Previous Thread: >>43993297Date: 200 ABO, Year of the ShieldLocation: Narth Ranch You are a seven foot tall Mark I stone Golem. You are the byproduct of the Dorfs and Gnomes attempts to make the perfect artificial being. Yesterday, you awoke from a 200 year slumber with no since of identity or purpose. After awakening, you happened to wonder onto a small Ranch, owned by a cute young elf named Holly. After scaring the shit out of her, you asked her for a name, and she dubbed you Gabriel. To repay her for starting you on your quest for identity, you did some work around her Ranch, and afterwards had dinner with her, and learned a bit about the world around.The next day you met her farm hands, which went poorly at first, but using your Golem charms you manged to make friendly with the one you scared. You also discovered a compartment in your back, where you found 10 old coins, a ruby necklace, and a letter from your creators. The Dorfs and Gnomes.The letter says that your creators saw you as a defective unit, and threw you out. They do not care about you. After sinking into depression, and doing some more work around the Ranch, you went to town with Holly, where you sold those old coins to a friendly Drider artist for a very nice 6000 gold.You used some of your money to buy a breast plate to cover you massive glowing core (which will be done by the end of the week), a claymore, and a few books.You are now back at the Ranch.Your inventory is the fallowing5750 gold4 Old CoinsVery fancy silk bag (gift)Steel clay moreImperial History BookGood Guide to Elves Bad Guide to Elves (Erotic book)Relationship levels are the fallowingHolly: 30/100 Level 1Polk: 0/100 Level 0Bill: 5/100 Level 0Mary: 10/100 Level 0Chester: 0/100 Level 0Marvin the Shop-hand: -15/100 Level 0Mesuki The Drider: 10:/100 Level 0
I stole a picture of the interwebs for your enjoymentHere is a picture of HollyWill post more pictures to go with quest
and here is your list of powers and abilities
Do we still have the ruby necklace? Don't see it in our inventory. If we do then...>Inspect necklaceWhy were we left it? I sort of get the gold along with the letter of termination. Lets us start anew. But why jewelry?
>>44028344It's probably magical.>>44027999Welcome back, OPGet a trip.Old thread: >>43993297
>>44028553>>44028344The necklace is much to small, much to small for you to wear. It has masterfully crafted and has no smith or jeweler stamp on it. It glows lightly with magical aura, however you have no idea what enchantment might be on it.
Let's start building our Golem hut
>>44029136While returning to the Ranch, you brought up building a little hut with Holly. She said yes, but in exchange, you would have to work on her farm for six months. Do you agree to these terms?
>>44029283It's not like we have anything else to do.
>>44029321Pretty sure we're near immortal too. Six months of work? We're literally designed to work without resg for millennia. No biggie.
>>44029283There isn't anything really keeping you here behinds your apparent affection to Holly >>44029402GOLEMS ARE ETERNAL
>>44029638Nothing pulling us away either. Unless we hear of a dwarven golem-smith and a construct-specialist artificer at a location, may as well stay put by a trade hub. May yet be clues near where we awoke too. There was a city somewhere underground around here that we used to work in after all.
>>44029283The lifespan of elves is like a blink to a construct such as ourselves. Six months seems plenty fair enough.
>>44029730>>44029752>>44029907We are just getting started, anon. Lots to do, lots of time to do it inthat asideHolly shows you a small clearing where you can build your little hutYou have some options here my anons How big to you want the hut to be? The clearing is fairly large and leaves a lot of room for creativity. You could even build under groud, if you wanted to! and your only resource right now is wood.I will leave the design up to you my anons. If you want to be a little creative, draw it up!
>>44030158Make it big, and add a basement for us to work on personal things in.>>44030191Yeah, nearly nobody, though the thread just started.
>>44030158Can we get a hold of stone? The cave we woke up in could be the start of a small quarry/mine.
>>44030158Make it fairly large and stable use strong materials and have a small fence(large enough to keep out animals) and eventually a garden around it.
>>44030158Build underground exclusively. Have the only entrance up top be a large, extra heavy hatch that we can open.Don't bother with ventilation or anything like that, either. We don't need it. Just make sure that it's ISOLATED, DRY, AND CLEAN.
>>44030158Some kind of cellar that leads into a somewhat hidden underground facility. I'm thinking a library of sorts, so in case of some kind of event forcing us to sit underground for a long period of time (war, apocalypse, etc.) we can use our collection of books for studying and learning about ourself and our world.Something like this, maybe?
>>44030828A workshop too I think. Making things is fun. Plus if we ever work out golem smithing, maybe self improvement/maintenance. Have above ground be like >>44030552?
