I am Sief Atanor of House Atanor, heir to the Golem Raziel. Seeking answers for the actions of the dead giant Bonesnapper, I have journeyed to the Iquani Expanse to hunt down the giant's family. After a long journey I am finally at the abandoned imperial fort being used by Bonesnapper's foul mother and siblings as their base of operations.With the aid of the Iquani princess Qualaji and her behemoth Kajilapa, we infiltrated the fort via old tunnels into the mesa by way of the haunted battleground at its base. With the unwilling aid of a basilisk we have managed to bring down three members of Mama Stump's clan, with another likely to follow from the basilisk venom coursing through his veins before much longer.Better yet, so far the rest of the clan is none the wiser, and if Runt falls, we only have the giants Tooth and Skinner to deal with, and the inbred clan's matriarch herself. From her though, I need answers, answers about why she sent Bonesnapper to slay my mother, and now answers as to who this 'Man of the Gloam' who requested it was.“Sief? What now? Should we hide the bodies, or get moving?”Quala peers into the gloom around the cavernous and now quite gory chamber. Provided Runt survives the trip back to his kin to report, they might come looking. As of yet Runt doesn't know that anyone save Horsebiter is dead, or that the basilisk attack was anything more than an unfortunate coincidence. We could shift the other two into some side tunnel and maintain the charade a while longer, that is, provided we don't attract more attention before the work is done. Even with Raziel and Kajilapa's strength, hauling these bloated titans will not be quick work. A smart observer would most likely notice how much blood there was to have come from a single giant's struggle with a basilisk as well, but giants have never been accused of being smart or observant.>Leave them, get moving>Hide the evidence
>>40797313>Hide the evidenceBetter to ambush them here than where they might have a surprise waiting for us. Also Between the basilisk and the one it killed the blood might not be too out of place at a glance? Who knows. Even if they catch on I'd rather fight them somewhere like here.
>>40797313>Hide the evidence
>>40797313Baby I missed you!
>>40797313>Hide them, but only out of sight, so as to not take too much time.If Run managed to notify the others, some of them will come investigating. This means they will be separated, which is good for us.The ones coming to investigate likely expect a fight, but the ones who stay behind probably don't.Now we can either take the certain encounter here, or we can try to ambush the one(s) who stayed behind and risk the ones sent to investigate getting back, missing our chance, or surrounding us.Our two options are to stay here or move out stealthily, former is safer with higher difficulty of not all giants come to investigate, letter is less safe/certain with less difficulty if we succeed/are fast enough, and if some of the come to investigate at all.
>>40797313>Hide the evidencePrepare to ambush, is there any flammable materials around?
>>40797313>>Hide the evidence
Writing.>>40797406Oh anon you know I can't quit you.>>40797525Afraid not, you're in a large cavern carved into a chamber and supported with massive stone pillars. It was probably once a depot, however everything seems to have been demolished or removed to turn it into a lair for a giant, probably the giant that got killed by the basilisk.
Also, just as a reminder to y'all, since I likely won't be here when it becomes relevant.Salvage this place, it likely has some useful equipment since this used to belong to the empire.Skin some giant(s), so we have a container for the Basilisk corpse. If we can't take the full corpse, then take the head. If we can't take the full head, then take the important bits that can be useful, like fangs, eyes, claws, some scales/bones, whatever, venom sack.Interrogate Mama Stump.Don't fuck Kajilapa, only love her tenderly.Salvage the battlefield on the way back, there were those Bracers for instance which were heavy, hence why we didn't take them here. Don't take that spooky warpick though, that shit is obviously haunted. Do we know of any way to get an object unhaunted, Lordy? Could Virgil do it? Could a Iquani shaman or something that is likely in the settlement we met Quala in do it? Could the chiefson brat do it maybe?Lordy, is lugging what I listed here(basilisk part, bracers, the weapons the giants had on them, any other weapons/armor useable, maybe a cannon) be carried by Sief alone? If not, how about by Sief and Kajilapa?Good que
So I caught up on this quest and I have a question.In the first thread, you state Sief as 18, but more recent threads state him as 17, which is accurate?
“Let's drag them out of sight, if that giant from before comes back with someone else, we might be able to ambush them again,” I reply, Quala giving me a nod and calling out some command to Kajilapa.“The unused tunnel back there, we can use that,” the princess calls as Kajilapa grabs hold of the ankle of the dead giant Mauler, huffing and straining as she drags his hulking carcass. I bring Raziel over, taking the other ankle and aiding the behemoth with her task.It is slow, unpleasant work, the giant's corpse seems determined to catch on every pillar, corner or bump on the way, and it's starting to leak some unpleasant fluids to boot. Kajilapa gives an unhappy moan, huffing deeply from her snout as if to cleanse her nostrils of the foul stink. Hopefully it should mingle well enough with the already rancid odor of giantish living.We drag the corpse back down the tunnel, and over to the side tunnel, dusty and unused. The ground is more uneven here, so it proves even more of a challenge, but we manage to wedge the corpse far enough down to be out of sight.Sighing, we step back over Mauler's carcass to go gather the other giant and repeat the process. The second trip is no less arduous, while the partially bisected giantess is less bulky than Mauler, the fact that she's almost split in two makes moving her a messy and difficult proposition, especially without leaving a trail so obvious even giants could follow it.“I think we'll leave this bit out, when we tell tales of our glorious adventure later,” Quala calls, sleeve covering her nose as she sits atop Kajilapa.“Agreed,” I sigh, tugging the carcass through a narrower part of the tunnel, leaving a foul puddle behind it.(cont)
>>40797914We shove the hirsute giantess down into the gloom alongside her sibling, and return to the tunnel. Just in the nick of time it seems, as I can hear the echoes of faraway voices growing closer by the second. I gesture for Quala to hide herself in the gloom of the tunnel, slipping back into the chamber to lurk behind a pillar. Okay, so this didn't work all that well last time, but I'll put that down to bad luck rather than bad planning.I wait, glancing down at Raziel's hands. The fingers are stained in blood and bile, and I don't envy Virgil having to clean them out when I return home. It's a short while before two figures arrive, the familiar, simpering form of Runt, looking more pallid and unhealthy than ever, the blackness of his poisoned arm having spread all the way up past the shoulder now. With him is another giant, less hulking than Mauler but still larger than average for a giant. Lanky, greasy, his long face twisted into a perpetual sneer of yellowed teeth, and his arms covered in patchwork of scars from elbows to fingertips. A large, vicious blade hangs from a makeshift belt, most likely once a golem weapon.“I told ya, Skinner, Horsebiter bit it, jus' like I said,” Runt whimpers, looking up at his sibling, who spits off to one side.“Yeah, he's dead alright. Did the basilisk bite 'im, or did he just croak from lookin' at it?”“It stared at 'im and he started goin' all frothy and screamy, then he dropped down dead,” Runt explains, scratching at the peeling skin of his rotting arm.“Then haul 'im back up, waste of good meat.”“Eh, b-but he's so heavy, and my arm hurts, can't we just eat him here?”“You want to tell Mauler and Mama they ain't getting' their share? You're as stupid as ya look, Runt,” Skinner sneers.“No, I don't want Mama to be mad, I'll do it,” Runt whimpers, grabbing hold of the carcass and dragging it back towards the far exit.Looks like it's now or never.>Ambush them (How? write in)>Not here, let them go.
