Now I'm standing in front of them, trying my best not to sweat due to the morning's heat and the pressure I'm facing right here. But even though doubt and nervousness fill my head, I can't help but to smile as the men of Carolton look at me, like they're waiting for me to speak again as a few of them walk past me.Glad they listened to me, because they were about to march off without their torches and pitchforks, which would've made this just so much worse for them than it already is. Trying not laugh, I swallow hard and stand up straight doing my best to look dignified. Good thing I'm wearing a nice robe and a breastplate made from polished gold.Erret runs up to my side, staring at the ground to keep her face hidden as Black, Steve and Oda walk up with me."What cowards aren't joining us?" A man with greying hair asks, glancing back at the players still in town watching this spectecal "Don't they know what will happen if we don't nip this corruption at its bud""Maybe they think the magician's apprentice was lying?" A fat bastard says, glaring at me "I mean, Jonathan, you knew Velk and his family better than anyone in"The bearded man from before lowers his eyes, standing at the front of the pack as he crosses his arms."I thought I did, but....liar's don't get as impassioned as she does" He says slowly, dread and anger building up in his voice "And if she is lying, we all know the punishment for lying about heresies" I swallow hard, and Erret steps forward....she doesn't say anything but I guess she wants to protect me. Now I'm really glad I made her my servant."But you said it yourself" Oda says with a nervous chuckle, trying to sound confident and cool but failing miserably because he's a weeb "Why would she be so impassioned if she was lying""Maybe she wanted to just rile us up" fatty says as the crowd begins to talk among themselves like a bunch of gossiping bitches."No, her voice had the fury of the gods....besides we've all tasted the rot in the air""But how would she know it was the anitstans?""She's a magician's apprentice, they know things us farmers don't""Yeah, but she was right the mayor never even tried to ease our fears....he's been trying to hide this...maybe he's in on it to? a man ruined to the soul...you've seen how fat he is""Bah, he's just an incompetent pig, he only cares for his own meals, not us....but he ain't evil""still she could be lying...see the thing walking by her hip?""To acuse her, is to accuse Cornibus...he's a man of honor and good spirit""But how did she know?""Never though Velk would turn to sheep and beasts when his wife looked like...that""Some men have taste like Scum""Tastes like goblins more like it"
>>1863000"Velk was a good man how could...""Men can lie, and if the beastkin girl talks the truth then....well we have to burn away the filth him and his family have invited onto their land and ours""She doesn't talk like a nubbly warbler"And that's all I can make out as the men argue among themselves, but stay were they are in one massive blob of bodies. God I hope this mob doesn't break up because of a few people getting time to think about what's going on, because as much as I am doing this just because I want and leading a mob sounded fun. THERE IS ALSO A RANCH FULL OF MONSTERS A SHORT WALK OUT OF TOWN. And I don't want to be here if it starts to leak. I want to enjoy myself a bit and what better way to start than actually leading a bunch of hicks in an inquisition style burn and purge?You know besides risking my and their lives. but hey! better than just me going along...and they practically jumped at the chance to do it.I trace the edge of my tail through the dirt, slowly wrapping it around my side as Black steps forward by Oda who seems to be trying to make heads or tails of what the mob is saying.Now what do I say next? they're getting a little antsy and I don't want to look like a little brat who just cried wolf and"Hey, stop acting like women! weren't we going to kill some monsters? what's the hold up here?"Black sighs impatiently "did I get all fired up for nothing?" "He really has no sense does he?" Erret says, lifting her hood to look at the hotblooded idiot"Your courage is admirable boy" Jonathan says dully, looking like he wants to laugh but just can't and I can get why "but without weapons, we're marching to our death even with a magic user with us and what use would us throwing our lives do?""Nothing" steve says under his breath"Give others time to flee?" oda suggests"Only would feed the taint" Erret says grimly, Jonathan and the other men look at her like she just insulted themAlright, I need to talk now and use my skills at making people salty and mad again before they do anything to my loyal servant!Clearing my throat, I step forward onto the muddy path. A few leaves fall as the wind starts to pick up and howl in a wonderfully foreboding way What do I do? Cement my command over the mob just get them mad and let them run wild "Explain" how I learned of what was going on on the farm Defend erret form a plan with Black, Steve and Oda See if any other players want to join the "fun" Push away the remaining suspicions by calling them cowards Confuse them with magic mumbo jumbo so they don't ask me anymore questions 1d20+learning  Save the mayors bacon ask where the town guard are? write in

Also, I got most of the basics down for the character I would play in Da'ta, so that's cool I guess.

>>1863001>All right all right, so the mayor may not be the worst person in the world, so what if I was wrong about the mayor, the important thing is do you all want to die one by one on your farms or do you want to take care of the very real monsters out there, which was the whole point of this! >Call them cowards and throw in some classic insult art. Make sure they get moving, /now/.
>>1863070Yes, among other things like axes and old bladesand yes>>1863082Oda or steve, as the former is 1 level thief/ 1 level assassinbut the latter has more health and can't stealth
Shoot, I need to reread some things to see if it's worth saving the mayors bacon.
Hmm, not sure. Erret smelled taint in the air, but I'm not sure what it could mean.
>>1863001 "Explain" how I learned of what was going on on the farm Defend erret form a plan with Black, Steve and Oda See if any other players want to join the "fun
"She isn't wrong" I say sternly, raising my shield slightly to cover my chest as I put my hammer over my shoulder and let it rest there "rushing in without any weapons will just give the darkness that's fallen over the farm more toys to play with. She just has a....unique way of phrasing it. But she isn't lying, if everyone of use dies there and can't burn away all the filth and badshit that's made its home over there, then well....its over to be blunt""Funny how you could speak such venom earlier, but leap to the defense of a tainted" Jonathan says bluntly "Odd how your passions show themselves, but magic users are always strange""Yes, yes we are" I say nodding, smiling widely and trying not to flash my trademark grin, since that'll kill any chance I have of them actually trusting me and not thinking I'm just trying to stir up shit "Kind of in the job description, but we notice things other people don't, especially farmers. I know its a hard pill to swallow, but your friend is dead or worse, even if you think I'm lying about his and his family's eh, tastes"The Jonathan dude just lowers his head, scratching his beard as I cross my arms."You've all been idle and letting this cr...sickness spread, you wanted to imagine everything was going wonderfully" I say calmly "when you couldn't be more wrong, But I think you knew that, all of you just didn't want to think of the worst possible outcome. And yes taint is pooling up around this town but I can assure you Erret isn't the cause of it. if she was we'd be having this problem years ago"There's some mumbling, as my loyal servant smiles and glance up at me, her eyes actually having some kind of light in them now."Arguing isn't going to help anything, and neither is going in like you just found your wife with another man, sure anger is good, sure it'll probably help you kill the monsters sitting in the farm, but I only made you angry so you'd stop lying to yourselves and quit listening to the mayor's panicked pleading that nothing is wrong around here"Clapping my hands together, I hunch over and try to look as innocent as I can."So all of you, including you black need to calm down and clear your heads, before you end up dead because of it" I say happily "Stay mad, but don't go insane. Also don't rush off! none of you know what you're running towards, but I do! I know what's waiting for us and I know exactly how to keep us all from dying horribly, so follow me unless you want to march right into your grave""But can't we just" black begins before I swing my hand towards him"Wait, you're being bloodthristy" I groan "What kind of anger issues do you have that are making you so impaitent""I don't have any" He tries to say, looking confused before I turn away from him with a huff"Well then, wait....shouldn't take them long to scrounge up some kind of weapons for our...." I say thinking off how to make these folks like me more "Tiny crusade"cont
>>1863152Awesome as always Draw Friend.
>>1863146So, the villages are going to look for some weapons? Guess we have time to look for more players then.Also would be a good time to use our glasses to check out the mayors house at some point.
>>1863169Many thanks to the CU
>>1863146And like that their grimaces and frowns turn into proud and in some cases smug smiles"Well I wouldn't call this a crusade, its a mob don't hide what it is" Oda says shaking his head "crusades aren't led by fear"And he's played into my hand."Oh but neither is this! its led by anger and rage, holy...divine wrath" I say, rubbing my hands together as my tail begins ot wag "They aren't afraid, they're just mad that they've been letting this cancer fester for so long and...wait where are the town guard"One of the men growls"Well this explains why the mayor has them keeping watch only in his house and the gate nowadays" one of the mob hisses angrily as the members that broke off to find stabby things come back holding pitchforks, axes, old swords and even knives. Some are holding hastily made torches and pots of oil.I can hear crying behind me as one of them pulls himself free of his son's arms, his wife watching with a hopeful but scared look on her face.I bite my lip and try to put on more airs of knowing what the hell I am doing right now."Anyone left with....bravery and valor in your hearts?" I say as sternly and with as much authority as I can, hopefully the other players can see that I'm asking for THEIR help in my eyes.the Iron wall girl just shakes her head and the other players make themselves scarce.Ah you bastards"Cowards" Jonathan hisses, glancing at me with a bit of respect now."Can you blame them?" Oda says quietly"Fine more fun for us!" Black shouts confidently, putting his hands on his hips"What have I gotten myself into?" Steve asks no one in particular"A gamble that could lose your very soul' Erret squeaks, looking a lot more twitchy and nervous now"Ill omen traveling with a tainted, especially now""Shut up, she's coming with us, she can smell the stuff so she'll do well in keeping us from....well you know" I say with angry scowl "Also, we need to have a plan of attack here"I glance back at black, steve and oda"Any ideas?" I say motioning my hands towards them, hoping they get what I'm trying to ask them"Oh! I'll be in the front line!" Black shouts happily as I sighWell what's the plan? I lead from the front I stay in the back to sling spells Set up a "Spear" wall, and keep the people with the crappy weapons in the back split the mob into two groups and attack the ranch from two sides Form the mob into groups depending on what "weapons" they have Tell them to cover what arrows they have in oil.write in>>1863152Nice!

