A dark-armored prince sighs as this stronghold of his uprising falls. What his mood is, none can say, thanks to his obscured face. Only a few of the Emperor's Flight remain, but... But they answered to someone he cannot trust. He sends all but the leader of their few remaining number to neighboring towns still loyal to his cause, rousing more rebels to act.His younger brother grows increasingly anxious, but now is no longer the time for such things. He rushes into the city of Barst.A woman with an ancestral bow and a stolen birthright takes action, accompanied by a heavily-armored knight who a dear friend claims was once a waste of space.Our heroine and her own subgroup continue towards the city, but are most definitely going to be late to the party. Here's hoping that they can make do without a Hero, some wolves, some nomads and everything they have that can fly. She has a necromancer to deliver, after all.>A. Take control of Prince Lars (warning: MAY end in fighting your usual allies, and Lars is a VERY powerful Sage)>B. Take control of Prince Garrus>C. Take control of Ex-duchess Victoria>D. Take control of Reese>E. Take control of Ellen (may not be as exciting)>F. Be someone else (specify)20 minute decision time.
>>42803717>B. Take control of Prince Garrus
>>42803603Glad that's working out for ya.
>>42803744>>42803895You and Yvette both noticed the various wyvern riders heading out in various directions, though she was the one to address the crowd over it."Undoubtedly, they have been sent to gather reinforcements from elsewhere in the region. We'll need to act quickly and secure the city unless we wish for things to get... Very dangerous and bloody. Archers, recall that Derrick, who was not spotted among the leaving Emperor's Flight members, carries Iote's Shield, so your arrows may end up doing... Significantly less than normally anticipated."She was in a fight with General Derrick earlier this very battle, and she lost quite handily, but was still insistent on helping you lead this leg of the fight after a quick patching-up from Nat.>A. That's cool with you>B. Ask her to take it easy>C. Bench Yvette outright. She'd listen, but wouldn't be happy about it.>D. Write-in?>E. Express no opinion on the matter
>>42804194>B. Ask her to take it easyA dead guard is as good as no guard.
>>42804194>>B. Ask her to take it easy
>>42804223>>42804241"Uh... Yvette..."The paladin turns towards you, "what is it, Prince Garrus?""Just... Take it, er, take it a bit easier, alright? I'd hate for anything to happen to you, after what almost went down with Derrick..."She closes her eyes and sighs. "I've sworn to spend my life protecting you. I can't very easily just... Stop doing so. However, should it mean staying alive, I won't overexert myself.""Uh... O-okay, thanks..." You aren't really sure if that was a yes or a no, but you don't feel like now is the time to clarify.Yvette sees to it that Victoria is covered by Reese, Gorman, Laurina... Basically, one of your most important archers should you NEED to fight Lars is covered.Quidel speaks to his brother, Nahuel, about revenge and the like, and they ride off together, while you and Salia stick with Yvette.The three of you rush through the town, quickly finding yourselves accosted by about half a dozen rebels, mostly soldier-class with a single Halberdier. Yvette points a lance at them threateningly and commands, "lay down your weapons and stand aside!"They don't, at least not immediately.>A. Prepare yourself>B. Try to talk to them! (specify dialogue)>C. Attack!>D. Write-in?
>>42804502>B. Try to talk to them! (specify dialogue)I do not wish to hurt my own countries men, please either stand down or join us.
>>42804613"Please, all of you, I... I don't want to keep fighting my countrymen like this! Just... Please listen to Yvette and stop this..."The halberdier refuses on the behalf of her little group, saying, "keep talking while we stick your heads on a spear for Prince Lars!"Reluctantly, you ready your Regal Axe as the Halberdier approaches you... and is quickly interrupted by Yvette stepping between you two.Salia fires arrows at the five soldiers, shooting down one as the rest approach her, bar one who has taken an interest in you.>A. Help Salia>B. Help Yvette>C. Take care of this guy first>D. Flee>E. Write-in?
