You don't actually get to hear whatever it was the not-druid was going to say. Light coalesces around you and your friends, growing brighter by the second, pulsing in time with the distant gate, runes lighting all around it visible even from where you stand. You make to yell at your opponent even as he starts to laugh, the sound somehow carrying over the incessant whine of magic and the sickening sense of reality giving way before the spreading power. "-YOU'RE CHEATING AND YOUR GOD IS CHEATING AND YOU ARE A BUNCH OF CHEATERS!"You reappear in the field- the one in town, with people walking around it and a very suprised looking guard standing at the edge of the wheat.Adventurers about to take their first steps into a different dimension pause, looking at you in a very confused, but familiar sort of way. It's a 'That's a giant spider and it just came out of the dungeon. Do we fight it? Are monsters invading? She's really big. And Angry. maybe we should wait, and see if someone else fights her. That seems safe.'Jin cruises low through the cool air, the sun not quite over the walls of the town, early morning dew glistening on the plants all around you.You wanna kick a few over. >The guard is staring like he wants to say something. >...You got loot, didn't you? You better have gotten loot.>Lighting the fields on fire makes a fire monster? You'll show him a fire monster. There'll be so much fire he won't even know which way is up.>Other(?)

>>48974414>>The guard is staring like he wants to say something.I hope this guardsman if funny tooo
If we end up mixing these two options, one way to go about it would be to hold up a finger to the guard in a "Hold that thought" kind of way, and then rifle through the bags.
Did we ever find out if nin likes wheat and wheat products?What's all everybody's stance on bread and grains?
>>48974414>>The guard is staring like he wants to say something. >>...You got loot, didn't you? You better have gotten loot.
Guards and Loot. Writing!
>>48974544>What's all everybody's stance on bread and grains?Dogs love bread, so I'm going to guess at least of wolf would like it.
>>48974585yeah, that's probably a good guess.Basically, I'm wondering what the sandwich/meat ratio we're working with here is
How many times do you think "waiting until the monster isn't angry" works out for adventurers?
I wonder what kind of loot we got with those rolls last thread.
>>48974675I bet the stupid not-druid stole our gold.
>>48974675Wheat of ultimate grain harvestBowl of infinite porridgecharm of fertile fieldsCalfskin of animal rearing
>>48974663Depends if there's a bard in the party
>>48974698>>48974675oh, and, since it's a fertility god, a LOT of shit we're too young to use.Like, oh man, this shouldn't be in kids hands shit.
>>48974715Soooo moth dust? he gave us more moths ...OH GOD HE GAVE US MORE MOTHS
>>48974726Wedding Dress you say?
>RE:M and Merc 2030 on the same dayYeeeeeeesssssss
quick question, what still left on our todo list? Do we still need to see the dwarves before we see our aunt and the queen be or did we do that already?
>>48974802we need to properly paint the town red, for one.Climb on all the damworks, be on rooves, etcetera.We already saw the dwarves I think, we made them an outdoor forge.I'd like to see our aunt again before we left. I think she's still reading the letter. We might be able to hitch a ride home with her on whatever FANCY merchant shit she has to ride on.
I guess next is the water dungeon? Might have to do it alone since we're the only one who can hold their breath.
>>48974710Teach Nin how to sing and play an instrument, and there ya go; she's practically a bard already.
>>48974820>>48974802oh, and I think the adventurer guild leader still wants us to visit and trade stories.>>48974829I choose no water dungeon
>>48974832She even makes her own roofies
>>48974832Maybe she can singWAIT NO I TAKE IT BACK PLEASE NO
Because there's no such thing as too many spider pics.
>>48974832>>48974849So: enroll her in the Bard's College, and, when she (predictably) gets sent on a quest to recover lost verses to ancient songs, or to find a legendary instrument, we can be her back-up.
>>48974920>lyra will never get a part time job being a barmaid for some side cashExtreme strength and spider silk giving us effectively infinite cash has some downsides.
I would laugh if it turns out that Nin has a horrible singing voice....whereas Lyra sounds divine.
>>48974966we use the powers of book lungs to extend our singing capacity.I think.
>>48974966It's not that far fetched actually nin probably never studied song in here life while Lyra probably was in chorus or a school play some time in her life
>>48975003Given what we remember I doubt Sarah's parents were involved enough for that kind of extracurricular.
