The campfire crackles merrily, the flames licking upwards, slowly roasting your meal-to-be.The rabbits, specifically. The little ones cooked fast enough. Ezzy even managed to wrangle herself awake long enough to eat one of her own kills, though she pointed accusingly from you to the giant rabbit before she passed out.You'll... probably save her some.For the moment, though, Jin and Sheszka are bouncing around the cooking meat, both excited for the meal. Gluttons, the both of them. Nin is seated at you side, a small log all she needs for comfort. All of them are lit by the fire, pale skin and feathers and fur reflecting light- Sheszka and Jin both looking like they're glowing, while Nin's golden patterns seem like they're flowing in the dancing light. You give the rabbit another turn, wood creaking beneath the weight of the slab you've set to roast.There's a bit of time before your friend's shifts start, at least. The caravan found a good site for the evening and shut down early, pitching tents and making ready for the night.>Chat with your friends. (About?)>Build your tent.

In case some people don't read until the end of the threads, we got names for five possible evolutions last time.Tyrant Arachne, Deinos Arachne, Sovereign Arachne, Grave Lord Arachne, Cinder ArachneLast time we got info on it, we apparently already qualified for 3 and nearly for 1, and had a few more available.
>>40681302So, Powerful leader, Wonderfully fear inducing, Rightful Leader, Lord variant of what we already are, or fire specialized. Dammit Nin.
>>40681422>Wonderfully fear inducingDeinos is probably more the next stage of Grave Arachnes "Alpha Predator"-type evolution.
>>40681447Wouldn't Grave Lord be the next stage?
>>40681480Grave Lord is the Lord evolution, as in, the stage after Half-Lord we juust skip that one.
>>40681302My opinion:I don't want Tyrant. It's mainly the name that bugs me.I'd like Grave Lord if it gives more skulls, otherwise I don't care.I'm split between Deinos, Sovereign, and Cinder.However, due to variants it might be possible to have a sort-of combination of two. Maybe more if we're lucky. I'm thinking Cinder is the easiest to replace with a variant.For example: Vulcan/Prometheus variant for Sovereign, and Surtur variant for Deinos.
>>40681785I'm getting from Wiktionary that surtur is Icelandic for nigger.I think you need to explain what you mean.
>>40681785We don't qualify for some of those, and some we do qualify for aren't on that list.Personally, I'm METAL SPIDAH all the way.
>>40681785>I don't want Tyrant. It's mainly the name that bugs me.I never really understand this mindset of "names are bad". Its not like it makes Lyra any worse a person. I mean, we are a a GRAVE arachne right now, with skullbutt and stuff.Tyrant doesn't sount so bad.Though I don't care for what I imagine it represents anyway.I definitly prefer Deino.>>40681819He probably means Surtr, the Fire Giant of Norse myth.
>>40681819Surtur is the norse mythology's king of fire giants.
Weren't we supposed to tell Kenzington the tale of how we acquired Shezka today?In any case, Tyrant sounds pretty metal, as do deinos and Grave Lord.Cinder is pretty cool, simply because I'd imagine it plays the visibility of our fire nature up even more and there are few arguments that hold in the face of glowing ominously.I'm honestly not interested at all in Sovereign.For all that Nin's queen stuff is amusing and might even be something to look into at some point, I don't feel it's central enough of character motive of Lyra to justify the corresponding evolution.Neither ruling nor being inherently above others is something that seems to fit her. She's way too face smashy for that right now.
>>40681785Deinos or Cinder would be my choices so far.
>>40681819I mean Surtur/Surtr, the fire giant destined to burn down the sky and pretty much everything except Yggdrasil at Ragnarok.That's pretty scary.
>>40681830>We don't qualify for some of those, and some we do qualify for aren't on that list.We definitly qualify for all of them to some degree, and I think its very likely that all three we qualify for are among those 5 names.By the time we actually do evolve, matters will likely be different though.
Personally going to hold off on making a decision until I have more than just the names.
>>40681875We probably won't until the actual evolution dream.I imagine that will be pretty chaotic though, we'll probably going to need a FD or two to sort through all those choices.
>>40681830I'd go for Royal variant Deinos Arachne. Figuring out what it takes to have lava/liquid metal come out of our Skull butt when we use our power would be pretty awesome though.
>>40681841>>40681833>>40681834Oh, that sounds much more cool than being a racial slur.>>40681875I think that whilst people are making decisions now, they will inevitably change their minds when they find out exactly what their preferred choice of butt is like.
>>40681871That's what REQM said at the end of last thread, we qualify for some of those, don't qualify for some of those five, and qualify for some that aren't among those five.We can qualify for more than 3 evolutions at once, it's just the last time it happened we didn't understand that we had a NEXT PAGE button.
>>40681890It will quite probably be a thread full of terrible arguments.
>>40681302Damn Kay remains so much better at this evolution thing than me. Gotta work harder.
>>40681900>it's just the last time it happened we didn't understand that we had a NEXT PAGE buttonUhm, yes we did understand that? We already knew that since the first evolution.Thats how evolutions work here.We just wanted Grave Arachne, or didn't mind it enough to skip further.>That's what REQM said at the end of last threadNo, he said we haven't qualified for everything and that there are more 'potential' evolutions that aren't listed. He never said we qualify for any that aren't listed.Its possible we do, but it seems very unlikely to me. No particular reason he wouldn't just use the three we already qualify for.>>40681913But I loved Skullbutt vs. Fluffybutt arguments.
>>40681896>Oh, that sounds much more cool than being a racial slur.Well, it means "the black" in this case referring to soot.
Staring at your food isn't helping cook it. It could, potentially, with an appropriate application of magic, but at this point you'd rather just leave it be. So you stand with a sigh, brushing your hair from your face and setting yourself to work on the tent.Which is really more of a house frame with a tarp thrown over it, but the important thing is that you fit, and everyone else fits, and it keeps the rain out. Your friends divert their attention equally between the cooking meal and you- Except for the resident moth, who is delicately nibbling a pile of leaves rather than waiting with bated breath for freshly roasted rabbit.Well, since you already have their attention, you might as well do something with it."So."Eyes flick towards the meat, fat starting to drip clearly from it, the fire splashing higher with each drop. But their faces are turned to you."How has the trip been, yes? So far?"Jin and Sheszka glance to each other and shrug, while Nin chimes in all on her own."It's been a bit long? It is fine though, I make my own fun.""You make your own trouble.""My trouble is harmless. Your trouble is bandits and gryphons."You open your mouth to reply, but wind up biting your lip instead. That's- Well, she's not wrong. But you don't go looking for that sort of thing. Not all the time.Nin nods to herself at your silence, apparently pleased, and you allocate a half-second to dreams of revenge before the pair of night-guards chime in all on their own."Staying up late was hard. To start. Yes.""It was easy.""That is because you sleep all day."Jin ruffles her feathers in response as you watch on."I get sleepy."You interrupt them before they can start to squabble."So you are both better now? How is your work?""Easy." "Boring."They both nod."Boring and Easy," they say in unison."I see, yes."
