"For man to comprehend, one needs to remove man, leaving only comprehension. For behold, man's mind is like a blindfold in front of his eyes". --His Eminence Madu, High Sage of the Crystal Empire, explaining the workings of alchemy and cultivation in regards to Namun-al-temaya-idushan also called "World Without End" mantraI am Maria of House Antioch, chosen of the All-Mother. Well, right now I'm just a witch trying to find my room. Which might not be that easy since my friends -cause that's what they are- and I are a little, uhm, let's say confused after trying out the tasty but really strong herbs in Liliana brought along. They're pretty good for relaxing though I'm glad I didn't take too much. I mean hey someone has to stay sane and keep watch over the others.Liliana seems to be handling it well, but Helena is unusually quiet and walking unsteadily, her green-blue eyes half-closed, full lips -strange for someone her age, but somehow it seems to work- working soundlessly, speaking words only she can hear as she stumbles alongside us. The light-that-is-no-light surrounding her still flickers and pulses, its invisible rays reminding me of the spring time sun that still seems so very, very far away. Somehow, the lost look makes her seem even cuter somehow, though really I need to pay more attention to what's going on around us. Hmm, I had something, I had something for this… didn't I? Ugh, this stuff is good but for remembering things it's really terri-- AH!I slowly inhale, imagining my feet as roots drawing strenght from the soil, the energy rising higher and higher up my spine until it reaches the top of my head. 'Light that illumines us, Thought that strenghtens us, will that guides us, bestow clarity and truth so that my Way be sure'. With a forcefull push I hurl the air through my half-closed lips, my head feeling like a short intense burt of flame just cleaned away the haze hanging over it.1/2
I blink, finding Liliana way too interested again. She really does notice everything, doesn't she? Just then, there's a crash and we both turn just in time to see Helena down on the floor, glaring indignantly at a pillar that seems to have come between her and her path. Help her up and go a bit slower. She'll be able to handle it. Give her to Liliana. She's got more experience with this. Take her in the middle. Might as well. Carry her, this is the only way to be sure.2/2
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36814375> Give her to Liliana. She's got more experience with this.
>>36814375>[x] Take her in the middle. Might as well.Yaaaay it's a new thread!
>>36814399oops, left my dice on from another thread
>>36814375> Carry her, this is the only way to be sure.We've no time for being silly Helena
>>36814375>[x] Ask her if she's feeling under the weather enough to take a piggyback-ride.Superior method of transportation.
>>36814367>I slowly inhale, imagining my feet as roots drawing strenght from the soil, the energy rising higher and higher up my spine until it reaches the top of my head.

With a forcefull push I hurl the air through my half-closed lips, my head feeling like a short intense burt of flame just cleaned away the haze hanging over it.I wish that worked IRL. I could be high/drunk any time of the day and just clear it up!
>>36814357>Stress: 0% (Status effect: Yulemai's Mantle)We're so fucking high right now.>>36814375[X] Carry her, this is the only way to be sure.That's allowed, right?
>>36814375>[X] Carry her, this is the only way to be sure.
>>36814446>We're so fucking high right now.We seem to only be moderately high, as opposed to Helena.Also man this thread's activity died fast.
>>36814716because we voted and are just waiting for random discussions to tide us over before the next post
>>36814375> Carry her, this is the only way to be sure.
So.How do we think Eriadne will react to three drugged-out little girls stumbling into her room?
>>36814716>>36814446Maria really needs to tell her friends about this great new thing!
>>36814787She'll ask us to pass the good shit of course.
>>36814831That would be funny, though I can't quite imagine that.
>>36814413>>36814422>>36814422I hope Helena being a fat fuck doesn't affect Maria's ability to carry her detrimentally.
>>36814901You take that back anon! Helena just has some baby pudge left over!
>>36814922Anon please. The Senra will need to teach her discipline or this will get out of hand.
>>36814971A fat loli is a healthy loli.
>>36814971I'm sure the Senra has a northern miracle cure for excess calories.
>>36815480Does it involve getting under the sheets?
>>36814375>[ ] Take her in the middle. Might as well.
Is Hex writing or?
