>>37247796Probably a bit afraid with how people have been demanding your blood in spookie.
>>37247678> "Ex… plain".
>>37247646>https://medium.com/@ATaleOfWitches/the-path-of-absolution-i-d67de4cf33b0Beta timeline, I guess?Anything I need to know about this?
>>37247894It's a shit. Mostly just a darker version of our world with a LN Maria and LE Eriadne there's a lot more suffering.I'm really sorry for not doing much on the wiki recently.I hope Hex hasn't abandoned ask.fm
>>37247926I meant about that specific journal entry.
>>37247951Do you mean like what happened or what it meant?
6 minutes.>>37247894>Anything I need to know about this?Any spoilers have been neutralized as of this update. Beta TL is-- >>37247926 this.> spoilerNot quite, no. I simply try to choose my words more carefully this time.>>37247951There's not much context, yea. Intentionally so; It was mainly intended as a short insight into how things work there.
>>37247961>>37247976Yeah I was wondering if there was any context I was missing for it, if not then that's cool.
>staring at first the impossibly beatiful face at whose feet I'm lyingGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY
>>37248023She's just that pretty anon. You don't understand!
>>37247678><Totem Bridge formed>Did we just use High Magic?
>>37247678>[x] "Uhm…" Love you Hex!
>>37248072You have no idea how much this filename being at odds with the image contents triggers the fuck out of me.
>>37247976You're not planning something stupid again are you?Because it turned to shit last thread you did that.
Closing, counting, writing. Once again apologies for taking an unacceptable amount of time.>>37247999No context, not yet.>>37248076I love you too.
>>37248150>I love you too.I think I'm going to have to bump with yandere girls today.
>>37248149I don't remember any past threads being particularly shit, which one are you talking about?
>>37248106You don't believe Maria drags her feet and is clumsy with handling matters?
>>37248248Last thread Hex decided to stay up for an entire night to write an update the next morning he threw it all out and the thread died on a pretty sour note.
>>37248278I don't believe you were intending to quote me.
>>37248285Huh, I remember the thread dying, but I guess I hadn't read about that.
>>37248334Warm anon had a rant at hex on the ask afterwards.
>>37248074Maybe not an actual spell or anything, but maybe she like activated her Totom?It looks like she got some buffs for it at least.
>>37248385Ah then I definitely didn't see that, I kinda got really bad about following all the supplementary stuff.
>>37248385I hope Hex's ask isn't being spammed by autists like some other QMs.
>>37248429I don't follow that many of them, but no one can get one as bad as Schteel has, I can't believe anyone is worse than that.
>>37248416>>37248429Nah, he just lost power and the thread died and he got pretty frustrated over it.He apologised about it afterwards.
>>37248429>I hope Hex's ask isn't being spammed by autists like some other QMs.It was, but only in regards to CCQ and some early stuff about the setting being sexist or some bullshit.>>37248447>I don't follow that many of them, but no one can get one as bad as Schteel has, I can't believe anyone is worse than that.Go say that to Azure's face, faggot. He'll either break down crying or punch you. HQR players are like MGNQ players with even more entitlement and less QM putting up with it IC.
>>37248483>Go say that to Azure's face, faggot. He'll either break down crying or punch you.I'll take your word for it.
>>37248396That's what it looks like. The medium post we just got mentioned Totems, and said to invoke it you need to use the emotion most connected to your totem as a bridge. Maria's desire to protect people seems like the Raven bridge. But she doesn't seem to be able to really control it, and Eriadne seems to have shocked her out of it.
>>37248521>>37248483> AE's playersNobody deserves this.>>37248534See, that's the correct way of spoiling things. Explain it right after showing it, don't just explain it only in the meta.
>>37247624>Deviance: 1.9Didn't we get that lowered again after we talk to what's her face, that other witch?
>>37248843It went up after we smoked with Liliana.
>>37248843>Didn't we get that lowered again after we talk to what's her face, that other witch?http://youtu.be/WeYsTmIzjkw> because we got high> because we got high> because we got hiiiiiiiighNo really that's the reason. She met us again and was pretty upset.
>>37248862I thought we should tip her again after that though.
>>37248896Spoke to her, I mean.
>>37248896She ran into us though and said YEA NO FUCK YOU STOP GETTING HIGH AS A KITE IN THE HALLWAYS and left.