>>40681979Jin pipes up again as you switch back to turning the rabbit, her voice slurring a little as she starts to drool. "Triss let me try a crossbow.""Yes?""It is hard to shoot with my feet. And she kept laughing."You mentally repress the urge to giggle at the though of Jin struggling to fire a crossbow with both feet. And likely rolling backwards with the recoil, and ending up upside down against the fence and squawking-You nod repeatedly, slicing of hunks of meat, dropping them onto a freshly made set of stone plates. You just return them to the earth when you're done, and make more when you need them. It makes dishwashing much easier."I am sure you will get the hang of it eventually, yes.""I will use my stars, I think. Or my claws.">Tell them what you've been up to. An edited version.

>>40682046I sent an email? I don't remember that
Time to share your own story!>>40682154A few days ago? June 12th. 6 days ago.
>>40682015Pretty fucking nice. The only problems are little things like threads ending with only a few lines on a new page, but other than that the format is fuck nice, especially with the line dividers.Unfortunately I cannot access the files so the font I cannot comment on.The only improvement I can suggest for sure is make sure that grammar is checked and correct Not that I found any but AVOID altering past events, that's how web novels end up straying from the printed ones.That, and setting up some links at the beginning so that we can skip to the threads we want.A lick of cream on a cupcake makes an ice-cream not.
>>40681997>Tell them what you've been up to. An edited version. In your favour.>>40682015Looks good to me, formatting is fine.
You busy yourself with their gear, checking metal and leather and silk for any issues or scrapes or tears- all the while murmuring as best you can around a mouthful of bear-rabbit.It is good, too. Not really bear flavoured, though. More like really good rabbit? Like... how are you supposed to describe rabbit that tastes like rabbit, but better? More rabbity? No. That doesn't make sense.You wipe your chin with one hand, the other smoothing away dents in Sheszka's gauntlets.It doesn't really matter, right? It tastes good, and they're eating well, and you've already secured a bit for Ezzy. This meal has been efficient;ly dealt with. "How about you?""Huh?"You're left making a noise highlighting your lack of understanding, your brain trying to catch up to your friends talking to you.You focus your attention on your less-spidery sister, the wolf cleaning her face in a rag before she repeats her question."How has the trip been? For you, yes.""Ah."You pause a moment to consider a reply- and then leap into action as Nin's face cracks into a wide smile, her mouth already half-open, undoubtedly prepared to lace your friends with her lies-"IT WAS GOOD YES.""Lyra?""Um. It was good. Boring, yes? Lots of walking. I am too big to fit in the wagons with anything else.""Oh.""But I get to hunt sometimes, yes? Like the rabbits.""And the gryphon.""Yes, Nin, and the gryphon. And there were bandits who had planned to attack-""-They were scared of Lyra and didn't, though."You sigh."Yes, they tried to run away. And I tracked them with Triss, and now we will take them to the guards, yes.""At Oakring?" Jin ponders quizzically."No, no- Every city and town has guards. Big ones will have more and little ones less.""So there will be a lot of guards at the city, then?"
>>40682890You nod."There will be a lot of people at the city. More than you have ever seen, yes? Houses and castles and streets and walls. And boats big enough to fit all of us, too."Nin folds her arms, hopping to your back and taking a seat before she speaks."Maybe we could take a boat to the elflands, instead.""Maybe.""It would be less walking."That's certainly true.Jin and Sheszka throw you both smiles and waves before they head into the growing dark, leaving the limited glow of cook-fire, heading out to their jobs. And you retreat to your tent, and to the blissful oblivion of dreams.>Find Kenzington in the morning. You do owe him a story. >Wake up early, get a bit of practice in. >Do a once around the camp.

>>40683134>>40683136>>40683141Our early-morning workout rolls have been really mediocre both times now.Mom would be ashamed.
>>40683158Its not like we don't already know the story anyway.
>>40683159We just don't have anyone to spar with who can push us to our limits...
>>40683257I'm pretty confused why we didn't have the option to ask for sparring partners yet.Seems like the obvious thing to do, but maybe the think we would batter them too much to do their jobs.
>>40683288We significantly out stronk our more humanoid traveling companions, and Jin and shez have the opposite shift
>>40683315>We significantly out stronk our more humanoid traveling companionsDoesn't really matter that much when it comes to technique training, and I bet if we spar against several at the same time, they could give us a decent enough challenge.I'm all for more hunting instead though. Gotta gather those achievements.
>>40683362>more huntingaw manI always kinda zone out during hunting and do other things
>>40683362>tfw there isn't enough giant creatures for you to kill
>>40683372More Colossal Game hunting.
>>40683372Matter of taste I suppose, I enjoyed things more when we had a more healthy SoL/Doing stuff ratio.
Someone find Lyra a Giant Carp, or a herd of elephants.
>>40683362The problem with Arachne sparring against anything that isn't another Arachne, is that Arachne are hyper-lethal, if we knock someone over and step on them by accident it's the same as if a spear went through them.Remember, we couldn't get anyone to spar with us back in Oakring because we casually pushed our hand a foot into the earth without magic.Go outside and try to push your hand into the dirt, see how hard it is.
>>40683372That we can't hunt/explore/search for dungeons freely while traveling was why I disliked going with a caravan, I hope we don't do that again once we leave this one.
>>40683433am I allowed to use the KNIFE HAND TECHNIQUE?
After a week, I have finished reading the archive, yes.
>>40683395I'm looking forward to hitting the city. I imagine there will be a literal ton of potential shit for us to get involved in
>>40683433>is that Arachne are hyper-lethalNah, Lyra is perfectly capable of holding herself back.We already spared against a human just fine.>>40683433>Remember, we couldn't get anyone to spar with us back in OakringSomeone sparred with us right after we did that.And we never tried finding a sparring partner afterwards anymore.
What I can't wait for is when someone somewhere makes the mistake of making Lyra absolutely blood boiling furious, that is going to be glorious and/or violent.
>>40683467Very good. It's getting pretty big.>>40683471While I look foreward to hitting the city, I recognize it's a temporary stopoff for us, so we'll only be able to do a FEW city-things there.
>>40682963I'd love to check it out but for some reason it won't load on my iPad (which could just be my shitty internet). The link just shows a blank white screen.If it's a PDF it would be greatly appreciated if someone could upload it here.