>>42804854>B. Help Yvette>C. Take care of this guy first
>>42805003Well, er... Hopefully they'll disperse if their subleader is taken care of!You face the halberdier alongside Yvette, and the soldier after you in particular joins in. In a twist of fate, you're the one who swings the fatal axe down upon the halberdier as Yvette finishes off the soldier who was after you!In a much less pleasant twist of fate, your idea was clearly incorrect, and your sister cries out in immense pain as three of the other soldiers stab the inexperienced archer at once.All of this happened in a manner of seconds, but had you spent them differently... Gods, you find yourself shaking your head. Now isn't the time for doubts! You're filled with some untold newfound rush of energy as you swing into Salia's assailants, turning towards your sister and holding her up as she bleeds out in your arms.>A. Demand that Yvette get her out of here>B. Try to find her help yourself>C. Go apeshit>D. Cry>E. Freeze up>F. Write-in?
>>42805133>A. Demand that Yvette get her out of here>B. Try to find her help yourselfFuck.That was not a good idea.
>>42805289Those are sort of mutually-exclusive choices.
>>42805133>A. Demand that Yvette get her out of here>C. Go apeshit
>>42805330Ok then>A. Demand that Yvette get her out of hereWith a side of>C. Go apeshit
>>42805412>>42805392"Yvette, get Salia out of here!"This is... the second time you've raised your voice in recent history, but this time you feel nothing but urgency as Yvette quickly forces a healing concoction down your sister's throat, hopefully preventing her death for long enough for her wounds to be healed."Don't you do anything foolish either, Prince Garrus."You nod resolutely, gripping your axe as Yvette and Salia ride off."I heard Salia screaming!" you hear Quidel say as he and his brother approach you, the same you who is currently in the midst of cutting down a mercenary-class who raised his sword towards you threateningly."Is... He alright?" Nahuel asks, but Quidel's face is only filled with worry.He rides up to you, dismounts, and grabs your shoulders."Where's Salia?! Is she alright, Garrus? What happened?!">A. Push him off of you and carry on>B. Don't do thatAnd...>C. She's fine>D. Tell him where she and Yvette went>E. Remain silent>F. Write-in?
>>42805499>B. Don't do that>D. Tell him where she and Yvette went
>>42805533>>42805554You get a grip on yourself for a moment, breathing in and explaining. "Salia was with Yvette and I, and these guys with spears came... Some of them got to Salia, but..."And he shakes you. "You two let Salia get hurt?! She has no way to defend herself up close, you KNOW that!""Brother, things like this happen in the heat of battle," Nahuel replies before turning towards you, "which way did they go?""Yvette? Uh... That way, I think... You're technically under my command, but... You can go see her if you like and they don't say no." You point, and Quidel is quick to hop onto his horse again and ride off."Far from the battlefield is the best place for him..." Nahuel reflects as he rides up to you, "he has the heart of a noble warrior, but no common sense when he's been angered.">A. That was your fault>B. That wasn't your faultAnd...>C. Keep picking off rebels with Nahuel>D. Go to Lars yourself, right away>E. Find Victoria's party
>>42805646>A. That was your fault>C. Keep picking off rebels with NahuelI assume option A means garrus's fault?
>>42805646>A. That was your fault>C. Keep picking off rebels with NahuelGarrus it's time to become a man
>>42805661>>42805715"Yeah, that was... I should've been watching her, but I've been really concerned with Yvette lately, and I wasn't thinking, and...""You needn't justify it to me. Things happen, and we can only hope she survives."You and Nahuel start fighting through remaining rebels in the city, and unlike your sister, as a Nomadic Trooper, Nahuel is perfectly capable with a sword at short range.He sees the form of a Wyvern Lord approaching your duo in particular, aiming and firing at them... Only for the arrow hitting them barely seeming to faze rider or wyvern."It was... Worth a shot," Nahuel says as he switches to his Steel Sword, Derrick having appropriated a Shockstick alongside his previous Brave Sword. He is also accompanied by a rebel of the General class equipped with a not-so-ordinary Ridersbane and approaching as quick as his weighed-down legs can carry him."Prince Garrus, I've never heard of you being so... Violent," Derrick remarks, referring to your sudden influx of kills to your name, "I... Had to see it to believe it." He closes his eyes for a moment, shaking his bald head and turning to his companion, "Allow me to face Prince Garrus myself."The armored fellow nods and turns on Nahuel with his aforementioned lance.>A. Give Derrick your full attention>B. Take care of the General for Nahuel>C. Say something (specify)>D. Write-in action>E. Flee
>>42805967>B. Take care of the General for Nahuel
>>42805967>A. Give Derrick your full attentionThis time with 50% less chance of someone dying!
