You have, at this point, effectively-And literally, you suppose--Decimated the bison creatures.Sheskza is mostly safe, momentarily. Jin is in the air. Your adrenaline is still running full out, and you'd very much like to replace the one-in-ten you've got going at the moment with something more thorough. Like the obliteration of the entire herd. You're aware, of course, that you cannot eat or carry that much. Not easily, anyway. But your blood is up, your sister is hurt, and the line between predatory and protective instincts has vanished under your rather wrathful emotional state. You've already decided that the bull will be dinner. Possibly lunch. Any other outcome is unacceptable. For now, though-You grab another horned monster as it charges you, catching the curled spikes of bone and wrenching them around like a steering wheel.The beast's neck gives out with a crunch, and you toss the thing to the side, a tumbling pile of fur and limbs and hooves. The bull is regaining it's feet, looking for all the world like it's picked a fight with a tornado made of fire and razor blades-An accurate sort of assumption, given Jin's recent penchant for lighting herself on fire, and exploding as she rakes her prey. You glare at it, blood still boiling, hissing and clicking softly in your anger.>Priorities: Get Sheszka out of the lake. Dinner can wait.>Shezka is mostly safe on your new island- Introduce the world to the concept of burgers. Start by grinding up the bull.>Thin out the herd before the thing starts to charge again. >Other (?)

>>41371562>Shezka is mostly safe on your new island- Introduce the world to the concept of burgers. Start by grinding up the bull.Having them charge us while we're holding Shez and less able to defend ourselves won't help. Remove danger; retrieve sister.

I can't wait until we gain 6 levels from killing the Ur-Bison and wiping out the Herd. Let the Butt-Wars begin in earnest!Anvil-Butt the best.Anybody been following SUETHULHU? Did you pass your SAN checks?
>>41371866>that spoilerI... I'm guessing that means we didn't just unlock the eldritch spider evo path...
>>41371965Personally hoping for Heaphastus/Vulcan/Molten Emperess variant of whatever we get. Honestly, the variants makes the whole thing much more complicated.
>>41371965skullbutt a shit
>>41372022I want the variant where we are Nano-machine/Material spiderbutt with the designation of RED STEEL
>>41372022>empressnin pls go and stay go
>>41371993Hmmm. Eldritch Spider, or Scary Top Predator Spider. Tough choice for me personally.
>>41372022 Personally want the scary evo one, because being really really nice and happy and chipper while being able to radiate terror makes me happy on the inside
>>41372031Skeleton detected.Get mad, bonehead.
>>41372060>Lyra's face when when she tells everyone what her evo is then realizes it has royal/queen/empress in it and forgot to omit it in front of Nin.

>>41372089>Nin's reaction when
>>41372067I could get behind that. Just hoping i won't still be at work when the voting begins...
Did I miss the "possible evolutions" discussion?
>>41372220REQM posted a few possible evos, of which some were such we had already unlocked and some not.>Tyrant Arachne, Deinos Arachne, Sovereign Arachne, Grave Lord Arachne, Cinder Arachne
>>41372220We've got names for a few, but no details.Tyrant, Deinos, Sovereign, Grave Lord and Cinder, with others potentially.
>>41372220>>41372245Note, because there was some confusionGrave Lord ArachneIs just the generic Lord evolution slapped on the Grave Arachne, not the advancement of the Grave Arachne. (Which I suspect is Deino Arachne since it sounds the most super-predator like)
>>41372245If I recall, he also stated that those weren't the only options either. There are other names he hasn't revealed yet.
>>41372245>>41372253Deinos makes me think of Deinonychus which means terrible claw.
>>41372275>he also stated that those weren't the only options eitherAlso true. I think he mentioned somewhere how many we had qualified for already, I think 3 but I can't find it anymore.He also said Deino and Tyrant are of those 5 the biggest spiderbutts.>>41372287>Deinos makes me think of Deinonychus which means terrible claw.Deino does mean Terrile/Terrifying.And it makes me think of dino.
>>41371866REQM, please answer my query so, what Evo will increase the size of our skull which rests on our butt? Not to be confused with the butt itself.
>>41372287Pretty sure it simply comes from "deinos":δεινός • (deinós) m, δεινή f, δεινόν n; first/second declension terrible, horrible, fearful, astounding (neuter substantive) danger marvelous, mighty, powerful wondrous, strange able, skillful, clever>>41372253>>41372262So in conclusion they likely come down to:Tyrant: Dominate the shit out of others (probably acquired through the wolves)Deinos: The murdertrain has no breaksSovereign: More traditional leadership evo (probably acquired through our friends)Grave Lord: Lord Evolution, likely focused on skill ranks as opposed to having more innate abilitiesCinder; Burninating the countryside
>>41372370All evolutions come with complimentary cosmetic butt upgrades.
>>41372406>So in conclusion they likely come down to:Thats basically what I had speculated back then too.Really only what exactly Tyrant means in effect is sort of ambigious.Is its ruling through strength/dominance and comes with physical enhancements?Or is it the fear/intimidation based one and comes from our crit indimidate in the river journey.
>>41372425Are any ones with a transformation included actually unlocked?
>>41371993The Spider in Yellow
>>41372442>>41372464A transformation for the skull? For Lyra?I'm not sure what you mean.
>>41372493Evolutions that come with smaller "forms" one can take at will or something.Because I can't help but think cities further away from the forest will be even less Arachne sized than this town was.
>>41372524>Evolutions that come with smaller "forms" one can take at will or something.>Because I can't help but think cities further away from the forest will be even less Arachne sized than this town was.>Wanting to diminish our glorious arachnid shape
>>41372549Shezka can resize herself enough to fit into our buttskull eyesocket without problems.I'd even take a full spider form that we can resize how we want.
>>41372524>>41372549>>41372590I, for one, am against shapechanging shenanigans.That's not our schtick, and quite frankly, I don't want it to be.
>>41372590>Shezka can resize herself enough to fit into our buttskull eyesocket without problems.And Sheszka is a were-best, shapeshifting is kind of her thing.
>>41372590That's contortion, not shapeshifting.
>>41372597I'd agree, with the condition that she might need to shapeshift if her evolutions get bigger. Remember ultra-mega-underground Shelob early on?
Evolution time? Hmmm... lots of good choices. Looking forward to the vote
I will be sad if when we evolve we don't have ranks in the achievement "Carry the team".And hopefully we'll see Jin's evolution today. Calling it now, Cliffhanger.
>>41372652I, for one, am also against being that big.
>>41372524A few have alternate forms rather than actual shapeshifting. But the trade cities are built around catering to anyone and everyone- You don't need to worry about being too big for streets or anything like that.
>>41372667>And hopefully we'll see Jin's evolution today.Jin and Lyra might evolve together if we are lucky.
Worry wars momentarily with anger- That burning urge to have Sheszka in your hands, so you know she's safe, the absolute surety that you can protect her pushes against the writhing stream of fury that has you narrowing your eyes, smoke curling around you as you glare at the animal that dared to attack your friends.The situation seems to even penetrate the monstrous skull of the bull, the beast's own fury tempered by your radiating enmity.You uncurl your hands, chitin creaking gently as it's released from the pressure of your tightened fists, and step towards the bull. The herd is in a full rout now- Bison bellow and flee all around you, though they make a wide berth around you as you head for their leader.Above you, Jin screeches as she dives, the terrifying whistle-noise growing louder as she drops from the sky to rake anything that dares draw nearer to you. Sheszka is making her way towards the shore, a flash frozen bridge courtesy of her own power. The stampede around you is growing, the thundering pound of hooves on the packed earth matching your own tremor-enhanced steps. A bison breaks free of the crowded wave moving around you, throwing its head side to side as it charges, eyes rolling in fear.You catch it, plucking it from the ground, your muscles offering a minor complaint as you heave it over the flow of beasts, the plaintive moo of your victim cut short as it collides with the bull, staggering the giant bison to one side. You hiss a curt warning and charge. You plow through the crowd, casting aside panicking creatures, emerging from the other side of them like a burning goddess of war, bearing down on the object of your rage with a noise dredged up from some fevered nightmare.The bison tries to meet you, horns to your outstretched hands, but you're augmented by magic, by anger, by speed- by the utter certainty that this thing will never again bring harm to those around you. >Fire!>Tooth and Nail!>Break it!>Other (?)

So, we might as well plan what to do after the slaughter is over now, instead of it eating time later.After we've recovered Shez and fussed over her, of course.Since we've apparently slaughtered a couple dozen of these things, and it seems a bit shitty to just leave them to go to waste, I say we make a train.Start with the bull and web its hind legs to the horns of the next biggest. Then the next biggest and so on. Not counting any that we tore apart or something.Then tie a webline to the head of the bull and lash it to the 'horn' of our skullbutt. Then we drag the meat-train back to camp and have everyone stare at us wondering What The Fuck?

>>41373486What about Griffon-eater?
No matter your determination, the bull is still a monstrous bison- In size, ability. In weight and power.It slams into you, head lowered, abandoning its skittish indecision, fighting for its life.You can feel your armour flex under its attack, driving the air from you, your limbs scrabbling a bit as you're pushed back.The furrows you've left behind hiss, stone turning molten, sand and dirt burning away into glass. The creature is starting to to reverse, trying to pull away from you, to charge again and again until it has driven you off-You aren't a bull, or a bison. And you don't fight like that.Your arms wrap around the beast from above, enfolding it as beast you can. It bleats, bellows as your claws dig in, your arms compressing it, muscles finally, truly burning as you hold it against yourself.It tries to toss its head, to break free, but all it can manage is to score your armour, adding to your already considerable collection of dents and rips, a visible patchwork of your fights.With a hiss of protest, you lift the creature. It rises into the air tail first, legs kicking weakly as the blood rushes to its head. Your legs flex gently, your power calls out the earth, stone beneath you hardening, layering over itself. You hiss once more, the sight of your waterlogged wolf reaching shore, her arm hanging at her side all the motivation you need. Your arms tighten, shoulders taut, and you drive the beast face first into the ground. The impact jars the earth itself, cracks horns, pulls another mooing bellow forth, the thump of the impact accompanied by the creak of bone.And again. And again.And again.
>>41373732You stop when the movement stops, dropping a shattered, limp body to the ground, your breathing heavy and laboured, sweat stinging your uppermost eyes, and you step around the body, ignoring the pooling blood to see to your sister.Jin swoops in, alighting on your skull, still covered in the glow of her magic.There are bodies strewn all around, and you leave them where they are as you move to the side of the injured wolf. Who is looking away from you, to a scaly looking tentacle, dragging a carcass back to the water.You stop and stare.>To hell with it. You can share.>Yell at the water monster.

ButWhy are we so defensive of these things?We killed way too many to eat
>>41374426Are you a kid or a squid?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hulVCEEBLxE
>>41374458Maybe we got angry because it's trying to steal something we made an effort to kill. We are also a giant spider and this is all our prey that no one else should take.
>>41374458WE killed itWE decide who get to eat itor in other words >Scavengers fuck off!

