You're pretty much the moe personification of Dwarf Fortress, with all the baggage that accompanies that horrific little title: you can bend reality's elbow behind its back, in exchange for being glitchy and prone to intricately simulated injuries.Lately, you feel like you've constantly been on the verge of a particularly destructive tantrum, because you never signed up for all this insane potentially-world-ending-events bullshit and you're at your wits' end.Seriously, the return of the dark goddess Arfoire would've been bad enough on its own. Same with accidentally getting banished to the hyperdimensional void, along with an uncertain number of other nation-less adventurers and/or personifications. And there was that time you accidentally swapped bodies with a divine being, which really scrapes the bottom of the fucking barrel when it comes to digging out depraved plot hooks.ALL of that happened pretty much in sequence, and now, you're staring at the unnaturally powered-up form of CPU Black Heart. She's being puppeted by a fake Histoire, and they all want nothing more than to grab a great big fistful of your entrails and decorate their houses with 'em.If Gamindustri was a dwarven fortress, this situation would be like... if its only manager/bookkeeper/broker suddenly turns out to be a demon, which immediately proceeds to transform a load-bearing noble into a megabeast that you can't kill because the entire fucking fortress would devolve into the sort of tantrum spiral that atom smashes its weapon lords, floods the surface world with magma, and deconstructs every piece of furniture in sight.(Cont.)
>>48661806You have a mini-fortress under your feet, though it's just a long tunnel you plowed through the pavement from the Planeptune Basilicom. You don't think it will be very much help.Right now, the only OTHER thing standing between you and a painful death is CPU Purple Heart. To beat a dead analogy to death, she's another load-bearing noble, and it turns out all /her/ equipment is made of iron (while CPU Black Heart's is all steel).You can barely keep up with their movements, let alone the damn anime-style fighting. All you can make out is high-speed insanity as the goddesses flit around in dazzling displays of light and motion, two vaguely girl-shaped blurs rebounding against each others' swords as they try to fucking fancy-spin each other to death. Even so, you've kinda got a handle on CPU Purple Heart's style, and you don't know how much longer she can hold on for.Good thing that big sis Estelle's approaching fast.(Cont.)
>>48661808Coming in from distant Leanbox, the Dragon Warrior's rainbow bridge arcs across the sky like someone's painting it onto reality in one long, broad stroke that's rapidly accelerating. According to Therapist, she's got Rokko with her. Any other day, that'd be a fighting force strong enough to beat anything this shitty universe throws at you, but you're... not so sure, given this particularly shitty situation.Next to you, Iffy curses under her breath, pulling out those weird punching daggers of hers. She looks around desperately, torn between conflicting duties: on one hand, Neptune's one misstep away from getting gutted by Noire. And on the other hand, those few civilians who haven't (wisely) started running are just starting to scream in horrified fear, and the building closest to the Planeptune Basilicom is looking considerably more like a perforated beehive. "Look, just- go help Neptune! We're out of time!" she yells to you, running off to get civilian evacuation kicked into high gear.You close your eyes, seeing with your mind. Right- they're in range of your little Therapist messaging system. You've gotta update Estelle and Rokko on the situation and point them toward the largest threat, because they're coming in hot.>CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:[ ] [NEXT BLACK] "Noire's being puppeted by one of Arfoire's creations, she's turned into a super-powerful monstrosity, help Neptune take her down before we're all fucked!"[ ] ["HISTOIRE"] "A fake 'Histoire' has been whispering crazy conspiracy theories in Noire's ears and turned her into a super-powerful monstrosity!

Distract NEO-Blackheart (Deck her in the schnozz) Everyone, excluding Nepnep and Urist2. Fudge up Book Birtch to stop Share-Inflow (whoever is left available)3. Summon Sharacite-Gate to have an Empty Vessel for Shares (Urist's Job)4. Make the Nep read details about NEO-Blackheart (Since she was teammember with her before) We need info on WHERE the shares are, WHAT properties they have, and HOW to move them.5. ESSENTIAL PART:TopNep, REWRITER of HISTORY and TIME, transferes Shares from N-BH to Sharacite-Gateway. Else Urist has to do the work.6. Pray to Armok that we don't become the first CPU of OUR OWN Continent. Let's also hope that we don't succumb to the effects those Shares might have.

