As the earth rushed to meet our fallen plane, the last thing our mind focused on was our lucky d20, flying off our pocket and bouncing around.Must have rolled critical success in SOMEBODY'S reincarnation table, because our MC wasn't just reborn into a new life with all his memories, he was reborn into an RPG world, the likes of which he always dreamed of as a fellow fa/t g/uy!!
>>38016951Can we name the Imperial Shipyards?Would Sienar Fleet Systems or Kuat Drive Yards sound better for the Imperial rock-it shipbuilding facility we're funding?
>>38016951We are here. Probably empire is happy to gwt the shop production.Going to be massive trade all around.
>>38017031I don't see why not. Kuat Drive Yards? where is that from? I was thinking in using one of the brands from Wipeout XLhttp://youtu.be/9yy0RGTaWYMBecause, you know, floating ships
>>38017191Star Wars, shipyard names.
>>38017257well, I tried, but im too blind to see the brand names on the ships, can you watch the video and tell me if you see anything?Anyway lets wait a bit for more people or start already? where were we?
>>38017277We left off at telling Aritsu about the demon invasion. Votes were at 2 for bringing Mako, Ten, and Asmund together to show her that there's international support, and 1 vote that since she has a crush on us, we don't need much evidence to convince her.
>>38017535Alright. I guess we should start. Thursdays are always slow anyway***The elven princesses (Aritsu & Sinoe) feel quite out of place in the keep. The massive building oversees the city for miles in every direction, its circular balcony allowing a complete sight by walking around it.In other times, the topmost floor was a gryphon's aviary, but it is currently empty and being used as a stargazer."So you see, this IS quite serious" -explains Eldric as everyone just stands in the large balcony, enjoying the fresh sea breaze as it blows in from the west.Aritsu nods softly. Her sister is quietly looking at the city while paying attention to the conversation"Shouldn't we warn everyone?" -asks Aritsu"That is a fair point, but doing so would cause panic. Better to quietly prepare" -says Okaba1/?
>>38017633Sinoe (Aritsu's twin) turns around towards Okaba. They really look alike, except for Sinoe's longer, braided hair."Why tell us? shouldn't you have gone to the elder council?" -she asks humbly"Well..." -starts Eldric>Maybe if we believed they would act properly, but they have done precious little of that so far.>We came to both of you because we want you back in power>Other
>>38017714>Maybe if we believed they would act properly, but they have done precious little of that so far.>We came to both of you because we want you back in power
>>38017714>Maybe if we believed they would act properly, but they have done precious little of that so far."Their actions have shown that they are too self-serving to join this alliance until it is far too late."
>>38017714>Maybe if we believed they would act properly, but they have done precious little of that so far.The current diplomatic envirorment makes it hard to do so.They are happy with a state of war. Hard to have good relations starting there.
>>38017768>>38017796>>38017835"But the laws empower the elder council until the war ends or a king claims the throne" -says Aritsu"Well...">Why don't we surrender publicly? we can give them some items as compensation, or such>That is why, we need one of you to get married>That is why, we want you to help us win quickly and with minimal loss of life. Is there such a thing as a congress we could capture with the elders inside?>Other
>>38017858>Other"That is why we brought you here. We would like to know if it would be better to have one of you marry, or to have a targeted operation against the Council to capture them and force their surrender."
>>38017858Oh, unrelated, but, i've been reading Shield Hero LN beyond of what is translated. I am so happy about a Filo Real evolving into A gorgeous redheaded 17yrs old beauty, instead of a little girl.
>>38017858>That is why, we want you to help us win quickly and with minimal loss of life. Is there such a thing as a congress we could capture with the elders inside?
>>38017858>But the laws empower the elder council until the war ends or a king claims the throne" -says AritsuWhat defines a war for the elves? Can a peace be forced on the elder council either through internal or external pressure?I don't want to reward the councils bad behavior.What are the rules for deciding or removing the council. Are there any customs regarding primancy of the throne in the face of gorss incompetance?
>>38017917>>That is why, we want you to help us win quickly and with minimal loss of life. Is there such a thing as a congress we could capture with the elders inside?At the same point, a state of war could be reconized between the council and the coalition, leading to a lightning strike soley on the council alone.This is a major threat and will need decisive leadership.
>>38017917>we want you to help us win quickly>>38017902>"That is why we brought you here. We would like to know if it would be better to have one of you marry, or to have a targeted operation against the Council to capture them and force their surrender.">>38017950But the thing is that they are not doing a bad job. Its just not a good job either. They just seized power and business as usual, except for cutting trade and taking a more xenophobic policy. Xenophobic elves, who knew, right?Looks like the votes arent very clear. Lets take a bit and see if you guys decide on something
>>38018074>But the thing is that they are not doing a bad job. Its just not a good job either. They just seized power and business as usual, except for cutting trade and taking a more xenophobic policy. Xenophobic elves, who knew, right?Yeah, but it is the type of short term planning that is more human then elven.It can go to hell too quickly, if a neighbor gets tired of elven refugees.Or a generation later the refugees decidw to get back and have a civil war.
