Alright guys, want to start right where we left off, going back to the ship, or the day after?
>>43982729Going back to the ship. We have lots of things to do. Also, are we returning the Dungeon Heart to see what happens or not?
>>43982761Anon, why are you in such a rush to not get things done?We have a mountain of things to do that we've ignored for years in-game.Even with the Academy's labs open to us, we haven't tried to recreate or use our chemical engineering knowledge.
>>43982868>Also, are we returning the Dungeon Heart to see what happens or not? It seems we are taking it to a different cave when possible.>>43982901>Even with the Academy's labs open to us, we haven't tried to recreate or use our chemical engineering knowledge.I feeñ its because, unlike in our modern world, you can't just buy chemicals at a supplier down town whenever you need. Its hard to get sulphur, its hard to get fucking copper, its nearly impossible to get goddamn flasks unless we make them ourselves.It will take years to get the basic infraestructure to make proper flasks availableSo anyway>Morning after>That evening>Other
>>43982868Things to do:Experiment with the Dungeon Heart- see what happens if it's returned to a cavePut the Dungeon Heart in our lab back in Albion so that our lab can resume the experiments that were interrupted when our last Dungeon Heart was stolen.Examine the different Evolutions that the Harpies have undergone and begin cataloging them.Check in with our majordomo about the staffing at our manors.Inform our lab partners that we have gotten a new Dungeon Heart.Order new clothes from Master Tazar and weapons/armor from Grumnir for our harpies.See if Lyra can speak with Pinchers and Squidward.
>>43983060>That eveningAs for equipment, we haven't even invested in the making of precision tools and glass making.That's what I'm talking about: we haven't even started on trying to build the infrastructure and precision tools needed to use our modern knowledge and training in the past several years.What happened to making trade deals with the Black Lakes? Or putting out flyers at Adventurer Guilds for flask drops to see if they're all the same?
>>43983255>we haven't even invested in the making of precision tools and glass making.This>>43983172>See if Lyra can speak with Pinchers and Squidward.Can you talk with your dog? she can probably give them simple orders, but so can you. Well, she probably can read their body language, at least.Remind me, who do we want to feed how for what end? I think it wasSensually curvy - Blue HarpyFit towards curvy - Nina and RoseFit towards slim - AdriannaSlim - Hawk Harpy (sniper)***Later in the evening, we talk with the kitchen staff to have the harpies feed in this or that manner during dinner. Of course, we have plenty of food supplies we looted from the dungeon yesterday, so it isn't a problem."Brother, I want you to play with us." -Stella is following us around in the kitchen"Who us?""Stella, Zoe, and Atroma. We wanna play with brother.""You should mention yourself at the end, Stella.""Why?""It's good manners.""If I do, will you play with us?""What do you want to play?""Fetch!""What do everyone else wants to play?""I dunno."*sigh* "You can't decide what everyone will play all by yourself. Go an ask properly, alright?""Then you'll play with us?""Sure""Yaay!" -the moccha-colored puppy (she's a wolf, really) runs off for a bit"Eldric?" -Mako comes into the kitchen looking for us"Yes? oh, what is that?" -we look at something behind her with a surprised expression!"What?" -the princess looks back for a momentSo we steal a kiss as she turns around again"Eldric!" -she says as she turns bright red"Uhmm... Mako is cute when she blushes." "...meanie..." -she says softly as she blushes deeper and lowers her face a little bit, hands on her lap"It is Mako's fault, for being so pretty.""...meanie.""Did you want something?""Ah! Aritsu and Zoe were talking about the pool. Next time, can you take me along?""Of course. I look forward to seeing Mako in a swimsuit.""Ah... alright.""Is it alright?""Yes, because it's Eldric"1/?
>>43983495"Well, now I have to kiss you.""Wh- why!?""Because you are before me, I have to kiss you.""..."We lean down to give her a little kiss. Afterwards, she runs off, bright red.As we are leaving the kitchen, we run into Portia, Zoe, Atroma and Stella."We want to play chinese checkers!" -declares Stella"...I don't know how to play, though..." -says Portia softlySo, we spent the time until dinner playing with them.***So, any body types you want for any specific harpy?
>>43983572which pic do you prefer for grownup Nina?1/3
>>43983662or this one?2/3
>>43983572Nothing specific. It would be interesting as they pursue specific classes if their feather coloration changed to match that, maybe if they pursue a subclass or are low level in a class it could be a subtle change like wing tip colour. For a more dramatic change it could be more pronounced across their entire plumage. That's not a word you often get to use, plumage.
