As a 29 yrs old chemical engineer, the suddenness of your death by airplane crash seemed like a terrible injustice.Well, children are still kept as slaves in Nestlé chocolate (cocoa) plantations all over Ivory Coast in Africa, so, you know, it depends on who you ask.But, the next thing you knew was a kind pair of hands welcoming you to the light of your new life. And what a life it is!Not only did you get to keep the memories of your last life, but you were reborn to a word of swords and sorcery, the likes of you always dreamt of.Who wants to work 40-70 hours a week when you can be a mighty wizard throwing lightning bolts at an evil dragon, or a whitwe knight bitchslapping the evil overlord off his throne?Your parents were retired adventurers, living in a small countryside village with a cutesy elf maid, and when you showed up the ability to use magic while laying on your crib, they thought their child was a progidy.Well, your dad did. Your mom was really worried at first but changed her ming over time.When war erupted in the southern border, dad had to join in on the nation's defense, and mom moved the family to the east, to the magocratic city state of Albion, which was1 - Not at war with a massive ancient empire2 - Known for being impregnable thanks to its location and well trained military of warrior mages3 - The place where she studied magic, and where she was offered a position as teacher and lecturer.Currently, we are almost 9 years old. We joined a party (we are keeping that a secret from mom), started earning money like no 9 years old should have a right to thanks to our knowledge on basic chemistry, and bought off a slavegirl to be our lovely new sister.Currently, we are inside the city of Albion's easten dungeon's 12th floor boss room, where we just defeated a hydra-plant-dragon hybrid thing and got a large treasure chest.
>>34974670Time for loot! Do we need to roll?
>>34974670Offer a prayer to the Adventurers who died before us, since a chest means someone died and their stuff is here.Then open that chest.
>>34974711yes, please roll 1d1000. You want to roll low. We need 4 total rollsI somehow was caught by time while working on the handbook, which is why im not posting the pdf in the second post the way I usually do. Will do so in a bit when I finish the section Im working onWhich Okaba and Aura would you prefer to have in the party picture?
Rolled 113 (1d1000)>>34974735Let's see here...
Rolled 927 (1d1000)>>34974735Right most pics for both.
>>34974735About that, do you take an average or is it for each piece of loot as it was a boss and bosses have more loot? I'm hoping for the latter, as any good player would.
Rolled 795 (1d1000)>>34974735
Rolled 27 (1d1000)>>34974735Also, second aura and third Okaba
>>34974781Damn, very close to a crit on a d1000, I wonder what that nets us. Hope it's something someone in our family can use. Slave girl's a dancer right?Also, OP, I'd like to know if our tacit casting ability (i.e. able to cast without words) can be passed on by our own personal instruction. If so, that's another thing we don't want people knowing about. They'd cut us up!
>>34974870>can be passed on by our own personal instruction.It's a known ability that just requires a lot of training and practice. It's surprising for us to have it because normally only middle-aged adults and older have the mature mind needed to channel energies without chanting. Mom told us not to do it because without chanting, the normal feedback safeguards found in a spell are turned off in exchange for speed of casting.It actually fits with our 'child prodigy' reputation, and wouldn't cause people to vivisect us.
>>34974735aura with the tower shieldobaka with the purple slippers.Also, when mom explained that was wary of spending bonus points because there was no one to experiment on...did we explain that we had already spent bonus points on ourself to no ill effect? we really should. Maybe elizabeth will volunteer more easily. I really want to get those done.
>>34974985Also, you spent them on your Father. Though not all of them. Which, since he was going off to war may not have been the smartest move you've made.
I decided to use multiple charts this time, so a 113 is "thirteen item in gold and jewelry table", for example>>34974751113 ...Queen's Hair Ornament, worth 13g >>34974754927... Star Dust Blade. (2 slots) Indestructible blade forged from a fallen meteorite. It glows softly during night time, illuminating a 60" radius with silver light.Adamantite Longsword, 35 base damage per hit.worth 200g>>34974778795... Arc Wand. No slotsAn ornate, elegantly crafted wand that grants powerful magical energy.INT + 3, M critical chance + 5%45g>>3497478127Monster JuiceA fetid liquid that monsters find irresistible. It can be used to to make a young (natural, non-dungeon) monster into a pet.Worth 63g>>34974870It is rare, but not unheard of.Most people need to chant their spells.Sages like to research into ways to make spell chants shorter, polishing off needless words looking for the perfect [Enerrgy type + mana required]/safety = Power formulaA few gifted individuals can cast chantlessly, so its not something that will blow the minds of a worldly wizard, but it is fairly rare. Like, just 3 people at the magic university can do it. You, the principal and a teacher.And yes you can try to teach it to someone, but it looks like the more exposure they've had to magic, the harder it is to learn chantless magic. It requires a different approach than the scholarly method."Oooh, this is really nyace, nya!" ~the cat-tribe beast girl says as she tries on the hair ornament"Well, unless its magical, off to the auction it goes.""That's nyat nyace, nya! Eldric, help mya here, nya!"* "Let her keep it, it looks cute on her"* Auction house* Other
>>34975038>"Let her keep it, it looks cute on her"Also, could we save the juice for later? We may tame some kind of beast into our mount, without having to multiclass into beastmaster.
>>34975038>"Let her keep it, it looks cute on her"We can always auction it later if funds become tight.
>>34975038>"That sword is worth almost twice everything else put together...damned good sword, too. Adamantium, two enchantment slots, sixty-foot radius of silvery light...I say, put up the sword and that wand for auction. The ornament isn't worth much anyways."
>>34975038>* "Let her keep it, it looks cute on her"We have enough gifts besides she has basically claimed it now
>>34975038>* "Let her keep it, it looks cute on her"We've asked for items plenty of times. I think we should keep the blade for later. either for lyann or until the dward acquires two cards to enchant it with.>hold off on selling the blade until it's enchanted.At which point we can decide if we want to buy it from the group.>>34975024>Also, you spent them on your Father.I think that's been retconned, since he has all his bonus points.
>>34975099Actually, we need a sword for Lyann to use as a Mamluk once she has enough levels in Dancer. We should keep the sword, sell the wand/have Miyaan use it.Keep the Monster Juice, though.
>>34975038I see. Fits really, martial arts instructors tend to favor "fresh" students over ones already practiced in an art somehow as the fresh ones have no habits, thus no bad habits to "unlearn" or bad muscle memory to train out of them.And let the cat girl keep it. It looks cute, and isn't worth too terribly much. We nice little boy, who may or may not have a soft spot for fluffy tails and ears.
>>34975038>* "Let her keep it, it looks cute on her"
>>34975129It's alot of profit. Let's...do >>34975117. We have alot of funds ourselves, from our other ventures. We can buy it on our own if we need to.When asked why, just say it's a 'welcome home' gift for when dad gets back.