>>4079785517>>40797570>Do we know of any way to get an object unhaunted, Lordy? Could Virgil do it? Could a Iquani shaman or something that is likely in the settlement we met Quala in do it? Could the chiefson brat do it maybe?Some sort of holy man could possibly do it, if the item is indeed haunted in some way. Sief doesn't really know the details though, since such spiritual matters aren't really his purview.>Lordy, is lugging what I listed here(basilisk part, bracers, the weapons the giants had on them, any other weapons/armor useable, maybe a cannon) be carried by Sief alone? If not, how about by Sief and Kajilapa?Raziel might have trouble lugging a whole lot of stuff, Golems weren't really designed to be pack animals after all. With Kajilapa's help he might be able to though.
>>40797924jump out and stab the big one?!
>>40797924>Ambush them (How? write in)Shield rush Skinner into the wall, knocking Runt down as we go. Keep aggro by hurling insults and threats so Quala and Kajilapa flank.Depending on how long the rush-down takes, Runt's death will vary in its grandeur.
>>40797924>>Ambush them (How? write in)Wait until they have the carcass hefted, and are looking away. Rush them.
>>40798027This sounds like a sensible idea. We want them to be as disadvantaged as possible.

I bide my time, waiting for the perfect opportunity, watching as Runt complains with every step, dragging the carcass back towards the far tunnel. Several minutes pass and he's still not out, barely moving the larger corpse a few inches with every tug.I can see Skinner getting more and more frustrated, tapping his foot, drumming fingers on the hilt of his blade. At last he snaps, shoving Runt aside with a roar.“You fucking weakling, I'll do it myself,” he snarls, squatting down to heft the carcass, slinging it onto his back. I can see him straining under the weight as he turns to carry it to the tunnel.There won't be a better opportunity than this. I rush out from behind the pillar, Raziel clearing the chamber in a few powerful strides. Runt shrieks as he spots me charging for Skinner, but the larger giant is too slow to turn in time to fully avoid the blow, and the sword bites deep into his side, the runes flaring as it burns away at the giant's flesh.Skinner gives an agonized howl, slipping under the force of the blow and the weight of his dead sibling, crashing to the ground beneath the colossal carcass.“Fuck, get this thing off me Runt,” he roars, as he struggles in vain to push Horsebiter's corpse from atop him before I can strike a killing blow.Runt looks from Skinner to me, indecisive, then Kajilapa erupts from the darkness with a roar. That's more than enough to tip the smaller giant over the edge, and with a fearful shriek he turns, running for the far tunnel. I could finish off Skinner now, before he has a chance to get loose, or I could chase after Runt. Whichever I choose, Quala can handle the other giant. That is of course provided I don't want to take more captives for questioning, though my stomach turns at the thought of another torture session.>Chase after and kill Runt>Chase after and incapacitate Runt>Finish off Skinner>Disable Skinner

>>40798379Was just about to suggest that. Shoot the runner and finish skinner. If we miss than Quala can catch him, I'm sure he's slow enough anyways what with the pain in his arm and his failing health.
How much ammo do we have for the gun again?
>>40798421IIRC, basilisk venom is outstandingly potent, I'd rather minimize the risk of Kajilapa getting a mouthful of tainted blood.
>>40798460True, but Kajilapa would have to bite either the afflicted atm or shoulder, but she has powerful arms too remember. And I also doubt that Kajilapa or the princess are dumb enough to go for biting the poisoned areas, they aren't new fighters. If it's still a concern anyways then we can charge Runt and have her finish Skinner, I'm cool with that.

>>40798674Us* on my phone and auto-correct a shit.
Poor lil' Runt... Why do you give me these feels again, Lordy?
Sorry this post is taking so long, something came up, almost finished now.>>40798859If it makes you feel any better, Runt has killed just as many innocent people as any other member of the clan.Being the most pitiful of a family of giants does not mean that he can't inflict horrific suffering upon those smaller than himself, and indeed he enjoyed doing so since he spent so much time being pushed around for being the smallest by his family.