>>41374644>2. What is jerkyThat's a good question, what IS jerky? How do you make jerky? Do WE know how to make jerky? Does anyone in the caravan know how to make jerky? Do people in this world call jerky by another name?
>>41374701>>41374644there is someone on the caravan who knows how to make jerky, but the logistic challenge of jerking this many bison ensures many of them will go bad.Unless we succeed in a truly staggering eating challenge.
>>41374701Do you really not know how to make jerky?I thought that was one of things that everyone knew how to make.
>>41374701Jerky is basically dried and smoked meat. But considering the sheer mass of meat here, it would take forever to prepare it all.Better to drag it all back, butcher, cook and eat as much as possible, then get a great iron pot and stew as much meat as possible.
>>41374701>Do WE know how to make jerky? Does anyone in the caravan know how to make jerky?Lyra already ate jerky.
>>41374750Just eat it. All of it. Suddenly unlock a big eater evolution.
>>41374728>Do you really not know how to make jerky?I have never had to dry and smoke any amount of meat because I am City-Scum.But please, do tell the logistics of how to jerk meat so that we can figure out beforehand how to sent up an effective factory-line of jerky.>>41374771Must've forgot that.
>>41374784This is a road you don't want to go down, anon.
>>41374794To make jerky, you just cut thin strips of meat off of basically anything, lay it over something thin and elevated like string or a stick, and stick a fire about two or three feet under it.Sunlight and smoke does all the rest, if you want any spices or something you either lather the meat with it, or put the spices in the fire, the sunlight dries the meat and the smoke either adds or seals in flavor.It would usually take anywhere from a day to two days to be entirely cured in sunlight.
Ignoring the fact that your arms feel sort of like limp noodles, you manage to pull one up into the air, shaking it in a sedate imitation of anger as you voice your objections at the be-tentacled thief."Hey! HEY! THAT IS MINE, YES! I KILLED IT!"Sheszka looks at you like you've finally lost it- which, to be honest, only makes you question her sanity. As far as your activities spider go, shouting at strange giant monsters barely registered.Huh.Now that you think about it, you're actually more concerned about your complete lack of concern.You can probably excuse half of it with simple emotional burnout- Worrying about people takes a lot out of you. And the rest...You guess giant monsters just don't register any more.You file away that revelation to consider later. Maybe when you're rested and no longer feeling like you've been stretched thin.The tentacle coils up and away from the bison, twisting over itself in some semblance of... and apology?You blink slowly. And then a thick, burbling sort of voice emerges from the lake."Ahhhhh- My apologies. I haaad thought that one would be of noooo concern."You tilt your head to the side, make note of your continued lack of concern or surprise, and respond. "That is- It is not the number, yes? There are more than enough. You should ask first. It is polite."The voice- a male voice, as far as you can tell- in an underwater, giant monster sort of way- answers with a gurgling chuckle. "I seeee. Usually there is moooore screaming."
>>41374894oh, it's asking first.Well, that's fine then.
>>41374894The tentacle flips upwards, curling, a gesture reminiscent of an open hand, adding to the surreal nature of the whole scene."Theeeeen- May I?"You wave towards the lake. "Go ahead, yes.""Mmmmmhm."More tentacles join the first, and a few corpses are dragged into the water, vanishing below the surface, a single warbling "Thaaaank you" all the evidence that they were ever there.And all the blood, you suppose.>Check on wolf!>You aren't a medic.

>>41375224From the last thread>You're a bit more determined, more able than that.>The earth responds, a bridge pushing out, arching towards her, even as the water of the lake surges up and out, and platform racing from below, lifting her gently from the frothing water.

You nod once to the now still lake.Maybe you just won't ever swim again?If something like that likes here, then the ocean...Or maybe things like crocodiles in the sewers are a bit more real life, here.You push it to the back of your mind. There's things that actually require your attention. Namely, one wolf, specifically, Sheszka. You skitter the last few steps to her side, one hand to her head, another to her shoulder. She sighs immediately, leaning into you, eyes downcast.Her arm is- Well, it isn't the right colour. But there's no bone poking out, thankfully. A simple break, then?You frown slightly, lips drawn and thin.You do not, in fact, know the difference between a simple break and... whatever other kinds of breaks there are."Are you okay?"The wolf looks up, her face a little pale, eyes still unwilling to meet yours."Aside from the arm, yes? You are not hurt anywhere else?"She shakes her head."I am sorry. Lyra."You're fairly certain you know what's coming."I failed. I was- I wasn't-"You scoop her up. Giant or not, you can still hold her. Even if your arms are a little strained right now."Shush, you. You were cocky, yes? You ran in without thinking.""... Mm.""Then learn from it. You are still alive. You didn't fail anyone."You ruffle her hair gently, reaching up and past her sodden bangs to scratch at her ears."Yes, alpha."You sigh."Stop that. Someone will look at you back at the caravan, yes."The trip back took less time than organizing the bison in a way you could manage. At the end, you wound up hauling a train of the things back to the road, then alongside it- Till you reached the caravan. And then, of course, comes all the explaining."This is hunting?""Yes?"
>>41376186Kenzington has his arms over his chest. He did let you take Sheszka to Nin and the other healers, and Jin just sort of escaped, but you're stuck here owning up to everything, now.Technically, Ezzy is there. But she's sleeping, so it doesn't count."In what way is this sorta thing hunting?""...I will be eating them?""This many.""I got a bit angry, yes? When Sheszka got hurt."He sighs, rubbing at his temples."People're already worried about the earthquakes. Bloody-""That was probably me.""What.""Yes.""I- just. Okay.">Go see wolf.>Cook.

>>41376249Seconding the Jerky.
I can't see why she would have a dramatic reaction to giant monsters any more.How many has she met now? How many of them did she kill and eat?Giant monsters aren't news in and of themselves.
A bit of reflection and a whole lot of cooking bison.Writing!

>>41376504But then he remembers that Lyra killed and ate a fucking Gryphon and acted as a complete deterrent to a very large group of bandits just by existing in the same general area.
I now give you this mental image.Lyra in a singed and flour-caked apron with a tray of meat-shakes and some burnt bread.
>>41376716She can both bake bread in clay ovens, and cook meat on stone slabs.If she could curtail her own hunger she could be a very successful chef.
>>41376753Still, the image of her as she is trying to cook is just humorous.and kind of cute
>>41376414A brief question: > WHY IN THE HELL ISN'T NIN BEING INVOLVED? She's kind of our healer/in need of things to do. Also, we might want to talk to giant octopus bro. Apparently we know speak octopus. This is news.

Apologies. The mention of Nin was just so minor that I ended up skipping over those two words. Was expecting something more substantive, like reactions from the tiny fluffy one rather than a blanket inclusion.
I MADE IT TO ONE OF THESE! YES!
>>41377527Tell me about it. I missed the last 2 because of scheduling.Also, we're on nearing-300-post semi hush right now.
You spend the next bit alongside the wagons, hauling your dinner-And likely, everyone else' dinner as well. As the light dims, tents are pitched, the wagons drawn into a circle. Fires are set up- some for cooking, some for light and warmth. The watch goes out, posted to the edge of the tents, sitting and waiting and hoping there'll be no trouble. Sheszka, Nin, Jin- They all turn up eventually, the owl swooping in to be fed before her shift, Nin accompanying the now sling-bound wolf. And you work quietly, your thoughts far too loud. Some bison is set aside. A burger would be nice. But you'll need to grind up the meat. And cheese. Cheese is important. And bread. You could probably cook bread. Given ingredients. And instructions. And an oven with good airflow and an even temperature. For now, though-For now, everyone gets steaks. A rather vast metal plate lies before you, suspended over a pair of rocks, a fire billowing merrily beneath it. Above it, fat and juices spit and trickle everywhere, the sizzle of cooking beef bringing half the camp to wait just outside your firelight. You focus as you cook, handing out thick, seared slabs of steak, muttered thanks slowly being accompanied by a growing sound of chatter and cheer.For you, though...Well, there's the matter with the lake monster, to start. When did it get to the point where you can encounter giant monsters without blinking? Even talking ones?You would think that you would start at that, usually? Probably?"What are you worrying about?""Huh?"You blink slowly, another steak poised over the grill. Nin is at your side, watching you with her head perched on her hands, Sheszka snoring gently beside her, the wolf curled around her own arm to protect it."I said, what are you worrying about?"You pause a moment."Was- Was all that out loud?""Out quiet, mostly.""Ah."
>>41377561You repress the urge to blush."Then- You know what I am worrying about, yes?""I don't understand why, though?""Why not?""Lyra- You know you are a giant monster, right?""What?""You- You are a giant monster.""Wha- I am not that big, yes?""What about compared to me? To a human? Ezzy?""Eh- I mean, that is not-""It is absolutely the same.""Maybe.""Mhm." Is all the response she gives to that."Anyway, that doesn't explain why I'm not afraid of the other ones, yes? The ones bigger than me!""How many 'giant monsters' have you hunted now?""Uh-""Well?""A few?""A lot.""Okay."This is one of those arguments you can't win, isn't it? You have a feeling that dissuading Nin isn't going to happen."So, why would you be afraid of them?""Er.""You hunt and eat them."You make to scratch your head, but you catch yourself at the last second. You don't want the blood and fat and grease in your hair. "And-""Okay, yes?""Okay?"She turns to face you, antennae bouncing as she looks you in the eyes."I understand, yes? So... thank you.""Mhm. You can talk to me, okay? Don't worry about things by yourself.""I'll- I'll keep it in mind.""I can be your advisor as well as your herald, and-"You had a headache by the time you dragged her off to bed.