>>1863190Thanks hm ^^>Stay to the side, but near the front, safe enough to cast spells or run away if need be, but still close to the front enough to lead, and be a visible support. >Keep mob together, less likely to lose men, I should think.

Then fall back if we need to use the mad swordsman.

"No" I say shaking my head, that idiot will end up dead and I don't want that hanging over my head if he just rushes in....or he'll bloody curse and...ergh don't want to see what that's like in REAL da'ta. That'll complicate things, and certainly make it harder for me and everyone else. I raise my hand to shut him up before he starts, and then clap my hands together and nearly hide them in the sleeves of my robes"Well, I have a plan that I think we can work on" I say glancing from oda to the crowd "First off we'll need to have some kind of order to this, so anyone with swords clubs or cleavers group up, anyone with knives group together....everyone with pitchforks, scythes and spears group and try to find anything that can function as a shield, even the top of a barrel will do. Anyone with bows, crossbows or even rifles, stay together"Thank god I managed groups back when this was a game, even if it was mostly to raid and raise other people's homes for a laugh. I giggle at the memory and quickly capture my seriousness again""Alright" I say nodding, smiling as the mob slowly begins to cut itself up as the men choose their weapons of choice....Hmm, the ones with the swords grab them up rather quickly, guess they must be family treasures or something "Good, good. So to make this easier to give orders, the first group will be called the soldiers, the second the brawlers, the third the wall, and the last the hunters. Understood?""Its a simple plan" Jonathan says"Good thing I'm actually a hunter""Well, seems like I'll be in the thick of it with a name like that""Hound...please watch over me, warlord bless me this day" A man murmurs in prayer, most of the mob joining with him. Erret pushing her hands to do the same, but not saying a word"And you three, any ideas to add to mine?" I say smugly as Oda nods"Yes, we'll need to keep the archers safe and on high ground" He says calmly "maybe sneak a force in from the side....set up an ambush somehow or""I'm going with the soldiers...is that alright, commander" Black says, sounding like he's annoyed I'm trying to keep him alive but him"I'm staying with you and...no I suck at rts" Steve says quickly as I nod"Alright, so the wall will move first as its name imply. So you'll meet the beasts first and hold them at bay" I say walking forward "the soldiers will stay close behind and attack any that break through the wall or charge forward when I give the call. Marauders....you'll be used as needed, but for now stay in the back and if I tell you to hunker down, you will....Hunters"I pause for a moment"Hunters will dip their arrows in oil, I shouldn't need to tell you why" I say glancing at them as they nod"Fire burns away the shade of sin" One of them says....quoting straight from one of the ingame books"...Yes it does" I say smiling, nodding as I tighten my grip around my hammer, the wind wailing louder and growing colder as Erret shiverscont
lol at first I thought we were calling Erret 'hound' as her special group nickname, that would have been so cruel lol
>>1863289"I can smell it on the wind now"She says quietly as I frown and feel my spine shiver and my fingers tingle."So we'll need to get a move on it then" I say, trying to sound inspiring and confident still but even I can hear my voice wavering a bit "Besides the general formation, half or so of the hunters will go with Oda to the hill above the ranch! he's the foreigner to my left""Don't fuck this up" I hiss under my breath as he walks forward"Oh trust me, I am not planning on it" He says, sounding nervous "I know what will happen if we fuck up here""Yeah, we'll all die or have things done to us that makes isis look like peaceful protesters" I murmur before I clear my throat and continue "Soliders, keep Black in line....the name should tell you who he is, and make sure he listens to order""Killjoy" He huffs, walking forward"Hey, she's trying to keep you alive" Steve sighs "I'll go with him Belua""Master...where will we be?" Erret asks curiously"the creature brings up a good point" Jonathan says bluntly "Where will you stand?""With the wall" I say happily "I'll be leading us after all, its only fair since i"m risking all your lives"And Kind of want to be in the thick of the fight myself actually, it sounds so exciting! imagine how chaotic it'll be up there! if I wasn't potentially risking my life I'd be giddy right now!"So we'll follow you then?" He asks as I nod.I nod, not saying a word as I walk forward "Where else would I be?"they begin to march behind me, as I keep my eyes locked down the road walled by overgrown trees, some packed so close together it turns into a tunnel. I think I can smell blood under all the mud and its getting darker with each step I take.But just looking behind at the little army I've mad, I get every bit of my confidence back. Yeah, not alone. Not marching into hell by myself...I've got an army behind me. I'll be fine. This isn't going to kill me"Master, be careful. taint...It reeks of taint down this path" Erret says, tapping her scythe on the ground "Be careful, one as kind as you need not share my curse"I nod, noticing how the air grows stagnant and dead, almost slimy. Its as cold as ice now, and there's not a sound besides the marching of boots, crushing of twings and the distat wails of the wind and....maybe something much worse.the trees begin to look sick, weeping red sap out of their pale white bark, strange twists and growths jutting out of them like tumors. the mud dries up and turns wetter on different parts of the road. The metal fences on the sides of the path are rusted.I stop, as old gate creaks open and nearly makes me throw up my heart. The smell of oil and fire becomes overwhellimg as I swallow hard, and stare up into the overgrown vines and hanging branches covered in black leaves coated in a fine purplish white powder.cont
>>1863362"Anitstan homestead" A sign reads, hanging limply in the wind....I try to ignore the pool of blood I've walked by during this quest a million times before.Funny how this got a whole lot more serious now that its real, huh? Pressing my hand against my head, I summon my headphones and set them to low so I'll be able to hear what's going on without having to focus on anything to horrifying.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkNt8_aMcXk-God why is this song in my playlist! Well I hope it isn't prophetic.turning around, I see the wall of farmers behind me, with Black and steve right behind them with the soliders.Oh they're waiting for my orders! that is so cool but also kind of crushing with how much responsibility I have now!What do I do march through the gate, and continue on send a scout through first tell them to wait here, and go forth my self Erret, can you sense if we have company behind that gate Order a few of the brawlers/ marauders to stick around here...in case anything runs tell them to leave two pots of oil here put on my second sight glasses Give an inspiring speech? write in>>1863254fitting>>1863336Oh I love this

>>1863466This sure would be hilarious if this is still just a game. Lot's of villagers to farm decent weapons from.
"Erret" I say, pulling my backpack around to my front so I can did through it "Can you sense if we have company behind that gate"She slowly looks over the gate, like she's glancing past it as she leans on her scythe. She tilts her head, her nose scrunching up as a worried look runs over her face as her eyes remain as dim as they are. She pulls her scarf up as the wind picks up again, and the branches scraping against the metal gate begins to sound eerily like something climbing over them."There's the stench of taint all around" She says slowly "But most of the pull is coming from beyond that gate...so yes, I would assume danger lurks behind it""Perfect" I say in an almost sing song way as I put my special glasses on, trying to ignore black as I put my backpack back around and....oh my god. So that's what taint looks like on the air, like a black fog? god the trees are glowing with the stuff. And....what's that mist rising out of the blood puddle. Okay this is creepy as hell. And what's that burning orb just floating there.Well I'm not taking them off, even if they look silly! they might save my life after all."Alright men" I say, turning back around to face them....stopping myself from banging my shield with my hammer don't need that much attention "form up and march behind me, we continue on. Follow after me"Oh I always wanted to say something like that."If your instincts tell you to strike without my orders, do so. But don't be re...fucking idiots, I know none of you have any combat experience but don't just listen to me, follow my orders but do whatever you must between them" I say as calmly as I can, try to hide my building fear with a profesnial tone "because we are marching into the closest thing any of us has seen to hell, we have to be smart and we have to be strong. You're farmers, you work the land! So you already have the brawn, find the brains and we'll get through this. Know we're doing the will of the gods right now, they're watching us! DO YOU WANT THE GODS TO THINK YOUR A BUNCH OF STUPID HICKS?!"Erret looks up at me as I bite my tongue. Should not have yelled! I got too into character there!Something moves behind the iron walls, clanging them as its drags itself through the dried grass outside of it.The vines shift and...and I have one question. What the hell is that gurgling sound?!!!Swallowing hard, I take another step forward. Dust blows in on the wind, carrying that slimy feeling from earlier and the stench of rotting meat and wet dog.I don't remember zombies being here. And I know I didn't put any here.

