You've made it halfway across the godsdamn forest, dragging probably several hundred kilograms of people with you. Not that they're dead weight or anything, you were literally towing the boat.There was dragging going on, is what you're trying to say.And now, not even a days walk from your goal, something, some monster, is trying to get in your way. _________________________________________________________You stand over your waking friends lividly glowing with anger- The patterns across your legs and hands burning near white, flickering cracks of molten fury dancing across your chitin. There's a resounding crack as the thing tries to pull itself further into the tree- Or tries to drag the tree down to it's level. You don't know, don't care. It's in your way. It's threatening your family. You level an iridescent spear and ready yourself.>Defence! Stab anything that gets near your nest!>Offence! Drive it back! You need room to get everyone down!>All out! Climb all over this bastard and show it your teeth!>Other (?)

>>36918130> Raise an Earth pillar beneath the tree to get us out of his immediate reach> Ready the lightning spear> Get little sis to ready her stars> He gets one shout of warning before we slam him for everything we are worth
>>36918130>All out! Climb all over this bastard and show it your teeth!
>>36918130>Defence! Stab anything that gets near your nest!We should probably defend until everyone else has woken up and someone got Sheszka out of the danger zone.
>>36918130>All out! Climb all over this bastard and show it your teeth!We need to buy the others time to get ready.
>>36918130>>All out! Climb all over this bastard and show it your teeth!LAW OF THE WILD
>>36918204It's a giant standing rioght in front of our improvised nest.Any attack on our current position is liable to bring the thing crashing down, whether we defend adequatly or not.This means we need to either force it to defend or direct its attention elsewhere by climbing out of the enst and on it.
>>36918130>>All out! Climb all over this bastard and show it your teeth!Teach this guy it doesn't matter how huge you might be, don't ever fuck with giant spiders.
>>36918245I fear if we climb out we have less ability to keep it from crashing into the tree and toppling the nest.And we can keep it away for those seconds it takes for everyone to get out.
It looks like we have engaged maximum spider!Please give me 3d100!
>>36918130>Other (?)Is it clearly hostile or might it just be curious?If it just seems curious, say hello, swat its nors if it gets to close.If it's hostile>Offence! Drive it back! You need room to get everyone down!Tell Sara to lower the boat while we hold it off.

Looking like 62 85 82!Writing!
>>36918304yfw it's a giant herbivore and was just giving us a sniff because it's curious.
>>36918356Then it was a dumb herbivore. You don't stick your nose into a spider nest.
>>36918370>>36918356ONE of these days, we will fight a giant plant monster.And we'll be so dissapointed when we try to eat it.Except for jin.
>>36918396You mean nin I think
>>36918409Their names are one letter apart, I will never stop making this mistake.
>>36918356>>36918370>YFW it turns out to be one of the healers we are looking for.
>>36918420Those got skulls on their heads, we would recognize them.
Rolled 81, 41, 44 = 166 (3d100)>>36918356It growled at us.You don't growl at Her Highness the Crimson Guardian Lyra Niallasdottir of Firescarn, Thunderbreaker and Bane of Scales, Bone Crusher, Destroyer of Magic, Slayer of Beasts, Master of the Forge, Shaper of Earth, Weilder of Lighting and Caller of fire. Rebuilder of the Lost, Restorer of the Ancient, Spearwielder, Dungeonbreaker and Friend of Oakring.It tends to end poorly.
>>36918356It roared at us. That's an invitation for mortal combat in forest speech anon.
Rolled 31, 39, 71 = 141 (3d100)>>36918495Also, to ask where the bathroom is, but we cannot afford doubt here. It is huge. Therefore it has huge guts! RIP AND TEAR!
>>36918495>It roared at usWell, its eyes widened and it growled when we went for our spear. That's it.Not exactly a declaration of war. Might still be hostile but Lyra will feel the SillySpider if she picked a fight with something like this for nothing.