>>44030953I will back this if we have a nice fence around the house
>>44030953Yeah, that came to mind when I was drawing, but I didn't really know how to illustrate a workshop with my shit mouse drawing skills. Some place to read for pleasure and study that also functions as a place to learn and practice our smithing and metallurgy is all we really need.It'd also be nice if we had a place for Holly to come visit for tea/holding hands. We'll want a nice bedroom on the surface.
>>44030953>>44030828>>44030652>>44030571>>44030552>>44030419You make a mental note to go back to your formal resting place to see if the stone is worth anything.New Power Discovered! Your fists can rotate at sigh speeds to function as a drill! You begin hallowing out a basement for your house. After several hours, you have a nice, large room made. The run is getting ready to set, and you are now covered in dirt. The room is 6 feet underground, and big enough to store at least a dozen Golems. You are industrious, if nothing else. When you crawl out of your hole, you find Holly standing there with a tray of lemonade."I suppose I shouldn't be surprised you like it underground." She offers you a glass. "Refill for your uh... repair gel tanks?"
>>44031034A whole load of workbenches, some huge cabinets filled with teenty boxes with different sized screws, tool ranks around the edge with uncommon tools and a wheeled toolrack of common tools to move between workbenches.Basing this near entirely off of Adam Savage's shop, but he seems to know what he's doing. >>44031116>politely accept lemonadeProbably wore down our fists somewhat with all the drilling.
>>44031116Accept the lemonade and thank her. We need a good workshop we must have some information on crafting things left over from the dwarves and gnomes.
>>44031116Are we able to refill the repair gel by eating like dirt or rocks or somesuch?In regards to Holly accept the lemonade and maybe ask about her day?>>44031329Drilling dirt will do barely anything at all against our rock hands I'd imagine. Dirt is generally rather soft.
>>44032061>>44031792>>44031329Your fists are quite worn down. You can feel the repair gel inside you empty slightly, pumping into your arms and hands as the stone that is/was your hands slowly regenerates. Holly is a bit freaked out by this. You thank her for the lemonade and drink it. It refills the gel you lost. You can eat rocks and dirt, but it isn't worth as much as eating meat, fruits, and vegetables. the reason for this being is because your creators wanted you to be realistic in your diet. "How as your day been, Ms. Holly?" You ask, finishing the lemonade. "Its been good." She says with a smile. "After we got back from town, I helped Bill work on filling the holes left over from the tree stumps I asked you to tare out, we want to make a pasture for some goats we're getting next month." She takes your glass. "Will you be joining me for dinner again tonight? Its nice to have company at night, I'm finding."
>>44032694>Yes, of course.Holly a cute, we want to spend more time with her.
>>44032694yes I would be happy to join you.
>>44032694If the lady insists we would be happy to oblige.
>>44032931>>44032826>>44032790"I'd love to." You say. She smiles. "Lovely!" + 5 relationship points with Holly(35/100. Next level 50/100)You're having dinner with Holly tonight. Why don't you clean your self up a bit? You are covered in dirt and stone. Perhaps even get her a gift!
>>44033073This is a good point. We need to find a body of water. We should go on a run through the countryside; perhaps there'll be a pond we can take a quick dip in.
>>44033073Find a decent water source and wash up see if there are any nice wild flowers around maybe i'm not the best with gifts.
>>44033073Are we capable of carving a simple 'doll' of her from a rock? Would that be an alright gift?Are we able to shake off the dirt like a dog would water? I find it humorous if we can.
>>44033147I just had a better idea: Should we give Holly one of our coins as a gift? It'd cover her living expenses for a good portion of her lifetime.
>>44033236It feels wrong to give and accept something so valuable when you've just met someone, it is an excellent gift though.
>>44033347>>44033236>>44033223>>44033147>>44033118You remember seeing a small stream on your way town, and make your way.You wash your self off and shake the water off of yourself like a dog. a large, stone dog. There are some flowers along the road back to the ranch. Your imprinted memories tell you that, while not exactly fancy, they are nice, you pluck a few of them and return to the Ranch, by then, the farmhands have gone home and you see smoke coming from the chimney of Hollys house. Your current inventory is5750 gold4 Old CoinsVery fancy silk bagSteel ClaymoreImperial History BookGood Guide to ElvesBad Guide to ElvesRed cape, with a large golden hammer on it.
>>44033347I mean, that's fair, but we also have no sense of our own value. How much is our labor worth in money? How much are the sum of our body parts worth? All we know is that a book shouldn't cost 50 gold and that a sword is worth about 200.>>44033453I guess for now we'll just give her the flowers. Let's head towards her house and sit by the window.
