Hey guys sorry about starting late, let me know when you are here
>>43236045Sorry I'm late. I'm replying by phone while hiding it at my desk.
>>43236375>>43236269Is okay, the one that started late was me. Sorry. 2 hours before thread start time i got sleepy and said "eh, its two hours early, i can catch a blink" and here we are...Anyway let's start right away. Last we left them, Eldric, Aritsu and Lyann had gone to visit Grumnir and then the guildhousem and we decided to buy the the cards, including the Dragonfly card.***"Come think about it, where do you get the succubus and incubus cards? Right now, we are interested in their species." -Lyann asks the broker while handing payment and storing the cards in her [Item Box]"A friend often goes to the abandoned foodgeaon south of the city. There used to be a town there, but it was destroyed because of a landslide. The foodgeon is too far away to use regularly, but my friend likes to go there because he says there is less competition.""Thank you very much."Hey, wasn't that sort of a secret? yet this guy just told all that to Lyann without blinking. Her beauty is quite the dangerous weapon, isn't it?"Well, it isn't particularly useful information to us. We need to find them in the wild, right?" -Aritsu wonders aloud"Right.""Uhm? you are looking for wild monsters, why?""We wanted to add a succubus to Eldric's Menagerie" -Lyann answers honestly"Is that so? well, if I hear anything about such a group, I will send the information to you. Simply waiting for you to show up took quite a while this time. Can I have an address?">Give him our house's address>Have him leave a message in the rockitship docks>Other
>>43236518>>Have him leave a message in the rockitship docks
>>43236518>>Give him our house's address>>Have him leave a message in the rockitship docks>>OtherAlso leave a message with the Miel Hegemony Capital Hive.Pay the dwarf extra for the service.
>>43236585>>43236623>>>Have him leave a message in the rockitship docks>>43236623>>>Give him our house's address>>43236623>Also leave a message with the Miel Hegemony Capital Hive.Isn't that in our backyard? isn't that a little embarrasing?>Pay the dwarf extra for the service.***We give him the address of the rockithip docks, and tell him to just leave a message for us by name. Since we own the place, we should be able to use it this way, right? of course, we don't tell him that."Ah, let's show up at home, and then we can go see how the girls are doing?" -says Lyann as we prepare to leave the guild house"I did not know the president was a member of the Adventurer's Guild. Do you go on missions often? I truly did not think you would have the time""You know, we haven't gone on a guild mission in years, actually. Maybe we should take a look at the available missions?">Let's check the missions. Deuis Ex Machina may have a "deal with this group of feral succubus" mission out there, right? yeah, no, that would be too convenient, but we should take a look.>Let's go check on the girls>Other
>>43236725>>Let's check the missions. Deuis Ex Machina may have a "deal with this group of feral succubus" mission out there, right? yeah, no, that would be too convenient, but we should take a look.
>>43236725>Let's check the missions. Deuis Ex Machina may have a "deal with this group of feral succubus" mission out there, right? yeah, no, that would be too convenient, but we should take a look.As for the Miel Capital, we could make their capital Hive into a gargantuan rock-it dreadnaught, and her hive at our home could be the Royal Summer Palatial Hive.
>>43236817>>43236872>>Let's check the missions. Deuis Ex Machina may have a "deal with this group of feral succubus" mission out there, right? yeah, no, that would be too convenient, but we should take a look.>>43236872>As for the Miel Capital, we could make their capital Hive into a gargantuan rock-it dreadnaught, and her hive at our home could be the Royal Summer Palatial Hive.Since its inside a greenhouse, wouldnt it be a winter palace?***We check the billboard and... no, there's no such thing as "I'm drowning in succubus, someone come and take them away!", sadly.Then again, their defense mechanism is to make people amorous. Would someone post something such as "please take them away" to begin with?Anyway, the currently available missions are as follow:The old dragon Alnator has reappeared! strong adventurers required to repel him before he expands his hunting ground into the city!A mission to repel a old dragon, uh? well, there's plenty of strong adventurers in town now.>Go for it>No, we already said we would go pick up the girls.Many years have passed, but I continue looking for my long-lost niece. Rehead, petite, if someone has seen Lyann, please send me a message!Wait... would it be that uncle Lyann mentioned to us once. She was sold into slavery by her aunt and cousins while her uncle was away, right? should we tall her about this? she hasn't noticed the poster yet.>Tell her>Don't tell her. She knows where their house is. If she wanted to meet them, she would have done so years ago.Looking for [Mythical Bettle Hide]. A. Herderz, famous entomologist and botanist, is looking for a rare sample to study.Uhmm... actually, I think we have one of those... which reminds me, we have plenty of materials we could dump on both of our dwarven acquaintances and ask them to make stufff with them.>Deliver the hide to mister A. Herderz>Deliver the hide to our tailor friend>Deliver the hude to our armorsmith friend.<-- grown Stella?