The more we keep the more we have to compensate the group.If we let the catgirl keep the ornament, then she has to compensate us for a third of it's value. We'll also be getting a third of the proceeds from the sale of the wand and monster juice. Which should cover a significant portion of the swords worth.Especially since we already own a third of the sword and should be getting a 33% discount on the 200g.We have no current plans for a monster pet, and they would take time to raise. meanwhile, we already have a loyal sister, who we plan to change to a combat class who has no weapon.
>>34975231That seems fair. And for child terminology: "We all worked to get it, so the others should get something for the hard work...she could buy it from the group, for a third off of the price maybe?"Then, once we set the precedent, pull that same stunt on the sword.
"Let her keep it, she looks cute with it.""...""Thank you Eldric! See? see? he says it looks nyace, nya!" -Miiyau holds it over her head with both hands"Fine, fine. I want to put the rest up for auction, tho.""The sword is easily worth twice as much as everything else put together. Could we make it better by holding on until we enchant it?""I think that's smyart, nya!""Sure. Do you have any traits in mind, should I try and check the auction house for any specific cards? just your good common sense [Man Eating Plant] card for healing per blow?""You're the veteran, what do you think?""A [Man Eating Plant] and a [Ghost] card would raise its price nicely. Would be worth about six times as much with just 20g worth of investment, but those don't come up often. Or rather, they're bought right away.""There's no rush, we can wait. Oh, can I keep the monster juice? I've always wanted a pet""Bah, we are barely selling any of this, then? just the wand? and can't you use it, don't you want to?""Honestly I prefer my own wand.""Uhmm alright.But I'm taking that fancy hairpin and the juice off your shares on the sword""Of course, nya!"***Since you went straight to the boss room today, you could go into the next floor. It is the first time your group has no map to guide them, tho.* Go on and look around floor 13th* Go back home* Go to the university* Other

>>34975289>* Go on and look around floor 13th ffff-one person wanted the monster juice, and several people wanted the sword.we needz more money to get that fine blade for our future sister/bodyguard.
>>34975289>Go on and look around floor 13thAt the least, we should get our keystone attuned to it.But be careful; this level isn't mapped for a reason.
>>34975289Just a question, what kind of monsters does the juice work on? All of them, provided they don't live in a dungeon?
>>34975337Of course, as we go further down in the dungeon, better swords may come up.And remember that she's still got a few levels in Dancer to go before we switch her to Mamluk anyway.
>>34975231>No current plans for a monster petSpeak for yourself. We have knight, and I intend to take a dragonling and make it our mount. We can give it a cursed object to age it quickly, (mature in years, not centuries) then remove it at Mature, so we can fly around and shit.
>>34975289"Let's hit the 13th, but...leave markers, so we can find our way back.
>>34975360And don't forget about those cursed/blessed items we read about yesterday.
>>34975373Exactly. In addition to the fast aging, we can cause its intelligence, strength, and magical abilities to age at a 2-to-1 normal rate for how much it's aging, if we work it right.We should get Okaba's help on that one, though...
>>34975399Yeah, but first we have to find a young dragon or something equally powerful.
>>34975420I'm sure dragonlings are within the next several floors of the dungeon. If not, we can ask around the adventurer's guild.
>>34975360>I intend to take a dragonling and make it our mountJust where do you intend to find a dragonling until we're out on our quest and don't have time to spend years raising it?Even if there's one in the slave markets, they already have their own methods of controling them. Assuming they sell monsters at all. Or that dragons are thing in the setting when we've heard nothing about them. That is by no means guarenteed. At least the sword would have had a certain future use.
>>34975438>It can be used to to make a young (natural, non-dungeon) monster into a pet.Can't use dungeon monsters.
>>34975438Yes but as OP said:>A fetid liquid that monsters find irresistible. It can be used to to make a young (natural, non-dungeon) monster into a pet.So we will have to hunt it down, outside town. Also, we have to make sure we are not kidnapping him from the nest, otherwise mama dragon could be a problem.
>>34975475>>34975481Bah shit...oh well.Let's hang on to it regardless
>>34975350baby monsters. If you manage to sneak up and kill a pair of adult dragons defending their nest, go for it. I honestly imagine it'll end up being used on a baby gryphon or a hellhoun puppy or something like that....you guys are going to save it for a lamia, tho, aren't you?***Your group goes down into the 13th floor to lock your Keystone to it, at the very least."Ah, I sort of wish we had a ranger or someone else who could sneak around and take a look right about now.""Nyamyads are hard to find in cities, tho.""I know. Alright, that should be enough to get the keystone to work us back here."* "Let's keep going"* Go to the university and talk with Okaba and/or the other chess club members, agree on a date for our first official meeting* Go to the slave market and pet shops* Go home* Other
Hey, have we gone up any levels recently?
>>34975501Turn ranger on and go take a look. Also, I would prefer a dragon, but a monstergirl is fine too.
>>34975501>Other"Actually, I can give it a try."Switch off Knight, turn on Ranger, activate Stealth, and do some recon.
>>34975506Yes, you've gone up two levels in Noble and Healer and are close to level 9 on the other classes. except for Ranger which was off
>>34975501>"Actually, my family's Maid is a nomad...but I don't think she'd be thrilled to come down here. Let's just see what down here and head up to prepare and rest.">Go talk to Okaba about the dragonling experiment.

Then use that and the lack of ill effect when we did it to our self to convince mom and make her a super wizard.
>>34975541Can anyone wear cursed items, or only slaves?Can they be removed if you place it on yourself?I'm thinking of two linked items that are cursed but prevent aging placed on eldric by lyann and on lyann by eric.It doesn't have to be a death curse? it can be something like 'cant lie to eachother' or 'must be within a certain distance'Also getting some cheap equipment that is nontheless very effective using curse-enchantments. Maybe manacles(unattached to chain) or jewelry with things like endure elements and regeneration.Because if someone's being linked to another person via deathcurse then there should be regeneration involved.
You convince your friends that you can go take a look ahead using magic, and turn on your ranger to stealth ahead."You know we can still see you, right?""It's only meant to work on foes""Alright?"You sneak ahead carefully, and turn left a few times until you see some "lvl 13 Metalknight" on a room.Three of them, to be exact.They look like massive suits of armor, tho the hoods of the helmets are up and show that noone is inside.Having taken a look at this floor's enemy, you head back to your friends by turning right on every corner."Uhmm.. I've seen those in other dungeons. They're really strong against earth, but weak to fire. That's good for you, right?""It should be good, yes. Let's go back for today, tho. I already used a lot of magic today.""Yes, that sounds fine."Your drwarf friend opens the gate and takes you all back to the Adventurer's Guildhouse.After a few minutes, you bid your friends farewell until the day after tomorrow, and head over to the university.Looking for Okaba, you head on over to his room in the university's dormitories.You are sort of surprised to find Aura cleaning his room, but it also seems sort of natural...The coquettish succubi is wearing a normal school uniform as she humms happily to herself. The door is open."Ah, is the young master Eldric. Master Okaba is at the enchanting lab right now. Do you want me to guide you there?"* Take the chance to talk with Aura on the way there* Go by youself* Other
>>34975776>* Take the chance to talk with Aura on the way thereAsk her about their homeland, the general racial distribution, and what society is like.
