A comfortable sort of peace overtakes you as you walk, the quiet of the village broken only by the clatter of your limbs as you move between the trees. The foliage above is far denser than elsewhere in the woods, neatly concealing the village from above. Soft light drips over the shapes of the moth's homes, cast by hanging orbs clustered loosely in the branches.The homes themselves are wide orbs of silk, each with a few small holes for entrances. You might be able to get your human body through one, but you'd have to tear the structure open to fit inside.Heads poke out of the cocoon like homes as you travel through the moth-made twilight. The whole village smells ... calm, for lack of a better description. Soft. Concepts that aren't really smells at all.You head forward, one foot in front of the other, hoping your hosts make themselves known. You're not sure you'd be able to identify them.A moth-girl crouches on the branches just ahead, one hand bracing against the trunk as she watches you. She calls out as you pull up beneath her, craning your neck to meet her eyes. Her voice is soft, a whispery sound you strain to hear."Greetings, weaver. What brings you to the village?"You're not sure if the quiet tone is simply something all moths affect, or if they sleep in the middle of the day, but you make an effort to keep your own down."Greetings, yes. I am looking for Sil or Kri- I am seeking trade."The moth lets a small smile cross her face as she answers."Then that is something I can help with. You will need wait, though- My parents are out at the moment."She nods to herself, satisfied, and you cock your head as you watch her.No, still can't tell which one she is."Ah- Are you Rie or... Nin, was it?"The moth crouches further as she observes you, pulling her knees to her chest as she looks down."I do not believe we have met, no? How do you know us?""I was the one who pulled you or your sister from the ruins, yes."
>>35197921She flutters down from the canopy, circling you, examining you intently, Sheszka stepping back to allow her space, waiting patiently."Hnnn- I do not recall you being red.""My name is Lyra, yes? And the red came later. You will look different when you change, will you not?"She completes her circuit, and takes to the air, hovering gently in the air before you- the girl is barely 4 feet tall, though her wingspan makes her seem larger."I am not sure I will be changing colour, in any case," She smiles. "I am Nin- Rie's older sister.""I thought you were twins?"Her expression grows ever so slightly haughty, tilting her head and looking down her nose at you."I am older by nearly twelve whole seconds. I am much more mature."You hold back the laughter, but your grin uncontrollably as she floats, hands on her hips, taking unending pride in her quarter-minute of superiority.You wait for the girl to continue, and she surprises you by folding her hands before her, closing in till she's face to face."Thank you for saving her though." Her smile is bright, genuine. "I love her very much. I do not know-">Let her finish, even if she's struggling.>Pat her on the head.>Encourage her.>Other (?)Twitter: twitter.com/REQMXask.fm/REQMCharacter 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/

>>35197943>>Pat her on the head.These are always good
>>35197943>>Pat her on the head.>>Encourage her.And no, it doesn't really matter
>>35197943>Let her finish, even if she's struggling.
>>35197943>Let her finish, even if she's struggling.Let her finish on her own.
>>35197943>Pat her on the head.>Other (?)"I understand little one. If I lost my brothers or sisters, it would break my heart. But you don't need to be scared, yes. The Moths are friends of the Spiders, I will always come and help you if you call me."
>>35197965Links are usually put in OP, but everybody is different and special so do you're own thing. Also just go into Re: Monster so this pretty cool. Have seen the earlier thread but didn't want be a fool.
>>35197943>Let her finish, even if she's struggling.She's very mature.. clearly she can finish on her own...THEN!>Pat her on the head.
>>35197965I don't think it matter very much but I think it's better to put that stuff at the bottom.Start the post with actual content, just drop the other stuff at the end.
>>35198068>>35198035>>35198018Ill keep it in mind.Anyway, we'll just do both, apparently?Writing.
>>35197965>Also, more evolutions to be revealed after thread.As in, beyond wolf, orb, and grave? Cuz if there's an option which is conceivably better than the red dead necrospider I'm all ears.
>>35198529Fluffy spider best spider
>>35198529>Not wanting red FluffySpider.Pleb.
>>35198529>>35198553Orb master race. Just think of all the things we could do with strings!
>>35198553Nope SkullButt Spider is where its at. Although we will probably get WolfSpider first
>>35198553Grave superior, all else inferior
>>35198553I respect your opinion and wish you luckGrave a best
This won't be relevant for a while, but I have an idea for our dungeon crawl.Outside of the dungeon, have Sara feed us some mana and focus on our tremor sense. Try and 'ask' the earth to show us things. Maybe we can get a mental map of the dungeon or something. Or maybe just boost our tremor sense a bit.
>>35198553>>35198584I also support the codex fluffy.
>>35198635That sounds like a smart, we can give it a try
>>35198592The codex astartes dice gods do not support this action. We've been shit at every web roll except for the turtlecroc last thread. Skullbutt a best because it might lead to filthy magics.
>>35198635sounds like a neat idea
>>35198651But we can't do magic on our own, only mess with the magic of others. We'd need to carry Sara like some sort of demented mana battery and that's still going to end up being used less efficiently than if we'd leave it to the magic expert.
>>35198673>REQM: "Like an assassin bug">Implying we won't be sucking the mana out of our prey.
>>35198770...Grave spider 100% a best
>>35198770But if we're already physically powerful enough to get up in their shit and grapple them, consistently enough to get mana out of it, how wouldn't we already be dominating them in close combat so hard that it wouldn't even matter?We cannot into magic-casting spider. It is something we will have to deal with, in lieu of being 2legit2quit spider in general.
>>35198827I don't even know why people think GraveSpider will be the magic casting one, when its the biggest evolution and the most armored and armed one with the spikes on its legs.
As you watch the young moth try and find the words she needs, your fingers twitch conspiratorially. What is it with animal people who've got things on their heads? It's just- You really want to pat her, reassure her.Maybe it's just you? Is this some sort of addiction? Are you a serial head-patter now?You push the thought to the back of your mind, knitting your fingers together to keep your hands out of her hair while she thanks you."-I am not sure what I would have done without her. It's not... I can't imagine it. I don't want to."You nod, as she finishes, her head down."I understand, yes? I do not wish to think of what I would do without my family. But she is safe, yes? And we are here. You can count on us."She smiles beatifically up at you, her hair mussed beneath your hand-When did you even- This is ridiculous. Her hair is really soft, though. And the way her antennae flick as you rub near them-You pull your hand back and cough, awkwardly."Ah, yes. Hm. What have you been up to, then?"Her smile doesn't fade as she flicks her wings once, deftly folding them as she lands before you."Mama has kept us close to home. The boys tried to sneak out at night again, and our father had to convince her not to tie them to the house."Sheszka giggles a bit, smiling as she looks around at the village."And what about you, hm? Already grown, a wolf at your side. What have you been doing?""Traveling, fighting, hunting. There was a problem at the ruins, the other night. And I visited the human town on the river, yes."You glance over at your companion, gesturing between them."This is Sheszka, by the way. Sheszka, this is Nin."
>>35198911Both girls nod solemnly to each other before Nin speaks up again."How did you meet then? And why is she following you?""Ah- I crossed the river, yes? Just to look around. And she tried to jump me, so I punched her. And knocked her out. And tied her to a tree."The moth starts to snicker as you scratch your neck. It's a bit of an odd story. Sheszka chimes in, breaking the silence with her own declaration."Alpha, now."Nin watches her carefully, taking in her clothes, her relaxed stance."You're her pack, then? Planning on being queen?">"I- what?">"No.">"Would you explain that?">Other (?)
>>35198865I don't think any of these evolutions are particularly inclinated towards magicI think grave will get harder natural armour, while wolf will get much higher speed. Orb gets webbing.Speed trumps armour, plus fluffiness. Makes it a no-brainer for me.
>>35198926>"I- what?">"Would you explain that?">Other"Though, from what my mother told me about the old civilization, and that Seranthis still lives, maybe it wouldn't be a bad thing for it to come back?"
>>35198929I still think Orb is the magic focused one, if any are. I can't think of anything special we did weith weaving that would let us meet conditions for a evolution that is better at weaving.>>35198926>"I- what?">"No."
>>35198926>>"Would you explain that?">"Would you explain that?"
>>35198926>"I- what?">"Would you explain that?"this should be interesting
>>35198926>"Would you explain that?"We've heard of the queen at least, >skin of stone, whose steps shook mountains>earth magic>excitement intensifies
>>35198926>>"Would you explain that?">>"I- what?"Explain further, mothgirl.
>>35198926>"I- what?">"Would you explain that?">Other (?)"I couldn't just leave her behind, that would have been cruel."
>>35198926"Maybe some day, yes. I have much to see and much to learn before then."
>>35198926>"I- what?">she doesn't have anyone else left, so...
>>35198926>"Would you explain that?"
>>35198911Monstergirls with headthings must be petted. This is part of the rules of nature.
>>35198973we trapped a giant bear made of shade in a web and then killed it when it was severly disadvantaged.we also used up our web trying to set traps for the non sapient wolf pack fight. which failed, but we still pushed ourselves on silk production there.and we used our silk during the fight with the croc
>>35199144try petting a human sometime, or getting someone to pet your head. both feel really good.
>>35199155>the fight with the crocThat was a spectacular success, that thing was HUGE!
>>35199155Exactly. We occasionally use webWe ALWAYS hit stuff and use our strength.So while we shouldn't get rid of our web or stop using it, we should focus on our strengths and stop trying to be the best at everything
Okay, confusion, a request for information.Writing!
>>35199155None of which is all that special, all things considered its just using our webs what they are there for. None of those webs were particularily innovative. It was just basic Spider fighting technique.
To me, Grave is just the most varied, as it seems more like the HEAVY ASSAULT BUT ALSO POISON one.Like, Poison mixing, Paralytics, shit to coat our claws and ALL DEM SPIKY BITS with to ensure NO-ONE fucks with any bit of us.Also the Spikes can double as a Perch for Jin / Handlebars for everyone else.
>>35198911>Is this some sort of addiction? Are you a serial head-patter now?Lyra is now in the same support group as Chiaka Matsuda and everyone who has encountered Yukari.