>>41377641Oh boy, here we go.
______________________________________________________________YOU HAVE EXCEEDED THE MINIMUM REQUIRED LEVELRANK UP IS NOW POSSIBLEThis is new.The voice's echo fades in your head, your dream, but-Hm.You're in a darkened room. Sort of. You can't feel any floor. And it doesn't seem enclosed, either. A darkened space, maybe? But magical darkness, as you also can't see anything at all past your own nose. You call up a burst of flame, using your hand like a torch- And all it really does is impress you with the sheer oppressiveness of the dark surrounding you. You can see your hand, limned in fire.And nothing else. Wait.No, there is something...You squint, but that doesn't offer you any real improvements to your vision. Beyond where you're standing- or floating, or whatever- There's six points of light. Pinpricks in the infinite shadows of this place, but still-You make your way closer, halting a few times- Moving feels weird for some reason. Off. You start and stop a few times, trying to put your finger on it when it finally hits you, sending a chill down your spine-It feels like you're moving with two legs again. And eight. At the same time. A phantom response, a ghostly, half-second late sensation of knees and ankles and feet, toes splaying against the ground and pushing off. You shiver again, suddenly aware of how soft your hands feel, the distinct sensation of two sets of eyes blinking, of your tongue across your teeth and your fangs simultaneously. You try to shrug it off, moving towards the lights, each a static, shimmering point in the well of darkness around you.You reach the first, and your hand moves forwards, fingers outstretched towards it, the twitch of static pulsing through you as you touch it.There's a brilliant moment of whiteness in your head, as everything is pushed aside- your twinned sensations, your feelings, all your vague worries and confusion-
This is probably going to be our last evo for a while isn't it? The next will be like a whole 2-3 arcs away.
>>41377641>gets out note taking pen.
>>41377725>We are not a mage, Hopefully anons understand that and don't be stupidI meant more the ones like Cinder Arachne and such. Not directly "mage evolution"
>>41377709>solidify specialisationSo we tankbutt now, right? Since we always go in hard and fight for our friends?
>>41377750We've been tankbutt since we turned red and got a skull.
>>41377731And it's replaced by heat. By the quick flaring burn of fire, by strength, the smouldering power of your own form incomparable to what you had even as an arachne. Though all is still darkness around you, there's the sensation of submissiveness from the shadows. As though they were bowing. And it feels... it feels right. As though they should bow. To your strength, to you. You yell, and your voice echoes in the air, the tone of it driving into your followers, your worshippers, and they respond. Instantly, immediately. Your hand snaps away from the light, and the sensation fades, leaving only the memory of a name. TYRANT ARACHNE.You skitter and step away, trying to find your breath, and run straight into another light.This one feels more familiar- you still can't see, but the forest is all around you. Somehow. Each step hammers the ground, each breath is a rasping promise to every creature around. That you are the greatest of them- An alpha predator. Unafraid. Unstoppable. Your head swings around as you scent something, blood and meat and fur- Muscles tense, chitin clicks, your body more powerful than ever before, lungs swelling- The air leaves you all at once, a roar blasting through the leaves, a primal sound of fury and bloodlust, a warning and an oath. That you are here, that you are-You stumble away, blinking the sensations away as your had clears from the heady feeling of the hunt. DEINOS ARACHNE.You can't help but wonder if you'll remember any of this come morning. You spend a second, letting your heartbeat slow, looking to the other twinkling lights.Each point a new form.You step forward again, bracing yourself, for all it's worth.
>>41377750>So we tankbutt now, right?Grave Arachne was the "hunt and kill huge things" evolution. We are somewhat tankbutt since the first though.
>>41377760The next is sweltering heat, so thick that the air itself feels heavy, your lungs more like the bellows of a forge than delicate organs meant to draw breath. You exhale, and you can feel, rather than see- a thick plume of smoke escaping your throat. Your hands clench, and you can feel answers- not just the push and pull of your muscles, but the thunder of the flow of earth, somewhere deep and far away. The rumble of stone against stone, the pressurized surge of liquid rock, the heat of it, not just below, but in your veins, the tremor that is your heartbeat, answered by the earth. The slow movement of your power, before all at once-You're released from the spark, dazed all the same, the beat of your furnace heart still echoing int your ears. CINDER ARACHNE.You toss your head, hair shifting as you move to the next. As your fingers close over this the orb, a sense of weight falls over your shoulders- Not something physical, but rather- The knowledge, the feeling of something. Responsibility? You feel light on your feet. Strong. There are shadows behind you- People to protect. But there are others- at your sides, before you, all around, each waiting for your words. Your voice feels strong. Like your words are backed by not just your intent, your promises, but something else. All around you, shades move as you speak, and you raise your own weapons, power swelling in them-It feels like there's something at your brow, but as you brush it away the phantom feeling recedes.SOVEREIGN ARACHNE.You grimace at the name, moving again to touch another spark.
Wow these are kinda sinister.
>>41377794Yes, we are a giant predatory spider. Glad you could join us.
>>41377793This time, the ringing is in your ears, twitching in time with phantom sounds, the feel of metal before you, around you. Your breathe is sparks, your hands hammers. You are a forge, an anvil. Things form beneath your fingers, and you wield your own creations with all the skill of someone who knows them inside and out. The fire inside you burns slow, growing welling up until you're incandescent, blazing-All the air escapes your lungs at once as you stagger to the next spark, the sensation of heat still oozing off you. HEARTH ARACHNE.You can't- You can't quite remember the last times. The evolutions, growths, whatever you want to call them.But you're fairly certain they weren't like this? If you really concentrate, you don't remember any choices. Just- Just the voice, and an offer, and waking to a new body. You frown, and reach for the last spark.This one- this feels like yourself. Like you are. But not quite. Like you're- Like you are sharper, and there's an oppressive sort of feeling...There's something on your hands. And your head, too. Horns? And something glimmering. And a feeling- You push at it, with your will, your power, and it expands, becoming, changing- You feel invincible, strong, armed and armoured. Like nothing can stop you, nothing can face you. You raise your weapons, a piece of you, now more than ever.The feeling fades slowly, like an image that had overlapped your own slowly vanishing. Your hands close gently, the sensation of the weapons still there.GRAVE LORD ARACHNE.You look up again after a short while, still trapped amidst the shadows.But around you- Around you, the sparks have started to cluster, spinning, turning- Each staying just within reach. It's obvious what they want. A choice. You have to make a choice.
SOVEREIGN ARACHNE sounds best!
>>41377839Hey retardo, no voting until :49.
>>41377856Fuck off nin
>>41377814either tyrant or grave lord, for me.so, tyrant, but grave lord if it winds up being a tie breaker.Not voting yet because it's not time to vote yet, but what do you guys think? we got 20 minutes to discuss before we gotta vote.
>>41377814Discussion starts now. There'll be another post when voting begins.I'll answer questions as necessary.20 minutes to go.
>HEARTH ARACHNEWE MASTER WEAPONSMITH OF BEST WEAPONS NOW
Deinos sounds most like us since we ARE the alpha predator, We always have been
>>41377868Would any choices, cinder especially, make us physically weaker in exchange for a boost in other areas?
Definitely not feeling the Grave Lord, the Cinder, Sovereign and Tyrant are kinda appealing though.Also feel like this is kinda appropriate right now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htDB8SuLrng&ab_channel=Catbus
I suppose Tyrant doesnt have much chance, since most will find it too bad.Deino is basically the advancedform of what we are right now, even bigger predator spider.Which is awesome, IMO.Cinder is just Lava spider, you like it or you don't.Sovereign. Oh god. Nin.But honestly that sort of leadership doesn't seem like something Lyra has done before, she leads from the front, she isn't really a "give orders and organise" sort of giant spider.Hearth. Hephaistos spider, fuck yeah.Grave Lord is just the Lord evolution. Eh. Too generic for me.
Honestly DEINOS sound the most like Lyra to me. Find big things and eat them
>>41377814>SOVEREIGN ARACHNEYou know you want it Lyra.
Oh wow, they all sound awesome.
So, I'm thinking either Cinder, Soveriegn or Grave Lord.Cinder because more fire is always good.Sovereign because being queen is ievitable.Grave Lord sounds real fuckin Nito.I'm not sorry.
okay, so, what are each of the forms?Tyrant is just us, but bigger and smashier.Grave lord is us with horns and better skills.What the fuck is deinos? And sovereign? I guess sovereign is if we want to diplomacy things.
>>41377868How long till the next evo after this?
>>41377868I'm going with either tyrant or deinos, whichever seems to be doing the best.
I'm liking Tyrant, myself. Although, I'll admit, I still enjoy the idea of Lyra being NANOMACHINES.
>>41377915>>41377856I want to remind everyone to keep their windows closed and the light on to keep infiltrating moths away from their computers.
>>41377935isn't tyrant the NANOMACHINES option?Because I am choosing that one currently.
I like deinos and sovereign, but I definitely feel sovereign would be the better choice for us in the long run, building off that protector blessing and all that.
>>41377919No tyrant is the first thing, Deinos is the bigger form
>>41377868How is voting going to work, do we get one choice, or can we vote for several things? Or do you make it FD style?
>>41377950Sorry, that was what I meant. My wording may have been strange.
>CINDER ARACHNEWe will be the warmest spiderbutt. We will celebrate by having hambuggahs on the mobile grill that is our spiderbutt
I love of the whole Tyrant description and then we go right back to being Lyra.A massive being of pure Terror! A horrid spider with earth and fire at her call!"Hello! Why are you cowering yes?"
Guys reread, The descritption comes FIRST for the thing and then the name
>>41377955>building off that protector blessingAll the options do that. None of them prevent us from being a protector.>>41377950>isn't tyrant the NANOMACHINES option?No Deino is more that. Tyrant is more the "FEAR ME" option. I'm pretty sure Deino has the higher physical stats.
The Soverign seems like we give buffs to people we lead into battle.definitely don't want the Lord as skills are something we can pick up on our own but new special abilities are not.
Guys.With Hearth ArachneWe can make all of the bestest weaponsand be forgespider supreme
>>41377961Tyrant is the smashier big form.Deimos is the dodgier big form.I choose the smashy big form.
I'm honestly not feeling Sovereign.Being responsible and stuff honestly doesn't seem all that fitting or interesting.I do like the smithing stuff, but I don't want to focus our evolution around it.Grave Lord is just a bit boring I think.Cinder sounds pretty cool, Deinos is pretty damn metal and Tyrant is kind of awesome.
>>41377955Well, some say the best defense is a good offense>proactive spiderbutt, anyone?>preferably using fire?
>>41378010>Tyrant is the smashier big form.>Deimos is the dodgier big form.I don't think thats what it is. Tyrant seems more like a hybrid of Deino and Sovereign.
>>41378004I am pretty sure tyrant is the one with the STR, and deinoss the one with the AGI.
>>41378010You obviously didn't read, Tyrant is just making others submit, Not smashier
I like sovereign, that looks like it has our protection blessing coupled with additional party buffs. Go full paladin.
>>41378008Industrial revolution Lyra.
I choose Soveriegn.Behold the Purple Skull.
>>41377950Nah, Deinos seems to be the NANOMACHINES option. Tyrant seems to be more like an aggressive leader equivalent to sovereign's more defensive leader. So I'd assume things like attack buffs for our allies and stuff.
>>41378008No that 's Sovereign, Hearth is being the weapons....all the weapons.
>>41378010I honestly got the impression that tyrant was the more intimidating form, while deinos was the 'rawr ima dino' form.
Let's break it down:> TYRANT ARACHNESovereign type alpha, force of presence to cow threats, probably physical stat increased> DEINOS ARACHNEPrimitive alpha. Physical stat boost a definite but costs us a degree of refinement.> CINDER ARACHNEPure elemental, though predominantly focused on base elements of fire and earth> SOVEREIGN ARACHNEA leader class based around giving people bonuses> HEARTH ARACHNEMetalline elemental variant. Probably gives adept control over metal bending in real time.> GRAVE LORD ARACHNEWeapon use focused, described as basically being Lyra as she is now but with general stat upgrades.
>>41378032Deino seems like it's got more sensory packages and fighting fury than actual smashyness, though.
>>41378040I have to agree. I would prefer Lyra to be an inspirational leader, like the queen of England rather than a machiavellian tyrant
>>41378038>I am pretty sure tyrant is the one with the STR, and deinoss the one with the AGI.Doesn't seem to suggest that to me, nothing suggest particular strength about Tyrant and Deino is clearly "super stronk"-the evolution.Better just ask REQM>>41377868Is Tyrant the Strength evo to Deinos Dexterity evo, or is it more a Sovereign/Deino hybrid?
>>41378041Fuck off nin, It's being the weak leader in the back option and is fucking shit
>>41378049I dibnt think of it that way, I was thinking Tyrant as in Dinosaur Terrible Lizards but aggressive leadership makes sense, leading from the front and all.
>>41378056I think Tyrant is intimidating, while Deinos is even more of the Apex Predator thing.
>>41378069Deinos description included earth-shaking footsteps, which seems to suggest that it's pretty smashy
>>41378069>Deino seems like it's got more sensory packages and fighting fury than actual smashyness, though.It also got that, but it gets that instead of Tyrants social parts.Deino is the Alpha Predator option, I think its pretty safe to assume it got the highest physical stats, or at least equal to anything else.
WE WERE NEVER A LEADER! LYRA NEVER WANTED TO BE A LEADER!
I don't really like the intimidating OR the alpha predator angle, though.So I guess I have to go with grave lord.Because I am about us getting more smashlike and better for a good foight.
Hearth arachne might be interesting>metalbender when?
>>41378053No? Sovereign is clearly the leadership form.Hearth is the forge.
>>41378115>Lyra has a fucking party and is the leaderLyra is a leader.
>>41378115>WE WERE NEVER A LEADER! LYRA NEVER WANTED TO BE A LEADER!The latter is true, the former is not.>>41378119>Because I am about us getting more smashlikeThat would be Deino though. The difference between Deino/Tyrant and Lord is probably Stats vs Skills.
>>41378065My vote would be for Grave Lord, with the hopes that the remaining templates we've unlocked account for what we miss. We generally act more as a weapons user than anything else.DEINOS is too primitive. TYRANT sounds too sinister. SOVEREIGN places us in a support role which we won't use properly. CINDER and HEARTH, while they have my heart haven't been things we've had the wherewithal to use lately.
Damm, Tyrant or Deino here.Soveriegn lost my vote because I do enjoy the whole everyone fearing the giant monster to avoid all queen responsibilities.
>>41377814>> SOVEREIGN ARACHNE
>>41378119While I do like the idea of being best at weapons, just think about the last fight we had. How much use did we make of our weapon as opposed to spidey strength and magic?
>>41378121Now, if anons vote right.
>>41378139Yeah, I might be leaning grave lord with you.The others seem to exaggerate aspects of us that aren't super important to us in the first place. Which I guess past evolutions have done, but still.My biggest problem:The horns.
>>41378065Grave Lord is the metalline elemental and the weapons master....because you are the weapons.
>>41377900None of them will make you weaker. Physically or otherwise. Cinder's focus isn't physical power, but it would still come with a modest increase.>>41377921It depends on what Lyra gets up to, of course.But you can expect either a significant period of time or some serious fighting before you see the next one.>>413779735 Minutes, in the format of >>Post #126.96.36.199.5.Position gives points- #1 is five, #5 is 1. Highest points will win. I thought this would be the easiest, but if anyone has another opinion, feel free to voice it.>>41378077Tyrant is more of a physical/charisma type thing.Deinos is apex predator.Sovereign is similarly physical/charisma, but with a different focus on the charisma side.Lord is lord.Cinder is volcano arachne.Hearth is forge.
I think I'm gonna throw my vote behind either Hearth or Tyrant as hearth gives us increased metalbending and elemental stuff while tyrant will let us fuckshit up all nicely in their faces.
It's either METAAAAAAAAAAAAAL, Deinos, or GraveLord for me.
>>41378161Also, people have been against lord in the past purely because everyone else in the family became one.
>>41378161We are locked out of better evo's if we take that though you moron!
>>41378161>Horns>Forever branded a copy cat of mom.
>>41378165Grave Lord was said quite explicitly as being like Lyra is now, but better all around.
REQM Do any of these options cost us our skull butt?
Probably voting Tyrant or Deinos. Unless Gravelord has a huge backing. Personally I like Deinos just because, earth shaking steps. But thats just cause I like big smashy smashy.
>>41378157you know, now that I've figured out none of the options are really specifically smashy, you can totally sell me on metalbending.
>>41378165WRONGHEARTH IS FORGE SPIDERFIRE AND METAL BENDING AT MAX LEVELMAKE MAX LEVEL ARTIFACTS IN DAYS
>>41378128Sovereign is the "MY PEOPLE" form, Tyrant is the "MY PEOPLE" form. They're both leadership based.
>>41378177Would hearth make our Carapace / chitin metal?This is a very big sticking point for me.
>>41378139Sovereign won't have us sitting in the back. We'd still be at the front as usual, but we'd be inspiring people to fight harder. Lead from the front.
I'm leaning toward Sovereign. Nono, hear me out. Lyra already has charisma and a way with people. This doesnt mean she needs to rule, but it does means are friends are probably going to be better prepared and protected. It'll also be nice to be able to have more presence for later on.
>>41378177>I thought this would be the easiest, but if anyone has another opinion, feel free to voice it.Thats pretty clever actually.It mkight lead to something winning by points on technicality despite being no ones favourite, but I think none of the choices are that bad we eed to avoid it.
>>41378219Fuck off diplomancerfag!
>>41378139I agree with these points, but Grave seems like the safe option. If we took CINDER or FORGE our style would adapt (hopefully)
>>41378210Tho sovereign is like benevolent king while tyrant is more about crushing any threats to your rule type stuff.
>>41378228Just linked to the post with which REQM opens voting.
>>41378228No like this>>413781771.Sovereign2.Sovereign3.Sovereign4.Sovereign5.Sovereign
Actually, fuck it. Lets be Tyrant, but with our normal personality. It's smashy AND Queeny.
>>41378177Could you explain exactly what happens with the Lord type evolution. I remember you said it was basically a half-type evolution that might take away things from the conventional evolving order. If so, please tell us now.
My biggest problem is I don't really like any of the choices that much.None really... call out to me. Tyrant did when I was mistaken about what it did, but now, meh.I'm kind of being sold on metal bending a little, but that isn't nearly as entertaining to watch in a textual medium.
Which evolution can we force Nin to rule instead of us with?
>>41378253That's what I said, anon.
>>413781771.Deinos2.Tyrant3.Grave Lord4. Hearth5. Soverign

