>>44872716Today is a day in which you learn things. You learn, for example, that the Shaft has full-service baths and that longstanding policy says you don't enter the Atheneum without taking one, so as not to offend the librarians or damage the books. It also has laundry facilities, for much the same reason. You get to open your morning by becoming cleaner than you've felt in months, not because you haven't cleaned but because absolutely fucking nothing beats hot running water and scented soap. It's the little luxuries in life. Your laundry being cleaned gives you an excuse to luxuriate, at least until one of the people tending it throws a still-slightly-wet set over the door to your bath. You emerge, towel off, and dress a bit reluctantly. Still, you have to face the day /sometime/. When you step out, the elevator is bringing passengers down from the Shaft. Curious, you take up your cane, don your hat, and hustle over to meet it. This can't be the reinforcements already, right?When it hits the bottom, the elevator contains Victoria and Scribbles, the former armed professionally, the latter holding an unloaded crossbow and enough quarrels of bolts to start a civil war and a religious debate besides. "Surprise!" the lamia says with a grin. > ...Huh. > Hey! Good to see you!> WHERE IS MY COFFEE, SNAKE-WOMAN?
>>44872811>I've just had a nice bath, so I'll forgive the lack of coffee>But I'm THIS close to not allowing you into this battle without that coffee
> WHERE IS MY COFFEE, SNAKE-WOMAN?
> "Hey! Good to see you! NOW WHERE IS MY COFFEE, SNAKE-WOMAN?" >Make sure this is teasing, not actually I WILL FLAY YOUR HIDE FROM YOUR FLESH IF COFFEE IS NOT PRODUCED.
>>44872811> WHERE IS MY COFFEE, SNAKE-WOMAN?
>>44872827>>44872848Yeah, that sounds about right.

Alright folks, thread's archived and I have to pass out. I'm up way too late as it is. Questions, discussion, comments, feedback, and criticisms are both welcome and appreciated. They help me improve, folks! For the folks doing writing, feel free to post it (preferably in a pastebin or a Gdoc) whenever it's ready, and I'll give it a read. Thank you all for reading and participating!
>>44872827>>44872848Agreed. To be expected of a La Croix, and of Brianna. >>44873040As previously discussed, Brianna can combine her necromancy with other branches of magic if she decides to get her study & experimentation hat on. That being said, are there any specific spells that would be worth learning in the immediate future? I know of balefire and the blinding darkness being illusion-based, but could we rapidly age and corrode weapons and armor with a combo of water, air and necromancy? It could make it easier to disarm rather than kill those we don't actually want to harm. Also, necromancy combined with water could yield acid.
>>44873040I for one am willing to take up a collection to fuel a meth habit.Fuck sleep. Write quests.
>>44873040Another random question because I am an insomniac; In your magical realm, is it possible to save skin, blood, bones and organs for later use? I just figure that if you have in-depth experience with both magic and medicine, you could perform some successful transplants.Also, are there any unique traits inherent in the half-blooded children of the First and Secondborn? For example, are there specific strengths and weaknesses depending on who your demonic parent was (Succubus, Incubus, Oni, Rakshasa, etc.)?
>>44872811>> Hey! Good to see you!I feel kind've bad for the snake.
>I've just had a nice bath, so I'll forgive the lack of coffee>But I'm THIS close to not allowing you into this battle without that coffeeLet's be playful about this.
>>44872716>YA'LLIt's Y'all, fricking Yankees man
So I've got a question, what's the difference between demon/living iron and wraithsteel?
>>44874683The same difference between iron and copper. Completely different materials.
>>44874683Well, one's iron and another is steel, so I'd assume different smelting methods?
Yo what would you do if you got a cubic meter of wraithsteel?
>>44875038Sentient carriage frame.
>>44875038Tentacle wreathed cock ring. As well as several hand rings that could lock together to form spiked knuckle dusters.Go from flashing my wealth to fisting your face pussy.
>>44875038Replace my missing leg. Haha just kidding. I'd cut my other leg off and make prehensile wings that I would use to walk AND fly with.
>>44875038I would make a Luggageotherwise, depends on what creature it came from
>>44875038I don't speak commie measurements, but if I had enough of the stuff you can bet your ass I'd make myself a wraith steel waifu.
>>4487532035 cubic feetDefinitely enough for waifu.
>>44875320Surprise fellow Amerifag, I use meters to identify fellow Amerifags in the field. Also I used it because it felt right.>>44875166that's rather bland chap. Just normal luggage?>>44875146>Not making super legs and becoming toa mata pohatu>>44875102You mean a horse drawn carriage?>>44875127classy
>>44875038>Takes cubic meter of Wraithsteel.>Hires manufacturer to build computer parts.>Builds magical super-computer from living metal.>What do I name the Apocalypse to come? Steve Jobs.
>>44875415>"Just normal luggage?">not know the Luggage>not knowing Discworld>on tg>>44875146Replace your legs AND add prehensile wings. Nothing like flying murder kicks.
