Minions-1 Risen- intelligencex21 Revenant- speedx51 ghoul- Damagex21 Bonewarden- Durabilityx2 strengthx16 Zombies- Durabilityx1Your Ghoul, Zombies and Risen are currently fighting 7 Majadin Merchants and guards. Their leader lies bleeding and gelded in the dirt with two of his men. Several of the Zombies sport slight wounds in their tough hides.>Summarizing the last turns rolls.
>1. The Ghoul and Zombies charge into the cluster of armed and furious Majadin. Hatchets and cudgels spark against daggers and curved swords. The ghouls long, knifelike claws shred silk and slash flesh. The ferocity of the assault would break lesser men. The Majadin however, are not lesser men. They hold firm, slashing back, opening great, gaping wounds in the Zombies flesh. One tumbles back, jaw working dumbly at the long dagger jutting from its eye. Even the ferocious ghoul screeches in furious pain as its pallid flesh is split under a heavy sword stroke >19. Watch your back.The Majadin are so engrossed in their defense from the front that they forget about the undead that just gelded their leader. You remind them of your presence. Your spearhead punches through the back of a Majadin guard, the bloodied point emerging from his breastbone. With a twist and a wrench it is free, cutting through the air again to sink into the underside of a Merchants arm, blood spraying the ground from a severed vein. You turn, spinning the shaft and bringing the heavy butt across the side of a thirds head, the dense wood forcing the skull to yield.>1 Zombie killed>2 zombies moderately wounded>Ghoul moderately wounded>3 Majadin Killed>5 Zombies, 1 Ghoul and 1 Risen vs 4 Majadin>Full attack! >Surround them>Fight defensively>Other

>14.The Zombies surge forward, heedless of their wounds. Their thick skin grips the blades and makes withdrawing them difficult as they smash heavy blows into their chests and sides. Bone splinters and flesh pulps under the powerful strikes. A pair of the Majadin are borne to the ground, blood pouring from their lips.The Ghoul leaps over the crowd of Zombies pummeling the pair of Majadin into a thick paste and sinks its claws into the chest of one of the remaining guards. The wet bone points emerge from the mans back as the ghoul shifts its weight and turns the pounce into a roll, flinging the man skyward. The last guard turns to run but is confronted by>19. Jabbity jab.The heavy butt of your spear slams into his stomach like a battering ram, driving the air from his lungs. He staggers back, gasping as you turn. The honed edge of your spear cuts along the front of his shirt, slashing open his chest and belly in a long diagonal slash. He shouts in pain as blood gushes forth, dropping his sword and clutching at himself with both hands.With a simple blur of movement your spear pierces deep into his chest, thrusting through his heart. With a wrench of your wrist the bloodied point emerges, thick red blood dripping slowly from the end.>9 Majadin killed>Sulamise HORRIBLY wounded >Take Sulamise alive plus all the corpses.>Kill him and take all the corpses >Take all the corpses and the loot + Sulamise (Alive or dead)
>>1659325>Take all the corpses and the loot + Sulamise (Alive or dead)We did good, only lost a simple zombie. And for one that dies, three or four more will take his place.And take Sulamise alive, I have a fun idea of torture for him
>>1659330upvoted. Culminate it with a soul stealing
>>1659330We actually are at 8/10 capacity for minions
>>16593399/10 I mean.
>Gained 9 Corpses>1 Zombie corpse>3 Carts of spices and silks>Assorted Majadin Weapons and robes >1 prisoner- Sulamise QoorvosAfter dragging the bodies and loot into the woods your group begins the process of loading the bodies onto the backs of the zombies and using the dull creatures to pull the carts laden with the Majadins goods and weapons. Using the headwrapping from one of the men you bind Sulamise's ankles together and drag the barely conscious man behind you, making the arduous climb up to the lair of the Master. Your group arrives just as the sun begins to set, Wick arriving just before you in a blur of movement, a tattered scrap of parchment in his hand showing rough charcoal outlines. The Bonewarden emerges from the ground like some demonic mole, excitedly showing the maw of enchanted deer and elk bones that he had created in front of the entrance. Under a thin layer of dirt the bones would spring forth and drag the unlucky intruder into a jabbing pit of bony spikes.As the shadows deepen the master emerges, hissing in pleasure at your success.>Location of Sverelfans graveyard found>Skeletal Mantrap created>What do with corpses+ Sulamise>Feed and mutate someone >raise a minion >interrogate Sulamise>Other
>>1659341Just a figure of speech Cursed>What do with corpses+ SulamiseEat the corpses, give the bones to our Bone Warden. And I propose the name Setgash for our boney friend.As for Sulamise, interrogate him using this form of torture: drain him of blood for Thrane to drink up. But leave just enough that he'll remain conscious enough for us to interrogate. Leave him naked, and cold, hungry and thirsty
>>1659389Actually, leave one corpse. Over the interrogation, if he's possibly going to die. We cut off pieces of the corpse's flesh and feed it to him
What's a zombie's power level compared to a decently trained human like one of those guards? I send like we came out just fine despite 2 or 3 Nat 1s. We only lost one zombie which is nothing. Or are zombies tiger than I think?
>>1659414Zombies are tough. Thick skin and bulky muscle. Theyre not extremely strong but they feel no pain and every blow is as hard as they can swing. Theyre dangerous compared to a normal human if they can get into melee.
