You are Sallazar, a young wizard who has recently left the army. You have taken a teaching job at Egwen Girls Convent.In addition the Headmaster of the school wants you to run the schools adventurers club, to give some of the schools more...unusual...girls something fun to do.The Adventurers Club http://pastebin.com/t467eb4qClasses and Races http://pastebin.com/wCst2V8BQuest Rules http://pastebin.com/RG9EAvPqMain Character http://pastebin.com/xHFh2iz2Setting http://pastebin.com/ej98zdgDContinent Map http://ibin.co/260vHqwvCza9After a frustrating time in the nearby town of Brand you head back to the school. You’ve missed lunch and head straight to the afternoons lessons.Your internal frustrations must have been showing, as none of the girls in your classes misbehave, instead they shoot worried glances at one another.After lessons are done, and you’ve herded your final class to the dining hall, you climb the stairs to see the Headmaster in his office...you rather thoughtfully has had his skeletal servants lay out dinner for both of you on a side table in his study.“I missed you at lunch” he says “I wondered where you had gotten.”As soon as you have got sat down and started eating, the whole frustrating saga comes bubbling forth.“And then that greedy asshole, Aldersly, has the audacity to ask me to guarantee him the money.” You finish your tale “so of course I told him I would need to speak to you and refused to commit to anything”.“Very wise” says Sir Sarum, taking a sip of his wine “600 gold a year is easily found in the school accounts, its not a burdensome costs, but neither is the property tax burden of Brand so high – I would be surprised if 150 gold a year wasn’t enough to cover twenty homes. Still, I leave the decision in your hands – I’m currently negotiating with the school board over an annual stipend for the Adventurers Club, but 150 gold a year can easily be taken from that.”
So the greedy bastard was trying to charge you about four times what he’d actually need, sounds about right.You try a legal argument “is this deal something that could be taken to court and if so in what way would that likely play out? I mean: would there be an order to stop building new homes? What type of court would hear the case? What is the druid land, legally speaking?”“I’m no lawyer” says Sir Sarum “though some of my skeletons were. I believe it would fall under private contract law, with the agreement made between the mayor and the druids, with the mayor, as representative of the town, being responsible for holding Mr Aldersly to the deal, which he is clearly not doing. As the Mayor is involved in the case, he cannot hear the case personally, no it would go to the nearby lord, Baron Haplendale I believe.”“How do you think he’d rule?” you ask“In whatever way gets him out of the courtroom quickest and back to his favourite pursuits of drinking, hunting and whoring” says Sir Sarum, with obvious contempt “The young Baron is burning through his estate funds rather quickly though, he might be amenable to a bribe...but he has little love for druids – they’ve interrupted the slaughterfests he calls *hunts* before.”“Oh, lovely” you say gloomily.“Still” says the Headmaster “It was Taynathil you met.”“Oh yes” you say, you’ll not easily forget that arrogant bitch...“Pride is her weakness” says Sir Sarum “challenge her to a contest in an area she thinks she is superior to you in, and beat her, putting as wager her service as a teacher.”“What am I supposed to beat her at, archery?” you snark“Perhaps the girls can help you there” he suggests. Well, maybe...“Anyway” he says “the girls will have finished their dinner, and you have training to attend to.”Actions?>Stay and talk to Sir Sarum>Call club meeting>Recruit girls (options in next post)>Head back to Brand>Other (what)
>>40878739>Call club meeting
[Meta]Apologies about not sticking around for questions last thread.Yes, there will be bonus XP for artExp award for PDF character sheets: You gain 3XP for the MC, and 15 for the club pool. You’ll continue to gain 1 and 5 PER THREAD as long as they keep up to date.Hopefully I’ve answered the legal questions in OP.XP can be spent at any time, but training sessions are a suitable time to spend it, yes.Today’s thread will be a little short – about 6 hours. Tonight my monk is due to save the day on roll20 again.I expect to be around to answer questions.[End Meta]
>>40878753Would anyone have a problem with getting 2 ranks of Teaching and Rapid Spell Mantle for Salazar?>>40878739>Call club meeting
>>40878777>Would anyone have a problem with getting 2 ranks of Teaching and Rapid Spell Mantle for Salazar?Honestly I'd rather get full ranks in teaching as soon as possible, since I don't imagine we will need much improved combat ability anytime soon.
>>40878816Yes. Teaching, being a niche skill, only costs 1 XP per rank.
>>40878825In which case we should just get all 5 Ranks.
>>40878739>“Perhaps the girls can help you there”Well, Calluna could probably get enough agility and archery skill to beat her pretty fast, thanks to Overcome Anything.
>>40878833Alright.Salazar, 5/14 XP spent, 9 remaining>Teaching +5 (5), -5 XPAny objections?
>>40878855Not from me.
>>40878859Can Calluna use crossbows with her tentacles, with the regular -2 penalty?
>>40878880When she learns *how* to use a crossbow, probably yes
>>40878855Gonna give this 10 more minutes to allow for any objections, then make it official
>>40878887How exactly does the "Trainer" system work.What are the restrictions on not having a trainer of a certain class? Can we only teach skills that fall under class abilities for a trainer we have?
>>40878855Go for it.
>>40878902>What are the restrictions on not having a trainer of a certain class?The girls can only train towards a specific class when working with a trainer for that class. So if they spend XP on strength, and are working with a Fighter (or Barbarian) trainer, they can use that towards the 20 needed to qualify for that class. If not working with a trainer, they spend the XP and gain the strength, but do not count it towards qualifying for the class, and thus cannot access the special abilities of that class.>Can we only teach skills that fall under class abilities for a trainer we have?No, you're at a school; the regular teachers could teach skills, but unless working with a trainer, it does not count towards gaining a class.
XP spent on teaching skill
“You’re right Headmaster” you say, rising from your seat “thank you for your time”“Any time my boy” he says “any time”---You round up the girls, and Groundskeeper Answick, and head out to the clubhouse.As the girls file in, they look around with interest at the training dummies, wooden weapons on their racks, the array of peculiar metal objects that are probably thieves tools, the ropes piled up and the second-hand alchemy sets and spellbooks.“Alright” you say “you’re probably wondering why I’ve gathered you here-”“Ohh, oh I know!” says Chame “seven young nubile school girls, two old guys, late at night, far away from anywhere, with weird creepy ritual stuff, restraint and sharp objects, this is a religious studies lesson.”The girls variously roll their eyes, snort and/or giggle, you wait until they calm down and then say “no” in the best deadpan tone you can manage.“The Headmaster asked me to run the Adventuring Club and I agreed” you say “I was there when it all started, but apparently its gone from a handful of enthusiasts to an international competition now, and next year, a Junior Championship. The purpose of this club is to learn how to be adventurers, including dungeoncrawling, though I understand there will be some open-air fights as well.”“Now, back yonder in the distant past” you say, picking up a wooden weapon “we used shield spells and had potions of healing on hand, these days there are other safety features – you’ll find out more when you go through your first dungeon – two days from now.”That’s got their attention: you see expressions of shock, some fear, and from others, anticipation.And how will you finish your introduction?>Girls, you *will* win the Junior Championships>You will gain useful skills from this>This is your first step on the road to being the best you can be>Having fun is the most important thing>Other (what?)Feel free to mix and match results

So, how do we want to train the girls before the next dungeon?We gotChame(Who I have honestly no idea what to do with, maybe she would enjoy Druid wildhsaping at some point?)Evrumine >Barbarian, obviously. Get her HP higher and invest in melee skillsNevyn>Would actually make our best fighter rather than Rogue right now. While Rogue is her favoured class, her Wereform makes her the best tank we got. And we can put the Xp still to Rogue, weshould just focus on the direct combat stuff, rather than sneaking.Phaysis>Wants to be a Ranger, is honestly actually one of our best frontline fighters right now. Should probably invest in Fighter, for now. In addition to learning some bow skills.Anlanesa>I would suggest sorcerer and some combat skills, so she gets Arcane Energy to use for her Innate Magic, so she can get Cone of Cold to fuel her racial abilities, all of which are amazing. Especially Ice Giant.Cleya>WIZARDS>Growing Powers to get her some 3 level spells really fast. And more Eyestalks.Calluna>You remember how much fun mass guns with Rapid Shot was in PRQ? Time for round two.
Gonna try posting it at the start of new threads from now on, depending on how exactly XP spending for the girls works.Replaced "Unspent XP" with "Unspent TP", in case someone wonders, because the girls don't have individual unspent XP anyway.