>>48974920>Floppy bunny ears on a spiderEw
>>48974802We haven't visited the temples yet? We talked about visiting them to thank the gods for our blessings. Eiryn, the paladin, told us that we might want to keep quiet about it though since people can get a bit odd about blessings.
>>48975137it's part of the novelty costume.Unrelatedly, but man, none of us have ever caught a cold before.It's going to be absolutely devestating when our unimmune young bodies get hit by that shit.Inb4 lyra's body temperature control goes wonky
So much fire even Jin will stop and stare and-"Can I Help you?"You'll admit there might be something of an edge to your tone at the moment, but you feel that given your current state of frustration, it is representative of a serious attempt at politeness.The guard flinches anyway."Er.""I am upset, yes? But not at you.""Arright."He continues to stand awkwardly at attention while you wait, until you cough in the subtle way of a giant spider covered in monsters. Nin has rejoined the Lyra convoy, leaning over your shoulders to watch the guardsman as she arranges a snoring Ezzy around your neck.How does she even do that? You were fighting, what- At most fifteen minutes ago?"You have something to say, yes?""Oh, yeah."You wait again."Are- Are you going to say it? Eventually?""Uh. Right. Right! The uh. The guild- Guild something. Guild guy. He wants... Uh.""This can wait, yes.""You've got six eyes.""Thank you, I got them from my mother."You root through your bags as your erstwhile messenger stands and attempts to formulate something approaching a parrot's level of conversational ability.You were promised loot, and so help you, if it wasn't delivered-The first thing you find is a modest pile of coinage, all gold, and all from a mix of cultures and time periods and regions. Not even one of them match. The second thing you find is a golden piece of wheat. You'd consider it to be irony, or maybe a subtle attempt at a joke- A play on the dungeon's name, maybe. But you've decided that gods have neither subtlety or any sense of humour, so you glare at the offending plant shaped mineral before your tuck it away in your bag. The last two are a bit less ire-drawing, and fall conveniently into the 'mysterious magical items' category, neatly relieving you of your building rage. If a GOD somehow managed to gyp you of loot so hard that he made a wizard look good, you'd-
>>48975204You're not sure, actually. What would you do to get some form of vaguely karmic and entirely petty revenge on divinity?Burn bread everywhere you find it?Find a farm and weave a huge spider web with a message over the pigpen? Wheat Sucks, maybe?It's a question you can ponder over an entire animal later, you think.One of the items in question is a woven crown of flowers, still fresh, and likely to remain that way. You can sense the feeling of magic flowing through the fragile seeming article, and you put it into the bag carefully, heedless of the pleading looks from moths. And the last, you recognize. The oddly beaten sickle the old man wielded against you in the boss fight, dully gleaming, catching what little light there is. That's something, you're sure.Exactly what, you'll find out. You turn your attention back to the guardsman."Are you ready to talk, yes?""The guild secretary sent word you were in the dungeon and people were posted so we could send you to the guild when you came out end.""End?""No. Yes.""I will go and speak with her, yes.">Just, not right now. First, food.>There's time. And the guild can probably tell you what you've earned.>Is that everything, then?>Other(?)
>>48975137Looking at her hairstyle just made me wonder: how do our siblings + Mom keep their hair? Do any of them have different hair colors, besides Sarah?Strange question, but I like having a solid image in my head.
>>48975148We should just visit each one casually and see if anyone notices how many we're going to.
>>48975225>>There's time. And the guild can probably tell you what you've earned.
>>48975225>>Is that everything, then?You're not forgetting any MORE message, right?
>>48975225>There's time. And the guild can probably tell you what you've earned.>Is that everything, then?
>>48975227Well I know Nin braids our hair intermittently, but other than that I don't know what the other spiders do with their hair.
>>48975225>There's time. And the guild can probably tell you what you've earned.Afterwards we must go remove all the bears from the nearest forest. And the next nearest forest.Also>magic sickle get...do I spy the head for our new polearm?
>>48975225>>There's time. And the guild can probably tell you what you've earned.>>Is that everything, then?
>>48975292I should have specified that it was more of a question for REQM
>>48975225>>There's time. And the guild can probably tell you what you've earned.>>Is that everything, then?Yes we got the sickle...now how do we turn it into a full on War Scythe?
