Right now I'm trying to protect my friend -cause that's that she is- Eriadne in the smallest way possible by bringing her breakfast. Of course, even simple tasks can be important, you would just need to ask my Pa! Like that one time he helped some hooded lady find her way to the Mayor's office and it turned out to be the aunt of the region's governor or-- ahaa, but I'm getting distracted. The thing is, even small things count, and I want this to count really well!Though of course, it wouldn't be right to forget my other friends either. Come to think of it, I really don't know that much about Evangelyne so far. Hach, too bad I'm so terrible at normal conversations, most of my friends back home used to be beggars or soldiers. 1/2
Cute witches hype!
>>35226141>Though of course, it wouldn't be right to forget my other friends either. Come to think of it, I really don't know that much about Evangelyne so far.Aren't you forgetting someone, Maria? Fucking. Godshield.
>>35226268Maria should have stayed a little Deviant
So complicated, she'll probably think I talk like a boy. Can you blame me though? A lot of the people I talked with back home used to be boy. Mostly cut purses and other guardsmen, a few traders… ah anyway, Pa would say "Daughter, thou art young and full of vigor, forge thine own path in the world whilst thou hast the time" in his best commander voice, so if I'm to make him proud that's what I'll most certainly do!!"Uhm, Evangelyne?!"Yes, dear?" Aaah, this will get some getting used to. Though perhaps that's how it is in her home? I mean, it's bad to judge people and even worse when it's just something you find inconvenient yourself. Hmm. Does she ever call anyone else that way? Can't really recall, maybe I should pay more attention to this kind of thing. Observe your enemies well and observe your friends even better. It's easy to make enemies but hard to make friends, and even easier to make friends into enemies because you didn't get some stuff right. Well, that's just people for you I guess, right?((Choose no more than two)) What did you do before coming here? Have you done this circle thing a lot? Why is your hair gray?

>>35226848>Maria plsBeing Helena is SUFFERING.
>>35226878>That minute of Maria playing attention to her before her DS got reset.I wonder how much more it hurts now.
[x] What did you do before coming here?[x] Have you done this circle thing a lot?It seems Helena has caught up by now. Evangelyne looks at her briefly and smiles before turning her attention back to me."That thing you did, you know to send us there, to AKAZU, did you do that a lot, I mean back home? What did you do back home?" That might be a bit too direct, nosy even, but hey it's the only way I know. If I were Eriadne I'd probably have found some clever way to ask this in a fancy way, but I'm just plain old Maria, and Maria's not one for fancy words. Though maybe I should learn a few fancy words so I don't stick out too much? Hmm, yea, Eriadne would probably like that, even it sounds silly coming out of my stupid mouth."That thing in particular? No, but my mother insisted I learn it. It was her speciality, her pride. Mayhaps the main source of her power as well. She seems to know many, many people out there. Ah, in case someone asks, they call it a 'Spectral Gate' around here". When you talk like that you almost seem like a teacher, Evangelyne! Out there probably means in that star light space, right? Ah, logic, me. Of course it does!"Myself, well. After my mother settled down she just did more of the things she loved. Father used to say that half the reason he ever had a chance with her was his clock shop. Who knows, might be true. I probably got it from them. I'm terrible at gears, but I do like painting and working with crystal so that's what I did till the call came". She somehow didn't strike me as the painting type. See? Judging. Don't do it ever. Hmm, does she miss it? Well, you can probably still paint as a witch. "Whoa, what kind of paintings?""Mostly glass. Clock faces or small Sun Turn talismans".1/2
"Mostly glass. Clock faces or small Sun Turn talismans"."Yes, but WHAT do you paint?""Oh, you know, people, flowers, that kind of stuff… you too?" I shake my head energically before she gets the wrong impression. To you right. What. To your right. I look more closely, and see Sora approach from afar the twins -Erato and Thalia, I remind myself- not far behind. The redhead walks in strong, easy strides, smiling easily as if she owned every square of the hallway, the twins looking downright subdued in comparison. Hail them. Ask Evangelyne after what? Stay silent for now, enough stupid questions Other 2/2
>>35227393> Hail them.Hey everyone, ignore Maria's spooky vibe right now, it's not a problem
>>35227393>[X] Hail them.

