You polish off your beetle bites-Not any sort of frozen snack, but a beetle you happen to be currently biting. It goes a long ways towards improving your mood. A hungry spider is an angry spider.Which you consider to be utterly natural. It takes a lot of energy to do the things you do. Webs and magic and spears and fighting. Noone would ever blame you for being a bit cranky when your stomach is starting to rumble.Not to your face, anyway. The forest-field is thinning, stalks of wheat spreading till you can see some distance, the gate slowly unveiling itself. It's the same as before- mystical looking stones atop a wide platform, stairs descending. Not all the way, though. There's a cave beneath your point of departure, a yawning, cavernous darkness. You feel, somewhat detachedly, that you should be worried. That any other adventurer would have their hackles up, weapons ready as their bodies start to fill with adrenaline. As it is, you're licking your lips with the sort of dopey looking smile you'd find on an exceptionally large man at a buffet. >Hunger or not, there's no point in being stupid. Caution!>You know what lights up dark caves? (Lightning!/Fire!)>You could just bury it. But then you couldn't eat...>Other (?)

>>44883387Caution it is!Writing!
>>44883402Keep a local copy, then upload what you change to Google drive.
>>44883858This'd be my suggestion.That or just start another one picking up from where the first stopped.
You could just rush straight to the gate. Or collapse the cave. Probably. Or set fire to everything, or shoot lightning down into the dark.You could. But even thinking about it is enough to conjure up ghastly apparations of your mother, rebuking you for being a terrible adventurer. So this time, you ready your spear, tuck away your snake, and snap your helm up over your face as you step into the clearing. It's quiet. That's it- That's what has been bothering you all this time. It's so abominably quiet, so artificial. Even caverns echo with drops of water, cities are full of the murmur of crowds and the plains softly sway with a gust of wind. But here- Here, aside from you and the monsters, there's nothing. The first realm had that fake breeze, at least, but this one is just...Well. Next floor, then. You advance, spearpoint weaving in the air before you, an unveiled threat. You push the stillness to the back of your mind, calling up a little burst of power- the earth trembles a bit, empty and forlorn, before you push the stones forward by force of will, a crackling wave of rock pitching into the cave, smashing into whatever may be trying to hide beneath.You wait outside as roars issue from below, vaguely irritated at how common magical darkness is- It's just a cave, you should be able to see. Instead, you're left standing outside, like someone without six eyees who can see in the godsdamn dark. Luckily, magically constructed monsters have a temper as short as yours, and the ground trembles under the footfalls of some angry beast as it smashes through the stalactites littering the roof of the cavern as it emerges. Luckily for the god of the dungeon, it isn't a weasel.
>>44884451It is, however, some sort of vegetarian option bear, a prospect you'd never considered, and are already becoming upset about.It turns in the centre of the clearing, shaggy overgrown fur twined through with vines, grass and flowers, and bellows a war cry of it's own as it makes ready to charge. If there isn't meat somewhere in that, you'll be unhappy. >Circle strafe!>Meet the charge head on!>Spider-Joust?>Other(?)
>>44884470>Spider-Joust?spider joust.SPIDER JOUST
>>44884470>>Spider-Joust?FOR GLORY AND MEAT!
>>44884470>>Spider-Joust?FLAMING SPIDER JOUST!
>>44884470>Spider-Joust?Flaming spider joust is a go. Maybe with added lightning for when it connects.
>>44884470>>Spider-Joust?Make sure to put on armour and helmet for the full effect. Also safety when charging a giant bear again.
>>44884451>So this time, you ready your spear, tuck away your snake, and snap your helm up over your face as you step into the clearing.>tuck away your snake
>>44884470>>Spider-Joust?One-liner challenge begins:>Time for some gardening
>>44883858>>44883893I'll give it a shot. Or maybe try uploading a thread at a time, and linking between them. The larger issue with the old system was trying to implement the table of contents to allow people to easily skip to where they wanted to read.
>>44884470>>44884537Seconding this, sadly we don't have a visier to push down.
>>44884470Is it possible to just set fire to the bear? Or way too easy to spread around?
>>44884470>Spider-Joust?As a Note Jello Voltron is officially a thing, five color coated slimes can now combine into a level 1 adventuring party's worst nightmare
No fire. It's been hinted at that fire is a big no-no in this dungeon.
>>44884542She's probably just coiled around the bridges between our back-skull and back-chitin.Though I love the idea of us having a little box that we can just open, coil her up into, and then close and put into a pocket somewhere.
>>44884537>>44884587Our helmet's already up.>you ready your spear, tuck away your spear, and snap your helm up over your face
>>44884643>No fire. It's been hinted at that fire is a big no-no in this dungeon.Wheat... Flour? Could the dungeon suddenly become much more explosive?

>>44884728>>44884731>>44884741Who snuck in lizard dice?
>>44884701Explosive dungeon? Theoretically?Well we have two fliers, either of which could carry snake. Lyra could possibly tank quite a bit of concussive force, and heat hasn't really affected us much. The only really vulnerable member is our wolf, unless her freezing is just that bullshit.
>>44884716 88 44 76
Looks like 88 44 and 76!Writing!
>>44884763We... we might have borrowed your dice for our own cause.
>>44884784So we charge well, but take the bear's charge poorly, but recover and avoid any major damage?
>>44884807Have you learned nothing? Challenging mother is always a bad idea, even when you crit
Guys, serious discussion here.When do we turn back if the dungeon just keeps being layers of wheat?