Alright, lets see how my magic works now! Hope its the same it was when this wasn't really, because it'll be a lot less fun and useful if I have to chant and dance around just to zap some zombies or whatever with it.Holding up my hammer, I wince as my hand begins to tingle and feel like someone is stabbing needles into my bones. It pass in a moment though, as small arcs of electricity run out of my fingertips, palm and even a few of my scales.It runs to the head of my hammer, making it smell like a thunder stone or burnt out wire as it begins to spit out the same lighting that's running out of me. I feel my mana draining as the head of my hammer turns into a ball of yellow light."Oh that's badass!" I can't help but squeal as I swing it down, tossing the orb of zap down into the opening ahead of me.-15+2= 17!+ success!295 magic points left-There's a loud crying, screech that sounds like a sick cat mixed with a dying eagle. My stomach tightens and so does my ass as it slowly tapers into a gurgle And then what was making that noise plummets to the ground, hissing and growling as it struggles to stand, its limbs twisted back like they're broken....made out old wooden sticks jammed through flesh and tanned leather. I step back, as I see what's hanging off its back.A inky black figure, thats dripping down into the hole where this things spine should beI know what it is to!Wandering Scarcrow. Weak as hell, and especially weak to fire!It cracks its head around and lops towards me, charging as a thousand more screams fill the night air"THE TAINTED HELL IS THAT!" someone screams"Necromancy" Erret says, sounding disgusted and taken abackWhat do I do?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqZq7i2msvQ-"HUNTERS!" I scream as I begin to taste smoke on my tongue, my blood burning in my veins as my headphones change the song and did I leave this thing on random?! "OPEN FIRE, TURN IT INTO A PIN CUSHION!"Fuck! its already leaping towards me! scythes breaking through its wrists as its beartrap mouth opens wide to bite onto my head and crush it like a grape! I step forward, my heart thumping in my chest as the japanese screaming in my ears starts sounding nice and gives me a bit more energy!Fire pours out of me in a burst, like a bubble just got popped over me and left me feeling cold. The thing breaks its legs trying to escape, its dried up skin burning to cinders as it struggles to flee.Only for it to get shot down and filled with holes. the vines start to burn away, screeching as they spew a wine like liquid, and a few scarcrows thud off the metal tunnel."Gooood work!" I shout, panting from the excitement as my tail whips aroundThen, comes the sounds of hell! as every monster nearby comes screaming for the tunnel, or tries to rip it apartwhat do I do? call for a charge 1d100 HOLD HERE, WAIT TILL YOU SEE THE WHITES OF THEIR EYES 1d100 Erret, work your magic 1d100 Hunters, get ready!

"Oh!" I shout, laughing as it washes away the fear that's trying to swallow me up like a massive wave "they took the BAIT"I grin, razing up my shield as I smack my hammer on it, ringing the "dinner bell" So to speak to bring them all to this kill zone. And come they do, I can barely make out what's running towards me but I can just make out cow like shapes with jaws drooping down to the floor filled with twisted and hooked teeth...more Scarcrows and starved looking bodies shambling behind them."HUNTERS!" I shout as loud as I can, raising my hammer into the air "GET READY! SOLDIERS, after they fire CHARGE FORTH!"I lower my self, lashing my tail around as I back up, the shapes becoming clearer as mutants and zombies walk up to the gate, reeking of blood and something disgusting that I don't know the name of!.One of the scarcrows rushes towards me sprouting smokey wings. It unfurls its "Claws" and gnashes its bear trap mouth. But before it can hit me, Erret pulls it down with her scythe and I slam my tail across its stomach.Being pushed back against the scythe nearly cuts it in two, spraying a moosh of cotton and meat everywhereThen, chaos. The monsters charge forward and I can barely scream my command before they get to me."BURN THEM ALL, KILL THEM WITH FIRE" I shriek, as burning arrows fly over my head, nearly hitting me and Erret. I duck down for a second out of survival instinct, and see a few slamming into the walls or dirt. But there's enough in the air to at least hit a few of the monsters, who shrieks, bellow and bray as the tunnel splits in two and begins to fall away from me.Then, right as I start choking on smoke and the blazing heat around me, the solider group charges led by Black and steve"FUCK YEAH, GETTING A BURGER TONIGHT" he yells happily, giggling as steve runs after "IDIOT! WAIT!" he yells as Erret groans"Don't eat them! they're tainted!" she yells as she looks up to meI nod, and step forward to join the charge as a furred snake with two cow heads slithers toward me with a strange shadowy figure sitting on its back.Screams fill my ear and I realize I'm in the middle of a battle now.And people are dying.What do I do? take it down with Erret 2d100 Try and keep that retard from getting himself killed 1d20+strength Try to crush the cows skull 1d100 Summon acid rain above the monsters 1d20+magic -30mp Throw another lighning orb out 1d20+magic -25mp rush forward, and slam a lightning orb into something 1d100 -25mpMarch up with the wall 1d100 throw my bottle of oil! 1d20+str write in

This is completely unrelated but I thought you guys might be interested in having these/having a look at these since we're all HM quest peeps. I happened to use May as my subject to do a few method studies for myself the other night, and a bit today too. So here are some of the ones I liked. Note, I do realize I almost never draw her horns, in fact, I don't draw the big ones ever in this study just cause, it would be too much of a pain to try and not have them overlap her facial features when trying to do different angles.
>>1863845>>1863833Boom you Tainted fuckwits! >>1863853Very cool Draw Friend
>>1863852That reminds me. I think Erret would make a good summoner/contractor, with her necromancer ability which I'll pretend allows her to call helpful souls and spirits to fight.
>>1863853I was trying to see which method produced the best results for drawing straight ahead (with no under drawing, no guide lines etc..) I almost always draw that way here on our threads (with no guides or under drawing) - but when I really want something to look good, like say I was doing a drawing for a comic, like most artists I do construction or plot out some perspective or etc. underneath.I'd actually be interested in which heads you guys find the most appealing/like the best so I could maybe get an idea for which methods were working better than others... but if not that's cool. Not meaning this as a derail or anything.
Everything becomes hazy, and the screaming and disgusting, ear piercing shrieks get drowned out by my own heartbeat and breathing. The smoke chokes me and the sparks from the fire burn my eyes as they fill my vision. Shaking my head, there's only one thing I can think to do."Erret we're killing that thing" I say lowering my voice as she just nods "its the biggest monster here and there's something riding on its back"I know what that thing is to, a shade of sin, one of the harder mobs in this area. Mostly because of their horrendous debuffs and summons. Loved kiting poor fuckers into them."Understood, I can sense its presence as well, its turning the air itself sour" She says, as she pulls her scythe out of the scarcrows back "Good call my master! that monster would wreck havoc lest we do something to it"-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uu2XSQgdQDY-the song in my headphones changes to one of my favorites to grief to as I begin to rush towards it, running past a man struggling to push a scarcrow off of him, yelling curses and actual curses at the thing as me and erret run past him."And that's my job" I whisper, as I see black get tossed back by a tall, tree like monster with flesh growing through its back."What?" Erret asks as we run by it, drawing its attention before steve slams an axe into its chest."NOTHING FOCUS!" I roar as the cow hydra whips around towards it, diving at us....with fangs as long as fucking butcher knives dripping with grey mucusy bullshit "AND FOLLOW MY LEAD"I swing my hammer as hard as I can, Erret running under the monster as I do so. Its horn and skull crack, one of its eyes getting squashed by the force of my blow. It moos at me, sounding like someone played a corrupted soundfile of a cow at me. But that head shuts up as Erret rises up, bending backwards in a painful angle as she swings her scythe up, grasping it with bother her hands.Then that head falls limp, warm blood spraying as Erret throws herself over me, getting coated in the stuff"NO, CAN'T LET IT TOUCH YOU, IT CARRIES TAINT IN ITS BLOOD!" She yells as the rest of the beast flies over us, slamming down as the dying head moos pitifully as it finally fucking dies from a broken neck brough on by whiplash.the shadows stands up, and realize it can see me as the blood covered girl gets up off me and helps me up. And the second the dark figure realizes I'm looking at him it raises its hand towards meroll 1d20+ will
>>1863871Personally, I like the top right, top left, and bottom right drawings the most, I think it's how you did her horns and the bolder lines.