>>44875421>yfw all apple products incorporate wraithsteel from Steve Jobs>yfw it's the reason all apple products are shiny and chrome
>>44875454oh. OH. That luggage. I assumed just a box with a handle type deal. Very practical, very sturdy carry on.
>>44875415>luggageLuggage with a capital L means a selfmoving chest with hyperspace inside of it and carnivorous habits in protecting its contents.
>>44875415>You mean a horse drawn carriage?Yes. Not an entire carriage, but the skeleton and moving parts. Articulate it so that it can transform and roll out.
>>44875454I know it's misleading to say "a" Luggage, but it's not like it was the only one in the setting.>>44875469I'm assuming with the amount of "life" in the raw material, it'd sprout legs even before you had a chance to forge it.
I'm alive. I'm gonna handle morning chores, activate the caffeine, and write. I will also address questions at that time. Now's the time to ask any more you have.
>>44876637Is Lora future Amy?
>>44876906>4 ellipsesYou disgust me.
>>44876899Lora is neither the past nor future incarnation of any of our heroes or currently-named characters. Called, writing.
>>44877562A-ha! I got you! She is a PRESENT INCARNATION!
>>44877562Is the Caretaker future Bri? I mean, have we actually checked his hip bones to assure that's a male skeleton?
>>44873106Kinetic sorcery, if you can find a teacher for it, pairs well with necromancy for the creation of rot, rust, and damage. It's a bit draining but as you can imagine, highly effective. >>44873866Transplant attempts have met with mixed success; thus far, the most successful attempts tend to lean on using demon parts. As you can imagine a lot of folks are reluctant to go there, though when they do generally succubi or incubi are bargained with, as their anatomy is closest to humanoid. The half-breed children of demons trend towards diversity, though some things tend to show up - their shadows are often animate, they have a tendency to be hale and healthy (even if they look outwardly sick and diseased) and are sensitive to magic and its uses.
>>44877608Yes, anon. You've figured it out. Lora is the present incarnation of Lora.
Just another picture for Vox's potential use. Carry on.
>>44877774Do other types of magic/sorcery also use up a persons life? or is that just necromancy?This has probably been asked.
>>44872811"Scribbles!" you call out; there is a meeting of lamia and necromancer in a tight, friendly hug. "I just had the most /amazing/ bath, so I'm feeling forgiving about the coffee. But," you add, unable to keep the grin off of your face, "my forgiveness is not without limits.""Well, it's a shame you spent some on me today," the lamia says apologetically, pulling away from the hug. She opens up a pack strapped to her belt and pulls out a bag that smells like /fucking heaven/. "Since I'm about to deliver and all.""HOW?" you ask, reaching for the coffee like a kid for candy. You hold it tight and inhale the glorious scent of the beans. "I have a friend in the Harrow with a copy of one of my anthologies," Scribbles says wryly. "I told you I could get you the real stuff. I've got the rest of it upstairs.""It smells like love," you say dreamily. "Does this mean I can write my book?" the author asks. Something about the contrast between her being strapped for war and the eager, giddy look on your face makes you break up laughing. "We'll discuss it. I haven't even had breakfast yet. /Or/ coffee! Oh gods, /Amy/ is going to be /so energetic/!" Victoria clears her throat. "Brigette expresses her sympathies, but she can't leave the Atheneum - she tried. She even tried talking Lora into letting her, but no dice.""...How?" you ask. "The same way anyone talks to an angel. She prayed."".....Huh." "Care to catch us up?" Victoria asks. > Catch them up over coffee and breakfast> Get Nathan and Amy, /then/ catch them up over coffee and breakfast> Actually, I need to find my patient first> Write-in
>>44878881It's fairly unique to necromancy, though some forms of smithing incorporate necromantic elements, and demons will sometimes ask for life force in payment.
>>44879150> Actually, I need to find my patient first
>>44879150>> Get Nathan and Amy, /then/ catch them up over coffee and breakfast
>>44879150> Get Nathan and Amy, /then/ catch them up over coffee and breakfastThere was almost no vote for 8 minutes, spooky
>>44879150>Actually, I need to find my patient firstThen> Get Nathan and Amy, /then/ catch them up over coffee and breakfastWe are a responsible medical type person.
holy crap, I think I just realized what loras real name is, Armageddon. The gods gave her the leeway to make the dungeon, and she had enough power to do so despite all of it being outside of her bailiwick, so she's probably a big name angel. On top of that she has some issues with what she was created to do, even after coming to accept the necessity of death. She is the final swing of the reaper's scythe, and the final end of all life. christ, no wonder she has issues.
>>44879150>> Actually, I need to find my patient firstjob needs gettin done
>>44879150We owe her that story now.
Hello Comcast my old friend, I've come to swear at you again...Called, writing.
>>44879420That might actually work.
