Previous thread >>133463RECAPYou are Natalya Ilyushina, a non-Girtablilu scorpiongirl. Setting is the USSR during the start of WW2 where everyone is a monster girl. You were fired from your job as a mercenary after killing your comrades in a botched mission. After wasting your days away in a pub, you decide to do some freelancing, taking odd jobs that people post on the town board. You have befriended a hellhound named Eva, you dislocated her elbows and killed her friend. She doesn't seem to hold it against you. You have also informally adopted an elf-child named Katya, you found her in a house near an abandoned munitions factory where you discovered a massacre. Bodies in piles, being loaded onto a truck my a centaur. You suspect that the meat being fed to the homeless community comes from this source but you aren't so sure anymore. You spent some time with Katya and Eva in camp, waiting to guard the missiles. Having been accused of being a leech on the camp, you fight for your right to be in camp, winning the fight, and earning your stay. Eva rejects your advances on her as you leave for the town hall to commence your job guarding rockets bound for Tskov by train. Currently you've just survived an ambush on the train, killing your attackers. You looted the corpses, secured their weapons and ammo, and are on the way to Tskov, where you agreed to team up with a minotaur to fuck some shit upCURRENT INVENTORY:350 rublesA Mosin-Nagant with a sling made of tattered cloth.

I'm trying to be historically accurate so please point out any inconsistencies
>>151647How far till we arrive in Tskov?
>>151647So I guess we'll wait.
Forgot to add that we also have 1 X mirror>>148740You are concise in the retelling of your past, answering mostly truthfully, lying by omission instead of outright lying. Leaving out the fact that you killed your team. You recount some of your previous missions to her, various assassinations and assaults against mafia families which cause too much trouble.She is impressed, her respect for you increasing exponentially with each successive story.She seems almost embarrassed to share her story, just a street thug going around extorting people, trying to get into one of the many mafia families. She says that she's trying to get onto bigger and better things, and you're her way to get there.Slightly flattered at that, the minotaur stands up tells you that she'll leave you alone. Guns clatter as she walks back to her compartment.You take out the macaroni ration and consume it, you don't know why but you get quite hungry after firefights. You use the downtime to touch up your appearance, taking out the mirrior and wiping off specks of blood and dirt from your face, you fix your hair as well. The rest of the train ride is spent staring out the window, looking out for movement that might indicate another attack. Thankfully nothing happens and you reach Tskov without having to get shot at.The train stops and everyone dismounts. This station appears to be strictly for military use, a fairly spartan design. The military personnel gaze in shock and surprise at the bullet holes on the train, exchanging whispers between each other as to what happened. A spider-girl walks up to the group, her chitinous feet clicking as the points hit the floor. She demands to know where your guard commander is, for she much desires to speak with her.The girl who took the guard commanders dog tags shifts forwards and hands her the dog tags.She asks the group to tell her what happened, voice quavering slightly.The group looks at you expectantly. You briefly describe the events that happened, how the train had to stop, ambushed on all sides and the aftermath. The spider-girl takes some time to digest this information. She goes to the various compartments to inspect the weapons you've collected. Despite her previous mood, she seems excited now, stating that these will go to the tech squad for reverse engineering. She congratulates the entire group on making it out alive. Commending them on their bravery in battle.She introduces herself as Major Vera, here to inspect the crates of rockets. But considering recent events, she says that she'll have to question each of you seperately, to get an even more accurate account of events. You don't understand her reasoning but you aren't about to argue with a major.She brings each person to one side, you don't know what she talks to them about but it doesn't seem hostile.When it's finally your turn, she beckon you to come over. She studies you for what seems like an eternity, scrutinising you.
>>152084It's quite uncomfortable being looked at this intensely, you can't help but fidget under her gaze. For whatever arbitrary reason she relents, giving you some breathing room. "So, apparently you're the leader of this group of guards?" She asks, "you know, one of the questions i asked the rest was what you did to earn that title, i must say im impressed if what they told me was true. I'm inclined to believe them." She gestures to the four guns you're carrying, the belt, backpack and blood on your clothes. "The Red Army could use someone like you, good in a fight, able to take command. What do you say? If you agree i would take you under my wing." She extends her hand, ready to be shaken.
>>152139agree but we want to keep our homegirls happy, so ask if there is a way to move into a "home" so that you can be close to your "family"or if its possible to send paychecks safetly back to refuge camp when on duty (i really like our little elf)
>>152989>>152139Before you shake hands you tell her you have people you care about back in your home town, what would become of them?She tells you not to worry, just tell her where they're located and she'll send some Red Army soldiers to retrieve them. She says that she'll set you up with them in a nice home here in Tskov.Do you tell Major Vera where Eva and Katya are?
>>153024agree and have them be sent to new location. also make sure to tell them not to ruffle up them, as one got a small handicap from previous combat.it may seem rude to have them moved from the refugecamp but it is needed, who knows if someone from the camp would attack them in search of food?
>>153024Hell no, life of the freelancer is one for us, politely decline. We're still on to fuck shit up with the minotaur anyway.
>>153060>>153076Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be a choice where i can incorporates everyones ideas. We're going to need to choose here.
>>153079Well, you know where I stand on the issue, working for ourselves is much more fun than having someone give us orders. If we want to compromise we can always ask if we can think about it and spend some time discussing it amongst ourselves as players.
alright, but getting extra tasks from the Red Army would help us make some sort of reputation, also moneymaybe we should wait for more players before deciding?
>>153083Sounds good, what do the rest think?
>>153094>>153083Same deal, let me head home first and ill write more.
>>153095Sorry I honestly can't decide right now on which choice to go with. Can we ask her to give us a day or two to decide?
>>153099We definitely could!
>>152139I think we should do it. also ask if the minotaur can join us ..
1 vote for no, 1 undecided and 2 votes for yes.
