You idle near the archer for a bit, trying to come up with something worth doing-Really, adding prisoners to your guard routine wasn't an improvement so much as a tremendous detriment. You'd briefly consider lashing them all to a log raft and just hoping it got to a city before they starved or got eaten or the whole thing capsized or-Anyway, that line of thought is why you abandoned the plan in the end. And the whole situation is that much worse because the while lot of them are moping and generally depressed. Yes, of course you expect them to be punished. If they didn't want to get in trouble then they porbably shouldn't have decided to make a career out of banditry and murder and highway robbery.Finally, with a sigh, you dismiss the whole discussion from your mind, and wander your way through the slow moving carriages, looking for- Ah ha."Kenzington! Yes, hello."The stocky caravan master is fanning himself with a decidedly large wooden spoon, sweat beading on his forehead. He makes the barest nod in your direction in response, clearly doing his utmost to avoid any sort of movement at all."Lyra. Please don't tell me ya somehow managed to find more trouble."You frown. "Of course not. That is what I am looking for now, yes."He groans, sweeping his brow and sitting a little taller."What're ya after now, then?""A bit of hunting, if I can. Even if it's just a meal for myself. Staying in place is making me go crazy."
>>40644448oh shit, this is running today?>Your shift is up now that Triss is here. Head up to the front and check the pace.Let's go wander about the caravan.

Dunno how the hells you're alright with this kinda heat."You shrug."Dry heat is not so bad, yes? Humidity is worse. Anyway, Sheszka cools everything around her."He waves you off dismissively, shaking his head."Arright, you have fun and- What was that last bit?""I don't like humidity?""The other one.""Sheszka is always cool?""I will trade you the rights to unlimited hunting for the wolf.""I am not in the habit of bargaining away family, yes."He sighs dramatically, collapsing backwards into the rolling wooden contraption."Fine, fine. I'll trade ya today's hunt for the story of how a wolf is family then.""I will see you at dinner, then."You skitter for the treeline, rushing past the brush and into the welcoming embrace of shade. There isn't much in the way of a breeze, not with the raised road just behind you, but the air is noticeably cooler down here. Birds sing and insects buzz as you head into the thickening woods.>Pick a direction, and eat the first thing you come across. >Go fast!

You briefly entertain the thought of setting off in a random direction- it is, after all, easy to find your way back, what with the road following the river. However- There's still work to be done. Not caravan work. Spider work. Lyra work. Work that you have created for yourself. Specifically, your plan to train your reptilian friend into a powerhouse snake monster! Of course, the reality of the situation is that you never actually planned that, and technically she asked to get stronger with the intent of getting bigger, and you may be mildly motivated by an absurd and potentially perverse desire to see her in some sort of 'X-TREME GLADIATOR' type arena. Only with fangs and scales instead of repulsion batons or whatever the hell it was the used. Tiny Animal Murder Arena is currently off the table, anyway, upon threats of biting. So it's with a heavy heart that you pick up the scent of some animals and trail through the woods, dragging a snake from your neck and slowly waking her by raising the temperature of your hands. "NnnnnNnnnnnnooooooo-"Her tiny cries echo through the woods as you thunder forwards."Hush, you.""You can't make me exercissssse-""Of course I can.""What."You gesture with your spear as you face forwards, still following a trail of scent."I could throw you at a monster. Or build little mazes like dungeons, and put your food at the end. Or maybe I could-""Don't you dare! Don't you daaaaaare!"You laugh a little as you trample another wayward bush, daring to stand before your progress.
>>40647569And then you emerge into a scenic wonderland, flowers blooming, birds chirping- a rabbit gently dipping itself to drink from a placid pond.And next to the little fluffball is another rabbit. Only this one is the size of a bear, and covered in spikes and bone-spurs, red eyes glowing with deadly intent. You stop and stare."Thisss is all your fault.">You take the big one, I'll deal with the rest!>Would a bear sized rabbit taste like bear or rabbit?>I'll just be leaving then.>Other (?)

>>40647590>bear sized rabbitA thought occurs. There is never just /one/ rabbit. If the local environment caused one to evolve into rabbitzilla.....
>>40647590>Other>Ask Ezzy if she'd rather fight a bear sized rabbit or a hundred rabbit sized bears.
>>40647698Ezzy can kill its babies and enjoy the taste!