“Finish off Skinner,” I shout to Quala, as I vault over the fallen giant to chase down Runt before he can warn what remains of his clan.It doesn't prove to be much of a chase. Runt is smaller than Raziel, and barely standing from the basilisk venom, he's barely made it a little way down the tunnel before he stumbles, and I drive the blade of Raziel's sword between his ribs and out of his chest. Runt gives a pitiful whimper as he slumps down, his weight dragging him down off of the blade and into a heap on the tunnel floor.Flicking some excess gore from the blade, I return to the chamber, to find Skinner dead, his throat ripped out. Quala gives Kajilapa a pat on the neck, the behemoth's snout stained red, sniffing the air as she lumbers away from the giant's carcass.“You got him?”“Yes, which means that unless Mauler missed any family members, it should just be the giant he called Tooth, and Mama Stump herself.”“The Wyvern too, wherever they're keeping it. Don't let your guard down yet Sief, some of these giants were tough, but Mama Stump is a whole lot worse,” Quala replies, frowning.“Do you know anything about this Tooth?”“I don't know them by name, but all the ones I've heard about from reports of raids on my people are ones we've killed. Either Tooth never left anyone alive to give a description, or he doesn't get out much.”(cont)
>>40798941The first of those options is not an inspiring one, but we must press on regardless. Gesturing for Quala to follow, I head off down the tunnel on the far end of the chamber, stretching off into the darkness ahead. It's a long walk, even for a golem, the fort must have been carved throughout the entire mesa, but thankfully it's easy enough to tell which way to go from signs of the giants having passed through.At least until we reach a T-junction, both paths looking well-traveled and lacking in dust. A large bronze plaque sits on the opposite wall, still just barely legible with imperial script. It looks like the left tunnel leads to what was once the armory, while the right leads to some sort of archives, most likely for storing maps, supply logs and such. Either one could lead to Mama Stump or Tooth, there really isn't any way of knowing.>Armory>Archives
I spend some time pondering my options, Kajilapa's sniffing the only sound in the still tunnels.“Any idea which way they came from?”“Kajilapa's smelling them from both ways, they must pass through here a lot,” Quala replies, her behemoth lowing in response.“Armory then, if we're lucky, we might find something to help stack the odds more in our favor.”We set off down the tunnel, and before long it opens up into a wider walkway with raised platforms along the sides, smaller doors in and out of it, most likely leading to the areas which the fort's golems weren't required to go to. In places, the walkway opens up further to allow for higher, fortified platforms, long rusted artillery pieces sat atop them, most looking like they've been stripped for parts by some scavenger or other in the long years since the fort fell.From the walkway, we step out into a massive chamber, the far end beyond the sight of Raziel's night vision to penetrate. Rows of alcoves flank us on both sides, devoid of the Golems that must have once stood there, save for a few rusting and damaged pieces that look like they were awaiting repairs. Smaller doors off to the side most likely lead to the chambers of the artificers, and every now and again the alcoves cease to allow for a massive reinforced doorway, most hanging open.I spot more signs, Repair Hangers one through twenty, storage for weapons, function components and parts. Most look like they've seen some activity at some point, although not recently. Glancing at the row of hanger doorways, I spot one obvious thing that stands out however, Repair Hanger twelve, it looks like someone, either the giants or some long-dead imperial knight, has blockaded the gate, massive piles of heavy scrap heaped up against it.>Ignore all of this, keep following the most traveled path>Check out some of the Repair Hangers>Check out Weapons>Check out Function Components>Check out Parts>Take down the barricade and investigate Hanger twelve.

Okay, got to step out for a bit, but when I return it looks like you'll be checking out Hanger twelve.
Remind me why didn't we check out weapons before potentially fighting the wyvern?
>>40799484Because looting is always secondary, silly!
>>40799563But wouldn't it make sense to check to see if the weapons have anything useful for our situation?

“Sief, even through that metal shell I can tell what you're thinking. Are you sure about this?” Quala calls, having noticed my loitering in front of the barricaded chamber.“This could be where they're keeping the wyvern. If we fight it now, we can take it out while it's alone,” I reply, starting to shift some of the scrap.“If it is the wyvern. Whatever it is, they obviously went to a lot of trouble keeping it shut up in there.”“Only one way to find out.”“If this ends badly, don't say I didn't warn you,” Quala sighs, folding her arms as she watches me work, Kajilapa not being well suited to aiding in this task.It's long, tedious, repetitive work, but eventually I have the scrap set aside. If it is a wyvern in there, it's a very quiet or well trained one, because I didn't hear a sound the whole time I was working. Raziel takes hold of the gate's handle in one hand, sword gripped hard in the other, pulling it open, the gate creaking and groaning under the strain.No wyvern launches itself at me, nothing stirs at all as the gate swings open, showering Raziel with a cloud of dust.“What is it?” Quala asks, Kajilapa tentatively plodding round to peer through the doorway alongside me.(cont)
>>40800340It's no wyvern pen. I have stepped into a charnel house. Survivors must have sealed themselves up in here when the fort fell, hoping for a rescue which never came. Skeletal remains, many still wearing the tattered scraps of imperial uniforms lie scattered about the place, victims of hunger, thirst, and madness. The base of the gate is scored with countless scratches, and I shudder as I can almost hear the desperate pleas for salvation echoing down the dusty halls.“Sief... we should not be in here,” Quala whispers, as I look past the bones to the golem shell slumped against the far wall, its faceplate cracked and dented, its cockpit ripped open and stained with dried blood.I shiver, a chill creeping into Raziel, carried on the mana currents. Mist coils before my lips with every breath, the viewing screen frays at the edges with a spiderweb of corruption, flickering images and whispered words. The hollow eyes of the broken golem bore into me, patient and malevolent, drawing me in deeper and deeper.>Roll 1d100

