Which is bad because I know a good chunk of lore about this game even though I just griefed in it when it wasn't....real?He sighs, and glancing towards the carnage all around us he straightens his back suddenly standing tall and almost healthy looking instead of the near death hunch he's been sporting forever in game and since he became real."Well I do suppose it was not your studies Belua" He says calmly, turning towards me again, making Erret shrink back again like a cat that's just been sprayed with water "What it being considered a hidden knowledge, with how....conniving they tend to be. Many a kind soul have been lead astray from righteous path because of such things....No doubt that shade of sin you slew was born from its presence and the actions it forced"Erret shudders, groaning like she knows exactly what this old fossil is talking about, making me feel bad for her again. So I curl my new tail around her, so she isn't so scared of this nursing home dodger...makes me wonder why she's scared of him, which I really don't want to think about at least not after the things I have seen in the last half hour alone."Impressive work by the way, my dear apprentice" He says, sounding suddenly like a proud grandfather than just an uncaring teacher "Leading an untrained force to victory against monstrous foes is no simple task, and you succeeded with....acceptable casualties. However..."I groan and hang my head back, yeah I know this tone. I've heard it so many times before. That condescending tone that's supposed to make you feel bad right after they praised the thing you just did, a sort of soft scolding for when they know what you did was "wrong" but also better than anything else could do. its exactly like when I ruined that one kids volcano project because I read a chemistry book for kids and thought my idea was funner....the judges agreed but I still got detention for nearly two weeks. Also I should probably focus so I don't get into more trouble/ upset the powerful wizard.cont
>>1889574"Your reckless and impatiences has once again proven to be your largest weakness as a magus" He says, his voice never lowering to scathing like he barely cares that I messed up here "And now you're hands are stained with the blood spilled needlessly by your actions, though I cannot lie and say without you things would've been better. More men would've died without your guidance and more still if this was left to fester as the mayor was intending until I noticed the corruption he was desperately trying to ignore"He folds his arms together, pushing his hands into his sleeves as he slumps back over with a pained groan, leaning onto his walking stick for support so he doesn't just topple to the blood stained floor. He chuckles and pull his head back, his mask glimmering in the dying light of the fire in an almost evil looking way."If I had know you were touched by the bloody warlord's wisdom I would've had you trained in warfare long ago" He says calmly as he turns away and heads for the door, as Erret finally starts to loosen up and calm down though she's still pale like she always is "The great seven gods know that our legions are in desperate need of...fresher leadership after all, But enough talk. Come my apprentice, whatever celebration they have to give you can wait. We must make sure you were not tainted in the same way as your devoted servant and you no doubt need rest after today's excitement"What do I do? ask why he doesn't seem like he gives a fuck about these people Ask if he's joking about the leadership thing, cause I am in no way ready to lead armies or anything like that Refuse, I'd like to at least see these people put to rest for what they did today Pester him about the demon fang blade Ask Erret why she's scared of him, did he hurt her? accept his offer for some relaxation, I deserve some after risking my life like this!

"You know you don't really seem to actually give a fu"I say biting my tongue, this guy is supposed to be my teacher and I know cursing around teachers leads to trouble, hell cursing around most authority does which is a real pain the ass "care about these people"He pauses before he reaches the door way, setting his foot back down as he turns back to face me in an almost mechanicle way, though the way he leans back makes it seem like he's surprised that I do care about the same thing he was chewing me out over. That people died today."Oh? Simple" He says calmly, happily before his voice lowers and saddens "you as a magus are worth more than a mob of farmers, in the grand scheme of things my dear apprentice at least. You have trained you whole life to be able to channel the magical forces of our world , many would kill to be given even a chance to do the same. And you are one of the rare few who can wield magic while in the thick of battle, who can remember the thought incantations and soul glyphs to cast while under direct danger and pressure. They as tragic as it is, are replaceable far more easily than you are Belua, and I know you more than them. So to me, it would've been a far greater loss if you had died instead of a few farmers. Though they died with Courage and an honor rare these days....I'll be sure to find there names and have them put in the records of Matrys, but now we really must""Were you joking about that leadership thing? Like you weren't serious right? cause I am in no way ready to lead armies or anything like that" I say, feeling strangely warm and fuzzy inside with what he just said "Tch" He clicks his tongue and suddenly his voice is absolutely filled with disgust and sarcasm "Well perhaps you'd do better than the current leaders, invaded that tainted heartland despite warnings and then ended up losing entire legions and left behind more in that hell just to escape and sealed them in. Gave up some bright minds and hopeful souls to the thrice deviled hordes.....such incompetence sours my tongue, but enough depressing talk we have tests to run and"Wait....oh, that was the last expansion right? the one that added tainted and Ker'larn to the game so that means that....oh that isn't good at all! that's actually horrible but can't say I'm not glad wasn't on my level capped chars when this....whatever happened to us and the game happened. I pause, shake my head and ignore the chill that's now running down my spine as I follow him out the door and cut him off by raising my hand."I don't think I can rest until this place is burned to the ground" I say as calmly as I can, since I think I'm supposed to know about what he's talking about even though its kind of the cherry atop the shitty parts of my situation right now "Sorry if that's a bit crazy sounding but, with the things I've seen here I want to make sure this place is cleared out"cont
>>1889698"Understandable" He says, pushing his mask against his face as he walks past the obviously scared shitless and shocked farmers outside of the door "Just be sure not to breath in the smoke, can never be too careful after all"He keeps walking and I stop as one of the farmers rubs his throat and clears it as he leans against his pitchfork"I know its not my place, but what were you two talking bout in there?" He asks,glancing back at the regal figure of my "teacher" "was it really so bad he had to show up? He's usually a hermit innit he?""At least she left the tower before today" another adds in as I frown, looking at Erret as she carefully watches Cornibus basically glide his way down the stone path leading out of the farm"Erret" I say, ignoring their questions right now since honestly this seems a lot more fucking important to me "did that old bastard hurt you or something? why are you so scared of him""Eh?" she gasps, jumping up as a shadow passes over her eyes "Oh don't speak of him like that master! we owe him so much but...he's not as kind as you, and is stronger. He has no love for creatures like me and the air around him makes my head hurt but...he's never hit me or abused me! so he's kinder than most but....don't insult him over such petty things"I glance back, seeing the farmers looking horrified and flabbergasted at what I just said. I look at cornibus and see him still walking, humming to himself as he goes. Okay so he didn't hear that I think. Sighing in relief, I flash a cocky smirk and look back to the farmers"Good, I was about to get mad at the old man" I say happily before I frown and get serious again as I walk towards the unburnt fields "Well come on, we have to burn the rest of this ranch and make sure there aren't any monsters left. Lots of stuff we still need to do like gathering the dead or meeting back up with the others"What do I do? chat/ answer their questions try and figure out what happened in Ker'larn Participate in the burning, since I've always wanted to actually burn something down just watch them do it Ask Erret why she's never mentioned it before Meet back up with the other players gather the dead up, and figure out what to do with them Make sure they aren't going to butcher the mayor Go back to Carolton and boast about how badass I am Send anyone who's injured back to the village write in