>>41378297But I don't like huntm'n brand smashy.
>>41378278but you didn't emphasize the intent and it bothered me so I had to say something sorry
I really kind of hope we can dodge Grave Lord.Sure, you can say that none of the other things had that much focus, but evolutions are to a big degree about adding new stuff.For "more of the same" you can just level up your existing skills and stats.
>>41378313Fuck the hell of you diplomancing faggot
Personally, I think Hearth/Metalbutt spider has the best Long-term abilities and uses.
>>41378304>>41378297>>41378302Sorry, little hyped. Jumped the gun.
>>41378313not yet ya jankus.
>TyrantB-but... I don't want Lyra to become a bully spider
>>41378316But I did emphasize the intent. I just used the exact same words to mean very different things.
So what does everyone think Jinni's next evo is gonna be? Phoenix Comet blessed Owl?
>>41378328>long-term>not picking leaderbutt evo to prepare for our inevitable ruling position
>>41378317Yeah we don't want to waste evolutions on skill boosts when we can just raise our skills with time anyways.
>>41378317I hope we can avoid Sovereign like the plague, Lyra is NOT a diplomancer for fucks sake!
>>41378345>Wanting to fuck with a Spider with a metal kingdom.
>>41378317well, it's a hard choice anon.I guess I might go deimos or tyrant, but I don't quite like either of them.I might just go fuck it and be straight hearth.
>>413781771. Sovereign2. Hearth3. Cinder4. Tyrant5. Deimos>>41378349The way I saw it, soverign could be diplomancy, but more importantly, its tactics, and as someone currently playing xcom, I'm a fan of additional tactics ability.
1. Hearth2. Cinder3. Sovereign4. Grave Lord5. TyrantTyrant a shit. A SHIT!
>>41378349She's a Nanoha-style Diplomancer.
>>41378358>Wanting to fuck with a spider with a maxed out STERN GLARE skill.
>>41378336I've got bad news for you.She's been bullying since she bullied Shezka into joining the family.She also kept bullying Lann.She recently bullied a whole bunch of wolves into her service.She still bullies Ezzie into training.And she just now bullied octobro.
>>41378346Keep in mind, there are things we get in every evolutions that you CANNOT get with anything else. Basically, a lord type evolution would give us a massive boost with weapons use that only increased as we trained it. It's like having a +20 to shanking a bitch on top of whatever we get from training.

I still see a general trend of people thinking that Hearth was still a pretty cool option.
Not that I'm accusing anybody, but this format is really easy to samefag.
>>41378572Yeah, that's gonna be annoying.I wish you the best of luck, REQM.
>>41378558I count 45 votes. Have Fun!
>>41378586>not typing while you talkstep it up anon
>>41378395>>41378558And I was too late to get my corrected 6 choice vote in.