I hear a ringing in my ears, a persistent noise on the edge of my hearing. The view screen shows nothing but the hollow pits of the golem's mangled face, the hatred boiling over, threatening to drag me down into the darkness.My body feels numb, my arms heavy, I should move, I do not belong here, with the dead. My mind screams commands to a body that won't listen, sluggish and stubborn. I just need to step forward, just a few more steps and there will be peace, no more questions, no more mourning, I could bring an end to this whole sad charade that I am a knight, that I am anything but a scared child.The ringing won't stop, won't let me step forward, won't let me rest. I can't, not yet, no matter how easy it might be. Blood hammers in my skull, my arms burn down to my fingertips with the strain as I reach for the controls, and then Raziel's hand is on the gate, and the eyes are gone, sealed away in its tomb of iron and stone once more.Air floods back to my lungs as Raziel crashes to his knees before the gate, the ringing growing more coherent, a voice I recognize. Quala's voice, high with emotion.“Sief? Sief, are you alright?”I try to bring out the words, but my throat still feels tight. I breathe deep, calming my nerves. This fort is still heavy with grudges and regrets, after all these years, and even now I can still feel the weight of that malevolence hanging over me.“I... I'm okay, we should barricade the gate back up,” I reply, dragging scrap metal and stone and anything else I can find. If I were a holy man, perhaps I would have some words to say, some prayer to the spirits to lay the ghosts within to rest, to grant them peace. I'm not, and it shames me that I can do is entomb them once more in the darkness.“This is a very bad place Sief, we shouldn't stay here any longer than we have to.”>Check out Weapons>Check out Function Components>Check out Parts>Keep following the path, leave this place

“Okay, we won't stay long, I just want to check out the store rooms for anything we can use, then we'll go,” I reply.Kajilapa gives an unhappy moan, and Quala looks more than a little frustrated by my choice, frowning as she gives Kajilapa a reassuring pat on the neck.“Fine, if looting this cursed place is so important to you. Just be quick.”I move between the rooms, glancing in for anything of value, though my nerves fray more and more with every chamber I step into, expecting to come face to face with more of the restless souls bound to this place. Fortunately, all that greets me is dust and panicked vermin scurrying for dark corners at the tremor of Raziel's footfalls.The Parts storage is mostly useless, replacement arms, legs, joints, shell pieces, all for designs now long obsolete. Some of them would probably be quite valuable to a collector, but they would be heavy and difficult to carry.Functions contains numerous small mana crystals, carved stone cubes and other stranger devices. Many look to be dead, the power gone, or the clumsy hands of giants having cracked, scratched and shattered them. I spot a couple of items that still look to be in working order, though I have very little clue on what they do, and I would need to get them installed before they would be of any use. One is a rectangular block of greenish stone, scratched with an intricate pattern of geometric shapes which shine with stored energy. The other is a glittering prism of polished crystal, reflecting even the dull light of the torches into brilliance.(cont)
>>40801534The weapons storage looks to have been looted quiet thoroughly already by Mama Stump's family, and being giants, they seem to have gone out of their way to smash a lot of the things they didn't want to use. Fortunately, while giants may be destructive, they are also careless and lazy, and there are still items tucked away in corners of the chamber that they failed to steal or ruin. I find a crate holding several more rounds for the hand cannon, and I store those away for later, bringing me up to a total or twelve shots. Aside from that, I find some sort of golem-sized war scythe, still sharp and glinting despite its years in the dust and grime of the armory, which means that there is probably some form of runic enhancement involved. I also spot some sort of long steel pole, carved with arcane markings. One end of the pole is wrapped in thick strips of something resembling leather and held in place with pins. I couldn't really say what it does, however, unless I were to investigate further and remove the leather strips of course.I could probably carry around two more things without completely overburdening Raziel, maybe more if I could convince Qualaji to let me store them on Kajilapa.>Valuable-looking part>Green Rectangular Component>Crystal Prism Component>War Scythe>Steel pole>Ask Quala to let you carry extra items on Kajilapa>Don't ask>Investigate the pole further>Don't investigate the steel pole

>>40801550>Valuable-looking part>Ask Quala to let you carry extra items on Kajilapa>Don't investigate the steel poleWe can always double back when the giants are dead. In the meantime, delicious brown is getting restless

>>40801550>Don't ask>Investigate the pole furtherIf the pole is a useful weapon take it, leave everything else. We can come back later after we have killed the last giants. There is no point taking the scythe as our sword has the anti-giant enchantment.
>>40801550>Valuable-looking part>War Scythe>Steel pole>Ask Quala to let you carry extra items on Kajilapa
>>40801550Can behemoths wield weapons? I'm guessing no, but it could briefly help Qualaji and Kajilapa.
>>40801550>>Green Rectangular Component>>Crystal Prism Component>>War Scythe>>Ask Quala to let you carry extra items on Kajilapa
>>40801698fuck waifus, I'm here for dat sweet golem loot.
>>40801550>Don't ask>Don't investigate the steel poleSo much poor decision-making in this thread.
>>40801768Behemoths are quadrupeds, so no. While Kajilapa could possibly carry a weapon in her mouth, she wouldn't be able to wield it any more than a dog can wield a stick.
goddamn it tg has met it's one true love, phat magic loot. There goes all reason
>>40801790You do realize that the stuff is old, possibly haunted, and we might not even be able to sue it right?
>>40801790We can pick it up after we kill the fucking giants. Stop trying to overburden the golem and the behemoth.
>>40801845tg is full of wizards anon, it was always too late
Honestly, it's not like we could even bring anything we have Quala carry now home.The moment we part ways we'll have to abandon something anyways and we can't quickly grab anything she's carrying for us either, so it's basically just useless extra weight.
>>40801550>War ScytheIn case we lose our sword>Don't Ask>Don't investigateWe can come backBetter yet maybe we can ask that the Tribe helps us loot the place when we finish
Okay, tallying up the votes now.
>>40801811Oh well. I was hoping that they were somewhat like bears, in that they could do some things on their hind paws.
>>40801550>>Valuable-looking part>>Green Rectangular Component>Don't ask>Investigate the pole further
>>40801966Being able to do things on their hind paws is somewhat less important than opposable thumbs
>>40801961okay now thats bullshit usually votes last to around 10 minutes, maybe even 15 ,but 20 minutes is just asking for samefags on both sides to keep voting.
>>40801938Doubt it, place be too haunted for them.
>>40801966They can a little bit, but actually wielding weapons is beyond them.
>>40801961Waited a bit long to do that, eh? It was, what, nearly twenty minutes before you decided to tally?
>>40801961That's way too fucking long to tally votes man, that allows for samefags on both sides to stack the votes
Well since this seems to be upsetting everyone, and the main issue seems to be whether or not you're asking Quala to carry more stuff, I'm going to have a final destination vote for that one.>Ask Quala>Don't askFive minutes, final destination rules.