>>48975225>Is that everything, then?
>>48975225>There's time. And the guild can probably tell you what you've earned.
I'm going to guess that the Sickle doesn't have an ice enchant on it...
>>48975402I'm going to guess it is useful mostly for agriculture
>>48975346But war scythes are improvised shiiiiiiiitBetter to make it a billhook or chicken sickle
>>48975225>>There's time. And the guild can probably tell you what you've earned.We can eat while she talks to us! We're a multi-thread spider.
Guilds and a question that will probably be answered within a week. Maybe. Writing!
>>48975225> Other (consider carving 'Lyra was here' into the fence gate post thing near the entrance to the dungeon. Or asking if doing so is considered vandalism or just heresy)
>>48975455Lyra was here is mandatory at all locations of interest
>>48975455We could turn the archway or whatever it is into a bunch of little spiders giving the portal the middle finger.
So how long until Mom appears to stranglehug us for evolving again?
>>48975505I dunno, we haven't gauged her pace.She's a fast one though.
>>48975505I think the crown bit is going to be the worse part.Just hope she catches us in elven homeland while we are talking to bee princesses.Seeing old mom get called the queen mother would be hillarious.
>>48975532Her pace is that she will show up right we LEAST want her to. So if not here then at the elflands while talking to Erics side of the family there.
>>48975536>Seeing old mom get called the queen mother would be hillarious.>Lyra:"NOW YOU KNOW MY PAAAAAIN!"
>>48975554That would mean mom and dad with us at the same time.Would lead to some interesting conversations.
>>48975561>>48975536inb4 mom is the queen we are the princess
>>48975227Mom trims hers to keep it in check, but it's still fairly long. It's black. Sara's was long, and is now less so due to explosive experimentation. It's almost black-blue.Aria's is black, and she's torn between keeping it short to be different from you, and keeping it long to be like mom. It is a mess.Ephrem and Zach's is black, and usually short and messily self cut. They had a competition to see whose was longer, which ended when they both got stuck in a bush.Elle's has turned a very pale blonde. She is a colourful spider. It's long, and usually tied back so she can work. Lyra's is long, black, and whatever style her passengers happen to feel like at the moment.
>>48975674>elle got a new hair color toosweet!How long until aria discovers hair dyes?
>>48975674If Aria doesn't decide, she's going to end up sporting a side-cut.
>>48975674>Elle's has turned a very pale blonde. She is a colourful spider. It's long, and usually tied back so she can work.>Blumenkranz intensifieshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRivqBxbHRs
>>48975729So your saying our sister is going to be a spider skrillex knock off?
>>48975734Elle is just busily terrorizing the starter village.
>>48975847I doubt spider forest is a starting zone. More like a open world raid area.
Posting relevant link.www.spiderzrule.com/spiderweb.htm
>>48975910well, we are approaching raid boss.But still, elle is busy there.
>>48975948Links busted.>>48975847You mean Oakring?
>>48976001We were a low level raid boss. Then we evolved and got a skull on our butt. Now we are a raid boss that requires high end parties to take down if they get us angry. We will be on the godly difficult raid boss list by the time we evolve next.
>>48976036>then we evolved and got a skull on our buttSo the standard arachne is a low-level raid boss?
>>48976090Looking at mom, yes.
>>48976090pretty much. Any competent one at least.
>>48976090The problem is that arachne live in packs and unless you nuke them all instantly they can call all the other one in the forest.
>>48976149not really packs. They are actually pretty spread out unless they are direct family. And even then, the younglings will eventually leave the nest and get their own territory
She literally faced a raid of wolves and won, so, I'd say that her boss status has been cemented. Well, at least in Oakring.
