With Elle's permission, you load yourself up- Throwing on a fresh shirt, stashing a few supplies alongside your dagger in Elle's bags. After a moments consideration, you pack the crossbow as well. Maybe you'll get a chance to practice? Armed and armoured, you head off to find Sara.Your smallest sister has cleared a bit of space at the edge of the nest, and is currently surrounded by books. She scans one page, then turns to another book entirely, mouth forming silent words as she reads. She has got your father's journal out, as well as a pair of simple spell texts. You blink, feeling like you're back in school for a moment. You wonder if each spell will need a bibliography?You tap her gently on the shoulder, and she smiles up at you."Lyra!""Hey- I'm going to take Jin to see the stars tonight, yes? Would you like to come along?"She raises her head proudly, taking on what she must think is a sophisticated tone."Of course! It wouldn't be safe for you without a 'Majjis of the stars'""I think it's 'Magus'"She flushes red immediately, biting her lower lip in desperation."A-a-anyway, I need to get my spellbook ready- So I'll get that- I'll get that right now so wait for me-"She scoops her books up and retreats up the tree while you smile. You turn and meander to Jin, who's perched herself on the edge of the nest, preening herself carefully."Jin, we'll leave to go see the stars in the woods soon, yes? We're just gonna wait for Sara."Shes got that glow in her eyes again. A wide-eyed sparkle of determination."Yes, yessss. I will touch the stars tonight!""I don't think you'll be able to take one, though.""Not yet. It is a start, yes? A beginning. If we cannot catch one here, then I will chase them into the heavens and pluck them from the sky!"
>>34343404Is that even possible? Jin continues as you wonder, detailing how her wings will encompass clouds, and how she'll fly higher than even her grandmother.There's magic, wolves who spit lightning. Maybe she can. Maybe she could learn Sara's magic, or something like it. You wonder how magic works, how people have the gift or not.You'll have to ask Mom when you get back. There's so much you don't know.Sara calls out her readiness, scurrying up to the two of you with a small bag slung over her shoulders. You yell that you're leaving to Mom, scooping Jin up and scratching at her tufts absent-mindedly as you descend. She makes a small, satisfied noise, twisting her head to guide your fingers.Touching down on the forest floor, you place Jin at her usual post, and set out through the darkening wood.2d100, please.>Follow the river in, like Mom said>Head through the trees like last time>Chat as you go(Topics?)>Other(?)Twitter: twitter.com/REQMXCharacter Sheet and Misc:http://pastebin.com/u/REQMArchive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Re-Monsterorhttp://archive.moe/tg/search/tripcode/!!7fb3j+Ac+pZ%20/type/op/

>>34343419>Follow the river in, like Mom said>Chat as you go(Topics?)How is Sara doing with the books? Seems like she's really working through them.The rolls worry me slightly.
How does magic even work? Writing!
>>34343630I'm reasonably sure the prevailing magical theory is, "I ain't gotta explain shit."
You walk in silence, the rustling leaves accompanying the audible clicks of your limbs as you travel. The route to the river is easy enough, and it's not long before you emerge beside the running water. The water shimmers with the light of stars a great deal more distant than the ones you plan on seeing, and you settle into an easy pace beside it.Your mind is bursting with questions. The longer you spend here, the less you realize you understand- Magic, evolution, even history is something you've only picked up in bits and pieces. You turn your human half to face your sister, catching her attention with a gesture."Sara, what's magic like?"Jin turns, giving the little spider her full attention as she opens and closes her mouth, forming half gestures with her hands. She sorts herself out in a few minutes, and clears her throat, straightening her back and adopting Mom's lecturing tone."Magic is the formation and manipulation of Mana, combined with the refinement through the chanting of spells. There are 3 parts: The spell itself, internal mana control; the refinement of mana, and external mana control; where you form the magic outside your body and wield it."It takes me a minute to put together her explanation- It's a bit hard to visualize things you can't sense."So you.... Draw mana in, change it to suit the spell, then chant and cast?"Sara's wearing the look of someone pleased they're being understood."Ephram wanted to know, but he didn't get it at all! He just stared, then left to hunt!"She stomps one leg ineffectually as she walks.
