Previous: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/38497282/It's warm here, not a wet musty unpleasant warm, it's a kind of warm that's closer to a blanket left out to bask in the sun for a few hours. and Let, all I can feel is a cold emptiness, nothing tastes or looks right, it's all just so dull and lifeless, and I can't stop thinking about father, and the fate he doubtlessly met. But, it's not like I could've saved him, is it? I mean what was I supposed to do? Marcus has been telling me that he would've wanted this, but all I can think about is how much brighter everything would have been with him here.I shake my head sadly and take a bite from the stale bread and try to chew it, as Helga sits next to me, having a much easier time with it. She turns to me and frowns for a moment before smiling a forced smile."Hey, chipper up" She says with overly happy tone "I mean at least the weathers a lot nicer there than at home"I smile and then stop as I stare back out at the sea towards were my home used to be. I sigh.What do I do? ask Marcus why we haven't been able to write my cousin Find Nobi and ask him about the local politics Try to find a sweet shop to cheer up take a nap in my room Ask Mr fisher if he got any better tea ask helga something write in
>>38680832> ask Marcus why we haven't been able to write my cousin> ask helga somethingYou going back to stay with you dad? Also thanks for helping getting us out.
>>38680869This sounds good
>>38680832>>38680869That and> Try to find a sweet shop to cheer up
"Marcus" I ask turning to face the nearly completely armored form of my body guard "why is that we haven't sent a letter to my cousin yet?"He sigh, running a hand through his now scruffy looking red beard and stares at the town."Apparently there's a bit of a war or something going on here right now" He says taking a sip of water from a cracked tea cup "from what I've been able to gather the emperor of this place is on his last legs, and so all of his vasals decided it would be a wonderful idea to start killing eachother, so we're having a bit of trouble figuring out how to get the letter to him, because as you know""He lives in the capital" I sigh hanging my head "Well, at least we're safe here for the time being at least, right?"Marcus nods and goes back to looking menacing to everything that isn't me or Helga."Helga, are you going to go back to stay with you dad" I ask "also I forgot to thank you and him for getting us away from there""Back to what?" She asks "We'd probably be shot for helping ya, so it looks like we're just as stuck as you are Mi'lady""Oh, I'm sorry for dragging you into this" I say sadly, staring at the ground"Oh don't, you didn't do nothing" She says angrily "and if they would kill us for helping an innocent girl, fuck em, these folk seem a lot better than them anyways"What do I say? Thank you Helga SO Can you tell me a bit about this war of theirs? So can't we just go to the capital Why me I'm going to town, want to come with me write in
>>38681264> Thank you Helga> I'm going to town, want to come with me
>>38681264> Thank you Helga> So Can you tell me a bit about this war of theirs?> I'm going to town, want to come with me
>>38681264> Thank you Helga> SO Can you tell me a bit about this war of theirs?No going to town until we know what's going on. Going in blind on assumptions is what got our uncles caught.
>>38681264> Thank you Helga> SO Can you tell me a bit about this war of theirs?> I'm going to town, want to come with me
"Thank you Helga, I don't know what I'd do without you" I say smiling happily, my friend is going to stay, well that's at least one good thing I guess "that means a lot to me""Don't mention it, Mi'lady, I live to serve" She says smiling smugly.I smirk and take a sip from some of my now cold tea."So do you know anything about this war of theirs?" I ask marcus as place my tea cup down "Because I'm a bit curious now""Well, the emperor is dying, so all of his warlords decide they want a try at the whole ruling thing" He says "it seems like there are a total of seven armies fighting against eachother, and as luck would have it, two of them call this town their home or at least have some important people here, The Crimson fangs and Silver tails I believe""Oh" I say nodding "Well I'm going to town, I'll be back by lunch""Not without me you won't" Marcus says grabbing my shoulder as I get out of my chair "can't let you run off on your own""Okay" I say smiling "come helga, you're coming to then""Wait why do I have to go?" Helga asks"Don't question Our lady" Marcus says"Oh sorry, right away Mi'lady" Helga says noddingWhat do I do? go to a Sweet shop Wander around the docks That place smells good Is that a blacksmith? why is it so small?Wow so many buildings Ooh what's that? write in
>>38681704> Is that a blacksmith? why is it so small?>Wow so many buildings> Ooh what's that?
>>38681704> Is that a blacksmith? why is it so small?> Ooh what's that?
>>38681704> That place smells good> Is that a blacksmith? why is it so small?> Ooh what's that?
>>38681704> Ooh what's that?
>>38681704> Is that a blacksmith? why is it so small?We need a dagger, short sword or rapier so we can start practicing. I justify these weapons cause she will never be as strong as Marcus in the immediate future, but she could be as fast.> Ooh what's that?mystery box.
>>38681704> Is that a blacksmith? why is it so small?
>>38681803Well, not a dagger for main weapon (though sidearm wouldn't hurt), but a rapier seems a good call
>>38681818Or really any sword you can use a foil to mock up for. She's going to have to focus on speed and precision instead of strength and tenacity like Marcus does.
>>38681803>>38681818shortsword is probably better than rapier, considering that she seemed to have trained with something like a arming sword.
>>38681885Epee' Then? It actually has an edge but can pierce as well. It's also thin and light.
>>38681932Epee is not a real weapon.No I don't care.
I'm confused. Was this quest supposed to be a human protag forever in this setting or is this just a really long setup or something? I wouldn't really be against it, I guess, but at this point I can't even tell whether things are just slow or if I misunderstood what this quest actually was when I came into it.
>>38681967I believe the idea is still for us to become a monster of sorts somehow at some point. I think we kinda veered off course when we picked the human girl to play as at the start mind you
>>38681967Long setup, seems to be the answer in my eyes.We spend maybe too many threads in setting up the daily idyll before the hammer dropped, nd then we fled into a different continent requiring yet more setup. I assume if we would have been more reckless during our flight, we would already be a a monster.
>>38681962Well expecting her to use an arming sowrd with any skill is unlikely until she gets bigger, if at all. Short swords kinda demand dual wielding (bad idea) or a sheildm (her using one for long is no likely as monster are plenty strong enough for her to get overwhelmed and speed is more her friend than strength inthis setting)>>38681967It was meant to be a monster but Tg/ love playing little girls. We can become a monster or monster like with gifts hat man gives us, but first we gotta earn em. Til then we are a squishy and pleb tier human.
>>38681967I can't shake the feeling we actually avoided all the routes to transforming.If we would have went looking for our father, for example, probably something would have happened.>>38682040>Short swords kinda demand dual wieldingThey don't at all.
Reminder that humans are the most monstrous creatures of all.
>>38682040We've been trained to use a armingsword/longsword not a bloody rapier or light sword
>>38682062>They don't at all.Or a shield. Point is She needs to favor speed over strength right now, as only low to kid teir monsters(untrained ones at that) are not going to be able to overpower her with ease. The longer her poking stick is the faster it is the better for her it is.>>38682072But the effort to become truly monstrous take a lot of work, ask Raz.>>38682062>I can't shake the feeling we actually avoided all the routes to transforming.>If we would have went looking for our father, for example, probably something would have happened.HM said we'd likely have died.>>38682102>We've been trained to use a armingsword/longsword not a bloody rapier or light swordThose were explicitly play fights. We know about as much about heavy blades as light ones. Marcus indulged in letting us play fighting. We don't know how to any thing except the barest minimum of pointy end goes into thing.
>>38682040>Short swords kinda demand dual wieldingWhich is why no one ever regularly used shortswords for dual wielding, because they "demand" it.Sure thing.Not really. Shortswords were the dominant type of sword for a very long time, and no one dual wielded them. Having a shorter weapon also makes it easier for her to putt the little strength she has into thrusts to overcome light armor, against which she would be basically helpless with a lighter weapon.Rapiers only advantage would be reach, but but we are too weak to actually make use of that reach, since there would be basically no force behind an slash or thrust we make.
I lift my skirt up slightly to avoid tripping down the stairs leaning against the fisher's boat. The whole place smells a bit like salt. Some of the crew men are lazing around the ship nearby, keeping away the curious crew or villagers of the town and other prying eyes.I walk past them and everyone else, marcus and Helga walking besides me. We're given of extra walking room, because as soon as get close to them, they scurry off the second they see Marcus, muttering something or another to themselves.I shrug and look towards the town and...that's a lot of buildings, wow, I didn't realize how big this town was. I can see some old air coolers sticking out of the sides of some of them. Little balls of paper float in the air, filled with strange blue fire. I can hear music, shouting and cheering from hear, and can smell...I don't know what. I begin to walk towards the town.As I walk over there I notice a little hut on the beach, with a...a..thing working a forge? the walls of the open little building are covered with weapons and tools. I see something in a nice looking silver and purple robething that Nobi wore talking to the blacksmith who nods. I suddenly hear a large crash and marcus pushes me back, As a person comes flying past us, followed by shards of glass. I turn and see a building on the hill by the beach, one of its windows shattered, as some kind of song flows from within it. I can see a large red thing move away from the window. the man coughs and struggles to stand, but stumbles over with a groan."What a crude place" Marcus sighs."I don't know I like it" Helga says "Like I said, what a crude place" Marcus says with a chuckle"Well what do you think Mi'lady" Helga says sounding a bit crossWhat do I do? I like it I hate it, I want to go home Check out the building the man was thrown out of it BLACKSMITH I want to look for a sweet shop or something Try to find someplace to eat write in
>>38682163>Using rapier to slashkekPoint is she gets close she's dead.