>>1889791No. See. We kill the Mayor. Then we BECOME the Mayor. The we recruit Peasants for our new Legion.
"And why have you never mentioned this before? it sounds like its pretty serious, getting headache just by standing next to him" I say looking at her as I walk back down the path I took to the farm house "That's kind of something you should tell people, Erret""Because, my master, I do not stand next to him often...it is not my place to" She says frowning "but I didn't want to worry you""Well you've fucking worried me now" I say as I stop and turn around to ask the closest farmer if they could help me gather up the bodies.But I see that quite of few of them are injured like I am, hell the one right behind me is holding his stomach like he's trying to keep insides....well inside! He has a pained expression and his leg is hastily bandaged up. Another guy has a bandaged covering most of his face! what happened to him?!I groan, and pinch the bridge of my nose"Alright, any of you who are injured, go back to the town and tell anyone you meet on the way to not butcher the mayor" I sigh "you've done enough today and don't need to die from bleeding out or a monster jumping you while we work, so go back to your families""You're injured as well" the man holding his stomach says "You're shoulder and face still have blood on them, so would you come back with us then?""No, I'm fine" I say waving my hand down "just a few cuts and bruises, but seriously you lot need to go back""And you won't? you might no be as torn up but you're still in the same boat as us" the man with the mummy face says stubbornly"We won't leave if you're still walking about here""You've done too much good today to put yourself in danger""Even if all the monsters are dead, you still need to clean your wounds""I said go back, I'll be fine. I have magic and a teacher who'll tend to me I'm pretty sure" I say angrily "So any of you that are injured go back to town or if you want to help tell the others about what I said just now before you do! And make sure to mention the whole not killing the mayor thing!""He's just incompetent" the man in front says "not something that deserves death unless he had part in this....tragedy""A greedy pig, is all he is. Most we'll do is force him to repent and beg for forgiveness, hehehe" Mummy face says, chuckling as he does so, leaning against his pitchfork"Just a noble's son who was worried about his own fat" another adds, tipping his hat "He's always been a bit of a dumb ass""Yeah, if he was bad enough to deserve an execution he'd have been hanging on the gate by now" A bearded man growls as I nod "but....if he did have an hand in this we're ripping him apart, yes"I pause as the man looks at me with a steely glare, his black beard blowing in the wind as some smoke flows around him and the fire crackles almost menacingly. Well what do I say here then?cont
>>1889822Good point. Still, we need a title like a baron or a knight to not look like we're just rebelling. Having a place that will grow food for soldiers is a great start.
>>1889836"Uh...uh...Of course, just making sure since I don't want this to become a lynch mob unless it has to" I say clapping my hands together as I tap my til on the ground to "clap" it "But now all of you who went through the blender need to go back or at least pass this message onto everyone else. Anyone who isn't about to fall apart can help me gather up the dead and burn the rest of this ranch down before it can ruin the rest of this land""Are we burning them?" A boy round my age asks "My father died today, and he wanted to be burried by the lake...he always loved it""No you idiot" Beardy says angrily "their corpses have been tainted, they need to be burned or they'll spread this filth or in the worst case rise again""he's right, some of them have been touched by necromancy....of a sort" Erret says, pulling her scarf a bit higher up her face "and master if we're burning this place to cinders, it'd be less work...wouldn't it?"I sigh, and cover my eyes with my hand. I just want to burn something, and wind down from this mess so I can start enjoying having magic. This guilt and stuff is making it hard to do and why are they asking me what to do with the bodies? can't we figure this out later or something?Well? Burn the corpses cart them back to town to their families to be buried Just let their families/friends decide what to do with them Say bluntly we'll figure it out later, and start burning the house down write in
>>1889863> Burn the corpses>chop up the boys father so that it can't just attack, then individually wrap up the parts, so that he can burn him by the lake
>>1889863> Burn the corpses