>>1659358Raise one corpse to replace our casualty, have everyone consume the flesh of the rest in front of Sulamise (like we did with the last guy) and create another Bonewarden with different traits to the other. Then we interrogate Sulamise and find out about anything useful to us. Nearby major cities, trade routes, magic, anything goes.>>1659389Setgash sounds cool.
>>1659420Okay, thanks cursed. You run a good quest
>>1659426The BoneWarden is more of a Elite/Unique unit. Skeletons could be created but another BoneWarden would decrease its specialness.
>>1659389Who are we feeding the flesh to?
>>1659476Probably or prisoner to keep him alive.What other skelly spooks can we make?
>>1659476Throwing in a counter. This guy was a skilled swordsman and we are at our limit for minions. We could use another revenant, or convert him and his soul into something...new. A metal and flesh nightmare made from his own body and all the blades of his fallen companions. Then we just keep adding blades to the pile.If his soul is powerful perhaps we reward a minion for their good work. I'm looking at the risen.
>>1659476Our captive, when he's getting hungry
>>1659494You can make Skeletons which are a excellent minion unit. They aren't much for combat but can perform improvements on the lair itself.
>>1659509So your vote is to harvest the flesh and bones (giving the bones to the Bonewarden for a total of 3 upgrades) and then feed the flesh to Sulamise as he hungers in a state of blood deprived, feverish madness
>>1659515That's the plan
>>1659524Gotcha. With the support of>>1659423Writan
>flense 9 bodies and give those healthy bones to the BoneWarden.>You are Thrane, lord of blood, the soul drinker, the claws in the dark.With a wave of your hand and the flexing of your dark will your minions scurry to do your bidding. Sulamise is dragged to the holding area and tied to the wall, pinned to the stakes with leather strips. A few drops of your blood seals his mangled wounds, ceasing the flow of blood. His lips part in pain as he is jostled but he doesn't awaken.The fallen Majadin are stripped and butchered expertly. The chunks and strips of red raw meat and brown skin are piled in a cool corner. The bones are scraped and gnawed clean. They are handed to the Bonewarden who eagerly attached them haphazardly to its body. By the time the bones are depleted the BoneWarden resembles a round pile of bones instead of the skeletal warrior.>Choose three or upgrade one multiple times.

>>1659544>>1659548>>1659550Tankiest of tanks it is.
>Durability +3The Bonewarden clatters and shifts, collapsing to the ground as its body shifts and roils. Bone bends and morphs, flowing like thick milk as it is reshaped by the fell magic holding the Bonewarden together. Your other minions back away nervously as the ivory creature expands and changes.The skeleton underneath shifts and expands, the bone thickening to truly monstrous proportions. The forearms and legs of the Bonewarden are encased in plates of bones as thick as shields, the limbs growing to the size of mans torso. Its head is encased fully in a thick, jagged shell of bone, a single great eye in the center filled with a burning ball of violet fire. Spikes and shards of shattered ribs and femurs jut from its back and shoulders, scraping furrows in the ceiling as it stands, clacking its huge jaw in approval of its new form. It lumbers about slowly, brushing aside a zombie with a careless swipe.>Bonewarden gained Durability (x5). Durability is maxed until either strength or speed is increased.>Interrogate Sulamise>Inspect Wicks discovery>Head out to hunt for yourself >Feed some minions with this large pile of flesh you have>Other
>>1659589>Feed minions>Interrogate Sulamise>Inspect Wicks discovery in that order pls
>>1659605Feed who. You have 9 bodies worth of food is enough to upgrade 4 minions with one body worth left over for Sulamise
>>1659589Yesss, our Bonewarden is becoming a truly terrifying tank. Now all we need to do is begin upgrading it's intelligence and damage. >Interrogate Sulamise
>>1659616Seriously. At 5 Durability its literally a walking tank. Just imagine a troll made out of bones, covered in spikes of bones. That just for shits and giggles is just as smart as a human.
>>1659623Could it eventually learn how to do magic?
>>1659626Absolutely. It will likely be limited to Necromancy and destruction magic unless there is a serious investment to learn a specific skill.
>>1659611Upgrade the ghoul in that case, seems like he's our damage dealer in this.
>>1659631I'm totally voting for this. It could be our highly defensive homeland security skelly, using it's own body as an impenetrable wall while constantly raising undead to swarm would be attackers.
>>1659589>Feed some minions with this large pile of flesh you haveFeed our ghoul and risen, they deserve a meal for their good work.>Inspect Wicks discoveryShow us what it is Mr. Wick>Interrogate Sulamise

>Feed some minions>Ghoul>Risen1st action. Bueno?
>>1659655Suggestion minion to feed is wick. We need to give him some love for all his hard work. Then the risen really carried some weight as well. I guess the zombies should munch enough to get repaired.
Your Ghoul and Risen move together to the pile of bloody flesh on the floor. Grabbing great handfuls of the flesh they stuff their mouths to bursting, chewing quickly and swallowing voraciously. Their bellies bulge as they stand shakily, bodies swelling with the growing power within them.>Upgrade Ghoul>Damage (x2)>Strength>Speed>Durability>Intelligence >Other>Upgrade Risen>Strength>Intelligence (x2)>Damage >Durability >speed>Other

>>1659733Is there even a cap? If there is I'm pretty sure it's a soft cap that can be raised by putting points into other areas.