>>34344318You smile again, and Jin chimes in from behind you."What does it feel like? When you touch the stars?"Sara's face lights up."It's- It's like being warm all over! Like there's something in your blood, and it's thrumming and tingling up your spine, and it moves through you, and you can touch it and move it, but without using your hands. Like it's a part of you."She looks exultant, like she can't wait to reach the clearing. She turns and looks at the two of, hands flexing, an open-mouthed grin of excitement."It's amazing! I can't wait!"Jin nods, fast enough to shift her on your back. The excitement is definitely infectious."We- I want to learn! I want to touch the stars, feel them in my talons as I fly!"Sara looks a bit doubtful. "You need to be able to use magic to start, I think. Dad's books talk about being able to learn other types of magic- But you have to have magic.""Hnnnn. Maybe when I grow, yes? We shall have to see. There is time. As long as I keep growing, I will live long enough."
>>34344333That catches your attention."If you evolve you'll live longer?""Mom told us already, Lyra," Sara chides you gently."Wha- When? I don't remember that at all!""It was the first night you trained! She had us all gather up after dinner, and you... Hm. Actually, I think you fell asleep."You blush a bit, heat spreading across your face."I was tired! She really didn't go easy on me!"Sara's giggled response is cut short as the river widens, the wide pool at the foot of the waterfall beckoning. She takes off for the centre, sprinting beneath the twisting constellations of the star magic. Jin follows suite, whipping through the air to dance among the slow moving orbs, cawing delight as she flew.You continue at your own pace, striding into the beautiful clearing as Sara draws a few orbs from the sky to spin around her with a laugh.>Leave them to it>Watch them? You can feel magic, maybe you can learn something.>Set yourself up a web target- You should be able to practice without wasting bolts.>Other(?)
>>34344361>Watch them? You can feel magic, maybe you can learn something.
>>34344361>>BIG SISTER DUTYSet up a sensory wire around the whole place, so you know when we have to scuttle to keep that "no fighting" promise.After that, then sure, weave a target and practice a bit. Heck, practice weaving too.Oh, and warn jin not to actually TOUCH the stars. A lizardman got burned by one.

These are some super good rolls
I'd actually sort of prefer it if we just had nomagics. I don't mind it being sara's special thing.
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>34344361>Watch them? You can feel magic, maybe you can learn something.Man, I wanted to be able to cast spells.
>>34344583It seems like the dice don't want us to either
>>34344361>Watch them? You can feel magic, maybe you can learn something.set up a few alert webs first if possible
>>34344611oh, that's good.We've got enough on our plate learning weaving and keeping up the fighting practice as is.Besides, we still need to become web batman.
I can FEEL the desperation in those rolls. Writing!
>>34344583A little something to cure small wounds is acceptable, chucking miniature stars at people can be Sara's thing.
>>34344583Well, there are different types of magic, I guess?If we had weeaboo fightan' magic or something, rather than stellar blasty magic, we wouldn't be imposing on Sara's thing.
>>34344787If we developed some sort of Jedi combat magic, I'd be very pleased.Feel attacks coming, know where to block or dodge. Being stronger and faster than we should be.
>>34344640>>34345281>>34344787I think we're all overlooking the obvious.spider senseThough for serious, maybe we can try to learn some more mundane medicine along the way. Potions and stitching shit.
>>34345318Spidey sense sounds legit but considering how we ended that fight in the ruins I'd love to see us choose something like berserker.
