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
Aaand reporting in.Marine, I hope you're as shock resistant as you seem to be in our training, that shit is going to be useful.We need to get her some heavy metal cables or nets or hooks or whatever really.
>>33659049What did we get from> Go on a Local Hunt: You'll hunt local game for equipment and to increase trust with the ones involved in the imperial hunt. (New equipment, increased crew.) 3SP
>>33659145She's got mudkips yo. After the change, she's a ground type.
>>33659189>for equipment and to increase trust with the ones involved in the imperial hunt. (New equipment, increased crew.)
>>33659145Shock resistant, shock immune.
>>33659049Oh boy! Time to fight an event sized Colossal Ivory Lagiacrus!
>>33659365Look at the pastebin.
>>33659194By the laws of Pokemon, Marine should be completely immune to electric attacks, but I'm not sure if that's gonna be the case here, since that would make things too easy.
>>33659411>Implying she aint gonna get hipwrecked.
>>33659049Yo Prof.The moves are listed with different ranks in the by cost list and the regular list.>Icy Wind/Blizzard (10+2): Generates a chilling wind or a large howling gale that saps heat from what it touches.Blizzard generates Fatigue.>>Icy Wind (6+2): You have refined your power over ice, allowing you to conjure up a wind that generates lasting frost in passing, and a chill that tickles down into muscle tissue.Which one we got?
>>33659436Oh, and Frost Wave should be rank 7 if we actually got Blizzard.
>>33659575Just because it's known for electric typing doesn't mean it can't resort to other physical moves.
Hao witheld Akabaron from any sort of trial, answering in private that he was much too close to his goal to let old politics ruin everything. Akabaron, thankful, issued Smolder to assist the manning of the great hunting ship. With his return to Smelda to oversee the creation of the Arc that the White Lord would be the heart of, you walk the deck of the great ship with Marine. It's polished, slick, and serpentine, adorned with the flesh and bones of various aquatic monsters.Harpoon turrets and cannons upon the side, and a great sail being unfurled by acrobatic Khakori sailors.Hao hiself stands upon the deck, no screen to hide his brilliance as he rallies the hunters and sailors. Once finished, the Khakori unleash a warbling cry, the Smolder a deck-shaking roar, the Araraki the only ones standing in silence.You, Marine, Kurojo, and Seralana stand up on deck in your equipment, freshly made and remodelled for this hunt.Seralana's abandoned her scrap-like robes for a carefully tailored garb of reptilian leathers standing blue and silver against her green scales. A brassier and bottom, it's the first time you've ever seen her show so much skin... What those leather robes had hidden were scales that glittered like emeralds, a nimble hourglass figure, a powerful tail and various little buds all over her body, small leafing vines even that exposed leaves at her joints.He Glaive has been refitted with a lightweight and shimmering Narga-Kage blade, a new bone of another monster weighing down the other end.You remodelled your own armor, keeping the basis of the Narga-kage's “underwear armor” as you'd begun to call it, the open stomach and joints have been replaced by Ordilian leather with enough openings at your feet and other areas to keep it passing through. You specifically told the craftsmaster to make sure water drained out of this suit.
Combo move ideas with energy ball.>Form an E.Ball and Ice Ball at the same time, shooting the mixture of plant and ice energy in one projectile. >Same thing, but with Icicle Gun instead of Ice Ball. Will result in the plant energy penetrating deeper into the target before detonation (hopefully)>Fire the E.Ball and then shoot it with a Psybeam to cause it to airburst. Same thing may be possible with Icicle Gun depending on the projectile speeds. Alternately, V.Wave may be used for potentially best results because of priority.
>>33659631Just a question: why do you think Energy Ball does all those things? I don't see any description for what it actually IS.
>>33659712It's natural energy from the environment which is condensed and then fired by our omniguns. It detonates on impact.
>>33659613>marine is ground>seralana is ground>we're super weak to electric typeThis isn't gonna be pleasant for us.
Did we get our indexes back, and did we attempt to download the data from the PCs?
>>33659757So why would psychic energy cause it to detonate?Would it detonate upon contact with water?
>>33659766>>seralana is groundShe's Grass with medium powers, I thought. Still resists Electric, but I don't think she's Ground.
>>33659757We can infuse Psychic and Aura energy into any of our attacks, so I guess the logic flows.
>>33659766best stay out of the water>>33659807yes and no. is that millenia old computer even compatible?
>>33659766Since when is Seralana ground?
>>33659816>So why would psychic energy cause it to detonate?I dunno. It might or it might not. Pokemon is weird. We can do all kinds of weird shit with Psybeam that we never got around to, like infusing bubbles with psionic power or using ice as prisms to focus or redirect it. Wouldn't take more than 10 seconds to test it, though.>Would it detonate upon contact with water?Probably.
>>33659874Ice beam vs Confuse Ray= explosion.Yeah, pokescience is weird.
>>33659849If it has a wifi router...Or if it comes to it, copy everything by hand and with screenshots.>>33659874>>Would it detonate upon contact with water?>Probably.What are the Araraki gonna DO, besides use their armor to grow vines?Is the main tactic just to keep the Lord above the water for as long as possible?
>>33659851>>33659820she's a ground/grass symbiote hybrid.Sort of like a paras, but with a ground lizard instead of a bug and vines instead of mushrooms.
>>33659931I think the tactic is A. cover the lord with metal so its shocking doesn't do as much to usB. shoot it repeatedly at close range with piercing attacks
>>33659935And do you have anything to support this or are you the same guy who's been repeating this speculation for months now?
>>33659971Wasn't it confirmed as true back when all this was still up in debate?
>>33659921This is a bit late, but all the rangers in the Dome take classes for Typing, right? I mean, it makes sense to document which rangers are effective against which monsters, right?So why don't they just use the pokemon terms for typing?
Marine's swapped out her heavy metal armor for underwear. Her shell's been growing a lot lately and her entire back and belly's armored in layers of hard red shell. She figured that if the thing's got electricity, then that's all she really needs to worry about. A hit Is gonna hurt armor or no.Her Frosty Jawed Kanabo still slung over her back.You agree with her, but you also don't have natural armor like that. Kurojo went the same route as everyone else. He wears only a loincloth to preserve his decency. Something that's more of a stigma in Raguna at least.He wields a spear fit at one end with the crackling horn of an electric monster. He must figure that it'll negate some of the voltage.The rest of the deck-born hunters maintain various degrees of armor to a lack of armor or explicitly aquatic armor.Save for the Smolder donning their go-to plate armor and mail. You'd asked, and as it turns out they figure themselves for dead if they go overboard anyway.The ship sets off, riding swiftly upon the air and ocean current with such speed that it occasionally skips over a wave Smolder retreat below deck, much like Nala and Akabaron would, you figure. They'll come out only when they need to participate in the hunt.Your heart flutters in your chest. This is it. After this you'll have everything you need for the trip home. At one point, you wonder if they'd recognize you now. You've met so many new people, learned so many things, and you barely even recognize your old self- or Marine's. You've both gotten taller, and been through a lot of hunts that would hardly be good for a cadet.You still waver now and then, between your desire to return home, the anxiety of what will await when you return from the dead, and leaving all the new people you've met behind.