>>153099this sounds like the best action for this moment
>>152084You tell her where they are, and she says she'll send her best men to retrieve them, she asks if you have anything else to ask. You do have one more question. You ask her if the minotaur could join you, you say she has proven herself in the heat of the battle, saving your life. She is also very strong.She looks at the minotaur in disdain, "I have no need of thugs like her, and even if i did i have no plans of having two understudies. If courage, bravery and strength are your criteria for what makes a good soldier, i guarantee you will find those characteristics in surplus, in better people than her, where i am taking you. So, i ask you again, how will it be? i will requisition a nice house for you and your friends where you can stay together here in Tskov, and you will, in due time and under my guidance, become a hero to the people."You ask her if she can give you some time to think it over, this is a big decision after all.Unfortunately, she tells you no. She is a busy woman, though she will be upset if you deny the request, you must decide now.
>>153099For what it's worth I'll change my vote to back this to keep things moving.
>>153196You think about the offer, it doesn't sound that much more different than your work with the mercenary company, just with an official title and the chance of glory. had you not been fired, you would have continued working at the mercenary company, the freelancing you did was not in your 5 year plan.
>>153197what'd i do D:
>>153211Oh don't mind me I'm not being serious, I just posted my vote change at the exact same time you posted that. I would have preferred a chance for us as players to come to a consensus over this while we wrecked shit with the horned chick since we pretty much all voted for that, but this is acceptable. I for one, vote to say no. Got no interest in throwing our scorp girl into a meat grinder yet, playing as a literal murderhobo is too much fun just at the moment. Hopefully once things start to really heat up with the Nazi's we'll get a better offer as a semi independent contractor, but for now I prefer staying unaffiliated.
>>153231currently just waiting for the other dudes to pipe in, now we know a bit more about her character and stuff.
>>153205I would vote that we agree on joining the red armybattling the nazis, evacuating the villages in the border, maybe even get to ride a tank
>>153231it seem unfortunately, that we will be joining them. don't worry, i dont think youll be too upset.
>>153251unfortunate for you that is, is what i meant. coz you didnt want to join them.
>>153253It's all good, I have faith in your QMing skills to make things interesting either way.
>>153195She extends her hand for the second time, and you take it. She grins, telling you that you will not regret this decision. She shouts for store personnel to unload the rockets and hands each of the guards a slip of paper, filled with details on the job ultimately used to collect their pay. Pointing to a troll wearing a peaked cap, she tells them to hand the slips to her for payment. She does not give you one.The minotaur gives you confused, hurt look. You mouth an apology to her as she walks away with the group. Addressing you, Major Vera tells you that your payment will be separate from the rest. She asks you to follow her to her office.You exit the train station and enter the city. Substantially more lively than your home town, there are cars and trucks containing soldiers constantly passing by on the highway, A contingent of soldiers walk into the train station, no doubt bound for Poland on an armoured train. There is a statue of Lenin, one leg up on a rock holding CCCP flag, triumphant. Everywhere workers are rushing around with paperwork, Red Army officers stand around looking important. Somewhere in the distance a clock tower chimes, indicating that it is 1200 hours. You stand still, absorbing this new city. Major Vera prompts you to follow her as she enters a black sedan. She tells the driver to take her back to headquarters. The majority of the drive is spent in silence, with only occasional passing comments from the Major about the city. You arrive at your destination and exit the car. Major Vera announces to you that this is Astaporvo Square where you will report to, should she be in need of your services. Built of red brick, the design is almost regal . Rectangular in shape, ornate designs decorate the black spiked fence surrounding it. She ushers you in, passing the security without so much as an acknowledgement of her existence, she leads you up some stairs and through some corridors before opening a door labelled " Maйóp Vepa Caдыкoвa". She enters it and holds the door for you, closing it behind you. She sits down behind her desk and motions for you to do the same on the opposite side. The first thing she does is to take out a stack of notes, counting out six 100 ruble notes and hands them to you, stating that it's your payment for the job. You take it and place it with the rest of your money. She says that the rest received 400 rubles, 100 more than what they were meant to take in acknowledgement of the firefight. She tells you that if you continue to outperform the rest like you did before, 600 rubles will seem like a paltry sum. Taking out some papers, she tells you to read them thoroughly, and sign on to sign on the lines indicated once you have finished. She waits patiently as you do so.
I way too much time deciding on her last name, also next parts coming soon, its just taking alot more research than i anticipated. attached is similar to what i had in mind for our initial view of the city. I know i didn't describe the car journey but i felt like i was taking too long to write it, so sorry about that.
>>153303...What sort of monstergirl was Lenin?
>>153303As you read through the papers, you notice a lot of references to the NKVD, or People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs, and the secret police. your forehead creases in concern, you've heard stories of the NKVD and what they do, known for the activities of the GULAG, where they execute their prisoners and the formation of the GUGB, an intelligence service. The secret police on the other hand, act beyond the law, protecting the interests of the CCCP and Stalin. Now that you think about it, you kind of already did that when you were working for the mercenary company. Continuing on, you see that one of the papers is a nondisclosure agreement, preventing you from talking about your work with anyone.Do you sign these papers?if you want to, read up on the NKVD, interesting stuff that will provide more detail on this than i can >>153317oh fuck me, i totally got way too absorbed into the writing to even consider that. fuuuuck. Let's just change the name to Lanaya, and was a... Jinko, a Tiger-girl
>mfw every time i write in a male character
>>153325Lenin and Stalin are last names.So maybe the leader are was Lanaya Lenin and still poses triumphant
>>153328Kill me now.
>>153330you can make it work!
Do you guys want to sign these papers?
>>153351Ill bite.Sign em
>>153351So we get to be secret police if we sign this?
>>153365oh boy it sure does look to be the case
>>153323>Do you sign these papers?No. Let's not start executing civilian refugees in forests and hanging them on trees.
>>153351No. I want to shoot Germans and Chechnyans, not snoop about tracking down filthy capitalist infiltrators.
>>153372Well now, we have a stalemate.
>>153368I will sign this then. The idea of being able to send and random proles to gulags amuses me.