You look at the two of them playing a bit regrettably. You did promise Mom you'd keep them safe. With a sigh, you step into the forest proper, stringing lines at ground level, winding each together and drawing the 'warning line' back into the clearing with you.You set up shop near Sara- if you're going to play guard, you can at least watch the two of them. Sara has pulled a few orbs free, and she's racing Jin with them, the two spinning through the field of stars, hurtling around at breakneck speeds through the cool air.You focus your attention on Sara as she manipulates the orbs, feeling the power pool under her skin. Even magic as simple as this follows the 'rules' she was sharing- She draws in power, and you sense as it condenses, twisting over itself inside her. It arcs up her spine and down her arms, and you can feel the ripples as she manipulates the stars.Her whispered spells is mostly gibberish, though. Maybe it's more intent that language? You'll try and remember to set aside time to read through the books someday. You can't actually recall a time when you were so busy before.You might as well try your hand at magic while you're here, right. You calm yourself, closing your eyes and taking a deep breath. You can feel the ambient magic in the air, the vibrating sensation of power flowing all through the clearing. You try drawing it towards you, pulling at it with your senses, your will, everything. No luck.
>>34345589You can feel it against your skin, the whorls of power as Sara shifts the orbits of the balls, laughing idly. You try drawing the power in with a breath- and wind up blue in the face, with no more magic than before. It's a bit disappointing, you think.Not too bad, though- You're still a spear wielding hero. And a spider. The thought brings a smile to your face as Jin outstrips the stars overhead, twisting into a sharp dive that blows past her pursuers as she swoops down onto the two of you. Sara giggles and releases her captive stars, and the smoothly return to the twisting galaxy overhead.Jin is stretching this way and that, panting with exertion, and Sara sits down as she pulls a book free, conjuring a few stars of her own. You watch as they circle her head, the miniature spots of power sustaining them nothing like the ones above. You reach put without thinking, shoving at the sensation of power- and it responds, twitching in its orbit. Sara sits bolt upright, blinking rapidly as she turns to face you."Did you...?">I don't know- what just happened?>I couldn't draw magic in, but I can feel it, sort of?>I definitely did something>Other(?)and>Ask for help figuring it out>Ask for a book, try to look it up>Worry about it later.>Other(?)

>>34345613>I couldn't draw magic in, but I can feel it, sort of?>Ask for help figuring it outSeems like we've got some sort of magic sensor. Maybe we got it after the wolf zapped us?
>>34345613>I definitely did something>Ask for help figuring it out
>>34345613>I definitely did something- what just happened?>Ask for help figuring it out
>>34345613Huh, we might be magimagnetic.What happens if we actually try to grab one of her little lights?
>>34345735or maybe we're somehow magic resistantmaybe we can push it away a lot more easily than we can draw it it
>>34345764>>34345771We'll just have to test it and find out. Any ideas for tests we could do, beyond simply poking the lights and seeing what happens?
>>34345613>with a huff,>I can't seem to draw any power in, no matter how I try! I think I can manipulate what's already there, though?>Was it the same for you when you started? I must admit I'm a little jealous of you!
I am confused and I would like an explanation please.Writing.
>>34345771 Yeah the resistance thing might cover the whole being hit by a lighting bolt and shrugging it off. We're the Spideynaught?
>>34346099It could simply be that our initial talent for magic is in a different school, like how Sara is a Star Mage, but with effort she could learn other schools.
The oldest sister asking the youngest to teach her something, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.>Goodnight and good luck gents!
>>34346832We don't really do much teaching.We mostly learn stuff, and do defending/adventuring work.
Jin is watching the two of you with vague interest, but Sara is staring straight at you, waiting for an answer, and explanation. Something."I- Uh, I definitely did something? I mean, I can feel magic. Like when you do it? I can feel you pulling it in, and using it. I can feel something like waves when you cast- and the power of the spell, two."Sara is circling you now, an inquisitive look written all over her face."You moved magic. So- So you should have external mana control. You'd have to. Can you cast then? Just twist a bit of power together in your hands, and say 'Elsith'. It's a light spell, it's really easy."You shake your head as she paces around you."I can't. I mean, I can't draw in mana. I tried, but it didn't do anything?""If you can't draw mana... Maybe I can give you some? Or maybe you can just manipulate mana around you? There's nothing like this in the books! This is new! I can- I'll write a book! I'll need paper, and something to write with and- Oh. Here, here!"You can feel her draw power out of the air, then push it right back. You can feel the warmth of condensed mana floating from her hands as she holds them out to you. Jin hops up onto your shell, leaning around to get a better look at what you're doing."Just will it into a ball, and chant 'Elsith', okay? 'Elsith.'"You reach your hands over hers, pushing at the mana and feeling it respond. Sara lets out a shiver as you start to move it."It just- It feels really weird when you touch it? Like it's still connected to me, but it's touching you and moving."You purse your lips in concentration, twisting the magic into a swirling ball between you, and you lean in, whispering."Elsith."
