As Jin celebrates via hugging you as hard as she can, you note a pair of bed-headed harpies looking around sleepily.Shouting apparently wakes people up.Who knew?Lia peers over the bed at her now bleached daughter, and shrugs as she catches your eye.You raise an eyebrow."No, this is pretty much what I expected."Jin pulls free from you, spinning at the sound of her mother's voice."Mom, look!""I can see you, little bird.""Hahaha!"Your friend bounces excitedly up onto the bed, flapping and showing off her wings while her mother smiles.You yawn. Excitement aside, it's still early. You kinda wanna sleep in. >Just rest your head, nod off for a bit.>If you're up, you might as well do something. Starting with breakfast.>Track down Lann, make some plans to take a job. You missed out the other day.>Other (?)

>>36039228>Just rest your head, nod off for a bit.
>>36039228>>Track down Lann, make some plans to take a job. You missed out the other day.Let's take our new birdy for a test drive.
>>36039228>If you're up, you might as well do something. Starting with breakfast.
>>36039228>>If you're up, you might as well do something. Starting with breakfast.We are probable pretty hungry right now.
>>36039228>Track down Lann, make some plans to take a job. You missed out the other day.
>>36039228>Track down Lann, make some plans to take a job. You missed out the other day.We can still get our breakfast after making plans, we won't head out immediatly anyway.
>>36039228>Track down Lann, make some plans to take a job. You missed out the other day
>>36039228>>If you're up, you might as well do something. Starting with breakfast.The best part of waking up is a Jin getting big.
>>36039242>Jin's pastebin>Blessing of the Demi-God of NightOh baby.
>>36039511Thats the old one, it hasn't been updatet yet.
Looks like we'll be tracking down Lann!Writing!
>>36039511Since Jin's pretty much turned into a day owl, does that even work anymore?
Well, this is slow.Taking bets on sheszkas next upgrade!
>>36039722Maybe she has blessings of both night and day?
>>36039726She will become bigger, yes. And fluffier, yes.
>>36039722She's a comet, right?That's still night.Maybe she'll be getting ice powers as well
>>36039726Earth or Fire wolf.Must be like Alpha.
>>36039745If she gets ice instead of fire.. she'll cry.
>>36039767REQM said in the last thread she got fire powers and resistance.
>>36039775So, if her evolution doesn't give her anything similar, maybe we should make her a new set of claw-protection and work a fire elemental stone into it?
>>36039749She's guaranteed fire/earth stuff because she'll reflect lyra, right?I don't even know what else wolves could turn into.What kind of wolves are there?
>>36039846I assume she is going to pick up more of our abilities and become some elemental variety.
>>36039846In theory she could turn fully into a giant wolf. But I doubt REQM would do that to us. So either something elemental or just bigger and more powerful forms.I'm just sad that the chance of her picking up ice abilities are pretty much zero with the trait sharing from Lyra.
>>36039846I wish she would become something complementary rather than seeking to emulate the alpha's strength. Speed and stealth are the strengths she brings to the table that we don't have.
>>36039846With her dietary preferance, and Lyras game of choice, she is definitly going to become a Bear dog. Yes, thats actually a thing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bear_dog
>>36040022Its up to us to lead her into that direction, we just need to encourage her to use those.
>>36040022But that's sort of how the evolutionary system for wolves works.
>>36040080They gain traits of their alphas, but that doesn't mean they need to emulate them, they can still use them in different ways.>and then branch into innumerable variations like all othersSo they have the same kind of variety we have.
Raggle braggle, I wake up early for this quest.So I am the most suited to pick actions for sleepylyra.
Isn't she a werewolf now? So she could likely go further down that line.Probably just go bigger for now.
>>36040136She was always a werewolf.
>>36039726Demon dog.Because the mind is a plaything of the body she will become even more flanderized as a petslut
>>36040467Don't get me wrong, I think hellhounds are cool and cute as hell, but they're not exactly what comes to mind first when I think of "petslut".
>>36040501I was thinking more along the lines of oglaf's "hot bitches" with wolf ears and tail.
You let training get away from you, yesterday. Probably the whole 'underground' thing. Without the sun, you can't really tell how long you've been at something.To say nothing about your lack of ability to tell time.In any case, Lann had been asking about working together. With any luck, she won't have left town. Or something.You push yourself up with a yawn, legs unfolding around you. You take your time getting up, pulling your hair out of your face and tying it back, throwing on your clothes.You'll probably have to do something about the hair eventually. Maybe just hack a bit off with the knife. It's just... really long. It's starting to be a pain.With one friend stowed and sleeping, you turn back to the bed, where Jin is modelling her new feathers."I will be borrowing this, yes?""Lyra?"You scoop up the white harpy, dropping her into the slot on your shell, and head for the door."Thank you for having us, yes! We might be back tonight. Or not."Lia shoos you away with one wing."Have a good day, little ones. Try not to make a mess."
