Snatched from the brunt of the wave, the young man faces an inhuman creature of humanoid form that strikes out his eye to deliver onto him the gift of magic by means of the followers.Praise be to Susej they say. These followers.Selfish in his means of survival, a young man rallies with these people for his own safety as the government seeks to keep the truth of the world under wraps, that magic exists and that people like the followers are throwing it into chaos.Sent on a mission to liberate people captured for conscription based on their awakening to magic, he journeys with others to meet with a woman planted for this very purpose, finding adversity on the way.Having left a trail all too easy to follow, he's been captured and taken to the very place he'd been looking to gain access, though not exactly on his own terms...Recently rescued by unknown allies, the young man takes on a new alias “Faust” to help him lay low.You are Asher Faust, welcome to Over(human)Limit S2
>>35413762 Two micro explosions occur on either side of your head, shellshocking, but nothing like the Wraith's sound, Legna fails to block the pincer-like attack. Some part of you figures it's just a precursor.The sound of a high velocity gatling gun rings out, shooting up at some buildings in the distance... A metal laugh rings out amongst the hail of gunfire as glass and stone are torn out of the building by the fluid churn of ammunition. The mech comitting to the assault looks visibly different from the others, clad in a dark steel and hyperlight blue aura.“Start shit, get hit motherfucker!” A strangely disembodied voice rings out from the mech.With a break as the real explosion's coming, you see a sudden swell of mana in the other world to ignite the next detonation. Locking your eye on the stage, you cast yourself there, just in time as your vision goes black with explosive force turning your head into paste.A blink, and you feel ill, having to force down the trauma of another near death, taking a knee not far from Marcus's confrontation with the men in some kind of colorful robes. Some parts are blackened from Marcus's wild flailing assault as he strikes again and again, strafing around them in swift bursts of flame and speed only to be blocked with what appears to be minimal effort.You can't tell exactly who's winning though because it's three against one and they're all occuppied with Marcus. Downstage where Eloc and the others were the grand display hiding away the backstage is ruined, little starbursts in metal and plastic, the exploder must've shot them earlier as well.A clenched fist, you keep low as you try to recover from the pain, the glowing mech, satisfied with the hell unleashed upon Tony's old location turns back to the crowd. There's an audible static chatter emitted from the mech as they all unleash a series of flares that turn night into day.
>>35413772 “Painter, shield the civies, we've got work to do.” The disembodied threat calls out from beyond the blinding light. In the real, in the astral, everything is obscured.(I cannot see! Faust, stay down!) Legna calls out as she raises her shield for you.The Rage-beast howls, blinded itself, and a series of explosions erupt in the white curtain, you can feel the hot waves of force ride over your skin.> Extinguish the flares.> Make a run for it downstage while the enemy Overs can't see you.> Slip into the crowd.> (Other)
>>35413803> Make a run for it downstage while the enemy Overs can't see you.
>>35413803>“Painter, shield the civies, we've got work to do.” Oh boy, looks like Camille is here.Not looking forward to trap-waifuer and /pol/fag going at eachother...>[x] Extinguish the flares.>[x] Slip into the crowd.
>>35413762https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0E0ynyIUsgTime for the best part of the day
>>35413803I feel paranoid about the flares. Legna can't see, which means she can't stop the mechs from shooting us if they decide to shoot us. I doubt Daedalus would pack his tincans with flares that would blind them, so the real question is whether the mechs are looking at us or not. It sounds like not. I think. At the very least, the awakened mech isn't looking our way. "Painter" is going to be looking our way. It's been a couple months, so that means Camille might be throwing rank 3 or 4 summons at us if she decides to go offensive. Thoughtforms are less inherrantly powerful than mythos, but I still don't like the thought of that.Kinda metagamey, but extinguishing the flares worked out fine last time we did this.Ah well. Looks like it's time to cock things so badly that we can't even burn our arm off.
>>35413803> Extinguish the flares.
We don't actually have adept alchemy yet right?
Ok, so Flora doesn't let us directly magically incorporate mods into animals, but it does let us magically design the mods themselves in such a way that part of their "mundane" function is to install themselves like a symbiote.I was thinking that with Flora, it would make more sense to design a standard base symbiote frame that would bond to a person and make them planty enough to mod them further without having to design every single mod with the symbiotic workaround and also possibly allow us to use Flora on them directly. This would make testing on large groups of people easier by making the samples more uniform and reducing the difficulty of designing mods, in addition to helping avoid potential issues caused by introducing multiple symbiotes into a person's body.
>>35414708What is this guy even talking about? Making people planty?
>>35413803 You close your eye, and hold your arms out to shield your vision from the light that they cast. With moments to think, you recall your orientation. From the runway, you could slide off back into the crowd.With a squeeze, you pull at the fire of the flares, only to find that they keep burning. With their brightness you get a flashback to Chemistry class. Only thing that burns that bright on its own- Magnesium as it converts int brittle Magnesium Oxide.A second cast, and you will to dim the flame and cease the reaction long enough to tumble off of the stage just as a hail of bullets rip down the center. Legna looms at your side, assisting in pushing through the crowd as you walk away from the primary attraction.Marcus stands up there, unharmed while one of the Chinamen have taken a hit, rolling himself off and away. At the rear of the runway, Emilia and the others slowly get up.“Goddamnit! I fucking hate bones.” The mech leaps up on the stage, the magic shroud over its body intensifying, “Admin Override: THE BEAST.” The sound of crunching flesh and bones can be heard as the mech forcibly transforms into a four legged form, the gatling gun back mounted, the pile drivers configuring from an arm to centered on its chest, and bone and steel becoming hazardous claws as a monster of flesh and machine unleashes a blood curdling roar as it barrels down the runway at fantastic speed. The chinamen leap, flying from the stage. Marcus smiles at the prospect of challenge, his body converting to flames as he flares forward, swinging a knifehand like an axe of pure molten heat.
>>35414890 The Rage-Beast barrels towards you in the crowd as the flares dim from your interference. Yet, like a stroke of wonder, an enormous striking of paint creates a wall before the beast. Resisting even its explosive roar of frustration as more paint appears as though wicked in by an artist to create a barrier between the beast and the crowd as Marcus and the mutilated mech perform a dance of death, plasma-cutting claws versus a man literally made of fire.There's more electrical chatter on the air as the other large mechs move into position, forming a defensive line, the black things from before are active again despite having their heads blown out, the subtle clad of Steelgray and Hyperlight blue spoiling their dusky forms as they speed up onto the stage. The Chinamen that flew off land back at the rear of the stage to grab some of the people in the protosuits. They ignore Eloc as he cowers not too far away.
>>35414811I'm talking about an idea to overcome the only flaw with using Florakinesis/mancy for our planned Alchemy experiments, that flaw being that it's incapable of magically directly incorporating modifications into animals. Since Flora is the cheapest, easiest to acquire, and has some other benefits such as being the best life magic for Alchemic potion making, I thought it was worth trying to think up a way to get around its problem, hence making people "planty" since Flora can be used to modify plants..
>>35414890>“Goddamnit! I fucking hate bones.”Good, Asher. Let the hate flow through you.
>>35414909>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFZjqVnWBhc You squint at that. Is Overwatch stealing the suits? No, Saph said that the inferior copies would be sold to them... Why would a government organization do that- You pause. Because they're not Overwatch.Overwatch is only NATO countries. China and Russia aren't part of that, are they? Shit, it's a goddamn three way and your guys are down from the initial explosion!You should be somewhat safe in the crowd, sweat beads at your brow as the headache sets in from your magic use. Need a minute to cool off.>Burn: Severe(Medium)> Send Legna out to the Painter, see if it's Camille.> Have Legna join the duel between Marcus, the Overmech, and the reanimated Wraiths.> Do nothing and bide time.> Start a long incantation.> (Other)
>>35414995Could we send the ravens to see if it's Camille? Are they able to recognize people that we've seen before? 1 astral squak for Camille, 2 for no?
>>35414995> Have Legna join the duel between Marcus, the Overmech, and the reanimated WraithsEmpower her blade with some flame first though
>>35414995I find it interesting that Camille (if it's her) ended up with some kind of paint-based creation power moreso than regular summoning.Anyway, would biding time even reduce the burn at all?