>>44033453>Good Guide to ElvesTake a quick skim of the book before we meet her. Might have a useful tip.
>>44032694Is better if we read the books before that.
>>44033618>>44033489So my anonsI've always been a bit bad at pacing, I just want you to know that as we get into thisYou pop your trunk, and pull out your book, and quickly skim it. There is a lot to process in it. Under the 'Dining' section you find that elves are quick eaters, and like sweets. Especially cookies. Elven table talk tends to drift toward nature and family. They are a curious race and enjoy learning new things as well. You run out of time to read any more as you go up to the kitchen window, and quickly store your book Holly is standing at her counter, cutting carrots. "Oh hello Gabriel!" She says brightly. "You've cleaned up! You look much better." She chuckles.
>>44033988We have killed flower, we have killed the forest little childens, she will think that we are monsters...
>>44033988Wait. Oh, god. Is she vegetarian? I don't remember if we ever ate meat. Well, flowers are plants just like carrots, really. Let's give them to her.>"I found a bush of flowers while I was walking earlier, and I picked a few because they reminded me of you."
>>44034057To bad we never got to squish any pigeons.
>>44034159Well, these little beast eat seeds, the plants unborn children.
>>44034057>>44034134>>44034159Guys you had steak with her the other day. Shes not a vegetarian. You persent her with the flowers. ""I found a bush of flowers while I was walking earlier, and I picked a few because they reminded me of you" Holly turns bright red."O-oh! T-thank you!" She takes them. "They are beautiful! I-I'll go put them in a vase right away!" She runs out of the kitchen. You feel like you did a good job. +10 relationship points with Holly45/100
>>44034134I think the first thing we ate was steak that she offered us so were probably in the clear there.>>44033988>"You've cleaned up! You look much better."I have learned that this is proper procedure. Here are some flowers.
Do elves usually have a masonry fetish or is it just Holly?
>>44034293>>44034303It's all repair gel to me!Do we dare sneak a peek at the Good/Bad Guide for Elves while we wait for her to get back?
>>44034293Well, now we know she is not a Dwarft Fortress elf
>>44034293OP you seem to have lost your name. Just FYI.>>44034348sure why not? But we need to be extra careful we don't reveal our secret cheat sheet.
>>44034324You'll have to read the Bad Guide to Elves to find out. Or bed Holly Or both. >>44034348>>44034518(I earse my name when I post in other threads. Sometimes I forget to readd it)While Holly is away, you quickly pop your trunk, and check the book again.'Elves enjoy going on post dinner walks, and a great many might be like to drink wine on full moons.'You hear Hollys foot steps and put your book back and close your trunk.She has a small silver vase with the flowers in them. "Thank you so much Gabriel." She is still blushes a wee bit. She returns to prepping the meal. "I don't think anyones ever brought me flowers before. Not since I lived in the city anyway." She throws the carrots into a pot on the stove. "I hope you like chicken noodle soup. I mean, I know you don't taste, but..." She drifts off. "I don't know where I was going with that. She stirs the soup. "I didn't get a chance to ask, what books did you pick up in town?"
>>44034793I purchased books on social interaction and history, I wanted a frame of reference for how i should act and common knowledge.
>>44034793Just a couple books on history, and demihumans. There is a... Lot to catch up on, from living among only dwarves and gnomes to here and now.
>>44034883Lets go with this.Maybe we could pull out the history one to show her?
>>44034883>>44034896>>44034922"I bought a book on history, and a couple on social interaction. I find that there is... a lot fo catch up on." You take out the history book and hand it to her. She take its. "Ah, History of the Imperium. That might be useful. Lots of wars in there. Lotta lotta wars. The Fylkir likes war." She chuckles and hands you back the book. "My granddad fought in the Battle of Kelvin. Got a medal for leading a charge over the city Wall! Lost his arm though."
>>44035094The fylkir? A race or faction? Sorry, I haven't settled down to read these yet.
>>44035094Do tell me more, I'd have started the book but I've been busy digging a hole. (like >>44035129)
>>44035094Oh dear. Did he have a new one put on or is he a nonmoddable version?
>>44035426This, but replace nomoddable with discontinued
>>44035129"Who or what is the Fylkir? I haven't gotten a chance to start reading the book yet, as I was digging..."She smiles "The Fylkir is the leader of the Imperium. Has been since its founding. The current Fylkir is Isaac Calorus." She stirs the soup a bit more, and then puts it into a bowl. She sets on on the table for her self, and then one on the window sill for you."What of your grand father?" You ask, taking a spoonful of the soup into your mouth."Well when he couldn't fight anymore, he volunteered for the Replacement Limb Program, which is where he met my Grandmum. He got a prototype arm, made of Mithril. I remember, when I was a little girl, he'd show off how strong it made him. He'd lift Boulders and break steel poles in half..." She sighs and smile at the memory. "He was a good man."
