You're days from home, in a section of the woods that puts your own to shame in terms of 'giant monster infestation', you're more than a little hungry and the boat you sailed in on is buried. Somewhere.And the day is already looking up!You can't keep the smile off your face as you walk. Sheszka is safe. You're surrounded by friends and family. There's less monstes in the daytime. And the rest of the trip is even downstream! You won't have to pull the boat.You hum a little as you walk, letting the tune buzz through the air. You'd skip, but you're not sure how. Or if it's possible. It doesn't really work for people with more than two legs, does it? Spider skipping would be something like hopping, or bouncing rather than-"Lyra?""Hm hmm hmm hmm- Nin? Yes?"Her arms tighten, and she whispers quietly."Aren't you worried? About what he said? The city and the-"You reach a hand up, over your shoulder, letting the moth's hair run through your fingers, stroking her head.>Not really.>A little, yes.>I am thinking that a wendigo's opinion of a city might be a bit biased, yes?>Other (?)

>>37201620>>I am thinking that a wendigo's opinion of a city might be a bit biased, yes?Then launch into a detailed explanation of our plan to dominate through head pats
>>37201620>>Not really.>>I am thinking that a wendigo's opinion of a city might be a bit biased, yes?
>>37201620>Not really.He's probably right.We don't 'have' to build a city for a safe forest.Also, Lann's charsheet>Flight: Rank 0Okay.
>>37201620>Not really."It's okay Nin. The city was not really important. The important thing is the idea. The idea of a united forest. The different races living together in peace.That was the Queens great accomplishment.The idea can live on in other ways. A forest can be united without the races needing to share a single city."
>>37201620>Other (?)Just because one city fell, doesn't mean all other attempts at civilization will.Also shut up I'm not becoming queen!
>>37201620>Not really.>The city wasn't the important part. It was the safe forest. And we don't need a city for that. Nor does every city need to look the same.
>>37201665>Clothing: Standard stuff, made from whatever she could get cheap.That' can't stand.
>>37201620>>37201665Changing to those>>37201727>>37201751Of the city not having been the important part.
>>37201771All she needs to do is mention it while elle's about.I'm sure she'd love another human(ish) test model.
>>37201771Elle to the rescue!I'm sorry Lann
>>37201794>>37201806I'm pretty sure at this point Lann is getting used to being molested by spiders
Wendigo opinion ratings plummet across arachne readership!Writing!
>>37201897But he was right!Down with non-monsterkin centric architecture!
>>37201897Hey, I like wendigos just fine.It's just all their prophecy laden words literally bounce off of my spider ears.>>37201853Really, we could make her clothes too, but they'd not be as good.We always need more weaving practice.
>>37201897>Spider newspaperGet on it REQM
>>37201924>We always need more weaving practice.Webweaving is luckily a different skill then Web Crafting. We can give her one of our blankets though.So she remembers Lyra when going to sleep.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>37201921We don't hate them, after all they saved Shezska. We just don't believe in their wiser-than-thou attitude.After all, we came from a different world that they (probably) don't even know exists
>>37201960we also need web CRAFTING practice.Also, do we know about any holidays ICly? Like that one fall rememberance thing?I want to get the city fixed up a bit before that.
>>37201968I don't remember any wiser-than-though attitude from him.He didn't even seem particularly mad at the arachne for messing up their prophecies. It just seemed like a fact to him.
So where is Campaign Anon?
>>37201977Considering what we now know, that alot of monsters didn't want or liked the city in the first place, its probably better it stays a ruin.Maybe fix up the statues, as reminder of the unity.
>>37202038Better to just fix the harpy, arachne and moth statue. Pretty sure they wouldn't like seeing the lizardmen one.
>>37201631Lanns sheet:>Clothing: Standard stuff, made from whatever she could get cheap.We should make her something. We made all our other friends stuff.
>>37202038I'd rather get it fixed up and not use it than not fix it.
>>37202069Why take the effort to rebuild it, when you don't use it? We rebuild it enough to allow Arachne into the underground portion.
>>37202069>"The failures of the past need only be kept in mind, children. Not dwelt upon. You will find no solace there."
>>37202087To be a nice surprise for the other arachne when they come in to hold rememberance.Whether they use it or not, it's nice to do.One of those holiday special christmas miracle things.>>37202107Shut up, it's fun.
>>37202119>To be a nice surprise for the other arachne when they come in to hold rememberance.Not sure if its a nice surprise. That place has some bitter history to them. We don't even know if most arachne would want that.Mom isn't very indicative of the average arachne.
>>37202139Well, that's just an unfounded assumption.They could also think it's a really cool thing to do.
>>37202170Well yes. Just as assuming they would want to see it rebuild.I doubt we were the only arachne with earth magic in the last few centuries.
>>37202186About time someone did the charity work of fixing the place up, then.
>>37202170>They could also think it's a really cool thing to do.Its been six centuries.Something tells me they aren't all that enthusiastic about it.How about we first actually meet other arachne and get their view on things?