>>35199210>Exactly. We occasionally use web>We ALWAYS hit stuff and use our strength.Almost every battle that earns XP involves us using web>So while we shouldn't get rid of our web or stop using it, we should focus on our strengths and stop trying to be the best at everythingthat has nothing to do with the argument you are replying to. We are discussing whether Orb spider evolution is a +magic or a +web evolution.I was replying to a person who claimed we haven't used our web for anything that should go towards an evolution.Also, I would like to mention that those 3 upgrades are not upgrades we unlocked, but upgrades whose requirements we PARTIALLY satisfied.I am betting luring the giant shadow bear into the web thing partially satisfied the requirements for a web trapping specialist spider, the orb spider (which IRL is famous for its web traps). We might never actually fully unlock that upgrade without further use btw.
>>35199241It doesn't need to be innovative, it needs to be impressive.Was sarah amazingly innovative with her spells? were we amazingly innovative with our "stab people"? Innovation has nothing to do with it.The question is thus: "How did you earn your XP" and "which achievements have you unlocked", achievements being stuff that impresses the gods
>>35199331>To me, Grave is just the most varied, as it seems more like the HEAVY ASSAULT BUT ALSO POISON one.I agree about that, I believe we have started unlocking grave when we coated our weapon in our poison before battle.
>>35199340But...but that is just an infinite recursion of head-patting.EVERYONE IS GETTING HEAD PATS.>This how Lyra marks her mates
>>35199343The "trapping a huge thing in your net" might be a condition, but I think what we did with the skeletons, and after the "summoning lava" bit, its very unlikely to me we haven't met a condition for a more magic evolution. And since neither Wolf nor Grave seem magic to me, I would think Orb is the likely candidate for that.That being said, there is no reason it can't be a bit of both.
>>35199413who will head pat lyra?
>>35199331I started the spiderwar this thread, but I'd like to point out that we don't actually know what any of the evolutions do. Maybe orb is actually fuckhuge and durable. Maybe wolf is actually for burst damage and being fluffy but not for being the musclegirl spider. Maybe grave gives us necromancy but makes us fragile as shit.
>>35199386>Innovation has nothing to do with it.A innovative use IS impressive. Using the webs in ainnovative fashion would be impressive and therefore likely to be a condition, but just using the webs straightforward seems less likely to be a condition for me.
>>35199432No one, instead Lyra shall have A harem of women slowly waxing / combing out the fur on / bleaching Skullbutt on her shell
>>35199343>>35199386I think theres something important that people arent reading here.REQM said we were at half completion for 3 VARIANTS. Not wolf/grave/orb, but stuff like how we're a ruby widow instead of a regular one.
>>35199436We do know the Sizes in relation to eachother and normal Arachnes, but beyond that, yeah its speculation by now.
>>35199436Actual species - Wolf is a roaming spider. Fucks shit up. Female orb weavers wait around in big ass webs. Grave spiders are not a thing.But we're a "Widow" and windows are stationary spiders so what can be gleamed from the names is minimal.
>>35199461Being a Sub-varient of a main evolution just means that we evolve along the same path but keep the coloring / perks, like, a normal widow will evolve into something else, we would evolve into the same thing, except Red (unless it has a color change) and keep our Blessing from a God of Protection
>>35199501>and keep our Blessing from a God of ProtectionWe keep that anyway, just as a note.
>>35199436Better yet, we dont even know if we will qualify for any of them as of yet nor what we will need to do to get there. All in all I wish that he would release a full list of evolutions with spots censored out and whatnot to have us try to guess how to get to the fluffiest/meanest/TUNDAHBREAKAH/shinest spider possible.
>>35199501Yeah, but it means cool coloration and awesome powers.I'm putting money on earth spider, weaponsmith spider and and maybe expanding the ruby one to more protection.
>>35199501Blood wolf. Ruby orb. And the most heavy metal, CRIMSON SKULL!
>>35199428It is possible that orb is a hybrid of magic and web. For that matter, they could all be hybrid with some magic thrown in.Or maybe our potential magic evolution is a hidden/rare 4th evolution we haven't gotten informed of yet?Or who knows.
>>35199478It's probable that you can at least imply something by the base species: wolf would likely be a mobility type, orb would be a web specialist, and the QM already hinted that the "grave" is some kind of assassin type. All three fit Lyra to some degree.
>>35199457My understanding of taxidermy says that our waifus will be dusting our skullbutt and brushing its teeth.
>>35199461I thought that the ruby thing came from having a blessing...but you have a good point, we evolved into a ruby widow, but the chart with the wolf/grave/orb just says "widow", the ruby is the variant. So we could get a "earth blessed wolfspider" like how sarah got "star blessed widow"
>>35199531If we unlock earth blessed variant like sarah did with star blessed, and we keep our existing ruby-red=protection variant.That would make us an Earth-Ruby-Wolf Arachne.I like to imagine that red + earth = lava
I've gotta duck out to pick up my sister, but that shouldn't take long. Post is nearly done, my apologies.
>>35199558If that's the case, I think wolf would be bestBut I suspect grave might be armoured, instead.
>>35199837I will be going for grave whether it is armoured, assassin or magic thief upgrade. Those are the three playstyles I think we have been doing to most effect anyway, and the ones I most enjoy. But hey, it's your vote. but orb spider a filthy slut
>>35199826REQM confirmed for big spider sis.
>>35199883My current best guess is that grave is like the vampire for goblins so fast, stealthy and healing which should suit us well
>>35199971oh, grave because we killed a bunch of skellingtons!
>>35199941This entire quest was self insert all along
>>35199826no prob, we will wait
>>35199979possibly less to do with killing them, and more to do with the manipulation of their reanimation magics...
>>35200006so, will we gain necromancy powers?
>>35199983I am perfectly okay with this,
>>35199883I've kinda been voting to stay away from magic a little bit.Gotta focus on being the strongest spider
>>35200029And now I'm imagining Lyra as the Spectacular Spider-Girl."Lyra! Get me pictures of that Spider-Girl!"
>>35200043I wouldn't necessarily say that staying away is the best of options: we saw how we helped curbstomp the skeleton army with the ability to break magic.
>>35200043Honestly I don't see us going the magic route, the only time we've used it was as a spellbreaker during the necromancer fight, we've never used the earth spike magic we know
>>35200076Different anon- But I don't want to become a Mage. We're incredibly unique in our ability to break magic and everyone seems to be shouting BOO LETS JUST BE GANK MAGE NUMBER 99913991345.Way I see it Lyra is the perfect melee fighter. Normally the hard counter is magic, instead we break it and roll right up to them and stab/curb stomp them with eight legs.
>>35200117Oh, I agree that she should focus on her melee combat skills, and also her web trapping skills (they've served her well), but it would be remiss to neglect studying up on what exactly her spellbreaking powers are capable of. It's a fantastic ace-in-the-hole.
>>35200050>Lyra headin' to Jameson's office, wearing thick-rimmed glasses>Bumpin shit off everyone's desk with our giant spiderbutt>Get stuck twice trying to squeeze through the doorway>Jameson keeps reading his fucking newspaper>JJ: Lyra! Get in here. I've got work for you.>Lyra: Is this about pictures of the Red Queen?>JJ: IT'S ABOUT PICTURES OF THE RED QUEEN.>Lyra: a lot of people like her, you know...>JJ: She's a menace! I won't have her in my forest.
>>35200110I agree. I can see us using earth magic to do structural stuff in dungeons (open paths, detect secret doors, collapse ceiling) and do spellbreaking against enemy wizards.For combat we should stick to martial skill, superhuman power/agility/durability, and magical weapons
>>35200117>>35200110I'm not keen on the earth magic, but the spellbreaking and controlling is something I think we should keep training in, its extremly useful to have as otherwise melee-fighter.
>>35200164Yeah I'm Melee focus>Magicbreaking>Webtraps
>>35200117All of my yes! I love it when protagonists get niche powers like spellbreaking we could go generic earth mage but why would we when we can be a fighter that makes mages cry in frustration? My ideal lyra would be one that stays the current course. Being a melee powerhouse with utility web traps who don't afraid of no mage.
>>35200217They can't cry in frustration when their spells explode in their face.>H-how did you do that?! This isn't possible! WHAT ARE YOU?!>I am a giant spider.
>>35200166Later:>Lyra rescues Jameson from a burning castle>Wearing our trademark face-obscuring helmet>Jameson: Aha! Red Queen! Just as I planned!>Jameson starts casting a spell while still held in our grasp>We pluck a few threads out of it and it fizzles>Jameson: What? How did you even do that? This is part of some sort of diabolical arachne plot and I'm going to get to the bottom of it!>Lyra sets him down and dusts him off>Lyra: That's nice. I am a giant spider.
Reminder that giantest spider Lyra is best Lyra.Disgusting fluffy spider and pretend-huge grave spider by stacking shit on the back can get out.
>>35200348Even without the stuff on her back Grave Spider is the biggest.
>>35200348I really don't see the appeal in a house sized Lyra, much less a castle sized one..
>>35200401>I don't understand what is best in lifeThat said I am operating under the assumption that the lyrasizefags are all in it because thatsmyfetish.jpeg
>>35200401They picked up the Autism spread by Jin. The bird girl who can't even understand she is a singular being not a collective.
>>35200401I agree with you anon. I like moderately sized lyra.
>>35200394Yes, but stuff on the back also detracts from the HUEG itself, it'll just cause attention to be shifted on the "hood ornament" for lack of a better term.To be HUEG, one must be HUEG in and of itself. That is the duty of those destined to HUEG.But I'll toss my hat in with you guys if it means not having to deal with fluffy spider. Spiders shouldn't be fluffy, you have dogs and cats and other things for fluffy.
>>35200401Yeah, definitely more fun to be able to enter dungeons and what have you.
>>35200468a whole lot of spiders are fluffy.>>35200494mom is already too big to enter some dungeons...
>>35200427>>35200451Really, I'm just in it for the novelty of being a giant spider. So what better could it be to be the giantest spider? That'd be neat. And if Lyra ever has kids, a really funny story.>"I bet my mom can beat up your mom AND your dad!"
>>35200427Musclegirl Spider Knight Lyra is my fetish.And I am proud to admit it.
>>35200451She is already pretty huge, and she will naturally grow still quite a bit more.That being said, I see no reason for her to be House sized, I want "impressively large" Lyra, not "Oh-my-god-I-heard-about-giant-spiders-but-this-is-ridiculous" Lyra.
>>35200533>I am a giant spider.
Alright, I'm back. People neglected to inform me that I was a chauffeur, and that I am to drive them wherever they wanted.Post shortly.
>>35200529There's a difference between being the size of a barge in the vein of Gaston and LITERALLY being the size of a barge.... Musclegirl Spider Knight Lyra IS appealing. Dose abs...