>>44880590Huh you know this is the first time I've actually listened to more then just the first bit of that song.
>>44880744Disturbed's covers are godlike
>>44879150"Actually...can you give me a bit?" you ask. "I need to check up on my patient. I have this sneaking suspicion that she went and did something stupid.""Sure. Maybe your compatriots can catch us up?" Victoria suggests. "Lemme check." <Fetch, do you know where Nathan and Amy are?><The bath, milady> the bird's voice sounds a little awkward. <When they're done bathing, can you let them know that Victoria and Scribbles are waiting at the elevator?><I did not say they were bathing.>What's that supposed to - oh. /Oh/. You sigh, dig out your pipe, and pack the bowl slowly. <As soon as is courteous, then> "They'll be along when they can, if you don't mind waiting."The pair confirm that waiting is fine, and you set off in search of Silence. The first couple of people you ask have no idea where she went, and then you hear a sentence that bodes of nothing but bad shit."I'm pretty sure she went to the forge."You all but run there and find the fairy woman outside, topless and stretching. As potentially distracting as this sight would normally be, your eyes are instead drawn to the places where her wounds were yesterday. She's patched them over with solid gold, flexing as she stretches. > Wat> WHY THE FUCK?> ...So I hear silence is golden...
>>44880952>> ...So I hear silence is golden...pfffft hahahaha
>>44880952> ...So I hear silence is golden...
>>44880952She is a fae of earth, she eats coal, I am not at all surprised by the gold bandage.> ...So I hear silence is golden...
>>44880952> ...So I hear silence is golden...Fucking fey.
>>44880952> Writing in:> O...kay, I guess if that works for her...
>>44880952>...So I hear silence is golden...Yesss... good good let the snark flow through you.
>>44881337You say that like we ever stop it.>>44880952>...So I hear silence is golden...
Well that's pretty conclusive. Called, writing.
>>44881539You expected otherwise?
You know, Silence uses a gold spear as her 'main' weapon.
>>44881664Well, she uses a spear. The gold is just because she carries a gold disk with her (which is probably what she used for the patch here). If I remember right she's pulled a stone spear from the ground before.
>>44881737>a gold diskcoins if I remember correctly
I hope we get intimate with Amy and Nathan again soon, they seem to be doing well again together.
>>44881831We could've joined them in that tub....
>>44881856OI think that one's on us. what with the falling asleep on a chair in the hospital while covered in blood.
>>44881856Where were we given the option?
>>44881917The go find them option? Instead of the Silence option?
>>44881937And we were aware they were together in that manner when that option was given?From the posts above, we only found out exactly what they were doing AFTER the vote.
>>44880952"Okay," you say slowly. "I've heard that silence is golden, but this seems a bit on the nose.""Enjoying the view?" the fairy asks. "I'm a bit distracted by the big patch of living gold all over your fucking ribs," you tell her. You realize, at length, that you've been holding your pipe between your teeth without having lit it this entire time, and pause to rectify the problem. "Also in a comitted relationship.""Fair enough," Silence grants. "Why are you here?""Checking on my patient," you say frankly. "How are you feeling?""Like grim fucking death," Silence admits. "...But alive. And on the mend, and for that you have my gratitude. I don't forget who my friends are, heritor. And I can see you opening your mouth to say something stupid and selfless, so how about you shut the fuck up and let me talk."You put your pipe back between your teeth."I'll be ready for battle when it's time to assault the Baron's defenses," Silence continues. "You'll find me and mine there to play vanguard for you again. But I'd like to ask you a question, and while I don't /expect/ an answer, I'd appreciate one.""Hit me," you tell her, taking a puff on the pipe. "What, precisely, is going on?" Silence asks. > Avoid the question> Hedge your bets> Come clean
>>44882278> Come clean
>>44882278> Come cleanIf Lora hasn't demanded we keep quiet, I see no reason to. Silence might even be more willing to believe it than others here.We might also get some more information on Lora, though whether that's a good thing is more debatable and depends on whether Silence reacts positively to what we tell her.
>>44882278>Come cleanA group of assholes have bound the owner of the dungeon for various nefarious purposes and we're trying to stop them before they damage something really big, like reality.Do we really know much more then that?
>>44882278>> Come cleanShould we ask her to keep it kinda low key? Or does that not really matter?
>>44882278>Come clean>"Keep this between you and me."Silence is a pretty cool Fae.
>>44882278> Come clean"A whole lot of people, and possibly deities are beeing horribly idiotic and it falls unto me to sort shit out."
So what happens when we've destroyed the majority of the chains? Does Lora gain more freedom or ability to resist the remaining holders?
>>44882546The power keeps getting equally divided on the other chains, or something along that line.
>>44882546It's been explained that the total control spreads to the other chain bearer, but as we break the chains there's fewer rules and restrictions on what she can and can't do.>>44882278>Go somewhere private>Come clean
Alright folks, it's too close to work time for me to try to update. I'll be back a bit after midnight EST to continue!As usual, questions, feedback, discussion, and criticisms remain welcome and appreciated. Thank you all for reading and participating!