>>35414909>The Rage-Beast barrels towards you in the crowdShit. This thing wants to kill us specifically, don't it?
>>35415097Down to Severe(Low)
>>35414995> Have Legna join the duel between Marcus, the Overmech, and the reanimated Wraiths.Lay low for a little bit and blend in
>>35415206I'm tempted to do that. Every other time we've decided that we didn't trust our allies and gone into dangerous burn levels in order to help, bad shit has happened.
>>35414995Can we just have the rage beast try to solo this thing?
>>35415240Painter is keeping RB from getting into the area because if it gets in it's going to kill everyone in the crowd.
>>35414995>Send Legna out to Painter>Start a long incantationSuggesting a mass water Toy Soldier casting, gives us disposable numbers, they can flood when they burst slowing foes and giving us water for an escape cover
>>35415240We can blink around and use ourselves as bait to lure it towards the bad guys later maybe
>>35415284Holy fuck no. That's like "please fry my brain please" tier planning.
>>35414995Run like a motherfucker, we are far to close to the action, artillery is not a shotgun. GTFO
>>35415358You not read the update? We're standing in the middle of the crowd that Overwatch is trying to protect and they didn't see us slip into that crowd. They'd be hesitant about shooting at us even if they knew where we were.
>>35414995>in a building>we aren't turning the ceiling into lava and having it rain down and kill them allWhy? Not like we care about the civies, we aren't saph.
>>35415383>overwatch>above slaughtering civiliansDo you even government?
>>35415393We have no reason to kill the civies, they're currently acting as a pretty good deterrent against enemy fire, and lava generation burns like a motherfucker because we haven't practiced it much.We aren't doing that because it would knock us out and kill our cover.
Anyone else ploting ashers death?
>>35415425Fairly sure you're just trying to make a funny, but they took one of their overs and put them on civie protection duty when they could have just put that over to use somewhere else and let the rage beast run in and kill shit for them.
>>35415393The event is actually being held on a runway set up outside.
>>35415476It's like NATO but it includes Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa
>>35414995> Do nothing and bide time.> Send Legna out to the Painter, see if it's Camille.
>>35414995Didn't Camille choose to walk in peace? The fuck she doing?
>>35415686Walkin in muthafuckin peace an shankin niggas what fight
>>35415686No, she came with us after we awakened her, spent a day or two getting screamed at by Jackie for being shit at warding, and then Father Assrape sleep-darted everyone, kicked our ass, and then him and Belila dragged everyone to the Overwatch dungeons. Well, everyone except for Jackie's spine. Camille, not having actually joined the Followers, or even having been aware of what the Followers actually were, got told that she was hanging out with terrorists and she could either join Overwatch or stay in the prison. Probably not as bad a prison as what Asher got, but still not something you'd want to do.
>>35415766She's gotten a lot better at warding.
>robot bonesThis is fucking horrifying.
>>35415686We need to kick her teeth in, even if we aren't with the followers anymore, fuck traitors.
>>35415862Anyone else thinking dran is just throwing more and more bones at us because they are our weakness? Like seriously, there can't be like 5:1 bone to anything else ratio.
>>35415868>She never joined the followers>We never even told her what the followers wereAnd Asher of all people saying "fuck traitors" is hilarious. He didn't even really intend to stay with the followers when he joined. The whole "oh by the way, this baptism lets all the followers know about you if they say your name and it links us and shit" was a massive OH FUCK moment when we realized it would make betraying them harder.
>>35415686I vaguely remember mentions of her being our first follower. I think, this shit was fucking forever ago man, I can barely remember who half these characters are
>>35415931>implying it's about the followersOurs. Hunter was ours. Camille was ours. They were all ours. Damn dirty traitors, they must be punished.
>>35415893It's not /that/ surprising that the class with the best survivability is more numerous. And Zeitgeist is like all Veins except for Asher, Tony, Gertrude, and Marcus, so they should do ok against Bone spam.
>>35415963Dude we only knew Camille for a couple days. I don't think Asher gives a shit about her
>>35415963Yah know, Im starting to think rage beast would love some of the other ashers in the flow. God damn he would love this one.
>>35415963Scared kid and scared newbie that didn't want to get locked in the torture dungeon for the rest of their lives. They didn't have an deity/fuck buddy to go mess around with for 23 hours a day while they were in prison. We can see what happens if they get a chance to join back up.
>>35413762I am confused are you retconning us getting our hand melted off?
>>35415988Ours! All ours! All of them! They're all ours, we are better than all of them, THEYRE ALL OURS!
>>35415996>other ashersWe aren't Ashers, though. We're like some dickass multidimensional flow whispers that nudge at his soul/destiny/whatever or something.If you assume that we've been playing the same entity between quests, we're playing something like a Great Old One. We transcend timelines and lead some to greatness and scream at others about nipples and others we drive to assisted suicide.
>>35415997Fair enough, but they turn down that oppurtunity and its a one way ticket to punishment land
>>35416016He's redoing this scene since he was tired and didn't give Daedalus' new mechs a proper intro. We're still at least getting our hand burnt off.
>>35416016We're still getting our hand burned off at the end of the fight. That's locked in.The only way out of getting our hand burned off is if we fuck things up so badly that we end up waaaaaaaaay worse off than just having a hand burned off.
>>35416019Asher doesng have that much of a god complex yet, at least I doubt he does.
>>35416085>yetEventually we'll be seeding the moon with magical forests and making races of dryad ent people things and naming them after ourself.
>>35416064Clearly we need to burn the hand off BEFORE then end. FIGHT THE POWA!
>>35416102>Asher talking to asher about asher created all the ashers in asher
>>35416085>Asher doesng have that much of a god complexYou mean the nigga that screamed at the Fallen Angel of Lust about how he is a god and she better bow down?
>>35416134That reminds me, we need to get her and utterly crush her free will when we get high enough summoning.
>>35416124I didn't mean actually naming all of the individuals "Asher", I meant more along the lines of naming the race we create something that's based off of "Asher".Seems like a good way to boost up his legend.
>>35416134And he's still pussy whipped by emilia. Fun.
Oh, something interesting.http://ask.fm/Dranzy/answer/118483953950Merlin is still alive. We could totally go for that Archmage Asher thing that people brought up and just stick around on earth as a badass instead of ascending to the astral realm.
>>35416186Well it sure beats getting dick slapped by Camille
>>35416241>implying asher would bottom
>>35416167Asherlings?>>35416241I have less of a personal issue with Camille so it would be better.
>>35416241I can honestly say I wouldn't care either way. I don't play this quest for the romance, so I'd gloss over Camille relationshit drama just like I gloss over Emilia relationshit drama just like I'd gloss over relationshit drama with any other man/woman/tree/astral being/mineral/cat/whatever.
>>35416286>AsherlingsI dislike -lings as a suffix because it's too long. Ash and er are both short, almost still shorter than lings even when together.
>>35416199Fuck earth, gonna colonize other planets with sentient plant beings that auto adapt and can reproduce by themselves. Also they are hard wired to hate bones to their very core.>>35416338A solace is fine too.
>>35416447>Fuck earth, gonna colonize other planets with sentient plant beings that auto adapt and can reproduce by themselves. Also they are hard wired to hate bones to their very core.dareyouentermymagicalrealm.png
>>35416477>sexual reproductionIt's like you want your species to die outAsexual reproduction a best
>>35416511why not both?
>>35416511Plants do both.
>>35415862Um. I just wanted to point out:>>35414890>“Goddamnit! I fucking hate bones!”WEas the disembodied voice from the mech,
>>35416447>earth settles down>space program restarted>land on the moon>greeted and promptly killed by a group of ents, nymphs and other such plant beings all screaming "FUCK BONES"
>>35416545Oh man. That's... that's rich.
>>35416522Fair enough, but asexual reproduction is a must when you want to take over large swaths of territory
>>35416555I think they'd notice that the moon is suddenly covered in a magical hyperjungle before they got there, probably around the time it started being green instead of white in the sky.
>>35416545If only we meet under different circumstances.