I have just realized that In-character Lyra can be the CHEEKIEST CUNT without even trying to be said cunt>Someone answers us a straight question about stuff we do and how we do it>I am a giant spider.>Someone asks us which thing out of multiple things we prefer doing / have done / are in fact simply things.>Yes.
>>35200581REQM! Answer these allegations!>>35199941>>35199983>>35200050
>>35200584So can we at least agree that Lyra will be hueg in one way or another?
>>35200601Spiders can't post on the internet.That's crazy.
>>35200607We can't really avoid her becoming huge, since she still grows naturally anyway, and we won't get any "smaller" forms unless we stop being a Spider Knight, and who wants that ?
>>35200607I don't think that was ever in question. It's not like she's a wizzard or an elf.
>>35200533how is HUEG lyra even gonna have sex?how is she going to pet heads of cuties?how is she going to fit into dungeons?
>>35200616But it's the world wide web, surely spiders can use it
>>35200637if we accidentally get too big we could always focus hardcore on our magic and become a spell lord. Which would transform us into human size and almost entirely human in shape (only small bits of non human monstergirl stuff)And I am pretty sure in such a case we would keep our physical strength as if we were still HUEG
>>35200616I DO NOT BELIEVE YOU.
>>352006571. By getting creative.2. Very carefully3. By ripping the top off and toying with the inside like some demented doll house.Any questions?
Is there a masterbin for this Quest? Or do I have to go through every thread separately?
>>35200681they are using it, but they can't post on it.they use it to trap prey. once you get snagged on their interwebs you get trapped, then eaten.>>35200637without evolution we are only going to grow a little more. which is large but not HUEG
>>35200657>how is HUEG lyra even gonna have sex?Be a bit creative anon, if you think about it the answer will come to you. And Jin wants become huge too ...>how is she going to pet heads of cuties?Carefully.>how is she going to fit into dungeons?Earth Magic and brute force.
>>35200684>even THINKING about Losing Spiderbutt of SpiderbuttnessI will launch a Crusade against you.No, no losing most Spiderness, if we get too HUEG we hard-lean Speed.
>>35200707That guy is right though. Most spiders have fangs too small or weak to pierce your skin, even if they do have poison
>>35200717>which is large but not HUEGWell that depends on what you consider HUEG, mom is already too big to fit into some doors, and we will become at least that large.
>>35200738Of course, only a SPIDER would say such things...
>>35200738Spiders are venomous.
>>35200729Still have to go through every thread separately.
>>35200723>Mountain spider holding hands with a roc.FUND IT.
>>35200616>Spiders can't post on the internet.Spiders can't turn their webcam off either! Ha. Caught you.
>>35200792Sorry about that I misread you post and thought you were asking for the all the threads together.
Is there a possibility to turn into a fabulous vampire?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUhVCoTsBaM
>>35200731Speed won't fix it, which is why we better stop going for HUEG now instead of trying to fix it later.
>>35200770would still hit itnobody is THAT straightheck, without the fake hair she looks even girlier!
You pause a moment, blinking carefully as the two girls watch you. Your mouth opens as you begin to form words, confusion knotting your brows, and you raise one hand, half curled, a single finger standing for a moments respite."I- Wait. Wait. What? I don't- Explain. Please explain that."Nin's smile grows as your broken sentences flow into the air, puffing up her chest with importance again as she launches into a history lesson."The packs have always fought, right?"She glances as your wolfgirl, who nods her confirmation."Even when the city stood. There was one wolf leader, but the rest wouldn't follow him, so the other strong monsters would go and beat the alphas, and claim the packs for their own."She's pacing as she lectures you, kicking her heels up with every step, spinning on the spot, back and forth."And the Arachne queen was one of them, of course. She claimed her own pack, and they served her till the city fell. And then they crossed the river."Sheszka nods along grimly, filling in where Nin stops."That was our pack. Alpha had an old spider-"She gestures before her, hands framing a long shirt as she frowns at her lack of words."Like a.... tabard? A long, loose sort of shirt?""Mhm. With a spider. Alpha would talk about how strong they were."Nin is skipping around the two of you excitedly."The Queen's own pack! Haha!"You try waving her down, but she's having none of it."Nin, I am not going to-""Long live the Queen!""I am not- I am not the queen, yes?""Not yet!"You hold out both your hands, calling the moth to a halt."Nin, how long will it be till your parents are home?""Fear not, your majesty! They shall return with the turning of the hour!"You groan. Sheszka mostly looks confused.>"How about you show us the village, yes?">"Are any of your siblings around?">"SO what can moths do, anyway?">Other (?)
>>35200886We can't really avoid it as such. We don't really know what evolutions are "huge" beforehand, and even if we did, there is not much point taking a evolution just because its small.I'd heavily assume that all melee evolutions will be pretty large.
>>35200912>>"How about you show us the village, yes?">>"Are any of your siblings around?">>"SO what can moths do, anyway?"Yes.> Stuff about packs and queens.Time to gather the cutest girls, I guess.
>>35200912>"How about you show us the village, yes?"
>>35200912>>"Are any of your siblings around?"
>>35200941>This is the reason the Queen never had any childrenIt all makes sense now.
>>35200912>"SO what can moths do, anyway?">"How about you show us the village, yes?"
>>35200912>Do moths have any special talents besides being ridiculous? I mean really. Us. An arachne queen. Yeah. Silly. Yes.
>>35200912>"How about you show us the village, yes?">"SO what can moths do, anyway?">Other (?)I want to hear more about becoming empress spiderbutt
>>35200912>"SO what can moths do, anyway?"
>>35200912>"How about you show us the village, yes?">"Are any of your siblings around?">"SO what can moths do, anyway?"ALL THE THINGS!We can ask about her siblings and Moths in general as she shows us around.
>>35200920... You know, I'm willing to bet that most arachne sizes are based on age rather than evolutions, anyways (though evolutions play a small role). We should ask Mom how huge grandma was.
>>35200912>"How about you show us the village, yes?"considering how far local civilization has fallen, becoming a queen might be a good thing. Rebuild the city, restore civilization, yes?
>>35200912>>"How about you show us the village, yes?"
>>35200912>>"How about you show us the village, yes?"Lyra is the queeniest
>>35200964>This is the reason the Queen never had any childrenwho said she didn't?
>>35200912>Spider Queen LyraYes, this is a thing that we must do. I support this whole-heartedly.
>>35200984We did become noticeably larger when we evolved, but its hard to tell how evolution and physical maturing work together in this setting.Most arachne don't evolve much anyway, so its doubly hard to tell with them.
>>35200985I've wanted to set that as a long term goal ever since we learned about the old Monster Civ.We are but a shadow of what we once were. I'd like to bring some of it back.
>>35201018We're still somewhat smaller than our mother, so it could play a role. Recall that our grandmother was around 110 when she died of violence.
>>35200792Here. The first few posts are fucked sideways with formatting, but it gets better.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1rD-MZe51wYI63xxl-tG8dsxj-RWVtJu3S6Gzd6OTJSw/pub
>>35200912We're keeping this one as well. She knows Lyra is royalty. >"How about you show us the village, yes?"
>>35201035As I said, we still grow larger with normal aging, which is why we can't avoid growing some more one way or the other.
>>35201040She also appreciates head rubs. Now we need to find out if she's a ninja alchemist assassin or something.
>>35201035>>35201054Mom is 30.We aren't even a month old, and we are nearly as big as her.
>>35201054That's fine, I'm just wondering if the HUEG thing will take centuries, rather than months or evolution.
>>35201071Yes, that is exactly what we were saying all the time. We will still grow larger one way or the other...
>>35201038>Here. The first few posts are fucked sideways with formatting, but it gets better.I'm glad it did actually, I was thinking about dropping this quest way back in the beginning if it didn't get betterBut it did so it's okay now
>>35201071We don't really know when Arachne stop growing, if they mature so fast they enter puberty after 1-2 months, its possible they are fully grown in half a year.
>>35201100The early issues were all due to the program I use fucking with text wrapping. I sorted it out fast, because fuck that.
>re-monster todayFUCK I totally forgot
>>35201112Delicious spiderletfag tears when we enter puberty and wake up half again as big as mom
Every question possible, then?Okay.
>>35201071Mom might have been nearly her current size when she left the nest though, so we really have no idea if they keep getting bigger after that.i think the legendary spider we met is an exception, wasn't he an actual Spider instead of an Arachne? He also could have hit some extremely rare evolution because of how crazy old he is.i fully expect us to be ever so slightly larger than Mom, but not by any significant amount.
>>35200912>SO what can moths do, anyway?"Good question.
>>35201112we were told that it varies a bit but we have about a month to go and will grow up to mom sized with current evolution. Also, we are only slightly smaller than her with current evolution.
>>35201216>He also could have hit some extremely rare evolution because of how crazy old he is.or just had a fuckton of evolutions. one after another. each evolution changes you physically and also increases your max age
>>35201224I think we're ever so slightly shorter, just all gangly and shit. Still waiting for that spider puberty, time to fill out
>>35201224Its very much possible we would only grow as large as her with our current evolution, its hard to tell since its a variant. But if we continue getting melee evolutions, we will most likely end up even bigger than her pretty soon.
Have to sleep now, keep up the good work!
Allright, well, it looks like I didn't miss much then. I'm glad you guys chose the NOTTAQUEEN option.Because I don't want to be queen, that's chump work.
>people talking about how we're bigHey.You know how that elf known as our dad is freakishly tall?I think we might be what happens when you give a normal arachne elven tallness genes.Do we also have pointed ears?
>>35201285Sorry mate, we won't get the chance to refuse.
>>35201308>Do we also have pointed ears?IIRC yes
>>35201318They will have to drag us kicking and screaming to that throne, then.
>>35201308We have pointed ears, but we didn't seem to be unusually large for Arachne standards, I think mom would have commented on that if we grew faster than normal.
>>35201338>>35201333I wonder what the differences are between an arachneXarachne kid, an arachneXhuman kid, and an arachneXelf kid.
>>35201285what? i don't see any "notaqueen" choice.We are totally going to be queen. that is our long term goalmid term goal is to be the best adventurer in the world.
>>35201356That's a chump goal. For chumps.
>>35201285I want to be QueenEventually I mean, I still want time for adventure first
>>35201334The Origins of BEST IMMORTAL QUEEN AND HER BEST HAREM are mired in confusion and profane amounts of swearing.