>>38682206> BLACKSMITHRegarding weapon... Let's just ask Marcus what he thinks, he's probably knowledgeable enough to pick out a suitable one for us
>>38682206> I like it> BLACKSMITH>>38682225Point, is if you are small, you can't avoid getting close if you want to kill someone with a melee weapon.
>>38682206> BLACKSMITH>>38682225There is no reason to limit yourself in the use of your weapon. Sometimes you come to a situation where you slash with a rapier.
>>38682206> I like it> BLACKSMITHLet Marcus pick your weapon, he knows you really well since you know bodyguard and all.
>>38682206> I like it> I want to look for a sweet shop or something
>>38682206> I like it> BLACKSMITH
>>38682206> BLACKSMITH> I like it
We're in not-Asia. Katana or bust.>>38682206> It's... different.> Check out the building the man was thrown out of it
We are in NotAsia. Why not get a naginata for women? Pretty much a true and proven weapon for our purpose.
>>38682206> BLACKSMITH>It's different......
>>38682436That, actually makes more sense then the sword choices.Of course, I don't think we can even afford a weapon right now, but in theory its a good idea.
>>38682436I'm down for moving onto a naginata when we get the training and money to make use of and acquire one
"Well I like it so far" I say "I mean it isn't home, but it's better than nothing isn't it?""As you say Mi'lady" Helga says nodding.Marcus remains silent, staring aggressively at anyone who walks past him. I shake my head and look back towards the blacksmith, when I suddenly hear the cleaver I took from home clinking around with my books. You know, I don't think a meat cleaver is the best thing to use for self defense, I mean I could at least see if they're any thing I can use there.I begin to walk down a rickety ladder leading to the beach carefully, lifting up my skirt so I don't trip as I go down. I end up having to still hold it up so it doesn't get covered in sand as I walk up to the blacksmith.As I get closer I see that the blacksmith is a...Whu..WHY DOES IT HAVE SO MANY EYES?! THEY'RE EVERYWHERE EW EW EW EW. I shake my head and try to compose myself as I puff my chest out and try to walk like a proper lady. I nearly trip and the thing in the robes turns around and looks at me, it's long black hair blowing on the wind. It's wearing a mask that covers its face entirely, it's a light blue color and has "ears" on the top of it. The thing tilts its head, its eyes staring at me for a moment, before it giggles a very human sounding giggle and turns back to the blacksmith.What do I do? Ask the black smith his prices Demand a weapon Bow are..are you a noble of some sort?wait for the thing in the mask to leave write in
>>38682645> BowWe learned manners from Nobi!> are..are you a noble of some sort?> Ask the black smith his prices

>>38682645> Bow> are..are you a noble of some sort?> Ask the black smith his prices
>>38682645 Ask the black smith his prices are..are you a noble of some sort?I'm thinking we go for a rapier, its nice and light and would allow decent stabbing ability, lets face it, we wont have strength going for us so we should rely on parrying and speed for our advantage, plus rapiers are very noble.
>>38682645 Bow Ask the black smith his prices write inBargain for a weapon
>>38682645> Bow> are..are you a noble of some sort?>wait for the thing in the mask to leave> Ask the black smith his prices>>38682728>so we should rely on parrying>no strength>should rely on parryingAlso, no. A rapier is a terrible weapon for a young girl, also, why use a rapier if we are in NotAsia.
>>38682782Because a katana folded a thousand times filthy gaijan go home is cliche as fuck.
>>38682839>katana>Not proper female warrior weapons like a tanto or a naginataIgnorant whitu piggu
>>38682839A rapier doesn't fit into the local culture, and I see no reason why you think katana is our only other option, especially considering until now mostly shortswords and naginata were talked about.
I try to ignore the heat coming from the small building, as it doesn't seem the owner has a air cooler of any kind in there, which is a shame since I thought everyone had them. I frown and then remember What Nobi the bucketheaded farmer told me about being polite. I bite my lip and walk over to the thing with the mask and tap it on the shoulder, almost having to get on my toes to do so. It turns and faces me, it's eyes looking bored as it looks down at me. I feel a chill go down my spine and I quickly bow as Nobi taught me to. I look up and see it bowing slightly.I stare at it, smiling slightly as it looks down at me with an amused look in it's eyes."My my, a foreigner who has some manners" it says, and I quickly realize that I still can't tell if it's a boy or girl from its voice "isn't this a pleasant surprise""Are...are you a noble of some kind?" I ask"Oh of a kind, though others would say I am not" It says "and from the way you hold yourself I am to assume you're one as well?""She is Lady Crawlby, the last of her house" Marcus says."Oh I think I've heard that name before" it says, its eyes making it look like it's smiling underneath its mask."Her house was destroyed a week or so ago" He says"Oh it is always a shame to lose family, you have my condolences, Crawlby" It says nodding its head "Tha..thank you?" I say a bit confused "Well, if you ever wish to return to your old way of life, my clan may be of some help to you" It says bowing slightly before walking off "Goodday, may it be long and fruitful""Weren't going to buy something?" the black smith groans"No no, we'll send another to finish the deal latter" mask say chuckling.The black smith shakes its...um...head? and then turns towards me, and smiles, revealing its tombstone like teeth."So you're a noble then" It says trying to sound polite "Oh I am honored to have you at my Huuumble little store, feel free to look around"cont
>>38683079"What are your prices exactly" I ask pushing my fingers together"Oh not much at all, unless you want something good" it says smiling greedily.I look behind him and see the various weapons... most of them look strange to me, I don't think I could name most of them."I don't think I have that much money anymore" I say sadly as I looked at the scrawled on prices.It rubs its...eyes and smiles again"Well maybe we can come to some other kind of deal" It says looking at me "I imagine it would fetch a good price""What would" I say as Marcus steps in front me, his hand on his sword."The dress, the dress!!" the thing shouts backing away from marcus "foreign materials sell well here, very well, that's all I was saying"Marcus snorts and doesn't move his hand from the blade's hilt What do I do? But this is my only dress I don't think I'll be doing business with you today, sorry fine... turn around and go check out the building where the man was thrown from Wander around town looking for <what> write in
>>38683224If we have other clothes somewhere, or can borrow something from Helga.> fine...
>>38683224> But this is my only dressDo we have any other clothes? If we do, I guess we may as well switch and get a weapon. If not, we could presumably buy some foreign ones cheaply..?>Fine
>>38683224> But this is my only dress> fine...
>>38683224 I don't think I'll be doing business with you today, sorry turn around and go check out the building where the man was thrown from
>>38683224 fine...Remember we're just noble by name, we need to get use to the poor life.  write inLet the blacksmith know he has to throw in cloths for the deal to happen. turn around and go check out the building where the man was thrown from
"You will include a replacement set of clothes for mi'lady, right?" Marcus asks, his voice sounding cold and almost deadly."Well I guess if she could afford to I co...I MEAN YES, OF COURSE" The thing says most of its eyes closing as Marcus glares at it "please don't hurt me""Not rags, actual clothing, you understand" Marcus says smiling, The thing nods "good""F..fine" I say hanging my head, this was my last dress from home to, I'm going to miss I think, but I need something better than a sword to keep myself safe"Oh wonderful" the thing says laughing "there's a fitting room in the back, feel free to use that if you're a bit shy"I nod and walk past the thing, Marcus and Helga following after me. I open the...How do..open the..um..Oh it slides oh, I feel a bit foolish now. I walk in and look around. Suddenly I see the clothes slowly lower from the ceiling from a string. they drop in front of me. I pick them up.They look like what Nobi was wearing, but a light blue with various flowers on it, most of them are pink or white, it actually feels really nice. I sigh and with some difficulty manage to get my dress of, and put on the other thing.It's a bit to big, but my arms fit through the sleeves, so that's something I guess. I walk out and hand the thing my clothes. Helga giggles and Marcus stares at her."It..it looks nice on you Amelia" Helga says smiling.Marcus smiles."Yes, this should pay for the costs of one of my products" the thing laughs.I turn to the wall of weapons.Which do I pick? that's an odd looking sword is that a scythe on a chain? somekind of spear? but the heads a bit too big Wow, that club is bigger than me? I think that's a dagger a fan? why is there a fan A...metal whip? Custom order

So, quick question, are we wearing a japanese style outfit or a chinese one? Or neither, just an asiany feeling one?

>>38683799Kimono is the closest thing to it I think
>>38683675> that's an odd looking sword
>>38683836How relevant is this?
