Previous: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/38680832/Char sheet: http://pastebin.com/q54WuuFHA warm wind dances across my cheek as a few little happy rays of sunshine wake me up. I blink and rub my eyes, trying to remember where I am and why it smells so much like fish today. Oh yeah, I'm not home anymore, not that there really is much of a home left anymore as far as I can tell. I wipe my eyes and pull of the blanket marcus must have put on me when I took a nap. What was I doing again? oh right the book, I guess I fell asleep while I was reading it, that doesn't seem like me at all, but I guess I shouldn't have been reading that late anyways.Well anyways it seems like a nice enough day, as far as I can tell at least for this strange place. I look around, my stomach reminding me that I need breakfast, but fish has been getting really boring, and I've been wanting to try some of the native cuisine. I can see Nobi talking with Mr fisher about something, I don't know why Nobi is always hanging around the ship, but I'm sure he's not causing any harm so why worry about it. I do however Worry about the fact that Na'kal has been hanging around the ship lately, he seems to have become a bit attached to me, a bit like a puppy and has even taken to calling me big sis for some reason that escapes me, even though I am pretty sure he is older than my father, may his soul rest in peace, and he is quite taller than me.Now, Na'kal seems like a nice person, if a bit too enthusiastic. However, I think with him being around here, the silver tails might think I'm his friend, and then not like me at all, which would be a real shame, because besides the three that were torturing him, they seemed like they weren't the worst people I met, I mean they didn't kill my father, or try to kill me, Martin or Helga, So at least they have some kind of decency, I think.cont
>>38811569I sigh, I really shouldn't think to much about all that, since every time I think back on my old life I end up to stop thinking about stuff like that, focus on today Amelia, you can't undo the past, afterall.I can see Marcus peeling some of the last potatoes we've brought with us and Helga is fishing a few feet away from me, Now wearing a off white shirt and some really tattered sky blue pants with grass and mud stained into it. Why is she wearing something as dreadful as that?What do I do?

I know, I'll ask marcus to train me, I still need to get used to my new weapon anyways and I could do with a bit of cheering up as well. I walk over to Marcus, resisting the urge to shake my arms around to make the sleeves on my clothes flap around."Marcus" I say smiling as I sit down next to my large body guard "Do you think we could pl..train soon""Sorry Mi'lady" He says with a sigh, patting me on the head as he does so "But I gave my word to Helga's father that I'd peel the last few of these potatoes here, but afterwards, if you still want to, I will""Oh" I say sadly "well, try not to cut yourself, okay?"he nods and goes back to peeling. I get off of the box I sat on, now I need to find something else to do. Wait, I've never gone fishing before, I could always try to fish, Helga could teach me.I walk up to Helga and tap her on the shoulder, smiling. She shifts slightly and makes a little groan. Oh, she's asleep, that's...how is she sleeping while sitting up anyways?I shake my head. and try to move her off the chair she's sitting on."Huh" She says waking up "What are you doing?""J..just trying to get you off the chair" I say "I just thought you might be a bit uncomftarble there""Nrrgh" She groans standing up "you could've just woken me up""Well that would've been rude" I say "And moving me wasn't?" She asks staring at me, rubbing her eyes."Not at the time" I say turning "And can you teach me how to fish?""Why do you want to fish?" She asks "it really isn't anything but boring""Well I thought it looked interesting" I say crossly"Well Amelia, All you really have to do is sit around and wait for something to bite" She says scratching her head "And then you need to reel and pull it in, got it, Mi'lady?"I nod and sit down on the chair, grabbing the fishing pole as I kick my legs back and forth happilythe pole tugs suddenly and I gasp in surprise as it begins to pull my arms outwards.roll 1d20

"What, how did you!" Helga shouts in surprise "that isn't fair, I was sitting there for hours and got nothing!"I brace my feet against the railing and grab the reel with my left hand as I pull back with my right, the string suddenly pulls tight and I stop in surprise, is going to break, oh I don't want to break Helga's fishing pole the second I grabbed it. The string slackens, I blink and begin to reel it back in as Helga stands there, staring at me in surprise."You really are a natural at this, Mi'lady" She says chuckling "Never fished before, my..""I don't know what I'm doing though" I cry as I continue the pattern I've found myself trapped in when suddenly.*Splaoosh*Something leaps out of the water. I blink as water sprays and covers me. I blink a few more times, and see flopping in the air, surrounded by sunlight and a fading rainbow, a great red fish with golden stripes on it.Wait, aren't fish supposed to be dull and ugly, why is this one so colorful and pretty, I stare at it for a few moments before I suddenly find several of the crew grabbing the pole and pulling it back for me. The fish lands in front of me, and jumps along on the deck,splashing water everywhereThe crewmen cheer happily as I look around confused as Helga joins them in their cheeringWhat do I do? tell someone to cook this for dinner Show marcus push it back into the sea Give it to someone write in

Well, this one has to taste better than the other fish, I mean it's a lot prettier so it has to be a lot tastier right? "MARCUS!" I shout happily "I caught a fish come look!"Marcus pushes his way through the gathered crowd, still holding a potato in his hand, he looks down and smiles happily, before laughing."Well, I guess it just saw that you were prettier than the crew and leaped in shock" He says laughing "But really, you did great Mi'lady"The rest of the crew laugh and a go back to work, leaving me, Helga, and Marcus."Can you get some on to cook this for dinner?" I ask looking at the fish as it flops and gasps for air again."I'll try" He says "do you want it boiled, fried, or in a local dish?""Local" I say "I really don't like boiled fish and the fried always burns my mouth"Marcus nods."I'll see if I can convince the cooks, Amelia" he says walking off"Well at least a get to eat some of it to, right Mi'lady?" Helga says sadly"Yeah" I say "I'll make sure you get a lot of it to""Thank you Mi'lady" She says smilingWhat do I do? talk to someone go to town for food/shopping/exploring Go to the pink trees  Ask Helga if she likes it here Bother marcus write in

"Helga?" I ask as she begins to walk away to do something or another "Can I ask you something?'"Uh, sure, you don't really need to ask that, Amelia, you know?" She says turning around, "But what do you want to know then?""Do you like it here?" I ask "I mean do you feel a bit homesick to?""Well, it's new and people aren't trying to kill us right now" She says shrugging "And how could I miss home when Dad built his ship around our house""What?" I ask "did he really do that? that sounds a bit irresponsible to be honest""No" She laughs "but my old house wasn't much so who cares, really""Oh" I say sadly "well at least you like it here right?""Y..yeah I do" Helga says, brushing her hair out of her eyes "but I don't miss home, I wasn't trying to be rude or anything""You weren't rude Helga, so don't worry about that" I say walking towards the docks "now come on I want to see the town""Is marcus coming?" She asks"Not that I know of" I say smiling as I walk onto the pier"But wouldn't be a bit mad if you went out there alone?" She asks"She ain't going alone" Na'kal says standing up and stretching "Cause I'm going with her, isn't that right big sis""Uuuh" I say What do I say Yeah, come onNo, you're not coming do you know anyplace around here I should see Can I ask you something, Na'kal? write in

"Well I still think he'd be a bit angry if I go out without telling him" I say "Marcus, I'm going out to town!". Well, hopefully he heard that, or I'm going to get in a lot of trouble when I get back. Helga shakes her head smiling and steps onto the pier with me."So where are we going to go?" She asks as she stretches a bit "Mi'lady""Uhh" I say, oh I really don't know any place to go here "Well, Na'kal will just show us around, since he knows this place better than us""So I am coming then?" He asks laughing "Well i think I know some stores around town you'll like, Big sis""No, I never said you could come along" I say with a huff "And why do you keep calling me Big sis anyways, it's weird?!""Oh like I would've listened anyways, I just can't let my Big sis go out by herself now can I? " He says smiling slightly "And you saved my skin big sis, as far as I'm concerned, that makes you family, so it isn't weird"I sigh and shake my head."So where are those places you want to show me?" I say.Where do I go? Silk sweets Sun and moon spa Golden dragon park Rantiel's bar Crimson fang home Street vendors ask him about the pink trees on the cliff write in

"Just follow me big sis" Na'kal says walking off, putting on a jacket similar to the one his brother wore, but a lot shorter in the back "I'll show ya the best places in town, honest""I don't think we'll be allowed into most of them, but whatever" Helga sighs as she follows after him with me."Na'kal" I say as I try to keep up with his long strides "Can you tell me what those pink trees are doing on that cliff over there?""Oh" He says as we walk into the town proper, the common folk whispering among themselves as we go along "That's just a little something the silver tails grew, don't know why, far too frilly and girly for my tastes, honestly""I liked it" I say staring up at him"I..I mean I love it, REALLY love it, emperor would I just love to have one of those myself you know, just right outside my window, so I can stare at it all day" He says quickly waving his large hands in the air as he does so.Helga laughs and he glares at her for a moment before shaking his head and chuckling.He goes down and alleyway, glaring at something covered in rags that stares up at us as we go into a nother street and.What is that smell? I blink as my eyes begin to water from the sudden smell of various cooking foods and spices filling the air."Now this is the best place to get food in the whole town, and its cheap to big sis" He says"Is any of this actually edible?" Helga asks coughing as she covers her nose with her shirt"Well, for somethings at least" He says "I'll pay. just tell me what you want okay?""Um" I say looking around at the various humans and monsters behind stalls "some of those long fish that spider bodied thing is selling, Oh what's ever in the pots over there, a cup of tea and anything else you'll think I like"He nods and rushes off grabbing food and setting down strange coins shaped a bit like squares, a minute of two later he comes back, panting as he hands me a bag filled with hot food. He smiles and I smile back, making him smiles wider
>>38813679Na'kal is pretty bro

>>38813745>asskisserI read it more like he's just like a lil kid eager to please someone.
>>38813722Ehh he's a dumb brute, send him away for now...
>>38813679'Is there anywhere we could eat this in peace?" I ask holding the bag close to my chest "Yeah this place is a bit busy to actually sit down and eat" Helga says nodding "Oh, there's a park not to far from here" He says "Come on big sis,you'll love it""A park?" Helga says, sounding a bit surprised and digusted"Yeah that's what I said" Na'kal says nodding"Oh come on Helga, it's probably going to be really beautiful" I say smiling as I follow after Na'kalHelga sighs and jogs to catch up to me.The park isn't that far at all and has two streams flowing through it from the front as well as those weird branch less green trees and the pink ones. There's a bench near a large serpent thing spewing out water, there's a couple sitting near it, but they don't seem to care that we're hereI open up the bag and, wow that's a lot of foodWhat do I eat first the long fish the white stuff with the reddish brown sauce on itSome of the soup Bread? Tea the sweet smelling stuff"After this, there's a spa ya need to see Big sis" Na'kal says suddenly slapping me on the shoulder gently, but still making it stingWhere do you go after this? Spa somwhere else

>>38813858>Anon, chill.How am I not chill? I'm just pointing out the obvious.
>>38813869Asskisser implies they're doing it with the desire for a tangible reward, and I guess the same could be said of lil kids too but it feels more genuine than the slimy guy lavishing you with compliments or whatever.

