You are Randal Tallstag, a young lord of House Tallstag, one of the great five noble houses of the kingdom of Whitestar. There has been much trouble in Whitestar the past few years and your house has fallen greatly because of it. Barbarians from the far North have invaded your kingdom and stolen much of its land, nearly wiping out your entire noble house save for you and a few others in your family, namely your father and your uncle and his family.Your house along with the other great houses, have been called to the capital of Whitestar, the city of Snowhaven. This great city is where the king resides with his family, the Frostclaws. After attending your coming of age ceremony, you have chosen to join the King's Rangers, and will leave to join them in three days time.Catch up with the story by reading the past threads here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Will%20of%20Ice%20QuestTwitter: https://twitter.com/ChillstheQMCharacter sheet: http://pastebin.com/MCHJfPWt
>>39585415(Copying the last post from the previous thread since all you guys went to sleep)”I don’t know what to say Trista.” you say, rather shocked.“Its alright, you don’t have to say anything,” Trista says coldly “I saw the way you looked at Princess Lydia last night, I can tell you have feelings for her. Just reject me, choose her and be done with it.” She begins to walk off.“Look,” you say grabbing her by the arm, “just give me some time to...think this through, my head is a mess right now.”“At least we can agree on that,” Trista interjects.“We can talk about this later if you’d like, you’re my closest friend Trista. I care about you a lot. But there is a lot I’m going through, just give me time. That’s all I ask.”Trista sighs and turns to face you. “Alright Randal, I’ll give you the time and space you need, but we should talk about this eventually. I love you a lot, and all I want is for you to be happy,” she says with a smile, “Now let’s go get our gear and enjoy the day.”You agree and you and Trista head to the market. You’re glad she is so understanding, its always been a good quality of hers. You’re glad with how well that all went, most girls you know would have flipped out and yelled. But Trista is made of better quality stuff, you’re glad to have her as a friend.After a few more minutes of walking, you reach the market district.

>>39585606>she was too late>implying
>>39585974We promised ourselves to the princess by asking her to wait for us.Unless you really want to be a man who's word is worthless and break a promise not even a day after giving it.So no implications. It just is.
>>39586007Unless he gets horribly scared to the point of no longer being recognizable or one of them dies, then no.Or unless he gets drafted into the enforcers
>>39586007Well I chose that option I did because Trista is going to be with us for a couple years as a ranger pal and I don't want her pissed at us.
>>39585462You decide to head to a nearby indoor book shop that you spotted. You walk in with Trista following closely. Once inside you spot an elderly man with a long beard overlooking a tome. He doesn’t seem to notice you. You make a grunting noise to get his attention.“Oh! You startled me there young man! But please come in, come in!” he beckons, “Have a look at my wares, I have a wide selection of books for you to choose from. At a fair price too!”You nod towards the elderly man and begin looking around the shop for books that could help you for when you are a King’s Ranger. After 15 minutes or so of browsing you and Trista find a few books you think could help you both out. Four books in all titled “A history and codex of the King’s Rangers”, “A Guide to Tracking and Hunting as a Ranger”, “Rules and Regulations of the King’s Rangers”, and lastly “Basic Ranger Combat and Tactics”.“Hey Randal, if we can share the books and I’ll split the prices of whichever ones we get with you,” says Trista with excitement.“Alright you got a deal.”You bring the four books up to the counter. The old man inspects each of the books and rubs his beard.“Hmmm, will you be taking all of these books or only some of them?”>buy “A history and codex of the King’s Rangers” 10 gold>buy “A Guide to Tracking and Hunting as a Ranger” 8 gold>buy “Rules and Regulations of the King’s Rangers” 6 gold>buy “Basic Ranger Combat and Tactics” 10 gold>other
>>39586007Also gonna point out we jumped in the wagon too early without even considering things much. At least we had self restraint not to bang the princess.Or worse, bang the princess and then bang the friend.
>>39586023In which case it would have to be worked out, but we don't know if we'll be drafted. Do we have any siblings? I think if we are an only child we will be kept out to carry on the house name.>>39586046Turning her down in a respectful manner would not lead to several years being pissed at us. Some time sure, because no one likes being rejected. But if you don't man up and do it, shit is just going to get worse over time, not better.
>>39586093All of those. Does he have any thing on first aid or magic?
>>39586096We still made a promise. You have to deal with that. If we choose the princess in the future, or our friend now.Choose. Don't drag this on, especially not into the rangers.
>>39586101You are an only child, now, but you did have an older brother, he died, during the invasion. More on that later
>>39586132He's the stranger isn't he?Also what about our uncle.
>>39586093All.Maybe also try grab a book on wild herbs and medicines. Its a good idea to know what will help with a wound if we get stuck out in the field for a prolonged time without supplies.
>>39586128I know, I'm just pointing it out so we are more careful in the future.
>>39586151I will neither confirm nor deny that, however, you know your uncle is a member of the King's Rangers