>>40683471Yeah, I'm looking forward to that too.>>40683482We aren't really in rush, so I think we can do basically any amount of city things.I REALLY hope we can use the chance to sign up on some dungeon exploring while there.
>>40683478it's going to be nin.
>>40683471We become a gang leader for a week, just for giggles, that gang becomes morally upstanding, all members apply to guard posts.
>>40683507That kind of furious just leads to the lewdbin scenario, don't think thats what anon meant.
>>40683504while we aren't in a rush I recognize that we are in a questing medium and will most likely have to move on before we get to do all the things we want to do.
>>40683478I imagine we would replicate the initial kobold scenario.
>>40683526well, I hope it's from some problem we can't solve with violence.Like paperwork.
>>40683507Nin can only make her frustrated at worst.Blood boilingly furious would be some megalomaniac or sociopath that hurt her friends or such.
>>40683528True, but on the other hand I wouldnt put it past REQM for us to spend 50 threads there.Depending on how much time he intends for us to spend on the road.
>>40683467I just finished reading it too and now in my pnp games it's a struggle not to add 'yes' at the end of every sentence. This is awful.
>>40683557too much burning desire to get to elflands for that.That, and there are multiple cities, so we may get numerous attempts at city-stuff. Assuming they aren't glossed over.
>>40683491There is a .pdf inside, along with other file types.
>>40683458If you want broken fingers, sure, but Lyra did it open-palm.
>>40683433>Remember, we couldn't get anyone to spar with us back in Oakring because we casually pushed our hand a foot into the earth without magic.Except for the guy who did actually spar with us after that?Its just that we found out that even adventurers apparently can' really keep up with us.
>>40683590>too much burning desire to get to elflands for that.There is really only a very limited number of things I'm interested there, I care a lot more about the stuff we can do on the way there.
>>40683605>if you want broken fingersHa, sucker, you underestimate the moistness of my yard.
>>40683644Lyra put her hand through solid rock though.Your muddy aspirations are a far cry from that.
>>40683526I need a link to the lewdbin.
>>40683656It doesn't matter, I have gained a TECHNICAL VICTORY today.The best kind of victory.I will now trade it to unseemly forces for three weeks and three days of good luck.
>>40683667 For research purposes, obviously
>>40683656I'm not sure what point you're trying to make?Humans in this setting are significantly more magic than the anon with the moist yard.While the average human can't keep up with us, adventurers, by trade, deal with fighting monsters. Its more than likely that the more experienced can definitly give Lyra a worthy exercise in group, maybe some even on their own.Its not a real battle, its a training of technique. Lyra knows how to hold herself back strength-wise.>>40683667http://pastebin.com/21Ar7sJY
>>40683708I am half tempted to start writing things after reading that again, but it's more because I want people to write things for me.
Morning comes soon enough, and you drag your chitinous ass out into the rising sun to stretch and warm up.You've got enough time to put yourself through your paces- you went to bed early, and got up when you woke up instead of burrowing back into the covers. And so, spear in hand and dew still littering the cool grass, you set about your practice. You do, however, stray to the side of caution- you might be capable of moving and walking despite exhaustion, especially given the sedate pace of the caravan, but you're fairly certain that that would be a terrible idea.You keep to your forms, running through the routines your mother liberally programmed into your muscles, repetition and instinct moving your weapon more than any higher functions. It's relaxing in its own way, the purity of physical exertion, the quiet of dawn only interrupted by the gentle swoosh of your spear arcing around you. You duel your shadow till the sun turns warm overhead, another promise of a day dry heat. Maybe you'll walk in the river this time. You dab the light sheen of sweat from your forehead as more and more people emerge from their tents, cracking backs with awkward stretches, groaning about uneven ground and the weather, and anything else they can find to complain about.
>>40684031You take the time to stow your things- Tent, tools, blankets, Harpy, Wolf- Breakfast is as fast paced as always, and you hurry yourself out of the circle before people start rushing, watching the whole affair from the raised road. It's a bit like watching insects, really- People scurrying in every which direction, lifting things that seem bigger than them, stowing them as fast as they can, disappearing into their wagons. You giggle a bit at the analogy, polishing off your morning meal just as the first cart starts to move, following a sloping path back to the road.>Go bother someone about time.

>>40684354Haha, oh wow.Do we entangle ourselves again?>>40684374Huh? No? Lyra is usually pretty good at weaving, the second best after Elle.
>>40684354Hahaha, she is more elf than spider. Only her elf fangs work.
>>40684350Where is this from? Please provide the sauce to this disgusting sugary mess.
>>40684354My first critfail. At least it didn't happen in a quest I liked.
>>40684412Rune Factory 3, it's what is going to happen when you romance and marry the Art-obsessed Rainbow-flavored Elf.Don't fall in love with Elves man, it's just heart ache for everyone involved.
>>40684431Fuck you then.
>>40684412Rune Factory 3, a game about Fighting, Farming and a game of who is your chosen Waifu.
>>40684354>That's a nice, err.... tree root cozy?>IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE A HAT!
>>40684446>We try to make a sweater for our friends, y'know, just to keep our spinnerets loose.>Instead we make the first spider cosy.
>>40684432>Try to make a sweater and walk>Two hours later we have a miniature airship model
>>40684434>>40684441tfw I finally realized what happened in the second to llast panel.
We accidentally knit a logo or band name from our world into a shirt, confusion abound
>>40684510Yeah, the PC is like, 18-20ish when you get hitched if you are running a Non-retard run, and romance takes time and effort.So to die of old age...and she hasn't physically or emotionally changed, at all.Don't love Elves man, all it do will end with one of you old and gone and the other still young and heartbroken before moving on a century or three later.
>>40684435Nah. REQM's one of the few QM's I trust not to be a total asshole when the dice turn astray. It would be kind of funny if Lyra somehow knitted her hands together though, and couldn't dissolve them because her silk is fire proof.
>>40684510Look man when its all over she is going to have fond memories of fuzzyness to look back on of a husband who is part sheep and can kick a dragons ass so its all good, I dont doubt the main characters lifespan is longer thans to monster heritage. I am probably deluding myself
>>40684588Clothing vore bad end get?
>>40684588"Lyra? Lyra what's wrong?""I NEED AN ADULT!"
>>40684588Better yet, while Lyra can't use her hands, having a group/monster attack the caravan, forcing her to get creative with her earth powers could be pretty neat.
>>40684588>Nah. REQM's one of the few QM's I trust not to be a total asshole when the dice turn astray.>A QM is a asshole when a crit fail turns out badAre you for real?I mean, obviously not a lot bad can happen for this particular roll, but when a crit fail happens, depending on the situation bad shit happens.>>40684631There is literally nothing preventing Lyra from slicing just through the web.