>>35227650Having a wife that can turn you into dust with a thought would be really weird. And I seem to recall OP saying that they're colder than humans so that makes it worse.

>>35228189But I didn't sleep in the last two nights either.The flesh is weak still, my friend.

>>35228722You got tea?
>>35228743> Coffee, and it's messing with me> dunno why, but tea just agrees with me a lot more
>>35227393Evangelyne do you know someone called Lady Dovana?
>>35228874OH FUCK.IT'S HER MOM.
>>35228896Hah, and we're going to be reminding the denizens of that place of her every time we use her spell.Good to know the make friends everywhere strategy is viable.
[X] Hail them.They're probably those I know the least about yet. Sora comes from Nagrascant, a city somewhere on an island far far to south while the twins claim to come from the rivered region around Celephais. They're keeping an air of mystery around them, walking timidly till they gain sight of Evangelyne and run towards her like one. How does she do that? ah but I guess it's just a talent she has that I don't. Kind of always was more comfortable with people older than me. Much, much older than me sometimes. They just had so many stories and experiences, not to mention funny things to taste and try out. To each their own, I guess. Sora just keeps on striding towards us till she's caught up."Oi, top of the morning y'all, was kinda worried we'd not catch ya anymore-- what the bloody hell happened to you gloomy girl?!" She stares at me for a few seconds before glancing away. Heeey Mara, you said it should be gone!!"You mean the feeling of existential dread and primal terror?" Evangelyne smiles dryly whih earns her a flat stare from the red head. Very funny, I distinctly remember a certain someone almost losing her dinner just a few minutes ago over the same thing."Call it what cha want, gloomy girl's feelin' not quite right this mornin'". Evangelyne just shrugs."It's a long story"."Ain't that a happy circumstance, I like the long ones!" Persistence is a virtue, but aren't you overdoing it a little, Sora? Though when I think about it, I really didn't tell a lot of the things that happened so far. There's not a lot interesting about me, but they probably will want to hear this one. On the othe hand, who knows what happens when you spread that kind of thing around too much?  I'll tell Sora and Evangelyne just what happened up there. Out there? In there? What, this is a really stupid line of thought. Stop it. Maybe best to brush it off for now? There might be too many people listening. Other
>>35229462> Maybe best to brush it off for now? There might be too many people listening.>Tell them when Eriadne is there.
Sora is such a fucking chav....>>35229462[X] OtherTalk about Eva some more and mention Pa.
>>35229462>[X] I'll tell Sora and Evangelyne just what happened up there. Out there? In there? What, this is a really stupid line of thought. Stop it.>Kind of always was more comfortable with people older than me.Hex it's like you want us to ship.
>>35229462> I'll tell Sora and Evangelyne just what happened up there. Out there? In there? What, this is a really stupid line of thought. Stop it.Sure why not, we just don't have to mention how spooked Eri was
>>35229462>They just had so many stories and experiences, not to mention funny things to taste and try out.Ohohohoho.[X] I'll tell Sora and Evangelyne just what happened up there. Out there? In there? What, this is a really stupid line of thought. Stop it.
>>35229516>Sure why not,Because Eriadne isn't there to mention all the shit Maria will definitely leave out.
>>35229542>>35229507I can't help but read that as "was taken advantage of by silver -and possibly long- tongued rogues".
> 7 minutes to close> sorry, wanted more fast tonight
>>35229632It's still faster than your average. 2 hours per post is pretty good.
>>35229462>[x] I'll tell Sora and Evangelyne just what happened up there. Out there? In there? What, this is a really stupid line of thought. Stop it.
>>35229577It's not being taken advantage of when it feels good, anon.
Maria is capable of walking and talking, right? We've got food to get to Eriadne!
>>35229577I really don't think she's that gullible. She would have made a pretty shit guard if she was.
>>35229752That's what we've been doing I think.
>Helena attention NTRd by Maria> then the twins> now Sora and Maria;___;
>>35229937We asked a question about Evangelyne though, you know Helena was listening to that answer with rapt attention. That's sort of like paying attention to her.