>>42806027FUCK. I meant to go with option B. I didn't know you could fuck up this bad.
>>42806059You wouldn't be the first anon.
>>42806002>>42806059You immediately turn your Regal Axe on the armored fellow, knowing exactly what sort of disaster his weapon choice would spell for Quidel's brother. You're not sure you've ever actually turned your Regal Axe on a heavily-armored or a horse-riding opponent, so it's never come up, but... It is designed to be effective towards them, not unlike a Rapier or other local equivalents."Never mind, then," Derrick says, midway through dismounting to duel you, "not one for flashy honorable duels, are we?" He returns to the saddle of his wyvern, pointing his Shockstick and attempting to jolt you. Meanwhile, Nahuel has finished off the General via the sizable hole you just cleaved in his armor.A few more rebels of assorted classes approach, though Stefyn, Dama, and several Garou coincidentally end up in your area at the same time.A lot of people are fighting a lot of people.>A. Focus on taking down Derrick>B. Insist everyone stick close>C. Keep attacking rebels>D. Write-in action>E. okay ready to duel now

>>42806222>A. Focus on taking down DerrickI trust our guys.
>>42806261>>42806366You stare down the Wyvern Lord on his mount as chaos erupts around you, clutching your axe.He apologetically shocksticks a wolf who tried to attack him, leaving you a perfect opportunity to leap at him swinging.He seems a bit caught off-guard, him and his dragon both being slightly damaged by your axe, and you manage to dodge both of his immediate retaliating Shockstick strikes.Of course, you had to get a bit away from him in doing so, giving him a perfect chance to ready his Brave Sword as he speeds towards you.>A. Try to hit him en route!>B. Focus on dodging!>C. Try to vanish into a crowd>D. Get cut up four times straight>E.

Octo did I get her killed
>>42806513Going ot be pissed if so since it was only you voting and you fucked up like a retard and that gets the rest of the players punished.
>>42806509>B. Focus on dodging!Brave Swords are brutal.
>>42806509>B. Focus on dodging!
>>42806552You think I don't feel bad already?Where were you all to point it out
>>42806588At my fucking job.
>>42806513Well, as a lighter form of what >>42806552 said... Since it was only one person who decided her fate, I decided that it wouldn't be fair to off her, so I threw on the second post where picking the right thing could save her at a temporary cost.If she'd have died from something so easily, then it would've been a "scripted to happen sometime during this battle" demise anyway, but I'll say outright that I didn't intend for it to happen, and figured losing your Jeigan for the battle was punishment enough for getting your Est fucked up but saving her.
>>42806604>losing your Jeigan for the battle was punishment enough for getting your Est fucked up but saving her.....Wut?
>>42806617Archetype terminology, named after characters who are considered the first example of the type in the series.In the games proper, the Jeigan was an old prepromoted guy who was really strong, but had absolutely shit growths and, unless you got absurdly lucky, would start to be overshadowed by the early-midgame (see: Yvette after a dose of Dracozombie breath. I didn't make her TOO weak and shitty since I like her, but the sentiment is there and she's known it awhile).Est was this girl who joined really late at a low level with a lot of potential though, ironically, she wasn't worth it at all in the remakes, since other units were made SO much better than they once were. While the OG was a pegasus knight, they've been different classes and genders throughout the franchise's history.
>>42806686>(see: Yvette after a dose of Dracozombie breath. I didn't make her TOO weak and shitty since I like her, but the sentiment is there and she's known it awhile).Wait that weakened her? Shouldn't healing magic be able to fix that?
