can't be helped, the Tumblerinas are merciless.
>all this comfort SanyaI'm all for not yelling at her, but she kind of fucked up and should have at least waved the teacher over before doing whatever she did.
>>33350294Nanoha actually is a combat instructor in StrikerS.I'd rather it not be her just to avoid any of the teachers being from the same franchise.
>>33355266>>33355502Update soon?Something to vote on, at least?
>>33355699In the next 4 hours probably.
>>33355748Oh, well, I guess I'll go to bed then.
>>33355699Yes indeed.>>33355579O-okay then!>>33355561Oh you know, the usual checks and balances thing that reincarnation is.>>33355553>>33355521Oh cool.
>>33355748This sounds like you have no faith in Hex's ability to obtain fast. Surely the update will only take an hour at most.Who am I kidding? Back to sleep for 2 hours, being woken up early sucks.
>>33355502Who gives a shit if it's offensive or not. This isn't goddamn Tumblr.Also pretty interesting.
>>33355939>implying people didn't mean that taking the question seriously instead of going 'tumblr get out' was what would be offensive, to anons.
>>33355979This is getting too meta for me
>>33356025That's offensive to me, anon.
>>33356025It's not too meta, you are just too stupid.
>>33356039Your FACE is offensive to me turbonerd.
>>33356039>>33356052Wew you got triggered hard!>>33356041Fite me, nigger irl and not online!
How many demons did Maria piss off with her jaunt?
>>33356096So many. Eriadne must be so mad at us!
>>33356096All the cute ones. They're mad jelly.
>>33356103> demonette challenges us to a cuteness contest for the sin of existing
>>33356113Hahahaha they stand no chance.
>>33356113We'd lose since we are not cute at all
>>33356124Buuut anon we are cutes agent on this plane.
>>33356124Or as smart or refined or beautiful as Lady Eriadne.;___;This is more fun than it has any right to be help.
We're playing Samwise Gamgee to Eriadne's Frodo Baggins, aren't we?
>>33356233> Eriadne> HalflingI can't.
>>33356233I'm actually okay with that. It could make for an interesting quest and dynamic.
>>33356233I never read those books. Someone please explain.
>>33356233What you're saying is that Eriadne is the actual protagonist?Is Evangelyne Gandalf?
>>33356233But we don't know shit about taters!
>>33356233Wasn't Frodo adopted into a nobles house?
>>33356298>>33356233> Sanya is the One Ring.
>>33356254He's suggesting that Eriadne is the star of the show, but we're co-starring, with the goal of supporting her.
>>33356311When do we get to throw her in a volcano?
>>33356254Frodo is the main character and the one tasked with carrying the One Ring to Mount Doom. Samwise, while part of central cast, is a secondary character to that.In other words, think of a book you've, and instead of playing as its MC, you play as MC's ally or friend.
>>33356314>>33356336I would think she's the one who is the ally to us, since she has supported us both times Maria fucked up.
>>33356311Who's Gollum then?
>>33356314>>33356336What's really important about anon's metaphor was that Sam was always the more competent one but had always looked up to Frodo, seeing him as his superior he could never catch up to.
>>33356254Spoiled rich kid gets tasked with saving the world, whines about their burden the entire way.Commoner is tasked with getting them there in one piece. Carries all the equipment, does the cooking, always has the rich kids back. Rich kid gets tricked into abandoning commoner and wanders into giant spider lair, commoner comes back for them and saves them from a giant spider like 20 times his size. Rich kid gets captured by orcs, commoner singlehandedly fights their way through an orc infested tower to free them. Rich kid decides to lie down and die cause their burden is so heavy, commoner picks them up and carries them bodily up a god damned mountain.
>>33356367It's possible we haven't met our Gollum analogue yet, if there is one at all
>>33356390>does the cooking,Cooking mastery intensifies.
I like our Sensing teacher. She's just the right mix of irresponsible and kind.
>>33356390Well, that would actually be a pretty interesting take on LotR's story.
