Max, a college student born in Earth, was transported to a fantasy world, where he instantly meets the BBEG, the Lich Overlord.But after one solid uppercut, Max vanquished the menacing final-boss, ending the terrible Lich's reign. However instead of finding peace in the land, Max decided to become the new Lich Overlord and rule Asleit, the Kingdom of Monsters.The Kingdom of Monsters, which is in currently in war against the humans, is an unlawful place where no education, military, agriculture are present. But all of that is slowing changing, through Max's lead.>Queue in opening theme song--->http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=(Not)Overlord%20Quest@QmBello
I wonder if all the mana colors have an empowerment spell like Red(empower) and Blue(heal funnily enough)? If so maybe we can experiment by casting them on aligned creatures to see the effects.

Bind my enemies. White Imprisonment!"Just like how the spell book mentioned, a white chain flew right off Max's palm and entangled it's target.The chain managed to hold 3 tentacles in place, however, the Poly just quickly grew 3 more."Overlord of Max, you know how to use white magic?" said with a tint of surprise in the changeling's voice.Max nodded back,"I'm full of surprises actually.""Is that so? Then I shall become a little more wary."The Poly then ran towards Max while the tentacles proceeded to attack again.The 3 chained tentacles seemed to be slowing the Poly down, however.>Dodge'em the tentacles!

>>38223543White pacify is basically no attacks from either side until it expires.>>38223547Liches rule via mindmagic something Poly is no better at than us. Liches are all glass cannons and have to rely on minions to not get offed. Remember how easily we killed the other 2 liches?

>>38223575Maybe he is not fit to rule, but if an overlord can be beaten by a pillar, than that's not a good overlord to have at all.
>>38223648>Pretty much done with the post>See this>O-o-okay
>>38223655Any overlord is going to be outperformed by his pillars Physically, and magically. They only reason they rule is because they are the only one able to coordinate the monsters capably. They are the only ones with strong enough mind magic to guide a rule. They have no other types of magic offensive or defensive and they are frail as all hell.
>>38223783The fact that they kept the monsters in line with mind magic, but we couldn't keep Poly in check even though any other lich could do so, would invalidate our right to rule because we can't do what any other lich can do. That will become obvious if we call the other Pillars for help, that we don't have the mind magic that other liches have to maintain actual control over them.
>>38223359Max proceeded to dodge again.This time, however, it was much easier to get away from the tentacle's paths.A lot easier, in fact, it was like the first series of dodge was all Max needed to read the Poly.'Strange, it's like he's using the same attacks ---' Then the realization came to Max.Attack Patterns.Poly just used the same movements from the first time. Just like how video game's bosses programmed a limited amount of movements."Goddess of Light. Send down a force of Protection. Wall."The 6 feet, white wall plopped right in front of Max, blocking the Poly's charge.However, the Lich felt something odd, a sense of worry washed over him.>Something is wrong.

>>38223783>Physically of course, we are fragile humanoid bones>MagicallyI'm not sureWe haven't really received any information confirming or denying either case, but I'm just assuming that the overlords sometimes have to be stronger than the pillars. First, always the toughest of liches get the position, because weak ones can't get it, or get killed in owning it.Second, what keeps a stronger monster to just use a lich skull as communication device an reign supreme?

"God of Blue. I ask of you to give my ma-"The long chant was interrupted by a large crashing sound.Turning his head, Max saw his White Wall in crumbles and a giant dragon, that fills up almost the entire room, rushing out in a incredible pace.All the items and the room started breaking apart as the dragon heads towards Max and Poly#2.>Gasp>Drop your mouth>Pray
>>38224385>Drop your mouthI'm not gonna lie, that's pretty impressive

>>38224385Max dropped his mouth and stood in place, but a slight shove barely moved him out of the way.A slight whisper filled Max's ear."Overlord. Live on."Max turns towards the Poly#2, but the dragon's mouth chomped half of the changeling's body.The dragon, however, still couldn't stop moving and instead went through the walls head-on and created a giant hole.The wind generated from the monster's movement also blew Max, the other half of Poly's body, and some items out of the hole.Some of flying debris even damaged the frail, skeleton body. He felt something in his left-arm being ripped off, too.In a few seconds, Max flew out his castle and was falling from an incredible height. The Lich could see the dragon circling above high in the sky.'Is this also an attack pattern...'Then the dragon dived straight down with it's mouth open, just wide enough to gulp Max whole and more.'I don't think I can live through this.'