Even Hao's been rather likeable, allowing you less formal visits and drinking tea, talking about the past. He let you download what files you could from his hidden archive. You couldn't fit everything, but you got some choice pieces of evidence. At this point, you're certain that it'll be seized from you, but you won't let them just take it, or your memories of this place.Nala's been like another mom, maybe like an Aunt. And Kurojo... You realized that he reminds you a lot of Bruise, and he's gotten distant since you've told him about your choice to go home.After he learned about the past from Hao, he's been wary of going anywhere near such a place.That's not to mention the dubious facts that surround your origins.You look down at the crystal waves breaking from shimmering sunlight to white foam at the crest of the ship. The cool sea hair brushing past your fur, the taste of salt lingering upon your lips and tongue.You can't take the Lord Of White Waves down soon enough.Months preparation at this point surmounts to this...>This may be one of your last chances to talk to your friends before the hunt. Anything you'd like to say to anyone?> Kurojo> Seralana> MarineAre present.>I'm fine, don't want to get distracted.
>>33660023> KurojoWell, let's give him a proper talk.
>>33660023I want to go tell marine she's been a solid bro through all of this, and she's gotten strong as hell.Thank kurojo for all his help, as well. Maybe apologize for having to go.
>>33660002>Save for the Smolder donning their go-to plate armor and mail. You'd asked, and as it turns out they figure themselves for dead if they go overboard anyway.They can hook themselves to the ship, at least.>Marine's decision to stayWhere the hell is Marine's Rocket Mode? Doesn't it make her a ticking time bomb if she stays?>>33660023>I'm fine, don't want to get distractedYou've all had MONTHS to get this baggage sorted out. Now is the time to concentrate and not accidentally let RM kill everyone on our ship.
>>33660023> Kurojo> Seralana> MarineTeam huddle?
>>33660192>Where the hell is Marine's Rocket Mode? Doesn't it make her a ticking time bomb if she stays?Apparently, Rocket Mode is just Ceru being crazy.
>>33660233It better not be. I understand if Marine didn't train long enough for it to take(not really, but the excuse is good enough), but if Ceru really IS the only one to have Rocket Mode then this is just bad writing.
You approach Kurojo as he reclines against one of the masts of the ship. He's in a position where it looks like he's trying to look cool, but really he's just sleeping, you see as the slight whistle of his snore's what led you to him. What's impressive though is how he keeps his balance despite the rock of the ship.With a pinch at the fleshy part of his cheek, his eyes open up, and their golden sets fall upon you. “Ah, White.” He pushes himself off, stretching out his back. His eyes flick away, avoiding yours a bit, instead contenting himself with the view of the rolling waves, the occasional monster jumping over them. “Dollphos, they call them. The tricksters of the sea. It's said that they're good luck, unless you fall overboard.”“What do they do?”“Never stop playing.”You hum at that, before looking down and grabbing his hand, looking up at him. “Jojo?”He takes his hand away from you. It takes a moment though, and it seems that he's reluctant. “What?” You can feel something wrong in him.“We haven't spoken as much lately is all. I know I've been busy and everthing but.”He shakes his head, his crest's gotten long. It looks like a mohawk now. “No, it's okay. If I were you, I'd want to go home too.”If there's one thing you'd like to say, it's, “But you don't want me to.” But you could never say that. He hasn't even said it. Not once has he begged you to reconsider. Not once has he told you, “Don't go home.”“I said back then, that I'd help you find a way home, right?”“You did.”He looks at you now, the sunlight streaming through his red feathers, casting him in a ruby-like sheen, his oranges glowing like fire. “I keep my promises.”> “Even the ones you don't want to keep?> Give him a hug, “Thank you Jojo. For everything.”> Don't say anything, just stand beside him for a while. Maybe you'll both fall asleep?> (Other)
>>33660537> “Even the ones you don't want to keep?> Give him a hug, “Thank you Jojo. For everything.”
>>33660537> (Other)the guy has earned a kiss on the cheek at bare minimum
>>33660537> Give him a hug, “Thank you Jojo. For everything.”Then try your very best to look cool after that.
>>33660663This. Anything less is Princess Zelda tier.
>>33660537> (Other)french the bird. He's earned it.
>>33660537>>33660731Nah. Vote against. I don't like Kurojo that much
>>33660749He's been a bro, obviously likes Ceru and she obviously likes him. He's never asked her to stay.We may very well NEVER see him again after we leave.Also, Devon's a shit.
>>33660787That doesn't mean we need to suck on his bird face.
>>33660537>his oranges glowing like fireAre we staring at his...chest?
>>33660913Eyebrow waggling ensues. It's just the orange colors of his plume.
>>33660537> (Other)kiss the bird.I've come to terms jojo ceru ain't happening. just give em one moment before it dies
>>33660537>>[X] “Even the ones you don't want to keep?>>[X] Give him a hug, “Thank you Jojo. For everything.”He at least deserves a hug of friendship.
>>33660787fuck you FUCK YOUDEVON IS THE PUREST OF ALL HUSBANDOS HE ISN'T SOME HALF BREEDOR ISLAND SAVAGEHE IS A HUNDRED PERCENT RANGER GOODNESS
>>33660946He can get a peck on the cheek, but that's all.
>>33660957tsundere (has he even dere'd yet?) are lame
>>33660957If Devon deserves Ceru's virginity after saving her from rape-village, then Jojo deserves her hand in marriage with Kurojo literally being the one thing that's allowed us to not be trapped on these islands forever.
>>33660946Hell no. No way we're doing any Twilight shit here. I like Kurojo. Which is why I don't want to kiss him and turn him into the Jacob to our fucking Bella. Don't even want to be fucking Bella.
>>33660980Bitch, we're gonna hug the tsun right out of him
>>33660537>[X] “Even the ones you don't want to keep?>[X] Give him a hug, “Thank you Jojo. For everything.”I hug for a friend is good and I would rather not do anything more than that.
>>33661019Threesomes solve many problems I findbut not as many as foursomes do
>meanwhile, in Jojo quest"Ceru is a cockteasing ungrateful bitch!"
>>33661055>Not being aware of pop cultureYou sure as fuck didn't need to listen to any of Michael Jackson's songs to know who he was. Although, you may also have confused Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson for each other at least once in your young life.
