It doesn't take long for you to get yourself back into regular clothes. Ones without frills or lace or less cloth than the average napkin. An overall improvement.Elle, apparently satisfied with your embarrassment, has moved on to making actual clothes, rapidly burying Lann beneath a pile of excellently tailored sets of clothes. And also a gorgeous cloak, which the half-elf has already swapped into."I though you would wait till it was dyed, yes?""My cloak was nearly a decade old. Do you know what that smells like?""Dirty elf?""Yeah, it's- No, not like dirty elf. Like ten years of sweat and dirt and blood and everything else it's been dragged through.""That's what I said.""Hilarious."You shrug, smiling."Would it have been easier to dye the cloth beforehand, though? I am thinking the folds and the hood will change it now, yes."Elle interrupts, speaking around a needle held neatly in her lips."She wants brown and green and grey, yes. Ugly, ugly things. I am not interested in making clothes like that."Lann gestures to your sister with a lazy hand."She said it. I'll dye them later- Anyway, uneven dyes make for better camouflage. Better ugly than dead, right?"The weaver snorts."Get stronger, then.""I'm half-elf not half-spider.">That's your cue! Do some training. Maybe speed. Or midair web dodging. >Help Elle, chat a bit. You can make silk, if nothing else.>Maybe take your mind off of things with a hunt?>Other (?)

>>38019706nah it's just training
Waitaminute.Is elle saying we're not strong enough because we keep wearing frumpy tunics into battle?
>>38020333no she's talking to the half-elf.
>>38019341>"I'm half-elf not half-spider."We're half elf too. Your half human side better git gud, Lann.
>>38020378Yeah, but we aren't exactly fighting in a ballroom gown either, are we?
>>38020401We'd be too embarrassed to fight in a ballroom gown, especially with Nin drooling at the sight.
>>38020401well i think her displeasure is more at the colour pallet lann chose instead of the designe
>>38020451Also true!>>38020462hm. What color are we using? Just white for everything?
>>38019341>"I'm half-elf not half-spider."should we explain to her that most spiders are not as insane as our family?
>>38020333Elle isn't that dumb, Lyra would "train" her for even thinking such a thing.
>>38020476yeah i think it's never realy been brought up what the color of our clothes is.
>>38020401Elle probably wouldn't even want us to fight in a ballroom gown. It'd get all frayed and tattered, and you know how she is about her silk.
>>38020502So next time she gets uppity, we need to start fraying bits of nicely woven silk?Perhaps some nice heat deformation?
>>38020502well, it WOULD give her an excuse to make more gowns.
You need- in order, no less- Exercise, distraction and training. Getting caught by Elle and Nin, even with their cheating... it's a little embarrassing.So you'll combine them all! Exercise and training for you, and the distraction of giving lessons to the resident moth and snake.Jin needs a bit more room to train, and Sheszka is finally starting to wake up, at least. You voice your opinions to Nin, who hurries off to grab her training gear- returning with a light wooden rapier and a spark in her eye. You set her up to run through forms. She's been training with your Mom on and off, hasn't she? It'd be best to check where she is now.And as for Ezzy- You unwind the snake from your neck dropping her down to the arena floor, where she immediately spools back into her coils. You snag one of her 'weights', a simple stone, from a pile of similar pieces. And then you drop it on top of her.It's smaller than she can lift. Warm up is important. You don't want people hurt. "Lyyyyyraaaaa.""Yes?""The ssstone isss too cooooold."You sigh, planting a finger against the center of the rock, veins glowing in your hands already.It only takes a few moments before the lamia is making satisfied noises, and move back into your own work, running forms and shadow fighting.Ugh.Barely ten minutes in, and already...You're kind of rusty, at least in regards to the disciplined workouts your mother would inflict. You shake yourself off, just a little, and push back hard. Training doesn't beat you. Nothing beats you.You give little hisses as you push yourself, spear swinging and sweat stinging your eyes. Half pressure release, half spider-growling. You move through the patterns you've been taught, been drilled with, speeding up, slowing down, over and over.
>>38020606Nin is right beside you throughout- not at your speeds, and not your patterns- but she gives her all just the same, lunging, dancing away from imagined attacks, parries and ripostes.Not bad at all. _________________________________________________________You cool off easily enough. Your shield fills with water, which you then dump over your head, washing away sweat and plastering your face with your own hair. Jin gets a laugh from it. Nin refuses the impromptu shower, but steals the buckler to have a drink.And Esmerelda-Ezzy apparently found the rock to be the perfect temperature, and coiled around it for a nap.You prod the snake."Nnnnssss-""Lazy snake.""Lamia.""Lazy lamia, then, yes.""Not lazy.""Workout involve work, yes. Not sleep.""What?"She half uncoils, pushing away from the stone and looking down, wiping at her eyes."Oh.""Oh?""I was tired."You smirk, offering a hand. She yawns behind her fingers as she twist up your chitin, perching on your shoulder and stretching. >If you are awake now, maybe you should hunt your own dinner, yes?>You will be lifting stones before you get any food tonight.>Lazy snakes.>Other (?)
>>38020621>If you are awake now, maybe you should hunt your own dinner, yes?
>>38020621>If you are awake now, maybe you should hunt your own dinner, yes?let's see how the snake hunts.
>>38020621>>Lazy snakes.I wouldn't make her train without food, or get her own food. She doesn't know the forest in this area.
>>38020621>>If you are awake now, maybe you should hunt your own dinner, yes?>>38020654That's why we make a maze for her and plop a gnome or a brownie in it or something.
>>38020621>Lazy snakes.Ezzy is our travel-size rogue. She doesn't need to be buff.
>>38020715or prehaps one of those horned rabbits gnome might be a bit to much for her
>>38020621>Lazy snakes.>If you are awake now, maybe you should hunt your own dinner, yes?
I worry about making ezzy fight anything.I mean, even the gnomes are like, her size. Wheras they were tiny for us.
Hunting on your own? Of course!Esmerelda is an adult!>>38020715Do people want to stick her in a maze, or head out somewhere to hunt?
>>38020857let's just track down something good for her to hunt nothing fancy.
>>38020857Head out with her
>>38020857Whatever allows us to intervene the second she starts losing.
>>38020857Stick her in a maze.
>>38020857Go out to hunt, she is perfectly capable of handling something small, and we are there anyway.She won't learn to fight properly by never doing it.
Outside! Snake in the wilds!Alright, writing!I'll take 1d100, though.

>>38021068Hey.Have we had a chance to have bacon yet?Was it included that time we ordered a whole pig?We need a regular source of bacon.
>>38021217>why>why do you need bacon on the regularIt would improve all of our lives.That, and having a good frying pan.
>>38021256I will never understand this obsession people have with bacon, sure it's nice, but there are better things out there.
>>38021318I gotta say, it's in the top 3 of all meats.
>>38021332>Venison>Veal>DuckNo, no it really isn't
>>38021369I rate it higher than venison at least.And veal is all gross.I haven't had duck, but I hear it's very gamey.
>>38021318HERESY *BLAM*Oh wrong Universe sry 'bout that
>>38021369>Liking vealWhat the fuck is wrong with you?
>>38021393If this is about ethics, rose veal is a thing....
>>38021393well, he could be rich.Rich people eat all sorts of disgusting-but-expensive food.
>>38021411It's physically gross.I need a tougher, leaner meat.Which is almost the opposite of bacon, but I also want bacon. It's like fuckin' candy.
>>38021428You have clearly never had a good veal schnitzel then.
>>38021411I don't give a fuck about ethics, animals are food unless they are pets.Veal just tastes fucking awful, I've eaten Veal in London, England, Quebec in Canada, and 7 different states in AMERICA.It tastes fucking awful regardless of where it was raised or who prepared it.
>>38021440>but it's good if it's tenderized and batter fried!Anon, I could make rotten eggs and grasshopper patties taste good if they were batter fried.
>>38021169Only bacon from a megaboar would do though.
>>38021453At least you tried...Also it is a matter of personal taste and as such very subjective in nature.
>>38021469I dunno, we don't NEED to be eating giant monsters.It's not like we're getting food XP.
>>38021481Nah, I'm certain that Veal is one of those things you pretend to like and whenever it comes time to eat it you just batter-fry the fucking thing.Slathering literally ANYTHING in batter and frying it makes it taste amazing, I know, I've tried, my current most awful thing that turned out okay is an Everything burrito with some chocolate spiders pushed into it.
>>38021481Indeed. Each to their own.I am not saying that a good steak is not heavenly, I am merely saying that I am quite fond of veal.
>>38021525>Eating spidersH-how could you!
>>38021525>some chocolate spiders pushed into it.You...you eat spiders?I think you're in the wrong thread, anon.
>>38021504Maybe we need a cooking stat at some point?We've been doing some, and we're pretty good at barbecues.
>>38021608>>38021583Lyra should make chocolate spiders if she ever gets guests.
>>38021637aaand now I'm imagining old-lyra living in her spider cottage somewhere making sweeties for the village kids.Who may or may not be terrified of her as per spooky-old-lady rules.
>>38021583>>38021608These kind you ninnies.The reason they were "awful" is because the person making them fucked up with the powder and it was basically biting into coarse dirt.
>>38021707>>38021708>old lady lyra dealing with trick or treatersthese are good thoughts.
>>38021469What is this? A boar for lamias?
>>38021835For some reason I can't imagine Old Lady Lyra doing these kinds of things without a "But on the horizon..an enemy crests" and Lyra despite being positively ancient and tired heads back into her nest and straps her armor on.It makes me sad.
>>38021895All we need to do is have a good batch of kids, then we never have to worry about it again.
>>38021854A boar. An example/reference for a monster boar. This one's from RWBY, but I can search for other boars.
