You awaken to the world with wet eyes, you look around and for awhile nothing can be made out but the most basic of shapes and colors. After a few hours things come into focus and you take in the sight of the world around you. You instinctively know that you are in a forest instead of in the lair of your mother. The though sends a chill down your spine with the realization you can't feel the warmth of her or her flame. You are a hatchling dragon, you can't be more then a day old with you still laying about in half your egg shell. First things first, let's take inventory on what we're dealing with. What gender are you?>Boy>Girl>Other?And what color glances of the shine of your new soft, but quickly hardening, scales?
>>39392928>Boy>Blue with red streaks.
>>39392928> Boy. > World War 1 era ship camouflage

OP here, thread 404'd on me, hopefully it still says I'm OP when I post. Anyway! So judging by what's in between your legs it becomes apparent you are indeed a male. Your scales are a lovely dull green whose scales blend in well with the surrounding foliage.Now that we know what you look like, what are we going to do? As fearsome and quickly growing as dragons are you'll still not last your first week or so unless you find your mother or at least someone you can manipulate to take care of you. So what should be are first action?>Eat rest of eggshell>Investigate surroundings>Attempt to fly>Cry out>Other? [write in]

Sorry for my newb faggotry.
Now then, let us continue. You begin to devour your shell for some much needed nutrients. You feel full enough to take a look around, deciding to test out your new legs instead of risking flight just yet. You walk about the clearing you hatched in to see nothing striking but trees and other shrubbery. That is except until you look up and see a huge mountain just above the tree line, it couldn't be more then a days walk. Then you hear in the distance what hears like angry male voices coming from behind you opposite the direction of the mountain. >Head towards mountain?>Investigate Voices?>Other?[Write]

>>39393554>>Investigate Voices?Let's be, uh . . . friendly, how about. After we know whether or not they want to kill us.
>Investigate VoicesAs you blend into the foliage it is for your to sneak up on the source of the noise, you quickly come across a camp of what appears to be two creatures, one wearing raggedy clothing and grey beard, and the other one a red cloak covering his face and body with a knotted wooden staff. Combing through all the knowledge you've heard your dragon parents speak during your years being an egg you figure that the raggedy one must be a human given his pale skin. It really gives you a sense of how small you currently are, compared to the men you are about the size of the raggedy man's mangy dog that went up to his knees. You can't wait for your first growth spurt."Gad, damnit! I can't believe you lost one of the eggs!" Yells the bearded man. "Mistress is going to kill us if she finds out we lost one.""Don't worry, friend, it can't have gotten far. I've already sent the boy to deliver the eggs. If we find it we'll say we discovered bonus one." Said the robbed one in a whispery voice. "If you think she'll buy that you're more of a dead man then you already are." The other chided. <Reveal ourselves?<Stealthly investigate the camp site?<go to road next to camp?<Attack the two and the dog?<Other

>>39393850>Stealthly investigate the camp site?
feel free to just say that we can find out about this later, but are dragons benevolent or evil in this setting or does it differ from species to species of dragon? And as such, which does our dragon fall under?

>>39393970Considering we seem to be sapient, I'm going to say that it largely falls upon us.
I want to go the hoarding dragon route.
>Stealthly investigate the camp siteYou slink around the camp site, it contains a red tent similar in color and material to the red robbed man, a wood chest with a few beakers of colored liquids on top, a campfire in the center, on the other side of the camp fire is a tattered knapsack and a scrolled up piece of parchment. The dog begins sniffing the air as if catching a whiff of something. The two fail to notice as they continue to bicker.>Search Tent?>Search Chest?>Investigate liquids? >Attempt to steal parchment?>Attempt to lure the dog out of sight of the two people?>Leave?>Other?

>>39394335I thought dragons did that normally?
As tempting as the parchment and liquids are, you decide it's probably for the best to get ride of the dog from the two people. You crawl back into the under growth and a gently flap your wings to waft your scent over to the dog. The hound picks it up easily and follows it, fortunately still to no notice of the two men. It follows your scent to a nearby bush out of sight of the camp.

