has nin actually met her mom here yet?Or did she successfully distract us?
Drunken moths, apparently, sleep much like drunken spiders.Which is to say that they may as well be dead, limbs and bodies flopping about as you move them, snoring loudly and never waking.You're hit with a minor temptation- Piling them up would be so easy. You could make a little moth pyramid, or curl them up and build a fluffy snowman...Unfortunately, you rather enjoyed the drinks, and Nin would probably like to return home every once in a while. You resist, your will strong against all odds!Probably not, but you manage yourself this time, at least. You make it clear of your moth burial, picking up and depositing a groggy wolf onto your shell, and just carting Nin around like an oversized doll. The village is quiet- The sun is definitely lower than it was, but still somewhere near midday, you think.A bit of scuttling is enough to rouse your friends as you search the village for someone sober and awake, a chorus of voices whispering and wincing in sync with one another."Nnnnn- Lyraaaaaaa-""Good morning, Nin.""My heeeeead.""Welcome to drinking, yes."Sheszka and Ezzy are right behind her, the wolf curling further into a ball and whimpering at the light while the snake tightens around your neck, awake for once and trying to hide beneath your hair."Oh godssss, never again-""Alphaaaa, everything hurts!"You drag them in front of you, one by one, forcing each to drink water despite their complaints.And then you scoop up the moth, pile them back atop you, and scoot into the village, still on the lookout for people standing on their own.You manage to find your friend's father, bags under his eyes, sitting beneath his home with a cup of water in hand.He waves as you approach, squinting and smiling, even as his face twitches with pain. >Hangovers are not fun, yes.>Hello, is it still today?>Take your leave. Food isn't something you can find in the village.>Other(?)
>>39384184They met and hugged. It was a little after her siblings complained about her stealing all their growing.
>>39384204>>Hangovers are not fun, yes.>>Hello, is it still today?

Questions and answers! Writing!
We learned something very important last thread. Apparently souls are basically recycled after use, and we are the side effect of the universe failing to reset our soul to a factory state before sending us off. Which probably means we got some poor divine IT worker fired for incompetence! It does beg the question though, do souls get infinitely recycled between everybody or are they sent down from the awesome first world planes of existence (humanity fuk yeah) to the shitty third world planes of existence.
>>39384565no, we learned that spiders are an exception to fate because of our god.The reincarnation thing seems to be a separate mutli dimensional thing.
>>39384595>we learned that spiders are an exception to fate because of our godIs rather ambigious if thas actually the case, since at the same time she said that a 'linear' concept of fate like a web or strem is completly wrong anyway.So its not clear if the spider goddess going "fuck webs" actually did anything, or if it just informed a sort of cultural attitude.
>>39384637The end effect is the same overall.
It looked to be an effect of a single Arachne, somewhere between the beginning of Archne-kind and now, saying "Fuck your web!" And then proceeded to be a Goddess.I wish that could be our path as well. So that we could create spider-Sunbutt w/ harpy-Moonbutt pantheons.
>>39384673Not quite, because the difference is if spider are actually immune to predestination, or if there is no such thing to begin with.Its definitly relevant if others are controlled by fate or not.
>>39384723>And then proceeded to be a Goddess.The way she said it it didn't sound as if the spider-goddess became goddess through that.She already was and then said, "fuck webs".
I had a whole in depth reason but 4chan considered it spam due to my analogy and ate the post, crashing My browser app in the process. So tldr: no, all the spider goddess did was make her own fate pool thing, with hookers and blackjack
>>39384565We already knew about the reincarnation thing OOC. We're just a one in a billion fluke that remembers a past life.We still don't know this IC because Lyra was black out drunk and doesn't remember her little vision quest.She'll have figured out the basics, because it's fairly obvious. But would know even fewer details than us.>>39384637>So its not clear if the spider goddess going "fuck webs" actually did anything, or if it just informed a sort of cultural attitude.Well, the little spider that was apparently the Goddess of Fate or something /said/ the Spider Goddess wrecked the system and unbound the Arachne from the strings of Destiny.So unless a superior expert says differently, I'd lean towards the "fuck webs" really having done something.