>>1889863> Burn the corpsesCan't take the risk, it's unfortunate but that's war
>>1889871>Cart them back to the town to be burned.Fair enough. Makes things more honorable with a town funeral pyre.
>>1889898>stick the corpses in our bag for transportationLess work dragging the bodies.
But I already knew what we'd have to do. It isn't safe putting those bodies into the ground after that shade touched them. Not sure how long taint takes to spread under the ground, but it can't be a good idea to bury zombies even if they were only like that for a minute or two. Burning them is really the only way to do things here, otherwise it'll just make things worse and not in the fun way. "Yeah, we should burn them but not here. At least give their families a chance to see them one more time before they're gone" I say as I pull my hand away from my eyes "its really the only thing we can do. Some of you going back to town get a few carts so we can take them back and the rest""But that isn't!" the boy yells, looking furious and saddened"So you want the entire graveyard to rise up? your crops to come awake at night an eat you? Fucking hivers to show up?" I say, glaring him down "I know its not what he wanted, but its the only we can do things, if you want to you can burn his body at the lake, but burrying them is out of the question unless we all start acting like dumbasses and forget what taint can do""Glad you still have your sense in ya" Beardy says as erret nods"It is sad, but it is what must be done otherwise more suffering will come" She says sadly, looking at the ground...hope this isn't striking a nerve of hers, I really don'tThe boy bites his lip, tears welling in his eyes as he doesn't say a word and nods slowly. "Alright, now lets get to burning this horrible fucking place to the ground and get those bodies back to their homes" I say, frowning as Erret sighs"Today has really angered you hasn't it master?" She asks, following by my side as I the able men start tossing their torches at the house"Get me a torch" I say bluntly, holding my hand out to them as a smile creeps over my lipsWhat do I do?

It really all passes in one blur, too quickly in fact. The excitement of watching something this size burn up doesn't last long, but it was fun to toss a torch through the window of the farm house and see the whole thing turn into a blaze. But the smells that came off the smoke made me feel sick and whoozy, and the heat of all the burning fields really didn't help me feel any better. And in the end, it didn't take much to get the entire farm burning and the second it was we had to rush out since it was impossible to breathe with all the burning smoke in the air. But it was a rush! seeing all that fire....but like most rushes it doesn't stay and ends as soon as it came. And I know why, because I know what's going to be at Carolton when I get back there, and Erret has been twitchy around all the fire so I can't actually enjoy all this arson.But now I'm walking back, Black, Steve and Oda not saying much now that we're back together. The first two seem a little sellshocked and oda just seems to be trying to stay quite like I am as we march back to the town, the farmers turned milita not say a word or even a prayer.As soon as we start down the dirt road leading into town, I can hear the crying. the wails of pain and tear filled prayers. I hang my head, trying to tune it all out, but it doesn't really work. This kind of suffering isn't the kind I like to cause, or at least watch.Even from the opening of the path, past the open gate, I can see the pile of bodies stacked up high with piece of the cart broken down, boys and men that don't look older than me standing around it with torches trying to look stoic and emotionless as their mothers...or sisters all cry around them. They're not doing a good job though, since most of them are crying.But I notice something that's...well not to be unexpected with how Toladar is. Even though they're crying, most of them are smiling and looking proud of their fathers, brothers and friends sacrifice. That certainly lifts my spirits a bit! don't feel as shitty and guilty now! The Pig beast kin mayor is standing at the edge of the funeral procession, nervously surrounded by guards. "Oh Maiden crone, these brave souls have walked their last step on the maiden's path and can no longer follow her among our lives, oh crone take their courageous spirits by hand and lead them to their reward in the next life. Oh father of war, Bloodthirsty protector, Warlord see their deeds and reward them justly. Loyal hound, guardian of life and soul, watch over their journey, guide them and keep our night safe to mourn. Great Sage, Librarian and bookkeeper of our deeds, record their names to history and never let us forget their sacrifices" a old woman says, not looking at the unlit funeral pyre and I can imagine why, as more and more of the towns folk join in her prayer a step or two behind her own chanting cont
>>1890130"Watcher of the dead, right hand and revered angel of the crone, let their bodies be umolested and their souls and memories pure! Kind old farmer, We ask you, gentle and kind soul to let their farms flourish without their hands to tend to it, send your rains and dutiful servants so we may celebrate these lost men , and not toil in the fields before we have a chance to help their spirits past on"I stop, as the rest of the mob rushes to their family, or gets swarmed by them. A few little kids nearly running into me and erret, crying and blubbering when they see their father's again.But as heartwarming as this is, I notice none of the players that were in town are here, and when my curiosity gets the best of me and I wander past the crowd of families that's formed around me....I quickly see where those assholes wentThe Tavern is filled to the brim! but I don't think there's a single villager in there. they all seem to be discussing something and have pushed their tables together inside there. At least they aren't drinking....but a quite a few townsfolk seem to be.What do I do? give a few words/prayers/ a speech for the funeral see what they're talking about in there call the mayor out for trying to hide this shit! Try to cheer up the kiddies? 1d20+learning?Go back to the tower Just join in on the celebrationsAsk the guards why they didn't try and stop this sooner? What are they pussies?