>>38018072ah i guess this is another vote for the commando strike***"You want our help in attacking our people!?" -the elf princesses look at eachother."I am sorry, but honestly we need every nation to begin preparing against the demon threat. You would be able to do that much better than a corrupt council that may or may not believe this threat is real"The elven princess look at each other..."Well... they certainly have separated the people and exiled a fair number of us for their own political gain" -says Sinoe"w-We are agreeing to do as you say, president""You don't need to call me president outside the chess club business, Aritsu. Just Eldric will do""Alright"They explain to you that there are three sites which have enough value to stop the "war" right away.>The elder's council is a large hall in the capital tree city. Taking it during a meeting would mean capturing the elders.>The Angel Tree is the heart of the forest. Threatening it would force the elders to surrender, but it is a sacred place and even if nothing goes wrong, the people will resent the coalition for generations.>The royal palace. If one of the princesses marries and crowns a king in the Yellowleaves Throne, the elder's council will automatically cease to be valid.>OtherCaptcha: Alquia captcha is a spy and wants to steal our Makos!
>>38018313>OtherAside from the Angel Tree, what are the social ramifications of the other options? How will the people react? And who is going to marry which sister? Will it be Eldric marrying Aritsu? He strong enough that no female elf could argue against it.
>>38018313>The elder's council is a large hall in the capital tree city. Taking it during a meeting would mean capturing the elders.In a lot of ways, just walking into the meeting, shrugging off attacks and state your are here to form a just peace would be a heck of a statement.Said peace would likely mean the return of the royal family and dismal of the current council and reforming it.Or we could go in with the princesses, determin the climate of the people and see if they wre is a will for change.Have the princesses lead a march on the council would be effective.
>>38018426Well, if we take down the elder council, we would be wiping out a lot of the rights the people has been working for generations to get out of what used to be an absolute monarchy, but at this point in time, perhaps we need an absolite monarcy that can quickly give orders and have them obeyed with little fuss in order to prepare more quickly and efficiently.Do you basically want to seem like a tyran now to save everyone, or do you want to coddle them and try to figure something out?
>>38018552>Well, if we take down the elder council, we would be wiping out a lot of the rights the people has been working for generations to get out of what used to be an absolute monarchy, but at this point in time, perhaps we need an absolite monarcy that can quickly give orders and have them obeyed with little fuss in order to prepare more quickly and efficiently.Looks like the real issue is a state of war being perpetuated by the council. Shit like this happens all the time, in history. Power swings from coyncil of nobles to king, back and forth.The simpliest would be for one of them to marry.It solves things, follows tradition and does not break the nation. Is there anyone either of them is interested in and meets other requirements inregards to lineage or other things. The second easiest would be to blitzkrieg the council and enforce peace.The hardest would be to come up and offer peace, with some concessions. Which would really be more like a bribe to the council. What is there price?
>>38018690>What is there price?eh, you can probably bribe them in private with some itemsWell, do you guys want to interrogate the sisters about their love life and such?
>>38018552In times of war, emergency powers can be given to a national leader.>>38018690I agree that we should find out from the princesses if they have anyone in particular they would like to marry. Its the easiest way to resolve this.
>>38018802>eh, you can probably bribe them in private with some itemsI would place this as a second one then, better then military action. Does not upset much and would be hidden. What politican wants it known that war and peace could be bought like that.>Well, do you guys want to interrogate the sisters about their love life and such?Sure, just have Mako and Lyann sitting right next to us. For maximum Eldric embarassment.
>>38018855>>38018838"Princess..." -says Eldric, referring to both of them- "It would be easiest if you were to marry then, would it not? do you have a candidate for such a thing?""Of course, there are several" -says Sinoe- "But we do not favor any of them. A ceratin baron is quite skilled, but has too much greed and would eagerly send the armies out to seize lands, abuse the Angel tree to expand the forest, and plunge us into war" She looks at Aritsu, who continues"There is a young noble, but... he is much too timid. He would be his parent's puppet, and his father is in the council. It would turn the throne into the council's puppet" -says Aritsu and then nods back to Sinoe"Any man in the throne would have complete power, anyway. Rather than ask us if there is a man we want to marry, perhaps we should consider if there is one we would trust with the reigns of the kingdom""i... I would trust the president" -says Aritsu, which causes Sinoe to raise an eyebrownThis also causes Mako to puff her cheeks a little, and Lyann frowns but does not say anything."Alright, let's...">Talk with the baron. If he is as competent as we hope, perhaps we can reason with him.>Talk with the young noble. Let's make a man out of that elf boy!>Other
>>38019050>Other"Are you sure, Aritsu? A Human, on the throne of an Elven Kingdom? Wouldn't that cause too much unrest?"Though it does have some historical precedent.>Talk with the young noble. Let's make a man out of that elf boy!
>>38019050>"i... I would trust the president" -says Aritsu, which causes Sinoe to raise an eyebrown>This also causes Mako to puff her cheeks a little, and Lyann frowns but does not say anything.Poor Vice President. Eldric is dense a protagonist. She needs to be rather more forward.Lyann and Mako picked up in it and then took relief in how dense Eldric is. Talk about where a choice is not much of one. Either pick one of two who may or may not work out well and tie one of the sisters to them.
>>38019140Aritsu blushes softly, and lowers the tip of her ears."I see" -says Sinoe- "As expected of our older sister, It is not a bad idea. A human king would live what, 80 years? that is a short enough period our people can grith its teeth through it, but long enough to let us do what must be done!" -she completely misses how embarrassed Aritsu is, thinking its a good, cool decision"r-Right!" -Aritsu nods, trying to act like that was the idea all along"I don't really like it that much" -says Lyann- "Shouldnt it be a elf?"r-Right! a elf, right!?" -adds Mako***So, the elf kid? I don't want to say girly man or sissy boy because, well, it's an elf "male". Its redundant. This is /tg/ and we made this thread specifically to laugh at clichés and memes
>>38019320>So, the elf kid? I don't want to say girly man or sissy boy because, well, it's an elf "male". Its redundant. This is /tg/ and we made this thread specifically to laugh at clichés and memesLets meet with the kid who is so wimpy that these elven girls call him a 'girly man'.All else fails we can still make contact to bribe the council.Seems rather weird that the King has sole control.