>>40802042If the IP count doesn't match with the votes he can just final destination it. Large scale samefagging is easy to detect now.
>>40802089Might want to actually link that vote.
>>40802075fix this anon.
>>40802067>Don't askCan we finish this quick so we can loot and go back to delicious meido?
>>40802067>Don't askShe seems uneasy already, let's not get greedy.
>>40802067>Don't askGolem parts are an imperial matter, not an Iquani matter.
>>40802124*loot in more depth
>>40802124>>40802132>>40802138Don't count.It's an FD vote, >Don't askonly
Don't ask wins.Writing.
>People still not understanding Final Destination rules.You don't type anything but the choice, anything else and the post is invalided.
>>40802206Derp, missed that.
So did people change their minds or was asking heavily samefagged at first?
>>40802206Well, now I just feel silly
>>40802245Pretty sure every side samefagged both votes (just like always), but I wouldn't be surprised if some people changed their minds after being reminded that asking may upset the waifu.
>>40802245I was lurking on my phone the first time around.
>>40802281I dunno, 30 unique posters. Unless there's IP witchery going on then I think the chance of samefagging isn't quite as high as some would believe
>>40802206First FD vote I've been in, feel like such a newfag.
>>40802353Yeah it's taking advantage of 4chan's anti-spam practices, while you can post a slightly different post every minute, it takes five minutes before you can post the EXACT same post again. So if you give two standardized posts, and limit it to 5 minutes, you KNOW every post is at worst someone fucking with their IP address, which is more work than a samefag is usually willing to put in.
>>40802347Lots of lurkers or people who simlpy haven't checked the tab early enough to vote to leave room for samefagging.The first vote for example was very likely samefagged.25 out of 30 people bothering to vote is pretty extreme.Second vote might have been.15 people voting in such a short timeframe is kind of pushing it.
While I've no doubt Kajilapa could carry a few additional items, I fear I've already pushed the princess enough as it is without asking to turn her behemoth into a pack mule.I retrieve the two function components, the greenish stone rectangle and the prism, storing them away in Raziel's few compartments. Returning to Qualaji, I find her sitting crosslegged atop Kajilapa, chin in her palm... I think she's sulking.“Princess?”...and now she's glaring.“Sorry Quala, we can go now.”“About time, the sooner these tunnels are behind us the better.”She hops up onto her feet, flashing me a smile and issuing a command to Kajilapa, who gratefully lumbers away from the dusty side rooms and onwards, the behemoth's head bumping affectionately against Raziel's side as she steps up alongside me. Well, at least they doesn't seem to be the type to hold a grudge about every little thing. Even setting aside the potential political ramifications of offending the princess, I'd feel bad about it on a personal level, and I have more than enough concerns weighing on my mind right now without adding that to them.The path heads past the armory, and starts to slope up sharply, giving way to staircases with complex pulley systems along the edges for ferrying large groups of the fort's military personnel. Kajilapa gives a sniff, shaking her head slightly, I'm still a long way from understanding every sign the behemoth gives, and I doubt I'll ever understand her even a fraction as well as Quala does, but I'd say she looks a little happy.“Kajilapa smells fresh air, this must lead up to the top of the mesa,” Quala explains.(cont)
>>40802677The top of the mesa means we'll be out of these tunnels, but it also most likely brings us closer to Mama Stump, we'll have to be even more cautious. Before long, I spot faint light ahead, and gesturing for Quala to wait, I take a few steps ahead, peering out into the heavy grey skies.The top of the mesa is fortified, several massive buildings surrounded by countless smaller ones. Many of them are smashed or defaced, and the imperial banners have been torn from the walls of the central command building, replaced with what look suspiciously like tanned behemoth hides.There's no way we can go out there without being spotted by anyone who cares to look, there simply isn't enough cover to hide a golem and a behemoth. I can't see any giants, but they could easily be lurking in one of the larger structures.Of course there is one other option, one method by which we could sneak in and scout out the area unseen, but the risks would be great.>Go out in Raziel>Scout it out stealthily on foot>Go alone>Go with Quala
>>40802696>Scout it out stealthily on foot>Go with Quala
>>40802696>Scout it out stealthily on foot>Go with QualaBeing alone with mai waifu.
>>40802696>Scout it out stealthily on foot>>Go with Qualacan't we wait until they get bored and move?
>>40802696>>Scout it out stealthily on foot>Go alone
>>40802788They most likely live up there, so you could be in for a very long wait.
>>40802696Scout it out and invite but don't request Quala to come along
I have returned and am catching up now!You can expect more activity from now on, Lordy.
Amending my vote of >>40802889 with >>40802872 suggestion.
>>40802696>Go out in Raziel>Go aloneWe have the tank build right now anywayPlus our tactic literally requires us to be the bait
>>40802696>Go out in Raziel>Go with Quala
>>40802868got a guess on how long the wait?
>>40800739Could Sief learn some simple prayers or something once we get back, in case we run into anything like this in the future?
>>40802696>Go out in Raziel
>>40802980He could probably learn a few simple prayers and such, whether they'd be at all effective when he used them is another matter entirely. Sief is no priest.
>>40803004>Translation: The spirits are dead. The gods are eternal
>>40801550Okay, I'm catching up and really fucking hope you people weren't absolutely retarded.Taking this stuff right now is the definition of idiotic, we can loot this shitty place after we kill the giants, if we find no good weapon then come back later.
>>40803023No gods don't exist and are the moral excuse giant kind uses to justify their actions. Spirits don't listen to Sief because he's like Conan and has no talent for praying.
Looks like you're going on a sneaking mission.Writing.