Whoops, meant to have that Brave Sword in this post.>>42806554>>42806578Okay, you have to put all of your effort into dodging, leaving you too winded after his four-strike assault to retaliate before he can pull away.Stefyn, apparently wielding a Wind Edge, takes his attention off of you with a strike the guy at least feels enough to turn his attention to the Swordmaster. He's only fast enough to get two (failed) strikes in before Stefyn retaliates, though, and Dama also gets in on the "fun."You see Nahuel in the distance, drawing the fire of a squad of archers. One of Corneria's magic-users is healing him and his horse whenever they take damage from one of them, but the last one standing thinks to shoot the anonymous healer square in the face.>A. Focus on Derrick!>B. Go for that random archer!>C. Write-in action/dialogue
>>42806793>B. Go for that random archer!
>>42806793>A. Focus on Derrick!If we end up not getting B I'd like to know what would have happened.
>>42806782It's a... Bit hard to explain and not fully understood in-universe, but tl;dr Deadly Breath brings things it contacts closer to death. Admittedly the rules aren't entirely consistent or well thought-out. Remember that Yancy's arm was fucked up so bad they had to remove it?
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>42806880>>42806816
>>42806979You immediately book it towards that archer and cut him down before he even sees you coming.Nahuel gives you a wave of appreciation before riding closer and drawing his sword."So we're all facing this Wyvern Lord, are we? Iote's Shield or not, I would like in on this."Noticing himself getting surrounded, Derrick and his ride figure that the wisest thing they can do is return to the skies... Where a horde of Dracozombies take flight. Bolse, you figure.He readies his Brave Sword and flies towards one of them.>A. Look for the magical kids>B. Look for Victoria and co.>C. Look for Lars>D. Keep watching how this plays out
>>42807052Er... Renewed time limit, unless someone posts before this goes through.
>>42807052Well, i'm new here and am too lazy to read the older ones... What one do you think will be the most fun?
>>42807291I've been trying not to post but>B. Look for Victoria and co.
>>42807052>>B. Look for Victoria and co.
>>42807347>>42807351You seek out Victoria and her current companions, perhaps wondering if they've found Lars yet.What you find instead is Gorman, apparently leading Reese, Laurina, and Victoria in the middle of a heated encounter with several enemy Heroes.Surprisingly enough, both groups are in a stalemate until you show up and turn the tides (in your friends' favor, of course)."Such powerful opponents..." Victoria says as she shoots a distracted swordsman, "it likely means our primary opponent draws near.""Just stick behind me and riddle Lars with holes, duchess!" Reese boasts as he bodychecks and knocks someone out, retrieving the lance he apparently dropped in the confusion.You look up briefly, offhandedly. Derrick's still fighting Dracozombies that gradually pour out from some alley.>A. Mention Reese's poor magical Resistance>B. Let the man dream>C. Say something else?>D. Be silent>E. Write-in
>>42807517>A. Mention Reese's poor magical ResistanceThis time with 51% less death!

>>42807557>>42807602"Reese, your resistance to magic isn't very good at all. A blast of Excalibur would tear you apart in your armor."Reese frowns. "Yes, I... Suppose you're right, but I was tasked with guarding Victoria, so...""You're dismissed from doing so. Focus on protecting anyone who's been injured." You vocally direct Reese to where you sent Yvette and Salia."Should we go too?" Laurina asks you on her and Gorman's behalf."Also, keep in mind that the Deadlord Bovis, he has quite the resistance," Gorman says.Victoria nods, "yes, I remember... Back under Aum, he shrugged off flames with little more than shedding his mask.">A. Send Gorman and Laurina off too>B. They can stayAnd...>C. Find Bovis discreetly>D. Call out for the Deadlord>E.