>>43237124by the way, anyone remembers the name of our fabulous dwarven tailor?I really like this artist wolf girls. This one seems good for Stella right now. I like the coat, I imagine Eldric would give her a coat if she HAD TO have a swimsuit "just like Lyann's"She looks happy, soft and cuddly
>>43237124>dragonPick up the mission and pick up Stella and Zoe and take them with us on it.>UncleShow it to Lyann. It should be her choice whether to meet him or not.>HideEh, give it to the guy to study. As a fellow scientist, we should be willing to help his research.
>>43237124>Go for it>Tell her>Deliver the hide to mister A. Herderz
>>43237249>>43237242Nobody remember our dwarven Tailor's name, either?And no comments on the Stella pic/s?***We call Lyann over, and quietly point her to the quest poster. She looks at it with a serious expression, and takes it down without saying anything.We remove the request posters for the hide and the dragon quests, then take them to the counter to confirm that we are taking the mission.Oh, we also sign up Aritsu as an adventurer.Actually, we used to be registered as part of Grumnir's party, the [White Iron Hammer]. Now that we are on our own, the clerks wants to know our party's name.Uhmm...I sort of want to say [Swords & Roses] because we have so many cute girls with us, but my naming sense isn't that great. Maybe something based on our origin? something like [Albion Strikers]? no, actually, only Lyann is a local, right?Uhmm...***Suggestions for party name?Also I like this pic for the Eopolis version of a shadow's uniform
>>43237453Five Fists of ScienceBut a more serious name, Swords of Light sounds like a local adventurer group name.
>>43237453swords lightlike >>43237567suggested
>>43237604>swords light>>43237567>Swords of Light***"Alright, please sign us up as the [Swords of Light], then.""I am going to use s staff, right?" -Aritsu wonders to herself"And I don't remember ever using a sword in the first place.""It's just a name.""Now I want a sword...""...me too.""...it's just a name."Well, having signed up, Aritsu gets her brand new adventurer card, and we update ours. She is a F Rank adventurer, but since we are B rank, its fine if she is with us.Incidentally, both Zoe and Stella are S rank... we stopped climbing adventurer ranks a couple of years ago, while they go to the dungeon semi-regularly to get various materials.This means that if they are with us, we can take S ranked missions... this means they would technically be the party bosses... let's not think about it too much.Alright, with that done, let's go pick them up.We leave the guildhouse and head home, then [Treestride] from the apple tree in the back garden all the way to one of the trees in the keep's inner garden.The staff welcomes us home, and informs us that the girls have gone into the dungeon with our grandfather.Well, chances are, they are quite safe. The old man could bulldozer his way up and down all 200+ floors of the dungeon on his own, and they have Portia with them, so I imagine they will stick to the less dangerous floors, right?Right. They'll just fight some low-level monsters like kobolds and mimics.Right? we can trust in grandfather's common sense...We can trust in Stella's comm--We can trust is Zoe's common sense! there!It is almost dinner time, and knowing grandfather and Stella, they should be about to come back out any moment now. I can't decide if Stella's gluttony is granfather's fault, or if those two just match each other perfectly.1/?
>>43237853Ah, in the meanwhile, we could show Aritsu around the keep, or we could go to our room until dinner is ready.Well, even though we have a room here, we have never used it before. Even so, it IS our room, and we should probably at least check it out, right?>Let's show Aritsu around>Let's check our room>Other
>>43237915>>Let's show Aritsu around
>>43237915>Let's check our roomWe need to grind our levels more. Grandpa should no longer be at the head of the Lightbringer House. We can't afford his shortsighted leadership any longer.He's a good person but he is a foolish old man where it concerns global politics and the need for nation and regional scale research and infrastructure projects.He deactivated and stopped maintenance on the Keep's defenses, showing that he is irresponsible. Euphy and her dad should have stopped him.This is as much their fault as it is his.
>>43238005>>43238068Need a tie breaker. That reminds me, Okaba was looking into repairing the teleport systems, but he only succeeded in using them for long distance travel, should we bump short distance teleport up the list of things to do?