“We’re training for a competition here” you say “but remember, having fun is the most important part, this is a game, not a war. You’re here to pick up some skills and knowledge that will stand you in good stead for the rest of your lives because this is your first step on the past of really living up to your fullest potential.”You pause to see how well you’re doing. So far they’re paying attention, and smiling tolerantly, like they’ve heard this sort of speech before.Phaysis raises a hand“Yes, Phaysis” you say.“Don’t you think we can win sir?” she asks breathlessly, her eyes wide, and her lower lip stuck out and trembling, her hands clasped under her chin. Standing next to her Nevyn stifles a giggle.“Of course you can win girls!” you say triumphantly “you’re going to be the champions!”The girls give a cheer, which dies down as you say “so, dungeoncrawling is going to involve a lot of physical activity, warm up exercises come first, yes even for the wizards” you say as Cleya raises a hand “being able to duck and run is an important skill. So, go and grab your gym clothes, and be back here in ten minutes.”The girls all scramble out of the door. Once they’re gone, Groundskeeper Answick asks “So, which girls are gonna be doing what sir?”That’s a good thought, what are you going to be training each of the seven girls for?>I’ll pick the girls classes (options in next post)>I’ll tell them about the classes, and they choose>Nothing class-specific, today we work on basics (particular skill, feat etc?)>Other (what?)Default is training towards a specific class, but you can train for specific skills, feats etc as well.No XP choices in this vote – that will come up in a later option.
>>40879221>Nothing class-specific, today we work on basics (particular skill, feat etc?)
>>40879221>I’ll tell them about the classes, and they choose
>>40879221We don't have that much available in classes we can teach, so I suggest>I'll tell them about the classes, and that they should start thinking about what they would like to dountil then>Nothing class-specific, today we work on basics (particular skill, feat etc?)So they can get familiar witht he skills and experiment around what they might like

>>40879245>Rangers can MeleeYes, but she specifically said she wanted to do archery. Nothing says she can't do both, but I found it should be mentioned and taken into account.>>40879245>Need a Rogue Type; Multiclassing?Definitly, Rogue has lots of useful skills and she can be overshadowed as tank when a few other girls might joinAlthough Chame might be a good rogue type too
>>40879260I fully expect Arcane Trickster level nonsense out of Chame.
>>40879260>Although Chame might be a good rogue type tooChame would be a fantastic Rogue, especially with ranged combat.Just stick her to a ceiling and rain arrows on the enemy.
>>40879221>Nothing class-specific, today we work on basics (particular skill, feat etc?)Get them to train with weapons before doing in a dungeon
Ok, talking about classes, and all-round training it is, writing.Meta: This won't gain the girls training points, but it will allow then to spend XP on anything, due to the eclectic nature of the training.Spend some club XP now?>Y/N5 minute vote, further options after update
>>40879174>ChameProbably best suited for Rogue, her natural talents and demeanor blend well with it.>NevynMonk might be better for her than Fighter, especially if it boosts her Beast Form's natural attack damage, since that combined with Deadly Strike could get absurd.>PhaysisRanger is probably a better damage dealing frontliner than Fighter, due to how many powers they get specifically for fighting multiple foes in melee. It's also better for ranged combat. Fighter is pretty support-oriented.
>>40879295>YSome are already obvious choices, and we got Answick and us to let them put some XP towards a few classes for those it concerns.
>>40879307>Fighter is pretty support-oriented.True, looking it over again it really doesn't work for that.It reminds me that we also need to figure out who will lead the team.
>>40879323Let's put the tentacle girl in charge.
>>40879335She is the one with the highest Fellowship.But I'm not sure if her attitude wouldn't get in the way.Anlanesa has as much of a Fellowship score, and she has it as Primary attribute.
“Rather than training them in specific skills” you say to Answick “I think it’s best if we gve them a chance to try everything, or as much as we can demonstrate right now. It’ll give them something to think about; then hopefully they can pick their own classes.”“Right you are sir” says Answick, and then gives you a sly look “You any good with that staff?”“Well that depends” you say “Are you any good with a sword?”---The girls, all changed into their gym clothes, or in Anlanesa’s case, swimwear, all come barrelling in to the room.They pull up short at the sight of you and Groundskeeper Answick in padded gear, and holding wooden weapons.“Alright girls” you say “after ten laps around the clubhouse as a warm up, we’re going to talk you through the different classes and what they are good at, firstly, the more combat-oriented classes. Groundkeeper, when you’re ready.”Wheezing a bit after that demonstration you say “ok, there are several classes that mix spellcasting with other abilities, first up, the Bard...”---After the giggling has died down you say “yes, very perceptive Chame, now if you’d please give Cleya her t-shirt and ah, under-shirt garment back, thank you.”Cleya is naked from the waist up, her arms and hands covering her essentials, and glaring at Chame. Chame is holding Cleyas gym shirt and bra “Special bard dis-armouring technique” she says with a grin.“So yes, um, some bards might be good at negating at opponents armour by uh, removing, the skill I don’t think is a common one, moving on.” ---“Now we get to the best classes of all” you say with more enthusiasm “mages, such as wizards, sorcerers, and yes I suppose druids and priests also technically qualify. Now magic is a very powerful and versatile tool but it takes time, focus and talent to master.”
After you’ve discussed each class (and demonstrated what you can) you say “ok girls, now you’re each going to spend a few minutes trying the techniques we can teach you, and then you can pick which ones you want to learn today, afterwards we’ll talk about which classes you want to start training in. Any questions? No, good, let’s get started.”>Spend XP on specific stuff (what?)Discuss as long as you want as I write the next update. If there is consensus, we’ll go with that, otherwise I’ll call a vote.Note: XP spent today can count towards a specific class at player choice, but the girls gain no training points from this session.
>>40879492Can we only spend XP at skills and such right now, or already on some of the girls racial abilities?
>>40879504On anything you want.
Evrumine, 11/70 XP spent, 59 remaining>Constitution +2 (14), -2 XP>Hit Points +5 (10), -5 XP>Melee Training +1 (1), -4 XP>Evrumine has become a Barbarian!Nevyn, 10/59 XP spent, 49 remaining>Hit Points +4 (8), -4 XP>Beast Form, -6 XPI have a reason for those HP. Beast Form costs 4 AE to enter, and since Nevyn currently has no AE, she has to spend HP. 4 - 4 = 0, meaning she'd have to make a con check to stay awake every time she uses the power without additional HP.These are the only two I'm somewhat certain on.For Anlensa, probably just going to be some weapon skills and HP boosting, maybe a point or two of Willpower towards Sorcerer. Downside, she has it as a tertiary, upside the increased cost makes Sorcerer something that might actually be within her grasp.For Cleya, leaning towards nothing but Growing Powers, because eyestalks so OP.Some spell-likes, HP boosts and removing the tentacle penalty (2 XP) for Calluna, maybe a weaponskill (Rapier if melee since those use Agility instead of Strength, and her Strength is pretty bad right now).Phaysis would be +1 to Agi and Con, HP boost and ranged or melee weaponskills.
>>40879532Calluna needs to get Cure Light Wounds, in any case. She is the only healing skill we currently have access to.She should, IMO, go ranged and take 4 agility to get rid of her penalty with tentacles.Our frontline is already fairly crowded.>>40879532>For Cleya, leaning towards nothing but Growing Powers, because eyestalks so OP.Absolutely>>40879532Get Anlanesa 2 points of Willpower so she gets out of the penalty for her Innate Magic, and purchase Cone of Cold so she can get a AE pool. Otherwise buy her First Rank of Ice Giant and a melee skill.
>>40879532Let's get a weapon expertise for all of them.
>>40879561Nevyn's Beast Form bonus is roughly equivalent to a weapon expertise (effective +2 due to stat bonuses), but also comes with a bunch of natural attacks, bonus HP and increases to stats instead of just ToHit.She's the only one that isn't planned to get an actual weaponskill.>>40879560CLW was on the list to get.Calluna doesn't have Limbs Unrivalled, so multiple weapons held in tentacles might impart a penalty.I actually forgot that getting an IMP would give her an AE pool.
>>40879561What will we get for Chame? I don't think Lewd counts as a weapon.