>>39586180Does he have kids?
>>39586210he has three, 2 boys one girl
>>39586128Hang on. We don't have enough information yet to make good decisions. The current decision to wait and think things through is best. Once we have more knowledge as well as getting to know Tristan and the princess better we can make an informed decision.
>>39586093>otherBuy all. We're splitting the costs with Tristan, right?
>>39586231Which case, being drafted from the rangers is a possibility, which will be interesting. Though i would rather not, personally.>>39586239We already made a promise to the princess. I would be all for getting info. But you already promised. That's the bone of contention here. And now with delaying the inevitable, someone is going to be unhappy. Its just a question of who gets strung along and ends up hating our guts.
>>39586093counting votes now and writing
>>39586277Yeah. I see that now. Fucking autocorrect. I know I typed Trista.
>>39586281Even so, we can still turn Trista down. No need to rush. Let's first see how things pan out. I'd really like to know more about what our future mission will be about first. Also do we really know that we can trust the princess? Once we know more we can make an informed decision, whatever that may be. For now, let's just keep our options open.
>>39586281I get what you're coming from but we have time. Calm down a bit mate Think about who's going to benefit us more in the long run rather than thinking about who's going to hate the outcome. don't focus on Might happen focus on what we can do to prevent it. You keep bringing up promises feelings change . Especially when you don't see them for years on end. WE promised verbally there's nothing in writing it's not like we signed a contract.
>>39586405>>39586440Fair enough points. But we are still going to be pressured well before we have had much time to think on it, unless we get a couple fluff scenes with Trista before she forces the issue. And i feel kind of bad dragging out this argument. Sorry Chills.
>>39586093“We’ll take all of them,” you say, “ but before we pay, do you have any books on first aid? Perhaps herbal remedies or magic?”“Hmmm let me think,” ponders the old book keeper, he strokes his beard for a few seconds and mumbles to himself, “Ah ha! Seeing as you’re becoming a Ranger I’d suggest you take this.”The old man hands you a book entitled “Outdoor First Aid and Herbal Remedies” it is priced at 10 gold as well.“Alright we’ll take all of them,” you confirm.“Splendid, but because you’re joining the King’s Rangers I’ll give you “Outdoor First Aid and Herbal Remedies” and “A history and codex of the King’s Rangers” for free, consider it a gift for you two young folks for servicing our kingdom. Now then that’ll be 24 gold pieces.”“Thank you very much sir, you have done me a great kindness, I owe you one.” You say, giving a slight bow.“That won’t be necessary, my son was a ranger, and he told me that King’s Rangers were some of the best people he ever met. I help them out whenever I can.” With that you and Trista split the price of 24 gold, and head on your way.>minus 12 gold pieces, 97 gold remainingwhere do you go to next?>the blacksmith>Apothecary shop>the fletcher>general store>other

The ones of note that you spot are a short bow worth 15 gold, a long bow worth 25 gold, a sling for 8 gold, javelins priced at 10 gold for a bundle of 6, 10 gold for 30 steel tipped arrows, and 5 gold for 25 iron balls for the sling.