>>1890225Don't worry, the players have taken over the tavern. Only fun things can happen when players take over a tavern!
Reputation in Carolton raised to friendly-"What are they doing in there?" I think out loud as I push the worn down and creaking old doors open, and peek my head into the dim tavern. The barkeeper isn't even in, just all of the players sitting around together. Yeah this isn't going to make them really popular with the masses here is it? What the hell are these idiots doing? I can understand not wanting to be around corpses and funerals in general, but they do realize this makes them look like utter bastards right? I mean the chanting is a bit creepy if you don't know what it means, but come on! why aren't any of them outside"Hey what are you guys doing in here?!" I ask loudly as they all turn to me "Oh, you're alive!" the minotaur from early shouts in relief and surprise "i thought for sure you got yourself killed""Well we're not sure if she was even risking things, I mean this could still not be real""I mean it seems pretty real""Yeah you couldn't do what she did before and...well the npcs were never this advance""its just the new dlc""Our brains are probably fried! how could this be real!? its like a shitty anime!""And we're all seeing the same stuff? Bullshit!""It could be a dream?""I don't want it to be real""Hey we have magical powers...some of us at least, we're can get through this. Hell it could be fun"Alright I kind of like whoever said that"How are we going to get back!?""Hey you, why'd you go out there? come on we need to figure this out sit down and""Yeah no' I say as they all start arguing and talking over eachother, closing the door as a few of them stand up in a threatening manner"Why is everyone acting so oddly today, my master?" Erret asks, tilting her head and looking like a confused kind of scary puppy.I look towards the pyre and see most of the members of the mob kneeling before it as they begin to light it up with candles and torches held by the women and children of the town....yeah that really does look culty doesn't it"I don't know" I say, lying through my teeth and shrugging as I begin to walk away from the funeral "But I know you don't like Pyre much Erret, do you want to stay here for one"She opens her mouth, closes it and then looks back at it as it starts to burn"it'd be the respectful thing to do but...no I do not, Lady Belua" She says meekly, gripping her scythe tightly as her eyes sparkle with tiny little stars"Then lets go back to the tower, we can always mourn with them later" I say as I begin to walk towards the open gate "Besides its not like we knew any of them""That is true....I just hope the grandmaster won't keep us for to long" she says as she follows after me"Yeah, I do to. But not like I'd know what to say if we stayed now" I sigh as begin to walk into the forest and down the path that leads to the tower I started in before this became real "never been to a funeral"cont
>>1890318What was our rep before?
>>1890318"Oh I'm sure you would!" Erret says happily "You were a good leader today, I thought, so surely you'd figure it out, master"I smile and chuckle"I don't know" I say shrugging.

