OPENING>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F468us4qCUEPreviously: Cerulean arrived upon a mysterious island after a mission to rescue shipwrecked personnel had gone awry due to mysterious humanoid monsters.Meeting the natives, Cerulean found aid in the form of a humanoid monster by the name of Kurojo, a tusked Kahkori of Kakarkiko island. With his and his uncle's help, she had been reunited with Marine, her friend from training and childhood.After killing a fierce foe reviled by Kahkori, Cerulean fell ill, and was given a cure by Kurojo. In the village, she learned of a strange ability and found herself able to utilize "Aura."Journeying with Kurojo, Cerulean and Marine make it to the joint city of races amongst the island chain. It is there in Raguna city that she fights to the death with a rambunctious Smolderan.Slipping out of her right mind, she executes her foe with absolute certainty, earning her some recognition with a Smolderan leader and the right to engage in a hunting exam at his request.Cerulran takes a test with another species known as the Araraki, an infallibly polite and timid representative of her people. Upon completing the hunt, they are put through a naming ceremony and engage in some festivities, taking a somewhat heavier turn as Akabaron, Vi-Smohkan of the Smolderan, goes over his deal with Cerulean.A ship made through the efforts of the three great races...Known characters>http://pastebin.com/k2xnqqvBMonster Index>http://pastebin.com/wxwgrCqbCharacter Sheet>http://pastebin.com/7CJx3gq1Twitter:>https://twitter.com/AoPHquestLore>http://pastebin.com/vy0a6Z9r
It's been more than a month since Akabaron left to Smelda. In fact, it's been more like two, maybe even getting close to three? You and Marine have been occupying yourselves by refining new and old techniques and keeping up with your own shock therapy.Marine giggles through it. You don't quite get it, she's a water type like you. It shouldn't really ever stop hurting, but she's not even bothered anymore. You've attained more mastery over the energy ball, capable of sending off smaller ones that arer noticeably less draining. Seralana's helped you out a lot with training control. You asked her who those dark Araraki were in the moments that the two of you were alone. She's told you that they're the ones that don't fit in with the rest of the Araraki. The ones that can't control a particular thirst. Gluttons.Yet when you asked her why she had powers like them, she became quite sullen.“Mother-Father was one. Elder save from them.” She admits. “No tell. Please.”Promising that you won't, you're just glad that she's being more open with you now.With each day of conditioning and training you feel that home is a bit closer, even though it's still so far.Hao's preparations come to something of a fruition. Between your and his efforts there are enough volunteers for the crew of the hunt and a boat fit with what Hao referred to as “Imperial Impaler,” a large mechanism fitted with barbs and a very real corkscrew effect to it. Should the beast attempt to clamber onto the boat, it'll receive a frightful wound, likely even the killing blow.Yet you refuse to begin without Akabaron, and you're curious as to what's taken him so long. With Hao's permission and a small personal guard with Nala included, you take a ship bound for Smelda to see what that old cat's been up to... Could they really replicate the repel technology?
>>33634727What rank is Energy Ball at and what's the stam cost?Rank 1? 2?Stam 10%, right?
>>33634760>You don't quite get it, she's a water type like you.She's, uh, Ground type too. She's got complete immunity to Electricity.
I do sort of want to figure out what that araki stuff was all about.Like, things like "why" and "what".
>>33634829They're addicts, basically. They may have either misrepresented the tenants of their race's teachings or abandoned it entirely.
>>33634727Shit, Prof, what's going on? SO many threads...Please don't stop~
>>33634816Sounds like it's higher than rank 1, and it has variable fire settings like Ice Ball does.
>>33634760So what do we call Seralana in public? Friend?I get that names a super important here, but we have to call her SOMETHING.
>>33634828Ceru's not familiar with the mudkip line, since it's not native.
>>33634872You HAVE checked the twitter, right?
>>33634860but likeCouldn't they have just stolen one of those milktea things?I mean, we killed one of 'em when they kidnapped us.
>>33634879"Hey you." "Araraki."I've spent years talking to friends without ever actually using their names. You just get their attention.
>>33634931Presumably, the fact that they're 'gluttons' means it's either not enough or it tastes better to eat directly from the source.
>>33634975I guess I'm just criticizing their target choice is all.
>>33634975Or from something alive.
After a week's voyage, you hear that this should be the day that you arrive at Smelda. Hao's guards stand around the ship. They wear the clothes of dock workers and shiphands, even Yasake. You had asked them why, and they quite simply said “This is a place that's easier to blend into than stand out. You and Marine were given clothes to do the same, wearing your armor underneath dirty shiphand garments, and peasant's clothes.Heading out onto deck with the familiar rocking of a ship that's left the island swiftcurrent, you smell the air, it reeks of ash, sulfur and more ash. The sky around this place is dark and grey. In the distance you can see fumes pouring out of the top of mountains, orange-yellow and red veins running out along the sides.Could it be? You'd only read about them, Volcanoes. This is the first time you've ever seen one! Something in you suffers a small thrill of childish glee. It's kind of breathtaking. Or rather it would be if you could spare the breath. Yasake hands you a cloth, “Put it over your mouth. The ash of their mountains is toxic, even if they're able to tugh it out, it doesn't mean that we need to as well.”> Turn it down. You'll be able to pass for a smolder this way. Less standing out, right?> Wear it. You don't want to get poisoned after all.
>>33635092>[x] Wear it. You don't want to get poisoned after all.
>>33635092> Wear it. You don't want to get poisoned after all.There's really no reason why we wouldn't stick to safety precautions?
>>33635092>> Wear it. You don't want to get poisoned after all.
>>33635092> Wear it. You don't want to get poisoned after all.Though, actually, it's just a cloth. It might not do much at all.I wish we had some kind of rebreather still. We lost that shit.
>>33635253Cloth helps. It's a filter. You don't need any complicated technology to keep from inhaling ash.
>>33635092> Wear it. You don't want to get poisoned after all.We have white fur. We're going to stand out either way.What KIND of toxic is this? The kind that builds up, or the kind that can be resisted?
>>33635334well, yeah, it helps with ash. Not poison gas though.I am sad they don't just have gasmask stalls around. You'd think they'd do that.
>>33635409The only environmental hazard mentioned was the ash. There might be poison gas, but it's probably not a constant ambient hazard.
>>33635409Smolder aren't bothered by it. And this isn't a place for tourists.
>>33634727What Pokemon is the green guy supposed to be?
>>33635092> Turn it down. You'll be able to pass for a smolder this way. Less standing out, right?
>>33634727Fuck yeah AOPHQ.
>>33635440Obviously, it should be.