>>38021917>want Lyra/Nin as OTP>also want Lyra to have kids way down the lineWHY MUST YOU TOY WITH MY EMOTIONS.
>>38021946Its a high-magic setting.I'm not concerned about that.Just needs some upgrades to the lewd powder[/spioler]
>>38021983>>38021989I'm going to choose to believe there is no such magic.
>>38021946>Thinking these are mutually exclusive.There's nothing Lyra can't do eventually. Nothing.Reality and logic are intimidated by giant spiders, after all.
>>38021946Nin has an even greater need for moth babies.
>>38022017Then we simply have to evolve parthenogenesis.Besides, the only reason to have sexual reproduction is to make the Offspring more awesome, and the only people Lyra can breed with to make her children ever MORE awesome would be her sisters so it's completely unnecessary.
>>38021946Fluffy Spider Babies
>>38022017Then let's copy the fucking Asari and have ULTRA FLUFFY SPIDERLINGS!YEAH!
>>38022057from as far as i get how awesome monster babies are is not based on genetics but rather on how they are raised.
>>38022057I'm also relatively certain we're not angling for any kind of parthenogenesis evolution.I mean, we've not been training reproduction via budding or anything, so it's extremely unlikely.>>38022075Nah, not into it.And we -already- have fluffy spider baby stories, so getting more would be pointless.
>>38022057But we're awesome partly because we're a spider/elf mix breed. Seems genetic diversity is the key, not inbreeding.
>>38022082That isn't defeating nor supporting his argument.
>>38022017Thats no problem.We just pitch it to Sara as magic research idea.Then there will be such magic.
>>38021943He's talking about how small the image is. It's practically a thumbnail.
>>38022104But by that time nin will have gotten over her phase.
>>38022096>I'm also relatively certain we're not angling for any kind of parthenogenesis evolution.>I mean, we've not been training reproduction via budding or anything, so it's extremely unlikely.What do you think the headpatting is, anon?
Later, it turns out nin was being entirely platonic. Like one bro complimenting the other on his sterling pecs and giving them brograbs.
Speaking of Monster Babies. Nye has retired from adventuring after a they took down the Viking Vengence God, a exceptionall fluffy spider has now joined the Mothia in his place, also The Mothia has had their first PC death, I'm on my phone so I'll let you guess who died until I get to a computer
>>38022119>phaseTrue love has no time limit.
>>38022119>implying it's not just Phase 1 of her plan to rule the continent as her chosen puppet ruler's consort
>>38022150You're just going through a phase, sweetie.>>38022148so that plan to re-seduce death failed, eh?
>>38022144Don't you mean brojobs?>>38021946>Implying a queen can't have multiple consorts.
>>38022107Oops. Sorry.>>38022096Well if none of our pitched ideas work, plan B (or is it E?): "Which of you Moths and Spiders is a worthy donor for the Queen and her bride?"I'm sure Sara will succeed though.>>38022119Why do you hate love, anon? Were you jilted by a Butterfly?
>>38022204Obviously she can.Nin, Jin, Lann, Sara
>>38022229Becausenin is worst girl
>>38022229Honestly all the pitched ideas to have kids with our party member are kind of creepy and make me frustrated.Inter-party relationships are my absolute least favorite.
I'm of the opinion that waifus kill quests and we're using up valuable thread space with this garbage.That said, Sheszka best girl.
>>38022266You want Jin's headfeathers, don't you Anon?Or are Wolf girl face lickings more your style?
>all these childhood friend endsCome on guys, you know those never work out.Seranthis route is true route.
>>38022300I'm sorry I brought it up. I just wanted us to have kids in future-lyra scenario so we are free to make sweeties.>>38022321I agree 100%. Fuck childhood friend romances.
>>38022321Only Jin is our childhood friend.The others are more, teenager friends.
>>38022320None of the above
>>38022340You haven't seen the last of me. I'll be baaaaaaaaaaaack
>>38022374My gentleman spider of African decent.
>>38022340>I just wanted us to have kids in future-lyra scenarioApparently so do most.We just haven't decided if its going to be magic ort parthogenesis.Which admittely would also be magic, but then we are a giant spider, its pretty much always going to boil down to magic.>>38022374I'm with you anon, Lann is best girl. Lyra needs someone her own maturity.
>>38022407>completely ignoring the option of a male romanceFuck off with that.
>>38022374Lann route confirmed.
"Well, then."The tiny lamia cocks her head at you- not so much in confusion as it is an attempt to lean around your face and look you in the eye.Which is hilarious and adorable all the same."If the lazy snake is awake-""Lamia.""Then she can hunt her own dinner, can't she?""What?"You grab her again, raising her high above you as you clamber off the side of the arena."Onwards, yes. To food!"Jin manages to hop behind you as you go- when she's conscious, it seems her grip is strong enough to keep her anchored now. Of course, it is dependant on the laziest harpy of all being conscious. And it is probably a very good thing that your skull is basically indestructible.Jin has some serious talons.Ezzy on the other hand, squeezes her eyes shut and clings to your fingers all the way down.Dad shoots you a strange look as you pass him by out of the nest.Not enough to say anything, but enough to look up. Maybe that's lucky?You reach the forest floor in no time at all, at which point you have to wait for the two girls clambering down the ladders to join you.You left Lann behind, but she's on vacation.Standing idly at the foot of your house, being glared at by an angry snake. Lamia. "That was unecessary.""When you grow up, one day you will thank me.""I am an adult.""Yes, yes.""You-""Why do you hiss sometimes?""It is a warning. 'I am about to bite you now go away'.""What? No. I mean when you talk, yes? Like, sometimes would be sssometimesss."She reddens under your questions, turning her head so her hair hides her face."It is- It is just a bad habit. It is not anything to worry about!""Oh, I see, yes. A bad habit.""Sssshhhhh!"You giggle a bit, heading out once you're joined by your friends.___________________________________________It isn't the easiest hunt. For starters, the kinds of things you can hunt, and the kinds of things Ezzy can take on-They are several degrees apart. Maybe more.
>>38022421I'm just being realistic here.
>>38022461You are literally using the excuse of "it's fantasy and I don't have to try to be realistic" to explain these things.
>>38022421IT'S TO LATE ANON! THE /U/ BOATS HAVE LAUNCHED! SAVE YOURSELF! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrJAwCBbnuc
>>38022444Definitely more.Not impossible, though. Creeping through the undergrowth- creeping above the undergrowth- you find a small group of horned rabbits. Just rabbits. Not electric rabbits or murder rabbits or devil rabbits or anything else.Rabbits. You unleash the snake.Ezzy tries to shoot you a dignified look as she slithers away, but it's heavily masked by her non-existent stature. Oh well.She creeps up on a smaller rabbit- and strikes.She flashes out of a pile of leaves, snapping herself around the rabbits neck and sinking her fangs in as the rest explode outwards, fleeing with everything they have.Unfortunately, Sheszka is there, with a canines inevitable instinct to chase things. They taste good, at least.Esmerelda's victim twitches a few times, leg kicking weakly as venom and a definitive lack of air take their toll. She uncoils all at once as it stills, raising herself as far as she can, hands on her hips."Sssee! I can hunt for myself!"You applaud, though you can't resist the comment."You are hissing again, yes?"Her hands clap over her mouth a second later._________________________________________________________Dinner is pleasant enough.Ezzy actually seems happy to be eating her own kill. A mark of pride, maybe? Or a bigger thing for a Lamia?No, when mom sent you hunting... She was very proud, too. A monster thing, then.
I'm personally fond of the Esmerelda route.Tiny Snek will eventually become bigger Snek but will always be Tiny Snek and have Tiny Snek vs Giant Spider arguments that lack any sort of venom despite being Snek and Spidah.
>>38022500Has Ezzy not been hunting on her own before?She's already eaten herself fat, her coils lumpy with the amount of meat she consumed, her length half around your neck- and her human body flopped across your shoulder and further."Thank you.""For the hunt?""Yes.""Is it that big of a thing?""For monsters. A part of growing up.""Then you...?""No. I was- I am- Even the hissing. It is something children do. I shouldn't be...""It is fine, yes? Not something to worry about.""I don't know.""Lyra hisses when she gets angry, yes.""Thank you, Jin.""You do?""Spider language is hisses and clicks, yes. So, when I get a little too upset-""You hiss and click.""Yes."The lamia chuckles to herself, coiling tighter, hugging her own length as she leans into you for heat."I will remember that, then.""Mhm.">Start finding a caravan in the morning.

>>38022526>Check your siblings. Make sure everyone is ready and set up for what they want to do.Last chance to convince Sara of all the sights she can see with us, all the libraries of dead wizards to plunder.

>>38022526>Bug Mom. Get together a set of gear for when you go. One last training session, maybe?
>>38022680Yeah. hence why saying "oh but it's so realistic!" is the dumbest thing possible.>>38022686>immediately assuming only one person dislikes the shit you constantly pullIf you keep doing that, then I'm going to make the same counterassumption and say you're samefagging.
>>38022626Why isn't it a realistic thing for spiders?Fucking sharks do it all the time, hell, Hammerhead sharks do it.So do crayfish and various other crustaceans, it's common among insects.
>>38022715>Yeah. hence why saying "oh but it's so realistic!" is the dumbest thing possible.Are you really dumb or are you just pretending?That is obviously not what he meant with "I'm being realistic".
>>38022726Because spiders don't do it, anon.Your fault for bringing up realism on something that isn't actually realistic.
>>38022680I really don't see the point in choosing anyone, or a sexual orientation yet, we still have people to meet, and Lyra is still very young.
>>38022526>Check your siblings. Make sure everyone is ready and set up for what they want to do.Then we can bug mom for any last minute things our siblings want.