>>42807868"You guys, too. Just... Help people out while Victoria and I find the magic twins and Bovis."The couple(?) nods and goes of to do their own thing, as does Reese what you asked."Alright, so... It looks like the Dracozombies are coming from over there, and I doubt Bovis is far from Bolse..." Victoria leads you through the city's alleys, finding an empty, hidden-away lot where Bolse and Bovis are. No sign of Logan and Katina, but a half-formed Dracozombie is cut down by Derrick just as you and Victoria show up.Bovis does not hesitate to attack the Wyvern Lord.>A. Follow his example>B. Order Bovis to stop attacking>C. Just keep Bolse safe>D. Ask Victoria what to do>E. Write-in

>>42808127"Please, surrender, General Derrick! Just end this before more people get hurt!""Not up to me! You'll need to speak to your brother about that one." He parries one of Bovis' strikes before quickly retaliating with four of his own, resulting in the Deadlord sustaining a lot of nasty wounds. He doesn't seem to mind, aside from waving his sword around ineffectually at Derrick as he drops to the ground.The Wyvern Lord looks down at the Deadlord, "er... Tell your creator to please stop sending Dracozombies." Bovis neutrally signs so much, and Derrick turns his attention towards you."What do you want?">A. Take him up on that duel>B. You're just here for Bovis and Bolse>C. Attack!>D. Write-in?
Should we duel him on grounds that he leaves the fight if he loses?
>>42808370You can offer. No word on how he'll take it, but you can offer.
>>42808395I'm not voting alone again
>>42808426I can't make the update without at least one vote.
>>42808446Like, that's how quests work. Unless an update is explicitly an interrupted continuation of the previous one, I need votes in order to. Actually make them.Everyone puts their money on bad ideas sometimes, but rolling with the punches is best for the thread.
>>42808498Okay fine.Offer a non lethal duel like he had with Gorman, on grounds he leaves if he loses
>>42808532"Well, since... Nobody here is in any danger like Nahuel before, I... I was willing to take you up on that duel."Derrick nods, and you see Bovis, continuing to sign even as he's literally unable to stand, communicate what you say to Bolse. His eyes widen in concern.Derrick pauses and nods, dismounting. "I trust your friend not to interfere, then."Victoria nods. "No, no, I understand the importance of resting the nation's fate on shows of machismo."You draw your axe, he draws his Brave Sword, and Bolse blindsides him with a blast of Luna, knocking him the hell out right then and there. Derrick's wyvern stares in confusion, but the deaf necromancer loudly (by his usually-quiet standards, so in other words at an ordinary tone of voice) explains, "no time... Katina went to talk to Lars! Logan followed!"Bolse quickly gives you directions to the primary government building of the city, which is, as Victoria guessed, a short distance away.>A. Hurry!>B. Bring Bolse!>C. Bring Bolse and Bovis!>D. Bring Derrick?>E. Nah, just get back to the main forces>F. Write-in

>>42808703>>42808730"C'mon, guys! Everyone, let's go!" You demand, gesturing to show that, yes, you mean Bovis and Bolse too."I cannot walk.""I didn't ask!"That being said, you do nervously pet Derrick's wyvern before approaching Bovis, helping carry him on your back. You've got more strength than people would give you credit for, so you grab Bolse's hand, start running in the direction the Deadlord mentioned, and find yourself face-to-face with Lars, his hair showing its natural blue as he stands over Katina, who pleads with him. Logan and a pair of Bael intimidate away any rebels who might have bright ideas about his charge's current position."Lars, I know you're a good person... A-and we're finding Paula! Princess Eva, she's probably already got her by now, and she's... She's in this region!""She's... What? Why is she here?""She's, they... We think it's her, anyway... Anyway, a necromancer who looks about her age has been spotted all around ever since we tried to get to Heim, has been attacking loyalist towns and cities with undead in Cord!""So he's turned Paula into a weapon? I... Gh, why wasn't I even informed there WAS another Necromancer in the region?!">A. Interrupt>B. Watch this play out awhile longer>C. Write-in?

>>42808889>>A. InterruptWhy haven't I've been informed about this as well?
>>42808999Team Garrus did find out awhile ago (namely when Zoe returned after an offscreen battle with her).