>>39384723>And then proceeded to be a Goddess.She said "your goddess saw it", which makes it pretty clear she already was spider goddess by that time.
>>39384786So... we're already a Goddess and now all we need to do is realise that destiny? Do we die or something for that to happen?
>>39384786We could always pull a mothfia and snort the very essence of evolution.
Speaking of elaborate dream sequences, where the heck is Dr. Unoriginal? Dude sort of disappeared.
>>39384840The asscancer got em
>>39384840Didn't he bleed to death out of his ass or something?
>>39384820I have no idea where you get the idea we are a goddess. we are just a regular arachne that just didn't get her soul properly scrubbed clean, as far as we know.>>39384800>I'd lean towards the "fuck webs" really having done somethingThats the ambigious part, the way she said we have our goddess to blame for not having a place in destiny implies it did something, but that doesn't really make sense if fate isn't a linear binding thing to begin with.
>>39384840Fucking Fume Knight man
>>39384786Well, she said the Spider Goddess woke up in the web, just like we did, then proceeded to say LOLNOPE to Fate.Soooo.... Having woken up in the web could mean a lot of things.She could have been a mortal Arachne that had just ascended to Godhood.Or maybe the Arachne race had grown to believe in a deity of some sort and wished her into existence.Maybe a Higher God just created her.Or something else?
I guess we could always ask the OP if we get really desperate for an answer/the shitstorm gets too large.
>>39384877Isn't fume knight dating dream salvia? Who may or may not just be another meta level of the grand play?
>>39384902The quests run by ScrewHue are basically non-canon meta-bullshit. Take it any way you like, take it with a hit of cannabis, line of cocaine. quart of Salvia, or whatever your narcotic of choice is.
>>39384887Might simply be a "at the beginning of the arachne/spiders"-thing.
>>39384887>Or maybe the Arachne race had grown to believe in a deity of some sort and wished her into existence.>The Arachne race willed a blustering bumbling stuttering goddess into existence to represent them.
>>39384928You have to make good on your promises.
>>39384945>blustering bumbling stuttering goddessNothing really implies anything besides the "blustering" and I can totally buy that one.
You offer a little wave back, a piteously groaning moth under one arm."Hello, yes. Is it still today?"He laughs once, winces, and smiles up at you from his spot on the ground."Only a few hours.""It seemed like longer.""You drank a lot.""I am simply larger, yes? It just takes more.""Suit yourself.""Mm."You let the silence grow for half a moment before you interrupt again."I do not suppose that hangover dust is a thing?""You had quite a bit of that already, I think.""The opposite sort of dust, please.""If I had that sort of thing, I'd never stop making it."You sigh, resting your forehead against your free hand while your friends complain about the sun."I like the drink very much, yes. The hangover, not so much.""Gods, I know that feeling."You crack your neck, that much easier with Ezzy clinging behind your head rather than lying beneath your chin."Well, I cannot be long then. Too many things to do.""Left everything till right before you leave, huh?""Sssh. I am a responsible adult, yes?"He laughs again, and you all collectively flinch.>I will be going, then.

Mother, bears, breakfast. Writing!
>>39384928>>39384980Say, don't you think ScrewHue is really HueHueHue?
>>39385243Nope, HueHueHue ran like a bitch after NewHue delivered for him. ScrewHue is some other guy who stepped in for a good time.
>>39385260Wait, is there actually a namefag, ScrewHue? I thought that Snake Quest was run by Dr. Unoriginal.
>>39385284NewHue made the LyraxNin smutScrewhue run a joke FumeKnight quest inside of snake questsWhere the fuck is my Smut HueHueHue
>>39385310>>39385260>>39385284That's the reson people noone would assume he would fag as someone named ScrewMe.Well either that or he really run of and I somehow pity him...Is it okay to feel bad for Hue?
>>39385310There was a snakexspider smut pastebin. In the Snake quest, the QM even put it under 'paid debt' at the start of the thread-ish.