Wait a minute. They live on a volcano. Where is their rich volcanic soil? Even if they can't farm in the ash filled environment, they can ship that out to another island and farm there.
>>33634760>Imperial ImpalerYou know not what you have wrought upon my sides.
>>33635707They may not be allotted any territory outside of their islands.
>>33635781Floating farmsSelling FertilizerSelling volcanic soil(dangerous to do, but gives a big boost to economy)Renting land for farming purposes
>>33635637The idea of smolder tourist industries makes me happy inside.
>>33635882You seem to be under the presumption that anyone knows volcanic soil is useful for farming.Or that there are any farms at all.
>>33635882>Carnivorous people.>Monsters in the water.>Bloodthirsty inhabitants.
>>33635882My friend you seem to forget, the smolders are carnivores. Period. Farming is worthless to them. They NEED meat to live.
>>33636152Raise plants to feed to docile meat beasts.
>>33636016They're going to be so pissed when they find out, though. Generations of starvation, with the solution right under their feet. Doesn't even matter if they can't eat it: They can sell it to Kahkori and tuskless, who would enjoy better berry wines.>>33636195this as well>>33636052>>33636152Aren't they Omnivores, with a preference for meat?>Monsters in the waterUse shallow water, create artificial lakes/beaches, etc. Can sharpedos jump out of the water?
>>33636195>inb4 the Araraki war on the smolder for converting plants into animals.
>>33636152Huge chunks of the crops grown go to feeding livestock. Farming wouldn't be worthless to carnivores.
>>33636233>The Araraki know>They're trying to kill everyone before they realize and form actual alliances
>>33636234But would a harmless herbivore be able to live in the volcanic wasteland?
>>33636265The araraki are going to kill everyone.
>>33636267With a canon turret protecting them? maybe
>>33636225If they are omnivorous, Dran sure hasnt written them with any of those tendencies. Honestly their desire for meat probably meats that eating plants is a RARE thing at best for smolders.>>33636234>>33636195>Toxic environs.>Other animals.Anons, you are fucking hilarious.
Sorry about the delay. Had to hear the precursor to a family intervention. No drugs, just bitches.
>>33635092>>[X] Turn it down. You'll be able to pass for a smolder this way. Less standing out, right?
>>33636382Man why you gotta step on a guys toes like that Dran? If a man wants his bitches let him have his bitches.
>>33636382I thought you was a pimp who could handle the bitches. Are you telling me that you are unable to handle the bitches?
>>33636398It's about a lady in my family being a bitch.Almost done writing.
>>33636317If the smolders evolved to handle it, some other animals could.Or they could invent air filters and create extremely vulnerable livestock facilities that are constantly destroyed in civil wars.
>>33636424I would seem that Dran's pimp hand is not as strong as he likes us to think.
>>33636441Clearly you need a stronger pimp hand.
The land is desolate and grey. The sun is obscured by ash and smog, casting this place into a dismal light. There's not a single green tree, but their withered ashen frames remain, marking where a forest may have once stood. The port here is barely anything to speak of, just an outcropping of rocks with houses made of metal refuse. Rusted is the dominating color amongst this bleak land of black and gray.Of note, there are a few larger structures that remind you of the warehouses back home in both their size and lack of complexity.As you finish fixing the cloth to your face, Yasake waves his arm as though drawing back a curtain, “Welcome to the Isle of Smelda, one of the three Smolder homes.” There's a sarcastic drip to his voice that you ignore. You and Marine step off the ship, with the disguised guards, a few staying behind to haul the meat transported upon the ship. The lifeline of the Smolder. Yasake warns that you all make yourselves scarce lest you see the feeding frenzy that is the first Smolders come to eat.“Like samehadas” He likens them to.The disembark is just as he'd warned. There are already Smolder gathering. Some young with still a scrap of pride in them as they push out their chests, snarling at the lot of you as you pass. Others are just weary elders, come out looking for a scrap to eat. Some of the younger ones stand beside these ones as though to guard. Likely, they're looking out for their parents and grandparents.Some meat's thrown overboard into the crowd and it dissolves into mild fighting that's broken up with mighty roars of what you might call overseers or some kind of civic guard.You look back, eyes lingering a bit too long and see a mighty female end a fight with a roar as she takes a haunch of monster meat for herself. You content yourself with the thought that it must be for her cubs.Yeah...
Your party walks through the port village, Wagons pulled by mighty males tromp on through. In an off-the-table trade, Yasake hands over some especially shiny bone sticks that make the male's eyes glitter. Shoving them into his belt, Yasake says something and you're all pulled by him to the next town, rumbling over rocky roads and seeing the vast, emptiness that is their lands.Geysers here and there gush with mighty steam that scalds the very air, breaches in the ash and earth give way to hot volcanic veins. There's a chill further inland as you draw away from the warm oceanic winds, yet the natural heat of this place seems to comfort everyone else. This place is better than the Ararakian wastes at the very least.Eventually you come to vast bubbling lakes of tar and pitch, large pockets exploding with the intense smells of the subterranean. It's beyond there that you see a city. Rising high into the air, wrought of steel and blood and piercing into the sky beyond the volcanic cloud. “This is the prime city of Smelda.” Yasake informs you, “I've been here many times before by order of my lord.”As you come close, You see scrap-houses littering the outskirts of the great spire.“That's... unusual.” Yasake mumbles dangerously low, staring up at a great frame positioned outside of the city...As you near, there's a a large gathering outside, many other carts and cartpullers like yours drawing in with supply and material in the back.“What is it?” You ask, keeping your voice low. “If I'm not mistaken... The top of that is a keel.”The Smolders are building a ship of steel.You need to find Akabaron.
>>33636563Well, the metal-boat cat is out of the bag.Turns out they discovered this stuff entirely without our input. Huh.
do you think they found wreckage of ship we were supposed rescue awhile back?
>>33636670Akabaron did they his island was held the most brilliant minds of his people.Clearly he was not lying.
>>33636680The index isn't important for making metal boats at all, though.It's important for repel tech, which is entirely unnecessary to the actual boat making. That just gives it out-of-island capacity.Which means the secret of traveling between the islands was in the smolder's heart all along.
>>33636697They managed to decrpit our index. Fuck
>>33636697I dunno, it sank PRETTY hard.
>>33636697>>33636723That would give them the structure, but not the blends of alloys and formulae for paint, if they can even make paint.>>33636712Just travel between islands is plenty, going by >>33635781
>>33636778This isnt a warship. They dont need to paint it. All it needs to do is get them to the mainland, then they will disassemble it and take the metals with them to wherever they settle.