>>43983495>>43983572>HarpiesYesterday we were only choosing between Slim and Curvy.Nina, Blue - CurvyAdrianna, Rose, Sniper - SlimRemaining 5 - RandomIf we're going to expand the categories to 4, then I'd go with:Sensually Curvy - BlueFit towards Curvy - NinaFit towards Slim - Rose, AdriannaSlim - Brown (sniper)And have Lyann's team of 5 go random.Also, our lack of investment in precision equipment must be rectified immediately. We have trade unions to create/buyout and scientific equipment to invest in.Like that magic camera: we haven't even kept up with it or tried to get it bought for the military.
>>43983674I thought this was gonna be the last one but I found one more i liked
>>43983749also that fox looks miserable. Anyway this is the last one, I thinkAnd sure, those were just examples, if you want something more specific, I think its fine. They're part of his menagerie so I think his subconscious would affect them to some degree, anyway***As we are playing with the girls, we wonder about some "basic" things like bolts and nuts. In concept, they're very simple, but creating the spiral in a consistent way so that every bolt and every nut can fit would be... wait."I only need to make one good pair, right? then I can just use [craft] to make as many as I want""Many what?" -Atroma heard us and looks at us"Ah is not specially important..."'Once they start circulating, I assume other craftsmen will copy them as well? they're quite useful after all. Screws can replace nails and make building easier and safer in no time.' -Eldric thinks about it to himself- 'It would be mostly the same with most equipment. I only need to make one that really sattisfies me, then I can use [craft] to make as many copies as I need. Portia wants to be my lab assistant, right? should I switch her to craftsmen so she can do it?">Yes, she can then more easily replace anything that gets worn down or breaks off. She already has the high intelligence she needed wizard jobs for. Its not as if she actually needs to be able to cast offensive spells for labwork>No, magic is useful in other forms.>Other
>>43983896>No, magic is useful in other forms.
>>43983662I prefer this one for Nina.
>>43983896>>No, magic is useful in other forms.I haven't given up on a non-useless airheaded succubus assistant, for science.
>>43983971Alright, will keep that one, then.Which of these do you prefer for Rose? "pink harpy" throws a surprising amount of results on google, but I think these three work the besthttp://wallpapereditor.com/w/cwsPQ2.jpg>>43984118>>43983950>>No, magic is useful in other forms.Alright, I guess we'll have to do monthly supply runs, then.***During dinner, well... we can't really have 10 harpies dining at the same table as our royal friends, so we set up a kid's table for them.Stella seems more than happy to join them, but Zoe gives us this odd look... well, she's a child, right? so its alright... I think"Brother's a dummy..." -she says softlyI guess she wanted to sit with us. Really, she's such a spoiled little sister. We'll need to pet and play with her later."...odd because they could just use sea water for it, isn't it?" -says Asmund as the princes on the table talk about salt trade routesWell, salt is more valuable than gold towards the inner parts of the continent, unless your nearby foodgeaon can produce it.By the way, kobolds sometime drop [Kobold Salt] but it is reportedly some very low quality stuff.To be honest, I think we have always used rock salt at home... does sea salt, rock salt and [Kobold Salt] really happen to have any difference? its salt, right?"Well, you can get sugar from several plants, and I do remember that brown sugar is different from white sugar. You can even get it from honey." Honoria gives us a look."Wait, you can get sugar from more than just sugar canes and item drops? Where do you get brown sugar?!""Eh?"Right, we haven't actually seen brown sugar in this world yet. Let me remember... this is a pretty vague memory, but...1/?