>>33661049does he even dere?
>Friendzoning Jojo after everything he's done for us.There are no more heroes.
>>33661099He will when we're done with him
>>33661101You have no one to blame but Prof for that when lots of people made it absolutely clear since the beginning (even as soon as we took control of Jojo that one time) that they didn't intend to ever end up with him.
“Even the ones... You don't want to keep?” You say, as you put your arms around him on deck for everyone else topside to see. He straightens his back, stiffening up before gently pushing against you, reluctant to actually push you away.“White...” You can sense his inner frustrations. The things that he wants to say, but can't lest it inconvenience you. He's too proud and honorable for his own good.You give him a tighter squeeze, showing your resolution and he finally gives up, resting his arms around you as well.You two stay like that for a bit, until the ship skips a wave and sends the two of you tumbling over. You land on top of him, and the two of you stare into each others' eyes. Your heart beats a bit faster and you slowly lower your face towards his, puckering up your lips just a little.You give him a kiss on the forehead before you get off of him and help him up, holding his hand as you look away. “Thank you Jojo. For everything.” You walk off after that, too embarrassed and a little sad to stick around him. As much as you like him, you're not staying here forever.You'll talk to someone else tomorrow you guess...Morning comes and it's another day at sea. Marine's below the decks wrestling with some Smolder.Seralana is performing combat motions up on deck.Jojo is in his bunk.>Who do you talk to?
>>33661140We don't really have as much to say with Seralana, so>Marine
>>33661140go to bed.
>>33661099He's spilled his spaghetti, at least.
>all dat steamship sperg>ceru's lips aren't even pure Bruise was here. Devon is a loser
>>33661153What do we tell Marine? She's made everything very clear. About the only thing is whether she misses anyone from the Dome, or if there's anyone she'd like to bring outside.>>33661140Ask Seralana about the shadow ball. Girl needs to get better at 'splainin. Can we use Aura to better discern her meaning?
>>33661204Implying Bruise hasn't already impregnated kitty
>>33661204Got that out of your system, did you?
>>33661236>implying one is enough for cunt destroyer.>>33661242all the normal fags left a long time ago, its just spiteful spergs like you and me and everyone else here now. and what? you didn't like the pokeymans animu reference?
>>33661296>Implying Bruise hasn't already deflowered most of the girls of our generation
>>33661296Trying to hard, anon. Although, you're probably the same anon who's always tried to hard, so it may be just as expected.
>>33661140SeralanaMaybe we can go through the motions with her and really I hope to talk to everyone before we fight. It's too bad Nala isn't on board as we could have talked to her too.
>>33661354Nala is on board. She's below decks because she dislikes the rocking of the ship.
>>33661140Nobody specifically, but we should passingly visit all of them. I guess marine highest priority, since she's our friend and we're going into combat and you should take chances to see your friends.Also discuss with her how we're going to ruin this monster's day.
>>33661348>Trying to hard, anon. Although, you're probably the same anon who's always tried too hard, so it may be just as expected.Improper spelling really undermines the condescension thing you are going for anon.
>>33661415Eh. Phones are a hassle to type on.
>>33661422Touchscreens are so imprecise. And then autocorrect comes in and changes something to a completely different word.I'll take a laptop over a tablet any day of the week.
>>33661478It's annoying when I'm trying to spell some nonsense word and it keeps getting changed.
>>33661136Lots of people?More like just one or two.Also what do we have to say to Marine? Maybe how we're planning on not getting our memories erased?
>>33662240obviously to do each other's nails
>>33662240>Maybe how we're planning on not getting our memories erased?The actual plan, or the intention? I think "facing the evil" sent the message clear enough, so do you have a plan for not getting mindwiped?
>>33662240>More like just one or two.Okay.
>>33662240The plan is to get in contact with some esper proof rockets and get a message to the boss that we need a high level escort back to the dome. Secret info stuff.Then report to the boss as best as we can.
>>33662294Well, we have Aura, and I'm pretty sure the Dome should have no knowledge or way of preparing for that. It would be a good idea to set up a meeting in a way that could capitalize on that, so we can flee if we sense that they mean us bad times.There's also Agatha, who's most likely to know the truth.
You go below deck, and find Marine wrestling away the Smolders' sea sickness. Engaged in a skin on skin brawl, Marine's right in the middle of delivering a decisive suplex to her oppenent, mashing their head and stabbing their horns into the floor.The Other Smolder unleash an uproar of laughter as Marine dusts off her hands, the Smolder struggling to remove his head from an embarassing position.They snarl, growl, and spit fire, but to no avail as Marine walks around to give her foe an open handed spank on the rump.“Keep at it, an' make sure it doesn't happen during the hunt! Then again, you coul' prolly see the beast surrender'n t' that rump!” Marine says in near-perfect Raguna, sending the other smolder into another bout of laughter.Seems she's become real popular with the crew...“Hey Marine, you got a minute?” You say, sliding in through the crowd.“Ultramarine.” One of the Smolder corrects you. “You should know the name of your partner, Blachne Diable!”“White” You correct, “That's the name I chose, and I don't need a nickname.”“Hey, easy, easy.” Marine approaches waving the Smolder down, “I'll be right back guys, an' get tha' fool's head outta th' floor fer the next match!”Marine takes you by the arm and takes you to another part of the cargo bay. This is the place that's going to carry the beast's corpse. Wide and spacious, it should be enough to drag the monster home. For now though, it's used for Smolder sparring. Apparently fighting makes them less restless.“You're really getting along with them, aren't you?” You say once you're out of the way of the brutes fighting.
Marine smiles at you, giving you a little punch on the arm that actually really smarts, “ 'Course! They're awesome. I've loved their games ever since I got here, the drinking, the armwrestling, the sparring, they're pretty great.” Marine ruffles her own short hair, sticking her tongue, “I'm glad that they're coming back with us at least. By the way, you talk to Jojo? He seemed kind of upset last night.”With a sigh, you push a lock of hair back behind your ornamental horns, “Yeah... More like what I didn't say to him though...”“Hey, you like him, right?”You suck in your breath at that, dropping your head down bashfully.Marine nods with a knowing smile, “Uh huh...”You shake your head, “But... I can't.”“Why not?”“Because we're gonna leave, and we might not ever come back...”“What if you asked him to come with you? Then you wouldn't have to worry about that.”You swallow thinking it over. “If he came, Silph might take him and experiment on him.”“Would you let them?”You look at her with a defiant, confused look, “Of course, I wouldn't! I wouldn't let them do that...”“Then it's fine, right? They're going to try looking at our memories, and we know they'll want to take them away. Why should we cooperate. Screw the rules Cerulean. Are you going to let the rules stand in the way of love?”“What about you? Weren't you all about Hao?”“Uh huh. But then I figured he only really looked at you. Besides, he's all busy being kingly with his sparkly butt. You need me Ceru. I mean, look at you. If I wasn't here, you'd just be an idiot about being with Kurojo. Go on, you should ask him.”“But what if he says no?” You whimper, grasping at straws for some reason not to.“But what if you're a butt?”“What?”