>>38022740If he was being realistic in that sense, he would have acknowledged we're never having kids and the quest will end long before that ever becomes a consideration.
>>38022715I was pretty clearly referring to your comment of me ignoring the possibility of a male romance.I have no idea how you could possibly understand from that calling the magic thing being realistic.
>>38022781Realistically, we're not going to have any romance, with how things are going.
>>38022726It is kind of a shitty contrivance just for the sake of lewdCan we have female friends that a close, but don't want to fuck for once?
Awyiss, spiderquest.Does Elle have experience making extra warm clothes rather than thin lacy stuff?
>>38022766We aren't choosing anyone...I think you hetfags take this sort of banter waayyy too serious for your own good.It doesn't actually impact the quest in any fashion.
>>38022805This.It's a real shitty contrivance, and I really hate interparty relationships like this.>>38022818Of course not, fancy clothes 100%
>>38022779It was pretty obviously not meant serious.You are just absurdly overreacting to it.
We should waifu adventure, like mom.Get our spiderbutt in gear and go see new things and places. Meet new people, find giant monsters and eat them. Leave romance for a few years down the road, we're two months old.
>>38022819I dunno, the /u/s seem to be pretty serious about this shit.They get all outraged when you assert that some people might not like the thing they like.
>>38022757I didn't bring it up fucker, and you have no proof that Spiders DON'T do it; the only time it doesn't show up as a viable method is in mammals, but some mammals can reproduce through gynogenesis.
>>38022526>Bug Mom. Get together a set of gear for when you go.we should probably let her know we are leaving after all. God knows what she would do to Aria if we disappeared without warning.
>>38022841>waifu adventureWe are pretty clearly doing exactly that.
>>38022805I'm not even arguing for Friendmance or Lewd in any form, I'm just pointing out that parthenogenesis is a thing that isn't unrealistic for giant spider monsters.
>>38022847Of course you brought it up, as there's only one of you.And we have no actual instances of spider parthenogenesis anywhere, says google.
>>38022803We're not even done with puberty yet Anon...>>38022805I wish we could Anon.
>>38022878By our current system? It's unrealistic as fuck.You can't train parthenogenesis.
>>38022844Even if someone were in theory, serious about this.It doesn't matter, because its not something we have a say in, until REQM gives us one.Then you can complainwhen it could possibly ever have any sort of influence on the quest.But currently it can't.
>>38022844Feels like it's the hetfags more though. Partially because they keep trying to shoot down every idea while putting forth none of their own. It ends up feeling like they're trying to kill other people's good time as a result.
>>38022908Yeah, for real.Let's just be a young girl who's maximum level of romance is "puppydog crush that will last like a couple months', like all young girls are.
Alright, we'll bug mom and then your siblings!Writing!
>>38022911You can't train having a giant unremovable skull of some animal that may or may not actually exist on your butt either
Maybe adoption is the answer
>>38022916They just like crying about it every chance they get. It's distressingly common, and increasingly boring each time.
>>38022883No, actually the one who "brought it up", was me.Although I have still a hard time grasping how you could possibly read that as referring to the methods of reproduction, instead of the joking jab at the "possibility of male romance" that it actually was.Not sure why you are so intensly butthurt about this.
>>38022924Every time a hetfag brings this shit up, you guys immediately shoot it down just as harshly. And then you go on to claim it's always the hetfags bringing it up.Meanwhile, I try to have good times with old lady lyra and the /u/fags shoot it down with their talk about how much they want to fuck moths
>>38022844Could be worse, they could actually be from /u/. Though when they came over to, and shortly left in disgust from, Strike Witches Quest, it was hilarious
>>38022956Why are you so angry about this that you bring /v/ terms into it?Why can you not accept someone liking thing you don't like, to the point where you need to go on rants at people who even suggest it is a possibility?
>>38022805Well said anon, well said.
>>38022995Are you mislinking?Because I don't know how your post relates to mine at all, given that I didn't express the slightest hint of anger, and not ever having visited /v/ I havge no idea what in my post could be a /v/ term.
>>38022968God fucking damn it, anon.Stop this shit. It escalated enough.We just need people to change subject and cool the fuck down. Can you help with that?
god this whole debate is nothing more then a shit flinging fight about something that will have no meaning on the quest in a very long time, why can't we just bury the hatchet until the time actualy comes for this to be relevant.
>>38022805Gotta play devil's advocate here too, can we have male friends and not want to fuck them as well?
>>38023036Butthurt, going on about how it's impossible for anything but what you like to happen, etcetera.It seems like you are extremely personally invested in people who don't like what you like.
>>38023042Because I like my hatchet clean and well-taken care of up until the point I bury it into someone.
>>38023046Yes and no.Yes, obviously.But also no, because shipping.
>>38022924What about that one guard in the village>>38023046Sure.
>>38023046does the blacksmith count?
>>38023056I, what?I think I lost you. Where did I express any opinion on other peoples likes?And "butthurt", predates /v/ as term by years.
>>38023046>male friendsHard to do that when we can't have male friends in the first place.
>>38023105Fairly certain someone made a joke about that a thread or two ago.So no, he doesn't.
>>38023114Around the time you were claiming that only your tastes were realistic, and insisting anyone who disagreed was "butthurt".
>>38022673>Scorp quest is dedAnd we all know why: Husbandos a shit
>>38023136>Around the time you were claiming that only your tastes were realisticLiterally no one in this entire thread did this.So you can't even misread the chain of comments or anything.So I'm seriously left to wonder.What the fuck anon?
>>38023215Actually it was because the author sort of painted himself into a corner with extremely dire problems and no real way of solving them. That and normal quest curses interrupting schedules.Good attempt to re-start the waifu fires, though.
>>38023215>implying it isn't the QMs fault
>>38023240There was that guy ranting on about how only lesbian end is realistic, and you just insisted everyone arguing against you was butthurt a few posts ago.Stop being so angry about people disliking what you like.
>>38023240Not him, but >>38022461 was stating that they considered only a /u/boat to be realistic.
>>38023215Pretty sure there are running husbando having quests.I don't read any, but I have been told they exist.
>>38023284i know of one ace combat quest and that is i think the only one.
>>38023277>There was that guy ranting on about how only lesbian end is realisticThere was no one ranting about this.A single line, is not a rant, anon.And >>38022461Was making a jest in referenc eto the eternal complaint that FemMCs allegedly always end up /u/.Nothing more. And yes, the disproportional reaction to that single line and absurd misreading of it, were definitly more than it warranted by far.
I'm disappointed in you, anon.Yes, you specifically.There was a call to end this madness, but you fanned the flames instead.Why didn't you stop?
>>38023325Well, the single line, and like a dozen responses after that getting angry at anyone who told him it wasn't realistic at all.Can't deal with someone telling him it's not realistic, after all. Oh lord no.
>>38023338Hetfaggotry and /u/boating are serious mental conditions. They literally can not stop. Send help.
>>38023338Some anons just want to watch the thread burn.
I will remember this next time I wish to talk about that cute scared guardsman and it gets shot down.
>>38023403Huh, we should really talk to him sometime.Not to romance him necessarily, but I liked him.
>>38023403Talking's fine.It's loud shipping arguments that blow.
>>38022818>ElleShe will never, ever make anything but fancyclothes.>>38023447>>38023448I want to spend more time spooking him.But more importantly-WE SHOULD USE OUR FINGERLESS GLOVES, A BANDANA, AND A CONVENIENT ROCK TO ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO TALK TO THAT SCAREDY CENTAUR.I refuse to have never had talked to him.
>>38023403>>38023447Maybe we could say hi to him before we leave.
>>38023403 Pretty sure he gets often everytime we visit or plan to visit the village and someone tries to bring him up on some contrivance.Don't remember any shooting down of it though.Just lack of reaction. Because, well, he doesn't really have a character beyond, "he is easily scared".
>>38023338This is my first post actually.On the other hand, I was saying REQM should nip this shit in the bud like 5 months ago, so I'm placing all blame there anyway.
>>38023474Last time I brought it up I got a half dozen replies about how we never talk to him and how it's so far fetched for us to every be friends with him and how it's impossible impossible impossible!So, you know, there's that.
>>38023479He is nipping it in the bud as much as he can, by not giving us any say in it.>>38023485Don't remember that, care to link it?
>>38023468That reminds me, Centaurs are monster folk right?I never saw a description for them in the pastebin.There should probably be one for Lamias now too.
>>38023485Well to be fair, it is pretty far fetched, considering that we are pretty busy doing things in which he would get insta-murdered.
>>38023494nah, as we're at 74 threads and we don't have a consistent name for him.The closest I could come to an accurate heuristic is searching for "hetfag" and filtering through every waifu war we've ever had.And fuck you for saying anyone should do that.
>>38023534He claimed it was a thing that apparently happened and my recollection in that regard was faulty.Otherwise I'm gonna have to assume he was just making shit up, and I didn't want to do that without at least giving a chance of proving his point.
>>38023533It's a real good pairing though. S'cute.And we don't need to take him on the party. Inter-party romances suck.and they always die
>>38023468This is brilliant. We shall stealth fully befriend the arachnophobic centaur without him ever being the wiser.
>>38023569Actually, all you wanted was a way to easily discount anything anyone but you says.I can't recall a single time /u/ has ever NOT shot down hetfags.Please cite instances where they didn't give them shit over it.You know, because asking someone to search all the waifu wars is completely legit.
>>38023533To be fair, Lann is almost as squishy.
>>38023494Yeah, he sure is dealing with it great, as shown by all these arguments (and for that matter, all the waifu-talk even when it doesn't result in arguments).This is not dealing with it, it's putting it off at best.