>>38683884Thats not a kimono.
>>38683918Technically it is a "kimono" in the sense of general clothing, not really what you would mean if you say it though, since it includes a hakama.
That's an odd looking spear, its head is to big for its body. I stare at it and walk closer. It's deffinetly taller than I am, but I think I could use it if I tried, not sure I'd be good with it though. The handle of it looks like it's made of some kind of black wood, with a bit of metal on the end with images of fish carved into it. the Head is designed to look like a wave, and looks like it has been polished to a shine. On the metal fish part are two long tassels of blue cloth, frayed near the end."Ah, I've seen that's caught your eye" The thing says "One of my best works, truly""Hmm" Marcus says "are you sure you want that one Amelia, I mean you've only trained with swords so far, It could be a bit of""Let the lady decide for her" The thing begins to say"Do not interrupt me when I am talking to Mi'lady" Marcus growls.The thing backs away from me and marcus with a huff.What do I do? I'll take it Say, where can I find the two clans around here? I'd like something else can you tell me where some other good shops are around here any sights I need to see I'll decide latter, come on Marcus  write in

>>38684109How about the part where we've exclusively trained with swords up to this point?
So... what's our overall plan here? Get friendly with a random noble faction and see if they can pass a letter on to our cousin?

>>38684240>We were trained the fundamentals of sword handlingThere is no such thing. Usage of a armed sword is so completly different from how you use a katana that trying to treat it the same would be downright detrimental.
>>38684240Dude, a katana, is a one-and-half handed sword. Its meant for heavy slashes.Something that requires strength. Something we don't have.
>>38684279Who says it's a katana anyways and if so can't we just special request a different sword....
>>38684259The spear gives as a much longer reach than a sword which is pretty important for the whole not getting hit thing. It's also a two handed weapon so we can make more use of our arms considering we don't have the strength to use a shield.There are several good reasons for using a spear over a sword with this character.
>>38684313> that's an odd looking swordGee, I wonder what it could be.Also, we've been play-fighting with a sword, a sword is not a good weapon for a young girl for a actual fight. Its better we learn to use a weapon we can actually make proper competitive use of.
I stare at it again, I mean it doesn't look all that bad, certainly better than my cleaver at least, and since Marcus only has one real sword this is my only real option unless I want to leave my dear friend fighting with a wooden stick and I really don't want to risk losing Marcus along with everything else."I'll take it" I sigh The thing nods and brings it down to me carefully as Marcus watches him. I don't think this actually a spear, now that I think on it, since the head doesn't look like any spear I've ever had really.*Naginata: Nameless. Acquired" I hold it and feel my legs tremble slightly, I move it around slightly, seems to be well balanced at least, though I think I'll need to get used to it a bit, and if I can't, well I still have the cleaver so it's not like I'm left with this alone. And I have Marcus, so It's not like I should really worry about any of this and...oh well."Um..could you tell me about the two clans who're around here?" I ask"The crimson fangs and silver tails?" it asks "What do you want to know?""What are they like?" I ask"Why do you want to know something like that?" He asks"just curious, I mean I like knowing as much as I can" I say smiling."The Crimson fangs are mostly Oni, headed by the bonechewer tribe, they like solving problems with violence, but from what I hear they're very loyal to eachother, good allies, terrible enemies, Apparently their lord used to control the emperor's armies before all this went down, but who knows if that's true" He says "the silver tails are...fox spirits from what I'v heard, they don't like taking their masks off in public so what do I know, Now while they may put on a friendly face to the public and always act polite , but I've heard rumors of them being just a bunch of Assassins, hell even heard they're the one's killing the emperor, and as for how they treat one another, I don't know, no one does, real secretive bunch" cont
>>38684434"Oh, well thank you for telling me" I say smiling "that'll make things a bit easier I think""Oh, and they fucking hate eachother" it says laughing "they were the first two to go for eachothers throats and they haven't stopped biting since then, I think they'll keep going until one of them is gone from this world""Oh" I say the thing nods and goes back to working.What do i do? ask it where I could find them can I practice with this? 1d20Where could I find them What are you?

Rolled 6 (1d20)Soo... Thoughts on our preferred clan? The oni's certainly seem more approachable but will probably be less well mannered etcThe foxes sound like they would be most capable of safely delivering a letter to our cousin if that's our objective but they're probably want something in return.
>>38684531>>38684535>>38684539Nice rolls anons
>>38684628Oni or bust.I'd rather not or first allies would be people we can't trust.
>>38684643Best of five you gibbering cretin.
>>38684628I like the foxes
>>38684643Best of five anon.>>38684628How about we get good first? To get in with them we need have something they want whether it be skill, goods, money, etc. Marcus might be able to get in but I doubt we or Helga could. Additionally the city is likely to explode before we get in with either of them according to our luck.
>>38684628I prefer Oni, seem more approachable for us currently.But considering /tg/s boner for Kitsune...
>>38684628Oni.Never trust foxs
>>38684671Well.. that's the thing. Do we actually want to just jump in and try to pick an allegiance in the middle of the civil war we arrived in?"Got nothing better to do, may as well. Passes the time." approach?I figure there's no real pressing reason to get involved beyond trying to get a letter sent at this stage, unless we decide we need to regain our nobleness and earning a living as a soldier is one way to start.>>38684694To be fair /tg/ has an equally large boner for oni's. I'd say oni's were the obvious choice here if it wasn't for the fact that they tend to use clubs and stuff and thus probably aren't as useful for learning to use our naginata as the foxies who I'd assume focus on more dexterous fighting styles.
>>38684748>has an equally large boner for oni'sReally? I never noticed that being a thing. I only see "muh fluffy tail".I don't think we are married to the katana, if we actually become a Oni, we can still change our weapon. And its not like the naginata is a high dexterity weapon, its just long and good to use for someone with little strength, but you don't move a lot with it like you would with a dagger or whatever.
>>38684748I say stay out of it until we can at least half at an amateur level. Otherwise we'd be a drain of resources. Marcus is good but I doubt he'd be able to carry all 3 of our weights in values for the factions. They'd either tell us to get lost(oni) or make us disappear and blame their enemies to keep Marcus in line (kitsune)
>>38684748>aren't as useful for learning to use our naginata as the foxies who I'd assume focus on more dexterous fighting stylesNaginata aren't really "dexterous" weapons, I don't think the foxes are better for training with it.Not to mention I don't think we should base this choice on our weapon.>>38684748>Do we actually want to just jump in and try to pick an allegiance in the middle of the civil war we arrived in?I see no reason to just pick sides right now, but since they hate eachother, its better to start thinking about who would be better for us.
Lets be honest, for the sake of everyone we should stay neutral, as if we don't we are going to end up in a MASSIVE ass shit storm in this thread, by those who like fluffy tails and those who like oni, and it wont end well. So whatcha'll say, temporary neutrality pact?
"Uh could I practice with this somewhere?" I ask the blacksmith thing"In the back" it grunts"Thank you" I say nodding as I walk and try to get used to my clothes.I walk out behind the shop and find five dummies made from sticks and heavily repaired bags filled with something.I hand my book bag to Helga, who keeps staring at my new...uh..thing. Marcus stands next to her, his arms crossed and his eyes looking like he's training me again.I take a deep breath and take a second to figure how to wield this thing. I move my hands up and down it's hilt, trying to find the right place to put them...this feels right here, I think I give it a test swing. Yeah that felt right or at least not bad.I stare at the dummy and enter a stance. I take a breath and stab it forward, some white stuff flowing out of the cut in the bag, I pull it back, and swing it at one of the bags on the arm, cutting it and spilling more of the ...whatever that is on to the sand.I keep thrusting and swiping with it, trying to get a feel for it while I swing it again and again."Marcus, what do you think of the clans so far?" I ask"The fangs, well, at least they won't stab us in the back" He says shrugging "as for the tails, well the one we met had a noble air about...it? but I don't know, I don't trust anyone who could be an assassin""Oh" I say nodding as I continue to try and figure out how to use this "What about you Helga?""I..don't know, I mean I don't really care much about them anyways" She says shrugging.'"Amelia, how does that...thing feel?" Marcus asks"Good, it's actually quite easy to use" I say "I thought I'd mess up a lot more with it""Good" He says nodding "though I will admit I thought the same""Marcus!" I whineHe laughs as a wind blows across the waves and onto the sandsWhat do I do? Ask him somethingExplore town 1d20 want to try it Ask Helga something Send Helga back to the ship write in
>>38684936At least until Marcus trains us until the civil war forces our hand yeah. Besides if we want trouble I'm sure we can find it in this place.
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>38684936I think you are being a bit too paranoid there.I think we should stay out of it because its no good picking side in a civil war for no particular reason, but thats pretty much the only reason.>>38684953>Explore town 1d20> Ask Helga something>Does she want a weapon too?