>>48662007It's simple, really.>pic related
WHOOPS, started writing without calling the vote! It's a solid majority for taking out Histoire first!
I must've missed something important, because last time I checked, Urist hacked Neptune and Noire was just coming.
>>48661889A simple plan, fraught with so many things to run askew.If successful, we would posses a charged Sharacite - Gate, depower Noire and a dispelled doppelgänger. But so many things to be a danger, more than probably should be faced at the moment.Or just small things that could simply not work. But an interesting statement about putting of trying to existentializing Uni.Also, hopefully I have cleansed my mind so far, that I won't try to emulate the Narrator of Darkest Dungeons.
>>48662157Sounds like you indeed missed last thread
>>48662175You should, yeah. Because that game is shitty.
>>48662175Why not have a little !!FUN!! from time to time?Risk = !!FUN!!
>>48662206This is Dwarf Fortress, not Dark Souls.
>>48662175>>48662206This is not risky, this is unnecessarily insane.We may as well go for it.
>Every time DFHack is mentioned
>>48662220I stand corrected.Death = !!FUN!!
How about we just hack the fake Histoire?
>>48662286Compared to Noire, we didn't really have her in a party to have the knowledge to do that. At least that's what I know from all the questioning of Blorp
>>48661829>[Coming In Hot]Brothers of the mine rejoice!Yay, Dorf Quest is back! How have you been, Blorp?
>>48662301But anything bad happening to the faksty will advantage us, so we can experiment.
>>48662259That can not be worse than having Lyner throw the "Ar Tonelico??" in the first Ar Tonelico game.Mind you, it is the only know instance that I know of that a game took the description of a combat Item WMD to its logical conclusion.
>>48662327Can you provide that something BAD will happen instead of powering her up?
>>48662377A living being is like a complicated machine.If you pull random plugs, something bad will happen. It's only a matter of time.
>mfw Blorp finally came back>... but it's 5AM and I really need to sleepWell, fuck. I'll see ya all later.
>>48662399Well, living beings are more like complicated machines with a pretty large amount of redundancys.Most of the time, if you "pull plugs", nothing will be happening. And even the important parts are resilient.
>>48662476Sleep is for the weak!And I can continue to sleep when I'm dead.
>>48662399>>48662479Not only that, but IS IT even accutaly considered a "living" being?
>>48662148Bloorrpp, thank goodness you are alive. I thought...i thought....
>>48662557He has a Twitter, for when you need reassurance, don't worry.
>>48662521.... good question. If it is just a construct, regardless if purely magical, magically animated, mechanically animated or similiar, pulling things could easily unreavel her.But we would also have to consider then if and how violent its power source would react to that.Especially if it acts as a conduit.
I'm voting for [X] Keikaku because I think we can still do that with the way the vote's been called. It's a dumb plan with a million ways to go horribly wrong, but it could also go horribly right, which means more !!FUN!! for everyone.