The magic sparks, a raising glow between the two of you, and Sara looks up to say something- and it's lost in the ear pounding WHUMP as the spelll flares, throwing you a few feet backwards, crashing to the ground in a daze. You blink to clear the spots from your eyes- this must be what a seeing a flashbang is like.Jin squawks above you, having launched into the air sometime during your flight. Sara staggers back to her feet, eyes wild as she starts laughing uncontrollably. She rushes towards you, her hair blown into a mess by the blast, and grabs your hands as you pick yourself up."You- You just- Magic doesn't do that! The spell was stronger than it should have been! Like, if the mana had been more refined, or you'd used more than you should've. Maybe- Maybe you can channel magic? Or even just repel it? If you can manipulate other peoples magic, I don't know, there's so much stuff- We'll have to test everything, I'll need so much paper-"Jin glides in for another landing behind you, trying to settle her feathers in the aftermath of your little explosion. She nods once towards you before interrupting your sister."So then, Lyra can use magic? Of sorts?""Uh- It's closer to say she can use mana? And maybe not really magic?""That is probably good then, yes?""Oh, yes. It's fascinating, I want to-""That was very loud, though."Sara blinks."Well, yes.""Then, I think we should be going, yes?"The three of you turn and look at the forest, shadows dancing in the light of the stars. There's a distant roar, a chorus of howls. You're the first to break the silence."I think now would be a good time to head home, then."Both nod rapid agreement. It takes a moment for Sara to gather up her scattered books, and then you're on the road, heading towards home.Roll 1d100 alongside this, please.>Talk further on the way home (about?)>Practice your 'not magic'?>Walk a bit in the water- You don't want to be followed home>Other(?)>Next post delayed while I eat.

>>34346962Can we walk in the water a little anyway? Sounds fun.I sort of want to, one of these days, set up a nice big web over the river. Seems like a good place to set up to catch birds and such.
Rolled 97 (1d100)>>34346962>Practice your 'not magic'?I'm really curious as to what we can do.

>>34348142Well, it's obviously not going to be the first one if she cant take in Mana...
You still feel like someone grabbed your brain and gave it a good solid rattle, but there's enough going on upstairs for you to usher Sara into the water as you go. Running water means you can't be tracked by scent- and you're close enough to the trees that anything large enough to threaten you and flying won't be a problem. You speed away from the waterfall, the running water pushing you forward and adding that little edge to your pace.There's a few minutes of frantic speed, as you try and get some distance between you and the clearing, but you gradually slow as it fades in the distance. Sara perks up as the three of you slow down, running her hands together excitedly. She calls up a few lights before turning to you."Okay. Okay, I'm going to throw these at you, yes? As an experi- As practice. You should practice shifting mana. I'll record this and I'll try and look up more spells- stuff I don't have the mana for. If you make things stronger, maybe you can use spells with less mana. Or maybe you just aren't attuned to star magic? We can try some fire stuff, or water stuff from dad's book-""Sara, I think you're getting a little ahead of yourself. What am I doing with the lights?""Deflect them!"The orbs spiral up into the air- and then one shoots towards you. You lash out with a free hand- and the ball passes harmlessly through it on its trajectory."You need to focus- External mana manipulation is a matter of willpower. Want it to move, don't use your hands."She's using the teacher voice again. You're beginning to worry that you sister is a bit of a mad scientist. Mad magician? Maybe just a witch. What's the appropriate word?
>>34348062She is either a Spellbreaker, or a Mana Amplifier.It sounds like the second, as if she amplified the mana so much the spell exploded because of a massive excess of mana.