And the second it raises its wispy finger at me, I freeze because there's a new voice in my head, whispering through all the noise and haziness hanging around up there now. It sounds and feels like oil that's been mixed with glass and razor blades.*What is your vice child? what tastes push you away from the gods, what desires and whims make you wander from the light of the fire's edge towards the dark skies of the night? What rot was left in your heart at birth! what vileness did your parents let fester within your mind! Every man, every woman has sin within their heart waiting to be known on their flesh! So tell me CHILD what vice is lurking within your chest? Let it be known! indulge in your vice! SHOW THEM WHAT LIES BENEATH THE FACADE OF NOBILITY"And my mind comes up with the answer instantly, as everything else stops for a second due to the magic rushing forth from the shadow man. Two great hands trying to pry open my chest....that's what I see it as-20+0= crit success-I grin as the shadow shrieks in confusion and rage, my laughter raising above the chaos of the battle as I stare it down, glaring into its eyeless face as my lipsHavoc and mayhem! destruction and pain, I think, while I giggle, I love being in the center of it you know, it makes me feel alive! The rage and looks of pain on others face is just so funny! I can't get enough of it! its so tasty and sublime, pissing people off and causing madness like this! *...What manner of human are you?!*GRIEFER BITCHand with that, the oiling feeling leaves my head as the shadow recoils and erret gasps in awe, looking ahead at what she can't see-Sadie/Belua has been buffed! gaining a massive boost in morale and energythe shade of sins spell has failed!-"You dumb fucker! you think you're pathetic magic can fuck with me! COME ON STOP SITTING UP THERE LIKE A PUSSY!" I yell laughing "What? Scared of some farmers and a girl in a bathrobe! you're supposed to be the manifestation of sin....but I guess you're just the avatar of limp wristed faggots"and then, it really appears and shows it self to all of my soldier men"What the fuck is that?" Black asks as two men help him up"DEVILRY!" Jonathan screams, one of his eyes closed and covered with blood "A DEMON SHOWS ITSELF, DO NOT FALTER, IT WILL TAKE YOUR SOULS IF YOU SHOW FEEL""You will learn to respect the deviance of man, whelp" it says, as the snake cow's teeth grow, its skull growing through its face "as your little pet has already""You...you resisted the pull of sin, Lady Belua" Erret says, looking lost in happiness "Your heart is unmolested and pure as ever! MY MASTER YOU ARE AMAZING"No its just that my sin isn't one this idiot knows.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJMWRJDKg5s-cont

She asks as I run forward "Wait master, don't underestimate it! You might've been able to overpower its magic, but something like this isn't so easily cowed!""Ahaha, maybe, but its burning mad!" I say happily as its snake cow strikes at me, and I raise my shield. Everybone down my arm shudders as it bites into the metal and shakes it violently but I can't help but giggle."Fool, learn your place! BENEATH THE HEEL OF YOUR INSTINCT" the creature roars"The warlord's rage burns in the girl's....Belua's heart! Follow her example! FIGHT, KILL, DIE. FOR OUR FAMILY, LANDS AND SOULS!" Jonathan screams"Trying!" Steve says "Hey bro you alright? You just got tossed in the air!""My....my head hurts" Black groans "But I can still fight""Follow the girl's example!" the farmers yell in a chorus as the shadow slides through the air at me, flipping around as its legs turn into a flowing tailI grin at it and laugh"My only instinct is crushing smug assholes like you" I say, swinging my hammer at him. His shadows splatter and then"AAAAAAH!" I yell, burning pain digging into my cheek as I barely avoid the shadow ripping my eye out with its claw. I wince, as it drags me to the ground, burning blood flowing down my cheek as I reach for it.-300 hp left-"Pride before the fall" it sneers, its lower half turning into roots and tentacles that spread over me "Now too take your heart with""YOU SCUM! GET OFF OF MY MASTER" Erret yells, her voice sounding nearly inhuman "BELUA I AM COMING FOR YOU""Oh, the girl of weak heart, why do you follow her? to lower her to your level?" the thing cackles "let me remove that pesky morality in your"Erret leaps into the air, the light of the fire dying around her as her scythe begins to drink in the color around it, and her veins bulge, turning a darker black as they cobweb down her pale face."My only sin is curiosity" She replies flatly as she swings her scythe down, "and you shall take nothing, for I am stealing your life"The rusted blade cuts through the darkness crouching on my stomach, bisecting and snapping it in half as she lands next to me, dust and embers filling the air. Her cloak blows behind her"Soooo coool" I whisper under my breath, my chest starting to feel warm as a smile spreads over my shaking lips. Well I can't let myself be undone.I stand back up as the shade flows off of me like oil, releasing me with a hiss"Tainted whore, your soul is lost" It hisses at us as I pick my hammer back up and glare at itcont

>>1864290 Yeah, it's in the character sheet. Or some of it is… I don't remember how much.
I would say how disappointing it is to be hugging the stranger default girl, but the games backstory has a better augment than you guys would.
"Man, you're pathetic" I say, licking the blood dripping down my lips as I shoot the shadowy bitch a disdainful and haughty look "You're losing control so you try to hurt a girl's feeling. She might be tainted, but we both know that doesn't mean her soul is lost. Stop preying on her fears, what not feeling like a big man after your trump card DID NOTHING TO ME? So you resort to trying to bring down a sweet girl's confidence and ruin her day just to feel better about yourself? I thought things like you were supposed to have some kind of pride but"the tears in its "body" begin to burn and flare with shadows that drink in the light around it as it glares at me, the cow snake still biting into my shield, trying to chew it to scrap. Guessing its being controlled by this guy directly."Devour her" he says, raising his arm dramatically as I do the same"HUNTERS!" I shout, drawing their attention behind the wall back to me "FIRE, WALL! SURROUND IT! DO NOT LET HIM ESCAPE"There's a snap of mayhem as the cow flies towards me with its dead head still hanging on its dragging neck. Then the arrows fly, peppering it....its master, and a few other monsters. I think a few men were just saved by this order, but I can't really tell as this thing demands my attention. It brays in pain, dragging across the dirt before it gets surrounded by some of the "soldiers" including Black, who hack it to death as it desperately tries to reach me. I smirk, looking up from the butchering to see the shade of sin scowling at me."Oh? What feeling impotent now?" I ask, turning down to Erret who looks like she's about to cry, grey tears filling up her eyes"You didn't have to...you didn't have to" She repeats, I just smile and Kneel down to give her a quick hug, stopping her rambling with a warm chuckle"Of course I did, he insulted you....you didn't deserve it, Erret" I say, standing as I ruffle her hair "Have some pride! I might be magnificent, but so are you. Even if no one else sees it, I do"Her eyes light up, like I just gave her a fortune for nothing....feels weird making people happy for once, but hey I owe her a lot now. She did save my ass just then"All of you will face death" the shadow says, holes flowing down its form as the wall keeps it walled in, pitchforks aimed towards its back as the battle continues on around us, more of the fields around us catching fire.Erret winces as I sigh, and the bodies of the dead rise up with his hands, as he raises them like a conductor or someone dancing to thriller or something.-300 hp295 mp-

And I can practically smell all the farmer's fear, seeing their friends and neighbor's corpses standing back up...all leaking black smoke and ink as they glance around and pick up their old weapons."Erret, guard me" I say as I do the same, running for the nearest sword that's been left abandoned and stained with blood "And hold this""As you wish" She says cheerfully, nearly singing as I slide my hammer down my hand and hand it to her.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeVf96BtZvo-Oh now this a song I can fight to. Nice and fast paced! lets just hope this isn't a stupid plan because its certainly a fun one."Do not test me!" the shade roars "Devour her!""Devour my ass" I reply on more habit than anything else, blushing as I realize what I said. Thankfully no one heard it, or they're at least polite enough not to ask.Well I'm not waiting to find out, sliding in my boots I kneel down and slide over the mud, staining my wonderful royal blue coat brown and red from all the blood on the ground.And judging from all the splashing I hear behind me, Erret is doing the same."None of you are fit to touch my master" She says angrily, as the smell of rot flies over me and passes Stretching my hand out, and hand blackened with rot and fire grabs for mine, yellowed nails reaching to dig through my flesh and skin eeergh stop imagining what it'd feel like. But before it can, its gets sliced off by a quick scythe swing.I start to whistle to the song ringing in my ears, giving Erret and encouraging thumbs up as I scoop up the old blade and turn, swiping mud off of it."then I will deal with her myself" the shade says furiously, flying towards me like he's motherfucking aku....tch you don't have even an ounce of aku's awesomeness. But....he's fallen for my bait again. Taking a deep, burning breath I smell all the smoke, fire, blood and rot around me, it goes down like slime due to how much taint has been spread over this farm. Gross as hell.Swinging my "new" sword, I flash a smug smile, and stumble toward him as he swings his clawed "hands" at me, turning them into living blades-250 hp left-one digs into my shoulder, but I just bite my tongue to ignore the pain, and push my blade into him."I do not bleed" he hisses at me, teeth and fangs forming where its face should be "what do you intend to do? Vent your wrath towards me""No, BOOM!" I say, laughing madly as the blade begins to crack with golden light.It shrieks and tries to run, but its too late nowroll 1d20+ defense >>1864395funny. by your ACME brand sword now.