>>38225417Quickly, Max thought of an image of a wall being used as a ramp."Goddess of Light. Send down a force of Protection. Wall."An overstretched, diagonal wall formed right below the skeleton as he used it as a ramp.However, the force generated from the fall was still too much. As the skeleton rolled down, plenty of bones started flying off. Max also noticed that his left arm was already ripped off, too.After a couple of seconds, Max finally plopped to the ground. 'This... this would have been bad if I was still human.'The injury produced from the battle so far was pretty grave. Both arms were gone, half of his left leg shattered, and many of his ribs were missing too.'No, this is still bad.'Max lied down on the ground with most of his body parts gone. A sense of tiredness started filling the Overlord's mind.However, it wasn't sleepiness that was coming to him."A-am I d-dying?"The obvious decision right now was to cast Blue Heal, but the tiredness wanted Max to stay still for a short while.Shortly, the dragon quickly landed next to Max.>'Overlord of Max, if you were a true Lich, you would have casted mind-magic on me and easily ended this battle. But instead, you commit unorthodox magic and lose. So here, I shall end your life.'The dragon opens it's mouth and drops it only slightly above Max's body. The Poly was just waiting for Pacify to end.

>>38226067Strange, Max felt something odd with his oncoming spell.Like it was already prepared and there's no need for a chant. 'Huh, I thought being chantless would have taken much more longer. Maybe, it's because I casted about 500 of those orbs already?'Since the Lich was armless, Max instead started sending the power through his mouth.'Still, I need a kickass name for this.'Sensing the danger, the dragon quickly tried to bite the Lich.'Man this guy's drool is all over me... Ahh I got a name now.'As Poly was almost finishing his lunch, a shout came out from the skull."DRAGON SLAYER."
>you would have casted mind-magic on me and easily ended this battleOkay, so that means that there actually is a group of spells that comprise mind-magic, that liches can use, that lets liches control monsters.Aside from every monster automatically knowing when we are challenged to a duel, the fact that we don't have the mind-magic to be an Overlord is enough reason for the Pillars to overthrow us. Calling for their help would have apparently been a very bad idea.
>>38226740We need a mind magic spell book asap, or lots of fucking practice.
>>38226740Yeah, let's keep in mind that we might promote teamwork of monsters, we can't use the same thing against monsters who explicitly challenge us.
>>38226800Thankfully we're a fuck huge mage, we just need more tomes and time to practice spells.
>>38226800I think it's even more important that we remember we're working with monsters, not humans. Their way of thinking and acting is NOT human, and we shouldn't expect them to act in a human way.Not just because they're monsters, but also because they're all sociopaths because their emotions are behind a magical mind-lock.
>>38226851Yes, this relative powerlessness to our subordinates irks me>>38226940So so far what we gathered about commanding monsters>They are prone to taking things literally>The are used to a strength-based hierarchy>We must also tell them what NOT to do and not just what to do
>>38226581Max lied down and looked at the scenary above him. His new Red Pierce, Dragon Slayer, sent out a giant red beam that evaporated everything in it's path.The beam even created a giant hole in the clouds. Max can hear something crawling to him.He turned his head to see a bunch of dragon's body parts and a half-eaten Poly crawling to him. "So you won?""Yep.""Oh. I liked that boner joke by the way.""I should have said suck on myunorthodox magic, instead"" Maybe, the bottom half of the body is destroyed. .""Hey, your a pretty cool guy, Pylo.""Thank you."---quickly someone post a picture of Max and pylo chilling on the floor
>>38227291Well I hope you enjoyed the battle.Im going to be back like in 4-5 hours.