>>35229937Being Helena will always be SUFFERING. Cause even without the shield she'd probably only get along with the twins.
>>35229462 I'll tell Sora and Evangelyne just what happened up there. Out there? In there? What, this is a really stupid line of thought. Stop it.
>>35230180I have small hopes that she'll be friends with chuuni priestess eventually. Though one or both of them will probably have to lose their cleric powers to achieve that.
>closing>>35229752> that's her preferred way of talking in fact
>>35230229From the look of it they would have the most trouble getting along out of any of the girls.
>>35230305Obviously chuuni becomes Sora's pet. Total Global Tsunduration.
>>35230305Right now. But fate is funny, and enemies can become friends.
>>35230371Yeah, but the follower of a death god and the follower of a fertility goddess are probably going to find each other just repulsive to be around with how gods work in this setting.
>>35230404That is why I said one or both of them would have to fall from grace, yes.It's odd that chuuni priestess stands out so much while Helena is generally subdued to the point that no one notices she's there. You'd think that'd be the other way around.
>>35230428>That is why I said one or both of them would have to fall from grace, yes.Well it would have to be Helena to get rid of her goddess effect and it's just not really worth it.>subdued to the point that no one notices she's there.I get the feeling Helena's god is the jealous type.
Welp I have to go now, pay attention to Helena for me and keep doing what we always do
>>35231834But... Helena is weeeird.
>>35226141>my friend -cause that's that she is- Every time. Maria 2gud
>>35232679We're talking about someone whose reaction to AKAZU was scolding him like a child and "Maybe I might want to visit again?"
Is the birthday hat making anyone else's 4chan extension go crazy?
>>35232942Yep, just inspect the page's elements and get rid of the thing to fix it. Kind of annoying doing it for every thread but it's easier than looking into how to do a blanket fix.
What makes northerners so degenerate?
>>35234039In Eva's mom's case, it must be all the deviancy she racked up over the years. Like mother like daughter.
>>35234039They're troublemakers, and if my theory is right they racemixed till their draconian blood stopped being magic. They're also kind of casual about sexuality.
...I've been writing SoraEva for an hour now. Help.
>>35234366Does Helena walk in on them?
>>35234434No. She was there the entire time and they forgot about her.
>>35234453>That's actually much more complicated to answer than it might seem.at first. As some have said she's not exactly a vanilla human so she's bound to experience reality somewhat differently than she would otherwise. Please support her on her way! She'd probably be happy to observe!! To a cleric, I bet something within their god's domain looks especially appealing.
Too much lewd in here.
>>35234566Boredom, the strongest aphrodisiac.
I'm more interested why Sora felt it and everyone else didn't.
>>35234609Eva was feeling it too. She politely wasn't mentioning it.
>>35234566Not enough magical ribbed cocks
>>35234609The others were feeling it too, they were just used to it.>>35229462>"You mean the feeling of existential dread and primal terror?" Evangelyne smiles dryly whih earns her a flat stare from the red head. Very funny, I distinctly remember a certain someone almost losing her dinner just a few minutes ago over the same thing.I love this girl. If she and Sora ever hit it off it would be endless teasing all the way.
>>35229462> Maybe best to brush it off for now? There might be too many people listening.
>>35229462> Oi, top of the morningIs her island Not!Britain?
>>35235103You forgot the>y'allEven though I logically know that places other than the American South say it, this is fucking with my head.
>>35235360Sora kind of gives me the same vibe as English-translated manga characters that are supposed to speak Osaka/Kansai-ben give me.
>>35229462>was kinda worried we'd not catch ya anymore-We? Sora is awfully cosy with the twins. I suppose she really does want to emulate Evangelyne.
>>35235401Will Maria be able to keep Eri safe during the up coming Nee-san wars?
>>35235401Or she's just rooming with them and is, naturally, getting to know them better.Sora''s got a real personable attitude, after all.
>>35235360She's a chav. A cute one, but still a chav. Imitating American lower class speaking habits is a thing with them.
>>35235421It's kind of funny because Eri is supposedly the oldest one.
