You are Ur'shal, chieftain of the Stonetusk Clan, currently in council with your lieutenants as you plan your next move. You plan to personally lead a force of orcs out to the borders of your clan's territory to ambush and kill as many Tongueripper scouts as possible, a good way to whittle down the numbers of the overgrown mutants before the inevitable assault on your lands.Meanwhile, Or'kug and Dru'ak will be heading north with a party to try and convince the Skyhunter Clan's mining camp to abandon their belligerent chieftain and sign up with your clan. You have few enough warriors that you'd rather do this without a fight, but if the diplomatic approach doesn't work, your lieutenants are more than ready to seize the valuable mine and its slaves by force.The old shapeshifting priest Vor'zal and your lieutenant Ya'zar meanwhile will be tracking down whatever decided to do away with one of your clanmates, a creature apparently capable of reducing a full-sized orc to little more than a burned and desiccated finger with none of your clanmates the wiser.Finally, in the interest of improving the supplies in your camp, you are planning to send a group of orcs south to cut down some trees from the edge of the jungle, hopefully without the Skinchangers catching wind of your actions and staging a raid on the group. Your old and knowledgeable shaman Ku'zag has assured you that most Skinchangers lack the control to change during daylight hours, so as long as your pack ensures it is long gone from the jungle's edge by sunset, they should avoid any serious trouble.The only question now is how many orcs you want to send on these missions...Tongueripper Hunt>10>20>40>60Skyhunter Mining Camp>10>20>40>60Hunting the killer>No other Orcs>5>10>20Logging>10>20>40

>>37752356Tell them to evolve into quantum orcs so they can be in two different places at once.
>>37752291>60Those bastards are tough as shit and we'll want to keep losses down, so we need a signficant numerical advantage.>40While we need enough to potentially fight, moving too large forces through the mountains that are ostensibly under the control of hostiles, doesn't sound like a good idea.>5We have strong hero units on this, if the enemy had signficant numbers, we wouldn't have missed them and any traces of them and this group needs to be mobile and subtle enough to corner this enemy.>20Any more would keep the camp too empty.

The Tonguerippers are the biggest concern, and while you may outnumber their scouting parties heavily, you also know that the abyss-crazed berserkers are not to be underestimated. A large group of sixty warriors will ensure that you can crush as many Tonguerippers as possible without any serious losses on your side.As for the others, the mining camp mission will definitely need a lot of warriors.“Or'kug, Dru'ak, pick out fourty warriors between you, when you take the camp, the Skyhunters will probably retaliate, you need enough of you there to hold it.”“Of course, don't leave us waiting forever for reinforcements though, it won't just be the Skyhunters who try to dislodge us from the mountains once they hear about this,” Or'kug replies, giving a thin, humorless smile.You grunt in acknowledgement, moving on to the next of the missions.“Ya'zar, pick out ten warriors to join you in tracking down whatever is responsible for our missing clanmate. I want it found and dealt with before it can strike again,” you growl.“No problem, chieftain. I still don't know the whole clan all that well, but I'm sure one of your other lieutenants can point me to some warriors with enough subtlety for the hunt,” he shrugs.“Also, Zo'rok, put together a logging party of twenty orcs to go down to the jungle and cut as much wood as they can bring back within the next three days. Make sure they know not to be anywhere near the jungle's edge after dark.”“You want anyone leading that one, Ur?” your friend asks.>No, I'm sure they can handle it>Yes (who?)
>>37753260>>No, I'm sure they can handle it
>>37753260>No, I'm sure they can handle it
>Succubi are not abyssal. They are divine servants of a particular deity, not that you know the details of said deity yet. I'm scared, I just know fucking a succubus would get voted for, but it's really not a good idea.>>37753260>Yes, someone cautious(I don't know, to be honest)
>>37753260Quick reminder, who do we have left?
>>37753350yeah that would be nice.
>>37753260>Yes (who?)>Juk'ruk and/or Or'kazOr'kaz is a smith he knows what wood to pick ( hopefully ), Juk'ruk is just lazy but an experienced hunter.
>>37753342I imagine one of the higher end fertility godess gifts would be immunity against such beings.