Evrumine, 11/70 XP spent, 59 remaining>Constitution +2 (14), -2 XP>Hit Points +5 (10), -5 XP>Melee Training +1 (1), -4 XP>Evrumine has become a Barbarian!Nevyn, 10/59 XP spent, 49 remaining>Hit Points +4 (8), -4 XP>Beast Form, -6 XPChame 8/49 spent, 41 remaining>Stealthy 2 (4XP towards rogue)>Crossbow Fighting 2 (4XP towards rogue)Anlanesa 15/41 spent, remaining 26>Willpower +2 (4XP towards sorcerer)>Cone of Cold (3XP towards sorcerer)>Ice Giant (6XP)>Weapon Skill of Choice 1 (2XP towards Barbarian)
>>40879627Add axe expertise to Evrumine and Crossbow or Dagger expersite for Nevyn.>>40879617Chame can abuse her shapeshifting for perfect sneak attacks, sticking to someone's back and then stabbing them to death. So another melee weapon expertise for her, but her versatility could use a ranged expertise as well.
>>40879627Cone of Cold doesn't actually create ice, it just creates an area of extreme cold. No water is gained or lost.>>40879662No expertise for Nevyn, she wouldn't even be using them at this point, other than maybe Unarmed, since she'll be spending every encounter as a tentacle panther.Chame gets no bonus damage from sneak attacks without also getting the sneak attack skill.
>>40879690Then add Sneak Attack to Chame. How much XP is needed for that?
>>408797002 for each rank, total of five ranks.There are still three girls that need skills, you know, and 26 XP is already cutting it close. We don't need to realize every plan for the girls right now.
>>40879627cont.Calluna 5/26 spent, 21 remaining>Cure Minor Wounds[Cure Light Wounds doesn't exist] (1XP towards Wizard)>Agility +4 (2XP)>Dimension Door (2XP)She can basically use either Rapier or Crossbow whatever she wants.Cleya 6/21 soent, 15 remaining>Growing Powers 3 (6XP)Phaysis>Pally please tell us her primary and tertiary stats so I can calculate what +Agi/Con/Str would cost
>>40879708We have time until their first test/practice/whatever. Two days at least.>>40879717Phaysis doesn't have favored stats. Go nuts.
Guys, let's make Chame a Bard, not a Rogue. She's already mastered one of their skills.
>>40879708>There are still three girls that need skillsIssue with Cleya is, we already know what she wants to put Xp towards, its just that the only useful investment right now in that direction is Willpower, which doesn't do much on its own, and we don't have enough XP left to bring her into class range.
>>40879725>Phaysis doesn't have favored stats. Go nuts.Pally said last time I sked he just hasn't decided yet.>>40879726She doesn't really work for the actual bard class abilities. She doesn't need to have the class to act like one.
>>40879509Do we have something like Composite Bows here that would allow Phaysis to add some of her Strength modifier to ranged attacks?
>>40879726We can't train towards Bard, and you can take multiple classes.>>40879717+4 Agility would be 4 XP for Calluna.>>40879729Growing Powers. She can get any spell up to third level then cast it at zero cost as a free action once per round.
>>40879768>+4 Agility would be 4 XP for Calluna.>Raising a stat by 1 costs 1 XP, to a maximum stat of 12.>Primary Stats cost 1XP less per point purchasedCalluna Agility is 10 right now.Its very silly, but thats how its RAW so I went with that.>>40879768>Growing Powers.Doesn't go into Wizard class, which we want to get for her sooner or later.
>>40879753>Do we have something like Composite Bows here that would allow Phaysis to add some of her Strength modifier to ranged attacksAll bows add strength modifier to damage
>>40879803Could we get a clarification on this problem>>40879788
>>40879788You still need to actually pay for each point, anon. The difference between 10 and 14 is 4, not 2. The cost can never go below 1.Yes, later, because we can't even begin to afford it now and this is about optimization on a budget.
>>40879810>The cost can never go below 1.It doesn't actually say that anywhere, but you are probably right.
>>40879816>>The cost can never go below 1.>It doesn't actually say that anywhere, but you are probably right.He is, and I'll update the rules.Thanks for catching error anons.1XP gained for MC, 5XP for club pool for error-checking.
So, I assume this >>40879627Is largely okay with everyone for now?Calluna 7/26 spent, 19 remaining>Cure Minor Wounds[Cure Light Wounds doesn't exist] (1XP towards Wizard)>Agility +4 (4XP)>Dimension Door (2XP)Cleya 6/19 spent, 13 remaining>Growing Powers 3 (6XP)Phaysis 13>Agility +1 (1XP)>Longbow Training 1 (2XP)>[Melee Weapon] Training 1 (2XP)What Melee weapon should Phaysis have? We should make sure we have the full range of slashing/piercing/bashing, so should she get mace or spear?
>>40879828Aren't you being a little too liberal with XP awards?
>>40879854Something to take advantage of her centaur form, so spear/lance, or something similarly long. Maybe unarmed, if it affects her Hoof attacks? We could also just take Melee Expertise, the broad one.
>>40879855>>40879828I have to agree with him, we will peak out very fast with these girls if we continue to get XP at this rate.While that sort of thing is nice, a balanced game is nicer.I wanted to say the same thing about the .pdf update. One time XP is nice but +5 every thread is a lot, even with this many girls.And I'm saying that as the guy who makes it

>>40879869>We could also just take Melee ExpertiseI want to hold of melee training for her so we can buy it when we have the Ranger trainer to get her into that class ASAP.
>>40879893>Cleya, 8/8 XP spent, 0 remainingWe can't actually choose her spells for Growing Powers. We can only suggest a theme.
Apologies for the delay in posting, on phone
>>40879893Looks good to me.
>>40879908My themes are Disintegrate and Create Water.
>>40879893I'm not sure if Innate Magic abilities can be counted towards Sorcerer/Wizard class.I also would prefer to gear Calluna towards Wizard, to make use of the specilisation rules we would benefit from having several wizards, and she doesn't really get anything from Sorcerer class in particular.
>>40879855>>40879882Fair point, I'll slow it down some from here, though existing awards remain.
FUCK YEAH! ESQ!
>>40879931IMPs can be counted towards Sorcerer, but not Wizard, so long as they're spell-likes.She can be both.
>>40879931>I'm not sure if Innate Magic abilities can be counted towards Sorcerer/Wizard class.Sorcerer yes, Wizard no
>>40879893I suppose if we give Phaysis her Spear training 1, for 2XP from our Bonus XP, we got ourselves a deal here.
>>40879971Sure, though I'm reconsidering my "themes" for Growing Powers since I just remembered that Anlesca could get Wall of Ice, which involves the creation of a fairly large amount of Ice. They probably weren't valid anyway.
>>40879893>and we'll need someone to have Create WaterWell, we do know that girl that can learn Priest spells without needing the class...
>>40880008Can't we just have give Cleya the theme "Ice" for her growing power? If she learns Ice Wall, she can just use her Flame Spray to melt it.
>>40880011There are two of those, though we haven't met the other one yet.
>>40880018She wouldn't need to melt it. Anlanesa can use a large volume of water *or* ice for Ice Giant.I also don't see much of a point in specifically going for it with Cleya now that we can get Anlanesa a suitable power immediately, without playing the lottery, using the bonus XP.
>>40880036So we revise Cleya into just getting Growing Powers Rank3/2 each, Pallys choice.And Anlanesa gets>Wall of Ice (2XP sorcerer)
Evrumine has clearly enjoyed herself, and is a natural barbarian.Nevyn has discovered a new talent: part way through weapons training she got a little angry at her inability to lay a solid blow on Groundskeeper Answick and transformed into a Displacer Beast! You quickly trapped her in a resilient sphere until it became clear that she retained her intelligence and reason when transformed. Still it tired her out and she needed to rest after turning back.Unsurprisingly, Chame is taking to the sneaking lessons like a natural, and she is a pretty good shot with a crossbow too.Anlanesa mastered a cone of cold energy when attempting to use magic, it remains to be seen how else her powers will develop.Phaysis is working hard at getting good with a longbow.Calluna gave you all a shock when she her own powers manifested as the ability to step between spaces and heal injuries – such as Evrumine hitting Phaysis too hard with a wooden axe.Cleya discovered two new eyestalks she can manifest, after studying magic with you. It’s best to find out what they do later, somewhere safer, you’ve no idea what sort of powers she can learn.After a long training session the girls all sit down on the chairs in the corner of the clubhouse. Evrumine and Phaysis are sweating from their physical exertions and Evrumine is giggling, whilst Phaysis scowls.“That’s never happened before!” she insists.“What happened?” you ask.“Phaysis put on a helmet” says Evrumine, almost falling out of her chair as she giggles “And when she turned into a centaur she had a bridle on her! She’s a real riding horse now!”Phaysis glares at Evrumine “oh shut up you cow.”Evrumine goes from giggling to angry within seconds. Before she can escalate things you intervene “Both of you take a moment and calm down, Evrumine, Phaysis didn’t know she was going to do that, and it was no doubt embarrassing for her. Phaysis, that’s not a nice way to speak to Evrumine.”