>>33356437I don't think it's so much irresponsibility as Seeing so much shit that she knows there's a lot in the world she has to let pass.
>>33356449She certainly doesn't coddle her students. She's friendly, but if there's a fuckup she sorts it out and moves on.
>>33356449Although I would have preferred metaphysics, I gotta admit that this class is probably going to do more than anything else for curing any ridiculously self-sacrificing tendencies Maria might have.
Hex pls, it's been over an hour since you said there would be an update soon.
>>33356536Is your pattern recognition broken? Always add at least 3 hours to every estimate Hexer makes.
Sanya greeted us and agreed before we asked. Does that mean her future sense is always on?
>>33356619Maybe. Or she could be a quick study.She also ran away before the teacher showed up, the coward.
>>33356619It's not impossible that she's had training before, especially if she the one that caused us to go all crazy eyes
>>33356619That would make Maria's single victory at rock paper scissors with her kind of amazing.Though if that's all we earned, I feel a little ripped off.
>>33356619It also makes sense in a school perspective.
>>33356536>Hex>it's been over an hour>update soonYou have to understand Anon, Hex is a tiny loli that has to stack books on her seat so she can reach the keyboard and get's flustered by our lewd speculation.
>>33356673> literally first hour of first class> can already see a few seconds into the futureAnon please.>>33356686Or at being called cute.
Has Maria turned into a boy?
>>33356686Christ this is an adorable mental image.
>>33356714Eriadne could do it too. I don't see what's so impressive about seeing a second into the future.Combat magic class, we get told to spar with whatever spells we know, Seer the fuck out of everyone.
>>33356824>I don't see what's so impressive about seeing a second into the future.I hope you never get into a firefight.
>>33356841Please, the fire spell we used had an incantation that took longer than a second to say.
>>33356848Anyone have it? I like the sound of the spells.
>>33356857>"Fires of eternity, flames everlasting, bestow upon this humble child the gift of your ra--"[ge?]
>>33356866>>33356848Eriadne is in Meta. We should invent a spell together.
>>33356816Also the too-long sleeves make it difficult to type.
>>33356906Bring Evangelyne in too. She'd probably be more open to the idea of inventing a spell cause she's reckless.
>>33352110Oh hey. You just got tweeted.https://twitter.com/ConvictCyborg/status/487992548225339392
>>33356926I believe it
>>33356930Is this where we do something stupid and try to make a spell that says the invocation in one possible future and then bring it back to the present for instant spells?
>>33356977> inventing Vancian through timetravelThis literally cannot go wrong.
>>33356993Please don't abuse futuresight to predestine your success.
>>33356996Needs longer hair
>>33356996> moesonas...here we go a-fucking-gain.
How do controlled first awakenings work? Sensing teacher implied that not everyone in the class had had them. Do they just let kids go about classes as normal until the highly dangerous event happens on its own?You'd think they'd herd all the unawakened students into a special class and force it there before they go to any normal classes.
>>33356996Longer hair, I'd think. Other than that, right on!
>>33356996Wherever I am, I must also bully.
>>33356926>>33356996Fuck, cuteness over dose.
>>33357047>>33357023Like shoulder length or...?>>33357036Relax, guy, just practising. That's not really the style I'd like to use. It's ok to admit you'd want one.
>>33357091Yeah, shoulder length I think sounds good, Eriadne sounds like she would have long hair, probably to her back, but Maria is a guard's daughter, she needs a sort of girlish yet practical look
Reminder that Eva has twin-tails.No idea what color since it wasn't in her intro description. QMs need to remember to specify that stuff.
>>33357091Yeah, either just at it or just below the shoulderblade.
>>33357190>filenameIt doesn't matter
>>33356996And so history repeats itself.Angelic is reincarnated
>>33357125>>33357165I'd like to draw a panorama kind of deal of the characters but that shit ain't happening until I get better. Srs bsns comes with srs skls.>>33357042Maybe witches just aren't very responsible?