>>37753260>Yes (who?)>Zo'rokI think he's still free and he was one of the few who has the know-how to pick out the medicinal herbs wew ere short on.On a side-note, what did we end up doing with the SKinchanger we captured?
>>37753514A good choice
>>37753514True on Or'kaz, but I'm not sure on Juk'ruk being a good choice.I also think a former Goatfoot would also know what wood to bring, since they were the ones to make bows recently.>>37753570Nothing yet.
>>37753342>I'm scared, I just know fucking a succubus would get voted for, but it's really not a good idea.I fail to see how that's a more terrifying concept than trying to fuck the fire dragon in the jungle.>>37753350>>37753459Zo'rokKoz'rakK'zalaSho'kaJuk'rukOr'kazYa'zadaBra'kur
If we're going to be making bows, don't forget that we also need arrow heads and feathers for fletching for the arrows.
>>37753686>Bra'kurYes. Please let the great Bra'kur have to report back.I love him
>>37753686Oh, so she's a red or gold then? Nice to know.Hope red, that is going to be an amusing clash of ego's that makes the ogress look mild in comparison.
>>37753686>I fail to see how that's a more terrifying concept than trying to fuck the fire dragon in the jungle.One is auto-death with no escape where you burn in hell afterward, the other is just very likely death with no hell?
>>37753514I'll go with Or'kaz actually. He ought to have a decent eye as a weapon smith... and maybe a goatfoot or two if they know anything about being a bow-maker. He'd do with supervision though I don't want him falling into bad habits again.Any picks gentleorcs? I'm kinda leaning towards Zo'rok for his sneaky bastard nature and how they're going to be dangerously close to elves doing this. He's about the best counter sneak we got at the moment.
>>37753686>>37753260>Yes (who?)>Juk'ruk and/or Or'kazI'mma vote for those two.
>>37753686Well, for one thing, a fire dragon is just a dragon. Sure, dragons are a scary bunch, but they're a relatively well-known variable. Their magical capabilities are things we could encounter with any magic user, and otherwise they're just big not-lizards with breathweapons.Succubi, on the other hand, are some kind of creatures using divine magic specifically relating to sex, possibly about sucking out life-force.
>>37753686Warlord its fucking /tg/ and this is orc quest. If it has pussy they will try to smash it. regardless of chance of death.Hell they want to fuck a dragoness. that thing would literally crush us if it rolls on top!>>37753803You're forgetting the part where a succubi would likely be abyssal and a very bad idea to bang. it'd either kill us or brainwarp us and then our clan goes the way of the toungerippers.
>>37753838>You're forgetting the part where a succubi would likely be abyssal and a very bad idea to bang.Nah, not abyssal.I've mentioned it before, but "demons" is a human term to refer to divine servants that they consider evil.Horrors is the term to refer to things from the abyss.
>>37753838>>Succubi are not abyssal.Do you even read the thread? But dragons also have a humanoid form, so it's not like we'd HAVE to fuck her in her dragon form.
>>37753838He just said they're not abyssal you fucking downy.
From thread 26:>“I was thinking about what you said, about drugging the Skinchanger to keep her docile. Do we have enough resources to do it?”>“We should, although it will leave us short on supplies. Next time you go to the jungle, if you could take Zo'rok, or some elf slave who knows plants, to bring back more for me that would be useful,” Ku'zag grumbles.Kind of relevant.
>>37753766>red or goldThat's not how dragons work in the setting.
>>37753686Send Koz'rak to supervise Or'kaz.
Looks like we've got a tie, so let's have another vote between the options of:>No-one>Zo'rok>Or'kaz and Juk'ruk
>>37754013>Or'kaz and Juk'ruk
>>37753904Nah I don't read your bickering much when it comes to fucking things anymore. not after the whole troll jizz discussions and the sheer waifufag fighting. I'm in it for mass mayhem and slaughter.>>37754013If thats you warlord I pick>Zo'rok
>>37754013>>Or'kaz and Juk'rukTripcode, by the way.
>>37753933I know, but Zo'rok is too important for fetch wood and herbs.