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>38684953>Explore town 1d20> want to try it
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>38684953>Explore town 1d20
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>38684953> Ask him somethingThink we can find something for gold without joining either side? I want to get a feel for each side more before we join either one.> want to try it?>Explore town 1d20
>>38685006Sounds good>>38684936>shitstormI don't really think it's leaning that way considering I think I was the only person putting forward arguments for the foxies and that was largely just food for thought.
>>38685006There are seven sides in said civil war, just remember that
>>38685017> Try to find someplace to eat
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>38684953>Explore town 1d20> want to try it
>>38684628Is this really a question?
>>38684936I agree, staying neutral for now is more safe maybe as we progress we take over one of the clans?
>>38685117>maybe as we progress we take over one of the clansLets not get ahead of ourselves here.
>>38685129I know, I'll stop doing that. Can't wait to see what the other clans consist of.
>>38685117I'd just like to say that neutrality can hurt us just as bad if not worse then picking a side.That being said I think we should gather some information first, but not wait forever to make a decision.
>>38684657The only thing worse then having assassins as allies is not having assassins as allies.
"Do you want to try it Marcus?" I ask him, Smiling as I hold out my new weapon, it's actually quite pretty, a lot prettier than the cleaver at least."No" He says shaking his head "Besides, I prefer swords to whatever that is, I'd just end up wasting my time with it""Oh" I say "Well if you ever want to just ask""I'll keep that in mind Mi'lady" He says smiling happily"How can you swing that thing?" Helga asks"It isn't that heavy you know, Helga" I say smiling"Well it looks heavy" She says "though I do have to admit the look suits you"I smile happily, and helga smiles back."Come on, I want to look around the town" I say happily as I rest the thing on my shoulder as I walk into the town proper. I don't know what any of this stuff means, or what any of these monsters are, I see things with a singular eye with paunch stomachs and boney limbs. Spiders with pale people sticking out of them climbing along the walls, red skinned things with long noses carrying around mans and looking a bit cross at everything around them.My head gets a bit fuzzy from all the smells and heat, but I manage to keep focus.I see a few odd things as I walk along, A few things and people staring at me as I go.Which do I pay attention to? A shop grilling strange long fish things A shop selling maskA dark alley way that is strangely devoid of life and feels cold three masked and robe figures dragging off a beaten oni who looks a bit smaller than the average one A wall being broken down by an Oni who seems a good deal taller than the normal sized ones according to my books

I walk through the street, smiling as I become enthralled by all the sights around me. the singing, the music being played along the street, the strange clothes and smells around me. This place is a lot more alive then centil was the few times I left the castle, not to mention a lot more colorful, oh it's just so beautiful...I ..I feel a chill go down my spine as I suddenly hear silence and turn, seeing an alley way strewn with trash, cobwebs and shadows. A few old Air cools hang in the air in it and I realize that there's no life around here, like everything is avoiding it. I take a step towards it as my stomach begins to twist and turn, like the times I've met the man in the hat. I take a step into the alley way and almost retch as I smell a mixture of ash and blood. I take a step back from it, my legs trembling. I ...I need to get of here, I need to run away from what's ever inside there, I..I can't go in there.what do I do? try to go in to the alley *most likely run away* go to some place to eat I hear screaming?go back to the ship find a kind of shop Have fun write in
Wait a second! What if the clan we pick decides what monstergirl we become?
>>38685648> I hear screaming?This place a demon gate location?>>38685667Think it'll be hat man's "gifts" that change us. probably.
>>38685648> I hear screaming?>>38685667I think most assume thats the case, although I personally doubt it.
>>38685648> try to go in to the alley *most likely run away*
>>38685648> I hear screaming?
>>38685682>Think it'll be hat man's "gifts" that change us. probably.Those two things are not mutually exclusive.
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>38685648> try to go in to the alley *most likely run away*Bet the alley has a Hell Door in it.
>>38685648> try to go in to the alley *most likely run away*> Have fun
>>38685648> I hear screaming?> find a kind of shop> Have fun
>>38685689I.. actually I hadn't really considered it.
>>38685727>Those two things are not mutually exclusive.Usually lots of magic, a life spent hunting monsters, or witnessing untold horrors to change. I doubt us joining any clan would change especially considering the effort it'd involve. Hatman's gifts are more likely as he's a proto-angel/nephilim thing.
>>38685648 try to go in to the alley *most likely run away*
>>38685785Hatman could chose to give us a fox gem if we go with the kitsune.
>>38685648> try to go in to the alley *most likely run away*If we run it will work out like we chose the other options, but if we succeed...
>>38685826>Hatman could chose to give us a fox gem if we go with the kitsune.Or an Oni horn, or dragon scales or anything else he has on hand/think would be interesting/good for a laugh. Joining gives us no guarantee on what we'll change into, if at all.
>>38685858>Missing the CoC reference.
You guys do know that Amelia has the Pure of Heart trait, right? So she might actually end up going angel if she doesn't accept gifts from Hatman.>inb4 "but angels and demons are busted!!!"Nah. If they aren't mainlining souls then they're on the stronger side but they don't have the ridiculous growth rates by default. And I don't think we'd be having Amelia scarf souls like Raz did.
>>38685878What does call of Cthulhu have to do with this?I got just ignored it.>>38685882We'll see. She'd have to be a demi-angel like Lil was a demi-demon first. Leveling to even that would take forever if HM was smart.
>>38685882Hm.. If we ascended wouldn't that stop us interfering with mortal affairs though? Unless we become a saint or something I guess
>>38685858>Implying hatman's gift isn't going to be a hat.
>>38685986Like I said whatever he thinks would be funniest/best for his machinations.
No, I can do this, I'm not going to be scared away from something I can't even see, I need to be strong, for dad. I need to be strong for myself, I need to be brave, I need to brave, what use am I If I'm just a cowardly little girl, I need to be as brave as knight. I bite my lip and turn around, my legs slowly moving towards the alley way as I try and keep myself calm as everyone of my senses scream and tell me to turn tail and run away crying in terror.I step into the alleyway and I begin to see the world drain of life, color, noise, movement. I can't move. for a second a see a door made of metal infront of me, covered in bloody hand prints and chains, the next second its gone and the color in the world is backI blink for a second, before I take a step back, shaking my head as I stare at the shadows. Not going in there, not going in there, that wasn't normal, and I really don't want to see what else is down there so I'm just going to forget this now and go away and hope I don't find it againYeah, yeah that sounds like a good idea<How did you see that, hmm well, you're a very interesting mortal, aren't you?>Oh no not the voice again, I thought it had left me alone."Amelia, Are you all right?" Helga asks grabbing my arm "Huh?' I say shaking my head to try and focus again"You're covered in sweat" She says "but you weren't a second ago...do you feel alright, like maybe you were cursed or something""I'm fine Helga'" I say smiling "I just thought I saw something there for a second""Oh, well just try to not get cursed" She says nodding"GRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH" I hear a voice bellow in pain.Marcus grabs his blade and looks around"That sounded close" he says frowning as he puts his blade back after a second of thought.What do I do? Look for the source of the scream Go back to the shipOoh, those trees are pink, I like pink things Oh that's a weird looking shop are they looking at me? Food write in
>>38685882>So she might actually end up going angel if she doesn't accept gifts from Hatman.Are we talking human with wings slapped on, book of revelations type of angel that is concentric circles covered in eyeballs?
>>38686039> Look for the source of the scream
>>38686044It varies, but the stronger the angel the rapetastic to reality they are.
>>38686044I'm guessing you didn't read YMQ?Angels can be anything from a regular human that glows or has wings to a giant mass of living energy that drives people mad. If the angel started out as an ascended human, they'll probably look fairly human if they're new but as time goes on they'd look more and more BoR (if they picked the trait upgrades instead of the power upgrades).
>>38686039>Ooh, those trees are pink, I like pink things
>>38686039> Look for the source of the scream> Ooh, those trees are pink, I like pink things> Oh that's a weird looking shop
>>38686039 Look for the source of the scream
>>38686120So long as we don't turn into a hippie I am fine.Angel of death a best.
>>38686282Well it takes a long while to get to demi angel and a even longer time to get full blown, even then you aren't much tougher than mid tier monsters till you level evolve once or twice. Going angel would be a grind and a half.
>>38686120Not really trying to turn to an angel.
>>38686282Death is an angel in this setting. War, Famine, Death, and Pestilence are all angels here.>>38686372I could deal. The main problem with YMQ was that the mc overleveled so ridiculously fast.
I stop and look around, it doesn't look like anyones being attacked around here, and that scream sounded like someone who was in a terrible pain, and it's not like I could even help them if I did seem them anyways."GRAAAAH!!!!" the voice screams again.Helga yelps and hides behind Marcus, who moves his hand back away from his blade with a sigh and shake his head. Okay, I think I heard where it came from this time, it came from the way we were walking away from. I Bite my tongue. I mean I can't just let someone get killed can I? I mean It wouldn't be right to not at least try and help him right...and besides I have Marcus with me, what could go wrong. I bite my tongue, and slowly find myself making my legs move towards the source of the scream"Mi'lady, where are you going?" Marcus asksI don't say anything, because If I opened my mouth I'd scream"Graaah!" Down there...I walk through an alley and find a small clearing of overgrown green grass with a single limply hanging tree. And a ramshackle house."GRAAAAAAAAAAH!!"this has to be it."Oh, I get it now Amelia" Marcus laughs"C..can we go back to the ship?" Helga whimpersWhat do I do? leave Marcus break down the door open the door peak through the windows write in
Is an angel of vengeance a thing? I mean our MC lost her father and home at a young age....