>>43984326"You can get sugar from almost any sweet fruit, and also plenty of roots. There's some bitter roots which give you high quality sugar once you boil them, grind them and dry them.""Really? Opal dungeons are full of metal drops, but we have to import our salt and sugar.""Can't you mine rock salt?""Uhmm...? well, now that there's the rockitships making regular runs all over the continent, hasn't that made imports cheaper?""I think so, but its still annoying to have to import it.""How expensive is it?""Enough so that it is a luxury product in many kitchens" -says AsmundReally?"But, isn't Sbastia close to the sea?""Yes, but we are too far north. We have to boil the water away. Can't just let it dry under the sun.""Uhmm... maybe we should invest in salt..." -says Okaba"Well, people will always need salt" -says Asmund"And sugar. We'll always like sugar" -adds Dawn"Speaking of boiling. Who makes the lab tools for the university?""The university imports their lab tools from Black Lake." -says Okaba while cutting a steak"We make our own, though." -adds Asmund"You wouldnt happen to have any flasks at hand?""I have some healing potions in case Dawn needs them. Its the same flasks.""Oh, you make your own healing potions? I thought everyone just used drops""We don't get those in our dungeons." -says DawnWe receive some potions and look at them. Indeed, the flasks all have different sizes."Come think of it, I don't remember seeing standards of measurement in the lab.""Most people use their own, yes.""...that is terribly unproductive""Well, most people are competing with eachother and try to keep their recipes a secret.">I understand>We really should agree on a standard>OtherSo, from the link in >>43984326which one do you prefer? blonde harpy, btw, throws me nothing useful, surprisingly
>>43984622>We really should agree on a standardStandardization! We must push for not just standardization of measurements, but also a number system as well. We just pushed measures for a standard number system in the Empire; we should make sure that all members of the UN do the same.
>>43984622>which one do you prefer? blonde harpy, btw, throws me nothing useful, surprisinglyThe one on the left looks like Rose.One of the other sisters, an Archer or Ranger, would probably fit the one on the right.
>>43984622>>We really should agree on a standard
>>43984622>>We really should agree on a standardTime to make our own ISO, it's for stuff like this that the Alliance comes in handy. Lets name units after the girls.
>>43984663>a number system as well.Well, we are implementing arabic (indian really) numerals in the empire, and both Asmund and Okaba already use it.>>43984863>>43984663>>We really should agree on a standard"Well, what do you want to use for it?" -says Okaba with some interest"Uhmm...">Dirty private joke, something like weighting Lyann's breasts and calling it 1 Heaven of weight.>I really want to use kilos... 1 liter of water = 1 kilo, but how do we measure either if we don't have a standard right now? Should we just go with the tinniest possible measurable amount as a base?>Let's worry about lenght first, then weight. Then temperature>Other<-- Oh, there's this one too, not sure if I included it
>>43985013>>Dirty private joke, something like weighting Lyann's breasts and calling it 1 Heaven of weight.
Voted Here >>43985034>>43985013Once people can accurately measure stuff we can do a better system of units.
>>43985013>Let's worry about lenght first, then weight. Then temperatureLet's do this in a methodical and well-thought out manner.Our image of being a brilliant scientist is being slowly eroded; we need to repair our image.
>>43985013>>Let's worry about lenght first, then weight. Then temperature
>>43985034>>>Dirty private joke, something like weighting Lyann's breasts and calling it 1 Heaven of weight.A man after my own heart.1 Heaven -> 1000 tips (nipple, get it?)1 Kilo -> 1000 gramsActually we should probably start by whatever the smallest measurable weight we have right now is and use it as a base, if we want to be serious.What would be good... really its just a matter of agreeing on the smallest unit first, I guess. Maybe we should just try and make a small metal shard and then, using a good balance, try to make copies of it while keeping the original somewhere safe.IIRC that's what the romans did.>>43985091>>43985085>>Let's worry about lenght first, then weight. Then temperatureAlright, I guess we need a straight wooden lenght first. Shouldnt be hard to make using a simple line and weight to make sure its straight.How do you wanna call our smallest length unit?
>>43985171A Zoe since she's our cute little sister.
>>43985171a millimeter works
>>43985171We'll start with a meter. Then we can create centimeters and kilometers.It's a standard length, and once we have standard lengths, then we can create a standard weight by using a cube of some metal.Because joke measurements are funny the first couple time but they get really awkward and annoying if you actually have to work in them over the course of a campaign.