>>38813902>Asskisser implies they're doing it with the desire for a tangible rewardApproval, in this case, obviously.I don't like that sort of attitude, and find it should be discouraged, its not a good attitude to have, regardless of the reason.

>>38813953I suppose they plan to squeeze more ou of Na'kal?
>>38813858Well he did try to attack the Silver Tails by himself so he's kinda dumb
>>38813981He is a kid, so a certain amount of "not-thinking-things-through" is understandable.
I poke at the one of the small wooden boxes in the bag and slowly push it open as Na'kal sits on the ground and closes is eyes, while Helga sits on the bench next to me, which is made out of red wood and seems to be carved in the shape of the same serpent thing as the fountain is. The box opens up and there's a box of some strangely colored stuff in it. I prod one of them with a finger. It's a bit squishy almost like one of those gummy candies that uncle griff used to give me. And they smell sweet to, so I'll try these first.I grab one and stick it in my mouth and smile, It's tasty if a bit weird tasting. I hear a gurgling sound and turn to Helga, who's looking down at the sweets, drooling slightly."Oh you can have some to, Helga" I say smiling as I chew on the first sweet and grab another one.She smiles and grabs a handful and sticks on in her mouth, and then makes a silly face and sticks her tongue and spits the sweet onto the ground."Errgh" She groans "how can you like those?""They taste good?" I say"it tastes like sweet chalk" She says wiping her mouth"It tastes fruity to me" I say shrugging as I grab a green star shaped one and stick it in my mouth "Mmm""Well, can I have something else?" She asks "I mean I didn't have breakfast mi'lady""Sure, you can have some of the long fish" I say smiling as I chew on the green on, which has an even stranger flavor than the first one"Eel, Big sis" Na'kal says"Yeah, the eel" I say smiling as I hand her the box with her in it.She grabs it and opens it up and grabs one of the eels and looks it over looking a bit confused, she takes a bite out of it and smiles, greedily eating the rest."Do you want something to Na'kal?" I ask a I grab an eel from the box...ew, it's all slimy and stuff"I already ate" he says simply I nod and chew on the rubbery fish thing as Helga turns over the small glass bottle inside over, making the liquid inside slosh around.she puts it down warily.cont
>>38814229Me and Helga split the Eel, but she eats most of it, but I eat enough sweets to be happy with just eating one of them.I close the bag up, I'll just save the rest for later. I get up and look towards the cliff, seeing the pink trees once again."I don't think I'm going to go to the spa, Na'kal" I say as I begin to walk towards the trees again"then were are you gonna go, big sis?" He asks standing up"the pink trees" I say smiling.He stops smiling and his eyes go wide for a second before he shakes his head."B...but that's where the silver tails live" He says "Well beyond it, but why do you want to go there anyways?"what do I say? just curious I uuh,, want to um, get revenge, yeah that's it, don't follow me I want to talk to them *shrug* Well why would I go there in the first place? write in

"I'm just a bit curious" I say shrugging "you can head back to the ship, if you want to, I can understand why you wouldn't want to go anywhere near there, but I want to explore, and that place looks like it'd be real pretty""Yeah" he says nodding "It's probably best if I go back to the ship, at least to tell your friends where you are going, and I don't want to cause any trouble for you big sis""Thank you Na'kal" I say bowing slightly as we walks off "I'll see you again later. hopefully""Wait, so we're going to have to walk all the way back up that cliff?" Helga asks as I begin to walk back into the town proper, trying my best to not bump into anybody "Without marcus?""Well, yeah" I say smiling "you can head back with Na'kal if you want to, but I am going to those trees""I'm not going to leave you alone with those weirdos" She says puffing her chest out, while trying to sound brave "So I'll come with you, to make sure you stay safe"I smirk and continue walking as Helga walks next to me, looking at her feet as she goes.After somewalking we get to the base of the cliff, and I find that there's a small carriage like thing at the bottom, with a person standing next to it. He seems to be fox spirit, judging from the tails and mask. He bows as I approach, and I bow back."Oh thank the light" Helga sighs rushing into the box."My lord has been waiting for you since you've arrived, Crawlby" the fox spirit says as I walk in "he'll be most delighted to hear you've decided to visit now"he closes the door behind us and from the small window in the cart I see him motion up wards. the thing shakes and slowly begins to raise upwards into the air. Helga yelps and grabs me in surprise, before realizing that nothing bad is happening and letting go, blushing a bit.the doors on the other side of the thing open up and we're back ontop of the cliff. Helga nearly jumps out of it, while I walk out of it.cont
>>38814668"I'm glad to be off that death trap" she sighs as she lays back down on the groundI turn back and look at the box thing as it floats in the air next to the cliff edge. I didn't really notice when I was going up, but is actually really nice in there, well at least the seats are, since they're covered in some kind of fur.What do I do?

I remember why we didn't go look at the trees much last time we were up here, I think the sign next to the trees warned about something taking your eyes if you see it twice. I look around, looking for something to cover my eyes. Well lets see, I have a bag filled with food and my book bag, wait the wooden box that had the sweets in it, it had two red ribbons around it. I open the bag and grab the glossy black box, pulling the two ribbons off of it, before putting it back into the bag.I hand one of the ribbons to Helga, who looks at me confused."Wrap that around your eyes" I say "remember what the sign said helga?""Oh right" She says sounding more than a bit afraid "hehehe, thanks Amelia, you really saved me right there".I smile and wrap the other ribbon around my eyes, and pull it up to my forehead. so I don't stumble around before I get to the clearly. I hear a thud and Helga yelp. I Shake my head and grab her hand and help her up. She shakes her head and mumbles and thank you before I lead her to the grove of trees. I look in it and can see a small pond surrounded by four rusting metal benches.It feels a eerily quite here, and I don't see any movement in the trees besides the wind. I grab my spear thing and grip it in both hands, taking a deep breath before I pull the ribbon over my eyes and walk in.at first, I hear nothing, besides Helga's nervous breathing as she follows behind me. And then, I hear a third set of footsteps. I keep walking, and as I think I near the center of the little park I hear something breaking branches and rustling branches. I keep walking forward into the darkness, trying to ignore the fact that my legs and hands are shaking with fear right now, but I can't turn back or look, I have to stay brave, Whatever this thing is, it can't hurt it.I..I feel something grabbing my arm, that can't be helga, helga's hands aren't that cold or sharp. I shriek in surprise and swing my spear. I hear an inhuman wail and hear something cont
>>38815154>I look in it and can see a small pond surrounded by four rusting metal benches.didn't we just put on a blindfold?
>>38815154Well fuck I hope we can talk out of this or else gg guys.
>>38815185It seems to imply we lifted the blindfold to look at it?
>>3881515that sounds like a great gust of wind. I pull my ribbon up and look around, Helga is hidding behind me, covering her eyes. The head of my spear thing is covered in what looks like ink. I look down and see a pool of the same stuff.I look around. I can hear something walking around, but I can't see anything.What do I do?

"Hey, are you alright?" I ask trying not to look into the groves of trees, as I hear something move around through them "I'm sorry that I hit you, but you shouldn't have surprised me.I don't get a response but I close my eyes and bow quickly. I open my eyes and look around, but only in front of me, to avoid looking at that thing, what ever it was. I think I hear something say, forgiven, but it was probably just the wind."Helga" I say "You can let go now, the thing is gone, I think""There was a thing?" She asks "Why didn't you tell me there was a thing""Because I thought you heard it to" I say "Sorry""Forget it, lets just get out of here before it comes back" She says letting go of me."Aren't you going to take your ribbon off?" I ask "I mean I don't think it's going to be coming back""Not taking chance" She says grabbing my hand. I shrug and keep walking, following the small stone path past the pond and benches and out the other side of the grove. I can see the silver tails little castle fort thing. it seems to be mostly made out of wood like the Crimson fangs and has two large banners flying the symbol of the clan.I walk up the cliff towards it and find a large metal gate with images of foxes dancing along it.I look around. no one seems to be here. but I can see some steam rising from beyond the gate.What do I do? hello? Try to push it open Try to knock it down *won't work* 1d20Toss something over the gate 1d20 Peek through the gate 1d20 go back write in
>>38815230> tell helga everythings okay> Call out to the thing> Keep walking, towards the white tail's fort thingmake it seem less "there's more where that came from you bastard" and more "sorry about that, but you did kinda creep on me there," and don't forget to bow
>>38815579> hello?> Try to push it open
>>38815579> write inKnock loudly and politely, before announcing ourselves and saying we were expected
>>38815579> hello?> ring doorbell [what? It was obviously next to the door]
I look around. Shouldn't there at least be a few guards here to make sure no one just walks in. Well I can't just barge in, I'm pretty sure that's just as rude here as it was at home. "Hello?" I ask "apparently your lord wants to see me, is anyone there? hello?"Nothing. Helga lets go of my hand and leans against the gate, panting slightly as she fans herself.I squint, I know there has to be someone in there, but why didn't they answer me? I knock on the gate gently. No response. I knock in it harder. rattling it slightly. Nothing. I huff and shake it. It flies open. Wait it wasn't even locked?!I look around as the steam floats past me. I can see a set of stairs leading into water with white flowers floating on it. I squint as the mist clears and I see a women sitting in the water. Her hair is a silver white color color and very long, so long in fact it is actually floating ontop of the water. She opens her eyes, and I can see that they're a light orange almost golden color. She looks at me, and tilts her head, smiling like a naughty child."Oh?" She says "and what is a little girl like you doing with such a big Naginata?She reaches her hand to the edge of the pull. Grabbing something that looks like a wooden sword, except curved and far more decorated than the ones Marcus has.What do I say? *Bow* I'm Amelia Crawlby, I was told that your lord wanted to see me, sorry for intrudingWhy is there a bath right behind the gate? are you a fox spirit to?