>>35201378what is your goal then?
>>35201308I have to admit, I liked how the dad issue was handled. Like, Lyra still hasn't referred to his as dad, just erics or father.
>>35201386>giving up fun adventuring life for piles of queenly responsibilities
>>35201356>>35201386Before becoming Queen we still need to travel the world, can't be Queen without a lot of evolutions.
>>35201400Airship, extreme travel, and making our local township area into a bustling metropolis.At most, I want like, mayor's advisor tier responsibilities.I much prefer helping folk with grand adventure than queenly duties.
>>35201415which is why I explicitly said "long term goal" with "mid term goal is to be the best adventurer in the world"you don't become the best adventurer in the world without many many years of adventures, and many evolutions... and basically being the strongest most badass person ever.
>>35201390>No! Unhand me! I am a giant spider!
>>35201419So why be queen in the first place, then, if you want it specifically to have someone else do the job?
>>35201445So we have ~Authority~ backing us when we punch idiots.
>>35201455We already have authority.Giant spider authority.
>>35201442>"We know your majesty. You're the Spider Queen. Now please, can we start the council meeting?"
>>35201442>>35201390This is the only way I would accept queenliness.If everyone we've ever saved/helped literally lifted us and carried us to a queen zone and didn't let us not be queen.
>>35201493Alternatively, everyone tries to make Lyra queen only to not find her ecause she took her harem to go fishing a la Hero McDohl.
>>35201487>I refuse! A Giant Spider cannot be forced to do this!>-sigh- Your Majesty is being exceedingly difficult today, Servants, please fetch her pack.>The Council meeting proceeds with an exceptionally calm Lyra, who has a harpy perched behind her and is nuzzling her back while Sheszka polishes her shell.
>>35201534Haha, they can't make us rule if we're busy adventuring!
>>35201487we would be too STRONG to drag... unless they convince our harem to do it for them (since we wouldn't be able to seriously resist to avoid accidentally harming them).Our harem would too, already we have a bunch of them calling us the future queen
>>35201493>meet a qt "civilized races" adventurer in our travels>save their bacon multiple times>start having a thing together>"wait your dad's the high king wtf">Forest people demand we marry prince(ss) to secure political influence across the wider theater>royal family demand we marry to ensure dat political alliance>"I just wanted to be a giant spider adventurer guys"
>>35201558you can do both once sarah learns to cast teleport
>>35201561>>35201534I am uncomfortable with the liberal use of harem.
>>35201582"Overly-Attentive and Affectionate All-female pack" then.
>>35201582Would you rather use a conservative usage of it?
>>35201561>implying we'd hurt all the people we helped saveWe'd be powerless to stop them!>>35201581Damn you sarah. Damn your magic. Damn these thrones.
>>35201582you are right, I apologizeactually, for once I would want to play a monogamous hetrosexual female MC... ah who am I kidding. Bi harem is a go
>>35201608I also want that anon, not the harem I mean.
>>35201608>>35201631I would also like to run into fun male love interests at some point.or at least tease that one guard some.
>>35201640Would a trap be an acceptable compromise?
>>35201608>>35201631Could we please not have this conversation. It never leads to a good place. If the time comes, vote into that direction. But leave it be for now.
>>35201640pfft. that one? no interest at all whatsoever. the old one at least had some brains going for him.
>>35201608Hellborn quest has this. Not that MC isn't too damaged to seriously pursue romance.
>>35201666All the boys in Hellborn suck thoughI mean not all of them, but the ones that don't suck are unavailable
>>35201685I agree, but we should probably save this discussion for the proper thread.
>>35201551>"Your Majesty, today you have a meeting with the Ambassador from the Northern Kingdom to discuss trade agreements.">"I do not wish to discuss trade agreements, I am a Giant Spider.">"Highness, please, our people need to secure trade routes through their territory to-">"No, I am a Giant Spider." >"Guards, please remove all the cushions and the Royal Shell Brush from Her Majesties chambers.">"NO! You wouldn't, I am a Giant Spider!">"......">"Fine, I'll meet the Ambassador and secure the trade agreement, for I am a Giant Spider!"
>>35201772I find its not as funny if it is used more then once in the same conversation. Its really just something to make a point with.
>>35201772>The Ambassador was actually a qt3.14 yuki-onna that Lyra couldn't resist head-patting>The Northern Kingdom ended up being absorbed into the Empire because the Queens met and tactical head-patting followed.>The Northern Queen and Ambassador now live in Lyra's castle.Head-patting, the true military force of Lyra.
>>35201822>Head-patting, the true military force of Lyra.I.... I think we might have gone to far. What power have we unleashed!
>>35201822>Skullbutt spider includes additional grasping limbs to headpat many monstergirls simultaneously
>>35201959Stop trying to sell your disgusting skullbutt, you, you, necromancer
>>35201959Fluffbutt allows for maximum monstergirl-pleasing, everyone knows girls love fluffy things.
>>35202022No, that's wrong.MONSTERgirls love SHINY things!
>>35202182Shiny is best.It is known.
>>35202022Fluffy a Best.
>>35202182FluffySpider is best Spider.
>>35202206>>35202199>>35202204>>35202182>>35202022The only way to settle this is with some of us dying, anons.Prepare the Knife arena.Shinybutt is best spiderbutt
>>35202022Team flufflook at this picture! you want to pet the fluff, you know you do!
>>35202271I will get my spikey football gear and gasmask
>>35202273I... I want to hug it and I hate bugs...
Shiny and smooth spider-butt is the best form of spider-butt. There is so many fluffy monster out there, but no one can do shiny and smooth as good as a Arachne, gotta play to our unique strengths.
>>35202297Soo...Fluffy Knee-socks?This is the best thing ever!
>>35202297Shiny smooth is a best for arachne.Orb probably is too.
>>35202318i think you are on to something... parts shiny, parts fluffy? le gasp!
>>35202326>>35202318>>35202297And thus the Kingdom of Anon split in twain and reunited in the span of a few seconds of arguing about Spiderbutt.And there was much rejoicing.
You're beginning to get the feeling that Nin is the kind of person who doesn't stop once she gets going. You glance desperately around. Something, anything- Got it!Your hands crack sharply together as you clap, snapping everyone's attention straight to you.Thanks, Mom."SO! Nin, just what is it the moths can do? Mom told me about dust, just, nothing specific, yes?"She bows deeply, one arm across her waist and the other extended while Sheszka giggles."Milady, please allow this humble moth to inform you!"No, concealing your face with both hands isn't stop the blush.Nin continues unabated."-With our majestic and beautiful wings, we can float through the air- But it is, of course, our ability to produce the finest of powders, that draws attention from all comers.""Nnnnnnnngh.""Though I myself am but a young moth, I can make a dust to calm, a dust to sleep, and a dust to slow- The adults can make ones that stop, or weaken, ones that kill or heal."She frowns, her grandiose display interupted as she wrinkles her nose at a thought."There's a few they haven't told me about, though. Mama always says 'later, later' whenever I ask. But later never comes."You've got a sneaking suspicion you know what the powder is for."Later is when you're an adult, I think.""That's dumb.""Mmm. Are your siblings around? Or maybe you could show us the village, yes?"Her smile returns, just as wicked as before."Of course, my sovereign. An escort of but a single moth is an insult, unworthy of your spider-y greatness. We shall fetch an entourage!"She turns, heading further into the village, wings lifting her with each skip as she moves. You keep pace easily behind her, though you refuse to meet the eyes of any watchers.
>>35202318>>35202326We should just be shiny ourselves, and then develop fluffy clothing.
>>35202353She pulls to a halt beneath a tree with a trio of silk bubbles around it, whistling sharply- And little moth heads poke out of every available hole, staring down at the three of you below.In short order, they've assembled- Literally assembled, as Nin is now acting sergeant, organizing them around you in an agonizing honor guard, which she leads beside the proud Sheszka. Her siblings all chatter as you travel, raising their tiny voices to chatter over each other."When did you get so big, anyway?" "And red!" "Really red." "You were black before.""I grew about a day or so after the ruins, when I-""And here is the towns fountain- We use this piece for drinking, and the deeper section for bathing-""Mama says we won't grow for a while." "Grandpa was really big." "His wings were neat." "He smelled funny.""This is where the village chief lives, milady. Would that I could invite you in, but your majesty would tear his meager home asunder-""Your armour is really nice." "I like your weapon!" "Can I hold it? Just for a minute, I promise I'll give it back!" "Its too big, you'd just fall down."Your escort dissolves into a shouting match, two of the brothers looking on while the other pair tries their best you shut down the other-You pull it to a gentle close by handing them your glave, dropping each to the ground in turn beneath its weight. Nin launches into another absurd explanation that you narrowly manage to blank out before Rie points overhead."Mama and Papa are home.">Head over and greet them. Before you can be introduced.>Walk over with the kids.>Wave them over to you>Other (?)
>>35202318>>35202326Observe, fluffy and shiny.We could work with something like this.
>>35202370>>Walk over with the kids.You can handle the banter
>>35202370>Head over and greet them. Before you can be introduced.This is just so embarrassing.
>>35202370>>Walk over with the kids.Nin is an alright kind of girl
>>35202370>>Head over and greet them. Before you can be introduced.WE GOTTA TAKE CONTROL BEFORE OUR BLUSHING GETS OUT OF HAND
>>35202370>>Walk over with the kids.Stay at about the pace of the moth-swarm that is fluttering around us.Also, maybe let them hold our spear. It's not like we really need it or anything. It's just handy to have a stabber that isn't our legs, for the purposes of cleanliness.
>>35202370>Head over and greet them. Before you can be introduced.quick! take the initiative!
>>35202318So, we put some decorative pelts all over us ? Thats not a bad idea at all anon ...
>Moth powder for naughty things>Lyra is curious as fuck>Lyra left with her LOYAL ALPHA WORSHIP pack mate>Mom sent Lyra to pick up Naughty powderMom didn't really think this through did she? OR Did she?
>>35202436>maybe let them hold our spear.They already tried, and failed.
>>35202370>Head over and greet them. Before you can be introduced.
>>35202377nice, but i think the upper legs should be fluffy too and the butt needs to be carapace shiny instead of hairless but squishy looking.
>>35202453I thought they just got into an argument about whether they could, they didn't actually get to try.
>>35202438No, as in, our LEGS up until they head inwards to meet with our body, are fluffy, so they are natural kneesocks.