>>34975641>Can anyone wear cursed items, or only slaves?Can they be removed if you place it on yourself?Yes, anyone can equip themNo, you can't remove them yourself, it takes a ceremony at a temple. No, scion wouldnt help>I'm thinking of two linked items that are cursed but prevent aging placed on eldric by lyann and on lyann by eric.Shouldnt you at least wait until they are of age?>It doesn't have to be a death curse?Right, but that's an excellent power source, making the item that much cheaper to enchant and add other features to>Other item slots,Im not sure about those. I think it should be the typical armor, shielf, weapons, jewelry. Tho slave wrist cuffs count as bracelets I guess
>>34975776>Take the chance to talk with Aura on the way thereWe are going to ask him about enchanting our chess sets and about cursed/blessed collars for pets
>>34975845>Shouldnt you at least wait until they are of age?well, I was assuming there would be several years of research to make sure we got the effects we wanted.>>34975776>* Take the chance to talk with Aura on the way there
>>34975855>>34975824 She nods, and puts on shoes before going out with you."Miss Aura, what's your country like?""Ah... you could just call me Aura, young master. We have different status, after all" ~she says with a smile as she thinks about your question~ "Uhmm... well, succubi are a sort of monster. Or we are seen that way, anyway. I've read that we are not the type to band together as clans or tribes, so we don't really have lands of our own, tho we prefer the warmer climates down south. Or do you want to hear about Master Okaba's land?""Ah, yes please""Oooh, Hêven is a very prosperous country. It lies in a region full of tall mountains that stand like islands over seas of jungle. The natives are either winged nobles or wingless commoners. Since the terrain it's so hard to navigate, only the nobles can travel freely. It's not that commoners are forbidden travel, tho! it's just too dangerous, you know?""How can it be a prosperous country if you can't travel on it?""Ah, you can travel, it is just dangerous.""How do goods get from a place to another, then?""Ah, I see what you mean. Well, most cities are self sufficient and relatively close to one another in the inner region of the country. The jungle is vast, but mostly uninhabited. The cities are close enough that well armed caravans can make the trip without much hassle. Would you like to ask about something else?"She waves at the other students as she walks with you. The male students all seem happy to see her as she walks out of the dormitories with you.***Anything specific you¿d want to ask?
What of the chaces of using our chemistry knowledge to expand our cleaning products to include sodium bicarbonate. (Baking Soda). The otherbidea would be to produce a cloth whitening agent like a bleach. Truely white clothes are very rare in that era.Granted I would rather play with nitric acid (aqua fortis) and sulfuric acid (oil of vitriol) to make things that go boom in the night but a 9 year old is a bit young for that.
>>34976039Well, ask her why she seems to be so happy to be Okaba's slave.Was I the only one who noticed that Lyann called us master last thread? Should we encourage or discourage that?
>>34976039Ask about succubi, or maybe how she was rewarded to Okaba
>>34976039>Anything specific you¿d want to ask?how long has been with okaba?her title says 17 but we know her collar makes her ageless...So i'd like to know if that's physically 17 or chronologically 17
>>34976039What nations neighbor Heven?Do the nobles keep to themselves or do they encourage mixing with the populace? Is it a culture that prizes martial prowess above all, since Aura was gifted to Okaba for his victory in battle.
>>34976053Just a warning. The law of conservation of energy doesn't work quite the same way in this world. Just letting you guys knowAnyway, are you sure you want to do that? the bleach was the source of a LOT of pain for servants and slaves when it came out. Clothes were washed in big wooden tanks full of the stuff, workers went blind and/or fell into the tanks often... it was pretty hellish, IIRC>>34976078I think you were. She was pretty much asleep at the time, or she would avoid doing so anywhere near your mom, plus you seem to love her like a sister so she feels guilty for not feeling quite the same way.Typing...
>>34976168I just threw them out as ideas. I think baking soda would be the safest and likely be something that would not cause any moral questions.
>>34976168>>34976312Yeah, I don't want to make people's lives worse
>>34976078I blame Aura. Well, less blame and more thank, but you get the idea.
>>34975501You say save it for a lamia, but where would we even find one. I wouldn't think they'd be that common in the wilds.
>>34976168"Well, I love Master." ~she answers matter of fact. "He's been nothing but kind and considerate to me. I know he is keeping his suitors at arm's lenght because of me, but honestly I wish he didin't""What, why?""Well, it may hurt him politically, you know? If I can't support him as a partner, I want to at least be his sword and shield. He really should worry about himself first, you know?.">>34976095"Well, there's too many mountains and too much jungle on the way for Alquia to try invading, but Lapsiona in the south does fight with Hêven over the rights to mines in their shared border often enough... I honestly couldn't tell you who owned them in the beginning, to be honest with you.">>34976103"Since I was your height. Of course, I was much cuter. I was a super cute child, you know? so cute, my Master instantly took a liking to me, right from day one!" ~she smiles, remembering how she used to bite and punch at everyone for the first year or so>>34976140"Well... the winged try to keep to themselves. There's always a chance that the child of a winged and a wingless will be wingless, you know? and even if it isn't, there's a chance that its children will be wingless in turn, you know? Master Okaba compared it to hair color, for some reason."You make it to the laboratory's entrance. Aura stands outside, ankles together, body straight as a fiddle with her hands on her lap.You knock on the door, and a young man from the lion-tribe of beastmen opens up."I will return to Master's room, now. Have a young day, young master. Excuse me."1/2
>>34976377Industrial chemicals with safety regs cause issues with greedy nobility. Partner up with a few blacksmiths to make labor saving devices like a peddle washing machine. Things like that improve lives and you don't have to worry about a guilty concience.Keep ideas to non toxic, low disruption then?