>>1659735This.>>1659730>>1659718Seems to be the ones with support. Am I right?
>>1659731They are specialists, our lieutenants. There is clearly a gain in power in other areas, as the skeleton is much stronger than it was before despite the pure focus on defense, just not as strong as it would have been if we had gone down that road. Though a walking equivalent of a bulldozer does seem to have some charm. I propose increasing the skeleton's strength next.
>>1659744looks good man.
>>1659746Pretty much this. When you increase a minions skills in one category it will increase related skills marginally. Strength will increase damage and durability. Durability will increase strength. Speed will increase damage and intelligence. Intelligence increases damage and speed. The benefit is marginal but it does increase skills.
>>1659794Well considering marginal increases are to come by increasing just one stat, i'd say we switch it durability for the risen and intelligence fo the ghoul
>Speed for GhoulYour ghoul shudders and twitches as its nerves and tendons are ravaged by the change. Bone lengthens and muscle bulges in its shoulders and thighs as it adopts a more quadripedal stance. Its feet become more bestial and clawed, stretching like the foot of some great wolf. It crouches and skitters along the wall like a monstrous insect, digging its claws into the soft stone.>Risen gets durability. Your Risen sinks to his knees, shaking and twitching slightly as his skin darkens, thickening like leather. The ragged remains of his hair fall out, leaving the dark Grey scalp bare as his muscles bulge under his ragged cloth armor. With slight pops and creaks his bones thicken, extending and broadening his limbs and fingers. He stands confidently, bulky and powerful in his new form.>-4 corpses worth of food>Interrogate Sulamise>Inspect Wicks discovery>Feed yourself (50% way to next upgrade)
>>1660007>Inspect Wicks discoveryShow us what you've got Mr. Wick
>>1660007whistle while we work. We eat and let Wick show off the map. Then let wick and the Risen work over Sulamise, feeding him scraps of his old friends laced with vampire blood. (figure that seems reasonable considering the crowd's desire) I think we could use a new minion anyway.
>>1660042That, but also bring back the one fallen zombie, feed the rest of our lesser minions the bodies.>Ask where he came from and where is he going.>Who does he work for and where was he gonna sell his goods.>Ask if he's a rich merchant who will fetch a nice ransom if we choice to ransom his ass off.>Ask if he would be willing to sure us to his rivals so we can get more loot and gain his trust, if nothing else kill him right after we get to the place.
>Eat and let Wick show off the mapYou wave over Wick and one of the zombies, bidding the creature to bring you piles of the raw flesh. You chew idly while inspecting the crudely drawn charcoal map."There's a graveyard about two miles outside town. Looks to have been built around the same time as the town. Lots of old graves, new graves and even a few family crypts. Im thinking some of those older crypts may even have tunnels built into them. I wasnt able to stay long because they have a few guards stationed there. Probably for Graverobbers. Saw some frilly fuck in a silver and Grey robe coming out of a crypt while I was there. Gold staff, a few attendants with him. He hurt to look at. But I think we could move our base there and be able to hit the town easily and have a safe place to retreat.

Show me that you are different compared to the more generic and run of the mill cattle of the world. Show me what makes you rare."
>>1660404>>1660322I'd like to suggest that much like your mage, everything we need to know can be gained by breaking him quickly and efficiently.Furthermore, we have flesh crating now. I propose once we are done toying around, we rip soul, and then return soul. After that we have a perfectly good zombie carcass that we should probably fuse to his body....for scientific reasons. Or the ghoul, to see if we can upgrade it's durability in a more roundabout way.No point in getting cool new toys if we dont use them, and trading a zombie for a revenant is a fair deal. Though if his soul is bright enough perhaps simply eating it to benefit us may be a wiser action.
>>1660287Wait, you vote to stab a guy in the balls then talk about keeping dignity?
>>1660287Wait wait, what's wrong with getting dicked but dickin is fine? Double standards bud
>>1660540I always figured we'd just eat whoever we were seducing before we got to the screwing anyways. If we're somewhere secluded enough to screw, then why bother when we can just eat him/her then and there?
I think y'all are forgetting this guy has no gonads. Are we able to restore those to him using magic?Might be best to just eat him, unless the eunuch meme would make him into a special undead unit.Anyways, I for one want a cute human waifu who we visit at night in our attractive human form, and innocently convince her to come and become a vampire with us to pursue a life of blood and tyranny ~~~We should go into town and look for potential cuties, having a bunch of thoughtless slaves can only get our boy off so much.
>>1660685Plus, it is a given that we should recruit other vampires for our group. May as well make the first one a loveable sweetheart we can cherish and give her the first bite of each corpse
>>1660685>>1660687Agree agree and agree I like the way you think. Let's get our self a cutie once we master blood magic and make out selfs a alpha male chad thundercock.In a super sexy forma that we can maintain in sun light, we can go on dates and shit while our minions are out doing shit. We can help out drug kingpin revenant people to get addicted to drugs, find new people to go on treasure hunts to their doom and just generally get people to go get killed on the woods.>While dickin the sweet sweet human puss.
>>1660685>>1660687>>1660733Disgusting. I have a better solution, why not build up our power and have a coven of sorceresses and young witches that worship us?