....With a sound that could be best described as the clap of an angry god, the battle on the farm is drowned out by an earthshaking explosion. Shards of metal, mud and other foulness fill the air. A strange, acrid and burning scent burns the noses of all the men who followed the young war magus into battle. Silence falls, as the bestial monsters that remain back and shy away from the impossibly loud noise, hissing and barking as some wolves that were once dogs flee with their mangy tails between their legs, only to be cut down by the farmers they were seeking to devour moments before. their whimpers break the silence, with the wailing wind.The young tainted girl turns away from the corpse she's trying to keep pinned, as do the eyes of the two other players. Theirs an unspoken fear in their eyes, as none of them dare to speak what they think just happened to the Beastkin magician Belua.Jonthan ceases his mad butchering of a monster, turning towards the yellowed mushroom crowd as it swirls around its source.the quiet of the grave breaks, as its master raises her voice in a pitiful, desperate call "Lady Belua?"the smoke clears in an instant by the swiping of a tail"Yeah?"...."Sorry about being so dramatic" I chuckle, tossing the hilt of the now completely destroy blade down to the ground, brushing dust and soot off the sleeves of my robes "But honestly, I couldn't think about what I should say, that was just a bit too much even for me, hehe"I look over my shoulder to see Erret wiping tears from her eyes, whimpering and blubbering in relief as Steve clutches his chest and black just craps."W...what" Jonathan, the farmer asks, his face as red as his beard "Gods above girl, you're reckless, you must be in their favor!"Smirking smugly, I open my mouth to speak, but then my goggle spots something. Tendrils and roots of oily blackness desperately crawling away from the motionless zombies, towards the farmhouse. Its crawling towards the burning cornfields, trying to limp back to the home of these poor bastards.And the burning light floating in the attic of the....oh my god if I was right about that bullshit I spouted about an old artifact from the war I am going to just fucking scream.-250 hp255 mp left-What do I do? try to stomp on the shade turned snake trying to slither away 1d20+speed Tell the hunters to aim for the farm house try to grab the shade as it flees 1d20+strroll an lightning orb at it 1d20+magic -25mp STAB THE GROUND, STAB THE GROUND 1d100 taunt it and call it a pussy again  wait to see what its doing, out of curiosity thank erret for doing a good job write in

"Why the serious face, the demon's been slain" Jonathan says, with a satisified but tired look on his face "the bastard who ruined poor velk is banished""Yeah we won" Black says pumping his fist into the air as steve shakes his head, looking unsure."No...no" Erret says glancing back towards were the snake of a shade is slither away to.I don't respond to any of them, and just raise my hand into the air, resisting the urge to summon the lightning orb with my middle finger...but that's an idea to keep in mind for later, when I'm not needing to stop a bastard like this from escaping from his crimes.Lightning flows down, tingling my fingers as it bursts out of my finger tips in little flares of light, gather in my palm and turning a brilliant silver as I feel its heat and power growing. It smooths out and I just give it an underhand toss like I'm rolling a bowling ball.I cover my ears, and so do Erret and steve because we know what's about to come. Everyone else however, doesn't and are left defenseless as the shade shrieks and howls in pain. Electricity runs down its stretched out body, parts of it shrinking and drying up as it struggles to get away from the bouncing ball of zap.The farmers curse and cry out in pain, trying to cover their ears, shouting in panic and fear.-230 mp-What do I do?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wCAXa6Z6CY....I don't react, feeling almost like a dream I stride up to the screaming pile of sin, watching more of it fade away or dry up as the ball of lightning rests on the largest part of it, basically torturing it. Bodies lay on the ground behind it, men who died trying to protect their homes because I brought them hereI close my eyes as I walk to the edge of its "body" and allow myself to smile, and chuckle. Well if anything deserves pain, this thing certainly does. Distant cries of pain fill the air, as I can barely hear Oda shout "GOOD SHOT" in the distance. Oh yeah, he was here to wasn't he? seems like they're having an easy time.But now to vent my frustrations and bits of guilt, and what better way of doing it than blasting the reason for it to ash? My smile grows wider and more sadistic as I taste smoke and heat on my tongue again, fire flowing from my skin and growing, expanding like I took a gasoline bath. There's an audible pop as it flows off of me and onto the shade, scorching it and the ground as I chuckle and pout mockingly"What? where's your power gone? are you too weak to defend yourself now? Or are you just too scared....I bet its the latter, you pu....disgusting coward" I say, biting my tongue since it'd be rude to curse around actual dead people.I push a bit more magic out, popping again with another elemental pulse as the shade screams....and screams. Its giving me a headache, and pissing me off. So I burn it all up with a third casting of that spell- 155 mp left *regening*-"My master...did you slay it?" Erret asks, breaking the silence.I turn back, and see the piles of dead monsters and men laid atop each other like dirt clothes. My stomach churns and my head goes blank for a second.What do I do? lead the mob in burning the rest of the farm meet back up with oda and count up casualties Burn the bodies, monsters and men we should bury them try to cheer up/ inspire the rest, congragulating them Yes erret, I burned it to ash.

>>1864724Well.. not to be pedantic but technically we couldn't sin all we want or else we wouldn't care if the masses were doing good or about the bad crap that happened. Unless I guess for self preservation? But one could philosophically argue we may not even care about that, or be too full of pride to even think that we could die.This is all just rhetorical, philosophical, mumbo jumbo and not really what you were saying. But I just felt like mumbo-jumboing. XD Forgive me.

>>1864736My votes for moonborn or fey
I should probably say something, these guys just watch their neighbors and friends die horrible deaths that I more or less led them to. They must be feeling terrible after all this. I clear my throat, pulling my hood over my head again as everyone looks at me again as I break the silence. Alright Sadie, don't fuck this up! I've never had to give a speech like this or deal with anything like this but hey...this was all kinda fun I guess. But focus, think about what's coming out of your BIG FAT MOUTH, and then say anything that sounds good, inspiring! something to help them grieve and feel like this was all worth it."they were" I say pausing to cover my mouth as Erret takes her place beside me and Black sort of just slides up to us while Steve stays with the rest of the men "they were brave men who gave up their lives for others....one of the rarest kinds of bravery from what I've heard. And you...we would've all done the same, to save others and keep this land ours. They paid the price of purity and virtue, and were defiled after they passed, their bodies were at least. But we killed the bastard who did it, and their souls can rest knowing we've finished the work they set out to do. I'm not exactly a good speech giver, and I can't say for sure since I'm not a priest but uh, somehow I know the gods are smiling down us, welcoming our fallen comrades with open arms""And others bare the scars of our duty as men of Toladar" Jonathan adds as I realize that...holy shit he had his eye ripped out! Ergh, I reach for my own, wincing as I imagine how horrible losing an eye would be "We did our task, killed the inhumane and some of use died for it""Something to grieve, but not cry over yet" another man says "Still got burn this sickness off our land""Aye, we'd be nutty to leave it here now" another adds"Burn the whole farm....so much wasted crop and life""Yeah it was a hard fight but knowing my luck it isn't over yet" Steve groans"they died well!" Black says so over dramatically"I am so glad we did not walk here alone" Erret sighs in relief, flashing a small smile my way"It isn't over yet, we have the rest of the farm to search and burn, letting one monster out of here ruins everything" I say calmly as I can in this fucked situation "Wall form up, soldiers regroup, brawlers do the same....hunters keep your bows ready""Wait what about the others?" One of the men asks"Shouldn't we find the foreigner and the men who went with him?" Another adds, lifting up his tattered straw hat."We can while we're chasing down any other monsters still running around here like....you know" I say cutting myself off again, I can curse later, now I need to look like a competent and stoic leader "If we can find them, once we're done setting this place on fire, we can bury the dead or burn them...whatever their families wish I guess"cont