How your father would make you practice every day with it, and how you killed your first stag with it when you were 15. Those were good days.You notice Trista selects the short bow and a set of normal arrows, you’ll probably have to give her pointers on the way to the King’s Rangers headquarters. Archery was never really Trista’s forte. She would much rather fight hand to hand, that was where she really shined.You both pay for your equipment and head on your way.>minus 35 gold, 62 gold remaining“Where are we going to next Randal?” Trista asks.

>>39587569“We should head over to the general store, and get some essential supplies for the road there as well as for when we get there.”Trista agrees and you both walk over to the general store. Inside there is a young couple at the counter, the smile and greet the both of you as you walk in. You both greet them in kind and go about your business looking for camping or survival essentials. To your luck you find some traveler’s packs in the store that come with most of what you’ll need, it includes the following: a compass, a map of the kingdom, a bed roll, flint and steel, 20ft of rope, a cooking pot, a backpack, 7 days worth of dry rations, a glass bottle, a fish hook, traveler’s clothes, a waterskin, and a few pieces of parchment. The pack is priced at 30 gold. You also find a mortar and pestle that’s been used priced at 2 gold, a holy symbol of The Three priced at 1 gold, and a bottle of Redmyer wine year 3352 priced at 10 gold.

>>39588654“Let’s head to the Great Church of The Three,” you say, “we can pick up something to eat on the way there.”“Awesome! I haven’t had a chance to go there yet!”You both head off to the church, with all of your new found gear in tow. On the way you each pick up some turkey legs from a street vendor costing you a gold each. You devour the turkey legs with haste while walking toward the center of the city where the church lay.Once you arrive, you are awestruck for yet another time by the impressive architecture of the church. You had just seen it yesterday, but it felt like it was for the first time again. After admiring the building for a few more minutes, you and Trista step inside. Immediately Trista walk over to the section for the Sindas, the Goddess of love, fertility, sex, mothers, and childbirth.“I’m going to head over here and talk to the priestess for Sindas and pray as well. I’ve always wanted to pray to her here in the Great Church,” she says briskly with a smile. “Alright I’m going to take a look around.”You worry to yourself that maybe Trista is praying to Sindas for you to love her. It would make sense with her confession of her love to you. After all, for the past several years you know she almost entirely prayed to Sindas, but you never asked, but now you’re certain you know.While pondering on this an elderly church priest walks up to you and asks, “Is there anything I can do for you my child?”>ask for info about the Goddess Sindas,>ask for info about the God Tor>ask for info about the God Arieman>ask for a tour of the church>other

>>39594183>>39594216nah fuck that, at least let me closeout properly if we are gong to do that. Just a few more posts. Its the least I can do for making you guys waste your time.Also writing.
>>39594372Alright OP, thanks!
>>39589387You ask the priest to give you a tour of the church. At this the priest smiles and obliges with your request. “We’ll begin the tour with a brief history of the church. The Great Church of the Three was built almost a thousand years ago, coinciding with the founding of the kingdom, it was the largest architectural undertaking of the kingdom until the palace began construction twenty years later.”The priest continues talking about the history of the church and the amazing feat by man spread through the realm. How it was decreed that no other church building in the kingdom was allowed to be built larger than the Great Church of the Three, or the Great Church for short. However, once you walk over to the large column statue of Tor, who is depicted as a man wielding a shield and a spear of lightning, he shifts gears.“Ah here we are, the God Tor. As I’m sure you know, Tor is the God of war, storms, the forge, and soldiers. Tor was the God who mainly forged The Ice and allowed for the construction of the five great ice forges throughout the kingdom.” Passing past Tor’s statue and section of the church you move onto the God Arieman’s column statue along with his section of the church. Arieman is depicted as and elderly man with a great beard and carrying The Book of Law.“This is the God Arieman, who is the oldest and wisest among The Three. Arieman is the God of law, the harvest, peacetime, and scholars. It was Arieman who originally came up with the plan to forge The Ice in order to free man from slavery at the elves’ hands.”
>>39594796Lastly, you head over to Sindas’ great column statue and section of the church. The Goddess is depicted a buxom and beautiful young woman with a daisy in her hand. You notice Trista praying at the feet of the statue. She looks up at you, smiles with a blush and continues back to her praying. “And finally here we have the Goddess Sindas. She is the Goddess of love, fertility, sex, childbearing, and mothers. She was responsible for sending word to mankind that they would soon be freed from the elves’ rule. That is the general tour. Is there anything else ypu wpuld like to know?” the priest asks. >”Tell me more about Tor”>”Tell me more about Arieman”>”Tell me more about Sindas”>other

