Your name is Amy Nakamura, a 17 year old Void Oni, and you just walked into what looks like a fight (more of a struggle really) between 4 faeries from Titania’s Silence and a kid. A really nerdy looking kid too, the hell he’s doing here? Questions for later. After using your power to reveal the faeries to you, they all turned around simultaneously in your direction. Creepy “A witch?” One asks the others, some sounds of disagreement comes from the group. The kid with the chain jumps, he probably hadn’t heard any of them speak. “No, it feels more…. Monstrous.” Says another, as the third one lifts its head and inhales deeply. “Female” it says, their voices are all identical, they all have the same musical quality to them. The shadows in the tree line seem to lengthen and dance as they ponder this information. The leader, at least you assume she’s the leader, looks directly at you. Her black orbs for eyes incredibly unsettling in the eerie gloom. “There’s no point in concealing yourself, monster” She says, her voice clearer and more strident than the others “Come out now and we won’t be forced to hurt you.” A lie if you ever heard one, at the mention of monsters the boy goes even paler. >Walk out >Stay where you are >Write-in?

>>45177516>Walk outIs there some kind of insulting thing we can call them? Like calling them pixies when they're fairies, like how calling a Korean ganger Japanese will get them up in your face?

>>45177516>Walk out>"Explain to me what the hell is going on here, and I just might not be forced to hurt YOU."I have no idea what this is, but I'm already waiting for the inevitable fight against a perfectly normal dude armed with a sackful of beans.
Rolled 3, 3, 1 = 7 (3d10)>>45177516>>Walk outJust walk out, no insulting anyone, we don't know why the situation looks the way it does.
>>45177687Why would we save the nerdy kid? We don't even know why they're all here and if it's the kid's own fault or not.
>>45177834On my part, I assumed we're intervening so we can find out what's going on and decide who actually needs saving.
>>45177516>this style of writingAt this point I'm 90% sure you're the OP from Oversized Weapons Quest.
>>45177911I'm actually not, this is my first quest. Is the writing bad?
>>45177887Sounds about right, and maybe just observing/ignoring if the one doing something is justified.
You walk out of your cover and into what little light there is in the small clearing, you’re still in your gym clothes from jogging, and the cool air is starting to be a bit uncomfortable. The boy’s eyes widen a bit as he sees you, you bet he was expecting someone more… well, someone who looks like a monster. Certainly not an incredibly tall and well-muscled Asian girl. “An Ogress?” One asks “No, no Ogre magic would be powerful enough to dispel our glamour.” Replies another Faerie. “Maybe she’s troll blooded?” Says the third, some murmurs of agreement come from the other two. “What do you want, monster?” Asks the leader, you’re really tired of them calling you that. The boy at this point is trying, unsuccessfully, to creep back silently. His knuckles are extremely white from holding the black chain he was using to fend them off. Black chain… IRON! Of course, he was using iron to fend them off. >What’s going on here? >What are faeries attacking a kid for? >Write-in?
>>45178011>What’s going on here? No assumptions. For all we know, the fairies could be justified in attacking the boy.>>45177941Relax, you're fine. There's been no real problems as far as I can tell.If you keep fretting about the quality of your writing, someone's inevitably going to waifu you, and then we'll have problems.
>>45178011>What are faeries attacking a kid for?
>>45178071W-waifu!?! A-anonkun, it's too soon to be taling about marriage.

>>45178190>>skilltree ideasIf I had more free time I'd try and make some pastebins for you guys, stats and bios and maybe some skills and XP. But life is busy right now.
“What’s going on here?” You ask the faerie gang members. Why would 4 faeries from such a prolific gang attack, what looks like, a normal nerdy guy? It doesn’t really add up, unless you’re missing something. “We’re trying to reclaim what is ours, the specifics shouldn’t matter to you.” The leader tells you in a voice that you’d reserve for children or the mentally ill. She’s really starting to piss you off, your hands are starting clench and un-clench on their own. Maybe you didn’t burn off as much adrenaline as you thought? Or maybe you just want to punch her in her smug mouth, yeah that’s probably it. “Apologies if this is your territory, troll-blood.” One of the mook faeries says “We’ll be out of your hair as soon as we deal with the human.” Great, they’ve already assumed you’re a troll, fucking racist faeries. They still haven’t explained what they’ll do to the guy, and they’ve already started moving to surround you. >What do you say to the Faeries?
>>45177941'Course not. OWQ was awesome.
>>45178442>Ask them what it is the boy has taken from them.>Ask the boy what his side of the story is.>and they’ve already started moving to surround youShould that have been 'surround him', or are they actually surrounding us?
>>45178442>"Well, if it is my territory, then maybe you should explain yourselves better if you don't want a punch to the face?">"And, i'm not a troll"
>>45178442>Doesn't quite look like he wants to go with you though. And it's Oni you racist mother fuckers.
>>45178489No they've stopped surrounding the boy and have been creeping in a slight oval shape to surround you. They've got magic up to prevent the boy from escaping. They've partially claimed part of this forest as a Fae domain, which is pissing the local spirits off quite a bit.
>>45178442>"I'm not just gonna stand by and let you mug some kid if the best explanation you have is "the specifics shouldn't matter" so, do you wanna try that again?"
>>45178545Please don't put hidden meta spoilers without a warning at least. Preferably no spoilers at all since it leads to meta voting.
>>45178442>"What do you low-lifes think you're doing? This human's on my turf. That makes him my property and I don't treat thieves kindly."
>>45178573There's not a whole you can do to meta that information, but thanks. I won't do it again without a warning.
>>45178489It was stated before that the faeries were already making preparations to attack us as soon as they detected we entered the field they set up to prevent the kid from escaping.
Alrighty it looks like we're demanding that they tell us what's up. Maybe asking the boy? Writing
>>45178573The only meta thing about the spoiler was the dominion thing; everything else was already noted in-character at the end of the last thread and the beginning of this one.
“Nah, the ‘Specifics don’t matter’ isn’t going to cut it Tinkerbell.” You tell the faerie one of the other faeries stifles a laugh as the leader glares at him (her?). “You’re going to tell me exactly why you want that kid, and you’re going to tell me now, otherwise we’re going to have a disagreement. With our fists.” “We know you meant a fight.” Says the trying not to laugh faerie. “Shut up.” You growl back to him. The Head faerie at this point is pinching the base of her nose. “Alright you want to die so badly? We’ll oblige you, fucking troll.” She states, the exasperation of her predicament clear in her voice. At this point both the kid and the chuckling faerie are trying hard not to laugh. “I’m not a fucking Troll, racist.” You yell back at her, she doesn’t even respond, she just runs at you with a black glove covered hand raised at you. 3d10 for fighting please, the base DC is 6 and there’s a secret hidden DC as well

Rolled 4 (1d10)>>45178907We're gonna punch every one of them that laughed at us, including the kid.