>>153386Dont sign papers.
>>153384back to a stalemate>>153380also currently we are friends with Germany, so shootin poles for now,
>>153323You put the papers down and sit back up, looking at Major Vera you tell her that you cannot sign the papers in good conscience, knowing what you know of the secret service and NKVD. She looks at you in disappointment, she asks if you're sure.You tell her that you are.She sighs and collects the paper, placing them back in her drawer. She directs you to the door, telling you that you are free to go.You open the door and take your leave, walking down the stairs you exit the building.You aren't sure if you've made a mistake not signing it, or if you saved yourself a lot of trouble but it isn't worth dwelling on now. The breeze ruffles your hair. You are still free to do what you want, with nothing binding you, what do you do now?
>>153418Try and track down that minotaur. See if she is still willing to partner up.
>>153418Buy some lunch.
>>153423thiswouldnt want to miss a potential ally/friend
Dinner time, i'll write after :D
>>153418>>153423>>153427Unfortunately the ride from the train station was quite far, and not at all feasible to walk to, it would likely take hours, by which time the minotaur would have sure left. You would take a Marshrutka, a routed taxi, but the Red Army requisitioned all of them at the start of The Great Patriotic WarIt seems that you won't be able to find that boisterous minotaur.You walk down the street to a street vendor, selling various buns. You buy 2 Chiburekki's for 40 kopeks, it's nice and filling.Unable to find your would be partner in crime, and a long way away from the train station it seems you are stranded in Tskov.
>>153478>>153467You look around and survey your surroundings"Fuck" you say to yourself.
>>153492Could we not take a bus to the train station?Did WWII USSR not have busses?
DAMNIT I WANTED SECRET POLICE...fuck my shit senpai
Head back and sign the fucking paperI want execute
>>153506It is only option
>>153495You look around for a while longer, despair settling in your heart. Suddenly, you get an epiphany, why don't you take the buses? You walk around looking for a bus stop, finding one a few streets away, you wonder why you didn't see it earlier.You look at the bus route and lo and behold, it does lead to that train station. You wait for about 5 minutes before it appears, you wait for those on board to exit before you enter. Paying the fee of 5 kopeks, you take a seat and wait to arrive at your destination.The city is quite nice, Buildings are fairly well kept, trees line the roads which are surprisingly well maintained, most of the vehicles driving by are military ones. The bus finally reaches the station and you alight, eager to find the minotaur you rush through the station, trying to remember where you were.and i will write the next part later.
>>153536Walking around you see the "guards" sitting around, the minotaurs back facing you. You walk up to them and ask them what's up, the minotaur turns her head and her eyes widen in surprise, "I thought you left with that bitch to go do some official work?" You tell her that things just didn't work out. Answering your question she says that they're just waiting for payment, in true militaristic fashion, nothing can be achieved without a healthy dose of waiting. You sit with them, telling them of the headquarters and how nice it looked, the fancy interiors and nice pens. You guys sit around for an hour or so before a lady comes up tot he group and directs them to follow her. She leads them to a counter where she gets on the opposite side and hands out 400 rubles to each girl, their eyes widen at this sum of money. To many, this would be the equivalent of 2 or 3 months wage.The minotaur grins at you at she pockets the money.With nothing to keep the group together, they disperse, branching of into pairs or leaving alone. The minotaur joins you as you exit.She tells you that she has connections in Tskov, able to provide a place to stay, and contracts to fulfill. She asks you to follow her.Don't really have the time to write more, so i do apologize. i'll definitely write more tomorrow.as usual, feedback etc etc
>>153581Thanks for running today, Merc.
>>153581I had fun here OP, thanks for running.
We didnt even get paid
>>153767You know i love this thread so I aint gonna say thanks
>>153738we kept the 600 rubles
>>153773Thats less than one trip to the universal store..
>>153775retconned the entire currency system to be more historically accurate, you notice that those 2 buns only cost 40 kopecks, and the bus ride only being 5. one kopek being 1/100 of a ruble.in addition to that, i tried to make it clearer that a few hundred ruble is now worth alot more in the last update, >She leads them to a counter where she gets on the opposite side and hands out 400 rubles to each girl, their eyes widen at this sum of money. To many, this would be the equivalent of 2 or 3 months
>>153581Thanks for running, was a joy to follow up at work today
>>153782Okay cool.. But we still have 19,000 rubles right :DDDDDD
>>153775The thing being we got money from a hitman task when we had nothing but ourselves as a tool to take down our targetWith this, we got 600 rubles and ammunition + gun
>>153797HAHAHAH no bro do you even read.i updated the OP>>153792 happy to make you happy dude :D also if you like the story, give yo input, the faster i get em the faster i write.
>>153809Keep going with the slavic/german names, I think the story becomes more wholesome that way. You seem to have grasped the concept of running a WW2 scenario with monstergirls being the theme really well so far, even if we play as a scorpiongirl that doesnt really know what social interactions are suitable for different occasions And avoiding lewd scene requests Btw is it true that you use the mobile for writing this quest?
>>153873yeah, the entire last thread and 2/3 of the one before that was on mobile. also what do you mean by not knowing what social interactions are suitable for different occasions?