>>48661829>[X] ['HISTOIRE']Estelle starts yelling across the telepathic link before you even manage to draw breath (and before you remember that you don't /need/ to draw breath before using Therapist, go figure). The Dragon Warrior's voice cuts through your mind like- like molten butter going through a knife; injured as you are, you nearly collapse to your knees, wincing.>"Urist! Urist, what's going on? Planeptune started going all wobbly and started building itself!"Oh. Yeah. You'd almost forgotten about that little bout of reality-bending bookkeeping.>"And- is that /Noire/ down there? Why's she getting hit by lightning??"Right. Okay. You straighten back up and give Estelle and Rokko the quickest rundown you've ever given ANYONE: Arfoire's created a fake 'Histoire' who's been pulling the wool over Noire's eyes, and when we revealed that to Noire, 'Histoire' did wacky lightning things and turned her into a mind-fucked powered-up next-gen goddess, GET 'HISTOIRE.'Your only answer is a quick stuttered affirmative from Rokko- but up above, the rainbow suddenly pulls into a sharp angle as it turns on a fucking dime. From down on the ground, you see the silhouette of a short-haired swordswoman crouched as she rides the rainbow with her sword out, a sleekly armored form balanced next to her.Even above the sounds of two goddesses duking it out, you start hearing something akin to a jet's engines screaming through the air, if jets had a choir of heavenly angels strapped to their sides rather than constantly exploding metal cylinders.(Cont.)
So I was giving a try to Prison Architect. It is surprisingly similar to DF. Keep suicidal drunk psychopaths from killing themselves.
>>48662399A computer program, however, is more like a giant house of cards made of houses of cards. Fuck up one tiny thing and it implodes. Sometimes it's built to handle this, and gracefully folds up. Other times it seizes up and disintegrates on the spot. Most of the time it just stops acting in a predictable and desirable way. Given that DFhack has demonstrated that it can grant the ability to shit all over the laws of reality, we could easily turn our foe into something utterly impossible to fight simply because it doesn't play by any recognizable rules. On the other hand, super-high-output machinery just tends to explode. We, and people we give a fuck about, are nearby so that's a shitty idea.
>>48662636'Histoire' remains half-crumpled against the ground, looking nearly broken from where her everything ~accidentally~ walked into the business end of your warhammer- up until she hears that sound. Like some invisible puppeteer's pulling on her strings, the fake book fairy pivots unnaturally up to her feet and swivels to glare at the incoming rainbow."Get over here!" 'Histoire' shrieks.Putting on an impossible burst of speed, Next Black kicks straight through CPU Purple Heart's guard before throwing herself into a fully boosted dash, invisible thrusters flaring and putting her at full speed before you can even blink-- throwing her into an intercept course toward Estelle and Rokko, and bringing her into your sights.You have seconds to act.>CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:[ ] [SHIELD] Throw yourself into Next Black's flight path, forming your liquid metal gauntlets into the strongest shield possible.[ ] [POWER] Throw yourself into Next Black's flight path, charging up ANY of your powers to hurl at her face.[ ] [ZAP: KEY FRAGMENT] Cut off Next Black's power source of corrupt shares by interrupting that lightning flow with the Key Fragment.[ ] [ZAP: SHARICITE DOOR] Cut off Next Black's power source of corrupt shares by interrupting that lightning flow with your Sharicite portal.[ ] [DF HACK] Pull a split-second on-the-fly hack against either Next Black or 'Histoire,' whichever of them proves easier.[ ] ['HISTOIRE'] Hurl anything handy at 'Histoire's' head and try to knock her out, interrupting her mind-bendy bullshit reinforcements call.[ ] [NEPTUNE] Boost Neptune with anything you've got handy.[ ] [WRITE-IN]

The fake Histoire's tiny fairy face is twisted with anger as she tries and fails to get up, her broken legs unable to support her weight and her tattered wings twitching uselessly. Even her book is falling apart, its spine broken by your weapon.You have seconds to act, so you grab whatever's at the top of your inventory and wing it right at 'Histoire's' smug fucking face before you even begin to consider whether you /should/.The moment the object leaves your hand, you realize that you have made a terrible mistake."Kill the fake adv-"Caught up commanding Next Black, 'Histoire' never sees the Dutiful Chastity coming until it materializes right on top of her. Unfolding from a stockpile-able item to a full-fledged piece of furniture, the artifact Sharicite door frame slams into the fairy AND the pavement with enough force to embed the engraved masterwork three inches into the ground, cutting off Arfoire's creation with a wet crunch that atomizes her as per proper dwarven physics.There's no blood, though, there's just... a rapidly evaporating puddle of unreality, some sort of glitchy substance pooling underneath the door.You don't have time to celebrate your violent victory, because Next Black is hurtling toward the Dutiful Chastity.For a split-second, you're terrified that Noire will go through the Sharicite door and turn your fortress into a smoldering crater. A split-second later, you realize just how naive that fear is when Noire, wreathed in the power of corrupt shares and going fast enough to fuck with sound, slams INTO the unbreakable artifact door frame with almost enough force to stop the world from turning.(Cont.)