>>35202370>Head over and greet them. Before you can be introduced.>>35202434i think it already is, hour face is probably about as crimson as our shell about now.
>>35202449Clearly we need an anon skilled in smut crafting to create a paste bin for us to examine this further.
>>35202370see if you can get the kids to ride your back, and shoulders, and head, that might distract them
>>35202469>You pull it to a gentle close by handing them your glave, dropping each to the ground in turn beneath its weight.MOTH IS WEAK.INFERIOR TO GLORIOUS SPIDERBUTT.
>>35202469>You pull it to a gentle close by handing them your glave, dropping each to the ground in turn beneath its weight.
>>35202370>Walk over with the kids.Let the kids have their fun.
>>35202370>>Head over and greet them. Before you can be introduced.
>>35202370>>Walk over with the kids.
>>35202493After reading this, I want to turn Elle into our own Hugo Boss.
>>35202471I'm fine with some fluff in the joints between legs and body. That's cool.But not fluff all along our legs.God that would be inconvenient for our normal motif of stab things with legs.Imagine the cleanup time.
>>35202370>Walk over with the kids.
>>35202525That just gives us an excuse to maintain it to ensure silky smoothness if anybody asks WHY it is so silky smooth and we cannot answer with just>I am a giant spider.
>>35202490Gimme 35 minutes, some smooth jazz and some beer, I'll make sure to crank out something.I've never written smut before, but I can damn well try.
>>35202525>Blood stained furry legs.Yeah... That's a good point. I'm thinking of a nice fluffy thorax where our human half is attached and a nice shiny abdomen.
>>35202564if you do, pastebin it.
>>35202623All fics are pastebinned anon, smut or no
>>35202590The problem is none of the currently available evolutions do that.
A last ditch attempt to not be introduced as Queen Lyra?Writing.
>>35202643None of the evolutions mention levels of fluffy vs shiny at all.This is all just speculation / wishful thinking.But if we come to some sort of consensus, REQM might throw us a bone and make our next evolution look something like what we want. Maybe.
>>35202698You can clearly see hair on the wolf spider. And none on the others.
>>35202698There is definitly some down on the legs of the WolfSpider. Thats the root of the discussion afterall.
>>35202708I doubt the level of detail on his doodles will be the deciding factor. Our evolutions will look how REQM wants them to look.How much he's willing to make small cosmetic changes to suit what we want is in the air.I'm still hoping for the Wolfspider so fluffy would be garenteed in that case, but a lot of people want to keep the shiny too.
>>35202800Fluffy legs shiny spider bum
>>35202800>Our evolutions will look how REQM wants them to look.Since he made them, that pretty clearly shows how he intends them to look like.
>>35202800I just want to give fluffy hugs.
>>35202683Please merciful REQM let this succeed I don't think poor Lyra can take anymore embarrassment
>>35202851yes she can
>>35202851>let this succeedIt won't
>>35202851she will take MUCH MORE embarrassment.
>>35202851Shes red for a reason
>>35202851>Admiral Mom Mothma recognizes us>Sees our red stylin' self>Cue being drowned in Fluffy MILF tits.>Lyra dies of embarassment>God of Protection: "Wat"
>>35202831Grave spider, with the second joint ( the one at the top) having a ring of fur. Also, a ring of fur around the end of each chitin glove, which have now reached mid bicep. rings of fur at wrists debatable.
>>35202912Ara Ara~ delicious
Lyra is not resistant to emotional type damage.Also I agree with the 12 seconds older moth about how older sisterdom works.
>>35202988"Older sisterdom" makes me think naughty thoughts.
>>35203177>Aria and her Tsundere>Sara and her Magicbuttself
>>35203177Mate, don't tempt me.
hey REQM, how many levels did that Turlegator give us and Sheszka?
>>35203255hopefully not many.We level super fast as it is.
>>35203451But our EXP gain is capped, so it is to be expected that we level superhard and supahfast.
>>35203470too fast!Besides, that croc was probably too weak to give us proppa XP.
>>35203498The shadowbear was weaker and it combined with more of mom's training bumped us up 15-20 levels.
>>35203544Wait no, I'm thinking of Sheszka.
>>35203544the shadowbear put up a WAY better fight.
>>35203635but our strategy with the croc was superb...
>>35203635Yeah, but we pulled off some REAL impressive shit with Turtlegator.
You watch as the parents circle, their loops closing as they near the ground. Your mouth dries, your spine tingles.You've got one chance. One last shot. You step forward- Nin's eyes follow, her grin growing wider. The children try to step in time, but your stride is in another dimension. The wind catches your hair, ponytail trailing behind you as you make a mad dash for the moth's parents.Nin has taken to the air- but she's no Jin, wings straining to keep up with your speed. Sheszka is trotting along beside you effortlessly, a confused but happy smile writ across her face.The adult moths stare as you bear down on them, a red juggernaut hurtling straight towards them. Nin is trying to shout something, her voice lost to the wind as you grind to a halt before them-"HELLOYES MYNAMEISLYRA IMNIA'SDAUGHTER HI"Nin- followed quite closely by her siblings- collides with your back at your sudden stop, as a half dozen soft thumps emanate from your spider half, a family of moth children sent sprawling across the packed earth."-the quuuueeeeeeeen....." Nin croaks out as her voice trails away.
>>35203673The two moths look at each other as you pant, hands resting against your spider limbs, eyebrows arched delicately. Eventually, the husband pipes up."You are... Nia's daughter?""Yes. Lyra."His wife smiles earnestly at you, taking your hand in hers."You were the one that rescued Rie. What brings you to he village, little one?"She laughs at that."However inappropriate that may now be."You pull your bags free while the moth pile behind you begins to seperate, The little ones pulling themselves free."Mom- Mom ran out of dust, yes? She sent me with silk."She takes each jar in turn, opening them and sniffing, antennae wriggling."Ah. Healing dust, and-"Her face turns a little red as she seals the seconds jar."And your father is home now, I see."You pick a point somewhere behind her, staring pointedly and not thinking about anything."Yes.""Mhm. I will go and fetch these for you, then. You can give Kri the silk." She flutters off, and you hand her husband the silk in a daze, Nin walking dizzily past our legs, declaring the village a fundamental piece of Lyraville. Her father raises an eyebrow before heading into the canopy, stashing the silk in their home.She returns a short while after, still wearing the same blush, and turns over the now full jars to you. Securing them in your bags takes only a moment- And you ready yourself for the trip home, exchanging thanks with the family. Nin lines her siblings before you, executing a picture perfect salute, and you return a wave goodbye. The forest opens up before you, and you spend a moment squinting in the sunlight after spending too long in the moth's twilight.Now that you thnk about it, that really wasn't any better of an introduction.Your cheeks burn.>Race home- Hand off the jars. Make plans. Dungeon plans.>Hunt lightly as you go- Nothing big enough to smash the jars, just a few snacks.>Just head home, chatting with Sheszka. (topics?)>Other (?)
>>35203688>>Race home- Hand off the jars. Make plans. Dungeon plans.Lots of dungeon plans

>>35203688>Just head home, chatting with Sheszka. (topics?)Did any other of her pack or family get away? Any friends we can try to save? What does she remember of her father's stories of the spider queen?
>>35203737>Lewd dust confirmed.>yfw we could have been making the lewd dust if we had chosen moth in the beginning
>>35203673>a half dozen soft thumps emanate from your spider half>"-the quuuueeeeeeeen....."my sides>>35203688>Race home- Hand off the jars. Make plans. Dungeon plans.and nice, lewd dust definitely confirmed.

>>35203688>Other (?)Test the dust in both jars. Clearly they must do something impressive to be sent all this way for them.
>>35203761Its gonna take a day at least anyway to prepare and get Jin there.
>>35203688Aw man, I wanted to ask the moths if they wanted us to act as intermediaries with the village to get some trade going with the outside world.
>>35203688>>Just head home, chatting with Sheszka. (topics?)So, how about them moths.Could YOU tell them apart?
>>35203688>Hunt lightly as you go- Nothing big enough to smash the jars, just a few snacks.
>>35203761We should invent peanut butter and jelly
>>35203688>>Race home- Hand off the jars. Make plans. Dungeon plans.Race home with a face as red as your shell.Give a knowing look to mom about that second jar.
>>35203688>Race home- Hand off the jars. Make plans. Dungeon plans.Also.>Taste the Naughty powder with Sheszka
>>35203737wait, why exactly did she suddenly run low on healing dust at the same time as lewd dust...
>>35203688>>Race home- Hand off the jars. Make plans. Dungeon plans.Dungeon diving is a go! We need to organize our party.
>>35203833Lewd powder is already going to make it into every lewd writefaggotry. Using it "canonically" would collapse the waveform.
>Dungeon plans.Yes, we need to make plans.SARA! If we tell her about the magic that sent pulses through the walls, she'll jump the idea.JIN. We can't go on our first dungeon crawl without our best Harpy!We... We need to take Sara to the town to visit Jin. We'll tell her about the dungeon once we're on the move. If we tell her in the nest, he SQUEE will alert Mom... If we alert Mom about the dungeon, there will be no dungeon. She'll purge it just to make sure we don't get in trouble.PLAN.>Make excuse to take Sara to village.>Tell Sara about magic dungeon.>Pick up Jin.>Have Shez lead us back to the dungeon.>Our Adventuring Party is ready!
>>35203854damnit.Damnit anon.It must be a coincidence.
>>35203688>Race home- Hand off the jars. Make plans. Dungeon plans.yesss adventure calls!we will take sara and jin and our cute little woffie
>>35203854She is a Giant Spider. With absurdly sharp claws and enormous strength.He is a elf.Do the math.
>>35203688adorableare we keeping jins feather in a treasure box/display case?we need to get one next time we are the village. both to protect it and be fancy.although... actually we should probably study the social implications of different display methods. I imagine there is "carry with us always", "wear as an accessory", etc.
>>35203854probably run low on lewd dust the night before Dad left, and since she had to look after us, she didn't have enough time to get some more...
>>35203854Speaking of healing dust we should see if SpiderMama will give us a pouch-full just in case, we might need it for when we go dungeon diving
>>35203895oh ye gods, i didn't even make the connection until now.i just assumed we used it up with our shenanigans
>>35203936we haven't gone through puberty yet. why in the world would we need lewd dust? and how do we explain to mom how we know what it is?>>35203954dude no!