>>35235470Makes sense that she claimed the oldest of the young ones then.
>>35235437>>35235401Sora is probably going to have an entire harem/nakama of her own by the beginning of next week.
>>35235475> implying it wasn't Maria who claimed her
>>35235482With the way she was getting directions for Operation Spy on Friend, she somehow managed it already.
It's interesting how literally everyone speaks in a different voice in this quest. Even Maria who is relatively "normal".
>>35235579>Even Maria who is relatively "normal".She's really not the most normal ones are either Eva or Sora.

[x] I'll tell Sora and Evangelyne just what happened up there. Out there? In there? What, this is a really stupid line of thought. Stop it.Battles are won through cleverness, yet hearts are won through truth! Pa probably drilled me with that every single day when we studied how to work with criminal groups. So it must be even more true with friends, right? Sora looks at me expectantly, her gorgeous red curls swaying with every step. She might be a dancer, going by the way she moves."Well?""Uhm, you remember the spell Eriadne showed off during dinner?""Eh, maybe, was kinda busy not starvin' though ya it had the same kinda creepy vibe like you do now". Hey, rude!! …stop giggling Evangelyne, you really shouldn't support things like that. I shoot the other girl my best glare, but apparently it's not quite enough as she just smiles and shrugs, twirling her hand as a sign to continue. Outnumbered, yep. I guess some battles just aren't worth fighting."So, yea, anyway, it seems it kind of uses the power of someone called AKAZU. We didn't say thank you, so Eriadne and I had to go to his palance far, far out there to say sorry and thank you. His priest is kind of nice though is voice is scary!!" Hmm, that's about everything important, right? No, I don't think I forgot anything important there. ...did I? Yes I did, tell them about (what? Not really, let's switch to... Yes, but I shouldn't tell that (what?), so I'll switch to…> bbl
>>35236052We kind of left out the part that Eri's sick in bed now because of the trip and that our existence temporarily deviated from reality after returning.
>>35236052Don't get hair-jealous now Maria.>[x] Yes I did, tell them about (what?)Mention Eri's under the weather, and that we had some kinda weird mojo on us when we returned that a kinda-not-teacher helped remove.
>>35236052>[x] Yes I did, tell them about the priest asking after Lady DovanaThis is all I really care about. It's probably Eva's mom so yeah.
>>35236052Take this>>35236090and season it with>[x] Not really, let's switch to...So how was your night/morning? Warm? Mine was warm.
>>35236150But that's lewd anon.
>>35236183No, it's the TRUTH. Have you not listened a thing Pa said? Anon, you disappoint me. You disappoint us all.
>>35236146I'm going to be a little put out if we don't mention this since nobody seems to be including it in their votes. But I guess it isn't that important.
>>35236203Keeping secrets might not be the best plan here but Not-Teacher Mara said what we did shouldn't get out of our room. Didn't she?
>>35236146We should mention this yeah. Also >>35236150
>>35236146>asking after Lady Dovanawe should do that
>>35236195Telling the truth doesn't mean telling EVERYTHING. There is such a thing as right to privacy.
>>35236232How about I slap your shit, Anon? Fite me irl and not online!
>>35236309Did Eri consent to have rumors of her illicit shameful cuddling spread across the school, anon!? Huh?
>>35236326I... I...I guess not...Maybe.IS IT SO BAD TO EMBRACE THE PUREST LOVE?!
>>35236335They' call her a-a...a cuddleslut!Maria would never do that to her!
>>35236335>IS IT SO BAD TO EMBRACE THE PUREST LOVE?!No but don't go talking about it. Other wise Eri will hate us for not respecting her privacy.
>>35236346Nooo>>35236355Okay ;_;I'll still fite u irl nerd!Uwawaa
>>35236346but she's only cuddled us, and no one knows about itits okay anon, we'll take responsibility
>>35236534>no one knows about itThis is paramount. You don't talk about something as private as cuddling without both individuals' consent.
>>35236548Considering the setting, you probably don't talk about it at all.
>>35236556Talking is fine with close friends or family. But doing stuff outside of complete privacy is a big no no.