>>33357210What have I told you just the other thread?>Angelic v0.2 in the making
>>33357239>I'd like to draw a panorama kind of deal of the characters but that shit ain't happening until I get better. Srs bsns comes with srs skls.We also need proper descriptions from Hex
>>33357204Just making sure people know.>>33357210Angelic another person someone mistakes me to?
>>33357256That too. I mean, what colour of hair does Maria even have? Eriadne's white, twins are, what, black? Hex pls!
>>33357280Eye colors too. Does Eriadne have super-special draconic eyes?
>>33357265>Angelic another person someone mistakes me to?just shut up.
>>33357293Too much is unknown. Like how fit Maria is.
>>33357299Too spooky!>>33357301No you shut up!
>>33357293>Does Eriadne have super-special draconic eyes?Yes>She seems to be mostly paying attention to the room right now, and I notice that her eyes seem to shift colour. How did I not see that before? I bet she has so many stories to tell. Hmmmm. She was right. She really is *beautiful*, not cute. I wonder if anyone will ever call me beautiful or cute, well, my mother used to but that totally doesn't count, now does it?
>>33357265No, but you have unintentionally restarted the cycle.>QM becomes popular because he's generally a nice bloke>Pretty good writer, but slow as all heck>Gets slower as the fanbase becomes more supportive, due to neurosis and lack of confidence>Fanbase decides that the neurosis is cute>Fanbase creates a cult of personality, increasing the severity of the confidence issues>Spirals out of control until the QM becomes so neurotic and paranoid about posting that he vanishes entirelyWe're currently on stage 4.
>>33357280Maria turns out to be Chinese, Eriadne is an elf, Evangeline is black, the twins are incestuously gay and Sanya is a boy.Because fuck expectations.
>>33357342I've seen this happen multiple times and never thought of it in such clear terms.It is terrifying.
>>33357342Damn, that's pretty crazy.If it makes you feel better, I've been entertaining the thought of telling Hex to hurry the fuck up. This kind of slowness is fine with me since I have others things to do and ATOW is low priority quest for me.I mean, it is kind of entertaining but everything has its limits.
>>33357395It was inevitable.
>>33357416Well I don't know. Deculture's continued MGNQ pretty decently... kind of. Maybe he had more free time way back when?
>>33357397Yeah, but it's stage 6 which worries me.
>>33357434All right, what is stage 6?
>>33357342THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM THE MISTAKES OF HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT.There are two ways to break this repetition: Hex gits fast, or we start bullying.Do you have the strength of will to do what must be done? Tough love. It's for his own good. Repeat that as a mantra to get you through the tough times ahead.
>>33357397>If it makes you feel better, I've been entertaining the thought of telling Hex to hurry the fuck up.I am sure it will help a lot.
>>33357451QM vanishes, and without his guidance, the personality cult explodes out of control and he becomes some sort of mythological messiah figure for a few months.
>>33357471Considering how many are the devil and reviled, it will be a change of pace, really.
>>33357471Kinda like Jesus then! HAW HAW>>33357456Didn't say it would
>>33357280Hex was using this pic as Maria's art in the first thread
>>33357513Pls don't encourage lazy qms to use pictures instead of learning how to fucking describe shit.
>>33357513I just assumed her used random girl pics to have his posts pop out more. Huh.
>>33357528He's also been using the same two pics for Eriadne>>33349741>>33349761
>>33357560And for Evangelyne and Helena, some girl with braided white hair and a blonde nun loli respectively.And the sensing teacher looks like Fate from Nanoha.
>>33357341>>33357341It's fascinating how much characterization he crams in per thing described.
Aaaand we're past bump limit
>>33357636You doomed us all, Hex!
>>33357644I'm reminded of the last threads of Cyborg Convict all of a sudden
> Over 300 posts> 3 story postsHeeeeeeeexeeeeeeeeer!!!It's all right, we still love you.
>>33357746Don't blame him. This is all our fault.
>>33357766I blame him a little.
>>33357766Eh, this time it took over 14 hours though. 4 since he returned. That's not really 'spamming to autosage' territory.