>>38019320Eldric is unlikely to be dying so quickly, and maybe he should say that.Though its amusing that Lyann and Mako are fighting against Aritsu marrying Eldric.Maybe he should consider it more thoroughly just to tease them.
>>38019401The problem with letting the current Councilors stay in power is that they could end up becoming an impediment to our militarization campaign.Shouldn't we be looking for ways to marginalize them for the upcoming crisis?
>>38019425I like the idea of teasing them. Besides it's still a good last resort if everything else goes south and I'm sure Aritsu wouldn't mind being married to Eldric.
>>38019461>Shouldn't we be looking for ways to marginalize them for the upcoming crisis?Probably, but aimply removing things for 2 young girls who are largely untested to take over make them seem like our puppets too much.
>>38019514Which comes back to needing full powers to properly prepare the Yellowleaves kingdom.One of the princesses could marry afterwards if the Council is being too obstructionist, but we would need to be sure that the King would follow the Coalition's preparation guidelines.It may be better to just marry Aritsu to circumvent all those problems.
>>38019637well, it doesnt HAS to be Eldric and/or Aritsu. We have cousin Alard free and available. Assuming we want to rule on Eopolis, its would be nice to give him a kingdom.Im not sure we have an agreement, tho. Tease Mako and Lyann for a bit by keeping the option to marry Aritsu on the table? that's sort of mean to Aritsu, I think. Not that we haven't been assholes to her most of the time so far anyway.Want to go see the wimpy kid?
>>38019694i always felt Alard would rather be an adventurer than be a leader since seeing Eldric be an already great leader.
>>38019694I'm seriously considering the marriage to Aritsu, because its a fast resolution to the problem and gives us full control over the kingdom.I would rather speak with Aritsu later about it, because Eldric likely wouldn't want to force a political marriage on her.And yes, may as well see if the wimpy kid can be whipped into shape.
>>38019694See the wimpy kid. No need to continue teasing. Fun tontrase Mako and Lyann, not nice to Aritsu.Also once the council steps down, once one of thwm finds a quality husband the issue resolves itself otherwise.
>>38019782>I'm seriously considering the marriage to Aritsu, because its a fast resolution to the problem and gives us full control over the kingdom.I don't like it cause it hurts Mako and Lyann. Maybe if she decided that her sister rules and she joins our group afterwards it would work good.She becomes one of our companions that travels with us and gets along with Mako and Lyann better afterwards.
>>38019782im also considering the marraige for 2 reasons one i like her two she can mange the kingdoms efficiently allowing us more free time.
>>38019909uhmm... i guess you guys actually like Aritsu? well, even if we pass on marrying her NOW, we could give her a more active role in our group?http://youtu.be/5SLJJc8siyUSorry but this is best version of this songAlso, just realized that Mulan's family name is Li. If you remember the meaning of Li, good.So... going to whip the kid into shape? any plans for that? fake a kidnapping and have him heroically rescue a cute defenseless girl from evil thugs? we would provide the girl and the thugs of course. The girl could be Sinoe.Or just abduct him, chain him to a mill for a few years and have him push it? it worked for conanOther ideas?
>>38019994Couldn't talk to him first and get to know more about him before we try stuff like that? We probably should figure out what his strengths and weaknesses are before we try something drastic like putting him through kidnapping or a fake rescue when it could go horribly wrong.
>>38019994Something from our old world, physical training. Not just sending him into a dungeon with us and giving him a fuck ton of power. Make him actually work for it, discipline him when he's being whiny, congratulate him when he does something good.
>>38019994i just want to meet the kid and i would rather have her marry eldric since that is what she wants and ignoring that is even worse then how we treated her when she ran the club for us.
>>38019857>I don't like it cause it hurts Mako and LyannA valid concern, though it's still something to be considered seriously. We can see what bribes are needed to end the war, and determine things from there. Besides, it doesn't seem like either princess much likes either of the elven candidates.>>38019994Yes, I'd like to bring Aritsu in to have a more active role in our group. Same with Yin Aillyn.What if we have the princesses write a letter to the boy that in order to make him into a better candidate for King, the princesses have requested that he undergo extensive training.And then we run him through dungeons and have him do solo quests, and question what he wants from life.
>>38020082Along with one of my favorite quotes:"If you seek to aid everyone that suffers in the galaxy, you will only weaken yourself… and weaken them. It is the internal struggles, when fought and won on their own, that yield the strongest rewards... If you care for others, then dispense with pity and sacrifice and recognize the value in letting them fight their own battles. And when they triumph, they will be even stronger for the victory."
>>38019994>uhmm... i guess you guys actually like Aritsu? well, even if we pass on marrying her NOW, we could give her a more active role in our group?Lot of us did not know much about her until the short omake with her. More active roll in the group worka. Also help by pushing Mako to be more aggressive.As far as whipping him up, sometimes they just need a confidence boost. Likely his dad overshadows him badly. Alard had serious confidence issues when we first met him too. Best to get a read on him first though. Some times they just need to succeed on things
>>38020205Alright, so have the princesses write him a letter, and have someone from Eldric's group deliver it? it cant be Eldric himself because, you know, at war with the humans.
so we are gonna ignore the fact the she has a thing for eldric and that we ruined her for all other male elfs and we are not gonna take responsibility.WTF tg.