>>48664280That's very nearly the last damn thing you see, because you've got a front row seat to some sort of terrifying gigavolt light show with CPU Black Heart smack-dab in the middle. Wild arcs of untamed electricity lash out in every direction, shearing pavement and narrowly missing your head, and you blindly throw yourself onto your stomach- but even then, you can see Noire's slender form illuminated from within as untold amounts of divine energy flow to and from the Dutiful Chastity, and you have NO goddamn clue what is going on right now, what the everloving fuck."Noire!" CPU Purple Heart yells, her feet leaving the ground as she boosts toward the other goddess, her hand outstretched, and-Silence.Hesitantly, you raise your head back up. Dutiful Chastity is the first thing to greet your eyes; the Sharicite door is sparking wildly, glowing with some sort of inner power. You don't know if that worries you more, or the fact that Neptune and Noire are nowhere to be seen.Before you can do anything else, you're roughly hoisted to your feet, then further UP, and shaken by a wild-eyed brunette in a trenchcoat."Where are they," Iffy hisses. "What did you /do/?"You don't know! Seriously, you have no goddamn idea!Iffy's reply is cut off by the inexplicable, distinctly depressing sound of a rainbow dissipating behind you, and then Estelle's by your side, hoisting you easily. "That's my question too!" the Dragon Warrior chirrups, putting you down with a pat on the head (which you can't help but accept with ill grace). "Buuuut we've got more important things to deal with right now.""Like what!?" you and Iffy say at the exact same time, the both of you staring at each other before scowling and turning back to face Estelle- or rather, the Blue Bomber slowly approaching."S-Search and. Rescue," Rokko deadpans emotionlessly, her trademark static-y stutter slightly obscuring her words. "Ensuring t-the, safety of half of. Gamindustri's g-goddesses."(Cont.)
>>48664191Is that Urist in a swimsuit getting annoyed by bikini-clad Neptune and ... Nepgya? (At first I tought Nepgear, but Gears eyes are usually rounder.) And is the person in the back our most adorable creeper, Mojang?
>>48664307"That's right!" Estelle points her unsheathed sword at Dutiful Chastity. "We've got to follow them right on in while they're still just arrived!"Well, it's probably fine, you growl. The only place that door leads to is your fortress in the hyperdimensional void.IF nearly chokes. "The what in the what?" she wheezes.... probably, you continue doubtfully, taking in the Dutiful Chastity's changed appearance. Seriously, this door shouldn't be so /big/. The electricity's died down mostly, so you reach out and poke it with a finger-- the possible destinations unfold before you, forming as weird fuzzy corridors in your mind's eye. Right- there's the pathway that leads back to Hyperdimension. And /those/ are the pathways that lead FROM Hyperdimension to Gamindustri, leading to various locations either in or around each nation's Basilicoms. And that-... is a shining pathway that splits off in a THIRD "direction," away from Gamindustri or Hyperdimension, seeming to lead off into fucking infinite darkness.What the hell is /that/?"Our call to a legendary adventure," Estelle nods sagely, before sobering up slightly. "More importantly, we really should recover the goddesses as fast as possible," the brunette continues.'We,' huh."I-It is your door," Rokko shrugs.... nngh. Fine, so it /was/ technically your fault this happened. And if the Dutiful Chastity still works as it used to, anyone who goes in there would probably need your door to get back /out/ of... wherever that new path leads to."Fine." Iffy takes a deep breath, massaging her temples. "... fine. You guys- I don't care which of you- go find Neptune and Noire. I need to clean up back here, and make sure that fake Histoire didn't leave any nasty surprises for us."(Cont.)