>>34348209>>34348142I just think we have a wonky magic interaction.We can punch it
Jin laughs as the orbs shoot around you, and you bring your attention back on topic. You sharpen your focus, and swing your arm at the orb as it comes in. It zips off in another direction till you release it again, while Sara twitches in response. She mutters something about 'aetheric links' and 'manipulation of controlled mana' before firing the lights at you two or more at a time. You get up to five at a time before you can't go any further. Directing your attention like this is giving you a splitting headache. You tell her as much."Oh, that's normal. I did the same when I started- it's mana strain.""I can't draw mana, though," you groan out."External mana control is the hard bit of spells. Do it wrong and they'll explode, or fizzle, or just burst in your face and you'll be pretty much blind with a brutal headache for a day.""That sound like experience talking."Sara coughs and looks away."Oh! Look! We are almost home it is time to get out of the water we should tell mom about what happened ha ha!"She zips away as Jin cackles, pulling herself onto the bank."She tries very hard in front of you, yes.""She's got amazing magic. She doesn't have to try."Jin fixes you with a look as you reach your home clearing. You pluck the harpy off your shell, holding her in front of you as you climb."You understand that your sisters compete with you, yes?""What? I love my sisters. I don't compete with them.""Lyra- sometimes, you are not very smart, yes?"Your mother quiets the excited Sara down, throwing a blanket around her shoulders and sending you all off to bed. You retire for the evening, still dazed and more than a little confused.
>>34348209I mean that we're like an atronach who siphons off someone else's mana, but can't restore it on our own. Gotta get all snuggly with Sara to replenish our stores each night.
>>34348305______________________________________________________________YOU HAVE EXCEEDED THE MINIMUM REQUIRED LEVELSPECIAL REQUIREMENTS ________ _________ __________ CLEAREDRANK UP TO -WIDOW ARACHNE: SUBTYPE- NOW POSSIBLEWILL YOU RANK UP?_______________________________________________________________>Y>N
>>34348326Sure whatever just let us sleep.
>>34348326are there any downsides?
>>34348326>Yis there any advantage to not evolving?
>>34348326YWell, goodbye, XP Bonus.I wonder if our siblings still have their Childhood XP Bonus. We should train them!
>>34348354>>34348359It's harder to gain levels because you're stronger?But you cant go past level 100, and evolving resets your level.
>>34348396oh definite Y then.
>>34348396so when we hit 100 again we evolve again?and evolving can ONLY make us stronger?
>>34348326Why would you ask that? What happens if we don't evolve? Is it just that we die sooner?
i wonder if we'll run into bonus "objectives" or if they'll be displayed at all
>>34348326On the subject of evolving; ask Sara or Mom to tell us more about it. Apparently Mom told the others about it, but we were wiped from training.What's this about never growing old if we keep levelling up?
>>34348516>>34348532The first evolution is somewhat of a gimme, but after that they tend to specialize and you may want one but not another.
>>34348569It's like evolving from a fly to a dog to a tortoise.You don't "stay young", you just evolve into a species with a longer life expectancy.
That's a yes, then?>>34348516Yes.>>34348532Nothing- You could keep doing things in the hope of fulfilling different things to trigger different evolutions, I suppose.>>34348569It's not really immortality as such- Just that stronger species have longer lives- a combination of actual lifespan and the ability to fend off things that would kill them. Arachne are already fairly long lived. In the books goblins live to about 20- while hobgoblins and ogres live far longer.>>34348557I wasn't planning on revealing things to that extent. Just keep in mind- Focusing on things will push your evolution in that direction, and will direct your bonus abilities.
>>34348326Wonder what our Subtype is
>>34348679well whatever it is, we can rest assured it's probably a recolor of normal arachne.Just as god intended.
So did our magic experimenting do anything special to our evolution?
>>34348654Spoiler from thread 2 implies that the only possible option is widow arachne when we are a base arachne. Was this just a "I'll ask them if they want to levelup because participation = investment"? Or is there some mechanical reason why we would delay? I suppose this is starting to sound anal, but it's just an odd thing to ask.