Depending on how this goes I might make an RE: Rabbit quest one off of this, that will likely end predictably.
>>40647776Are you ScrewHue?
>>40647698It's almost a shame to kill it. Imagine how long a road that rabbit must have traveled, to go from being the weakest of prey to this hulking monster.How much it !ust have fought, and won, to have evolved to this level.It really is a rare monster.
>>40647821Rare monster, you say? Sell it's parts like they're used in chinese medicine!
>>40647821We should adopt it as a pet, let it grow strong on our travels, and when we have decided that it has reached optimum tastiness, we eat it!
>>40647821We could try to tame it.But our curiosity for what it tastes like won't allow that.Bye, rabbitbear.

>>40647996Oh, I thought you meant eventually breeds like a rabbit.
>>40647996So the Hue's gain dice-power the more bad-ends they write, or is it related to how much gore and smut they have in their minds at the time?

You lick your lips. You can't help it!It's a giant rabbit. A Giant Rabbit! Rabbits taste good from the start. Not bears, but- Wait, this one is as big as a bear. Maybe it tastes different? Maybe it tastes better. Like- Like a mix between rabbit and bear. That sounds amazing. You want this. You want to eat this."Lyra? Lyra, are you drooling right now?"You hastily slurp the trail of saliva pouring past your lips back into your mouth."What? No. No, definitely not, yes.""You were sssso!"You lean forward, unleashing the snake into the grassy clearing. She stares accusingly at you, her spear clutched in both hands."Never. Never ever. Why don't you fight the little one? It will be good training. And I will eat the big one. Grill it. Fight. Fight it! Yes."Her eyes narrow and she hisses, tongue flicking past her lips as she stretches her syllables out."You have to sssshare!"Your eyes flick distractedly between her and the glowering bearabbit. "Huh? Yes. Yes. I couldn't eat all that anyway."She's still staring.You surrender."Fine. I could, yes? I could eat all the rabbit-bear until I was like a spider balloon and I had to be rolled back to the caravan. But I won't and I will share. I promise."She snorts and nods in acceptance, and makes to slither forwards, heading to the smaller rabbit. She can't keep her tail-tip from wagging behind her, though. Maybe she should be taking lessons from Sheszka.
>>40648649You step properly into the clearing, spear lowered and ready, legs clicking menacingly- birds take flight, bugs cease their monotonous whine-And the rabbit launches itself at your without a sound, nose wiggling once before it hurtles forwards, spinning midair to deliver a two-footed kick, driving you back, your sharp feet leaving eight identical furrows beneath you.You drive forwards even before it touches ground, and it twists itself, spinning to ward away your blade- You draw blood all the same, a long crimson stripe marring it's hide as it thuds heavily to the dirt, righting itself and facing you again. Ezzy, being a highly poisonous snake-girl, not to mention armed with a spear, is up against a conventional rabbit. Which is to say that in the interim she has reduced the thing to body, and has even found another rabbit to spar against, fending off another of the horned things she hunted back home.You idly wonder how many rabbits are around as the creature's legs tense again, its whole body tilting forward as it starts to charge->Take it head on, grapple it!>Let it ram an earth wall.

You brace your spear, preparing to stop the rabbits charge. Suddenly you are both interrupted by a shout from the side "FIVE!", "Three, sir!" a second voice quickly corrected, immediately followed by the shout of "THREE!". An object is thrown in between you and the rabbit, you both spend a moment very confused before you frantically attempt to scramble backwards. A scramble that was sadly too little too late, the last thing you see is the lords glorious light as it surrounds you and the rabbit in its holy, eviscerating embrace. >Reroll character.

The thing is levelling horns at you this time- a gently curving pair that ends in a vicious point, angled forwards and up. It looks like a rabbit that's learned to fight by watching cows. Are there monster cows? Would monster cows taste better than even a regular cow?Thoughts about food and dinner and the kinds of spices that go well with rabbit flicker through your mind as you level your spear, the tip spiking into the dirt and holding it steady- The rabbit is already airborne, its steps sending it almost floating over the ground, though it moves at a speed that would make it hard for even Sheszka to keep up.Of course, all this just means that the rabbit itself is providing all the power your weapon needs- the creature releases a bellowing squeak as it impales itself, forcing the spear further into the dirt. You raise your shield, but the horns never reach you, the cross pattern of your spear both stopping the creature's attack as well as limiting your own damage.The thing would have skewered itself all the way through if not for the block holding it back.Ezzy is taking a small legion of rabbits to pieces- though it seems she's fallen back on biting when the numbers start to grow out of control, her venom evident with the number or sickly looking twitching rabbits strewn about her. There's a low crack of bone that you catch thanks to your elfen ears, the lamia's tail tightening and twisting round the neck of a horned rabbit even as she fends off another.She's even laughing.