>>44882278> other : Get her take on whats going on first.If pressed.. > hedge bets.
>>44882278>Go somewhere private>> other : Get her take on whats going on first.THEN>come clean
>>44875400Just enough for a loli
>>44882964>35 cubic feet>just enoughI assume you forgot to add the 'army' part to the end of that.
>>44882964you can get about 15 adult sized statues out of a cubic meter of material. and that's if they are completely solid.
>>44883530Maybe anon likes them big?
>>44882278> Come cleanI feel like if anyone would be okay to tell this to, it'd be Silence. She's pretty invested in this place functioning as intended. Plus she seems cool.Also, this is probably impossible, or at least a bad idea, because of her ties to the mine, but does anyone else kind of want Silence to be our last party member?
>>44882278> And on the mend, and for that you have my gratitude. Did the Fae just thank us? Because I've been waiting for this.> Damn. It's rude to point out another's social gaffe bluntly. So I guess we pointedly ignore the thanks and make no comment towards it at all and simply move on to asking why the gold? > Hedge your betsFae don't play by our rules yo. So we don't tell her shit unless she is willing to swear by the darkness that eats all things to not fuck us or our plans if we tell who Laura is.
> Come clean, but without throwing caution completely to the wind.Don't lie, and don't just refuse to answer at all, but also don't go into all the details. Some things likely would be considered a betrayal of Lora to reveal, so for those bits simply tell her (accurately) that there's some parts we don't know and some parts that aren't our place to reveal, but go ahead and tell her what we honorably can.
Reminder we need to bottle some death when we get the opportunity
>>44883890I thought that was far lewder than it is at first glance.
>>44886696Nope, just a cheeky butt goblin walking toward you. the tailbone is the nose, the holes are eyes, the hips themselves make a sort of weird dimple-y smile.
Relevant picture bump!
Two hours to vote call.
>>44888013>Holy resurrection>Any type of undeadI'm sick to death of this meme
>>44882278>> Come clean
>>44888177Why are they contradictory?
>>44888013>Jesus was clerical in nature>was literally wrapped in white bandages>was literally embalmed with 70 lbs of spicesAlmost certainly was a hunefer or greater mummy
>>44882278woah woah woah.Did we just miss out on fey pussy?We lost bard pussy.We can't have fey pussy.We can't have succubus pussy.And we don't even get invited to partake in the shower sex with what we do have.This sucks.
>>44882278> Come cleanBri's an honest gal. >>44883723Silence is indeed pretty cool. I'd bet good money that she has an idea of just who Lora really is, too. But yeah, I don't think she'd be interested in leaving the Mine at all. It's her ground, after all.
>>44888462Committed relationship anon.Also, never trust the Fae.
>>44888462AND ANGEL OF DEATH PUSSY! FUCK!
>>44888115> Half truths hedge our bets.No lying to the Fae, but let's not share things like who we suspect Lora to really be and what not.
>>44888514>Also, never trust the Fae.I trust her to get me off.After Bri's done with her she'll have to be renamed Moan
>>44888330>hunefer>always Lawful EvilFuck off, Satanist.
>>44888527Lora is not really in a great place right now when it comes to physical intimacy.Plus the whole committed relationship thing.
>>44888462I'm all for getting laid next time we have the chance. >This is the future you chose
>>44888871Can I just say how much I appreciate your handling of difficult shit? A lot of writers would have played Lora's rape for sexiness, and you instead chose to focus on how fucked up it is that this is happening to her. I think that shows either a moral commitment to do right by the real people in similar situations, or a professional commitment to write characters in a way that's genuine, and either way I just have to respect the shit out of that.
>>44889131>played Lora's rape for sexinessFucking seriously?Jesus Christ, I have literal brain fucking as a fetish and that still sounds fucked up to me.
>>44889186I mean, you're not wrong, but it's kind of ridiculously common.
>>44889131I missed that, when was she raped?
>>44889287Off-screen (which is part of what I like in Vox's handling of it, honestly), earlier in this arc. The bit where she was coughing up, ah, white stuff.
>>44889309Oh fuck me I missed that, though tit was angel blood
>>44889131>played Lora's rape for sexinesswhat, no most wouldn't.
>>44889328wow, I thought I was dense.
>>44889283No, I understand that rape fetishes exist and that some porn panders to it, but the idea of a non-pornographic non-rape-fetish-dedicated work playing a rape scene for 'sexiness' is utterly baffling and abominable to me.
>>44889349It must have been late as hell when I was reading that, which chapter was it?
>>4488937225 if I'm reading my google search correctly
>>44889354That is a very appropriate reaction, but I should point out there's this show called Game of Thrones, and, well...Yeah, it's pretty fucked up. But I've seen a lot more of it than I have of actually-decent portrayals.