>>36040551"Not stay out of trouble?""I was never one for hopeless causes, dear."You laugh, and skitter towards the slowly waking streets. People emerging from their homes, stretching, yawning, sweeping the steps. Starting fires, checking on animals. There's no shortage of things to do in the morning, in any case. Jin still hasn't stopped bouncing in place. She's been quiet so far, though.The guild is open already, warm lights guiding you through the doors. Now that you think of it, you're not sure it closes, anyway. You wave to the waitress, and head for the stairs- The rooms above all share the same door, but there's little temporary plates to show who's living where. You step lightly down the hall (No you don't) and stop in front of the door labelled with your acquaintance's name. You knock carefully and wait.There's a muttered grumbling from within, the sounds of cloth being thrown around, and a barely awake Lann pries the door open a crack, squinting even in the lamplit hallway."Buhwha? Lyra?""Good morning, yes?""One word right, anyway. Whadya need?"She muffles a yawn with one hand, scrubbing tears from her eyes as she waits."Ah- I was... sidetracked, with training, yesterday. So I didn't have the chance to take you up on your offer, yes?""My- My offer? When did I- Oh! The job! Yeah. Uh, gimme a minute, right? I'll get presentable. Dressed, at least."You nod, and the door swings shut with a creak, and the sounds of cloth turn frantic from inside.Jin is humming to herself, a fast little tuneless noise. You can feel her buzzing against your shell. You hope the job is outdoors. If you don't get her into the air sometime soon, she might explode.
>>36040561The door flies open again, and Lann stumbles out, yanking a boot into place and cursing. She manages to wrangle the footwear into submission, and locks her room behind her. You chat as you head back down to the common room."Sorry about yesterday, yes? I pretty much forgot.""Eh," She waves a hand in response. "I didn't even think about it till now. It's fine. Heard you throttled Cliff.""No, that's- Throttling is choking, yes? I just hit him with a spear.""Half the guild was chatting about it," She says with a laugh."Nobody's gonna bet against you anymore.""He wasn't even going to wear armour- I was afraid I was going to kill him if I hit him."You keep up a quiet back and forth till you stand before a board covered in bits of paper. Jobs of all kinds sit before you- contracts for specific monster pieces, hunting , thinning out packs, protection services.Lann yawns again, and you can't stop yourself from echoing it. "Feel free to pick something you like. I pretty much play support when I'm out'n about, so I'll be good with whatever."You take a closer look->Somebody wants a bear's teeth an horns. You're not too sure what the hell kind of bear has horns, but that means you can eat it.>Workers want someone to look out for them while they head to the mine you and Jin cleared out.>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.>Other (?)>Voting will last for 15 after this post- I need to step out and play taxi. I'll post when I get back. My apologies.
>>36040577>>Workers want someone to look out for them while they head to the mine you and Jin cleared out.Becoming the alpha for a wolf pack is tempting, but nah. Let's bug miners.
>>36040577>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.Probably the most useful and best to test Jins new abilities.
>>36040577>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.that bear is tempting.
>>36040577>>Somebody wants a bear's teeth an horns. You're not too sure what the hell kind of bear has horns, but that means you can eat it.we must feed our bear addiction
>>36040577>>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.Wolves play nice, or get taken to obedience school, courtesy of Lyra.Bear Steaks later.
>>36040577>>Somebody wants a bear's teeth an horns. You're not too sure what the hell kind of bear has horns, but that means you can eat it.The big thing please
>>36040577SURVIVAL OF THE SPIDEREST>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.
>>36040577>Somebody wants a bear's teeth an horns. You're not too sure what the hell kind of bear has horns, but that means you can eat it.>>36040628WE CAN STOP WHENEVER WE WANT TO!!!
>>36040577>Workers want someone to look out for them while they head to the mine you and Jin cleared out.I hope we'll get to use earth magic on something.
>>36040647If we can't beat the wolf alpha does that mean Shezka is compelled to leave our pack?
>>36040577>Workers want someone to look out for them while they head to the mine you and Jin cleared out.might As well see what our good deeds have brought, that and excepts for the bear I think we should leave the low level monsters to the fresher adventures.
>>36040577>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.
>>36040681Shezka is a werewolf.These are shit-tier, non-sentient wolves.
>>36040681>implying we would ever lose
>>36040577>>Workers want someone to look out for them while they head to the mine you and Jin cleared out.Also, tell Shez to watch for bear scent. If we happen upon one, we can have a two for one.
>>36040681>can't beat the wolf Kek.But no. The sign didn't say werebeasts. Just normal (possible dire) wolves.
>>36040577>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.Let's get some practice leading our group in fighting multiple opponents, as we've only really been fighting strong, solo opponents...
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>36040577>>Workers want someone to look out for them while they head to the mine you and Jin cleared out.>>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.Both of these are okay with me. So I'll just roll a d2. 1= Mine; 2=Wolves
>>36040577> Workers want someone to check out the mine.Need earth training.
>>36040678>>36040783I think you misunderstood the mission. We supposed to protect them until they reach the mine, not go into the mine.
>>36040577>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.And we get the bear right after. And woe anyone who steals our kill!
>>36040577>Wolves are starting to get aggressive. People think there's a new alpha- Clear them out.maybe shez can get her own little army then
>>36040804One thing inevitably leads into another.
>>36040804I know, but we can still use it outside the mine.
Alright, I'm back and counting! It didn't take as long as I thought, thank god.
Alright, Lyra and co and going to put the boots to wolves!Only Lyra is a giant spider with chitinous blades for feet, and she doesn't wear bootsOh wellWriting!
>>36040577>Workers want someone to look out for them while they head to the mine you and Jin cleared out.CONTRIBUTE TO COMMUNITYDO IT
>>36041036>>36041064Darn, I had to go do business in the toilet room, so I was late.
>>36041095It's okay to say that you were taking a shit.
>>36041241No anon. He was literally doing business in the toilet room. He's a dealer.