You two inspect each other and you notice that this dog has been beaten pretty badly by it's owner with bruise spots visible under it's matted coat. After you establish you're friendly you raise your head and reach out a hand. The dog flinches at first but after awhile relaxes and allows you to pet it.

Are we one of those dragons who can eventually shapeshift into humanoids?
So, as a green dragon, do we automatically have gas breath/poison breath?Or can we choose?I want lightning breath, no one will see it coming!
>>39394657I'd rather have acid breath. No one expects acid damage. Most poisons suck.

This has been a pretty tough choice wither or not to bring the dog with or without you back to camp. But after struggling with it long enough you decide you don't have the dog trained well enough to be much assistance beyond basic instruction, plus you wouldn't want to risk injury the only friend/ally you have thus far already. So you tell it to stay to which it understands well enough and begins to lay down and try to nap. You then proceed back to the camp. The Red Robbed man is at the fire staring at a cauldron. His flask of colored liquid are empty sitting next to him. The raggedy man seems to be looking for his dog shouting "Mutt boy?

I am hoping we can kill the egg thieves in their sleep and take all their possessions. At the very least taking out the wizard without giving him the chance to fight back.

>In the tentIt's easy enough to slip underneath the cloth tent from the back to sneak inside. However what you find inside surprises you. A woman in a rather revealing black dress with strange symbols stitched into it in red seems to be meditating in front of a crystal ball. She hums some incomprehensible language with her eyes closed.

You think to yourself, however they manage to pull it off it shall be their undoing, by your claw and breath if you have to...but first...let's inspect our little starter horde here. The wine has no label upon it but upon uncorking it you realize this is the first drink of anything you've ever had, so as much as you would like to say it's of good vintage you can't know for certain yourself. It does taste good to you though. Inside the coin purse you count 50 gold pieces in total. The sword appears to be of regular steel and you can detect no magic or enchantment upon it. Same goes for the helmet. Lastly you open up the books and realize something terrible...you haven't learned to read yet.

The Raggedy man is no where to be seen. You pounce on him as soon as he puts the bucket down. However when you pounce upon and clamp down on his neck you feel no resistance of flesh. When you burn him with acid the robe melts away to reveal a skeleton was already underneath it.

We take a close look at the bones and notice that they aren't exactly human, at least, no human you've seen yet has fangs and tusks for teeth. The colored liquid seems to be constantly shifting color and is much heavier then you expected. The concoction also appears to be bubbling. You decide to worry about that later though and find the raggedy man. It's not long though as you quickly hear your dog screaming. >Go to dog>continue looking around the camp>Drink liquid