You don't even think about it. You howl a warcry and throw yourself out of the nest, hurtling towards the monster.There's a moment of vertigo as you legs claw the air, chitin clicking uselessly-And then you collide, skidding across and down the monster's hide. It's not like climbing a tree. Not at all. Your legs dig in, drawing blood and making the creature flinch away, forcing another growl past it's curled lips. One massive hand, three fingers tipped in claws, swings towards you- an open handed slap, brushing away a pest.You are an Arachne. You meet the hand with your spear, Punching straight into the palm and catching it on the crossguard, easily holding the hand at bay. A howl of pain, and the fingers start to close, furiously seeking you out, and you answer with a blast of lightning, the creatures arm spasming, flying open and pulling away. You push forward, upward, clambering over tensing muscles and protruding spikes of bone. You can see your friends in the corner of your eye, Sara working hard to drop people to the forest floor- The branches below the boat are twisted and broken, and it's only your web holding it up now.>Make a mess as you go.>Speed for the skull! Nothing lives long without a head.>Bring it down. >Other (?)
>>36918908>Bring it down.
>>36918908>Make a mess as you go.We're not really hungry or anything, so all we're doing here is trying to keep the monster off of our friends.so, you know, might as well have a brawl.
>>36918908>Bring it down. Little sis needs XP Lyra!
>>36918908>Bring it down. Trip it up, and tie it down with webs. Whether it started it or not, you dont go making a mess in another monsters territory, especially if youre there to ask for help.
>>36918908>>Bring it down.
>>36918908>Speed for the skull! Nothing lives long without a head.
>>36918908>Skitter to the back of its neck.>Jam spear in at base of spine.>LIGHTENING.>Take some cutlets for breakfast.
>>36918908>Make a mess as you go.Birigning something of this size down before our friends have sure footing is a horrible idea.And killing it immediately has the same issues.
>>36918908>Bring it down. >Bite while you're at it.Do we use earth/lava to help?
>>36918908I have no idea what this thing's physiology is.> Go for the head while screaming at it to stay away from our family> Be prepared to throw an earth wall in his way if it lunges at them
>>36918951We're not in the Wendigo territory and 'make a mess as you go' doesn't mean making a mess of the area, but carving up the monster while we climb around it.
>>36918908>Make a mess as you go.
>>36918908> Bring it down> Lava under the front legs and belly> Earth pillar punch to the throat to force him back from the others
This is the part where the monster falls down?Throw out suggestions and gimme 2d100!(Webs? Earth? Stabbing?)

>>36919108stab the base of the spine, move the earth underneath to destabilize, and have whatever earth magic (90 for lava, right?) waiting for the impact.
Rolled 69, 88 = 157 (2d100)>>36919103Webs and Stabbing of course!Our two prime strengths.
71 and 86not bad Lyra, not bad at all.
71 86 and no agreements whatsoever!Hahaha!Writing!
>>36919103Stab it at the base of the spine and fry its brain with lightening. Use Earthbending to make sure it falls away from our friends and family.
>>36919103REQM, the hell does this thing look like? We could be fighting an eel with arms for all I know. Does it have legs? Arms? More than one eye?We can't effectively fight what we cannot see.
>>36919205At this point Lyra doesn't really see much either, beyond the limbs we get described.
>>36919205>We can't effectively fight what we cannot seeMaybe that's the point, since it's night, we're under the canopy, and this thing is so big that we're too close to be able to see it all.
>>36919238We can use fire to light up the area around us.
>>36919293Just to clarify, I mean summon fire, not light the area on fire which we would have to put out later.
>>36919293Which we neither did nor would change much about the fact that we'd have to stand 20m away from the thing without any obstacles between us to get a full view of it.We didn't get a good enough view yet, so we don't know what it looks like yet.
>>36919224Just saying, the confusion and complete lack of direction or consensus is because we have no idea what this thing is or how we can fight it. Otherwise, solid plans would win out.We know it can moan, but we don't know what it's mouth looks like. We know it has claws, but not how it stands.As such, we can't say how to immobilize or bring it down. Zapping it along the spine seems like the only thing we really know might work, since electrocuting the arm forced it to relax, indicating an underlying nervous system structure.Of course, we only get ONE lightning blast per day, and now that's gone. Really wish we would have taken the all day, everyday stun rod as opposed to the one shot ranged bombard.