>>39594867”Tell me more about Tor, please,” you ask, “I’d like to know more about him.”“Very well then,” the priest says as he guides you back across the church to Tor’s statue. “Tor, like I said, is the God of war, storms, the forge, and soldiers. However he also has domain over hunting, the forests and mountains, and is even worshiped by plenty of dwarves to the East of our kingdom. It is said that an army followed by a massive front of thunder snow is favored by him in battle.”You remember your father praying for thunder snow to follow his army when went off to fight the barbarians. The priest continues, “Tor, like the other two Gods, takes delight in prayers towards him, but he also takes delight in worshiping him while forging a weapon, not matter what it may be. Tor likes offerings of weapons, forge hammers, and animal meats from a fresh hunt to be left at his altars. Praying to him before a hunt is said to bring good luck, and that if you spot white stag while hunting, your are actually seeing Tor in avatar form and are greatly favored by him.Would you like to hear about the other two Gods or is there anything else I can help you with?”>”Tell me more about Arieman”>”Tell me more about Sindas”>other

>>39595482”Tell me more about Arieman”Leave the best for last
>>39595482>>”Tell me more about Arieman”Also do people generally pray to all 3 as their needs suit them or are people more beholden to one and then respect the others?
>>39595482>”Tell me more about Arieman”
>>39595482counting votes now and writing>>39595704most everyone prays to all three, but everyone has a favored god or goddess that they pray to more so than the others.
>>39595482”Tell me more about Arieman please,” you ask.“A wise choice,” the priest smiles, “Arieman is the God of law, the harvest, peacetime, and scholars. He also holds domain over diplomacy, plains and cities, and is held in high regards by the council members. Those that Arieman favors are said to be visited by a great white owl on a full moon. Arieman loves prayers to him just as the other two gods, but he favors those who leave tomes, hourglasses, magical staves, and bushels of fresh cut crops at his altars. Those with the powers of visions are said to be gifted by Arieman.”You think of Princess Lydia, she said she was born with the power of visions. You assume she must be greatly favored by Arieman then. Continuing, the priest states, “Arieman is not known to have an avatar form, but rather, can speak through those that he has gifted with visions. That is all for Arieman, would you like to know more about Sindas? Or is there anything else I can help you with?” >"No thank you, I'm going to pray" go pray to (specify)>”Tell me more about Sindas”>go speak to Trista>other

>>39596061”Tell me more about Sindas,” you ask.“Very well. Sindas is the Goddess of love, fertility, sex, childbearing, and mothers. She also has domain over rivers and lakes, gardening and is prayed to the most by single women, looking to have those they admire to fall in love with them. Those that Sindas favors are said to have eyes as blue as ice and raven hair or red hair like that of a rose.”Thinking on that, it reminds you of both Princess Lydia and Trista. You actually think to yourself that Sindas is toying with you by having two of her favored children vying for your affection.Th priest continues, “ Sindas adores offerings of flowers, scented candles, locks of hair from children, and aphrodisiacs. Sindas’ avatar form is said to be of a white fox with three white fox cubs following her, those that witness this avatar form are said to have their true love wed them the following week and bear many children. That is all for Sindas, would you like to pray or will you be on your way?”>pray to (specify)>go speak to Trista>leave with Trista and go to (specify)>other