>>39396471This makes me picture an ADD guy on a battlefield having just cut a man down and he immediately stops and starts to rifle through his pockets while a battle rages on around him and the next guy is just staring at him like he's an idiot.This is what I see, an unfinished battle with an unfocused man, who could at any moment get his head taken off./tg/, pls, you're supposed to be smarter than this!
>>39396462>GO TO FUCKING DOG!Dammit, people! You got careless!
>>39396462>>Go to dogRage.
>>Go to dogYou run as fast as your legs can carry, flapping your wings in your attempt to fly but only gaining enough air to glide every few steps. You see the raggedy man beating the dog. "Fucking hound. I told you to stay near the camp! And what's with all this shit doing here? Fucking piece of shit can't even keep thieves away!"He hasn't noticed you yet, to busy wailing on the dog. Your throat burns with acid and rage.>Breath weapon at a distance>Close in and bite/breath combo>Call the raggedy man out
>>39396554>>Close in and bite/breath combo
>>39396554>Call the raggedy man outWe have to get him away from the doge, it might get in our way
>>39396554Call the raggedy man out for an honor duel, and as he runs towards you, use a breath attack.No honor for bastards.
>>39396554>>Call the Raggedy Man outWe have to do this the right way. This man will taste our Justice and he will know the sting of futile regret.
>>39396554>Breath weaponThen take cover, we need to test this guy's defenses.
>>39396565>>39396570>>39396580Tiamat, dammit, /tg/! You don't fight wizards on fair terms! Either we melt him from a safe distance, or catch his attention and get him off our friend!
>>39396554>Close in and bite/breath combo
>>39396593Who said anything about fair? I just want him to look into my eyes as he dies.
>>39396640Cause you wont be just about face to face with the guy with your jaws around his windpipe.Not at fucking all.
>>Call the Raggedy Man outAs your rage boils inside you, you roar at the man and then shout "Get off of him and fight me with honor you clearly don't have, slayer of dragon young, you bastard!" The raggedy man turns with surprise at this. "Well bloody fuck, looks like the egg hatched. Damn it all that makes my job harder. Well looks like I'll have to put you down before I do so with the dog." He says before pulling out a flint lock pistol and aiming it right for you.>Close in and bite/breath combo>Flee>Attempt to fly and knock the gun from his hand>Breath weapon from a distance
>>39396647>Attempt to fly and knock the gun from his handIf we use our acid breath we'll probably hit the doge
>>39396647Breath weapon, BUT make sure not to harm the pistol, when he's dead loot the man for his pistol, holster and other gun things
gg /tg/, fuck up just a bit harder so we can complete this with a no re.Yes, throw away the advantages you have, THAT is how you should fight when you were HATCHED less than an hour ago.No words, /tg/, no words.
>>39396647>>Breath Weapon his hand with the gun in itTry to keep moving btw>>39396645He's got to know why were ripping his throat out.
>>39396677>He's got to know why were ripping his throat out.Oh yes, tell me why.Try to convince me why we should tell a dead man anything.This is like, shitty BBEG-tier bullshit. Are we gonna monologue about how hitting our friend was a bad idea next?
>>39396647>Flee/Move to cover!Possibly scale a tree to try death from above.Actually, just how big are we? Our egg could have been a cup (probablt a large one) but we were able to snap all the way through the woman's neck.>>39396674Argh, I know!
>>39396699Pride. It's too hard to resist, I'm sorry.
>>39396713die in a fire of your most loved beings.this could have been a simple bite and breathe choice but no.
>>39396713Pride, my ass! We're literally like, 20 minutes old right now, we dont have any fucking pride!Pride is literally the shittiest thing to have ESPECIALLY when you dont have anything to back it up with.This is why villains get their shit pushed in. Hell, this is why HEROES, get their shit pushed in!>>39396703And holy crap, that gunblade, my eyes! were around the size of the dog, if I remember correctly, so small dog sized?
>>39396737We won't die. Dragons are notoriously resistant to bullets.
>>39396703>gunbladenot even once. just no.
>>39396749>inb4 he has a gun tailored to killing dragons because HE IS STEALING FUCKING DRAGON EGGS
>>39396749yeah when they're older than a day maybe.
>>39396740THIS.Also, sorry about the gunblade, frankly, I just liked the dragon dude and his outfit.>>39396749We are twenty minutes old! Our scales are probably soft as skin!
>>39396753They kinda seem like amateurs, and even if he did that's probably what the liquid the Skeleton was making for him.
>>39396764I'm iffy on the anthro dragon, it's feasible with dragon shape-change sorcery bullshit I just never liked the look, but I do agree, the ouitfit is pretty sweet.
>>39396767Friend, no offense, but amateurs do not steal dragon eggs. That is like fucking with the meanest bitch you know, grown several dozens of feet tall, gaining hundreds if not thousands of pounds, becoming nearly immune to conventional weaponry and able to breath pure death.There are no amateurs, but they can still make mistakes. No one expected a dragon egg to be lost, let alone hatch, but how nonchalantly talks about killing us and just draws iron on us shows he is entirely nonplussed, this is just another day for him.What we did was kill someone in a trance [read: nearly unconscious] and a skeleton.