>>41378576Because Metal Spider.Hell, it's possible that eventually we wouldn't even need to touch people to melt their armor, just look in a vague direction and everyone around you is suddenly screaming as molten slag eats away at them.
And then Soverign wins because it soaked up all the 3rd and 4th place votes.
Lotta invalid votes, looks like. To be fair, my first vote was invalid so I deleted and re-submitted.
>>41378576Hearth was my second choice but I caved because my first choice was unpopular.
Methinks we need a new thread, we're on page 9 right now.
>>41378558My prayers are for Hearth or Deinos
>>41378609Looks like currently Hearth has the most 1 spots with 14 to Tyrants 13, due to a pretty large late game surge for it for some reason. Most of those also voted Tyrant low, while Hearth has a lot of middlings positions in addition. Its gonna be a close one.
>>41378608hearth is pretty high up there.I would be OK if it was picked, along with a few others.
>>41378609God i fucking hope not it's fucking terrible
>>41378582All formats are easy to samefag for a determined enough samefagger.And with this many voters there will always be at least one guy determined enough.Just gotta trust that the large base of proper voters and similarly proportioned amount of samefagging on most sides makes the vote reasonably genuine.
Whatever it is, it will be interesting. And we need to send mom a letter telling her allllll about it.
>>41378635I switched from tyrant 1 to hearth 1 in an attempt to ensure both tyrant and hearth will have more points than either other category.Also because I'm a flip flopper and had to think about it some more.
I liked Tyrant, but what made it my #1 was the thght of our Elf relations reacting to fear-spider giving them a chipper "Good Morning!"
>>41378635If Tyrant wins its probably thought its Deinos bros who nearly universally voted it into second place.
>>41378635Yeah, like five extremely similar votes showed up within ~10 seconds of each other, which completely threw the curve.
Alright boys, time to start arguing over what the next evolutions will be
>>41378638I'd be fine with it as long as sov doesn't win
>>41378638I like Hearth, because if we use our natural internal heat and oil, we can come out of it all prismatic and be absolutely fucking fabulous, like we took a trip into JoJo's world for a bit.
>>413783951 hearth2 cinder3 deinos4 gravelord5 sovereign 6 tyrant
Now, the next question. What the hell extras do you think we'll get?
>>41378676Nin: But the teasing! THE TEASING!
>>41378642While I don't hope it wins, I would probably consider it worth it if for the players rage and Nin's delight.
>>41378679>LyLy's Fabulous Adventure!>You thought it was Sheszka! But it was me! Nin!
I honestly, I kind of feel like a showdown between the top two options would be appropriate.With this many carryover points from 3rd, 4th and so on place, weird shit can happen, especially when people start trying to game the system.
>>41378702Nin, please.Anyways, I don't think Sovereign really has a chance: from what I can tell it got mostly middle to low ratings. I'm pretty sure the big three contenders are Tyrant, Hearth, and Deinos.
>>41378672Within 10 seconds strongly suggests against samefagging, samefagging is usually done at 1 minute intervals or so.
>>41378679imagine lyra's limit break final attack>ZA WARUDO! WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!and then she throws a wagon at someone
>>41378713There is literally no reason to not like Sovereign other than getting mad at a fictional character
>>41378748What would Lyra's Stand be? And what would it do?>Inb4 IT JUST WORKS.
>>41378744Hm? That wasn't my thought, I was just commenting. It was funny to see them all show up in one refresh.
>>41378749>getting mad at a fictional character>4chanIs this something you weren't expecting?
>>41378749I consider it to in theory support large scale tactics, and due to my current xcom phase tactical stuff is nice.
>>41378744>Within 10 seconds strongly suggests against samefagging, samefagging is usually done at 1 minute intervals or so.Nah, for something like this you definitly make the effort to reset IPs, which means you can post easily every 8-15 seconds.Depending on how much you prepared.
>>41378749I voted for it in my third slot, I hope Hearth wins.
>>41378761Lyra IS her own stand
>>41378749I don't really dislike it myself, but if you want to eat faces a lot more than you want to buff, it's kind of valid to dislike it.
>>41378781Seriously? How the hell does that even work?
>>41378621You know, I don't even know why I bother. I know that I know can't get the vote in on time while I'm working.
>>41378761>>41378748lyra's got enough fucking magical powers without giving her a stand.It'd be like giving a magical vampire with ice powers and a perfect body a stand.Just unnecessary.
>>41378816>Still is just Lyra herself....
>>41378808>It'd be like giving a magical vampire with ice powers and a perfect body a stand.You honestly think there won't be one?
>>41378761「ITSY BITSY SPIDER」
>>41378761"Motörhead", of course.
>>41378828>>41378828en we would have the most useless stand ever, Also Nin was a mistake if you ask me, It got bloated when she came
All I can say is, fuck whatever dick head didn't put all of their options in.
I kinda regret voting Hearth so high because I didn't expect it to have much of a chance.That came kind of out of nowhere, I was sure it was going to be between Sovereign/Tyrant/Deinos/Cinder.Ah fuck it.
>>41378781>make the effort to reset IPs, which means you can post easily every 8-15 seconds.I hear this time and again; what kind of shit ISP doesn't have DHCP keep a MAC address table to prevent using up IP addresses from timeouts and resets?
>>41378799Probably with some sort of proxy add-on to your browser, and a 5 or so prepared proxy profiles.The you just vote, pick the next prxy profile in your dropdown list, wait the 5 seconds until your IP was changed and vote again until you run out.I mean, I'd be way too lazy to bother with this sort of stuff for a 4chan quest, but it's not like it'd be really hard.
>>41378872>what kind of shit ISP doesn't have DHCP keep a MAC address table to prevent using up IP addresses from timeouts and resets?Dunno, I never heard of one that does it. And in the end you can always use a mobile stick.
>>41378853It got bloated when she came
Can't wait to see everyone's reactions to our EVO.
I'm just hoping we get a second round of voting for top 2 or 3 from the initial vote.
>>41378905I dunno man, that seems like it invites factionalism and knife fights.I mean, the result might anyway, but then at least its over.
>>41378605Using phone, vote disnt count... This gon be disappointing
>>41378903Lewd. And that picture pixel size, man.
>>41378905That would be nice, but it's always going to be a clusterfuck so might as well roll with what this is.
>>41378905No fuck off
>>41378905While I'm not a huge fan of Hearth, I think that that would just end up provoking a shitstorm.
>>41378905I hope more REQM posts the result before the update so we can get the rage out of our system.
>>41378905No that's just fucking stupid! The winner of this vote is the fucking winner>>41378968Agreed
I was a bigger fan of soverign, but I feel hearth is a good fit seeing we've had the whole odd mothering affection for every individual we arbitrarily decide to adopt for a while now.
>>41378926>>41378943>>41378961>>41378968o-ok...>>41378947im so sorry anon i didnt mean it
>>41378961>I'm not a huge fan of HearthI'm sort of baffled that it got so many top spots. Of all the things they represent forging and metalshaping is by far the thing Lyra did the least.We had maybe two accounts of forging and we not even once used metalshaping in fights.And we never tried making weapons or armour before.Its just a bit random.
>>41378968He has to, or the next thread will be consumed by rage when he opens with the results...
>>41379001>Cinder -185WOOT? Seriously? Thats kinda hilrious, it soaked up all the middlings spots then?
>>41378998Hearth should have the biggest spider butt. Because our spider butt has graduated to a house with a hearth
>>41379029Sorry, I deleted that so we don't get too much trouble in the meantime. I'm gonna keep counting up the other votes, because there is no clear winner yet.
>>41378995Eh, I'd kind of like a showdown vote between the top 2-3 myself.Things soaking up middling votes can get really damn weird, especially if people intentioanlly downvote perceived rivals.
>>41378998It also covers buildings and structures most likely, a Hephaestus class.
>>41379068Honestly, it really does fit us as much as we all want to be a bad ass leadership combat class.
I think I counted incorrect votes, and now I need to start over?This is actually brutal, what was I thinking.
>>41378998It looks to me like Hearth might have been the Anti-Tyrant vote.There is a very strong correlation between voting high Hearth and low Tyrant. Nearly all votes with hearth in first or seond place voted Tyrant in fifth or sixth place.Might be a coincidence, but it might be some people jumped on Hearth when they saw it was the one with the highest chances over Tyrant/Deinos/Sovereign.
>>41378998Actually, now that I think about it there was a lot of talk about being a "metal spider" early on, though it seems like Hearth might not quite be all the way there yet.
>>41379105Remove leadership and yes
>>41379123Or maybe people wanted a fucking METAL SPIDAH
>>41379119As we said earlier, our condolences and we wish you the greatest fortune. It's gonna suck.
>>41379119Honestly just count all of them, it makes no difference if they were "incorrect" or not.Its not like if someone was samefagging they ouldn't make exact or near exact duplicates.>>41379135>Or maybe people wanted a fucking METAL SPIDAHDespite that Lyra basically never did metal things?
1-5 was a bit odd. Weird things can pop up nobody really intended.
>>41379105The "God" classes that come out of it should be pretty amazing; walk through ruins and leave a city in our wake.
>>41379119Look on the bright side, when archelon asked himself that he'd already alienated the majority of his quest. You've only managed to make yourself miserable. Besides, this is a great time for me to discover I have a lactose allergy
>>41379144Lyra did just as much lava things as she did metal things.Hell, Lyra has used her WEB less than she has really used either of those.
>>41379119I'm counting alongside you, but yes, this is fucking terrible. At the same time, I think this was probably the best way to avoid same fagging. Also, holy fuck, people can't spell Sovereign to save their lives.
>>41379144I'd like to think that repeatedly ramming a giant bison head-first into the ground is pretty metal.
>>41379163>Lyra did just as much lava things as she did metal things.Yeah but she did Earth and Fire things. And Cinder is just as much Fire as Lava.
>>41379159Honestly, that sounds like it'd be pretty nice. Hell at a minimum think of all the archaeologists and anthropologists who'd be making offerings to us for us spending 5 minutes returning everything to original condition for them to look at.
>>41379173>I think this was probably the best way to avoid same faggingU wot m8? Not even remotly.I mean, its probably the best way he could have come up with with 6 choices, but its not great for its anti-samefagging property.
>>41379144>Honestly just count all of them, it makes no difference if they were "incorrect" or not.>Its not like if someone was samefagging they ouldn't make exact or near exact duplicates.The problem is that you have one or two votes that only put votes for three of the choices: you can't exactly have a fair way to distribute points to the other three. So, votes like that are invalid.
>>41379160Join the club buddy, Surprisingly i also found that out in one of REQM's quest's
I want either tyrant or hearth to win.Though I lean tyrant. After flip flopping. Yet again.Aw jeez.
>>41379180Wasn't cinder also that khorne demon from Khornette quest? The badass one that suplexed a battle barge and got into a fight to the death with herself?
>>41379119Define "incorrect votes".If it's just formatting, I'm not sure you should bother.Samefaggers can get past that stuff anyways.Just open up another vote between the top three, this time with standard "most votes wins" rules and get it over with.
>>41379205>The problem is that you have one or two votes that only put votes for three of the choicesSure you can, just give points for the spot they picked it for. Doesn't seem hard to me. If someone didn't vote for something, then really it hasd no particular business getting points.
>>41379180Metal is also Earth and fire, and Lyra has passively used metal to repair her armor and weapons when they get dinged up / scuffed.
>>41379207I personally want tyrant deinos or hearth to win, Fuck sovereign
>>41379158I like it. It means that people are less likely to vote for options they don't like if they look like they'll beat the option they actually hate.
>>41379221>open up another voteNO ANON DONT SAY THAT PEOPLE HATE THAT
>>41379233You want people to have to put up with things they hate? How the fuck is that a good idea.A good compromise is stil better than that.
>>41379119Yeah, I thought I'd be smart and put it all into a spreadsheet, but now it turns out I apparently have no idea how to use the CountIF function. Sometimes it's counting correctly, sometimes it's not, and I honestly can't tell the difference.
>>41379255>>41379265Calm your tits faggots.