>>33636812The paint is for rust protection. I'm sure there's a pokemon/monhun alternative, though. Can Ludroth mane adhere to metal?
>>33636882Again it depends upon how long they are going to be using the ship for. If its for like two trips then they wont give a shit.
>>33636778Yeah, travel between islands is a lot.And it was in the smolder's the entire time.
>>33637000Ok then how the fuck did they manage to hide this knowledge from the authorities for 200+ years? Like srsly you would think that being able to build warships like this would warrant some attention.
>>33637108Obviously they only needed a little nudge and encouragement to get them going.Like all "It was in your heart all along" scenarios.
The city is great and vast, though your party makes it through quickly. Yasake's sense of urgency carries you all forward, striking down Smolders that attempt to stop any of you with blindingly swift strikes. The guards at your rear hide the bodies before returning to the group, keeping up the pace for a time.“We must speak with Akabaron and hear what is going on. This is treason.”“Treason?” You ask, you've heard it before. Once in passing.“Offense to the empire. This threatens everything we've accomplished.”“But what about the hunt, the ship?”“It would have been under our control. As it is now, we need to take him and return to our ship. Force him to stand trial and seize the shipyard. Though it could be too late if there is work being done in their other colonies.” Yasake bites back, “How could they have learned this?”> Break away from Yasake with Marine. You'll find Akabaron first.> Stay with Yasake. He knows what he's doing.> Turn on Yasake.... You'll have to take him and the guards by surprise... Perhaps freeze them in their tracks?> (other)
>>33637130We gave them two months. Im pretty sure the knowledge needed to go from the Golden Age of Sailing to the late 1800's take a LITTLE bit more time than that.> Break away from Yasake with Marine. You'll find Akabaron first.
>>33637151>[x] Break away from Yasake with Marine. You'll find Akabaron first.
>>33637151>[x] Break away from Yasake with Marine. You'll find Akabaron first.maybe we should leave Marine with Yasake, to sabotage his efforts
>>33637177Err sorry the Greentext was for >>33637151
>>33637151> (other)>Tell Yasake that Lord Hao told us he already knew this was happening.Maybe this will stop him from trying to seize Akabaron.
>>33637151but can't we just use one of these for our hunting ship?I don't want you guys going to war over this.we might have to go find akabaron and warn him if yasake insists on going through with this.
>>33637244>Most trusted guard and servant.>Not already being aware of such a contingency plan.Also, anyone else realize that Yasake is most likely gay?
If we find Akabaron first, we can demand our gear before doing anything to help them.>>33637244There's also this. We can also explain to him that the ship building is fine: If we succeed at the hunt, then there is no need to maintain the old system.>>33637266If we comandeer it, with a retinue of Kahkori, it might calm the Tuskless. Akabaron owes us that much, at least.
>>33637151>>33637244This.Although we don't know how exactly Hao would react to knowing that metal ships are made, it is true that he had already expected it. We can't say exactly what Hao would want done, but he may want to put off a war from happening as far back as possible. Taking Akabaron in may exacerbate things.Tell Yasake these things. It might be best to tiptoe right now. Even if he took in Akabaron, like he said, it might already be too late. The knowledge may have already spread.
>>33634760>With Hao's permission and a small personal guard with Nala includedProf, is Nala with us? Or did you actually mean Nala?
Consensus seems to be "Wait, are you serious?"And then going and warning akabaron.
>>33637151>> Break away from Yasake with Marine. You'll find Akabaron first.Shit, run run run.
>>33637381Fuck me, She was supposed top be there. Fuck it, she aint here. Would require me rewriting a good part of that.
>>33637151>[X] Break away from Yasake with Marine. You'll find Akabaron first.
>>33637460SOOOOwhere is she? She was definitely on the same boat, so she went straight to Akabaron, right?
>>33637538We're going to assume this then. Yes. Yes. That works.Thank you.
>>33637558greaaaat. At least we don't need to warn Akabaron. The only reason to go find him ourselves now would be to demand the Gear back before he's tried as a thief as well.
You step back, wary of Yasake and his recent track of thought. No, this isn't good... “If you do something to Akabaron, it could mean war. Hao doesn't want that.”Yasake stares at you, low and steady, “Lord Hao,” He corrects, “Looks out for the commonwealth of Raguna, and the Khakori. The Smolder threaten this with the mere knowledge. If their intentions are not just, which I must assume that they are not, then we must cut off their head and strike before they finish such a project. What worries me most is the size of the ship in the yard. It's of such a size that it could never outmaneuver our ships... What then.”“I'll find out.” You say, staring right back at him. “Marine and I will go talk to him. If you leave it to us, we'll find out for you.”Yasake narrows his eyes upon you, obtrusively blowing air through the black cloth upon his cere. “I will allow this then. Meet us in the outskirts by their curfew or we'll come looking.” He rises up, waving to the guards, “With me.” They break away, leaping through the structures effortlessly.With just you and Marine, you'll need to find a way to locate Akabaron...> Go to what looks most like a palace.> Head straight to the yard.> Ask the closest Smolder.> Go to the slums.
>>33637558>>33637622wait, so do we need to do a revote?>>33637711nevermind...
>>33637711>> Head straight to the yard.Akabaron will be overseeing this personally.
>>33637711> Head straight to the yard.Do we need to reveal ourselves?
>>33637711> Head straight to the yard.
>>33637711>it could never outmaneuver our shipsIt's not gonna be a super warship!anyway, akabaron will be at either the yard or the palace. 50/50 chance.
>>33637711> Head straight to the yard.> Ask the closest Smolder. AT the yard.What was the thing Akabaron told us to tell any Smolder once before? Back when we left for the Ordile hunt?
>>33636317Docile poison types?
>>33637711>[X] Head straight to the yard.
>>33637875>Docile>Poison typesPick one.
>>33637711>[x]Go inna yards
>>33638015Okay then.>Poison types.>Safe to eat
The secret is the boat is just a giant fishing boat.Because the smolder really do want to eat fish, it's just water is bullshit and they don't have boats.
>>33637809To answer your question>Je reap chakuen ojur des lan vize des driens.>>33638046You forgot to add,>to non poison types.
>>33638120>it's just water is bullshitMy fucking sides in SOOOO many more ways than one.
>>33638148Ah, there we go. I couldn't find it in the thread I thought it was at. When did Akabaron tell us this?
>>33638120Like those crab cages? Didn't think you could get more extreme than the Discovery channel portrayals.
>>33638148Farm antidote berries, make berry wine, serve with meat. Become poison meat France. Raise And consume fire snails as escargot
>>33638247Its hidden in the rage of the thread after the yellow shit storm, like halfway down.