The two eye each other suspiciously, and then mumble apologies.“And now that you’ve all had a chance to try the different skills and abilities” you say “which classes do you want to work towards?”“Barbarian!” says Evrumine “the biggest, baddest class there is!”“Oh rogue, defs” says Chame, then looks sly at Cleya “though when we get a trainer for it, bard could be fun too.”Cleya glares at Chame with all three eyes, then turns to you and says “Wizard sir, please.”“I’m torn between ranger and barbarian” says Phaysis, “Can I learn both?”“Fighter and Rogue” says Nevyn “pouncing on stuff and beating it is the best way to win, or should that be “Monk and rogue?”“I like Wizard too” says Anlanesa, sat next to Cleya. Hmm, but she’s more suited to sorcerer...“Calluna?” you ask her, sat at the back, away from the others “is there any class you like?”Calluna shrinks in her seat, as the other girls turn around “I dunno, Bard I guess.”Chame laughs loudly and gives a whoop. “Not like that” says Calluna, blushing “I mean, like, Bard does a bit of everything right? Some magic, some fighting, some Rogue skills, I kinda want to learn a bit of everything.”Well that’s true, but maybe multiple classes for her is a better idea, or perhaps she can step up into a leadership role?“Well, it’s the end of today’s training session” you say to the girls “did you like it?”“Oh yeah” says Chame “when’s the next one?”“I had loadsa fun!” says Evrumine enthusiastically, swinging an imaginary axe“It was an excellent investment of time” says Cleya “thank you sir”The others offer similar views; overall it seems they enjoyed themselves, but then today was all about fun, not hard work. They might think differently after a tougher session.

>>40880112>I assume this isn't set into stone and some re-considering is possible when new abilities come up?

“Good choices” you say “good choices, ok, that’s enough for tonight and its late, get some rest, Calluna and Anlanesa, please stay for a few minutes, I want to ask you something.”The girls all file out, except for Calluna and Anlanesa. You address Anlanesa first “wizard really is the best class there is” you jokingly “and I think its great you want to be one, but wouldn’t sorcerer suit your talents better?”“What do you mean sir?” asks Anlanesa “I’m smart and I study hard.” “I know” you say “but today you learned how to fire a blast of cold energy instinctively, that’s very much a sorcerer power, not a wizard one.”“Oh” says Anlanesa, a little disappointed.“But the skills are very similar” you say “you’d be learning the same things, just in a different way.”“Oh yes, well then, I guess sorcerer it is” says Anlanesa with a smile.You turn to Calluna “Bard might not be the best choice for you” you say.Calluna stretches and thrusts her chest out “you don’t think I’ve got what it takes?” she asks slyly. Anlanesa giggles as you keep your eyes firmly in Callunas face.“More that it won’t give you access to all the skills you could learn” you say “if you start training in several different classes, you’ll take longer to get there, but you’ll end up with a much broader array of skills than if you just went full bard.”“Hm,,, yeah I guess” says Calluna “I guess that makes sense, so like, Sorcerer, Rogue and Barbarian.”“Sure” you say, thinking hard “although that might change later on.”The two girls leave, clearly they have much to think about. Groundskeeper Answick bids you goodnight and you head to bed, tired after a long day.
---The next day, your lessons are going well, maybe you can do this teaching thing after all.

>>40880451>>40880452I dunno, I just want to spend time with the girls individually and she came up first in my mind.Not an optimal choice, crunch wise, but I am interested in fluff and I think we could try to teach her some protective spells to help her with the melee/spear combat.
>>40880473>and I think we could try to teach her some protective spellsYou realise it would take several weeks before she can even begin to learn spells?Tutoring one of the girls that actually want to be sorcer or wizards would at least make some sense.
>>40880487Fine, fine.>>40880442Change to the beholder girl, Cleya.
Spending more quality time with leggy elven rangers it is, writing.
Interim discussion: If the chance came up to pick a girl as a *teaching assistant* - basically following you around everywhere, who would you pick, and why? (in-character)
>>40880587Phaysis. She seems to have a lot of enthusiasm and her dream powers could help with extra lessons, like how the fae girl helped Raynia how to bang Shee.
>>40880587Cleya seems to be the only one that would make sense right now. Would allow her to learn about magic while we prepare the classes.Though honestly it doesn't seem like it would work for any of them.
>>40880587I guess...whoever is more excited with it? On the other hand, I think the less intelligent/dedicated girls could benefit from it, a form to shape them up. Like Evrumine, this could teach her patience and maybe raise her smart/charisma through osmose or need.If we only want efficiency, then one of the bookworms, like Cleya.
>>40880587Cleya or Analesa. Both have a solid grasp of magic and are smart enough. Although Analesa being more charismatic may help her teach better.
>>40880587Cleya, since she is the most interested in what we are doing, wizardry.I guess Chame to keep any eye on her?Anlanesa would work for the same reasons Cleya would, though she seems like she gets more easily along with others, so making her follow us around would probably be more detrimental for her. But it would show we aren't doing favoritism with Cleya, I guess.I suppose whoever would show enthusiasm for actually doing it?
>>40880601>and her dream powers could help with extra lessonsPeople usually don't want their dreams invaded.
We still need to pick which Weapon Skill Calluna and Anlanesa actually get.
>>40880695Pally is gonna pick that based on the girls character, is how I understood it.
You head back towards Brand, mulling over how to sort this problem. You could cave to Mr Alderslys demands (bargaining him down on price however) and pay him, although the funds would likely come out of the as-yet-unknown budget for the adventuring club.You could simply accept his counter-offer of a less skilled trainer, grating though that might be.You could ask Mayor Scoper for a copy of the agreement, and then launch a legal challenge, though that would take some time.You could search for the other Ranger reputed to be in the area and/or the Druid, perhaps they will agree to teach your girls?You could try the Headmasters suggestion, and challenge Taynathil to some sort of contest, but you’d have to put something up as a wager, and who knows what an elf might want of you....What is your plan?>Talk to Mr Aldersly about money>Accept Mr Alderslys Trainer>See Mayor Scoper about the agreement>Search for the other Ranger/Druid>Challenge Taynathil (options in next post as to how)>Other (what?)
>>40880694>invadedWe are not going to force anyone to do it. We would talk about this with the students and offer it to the girls willing to go the extra mile. I'm sure some won't like the idea, but others might be interested in it.
>>40880740>Challenge Taynathil (options in next post as to how)Remove elf.
>>40880740>Talk to Mr Aldersly about money
>>40880742Considering there is literally no benefit that we would care about to letting her into another students dreams.No.Also, if someone would actually agree to that I would find that very very worrysome.
>>40880740>See Mayor Scoper about the agreementIf the town isn't going to uphold their agreements due to their opinions they may screw with our club. Maybe citing dangers of having dungeons near the town or more issues with the soulbound.
>>40880740>Talk to Mr Aldersly about moneyActually keeping our side with the ranger wil not only make her give us more time, it will also improve our chances recruiting that druid we need.
>>40880740>Challenge Taynathil (options in next post as to how)Later when we are not busy could we also See Mayor Scoper about the agreement, because fuck that guy for going back on his word.
>>40880740>Challenge Taynathil (options in next post as to how)>See Mayor Scoper about the agreementWe get the copy, then we can tell Taynathil we get the legal challenge underway, but we need her services now. Should improve our chances of convincing her

>>40880740>>40880823>>40880844Supporting these.Get our ranger, and put these guys down a peg
>>40880786>>40880786Phaysis can control dreams. She could manipulate them to reproduce a dungeon. It could be an extra training session this way.>I would find that very very worrysome.Why?
>>40880740>>See Mayor Scoper about the agreement
So grabbing a copy of the contract, *then* talk to the elf, writing.
>>40880867>It could be an extra training session this way.Phaysis ability is not similar to fey dreamwalking.It doesn't work the way you imagine it to work, the dreams are still regular dreams.>>40880867>Why?Because letting someone fuck with your dreams and invade your mind is not very healthy behaviour.