>>44889372I'm still at work or I'd link you. Would an anon be so kind?
>>44889372Just search for cough. in the archive this>>44889431 anon so helpfully provided.
Honestly, I felt the coughing up of semen was a little too blatant and Game of Thrones-esque. Overkill if you will.
>>44889413>>44889431>>44889437>>44889447>>44889455Thanks guys, just found it on my own, man that was fucked up
>>44889479Apparently not, I couldn't fucking tell what it was
>>44889479Believe it or not, that kind of shit happens to people who've been raped.When the fuck who's raping you starts coming down your throat, he usually doesn't care whether you're trying to breathe.
>>44889479>>44889488There's also when Lora quoted "favourite" thing said to her in the past century: "bite the pillow, filth" This was in one of the first meetings with her.
>>44889536I wonder who's doing it?
>>44889530>Believe it or not, that kind of shit happens to people who've been raped.its believable.but so is pooping and after birth. Mull over certain details, ye?
>>44889570The person who is going to have their soul tortured pretty damn hard, that is who.We should ask her who among the enemy does this or that she hates the most so we can take special care of them.
>>44889617Also losing control of your bowels when you die, ruins the ending of The Notebook
>>44889437Just remembered, she said we had "just missed" the person doing that to her.Can we attack them through our dreams? Or be attacked by them?
>>44889479I can respect that. And I appreciate the feedback.I had some...uncomfortable interviews, with very understanding friends of mine, that went into that scene. I chose to cleave to their experiences. I'm not saying this to refute your stance, only to explain my decision.>>44889488
>>44889686She meant that as "if you'd fallen asleep earlier, you'd have called me here earlier and they wouldn't have been able to do it."Though she wasn't blaming us for it.
>>44889512yeah but you're dense
>>44889659I think, Lora may get some very deserving revenge if we get a hold of whoever's been doing its chain
>>44889703>that went into that scene.Is gang rape a scene now?
>>44889757I think he meant the "us interacting with her" scene.And if it was portrayed in the quest, then yes, it would be a scene.
>>44889757What >>44889786 said, anon. My apologies for the miscommunication.
>>44889786ah, i gotcha.
>>44889868I'm not sure what the first anon's problem with the wording was, honestly.The way he asked, it's like he thought that referring to it as a scene was somehow disrespectful or dismissive of its vileness.Which doesn't make sense, because if it was an event shown in the story, it would have been a scene in the story.
>>44889952I believe he may have taken "scene" in another meaning, such as 'the local club scene ".
>>44889992yeah, i thought you said you had friends who got into the gang rape scene and was quite confused.
>>44890027I can see where that would be confusing, yes. For all future reference, their experiences were more from...Lora's side of the event, as it were. And on that depressing note, votes called, writing soon. I need dinner something fierce.
>>44890465Our condolences to them, inasmuch as we can give and they're willing to accept.
>>44890626It's appreciated. I have acquired the dinner. Time to write.
>>44882278"I'm gonna answer that, but I'd like to answer it, y'know, somewhere reasonably private.""Lead the way," Silence agrees. "...Shirt, Silence." "Right."You lead the freshly-clothed fairy somewhere a little more private. You light a new bowl and try to figure out where to begin. "A lot of what needs to be said, you already know," you tell her at last. "I've been appointed as the heritor of the Dungeon. That appointment was made by its creator, because she feels unable to continue her duties in an acceptable manner." "Aye?" Silence asks. "She's been enslaved, Silence," you say softly. "The Dungeon was created by an angel of the Death Choir, and she has been enslaved. Now the ones holding her leash are using her to break the laws of death, and for worse besides." You hand squeezes the grip of your cane. "The Baron is among them, as are others. The Traitor, the Lush, the Diviner, the Librarian, the Debtor, the Daughter, the Wyrm, the Pallbearer, and the Master remain."Silence pauses. "...Did you say the Pallbearer?""I did. Why?""It's just...I know someone by that name," she admits, quietly. "Name? Not title?" you press. "She's a ship, so...yes?"> Wat> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.> Y'know what, this sounds like the sort of thing to discuss with the others.
>>44892186>> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.
>>44892186> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.Focus, people, focus. We can talk about the Pallbearer after we kill the Baron
>>44892186>> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.Focus Bri
>>44892186> Right. I'm gonna want to come back to that point. But first, where was I? Oh yes...
Okay folks. I've finally wound down from work enough to crawl into bed and embrace death. Vote's open until I get up. Discussion, questions, comments, and critique are welcome and appreciated!Thank you all for reading and participating.
>>44892186> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.
>>44892186>> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.The ship is a person, neat
>>44892186> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.Is her captain's name Daphnes Nohansen?
>>44892186> WatIs it using the chain to connect the anchor?
>>44892186> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.I'm not sure why this matters?I'm sure there are ships called the Poet or the Moneychanger or the Wyrm. If it ain't a title, it ain't our target.