>>35416579Maybe that's why they investigated.
>>35416555>implying they don't stealthilly kill them>skin them and wear them as suits>then go to earth and conquer the bone empire and free all the imprisoned nerves
>Asher in astral vision is a forest on fire, new growth constantly fighting with the flames as alchemic arrays float in and around the conflagration.That'd be pretty cool. A clusterfuck, but a cool looking clusterfuck.
>>35416689I think you meant "Florashers".Fuck this sounds exactly like what a cheesy megalomaniac would name them.
>>35416673>Legna is in the middle of this shitIf anyone looked at asher in astral and didn't immediatly fuck off they deserve to get a plant parasite attached to themFucking magic blocking/absorbing plants
>>35416732>Make a fire spell that causes manasynthetic plants to grow on whatever it burns>The manaplants suck up all the ambient mana and turn it into fire, blasting it everywhere
>>35416732>the florashers absorb magic and use it to reproduce asexuallyWhy use photosynthesis when you can draw in the flow? Also if we do this shit we will be worse for nerves than bones ever were
>>35416732>>35416781>>35416795Flora is OP as fuck, please never nerf it
>>35416795If we get enough Veins to work for us, we could put flora symbiotes on them so that their physical ability is even higher and send them to fuck up Bones for us.
>>35416816It sounds OP because all our plans assume it's at Adept or higher and we're combining it with Adept Summoning, Alchemy, and Pyro.With the amount of LIMIT we've sunk into this shit, we could have gotten Master rank in Hydro or Summoning and just thrown around tidal waves or summoned up some gods or something.
>Months ago.FLORA IS SHIT DO NOT GET>NowFLORA IS AMAZING.Ask.fm is amazing.
>>35416891I told them, Dran. I told them that it was good but they didn't believe me.I'm glad they finally saw the light.
>>35416579>not having Camille use painting magic to create an illusion to hide the moon>not having hunter rail gun the shuttle to bits>tfw asher will be all alone by the time he gets to the moonIt's probably the IC reason he would create a race of plant beings
>>35416891I still don't want to spec flora, I'm just not shitting on their fun.
>>35416907It was your parasite post that guided me. And I totally haven't been samefagging half of these plant posts. No sir, not at all
>>35416920But we need a life magic and it's right there all easy to get and the only downside has a workaround...
>>35416891Flora is still a waste, but I know I'm heavily outmatched in terms of votes, so whatever.
>>35416944Ssh anon, you'll make him spiteful, spite is a powerful thing
>>35416920>>35416958We need a life magic and Flora is a life magic. Unless we suddenly unlock Fauna or Genetics Manipulation for purchase, buying Flora is the biggest buff we can give to Alchemy, even moreso than actually leveling Alchemy itself.
>>35416891I wish we knew the stuff we know now back when we first started. Asher would be a lot less shit.
People would rather have gay flower manipulation than space magic. Fuck you guys.
>>35417003>rather>thanI want to live forever and get them all. Plant magic is just accessible.
>>35416990Let's go on /x/ and make a thread begging for life magic ploxWe can even namefag as the cyclops
>>35417003We'd have to go to space for that to happen. Although, I really do want it.Music manipulation is also something I'd like. Different genres/combinations of instruments resulting in different things.I was playing Guitaroo Man recently.
>>35416990>tfw mangleface could have reduced the prices for floraWe should have investigated
So if double awakenings are possible which would you want asher to get?
>>35417101Vein, most useful and bones are scum.
>>35417101Vein would let him abuse homunculi stuff even harder since it'd let him move his soul around without horrifyingly difficult and pretty much permanent rituals.
>>35417101Since were gonna talk about double awakenings, what would you guys do if emilia got double awakened as a bone.
>>35417153Get rid of her because Bones are scum and she's already trash tier.
>>35417153Grit my teeth and bear it... We liked Eshe well enough...And Marcus is Ok. I guess. not really.
>>35417153Dead to me as a person, more useful as a meatsheild though.
>>35414995 With the Rage-Beast kept at bay by the painted ward, and Marcus tied up with the OverMech, you find the time to take a breather. Staying low in the crowd of people bearing mutual fear and awe at everything happening.“Legna!” You call out to draw the Valkyrie's attention, and she slips near for an astral listen.(Go see who's casting that paint magic, I think that it's someone I know.)(If it is?)(Tell her that I'm here.) You think for a moment, (And that I'm trying to control this monster.)(If it isn't?)(You've got a sword right?)(Then get ready to cut them open when I give the word.)The Valkrie rushes away to the source of the spell, soon relaying that the person's name is Camille. You were right. (She says that it's been a while.)(Tell her I left the followers.) You say as you bide your time, the dance between Marcus and the Overmech getting more heated as he moves to slice the wraiths with heat, only to find that they're mostly unharmed by the strokes.“Thermal reconfigure! Easy when an Over's a one-trick pony!” The mechanical beast laughs as the highsonics from the wraiths blares out, forcing Marcus to draw distance out of their range.The Chinamen get ready to leap away again with some of the proto-suit wearers, yet a snake-like darkness attaches to their stark shadows, forcing them down and immobile, sounds like gunshots erupting as the two left barely dodge, air pressure grazing their flesh, letting out a spray of blood from the friction.
>>35417153>Shut up woman>gas the bones, magic war nowWe are literally an old man
>>35417205 The Cyborg Beast glances at the Chinamen, a sudden burst of chatter and the clad wraiths dart forward at surreal speed, riding in each others' slipstreams as they meld into liquid black from the speed. A disturbing blur of mechanical speed and the flash of blades and the chinamen are forced to defend themselves in vain, limbs falling in sections as the overclocked mechs cut them into meat ribbons.With the distraction, Marcus takes out a flask and knocks it back.“Wait, what the fuck are you-” The Beast seems confused for a second until Marcus's flames increase in size and shape, the man's entire body immolating as he slowly smiles, dropping the flask for the metal to knock against the stage “SHIT.”>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQgaNcCRlVQMarcus surges forward on the trails of flame, like greased lightning as mechanical chatter calls back the wraiths. Too slow, as Marcus divides the metal monster in passing, molten plastics, silicon, and metal following the flow of his passing. The black streaks make it to him, and in a flash of flame he's on the other side of them, with the only change being that their chest cavities are missing.In the astral you see an immense amount of magic flowing into the man, converting straight into the power of fire. In the real, smoke billows out of his form as he looks out to the Rage-Beast as it burns through the painted ward.(She says that it will break soon unless she paints more strokes.) Legna relays from the painter.You feel like you've cooled off more than a bit, yet the pain is still persistent in your body. “You gonna do something about that?” Marcus points out over the crowd, body still alight, a stench emanating that you can now smell, like burning gasoline.He looks to the others that were put out of commission, with the intervention of the wraiths, they're all present and accounted for, if not covered in bloodspray.
>>35417225 “YOU MOTHER----ING ----S!” The voice rings out from another of the mechs. “EH? WHO THE ---- INSTALLED A ----ING CENSOR IN MY MECH!?” The thing moves much more like a human as that voice transfers to a new one. “--- it! Apport GR MK 2 VANGUARD SPEC!” A colossal gun with multiple coils rung around it appears in the mech's hand. At first it seems as though it's from the ether, a summon? No, when it appears, it seems nearly as mundane as the mech until the steel and hyperlight blue coat it. “---- ALL THIS SHIT!”The mech pulls the trigger, and multiple layers of steel-gray paint are struck before the gun, shattering with the sound of steel as it detonates through all but a desperate last. Marcus makes to move, slicing the mech's head off as it lets out a series of bleating curses. “What the ----?! What the ---- do you mean unauthorized?! It's my ----ing gun you god----- ----s! Screw your bull-” You silence it with a fiend. So fucking annoying.The rage-beast Busts through, the painted barrier, putting itself through the hole as it climbs through, large burning canines dripping with molten concrete as it glares at you, civilians fleeing after the first one suffers a drip of the lava and screams out in pain.Shit.