>>38227291Cast a blue heal on him, and ask if he could fetch that little guy who is proficient with using dark mana healing
>>38227509We can self heal anon.>>38227492Thanks!
>>38227530Then ask him to fetch our arms at least, and some ribsI'd still like to learn the dark mana variant of healing, even if we can't really use it with our 90% resistance
>>38227582It kills the little guy a bit every time he uses it. Try blue first.
>>38227603Well I just want him to teach us, not use on us. Regrowing our arms will most likely kill him.I also want to repopulate his species somehow
>>38227630yeah one step at a time.
>>38227509You are aware how that spell works right?Its a life transferal spell hence why its considered black magic. Also explains his aging.I am curious about if unholy magic heals us as we are undead or about health transfer instead of life.
>>38227705Perhaps we could use it in an offensive form, drain health from others?
>>38227760I would imagine health drain and health transfer are quite similar. Though the spell we would use would be a bit different maybe something like a vampire drain spell considering were undead...we'll likely need a special subset of the spell.One taking the health of others and the other transferring your own to someone else.The old monster though uses a seemingly high level black magic spell as its full blown life transfer not just health but your very life force gets used up in the process.A nasty little spell but one that is capable of healing even the undead.
>>38227882Maybe we could reverse the little guy's magic and give him health instead taking. Thus making him younger, finding a way to pass on his knowledge, and/or repopulate his race, and have a whole species of healers in our army
>>38227983That would require a life transfer spell and i have no idea how that would work as a undead casting it.We are better off finding monsters who are capable of learning spells. Make them learn some damned healing spells. Though finding undead capable of learning undead healing spells may be easier or harder I don't know which.Gonna have to go shopping around for monsters with some decent brain. Including smart undead who hopefully can fling around unholy spells.Or figure out how to make potions and hand them out to our forces.
>>38228129I honestly doubt that can be done, we are the brains of this operation, and no one else.Monsters aren't flexible on their own eitherI wanted the little dude, because it's been established that while they were around it was their gig to heal monsters
>>38228227I am more concerned about how all the monsters including our MEGA bosses follow a fixed techniques for fighting.If there aren't undead magi I am gonna be shocked.Those fuckers are blimey useful against the living with their spells of healing their own undead and harming the living AT THE SAME TIME.Hated fighting those fuckers in RPGs especially if they had the AoE versions...
>>38228275We'll see. Maybe we can teach some of the smarter Monsters to think outside the box. Lixiver and Queen seem like good choices with Pylo of course. Zimbul's best hope is our BLue heal supercharging him into something better. Jjreet is going to need some major work and My who is a caster need to be way more proactive and inventive than we have seen.
>>38228596Queen is royalty, she is used to order lesser being, perhaps from birth. As for Lixiver, he isn't originally a monster.
>>38228596Queen is a staunch believer in the Monster System that they have in place, and ate her mother to ensure its continuation.Lixiver is a Fallen Angel and doesn't have much respect for us.
>>38228648yeah as such we can get them to think far easier than the others. Lixiver has a name for Our sake! Meaning he has some spark of emotion and individuality that we can use. Queen too. If they can think and plan on their own while being loyal to us,we'll be doing much better.>>38228714Lixiver likes us more after we dark feared the assembly hall and won our fight. Queen really adored being thanked. We start small guys, ensure Pylo being a bro/broette with us and go from there.
>>38228714I think it has been established that he no longer has any doubt for us
>>38228760I just hope s/he has Loyalty among hose new emotions. Sounds pretty bro tier so far tough
>>38228819So far so good, Going to bat for it probably helped a lot. Might want to tell it what we saw in the prophecy shard in private.
>>38228888Or maybe just send him off, and let fate do the trick. This plan needs some thinking tough.We'll need to ask the other pillars why was the war declared exactly, and we need to decide what to do with emotions
>>38228959We need to keep it close to us for the time being. Help it figure out it's emotions and quite frankly sending it to hero atm would be bad. As for humans we might have to smacka few around beforethey are willing to listen to us. As for reasons to war? Monster eat humans(some anyways) humans kill any monster they see, mosnters losing badly until lich saves them, makes nation and boom war.