>>37249023We're such a terrible arbiter of justice getting high with the first weed priestess who offers.
>>37249040Eriadne will never love us like this.
>>37249040Nobody can resist Liliana swag.
>>37249040Maria has an open mind and is always available to have fun with her friends.
How are you doing today Hex?
>>37247646>https://medium.com/@ATaleOfWitches/the-path-of-absolution-i-d67de4cf33b0Well, that was depressing.
>>37250481>Beta Maria is a man hating witchI laughed at that.
>>37250542I suspect it doesn't help that the "they" who scattered them are most likely dragonbloods.> dat Sora not giving a shit about anythingBest underappreciated girl.
>>37250542Cute subby tomboy gay >>>>>> Bulldyke bitch
>>37250648Fact. Besides, hating men makes no sense! Pa is a man, and Pa is great.
>>37250011>How are you doing today Hex?I'm fine for the most part, just very sore from working out, haha.>>37250542Laugh?>>37249146>Nobody can resist Liliana swag.Factually incorrect, it's more like few feel the desire to.
>>37250730>inb4 beta Pa was a wife beater
>>37250791Oh s/he talks!
>>37250791>Laugh?Just difference between our cute gay Maria and beta's Maria being a bitch about it was kinda funny, they sorta similar but still completely different.
>>37250944>>37250542>>37250481What bothered me more than the manhating was actually how it lead to her consciously trying to hate Sora into submission. That's just a cunt thing to do no matter what your experiences are otherwise.Worse, that seems to be normal with her.
>>37251016Considering she's in grimderp shitville and has cat totem, she seems nice really.
>>37251016>Beta timeline a shitSpeaking of it though, that Maria is a cleric?
>>37251090>Speaking of it though, that Maria is a cleric?What? Why do you think so? She explicitly said she didn't even know much of the gods.
>>37251120No you're right, I confused her Frostlight for the one the clerics get, Watchfire.Still though, that thing rare in the main timeline.
>>37250944>>37251016Kind fo makes me want to see how much of a fight our Maria and Beta!Maria would get into if they met each other.
>>37247678>[X] Accidentally drop fattyShe's healthy, not fat.
>>37251836Fatty fat fat. She's probably only heavy for certain people.
>>37251836Delicious childbearing hips~> you will never have a threesome with Liliana and HelenaJust imagine what their All-Communion could do.
>>37251955Bit young for that innit?
>>37251955>That softnessIt would be amazing anon. Amazing.>>37252044Details.
>>37252044What, for making delicious love to or rearing children?>>37252063I know, right?
>>37251278>>37251090Yes, the Frostlight is the Witch equivalent of the Watchfire or -less formally- Aura you saw around Liliana/felt around Helena.>>37251836Being fat isn't healthy, anon.
>>37252437Frostlight is rare in the main time line right?Does it have to do with beta being set in a darker age?
>>37252804>Does it have to do with beta being set in a darker age?Or maybe Beta!Maria is just that talented! We'll see more of this later, but in general you can assume it's due to increased need of people/the world/reality/the witch(es) in question.
>>37253250I'm being a good European and going to sleep, thanks for posting the thread at last!
>>37250791>I'm fine for the most part, just very sore from working out, haha.You lift?!?!
>>37247678> "Uhm…" > "I… what".> "Ex… plain".
Turns out I started too late, sorry. BRB sleep, focus is elusive at this hour and I don't think anyone needs a repeat of last time.Just a rough estimate, would there be a desire for a more long-range specc or is the current direction of Maria's skills alright?>>37253794Why wouldn't I? It's probably what helped me push through at last. Stuff's very good at helping me get less tied up in my head.>>37253475It is good to be back.
>>37255010>current direction of Maria's skills alright?Current is fine. Sora and the others would be better at range anyway.Though some kind of long range stun would be nice.
>>37255010what >>37255039 saidhave a good sleep Hex we'll watch over you
>>37255039Oooh actually some kind of grab would be amazing.
>>37255039>>37255131But yeah overall keeping Maria's long range magic skills to things that disable people or get them closer to us/us closer to them should be fine.Any damage we would need to do at range would be covered by our crossbow if needed.
>>37255087And OP didn't sleep that night.
>>37255529Such a lewd girl.Confirmed at least bi.
>>37257566I'm okay with that. Bi doesn't mean cheater after all.I just hope the others are okay with it too.