"Is that... everything?""uh. The duke! He wants to see you before you leave.""Before I leave the dungeon?""Before you leave town. Please."You can probably do that. If you feel like it. But for now- You'll go to the guild. Because unidentified magical loot is all but burning a hole in your pocket, and you finished a dungeon and-You finished a dungeon.You are an adventurer with a party and you have gone on an actual literal dungeon run. You beat a boss and got loot. Magical loot. It strikes you somewhere between the dungeon and the guild, and Nin is looking in a sort of worried way because you're laughing and smiling proabbly a little too hard. You drag her off your back for a hug as she squeals, and you toss her and catch a few times before she's laughing as well. It's... odd, right?Maybe a half hour ago, it seemed sort of mundane. It is sort of mundane. Adventurer is just a job here, right? And dungeons are around. And you're a giant spider person, and Dads an elf, your sister is a mage and your Mom is an adventurerknown all over-But you beat a dungeon. A dungeon!So you grin with the sort of manic energy of a child whose dreams have come true, and march your way to the guild with the tingling sensation of adrenaline and whatever the brain's happy drug is. You even manage to greet the secretary without giggling, an achievement if you've ever seen one. "Hello Ren!"The secretary/terror watches you with some suspicion. "Why are you looking at me like that, yes?""Why are you smiling like that?""Because I am happy? I am allowed to be happy.""I had seven reports of screaming death spiders in the portal field.""....I am not a death spider, yes.""Of course, my mistake. Giant spider woman with giant skull and fire.""It was only a bit of swearing. And how did that get here before I did?""Talent, probably."You shake your head as Nin giggles.
>>48976149Arachne tend to be solitary, if only due to needing to stay out of each other's hunting grounds for fear of accidentally extincting the prey species.Plus clutches are usually 2-3 babes last I checked, I know REQM said having 6 was unusual.
>>48976207You kind of forgot that you were still holding her. You put the moth down and shoo her to the side as you continue the conversation."So.""So.""You wanted to speak with me, yes?""Well, yes. At your earliest convenience. Are you good to go right out of the dungeon?""I will be fine, yes. The rest of them sleep on me, anyways.">First, can you look at my loot?>So, what is it you wanted?>Can we eat while we talk?>Other(?)
>>48976221>>So, what is it you wanted
>>48976221>First, can you look at my loot?>Can we eat while we talk?
>>48976221>Can we eat while we talk?Best of both world, we can talk loot later,
>>48976221>>First, can you look at my loot?>>So, what is it you wanted?
>>48976171ah, but remember: not many spiders succumb to wanderlust; most of them stay in their nest, and live in the forest. When they move, it isn't far, I would guess, from the original nest.They mostly only care for food and sleep.They're pretty much Hobbits.
>>48976221>>Can we eat while we talk?This is a trap option for her. out of house and home.
>>48976308their nests are fairly spread out. It's the consequences of a very large appetite. They'd run out of things to hunt if they stayed too close together.
>>48976221>So, what is it you wanted?The answer to "can we eat and talk" is definitely no, at least in Lyra's case.
>>48976308They're the carnivorous version of hobbit life.I wonder how cozy spider homes usually are.The "no roof" thing bothers me.
>>48975455We need to do that to every dungeon we find, just so that Aria knows she'll never catch us
>>48976356>no roofGiven how dense the treetops are, they probably don't havd to worry much.And if it gets too heavy they can just crawl on the underside.
All of the options?Writing
>>48976356pretty sure they had a webbing canopy of some sort.
>>48976428>>48976405I hope those are dense canopies/treesbecause getting wet is uncomfy
>>48976369I feel like it will help some assassin creed motherfucker decades from now find all the good spots
Hmm too quiet...post more spiders?
>>48977186If you like.I'm just wondering how much chaos we can cause in this city without going overboard into being actual criminals.And what the chances of running into aria here are.
>>48975674>>48977186Don't have too many with dark hair that are work safe.
>>48977186This can be arranged.
"Alright then.""so, this way-""I have loot, yes.""Okay.""Also, can we eat while we talk?"Ren stops and stares at you for a moment."You're paying for your own food.""That is fair."You follow her to the to a table in a corner- mildly quieter due to two directions being closed off, but still rowdy. It is the guild, after all. At the table, a single halfling is sitting, nursing something that smells incredibly alcoholic. You are fairly certain you could use it for stripping paint. Cleaning wounds, at the bare minimum."Hello, yes."He raises his glass in something approximating a salute. Ren frowns. You interrupt before she gets started. "And this is?""This is the guild master. For this particular location.""Okay.""Who shouldn't be drinking.""I am an adult, Ren.""It isn't even noon. Stop drinking as soon as you wake up, please.""Technically, I didn't even sleep.""Technically?""Mighta passed out at one point, but I don't remember.""You are not helping your case.""Yeah, that's fine." He waves you to sit, which you do, albeit awkwardly. "So we finally meet, miss spider.""Lyra, yes.""Sure. And I am... Dan.""...Why would you hesitate when introducing yourself?""It's short for Dantheriansaus.""What?""He's lying.""It's a proper halfling name. Strong and honourable.""Are those halfling traits?""Of course. We have a proud history.""The last halfling I met was named Cake.""Another traditional name!""Did you get drunk in the time it took me to get her here?""No. Of course not. I'm just having a bit of fun!""Have a bit of business instead. I'm off to man the front."