>>153938 Its not a bad thing, takes time to develop a character backbone from scratch,you have done much to make us love our Natalya, so keep up the good works :)
>>154015Nah like i actually dont know what you mean
>>153581Thanks for running
>>153581Before moving off, she mentions that her name is Tatyana. You tell her yours in return and the two of you board the bus, travelling the same route as before.The requisition of cars by the Red Army has made public transport the only viable way of getting around Soviet cities, so buses are quite often packed full. Tatyana has issues fitting on the bus, her large size a hindrance rather than a help in this particular situation. She manages to squeeze on, those around you not eager to be too close to a girl carrying four guns, a deadly pincer and multiple magazines. Getting off is an issue though, with girls having to actually leave the bus before there is enough space for the two of you to alight. You have to change buses a few times before reaching your destination, thankfully the other buses not nearly as full as the first one. Leaving the city center, you realise that it was all a show. as you move further into the outskirts of the city, the effort that went into making the nice bright facade Tskov with Astaporvo Square and the surrounding areas clearly did not extend past a certain range. The buildings and scenery getting less and less well maintained, almost like they planned the city as a gradient. In your current locations, the buildings are made of dreary grey concrete, water stains applying an ugly dark gray colour to an already bleak environment. Tatyana asks you to follow her as she leads you past rows of identical khrushchyovka's before stopping. You notice that her PPD-40 is gone, probably forced to return it before receiving her payment. you wonder why you were allowed to keep your guns. You look around but the only difference you can tell between the buildings were the leafless trees surrounding them. You enter the building and ascend one flight of steps and she knocks on a door. You hear something shifting behind the door before it open, just enough for whoever is inside to get a peek of any visitors. You hear a coarse chortle behind the door as it closes again. You hear a latch undo as the door opens fully this time, revealing an ape-girl who immediately gives Tatyana a hug. Tatyana introduces the two of you, introducing the ape-girl as Nina, an old friend, and you as the person she saved the life of. She gives you a cheeky grin.Nina invites the two of you in. she closes the door and you see that the shifting sounds was a desk. she moves it back so that it's blocking the door. The apartment smells heavily of cigarettes, a half empty packet of Belomorkanal's on the table would explain that, and her coarse voice. She asks Tatyana what she'd doing back here in this shit hole of a city. She explains what happened on the train ride and Nina claps her hands and laughs in delight at the story, a bit odd considering the nature of it but her face turns serious when Tatyana mentions why the two of you are together. Nina explains that she still knows some people connected to the underground.
>>156910And that she might be able to get some contracts written up, but not today. Today, she doesn't feel particularly energetic. She takes a cigarette and lights it, without regard for whether you care or not. She sits down on a couch, the ceiling directly above it stained brown with cigarette smoke. crossing her legs, she tells the two of you that she's willing to let you stay here with her, provided she receives 30% of your earnings from contracts she provides you.What do you say to this?
>>156936Sounds good to me
>>156936Gonna have to be pretty damn high paying contracts for 30% sweetheart.
>>156945>>156936>>157148You tell her they better pay high to justify that 30% cut.Nina smirks and leans out of her couch to shake both your hands, before leaning back and relaxing, taking a long drag from her cigarette. She pays you no mind as the two of you stand around, unsure of what to do. Tatyana asks you to follow her, she knows other people in the area that would be willing to help her.You walk around the block, knocking on various doors. Some don't answer, other slam the door in your face. It seems friends of Tatyana might not have been friends after all. Eventually, after a string of shouts saying they do not want solicitors, Tatyana collapses on to the floor, knees propped up she leans against the wall.Forehead creased in frown, she wonders why no one answered her.You stay there for a while. You wonder how Eva and Katya are doing, what shenanigans they're up to. You hope Eva doesn't teach her anything inappropriate. Suddenly, without warning, Tatyana stands up, her face filled with frustration and anger. She tells you that she's heading back to Nina's, but you're free to do whatever you want. She walks off without waiting for you.Well?
>>157237Explore I guess, look for anything interesting.
>>157237Wander round, see if there isn't a town board advertising odd jobs like there was back in <starting location>.
>>157237>>157265>>157271>>157306 alright, I'm calling <starting location> Opochka.You get up and wander around, to familiarise yourself with the general area. The khrushchyovka's seem to be arranged in squares, with each apartment making up one side of the square. In the middle of each square there's a playground, fairly simple, a swing set, see-saws, slides and a merry go round. You don't see any children playing in them.You look around for a town board, or something similar to what Opochka had but you can't find one. You don't get the same sense of cohesion here that you did back home. It honestly feels slightly desolate here, nothing like what the city centre promised. This place is starting to get you down just by existing.You keep walking around, trying to find something of interest.You don't.Defeated, you sit on the swings and think about Eva and Katya again, day dreaming about what they might be doing, how Eva's holding up without you to help her. Your mind starts to wonder.A shriek from your left shatters your thoughts, It seems someone is being mugged, do you investigate the noise?
>>157391Yes we do. Got nothing better to do.
>>157529>>157391You get off the swing and run towards the noise, turning the corner you see Tatyana cornering a slime-girl, one hand on her mouth to stop any further noises.Do you stop her?
>>157554Ask what she's up to.
>>157586>>157554You make your presence known by shouting at Tatyana, "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING‽"Tatyana's head snaps to look at you and the slime girl uses the distraction to slip free of her grasp. She runs away, presumably back to her apartment. Tatyana does not give chase.Tatyana walks up to you, facial expressions changing between frustration and shame. She tells you it wasn't what it looked like, "That slime girl, she bumped into me on purpose, I had to...I...."She falters as she fails to think of a convincing argument. She looks away, unable to meet your eyes.Almost like a switch is flip, she says to you, voice raised, "What businesses is it of yours what I do in my own free time?
>>157650If you rather be a mugger all your life that is your choice, I wont stop you. But when folks starts hunting you down, dont take it personally that I might be interested in the reward than keeping you safe. ...ever tried earning from cagefighting?
>>157670>>157650You tell her that she can do whatever she wants, you don't care but you warn her that if she messes with the wrong girl who puts a price on her head, don't take it personally when you decide that the reward is worth more than the effort it will to keep her safe.She narrows her eyes before snorting, she pushes past you and walks off. Cocky...