>>33638257Deadlier Catch. Watch out for kinglers
>>33638298You do realize that your body doesnt digest very well if it is trying to fight off dying right? SO every meal would become ludicrous just to get basic daily nutrients, if any nutrients at all.
>>33638362>One claw grew massively and as hard as steel. It has 10,000-HP strength. However, it is too heavy.
>>33638362>Some days, you make it big. You come back with enough food to feed the island and then some.>Other days, you could swallow enough water to kill yourself thrice over, but still get barely a claw for your trouble
>>33638362Is that show still around?
>>33638389Marinate in antidote berries before cooking. Farm fire types too.
Smolder deadliest catch. Soon to be canon.
>>33638468I would totally watch this. Or read some pastebins of it.
>>33638566First episode ends back on the Smolder Isles with a hungry and soaking wet Smolder Sailor engaged in a deathmatch with whoever suggested the idea in the first place.
Figures the smolder thread would get fucked by irl.
>>33638721Im just kind of worried that Dran wont finish this part of the quest if he get delayed for long enough, or will do so BADLY.
You and Marine head for the yard. It's the largest other thing besides the citadel of metal they have constructed here. You can see it from just about anyway from the street so long as that structure isn't in the way.Once there, you see many strong and young Smolder firing off their flame to temper steel, cut out sections. And plenty of other forge-work with their bare claws. The beat of hammers is deafening and the thundering cries of directors and taskmasters.You stand at the edge, barbed fences holding back the potentially unsavory.You and Marine find a moment to hop over when one of them isn't looking, only to be seen by another wary party.They challenge you in Smolder tongue, that nasally and harsh speak.Taken aback you try to remember the words that Akabaron had told you so long ago... “Je reap chakuen ojur des lan vize des driens.” The Smolder snorts, flame bursting from their nostrils, the clash of metal on metal beating now inside your head. He says something in smolder and you get the feeling that he's asking who you came for. “Vi-Smohkan Akabaron.”Nodding, he leads you through the work. The area's a complete construction zone with countless Smolder participating in this project. You can feel the hope welling within so many of them, as well as the gnawing hunger that pains them deep down. So many of them are gaunt, in scraps or even entirely naked. Their ribs cling to their skin, emaciated bellies despite strong arms. These are the ones that work the hardest, that believe the most in what they're doing.It's troubling actually. Being able to feel these things. These people have a hope for the future.They're different from Kahkori that are so well developed, minding more trivial things, or even the Araraki that are all unified by a singular belief. These are a desperate people.If this fails, if they can't do this to help themselves... Then they're broken.So much is staked on this.
>>33638764it gets worse, sadpanda is being butchered
>>33638880Wait, what. What's happened.
You meet Akabaron within a tent. He still wears his armor, visor down. You hear him take a single snort of air and turns his head, saying something in Smolder tongue.“I had told you they would be arriving soon.” Nala says, standing near, bearing no helm, yet wearing her green-scaled armor.“Indeed.” He says something and the Smolder that brought you here leaves quickly after a salute.Akabaron stands firm. There's no chair in this tent and you can feel the fatigue within his fierce armor. “Your impatience has cost us. Hao will learn of our work before it is ready.”> Apologize.> Demand he return your index.> Ask him what he has in mind for the ship.> (Other)
>>33638897Fakku/wani is getting tons shit removed left and right, they're freaking out over on /a/ >>33638898> Apologize.How are we going to deal with this is what's important right now.> Ask him what he has in mind for the ship.

>>33639007Eh, it's fine. The point is to manage this event successfully to get the skills.
>>33639007yeah, I don't like the mystery boxes.

>>33638898>[x] Demand he return your index.Well, fuck you too, old man. Shouldn't have stolen what wan't yours.
>>33639007>Coulda got Ice Beam to rank 4 (6 after apply freezer array)>Coulda upgraded Water Gun to 6 and Ice Shards to 4 (6 after apply freezer array) for a rank 6 Icicle Gun>Coulda upgraded Icy Wind to 7 and had 4SP leftover>Coulda upgraded Psybeam to 5>Coulda got the enhanced Aura training, which might have possibly led to Aura Sphere, and had 4SP leftover>Coulda got the Gunner skillCoulda done lots of shit that was actually good.
>>33638898>>33639152Yeah, actually Prof, I'm curious too. Since you forgot about Nala, what's the explanation now for how the situation came to this? Just elaborate a bit on it to fix the errors.
> Demand he return your index.You'd best start explaining, Akabaron.Be prepared for a spiel about how his poor race has got nothing left, this is their last chance to.better their lives, boohoo sob story and ordile tears. No, this is personal. Very personal.
>>33639175It's in these sorts of scenarios where we figure out which anons here actually has any ability at thinking straight and which ones lose composure easily.
>>33638898>> Apologize.> Ask him what he has in mind for the ship.
>>33639182Nala slipped off the ship and ran ahead. She's strong and wouldn't need to be carted through her homeland.She was also unaware of exactly what Akabaron was doing. Easier to lie that way. Akabaron was so focused on the project that no informant was ever sent to let her know to avoid drawing attention to Smelda.
>>33638898> Apologize.> Ask him what he has in mind for the ship.>Je reap chakuen ojur des lan vize des driensSo, Prof. What does this mean?
>>33639239>Waaa you stole my index.>I'm literally Mosesing my people from tyranny you little cunt.>WAAAA MY INDEX
>>33639314So, uh...>>33639281Are the Kahkori British, the Smolders Americans, and the Araraki some random British colony? We gonna see the Smolder dumping berry tea out into sea anytime soon?
>>33639314Let him keep the repel tech if he wants. WE NEED that index to id ourselves to any hunting parties/the gate guards. Oh and its our map.
>>33639281Akabaron, you fool. The hell are you doing blaming Ceru?>>33639314It's not about the Index itself, it is about a critical breach of trust that stands in the way of any continued cooperation.At this point, I think Marine is actually fine with leaving her gear with them. The problem is that they should have asked. Maybe when Ceru isn't looking.
>>33639355the smolders are Krogan and Akabaron is Wrex
>>33639281Ah, thanks for clarifying.>>33639373He's not really blaming Ceru, I think. He's just bluntly stating what the situation is. I don't even think he's angry at all. He's tired, but there isn't any aggression in his demeanor and words.
>>33639398Oh, I know. I was the one who brought up the comparison in the first place. I'm just making up more comparisons.
Honestly, we were supposed to be setting up the base boat with hunt money, so this whole metal thing is a big surprise to us.Couldn't have expected this, sorry akles.
>>33639483Yeah, he changed plans on us. Realized that he didn't need us anymore.