>>37753992I know she's a fire dragon, but anon thought this was according to some other system of dragons in a different setting.In here there are just Fire, Earth, Water, and Air dragons.It's also not certain that Fire dragons are ACTUALLY red, I think there's some color variation between individuals, and there were talks of making new classifications and further dividing the kinds, since some dragons have different colored breathweapons, some have feathers, etc.But yes, the dragonwaifu in the jungle is probably red and feathered, as far as I recall Lordy saying things about her.>>37754013>>Or'kaz and Juk'ruk
>>37754013>>Zo'rokHe can get herbs
>>37754013Whoops, dropped my trip.
>>37754013>Or'kaz and Juk'rukand some nameless orcs for the herbs.
>>37754084I dont remember Warlord ever saying she's feathered.>>37754013>Zo'rok
>>37754058That was literally the first post about the subject, and I expressed in it that I hope people don't think with their dicks if we ever encounter a succubus.Drop off from your high horse.
>>37754013>Zo'rok>>37754061We're present at camp ourselves and have half a dozen more people we can send after the Tonguerippers.We can spare him for this and we do really need to restock our supplies.Besides, if you really think so send at least an elf that knows herbs.>>37754110There are no nameless orcs that know hebs.Zo'rok is the only one qualified because he is the only one that spent time apprenticed to the Shaman.
>>37754172>There are no nameless orcs that know hebs.We have over 150 orcs, some of them must know about herbs.
>>37754119I seem to remember him saying that it's likely, since she grew up in a swamp/forest.
Rolled 2 (1d2)...and unless I counted wrong, it's another tie.Well okay, guess I'll roll for it.1: Or'kaz and Juk'ruk2: Zo'rok
>>37754354Zo'rok it is.Writing.
>>37754257You are over estimating the usefulness of stat-less orcs outside of battle. When they become useful they get a name.
>>37754119Fire dragons can have feathers, but they don't always.
>>37754257150 orcs, all of which grew up in wastelands, only 30 of which grew up in a clan with a Shaman old enough to have any knowledge about herbs and only one of which lasted long enough as that Shaman's apprentice to identify the herbs needed in spite of never having been in a jungle before.And that orc is Zo'roc.
>>37753766I say we seduce this red dragon. Orcish Courtship/Krogan Poetry, we can afford some nice gifts for her. Folding the cult into our band would save us the effort of taking her group down too.
You nod.“Yeah, I want you to lead it, Zo'rok. While you're down there see if you can gather up enough herbs to keep Ku'zag from complaining,” you grin.“No herbs in existance could do that, Ur,” Zo'rok cackles, as you hear a snort from the old shaman.“Alright, you all know what you have to do, but the most important thing right now is not getting caught unprepared by the Tonguerippers or Slaagyr. If any of you spot any sign of an impending attack while you're out on your missions, you come back and report on it immediately.”Your lieutenants all voice their agreement, the group breaking up to go their separate ways to prepare.>Be Or'kug>Be Dru'ak>Be Vor'zal>Be Ya'zar
>>37754539>afford some nice giftsYeah, like some part of Slaggyr's corpse.Not the heart though. We're gonna eat that.I'm really thinking of what bodypart of him could not have some cool effect on us if we used it right, that we can give away like this.
>>37754539Well its certainly one use for the metric tone of useless gold we have.
>>37754524>>37754389The Goatfoot lived near the forest, chopped wood for bows, used poisons and they had a shaman. I deduced at least one of them knows something about herbs.
>>37754637You're really exaggerating our wealth.>>37754614>Be Dru'akEither him or Or'kug.
>>37754614>Be Vor'zalIt was fun being an animal.
>>37754614>Be Vor'zalPrimal rage.
>>37754625Scales, bones and teeth could be useful.I really hope we can ride our dragon waif into battle.
>>37754705We know a few tombs with allot of gold in them, Very easily gather enough up to be alluring to a dragon, if the whole sleeping on gold part is still a thing.
>>37754614>>37754625Wait. is a Dragons corpse useful as far as rituals and shit?Could Ku'zag get some real use out of Slaggyrs corpse.
>>37754614>>Be Dru'ak>>37754705We found a cavern half filled with gold.