>>37202186>>37202215>>37202219actually, the assumption they would like it IS founded on arachne we've already met.I mean, you might have an argument if we ever met other arachne who had a dissenting opinion, but we haven't.
>>37202235>the assumption they would like it IS founded on arachne we've already metWhich is Mom, who is explicitly atypical for a arachne.And contrary evidence is the fact they haven't made effort to rebuild it in the last six centuries.
>>37202257They've also made no effort to make web highways to help the less combatative races.Therefore, it must be a terrible idea they all hate, right? That's the assumption you're making here.
>>37202272Except I'm not making any assumption about that they would hate it. I'm saying that its a place of symbolic importance to them, and changing it, might not be well recieved.Those two things aren't at all related to eachother.Especially because all the races the Arachne actually interact with, are moths and harpies, who can fly, and aren't in that big need for web highways.
>>37202272>They've also made no effort to make web highwaysTo be fair, only the moths would actually be able to use those, and most of them aren't as adventorous as Nin.We want web highways based on the assumptiom we find other races.
>Rank 3 cookingmeanwhile, Lyra has proven pretty good at barbeques.
>>37202272>They've also made no effort to make web highways to help the less combatative races.The less combative races can fly. Why would they need a highway?
>>37202310But moths explicitly can't fly well enough to get anywhere.And you're outright saying that they wouldn't like it. That's your assumption. Based on not much at all.It could be that nobody wanted to make the extremely long trip to the city to spend the time rebuilding something they didn't plan on living in, perhaps.We're the only family who even lives close to the thing, if you recall.There's an infinity of reasons for why they didn't fix it, and to immediately assume they won't like it is just being pointlessly contrarian.
>>37202310>>37202369>>37202343>But they can fly!Moths can't fly like that you doofs.It's central to many conversations we've had AND our moth character.
>>37202369I could see the moths needing it. Assuming there isn't anything dangerous that can climb trees in this forest. Which there most likely is.>>37202390I explicitly said moths would use them, read what people write.
>>37202373Not sure why you are so opposed to meeting other arachne to find out if they have any particular reason they didn't rebuild the ruins. > Based on not much at all.Based on them not having been rebuild in six centuries.
>>37202373>And you're outright saying that they wouldn't like it.No, I'm saying we don't know if they would like it.He assumed they absolutely had to like it.I never said they necessarily would hate it, I said its very possible they might not want to see this place changed or rebuild.
>>37202448I'm not opposed to meeting them.I am opposed to you assuming they don't want their fancy things rebuilt based on how nobody has decided to put any work into it yet.Because there's usually only one or two families that even live near the thing, and it's STILL half a day trip there for us. And it would take several trips to fix it.I really have no idea why you are so opposed to doing a nice thing. If they don't like it THAT FUCKING MUCH they can break it down again.There's literally no reason for you to oppose this as much as you have.
>>37202480And it's very possible all the other arachne died of a mysterious disease in the short time since we've seen them. Better assume they're all dead and act on that information.
>>37202448>>37202373>>37202310>>37202272Guys, it's nice to meet new people and it would be good to meet other Arachne in general. Taking the time to ask, just to make sure, won't really be a burden to us.In fact, it would be nice to meet our Spiderauntie and Spidercousins. Let's go meet them.
>>37202498>There's literally no reason for you to oppose this as much as you have.All I'm opposing is your insistence they absolutely have to love it and we totally need to do this.
>>37202514Nobody is arguing against visiting people except for this guy>>37202448making strawmen about his opponents.
The Wendigo knows nothing he says will dissuade us.He saw a spider leading a group of other monster types and thought to himself "Gods dammit, this one's a PC.'
>>37202521you mean how I said it would be fun and probably a nice gift?God, you must be the WORST at christmas. "I COULD get them a thing, but they might hate it! I should instead get nobody anything."It's not like they can't return/redestroy it if they care as much as you claim.
>>37202544The poor guy he had just finished a new prophecy in time for more fucking spiders to show up
>>37202552Hey, that guy's been alive a whole 30 years and he doesn't own a copy of this book.That must be for a good reason. Better just get him a pile of things he already has.
>>37202552>I should instead get nobody anything.Or you get them something different. You are really bad at making strawmen.Usually you go an find out about what the person likes before making them a gift.And the ruins are place of memory and history. Yes, it is very possible they don't want to see them changed.
>>37202552>you mean how I said it would be fun and probably a nice gift?That is a completly unfounded assumptiom though.Fact is, they haven't rebuild them in six centuries. There is probably a reason, and we should find out that reason. Simple as that. Don't get so butthurt just because some people don't instantly agree with your idea and point out possible problems with it.
>>37202605And so far, all evidence has pointed to them liking the thing but not getting around to fixing it.If you want more evidence, fine, but don't just go saying that they wouldn't like it based on nothing at all.Sometimes these things just take some initiative. >>37202650>completely unfoundedAll arachne polled thus far think it would be cool. You are free to poll more arachne, I am fairly confident it would only support my argument.