>>34348837It's a thing from the parent media.Like are you a GIIIIRL or a BOOOOOY in pokemon.
>>34348654>That's a yes, then?I think so, I'll have to count again
>>34348837It's a thing from the LNs and also relevant for future evololutions, it's always going to ask you, but later on we might not want to actually evolve into the thing suggested so we can decline and go for a different thing
>>34348948>LNLOL DIDN'T READBut ok, that explains it.
ARACHNE LYRA HAS RANKED UP TO: RUBY WIDOW ARACHNEARACHNE LYRA HAS RECIEVED: BLESSING OF THE DEMI-GOD OF PROTECTION___________________________________________You wake up with a head full of fuzz. Your headache has vanished, but you can't think straight. And you feel weird. Like you're all stretched out. You bring up a hand, rubbing to clear the sleep from you eyes. And a tiny part of you brain starts ringing, alarmed.You clench your hand and release it, trying to place just what's wrong. Your thoughts, memories, order themselves, and you tick off a checklist.You went out to the waterfall, with Sara and Jin.They played with magic, then you tried you hand at it.You can move magic, but not draw mana into you.You practiced on the way home.Jin said something, but it didn't really make sense.Mom sent you to bed.Your hand is red.You flinch backwards. The chitin coating your wrists has worked its way up you arm, encasing it up to your elbow. And its changed colour, switching from a shimmering black to dark red, lightening ever so slightly as it approaches joints. You twist over yourself- Your carapace and legs are the same colour, and there's a weird pattern across your shell.And the blanket has definitely gotten smaller.No- You're bigger. Sara is next to you, and while you were certainly larger than her yesterday, it was not to this extent. This is evolution? This isn't- this isn't what you thought it meant. You thought you'd get- You didn't know. This doesn't make any sense!Your heart races, gradually coming to terms with that fact that you're not the same as yesterday. Shuffling draws your attention as your Mom pulls herself up onto her elbows. She stares at you for a second before her eyes widen and her mouth drops."Lyra?!">I can explain- I mean, I ->What's going on?!>Hyperventilate>Other(?)

>>34348993>What's going on?!>Hyperventilate
>>34348993>>What's going on?!>>Hyperventilate
>>34348993>ARACHNE LYRA HAS RECIEVED: BLESSING OF THE DEMI-GOD OF PROTECTIONSuper neat
>>34348993We're RED NOW.BEST RECOLOR.>Other(?)Try to act nonchalant.
>>34348993Our face when
>>34348993>Other(?)"I'm red now. This is.... Do you know what's going on."Stay calm. It wasn't that long ago we went from Human to Arachnie. Just changing to a different coloured Arachnie is small potatoes.
>>34348993>>What's going on?!
>>34349203That would make to much sense, and /tg/ always seems to push the PANIC button when given the option.
>>34349232I want to push the "whistle and act like you didn't do anything" button myself.
>>34348993>Hyperventilateadorable option is best obtion - Red (commmaaaan spider zerker!)
>>34349271Lazy web-sleeping spider is best spider
>>34349293We've clearly moved away from that strategy, what with the tackling and spear shanking.
Right then. Spider Panic.Writing.
I wonder what being a Widow Arachne entails.
>>34349271Next levelup: wooly redspiderPros: fuzzy and warmCons: Hugs release fine hairs that irritate mucous membranes
>>34349366Hey, we only do that when we're on a mission or if we're getting attacked.I much prefer simple restful waiting-style hunting.
>>34349382Hmmmm...Jin could use our back as a nest.
>>34349382I've no problem with this
>>34349382That con probably only flares up if we're surprised.
>>34349488>wanting to be a whore spider
>>34349382P.S.Pros(cont.): Can defend ourselves with fine hairs.Cons(cont.): Really embarrassing bald spots
>>34349522It's not necessarily a whore spider, just one that can walk among humans easily. Plus we probably get bonuses to silk production.We are still in control of our actions.
>>34349560I'm fine with not walking among humans.it's enough to trundle up to one of their villages and enthusiastically demand news and offer silks.