>>42808889>B. Watch this play out awhile longer
>>42809012Oh. Well, shit. I thought Garrus also didn't know since Ellen didn't tell him anything initially.
>>42808938>>42809014"So you really didn't know! Then... Then please, let this end! No one wants to be doing this, and... And you'd be welcomed back home, I'm certain!"All things considered, you probably would be extremely lenient on Lars if he surrendered, but you don't butt in quite yet."But if that happened, everything I'd worked towards could crash down... Taking control of Neir is vital.""Lars, I... I see how important this is to you," Katina says, "but... I still trust you so much. I want to be by your side, whatever that is!"Logan turns around, "Wh-what're you saying, Lady Katina?!"Lars shakes his head. "I was younger than you when I made... A very poor decision. I won't allow you to go down the same road over a childish infatuation.""L-Lars, please, I... It's not about that, it's... I know the sort of person you are, and...""Logan, get her out of here."Logan nods at the request of the Sage, picking up Katina while she kicks and shouts and literally dragging her away, accompanied by his Bael.Bolse is very confused, as Bovis' current status leaves him unable to sign."Sorry about that..." Lars says to you and Victoria before opening a spellbook. "I take it you want to get to business quickly?"You set Bovis down, finally giving him a chance to "speak" to Bolse.>A. Yeah>B. Ask about his magical armor>C. No>D. Write-in dialogue
>>42809188>the necromancer is likely Paula based on the several sightings, we've dispatched men to Capture her, and she's likely in our possession already.Now why are you doing this?

>>42809229>>42809236>>42809303"Why would I WANT to? The necromancer we've been fighting is... Probably Paula, by a LOT of people's accounts, and by now Eva's surely captured her. Katina was right about that. The only reason I sought you out is because Bolse mentioned that Katina followed you!""...""What're you working so hard for, Lars? Why are you fighting us?"As he starts to say, Victoria aims her bow to try to hit him. In his completely-unarmored state, he dodges effortlessly and throws her into a wall with a simple blast of Elwind, before continuing, "if I may." He clears his throat. "The answer may disappoint you. I consider myself a loving person, considerate, pragmatic... And have known since I was Paula's age that this is a vile place, filled with bandits, petty political squabbles, brutes put in charge. It was only when I traveled to Dain that I learned that this problem extends across the damned continent.""S-so, it's just... Power, is all there is to it?" Victoria says, getting up and clutching Ronan, her bow."And who are the ones supporting the Dory family? You're acting like you're all so noble, but you'll align with vicious pirates just to one-up your enemies.">A. That's different>B. Be silent>C. Retort! (write-in)>D. That wasn't your ideas!

>>42809492>C. Retort! (write-in)This is coming from the one who turned a child into a necromancer.We didn't start this fight, and we've been sparing everyone we can, all this blood is on your hands Lars. Don't paint me as the bad one here.Father is dead because your war. Our sister stabbed by your rebels, the Wolfman tribe in chaos because of your necromancers. I know you're not a bad man personally but this war is yours and all the innocent blood is your responsibility.What good have you done lars? How are you any better than the bandits you talk about?