>>35417385> genderbend and mind breakingThis isn't some shitty smut quest
>>35417419>hold out wand>scream some metal lyrics about joining us in our hate and hating together>get arm burned off
>>35417433You act like I would fuck a bone, I don't do beastiality m8
>>35417419>> Blink the fuck away!>> Draw up a ward and get this thing under fucking control.Do the Blink+Ignorance thing. May as well make our fuckup something spectacular.
>>35417419> Blink the fuck away!
>>35417419What's the best option for getting infected by the hate beast?
>>35417419> Demand a contract of this thing.
>>35417419When you say different ways, do you mean that some of them might lead to allies getting their arms burned off instead of Asher? Because I'd like Asher to get his arm burned off but I'm not going to vote for the contract because I didn't even want to do that the first time around.> Draw up a ward and get this thing under fucking control.
>>35417419This>>35417436>hold out wand>scream some metal lyrics about joining us in our hate and hating together>get arm burned off
>>35417469My guess would be that fighting fire with fire would have the highest chance of mixing our spiritual mumbo jumbos.
>>35417419> Draw up a ward and get this thing under fucking control.If it looks at all like it's contained, then move on to.> Demand a contract of this thing.
>>35417419> Demand a contract of this thing.I want that rage beast inside our soul
>>35417419> Draw up a ward and get this thing under fucking control.
>>35417419> Fight fire with fire!
>>35417498Nerve magic doesn't utilize the soul like Vein magic does. Just blasting fire at it isn't going to mix our stuff.What we need to do is stand there and scream at it some, fail to succeed at all with that, and then blink away when it tries to kill us. That will expose our soul to it.
>>35417419Spread arms open wide and start screaming "Fuck the bones!" Over and over
>>35417419Give him a hug, nigga just needs a hug. Need to let go of all dat hate nigga
>>35417419>[x] OtherUse a Pit to drop it into the ground, set up a ward to try to contain it, and then, maybe, try for the contract. Maybe.
>>35417225Man I just wanna know what the hell Marcus is drinking.
>>35417586How would dran make this one go bad? It turns the ground into lava and we loose our legs? Well replacing our legs would help our manurviability.
>>35417419>> Blink the fuck away!Either it fucks up our allies or it manages to fuck us up while we Blink somehow.>> Draw up a ward and get this thing under fucking control.Similar to before? I dunno.>> Demand a contract of this thing.Same as before.>> Fight fire with fire!The thing is literally made of Fiends. That just seems like it would make the thing bigger and then habbenings happen.
>>35417431If we run, rage-beast-sama won't respect us.>>35417419Is hydromancy an option?
>>35417668I believe that people wanted to set up the arm replacement so that vines would comes out of it when he wanted and they'd cover Asher's body with a biosuit that has the properties of the various suits integrated into it via Alchemy and working with the suitmaker. So he'd be getting the Agility suit buff from the arm.
>>35417608Probably magic fortified gasoline.
>>35417763>>35417802>Marcus is a gas-guzzler
>>35417763Childish fart jokes when?
>>35417839What's his MPG?
>>35417862Probably pretty good since I doubt that flask even holds a full gallon and he could probably go pretty far.
>>35417839https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxDFSYu1fRgThis song kind of Inspired Marcus's Magic reagant and his and Saph's relationship. Kind of.
>>35417883>>35417862He stands in one place and fireblenders people to death. He doesn't actually go anywhere, so it's probably a fraction.
Sucks that we had a great opportunity to try out cool new magic in this fight but instead we just summoned a monster that wants to kill us and blinked around a bit
So when asher dies what they gonna do with the body? Better give is a Viking funeral, water and fire, our favorite magics
>>35418049I think Blink and Rage Beast should have taught us never to experiment during combat unless the situation can't get worse.Spell innovation should be done in a controlled environment.
Contract it. Have it become our right hand.
>>35418157I didn't even think it was experimenting when I voted for "do an incantation to do a huge fiend". I thought it was just going to be a straight-forward huge blast, or that maybe it would do the rampaging animal thing in a bigger swarm or something.I sure as fuck didn't even consider the rage beast being in the realm of possibility. This thing seems like it's tougher than Asherah was when we summoned her and it sure as hell stuck around a lot longer.
>>35418225That reminds me, we should try summoning things with sacrifices more often. We summoned a literal God and we didn't turn to ash immediatly
>>35418225Wait a second an incantation affects our spells beyond reducing burn?
>>35418323If the burn is reduced, then putting the same amount of energy into the spell as it costs normally will get you a bigger effect.
>>35418384Our incantation was evoking the rage of a forest when used the fiend.
>>35418384>>35418323Normal fiend costs X mana.Incantation fiend costs (X/Y) mana where Y>X.Let's say that X=1 and Y=100 for the sake of dicking around. This means that spending the same amount of mana on an incantation fiend as you would on a normal fiend will get you something 100 times bigger if spells work linearly. But in reality, it's probably bigger because nearly everything in OHverse seems to be exponential bullshit.
>>35418384>year long incantation>everything in us to the point of passing outThere is a monk out there right now who has been chanting for years upon years, let's hope he's a nice man
>>35418465Father assrape should go around reading the bible front to back over and over.
>>35418448That was the boost of the wand. We could have said the same thing without the wand and we wouldn't have gotten the rage beast. We probably could have said something different and still gotten rage beast if we blasted the same amount of mana through the wand.
>Dran writing the scene about how we cocked everything up and got allies killed instead of just our arm
>>35418548It really feels like we don't care about what happens to us recently.
Is Dran playing Korean RPGs again?
>>35418668Nah. Specifically not playing that right now like I said I would. Almost done.
>>35417419The thing opens up its maws and you blink to the first place you can see as the exploding flames rip away a part of the crowd. Your old body's evaporated by the blast as your consciousness returns. The best turns, staring right at you again. A surge of panic and once more you blink, appearing at a new location as it turns to incinerate you again along with another swath of the crowd.Burn flesh fills your nostrils and you feel sick to your stomach as you blink again, falling to your knees with wand in hand.“GET SOME YOU PRICK!” The sound of the same gun from before is heard, like steel cannon firing its payload as the thing's shot back by the force of an enchanted round. Disembodied laughter sounds out just before the Marcus cuts that one off too. As the head flies, there's one last message, “IT'S A TRAP ----OT!” The mech detonates at once, blasting Marcus's flaming body away and back over the stage, a stroke of paint stopping him from flying too far.Raising up your wand as people scream and burn around you, the thing slowly turns to stare you- and its origin- down.“I command you to stop!” The beast stretches its maw open as though savoring every moment of demise that it's caused with this as the pinnacle. “STOP I SAID!” You yell out, coughing on the smoke that the charred human corpses are emitting, the heat sweltering and breath getting harder to take.You wrestle with the monsters mana as it resists you, preparing for the destruction breath that is its Fiend.“I demand a contract!” You say in desperation, and the beast pauses for a moment as the burning pupilless eyes seem to consider the plight. It is but for a fraction of a second, a moment that could be an eternity. The maw opens up again and unleashes the scorching fiend-ray just as Marcus strikes the inferno.
>>35418764 You bend the mana around you with the help of the wand, the combusting air exploding in arcs around you of smoky black and red flames. Yet then you feel a slight tingle at first, the precursor burning sensation that one might feel if they touched a hot oven for a mere eighth of a second. Then the wand peels apart in flames, riding up your arm and bathing it in fire that makes your flesh boil down to the bone.A wordless scream of bloody murder escapes from your mouth as tears of pain streak down your face. You attempt to blink. To get away from it, yet the pain pervades your every thought as the fire creeps up your forearm, the wretched smell of your own baking and popping flesh filling your nose as a hot wetness douses your pants. Insane with desperation, you try even to scrape off and quench the flames by stabbing it into the pavement, yet they're replaced no matter the effort and no amount of pyromancy wills the flames away as they rapidly ascend up your arm, threatening to reach for your eye, the last light you have of this world.Only one thing you can thing of doing before the flames spread too far... You need to initate... A blink.Summoning up the last of your willpower, you cast an image of yourself. Washed away by your own flames, you appear at the other side, quickly blacking out.You hear some familiar laughter as you drift into the ether. Too familiar, you'd loved her laugh when it was with you.Lucia.