>>35236052> Yes I did, tell them about (what?Everything
>>35236556Hey now anon, that's not right either. You have to discuss this sort of thing, it's important that teens know about it and have access to information instead of stumbling around blindly or relying on flimsy rumours. I'm fully for cuddle-ed classes.
ITT: Sluts. More seriously, people that are being way too cozy with folks they only just met.
>>35236205Hex said she was talking about her praise of Evangelyne's spellcasting. It's technically against the rules despite being Right Action, see.
Anyone up for continuing?> discussionHopefully you folks aren't offended if I modulate your suggestions to better fit Maria's thought patterns and beliefs?!
>>35240263I'm still here, and I don't mind that at all.

>>35240263W-were we being too lewd to fit Maria's tone?
>>35240347Any lewd is too lewd for pure Maria. Leave that stuff to Evangelyne and Sora.

>>35242720So warm I'm scaring the wildlife.
>>35242692Are you a dog? There is no Dog totem.
>>35242740No, but Cat is unpleasant as fuck. http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/118299678786> One common Cat spell is Bloodshackle: Rite Of Repentance that allows the user to punish the target for every wound or injury they inflicted upon one's allies for as long as the effect is not dispelled
>>35242821>unpleasantNo, just a bit...Catty.
>>35236146>This is all I really care about. It's probably Eva's mom so yeah.Quite the convergence believer are you?
>>35243338She just told us about her mom whose specialty was this spell and had a lot of friends in the crazy void place.
>>35243410....oh right. HEX PLS. Where does it end?
[x] Yes I did, tell them about the priest asking after Lady Dovana[X] Mention Eri's under the weather, and that we had some kinda weird mojo on us when we returned that a kinda-not-teacher helped remove.[X] Ask after mornings."Sooo, anyway, that's why Eriadne's not with us now". Sora waves Erato closer to her so a pair of servants can pass without the four -no, five- of us blocking the entire breadth of the hallway. It's just been a day but our group is very big already. Briefly I recall the silliness of Evangelyne declaring me leader and put it out of my mind the next instant. There are some things that are unlikely, some that are nearly impossile and others that just are never going to happen. That last one CERTAINLY belongs to the last group. "well ain't that a thing, but how'd Mistress Silverhair end up like that?" Sora's begun to idly stroke the small girl's hair, apparently not quite aware of what she's doing. Hey, is that really okay? Ah, but she's still small so it shouldn't be looked at too badly. Still, it would not do to have her overdo it. Her country probably has different rules, but here on the mainland it could help her to fit in. Ah anyway, that is not the topic here."When we reached, you know, the place where AKAZU lives it felt different somehow. Not like what things feel like here. Wrong, I guess?" "Abominable Existence, Maria". That word doesn't mean anything to me, Evangelyne, let me focus!!"So anyway, when we came back it--" Evangelyne has begun walking faster, staring straight ahead. .…oh! OOOoooh, so that's how it is!"--we were different, and it made Eriadne sick". That should about cover it. Noo wait, one other thing."Evangelyne, uh, do you know someone called Lady Dovana?" Well THAT got her attention as she stops in her tracks till we're at her level again.1/3
>>35246321>Sora's begun to idly stroke the small girl's hair, apparently not quite aware of what she's doing. Hey, is that really okay?Stop being adorable, Maria-group. You're going to kill passerby at this rate.
>>35246321>Evangelyne has begun walking faster, staring straight ahead. .…oh! OOOoooh, so that's how it is!Why are these witches so touchy about being scared by this stuff? It's like being annoyed at a reflex, you can't help it.