>>37255529>>37257566THIS IS WHY YOU KEEP YOUR HELENA AWAY FROM DEGENERATE NORTHERNERS AND LILIANA.
>>37255453Actually, I did. Amazing as it is, with about a dozen anons looking into my window.>>37255203>>37255039>>37255131Stun and grab. Hmm, alright, this could be arranged; I've got a gear route, a magic route and a Totem root in mind.Anyways, back to writing, thank you for your patience and being all around great.
We're back to the size of the Helena PoV if not less. Well it's to be expected.>>37259370Crossbow when?
>>37261716I can get maybe 1 bump off before hitting the hay myself, sleep well comfybumpanon
Bedtime bump, this anons heading to bed, can another please keep the thread alive?
>>37262905I can bump it a few times, sure.
Got some family business to unexpectedly take care of, not kill yet.>>37260177Soon.>>37260391Hmm. Got it. You have that though not entirely developed mostly. Then again, Helena's a pretty gud healer and probably isn't going anywhere for a while.
>>37260177>>37260391What's this about a crossbow?
>>37264361>>37264361Fast ranged option that doesn't require sacrifice of drain.
>>37265576>special loads made by Senra.I giggled.
>>37265976>wanting Helena to be separated from BEST GODDESS EVERAnon...
>>37266046Sorry I'm as high as our QM.
>>37266245Liliana pls. Drugs are bad.
>>37264458>>37265576Oh yeah I agree it would be useful, but it kinda sounded like it had been discussed before and I wasn't sure if I had missed something or it had happened somewhere outside of the threads or something.
>>37266353It was discussed before, I remember people asking about tech levels and crossbows on the AskFM at least a month ago. Not sure how much of it was in the thread.
>>37266353I think it happened during the aftermath of a thread or something. Dunno, ask OP or the guys who brought it up.
What's with the deleted posts? They were on topic
>>37269813Anon was probably shitposting hard somewhere else and Jan-kun nuked every post he made.
>>37269856Probably. Might have deleted them to avoid image limit but that's hardly under threat so probably not.
>>37269932I think that's pretty standard these days.
>>37266353My apologies, this was indeed mentioned in the meta; Please forgive my incredible rudeness in this regard.Things known so far: Crossbows can fire specialized ammo tipped with so-called Converter Crystals. A converter crystal has the ability to store or (duh) convert one energy form to another.Addendum: The most popular crossbow round is a storage-type one that can release heat accumulated over time in one instant, setting almost any target on fire within seconds.Of course, idiots tend to overheat them, which is among the top four leading ways of stupidly crippling yourself in the setting.
>which is among the top four leading ways of stupidly crippling yourself in the setting.Workplace health and safety/10.
>>37270151Hmmm, sounds useful. Will we have any opportunity to acquire one and/or training with it though?
>>37270194We have Eva who is a trained artificer.Though wasting them on training may piss her off a bit.
>>37270194I think it's fair to assume Maria knows a tiny bit about them though with the emphasis on *tiny*.> acquire Nag someone >>37270240, this someone for example. Or buy them. You're a witch. Witches don't face gun control.
>>37253490Your detector needs maintenance.
Well seems like there's no update today then maybe tomorrow we'll get lucky.Hex already failed his goal.>tfw he will never get faster
>>37272405If you just believe anon, miracles can happen.
>>37272517But he's already broken the 1 day mark by a fair few hours.He can;t turn back time.This quest will die in three day hell.
>>37272537eh, whats a few hours? as long as he doesn't expand that into two days, and then three days and so on
>>37272575To be honest if he ever went past three days for an update I would just stop bumping the thread.
>>37272575Two days is probably the soonest we will get this time because he normally doesn;t update in the morning.That's the time of day he throws all his work out and starts again.
>>37272703>spoilerDon't say such awful things, anon!
>>37272825I'm not trying to be mean or anything anon it's just how Hex works.He works on the update for most of the night and then after he goes to sleep and wakes up he mind fucks him over and he deletes everything.It kinda rotates through like this for a few days until he's so guilty about it that he just forces as update out and hates it.It's even worse when there isn't a thread up and it will take people literally screaming at him for him to actually post.I love Hex's writing, but this stupid cycle of his can get him stuck like this for like a week at a time.
Bump before bed.
>>37270151I guess these bolts are a one-use kinda thing?