>>44035509Was your Grandmum another volunteer?>Replacement Limb Program,>Mithril.Those sound really interesting. What exactly is the Replacement Limb Program?
>>44035509>>44035689Seconding this. Maybe we can learn to upgrade ourselves through this program in the future.
>>44035509>was a good manAsk what happened to him.
>>44035744>>44035689"What exactly is the Replacement Limb Program? Was your Grandmother a volunteer as well?" You ask, take another sip of your soup. Holly shakes her head"No, she was a nurse that helped him with his rehabilitation. As for the program it self, its a military program ran by the Imperial Institute of Science and Technology. They worked with the College of Magic to figure out how to replace limbs with enchanted metal one. I think they have a center in Kelvin. Now that I think about it." She ponders, trying to remember."So uh, you used past tense..." You said awkwardly. "Ah, yes. On my grandpa. He passed away when I was in school. Old age, you see." She nods. "My grandma went soon after. The doctors said it was a broken heart. Its... an elf thing. We can do this ritual that bonds us together and its really intense..." She trails off.
>>44035934>"Please, go on. I don't know much about elf biology yet."
>>44035934Have you bonded with another?>>44036010L-lewd, Anon!
>>44035934Seconding both >>44036010>>44036057
While Gabriel may be eternal and unresting, I sadly am not. I must rest. I shall continue in the morning. Fare well my anons.
>>44036162We will continue in the morn, if the thread is still going. If not, I'll just start a new one. TAKE IT EZ
>>44036162Sweet dreams, golem master.
>>44036162Thanks for running OP. Good night!
>>44036162Sleep tight, storyteller
Theory: Our creators actually liked us. The letter was for our benefit, but not to be take at face value.They had to flee the continent. Still, someone took the time to write us a letter, not even knowing if it would ever be read, and gave us money and a magical artefact. These are not actions of someone who doesn’t care about us.Instead, what if they wanted to break off any association between us and them so that the angry mob doesn’t destroy us? And also, so that we will feel free to do whatever we want instead of feeling bound to the creators?
I have returned.how are you all doing today?Ready to seduce the beautiful Elven rancher, I hope?
>>44040861Our dworf creators are probably turning in their graves
>>44040861Is this going to turn into Leisure Suit Larry, Fantastical Golem edition?>>44041146>Implying our creators were not lecherous perverts who built us for the sole purpose of furthering their perverted goals and are watching patiently from the afterlife
>>44040884>>44041071>>44041146"Please go on, I don't know much about elf biology yet." You say, finishing your bowl of soup. Holly gets up and gets you another. "Yet?" She asks. "You fixing to learn?" She chuckles. "Well, the Elven bond is this big long ritual that sorta binds two people together. Their souls interlocked for all of time. You can hear each others thoughts, and feel each others emotions. Like I said, its really intense. Most married couples don't even do it." She says, handing you another bowl, and sitting back down."Have you ever Bonded with another?" Holly blushes at the question."No. I uh, I haven't even had a boyfriend since I came out here. I've never even.. ya know..." Shes bright red now.
>>44041522>(whispered) "cute…">"Ahem… If it is too personal we can talk about something else. How long have you been living here?"
>>44041522>>44041579This is good
>>44041579>>44041921"Ahem… If it is too personal we can talk about something else. How long have you been living here?" You can feel your repair gel tanks refilling "My parents moved out here right after I graduated from school. I've been here ever since. My parents had to go up North to meet with my uncles. Apparently a distant relative died and left my dad some money. I've been here on my own for about a two weeks now."
>>44042095So she graduated two weeks ago… What did she learn? Does she still have her school books? (They might be useful to learn some general stuff)
>>44042132No, her parents left two weeks ago anon.
>>44042095Oh. It must get lonely being out here all by your self.
>>44042185>"My parents moved out here right after I graduated from school."This implies that those things happened at nearly the same time. Which was two weeks ago.
>>44042321>>44042185Wait… "Out here" not "Out of here". Reading comprehension and all that…
>>44042343>>44042321sorry sorry. My bad. I shall correct this."Ahem… If it is too personal we can talk about something else. How long have you been living here?" You can feel your repair gel tanks refilling"After I graduated from school, which was about 10 years ago, my parents packed up and came out here. I came with them, and have been here even since. Right now, my parents are up North. a distant relative died, and left my dad some money. They left about two weeks ago, so I've been on my own since then." She shrugs. "Still not sure how I'm going to explain you to them."