>>36919324True, we don't know how many legs it has, or if it even has legs...
>>36919403>ONE lightning blast per dayThree, actually.And I agree we should try to get a better look, but sofar we haven't, and thats the reason for a lack of information, hopefully once Sara gets on the case we can shed light on the issue.
>>36919419I'd rather she murder something with the light.
>>36919437Either she charges up another Genkidama and we get light that way, or we would be better served by having some of her Star Blessing lights circle it so Lann can start shooting.
Have we considered pouring molten hot magma all over the giant?Because goddamn, that would take care of him (or his ability to move around) pretty quickly.
>>36919462It takes some time for us to call up magma.
>>36919462Oh, if we fall off it I'm totally for the magma idea. Let's set some crap on fire.>>36919462Our righteous indignation will make it go faster.
>>36919473It'd be worth it, though. Just have Sara and Jin guide it towards defcon fuckzone zero and unleash the molten hot fury of the magma.
>>36919462>>36919510I don't really want to wreck the forest of our future hosts like that. Magma has a tendency to set things on fire.Not to mention all the wrecking we would be doing in the process of calling it up.
>>36919518I think if we take the effort to make a chasm with molten stone in it, we might as well just drop the thing in it.
>>36919526If there are monsters about we aren't IN their section of forest yet. This is the monstery bit. They probably don't care if we burn a piece of this. And we're by a river. We can put it out
>>36919462>>36919473i honestly wish we couldn't period.we are plenty powerful without magma powers, and it will trivialize any fight we do use it on, which is boring as hell, sort of like using cheat codes on the first playthrough of a game.
>>36919555I would still be disinclined to destroy a part of a forest before requesting something from a race of druids unless we really have to.While callin gup Magma to drown our enemies in it is really cool, its not by far the only thing we can do.
>>36919584>and it will trivialize any fight we do use it onIt really doesn't. It takes us about as much time to call magma as it takes our sister to call up her giant death star.We had to be perfectly still and concentrate to do it.Assuming we even succeed high enough on a earth control roll, although that concern is probably pointless with this quest.
>>36919584It takes a while to call up, so it'd delegate us to the Spirit Bomb role for a bit. But I just want to do it once.I mean, come on man. Liquid molten hot magma.
>>36919626>>36919640which really does not fit the character at all, because it requires us, the players, to have no input/actions for 2-3 updates.
Wonder how no one has mentioned this sofarZach and Ephram>Level 100: Which one won the race? It's a tie! Neck and Neck! The competition continues.Unless I missed that.
>>36919772I would assume all the charging up would be done in one update that just covers a longer period of time.But sitting still for so long while fighting goes on isn't really Lyra.
>>36919775oh shit.We didn't even notice!I want to pay more attention to our brothers, but they're always off doing boy things.
>>36919775Bit disappointed in Elle that she didn't evolve before them, she had a pretty massive headstart.
Your friends are on the ground and you are a few stories up, climbing on a monster. The thing roars again, rolling- well, shoulders probably, but you can't see enough of it to be sure. It's trying it's level best to throw you off, but your feet are firmly embedded in it's flesh.An idea of what you're fighting is in order, you think. You skitter across it's back, spear in one hand, the other already preparing webbing. You call, and the earth answers, however dimly. All the ingredients of a successful monster demolition. You sling your webbing towards a nearby tree- it sticks reliably enough, and you loop it around your forearm twice with a flick of your wrist. The web twangs audibly as it extends as far as it can, and you slide sideways on the monster, drawing furrows as you brace yourself against its movement. Your eyes close a half second and you will the forest floor to mud, the monster already starting to stumble, collapsing into the tree you've chosen. Clawed hands reach out, taking hold of the bark and holding itself up, and you spin your spear downwards, driving the point towards what you hope is a spine. Your will meets the magic of your weapon, and lightning arcs across the haft again, sending limbs jerking and flailing, the rush of wind catching your hair as the beast slams into the ground.Your earth magic had nothing to do with that tremor.Jin has taken to the sky- and Sara has already begun to fill it with stars, each orb casting shadows in every direction, light blazing inthe clustered forest.Lann has her arrows in hand and a worried expression on her face- You can see Sheszka's bundle neatly tucked at the bottom of your tree.>Drop down, deal with this at ground level.>Stay on the monster. And>Find some joints! Stabbity stab stab.>I'm going to bury you.>Magma. Molten stone, fresh from the earth's core!>Other (?)