>>1864767I can't take my eyes off the farm house, mostly because of that bright light burning on the top of the house, like an cellphone turned on in a dark room with full brightness.Well, let me think were monsters could be, defiantly in the farm house. Probably in the stables as well unless they were left open. Doubt there's any sitting on their asses in the cornfields though since most of them are burning up now.oh....crap, I forgot to turn on celebrate death! that would've been amazing! ahhhh godammit!What do I do? burn the house, that shit is probably evil as fuck now investigate what that light is find the weeb and his crew split the mob up to search more places, leaving black and steve to lead their own groups check on the farm house real quick  write in

I refuse to believe in the systems decisions of what is "sin". Besides, we need the gold, throw away items won't cut it for long.
"Alright, we're splitting up into three groups made of equal parts of the wall, soliders, brawlers and hunters" I say, smacking my fist into my open palm "Black, you go with the group that's going to look for we...Oda and his group, don't do anything stupid""Oh I never doing anything stupid, who do you think I am" He laughs confidently as the men who've decided to watch him just hang their heads and sigh, and I see Steve starting to head with them"Steve, Jonathan could you take the other lads around to check out the stables and barn? I bet there's still some monsters hiding in there" I say with a friendly smile. that should keep beardo from getting mad that I lied when I search his friend's house and find out what's making that light up in the attic."That's probably right, since they would've fled from the flames" He says staring across the smoldering fields of not quite popped corn "Velk had some special oil he rubbed on his wood to keep it cool in the summer and warm in the..."he pauses to look at me as I crack up"The wood he built with, perverted girl" Jonathan chuckles before his angry and sad expression comes back "Well come on men, we might be able to burn them out still, just stick close together....Wall leading the way of course""And where are we going?" the fatty from before asks"Don't tell me we're heading towards the house in the middle of this tragic mess, my master" Erret says meekly as I smile, making hers fall "Ooooh...kay, but I feel a strong pull from that direction, some bad is in that house""We could tell, probably Velk and his ilk" Another man spits, as I keep smiling. I really hope Velk hasn't some how survived all this shit or I am fucked.But he never does, he only spawns to die in a scripted event that...well couldn't have happened now that this is all real. If I remember, he's going to be laying on the table of their kitchen, missing his head.Oh...yeah this is not going to be a pretty sight walking in there. I bite my lip as I walk closer to the house, paint peeling off of it and losing its color, wilted flowers and rotting trees surrounding the place. Every window is dusty and their isn't a light in the house. the only sound is the wind, the frantic prayers of the men behind me, Erret breathing, and the house creaking.What do I do? fully explore the house send men to search the house head straight for the light go in alone...with erret Surround the house with my groupPeek through the windows before I go in.

I lift my shield up and point it to the left, as I walk up to the broken down front door, stepping over it since its laying at the bottom of the stone stairs leading into the cottage like house sitting in the middle of the now burning fields."Surround the house, if anything besides me or Erret come out, kill it" I say casually as I stop just outside the empty doorway, smelling a thick scent of blood, oil and booze oozing out of the building, the sunlight lighting up the otherwise dark room....Claw marks and blood stains covering the destroyed, ruined furniture. A fire is still crackling from what I can hear and see."...don't think they're still alive in here, do you?" erret asks as I take my last breath of fresh air and walk inside, nearly being overwhelmed by the stench of fresh vomit, bad perfume, and everything else I smelled before"I don't know, can you sense anything tainted?" I whisper as I walk past the mess their "living" room has become, bits of meat and shards of wooden chairs and tables tossed every. And I wisely don't look at what's bubbling in the pot of the fire place, but erret does and whimper"this house is cursed, too much death in such a short time" She says, grabbing her braids and hood, pulling them closer together "Something...evil is here""Tainted?" I ask, already knowing the answer"Yes....something that has brought sorrow and pain to many lives, but I can't tell if its alive or not" She says shaking her head "Its burning my tongue...my eyes, its making my head feel like its rotting"I frown, poor thing. I probably should've left her outside, but well...this is better than going in alone and she wouldn't have stayed put I think. Frowning deeper, I walk up the stairs, not looking down into what's in the hole between the steps, or thinking about what's splashing against my boots....it felt squishy and wet, but I don't want to think about what part of the human body it was.the upper floor is darker, with rooms ripped off the walls, barricaded from the outside or just....well broken down. I don't look in any of the rooms but once again."Oh these poor souls" Erret gasps, stopping as I notice something at the end of the hallway. Stairs, with a dead woman laying at them...li...literally ripped in half. Her head is crushed like a fucking egg.My stomach turns, and I cover it. Thankfully this new body of mine has long since digested breakfast. The taste of bile fills my mouth, as Erret dry heaves and huddles against the wall."Go..gods above" She yelps "I...I wasn't prepared for that""Neither was I" I squeak, as I forcibly drag my feet over to the corpse. Looks like she was trying to climb up to the attic, where the ball of fire is sitting. Lifting off my goggles, for a second, it vanishes. But I remember where it was."Stay close" I say, trying not to sound scared as I carefully step around the body, and peek up the attic.cont
>>1864888Boxes, old cheese and barrels of what I'm guessing to be wine sit around gathering dust.But that's not the first thing I see, no that would be too normal and sane for Da'ta. No no. No the first thing I see is a man, dressed in the same clothes as the mob a led, his greying hair hanging over his face, a groomed mustache sitting dead on his pale lips as he hangs there impaled to one of the wooden support beams.I creep closer, swallowing my fear as my throat dries up. Glancing around, I don't see anything here, besides the body, the useless crap....and the blade sticking out ofits curved, like a scythes blade or a cats claw....made out of some odd looking metal that looks sunbleached somehow, wrapped with old dirty bandages on the end. The upper edge looks serrated, meaning it'd rip open the guts of any poor fucker unlucky enough to be stabbed by it.Is it oiled.I grab my hand as it reaches for it, and I curse myself out for being so stupid! this thing has to be tainted somehow!"Master....do not move an inch closer to that blade, its soaked with death and fear, and" Erret says pausing to hold her head, when she looks back up, her eyes are filled with stars "hunger. That is a blade held by heretic's hands...sinner hands, forged by monster blood!"What do I do? NOooooope! burning this place to ground.

>>1864896I'd like to take this moment to remind you HM that you've probably written not only one novels worth of stuff doing quests, but possible more than one novels worth, most likely even, for all I know. I think I word counted a single session once. You work hard. And a lot. XD I'm just telling you this so that you know it's possible for you - you've already done it. What you do with that information, I dunno. Mayne you think about editing a quest down into a written book or something, or maybe you'd think you want to write a novel on the side, try to be published, or I dunno, but I'm just throwing that info out there. I don't know how old you are or what, but if writing is your passion, it's worth a shot to make it a living, even if it doesn't pay the bills it might be something in your heart that you'd want to try getting published at least once, in this life, or even try to see if you might be able to move toward that path as a career or whatever, while you do whatever else, or not do whatever else, or etc. Just saying stuff to let you know you can try stuff. (Encouragement.) If you wanted.
>>1864908Erm, I'd say if other epole were taking my > then yah we'd definitely reroll it. But since I'm the only one who suggested it probably won't happen so no need to reroll, rrr.. right? I think.
>>1864914that means more to me than you can imagine
Well, art anon has give you the ability to reroll this threadso reroll 1 1d20 I mean whats the worst that can happen (ask Erret)
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>1864926> reroll 1 1d20Cursed sword bad, VERY BAD! And if it helps, I agree with Draw Anon 100%, you are more than skilled and passionate enough about what you do to make a career out of this if that's what you wanted to do.
>>1864924Good. I was worried you already were doing something like that and you were thinking, "Thanks for saying it, but I'm already doing that." I didn't want to sound presumptuous. But yah, my main point is. You've done so much work I know for sure if I word counted your quests I'd get at LEAST one novels worth of writing, and I wouldn't be surprised if it was several. They are what a first draft is pretty much. Writing fast on the fly, getting the story out. So for example you could edit the 'boring' or needless parts out, fix spellings etc. and possibly turn a quest itself into a book, or alternatively, you could just write a novel on the side or whatever. But you KNOW you're able to do it, because you've literally already done it. You've literally already done that much work. You have everything it takes work-wise to make a novel. So I saw that, and thought if you're not perusing that it might be a waste, and not to get personal but I know your life isn't always the greatest (not that anyone elses is either) and as a fellow artist you know I wish the best for you, and so hopefully my encouragement is a good thing and not a bad thing. I wouldn't want you to persue it then starve or die or something and it be my fault either. XD So.. Whatever. You get the idea, I'm just trying to say something to let you know your ability etc. What you do with the information is up to you, and of course, you can be cautious about your life too and make sure you don't starve or die. XD See, drawanon minus drawing = talking too much and saying things strangely, or something like that.