>>48977285He looks back at you with a smile."She's a genuine sweetheart. So, how're you today?""I am finished with my dungeon. I was only a little disappointed, yes.""And why's that?"You sigh."Gods cheat."He nods sagely."It's true. A bunch of more miserly bastards you'll never find.""Well, there is loot.""That's good."You fold your arms over your chest as he finishes his mug. "So what is it that you wanted to see me for?""Well," He starts.Ren is back again, this time helping ferry huge swathes of food to the table, which you eagerly start into."Originally I was just gonna leave well enough alone, right? You don't poke the bear.""I eat bears." You manage around a mouthfull of something dead and delicious."Smaller, less armoured people don't poke bears," He amends."Anyway, The important thing is that you've managed to become vaguely known in short order, and I make it my business to find out who and why things spread in the city.""I do not think I will be here much longer, yes.""And I'm sure hunters are already weeping. You're Nialla's kid, right?"You nod. "You know my mother?""She punched me once. I wanted to know where spiders kept the lady bits. Coincidentally-"Ren all but materializes, mercilessly bringing a platter down on the guildmaster's head."She's a child, you ass."He massages his head."The mystery remains unsolved. So. We've transferred you a fair rate for the training. And the baths. The baths are great, by the way. Love the spider motif.""I did not think anyone noticed, yes."He shrugs, snagging a particularly choice piece of pork you were aiming for, and you glower down at him.Somewhere in the mess of conversation and eatig your friends roused themselves enough to gorge at the, and the waitresses seem hard pressed to keep up."It's my job to notice things. So I notice everything."
>>48977303"Like how you've got half the forest on your back, and a crown and apparently your mother's sense of adventure. A lot of people are going to notice you, I think."You shrug."I am not a Queen, yes.""So I've heard. I don't think that's going to convince too many people, though.""People are stupid.""Well, I can't deny that. Anyhow- As a small piece of business, I've heard you're away to the isles."You nod around a face full of something delicious. Probably beef. The gravy is a bit much, but it's very tender."I am visiting family in the elflands, yes.""If you don't mind, we'll pass you some mail for the guilds on the way in.""Do you not send it by boat?""It's mostly mail for you, in a way.""Warnings?""...Advice, let's say."You sigh. "Can you identify my loot?""Where's this coming from?""I am tired of the conversation, and I an excited about loot.""Okay.""So, can you?""Probably. Where's it from?""Hate and Gold and stupid druids, yes.""Right."You pull your stash free from the bag, clearing space on the table amidst the carnage of knawed bones and empty plates.>You don't seem like much of a guild master, yes.>So, is Ren secretly a shark? Or a dragon. I would believe a dragon.>You know the druid, don't you. >Other (?)
>>48976221>>First, can you look at my loot?>>Can we eat while we talk?fuck manners, we aint royalty....just don't listen to Nin, she lies.
>>48977319>>So, is Ren secretly a shark? Or a dragon. I would believe a dragon.>>You know the druid, don't you.
>>48977319>So, is Ren secretly a shark? Or a dragon. I would believe a dragon.>You know the druid, don't you.
>>48977339Pretty much all i want to say so backing
>>48977319>>So, is Ren secretly a shark? Or a dragon. I would believe a dragon.
>>48977303Where spiders keep the lady bits is a trade secret.Only available to those who are short enough to peek up our tabard or have the advantage of a stiff breeze.which halflings might.
>>48977319>You don't seem like much of a guild master, yes.>So, is Ren secretly a shark? Or a dragon. I would believe a dragon.