She leans into your hand easily enough, falling silent against you.You sigh a little as you consider what to say, chitin clicking lightly as you walk.Sometimes simple is best."No."There's a twitch of movement beneath your hand, a little hop as the moth's surprise makes itself known."But he said-"You shake your head."No. Nevermind that the city fell, yes? Or how. It doesn't change anything. We will still leave the woods, still travel, still see so many different things, different lands."Her hands come off your shoulders, reaching up and catching your own. Her thumbs trace your palm, your fingers as she shifts side to side on her feet."But... The forest- I wanted- I thought- that we could make it better. That if we just..."She trails off again.You close your hand holding hers for a moment."Nin, we are children. A year, a few years, that is a long time, yes? A decade is nearly forever! We will find things, learn things, grow older, wiser. Maybe not you, but-"She snorts."And in any case- I will not be taking advice on cities from someone who's idea of a perfect living space is moss covered trees, yes? The wendigos don't seem to like people. They don't seem to like each other! And there are so many other things we could do-"Your voice trails off as you consider them. Roads and maybe a central market, or just an office type thing or a meeting place or- Ah. Aha."-And none of those matter anyway because I am not GOING TO BE A QUEEN."Her giggles bubble out into the air, and she leans against you again."Thank you."You make a noise that's half growl, half assent, sending your friend into another set of laughter.>Pick up the pace, head for your boat. >Speed out of the 'Circle' and find something to eat. Something less than building size, preferably.>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?>Other (?)
>>37202650>there is probably a reasonNot to be a spoil sport, but that reason is probably "hey, we didn't feel like it, we spend most of our time hunting."Based on what we've seen of arachne.
>>37202690>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?And maybe if she wants to get some spider silk clothes.
>>37202690>>Pick up the pace, head for your boat.
>>37202682>but don't just go saying that they wouldn't like it based on nothing at allLiterally no one in this entire argument ever said that.>>37202139>Not sure if its a nice surprise. That place has some bitter history to them.That was the entire gist of it. No one ever said they would hate it, only that they might not want that. You are the only one who tries to make an absolute out of it just so you can rant at someone.Others doubted there being any point to it, and they are free to feel that way.
>>37202690>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?
>>37202690>>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?Ha, you tricksy moth, you.
>>37202690>>Pick up the pace, head for your boat. >>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?Chat with Lann about what she will write as she rides the spiderbutt express back to the boat.
>>37202690>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?>>37202707Probably. I'm not honestly sure they even care nearly as much as mom does.
>>37202690>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?>>37202732We could offer more than just simple clothes. We just throw her to Elle. By the end of it Lann will have an entire wardrobe and Elle will be so happy.
>>37202740Weren't you literally posts ago making absolutes out of how I didn't want to go visit people, something I never claimed, specifically to rant at someone?And assuming they won't want it fixed because they haven't fixed it yet is based on nothing at all in my book. There are so many things in the world people have not gotten around to yet. Assuming nobody wants any of them because they haven't done it yet is incredibly counterproductive for everyone involved.
>>37202690>Pick up the pace, head for your boat. >Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?So much left to do before leaving.
>>37202690>Pick up the pace, head for your boat.>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?
>>37202690>wait till we get back into the safer part of the woods, then river beach episode.
>>37202690>Pick up the pace, head for your boat. we FLOAT!>Ask Lann what she thought. She has to make a report or something, right?There is nothing keeping us from talking while moving!
>>37202690So, do Anons want to just go back the way we came, or try a different route?I'd be up for heading East and skirting the edge of the Forest, walking the foot hills at the base of the mountains.
>>37202843sorry anon, I can't turn down a free float.
>>37202809I was thinking more like light under-armor to help keep her safe on her jobs than a wardrobe.
>>37202843Sadly we won't get to explore the mysterious shores beyond the mountains.
>>37202843I'd argue west then downward, following the mountain. I'd like to know what's in them then take a look at the dragon bone of the wolfmen.
Chatting with elves- Half and Half edition!Writing.And dammit, I get less free posts from captcha every time.
>>37202978captcha is a fancy dick. I don't like it.
When we reunite the forest races, we are going to name ourselves Potentate of the Forest, just to spite Nin.Also, shouldn't we add "Seeker of Wendigos" or something like that to our titles now?
>>37202932Well, I was thinking following the mountains East because it's a longer route and we'd get to see more, but I have no objection to West.>>37202909We'll see the other side of the mountains some day. We gotta head to Elfa Elfa Island at some point.
>>37203039Sadly we probably have to go home first now, so Mom doesn't worry.
>>37203024>Seeker of WendigosYesss. We will have ALL the titles.>Taking all titles other than Queen just to spite Nin.That's evil. I love it.
>>37203024I don't really want to go higher than "mayor".or perhaps "councilwoman".
>>37203087wait a minute>councilwomannow that I think about it, does language like that apply to us?Or are we some kind of councilwospider?What's the male version of that?