>>33639483We're not actually paying for the boat. Its construction is being sponsored by Lord Hao.We just went hunting to get 'equipment' and gain trust.
>>33639314>Betrays out trust, even going as far as to take it by force by drugging us and what not.>O-oh, so you did it for your people, who destroyed their own lands from a lack of responsibility, got tricked and used as pawns by Kahkoris to fight Ararakis, all of which have nothing to do with us and we don't care aboutDo you expect ANYONE, not just Ceru, to just stand there and accept that? The Smolders got into that situation from their own stupidity, let them come up with their own solution to get out or die trying. But if that involves using us, or our stuff without permission, then it becomes personal. I'd like to see him come up to the Dome and beg on his knees in front of Gionvanni and the leaders to 'please spare some tech for my poor, stupid brutish people'It's like the typical trailer wife getting beaten by her abusive husband, but can't leave him because she loves him too much.
>>33639514I don't think he's stopped trying to help us. He's just trying to come up with a way to help his own people without relying on the charity of an unknown people. Even we're not absolutely sure we can bring aid back from the Dome to these people, you know.>>33639531>Do you expect ANYONE, not just Ceru, to just stand there and accept thatYes. Annoyance is acceptable, but Ceru's pretty receptive to the plight of the people on these islands. It doesn't take much to be understanding of what these people are prepared to do to save their nations, especially after witnessing how desperate they all are. Akabaron isn't even directly betraying us nor have we been given the notion that he's planned to stop helping us get home.
>>33639517yeah, but the original akaplan was save up for a boat as best we could over as long as it takes.We had a break in the "buy/get a boat" situation though and were coming to tell him. Bad idea in retrospect, but good idea at the time.
>>33639617>My hubby beats me, but I know it's because he wants the best for me, so I'm gonna continue supporting him and try to change myself for him!
>>33638898>[X] Apologize.>[X] Ask him what he has in mind for the ship.
>>33639531>>33639665the obvious answer is to be angry about the one thing but apolagetic about the other thing.They're two different issues entirely.
>>33638898> Demand he return your index.Show strenght, that's always good. His lack of communication and being an ass put him in this situation.
>>33639617Just because something can be tolerated does not mean it is forgiven or forgotten.Still, in this case it is very similar to Seralana doing her own thing during the Narga hunt: we can accept it now, but if someone had died because the Index was lost or due to the investigation, suddenly it's not so fine.
>>33639773Uh, yeah. That's what I just said.
>>33639617>>33639773The only thing on our Agenda is 'get back to the Dome in one piece', not 'I've got to help the Smolders/Araraki break free from the oppressive Kahkori rule!' All the races are trying to use us as pawns, the less we get involved with them, the better. Why should we care for the state of their people? Why should we help them? No fucking reason, stop trying to be whiteknights, these aren't sidequests like an RPG, the only reward we'll get is realizing we got played like a fiddle at the end, and getting them onto Dome-levels of technology.
>>33639824You're pretty much alone on this. You're as bad as the anon who wants to go off into the wild forever.
>>33639824The only ones the tech matters to are the smolders. If they can survive life on the mainland more power to them.
>>33639791sorry, I'm failing a bit at being coherent.What Akabaron did is not enough to make him our enemy. It WAS enough to make any sort of cooperation very difficult, when he can and will inconvenience us for the sake of his people. He doesn't trust us, nor is he willing to get into our good graces.Akabaron failed to make the ship in time, and now war could erupt. What the hell are we supposed to entrust him with?When I say it's similar with Seralana, I mean that the same arguements can be levelled at her, it's just that nobody seems to want to do that. She SORTA earned Ceru's trust with the assassination thing, but there is no reason for anyone else in the group to trust her aside from Ceru's word.All of these people are terrible at working together.
>>33639964>All of these people are terrible at working together.Well the up coming war will see to that, one way or another.
>>33639964>All of these people are terrible at working together.Pretty much why I think a war is coming up. Even if the Smolder end up being able to make boats of their own to leave these islands.
>>33639964>Akabaron failed to make the ship in timeHe wasn't even supposed to be making a ship. He was supposed to working on a way for ships to get across the ocean, which he supposedly was going to do with Repel. WE were supposed to be supplying a ship in the deal, and we practically succeeded at that task, even if it is just a work in progress right now.Really if not for him changing the plan and going off on his own our visit here would be nothing but good news for everyone.
“I'm sorry.” You bow your head before the tired old Smolder. “You were taking a long time with no word.” You raise your head and look up at Akabaron as he looks down on you. His eyes like gentle red coals through the visor of his helm, one near dead and the other quite alive.“It is forgiven. I am sorry if I come off as a cranky old fool. I have heard as much from the other Vi-Smohkans. If I were still feeling as spry in my younger days...” He shakes his head, a subtle, bitter laugh, “I'd be the Grand Smohkan.”“Where is Yasake now?”“What are you going to do?” Marine butts in, “Yasake said that this could start a war.“We don't want you going to war. If you hurt Yasake-” You says, lowering your eyes.“I will turn myself in if I must.” Akabaron says, closing his eyes in contemplation.Nala leans to him, her eyes filling with surprise,” Vi-Smohkan, you can't! If you do-”“If we kill Hao's favorite pet, it will mean the wrath of the empire upon us. If I can buy enough time for the Arc to be completed, or at the very least make my case known, then I'll happily lose my head.” Akabaron sighs heavily, “One less hungry mouth to feed. For the good of us all.”> What will you do? What will you say?> “Go then, he'll be waiting outside of the city.”> “I can't let you do that... Let me talk to Yasake. I'll make him understand.”> (Other)
>>33640111Hell, it would have been a big collaborative effort between all races, Smolder provides shielding, Araraki provides the ship, and the Kahkori provides the crew.But nooooo. Wrex had to go get his own ideas.Why would our indexes even have info on how to make metal ships?
>>33640118> “I can't let you do that... Let me talk to Yasake. I'll make him understand.”everyone is so close to getting what they want and getting out of this powder keg of a treaty/alliance and all Yasake has to do to avoid ruining it all and starting a war is to not light the powder keg and keep his mouth shut.
>>33640118>> “I can't let you do that... Let me talk to Yasake. I'll make him understand.”We were literally coming here to tell you good news. Hao wants you all to go away just as much as you want to be gone.
>>33640118>[x] Hey bro can I have my stuff back please?
>>33640152I have the feeling it didn't have the info on how to make metal ships, but had the info that ships could be made of metal, which is what the Kahkori didn't want the Smolder learning.
>>33640118>> “I can't let you do that... Let me talk to Yasake. I'll make him understand.”I still want to ask for our index back though. And give him the news of the collaborative travel project. We told him we'd find a boat.then be on our way.