>>1660815too usual imo, i'd like to be able to transform into a futa/shemale just to cock around horny villagers just to be twice bamboozled at the same time"I got a secret to tell you....i got a dick...but wait there's more....I..auhhm...vahhmpir
We could kill the guy, then reassemble both corpses into a single body. Multiple arms, legs, eyes, ears, the works
>>1661081If we can, buff his senses to the extreme. Let him be the look out that can hear a mouse running from a mile away
>>1660356gotta ask him if he is a trader, he was with a caravan so that seems like a sensible thing to ask
>>1660815no pls, we already have a bunch of undead worshippers, we need a cutiepie to confide in
please dont inject your sick fetishes into this quest, we have Anonkun for that
>>1661214very much all of this. We are playing as a soulless monster, not a socially awkward neet. I dont want to see people get discouraged for lack of interest, but the subject matter acts as a human repellent.
>>1661201What the fuck is the point of a waifu for this kind of quest? We're not fucking Vlad von Carstien just because we're a vampire goddamn it:We're an undead predator that feeds on the living for sustenance and power. We've been shown to be unfeeling and the like. Why should we even have a waifu?
>>1661201The minute people start trying to waifu random women is the minute I vote we immediately disembowel and eat her. I ain't putting up with that shit in yet another quest.
>>1661062That's going a little far there Anon, I don't like that.>>1661233I mean, why are you so adamantly against a vampire wife, I'm looking at it from a different point of view then having a cute wife. We can endow her with magics to be our official spy master to go off during the day to do things, such as inject her into high social and political events to seduce then turn people into a submissive sheep with her powers of persuasion and rhetoric with a sprinkle of magic. Basically giving us a puppet master like control over lands and people. We could make more vampire people giving them tons of blood magic so we can fill a imperial court with our kind, effectively taking over any democratic country.Plus, Haven't you heard of a honey pot? We can lure mobs of peasants to save the Damsel in Distress but really it's a ruse to get tons if corpses and souls.>Any you know, her real form can be ghoulish and be more effectiv to killing then seducing since we won't need her for any of that for awhile.
>>1661241What is wrong with just having her as a minion?
>>1661241I'd rather keep it organic anon. Also consider our resident monster is not human, or having need of human values. If anything, we have Wick who with a few upgrades would be plently able to be a socialite.One off dick stabbing, ok lol. good fun. Taking about it on the reg, it becomes annoying as fuck. Taking about needing to get pusspuss, this and that. No anons. no. If QM disagrees, cool, its his quest. However I will voice opinion. I dont want to break the theme of us collecting, exploring, and committing ultra violence.
>>1661246Alright, respectable, well put and well said. I'll concede we can continue on our dark decent into a scorn of the world.
>>1661241While agree in having a female minion for honey potting, I'm not going to go for having a waifu in this quest, it's just out of character for pur ultra-violent vampire
>>1661264I fully support this... It is completely out of character for our Vampier to have any sex drive let alone any drive for anything other than more blood(What is power but a means to an end, with that end being more blood to feast on?)
>>1661264>>1661268Yes, I could agree to this, I like it.
The point is, boys, are we really going to be the only vampire in our group? Probably not, and probably for not a whole while longer. Vampires are clearly too powerful to pass up.My logic is, therefore, the first vampire we recruit may as well have some sort of significance and uniqueness, i.e, a vampire pussy.
>>1661270anon. the nice thing about ID's is you are only 4 posts in on this thread, that doesnt matter in terms of imaginary seniority, or other social cues; what is significant is all of your posts were shit, not shit posting, including the JB picture.What is most bothersome is this is a collaberative quest, where we all work together to meet common goals, and have a good time. You seem to be hell bent on grabbing everyone by the hand and yanking them towards what is your fun time, be it from magical realm, muh lulz, or im just having fun guys; without concern or care as to what anyone else wants or feels.
>>1660685>>1661270http://www.4chan.org/rules#qst"4. Erotic roleplay is not permitted. Frequent explicit descriptions of sexual encounters by a quest author may result in mod intervention."
>>1661270He's right, having a waifu sounds like a terrible idea, especially when its pretty obvious you are just injecting your own fantasies, rather than following the theme.
>>1661273That's completely irrelevant friendo, I've been here since the beginning. The last thread cut out abruptly, and this one is fresh - if you go to the third entry, my ID is 2dCf6JCh and I've posted more since the start - there wasn't much need to in this one since everything had come at once when OP came back, and it was just selecting upgrades.That's all completely irrelevant though, and it sounds like you're asspained someone doesn't agree with you. If you look in the thread, I'm not the only one who thinks this has potential.I'm not yanking anyone anywhere, friendo, it's at qm's discretion, and he seems to be taking things mostl democratically.Kindly calm your tits and stop projecting your emotional nonsense because you're too scared of a little vampire lovin'
>>1661276>Erotic roleplay is not permitted. Frequent explicit descriptions of sexual encounters by a quest author may result in mod intervention.We have not even broached this specific topic in the story, there is nothing to indicate we have no reason for this, and I can't think it as being more 'out there' than the random organ/colon #2edgy4umonsters people come up with for the sake of it. Don't get me wrong man, I've nothing against it. We're all here to have fun, but the least you can do if you have such an aversion to this idea is present why in a way that's a bit better than an internet tantrumThe lower sentence extrapolates off the first. I'm not asking for sex scenes, cut your nonsense and if you'd like to actually have a big boy discussion I'm here for you bb
CursedQm, how big is the nearest settlement? How many people? How many men defending it?