>>33357746I blame him for this.It's getting beyond a joke.
>>33358185At least he's making threads frequently. And this pace is still far, far faster than some writers.
>>33358232Making threads frequently is pointless if they just consist of an opening post and then 500 posts of anons shipping and praising Hexer. All it really does is fuck over the hopes of archive readers.
>>33358296That can't be solved without providing less choices.
>>33358472It can be solved by Hexer getting fast
>>33358536That's not something that just happens.
>>33358550>That's not something that just happens.Like enlightenment it's a process.
>>33358232this is exactly what he did with CCQ and Hexer Queststart threads with a somewhat decent hourly/bi-hourly update rate, and as the threads go on, the updates take longer and just stop coming alltogether...HEX YOU LITTLE FAGGOTGET BACK TO WRITING BITCH
>>33358581Move all his writing to anon-kun, problem solved.
Sorry, had to step out and didn't bring my phone. Organization? No, never heard of it.>>33358581>HEX YOU LITTLE FAGGOT>>GET BACK TO WRITING BITCHIt shall be done.
>>33358605That only made things worse anon, its been more than a month and a half since there was an actual update to CCQ
>>33358619A lot of us would be a lot more understanding if you'd announce pauses like this, like you did earlier.As much as people like discussing this and that and loli romance and handholding, it gets, well, dull.As much as I like your upbeat attitude and pretty cool writing style, man... well, you know.
threads on page 8now its a race to see if he can update before it dies
>>33358605Then he just never updates at all.
>>33358619Kinda too late, thread is on autosage.C'mon Hex, I'm a tolerant man and I really want to let you off because you're a right decent bloke, but you're at the point when it stops being funny.
>>33357693>I will update in a bit people. Keep the thread bumped.>Thread died three days later.>That update was never posted.
>>33358738>but you're at the point when it stops being funny.he reached that before he started this quest...
>>33358718>>33358605Hex-sempai is baka! He forgot about us!
>>33358605Unfortunately Anon-kun is gangrenous bollocks.
>>33358738It wasn't funny at Thread 3. I can understand if something unexpected happens and he can't write a post but this is beyond ridiculous.
>>33358835Sure. All the quests around here are so much better quality.
>>33358691>update before it diesYeah, that'll totally happen.
>>33358852Not all no, but at least there are a few good ones here, and the site itself isn't worthless.
>>33358872There are a few good ones on akun. And they're both shitty sites in different ways.See: This thread being about to fall off the board.
[X] Yes. Attend the class as a listener, don't experiment further.[X] Seek out Sanya later on. I must comfort her.[X]Ask Eriadne what happened"I'm fine, Mistress. I will just watch if it is not too much trouble"."Of course not, Lady Maria. This class is all about attention after all". With that and a smile, she resumes her course through the class. The crowd around us thins out quickly.Eriadne seems unhappy."Are you sure you do not wish to return to your quarters?" Her big eyes seem to have settled on a deep blue shade, for once. "That's what I said!" Blast. I feel my cheeks colour slightly. Why must she always second-guess everything?! A second later, I admonish myself. Think, girl. You can't just flip off people like that."I mean… no.It's important to listen, isn't it? Uh. Thank you for being so concerned with me!"Eriadne's head snaps to the side and she stumbles for words."It is… it's only the right thing. Just make sure to stay safe". There is a barely noticable shake in her voice. I want to say something, but think better of it. I already strained her patience too much.The bell rings, and the students file out of the class. File, because the teacher -who is apperently called Mistress Leandra- is handing out sheets to everyone leaving. Mine only has a big High Dawnchant sigil and the words "memorize it" written on it. I'm not sure if that is good or bad. "I guess… see you?" Eriadne seems unwilling to leave. Well, of course, after the mess I made of things I wouldn't really trust myself either."I'll not get injured, promise!""What… Oh. Yes, I do expect you to take care." She turns ubruptly vanishing into the crowd.---The practice room is even deeper underground, lit by some sort of glowing tube. Maybe it's magic, maybe it's sparkwire, but I don't have much time to think at all as a lenght of wood flies towards my face, only my reflexes making me catch it in time,>cont, FUCK the limit

>>33358942[x] EnthusiasticMaria wants nothing more than to learn all the fighting and protect all the smiles especially Eriadne's.