>>33640118It really didn't have to be this way.>"Go then, he'll be waiting outside of the city.">"Can you at least give one Gear back?"heh, this reminds me of China just a bit. Stealing a bit of tech, repurposing and improving it, then paying up when people complain.
>>33640118> “I can't let you do that... Let me talk to Yasake. I'll make him understand.”> (Other)>I don't think Hao would want that either. He told me before that he already suspected the Smolder would discover how to make their own ships one day. If you were imprisoned or killed, then who knows how the knowledge of these ships would be used.I've got a suggestion. Under the premise that Hao doesn't want to start a war, and with Akabaron's trust in us saying Hao doesn't want a war either, we can have Yasake bring Akabaron in, but not as a "prisoner". Just have him simply travel back to the mainland. Don't do anything that would alert or trouble the Smolders. Then Akabaron could simply speak with Hao then.The important thing here is to not make a big deal of Akabaron sailing back to the city.
>>33640152Pictures.Remember prof said that there were pictures of sharpedos tearing through the hulls of ships?>Waterborne monster>Water pouring in.>Distorted/broken metal.They likely put it together and decided to give it a shot.>>33640231Yeah, if it never occurred to them that they could make metal float, they likely wouldn't be doing this now.
>>33640118>> “Go then, he'll be waiting outside of the city.”Maybe someone will write a smutfic about you for your sacrifice.
>>33640118>>33640266Delay it even.Have the Kahkori ship and crew sail back, but leave Yasake behind, so that if Yasake doesn't return within a set number of days, they could be told to warn Hao about some sort of rebellion. This way, Akabaron can make his own way back to the city (how do the Smolder even get ships to go to their island to sail them out?) with us (and Yasake) on board without alarming the Smolder population.>>33640283>Remember prof said that there were pictures of sharpedos tearing through the hulls of ships?Ah, yes, that's obvious.
>>33640118>[X] “I can't let you do that... Let me talk to Yasake. I'll make him understand.”
>>33640362>Ah, yes, that's obvious.*Ah, yes, that SHOULD have been obvious.
>>33640118Can we ask him what he's going to DO with the ship?It would go miles for helping with a good explanation
>we're actually going to Yasake instead of letting Akabaron make his potential sacrificeGoddamnit.Ygg, could we at least confirm with Akabaron that the Arc/Ark is only for transporting Smolder to Kanto region, and nothing more?
>>33640402>ArcWe're looking at exodus.
>>33640414I think>>33640266This suggestion works. Tell Yasake that Akabaron is willing to go back to the city to explain himself to Lord Hao, but that it's important for the stability of the people here that he doesn't go to the city as a 'prisoner'.
>>33640118Couldn't we go to Yasake with Akabaron to make a case to try and make him understand?
>>33640427yes, I know that, but ceru needs him to actually SAY that.So we can relay that.
>>33640461Yeah I can see that.But really at this point, there's little Yasake and the Tuskless can do but help the Smolder get as far away from here as possible.
>>33640461>mentioning the whole 'stability' shitThe LESS you say, the BETTER.Hao's just going to use that information to make an immediate attack on Smelda.
>>33640485They can't do that though, otherwise the Araraki will drive off the Kahkori and Tuskless
>>33640509I thought we were taking the Araraki with us as well?
>>33640463Yasake is pretty devoted to Hao, so it's not likely he'll let any gap in the security of the Empire go easily.>>33640509This is also true, come to think of it. Even if the Kahkori would be glad to have the Smolder leave peacefully, they'd also be afraid of the prospect of the Araraki rising up against them.>>33640538The Araraki either want to leave these islands or have BOTH the Kahkori and Smolder leave.
>>33640538On the ark? THIS ark? The one that Akabaron was making without anyone's knowledge and was planning on leaving with all the smolder in?
>>33640558>The Araraki either want to leave these islands or have BOTH the Kahkori and Smolder leave.They leave at the same time as the smolder.>>33640565NO!! ON THE SHIP WE WERE GOING TO BUILD WITH HAO!!!!
>>33640595>They leave at the same time as the smolder.Well, that's not going to happen immediately.>>33640485I mean, unless the Smolder and Kahkori are willing to cooperate and sail away on the same giant metal ark together to a new land...which seems unlikely.
>>33640648I thought the plans was to build like two or so ships and the two species part ways on the mainland.
>>33640648Would be nice if Serebyi used her time travel shenanigans to make all these races grow up together instead of apart.
>>33640118>> “I can't let you do that... Let me talk to Yasake. I'll make him understand.”if he dies then war is gonna happen
>>33640668That would mean 1 power source per boat
>>33640692>Power sources are impossible to build more than one of. Your joking right?
>>33640692>>33640722What is their power source anyways? Did I miss something?
>>33640668Hao and the Araraki are hoping to get help from the Dome in transporting the races out from these islands.The Smolder are trying to build their own ships.Even if the Kahkori were willing to trust the Smolder to not use it for war, they hypothetically may not want the Smolder to leave on their own because it would leave them vulnerable to another war with the Araraki. So it would be great if the Kahkori and Smolder could cooperate to leave the islands together, but...as for how likely this is, we'd actually need some input from the Kahkori and Smolder leaders we know (Hao, Akabaron) on how likely the other leaders in their races (or, for that matter, their people) are willing to cooperate to that extent.>>33640692>>33640722Depending on how difficult it'd be to even create an engine and the repel tech, that may exasperate things.
>>33640761I thought we were leaving the Kahkori behind and taking the Araraki and Smolders with us?
>>33640796Some Araraki want all the heresy gone.Others want to get away from the Heresy.Others want all heresy dead.I need a pic of God-Empress Celebi.
>>33640796Uh, the Araraki either want to find a place for their own out in the greater continent or have both the Kahkori and Smolder leave the islands.The Smolder want to leave the islands because they don't want to live in dependance of the Kahkori.The Kahkori just don't want a war to happen, although presumably, they may also wish to leave these islands. Expand their empire and whatnot. I'd watch out for that happening.
>>33640848The only ones the tech matters to are the Smolders. The Araraki and Kahkori think the tech is what cause the first end of the world. So they will never use it. And without it they are NOT a threat to anyone.
>>33640923No, only the Araraki believe that the technology caused the end of the world.>They do not dabble in technology as we do. They believe it to interfere with the land, and some nonsense of aura or spirit.Although the Kahkori in general don't use it either.But neither of that matters in terms of them willing to board a boat made from advanced technology. Remember, the Araraki Elders were actually quite receptive to having the Dome help them leave these islands. They just don't want to LIVE with the technology afterward.