>>34976427"I assume you arre looking for Okaba?" -the lion-eared, blond young man asks you, and invites you in.The lab has several shelves with books and scrolls. There are numerous, carefully ordered drawing materials on the southern wall shelf, and a wide empty space with what you recognize as a enchanting circle, in the middle of which stands a chair.You easily spot Okaba. He's talking with a fellow student, a dwarf dressed in a school uniform with a bright red scarf around his neck and golden glasses on the tip of his nose."...an excessive and needless luxury" ~says the dward"It's not about making a luxury, it's about knowing we can. We could just as well enchant a ball to fall inside a bucket if you want." ^~says the prince"What for?""To know that we can.""It's pointless.""You can't only make practical things the same way it's been done for hundreds of years and still hope to progress.""fine."They notice you approaching, and Okaba excuses himself from his lab companion to attend you."Good evening, Eldric. How can I help you?"***Ideas?
>>34976548>***>Ideas?Greetings, okaba. I read your book and had hoped to speak to you about enchantments.
>>34976548"Hokay, so, one thing I've always wanted to do is ride a dragon. And then I see some Monster Juice, so...I get the idea of getting a young dragon, but they take decades, even centuries maybe to mature properly so then I was reading about your notes on cursed objects and I thought 'what if ItakeadragonandmakeitagefasterandthenhaveitbecomeevensmarterandmoremagicalandstrongerthanitnormallywouldatthatrateandthenIcouldridearoundonasuperdragon."Just have a full blown child splerg, then repeat it slower for him.
>>34976516Yeah, non toxic would be the best, in my opinion.>>34976548Either ask him to help with enchanting chess pieces when he is not busy, or ask him about pet collars. If we interrupted him we may ask for his permission to stay and watch his work, after telling we have read his notes in the library.
>>34976516Did you ever play Arcanum? it was about a fantasy world where a young human that was adopted by the dwarves and grew up with them reaches a human city for the first time with a revolutionary invention: A steam enginehttp://youtu.be/fmp700vOdrII really really recommend it.
>>34976548"Hello Okaba. I read your book, and am interested in talking with you further on enchantments. Specifically, I would like to talk about self-motivation and command-word activation."
>>34976601Ahahahahahaaa! He'll tell us why it can't work, but I still want this.
>>34976601Why are you acting like a kid when we've been acting like an adult for the year we've been here at the college? In fact, why would we act so out of character?
>>34976614Game looks neat, I'll buy it at the next steam sales.
>>34976687To show people that there's still a child who can get excited like a child underneath all that maturity?
>>34976715It would be forced, seeing as we'd be a 29-year old playing at being a 9-year old.And it's not going to do us any favors and in fact, would work against us as president of the chess club and in getting access to the advanced alchemical and enchanting materials and facilities.
>>34976769You have no sense of adventure.
>>34976548approach him maturely and inquire about his experiments in enchantment
>>34976811chucklefuckery and lolsorandumb behavor is not a sense of adventure. In fact, since you're working against showing us as being mature enough to be trusted with advanced access to the labs, and the things we could do in them, I'd say you're the one with no sense of adventure. You sacrifice accomplishment for cheap amusement.
>>34976872It's not chucklefuckery, it's taking what we've been playing as (a meek, fairly mature, intelligent young boy) and showing a bit of depth to it.As for working against the labs, I think the dungeon diving is doing more damage than anything else. We're sneaking out to use magic for violence at age 8, lying and doing whatever else to make it happen.
"Ah... can you give us a minute, Eldric? we just need to pour the mana into the enchantment circle and then we'll be done for today.""Sure."Okaba and the dwarf pool their mana into the circle.Like with the candle, you can see the circle's ink glow with magic and get "sucked in" by the chair, climbing up its legs at high speed as if it was being sucked through a hole on top of the chair."And now, progress!" ~Okaba leans back as if to sit, and the chair runs over to get in position"I still think it's stupid""It is, but now we can try and enchant a shield to have it get in the way of harm. Would you like that, my friend?""Uh... sure. I just think there's too many factors to worry about.""Are you in a hurry?""No""Then there's no problem, right?"The dwarf sighs and gives up, going over to the scroll racks.Okaba turns towardas you."Well, you do not think you are the first person to ever want his very own dragon, do you Eldric?""I suppose no, but I got this bottle of juice...""Dragons are very proud creatures, and they are used to being in charge of everything they see. In the past, attempts to tame them have always ended badly."You look quite dejected, so he supports a hand on your shoulder and smiles as he talks to you."We could still train you a drake or a gryphon. When you are a bit older, of course.""It's not the same...""I know, and it is good to aim as high as you can.

>>34976614Oh yeah, a while ago. Still have the CD's. So much nicer just to rebuy on gog games though. No hassle with copy protect or fishing for a disc or if it gets scratched.I wonder if we can instead use magic for custom weapons to replicate some things, only for us.
>>34976926>a meek, fairly mature, intelligent young boyWe've never been meek, and how can the dungeon diving be harming our chances for advanced access when no one has found out about it, and it's pushed our leveling?
>>34976603Two words, baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate if ya want to get technical. That shit is hella useful and it has next to zero hazards attached to it. It'll improve people's lives immediately with no guilt and a hell of a profit for us. We need to get to making that shit ASAP.
>>34976945>Mention the chess clubWe need to have the first meeting, and we need to come up with a year-end project to work towards.
>>34977000We are eight years old. Grabbing at the kind of power we are without acting a little normal will make people want to hold it back. We might not be able to do it at our age.
>>34976945Accept book and mention chess club and how we could make pieces move by verbal command
>>34976945Holy shit, Neo-Ranga art I don't possess!
>>34976945>* Ask more about enchantment and cursed itemsyes,yes very much.
>>34977018If we act normal, then they'll never give it to us because that's power that wouldn't be given to an 8-year old anyway.We have to demonstrate why we're exceptional, why we're better than normal, and why we deserve that power.
>>34977039It's power that won't be given to an 8-year old boy. We might be able to take it, but we'll lose any friends and be playing an 8 year old murderhobo.
>>34977018>We might not be able to do it at our age.This is what self study is for.Also, acting normal means people tend to hold us to normal standards. Which would be a step back.Let's keep up the child prodigy act. As long as we keep obeying authority figures, they'll trust us not to get out of hand.
>>34976945>* Ask more about enchantment and cursed items ask about the kind of things you can do with this. What kind of curses and enchantments has he linked?
>>34977050Explain why we would lose any friends.Elli has gotten over her fear of Eldric, Lyann doesn't show any reservations about Eldric's maturity or drive for power and in fact wants to help him achieve it.Mom is worried that we're not taking proper safeguards, not that we're reaching for such power, which is a valid concern and in fact shows that we need to start acting even more mature.Finally, all of the other students we've made friends with have become our friends BECAUSE we're mature and don't act like a kid.Nothing you say is backed up by what's happened so far.
>>34977050Fuck power, we're basically Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla rolled into one. Money man, we are gonna make sooooooo much money.Don't ya know the golden rule? He who has the gold makes the rules. Be patient, we'll be running this place soon enough, just not till we're of age.