>>44884856But fishmen had to die! We needed the wraith of Godzilla! They stole our hat man! Thats a line you simply don't cross!
>>44884901Once we found loot.We don't leave without getting at least one piece of loot for everyone.More importantly>>44884716Have none of the monster dropped monster cores sofar?
>>44884901Slowly grow more and more frustrated until we reach the bottom of the dungeon, at which point we start a fire then rush out as fast as we can, cackling madly along the way.
>>44884856To be fair, lizard kind of went off on one with the whole waking mother thing, i think most anons would not have chosen to try wake her up.
>>44884942see, that's the thing.What if there is no bottom and it's just wheat all the way down?
>>44884901I'm all for turning back now. No loot, traps or interesting scenery, except the experience of watching the world of increasingly smaller wildlife.
>>44884935>monster coresThe weasels were weasels.The GIANT weasels, I think we were too annoyed to bother checking each one as we stomped them.The beetle blinded us, but presumably we got its core while eating.
>>44884981Then we find the Giant Barn and kill the Giant Horses and eat horseflesh and make a fortune from glue.
>>44884981Then Lyra declares jihad on wheat.
>>44884995>The beetle blinded us, but presumably we got its core while eating.We were supposed to collect them, thats why I'm asking to see if there are special criteria for getting one, the weasels are still monsters spawned by the dungeon.
>>44884991We're TWO levels in.Have you ever seen a dungeon with interesting shit on the first two levels? If level FIVE is still wheat, then there might be a problem.But then again, it's called the Plains of Gold and HATE.
>>44885026Nah.Her majesty, Queen Lyra of the northern forrest of monsters, hereby declairs this dungeon to be crap, and condems it to incineration.
>>44885052>Have you ever seen a dungeon with interesting shit on the first two levels?Yes, plenty. We have been in one actually.
>>44885069No we haven't.We've been in a stupid wizard's stupid masturbatory monument to his own "greatness" that he deliberately designed to bait adventurers.Real dungeons were supposed to be better than that.
>>44885059Nin, What are you doing, Get off the internet.
>>44885069>Yes, plenty. We have been in one actually.What? No, we've only been in one dungeon, and it was a deeply disappointing, single level tribute to a wizards ego.
Once we get out of here, we have to send letters to our siblings.ARIA, at least, needs to hear about how shit this dungeon is.And everyone else will be interested in hearing from us.
>>44885120>We've been in a stupid wizard's stupid masturbatory monument to his own "greatness"Thats what most dungeons are.
>>44885133Maybe Anon is referring to the stuff under the old city?? Also first thread since reading the archives whoo!!
>>44885174I'd say keep the new evolution secret.. but how fast is word of earthquake queen spider spreading?
>>44885133>What? No, we've only been in one dungeon>No, we haven't been in one dungeon, we've only been in one dungeonWut?
>>448851743 pages of us complaining about wheat and Weasels.At the very end hastily added onP.S. I evolved again
>>44885174Sending letters is a good idea.Though it might be good to suggest this dungeon if our sister is feeling like she needs some party co-ordination practice (which we should probably be doing, since its a very unthreatening dungeon to us).
>>44885217>P.S. I evolved againThat has to be on Mom's letter too.Imagine them getting it at the same time.>Suddenly, in the distance to the north and east, you hear two voices screaming your name.
>>44885210>We have been in a dungeon with interesting shit on the first two levels>No, we've only been in one dungeon and it was single level and shit.
>>44885120>>44885133Disappointing dungeon is still a dungeon, and we found neat stuff in it, entire piles of loot, Jins amulet, our spear, lots of books for Sara.
>>44885296It had interesting shit in it though even if the dungeon itself was disappointing, we got a great necklace for Jin.
>>44885217P.P.S. Also I may have caused a diplomatic incident.P.P.P.S. Help the humans think I'm Queen.
>>44885296The dungeon being shit doesn't mean it had no interesting shit in it, it did, we got piles of it.
>>44885217By the time she gets it she might have evolved again too.She's level 71 according to the pastebin, and that's out of date considering it doesn't mention her adventuring party or (boy)friend.Also all of our siblings are still apparently 113 days old.
>>44885345>(boy)friend.Man people salty over not getting anywhere with the dumbass "tehe we need to catch cute boys~ in taverns" now projecting that shit on Aria are fucking obnoxious.
>>44885305Most of it was pretty disappointing though. That fucking Beetle was more of a threat than both of the golden golem bosses.>>44885340P.P.P.P.S Met Aunt told her about Ellie.
>>44885369Just ignore their faggotry.
>>44885369People like that will never leave, just let it be, nothing will come of it and they will shut up at some point, just like the wingman shit.
>>44885305>>44885329>>44885344Isn't there a difference between manmade "dungeons" and extradimensional monster-spawning god-tied dungeons like we're in right now?
>>44885345Hate to bring this up, but if we are only 113 days old and are already on our fourth form, we are doing better than Admiral Turbo Sue.
Dammit! You say one thing on twitter but then you go ahead and make a thread!....Curse your web of lies!...Also have a baby desert spider-kid.
>>44885371>Most of it was pretty disappointing though.That wasn't what the statement was about, it DID have interesting shit in it, not everything in it was interesting, but thats pretty unlikely to ever be the case anyway.
>>44885394Free blessings at the end of one, aggravation and rage at the end of the other?