>>1890362I don't see why not, but I do get the feeling we'll need to find a more militaristic mentor to learn advanced war magic like that. I could be wrong though.
>>1890348Time to sit down, open a book and realize we can't read the local language
>>1890378Runes are not exclusive to war. Pretty sure druids and normal mages can also learn it.
>>1890391True, but we are a War Magus after all. And a soldier mage could help us get closer to Gun Mage
>>1890394I'm guessing it'll unlock once we have a magic gun. Not even sure if gun mage is a real class. For all we know, it could just be a custom build.
>>1890407Either way, we are the perfect character to bend the rules to breaking in order to bullshit our own class into existence.
"So Erret" I ask after a minute or two of walking, as the smell of smoke begins to blow towards us on the wind, smelling....well terrible actually. Never wanted to smell what people being burned smelled like. Thank god its faint, but its still disgusting "Do you remember how we met?""Oh of course I do master!" She says more cheerfully than I've heard her before now "I was living on the streets of Westhold, the best I could hope for was to be ignored, Until you came....I was lucky Cornibus as taking you around toladar to learn the basics of magic or I would've never met you. You were the first person to ever be nice to me, giving me a piece of bread even though I'm like this. I even tried to run away from you, thinking you were going to...."She frowns and then smiles"How could I ever forgot?" She asks cheerfully as we turn down the path that leads to the clearing with Cornibus tower"I didn't think you would I was just....reminiscing" I say with a warm smile as we begin to stomp up that fucking hill with the jagged pieces of gravel making the only path up to it"It is my happiest memory, so its nice to look back on it after what we did today" She says sounding a bit happier now."Ah, Belua and tainted one" the old alchemist npc says, polishing his boots on the doorsteps of the castle "Cornibus is waiting for you in his study, he told me to tell you that...also my apprentice has been twitchy today, wonder if he drank the wrong draught, ahaha""Oh thanks Mr Randolph" Erret says as he gives her a dimisive look "Anyways, he told me of your valor, but now I need to gather the sulfur my idiot of a student failed to gather" He says, grimacing as he looks back to the tower "I only wish you had an interest in the arts of alchemy""Yeah good luck with that" I say waving as he walks past me, with my tail "Be wary, there's walking corpses about...the taint is touching the land here in recent times" Erret adds on "I know, its why I am carrying some holy Solvent" the old man laughs, looking a bit like a saner Rick as he does so.I smirk, hearing a faint sobbing as i walk into the tower....guess the alchemist I killed before this all started is hiding out in the broom closet. Ah well, when he's not crying I can talk to him. Not like I care about rude people like him anyways.Walking up the stairs past the stained glass windows depicting wizardly figures and books and the candles that light themselves with purple flames, I begin to hear a strange whirring and thumping as the air starts to get clammy and cold.The door to the library/study is open and pure white smoke is hissing out of it in a strange unnatural way. I cover my nose, it smells like a hospital...to clean and somehow disgusting.Erret steps back, covering her mouth and pulling her hood over her eyes as it gets closer to hercont
>>1890456>hill with the jagged pieces of gravel making the only path up to itObviously, he has the same bad taste we do in enjoying others suffering.>"I only wish you had an interest in the arts of alchemy"Haha!
>>1890456-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLAb3U8JjN0-"I apologize if I forgot to warn you, I am burning holy incense to make the room ready for the artifact" Cornibus says as I cover my face with my arm and walk in. I can barely see him, now in gold and white robs, working in the center of a at least dozen floating lamps and saucers with burning incense sticks in them sitting around him filling the entire room with that bleach smelling smoke."Come, set your pack down so I may retrieve the blade and set it in the containing orb" He says, smacking a glass orb in the center of a silver brazier that has the symbol of the seven toladarian gods carved into it, as well as various pipes connected to glass and metal jars filled to their brims with bubbling liquid."Cornibus, I'm not sure I asked before but why did you take me as your apprentice?" I ask as I slowly unsling my pack from my shoulders and walk up to him "I've been wondering about that...did you have a reason?""You had potential and it would've been wrong to leave a child as you were in the ruins of your town after Dires had devoured the rest of it....even if you had lived, the razlithurians would've found you and made you a slave. I simply could not leave you behind, lest I lose sleep over it. You're arcane talent was just an added bonus...now...the blade please, Belua" He says, holding his arm back without turning away from his device, as he continues to tinker with it, turning valves and tossing powders into the orb as it begins to fill with the same smoke as the rest of the room is....but thickerI open up my backpack and reach inside of it, but he grabs my hand and shakes his head as he moves it away and dips his own gloved hand inside."You've filled it with knicknacks again, I did not give you this to store reagents" He grumbles as he roots around it "Hmmm, no that's not it...ah here it is"Carefully, he pulls the off white blade out of the bag and struggles to set it within the person size sphere. I swear I can hear the blade screaming and hiss, struggling to free itself as it moves like its alive....but I'm not sure if I'm actually seeing it.conthave to take the dogs for a walk, and no one can wait five minutes for me to finish writingSo I'll finish this up when I get backshouldn't take more than fifteen minutes
>>1890512Alright HM, tell the doggos we said hi

>>1890595Oh, yeah, HM, what happen to the other apprentices? Surely at least a few of them still haven't left beginner town #2.

>>1890674Or was it that we were the only one that didn't grieve the a.i. that day?
>>1890512It feels like a dream in this room, the air shimmering like a hot day but differently, fumes and wet sprays joining dry fogs and sparks in the air as it becomes hard to breath, like a big dog jumping on you the second you sit down after you took it for a walk.I don't know how but its making me feel exhausted and slugging while the old man just keeps working at a pace of someone a tenth his age could do easily. The blade falls still in the ball of glass, hissing and screeching like a cat dunked into a cold bath."Good, we contained it without incident, now" He says, taking off his mask, revealing his wrinkled old face, looking like he once had sharp almost male model esc features that have been worn down and melted into that of an old scrooge who looks like a mixture between an encouraging grampa and fucking professor snape if he lived to be two hundred "You may rest, with or without my aid, I wouldn't ask you to aid me in such an endeavor""Oh, well I was going to go grab a book or two before I relaxed, you know" I say, glancing over as the smoke begins to clear....seeing two books sitting on the table. by the fire place."Encyclopedia Arcadia" A book with green leather and roses and thorns carved into the front with gold and actual real gemsand the other one"The Devils in the stars" A book wrapped in paper and coated in silver chainsI reach for them and suddenly feel a hand on my shoulder"Too many secrets revealed in one day are dangerous, Belua" Cornibus says softly, his long mustache brushing against my back "Rest. one as young as yourself deserve it after what you have done and seen today....You may observe me if you wish, but do not study more, you need to let your spirit and mind rest, dear Apprentice"Well?

"Come on can't I just read one of them?" I ask, trying to look as innocent as possible as I turn back around and see he's covered his face back up with the mask....guess he doesn't like showing his face? Must be because he's elderly or just shy. Maybe he just likes looking mysterious "Wouldn't do any harm to get some light reading in while I relax would it, just a few pages at the very least""after I am sure you've not been tainted" He says calmly, turning his back to me "I am confident that you haven't been, but there is a reason I do not let your servant touch the books, they're priceless treasures and I don't want them being tarnished"God he's a clean freak isn't he? taint can't even be spread that...gah. I frown and look up at him as he leans closer to me and huffs, breathing heavily due to how stuffy the room is. I really hope he doesn't have a coughing fit right now or something?"The test will take under a minute, I just need to destroy or otherwise contain the artifact before I do anything" He says calmly as he turns his back to me "it will take awhile, if you wish to observe you may, but I will not take the minuscule risk of you and my books being tarnished, so rest, sit and watch or find something to pass the time if you are set on borrowing part of my collection""I get it, I get it" I groan, sitting down on the chair I was sitting in when I logged in, resting my head in my hands as more warm steam and mist flows into the room "Your tower, your rules....just don't keep me waiting""Work like this can't be rushed" he says bluntly "Wait or don't, you may learn something if you observe"What do I do try and sneak a peak at one of the books while he isn't looking *which?* 1d20+dex Don't pay attention 1d20+will to stay awake Watch closely and see what happens 1d20+learning Ask why the smoke was hurting Erret Wait you don't let Erret touch the books? write inI'll be right back, grabbing some grubWhy not discuss plans while I'm gone?