I wonder if that rite is for intoxication or concentration in general.
>>36816302Good question anon.
>>36816302Probably intoxication. She's been trying to purge her confusion ever since we returned to her viewpoint and it's not been working.
>>36816302Intoxication and forcing yourself to get up by purging sleepiness from the system. It's especially used during shift change because you can perform it within a minute and get fired up enough on your way to your post to look like something presentable once you arrive. It's not exactly long-term but it helps a lot, and during investigation it gives the guard an edge even if he matches his host drink for drink.>>36814429Focusing exercises do work, just not to that extent.>>36816060Had to run after posting but I'll be back soon.
There is an alarming lack of dragons for quite a while now. I am most displeased.
>>36816591It's okay, we're about to give Eri a terrible impression of our friend.
Bump for Hex!
>>36819124Hex is dead.
>>36819767Sobriety killed him. Seriously he writes better drunk off his ass.
>>36814901She's not that fat. She's barely even chubby!
>>36820239It's okay, I'm sure Liliana can make her feel good about her body...
>>36820413She's so great.
>>36820413>>36820981Pls do not molest the Helena.
>>36820239FAT!!>>36819785You're in luck, for this mind/body/soul entity is currently in a state of high intoxication. Please proceed with caution!>>36816591Dragons shall be met, my friend. For without dragon, how can there be witches?>[X] I'm not a robot
>>36821208Quests are like cars, it's more fun while drunk but you gotta watch out for collateral damage.
>>36821550The anon is wise beyond his years. Anyways, writing right now. Thank you for your patience, as always.
>>36822139Why does Maria like older people so much more than those her age?
>>36822215She has more experience being around Pa and other adults from doing guard stuff back home.
>>36822215See >>36822326, kids just aren't really part of her, uh... experience matrix, does that make sense? I mean, she's never really been a kid herself and she's almost always been doing adult stuff so it's just kind of strange being confronted with people so much, much more squishy and inexperienced than yourself. There's a certain power gap between her and people her age/younger that doesn't exist between people older than her, so ergo she can relate better to the latter group because she feels she's on their level more.Of course, clerics are a whole different matter and are -scientifically, practically and philosophically- not human which complicates matters quite a bit.Please support Maria in her new experiences!!
>>36822407> Maria is so sub she can't bear the thought of being the stronger member in a relationship> this is why she goes for older partners and friends
>>36822407>Of course, clerics are a whole different matter and are -scientifically, practically and philosophically- not human which complicates matters quite a bit.?
>>36822826A cleric receives the Mystery of All-Communion upon completing the soulforge ritual in which he/she travels to their deity's realm in the spirit. The journey changes them, removing a little of their soul/spirit, instead putting in a small piece of divine power.This alteration is the reason for many bodily and mental changes, including the light Maria sees around Liliana and feels around Helena right now.In essence, all soulforged clerics /are/ their deity to some capacity.While at times it has them treated with awe some -such as Liliana- have a fairly casual relationship to the whole matter.
>>36823200>removing a little of their soul/spirit, instead putting in a small piece of divine power.That... didn't hurt, right?
>>36822457There is also that. You're very lewd, you know.
>>36826877Not as lewd as Liliana.
>>36822457>>36826877That makes too much sense.
Unexpected circumstances forced me to leave before the post could be finished. I'm on my phone right now, but I'll resume running before the day is out. Please forgive the additional delay.
>>36833211Alright, take care Hex.
>>36833211I'll allow it.You have to give me your firstborn as penance though.
>>36833211No mercy for the traitor!
>>36833211Why is Helena such a slut?
>>36833279You'll have to fight XS for that.
>>36834086She's a good girl.
Oh, it's nearly dead.
>>36836731Thanks for grabbing the thread anon!