The head faerie lunges at you with a speed no human could match, good thing you’re not human. You side-step her in an attempt to dodge, but after you move she quickly kicks you in the gut. You try to retaliate but she’s already danced away. Fuck, she’s actually good. Two other faeries moving in unison try a similar trick, but you’re ready for it this time. You take one of the mook’s punches head on, wile the other one kicks at your shin. Tanking both hits you wrap the first faerie up with your arms and put him in a sleeper hold. He struggles for a bit as the other faerie dances out of your range. The captured faerie passes out fairly quickly and you drop him to the ground. The blows that they landed on you are barely more than an annoyance, your skin is supernaturally tough and you can regenerate from most things fairly quickly. Where’d the fourth faerie go? Roll me 3d10, DC is seven this time

>>45179180>>45179207Hey hey it's alright, the fight is far from over.
>>45179257Wait, what exactly is the rolling mechanic here? Do all of the dice have to pass the DC or something?
>>45179269think it's you need 2 dice to reach the dc to pass and 3 gives you a crit but if you only have one dice pass you fail and if all 3 fail then it's a crit fail... or that could be someone else dice but I think it's the same
>>45179298You got it right, it's also best of three
You get a tingling in the back of your mind, but it comes too late, the fourth faerie rushes you from behind and stabs something into your back. You reach around to punch him but he’s already back-flipped away, show off. The pain in your back is tolerable and the wound isn’t deep, but getting stabbed fucking HURTS. The worst part is you’re going to have to explain why you’ve got blood on your clothes to your mom, that’s going to suuuuuck. You rip the knife(?) out of your back and quickly look at it, it’s made of what looks like some sort of black glass. You tense up the muscles in your back to stop the bleeding, and you start to feel the wound knit itself back together. If you had been human that would most likely have nicked your kidney, it’s a good thing an Oni’s skin and muscles are thick. You were right, this is FUN. You smile at the three remaining faeries who have grouped back up. You twirl the glass in your hands and hold it in a reverse grip. They probably shouldn’t have given you a weapon. >Keep fighting them like this >Nah, fuck them, drop your human disguise >Diplomance >Write-in?
>>45179376>Keep fighting them like thisCan we try to intimidate? Something along the line of "I am wondering if faries act like flies when you pull their wings off"
>>45179376>Keep fighting them like thisAll that matters is that it's FUN!See if we can't hold a conversation with the kid to get his side of the story while we're doing our mad flips and shit.>>45179298>>45179348That makes sense. I was wondering where that anon pulled the 30% figure from.
>>45179376>Keep fighting them like thisit's not disparate enough for us to change yet.
>>45179376>>Keep fighting them like thisOh, poor little darlings. They'll learn.
>>45179376>Keep fighting them like thisWe haven't lost yet
>>45179407>Can we try to intimidate?There is a certain Oni power like this, you don't have it yet I'm afraid.
Can we learn a bit more about the ins and outs of what an oni actually is in this setting and what that means to us?
>>45179489Most of that will be revealed with time, I will however tell you what Amy learned from grandfather. An Oni is the Japanese take on an Ogre, a large brutish humanoid. However Oni are rarer, at least in the west and have an elemental aspect that they're born with. Yours is metal, which means that Oni magic come somewhat instinctive to you as does weapon fighting. All Oni are incredibly strong and resilient, they can regenerate from most wounds and can accelerate that healing by drinking alcohol(typically sake however anything will work). Oni were created to be servants, and they can pledge themselves to a person worthy enough to be their lord, or they can be forcibly "chained" into service.
>>45179581>chained into serviceSo, marriage then?
>>45179581So either we have no weaknesses, or our parents failed to educate us on our shortcomings.
Alright looks like we're fighting them like this, roll me 3d10, DC 6 bonus hidden DC as well.

Rolled 5, 5, 6 = 16 (3d10)>>45179657

>>45179650Oh I forgot, as a Void/metal Oni if fire touches your naked skin it can give some incredibly nast burns, basically it skips 1st and 2nd and goes straight to 3rd. Wounds from fire also take an incredibly long tme to heal as well.
>>45179691Ah, so we shouldn't try invading Muspellheim any time soon then?
>>45179691and they think we're a troll, which are normally weak to fire... craaaap
>>45179691We'll have to buddy up a Yuki-onna then.
>>45179691So your saying MC is fucked if they are against the small plethora of fire based mythology.

>>45179742You guys picked metal/void not me. >>45179739You're in Houston, the coldest it gets is maybe 32 degrees F
>>45179746Oh! so THAT's how you meant hidden DC!
>>45179691Are all our clothing made of Nomex or some other fire resistant material?Come to think of it, how did we even learn to cook without dying?
>>45179792Fire, not heat.
>>45179792Carefully Amy kinda digs the thrill it gives her
>>45179742Pretty much all of starting options had some hefty weaknesses; all of them one step from "Garlick actually works, and is super-effective" tier of problems.
>>45179814Are there really hardcore oni who eat roasted soybeans and become firefighters and shit?
>>45179769Dont look at me, i joined later.Just means we should probably get an anti fire charm at some point if we can.
>>45179792How many times you set yourself on fire while cooking?
>>45179830To be fair, Oni are pretty bullshit >>45179843Not all Oni are weak to fire, just Metal aspected ones. and yes
>>45179874about 3 times this week. why is that not normal?
>>45179909Normal people use pepper for burning sensations, anon.
>>45179874It's not a question of actually setting yourself on fire; it's a question of accidentally coming into contact with the flame, for even a second, when you're still inexperienced and learning.What this tells us is that our parents either don't care much about us, are terribly irresponsible, or terribly drunk.
>>45179977But if that's your fetish I am not judging.
>>45179988It's more like Amy is incredibly stubborn and basically forced her mom and grandma to teach her. She did quite a few burns but they all healed eventually, and now she's a pretty damn good cook.
>>45179988>implying one would have to risk coming into contact with flames to cook
>>45180039A lot of cooking involves open flames, not all of it but quite a bit.
>>45179977No, anon, you use pepper for burning sensations.Are you a normal person?Besides, pepper only works when ingested, inhales or applied to the eyes. Naked flames are far more flexible.