Your friends move off you with a single request, fluttering, flying and stepping to the ground in equal measure. And you start to run. You remember jousting. Sort of. You remember the kind of jousting shown in movies, or on tv. Heroic knights and all that, squaring off in tournaments. Mostly, you're just trying to recreate the speed and the violence. You have't much use for chivalry. Your speed reaches an impressive crescendo, legs churning as you tuck your spear close, ready to drive it forth into the knave who opposes you.The bear has likewise reached a speed you would ascribe to a motorized vehicle before an animal, but common sense left the building when you woke up a spider. It's seconds before impact when your treacherous brain reminds you that jousting is done with lances, and lances are designed to break. You're given a split second of slow-motion resentment when your spear digs into the bears meaty shoulder and promptly transforms into an entirely usess boomerang shaped hunk of metal.The split second after that is devoted to the bear shoulder checking you, driving the wind from your chest with a haggard breath as you spin away from it, dizziness and aggravation warring in your head as it raises a mossy paw to slap down. You smash your buckler into it's face with an angry hiss, more a distraction then an attack. It works, though. The paw whistles through the air as it goes, and you duck it with a simple motion, stepping closer to the bear. >Something- There was something bears can't do, right? If you do something, they can't...>The enchantment on the spear is pretty resilient. Try and reach it?>Bear fist fight!>Other (?)
>>44885394>Isn't there a difference between manmade "dungeons" and extradimensional monster-spawning god-tied dungeons like we're in right now?There are, they're both dungeons though.>>44885425Most of the sentient ones don't give blessings, only very few specific god blessed ones do. This one for example doesn't.>>44885444>Something- There was something bears can't do, right? If you do something, they can't...
>>44885369>>44885381>>44885393Did all y'all miss her scene where one of her adventuring party members expressed interest in her (which she was oblivious to) and also shared her interest in gems and rocks (where she was embarrassedly interested in seeing his rock collection when he offered)?
>>44885444>>The enchantment on the spear is pretty resilient. Try and reach it?Not only would we get our spear back but make nice use of it's lightning enchantment.
>>44885444>The enchantment on the spear is pretty resilient. Try and reach it?Magical sense play?
>>44885444>>Something- There was something bears can't do, right? If you do something, they can't...oh noes our spear is all bent out of shape whatever shall we do...
>>44885444>Something- There was something bears can't do, right? If you do something, they can't...
>>44885462How does that make him her boyfriend you dipshit?
>>44885490Cause it to melt and reform into spikes inside the bears body?>>44885504Pretty damn obvious its a joke you autist.
>>44885444>>Something- There was something bears can't do, right? If you do something, they can't...
>>44885462Yeah, that 8bviously means the girl whith no idea of romance being even a thing will have the guy who tried hit on her once as boyfriend.
>>44885462Did you miss the part where she didn't even get what he wanted and didn't care about him at all until he mentioned shiny rocks?
>>44885504air quotes.>>44885515thats an idea.
>>44885444>Bear fist fight!
>>44885515>Pretty damn obvious its a joke you autist.It was a joke the first time, by now its just idiotic.
>>44885416I still consider Lyra better on the ground that she isn't morally repugnant.
>>44885444>You have't much use for chivalry.Pah, you have the making of a proper knight in shining armor Lyra. Just ask Nin. (Don't ask Nin)
>>44885594But anon she gives out headpats
>>44885444>and promptly transforms into an entirely usess boomerang shaped hunk of metal.We 'really' need a new spear.
Something bears can't do?Roll 4d100!
>>44885594Plus, quest. Imagine how long this quest would be if we grew at anything approaching a sane rate.
>>44885664You mean we need a spear and magic helmet?
Rolled 95, 100, 93, 75 = 363 (4d100)>>44885664False. We need higher quality materials to make a spear from.>>44885673
Rolled 87, 97, 76, 10 = 270 (4d100)>>44885673
Rolled 85, 27, 21, 51 = 184 (4d100)>>44885673FOR THE SPIDER QUEEN!!
>>44885504>>44885540It doesn't. It makes him her (boy)friend, because there was a definite potential for a romantic connection that may or may not have been realized. Hence the (boy) part being in brackets.>>44885542Did you miss the part where I mentioned that she was oblivious to his interest in her?Also why so salty about a joking mention of the potential for a romantic partnership between two NPCs, anons? Are you hoping for Lyra and Aria to get together or something?
Rolled 76, 60, 36, 1 = 173 (4d100)>>44885673Where do bears go? A spiders stomach, of course.
Rolled 5, 60, 67, 47 = 179 (4d100)>>44885673
>>44885690SPIDER DICE HAVE RETURNED! DAM MIT NIN!
>>44885690Oooh spider dice are back.
>>44885690WAKE ME UP
>>44885690It appears we do indeed need higher quality spear materials.
>>44885698I'm so happy I posted because>>44885707doesn't count!
>>44885701>because there was a definite potential for a romantic connectionDifferent anon here, but there was no such potential. It was literally just a off-joke about Arias greed for shiny rocks. She didn't give the remotest of fucks about he guy and will continue to not once her shiny rock lust has been satisfied.You are pretty much just brewing headcanon, thats cool, but keep it to yourself.
>>44885701>because there was a definite potential for a romantic connectionNo there wasn't.
>>44885690Good gods I actually feel sorry for that bear.
>>44885690Ahhh it's good to see our dice back.
>>44885690At one point the god of this dungeon is going to throw up their hands, say "fuckit", and throw a dragon at us.
>>44885824We shall call him sniffles.
>>44885444Wheres nin when we need her, she can eat the vegetable menace!