>>34977126We still need access to better facilities and resources, and don't forget that this IS a standard RPG setting so some Evil Empires won't be swayed by economic sanctions.
>>34977070You mean obeying them by going on possibly illegal dungeon raids?>>34977117Elli's fear can come back, Lyann might be loya, Mom seems like that kind of tragic hero that must put down her own son if it helps everyone. Bottom line is I don't want to play a murderhobo. >>34977126This I can accept, but even then I want there to be a little fun had. Maybe grow into a Tony Stark pose. Also, what we do when we come of age doesn't bother me. It's playing the "Weird Kid Who Never Has Fun" that gets to me.
>>34977174They're Evil Empires.We'll just bribe the bureaucrats in the Empire and make any war effort slow as all shit.
>>34977174So? Their army doesn't work for free. Make em' a better offer. Come to the light side, we have gold.>>34977183Of course. I'd have all kinds of fun if I was a kid again. Sucks that people don't take ya seriously and all, but you can get away with so many shenanigains and nobody will think any less of you. People should enjoy their opportunities.>>34977195That too. Money, the greatest superpower.
>>34977183>You mean obeying them by going on possibly illegal dungeon raids?I was referring to magical experimentation. Also, she never said not to, so it isn't disobedience.
>>34977285>Their army doesn't work for free.Except, they do, depending on the Empire. Money is powerful but not all-powerful in a setting where killing animals doesn't leave corpses behind and they disappear into clouds of smoke and loot.

This means that by learning to enchant like Okaba does, you may later have troubles learning to enchant the way your countrymen do. Albeit the opposite is also true.You feel you could probably enchant the jar to refill itself with apple juice now, but it would probably cost a fair chunk of mana (80MP) to do so.Your mom asked you not to practice enchanting in the house until she sets you up a platform for it outside.* go with it* Wait for the platform* Other

But you will have enchanting next year. Are you in a hurry? should I hire you a tutor?""I suppose no. I was just curious... oh, mom, have you thought about your points yet? we raised ours, and Elli's. It's perfectly safe."Your mom looks at you for a bit."I want to scold you for doing something to yourself that could have been dangerous... yes, I think I'm going to. Son, I told you I was going to research about it, right? you could have waited for me to be done with it first. If something happened to you, I think I'd die.""Yes mom. I'm sorry."Your mom sighs, smiles, and kisses your forehead"Go have a bath, and we'll discuss about it over dinner, alright?""Alright"It had been a while since Elli joined you in the bath. You may need a bigger tub, as fun as having to squeeze in with her and Lyann isA bit later, over dinner, your mom asks you to assign half to her intelligence, and half to her wisdom. Because she feels she'll need both to raise you, Lyann and Athena properly.That night, she makes sure you and Lyann are properly cuddled up under the blankets, smooches your forehead, and covers your magical glowing candle with a metal glass.1/2
>>34979209In the morning, you find that Lyann is already up, practicing her jump-and-spin dance step, her large shirt (she got it from mom) floating up and then descending softly as she spins in a graceful manner.It may be a good idea to get her proper, newer sleepwear soon. And maybe check the market or the auction house for dancer's silks."Morning""Kyaa!" ~you catch her by surprise and she lands wrong.A healing spell on her ankle later, the both of you dress up (she helps you) and go downstairs for breakfast.School is alright. In magic safety they talk about going by steps and letting experience with a spell accumulate before trying something new.During lunch, you spot Honoria in the mess hall, so you sit with her and talk about classes for a bit. As usual, the dwarven princess has her hair neatly braided in front of her, so at a quick glance, it looks as if she had a beard as well.She tells you that Durian, Dulin and herself are going to go and check the nomad tribe that just arrived to the outskirts of the city for news and exotic goods from the far east. She invites you to tag along together with LyannWhat do you want to do in the evening?* Practice magic* Visit the markets* Go check the nomads* Other

>>34979562>See if they have a letter for us from grandpa or dad.You sent the letter just 2 days ago. Even in the modern world it would take a few weeks for it to get thereThat reminds me of this time I sent a xmas card to some friends on the US as early as September and it still got there on April. Man fuck the mail***You explain to Honoria that you want to bring a friend so you'll need to go home first, thus you will hopefully meet her there.She nods, and you enjoy lunch together. Aura greets both of you as she passes by with two plates. She'd join you for lunch, but Okaba is reading in his room so she is taking his lunch to him."What about going to see the nomads with us?""Master is not the type, but I will try and convince him."That evening after school, you talk to Elli and she agrees as long as Lyann stays home with Athena. She says a nomad campsite it's not a festival. Unless it is, but she has neard nothing of the sort.The nomads are camping outside the walls, so you need to exit the city.There are hundreds of tents, and dozens of wagons, but it looks like only the nearest, brightest tents are for visitors.1/2
>>34979834The nomads are humans, albeit you see a couple of half elves going around, as well. Their clothes seem light, but there is an abundance of thick if small fur pants here and there.Elli explains to you that this tribe circuits between here and the icelands, so their clothes are thick and warm. These are basically their winter lands, where the heat lets them dress as light as they want.You don't feel particularly warm right now, but everything is about perspective, after all.They have several shows going on, with music and quick drums resounding from some of the biggest tents. There are also plenty of goods to buy, from simple but sturdy weapons and leather armors to a mammoth calf they brought with them from the northern icelands.You remember seeing an elephant in your previous life, once.

>>34980002>OtherGet Dancer outfits for Lyann and Elli then go find our friends.If Elli asks, say that we want to see her dance.
Any comments on the lyann pics so far? any you feel like saying "that one!" about?***You explain to Elli that you'd want a dancer's outfit for Lyann. She replies that a dancer's job is to lure the eye and distract the opponent, that is how their magic works, so you should keep that in mind.Also, the tribes of every region have different dancing traditions. The dancers from the northern tribes tend to wear fake monster heads and thick (fake) furs to keep warm, even as they jump and spin to shows flash of skin and deliberatedly sensual movements to make up for their lack of exposure, while the desert tribes tend to use metallic decorations such as necklaces, cuffs, chains and bells, with just a silk scarf or gown over the dancer's bodies."What about Elli's tribe?""Paint and long hair. We were a coastal tribe. Furs, metals, silk... those do not last very long. If you want. I could make some paint and teach Lyann to dance the way we did. Oh, you should have options. Let's go into one of the tents, surely they have a show!"Elli pays a few coins to go in with you, and you both watch the show.Two male dancers are showing off in the middle of the tent. They are wearing fake sabertooth heads (they look quite real to you) and the furs cover them from their from their masks to about half way down their stomachs.They make pouncing, jumping and stomping movements.Despite their exposure, it doesn't looks like anyone minds.Even Elli seems to be just looking at the dance with a completely critical eye.1/2
>>34980399>any you feel like saying "that one!" about?The lyann pyjamas pic is good.