Oh fuck, is this set in the Gate setting?
>>39396795We won't die. Dragons are notoriously resistant to mistakes.
>Breath weaponYou fire a blast of concentrated acid that stings his eyes before you come in closer and fire another blast directly in his face. Causing him to fire to reach for his face screaming before he dies flailing on the ground expanding your vocabulary of swears if it wasn't through melted lips. You run over to your dog who has fortunately managed to walk away from the scene but sadly appears to have broken his back left leg as he limps away. >Find a way to treat the dog>Mercy kill the dog>Go back to the camp>Go back to your mini-hoard>Leave for the road>Leave for the mountains
>>39396808Actually, the evidence points in the opposite direction.Most of the time dragons die because they fuck up in some way or another.Like doing stupid shit like this.
>>39396820>Find a way to treat the doge
>>39396820>>Find a way to treat the dog
>>39396820>Mercy kill the dogwe have like a 1 in 10 chance to use the right potion from our new hoard to help the poor doge.
>>39396820Well, that was easy, guess the GM's being forgiving.First things first:>Other: Eat the gunslinger's heart out.Not being grimderp, but we have to make SURE he's dead.Next:>THEN find a way to treat our friend.
>>39396820Treat the dog
>>39396820>>Find a way to treat the dogEven if we can't, the wound will just heal wrong. Nothing that scary for a dog, just a limp.>>39396822Told you silly. Resistances should be taken into account.
>>39396838it's more like this dragon is armoured with PLOT™
>>39396854Just because QM is in easymode.Dude had a gun pointed our way already, the time it would take to breath enough acid at the distance he is at would take FAR longer than it would take for the gunman to just pull the trigger.Were this dice it would have been a very hard roll.I really hope he doesn't baby you guys in the future.
>>39396872I thought breath weapon was instantaneous? The acid would just burn the bullet
>Find a way to treat the dogYou take the dog over to your mini-hoard and lay him down on the grass. You go back to the camp and tear the tent to shreds to make bandages and use a stick to create a splint on the broken leg. It's all you can do for now. With everyone dead you guess you can include the campsite to your hoard. Which reminds you that the last thing you forgot to steal was the parchment next to the knapsack.Night has fallen and it has been a long day.>Watch over the dog till morning>Sleep next to dog till morning>Investigate the parchment
>>39396820>>Find a way to treat the dog>>Loot the Raggedy Man>>Go back to the camptime for maximum loot before setting out
>>39396903>Investigate the parchment
>>39396903>>Investigate the parchment>>Watch over the dog till morning
>>39396891Breath weapon takes a half-action as far as I am aware, additionally, even if it is instant, we are an infantile dragon, our breath weapon probably shouldn't even function yet, and if you want to say it does, the distance is a problem, the range would be atrocious because of our size.And no, acid would not work on something traveling at 400+ feet per second. The acid is not that strong.
the idea is interesting but I think I'll have to drop this because of easymode. The players should feel like their decisions matter and that means letting failure be part of it.
>>39396903>>Sleep next to dog till morning>>Investigate the parchment
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>39396872We were never going to die. Dragons are notoriously resistant to bad rolls.>>39396903>>Investigate the parchment
>>39396903>Loot the man and take his pistol>investigate the parchment>watch over dog till morning
>>39396928You're right, but this is probably just the tutorial mode so the QM can get to his plot sooner
>>39396942Hahahaha, I can appreciate the irony of my roll.
>>39396954The dice have willed it, you would have killed us. Easily.>>39396952I get that, but even tutorials can still be failed, or be difficult.Ninja Gaiden. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUNot that hard, but you know, we could have gotten at least maimed from that. A flightless dragon due to a missing wing could be great for characterization. We could be a jealous and spiteful dragon towards other dragons, and chill with flightless creatures more.
>>39396973A dragon naturally suited for flight losing its wing? We'd get fucking rekt
>>39396985Not at all. You'd be surprised at what an intelligent creature can do when handicapped.We'd be more likely to actually be able to diplomance with the lesser creatures, we'd probably end up armoring ourselves since we wont be flying anyway, we will have a predisposition to sciences and be more humble which gives us a few advantages.Imagine magical dragon platemail. Other dragons would back the fuck up when their breath weapons dont work because we are wearing warded armor that even they would have trouble getting their teeth and claws through, meanwhile we have our orc buddies firing ballistae at them to try and ground them.It's about playing smart, anon.