“Stop thinking and go do it. You think too much. It'll be fine.” Marine turns you around and pats you forward by your hind, “Go, on, get to it then, I'll beat you up if you don't!”You're hurried on, but you stop short in the stairwell. You can't help but to frown and keep frowning. Marine says you should but... what if something happens during the hunt? This is a really dangerous monster...But, don't think Marine says. But you need to think... You really do... Ohhhh, what should you do...> Ask him after the hunt. It's better that way.> Ask him now while you have the nerve.> He's already done enough for you, you don't have the heart to ask anymore. This is for his sake.> (other)
>>33662521>Ask him now while you have the nerve.She really will beat us up if we don't.

>>33662521>[X] Ask him now while you have the nerve.Because the alternative is not for his sake, but because anons are shipping something else and are just stubbornly holding on to it in spite of what's right in front of them.
>>33662521>He's already done enough for you, you don't have the heart to ask anymore. This is for his sake.
>>33662521> Ask him now while you have the nerve.At the least I feel like we should get it out so we're not heading back with any regrets.
>>33662653> Ask him now while you have the nerve.story over shipping

>>33662521> He's already done enough for you, you don't have the heart to ask anymore. This is for his sake.>>33662501>“What about you? Weren't you all about Hao?”Wait, what, she was serious.
>>33662521>[x] Ask him now while you have the nerve.
>>33662521>[X] Ask him now while you have the nerve.It'd be one thing if it was for his sake, but this is just anons being shitty shippers.

>>33662521> Ask him now while you have the nerve.Either we do it now, or Marine does it for us.
>>33662521welp, jojo is marked for death.

>>33662521>Ask him now while you have the nerve.Because it doesn't even mean we'll stay with him for the rest of the quest, or even get together with him in the first place.You guys are being really shitty about this.
I hope Jojo and Devon do the fusion dance and end this conflict once and for all
>>33662521> He's already done enough for you, you don't have the heart to ask anymore. This is for his sake.>>33662905It's because people know Prof has been keen on forcing Kurojo on us for a while. This one was an especially devious move from him, because it's obvious there would be people who'd vote to keep Kurojo just to spite shippers. Me, I'm voting just to show Prof that he's a pretty bad guy.
Vote end. Ceru is asking jojo.
>>33662955Marine would have asked Jojo anyways, wouldn't she?
>>33662940It's not forcing.We already told Prof to have romance be handled in-character, to prevent shipping stalemates.And right now, Jojo is a damn good choice.
>>33663014People told Prof that he could develop Ceru to actually feel it, but not to forcefully pick it for everyone.
>>33663055How is this forceful?
>>33663014He's been forcing Kurojo on us by having EVERY reaction with him ever since we entered the city be 'romantically charged'. Even if we just wanted to talk normally to him, Prof inevitably turned it into shipping. We even went to just talk to Marine and he went and made it about Kurojo again.
>>33663083Don't reason with shippers. It can't be done.
>>33663084>>33663122>"Hey Marine, how ya doin?">"Oh, hey Ceru. Is Jojo alright, I saw him moping earlier. You say anything to him?"PERFECTLY NORMAL DIRECTION OF CONVERSATION.
Devonfags really make me dislike the pairing.
>>33663084>We even went to just talk to Marine and he went and made it about Kurojo again.If you didn't want it to be about him, what did you want to talk about?Everybody just voted for Marine without any details.
>>33663138Kurojo's been moping since the beginning. He's been avoiding us already for a while. It was inevitable, whether we chose to spoke to Marine before or now, that Prof would have had her ask this.
>>33662940>>33663084Nigger, if people vote for it, they vote for it. Instead of rationalizing everything as some kind of devious deception every time you don't get your way, maybe you should... not do that instead?
>>33663197I don't actually need to 'rationalize' anything if people blatantly stated that they voted for it because they dislike shippers voting against it.
>>33663084Because we're filled with hormones and he's very attractive without being kind of creepy about it like Hao is.And Marine isn't blind, she know Ceru wants him more than Ceru does. This is exactly the kind of thing she'd have us do.
>>33663189Exactly. It's perfectly normal that she'd ask about him and try to get Ceru involved with someone who's ONLY been a great bro that we've been kind of friendzoning.
>>33663174Kurojofags really make me dislike the pairing.>>33660765>>33661055>>33661079>>33661101
>>33663243>ignoring all the awkward momentsanon pls
>>33663220Because you're being shitty for voting against it, due to completely ignoring in-character attraction in favor of one or two moments with some of the Rockets back home who think we're dead.
>>33663241Ceru 'wants' Kurojo because Prof made it that way. It wasn't actually voted for. Which leads us to the problem here>>33663014With Prof mistaking 'developing' a character with 'choosing on his own' how to develop that character. We may as well have avoided interacting with Kurojo completely if he was only going to make every interaction with him romantic.
>>33663293And in that case, my statement of Prof being devious has been completely legitimized.
>>33663327It wasn't voted for because otherwise nothing would happen ever.Even if she was attracted to Devon/Bruise/Goldenrod, it certainly didn't reach the level of "love" and that she'd "save herself" for them.That's ridiculous.
>>33663422It wasn't voted for because people didn't want to be attracted to Kurojo.
>>33663459>It wasn't voted for because I didn't want to be attracted to Kurojo.ftfy
>>33663459Shitty people who are holding onto their fanfics and headcanons instead of what's in front of them.
>>33663505See, this is why Kurojofags are so horrible. You're a complete hypocrite. Mouthing off like that and disregarding the actual argument being made; that Prof has been forcing this for a long while and that this is the most blatant act he's done in pushing Kurojo on us.
>>33663422Errr, yeah.>Bruise. Pretty cool guy. Kind of look a brother. Could maybe dig.>Goldenrod, insufferable brat. Mommy issues. Masochist maybe. Chrona. Whiny little shit.>Devon. insufferable brat. Thinks he's hot shit. Kind of is. Insubordinate. Violent and potentially abusive. Almost killed us. Tsun-maybe dere. Devonfag husbando.>Kurojo. Conquers his fears. Keeps his promises. Tries in earnest. Shown open affection. Has been with Ceru through her puberty. Calls her pretty a lot. Friendzoning,>>33663555You're trying to push Devon on Ceru. She doesn't even LIKE him.
>>33663572He wants his tsundere (assuming there's dere at all) and he ain't gonna take a no.