>>48663278the cancer mutates
>>48664322You look around. Sure, Nep and Noire fought for all of, like, three minutes, but this whole area in front of the Basilicom /does/ look like a damn war zone: gouges in the earth that stretch for yards, shattered windows, bashed-in building fronts, and scorch marks all over the damn place.... oh. And weren't there two enemies who pinged Therapist a little while back? Seemed that they were searching for a way into the Planeptune Basilicom, for some reason.>CHOOSE WHO GOES TO SEARCH FOR NEP AND NOIRE[ ] [YOU, ESTELLE, ROKKO] All three.[ ] [LEAVE ESTELLE BEHIND] Because Iffy could use some assistance of the charismatic kind.[ ] [LEAVE ROKKO BEHIND] Because Iffy could use some assistance of the super fighting robot kind.[ ] [SOLO EXPLORATION] Go search for Nep and Noire on your own- they shouldn't be far from wherever this door dropped them off.[ ] [BRING SOMEONE ELSE FROM HYPERDIMENSION][ ] [WRITE-IN]

>>48664347>[x] [YOU, ESTELLE, ROKKO] All three.We're not splitting the party the instant we got it back together.

>>48664347>[YOU, ESTELLE, ROKKO] All three.We just grouped back up, no reason to split up again right away.

>>48664471Why not that labyrinth with no map?
Posting future allies (hopefully)
>>48664347>[ALL THREE]Like heck we're going to split the party right after we've finally got the power trio back together.
>>48664519For when we need to cut off some pinkies.
>>48664228In what way exactly? A good or a bad way? I apprechiate the feedback.>>48664252Thank you? Not sure what exactly to respond to that, but I'll investigate!>>48664320Yes it is, to most of the above! We have to prepare for the inevetable. The Hot-springs episode.>>48664485Add babysitting one annoying goddess, one (somewhat) innocent goddess, and one little sister to the mix and you pretty much got it!Thanks for the feedback in general, let's see if I can translate her suffering some into the picture.Finished Whenever.
>>48664347>[X] [YOU, ESTELLE, ROKKO] All three.Huzzah in time for Dorfs!
>>48664560Yes that's her name apart from the chan
>>48664587>Yes it is, to most of the above! We have to prepare for the inevetable. The Hot-springs episode.Could we just not do something else instead? For example an episode where Urist has to do things Underwater?
>>48664587In a bad way, particularly the two on the sides look like they have deformed eggs with faces drawn on them.
>>48664347>[X] [YOU, ESTELLE, ROKKO] All three.The band is back together.
>>48664624Bet you can't guess which franchise she represents.
>>48664694Can't remember if we've already met this one.
>>48664628Not sure what Blorp would say, but according to Gameindustri, she will have to wear this outfit MORE than one time. And if it's just for some Statboost or something like that.But hey, it's just Fan-non.>>48664644Yeah, I just noticed, Let's see if I can fix that.That happens when your perception fucks up alot, and other people have to tell you that stuff. Thanks mate for the feedback, I will do my best.
Right, looks like keeping the gang together wins the vote! However, it DOES make a lot of sense for Urist to tap someone from Hyperdimension to help out Iffy, so we're making a quick pit stop first. Writing!
>>48664497I got no Immages, but I got names:Hotline MiamiPaydayThe Builders:TerrariaStarbound(not sold Seperatly)I could go on, but Blorp called.
>>48664740I'm surprised more people didn't want to make sure those pings weren't enemies that might have found Nepgear.
>>48664717Another thing with the arms on Urist and nepgya is that they look too simple(?). Seems to lack elbow and wrist creases unless if that is detail work that comes later.
>>48664768Has Nepgear even stabilized herself yet? I can't remember.