>>37203087Prince Mayor just to drive Nin insane
>>37202843The more updated map again for those who missed it.
>>37203087I don't think Lyra would want to be tied down like that.Maybe a wandering Magistrate or something like that. Praetor Lyra.
>>37203073You're assuming that Nin won't just sneak the Queen title in there when we're not looking.She'd totally do it.
>>37203132Looks nice, maybe you could fit in the approximate Wendigo location?
>>37203118We are monsterkin, so technically we are a "women" at least in part.>>37203126We name it the Forest Principality and stay Princess Lyra.
>>37203087>"councilwoman".Nin- "Ha! I knew it. I knew you would unite the races, knew you would make the forest safe again, knew you would be Quee-"Lyra- "Oh no Nin, I won't be Queen. In fact, I'm going to introduce democracy to the forest."Nin- "Democracy?"Lyra- "Yes Nin, that means I will never be Queen, because there will be no Queens. Ever."Nin- "Nooo. How could you!"Lyra- "AHAAAAAAHAAAAA!"
>>37203204Cue Nin becoming first Minister of the Forest Realm and her first motion will be re-introducing the symbolic position of Forest Queen.
>>37203175That's easy if I use another tree, harder if I have to find a new icon to edit. Opinions?
>>37203264Its a tree. So I would think a tree works.Maybe a different color if its easy?
>>37203248>Make a Democracy>Nin change the constitution so it become a Constitutional Monarchy with Lyra as its queenOr it goes like France did and we have to fight Nin as she tries to set us up as Empress instead of Queen.
>>37203323The forests first civil war>"The War of the unwilling Queen"
>>37203352>One Giant Spider vs the rest of the forest
>>37203280Sadly it would be less work to create a new icon from scratch thanks the texturing I do to improve the look at that scale.
>>37203423One giant spider and Sheszka.Jin probably got convinced into joining the rebells because being Queen would mean Lyra would "the strongest".
>>37203352The most confusing war in history.The Mothia Alliance, fighting with all their might to ensure the other side wins and the Spider Queen rules.The Spider League, fighting with fury and passion to ensure they don't take power and rule the forest.
>>37203352>Legend has it that when the war ended, the aspiring monarchist moth was harshly punished in ways forbidden in today's society. While the exact secrets behind these gruesome punishments have been mostly lost, the ancient texts still surviving tell of a mysterious process known as 'head-patting'...
>>37203441Then the tree symbol is okay, It can stand for "forest people homes".
>>37203448She says Lyra is the strongest though...
>>37203470No head-patting isn't the punihsment.antenna stroking is.>>37203481But Sheszka could never fight against her alpha, no matter what.
>>37203448It's a win/win. Lyra wins, it proves she's the strongest, she loses, she's declared the strongest and Queen.
>>37203472Ok, I'll throw it in there when I get home. Maybe I'll add a sea serpent or something too.
>>37203508>No head-patting isn't the punihsment. antenna stroking is.Please anon, that kind of barbaric act was already outlawed at the time of the war.
>>37203530That'd be cool. Thanks for your effort.
>>37203198Actually I really don't think we're "men" or "women".A. we're a giant spider.B. we're part elf, not man.
>>37203571We are basically translating anyway. Since Forest tongue isn't english, and we don't know what Lyras human language was thats similar to Plainspeech.
>>37203594basically I'm wondering what the spider equivalent of "men" is.
>>37203662That may technically be the most accurate way.
>>37203649Male spider. We don't have a gender-specific word for male spiders.Like, stallion or something like that.The arachne might in spider-speach, but we can't pronounce that.
>>37203649Elves. Sad day for all spiderkind.
>>37203728I may start calling male arachne stallions anyway.Well, all the ones that aren't our brothers.We should really go visit some.strange lyra feelings intensify
You pick up your pace. Just a touch. You know the general area of your boat, and you did build a marker over it.You're still in an unfamiliar piece of the forest, though.You've got ways of distracting yourself, at least."Lann?""Yeah?""What'd you think?""What did I think what?"You tilt your head side to side."The wendigo, the story. The trip, I guess? You have to make a report, yes?""Yeah. I don't... The whole thing is weird. Every piece.""Mhm?""To start- Everything we know about wendigos is wrong.""Everything? Even what they looked like?""People thought that their faces pulled back over their skulls and then they ate people.""I think he was just wearing it, yes.""Mm. And they're healers and druids and want to be left alone in the forest. Hells, I don't know if they'll even believe me.""I will speak for you, yes?""I don't know if that'll count for much.""Of course it will. Who would contradict a giant spider?"The half-elf snorts, leaning back in the eye socket- She isn't as small as Jin or Nin, so she's filled it with blankets, leaving her legs trailing across the back of the skull and sitting in it. "I think you might be exploiting that a little much.""I save it for special occasions, yes.""Hmph. And you're not worried about the whole city thing?""I already say no.""I heard. But the whole prophecy bit-""It was broken, yes? And I will break more, if only to prove him wrong.""Yeah, that's a great attitude to have. Rewrite destiny out of spite.""Whatever works, yes."Well, this is definitely the area the boat should be in. Probably. You are planning to get it in the water, and then you just won't do anything for like, a whole week. Maybe a day. A few hours at least.>Speed around, look for your monument.