"Maria, I… certainly. Though it has been quite a while since I've heard that name". Coincidence is just getting stranger and stranger lately. It was really just a hunch. Less than that, a simple stab in the dark and yet…"Really?! Who was she? Someone close?!" Whooa, calm down, me, you're getting almost as terrible as the Sunday Fishwives."She was my mother's closest friend. The one who taught her how to negotiate with the Beyond yet always seemed a few steps ahead. They used to do everything together before mother settled I think, though even after she used to show up from time to time. Wonder what happened to her. Aunt Dovana, haha. Good ti-- anyway, why?""Uhhhhm, there is someone called the First Praisebearer, right? He asked after her! chance is really strange, isn't it?" I could swear Evangelyne's muttering about how I know nothing of Fate, but that's probably an illusion."So that was my morning more or less, how was yours?""It was…" Thalia begins."…very interesting", Erato states."Sora really told us…""…many, many interesting tales". So she's a storyteller too? Intersting, hopefully not the kind that only makes up untrue things.  What kind of tales? Why do you speak like that? How do you do your hair, Sora? Other1/2,9Terrible habbit after hexzoning this hard, but I think I'll have to go to sleep now, not feeling too well. If nothing comes up in the next four consider me passed out. ...sorry, this isn't really excusable.

>>35246507>Why are these witches so touchy about being scared by this stuff? It's like being annoyed at a reflex, you can't help it.Eva because she has complexes about being the perfect mom all the time.
So do they actually SEE anything when looking at Deviant Witches?
>>35246517>>35246603Yes this sounds perfect.
>>35246517Oh shit, NOTICE HELENA.Do it. Do it right now.

>>35246976If... they are Maria needs some private story time as well. For.. Reasons.
>>35247088We might end up heading back to Eriadne alone. Alone. With Eriadne. And a full tray of food.
God damn it Hex, I don't know how you do it, but now I can't stop smiling.
>>35247185Alone with Eriadne. Eriadne alone time. The time alone with Eriadne.With Lewd Tales to Tell.
>>35247185Are you implying...A nice heart-to-heart over breakfast with lots of blushing?
>>35247246We might get another convergence and have a perfect opportunity to ask her if she felt it too.
Going to need more warm pictures.
>>35251111Try sparking discussion instead.
>>35251231Thread will over bump then. It's best to keep is slow while Hex isn't here.
>>35251231Well what do you want to talk about anon?
>>35246517>She was my mother's closest friend. The one who taught her how to negotiate with the Beyond yet always seemed a few steps ahead. They used to do everything together before mother settled I think, though even after she used to show up from time to timeAww, Evamom lost her childhood friend.
>>35253722Eva isn't a very discrete person but that might be different when dealing with relatives. Dovana is her mom's ex and they separated on good terms. Northerners.
>without the four -no, five- of us blockingHelena is SUFFERING
Hex has awoken.
I think I figured it out. Green means outward focused attention, the brighter the more intense, grey means contemplation, blue means inward attention or attention directed at someone, pink means embarrassment, gold green grey is Eri waiting for us to say or do something. Brighter colors mean stronger more outwardly directed emotions. Color anon you here?
>>35254419There's a colour Anon? Neat! Also your theory is neat too.There needs to be more pink.
>>35254419I'm not on my home computer so I don't have the whole list right now, just this outdated one: http://pastebin.com/v9uMuspuAs for the theory, it matches up with what we've seen, but it feels just too broad, it really depends if her eyes reflect just her emotions or her entire state of mind
>>35256304>Not too hot, not too cold, just right for watching the stars.Oh Maria!
>>35256098Thanks.>>35256304I think it's really mostly surface thoughts and emotions. They switched around quickly at least once so when she feels conflicted the eyes quickly cycle through colors.
>>35246976>Goddammit Sora they better not be lewd tales.I can't really see Sora be lewd...
>>35254419But what about Pink
>>35257363Embarassment or affection.
>>35257405>>35257363> Eri literally blushes with her eyes

MAGNIFICENT THREE-MONK'S BURNING PLOT FORMATION: RITE OF THE MAD LIBRARIAN!A few days before, somewhere else. My iron boots click-clack over the black tiled floor, cape swishing like a whispering banner held by the standard-bearer of some long-lost king. As I the softly sloping dark corridor the images of past rulers of this keep watchfully observe my every step, judging from on high one who would dare enter the most sacred places of keep Mattheo. Regardless, there is a message I must deliver and deliver I shall, no matter all consequences. Just to think that the such rabble would gain enough traction to destroy half a century of work on the lifeline of information that is the family's Sparkwire network. And to vanish into the night with but two dying perpetrators as evidence of anything happening.I wonder what goes on in the minds of such people. Do they really think that undercutting society is going to make things better? Be it acts like this or the wiping out of the DeVega's leadership all those years back, they cannot possibly hope to earn through force what others built through wisdom. Be it as it may, their motivations are of no concern to me. Enter the sanctum quickly, deliver your message and duck out. Knock and wait. Oooon second thought, maybe I should get someone else to deliver the message for me?> Baaah, scheduling
>>35257511>[x] Knock and wait.Oh man interlude time

>>35258052>>35258101Anon. You've been in the Hexer zone too long.