>>48664790I'd say it's about, dunno 36.5984% percent done? So everything you notice now helps a crappy Drawfag on his way to the semi-decent-middle. Then all I need is a goddamn Cintiq and we are rolling.
>>48664800She was connected to the Sharecite yes. But it was done at an accelerated rate via Neptune shoving Nepgear's hand on it and therefore Nepgear is in deep sleep currently
>>48664831Give or take the fact that I reworked the Original concept about 8 times.
>>48664716Yep, we did.Well, not urist personally, but Blorp had her and Arthuria fight against "Five Night at" and Blanc and Neptune had to save the two from that "Game".
>>48664347>YOU, ROKKO, AND MOJANG>LEAVE ESTELLE TO WATCH THE FORTRESS
>>48664768I'm ready for the Taken arc if you are.
>>48664770One of Estelles freinds and Square Enix>>48664858Her name in Japanese is Waku
>>48664347[ ] [YOU, ESTELLE, ROKKO] All three.
>>48664897It's not even "I will find you and I will kill you," it's "I will find you and I will turn you into something unrecognizable."
>>48664932Ms. Pacman apparently.
>>48664897Man, we already kinda had a little sister captured arc with Mojang though.
>>48665028And that's all I got.
>>48661806Pardon me blorp but....>LCS was originally created as a side project by Tarn and Zach Adams (Bay 12 Games), the brothers behind Dwarf Fortress. They last updated the game in 2004; I picked the source code up in 2007, and in collaboration with more than a dozen programmers and writers from the community, we have managed to release intermittent updates since then.>so has Urist ever met the personification's of prospector, cataclysm DDA or liberal crime squad?>I'm not sure! I'll have to look into those games; outside of Mojang and a few others, though, Urist has generally kept to herself before the events of the quest.how did you not know of this?
>>48665069>how did you not know of this?Wow the worst time for stupid type without thinkingJust saying the character writes itself, could be a rival to urist among other things
>>48665069At times like these I would once more remind everyone that there is an Ask.fm account, on which questions will be answered. It's a safer way. And Blorp is more likely to answere.
>>48665141Can't really put all of that in a ask.fm question I think, don't need to tall me if I copied a question and answer from blorps ask.fm
>>48665165*tell*Can't....type...without...being a idiot....but can't sleep.....must ogrepower the sleep
>>48665165Than try to cut your question down and If Blorp missunderstands, clarify. You wouldn't be the first one who would have had to do that.
>>48664987But Nepgear is a proper daughteru so it'd fit better.
>>48664899> Her name in Japanese isDon't be that guy.
>>48665245What guy? It was a hint. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npOpr7juN1Y
>>48665215I just think we already have enough things to worry about without Blorp throwing in a second rescue little sister/duaghteru plot arc.
>>48665298Oh. I thought he was saying that Shermie from KoF is actually called Waku in Moon Runes.
>>48664347>[X] [BRING SOMEONE ELSE FROM HYPERDIMENSION (to help Iffy)]>[X] [YOU, ESTELLE, AND ROKKO]Nngh. This IS a ridiculous amount of destruction for such a short amount of time. Looking around you, you've got the itch to start repairs immediately, along with the much more dwarven thought that you can /improve/ this place's defenses. Honestly, you'd feel a lot better with Estelle and Rokko by your side, so there's no way you're gonna leave them behind to help-... hmm. Y'know, hold that thought."Wait! Where do you think you're going?" Iffy demands, narrowing her eyes.Estelle nearly steps forward, her eyes wide. "You're not going straight in without us, are you? Aah, adventurers grow up so fast-"Just stepping out for a minute, you reassure them, stepping through Dutiful Chastity's gaping maw before they can reply. As naturally as entering a normal door, you're right back in a dead-end corridor of your hyperdimensional fortress, Hyperdimension.You stop to take a deep, deep breath of that warm, cozy underground air, feeling every cell in your body relaxing. Goddamn, there really is no place like home-"Ah! Urist! Welcome home!"If not for the great big horned helmet sitting on her head, you wouldn't have recognized Shovel Knight. Still wrapped in bandages and clad in some sort of school uniform, she seems lively enough as she trots toward you. "Well met, friend! I've not had a chance to congratulate you yet."You stare at her, derailed from how you were about to apologize for getting her involved in all this- this fucking hyperdimensional bullshit. Congratulations for what?"Why, for giving birth to a brand new baby, of course!" Shovel laughs, clapping you on the back. "And I see you've even regained your true form. Truly, this is a cause for celebration!"You very nearly choke. N-No, for the love of Armok, that's not-(Cont.)