>>44042441Oh, that's easy.'I found a rock while you were gone.He's helpful. Hope you don't mind an extra pair of hands around the farm.'
>>44042441>sorry sorry. My bad. I shall correct this.No error was made on your side. I simply failed to read it correctly.>"I don’t see what is so complicated about that. An old golem showed up one day and you let it stay on your land in exchange for helping you. Simple as pie, as the saying goes. Though I think some pies can be quite complicated affairs, if my memories are right. Maybe not the best comparison?"
>>44042441Wait a minute.Ask Holly if she notices anything weird about the heart amulet we have.If she doesn't, then we have a special magic detection function.
>>44042501>>44042586"I don’t see what is so complicated about that. An old golem showed up one day and you let it stay on your land in exchange for helping you. Simple as pie, as the saying goes. Though I think some pies can be quite complicated affairs, if my memories are right. Maybe not the best comparison?" you say with a chuckle.Holly laughs. "I like pie." she says. "My parents wont mind another hand on the farm. As long as you keep up the hard work. I'll put in a good word for you with them."
>>44042846"thank you, that means a lot to me."
>>44042823>>44043120"Thank you. That means a lot to me." Holly smiles. "Think nothing of it." she says.You think back to the necklace you found in your compartment. "I hate to impose. But could I ask a small favor?" She raises and eyebrow. "I suppose you could. What do you need?" You pop your trunk and pull out the heart shaped ruby necklace. "I examined the necklace that I found in my storage. I believe it is enchanted, do you have any sort of magical knowledge?" She takes it, and examines it."Well, I don't know anything about enchantments. But I could put it on, and see if it does anything."
>>44043290"Can you feel the magic, though? Sense it in any way?"
>>44043342This and also.>>44043290Do you think that would be safe? I doubt my creators would put something harmful in my trunk, but we don’t know.
>>44043342>>44043423"Well. Its glowing, so that means its magic. Beyond that I really can't tell you much." She shrugs. "Sorry."You rub your chin. "Do you think putting it on would be safe? I doubt my creators ould put something harmful in my trunk, but we don't know." She takes your words to heart and doesn't put it on."Next month I'm going into Kelvin next month to get some goats. There is a College of Magic branch there, they could take a look at it, if you would like to join me."
>>44043669>"Sure."Has she finished her food yet? If so, we should do the after-dinner walk.
>>44043669"Not necessarily, about the glowing. You see, some crystals glow entirely naturally. Some creatures and microorganisms, too - even the occasional plant. It's all chemical reactions, usually."
>>44043669I would love to.Which reminds me, would you care to hear a secret?
>>44043712>>44044181"That sounds lovely." You say with a nod. Holly takes your bowl and hers and puts them in the sink. "Perhaps you'd like to go on an after dinner walk?" You addHollys ears perk up. "I'd love to!" She climbs out the window and and smiles are your. "Fallow me! you have to see the steam at night, its beautiful in the moonlight!" She grabs your mighty golem hand and pulls you along. You fallow along. "Holly, would you care to hear a secret?" You ask."Sure?" She asks curious."
>>44044237Lean in and whisper I'm rock hard right now.
>>44044237In a low whisper, "I have more than a dozen voices in my head telling me what to do."Or yaknow, "I am as hard as a rock."
>>44044279You have a point i did it as a joke but what secret are we even talking about?
>>44044356Beats me, some anon said it.Now we gotta come up with something...
>>44044237>"I too would like a secret. Maybe we’ll find one one day."This anon says good night.
>>44044586Ok, yeah. This is a good answer.
>>44044586This is the good.
>>44044255>>44044279>>44044300>>44044356>>44044374Since no is in agreement I'll fill in the blanks"I think you are a cute." You tell her as she pulls you along. She turns red."W-what? A cute?!" She seems flabbergasted. "Um. Um. Y-you to!" She says. She quickens her pace as she pulls you along. "Y-you really know how to make a girl blush."
>>44044695"I just do what comes naturally. Do you not do the same?"
>>44044695"I sometimes wonder how i actually feel theese things, it is almost as if the conciousness of multiple people controlls my very being
>>44044879No, not this.
>>44044879The golem is a containment board for us. Keep it that way.>>44044768This.
>>44044695>>44044768This is good.
>>44044768>>44044894>>44045006"I just do what comes naturally. Do you not do that same?" You arrive at the small stream. Holly twiddles her thumbs nervously. "W-well, I mean. L-like I told you. I don't really have any experience with... urm... flirting. I mean. We only just met, and you come off so... strong. I like it. I like it a lot. B-but I don't know to to react."