You decide to get a copy of the contract anyway. People should follow the rules of the law, your time amongst the dwarves has left you with a strong respect for such things.And, maybe showing that you’re willing to help will convince Taynathil to accept the terms of your challenge, or demand something less onerous from you if you lose.You head to the mayors house, but find his wife at home. She is welcoming and polite, and locates a copy of the agreement for you, after you give her your word that you’ll return it once you have no need of it.You have a quick read through of the agreement: it seems fairly simple. It guarantees that there will be no logging or cutting of trees in the western forest further than a distance of eight thousand feet from the towns well, though it allows for the collection of dead wood. It lists fines and punishments for those caught breaking the law, as well as allowing the druids circle to release the town from its obligation.It doesn’t specify what the town gained from the agreement though, which is odd.Finally it declares itself as an agreement under the laws of Albia.You roll it back up and put it in your bag, as you head into the forest. It’s not long before you hear a rumbling behind you. Turning around there’s that huge bear again.You simply stare it down, in no mood for games “I’m trying to help” you tell the bear “now where’s your owner?”“I don’t own Amluka” says an elven voice from above you “we just work together, what do you want, wizard?”You look up, crouched on a tree-branch overhead is Taynathil, her long flowing green cloak allowing you to see nothing interesting, despite standing directly beneath her.You try politeness first “I’ve obtained a copy of the agreement” you say “the mayor really should be fining Mr Aldersly until he stops logging.”“So go and tell them” says Taynathil, looking down at you.“I’m planning on taking them to court” you say “and let the law deal with lawbreakers.”
“Good luck” she says sardonically “mans laws exist to protect man, no one else.”“I need you to train my girls now” you say “won’t you help me?”She snorts “when the logging stops, then I’ll help you, wizard, until then, stay out of the forest; Amluka is always hungry.”“Or” you say “maybe I should find another trainer, I’m going to court because I respect the law, whether you help me or not. Maybe I’ve got the wrong ranger; maybe you just don’t have the right level of skills my girls need.”She narrows her eyes at you “You’re treading on dangerous ground wizard.”“Before I take you on” you say “you need to prove your skills, I challenge you to a contest. If I win, you agree to start training my girls immediately”Taynathil raises an eyebrow at you “and if I win?”“What do you want?” you askShe gives a mocking laugh “from you, nothing, but perhaps you can learn a lesson, I know how much you wizards cling to your unnatural power: if I win, you don’t use any magic, for 3 months.”You try not to show how much that shocks you, 3 months! That’s too much. If she wants that as the stakes, you’ll ask for more from her, or maybe offer to not use magic for a shorter time frame, or with a caveat, like except in defence of your life or another’s, or when training your girls. Privately you think that you wouldn’t stick to that agreement if your life, or the life of one of your students, was in danger anyway.

“I might need to use my magic in defence of my own life, or my students lives” you say reasonably “and how can I teach without using magic? I agree to the three months, with exceptions for teaching or defending myself and others.”Taynathil shrugs, as if she doesn’t really care.“And” you add “if you fail, you join the club as a full-time assistant and healer, not just as a trainer.”Taynathil jumps down to the ground, just inches away from you, you hold your ground.She looms over you and whispers “fine, what did you have in mind, wizard?”You can feel her breath on your face, and her almond-shaped eyes are just inches from yours, giving you a look of utter contempt.You realise you forgot to think of something you can challenge her at that she’ll be good at, but you’re better at.Then a rather treacherous thought occurs: the girls can help you with this. For example if you picked a footrace through the forest. You could hide near the finish-line, whilst Chame pretends to be you at the starting line.You could also pit your abjuration magic against...anything she’s got, though she might not agree. Say, cast your spells and let the bear attack you, if it draws blood before a time limit, you lose.You could also have one of the girls go up against her, in some fashion.

>>40882151>What work is never finished?AutobiographyYou know, this might actually mean something if you would pick a actually hard riddle not everyone has already heard.
>>40882144Sorry, I didn't mean to.If it consoles you, I wanted the bear attack.
>>40882156This keeps getting better.
>>40882156It's perfect, now just make it black and slightly bigger.
>>40882155About doing something where the best option is a 50/50 shot at failure? I'll be exactly as mad as I want.Also, unless I'm miscounting, even all of the votes for one of the girls to do something are only tying with riddles, and *before* the vote extension, bear attack was tied.So there is no interpretation in which doing something with the girls won.
It doesn’t have to be you that bests her; one of the girls, or perhaps a group of them, could do so just as well.Phaysis could race her over an open field, Nevyn could best her in a game of hide and seek, as could Chame. Well, maybe at any rate, Taynathil is supposedly a skilled ranger, she might find them anyway.What do you suggest as a contest?>She picks the challenge, you pick the girl>Race (Phaysis)>Hide and seek (who?)>Other contest (what? who?)riddles was half-written, but rules are rulesAnd she wouldn't have agreed to riddles anyway
>>40882207>Calluna challenges her to riddlesI hope you can think in twelve dimensions.
>>40882207>She picks the challenge, you pick the girlI bet bear attack woudl have worked...>>40882219Or this, I would take this too
>>40882207>Race (Phaysis)Open plain
>>40882219>>Other contest (what? who?)Minotaur Girl wrestles Bear
>>40882207>Race (Phaysis)>Open field, or if there is an lake, place a 2 flags on the opposite side and first one to bring a flag back wins
>>40882247The bear is stronger.
>>40882207>Hide and seek (who?)Chame.
>>40882207>Race (Phaysis)>Make them run for a flag, the first to bring it back wins. Then put the flag on the opposite side of a river/lake
>>40882171>Implying there is a riddle that can't be solved by google
>>40882219That can't work. What is true for one is false tot he other. Riddles need to be true for everyone involved.>>40882207>Open field, or if there is an lake, place a 2 flags on the opposite side and first one to bring a flag back wins
>>40882207>>40882270thisShe might still beat her on open field
I like how we're relying on an athletics check to win the day against a person who has athletics as a class skill.
Race for the flag, with a lake in the middle it is
>>40882334Now make the tip red. Maybe also engorged and heavy.
>>40882345No, we are relying on Phaysis being able to run over water and she can't.
>>40882334What >>40882369 said
>>40882345I'm also relying on the fact that she probably can't out run a horse.
>>40882345It won't be a plain athletics check. Just alone becuase it makes no actual in-story sense.Phaysis has a agility penalty in Centaur form, which would mean by that logic she would need to become slower by becoming a horse.Thats just dumb.
>>40882345Running isn't a athletics check, actually.
>>40882405To be realistic, I expect her to cheat too.So its not necessarily a automatic victory.
>>40882405Chame can hide on the horse body and when they hit the lake she shape shifts her way across and back with the flag. Our hope can be we get enough of a head start on the open stretch
Are we going to aware Phaysis credits for this?Are we going to keep track of their credits, at all? We already deducted some from a couple of students.
>>40882485Award, not aware
>>40882477Stop trying to shoehorn Chame in.
>>40882485Yes phaysis get's credits for this.
>>40882485>Are we going to award Phaysis credits for this?Definitly.>>40882485>Are we going to keep track of their credits, at all?Not in minituae, ut we should keep them in mind. I don't think pally expects us to make a custom for it everytime or never give any otherwise.I expect we will give Chame and Evrumine(together with the rest of the club) at the latest their credits after the dungeon.
>>40882477>and when they hit the lake she shape shifts her way acrossOr Phaysis just keeps running.
>>40882535Now give the orbs two horns each and put smaller orbs hovering over them.
>>40882555what kind of fucked up staff do you have?
>>40882405>Inb4 secretly a monk>>40882406Athletics isn't necessarily governed by Agility (I don't think we've ever actually made an Athletics check), but it would probably lower the DC because horse if it was.>>40882440It probably is if you're trying to beat a time limit or another person in a competition.