>>1660141@CursedQM>Grave yard is two miles outside of town how far are we from the graveyard as it is now?if within reasonable proximity, would we be able to have the skeleton tunnel to it over a period of time?
So I would like to point out that the location that we are at is a good one in my opinion. No one is nearby to stumble on us by accident so, we can expand our "lair" and forces without really worrying about detection right now. We can also do the raiding alittle further away to help that. Plus we can always dig a tunnel into the sewer system or towards an opening near town if we want to be able to bring in corpses from the cemetery without any issues.
>>1662451Im actually a pretty big fan of this, though we will need to enhance our necromancy to get more skeletal workers....or...hmm@CursedQMWhat would it take for our Bonewarden to gain the ability to control it's own set of minions, specifically skeletal working crew?
>>1662487iirc he said that increasing its intelligence would end up on giving it necromancy capabilities eventually, i guess next upgrades should go into to to get ton of doots doing the home chores
>>1662547Indeed. Doots is slow, but powerful. A good home sentry, but I suspect it would take him a while to get anywhere.
>>1662585why would the wall need to move when you could just send more skelys
Is it possible to make skeleton or zombies out of beasts?I could imagine finding a bear, horse, or large type of bird and turning it into something could be a worthwhile endeavor
>>1663007i'd say that is something our minions should take care of
Hey guys. OP here. Sorry for my absence yesterday. Had a rather traumatic farm accident involving a piece of freshly clipped wire and my right eye. Spent most of yesterday in the hospital. Ill get updates running here later today but im headed back around 3 US central time

>>1663149Jesus, how's the eye man?
>>1663149get an eye patch and become PunishedQm, hope ya get better
>>1663180Doctor said i should get at least most of my vision back but it will be three more surgeries and several months of recovery.It went ALL the way through my eye. Freshly clipped wire is like a razor.

>>1663571First the firework now this..... Damn man your name is prophetic!
>>1663555I was thinking along the lines of how Skelly here can be upgraded into an absolute monster tank through bone grafting.Maybe a large skelly bird could be made into a dragon, even if dragons do not exist in this game?Horse can be made into a huge mount for usBear made even bigger and more ferocious
>>1663656it was said earlier that this wouldn't really happen since the bonewarden is a unique unit with the ability to meld bones into itself to improve

>>1665154Souls and armor, if we got more magic, perhaps enchantments or runes. In general though it would seem skeletons are expected to be workers and fodder and any work you put into a skeleton would benefit a fleshed creature moreso.If you want to see a truly unique beast, we have flesh crafting now. The ghoul seems like it is loosing what was left of its former life and mind anyway and is a good candidate. Otherwise wick has proven himself to be a formidable scout, sending him out to discover potentially worthwhile creatures could be a good cause.

>1. Interrogation is off to a rocky start.Sulamise opens his eyes blearily, blinking in the low light as he takes in your pale face ahead of him. He regards your undead minions with a detached and fatalistic sneer."What do you want? Mockery of life, I am Sulamise Qoorvos. I am not about to cut words with one such as you." He spits, his voice ragged and sweat beading on his brow from the exertion."Oh my friend... You will tell me all that you know and more. You will tell me where you are from, where you were going and where I may find more of your people. Your body may resist me at first but your tongue will eventually betray you"You hiss, a light caress down the ashen Majadins cheek turning into a painfully strong grip on his chin. "My... Tongue will eventually betray me then... It is as you say... Any man will fall before tortures with time.... As the Almighty says- if thine eye offend thee, cut it out. If thy tongue speak of dishonor, cut it OUT!"He rants with startling zeal, acting before you can even intervene his teeth come down on his tongue, a moment of shock before the lump of tissue falls to the floor and he gurgles with triumphant, zealous victory.>Sulamise rejects your interrogation and bites off his own tongue.>Kill Sulamise and create something useful from his body>attempt to heal his tongue >Consume his soul>Other
>>1666206Is there a way to create a minion with his mind still intact? Like, he'll be 100% submissive but still remembers his life before?
>>1666282Make him one of those things. Heal him with the last body plus one upgrade.

Your thralls bring you stinking armfuls of dead matter as you request it, oils on a canvas of death. With extreme caution, you remove the necklace and place it in a corner to investigate later.After a good hour of toil, it is done.You bite on your wrist, feeling the cool blood spill onto your lips, before squeezing it onto the lifeless amalgam before you. Dessicated flesh begins to spasm uncontrollably and SOMETHING makes your minions step back... could it be fear?With a guttural groan, the abominable THING lurches to life. Membranous batlike wings as big as horses unfold, gripping the dirt and hauling a writing mass of purplish-red tendons, intestines and tentacle-like structures of muscle off the ground.

