You aren't one of those no life snailposters are you anon?You're not wasting precious paper and ink from your monastery just to draw snails over and over again, are you?
Is this the origin of shitposting?
Ok /tg/, let's make a setting based on the manuscript margins.
>>62531125>Scripts and SnailsI can dig it
>>62531125You aren't truly considered a knight until you've successful completed your first snail hunt. A time honored and joyous coming of age tradition within the kingdom.
But who will slay the tuck-in bird?
>>62531158You aren't truly considered a good boy until you've successfully murdered you're mount's brother. A time honored and joyous coming of age tradition within the kingdom.
>>62531158The dire snail is a rare but fearsome beast, inhabiting only the most dangerous of swamps, damp caves, and dark dank placesAside from being hard to kill it's meat is used in the ceremony after the hunt, and it's shells are used to be made into instruments
Is this the fate of those knights who fail in their first hunt?
>>62531227Honestly I think the idea of the snail hunt being more akin to clubbing baby seals, but being taken twice as seriously, more fitting to the weird nature of the manuscripts than the snails actually being any sort of threat.>>62531220Okay. I get I lack a lot of context from my modern perspective, but what in the actual literal fuck is this.
>>62531258Good pointAlso, these were basically the middle age equivalent of the monks working for hours doing nothing but writing, then basically drawing joke images afterwards in their downtime
>>62531258>more akin to clubbing baby sealsI concur with this anon as it will make the casualty rates embarrassingly high ( if only 1-2%).Maybe the peasants are fearful of the snails though, and the knights can make themselves look impressive (without putting themselves in any real danger) by clearing them.
>>62531258It's an allegory for penis envy. That's why the man snail looks like Freud. The dog is most likely female
>>62531328Well put sire
>>62531220I mean lets be real. The rabbits probably deserve everything they're getting.
>>62531337>Only by slaying a snail and proving your metaphorical manhood, are you then allowed to claim it in the more literal sense.
>>62531343What if the snails are harmless beasts that all the peasants are fearful of and the rabbits are the real threat - ignored by the knights out of fear.
It's literally just bored monks doodling in the margins of their notebooks. It's like I'm back in school.
>>62531337go harvest a tree of dicks is pretty funky sounding.
>>62531343Well, rabbits are obviously a major race in this setting. Seem fairly savage, but are probably smarter than they look based on all those fancy weapons
>>62531373Yeah the first time you're told about it but when you live in Rooksildoom and it's your staple food, the joke goes a little stale.
>>62531365>the rabbits are the real threat - ignored by the knights out of fear.Clearly whatever is happening there is between the rabbits and the dogs.
>>62531395Are dog's still man's best friend, helping humanity every way they can?full image
>>62531417Which makes it all the more sad they're so unappreciated...
>>62531417The dogs are a race created specifically as a plague upon the rabbits, as punishment for their rebellion against God.
>>62531417>>62531395you know now I'm starting to wonder if the Monty Python shit with the killer rabbit was based off of an exaggerated monuscript depiction
>>62531343They speak of the rabbit folk and their vile trickster god. Whose name governs all manner of insect. I pray of thee, myson, that you never hear his blasphemous utterances. what's up doc?
>>62531438>Violin music stops
Legends are still told about Saint Ivan the failed knight who led the charge against King Rabbito and turned the tide of battle.
>>62530908>vox watermark>>62531090No, that's the Pompeii graffiti
>>62531482As the rumour goes as reward for his valiant deed he was refashioned by god himself.
be honest, would you chose this as your familiar?
>>62531548Further adding to the shame of the failed knights, are the unsubstantiated rumors that their lowly forms are the result of more.. scandalous failings.
>>62531438They are quite well known for their musical ability, at the very least.
>>62531569The snails developed a defensive mechanism that allows them to spray toxic pheromones at the knights. For most this is harmless... but the weak willed among their number? They become infatuated with the snail kind and run off with one, eschewing all clothing, until eventually they may bond into one beautiful being.
>>62531337Du Hexen Hase
>>62531383>Seem fairly savage, but are probably smarter than they look based on all those fancy weaponsThe rabbits have gained this power by making covenant with the devil after their expulsion from heaven.
At least we know this world has public transportation, even if your fellow passengers can get a little unruly at times.
>>62531393You Rooksildoom folk sure are a strange breed.
>>62531801Those cocklefruits grown by the plant are suitable enough... but those that are truly 'homegrown' are absolutely delectable. As such at each feast the king orders one to be plucked. To be chosen for such a task is of the highest honour.
Oh my god I can post, Im alive!
>>62531866This one's escaped the snail pit Get'm boys!
>>62531859Yes, Rooksildoom is quite famous for it's elaborate feasting and festivities. Although personally I don't see why you can't just entertain yourselves hunting snails like the rest of us good honest folk.