>>33663572>You're trying to push Devon on Ceru. She doesn't even LIKE him.Yes, and? Have you read anything I've written? Ceru wouldn't even like Kurojo if Prof didn't write that she felt that way. Forget the fact that he's called Ceru pretty; why is it that the immediate and only reaction anyone can have towards that is to fall in love?
>>33663642It's like she's a teenager or something.
To the shipping people one way or another, I'd like to voice the opinion that Kurojo seems like a fine [First Official Boyfriend], Nice guy, Exotic, been through some adventures. However, with how chaotic the ranger life is it's not such a long-term prospect so what's the harm in accepting him while it's convenient and then moving on when it stops working out?
>>33663659No, I'm fine with the prospect. I was just voting against it to make a statement and to show how unreasonably defensive some anons can be>>33663631Like this guy.
>>33663676>Vote against it to make a statement.I'm glad you lost the vote.
>>33663657You were a teenager before, weren't you? Don't tell me you fell in love that easily.
>>33663698It's because I'm smart enough to actually understand people that I already knew it would win the vote, anon. Honestly, I've never had any doubt of what the players would vote for in any quest (unless it's a random power-up thing). QMing is all about manipulating people, after all.
>>33663642>Ceru wouldn't like the guy that saved her life if Prof didn't write that she felt that way.
>>33663764You're not blind enough to see how easily that can be turned around, right?
Working up the nerve, despite your internal conflict you finally let out a long breath as you finalize your decision.You're going to ask him. And after you ask him, it's up to him. Yes, it's up to him whether he wants to come with you or not.You head up to the quarterdeck, finding Kurojo swinging in his hammock. You creep in through the doorway, suddenly feeling very shy. “Uhm, hey Kurojo...” You say, as you slip him.He turns to you, looking down from his bunk,” Oh, hey there White... You need something?”You nod, taking a step up to him, finally looking at him, “Yeah, Jojo... About yesterday.”“Don't worry about it. I'm okay. Just kind of thinking. I've been thinking for a while.”“Jojo, please. I want you to listen to me for a sec, okay?” He slides his legs over, and looks down, hanging at the edge of the hammock precariously.“Alright...”You reach up to him, reaching for his hand, “Come... Come here, okay?” Tiny little flutterbies in your stomach, you grab Kurojo by the hand and pull him down. As he lands, you put your arms around him, putting your head against his chest.He's taken aback, “White?”“Shhh. Just listen.” You squeeze him tighter before letting go and looking up at him, “Jojo, I like you... I... I don't want to leave but I need to...” The words start to get stuck in your chest, eyes sting, and you push away the beginnings of tears. “I'm sorry that you're keeping your promise, and I really need to go home...” Your chest heaves as it works through the sobs, lip quivering.“I know... I know it's a lot to ask. But I need to ask.” You look him in the eye, and still yourself as much as you can.“When I leave... Will you come with me?”
Kurojo's beak cracks open as he searches your eyes. No words come out yet and you smile hopefully. With an exalted sigh, “It's a lot to ask.”You nod, the tears finally stopping. “I know.”“But you're asking...”You nod. “Uh huh”“I'll to think about it.”“Promise?”His hands touch your shoulders and he touches his forehead to yours. “Promise.”
>>33663920he's gonna die in the hunt isn't he?
>>33663945Stop saying that.
>>33663945I told you guys. Kurojo is dooomed.
>>33663945Of course he will.Or he'll die after the hunt, right before the timeskip.
>>33663920DEATH FLAGS EVERYWHERE IN THIS POST!!
>>33663980At least we don't have the kiss of yoko-OH SHIT WE DID KISS HIM.
>>33663945The love interests don't die in Dran quests until you fuck them. The second we take the bird dick, Kurojo will have the Grim Reaper chasing him around trying to give him a scythe enema.
>>33663920Dran, if you kill Jojo off i swear to all that is fucking holy, i will find you and kill your family.
>>33663980Who doesn't have death flags?Nala, Seralana, Marine, all doomed.
>>33664040That seems excessive.
>>33664040>anon>doing thingsanon pls, you're not fooling anyone
>>33664092Jojo is a fucking bro, right down to the core. I dont give a shit about the fucking husbando retards in this thread, Jojo of all people deserves to live, else there is something fucking wrong with the gods damn universe.
>>33664129Precisely why he must die. This world is too shit for him.
>>33664177FUCK YOU YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!!!! WHAT THE FUCK DID JOJO EVER DO TO OFFEND THE UNIVERSE?? HUH!?!?!?!!?No you just want your fucking precious shipping shit to happen cuz your a cunt. Fuck off.
>>33664213Haha, oh wow. This guy. The self-delusion and hypocrisy runs deep.
>>33664213dude chill its just a character in a quest a good character but still a character. so take a deep breath and ignore the guys trying to get a reaction out of people
>>33664274it's that excessive punctuation conspiracy guy, I think.
>>33664129He's been a bro, but he's not very good at keeping himself alive.
So we should just stay on the boat and blast electo Leviathan with Energy ball?
You spend most of the day watching Seralana up on deck, resolving to join her for practice tomorrow. You fire shots off into the horizon, a part of you wondering if any of your attacks could reach a cloud.Seralana goes through her motions the next day and you join her, picking up a spare Araraki Glaive. It's a strange weapon and seems unwieldy at first, but you find that it's actually very well balanced. Seralana teaches you some of the basic movements and you catch on rather quickly, having observed her before.Eventually you get tired of using the weapon and return it, though it's not like you didn't enjoy using it. You're just not used to having your hands occupied... And it's been a long time since you held anything like that. Brings you right back to your days in Cerulean.You sit beside Seralana, the two of you partaking in your own refreshments. “White.” She says, as a whisper.You look to her, with wide eyes, this is the first she's ever referred to you by name. “Uhm, yeah. What's up Sera?”“We have been thinking... Of Serebyi...”“Yeah, what about her?”“She spoke to you, and us... And you said that Araraki could leave and find peace.” She pauses for a moment, draining away the rest of her drink. “ We want to travel. Elder said We are getting old for apprenticing. So we think world will make us wiser.”“So... You want to go on the ship with the Smolder?”“Yes... Even if they bad. We think it help us understand Serebyi's peace. We want to understand why she no return. We think you are clue.”You smile to her, a bit bashful, “Well, if it works for you, it works for me. Uh, what about those eggs?”“An Elder takes care of. Hatch into shiny little babies... They will grow strong, and then they will go elsewhere.”You don't really want to ask her what “elsewhere” is... But it'll be nice to see her for a bit longer in any case...
>>33663920Oh shit, I hope he doesn't die.Curveball, Marine dies instead.Nah, we'll probably get some kind of choice like "Marine/Sera is about to be eaten, but Kurojo is sinking into the inky depths!!! Who save?!?!", and then we get to watch a giant clusterfuck erupt in the thread.