>>35418791 She approaches your soul during its most vulnerable moment. “Oh Asher, how you dissapoint. Never could handle that flame, could you? I shall be taking it back now. I'm sure you mind. But it was mine to begin with.”You scream out in spiritual agony as Lucia's hands rip into your spiritual body, sucking the fire of your soul right out of you. With a smile, she dangles the orb of knowledge and power before you as though to tease the deprived. “You are not worthy.” She whispers with no small hint of spite, turning, and vanishing back into the ether as you feel yourself... leaking. It's terrible. Everything you are... Everything you should be... It's all LEAKING out of you. The greatest terror pervades your mind as you realize what's going on.You're going to stop existing. Become one with the rest of the flow. No. No. No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.No.Stop it.

No.No.No.No.No.No.No!Live...You feel something stop up the leak, and you shiver as something new enters into you. Where there was once fear, there is now hate. Desperation gives way to anger. It's powerful, changing. Great. Strong.You feel the beast before you, staring at you as parts of it join with and intermingle with the missing.A growling, primal voice erupts into your hearing, “Me hate. You hate. Me pain. You pain. You live. Me live.”“Want Life. Me. You. Want. They take. Me take. You take. Take life?”>(Other)
>>35418814>[x] "We live."
>>35418814>>35418894This. Nice and simple. Also, ragebeast hype!
>>35418814>bones are very emotional>caused by physical tortureDouble awakening time? Which is worse, death or bonedom?
>>35418814"We live. We take. They will not take our life."I'm not sure if it's just confirming that we want to join with it or if it's trying to suggest that we pull a Marcus and burn the shit out of the people here to absorb their souls as rage-fuel or something.
>>35418894This. Time for asher to grow some big flaming balls. We hate. We live.
>>35419008Veins are the emotional ones. Bones are the hands-on direct approach ones.Also, this isn't physical torture, it's emotional/soul torture.And even if this was physical torture, it was physical that made him awaken as a Nerve. It's not a rule, it's a trend.
>>35419028Yeah fuck you Edgelord, we were the original. Asher returns more spiteful then ever
>>35418894"We live. We hate. We ball hard. We Young Money."
>>35419067Still, I'm getting a big double awakening feel, after all awakening is a soul thing, so what happens when two souls join? And Biggie here obviously ain't a nerve
>>35419096Was Edge lord drans way of making fun of old asher?
>>35419098>>35419114Can we call him Biggie Smalls?
>>35419114Biggie's an astral being made from an ascended forest. Astral beings don't necessarily fall into the Bone/Nerve/Vein dynamic.
>>35419146That's what I was going for, so absolutely, spitting fire man
>>35419146I'm definitely going to call it Biggie Smalls in thread, but I hope that Dran comes up with something else to use in-quest.
>>35419152Well we certainly aren't 100% nerve anymore.
>>35419192I don't see why you're saying that. This really isn't that much different than when Luci pumped us full of pyromancy.
>>35418814>"We are fiend."It's the best choice
>>35419202You never heard Biggie rap about being a giant, flaming rage beast?
>>35419146I'd rather not.
>>35419202Because he spits hot fire. Just like Biggie. May he rest in peace.
Actually can we just summon Biggie's shade? Also bring back Eazy-E while we're at it.
>>35418814Luci really is the perfect crazy ex
>>35418814I don't mind becoming a hateful badass, but I do kinda feel weird about having this thing kicking around our soul. Can we get rid of it, or at least cleanly fuse with it?
>>35419202He's a big mofo and he's technically dead. Rip
>>35419274Lucifer so precious.
>>35419279We are fusing with it, it's like a ball of water in space that lost some water getting filled up by another ball of water. We are one. We live. We hate.
>>35419279>Can we get rid of itIf you want the rest of our soul to leak out all over the place.
>>35419271If we gonna grab the shades of dead rappers lets get the whole lot of them
>>35418814Let's hope we can still use pyro for not burn and murder kill killMagic tricks are fun
>>35419271>>35419327This is so incredibly dumb on so many levels. You guys know how shades work, right? You need the soul of the recently deceased to make a copy out of mana. By now, their souls have been kicking around in the death layer for a while.On top of that, why in the fuck would we do that? It's fucking dumb.
>>35419342>No fun allowed
>>35419306>>35419322As long as it fuses and we become one, I'm cool with it. 2 beings inhabiting the same soul fucking disgusts me for some reason.
>>35419342Why not? You hate fun or did some guy already grab them and start recording new music with them?
>>35418814>With a smileSo, she's still totally into us, right Dran?
>>35419383Y-yeah anon. She totally digs you.
>>35419370I was fucking joking with the summoning they're shades. I'm still calling the big dude Biggie.
>>35419383Didn't she say she always liked rebels? We are a giant rebel, we have regained our bad boy appeal
>>35419411>>35419383Hopefully we can salvage what's left of our relationship.
>>35419401>I'm still calling the big dude Biggie.That's cool. I just hope that Dran doesn't go with it in the quest itself, like how everyone calls Wolfgang "Father Assrape", but Dran never actually calls the dude that in-quest.
>>35419399Heh, I knew she playing hard-to-get, that little minx. We'll have to give hive the ol' Asher Smasher, if you know what I mean.
>>35419435Nah, if we get back with Luci she is gonna crawl back to us on her knees, we will wear the pants this time. I doubt biggie would put up with anything less
>>35419379>Tupac is a shade>that's why we still see new mix tapes being sold
>>35419399She's already got a new champion picked out, don't she. That's what the pyromancy reclamation was about, getting it back for the new Hell King to be.
>>35419449>Asher Smasher>Atom SmasherMolecular fission powers when?
>>35419472Alright new mission, find and kick this guys teeth in.
>>35419485Now. Adept Alchemy unlocked matter->energy transmutation.
>>35419489What do you have against teeth?
>>35419471Tupac already has holograms. Shades are basically a step away.
>>35419503They killed my dog
>>35419502Nope.Element and molecular rearranging is a go though.
>>35419489>tfw he chooses the old man incarnation of Lucifer
>>35419531You mean atomic rearranging right? Moving molecules is pointless really
>>35419531Well then. Point us in the direction please. Who the fuck needs pansy flora powers when you can recreate your fucking flesh on the molecular level.
>>35419531http://ask.fm/Dranzy/answer/117946293534You said it does. You confirmed that it does multiple times when asked on other occasions, I can go digging through the archive if you want me to prove it. If we can't do it, you might want to take it off the pastebin as a thing we can attempt to do.
>>35419598>Who the fuck needs pansy flora powers when you can recreate your fucking flesh on the molecular level.You need life magic to do that without master/divine rank. And even if you have master/divine, it's still harder without life magic.
>>35419598We still need life magic. Dran nerfed alchemy to hell and back. Also don't call it pansy flora magic, this shit can stop casting and absorb magic before bones do
>>35419637>Dran nerfed alchemy to hell and back.Did he really? I fucking called that shit WAY back.
>>35419654Yep and he'lol probably do it to flora too
>>35419606I meant that it does the atomic/molecular rearrangement. You're just not breaking atoms.
>>35419675>Implying he won't nerf everything.
>>35419711>not knowing how science worksIt requires the breaking of atoms YA dumb
>>35419711I love how you're acting like atomic manipulation isn't just completely broken and overpowered. Can't wait until we get it.
>>35419728No it doesn't.That said, he's still said before that Adept could do matter to energy conversions.
>>35419741Fuck you for telling him, here comes the nerf train, atomic manipulaton now requires three teachers, a Devils heart, and divine in all curently known magics
>>35419773To be fair, that's basically fucking nothing for such a powerful ability.
>>35419801>divine in all curently known magics>not much
>>35419801He's already confirmed that there's Bones who can tank multiple nukes to the face, stand up, dust off their pants, and walk it off like it was nothing.
Dran, what are your thoughts on music manipulation?
>>35419862>wanting to add in another spell that has little to no synergy with our existing build
>>35419873Why not. Already wasted water, ice and added flora to our power. We're basically fucked past the point of return anyways.