>What have you been up to Margaret?>Oh you know, same 'ol - inflating my husband as per usual.
>>62531619They're not the only ones' who've developed in build gas attacks though.
>>62532028>the guys face>"Surely there's more to life than this."
>>62532055I love how the beast actually looks embarrassed
>>62532028I know that face. That's hemorrhoid face.
>>62531157>>62531125>"So you manage to track down a rabbit">"finally some dinner, I take aim with my bow">"it spots you and grabs its sword and shield"
>>62531439But then upon them did Satan curse. One amongst their number a traitor was to become.Man's efforts against the foe he did reverse.
>>62532081Well it should be.It is not a r*bbit after all
I'm just here for the pictures.
These barbaric bunnies think they can gain god's favour? Pathetic.
>>62532272>"My ancestors are smiling at me, Imperial. Can you say the same?"
>>62532463I love you you can see the knights on the outside making fun of him too
>>62532028Clearly that poor man drowned and is receiving appropriate medical attention! How dare you question the methods of the kings court doctor!
>>62531125You know not what you ask.

>>62531439Wasn't there just straight up a dog-headed saint at some point?
>>62532502I'd love to think that's just like a common treatment he prescribes.>Ok what've we got here>Oh me husbands a bit crook is all, coughin and sneezin all over the place>Yes yes I think I've see this before>Well is there anythings you can do about it?>Of course! I'd suggest giving him one of these roots before each meal, twice daily shove this up his arse and pump like crazy...>Hold on, what!>...and make sure he gets plenty of rest. Hmm did you say something?>Uhhh... for how long exactly?>Do you question me woman?!>No herr doctor!>Good then you'll get the bill on the way out. Have a good day!
>>62532551Yep. St. Christopher. Apparently he was a member of an entire race of people who had dog heads.
>>62532463>Fuck you guys, Im the apple knight!
Looking forward to when the Skull and Crown 'Killer Rabbits' minis get released, pretty sure they made all their stretch goals.>>62531679This little fellow was one of them
>>62532589I'd play an Apple KnightGonna be pure [LAUGHTER STOPS] once they glance at him and see the branch at the end of his skill tree reads 'Secrets of Eden'

>>62532472This has always been my favorite. The guy is one laughing peasant away from just throwing his sword away and fucking off.
What system would you say best to run this surreal land of satanic murder-rabbits, and snail hunting knights in?
>>62532472>It lines up almost perfectly
>>62532624>>62532472What is the story of this poor knight and his quest to put down the mentally deficient dragons?
>>62531343Is this loss?
>>62531343Little do most people know that the rabbit is the true arch enemy of Germans throughout history
>>62536246Fuck, I remember this shit... a little bit. What a blast from the past.
This thread is amazing and I want you all to know I have been chuckling happily all throughout it, so thanks guys.
>>62536246>>62536259>>62536272Bugs has had ENOUGH.
>>62536246>Eh what's up doc?
>>62536348this has been good thread
Wasn't all this basically because monks also did a bunch of gardening, and thus fucking hated those bastard snails eating their cabbage and rabbits digging up their turnips, so they doodled little fights between the monks as knights and the snails. Also dogs going after the rabbits and it became a monk meme.
>>62537188>Also dogs going after the rabbits and it became a monk meme.Yeah I think that part was meant to be ironic and funny.Instead of the humans hunting the rabbits, it's the rabbits going after the humans. It's simple, but amusing.
>>62532572And he was a warrior of god and a former cannibal.Now I want to try and get into people's super serious historical games and play as a dog man cleric.
>>62531440Inmean, flying circus liked to animate weird illustrations like these right? Or was that just in Holy Grail?
>>62538039True, they did have animated sections in the medieval manuscript artstyleIt would also explain some of the other weird designs like God or the one monster that gets killed when the animator has a heart attack, they both look like something out the back pages of a manuscript
>>62537992>And he was a warrior of god and a former cannibalWho rolled with Satan until he saw him flinch at the sight of a cross. And who took the advice of the person who baptized him literally, becoming a doggo-man ferry across a river.
>>62536246>>62536259>>62536272Fucking hell, I'm getting some flashbacks here.
>>62531542>1011>not putting your snail shells on ice
>>62538106This only sounds more and more like the kind of campaign I'd like to play.>Apple Knight, loves apples, is a knight>St Chris, Satanic cultist turned Christian warrior cleric, is also a dog person who can turn into a boat>Rooksildoom man, no sense of right or wrong, comes from land of cock trees and casual genital mutilation>They must all help the dog empire fight off the rabbits who have been hunting down humans and dogs alike>On their quest they must survive deadly snail attacks, snails which they eventually tame and ride into battle