>>38228993I don't think we could or should try to make perfect unity. Monsters will always try to eat humans, and humans will always try to hunt monsters for different reasons.However we should make sure that no wholesale slaughter, and genocide occurs.
>>38229801Well yeah, but We're going to have to force the humans and heroes back to force a stasis. We'll need the monsters to have competent leadership and many other things for it to work.
>>38229859Perhaps we could lay down some ground rules. Like no killing in cities, be it monster or human
>>38229911we'll see, remember Most monsters that don't raise their young or are solitary won't see things like we do.
>>38229978Perhaps we will need to build some cities after we made the army and organized Alseit.Monsters sure are a lot of work.
>>38230059Yeah they do, hence why I wanted tog et the smarter and more independent ones ready to truly lead.
>>38230059Yeah no kidding. I was also wondering how we would get construction underway in Alseit. How are we going to train our subjects basic principles of architecture?
>>38230414Pylo can help with that. S/He's a genius when it needs to be. hence keeping close to us for now.
>>38230491I was actually using that as an example of the many, many difficulties we will face logistically building a kingdom. Let's say we want to build a castle. To start with we would have to have monsters cut and shape the stones required, then move them to the site. Then we would need to be sufficiently organized to construct a coherent structure, as well as the scaffolding and supporting structures involved. On top of that we need to find a means of feeding everyone involved in construction, as they are engaged in physically demanding labor instead of kicking back and occasionally hunting something to eat, which is how I imagine most monsters live. All of these actions would likely have to be performed simultaneously.If we're going to build anything, we're going to need a lot more than 7 monsters trying to call all the shots over a disorganized mob.
>>38230829Yup which is why new leadership reforms were our first change. Now to put them in place.
>>38227291>quickly someone post a picture of Max and pylo chilling on the floorso when the other Pillars show up, we tell them that Poly 1 was actually the Poly we brought with us to the Human world, who upon returning tried to absorb Poly 2 (now playing the part of the Poly we left at home) and overthrow the Overlord after using his powers to resist/cancel our Mind Magic (maybe with an artifact he stole in the Human world?). As for the White and Red spells lets just tell them our kick ass new staff gives us the power to use other colors besides Black if/when that comes up
>>38231016Indeed, we need to start from the bottom up to do this right, start with organizing the mob and everything else will follow.>>38231091>Bros for unlife
>>38231091Or we could just play up the genius overlord angel and say why would we limit ourselves to one type of magic when we could sue them all! MUAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA! After all we've had a lack of randumb like we had in the beginning of this quest.
>>38231158>Or we could just play up the genius overlord angel and say why would we limit ourselves to one type of magic when we could sue them allcause Lichs are only supposed to be able to use Black mana, only Humans can use all the colors. Plus the staff does raise our affinity with all colors so its not technically a lie
>>38231091We tell them;"You dickheads! You never told me Polys rebel sometimes! Look at my throne room! You fuckers better fix this by tomorrow!"
>>38231226We could lie that the staff does it, and see who is a tool enough to try and steal it.
>>38231226Well yeah but the point we're trying to drive home is that we are not like other liches, we are better, and a lot more crazy. We could always see we lack one color for a trump.
>>38231091so is that Poly taking on the form of Human Max and Lich Max giving his approval, Max needs a mount now>>38231242Nice way to open, make them think they fucked up before we tell them what happenedhow we fucked up>>38231276considering that staff is too useful to leave anywhere, and monsters still wouldn't be able to use the other colors with it I'd be game to see whose stupid enough to try>Purple Angel>Yellow Cat>some up and coming Lichoff the top of my head
>>38231322>Well yeah but the point we're trying to drive home is that we are not like other lichesjust gonna say, proving that Max isn't like other Liches is what lead Poly #1 to try and kill us, other monster may not be able to kill the overlord yet, but I'd rather no risk them getting ideas or another Poly thinking it can play Overlord after taking our place
>>38231351Well cat is a caster and Lixiver is fallen angel. You can bet any lich who here's our story will want it bad.