>>38020261Who could deliver it?Brass? Maybe one of the Miel's or one of their messenger Honey Fairies?>>38020270I'm for having Aritsu brought into more of our group's activities before marrying her.
>>38020270>so we are gonna ignore the fact the she has a thing for eldric and that we ruined her for all other male elfs and we are not gonna take responsibility.>WTF tg.I think we are requesting she takes a greater part of the group, not marrying right away. If Eldric does marry her, it feels more organic and natural.>>38020261Sounds good. Anyone that would be a food messenger?
>>38020270I assumed they meant to marry the whimpy kid with Sinoe, not Aritsu. Twins means there's two to choose from
>>38020361I would like twins, but I suspect I would be outvoted.
>>38020348>>38020354>>38020361ok i was just reading all the post and it looked to me that we just outright said no to the marriage and were ignoring her wishes.
>>38020361Well, it still depends on if the wimpy kid gets any better. If he still can't stand up to his family after we're done with him, then he's no good as a King.For the good of the kingdom, Eldric will then have to take the twin princesses as his brides.
>>38020392I laughed a little bit. Greedy guy, eh? im somewhat surprised noone has even suggested Mako AND Ren, honestly. I mean, at least with Ren we have interacted a lot, this is the first time Sinoe has said anything. Before now I had just mentioned her in passing twice, IIRCSo send Brass to pick him up? he IS a mercenary, we could just explain him whats up and hire him.Or you guys have other ideas? should I ask for a vote on this?
>>38020445i have a feeling the wimp wont step up due to his dad.>>38020516>im somewhat surprised noone has even suggested Mako AND Renyou dont need to speak of obvious plans
>>38020445>Well, it still depends on if the wimpy kid gets any better. If he still can't stand up to his family after we're done with him, then he's no good as a King.>For the good of the kingdom, Eldric will then have to take the twin princesses as his brides.Diary of a wimpy elf?I expect him to shape up. You can't be in the presence of the lightbringer family and stay wimpy. They will not allow it to be so.
>>38020516Other than Brass, is there a Yellowleaves adventurer in Albion we could hire that we could also trust?A Yellowleaves expat might have an easier time getting into the kingdom during a time of war.
>>38020557>I expect him to shape up. You can't be in the presence of the lightbringer family and stay wimpy. They will not allow it to be so.send him camping out with grandpa. He will come back riding a worg and chewing on ogre meat.>>38020610uhmm... oh! Grumnir and Miiyau? they were adventurers for years before we meet them
>>38020516People have said ren and mako together before.Brass and a yellow tree elf we know from Opal. They kinda owe us for breaking that kinda slave trading issue.
>>38020639I don't think we've seen them for awhile, how they been doing? Leveling up I hope.
>>38020665Ah, yes, the Yellowleaf refugees who became slaves.Maybe we should buy out their contracts and get them to staff that vacation manor in the Southern Isles that we can take Aritsu and Aillyn to during vacation this year.
>>38020665Oooh! right, I had forgotten about that. Sounds good to meSo Brass and a yellowleave elf? we can get permission for one from Honoria
>>38020783furthermore, there was that elf girl maid that served us while we were there. Kallisto? I remember I name "background elf NPCs" as "Kal" something.Kalka Kallisto KalliiraIt probably was Kallisto or Kalliira
>>38020783>So Brass and a yellowleave elf? we can get permission for one from HonoriaOf coarse once we get peace, we can get them repatriated completely.
>>38020837Her name was Kalliira.
>>38020837 Kalliira, we saved her brother too.
>>38020926>>38020942Alright, so Brass and Kalliira to deliver the letter? and then what? just take him to Eopolis to have him study in the same military school as cousin Alard for a year? what's the plan?
>>38021063btw, we are talking, and I assume we are basically Eldric's thought process, but would you prefer if all this discussion was in character?
>>38021164sureI'd like to know what her sister thinks.
>>38021063I was thinking of bringing him to Albion so that we can watch his progress and provide assistance where needed. Also so that Sinoe can watch him and see if he is someone she would like to marry.The basic idea would be to run him through dungeons as well as a physical training course.Make him dish out damage as well as tanking hits to get him used to being hit.But wouldn't Sinoe also have imprinted on Eldric as well, since she goes to school with her sister?
>>38021164In character would be good. As far as how, likely a military school like alard probably. Probably the elf princess could calmly point out the type of people she has been around when she has gone.Someone else could point out to him that she wants someone who is independent of outside influences while at the same time repects her advice and listens to her and does not treat her as a wall flower.
i still hope Eldric will become the king of yellow leaves as well and walk into the Council get yelled at by them and then have him silence them and tell the council "he will drag them kicking and screaming to greatness whether they like it or not."
>>38021186About shaping the kid up? I dont see any way she would be against it>>38021226She has hardly spent any time with him. This conversation is the longest she has spent around him.Just to make sure I got it all clear.Take kid to AlbionAdd him to the party, have him level upHave him take some actual hits (melee/tank build?)Have him spend time with Sinoe while Eldric stays away so Sinoe imprints on him once we are sure hes alrightIs that all? Oh, if we take him to Albion, where are we hosting him? are we inviting him home? paying him a hotel? its not as if we cant afford it.
>>38021330Oh alright, hold on then let me ask for a vote>Eldric marries Aritsu and/or Sinoe for political reasons. If we go this route, originally its just a marriage on paper, but over time he grows on Sinoe like both sisters grow on him (and the players) while having adventures.>We get the kid to marry Sinoe, and we adventure with Aritsu and eventually build a relationship with her while Sinoe and ... lets call him Mint, rule Yellowleaves.I think those are the options at the moment? other ideas?