>>44045095Sit down next to the stream and offer the space next to you to Holly."Just do what comes naturally, I promise it's very hard to offend me, I have quite thick skin."
>>44045144"No, wait. I guess I don't actually have any skin. Would I look better with skin? No, probably not, I think. It would be pretty weird to go walking around with skin stretched over a bunch of rock. People would scream, children would be traumatized."
>>44045144You sit down by the stream, and tap the spot of grass next to you, Holly takes a seat. She takes off her boots and socks, and dips her feet in the water. "Just do what comes naturally. I promise it's very hard to offend me, I have quite thick skin." She is blushing. "W-well I mean. I don't think the thoughts I'm currently having would cause you much offense." She shifts closer to you."Perhaps, in these coming months. We could enjoy each others company?"
>>44045562That sounds beautiful, thank you.
>>44045562Break up a bit of your body and give it to Holly>"You will always enjoy my company, Holly"
>>44045597>>44045706>>44046205"That would be lovely, Holly." You say with a smile.The two of you sit there together for a while. Enjoying the sight of the moon reflecting on the steams water.However, your peaceful serenity is destroyed by the sounds of running footsteps on the path over head. You turn your head and see Polk running toward the Ranch. He sees the two of you."Ms. Narth! The trial against those bankers just ended! Their having a lynching!"Holly stands up. "Oh Fylkir. Another one?" She turns to you. "How'd you like to have a taste of Imperial Justice, Gabriel?"
>>44046439"Lynching. A public execution often done through hanging. I do not understand why people would wish to prematurely end the lives of beings that are destined to inevitably die anyways. Isn't the time you all have short enough as it is?"
>>44046439"What form of justice might this be?"
>>44046572>>44046576"Lynching. A public execution often done by hanging. What form of justice might this be?" You stand up. "Its Imperial Justice. I wont lie. Its not pretty."Polk rolls his eyes. "Oh come on. Those fuckers robbed half the town. They deserve it!"
>>44046784"Material goods are simple to replace, and wealth is in constant circulation. A life is easy to end, but extremely difficult to bring back. For most, it is a permanent and premature end to an already short existence."
>>44046784Go to lynching (read: ruin the mood), see death first-hand.Try to examine the reactions of the crowd, and who has positive and negative reactions to it.
>>44046831"Material goods are simple to replace, and wealth is in constant circulation. A life is easy to end, but extremely difficult to bring back. For most, it is a permanent and premature end to an already short existence." You suddenly feel very philosophical.Holly and Polk raise their eyebrows"We don't make the laws, Gabriel." Holly says. "We just live with them. We don't have to go if you don't want to." She shrugs. "I've never been one to attend them."
>>44047392"I have never witnessed Death firsthand. Perhaps doing so will allow for certain insights that I may currently be unable to fully comprehend. Though morbid, it is bound to be an enlightening event in some way or another."IE go to the shit.
>>44047556seems the thread has come to a stand still, anonI think we'll call this for now, and start part 3 tomorrow.
>>44047556Sounds good to me

>>44060843That's just some anon posting that though, OP never repliedI'm hoping it means we'll start in half an hour, but still
I over sleptI had a dream of World War II and it was lovely.Anyway, whose all here? We can begin if no one is dead
>>44061136I had a dream about the Holocaust, funnily enough. I'm ready to go.
>>44061136Sorry, I’m dead.
>>44061224Hello dead, I, too, am Dead.>>44061136My body is Reginald Jackson
>>44061136Nice dream OP.
>>44061204>>44061224rip in peace anonYou will not be missedanywayYou tell Holly you'd like to see what exactly Imperial Justice is.After a short walk back to town,you find a crowd gathered around a large wooden platform. On top of it is a man in suit with a rope around his neck, next to him is the man pictured."Ladies and Gentleman of Karva, I present to you Mr. Achr Kel. He stands guilty of theft. For the past year and a half he has stolen over 20,000 gold from you, the hard working people of the Imperium!" the caped man grabs the hanged man by his hair. "Tell me, Mr. Kel, what did you use this money on!?" The hanged man whimpers. "I-I bought luxuries for my family and friends." He says pathetically. "I-I spent 10,000 gold trying to arrange an unofficial transfer to the North."The caped man pulls a note out of his coat and holds it in front of the man. "Read the underlined section!" He demands.Kel gulps. "I want out of this backwards frontier town, the people here are freakish and boring. I long for the civilized North." The caped man throws the note aside. "I believe there is nothing left to be said. I, Ortlip Sarneringen, sentence you to death." He pulls a large level, and Kel drops like a sack of rocks, the sound of his neck snapping echos over the crowd. You see piss dripping down his pant leg and his eyes bulging out of his head. The caped man leaves him hanging there, and walks off the hanging platform. The crowd quickly disperses. Holly stares at the hanged man."Thats Imperial Justice, Gabriel."