Boards really moving fast this morning.
http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/121830382914> IS the contract thing permanent?Depends on the conditions. You need to formulate a concrete goal achievable with the pre-contract abilities of both parties and stipulate what you wanna do.as exemplified when you first saw it:"We swear under sun and father, moon and mother, by all the gods dead and alive to deliver upon our enemies the weight of their sins, making their fates as legend and their pains rival those of deepest hell "So it was. So it is. So it shall be, till the end of time". TL;DR: They're now both bound to hunt everyone responsible for the bombings to extinction. Once that's done, the contract loses its potency and the spiritual signatures disengage. Before that, the "So it was. So it is. So it shall be, till the end of time" stipulation of the spell essentially creates a stable paradox where there is no conceivable state of being where the contract does not exist. Since, for all intents and purposes, it's as real and immutable as the passage of time itself and has always existed within all thinkable possibilities. >>36834086> slutInigomontoya.jpg>>36833279Anon please, get in line.
>>36839642>Anon please, get in line.Hey, these houses don't burn themselves.
>>36840524I'm not sure anyone would want Hexer and XS' love child. Especially since XS is the father.
>>36842085> crazy> amicable> loves to worldbuild> interested in triviaWhy not?
>>36842085If it's XS, it can't be helped.
>>36842085The real question is, who's update speed would the child inherit?
>>36843010> Hexer's worldbuilding> XS sanity>aunt Callow's update speed
>>36843204>good>???>badI see no pattern.
>>36843278Welcome to genetics.
So no update today I guess.
Sorry, no warm pictures. Hopefully this will do.
>>36851253Uh. They're both girls.
>>36851656It's an easy mistake to make.Just look at Maria and Eriadne.
>>36851656Huh. Looks like a dude with boobs. Thanks, Japan.
>>36852727Some ladies do end up with a bit of man face.Just ask Maria she's pretty ugly as well.
>>36853079I'd rather not. She probably knows how worthless she is. Any more would be just cruel.
>>36853088I wouldn't worry about it. Maria knows that she's going to die alone and unloved but at least she can help someone when she does it.
>>36843204XS creates fluff. She's added lots of fluff to various world building in passing that's been posted on 1d4chan and in /tg/.
>>36853079>Just ask Maria she's pretty ugly as well.nah, she's just like Hex, completely unable to take any compliment and can never not think bad things about themself despite all evidence to the contrary.>>36853106anon pls, Maria will live forever with Eri as they discover the secrets to immortality lie in true love
>>36853151Anon you just don't understand how useless and worthless and pathetic she is.The only presence she should have in Eri's life is from a distance by making sure nothing bad happens to her.Anything more is just selfish and cruel.
>>36853151> true love> anyone loving Maria who isn't her parentsRight, that seems legit.
>>36853172Hey Beta Timeline.Fuck off.
>>36853184Nah Beta!Maria just hates Eri.Self-hating and slightly sucidal Maria is all this timeline.
>>36853184Sounds just like this TL, anon.
>>36853205A cat would say that.Fuck off cat.
>>36853208Nah, Cat just thinks that there's such a thing as one last chance too many.
>>36853208No, seriously Beta!Maria is self-confident violent and cruel. She's also power hungry and a cat.
If we combined Maria's kindness and RHP's arrogance we'd have a pretty balanced girl.
>>36853307We'd just have that one preachy asshole who thinks they're doing a favor by shoving their ideals on you.
>>36852727No, it's because Japan draws young men as girls without boobs.
>>36852727To be fair, she really is intended to be mannish looking.
>>36853217>She's also power hungry and a cat.I guess that explains why this TL Maria purrs.
>>36854846I think that has more to do with the fact that she fucking adorable.
>>36859075Hey, your grimderp timeline self being part of the Atomic Option class is adorable too.
>>36859151Probably even worse.
>>36859100Especially when she looses her shit after finding out you married that bitch she hates.
And I'm out of warm pictures.
>>36864013You can find warmth, if only you just look.
Incoming blog/whining:Feeling horribly drained and generally blocked lately, hence the lack of updates so far. There just seems to be nothing there. Or rather, there's some things, but I've no idea how to do them. This is infinitely confusing and I'm sorry it takes this form. I promise to work on getting back on track somehow.>>36864013> left knee merging into the other side>>36860698There's nothing more adorable than a Mad Cat Maria Massacre.
>>36865902>> left knee merging into the other sidethats perspective and the shinguard messing with you
>>36865902>There's nothing more adorable than a Mad Cat Maria Massacre.She just can't handle the OTP.