"Dealing with wolves sounds easy, yes. And I am getting hungry."Jin nods in agreement."Well, an early start is important, but we can grab something before we go, I guess.""Huh?""What?""What do you mean?""Wha- Breakfast. What else would I be talking about?""Ah. Well, if you're hungry, we can wait, yes.""No- I, you- You said you were hungry!""Oh. I am going to eat the wolves."Lann stares."You're going to... Can you actually do that?""I don't need to cook them, if that is what you are asking.""Huh. And you'd just straight up eat wolves?""I prefer bears, yes. But there is very little in the woods that I have not tried, I think."Lann looks thoughtful as she starts to walk, leading you outside after she tears the notice free from the board."I thought... I dunno, really. Little spiders eat bugs, right?""I think the only bugs big enough for me to eat talk back, yes.""D'you wrap em up and drink them?""If I feel like it. I have been cooking things, lately."You pass the edge of the village without any arguments, the guards waving Lann through without comment."Gods, I thought Cliff was bad... I don't know bloody anything about Arachne, do I?">"Well, why don't you tell me what you do know?">"To start- I am a giant spider.">"I am not even sure what you are, to be honest.">Other (?)
>>36041278At a Chemical Company I worked for a while ago, we used to call the Disposal Facility 'The Shit-House'... He could have had to do an Inspection to make sure that the waste products were correctly disposed of in a safe manner...
>>36041643>"To start- I am a giant spider."If you fagdicks choose a different option, I will be forced to write a very unhappy letter expressing my disappointment.
>>36041643>>"To start- I am a giant spider.">>"I am not even sure what you are, to be honest.""Are you delicious?"
>>36041643>>>"To start- I am a giant spider."cant resist>"Well, why don't you tell me what you do know?"for serious

>>36041643>"Well, why don't you tell me what you do know?">>"To start- I am a giant spider.">>"I am not even sure what you are, to be honest."also since we're asking, what are her skills, so we know what she can do in a fight
>>36041643>"I am not even sure what you are, to be honest.">"To start- I am a giant spider."I had honestly not thought of eating the wolves, somehow I can still be surprised how awesome being a giant spider is.
>>36041643>"To start- I am a giant spider.">"I am not even sure what you are, to be honest."How do you taste... good, yes?
>>36041643>>"Well, why don't you tell me what you do know?">"I am not even sure what you are, to be honest."We can talk about each other
>>36041643>"I am not even sure what you are, to be honest.">"Well, why don't you tell me what you do know?"
>>36041643>"To start- I am a Giant Spider. What would you like to know?">"I am not even sure what you are, to be honest.""I am guessing helf-Elf. I'm also part Elf."
>>36041643>"To start- I am a giant spider.">"Well, why don't you tell me what you do know?">"Here's some basic information about us...
>>36041727>>36041643>"I am guessing helf-Elf. I'm also part Elf."It is this part *rubs ears*
>>36041688>>36041666>Implying we might eat her as we walk into the dark woods together.Let's not do that.
>>36041643>"To start- I am a giant spider.">"Well, why don't you tell me what you do know?"maybe we could reference that bad book on Monster races and how it shouldn't be trusted...
>>36041761Only if she you know.. dies or something.
>>36041761She could always tell us that she's not tasty. She seems trustworthy, so I'm sure we can believe her.
>>36041806Sure! For comparisons!
I see everyone is awake now.and voting for everything.I'll just write that, then.
>>36041862If you want single pluralities make the options more different, since write-ins are rarely popular
>>36041862To help reduce future incidents of ALL THE THINGS. I suggest not putting I am a Giant Spider in the vote options. Just include it automatically. Work it into whatever else we vote for.You know we we'll vote for it anyway.
>>36041806Absolutely. She'll get the message better.
>>36040681>Implying Lyra would ever lose when Fluffbutt and Featherbutt are on the lineShit nigga, Lyra would shift into MAXIMUM OVERSPIDER before letting that happen, and that destroys all of the universe.
>>36041970>hey Lann, let's touch tips
>>36041806>>36041862This is good too. maybe? Yes. We are a giant spider.
We need to wrap and drink these wolves.Also I feel awkward feeding wolves to a wolfgirl.It's like feeding monkeys to a human.HORRIBLY disease ridden.
>>36042229Not really, no.Regular wolves sometimes eat others, although rarely, which has nothing to do with health though.And humans can eat monkeys just fine.
>>36042229>Implying Lyra doesn't intimidate micro organisms into being inert just by existing in the general vicinity.
>>36042229Can we offer some to Lann? If only to get a reaction out of her...We could show off our ability to Cook meat as we cut it thanks to our Forge abilities...
>>36042301We lack spices though, we could carry some back into twon to make a barbeque. Not many adventurers can claim having eaten the cooking of a giant spider.
>>36042325>>36042301I'm sorry, but now I am just imagining serving adventurers coccoons of pre-digested wolf.
>>36042339You know, if it wouldn't be most likely horribly poisonous to them, it'd be a great idea.
Does anyone else love how we just casually confiscated Jin?No argument, we just picked her up and left.
>>36042371>And humans can eat monkeys just fine.She's just lazing around anyway. Jin's also probably safer with Lyra in battle than in the peaceful village but without her.
>>36042365Imagine having liquified rations, ready to eat at a moments notice without needing to cook...
>>36042400Now that she's become fire resistant, there isn't really anything in the village that can really harm her, though.On the other hand, now that she can create fire, time spent not with Lyra greatly increases the risk for everything else burning down.