>>43238154Yes, but we still need a lot of things done at the same time, not the least of which is grinding more levels so that we can effectively fight against the ERRORS and bumpin up the levels of our little siblings so that they're better able to survive the war.Also because MP pools are determined during youth, and they'll have smaller pools if we wait too long.
>>43238154i think your gonna have to flip a coin
>>43238442Alright.***So, we go and check our room... actually, Lyann has her own room on a nearby hallway.As romantic- comedy-like that it would be to wander around in the night to eachother's room, she seems quite uninterested on her room, except maybe as a place to store some clothes.Well, as for our own room... it's quite nice. It faces west so we can see a sizeable part of the city as well as the shore and the sea, and the light comes in quite softly in the morning and lingers to the last moment in the evening.We have a walk-in closet, though it would be more accurate to say it is a small, attached room. There is one extra, small room attached to ours for us to do whatever we want with...Maybe a bath? we could use some basic low level magical items to produce water and dispose of waste, so its not as if we need to install pipes and such... uhmm... Ah, we have three smaller closets. The bed is quite large, if not quite king-size... if we asked to have it changed for a larger one, would nana give us a weird look?Uhmm... maybe we could storage books in the extra room. We are still in the room when a maid knocks on the door to let us know that dinner will be served soon, and that grandfather has returned."Hmm... it is a nice room, but we have to go to the dining room, now..." -moans out Aritsu while we show her the room from behind"In a minute.""P-president...!" -she cries out as we insistently show her the room from behindA bit later, we go into the dinning room to greet grandfather and pick up the girls.......Pörtia's level is at 50 now.Hey, what happened to sticking to the starting floors!? what happened to common sense?No, we can't blame Zoe, we had two leveling addicts in the party, right?I guess Portia will grow up while sleeping, then? which job did she... ah, she's an archmage now... so she went wizard -> arcanist -> archmageWell, at least they had the good sense to keep her in the back.1/?
>>43239048"Why... how far down did you go into the dungeon, grandfather?""Only to about floor 70 or so. The little miss said she wanted to level up to help find her mom, so that's what we did."Right. If it is something she wished for, we can't nor should, blame anyone, right?Yes, Portia was just worried and wanted to help us find her mom. This makes perfect sense.Guess we will take her shopping for clothes after she grows tomorrow morning. Or maybe we should take her to our friend, master Tazar, and have something made specially for her.She said she wanted to help, but, should we let her come with us when we are fighting, or ask her to do research work, instead?>Let her come with us>She's still a child, so let's keep her safe in the labs.>Other
>>43239149>>Let her come with us
>>43239149>OtherKeep her in the labs. Not because she's just a child, but because we need more scientists who can research and engineer a dimensional probe to send into the Black Moon.We can build battle golems and requisition strong fighters from the Empire, but scientists and engineers aren't a commodity we can buy.
>>43239232>>43239181And as usual we have a tie :PWell guys, I know it was short today, but let's end here for today. I skipped lunch so im starving and want to go cook something.I'll see you on sunday, but I will still come back in a while to read any comments or suggestions, and answer questions.
>>43239397Is grandpa still massively more powerful than Eldric?Is the plan to have Portia and Miel level in a party with us and Mako no longer on the schedule?Have we been leveling the harpies to increase their Int and Wis?
>>43239397alright thanks for running
>>43239478>Is grandpa still massively more powerful than Eldric?Quite. It was his "job" for decades to just level up, and now its his hobby while we do a lot of other stuff>Is the plan to have Portia and Miel level in a party with us and Mako no longer on the schedule?I dont know, is it? I think its okay, but apparently just up to a point so they're not going to war with us?>Have we been leveling the harpies to increase their Int and Wis?No, we should
Alright, how should we get the Dreadnaught Job? We need to die once to get it, and if Lyann or Mako or Aritsu find out about our intentions, I don't know I they'll let us. Maybe we should ask Euphy and the retired demigod for help?Also we need to ask them more about the [ERROR]s and about the Black Moon.
>>43239651>I dont know, is it? I think its okay, but apparently just up to a point so they're not going to war with us?It was to help Miel get her Racial levels up, for us to spend more time with her, and to help her get over her instinctive fear of Arachnids.We should still do it, not just to get more levels for us but to also level Miel to 100 so she can transform into a larger form.>grandpa still has more levelsIt doesn't surprise me, but it still annoys me. I wish we could find XP multiplier items or enchantments to help us level up faster.
>>43239764Alright guys, I ate something so we could continue for a bit if you are still around. Let me know, will check in a few minutes
>>43240593I'm still around.
>>43240988Looks lke you're the only one, so let's end here after all.Ill see you on sunday, hopefully