>>35203688>Race home- Hand off the jars. Make plans. Dungeon plans.>Other (?)One more vote for testing the Lewd dust with Shezka. What could possible go wrong?
>>35203878We should also take Aria with us to get fitted for her armor, and Elle wanted to visit the village. The Twins should come along to talk with trappers and hunters to see if they can bring in something they want.
>>35203964it would tie into telling her we reincarnated from another world/reality/etc.
>>35203964>>35203987Is it lewd dust or just fantasy contraceptive?
>>35203964He said healing dust, not lewd dust.
>>35203987We weren't even a lesbian in our previous life and neither of us have entered puberty. There is no need for the dust.
Racing and plans. Writing.
anyone else think we should tell mom about the whole reincarnation thing?
>>35203990fair point... we are getting to have too many allies. We won't be able to fit them all into the dungeons.you know, mom and dad might actually want to come with on our first dungeon exploration to supervise or something. then again, what is the fun in that
>>35204001Why don't we find out?>>35204011Her face turns a little red as she seals the seconds jar."And your father is home now, I see.If this isn't lewd dust I don't know what is.
>>35203964We explain by saying we two animals going at it, and Lyra is smart enough to figure out where babies come from.
>>35204035I'd rather not
>>35204011healing dust and "other dust" that causes blushing and that the parents tell their children they will explain what they do when they are "older".>>35204001possible>>35203998which we don't want to
>>35204037Yeah, but the quoted anon said we should ask for some healing dust, not the lewd dust.
>>35204057Anon said we should get a pouch of healing dust, he never mentioned the lewd dust
>>35204022>We weren't even a lesbian in our previous lifeCould you not make stuff up ?If you want het, then vote for it when the time comes, we know literally nothing about Lyras romantic life or orientation in her previous life.
>>35204037reread the post-chain you quoted, he said to ask mom for a bag of healing dust.from >>35203936>Speaking of healing dust we should see if SpiderMama will give us a pouch-full
>>35204081oh, i totally misreadactually mom probably sent us to get healing dust so she can give us a pouchful. she already armored uswait, I just remembered mom already gave us and we are currently carrying in our inventory healing items. We got potions, herbs, salves... the whole 9 yards
>>35204126I assume those are made with the dust, I don't think you use the dust raw. Either kind.
>>35204082>If you want het, then vote for it when the time comesAnd the time is now because people want to use an aphrodisiac on Lyra and Sheszka together.
>>35204138what, no.Nobody suggested that.That was just one guy comically misreading another guy.
>>35204126>wait, I just remembered mom already gave us and we are currently carrying in our inventory healing items. We got potions, herbs, salves... the whole 9 yardsOur inventory doesn't say anything about having them
>>35204136>peopleTwo votes. And no one cared, because it was a joke. If it bothers you, put up a vote "don't use lewd dust on Sheszka" if you want to play it safe. Making shit up will not strengthen your position.
>>35204113>>35204066I must of missread/missquoted.I would've sworn another anon asked for the lewd dust... anyway. It's moot now not enough votes for lewd>>35204138If you'd been paying attention you'd realize that it isn't happening.And just like >>35204082said, that still isn't a reason to make stuff up. If I remember the opening thread correctly we didn't even have a social life, it's quite possible that Lyra (then Sarah) didn't really know much about her sexuality as a human. Or perhaps she did, but the fact remains that we don't know.
And now, for a preview of next time on Re:Monster>I tried some of that dust, but it still hurts>really? It usually heals as soon as you rub it in!>Oh. I ate it.>That's our lyra!>laughtrack
>>35204231I like you anon.
>>35204186well, it seems it was last updated on the same day as chapter 21.I distinctly remember getting those. lemme go back and read for them. It is possible that we got those before ch 21 and QM forgot to add them
>>35204287Use that gdoc he posted, its easier to cntrl f through
>>35204198We had a small but active social life among a tight-knit group of friends. >You spent more time with computers than with people, and there was no-one waiting for you at home, but you had your few close friends. People had split off and faded from memory as you'd all grown up, but a there was a small, tight-knit group that had stuck it out, kept in contact. Everyone met up Thursdays, headed out to whatever family restaurant had won the vote last week, piled into a booth and enjoyed the warmth of friendship.
>>35204231The following time on Re:Monster>I-I tried the dust again.>And did you rub it in?>I did, b-but it didn't seem to do much. Then Shezka started licking the wound. And then...>Lyra, you're supposed to only use the dust in the green jar.>Now she tells me!>laughtrack
>>35204373So we're not a shut in or a neet. But I notice a distinct lack of any romance. I gathered that these are the sort of "My brother my sister" friends, ones that are just as close or closer than family.So I think it's still possible that Lyra doesn't have much past life experience to draw upon. Of course, it could go either way, we'll have to wait and see if REQM ever definitively answers that question.
>>35204419I'm not even sure it would matter. We underwent some pretty significant changes, Lyra isn't the same person as Sarah anymore, just alone because of the different chemistry of her still not adult body. She isn't starting completly from scratch, but I also don't think her mind still works quite the same way as before.
>>35204373Now I've got this image in my head of all of Lyra's old friends slowly drifting apart after her death. They'd try to keep meeting up, but they could all tell it was forced, and eventually they just stopped altogether.
>>35204475I bet one of them was the killer.
>>35204475>>35204486It IS Japan...I think...
>>35204486Lyra was getting closer to one of the guys in the group slowly. The other chick got jealous and new that if Lyra was dead he would need consoling. So she killed her.
>>35204516 The twist is, that Sarah actually only wanted to get him to hook her up with the girl that got jealous I stop now.
>>35204516>Group splits apart>It was all for naught.>Has to spend the rest of her life knowing she killed her friend for fucking nothing.>>35204541>mfw
>>35204512Her name was Sarah. So either American or European. The time of death suggests American working hours. Trains would indicate one of the larger cities that still has a working public rail mass transit system.
>>35204541She killed herself afterwards she couldn't live with the guilt. Her name is now Sarah... or Aria.
You irritably at your cheeks, still feeling the heat of your visit. The sedate pace of your return trip leaves your mind wandering...Banishing all your thoughts to the back of your mind, you flag down Sheszka, and speak the magic word."Race?"The wolf's smile bares all her teeth, and you answer with one of your own- before your both lunge forward.Trees fly by, birds and small animals launching themselves from your oath in a panic as you tear through the woods. The arches blur as you pass beneath them, hot on the heels of the wolf- she's definitely faster, but her stamina isn't as good. As long as you keep to areas you can actually run in, you've got a chance.The ruins hurtle towards you, then away as you blow through the magic-scarred meadow ringing them, the first strings of silk in the trees marking your approach home.Sheszka is panting heavily, mouth hanging open as she rushes for the tree, tearing at the ground. You thunder behind her, her pace faltering as you close- and you both put on a final burst as the tree comes into sight, your companion touching the trunk only moments before you. You collapse side by side, tearing your shield free and gulping water down messily before handing it off to the exhausted wolf. You spend a few minutes at the foot of the tree, waiting till the burn in your limbs peters down to a dull ache, and you haul yourselves up into the nest.Your sibling are absent, though Mom is waiting above, surprised to see you."Lyra? Why are you home so early, little one?"
>>35204554You look here -> >>35204559
>>35204559>Her name is now Sarah... or Aria.That .. that wouldn't be such a terrible twist actually. Both getting to start over. Its absurdly unlikely, but I like the idea.
>>35204562You suck in a lungful of air, your voice hoarse after the exertion."Race..."She looks between the two of you, Sheszka having sunk down and spread herself limply along the floor."Did you run all the way from the village?""Yes.""Why?""Felt like- felt like running."She laughs gaily, and takes the jars as you offer them, placing them side by side at the trunk."You are ridiculous, dearheart. Did you have any trouble finding the village?">"No.">"The guards were kinda rude- everyone was surprised to see Sheszka.">Tell her about the dungeon- Get some advice, at least.>Other (?)
>>35204555I had assumed it was Japan because of the train system.I didn't say Sarah/Lyra was Japanese, just that Japan is the only place in mind that makes great use as trains as a popular choice of civilian transport.
>>35204586>Tell her about the dungeon- Get some advice, at least.
>>35204586>"No.">Tell her about the dungeon- Get some advice, at least.We found a dungeon so we ran all the way home once our job was done!Now can we go dungeoning?
>>35204587Could've just been a metro. Or we lived in New York or something.
>>35204586>>"No.">>"The guards were kinda rude- everyone was surprised to see Sheszka.">>Tell her about the dungeon- Get some advice, at least.
>>35204586>"No.">OtherAsk her what she was doing with Father that required the special dust, and why everyone we asked blushed when we tried to get answers.
>>35204586>>Tell her about the dungeon- Get some advice, at least.
>>35204586>"No.">How could we get fastest in contact with Jin ? You seemed to be able to get in touch with her mom
>>35204559>Aria resolves to be the best sister ever to make up for her past actions. She doesn't like to spend too much time with Sara though, because of her name.Then another one of her siblings Lyra becomes even stronger than her in every way. The feelings of jealousy, buried under all the guilt, begin to stir again...
>>35204586>"No.">tell her about the queen incident.
>>35204587>is the only place in mind that makes great use as trains as a popular choice of civilian transportNot even close, thats true for pretty much all of Central Europe.
>>35204559I can`t see it.They're all too happy. Even Lyra was broken up with nightmares for a bit. We'd notice if one of our sisters was suffering severe depression. Could you imagine? Killing yourself because you don't deserve to live, and waking up to a second chance? They'd have broken down. 'Why do I get one when she didn't?'
>>35204663She could have resolved to become a better person this time, its all a matter of mindset.
>>35204586>>"No.""Easy to find. Apparently I am the Queen of the Moth village. I had no say in the matter."
>>35204586>"No.">Tell her about the dungeon- Get some advice, at least.I got the healing dust and the adult dust.
>>35204663Well if we follow this fan-theory, she killed us because we were getting closer to one of our mutual guy friends, so it wouldn't surprise me that she would be a bit of a petty bitch and be perfectly fine in a reincarnate scenario.
>>35204586>"The guards were kinda rude- everyone was surprised to see Sheszka."
>>35204586>"No.">"Everyone was surprised with Sheszka.">"So there's this dungeon..."
>>35204663Or she figures "Oh. Okay. So when you die, you become a giant spider lady. Neat. I hope Sarah's okay now. Hey, maybe I can find her later?"