>>39397009You're probably right, but all the time inbetween and actually getting there. It's going to take a long fucking time unless we time skipped or something
>Investigate parchmentYou collect the parchment and find it to be a map, a map of the surrounding area. Several locations are circled, one of them being the nearby mountain with a red x through it. Judging from the map there is a town just up the road. You try to fly back off towards the hoard when you fly flat on your face. You look to your wings and notice a tear in part of the membrane. It surprisingly doesn't hurt and has avoided in blood vessels. Apparently the gunner got a shot in after all but only hit your wing. You'll just have to hope that heals or you'll never learn to fly. You go back to the gunmen's body to find that the pistol has some kind of muffling device on the barrel. Making sense, you reason since you don't want to make noise when stealing eggs. You toss the gun on to your little pile and watch over the dog till morning.(We'll end the thread here for the night. need sleep. Look forward to a sequel thread soon!)
>>39397025God damn it. You all couldn't just roll with it.Welp fun times it is.
>>39397020But remember, its not the destination, it's the journey.There is so much to do as a cripple dragon, so much more tension, it's way more interesting, things that normally cant threaten a dragon suddenly can, no more flying away like a bitch, we manmode this shit and go all out like that T-Rex v Spinosaurus fight in JP 3 (Fucking awful movie, that was an aquatic dinosaur with thing and weak bones and inferior musculature fighting THE apex land predator, my ass the T-Rex loses! Tyrant KING bitch!)Plus, a dragon chilling with his mortal homies and helping them make airships and advanced alchemy sounds pretty tight.
>>39397025noting for next time, as a young dragon, we should try eating the bodies, I mean it's been a busy first day and all we've had is an egg shell.As another note, it seems we have our main plot hook: someone's hunting dragons, and I highly doubt these goons were the only ones.
>>39397046You're assuming humans don't fucking hate all dragons and that we wont be preyed upon by others with superior firepower.
>>39397025Pretty good for a first thread m8.My only gripes is that you should be more descriptive, but that seems to have improved near the end.Looking forward to the next thread!
>>39397064When a small isolated town is approached by a fully grown (if landlocked) dragon that says it wants to HELP them, they'd be fucking retarded to fight it.It's like warfare, anon, once we get the supporting infantry to our armored vehicle the effectiveness increases exponentially.And I'm not assuming humans dont hate us, but I am also not assuming we will approach humans. There could be elves, orcs (more than likely with the tusked skeleton) and all sorts of other shit, too.
>>39397095So, what about now since we're in babby mode. It takes like 100 years to grow into a full grown adult Dragon. What happens when these guise don't report back to their employer or whatever. I can only assume more people will come. We got lucky now, but eventually they'll send something we can't really compete with. Also, mama dragon will probably try to kill us for being a cripple if we go back to the cave.
>>39397116We can always hide in a different cave and start our horde there.
>>39397116>Also, mama dragon will probably try to kill us for being a cripple if we go back to the cave.To be honest, I'm note sure mama dragon is alive anymore. Though those guys were chumps and went down pretty easy, so maybe they did only raid the eggs.
>>39397116>As fearsome and quickly growing as dragons areImplies it wont take a century to fully mature. I wouldn't say quickly growing to describe something that has a 70 year adolescent period.And who says they wont report back? You are only assuming the worst, and I am assuming we dont make the BIGGEST asses of ourselves and fuck ourselves over. WHY would we not let them report back saying everything is nominal? WHY would our mother just kill us? All of her other children are dead, I doubt she would just kill her last one, that doesn't make sense, even dragons have maternal instincts, thats why we are drawn to her as a baby, cause thats how it's always been, mama takes care of baby.I still stand by saying the ONLY reason we didnt get absolutely fucking wrecked now was cause first thread easy mode.
>>39397161But it was for the better.
>>39397161We killed them. That's how they wont report back, didn't you read the thread? Maybe she wont kill us, but we don't know that. Dragons lay many eggs, she could just get rid of us and mate again years later. I'll admit, I am reaching
>>39397194I was talking about a town we would subjugate, obviously we meant different things, apologies.Mothers have a weird thing about children, even more so than most fathers, if you have a child left, you will not if you are still sane ever do anything to harm that child.It'll probably turn out something like Finding Nemo. Except with giant firebreathing mother, instead of tiny, colorful swimming father.
>>39397226I guess we'll just have to see. We know almost nothing of the setting so far.
>>39397243Fair enough. Guess we'll debate and argue once we figure it out, then! Hah!