>>39385353>Is it okay to feel bad for Hue?He is allowed sympathy once he delivers
>>39385310Ah, still doesn't answer my question about Unoriginal, though. Hope he didn't die out of his butt, as some people insist.As for the Hue thing, does that mean you are asking him to write the same scene over again?>>39385353As for this, I dunno. Follow your conscience. Didn't really read into when the promise was made, but generally when someone offers something gratis, it takes the wind out of your sails for being irritable when they don't deliver.
>>39384978>>Find Nin's Mom, say goodbye.>Other (?)EXTRACT FIZZY DRINK POWDER FROM MOTHS
Ok guys as much as I love Snake-quest. I'm not Hue but I do owe debts. I think we should save our discussion until the next thread. Although they share the Re:Monster world these two quests are different and I feel like we are force bumping poor REQM's thread. Inb4 Doc.U died of his ass cancer and the next thread never comes.
>>39385442Well, recent iterations of this thread haven't exactly been hitting bump limit. I know about the whole, thread politice thing with not dragging discussions from one place to the other. Still, if not that, we'll need to find something to discuss that's actually not just "butts" this and "butts" that.
>>39385488Where the fuck is Mothia Guy when you need him
>>393854421) You're that fucker that promised AdventurerXSnek smut, yee?2) I understand and acquiesce.3) Got anything to talk about or should I just drop some OST links and we listen to some dope beats until OP comes back?
>>39385488Okay, how about ¨spiderbutt¨ and ¨snakebutt¨?>>39385442DON'T JINX ITAlso snakeXspider crossover when?
>>39384928I'll take some of that cyber drugs that turn you into /b/ or something
>>39385560Not gonna lie. The whole butts thing has run stale as a joke. At least I find it to pretty much do nothing for me anymore other than make me wonder why we don't have more to talk about.
>>39385488Well, I guess your right. Really I shouldn't be playing Quest Police Man and berating people. Its up to REQM to tell his players if he is bothered by them talking about the other Re: quests.>>39385532Yeah that's me, the panther battle/ horns vote actually gave me a good kicking point for me to write more. But not close to finished yet. Hopefully once my semester ends I will deliver. Drop the beats>>39385560Well if worse comes to worse I'm sure someone would take up the mantle. Even if it wouldn't be the same.
>>39385589Its because we arn't really doing anything. Just pottering about before we return little miss snake and then go for the winter foray.

>>39385621>>39385589yeah, we're basically tying up loose ends before heading out right now.I didn't realize how much of a responsibility all these friends who can't arrange their own rides is.
>>39385638That first one makes me picture Lyra freestyling with 4 pairs of shades on and a lotta bling.Maybe with Jin/Nin dancing in the background
>>39385681I don't know about freestyling, but I fully support getting 4 pairs of shades and bling.
"Ah. In any case, We will be going shortly, yes? Do you know where the little one's mother is?""I am an adult!"He looks at both of you with a lopsided smile, pointing further into the village."I'd imagine she's at the well, helping herself to some water. Take care of yourselves, alright?""I always do, yes.""She takes care of other people and gets herself hurt, actually.""Hush."You wander away, looking something like a spider-ghost- Jin and Sheszka have combined forces to pull a blanket over your skull to hide beneath, leaving you looking like you're floating. The show draws a few smiles from moths in the trees, people finally starting to wake and go about their business once more.You did something of a number on the village.Nin's mother is where she's supposed to be- Leaning against a stone well, dipping her cup into the bucket and throwing back cold water, or just dumping it on her head. You wonder if that actually works."Good afternoon.""Not bad at all. Maybe a bit too much drinking, but it's been a while since the village has gotten caught up in anything.""I am glad to be of service, yes.""Oh? And all that hiding behind your hands, too. The children will keep telling those stories, you know.""I am trying very hard not to think about it.""Mhm. And what can I do for you, Miss Spider?""Please tell me noone actually calls me that.""I will tell you no lies, little one."You grimace, sighing."We need to be on our way, yes.""I see. Nin?"You drop your friend to her feet, and she takes two steps forwards before wrapping her mother in a hug."I'll miss you, little one. Come visit again.""I love you, mommy."