>>40684631>Help! I can't get my spear!>You have fuckin' spears for legs girl! Use them!Potatoes are not breads.
>>40684651There's a difference between bad shit happening and being an asshole.
>>40684651>I mean, obviously not a lot bad can happen for this particular roll, but when a crit fail happens, depending on the situation bad shit happens.Yes, we end up looking foolish in front of the entire caravan, completely ruining our attempt to look badass.
>>40684651>Are you for real?There's a difference between something bad happens and, whelp time to fuck over the players and alot of anons are really paranoid
>>40684684>alot of anons are really paranoidMy shadowruns are firing all cylinders and scrying the fuck out of every word. Bring it on!
>>40684680>>40684684Except anons cry "asshole QM" all the fucking time whenever any actual bad things happen, no matter how appropriate.Because tgs questing community is full of hugboxy faggots.
>>40684710We accidentally unweave our own skin while trying to weave this piece, we bleed to death in minutes.We drown in clothing.We make a beautiful sweater... that proceeds to dissolve and consume us. Our clothing becomes a sapient abomination and begins to assimilate all cloth on the planet, eventually enslaving arachne, moth, and human kind to produce more cotton, silk, and thread for it to grow with. Everyone is left forever naked.
>>40684729Someone sounds salty
>>40684729Im pretty sure all of the QMs here have suffered from anons crying out "bad QM" when they think things arent going their way 100%. Just look at REQM, Lotus, Lamb, and my most recent threads.
>>40684758>Lyra's frustrated attempts at weaving leaves a broken trail of web behind the caravan attracting a large beast
>>40684729>>40684769>>40684772all of you, put a pin in it. this went from a hilarious conversation about web mishaps to bullshit immediately.
>>40684769Yeah the anons who get all passive agressive when QMs don't coddle them all the time.
I just want Lyra to start tearing up at her failures and see how the caravan attempts to comfort a murder machine
>>40684799oy, you, stop being all QTG in an actual quest.
>>40684778>It is the web-sucker! A terrible parasite that shoves it self up spider-butts to feast on their webs! How will Lyra deal with this unwanted arousing stimulation, literally draining her gains?!
>>40684772REQM manages to get by without too much trouble, honestly, and there's a good reason for it in that he makes mishaps fun.
>>40684813No, QTG is pretty much 99% the hugbox guys who complain about QMs not spoonfeeding them success all the time.
>>40684828That...doesn't sound at all pleasant.
>>40684794Hey all i said is that he sounded salty man
>>40684839QTG is the place to discuss it if you want to bitch about how all quests are infested by people you don't like. Please join me in ending this conversation so we can go back to pleasant times and jollyness.
>>40684854Where did I say having parasite stuck up your butt was fun? Other than calling it arousing.
>>40684838>and there's a good reason for it in that he makes mishaps funBecause we haven't had a really bad roll in a serious situation yet. Ever.
>>40684883Why did you reply if you wanted the conversation to end?Isn't that kinda self-contradicting?
>>40684886By the strictest definition of the word, you are correct.>>40684889> Got a 1, you look like an idiot but get a snake> Got a 1, your armor is shredded and you get hurt pretty bad, but mom and family is there to patch you up
>>40684889What about that armored bear when we hunted with mom or those lowish rolls wolf fighting?
>>40684889well there was that time one of our teammates got poisoned and we had to go on a quest arc to fix it.
>>40684913> Got a 1, your armor is shredded and you get hurt pretty bad, but mom and family is there to patch you upThat wasn't a one, and our armor got just a bit damaged, not even remotly shredded, hell lyra wasn't even meaningfully injuured by it.
>>40684914>What about that armored bearWhich didn't hurt us at all, our armour got a bit scratched.>>40684920Which we didn't know when it happened, for all we knew she just got a few bruises at the time.And tha was actually more of a mediocre roll that REQM just rolled with because he wanted finally something at least a bit threatening to happen, and even that was really tame considering we had a time limit of several weeks and there wasn't any emphasis on Sheszkas suffering.
>>40684963I'm.... okay with this?
Let's all go back to talking about how to fuck up webs right.I still think whatever we fuck up should have spider patterns.
Uhhh, I think lamb is high or something
>>40685003Anon, at this point you seem to be complaining about not much. so, uh, okay?>>40685018yeah, this is getting confusing.
>>40684963Against that armored bear when we were hunting with Mom? Yeah it did rather badly.
>>40685018No no he's not, I understand, I just got done being a squid and am almost done being a kid
>>40685018Nah, hes going to run RE:Splatoon
>>40685008I'm not sure why you wouldn't be? Its was a poor roll that we got hurt through, thats how it works?Our only catastrophic rolls (nat 1s and the like) had mostly been funny stuff, trying to balance our friends through the bedsheets, and Nin discovering our secret weakness.>>40685034>Anon, at this point you seem to be complaining about not much. so, uh, okay?I'm not sure what makes you think I'm complaining about those things? I'm saying they weren't any actually bad rolls when it mattered in this quest. So obviously taking it as example of anons not overreacting doesn't really work.
>>40685049>Against that armored bear when we were hunting with Mom? Yeah it did rather badly.No, it really didn't. Our armor damaged and the paudlron came off, it didn't even penetrate it and Lyra got up immediatly and didn't even need any rest time afterwards. It was nothing.
>>40685012> Try to begin making a weave. > Realize you did it wrong. > Pull the weave loose to try to undo the mistake.> Forget that's not how weaving works> Accidentally give self handcuffs> Too scared to think rationally, twirl around trying to stop the flow of silk> Produce silk ball over hands, trapping knife fingers inside cocoon> Realize fire doesn't work> Too embarrassed to call for aid> Loop a leg over your hands trying to pull it down> Leg is now trapped> Hobble after the caravan begging someone to cut you loose> Fall behind, despite your best efforts> Saw yourself loose on nearby tree> Find a new friend/enemy
>>40685097There were several claw marks left deep in the armor that made it need repairs.
>>40685049Not him, but the bear didn't hurt us beyond a bit of a bruise, actually.When Lann asked about injurys Lyra suffered, she didn't even count it IIRC.
>>40685120Yes, and? The armor got damaged, I literally said that? It didn't go through the armor to actually hurt Lyra.
>>40685135Lyra only got actually injured for the first time in the fight with the wolves.Considering that is some 90+ threads in is a testament to how much the dice gods love this spider.
>>40685239One of the goddesses are yuri for spiderbutts. Too bad skulls turn her off.