>>38816064What are you on about?
>>38816170As our starter.
>>38816170That he would have liked to play as kitsune, I assume.
>>38816180Right. Only it wasn't one of the possible starts, unless you're making assumptions about picking a different starting location.>>38112994
>>38816227>as this, like Dra'kal, was one of the other possible starts
>>38816227HM literally wrote in the last update it was one of our possible starts.
I blush and bow quickly. I hear the woman giggle and the water splash as she stands up to and bows or I think she does before she sits down."I'm Amelia Crawlby" I say now looking up that I'm sure she's back in the water "and I was told your lord wanted to see me, Sorry for intruding""I am Kiki Gin Pleased to meet, Oh, so your the foreigner he's hasn't shut up about for the last week or so" She laughs grabbing a shallow cup and sipping from it "To be honest, I thought you'd a bit taller, among things, though I really didn't expect you to have a naginata of all things" I bite my tongue and take a breath."Can I come in?" I ask playing with my hair and looking away from her."Into the bath or the fort?" she says smugly "because you're welcome in both""Why is there a bath right behind the gate anyways?" I ask"There's a bath?" I hear helga ask from the other side of the gate."Well, I don't really know to be honest" She says taking another sip "but I'm not complaining, it's a really nice bath after all, nice and warm as well""I can see that" I say staring at the steaming water."So are you going to just stand there or are you going to come in?" She asksWhat do I say? into the bath or the fort? Can you tell me a bit about your clan Yeah, the fort, not the bath well I haven't had a bath in two weeks, well a warm bath at least can my handmaiden come in as wellcould you put something on first? write in

>>38816339> well I haven't had a bath in two weeks, well a warm bath at least> Don't ask her to put something on.
>>38816339> can my handmaiden come in as well> well I haven't had a bath in two weeks, well a warm bath at least
>>38816377You can definitly conduct business in a bath, and it would probably be a good idea to get really clan.
>>38816339> well I haven't had a bath in two weeks, well a warm bath at least> can my handmaiden come in as well> Can you tell me a bit about your clanWe need to be clean before visiting the lord of the manor.
>>38816339> well I haven't had a bath in two weeks, well a warm bath at least>Be proud of our body.
>>38816272>>38816354That sentence slipped my mind. Combination of lack of sleep, distraction by a host of other things I'm currently reading/working on and the fact that it made no sense.How does it being one of the possible starts make that option a very bad idea and moreover how does it make it worse than if neither of them were possible starts?I didn't understand what it was getting at, decided to reread and more carefully consider it after voting and then promptly forgot about it.
>>38816457>How does it being one of the possible starts make that option a very bad idea and moreover how does it make it worse than if neither of them were possible starts?I can see how it would be a bad idea, but I also don't get how that relates to it being a possible start.
>>38816457>>38816486Please don't vote, I'd rather keep our legs.
>>38816534Still sad about that.
>>38816534In another headmaster quest The Mc lost her legs after fighting something clearly out of her power range. She had to invoke a super mode and it cost her , her legs. Additionally she failed to actually kill her opponent who is now pissed over it and willing to send even more shit her way.
>>38816550No, I don't understand what you mean with "Please don't vote"?
>>38816525>>38816550Is this the latest UMGQ thread? I missed it and it's been sitting on the backburner a while now...
>>38816561I got that part, I didn't get >>38816564Personally I expect civil war in the chos realm after this, her rule was already shaky, after this beating she probably will lose control.
>>38816564I believe he doesn't want you to vote.
>>38816588Well thanks for the spoilers then.
>>38816573Yeah Eli lost her legs permanently unless she can get a wish. Tried fighting the Queen of Chaos solo.>>38816592We should be so lucky, I doubt it. Plus she's strong enough to take down most monsters of chaos herself, and she ahs magical girls still.
Well I haven't had a bath in two weeks, well a warm bath at least and she is right, it does look like a very nice bath, it's even bigger than the one I had at home. I look around, blushing furiously as the temptation of a warm bath gnaws at me. I mean for on hand I'll be naked in front of a stranger, but on the other, I'll finally get a proper bath for once and be able to relax instead of shivering and shaking."Well I haven't had a proper bath in a while" I say meekly"oh by all means come in then, the water is wonderful and there is more than enough for the two of us" She says teasingly.I place my nagithingy on the ground and undo the bow along my robe thing, before taking the rest of it off and piling it near the stairs. A wind blows and I shake a little and close my eyes before I take the rest off and nearly trip into the bath, Kiki laughing as I nearly stumble in. "Not very graceful for a princess are you?" She giggles as she takes another sip ""I slipped" I say letting myself sink into the water."I could see that" She says smiling as she pushes the wooden sword away."C..can my hand maiden come in?" I ask"hmm, did the lord say she could?' She asks swirling her cup around"No but she is supposed to be by my side at all times" I say "Fine it couldn't hurt could it" She says "but she can't get in the bath, just to make sure the lord doesn't send the three stooges out to punish her"I turn and see Helga putting her shoes back on, blushing slightly as she turns away and stares out the door."Helga?" I ask. She doesn't say anything back and just covers her eyes with the ribbon again.Kiki says nothing and takes another sip from her little cup."Say, kiki, can I ask you something?" I ask looking at her.Her ears perk up and I see they're also silver and fox like."About what Amelia?" she purrs while taking another sip"Your clan, the silver tails" I say cont
>>38816573Yeah, it was the finale as far as I am concerned.
>>38816656"Oh, wanting to join are we?' She says smiling looking at me with a weird look in her eye"N..no" I say "I'm just a bit curious about you is all""Oh, shame" she says "You would've made a cute fox spirit"What do I ask? Wait what do you mean by that? Why do you hate the crimson fangs? So what exactly happened with Na'kal here? C..cute?What is your lord like? write in
>>38816649>We should be so lucky, I doubt it.Actually that wouldn't be lucky at all, all the contenders will be gunning for our head to establish their own reputation.And she doesn't actually 'have' the MGs, most of them don't listen to her. Also we didn't 'try', we beat her ass, even if at a great cost, the only bad part was letting her get away.
>>38816718> Why do you hate the crimson fangs?>What is your lord like?
>>38816718> Wait what do you mean by that?> Why do you hate the crimson fangs?> So what exactly happened with Na'kal here?
>>38816718> Why do you hate the crimson fangs?> Wait what do you mean by that?>What is your lord like?>>38816649>We should be so lucky, I doubt it.Realistically something like that will happen, or another reason for her to not throw all the legions of chaos on us. Its still a story, if HM wanted play it completly realistic she would have come personally to stomp us, or send one of her most powerful servants, right after redeeming Charlotte.
>>38816718> Wait what do you mean by that?> Why do you hate the crimson fangs?
>>38816718> Why do you hate the crimson fangs?> So what exactly happened with Na'kal here?>What is your lord like?>>38816727Pretty sure she still could have beaten us, if it'd cost her a lot.>>38816801Anons keep pushing for straight realism, so it'll get worse .
>>38816718> Wait what do you mean by that?> C..cute?>What is your lord like?Good to know we're cute. Still, need to pass the bloodline though, if it's still worth anything.
>>38816718> C..cute?> Wait what do you mean by that?>What is your lord like?
>>38816853>Anons keep pushing for straight realism, so it'll get worse .No one does. Internal consistency is not realism.>>38816853>Pretty sure she still could have beaten us, if it'd cost her a lot.She couldn't even hurt us. And Hm flat out said we could beat anything in archmage mode.
>>38816718> C..cute?>What is your lord like?> Why do you hate the crimson fangs?
>>38816853>Anons keep pushing for straight realism, so it'll get worse .No we don't, and probably it will. Stakes get raised, thats pretty normal.Some anons wanted a villain that isn't a silly caricature, thats different from wanting ruthless realism, because then there would be no story.
You can stop the samefagging now, C..cute is already in. Seriously, you're just wasting postcount.
>>38816928The surprise leg crippling was just a plain bad idea and if it happens here, I am gone.
>>38816718> Why do you hate the crimson fangs?> So what exactly happened with Na'kal here?>What is your lord like?
>>38816949>Everything is samefagging.
>>38816953>The surprise leg cripplingWe were explicitly told something very very bad would happen. There was nothing "surprise" about that.And it was a good idea, if you can't stand having setbacks in quests, go read one of the hundreds "nothing-bad-or-challenging-ever-happens"-SoL quests.
>>38816983I was thinking some stat nerf and losing some orb abilities, nothing as fucking retarded as what happened. Still none of this would have happened if we didn't double 20.
>>38816979When the amount of votes jumps by five from one update to the next, for a not very important vote, it obviously is, dont be silly.
>>38816953We tried to fight the queen of chaos by all rights we should be dead as should all the other girls.>>388169791 minute exact time difference
>>38817012>for a not very important voteI'll have you know being cute is very important. >>38817023Where?
>>38817023>by all rightsBy what rights? The person who makes the setting and decides how powerful the Queen of Chaos is also made the archmage mode that allowed us to fend her off. Clearly therefore we should not be dead "by all rights".
>>38816953>>38816983>>38817010guys, we can get Crimson's legs back with a wish. odds are Charlotte will use hers on Elizabeth anyway and if not there are other MGs who would if Elizabeth didn't use her own wish
>>38817023>We tried to fight the queen of chaos And I am still mad about that.
>>38816949>Bitches about votes wasting post count>Says nothing about the people discussing a different quest
>>38817041On the two cutes here>>38816903>>38816929>>38817044Pretty sure He asspulled it cause his anons went straight up retard.>>38817058Wishes don't work like Madoka. You don't start with one. You have to bust your hump to even get considered for one by the power that be. Straight from HM himself.
>>38816870"C..cute?" I ask sinking lower into the water to hide my blush "What do you mean by that?""Oh" She says leaning back against the edge "just that your face is the perfect kind for my kind, understand, you'd be getting marriage requests by the end of the week if you decided to become a fox spirit""No I meant what you meant by if I was one" I say "do you turn people into fox spirits?""Well, why else would there only be fox spirits in the clan?" She asks."I don't know?" I say feeling a bit confused now, I mean it does make sense but, how do they, do that?"Oh you're just so cute when you're confused" She laughs.I sink lower and turn away from her. My head is beginning to feel a bit fuzzy from all this heat and steam."Why do you hate the crimson fangs?" I ask "I don't personally" She says "and I can't really tell you why our clans hate eachother, it just seems to have always been that way, really""Oh" I say sadly "so what's your lord like anyways?""Hmm, oh he's a rather cordial man when you're on his good side, but if you're on his bad side, well you'll know what a demon is like if you meet him like that" she says sipping from her tea "but other than that, he's a bit well, serious about everything""Oh" I say, he sounds a bit like dadWhat do i do? enjoy the bath, then go into the fort Ask her how they turn people into fox spiritsAsk her why she thinks the Crimsons and Silvers hate eachotherCan I have some of what you're drinking, I'm a bit thirsty write in

Are you sure about that?Also, everything he makes is "asspulled", again, he makes the setting.
>>38817114> Ask her how they turn people into fox spirits