>>37276499I would imagine the heat required the make someone spontaneously combust would melt the bolt, but maybe there are some expensive materials you can get them in that won't.
>>37276499Usually, yea. It's the kind of thing that gets rookies whipped by everyone in their platoon in turn because they're as fun to shoot as they're expensive to produce. I mean sure, Witches do travel with armies for these purposes, but it's never fun having to explain to your superior why you've been booking time with the company's crafter despite no gear failures being reported and there not having been an engagement for weeks.>>37272405Hey, it was already today by my clock that makes it-- never mind. Sorry. Need to be less of an asshat.>>37273567This anon -sadly- isn't wrong.
>>37279041So hurry up and update.
FFS, Hexer, calm the OCD, submit your first draft like every other QM, and fucking quest.
>>37280408You're the last person anyone will want to hear that from.
Bump, I suppose.
>>37281585Why bother? This thread's dead in the water.
>>37281647Have faith anon!The Hex will deliver!
Bedtime bump, can a fellow anon please keep the thread alive? Hex shall endure, and so to shall we alongside him.
I'm aware it is an ill omen at best and lacking any credibility at worst, but I was requested to inform rather than stall and I'll do so and assess the created damage later.I'm currently experiencing a repeat of the technical troubles from a few months ago and frankly it's looking worse. I'll later on perform a thorough cleaning in the hopes of restoring functioning but I'm not optimistic and shall attempt to borrow a laptop from somewhere instead.I'm deeply sorry, though as words are cheap I hope to make it up somehow eventually.Thank you.>>37280408I shall try.
>>37282897Hopefully your computer makes a recovery, unless it's ancient and you need a new one anyway at least.
Up you go.
>>37282897I have patience.
>>37285800Good to see you didn't get carried away by tornadoes XS. I'm afraid you would have made a less than ideal Dorothy. Or perhaps an improvement, depending on your perspective.
>>37285800>>37285800Liliana seducing the cast when?
>>37285836Well, Ozma does have a thing for kissing girls....>>37286512She doesn't seduce anyone. She simply makes herself available for those interested if it might be an interesting experience..
>>37286651>She simply makes herself available for those interestedPublic use Liliana when?
>>37286691I don't think she's an exhibitionist.At least not more than once or twice.
>>37286691Liliana seems like she'd make herself available to the kind of people for whom a more intimate experience would be preferred, to be honest.
Something tells me that this thread is going to be the one where we don't get an update at all.
>>37288040Well Hex had an update in progress, but his PC shat itself, so if he can get it stable again he can post what he's got
>>37286512>>37286651Seduction is a bit too mild a word with her god's portfolio.
>>37286900So she's a love slut?
>>37288640The best kind of slut.
Okay, PC seems back to not being moody. Equally importantly, people will probably not need my aid for the next couple hours. Feel free to resume blaming the QM for any additional delays.>>37285836> Tornado> fire> rinse and repeatSuch is life in the XS-zone.>>37288723Experts have it that love is indeed the sexiest fetish. Let's hope they're not the filthy lying kind of experts.
>>37288751Hex you should make it a priority to pick up some kind of compact and cheap laptop just for writing and posting stuff.
http://ask.fm/ConvictCyborg/answer/122947838018>Liliana's is whenever she CHOOSES it is. Don't you tell her otherwise.
Boards speeding up again.
>Twins are N/APffff
>Page 8 in 37 minutesThis is going to fucking suck.
>>37293188what is and why?
>>37293786Having to check on the thread every half-hour until the board slows down is sort of a pain.
>>37295017I'm here to help! For a bit.
>>37296490A last bump before I go to bed.Please don't scrap everything in the morning, Hex!
>>37297909Why would Hex scrap?
>>37288751The tornadoes were not typical! Though I'm definitely glad we went through Texas after that storm. It was very cold.
>>37301662Oh poop, I've to read Ryukuza all over again.Stupid depression, losing all interest in everything grumble mumble.I hope you've been well and haven't had to endure fires (much, at least).Is Ruykuza finished?
>>37301662You still live in a shithole about as life friendly as Australia. Don't whiteknight your geographical location.
>>37303619Hey, cyclones really aren't that bad and the wildlife leaves you alone if you don't go fucking with it.