>>33664385SO, 200 posts in. The thread's gonna end at the very start of the fight in a boring cliffhanger, huh?
>>33664444Save marine always.
>>33664213>implyingCorrection. The universe offends Jojo. Why would you bring up the inverse of that, traitor?
>>33664444Really can't let Marine die.The araraki, though...
>>33664444I dunno, the idea of Marine punching her way out of the belly of the beast would be pretty metal...
>>33664444Kurojo can't actually sink in the ocean water, though. If he was unconscious, he'd float. And the Prof is pretty keen on Seralana. He's been that way with her since the start (there were like two opportunities to meet her and the second one was obvious bait).
>The Hunt Begins...Night falls and the ship begins to slow as it slips out of the speed-current, the rocking and skipping across the waves gradually coming into a steady sail and only when the wind will permit.The ship's headed for a great outcropping of bleached salt-enchrusted stones standing tall and leading into a brief inland.Ever hand is up on the deck in as much armor as they're willing to risk. Some Smolder tied themselves to the ship by metal cables, others prime the cannons, and Khakori man the harpoon turrets.You and Marine are set to be the first to engage and to continue engagement if it tries diving too deep.The harpoons will keep the beast from getting too far, but they're liable to break. Too few harpoons and the beast can just shake them off, too many and it may drag the ship into the briny blue. The Smolder plan to bombard the creature, and the Araraki are ready, gathering natural energy for a volley of energy balls.The ship's sails are gathered up, leaving just enough for a steady sail as it begins circling partway around the island, the only noise at this point, the occasional calling for the ones manning the wheel and sails to adjust them. The rhythm of waves breaking against the hull of the ship.Hao's Imperial Impaler is primed, ready to go, and now...A Khakori smashes a colossal gong, sending a ripple through the water, breaking against the stones.Everyone stands in position, you keep to the starboard rear with Marine ready to jump overboard with harpoons, Seralana and Jojo right beside you. They've volunteered to breach the dark blues, ropes attached to their feet at the edge of the ship to ensure they wouldn't get lost.
For a moment, you had the idea, you aren't sure where you got it from, but this IDEA that you'd be fighting in the dark of the ocean...But the ocean around the island turns white.Your hair stands on end, and the readings from your index pick up as your Volt Orb receives additional charge, a wave of static washing over the boat.“What?” You whisper and the waves break, a sea-borne mountain of white scales and crackling blue electricity pass by the ship, a rolling, snaking wave that buries itself back into the sea.It's far larger than you could have imagined. The only thing that you can think of now, standing atop of what must be the equivalent of a frigate. The monster is equal to, if not greater in size to the very boat that your standing upon.A smolder unleashes a wail of despair, only to be backhanded by another. They unleash a warcry, repositioning and aiming the cannons at their quarry.Lighting gushes out of the water and you swallow. You'd heard that this thing is ALWAYS charged...> Enter the white waters. You're going in for vitals.> Hold steady, assist the Araraki in energy barrage.> (Other)
>>33664713Last time I thought prof was pretty keen on a female npc, she got her spine ripped out while she was still alive.
>>33664852> Hold steady, assist the Araraki in energy barrage.lets stay out of the water inhabited by electric super monster if it can be helped
>>33664871He's been pushing for interactions with her and he's been trying pretty hard to make her more likable.
>>33664902You think that makes her safe or something?
>>33664852> Hold steady, assist the Araraki in energy barrage.Tire this guy out first.
>>33664852I hope those damn smolders are a good eye with those harpoonsI sort of want to help the harpoon process with lockon. We'll jump in with marine soon. Hopefully it isn't CONSTANTLY shocking all the time.
>>33664920Yep. He's not letting us just leave her behind or forget about her.
>>33664871There was that other bitch too that was just gunned down like a dog...
>>33664959You're in for a rude awakening, then, if you continue to follow Dran quests. I'm not saying she's guaranteed to die, but Dran has absolutely no qualms about killing off characters that he wanted us to like more.
>>33664959>implying she won't die horribly and haunt us>implying Liliac isn't going to get a new besty>implying we won't wake up one day to find Sera and Lilac sucking out body fluids from a certain pussy
>>33665022I've followed them.So I can say that this character is one of his personal pets.
>>33664852>Look for the weapons of the beast: where it releases electricity, and where it stores glands. Fire Psybeams at those.I'm not suggesting we do it just yet, but is our AQUATIC 3D manuever gear intact?
>>33664852> Hold steady, assist the Araraki in energy barrage.Let's hold off getting zapped for as long as possible. No reason to get tazered unless it becomes necessary.
>>33665090Yeah. Our equipment was returned to us and Akabaron made sure that it was all in working order. We've also got the anti-paralysis medicine (along with the antidote), so there's that.
>>33665090Actually, it is.
>>33664852>>[X] Hold steady, assist the Araraki in energy barrage.
>>33665144GREAT, at least we won't have to rely on swimming in electrically charged waters when it comes to it....you know, it's a REALLY good thing we never got brine
So if we take out its electrical powers by breaking the horn/puncturing the gland/whatever, will that allow sharpedos to come and wreck all the ships?
“It's too soon to go in right?” You look to the others, and rush to a harpoon. “I'm going to assist with firing, shoot at it with whatever you've got, aim for its joints and vitals!”You call back, and commandeer a harpoon turret from a Khakori, that willingly turns it over. He's seen you shoot before. With your remoraid implant you have to actually be dared to miss if you get time enough to work out the trajectory...You don't see an eye, but you do see an armored hide and sparkling blue growths upon its back, bursting with white from the electric charge. Those don't look soft...> Fire at the Scales, aim for a spaces between.> Fire at the blue growths.> Wait for a better target...>(Other) Besides harpooning.
>>33665396> Fire at the blue growths.take away its best weapon
>>33665396> Fire at the blue growths.Psybeam first, since it doesn't really care about armor.wait, our head is free. we can fire a Psybeam AND fire the harpoon
>>33665396> Fire at the Scales, aim for a spaces between.
>>33665396> Fire at the blue growths.It might not work, but it's worth a shot if it means possibly shutting the damn electricity off.
>>33665396>fire at the blue growthsThose look zapular. Important for zapping. Gotta get some of these metal harpoon lines in there and fucking up his charge ability.
>>33665476Yeah I guess we can do that.
>>33665396>> Fire at the blue growths.
>>33665396>>[X] Fire at the blue growths.