>>39596820I'm going to stick with Tor but we can go talk to Trista afterwards I mean we came there with her.
>>39596882So we don't get killed by the two fighting beauties.Yeah that's it, mostly to wish us luck in that romanto-political trouble ahead of us.That said, we could always pray to all three gods.We will need knowledge and wisdom to weed out the traitors.We will need strength and courage to face the enemies that come.We will need love and compassion for our friends to keep them true and strong (and to solve that little trouble)

>>39597240Once again we still have time for that and most people pray to all three gods. Lets do Tor then Sindas then Arieman.
>>39597329I'm okay with that.
>>39596550You decide to take you leave of the priest and go pray to the God Tor. You head over to Tor’s statue, kneel down, and begin praying. In your prayer you ask Tor to grant you strength and courage on your upcoming journey. You also ask Tor to provide you and your loved ones for protection from your enemies and to give strength to you allies. After your prayer you remain kneeling and silent for a few minutes, to reflect on what you’ve said and what you will do. After a few more minutes of quiet contemplation, you feel a tap on your shoulder. You look up to see Trista smiling.“Are you ready to go Randal?”“Yes, I am, did your praying do you well?”“Very much so. I feel a lot better now. So where should we head to now? We’ve got a few more hours before dinner. My offer to relax at my place still stands by the way.”>go to the palace and visit (specify)>go to Trista’s place and relax>go to an inn or tavern to drink>other.