>>40803050In that case, step 2 after dealing with this place is make a friend who's good at praying
I step off the main path into a secluded side area, Quala following me curiously as I open the cockpit.“There's no way we can go up there with Raziel and Kajilapa without getting spotted, and we don't want to get in a fight with Mama Stump, Tooth and the wyvern at once. I'm going to go up on foot and take a look around, then we can make a plan of attack. You can come with me if you want, or you can stay here and guard Raziel.”Quala frowns. “Hmm, that's a bold plan, you'd be in some serious trouble if you got caught on foot.”“I know, but if it helps us get the drop of Mama Stump, then it's worth the risk.”“Well, I can't let you go alone then. What kind of a story would it make if we told of how Princess Qualaji sat and waited while her comrade risked life and limb on a daring mission,” Quala grins, climbing down off of Kajilapa.“Okay Kajilapa, if we aren't back within a day, I want you to leave, understood, go back to the camp. No heroics, you hear me.” she calls.Kajilapa gives a sad moan, snout bumping against Quala's chest, the princess scratching at the small scales on the bridge.Breaking away from her unhappy behemoth, Quala strides over, slapping me on the shoulder. “Let's go, Sief.”(cont)
>>40803358I take a deep breath, shifting the scabbard of my sword at my belt. It will be all but useless against a giant, but it's a comfort to have it all the same. Thankfully, the murky skies above have made it dark and shadowy despite the sun still being high overhead, and we slip out from the archway to the cover of a nearby smaller building, most likely an abandoned barracks from the looks of it.“Okay, looks like there's four buildings up here large enough to hold a giant. The main command building at the centre of the mesa, the artillery stations by the east and west walls, and the golem hanger just south of the western artillery station. There's watch towers along the wall too, if we could get up onto one of the ones that're still standing, we might have a better vantage point to look around,” I explain, Quala taking in my explanation silently.“If I was going to guess on Mama Stump being anywhere, it would be that command building.”“Most likely, the question is whether we want to go straight there or check out the rest of the mesa first to ensure we don't get blindsided by any unpleasant surprises.”>Command Building>Western Artillery Station>Eastern Artillery Station>Golem Hanger>Watchtower
>>40803376>>Golem HangerMight find a backup means of attack.
The princess really wants that glory, doesn't she.
>>40804316We could give her a hole lot of glory
>>40804349Did you pay attention to ANY of the political stuff Warlord went over?
We slip from building to building, most of them holding little more than scattered bones, rusting weapons, and scattered personal effects. The rumble of distant thunder is the only sound I hear was we pick our way towards the watchtower.Every step of the way I expect to be confronted by the lurking giants, erupting from some wall or hiding place to crush me, and from the tension in Quala's movements, I know she feels the same.Fortunately, my fears prove to be just that, and we make it to the nearest undamaged tower without incident. I draw my sword as I step inside, while the giants couldn't fit within the confines of the tower, there could be other dangers lurking in the dusty corners of the ruins.Quala steps in behind me as I scan the ground floor chamber, a winding staircase clinging to the walls of the tower disappearing up into the darkness. The ground floor holds a table with the crumbling remnants of some maps and plans upon it, chairs still sat around its edge, a rusting iron bed frame set up against one corner, the mattress long having festered away to nothing.“It's dusty, I don't think anything's living in here,” Quala whispers, though she doesn't loosen her grip on the short curved blade in her hand, her bow slung over her back.Since the only way to go seems to be up, I mount the stairs, Quala close behind. Every floor is much like the first, home to dust, death and little else. We reach the top of the stairs, the highest point of the watchtower, a horn rusting against one wall, the brazier of a signal fire tarnished by the elements.Quala and I head over to the interior side of the roof, looking across the fort. The first thing I notice is the eastern artillery station. A large hole has been torn in the rooftop, exposing it to the elements, the stone around the hole looking jagged, as if clawed. If I had to guess, I'd say the wyvern is nesting there.(cont)
>>40804400I turn my attention to the other buildings, the western artillery station looks untouched, indeed some of the artillery still sits on its roof, a little worn but still in one piece. It's old, but it's as formidable as ever, designed to take down behemoths, giants, and any other threat to the empire's dominance. While it wasn't enough to save the fort, it might still be useful.The Golem Hanger is... strange, part of the roof is missing, looking as if it's been smashed from within, and from here I can see a mound of animal carcasses festering behind the building. As I squint into the gloom through the missing section of roof, I make out a momentary movement, pallid oily skin against the darkness.I spend some time watching for the figure to return, but it doesn't, so I turn my attention next to the command building. There is definitely activity within, fires burning behind the barred windows, it sees a lot of use.“You come up with a plan yet?” Quala asks, stood at the edge of the tower alongside me.“Not yet.”The princess nods, turning and walking away, I hear her footsteps stop at the far side of the tower, and hear an uncharacteristic gasp escape her. Concerned, I turn to look, hand on the hilt of my sword.(cont)
>>40804359Smutfags don't care, you should've learned alread.This could have been a cute platonic romance with maybe just a bit of petting at most, and then meeting again years later, but anons won't allow it.
>>40804425Quala stands at the far wall of the watchtower roof, hands on the crenelations. I walk up alongside her, Quala's gaze fixed onto the land beneath, and as I look out, I can understand why. We must be hundreds of feet up by now, and on the far side of the fort from the battlefield. Even with the grey skies above, the sight of the Iquani Expanse stretching out to the horizon beneath is incredible, winding rivers against the mixed yellows and greens of sandy earth and tough grasses, gazelle and zebras grazing, even a pair of wild behemoth plodding slowly, ponderously across the landscape.“I wonder how many years it has been since someone stopped to appreciate this sight,” Quala smiles, eyes wide with a look of wonder I haven't seen from the princess before now.“We shouldn't loiter.”“I know, but... just a minute longer.”I sigh, turning out to gaze across the landscape once more. Maybe it's because of all those hours spent in the oppressive darkness of the caverns, but standing up here with Quala gazing out across the world, I feel strangely content.>End of Thread
>>40804359Yes, anon, people are well aware of the inherent risks to banging a princess. No, I will not give into your paranoia and not pursue her or fuck her without her father's permission. No, I do not think it will ruin the quest
Thank you all for playing. I can stick around for some Q&A for a little while if there's any questions.