>>36042432>not liking gogurt, the radical treat
>>36042432It'd be a hit with all adventurers. Protein shakes, easy to store, and in difference to dry meat it keeps all nutrients.
>>36042371No matter how big Jin gets we can still tuck her under our arm and skedaddle. She doesn't care.
>>36042444I think the problem would be more Jin seeking out some danger on her own to become stronger.Its better she goes with Lyra and fights giant monsters, instead of doing it on her own.
>>36042445Tubed Yoghurt is a surprisingly popular choice for parents to put into their child's lunch-box...
>>36042432>>36042445>>36042501Yes, but there's also countries like America that consider pizza to be a vegetable due to the high amount of tomato paste in it, and is for this reason considered an acceptable alternative to vegetables in school lunch.I might have digressed a little, but the point is that "school lunch" or "child's lunch-box" is more often than not a fucking terrible indicator of good ideas.
>>36042461>Decades from now, assuming non-yuri end pfftthahahahaha>Jin is surrounded by her eggs, they are all hatching, her husband looks on with joy at the chance to be a father>Suddenly Lyra breaks down the door, declares birdbutts are made for adventuring and perchin' on spiders>Kidnaps Jin and all her freshly hatched babies to disappear off the face of the world on adventures >Husband looks on in dismay as Jin smiles the entire time
>>36042558 Imagine how long it took until he could actually get to fertilize those eggs wihtout that happening
>>36042558>implying lyra isn't busy dealing with rebellious children
>>36042558>Such is life in spider kingdom
>>36042558I half expect Lyra to be the one to force Jin to stay and take care of her hatchlings but I'm expecting Jin to be a fantastic mother to her chicks. I also like that idea more.
>>36042582>Implying Lyra doesn't carry her children wherever she goes on adventures, and instituted an order where all of Jin's children and Sheszka's children pair up with her own children>>36042558>Implying that wouldn't result in yuri end anyway.
>>36042610Are you saying that Jin can't be a fantastic mother while all her chicks perch on Lyra?Lyra butt = Nest
>>36042613>>36042641one day, lyra collapsed, as she was carrying a whole village.
>>36042641It's probably the easiest solution to have Jin simply build her house directly on spider butt.
>>36042686What do you think the Skull is?
>>36042686> implying Jin hasn't already tucked construction plans on her nest in the skullbutt
>>36042537Thats not an American thing, thats a cheap ass School thing. It's much easier for them to just classify the frozen half cardboard pizza as a vegetable then to pay for somewhat fresh actual vegetables on a regular basis.
>>36042677>implying Lyra won't be strong enough to litrally carry her kingdom on her back.
>>36042705I think the external skull gets retired during the next level up, so Jin will have to construct something more permanent.
We need to go metal spider so that we can forge our butt into a house.That's not something I thought I would ever type.
You laugh as you walk towards the forest's shade."I think it is just that people do not know much about each other, yes?""... What d'you mean?""Ah, Well. I am not even certain what you are, yes?"She blinks, looking surprised."What, really?"You nod."I didn't even think of it like that. Gods.""Hmm. Well, tell me what you do know, yes?""I saw a book, once.""Did you read it?""You know what I mean!"You snicker, and your companion runs a hand through her hair, brushing it back and tucking it behind an ear."Pretty sure it was wrong, is what I'm getting at.""My mother had a book about monsters as well, yes. It was good for laughing, but not much else.""Gah.""Tell me what you have heard, then. The town is probably more reliable, yes?""I guess..."You nod, prompting her forward."Well, I know that arachne are crazy strong. And their silk is worth a ton of money. They ruled the forest, or something, and there was a big war."You continue a few steps in silence, before you turn your head to her."Is... is that it?"She blushes, frowning. "I'm not too sure about anything I've heard, now.""Okay. I will start, then."She nods, watching you."To begin- I am a giant spider."Lann stumbles, making a choking noise. You continue."I have eight legs, yes. Two arms and six eyes. I have fangs, and I am venomous. I have yet to find something I cannot climb."Her mouth is moving, but she can't seem to get anything out. This is fun."I can see in the dark, my legs and claws are very sharp-""I know that stuff!""Oh, I see.""I mean- The physical stuff. I can see your legs, You don't need to tell me you have legs.""What about arms?""You already sai-" She stops, blinking."You're messing with me. I'm being messed with by someone who isn't even a month old.""I am more than a month old, yes."She sighs.
>>36042843"That's not so ba-""I am 32 days old."She groans, and you laugh, your voice carrying through the waking forest."You were right about most of it, yes. I don't think they ruled the forest, though. All the races of the forest lived in a city- That is what teh ruins are.""Huh.""Mhm. What about you, then?""Me?""Yes.""I'm just a half-elf, yeah? Nothing special here.""Oh. Do you live longer? Or have magic, or something?""No magic, or anything like that. Not that I've found, anyway. Pointy ears, better eyes. I age slower. Or it slowed down? I'm almost twenty-nine."You look the girl- The woman, you guess- over. Lann looks more like an eighteen year old. Like someone who has only just finished growing, still young."Huh. I would not have guessed.""Most don't, yeah.""I am part elf, too. A very small part, I think.""Please tell me you didn't eat an elf.""Why, do they taste good?"You give her your best fang-filled smile."I- uh- No. No, definitely not. Absolutely not, never.""What a shame, yes."You walk on, the trees parting into a small meadow, sunlight shining on the long grass."What'd you mean, then?""Hmm?""That you're part elf.""My father is an elf, yes.""What- really?""Mhm. Arachne ears are pointed, but mine and my siblings are much longer than our mothers.""How does that even work?""How does what work?""Your dad is an elf.""Yes.""How did he- Where is the-"She stammers her way through a few half questions while you give your best innocent smile."When you're older. I'll ask when you're older.""People keep saying that.""You'll get used to it."Now that you think about it- All the small animals are avoiding you, aren't they?Comparatively small.Pretty much all the animals.Whatever.>Send out Jin and Sheszka. Have them herd some wolves.>Just have them track them, then spring an ambush.>Ask Lann for a plan.>Other (?)