>>33640848The two races that will be the easieist to evac are the smolders and Araraki. Both of them have low population due to being marginalized on terrible land. The Smolders WANT out. Also:>The Araraki either want to leave these islands or have BOTH the Kahkori and Smolder leave.Like i said 5 posts ago. We land the ships on the shore, the ararki pile out, and wander of into the wild blue yonder. They NEVER have to see us again. So we CAN get both races to leave these islands.
>>33641053>Both of them have low population due to being marginalized on terrible land.We don't actually know that.
>>33640994>But neither of that matters in terms of them willing to board a boat made from advanced technology. Remember, the Araraki Elders were actually quite receptive to having the Dome help them leave these islands. They just don't want to LIVE with the technology afterward.We can do this you know. Just take them to the mainland with us, pile them out first and then they can wander off to establish their tech-free paradise to purge their ranks of meat eaters and start having wild celebii sex again or whatever.
>>33641077>Living in a wasteland desert.>After a huge war that killed a LOT of them.>For 200+ years.Anon i dont think i need to break out the line graph to tell you what that does to populations, right?Also Akabaron said having fewer mouths to feed was a GOOD thing in smolder society. So yes we do know that Smolder populations are low, by choice in this case.
>>33641088Here's the thing, Celebi personally intervened to save us.That makes me wonder if Celebi's problem is the Araraki being around races that don't value nature, or the Araraki just being dicks to people who don't believe what they believe.
I don't know where all this talk of them coming to the mainland is coming from.I mean, they'll have an ocean capable boat. They can just go FIND somewhere. Doesn't have to be our place if they don't want.
>>33641154Because picking a random direction and aiming for it probably isn't a good idea.In one direction is the vast emptiness of the Poke-Pacific, and nobody has time for that.
>>33641154Anon we want to home. Even if i think that HIGH ADVENTURE off into the wilderness is more fun, ive been outvoted.This exodus fleet is our ticket out of here. So they will have to AT LEAST drop us off on our mainland before doing whatever.
>>33641154First, we need to know what exactly they'll be using to make a ship that's capable of traveling on an ocean without the use of waves.>He snaps back out of memory,”As for why I've told you this, it is to explain: Kahkori are the ship-makers. They have the wood to float, not Smolders. However it is we that may have the technology to cross the ocean outside the flow of the currents.”If they could find a way to easily reproduce that tech, then there's no worry. The problem is on how trustworthy the Smolder in general are to the Kahkori.
“I can't let you do that.” The words come out on their own. Even if you feel wronged, even if he's not been the most trustworthy. His conviction radiates off of him. “I'll talk to Yasake. Hao doesn't want war, and you don't want war, There's got to be a way to work this out. Please, just let me do this, okay?”Akabaron stares at you with his one good eye, slowly nodding, “If you believe that you can convince him, then you are welcome to try. Know though that I come willingly if my presence is required. I have no wish to aggravate the situation by resisting... I will also return your equipment, though I'll admit that we put some force into taking it apart... We succeeded in creating a prototype of what you'd shown me before.”Your eyes widen,” You... actually did it?”Another nod by him, yes. We found that we had some of the metals used in its making. We replicated it, then estimated the scale and so forth. The engineers I found were fascinated by your tools, yet I made it clear that if they made them cease functioning, I'd flay their hides.” A low laugh echoes out from the comfort of his helm,” Seemed it was almost enough motivation.”He turns to leave, “Go then. I will recover your possessions.”Departing, you find your way back out to the far reaches of the tin and rust housing outside of what passes for a city.Yasake's the one that finds you, not the other way around. “So? What did he say?”“He doesn't want war. He wants to leave in peace. He's willing to come with you if you ask. No resisting.”Yasake stares at you for a moment at that. “Good. No resisting. We'll take him in then-”
>>33641240Just tell the smolder that the mainland has all the food in the universe with NO oceans and they will hop on those boats out faster than sailor dick at a brothel.
>>33641347well, the mainland is actually japan, so there's still oceans
“Wait!” Marine yells at Yasake, giving him pause. He stares at her incredulously. “Wait. You shouldn't take him. He's just doing what's right for his people. If yo take him, they're gonna be mad, you know? What's wrong with building a big boat? Let them leave!” Yasake's pleasantries subside, the pleasure dripping from his cloaked face, “If we do not halt them, all the balance that we've accomplished will be ruined. Kahkori and Araraki will die becausee of this. Even if this is not a warship, what of the other islands? How do we not know that they're not building ships to escort this behemoth?” He gestures to the yard in the distance.“Should they land upon Raguna or any Kahkori island they could burn it all down. They must be kept to smolder rather than be allowed to catch onto anything.”“You need to let him go. It'll just make them more mad!”“If I don't they'll have a leader to initiate the attack.” Yasake returns.“Akabaron is tired...” You say, thinking of the way his spirit felt back in that foreman quarter. “How about we leave, and he comes to Hao on the next boat? Could that work? Hao wouldn't want a war started without his word, right?”Yasake locks up, staring at you hard.“What should we do, sir?” One of the guards asks, awaiting orders.“We withdraw- for now. Akabaron had better have a good explanation for this... Do you have any more business here?”> Just need to pick up something.> I'd like to learn more about them.
>>33641363> I'd like to learn more about them.Well, it's why we came in the first place.
>>33641360Really I'd say there best bet would be the gap between Kanto and Sinnoh, or Johto and Hoenn.Can't be a lot going on in between those areas.
>>33641363>[X] I'd like to learn more about them.
>>33641363> Just need to pick up something.> I'd like to learn more about them.Both of those. We're here to pick up something, AND we are here to secure their help in building our own boat. Remember that part?
>>33641363We would like to learn a bit more about how they live, but that might not be a tenable option.
>>33641363> I'd like to learn more about them.>>33641412Well, we're picking it up anyway, but mentioning that we're picking it up might be bad?
>>33641433well, whatever then.
>>33641363Ok so the Smolders can build the ships AND have the tech to make it. SO i think that i can safely say Asking the Dome for help is no longer necessary. At least i hope.
>>33641363>> I'd like to learn more about them.>>33641433 is right.
>>33639824Anon you do realize that these people are literally our only way to get home right? Without their help, (ie if they are mired in a fucking war) we are stuck here for years on end, probably even dying if war breaks out.
>>33641363> Just need to pick up something.> I'd like to learn more about them.
>>33641363>I'd like to learn more about them.We stayed with the Araraki for a while, I feel like we should get a better look at how these people live.
>tfw Ceru has more empathy than some of her players.
>>33641864Its /tg/, a place full of anti-social, psychotic, losers and no-lifes myself DEFINITELY included. What did you expect?