>>35204663Or she's in bliss because she got her second chance. That never happened she's Aria now. But this Lyra bitch is ruining things just like Sarah did.Or! She's Sarah... she got what she wanted She's Sarah now! Now he'll fall for her if he's in this world!
>>35204586>"No.">Tell her about the dungeon- Get some advice, at least.>But you can't come! Its my first dungeon!
>>35204737That is just nightmarishly twisted.
>>35204737>>35204686You both forget the part where she killed herself out of guilt. So not a petty bitch, just one who's a bit shallow or gets jealous easily.
>>35204586>noI am tempted to tell her about the queen teasing thing... but considering how embarassed lyra got it woudl be out of character to do so>Tell her about the dungeon- Get some advice, at least.
>>35204737Those don't really make sense, the idea is that she killed herself out of regret of having murdered Sarah, so she must feel remorse about it at least initially.
>>35204758It's a genuine possibility, it wouldn't really be that surprisingly.THAT is the scary part.>>35204767Guilt, yes, but guilt for killing Lyra? Or guilt for fucking everything up for herself and the other friends?
>>35204737>>35204758It would also explain why Sara is always so happy and likes everyone... along with her demented streak when it comes to blowing stuff up...
>>35204617thanks. can't find a note about keeping any healing items. so apparently my memory is fail
>>35204767Really? She is totally a petty bitch. She killed her friend and then instead of handling or facing consequences she killed herself. Hell if you're just reborn again why not Keep doing it till you get everything you want?
>>35204799That would invalidate the theory because none of our sisters seem to be that shallow.
>>35204820We haven't even gone through puberty yet, and we are the "eldest"
>>35204820Neither did the girl in question.
>>35204781The second part is a bit of a weak reason for someone so shallow to kill herself. Either she is that shallow that she wouldn't regret murdering Sarah, in which case she wouldn't be bothered by the second part ot such an extent, or she isn't so shallow and really regreted it and killed herself.To be honest though, I just prefer the "wanting to start over" thing, her staying a petty bitch or having been one after killing herself out of remorse doesn't jive with me.
Now now guys.No reason to run wild with your reincarnation speculation.
>>35204838We don't know, she might have and Sarah was just blinded by her infatuation for her.
>>35204860But it's fun!And what if...The boy we were getting closer to killed us because the girl had a crush on us, and he had a crush on her?
>>35204864That could be the same situation here with Little Sarah. We love her to bits. But she enjoys hitting us repeatedly with stars. Which as far as I understand it is a painful experience and never shows anything but joy.
What?I don't evenAnyway, chatter and dungeon advice!
>>35204883 And then he reincarnated as a female harpy
>>35204860>meanwhile, reqm is quietly shuffling through his notes and throwing away the pages about reincarnation
Unless reincarnation involves time travel, our killer would have to have killed themselves moments after us.and how? nobody was on the tracks with us when we got hit by that train.Also, you guys are mean to sarah to even suggest that.And nothing in her personality even remotely suggests that.
>>35204860The arguing is this quest is great. So much fun talking about big spider, skelly spider or fluffy spider.
>>35204883... Are you a chick? Because a guy wouldn't do that. Try to get away with two timing both girls? Yes. Kill a girl he isn't even dating so he can go out with yet another girl? No, just no.
>>35204894Its actually not painful at all, she doesn't hit us with the stars, she throws them at us and we redirect them with our spellbreaking, she never hurts us, its just scary getting them thrown at oyu. Its more a expression of the blind trust Sarah has that her big sister is invincible.
>>35204922Why not? Us men are perfectly capable of being insane and irrational.
>>35204905Why would reincarnation into a different dimension have any relationship with time whatsoever? In in our own universe time is a fluid thing (if you start moving at fast enough speeds), there is no logical reason why time should flow linearly with regards to reincarnation.
>>35204922There are all sorts anon, all sorts.I remember such a case actually having been in the news here once.
>>35204905Well, reincarnation jumped us from a 27 year old body into a babyspider that hasn't hatched yet in another dimension where the laws of nature and physics as we know them have been bent over and fucked raw.Speaking of which, did we kill our Body's old soul? Was it destined to be stillborn unless we stepped in? Were we attached to the body when it was developing inside the egg? Did our reincarnation casually rewrite reality to include us?I enjoy giving REQM a headache, because I love him like that.
>>35204930Hmm. Clearly Sarah needs to see Lyra beaten and broken. Twitching and half crushed begging for death.
>>35204944that is not an accurate representation of time.
>>35204922What? Dude shit like that happens, anything you can think of involving murder has happened several times already, because humans are assholes like that.
>>35204905I see no reason why it wouldn't ? I mean, we have no frame of reference for "time difference", its very possible, we don't even know at wich point the "reincarnating" happens, if its instant or delayed..
>>35204934>>35204946Okay I guess so. I was operating under the assumption that the guy in question wasn't insane, but looking back that isn't a safe assumption to make.Inb4 the guy killed both Sarah and the other girl and they both get reincarnated as spider people.
>>35204946Or trying to kill another guy to impress a girl that doesn't even know him...
>>35204952you are assuming a soul is given to the body at conception, and that our soul enter the body at birth. both assumptions can be wrong.For all you know our soul entered the body at conception, and it just FELT like an instant to us.
>>35204952Or perhaps all births are reincarnations, and we just remember ours previous life for some reason.
All of this is horrifying, and it reassures me that much more that reqm has stated we won't meet anyone else who reincarnated.
>>35204973I'm a bit concerned that you think a woman who murders another woman to date a man ISN'T insane.
>>35204973That's too nice. I prefer the idea that a sociopath is hidden among our sisters.
>>35204980I find this to be the most plausible
>>35204979Or we were reincarnated as sperm
This entire branch of aimless discussion has filled me with a strange amount of fear at something we haven't discussed yet.What would happen to our brothers if one of them died?
>>35204973Months from now, halfway across the world we meet a 'madwoman' monstergirl ranting about trains and being murdered.
>>35205013The other one would eat his corpse.
>>35205013Have you ever read "Where The Red Fern Grows"? Prepare for tears.
>>35205013i believe they will reincarnate, but probably forget their past life
>>35204961... Time and space literally bend and skew to keep the speed of light constant.At relativistic speeds, time slows down, this is an accepted theory of physics. Unless some major breakthrough has happened recently that I haven't heard of, my representation of time was accurate for it's specific example (i.e. time, isn't experienced at a constant rate when one moving at near the speed of light).
>>35204992 Lyra But seriously, the theory has only any appeal to me if its genuine redemption and remorse involved, anything else wouldn't fit the tone of the story for me, I associate these kinds of stories with second chances. At worst she is terrible now and once we find out, its time for healing~
>>35205013Clearly the soul of the dead brother would merge with the living one. Thus they would truly become one.
Y'know it says something about REQM's quest that we actually give a fuck about his prologue.I'm just not sure WHAT.
>>35204993I'm pretty sure reqm said something about it early on.
>>35204989We'd already established that the woman in question was off her rocker for the given situation. I just assumed she was the only off one in our group of friends.
>>35205060we don't even know who pushed out, or if it was a woman or a man
>>35205070We don't even know if our entire previous life was actually "real" or if we were just given fake memories by a god for some cosmic laugh or bet.When speculating you have to establish some things are given to move forward, knowing that you might have to go back and revise your assumptions later.On a more relevant example, we don't even know if we were killed by accident or on purpose. Would you like to spend an hour or two debating that as well?
>>35205070It was a girl who knew that, if she killed that particular girl then killed herself, she would find her true love in another life.She reincarnated, without memories but a strange sense of having another person within her head. She's trying her best to stop referring to herself in the plural.
>>35205120Fucking Jin and her god damn voodoo magic.
>>35205112That it was hand that shoved her, implies very strongly it was on purpose. Strongly enough that I would consider it sure.
This quest has some of the most delightful derails and random speculation. I like this game!
>>35205158I feel Conspiracy Anon would be at home here. But far as I know he stays in Horde quest and Titans quest.
>>35205138Or just someone who really wanted to get on the train? Plenty of accidents are caused by people just in a hurry who disregard the consequences of their actions.ex:My father was almost T-boned at an intersection by a car that ran a red light, had he sped up to catch the light before it changed (he had green the whole time) he would have been hit.And also, Hanlon's razor applies to this situation.>Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
>>35205188thank god he stays there, his namefagging encouraged a bunch of others to namefag in hoard quest, which got old within 20 posts.
>>35205120I got the implication that all harpies refer to themselves in plural until taught not to. something to do with instinctive language
>>35205196I see no way how someone could put a hand on her back and press forward while the train wasn't there yet. Its not impossible, but purpose is more likely.
>>35205196I could accept that, but the situation (waiting for a train coming in, crowd of people around her, hand deliberately hitting her back just as the train pulls in) kind of makes that unlikely.
>>35205196>Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.So it was a guy trying to ask her out but he panicked and pushed her instead killing her? Tiny adventurer in the town is actually a murderer who freaked out when he saw Sarah's likeness in Lyra.
>>35205196It was implied that it was a hand giving us a hard shove forward, it wasn't someone stumbling into us or shuffling past and accidentally ramming us, it was a quick and hard shove.>Our death was most likely chalked up to "Suicide" and never investigated.
>>35205237>>35205254>>35205251There were a bunch of people, the person pushing could just as easily been trying to push Lyra out of the way so that they would be first in line. In a press of bodies, the force of the shove ended up pushing her forwards insteadBut we're getting off track, my point is, we could potentially debate every part of this fan theory. We could do that, till we're all dead, and we still wouldn't make much progress. Something's have to be taken as gives (i.e. someone intentionally killed lyra) for us to develop the theory anymore. And fleshing out the theory is the fun part.Also>>35205256>Impliedlol
>>35205234It's basically me bullshitting, mate. Don't believe a single word of it.
>>35205290 inb4 we wake up in a hospital after having spent the last two months in a coma. We are now paralyzed from the waste down and will never move our human legs again.