>>44885824Which will make meeting a real dragon real awkward when Lyra is thinking of having dragon Tbone steaks.
>>44885701>Also why so salty about a joking mention of the potential for a romantic partnership between two NPCs, anons? Are you hoping for Lyra and Aria to get together or something?Yes, I'm, in fact, insecure because this single joke about Aria being oblivious as fuck to romantic intentions could spoil my agenda of having Aria and Lyras rivalry culminate in hot sapphic incestious spider love.You got me figured out.It sure has nothing to do with you being annoying fuck in making that joke for the milionst time trying to push your shit no one else cares about.
>>44885847Oh my god...We've given her a taste of bear.
>>44885824Hmm what kind of evo could Ezzy get from both eating dragon bits and using it's fangs as swords and scale leather as armor?
>>44885876She could turn into a Bearzerker lamia.
>>44885864Its funny, because your complaining about someone being obnoxious by being obnoxious.Is this how a player base turns toxic or is it just a single issue thing?Fucken drop it, seriously, you both look like asses.
>>44885864>hot sapphic incestious spider loveI don't care about the rest of your post, but I approve of incestous sapphic spider love.Should be Sara though.
>>44885896> turns toxicOh sweet summer child
>>44885896>Is this how a player base turns toxic or is it just a single issue thing?You're new here huh?
>>44885896It's 4chan, this is pretty tame >>44885902Anon don't make me get the spray bottle.
>>44885902>Should be Sara though.I'm glad to hear I wasn't the only one who thought that.
>>44885919>>44885920More being sarcastic and dry, not the easiest tone to get across via text.
>>44885941>Anon don't make me get the spray bottle.I'm a man of refined and acquired tastes, what can I say.
>>44885768>>44885769Really? Neither of you think there was a chance for romance there in any way at all, just because she didn't acknowledge/recognize his interest in her in that specific instance?Unless she's actually asexual, I doubt she'd remain so oblivious to him, especially given that they're likely to be spending more time together in the future given their shared interest in gems and the fact that she's nearing the age where monsters reach sexual maturity (and start getting interested in such things).This doesn't mean they WILL, it means they COULD, which is why the (boy) part of (boy)friend was in brackets, as a JOKING POSSIBILITY rather than a definite thing.>>44885864This is literally the first time I've made that joke. Others might've and probably have made it before me, but you can fuck right off if you think that means nobody else is allowed to joke about it.
>>44885947>>44885902sara is a funny way of saying all three.
>>44885988That could get logistically difficult with all the spiderbutt, but I approve of your will to seek the challenge anon.
>>44886006What can I say Four leaf clovers are lucky.
>>44885988>>44886006Maximum over spiderbutt
>>44885988Well damn, now I will be accompanied all night by the image of Aria and Lyra being dressed up in "new fashion" by Elle while Sara "experiments" with them.Thanks.
>>44886006Well they can walk on walls anon, im sure they could manage something.I say from a kind of morbid curiosity viewpoint.
>>44885864>>44885902>>44885947>>44885988>>44886006Give me til next thread for a pastebin, but seriuosly Aria or Sara? I gotta know know
>>44886046It seems we have decided all four sisters need to taste of the forbidden ruit.
>>44886046I like Elle too
>>44886046Aria is competative sister,Sara is sadist sister.
>>44886046Sara is probably easier to make work, also fluffier.
>>44885983I think it's been stated that while monsters do get large quickly. It has also been stated that they reach sexual maturity at the same time as humans.
>>44886066>>44886075>>44886077I'll do more later right now's gonna be one on one
>>44886046Sara as a protective/loving gentle first time.Aria as a competitive pseudo-hate fuck, probably prefaced by a spar that gets them both hot and bothered.Elle as bondage, where Lyra's the sub and somewhat worried that she's gotten in over her head.
>>44886082Makes me think, the speed at which monsters advance seem to be partially inherited. Lyra's kids could be worse than she is.
>>44886082If memory serves, I think it's been said they notice things at 2 average or latest, but are infertile for a long while.
>>44886112>Sara as a protective/loving gentle first time.Its either that, or Sara getting really freaky.>>44886101Sara then.
>>44886082Ergh, we had this debate last threadhttps://ask.fm/REQM/answers/118058724957Sexual maturity and interest 2 years at the latest, actual fertility takes a while longer.
>>44886133That basically translates to a very long experimentation stage/equivilence of teenager monsters minus the teen pregnancy part.
>>44886124our mother had her second evolution in her 30'sI don't think inheritance is much of a factor in Lyra's or her siblings advancement. If I remember right, its how much they do as children more than anything that sets the rate of growth. (which Is also why Ezzy and Nin are going to take the longest)
>>44886124It's largely based on how much experience one gets in the first month.We're fast because we were fighting fucking everything (lightning wolf, kobolds, lizards, necromancer), and we pulled our siblings along so they got a bonus too.Mom was basically locked in the nest for the first few YEARS, so she actually probably has a stunted growth rate.
>>44886178huh, I must have missed that.Imagine explaining that to a partner"so, we've been doing this for a while, and I actually have no idea how old you are or when your birthday is""Oh, I'm Five"Hilarity ensues.
>>44886101Anons one last question, is Sara on top yes/no?
>>44886209>I don't think inheritance is much of a factor in Lyra's or her siblings advancement.I think I remember REQM once talking about ho he isn't sure yet how he would let the parents evolution level eflect in their child, if they might be born in a higher tier or not.
>>44886292not sure how that works with spiderbutt.