>>39385704They stay like that for a little while, then they pull apart, smiling."I'll bring more stories home, I promise.""I'm sure everyone will like that very much.""And I'll convince Lyra to be queen, too-""No you won't."You're leaving the village a few minutes later, shielding your eyes with one hand, clattering into the forest beyond.And hungry.>Speeeeeed hunting. Maybe on the way to Ezzy's home? You should be able to make it.>Get something big and cook it. You can visit Ezzy's tomorrow.>Split up! Work hard, everyone!>Other (?)
>>39384742Given that the fateweaver mentioned fate attempting to grab people, destiny is still a thing.Trying to define whole fate strictly as the rivers is a wrong approach, but given that they have reputation as prophets, it still works to a degree. When spiders don't poke it.

>>39385711>>Speeeeeed hunting. Maybe on the way to Ezzy's home? You should be able to make itwe need food and it will be fun to sleep among the tiny snakes, especially when they all use us as a bed. Plus I don't trust having our friends hunt while hungover, doesn't sound like a good idea.

Rolled 56 (1d100)>>39385711> Speeeeeeed hunting.I want to find a dargon
>>39385260>>39385284>>393853101)Pretty sure Lyra-Nin smutanon didn't unveil himself2)ScreHue wrote Snek-Spider smut, got emboldened by anon praise to take up the namefagging and started doing FumeKnight stuff.
>>39385712>fateweaverDidn't notice but that's actually the short translation o the name of the god of fate in my setting
>>39385769You know, encouraging her to hunt her own meal is probably a good idea. Gotta get her gains somehow.>>39385812Every time I hear someone referred to as smut anon, it makes me giggle, because I already know of one Smut Anon from another quest.
So is Ezzy staying with her mom or coming to the elfland with us?
>>39385871I honestly hope she stays in the forest.But she will probably come with us.
Speeeeeedhunting it is!3d100, please!
Rolled 98, 50, 13 = 161 (3d100)>>39385923
>>39385871it really depends on what the snake specialists say.We're going for a confirmation meeting. "Hey, our snake fell asleep, does that mean she can't adventure?"
Rolled 36, 76, 98 = 210 (3d100)>>39385923Heeerewego!
Rolled 11, 57, 5 = 73 (3d100)>>39385923
>>39385904I'm kind of at a net neutral. She doesn't do much, so she doesn't take up much screen time. We get a few moments of off hilarity out of her that is actually, legitimately funny. At the same time, her role in this adventure most of the time could be better fulfilled by a necklace.
Rolled 84, 64, 84 = 232 (3d100)>>39385923

>>39385936>>39385940>>39385942>98, 76, 98We're good.
>>39385944That's because she is still small, once she evolves again, things will be better.Its just a problem right now because winter is setting in. So we are leaving her behind to hibernate for winter before we pick her up again and can go on the proper adventure.
Rolled 90, 3, 5 = 98 (3d100)>>39385966But... dice.
98 76 98Writing!
>>39385987>That's because she is still small, once she evolves again, things will be better.She is already in her first evolution, we don't know if it will actually get better, and it will take ungodly much time for her to evolve because she can't be risked to fight.
>>39386032we should start pokemon battling with her.
>>39386045The vicious maulings will continue until morale improves. I suggest pigs.
>>39385944I liked the idea of a story of her growing up and all that, but that is over. She evolved already, the opportunity is kinda missed in my eyes.>>39385987Better, but might not be good enough. We had hoped the same thing from her first evolution.
>>39386045We should have her fight from us, Then we'll combo evolve in spider medusas hybrid
>>39385855Yes these smutanons are like certain kinds of mushrooms in quests.
>>39385711So how close is Ezzys home to where we saw the freaky eyeball shadow monsters?
Guy who knows a bit about herpetology here, it probably wouldn't be the most healthy thing ever, but there is no reason ezzy shouldn't be able to go with us. Especially since we're heading to whats effectively the tropics. Worst case scenario (IRL logic scenario) it takes a few years off her lifespan that she earns back via evolving to a longer lived form.
>>39386100Pretty far away, a few days.
>>39386100Hey now, don't be mean, they left us offerings.