>>43985195Actually I think 1 Zoe would be better for weight than length, for some reason***"Uhmm... alright, let's see..."We go to a flower pot and use magic to grow a straight, short and relatively flat wooden stick. This we can use as a ruler."What's the smallest, yet durable thing we could use as a repetitive measurement?""How about the width of a butter knife's blade?" -Lyann offers us one"I think it may be too thin. There's no point if it is thinner than whatever we use to mark it with...""Then how about a coin? the coins dropped by the dungeon are all the exact same size, so even if we lose the one we started measuring with, it is easy to replace and we know it will always be the exact same width" -suggests Honoria as she holds her glass"Alright, let's use a gold coin. Its fairly thin but not TOO thin, and gold doesn't grows fungus or rust so its alright to carry it around in your hand."Our friends talk about it for a bit, but noone seems to disagree."Alright, then the height of ten gold coins should be an acceptable base unit, right?""Seems fine to me" -says Asmund***Alright, so how do you want to call our smallest unit, which would be the thickness of a gold coin? a Zoe? or should we just call it a millimeter and go with centimeters and meters?
>>43985485i say Millimeter
>>43985485Millimeter to go with centimeters and meters.
>>43985568>>43985518yeah i think thats better in the long run, really***"..so ten millimeters are a centimeter, and a hundred are a meter.""I don't see why not""Did you get the idea for the name from somewhere?""That would be long to explain. Are you fine with it?""Sure"Our friends agree with us, so we take a dagger and make marks along the "ruler" marking milimeters and centimters, then cut it after roughly 1 meter."Since a millimeter is just 1 gold coin's width, we should be able to make as many of these as we need, right?""Yes, the standard size of coins is truly useful for this.""Well, let's leave it at this for today. Maybe we could start thinking in a standard weight unit in the meanwhile and suggest our ideas tomorrow.""I guess a coin would be too heavy, right?""At least it would be standarized, as well.""So, something you can get in every dungeon. Lighter than a coin.""Something light, which you could get from any dungeon...."With that idea, dinner ends. Of course, now that we made a ruler by hand, we can use [Craft] to make as many as we want.As we go into the room, we look at Lyann."What is it?""I need a lenght of cloth I can mark.""What for?""So I can learn my Lyann's three measurements."She looks at us, unsure on what we meant.Come think of it, what unit of measurement had master Tazar been using all this while?Well, before we have time to do something fun to Lyann, our harpies comes into the room, their tummies full, and more than ready to go to sleep.>Let them sleep out tonight. It may affect their growth if they are inside our menagerie>They should be fine spending the night in the menagerie. I think>Other
>>43985839>Let them sleep out tonight. It may affect their growth if they are inside our menagerie
>>43985839>>Let them sleep out tonight. It may affect their growth if they are inside our menagerie
>>43986013>>43985886>>Let them sleep out tonight. It may affect their growth if they are inside our menagerie'Uhmmm, we are going to need a lot of blankets and extra pillows.'Well, once everyone is comfy... actually, the harpies fall asleep almost inatantly. I guess they're quite tired."I don't suppose we can do anything naughty with the girls in the room?" -says Lyann as she cuddles up to Eldric under the sheets"Well, how about I forbid you to make noise, then caress you all night?" -he says as he kisses her"...if that's my master's order...." -she says with a smileWell, cuddling up with Lyann and Aritsu for hours? certainly a most enjoyable pastime.Like that, we go to sleep in a wonderful mood......and wake up covered in very soft, VERY warm layers of girls and wings.At some point during the night, they climbed on board with us.Their wings feel really hot. This is the highest quality feather cover.'Uhm... whose thigh is this?' -we wonder while gently pushing a leg off our face.This is a lot of wings. Its to the point where it is quite dark under them. It had been a while, come think of it.Since we last woke up covered in girls, that is.>Quietly try and disentangle ourselves from under everyone and get up>Just sit up and get out while pushing whoever we have to>Otherbrb gonna make myself a sandwich
>>43986238>Quietly try and disentangle ourselves from under everyone and get up
>>43986238>>Quietly try and disentangle ourselves from under everyone and get up
>>43986238>Just slip them into our menagerie while their still sleeping, and slip them back out after we're clear of the bed.
>>43986255>>43986273>>43986384>>>Quietly try and disentangle ourselves from under everyone and get up'Uhmm... who's who....?' -looking at the mass of cute girls on the bed, its a little hard to recognize the petite girls that went to sleep lastnight, by using the beauties on the bed as reference.Well, Rose was the only pink one, so... that one would be her, and that one would be... maybe Nina.Right, we had forgotten that they are used to clumping together when they sleep. There's the blue one, and... uhmm we haven't even named all of them yet. Let's call that one Green and that one Red for now.They are all still on the petite side, but their bodies are definitively not child-like anymore. Even while petite, they look perfectly feminine. I guess they would reach to about Lyann's shoulder, at most?The blue one is the tallest, and... that one is Adrianna, right? she's still the smallest of the group, but she certainly developed... no, they're still children inside, so let's keep a clean mind.We should get them clothes their size now. When they were children, it didn't really matter, but its kind of bothersome now.>Alright, let's send them to the menagerie>Let's wake them up and organize a trip to the "pool" so they have fun while we go get them clothes.>OtherI wonder if Honoria's clothes would match them... but I feel like I really shouldnt ask.