>>38817139He asked for a example of stuff being exactly one minute apart, which I provided, not sure why you are so bitchy about me doing so.
>>38817149Archmage mode was a thingBut I didn't think I was going to have to bring it up until Lilac, which by then wouldn't have crippled you from being overloaded with magical energy
>>38817149It wasn't an asspull so much as a horrible, awful terrible, no good idea that speaking of such bad decision making and writing, that it makes me concerned for this quest.
>>38817114>well you'll know what a demon is like if you meet him like thatBored officeworker? I mean, that is what the vast majority of demons are like. Officeworkers at Torture Inc.>Can I have some of what you're drinking, I'm a bit thirsty
>>38817191>which by then wouldn't have crippled you from being overloaded with magical energyThats possible? I assume its linked to our power?>>38817200Its such a horrible idea that one of the best selling anime of last season used it to great effect.Nah, you're just butthurt because you can't stand actual consequences in quests.
>>38817093>You don't start with onei realize that, but out of the 4 current MGs at least 2-3 of them would use the wish to help Elizabeth once they earn the wish. Or hell, maybe Charlie the Goblin really will figure a way to make it up to her and fix things.
>>38817114> Ask her how they turn people into fox spirits>Ask her why she thinks the Crimsons and Silvers hate each other>>38817191I can see it.>>38817200We overloaded on magical enemy fighting an enemy we shouldn't have cause we were idiots. We're lucky we just lost them and they didn't blow up.
>>38817191Please tell me the legs thing was the result of some pills you are no longer taking. >>38817233Nah just this specific consequence. Nice strawman though.
>>38817114>> enjoy the bath, then go into the fort>>Ask her why she thinks the Crimsons and Silvers hate eachother
>>38817114> enjoy the bath, then go into the fort> Ask her how they turn people into fox spirits>what are you drinking?>ask for some if it's not alcoholicDefiantly don't want to show up drunk before the lord.
>>38817236>cause we were idiotsNo, because she threatened hundreds of people and the last time we got into a firnedly chat with a chaos creature that came for us it nearly got Charlotte killed.
>>38817235You saying them earning a wish is a given, it isn't They're like 9th levels spell rare. We could never even see one. As for Charlie he might just get them to pay our bills so our family doesn't get broken from financial troubles.
>>38817236>We're lucky we just lost them and they didn't blow up.The difference is irrelevant. Hell if they blew up we would have an easier time with prosthetic. Now we need to amputate them.
>>38817114> enjoy the bath, then go into the fort>Ask her why she thinks the Crimsons and Silvers hate eachother
I want UMGQ to leave.
>>38817233It's basically shoving the heart of order into you for a vast magical boost, basically showing what you would be at your highest possible pointWhich for crimson is very highHowever, At the time, you were on very low health and couldn't have taken the sudden strain of such magic normally anyways without some backlash
>>38817281Go fuck yourself legruiner. >>38817319TLDR we lost our legs to dice rolls.
>>38817306You're actually right, sorry about this.
>>38817299Please stop talking about this. I want to keep on top of this thread but have yet to read the latest UMGQ
>>38817267Nice butthurt anon, doing dumb things has consequences.>>38817281That was during the fight which we moved from the school were there were innocents to a building were they were not. nice strawman anon. We clearly did something stupid.>>38817333Oh fuck off. If he hadn't done what he did we'd be dead.
>>38817306I want UMGQ to be well written but I guess we both lose.
>>38817191still sucked, and if I can be perfectly honest the whole crippled thing feels really overdone and drama forcing in these sort of situations regardless of whether it can be fixed later or results from a "use in case of immanent death" scenario
>>38817389>the whole crippled thing feels really overdone and drama forcing in these sort of situations>meaningful injury sustained in a very dangerous situation is "overdone"
>>38817368If he had not punished us for getting double 20s we would have got to fight some monster and keep our legs.I pray this quest isn't so unlucky to get something as awful as a double 20. This isn't a roll under quest, but you wouldn't know it from how he works high rolls.
>>38817306I feel you. The monster quests are the only things HM writes that I follow. This shit is annoying right now. I've wanted to go into his other quests to ask about stuff from Y/MMQ, but I don't because it would be rude as fuck.
>>38817306and Elizabeth wants to walk again, but odds are that's not happening anytime soon either
>>38817423I honestly would have preferred he just killed us.
>>38817319Since people are still bringing up the topic, how are gonna move around fighting? Do we look the same, or do we have some sort of device?
>>38817469Through the power of bad writing.I am not joking.
>>38817434>but I don't because it would be rude as fuckFeel free, but it should be after the session is over. We often talk crossquest there.
>>38817423>>meaningful injury sustained in a very dangerous situation is "overdone"no, an injury I would expect to happen. suddenly turning into the poor girl who can't feel her legs anymore is overdone. I'd take a year in the hospital recovering over *POOF* now your legs don't work because MAGIC
>>38817433Anon If we hadn't gotten that Double twenty She'd have kicked our ass then summoned a monster on us afterwards. Same thing would have happened and people would have gotten hurt.>>38817458and end quest? Fine leave then. same thing.>>38817469We can use our legs in magical girl form. but only then our normal life is fucked.
>>38817200Nah, HM is too smart to make a mistake like that, he obviously railroaded (good rolls back firing is as text book of an example of railroading as you can get) so we would suffer and he could rejoice.
>>38817521Go back and reread Headmaster's post session commentary, because you won't listen to me if I tell you that you are wrong.
>>38817583WE attacked someone we needed straight 20 to even affect. How the fuck did you think it would turn out? It's like attacking a Lich king at level 5. Stupid and will get you killed unless Dm saves you ass via fiat.
Please shut the fuck up about this already. It's a different quest. It doesn't belong here. Make a new thread for it if you must, or head to Spooky or whatever. Just stop going on about it in this thread.
>>38817497I'd post a thumbs up reaction pic but I am too sad to do it.
I lean back and close my eyes for a few minutes, enjoying the warm water and the flowery smell around me. eventually I hear Kiki stand up."I think that's a long enough bath to clean you up" She says as she throws on a thing like I was wearing, except hers is mostly white with a few bits of purple on it and has a hole in the back for her two tales "though I'd enjoy having a bit longer in here"I get out and suddenly feel a breeze, I shake and notice I'm suddenly dry. I hear Kiki giggle and I get dressed as quickly as I can while I hide behind a statue of a fox. I nudge Helga on the shoulder and she jolts in surprise. She lifts her ribbon and blush."Oh' She says "Are we going now?" She ask"No we're going to see the lord of the silver tails" I say "Unless of course you want to stay out here""No no" She says "I'll go, I'll go"I smile and walk across the edge of the bath and follow Kiki into the fort proper, walking past several colorful patches of flowers."So, why do you think the crimson fangs and silver tails hate eachother?" I ask"I don't know, but I'm guessing one killed one of the other or broke a deal or something" She says "honestly an older Crimson fang member would know more about it since we're the youngest clan here, though our lord may know something about it""oh, then how do you turn someone into a fox spirit?" I ask"Now that is a secret that only we are allowed to know" She giggles "unless you decide to join us, I can't tell you"She walks me into a main hall place and I see a robed figure standing with his back to us.What do I do? Bow, and say my name Ask him something Look around walk up to him write in

>>38817719>After taken a spell that should one shot us? Unlikely.He outright said otherwise in the thread.
>>38817642> Bow, and say my name>>38817767Anon pls. Saying it won't stop them, and paying their shitposting attention just incentives it.
>>38817679>>38817767Misery loves company.
>>38817771>He outright said otherwise in the thread. That spell damn near killed us. Fighting Anything afterwards would have lead to us either losing badly or triggering archmage anyways. Plus that spell would have done a shit ton of damage in the mall. Once we charged her like an idiot we were getting fucked up no matter how well we did.

I bow quickly, since i don't want to be rude in someone else's house"Amelia Crawlby" I say as I stop bowing and look up. "Oh, I didn't expect you to be knowledgeable in our ways little noble" He says turning around, throwing off his robe.His hair is the same color as Kiki's, and he to has ears like hers, but he has around seven more tails than she does. He also has a thin mustache and goatee."And I already know your name, but to be polite" he says bowing slowly "Akio, and I am very pleased to meet you in person, come we have much to talk about, but I assume you're very confused right now, so you may ask me a question or two"I look around and notice, that the whole place is very well decorated, looking a bit like my home did, but with less familiar things and more strange unknown things.What do I do?

>>38818218>>38818215>>38818214>>38818132We were just a moment ago explicitly told its a secret and we can only find out by joining the clan.Pay at least the slightest amount of attention.
>>38818272Probably some idiot samefagging
>>38818292Several, most likely, but clearly 'some' of those are genuine and it still applies.
>>38818272I know that already. I just figured I should just get it out of the way before it gets spamed to death.
>>38818272I figured it would be implied that we would join. >>38818292>Boy who cried samefag.
"So lord Akio why exactly did you want to see me anyways?" I ask playing with my sleeves nervously as he stares at me smiling a very wolfish smile"Oh I just wanted to talk with you" He says, his voice sounding sweet and almost sugary "makes sure that you, a fleeing a noble would feel at home here, or at least show you that I am aware of your plight""Oh well that's wonderful than" I say happy to see that he wasn't planning something bad for me "I'm really glad that you would care that much about someone you don't know""Oh I'm sure you'd do the same if one of us came fleeing to your lands" he says nodding "after all, is it not common curtsey between nobles to shelter them when they lose everything?""Well I wouldn't really know since father never told me about such things and I never had to deal with it before" I say "but can I ask you how the whole ehh, fighting between you and the fangs began"His eyes turn harsh and he glares at me for a moment, sending a chill down my spine, before he smiles again."Oh I haven't the clue how it started" he says happily "though it probably has to do with jealousy that the emperor favored is over them""Oh" I say smiling.I don't think he's telling the truth here, or at leas the whole truth, but then again the crimson fangs didn't seem the brightest of bunches when I met them honestly , but they were pretty nice to me and so are these people...ah!"So is there anything I can get you my dear guest?"

$20 says the way to turn into a fox spirit is touch fluffy tail.
>>38818359 I need help getting to my cousin write inAsk him if there's anything she can do to have the secret and be able to turn to a silver tail, say its an experiment we're working on.
>>38818487It would bar us doors with the other clans, so its actually more likely to hinder us in that goal.
>>38818487And lose our neutrality, and probably be forced into a kitsune and be unable to change back except via hatman.>>38818499Or take one for yourself and eat it like the horn.
 I need help getting to my cousin So is there anything you want me to do?WHY do you have a bath right behind the gate!?What if we ground up the fox tail and made super cocaine or something?
>>38818524>Or take one for yourself and eat it like the horn.I'm fairly sure the touching of fluffy tail will be involved.I would like to decorate our naginata with one. Like a fluffy tassle.>>38818540Wouldn't you need to petrify it before you can make it into powder?
>>38818499I feel like we stand a shot at trying to stroke one and when reprimanded say something about cultural differences. After all, did we not bow respectfully already? Clearly we weren't aware at the offence our actions would cause!>>38818359>touch fluffy tail
>>38818359 I need help getting to my cousin So is there anything you want me to do?
>>38818566Randomly stroking other peoples body parts is pretty much universally rude.