>>40685432I read that as: one of the goddesses of yuri are for spiderbutts.
>attempt to do two things at once>immediate failuredamn you, practical limitations.
>>40685447Hell there might a lesbian yuri goddess and a gay bara god. Who are we to understand the majesty of the gods?Rice is not a salad.
>>40685432>Too bad skulls turn her off.Don't know what make you think that, clearly the skull is very popular with the ladies.>>40685447I'm sure both can be true.
>>40685447A yuri Spider goddess who has a thing for butts?
You end up trotting behind Kenzington's wagon- The man and his wife sitting in the shade of their vehicle and leaving you to your sun-torched plight.Which isn't really much of an issue for you anyway. What it actually means is that you trail along behind them, weaving absent-mindedly, and telling them the story of how you came to acquire a were-wolf for a sister."-and then she swore eternal obedience, an oath of fealty to the queen to be! And in her magnanimous and humble-""None of that was real, yes."The couple in the cart chuckle, Kenzington propping his head up with a hand as he leans forwards."Y'sure? It sounds plausible, ya know?""At what point in any of her insane rambling did any of that seem plausible?""Dunno. The start?""No."Even his wife chimes in with a smile."I'm fairly certain parts of that were true.""What? No.""Not even the fable crown of the forest?""I do not even know where she came up with that. There is no crown. I do not have a crown."Nin plants a crown of flowers atop your head, arms spread wide as she presents you.Your audience applauds."These are flowers. Stop that, yes.""Well, it makes a certain sorta sense, doesn't it?""Mhm. A crown of flowers for the forest queen."You groan aloud as the fluffy traitor behind you giggles, her feet drumming excitedly against your spider half."Gods, don't do this to me."Sanny waves you off, the same silly smile her husband is wearing across her face."Fine, fine. Why don't you tell us your story then?"You nod, leaning your heead back and watching the clouds for a moment as you think about where to start."Well... Hmm. It was a nice day-""What kinda story starts with that? A nice day? That's not exciting, kiddo.""Shush you. It was a nice day. And I was small-""See, now we know you're lyin'."
>>40685491You glare at him."-Er. Smaller. I will not be telling you the story if you will not let me finish a sentence, yes.""Yeah, yeah.""I was smaller. And I was walking around with my sister, Sara. And she was even smaller than I was. And a mage, but that is not really important here?"You shake your head."The important thing, I think, is that we were bored, and did not know very much about anything. And so, we decided to cross the river.""Is that something big for spiders?""Sort of? It divides territories in the forest, yes. The wolves live on the other side. It is their land.""Ah."You gesture with your hands and continue."So we crossed, and started looking for something to eat. Or do. And before long, there was a chill down our backs, yes? Something, someone was following us."You lean forward as you spin your tale."Sara came closer to me, shivering, scared of what was flickering through the trees. Flashes of brown, visible between the bushes, moving so fast it could barely be seen- And then, all at once, it attacked! A wolf, throwing herself forwards, claws wide and jaws open!""And then?"Both of them have leaned forwards, matching your posture, getting closer to you as you talk."And then I punched her in the face and knocked her out. And tied her to a tree.""What.""How in th'hells are you even friends?""Hey. She was hungry and alone, yes? And wolves- the way they work, the way packs work- she thought if she could beat us, we would be her pack, and she would be safe.""Didn't quite turn out for her?""I suppose it did in the end, yes. We took her home, and she looked to us as her pack, and to me as her alpha. Convincing her that she was family was harder.""How'd that happen?"You gesture broadly, a smug smile on your face."That is another story, yes? This one is done."
>>40685514Both of them blink slowly at you before Sanny just out and laughs, eyes twinkling. "I think she got you, you old bastard.""Pretty sure that's cheatin'.""Pretty sure it's her win.""Yeah, yeah. What're you making there, anyway?""Making?"You glance to your hands, heavily wrapped in layers of web, even your fingers invisible beneath the little cocoons.Your face dyes red in an instant, but you hold strong. Even as everyone starts to laugh."Mittens.""Mittens.""Yes.""In summer.""It is fall, isn't it?"The caravan master is adamant."It won't get that cold down here, kid.""I am an adventurer, yes. I need to ready for anything!""Sure, sure."You flee away from the wagon, heading towards the front of the caravan, idling about and awaiting your own turn to guard.Nin is draped over your shoulders, her head resting next to Ezzy's snoring one, grinning widely all the while."Complete accident?""Shhh. I need to cut these off my hands, yes."The moth cackles.>Cut yourself free. Preferably before you need your hands.>You've been walking for hours. Surely you've gotten somewhere.>Distract the moth. (With what?)>Other (?)
>>40685532>Cut yourself free. Preferably before you need your hands.>Distract the moth. (With what?)>TRAINING, IDLE MOTHS TELL LIES
>>40685532>>Cut yourself free. Preferably before you need your hands.I am surprised we managed to pass that one off.
>>40685532>Cut yourself free. Preferably before you need your hands.>Distract the moth. (With what?)TRAINING! IDLE MOTHS ARE THE DEVIL'S PLAYTHINGS!
>>40685532> Test how flame resistant your flame resistant webs are and try to burn them off
>>40685532These>>40685541>>40685557Time for some revenge.
>>40685532>Cut yourself free. Preferably before you need your hands.>You've been walking for hours. Surely you've gotten somewhere.> Distract the moth with training, or at leastlanning trainingNot sure we have the time
>>40685532>Cut yourself free. Preferably before you need your hands.>Distract the moth. (With what?)>TRAINING, IDLE MOTHS TELL LIESWell shit Ive got to pick that.
>>40685532>Cut yourself free. Preferably before you need your hands.>You've been walking for hours. Surely you've gotten somewhere.>Distract the moth. (With training)>Don't realise the moth is actually distracting us from the fact we still have the 'crown' on our head
>>40685616>>Don't realise the moth is actually distracting us from the fact we still have the 'crown' on our headgoddamnit
>>40685616It was assumed we had thrown it off at the first opportunity.
>>40685650with our mittenhands?
>>40685650It wasn't mentioned, so it seems more likely Lyra just forgot about it.
>>40685616It's a girl with a flower crown, not uncommon. secretly Lyra enjoys being feminine, doesnt she?
Remove mittens! Educate moth!Writing!
>>40685738Lyra only enjoys being feminine for Nin and possibly Ezzy.
>>40685738>secretly Lyra enjoys being feminine, doesnt she?I don't think she has a problem enjoying being feminine in the open.She probably just isn't used to it.
>>40685532>Other (?)Save the "mittens." We're a spider with lava for blood, so it stands to reason that our silk is more than just fireproof. We may have just made some legendary oven mitts.