>>37303619Northern California isn't so bad, other than the fires. But the air quality is good outside of fire season, and coastal cities are too expensive - I can't live in an actual city at all.>>37301719No, next thread is Tuesday. And no fires, that's a summer thing. Depression isn't fun. Eat more nuts and say away from the alcohol.>>37288751Love is only a fetish if you can't have sex without it. Don't bully the nymphomaniacs.
>>37303867>Love is only a fetish if you can't have sex without it.> mfw Hex can't get off unless her/his partner draws some blood from them. inb4 > QM > getting laid
>>37303867>Love is only a fetish if you can't have sex without it.Not really, there are many fetishes I have, yet I still can and do have sex without them, that logic makes no sense.
>>37303956It's merely a pedantic comment on the common (mis)use of the word 'fetish'.
>>37304188Please do not trigger the Hexer's OCD.
Bumping before I sleep.
[X] "Uhm…" …Right's that'S where I really stop getting anything! Not that I was ever very good at that in the first place but even then I'd have thought I had at least some small understanding of what's going on. Not so now. Somehow something tells me I just made a terrible fool of myself and I flush, looking away from my friend's impossibly beautiful face for something -anything- else to fix my attention on. Look towards the door maybe… oh. OH. Great, just great, this day really isn't getting any better is it. Well of course not, not when I am getting involved. At this rate everyone will end up *dead* before the week next begins. Really I need to either get better at what I'm supposed to do or find a way of quietly getting out of here before my terrible luck and totally awful failures at protecting those close to me hurts my friends too much. Like now: Helena is walking in using Liliana as support, limping on one leg and for once looking really miserable. Yep, I dropped her. Pa would be so disappointed in me right now; I did one thing and completely failed to pay attention to the other. One day and I'm already showing everyone what a failure of a guard I'd have grown up to be. Just perfect, if I didn't know them better I could fool myself into thinking everyone wasn't totally disgusted with me right now, but unfortunately I don't have that option. Alright, alright, focus, me.. You can at least pretend you didn't notice and try to apologize for being such a complete mess. Maybe they'll forgive you and-- realizing I'm still laying on the floor I seat myself on my , releasing the beast which promptly flutters off my hands and settles down on her crossed legs.1/?> cont
>>37305777Impressive amounts of failure there, Maria!
>>37305826>>37305777[self hate intensifies]
>>37305834I can only hope her friends go easy on her.
>>37305777What the fuck is going on?
>>37305899We dropped the Helena!!
>gentle admonishment from Eriadne>Maria suffers mental breakdownYep, that's our Maria. Though, Eriadne should really know better than to trigger guard training programs with flying draconian monsters!
>>37305899Maria hurt the puppy/kitten-equivalent.
>>37305913Are we talking about Helena or the monster? inb4 yes
>>37305905In Maria's defense Helena is terribly heavy.
>>37305912The draconian monster is probably a brat.
>>37305912>Yep, that's our Maria. Well, she was kinda halfway there already after this morning.>>37305777Good timing Hex we were just planning on sending a bunch of slavs to your house.
>>37305924Y-...Helena of course.>>37305927Bully levels: critical. Please lower.
>>37305912>Though, Eriadne should really know better than to trigger guard training programs with flying draconian monsters!> tfw the sanest char select option would have been the half-dragon, and that's assuming Eri doesn't have some predatory instincts she's barely hiding
>>37305964>and that's assuming Eri doesn't have some predatory instincts she's barely hidingThose will come out after the biting. Human blood tends to set off their more primal side.Maria will be fucked something serious.
>>37305969Right, there was that vague statement in QTG. Hex sounded seriously drunk during that.
>>37305969XS already wrote that.
>>37305969Eri would never "fuck" someone. She would unrelentingly take her pleasure from them of course though.
>>37305969>>37305964Inhuman/not quite human cast best.
>>37306065Hmmm, intoxicated Hex can be surprisingly lewd.
>>37306074Liliana pls don't drug and rape the hex. It's not good for its health.
You better not have scrapped and begun re-writing the second part of that update Hex...
>>37306167We may have tumbled into the bath zone.
>>37305777>I seat myself on my ,I think you're missing a word here Hex.
>>37306218Careful you'll scare him away again!
>>37306218Maria doesn't think naughty words.
Wait this isn't dead?
I believe in you Hex, you can do it!
>>37306432It is very much alive anon.>>37306468So too do I.