>>44061611>Get that note.>Interesting. Is 20k gold a lot?
>>44061611>Get the note>Stand here and wait until someone or something comes to get the body. Then ask what will be done with the body.
>>44061611Definitely go grab the note.>"In an alternate scenario, I wonder, would the citizens pool together 20,000 gold to pay to have a thief hung? It is functionally no different."
>>44061648This. >>44061693 is too philosophical.
>>44061730I was going more for the "we have no concept of ownership or stealing" shtick, but fine.
>>44061611this sounds good>>44061648
>>44061648>>44061685>>44061693You grab the note the the executioner threw. "Is 20,000 gold a lot?" You ask Holly. She nods."Thats enough to buy my Ranch, expand it, and have enough left over for a couple breeding studs." She sighs. "They leave the body out until morning as a warning other Government officials." >>44061742Your creators imprinted the basic understanding of property and ownership.anywayThe note reads"Dear Mr. Anderson,For the past three years I have spent living among the massive of the South, and by the Fylkier has it been fucking abysmal! I want out of this frontier town! The people here are freakish and boring. The culture is lame and uneducated. Did you know they do not host reenactments down here?I would purpose that, perhaps with a modest payment, you could transfer me back to the Crown? I would be forever grateful.-Mr. Kel."
>>44062009Ask Holly her thoughts about the execution
>>44062009Ask what Holly thinks should have been done with Mr. Kel.
>>44062009Ask how Mr. Kel's family and friends will be affected.
>>44062064>>44062066>>44062077Double DubsWe are all going to die"What are your thoughts on this? Did Mr. Kel deserve this?" You ask Holly. She shrugs."It is what it is." She says flatly. "The Fylkier says the roots of corruption must be exterminated.">>44062147"What happens to his family and friends?" You set the note on the hanging platform. "Well, his family will be offered transport back to the North. As for his friends, anyone who helped him will be punished in their own way. Not hanging though. Maybe a flogging, or a slap on the wrist." She takes your hand and starts pulling you along back to the ranch. "At worst, some people might be conscripted." She sighs. "Its always messy business."
>>44062231Let her lead you back to the ranch, keeping a close eye out for any rogue pigeons.
>>44062299DOUBLE DUBS. Surely this means we will find a pigeon or ten to crush?
>>44062299>>44062319You have absolutely no reason to hate pigeons and see no reason to start now. Now that you think of it, you haven't seen many birds around. Weird.You and Holly walk back to the ranch, hand and handSomewhere in your imprinted memories, you remember that this is a sign of intimacy.
>>44062491Wish her a good night and enter our rest period.
>>44062491Get shit on by a pigeon. Grow to hate them.
>>44062491Ask if there is room in the house where you can sleep.
>>44062491Christ guys>>44062798>>44062897Just say good night and go sleep/build in our hut
>>44062798>Now that you think of it, you haven't seen many birds around. Weird.>>44062897You are incapable of even fitting in the the door to her house. >>44062510When you return to the Ranch, wish Holly a good night. Before you part ways, she pulls your down to her level and gives you a kiss on the cheek. "Good night, Gabriel."You return to your room in the barn and settle in.Since you don't require sleep, you could spend the night reading your new books. But the chose is yours, anons.
>>44063067Good point. Read up on elves. Good or bad book, I don't care.
>>44063067Holly is a good elf, so let's read the Good Guide to Elves.
>>44063067Read the history book.
>>44063067Read, nigga, read. Come on.
>>44063067i say we try to work on learning more of our golem anatomy and our functions
>>44063097>>44063121>>44063143>>44063144>>44063349You decide to read. You start off with the Good Guide to Elves.You read the section on Elven History The section states that after The Big One, the Elves home land, The Great Forest, sank, and refugees began pouring into the shattered remains of the first Empire.From here, Humans and Elves worked together for the first time to lay the Foundation of the Imperium.The former Elven homeland was a magnificent place, that was filled with magical wonders that could bend the very fabric of reality. These wonders were lost when the Forest sank into what is now the Black Sea. After reading that chapter, you move onto Imperial History.The Imperium was officially founded exactly one year after The Big One. Its founder, Lord Leman Calorus the First. He united the the scattered peoples of the fallen First Empire, and set about The Great Reunification War, where he retook the the lands of the First Empire and more. over the course of ten years. The Imperium could have very well conquered the world, but was halted when the evil Telvish State was found in the East. Since then, the Imperium and the Telvish have been in an unending, brutal war. The official line between the two Empires has become a wasteland, where all manners of warfare have scared the land. At this time, the War shows no signs of stopping. Nearly 1 billion men and woman have died, another another billion will if it stops the Telvish. You decide to stop reading there, and let the information soak in.