>>157727ill write the next part later
>>157727You sigh, You shouldn't be surprised considering her background but you can't help but be dissapointed.You walk back to the swings but a small cough behind you makes you turn around. It's the slime girl from before, timidly she thanks you for stopping that bully from hurting her. She asks if you would like to join her in her apartment, there's something she would like you ask of you.i'm just going to assume you guys will say "yes"You follow her into her apartment, she pull sup a chair for you to sit on and offers you some tea and biscuits. You politely decline. Sitting on another chair she says she saw how fearlessly you confronted that minotaur, and that she would like to make use of someone like you.She tells you that she's been having troubles with a bully, someone that has been tormenting her her entire life, pushing her into puddles, insulting and berating her for the smallest things, physically abusing her. She says that she does it to her friends to, not just her. She asks if you would be willing to send a message on her behalf. To leave her and her friends alone.She wouldn't be able to pay you much but she would be in your debt if you do this for her.Almost as an afterthought, she mentions in a soft voice that her bully is an ushi-oni.Oh. Right...Ushi-Oni are terryfying. Possessing the upper body of a woman and the lower body of a spider, they are extremely ferocious, capable of shooting out thick rope like webbing, they are capable of quickly regenerating after being wounded, apparently not feeling any pain at all from minor wounds. i know i said no magic, but i think characteristics of the various monstergirls i use are important to stay true to.
>>157806We will concider it, just with more caution, dont want another hellhound hostage like when the Oni was disposed off Ask for direction and if she knows anymore details about this person
>>157823We going monster hunting
>>157806Tell her we can't think of any way of beating a ushi oni without actually killing her. Because honestly I can't, just about the only thing that will stop a pissed off ushi oni is copious amounts of venom, which conveniently posses.
>>157827>>157823 >>157806You cautiously accept, asking for more details on her. These are the things she tells you1) Green skin, Heavily tattooed. 2) Has been to jail before3) Always hangs out with a group red onis and ogres, they are also heavily tattooed. 4) They often hang out inside the ushi-onis apartment, near here, or at a cafe near by. She provides you with directions to both5) They drink a lot when they are togetherWhy didn't she tell you she had a group of friends before? The clock onthe wall says its 2 pm.How do you go about dealing with this?
>>157875You look back from the clock to the slime girl and sigh. You tell her the truth, that you honestly cannot think of a way to make her problems go away without killing the ushi oni. She gasps and looks to the ground, thinking it over for no more than a minute. She says softly, barely perceptible to your ears, "OK, i'm not sure she deserves to live, she has done horrible things."Slightly unnerving with how quickly she came to that conclusion
>>157877Find Tatyana and tell her you just got a job from the slime girl she was beating on. Not for her, for a ushi oni. Got to watch the quiet ones girl, they're the ones who hire types like us.
>>157881>>157882this. Also we do this because justice needs to be done
>>157883>>157882>>157881You tell her that you'll get the job done, her face lights up and she thanks you profusely. You decline her offer of tea and biscuits one more time before you leave.You head back to Nina's place in the hopes that Tatyana's there, and not beating on another poor helpless girl. You hear the shifting of furniture as the door to Nina's apartment opens, and quite conveniently, Tatyana answers the door. You tell her that she shouldn't harass random girls she finds, "That slime girl you were mugging or whatever? She approached me after you left and gave me a job." Tatyana's eyes narrow. "No, It's not a hit on you, it's for an ushi-oni." Her face turns into a concerned frown. "You wanted to fuck some shit up? This is a prime opportunity, we kill the ushi oni, maybe her friends to and call it a day."She seems to like the phrase "fuck shit up" as she immediately perks up and agrees.Where do you head to first, her apartment or to the cafe? Or something else?
>>157898Maybe we should tail her, figure out when she's alone and get the drop on her. And are we at least going to try beating the shit out of her or we going to go straight for the kill?
>>157898Whether we try to beat the shit out of her or straight up kill her is up to you guys. And you don't even know where she is currently, how would you tail her?
>>157909Oh, right, surreptitiously check out her apartment. If she's there by herself we can do this job double quick, and if not head on down to the cafe and wait till she's by herself.
>>157916>>157898You lead the way to the ushi onis apartment. It's in the building opposite Nina's. You walk up to the door, you don't hear anything coming from the other side. She must be at the cafe.You walk over to the cafe, it isn't that far away from the khrushchyovka's. Approaching it, you see them. Sitting outside there's about 7 of them, inclusive of your target. They're making quite a ruckus, guffawing, hooting and whistling at passer by's, you see empty bottles of vodka on the tables, along with ash tray filled with cigarette ashes. They're loud, scaring away other customers, no one else is inside the cafe. You hang around for a while, leaning against the building opposite, using your peripheral vision to look at them. They stay there for a really really long time. The sun starts to set before they leave, in a group, going back in the direction of the ushi onis apartment. An Ogre spits throws lit cigarette butt on you as they walk past you, you scramble to get it off as she laughs sadistically. The lingering cloying smell of alcohol and cigarettes taints the air.You follow behind them, leaving a large gap. They walk back to the khrushchyovka, presumably back to the ushi onis apartment, loud and obnoxious.
>>157987We should have asked Nina if they usually bunk as a group at the apartment. Wait, her place is literally across the street, let's have Tatyana stake out the ushi's place and pop by to ask her.
>>158001>>157987You tell Tatyana to stay here, stay hidden in case any of them leave or do something weird. She nods, moving to hide behind a tree. You walk back to Nina's place, knocking on her door. You hear the scraping of wood and the door open, undoing the latch she walks back to her couch and tells you to close it behind her.You tell her that you just wanted to ask her a question, "Does the ushi-oni living in the building opposite us normally let her friends stay over?""The fuck do you want to know about her for? Don't go messing around with things you cannot fathom knowing. She's deep with the mob, i wouldn't fuck with them unless you wanna be fucked back, and no, i don't fuckin' know if her friends stay over. You bring any trouble to me and any deal we have, or will have, is off the table."
>>158023You close the door behind you and you head back to Tatyana. The sky is starting to darken now, and she reports that nothing has happened. You wait for a long time behind that tree, and nothing happens.
Well shit. We should call it off.
>>158026continue waiting, they will have to leave eventually and we can stalk them for an opportune time to strike and kill the ushi-oni off.We still got our 3 weapons? Loan one to Tatyana.