>>37754794Bits of powerful creatures are always valuable components for alchemy and enchantment.Dragons are most definitely powerful creatures.
>>37754794I don't know, but even if it is.We're the fucking chief.I want to deliver the killing blow to Slaggyr, drink his blood and eat his still beating heart, then bathe in what is left of his blood.Something really cool might happen if we do, I imagine.
>>37754614 >Be Vor'zal
>>37754539> Krogan PoetrySo how do we handle that?Name her the brightest rose in the jungle?> Dragon: "I-Im your R-rose?"> blushing intensifies> Ur'shal- "What's a rose by the way?
>>37754794Don't remind me of necrobro...
>>37754877This quest isn't like that. Stop.
Looks like Vor'zal is the winner.Writing.
>>37754877WE SHALL EAT ICE CREAM FROM ITS SKULL!
>>37754947we can rape people into mindbroken submission, but not bathe in blood?
>>37754890Hehe, it could be fun if she's really arrogant but gets all shy about sex and romance.
>>37754947What do you mean? We're an orcish warlord who wishes to grab power and raid his people to glory.Eating dragon flesh might give us some awesome shit, since dragons are powerful things, and blood is generally used to represent life force in many cultures. It's a perfectly reasonable idea. Although I admit it might be better to discuss with Ku'zag, incase a dragon heart can get us some really nice rituals.
>>37754973A dragon Skull would make the best soup bowl.>>37755011I have no problem with it if it is something Ur'shal would do. But don't try to "rule of cool" it into us getting some sort of power up.
>>37755011Personally I just don't see the point, We'd get all sticky.
>>37755052dont just assume that we'd get some sort of power up.
>>37755080I'm not the guy who originally suggested it, I just thought you saying this wasn't that kind of quest was dumb.
>>37755080I'm personally in favor of doing things by Rule of Cool just for its own sake and regardless of any mechanical advantage. I mean, bathing in the blood of your enemies should always be its own reward
>>37755120I'm not.I'm saying we might.Sure, ask Ku'zag about it, but if he says it's a possibility, I hope you'll have no problem with doing it.
>>37755120It would bolster our morale and damage enemy morale.You have to be equal parts gengas khan and kamana.
>>37755080>being an übermensch orc warlord-to-be>not doing things by rule of cool when it's on line with your religionkek
>>37755156Sure let's ask.If so then sure
>>37755219Well, no need to ask right now though.Before we go against Slaggyr is about the time for Ur to start planning these kinds of things, I think, so let's ask then.
>>37755132How is that cool if you aren't a 14 year old Edgelord?
>>37755290Ur'shal is a 16 year old orc who loves battles and bloodshed.
>>37755290I think an orc bathing in his enemies blood is cool, and I'm neither fourteen nor particularly an edgelord. What about blood sport and being particularly zealous in fighting is 'edgy'?
>>37755362He also likes sex. That doesn't mean he wants to roll around in cum.
>>37755362Bathing in blood is fucking retarded and only good for 14 year old edgelords.
>>37755362Ur'shal is more mature than his age implies.
>>37755385I can understand liking killing, we are an orca, but I really don't see the point in the whole blood thing, if we know it'd give us something that'd be another story.
>>37755396We could just paint runic symbols on our body with blood. Maybe we can get power that way
Not really any point to bathe in blood unless it has a beneficial quality. Course, we could dye a banner in dragons blood and rename our tribe at that moment, since it will be the point were we have dealt with all current foes.
You are Vor'zal, priest of Tak'zaya Ska. You are currently being an orc, because you have not been an orc in a long time. You had forgotten how frustrating being an orc could be. Still, while living as a beast is far more to your liking, you have some scraps of concern for the future of your people, so for now you will aid this young chieftain until he no longer needs you, then perhaps you will spend a few years as a Needleback in the Deep Wastes.At least the chieftain knows how to use your skills best. You are to hunt something which killed one of his clan. It stinks, you do not think you will have trouble hunting it. You also do not think that it is a thing you will wish to eat, it reeks of acrid chemicals and dry flesh, and inhaling too deeply brings an unpleasant chill to your throat.The lieutenant you are accompanying is gathering the other orcs, you are glad to leave it to him, you do not know who the other orcs are. You have trouble telling orcs apart still, perhaps you will relearn it someday. First you are relearning how to speak orc words with an orc tongue, such a pain.(cont)
>>37755398it work in that one myth were the dragons blood made the dudes skin unbreakable of course in that he was told to bath in it
>>37755442Bathing in it was an exaggeration, I meant like, getting an arterial spray in our face and kind of shaking our hair into it
>>37755489dropped ur trip Warlord!