>>43986621>>>Let's wake them up and organize a trip to the "pool" so they have fun while we go get them clothes.
>>43986621>Let's wake them up and organize a trip to the "pool" so they have fun while we go get them clothes.
>>43986621>>Let's wake them up and organize a trip to the "pool" so they have fun while we go get them clothes.
>>43986752>>43986640>>43986636>>>>Let's wake them up and organize a trip to the "pool" so they have fun while we go get them clothes.Right, we also promised Mako we'd take her with us next time.But she probably would be upset if we left her babysitting the girls and went to shop, right? so let's ask her if she wants to come with us.That is how, we end up leading a group of naked harpies down the streets in the orc capital... and nobody cares.I know the common sense of this world is basically different from ours, but... this feels a bit too much. I know they're monsters, but we just don't feel calm keeping them nude all the time.It's alright? it's okay? does noone really care? Is this just a stupid pet owner worrying about his pet bird's nudity? are... am I the weird one?*look at the harpies**Shapely and long legs**sensual curves**healty bossoms**beautiful faces*No, no, our reaction is normal, right? what would happen if we gave them a "normal" class and job? people would react if instead of "lvl 60 monster" they were "level 1 villager", right?Yeah, its their common sense which is too affected by this world's "system". We are normal. RightEven when we stare at the flock, neither Lyann, Aritsu nor Mako seem to have any reaction at all. Is it the same as a proud owner admiring a fine horse or thoroughbreed dog? I guess so...Come think about it, noone seems to really mind Fahima's nudity, either. And yet we went to the lenght of getting her a robe for her to wear inside cities... are we... are we finally that excentric middle aged office lady that buys a coat for her miniature dog breed?"Eldric, you look worried" -Mako tugs from our sleeve a little bit"Ah... ">You really don't mind the harpies nudity?>I wanted to go buy some clothes for the harpies. Do you want to come with me?>Other
>>43987025>>I wanted to go buy some clothes for the harpies. Do you want to come with me?after we buy them clothswe buy Mako cloths to make her blush
>>43987025>I wanted to go buy some clothes for the harpies. Do you want to come with me?Oh god, we've become The Crazy Pet Guy.
>>43987078>Oh god, we've become The Crazy Pet Guy.your right
>>43987078>Oh god, we've become The Crazy Pet Guy.I know, right? I just realized it myself.Anyway, let's end here today guys. I know its earlier than usual, but some guys just called me and they want me to GM Aberrant for them tomorrow so im gonna have to prepare. Its harder when you cant really read the booksShould we buy something for our other pets too? we never even thought about it and just got clothes for Tanis and Atroma, but maybe it causes our friends to look at us funny?
>>43987127Thanks for running, later
>>43987127Weapons and Armor for the harpies, and the same for Lyra.I suppose we could buy more dresses and bedroom wear for Miel and Miel II, even though they're not in our Menagerie.I don't know what Pinchers and Squidward would want; maybe some brightly colored balls to kick around?
>>43987127thanks for running
>>43987191>>43987186>>43987163see you guys, take careI just realized, but since Zoe is a lioness, should she be the tallest of our female acquaintances? honestly the tallest atm is Aura at 1.80 meters tall.How tall should a fully grown Eldric be?
>>43987225Zoe, from her pedigree, should go up to 1.75m or 1.8mI want Eldric to be around 1.9m, no taller than 2.1m.I want him to have all of his power densely packed into a seemingly normal package, not the stupidly large size of his grandfather.Honestly, being that large would just present problems in terms of getting around and designing ship bridges.
>>43987314>Honestly, being that large would just present problems in terms of getting around and designing ship bridges.And now you know why his horse is the size of the emperor of the new ageUhmm now the ero writing part of me wonders what size he is between the legs, for ero scenes with the girls
btw what do you think of a series of sheets like this?>>43986238
>>43987686They'd be very useful for us.