>>38021337>Have him spend time with Sinoe while Eldric stays away so Sinoe imprints on him once we are sure hes alrightVet him first, and make sure that Sinoe actually learns what the boy is like before we have her talk with him directly. We don't want her to imprint on him and for him to turn out to be a bad choice.After the training send him back and see how he acts with his family before letting him near Sinoe. He must be tested before he can be allowed to meet his princess.Also, put him up in his own apartment. He must acquire his own funds from dungeon-diving. Pay for his own food and equipment from his own funds.This is a test of character as much as a physical conditioning program.
>>38021430>Eldric marries Aritsu and/or Sinoe for political reasons. If we go this route, originally its just a marriage on paper, but over time he grows on Sinoe like both sisters grow on him (and the players) while having adventures.i linked to the wrong post i will delete it when i can.
>>38021430>>We get the kid to marry Sinoe, and we adventure with Aritsu and eventually build a relationship with her while Sinoe and ... lets call him Mint, rule Yellowleaves.Thats the best, no bruised Mako/Lyann deelings too.This is good.>>38021456
>>38021430I think its premature for determining if we're going to marry both sisters.As much as I want both of them, I think Mint deserves a chance to try on his own first. If he turns out to be unsuitable, or marriage meetings with Sinoe don't turn out well, then Eldric can marry them.
th reason i say marry is we dont know if this guy could prepare for the invasion properly or even listen to us he might turn into a maga-douche after becoming a king
>>38021754>th reason i say marry is we dont know if this guy could prepare for the invasion properly or even listen to us he might turn into a maga-douche after becoming a kingEldric is already quite busy. He is the Duke in the empire, of the capital. He likely will end up ruling part of the family city. Sounds like elven king is full time too.Also managing his wives, his inevitable brood of kids, ect.
>>38021430>Eldric marries Aritsu and/or Sinoe for political reasons. If we go this route, originally its just a marriage on paper, but over time he grows on Sinoe like both sisters grow on him (and the players) while having adventures.Mako and Lyann may not like the competition, but it's not like there can be only one wife.I don't want it to feel like we pulled the chance at the throne from the kid though. I want him to be given an honest shot, and he just didn't measure up.He's still good enough for any other noble family to try to marry their daughters to, he simply didn't measure up to Sinoe's standards.
>>38021430 >>38021513>We get the kid to marry Sinoe>>38021478>Eldric marries Aritsu and/or SinoeAlright. I feel like an old lady. You know, matchmaking.Totally unrelated, but IIRC someone here is a Guilty Gear fan, right? what happened to Dizzy during/after Overture? I haven't played Xrd or anything after overture because i honestly cant follow the action on screen any more.***It is after lunch, inside one of the keep's dining halls, with Mako, Ren, Lyann, Okaba, Asmund, Alard, Aritsu and Sinoe sitting around the long table. There are plenty of empty seats.The room is quite sober, with polished, mirror-like floors and mahogany furniture. The keep maids have just rolling out the tea cart after refilling everyone's cup, leaving them alone to keep talking."Alright, lets summarize" -says Okaba- "The princesses will invite sir Mint, to stay in Albion as an extended marriage interview."Okaba makes a brief pause to sip some tea, and continues."This is so that we, the... do we have a name? I mean, as organization? Anti Demon Cabal or something like that?" -he says and pauses for a moment"Do we need one?" -asks Ren"Well, with your excellency and his highness and their highnesses at the table, we certainly are not just the Coalition" -says Asmund as he means Okaba, Ren, Aritsu and Sinoe."The Tomorrow Alliance?" -suggests Mako"Anti Apocalypsis Army? or AAA" -says Aritsu"Let's just go with nations of the Ring" -suggests Asmund- "Since our nations create a ring around the inner ocean.""Eldric, do you have a suggestions?" -asks Alard(do you?)
>>38021985You know, I actually like this look for Sinoe, face, body, hair, etc
>>38021985its two for eldric to marry
>>38021985King, you need to recount those votes, man
>>38021985"United Nations, so that we aren't defined by geographic location or any one single apocalypse scenario."And recount the votes, King.
>>38022013>>38022024it is? sorry guys, almost blind here. hold on
>>38022070i know just thought you should know.
>>38021927 >>38021478>Eldric marries Aritsu and/or Sinoe for political reasons>>38021513>We get the kid to marry SinoeOh wow you are right, sorry guys, let me retype, then. Will still ask for a suggestion for name, tho.
>>38022123what>>38022068said works and it gives a good explanation.
>>38022123I think this is not a good idea. We are ahadting lyann and mako for someone we barely know.Feela like a collect them all part of tg.
>>38022123Alright, so a political marriage which grows into friendship and then love (from Sinoe's point of view) with Aritsu cheering every step of the way (quietly), right?Only really needs to marry one of the twins, tho. You guys want to marry both to prevent succession disputes?Also, UN? damn we are going to be chairman of a UN that actually gets shit done? NOW I really feel this is a fantasy world
>>38022123There's really no need to retype.We bring Mint in, train him up, send him back to face his parents as a test, and he fails, leading to Eldric marrying Aritsu and Sinoe.That way Eldric marrying Aritsu and Sinoe won't hurt Lyann and Mako as much because it would be shown that we tried to find a good elf husband and the candidate simply didn't measure up to our expectations.
>>38022209Chairman of the UN, at the rate we're going, we're going to be the representative of every nation.