The harpoons fly. Some go wide, others glance off, but a few do stick. Yours flies right for one of the blue growths, glancing off futiley. They're harder than you expected. Those'll require a larger impact of some sort. Moments after the first volley of harpoons, the Araraki unleash their first barrage and their green energy flies into the waters, unleashing green flashes that ripple the waves and paint the sea in splashes of color. A moment later, the lines go taught, the ship getting pulled for a moment before suddenly going slack. Something hits the ship, rocking everyone on deck. You watch hard, for the thing to rise, but cannons go off and down it dives once againIt's then that you realize, it's taken out ships before... It must know to attack the underbelly. If the hull goes then you're all...The Araraki Hunters are already running below deck to do what they can in regards to the issue. You can only hope that the monster hasn't breached the hull. You look back over the edge and Marine calls to you, holding a rope and harpoom in hand, “White, I'm going in, gonna stick this right in its shnozz!!! You leaps overboard into the charged waters.“Marine, wait!” You call out as you lean over railing, seeing her enter the ivory sea.Seralana's the next to go, discarding her glaive in favor of a harpoon, and diving down with a deep breath.They're going on... What are you going to do?> Man one of the cannons!> Reload the harpoon, make the next shot count.> Dive in after them.> (other)
>>33665396>> Fire at the blue growths.Lets just get the pissing it off stage over with now.
>>33665396>Wait for a better target...I'm pretty sure the blue growths are just decorative.
>>33665702> Reload the harpoon, make the next shot count.hit it in the eye, piss it off
>>33665702> Dive in after them.No way in hell are we letting them go in alone.
>>33665702Would freezing over the underbelly reinforce it without impacting its ability to float?
>>33665702> Man one of the cannons!Blue thing. Cannon. Make it happen.
>>33665702> Dive in after them.Can't look like a punk bi... nope, gotta restrain that pride, we a gunner, and gunners gonna gun.> Man one of the cannons!
>>33665702> Reload the harpoon, make the next shot count.
>>33665702>Dive in after them.
>>33665702> Man one of the cannons!Go for the blue thing again.
>>33665702>Man one of the cannons!Blunt damage will probably be effective.
>>33665702Changed my mind>>33665772> Man one of the cannons!Take out the blue growth with the canon.
>>33665827The blue things are worthless. Like the red things on Feraligatr.
>>33665868The blue things are what's making the electricity.
>>33665868>>33665905What pokemon is this again?
>>33665785Indeed. You could go about and try fixing it. if the damage worsens. Keep it in mind?
>>33665959It's not a pokemon.
>>33665959It's a monster hunter creature. The Ivory Lagiacrus, apparently.>>33665988Yeah, sure.
>>33665959Monster hunter add in. Dran has LOTS of those around.
>>33665988We'll keep it in mind.
You abandon the Harpoon to the Khakori you commandeered it from, “Fire when you see an eye!” You shout back as you sprint over to squeeze yourself into the firing operations of a smolder.“I'll aim, you fire.” You instruct.“What we try to hit?”“The blue things, they're making the electricity!”The Smolder roars out a command to the others in his tongue. “We all will fire on Bleuk!” The waters below surge, the beast retreating up, and breaching, its blue spine encrusted back crackling out a furious charge.You can taste the Ozone on the air. The cannons fire, detonating and crushing in on those parts, forcing the thing to recoil, diving down, twisting into the water, shards of still sparking scales littering the waves, the electrical output flickering some in the ocean's waters. Like a light that needs changing.Good, it's damaged.The ship rocks out from beneath you as a crushing blow is dealt. You catch yourself before falling off on the other side of the rail, and look down to see that the beast's rammed the hull after the crippling attack.It looms, surging and writhing beneath you, stray, errant sparks from its mutilated blue crystals shooting every which way.As its backing out, you see a series of green lights, the Araraki that had descended must be fighting it off, but a hole of that size...> Drop down and run across its body, give it an eyeful of icicle.> Climb up and prepare the next volley of cannonfire.> Wait for it to retreat and then freeze up the ship's hole You can't leave it like that.> (Other)
>>33666286> Wait for it to retreat and then freeze up the ship's hole You can't leave it like that.Well, may as well repair the damage now.
>>33666286>Wait for it to retreat and then freeze up the ship's hole You can't leave it like that.
>>33665702>>[X] Reload the harpoon, make the next shot count.
>>33666286>otherOffer up our virgin pussy and ass to it. Even if it splits us in half, we'll die filled with hot monster cock
>>33666286> Wait for it to retreat and then freeze up the ship's hole You can't leave it like that.guess we better stop the boat from sinking
>>33666286>>[X] Wait for it to retreat and then freeze up the ship's hole You can't leave it like that.
so I advise against damaging the blue growths anymore, because >>33665256
>>33666516Uh, that was a dumb idea. Forget about it.
>>33666516Arent we enslaving it? Wont doing that allow the Sharpedoes to kill at us anyway?
>>33666516Yeah, just a bit is enough. We want the electricity for ourselves, after all.>>33666286> Wait for it to retreat and then freeze up the ship's hole You can't leave it like that.Gotta have the boat to salvage this thing, after all.
>>33666563We're killing it. So that we can harvest its parts and use it for the big ark the Smolders are making.
>>33666588If its dead, it wont make electricity anymore anon.
>>33666612Uh, try reading the previous threads, anon. This was all stated inside the story. You can't even blame your memory for this considering the threads were run consecutively.
>>33666516Not crazy about changing the battle strat over unconfirmed speculation...
>>33666760To be fair, this is something that should have been discussed beforehand. Heavily.
>>33666821It's fine. Hell, everything STAYED out of this huge area of ocean because of this monster. They're not going to return the second its dead. It would probably be weeks. Just use your head.
>>33666858I dunno about weeks, Sharks aren't exactly low on the food chain. If they smell blood, they might decide to join in.>Ivory Lag almost dead>Kill Steal by 20 Sharpedos impaling the neckBut I'll defer to this being unconfirmed for now.
the important thing is we don't break the zappy bits TOO much.
>>33666959And all the sharkpedos ran away from this thing. It's not as if this thing hasn't been wounded before; it just dives deep into the ocean, far beyond the reach of any hunters. That's where the survivor stories come from. Because they managed to damage it enough to scare it off.
The beast slowly, but surely removes its head, hastened primarily by the abuse it's getting from the Araraki defenders.Positioning yourself against the rail, you push off and let yourself dive down some before regaining your balance and launching your 3PMG's harpoon just below the railing to rappel down to the damage. You freeze from the bottom, channeling a great deal of your power into ensuring that the hole's plugged up with frozen seawater. Who know how long it'll hold, but it'll keep the hunt from being a failure.There are more eruptions of green and a putrifying brown staining the waters.The beast flees, straining the harpoon lines and sweeps around, a great white wave surging forth, washing over the ship and forcing distance.Lines attached to the wave strain and you see Seralana and Marine fall onto the deck, Kurojo catching the lizard as she slumps heavily in his arms.With a leap and a release of your safery line, your check on her damage. She coughs up water and gets back up in short order, eyes a bit hazy from the experience.“Salty...” She whispers as she's gagging.The ship moves again, the cannonfire ends with wet fuses and powder, Smolder retreating below deck for replacement supplies.The beast lunges out of the water with an open maw, like the white ocean itself breaking into a fleshy, biolumenscent maw.Energy gathers within, sparking and crackling, getting brighter and brighter...The Araraki and Smolder are below deck, the Imperial Impaler is out of range, the cannons are wet.It unleashes the beam and the night turns to day.>End Thread
>>33667054Dat Hyper Beam.