>>44892186>Okay. Back to the problems at hand.oh god it's becoming Kancolle
Vox, what would happen if someone made a boat out of wraithsteel?
>>44892186Wait, could the Pallbearer be another Fae possessing the ship? Or maybe be like Davey Jones from the Pirates franchise; the Captain and the Ship are one, and when the Captain dies, the Ship goes with him?Also, second this >>44892350I imagine that Amy and Nate will have a similar response to this information as Brianna did.>>44892893This intrigues me.
>>44893057HORY SHET!!! But you didn't name it the Enterprise!
>>44892893>Kancolle>small c>>44893105Please don't take the quests as canon.
>>44893486Oh, I've never read the /tg/ quest or watched the anime. I just remember that the main characters are humanized battleships, and was amused by the idea of an parody by Vox.
>>44893522Anime isn't canon either. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.The only canon that can be trusted is the game.
>>44893486>>44893539What are you even on about? Nobody is declaring anything as canon.
>>44893486Over an hour to reply. Anyone have this guy's average time?
If it's anything like KanColle, we're good: we just need to let Kells get UNDEAD CROC ADMIRAL ALL UP IN THIS HOUSE
>>44893549Tell that to the KanColle quest threads.
>>44893961So? Their threads are none of this quest's business.
>>44893975You're missing the point anon
>>44892186>> WatAre... are you kidding me? a frigging ship?
>>44893856Sunless Sea Deathmatch: Skelecroc Kells vs Ghost Ship Pallbearer, SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY
>>44892186>> WatHow the hell does that even work?
>>44892186>> WatThis was not expected.
>>44892186>Okay. Back to the problems at hand.wait I forgot to vote
SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK!!I'm working on the classy Bri pin-up right now, hopefully have it finished before I leave for work. Also, unsubtle bumpity for the spooky skeleton.
>>44892186>> Okay. Back to the problems at hand.We should get more information about this Pallbearer ship at some point, but for now, let's finish up the business we've already got in front of us.
>>44894098A quest is canon to itself.A show is canon to itself.When you read a series, do you assume each book is noncanon to the others?KanColle Quest is not canon to this quest, and it's of course not canon to the official KanColle material, but KCQ is canon to itself. Which is what followers of KCQ discuss.There's this amazing concept called Internal Consistency.
>>44897392>KanColle Quest>canon to itself>internally consistent
Wait, why are we jabbing back and forth about a quest that doesn't involve sexy Liches? If it doesn't have Vox or double-coffee, I don't give a fuck.
>>44897524Actually, KCQ is where the double coffee joke 'originated', as it were.Someone tried brewing coffe with Monster instead of water, and last we heard from him he'd called the paramedics because he was suffering from observable caffine poisoning.
>>44897440One, I don't read KanColle Quest.Two, I see you're running away from my point.
Alright folks, I'm alive. I need to handle morning chores, find some breakfast, and get some caffeine. I'll call the vote and update when that's done. >>44893057It would be to boats what wraithsteel blades are to swords. >>44892893>>44893105Can confirm that it will not be a shipgirl. Or shipboy, before anyone decides to be cute.
>>44898289Nate doesn't know we have elemental iron for his leg yet, does he? The coming interlude is gonna be awesome. If Amy can't crack a door lock, he can just boot the damn thing. Also, sketch is looking /much/ better. /Should/ have it completed soon, barring interruption. Brianna better be getting some time to relax and enjoy some time with her lovers. Shit's been heavy in a 'I don't think my heart can take anymore of this' kind of way.
>>44899157I hope that rest comes soon
>>44898289>to boats what the blades are to swordsSo, given the typical boat names, are either obsessed with their owner piloting them or obsessed with dominating and destroying "lesser" boats.

>>44902344Should be a button in the bottom right corner, just check the box next to the post and then hit that button.
>>44892186"...Okay, we're gonna circle back to that later," you say slowly, "but for right now the worry is the Mine, and the angel. The Baron's going to use her to defend himself, which could be problematic, depending on her power, his orders, and how we approach the issue.""You're not getting into that compound without an army," Silence warns. "Not unless you're willing to try and sneak into his mansion from the solid rock and then pray you can kill him before his men fall on you from behind.""If we could get Lora's attention and /then/ attack," you propose."...Yeah, that could work," Silence agrees with a nod. "That's it? You're this calm about this?"Silence shrugs. "There's always a would-be tyrant who thinks they can control the Dungeon. They're always wrong. Though now that I know the extent of their transgression...well." Fangs of stone shoot from the roof of the tunnel, dripping salt and water while a growling breeze rumbles the walls. "Let's say I'm upset at their temerity," Silence finishes, mildly. "I'll be ready when you are. Send for me, when you assemble your war council." <Fetch, progress?> You ask, taking the dismissal for what it is and heading back in the direction of the Shaft. <They're ready, and waiting to talk to you. They seem...a little shy.>Of course they do. > Treat it like no big deal> Inquire
>>44902490>> InquireI'm sorry, who's shy?