>>40685738>secretlywhat are you talking about? We try on dresses and shit.We just don't want to submit ourselves to the FULL elle treatment. Because it's scary.
>>40685738She warmed to the idea of that laced dress pretty fast after Nin told her how beautiful she looks in it.Though she isn't exactly a tomboy anyway, she likes getting her hair styled too.
>>40685754The ebbing gets split in half around our knuckles. We have now invented MMA gloves and are now pugilist-spider.
>>40685819speaking of...do we still have that corset?
>>40685896I think we would have left that at home.
>>40685896Maybe we left it home for safekeeping?Need to ask REQM.
>Don't realise the moth is actually distracting us from the fact we still have the 'crown' on our head At least she can ask Nin to hold her flowers before charging some bears.
>>40686262Okay >Plan to distract the harpy.Tell her that we will wear whatever crown she gives us.But tell her that will be the only crown we will ever wear.She will either spend a long time looking for the 'perfect' crown, or we will just 'lose' it and say we will never wear another crown that is not the one that she gave us.P.S. >40 posts + ~? hours before you fall of the board Spider, might want to think about wrapping it up now unless you want another thread.
>>40686262>hold my crownI like this way too much.
>>40686408We got more than enough time, after hitting bump limit we still have easily 2-3 hours at least.
You do your absolute best to ignore the moth as you start to wiggle your fingers, slowly slicing your way free. Which is actually harder than you thought.Getting your hands free, not ignoring the moth.Okay, ignoring the moth too."Nin.""Heee- ha. Yes?""It occurs to me, yes?""Oh?""That you have been neglecting your training."She grins again, patting your head."Is that so?"It feels nice, so you'll allow this."It is.""And what are we going to do about it?""We? You are going to run, yes."She tilts her head over your shoulder, her antennae flopping alongside her hair as she peers at you sideways."Run?""It is good for stamina, yes? If you do not get tired you could fly longer, fight longer.""Um.""So run to the front of the caravan. And then back to me."She gulps, glancing up at the slowly rolling line of wagons."And then?""And then you do it again until you can't move, yes.""But-""But nothing. When you are done, I will carry you."She looks away."Mhm."You scoot her off, and she lands lightly on her feet, hopping in place to warm up before she starts to jog, gradually doubling her pace as she goes.Maybe it was a little unfair? Her legs aren't as long as other people's, after all. But on the other hand, being able to run away is something that will likely save her life?You harden your heart, and keep watch. You might have her run till she can't, but you're not going to let her faint or collapse or something.
>>40686522On the mitten front, you've freed your thumbs, and are now using the alternate thumb to slice into the other mitten. This is really all sorts of ridiculous. You wouldn't even be able to eat like this._______________________________________________________________It takes you the better part of a hour to scratch you way free- with a minor break to catch the faltering moth, holding her up and letting her drink until she's refreshed. And the tucking her in behind you. Maybe you spoiled her a bit, but she did a good job.You head back up the light slope, falling into line with other adventurers, taking your shift to guard the caravan. Triss greets you as you sign in."Nice crown, your majesty. What happened to the mittens?"Your blush reaches your neck as you pluck the flower circlet from your head, dropping it onto Nin's, raucous laughter all around. The river is so close! You could dive in, float away. Pick a new name, pretend none of this ever happened. Or maybe just hit everyone till they forgot? Anything is possible!You take your spear, your embarrassment and your friends with you as you move, watching over the slow rolling caravan.You'll have your revenge. They'll be sorry they ever mocked you!
>>40686533It is time for vengeance.We will cover the town/caravan in webs.
>>40686533And on that lighthearted note, I'll call it for tonight!Next thread will be possibly monday, but definitely next week. As per usual, feel free to throw questions, comments and concerns out here, and I'll do my best to answer them!
>>40686600Not a horrible idea. Fireproof webbing/netting to drape the wagons in.
>>40686608Thanks for running REQM and how much are you dreading the arguments over our next Evo?
>>40686608Whatever happened to our old corset, anyway? Folded up with the dress?>>40686623As long as we claim it is our "horrible vengeance", it's fine.
>>40686623>WHY IS EVERYONE COVERED IN WEBS!It will stop people from catching on fire, yes.>WE SAID WE WERE SORRY FOR LAUGHING AT YOU!I have no idea what you're talking about, yes.Soup is not a drink.
>>40686623When will we get to kill the next monster larger than us? I feel disappointed.
>>40686608Does one of the evolutions come with a horn- or boneplatecrown?
>>40686705I hope not.Then we couldn't wear our sunhat.I think we've dodged the hornbullet entirely. Which is great.
>>40686667>That spoilerYou are a fucking liar.
>>40686698If we want huge monsters, we'll need to head back towards the wendigo's region of the forest, rather than to the relatively civilized nation that is Ellsvier.
>>40686629Thanks for playing!I expect knife fights in thread once physical details start to become available.>>40686636Yes. It's very carefully folded in your luggage on the adventurer wagon.>>40686698The environment can only support so many!>>40686705Teeeechnically no?>>40686667And salads aren't cakes, but it's an uphill battle with google.
>>40686725Grave Lord would still give us horns most likely, all Lord evolutions seem to.>>40686740That gryphon already packed quite the punch.
>>40686731A drink is drunk, and a drink is made a drink when it is poured into a receptacle that it is then drunk out of.DO YOU DRINK SOUP OUT OF A FUCKING TANKARD?!
>>40686742So, when is that brick joke of a corset going to rear its ugly head?
>>40686742>I expect knife fights in thread once physical details start to become available.Any chance of getting sketches like last time? Or any sort of spoiler in that regard so we can start knive fighting before hte actual evolution thread?
>>40686742But I want another hydra level encounter, something that dwarf us. Where's my monster hunter feeling REQM!
>>40686763Now I have to put soup in a tankard.
>>40686765When Shezka is convinced by the mischievous harpy that it is armor.>Commence the dirty looks from the night patrol as they now think we dress up our friends in lewd clothing.
>>40686789Mischievous harpy?Nin's the mischievous one. She's a moth.
>>40686533>"Nice crown, your majesty. What happened to the mittens?">Your blush reaches your neck as you pluck the flower circlet from your head, dropping it onto Nin's, raucous laughter all around.
>>40686822Nin, Jin, Harpy, Moth, they both sound the same and the both fly. As far as I can remember they're the same as each other! Jesus. H. Christ, Have I really forgotten who's who? It's only been a couple of days.
>>40686742Thanks for running. When are you going to get around to updating our level in the bins?