>>38022205honestly I agree with you, but its what most people want. It can be just on paper at first, tho. I'll try my damnedest to properly develop this into a nice d'aaar relationship, tho, if thats any comfort
>>38021985As you wish King, quick and dirty summation focusing only on Dizzy incoming. Spoiler Time!Valentine, an entity from the backyard, began sublimating gear cells into herself to enable her open "the cube" which would have really fucked over humanity. She needed Command Gear cells, so that meant she needed Dizzy or Sin's cells. Dizzy began to disintegrate and flow into Valentine. Presumably, as a full gear, she was vulnerable to this "remote" attack while Sin, a half-gear, was not.To prevent this, Ky sacrificed Thunderseal to literally stop time around her. This stopped her from disintegrating, but obviously you can't interact with people if you're in a time stop field.After the events of Overture Ky teams up with Dr. Paradigm (a dragon looking gear, but a running gag is to call him a bird and him getting pissed about it) to find a way to reverse the seal now that the problem was taken care of. Near the end of Xrd Dr. Paradigm and Ky figure out how to undo the time freeze and she's freed to do whatever she'd like.
>>38022209I say nay to marrying aritsu to anyone other then eldric
>>38022249i meant d'aaaw, obviously
>>38022249Nah mate have the Aritsu marriage come after lyann's and mako's marriage to eldirc
>>38022209For a race as long-lived as the elves, I think succession disputes would be frightengly important and a major concern.
>>38022249Again, why go straight into the marriage when we can give Mint a shot, and we step in when he falls short?
>>38022235This works well he could be the silver spoon in mouth noble kid you know the kind bratty stuck up and looks down on every one but to afraid to back up what he says and "his father will hear if this" aduttide
>>38022235Bring him in and see if he fails or suceeds. Could be dice rolls, most impartial, a vote which would depend on his personality being good or not.I say we bribe for peace in the mean time, so that way we can actually get trade there and repatriate the displaced, now slave elves.As long as any romance does not feel forced and they both acknowledge Lyann as primary wife and Mako as number 2.
>>38022307I see it like this, but this is just an example1- Eldric consumates with Lyann2- Eldric marries with Aritsu3- Eldric marries and consumates with Mako4-Eldric marries Lyann5- Aritsu finally managing to overcome her natural impulses for the one time in her life to force herself to tell him about her feels.6- Aritsu and Eldric consumate??- No idea on Sinoe, depends on if he's marrying just one or both, I guess>>38022422will have to waste a lot of camera time on someone we arent going to use afterward, tho, you guys sure?
>>38022501a few lines here and there with most of the time talking between our group about their opinion of him
>>38022501You know what I just thought about? what if Ren, considering that part of her OBLIGATIONS is to have a reverse harem and/or continue the line of empresses, just uses her authority to ORDER Eldric into her bed the one time? just a random thoughtTho I'll have to worry about being called a female supremacist again
>>38022577what? can you elaborate please?
>>38022586And then Eldric just flatly says "No" and treestrides away? I agree this is a hilarious idea!
>>38022586>You know what I just thought about? what if Ren, considering that part of her OBLIGATIONS is to have a reverse harem and/or continue the line of empresses, just uses her authority to ORDER Eldric into her bed the one time? just a random thoughtThat would be funny. Insert Mako shenanigans too foe more laughs.She might just decide that at the Lightbringer line is the best line for the next gen to have.
>>38022617we talk to him for a few minutes and while he is training or trying to and failing Eldric and everyone talks amongst them self about him and his personality.
>>38022501>someone we arent going to use afterwardHe might still be useful, more as a elf army captain or some other commissioned position his family bought him, but with just enough levels and spine from our training that he's not a total Rupert and is actually useful in the UN Peacekeeper Command.>>38022586It does sound like a funny idea.Especially if he tries to run, and the Shadows (who learned proper leveling from Mai and Ami) try to hold him down.
>>38022501>will have to waste a lot of camera time on someone we arent going to use afterward, tho, you guys sure?We should waste some time on him. Of coarse it would also be character time other people have. I still want to see if he could be made quality enough for Sinoe eventually. That is what I hope however.
>>38022634She'll probably go, "come hither or I'll take your title away."
>>38022777And Eldric cared about titles when? Exactly,Never
>>38022586she says this will every one is having dinner together.
>>38022855I don't think we want her to be murdered anon.......And actually now that i think about it she probably wouldn't do this at all because she loves Mako to much to try and steal eldric away from her
>>38022885true but getting everyone's reaction would be funny.
>>38022727>actually useful in the UN Peacekeeper Command.you know i actually like this idea>>38022727>hold him down.you mean join in, right?Alright, so Eldric marries Aritsu after Mint fails, but we keep him around because while hes not king material, he's still good officer material. It would be fun if he eventually DID grew up and win Sinoe over, tho, but that depends.Eldric is marrying just Aritsu, right? or do you want to go with both elf girls?Also, a friend pointed out the other day that monogamy is actually LESS common than polygamy, religion-wise, but since christianity and western values are so predominant in, well, the west, that's what has become the norm for us. The idea of polygamy in this world may not even be frowned upon as long as you can actually provide for all your partners.
>>38022885>steal eldric away from her"Its just thos one time. I got a lot of fertility charms, and I'll even wash him before I return him!"Says Ren while Mako is going "no!" and hugging Eldric with a teary face....she may just say it just to tease her.Alright, so let's see... just Aritsu, or Sinoe too?
>>38022935>>38023018>or do you want to go with both elf girls?leave it open if people want both then work for it.
>>38023018I'll vote for both, and makes it easier for succession for the throne.