>>38686479> peak through the windows> open the door
>>38686479> peak through the windows
>>38686484You do realize how hard it would be to turn into an angel right. Like you'd have to die to even do it, unless you some how figure out how to do the opposite of what happened to raz.
>>38686484Vengeance goes too close to demon and getting to angel is balls in a blender hard to do.
>>38686479> Marcus break down the door
>>38686479 peak through the windows
>>38686514>>38686531Well I'm glad it's hard, wasn't trying to become an angel just throwing ideas since anon mentioned it.
>>38686514Wasn't Lil starting to turn into an angel after a couple months of murderhoboing monsters?
I take a deep breath. This has to be the place the screaming is coming from, I know it is, oh lights why am doing this? this is a real bad Idea I mean how do I know what's in there I can't just...but someone is getting hurt in there and I can't let them get hurt, what kind of knight...no what kind of person would I be if I let someone get hurt when I could've stopped it and saved them. I take a deep breath and puff my chest out."Amelia" Marcus says"Don't stop me Marcus" I say trying to sound like he does, all I do is make him chuckle and Helga to smirk and giggle."I wasn't, just don't do anything rash" He says "Okay?""Okay" I say nodding.I know what I'll do, I'll peak into a window, just to make sure it isn't something else, like someone taking a really hot bath. I slowly creep towards the building and stand on my toes, and peak into the window.There's only one room, and I see an Oni tied to a chair, beaten, bruised and bleeding. My heart falls as I recognize this one, the two yellowed horns, the almost tooth sized tusks, and of course the beatings. He's a very small oni, probably the runt of his family.Behind him I see two people wearing the same masks as the person from before. and in front of him, I see another, holding a crude looking hammer."P..please" the oni stummers "Not my horns, anything but my horns, I'm sorry, I'm sorry""Sorry?" the one with the hammer asks "How can an Oni be sorry when he dared try and take one of our tails, I imagine you did that for some prestige, to be looked up to""I wasn't going for ya tail, I just tripped after I tried to hit ya" the oni says forcing one of its bruised eyes open "Honest, I wasn't trying to"*CRACK*"GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAH!: the oni screams and cries as the hammer strikes down on one of his horns, shattering it off completely "Nooooo...nobobobobobobob""Blubbering fool" the thing in the mask sighs as it raises the hammer again Wha..wha.dudu.wha? This is...horriblecont
>>38686643no... not really... In fact she was corrupted as hell from exposure.
>>38686778What do I do? Watch MARCUS!!! Cry out in terror Stop it make a noise to distract them write in
>>38686802> MARCUS!!!> Stop it
>>38686783That was a rhetorical question. She was turning into "something not a monster or a demon" (angel was more or less confirmed both in story and in meta) after her murderhoboing, and then we jammed demon blood down her mouth and fucked it up.
>>38686802> WatchThe cruel world, we must get use to it> write in, leave and wish him best of luckWe're trying to stay neutral remember.
>>38686802> make a noise to distract themDammit, I was hoping to avoid this conflict.
>>38686802> Stop it
>>38686916Well what did you think was screaming after an oni was dragged off a few blocks from the alley OF HELL
>>38686802> MARCUS!!!> Stop it>>38686916Should have joined me in appreciating pink things, then.
>>38686960Something weird and not bad?>>38686995I did.
What did the book say about oni horns?
>>38686960I thought it was the door itself. Sounded like it was coming from the direction of the door, not the opposite way, up until after we voted for it.
>>38687075They lose them they lose strength. Also if the lose them all they become girls. Holding their horns gives you power over them and ingesting their horns powdered strengthens you with a bit of their strength, I think.
>>38687109The path is clear. We wait until all the horns are gone and then swoop in and eat the powder before carrying away our new onigirl
"MARCUS" I cry out. The thing in the mask turns towards me and I see two tails like those of a fox unfurl from his coat."What?" He says before the oni kicks him in the chest "Gah, I thought you had him tied down!".I stumble from the window and begin to fall over. I close my eyes, and realize I didn't hit anything hard. I open them and see Marcus, his eyes cold and serious again. He helps me up and turns towards the door, frowning like he did when I learned about what Uncle Grigs and lucius were going to do.He's..He's walking to the door..Oh lights he's going to kill them, oh oh no. I take a deep breath and walk up to him. try to keep up as he quickly moves towards the door and nearly tears it off its hinges. The fox masked thing turns around, hammer in hand."Oh what do you have to do for some..." He says before he notices that Me and Marcus are armed "...Who are you""Crimson fangs?" one of them holding the oni down says"No, they're too well dressed for that lot" the other says"Well you can never be sure" the other saysWhat do I say? *Cry*What are you doing here STOP IT, can't you see he's scared Why yes we are Stop before he kills you!! Villains?! write in >>38687100Oh, sorry, I should've been more clear, terribly sorry

>>38687244Stop metagaming it.
>>38687156> Villains?!>What are you doing here
>>38687222Yes because obviously our character would do something like that!(SARCASM)
>>38687274They only know this because of a bookthat Amelia readand currently has on her
>>38687263>So we're crushing the horn in powder and pouring it to our tea to gain strength.Or We could either return it to the Oni to win his eternal friendship. or if he doesn't want it power up Marcus as we still have a long way to go in our training.
>>38687274It's not metagaming. We IC read that book and can IC decide we want to stall.

>>38687323>complains about metagaming>argues we should base our decision on testing out a mechanical traitI love how its once again proven "metagaming" is just a flismy way of saying "don't for what I don't like".
>>38687398>don't do what I don't likeGod its way too late.
>>38687398Not the "its metagaming" anon. You do have to admit it is pretty blatantly OOC as she's written up though.
>>38687434I would think she wouldn't act like it, but I can't really call it blatantly OOC, depending on how its done.
>>38687434Not entirely. We've lately been shown to be nice due to our quick friendship with Helga but don't forget our stone cold setting up of our uncles
>>38687398Funny we weren't even metagaming, I hope he realizes he's a faggot
Oh no, I know what there people are now, it's just like those stories Marcus used to tell me."VILLAINS?!" I Cry out in surprise as I realize I've come upon something even darker than I first realized.the other two masked things struggle to keep the hollering oni down, one of their masks getting cracked from his flailing fists."What in the" the one with the hammer says as Marcus grips his sword by his side "you don't sound like you're from around here, this guy attacked us first, we're just teaching him a lesson""Bullshit" Marcus growls "this is torture""Not our fault he was a tough bastard to take down" one of the others gasps as the oni squirms and frails as blood flows from his missing horn."What are you doing to him, can't you just let him off with a warning or something?" I ask them as I walk in front of Marcus, so he won't try and kill them, I hope."Oni's don't respect words, so as crude as this is" the mask thing says "but this is the only way they learn""But can't you see he's scared?!" I shout at them, feeling tears stream from my face "I mean just look at him!"The mask thing stares at me for a moment and looks back over his shoulder and looks at his hammer like he's about to toss it away."I'm sorry" He says sadly"But he attacked one of our business, I don't want to do this, but Mi'lord told me to, just get out of here, it's going to get messy""THEY'RE LYING I didn't mean it, I was just trying to hit them" the oni says "I just wanted brother to be proud of meee""then you shouldn't have attacked us dumbass" The mask thing growls "We've left you alone for months and then you do this WITHOUT CAUSE"Who do you think is in the right here? Oni Masked "Fox spirit" Neither of them write in
>>38687501> Neither of themObviously the Oni shouldn't have attacked them, but I think he got punished enough.
>>38687501> Neither of themSo, first off, that oni has already lied. He's gone from it being an accident to saying he was doing it for his brother's praise.Secondly, the foxes are renowned for deception so... They're probably lying too.To be honest my gut feeling is to side with the foxes though.
>>38687501> Neither of themBoth of your sides are acting like children, you should be leading your people and trying to unify this land. Instead you torture and pummel one another till war breaks out. You took one of his horns let him go, and trying to punch someone who's armed is just plain idiotic.
>>38687501> Neither of them>"I can understand punishing him for the attack, but now you have, and can let him go, he didn't even injure anyone as I understand it.."
>>38687501 Masked "Fox spirit">This seems to fit the MC style, especially with the uncle situation.
>>38687501> Neither of themThere are magical things such as scaling punishment and due process, you know, things that allow for people to not have massive fucking vendettas. I'd say this goes well outside of it.