These guys may be faeries, but they’re still no match for you, even in human form. Still grinning you beckon the fae forward with your free hand. Boss faerie takes offense to that, and rushes you down with her two flunkies. Excellent One flunky advances quickly, breaking off from the group. It’s the fucker who stabbed you, he pulls out another knife and starts swinging it at you. With basically no time before the others get here, you let him cut you across your abs, as he tries to pull back you grab his arm and stab your knife through his shoulder. As he takes a moment to contemplate his pain, you kick him in the chest and send him sprawling. Grabbing his other knife out of the air, you use it to defend yourself from the other faerie’s attacks. These two don’t seem to have any weapons, except for the boss’s strange leather gloves. After seeing their partner go down the faeries increase the velocity of their attacks, many of their punches get through and make it to where you can’t return with an equal amount of force. However this has turned into a brawl and the fae, while incredibly fast and nimble, don’t have the same stamina you do. Boss faerie realizes this and drops back while her flunky keeps fighting you. Out of the corner of your eye you see her go after the boy, who’s desperately fending her off with the chain. You don’t know how long he has. >Drop the faerie fighting you and go help the boy >Drop the faerie fighting you and run >Write-in?

That's interesting. Everyone rolled >= avg. collective score.
Shit, shit, shit. How’re you going to get to the kid in time to help him with this guy still in your way? Oh, that’s fucking GENIUS! You step into the faeries next swing, taking a hit to the jaw, the cut in your mouth from earlier re-opening a bit. You throw your arms around the mook and start to squeeze, he’s squirming way too much. You fix that by pummeling the writing fae with body blows, that stops him. Re-positioning him from under your arms, you lift him by the fancy leather jacket and THROW him at his boss. The faerie projectile moves with astonishing speed as it collides with the boss’s back throwing her into the kid. Whoops You run over to where the pile of bodies is laying, and groaning. You heft the mook faerie out of the pile freeing the kid. He looks up at you, breathing heavy. “T-thanks, if you hadn’t shown up, I dunno what would’ve happened to me.” “Ain’t a big deal kid, I just came over here to see what was making those weird noises.” You say shrugging off his thanks. Still he keeps that look of admiration his face as he shakily gets up. “What the hell did you take from them anyway?” You ask him, he looks around a bit and moves in to whisper to you. “Well, it’s not a thing per-say, it’s-.” You quickly cut him off by covering his mouth with your hand. “Where’s the boss?” You ask as you look around, the head faerie seemingly vanished.

>>45181044I dunno she's Asian, maybe she cooks with a wok from time to time?
>>45181149She cooked fried rice in a fucking frying pan, so I'd say all signs point to that not being the case.
>>45181149Not if she's making Japanese dishes. Though since she made fried rice, she probably did use a wok. >>45181044Plenty of homes in the US use natural gas stoves and burners. Maybe you're thinking of coal? Coal stoves for cooking are no longer common.
>>45181149As a matter of fact, her parents have two stoves, one's traditional and the other is a propane stove. That's the one she used to cook the fried rice over in the first thread. >>45181115*I'mugh
>>451811493rd generation, and the description of breakfast last thread sounded pretty Western. It's probably enough to cook on an electric stove, open flames might be an occasional thrill but that's a huge risk to add on a daily basis.

>>45181269Then maybe it's the region. I've seen plenty in Pennsylvania and New York City.There was even an explosion at a restaurant and the apartments above it a few years back when the building manager added one too many illegal feeds from the gas main to fuel his tenants' gas stoves.
The tingling in your head comes back, much stronger this time. You push the kid out of the way as the head faerie leaps at you, black chain in hand. How the fuck is she even holding it? THE GLOVES! Her black gloves must let her handle iron, all of this rushes through your mind as you try to fend her off with the knife. You’re doing a decent job to, before she throws something at your face. Ugh, tastes like magic. You’re only blinded for second before the void dissipates the magic, but those few seconds are all the supernaturally quick faerie needs. She rushes behind you moving as sinuously as a serpent and leaps onto your back. The black chain in her hand wraps itself around your throat, she’s trying to fucking strangle you! You gasp as it tightens around your neck, but if that pixie bitch thinks that’s all it will take to put you down she’s wrong. Dead wrong You slam your elbows into her back, over and over again. But she refuses to let go. Growling, you grab her arms and forcibly twist her around to your front. You punch her in the diaphragm once, before leaping with all your might. You get the lowest tree branches before gravity calls you back down, you position the fae under you as you crash back to the earth, your landing actually managed to make a small impression in the ground. The boss fae is down, however the chain is still somehow choking you out without her holding it. You’re running out of air and you can’t reach around properly to remove it. >Identify the magic through the void >Go into true Oni form and force it off>Struggle some more in human form, surely you can get it off >Ask the Kid to help you get it off. >Write-in?
>>45181436I thought about it and it probably more related to the age of the building than a specific region.

Okay, breathe-well maybe not breathe considering you’re being strangled by a magic chain-and focus. You clear all the thoughts from your head, and all the emotions you’ve been feeling. Elation, anger and joy all disappear as you peer through the void. The magic on the chain is definitely fae, but not. Faerie magic usually can’t affect iron, so how could she… Ah, there it is, witch magic. Those gloves that let her touch iron were made by a witch, they must also let faeries work magic into iron. The enchantment on the chains is a very simple one, all it does is squeeze what it’s attached you. The problem is in your state of running out of oxygen, and being in human form. Another problem is the sheer amount of magic that fae poured into the chain, you could maybe break it in Oni form, or you could get the kid to help you take it off. >Go into Oni form and try to overpower the magic >Get the kid to help >Write-in?
>>45182327>>Get the kid to help
>>45182327>The enchantment on the chains is a very simple one, all it does is squeeze what it’s attached you.This means the chain itself is only as strong as it normally is.Are we strong enough in human form to break links in an iron chain?
>>45182327>>Go into Oni form and try to overpower the magicwhy not?
>>45182327>Go into Oni form and try to overpower the magic The kid already knows we aint a normal human, its not a loss to transform.
>>45182327>Get the kid to help
>>45182417But wouldn't hulking out fuck up our gym clothes?
>>45182327>Go into Oni form and try to overpower the magicHumans can' break chains, the time for henshin is now.
>>45182392No, she poured a lot of magic into it, you can only break it in Oni form. >>45182402Because you being an Oni isn't common knowledge.