>>38023018>AritsuAfter we marry Lyann. She now geta a little impatient and works with both moms to push up the wedding. I say after this marriage talk Eldric gets an epiphany and proposed to Lyann.
>>38023018There is a fine line between teasing and just plain being mean.That is indeed crossing the line
>>38023018Just Aritsu, we may be able to work Sinoe in too, but that would come much later after we were sure we'd have enough time to make her happy. But for now we should just focus on Aritsu.
>>38023199"But he's such a FIRM and UP STANDING young man! Surely he will RISE to the occasion without fail!""No!" -about to cry"I even got a bottle of your perfume, and it would be alright if he tried to get rid of his lust on me. I would let him do things he would not feel comfortable doing with you. That way, you will get him back calmer and happier""Nooo!""I'll even wash him before giving him back" -smile"Nooooooo!"Anyway, just Aritsu, right? but we are still inviting Mint and all that? typing
>>38023182Why not just have a giant ass wedding, marry everyone at once, maybe jokingly ask Okaba to be our husband so we get control of his continent too.
>>38023364>Why not just have a giant ass wedding, marry everyone at onceEach of the girls deserves their own day to be 100% special and their's only.
>>38023018Aritsu and Sinoe
>>38023361I'm voting for both sisters, and bringing in Mint to see if he measures up.
>>38023361>Anyway, just Aritsu, right? No, that's not right.
>>38023361It is after lunch, inside one of the keep's dining halls, with Mako, Ren, Lyann, Okaba, Asmund, Alard, Aritsu and Sinoe sitting around the long table. There are plenty of empty seats.The room is quite sober, with polished, mirror-like floors and solid, high class furniture (it's mahogany!). The keep maids have just rolling out the tea cart after refilling everyone's cup, leaving them alone to keep talking."Alright, lets summarize" -says Okaba- "The princesses will invite sir Mint, to stay in Albion as an extended marriage interview."Okaba makes a brief pause to sip some tea, and continues."This is so that we, as representatives and leaders of our united nations, as well as princess Sinoe, of course, can judge his character before progressing with marriage plans""Seems fine" -says Ren"As long as the princess agrees" -says Asmund"Indeed" -adds Eldric"It is agreed, then" -says Sinoe"With that, are we done here? I was meant to cut the ribbon at the opening of a new healing potion dispenser plaza back at home" -says Asmund"I believe that will be all indeed" -says Okaba- "Oh, just the one thing. I will return home in two months, would it be possible to designate someone to keep track of documents and decisions in my absence, then write them down on a linked journal so I can see them?""I could..." -says Aritsu"There's no need. I can always treestride you back and forth if needed" -says Eldric"Ah, it feels as if we are abusing you""It is quite alright"The meeting is finally over, and Eldric begins taking everyone home by treestride.Once it is time to go back to Albion, we shake hands with our cousin, and ask him if his Goliath friend has found anything new about grphology."It is still too soon" "I see. Well, keep in touch with the journals""Of course"Alard kisses the hand of Lyann, Aritsu and Sinoe, and we go back to Albion together."Thank you for letting us know about this danger" -says Aritsu"You had to know" -says Eldric1/?
btw, how's the RE: Monster quest going? wasnt someone here running it and playing here at the same time? and what has happened to the translation of the LN? since it hadn't updated for a while, I stopped checking and forgot the address.>>38023919With this matter behind us for now, we finally go home, and begin training a small group of Honey Faeries as druids.The diminutive faeries look rather cute in their green fluffy coats. Well, we can easily gring dungeons for them.>Take them with us>Just let them soak up exp while we run up and down some dungeons
>>38024010>>Take them with usTeaching them how to do it themselves, even if we just being 4 will help this and future hives.Especially with getting rare raw mats.
>>38024010>>Take them with us
>>38024010>Take them with us
>>38024067I thought it was you who was running the re:monster quest>>38024067>>38024088>>38024108>Take them with us***With the delicate faeries in the party, we need to go slower than usual so they don't get killed.Well, with Lyann to back us up, that is still quite fast indeed. Rising their t1 levels is quite fast, and soon they are more than tough enough to help actively and even walk all over the dungeon monsters.It is somewhat funny to see the tiny faeries literally bitchslapping demons and horrors as if they were toys.Well, the day sure felt long, both with the meeting in Eopolis, and the dungeon crawl afterwards.Lyann smiles as she takes Eldric's hand on the way back home, both of them with a faery on each shoulder.We could have continued if leveling up replenished the faeries mana, but they are now completely empty and will need a few days to refill.As we arrive home, Zoe welcomes us at the door, and we go in to enjoy a warm nice dinner with everyone.It really was a busy day, so Eldric stepping into the bath is at risk of falling asleep.We are still growing, too. Sometimes it feels as if we grew taller every day, so our body is usually sleepy.**You guys want some cute, or some lewd, or just move on to more plot?
>>38024371>I thought it was you who was running the re:monster questNot me, not running anything, and i prefer my stuff more crunchy.I follow it though.
>>38024371What about the ball that Song was preparing for us at our Imperial manor?Buy that island in the Southern Isles and have a resort manor constructed.More things to do before we move to the next plot point.
>>38024371some lewd would be good we had alot of cute in the previous threads
>>38024371>You guys want some cute, or some lewd, or just move on to more plot?I think Eldric should juat propose to Lyann. Make it official in the family. No doubt Lyann would then vote for cute going into lewd later.Then plot.
>>38024371It feels like lewd has been teased for awhile bit not delivered (which is ironically lewd in and of itself)
>>38024566soo lewdception then
>>38024371Haven't had lewd in awhile, so lets have lewd. Possibly cute lewd if you can swing it.