>>40804426and why would they? All of Warlord's quest center on smut at one point or another, it's one of his main draws along with his settings. You should've known that coming in
>>40804445Yayyyyyy. Looks like the Golem Hangar is there the giants live. That intact artillery looks promising. When we finish up, we should look into organizing some kind of joint Iquani-Imperial expedition to clear out and salvage the fort, to "put the dead to rest and promote peace between our people" or somesuch.
>>40804426Political marriage, If Quala is far enough down the line of succession. Marry her to Sief a Noble without a lot of pull in the empire and call it a way of creating a more permanent peace. No, I do not know anything about how this sort of thing works.
>>40804484Warlord said this quest would not be as smut heavy as OWQ by a bunch. This is his least smutty setting. Meaning we try to fuck everything bad things can and will occur.>>40804448So having an entire nation trying to kill us isn't something you're worried about? You're either unreasonably brave or very stupid.>>40804480How much would that expensive piece of golem be worth? Enough for us to get the trade road started?>>40804511Not a bad idea.
>>40804484Lordy explicitly said GKQ will be less smutty, and Sief had a complex about sex, in case you haven't notices.>>40804536The other Imperial nobles likely wouldn't appreciate it.
>>40804550>implying we'd allow ourselves to get caughtYou fuckers always pull this shit, claiming the worst scenario will happen if we do A, B or CAnd who said anything about fucking everything? I believe most people just want to fuck the princess.
>>40804511> Looks like the Golem Hangar is there the giants live.That and the command building. Or one is a "kitchen" and the other "sleeping grounds"
>>40804550>How much would that expensive piece of golem be worth? Enough for us to get the trade road started?A fair bit, maybe not enough to get the trade road started, but it would certainly help.
>>40804577And Loren.And any cute girls we come across.And so on.
>>40804571I would like to know why the nobles wouldn't like it. Is it because less warmaking? or because Oh noes now they have nobles in our lands! or something else?
>>40804623Does Sief have a sex complex, or are we to roleplay that we don't?
>>40804630Personally, not for Loren, seems creepy to want to sleep with someone you knew when they were a young child. but that's just me. then again I may not be remembering the age difference correctly.
>>40804577>You fuckers always pull this shit, claiming the worst scenario will happen if we do A, B or CThing is if we do fuck her and she get's betrothed to another man? We are fucked. Hard. If we want to fuck her we better be willing to marry her.Also Anosn want to fuck the amid and any other cute girl because anons are horny and don't realize the setting differences.>>40804644He does cause his father is a drunken horny rutting bastard. Read the quest.>>40804623Would it be enough to get investors because we have the initial start up in hand?>>40804664She's in her 30-40s and anons still want to fuck her cause CHRITMAS CAKE!
>>40804632Because they don't like the Iquani.>>40804664Loren has 15+ years on Sief.And it's irrelevant what you want, you said "most people just want to fuck the princess", which is not true.>>40804644He does, it has been stated in character that he has a complex about sex, he doesn't want to think about such impure things because it reminds him of his father.
>>40804630was never for Loren, prefer delicious brown skin
>>40804679>Thing is if we do fuck her and she get's betrothed to another man?To be fair, hymens can tear through horse riding, and Iquani seem to do a lot of horse riding.
>>40804679>>40804690I'd like Warlord to answer the question, if he may.
>>40804690>40804664 (You)Loren has 15+ years on Sief.And it's irrelevant what you want, you said "most people just want to fuck the princess", which is not true.You have the wrong anon. This one is merely not interested in Loren.
>>40804644Sief certainly does have some issues about it, they are not issues that are insurmountable provided he can separate the act from the bad opinion of it he got from the way his father carries on.If people start voting for Sief to just try and fuck people out of the blue the outcome would be Sief freaking out before he could go through with it however.>>40804679>Would it be enough to get investors because we have the initial start up in hand?Possibly, provided you could talk them into it.>>40804679>She's in her 30-40s and anons still want to fuck her cause CHRITMAS CAKE!Loren is in her early thirties.
>>40804693>>40804664I'm the opposite, we've repeatedly been told not to fuck the princess, doing it is blatantly retarded.
>>40804728Did you intend for him to have issues with intimacy? If so, why not just make this a smut free quest and quit advertising that there will be?
>>40804754Because I fully intend for him to overcome those issues during the course of the quest, and when that happens, I will write smut, because I enjoy writing smut.
>>40804754Because there are these things called personalities and character arcs.Jesus Christ don't be such a whiny baby about not getting your precious smut.There will eventually be smut, but this is NOT a smut quest, smut isn't the focus of it.>>40804773fuck off>L-look mommy, I told him to f-fuck off!
>>40804754He started the character off that way and said this would be more about the golems and other shit than the sex. Stop being butthurt over the fact the character isn't man whore. We'll have to work for it and the smut will mean something.>>40804741Building the relationship is fine, but no sticking it in. Agreed.>>40804773Fucking her in the immediate future is retarded and you know it.
>>40804741While I'm all for the princess, I would prefer to avoid the associated problems with just having our way with her. Romance her, etc. Calling it blatantly retarded is overboard. unless we suddenly decide to have sex on the way back, and somehow get sief to go through with it.
>>40804349>Caused a shitstormWelp, this is the last time I pun.
>>40804754>>40804798I'm not trying to come off as butthurt, I just see a lot of anons seemed against smut and there's a lot of bleed over from his other quests so I figured I'd suggest perhaps warning that there isn't smut? Chill man
To answer the question of smut in Golem Knight Quest clearly.This quest was never intended to be anywhere near as smutty as my other two. That said, I do enjoy writing smut, and this quest does include love interests, some that you have already met, some that you have yet to meet. They are not intended to tease you with "cannot have", if you go about it the right way, you could end up with any of the women presented in this quest without triggering some looming bad end. Hell maybe with more than one if you are very smart in how you deal with them and with how you help Sief develop.Sief dealing with his issues and growing as a person is a big part of this quest, and part of that will include him overcoming his issues with intimacy. When that happens, there will most likely be some smut, there will never be a large amount of smut, but it will be there.I apologize if anyone came into this quest expecting more/less smut, but that's the level of smut I decided on when I was coming up with the concept, and that's the level I intend to keep.