"Well Lord Akio" I say playing with my sleeves again "I want to get word to a cousin of mine in the capital that I'm still alive so I can at least be with family while I'm here, could you do that?"He smiles widely before going back to his kind and normal smile."Oh I thought you'd ask something like that" He says joyfully "sadly however, due to the tumultuous times our land has fallen into recently, it will take awhile for the message to reach him, but while you wait, feel free to stay here with us instead of on that rickety old boat""Wait, you're not going to ask me to do something for you?" I ask "you're just going to send the message, out the goodness of your heart?""Of course" He laughs "What kind of host would I be if I started making my guests rake up the leaves and tend to the flowers?""Oh, I guess that makes sense don't know why I thought you'd make me work" I say scratching the back of my head "Also why do you have a bath right behind the gate?!""Why not?" he asks shrugging "Now, will I need to prepare a bed, or two, or even three?"What do I do?*nod* I like the ship, but thank you Ask him something talk to him about something explore the gardens 1d20explore the fort 1d20 *both these for stealth* write in

Lets get a list of all the things we'd need to grind together if we want to snort god powder and overdose on sweet sweet magic.
>>38818829It's gonna be fox blood. It's never not monster blood in this setting.
>>38818857Oni horn is not monster blood.
>>38818857Its Oni Horn instead of blood, and the magic of kitsune is in their tails.So most likely it got something to do with those.
So that how the fox transformation happen tell me this was it a nine tailed fox you hunted
>>38818524>And lose our neutrality, and probably be forced into a kitsune and be unable to change back except via hatman.Not seeing the downside.
>>38818886>>38818877The horn is/was filled with blood and humans are already unstable as fuck. They're like eevees when it comes to monster stuff. Their super secret ritual is for turning anything, monster or human, but we could just drink some of their blood or something.
>>38818944Hunted by oni, not being a lord in our own right, not gaining the power of all 7 factions.
>>38818946>The horn is/was filled with blood...No? They broke it off, anon. And there was nothing of it bleeding described anywhere.
>>38818944Posting fetish images probably isn't going to convince anyone.
>>38818971I'd rather deal with fighters then assassins as foes, and the gain the power of the seven clans thing isn't happening.
>>38818984He can feel free to post them though.I like sexy fox ladies.Still not gonna make me give up on the Chimera Empress plan.
"I like the ship now" I say bowing slightly "but thank you for the offer".He frowns for a moment and then smiles happily again, okay that smile is getting a bit creepy."Oh well have it your way, but if you change your mind you can always just come back and ask" He says tilting his head while smiling a bit wider."Thank you again" I say "but what can you tell me about the current state of the war going on here""oh" He says "Well the wind gods as I understand are pushing into and being pushed back from the Weavers, while the burning maws are to put politely killing without regard for anyone else, The dancing cranes however seem to be try to break a deal with the river lotuses currently, so it's all just a lot of chaos right now, a terrible state really" "Oh, well thank you for telling me all that" I say "Can you tell me a bit of your people's ways""Oh, I'm sorry, but my throat is parched from all that talking just now" He says rubbing his throat with a coarse voice "and teaching you all the little manners and intricacies would take a while, maybe even months or years, but I'd be happy to talk over a drink if you'd humor me with one"What do I do? go back to the ship Have a drink with Lord Akio ask him about the oni horn Ask him why all this is happening ask for something elsetalk to kiki about something explore the fort 1d20 write in
>>38818973Not strictly true, the oni was said to have blood dripping down his head from it.>>38818946That said, it's the ground up powder that actually is used>>38818944We lose any magical ability gains we get whilst in fox modo if we ever use hatman to revert it
>>38818984What website do you think you came to?
>>38818944We talked about this earlier, if and when we choose to pick a race, were hopefully not going to do so based on it being your fetish, even though transforming into any monster race constitutes my fetish so I'm fucked on that front.
>>38819036> Have a drink with Lord Akio>Nothing alcoholic though, our guardian would be angry at us.
>>38818944Pffft do you even oni faggot!?>>38819036> Have a drink with Lord Akio
>>38819036> Have a drink with Lord Akio
>>38819036> Have a drink with Lord AkioI can't tell whether or not we're pissing this guy off, its concerning!
>>38819056Oni horn isn't THE thing that transforms people and nothing else is used, but it does transform them. It's not an exclusive thing here. Just because the horn would transform us, that doesn't mean that the blood wouldn't as well.
>>38819036> Have a drink with Lord AkioThis is totally not gpoing to end up with us getting drugged or anything. Nope, completly trustworthy guy.
>>38819036> Have a drink with Lord Akio> ask him about the oni horn> Ask him why all this is happening
>>38819056>We lose any magical ability gains we get whilst in fox modo if we ever use hatman to revert itI'd vote to stay that way.Honestly though as long as we pick something, neutrality will just give us seven foes rather then six and and ally.
>>38819036> Have a drink with Lord Akio> Ask him why all this is happening
>>38819112ONI 1 KITSUNE 0 OH YEAH!

Those are her tits.">>38819058The traditional games board of 4chan, a place where a small group of fetishists reside and nostalgia gush about smuttier days past, but is also home to a much larger group of puritanical gabnabblers who will flip their shit at anything they could call Magical Realm on.
>>38819036>>38819081> Ask him why all this is happening
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>38819036> Have a drink with Lord Akio> Ask him why all this is happening> explore the fort 1d20

>>38819254Are you clairvoyant?
>>38819027>the Chimera Empress plan.Please tell me you don't think this is viable.
>>38819288Yes, dice gods and men hate exploring today.
I never knew I would be falling head over heels over monster girl but since someone transformed into a fox and then a kitsune that looks like my wife in another tread I get dibs on the hot ONI girl for a date
>>38819312I'm pretty sure it's just a ploy to get impatient anons to wait until we see what all of our options are before jumping for the closest transform.
>>38819312I'm absolutely certain this is viable.Unlikely to actually happen maybe, due to anons short attention span, but definitly viable.
>Not saving all the parts and having Hatman imbue our naginata with the magic of all 7 clans to make the ultimate weaboo weapon
>>38819352I'm more worried that we pick nothing.
>>38819387We could still do that if we pick a clan.
>>38819325>on the hot ONI girl for a dateNa'kal isn't a girl. Yet.
>>38819388I would be perfectly okay with that.Especially since we don't know yet what Hatman offers.
>>38819388As if that would ever happen. If we dally too long we're just gonna end up snorting that horn.I'm personally hoping to see what un-clan affiliated magic we can accrue before doing anything
The thing is, I suspect those people who murdered our father for his occult works would likely not appreciate his daughter coming back a monster. Granted we might as well pull a Daenerys and just fuck off in the east and never come back.
"Well I guess I drink wouldn't hurt" I say "so long as it's nothing that my bodyguard would get angry at me for drinking"one of his ears twitches as he begins to walk up the stairs, his robe flowing as he does so."Oh no, I wouldn't do that, I was talking about a bit of tea while we talk, I wouldn't dream of offering such a thing to a lady like yourself" He say chuckling "But come along, standing there will just tire your legs"I nod and walk up the stairs after him, Helga following after me, as does Kiki for some reason.He opens a door to a hall, with open windows and a plain white carpet and walks to the end of it, there are rooms to the side, but I can't see anything past the paper walls. Wait why do they have paper walls anyways.He slides a door open and walks into a small room with two one tailed fox spirits in it, both of them women, wearing their robe things very loosely, they bow and begin to pour me tea as I sit down across the lord. Helga goes to sit down but is quickly glared at by the two fox spirits."The lord did not invite you for a drink now did he?" One of them says leaning close to her,"N..no" Helga says backing away from the table as the fox spirit smiles happily and nods."So could you tell me how all this happened?" I ask as I take a sip of the tea, wow, this actually tastes pretty good now "the war I mean""The king, well he's a good man, but he'd dying and he hasn't fathered a single heir" He say sadly sipping his tea, his tails laying down on the ground "So of course the problem of who will rises as he falls, and none of the others seem to realize that if we all just work together we can decide the next one peacefully, but of course some decided to get back at old rivalries or shocking as it may be try and take the power for themselves, and so, our land burns, idiots""What about the crimson fangs?" I askCont
>>38819464The people who murdered our father were the pissed off retard peasants that plague this setting.
Also hypothetically speaking, what would happen if we rushed for demons in an attempt to make the OP kill himself?
>>38819453The term comes from HM himself, after the idea came up.You can be certain if we actually pursue it, he will allow it to be possible.>>38819464>I suspect those people who murdered our father for his occult works would likely not appreciate his daughter coming back a monster>thinking we care
>>38819464>implying we'll be weak enough to give a shit what they think>further implying we won't just kill the people who went after our father out of revenge
>>38819497We'd probably get eaten and quest ended.>>38819464>Implying we won't kill those who wronged our family, justly.
>>38819500>if we actually pursue it,Not if my vote can help it.
>>38819552Thats a completly different matter, but the question was if it was viable.And it is.
>>38819552I wonder could we exchange all those items for angel powers? After all hatman a proto-outsider which is both and if we stay a good girl......
>>38819466"Oh them" he sighs "they don't care, they as a whole would prefer not to rule as they are happy to lie their lives drinking and killing rather than worrying about such stressful things like taxes or quelling revolts without bloodshed, or the anything to do with court life to be completely honest""Oh so is that why you signed a treaty with them then?" I ask taking another sip of tea "because it doesn't seem like you hate them as much as I thought you would from all I've been hearing lately""The times of us needing to fight are past" He says snarling "But some of mine and there's can't get it through their skulls that we would do better together then against eachother"He sighs and smiles again, taking another sip of tea."SO what would happen if I ate one of their horns?" I ask"Well if you don't turn it to powder, a lot of pain' he says "but it would turn you into one them, though I don't know why you'd want to ruin your body by doing something like that"Kiki giggles behind me as do the two one tailed fox spirits."Uh, I don't understand what's going on?" Helga says sounding confused.What do I do? this is some really good tea so why don't you just tell them that?That's a bit rude isn't it? I mean they weren't ugly at all, just no like you or me So who would be the best ruler in your opinion? Helga can sit if she wants to why was one of your own ordering weapons a week ago? thank him for the tea and leave/explore write in
>>38819622> So who would be the best ruler in your opinion?>Would it be possible for Helga to sit?> this is some really good tea> so why don't you just tell them that?
>>38819622> this is some really good tea> so why don't you just tell them that?
>>38819612He'd probably be able to give us info about the required ritual, but actually doing it would be another matter entirely. And I don't think he'd care as much about random bits from 7 monsters as he would about us pulling off some kind of crazy bullshit.
>>38819622> this is some really good tea> so why don't you just tell them that?> So who would be the best ruler in your opinion?>"Might I ask, what clan does the current King come from? What manner of creature is he?"
>>38819622> this is some really good tea> so why don't you just tell them that?> So who would be the best ruler in your opinion?

