Hey guys, let me know when you are here
>>1713262>>1713213Do you want to see a flashback from the talk between Zoe and Lyann, or are you fine with just knowing it happened? Should we start with Eldric petting Zoe awake and then taking her home, before doing some more work instead?
>>1713350I want Eldric petting Zoe awake, maybe some interaction with the elf maids, then going to work. We still have a lot to cover with our librarian golem.
>>1713350Im ok with either.
>>1713443Watching our little sister fall asleep with a smile on her face has a surprisingly soothing effect, and at some point we wake up while still hugging her.The sun is still half way towards the horizon, letting us know we must have taken quite the nap, as the shadows of the trees are now long over the sands, and the open window makes quite the clear impression on the oppsite wall, with our own shadow added to them.Zoe is completely relaxed, hugging us with both arms and a leg as her soft, curvy body clings to us.She looks quite happy, and her ears are flat against the top of her head, with her tail laying down over her hip and thigh, completely limp.Ah, her skin's super soft and warm. We are still caressing her when her ears flicker and she starts waking up.>Wake her up gently and have her dress up before going back to Eopolis to do some work and pick up our succubus.>Take her to the beach, have some fun, then have a bath and dress her up. Take her home, then go pick up our succubus.>Other
>>1713494>>Wake her up gently and have her dress up before going back to Eopolis to do some work and pick up our succubus.
>>1713516>>1713502>>>Wake her up gently and have her dress up before going back to Eopolis to do some work and pick up our succubus."Zoe, Zoe, wake up..." - waking her up gently, we rub rub at her back from shoulder to hip"Hnnya~" - she complains softly as she tries to bury her pretty face in her big brother's chest"Zoe, wake up." We brush her hair off her pretty face, and caress her cheek until she wakes up, looking at us with sleepy eyes.As soon as she sees us, she smiles warmly and stretched to climb up for a kiss.>Kiss her forehead as we pet her ears>Give her a casual little smooch on the lips>Other
>>1713568>>Give her a casual little smooch on the lipsLet's see if Zoe tries to go deeper
>>1713568>>Kiss her forehead as we pet her earsIm not sure about this one.
>>1713568>Give her a casual little smooch on the lips
>>1713668>>1713583>>>Give her a casual little smooch on the lips>>1713621>>>Kiss her forehead as we pet her earsAs she stretches towards her big brother's face, she's surprised as he holds her and gives her a little kiss."...!?" - Zoe's eyes open wide, blinking a few times as she looks at her brother"Awake?" - he smiles kindly, and caresses her face with a hand, brushing off the hair over her face - "Did you have a good nap?"He gently rubs rubs her side, from hip to shoulder, and smooches her again."Yes!" - she answers with a wide smile- "Big brother.""Uhm?""I love you!" - she smilesAh, she's so adorable, so let's give her another kiss.She gets up, and we after her, her small feet reaching for the floor, rather than just stepping on it. As she moves off the hammock, we follow her with a lot less grace, and wash her and ourselves with a cleaning spell before dressing up.our shirt's on in a couple of moments, and as we adjust the belt back into place, notice Zoe looking at us."What is it?""Help me tie my dress?""Alright." We have Zoe lift her hands and slide down the dress down her arms and body, having to squirm and push as it gets down around her surprisingly full breasts.When did our little sister grow breasts? No, wait, she's always been like this, hasn't she? Uh. WeirdWe pick her up playfully and spin around with her in our arms, then lower her to the floor."Let's go. Don your shoes, alright?""Okay."Ah, she's back to being a good girl now that she's awake. Hm, Zoe is surprisingly (a little) spoiled when she's sleepy, let's make a note of that.We help her down the stairs from the bungalow, then [Treestride] over to the keep.>Work with Asmund and Sykia at the gun prototype>Take Sykia to help us with new engines and generators to pówer up electrical grids>OtherLets end here for tonight, and continue tomorrow, okay? please add suggestions
>>1713765>Take Sykia to help us with new engines and generators to pówer up electrical grids>Other: check on the librarian golem's progress, have Tiel tag along with the Harpies as they do Customer Service at our shipping company, see if Lyra and Squidward can help move cargo in our warehouses and work with people (to grind their social XP)
>>1715409Im finally home but i still need to have lu7nch, so we'll start in 20-30 minutes at the least. At least Im free for the rest of the day so we can continue late.Also, didnt we just talk to the automaton? Its only in like 2% of the archives and i dont think its adcvanced by even 1% of the total yet,Its a LOT of files
>>1716395It didn't tell us about its progress, either how much it has indexed or how complete its construction has come.
>>1716401Yeah you are right. I realized that while peeling tomatoes, which isnt easy at all when you're blind, you kinow?So I just washed them well, and the skin is the part with the most vitamis, right?Right?Anyway, consider that our family has been in this business for millions of years, and its no surprise its a LOT to sort through. Its only at like 2%, so the defensive wall improvements it offered us are just what was within that 2% its already checked.So, work with Sykia (And Zoe) on generators, and send Tiel to work with the harpies, right?