>>45182327>Go into Oni form and try to overpower the magic
>>45182454Pretty sure japanese oni magic should solve such problems
>>45182473Eh, we just saved this kids ass, we can at least ask him to keep his mouth shut.The fey shouldn't bother, since they have their identity to lose as well, at least, if they care about it. And if folks already know? pretty much guaranteed that no one trusts anything they say anyway.
>>45182473Fair enough. I had assumed that, if the magic only specifically controlled the chain's motion, the durability would be unaffected. Voting instead for:>Get the kid to help
>>45182454Welp, that nerd's day is about to get so much better.
>Go into Oni form and try to overpower the magic
>>45182643>starts off being attacked by murderous twinks>ends up getting an eyeful of a demon ogre musclegirl
Vote closed, counting
>>45182503Fuck that noise We are a proud Oni Woman and have nothing to be ashamed about our True (I'm assuming) form>>45182643Oni's are rather... Horny.
It would have been a tie but >>45182646Wasn't linked properly. Do you guys just want me to revote? Or Just write kid helping.
>>45182760Just move forward.
>>45182760Rather not waste time.
>>45182760Don't get hung up on votes not linked properly. A vote is still a vote. Go ahead.
>>45182760Just have the kid help. If the other guy didn't vote properly, that means it doesn't count. I voted for Hot Oni action by the way
>>45182773>>45182787>>45182797Alrighty, writing the kid helping You guys enjoying this?
>>45182802Can always have hot oni action later.
>>45182816Still waiting for more in-depth knowledge and fluff, but so far so good.
>>45182816Its going well.
>>45182816You're doing fine OP, really enjoying it so far.Maybe do a few more grammar checks before sending a post off, but other than that, you're good.
>>45182816i'm still here aren't I
>>45182760You shouldn't ounish just because it wasn't propperly linked... I'd say revote or roll a d2.
Okay so you’ve got two options, you can try and brute force the chain off in Oni form, or you can get the person who can actually reach the chain to help out. You’re gonna go with the option that doesn’t reveal your true nature to a complete stranger. “K-kid!” You manage to wheeze out, the boy (who’s actually about your age) looks over at you struggling with the chain. “Can’t *wheeze* reach.” You say motioning to the back of the chain. The guy gets what you’re trying to say immediately and runs over to help you. Luckily you’re on the ground so you don’t have to stoop for him to reach, damn he’s short. You hear him fiddling with chain for a bit, swearing and grunting as he tries to pry it off, and finally you can breathe again. Sweet sweet air. You collapse onto the ground just filling up your lungs with as much O2 as you can. You lay there like that for a minute before you realize the boy is still watching you. Despite your entire body telling you that getting up is a bad idea, you get up and look down at the boy. He’s smiling faintly and breathing heavily, it must’ve taken a lot out him to get the chain off. “Amy, Amy Nakamura,” You say extending your hand to him “thanks for getting that damn chain off.” The teen smiles and shakes your hand. (Cont.)
>>45183332“I’m Daniel Butler, but you can call me Dan if you want.” He says, smile fading a bit. “You shouldn’t thank me though, I only got the chain to stop choking you. It’s still on you.” He finishes, looking disappointed at himself. You put your hand to your throat and feel that the kid’s right, the chain stopped choking you but it’s still wrapped around your neck. How on earth could an un-tied chain still be wrapped around your neck? You use the void to check and see if there’s any residual magic on it, only to find that the chain is resonating with your body. And Dan’s… No, no no Fucking NO, NO! >Explain, calmly what just happened >Look gather up the faeries, say nothing >RAGE!
>>45183354>Explain, calmly what just happened
>>45183354>>Explain, calmly what just happenedand when that fails>RAGE!
>>45183354>Explain, calmly what just happenedKid, I hope for both our sakes that you're not an asshole.
>>45183354Did we just get bound to him?We did not just get fucking bound to him!
>>45183354>Explain, calmly what just happenedDid we just get our death-color attuned to a nerd?
>>45183354Fucking railroad.We would have been bound to that faggot no matter what.
>>45183472oh no, plot happened in a questwhatever shall we do>also nigger we could have just run from the fight
>>45183354Thought it was going to be a good quest, Then you bound us against our will to the first shmuck we find ,Dropped.
>>45183354Did you just bind us to your self insert?Fucking really m8?
>>45183354>Explain, calmly what just happenedI don't get the cries of railroading, if we went Oni form we probably could have avoided this.
>>45183354>Attempt calm explanation. Fail.
>>45183537>>45183516>>45183472Jesus, this shit happens whatever move on. If you don't like it FUCK OFF.
>>45183562The only problem i see in it is that it was a tie and the QM went for the option that would get us bound.
>>45183354No rolls for save or anything?If we don't get to kill him or get free in this thread, I'm dropping this shit.
>>45183354>RAGE!>>45183562I wish we had had an adequate explanation of the supernatural metaphysics before they came up, but it seemed like chaining was supposed to be metaphorical instead of literal.
Honestly, i say we kill himFuck being anybody's slave everEven if he never uses it that way we are essentially and will remain a slave as long as this goes on
>>45183583OP literally asked us whether we wanted to revote, and the following three posts all said to move on, so I don't see any fault there.
>>45183583That was because one of the votes for going Oni wasn't linked properly. So it wasn't really a draw. And there's probably going to be a way out of it, because Plot. >>45183643Agreed.
>>45183643Because we thought it was going to be Oni form. QM railroaded us into slavery.
>>45183630Do we even know that's what it does? How do we know it isn't just bound to his life force so it starts choking us if he dies?
>>45183630Aside from how bad an idea killing some random kid is, we probably cant just attack our master.Just get him to release us, he's probably super beta.
>>45183643He basically asked if it was ok if we go with the option that gets us bound because an anon didn't do something 100% correct instead of at least rolling for it or something.
If you guys want I can explain how this works a bit, but tit would be meta as Amy doesn't have the full details.
>>45183630Why would you assume we even can kill him? Or act against him in any way for that matter?
We would have been bound if we went into oni form as well.
>>45183696*it would be meta
>>45183696Just explain what Amy would know about whats going on.
>>45183671>Railroaded>investigated screams on our own>had many chances to fleeYep. There was no way to avoid this.
>>45183696Too late for that, asshat. You fucked yourself over.
>>45183696Don't. Just make sure to give us a way out of it if we're so against this. Please don't compromise the quest because a few anons call railroading.
>>45183691Because the consequences of your choices should always be apparent before you make them, right?>>45183671If you read 'This post voting for oni wasn't linked properly, and it would be a tie if I counted it; should we revote or should I move on' as 'We're going Oni form', I'm not sure what to tell you other than to read more carefully.