>>40649727Nin was right, Ezzy does get really into fighting once she starts.Is it a carnivore thing, maybe? A snake thing? Jin likes showing off, and Sheszka seems to like sparring and such. But that's more sport than bloodlust.You shrug it off, dancing around the massive rabbit even as it tries to roll at you, a shield of spines and bone that strips the bark from a tree as it collides with it. >Force it into the trees, it can't fight like this there!>Harry it, wear it out!>Catch it with your legs, trust your own armour!>Other (?)

So, Ezzy is commiting rabbit genocide.Any bets on her coming evolution?More venomous snake? Bigger snake?Golden jewelery snake?Ssssshiva Goddess of war snake?
>>40650133Strength enough not to be pulled from her warm spot
>>40650133>Bigger snake?More than likely, She is a constrictor afterall
>>40650133>multi-armed snek>"Ssso many rabbitsss to sssssstrangle, ssso little time"Fund it.
>>40650158Too bad we can just turn down the heating.
>>40650133Areña gladiator snake
ah ezzy. The berzerker rage is stroong in you. FEEL THE JOY OF THE BLOODLUST!
>>40649727>The thing is levelling horns at you this time- a gently curving pair that ends in a vicious point, angled forwards and up.Aww. Anyone want to add curving horns to this?
You pursue your quarry, even as it turns again to challenge you, pitting your spear against its horns, forcing it backwards, to the roots, the trees, the forest.Blood stains its fur- each pounding beat of its heart forcing another gout of life from its veins, killing it as surely as any poison.Its legs tremble as it tries again to charge, and you fend off its efforts, clashing, forcing it back. Pinning it between you and no escape.Somewhere behind you, a snake laughs triumphantly. With every slash, every poke, every attack you make, the rabbit's confidence erodes, fear replacing stubbornness, its eyes no longer chasing your body for an opportunity to attack; rather, flicking past you, tracing trails into the forest where it could flee. Legs tense again beneath it, muscles swelling as it readies itself for another dash- You slam a spiked foot forwards, shocking it into movement: a spray of dirt and a collision with the ground all it can manage in its panic. It backs away again, and you follow once more, closing in, weapon raised.It shifts its weight, and one heavy paw slips- and it's all the space you need, spear swooping in to pierce its neck, forcing its head to the ground even as it kicks, trying to drive forwards, one last attempt as its breath leaves it on the forest floor. You drive your weapon sideways, through its spine, and let loose a sigh of relief as you feel the bone snap under your efforts. A glance over your shoulder reveals an enthusiastic snake atop a small pile of rabbits.You really hope she knows which ones she bit and which ones she didn't.
>>40650858Jin is even raising her head, feathery tufts shifting as she scents her favourite food. Her eyes crack open blearily, and her head swings back as though it were on a hinge, mouth open wide, tongue dangling past her delicate fangs."Nuuuh."You blink slowly."Nuuuuuh!""Jin, I am not your mother, yes?"The harpy closes her mouth while the snake giggles, half amusement and half adrenaline. Jin tilts her head to one side, then the other, her owlish behaviour only apparent in her sleeping habits and her ability to twist her head in really weird ways.>Collect snake. Collect food. Return to Wagons.>A little barbecue here would be fine, right?>Feed Jin a bit of rabbit now. Not too much. She'll definitely want rabbit-zilla.>Other (?)
>>40650873>Collect snake. Collect food. Return to Wagons.
>>40650873>>Collect snake. Collect food. Return to Wagons.
>>40650873>>Collect snake. Collect food. Return to Wagons.All Hail Ezzy! Bane of Lagomorphs!
>>40650873> Collect snake. Collect food. Return to wagons.> Jin is a big girl now. She can feed herself.> More precisely, we only spoil her after she does her fair share of the skinning and disemboweling.
>>40650873>>Feed Jin a bit of rabbit now. Not too much. She'll definitely want rabbit-zilla.>>Collect snake. Collect food. Return to Wagons.>>Other (?)Congratulate snek!