>>41379239People are also idiots.This is a fucking pitch to count.A standard vote between 2-3 options is not.There's going to be a shitstorm anyways.This is one of those times where the GM has to do what he vaguely feels is kind of fair and tell all the buthurt anons to go fuck themselves.
>>41379233It's the same either way.If you voted for Lord, but Tyrant was winning, you might delete and vote for something else.Anyway, it looks like 29 votes out of 46 are actually valid. No idea how that'll pan out.
OH MY GOD I JUST REALIZED: HEARTH ARACHNE ENGINEER. can lyra build turrets? enchanted with magic>i would like to see engi-lyra>SPY'S SAPPING MAH SENTRY, YES
>we never use our forging powers>people vote hearthYou guys suck
>>41379245...what?My point was that this vote PREVENTED that.
>>41379287Yeah, that's kind of weird as fuck.
>>41379278Yeah, it would also safe REQM from having to make sure he didn't miscount anywhere if he just takes the 3 or two with the most in his calc and has them voted on.Its gonna be a lot of pssing around considering people are already voting how much they hate Hearth/Tyrant/Sovereign but its gonna happen anyway.
>>41379286the sentry is nin and jin
>>41379287I have a feeling they voted hearth so that Sov/Tryrant/Lord wouldn't win.
>>41379322I voted Denois so sov wouldn't win, Because fuck that
>>41379287Well, I believe we can have this adventure quest transition to an economics adventure >welcome to Lyra-mart! for all your metalwork needs!
>>41379286No fuck off, this is not frost giantess quest faggots.
>>41379322I voted hearth because it was pretty clear sov wouldn't win even if I voted 1 for it, and judging by counts it seems I was right.
>>41379287I think hearth was a lot of spite voting in many cases. It got a HUGE surge in the later part of the vote.
>>41379322No doubt half the choices were like that. More of a shit-flinging than a vote in that respect.
>>41379322>"I have a feeling they voted for the option I don't like because they didn't vote for options I do like"Fuck you, Hearth stands on it's own.
>>41379223But it still throws everything off because you have all of the positions getting points based on what they're ranked. If REQM doesn't know how many points to give to each, then they can't do anything with them, which might scew things if the first place vote comes down to the wire. Besides, if the person can't follow the rules of the vote, then they have no business voting.
>>41379287WE NEED REAL-ASS-TATE FOR OUR COLLECTION DAMN IT!
Just Deinos left on my end. Also, screw you guy who put Deinos on his twice.
>>41379322No they wanna go the meta game route and aim for muh industrial revolushun
>>41379316Well, either that or just calling it and telling buthurt anons to go fuck themselves.Ultimately anons are going to butthurt.It's part of their cycle of life.The important thing is that the GM feels it's fair and, if you really don't know if you counted correctly, an easily countable revote is best.If you do think you counted correctly, you don't need to bother though.
All I know is I wanted deimos, hearth, or tyrant to win.I may have made a mistake putting hearth above tyrant, but you know what, it's not a huge amount of skin off my nose.Though you guys are giving me killer buyer's remorse.Now I'm hoping for tyrant more.
>>41379287If we never use forging, then it wouldn't be an option. You don't see options for web based evolutions, after all.
>>41379361>Hearth stands on it's ownIf you look at the votes, it clearly doesn't. It got mainly support later in the vote and nearly all of them vote Tyrant low when Tyrant had most of the top spots early on.Its very obvious.Sure, some voted for it because they liked it too.
>>41379373and Tyrant / Sovereign doesn't do that how?
You do realize there are more practical applications of the ability to spontaneously create buildings than just magical turrets and emplacements. We can pull a Wizard of Oz and drop a house on someone. We can build all sorts of trenches, pits, and other faults in the ground and break enemies legs.We can spontaneously use walls to block attacks, or a book shelf to immediately tip over on an enemy. In addition the ability to spontaneously create choke points is pretty nice.
>>41379392>If we never use forging, then it wouldn't be an option.Its a option because we have used forging enough times to get the achievement, which could have easily been the 2 times we did.>>41379396...How does Tyrant and Sovereign enable industrial revolution?
>>41379396Because we're constantly leading our party around, giving orders and protecting each other? It's something we do every time we step out into a hunt. I'm not saying it's the best option, but it does make in-character sense.
>>41379395Or maybe it's because people just didn't like the Tyrant option?Not everything is a fucking conspiracy.I voted Hearth so we could turn an entire fucking army of Knights into screaming coffins of molten metal.
>>41379173Give me a break, sovereign is a weird word.
>>41379421not that anon, but leadership over a nation + meta knowledge = industrial revolution I think
>>41379421Because we can intimidate / diplomance people into doing what we say?
>>41379440>Or maybe it's because people just didn't like the Tyrant option?Yeah, which is why they voted Hearth because it looked like the best chance to not get tyrant, I literally said that.Otherwise you gonna have to explain how it comes basically all hearth high votes place Tyrant low. When its clearly not true the other way around.And also why Hearth is likely to win.
>>41379396You're not making sense boy, read through hearth support posts and it's obvious what theyre doing
>>41379475It's possible people just like the thought of being able to control metal, molten or otherwise over being Ultra-Smashy and Intimidating or controlling fire.
Final analysis, with some margin of error and filling in missing 6th vote by deduction, though not correcting people who submitted less:> Grave Lord: 115 pts> Sovereign: 121 pts> Tyrant: 172 pts> Deinos: 172 pts> Cinder: 185 pts> Hearth: 196 ptsThis is the count I have produced to the best of my ability, and notably places my personal choice somewhere far down the line. REQM, of course, has final say.
>>41379475well, I'm going to cross my fingers on tyrant, but also be happy if hearth wins.
>>41379417or we could make thousands of tiny knives and throw them at someone, then make a steamroller and throw that at them too
>>41371562What did you do?
>>41379475God damn it! What don't you get about that I didn't vote tyrant because I didn't want Tyrant, and that I personally felt that Hearth and Sovereign were both solid choices with a myriad of good uses, including in combat. Seeing as I'm just another anon, I assume that others voted for the same reason. >>41379505Why not just make a giant statue and throw that at them?
>>41379501Oh dear lord I hope this is right.
>>41379501how the hell did cinder get so many points?it had like no topspots.
>>41379501FUCK YES EAT IT SOVEREIGN!Don't care if we do the top three vote now
>>41379501> Cinder: 185 pts> Hearth: 196 ptsMakes sense Cinder+Hearth was what basically all the latew game Hearth voters voted for.Samefagging gave that one consistency the legit votes didn't have
>>41379491Industrial revolution has been mentioned 4 times, tow of those is complaining, the only other times people bring up Metalworking is so we can either turn people into pools of molten metal, or so we can make our own shit better than anyone else.
>>41379505See? Hearth wouldn't be so bad.
I'd be happier with hearth if we actually focused on construction/crafting. As far as it looks now, it's just a neat hobby once in a while. The quest is far more Leeroy Jenkins and friendshipping
>>41379475You know, maybe some of us liked Hearth and didn't want to be fear mongrs?
>>41379540>>41379530They had a strong percentage of middle votes, and hearth had a strong pull toward the end.
>>41379530>how the hell did cinder get so many points?A lot of high spots and all voters for Hearth placed it second spot.>>41379505>things that will never ever been done because we could have already done them and never did
nin is going to be upset
>>41379475>Otherwise you gonna have to explain how it comes basically all hearth high votes place Tyrant low. Perhaps the people who wanted hearth generally shared a desire not to pick the most intimidating evolution? The fourth legit vote was 1. Hearth, with 5. Tyrant. Next was vote eleven, also 5. Tyrant, vote twelve with 6. Tyrant, then vote nineteen with 4. Tyrant. (vote numbers could be off, my spreadsheet is anything but professional).So all first-half votes that seemed to follow the same pattern. Could just be a matter of shared values instead of counter-votes.
>>41379556Piss off, We're going to use it for battle
This has taken too long, now literally no one will be happy and the thread will fill with salt until it falls off the board.
Enough salt to crush coal into diamonds.
>>41379556>I'd be happier with hearth if we actually focused on construction/crafting.We will never do that. We get a evolution focusing on shit we never do, just alone because we spend most of the time traveling and hunting, we have neither the time nor do players have the focus to actually construct things or make use of a construction specilisation.It was sheer mindless spite-voting and people hyping themselves for shit thats never going to happen.
>>41379576Like we have every other battle? Oh, wait.. someone's panties are in a twist.
>>41379569Good, She can go screw and hang herself
>>41379588>>41379578don't go calling salt and such yet, it's been remarkably civil so far with little namecalling.
>>41379578Eh, it's a big Evo. Salt was inevitable.Muh Tyrant Arachne
>>41379578>SALT SPIDER EVOLUTION UNLOCKED>CARRIES THE SALT OF HUNDREDS OF ANONS ON ITS SHELL
>>41379600How are you this angry at a fictional character that's at most been a tease?
>>41379576>Piss off, We're going to use it for battleYeah because we keep doing that all the time.Except not, we have literally not even once used metal bending in a fight and we never will because just using earth and fire is actually convenient while using metal is not.
>>41379578Huh? I think we'll do fine. I trust REQM enough to represent facets of everyone's choice in the final outcome. We won't be JUST an elemental spider. Our new form will likely reflect the weight of our experience, with enough variants to make it feel like Lyra and leave nobody wanting.This is coming from someone who placed Hearth in third.
>>41379556Battle Forge-touching and metal bending is what we are going for, you fucking moron.Being able to Forge and repair our own weapons and armor is just a side benefit.We can now probably go FULL BALROG, but instead of Just "Fire" whips and weapons, we have serpents of molten metal coming from our hand that we use to fuck people up.
Oh shit, I was so focused on weapon stuff that I didn't even realize that hearth would be armor too. We really could be metalbutt by making our own custom-fitting armor!Also, we're on page 9 here, hopefully REQM is aware of this but just pointing it out for safety.
>>41379576Yeah, I'd be satisfied with Hearth if it turns our legs/claws into metal. Bonus points if we can draw up metal from the ground with the same amount of control we currently have over earth.
>>41379644>Battle Forge-touching and metal bending is what we are going forThats something we could have already done, wonder why we never did then you dipshit.We will literally never do it for the exact same reason we never did it before.
Oh shit variants, wonder how many we will get this time and how awesome they will be.
Ok, seriously, what's with the spite all of a sudden in this thread?
>>41379596We also haven't used that magic in general either.People are complaining about Hearth voters wanting their molten metal and metal bending shenanigans, and yet they seem to forget that a good deal of people wanted "Tyrant" just for the fucking JOKE of being a VERY INTIMIDATING SPIDAH that is actually Super-Fucking Nice.So get bent.
>>41379644>Battle Forge-touching and metal bendingYou mean those things we could always do and never did in a fight ever?Nah, this evo will not matter for 99% of things we will do because its skillsets are the ones Lyra does the least out of everything she does.
>>41379686Samefags more than likely
>>41379667>6 main evo options>at least 2 variants each>so much detail dear jesusREQM you're too good for us we don't deserve youuu
>>41379686Big vote + a lot of very similar votes for very similar reasons = a level of salt that cannot be conceived by the human mind.
>>41379667Exactly. We'll be something like a battle touched titan slayer with fire-earth boosts and protection domain. We'll just be a little more adept at shaping metal and using the weapons we have. Hell, maybe we can do the magneto thing if we get really good.
>>41379695We didn't do them in a fight because we could never do them. Additionally, at most we're fighting wild animals with MAYBE a bandit. That will not always be the case.
>>41379686I think no one expected Hearth to seriously win, a lot of people voted it relatively high and are angry now they sabotaged themselves.And of course the winning option would always get salt. Unless it would have been Dino I guess.
>>41379686It just happens every evo, a thread or two of shitstorming and then no one mentions it again.
>>41379607You're right. Less salt and more... flax? Wahtever you call that stuff you use to bulk up products. Mechanically Recovered Meat, stuffing, whatever.
>>41379686There's only a handful of angry people, really. I'm a bit booty-bothered that none of my top picks won, but at least the most useless one lost.