>>37755471why are you making random baseless assumptions like this?
>>37755398>being this bumblastedOrcs literally have gods who condone being a warrior walking in open flames and cutting down everyone in your path.Koz'rak enjoyed the fight in the mountains where he got covered in blood.Sho'ka literally got dripping wet about fucking on top of the slain corpse of an enemy troll.We have a god who supports using torture and ruining corpses to strike fear in the heart of our enemies.And bathing yourself in the blood, which is often thought of as the life force, of a very powerful being, a dragon, that he just killed in the heat of a huge battle, is too far?I hope you at least don't have a problem with the heart eating, if it has the possibility of something cool.
>>37755489You stare into the waste while you wait. The stink and noise of the camp is distracting, sweat, blood, fluids, booming voices and moaning slaves. You blank it out, your ears twitching, sniffing the air. Rootsuckers to the east, small family group, it makes you hungry. Bloatfrog hiding in a cave nearby too, planning to ambush the rootsuckers most likely. The acrid stink is vague now, but you can still smell it.The lieutenant arrives with some other orcs. You turn to watch them, you are fortunate with this lieutenant, he is accompanied by a warg, so you are less likely to mix him up with one of the other orcs in the pack. The warg is an old thing, past its prime but still filled with stubborn fury. You like it.“Alright, so how are we going to do this, priest?” the lieutenant asks.>Ignore question, assume animal form and scout ahead.>Ignore question, follow trail, expect pack to follow.>Let the warg follow the trail, stay with the group.>>377555114chan seems to be dropping my trip every damned post today, don't know why.
>>37755523>Let the warg follow the trail, stay with the group.
>>37755523>Ignore question, follow trail, expect pack to follow.
>>37755523>>Ignore question, follow trail, expect pack to follow.
>>37755523>>Ignore question, follow trail, expect pack to follow.The warg will understand
>>37755480>>37755398>>37755290Jesus Christ, the people thinking blood bathing is cool are by far less pedantic and obnoxious then you fucking cunts. If we had the knowledge, I'd push for blood sprinklers just to watch you retards froth
>>37755545from wikipedia>Odin, posing as an old man, advises Sigurd to dig trenches also to drain the blood, and to bathe in it after killing the dragon; bathing in a dragon's blood confers invulnerability. Sigurd does so and successfully kills Fafnir; Regin then asked Sigurd to give him Fafnir's heart for himself. Sigurd drinks some of Fafnir's blood and gains the ability to understand the language of birds. Birds advise him to kill Regin, since Regin has also been corrupted by the ring and is plotting Sigurd's death. Sigurd beheads Regin, roasts Fafnir's heart and consumes part of it. This gives him the gift of "wisdom" (prophecy).
>>37755605I have no problem if it gains us something and im the middle one.It's the pointless "hurr let bathe in blood" shit that I dont condone.
>>37755627>>37755592Funny thing is that isn't in our quests' universe.So yeah.
>>37755653Who gives a fuck? It'd probably gain us benefits via the Orc Gods seeing Urushal getting into it and being like 'damn, this nigga is srzs, bless him.' Otherwise, scare tactic?
>>37755689Yeah but its a reason to bathe in blood without being a "14 year old edgemaster"
>>37755605Well fuck you too?Blood bathing sounds cool, rather messy in action, so a point to it would be preferable.
>>37755689Doesn't our Hunter Goddess approve of hunting strong monsters, eating their flesh and wearing their skin? If you think it's retarded take a bone with the Gods in this quest
>>37755710Its also a very silly one unless the shamans and legends can give us an actual reason.>>37755742Like that. Thats an actual damn reason to do things like this.