>>38687579>There are magical things such as scaling punishment and due processThey probably don't have those right now, with the whole civil war going on, kinda fucks up the legal system.
>>38687619hence why they are so magical, they are like unicorns, they probably exist in this setting, but we've yet to see it so we might as well assume it doesn't.
>>38687501> Neither of them
>>38687501> Masked "Fox spirit"Best pick one side now.
>>38687501> Neither of themTell them both how stupid they are being
I feel angry, like my bloods on fire as I clench my new spear thing and take another step forward as the fox spirit with the hammer raises it above his head."ALL OF YOU ARE IMBECILES!!!" I shout angrily."Are you human?" The fox spirit asks "because I have never met one with as much guts as you""Nah, she's obviously something in disguise" one of the others say"I'm betting an oni" the other says"Nah, She'd have attacked us by now" the other sighs.The oni looks up dazed at the sudden loud noise."Both of you are wrong" I say "you shouldn't have attacked them for no good reason, and you are going to far with this"They stare at me for a moment, still in shock that."I'm betting tengu" The oni says nodding The other two turn to him and shake their heads."Our lord told us to punish him" the other one says slowly, like he's unsure of himself "we have to""You already have" I say "look you've taken a horn already, it would be needless cruelty to take the other one""Hmmph" the masked thing says "You know, you're probably right, taking another horn would just piss his family off even more, But if you ever walk anywhere near that store again, I'm taking the other horn, understand you red yokel""fine" the oni says "I'll leave that store alone, now would you kindly untie me""Do it yourself, I wasn't asked to baby sit you" He says "Come on Nati and Turna, I think we've earned a drink"The three masked figures walked past me, the shorter ones who appear to be girls now that I see them up close, seem to only have one tail, how odd.I turn back to the oni."T..thank you" He stutters "I'd have been done for if you didn't come in and talk some sense into those smug bastards""You caused all of this, you have no right to insult them" I say staring at him"But they are didn't ya hear them talk?" He says smiling"Well, maybe you'd make a good ruler after all" Marcus chuckles as he turns to walk away.cont
so... everyone was talking about powdered oni horn giving strength... would snorting it like cocaine allow it to work? Or would that just be stupid?
>>38687957We must find out for science!Worst thing comes to the worst, we find a hankerchief and try the regular way
>>38687881"W..wait..where are you going" The oni asks "I need some help still, I can barely move on my own, you aren't just going to leave me here, right?"What do I say? Well, you're strong right, can't you do it yourself Fine, guess it can't be helped  did you really attack them so your bigger brother would be proud?Is that going to regrow? Who said I was helping you *Evil action*What's your name? Ask him something write in
>>38687984> Well, you're strong right, can't you do it yourself
>>38687984> did you really attack them so your bigger brother would be proud?>Is that going to regrow?>"So I hear that consuming the powdered horn of an oni grants you their strength..."
>>38687957Probably a bad idea, If ony doesn't want it back we either drink it in a tea, or give it to Marcus to power him up.>>38687984>What's your name? did you really attack them so your bigger brother would be proud?Is that going to regrow? Fine, guess it can't be helped
>>38687984> Well, you're strong right, can't you do it yourself>What's your name?Kids gotta learn his lesson
>>>38687984 write in"For a price, I'm looking for someone, you wouldn't mind helping me right?"Lets take advantage of this situation
>>38687984> Well, you're strong right, can't you do it yourself>Is that going to regrow?>"So I hear that consuming the powdered horn of an oni grants you their strength..."
>>38687999>>38688036We already know It does anons. Don't take it from him unless he gives it freely. Less hut feeling and he'd still be positively disposed to us.
>>38688089I just wanna see his reaction to us saying it.
>>38688089Its a circumspect way of asking if its okay if we take the remnants, he kinda owes us something.
>>38688021I mean*"need someone to receive a letter"
>>38687984> did you really attack them so your bigger brother would be proud?> Is that going to regrow?>What's your name?>"So I hear that consuming the powdered horn of an oni grants you their strength..."Gotta mess with him a little.
>>38687984>Is that going to regrow?>What's your name?> Fine, guess it can't be helped
I've been thinking, and I find it very likely we'd either stroke ourselves out, give ourselves a heart attack, or just flat out die of system shock if we snorted oni horn, purely because it'd likely give us a dose of pure handwavium or whatever it uses to work.
>all these people not voting to crush his remaining horn, drink the powder and gain a handmaid...I'm not either because it doesn't quite feel appropriate but by gods am I sad about it... ;_;
>>38688271So what you're SAYING is that we snort it bit by bit in very small amounts to get the full effects effects of it without killing ourselves?
>>38688287He can still lose the other horn, I doubt this was the last time he did something stupid.We just have to wait.
>>38688317You could probably ""water"" it down with lactose or glucose to make it a less pure dosage to do exactly that but probably!
>>38688271More likely we get a fierce headache from clogging up our nasal cavities with bone powder.
>>38688371Its not any kind of bone powder, its MAGICAL bone powder! That makes the fierce headache a MAGICAL fierce headache!
>>38688271>find a new hallucinate drug>start a business of poaching oni horns>become kingpin
>>38688402I can't imagine hallucinogens would find a very large market in a country filled with civil war. People tend to prefer being alert in those kinda situations.
"Did you really attack them to make your brother proud?" I ask"Well what else was I supposed to do?" He asks "I mean he doesn't let me go out into the forests to hunt beasts, and the only other people besides us and them around here who only one gives two shits about is nearly nobody""Couldn't you have just snuck into the forest then?" I ask him"Huh, never thought about that" He laughs, blood still flowing down his already red face, from his horn, broken nearly exactly at the base."Is that going to regrow?" I ask staring at where his horn used to behe looks up and frowns, his mouth opening slightly to show all of his really sharp and dangerous looking teeth."No it isn't" He says "But hey, at least I got to keep my other horn in more than one way, all because ya came in here with your golden heart, You're a good human if I've met one""Is it true that powdered oni horn gives you there power?" I ask"In...in a way" He says "I don't think many humans have taken it, or what that would do to them, maybe the liver eaters would know""Liver eaters?" I ask"Silver tails" He says "Though they deny it""Ah" I say "What's you're name anyways""Oh, Na'kal" HE says smiling "Na'kal Bonechewer, son of Bru'kal and Krak'ah, fourth son to be exact"Bonechewer, I think I've heard of that somewhere before....What did that gross thing say about the crimson fangs again..."They're headed by the bonechewer tribe""Oh" I say staring at the dumbly smiling oni in front of me "OH!!""So aren't ya gonna untie me or something human" He says "Also ya didn't tell me my name""Amelia Crawlby" I say bowing, cursing myself for forgetting again "And aren't you strong, can't you do it yourself?""Well I could, but my everything hurts right now" He groans"Mi'lady, what's taking so long in there?" I hear helga call out from outside
>>38688463What do I do? Freak out ask him if his dad is the head of the crimson fangs Fine nope good bye and good day to you sir say, how happy would they be if I helped you walk back? *leave* write in
>>38688449You'd think so, but often people prefer to just drown out the misery. Especially the parts of the population tht can't do shit about it anyway.>>38688489> *leave*> nope good bye and good day to you sir
>>38688489> Fine>"So uh... that horn of yours that you lost.. Is it any use to your or could I maybe perhaps slightly keep it?"> say, how happy would they be if I helped you walk back?
>>38688489> FineTake the horn if he leaves it behind if not I'm sure his good word will help us in the future.
>>38688526Hallucinogens often aren't a particularly good form of escape.
>>38688489> Fine>Call Makus to help him walkWe can't help him much anyway.>Mind if I keep that horn?
>>38688463 ask him if his dad is the head of the crimson fangsWe are in a unique position right now, a position to improve relations with the crimson fangs WITHOUT pissing everyone else off... lets take it.
>>38688489> Fine"Remember what I've done today friend." Smile, bow, then leave.
>>38688526It's a terrible idea to take hallucinations if your'e miserable.
>>38688637Also there is so much diversity in the minds of various different species and monsters that hallucinogens would almost certainly have varied effects, sometimes possibly dangerous ones in different circumstances. Also from what I got both sides are easily manipulated and follow a very set culture, they will take the initiative of whoever acts in charge, and attempt to fulfill that request or cultural requirement however possible, in this case by a stupid attack and then by only wrecking one of his horns because they felt they already did enough.
>>38688637>people who take drugs have terrible ideas>News at eleven.
>>38688718I'd take offence to that if it wasn't painfully clear you have no idea what you're talking about.
>>38688760Yeah sure, because no one miserable has ever taken hallucigenic drugs to fight of their misery, sure thing that you expert.
>>38688760I think your admission to taking drugs, kinda disqualifies your opinion on if drug users have terrible ideas or not.