>>35419862No matter how op we get, we won't ever become op enough
>>35419897The fuck are you on about? Hydro was raised to adept, which was the minimum rank required to unlock alchemy. The only "wasted" point we have is from Illusion, and maybe the points we put into Pyro and MF if you want to be a really anal tryhard about it.
>>35419929Oh great Alchemy. The thing that's been nerf'd to borderline worthless. Can't wait for that to become irrelevant as well.
>>35419943>I don't get what I want so I'll bitch real loud and real hard about how everything is shit
>>35419943We could always oath away shit we don't want anymore for boosts in other areas.Even though oaths really bother the fuck out of me.
>>35419938Go back to writing the bit where we go bezerk and slaughter our allies and a bunch of innocents
>>35418814 “We live.” You whisper as you let the hate flow through you. “We take, you get a grip on your spiritual self, as the thing replaces what you've lost. “We take! They will not take our life!” You yell out and the oozing black fire seals itself into your soul like a poultice of rage.Doubling over back into your own body, you feel very real pain as you snap awake, screaming into your own room, fire exploding along with walls as you thrash about at the foreign entity. The bed bursts into flames and you roll out of the bed, hitting the floor before you come to your senses and cease the flames.With labored breathing you struggle to rise, quickly finding that only one of your arms is moving and that there's a severe pain throbbing in your face, just below your eye.Flopping onto your back, you lay on the floor. You explore your face, touching below your right eye, tracing down to a feel hard flesh, then your teeth where your cheek should be. The feeling begins to return and you grip your face in agony, gnashing your teeth together as you stifle back hate and tears. You press a hand against your shoulder, rigid caramelized flesh, and further down, more limp and charred flesh.There's a cold sweat on your brow and you take a deep breath only now realizing that you feel like shit. The door's thrown open and Xix runs in, ripe with panic, “Smoke, Patient. Private. Where- ah!” She throws herself down beside you, carefully picking you up. “Careful. 6th degree burns. Diagnosed in post-mortem. Should be dead. Hydra stabilized, still in danger.” Her strength is surprising as she hoists you back up into the bed, still kind of panicking. A claw protrudes from her fingertip and she slides the thing into one of your veins.“What the fuck are you-” The pained anger boiling in your blood is quieted by whatever Xix is injecting you with. You quickly fall back to sleep...
>>35419996Great. Now he's going to start posting about how he wants to seal off Alchemy to boost up some hypothetical music spell. Thanks, anon.
>>35420028>we are two face now>we don't remember little sis XIX
>>35420029Do whatever you want with alchemy. We're fucked either way. It's not going to be good. I was just asking a question.
>>35420061We remember her. If we didn't remember her, the post wouldn't have said "Xix", it'd have said something along the lines of "bizarre little girl with fat legs"
>>35420028IT'S TWO-FACE TIME. Now all we need is a half burnt quarter and we can begin to have some fun.
>>35420094>implying both sides don't mean horrible burning agony
>>35420028I guess we're really gonna have to get a leg up on them alch mods.
>>35420087Oh I read "what" as why, I thought we didn't recognize her
>>35420061>>35420087yeah, that was>“What the fuck are you-”as in >“What the fuck are you doing?"not as in>“What the fuck are you?!"The dash is the key.>>35420094My first priority is to fix that shit. Now we need faunamancy so we can graft skin, I was cool with a groot arm but not with a groot face.
>>35420028We better have a dick still
>>35420136>My first priority is to fix that shit. Now we need faunamancy so we can graft skin, I was cool with a groot arm but not with a groot face.Incorporating the Dress-up suit into the flora mods would allow them to mimic flesh.
>>35420136Pass on that. Intimidation is the key. And only having one side of our face is pretty intimidating.
We should just get someone to teach us how to use a glamour
>>35420155>they think we'll be horrified of fire and want the fire proof one>we want the dress up one so we look less stupidAlso if plant parasites can absorb magic, they can be used to store it, our plant armor can absorb and store magic for us. Cool as hell
>>35420182Are we gonna be that one elf fucker from Lotr? Some bitch gets mouthy we drop the spell and go full intimidation mode?
>>35420141>not wanting a magic dong.Why even play the quest, anon?
>>35420194We want all the suits. Now that ZG has stolen a few, we can just ask Eloc to give us more and people will think we just reverse engineered them or something.We're putting /all/ the suits in our mod, whether they're plant or not.Plant would just let us start sooner.
>>35420155Ehhhhhhhhhh...I feel like it's worth going the extra mile for just straight up faunomancy. It's the difference between cultivating our body into beautiful apex human and changing into disguised plant FREAKISH LIIIIEEEEE.Also the homunculi we create will be weird beats, not faggy sylvari.We could probably unlock it right now too if we ask Xix to teach how to into biology.
>>35420028 Your dreams are plagued by burning forests and the screams of animals dying by fire even as they flee in terror. Trees of decades fall over, their residents aflame and baking in the immolation. This happens for miles on end until you yourself catch flame, you panic, fearful and then mortified as you realize that you cannot move, you can only watch yourself burn slowly as the river turns black with your ashes.You awaken with Emilia at your side, holding your unburnt hand. She looks to you with a lip bitten to hold back tears and pain, “Hey.” She whispers, the words barely making their way out.You stare at her for a moment. A lapse, and almost a calmness even as you're furious about the result. Only have yourself to blame for it.“We're both fucked up now, aren't we?” your voice croaks, cracked and parched. You swallow and feel the burns strain against the flesh on the right side of your neck. She touches your face, feeling the softness on the side with the empty socket. No left eye and half-burned. She leans in to kiss you. At the last moment, you almost turn away. But you hesitate, and her lips press against the softness.She moves away, smiling sadly, her hand gripping yours a bit tighter.You return the gesture, some degree of peace is to be found with her holding your hand. “I'm... going back to sleep. I'm glad. That I can still see you.”Emilia chokes back her grief and nods. “I am too. I'll be right here,okay?”“Yeah...” You close your eye and slip back into slumber.>4 LIMIT gained.>3 Forcibly spent.>Apprentice Floramancy gained!
>>35420224>>>4 LIMIT gained.>>3 Forcibly spent.>>Apprentice Floramancy gained!Based Rage Beast. That nigga love the forest.
>>35420224Did this somehow make us closer to this bitch? Fucking hell, atleast we got rage beast now.
>>35420224>4 LIMIT gained.>3 Forcibly spent.>Apprentice Floramancy gained!Oh yes.
>>35420222Welp. >>35420224Nevermind.Still think we should at least get a little of dat good faunomancy so we don't have to be a freakish fusion of man and plant, but I won't fight you guys over it just because I have ocd.
>>35420224Faust time? Please be Faust time...
So do we still have our right hand or is it just really crispy? Also are we able to heal from this? Maybe with Morgans help?
>>35420273We can make it look better and better as time goes on.
>>35420261How long till asher makes a stupid beauty and the beast comment?
>>35420291>Also are we able to heal from this? Maybe with Morgans help?Dude, she needs human sacrifice to do an eye. She burned herself out with an eardrum. The entire point of this was to give Asher an IC reason to ask Faust about Alchemically modding himself to escape the weaknesses of human flesh that Nerves retain.
>>35420296Right before zerker rage kicks in and we kill her
>>35420291I'm sure she could at least heal our face with a proper sacrifice
>>35420224THE NATURE BOY is real.
>>35420311Well as long as there's a way to fix ourselves up I don't really mind who teaches us how. I just don't want to be crispy twoface
I don't mind if this made Asher and Emilia closer. I'm not crazy about her, but I think they're cute together and I enjoy her at times. At the very least, she's not nearly as bad as she was with Fara in her.
>>35420333It'll probably look a little weird at first. Not nearly as bad as it does being all burned, but we can improve it with time.
>>35420028This made me think of Lt. Dan falling out of his bed and then thrashing around but then the entire room is on fire.
>>35420334I only hate her guts because the relationship they have is an exact copy of one of mine from highschool, and to put it nicely it was a very self destructive relationship. Reliance on another person is a bad thing if it's left unchecked, especially when on one job you could easily die.
So is this going to be a DXQ situation where we're unable to get rid of Emelia for some bullshit reason?