>>36919796We did notice, or I did.Last thread. We started speculating too.
>>36919775>>36919796I noticed it in the pastebin but we've had zero interaction with them for a few threads now. So it didn't come up.In fact.... when was the last time we spoke to them?
>>36919795exactly.Especially when our friends/family are in danger, its pretty much the opposite of what seems to drive our character (protect our friends/family)>>36919821>Stay on the monster.>Find some joints! Stabbity stab stab.
>>36919796>but they're always off doing boy thingsI don't think hunting counts as a boy thing when all in the family are giant spiders.>>36919821>Drop down, deal with this at ground level.>I'm going to bury you.
>>36919821>Stay on the monster. >Find some joints! Stabbity stab stab.
>>36919821>Find some joints! Stabbity stab stab.>Drop down, deal with this at ground level.>>36919842I could seee it as last resort if Sheszka were healthy and could off-tank, so to speak.
>>36919821>>Stay on the monster.>Go for the neck. Stabbity stab stab.
>>36919821>>Drop down, deal with this at ground level.>>Find some joints! Stabbity stab stab.I was going to cover in earth but that would spoil everyone else.>>36919836>In fact.... when was the last time we spoke to them?We don't really talk to them ever. We just acknowledge that they exist.
>>36919821>Stay on the monster. >Magma. Molten stone, fresh from the earth's core!we never use magma...all our other teammates have ranged attack anyways.
>>36919836offscreen family dinners.>>36919850Synchronized hunting is obviously a boy-sport. Or something.I have no opinion on this particular vote.
>>36919836I think Lyra talked to them off-screen. But on-screen, I think the last time was, a long time ago.I think when we went hunting with them.To bef air though, they keep themselves away from their sisters on their own, so its not completly our fault.
>>36919821> Use earth and stone to lock a limb to the ground.> Get as many as we can, then move out of range for our next move.> Lava might be neat
>>36919870The only time i can see it as appropriate in-character is as a gimmick for a boss fight that is somehow immune to most things like physical attacks or specifically extra vulnerable to magma.
>>36919821>Stay on the monster.>Find some joints! Stabbity stab stab.
>>36919941I always find, in most situations where we could use magma, we would be better served by just dropping the monster into the chasm we make for calling it up. I think the only exception would be if we want to attack something really really huge.
>>36919821>Drop down, deal with this at ground level.Draw it away from our family>Magma. Molten stone, fresh from the earth's core!BURN IT
I just had a thought, what if the other entrance to the underground comes out somewhere near here? What if we are accidentally fighting Seranthis?
>>36920016Seranthis doesn't have hands.
>>36919821>Stay on the monster.>Magma. Molten stone, fresh from the earth's core!
>>36919821>>36919850Changing to>Find some joints! Stabbity stab stab.
>>36920016Doubt it. instead of an exoskeleton, it's flesh and hands.

>>36920133Would people stop trying to poison our spear already?It's inconvenient as fuck to do that in the middle of a battle, not going to last long enough to do that before a battle, completely incompatible with discharging lightning or using our fire control to heat our spear up and our battles don't last long enough for poison to do much anyways.>>36920135I'd be angry at you for not posting earlier, but this way we at least don't get totally overshadowed by our party-members.
82 75 61 53 93Lets do this!Writing!