Just tell her it's Moth-powder and leave her confused.

Rolled 73, 67, 13, 44 = 197 (4d100)>>36043108
Rolled 9, 58, 57, 90 = 214 (4d100)>>36043108
73 67 57 90Alright then, writing!
>>36043169Did we roll for Lann too?
While we're waiting:I choked my way through some more of the LN.It turns out that half-monsters are a thing, just exceptionally rare.They evolve like monsters, and they have classes like humans.They're so strong that people and monsters alike kill them on sight.And everyone likes fire emblem eugenics, right?So what I'm saying is that we need to waifu Lann.
>>36043229 I've been thinking on what kind of things a evolved moth could develop out of the lewd dust. Fertilization spores?
>>36043229Are you saying that Lann is a half-monster, or you want Lyra to put a half-monster in her?
>>36043291The l/u/wd is real!
>>36043229we're already half monster and have no class.So I assume it doesn't work that way.
>>36043301 Definitly the second one.
>>36043291I'm still curious on how this quest would have turned out had we gone the moth route?
>>36043321REQM said we're 'pure' arachne, and that usual interbreeding produces one or the other, with a few traits cropping up.We're not a half elf, Just an arachne with longer ears.
>>36043329That would have been the second most interesting to me.I really hope we can get Nin to follow us on our adventure path.
>>36043321No, we're a monster with a non-monster parent. This is different to a half-monster.Check the AskREQM. If have some details on this.
>>36043291Are moths the ultimate bards?Just think of all their support utility.
>>36043329Probably Tactical Monster Espionage Action. With Nin bugging us all the time about Aria and/or Sara being the Queen.
>>36043301Our father is an elf, so it's tradition.
>>36043329We'd be perching on the spiderbutt.
>>36043329We'd be mad crushing on Aria, assuming Lyra doesn't exist, if not, mad crushing on Lyra.
>>36043329We need to visit the moths more. I want to collect all the possible starting races for our group.
>>36043461Lyra wouldn't exist, so Aria would be the dashing future spider queen taking us on adventure. Poor Aria, we stole her place in the world.
>>36043477When we, I hope we will soon, go looking for the other forest races, Nin will be guaranteed to want to come with us.
>>36043483Nah, not really, the reason Aria is pushing herself so hard is because we are stupidly powerful for our age.
>>36043523If we wouldn't be Lyra, we would be helping her push herself too, so she can protect her moth friend.
>>36043483Lyra really needs to give Aria a hug when she sees her again,
>>36043548> realizing that in a moth!Lyra world Sara would have been traumatized by gnomes.
>>36043511>Travel the forest and meet the other Monster races.Yes.We could invite Lann too. She's an Adventurer living on the edge of a great forest she is forbidden to enter. The curiosity must be eating her alive. Entering as Friend or Family of a monster is probably the only way she'd ever be permitted entry.
>>36043631I would personally prefer to keep our group small And only monsterkin , and I'm not sure if she would be allowed even with us. But if it works all out, why not.
>>36043631>>36043594>>36043366 and bam next adventure and party are all set.
>>36043631speaking of other monster races in the woods, what do you guys think are out there (not including the ones that RQEM has made cannonI'd think Dryads would be found in the woods, or at least wood nymphs... maybe even river nymphs as well seeing how we have lizard people
>>36043732There should definitely be some minotaur folk if you ask me
>>36043691>not sure if she would be allowed even with usElfdad can come and go freely. I think it's cool if you're invited. It's just unwelcome guests that become food.Not sure if she'd even be up for it. We may not hit it off that well and decide not to even offer. But I think we could if we wanted to.
>>36043732Nymphs are generally not what I would consider "monsterkin". Minotaurs might, unless they are the advanced form of something.Bee people, seem likely. Some sort of Naga or Lamia. Maybe slimes?>>36043797Elfdad is mums mate though, that might be different. We could ask Jins mother on that.
>>36043815I am outright surprised we've not run into bee people already.
>>36043732Ant folk would seem likely in one for or another.
>>36043769Minotaurs are a confirmed race. Given that this is the Monster Forest, they probably have a patch somewhere.....Awe Fuck. Thinking of the races in the LN we might meet.... Fuckin' RapeGoblins.RapeGoblins are apparently a thing in this setting.
We should get some sort of scaly folk to round out the chitin/feathers/fur thing we have going now. I second the idea of getting a lamia to sun herself on the spiderbutt.
>>36043862Boy, I can only imagine how Lyra would react to those guys.
>>36043862Kill.Main.BURN MAKE THEM EXTINCT!
>>36043815According to the LN, Mino's are evolutions of Gobs... well Orge's specifically, but part of the Gob evo chain...>>36043797I thought that it was only the Ruins that were off limits, the rest of the forest is open, but rather dangerous to the average traveller...
>>36043923Bah screw the LN this is homebrew now!