>>37755523>Ignore question, follow the trail, expect pack to follow we orc Riddick now?
>>37755709Nah, we use the dragons skull to mount a throne on, reinforce it and lay with metals and gems so it won't crack when we have our harem laid out over it while we lord over.
>>37755812Warlord, you wanna comment on the blood thing? I'm curious as to your thoughts
>>37755605>Anon, age 13 was found dead in his mothers home home earlier today after making a post on 4chan.>He was found in the basement missing his head, limbs and genitals, the body was missing all but 2 millilitres of blood>His mother was quoted as saying "I tried to warn him, but he just really wanted to make that post, I knew that much edge wasn't safe."
>>37755837>And nothing of value was lost
>>37755835Use. The. Ask.You can get your answer and even get Canon uses or none at all while not cluttering the thread.
>>37755837>>37755864I thought summer was a few months away, what are you two crazy kids doing out of school?
>>37755835No please, Warlord let the anons yell at eachother, it's amusing.
>>37755910They are the cancer that is killing /tg/.I miss the good old days when Blatant Fetish Quest was still running.
>>37755835Dude, calm down. If there's any blood or heart eating thing I'm sure our goddamn shaman will let us know when it comes up. Otherwise ask on the Ask.fm page and stop adding to the post count here.
>>37756015Holy crap Snapple did deign to join us. Go figure.
>>37755910I'd rather this kind of autism shit up other threads
While orcs are a-okay with getting covered in blood in battle, actually bathing in a big pool of it would be considered a little strange.Now doing something dramatic on the battlefield like tearing out a dangerous enemy's heart and eating it to make the enemy force collectively shit themselves is something that several of the orc gods could appreciate for various reasons.
>>37756022Uh, I am calm. I was just honestly curious.
>>37756160So if we were to say "I WILL BATHE IN YOUR BLOOD" it would most likely just be an expression?Well that's fine, eating our enemies heart in the middle of a battle sounds way more badass anyway
>>37756160UR'SHAL, DEVOURER OF HEARTS, MASTER OF THE AXE, CHAMPION OF THE GODS!
>>37756160>no Elizabeth Bathory style blood bathingawwwstill, thanks for that. I figured the Gods would be down for a metal approach to battle
>>37756221>Elizabeth Bathory style Blood BathingIf this were a Vampire Quest then I'd be all for it
>>37756215No, it probably means that we're fighting something significantly taller that us. That way it's pretty likely we'll hip get showered in its blood and gore when we gut it.
>>37756221>BathoryNot sure if that be the demonic or abysal path in this setting.
>>37756321What if we were an orc vampire? Hrmm...
>>37756365Probably both.>>37756389We aren't becoming a vampire just so you can be edgy.
>>37756389>What if we were an Orc vampire? Hrmm...Well, first off we'd be abandoned by the orcish gods and find ourselves reliant on the vampiric pantheon. Second, we'd probably have our work cut out for us surviving since we'd be a noob.
>>37756503>first off we'd be abandoned by the orcish gods and find ourselves reliant on the vampiric pantheonsource?
>>37756503>vampiric pantheonDont think that exists.We'd still have favor with the orcish pantheon.
>>37756221>>37756365>>37756365Wait, have the same kind of myth about her like Dracula spread to the west? You guys do realize she was a real person who wasn't a vampire, right? Is there some established mythos about her in modern fantasy I'm not aware of?