>>36866069Also I'm confused.
>>36865838So are we bumping with gay girls now?
>>36866989Only if they're warm.
>>36870202So folder of gay girls asleep created.People really like to draw Alice and Marisa sleeping together it seems.
Now you are just needlessly extending the suffering. Let it go.
[X] Carry her, this is the only way to be sure.Nothing to be done about it, there's only so much time and she seems completely lost in whatever world the strange herb seems to have brought her to. I sigh, more out of reflex than genuine annoyance I realize. Really, It's nice being of service like this. I help the blonde up, noticing that the circlet of white, yellow and blue flowers atop her head is still in place. Strange it's almost like it's part of her hair now, but really even I know I'm in no way sober right so that's probably one of those strange things you just kind of think when you're smoking. Strange is a pretty strange word isn't it? Strange. Stu-ra-ange. Sturyangeeee- Damn, it's already coming back. Distract yourself, distract yourself."Hold on right, alright?" I say, a bit worried that Helena's response is more like a blurry half-mumble. She really is totally and completely out of it, huh?I half-turn my head and pinch her nose for a second. "Are you okay? I can't have you fall, Helena!" She grins, opening her eyes."Aaaallll fiiiiine, Maria. Don't worry, Athra protects. Take it easy okay?" I just nod and start walking, Liliana again looking way too amused. Oof, Helena's kind of heavy for her size… let's see… 1/2
>>36874748>>36875012SEEHAVE FAITH ANON
>>36875012Don't drop the fatass Maria.
>>36875012Maria I thought you were tough how can you have trouble lifting Helena of all people? Is it the drugs? It's the drug isn't it. Dammit Maria!
>>36875111Helena is just that fat.
>>36875143No! She's just a little bit chubby and light as a cherub! The pop culture ones not the biblical.
'Within the Way there is no border. Within the Way there is no end. Within the Way there is but strength, and wisdom and joy everlasting…" I focus, imagining myself bathed in golden light, no longer just myself but part of The Way's infinite Harmony, and just like that, the load of her body seems to lighten quite a bit.<Triggered Tier 1 Atavism skill: <Body of Faith>: Maria's Will overrules her physical limits temporarily, allowing her to become stronger and quicker than her gender, age and size should allow. Caution: Distractions such as pain interfere with most Will Disciplines. A present the resource depleted by using Will is hidden, but as a rule of thumb the repeat use of them within a small time frame yields diminishing returns> "You're strooong!" Helena says, way too loudly causing me to flinch a little. Really she should consider herself lucky to be carried and not shout into people's ear. That's not how you say thanks. Ah anyways, she's young and not quite here so it's okay. Wait, why does her breath smell like a rain cloud? Why do I even know what a rain cloud smells like? Right, right, need to hurry.I set off to a jog, the despicable layout of the castle slightly less terrible now, though I still curse the stairs hidden at the most insane places possible. Whoever designed this must have intended this to be more fortress than school. Seriously, were you TRYING to make this a complete maze?My thoughts are interrupted by finding myself in front of our door. Thinking better than to knock this time -why did I think that was a good idea, I'm really terrible at this sometimes- I just push the door open, only to stumble backwards when some strange shape darts towards us through the air, screeching, only a quick impression of claws and a mouth giving a hint at the thing's nature.

>>36876095What's [C]? Tell me your secrets, Anon.
Body of Faith seems like some weird sort of not magic or cleric spell. Care to enlighten a new guy where that comes from?
>>36876895It's a Will-based power. Check here for more info on that: https://medium.com/@ATaleOfWitches/dialogues-on-magic-truth-82cf8b090847Basically it's a minor magic available to anyone with enough discipline and willpower
>>36876944>https://medium.com/@ATaleOfWitches/dialogues-on-magic-truth-82cf8b090847That's neat but weird.
>>36879814Yeah, magic and will are pretty weird in this setting.