>>36043732Looking at that pick your monsterwaifu cyoa thing.Likely candidates, besides the known and likely evolved forms, seem to be:Alraune, Centaur, Dryad, Slime, Echidna(Lamia/naga), Giants(maybe close to the mountains), Beegirls, Minotaur, Salamander(unless they are a Lizardmen variety).
>>36043923No the forests are off-limits too, the merchant got shit for even going there, not just because its dangerous. The ruins are just extra forbidden.
what about The-kreen, you know the mantis people... would they be found in the woods are somewhere else. Don't really know much about them
>>36043862This isn't that setting.It is just very similar with certain things.The light novel / manga is a psychotic losers power fantasy, this setting is about cute spiderbutt going on high adventures.Don't get them mixed up, or I will find some way to hurt you through this great series of tubes.
>>36043923The town is in the Harpies territory because the Harpies let them settle there.According to the old Gate Guard, they are -Allowed- to stay. I get the impression it's by invite only.
>>36043975Oh yeah, Mantis people. Definitly fit there too, seem unlikely to be a variety of anything, so they probably exist.
>>36043986I think REQM said this world is the same as the manga one, we're just on the other side of the planet so we don't have to deal with the little shits bull
>>36043732I'm partial to Selkies, and Alurane or maybe some more exotic things like Engkanto or Kataw.
>>36043943I wonder where manticore fit, probably a werebeast variety?
>>36044012I thought he said it was completely separated, and then further expounded the fact that Lyra is the -only- reincarnate in the setting?
>>36044044No he didn't say that. He said he imagines it both far away from theregion in the LNs and probably a different time too, since monster and humans don't get along at all in the LN.
>>36043870I would like a lamia.>>36043852>>36043854I would like a insect person.>>36043862... I would not like a rape goblin.
>>36044083I don't actually think he said that.I thought he explicitly said the guy doesn't exist.
>>36044113huh, guess we just have to hope the REQM reads these post and gives us a straight answer
>>36044012Also, this is a different time period. Probably set a few hundred years after that bullshit.One day Lyra will pass by an unmarked grave on the side of a road. She will have the sudden, inexplicable, overwhelming urge to open the grave with earthbending, shit on the remains, set them on fire, then re-bury then and sink the entire thing so deep the bones will be consumed by lava."Alpha/Lyra, what's wrong, why did you do that?""It.... It needed to be done. I don't know why, but it was the right thing to do. I think the world is a little better place now, yes."
>>36044113In any case, it's pretty clear that guy won't affect the quest in any shape or form, and it's likely we won't run into rape goblins.Unless we're penetrating them. With our spear.
>>36044113From the Ask.fm: I stripped away all the characters and plot, and set it in my own corner of the world. Admiral Turbo-Sue Von Not-Appearing-In-This-Quest will not be showing up.Aside from that, I've stuffed it full of monstergirls/boys, written up my own history, and I suppose it would be easiest to assume it's set in a different time period- The novels weren't translated far enough, but humans and monsters don't get along in the LN.
You stop, and Lann turns to look at you, a curious expression on her face."I may not have thought this through, yes.""Huh?""It has, ah, not been very long since I grew.""Okay.""I forgot that animals and monsters mostly avoid me now, yes.""What, really?""Yes.""Damn.""Mhmm."You turn, looking back over your shell, and prod at your snoozing wolf."Jin, Sheszka."Jin, if anything, is vibrating that much more now. You think she might be glowing.And for her part, Sheszka is off your back and standing at the ready- already awake and awaiting your orders. You smile."I need you to hunt, yes? There is a wolf pack, in this forest. Gathering. Bring them here."She nods, a feral grin spreading across her face. Jin hops to your arm, nodding slightly. You launch her skyward, and by the time you turn back, your wolf is gone.Lann stares."It is good to have help, yes?""Apparently. I wish my help would follow my orders with a smile.""All you have to do is beat a were-wolf alpha, then.""I'll pass."
>>36044101can we have a Lich friend? or some other form of sentient, non-Vampire, Undead?
>>36044209You shrug, crawling up a tree. "I'm not gonna lie- Seeing someone hang sideways is godsdamn eerie.""No, you look the same as always."You can hear a sigh from behind you as you set about weaving a web- You wrap it through a small pile of trees. By the time you're satisfied, you have something resembling a volleyball net."What's the plan, anyways?""They chase the wolves into the web, and we kill whatever is stupid enough to not get caught, yes.""Wouldn't that make them the smart ones?""They're the ones that have to fight me.""Point taken."You offer the half-elf a hand, lifting her into the tree and dropping her on a branch next to you, and you wait.The sounds of the forest slowly filter back as you hide, animals, birds coming alive. Lann has taken to squatting on a branch, an arrow nocked at the ready. The minutes pass by slowly- And then you hear it.The howls and screeches of a harpy and wolf in pursuit.The opposite edge of the treeline erupts into wolves, furry bodies forming a dark mass that streams across the forest floor. You can pick the alpha out from here with ease: a beast head and shoulders over his fellows, white streaks across his form. He spots the web at the last moment, hauling back- a few of his fellows manage to stay with him, while the rest continue on their path.A few slip beneath or around, fleeing into the woods beyond, but most of the newly formed pack ends up strewn across your trap, twitching and hanging above the forest floor. You ignore them, dropping from the tree and facing down your prey.>Go for it! You're hungry. >Circle the wolves. You can probably scare off the extras.>Delay. You've no doubt Jin and Sheszka will be back in seconds.>Other (?)