>>45183696I'll still be mad that we didn't even have what we *would* know in-character before making choices.
>>45183696>>45183722Just confirm whether or not were enslaved to him or not.
>>45183738Hell it's probably just one douche.
>>45183696From the sound of it, a couple players would rather you retcon it into the other option because they can't handle anything bad ever happening to their character or recognize a plot hook
>>45183738I wasn't planning on it, the only thing that's disappointing me are the down votes on the archive...
>>45183752>Because the consequences of your choices should always be apparent before you make them, right?There should always be a hint at the possibility and nature of consequences.
Wow, so now we are in a harem anime as the first girl.
>>45183732He literally picked the other option at a non-tie and enslaved us. >>45183752>Actually caring about linking properlyThe first sign of a shitty newfag QM.
>>45183696don't worry about, just focus on the quest, we'll probably find out about this later.
>>45183696Go ahead and discuss things at the end of the thread, but don't let things bog you down.That said, do try to avoid excluding in-character knowledge (however limited) from story updates, and then punishing players for making decisions blind.
>>45183752>'This post voting for oni wasn't linked properly, and it would be a tie if I counted it; should we revote or should I move on'That isn't a valid thing to do though. I said i wasn't ok with it because it wasn't fair to the ones that voted for turning into oni. Now it's even worse since we got turned into a slave because 3 people said "ok, let's do that QM"
>>45183732If not railroaded, then led by the nose. Sure we could just not follow the obvious plot hook, or ignore the >being an oni is totally secret, guysand decide to hulk out, but given the information we had there was no reason to do either of those things.
>>45183732With no explanation of what could happen if we asked for help.Really, it's the lack of information about ourselves and the QM having been all secretive about it that did us in.
>>45183776Ignore that. This quest is good, don't let fucktards get you down.
>>45183783What does "not linking properly" even mean, did he reply to the wrong post or something?
>>45183780With the benefit of hindsight, reread >>45179581.
>>45183821He didn't link to any post, he just posted one of the choices as a vote, which shouldn't be a problem unless it was after votes has been closed.
>>45183776Just push ahead. This happens in lots of quests
>>45183814It doesn't bother me too much, it's just kind of petty, as other people may look at the votes and say "Gee it must be shit)
we can probably just ask the kid to get the chain off, because we're super tired from the fight.
>>45183836That's a good point, though i don't see the human having an intent of forcing us into service so i don't see that likely as happening
>>45183859Yup, being railroaded does happen alot.
>>45183781Exactly what I was thinking.
>>45183821^ He didn't have that.>>45183836Well look at that OP Spelled it out. Although I do not trust this kid one bit.
>>45183836Aside from not being an adequate explanation in the least of how chaining works, the quotation marks imply that it's metaphorical rather than literal, which is what happened.
>>45183836"Forcibly chained" to me implies someone has to do it to us on purpose, knowing what they're up to. THis just happened to us by accident-- the fae who strangled us didn't even know we were an oni or that we could be chained, and this isn't some Chain of Oni Enslaving, it's a Chain of Constricting or the like.
>>45179581>>45183836Wait, so we shouldn't be "chained" into service then if we haven't found him worthy!He's some little chump that needed saving and we didn't want to freak out with Oni form, not a worthy lord that we've agreed to serve.
>>45183894That better be the case or OP's a gigantic faggot.
>>45183894Welp, I guess we've found out why the fey wanted this nigger dead.Because he's a mage that binds magical beings.
>>45183900The argument would be that he forcibly put us into service, which i don't see how that would be when he even went at it with the intent to free us.
If the guy with the IP changer would stop down voting my archive, that'd be nice.
>>45183900Nonono, we can't pledge to him if we don't find him worthy. He can chain us as long as a chain is around our necks.That last bit is what confused everyone and is the reason we're even having this shitstorm.
>>45183940>Implying IP changer>Implying it's not just an honest and rapidly-decreasing former fanbase
>>45183940>Implying it's only one person who dislikes what you did
>>45183900We can be forcibly chained. And I think the kid might have done it on purpose. He pissed off a Fae gang (don't piss off fairys) and saw us kicking ass. We said we aint a troll, plus we are asian, Kid's a clever bugger probably figured it out.
>>45183940Just move on and post the next bit. Don't let them get you down.
>>45183890>>45183894>>45183900OP basically stated: Amy doesn't have full knowledge of this, but here's something she was told is sort of possible.Why would you assume that her information would be anything near complete or even accurate.
>>45183940For your next quest, take this to heart: If you have to push consequences onto the players for mistakes made or a failed roll, at least make it fun and don't railroad it.
>>45183940Would you kindly continue posting so we can meet our new best friend and love rival, second girl.
>>45183940Jee yeah that's totally it! It's definitely not that people don't like being railroaded into being a slave!
>>45183977Because we have a mother and not explaining this shit to your teenage oni daughter is a stupid plot hole?
>>4518395818 votes, most threads don't get more then 15 and this is still to new to get that many votes.
>>45184009ESPECIALLY when there's a risk to being chained forcibly.
>>45183978>make it funThat's difficult to ddo when everyone instantly complains and down votes at the slightest inconvenience. We haven't even gotten an explanation for what exactly happened yet.
>>45184018There are ten votes on the last one and most people don't vote because it involves effort.
>>45183958>>45183969I highly doubt that their are eight followers of a new quest with a new QM that care this much about an event like this.
>>45184009Your parents aren't Oni, neither is your grandfather. You're full Oni because of your blood, it can travel down the line of descendants. You're the first Oni born to your family in some 150 years. Alright, I'm going to try and count this up and move on. Sorry if people feel like they've been cheated.
>>45184065>Sorry if people feel like they've been cheated.> feel likeExcept we clearly have been railroaded into slavery.
>>45184009I'm not even sure our mother is an oni, since our grandfather had to declare us one-- that's something else I'm unclear on, actually; how the hell did we not know we were an oni from birth? Do we not have horns and red skin, or what? I know oni are shapeshifters, but the human look is not the default, and if we're a full-blooded oni, which I'm pretty sure the QM said we were, presumably the rest of our family are also oni, but that seems not to be the case. Just how does this shit work, exactly?
>>45184065Don't be. People need to stop being whiny little bitches.
>>45184065It's literally not even that big of a deal. If he chains two other girls and we have to contemplate making him chocolates for valentines, then it becomes a problem.If anything this kind of critical backstory stuff maybe should have been in the intro post or a flashback or something.But like most other things I'd be happy if we can just continue punching out problems away.