>>41379705And there were two evos that we didn't even get access to. Clearly REQM got a hold of a load of caffeine and this is drunk stupor of choices available to us.
>>41379718>We didn't do them in a fight because we could never do them.Are you retarded? WE ALREADY HAVE METALSHAPING.We could have ALWAYS done it. Literally in every fight ever.And since Metalshaping is touch range there is literally no point in shaping the armour when we can just break it. Thats why we never use metalshaping because its just not a convenient solution. Its never the better thing to do in a fight.
>>41379725I am sort of kicking myself for putting hearth 1 point above tyrant, myself.
Is it just these two faggots hatefucking each other?
>>41379783I put it third place myself, now I wish I would have put it lower, because I seriously did not see it coming as a option that was going to go high. I thought Cinder was going to be the one the elemental spergs pick.
>>41379763Did you read the rest of his post? We never used metal shaping in battle because we never fight things that HAVE metal stuff.
>>41379763Also the fact we've never fought armored opponents before, but let's just ignore that.Let's also ignore the fact that metalshaping took minutes which is incredibly impractical in a battle situation, but will be much more viable now.
>>41379803Eh, Hearth spider gives us more flexibility, it's fire and earth where Cinder was just fire.Plus, it's always nice to have more flexibility in general.
>>41379814>We never used metal shaping in battle because we never fight things that HAVE metal stuff.And we are no likely going to do that alot, and since metalshaping is done by hand, we ae not likely going to use it against those tiehr, because we just use magic and spears.
Noooooo, I missed the thread! oh well, personally was on the fence for deinos tyrant and hearth, small preference for deinos. so I am pleased. Also REQM is based QM
As muc has I was very much against a certain evolution, I'm sure that whatever we get, Lyra will still be the same lovable spider she's always been, and will still get up to hijinks and have fun times with her friends.
I can already see the description for this thread in the archives>From 50 to over 800 Posts in under 2 Hours, all because of the Spider-Butt.
>>41379820>Let's also ignore the fact that metalshaping took minutesIt actually didn't. Shaping into specific shapes took time, but even Lyra reforging her spear took her not even a minute. And we are not gointg to go into touch range with armoured opponents, how dumb would that be. We skewer them with our spear, or kill them with magic.We're not going to let them get close enough to touch their armour 90% of the time.
>>41379835Okay. And? It has applicable uses outside of battle, anyways: Lyra's done a lot of work with forging, crafting, and home building and renovation. It's always been something that anons had interest in, so it's really unsurprising it did so well.
I've gotten different results from Each all votes, votes that were close to the format, and votes that actually match the format.All votes is taken by hearth.Close is a Hearth & Cinder tie.Exact is Tyrant.Reduced one choice vote?My call?Anons meet up and have a giant knife fight, winners decide?
>>41379880Rock paper scissors, solves all problems.
>>41379880No hearth won and just fuckign do that please no other votes for the love of god please REQM!
>>41379880>Anons meet up and have a giant knife fight, winners decide?This none. Come at me faggots. I make Sovereign win afterall.But seriously>Reduced one choice vote?Lets get it over with. Sovereign and Lord are out, 4 choices one pick Final Destination
>>41379880>Reduced one choice votelets put hearth, cinder and tyrant into a vote
>>41379880Oh no, something's wrong with the evolution.And then Lyra was Numemon.But seriously its your call. You're the storycrafter.
>>41379880You pick! Just end it
>>41379880I, for one, would like for a drunken brawl to break out in the streets, but it's up to you in the end.
>>41379880I'd say YOU should choose from among Hearth, Cinder, and Tyrant.
>>41379880Your call REQM.People are just mad they voted honestly and didn't get the one they wanted, not me, I wanted Hearth to win.
I've managed to recontextualize the vote in a way that makes me happen.DA-DUN DUN DUN DUN>>41379880I am biased towards tyrant, but I think tyrant VS hearth is close enough that some argument will occur.So, I dunno. I wanna say go with tyrant. But it's probably to just vote on it, or flip a coin, or pick.
>>41379880I say you get the final say. No more voting.
>>41379880Well, prepare for people who want Hearth to demand you stick to the vote.But seriously, either you pick, which I assume means Hearth anyway since I see no reason you wouldn't pick the winner.Or we get this behind us with a last vote.
>>41379880>Reduced one choice vote
>>41379880Just fucking pick one REQM, Just get it over with otherwise it'll only be more bitching and whining
>>41379880You choose, get this over with and let me sleep already.
>>41379880your call no more votes
>>41379880Just shut up, roll a d3 or something, and get on with the writing already. This has taken WAY too long already.
>>41379880So what were the totals for each of them, out of curiosity, or did you not keep the totals?
>>41379880I say you mentally write a vote between Nin, Sheszka, Ezzy and Jin and the majority vote wins.
>>41379880You do it,But I like Hearth.
>>41379880Maybe blend Hearth and Tyrent? Iron King?
I like how only that one guy brought up how people were bitching about Hearth and yet several people voted for Tyrant for the purpose of a fucking joke involving overly-sinister Spiders and their pleasant and cheery demeanors
Friendly reminder, there are currently 18 threads between us and archival, so no pressure!
>>41379880Your call, do as you wish, I think everyone here has enough in them to respect the outcome at the very least
>>41379948Prepare yourself for the endless SALT!
>>41379880Pick one and get this goddamned shit over with already
>>41379880Seriously REQM Just Hearth us already!
>>41379880>Knife fightwhatever you pick, keep an eye on the page number.
>>41379880Your Call and have a knife fight anywayWe need to thin the herd
So Hearth Confirmed Biggest spider butt?
>>41379880>My call?I'm not sure what the point of that option is.I see no way you would pick anything but Hearth since it got the majority of points.So the options really are just FD or Hearth.
>>41380020I'm fairly certain Deinos would be biggest, but hearth is probably second.
>>41380038>I'm fairly certain Deinos would be biggest, but hearth is probably second.Deinos and Tyrant are the biggest, REQM already confirmed that.
>>41380020so, we can build an actual forge on our butt? just for giggles, it wouldnt exactly be useful in that location
>>41380034It depends on which votes he counts as valid.
>>41380052So I was half-right, even despite my illiteracy? I'd call that a win.
>>41379880>Exact is Tyrant.If Tyrant won by the votes that were actually legitimate by matching the format, then why does everyone think hearth won?
And then, Lyra hath become The Lord of Cinders. PRAISE THE SUN!
>>41380068>>41380073Yeah I just re-read that line. I didn't see Tyrant won if counted by the votes that actually fit the format.That definitly does make it different.
As you ponder the decision in front of you, you feel another presence enter your realm. As you look around in an attempt to find it you hear a sinister laugh, as a shadow appears in front of you, as you back away from it you stumble and accidentally fall into a sparkEVOLUTION CHOSEN: SOVEREIGN ARACHNE
>>41380052Not flat biggest, biggest butt. I think Hearth will be a house butt, or at least a tiny smithy.
>>41380074I think close makes more sense.Who cares if they missed the numbers or something?
Everyone keep a cool head, what we thought was going to be a saltstorm was only a light dusting. But we're not out of the Ocean yet, unless REQM pulls a trick.
>>41380095Hue piss off that isn't even funny anymore
>>41380095FUCK I CUT OFF THE OTHER HALF OF MY HUE POST!
>>41380095>EVOLUTION CHOSEN: SOVEREIGN ARACHNEHonestly, I voted Sovreign 5, but I would be cool with that after all this salt.>>41380102>Who cares if they missed the numbers or something?Either you count all or you count the ones that are actually legit. Anything in-between is just pointles.
>>41380102Because, presumably, close would be what people would try to use to spam the votes in the hope that it slipped through.
>>41380095>not lord2/10 attempt
All this discussion and I have yet to see anyone ask the most important question of all:Will we be getting a new cool OP pic?
>>41380102>Who cares if they missed the numbers or something?Because it would be the most obviously used samefag method to not have to switch around the positions.Even with exact samefagging can obviously have happened, but it would be definitly the least samefagged one.
>>41380099I hope we keep our skull though
>>41380147Not even a question, of course we will
>>41380099>I think Hearth will be a house butt, or at least a tiny smithy.You're gonna be disappointed with that.At most we get a fire in our skulls nose hole or something.
>>41380147I hope so, I enjoyed the image changing as we grew quite a bit.
>>41380158Do any of them lose the skull?I feel like if future evolutions can take away defining features of older ones it sort of ruins it. Like adding hearth or cinder might make it a lava skull, and the others might reinforce it or scale over it but the skull should still be there, you know?
You brought this upon yourselfAs you wake you hear sobbing, twisting your upper half 180, you are a little shocked that you can even do that and that's what delays your realization.Your friends were crying, sobbing, bawling into your spider-butt, as you reach over you comfort them you finally see it.Your Butt is now completely flat. Where once was a large abdomen capped by a giant skull, now there is a smooth expanse of metal. Perfect for use as an anvil, but useless for sheltering your friends.
>>41380095DAMN YOU NIIIIIN
PAGE 10 ALERT, PREPARE TO EVACUATE
>>41380180maybe the skull butt becomes a stonework or metalcrafted version to represent a forge/forged things?
>>41380199This what you guys voted for! You voted for Hearth! You voted THIS!
>>41380199I think turning 180 at our waist would be creepy as fuck to watch. lets try!
I wonder how human form discovery is gonna go down.
>>41380199You are clearly the better HueHueHue. I can't even imagine a worse result than that.
>>41380296"I don't like it."*Giant Spider*
>735 postsJesus.>>41380234Better yet; one eye socket forms the perfect shape for a small charcoal forge, the other deepens to be used as a trough (complete with nook for our shield), and nose bridge flattens somewhat to serve as an anvil.
>>41380312She could have gotten human legs instead.
>>41380315I now question why there were any other possibilities in my mind.
>>41380296What human form?We reincarnated as a spidergirl with a spider mom and everything, why would we suddenly stop being spider
>>41380199HAHA THERE IT IS! THE GRILLBUT>yes captcha. hambuggahs
>>41380323>Better yet; one eye socket forms the perfect shape for a small charcoal forge, the other deepens to be used as a trough>making the skull into something that doesn't comfortably house our friends anymoreFuck that shit.
>>41380315>*Giant Spider*In my head, this went with the SHAA-ZAM sound.
>>41380333All monsters have a humanoid evo. One that would give us two legs and allow us to pass for human at night, if we were wearing a cloak, if you squinted, while drunk, with cataracts.
>>41380333OP has stated that one of our early evolutionary things could have been to lose the spiderbutt and become more human
>>41380315It would be kind of nice to fit through certain doors, though, if we gained the ability, we had better look damned spidery.
>>41371562REQM you'll want to start a new thread quick before this one falls off. And maybe archive before some salty fuck decides to be a dick.
>>41380356>All monsters have a humanoid evo. One that would give us two legsThats the mage one we are so far away from. We really only have to fear for Sara.
>>41380333>>41380356>>41380371I was actually thinking that we would be like Sheszka and be able to transform between human and 'monster' at will.
>>41380374Should have voted for phasing
We should do a recount.
>>41380398I'd be a lot more okay with this, especially with the way we were feeling both our spider self and human self during the dream thing.As long as we can go back to being giant, ofcourse.Also can you imagine meeting lann and pointing out she looks more monstrous than us?
>>41380412Hey anon, can you do me a favor. I want you to go outside, walk into the street, and jump in front of a bus for us. Please do us and the world a favor?
>>41380348YES. you are human, then, when they least expect it, SHAZAM! in a pillar of fire and earth, lyra transforms into true spider form!
>>41380398that would be useful, though sheszka was already quite human shaped before she evolved.
>>41380398No, thats dumb. Lyra is a giant spider. Deal with it.
>>41380430Nah, spare the bus driver, he should find a river/cliff/somewhere he can die alone.
>>41380430We don't actually have buses here. Too suburban. No need.
>>41380398Nah i'd prefer we not be so sueish
>>41380381>Hello Lyra!>I do not think we have met, yes?>What? It is me, Sara, yes?>...>...>My sister is a giant spider, yes?
>>41380433I think it would have more impact if she was in TRUE SPIDER FORM all the time, but when confronted with a door too small for her butt, she goes human, walks through, and goes back to spider.