>>34349586I dunno, humans can be very useful and we might get into trouble if we go in as a giant spider.
>>34349609Such is the cost of being a giant spider with a person on top.
>>34349617But we have the option of using illusion magic to hide that and easily sell silks.
Fire magic when?
>>34349560>>34349612Jorōgumo literally mean whore spider
>>34349625I'd prefer to just work with folk who don't stab us immediately upon finding out spiderness.
>>34349632>caring about how japs write it
>>34349488>6 legsGo away, ants.
Your breath comes in rapid fire gasps that make your chest burn. You're trying to talk, but it's just not working. Mom is pulling herself free of the blankets, stepping towards you, but..."I- I can't, I don't - I'm big, and , and, I'm big but I'm red and I'm not-"You can't finish a breath before taking another. You're wheezing, your eyes can't focus, legs twitch at random behind you. Mom has her hands on your shoulders, patting your hair soothingly. Your hair. Your hair is longer why would your hair be longer."Lyra. Lyra, Listen to me, yes. Calm down. Deep breaths.""No, no, I'm red, everything is- Sara is small and small and I-"You can't see straight. You feel, dizzy, weak. Your chest is thumping and your lungs are burning, and mom is shaking you gently, calling your name, but you're not there anymore. There's a moment where you're looking at Mom, then you're looking skyward, the dawn's light making patterns against the trunk through the foliage.And then you slide forward, and everything goes dark.>That'll be it for the evening. I'll shoot for tuesday for the next thread- 2 PM EST. >Questions and comments answered while I'm still in the thread!>And yes, I will tell you what achievements you filled, and what the blessing means. I Just won't give you a list to go after.
>>34349737Haha, you fainted.
>>34349737RIPthe end just kidding, thanks for running
I don't mind being red at all.red shell is obviously the best blessing, and we are now visually striking.
>>34349737Now that Lyra is red, is she three times faster than before?
>>34349737Where were you when Lyra was kill?
>>34349737Thanks for running dude.
>>34349737Special Requirements:Guardian: Put your life and body on the line. Filled Day 3, Fighting gnomes while keeping Sara safe.Protector: Fight for the safety of all. Filled Day 9/11/12, Fighting Lizards with our sisters, and facing down Kobolds to rescue Rie.Soldier: Wield weapons with skill. Filled by Mother's training.Blessing of the Demi-God of Protection: An all over increase in defense. It powers up the harder Lyra fights to protect others. This extends to physical, magical and elemental resistance.>>34349752>>34349807Thanks for playing!>>34349835Now I just have to update my OP.
>>34349893Defense bonuses... Sweet we really are the Spideynaut
>>34349938>>34349893Oh, everyone likes resistances.We may have to move out soon, if we're getting too big for home.
>>34349983>we have to say goodbye to Sara
>>34350016We'll go out and make a super awesome base to live in and adventure from, no worries.Then we can visit and have visitors!Also I really want to try making platforms between numerous trees. Ideally, we can just sort of make ourselves a nice sphere to live in between a few trees.
>>34350016We are sara's favorite sister- and now her favorite experiment. I'm ready and wiling to believe she'll follow us wherever
>>34350016>say goodbye to SaraWhy in Spiderhell would we do that? Sara's coming with us.
>>34350016Disregard naysayers. Acquire party members.
>>34350071>>34350402But what if Sara wants to stay and finish reading through our dad's magic library?
>>34350485That's fine. We can always visit.
>>34350485Unacceptable. We will bring her with us until she also evolves. Then we will be the Red/Blue Spider Sisters! One has a fiery disposition and a blade to match the sharpness of her tongue! The other is gracious and intelligent, spinning spells as she spins stories! They fight crime.
>>34350631We've also got a shoulder harpy and a possible moth girl to collect.
We shall be the biggest sister.
>>34351277Our steps will shake the mountains
>>34351286well not THAT big.
>>34351335we will give all the harpy's rides. AT ONCE.Jin can ride on our shoulder
>>34351376i apologize for my shitty grammar