It's been an hour re-write confirmed.
https://twitter.com/ConvictCyborg/status/554283550250659840>All this L&MHex pls.
>>37306486>>37306514Chill anons, The Hex shall deliver.
>>37306518Hopefully within the day.
>>37306594Have faith anon!
I'm sure what you've got is fine Hex!
Hex please PLEASE just post.It will be fine I assure you.
"Uhm…"I begin, somewhat at a loss, still avoiding anything but sideways glances at Eriadne or my other friends who seem busy talking in hushed tones, certainly about how I just messed up everything. Focus, focus, force your body to obey! I can feel myself grow a little more cold and pale, my mind keeping the urge to flush crimson just barely under control. Imagining a golden string of light from center of my head going down into my chest I force my heart to beat slower, breaths calming. Can't quite stop the shivers or what must look like a totally miserable expression though, but nobody is perfect. Wh-- did Eriadne say anything? Time gets so weird when I'm like this. One of my teachers speculated I wasn't quite "complete" yet, though Pa insisted to say "my training" wasn't and to not worry too much about it. Right right where were we? Uhm, yes, Eriadne tried to tell me something."Lady Maria, might you perhaps venture an explanation in regards to your, ah, rather puzzling way of entrance?", right, that was it. Aah, but how to even begin to explain that to her withou sounding like a complete idiot? 'I'm sorry, I just kind of thought everyone was going to die so my Deep Training set off and then I heard some weird voice'? If that sounds silly to myself who knows how it's going to sound to everyone else. 2/3>>37306218>>37305777*haunches
>>37306910>>37306880See anons? You just have to have FAITH!
Ugh, this is just the worst but I'll have to explain it *somehow* if I'm not going seem even stranger than I certainly already do. Think of something, anything, me. Prove you're not completely common and at least know enough to properly account for your actions. Account? Yes, I'm pretty sure that's how you say it. By all the powers, what a complete and utter mess.Eep, Eriadne's still waiting, one of her grey-white eyebrows raised, a slight smile playing around those lush lips of hers.Explain it In part, just say I was startled or something DODGE THE BLASTED QUESTION THIS IS THE WORST AAAAAAGH Try to do a full explanation (Roll 3d10, first three rolls count) Other
Rolled 10, 5, 7 = 22 (3d10)>>37306930> Try to do a full explanation (Roll 3d10, first three rolls count)What's the roll for, how much spaghetti we spill while explaining?
Rolled 7, 6, 3 = 16 (3d10)>>37306930>[x] Try to do a full explanation (Roll 3d10, first three rolls count)C'mon!
Rolled 1, 1, 10 = 12 (3d10)>>37306930> Try to do a full explanation (Roll 3d10, first three rolls count)
>>37306947That sure is a roll.
>[x] Get lost in thought staring at said lush lipsSorry not sorry.
>>37306944How much Maria can (force herself to) explain. Pasta ratio miiiight factor into it as well~10 - 15 minutes to close. Apologies for the delay, this had to be beaten into shape and grew much longer in the process.
>>37305938It's not bullying if it's the truth.
>>37306930>[X] Try to do a full explanation (Roll 3d10, first three rolls count)>a slight smile playing around those lush lips of hers.Holy shit Maria you are so fucking gay.
>>37306999All good Hex, you just got to keep chipping away at them
>>37306999So is it best of first 3? Best sum or individual rolls? Are crits a thing?10, 6, 10 is nice. 22 is great. 7, 1, 10 sounds fun though.And we can take delays, we only bully because of love.
>>37307005>Holy shit Maria you are so fucking gay.She's such a disappointment to her parents...
>>37306960He almost rolled as bad as that time in DAQ when I got >1, 1, 1and got our arm shot off by a teammate.
>>37306944>>37306946>>37306947So... 7, 1, 10two out of three ain't so bad, right?
>>37307018>implications all over the place
>>37306930I still don't get what happened? Last time i checked, something was jumping/flying so Maria just tried to knock it down. Wasn't that what happened? If it is so, it should be obvious what Maria did. Why would they be questioning her actions? What is going on?
>>37307018Bitch please you know Ma and Pa are proud of her for catching a dragon.
>>37307018Anon pls.Best!Ma and Best!Pa will support Maria in her life no matter what.Even if it is a bit unorthodox.