>>38819675>>38819714>What manner of creature is he?Might not wanna say "creature". Seems a tad disrespectful. Maybe "being" or something else.
>>38819712I don't see the problem? Not joining one just makes it easier for him to use them, since we can interact with all of them more freely.
>>38819712>wanting to join one after having only met two>>38819675Seconding
>>38819712Yeah and? We're already having to talk people out of waifuing or joining starter factions. This way we can actually choose who we join and get best results and gains.
*gasp* do not listen to them my ONI waifu my belle they only hunters
>>38819622 this is some really good tea so why don't you just tell them that?That's a bit rude isn't it? I mean they weren't ugly at all, just no like you or me So who would be the best ruler in your opinion?  why was one of your own ordering weapons a week ago?

>>38819782>This way we can actually choose who we join Nah, we will just sit around not joining anything until it hurts us royally then we will rush the the closest one.
>>38819892>Nah, we will just sit around not joining anything until it hurts us royally then we will rush the the closest one.>Implying implications.
>>38819892We haven't even met the majority.

>>38819918I focused on choices that are 'known' from monstergirl stuff, for the humanization.If he takes more freely from myths there are a lot more choices, of course.
>>38819622> Is there anything I can do for you?I want a mission.
"This is some good tea by the way, Lord akio" I say taking another sip of it"Ah yes, I used some of my best leaves for this batch of it" He says taking a sip and sighing as he puts the cup down "I'm glad you enjoy it so""So what race or clan does emperor come from?" I ask taking another sip"Oh, an old breed" he says "even when I was young they were mostly a memory, I doubt many know he even was not unique once, but the closest thing he is to from where you come from, a dragon, and as far as well all know, the last of the eastern ones""A dragon?" I gasp "I didn't know what I thought he was, but I never thought a dragon, that's amazing""Yes, but sadly, his light fades" He says sadly "So which would be the best to rule in your opinion?" I ask "Hmm, well all of us are to grounded in traditons and I cannot trust myself with such power" He sighs "Oh if only there was some noble around here with new and shiny ideas, but alas there is not""Oh" I say "But I don't think they'd accept me as a ruler, I'm a foreigner after all""Clever clever" He chuckles "thought I was hoping you'd get what I was implying""Can Helga sit down, I mean she is my friend and I really don't like seeing her standing around" I ask taking a sip of tea.He nods, and Helga sighs and sits next to me."Do you want some tea?" he asks herShe shakes her head, he nods"So why don't you just tell the crimson fangs you want peace?" I ask"because, even though my magic is very strong, one bump to the head from them, and I am history" He says "all it takes it is one over enthusatic oni, to kill me, and ruin two centuries of planning, however if they did not kill me and some how accepted it, there would be parties on both sides seeing to tear the alliance apart"cont
>>38820087What do I say?Well thank you for you hospitality but I must go And why would you want me to rule? I could tell them, So, tell me why they really hate you, and I might go along with your plan  Maybe it's there leader who's the problem What do you think about me then? write in

