    It seems to be a cactus. Strange, you had been certain it was a tree moments before. Cactuses shouldn't grow in a forest, anyway. Perplexing.

    Start looking for Cultist and recently-unmutated Goldmoon. Also Coco, the disconcerting lich.

    In the mean time it might be prudent to recommend Beardbeard gain control of his new appendage, preferably via a beating followed by intimidation.

    Meant to say that Beardbeard delivers the beating/intimidation to his own hand, not Aldwin trying to do so to Beardbeard. That would be crazy.

    Start heading towards Goldmoon's place. Now that she's ambulatory she'll probably want to find out what's been going on. Also, it's a logical place for Aldwin to go to eventually since it's a safehouse for him.

    But everyone thinks she's dead. That's a very useful thing for an assassin. It might be unwise to reveal herself so soon.

    That said, it's a good reason to go toward the Goldmoon HQ and ask around for Cultist (while carefully not mentioning Goldmoon's resurrection).

    The Hive could help us search. Having a lot of little creatures looking for Cultist would come in handy.

    On the other hand, it might be hostile, and we've already used Aldwin's Make-A-Friend this session, so let's not do that just yet.

    If Trapsense doesn't help, let's go to Goldmoon's like we were planning.

    Aaaand not quite the end of Aldwin. Feel free to ask any questions you like about what happens to him after all of this, and barring cataclysmic events on the BB and Garrelf side of things, I will answer to the best of my artistic ability.

    Also it turns out Aldwin is a pretty firm believer of Fate/gullible audience.

    For me it was like the time when Tom kissed Ruby. It was adorable and cute, but didn't much affect to the plot in general.

    Granted, an actual proposal is slightly bigger thing, but you still have to admit most of us would have taken this route if given a choice.

    Tom wasn't a character under our control at the time. Ruby was.

    Besides, the point, it's one thing to have a moment between characters that wasn't suggested that fits with their personalities and is a minor detail, it's another to do so in order to drastically alter the course of the ongoing game.

    I took "patching things up" to mean FIXING things rather than ending it. Typically, the idiom to "patch things up with" refers to repairing a relationship rather than ending it.

    Also, what about the lich? What about Finlay? Why did Aldwin decide to stop adventuring at the drop of a hat when his only "job" is a very dangerous one that involves management of a group of assassins? It doesn't make sense to me.

    We can take care of Finaly using Kav, no need to drag Aldwin into this. As much as I don't want to let the guy go - he started out as a sidequest so it's time to end it and move along.
    >> Anonymous 05/22/09(Fri)02:24 No.4623700
    Another good point. Beardbeard, Goldmoon, Garelf, all these people currently have big, sweeping things to worry about, like assassinations and ending the world. But for the longest time, Aldwin's driving force has been... baby stuff. Maybe he does deserve to retire. He would probably make a better father than thief/adventurer.
    >> Anonymous 05/22/09(Fri)02:24 No.4623703
    And, you know, the preparations he's making to destroy the guild.

    So what, Goldmoon gets killed, we bring her back, our actions both incite Finlay to build up forces for attacking the guild and put a djinn as the God of Fey, and that's...the end?

    Sorry, that's a massive let-down.
    >> Anonymous 05/22/09(Fri)02:24 No.4623706
    And the Goldmoon Slayers power struggle. But we've got Mado & Nevada for that. Aldwin can stay in the background if he wants.

    Gnome? What? Is this really supposed to be the end of Aldwinside? I don't think that >>4623156 meant end aldwinside, but to rather bring the goals of Aldwin inline with the main plot and to reach a logical conclusion. This could've been done if we'd gone to Buzzardloved with Beardbeard. Then he could've explained the Garrelf situation.
    >> The Scribbler 05/22/09(Fri)02:25 No.4623709

    Alright alright, I get it. Far too abrupt of an ending. Well, Aldwinside has nothing really left. The only reason his side even had anything to go off of last week was because Beardbeard was around, and we needed to fix Goldmoon. Both of these have changed, and I have come to realize that Aldwin's side of the story has almost no impact on the rest of the story anymore.

    So. I have come to a conclusion. Rather than an ending... lets just go to his pause screen. Aldwin deserves a better ending than this. I am not a writer. I will think this over for the next couple of weeks, and come up with something other than a crapshoot ending. Something that wraps up the Finlay problem, for instance, seeing as how he is kinda a big problem. For tonight, however, adventuring is over.

    Which makes this the second time I have totally dropped the ball on Aldwinside. Rather than spoil what was once another interesting part of DQ, I would rather retire it, but as I have said before... it does deserve a better ending than this. My apologies.

    Although, it is worth mentioning >>4623652 is correct. Aldwin will still be doing his assassin management gig for cashmonies - its just no longer worth Anonymous's attention.
    >> Anonymous 05/22/09(Fri)02:27 No.4623727
    I'm sorry, but just because Aldwin's quest lacks direction, that makes this, at best, giving up.

    >> Anonymous 05/22/09(Fri)02:30 No.4623751
    To be honest, Aldwin has no real connection with the driving quests anymore. He doesn't know Finlay's still around, and has no way to find out without massive meta-gaming (Kav is the only one who actually knows, and she and Aldwin don't even know each other). The Garelf and Satan stuff doesn't affect him at all, because he's not a godslayer and the actions of the gods are meaningless in his little world.

    Coco and Goldmoon are the only things in his quest which need to be resolved, and the two of them can easily form a new party now that Goldmoon isn't out to destroy Coco.

    Give Aldwin some months of peace and quiet - aside from all the Guild stuff, and possibly of the baby if it's born during the time - and then have Finlay suddenly crash the wedding. That'd be pretty neat.

    Just look at that. Look at what you people made Gnome do. They had a happy ending, and now more crap is going to have to happen to them.
    It's not as if they were going to vanish forever, right?
    Open question: Cultist obviously deserves the best ring Aldwin can "acquire," and that's obviously not going to be a low-value, mundane ring. Not to mention Xom probably left her with some kind of "wedding present". So what kind of awesome intrinsics does she have now, and is all that magical energy safe for the baby?

    Ah, because you hate love and joy. Perfectly reasonable.
    The thing is, they were, and still are, seriously sidetracked, or at least way ahead of the main arc. The only ideas people had for what to do with them were things like "let's metagame and go on a Finlay hunt."
    Before the sudden reversal, I was expecting to see occasional "meanwhile, at the windmill" posts, where they continue to provide the down-to-earth, non-godkilling elements without slowing things down by having threads devoted to them, and maybe, in due time, Aldwin would become a PC again.
    What I see as more of a copout, actually, is Xom being so damn cooperative. Seeing Goldmoon come to terms with being alive but damaged would have been interesting, even if the angst would sidetrack things further.

    I'm not sure if Aldwin knowing about Finlay is really metagaming. He had a conversation concerning Finlay while in the city of the dead, which informed him that if he was a worshiper of a certain god then he'd still be undead. And then there's the nightmares.