>>39597577and yes, Trista loves wine.
>>39597484“Actually that sounds nice Trista, I’d like to relax for a while. I also have that wine from the general store, we could try that out.”Trista’s eyes widen and she cracks a big smile. “Oh Randal I’d absolutely love some wine. They day has been long and I could go for a glass while we relax.”“Then its settled we’ll do that,” you say returning the smile.You and Trista then head out of the Great Church of The Three and walk towards Wolfshield estate, making talk about the items you purchased today and other small talk. Trista doesn’t seem to be mad at you anymore like she was this morning, you’re glad for that and hope it stays that way. A few minutes later you find yourselves at the front door of the manor. Tristaopens it and lets you inside. Upon entering you find that Lord and Lady Wolfshield are nowhere to be found. Trista finds a note that says they went out for the evening and won’t be back until later tonight.“Well I guess that means we have the house to ourselves,” says Trista after reading the letter, “Tyrel won’t be back until this evening either when his training is finished. Oh and Randal I’m going to go upstairs and change into some comfortable clothes, could you get some wine glasses from the kitchen and set them up with the wine in the living room? We can relax there.”“Sure thing,” you oblige, fetching the wine glasses as Trista heads upstairs.You get the wine glasses put and set them on the table overlooking the living room fireplace as you take a seat on the couch, it feels good to relax after a long day.
>>39598234After a few minutes Trista comes downstairs with her hair let down and in a lounge dress. Trista is certainly one for changing appearances drastically. One moment she’s a tomboy the next she’s a stunning beautiful lady. “Oh good, I’m glad your relaxing already,” says Trista. “Now that you are, I was wondering if we could continue our conversation from this morning?”>”Certainly Trista, the day has allowed me to clear my head, I’m ready to talk about it.”>”I don’t know yet, maybe if I have a few drinks of wine I’ll be ready to talk about it hahaha.”>”I don’t think I’ll be ready to talk about it for a while Trista, can you give me another day or to to think it over?”>other
>>39598290>”If I have a few drinks of wine I’ll be ready to talk about it hahaha.”>"To the future best rangers"Toast!
>>39598290>>”I don’t know yet, maybe if I have a few drinks of wine I’ll be ready to talk about it hahaha.”but yes if you want to talk we can talk.
>>39598290>”Certainly Trista, the day has allowed me to clear my head, I’m ready to talk about it.”
>>39598290>”Certainly Trista, the day has allowed me to clear my head, I’m ready to talk about it.”I've kinda been dreading this but it needs to be done.
>>39598290counting votes now. looks like drinking to help calm our nerves. Writing now
>>39598290>”I don’t know yet, maybe if I have a few drinks of wine I’ll be ready to talk about it hahaha.”
>>39598290You still feel quite nervous talking about love and relationships with your childhood friend, so you figure that you’ll need to drink some wine to help calm your nerves before talking about it.“Uhh I don’t know yet, maybe if I drink have a few drinks of wine I’ll be ready to talk about it hahaha,” you laugh nervously.“Thats fine Randal, I think I’ll have a drink as well,” responds Trista calmly as she pours you and herself a glass. Trista hands you your glass, she is about to take a drink before you stop her. “Wait,” you say, “before we drink, let’s toast...as friends. Trista smiles and nods in agreement.“To us, the soon to be best rangers in all of the King’s Rangers, and throughout the realm!” You announce with cheer.Trista responds, “To us.” You toast your glasses and each of you drink your wine. After a few minutes you both finishes you glasses and set them down. Trista moves herself closer to you and puts her hands on yours and faces you.“Okay Randal are you ready to talk now?” You feel a little nervous still but that glass of wine really helped. “Yes I’m ready, but I’ll ket yo say what you have to say. Then I’ll respond. Okay?”