>>34980399>>34980458I agree on the PJ's
For Lyann how about this it fits well with her classes being mainly Imuchak, Wizard and Dancer
Thanks for running, imma head off to beds now.
>>34980542Given her current age, I could see her looking like Kyoko at the moment. Not sure how she'll fill out as she ages though.
>>34980399There's other ways to draw the eye than exposure.Movement, clashing, suddenly changing colors, even quick flashes. An outfit that twirls, spins, and flashes with possibly clashing colors can work just fine.
>>34980542I support Kyoko an pyjamas too
>>34980399When a shapely woman wearing a female deer's mask joins in, things take a more sensual turn as she quick-steps, dodges and fless the chasing tigers.Her "outfit" is pretty much the same as those of the males, and with the outlook of your previous world, you can't help but to think that Elli shouldn't have brought a child as young as you into the tent, but when the show ends everyone simply claps and leaves in a good mood after throwing copper and silver coins into the plate the dancers pass aroundIndeed, it is a different world"Did you enjoy it?" ~Asks your petite elf maid"Ah.. yes. Does Elli dance like that, too?""No, my tribe did a more relaxed show. A lot of swaying, and not nearly as much jumping."You get an image from an Eastern island dancr back on good old Earth. It is probably something like that"Still, there are, of course, hundreds of dancing traditions." ~adds Okaba from a few feet awayOkaba is wearing a rich orange silk suit with sandals. Aura is wearing her full armor, shield and sword on her back.She is also holding a meat stick in each hand, and is happily chewing at a bite."Th- slhavhe dhnzrs frhm Hhvhn are mush bedder" -she says with her mouth full of meat, cheese and fruit."Aura, swallow first, talk later.""Shrry, Mhster"You greet the prince and his bodyguard. Albeit Aura looks more like a child in a carnival than a proper guard right now.* Get Lyann a set of northern dancing furs* Give Elli the money and ask her to make some paint* Ask Aura about the slave dancers of Hêven* Other>>34980542that looks cutesy and good for right now
>>34980647different sensibilities for different tribes. The norhtern tribes dont have the materials to dye their clothes, and heavy clothing means that exposure is automatically eye catching.If you will notice, there's a flamingo dancer oufit amongst the ones I did for the pic in >>34977551
>>34980680* Give Elli the money and ask her to make some paintThis also gives Elli more Craftsmanship XP.
>>34980680>* Give Elli the money and ask her to make some paint>* Ask Aura about the slave dancers of Hêven
>>34980680* Give Elli the money and ask her to make some paint* Ask Aura about the slave dancers of HêvenBoth since this would allow Elli to get xp in craftmanship and more information about dancers.
>>34980742 bah i meant >>34977680fucking eyes
>>34980680>>* Give Elli the money and ask her to make some paint>>* Ask Aura about the slave dancers of Hêven
>>34980776I will go with this, for the exact stated reasons and none other.
You walk around with Okaba and Aura. The bodyguard chokes a little with her snacks, and Okaba has to gently pat her back.She doesn't looks very much like a bodyguard at all?What bodyguard? she's clearly a girl on a date.That armor, shielf and sword are for nothing. If Okaba paid anything for his bodyguard, he should get his money back.According to Aura, the dancers in Hêven wear long enchanted silks that insinuate while never actually revealing. It doesn't matters if they are cartwheeling, doing a jump, spinning on midair or laying spread on the floor, the silk always falls and floats exactly the right away to tease and lure.Okaba chastises her gently for spoiling the mystery of it.You suppose it must be much like stage fighting, a secret that everyone knows but chooses to ignore.* Ask Okaba to enchant a dancer's silk for Lyann and Elli* Give the money to Elli and let her make the paint* OtherWalking around with Okaba and Aura, you look around at the goods the nomads are carrying.There's an interesting spear made out of a dragon's fang. Looking at it through your ring tells you that it adds +5% chance to critical hits, and causes bleeding wounds on every critical.This means a 10% critical chance per attack, instead of the normal 5%.It also has 3 empty slots, and does a base 25 damage. It is worth 75gDo you want to buy it?
>>34981032Let's go with tattoos + floating silk for the full Neo Ranga vibe
>>34981032* Ask Okaba to enchant a dancer's silk for Lyann and Elli* Give the money to Elli and let her make the paintBuy the spear. We can enchant it and put it up on the auction for triple the price.
>>34981032How much money do we have to our name? I'm a bit reluctant to buy it even if we have mad money to blow, spear wielders tend to have very bad luck for some reason. Do we dare make someone a Lancer?>>34981093Body paint really but same diff, as they say, why not both?
>>34981093Yeah I like that.
>>34981172Just because we buy it doesn't mean we have to use it. We could sell it at a markup and make a profit.
>>34981093Might be cool
>>34981032Let's go with tattoos + floating silk for the full Neo Ranga vibethis also for the spear YES it's perfect for a starting weapon for Lyann
>>34981084>>34981101No++>>34981152>>34981172>>34981203Buy and sell it+++ You buy the spear and give 500s to Elli for the pain. You have 29g 500s 50c left>Tattoos and silkIm not against it at all but feel anything permanent should wait a couple of years>Make someone a lancerWell, their battle continuity is useful. Being able to retreat from boss fights, which typically always give that pesky "you cannot escape!" message, Dont wanna turn into a treasure chest for someone to findOkaba says he'll be happy to, once he's done thinking about the chess set. You should get the silk yourself so you can pick colors and what not. You ask him about the way the north enchants things, and he mentions the cars.That's right, the cards count as enchanting, right? and it doesn't cost anything more than 4MP-He considers it a very unreliable method, but it's very interested in the flexibility that gives you being able to cherry pick the abilities you want in any one weapon.You look at him while walking back to the city...* Tell him about the weapon slots* Dont tell him* Other
>>34981391* Dont tell himlet's keep that locked down tight.
>>34981391* Dont tell himmaybe later but for now we really shouldn't tell people about this kind of things immediately.Also about the spear we shouldn't sell but instead keep it until we can give it to lyann once she starts trianing her Imuchakk it fits with her character picture too.
>>34981391>Dont tell himWe dont want to become an experiment
>>34981391>* Dont tell him
>>34981391* Dont tell himBut since we know what to look for, we could invent a spell that tells you how many slots a weapon has, as our PhD thesis. That will make us a shoo in for professorship, and still give our party enough time to take in massive profits in the meantime.
>>34981391I was more making reference to the E-Rank Luck thing lancers tend to have going for them but yeah, being able to run away from a boss would be a very handy ability.And don't tell him, he's the type to want to experiment on us.