>>36920212Its not a terrible idea to poison our spear when fighting something we don't want to eat.You never know how long a fight lasts, and our poison is really potent stuff so it can definitly have effect with just a few stabs.Just in this case it probably doesn't work since we are constantly in motion, and we don't know yet if we want to eat this.
>>36920212>I'd be angry at you for not posting earlier, but this way we at least don't get totally overshadowed by our party-members.But I WANT our party to be awesome.
>>36920212Always poison the spear.Fighting a crab? Poison the spear.Charging a magma attack? Poison the spear. Making dinner? Poison the spear. Posioning the spear? Posion the spear.

Poison the spear.>And get killed because you are standing around poisoning your spear instead of charging your magma attack..Making dinner? Poison the spear.>And have the poison dry hours before you fight something.Posioning the spear? Posion the spear.>And have the universe implode.
>>36920519Its not like it takes a lot of time to poison our spear, its literally just spitting on it.You might want to re-read how it worked when we did it.
>>36920278we can eat our own poison.its other people who aren't arachne who are in danger.I would worry about applying it, could end up stabbing ourselves in the mouth as we are not exactly on stable ground.also, we could just bite it and inject poison directly. of course with its massive size poison is gonna be very dilute and of limited effectiveness.Also, also, the char sheet says we automatically poison our weapons (since a while ago) unless specifically stated otherwise.
>>36920879>Also, also, the char sheet says we automatically poison our weapons (since a while ago) unless specifically stated otherwise.No it doesn't state that.It says we have learned and started to do that.Our weapons are by default unpoisoned because poisoned food animals would be dangerous for Jin and Sheszka.
There's a monster down, and now you have backup. You hurry over muscles and bone, making your way to the creature's shoulder.It's next to its head, for sure this is a shoulder.The beast twists it's head, one maddened eye glaring towards you. Is this thing a bear? A giant goddamn bear. What is it with you and bears, anyway.Maybe Mom was right.It snarls, and you turn your attention back to the work at hand, slamming your spear into the bears shoulder joint, tearing muscle and scarring bone.It has the weirdest paws you have ever seen.Sara and Jin, having sufficiently lit the forest, have turned their attentions to murdering its inhabitants. Stars streak through the liquid night, impacting with tiny claps and sizzling noises, burning through the air at a rate you can't comprehend.Lann has pulled herself back to the tree, standing guard over Sheszka- and Nin apparently.You tear your spear free and drive it down again, keeping your feet while the beast flails in pain, one arm limp already.>Keep it up!>Go for the neck.>Set things on fire. Precook the bear.>Other (?)
>>36920920>Go for the neck.
>>36920920>Other (?)Have an internal crisis about what is with us and bears.And then I guess>Go for the neck.because we need to wrap this bear fight up and heal our puppy.
>>36920920>>Go for the neck.Finish it!
>>36920879Its just that poisoning our weapons is part of arachne combat methods, so we advanced in those when we started thinking of doing that.We do not poison our weapons by default, and we had minor discussion on that point in another fight where we got clarified by REQM that our poison could harm Jin and Sheszka if ingested by way of poisened flesh.
>>36920920>Go for the neck.>Set it on fire a bit.Yummy bear in my tummy.
>>36920920>Go for the neck.>Vow to let Mom never know about this
>>36920920>>Go for the neck.Don't cook the fur. We could make a bitching cloak out of it.

Food related delays.
>>36921298>Food related delays.Your prey putting up a good fight?
>>36921340Against a giant spider? I doubt it.More likely some foodsacks started leaking.
>>36921340everyone knows you need to wait 30 minutes for food to steep before drinking it.
>>36921384They keep on hiding in tiny spaces the giant spider can't reach.
reqm's probably just frying up the bear for his harpy, wolf, moth, elf, and tiny lamia waifus.
>>36921384>Against a giant spider? I doubt it.We all know this is a self insert quest. REQM clearly has a taste for bear and enjoys a challenging hunt. Why else would a Giant Spider live in Canada? Canadian Grizzlies a big and tough. They could probably make him work for it.