>>38231351>>38231428Cat is kinda an Overlord fangirl if her monologue about how she'll show the Insect Queen whose the Overlords favorite says anything, and Fallen Angel was pretty awestruck from our Dark Fear. Still the possibility of another Lich or really stupid monster thinking they can steal from the Overlord could help or hinder depending how we use the information about a magic staff that lets us cheat
>>38231559Can you imagine if the Hero hears of this how much he'll flip his shit?
>>38231559I was thinking about Cat's liking toward Max. She might not care about Max but only his position as overlord.or about her position as the "prettiest"
>>38231629that how I saw it too. She has no concept of individuality except in the barest terms. Lixiver respects us for our fake power and for the fact we kicked other liches ass with an inferior force. Queen liked that she thanked us, it gave her warm and fuzzies. Pylo is our bro now obviously and Zimbul enjoyed the field trip.
>>38231629>She might not care about Max but only his position as overlord.then we make her Max's favorite lap cat>>38231605Yes, also the Hero was a she wasn't she?
>>38231765No it was a he, with a four member harem
>>38231765No this is a JRPG hero is a guy, with a four member harem, amazon, elf, loli mage and someone who I forget.
>>38231803I don't care about the last one but the hero and the elf die. RIP WinLix.
>>38231605I'm still waiting for Max to meet the Hero as the Overlord, we did meet them for a moment when he came to the town we were at in Human form and he killed and ate Winlax"Well fancy meeting you here again Mr Hero. What? You mean you don't remember the day we met, now that's a shame. I remember the day the Overlord visited the Human world like it was yesterday. I rescued a small girl who was attacked by Humans on the way to a small village, helped the old healer woman, saved an adventurer after he was ambushed by a wandering Zimbil, and even routed an entire Bandit camp and convinced two of them to change their wicked ways and assist me in clearing out the rest of them. And what did you do that day oh "Great Hero?" Kill an innocent Winlax that never harmed a human, paraded his body before the masses after playing yourself up as a paragon of justice, and ATE him like some sort of beast. Its funny don't you think? That the ONE day the Overlord, the most evil of all evils, visits the very world the Hero claims to protect that I would do more good and perform more selfless acts of kindness than you would! Truly the Goddess' have a sense of humor wouldn't you say?"
>>38232176>Hero finally makes it to Alseit>Walks into the palace>No resistance>Not a single guard>Finds the overlord waiting on the throne>"Where are all the monsters? All the guards?">"I sent them away">"Sent them away why?>"So you you won't slaughter any more of them for fun, you fucking butcher.
>>38232414See he'd just kill us and not care. No we need to make him miss his boss fights(the pillars) so lacks the legendary tier gear than boss rush him all 7 of us at once.
>>38232444I was thinking of disassembling his harem. If they have even the basest human emotions, and intelligence, then they should realize that only one of them can win the hero's heart.
>>38232503Yeah that'd be a good start, Pick off the leavers in front of the others too. Especially the elf.
>>38232503That could work... We'll be the snake that whispered into Eve's ear.
>>38232543Then kicked Adam in the balls
>>38232714Yeah that'd be satisfying as hell though, we'd probably break our foot given our condition...
Just had a thought, so if the Poly we destroyed was only 1/10 of the whole, and the rest was either Poly #2 or what Poly #1 used to restrain Poly #2, then could new Poly use part of himself to replace the limbs Max lost? That way we'd have limbs and be able to repair ourselves without killing the last of the Black Mana healers, Poly could regen what was lost, and Max could morph parts of himself (unless they'd still be "part" of Poly and he'd need to make the parts change instead of binding them to Max's will or whatever)
>>38231803The last one was a catgirl because of course one of them would be.
>>38233301Nope Overlords get Catgirls. Miyu of Yellow is one.
>>38233161Cool idea, but Poly lost 9/10 of him, and half of what left after that. We should try self-heal first with the blue magic we learned>>38232788i was thinking about that. Maybe we could get some armor for ourselves.
>>38233366couldn't the Hero get one and claim its "Monster Taming" as long as he refereed to her as his "Pet?"