“Well?” she asks, you’ve spent a while thinking this over.“How about a race” you say “two flags, whoever brings the flag back to the finish line first wins.”She gives you a suspicious look “I know about teleportation spells wizard” she says “I’m not stupid.”“Oh I wouldn’t race” you say “I’m a terrible runner, no, it would be one of my students instead.”“Same problem” she says.“This girl can’t teleport” you say “and this would be a race between just the two of you – no outside interference, but other than that, you can each use whatever you like.”She thinks about this “And no teleporting or flying flags, or illusionary ones.”“Of course not” you say, trying to sound offended “this is a race, speed against speed, one side of the lake to another.”“Aha!” she says “you said *race* not *footrace* - so your girl is some sort of mer-girl, that’s your trick, fine, I agree, you said we can use whatever we like. There’s a lake up in the valley” she points “the fish there get pretty big, I’ll tell them not to eat your girl, just scare her off, deal, wizard, when?”“This evening” you suggest, it’ll give you a chance to explain the situation to Phaysis.“Enjoy life without your magic, wizard” she says, striding off into the forest. The bear yawns and turns to follow her.Right, now you just need to explain to Phaysis why she has to race her new trainer in order to well, get her to train her.---
>>40882582>Athletics isn't necessarily governed by AgilityYou can absolutely bet it is.>>40882582>It probably is if you're trying to beat a time limit or another person in a competition.Nope. Speed is decided by Base Speed, which is a different stat.Now if we talk about additional challenges in the race, like if we were actually running through the forest and had to evade roots and such, that would be athletics.
And thread over. Thanks for playing. Next thread is expected to be on Friday, but please check twitter.I’ll hang around for Q&AFirst topic: XPFor simplicity I’ve been using 1XP (MC) = 5XP (club) because the club splits theirs, between 7 girls so far, but probably more in the future.I could track them entirely separately, use a smaller multiplier (x2, x3) or reduce the XP the MC gets, to slow things down.What are your preferences?XP for this thread delayed, for reasons. All feedback welcome.I love the staff btw, very funnyIf you have requests for more stuff you wanna see, let me know.
>>40882607>What are your preferences?I'm okay with the 1:5 split it works fine.The issue was just getting batches of XP too often would have led to power inflation like in the other quests.Thanks for the thread. Hope we get to the dungeon soon.
>>40882589I would have made the correction that the race would not allow swimming
>>40882589>“Aha!” she says “you said *race* not *footrace*What would she have done if we had send someone with wings?We can still ask Janrael
>>40882651I like this idea.
>>40882633She might have refused at that pointShe knows you go to a school for unusual girls, she also believes she can beat any young girl in a standard race.Saying no swimming or no mer-girl, would have gotten her thinking, and centaur might've been her next thought, or flight.
>>40882607Thanks for running.Aside from the XP amount, I hope todays way of spending it was a exception, because while I enjoy the sperg, it would probably be better for the quests pacing and for the theme, if we have only indirect influence on what exactly the XP are being spend on.
>>40882664I see.Well, great thread pally! Thanks for running and I see you on friday!
>>40882664Then we could've said no centaur and no flight.And then have Phaysis turn into her Equine form.
>>40882702Why would we deliberatly help her narrow down our trick?Thats just dumb and would serve no purpose.
>>40882675I plan for future XP use to be handled by myself and Autism Anon, rather than the players as a whole. Today the vote was no specific training, giving neither of us any idea what players wanted the girls to learn.I plan to allocate XP on a class and race basis depending on what I see the girls preferences as.Players (via the MC) can still try to get girls to learn specific abilities if they want.Be warned: I build bland all-rounders though.
>>40882731>Be warned: I build bland all-rounders though.I assume we will have the option to convince the girls to specialise into certain things?
>>40882731I expected you to do it alone. Yes, more work, but AA is too much of a minmaxer to reflect the growth of young teens. I expect them to randomly try various things, even if they have a preferred class, as they try things out and are momentarily impressed with something new/different.
>>40882773>I expect them to randomly try various things, even if they have a preferred class, as they try things out and are momentarily impressed with something new/different.That doesn't make a lot of sense in the context of the story.Trying a few things here and there doesn't need to be reflected in the stats. And since their training runs over the Adventurer club, it will naturally be rather more focused, as normal for athletes.Some might try different things, some might not, but that will be a matter in the story.
>>40882773>to reflect the growth of young teens. I expect them to randomly try various thingsMost teens don't do a lot of different things.Especially not to such an extent as wouldn't already be covered by how broad the skills are.

This is gonna be good. Thanks for the thread OP!
does process of soulbonding is harmful to demons and stuff?
>>40883226Generally, yes.They can be recovered intact, but might have side-effects
>>40883210In a later thread we might vote on girls outfits for dungeoneering>Sexy>Practical>Girls choosesomething like that
>>40883573Please not.Really,>sexyHow does that even make sense?Why wouldn't they wear adventuering gear and armor?Why would the Headmaster accept us being a creepy sleazebag like that?
>>40883630Because your team is a bunch of young girls, and will want their outfits to look good
>>40883573Yeah, that totally won't end up in butthurt and shitposting.Won't we get to give them real gear though? I thought that our budget would go towards that?
>>40883672There is a difference between>looking goodand>sexyAlso, athletes usually want practical uniforms. Those may or may not end up being sexy, by way of being worn by attractive young girls, but thats not the point.Picking specifically sexy outffits for girls mostly 14 and younger is pretty damn creepy.
>>40883673>Won't we get to give them real gear though? I thought that our budget would go towards that?It likely will, but left to their own devices they will customise it
>>40883729>but left to their own devices they will customise itAs long as it doesn't compromise the actual protective value of the gear, how would that be even our choice then?Except to discourage it maybe.
>>40883573>>40883630Probably tradition. Adventurers dress sexily all the time.Besides, magic can make up for exposed skin. The outfits are purely aesthetics.
>>40883729I don't see why practical and the other ones are seperate options then?Clearly it should always be practical and can be whatever else secondary.There is no reason for it not to be practical.
>>40883716It's not creepy, it's empowering.
>>40883729You know.If some of the young girls in your quests are oddly "precocious", I chalk that up to, sometimes that happens, like with Chesi and similar.But its getting to the point where all of them are all the time. And thats not really interesting character quirks anymore when all of them behave the same unusual way.
>>40883843Thanks for the feedback Anon, I'll think about how I plan to portray the girls from here on, and how to make them distinct.
>>40883843Anon, please. We haven't even met all of them yet. And consider that peer pressure is a strong thing, it's specially true about women.
>>40883843All girls want to be pretty, somehow. Or rather, want to be called pretty; many will do whatever they need for it.
>>40883821No, its really not. If some of the girls choose to sex up their uniform because thats their character, like Chame, thats just characters having personality.When you start trying to tell me all of the children want to be sexy, thats when it gets into the weird territory that detracts from personality.Most of the girls we have right now are children, you can start talking about the constant "muh lewds" with the 16+ girls. As obnoxious as it might be at least it makes some sense.>>40883896>We haven't even met all of them yet.How is that even relevant to the point?>And consider that peer pressure is a strong thingThat doesnt even make any sense. You can't juust throw out words and expect it to convince people.>>40883935>All girls want to be pretty, somehow.Thats a pretty big difference between wanting to be pretty and wanting to emphasize ones sexual attributes. A really big one.
>>40883935Pretty is distinct from sexy, and there are a lot of ways to be attractive without wanting to be sexually appealing.
>>40883843Customization doesn't mean they will all turn it into stripper outfits, anon.>>40883949>A really big one.It's actually smaller than you think.
>>40883967>Customization doesn't mean they will all turn it into stripper outfits, anon.We were talking about the specifically "sexy" custimisation. Or rather, about the option for the MC to encourage "sexy" custimisation for the students.>>40883967>It's actually smaller than you think.No, its not. There is lots of ways to be more attractive/beautiful/pretty without doing that. Which is what most girls of the age 13-14 are concerned with.
>>40883949>How is that even relevant to the point?It's relevant in the same way that >>40883843says ALL the girls are acting the SAME way, when we haven't even seen all of the girls yet.
>>40883993Yes, it is. I don't know in what world you live in, but sexuality is a big part of looking pretty nowadays. It overlaps so much, it's almost the same thing.
>>40884123Notot sure what sort of world you live in where sexy is the average 13 year olds idea of being beautiful. Let alone tbeir only idea.
>>40884069>says ALL the girls are acting the SAME wayObviously he's talking about the girls we met.And he said "its getting to the point", meaning he is pointing out a developing problem before its fully realised.I admit, I found it weird too when Calluna all of sudden went "Aren't my tits nice enough", after she had been rather shy about it before. It makes no sense and makes the characters lose their individual voice.If 'some' girls are like this, its a character trait. When it becomes a universal thing, then there better be a good reason for it.And we are not in Oreia anymore.So unless Pally intends to make the girls love life and trying to seduce their onee-samas a part of the quest to explain why they make such a big deal out of it all the time, its simply out of place.