The circles spin faster, faster around you, forming a single blurring line before you reach out-You blink bleary eyes into the morning light, the dim red of the sunrise filtering through your tent. The air is already warm- It'll be a hot day, for certain.You grimace at that. Dry heat, hopefully. You can just ignore that, it's the humidity that gets you.You raise a hand to pull the hair from your face- and stop.That is- That is not the shape your hand was last night.You stop, brain tumbling over itself, flexing your fingers in the half-light of morning.They're- Well, your hand looks like it's almost armoured, now. The tips of your fingers seem like they're metal, little veins running to your knuckles.You shift your weight, sliding a long, menacing leg forwards- They're much the same. Heavier chitin. Capped with metal. And you remember. The dream, the voice, the spiraling sparks of potential, all crowding in, fighting to be chosen-

>>41380543______________________________________________________________ARACHNE LYRA HAS RANKED UP TO: -HEARTHBOUND TYRANT ARACHNE-ARACHNE LYRA HAS RECIEVED: [BLESSING OF THE GOD OF RULE]ARACHNE LYRA HAS RECIEVED: [BLESSING OF THE GOD OF THE FORGE]______________________________________________________________You sit very carefully and quietly in your tent, eyes blinking slowly, staring straight ahead. You're not quite sure what to make of the title. Or the blessings. Maybe you should just lie to Nin. You glance over your shoulder at your sleeping friends- They're where you left them, at least. Sort of. The skull is- Not quite bigger. Still the size of your butt. But there's a horn and a half now, one side broken, the other curling proudly into the sky. It looks like it belonged to a dragon.Hopefully that won't offend dragons.Or you won't meet them. You have the distinct impression that neither is particularly likely.Call it a premonition.The camp is starting to stir. You won't be able to stay in much longer.So you take a deep breath and head out.The murmur of voices stops flat as you emerge. People stare. Point. ...Behind you?You twist, looking at your shell- Where a brilliant white harpy has landed, her head plumes twice the size of before, her tail trailing huge curling feathers like a mass of tails."Lyra!" Jin exclaims."I got bigger!"
>>41380578I think you mean the people who voted Sovereign
>>41380594Jesus christ contain your salt and fucking read.Shame its not Sovereign though....
>>41380593DOUBLE DOWN! SQUUEEEEEEEEEEE
>>41380594One, I think he did a tiebreaker thing, combining Tyrant and Hearth.Two, didn't we say it was his choice?
>>41380593We're really popular in divine circles, arent we? Priests are gonna be boggling over us some dayAlso, Tyrant is cool!
>>41380593>HEARTHBOUND TYRANT ARACHNEWHATWAT.WUT.
>>41380593People are still surprised by this?
>>41380593AND REQM PLEASES ALL
>>41380593Are you sure you got bigger and not just the area around you got smaller?also,>tyrant+hearthboundI can live with this.
>>41380593>"Lyra!" Jin exclaims.>"I got bigger!"Yes. Yes you did, I know let's celebrate and hope everyone (and Nin) in camp focuses on you and not me yes.
>>41380593Fuck, forgot about the Harp- MAKE A NEW THREAD NOW!
>>41380593I'm OK with this.
>>41380593>[BLESSING OF THE GOD OF RULE]OH GOD.THE MOTH MUST NEVER KNOW! NEVER!
>>41380593Hmm.If this is a compromise option, it's pretty much the first time I'm not annoyed by it.That said, it's probably for the best if you don't actually tell anyone what you decided on.Noone who isn't already happy is going to be satisfied by the answer and everything you say will only be used to incite further saltstorms.
>>41380593HOW HUEG IS LYRA?IS SHE THE BIGGEST?
>>41380593Please we need a newthread! Please continue for the love of all that is spidery!
>>41380593I respect this decision, It's a good compromise at the very least, and seems to fit Lyra more in my opinion, after all, hearths stay at home.
PLEASE LET JIN HAVE DOUBLE EVOLUTION AS WELL. THEN WE CAN HAVE DOUBLE DOUBLE DOWN
Fuck it. Thread over. OVER!
>tfw REQM calls it here and we get a cliffhanger full of spider-themed what-ifs
>>41380593And with that, Our thread is over for the evening.Next thread should be monday, possibly friday- My work lost half the full time staff, which means my schedule is currently fucked.Questions, concerns and all that, answered in thread!I'll migrate to .moe when we drop off if people are still asking things!
>>41380593LYRA CONFIRMED FOR VICTOR VON DOOMSPIDER
>>41380677Thanks for running, boss.
>>41380662fuck off huegquest
>>41380667A double-Double of monster girls? (yay, Tim Horton's reference)
>>41380677WHAT DO THE OTHER EVO'S LOOK LIKE?!
>>41380660>That said, it's probably for the best if you don't actually tell anyone what you decided on....Anon. We SEE what he decided on.Its Tyrant with Forge blessing. Just like our previous was a Forge-sworn Grave Arachne.
>>41380677How many times did you lose count of the votes?
>>41380677Do we get details on the blessing?
>>41380677When do you plan to update the pastebins?I'm afraid I'll spend the next week obsessively checking, if you don't tell us.
>>41380677What do our new blessings do?
>>41380677I like the compromise, thanks for putting up with the bitching. Looking forward to the reactions. Her combination can't be common.
>>41380677>>41380674YOU FUCKING NIGGER.
>>41380677WOULD YOU RATHER FIGHT A DUCK SIZED LYRA OR A DOZEN LYRA SIZED DUCKS?
>>41380677How specialized would medical professionals need to be to treat us?
>>41380722I call 'em as I see 'em.
>>41380674>>41380677fuck you you psychic fuck
>>41380677THANKS FOR RUNNING!I have pretty much transcended mortal limits of hype in this thread, and probably untilt he next one.
>>41380677Thanks for running. Things have been fairly civil all things considered.>>41380716Also this.
>>41380727I would capture a duck sized lyra and make her queen>nin
>>41380677Thanks for the run. See you next time.
>>41380727ummm. tiny lyra, first off it would be adorable, ssecond A lyra sized duck could almost swallow you whole.
>>41380677Thanks for the run hoss.....did mom suddenly sense that we evolved again? Also we got horns on our butt skull, how long 'til we get horns on our head to go with our butt skull?
>>41380677PLEASE UPDATE PASTEBINS!
>>41380727Well I've been to Australia so option 1 is nothing new.>a dozen giant-spider-sized rape monsters with pneumatic penises longer than their torsoWHY WOULD ANYONE DO THIS.
>>41380660>That said, it's probably for the best if you don't actually tell anyone what you decided on.>-HEARTHBOUND TYRANT ARACHNE->Species: Forgesworn Grave ArachneYou notice something?Its the best possible compromise, the exact result won and then got augmented with something a lot of people wanted. This basically gives the people who wanted the Forge stuff what they wanted, while giving all the physical buffs that Lyra should get from her lifestyle.
>>41380780never.Only the butt skull gets horns.also, do you know what this means?we grew a coatrack.
I r8 this 8/8 m8 was so gr8 but now got a d8 w/ f8
>>41380809We grew a fuckin' PERCH!
>>41380809No we now have a bird perch.
>>41380805What I meant is that REQM should keep quiet on suspicions that other blessings where exchanged for this and other stuff along those lines.
So who else is hype for the new OP pic?
>>41380826 our shoulder is higher and therefore a better perch.
>>41380677Thanks for running. Is there any chance we get the paste update for Lyra tonight?
>>41380861Well now we have two perches, don't we? One for each of our flight-capable friends.
>>41380851>What I meant is that REQM should keep quiet on suspicions that other blessings where exchanged for thisI don't think any were. Seems more likely he slapped Forge on the regular Tyrant stuff, since it doesn't affect the balance a lot anyway.
>>41380805Iron Tyrant/ Iron King sounds cooler.
>>41380677Thanks for running!Did we increase noticably in overall size?
>>41380693Thanks for playing!>>41380694Sorry! I've got work in the morning. I've got an hour or more for questions, but I'm out of story for the moment!>>41380703Flat tyrant wouldn't have had the metal-ly bits. Armour looking chitin, taller.Sovereign would have had softer (more human) looking chitin. Also taller. It also would have had a crown like tattoo.Hearth would've have veins of metal not only on hr legs and hands, but the skull as well.Grave would've had a more changed skull, gems and the usual.Cinder would've had 'chunky' chitin, resembling magma. Also, a scorched looking dragon skull. Deinos would be bigger, with more 'aggressive' chitin. >>41380712I counted 4 times. Once with everything. Then each time I narrowed the votes down as I found more and more discrepancies.>>41380713>>41380716I'll try and get them done up tomorrow morning before I take off! I'll send a post to twitter when I do!>>41380718Impress smiths and Nin, respectively.>>41380721It is not.
>>41380889You mean Iron Monger, right?
>>41380906>tallerCURSEEEESSSSSSSSWe missed out on becomign as huge as we could.Damn you Hearth voters. Damn you!
800 Posts in almost a 100th of the Hours. Wow.
>>41380906>no information on medical professionalsDifficult-to-treat confirmed.People are going to need temperature treated adamantine bonesaws to give us a proper inspection.
>>41380780It is night on the open road, stars winking overhead as the moon hangs low in the sky. Erics and Nialla sit side by side, lit a ruddy red by the dying embers of the campfire. While Nialla is still sad over her children leaving the forest, she knows that they are all safe. Well, maybe not one. Suddenly, she feels a twist in her gut. Something is wrong. It feels like...a grand change somewhere, plucking her mother's intuition. It can only mean one thing: Her daughter evolved. Again."LYRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
>>41380906So are we taller then Shez now REQM? I hope so
>>41380906So what's Jin's shiny new evo?
>>41380906>taller.How much size did we lose by not being flat Tyrant?
so, we need to see mom again soon, just so she sees us even more evolved that her.
>>41380952Needs to be canon, Fuck i vote yes ot this being canon