>>38233555Or make an enchantment for armor. unlimited mana reserves man.
>>38233555>but Poly lost 9/10 of himbut now that the 1/10 that rebelled is dead, everything is now our Poly's. Even the left over Dragon parts were reforming into Poly2 after we Dragon Slayer'ed the other Poly. At the very least he's at 8/10
>>38233555I remember something about Poly being able to reabsorb its biomass, but I'm not sure.
>>38233615This is all assumption we'll have to wait for Bello
yooo whos here?
>>38235944Anon here, reporting in
>>38235944for a little while longer.
>>38236136The Lich is now back to his throne room.Max is currently sitting down on his throne with the pillars next to him.Also, his body is completely healed up, but Sreleah had to rush in and heal his injuries. When Max casted Blue Heal on himself, it just injured him instead.Typical healing magic effect on undeads."Glorious battle, Overlord of Max. You have fought like a true warrior." said one of the pillars."Thanks, Jreet." Max nodded."Yes, you truly strong." The Jreet crossed his arms and closed his eyes, "I have always hated how Liches uses mind-magic to end their fights.""Myuu~! Overlord, I watched the entire thing! That final attack was just spectacular!""Bzzz. Quiet. We are in important business right now. Bzzz.""That's true. Let us pay our respects to our Overlord." said the Poly, and Max swore he could just hear the tone of the changeling's changing drastically already.'How is he holding up anyways? Wasn't he in a middle of seizure or something? Eh, I'll ask him later. Right now, this is important.'Yes, after he was healed, Max was informed of the results of his new hierarchy plan. Right now, he need to decide which candidates for the departments passed the test.>First go see the candidates...-Science Department-Military Department-(Fill in) Department (No finance, farming, education, etc. This is just here , in case, I'm missing something standard in a monster society.)
>>38236354>Magic DepartmentThat's one.
>>38236354>First go see the candidates...
>>38236354Espionage a thing Bello?
>>38236398Sadly, no. The monsters still don't feel a need in spying the humans and it wasn't mentioned in your plan.
>>38236354hoohoho this is good to know.These means UNHOLY magic will heal us...holy magic is our weakness.>>38236354Lets go see the magic department.
>>38236354How about "acquisitions?"
>>38236354>>First go see the candidates...>-Science Department>-Magic Department>-Research and Development?
>>38236354>We'll just do Science FirstThere were two candidates for the Head of Science Department.Oibbio of Change and Sloot of JunkThe procedure was a simple one. The candidates comes inside the throne and gives out their assets, while the Overlord and pillars give their opinions. Basically, it's like a job interview.Oibbio went up first.He was... something else.There was no clear way to define him.Glob of goo was hanging on it's back and he had many limbs just popping about.The Oibbio crawled towards the Lich and did it's best to give out a bow."Gurp- Hello. Overlord. I. Oibbio of Change.- Gurp- I. Change Monsters. -Gurp- I see features. I. Make Better. Wings. Mutation. Stronger. Better. Smarter. New monsters through Change. - Gurp-"Then the Sloot came.It looks like a big squirrel, with yellow fur standing on two legs. It also has this giant grin in it's face."Hiyaa! My greetings Overlord! I'm Sloot! I can create a lot of stuff! Like throwing stuff and cool stuff! People call my stuff junk, but trust me! It's good stuff!"He then proceeded to show you said stuff. There were items that sort of resemble machinery. Even a crude catapult was in the mix.>Question them first, ask opinions from the Pillars>Choose Oibbio>Choose Sloot>Choose both (resources will be split in half for both)
>>38236752>Image of Oibbio
>>38236354>Magic/science departmentI've always believed that in a world with magic, science and magic would be inseparable. Start with chemistry/alchemy, that will lay the basics for the 'hard' sciences, and provide things like improved metallurgy and what have you.
>>38236752>>Question them first, ask opinions from the PillarsHmm what do my wise and powerful feelty casul think? I'm curious.
>>38236752>>Choose both (resources will be split in half for both)These are both skill sets that will be invaluable to Alseit.