>>1671126Earlier post from CursedQM:>"There's a graveyard about two miles outside town. Looks to have been built around the same time as the town. Lots of old graves, new graves and even a few family crypts. Im thinking some of those older crypts may even have tunnels built into them. I wasnt able to stay long because they have a few guards stationed there. Probably for Graverobbers. Saw some frilly fuck in a silver and Grey robe coming out of a crypt while I was there. Gold staff, a few attendants with him. He hurt to look at. But I think we could move our base there and be able to hit the town easily and have a safe place to retreat. What do you think?"The "frilly fuck" could make things interesting. Your call, though.

Carefully taking roost in the branches with the Revenant and the Ghoul, you closely examine the warriors as they approach. Each one of them bears an intricate pattern of weaving tattoos comprised of various dots and dashes... most likely a tally of kills. Leading the group is a mountain of a man peppered with scars, with curling horns on his helmet, a thick beard and a necklace of teeth of many shapes and sizes. You decide to attack him while the Revenant and the Ghoul go for the rest.>7. So much for greater undead...Gripping the underside of the bough like a coil waiting to spring, you await the perfect moment. None of them have looked up yet. NOW. You pounce towards the leader in a flurry of claws and teeth...... and are caught in his burly arms."Haha! You think we did not see tracks, grave-spawn?" Thrashing and struggling only serves to toss you both off a now panicking horse. "Feisty one - strong like bear, strong like brother Kromvig!">6. I'll say this much, you lead by example.Going off your lead, Wick and the Ghoul appear out of almost nowhere. Unfortunately their attempts are almost as impotent. The Ghoul, shrieking its rage from behind the group, succeeds only in earning itself a hefty hoof in the face. Wick has more success, however - in a flurry of blades he manages to open long crimson wounds in two of the barbarians before deftly backstepping to avoid a bone-crushing warhammer.>Two Kardiel marauders and Ghoul lightly wounded>Berserker is grappling Thrane>Roll 1d20 to escape his grip, then what do you do?

A dull thud as he throws his axe aside. A clatter as his helmet is cast aside. With a sharp rip of leather he tears away his armour to reveal a mesh of intricate, tribalistic tattoos - all glowing blue."Now you see why the world fears the Bear-Brothers of Kardielheim."With a resounding snarl he belches a thick grey smog that conceals everything within 2 metres of him, and you can't help but feel that something's... wrong.>1.

Rolled 1 (1d2)>>1677524Yeah, actually, how are you coping? Do you think you'll need counselling or anything like that?
>>1677524Yeah, he did. Cursed is like a Midwestern cowboy type.
>5. Let's see how you like itThe shock of seeing death itself barrelling towards oneself hell for leather combined with the trembling ground and ear-splitting bellows of the beast can make even the mighty freeze in terror.The bear scoops you up in titanic jaws alongside the earth you're stood on, and nothing you can remember compares to the agony and humiliation of being chewed and shaken like a dog's toy. Were it not for your gnarled hide and dense skeleton you'd be dead already - as it is your arm is broken, ribs shattered and skin torn to shreds.Cast aside by the monster, you will yourself to stand. Towering over you, the bear grins with teeth splashed black with blood. "IF YOU WILL NOT FIGHT LIKE MAN, YOU WILL DIE LIKE DOG." By now the ghoul has bled out, but Wick still stands - faithful to the end.>Ghoul has died>You are critically wounded>Wick is willing to hold off the berserker if he canWhat do you do?>Eat a corpse to regenerate>Charge! TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL!!!>Fuck this shit I'm out>Other (write in)Cursed, feel free to take control and/or retcon my stuff if/when you feel it's appropriate
>>1677747Okay, hold up, why do you always do the lowest roll? I know it's first but isn't supposed to be the best of all them?
>>1677761he rolls to choose one the rolls
>>1677761I rolled a d2 between the 5 and the 17 (in chronological order), and unfortunately the dice gods spoke.I don't want it to seem like I want to kill Thrane off - I've been here since the first thread.
Rolled 9, 19 = 28 (2d20)>>1677747Well luckily we are not the kind to care for honor, so we escape.Let Wick pester him as much as he can, his speed can let him survive long enough, after Thrane is safe, escape towards the village.Can't let them find the base
Rolled 18, 3 = 21 (2d20)>>1677881Second.
>>1677524>>1677710I had the majority of my right eye removed due to a punctured lens causing massive inflammation and a rapid infection in my orbital cavity that couldve spread along my optic nerve to my brain and killed me. They told me they could try to stop it with antibiotics and see if they worked or go ahead and remove the eye.e I told them to quit Fucking around and take my damn eye before I did it myself (shit REALLY Fucking hurt). I went into surgery early Sunday morning (3-4am) and got out of the hospital at 6-7pm. Not sure, I was loopy af from my anesthetic. Im really enjoying your take on this NotAsCursed. You really captured how Fucking ridiculous the Kardielheim residents are. Literally like Crazy Viking/Celts/Russian/Mongols. Im really enjoying watching your take on my quest and im gonna wait until you finish this encounter and we get to a pause in the story to take back over. I have a follow up appointment tomorrow morning to take a look at my headhole and change the bandages inside my head so ill likely go to bed pretty early.
>>1677712Kentucky actually but I appreciate the cowboy comparison. I actually hate horses.
>>1677984Oh shit son! I'm actually from the good ol' state of Mississippi, but recently moved to Washington. I miss it down there, it's rainy up her and everyone expects me to wear leggings, the ugly army green jacket and drink Starbucks while on an iphone cause I'm Aryan.It weird when the South is more open minded to personal freedom.