>>44886292Initially Lyra needs to take charge to show her everything, but as she grows increasingly confident she starts topping.
>>44886300Oh, I missed a word. That should say "rate of advancement"makes more sense.
>>44886292No, power bottom
>>44886292At first yes, caught up in a scientific fervor, but quickly looses steam as she realizes what she's doing.
>>44886300Well, from an evolutionary point of view, if it did, then everyone born would eventually be blazing fast growth or be out-competed horribly.But this is a magic setting so logic doesn't always apply..
>>44886307Is Sara Dominate or submissive? Is she in charge or notI have spider non euclidean 4-way on the todo list.ALso Anons add things to my todo list
Bears can't...You dodge a set of snarling, snapping jaws, easily large enough to engulf your head.It was something stupid, you remember. Something that, at the time, you had considered utterly insane. One of your friends had brought it up over dinner. You can't even remember his name, just the video being played of some man who'd-Another paw rakes the air, absurdly sized claws tipping each toe. You remember! Bears can't bite you if you stick your arm down their throat!Wait, you think, your hand halfway into the bear's mouth already. Wouldn't that only apply to bears that are small enough that your arm would be an actual obstruction?Your brain processes your mistake far faster this time, apparently desperate to prove itself once more.Fast enough, even, that you correct it ong before the bear can react. The result is gruesome, to say the least. You twist your arm sideways before the mouth even begins to close, throwing your elbow forwards, maneuvering your arm to wedge the beast's mouth open- You brace a fist against its open jaw with a good few seconds to spare before it tries to fight back, teeth closing in on your armoured limb. You uncurl your arm.It manages a peculiar sound of pain before the teeth splinter and the jaw snaps bloodily open, hanging loose at it's throat. It staggers away in pain, and you aren't one to allow an advantage to pass. Your own claws rake forwards, catching its retreating throat, tearing vines and fur and flesh with ease, driving the retreating ursine to the ground, ripping your spear free- a moments attention returning it to a sharpened, vicious weapon that you apply with aplomb.
>>44886360Your mother would be proud.So long as you left the bit about jousting out of the story, anyway.Your breath is a little staggered, excitement and bloodlust bleeding off as you stand over your kill. The gate is only meters away, but more importantly- and far closer-Bear.>You can just. Store it. For later. After a little snack.>Bear party? Bear party. >Drag it through the gate. Eat in some new scenery. >Other (?)
>>44886378>Bear party? Bear party.
>>44886348I imagine the first month is the main rate setter, but as a area gets more dangerous children are sheltered more, leading to a yoyo effect in monster levels that balances out.Just because you have a kick ass parent does not mean your going to survive charging in as a kid when everything else is also leveled up. Hanging back till your older (and thus slowing progression back to normal) is the prime survival strategy.
>>44886242>Wait, I need a condom->Oh, don't worry about that, I can't get pregnant.>O-oh, erm, I-I'm sorry to hear that.>What? Why? It'll happen when I'm older.>Happen when you're older? How old ARE you?>Three.And then the bard realized this one night stand was a little more complicated than he'd thought.
>>44886378>>Bear party? Bear party.
>>44886378>>Drag it through the gate. Eat in some new scenery.
>>44886378>You can just. Store it. For later. After a little snack.
>>44886378>Drag it through the gate. Eat in some new scenery. Our friends are going to be looking at us like we're insane, arent we?
>>44886378>>You can just. Store it. For later. After a little snack.Bear party? Bear party.
>>44886378>Drag it through the gate. Eat in some new scenery.Some people would brag by saying this dungeon run was like a picknick. for Lyra its just true.
>>44886378>Drag it through the gate. Eat in some new scenery.
>>44886378>Bear party? Bear party.>Also, look after that spear.
>>44886378>Bear party? Bear party. So would we have lost the arm if we'd rolled a 1 in the second spot rather than a 100?
>>44886445Maybe not lost, given its armoured, but it would have been likely shredded heavily.
>>44886378>>You can just. Store it. For later. After a little snack.
>>44886445Lyras leg took a blow that could break down a castle gate and wasen't even scratched. Her chitin is tough as all get out. I think it would have just been really awkward and pinned.
>>44886378>Drag it through the gate. Eat in some new scenery.Hopefully someplace sunny
>>44886492It was actually the skull on her butt that took the hit.
>>44886492>Lyras leg took a blow that could break down a castle gateUnder extremly heavy Protection buff though, she is not as resilient right now. And even then the wolves managed to crack her chitin.
>>44886513Ah, i miss-remembered then, sorry.>>44886521Her spar with the duke was after evolving, well after the wolves.
looks like dragging ekes it out.Writing!
>>44886492It's kinda funny how totally unfair Lyra is statwise.
>>44886539>Her spar with the duke was after evolvingI didn't think you were refering to that one because she took no blows to her leg back then.
>>44886521Most of our non human bits are indestructible
>>44886567We got a late game adventurer's two hander with one hand, while fighting his equally skilled sister. Kinda unfair doesn't begin to describe it.
>>44886572They have been destroyed before.
>>44886572>Most of our non human bits are indestructibleThey aren't. Only our skull is practically indestructible.
>>44886572I'd say extremely resilient. I'd expect an extremely large, nasty brute to be a threat. Or someone with a weapon that lolnopes armor. The skull, though, I'd expect could survive a railgun point-blank
>>44886590*caught a late
>>44886591When in the middle of a mini monster army, at a lower evolution level.>>44886597As far as we are aware. Again, not met anything really silly strong since we evolved.