>>36921460It all makes sense. He lives in the frozen wastes his favored prey are most plentiful.
We need to attempt new recipes of melted food. Spices, blends of meat, varying levels of cooked/smoked, sky is the limit.Then we can get people to try our nutrient shakes using our intimidating presence.
Back and writing!
>>36921668>Then we can get people to try our nutrient shakesAnon, we make our meat slurpies by injecting our venom into the meat. It would poison any non-Arachne we gave it to.Although, I do like the idea of trying different spices and blends of meat. Wrap a little bear, wolf and rabbit in a single bundle and desolve them together. See what it tastes like!
>>36921763I thought venom was distinctly different from the digestive juices spiders melt stuff with.Or am I misinformed?
>>36921763On the other hand, other arachne might like the smoothies. Maybe even throw some veggies in there for flavouring.
>>36921803You are misinformed in most cases.I think there might be spiders where that is the case, of the poison not being responsible for that, but I can't think of one right now.In Lyras case, her poison is explicitly what she melts her food with, as we know from the fight with the kobolds.
>>36921803As far as I know, the venom does the job.>>36921836>Maybe even throw some veggiesI have no idea if vegetable matter would break down the same way as animal protein. We'll have to wrap and inject a few vegies as test cases. See what we end up with.
>>36921883>>36921803As addition to this, Lyra and Arachne are kinda weird for spiders, since "normally" spiders melt their food by vomiting their digestive fluid all over their prey, which I'm fairly sure Lyra does not.
It barely takes any steps at all to reach the beast's neck.Comparative steps, anyway. You have eight legs, you take more steps on technicality. You brace yourself over it, legs splayed against shoulder and skull alike to keep you steady. And then you stab. Your first strike fails to find anything fatal. Or it wasn't deep enough. It isn't important.You pull it free and try again.And again.Your spear punches fist-sized holes across the bear's neck, perforating it's skin without halt. You hit something, and the beast shudders beneath you. You pull your spear free and catch a gout of blood with your face.Spitting and cursing, you try to wipe your face clean as you slide down the bear to the forest floor. You upend your shield over your head and turn it on, pouring cool water across your face and hair, rubbing frantically to clean yourself.Your friends mostly laugh.Which happens a lot, now that you think about it.Other people need to be less fortunate in ways that are okay for you to laugh about, because the last week or so has been kind of awful on your part.Lann smiles."Bears, huh?"Sara nods."Bears."Jin cocks her head to one side, and Nin looks on in confusion."It is always bears, isn't it?""It attacked us!""Maybe they can tell, yes?""Tell what.""That you are some sort of bear-slayer.""I am not a bear-slayer!"Nin nods solemnly."Lyra, I think you might need new hobbies. Hunting bears is unfitting for a quee-""You little- Get over here!""Heee!""Get down here!""Milady, I think you might be frustrated-""I will show you frustrated you ridiculous-""Ah. Lyra. We are still in the forest. At night. Beside a very large pile of meat.""Ah."The group looks, as one, to the fallen and bleeding form of the bear.>Maybe we should get back up the tree?>Mark the tree so we can find it, Pick a new one.>No time like the present to run from shadows in the dark! (Continue trip)>Other (?)
>>36921998>Forget running. Midnight snack. Make a barbecue plateI want to see the predators that try to prey on two giant spiders feasting on a massive bear corpse
>>36921998>Mark the tree so we can find it, Pick a new one.
>>36922035That was just the cub.
>>36921998Lyra will be fighting old foes with new faces in the future.Like a giant horseshoe crab that is more defense oriented then it's cousin Lyra killed.
>>36921998>Get the boat out of the tree before it falls.>Fill with meat, continue.
>>36921998>>Mark the tree so we can find it, Pick a new one.Consume bear meat to ensure sufficient quantities of silk are produced.
>>36922060GOOD!Maybe the next one is a challenge.Our wolf is hungry.