>>44064112Touch our rock hard self. Vigorously.
>>44064112Since we don't need sleep, we should spend time improving our home. For now, drill open some spaces where we can place rooms in the future.
>>44064112seconding these >>44063349>>44064255
>>44064255You go to your little hole in the ground.You begin planning out your house, and drill the door ways for future rooms.You also dig a small latter to the surface for your self and perhaps Holly, maybe someday she'll come down here, once your house is finished.Once you get some work done, you decide to take a break, to let your hands regenerate once again. You feel your repair gel tanks empty a little bit.You decide that now would be a good time to examine your self, and maybe learn a bit about your anatomy.Let me work something up for this.
>>44064593kk take your time OP, no rush.
Bodily Examination: As you know, are you seven feet tall, and made of stone. Your face is a bland looking statue one. The only thing that really stands out are your eyes, that are some very beautiful gems that glow bright blue. You are about 3 1/2 feet wide, with a strange, glowing blue gem in your chest. On your arms and legs, you have steel plating embedded into your stone skin.When your try and do anything to your core, nothing happens. As for functions, you are not really sure what to do. These functions wills have to come to you in time as your try new things.
>>44064791What do our joints look like? Are they exposed or are they covered?
>>44064857Your joints are covered in very smooth, almost organic looking stone.
>>44065032Cool. Well, let's go into standby mode until dawn.
>>44065080>>44065250You enter stand by modeThe only change in your relationship is with Holly. Which has altered dramatically.It is currently 75/100Level 3 The events of today have really bumped up your points.
>>44065352read bad guide to elves
>>44065352Attempt to determine if relationship points are an objective or subjective measurementThis could be a clue to something
Its looking like the thread is coming to a standstill once again. I'll let this thread die and get part 3 started tomorrowAlso I need to brain storm, and work on some shit. Thanks for playing everyone. I hope to see you next time.
>>44065507It's not really at a standstill, we are just waiting for you to post an update where something happens
>>44065507Kinda what >>44065519 said. You said we entered standbye mode, I'm just waiting for morning to come and you to decide what you want us to do. I don't mind more freeform like you do, but we do need some sort of prompt to work from.
>>44065519I'm sorry if things seem slow. I'm building up to something, but need to do some more work before it happens. IE: A map, and dig up some old character sheets.Please bare with me my anons.
>>44065639I'm perfectly fine with how things are going honestly. Its been quite fun so far and I figured you had some sort of plot happening somewhere.
>>44065639>Please bare with me my anons.LEWD
>>44065639No problem, you've been doing a great job so far. I do think that you should set up a Twitter or something like that so you can communicate when you will be OPing.
>>44065765Totally agree anon.
>>44065670>>44065737Things shall happens Pray do you not recall them. >>44065765I put some thought in that. And you are right anon. I'll return with one in a moment
>>44065786>Pray do you not recall them. Don't tease ;^)

>>44066079I searched and got no results.
>>44066156>/GabrielTheGolemSearching on Twitter's a bit fucky, put that at the end of the URL instead

>>44066079Are you the same OP that did the rebuilding quest?Your map is just about the same, and you both use the Telvish State. Are they the same world?
>>44066322I was. and they aren't. I just re use ideas so I don't have to come up with new names.At least 5 of the names I've used come from random fantasy name generators.
Working on labeling map
>>44067211huh, the town and her ranch are actually a fair distance from each other. How long did it take us to move between them?
>>44067382About an hour.
>>44067413Hmm... well the distance between Narth Ranch and the Villiage of Woodbrook is (on my monitor) .5 centimeters. So on this current scale, its 1 hour of walking time per .5 centimeters. It is 1.5cm or 3 hours to The City of Kelvin and about 12cm/24 hours of walking time to the blue line. I'm not sure if that's supposed to be accurate, or if Narth Ranch and Village are simply further apart on the map than they "should" be.
>>44067541It's not suppose to be a super accurate map anon.
>>44068155Trying my best anon.
>>44068232Its okay OP. More than anything I was just letting you know what the distances were saying so you could either come up with a more concrete scale. Ultimately its not a massive issues. If possible, all I ask is you provide markings on how long it takes to move to places.Or just put the ranch and the village nearly on top of each other. Then it doesn't matter the distance between them. I'm sorry for my autism OP.