>>35420224>first reaction to XIX is rage>first reaction to emilia is calmnessSo is emilia your waifu or do you just really wanna push emiliaXasher?
>>35420398Dude. She's been here since the beginning and just recently"got gud" she's gonna be here a while
>>35420398If by bullshit reason you mean the countless pro-Emilia votes throughout the quest then yes.
>>35420405The rage was from falling out of the bed onto 6th degree burns and then realizing that our face is toasted, not Xix.
>>35420398The bullshit reason is that there is no point to getting rid of her.>>35420405I think it more has to do with the fact that she's allies with Mother Earth.
>>35420398>bullshit reasonPretty much every single vote that involved her over the course of 40+ threads has been positive, encouraging her, or trying to at least not let the relationship implode.
>>35420398What is the IC reason for wanting to get rid of her?Seriously, why would Asher want her gone? You hating her isn't a valid reason.
>>35420434Yeah that does make sense, guess I'm assuming a bit much about biggie, maybe he views them as our forest? Also are 6th degree burns an actual thing? I've never heard of them
>>35420459Yah despite the vocal anti Emilia minority the votes have been clearly in favor of keeping her around
>>35420430>pro-emiliaYou mean pro-anyonethatsusefultous?I want to keep her around, but I don't wanna be in her pants.
>>35420480>Biggie is pro-forests, pro-plants>Emilia's magic path is "Child of Gaia"Biggie is gonna fucking love her.
>>35420480If they do exist as a category they tend to show up on blackened corpses
>>35420504This is pretty much my views as well, I don't want that kind of relationship with her. Hell anyone really.
>>35420480 Xix told the gist.6th degree burns are where the bones is charred. They are only diagnosed during autopsy post-mortem.It's when the burns go through the layers of skin, into the flesh, and finally, char the bone. They are 100% mortality. Though Xix's blood cocktail and attention saved his life.
>>35420505Does Gaia really have anything to do with plants? Seems less of a plant person more of the ground their on. Demeter or some shit would be a more plant person
Relationships ruined Asher. I told you guys, but no one listened.I could have saved you. Freed Asher in ways you cannot see.
>>35420561Gaia is Mother Fucking Earth.
>>35420224>last time seeing emilia was an option>now it's notU 2
>>35420599Not by what we normally think of Mother Earth as
>>35420224 Your dreams slip you back into the ether, the rage of the wood roiling within you slowly, eased by the touch of Gaia, a caring hand, and other aspects within you despite the rage. You look to your right hand in the astral and see nothing but a charred black death, who knows what the rest looks like...Who would have a solution for this? For a time you wrack your brain. There's Morgan, yet there's a clear limit to her healing powers. Lore says that she took Arthur to Avalon for healing. Apparently the last that was ever seen of Arthur. Who knows what she might demand though.Faust might know of some possibility if he's really well learned... Would he give away that knowledge for free?Then there's Gaia. She healed you before... It's possible... And she asked for nothing to do it...> Morgan. Let's see what Avalon is like.> Faust. An Alchemist must have some kind of trick for this.> Gaia. Mother Earth has looked out for you without asking. Let's see what she has to say.> (Other)
>emilia is useful as shit to asher in combat>is the only one who doesn't die or defect>somehow gives him immunity from luci by sleeping together>is the first one to see him besides XIXHoly coinkydink batman, I like the cute little bugger but this is a bit much...
>>35420405Emilia/Gertrude/Saph/Echo/Jackie are all my waifus.Make of this what you will.
>>35420646> Faust. An Alchemist must have some kind of trick for this.
>>35420646> Faust. An Alchemist must have some kind of trick for this.Any option but this one is pure hearsey
>>35420646> Faust. An Alchemist must have some kind of trick for this.but I do admit that I really want to know what gaia's deal is.
>>35420681You like snuff porn? Or are you just a sadist?
>>35420646>> Faust. An Alchemist must have some kind of trick for this.No more fucking around.>>35420681Cool shit taste bro.
>>35420681>echo would have gotten waifu teir plot armor>we're stuck with emilia nowI am utterly defeated.
>>35420737Echo was way too annoying for me to consider her waifu material.
>>35420737Well if she dies maybe echo will comfort us?
>>35420770>not liking energetic idiotsCome on she hits the sweet spot between weirdo and ungodly bubbly just right
>>35420789Eh she just seems like a ten year old on too much sugar to me.
>>35420807Do you not like little kids? I mean maybe if she had sticky hands and was constantly sticking shit in her mouth I could get why you dislike her.
>>35420737>>35420789Echo was really terrible, dude, I'm sorry. Eshe was the one who got away. Now all we're left with is living trash only worth being sacrificed.
>>35420841>eshe>liking sub-human trashThat said though emilia is less than sub-human trash and would take eshe anyday, anyone wanna grab Her shade and get fara 2.0?
>>35420839O like kids fine but even though she's 18 she reminds me of a kid too much to think of her romantically
>>35420877>Hating chocolate (maybe) princessWhy don't you go hang yourself.
I just don't understand the irrational Emilia hate. I'm going to keep voting for her when it comes up
Can the people whining about Emilia not see that you've already lost?
>>35420916Sure, it's better than being stuck with emilia, see you in the flow nigga
>>35420918Sorry. She's kinda? useful, but her personality and characterization is shit.
>>35420883Fair enough, I just don't really make the connection between her and a kid as much as a I do a dog given human form. Always happy to see people.
>>35420950She kind of went crazy in her isolation. Remember her name, Echo, is because aside from Fox that's the only thing she heard?
>>35420923Until she's inmortal nothing has been lost>>35420918Considering personal opinions of characters/people are never rational you're right, I just don't like her
>>35420975>I just don't like herFair enough I suppose
>>35420966She literally forgot her own name? That's sad. Stop making me want her more.
>>35420966So she went full reek and started calling herself echo?
>>35420950>tfw you will never pet the echo and tell her she's a good girlI really hope she can see some of this shit, fix must be laughing his astral ass off
>>35421044I hope the first thing she says to us is "I'm not a dog." But in a really huffy and psedou upset voice, because being petted is the best thing ever
>>35421099Again with this headpat meme? Where does this come from?
>>35421099>tfw 6'3" and will never get petted
>>35421128>memeNigger having someone pet and play with your hair is awesome as shit, even better if you have shaggy hair.
>>35421153well it is a meme since it's basically a thing in ever quest. Got to be the same person or something.
>>35420646 In short time, you summon up the mirror and dial up Faust. It takes some time for him to actually respond, the symbol appears but he doesn't sound to happy, “I believe that I told you to speak with me at the end of the week. This is the day before.”“Don't care. Something happened and I need advice.” You say, steadfast. “Don't mean disrespect but I'm not sure if I'll make it until tomorrow.”Faust seems to get thoughtful on that point, “What's happened?”“Burnt my arm. Real bad. Thing's a black stick now. I should be dead but I'm being kept alive by something. Don't know if I'll be dead today, tomorrow, or the next day. I need to fix this as soon as possible.”“What were you hoping for? If you've learned anything as a mage you'd know that healing is far harder than destruction.”“Yes. But that doesn't mean that it's impossible.”“Well, do you know any life magic? Water, Plant, Blood, or something else?”You look away, “I have power over water... But it's not much. I can't create, only control. I've maipulated plants before though...”“Well, it's a start...”Faust gives you some instruction, or tips rather. Be it out of pity or to see if you're smart enough to actually do it. When you wake up, you're ready to give it a try.
>>35421166Considering I follow 5 quests, I seriously doubt it's one person. Unless I'm pulling some fight club ass shit in my sleep, which I doubt is even possible.
>>35421216Emilia helps you up to the door to the wood early morning, you lean against a tree laborously, sweat beading on your brow from your condition. You drink down some water Emilia brings you to quench your thirst and Xix is on standby not too far. You begin to draw a circle with your left hand in the soil, immediately pissed when you can't do it straight, and then fuck up the symbols. If it's wrong it won't work or it'll be a bust... Xix looks over your act.“What are you doing?” She acts with an innocent, yet clinical curiousity.“Drawing a circle to focus magic. Can't do it since I'm not a left through, want to give it a try?” You pass the stick to her and like a robot, she traces out a perfect circle, no flaws save for the difference in land material.Impressed, you give her instructions on how to draw the rest of the symbols while you have Emilia go out to find a seed...The wood is deciduous...> Maple.> Oak.> Ash.> Aspen
>>35421235Well then it is a meme since it spreads from person to person in a culture.>>35421241> Ash.