>>48665361"... is this not a cause for celebration?" Shovel tilts her head, and you can feel the well-meaning confusion. "Forgive me, I'm not yet familiar with the customs of Gamindustri!"Nngh. Well... no, you're pretty happy with Nepgear, she's a good girl, but you're NOT her mother. So just- l-look, save the congratulations for Neptune, okay?"Hah, then I shall wait! But congratulations, in any case."... nnnngh. You scratch your head, pausing when you realize how /frizzy/ it's gotten. Well, you /were/ standing at ground zero of all that electricity, so it's a miracle you haven't died. Anyway- Shovel's doing fine, is she?"But of course!" You can't read her expression through that T-slit helm, but given her voice, Shovel almost seems insulted, and she thumps a fist against her chest. "A mere scratch like that is not nearly enough to keep me down, especially not against such foul beasts as those void-spawned creatures. No need to worry!"... nnnnnnngh. Well, she's... she's in a good mood right now. And probably too stubborn to accept your apologies for being a damn fool and dragging her to Leanbox, where she promptly got blasted over here and nearly waifu'd by void beasts.Besides, you're on something of a timer here, so you get straight to the point."Oh? Clean up, rescue, and assistance?" Surprisingly, THAT gets Shovel Knight's attention. "It would be my honor, Urist! I will go see if anyone is willing to accompany us to-">Horrifying screams come from the darkness below!(Cont.)
>>48665310Are you saying that our DWARFEN AS FUCK duaghteru could not protect herself? Although, it would be for the best to get some guards up and running around there from Hyperdimension. Then we can let the Doomgal out of the Cave to protect Hyperdimension. And so on, and so on.
>>48665376WAIT WAIT WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT."Oh, that message?" Shovel tilts her head again, this time in the other direction. "Yes, it's quite strange! This is the fourth time we've heard it today-">Horrifying screams come from the darkness below!"- fifth time, and Mojang has run off to check on the caves below without really explaining anything," she continues, undaunted. "Is it something to be-">Horrifying screams come from the darkness below!"- worried about?"...GODDAMMIT, DOOMGIRL->Horrifying screams come from the darkness below![TO BE CONTINUED NEXT THREAD!]
>>48665390Doomgirl is having a party with the deamons and all the ammo is invited.
>tfw the last time we saw Doomgirl, DOOM wasn't out yet
>>48665390Just...just ignore it.
>>48665390And that's probably not even her FINAL form!
OKAY, gonna have to wrap it up tonight! Next thread will be on TUESDAY, August 9th, at 8-ish pm EST.As always, updates will go to https://twitter.com/BlorpQuest, and questions can go to ask.fm/BlorpQuest, where I will be cleaning out my backlog of things that need answering.Thanks for participating, guys, and I'll catch you next thread! Hope y'all enjoyed this one.
>>48665356Fair enough. http://hyperdimensionneptunia.wikia.com/wiki/Lady_Wac
>>48665419>>48661966>mfw Blorp answering to my write-in, intended to use all the knowledge accumilated over multiple month to open new possiblilitys for Gameindustri to fuck over Urist, in order to see hillarious results, and the entire questing-crew agreeing to it since it's the most !!FUN!! inducing of all the options, while also supercharging the sharacite-gateway to new levels, possibly powering something connected to it, and generally murking about.Shees, best birthday gift of them all.Thanks mate.I accutally have multiple Images, but hey, This one fits the bills the most.