>>39386093Well, the one I'm thinking of is actually doing it for a smut quest, so slightly less strange, I suppose.
>>39386122There is also the fact that Lyra is pretty much a furnace, with a skullbutt shelter to guard against wind.Ezzy will be fine.
>>39386123Pity I was hoping we could find out what they were
>>39386122>but there is no reason ezzy shouldn't be able to go with usThe fact that it might be detrimental to her health is definitly a reason.Another would be that she could literally not do anything away from our neck for the entire journey. Whats the point?Ezzy isn't much of an adventurer, she just wanted to grow up. Now she has.
>>39386032>>39386063What got her to evolve was sending her out to hunt.So, get her to hunt regularly. One more evolution will probably make her large enough to be a serious threat to most monsters and can help beat the shit out of things with us.
>>39386122>>39386205all we're really doing is taking her to her family to say goodbye, and give her a chance to sign off for the winter if she wants.>>39386235and we should catch some more rabbits for her to hunt.
>>39386235>One more evolution will probably make her large enough to be a serious threat to most monstersSee no particular reason to assume thats the case, honestly.And just from regular small game hunting it will take months for her to evolve, at best.
>>39386205Its detrimental for reptile metabolism and kidney/liver function, an issue that would in reality become slightly more magnetized over and over again if she kept this up. Since shes not really awake all the time anyway, and since we've confirmed evolving lengthens your lifespan, I'd say the reward outweighs the damage. Its basically no different than being bitten by a wolf so we can get another evolution.
>>39386205There is a difference between evolving and growing up.Monsters are fully capable of sexual reproduction in the first stage of their evolution, assuming they have the bits necessary for it and have gone through puberty.Besides, we aren't going to drop her off, we are going so she can say goodbye and it let's us ask around to see if anyone has any experience with being TINYSNEK IN WINTER WONDERLAND.
>>39386260>I'd say the reward outweighs the damageWhat rewards?No seriously, what does Ezzy gain by it? She already evolved, she could lead a completly normal snake life now.Its not like she is particularly enthusiastic about traveling like Nin is.
>>39386278Ezzy isn't enthusiastic about traveling because Ezzy IS FUCKING LAZY and a fucking Forest Monster NEET.
>>39386278If she evolved again she'd gain more years than she'd lose from possibly being active more than her body is supposed to be active. Also I suspect we'll get to her village and find everyone asleep anyway.
>>39386258So long as she gets proficient and fast, there is no reason not to rig up some slightly larger game to help speed it up. If we take her with us on the portable heater butt, then there is no downside to this.
>>39386272>There is a difference between evolving and growing up.She associated evolving with growing up.She didn't want to become the biggest and strongest.>>39386298Thats not completly true. She is a monster NEET, but most monster don't care much for traveling around. One thing isn't related to the other.
>>39385995Does that meen a bear, a deer and a beer?
>>39386318>then there is no downside to thisExcept for lugging around someone who doesn't care for no particular reason except hoarding monsters on our shell?
>>39386321If Ezzy didn't want to go traveling and wanted to stay home, she has the option to stay at home, or she'll travel with us because we are probably her only friends even after we give her the option.
>>39386365I think Ezzy doesn't actually care, and is such a creature of habit that she will stick to our neck out of sheer convenience, regardless of if there is a poin or not.She isn't going to leave her comfort zone on her own and start a life, she is going to want to hang around our neck doing nothing ofrever, of course.Doesn't means he should.
>>39386346Yes, we are the pokemon master.She fits around our neck, its about as much hassle as traveling with one. Considering compared to us she hardly eats much weight wise.
>>39386400Nin is actually probably a larger detriment to our adventuring, being the only Herbivore in the party and being delicate as all fuck, on top of being a valuable commodity due to Mothiness.Ezzy is best SpySnek.
>>39386400Man and the only thing I can think of reading this is the Spidertrain...
>>39386426>Nin is actually probably a larger detriment to our adventuring>A excellent healer is detrimental to travelingUh, no?The tiny downside of her food isn't even nearly enough to register compared to the value of someone who can heal like she can. Especially since she can easily gather her food herself everywhere apparently.