"Do you mind if I keep the horn you lost today?" I ask"Ya know ya talk a bit like the silver tails, ya know" He says tilting his head "And I don't really care much of it, but they may want to do something with it, you never know, some of them are real set in the old ways, ya know""Fine" I say smiling as I walk up and try to undo his bindings "uh, Marcus"Marcus walks back in silently and cuts the ropes with his sword."Thank you Marcus" I say nodding"Just doing my job Mi'lady" He says smirking as he walks back out "What was she doing in there?" Helga ask sounding worried"Oh just being a good ol gentle soul... I hope" He says chucklingthe oni stands up and leans against me, getting a bit of blood on my new clothes."Sorry" He chuckles "couldn't stand"I sigh and begin to slowly walk out of the building, my arm hurting from all of the weight on it as I try to get him to walk on his own. Marcus sees my plight and wordlessly takes his other side. I sigh in relief as we walk into the street, some humans and a few monsters gasping in surprise as we walk down and follow Na'kal's pointed directions. He eventually leads us out of the town, and down through a little grove of those strange trees, to an odd looking building with a red fang painted on banners flying around it. It looks like some of the other buildings in town, but wider, fatter, bigger, and a bit dirtier. I also see several of those paper orbs and Air cooling machines.We walk up too the open door, which is round, never seen a round door before.As soon as we walk in, Onis both blue, red and the various shades of those colors stare at us, and drop what they're doing to get a look at Na'kal speaking in a language I don't know, or they're making it up."Brother!" Na'kal cries as I see a large oni with a man of wild black hair push his way through the crowd "Dra'kal, I was saved, I was saved"cont
>>38688978I'm confused. Did we keep the horn or did we leave it under the belief the foxes would get pissy with us taking it as if it belonged to them?
>>38688978The big oni stares down at me...he has to be at least nine feet tall, probably more. And he isn't wearing a shirt, just a black jacket with the red fang on it. His eyes flash quickly from joy to anger."Who did this to you?" He asks, sounding like a much gruffier marcus"I did it" He groans "What?" Dra'kal asks"I picked a fight when I shouldn't have" He says frowning "I'm sorry brother I nearly ruined everything"His older brother smiles. and then smacks him on the head, nearly pushing me and marcus to the ground with the force of it"IDIOT, I WAS WORRIED SICK OF YA" He shouts grabbing Na'kal up like an oversized doll "AND NOW I SEE THAT YA WENT AND PICKED A FIGHT WITH THE SILVER TAILS AND NEARLY BECAME MY SISTER, I MEAN DID YA WANT TA END UP LIKE ASHI?!"No" Na'kal says "I just wanted to make ya proud of me ya know""Well you should've waited until the truce Eventually broke" He says "which you probably quickened""Oh...Oh shit..ah sorry?" He says"Don't say sorry, you have nothing to apologize for" Dra'kal says "You may have gotten yourself beaten to a pulp, but hey, you at least manage to scare them off before they took both horns...Wait, you said you were saved right?"Na'kal nods as Dra'kal puts him down and walks up to Marcus and looks him up and down."Hmm, pretty big for a human" He says scratching the beard on his chin "no wonder you were able to save my little bro"Marcuse Smiles, holding back a giggle.What do I say? Actually it was me he saved him *say nothing* Hey can I keep his lost horn Wow, you're...you're HUGE*leave silently* write in
>>38689134> Actually it was me he saved him> Hey can I keep his lost horn, or is that rude? I'm sorry, I'm not from the region.
>>38689134> Wow, you're...you're HUGEThen we get asked who the fuck we are and why we're interrupting, then Na'kal tells him we saved him, etc
>>38689134> Actually it was me he saved himMarcus is my bodyguard and friend. I was the one who talked the silver tails out of removing Nak'als other horn though. I trust he'll be alright now that he's home?
>>38689134> Wow, you're...you're HUGEAt a minimum they'd appreciate us being impressed, at best we probably should be so might as well... also if we can act as a neutral mediator we can put ourself in an immensely powerful position.
>>38689134> Actually it was me he saved him>Puff out our cheeks in annoyance
>>38689134> Wow, you're...you're HUGE> Actually it was me he saved him> Hey can I keep his lost horn
>>38689134> Actually it was me he saved him> Hey can I keep his lost horn> Bow
>>38689134> Actually it was me he saved him
"Wow" I say staring up at the giant Oni "You're..You're HUGE!!"He turns to face me, his eyes looking bored as he stares down at me."Huh, is she you're daughter or something?" He asks pointing at me with his thumb."No" Marcus says "I'm just a friend of hers, we traveled here together""Oh a companion in battle, well she's a bit small, but then again all humans are I guess" He says shrugging "So tell me, how did you save my lil bro?""Oh no you misunderstand, I am Sir Marcus" He says bowing with a hand over his chest "the knight of blue roses, and Amelia Crawlby's body guard""Yeah Actually I'm the one who saved him" I say puffing my cheeks out slightly as Dra'kal looks back down at me "B...but you're so tiny" He says crouching down to look at me as all the Onis stare at us "How did you do it""I told them they were idiots and being needlessly mean" I say"And that worked?" He asks"I also pointed out one horn was punishment enough" I say "and speaking off horns, can Ikeep his lost one, I'm sorry if asking such a thing is rude, but I just got here so please forgive me if so""Sure" He drawls staring down at me "it's a bit odd, but I see nothing wrong with it, you saved him from losing his other so you can get both, sfar as I care, but you have to tell me your name, so I can tell all my clan of your deeds here today"What do I do? Tell him my name How do you join the clan Why do you hate the silver tails what would happen if I used this? Why aren't you wearing a shirt Don't bother I was only doing right write in
>>38689490> Tell him my name>Bow> Why do you hate the silver tails> what would happen if I used this?
>>38689490> Tell him my namebut> Don't bother I was only doing rightanyways do you know what would happen if I used this?Because the book I read was less than informative other than an "increase in strength"
>>38689490> Tell him my name> Why do you hate the silver tails
>>38689490> Tell him my name> Why do you hate the silver tails> what would happen if I used this?> Why aren't you wearing a shirtSoooo, are we going to just go around and make friends with all the clans?
>>38689490> Why do you hate the silver tails> what would happen if I used this?> Why aren't you wearing a shirtLets find out if this is some situation that is on par with a difference of political opinion or if its something on par with the sunni shi'ite dispute. If its the former we can be effective as a mediator, in the latter who the hell knows.
>>38689577>we unite the east and become Queen
>>38689490> Tell him my name> Don't bother I was only doing right> Why aren't you wearing a shirt
>>38689616>we unite the east and become EmpressftfyBut yeah, thats exactly what I was thinking.
>>38689677Oh, for some reason I thought the current ruler had been referred to as a king which I considered odd but that the counterpart would thus be queen.Thanks a lot, brain.
>>38689677Eh, I was thinking we basically become the middleman for negotiations, since we have no stake in these politics we can arguably serve as a go to for negotiations between groups, and possibly become a judge for who is actually at fault... Coincidentally this would allow us to twist our judgements and give our favor to whatever happens to serve our political agenda and be a major political powerhouse without even officially being in charge of anything (read as not having peasants storm your home to murder you again)
>>38689714Hm, could do.Either way I want to head back west with an army of mysterious eastern warriors and magic powers falling out of our ass and lay the pain on the peasant scum squatting in our mansion./
>>38689745You know, at this point all thats left for us back there is pain and death... Unless we decide to fuck over a certain QM again and get daemonic powers I don't see how it'll work out.
Guys we're a young girl, I doubt we will have the clout to do that at all in anywhere near the immediate future. We need to git gud before any of this is an issue.
>>38689772Its a longterm plan, obviously we won't be able to come back anytime soon.Maybe not even before the Epilogue but we need to return.
"Amelia Crawbly" I say bowing quickly.Dra'kal laughs loudly, causing me to blush and stand back upright quickly."Ah, yeah you're defiently the type for a bodyguard" He laughs "Ame'lia Cra'by""Amelia Crawlby" I say blushing as I clench my fists."I know, I'm just messin with ya" He laughs "Ahhh, well, Marcus and Amelia, you have my thanks""Why are you thanking me, I did nothing to help him at all?" Marcus asks"Because you've kept the lil one safe until she could save Na" He says like it was obvious"Ah" Marcus says flatly.Dra'kal smiles and slaps him on the shoulder, causing him to wince. The crowd disperses, and I see a blue oni, missing her horns, and rather well figured, I glare at her, until she help Na'kal up and carries him away. That must be Ashi."So what are you doing around here still?" He asks "Do you want to join our nightly feast or something, or...AhHAHhahaha""Uh, no I was just wondering why you hate the Silver tails" I say "And what would happen if i used the horn""Ah, old hatreds die slowly" He says, staring at the sky "They just keep burning and burning you know, Some of us were trying to fix things with them a bit ago, but even when we got a treaty, we just keep hitting eachother, it's foolish really, and I don't know, magic does odd things to humans, So I think it may do something weird to ya, don't know what but I have a guess"What do I say Wait what feast? And that would be well we must be going now, have fun Why are you so bigwrite in
>>38689787Remember, if the wolf of wallstreet taught me anything, its that 1. You can snort any substance to make it more effectiveand more importantly 2: We are a rich noble from a ruling family, so long as we remember we are rich we can keep ourselves living the high life, abusing our status to perpetuate it in a self sustaining loop of greed.