Gonna take a little longer, but I intend to finish before the 24 hour mark latest.>>36876895>Care to enlighten a new guy where that comes from?It's a Will ability/Discipline. Disciplines are distinguished from Spells in that they use things people can do and improve on them. They are, in essence, things you use when you don't really /have/ powers but need a boost anyways.It's especially an important field of study to those with a natural disadvantage on the battle field such as women and children which makes it a staple among second-generation guard with the opportunity to train from childhood.>>36876944Aye, though in-universe they're very much not considered magic.>>36876095>I've already done it like 3 times this year.Years almost out; Go watch it some more.>>36876132The show Joker Quest is based on. One of the most underrated anime of 2011 that I feel really could do with more recognition.
>>36883713Alright Hex, I have to sleep anyway.
>>36883713You're learning from callow...
>>36883713>Go watch it some more.Fine, fine, fine, I'll put that right after finishing my MM rewatch on my priority list.It looks like I'll need something to save Christmas anyways after the way most things this season are turning out, so I can watch it then.
>>36865902>left knee merging into the other sideThanks for ruining it.
>>36891450Its totally not, Hex is just blind and can't into perspective
>>36891465Too mean!>>36891450It can't be helped.>>36884188Good anon.>>36883912>You're learning from callow...In which way?Anyways, writing resumes, please maintain warmth.
Why is this thread so gay
>>36895317Anon ran out of burning buildings to post.
>>36895317Prenatal testosterone fluctuations and/or various epigenetic factors and/or socialization.
>>36901419Har.I'm guessing update tomorrow?
>>36901419I just know you have like twenty studies on this just for this quest.
>>36901546Of course.He has to make Maria believable afterall.
>>36875291Clerics are weird.>>36901524It's already tomorrow here and I'll have to leave early, so the most logical thing to do is staying awake and finishing it.>>36901546>just for this quest.That's where you'd be wrong, ha! Though I'm honestly more interested in what causes bisexuality since a simple Yes/No switch being flipped seems much less complex than someone shrugging and going "Why choose?", on the genetic level.
>>36901652>so the most logical thing to do is staying awake and finishing it.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>36901652>It's already tomorrow here and I'll have to leave early, so the most logical thing to do is staying awake and finishing it.That's one way to look at it I suppose...
Still awake Hex? What house was Sora again?
>>36909048>Still awake Hex?Yes. Not that it helps anyone much...>What house was Sora again?Nefesh.
>>36909090>Nefesh.I'll update it now.Adventure card revoked.Want to give us twins as well?
>>36909241>>36909241> Taking things from SoraWhoaa anon, whoooaaa. Twins are probably in their own special twin house. They're privileged like that.
>>36910416Hilarious. I guess this means you won't give us their caste either then.Have you slept at all? I mean it's not like you were going to get the update out today and all your doing is making even less likely to get it tomorrow when you burn yourself out.
>>36911010Sorry, sorry, that was terrible. Nah, they're Terra, the nerds.> spoiler3 hours or something in the late evening. Usually meditating leaves me refreshed but heh probably didn't do it right. Eh, I'd rather burn out than hover on the brink again. Gotta reset my sleep cycle anyway, and a sleep deprived Hex writes better than a just kinda tired Hex. /blog
>>36911739So no caste for Sora and no house for the Twins.Awesome!Also you had the twins as Aglol the first time.So do we have two Terra castes now?I mean it's kind of redundant because then the Twins and Eri basically fill the same role.Unless you're aiming for some kind of powerful caster vs technical caster thing.
>>36911861> spoilerUgh. Hex and consistency. Technical vs powerful? Heh, maybe yes but also not quite. Remember, sometimes power is defined by who has the most powerful friends.
>>36914020So are we sticking with the old or new answer then?>sometimes power is defined by who has the most powerful friends.That's great and all but redundant friends don't get used.
>>36915432Akazu isn't redundant.
>>36915541That's not the point I'm trying to make.If Eri can cast a greater variety of magic and the magic she casts is more powerful than the twins why would we ever use the twins?They occupy pretty much the same party role after all.
>>36915567Because we're not megagaming fun nazis
>>36915583Right yeah okay.But why not just make Eri have more spells and the twins have more powerful magic that way everyone has a proper use?
>>36915593Because we're going to give them all 'proper use', we're not some min maxing OCD D&D'er, we're Maria.