>>48977319>So, is Ren secretly a shark? Or a dragon. I would believe a dragon.>>You know the druid, don't you.
>>48977319>>You know the druid, don't you.
>>48977303>"I eat bears."I still have it on good authority that bears are fricking delicious. It kinda depends what it's been eating but given most bears, black bears in specific, tend to eat lots of fruit and berries and grasses, they're quite good
>>48977319>You know the druid, don't you.
>>48977319>You know the druid, don't you.> is anything in the mail urgent?
>>48977450It that whole issue with predator meat being heavy in metals and such so bears that eat mostly berries and such taste more like Prey animals but more marbled, shits delicious
Ren's secrets and a druid!Writing!>>48977450I wouldn't know, to be honest. No hunters in the family.
>>48977400also I guess anyone who goes to the bath with lyra, which is like half the population of the city at any given time.Hm.>>48977450lyra is really building up a lot of eats-only-carnivores trace chemicals. Probably not good for her.
>>48977540Only the female half.
>>48977643well, yeah. That's why it's half the city.Inb4 halfling hires a female adventurer to get THE INFO on us.
>>48977662I think you miss interpreted what he mentioned when he said that
>>48977729True, it could ruin the majesty of the hunt to hire infiltrators.Depends on how he likes to go about it.
I've been meaning to ask, and there isn't a better time now that it just got brought up. Where is the spider poon located?
>>48977828Same place as a normal human female.
>>48977828On the elf bits.There's a secondary hole where eggs come out.We cover the elf bit hole. The second one we do not and probably should.
>>48977847Eh, it never gets used unless we get preggers.
>>48977858true, but still, it's the principle of the matter.Oh well! Nobody's noticed yet.
>>48977847>The second one we do not and probably should.Why? Not even arachne find it cover-worthy, and literally no one else would have a frame of reference making them consider it that either.
>>48977933Man I just said it's a matter of principle like a minute ago.
"So," You start amicably as he picks up the first piece of your loot, looking it over."What is Ren's secret, yes?""Ren's secret?""Is she a shark?""A what?""They live in the ocean? Sharp teeth, and a fin on their back.""Never seen one.""You never been to the ocean?""Boats don't agree with me.""I see."You pause a moment to think."What about a dragon, then?""A dragon.""Yes. Is she secretly a dragon? I would believe it."He shakes his head."I'm afraid she's one hundered percent human. No monster bits at all.""Oh.""Just oh?"You nod."I am a little bit disappointed, yes? I thought there would be some grand secret.""Sorry, she's a bit boring.""Mm. On the other hand, being just a human makes her a bit scarier, I think.""You're scared of a human?""She smiles like... something not human. With a scary smile.""Alright.""In any case- This here is ring of flowers filled with spirits of nature and plants and the like.""What does it do?""Enhances healing, mostly. Smells lovely and looks beautiful as side effects."You nod along, turning it over in your hands."And this is- We'll buy this.""Eh?"He waves the golden sheaf of wheat across the table."This one's a wand, of sorts? It makes plants healthier, harvests better, keeps pests and plagues at bay.""Important for farmers then.""And less so for spiders, I'd think."You tap fingers across the table."I do not think I will find much use for it, yes.""Righto. I'll have Ren settle it after, with the dinner bill.""Yes, yes.""And this one is... Huh.""What is huh?""This doesn't really coeout of the dungeon, you know."You blink."You know him, don't you?""Who would that be?""The druid, yes. Or whatever he is. The cleric, the old man in the dungeon.""Well, everyone knows him. Sort of. He's been around for a long time.""But you know more don't you?""Why would think that?""Because it is your job to know things, yes."
>>48978108"... I did say that, didn't I?""Yes.""Oh well. I don't know much about him.""You're lying.""He's lying.""Ren, that's very rude to say to your employer.""Fire me then. Jack could do my job no doubt.""The guild would fall apart in a day.""Guess you're stuck with me, then.""Ren, what does this do?""No idea, sorry. It's the old guy's scythe thing.""Yes.""Definitely magic, then.""What kind, though?""God junk, maybe? Or just something old. Sorry.""Mmm.""I'll just have to hit someone with it, yes.""Probably. You can take it to a shop and have someone look at it with magic, too.""Is there one you can recommend?""I'll make a list.""Thank you, yes.""Weren't you busy at the front?""I had a feeling people were talking about me.""Hah! She thought your were a sherk. Or a dragon.""Oh?""You have a very intimidating smile, yes.""I told her that you're far to frightening to be a dragon."She nods. "Well, come up front with me, and I'll get you that list.""You can get me another drink, while you're at it.""I'll get you the bill. Don't worry kid, it's on him today.""Huh?""Six platters, twelve cups of juice, one dire boar, one-""Hey!""About a weeks wages, I'd guess. You best get back to your desk.""Ren! Oi, REN! WAIT!"