>>40686765Once you hit the elflands, and need to be presented in fancy clothes.>>40686767I'm a little iffy on that. I'd like people to vote for whichever they feel like is the best fit, or the one they most like once they've got Lyra's dream impressions of them, and drawing them out now will really polarize people's opinions on them- not because any will be awful or anything like that, but because people will get really attached to specific physical changes?>>40686847>Oh no, this isn't embarrassing at all thank you>>40686926Shortly. Tonight or tomorrow. I wound up focusing my efforts on the ebook stuff this afternoon.
>>40686967>not because any will be awful or anything like that, but because people will get really attached to specific physical changes?Considering thats what we had last time, thats a fair assumptiom, and this time we have more indicative names, so its not like we 'need' sketches.They are nice though.
>>40686967>people will get really attached to specific physical changes?I'm pretty sure the general feeling is that we need more skulls.
>>40687017I'm okay with our current number of skulls.Though maybe more eyesockets, and some horns on the skull for Jin to perch on.>pimp my buttskull
>>40686967>fancy clothes in elflandsohboy ohboy ohboy
>>40687049Currently the skull is sort of attached to the butt.I want our butt to become the skull. And bigger.
>>40687093nah, I don't want that.>>40687049though I do like the idea of the skull getting MORE SPOOK as power increases.
>>40687172Skullbutt gets so skull that it starts floating above the butt.
>>40687049Go go Minivan Arachne evolution!
Honestly, I wouldn't mind Lyra herself just becoming more skeletal, with veins of glowing heat rising from the cracks. The clash between sweet personality and fuckoff appearance would be fun.
>>40687230Our skull gets so large that it is classified as a large tent.Lann then moves in permanently.
>>40687242I can't really imagine any evolution of hers that would do that.
>>40687242I dont think we've done enough "evil" things to have earned that look.
>>40687314Eh, look has nothing to do with good or evil.We got a giant skull on our ass right now.
>>40687242>we become so terrifying our friends have to go ahead of us to warn people that we're not bad>nin gets to go forward exactly once and loses her mobility privileges outside of battle>the rest of the time she's tied to our skull
>>40687314Lyra has a huge skull on her butt and sometimes literally burns. It's not the sort of thing you expect on a family friendly spider, but there we go.
>>40687314Lots of stuff can lead to a monstrous/terrifying look.Giant monster slaying, for example.
>>40687343Cannibalism makes you a ghoul. I would think doing less than friendly things could affect ones appearance negatively. Wasnt the skull butt more from fighting big things?
>>40687374I dont really think of a giant skull on our butt as terrifying? It seems more symbolic of hunting to me? also its on her butt.
>>40687386>Cannibalism makes you a ghoul.No, constant habitual cannibalism does that.Lyra did cannibalism and didn't become one.Also, just because doing something like that leads to a certain look, doesn't mean its the only way to start looking terrifying. Lyra looks plenty scary right now without that.
>>40687422I thought the constant part was implied? my bad on that one?
>>40687408>I dont really think of a giant skull on our butt as terrifying?Evidently people in-universe find it extremly scary.And Giant hunting monster spiders are very very scary.
>>40687408>a giant spider with a massive skull on her backside that glows with inner fire isn't scaryAnon. I know you're on /tg/ and can' say you're just wrong. But pls. Its kinda ridiculous.
>>40687484A giant spider centaur, instead of the creepy spider face there's a mostly human torso arms and head, it helps significantly. mostly
>>40687519>instead of the creepy spider faceExcept for the six pitch black orbs where eyes would be in a human, and the fangs.
>>40686967That email wasn't terribly important. Take your time and don't worry about it.
>>40687537That would be the reason for mostly human part. there are differences yes but they arent the things i find disturbing about spiders. its the whole head (the mouth area in particular) that I find creepy. The eyes, not so much
>>40687422I've no comment on the appearance discussion, but Lyra ate an arachne? When did that happen?
>>40687596Ate lizard people Cannibalism was referring to sentients instead of true cannibalism.
>>40687596never. he's talking about that time we ate a horrible lizard man thing.Then we thought better of it.
>>40687596Technically, the Lizard-folk early on were sapient. Assholes, but still.
>>40687596>but Lyra ate an arachne?Cannibalism in regard to becoming a ghoul refers to eating "sapients" rather than literally your own kind.And she ate several lizardfolk because they don't count as people to the arachne.
>>40687634The at least two times, actually.We pretty much only "thought better of it" off-screen in the ask.fm after newfags threw a hissy fit about it dozens of threads after it stopped being relevant.
>>40687623>>40687634>>40687641>>40687652Ah, gotcha. Thanks.
>>40687666anon, I've been here from the start and I remember being against that.Stop throwing hissy fits about not getting your way.
>>40687592>but they arent the things i find disturbing about spidersA giant spider with a monster skull on her back is still scary if you meet one, doesn' matter what you in particular find creepy.I can just as easily say skeletons don't creep me out either, that doesn't mean Lyra won't look scary as hell if she would start looking like one.
>>40687709>and I remember being against thatIf you were you didn't say it. Literally no one complaint against it back then, don't make shit up, it doesn't make you look good. Especially since people can just go into the archive to see that the only complaint anyone had was worry we accidently intruded on their territory, not if we should eat them.
>>40687709>Stop throwing hissy fits about not getting your way.What my way? The fuck are you talking about?The only thing that bothered me about it was that it wasn't used as a IC opportunity for Lyra to react to that. Which has nothing to do with the topic though.
>>40687733I did say it, when the topic came up again. Like I said, we thought better of it.God forbid someone think of something more critically after a while.
>>40687768>I'm totally not a newfag who was buttflustered my kawaii monstergirl waifu behaved monsterlikeSure thing.
>>40687787No, what makes you think that?
>>40687768You changed your mind about if cannibalism is okay?Really?
>>40687793Anon, is it so hard for you to believe someone might change their mind that you instead immediately assume lies and deceit?
>>40687820Considering you apparently changed your mind on if cannibalism is a okay thing to do, yeah, thats kinda implausible.
>>40687813I was presented with the idea that it was pretty messed up to eat lizard guys, and in that light, I agreed.
>>40687834>I was presented with the idea that it was pretty messed up to eat lizard guysIt just really wasn't.Beyond them not tasting very good.
>>40687851It's pretty messed up, dude.I mean, people are outright calling it cannibalism up here.>>40687830>>40687813If you don't think cannibalism is pretty messed up, then that's pretty messed up.
>>40687852That sounds like bullshit to me, its not like it was a complex topic requiring much consideration.
>>40687834Eh, the only problem with it was that REQM handwaved it away instead of having the character actually think about it, because it is a interesting clash with her monster nature/human memory that should have been done IC.