She says, pouting as I walk past her"I know I was, it was a stupid thing to do. but I had to do it...lets take this thing back to Cornibus" I say as I walk down the stairs over the woman's body, and down the hallway leading to the lower floor"Oh?" Erret asks, not saying anything else as I start down the stairs towards the exit"Yes, he must know someway to destroy this thing" I say happily "Or something? maybe lock it up somewhere or some shi""Ah" Cornibus says, walking in through the front door slowly, holding his grand walking stick in his hands, his golden mask shiny like it just got polished, his blue and silver robes flowing over the floor as he glances up at me, his long mustache drifting with his movement "if it isn't my reckless apprentice, you have been busy haven't you....if you wanted to be a crusader I could've arranged for you to be inducted into a knightly order, rather than bury your head in books....from the sights outside you seem to take to it naturally...Horrid mess here isn't it"He glances aroundWhat do I sayH...how did you get here Did you hear us talking or something How do I know you're the real cornibus Hey...m..master, We found something we need your help dealing with it Oh god no Hey, Cornibus, you wouldn't happen to be able to destroy artifacts of great evil would you I'm in trouble aren't IHEY DIDN'T I TELL YOU NOT TO LET ANYONE IN EITHER? write in
>>1864964the magic of twitter being an arsehole>>1864934>>1864930I've been wanting to write more Layla stuff/ stuff set in USN/ Da'ta/ the many other ideas I haveBut seriously, that has been a dream of mine and I didn't realize I actually managed to write at least a full novels worth of stuff doing this
>>1864967Dude do a word count of a single session. lol It's easy. Just copy paste all your story posts into a word counter online. Then think about how many sessions you've done since you began questing with roughly the same word count.And look up what the average word count of a novel is. And you'll get a rough idea of how long of a novel all of your quests worth of writing would be. Then realize that it's ALL fiction/a story/stories that you wrote. Meaning you've literally done the work to write a first draft of one, or several novels. XDOr you could compress that work and say 'how many actually publishable finished copy novels worth of work would it be worth? And I dunno the answer to that, but, you get the idea.
>>1864965> HEY DIDN'T I TELL YOU NOT TO LET ANYONE IN EITHER?> We took care of it. No worries.Discuss the blade later when there's another authority figure.
>>1864965>HEY DIDN'T I TELL YOU NOT TO LET ANYONE IN EITHER?> How do I know you're the real cornibus>H...how did you get here> Did you hear us talking or something> Oh god noThis is an illusion caused by the sword! We need this thing of of our bag... how long do we need to touch something to cast Explosive Sacrifice? And could a healer reattach or regrow an arm?
>>1864965> How do I know you're the real cornibus> Hey, Cornibus, you wouldn't happen to be able to destroy artifacts of great evil would you>. I'm in trouble aren't I
>>1864965 How do I know you're the real cornibus Did you hear us talking or somethingHEY DIDN'T I TELL YOU NOT TO LET ANYONE IN EITHER?
>>1864965> Hey, Cornibus, you wouldn't happen to be able to destroy artifacts of great evil would you> I'm in trouble aren't I
>>1864965>H...how did you get here> Did you hear us talking or something> How do I know you're the real cornibus> Hey...m..master, We found something we need your help dealing with it> Hey, Cornibus, you wouldn't happen to be able to destroy artifacts of great evil would you>This better not involve going on an epic journey, cause there are funner things to journey for than this.I don't want to deal with this blade.
>>1864965Or you know, an idea just came to me. If you don't feel like the STORY is enough, or finished enough, for a novel-novel (even though you have enough WORDS) you might consider converting your quests into Light Novels, or making one on the side, as an alternative and/or starting point. That's what Sword Art Online is, it's a series of light novels, which is sort of quest-like, at least that's my presumption, I haven't read them but I've seen the show. (Sorry will pick option just had this idea and had to write it before finishing reading your last post, sorry for being distracting a bit)
>>1864965>Cornelius! (I wrongly say) "H... How did you get here?>Could you help us with this situation, do you know what to do?>HEY, Didn't I tell you not to let anyone in either?
Well I gotta go to bed, Thanks for the awesome session HM!
"HEY DIDN'T I TELL YOU NOT TO LET ANYONE IN EITHER?" I yell past him as erret clings to the back of my robes, standing beside my tail as Cornibus laughs"and you refused my recommendation for an easy life as a teacher of our magical" He chuckles, shaking his head, leaning over his silvered walking stick "but then Belua, you always were more of a take action girl, always favored the deadly spells....but I didn't think you'd leave trail of bodies on a simple errand""How do I know you're the real cornibus?" I ask as he tilts his head"Ha, an illusion could not copy one as powerful as I easily, and it'd use the word grand and magnificent to describe itself if it came from what I suspect to be at work here" He says calmlyI just stare at him blankly"Alright I suppose that wouldn't work either, considering it might be a smart illusion" He says, twisting his mustache into a grand twirl "How about a different test, unless it was effecting you my apprentice, it could not peer into your mind"He slams his walking stick into the ground"I found you at a young age, in a village devoured by Dires on the border of Razlithur, saving you from a life of slavery" He says and noting my frown, which I put on so I don't make him suspicious with confusion continues, "Some years later, you picked up Erret from the streets after she was abandoned due to her condition, ever since she has served you willingly and happily. And if you truly need convincing, last week you stole my morning toast....coated in purified hiver honey"".....are you still mad about that?" I ask to cover my ass as Erret tries to make herself look smaller than she is, never once looking up"No" He says bluntly "I am however nettled that you risked years of training....you should've told me about this tainted farm, there would've been no death if I had come here alone....though I suppose asking for help is not in your nature...is it Pangolynn?""Hey....Cornibus, you wouldn't happen to be able to destroy artifacts of great evil would you?" I ask as he sighs, and takes a slow step forward"it is in my training, being a man of the gods and arcane secrets" He says seriously, as he takes another shakey step forward "So my fears we're true....it was a demon fang blade after all""What?" I ask bluntly-Belua is close to leveling up! one more combat should do it!ERRET HAS LEVELED UP level up reaver or another class *she has access to the maid advance class*
K, I just did it for you HM. Today's session so far, you've written: 10 059 words, give or take a few words cause word counters aren't perfect. That does NOT include your options (this that) or you saying 'roll this, roll that' or -hp 250' or anything like that. Those are JUST story words. The average novel is 60, 000 to 100, 000 words. You've written 10, 000 in ONE session. ONE. SESSION. Let's say there was only.. 1/3rd of this session that was good enough to put into a novel. So, 3300 words. Then you'd still have a 60, 000 word novel in 18 sessions like this one. If after editing you only had HALF the amount of words, that's still a 100, 000 word novel in only 20 sessions! If every single word was perfect and you didn't have to cut anything, you'd have a 100, 000 word novel in only 10 sessions. 100, 000 words is something like a 400 page novel. You write the equivalent of a 400 page novel worth of words, for every 10 sessions you do that are as long as this one! And I've done a word count on one of your sessions before I think, and I think I came roughly close to this number. I'm pretty sure you regularly do 7000 words, at least. I don't know really, what the average would be, counting long and short sessions and everything. But you get the idea.
>>1865013> level up reaverOur girl definitely earned it
>>1865013Here is the proof: https://pastebin.com/hRkz9i3TYou can put your text into a word counter and see for yourself. And this isn't including the post you just made now, or anything after it.
>>1865018>pic related>>1865013maido in hevun
>>1865013>Let's up the Reaver for now maybe, but want to hear what the other class options are for maids
>>1865022Never ever doubt that you are a bad ass HM, now write a book so I can give you money!
>>1865022I would pay for a hardcover of your quests
>>1865022If you make it as a writer, remember me in case I'm homeless some day. I mean only if you have oodles of money, I wouldn't burden you if you're just making regular feed your family money. XD
So unless there's anyone elsereaver has wonso 3 stat points to give to erret>>1865033>>1865040You're making me blush
>>1865022Nah, I'm just kidding. I wouldn't bother you regardless.
>>1865013> level up reaverLooking at tooatoora, the only helpful thing for now is already coverd by the bag. Or is strong medicine a maid ability?
>>1865045What are the stats again?
>>1865050strong medicine is a maid ability>>1865051strengthdexterityspeedlearningwillpowermagic can only be raised by taking new classesdefense is usually only raised by armor
>>1865045>1 Magic, 1 Learning, 1 Speed
>>18650551 str1 dex1 spd
>>1865055Oh, forgot can't do magic. K, >1 learning, 2 speed
>>1865058We need a new class for magic
>>1865045>>1 learning, 2 speedYou deserve the praise HM
>>1865055What does scythe use
>>1865070>>18650512 speed 1dex
>>1865062I wonder if we can multiclass to get magic boosties. Like, if some classes allow magic to be boosted, or if HM means that we can only get a boost /upon/ taking on a new class, as a one time deal kinda thing...