>>44886572>Most of our non human bits are indestructibleThey aren't, our chitin is very tough, like extremly good ar mor level tough, but not anywhere near indestructible- Not even virtually indestructible like the skull.
>>44886620>When in the middle of a mini monster army, at a lower evolution level.Ridiculously buffed up on protection blessing. I significantly doubt Lyras evolution gave her as much of a resiliance boost as buff from protecting hundreds of people.
>>44886611>spiders on spaceships
>>44886567Funny, yes, but she definitely earned what she's got.
>>44886620We had the Blessing of Protection on overdrive back then and still got hurt pretty bad, we are not anything close to indestructible.
>>44886644That brings up a point. How does protection blessing work? Is it better protection the more people we are helping? The closer we are to someone? The more honorable our cause? Is it a one-size fits all?
>>44886659for some reason I thought the wolves were a bit overpowered in that fight.
>>44886681>Is it better protection the more people we are helping?It is, REQM confirmed when we had a argument about that back then.
>>44886688RE had to make it somewhat challenging
>>44886688I think the alpha was an evo above us at the time?
>>44886688Nah, not really. Lyra waded alone into a pile of second tier and higher monster, if anything they were pretty weak.
>>44886688They were normal wolves, just look at how strong Sheszka was at Tier 2 or 3. We're just used to fighting largely regular giant animals, while this was trained warriors.
>>44886688That comes mostly from skewed perception, for all the bragging about fighting giant monsters, Lyra nearly always fights singular giant monsters in a group. That time she found herself on the other end of that equation, she was lucky she had the Blessing of Protection or walking alone among wolves would have ended really bad for her.
>>44886725That feeling when we have a companion who could easily lead her own pack in terms of strength. We're gonna be coming back to the forest eventually with the rough equivalent of wolf overlord as family.
>>44886688The wolves were a shit ton of tier two and ones. They were only able to hurt us because we literally waded into the middle of them.The alpha was tier four, which was higher than us at the time, plus we were tired from raising the wall and mildly injured from the above wolves.
>>44886699>>44886709>>44886710>>44886725Something still doesn't add up to me. Maybe I just read it wrong, but I think the wolves were able to break our chitin more easily than they should have been. Especially with the Blessing of Protection and everything. Maybe its because the blessing wasn't active because Lyra was actively striding through her enemies? but historically Ruby widows would do the same. hmm
>>44886810>but I think the wolves were able to break our chitin more easily than they should have beenNot at all, wolfs just have a really strong bite.People in this quest are bit coddled by our good dice which leads to a inflated sense of how powerful and resilient Lyra really is.
>>44886810oh well, BACK TO THE STORY!!!
>>44886810>but I think the wolves were able to break our chitin more easily than they should have beenWe have nothing to compare to since Lyra hasn't really been hit by anything strong before. her chitin is like armor, those wolves got bites that could easily tear through most armor, it adds up pretty well.>Maybe its because the blessing wasn't active because Lyra was actively striding through her enemies?REQM confirmed the Blessing was active and without it we would have gotten fucked up REALLY bad.
Guys guys guys I need help how would shibari bondage work with a spider butt?
>>44886876Look up everyday life with monster girls, or whatever the fuck its called in moonspeak. Rachnera has you covered, I think.
>>44886876That depends on where you think the sensitive parts of the spiderbutt are, thats where the knots/crosses need to be. Probably at the spinnerete if nothing else, then having a broad binding over the butt itself, bing the legs so they are forced to spread out and go backwards to add a feeling of vulnerability to the humanoid body
>>44886908Did she get tied up? I can't work out how to do the bottom half of it with spider body getting in the way
>>44886929Lead the rope around the first two legs and then over the spider body close to the human back, like how Lyras underwear does it.
>>44886929i think she might have tied her self up. Or one of the others did it to her because they got fed up with her shit. Best Character
>>44887006That ain't NSFW.
>>44886810it was really just Lyra overestimating her own strength due to a (not completly unjustified) sense of invincibility out of never having been really hurt before.
>>44887031Honestly I have no clue what weird-ass standards make smething NSFW or not, I just assumed it counts to be on the safe side.
>>44886949I thought Lyra's undies were all heavy loincloths or string bikini bottoms.
>>44887072You mean like this?
>>44887052To be fair, it's tough to judge your strength when you're under a year old and keep keeping absurd boosts in power.
>>44887072Lyra's undies are all definitely NSFW
>>44887084Yeah, but without the disgusting leg-pedipalps.
>>44887089I love Elle
>>44887094...Oh get over it already.
>>44887072lyra's undies are elle-made lace numbers
Somtimes i wonder what the conversation is like while the gods are watching spiderbutt. like "Welp she just ripped off the bears jaw. Going to do your thing War?" "(Unhappily)I can't shes in HIS dungeon" "Heh, Wheasles."
>>44887118If I remember right ol' H&G has no god governing it.
So I have a question, it was said that the spider got basically told fate to fuck off and escaped the web, and that means spiders are the only ones not bound by fate.Does that mean only spiders have free will? If everyone else is bound by fate or destiny do their actions or choices matter if they had a fate ordained purpose?
>>44887118Are you kidding? There's gotta be a dozen of them watching, betting and shoveling divine popcorn. >>44887084I chose to believe that monster-human transitions are a little taboo, and need to be covered, rather than ponder why there would be genitals in that location.