>>33667054Gosh I hope it missed
>>33667054>it used hyper beamCHARRRGGGGEEEwell in the next thread maybethanks for running profis the monster a boy or a girl?
>>33667054Well, now that it's over; the fight hasn't been exciting thus far. I'm HOPING this isn't supposed to be the "half-way" point, Prof, because that would just be too sad. It's just too mechanical.Also, who's speaking here?>“Salty...” She whispers as she's gagging.Seralana? Since Marine can breathe underwater.>the Imperial Impaler is out of rangeAre you saying that the monster is OUT of the Imperial Impaler's range? Because that's what I'm getting.
>>33667129>Also, who's speaking here?Sera. The last referred to female character was "the lizard", so that is what the "she" is referring to. Pronouns stay with the same person until a new one is named.
>>33667106>>33667128We can only hope that it wasn't hyper beam.Or that it WAS and it missed entirely.
>>33667157Mm. Thought so. There was like this mental break in my head for some reason that couldn't connect it even though I knew it logically.>>33667179Well. It's a beam, anon.
>>33667179It was Hyper Beam. We probably shouldn't have gone below decks, since now we have a much bigger hole to deal with.
>>33667221pretty ending up in the drink was destiny. Not that I really mind
What do we have to do to get hyperbeam?buff up a beam attack enough?
Next thread is Tuesday 20:00 Servertime.After that, it will go on Hiatus.Over(Human)Limit
>>33667399Finally I'll get to have some fucking sleep.
>>33667399>>33667412I mean seriously. My eyes hurt.
>>33667412>>33667434Are... Are you the bleeding eyes guy?
>>33667443He's not, because I am.Thankfully they haven't been doing it for a while. Never did go to a doctor though.
>>33667443No. Different guy. But I feel like they are.
speaking of eyes, my grandma is legally blindmacular degeneration (it means you're very old)she can still see like people and stuff just don't ask her to read anything
>>33667399>hiatusWell, guess I'll be back in like five months or whenever you're picking this up again.
>>33667343Octillery learns Hyper Beam at level 58.
>>33667461Dangerous condition, you are eerily close to becoming A SHOUNEN ANTIHERO!Are one or more of your parents dead, do you have a plucky friend who you hate, and could someone drop rice paper on your head and split it you're so edgy?
>>33667487Huh. Well, that's something for the future.
>>33667504>>33667487so basically, buff beam attack
>>33667054So how many died, and how sunk is the ship?>yfw we're swept overboard again>wash up in Kanto
>>33667461>Never did go to a doctor Dude...
>>33667513>Just Ceru, Seralana, and Hao>Marine, Kurojo, and Nala end up at the Dome
>>33667511Nah. I'm fine with upgrading Water Gun. Just so that when we reach level 10, our normal Water Gun will be like this guy.
>>33667558Hao isn't on the ship. He gave a speech and rightly fucked off to sit back down in his comfy chair.Nala is also away on this one.
>>33667562I'd rather Rank 10 Water Gun starts to compete with this guy.>>33667593Just greentexting, not really serious.
>>33667593if Hao was on the boat, it'd be the love boat
>>33667593Oh, I thought she came? She did talk about how she "lived long enough"?
So did Dran ruse us when he brought attention to the whole "patch hole in ship" and made us remember it?I'm thinking we should have pushed the attack, instead of giving it a chance to charge the laser.Especially since now we're all too dead to take advantage of it needing to recharge.
>>33667717birds flyfish swimtg takes the passive, conservative option
>>33667673I guess she thought about it and decided "you know what nah. I like living."
>>33667717Wouldn't be the first time.On the other hand, there wasn't much "pushing" that would make a difference, other than diving(shock damage, but probably not hit by Hyper Beam and gives us a good position later), or harpooning the eye.
>>33667717Someone needs to make a flowchart for dran quests.>Is Dran Rusing us?>YesHe's totally rusing.>No>Remember that you're in a Dran quest.>Is Dran Rusing>No>Remember that you're in a Dran Quest.
>>33667733Or we take the stupidly aggressive option repeatedly.
>>33667778the pendulum swings
>>33667773Harpooning the eye would've been a major hit. We should've taken it.
>>33667717It was pretty obvious he wanted to end the thread with the hyper beam, anon. One way or another, there just isn't anything to stop it.
>>33667797Waiting for Lockon to kick in would take a while though. Would be cool if it hit right before Hyper Beam, but that wouldn't actually increase anyone(important)'s chances of survival.>>33667820I don't think Prof knows any other way. I'd tell you to leave if it's so bad, but then the same could be said for myself.
>>33667820True, but we could have determined where we were in relation to the Hyper Beam maybe.
I'm still just going to pretend that it wasn't hyper beam.
>>33667884It was definitely Hyper Beam.Prof warned us it knew Hyper Beam and that's what we've got.
>>33667865>I don't think Prof knows any other way. I'd tell you to leave if it's so bad, but then the same could be said for myself.Uh, I'm just telling you it was obvious. It doesn't take a genius to remember someone's patterns?
>>33667913>Do cliffhanger>Don't do cliffhanger.Anon, anon...
I wonder if Seralana's spooky heritage can enable her to Ghost through that Normal attack.It'd be nice to have one of our friends survive the attack, you know, to drown when the ship sinks due to the enormous hole the Hyper Beam caused.
>>33667717I dunno, for once I think we did well, as opposed to standing in front of a Hydro Pump, or jumping headlong into horribly electrified water.
>>33667948I don't think armor has ghost properties. Is Seralana going to be the first Araraki to get fanservice?...by the way, does Seralana have 2 personalities based on her heritages?
>>33667941Do you understand what we're talking about or did you just jump into this?
>>33668011She knows Ghost moves like those Jackass Araraki did.She used Shadow Ball and shit, so she's a little ghosty.
>>33667971Don't be retarded, anon. Nothing was actually done at all. Prof doesn't really encourage creativity in fights since he's not very imaginative.
>>33668056But her armor isn't for sure. Even if she survives unharmed, that armor is toast.>>33667913I think you implied that ending threads this way was a bad thing.