>>38820110> And why would you want me to rule?> I could tell them,> So, tell me why they really hate you, and I might go along with your planSo.. Who's up for working out how to transform into a dragon?
>>38820209The question is, a eastern or western one?Pretty sure Hatman could make the latter happen.
>>38820209I am. I mean, as far as legitimacy for ruling goes taking the form of the previous ruling line goes a long way.Not to mention it highlights us as an independent party from the 7 clans.
>>38820209Find one and drink it's blood. Or hope hatman gives out the tf as a gift.
>>38820209I just want to become something.
>>38820226Either works for me. It might actually be the case that we'd become a western one by virtue of being a westerner, rather than through the means which transformed.
>>38820110> And why would you want me to rule?> I could tell them,> So, tell me why they really hate you, and I might go along with your plan If you want me to somehow help you you need to let me know what's the delio> What do you think about me then?> write inI hope whatever I help you with proves I'm worthy to know the secret of the Silver Tail transformation secret
>>38820262>know the secret of the Silver Tail transformationAnon, we are way past Kitsune, we are talking Dragon right now.
>>38820286Wait, wait, hear me out:- Fluffy dragon -
>>38820286Dragons are something that were around before hatman and his kin first came here. Hatman wouldn't be able to turn you into oneand you'd need the heart of a live one to turn into oneAnd no one would side with you if you ate the emperor's heart and then declared yourself the new boss of this continent
>>38820110> And why would you want me to rule?> What do you think about me then?>Well thank you for you hospitality but I must go>>38820311love it
>>38820311>- Chimera dragon -Ftfy
>>38820324>And no one would side with you if you ate the emperor's heart and then declared yourself the new boss of this continentBy the time we could actually pull this off, I'm not sure it would matter anymore if they agreed or not.
>>38820324Would Chimera empress make us a reasonable facsimile?
>>38820324What if we befriended the emperor and he gave us his heart? Would it work even though he's old? Or does the heart have to be from a young dragon?
>>38820324>has dragons in his transformation allowing quest>doesn't let us transform into a dragonWay to spoil my fun HM. You could have at least let us dream.
>>38820324No but wait, what if the Emperor himself approved this and gave us his heart in order to continue his race?We just need to become worthy in his eyes.
>>38820324On a second thought, couldn't he give us his heard once he is on his deathbed so we can preserve the peace in the realm?
>>38820363>>38820392>>38820398I love you guys.
"I could tell them, but you'd have to tell me two things first" I say folding my hands together."Oh, and what would those two things be?" He asks "Amelia crawlby?""Why you want me to rule in the first place" I ask "I mean you'd have to think highly to even think about putting me in rule, and we just met""Oh you're still young and not tied down to any old grudges, you could if you take the throne, become a very great emperorrrress" He says smiling "But you'd need to show that you were wise enough to keep all of this under control, right?""Okay, that makes sense actually" I say "I think, but I have one more thing to ask you before I think about agreeing to this""And what would that be?" he asks"Why do the crimsons fangs really hate you?" I askHe nearly chokes on his teas, coughing and sputtering madly as he quickly wipes his mouth and smiles again, before frowning."All of you out" He says "and I do mean all of you except our guests, if I find any of you eavesdropping I shall execute you personally as a traitor to our clan, understand?"Kiki grabs Helga, and rushes out the door with the other two.Lord Akio sighs and looks at the ceiling, folding his hands together."Should've known you'd see through my lie" He sighs "But this must never leave this room, only the emperor, me, and some of the older fangs know about this"I nod, sipping my tea as he begins to talk."I used to be human" he says "until I decided I didn't want to die tending fields or becoming lunch to something else, so I may have ended up lying to the crimson fangs, saying I would join them long long ago, to steal something of theirs to create...to create my clan and my race, for we are not naturally born in this world, as you now a ritual is what makes us, while we can birth our own normally, we are not something that was born form the world, and If I hear any one but the fangs talking about this, I will have you killed and your liver served at my next feastcont
>>38820492This dude trusts us an awful lot.Or he's suuuuuper wily and doesn't think we'd mention this to anyone else, thereby we'd never find out that his lie is just that.
>>38820492>emperorrrressShould we be worried he was about to say "emperor" and corrected himself?>>38820519The lie might be the story, or the fact that he doesn't want people to know.
>>38820492I am sorry for threatening you, but this secret must be kept by few, and do so hate those who are dishonest to others"I stare at him, and drop my cup of tea as I try and not scream out in a panic or fear as he just smiles at me as he always does, taking a sip of tea. He..he's really dangerous, I didn't think he'd be just like Kiki said, but..but he is "Now, is there anything else you'd like to discuss, Lady Crawlby" he says friendlyWhat do I say? would the emperor give me his heart if he thought I'd rule well? M..marcuss *cry* Why did you do that? I'll do it thenI need to goand you won't tell me the ritual?! I think I need some fresh air right now write in
>>38820551> I'll do it thenHow would we know we need his heart IC?
>>38820551> I'll do it thenGotta keep up our end of the bargain.
>>38820551> would the emperor give me his heart if he thought I'd rule well?> Why did you do that?>and you won't tell me the ritual?!
>>38820566She has books about monsters and myths
>>38820551> I'll do it then>I thank you for your trust
>>38820533>worryI'm guessing he wants to shadow rule with us.>>38820551> Why did you do that?> would the emperor give me his heart if he thought I'd rule well?We can cry once we're far enough away>>38820571I guess we learned it when we read that book last night
>>38820551> would the emperor give me his heart if he thought I'd rule well?>and you won't tell me the ritual?!We can still be hybrid for now until we get the heart.>I need to goDon't cry, cry...
>>38820566Like that would stop them. Powergamers never really mind metagaming.
>>38820551> I'll do it then> would the emperor give me his heart if he thought Anyone of the prospective would be rulers would actually rule well?>Thank you for the trust.
>>38820551> I'll do it thenLets not talk with him about our plans of cannibalizing his emperor right now, alright?
>>38820551> would the emperor give me his heart if he thought I'd rule well?> and you won't tell me the ritual?!Don't care if he wants to take it for himself, someone would just kill him before he eats it anyway.
>>38820551> I'll do it then> Why did you do that?
>>38820551> I'll do it then
>>38820595"Hurr they don't wanna be a fox like me, they must be metagaming powergamers!"
>>38820551> Why did you do that?> I'll do it then
>>38820608>our plans of cannibalizing>This is totally in character.
>>38820582Makes sense, I guess.Wouldn't have thought it would include something so esoteric.
>>38820645I am fine with not going fox, but this whole lets be a super special snowflake sue chimera dragon thing has no in character justification.
>>38820653Our Amelia is a kind and brave girl, if its for the greater good. She would do it.>>38820672>lets be a super special snowflake sue chimera dragon thing has no in character justificationIt has about as much as any transformation. I see no reason why she couldn't think about using all transformation options, clearly we thought about it, and we have the same amlount of informaion as she does.
>>38820672Firstly, not everyone wanting dragon is interested in the chimera aspect of things.Secondly, there's definitely justification for wanting to be a dragon IC. She wants power and revenge on the people who killed her father and had an interest in dragons anyway, it being one of the first things she reads in a book about monsters.
>>38820672>super special snowflake sue chimera dragon>if I call it a negatively associated buzzword, they will have to stop liking what I don't like!
>>38820713Explain to me how that "buzzword" is not applicable and I'll take it back if you can convince me that being eight different types of monstergirl isn't sue as fuck.
It's all about the vengeance all along.
"Uh, I read in a book I have that if you eat a dragon's heart you could become one" I say "would the emperor give me his heart if he thought I was a good successor?""You'd have to convince the other clans that you are in your right to rule first" He says "and even then he may simply deny you it for some reason known only to him""Oh, that's good I thought it would've been the way you crown new emperors" I say laughing nervously as he continues the smile at me "that makes me feel a lot better about this plan""So you'll do it then?" He asks smiling widely"of course" I say "I'll try at least""Wonderful" He says smiling "oh I simply must hold a feast now, to celebrate our mutual agreement""But tell me one more thing" I say "why did you do all that in the first place'"I told you, I did not want to die as a farmer or a meal" he says "so I gave myself power, and I deserve, do I not?"I scootch away from him slightly .What do I do? ask if you could be both oni and fox spirit Leave and go (tell the fangs to try and get peace/ tell them the secret/ go to the boat/ explore the castle) Ask him something else Ask him about the ritual write in
>>38820765> Ask him about the ritual> ask if you could be both oni and fox spirit
>>38820765> Leave and go (tell the fangs to try and get peace>>38820749>Explain to me how that "buzzword" is not applicableI fail to see how it applies at all?We wouldn't be anymore a snowflake than we already are, being a unique variation among a common group (humans).And how is it more "sue" than having attracted the attention of Hatman and recieving his gifts to begin with?
>>38820765> Ask him something elseAsk if we must become a fox spirit if we are to assist in his plans. If he says yes, say we have reservations about being able to maintain our appearance of neutrality if we were to do that, etc> Ask him about the ritual
>>38820765> Leave and go (tell the fangs to try and get peace
>>38820749Oh just fuck off. You can say that you don't like it, but if its a perfectly viable opportunity then it is. There is no reason other than personal taste to not use multiple powers if we actually can. >>38820765> ask if you could be both oni and fox spirit> Ask him about the ritual
>>38820765> Leave and go (tell the fangs to try and get peace> ask if you could be both oni and fox spirit>>38820794>Ask if we must become a fox spirit if we are to assist in his plansWe already know we don't, obviously he would have told us.
>>38820765> Leave and go to tell the fangs to try and get peace
>>38820765> ask if you could be both oni and fox spirit> Leave and go, tell the fangs to try and get peace
>>38820787If I was D/GMing a game and someone handed me a character sheet for a oni-kitsune-tengu-firetiger-dragon-jorogumo-kappa-crane. I would throw it out and tell them to pick two at most.
>>38820765 ask if you could be both oni and fox spirit
>>38820765> Ask him about the ritualDon't need to let him know all we plan to do (both oni and fox spirit)
>>38820845Yeah, chimera is a bit crazy and would really creep the shit out of everything else.
>>38820845Obviously its not something to start out with, we need to work hard to make it possible, its just collecting power like you would normally collect magical items.
If we go oni we should get a different weapon.
>>38820765> ask if you could be both oni and fox spirit
>>38820765> Leave and go tell the fangs to try and get peace
>>38820880Thank you. I was the first one to say it, and it was meant to be a joke on how bad of an idea it would be.
>>38820914No you weren't.
>>38820914I'm not sure why you thank him?Do you think it being a bit crazy would make people stop wanting it?
>>38820922I doubt I dreamed it.
>>38820976I was the one who brought up the power-brew idea.And while I was joking at the time, I'm actually somewhat partial to the idea now.
>>38820966Nah, just wanted to establish that.
>>38820994I didn't know I had multiple personality disorder.
>>38820995Establish what, that Chimera would freak people out? Well, no shit. I would think thats fairly obvious.They can get used to it.
>>38821038>I would think thats fairly obvious.>/tg/
>>38821032I assume you were the one who posted the "mix fox tail and oni horn".
"One more thing before I leave" I say as I set the teacup down and stand up "do you think someone could become both an oni and a fox spirit?""Hmmm" He says scratching his chin "Well I suppose it would be possible though it could tear a human apart from the sheer stress of it on their bodies, but then again, it could work couldn't it"I shrug and walk out the door. I look around the hall and See Kiki and Helga walking down it from a different room."I won't ask you what my lord said, but please get this one out of here, she's been annoying me with her constant attempts to touch my tails" Kiki says pushing a blushing Helga forward"But you said You'd let mi'lady touch your tails" She says sounding dejected and embarressedKiki blushes and puts one of their masks over her face."Just get out" She sighs as she walks away.Helga tries to avoid looking me in the eye and just plays with her hair and collar as I try to. I sigh and walk down into the main hall and out the front door and back towards the gate and around the bath and down the hill leading up to it. I continue walking down and cover my eyes with my hands as I seem to have misplaced my ribbon as I walk through the grove, hearing that something from before moving about, no doubt waiting for me to see it so it can tear my eyes out, I shiver as I think about how scary it must look as I walk out of the grove and back into the box. it slowly desends and the fox spirit outside bows to me as I walk off over to the the forest where the crimson fangs liveA while later.I manage to drag myself to the door, Helga panting as she tries to keep up with me as I force myself to stumble forward, before sitting down in front of the door panting."Oi, it's the little human again" One of the fangs call outthe door swings open and I'm suddenly in the air. I look over and see the face Of Dra'kal staring at me again.I blink and look around, I'm the courtyard again.cont
>>38821038Think of how much racism happens over someone looking a bit different.Now add god knows how many monstergirls into the chimera mixing pot.
If only we were able to transform back and forth and combine more than two races with their powers. Some kind of device maybe or shapeshifter Actually I did, but whats the point of admitting it if you can't prove it
>>38821100>Think of how much racism happens over someone looking a bit different.I haven't seen that anywhere in this story yet, when did that happen?
>>38821070I know I posted something like that early on as well.
>>38821099"What made you collapse outside of our home?" he asks sounding a bit cross "Nothing I just walked a bit too far and got a bit tired" I say as he drops me on the ground the second I say nothing, I groan and stand up, rubbing the dirt of my clothes "WHAT WAS THAT FOR?""if you aren't injured I have no reason to carry you" He says flatly "No reason to carry a perfectly healthy person, now is there?"I look up at him and he scratches his beard."though I guess our ways aren't your ways so I should have just set you down, gently" He says shrugging "sorry about that""There's no need to be" I say forcing I smile "but I need to tell you something"He grunts and looks down at me, all the other crimson fangs turning to look at me as well, stopping in the middle of their what appears to be lunchWhat do you say to try and convince them? write in
>>38821146>Racism isn't a theme in this quest. >Trolls are workers and nobles from our homeland are all human.Captcha: se oni
>>38821179>The leader of the silver tails wants peace with you. There is no need for shedding blood against eachother and having the rest of the people suffer under a feud that doesn't serve anyone. Even if either of you could win, the remaining one will be forced to submit to one of the other warring Clans in their weakened state. Do you want that? Would you rather be at peace, or even allied with a Clan you disagree with, or be subjugated by a different one?
>>38821219What do full trolls do?
>>38821179Give piece a chance or you gonna git gitmoed nigga!
>>38821201How is that racism?The humans established that kingdom, so obviously the nobility would be human.And there wasa half-troll among our potential handmaidens, which makes it pretty clear racism isn't a big thing here.You fail to provide a actual example of racism being a thing in this setting. Let alone in this region.
>>38821179>"Firstly, how's Na'kal doing?">"Glad to hear it. Well then, onto the main topic... I've just finished talking with the leader of the Silver Tails. No, don't look at me like that. Listen, he's keen on a truce between your clans."
>>38821260>How is that racism?Are you fucking kidding me? P.S. I am not even saying don't do it, I am just saying that racism will probably be a factor. (through we are getting WAY ahead of ourselves here).