>>36921998Are we near dawn? If yes;>Continue tripIf it's still the middle of the night;>Take some bear cutlets fro breakfast and go find another tree to rest in until morning.Also, >Bear-SlayerYou need to add a new title to the pastebin. You bring it upon yourself REQM.
>>36922094>You need to add a new title to the pastebin.We already got "Slayer-of-beasts" to cover that.
>Mark the tree so we can find it, Pick a new one.just sort of hide out for a bit.
>>36922094>>36922114I still prefer Ursa Bane so we can get a bit more specificity in there
>>36921998>>Forget running. Midnight snack. Make a barbecue plateLet's make a bear cloak.>"Milady, I think you might be frustrated-">"I will show you frustrated you ridiculous-"Nin, you are far too young to do anything about your Queen's frustration.
>>36922136We already got Bane of Scales. And that one we can't change since its among the titles from our lvl comments.You will have to think of something different.
>>36921998>>No time like the present to run from shadows in the dark! (Continue trip)
>>36922063Just wait, some day in the future we are going to fight Ursa Major and Ursa Minor.
>>36922114"Slayer of Beasts" is a catch-all. We need something specific to reflect our Bear Addict- THAT WE TOTALLY DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM AND CAN STOP ANY TIME WE WANT. AND THEY FIND US HALF THE TIME ANYWAY!Yeah, something specific to bears. Not that we have a bear problem or anything. Nope. Not at all.
We're getting a new tree!And also some bear meat.Writing!
>>36921998Congratulations! You have proven your giant spider superiority to one of the 4 giant bears of the forest! Collect the whole set!>X Giant Bear>O Giant Shadow Bear>O Giant Armored Bear>O GIant Armored Shadow Bear
>>36922209Celestial Bears. Aww snap!We're gonna fight Fenrir, Hati, and Skoll. And Celestial Crab Cancer too.
So how many levels is Nin going to get just by watching Lyra do her bear thing?
>>36922240>The first step of the ritual has been completed>Lifeblood spilled amongst the trees>The bear god's return is nigh!>Ia Ia bear ftaghn!
>>36922240You forgot the Giant Water Bear we will inevitably find when going into the lake
>>36921998> Take as much choice meat as we can carry. > Erect an earth dome over some or sink it for later> Trap the remains> Up a tree much further away.Alternately, > Earth barricade> Lava moat> Eat in peace while the beasts rage outside
>>36922290If there's a bear god we're going to kill it.We're going to kill it and eat it.
>>36922240Can you bear the weight of this path?
>>36922329Most likely. Given our final evolution is a divine/mythical form, what else would we hunt when we are the God-Spider?
>>36922330Good idea. Drive off any monster that comes close with a bearrage of unbearable puns.
>>36922379I miss Ssen.
>>36922379I know it sounds like a bad idea. But just bear with me for a bit. I'm sure this plan will bear fruit, if only bearly.
>>36922296>Giant Water BearDude, tardigrades are fucking indestructable.
>>36922520Yeah, but time moves on and shit.
>>36922520Man, you had to go and remind me of that. Did the QM ever come back? I've glanced at the Legacy threads a few times, looks like it's only held up by like three followers.
>>36922618Nah, the QM never came back.It's a shame.But we got this one now, which is cool.
>>36922618I do remember him saying that he was going on a brake after his last quest because it lasted much longer then he planned. He said he'd come back one day but when that is I haven't a clue
>>36922618Maybe. He never used a trip, so you wouldn't be able to tell anyway.Kingfisher did nothing wrong
>>36922618Legacy never caught my attention really, though I enjoyed the hell out of the original. I love this quest for different reasons.