>>38023595You know, you keep saying inter-party romances suck. Sure turned out terrible for our parents, huh. And I know you're going to say it's a PC specific complaint but seriously, it's a bad argument.
>>38023611I've been pitching this plan for a while.
>>38023325>FemMCs allegedly always end up /u/.allegedly? its a fact
>>38023595>It's a real good pairing though. S'cute.I dunno. I reserve my judgement on how good a pairing is until a I actually , you know, know anything at all about the character.I figure his personality would be sort of relevant to deciding that.Find it rather odd that it isn't to you. But no accounting for taste, I guess.
>>38023647>this sucks>b-but that's not a good argument!Doesn't change that it sucks.Also, lyra is a curse. We've gone over this before.
>in this thread, waifufags won't shut the fuck up and play the damn game
>>38023494Until he says 'you will be able to romance X, you can't romance Y', replacing either of those with dudes, ladies, monstergirls, normal humans, nobody at all, absolutely everything, etc, it's not nipped in the bud at all. Well, it can't get nipped in the bud anyway now since it's no longer bud-time as it were, but you know.Languid nipped things in the bud. REQM certainly didn't.
>>38023623All I asked for him to show the last titme he rbought up the nervous guard boy he got "shot down", when in my memory he gets brought up constantly without much reaction.You made it about romance again.
>>38023670I find it odd that you think we've gotten absolutely none of his personality when we've talked to him a few times and have at least a bit of it down.Almost as if you are arguing for an objective rather than for what would be fun.
>>38023722All I'm asking from you is a single time someone brought up het romance that wasn't shot down instantly.He usually gets several responses when brought up. Usually dedicated to whatever excuse can be used to keep us from talking to him more. Currently, they're on "b-but he has no personaaality!"
>>38023724>when we've talked to him a few timesNo we haven't.We have never talked to him even once.We greeted him once.Please quote such a alleged conversation.
>>38023754we talk to him at the gates constantly.Please cite a time we didn't at least greet him when we saw him.Or, you know, stop trying to blackmail people into reading through 74 threads again in an attempt to claim a victory-by-absence.
>>38023787I... uh. I think you're talking about two different people here. One guy's talking about the centaur, another the human guard.
>>38023803well, we've talked to the guard a few times, and have a pretty good handle on him being one of them "young hero" types.The centaur though, yeah, we need to enact plan arachne-in-disguise if we want to talk to him.Either that or just hang from the roof of his barn until he returns home, which is way more invasive I argue so it's a bad idea.
>>38023743It's true though. He's a non-character. Talking about romancing him is retarded. Comparing romancing him with one of the gang is insulting. This is separate from the het/lesbian thing. If people were arguing to romance Nin's sister or whatever, that would be an actual fair comparison to talking about romancing guard dude.Not that these anons would joyfully romance an actual male character of importance, but come on.
>>38023818Hahaha oh poor fucking Baron
>>38023721Is this your only quest?Do you honestly think REQM explicitly bringing up the topic would be making people obsess LESS over it?No. It'd be just giving people something specific to argue about, it'd be just worse.REQM doesn't want it to be a thing, so he doesn't bring it up. And thats the right way to do it. He doesn't let us decide at all.Because he doesn't want it to be a thing right now.
>>38023818Maybe if Wolfgang had panned out.
>>38023839Aaaand now I have a citation of /u/fags shooting it down literally every time he is brought up."No, we can't ever talk to him more! He's a noncharacter!"
>>38023803That's an excellent topic to change to: centaurs.Discuss evolutions, cultures, relationship with other races, galloping blessings, and more.Please.
>>38023787No, thats a different, older human guard we meet all the time anon. You got the characters confused.
>>38023861Centaur father giving his Human daughter pony rides
>>38023875We meet both constantly, anon.
>>38023887my god now i want that as a picture.
>>38023787>Please cite a time we didn't at least greet him when we saw him.HahahahahHe is literally sucha non-character, you can't even recognize if we talk to a completly different one.The dude we meet at the gate all the time with the "Purpose of visit" is a different guy.
>>38023875The old guard is pretty cool. I'd love to hang out with him more.>>38023860Good job citing out of context.
>>38023861For some reason I really like the idea of centaurs being very British, I mean the empire kind.
>>38023887>>38023861I still am outraged by the lack of surfaces to hang upside down from in town.
>>38023903>>38023920>"Daddy! I want a pony for christmas!He just puts a ribbon on his head
>>38023887Cute.But wouldn't his daughter also be a centaur? That would look awkward.
>>38023889There is more than two guards anon.The adventurer in the guild take shifts, Lann was guard a few times too.We met the young one twice or so.>>38023909>The old guard is pretty coolNo, the old guy is a different one again.There are a lot of guards. Every adventurer is guard from time to time.
>>38023887This question is very, very important.Adopted or Blood?The answer determines whether I am absolutely disgusted or d'aawwwing.
>>38023908And more proof of /u/ shooting anything involving male characters down instantly.No, of course you can't like that scaredy guardsman we've seen a few times. You're confusing him with the old man! what, you're not? Then you're confusing him with this other guy!God forbid anyone actually want to talk to the scaredy guy more.
>>38023920this will be solved when we visit dwarven town plenty of cave ceilings to hang from there
>>38023937>There is more than two guards anon.The adventurer in the guild take shifts, Lann was guard a few times too.We met the young one twice or so.At no point was this in question. We still meet him constantly.
>>38023935I was almost certain that children follow their mother race in this setting>>38023938Whatever makes it cuter for you anon
>>38023938>Being disgusted by love.
>>38023935possibly REQM has said it is possible for both monster and human offspring to come from a Multi race Union.
>>38023845I've been questing for years anon. Is this YOUR first quest? This is a terrible approach because it leads to, well, this thread. Unless you're saying that this thread is, in fact, a mass-hallucination and if we load up the archives tomorrow we'll find a surprisingly short thread of high quality in its place, saying REQM has or is dealing with this issue well is blatantly false.I've played through the worst waifu wars and with the best and most harmonious playerbases on the forum. I was there throughout Psion Quest. I was there in a quest that unanimously chose a waifu against 7 - 8 other characters. I'd say I have an idea of how handling romance well works. Part of that is recognizing that it's dependent on your playerbase, and it's easy as shit to see that the longer this is left unaddressed because 'it's not time yet', the bigger the bitchfest about whatever is decided in the end (regardless of what is decided, yes even if it's a 'romance whoever you want' non-decision). Actual romance can wait, clarifying the bounds of said romance should definitely not.
>>38023937Okay, fair enough, but I still like the old guard and think he's pretty cool.>>38023935Maybe the mother is human?
>>38023965>We still meet him constantly.No we don't.We meet guards a lot of times, we met the scared guy, twice or so.
>>38023988>We only met him twice! Honest!Citations please, with counts of how many times he was there VS how many times he wasn't.
Human daughter asking her centaur father why she can't wear his shoes
>>38023942You are reaching serious levels of delusions right now anon.You should probably stop posting for a few minutes.There are a lot of guards. Only the old guy we actually see on a regular basis.The other ones we meet are pretty much different guys each time.
I still want to meet that fat merchant again.I liked him. He was one of those dumb types that do the best they can for their family.
>>38023971>>38023981>>38023986It's just that I started imagining a smaller centaur riding on the back of a larger centaur.It could still be cute conceivably, but also kind of funny.
>>38024007Wouldn't you need to prove first those alleged "constant conversations" we have with him?You are trying to prove the existence of a thing.
>>38024035Care to create a complete citation of times we've visited the guards?Because we've had him and the old man stuck together as a comedy pairing numerous times.
>>38023980Horsedick doesn't have the charm that Horsepussy does.
>>38024012This. Can't we just get back to cute monstergirls doing cute things?
>>38024069Says the guy saying we don't have any proof spiders DON'T have parthenogenesis.Of course there's only two people in the thread, what are you, stupid?
>>38024073No, the old guy is paired with a different one each time.They don't show up as duo.Did you honestly think it was always him with the old guy?Understandable, I guess. Considering he literally has no other character trait except "he getrs scared".

>>38024115It's only a new guy sometimes, anon.You're lying for the sake of, I don't know, making it so we never attempt to talk to a guardsman or something?It's weird how averse you are to talking to any male characters for any length of time.
>>38024073Stop it.We're talking about centaurs now.End of story.For example: I think they have horse related evolutions. Like pegasus, or Sleipnir.
Somehow- Against all odds, against the titanic forces arrayed against you-You manage to wake yourself up at dawn. Before everyone leaves the nest for the day.Maybe you can learn enough enchanting to invent things. Like alarm clocks. Waking up is hard.Not when there's monsters involved, of course. But when there's warm sunlight and warm blankets and nothing to do. Emergencies are easy. You pull yourself up with the same sort of difficulty, slowly yawning and stretching yourself into something resembling a fully functional and awake member of society.Spider society.You almost nod off a few times, but with Ezzy wrapped securely around your throat, all you manage is a head dip. The second your chin contacts her rough scales, you snap back awake, glancing around before slowly starting to drift again. You wonder what it takes to wake up early and stay up.Coffee? Does this world even have coffee?And wasn't there something about spiders and coffee anyway?But you're not really a spider, right? You'll look into it later.Mom is up first, thankfully. Which allows you to bother her much easier."Well, well. Look who is up early this morning, yes.""Is it you?""This is normal for me, dearheart.""It's me, then?""Yes.""I want to go back to sleep, yes."She raises an eyebrow, smirking and waiting."Is there a reason you haven't yet?"You blink slowly, rolling the question in your mind.Questions? Questions..."Questions!"Your mother chokes down a laugh as your head snaps back up, loudly proclaiming your intent. She's even considerate enough to give you a few moments more before she tries to prod you along."And that question is...?""Stuff.""Stuff?""What kind of stuff. What kind of stuff do you need for adventures, yes? Or traveling. Or caravan-ing.""From dazed to full speed. You are a wonder, little one.""I am a giant spider."