okay trying something here with my hypocritical-ass connection>>42809624"W-well, you're still the one who turned Bolse here into a Necromancer!""I didn't. He was trained by... I don't know who trained him, except that they're connected to Eva's father.""R-regardless, we've been trying to keep things right, while you've let your fair share of horrible things happen for the sake of your grab for power!"Lars flinches slightly, not having expected you to continue. "Well... Still, you're one to talk about standing idly by, when-""You called me out on that first! Our dad, he's dead because of this!""And I'm glad for that. He was the worst of this 'might-makes-right'-""-and rebels working with you impaled Salia! OUR sister, Lars! I don't even know if she's still alive right now, but that's going to be on your hands, too! Your little ploy with the Garou, they lost their matriarch and a respected public figure, all thanks to your stirring things up!""The Tarvosians condemned them to those mountains alongside OUR ancestors! So I've heard, this, at the damn least, has caused this burnt bridge to finally start being mended!""Lars, I... I know you're not a bad person! Only one Fire Dragon was still even trying to fight, and seemed to be working on her own, so you have compassion, but... Things like letting Lord Phineas become a Deadlord, allowing Victoria to rot and suffer for years, and then throwing her into someplace even worse until she agreed to support you!""I saved her from execution!""Even then! Y-you're... You're a hypocrite! If you want to make things right, then stop going about it like this! You're not set down this path!"Lars is silent a moment, before closing his eyes. "You're right... Maybe I have done horrible things, but... I'll be remembered for what it resulted in!">A. Can't dodge forever. Keep attacking.>B. Lars, you've lost. Please>C. Remain silent>D. Write-in action/dialogue
>>42810294>>B. Lars, you've lost. Please
>>42810294>>D. Write-in action/dialogueYou want a legacy? You want to be remembered! If you wanted a statue commemorating your greatness, I'll have one built back at home. But what you're doing in order to be remembered has caused so much pain. What's the point of it all, when it's only causing heartache between your family and friends?
>>42810326>>42810334>>42810374"Lars, you've lost... Please, just... Don't keep this up. S-Surrender, please... The legacy you'll be leaving behind if you keep fighting... It's only causing heartache, perpetuating a war that ended eight years ago."You run out of steam and return to your usually mousy self, but Lars looks at the ground, closes his eyes, shakes his head and sighs. "There... Really is no benefit to my continuing here, unless I plan on killing every last one of you. All I can do is... Is sit and wait until reinforcements arrive."Lars resists all attempts at capturing him, even without even attempting to hide. Your brother's a speed demon without his armor. It's part of what made "Mimon" famous."They'll be coming soon," he semi-smugly reassures everyone from time to time, trading dirty looks with General Derrick as he and Gorman drink and try to catch up in a tavern.Little did he know that a certain group that had separated from this one a few days ago was at work preventing what he's so certain of.A male garou jokes to a tall blonde, "and here I thought we'd miss out on all the real action," elbowing the Heroine affectionately.>To be continued next threadI am so so sorry for the technical difficulties, and the ending would've gone on for longer if it weren't for them.Thank you so much for sticking around, and as always our ask.fm and twitter are qmgrandflocto.I'll be around to answer questions, provided my internet doesn't fuck itself again.
I wanna say we're closing out the second act here, with Lars' defeat and all. Here's hoping I can deliver on these last few however many threads of Ellen's adventure.Citing the overall prologue as her time in Tarvos Valley, which ended on the note of her first promotion, and the first act concluding with her escape from Aum/reuniting with the others/hooking up with Zoe/promoting a second time/introducing a lot of new characters in the span of five-odd threads.The defeat of the longest-lasting antagonist so far AND the impending promotion of Garrus seems like a pretty good place to say "end of act 2," or at least within the next few threads.
Thanks for running Octo.Do you like to bet on which options we choose? Are you usually right?What quests do you follow
>>42810617Sometimes I have a pretty good idea of what's going to happen, but I'm still surprised plenty of times (be it for better or worse), especially thanks to the wildcard of write-ins almost always being available.I used to follow this one DBZ-themed quest with an absurdly overpowered protagonist, but I sort of stopped being able to keep up with it awhile before Grandflaw and I started this one.Thanks for playing.
>>42810659Was it possible to talk lars down 100%
>>42810682I never want to say "no" outright, but the answer is pretty often "I certainly couldn't think of anything and neither could anyone playing."He'll probably chill a bit for his baby sister when Team Eva saves the day.
>>42810720Looking forward to it
I would've ended the thread on the note of Eva+the rest returning and however Garrus greets her would be up to the thread, but that would've cluttered the last post when I had to shove everything important into one last post.Already I can see that it's for the best that I didn't do that, if only because thread 40 is going to be back to Ellen and the rest anyway and having them show up would remove a lot of the suspense/guarantee a success.It will be entirely possible for Ellen and co. to fuck up immensely/only partially succeed, is my point, and the love interest remains the only person I can guarantee the survival of.
>>42810834I'll try not to kill anyone