>>40687882It's kind of bullshit how you're refusing to believe that something can be shown in a different light.
Do we have some new guy trying to start petty fights over nothing?That's like twice this thread people are starting bullshit over long dead arguments, or ones that are long dead and in different quests entirely.
>>40687866>If you don't think cannibalism is pretty messed up, then that's pretty messed up.I'm not a giant spider anon. And neither were the lizards, so calling it cannibalism is kinda dubious since we don't really have a precedent for it in our own value system.>>40687903Except it wasn't shown in a different light?Its not like any new information came up that changed the perspective on the matter.
>>40687917>people starting arguments over petty shit>someone newThe new guy would be you then.This happens all the damn time here.
>>40687917Since when is that new?
>>40687921>Except it wasn't shown in a different light?People started mentioning it was messed up. Duh.It's weird how much of a fit you're throwing about this.
>>40687917Considering we have that sort of thing constantly, what?Especially since the upper thing is a constant quest argument since the dawn of questing.>>40687953I'm not really seeing anyone throwing a fit?
>>40687947>>40687949usually it's at least about evolutions or prettiest dress competitions.Not QTG-tier bitching.
>>40687953Anon, people pointing out when you're saying bullshit, are not throwing a fit.
>>40687967Well, I don't know what you call it when you insist everyone who disagrees with you is a newfag and then claim anyone who has a problem with this is a liar.Seems like a fit to me.
>>40687971>he wasn't here for the second hydraulic muscle autismYou are blessed.
>>40687971>>40687981Why is it people are always saltiest about the arguments they lose?Let it go, man.
>>40687989>when you insist everyone who disagrees with you is a newfagI'm not, I said the specific people who threw a fit about the cannibalism thing were, because if they had a problem with it, they would have said as much way back when it actually happened and was relevant, instead of bitching about it dozens of threads later.And when someone claimed he "as there and complained" I pointed out thats bullshit, and showed why it is.
>>40687993But that one was fun, anon. Even if it got a bit bad.I was the guy who was the major proponent of hydraulic muscles first time around
Pastes are being updated
>>40688012Why would someone be salty about a argument they win?>>40688033No, it really wasn't.The first one was okay, because evryone understood it was largely nonsense.The second time was just emberassing to watch when people started pretending they knew shit about biology.
>>40688023But anon, I was there the whole time.And when people started complaining about it, I also complained, because they had good points.It's not some grand convoluted story. It's a simple OOC rethinking.
>>40688054>No, it really wasn't.It was. At times.
>>40688077>It was. At times.I guess I can agree with that much, short times.Far more relevantJin: >Level 94: Had to explain to Lyra the difference between day and night.Sheszka>Level 97: Giant rabbit tastes delicious.GET HYPE
>>40688094Oh god mom
>>40688105>Left the forest with Erics.Interesting she left so fast.I-is she coming for us?Is she sensing that we get rusty in our morning routines?
REQM, don't forget to add Lanns elf fangs to her charsheet.
>Level 40: Cried for 3 days after her babies left the nest.>Level 41: Stopped crying. Tracked down and hugged every one in the area.>Level 42: Left the forest with Erics.>Level 43: Cried a little bit more.Poor mom ;_;
>>40688119no, of course not.She is going to find some goddamn dungeons.and then make more kids when they run out of dust and are too far to reach moths
>>40688041Thanks for the info.Now I want to brutally drill Nin as much as possible so the entire group can evolve in one night...
>>40688157c-can we call mom somehow?Did we ever make that magic radio?
>Level 27 Spider Comforter: Expert at not being hugged to death, and reassuring distraught wives.Awwww
I love our new skill, shame we will never level it.
I feel like our spear skill hasn't risen in a very long time either.
>>40688191We thought we could send her letters over the guild, but if she already left the forest, no idea how to get them to her.
>Level 9: Special Class: Ranger: A hunter who fights side by side with monsters, and can mimic the powers of their partners. The fangs are still there. Am I stuck with these? Oh gods, what if I grow a tail->Currently torn between fleeing into the woods or tracking down Lyra.Poor lucky Lann.
>>40688269shiiitMaybe someone will be able to deliver them.
>Level 68: Currently plotting to overthrow the entirety of the fashion industry and replace it with a fashion dictatorship.>[Ragyo intensifies]Elle as final boss confirmed?
Level 31: The forest is a little lonely.Level 39: But we still have each other.
>>40688340Elle is our wealthy relative.
>>40688501Mom is already pretty wealthy.And so are our elf relatives.Lyras family is really loaded come to think of it, we better watch out for people wanting to marry her for her dowry.
We're getting too close. Everyones getting too close. All I can think about is the whole caravan crapping its pants as all of us evolve all at once.
>>40688595We have adecent chances for Lyra, Ezzy, Jin, Sheszka to evolve in the same night.Nin is probably too far away, unless she slays a dragon or two for her queen by then.
>>40688340So, does she have dies of all the colors of the rainbow yet?How much of the town will be dedicated to FASHION when we get back?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWZs5POCp0I
Thanks for stikk making the updates REQM, really made my night.
>>40688684>How much of the town will be dedicated to FASHION when we get back?Everything.When we come back, the entire twon has been turned into a single huge fashion show and tailor.Arachne recruited from the forest produce massive quantities of silk and turn them into extravagant designs.Hunters in the newest fashions empty the forest of animals to feed their fashionista masters.And above all will Elle sit on her throne of lace.Nin was right, there will be a forest queen.The Silk Queen Elle! All shall love her and despair!
>>40688684>>40688765I can't wait for Lyra to arrive in some larger city and find people buying and wearing Elles designs.
>>40688785By the time we reach the elflands and have to wear the dress, elves are fawning over it>Oh my gods, is this an elle original?
>>40688785Her corset will be a hand made Elle original worth millions
>>40688801>>40688803FUCK YOU ANONS! I WAS THINKING OF THAT JOKE
>>40688595>>40688620Cue the caravan thinking we are imposters who have have kidnapped Lyra's crew and are making a poor attempt at masquerading as them.>They realize that if Lyra's crew was defeated so handily by us, then it's probably safer not to call us out on the terrible attempt at deception. Nervous twitches and overstated assurances of our identify abound for the rest of the trip.
>>40688521>Lyras family is really loaded come to think of it, we better watch out for people wanting to marry her for her dowry.Well she's lucky in that nobody really KNOWS about that fat dosh. Further hidden by how Lyra just doesn't give a damn about cash and prefers to provide for herself rather than engage in service industry.
>>40688349our poor brothers.We never could get too close to them.
>>40686773we could fight a bunch of adventurers wielding weapons made from mythical creatures. Think of it as monster hunter from the monster's perspective