>>38024124all of these made my heart smile i would love to see more of it.
>>38023485>Last time I brought it up I got a half dozen replies about how we never talk to him and how it's so far fetched for us to every be friends with him and how it's impossible impossible impossible!But seriously he's kinda a nobody to us.
>>38024138She laughs, and beckons you to follow, leading you upstairs and into her treasury. Her voice trails behind her as you descend into the tree, echoing lightly in the enclosed space."Normally, a good start is clothes, bedding, travel gear and extra food, yes? And you build from there.""Build?""Depending on what you are doing.""Caravan-ing.""Mhm."She steps lightly at the bottom, leading you towards barrels and chests of stored goods."In any case- We are arachne, yes. And we can skip blankets and clothes if need be. You should still take them, of course. It is just not as bad if you lose them.""Okay.""A map and compass are a bit more important. Do you know how to use them?""The compass points... north, yes? And you need to look for landmarks.""Yes, yes. You can even use the stars to tell exactly where you are. With the right tools.""Really? How?""Magic, I think.""You don't know how, then.""Your father does, yes? And I cannot use magic, in any case."
>>38024131I'm not writing the conversations anon. I don't decide how long guardsmen conversations go.You are just really reaching now in your pathetic attempt to make this another shipping war thing
>>38023641Lann is squishy, yes, but she's a far more experienced adventurer than that guy and she's a ranged specialist.
>>38024163Well, neither can you. Not without help. You nod along, and she continues."Extra food is important. Always, always. Dried things, things that won't spoil. We eat a lot, yes.""Mmm.""Rope, you can skip. Hah. And fire starters, torches, you can skip. People take hatchets in case they need small amounts of lumber and the like. To build tents... But you have your magic. And you would need a very large tent, in any case.""I would need to pull a whole tree over, yes.""I may have done that.""Yes?""Twice."You share a laugh in the warm light of magic, and she starts to pull bits of kit out from all over. A neatly folded map, a worn compass. Cloths and bandages, what looks like magical stones, they all vanish into a backpack- Well, a squared sort of sack with a single, wide loop. Maybe for your waist? You mother turns to you, loot in hand, a proud smile on your face, stepping up to you. She stops short of actually handing it off, leaning forwards and squinting."Ah.""Ah?""I think your little snake has grown a bit, yes."Well, that would explain why it took so little movement to touch her with your chin.>Deal with it later.

>>38024161Doesn't change that he immediately gets shot down by the /u/ using any excuse they cobble together.>>38024179To be fair, you did exactly what he predicted you would do, and shot it down as fast as possible.
>>38024131>It's only a new guy sometimes, anon.To be fair, we wouldn' really know.Its not like any of them except the old guy ever get distinguished by anything.

>>38024229It's most likely they're always the same guy whenever they get scared, as only a new adventurer would be scared of arachne around here.It's not like we have visual descriptions of anything anywhere, though.I mean, what COLOR is our shirt right now?
>>38024187>Include snake celebrations in those plans. Start by waking her up.

Into a scarf.It's interesting that Lyra is so off kilter in spite of her lifetime of memories as a human. Also, lacking certain skills such as map reading, but that's to be expected from a IT person from a future setting: no real call for it.
>>38024254>It's most likely they're always the same guy whenever they get scared, as only a new adventurer would be scared of arachne around here.Lyra is the only arachne who comes to town, except her siblings. We got explicitly told that.And Giant Spiders are pretty damn scary.

>>38024286shot down the idea of him having any more screentime, us ever being friends with him, any idea of romance, whatever.Any idea that mentions him is shot down immediately by people like you.Even the ones where we are out to spook him because it is known he is easily spookable.Long story short, there's a lot of shooting down going on in this quest, not just one sided.
>>38024154A Little girl braiding her centaur father's tailTiny spiders racing each other to the top of their father's headA little boy playing cowboys off his centaur father's backLittle Lamia trying to help her father with the dishing that are bigger than she isA little harpy girl trying to warm some chicken eggsA spider girl giving her father a poorly hand made tie for father's dayI'm sure I can do more....
>>38024323We also got explicitly told that anyone who's around here for a while is used to monsters, and people who are -that- scared of arachne get openly laughed at.
>>38024336>the first carrier of an Y chromosome to come into view.That'd be the old guy, and I'd be totally down for that.
>>38024337We have more closer friends and important things to spend REQM's writing time on than him.Why should we give any fucks about him? He's a one or two times funny background event. And absolutely nothing fucking more.
>>38024336>what get shot down?Literally any proposed interaction with him at all, including spooking him for funsies.You'll find any instance of him being talked about is also paired with people like you doing their damndest to make sure he never gets talked about.
>>38024357Not really no.He was laughed at because he tried to put up a brave face and raise his weapon at us.That was the part people usually know better than.
>>38024198Holy shit. That's not what I was doing at all.I don't even like husbandos. I just wanted the thread to stop this arguing nonsense. I legitimately want to talk about species more than individuals.And then you go and start shit.Go fuck yourself, you cancer.
>>38024311>that's to be expected from a IT person from a future settingWe should try to use that knowledge. Maybe we can experiment with our earth powers to make our silk into fiber optics.
>>38024374>like youNice projectin'
>>38024369Because apparently people like him and want to see more of him, anon.By being all "Oh, we have more important things to do so we won't give any fucks about him", you are demonstrating that you will immediately shoot down any conversation involving him.
>>38024410that... has literally nothing to do with this conversation. "you're projecting" can be used in a lot of cases, but in this one it makes no sense at all.You havin' a giggle, m8?
Waking her up pulls away at the end of the race, taking it by a tiny snake-slide.Writing!
>>38024394Sure, sure. Centaur dude brought up as possible LI -> centaur kids talk -> Centaur general talk, certainly isn't related at all.If you wanted to change topics you'd ACTUALLY change topics.
>>38024414You're just buttblasted that more people want to see different things than this one guy.You're demanding reqm pander to you despite being outvoted.
>>38024381It seems all the other adventurers barely even blinked when we got there.They only started giving a shit when we won in some spars.Scaredy guy is scaredy guy confirmed.
>>38024451Actually I'm ecstatic that you guys are immediately proving yourselves wrong when you go on about how hetfags are the only ones who shoot things down.This thread alone is delicious fodder for many arguments to come, about how the /u/ menace will do anything in their power to remove the fun from any conversation about male characters.
>>38024451Why can't you let a guy have his fun, anon? Why do you gotta shoot it down when someone wants to talk about the guy?
>>38024363I've suggested it several times in the past. Each time it was met with ... uh... I actually don't think anyone really reacted to it. Certainly no one was violently opposed to it.
>>38024464We don't actually ever scare any guards.The only two times we did, it was both times explicitly him.He didn't get mentioned as being the junior adventurer ever again after we saw him last after we evolved, and he was paired as guard with Lann.
>>38024520I've reacted with TOO OLD a few times.Other than that I love the guy.
>>38024513I am not shooting down anything but his idiotic whining.>>38024487Why don't you want interacting with any characters that actually have shit to interact about? Like dad or blacksmith.
>>38024450I'm trying, asshat.It obviously didn't work, even if it looked like it would for a moment, but it's more than you did.I dare you to get them to stop arguing and be friendly again.
>>38024540>I'm not shooting anything down!>immediately go on to shoot down any interaction with the guy the anon likesLet the guy like what he likes you fucking hypocrite.Either that or you candidly accept every single time someone bitches up a storm about waifufags when people talk about nin.
>>38024532I would like to know where you are getting the "two" number from, since it is at least several.
>>38024547Getting /tg/ to stop arguing romance (or anything) on purpose is hopeless. It can happen by chance or QM intervention only.Besides, if it keeps up maybe it'll actually make REQM address the big elephant in the thread.
>>38024590Ideally, he just will come out and say "no romance you guys" and let us continue adventuring.
>>38024583Because I don't remember anytime of him being mentioned except when we first came to Oakring and the second time after we evolved.Both times he was mentioned as the "junior adventurer", and after that last time, we didn't encounter the particularly young guard again.And since he was pointed out specifically as that particular person both times, I would think he would have been pointed out as that guy again, if he would have re-appeared.
Anyways, fuck all this.I'm sick of people wanting us to get bigger.We're already critically big, and possibly even too big.
>>38024564>Let the guy like what he likes you fucking hypocrite.He's free to like, but whining about how we never interact with him because that's not what the majority wants is fucking idiotic and that's the sole thing he does."I JUST WANNA HET INTERACTIONS""well fuck why don't you interact with male characters that have shit to interact about and will likely get votes in support"
>>38024607he already did
>>38024590No he won't and its good that way.Adressing romance in a quest not having it as active thing has never ever brought anything good.It would just make things worse, because then people would startk thinking their asinine shitposting about it could actually influence something.
>>38024664Have you ever thought that maybe he might like that specific guy, you hypocritical only-my-fun-is-allowed fuck?You are exactly as bad as him.
>>38024538Oh, right, I remember you. I also remember responding with something like "him being old means he's tough" or something, though that was more to poke at fires since you had a point.We should honestly hang with him, get some war stories or something.>>38024590If only Lyra had known there was an elephant in here, she would have eaten it already.
>>38024682Literally cannot get worse than this barring Psion Quest shenanigans.
>>38024698>Have you ever thought that maybe he might like that specific guHe's bitching about shut down of ALL HET, not about that specific guy.