>>39386426Nin is actually the most valuable traveling companion we have due to her healing dust.The only one nearly as valuable is Jin, since she can fly, everyone else can't really do anything that important we can't do ourselves.
>>39386429World of Lewdness. Title kind of says it all.
>>39386426Anybody who thinks they can take a terrifying skull spider flanked by a wolf and a harpy for one moth would be too stupid to live. We'd do the world a favour.
>>39386457Yeah, unless we go running through the desert, feeding Nin is completly in the 'not a problem' zone.
>>39386510What if the people trying to take Nin to turn her into the Monsterbutt equivalent to a Meth lab are also Monsterbutts?
>>39386529Pretty sure nin would be fine with dried fruit rations. Hell, she'd be fine with cactus pear and the like.
>>39386510Actually, being sphinx moth, Nin should be able to hover and fly like a hummingbird now. Which makes her far more capable of defneding herself with fencing. We need to try that out.
>be neutral on this whole topic>this whole conversation passes by meThis is weird.
>>39386542I think our encounter with the wolves showed we can handle other monsters pretty well too.Arachne are kinda close to the apex of the food pyramid as monster-people go.
>>39386549welcome to life and other peoples lives.
>>39386563Aren't Forest Arachne small-time compared to other types of Arachne?Like, Plains arachne are Hueg, Mountain Arachne are jumping spiders or ambush spiders, and Jungle / Desert Arachne are generally Scorpions.
>>39386542We are still a giant spider. We are at the top class monsterbutts even at base tier, but then we fucking went and got to the very rare tier three. Plus a fucking ton of blessings.We can take them.
>>39386598>Aren't Forest Arachne small-time compared to other types of Arachne?Actually not, mountain arachne are pretty tiny. And its said that desert arachne evolve pretty fast into scorpions, which implies they grow faster and are therefore likely weaker on baseline.
>>39386598>Aren't Forest Arachne small-time compared to other types of Arachne?No. Mountain spiders just have a specific focus in their evolution. Plain arachnes just keep growing due to free space, but that likely takes them a long ass of a time to evolve due to placid environment.So it's only desert spiders because that's basically Australia. They are all tier 3 because otherwise they /just fucking die/
>>39386648If anything Jungle Arachne would be the strongest (tarantulas). But would lack venom, which can be a rather fatal oversight vs others.
>>39386598Real life tells me the scariest spiders are the ones that livein forests. Doubly for jungles, nightmare tier spiders there...
>>39386684>But would lack venomJungle arachne are epxlicitly the ones with the worst toxines. According to the Species Info.
>>39386618Not to mention our absurdly bullshit mana control ability. Even wizard monsters have nothing on us.
>>39386712Hmm, Maybe a mix of both types?
>>39386684While jungles do contain the scariest spiders they aren't necessarily the biggesthttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anelosimus_eximius
>>39386723atronach OP plz nerf
>>39386695Quadruply so if they live on deserted islands, and Octuply so if it's fantasy Australia.
>>39386759That would be a cool City.
You blast through the forest, keeping a hard pace towards Esmerelda's home.And any unfortunate morsels that happen to be between you and you destination.Nin has switched to a seat on your shell, holding tight- Sheszka and Jin have both taken off, the harpy simply plucking anything small enough to swallow from wherever it tries to hide, while the wolf works in concert with you, herding animals into your path.Which you murder, of course. You reach the waterfall with a small pile of deer in hand, bears apparently now knowing to steer clear of you. That's fine. You'll be leaving soon. There'll be new bears, bears that haven't heard of you-And when you return...They will have grown careless in your absence.You laugh maniacally, stopping only to eat more as you run, and making a general mess of yourself.You scoot to the top of the waterfall with ease, courtesy of your rock elevator, depositing all of you atop the structure, and heading deeper into the woods.You're starting to slow, tiring as you push yourself further, churning up the riverside to your destination.You let yourself slow to a walk as you start to recognize things, catching your breath, chest heaving as you move.Ezzy is mostly away swaying slowly as she stands."Where are we?""Close to your home, yes?"She yawns, her jaw opening far wider than it should, fangs snapping into place before she closes it again, blinking slowly."But why?""Because we have to find out if you need to sleep, or if you can come with us. Or do you want to go home?""I'm bigger.""You are.""And I hunted.""You did.""I dunno.""Clear and concise, yes."She hisses at you."They will all be awake, yes?""Yeah, it's still early.""So you are just lazy, then.">Talk to Ezzy before you head in>Straight to the village!>Other (?)