>>38821201How is that racism? Let alone makes racism a "theme in this quest" considering we haven't even really met a troll, let alone seen anyone be racist against one.
>>38821300Do I really need to explain how a racial based caste system is racist?
>>38821179This sounds good >>38821230
>>38821296>Are you fucking kidding me?No, please explain to me how it is?Clearly nobility is hereditary, so if the kingdom was established by humans, every noble would likely be human.How is that racism? If you could prove half-trolls are actively prevented from becoming morte than worker, than you might have a point. But we have no indication thats the case.At all. Let alone that it was made a topic anywhere in the quest.>>38821325Except there is no indication of any caste system?
>>38821360Hey headmaster, could a half troll become a noble in our homeland?
>>38821325Do you know what a caste system is?Because medival feudality is not a caste system.
>>38821378If you need to ask that kind of proves it wasn't actually a matter in the quest, and therefore not a "theme int his quest", since it hasn't been shown anywhere yet. Which was your claim, that we have been shown racism based on looks in this quest.
>>38821360>Clearly nobility is hereditary, so if the kingdom was established by humans, every noble would likely be human.How is that racism?Go back to /pol/.
>>38821179> write in"I'm a neutral party just to let everyone know I have no quarrels with anyone in this land, I just came from speaking with the leader of the Silver Tails and he want to talk terms of peace. I have no home since it was taken from me, so I want to make this my new home and see it flourish from the depths of civil war and greed. Let us start a new begging and forget the past, I do whatever I can to make it happen."
>>38821405>Asking a question means you are wrong.>implying /tg/ has decent reading comprehension. Dude it's just the easiest way to settle this, neither of us are an authority on it so lets ask the authority.
>>38821411What the fuck are you even talking about? That isn't fucking racism. Fucking trolls baiting up this quest
>>38811569"No, I'M agreeing with YOU!"
"Well I had a little talk the lord of the silver tails" I sayDra'kal stares down at me, his expression unchanging as are the faces of the rest of the fang."mmmhmm" He says nodding"Well he said he wanted peace and Honestly I agree with him since to me this feud between the two of your clans seems a bit pointless" I sayI hear some of the fangs sharpen their blades. while others shake their heads and go back to doing what they were before. I Look at my feet and take a deep breath and look Dra'kal back in his eyes. He stares down at me, his face unchanging as he nods again."Because all it seems to be doing is just cause suffering for suffering, and not just among you but the people who aren't in clan or are nobles" I say "and that isn't right, it just isn't"One of the fangs opens their mouth to speak but Dra'kal silences him with a stare."Continue" He says nodding solemnly "I do want to hear what ya have to say about this, honestly I do" "And even if one of you wins all that will do is let you be walked over by the other clans while weakened" I say "and then you'd be either forced to bend to their will or ...k..killed""Yeah right, ya saying those pompous pricks won't just use as for all the heavy lifting while they sit around and get everything they want to?!" A human crimson fang shouts, causing some of the crowd to cheer and to hoot with joy "I say she's been with em all along!""I said let her speak" Dra'kal growls "or do you want to make me mad?""Would it be better to work with an old enemy most of you don't remember why you hate or to be forced to work under those that you never cared about enough to actually hate?" I ask "I am neutral here, I have no home unlike you do, and it hurts me to thin you'd tear apart yours because you can't look past your old hatreds"The crimson fangs goes silent. Dra'kal sighs.cont
....I don't even know what the fuck is going on anymore......
>>38821179>>38821230seconding this btw.Got sidetracked.>>38821300>considering we haven't even really met a troll, let alone seen anyone be racist against one.On that note, I'm still sad we didn't get the half-troll maid. She sounded adorable.But so did Helga, most difficult decision in the quest.
>>38821546Same here, I really do wish we had the half-troll girl. Buuut, we might not have ever made it to here without Helga's boat, so theres that I guess.
>>38821546>Picking a side character is harder then picking the main character.
>>38821573We probably would have had to flee somewhere else.I mean, I like Helga. But still.>>38821574I honestly didn't care much either way about the MC choices, all of them sounded decent to me.I just felt bad for her.
>>38821596>We probably would have had to flee somewhere else.A lot of our choices that didn't seem important turned out to actually be important.
>>38821541I honestly think that some people are arguing just to argue.
>>38821617We had the option to flee into the city, I'm sure we wouldnt have bad ended for taking the wrong handmaid.Probably had fled to her relatives, and Marcus also had a plan to get us out.
>>38821537"I'd ask my dad what he'd do about this" he says sadly "but to be honest, the old bastard kicked the bucket last night, just suddenly died, now of course I can think of one clan who would do that, since he hated them more than any of us, but honestly, he's dead, he can't be hurt by my choices any more, but my little siblings can, and I really don't want to have to dig a grave or help another brother learn how to be a sister"the rest of the crimson fangs stare at him, some dropping their weapons in shock and other just looking at him confused and slightly angry"THE FUCK YOU GAWKING AT?!" He shouts angrily "DO I LOOK LIKE MAH SISTERS, BECAUSE IF I DO THEN I HAVE TO KILL YA ALL FOR STARING AT HER"The rest of them look away and silently go back to what they were doing."that's what I thought, All of you better not be lookin at Ashi, ya hear" He shouts "But I don't think word will spread very fast though an emperor damn war, so we can at least hope none of us here will kill each other for awhile""Di..did you agree with all that just now?" I ask"Yeah, pain in my ass, but I don't care honestly, it's all just a bunch of bull crap anyways" He says "though I know we won't have real peace for a while, but it's a start, I guess"I stare at him, shocked and more than a little surprised as he smiles and begins to laughAnything else you want to do before this session ends? write in
>>38821643Nah but winding up in the east is a lot different then say hanging out in the woods with some hunters.
>>38821658Also the only reason this worked was because of the fact the speech you guys came up with was really thought out well
>>38821658>Get chewed out by Marcus for running away without him>And then eat that fish.
>>38821658>apologise to Marcus
>>38821658>Thank him for giving this a chance, we sincerly hope for all of them, and us, that this peace will hold>Thank Helga for accompanying in that dangerous meeting and staying by our side
>>38821658"Hey Marcus, I brokered peace while I was gone."
>>38821658>Thank Helga for accompanying us in that dangerous meeting and staying by our side
>>38821658Now I'm wondering how many of his sisters have always been sisters.
>>38821749I wonder how this all would have gone if we would have taken Marcus with us this morning.
>>38821658Well since we convince lets see if we can take it up a notch, see if we can ask to have them swear loyalty for us, convince them with your mind we can lead everyone under one banner. Let him know that the Silver tails don't know about this part.
"thank you for at least trying to make peace" I say "I hope you all well, and I hope it lasts, but I need to go back to my ship before marcus gets angry at me, and Helga, thank you for coming along with me"Helga groans weakly and nods in my direction as she sits on against the gate gasping for air."Well don't hope for much, it will probably break soon anyways" Dra'kal says yawning "well I'm going to sleep now, but You are by far the wisest little human I've ever met, but I warn ya, don't trust Akio, when I wake up I'll talk to him myself and see if we can get the tails of the ones who beat Na, aight?""YEAH" the crimson fangs cheer in unison as I walk away.Later"So, why were you out so long, you know how much I was worrying about you" Marcus says smiling as he peels a potato in front of me"Well I wanted to explore and then I ended up talking to the silver tail's leader and" I say "I think I made them have peace at least for a little while?""Who, the fangs and the tails, I thought they hated eachother" he says laughing "how'd you do that""I don't know I just talked to them and the leader of the fangs said he agreed with me" I say "Wow, that is hilarious in a way" He laughs as he continues to peel a potatoand we'll end hereI'll archiveand be around to answer questionHopefully next thread the title will mean something>>38821749All onis are born male, except for ones turned into onis via other meansbut he used to have three brothers, now he has one
So, uh, this quest still isn't the place for it so this will be my only comment on the matter but I finished reading up the latest UMGQ thread.Figures it'd be the thread that I'm absent for that people decide to pick a fight with a final boss.Anyway Headmaster, the people accusing you of railroading or interpreting the double 20's wrong or just whining in general can all get bent. You made it perfectly clear that there would be repercussions and I'm glad you followed through with them.Semi-seriously: Maybe a couple more similar occurrence and the shitty players could be driven off for good.
>>38821829Also your guile and Reps with both factions have raised one tick since honestly didn't expect something that profound and it was in character as well for the time being
>>38821829>Hopefully next thread the title will mean somethingNever!Its my personal goal to finish this quest a fully human girl.And still be empress.Just by sheer cunning and diplomacy. And manners.Thanks for running, I had a lot of fun finding out more about this setting.
>>38821829...Has he been peeling potatoes ALL DAY?
>>38821855thank you for waiting till the end of the thread
>>38821829I would of thought hatman would of noticed our superior peace negotiations
>>38821829Thanks for the thread HM.Could you tell us what the other Clans are, or do you prefer to keep that secret for now?
>>38821865there were a lot of fucking potatoes.
>>38821882So, how many opportunities to impress Hatman have we already avoided?
>>38821872He may appear next thread, he is watching other people, you know>>38821877only the tails are mono raced, but the others do have more of some races than others, though I'll need to study to make sure I do them rightish, by that I mean not competently wrong
>>38821872I don't think he is into peace.Maybe if we would have driven them to slaughter eachother once and for all, that would have probably gotten his attention.
>>38821897Some how managing to save your fatherKilling either of the clan leaders around here or managing to make the peasants rebel against them
But honestly, I expected you to use the horn or join the tails by nowand also expected you to piss off the Fangs by not saying the right things, which you managed to do, also if the old leader didn't die yesterday, it wouldn't have worked because of his massive hate boner for them, real nice that he died of completely natural causes like that
>>38821913True, but how about we negotiate and use our guile to become the leaders of both factions. We can tell The Silver Tail leader is dangerous, maybe have him killed...
>>38821942>real nice that he died of completely natural causes like thatHow polite of him.
>>38821950Because the crimson fangs have always been led by a bonechewer, so unless you get to join their family some how not gonna happenAnd because Akio is the only leader they've ever had, so him suddenly vanishing from the picture would be a problem since he is one of the few of them that wanted peace between the two of them and he has MAGICAL POWAH
>>38821942>real nice that he died of completely natural causes like thatHow convenient it just so happened to happen shortly after we arrived and got foot in with the Onis.So, how long will this peace last you think? Three hours?
>>38821953he did not choke to death on a poison in his bed next to his wife who used to be his most hated rivalnoooope
>>38821950>how about we negotiate and use our guile to become the leaders of both factionsThats the plan, isn't it?Obviously not right now, but if this peace lasts, they will be very much inclined to support our ascension to the imperial throne as the compromise candidate.
>>38821981I'm glad he didn't, sure would have made poor Amelia feel awful.
>>38822001I'm pretty sure even Helga got the "completly natural causes" implication.What I want to know is, what else we could have done with the fish.
>>38822001She was more scared out of her wits at the time to really register what he saidalso fun fact, hat man went to both Kiki and Dra'kal, and tried to push them along to somethingOnly reason Dra'kal isn't angry as fuck right now is because five seconds after he learned his last brother was captured, he walked back home, only missing one hornand Kiki well, she got freaked out by him and then when the oni he spoke of came in, he was drunk and didn't kill or even hurt anyone too bad
>>38821969Well we can take advantage of the brother who has a liking to us and Akios secret could be a great benefit for us we just need crimson fangs on our side first just in case shit goes south.>>38822001If she ever found out, could make her feel betrayed and have her change a we bit
>>38822048I see no reason to kill Akio, considering he is a valuable asset and, at least for now, wants the same thing we do.He doesn't benefit from sabotaging us, and we got pretty strong leverage over him.Rule of the clan, even if we could get it, would be a huge hassle, and would mean becoming the direct target of other Clans.
>>38822048>If she ever found out, could make her feel betrayed and have her change a we bitAmelia is not that naive, I'm pretty sure she will piece it together by herself what most likely happened.I doubt she made a deal with assassins not expecting they kill people.
>>38822093Well the silver Tails are know for their cleverness, I think, Akio could just be using us for his own benefit and he just gave out a weird vibe in our conversation. That dude is very dangerous and smart.
>>38822133>Akio could just be using us for his own benefitI'm absolutely certain he does. But the answer to such manipulation is not always "AMELIA SMASH", especially since we really really need allies, especially dangerous and smart ones, beggars can't be choosers. And as long as he has plans for us, he won't be trying to kill us.
>>38822133It seems fairly obvious to me he plans to double-cross us when we try to take the throne.He genuinly wants peace with the red fangs, since he probably can't win a outright war with them and hope to survive the civil war.And his Clan is too small and apparently not well respected, so he has no chance at the throne personally as it currently stands.So either he wants to rule through Amelia, or he has some plan to sacrifice us when it comes to picking the successor.
>>38822152We need allies until we forge our own and what if the plan for us is a short one just for the crimson fangs, who knows? Why not take over the crimson fangs and have some of the Silver Tails turn to our side or start questioning their leader, be two steps ahead instead behind.So Only the old fangs know about his secret, lets go double check his story with some of them. >>38822186He wants peace to manipulate or outright destroy it from the inside out, never know if its a long term plan
>>38822238>Why not take over the crimson fangs and have some of the Silver Tails turn to our sideecause that all are things far outside of our ability to do, unless we sacrifice a lot for it. And I don't see the advantage in tying us down to any Clans at this point. I think the reputation of a impartial neutral position will be far better for us when we travel the land and need to interct and gain favour with the other Clans.No leader will trust us if we start taking over other Clans.And we need their trust, because we can't go around forcing our way everywhere.
>>38822238Before you start killing possible allies and make strong commitments like leadership of a Clan, or even just membership, you need a very good reason for why this is necessary right now.No such reason exists. Whatever Akios plans are, its unlikely they involve our harm anytime soon.Sure its a risk, going to his castle to begin with was a equally large risk.There will alwys be people you have to deal with you can't trust. You can't trust most people, killing all of them is not a option. Outsmarting them is far more beneficial.
>>38822265We can still have the image of a neutral position and control the clans, for example it seems like down the road we can start convincing/manipulating Dra'kal to start following our decisions. I still think Akio is too much of a threat even early on, we can just have his clan against him and put someone who will listen to us in command and have the "neutrality" >>38822309>No such reason exists. Whatever Akios plans are, its unlikely they involve our harm anytime soon.That's why we need to dig deeper to uncover the truth while making plans for the inevitable.
>>38822448>it seems like down the road we can start convincing/manipulating Dra'kal to start following our decisionsI doubt it. And most importantly, even if we could. it would require us to stay close to Dra'kal, which is not a option.We want to travel around, afterall.