>>158113Oh yeah forgot, we need wear masks or something, can't let them see us and risk retaliation.
which one are we doing?
>>158187Im for these two as well, waiting for the perfect time for ambush, even if it means until they all are asleep>>158113>>158119
>>158191mayhaps they already are asleep?
>>158198Hopefully. Put on masks anyway, just to be safe.
>>158203You have no masks on hand, so all you can do is pull your shirt up. It is quite dark now, you continue waiting.
>>158211>>158113 we have 4 weapons currently.You also loan a PPD-40 to tatyana, along with 2 magazines.
Well, i'm going to bed now, ill write the next part tomorrow when you guys decide on a course of action.
>>158336GO COMMANDO WITH YOUR TIDDIES OUTSIDE
>>158336Are they still in the café? How many potential witnesses are there outside? Go buy some masks.
>>159749>>160151We should charge in there clad in nothing but masks.
They've all walked back to the apartment, it is the dead of the night.
>>160151i thought i made it fairly clear that they all walked back to their cafe and that it's really late at night, sorry if i didnt.you're waiting outside the building behind a tree, to see if anyone has left the apartment, nobody has thus far. no one is around except those in their apartments, but they're most likely sleeping.
>>160596Ok, we got some time then, go buy some materials for a few Molotov cocktails and two fucking masks already. Throw a few cocktails inside and then mow them down when they try to flee form the burning café.
>>160668;_; they aren't at the cafe, and you doubt any shops are open at this time of night.
>>160677My mistake, go into the apartment then. Find out where she lives.
>>160717we already know where she lives, bro did you read .
>>160734I thought the apartments referred to the commie blocks with multiple units in it that is prevalent in the Soviet Russia. Show me a pic of what the building looks like so I can better understand.
>>160760ah, i was using it to refer to the individual blocks inside them, maybe erroneously, if so i'm sorry. but yes, we know exactly where they are currently.
>>160789Let's go knocking. When they open the door or peek through, start blasting through, sweep and clear the whole place inside.thread is pretty quiet, planning on quitting yet?
>>161400is that a dare
>>161400But if no one else replies we'll go rambo like you suggested.
oh geeze dont go rambo!look through the windows first for an advantage point
>>161445I kind of prefer the idea of attempting to beat them down the old fashioned way and only resort to actually massacring them if it looks like we're getting overpowered. They're all in with the mob, killing them all straight up might be less than ideal. I say we find some big heavy clubs or poles of some sort and beat the ever living shit out of all of them. Kick down the front door if they're asleep, and really crack some skulls. For the ogres and onis, we only need to break a limb or two to permanently take them out of the fight, and for the ushi herself will regenerate from virtually any physical damage so we can really go all out on her. I'm talking gouge her eyes out, mangle her limbs to the point she will have to rip them off and grow them back. And of course this is while fully masked, and with our submachine guns at hand at all times in case things go south.
>>161497You move away from the tree to try and look through her window, unfortunately her apartment is on the second story, and it being so dark, you can't see anything.
>>161504If we go this route, we'll have to buy the masks tomorrow. and if we want to wait for them to crash at her apartment again, we'll have to wait another ~20 hours.
>>161513Dude, I'm just talking about scraps of tied around our heads, like a scarf or something. Hell, you can use a t shirt as a mask, something simple like that.
>>161508I guess its good enough time to move inside the complex, move closer to the building to the front door I just hope that the spider doesnt go down through the windows to sneak up from us from behind, as thats a concern of mine when we are in combat
>>161523What spider, are you talking about the Major wot tried to recruit us into the NKVD?
>>158023>>161518 we're already using out shirts as makeshift masks, covering the lower half of our face and our nose.>>161526 go and look up "ushi-oni" on the monster girl wikibetween ku1M and this, im wondering if you guys even read what i writeTatyana gets tired of waiting behind the tree and nudges you to move. You can't think of anything better so you follow her. Tatyana picks up a short metal pole off the ground as you make your way up the stairs, You are now directly in front of the door to her apartment, you do not hear anything from the other side.
>>161526our target IS a spider who can use webs switching to pc for better overview of the quest
>>161531Try the door, they might not have locked it Ready our guns and poles I guess
>>161526refer to the last few lines of>>157806
>>161540You check that your guns are loaded and ready, your Mosin-Nagant, two MP-40's are ready to fire.Checking the door handle, you find that it turns fully. the door is not locked.
>>161561Go in and be silent. Cover their mouths and then slit their throats. Start shooting when you get discovered.
>>161561Open the door, we need to have visuals of the target(s) if they are there
>>161571>>161568 roll a d100 for to be sneak breeki like
>>161547Right, I'm familiar with ushi onis but for some reason I don't equate them with spiders. Must be the fluffy bits.
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>161579Here we go!
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>161579
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>161579Again
>>161585You motion to Tatyana to be quiet, and you open the door very slowly. It doesn't make a noise as it opens. Carefully and cautiously you enter the room, Tatyana very close behind you.There are sleeping ogres and red-onis everywhere, on the floor, on the couch, on foldable chairs. The smell of vodka is strong and smoke is repulsive and strong. You do not see the ushi-oni. Unsheathing the knife from the holster on your belt, you move to the closest mobster, an ogre, long hair covering her pierced face. You put your hand over her mouth as you simultaneously insert your knife deep into her neck, pulling up in a way that severs her windpipe, carotid and jugular arteries in one swift, practiced, motion. Her eyes open in alarm as her body twitches and spasms involuntarily. Unable to scream or shout for help, all she can do is grasp feebly at your hands, and attempt to breathe through her severed wind pipe, taking giant gasping breaths, choking on her own blood. You place a hand on the gash to mute any sounds.She loses consciousness quickly, heart still beating, blood still flowing from her arteries.She loses her life soon after.You work quickly and silently, efficiently working your way through the bodies in the same way you dealt with the first. At one point, it get's a bit tense, The spasms of an ogre causing her to repeatedly hit the red-oni beside her, waking her up. Bleary eyed she looks at you, her faced intensely confused.Working quick, you immediately move to deal with her, her ogre friend still in the throes of death beside her.Tatyana stares at you in awe at your proficiency. The smell of blood now mingling with the smell of alcohol and smoke, creating a new sickening smell. You wipe your knife and hands on a curtain, cleaning it of the blood. That could have gone a lot worse. Now this leaves the ushi-oni, you explore the apartment, careful to avoid the pools of blood. You find her, sleeping on her back, legs splayed out on a bed.How do you deal with her?