>>48978108>"Is she a shark?">"A what?">"They live in the ocean? Sharp teeth, and a fin on their back.">"Never seen one.">"You never been to the ocean?"Lyra.... Neither have you. You should seriously consider being more tight lipped with your cover story. Some day SOMEONE will wonder how YOU know what a shark is.
>>48978127I'll be ending it here tonight!Thanks for playing!Questions and the like answered in thread for a while!
>>48978170Thanks for running man, OUT OF THE DUNGEON WOOOOOOOOOO On to the Elflands
>>48978170Thanks REQM.Can the flower crown be set on fire by our fire crown?
>>48978170Thanks for the run! So...we're gonna give the moth the ring of flowers to wear as a crown/headband?
thank you ReQM
>>48978180>>48978183Thanks for playing!And I suppose it could, though I'd question the wisdom of putting a healing flower crown on a fire spider.>>48978140A heinous metagamer.
>>48978140At this point, like the druid, they would probably chalk it up to a really weird-ass imagination.
>>48978170Thanks for running, REQM. As for questions:> Is the flower crown fire proof? Does it just make a person heal naturally faster? Would it make Nin's healing powder work better?> Also, what are your thoughts on the new RE: quest that popped up in the archive, the one with the skeleton?
>>48978170What about this loot?>There's also a spectral gauntlet, it's outline glowing dimly, each corner lit by a point of light. You have no idea what it does. from thread 132. We got the wheat at the same time
>>48978170Thanks for running!Did we really drink twelve cups of juice?Is that what lyra likes to drink? Juice?Have we ever checked if the rooves around here support our weight, as a side note?>>48978180Freedom! Now to bother people, our true calling!
>>48978210Can the crown be worn a different way? Like a necklace, or a belt?
>>48978170Thanks for running.
>>48978140I really hope some day someone will notice Lyra is constantly referencing things she couldn't possibly know about first hand. >>48978170Thanks for running you glorious spider you.
>>48978180B-But I want to forge things...Seriously, Lyra and our crew new equipment upgrades all over.
>>48978180We still have the other dungeon to trek...the water dungeon!
>>48978296noooo no no noIf i know anything about dungeonsIt's the water dungeon SUCKS>>48978272Forging, eh?I'm not sure what even to make other than trying to make our spear more brittle so it doesn't bend so much.
>>48978318>I'm not sure what even to make other than trying to make our spear more brittle so it doesn't bend so much.Something to keep our wolf from getting KO'd so often?
>>48978338so, like... a helmet?we should also get her some arm and leg coverings, given her repeated breaking of arms and legs.
>>48978338We've talked this over many, many times over the course of this quest, but Shez could really use some form of light armor. She's completely unprotected as is.
>>48978318>I'm not sure what even to make other than trying to make our spear more brittle so it doesn't bend so much.Weapon upgrades primarily, Jins claws, sheszkas gauntlets, maybe some armor if we can find something light for Jin, Nin and Ezzy. A new weapon for Nin, optimally a rapier with some elemental stone so she can use it at range too
>>48978202>>48978203>>48978215>>48978231Thanks for playing!>>48978215It provides a minor boost to regeneration, and a sizable one to healing others. Fire proof, not really.I haven't seen skeleton quest. I'll have to take a look at some point.>>48978225I Forgot!It's a magical gauntlet with the ability of minor telekinesis. Though only in the form of a hand.>>48978231Everyone was eating together!And Lyra is a fan of just about anything cool and complimentary to whatever she's eating. You have yet to attempt roofwalking.
>>48978394>It's a magical gauntlet with the ability of minor telekinesis.I have the feeling this will make a tiny snek very happy.
>>48978248I suppose. >>48978250>>48978252Thanks for playing!