>>36915632You're not paying attention to my point.When they were Argol they had their own niche to fulfil but putting in the same niche as Eri will just end up with one overshadowing the other.
>>36915664Anon I'm only going off of what we know as we've played as Maria so I have no idea what the fuck you are talking about.Hexer, fuck you and your ask.fm shit, write the fucking quest for Pastafari's sake.
>>36915664That's assuming Eri being Dragonblood and them being Very Real won't completely change the dynamics anyway. Which is assuming too much because this quest runs on character backgrounds and story.
>>36915706Okay, everyone in the group so far has their own niche that they specialise in.There's Maria and a melee defender, Sora as a melee attacker,Eva as an artificer and kind of support role,Helena as a healer,Liliana as a bard/diplomancer,Eri as a loremaster and being a Terra based spellcaster.The twins used to be Agol spellcaster now they're in the same niche as Eri.>Hexer, fuck you and your ask.fm shit, write the fucking quest for Pastafari's sake.This stuff has been almost entirely in quest.>>36915747Yeah, which is why I'm confused that Hex moved them into the same cast rather than keeping them separate.It also means we don't have someone from Agol assumeing Sora is in Mars caste.
>>36915832>This stuff has been almost entirely in quest.>The twins used to be Agol spellcaster now they're in the same niche as Eri.Where did that bit come from then?
>>36915891That is literally the only detail that came out when I was filling in infoboxes on the wiki.
>>36915906He shouldn't need you to make a wiki for him to convey all this stuff, it should come out through the quest, yet it seems like 95% of everything he's written for this quest has been outside of the actual quest.
>>36915970Because it takes him three days to write a couple hundred words and at this rate most of it is just extra details that wouldn't come up for years anyway.
>>36915970I should add that most of the stuff that gets discussed on ask.fm is character hypotheticals and common knowledge about the setting.There have been some more important things like small amounts on information about character backgrounds that are kind of important and some information about witch society but beyond that it's mostly unimportant details or stuff that is ancient history in the setting.A fair amount of the stuff revealed is also implied to be false information that gets spread to the population as well.
>>36917356>common knowledge about the setting.Nothing is 'common knowledge' when we've not even finished the second day and don't know what our own room looks like.
>>36917375I mean common knowledge inside the setting.Like what the countries are and such.It mostly things that would just turn into awkward exposition dumps if Hex tried to cram them in.
>>36917428>Like what the countries are and such.which hasn't been explained in the story at all
>>36917449Well. it would be awkward if someone just walk up to us and told us what the countries are wouldn't it?
>>36917449You'll want to read the second part of his post. I for one am glad the exposition isn't completely footed by pastebin like in Psychic rebel. If you want to complain about OOC exposition read that.
>>36917498Well it would seem that that particular quest is at one extreme end of the spectrum and this on the opposite.
>>36917686So together they'd form the percent being?
>>36917686The thing is a lot of this stuff would require Maria and the others the break character in order to have an exposition dump.It's the kind of stuff that either all of them know because everyone at their age already knows it or stuff that Maria know that she has had no reason to think or talk about.
Speaking about exposition, the way Liliana reacted to Maria saying what her religion was was kinda snobby.
>>36917826Well, she's a cleric of the dominant religion while Maria's is a more regional thing.It's kind of expected. Political correctness isn't really a thing in the world after all.
>>36917826>>36917826Maria is literally a crazy heretic cultist in her eyes. Honestly that kind of thing gets addressed in fantasy way too little. Everyone is just best buds and super tolerant of every religious notion.
>>36917912>tfw everyone in the cast but Helena and Liliana are heretics.
>>36917912It's hard to take offense at another religion in a fantasy setting because those gods exist. So it's more a question of ideological differences.
>>36906285I have no words for how cute this is.>>36901652The variety of answers that that particular question concerning bisexuality gets is incredibly varied. In most of the ones I've known personally, however, they have the singualr quality of never judging any book by it's cover, and pretty much ignoring covers entirely. It's as if the qualities they find attractive bypass their visual centers entirely - they can appreciate and admire appearances outside of relationships, but when it comes to lovers, that simply doesn't even factor in.