Im not against the tattoos, but I really think we should wait until shes fully grown1) Im not going to tattoo a child2) Its better if shes fully developed and curvy first, no? anything she gets now would just look weird later>>34981471>Imuchakkthe what now?>>34981610>E-Rank LuckI know, it was funnyWell... we decide not to tell the prince enchanting about the weapon slots.With his succubi slave, and his walking chair.Let him find about it on his own.Yes, let him jump that wall, if he's so great.You walk back home through the market. Okaba excuses himself and takes Aura back to the university. You don't see any interesting cards for sale.Zenite card 2g (20% damage reduction. Doesnt stacks with copies of itself)Centaur card 2g (+30 damage when charging)You walk around with Elli. It is quite hard to find the materials she know, but you do manage in the end.Before going home, do you want to buy either/both card?
>>34981917sorry I think I made a mistake I mean the starter class for gladiator and champion.Also buy the centaur card it works well with the spear. since a spear is excellent charging weapon
>>34981970>>34982064No++>>34982033Yes+You decide to pass on the cards for now. You are walking next to Elli when you notice a dark skinned elf girl in a simple short dress, calling out for people to try her melons.Yes, it is a fruit store. She smiles when she sees you and gives you a sample. It is very fresh and tasty.You get a couple of the elfgirl's melons to take them home.Elli has no trouble storing them in her Item BoxWhen you get home, you find Lyann and Athena are napping together.It's cute. It's definitively a cute scene. This world needs cameras to preserve moments like thisElli goes and slices the melons in the kitchen while you lean in to wake up the girl.When she comes back to the bedroom, you are sleeping with Lyann and Athena, so she leans in to wake you up.When your mom gets home later, she finds all of you sleeping together. She leans in to at least wake up Elli so she can go to her bed.The following morning, you wake up to a very crowded bed full of beauties.***You guys want to skip forth a couple of months or keep with the day by day?
>>34982247>You get a couple of the elfgirl's melonshohoho! Keep with the day by day? Yes.
>>34982247I wish to see Lyann's reaction to wearing the silks and body paint. So I guess keep up the day by day for now.
>>34982247Yes but can we start bringin Lyann along in the dungeons to level up her dancer
>>34982247Couple of months seems fine there is no pressing concerns in our life right now is there?
>>34982247Skip for a couple of months. We can still vote on the important things.
>>34982247Keep it day by day so we can handle the first day of the new school year and when we can go down in the dungeons.
>>34982385This please, otherwise skip
>>34982366While I still want the time skip I do want to see this
>>34982674You know thinking about wouldn't dance work well with Gladiator and Champion? Since gladiator involve showmanship the moves learned can easily be incorporated in it since Champion is the next job of Gladiator it synergize well too.
>>34982862Why are we even going for Gladiator instead of Fremen and Fedaykin?Those were the original Job goals we were going to have Lyann push for, aside from Scion.
>>34982444>>34982388>>34982674>>34982592skip ++++>>34982366see Lyann's reaction +>>34982337day by day +You ask Elli to prepare the pain but wait until you have the silks ready.Since Okaba told you he wanted to do your chess set first, you have to wait a month before he gets around to it.The way he enchants the set, the pieces "stand" and walk ahead when you call the moves. Calling an illegal move however causes it to spin in place, however. He says he can fix that after he's done with the silk, which should be just a few days.***Im trying to remember something Okaba had to tell you that IIRC was important, hold on it will come back to me. I get the impression it was really important...
>>34982915What's the difference anyway? I just thought it would synergize well with the dancer and wizard thats allBy the way QM if take spellchanter can we still get the class of Archmage or will the wizard class be absorbed to unlocked the class.
>>34983017Mamluk, Fremen, and Fedaykin are meant to be able to sneak in, wreck faces, and sneak out. It's fundamentally different from the Gladiator fighting style
>>34983017You still canWas it about the silk itself... no, you didint told him so he doesnt knows about the slotsSomething about slots...?Dancer... slave... slots...enchanting... enchanting cuffs for Lyann? no...ah! right!***You work with Okaba into the chess set over the next few weeks.The chess club grows a little as dwarves see the princess play it with her friends in the garden. Soon nine more dwarves join up.It somehow becomes a very fashionable thing for young dwarves to play, and they begin asking you for more expensive sets made of precious and semi precious materials.While you are talking with Okaba about your home, he tells you that it is always greener in the other side of the fence."Your nobles dont sound that bad. Bacl home. my people have the custom of having slave warriors party up with their children and send them into dungeons to raise their children's levels.""Wait, that works!?""Sadly."Well, its a party, so if there is no minimal distance, it should work."This is for your slavegirls, right?""One is a house servant, not a slave. And I dont think of them like that.""What do you mean?""I think of her as my friend, if not my sister.""But you own her, right?""Technically.""Do you want a light curse on the silks? I could give it some nice defensive properties if we added just a tiny curse""...she'd have to wear it all the time unless she took it off at a temple, right?""Yes.""then no, thanks. But no thanks.""What about wrist or ankle cuffs?""Uh...?"Enchanted/cursed slave jewelry* Yes* No* Other
>>34983259Yes she need as much help as she can get and we can just go to the temple if we need to remove it.
>>34983259No. Cursed items should be a personal choice, at least until we get levels in Bishop and can do it ourselves.
>>34983259And yeah, it was about partying up for exp, and how it doesnt has a distance limit. We could party with Athena or Lyann and give them exp while they're at home.
>>34983259* Other yes but do not give it her
>>34983259No.. just No
>>34983371shit oh man we should have done that from the start. All though thats a bit unfair to our other party members.
>>34983259Enchanted not cursed, and maybe some nice necklaces or stuff, we dont see her as a slave so I dont think that shackle like things would be appropriete
>>34983259Yes, but make sure she chooses to put it on.
>>34983259Best see if Lyann is cool with wearing the cursed jewelry before we put them on her. Power has a price but she may be willing to pay up.
>>34983371That's something we should talk to mom about. We're going into the College Dungeon anyway, we should give Athena a head start.
>petJust gonna list some pets that might be nice, since I can't hang around this quest often:>Mammothbecause they don't get enough loving and I saw it mentioned above.>Large/dire dog/wolfPretty sure an 8 year old is still small enough to ride one.>SlimeI don't really know how slimes work here, though. Just being able to slip through cracks is plenty useful.>Hawk/any scouting or messenger birdIt doesn't seem like something anyone would pick in a quest but they might be pretty reliable for sending letters.>Small truffle pigTruffles=money>Sabertooth tigerFor the same reasons one would want a dinosaur. For that matter,>Dinosaureven the little ones would be good.>Bee Queena tamed bee colony. Think of the possibilities!