>>39386783I keep saying we should cover the town in webs.
>>39386791>Straight to the village!
>>39386791>Talk to Ezzy before you head inAlso, just fill me in here, approximately how much are you going to get to brag about your evolution, ezzy?
>>39386791>>Straight to the village!
>>39386759They're like the spider version of army ants, tiny but able to collectively kill stuff many times their size
>>39386791>Talk to Ezzy before you head in
>>39386791>>39386791While this might not be the point to discuss it, the, purely cosmetical, option for colored nets would be cool.There is even a spider that spins golden webs
>>39386791> Talk to Ezzy before you head in> "Listen, yes... I would be happy to have you with me wherever I go, but you need to ask yourself if this is what you want. There will be new things to see and do if you follow me, new ways you can grow and change yourself, but it will also be a hard and often dangerous road."
>>39386791>You reach the waterfall with a small pile of deer in hand, bears apparently now knowing to steer clear of you. >That's fine. You'll be leaving soon. There'll be new bears, bears that haven't heard of you->And when you return...>They will have grown careless in your absence.Oh kay..... I didn't think we had a problem. Now I'm not so sure.>Straight to the village!
>>39386855Look man, if you want Lyra to cosplay as Gilgamesh or Say-bah just say it instead of beating around the bush with your colored web-nonsense.
>>39386791>tfw you won't attain tier 4 before leaving the forest
>>39386822I might swap this to >head straight in.Because I am feeling suddenly impatient.
Ezzy it is!
>>39386916http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_orb-web_spiderDude, I understand what you're sayin' but I would've voiced my demand if there was any
>>39386916>Gilgamesh LyraQuick! We must Forge-touch ALL of our stuff to have a tasteful gold sheen with blue markings to match our Ultra-Shiny Crimson Butt, legs, and arms!
>>39387104But we'd need to send nin after some wild man for seven days or something.
>>39387048This seems like an Elle evolution.Man I hope that's the right name
>>39387133>Implying Nin wouldn't be our Say-Bah.
>>39387205>Implying we wouldn't make a Say-Bah harem
Ezzy has her arms crossed, frowning at you from her seat on your shoulder.You interrupt her before she can get started."Well- Do you want to talk, yes?""Talk?""About what you want.""I said I didn't know.""Yes. So talk, and think about it. Not making decisions doesn't make decision making easier.""I'm not sure, though.""Do you like hunting? Or seeing new things?"She tightens her grip on you."Mmm. Hunting was- Hunting was good. It felt good. Doing things that I- That I ssshould be able to do, finally. I felt proud, yes? Like I was finally growing up.""Yes?""And humans seem nice. The half elf is funny, I liked talking with her. The moths drinks were good, even though they made me feel sick after."She tugs absentmindedly at your hair."And growing was- growing was everything I thought it would be. I'm bigger. Bigger! And my scales are nice. And you- you're warm. I didn't have friends. I was small and stupid and weak, and I hid inside while everyone went out and grew up or lived or- or whatever."She grows quiet again, playing with her dress, shifting. "I- I think if I went home- It would be fine. I could do thingsss that I couldn't before. And Mom would be proud.""Yes?""I don't think I want to go home.""Mhm. Then we will go talk to them, yes?""Okay," She says with a small voice.>Head on in.>Give her a hug before you go.>Set her down, let her walk in on her own. Slither. Whatever.>Other (?)
>Give her a hug before you go.
>>39387553>>Give her a hug before you go.>>Set her down, let her walk in on her own. Slither. Whatever.
>>39387553>Head on in.
>>39387553>>Give her a hug before you go.>Set her down, let her walk in on her own. Slither. Whatever.