>>45184100can you just fuck off already go to a different thread if you're just here to bitch.
>>45184009>Talking to my granddaughter about her oni heritage>Topic of 'chaining' comes up, not to clear on it myself, it's been so long since I've talked to anyone about it>Pretty sure it hasn't been done in centuries>And I think requires some ridiculous circumstances like having a cold iron chain or band wrapped around your neck or something>Well, she doesn't seem too interested in it, and it'll probably never be relevant anyway>Gloss over itI don't see that this is out of the realm of reality.
>>45184104You actually didn't start getting Oni characteristics until right before puberty.
>>45184100>slaveryPlease point out where this kid has given us an order and we've been unable to refuse it.
>33 votes > -19 Ok, writing for real this time, just needed some air.
>>45184153Oh just wait for it, It's going to happen soon.
>>45184254Don't let this get you down OP, the next thread will have a better score.As long as you don't fuck it up.
>>45184255>>45184153Don't be silly we Harem anime now, probably a monster girl one. If he said that is what this quest is at the start nobody would be upset.
>>45184255Oh? You mean it hasn't happened yet and you're basing it entirely off of your assumptions?You might have considered waiting until it actually happened to complain about it.
>>45184132SeriouslyPeople thinking that they just got roped into another shitty harem quest forget that they're playing as the girl, they don't have to play into the harem shit if they don't want toIn fact, this could end up becoming a plot hook: Find out what the fae are doing and get our freedom back, so that we can go back to hanging out with our /v/irgin friend
>>45184288Yeah, because they wouldn't have bothered getting invested.
>>45184288Fuck that noise, we joined in for Urban Oni, not Slave Bitch. If there's going to be a harem we should be the one getting girls.
>>45184254Just shoot an email to the admin. He might be able to blow the ip switching cunt out.
As far as I can see its just two Fucktards whinging about this. Its so sad that tg has to deal with this sort of people. Ignore it QM.
Another clarification, this isn't a smut or harem quest. I'm not against writing smut, but it's not the focus.
>>45184400That's pretty unlikely. The admin hates quests in general and resents having to allow them on the archive in the first place.
>>45184347You're jumping to conclusions based on assumptions and highly limited information. For all we know, the guy doesn't even want to have ownership of another sentient being and just thanks us and sends us on his way back to our everyday life.Two weeks later, we'll receive a desperate phone call from him, as he tells us that he's being hunted by fey assassins, and he needs our help. For some reason, we can't bring ourself to say no...
>>45184400And fuck over the rest of the people who down voted it.
>>45184424What all two of them? It's been removed from suptg by the way.
>>45184415If that was the case, You wouldn't have made us a fucking slave.
>>45184415Don't even sweat it man, it's about 2 very loud assholes who are dragging this down, I am still enjoying the quest and want to see which direction this goes.
>>45184424I'm sure the three of you can cope.
>>45184415Except for Nate's face, right?
>>45184417>Implying we'll tell him our phone number>Implying the next action we take isn't going to be making our number unlisted>>45184442No, it just doesn't display things with a score below -20 unless you're searching by lowest score or a specific tag.
>>45184442Oh no there it is never mind.
>>45184464>No, it just doesn't display things with a score below -20 unless you're searching by lowest score or a specific tag.And how "convenient" that it stopped just short of -20.
>>45184458Shhh, I like Nate's face
>>45184492Well it's -21 now.
>>45184501>Nate confirmed for self insert
>>45184492Also convienient that 37 people out of all 40 posters decided to vote.
>>45184458A teenage girl finds a guy cute. SHOCKER. oh wait this is tg, where every girl has to be a lesbian.
>>45184552Oh please, like /tg/ isn't all about being the straight macho man white knight.
>>45184575Not that guyBut you cant say you arent aware of how 90% of female Quest MCs end up as lesbians or at least bi
>>45184501>>45184552We're an oni, and that means a deep seated need to smash stuff. What could be more perfect than taking something so beautiful and destroying it?
>>45184575The only Quest I can recall where female PC wasn't gay is the one where GM put his foot down and said fuck you /tg/ she is straight.
>>45184607One of the reasons I'm throwing Amy's sexuality up in the air, as far as plot is concerned it doesn't matter.
>42 votesWell, that's more than the number of posters in the thread. So unless people are angry enough to downvote, but not to post or wait and see, I think someone is definitely flipping their IP
>>45184621Pretty much everyone's happy with Sierra having a boyfriend, too.
>>45184607Sure, but if we're talking stereotypes on tg i've seen almost every quest pick male macho style, with a side of not giving a fuck.
>>45184635It's happening on both sides now, since it's popping above -21 only to go back below.
>>45184635>Implying there aren't any lurkers.
>>45184627We all know she secretly wants that /v/irgin pootang.
>>45184575Every quest I have come across that have female lead. That lead is always Gay (except for Exalted quest)>>45184653No one on tg has the self control to not post during a shit storm. Lurkers are a myth.
>>45184653>I don't care enough to post but care enough to vote>There are also like 115-20 of meLikely
>>45184653>Implying lurkers are angry enough to go and vote, not angry enough to post, coordinated enough to keep it floating at 21, and all immediately assume slavery
>>45184627So if we get away from the kid we can try to progress our friendship with Trish?
>>45184695Never read it.
>>45184698I don't see why we can't do that either way.
>>45184662>/v/ermin getting pussy of any kind>Ever
>>45184721Never read it.
>>45184708>>45184728Read more before complaining then.
>>45184719I don't really see it working out if we're this kid's lackey. Amy is meant to be an independent oni.
>>45184643Yep. For once GM actually knew what the fuck he was doing and how to pull it off. I wish that happened more often.
>>45184786Because he was upfront about everything the entire time I followed it.
>>45184785Anon, just because we have to listen to what this kid tells us doesn't mean we're no longer allowed to have a social life.
>>45184785Assuming we don't 'accidentally' kill him during the rage.
>>45184805Later on 4chan>Oni slave wat do
You can’t believe it, you’ve been chained. Chained to some brat who you don’t even know, it’s almost like God is spitting on you for his own amusement. You’re starting to see red, your hands start quivering and shaking on their own and your breath is getting ragged. Dan starts to move back slowly, fear apparent on his face. “Amy what’s wrong? Why are you making that face?” You ignore him and stand up, turns out it’s not just your arms and hands shaking, your legs are too. You’ve never been this angry before, and in an instant the magic you use to conceal your true form is gone. There’s a reason you wear stretch shirts and pants when working out. Your Oni form is about a foot and a half taller than your human form, and much more muscular. The sleeves on your shirt can’t be saved but your pants are fine. Oh, you think bra just snapped, you’ll be mad about that when you’re not currently being mad at everything else. You loom over Dan, his face paler than a bed-sheet. “A-Ammny, why did you just grow a foot? And sprout horns?” He asks barely able to force it out. >Try and Explain >Blow of some steam >Call him a nigger

>>45184935I'd recommend resolving it, rather than let things sit and get bitter.