>>1865078You magic stat determines the spell level/ what magical feats you can pull off Currently the highest you can use is level 2, which you'll unlock in a few levels
>>1865084Aaah, I shee, I shee. So as a mage already we'll naturally move up eventually in that stat. That makes sense. Thanks. Did you also mean though that we would get an auto-boost if we took on a new magical class (to multiclass with?) Or would the number stay the same, but just mean we could also do up to level 2 spells with our new class as well... or something like that.
>>1865055>1 speed>1 willpower>1 learning
>>1865055> 3 StrengthMuscle-fu
I hope you guys aren't mistakenly thinking learning gives us more magic power.
>>18650551 for learning, 2 for willpower.Thanks for running!
>>1865094I'm thinking Learning will let us remember Lore and Tactics and where we left our goddamn Zombie Armies.Genre Savvy, the Stat.
Alright, 1 learning 2 speed wonWe'll end here for todayI've archivedand will answer questionsMay do a bonus session again this weakif I do it'll be on Friday, the day before fresh soul reaper>>1865089It means, say base magician can use level 2 spells, if they wish to stay the same class they'll go to the advance version magus and so onesame with reavers as they can get stronger necromancy....their last class upgrade being god of death.Oh course, say taking a level of witch or one of the mancers as war magus like you, gives you more magic, letting you progress as well.Basically you can stay the same class or branch out->>1865093Strong arms to carry the masterFucking armstrong (From FMA) with Erret's face>>1865094it does help quite a bit. Like having a higher learning would make it easier to learn how make new undead/ learn ritualsor make custom spells/ techniques....etcLearning helps you increase skills faster and learn new ones easier, and as said early other things
>>1865103Great thread as always HM, thanks for running. Thanks for everything you do, and sorry in advance if I can't make it to Friday or Saturday's sessions, I've got a wedding to go to.
>>1865103Great thread! Too bad I missed most of it...How do we unlock the rune based class?
>>1865108Oh, nice. Hope you enjoyNever been to one.
>>1865110that's one of the difficulties I'm having with it. Maybe find a book or study it?Still need to think up the abilities it'd grant though.
>>1865112Some are good, some are bad. I've been to at least one wedding where I think I'd rather have gone to a funeral. Thanks again for the thread HM! Hope the encouragement was a good thing, and... yah, !
>>1865112I will HM, have a good night, see you guys as soon as I can.
>>1865117Night CU, hope you have a good time and everything goes well for you. ^^
>>1865114It should be the forbidden "Coding" class that forces corruption on minds that use it.Runs the risk of spreading "viruses" or seg-faulting the user if done badly.
Pointless doodle before bed.
>>1865125oh what is it?
>>1865103Okay, I would just find it weird if people just kept dumping into it for any other reason that what it really is. So will uncle corny take care of that sword? Also seems like the game would rather brush aside whatever we were, given from the mind reading.
>>1865127I dunno, just an image I had in my head while drawing, sort of didn't have any specific direction exactly. It's a wierd older looking woman petting a dog. XD
I was thinking I may want to do a oneshot session in between HM quest sessions one of these days. Nothing committal like my quest-quests I did on anonkun, just a one shot kind of thing while we're waiting for the next HM session, possibly maybe.
>>1865093>>1865103So life stealing fists? Sounds fun.
>>1865128The shade was confused because Sadie/ Belua's greatest sin wasn't one of....well one of the sins.But rather her easily excitable nature, combined with her latent sadism/griefer ways.Which made the spell back fire as to indulge in said sin gave her a buff instead of say....eating corpses or showing off by attacking the strongest thing around...etcSince her vice was causing mayhem and destruction/ griefing in generaal and she had "already done that" and was indulging in it alreadyso the spell buffed her as technically she was partaking in sin>>1865136Would work, lifesteal can be through her hands or weapons after all
>>1865139If I have that idea sometime, and want to do it, would you maybe announce it for me on your twitter? That way I get the same peeps (our crowd) and not just strangers. Like May 13 - Magical Girl LegendMay 15 - Lost in Da'ta May 16 - Drawfriend's Interlude May 18 - Fresh Soul ReaperAlso it'd be cool if you used a name like CU does, just keep yourself as "Headmaster" because if you were anonymous the thought would trip me out. lol if you played
>>1865139Nice, if only it has enough backers for it to happen.
>>1865114You could look up the rune priest class for DnD.Also, here is my unholy idea for a mobile artillery piece with explosive ap shells
>>1865161Fugg, just realized the bullet wouldn't have the 2nd rune on it. Gotta rework it
>>1865161Oh I like that.
>>1865167The gun or the class?
>>1865170Bear in mind these babies could fire through hills. Imagine what they would do if they hit an armored night then exploded with the force of 3 pounds of dynamite ON TOP OF that force
>>1865139If not it's ok hm I understand you change your schedule a lot and may not want to have someone else on there just in case, just keep it all your own quests and I can announce an interlude game somewhere else or whatever, some other way, if I wanted to do that. Or even if you really didn't want me to set up an interlude game (a one shot game to play between one of your sessions waiting for the next one) inside your threads at all, and would prefer that I did reach out to strangers instead of doing that kinda thing here, I'd totally respect that too. I don't really mind getting 'no' answers and it's your thread and your peeps. I'm a player here and I enjoy it here, so I respect that and wouldn't disrespect your wishes about your/these threads.
>>1865171Hm here. That is fucking awesome.>>1865172Follow you heart
>>1865180I think you missed the first post maybe. I was just asking that if I wanted to do a short game in between one of your sessions if you would announce it for me on your twitter schedule. But when you didn't answer me I got the feeling you wanted to say no but were too shy. So that's why I wrote: >>1865172So I still don't know your feelings about it. I'm guessing follow your heart means you're okay with me doing an in between quest while waiting for your next session if I felt like it. But it doesn't answer how you feel about it, or if you'd help with the schedule thingy, or prefer not to have it on your twitter cause of your time changing and stuff or for whatever reason, you wouldn't have to tell me why.
>>1865191I prefer people to try their own thing so it doesn't get smothered up. And I can't fit any more quests in the schedule tweets anymore. Pressing against the char limit every time now
>>1865205Okay that's cool, that's all I wanted to know. I thought it might not work, either. Don't be shy to say no man, I won't hate you or anything silly. I dunno what you're thinking obviously, but don't feel bad k, and it doesn't make you look like a bad guy or anything. I dunno what to say but trying to let you know it's all right. X)So the twitter thing no, and the other thing I wanted to know was: So, it doesn't bother you if I ask these guys if they want to do an interlude between one of your quests one of these days? Or would you prefer I not do that on your threads, too? (remembering that I totally understand and won't have hard feelings or etc.)
>>1865212If you wanna run a quest, I say do it. try a one shot. I've done one shot quests under different names before when I wanted to try ideas I didn't think could fly or just had free time on my hands with a full schedule....actually I've only done this once.then again this is because of how I qm/write in general, where if I get an idea I like enough I just write it.And interludes can be like omakes I suppose.I'd prefer you try to see how doing a quest yourself would go on /qst/ just to see how it'd work out for you.but that's just what I'd do
>>1865221That's cool, but what I mean is, does it bother you if I asked these guys, our guys, on this, one of your threads, to meet me on (day between one of your quests) here on QST for an interlude. You get what I mean? Like if you'd rather I not set it up HERE, on your threads, cause it's your thread. If you'd prefer I reach out to strangers and not use your thread in that way. Or on the other hand, if you'd be okay with that.
>>1865221Like, I don't mean I'd use your thread to DO a quest. But in one of your threads, like this one here, I'd say, "hey everyone, I'm running a one shot in between sessions tomorrow here on QST, I'll call it 'blah' and you're all invited (including you HM)" In other words, I'd advertise it here, on one of your threads, because these are the guys I know (including you.) If you'd prefer me NOT to do that, for whatever reason, I'd totally respect that and wouldn't be bothered at all. I just want to know how you feel, honestly.
>>1865234Sure. I only dislike pointless arguing and salt
>>1865241Yah of course, who doesn't. Why, you think if I advertised an in between sess on here people would argue and get salty?
>>1865252Or did you just say that as in, "I'd be happy to play a game with you guys too, I just don't like arguing and salt." I just didn't know why you added that part, like what you were saying.
>>1865255I dunno bout to pass out
>>1865241Wait I think I get it now. You meant: I'm okay with you advertising an in between game, the only things I don't like on my threads are arguing and salt. Sorry, I'm just really easily confused. It's probably partly because its like almost 5am here. XD Anyway! Have a good night HM!
>>1865221Sorry for weird amount of questions and bugging you so late HM. I think we may have both been so tired (especially you after 11 hours of writing) that neither of us were fit to carry on a normal conversation and understand what was going on. XD Anyhoo, soz! Tt man