>>40883993Were you raised in a monastery Anon?>13-14 years
>>40884194>Were you raised in a monastery Anon?No, I just have a lot of younger siblings and have a pretty good idea about what they are like.In difference to the average anon, who has apparently read too many doujins about lewd lolis to realise most girls that age dont act that way in reality most of the time.
>>40884182>So unless Pally intends to make the girls love life and trying to seduce their onee-samas a part of the questI would very much hope he does.I was promised PoV switches.
>>40884215Hmm. Must be a cultural thing. Maybe humans mature slower where you live.>>40884235Please no.
Man, this derailed hard from my original point.I don't give a shit if the girls try to make their adventurer gear better looking in whatever way Pally fancies, as long as it doesn't put them at risk.I was just saying that Salazzar putting them into sexy outfits is fucking dumb. And it is.Beyond that, I don't give a shit how lewd Pally makes his lolis.
>>40884181In world where such thing happens and is rather common around here. 13-14 is the age where the girls are all looking for boyfriends and partying. My own sister went to clubs with her circle of friends.>>40884215Your household is a tame one. Not many like yours around here.But that changes little. I am done arguing with an an arrogant prick like you.
>>40884277>Please no.> Not wantong to be part of our students growing upWhat a horrible thing to say, anon.
>>40884318>Wanting to fuck our students.That's what he was saying no to.
>>40884277>Please no.Please yes.>>40884290>13-14 is the age where the girls are all looking for boyfriends and partying. My own sister went to clubs with her circle of friends.Different anon, but, yeah, girls making themselves sexy when they want o sexually appeal to someone makes sense, and is a thing.Thats wholly different from trying to be sexy all the time in stuations when they aren't trying to sexually appeal to someone.And also its assuming all girls have the same idea of how to appeal to someone.Which is fairly silly.
>>40884333It's student/student thing.
>>40884333>That's what he was saying no to.No it wasn't. Fucking our students wouldn't take PoV switches.
I forgot that I drew staff at big resolution
>>40884337everyone has their idea of sexy. But keep in mind that standards of beauty/sexy exist and it's not surprising for masses of people to have the same idea.
>>40884341>>40884351Still we'd be playing one fucking the other. Sooooooooo. Yeah
>>40884290>In world where such thing happens>Such things happens=/= all girls act this way all the time
There will be no MC fucking the students, and the sexy adventurers outfits was mostly a joke.I am listening to comments and taking note.
>>40884373Don't ignore the >and is rather common around here.>>40884372Students can romance students. They just need to be discreet about it.
>>40884378>jokeDon't do that again. Either go full fanservice or don't tease us with it.
>>40884372>Still we'd be playing one fucking the other.Pally is not going to make this a ERP quest, as surprising as that might be considering his actions sometimes.I was mostly joking trying to lighten the mood.Anyway.I'm pretty sure most here can agree that Salazzar putting the students into sexy outfits would be dumb. So there is nothing to argue about. And the others will have to trust Pally to write his characters decent.Even if the complaint of Pallys characters universally leaning to the promiscous for no particular reasons, is definitly true.But anyone who is bothered by that, probably should stop following because that has always been the case and won't change here.
>>40884418>Anons>Subtle Pick oneAnosn are about as subtle about Yuri as a raging SJW lesbian female with short cut a hair and a mustache.>>40884378Yeah anons can't take joke like that. Especially anons like>>40884434>>40884456Fair enough.
>>40884365I really suck at pixels
>>40884456hey, if they come up with it, I don't see why not.
>>40884468We can play subtle, when it's needed for lewds.
>>40884514Looking back, Unless Pally edits the stupid shit anons want out, not really. Most definitely not after the fact either.
>>40884468I'm not sure why you talk about anon subtlety?We don't control the girls anyway, so its Pallys business how much they fuck.And I fully expect that sort of thig to come up, just alone because its part of dealing with raising a bunch of girls.There are likely going to be jealousies and romance stuff going on with them.I expect at least one will have a crush on Salazzar at some point which we will have to find a way to let down gently, just because its such a horrible chlichee it basically has to happen. And makes sense, psychologically>>40884489Because we are responsible for it.
>>40884484That staff screams "Overcompensating", its perfect.
>>40884550>I'm not sure why you talk about anon subtlety?>We don't control the girls anyway, so its Pallys business how much they fuck.They were talking about seducing a girl when perspective shifted to one for the other girls. Anons would not be subtle about it. Anons are never subtle about it, and it would lead to massive shitstorm or explusion.
>>40884456>I'm pretty sure most here can agree that Salazzar putting the students into sexy outfits would be dumb. So there is nothing to argue about.>And the others will have to trust Pally to write his characters decent.Agreed.>spoilerwell that seems a bit exaggeration resulting from justifiably slutty succubi from previous quest and from some anons being extremely sensitive at even slightest hints of characters showing sexuality. I don't get the feeling that girls in this quest are all that lewd or flirty.As far as overload of /u/ in previous quests is concerned, that one is 100% players' fault.
>>40884614>They were talking about seducing a girl when perspective shifted to one for the other girls.No they weren't. I was making a joke in reference to what we had talked about in the last PoJ thread in regards to if shipping the students with eachother is okay.Don't be dumb.>>40884614>and it would lead to massive shitstorm or explusionWhat the hell are you imagining here? How would it lead to expulsion?You are incredibly inflating this way out of proportion.
>>40884659>No they weren't. I was making a joke in reference to what we had talked about in the last PoJ thread in regards to if shipping the students with eachother is okay. Don't be dumb.You're expecting everyone in this quest to have play POJ. It did not looks or sound like a joke.>What the hell are you imagining here? How would it lead to expulsion?Breaking the rules, blatantly breaking them at that since anons are not subtle. Pretty sure that'd be punished harder than a few credit losses. Especially since anons would keep going because anons are horny idiots.
>>40884649>As far as overload of /u/How so? All of the girls Sireyi is /u/ with came onto Sireyi with lewds first, and weren't exactly sparse with it. So it was definitly 100% Pally.Hell, most of the time the players voted against taking the characters offers. So your claim seems pretty unsubstantile to me, or you're just butthurt about it being /u/ rather than het.Which is incredibly hypocritical ina ddition to being dumb.>>40884649>resulting from justifiably slutty succubiWell yeah, he put them in there.I didn't mind it in those quests either, but it was undeniably there. Regardless of if it made snse or not, which isn't a discussion I care about.
>>40884696>Breaking the rules, blatantly breaking them at thatWhat rules would be broken there?You think there are rules forbidding the students from having sex with eachother? Are you serious?You think they put several undred girls aged 13-18 into a school,. lots of them being part-succubus, isolate them from others, and then think they won't fuck?
>>40884722>You think there are rules forbidding the students from having sex with eachother?Officially there are, but the teachers turn a blind eye unless it gets out of hand.
So do we actually look like this>>40884484or do we wear something less manly?
>>40884722>You think there are rules forbidding the students from having sex with eachother? Are you serious?Considering that set up in every institution school across most developed countries yes.>You think they put several hundred girls aged 13-18 into a school,. lots of them being part-succubus, isolate them from others, and then think they won't fuck?The probably do, but don't care if the students are subtle about it. Anons if they play one of the female pcs will not be subtle about it. At all. So Unless Pally railroads it for the character to use common sense, yeah there's going to be punishment involved. Probably for starting a yuri orgy in the middle of the common room knowing most anons.
>>40884649>and from some anons being extremely sensitive at even slightest hints of characters showing sexualityI don't remember that being a thing, aside from really really early in PoJ, but even that is only tengentially related.People got annoyed fast when other voters started obsessing about lewds and shit, but I don't remember much issues with the behaviour of the characters as written by Pally.
>>40884800Chesi is an example. Anything regarding sexuality in a not chaste manner as well.
>>40884795>Anons if they play one of the female pcs will not be subtle about it. At all.>Probably for starting a yuri orgy in the middle of the common room knowing most anons.You're reminding me of the haremfag from PRQ, your claim is about as silly and bereft of founding in reality.>>40884831>Chesi is an example.When were people ever mad about Chesi being lewd? Ever?I mostly remember them being pretty enthusiastic about that.
>>40884703>How so? All of the girls Sireyi is /u/ with came onto Sireyi with lewds first, and weren't exactly sparse with it. So it was definitly 100% Pally.Not really, there was only one female character that was openly flirtatious without also being demonblooded and that was Jal. Maybe Isla would count too, if you squinted hard enough. In both cases it was players' choice to pursue that line rather than shoot it down.Also nice projecting.
>>40884831Care to name a actual example? No one was ever bothered by Chesi being lewd.