wait a secondEva has Witch Combat, which is happening nowEriadne and Eva are both in MetaphysicsWhich class is Eriadne going to now? It would suck if we weren't in the same section as Eva for combat class.

>>33359686I really don't want the strong dragon-blood with "gifts" toward mind reading and mind speaking to go yandere.
If female dragonbloods already have mental abilities I'm not sure I ever want to fight a full dragonborn sorcerer head-on.Now we know how the nobility stays in power though. They're simply better than the commoners. So kinda like Exalted.

GAME OVER, MAN. GAME OVER!
>>33360131>>33360134>>33360152We have an hour.
>>33359919I wonder if there are any nobility without dragon blood? I imagine anyone who gets to that level promptly marries the first dragon blooded noble who will have them.
>>33360483I'd imagine there are, but the mainstream seems to be getting dragon blood ASAP.
Don't forget to archive this before it dies
"Mistress, yes Mistress!"I bow, stomping the butt of the rod against the checkerboard pattern of the worn-down marble floor before standing at attention."Oh~?" The instructer regards me calmly with her lilac eyes, unashamed at the way her skin-tight suit shows off her body. I couldn't ever wear something this emberassing!"So you've had training, isn't that right?""Mistress, yes, Mistress"."Good. I've already got high hopes for you. Now go get changed and we can start". ...she isn't going to expect me to wear clothes like she does. Please tell me she isn-- aah, do you EVER even LOOK at what's before you, me? The room is filled with other girls, all dressed in the same wide white pants and shirt with long sleeves. the combination held in place by a big blue sash. Not quite unlike home then, I guess, though everything looks much cleaner and… warrior like, that might be the word. I dutifully slip behind a foldable paper screen, laying off my dress and putting on the training suit, hoping silently that I won't emberass myself any more. Ouch. Seems like my Pact Sigil has become a bit tender since this morning. Must be the magic use.My hands play over the smooth wodden lenght, the feeling at once thrilling and calming. This is something I know. Something I can do. Weapons are honest. They don't lie, they don't play tricks and they treat you just as well as you treat them. If only everything were so uncomplicated. With a sigh I step out, placing my folded-up dress on a low wodden bench standing against the wall.At first I'm surprised at seeing Evangelyne already in heated combat with a tall, rather mature woman before my attention is torn away by someone tapping on my shoulder."Hey, gloomy girl, you look like you could use some exercise". The newcomer grins at me. Ah blast, might as well rather than, as Mistress Choshalle said "grow into the ground". Did she say it like that? Ah, no matter.1/?
"If you give me the honour I shall accept". The ritual words come easily as I bow, and she does the same before stepping exactly four steps back."Ah, I see you've already teamed up". Teacher, stop being so silent, you're scaring me!She ignores my scandalized look -did she even see it- and counts."Three… two… one… DUEL!2, 7, 10, 9 = 28 vs 10, 7, 4, 8 = 29I leap into action, my feet swiftly carrying me towards my opponent(4,3), the rod crashing against her guard before we jump apart."Good!" I move again,but this time she anticipates (5,5) me, my arm hurting from the impact before I peform a sweeping slash towards her legs (5,1) that leaves her stumbling. I press my atdvantage, ephoric, and the next blow manages to clip her arm. Ha! This is too eas-- (5,10) I gasp, my vision swimming as I'm hit in the side, though I react on instinct and manage to hit her hand (9,1) which makes her drop her rod with a yelp."Okay, that's enough. Both of you, get over here".My oponnent grins at me, green eyes dancing."You pack a mean punch for such a little one". ...she's not angry? Well, my instructors were similar, but those were men and I don't think I ever managed to hit them quite as hard.> tbc next thread, please wait warmly and excuse today's terribleness