>>36044214>can we have a Lich friend? or some other form of sentient, non-Vampire, Undead?A lazy mummy bro who tied his Sarcophagus to spiderbutt?
>>36044214Some lonely Lich we find sitting in her dungeon, bored and frustrated because no one ever visits her despite the fascinating traps and treasures she has assmbled. Definitly
>>36044231>Go for it! You're hungry.
>>36044251Tsundere Lich, angry that Lyra spider cheats her way through all the traps?
>>36044231>Delay. You've no doubt Jin and Sheszka will be back in seconds.
>>36044231>Go for it! You're hungry.Now we do our part of the chase.
>>36044231>Circle the wolves. You can probably scare off the extras.Herd the alpha in against the net. We gotta make sure we get that one.
>>36044296That'd be adorable. And she goes Dere around Sara because finally someone who appreciates her genius.
>>36044231>Circle the wolves. You can probably scare off the extras.
>>36044231>Go for it! You're hungry.Time to train our crowd control.
>>36044231>Other (?)LIGHTENING! Shoot the alpha wolf. We haven't used this yet, I want to test it.
>>36044231>Go for it! You're hungry.Impale the extras on earth spikes, and then go for the alpha.
>>36044407Yes, You are the Lighting Spider God.Smite that would be Alpha.
>>36044330I for one hope we find the shy outcast minotauress
>>36044231>>Circle the wolves. You can probably scare off the extras.
We're going for it!Does anyone else want to throw some goddamned lightning!
>>36044231>"No, you look the same as always."God...God damn it Lyra, I love you so much, so fucking much.The snark, it's outrageous, absolutely outrageous.
>>36044491>Does anyone else want to throw some goddamned lightning!HELL YEAH!

I'd really like to practice that earth magic next time though.
>>36044887I would really like to practice metal magic.
>>36044887I would prefer to concentrate on our earth elemental control, since it would also aid our forging ability.
>>36044960>>36044948>>36044940SURELY THIS BODY IS MADE OF BLADESUNLIMITED SPIDER WORKS.Think about it>Red>Swords>Metal spidah
>>36044992>>36044990>>36044960>>36044948I don't actually want to be metal.We're already sort of metal-magma-y anyway.
>>36045023We don't really need metal spider anyway. Forging spider seems fully sufficient.We can still craft weapons out of the earth in battle, which is a good idea.
>>36045023>Not wanting to be a Blade spiderYou are lame, get away before you infect me with your lameness.I bet you are one of those people that seriously wanted to be an orb spider.
>>36045090>wanted to be an orb spiderWow, no need to be insulting here anon.In all seriousness. Blade spider is way too limited. Crafting spider, which is pretty much what we are right now, is already better than that, since we aren't limited.
>>36045117But it builds up, anon.Being a metal spider would mean that we produce metal webs, and we can grab those metal webs and forge-touch them into ingots, and then forge-touch them into something else.Everything shall be metal.Jin and Sheszka shall be garbed in metal produced from us, forged from us, and woven by us.Our enemies shall drown in a tide of molten metal.
>>36045117>>36045090>not liking orbplebian-tier.
>>36045153We can already draw the metal from the earth anyway. And our metal is only malleable in our hands, so losing our regular spider silk would be a downgrade not a advantage.That sounds like a horribly boring idea, to be honest. I prefer the variety of fire, and earth and steel together with regular spiderbutt things.
>>36045156Orb-butt confirmed.Why don't you go back to sitting in your web all day and not being cool, spherebutt?At least Elle will only become an Orb through sheer lazyness combined with being a masterful weaver.
>>36045194>Elle becoming an orb weaver. >implying that it would happen any time within the next two years.
You step into the clearing, fangs bared and spear held at the ready.The wolves bunch together, forming into a snarling wall of fur and teeth, their alpha standing behind them, eyes following your every move.Wait a second.Your spear can shoot lightning. Lightning!You grin, a fierce declaration of victory. All you have to do is- Uh-Then you-Yeah, Dad didn't actually tell you how to use the spear, did he.You are beginning to see your mother's frustration. He really is kind of scatter-brained."Lyra? Lyra what are you-?"You point the spear at the wolves, shaking it. Nope. Up down. Nope. Twirly. Nope.Maybe if you think about lightning really hard? That's kind of dumb. And there's no way it'd-The flash of light all but blinds you, the scent of ozone coating the clearing and the ear splitting crack of electricity unleashed. You can dimly hear a yelp over the noise.You blink a few times, trying to clear the spots from your eyes. That's gonna take some work to use properly, yeah."Bloody- Gods-"A pair of wolves have been reduced to charred smears. Apparently using lighting on garden variety wolves is overkill.
>>36045217>Implying that lazy non-combatant is even going to survive for two years, instead of motivating us to go on a quest for vengeance
>>36044992Red metal spidah, you say?
>>36045272She is wielding a Lyra-crafted crossbow, she will survive the death of this world with that.
>>36045261The remaining wolves are spread out, disoriented- one staggers sideways, and falls over. It sprouts a pair of arrows seconds later. Honestly, you'd almost forgotten that Lann was an adventurer.You ready yourself, facing down the wolf alpha when a new sound breaks over the trees.A bolt of blue white light breaks from the clouds, one long screech tearing through the air as it rockets to the ground- The alpha turns, head tilting to see the incoming threat- and it connects, blasting the wolf halfway across the field, grinding to a halt in front of you with the terrible sound of bones snapping beneath the force.The wolf doesn't even have the chance to cry out.Jin is sitting atop the body before you, her claws gently smoking as she spreads her wings, looking up at you."Lyra! I am fast!"Sheszka emerges from the trees across the meadow at the same time you hear Lann start to curse.