>>38024636I remember him being there several times.Unless you are going out of your way to assume everyone in the adventuring guild is flighty about arachne when he was the only one actually shown to be that way with any regularity.
>>38024708Oh my sweet summer child.This is nothing.
>>38024717So you're saying you wouldn't shoot down someone trying to romance blacksmith?Because you guys complain to high heavens about people who dislike nin-impregnations.
>>38024590>>38024607>>38024668>>38024682It was addressed- specifically that monsters won't get romantic till between something like 6 months to 2 years old. From any viewpoint, that looks like a 'no problem writing romance, but not at this juncture' message.
>>38024759I agree, but last time I argued that I was drowned in tides of how much we have to go romance our bird, moth, or wolf.
>>38024731>is flighty about arachne when he was the only one actually shown to be that way with any regularity.Well, regularity being twice.In fairness, I don't actually remember any particular flightyness of the guards towards us except those two times. So there is that.
>>38024753>So you're saying you wouldn't shoot down someone trying to romance blacksmith?>jumping the goal post from "interacting" to "romancing"
>>38024799I remember several times, with less flightiness each time.Almost as if it were a character getting used to arachne presence.
>>38024731Honestly, until he showed up beside Lann I assumed he had been shipped out. That people were nervous about him pulling swords around arachne and sent him to train at an adventurers guild with less monsters.I just assumed he was from a farm town somewhere nearby, and had come to the village instead of the city because he was an idiot who got lost.
>>38024810You're the one changing goalposts, as originally it was a /u/ complaint that hetfags were always the ones shooting down romance, and the counterargument was that /u/ fags did exactly as much romance shooting down. Which, you agree, they do.
>>38024836All romance is getting shot the fucking down and that is well and good.
>>38024814You saying you remember is all fine, but Lyra has recognized him both times as that person, so I'm gonna assume it wasn't him, unless Lyra actually recognized him as such.And I can't remember that having happened except those two times.Which is why I asked for cititization of those alleged "constant conversations".
>>38024857While I agree all romance should be shot down, I cannot stand by while one side of the waifu wars claims the other side is the only one shooting things down when both of them are.
>>38024738Anon please. I was in Psion Quest.But please, tell me what was so much worse.>>38024759As I said, that's not addressing it or dealing with it, it's literally putting it off while letting things fester. And this is THE WORST MISTAKE YOU MAKE. The way to deal with romance arguments is to clearly and succinctly inform your players where the lines go, and what can and cannot happen, as soon as said arguments start to become a bother. Time and time again a shitstorm has happened because anons disagree on romance -> QM says nothing and lets both sides duke it out in the threads, working themselves up more and more and getting more emotionally invested in their preferences -> inevitably when things get decided, the anons on the losing side, due to said investment, bitch up a fucking STORM when it happens, often egged on by some poor winners as well.
>>38024753They don't.Also, we would shoot down the blacksmith, he would shoot us down. He knows how old we are, and he isn't a lolicon.
>>38024867I ask for countercitations of gate conversations that don't include him.Just like how I was asked for citations of how spiders DON'T have parthenogenesis.
>>38024875I wasn't claiming any of that.I only take umbrage with guys pushing for wasting QM's time on retreads of one-note jokes."I'm a spider!" - "AUGH! *faints*" is literally all there is to the gate guy and interactions with him. Same with the centaur. He never fucking showed again, stop talking about him.
>>38024890This entire argument got started because one of them was so indignant about nin being shot down that they claimed that hetfags are always the ones shooting things down, and they take whatever too seriously.To claim they don't is an outright fabrication.Listing good reasons why things don't work, like "that's not actually possible" or "they don't actually like us" are included as "shooting down" by their definitions.
>>38024945Fuck you, I want to talk to that centaur at some point.It is a challenge.For that matter, I want to talk to scaredy guardsman, fatman and his family, that guy who fought us once in armor, and our spider army/cousins again.
>>38024886>But please, tell me what was so much worse.My point was there is a pretty significant gap between this and Psion Quest levels. And this is pretty tame as these things go.>>38024899Okay, Thread 47. when we abducted Lann.He wasn't there.Your move.
>>38024973Thread 47, when they rotated him in when lann was off duty.
>>38024993We arrived at the end of the thread anon.At least try.
>>38024971And, now that I'm on this roll:I want to go take nin back to her family at some point before we go, to have a good visit.I want to hang out with the snakes at some point once we get ezzy bigger.I want to steal some of the wendigo moss to have a private garden. probably on our back.I want to make a good house for elle so she can peddle her wares.
>>38024950I think it was the hetfag. The one who was insistent to argue with everyone and "This won't work because I say so, don't bother" and it escalated from there.I don't even think those suggestions were that serious, just anons goofing off. Would have probably faded out on its own fast enough if it was left alone.
>>38025017According to thread 47, that was literally the first time we didn't recognize the guards.Up until that point it was always scaredy guy, lann, and old man.
>>38025075How many times had we visited the village at that point? With guard scenes that is.
>>38025054Yes, yes, you can accuse the other guy of taking things too seriously, just as you take things too seriously.If you weren't taking them too seriously, you'd be OK with laughing it off and saying that, sure, some of this was on you.
>>38025035All great ideas.Elle's going to be the shopkeeper that sells upgraded gear after completing fetch quests for her.
>>38025075Nope. Thread 26, when we brought in the merchant where different guys again, even old guy wasn't there.We recognize a lot of them, doesn't mean it was only three people. You can remember more than three faces.I can do this all day, really.
>>38025095Quite a lot, we were pretty regular visitors there and this was the heyday of the "bring silk in for dosh to buy things for elle" era. Before she had enough things.
>>38025119Yes, you can shoot things down all day. Thank you for proving my point.I will be using this thread as a citation next time the /u/fags claim they are completely innocent in this.
>>38025121I honestly can't remember us visiting the village that much, in terms of number of comings and goings not off-screen.
>>38025119Old guy was there. But he was accompanied by a different guy. Corrction.
>>38025147I'm not shooting anything down, except the claim we constantly meet that junior adventurer.Because its a provably false claim.Not sure where you get /u/ from this.
>>38025147Anons were literally asked to find occasions when he wasn't there.
>>38025096Why are you assuming I got involved when someone started an argument. I like staying out of those, since I usually always think of how the other guy would respond and it would keep escalating. I usually ignore or wait them out, but the whole thread's an argument now.Don't pin any of this shit on me, or I'll assume you had a hand in this yourself.
>>38025075Thread 25. Young guard wasn't even there. And plus you're lying out of your ass: you forget about the experienced adventurer guy.>>38025147>Claims that a specific character is doing a specific thing every time>Is proved to be wrong several times>"Ah, proof that the /u/fags are shooting down everything I say!"Seriously?
>>38025147He was actually asked to show examples of him not being there.You can't really complain about someone responding to requests of proof, with actual proof.
>>38025172>provably falsebut you've not proven anything. You just insist that any time we see him, it's actually another guy.>>38025184If you guys weren't dead set on shooting things down, you'd have just let it hang.But no, you insist on shooting down these things.
>>38025207>You just insist that any time we see himNo, I insist we don't actually seen him more than once. And I keep giving examples,you aren't for some reason.
>>38025207That's /u/fags for you, man.They take this shit SUPER SERIOUS. They can never just let these things go.this is exactly how the thread was earlier, but opposite
>>38025207>"I ask for countercitations of gate conversations that don't include him."So, uh. Yeah. If you don't want people counter-citing you, don't ask people to counter-cite you.
>>38025240More than twice. Obviously, I already said as much.First trip, and post skull trip.
>>38025258I asked specifically so I would have instances of /u/fags clamoring to do anything they can to shoot down the idea of talking to him without needing to archive binge.
>>38025285Ah, so you're a troll. Got it. Well played. Now fuck off.
>>38025308Nah, just slightly more honest about my intentions than just claiming I was joking or not being serious.
>>38025285Well no one is stupid enough to do that. You can go now.
>>38025285But he didn't shoot that down at all. he just provided evidence we haven't talked as often to him as you claim.That has nothing to do with future conversations.
>>38025376>providing evidence>not shooting it downSo talking about how spiders don't actually do parthenogenesis isn't shooting things down either?
>>38025399You don't have evidence for that though. Because this is a different setting, with magic to boot.
>>38025399I'm not actually sure what exactly that'd be shooting down, givent hat its not relevant to anything.
>>38025399Well when you're being so anal about it it can certainly come off as such.For one, I think we're past that now. Clearly I was mistaken.
>>38025448>asking people to prove a negativeAll spiders shown have no parthenogenesis capability. All magic shown has no ability to cause this either. AND real spiders don't do it either.
>>38025506>All spiders shown have no parthenogenesis capability.Before Lyra volved we could say the same thing about shaping metal with your mind.
>>38025478>pointing out how we don't actually have the capability to do any of the things a guy suggests>being analAbout as anal as repeatedly pointing out a character a guy likes is a noncharacter and we should never see him again because we have more important things to do.
>>38025506>This shit again.Seriously, didn't we have that argument already? And aren't you reusing old points, which will get the same counter-points in reply?
>>38025542>and we should never see him againNever see him again=/=not actively seeking him outWe will see him again when REQM feels like making a joke involving him again.
>>38025539That isn't actually as relevant as it sounded in your head, as you are still asking someone to prove a negative.Also, metal was explicitly listed as an element we could have rolled long before.I don't remember "reproduction via budding" being on that list of possible magics.
>>38025506Nobody asked you to prove it though, unlike the scaredy-guard thing. If people had seriously suggested it at some point, REQM could easily affirm/deny.