>>44887118>"Welp she just ripped off the bears jaw. Going to do your thing War?" "(Unhappily)I can't shes in HIS dungeon" "Heh, Wheasles."This isn't a god specific dungeon. Those are pretty rare.
"I don't understand."You roll your eyes for what feels like the seventeenth time in... far less minutes."It is simple, yes.""Then explain it. Properly."Sheszka is helping you lug the jumbo bear up the side of the cliff/cave. Sheszka doesn't complain, or ask for explanations. You sigh."We'll take it through the portal. And then we will eat it, while enjoying new scenery.""And monsters.""I... don't think monsters attack near the gates? They are supposed to be safe zones?""Hmph. What if it isn't new scenery?""Eh?""What if it's more wheat? Yes.""Then I will eat my bear angrily, and go kill more things."Nin falls silent, fluttering upwards as you climb, standing daintily at the edge of the cliff as the wolf hauls however many tons of bear and flora towards the gate."What were you doing before?""Before?""When you charged the bear.""Ah. Just something stupid, yes.""You shouldn't do stupid things. It's... Queens shouldn't do stupid things."You move to refute her, and catch sight of her eyes, staring intently at you beneath a screen of her hair. You settle for mussing it instead, your hand easily shaking her back and forth. "I will not do it again, yes?""Mm."You step into the shimmering void once more.___________________________________________________________________________This is much better. Also, you were vaguely afraid that the bear would disappear.You don't want to throw a tantrum in front of your friends, but some situations ould just call for it, right?The wheat forest has been replaced with...Well, its still technically fields of wheat?
>>44887158>Does that mean only spiders have free will?I dunno, do humans have free will? We're bound by the deterministic nature of the universe.
>>44887094I like 'em
>>44887192The difference being that it's fields of wheat shimmering on floating islands over a sea of gold, a false sun setting on the horizon, half the sky overhead cloaked in strange stars. Rivers run, endless, streaming away into mist over the sea.You can see the next gate, each island linked by a rope bridge, some so long that they're supported by another, tiny island.This is much better. It's beautiful enough that you've forgotten to start eating your catch-No, wait, you've already got bear in your mouth. When did that happen?>Chat with someone. As you eat of course.>This is probably a good place to set up camp, right? At a gate. >How deep does this go, anyway?>Other (?)
>>44887218>This is probably a good place to set up camp, right? At a gate. >How deep does this go, anyway?
>>44887218>>Chat with someone. As you eat of course.>>This is probably a good place to set up camp, right? At a gate.
>>44887218>Chat with someone. As you eat of course.Jin, we haven't heard Jin for so long
>>44887218>Chat with someone. As you eat of course.>This is probably a good place to set up camp, right? At a gate.
>>44887218>>Chat with someone. As you eat of course.>>How deep does this go, anyway?
So I guess the bear did have meat in it?
>>44887218>Chat with someone. As you eat of course.>This is probably a good place to set up camp, right? At a gate. >How deep does this go, anyway?Shez
>>44887218>Chat with someone. As you eat of course.Will rope bridges need spider reinforcement? Lyra's big.>How deep does this go, anyway?
>>44887218>Chat with someone. As you eat of course>How deep does this go, anyway?Why would we set up camp? We barely started.
>>44887218>>Chat with someone. As you eat of course.>>This is probably a good place to set up camp, right? At a gate. >>How deep does this go, anyway?
>>44887218>This is probably a good place to set up camp, right? At a gate. >Other-FIX OUR SPEAR
>>44887094...actually I like the legdipalps....I've got the same kind of fetish as Darling does....there's nothing hotter then watching a beautiful woman crossing her legs while giving a knowing smirk.
>>44887218>How deep does this go, anyway?
>>44887158>So I have a question, it was said that the spider got basically told fate to fuck off and escaped the web, and that means spiders are the only ones not bound by fate.Thats not how I read it, the fate goddess pretty much told us that "getting free from fate" was just a erronous assumption based on the spiders flawed understanding of how fate works. She told us fate is not a web, its a ocean. You can't break out of water.The spider, and the arachne, just struggle to free themselves from fate, they likely just mess with prophecies because those aren't really a thing to begin with and spiders, by nature, "disturb the waters" so to speak.
>>44887218>This is probably a good place to set up camp, right? At a gate.
Camping and chatter, then? Writing
I wonder how long it will take for us to discover our last two new powers.I mean they should manifest anytime now.
>>44887639The ????? s in the pastebin?one of them is Crown of Fire.
>>44887639I think one of them has something to do with our metal melting ability.
>>44887655I think the other one might be Forge something. but i'm not sure.
>>44887655>one of them is Crown of FireNope, Crown of Fire is a integral feature of Armoured Chitin.>>44887667They're confirmed to all be Tyrant powers.
>>44887639>Pastebin>????? ?? ????Power to ruleWe cracked the code, boys.
>>44887667Forge Blessing enhancing our metalcontrol is the only thing we got from it, the three (now 2) ???? are tyrant evolution related, so I doubt that at least.
>>44887732Right to Rule?
>>44887732Alternatively>Voice of gold
>>44887732I think Something of Fear is more likely.
>>44887745Aura doesn't have enough words and I thought that the Crown and Armour were the tyrant ability's?
>>44887748Actually, shit, you're probably more right than I was.
>>44887748I think Power to Rule sounds more like Tyrant than Right. Especially since there was Sovereign where Right to Rule would be fitting.
>>44887751....hmm well I don't think Lyra's tried singing yet...
>>44887789fitting,so maybe.Doesn't really roll off the tongue though.