>>161627RAIN OF STEEL
>>161627Double tap that shit
>>161627Cut her head off. Like, completely, while Tatyana drives a knife into her heart.
>>161627>>161634>>161633Deciding on a course of action, you tell Tatyana that you plan to fill her body with bullets, then plunging a knife into her heart while you cut off her head. Tatyana nods a head a few times in agreement as he goes to retrieve a kitchen knife from the kitchen. Upon her return, You and Tatyana look at each other, she grins at you, before you both unload your guns on the sleeping ushi-oni. The room is filled with the sound of gunfire as her body is peppered with bullets. The small room amplifying the sound of the gunfire, you can't hear much aside from ringing. Tatyana rubbing her ears, she's experiencing the same thing as you. You keep forgetting to buy earplugs. Shaking your head you find that Tatyana has already started moving towards the ushi-oni, overcome with bloodlust, she drives the knife into her heart multiple times, each time she pulls the knife out she's splattered with blood.You move to cut off the ushi-onis head, but you stop as Tatyana grunts in pain.Hm. That's odd.Tatyana drops the knife, falling to the floor as she lets out a strangled shout, curling up in a foetal position she lets out a horrific, primal scream. She stands up, preparing to charge you.Oh dear, it seems that the demonic energy in the ushi-onis blood has corrupted her.
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>161655Oh shit, this aint good. Avoid the charge and make your way out from the apartment, luring Tatyana out. Even if we knock her out, she is too large to move out, risking us being discovered by someone and telling the story forward.
>>161660If we cared about being discovered, shooting our guns might not have been the best option. In any case, we still have on MP-40 and a mosin-nagant fully loaded.
>>161661I guess you are right, but staying any longer will have us in more trouble. If we are seen, both of us are going to get hunted by describtion>>161660still voting on luring her out before knocking her out
>>161661Voting for luring her out as well >>161666
>>161655Da fuq, demonic energy is a thing in this universe? I thought we were going for the sci-fi feel, oh well, give her the V(venom, all of it).
>>161669You... really didnt read about the description of the ushi-oni or what was added in >>157806 ? stop being ignorant and illiteral u pleb
>>161666>>161667>>161655She lowers her head, horns pointing towards you as she sprints in your direction. You roll out of the way and she runs past you, unable to stop her foward momentum. Running for the door, Tatyana roars in anger as she changes direction, again aiming to gore you with her horns. You make it out of the door in time, sidestepping so that Tatyana runs into the wall. Momentarily dazed, she quickly shakes it off, turning to face you she roars, only to be cut short as you raise the butt of the mosin nagant to her head and slam it forward. Her thick skull absorbs alot of the impact, leaving her stunned but still standing. You slam it onto her head a few more times, and she drops like a sack of bricks.
>>161669bro, did you even like, read anything i've written so far. sci-fi feel? don't get me wrong, i appreciate you contributing to my story but damn man
>>161685Inject the ushi-oni with our poison from tailShoot the neck multiple timesTake our shirt put it on left hand.Now cut her fucking head off using the left hand to hold the neck
>>161682Go back and and set the apartment ablaze. Sting the ushi-oni a few times before leaving. Don't want her to be pulling a Rasputin. Loot small and expensive things as well.
>>161693We don't need to destroy the town christmas..Lets loot thoughLOOT LOOT and do this>>161691
I would not go back to a room filled with bodies, rather wait for our friend to regain her wits so we can move on to clean ourselves, ridding the smell of blood and gunpowder from our beings. What is the reason behind burning the building down? And why would we do that? There might be others living in it and would have them already looking out from their windows on seeing whats going on. As for looting, no. We are a merc, not a looter.
>>161700WHAT??Do you think mercs who ARE ONLY IN IT FOR MONEY not loot?Looting = money
>>161700i'm not sute if you know this, but in-universe corruption is permanent.
>>161702>>161693Just thinking about the whole scenario, but if you guys want to loot and pillage then fuck, I can just wait until that sequence is over. >>161702Whats our max capacity?
>>161700Mercs are basically Murderhobo-lite you know?>>161702What is gonna happen to our minotaur "friend", is she gonna be unstable from now on?
>>161705We going to have quite a list when we done looting ;)
>>161702Fine we also blow her fucking head off cheers tatyana But surely it shouldn't be permanent..Because tatyana is a monster girl.. SHE AINT HUMAN NIGGAH
>>161706well, in-universe, if you're a human and you become corrupted you turn into a monster girl.From http://monstergirlencyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Fairy, particularly the last 3 lines of the first paragraph, but when a fairy gets exposed to demonic energy, they become nymphomaniacs.Now, most monsters already have demonic energy in them so being exposed to more doesn't do anything to them but i thought it would be interesting if being exposed to a whole bunch, like the demonic energy contained in the blood of an ushi-oni, turns them bonkers.If you don't like that sure, it could be a temporary thing.also currently we are carrying around 15kg's of items. we can definitely carry more. 25 maybe? 30 would be a stretch but manageable.
>>161712I think permanent is best :DDDDLets kill tatyana Also Im chaotic evil btw
>>161716Yeah... I gathered that.. Ill wait for more input.
Rolled 37 (1d100)Is Tatyana well hidden and outside? If so, head back to the apartment and take some evidence of our target as proof for our contractor. Rolling for extra loot
>>161721don't uh, don't need to roll unless i ask, mostly we'll be rolling for things like, shoot this dood or dodge this dood, or speechchecks.
also now that i think about it, you guys opted to sting her but stinging her would get blood on us, if only the stinger.so imma veto that suggestion, considering that would end this story.