>>1716454And send Lyra and Squidward to help move cargo in the warehouses and work with the cargo movers.
>>1716471Why Lyra? She doesnt has extraordinary strength or anything like that. I could see Flora since she can summon/seed plants/vines to use as cranes or cargo lifters, but why Lyra?By the way, would a dragon + plant hybrid turn into a plant dragoness that can summon vines with dragon heads? Would that make plants that have a breath weapon? (Acid I guess, by D&D green/forest dragon lore?)Pic related
>>1716498I thought Fleur was still at the Jade Islands but if she's done, then yes have her move cargo with Squidward until she can speak and therefore help in the office. As for Lyra, Squidward can't exactly speak, so unless you have him carry around a bunch of sign boards or he's really good at charades, he needs a translator to speak back to the dock workers.
Nm it just ocurred to me that Lyra is there to translate between the workers and squidward.Anyway what do you think of the pic? A plant/dragon?***We [Treestride] back to the keep's garden (we can't do so to the inner garden, as apparently something our ancestors installed keeps preventing it) together with Zoe, and head up to meet with Asmund again, and pick up Sykia to have her help us in our own project.We find them in the lab proper, by a literal drawing board as they're going over some basic blueprints for guns, though it looks like they're mostly talking about ammunition."Welcome back." - says our vampire friend - "Have you come for Sykia already?""Yes, I need her help with my own projects. What are you two up to?""We agreed on a ignition system using magic rather than mechanical or chemical fuel, so the gun itself is almost solid, except for the loading mechanism." - explains Asmund"Magic is really convenient, but I'd prefer to keep its involvement to a minimum." - adds SykiaAsmund seems to agree, and explains to us how the new 'caster gun' uses a minimal ammount of the user's mana to trigger the ammunition, causing it to propel itself. In short, the 'gun' is just an aiming aid, as well as the trigger without which the ammunition is perfectly safe to handle."It shouldnt go off, even if thrown into a fire or smashed with a hammer." - says Sykia"That sure seems convenient, Are you using a gyrojet system for the ammo?""Since the [Craft] skill can reproduce an object flawlessly, it allows us to circumvent the high precision requirements for every single bullet." - Sykia nods (she said this bit in english)"Eldric, would you give her to me?" - asks Asmund after a few moments - "I can help you secure a vampire or a banshee or any other superior undead you want as a pet. She's really useful on the drawing table.">I'm sorry, but I'm keeping her>She's only my pet because its convenient to ensure her loyalty, but its not as if she's my slave. Ask her what she thinks.>Other1 - Gyrojet ammo is basically WH40K bolter rounds. Rather than the blast of the gun propelling the bullet, the bullet itself is more like a miniature rocket that pushes itself, achieving greater speeds the further it travels. It was discontinued in RL because with the tech available at the time, it wasnt possible to make every single bullet equal to the others and it was common for imperfections in the exhaust holes to cause bullets to steer wildly off course. You can read about it on wikipedia and im sure gun fan sites must have info about it.
>>1716590>She's only my pet because its convenient to ensure her loyalty, but its not as if she's my slave. Ask her what she thinks.I want to keep her, though.
>>1716590>>She's only my pet because its convenient to ensure her loyalty, but its not as if she's my slave. Ask her what she thinks.>>1716498Pic looks awesome
>>1716614>I want to keep her, though.Is more about "how do you players want Eldric's attitude to be towards Sykia" than giving her away or not.Does Eldric see her as a slave or did he made her a pet just out of neccessity? That's it.***"Ah, if you don't mind, I'd like to stay with you." - she says- "Your life seems really... interesting." - she smiles widely, her tail swinging softly in a wide circle behind her"...alright."Asmund seems rather amused- Well, he's way better than we are at reading succubus body loanguage, I guess.We talk about the gyrojet ammo and caster guns for a while. Indeed, the ammo can carry 'standard' payloads, or even spells, though their level seems restricted to the caliber of the projectile, since it needs to carry multiple magic arrays and the symbols can only be so small before they are rendered meaningless."Why gyrojets, though? Aren't they really bad at short ranges?""I was thinking of siege equipment, though. Maybe navy weapons, so a range of kilometers between weapon and target was a bit of a given. Lord Asmund liked the idea, though.""Well, I guess its fine for ammo that will cause a fireball upon contact, rather than trying to penetrate armor or whatever."Zykia nods to our words.Well, I guess the low effectivity at extremely close range is not an issue when we're talking about weapons meant to be fired at extreme ranges.Besides, I guess they're right. You can just load "fireball" or "lightning" shells if you need an impact in melee distance. I wonder if stuff like [Toad] and [Charm] can be made into ammo as well......there's no real reason why not... no, it wouldn't work with [Charm]. Who would the charmer be? The gun? the bullet? most debuffs like [Burning], [Frozen], [Slow], [Toad], [Poison] and such should be fine, though.Ah, rubber bullets plus [Sleep] would be really good as a non-lethal weapon?Anyway, let's take Sykia to our work station and work on the generators with Zoe's help.What should we try first?>Chemical source of power>Mechanical (torque into power)>Magical (mana into electricity)>Other
>>1716716>>Mechanical (torque into power)
>>1716794>>1716766>>>Mechanical (torque into power)"So you want to build a dam?""We're right at the end of the continent's largest river, but it is also the continent's main traffic route for cargo, with ships going up and down its lenght, so we can't just build a dam on it. I was thinking of something sompler, like a watherwheel linked to a generator, repeated several times... there's several waterfalls we could use in the mountains, but it wouldnt be a local project anymore.""Uhmm... I guess tidal turbines are too much to ask for? Wind power? The cannyon is immense, right? I get the impression wind up its sides must be really strong.">Dam near Albion or Opal city (the dwarves home, just in case you forgot)>Wind power on the cliffside>Watherwheels along the river>Other"Regardless, once we show them how to turn a wheel into power, I am sure this world's scholars will pick up the idea and adapt it for themselves."