As I think we have kind of figured out the second whats the first????? ????????????? The second word has thirteen letters anyone know what it could be?
>>4488783413 letters could be a typo, if it's 12 it could be Overwhelming.
TFW you're still salty we didn't get Tyrant.
>>44887881...But we did.
>>44887863Power Overwhelming?Bu that'd be more a Deino thing.>>44887881Uh anon, we DID get Tyrant.
>>44887881>we didn't get Tyrant.What?
>>44887834Queen/Tyrant/Ruler Niallasdottir>>44887881Uh, we did.
>>44887881We did get tyrant though
>>44887881We did you bloody idiot.
>>44887881yes we did. I was not aware of this quest at the time but I wanted to be Volcano spider first second forge spider then tyrant spider.>>44887893 Being her daughter isn't an ability.... Is it?
>>44887881>>44887888>>44887890>>44887892>>44887893>>44887898>>44887905Fuck. I blame the hiatus.
>>44887881http://pastebin.com/F5RxgbPX>Hearthbound Tyrant ArachneLearn to read brah.Also Lyra's pastebin has over 10,000 hits. Holy shit.
>>44887881Where's one of those bait pictures when you need it.
>>44887881Tell us TFW you realize that you've been salty for this long over something that doesn't exist.
>>44887928>Being her daughter isn't an ability.... Is it?Well, we are less than a year old, and tier 4, with all of our siblings that actually travel aren't far behind.Then again, it took her thirty years to get to tier 3.
>>44887834http://www.becomeawordgameexpert.com/wordlists13.htmThere's nearly 14,000 of them.Good luck.
>>44887928>second forge spiderI never get where that comes from, we barely ever even do any forging.
>>44887928>>44887966No idea, but 'Niallasdottir' fits.Pure speculation, but then so's everything else.
You friends busy themselves with erecting tents, and you busy yourself with making the meal more palatable. Not that there's amything wrong with raw bear, but a good seared steak goes a long way. In short order, there's a few questionably stable tents around, and a small pile of contentedly chewing monsters. Even Nin seems to enjoy the bear's plant life, and claims that there's more flavour to it. Which is patently false, in your opinion, but you keep that one quiet. Dinner isn't much without a conversation, but between your own instincts and the natural monster reaction of shoveling food into your maws, you're hard pressed to get any. So you poke and prod and gradually get people to talk. "So, yes."Your answer is the crackle of a neatly kept fire and the synchronised chomping of hungry girls. You cough."What does everyone think, yes? Of the dungeon."Sheszka shrugs. Nin is ambivalent, as far as you can tell.Ezzy expresses a particular dislike of weasels.And Jin actually stops eating."The stars are wrong.""Wrong?"You twist to look upwards, watching the twinkling lights far overhead."All wrong. Wrong places, Feels wrong.""Feels?""Like..."She struggles for a minute, gesturing with her wings."Like they aren't stars. Something else, yes."You watch overhead a little longer."Is it because we're somewhere else? Where is the dungeon, yes?"Sheszka pipes up, chiming in behind the harpy. "Smells wrong, too.""The stars? How can you smell-""No. Everything. Dirt and plants and monsters.""Monsters too?"She looks ashamed."Sometimes I can't smell them till I can see them."Maybe they're actually just spawned all around you? What are the specifics of multi-dimensional structures, anyway?
>>44887974I honestly can't take the opinion of someone xerious for who the giant apex predytor hunting evolution isn't in the top three for Lyra. Thats just random as fuck.
>>44887974Well we can kind of metalbend so...
>>44887991You reassure a mildly distraught yeti, which is more challenging than that statement implies, given her propensity for changing size. Night doesn't actually fall, despite the setting sun- You're beggining to become certain that it's simply there to colour the water.So you settle for closing a dome of earth over your heads, the cool air wafting off of your wolf more than enough to lull you all to sleep. A few decent fights and a good meal are really all it takes.
>>44888006Actually we can only really melt it and then harden it again.Thats not quite the same thing.We do more with our webs than we ever did with metal though.
>>44887834>????? ?????????????Spider Imperiousness, maybe?
>>44888001didn't appeal to me as much as the others.
>>44888046Spider's too long. Imperiousness is probable.
>>44888047As I said, opinion disregarded.There is literally no way to justify the hunting evolution not being at least among the most fitting for Lyra. Especially not after stuff like forging and fire which have only barely periphery relevance to her.
>>44888047Thats some seriously terrible taste you got there but luckily none of those won so it doesn't matter.
>>44888041Did we fix our spear?
>>44888090I'm not even sure why we bother, Lyra has taken to kill everything with her bare hands by npw, since her spear has become virtually useless.
>>44888010That's it for tonight, all.Next thread won't be until next week- I've got overtime until the weekend, and I won't be in any state to run after that. I'll be around to answer and questions as per usual.>>44888090Mid-fight!
>>44888085Tyrant did. And to be honest it's my fourth choice, because I prefer elemental fury to just being a fuck huge spider that eats everything.

>>44888283>You've already triggered one without realizing it!Why didn't it get added then?Huh. well it seems extremly likely it was our intimidation of the priest back then at any case. So a Power of Fear or similar.
>>44888311>Why didn't it get added then?I imagine Lyra needs to be consciously aware of them. Could get hard if it really is a fear/rulership voice.
>>44888311>Huh. well it seems extremly likely it was our intimidation of the priest back then at any case. So a Power of Fear or similar.>Intimidation: Rank 5No longer unranked!