>>39599141Trista nods in agreement, “Deal.” Tista lets out a sigh, “Okay, Randal, Like I said this morning, I love you, and I have loved you for a long time. I started falling for you when we were both around 15, after you had killed your first stag in the annual winter hunt. You’re a brave and just man. You’re very bright, even if you are a bit of a dumbass who gets into trouble from time to time. But most of all Randal, you’ve always been kind to me, more so than any other man. You’ve never judged me or ridiculed me for my tomboyish ways, and I’m ever thankful for that. I want to love you and return all the kindness you’ve shown me by tenfold. I really do love you Randal, and I’d do absolutely anything to make you happy. I feel that I can make you happier than anyone else can, if you’ll let me. So what do you say Randal? Will you let me make you happy?”>”I...wow Trista, I never knew you felt that way about me, but now that you’ve confessed ypur feelings, I’m sure now that I feel the same way. So how is it you want to make me happy?”>”I-I see, but Trista, while I have the same feelings for you, I also have feelings for Princess Lydia too, and I already promised myself to her.”>”Now I get it, but I’m sorry Trista, I still don’t know who to choose between you and Princess Lydia.”>other
>>39599159>”I...wow Trista, I never knew you felt that way about me, but now that you’ve confessed ypur feelings, I’m sure now that I feel the same way. So how is it you want to make me happy?”>”I-I see, but Trista, while I have the same feelings for you, I also have feelings for Princess Lydia too, and I already promised myself to her.”Both
>>39599159>”Now I get it, but I’m sorry Trista, I still don’t know who to choose between you and Princess Lydia.”And given that there are thing in play I am sworn not to talk about. Me giving my heart to either of you would be premature.
>>39599216>>39599159Fuck meant with an edit.LikeI realize I like you too, but I also like her (albeit more shallowly) and I promised myself to her. Wat do
>>39599159>”I...wow Trista, I never knew you felt that way about me, but now that you’ve confessed ypur feelings, I’m sure now that I feel the same way.

>>39599518Pls qm don't be harmful, we mean the best but we might not be expressing it right.
>>39599159”I...wow Trista, I never knew you felt that way about me, but now that you’ve confessed ypur feelings, I’m sure now that I feel the same way, but while I have the same feelings for you, I also feel the same way about Princess Lydia. Not too mention I promised myself to her as well.” Trista looks into your eyes for a moment, then sighs deeply again. “Randal, I can tell your telling the truth, but allow me to speak it as well. You just met her and you promised yourself to her, to me that sounds like it was in the heat of the moment. But with me, you’ve known me for nearly your whole life, and you love me as I love you. What we have, is real love, what your are feeling for Lydia is either lust or a shallow love. I know for a fact she doesn’t love you as much as I do. I also know I can make you happier than she can. No will you let me make you happy?”“Well how is it that you want to make me happy Trista?” you ask.Trista smiles and jumps up on to your lap with her legs wrapped around you, she begins to massage your shoulders slowly and she whispers into your ear, “I can make you happy inmany ways, but right now I offer you my body, and I am still a virgin.”>”Umm, well...you make a very strong argument Trista, and I can’t refute it. Besides its not like my promise was in writing or sworn before the gods. Please make me happy Trista.” (take Trista’ virginity)>”I’m sorry Trista, but I’m still undecided, and that’s my final word.” (don’t take Trista’s virginity)>”I see, but I promised Lydia and gave her my word, and I do love her. I cannot go back on that. I’m sorry Trista.” (don’t take Trista’s virginity)>say nothing, Trista is too much for you, take her now. (take Trista’ virginity)>other
>>39599866>”I’m sorry Trista, but I’m still undecided, and that’s my final word.” (don’t take Trista’s virginity)Besides I'd besmirch your honor as well as my own if did this.
>>39599866Wait wait wait wait wait waitWe're missing some cultural context hereWhat's this society's views on premarital sex?What about relationships before marriage?Dad clearly fucked and date many girls before momThat said>Kiss her>”I’m sorry Trista, but I’m still undecided, and that’s my final word.” (don’t take Trista’s virginity)