And just go with smoothbore to fire coins and rocks until we acquire better materials .
>>1890992Also, to use the gun like a staff and fire magic as well.
I am backsorry about the wait, traffic and shit
So what magic should we specialize in? We have lighting orb, but we could still change some things. Maybe add wind, water, or fire?
>>1891125I'd personally want explosive and fire magic, with anything good for trolling thrown in as a bonus. And Errat should stick with summoning and other dark support type magics, to keep our bases covered in the magic department. And we still need to flesh out the party a bit to fill in any other roles we need.
I say once we learn runes and inventions, we make a motorcycle and explore ruins until the plot catches up with us.
I groan and lean forward, holding my hands together as I watch him carefully. Well if I have to sit around here for who knows how long then I might as well get the chance to learn a bit. At the very least it'll help me survive and have some fun in this world. I frown, shifting in my seat as I push back the question that I haven't even thought of before. What if I'm stuck here forever? I bite my tongue, and curl my tail around my lap. Right not going to focus on that! need to distract myself before I freak out. I don't think I would cause, I have magic now but...still its a little disturbing to think about. So I need to stop thinking about it,it'll ruin the mood and any fun I can have today to cool down after the mob incident and what happened during it!"Why was the smoke hurting Erret?" I ask as he turns back to me for a second and scoffs"Because it was sanctified, she may still have her soul but her body has been and is being twisted by unwholesome force, ergo it has that effect of her....being purrified is a terrible experience i've heard, even in such a small scale" He says calmly as he goes back work, tracing a metal wand over the glass orb as the blade with in shakes around and stabs at the globe of glass keeping it inside as more and more alchemical magic looking stuff pumps into it.Cornibus leans backwards and begins to chant, raising his hands up to pull a few more valves and knobs. As he does, the blade begins to glow or rather the space around it does. its like its trying to eat up the light and push away whatever he's go in there to purify it? I frown and lean closer as the line of darkness between it begins to slowly fade away, falling into the blade as it begins to drip and sweat out. Purple, black, blood red and sickly green....those are the colors I see in just one of the drops of Taint? flowing out of edges of the blade like its drooling. I think I know what he's doing, I'm not sure but I think he's scaring the taint out somehow by forcing a bunch of holy crap and magic at it. But there's something else that's happening to the blade to. Namely its cracking and rebuilding itself or trying to. It seems to be struggling to stay together as it shrieks and cries out in a way than no inanimate object should be able to.If he's trying to purify it instead of just destroy it, I can see why most tainted don't do much but pray to the gods for help. Because if this is what needs to happen to force taint out, I don't want to imagine what it'd do to a person. Seems like it'd be messy though.What do I do? wait for him to finish, then grab one of the books I saw ask if there's anyway to save the blade itself leave and learn a bit more about erret on a walk around the tower's grounds see if the alchbitch is still trying head back to town bored now, going to find something to kill/zap to death put my goggles on to see what's actually happening to the blade write in

>>1891229> ask if there's anyway to save the blade itself> put my goggles on to see what's actually happening to the blade
Still, can't be sure that's what it is. I mean I can't see what actually happening inside of it and don't have a clue what I'm seeing besides my guesses. But thankfully I have just the thing for this! I knew I bought these Googly eye glasses for more than just seeing stealthed players, hidden monsters, doors, traps and faeries. Smirking, I reach into my backpack and pull them up, putting them on and smiling as I look back up at Cornibus and the demon tooth blade.What I see is just fucking horrifying. The drops rolling down it are tiny hands crawling up the side of it, their fingers being burned off with each spray the device hits it with. Screaming, half melted faces without any features rise up in the glass and fall into the puddles of darkness and filth at the bottom of the brazier, which start to boil as lines and hooks of light fire into it. Images flash by in the glass, too quick for me to actually see what they are but I can tell they aren't of anything good, knowing what taint does to thing. Slowly all of this madness and poison begins to merge together as an impish little demon forms in the glass, shrieking and clawing at the glass and cornibus looks down it and tilts his head. The imp backs of shriek and howling as parts of it begin to just diseapear"Seems it was a fang of a demon filled with wrath, born of the strife of brothers killing brothers" He says like this is the most normal thing he's done this week "Not much power was left in it, the power had thankfully faded....now to destroy this disgusting artifact before""Wait, is there anyway you can save the blade itself, and just....clean out any taint?" I ask standing up, as the old wizard reaches for his staff"Why? demons may have strong fangs but...it is still with a tainted past, a mundane sword would be less conspicuous and suspicious, why would you want such an ugly thing" He asks, keeping his staff raised into the air What do I say Cause its cool looking! Pretty please? *puppy.....Pangolin eyes* It'd be able to hold magic easier right? if it could hold taint SO I can kill demons with it! wouldn't that be ironic It'd be a reminder, of the failings of man and my..own uh, recklessness as well as the dangers taint hold I dunno, maybe sell it to someone I can use it as reagents! *shrug* Iunno Why wouldn't I?