Your spear heats in your hands, glowing cherry red- you take a few quick steps to the tree containing your boat and slash.A charred 'X' is seared into the truck, defacing bark and wood alike.You nod to yourself, and turn back to your friends."Take some meat, yes? Don't let all of it go to waste."Lann nods, heading for the corpse, but Jin lingers."Are bears your fire?"You tuck the harpy under one arm as she giggles, heading for your kill.It doesn't take much in the way of effort to hack a few sizeable steaks free, and a little webbing goes a long way when it comes to carrying bloody steaks and not making a giant mess.With everyone packed, you gesture to Lann, and she heads off into the dark, searching for new tree.The moon illuminates the forest where it can, peering through thick branches, revealing massive roots, giant bushes and more.You skip a few trees that look lived in, and ignore anything that has it's lower branches torn clear. You want sleep, not another fight. Regardless of what your tittering moth and harpy say.Lann points out a clean looking tree, and you all speed across the ground towards it- You're first by a long shot, with no Sheszka to compete. You trail a web line into the foliage, and haul up the less vertically inclined of your friends one you're safe above.Sara sets about clearing space and weaving something like a giant hammock- or maybe a cocoon. In any case, no one's going to be falling out.You pile in together, cuddling in one giant pile. It isn't long before sleep takes you- Adrenaline notwithstanding, you are a growing spider, and you need your sleep.You can practically hear Nin's voice in your head making snide comments.Parts of you are growing, anyway.You're not sure if you sighed out loud or not, but your eyes are heavy and your friends are warm.
>>36922807That's it for the evening!There will not be a thursday session this week.Saturday is likely! 2pm EST.Comments, questions, concerns, answered in thread!
>>36922807>Parts of you are growing, anyway.Aww man, are we going through puberty with no mom to fluster?I guess Lann will have to do.
>>36922807>"Are bears your fire?"She knows what lights our fire. Girls who make fun of us.Good game!
>>36922856Holy shit, I just realized.Lann is the only adult in a party full of monster girls about to hit puberty.
>>36922835Thanks for running, and merry Christmas to you.
>>36922835Thanks for running, as always REQM.
>>36922876And they'll all imprint on her when they go through puberty. It's like baby chicks and stuff.
>>36922876We are currently in the midst of puberty, or did you forget the entire scene with Jin discovering Lyras budding chest?
>>36922876That was clearly her plan all along, afterall, elves are quick to recognize lewdness.We can just hope she is up to the task.
>>36922912Ah, I did actually forget about that.
>>36922835Thanks for running.
>>36922856You've been in the middle of puberty for a little while now!>>36922862>>36922888>>36922898Thanks for playing!
>>36922835awww.. no thursday :( Well, Happy christmas and a merry New year REQM!
>>36922930Note how the number of our companions doubled since that scene.
>>36922950>>36922935Thanks for playing!And a Merry Christmas to everyone!Whatever holiday you decide to celebrate, I hope you have a good one.
I wonder if Lann is going to have to explain the harpys and the bees to everyone.Oh jeez, I can't imagine what would happen when the topic of "Feminine hygiene" comes up.
>>36923003>Lyra faces her most preferred foe.LIES AND SLANDER! WE DO NOT HAVE A BEAR PROBLEM, WE COULD STOP ANY DAY! Thanks for running, and Merry Christmas
>>36923037Hopefully it doesn't.Though it is good to fluster mom.
>>36923037Actually I don't think Lyra, Jin and Nin will have to deal with that at all.All of them lay eggs anyway, so they don't have really human reproductive organs.
>>36923037>>36923076Everyone but shezka lays eggs, so we won't have to deal with THAT type of feminine issues.
>>36923116lann doesn't count.
>>36923130Wait, you mean elves don't lay eggs?
>>36923157you'd have to ask lann.
>>36923178Elves have to lay eggs. We hatched from an egg and our dad is an elf. There's no other explanation.
>>36923207That makes sense to me. We have to ask Lann how to lay eggs, since Mom won't explain it.
>>36923003Lann character sheet when?
On the next episode of re:monster-Dog healing and asking elves if they lay eggs.
Reminder that Nin has yet to discover her new capacity for "Adult" dust.
>>36922552But that doesn't mean that they can't be eaten.
>>36921998>It barely takes any steps at all to reach the beast's neck.don't you mean, it bearly takes any steps