>>37203833>all the ones that aren't our brothersAnon please. Our brothers have it hard enough, you don't need to emasculate them even more.Is that a thing with arachne, anyway? All our sisters used to be bigger then our brothers, not sure if thats normal or just because we kept taking them on adventure.Maybe calling a male arachne really "feminine" means they are particularly big and strong?>>37203876>Speed around, look for your monument.

>>37203876>Try and track your own scent. Maybe you can figure it out easily. >The branches are high enough. Jin can probably help.
>>37203938I am serious about that face thing.We should really try it. Just to see.
>>37203876>>Speed around, look for your monument. Thing.Ask the earth for directions. Try to make sense of strange earth ramblings
>>37203876>>Speed around, look for your monument. Thing.Is Sheszka still sleeping?
>>37203975I bet if we try hard enough, we get a evolution that can do it.Actually come to think of it, maybe Ghoul Arachne can do that, and thats where the rumor came from?
>>37203481But this way, the whole world knows it.
>>37204003Pff, we can totally do it already I bet.And if not, I will be jelly of anyone who can.
>>37203876>>Speed around, look for your monument. Thing.>>The branches are high enough. Jin can probably help.>>Have Shesz attempt to track the scent.
Get that nervous energy flowing!And also maybe ask a harpy for help.Writing!
>>37204003>>37204038on this note:WHAT spider powers are we going to be discovering months down the line that we never realized we have?Are we going to be smacking ourselves when we realize the spinnerettes have cookie cutter style web shape options?
>>37204215I'm more concerned about the half-elf abilities we haven't discovered yet, I mean we got venomous Fangs from them I'm sure we got something else
>>37204215I assume mother has educated us thoroughly on what a spider body can do, so we know everything there is to know. So there is only a few things Lyra has left to discover about her body.
>>37204268True. That elf poison is nice to have, but would be unfortunate to learn by surprise.We should check ourselves for tentacle-suckers, or lethal ear edges.Goddamn friends rubbing our ears
>>37204268According to Lanns sheet, Half-elfs have a latent ability to fly.
>>37204268Lann doesn't have venomous fangs, she seems to have gotten the half without.
>>37204268>>37204304>According to Lanns sheet, Half-elfs have a latent ability to fly.
>>37204351With our spider and elf heritage, soon we will be able to take to the sky with Jin.
>>37204344Now hold on, just because we haven't seen them doesn't mean she lacks them.
>>37204373She said she can't bite people to poison them.Maybe she hasn't figured it out yet, she did say she doesn't know much about her elf half.We need to tell her.Or go take a look when she sleeps
>>37204351>>37204370Hey.We have no way of knowing that isn't part of her half HUMAN side.
>>37204405Silly anon. Humans can't fly, we know that because of Jins dad.Seriously, flying humans.
>>37204398"Lann I have a question, yes?""Sure Lyra whats up?""Your fangs, can I see them?""My... what?""Your fangs, the elf fangs you are a half elf yes?""Lyra elves don't have fangs""Don't be silly why else would I have fangs?"
we should ask Dad to help us with some 'research', then have Nin put Lann and Dad to sleep so we can compare their physiology...Then they wake up to see us, Nin and Jin in doctor smocks and face masks discussing the differences in their bodies...
>>37204526It's shit like this which is why we need to practice webcrafting.How will we have whatever costume we need to make a joke work if we can't weave well? Elle won't go adventuring with us, that's for sure.
>>37204451It occurs to me that we should ask Dad. He is a full blooded elf, afterall.
>>37204569We should ask Dad where his and Lann's giant butt-skulls are.We certainly didn't get ours from mom, after all.
>>37204618Heyyyy, yeah!Arachne don't have giant skulls on their butt!You elves must have saddles us up with something!
>>37204569B-but dad would just take it in stride! Where's the fun?
If we got our skullbutt from dad, then why don't we have a character class yet?cavalier when?
>>37204712silly anon, everyone who RIDES us would be the ones getting the class.Mounts don't get shit.
>>37204764We are both the mount and the rider though.Otherwise the class would be Chariot.
>>37204803And that's why we're not getting levels, because chariot isn't a class.Neither is mount.
>>37204832Lyra will realize this when she eventually goes to buy a saddle to complement her skull butt and make her companions' ride a bit more comfortable.