>>45184935This anon has the right idea. End this in one or two posts. Let people cool off. Think about how to proceed from here. Maybe post what exactly being chained means if you think what it is going to help the situation and you don't want to make any last-second retcons before it's too late.
>>45184935At the very least, clarify whether or not this is slavery or merely some compulsion to not harm him or whatever.
>>45185054Trying to resolve it right now is about as likely to make it bitter, possibly moreso, and the QM has been running for quite a while already.
Just realized there's no way Nate would voluntarily fight us just for his girlfriend. He's probably in a similar bind as we are now.
>>45185149Never underestimate the stupidity of teenage males.
>>45185149>A Texan highschool quarterback would never get in a stupid fight
>>45185149Maybe, but he's definitely no Oni. He'd have put up a better fight if he was.
>>45185149Yes, Yes he would.
>>45185149Never underestimate what a hot girl can do, Also thinking with your dick.
You ignore Dan for a moment, despite how angry you are you don’t feel like smashing him into red paste, yet. You quickly walk over to the tree line and punch a tree in half. You here a muttered meeping sound in the background, Dan appears to be terrified, good. You quickly realize that punching innocent trees isn’t going to help you cool down, well, maybe not quickly you kinda punched 10 trees. Instead of harmless trees, you think a nice quick round of “Murder the fucking faerie that put a chain around your neck” is in order. You stomp off to where you put the bitch down, only to find that her and her cronies are gone. You did not fucking need that right now. “Are you going to be okay?” Dan asks as he walks over to you. You try counting to ten, like your mother taught you when you first started getting angry all the time. You make it to fifty, before you speak. >Explain to him what happened >Yell incoherently >Write-in?
>>45185208>Explain to him what happenedLet's just get it over with already.
>>45185208>Explain to him what happened
>>45185208>>Write-in?punch the ground. ORAORAORAORAORA.
>>45185208>"Do you know where those faeries live?"But angrily.
>>45185208>>Explain to him what happened
>>45185208>Yell incoherentlySmear him
>>45185208>>Explain to him what happenedBut in the most angry pissed off way possible and threaten him to death if you're not released.
>>45185208> Explain what happenedPerhaps it is time for the typical crude, profane speech of oni to come into play
>>45185208>Explain to him what happened Please just clear it up already
>>45185208>Explain to him what happenedMake sure to tell him that no, this is not just like one of his japanese animes.
>>45185208>>Explain to him what happenedThe moment of truth. Sort of. Not a full truth but at least something.
>>45185208>>Explain to him what happenedHave we not had this same choice like three times?
What colour is our Oni form?
>>45185208>Explain to him what happenedAgain, mention that whatever we do now is going to be his fault unless he releases us
>>45185208>Explain to him what happenedPresumably angrily
Jesus, everybody assuming the worst from this kid despite knowing literally nothing but his name and that fairies are pissed at him.
>>45185316What's the odds he pulls an Aladin and let's us go?
>>45185316He's literally enslaved us, of course we're pissed. Doesn't matter if he fucked up by accident or not.
>>45185332Good because if he doesn't we tell our relatives. We live in Texas right?
>>45185350Oh grow up, quit getting mad at somebody who's as much a victim as us.
>>45185316Everyone is a strong word. It could actually become so pretty easily at this point tho.>>45185288Either OP's pic or red. Most certainly not blue.
>>45185369>I just got sold into slavery to a random owner, this is fucking hell.>Oh grow up, the owner's the victim.
“Dan I’m an Oni... AND YOU JUST CHAINED ME!” You yell at him, struggling to keep some calm. “What does that mean? He asks, trepidation in his voice. “It means I’m bound to you.” “Like a slave or something?” He asks back rather quickly. “I’m not entirely sure,” You admit, calming down somewhat. “But I’ll be damned if I stay bound to some fucking cuntbag nerdy LOSER, who had the bright idea to steal something from FUCKING FAE!” “Can’t I just Un-chain you then?” He asks incredibly calm. Huh, you didn’t really think about that. “I didn’t steal anything you, just so you know. I learned something of vital importance to them, and when I didn’t tell them, they sent those guys you beat up to take it from my mind.” Well Shit, this just got a lot more complicated.
>>45185390ikrdude didn't even want a slave and now he has to deal with one
And that's it for this thread, fuck I'm wiped. Archive and Twitter are in the second post, thanks to everybody for participating. I hope you enjoyed and had fun. I'll stick around for a bit to answer questions and criticisms.
>>45185392See, he even offered to undo it. Y'all are just a bunch of whiny babies.
>>45185462What exactly is the difference between an oni and someone who's "oni-blooded", since apparently you can be a full oni even if none of your relatives are.
>>45185462So, will we have to wait for next thread to see if its as simple as him releasing us?
>>45185462Thank you for your time and effort StrikeZone. I'm looking forward to the next thread.
>>45185462Thanks for running, don't let the salty anons get to you. You're doin just fine.
>>45185462Thanks for running, and sorry about the mess.Just to clarify though, what extent of control is the binding?
>>451854791) just because he offered, we don't know that he can.2) Even if he can, it's an obvious copout based on the complaints.
>>45185479Probably wasn't strike's original plan.
>>45185392Fuck, we probably have to take this guy to grandpa.>>45185462Slavery shitstorm aside, I think it's a good quest. I understand you're new and looking for input, but personally I'd appreciate less "am i doing all right?" posts and the like. I know that it can be daunting especially when something like this happens, but at the very least this goes to show that people will let you know when you're pissing them off.I'm hopeful for the next thread OP.
>>45185479Because people complained.
>>45185462Thanks SZ. Fun thread.
>>45185462Mythos dump? What Amy knows and perhaps some things she doesn't in spoilers.
>>45185462Thanks for running QMTry not to let this ruin it for youIf there is one thing you should take from this thread, it's that you should try to avoid doing what those/that anon was accusing you of doing, even though you weren't actually doing it
>>45185462>hope you enjoyed and had funEh, more stressed out than having funI will say that as much as it doesn't fit the "your family knows jack about you" bit, some clarifications would really go a long way to avoiding more of this.