>>39387553>>Head on in.I support a hug only if you explain exactly what hugging something that small looks like
>>39387553>>Give her a hug before you go.>>Set her down, let her walk in on her own. Slither. Whatever.>>Other : I'll be right here beside you.
>>39387553>Give her a hug before you go.>Set her down, let her walk in on her own. Slither. Whatever.
>>39387553>Give her a hug before you go.>Set her down, let her walk in on her own. Slither. Whatever.Be proud and hold your head high little snek, for you are an adult now.
>>39387553>Head on in
>>39387553>Give her a hug before you go.>Set her down, let her walk in on her own. Slither. Whatever.I've already put the theoretical worst case scenerio out, barring some weird issue I'm unaware of she SHOULD be fine to go, regardless lets just take this in stride.
Real problems time.How are we going to carry all the loot we have already accumulated and are going to accumulate?It's not like we can carry it on our back, that's taken.
>>39387713Ask dad where he got his nifty bag. Then go get one
>>39387713Didn't dad make us a bag of holding?no captcha the bag is not full of sushi
>>39387713>How are we going to carry all the lootThe guild seems to have a very developed banking and transactions network, I bet we could send stuff home per messenger.
>>39387743>no captcha the bag is not full of sushiWe can fix that
>>39387768Seriously, does anyone else realize that the impossibly deep lake that giant crab came out of probably has a lot of neat stuff further down?
Snake hugs and slithering!Writing!
>>39387792Did you watch star wars one? If not you need to, it will show you why diving down into deep holes is always a bad idea.
>>39387792pff, surely there are no mysteries in that old lake.We are all perfectly safe to ignore it and let whatever dark powers lie there fester while the heroes go off and have high flying adventure.
>>39387743>inb4 Ezzy climbs into the bag>>39387768>in after the sushi comment...
>>39387823Chances are cthulu is asleep at the bottom of it or something, lets not fuck with it.
>>39387792The lake didn't seem unusual. More interesting are the explicitly existing dark forces in the forest lakes that drove the hydra down to us.
>>39387847>"Hey Mom! Look what I caught for dinner!">Nialla turns to Sil. The moth has already extended the flask to her.
>>39387967Nah man, Lyra and Nin would drag Cthulhu's corpse back for their wedding night.Lyra eats Cthulhu, Nin gets the seaweed.
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>39388037Preemptively rolling for sanity.
>>39388108>slowclap.gifBig ol' fail. Awesome. Murderspider now?
>>39388108We are now an Archne freed of fate and able to comprehend the entirety of existence.We are going to fuck up so much shit it's going to be unbelievable.
>>39388108Guess we better roll perils of the warp a few times.
You bring your hand up to your cheek, gently cupping your friend and holding her against yourself."Wh-what are you doing?""You are a very small snake, and I am a very big spider, yes. Maybe later I can give you a proper hug, but for now-""Oh."She stretches her arms across your face, hugging you back as best she can. Far more than she'd be able to manage previously, but still small.You pat her head, letting her curl around your hand, letting her slip to the ground, though she keeps nearby, one hand never straying far from you.She slithers nearby, sliding through the undergrowth, heading unerringly towards home, her friends close behind.
>>39388246And I'm sorry to cut it short like this, but I need to run!Next session will be monday, as saturday I'll be busy with friends.As usual: Comments, questions and all that answered in thread!
>>39388273See you on Monday, REQM!
>>39388273aw shit. that was sudden.Good luck with your emergency.
Could you explain that whole thing with the "web" of fate, goddess Arachne and ourself? We're a bit confused on that. Are we a god because we are not bound by fate or all Arachne like that?
>>39388335>Are we a god because we are not bound by fateLiterally nothing implied that.
>>39388273I've been curious for a while now but how do the rolls you ask for with training work?
>>39388324>>39388326Thanks for playing!See you monday!>>39388371Standard rolling, vs Mom. The difficulty shifts depending on how you're doing- If you're rolling high, she's making it harder.>>39388335All arachne are free of fate, yeah.
>>39388509So, do you consider anything about that nat 1 on the sanity check to have an effect on actual events ic?
>>39388580We were only ever barely sane, and we've been increasingly less so over recent threads.