>>34983542>Having a hawk would be kick ass
>>34983634Yeah.>>34983259>NoWhat part of not seeing her as a slave don't you get?
>>34983362>>34983372>>34983457>>34983474Yes (but let her know) +++>>34983369>>34983392>>34983421No+++****"Well, let me know when you have a set you want me to enchant for you.""I will, thanks."Finally, the pieces simply ignore any wrong commands.The enchantment can also be turned on or off.It costs a total of 40MP to enchant each piece. If you look at it from the viewpoint of 1MP = !silver coin, that means that the cost jumps up by 1 g 280s for a fully enchanted set.You make another 55g by selling soaps and (normal) chess sets to and through the chess club.You get 220g through Grummir selling enchanted weapons with no failure chance.Honoria wants you to make her a set of crystal and a,ber for his father. Of course, it is a gift for a king, so she wants a board of the same materials. enchanted, if possible."How much do you think that would cost?""I have no idea, let me try and find the materials in town, first""Alright."Going around town, you meet with the dark skinned fruit elf (it's how you think of her right now) selling oranges and apples.She thinks you are quite cute, and gives you some apple slices. You buy a few sweet apples from her.When you get home, you find Elli has a visitor.Your new neighbor (from right across the street) is a young man in his early thirties. He looks quite strong, and it looks like he's flirting with Elli over the small fence surrounding the garden.He can't do that. He can't flirt with your Elli!Can he?You greet Elli and ask her to go in with you.1/2
>>34983897No we'll break his goddamn legs... magically. Wizard.
>>34983897>He can't do that. He can't flirt with your Elli!No can't. Dead.
>>34983897Maybe? I mean, we're *supposed* to be a kid, so we probably shouldn't know much about flirting.Instead, operation Mood Killer! We shall go up and innocently ask her what is happening and in general just kill the mood, handily preventing a date but for innocent child reasons. We're too young to be thinking of her like she's our girlfriend or harem member.
>>34984183Forgot to add, yes I know we're actually an adult, but we must maintain the cover that we're a prodigy, not an adult in the body of a child.
>>34983897That evevening, you talk with Lyann during a training break."Lyann, Okaba told me something nice. Well, mean... something interesting. Yes, it was something interesting."You tell her about how the nobles have slave warriors party with noble children, and then send them into dungeons to strenghten the children."Of course, I was thinking about going the other way." ~you make a gesture by pointing in one direction with one hand, and then in the opposite direction with another hand~ "I thought I could party with you next time I go into the dungeon""How does that work?""Well, you see, when you kill monsters, you become stronger. If we are in a party, you will receive a bit of that strength, too.""Mast- uhmm.. you think I'm weak?""...I think everyone can grow stronger, and I don't want you to get hurt in the process""I'm being a burden, aren't I?" ~she looks quite upset about it"No! In fact I'm sure you could go into the school dungeon with me when we move a grade. You will be very useful! I just thought that anyone would like to become stronger with little effort.""Well... I will do whatever you think it's best.""Alright."***Alright, so now * FF a bit more until the next year starts so we can go into the school dungeon with her? Still will get exp and gold. Then surprise her with the paint and the silk* Continue with the day by day. Find out abour new neighbor.* Find out about the fruit elf* Other

>>34984307That is true.

>>34984653Claim her as ours!
>>34984424>also, what's up with the lamia thing, anyway? ctrl+f didn't get me anything in the previous threads.This thread runs on humour and clichés. You probably dont have the required nerd knowledge required to know the Monster Musume manga, where the image is from. Don't worry so much about it. Hell, the dwarves races are FORTRESS and Hill. The elves come in Vanilla, Caramel and Chocolate. I try to insert as many injokes as possible into everything. We have a Fremen and Feydakin class, too!Noone got the "jump that wall if you are so great" reference either, and I think im the only one that gets an anon's Fate/Stay Night jokes***As it turns out, our new neighbor is suspiciously nice to us.He gives us a pat on the head when he sees us, and calls us champ.He gets along well with mom and Elli.He sometimes watches from the window of his house, across the street, when we are practicing magic in the garden.He even fixed out garden's street door, driving new wooden posts into the ground to replace a pair that had rotten away, and even painted the fence afterwards, the suspicious bastard!Elli and mom refer to him as "Danren", calling him by name.You don't like it, you don't like it at all.You like it even less when they talk well of him.As for the dark skinned fruit elf, she tells you her name is Kalkah. She is the property of the fruit shop.The owner thought, correctly, that having a pretty girl advertise her goods on the street would raise sales. The owner is an elderly lady.1/2
>>34984720>He sometimes watches from the window of his house, across the street, when we are practicing magic in the garden.He's not after Elli. He's a pedophile after US.
>>34984720>>34984770He's after mom and Ellie and they're probably foolish enough to allow him to move in on them.
>>34984720Kill that SOB!
>>34984720Shit this ain't good, sounds like he's actually a shotacon. Oh well, if he tries to molest us I say lightning to the face! We can do lightning right? If not, I vote we get lightning. Very powerful, very useful for killing things. Besides, who hasn't wanted to channel Palpatine as your enemy screams in agony as you laugh your ass off?
>>34984720She isin't hobbled, and you don't see a collar on her neck.Seems she's well treated.You are talking with her when Danren shows up, wearing clear blue and white street clothes. They're not cheap, but neither are they luxurious, either."Hey champ! how are you doing?" ~he pats you on the head~ "Does your mom knows you are this far out from home?"He greets Kalkah and flirts with her, too!"So, what are you up to, champ?""Ah, I'm busy. I'm trying to find some place where they sell ambar.""Oh, I am very familiar with the marketplace. Do you want me to help you?" ~Kalkah offers sweetly~ "I'd have to sell my fruits along the way, however.""Uhmm? that's all? how much for the whole basket?" ~Danren buys Kalkah's fruits, and bids you adieu* Go with Kalkah around the market* Follow Danren* Other

>>34985127this made me chuckle***You walk through the marketplace with the caramel elf girl.Like she said, she is quite familiar with the marketplace, and the stand salesmen seem to like her.She takes us to a less transited sector of the market. There are less people on the streets, and the shops look less elegant.The store handles magical reagents.You see chalk made from all sorts of ecotiv materials. The owner knows Kalkah and says that if we are her friend, he will give us a discount whenever we return.As you head back, you pass by a smithy with Kalkah, and notice a number of shackles, chains, horseshoes, cuffs, and tools hanging from the front of the shop.Remembering you told Okaba that you would buy the set of cuffs for him to enchant, you take a look inside.Kalkah seems quite nervous to be there."Good evenyan, nya!" ~a familiar voice greets youYou and Miiyau stare at eachother over the counter for a few minutes."Grummyar, come out front, we got visitors!""What is it now... oh hey, how are you doing, eldric.