>>38025570Okay.Before we found the necklace we could say the same thing about magic that can store things in extradimensional spaces
>>38025567The counter-points were "stop shooting down our precious /u/shipping".And now we're onto discussion on whether it is truly shooting it down. which apparently isn't.>>38025575see>>38022847>>38025592You're still not making any case for parthenogenesis. It's like claiming that because we found giant squids, OBVIOUSLY there are dragons.Please produce the dragons.
>>38025506>>38025625Also, multiple species of spiders are actually parthenogenetic, just saying. Theotima minutissimus is the most well known one.
>>38025625>You're still not making any case for parthenogenesis.I'm not trying to. I was just pointing out that >All spiders shown have no parthenogenesis capability.doesn't have any merit as argument.
>>38025643And this is the part where I claim you are taking it too seriously.
You grin hard enough to feel it in your cheeks, bring a hand up to your neck, stroking along her scales. You can't see them just yet, but they feel rougher. More pronounced. Still a single, cohesive surface, but- Bumpy? Scaly?Reptilian scale patterns were not your particular interest.The little snake grumbles, one hand falling free of it's grip, slapping sleepily at your fingers.You snag her digits carefully, tugging at her arm, holding it far enough out that you can see it. And then you start in with the baby speak."Oooh, lookit this little arm. Lookit how big it is! Our tiny snake is growing up!"You cackle at your Mom's expression, at the angry muttering beginning to float from around your neck.There's a lot of hissing mixed in.Probably snake swearing."Issa big girl gonna wake up? Is she?"Ezzy pries her hand free- You can't hold on too tightly. Not without hurting her, anyway.Then she slaps blindly at your chin, her hand clapping against your face."Sssshu-up. Sssleeping."You prod her again, and are rewarded with another hiss."If you don't wake up, you won't get to see how big you've gotten, yes."There's a moment of silence as she tries to process what you said.A slow, timeless instant where her sleep addled brain snags on the idea, rolls the words around.
>>38025662>basic pattern recognition?>NO MERIT!spiders don't do parthenogenesis in the setting, bro.
>>38025675And then the explosion of flailing, twisting, unwinding snake-girl as you laugh, catching her easily in your palms after she wriggle her way entirely free.Her face, her entire body are flushed with excitement, the sensation of her heart pounding through her whole body. She looks to be almost four feet, now. Probably a few inches shy. Her hair hasn't changed much, if at all- but her scales have darkened all over. She does have a trio of rings right before her scales give way to flesh, though- beige brown beige. It's the sort of thing you'd normally miss.It's the sort of thing that'd normally be under clothes. You avert your eyes as you think about it. Nobody else grew quite so drastically. Her dress is more of a halter top, in any case."Ha... HA! Hahahah! I am an adult! Yes! I knew it! I knew there was a secret! It worked!"Mom gives you a look and a shrug, and you smile."An adult, yes.""Yes!""We will get you some adult clothing, then."She looks, down, past the hem of her now too small tunic.A blush crawls across her face, but she puts her hands to her hips, and meets your eyes anyway."I am an adult and proud of my body."You nod, and head back into the sunshine with your mother trailing behind.>This is the point where you wake up Elle. >Give her a napkin. Or something. Anything.>Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.>Other (?)
>>38025668I love how you guys keep getting blown off today.>We meet the scared gaurd guy constantly, Prove that we don't!>Gets proven we don't.>spiders can't do parthogenesis>gets proven some doIts hilarious.>>38025682Which is the point at which I repeat.Before Lyra evolved the same was true for metal shaping, and we haven't actually found out if any spider we met has parthogenesis. For all we know they can, we have no proof Lyra can't do it.And even less she can't develop the ability with evolution.
>>38025702>This is the point where you wake up Elle. >Give her a napkin. Or something. Anything.Seriously. We're a clothes workshop.
>>38025702>This is the point where you wake up Elle. >Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.oh elle we got a new vict... model for you.
>>38025702>>This is the point where you wake up Elle. >>Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.More Elle fun
>>38025702>This is the point where you wake up Elle.>Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.
>>38025702>Give her a napkin. Or something. Anything.Poking sounds lewd, so.
>>38025731I like how fucking serious the /u/boats are about shooting everything they don't like down today.>we have no proof they CAN'T! Seriously you guys!If the best you can do really asking someone to prove a negative? Is that the end result of all your argument? "Oh, we can do it, because even though it's never been a thing in the setting, the setting it's based on, or the magic system, I want it to be a thing!"?Please provide proof.
>>38025731well the problem with evolutions is we have to be on the path to them and to get there we have to grasp the defining trait of these evolutions and follow them besides that what could these forms possibly offer us in any shape way or form?
>>38025702>>Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.She can wait on the dress, she didn't help us when Nin and Elle and Lann ganged up on us!... Even though we totally set ourselves up for that one!
>>38025702>This is the point where you wake up Elle. >Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.
>>38025702>Give her a napkin. Or something. Anything
>>38025702>>This is the point where you wake up Elle. >>Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.Not-so-tinySnek needs new clothes. And we need to find out how her evolution stacks up against her originally.
>>38025731What the fuck are you talking about?Of course we can't evolve that shit.How would we even go about evolving that shit?What possible blessing would go towards that shit?Why are you taking this so seriously?At least the skull thing makes sense because we're getting tougher.
>>38025702>This is the point where you wake up Elle. >Give her a napkin. Or something. Anything.Lamia Evo. Cuuuute.
>>38025702>Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.If she is comfortable dressed as she is, let her. After all, she Is an Adult...
>>38025731Seriously, You should just sht up about this already. Neither sides are proving anything with this argument except that youre both willing to ruin the Quest to push your personal agendas.
>>38025792>Please provide proof.For what? I have already proven the possibility exists. I don't have anything left to proof.>because even though it's never been a thing in the settingIs your argument seriously that the setting can't possibly have anything it not yet shown?
>>38025731But it's been proven we've seen him at least three times, if not more.Compared to the guy earlier who was insisting we only ever saw him once.
>>38025817>skull = tougherWhat?
>>38025834>I've already provided no proof, that's enough proofIs your argument seriously that you don't need to prove anything, and that all fetishes you enjoy will be automatically inserted?
>>38025839>But it's been proven we've seen him at least three times, if not more.No, it wasn't. We have met him twice, it was always said we met him twice, and we have yet to get a prove for a third time. I'm still waiting.And "three" times, is still far away from the earlier claim of "constantly".
>>38025702>This is the point where you wake up Elle.Throw a snake at her
>>38025865well the skull protects our backside and is nearly indistructible.
>>38025865We unlocked the grave arachne evolution by being TUFF and fighting BIG THING.Which gave us a huge armor plate in the shape of a skull.>>38025874Technically, you've yet to prove the two number.
I had a funny thought. How do you think things would change if Lyra had met, and brought home everyone as usual, but they had been boys instead of girls?
>>38025867Oooh, I need to go get myself some popcorn. 'Fetish' has been used, it begins again.
>>38025885Skulls really aren't notably tough in the grand scheme of things. I mean, decently so for a part of animal body-structure, usually, though let down by the shape, but not compared to other materials.
>>38025874>>38025834can you just fucking stop ruining the thread? We get it. You want parthenogenesis and refuse to provide any evidence for it. It's fine. Just don't act like it's realistic.
>>38025922that might be so but the QM stated that it was i think it even is in our character sheet.
>>38025894I think Mom would be increasingly flustered, and it'd be hilarious. Same if the boys started bring home other girls.
>>38025922They're quite literally the toughest part of an animal.except MAYBE the big leg bone.
>>38025892>Technically, you've yet to prove the two number.What number two?We met him the first visit, and after we got our skull.I'm waiting for someone to show me a third meeting.The only response I got was "prove times we didn't". And I did.I'm still waiting for someone to return the courtesy.
>>38025702>Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.>Give her a napkin. Or something. Anything.
>>38025960I'm waiting on you to make a list of times we visited so you can say with confidence "two".you've not proven we've ever seen him more than once.
>>38025894Why would anything change?>>38025968That, I guess.
>>38025702>Other.Point out that she's still tiny.
Snakepoke.exe is queued directly behind the whisperaneedforclothesthenflee.exeAlso known as summonelle.exe.Writing!
Anyway, long story short, all sides involved are bad and horrible and we should never talk about romance again.Or, if we do, we should never insist the opposite romance won't happen.
>>38025985>>Why would anything change?Because the little girl spider would be collecting an array of little monster boys? And teenaged Lamia boy, I guess
>>38026005It won't end here, anon. It never does.
>>38026005>and we should never talk about romance againNah, fuck it. I will keep talking about things I find fun. And clearly REQM finds it fun too, otherwise Nins crush wouldn't be a thing.People will just have to learn to life with people liking things they don't like.And we actually manage most threads.
>>38026005It's not exactly going to help, we'll just find the next spiderbutt or Sheszka armor to argue about in the meantime.
>>38026031Still all children, so nothing would change.Only maleLann would be different.
>>38026055Well, as long as you can manage with me telling you that shit is creepy, unlikely, and that the QM has stated a few times he doesn't want to deal with romance.
>>38026064Those are better arguments.BIG SPIDERBUTT WORST SPIDERBUTTWE SHOULD STOP GROWING
>>38026092>that shit is creepyNo, you can feel free to find it creepy, and say that. But if you try to claim it IS creepy, I'm going to disagree with you.
>>38026092That attitude doesn't help.Take a few deep breaths, change your tone, and then come back to post please.Just because I'm skeptical that this will ever end, doesn't mean I don't want it to happen.
>>38026112you are not going to stop the growth anon we are already on the path of EKSBAWKS HUGE.
>>38026055can your /u/goggles get any tighter?Next you're going to tell me brograbs are gay.
>>38026112ASURA SPIDERFOUR ARMS 4LYFE
>>38026148Of course they are anon, that's why we do them.Right?