>>39599866I have a distinct feeling every female in this quest is a succubus.>>39600068That's a nice idea actually
>>39599992premarital sex, while discouraged, is not taboo or unheard of, even among lords and ladies. Life is short for humans, and Sindas even encourages SOME sexual promiscuity, mainly as a way to help mankind grow.being a virgin when one is married is desirable but it is not an affront to the gods, in fact most men and women are sexually active before marriage Your mother never held any grudges toward your father for being sexually active before they wed.
>>39600162meant to say it is not an affront to the goods to not be a virgin when your married.
>>39599866>say nothing, Trista is too much for you, take her now. (take Trista’ virginity)
I'm going get food to eat, so I'm leaving the voting period open for longer. don't kill each other over who is best girl while I'm gone, be back in a few mins
>>39600329No need to worry mate we're all civil here
>>39599866Okay I'm back, counting votes and writing
>>39600360>>39600329Lydiafags go homeI'm kidding. Ideally I'll take both. We're a ranger, not a paladinSome quick feedback, Chills! Last thread seemed to be very dull in what we were doing, not because we weren't fighting, but because we just seemed to robotically stand there and talk. I'd like some descriptions of expressions as we talk to people, sorta like you're doing now with Trista wanting us. Also tired as fuck right now, so that's all I can coherently give. Otherwise, I knew this was going to interesting places.
>>39600596>Ideally I'll take both.Doubt these guys have a history of acceptance to polygamy and multiple marriages.
>>39600669>inb4 we make the Princess a royal concubineNo but really, I doubt we'd be absolutely destroyed for having both.Hopefully.
>>39600728I mean, it's not like polyamorous relationships didn't exist during human history
>>39599866”I’m sorry Trista, but I’m still undecided, and that’s my final word.” You say, gently pushing her off of you. It wasn’t easy to say that, but you knew it was the right choice. You look at Trista and you see her eyes welling up with tears, but she is remaining silent. Ah shit, you’ve gone and done it now. You figure you better say something to cheer her up somewhat.“Look...Trista,” you mutter, looking for words to say, “I know this is hard for you but, it’s hard for me as well. We are talking about love here, and...and my heart just doesn’t know what it wants right now.” You put your hand on her shoulder to comfort her. “I love both you and the princess right now, but I don’t know who I love more, I care about bot of you very much but I just can’t pick one of you right now, I’m sorry. It’s just too early to decide yet, I’m going to need far more time. I hope you don’t despise me.”“....I *sniff* I don’t despise you Randal,” mumbles Trista holding back tears, “How can I? You remain steadfast*sniff* in the face of temptation and you are a man of your word. There...there are few men who can claim to be like you.” Trista is starting to have trouble forming words now she’s crying so much.“Please don’t cry Trista, I can’t bear it much longer,” you say pitifully. “I-I can’t help it!” She says finally bursting into tears and sadness. Her cries echo throughout the house. >kiss her passionately and say “Don’t worry Trista, just remember I love you and that no matter what I always will, besides we’ll be ranger together,won’t that be fun?”>say nothing but sit next to her and console her for a while.>You can’t bear this sadness anymore, change your mind and tell her you choose her>”I think it would be best if I take my leave.” quietly go and head home>other
>>39600938>>say nothing but sit next to her and console her for a while.
>>39600938>kiss her passionately and say “Don’t worry Trista, just remember I love you and that no matter what I always will, besides we’ll be ranger together,won’t that be fun?”
>>39600938>”I think it would be best if I take my leave.” quietly go and head homeI think it would be a bit dickish to stay and console her.
>>39600938Please don't let her be playing us.>“Don’t worry Trista, just remember I love you and that no matter what I always will, besides we’ll be ranger together,won’t that be fun?”Without kissing. Kissing goes too far into the "I'll take you over the princess territory."actually, she did say she'd do anything to make us happy. Lydia+Trista=me happy...
>>39600938>kiss her passionately and say “Don’t worry Trista, just remember I love you and that no matter what I always will, besides we’ll be ranger together,won’t that be fun?”Oh come on we kissed the princess
>>39600938counting votes and writing
>>39600938You move next to Trista and lift up her face to see yours. She stops crying for the moment and that’s when you move in to kiss her passionately as you wrap your arms around her. You can feel her heartbeat racing and flutter. After a few more long momements of kissing, you move your head back to see her face. She is utterly shocked, so much so that she has stopped crying altogether. You speak saying, “Don’t worry Trista, just remember I love you and that no matter what I always will. Besides we’ll be rangers together, won’t that be fun?”Trista still has that shocked look on her face, but after a few seconds she snaps to. “...Oh! Yes Randal you have a point, and I feel the same way. I too will always love you, no matter what. But I think the recent events have taken my remaining energy out of me.” Trist rises up from the couch as do you. She begins to head up the stairs but stops and walks back to hug you. “Thank you Randal, for the wonderful day you’ve given me, and I’m sorry for crying in front of you.”“Think nothing of it Trista, now you said you were tired, so go get some sleep.” you say as you pat her on the back and release her.“Alright, and Randal... you should head home and get some rest too.” She says with a smile as she walks up the stairs.When you hear Trista’s door close you gather your things and head out to go home. When you walk outside you notice its starting to get pretty dark as the sun has already set. You hurry home and find that your father still hasn’t come back yet. He must be very busy today to be out this late. You don’t think much of it and head to bed. Okay, I can still keep going guys, but what about you? I don’t really want of repeat of last night.
>>39601584Well, it is late for me, so I'll vote to break for the evening/thread.
>>39601584I'm heading to bed mate, but I'm sure others might stay here for longer.
>>39601584I can go a little longer but I'm kinda worn out. I'd vote for a break for the evening.
>>3960158410/10 thread by the way, I'm enjoying this quest, it feels like a nice break from the quests that are running currently.And it gives me some nostalgia because I kinda missed this "style"
>>39601584okay, the quest will most likely be up again tuesday, as always, check the twitter for updates.>>39601719thanks anon, i greatly appreciate it, i was thinking i pissed everyone off when i fell asleep. Also sorry for the lack of combat so far.
>>39601819No worries, I expect we'll run into some combat during our trip to become a ranger, maybe...How do you plan it to be?Tactical? Crunchy? Fluffy?
>>39601861i would say more so tactical, think the way the combat flows in Holy Sword Quest, that's what my combat system is based off of.
>>39601921Alright, that's cool. thanks for running mate.
>>39601921Ah, okay I like that than's for running Chills.
>>39601819No worries. I also fell asleep and just woke up now.>>39600162>>39600651>>39596550>Thinking on that, it reminds you of both Princess Lydia and Trista. You actually think to yourself that Sindas is toying with you by having two of her favored children vying for your affection.So what is the view on polygyny by society and by Sindas?
>>39602670polygamy is taboo by both the gods and society, but you know of past lords and kings who had several lovers whilst only having one wife by law, and even rarer a few ladies who did the same but with men.
>>39602744fuck forgot to put my name back on, sorry