>>36045290Holy shit jin is a lightning bird
>>36045318comet bird is more accurate
>>36045290>Thats it for the evening!>The thread wound up kind of slow today, my apologies.>Next thread should be monday, 2PM EST!>Comments, questions and concerns answered in thread!
>>36045327But she didn't leave anything for us to eat!
>>36045332How butt is your butt compared to butt that is equal to butt divided by butt but ALSO is rounded by butt into the buttnth power?
>>36045332How overwhelmed is Lann feeling around these month old monsters of death and destruction?
>>36045339We got a entire web full of wolves.
>>36045332so were any of those monsters we were talking about earlier in the thread actually in the woods?
>>36045332Thanks for running REQM
>>36045351Approximately Butt^(Spider)>>36045366She expected you to obliterate the wolves- The lightning surprised her, and she had no idea Jin was a third form harpy. She honestly thought that some harpies are just different colours.>>36045393Thanks for playing!>>36045383Minotaurs are more of a plains type monster. They evolve from goblins, yes, but there's no goblins in the forest.I'm not sure if a Lich would be a human class or a monster, to be honest.I have been supremely tempted to put garter snake Lamia into the woods. Itty bitty snakes.I'm a bit leery of adding more insects to the forest. I'm trying to come up with more unique monsters, like the wendigo things.
>>36045455>[spoilerI have been supremely tempted to put garter snake Lamia into the woods. Itty bitty snakes.[/spoiler]Oh my goodness that would be adorable.
>>36045455Just so you can write a scene about Lyra taking a nap and then waking up with a new addition to her adventurer harem party sleeping underneath her buttskull to absorb the warmth?
>>36045455Itty bitty snek is best snek
>>36045455>Tiny Tiny LamiaYesssssssssssssss. This must happen, REQM.
>>36045455I dunno, little snakes make me worry.Are they still intelligent?How do they not get eaten by everthing?
>>36045528Or wrapped around your arm, nestling into the fur. Or around your neck, or in a pile on top of Sheszka or->>36045543>>36045558-or she evolves and keeps getting bigger but she keeps trying to lie in the same spots->>36045569That's why they aren't in just yet.Intelligence I'd just handwave with magic and whatnot.But how would they survive, especially in the forest? There's no end of carnivorous small creatures.If they show up, it'll likely be elsewhere in the world.
>>36045455Lann being a half-elf reminded me of something I was wondering about.Does Elfdad have any living relatives he is close with?
>>36045597Obviously they live near the swamp and survive by ducking into the exposed roots of the trees.Obviously.Sneks like warmth, but they also like wet, and feeling secure.
>>36045601ElfDad has family in the elven capital.No, they have no idea he married an arachne.His mother would be scandalized, his sister would think it's hilarious, his dad wouldn't care and his grandfather would think it was great, because arachne still rule the forest, right?
>>36045654>Sneks like warmth, and wet, and tight spacesfyLyra has all of this in one spot.
>>36045597tiny snake survival would likely be either with some kind of symbyotic relationship with something, be is a particular type of plant which is favoured by the prey of the little snakes so the plant 'protects' the snakes from the larger predators... or they have developed some kind of camouflage ability or pack one hell of a punch...
>>36045680We should visit elf capitol."Hello, we are your granddaughter. We are a giant spider."
>>36045754Have to visit the dwarf capital first to get MAXIMUM FORGE going.
>>36045769So we can clank up in our dwarven forged full armor? I can dig it.>>36045597>But how would they survive, especially in the forest? There's no end of carnivorous small creatures.Probably the same way tiny snakes survive? Only also adding that they're intelligent? Hell, they'd probably be mean sons of bitches."Hoi, wha'cha think ya doin', stompin' up 'n down me turf? Why don'cha come down here so I can bite ya in tha gob, ya wanka'!"
>>36045680Is his mom monster racist or something?
>>36045718tiny snakes + thorn bush alraunes the perfect symbiosis
>>36045911Don't you mean.Tiny sneks + Spiderbutt = Perfect symbiosis?
>>36045911>>36045906>>36045718>>36045654I'll give it some thought, and look into snake biology.>>36045908Dad is a born mage- while more common amongst elves, they're not that common. His mother had certain marital expectations. Specifically, that he would raise the families reputation. He already scandalized her by leaving home to dig through ruins.
>>36045908Might have more to do with her son marrying some crazy chick that cares about nothing but where to get the next hit (of combat) and literally lives in in the wilderness.
>>36045996I'm sure that tales of our Adventures and Escapades will make Grandma Elf proud...
>>36045996>Specifically, that he would raise the families reputation.He's the husband of a badass arachne and father to the future Queen. That's reputatious enough.
>>36045996Your eldest granddaughter being able to create vulcanoes on demand can't be that bad for your reputation!Sure, it might not be the reputation she's looking for, but causing abject terror wherever you go can be nice, too!
>>36045996Is this Jin's song now?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgzGwKwLmgM
I endorse tinysnake.
Okay, what jerkoff suggested in the ask.fm to have mana batteries in Jin's and Sheszka's sleepy cubby eyeholes?
>>36046996implying they wouldnt still curl up on top of them
Anyone want to try to "tame" the wolves and have them listen to Shezka?
>>36046375As long as she gets bigger after a long enough time