>>45185527Or maybe because the kid isn't an asshole and actually doesn't feel like owning another person. I know the world you live in is void of such caring people but try to remember you're in the minority.
>>45185515>>45185521Or your baseless assumptions were wrong. But that's just silly
>>45185590>Doesn't know shit about QM agency to cut lossesI feel sorry for you.
>>45185493Oni-blooded are the direct descendants of a full Oni. Usually between a human woman and a Male Oni. They're kind of like half-elves. >>45185502The mess is no problem, the binding doesn't actually let him control you at all. All it actively does is prevent you from letting him die in good conscious, or hurt him. The chains are a physical representation of the bond the Oni and Lord share. >>45185515>Even if he can, it's an obvious copout based on the complaints. Would you believe if I said I wasn't a big enough dick to force you into an un-reversible situation? >>45185587Noted, sorry about the stress
>>45185641>Would you believe if I said I wasn't a big enough dick to force you into an un-reversible situation?No.
>>45185672Well that sounds like a personal issue
>>45185641>Would you believe if I said I wasn't a big enough dick to force you into an un-reversible situation?At this point? No. Gotta work hard to earn back a good chunk of your playerbase's trust after the shit you pulled today.
>>45185613Are you really so jaded that a person not wanting to take advantage of a situation he's been put in counts as QM agency?
>>45185641Would you believe if I said I wasn't a big enough dick to force you into an un-reversible situation? Yes, because I'm not a troll douchebag that can't stand others having a fun time.
>>45185698What shit, literally nothing fucking happened
>>45185672Sorry anon, but it's true. I've been in enough quests to know what to do and what to avoid, sorry if this shook your faith in me. Any other questions? I could do a bit of lore dump if you want, although specific questions would help immensely.
>>45185641Okay, let me get this straight: Oni blooded are descendants of oni, but not full oni. You said earlier that neither our mother nor our father were oni, and neither was grandpa.How the fuck are we a full Oni?
>>45185698>good chunkOh no, those 3 anons feelings have been hurt by something happening in the quest, better do whatever I can to appease them or else I'll lose all my players.
>>45185726>I've been in enough quests to know what to do and what to avoidYou demonstrated that in this quest alright.
>>45185726What colour is our Oni form?>>45185734Tiefling maybe.
>>45185734Hmmm, this is hard to explain. Let's say your great-grandfather had black hair, but none of his kids or grand kids do, only you. Also magic genetics
>>45185759He sure did, by not giving in to the trolls.
>>45185726What boards does Trish browse?
>>45185698He didn't pull anything. You guys are just so paranoid that you assumed the worst.
>>45185787We should learn that by asking her to show us
>>45185759I kind of deserve that I think.. Oh well, live and learn >>45185760As a metal/void oni your skin is a greyish white and you have silver/black horns. Also your eyes are silver with black irises.
>ITT: Paranoid shitposters and apologetic damage controllersHoly fucking shit, ignore each other, ask what you want of the QM and then fuck off until thread 3. If you didn't like it, don't return. If you don't like the shitposters, stop feeding them.
>>45185787She lives to shitpost on /a/ because of how easy it is. She visits /v/ and /vg/ as well, sometimes /pol/ for the humor.
>>45185726How do the different mythologies coexist?Which ones are actually true? What does Amy know about them? What doesn't she know about them? How does everything interact with modern science?And tell us about oni. Why do they wear the human form mask?
>>45185849Oh boy >How do the different mythologies coexist? Somewhat uneasily, they're pretty pissed about the other mythologies moving where they aren't supposed to. >Which ones are actually true? Almost all of them, in the US you run into native american and old world mythologies the most. >What does Amy know about them? About as much as anyone else, the only ones she knows a lot about are Western Europe's and Japan's >What doesn't she know about them? A LOT >How does everything interact with modern science? Human magic can screw with technology a bit, but monster magics don't. >And tell us about oni. Why do they wear the human form mask? In the old days it was so they could fight people without being called a filthy cheater, nowadays it's so Amy doesn't get sanctioned or lynched.
>>45185948>Somewhat uneasily, they're pretty pissed about the other mythologies moving where they aren't supposed to.So there are mythos gang wars going on around the world?
>>45185780That's not even what a troll is.
>>45185948>Almost all of them, in the US you run into native american and old world mythologies the most.so what's it going to be like when we run into our first skin walker?
>>45186018You'd better hope it's a human skin walker, the non-human ones are bad news. Due to void though the human ones are pretty easy to over power. I can't wait till you meet a wendigo
>>45186049but we're in the south, those guys are normally up north or in the rockys
>>45185759Maybe he learned from Chuckles or planefag. Those guys are amazing at pissing players off.
>>45186049[spoi;er]Trish is a Wendgio isn't she?
>>45186074Profound sadness, maybe I can just plot one in for my obvious railroading schemes
>>45186074He's on vacation.
>>45186091She's just a chaner anon, which is arguably the worst monster of them all.
>>45186101>>45186128These are me, took my trip off
>>45186150speaking of which aren't skin walkers and wendigios the same thing really?
>>45186181Not even close.
>>45186091She's something like Vietnamese, though. Admittedly, they do have their own mythologies, but I'm not familiar enough to say if they have many generic youkai/yaoguai/yokwe like other Asian cultures do.
>>45186308Pretty sure they at least have the nasty sort of kitsune that eats your liver.
>>45186495Kumiho are korean, I thought.
>>45186495>>45186552There was indeed a nine-tailed fox, but it was killed by some dude.There was also some kind of tree that killed people, which was killed by some dude.Most of their myths, as far as I know, are of either some benign nigh-immortal creature (like a phoenix or turtle) or some monster that killed people before getting killed by some guy. I think they tend to be unique monsters rather than generic races too.
>>45186308Trish is actually Vietnamese, nice catch Any more questions before we fall off? I'll be running again on Friday, maybe tomorrow as well.
Aztec shit a thing? we gonna be able to learn human sacrificing magic?
>>45186912Is it? Yes, learn it? Unfortunately not, that falls under human magic, which can't learn. Don't worry though, the more you guys use the Void successfully the more magic you'll develop.
>>45186953*which you can't learn ugh
>>45185462People get salty over certain things. Write the story you came here to write.
>>45187623I'll try anon, thanks.
>>45187623If that was all OP wanted to do, a novel would be better. Quests are a bit more interactive and rely on giving the audience a feeling of agency. Still it can all work out if run well.
>>45187804Communication is the most important thing
>>45187836If I wanted to write a novel I'd do so, I'm here because I want to be.