>>1677975Holy shit man, how are you holding up? You should look into getting a legit cybernetic eye, I heard pretty soon they might be able to start wiring in more senses like infrared and shit.
>>1677881>9. See you in hell, Wick.The bear's piercing glare is cut off momentarily by Wick's spindly form. "Boss! Run for it - I'll cover you!""Wwwwiiicckk... yyyyyooouuuu ccannnoootttt-""Boss, you have broken my mind, made me kill my buddies, stole my soul, killed me, brought me back to life, put my soul back and forced me to obey your every command," he interrupts with a grin. "What could he possibly do that you haven't done already?"Can't argue with that.Forcing yourself to run despite being fairly sure you also fractured a shin, you leave your only friend to trade his life for yours in mortal combat. In your escape you can hear the monster's bellows of rage and, finally, of victory.>19.You find your way to the gates of Sverelfan without event, taking momentary shelter in the hidden tunnel used by the thugs of the Black Cat and pondering your next action.For now you face a far more certain danger than a massive bear: dawn is approaching, and you are wounded and vulnerable to discovery.>And on that note I will resign control to sensei. That berserker just fucked up your whole day, didn't it? I think we have a new BBEG. It has been a pleasure to QM this masterpiece of a quest, and I thank everyone who reads this for their tolerance.>Peace!
>>1677975Wow. I'm really sorry to hear about all that trauma. I actually have a phobia of losing my vision, and I'd hate to go what you're going through. I hope nothing else comes of it, and I'm glad you're still with us.Thank you so much for the kind words, bro. I was actually really frightened about introducing anything new because it's your fluff that you probably spent ages writing, and I didn't want to mess with it. I bet you can guess I was inspired by Amon Amarth!
>>1678022The south is much more "you do you and ill do me and we don't care what the other does". Front what Ive seen and heard other regions of the country are more "conform to what we like or youre shunned because fuck you"
>>1678138I loved it and the stuff you added wasnt nearly out of the setting. Very descriptive, very fun :)
>>1678196Oh my god yeah, up in the North west everyone is so cold and passive aggressive. I'd rather have someone out right tell me I'm being annoying then speeding spreading rumours like we're in grade school. >>1678100Suck we lost Wick and the ghoul, but hopefully the graveyard raid went well
>>1678258Making ghouls is easy, now Wick is a top tier unit, we ain't losing him tho
>>1678310Wick's dead. He died so you could get away. That's what I meant by "bellows of rage and, finally, of victory." The mood changed when the berserker killed him. And you can always make another Wick, but if you die then that's it.Besides, now we have someone to boo whenever he comes on stage. If Cursed gives him a name, we have a proper villain (from our perspective).
>>1678258There was a 10 for the graveyard raid, and I'll let Cursed decide whether that's a victory or not.
Since Cursed's going to take a while, anyone want to play Wick's last stand or shall we leave it as it is?
>>1678660What do we need to roll? Any chance for him to make it out alive is good
>>1678667Let me explain what's going on in his head. First off: his life is irrevocably second to that of his master. In any given situation, Thrane's life is infinitely more valuable than his own, and that life is in danger. Given this, he has decided to hold off the berserker as long as he possibly can so his master can escape. Thing is, Thrane is gravely wounded and can't run as quickly as he normally would. Every second Wick has the beast's attention is one second it's not chasing Thrane. Ergo, he's not going to try to escape - he's going to fight with everything he's got. He is dead. Kaput. What I'm suggesting is RPing his last moments. That, or keep focusing on Thrane.
>>1678727Lets play wicks last stand
>>1679920Anyone for or against this?
Welp, there's only one vote, Cursed, do you want to handle this or shall I?
Guess I'll do it.>WickWithout turning away from the looming silhouette before you, you listen to the master's footsteps fading away. Swallowing your fear, you shout for the Kardiel's wandering attention.>Give me a good taunt, and a D20 on the side.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>1680281"You might be as hairy as your mum now, but that has`t stopped me from putting my spear into her either"
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>1680281Raspy voice: "Your head is going to look good on Masters Mantlepiece"Though I do like this taunt here >>1680294
>>1680294>12, +5 for top kek = 17. Forget steel, you can wound with words!Silently the behemoth turns towards you, eyes filled with a madness unlike anything you've ever seen. Ropes of slobber quiver as he shakes with palpable outrage.Ouch.The quiet is broken with an ear-splitting bellow of fury and unquantifiable hatred, and the bear charges clumsily towards you. Trees are bowled over and sods of earth flung high in his pursuit to crush the imbecile who would dare insult his mother.>Berserker is reckless - your rolls have a +2 bonus>1D20 to dodge, then what do you do?
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>1680360Let`s make true on our promise and spear that fool.
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>1680360dodge then stab, I would suggest climbing on its back but wick is wounded so it is a no go
>>1680465He's roughed up, but he can still climb on the berserker's fur if you roll high enough.Also, where do you guys want to stab the bear?>Paws>Neck>Mouth>Eye>Belly>Knees/Elbows>Testicles>Other (write)
>>1680607>Eyes. >Sorry, my pain meds are strong as fuck and sneak up on me.