>>40650873>Collect snake. Collect food. Return to Wagons.Can't spoil her too much. She can eat / be fed while we're telling Kenzinton his story at supper.
>>40650873>Feed Jin a bit of rabbit now. Not too much. She'll definitely want rabbit-zilla.
>>40650998>>40650930Bad anons. Bad! Stop enabling the lazy harpy. You want her to grow? To become a unique and interesting character? We need to slowly move her away from (admittedly adorable) dependency for that to work.
>>40651043Jeez what next? Expecting us to stop with petting our adorable gaggle of monsters girls? WE DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM!
Play the hit CSW!(Collectible Snake Warrior)Writing!
>>40651043Considering this might be the only onteraction we will have with Jin for several weeks, due to this quests pacing, I take the risk.
>>40651079Is there trading cards for that game?
>>40651156No, just trading snakes.
>>40651156Only if we make them. I propose thin metal cards
>>40651170Only snakes you say?Delicious, tasty snakes?Count me in.
>>40651176Every region we travel to gets a basic pack, as well as a special collectible card given only to that region. It encourages trading.
>>40651193Watch out for solar powered Murder lizards Harpy.
>>40651202I seriously hope that this is gonna end up like the not!Warhammer game in Banished
>>40651226Nah, we'll make it Pokemon instead. Gotta catch'em all! Monstergirls, that is.
>>40651248Sounds like a plan. Also, if we make the metal cards right, they could be used as the plates of a printing press which wouldn't be too hard to make
>>40651296The end goal will be to unite the races of the world in their love for monstergirls through trading cards. World Peace True End.
>>40651335Nin prints a Lyra card in secret. Lyra becomes famous among humans without realizing. A true Waifu War begins.
>>40651397"W-what is this? They are warring over me? It was meant to be a joke, yes. They are just cards, people!"
>>40651431Your mistake was making a children's card game. Those always have life-or-death consequences.
>>40651431 "But Lyra, think of the possibilities. You could marry the winner. the strongest! cementing your authority among more than the monster races!"
>>40651091If you want to talk to Jin more then we ought to take the night shift more often. Sleepy bird bad for talking.
>>40651472"I even had your sister help me in designing a special Wedding Dress Lyra card, to be given to the victor of the monster tournament!"
>>40651486We never had the option to do that, nor are we likely to get the option to do that.
>>40651505Nin, is secretly the best player and is guaranteed to win the monster tournament.
>>40651553"Nin, if you enter the tournament, I will make the final match a 1 on 1 match against my mother in an arena. Best of 3 wins."
>>40651553Then there is only one option: take up the game ourselves amd win our own freedom from our insane (but well-meaning) moth friend's machinations.
>>40651609I don't think Nialla would be very good at childrens card games.Dad though...
>>40651647She's a giant spider, and a master of weapons. She'll just papercut her foe to death and get the judge to DQ them for slow play.
>>40651647Who said anything about a children's card game for the final match?
>>40651732The fact that its a card tournament.
>>40651732The ultimate challenge, the men who have dedicated years to win Lyra's hand through a card game, and won the Grand Tourney Now have to get her to like them, as a person. None shall succeed.
>>40651773"Lyra, why does your mother have a spear?""You'll be fighting her, yes! Card fights are a good way to pick out the best strategists, but my mom wants to make sure whoever wins this is able to apply that knowledge in life-or-death situations, yes! Have fun!"
>>40651830>Sleep dustNin is probably the only who can actually win that challenge.
>>40651830Now I'm imaging Nin dodging Lyra's mom's spear thrusts while playing cards against her dad.
We no longer need the tiny animal murder arena
>>40651956Or we could make the arena itself out of the tiny murdered animals. I'm sure a colosseum of rabbit skulls would get Ezzy in the mood for kill.