>>38689803> And that would be> well we must be going now, have fun
>>38689803> Why are you so big> Wait what feast?
>>38689772Anon do you even swear vengeance for your father?>>38689803> And that would be> Why are you so big> well we must be going now, have fun
>>38689803> well we must be going now, have fun
>>38689803> Why are you so big> And that would be> well we must be going now, have fun>>38689816>We are a rich noble from a ruling familyCurrently we are neither rich, nor does our family rule anything.
>>38689803>I glare at herWhy?
>>38689876See, now thats exactly the wrong attitude, just because we currently rule land that has actively kicked us out, doesn't mean we don't have rightful rulership over it, and more importantly, this means we still have all of our honorable titles and status as the current queen of that land (assuming everyone else is dead). In addition, we come from a family with a fine pedigree to it, who has ruled responsibly for centuries. We can market this to these easterners to make ourselves a reputable diplomat and diplomance things for them for money, which we use to reinforce that we are in fact rich by spending all of it on frivolous things, and then furthering our influence, making it so we actually rule something.
>>38689927>doesn't mean we don't have rightful rulership over itWe do, but our family still doesn't rule anything.Also, we were never a Queen, our dad was, a duke or something as far as I remember.We need to be careful how exactly we spin our story here.
>>38689978Yes, but we CAN spin our story, we are the rightful dutchess of that land, and as such can advertise it, just because the people are a bit uppity over some rumors doesn't mean they wont settle back in and be ruled once we whack them over the head with a big stick for being too uppity. You really need to see that movie to understand how you can abuse titles and reputation to keep up a quality of life, even when you should not physically be able to do so.
>>38690007I don't need to see a hollywood movie for that anon, real history gives more than enough examples of nobles in exile doing this exact thing.It is actually pretty common, it just rarely ends well.
"And that would be what?" I ask"Eh, Well since blood of a magical thing turns your kind into monsters, even if it touches your skin" he says "I'd say eating the source of our power would....well, just guessing and gonna say make you an oni""Oh" I say "Well I guess that makes a bit of sense, I think...Also why are you so big""The gods decided I was to tower above all," he laughs "or because I was the first child, maybe I just ate a lot more, who knows""Oh, well we must be going now" I say bowing "Have fun with your feat"He nods and walks back into the building, his hands in his pockets.I smile and walk out with Marcus and Helga, and into the little path with those strange green trees with the small branches.What do I do? go back to the ship explore the town check back on those pink trees, I think I saw a lot more of them up on the cliff near the see, with the big building on it Inspect oni horn/ Cleaver/ Nameless Talk to marcus and helga about something write in
>>38690054> check back on those pink trees, I think I saw a lot more of them up on the cliff near the see, with the big building on it
>>38690036I'd like to point out that most of the people who did it died in mansions at an old age... even if they didn't re take there land. Also lets not fuck with dangerous magical material just yet, especially seeing it'll likely result in gender weirdness and in forcing us away from the fox people things.
>>38690054> Inspect oni horn> Talk to marcus and helga about something"So...Do you think i should use it...?"(The horn)
>>38690054> check back on those pink trees, I think I saw a lot more of them up on the cliff near the see, with the big building on it> Inspect oni horn/ Cleaver/ NamelessSo... If we became an oni... would we be a female hornless one? Would we have strength still?
>>38690054> check back on those pink trees, I think I saw a lot more of them up on the cliff near the see, with the big building on it> Talk to marcus and helga about something>Hey, anyone want try being a Oni? Sounds fun>>38690076This is true, but I assumed we had greater ambitions.
>>38690101 >Mfw we're the only female Oni to ever have horns.....
>>38690113I feel like that would be some kind of hermaphroditic being to their people...
>>38690101female horned oniit'd weird out other oni a bitAlso hat man can turn you back to a human, but that costs one of his gifts, which you have to do something that catches his interest to get, and would hurt like a son of a bitch due to him ripping the magic out of you, which would also kill any magical abilites you gained while a monster, among other things
>>38690111Just saying, so long as we keep it that our ""Bad ending"" involves us living out a long life of luxury and dying rich, we can only go up!
>>38690054> check back on those pink trees, I think I saw a lot more of them up on the cliff near the see, with the big building on it> Inspect oni horn/ Cleaver/ NamelessALL 3
>>38690152So.... I think we all agree to hold off on the oni horn for the time being then?
>>38690155Some of them also suffered far more unpleasent ends, so its not like it can't backfire.Humble dignity serves us better in these lands, I would think.Let others think on their own how noble we are, far more effective than saying it.
>>38690174Yeah. It'd shoot us in the foot diplomatically.
>>38690174Yes, it can only lead to more complications, also the fact that were still quite young and growing would mean that magically mutilating ourselves into another species can cause all sorts of complications. Still, its a nice option to have on the table.
>>38690054 explore the townSo lets mix an oni horn and silver fangs tail for combo power.
>>38690174I would be cool with taking it now, but I don't think most are, and I don't care to watch the samefagging unfold.And it might bring us trouble later, better to keep it for now.
>>38690186In the east it's probably better to portray ourselves as wise than affluent if we wish to been seen in high regard...
>>38690174I am good with selling it.
>>38690220....Holy shit anon...It's so obvious yet we didn't see it......DO IT!
>>38690232Don't be too hasty anon, there are still 5 other clans whose parts we must gather to make the ultimate-power brew
>>38690263>>38690232Is there any good way to snort silver fox tail?
>>38690263This is a good ambition.
>>38690227I would rather keep it, it could be useful if we get into trouble with either clans.>>38690263We could add the other 5 later, but why not combine them and see what happens?
>>38690290Everyone knows thats for chewing.
I stare at the pink trees up on the cliff, and slowly begin to walk towards them, neither helga or Marcus saying a thing.I reach into my book bag and pull out the horn and turn it around in my hand, it's smooth and slightly pointed at the tip. but other wise it's a bit plain, besides the ragged edge where it go smashed up, I shudder as I imagine what that must have felt like."Do you think I should take it?" I ask them"Amelia" Marcus says slowly "You will always be my mi'lady, no matter the form you take, I said I'd protect you, and I'll do so to my grave""Uuuh, well what he said I guess" Helga says nodding."Would any of you want to take it then?" I ask smiling"Eh, if you asked" Marcus says shrugging"uuuuh, I don't want to be blue or red" Helga says scratching her arm "hate those colors""So what should we do with it?" I ask as I walk towards the path through the overly grown grass field, towards the pretty pink tress. Helga shrugs, Marcus shrugs a second after her. Oh that's oh well, that isn't disconcerting at all.I stop as the path turns into stairs winding up the sheer face of the cliff."Uuuuh" I say as I stare up the long walk up, I look at marcus, who smiles and picks up both me and Helga and puts us on his shoulders before he slowly makes his way up."Thanks marcus" I say happily as I stare back at the huge town behind us as the sun begins to fall"Oh no problem, though I am surprised you managed to walk that far" He says laughing"HEY" I cry "hehehehhe" helga laughs "What, it's pretty funny""Hmmph" I say turning away from both of them.It's night by time we reach there, and after he gently puts us down, Marcus sits down, panting heavily as he wipes sweat from his brow.I look around as Helga yawns and sits down next to Marcus, looking around like she expects something to jump out at her.cont
>>38690386Oh what's that...a sign? Hmm how curious, I wonder what is says on it. I walk over to it and see these words."In this grove, dwells a creature, who is quite shy, if you see it twice, it will take both your eyes" Under these words is a carved image of a fox tail.Well that sounds a bit scaryAnd we'll end heresince I need to sleep and run ASQ tommorowI'll archive and be around to answer questionsand talk>>38690263The Chimera Empress
>>38690429Thanks for running.Seriously though, why did she glare?
>>38690429Which creatures did we read the lore of again?
>>38690463I was tired, Stare, glare, I dunno, I was busy thinking on how I was going to fix an M&M character I'm going to play soon>>38690453Assassin School quest
>>38690429Thanks for the thread.
>>38690478Dragons, trolls, slimes and oni.>>38690429Thanks for running. Any idea how tog et hatman gifts without being evil?
>>38690478I remember the trolls, slimes, onis, dragons,
>>38690510>>38690513Thanks. We should probably read up on the foxes next, then the remaining five clan races
>>38690526Sadly Oni and Foxes are the only two eastern races we know off on the book. Only two with * next to their names.
>>38690541It could be there, but we don't know who the other clans races are. One might even be ruled by a dragon and consist of different races within their ranks.
>>38690510Doing awesome shit
>>38690582we've read up on dragons already. Point was very little was/is known about here past this port.>>38690632so rule of cool?
>>38690665Shouldn't be a problem to find someone to tell us who the seven clans are.
>>38690701I'm saying our book likely won't have any info on them as the writer didn't stay here long.