>>161793also, what would a shirt do to stop the blood, it might for a bit but if we're cutting her head off, it will get everywhere. normally i would just incorporate your decisions but considering a fuck up here would literally end the story, i'm getting a bit more involved.
>>161801Umm Lets get a machete and do from long range compared to a knife. Do it slowly like a saw. Cut in a sawing motion. Just like you would cut a piece of meat with a table knife
>>161825Searching the bodies of the dead gang members, you find that almost all of them are carrying hand guns and knives. Searching around the apartment you don't find much.did you expect to just randomly find a machete
>>161828Well i have a machete in my garage... Im sure most people do...
>>161833these guys apparently don't
>>161801get a stick or pole whatever, must be long and hard, grab a knife and tie it to one end of our stick, coat it with our poison and stab her once with our makeshift spear to ensure her death.
you guys sure like you sharp point things>>161682>>161846Walking back to Tatyana's body you pick up the metal pole. Tearing off fabric from the shirt of an ogre on the floor, you attach your knife to the pole, constructing a make shift spear. Applying some of your venom to it, you plunge the blade into the ushi-onis heart, and proceed to laboriously saw away at her neck, severing her head from her body.You doubt anything could come back from that. You hear some movement outside, and a very familiar groan.Uh oh.also you guys, why didn't we just use our mosin-nagant and asplode her head?
>>161854 cuz the ones who are playing came from a civ quest Greet Tatyana and tell her about the tainted blood that caused her to see red.
>>161887so are you making it temporary or permanent?make it temporary for less edgepermanent for more Grimdark
>>161899perm, i think it's more interesting.
>>161907Then unfortunately.. we have to do what we have to do.Bullet in the brain. Fired from our mosin
>>161907>No reducing of corruption levels by drinking copious amount of vodka O-Okkill the Minotaur by tapping once at her head and dissolve her afterwards. No traces
>>161934>>161929>>161854You un-sling your mosin-nagant and walk back to Tatyana, she's on all fours, rubbing her head and trying to find her bearing. You take aim at her head and fire a shot. Her brains splatter on the corridor and floor. Her arms, no longer having a brain to control them, gives out and she slumps back down to the ground.No hesitation on your part, no love loss, you drag her body by the feet into the bathroom and coat her with your venom, it takes some time but your ally-turned-rage-incarnate is now a puddle on the floor.You survey the macabre sight infront of you, the dark lighting making it seem that much more grim.
>>161969You sure did a number on these guys, What do you do now?
>>161974Retrieve our loaned weapon, she won't need it anymore, heh. Take a quick look at the apartment for any valuables/interesting items before finally locking up the apartment and GTFO.
Also doodled this, gonna fuck off now.
>>162003>>161969You retrieve the PPD-40 from the corridor, you two Nagant M1895 revolver's from the dead gang mambers and stick them in your bag, along with 6 speedloaders. You search through their coat pockets and wallets, collecting a total of 140 rubles. You discard your knife tainted with the ushi-oni's blood and acquire a new one. It doesn't fit perfectly into the holster but it fits well enough.You search around but you don't find anything else of interest. Leaving the gruesome seen behind you, you close the door and head back to Nina's apartment. Nobody seems to have bothered to, or dared to inspect the gunshots.You knock on her door to no avail. Your knocks get progressively louder until you hear a very loud "FUCK OFF" from Nina. You shout back that it's you. You stand there waiting expectantly.After a while you finally hear the shifting of furniture and the undoing of a door latch as Nina lets you in. She gives you the evil eye along with some indistinct grumbles as you enter. You unsling your weapons and place them on the ground as Nina asks you where Tatyana is.
>>162055That is amazing, and i love you for drawing it. Thank you so much :D i really like it.i wish i could draw, would make this quest alot more interesting.
>>162055you even got the hime cut correct
i just feel like we are metagaming. how did we know that the corruption was incurable?that said, thanks for the quest, because im hating these spur of the moment twists and wont tolerate it anymorepeace
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>162063I hate to say it, but I think we're going to have to kill Nina. She knows of our interest in the Ushi and her crew, and our ties to Tatyana, whose corpse we left at the scene of the crime. Come morning the mob is going to be upending the town looking for who did this, and Nina is the only one who could and would lead them right to us. Kill her now before she gets the chance.
>>162087I'm holding out on the hope that this sort of shit will end as we settle into the character and the setting, but I get why you're fed up with the way this quest is going. Later man.
>>162114>>162087if you guys don't like stuff please tell me, i literally have no other way of knowing what you guys like or don't like.
We should`ve knocked Tatyana out and tied her up before asking Nina what to do.
i'm going to stop writing for tonight, apparently i'm taking this quest in the wrong direction and i'm not entirely sure what i'm doing wrong, so please tell me what you guys don't like, else i'm just going to keep writing in a way that isn't interesting/exciting to read.
>>162169I think we should have gone into the military Do you think we can go back.. It'll be better if we could get hero status and better pay
>>162245well, that's just an option you could've chosen, also it was the secret service.but like, there's an issue in my writing style i think? i'm not sure what >>162087and>>162098don't like and that's bumming me out.
>>162275We aint meta gaming.If you were a monster girl you would know everything about monster girls.We humans know everything about animals. Venomous snakes. If curable. So surely we would know that the corruption was permanent.Monster girls would know everything about each other because their lives depend on it.If you think we metagaming then you should drive off a cliff and into a frozen lake
Killing the thread unless i get feedback on the issues
>>162292I can agree on this. We should have a basic knowledge on every type of monstergirl.
I personally have no issues with the quest. Carry on
>>164982Providing us with some background information pertaining to the events at hand or including them in the narrative leading up to the vote would be nice, having an informed opinion is always handy. Enjoying your quest either way, looking forward to more.
well.. ok then. still want to know what they're issues were.