>>38024432>I follow it thoughI don't, I only know the LN seems like it could be so awesome yet it falls short and I keep hoping it gets better laterAlright, some cutesy lewd and then moving on to the ball? also brb
>>38024783oh, want to have some Mako or Lyann time? or do should we actually start racking Aritsu points?
>>38025005lets do aritsu
>>38025088>Aritsu>>38025173>MakoWaiting for tie breaker. Please dont say Lyann, just because i hate it when theres a vote for every option
>>38025005To answer your multiple option question... Yes.
>>38025193>>38025209Oh and Mako, if I have to choose.
>>38025005 Aritsu points!
>>38025404 >>38025227 >>38025222 >>38025173>Mako.>>38025337 >>38025256 >>38025088>Aritsu!I would suspect double voting but we suddenly got 4 more people. I guess someone just got home from work?***The next morning, Eldric picks up Mako and Ren, as usual. Classes go quite well, and Aritsu gives us her and her sister's letters for marquis Mint.As we are looking around the club, we see Lyann is playing a match with Mako. As we approach, Mako manages to beat Lyann.Her celebration dance is something along the lines of rising her small hands to her shoulders and softly saying "yay!" with a smile, then helping to store the pieces away."Oh, hi Eldric" -Lyann smiles as she notices us behind Mako"If you wanted to use that trick, you should have done so while we were playing" -says Mako, leaning her head to the left, a little bit"Hello" -says Eldric, causing Mako to go "eep!" and drop the piece she was holding."e-Eldric!" -she cries out softly as she lifts her head towards him"Yes""I won!""Yes. Good job""That means we can go eat potatoes!" -she announces with a big smile"Uhm? what?"Lyann sighs"She said she liked it when you bought her those long fried potatoes during your date in the Jade islands, so I said she should ask you to take her again. She said she couldn't, so I said she should, and this went on for a while. At some point I tricked her so she would ASK you to take her if she WON against me, and I would tell you to take her if she LOST against me""Whut?""I won!" -the princess says, her eyes sparklingThe shadows look worried and are ready to point out her mistake, but Ren stops them with a gesture while looking at the conversation with a smile."Ah... alright""So, I can ask you to take me on a... wait..." -it dawns on her, and she starts blushing while keeping her hands before her shoulders and shaking them gently1/?
>>38025782damn that was cute.
>>38025782"So, princess, you want to visit the islands again?""Ah,, I,,, " -she answers softly while going red- "just... potatoes... they're tasty""Yes, I guess? do you want to go to the islands again?""p-Potatoes..." -she says softly"Oh Eldric, just take her already?" -sighs Lyann"Alright, alright. She's just cute when she's like this!"Eldric offers to hold Mako's hand, and excuses himself."We will be back by sunset""Alright" -says RenLyann nodsEldric takes Mako to the garden, and through the large oak in the university's garden, to the Jade Islands once more.The sun is strong (so fire attacks are strong and water is weak) as you appear next to one of the palm trees along the beach avenue.Of course, with both of you wearing your uniform, you stand quite a bit among the locals. Plus, Mako's deep rick black hair floats like a banner in the sea breeze."A-aaaiii!" -she cries a little when said sea breeze decides to play with her skirt's edge"Ah, well, we should get some clothes before we are cooked in our winter uniforms" -says Eldric as he goes towards a clothing store.>Cutesy swimsuit>More adult swimsuit, notice how nicely she's growing>Local fashion, a sarong, wide straw hat, the whole tourist thing.>Other
>>38026323>>Local fashion, a sarong, wide straw hat, the whole tourist thing.sarong's to me are both sexy and chaste.
>>38026323>Local fashion, a sarong, wide straw hat, the whole tourist thing.Given that most travel is ostensibly done for trade in a non mechanized/modern world would tourists be a thing outside of important cities and or religious sites? Like a pilgrim or merchant may travel long to reach a destination, but would a villager? Etc.
>>38026323>Local fashion, a sarong, wide straw hat, the whole tourist thing.We tourists, so enjoy it.
>>38026534probably not, but most of the time I write from Eldric's POV and he certainly has the concept of tourist in mind at times like these.>>38026389its also my password in RFOnline. Tho I havent played that in YEARSAnd I just remembered a elf student called Lazard had a puppy love/admiration for the twin princesses.Guess I will have him pop up tomorrow***A few minutes later, Eldric walks out of the store wearing short trunks, a colorful floral shirt, rope sandals, shades, and a wide straw hat.Mako is wearing a long sarong with her geta sandals, a wide wing straw hat keeping the sun off her milky skin.That's right, she's just a year younger, right? I guess looking at her every day in the same clothes somehow threw a veil over our eyes. She's really growing... she's blooming from a very cute child into a head turner, attractive young lady. She will be a sensual, nubile maiden in no time, at this rate.Not that there's anything wrong with that,"Eldric, why is people looking at us?""It's because they hadn't seen such a cute princess before. Can't blame them""Eeeeep!" -she says, blushing brightlyEldric gently holds her hand, and gives her a gentle pull."Let's go have those potatoes?""a-Alright!" -she nods with a little smile***Guys I need to stop here for tonight. my eyes are starting to hurt. Will come back in a while after getting eyedrops and resting for a bit, in case you have any questions or comments
>>38026701Thanks for running
>>38026701So King, what other LN/WV have you read recently?I know you read Re:Monster, but from spoilers and what has been translated it always seemed like better idea then execution.