"Why wouldn't I?" I ask as I walk up to him, and he hunches over his staff, setting it back down on the ground "it might be useful""Oh? it has misfortune woven into it's very being, how could it be useful for anything besides misery?" He asks with a soft chuckle "But continue, tell me how you would find such a thing useful, convince me""It could hold magic easier right? if it could hold taint" I say as he tilts his head like a ticking clock "SO it'd be easier to use it to kill demons with! wouldn't that be ironic?""And what makes you think that?" he asks as I frown and clench my fists, looking around at all the books around meroll 1d20+learning

>>1891759The dice gods want us to have that sword it seems
"Simple, because demons are creatures of pure sin, taint and evil" I say not meaning to actually open my mouth as the reason it would work just comes to be like a light only just switched on or a tv turned on "Their physical forms are only made to hold their malevolent spirits to interact with and so ruin our world. Since we can both grab the fang and it hasn't long since vanished, that means it doesn't need to be destroyed as it would've faded long ago if it needed what's left of the demon's presence inside of it. This of course means that if you do it slowly and squeeze out the remaining corrupting filth you'd be able to leave the fang intact, and since it is unaturally made to hold a demon's essence, it would do the same with our gift, magic"He pauses and laughs."I have taught you well" He says proudly "I see you didn't sleep through all of my lessons, Belua. Fine, since you understand its properties enough, I shall salvage it for you. Never say I am not a kind teacher"H...how did I know that? I was just bullshitting right? I mean I say stuff all the time without thinking so it has to be like that right? I just spurted some nonsense out and I was right? BY GOD I AM LUCKY TODAY?!"Now, I can change its form if you wish" He says calmly as he moves back to the weird deviceWell? (all come with the "Dark past" trait/ ability) Keep it as is *Demon Fang Saber. 15+strength damage Make it a katana (Bone blade, 15+dex) Make it a greatsword (Tail bone cutter, 17+str damage, requires 5 strength) Make it two daggers ( Incisor slicers 10+dex/speed damage) write in

>>1891848>bayonet>definitely for a future gun or anything
>>1891856*bayonet+dagger, because a bayonet is similar in size to a dagger
>>1891848> Keep it as is *Demon Fang Saber. 15+strength damageI honestly don't see us specing into dex, and this form seemed really cool anyway.
>>1891848 Keep it as is *Demon Fang Saber. 15+strength damageWell whatever we end up with needs to be one handed to pair with a shield
>>1891852or knife bayonets>>1891866It's kind of necessary for gun mage for dex
>>1891848> Keep it as is *Demon Fang Saber. 15+strength damage
>>1891872Not necessarily, we cold turn into more of a siege tank type build if we wanted to. But either way, we should make it into a bayonet later, once we actually have a gun. Right now that would be a waste I think, if we can reforge it later. And I think any player with a crafting sub-class can do that no problem
>>1891848 Make it two daggers ( Incisor slicers 10+dex/speed damage)Gotta go fastScaling with 2 stats is usually the best
>>1891891Nah, pretty sure it's staying forever a saber.
>>1891891Also, carol has sword and shield, so it'll be essentially fighting the same way to me.
Also do you want to equip the demon fang saber?
>>1891906Then maybe it can be our back up weapon/catalyst? It's always important to have your ranges covered, plus explosions and indoor combat don't mix very well.
>>1891921Yes please>>1891918That's fair, but the shield is more of a place holder than anything else, we'll probably sacrifice it to something out eventually.
>>1891922That's why I wanted a dex weapon.
>>1891906Nope. if you find some one with the talent to reforge it, it is possible to but would require some more....materials
>>1891922Yeah, but it is important to put all your points into a couple stats. Why would we put into str for mele and dex for range when we can put into dex for both
>>1891921Sure>>1891918 Mali is a casterMay has a Warhammer (not that she ever actually uses it to fight)Kimi is a damage sponging TankAnd we played a gunner in HM's one piece questAnd Eve used a lot of ranged weapons in USNQAre you suggesting that just because we've done it before we should never do it again?
>>1891944Fair enough, I'm just saying it'll be good to have if we start to find strength gunning more appealing. Also>>1891940
>>1891953I mean, unless you want a light machine gun or an actual cannon, str wouldn't play much of a factor and dex would still be really important.
>>1891940I mean, anons are just going to keep voting to reforge it as a saber, since we're going to be raising straight>>1891946Yes and no. I'm fine if we're playing a similar build from an already inactive quest, but both active quests MC's being essentially magic swordsmen don't sit well with me.
>>1891959An actual cannon might be cool. If we can make regular bullets as powerful as artillery shells, imagine what we could do with actual artillery shells. Just something to think about I guess. Or we could reforge it into the entire gun, to keep it's lineage and have an integrated bayonet.
"Oh no that's fine, I don't want it to be anything else right now really" I say as he places his staff over the glass orb, the little imp thing melting into nothing as I pull my glasses off and see nothing in its place"I will make adjustments to make sure it is....cleansed" He says dully "Inscriped leaher replacing the blood stained rags, and a silver chain to seal in any remnants of the filth that birthed it....shouldn't take me long to finish the process but it will require my attention so....if you would Belua, leave me to my work"What do I do? leave Leave and grab one of the books *which* go check on the town...and the other players See how erret is holding up Spend my gold in town, maybe buying Erret something? just wander if the forest for awhile Check on alchibitch Take a nap....I'm tired as hell check out/ learn about my new body now that I have the time toRoll around on the hills to pass time write in>>1891981the gun thing is possible if you find one skilled enough in the craft

>>1891981I mean, using multiple runes on the firing mechanism would probably cause a lot of problems, so we would either fire massive shells like artillery or have really really fast normal shells.