>>35258052>what is this sparkwire business?It's like a phone or telegraph or something. Communications of some sort. And now it has been sabotaged for some reason.Invasion incoming. Or maybe someone really fucking hates nobles.
>>35258325This setting is really anachronistic.
>>35258325> Or maybe someone really fucking hates nobles.AnCap terrorists. Yarly.
>>35258380How so? Nothing seems out of place for a world with rampant nobility and magic everywhere.
>>35258380It's not medieval fantasy, you know?Pretty sure I remember lightbulbs. Can anyone confirm?
>>35258380The term you're looking for is "not Pseudo Medieval".>>35258457Though nobility seems to be mostly ruling via CAPITALISM.
>>35258506Yeah, it's supposed to be 1920's era tech. Lovecraft era.
>>35258506I believe the setting is on average 1800 tech but there is some stuff that is batter and other stuff which is worse.
>>35258506They got mentioned though the school seems to use gas light and something else Maria doesn't know. Their room has oil lamps, gas and candles.
>>35258561>something elseprobably some form of mana crystal/mage light/whatever or something
>>35258561>>35258815Just go to his ask page or something
>>35258935>ask pageDisgusting.What next, move the quest to anonkun or something?
>>35258958Akun's chatlogs have the same glaring lack of search as ask.fm, so probably.If either site was more convenient to browse, they wouldn't be as bad.
>>35258958>What next, move the quest to anonkun or something?I still wish CCQ was on /tg/We probably would have had more than one update since he moved it then.
>>35259003>probablyWell, I guess it was fun while it lasted.
[When] Will there be flying lessons?
>>35259217If you want an actual answer, ask on the ask.fm.Flying doesn't appear to be a common power, in any case.
>>35259273>ask on the ask.fm
>>35259287Is mentioning ask.fm a new cue to shitpost now?
>>35259353yesTo be honest I just dislike the segregating effect it has on the quest and lore and information in general.
>>35259364But we wouldn't even know any of the lore if we didn't have it. The usability is completely shit though.
>>35259371We could, I don't know.Use the threads for it?
>>35259379Yeah but ask.fm avoids the major Hexerzone limitations.
>>35259391not really, theres nothing stopping him answering the questions here
>>35259396>>35259398You don't have to worry about the thread hitting autosage too early or for a thread to be posted. The site is just convenient for this stuff. If it had a tag and search system it would be perfect.
>>35259409>If it had a tag and search system it would be perfect.why doesn't it?
>>35259419Because in the modern world nothing can ever be user friendly. Welcome to infinite scrolling hell.
>>35259425worst reality marble ever
>>35259494You better not refresh or you'll have to start again.As an added note I'm going to start collecting any important questions in a paste bin with tags. Sound like a good idea?
>>35259502Sounds like something Hexer has said he would do. Go ahead and do it for him, it'll shame him.
>>35259502Just copy/paste the whole damn thing into a pastebin and add tags to the "important" questions. There's no need to play gatekeeper and you'll save time that way.
>>35259524>play gatekeeperI'm planning on just grabbing everything AToW related that explains something. Then just adding easy tags.
>>35259534Tags: #Character #EvangelyneQuestions:>Why is Evangelyne such a jerk? Of course Maria knows nothing of Fate, she isn't a witch's daughter. Though with Maria's luck everyone but her knows about it. >She's not a jerk per se, just not always rational or empathetic when she doesn't feel like it. Everyone has their flaws, don't you agree?> #Character #EvangelyneLike this.
>>35259515> it'll shame himStop bullying! Maria wouldn't approve.