>>44902529Amy & Nate. Implying that Fetch let on that he told you.
>>44902395Dammit. Says I can't because the post is too old. Ah well..win some, lose some?>>44902490>Treat it like no big deal.Of course, we should tease them for leaving Bri out of the fun. Lady Necromancer can get some lovin' later.
>>44902560So is inquiring inquiring as to why they're shy or why they're fucking without us or why they're fucking at all?
>>44902651Mostly the latter, in the vein of "does this mean you're good now?"
>>44902490> Treat it like no big deal
>>44902651I'm assuming that Amy was full up on adrenaline after gutting some of the Baron's goons, and being the lovable little murderbird that she is, she wanted to../express/ herself. But of course, Brianna was busy saving Silence from iron poisoning, so she grabbed Nate. No worries. Brianna's gonna tap both of those later.
>>44902713>>44902736>>44902620>>44902573Woah you fuckers, read that post from Vox. We should communicate with the people we're in a relationship with. Not being painfully upfront and honest with conversation topics is how things like possibly deceased fiances crop up.
>>44902573You still can try deleting just the image, I think?
>>44902490>> Treat it like no big deal
>>44902799I don't think we need to be there everytime they fuck, although I would like to.
>>44902490>Inquire>changed vote and deleted old one.
>>44902859Who cares about the sex. This is about "are you good now?"
>>44902490>> InquireWith an additional dash of "so how was it?"
>>44902900Ah, well I'm sure they're fine fuck I feel petty
Called, writing. As a personal aside, I do feel your pain with regards to missing out on fun times. That said, it's still nice to see that anon's concerned over the relationship end of things. This'll be my final update before work.
>>44903342>missing out on fun timeMissing out on fun time seems to be Bri's personal code from the way she acts/we're playing her.
>>44903482I don't have enough this is the future you chose pictures.
>>44903482So what you're saying is that Nate and Amy, now that they have reconciled, should make sex at Bri to get her to do something other than work?It might just work.
>>44903611>It might just work>saying the trigger wordNote, avoid saying needful, work or job. Any of these words trigger the Bri and causes it to begin shaking involuntarily and crying before running off to do necromancy.
>>44903749And I thought our only issues were the coffee addiction and the chain smoking
>>44903793Bri is 60% caffeine and 40% lung cancer at this point
>>44903793Chain-smoking crimes against humanity, don't forget.
>>44903845She also does it with the pipe
>>44903887I don't see what Nathan has to do with smoking.
>>44903942Do you think we could light a sin-against-all-life cigar on his soon-to-be new leg?
>>44904031Strapping a cigarette lighter to the stump of someone's amputated limb is usually regarded as a war crime, anon.
>>44902490It's not hard to find your lovers; they wait just to the side of the bath area, with Fetch a respectful distance away. Nathan's on his peg leg, not leaning on Amy, though the half-harpy stays close to him. Their expressions are just the cutest combination of afterglow and 'we're sorry', and you can't help but grin. "So," you say, taking your pipe out of your mouth. "Does this mean we've all forgiven each other?"Nathan coughs, awkwardly. "...I owe /you/ an apology too, Brianna. For much the same reason, really. Thanks for making sure I didn't choke to death with my head in my ass.""You're fine," you say with a shrug. "I'm just glad we all understand each other. A little sad that I missed out on getting laid but, eh, I got to see Silence topless.""Aww," Amy objects. "I wanna - he's giving me a look, isn't he?""Totally is," you confirm. "Well he looks at Kells' erotic woodcuts," Amy says with a sniff, while Nathan chokes in shock. You laugh and pull your lovers into a hug. "You thought about what you're gonna do with Talon?" you ask Amy. "...Well...circumstances may kinda force me to kill him?" Amy says, a little awkwardly. "Assuming they don't, though, I wanna be straight-up. He deserves that much.""Harpy politics?" Nathan asks, gently. "You have /no/ idea," Amy agrees. "Alright, we're burning the day away," you murmur. > War council> Private breakfast> Catch Victoria & Scribbles upAND> Spend the day helping the medics (work)> Spend the day with Amy & Nate (relax)> Other activity?

>>44905008True, but doesn't Scribbles want to meet the eight-foot tower of badass fairy that fought a molten iron elemental and won? Exaggeration is a fundamental part of storytelling. Also, I want to see Silence get weirded out by a fangirling lamia.

> MournersYou motherfuck, I read this as it was coming out and _only now_ do Margrave is literally the _Dread Captain Margrave_.
>>44907448Vox's pathfinder novel includes a character called the Margrave, who's a pirate captain. Going by pathfinder classes, he'd be a Dread. This pun only caught up to me a few minutes ago.
>>44907478This is going way over my head anon. I am sorry.