>>37307041it was a teacher and so an inappropriate responseI think
>>37307016>7, 1, 10 sounds fun though.>>37307025>So... 7, 1, 10Where are you getting these from? I'm pretty sure its just best sum out of 3 which would be 22.
>>37306930> Try to do a full explanation (Roll 3d10, first three rolls count)
>>37307066Why is Maria the guilty one if a teacher flies to her first thing she opens her door?
>>3730707110 and 1 cancel out each other for the first so take the 71 is a crit so take that10 is a crit so take that as wellI guess?>>37307089because it's a teacher?
>>37306999>Apologies for the delay, this had to be beaten into shape and grew much longer in the process.Well, this thread probably only has one more day in it.So if you really try you could probably get another update out.We believe in you senpai!
>>37307041Yeah, I'm confused too. She opens the door and something comes flying straight at her and people don't understand why she tried to defend herself?
>>37307107What the fuck kind of rules are these and when the fuck were they introduced?I am confused as shit about what you're going on about.
>>37307128No one has any idea what's going on right now anon, thats why spaghetti is spilling and explanations are being attempted.
>>37307107>10 and 1 cancel out each other for the first so take the 7>1 is a crit so take that>10 is a crit so take that as well>I guess?That makes no sense at fucking all.Do please explain for this retard how that works because I'm not seeing a 1 anywhere in the the first set of rolls I rolled.
>>37307107>because it's a teacher?What difference does that make? Why did it/he/she came flying at the group when the door opened?>>37307153Shouldn't it be obvious though? Didn't the others just see the teacher flying towards the three girls as soon as they opened the door?
>>37307089>>37307066>>37307041We went OPERATOR on a harmless lizard thing and broke into our room. That's what happened. It's probably Eri's pet and from her perspective we were overreacting as fuck.> dorks gonna dork
>>37307185>see the teacher flyingUhh u wot m8?Where the hell did the teacher come from? It's some winged beast thing that Eri apparently has control of. Go read the OP.
>>37307191>HarmlessWe opened the door and it comes flying and screeching at us. Harmless is the last thing you'd think with split-secend decision making.
>>37307191Wait. What about the teacher then? The flying thing was not a teacher like anons just said? Is a teacher around but not what flew? Or is there no teacher at all?
>>37307209It came from >>37307066
>>37307224Where the fuck did you get the teacher from anon? Go reread the update in the OP. There is no teacher.
>>37307224There is no teacher. I don't know where anyone got that from but it's wrong.
>>37307224>Or is there no teacher at all?There is no teacher, see >>37307191 >>37307243>>37307244
So>Eriadne's pet monster which Maria never seen before flew to Maria's face first thing she opened the door.>Maria knocked the thing downIt should be pretty easy to explain.
>>37307222While sure it's possible it was just being friendly, there's absolutely no way Maria would have known, as she's never seen this creature before. Any normal person would assume it's attacking.
>>37307282I think the difficult bit about explaining is the whole Deep Training issue and how that might not be a comfortable topic for Maria to talk about.
>>37307282I assume it's a common pet from Eriadne's home and Maria's reaction would be like someone suplexing your dog because it jumped on them.Alongside the deep training and the totem stuff.
>>37307303She doesn't need to eplain deep training.>A monster came flying at my face.>I thought it was hostile.>I tried to defend myself and my friends.>>37307319It sounds hilarious as fuck in that perspective.
>>37307328>She doesn't need to eplain deep training.>>37306913>'I'm sorry, I just kind of thought everyone was going to die so my Deep Training set off and then I heard some weird voice'?Well questions have been raised.
>>37307342She didn't say that out loud. She just thought that explanation would sound ridicilous. She doesn't need to use such an explanation regardless, so it doesn't matter.
>>37307328>It sounds hilarious as fuck in that perspective.Especially when they follow it with "I thought it was about to kill all of us".
Well, it seems we have reached the end of this thread then.
>>37307452not quite, we're only at 271 posts, still many hours left in it if we are conservative with posting, and Hex can always make another immediately to continue on with the next update if this one 404's before its done.
>>37307473>Hex can always make another immediately to continue on with the next update if this one 404's before its done.Unfortunately, he will never actually manage to do this but yeah I guess.Well, just have to run on slow posting mode from now on. Say bumping from page 9 only until the end.Maybe move some discussion to ghost posting on this thread.