>>40804927alright mate, thanks for clearing that up. I'll probably stick to Elshhu and Orc Warlord then, since I prefer their pace to this one
>>40804927The amount of smut is fine and since I read your posts I knew what was going on ahead of time. I like this quest, it's fun and no incessant waifuing, or must fuck x because I want.
>>40805008No worries anon, I know that none of my quests are for everyone.
>>40805026because must do x for treasure was any better
>>40805040Can only contain so much sperg from tg at a time. OWq has both though so yes it's better.
I actively want us to fuck Quala BECAUSE of the consequences.The SCANDAL, the SECRECY, the WORRY, I want it all!
>>40805095That's partly why I want to do it. I like doing shit like that. Anons are always trying to stay in their secure little bubble and hoard and skill grind to avoid conflict. Fuck that, dive head first into that shit
>>40804927Hope you feel better as well Lordy.
>>40805089>no incessant waifuingjust because there will be less smut doesn't mean there won't be incessant waifuing. Just give it time anon
>>40805095>>40805108Thing is that could easily kill us off sine it'd be an entire nation. I'm fine with making out or heavy petting, but nothing penetrative, at least until we can drop a couple of Jotunn in a fight at once.
>>40805116Yeah, much better thanks, it wasn't anything serious.
>>40805148And? Anon, do you not understand about us wanting that risk factor? I want there to be the inherent risk of getting caught, I think that's fun. You clearly don't
>>40805177Lol we get hunted down and killed like a dog starting a civil war after everyone we know and love is slaughtered. At this point it'd be suicide. This isn't risk a risk is a 50 50 shot of dying this is pull the rigger on a fully loaded gun Russian roulette.
>>40805236Look it's actually pretty hard to get caught deflowering someone from a horse riding culture, we're actually not that likely to get caught unless we start up a serious romance where we're meeting up and fucking all the time.
>>40805236what this guy said>>40805269quit clucking chickenshit little
So lordy is there any degree to which we could earn Iquani honor "on our terms" something LIKE cleaning up the battlefields, which would involving facing all kinds of ghosts and is clearly dangerous, would that provide it's own form of respect even if it isn't the "standard" respect of hunting down a monster?
>>40805269Unless she get's betrothed to another warrior and he finds out whoops she not a virgin like she's supposed to be. Also do you think the princess is the sort of girl who'd fuck just for the hell of it? Fucking her means a relationship, people with good instincts can figure shit out real fast.
>>40805331It would earn you a fair bit of goodwill, yes, but that wouldn't quite be the same as respect for glorious victories in battle.
>>40805335It means a relationship, but one we'd probably have to sustain on letterwriting and promises that we'd earn her hand. And I specified horseriding culture specifically because she almost certainly has already broken her hymen riding horses. And even if she hasn't unless she specifically wants revenge on us for some reason she'd likely explain that was how it broke rather than outing us.
>>40805374Yeah I realize it wouldn't be same, but could it get us princess marrying partial credit at least?
>>40805380Point is Sief isn't nearly ready, and it could go horribly wrong easier than you may think. You're assuming the princess and everyone else will act according to plan. Warlord doesn't have that happen often.
>>40805404It couldn't hurt provided you'd also done some proper glorious things.
So here's what I think Sief should aim for:-Figure out who the man Momma', "who's the father 'round these parts," Stump answers who, this guy who told Stump to kill Sief's Mother.-Figure out why this man wanted Sief's Mother dead-Get more security on House Atanor's lands-Develop House Atanor lands-Get a better mechanic for Raziel-Get a nice trade route going through House Atanor lands-Woo the Princess-Do something impressive so that we can marry the Princess.Bam.
>>40805424See, I think we should start talking up the cleaning out the haunted places, because if necessary we can use it for cover travelling around to where we need to for any further revenge for Sief's mom, we can travel around our own country asking for support cleaning up the battlefield, putting the dead to rest, recovering family heirlooms, while also secretly pursuing whatever leads we may find.Then when we're actually working on it we can always take breaks to get glory as opportunities come up, Ideally fighting alongside the prince we already met because if we want to impress her dad it certainly won't her to be getting talked up by her brother.
>>40805424Woo Loren.Turn his father into a somewhat respectable man.Git gud at golem'ing.Find out more shit about his mother and that cuboid.Find cool shit.Also the better mechanic is already underway, maybe, don't wanna do anything about it if it turns out as some anons hoped it would.
>>40805424-Figure out who the man Momma', "who's the father 'round these parts," Stump answers who, this guy who told Stump to kill Sief's Mother.soon-Figure out why this man wanted Sief's Mother deadwill likely take doing-Get more security on House Atanor's landsneed more money but yes we need this.-Develop House Atanor landsNeed money for this too, maybe that valuable piece can be brought back for funds?-Get a better mechanic for RazielDefinitely but we nee money unless uncle comes through and even then.-Get a nice trade route going through House Atanor landsShould take priority once we get abck, give us a lot of clout and funding once done.-Woo the Princessworking on it even now, sief just doesn't realize it.-Do something impressive so that we can marry the Princess.Hmm Need to find a couple Jotuns or grab a few buddies and off a Leviathan.need to straighten dad out preferably by making him busy and making him careNeed to find out about that cube of Mom's too. probably important might even involve why she died.
>>40805534Oh and it will also probably earn us SOME renown in our own country which might shut people up a bit about us marrying one of those damn horsefuckers (i'm sure we call them horsefuckers, everyone with any connection to horses ALWAYS get called horsefuckers.) And also depending on what we find out about mom will give us an opportunity to discuss it with her family without it being intercepted when we travel there, if no one gets sent to help us. If someone DOES get sent to help us they'll probably have some way of communicating in code to back home so this will be slightly less necessary.
Right then, since there seems to be no more questions, I'm going to go get some sleep.Thread archived:>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Golem%20Knight%20Quest