You momentarily ignore your feathered friend's head rotating like she's possessed, opting instead to scoop the bloody little murder snake from the ground. She spirals around your wrist as soon as you reach for her, hands crossed over her chest and quite possible the most smug smile you have ever seen on anyone plastered straight across her face."Did you see?"You resist the urge to roll your eyes, but you can't keep the smile from your face."A little, yes.""They were nothing!""They were rabbits. Which is technically something."She huffs a little, flipping her hair out of her face."I wassss amazing."You pat her head gently as she celebrates, a little twisting dance across your arm. She directs you proudly as you separate the rabbits into piles- Edible for people, edible for Ezzy, and Edible for Lyra because she will bite anyone who touches her giant rabbit.And then you wrap each in turn, and start hauling your way back towards the road.Ezzy lets you stash her spear away before she moves up your arm to your throat, smearing blood all over your arm and neck as she goes. Though she is, apparently, far too wired to actually fall asleep- giggling and hugging her twitching tail-tip as you travel.You manage to get halfway back to the road- though the caravan has undoubtedly moved since- before Jin is in any state of awareness to move around. You're alerted to the fact when the whispery sound of feathers shifting is replaced by a trilling hoot followed immediately by "Rabbits?"You smile, and Esmerelda starts in with a cackle."Not anymore!"You stroke her coils softly as you phrase your own reply."We have a lot of rabbits, yes."
>>40651956>tiny animal murder arenaThat will be the name of the card game, of course.
>>40652041"Now?""And good morning to you to, Jin.""Mmm. It is day, Lyra.""But if you are awake at night, doesn't that mean that sunset is morning?"The harpy closes her eyes momentarily to consider it, but she shakes her head."Morning is morning and day is day and night is night.""Well, then. Good day, Jin.""Good day Lyra. Good day, Ezzy."You smile and stay on track, dragging what is likely a ton of rabbit behind you."How have the nights been, yes? You and Sheszka have been working hard.""I get to sit and watch at night. And if something appears, I make light. Or fight it.""Mhm."She ruffles her feathers carefully, smiling."What are the days like?""I walk a lot. It is boring."The conversation is back and forth as the sun dips ever lower, the creak of wagons and the occasional neigh of a horse the only sound as you close on the caravan once more.
>>40652057And that will be all for tonight!A thursday thread should be manageable this week. I'll try to get it up and running earlier than this one started, hopefully.As usual, comments, questions and all that answered in thread!
>>40652081Thanks for the run REQM! So how many more big monsters does Lyra need to fight? And how many more for Ezzy?
>>40652081Thanks for running.Could Lyra get a night shift at some point, or is she too useful at day?
>>40652081Thanks for running, is there anywhere I can find a list of deities and blessings/curses they can bestow in this setting? I'm running a campaign using double cross as a loose base and could use some lore help...
>>40652081Thanks for running, boss.Snake confirmed for tiny, adorable psychopath?
>>40652129She's too big to sleep in a wagon during the day for a night shift.
>>40652146Evening-to-night or early morning shift would work just as well.I just don't want us ending up to not really interacting with Jin and Sheszka for another 30 threads, after it had become slightly better before we left with the caravan.
>>40652129They have literally been delegating the night shifts by which side Lyra is sleeping on, as nothing is insane enough to attack the caravan from the giant spider side of the camp.
>>40652186That has nothting to do with the question though?
>>40652228Essentially, Lyra is a part of the night shift, by sole virtue of whichever side she sleeps on is safe from assault.
>>40652270That still has nothing to do with the question.We already knew that much anyway.
>>40652100A number between one and thematically appropriateEzzy is closer due to what she has to do to level up; Namely, not fight huge monsters. Lyra might beat her simply due to being awake more often and doing things.>>40652129Lyra's problem is her huge ass, and its inability to fit into a cart containing anything else. >>40652143I don't think there's anything official, outside of a few named in the LN/Comic. For the most part, it seems to not give anything an actual name, opting instead for 'God of' or 'Demi-god of' and then listing their main aspect. You can use the elements of course, and then just run with anything else you want.>>40652145Snake isn't so much a psychopath as she simply feels absolutely nothing when it comes to food. Also, the combat rush and her newfound ability to do things gets her all riled up.Lyra's vaguely worried that she's raising a battle junkie to rival her mother.And of course Lyra is completely unaware of the irony of the above statement.>>40652169I'll do my best to work in some interaction. If nothing else, rotating the night shift will happen.
>>40652296Lyra is not a battle junkie. She just likes finding Big things. And then killing them. And then eating them.
>>40652296>>40652342Lyra, battle junkie or just glutton?
>>40652296Lyra is a foodie, not a battle junkie!
>>40652296Evo is coming up, right? Can we get some hints? Please? Even a name or two.
>>40652296Any way for us to help Sheszka/Jin get their evo faster? I assume their night guard duties don't get them much XP.
So, when do we start getting spider-fat?