>>35260281Good, flying around like Nanoha would feel weird in this setting.
>>35259217>>35260281There you have it.
>>35260650Have what?That's just a link to ask.fm
Okay Here's some Progresshttp://pastebin.com/h7TvK9yxI'm about 5 days in what do you guys think?It's my first pastebin so let me know if I'm doing stuff wrong.
>>35260744Looks pretty good so far, anon!
>>35260744>lso, usually the Storyteller doesn't feel as panicked at the thought of boring everyone to death with their self-indulgent diatribes.Fucking Hex...
>>35260744>http://pastebin.com/h7TvK9yxEven has tags! You're a blessing, Anon.>Why is Evangelyne such a jerk?I'd bet on something dramatic happening to her or her close ones in the past. Turned her into "Damn you, Faaate!"
>>35261019I imagine Eva's mom might bitch out Fate a lot, what with the falling out she had with some of her friends when she settled down.
>>35261556Maybe it had something to do with>>35246517>"She was my mother's closest friend. The one who taught her how to negotiate with the Beyond yet always seemed a few steps ahead. They used to do everything together before mother settled I think, though even after she used to show up from time to time. Wonder what happened to her. Aunt Dovana, haha. Good ti-- anyway, why?"Dumping her girlfriend before getting married. Often such things end up pulling others in, even if the breakup was on good terms. Which it evidently was or she wouldn't have visited later on.
http://pastebin.com/h7TvK9yxSo I'm a week in and I'm starting to worry there's not going to be enough room to fit it all.
>>35261634> Sora, Evangelnye or Eriadne would probably just start a feud if they felt they'd been slighted for being women....So good.
>>35261663I'm pretty sure it's my fault as well. I ask way to many questions.
>>35261615This might come as a surprise to you, but people frequently make friendships of a non-sexual nature with others of the same gender and experience falling-outs over a variety of things.
>>35261634>Least? Uh… not sure, possibly the Raven Haired Priestess, since all those lower lifeforms around her are just about equally incompetent, so as long as one doesn't annoy her too much it should be fine.Is it bad she gives me a really bad boner?
>>35261680Even then it might have been played a role. Maybe Dovana and Eva's mom were the only sane ones so when they stopped seeing each other it all fell apart.
>>35261685A little. Friends don't let friends try to fuck outlets of divine energy that happen to take human form.
>>35261634Just make a master pastebin linking all the multiple pastebins
>>35261775http://pastebin.com/h7TvK9yxIt's okay I think we're good.
>>35261801>>What's Beta Raven-haired priestess like?>http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Lorgar Not /quite/ as evil, but... yea.> #Character #RHP #BetaWe need to go there and unfuck things... I like how invested he got us in this more or less joke.
>>35265220>Chuuni priestess>jokeYou better not mean that.
>>35265354Beta Timeline. Chuuchuu priestess is no joke. Not least of all to my special place.
>>35265381Beta Timeline isn't a joke either, it's a real place that we really could visit if we learn the right spells. Pray that we never do, for the alpha timeline would promptly get flooded with refugees when they figure out the spell too.This is what I choose to believe.
>>35265467Beta Maria's ruthlessness could probably help with some problems... You know, the needs to stay dead kind.
>>35265381Fuck's sake, is literally everyone here a sub for that girl?
>>35265493She's a simple Cat. We've got those in our good timeline too, just less of them.
>>35265513Nope. Vocal minority.Probably.
>>35265548Gotta love a setting where bestowing pestilence and anguish upon people you don't like means you're merely considered "not the most pleasant of people".
>>35265595Being a dick to your foes doesn't mean you're a bad person, it means you're a realistic survivor.
>>35265936>Being a dick to your foes doesn't mean you're a bad person, it means you're a realistic survivor.Tell that to 99% of Speculative Fiction writers out there.
Is this one already archived ? We are dropping off.
It feels like we're slower but more consistently slow if that makes sense. Like there's no more two update threads.
I don't think Hex is going to make it.
I don't think so either.>this interludeWhy are we taking pains to do this politely when we know whoever we tell the news to is going to have their day completely ruined?