>>33641864Well, the fact that she feels this much empathy is because most of us here actually care to help. It's horrifying how extreme the guys who want to fuck off are, though.
>>33641908Look i may not want to go back to the Dome but i do want to solve this problem before it turns into a war.
You tell Yasake that you have mind to stay for a time, to learn more about them like you did with the Araraki. Without much left to protest he warns you that you'll without a doubt go hungry, and the next ship for food isn't due for at least a week.You let him know that it's fine. That's something that you can just deal with.Akabaron is surprised by your decision, yet nonetheless seems relieved that Yasake relented.“I will return with you and speak to Hao. My silence has gone on long enough.”It's from here that you reclaim your gear and settle in for the week. With Akabaron's approval you gain a rough understanding of Smolder firearms and how to operate some of their fancier devices such as mines, and grenades. They know to mix certain distilled chemicals together to create such explosive effects.You take some walks through the outskirts, under guard with Marine at your side. Part of you feels bad, acting as a tourist and observing the sick and starving. But likewise, it's a sobering experience. It puts things into perspective. Marine shares some of her food, treating them all so kindly.“It's like this in some parts of Pewter too. Silph doesn't do anything about it and no one understands why.”You feel that it's terrible, yet you don't say anything. Marine already has too many reasons to stay as it is...Akabaron teaches you proper form for firing, gun or no gun.>Gunner Skill acquired!Marine finds a bit of her feminine side and assists mostly with distributing food to the infirm... It actually kind of surprises you...The week ends and you hear word of another ship coming into port soon. With ash-coated lungs you return to Raguna with Akabaron in tow, production on their Arc going smoothly...>[End Thread]
>>33641965what's the rough estimate for the time skip now prof?thanks for running and good luck with that family thing
>>33641965yeah the ash here kind of sucks.You go, marine. I want to talk to you at some point about maybe you getting to come back here later on. You know, as a diplomat guard or cultural expert or something. Assuming dome stuff goes well.
>>33641965Marine, We WILL help these people. If we can we shall save everyone on these island.>“It's like this in some parts of Pewter too. Silph doesn't do anything about it and no one understands why.”Silph Co. We HATE everyone we pretend to serve so openly it isnt even funny.
>>33642028It's obvious Silph Co. is the generic business entity, but right now, we're neither just pretending to serve them or hate them. You're just projecting too much, so don't get ahead of yourself.
>>33642028I don't, uh, hate sylph co that much actually.They seem to be fairly normal business types, and they're willing to do most anything (including working with monsters, I bet) to make cash.
>>33641965Dude. What happened to kurojo? Is he just hanging, without learning antthing or getting character development?
>>33642105NPCs can do stuff while not in the foreground anon
>>33641965>>33642105Kurojo went with us to the Ararakian Wastes. Did he comes with us to Smelda too?
>>33642105yeah, we were supposed to talk to him, I thought.
>>33642028They prob doing it to get a fresh supply volunteers for rangers that aren't clones i guess
Which reminds me, wasn't it stated that SIlph Co. is essentially the government? Or am I remembering wrong?
>>33642105Back in Raguna. Didn't come for this one.
>>33642139Yeah, they're essentially the government for Kanto.For Johto, it's Team Magma and Team Aqua, I think.
>>33642066The second bit was supposed to be a mock tag line in the advert.Also considering that the Smolders can just build EVERYTHING we will need for this trip, especially if the get the other races invested, we (THANKFULLY) will not need to involve the Dome.>>33642083Anon, you forget. They are the ones who run the government, they keep the repel grid up, they run the jobs, they own the capital and land. You would think that they want to keep all of their people placated. But no they encourage the festering slums of Pewter. Just because they HATE you sooooo much and so openly it isnt even funny.
>>33642139Nah, it's basically the gov.Monopoly gov of one of humanity(pure human's) last bastions.
>>33642158Always gotta be slums so that everyone can have someone lesser to compare themselves against.
>>33642154You mean Hoenn?>>33642159So it's a corporatocracy of sorts? Interesting.Do they have Johto under their grip as well?
>>33642158You seem kind of like an extremist of some sort. And crazy.There's not any evidence for any kind of sylph plot to make slums. That's retarded for everyone on all sides. It's probably just simple resource tightness and misallocation.Like how these things usually turn out to be.
>>33642184"Look on the bright side. you may be slaves to your jobs and we can and will kill your family on a moments notice, BUT you dont live in pewter", says the Silph floor boss to his employees in the annual meeting.Why the fuck do we want to back again? To protect this shit?
>>33642209Oh, yes, that's right, Hoenn.
Hoo boy, that anti-dome junta guy is back.
>>33642241Ive been here all thread.
>>33642241Every post that uses excessive caps lock and exclamation points is Conspiracy Anon. He's easy to pick out.
>>33642219Well, for one, it's because we're not extremists like you who keep misrepresenting everything. This is why people are annoyed with you; because you keep making wild statements.>>33642241He's already been here. You should be able to guess who.
>>33642260Yeah. He's done more to hurt the "I don't want to go back" side than anything else.
>>33641965Are you going to edit the pastebin with the Energy Ball and Gunner and other things we've acquired or am I going to have to do it for you?
>>33641965So, we'll be getting new equipment aside from the harpoon launcher, right?
>>33642286Do it, he still has to make the powerchart for espers and aura
>>33642264Nah im pretty certain that the whole, hidden past plot hook did that far better than i ever could have. As much as i like the idea of HIGH ADVENTURE in a post-apoc Pokeworld, I've long been outvoted. So at this point it doesn't matter what i say.
>>33642209Maybe Ygg's telling Hickory about Johto dome and they're leaving it as a surprise for us?
$20 says Hemlock put a killswitch in us when he did our implant surgery.
I miss the smut
>>33642347While in the games Johto and Kanto are so interconnected that they have the same pokemon league and railway services, in this world there was an apocalypse. So they probably havent been in real contact from hundreds of years by this point. Hell people are warned away from mount Silver because Red is still alive somehow. So yeah who know what we will find up there.>>33642371I highly doubt that. And im the Conspiracy Anon. After all kill switches require lots of extra shit to be put into a body that could break at any time that isnt when the kill-word or whatever is used. Its too risky to use on rangers to keep them in line. Thats why they use brainwashing instead. Much more simple and clean.
>>33642371I would be dissapointed if they gave us a killswitch and no skullgun
>>33642863A gun in your skull.Though a mouthgun is pretty close.
>>33642430Dude.Not only is that not true, fucking Lilac knew that Johto had a Ghost gym leader, and wanted to visit there.
I always hated Dude guy.