>>40884869>You're reminding me of the haremfag from PRQ, your claim is about as silly and bereft of founding in reality.Anons are not subtle, especially about smut. They never have been. We play a girl trying to seduce another girl or girls we're going to be about as subtle a meteor rain spell. I've seen it every quest featuring smut. So unless Pally railroads us we're going to fuck up.
>>40884877>Maybe Isla would count too, if you squinted hard enough.She literally sneaked into our bed, anon. That does not require much squiting to consider that coming unto someone. Its pretty clear cut.And Sofia directly told Sireyi she would marry her if she could give her a baby.Thent here is of course our planar Twin, who also tried to seduce us several times.
Personally I think the flirting, and yes, the sometimes blatently lewd stuff adds to the quest rather than detracts from it.But I can tone it down if it is disrupting things, or spoiling the quest for players.I like to think I'm flexible in response to player preferences, as difficult as that can be with a group of anons with different tastes and views.
>>40884869>>40884895You forget the one or two anons who go "THEY ARE EIGHT WHAT THE FUCK CHESIS TOP BEING A SUCCUBUS".
>>40884877>In both cases it was players' choice to pursue that line rather than shoot it down.Uh, what? We shot down Jal constantly.Like, all the damn time.You also forget Elahi, we also shot down all the time.>Also nice projecting.What projecting?
>>40884925Tone what down? Things are fine as they are. I didn't see any lewd in the quest so far.
>>40884925Just if you PoV switch please don't let anons turn off the character's brain. Because they will otherwise to get lewds or smut.
>>40884925>Personally I think the flirting, and yes, the sometimes blatently lewd stuff adds to the quest rather than detracts from it.>But I can tone it down if it is disrupting things, or spoiling the quest for players.I don't think anyone minds that. We have all long sicne learned to live with it, and sofar we managed to self-police it to a managable level.Its up to you how much you offer and how much we take you up on it.It made sense enough most of the time.PoJ is about, well, obvious enough.And PRQ was basically a young adult coming of age story.
>>40884969And now we are going to help a lot of girls with their coming of age stories...oh dear.
Hadn't planned of PoV switch until much later, after establishing MC and main NPC personalities
>>40884964Anon, your desperate fear of the evil /u/ bogieman is getting really silly.Players have played the previous two protagonists of Pallys quest significantly less promiscous than they could have.This will not change in this one.
>>40884925Please do. What could be fun in succubutt quest feels too out of place in teenage schoolgirl quest.
>>40884925>But I can tone it down if it is disrupting things, or spoiling the quest for players.Other players reacting to it like repressed little boys is disrupting it for me, thats not your fault Pally. We had this discussion now for the third, time, and sadly we have not become increasingly efficient at it.>>40884986>Hadn't planned of PoV switch until much laterI had assumed we would do them in the dungeons?
>>40884986>after establishing MC and main NPC personalitiesFair enough. Just be warned some most anons won't care about the characterization as long as they can fap.>>40884998>Anon, your desperate fear of the evil /u/ bogieman is getting really silly.I honestly don't care about who rubs or sticks what into someone else's whatever. I just hate horny anons fucking the quest over to fap to smut.>Players have played the previous two protagonists of Pallys quest significantly less promiscous than they could have.But also far closer than they could have been too, and quite frankly sometimes it was a close thing. I've lost my faith in anions a long time ago.>This will not change in this one.Just taking preventative measures.
>>40885053>I had assumed we would do them in the dungeons?Well yes, but that'll be right in the middle of the action 100% of the time, so less chance of interpersonal stuff.
>>40884182Actually, when was Calluna shy about her body, before? The only instance of Caluna being shy, that I can remember, is when we met her, after stopping her from biting/scaring/murdering the MC. But that was a different scene, with a different mood and subject/etc.Her showing off in >>40880401 is very fitting with the situation. People have certain expectations about bards, which has been demonstrated in previous threads and this one. Considering she wanted to be a bard, it doesn't feel out of place.
>>40884939I think that's more the culture clash where sex and sex related stuff is just normal, and Chesi just not understanding that most humans don't live that way.
>>40885062Being a whiny bitch doesn't make your position look good.Yeah sure, we had some trouble before. Seduction/Heisanfaggotry, for example. But even those would have been more annoying, its not like they would have actually made the quest any lewder, despite what some anons might have thought.> I just hate horny anons fucking the quest over to fap to smut.I dislike it just as much, but claiming it has been a huge problem sofar is just plain wrong.We have succesfully self-policed sofar.No harem for Shee, for example, despite Kae basically throwing herself at us.I'm not saying it can't happen, but acting like players will automatically start fucking everything available is just stupid, especially since we could do that as Salazzar too. And the previous quests had all far less fucking around by the protags than Pally had enabled us to. Sometimes to his chagrin I get the feeling.>>40885111>Actually, when was Calluna shy about her body, before?I'm fairly sure he refers to her reaction to Chame teasing her about it. And the whole insecurity thing she has going on with the "prettier" succubus girl.
>>40884939I don't remember that happening. At least not in regards to Chesis behaviour.Example?I remember a few times when people thought Chesis behaviour would mean all kids in paladin school should behave like her, which is very silly because they aren't succubi.
>>40885160>spoilerI won't lie, you are correct.I make no secret of my personal tastes, but equally I dislike pissing off the players, I want everyone to enjoy themselves.impossible as that is with such a diverse group
>>40885173Better and better
>>40885209>I make no secret of my personal tastesSince all of us, you included, should enjoy this, I think you shouldn't have to.You have been traditionally fair with letting us back out of your magical realm when it came up, thats all we can ask for IMO.Especially considering that anons have been, less than gracious to you several times.Especially early in the quests.Was I the only one who was incredibly amused by how people accused Pally in early PRQ of shoving Ashley on us, in exact mirror to people doing the exact same accusation about Isla in PoJ?I found the sheer irony delightful.
>>40885160Chame is a shapeshfter who cheats to have the biggest boobs and then flatshames the other girls, and I'd say that insecurity when around succubi is rather normal, since they are lewd machines. This does not prevent someone from being more self-assured at least until the sources of insecurities come back.But that scene was not about Calluna's self-esteem or any lewd behavior, it was a joke about bards, which the others reacted accordingly to.
>>40885277Thank you anon for your kind words
>>40885209Pally, trust me when I say this. You should magical realm harder.
>>40885296You don't need to explain it to me. I just said what he was probably referring to.I don't give a shit.And I expect any child of Shee and Rainya to be lewd anyway.
Any chance I could get an archive link?
>>40885330>Implying it's Rainya's>Not implying it was the result of a really god masturbation session
>>40885353The brown skin and generally looking like Rainya make it fairly obvious.
>>40885209Pally, run a R-18 version of this quest on anonkun. Everything is welcome there.
>>40885379Twas a joke anon.
>>40885418So you say, its not like self-fertilization would be out of question for Shee.
>>40885417Pally wants to run a adventure story with occasional lewd, not a smut story with some tangential adventure.
>>40885427True, but the comment was still made in jest. As it is it still could be given how Shee shapeshifts.
>>40885456Smut can be secondary and the fanservice can be cranked up to eleven there.
>>40885353>>40885379>>40885427Shee and Rainya were experimenting with Rainyas self-duplication ability + psychic surgery as part of an infiltration/spy mission. Calluna is a shapechanged Rainya duplicate with memory difficulties.This is not the truth
>>40885469>As it is it still could be given how Shee shapeshifts.That would just make me even more sad she didn't come out as a brown skinned red-head.>>40885481Sadly it can't.While I disagree with the panicky anon, he IS right that smut escalates fast in quests and anons will start focusing on it way more than it should have focus on.
>>40885481Look at Killerptu's quests Doesn't work that way. Smut and stupidity escalate fast on anonkun.
>>40885525>Smut and stupidity escalate fast on anonkun.They escalate fast on /tg/ too.Hell, most of that bullshit came from /tg/ to akun.
>>40885498Great way to bring my hype up and then crush it Pally.
>>40885543TG snowballs at a arithmetic rate, Anonkun does so at an exponential rat, due to laxer rules and a higher d/eviant concentration.
>>40885525I dunno who that is, but I will take a look at him now. Thanks, I guess.>>40885501Stablio handles it well, I think, but I suspect it's because of the huge self control in the earlier sessions.
>>40885543I am pretty sure it's other way aroundAlso why would Pally be unable to post lewd on /tg/?Only lewd quests that I know were deleted were pure smut in first place