>>38236752>Question them first, ask opinions from the Pillars
>>38236752Have a science duel maybe?
>>38236752"Hmm what do my wise and powerful feelty casul think? I'm curious."The Jreet spoke out first. "I don't understand the Sloot's items! Why are these important?"Then the Insect Queen."One of the Insects greatest assets is their ability to adapt. However, I do enjoy the items presented."Lixiver."Monsters won't even be able to understand the machines. I mean, look at Jreet.""Is that a challenge, you Fallen?"Then Myu."Eww. I don't want to change. I, and many monsters, should be proud on who they are already.Then Zimb- Poly."I see both skills valuable to Alseit."
>>38236752>>38236878>>Choose both (resources will be split in half for both)tell them that any project they can complete together will earn extra resources for both, this encourages them to collaborate and allows them to work on their own stuff with added resources
>>38236878>>Choose both (resources will be split in half for both)Both approaches have their own merits, and in time your work will decide who gets the best supplies.
>>38236752...actually Sloot should be the head of the department of Engineering. He would be much more useful there.>Choose oibbioThis is more his thing, but tell Sloot we would be interested in seeing in the Department of Engineering.
>>38236954They are currently the same thing anon.............. Monsters ain't bright.
>>38236878>Then Myu.>"Eww. I don't want to change. I, and many monsters, should be proud on who they are already.tell them changes are voluntary, we're not gonna start lining up entire species for experiments
>>38236966Oh you got to be kidding me that fucker practically screams Chief Engineer Sloot head of the Department of Engineering.>>38236999Nah that is what creating new ones is for!Seriously though that fucker is gonna be so useful for bringing back extinct monsters and developing new monster kind....we need to keep him extra safe come to think of it. The humans would certainly make him a massive fucking priority if they found out about his existence.
>>38236954That's basically still choosing both.However, I guess it would make more sense of adding two factions in the Science Department.Biology and Engineering.>>38236878>Looks like everybody is falling asleep, so I'll end it hereAfter considering both of the monsters, Max has made up his decision."I have decided. The two of you will be both Science Department's Head. Oibbio will be focusing on the Biology and Sloot on Engineering." It wasn't until when both candidates displayed a sense of confusion that Max understood his folly.'They don't know what biology and engineering means...'"Nevermind. But, you two must work hard. Both approaches have their own merits, and in time your work will decide who gets the best supplies. However, collaboration between your work will earn extra resources."A sense of inspiration seem to coming out the Sloot.While the Oibbio... seemed inspired too? There was no clear way to tell with that monster.Max continued on his proclamation. "Very well. That ends this."The Sloot started jumping and screaming. "Yes! Yes! Thank you Overlord! I won't fail you!"Then the Oibbio joined in the celebration."-Gurp- Yes, I am truly grateful to work for you. -Gurp- I-I have always been a-amazed by your feats ever since the -Gurp- kappa..."Suddenly, Myu started laughing,"Oh my. It looks like this girl has fallen for the Overlord!"'Waits? What? That's a girl?'But before Max could ask, a thought from... Lixiver came.>"Overlord of Max. I have something to ask.">"...? Yes, what's wrong?"-Cont
>>38237148>"Well, I am very confused right now.">"What's that?">"Who are you?">"What?">"I have seen the battle. You have used White and Red mana and didn't use any mind-magic. Also, I have noticed the change in the Poly.">"Oh, is that so?"'Crap, could this possibly be bad?'>"Yes, also there seems to be a change with all the pillars and some of the monsters, like these candidates.">"What's that?">"Well... they seem to be gaining emotions, too. Normally, a Lich should notice this and end this, but you have not. So again I ask, who or what are you?"---Thank you for participating!Sadly, no side story post today.
>>38237191...great the fallen from heaven knows something is up.So how we gonna explain that we are a variant lich that was originally a human?
>>38237191Well it's a shame we aren't getting any NPC perspectives today, but thanks for running Bello. This was a fun thread.
>>38237191where are >Little girl>Bandit A stronk>Bandit B smert