>>38026122That shit is straight up CoC tier creepy.Especially when the word "ovipositors" is brought up.eeugh.>>38026162Brograbs are pure.
>>38026148I have no idea what a brograb is.Explain, please?
>>38026185>>38026197Brograbs.Almost as much a sign of pure bro affection as the brobump.
>>38026182>biology is creepyAlright anon. Maybe you aren't right in a quest with insect people if you are creeped out by insect biology?
>>38026185>>38026197It's when you touch a friends and it's not sexual. Because you're friends. And not sexual. That can be a thing.
>>38026206So basically a Brohug?
>>38026208Thankfully, we don't have creepy-ass external ovipositors.And double thankfully, we never have to inject our young into some poor animal that will later be chestburster'd after being mind controlled by the fuckers for a while.Jesus christ, nature.
>>38026182>Ovipositers.I'm pretty sure I don't agree with you on most things throughout this thread (anonymous gonna anonymous. No way to tell outright) But I find myself agreeing with you there. That's /d/ territory.
>>38026243and I forgot my picture because of captcha
>>38026243I think you might want to read a bit up about biology, because you seem to have some serious misconceptions about what ovipositors are usually used for.
Still hope one of the twins will try to court one of the girls.
>>38026243Son, you haven't even begun to curse nature.
>>38026278Well, there's the one kind that just lays eggs.Then there's the external kind that is used to stab bugs, inject mind control eggs that devour them from inside, and chestburst out.So when people talk about having an external ovipositor to put eggs in things, I'm kind of creeped the fuck out.
page 9 guys just a heads up.
>>38026270Emerald Jewel Wasps are fucking scary. I hope we don't meet the monster equivalent.
>>38026282That earns a beating.You do NOT hit on your sister's friends, you also don't ever turn them down if they hit on you, in fact, it's a better idea to have no contact with the female friends of your sister.
>>38026282>dating your sisters friendsThats just not done.
>>38026286thank GOD we have a liver.We do have a liver right?We better have a fucking liver, I don't want no fungus growing in my body fluids.>>38026315I completely disagree.
>>38026331Then you are a fool who does not have a sister near the same age as you.
>>38026315That explains so much.>"I'm kind of tired. I want to go home.">"Lyra and her friends are there.">"More hunting then."Doesn't matter if there's no chance of anything happening or any interest whatsoever, they don't even take the risk.
>>38026282Since, as people don't tire to remind us, all of us are still far too young for such concerns. The chances we and our friends are still around when they start being interested in these things, are fairly small.
>>38026331>LiverYou think a lump of meat will protect you against a species of Cordyceps that has evolved to fuck you up?It won't, if you want an idea of what a species of Cordyceps that evolved to fuck with humans is like, play The Last of Us, or alternatively look at the Flood from Halo.
>>38026372REQM did tell us one of the reasons we barely saw them was because they were scared of their sisters.So this might actually be somewhat true.
>>38026374>all of us are still far too young for such concerns.QM already nixed that
Are we archived?We're on page 9 already and reqm is still writing.
>>38026410Really? Did we get a word on already being old enough?Must have missed that.
>>38026418yeah i checked we are.
>>38026387Actually most things with livers and kidneys are completely safe from cordyceps.It's why it tends to stick to bugs and smaller creatures that operate via having HORDES OF KIDS. They don't actually have the blood purification systems we do.
>>38026409Aria is combat crazy, Elle is clothes crazy, Sara is magic crazy, and Lyra is Lyra crazy. Quite honestly they have every right to be scared of them.
>>38026444It was mostly them being bigger and stronger. But I suppose how things turned out justified their concern in hindsight.Pretty sure they will have enough of womenspiderfolk for a long time.
>>38026444They've got the whole creepy twins thing going, so I don't think that excuse has much merit
>>38026480Pretty sure everyone in this family is convinced he is the sane one sorrounded by nutjobs.
>>38026480It's a coping mechanism, mate. PTSD from having four sisters and Nialla as a mother.
Huh, does anyone here actually know our brothers names?
>>38026510I don't even know our mom's name.
>>38026480More like competitive twins. Creepy would be talking simultaneously word for word.
>>38026499They were the creepy twin when we were still hunting thunderwolves.
>>38026510Zach and E something or other
>>38026510Read the pic name.
>>38026528We could never tell them apart.
>>38026510>>38026527 (The Suite Web of) Zach and Ephram.And Mom's Nialla.
>>38026531ephram.also FUCK YOU captcha, I am typing these things correctly.
>>38026499I don't think they've ever seen mom's "training" face. Between how absent they are and that aria takes up most of her time on top of the fact that they don't really fight they just hunt simple game I don't think they've ever experienced her training.
>>38025702>Give her a napkin. Or something. Anything.>Poke her a bit. Find out what she can do now.Play around a bit until Elle gets up.
>>38026569You're a bit late.
>>38026595Yeah, the arguments make the thread hard to follow.
Step one, at least, couldn't get any easier. You make it down to the nest in no time, crawling over family and friends alike till you reach Elle. The you shake her, twice, ignoring the murmured complaints, and lean down next to her ear.And whisper."Elle, we need clothes, please."And then you snap your head back so fast you nearly give yourself whiplash. Because the alternative would be a headbutt from your sister at something approaching mach two."Mmnmnm- Clothes?"You hold out the mostly naked snake, still posing with her hands on her hips.Elle pinches at her hips, her scales. Ezzy attempts to complain, and is summarily ignored."Arms.""I still have arms.""Arms up."Now there is a tone that brooks no argument. She actually sounded like Mom for a minute.A few more lightning quick measurements are taken, and Elle looks away, already pulling out silk and thread.She has stacks of it.Stacks. And she still sells more to the town.That is all sorts of impressive.Luckily enough, there's other things to interest you at the moment.You start by poking the snake."Stop that.""Your scales are rough now, yes. What else has changed?"She glances down to your hands.
>>38026624"How can you tell if anything is rough through this?"She knocks her knuckles against your chitin."I can even feel your heartbeat through it. It is very sensitive.""Really? So when I squeeze, it hurts?""No."She scowls at you."Why are you angry that you can't hurt me?""I should be stronger!""I think there is a difference between stronger and 'crushing arachne chitin', yes.""That's... probably fair.""Mhm.""So.""So?""What else has changed, yes?""I'm bigger.""I meant things that I can't tell just by looking."She crosses her arms, frowning and thinking."I don't think there's anything new. I feel... happy? energetic?""Those are new?"There's another blush."Yes?""Mhm.""Well, those are good things to have. And you are quite a bit larger, yes.""Yes!"And then Elle turns around with what appears to be a handful of lace."Arms up, yes."
>>38026640>And that's it for today!>Next thread will be sometime saturday, probably near 230.>As usual, comments, questions and concerns answered while the thread lasts!
>>38026667How many rocks are large enough to us to lean around in the village so that we can finally get the jump on that centaur?Also, does lann have pants yet?Also also, what are we doing with all the old clothes we don't use? Do we eat them? Do we eat silk like normal spiders?
>>38026667Thanks for running.Care to give info on our snakes new form?
>>38026640godsdammit elle what is up with your obssesion of lace.
>>38026702Lace is nice, yes.
>>38026667How old is our wolf?
>>38026667Thanks for running and putting up with us, REQM.Sorry about the mess.Could you update the Species Info pastebin? We need an entry for Lamias. Probably centaurs too.
>>38026691>Do we eat them? Do we eat silk like normal spiders?Lyra mentioned once only Elle does that.
>>38026714I imagine she's a few months old like us.Alright, enough tripcode for me. The time has passed.
>>38026731I keep saying we need to drink more food.We also need to eat more silk.
>>38026691You can make rocks. It's a nonissue.Lann does indeed have pants.While you (and your family, father and sheszka excluded) are fully capable of digesting your own silk, you use venom and saliva to break it down, leaving you dehydrated and incredibly thirsty. Nobody likes doing it.>>38026695Ring Lamia. Generic evolution. Larger, rougher scales, overall improvements to stats and abilities.Much more venomous than before.>>38026714You'll have to ask!(Older than you.)>>38026719I'll see about getting it done before saturday's thread.
>>38026640>"I don't think there's anything new. I feel... happy? energetic?">"Those are new?">"Yes?"I don't think that's specifically because of your evolution, Ezzy.
>>38026816So Sheska has inherited our venomous fangs?
>>38026881She actually might get those.
>>38026881insert crack about how she wouldn't as that is an elf power, and she is a spider wolf.
>>38026837That depends... maybe there is a snake evolution which allows for the creation of multiple types of venom, some not being harmful in nature....
>>38026766>>38026714I think there's a good chance that she's actually slightly older than us. I'd say no more than one or two weeks, /maybe/ three at the most.
Additionally, I feel we should sell or give out disgusting meatshakes to people.Mostly for the laughs.
>>38026921Plot twist, wolves age at something closer to a human standard?
>>38026917Like an adrenaline shot, or an anesthetic? Or just a zesty drink?
>>38026816Can we get some hobbies for Jin and Sheszka, to flesh/round them out?Maybe when Lyra talks about navigating by the stars with Erics, Jin sits up and takes up a hobby of stargazing.Not sure for Sheszka however.
>>38026961Yum.>>38026917Not exactly the point I was getting at... but hey, why not. How would she even get that evolution, anyways? Poison variability is mostly a moth thing, after all.
>>38027157>yumYou betcha.Also we can determine which of the villagers do squatz and oatz by seeing which come back for more protein shakes.
>>38027154>hobby for shezkaA batman scenario, except instead of going after criminals she goes after warbands.
>>38027320Something, those 2 are the ones that feel pushed aside by snarkier and more interesting characters, with more personality.Something so their life does not consist solely of Lyra and sleep.