>>48665419>On TuesdaySo Saturday 3 weeks from now?
>>48665419Thanks for running!
>>48665382>Are you saying that our DWARFEN AS FUCK duaghteru could not protect herself?God no. Nepgear is Urist's duaghter and has shown to be a violent death bringing dwarf in her own right.That being said, her state of unconsciousness doesn't exactly allow her to use her said dwarf violence.
>>48665419Take care, and your time. You might need it.As for me...Sweet embrace of death/sleep...
>>48665398>We find her>She has a chainsaw in one hand and an adamantine sword in the other, demon parts flying everywhere>We start collecting because hey, free demon parts
>>48665428> Her physical appearance is based on Shermie from King of Fighters 97' as they both have bangs covering their eyes and curvy figuresHuh. Guess we're both right in our way. I thought it might be a KoF mash-up.
>>48662926>lizards performing interpretive dance... whenever I go back and check how long ago that was, it makes me feel old. But those were good times, man. Thanks!>>48663642>Gamindustri Goddesses or Boss Bawss...... given Boss Bawss's power set, I'm pretty sure that even if the Gamindustri goddesses win the battle, they'd lose the war somehow.>>48664716Yeah, she got stunned by FNAF.And kicked Urist so hard that Neptune temporarily became the main character.>>48664497>>48664770Fun fact about these two that I've probably mentioned elsewhere:Had Urist chosen to be in Lastation in the very first thread, she would've had Lid as a big sis instead of Estelle, and learned boatloads about traps and stealth and the appreciation of fine asses- although given how MGS has been going lately, it might not have ended well.I was thinking of using the Vocaloid character if Urist had chosen to be in Planeptune, but apparently she's not actually owned by Sega, although her games are, so her inclusion might break or bend my self-imposed rule of "no games based on non-game IPs.">>48665069I'll have to look into those games! (Except for LCS, since that's a little too political to be in this quest).>>48665432Happy birthday, you crazy sunnovabitch!>>48665491GET SOME SLEEP, EUROFRIEND
>>48665419Hope that you have not to rescedule it to sometimes in 2017.>>48665491Somehow I take the title of that picture as an Insult...>>48665432..so many questions: Why is it in Virtual Boy graphics? Where does all the blood come from? Why does it flicker when I scroll around? Why do i find that more adorable than any other emotional response?
>>48665499>And then a necromancer shows up
>>48665541>>48665438DON'T JINX ITDON'T TEMPT FATE
>>48665536Amplitude Studios recently got purchased by SEGA.
>>48665554Why do I need to tempt fate when it already does it without provocation?
>>48665547...I just realized that Urist theoretically can have the ability to make anyone a master necromancer, by spawning a stone tablet.
>>48665612New lag attack, catsplosion + necromancy
>>48665639Which would hit everyone except our target, Urist included.
>>48665390Meh, she's done this plenty of times before, we'll be fine.
Thanks for writing!..See you in a dozen weeks! why
>>48662637Get Rimworld.>>48662644Is Arfoire closer to a living being or a computer software?
>Fakesty yells "GET OVER HERE">no a single Scorpion jokeI know I'm arriving after everything's over, but...
>>48662637>Surprisingly similar to DF
>>48666719Arfoire is closer to a concept. She is piracy.
>>48667076>implying you can't pirate piracy
>>48667076>Piracy will be defeated by a free gameThis quest is deep.
>>48667324Didn't 2 or 3 big torrent sites die in the past 2 weeks?
>>48667076oh god. it's memes all the way down, isn't it.
>>48668465Well, yeah. The neptunia series is based off of the video game industry.http://neptunia.wikia.com/wiki/Arfoire#Etymology
FUCK, the first thread in years and I fucking forget.Damn you TI6
>>48668465yes it is