You slow to a stop, tapping one leg idly against the ground. A moment's thought conjures a stone out of the ground, letting your chitin click audibly.A little frivolous magic and you can feel calmness wrapping around you.It brings a smile to your face.You can probably use earth magic to pulse for your boat. That'd necessitate stopping, grabbing mana from Sara and all that, though. And using magic rather than the earth control will tire you out faster. You could, of course, just run around the woods looking for it. Orrrrrr-Your eyes slide up one of the monstrous trees surrounding you, your head leaning back straining till you can see the branches above. Jin could easily fly here. And two sets of eyes are better than one. And one set of eyes that can fly are probably better than one on the ground. And-No, this is getting stupid. You turn, leaning around Nin, extending a finger and prodding the snoozing harpy.Her head pulls free from a wing, eyes blinking slowly as she looks around. "Nnngnng- what? I am fast.""No, you are Jin."The bleached harpy pulls her shoulders back, stretching and yawning, feathers flicking as she clears her eyes."Lyra?""Jin."You brush her bangs from her face, smiling as she look sup at you. "I could use your wings, yes? We need to find where we buried our boat."The harpy nods, picking herself up, wings already spreading. "Look for the stone I raised to mark it, yes?""Yes, yes.">I'd like 2d100, please.
Rolled 96, 45 = 141 (2d100)>>37205028have some dice while I read the post
Rolled 76, 16 = 92 (2d100)>>37205028HAHAHA, TIME FOR HYDRAS
Rolled 92, 83 = 175 (2d100)>>37205028The boat is filled with bears
>>37205066And remember bears are tasty!
>>37205066Earth elemented bears I assume?
>>37205066Well then.Must be a lot of bears.
The Dice Gods continue to smile upon spiderbutt.
>>37205066>>37205060>>37205037Not with dice like that it isn't.96 and 83, Writing!
>>37205066But what if we find beholder-chan in it instead?
>>37205122I assume number like that yield littlest wendigos that want to see other parts of the forest. Potentially with a giant spider. Following the trend
>>37205123Then we rejoice.
>>37205149The littlest Wendigo would probably be pissed at Lyra all the time.
>>37205149Please, anon.We're already at large party limits. We even have special guest heroes.
>>37205255Sounds like she'd have a strong enough personality to compete with the moth for screentime
>>37205028>"Nnngnng- what? I am fast."Oh no, Jin is turning sanic
>>37205300Thats the last thing we need, another character with as strong a presence as Nin to share the screen with.
>>37205347Gotta go fast.I for one fully support jin in becoming one with speed.
>>37205288We still have the open space for the tiny lamia.
>>37205445Thankfully, tiny lamias are small enough to fit in even the most cramped of parties.Though I see no reason for them to actually be tiny and would prefer a normal one.to replace lann
>>37205498cold blooded anon
>>37205498for a moment, I thought you said "most cramped of panties".I've caught the lewd.Also we still need panties.
>>37205895How would we even wear panties?And would we wear them only for our human genitalia or also our epigyne?
>>37205952Only the human part.The other part would have a tea-cozy.And I am not sure how we would wear them, but we still need them, I say. We're constantly elevated compared to other people and have open-bottom clothing.
>>37205988I always assumed based on the fact that Lyra hasn't been bothered by it yet, that her genitalia is hidden behind a bit of her exoskeletton, since its located where her human part meets the spider part.Could it be Lyra hasn't discovered her own human portion genitalia yet?
>>37205988Probably like a fundoshi or a sublicalum, where it's wrapped around the bits.
>>37206036I think it's just we've never had the realization that we're totally wearing a dress.I am waiting for the mother of all embarrassed sprints out of town one of these visits.
>>37206062The strings would be constantly showing though.
>>37206086I don't know. I would think if her gentialia were normally exposed, she'd think of that first, since she is more used to a human body, at least in her first few days she would have reflexively tried to cover it, even if arachne normally don't.So it seems overall more likely to me that its just not exposed in the first place, and its only lewd from a human perspective.The flustering would probably happen when the old guy pointsd it out, because Lyra has a human perspective.
>>37206088That's why she wears a skirt. And stop peeking, you perv.
>>37206145Basically I am waiting for the old guy to make the crack about how we're wearing underclothes with that dress.He already did the showing lots of leg one. It's only a matter of time.
>>37206171I assume he will once we are older.Lyra is just a little to young for him, to make that sort of comment.As far as he knows, she is basically a teenager.
I wonder if we have to get dressed up for halloween.And if there even is a halloween type thing.
>>37206217That costume would be pretty hilarious, Lyra putting fake legs on the front of her body to make it look like she has a human lower half and a spider lower half.
>>37206217If Halloween isn't a thing, we should make it one.
>>37206261We have so many legs to dress up on halloween, we can do so many clever things.
>>37206277The horns are totally mom's thing, though.
>>37206261>>37206277We should clearly just add a stinger and fake claws and go as a scorpion girl for Monster Halloween
>>37206309>>37206261Lyra should go as a bear for halloween.
>>37206217>>37206261We have to make something like this. Be an Elf riding a Giant Spider. Hat/head dress/ whatever to cover some of our eyes and gloves over the chiten.Would be awesome.