>>35421241> Ash.Florashers her we come
>>35421259Is that what a meme is? That makes kissing a meme. That makes a lot of things a meme. And that's utterly disgusting
>>35421241>> Ash.Asher. Seems obvious.>>35421324Don't be an idiot.
>>35421241Is that one guy who knew the significance of different woods here?
>>35421241> Oak.Good for fire magic.
>>35421358Oak is the only one of those that is good for magic.
>>35421241> Ash.Time to fuel our own God complex just a little more.
>>35421391Both oak and ash have supposed magical healing properties
>>35421391I'm vaguely certain aspen is a very magic type of wood.
>>35421241> Oak.The sacred wood of norse mythology.
>>35421425>>35421421I meant fire magic.
>>35421241> Ash.Is there any other choice here?
>>35421427Ash is also sacred to norse.Yggdrasil is an ash tree.
>>35421241> AshSeems the most fitting considering we're Asher.We've been rolling with the Ash puns since the beginning, no reason to stop now.>Water mageDealth with ASHara>Fire mageTurn you into ASH, lel>Plant mage (?)Muh arm is ASHSpeaking of what kind of mage we are, did having that shit torn out of us by luci reduce our pyromancy level? Or did the ragebeast make up for it? Do we still have divination?
>>35421450And we plan on colonizing planets.Operation world tree here we go.
>>35421460Ash wood does nothing for fire magic. It only help healing magic.Oak does both healing magic and fire magic.
>>35421497Oak will probably give minor buffs to both healing magic and fire magic while Ash will probably give us a big buff to healing magic.
>>35421497If only dran would word of God this, Shame he's a dick butt who believes heavily in IC and ooc knowledge. Can we ask Legna to give us advice? It's part of her contract
>>35421515>Known as Wizard Wood, this wood is perhaps the strongest. Draws off the element of fire, as well as lightning. Seeks a powerful companion, a guardian and liberator. Excellent for protection, defensive, prosperity, sacrifice and power house spells. Robust and true, Oak is strongly rooted in the earth and easily channels natural life energies. Slow and steady growing, Oak helps one intuitively focus on the task at hand. You know nothing.
>>35421532>protection That's not anywhere near what we should go for
>>35421241>> Ash.I'm all about "I", give the rest of the vowels back.
>>35421551And Ash is for divination. When was the last we used divination?
>>35421532>Seeks a powerful companionNope.>a guardian lol>and liberatorNot any more.
>>35421570A few days ago? I don't understand time in overhuman. What are the other woods mister wood man
>>35421216Wasn't our wand made of ash? Feels appropriate to replace our arm with it.
>>35421551Did you miss the part where it's used to kick ass.>Ash: Known as the father of trees. If you seek knowledge, absorbing illness and healing spells, aiding in communication, Ash is your wood. It is often used for protection. Drawing its power from water, ash seeks a healing companion with focus and strength of purpose
>>35421604>companionYou getting this info from a new age shit stain website?
I'd rather replace our arm with mythril or adamantite.
>>35421600Poplar you pleb. Ash is useless for fire magic
>>35421241>> Ash.Put your two cents in, get a dollar back
>>35421241Can we just send emilia to the store and grab us a seed that's not on this list?
>>35421665What magic shit is poplar used for?
>>35421241 Emilia retrieves a seed from an ash tree and places it in the center as directed. Xix finishes the rest of the symbols to the satisfaction of your memory and you lay out water to fill out the circle itself along with the marks. Loamy earthen soil, a seed as a medium as well as sacrifice and water to bridge the gap between man and plant, to bind. With a painfully closed eye, you touch the black mass that is your old arm and place your burnt closed fist over the seed.“Hear me. Tree within the tree.Fruit of nature's seed.Take my burnt and blackened boneYour earth, my core.” Your charred fingertips glow with magic, a Black and Cyan light...“Blessed be the Ash,Cousin of the world's tree.Oh Tree within the Tree.Bond with me.”As you speak the end, the circle glimmers with magic and seed sprouts, entangling your burnt and closed fist with roots. You flinch as the seed probes, feeling around and slowly stabs into and through your burnt arm. If you could feel it, this would most likely be agonizing. It progresses with every bit of magic fed to it to stimulate growth, eventually wrapping all the way around your arm and melding together into a ropy muscle simulation, then a bark-like exterior. Finally, the pain comes when it stabs into the muscle tissue of your shoulder, and progresses up your neck, growing a leaf-like color just below your eye.You try to pull up after a while, but find that your growing arm is still bound to the earth. You're stuck there until it decides to let go, everything still forming, growing, and persistently draining you.
>>35421737We should go for Poplar since it is the mana superconductor.
>>35421760 As the ritual ends, you feel wholey drained, yet... whole. You rise up, slowly using magic to flex the wooden fingers, to give them some kind of articulation. You did good, better than you thought. Better than you would've imagined... It's actually very human-like in shape and appearance with the only shortcoming being from the texture. You have to wonder... Did Xix somehow put her knowledge of anatomy into this?It'll take some time to get used to it. For now you need to use magic to control the arm. The healing isn't finished either... The wood is still feeding off of the charred and dead flesh.“It... looks good.” Emilia seems relieved when it's all over.“Mirror.” You hold out your new hand and she tosses it over. You nearly drop it with a fumble, saving it by a sudden burst of mana.Looking over your face, the leaf covers the missing part of your cheek, but the black flesh still peeks out. It's obvious that something unnatural is going on with you. Makeup might help obscure that. Or just never show your face in public. The left side of your face pulls into a morbid smile at that thought. As you toss the mirror back.“Good enough, I'll work on it later. Let's go see about the spoils of the mission.” You look back feeling healthier than before, “Come on Emilia, Xix. We got shit to do.”>[End Thread]
>>35421770RIP Two-Face Asher. Killed before his time.
>>35421791Was thinking more of that one necromancer Hero from M&M5. Something Half Dead.
>>35421770>hold out our hand>she tosses it>we literally just got our arm back and controlling it is rather hard>she fucking tosses itThe fuck emilia? Did your brain shut down for a second there?
>>35421770So nothing was accomplished besides getting a groot arm and a groot half face? Also stop writing in huge detail for minor things, it gets annoying
>>35421882Wow, selling it short, huh?Floramancy. Rage Beast infusion. Found out that Daedalus will "ASSUME DIRECT CONTROL" when some fuckers jam up his mechs, Grafted plant arm for a new look, and them fucking suits.
>>35421812What would happen if we picked Morgan or Gaia? Just wondering unless it's supposed to be a secret or something.
>>35421927Good thread Dran. Is the next one tomorrow or Saturday?
>>35421958Technically today. at 20:00 by my time.
>>35421927You mean we didn't already know he could do that? I pretty much assumed that the second he talked to us in the truck
>>35421970How much did ashers combat effectiveness just go up? Also that one point is for alchemy adept right? Do we actually have to say that or can you assume?
>>35422089I already updated the paste.
>>35421970Is this kinda accurate? Shitty microsoft paint skills HO!
>>35422107Pretty much. The leaves start up at the neck and continue to the face.
>>35422103So our magic glow is now black and cyan? I miss our red. Let's go steal it from lucis new champion
>>35422150How does something glow black? Also when will the cyan disappear, it's being pretty stubborn.Not that I mind.
>>35422166,Google it, shits weird
>>35422166Probably just looks like inky black magic shadows. Cause black is the absence of color and shit.
>>35422166This isn't for like, "Black glow wut?"But Asher's glow is going to be Red/orange and Cyan.
>>35422288Nigga why? Black and red would be amazing, can I pay you money to get rid of cyan?
>>35422316I'd prefer orange and green colors, Halloween up in this bitch.
>>35422335I'd rather not look like a pumpkin when we cast magic, and green would clash horribly with orange a grey would work and be spooky.