>>1716848>>Wind power on the cliffsideMan, we should buy a chocolate elf for our harem.
>>1716874well we technically have quite a few in the island manor. I guess we can just ask if one wants to turn adventurer, unless you want something more plot-driven, in which case maybe we can add one of Aritsu's friends once we're in her realm arc
>>1716848>>Wind power on the cliffside
>>1716902I meant in the sense of acquiring her as a sex slave, and that she willingly embraces the role. While we have plenty of beauties at our manor, we haven't even groped one let alone stripped one in the middle of a hallway and had our way with her.
>>1716929Well, we could get Aritsu tanned I guess? We do own a tropical island, remember?Plus applying tanning oil and making her go nude seems fun on its own right. Besides most ppl seems firmly against the lewd bits most of the time. I think anon likes sweet and cutesy romances the most.Also im a bit surprised about you guys wanting wind generators... well I guess we'll have to back them up with a battery system for the moments where theres no wind?Generators -> battery -> userThat way the electric capacity remains stable wether the wind is super strong or weak for a couple of hours and we won't have energy spikes in either direction
Alright, having decided to build some wind-powered generators on the cliffside, we need to design the generators, capacitors, batteries, etc that will make the infraestructure, as well as decide on the building site.Ideally, we would built the generators right under our feet, but as this will likely become a fighting zone soon, its probably for the better if we remove them slightly, so a couple of miles upriver would be best.For workers... maybe we could use the honey faeries? I mean, they can fly and are already used to building on the cliffside, so no matter how you think about it, they will be the best at it.Probably.I wonder if we should have some of the smarter harpies supervise... well, the honey faeries have their own architects and such, so maybe its like placing a smart 12 years old in charge of grownups?Theyve grown smarter since they started interacting with people, but ... maybe no.We'll need to educate some honey faeries about electricity and mechanical principles, though.>Do it ourselves>Leave Sykia in charge>Other
>>1717054>Leave Sykia in charge
>>1717054>>Leave Sykia in charge
>>1717164>>1717116And with that, we decide to have Sykia teach the local honey faeries about math and engineering.Well, is not as if we want them to get a college degree right away, but it will definitively help them in the construction."Big brother, what about me?"Right, if we had gone with a magical generator, we would have needed Zoe to help us with it, but that's over with now."Uhm! I love Zoe, so it's fine!""Eh? I'm not really sure what is fine, but I'm happy~!" - she says while blushing brightlyLets pet her head. There, there, she's a good girl.Well, let's head back home and drop Zoe at home, pick up Lyann, and bo back to Alquia.Ah, by the way, we're bringing a honey-dipped jar of fruit to Mako as a souvenir.***As we walk back into Mako's room, we find that she is sitting on the floor in front of a low table, reading a pile of documents. No, more like reading documents from one of many piles.Did she bring the table from Mantequira? It doesn't look local."Eldric, welcome back!" - she greets us from her spot at the table, and heads over for a kiss.Of course we kiss her. So tasty."I'm back." - we reply after the kiss"Lyann, welcome back," - she kisses Lyann too"I'm back..."Hn. That's good. I want them to get along like that. Yup, seeing two super pretty girls kiss is nice. Definitively.Ah, it woke up our child right away, even though it was just a little 'welcome home' kiss. Let's try and control ourselves for a bit.That's good. Calm and controled mind. A clean spirit."Eldric, welcome back." - says Aritsu as she comes into the room from the bath, wearing a fluffy looking, super short robe that covers her down to beginning of her thighs.This elfie is to blame. Her shapely figure, fresh off the bath. The way her golden hair sticks to her, and the glow of fresh, wet skin.What? You say its our fault for giving her such a small robe? Nonsense, it is clearly her fault because reasons. Yup.That's why, we had to thoroughly train her all night long. It is a good thing we had such a nice nap.The next morning its a sunday...>Lets take the girls to the beach>Lets do some extra work and look for a nice spot for the generators in Eopolis>Other