>>1680647Second, for the eye balls my dude.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>1680647How did I know you'd pick that? XDRoll 1D20.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>1680723POKE IT
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>1680723Dice for the dice gods
>>1680814The bear thunders towards you, maw agape and blue eyes glazed over in rage. With every footfall the ground quakes, and maintaining your footing is a toil.Hold your ground.Its jaws still bear the master's blood. You never imagined you would ever see him in actual danger. You suppose you'll never have to again.Show no fear.Your only regret is that you can only save him once.Wait for it...The bear leaps towards you teeth first, its hulking form airborne for only a moment. For a fraction of a second you can smell its nauseating breath.Now.You close your eyes and lunge.>15 + 2 = 17, 6 + 2 = 8Upon landing with a mighty crash, the shapeshifter howls in pain as you ram your spear deep into his eye. Burgundy blood gushes from the wound, spattering you and the ground around you. Snarling its dismay it fervently thrashes and paws at the wound, desperate to dislodge the spear.>Berserker is no longer reckless, and is now lightly wounded>1D20 to hang on
>>1680930Fuck that. While throne knows what he heard, we can party as long as the dice let us. Any way to shove that spear into his brain?
>>1680956To do that you'd have to force that spear through a good few inches of solid bone. Thrane could do it, but since you have no strength upgrades it's not really an option.
>>1680956... well, maybe not a FEW inches, but it's still thick enough that a speed-focused revenant wouldn't have the strength necessary to ram it in.
>>1680930Well since it's still in there, pull out the spear and go for the other one. A blind giant vs a speedy trickster sounds semi-fair.
>>1681074This. If we can't poke his brain, we go the old eyes, throat, genitals route. That near will be victorious the simple fact that it chased us off.
>>1681074Okay, roll 2D20. One to avoid being crushed by his thrashing and another to stick the eye.
Rolled 6, 14 = 20 (2d20)>>1681123gotta get time somehow
>>1681123Here I come to ruin the day!"Lets make both sides match so you will be as blind as any woman who would bed you! I mean with a face like that no wonder your father never loved you!"
Rolled 4, 13 = 17 (2d20)>>1681169Wait why didnt it roll?dice+2d20 right
>>1681152>6.With a tug, you yank the spear out of the orbital bone and land gracefully on your feet. Dodging deftly under the brute's chin, you focus on the other icy blue eye. What did the dark-skinned guy say? "If thine eye offend thee, cut it out"? Well, you're feeling pretty damn-A stray paw backhands you square in the chest, and you feel your ribs puncture your lungs. You're dimly aware of flying through the air.Bouncing off the ground throws out your shoulder. A tree trunk slams into your back and you black out.Everything's fuzzy.You can feel your organs. Can't feel your legs, though.A blue light.Something dripping on your face.A horrid stench.Teeth.Then nothing.>Wick has died.
>>1681217Alright back to our main man, shapeshift into a handsome devil and try to see assistance from a kindly person or woman in the town.>But really just kill and eat them,to regain our strengthThen go over to Risen so we can see how the grave robbing went.
And on that note I will relinquish control to Cursed. I hope everyone enjoyed my section of the quest. Changing my ID to Malchemist. Ta-ta!
>>1681282You didn't do a bad job with the writing, but it felt like a huge difficulty with no warning. We went from bo3 to random of 2/3. I like that we can lose encounters, but there wasn't much of a warning on how quickly we went from fine to fucked
>>1681282You did a great job I think too, the only issue I would being up is rolling to see who's roll we take. I'd rather you take the highest unless it's like a crit 1.
>>1681566>>1681594Yeah, I'll admit I was a bit hard on you guys. The thing is, since I don't know how Cursed runs the game where we can't see (such as enemy's stats and that) I was just trying to improvise a primitive, desu pretty broken system.
>>1681780I never learn, do I?Tbh#
>>1681789Nah you're good my man. We win some we lose some.
>You are Thrane, thoroughly bitchslapped vampire lord.>Status-Critically wounded, weakened. You rest your weary back against the coo earth of the tunnel, your black blood forming a thick mud in the dust of the floor. Smearing great clawfulls of it over your wounds does a bit to relieve the pain and slow the horrid bleeding from the massive wounds.Inwardly you are just as injured, reflecting on your own recklessness that saw 2 of your most capable minions slain. Had it not been for Wicks fearless loyalty you yourself would have died to some stinking savage shapeshifter from that northern hellhole. Snatching a bloated, weakly struggling rat you gulp it down whole,its puny life force will serve to fuel a meager healing.Hissing in agony you force your body to shift, bones jerking back through the skin and crudely bonding together. Shakily, you stand and peer down the tunnel. You can no longer feel Wicks presence but you know that your living servant remains in Sverelfan. Perhaps he can assist you?>Attempt to shapeshift, wait until dusk and see if you can acquire some prey>Order Skerath to bring you some food. Or a lot of food.>Carve yourself out a hiding place and wait till dawn>Other
You know what. We are on page 8. This will not do. Ill start a new thread.
>>1682122... broski? You there?
>>1682122I am also getting concerned.... Are you alive there?
>>1688917He has a discord, check the archive a few threads back. Dude lost an eye though. Chances are he's gonna have a lotta follow-up till that socket is no longer an infection vector/ risk. Can't lie. I'm a bit concerned as well but dudes got a lot going on plus family, and we are just an anon hobby, not priority.
there is a new thread