Between you and your eyes in the sky, it barely takes any time at all to track down the boat. Which doesn't of course mean that you didn't spend thirty minutes running around the woods, checking trees and watching for foot prints. Or giant blood stains.The only thing missing is ridiculous fast paced music as you barrel around trees and over roots, much to your passengers complaints.You do, however, find the boat. You'll mark it down as a success. One bout of magically assisted digging later, Lann and Nin are walking next to you, you've got the boat slung over your back and a harpy demanding pampering in your arms. Jin is barely staying awake as you stroke her hair and feather tufts, leaning back into you for warmth."Good job, yes?""Mmmhmmm-""We finally managed to get you awake, star-eyes. Don't go back to sleep.""Star-eyes?""I think you are quite fixated on them, yes. Would you prefer fire eyes?""I am not obsessed, yes.""You keep saying that, but-""Adventure-eyes.""What.""Always going on adventures.""I am not.""Planning to leave the forest.""When we are older. And you wanted to come, too, yes!"
>>37206356The hardest part of that would be rigging up some kind of hideous giant spider head.
>>37206365"Yes.""Mhm.""I do want to come, yes. Not just so we get stronger. Not just to catch the stars. I will keep your stories, yes."That's... a lot of words, actually. "Thank you, Jinni.""Mmmnm."She manags to fall asleep a few minutes later. You aren't quite sure how she manages it, exactly. You should probably ask Lia. Mabe start writing your own monster compendium. Or convince Sara, too. It wouldn't even be hard. Research monsters, write it down. Getting her interested in non-magical species might take some work though.You're still caught up in your thoughts when the trees thin, rushes and reeds lining the edge of the lake.>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.>It's probably safe in the Shallows. >Drag the boat along the edge. It'll be faster than holding back your pace for Nin and Lann if they just ride you again.>Chat with people (Who? Topics?)>Other (?)
>>37206400>>It's probably safe in the Shallows.
>>37206400>>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.>Chat with people (Who? Topics?)So. Lann.What powers did you get from being half human?
>>37206400>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.>Chat with people , Talk to Sheszka if she would like to viit the werewolf portion of the forest again, her old home, maybe see that giant dragon skeleton.
>>37206400>>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.
>>37206418That looks adorable.
>>37206400>>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.>Chat with people (Who? Topics?)Did Sara manage to talk a bit about magic with the wendigo? Could she replicate what he did for Sheszka now that she had the chance to see it?
>>37206400>>It's probably safe in the Shallows.>>Chat with people (Lann)Tell us of your human powers, Lann!
>>37206400>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.>Talk to Nin about the other forest races her books have mentioned
>>37206400>>It's probably safe in the Shallows.maybe we get to fight a giant fish
>>37206400>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.I want to find the owner of the eyes!
>>37206400>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.>Talk to Sheszka if she would like to visit the werewolf portion of the forest againI realised the Lann question isn't actually that funny since we already know someone else half-human anyway.
>>37206400>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.
>>37206400>It's probably safe in the Shallows. Giant spider are made for not listening
>>37206592did we already do that joke?fuck
>>37206580Those are several days travel downstream.
>>37206627The joke not, but Jin is half-human too, and Lann knows her dad, so it won't fluster her at all when she can point that out.
Follow the edge of the lake!Talk to everyone about all things!Writing!
>>37206400>Follow the edge to the river. They said the lake was bad news.>Talk to Sara about the Wendigo and his magicI doubt she could do much with it, since its completly different magic, but she loves talking about magic anyway.
>>37206628Not if it followed us, it's could be following along shyly, wanting us to train it how to be scary.
>>37206706So we get back our brothers have evolved, we must begin acting like a very touchy feely older sister
>>37206728>it wasn't tribute>it was the Gazer trying to impress Arachne-senpai with her hunting skillI didn't care about the off-hand joke before, now I no.
>>37206769>now I nono or know?
>>37206754We'll probably see them even less then before now that they can go further away and hunt bigger prey.But we have to drag Elle and Aria to hunting for those last few level.>>37206817Actually, do.
>>37206831are you purposely phrasing things in an ambiguous manner.
>>37206910I realised I forgot a comma, if you mean that.
>>37206910He meant to say "now I do.", as in the "Sempai noticed me!" joke.
>>37206769Guys what's the save on a 21/2 upturned ready eye social attack?
>>37207159Tearey*Phone auto corrected to ready.
So what's the wendigo's prophecy again? I read the last thread but I don't remember a prophecy, just a history lesson and learning that most non arachne monsters are pansies.
>>37207343I don't think we actually asked.
>>37207343We don't know them either.Apparently they had foreseen >'the end of the forest is nigh'But that might have been just part of the joke in the ask.fm.I think Lyra just took the comment of her stubborness a bit too personal.