>>44904291> War breakfast> Spend the day with Amy & Nate (relax)
>>44907504...a Dread Pirate Roberts joke? Maybe?
>>44904291> Catch Victoria & Scribbles upWe can war council tomorrow. Somehow I doubt we're fighting another battle today.> Spend the day with Amy & Nate (relax)We kind of need it, and frankly, we're a better battlefield medic than we are a post-battle medic. Too much of our healing needs to be done quickly.
>>44907372>>44907478Don't feel bad anon, you're the first person to get the joke. The guy who wrote the class still hasn't picked up on it.
>>44908166Could you explain it, maybe?Is it >>44907989?
>>44908186Vox works for dreamscarred pres.they make pathfinder shit.Some guy made a class called "dread"Vox wrote a novel with a character called Margrave who was this class.Dread Pirate MargraveFunny.
>>44908250>Vox wrote a novel with a character called Margrave who was this class....Who is a pirate (captain). (Important missing info.)
>>44908250>>44908267So I did get it right, then - it was a Dread Pirate Roberts joke. ...hooray!
Would it be possible to make a submarine using Wraithsteel? Just curious
One and a half hours and change to call.
>>44910005Presumably, though there's the question of WHY.Plus I don't think normal subs have been invented yet.
>>44910065Why not? Also, Sunless Sea?
>>44910169>Sunless SeaYou mean a sea somewhere with no sun? Like, say, the Dungeon?
>>44910598There's a floor of the dungeon called Sunless Sea. Exactly that.
>>44911750Yeah. It's a sea, in a place with no sun.He mentioned it like it meant that submarines existed. I don't see the connection.
>>44911750The Pallbearer might actually be the ship Silence knows, or the captain of that ship nicknamed after it, and they might rule the Sunless Sea level.>>44904291>> War councilIndecisive about the other option. Bri has deserved some rest and might need it, but there is still work to be done, so no vote from me.
I'm home. I'm alive. Votes called, will write after I acquire THE FUCKING FOOD. >>44910005Like making a ship from wraithsteel, this would require an /absurd/ amount of wraithsteel. Presuming you could get such a bounty, you could indeed make a sub from wraithsteel. This presumes you have even the tiniest clue what you're doing, mind. The thing still has to /work/.
>>44913294So is it possible to get some wraith steel and make a goddamn mech suit? Is it possible to use necromancy to bring back the corpse of a great dictator and then bind them to said mech suit?If so is it possible to summon mecha-hitler unto the world?
>>44913349See previous comment re: the thing has to /work/. Look at where we are /now/ with regard to mechs. Wraithsteel helps to an extent but it doesn't help to /that/ extent.
>>44913391Welp, so much for summoning mecha hitler and beginning the fourth reich.
>>44913391A submarine, a mech for that matter, is less complex than wings. What makes prosthetics so different?
>>44913507It doesn't matter how simple or complex something is if you don't have the knowledge in the first place.
>>44913507Overall complexity is not the same as understanding, for one. Technology doesn't always move in ways that neatly match the understanding of one field to another. This world's got more reason than ours to invest in prostethics (to wit: fucking monster attacks, mages, etc) and as a result there's greater strides there. More to the point, the design of Amy's new wings, or Nate's new legs, are being aided by them being made from materials that are in a sense still alive and remember being part of a living whole. Remember the 'wraithsteel helps to an extent' comment? Between Amy's harpy magic and the wraithsteel's aid, the wings have a lot of design problems smoothed over; likewise for Nate's leg if a living material, such as the elemental iron, is used. TL;DR people have had more reason to learn arms and shit than attempting to learn how to travel in tubes underwater.
>>44913598>TL;DR people have had more reason to learn arms and shit than attempting to learn how to travel in tubes underwater.A: "Ok so we have a ton of monster attacks injuring people. What do we research?"B: "yea gotta fix them up; some of those monsters have magical properties that may help."C: "No! We should make vessels for exploring unknown frontiers!"A: "You know there'd me more monsters there."C: "Who cares? Exploration!"A&B: silent stare "Get out."
Still acquiring the food but I brought a present from my partner
>>44914241That is just adorable.
>>44914241Someone get my insulin, my diabetes came back
>>44914241Can we make like the frame from the iron and all the joints/musculature/cabling from wraith steel?And reverse for the wings if weight is an issue?
>>44914382> MRW Anon has put more thought and care into this subject than I have. I DUNNO, LEMME GET BACK TO YOU WHEN I ACTUALLY HAVE AN ANSWER!EATING DINNER NOW. STILL NEED TO KILL THREAD.
>>44914565What's your favorite color?
>>44914615Red, especially bright, rich reds - the scarlet flash of aterial blood, the color of strawberries and velvet ropes, and the bitter burn of coals gripped by ash.
>>44914645 >velvet ropesalso nice colour choice
>>44914645Nice descriptions, though I prefer the darker reds myself; everything between ruby and mahogany.
Might want to get that next thread going soon, Vox.