>>36921594>and one of the people in the quest scene who seem to think that way.Well, I'm pretty sure this guy is the one from spookygee who has been complaining about it for a while now.
>>36921708What were they saying?
>>36921708I don't think she's ever read it.
>>36921594I lack the ability be judgmental about other people's preferences. It would go beyond hypocrisy.It's also worth noting that most non-experimentatious bisexuals seem to be very heavily into either friend-with-benefits-and-nothing-deeper-with-no-hard-feelings-if-you-find-someone-to-commit-to, or steadfastly adverse to open relationships. They enjoy the pleasure of being non-committal, or they're totally committed and will work like dogs to keep the relationship stable and healthy. Contrary to popular belief, bisexuals rarely cheat -either they're not in a relationship in the first place and are just playing, or they're so devoted to the relationship that cheating isn't merely not an option but anathema to their worldview.As a result, I can very much see Eva's harem being totally asexual, while she looks for a husband/wife to take care of them with.
>>36921725Just how the majority of the quest is extra information and how it ruins the quest because everything isn't explained in retarded detail in character.>>36921744I guess that's possible as well. It's impossible to tell either way being anonymous and all.
>>36921757>As a result, I can very much see Eva's harem being totally asexual, while she looks for a husband/wife to take care of them with.You're usually insightful, but I bet you can't answer the following: Why is the Senra so great?
>>36921757> Liliana> asexual anything
>>36921855And Helena too for that matter. They're the most sexualized characters in the quest so far.That's not really saying much though.
>>36921785Because she's nice. That's all. Just nice. Except when it's time to Not Be Nice. Then she's got the firm Spanking ready.
>>36921893Maybe I'm too innocent, but I'm not really feeling lewdness from her. On the contrary she seems disquieted by sexual stuff when it appears in her mind.
>>36921925Yeah, she's not lewd or anything just sexualized. You know like checking everybody out for their child making potential and having to fight back all the sex thoughts and stuff.
>>36921784>Just how the majority of the quest is extra information and how it ruins the quest because everything isn't explained in retarded detail in character.That would be the worst though I could have gone without some of the character backgrounds being spoiled. Seriously who gives a fuck what Viha's old currency was IC?
>>36921959>I could have gone without some of the character backgrounds being spoiled.I definitely agree here. It's why I started on the character stuff first just so that it's easy to find for people.>Seriously who gives a fuck what Viha's old currency was IC?That's why I've found the whole thing people have against it so weird.Like how is Hex meant to shoehorn in what the countries governments are like and stuff.It would be like an American and an Englishman meeting and the Englishman just starts explaining how the commonwealth works.It would just be jarring and out fo character.
>>36925403Is that a fuckin' Game&Watch?Do they still make those
>>36925434I don't think so it dosen't have the clam shell.
>>36921757>Contrary to popular belief, bisexuals rarely cheat -either they're not in a relationship in the first place and are just playing [...]If anything, the issue seems to be a matter of miscommunication more often than not. One-sided attachment and all that.>>36921542Interesting perspective. Thanks.>>36917826You gotta remember ((>>36917843)), and while she's not exactly human she's still a rather young girl. Please support Liliana in becoming more open minded!!>>36915432Old answer.Anyways, writing resumes, apologies for passing out again but my sleep deprivation skills are not quite refined enough yet.Also, this must be the 15th time it's told me I'm a robot.
>>36931704>Also, this must be the 15th time it's told me I'm a robot......I know what it is. You're Marvin. You can't fool me any longer.
>>36932040Please don't reveal secret identities this casually. They're secret for a reason!
bedtime bump, keep the thread warm and cosy anons
Good morning threadMorning for clapistan at least
From the sounds of things we're not going to get another update this thread.
>>36940615It's only been 3 days since the last one anon, don't get greedy now.
>>36941839Is it just me or are Hexer and Callow's writing breakdowns usually in-sync?
>>36941839I'm just saying this thread isn't going to last another day and because Hex was an idiot and decided to forgo sleep to write only to throw it all out and start re-writing the next day there's no chance we're getting an update today.