>>37756571>We'd still have favor with the orcish pantheon.how? we wouldn't be an orc anymore as far as the gods are concerned,
You crouch low, sniffing again. Your quarry came from the north and returned to the north, towards the mountains. It moves light and fast, and it is quiet and cunning. You will enjoy this.“Right, good plan,” you hear the lieutenant sigh as you stalk out into the wastes silently, sniffing the air, the orcs following behind you.You stick to the train as closely as possible, which proves difficult. This thing does not seem concerned about difficult terrain, narrow crevasses or sheer rock faces, going straight over them as if they were flat ground. The lieutenant, the warg, and most of the warriors are keeping up well, though a couple start to fall behind. You will keep an eye on them, if your prey seeks to pick off stragglers, you will be ready when it reveals itself.You clamber up on top of a large rock following the trail, squinting into the noonday sun peeking between the looming shadows of the Howling Mountains. You have followed this trail a long way, it came out of the mountains then. You peer over the edge of the rock, finding something lodged in a small gap, a pair of stingworms hissing at you as you pull your prize loose.(cont)
>>37756638You stare at it, it stares back. Half an orc head. The top half. Probably the missing orc. Your fingertips brush over the edges of the neat, circular hole drilled through the back of the skull, the dessicated flesh of the face twisted into a rictus howl of agony.The same stink of acrid chemicals clings to the skull, it makes your nose itch. It is stronger, your prey touched this part of the body far more recently than the finger you found before.“What did you find?” the lieutenant asks.You show him the skull, making him snarl.“Any idea what could do a thing like that, priest?”You don't know, so you toss the skull aside. The thing you are hunting is definitely nearby, do you wish to change your tactics here, or continue as before?>Continue following the trail at the front of the group.>Go on ahead, hunt it solo.>Make one of the orcs act as bait so you can strike.
>>37756571If there are vampires then at minimum there is (or at least was) a vampiric blood god. Probably also a god of bone and corruption, but that's less necessary.As for the Orcish pantheon. Well, we'd be dead and our soul denied to them. They'd probably be a bit miffed with the mockery of Ur we'd become to be blunt. So yeah, no favor there.

>>37756667>Make one of the orcs act as bait so you can strike.
>>37756667>Continue following the trail at the front of the group.Can you tell us about vampire orcs, and how they work with our gods?I think some anons are pulling shit out of thier asses.
>>37756667>Continue following the trail at the front of the group.
>>37756636No, we'd be an orc with a disease. Like skinchangers the !NOT Werewolves
>>37756736A vampire orc is not necessarily lost to the orcish gods. Such an undead orc would have to work far harder to prove his worth and loyalty to the gods however, and would have to achieve enough during his (un)lifetime to be worthy of them fighting with the Eater of Souls, patron deity of vampires, to claim the orc's soul after his final death.
>>37756844That sounds kind of cool actually. I'm not very keen on becoming a vampire orc but I don't think I'd be very upset if we did become one somehow
>>37756844thanks, and from the sounds of this could it mean we could get boons from other gods if they are neutral to orcs?
>>37756932>trying to worship multiple pantheons
>>37756932>not being dedicated to the superior orcish gods
Not happy about this after missing Thursday's thread, but my internet is playing up now.Spent the last twenty-odd minutes waiting for it to come back properly and it isn't.Going to have to call the thread there for the moment and see about continuing this thread tomorrow if it's back by then. Keep an eye on the twitter.Sorry again to everyone, this hasn't been a good week for my quest.
>>37756932You realize other pantheons would contain other gods, who function the same as orc gods right? Its not like bloodthirst is an orc exclusive. Read a book
>>37757526Hey take all the time you need, just give a heads up on the twitter page if it all goes down or something Warlord, was still fun to get some updates in.
>>37757526Shit happens man it's fine.
>>37757526Don't you worry Warlord, we'll be here when it's time again.It's almost 1am anyway, you should snooze so you can get a KWALITY Sunday.
>>37757526That's understandable, just be sure to give us an hour or more warning.Any ETA on when we can expect it at the soonest? Morning or afternoon?
>>37756932A large part of the motivation for giving someone boons is that you can ultimately claim that person's soul to join your divine servants who help you against the Abyss and anyone else you're fighting.People only have one soul.Sometimes a guy is beneficial enough to a pantheon's people as a whole that they pile belssings onto him, but as can be clearly seen with dedicated priests only worshipping one deity and the most awesome shit being held back for dedicated priests, even in the same pantheon that has limits.There's no way you're getting blessings from a pantheon that can't be sure your soul will end up with them.
>>37757600Best guess, afternoon. I'll give an hour or two warning though.
>>37757632Warlord you write a (partially) smut quest, do you have much inspiration from prior smut quests of /tg/ (or other boards)?
>>37758244He follows msq
>>37758244MSQ was his main inspiration to run the quest