>>37307496Hmmm? He's near-immediately made new threads before. Even if his overall updating speed has been poor even in those.
Closing, counting, writing. Sorry was making food.>>37307010>>37307125As you have written, so it shall be.>>37307016Total number of successes.
>>37307005>>37307018"They're not having sex, they're married."
>>37307753We'll wait warmly as many days as you need!
>>37307753What did you make?
>>37307977Just a simple Wok thing with African touches.>>37307937Let's hope it won't be many, then.>>37307884> this comic...Wat.
>>37308016Go Get a Roomie! is a nice webcomic indeed.
>>37305777>>37306913Geez, Maria got really, gay really fast.
>>37308336Not really anon, she just doesn't have the attention to spare moderating her impressions since it's all on her massive fuck-up and how to fix it right now. Can't blame her for wayward thoughts.
>>37308336Everyone is gay for Eriadne.
>>37306913>. One of my teachers speculated I wasn't quite "complete" yet, though Pa insisted to say "my training" wasn't and to not worry too much about it.So guard are... produced?
>>37308393>doesn't have the attention to spare moderating her impressions>lush lips>riend's impossibly beautiful faceNow listen, there isn't anything wrong with it, but those impressions are mega gay.
>>37308336>>37308465I blame still being kind of high as well as Liliana's lewd aura.
>>37308465Yeah but I'm saying she's no more or less gay than before, her thoughts are just more modest when she's able to actually pay attention to them.
>>37308437Yeah, it was touched upon in one of the threads.Quite brutal, actually.
>>37308545>>37308437See>>37306913>Focus, focus, force your body to obey! I can feel myself grow a little more cold and pale, my mind keeping the urge to flush crimson just barely under control. Imagining a golden string of light from center of my head going down into my chest I force my heart to beat slower, breaths calming.She's got some Space Marine-tier mojo going on. She's been altered but seems to consider it normal.
>>37308545Oh, what do they do? Link?> tfw Maria is traumatized and that's the reason she's so confused and latched onto Eri so hard
>>37308659This is getting a bit silly.
>>37308705You're getting a bit silly.
>>37308659She and Eriadne latched on to one another because their relative upbringings made it natural for them to do so. Her affection for Eriadne is another thing entirely, to be honest, and it seems Lilliana's gifts have made it more obvious in her thoughts what she sees in Eriadne is more than just that initial 'lowly guard, upstanding noble' reaction they started off with. Maria is so far in the closet Narnia is a dim light on the horizon.
>>37308896Luckily she has some friends to help her find the way put.
>>37310441Eri's like a giant air raid siren and Holywood-style sign above Narnia then?
>>37310471The you have Eva and Liliana sitting in the air control tower as well.
>>37308545>Quite brutal, actually.What, the Medium post? That was pretty tame compared to RL spec op EIT training.
>>37308896I see fun things in drunk!Maria's future.
>>37310487Too bad they're too busy fingerbanging each other (possibly while eating out/sucking off someone else) to pay attention to the field.
>>37310754I wouldn't discount Senra like that.She's pretty attentive around stuff.
>>37310754The Senra was confirmed Bi, at least in the meta, right?
>>37310754Please anon, the lolis are pure.
>>37311176> Liliana> the girl who managed to get Maria "I really have no idea how to handle someone my age forget younger"-fucking Antioch hot and bothered> innocentYea no, a girl that can turn someone who has a sugar mommy/daddy complex into a lolilover s in no way pure.
>>37311230She's still pure anon. Pure cuteness.
>>37311059The North is culturally bisexual, which is a lot less magical realm than it sounds like because they basically just don't categorize or penalize it. I like that because fuck labels.
>>37311639Like >>37247646>https://medium.com/@ATaleOfWitches/the-path-of-absolution-i-d67de4cf33b0this here. Or are you talking of something said in the thread?
>>37311677No, I don't mean that shit or shit was at that shit hole.It was in the thread.
>>37311720Which thread? Got a number?
>>37311739Of course not.
So how wet do you guys think Maria's panties are right now?
>>37312728>>37312777We're really going to have to change them before someones notices that she's about to sploof herself.
>>37312026They're bone dry. She's too embarrassed to be aroused by anything, regardless of her realization of how pretty Eriadne is.Which is a tragedy, but also true.
>>37313201That's the most likely theory.
New thread better be soon Hex!