You grumble a bit, flattening yourself next to your new half-wolf rug."Finding the village was easy, yes. Straight through the arches, and on into the village.""Mhm. Well done, yes? I fully expected you to crawl over the edge with another bear in tow.""I would not.""You have a habit, little one. A bear habit.""That is not a thing.""It is only a bear here and there now, but for how long? Before you know it, you're hunting bears all the time-"You interrupt her with a little smirk of your own."So, why was everyone embarrassed about the other dust? Even Sil would not tell me what it was, yes."Mom's jaw clamps shut, her cheeks burning instantly.It feels good to not be the one blushing, for once."That is- Older. Yes. I will tell you when you are older.""When is that?""A Lot Older. Years and years, yes."You giggle a bit from your spot on the floor, wiggling you legs into more comfortable positions. Sheszka's breathing has already evened out, and she snores gently, her face smooshed into the nest. You watch her sleep, chest rising and falling, tail twitching as she starts to dream."The guards were rude, yes. Everyone was surprised by Sheszka."Her ears twitch at her name, even in rest."When we told Nin that I had taken her, she declared- Ah, no. Nevermind."Your mother smiles, raising an eyebrow at your sudden derail. She waits a few moments for you to start again, giving up and answering your question."It has been... a very, very long time since there were any wolves in the woods, yes? They spend so much time fighting, trying to rule each other- But none of them ever submit."She shakes her head slowly."It does not end, little one."
>>35205697The silence is solemn, heavy. You squirm a bit beneath its weight, squeaking out your secret to push it away."I, ah. I found a dungeon."Mom watches you, blinking slowly."What?""There was a wide staircase, beneath a tree- and it was dark, but I couldn't even see through it- and when I stepped onto the stair, the runes carved into the walls pulsed, and a wave of them rushed down the hallway below-"Your voice is picking up, and you can't keep our excitement from bursting out."-I'll go back. I'll get to go through a dungeon. I'll, I'll have to bring Jin. I promised- but it was- it was just- You could smell how old it was, yes? Just the feeling of the weight of time, the magic leading below. I wanted to follow it, I wanted to-"You glance up, your mother quietly watching as you gush, her expression unreadable. You fall silent, and she swipes the hair from her eyes, sighing lightly as she looks at you."A dungeon in the woods. And one we haven't found... I wonder if it opened recently, then."She pinches the bridge of her nose as she thinks, leaning back into her spider half."At the least, it is good you have the armour, yes. You will need to speak to your father about traps, youngling. Dungeons are not ruins. While you will mostly find undead, and elementals below... They are meant to kill, Lyra. People are not meant to find their treasures."You watch her as she quiets, planning."It will be a busy few days for you, I think. I am tempted to say that you cannot go down without your father at least- and I am more tempted to simply do it myself- But I am thinking you would not tell me where it is, yes?"You smile back, and she echoes it."Rest a while, little one. It will not go anywhere."You yawn, chin against the floor, curling our arms beneath your head and closing your eyes.
>>35205517just as well. after losing spiderlegs, why ever walk again? what would be the point?
>>35205697>"You have a habit, little one. A bear habit.">"That is not a thing.">"It is only a bear here and there now, but for how long? Before you know it, you're hunting bears all the time-"ilu mom
>>35205517We die again and wake up as a newborn double-drider. x2 spiderbutt combo!
>>35205720>That's it for tonight!>Next thread will probably be thursday, 2PM EST>Questions and comments answered while I'm in thread!And you are not in a coma. To hell with speculation, its a garbage trope. It isn't fun, it isn't clever, and it sure as fuck isn't deep or meaningful. I will never yank the carpet out beneath my players so thoroughly that there isn't a floor to land on. That's bullshit.
>>35205697A habit is a terrible thingOne cannot bear to resist it
>>35205796Shut up Monokuma
>>35205783Fun thread REQm see you next time
>>35205783Thanks for running! Archival reminder!Hey, question. What is the difference between an arachneXhuman kid, an arachneXarachne kid, and an arachneXelf kid?If it was a male arachne and a female elf, would the kids be elves with arachne traits?
>>35205783So... what you're saying is that our other theories about reincarnation and the person who killed us are possibly valid?
>>35205783Great thread, had a few good laughs, thanks for running. Looking very much forward to our dungeon crawl.
>>35205826I'm guessing that monster traits are dominant. Arachne will always have arachne children (kinda like succubi from Rosario + vampire), but that does raise questions about how a human/elf would give birth to an arachne... harpies and moths not so much.
>>35205831I wish I could convey a scoff through text.It's obvious that REQM was actually the anons coming up with the ideas in the first place!REQM is a master manipulator, I mean, just look at the way he has driven us into the harem route!
>>35205796that pun was unbearable
>>35205783thanks for running and thanks for that reassurance.not that i thought you would do something like that anyways
>>35205889I swear to god anon if you keep making bear puns I'm going to go bearzerk.
>>35205909That would bear watching.
>>35205909pls bear with me a little longer
>>35205783based REQM, both for the great thread and next thread soon, and for nipping that coma crap in the bud.
>>35205783great run man, and even though I was one of the people that wanted to be a moth person after seeing they have the ability to induce lust in others I'm kinda glade we went the spider route. /tg/ should NEVER have that kind of power.
>>35205926Oi. I was the one to come up with the coma senario.It was total crap I admit it!
>>35205804>>35205826>>35205838Thanks for playing!>>35205831I'll confirm you were murdered, at least. I'll leave the rest to your imagination.>>35205874>>35205826It depends on what you're mixing. Races breed pure, but some traits transfer through- Arachne ears are pointy but short, yours are a fair bit longer. If Mom had been the elf, You'd have been born elves, but likely with pointy-er teeth, and maybe a few 'eye' birthmarks.
>>35205920you like watching, eh? want me to bear it all?
>>35205960>I'll confirm you were murderedIt was Sara wasn't it, she invented dimensional / time travel and pushed us onto the train tracks so we would reincarnate to be BEST SISTER and eventual BEST QUEEN and follow into BEST SAVIOR OF THE COSMOS.Alternatively, I'm going to punch you in the dick, you fucking cock tease.
>>35205960One of our siblings confirmed for murdering psychopath it's Lyra
>>35205960Yes.So we have elvish traits.Time to have the long pointed ears.
>>35205960Will our murder have ANY effect on the story what-so-ever?
>>35206076now now anon. That would be telling
>>35205904>>35205926>>35205943Thanks for playing!As promised: Extra evolution info!Aside from the listed major change type arachne evolutions, there's an absurd number of half evolutions- There's progression into one of the hundred thousand 'Lord' type monsters. Lyra could be moving towards earth lord, or just regular lord (which is a monster who specializes in weapons). These evo's would introduce horns and gems somewhere on her body, with corresponding powers.There's a few diet based evolutions, like vampires/ghouls, though they're not very likely.>>35206076It started your adventure, and it's definitely had an impact on how I've written Lyra.
>>35206111Please say that Lyra will never lose her Spiderbutt.My heart couldn't bear the lack of Drider-Lyra.
>>35206111So if we started drinking the blood of our kills we could become a vampire spider? Or would be become a vampire and lose our spiderbutt... because .... no. I like the spiderbutt.
>>35206111Is it possible to evolve multiple times in a single evolution cycle?Like, Evolve into one of our greater monster forms, and while evolving into said form evolve into a Lord, so we emerge as ~Whatever~+Lord?
>>35206111>earth lordaha! that would be for magic, since our magic is earthso the wolf / orb / grave is not... mmm, you know maybe we need to be more literal.wolf because we got wolf pack, grave because we fought a necromancer?
>>35206132At the absolute maximum, she might gain the ability to shapeshift partially, leaving her a chitin-clad elf with extra spider limbs extending from her back. I wouldn't permanently remove the initial draw of the quest.>>35206149You'd be a vampire-spider.>>35206159Nah. One step at a time. You're likely to end up with variants at this rate anyway, which is kind of like a double evo.
>>35206187pretty much.And orb because we've been weavin' and fighting with weavin'.
>>35206195>chitin-clad elf with extra spider limbs extending from her backthat'smyfetish.jpg
>>35206195Everything you said just now fills me with joy.I love you, strange unknown man on the otherside of my computer screen.
>>35206195honestly hope we don't focus on magic or go lord, far more interesting that way and i am not enamored with the "sparkly gems everywhere" from lord.we are plenty powerful without magic, which almost always ends up being stupid powerful in most quests.
>>35206322We should just focus on weaving, spider rampage, and spellbreaking.Those three provide us utility, smashing, and anti-mageworks.
>>35206322I'm fine with part-magic like we are now. Using it more as an ace-in-the-hole than as something to rely on all the time.
>>35206195>At the absolute maximum, she might gain the ability to shapeshift partially, leaving her a chitin-clad elf with extra spider limbs extending from her back. I wouldn't permanently remove the initial draw of the quest.>I am a giant spider>Giant spider butt foomps out behind us.
>>35206365i would restrict it to mostly utility, like getting past a cave-in or lifting us so we can reach something that is too tall for us to normally reach. useful stuff, just not really that useful in the middle of combat compared to just ripping something apart with our hands/weapons.occasionally it could also be an escape card too, like raising barriers behind us as we run for our lives.hell you could even fluff it into the story, the stronger our anti-magic ability gets the harder it becomes to do regular magic or something.
Y'know, when I imagine "Earth Lord Lyra" I don't see all these fancy jewels or shit on her, I see vines of ivy and thorns growing on our armor and a couple perfectly round rocks orbiting our Spiderbutt and head.
>>35206531Our anti-magic doesn't work like that though. It works by taking command of the user's spell away from them, it's just that we only know how to dispel these stolen spells at this point. We are less of an anti-mage, and more of a spell thief.
>>35206550The one earth lord in the book is an amazonian girl with horns and a starburst gem on each elbow.
>>35206550I don't see jewelry either.The only shiny we have is shell and hair. Assuming polish and shampoo.
>>35206590and our armor.Can't be GLORIOUS CHEVALIER DRIDER KNIGHT LYRA WHO SAVES ALL THE BEAUTIFUL AND CUTE GIRLS with non-shiny armor!
>>35206584And the spell lord is a horned chick with tattoos up her arms and a gem centered on her foreheadBut all the book characters start from a humanoid base
>>35206609I miss when we were going to use Jin as our wingman when we couldn't go inside places to help us court the boys.
>>35206609exactly.Shiny armor, shiny self.
>>35206781I'm still aiming for that
>>35206781That's still what we are going to do.I just don't talk about it all the damn time.
>>35206531You know, it's occured to me that our inability to absorb mana might be tied to the fact that our soul originates from a world without magic. In the LN admiral turbo-sue got his powers from his previous life and the augmentations he got, right?
>>35206891Ahahaha, fuck.I looked it up- the mc gets internal mana control via eating a mage. He wasn't a born mage