You don't have time for this. You'd like to get out of this piece of the forest before the sun falls.You casually flip the boat into the water, securing it with a line of silk, wrapped once around your hand."Hop on, yes? I want to sleep in a tree and not be disturbed by giant monsters.""Does it count if you have nightmares? I mean, you are kind of a-""I will leave you in the woods, Lann."The half elf laughs, hopping easily to your back, offering a hand up to the tiny moth.Your pace isn't quite at maximum- Sara doesn't have nearly your stride. Or your stamina.You let the walk proceed in silence for a few minutes. At that point, you've had enough. Its time to amuse yourself."Lann? Do you mind if I ask a few questions?""Uh, sure? It depends what you're asking, though.""Alright. What powers do you get from being half-human?""What?""And what ones are from being half-elf?""There isn't any-""Do you have poisonous fangs?""No. No, I don't.""That is from the elf-side, yes?""I don't believe elves have poison fangs.""But you're not sure.""No, I'm pretty sure."Nin is giggling, at least."Can you fly, then?""Why in any god's name would I be able to fly?""Well, Jin is half human, yes? And she can fly, so...""Jin can fly because she is a harpy. Because she has wings. Humans can't fly, Lyra.""Then what are they good for, yes?""Just- All sorts of things.""All sorts?""All sorts.""I see."You grin, and drop your pace a tad. Sara is flagging a bit."Sara, what did you think of the wendigo's magic?""It's- It's druidism, yes."She gasps out, as she slows."Faith based magic, yes. It's not- Not the same. No mana.""Hah? Really?""Yes. They channel the will of nature or something? There's still limits, of course."The lake curves to a close in front of you, the single broken part of the bank rushing out and away.You've reached the river.One step at a time, yes.
>>37207843That's it for tonight!Our next thread will pick up thursday, 2PM EST!Comments, questions and Concerns answered here!And I couldn't work asking Nin about the races into the conversations. It'll turn up next thread.
>>37207843Time for the LAZIEST drifting down the river.Also, do we give lann nightmares?
>>37207843>"Do you have poisonous fangs?">"No. No, I don't.">"That is from the elf-side, yes?">"I don't believe elves have poison fangs.">"But you're not sure.">"No, I'm pretty sure.">I am a Giant spider, I am here to survey you. Are you and elf, and where are your fangs.
>>37207975Thanks for getting Lann's pastebin up.
>>37207975Ah, dang, see you next time. Thanks for running!
>>37207975Thanks for running, have a good night.>"Does it count if you have nightmares? I mean, you are kind of a-"What exactly was she trying to say there? Does she have nightmares from us?Kinda understandable I suppose.
>>37207843>all sorts of thingsNow we can say"QUICK, USE YOUR HUMAN POWERS!" whenever we come to a problem that we can't solve easily.Then when lann can't solve it, we get huffy.
>>37207983Nah, Lann gotten over the giant spider thing. >>37208001No problem! Glad you enjoyed it.>>37208008>>37208033Thanks for playing!She was asking if you, a giant monster, having nightmares, counted as your sleep being interrupted by a giant monster.>>37208060This is excellent.
>>37208173>counted as your sleep being interrupted by a giant monsterOkay that makes more sense.>Nah, Lann gotten over the giant spider thing. Good, that means we can take the teasing to the next level.
I'm phone posting so I can't drop the whole story I would just like to say.Dr. Love has started his courtship of the Butterfly and the lines "I'd like to spread you on my toast" and "Out of the cocoon, means it's all good" were used.
>>37208382I -knew- moths came from coccoons!How old are you, nin?HOW OOOOLD?
>>37208412>How old are you, nin?Too old!
>>37208173I'm a little late, but thanks for running
>>37208412Old enough to be lewd with Lyra.
Since this is still up, here's the Wendigo location map update. Going to go work on a sea dragon because I'm bored.
>>37213205Sea dragons are always a classic.
>>37213205Can you do me a favor and also tell me what the genre of this quest chain is, I've added it to the 1d4chan quest list and am too tired to read through everything.
>>37213300ffffantasy?A pretty solid fantasy.Though the QM is long gone by now.
>>37213326Eh, 90% of /tg/ quests are fantasy, and its almost always a safe bet, would you classify it as horror to or no?
>>37213377No, not really. Almost slice of life, but not quite.
>>37213377Not at all. It's generally very laidback and comical.
>>37213205>>37213225Completed the Sea Dragon, and saved as a separate map to be safe.
>>37215501That's actually pretty well drawn.
>>37215519I can't draw for shit, I take images that are similar to what I want and then edit the hell out of them for a few hours to get my desired look.
>>37201620>You hum a little as you walk, letting the tune buzz through the air. You'd skip, but you're not sure how. Or if it's possible.We must learn, it would probably take some practice, but it would be worth it
>>37203876Didn't the wendigo explicitly tell us that arachne have a tendency to break fate and buck prophecy?
>>37205028>Nat 1, giant monster eats our jin.
>>37206356>That imagehilarious, saved
>>37206400>Sarah researching monstersoh haha, that would be hilarious. (those poor monsters)we have to do it.
>>37206400oh mang, we forgot to ask the wendigo whats in the lake! :(