>>48978394we need to try roofwalking, it is essential to the plan.>minor telekinesisOkay, we need to get a sharing plan for us and our friends to play with this shit.It's literally a toy that everyone wants.One day it's ours, one day nins, one day not jins because she can't wear it, one day shezkas, one day not ezzys because it's too big, one day ours...
>>48978433How exactly will she wear it?
>>48978372And yet we've never asked anybody for stuff that keeps our wolf from breaking.We should ask the guild if they can recommend somebody for this type of equipment.
>>48978453Over her hand? I doubt it needs to fit perfectly to be used, and hey its magic, maybe it adjusts.She has a better chance of wearing it than Lyra with her claw hands.
>>48978457We can make it ourselves, we have literally a Blessing by the God of the Fo4ge, undergone training with dwarven smiths for magical materials and are in the middle of a major market city, why the hell do we even have smithing if we don't use it now?
>>48978482Anon, she is small enough to wrap around our neck, she could probably fit most of her body in the gauntlet.
>>48978453As a body glove?
>>48978511I don't see how that prevents her from using it? Again, it doesn't matter, she can just shoveas much if her arm in as she can and use it.Not like anyine else has use for it, except maybe Nin.
>>48978511>>48978523>You are now imagining ezzy in the glove, using her arms to move fingers and cackling as she grabs things.
>>48978506It's enchantment that is the problem, not forging.
>>48978506>why the hell do we even have smithing if we don't use it now?Because if it didn't show up on the stat sheet the people who had voted for the smithing evolution would have crashed the quest with no survivors?
>>48978534EVERYONE has a use for it.I can't think of a more fun toy we've gotten in our entire travels.
>>48978578I mean, the water shield is a distant second.
>>48978578Jin can't wear it, Lyra can't wear it without risking to tear it with her knife fingers, Sheszka can't for similar reasons. I wouldn't even know what for they'd use it. So nah, its a fun toy maybe, but 'useful' its only to two people. Well and Jin if we can find a way for her to use it.>>48978548We did get smithing and forge association to our evolution before that already.
>>48978127I'm a bit disappointed we didn't get one of those magic jewels from the dungeon. The ability to create bread out of thin air would have been useful.
>>48978637>I wouldn't even know what for they'd use it.Long.Distance. Headpats.
>>48978637>can't wear itHow do you know? It's magic, so maybe it adapts to the wielder.
>>48978644It would have been useful in other parties.As it stands, only nin and like, maybe shezka would like that.NOTHING FOR NIN
>>48978644You say that like Lyra'd ever use it.
>>48978660In which case Ezzy can wear it too, and the point remains most have nothing to use it for.
>>48978664>As it stands, only nin and like, maybe shezka would like that.We don't know until we try. Next thread we'll have to sample some bread.
>>48978170Thanks for running, glad to have you back
>>48978664>inb4 Nin secretly uses the glove to play with Lyra's ears from a distance.
>>48978693We can only hope everyone forgets about our SECRET EAR WEAKNESS.>>48978681I am 100% behind any "try some food" time we spend.especially fresh bread, which is fucking delicious.We should really get some cricket loaf if bread doesn't work. I bet we'd be all over that shit.
Thanks for running
>>48978681Lyra already said before that not-meat things don't really do anything for her anymore, and has been outright against eating any plant products, plant diet doesn't seem to agree with arachne palate.
>>48978755As I recall it, she liked candy and non-meats, they just weren't as good as before.
>>48978827She was meh on the candy, that wss actually when she noticed non-meat things aren't really for her anymore. And the only not-meat things she eats are the spices she uses for meat.
>>48978874and juice apparently.more testing required.
>>48978827Only not meat Lyra has consumed in, ages don't even remember how long, probably since trying the candy sticks, has been drinks.Arachne seem clearly carnivores and not omnivores
>>48978919We were talking about eating, her love for fizzy drinks is well known.
>>48978728>We can only hope everyone forgets about our SECRET EAR WEAKNESS.Nin and maybe Jin are luckily the only ones who could know about it, and at least with Jin our secret is safe.
>>48978921Have we tried eggs? Or was that a no-no in a village full of Harpies?
>>48979034Inb4 jin spreads ear weakness like everything else