>>40652145>>40652143>>40652129>>40652100Thanks for playing!>>40652342>>40652360>>40652367I'm pretty sure it's both. The true test will come when she has to choose between hunting something strong or hunting something delicious.Like, a bear or a golem. >>40652599They're making progress. With the way the last bit has been, I've been bad about updating the pastes. I'll try to make some progress there and with the .pdf before next thread.>>40652557Potential evolutions include such things as:Tyrant Arachne, Deinos Arachne, Sovereign Arachne, Grave Lord Arachne, Cinder Arachne>>40652791Whenever you stop walking all day and spending the energy you eat.
>>40652875Grave Lord...sounds interesting, and tells me nothing at the same time. Curse you You Magnificent spider.
>>40652875>Grave Lord ArachneThat's pretty fuckin Nito
>>40652875Thanks for running.As long as we keep the skull, I'm happy.
>>40652875>Grave Lord ArachneSKUUUUUUUULLS
>>40652907>>40652875Though at the same time, I'm curious as to what the other ones are, and how we fit the bill for them
>>40652875Which is biggest spiderbutt?
>>40652875>Grave Lord ArachneDoes that mean a bigger skill for more monster transportation?alright, rampant speculationTyrant Arachne>Probably from our "acquire followers by murdering the shit out of their previous leader. Basically the "Rule of the Strong" evo.Deinos Arachne>Deinos means terryfying, so I assume at least in part it comes from our intimidating things into obedience, even if that overlaps with Tyrant. Maybe this one is more combat focused?Sovereign Arachne>Seems obvious as leadership and "protect our followers" evoGrave Lord Arachne>Just the Lord to our Grave Arachnes Half-Lord, pretty straight forward.Cinder Arachne>Heat/Lava evo
>>40652875>Tyrant Arachne, Deinos Arachne, Sovereign Arachne, Grave Lord Arachne, Cinder ArachneDo we already qualify for all of those?Did you already decide on doing the dream-sequence to introduce them before choosing? With 5 options, that vote is going to be a real headache.
>>40653010In our letter to mom "Mom, you arent going to believe this, I evolved again! and get this, in my dream, I GOT TO PICK HOW I EVOLVED!"P.S. I also discovered a wonderful plant called 'coffee'. I'll share some next time I see you."Assuming I remembered the talk with REQM about evolutions properly.
>>40652935Thanks for playing!>>40652907>>40652915>>40652941It comes with a free sword made of bones, and the ability to make enemies stronger for other parties!This is a joke. >>40653000Tyrant and Deinos are about the same size of spiderbutt.>>40653048You haven't qualified for everything, and there are more that aren't listed.The dream sequence was decided upon- It'll give a short 'feeling' about each evolution, possibly an impression of the physical changes and the name of the ones you qualify for.
>>40653010>Deinos means terryfying, so I assume at least in part it comes from our intimidating things into obediencePretty sure that went into Tyrant mostly, and Deino is more the "giant Alpha Predator" evolution.
>>40653144>"Shit Bob, this bitch qualifies for like, six evolutions. The fuck do we do, six yes or no questions can't fit into a single night!">"Just halfass a dream sequence, they'll even feel special about it."
>>40653205I just keep imagining a t-rex/spider cross and I can't stop smiling oh god I want it
>>40653010>Sovereign ArachneNooooooo. We don't need to give Nin anymore justification to go around proclaiming us as Queen of the Forest.
>>40653212>Anon liking dream sequence evo optionsHahahahahahahaha!
>>40653212The Fate Spider is just laughing madly in the background, the Wenidago God is in the corner drinking away his issues
>>40653298That is pretty damn laughable!
>>40653212>>40653244I nearly want all of our evos be "presented" by a appropriate NPC praising its virtues, just so we can get everyone saying stuff likeGrave Lord>Nialla: "Prepare yourself for more sparring, upstart!"Tyrant>Sheszka: "My Alpha is the STRONGEST!"And Sovereign is just dreamNin hyperventilating in excitement.
>>40653435>And Sovereign is just dreamNin hyperventilating in excitement.That's how the Wenidogoes knew they could stop the Spider! IT WAS A PLOT ALL ALONG
This was posted in a drawthread a couple of weeks ago.
>>40653902Moth with tiny rapier is 2cute but not terribly accurate. Not that I am complaining.Also dat scowl.
So where do you see Spider ending?