I don't even have to walk to the door, he just waves his hand at me and I get gently pushed to it. Thankfully it waits for me to pull my tail up so it doesn't get smashed between hardwood and a stone wall. Looking over my shoulder, I feel a little annoyed that he just did that but see my tail and I start to wonder what's different in this "new" Body of mine. I mean I tried to make it look like myself...er more or less with a few changes here and there but, well the character creation screen doesn't exactly show me where my scales are and stuff like that. Ah well I can always look myself over and learn all the little secrets of my new slightly beastly self. Not like I have anything to do in the morning now that I'm trapped in da'ta for who knows how long. SO why rush things? I need to get used to all this, including my body. But before I do anything, like take a much needed bath to get the smell of rotting and burnt flesh off of me there's a few things I need to do. Namely see how Erret is doing after I forced her into a whole lot of situations that'd be uncomfortable or fucking horrifying for her.Thankfully she hasn't gone far, and is cleaning out the alchemist's equipment now, stopping to glance over at the supply closet when the alchbitch starts to cry inside of it."hey erret? How are you holding up?" I ask, as she jumps and nearly drops the vial she was rubbing clean"Oh, I am doing fine. Thanks for worrying my master" She says with a nervous giggle, as she gently sets the glass vial down "I am just cleaning up, since they forgot to do it themselves again""Are you sure? I thought you'd be a bit more shaken up with what we've done today" I say, taking another step down the stairs "I...I was but, with you I wasn't in danger, Fire just...its a scary for tainted like me, especially with how much we dealt with today. I am just glad we have saved others from sharing my fate. As much as it was uncomfortable, I was still able to help you complete your good work, master" She says cheerfully, as she dumps one of the half empty vials into a wooden bucket"Are you really sure? You seemed pretty twitchy earlier, scared out of your wits even" I say as she hangs her head"But you promised to protect me, so I had nothing to fear" She says happilyI smile and nod."Well I think I'll go shopping in the town after I take a bath and "exercise" around the hills for awhile" I say, walking away from her towards the door with the bath carved into the front of it"Isn't that a little?" Erret begins before she slowly stops talking as she goes back to cleaning "Well, don't tire yourself out too much master, the cut on your arm does need to heal steal"I just giggle and shake my head, closing and locking the door behind myself. the room is.....well its pretty baren, with a fogged up window hanging over the bath set in the stone floor, bigger than...cont
>>1892097well modern ones and with strange red rune sitting on the underside of it....probably filled with fire or heat spells.There's a mirror set in the wall on the right side, and a few hooks for clothes on the right with a bench under them. All in all compared to the other rooms. It isn't grand, it isn't fancy. Its just kind of cramped and basic, with the smell of unscented soap hanging in the air.Checking to make sure the door is locked up tightly, I walk over to the mirror and pull the sleeves of my robe up. Scales cover the backs of them, with tufts of soft fur. There's less on the bottom side of them....And the closer it gets to my hands the less scales there are overall. But the closer they are to my shoulders more.Well I'll have to get my breastplate off to look closer. tossing the ornate, golden piece of armor, I pull my robes down to my shoulders and....yep, scales all down my back, they start to thin out around my neck. They actually don't feel uncomfortable at all, nice to the touch if a little rough in places. But I don't feel them at all until I touch them.Pulling my robes back up, I lift up the skirt part and put my leg into the air. Hmm, there's more scales here than my arm but they're also smooth? Oh these have a nice feel to them, but just like my arms they don't completely cover my legs.I drop the hem of my robes. Well I guess it makes sense, since beastkin were made to be servants that had the might of beasts and men, taking the best parts of both. So I guess this is what is the perfect combination of Pangolin and human? Certainly doesn't look like an abomination against nature....man I am glad I chose pangolin, this body is so cool. And I know my tail connects at the bottom of my spine so I'd have to take my robe off to check that out.I frown, wiggling my fingers around. Yeah there's a bit harder to....well use than I'm used to. Just a bit stiffer....kind of feel less limber to, but that could be just because I seem to have made a habit of hunching over since this happened. Yeah probably that.Well enough checking myself out for now, I can do more of that when I get dressed and have some privacy, right now I just want to take a bath and let my hair down for awhile"COLD COLD!" I yell, "You need to let the runes heat the water up first, remember master?" Erret giggles in a creepy, monotone way as I clamber out of the bath and curl up as close to the warm sunlight as I canAlright! never jumping into cold water again unless my life depends on it or its a dare-"Okay okay!" I shout up to erret as she looks at me with a bit of a frown, I just laugh and run back up to the top of the mountain, yelling happily as I start to run and roll back up into a ball, bouncing down the hill and rolling through the bushes and small saplings on the edge of the forest.cont
>>1892134I laugh louder as I unroll and spread my arms and legs out, my face burning as I work back up the energy to run back up again, and tuck my arm and legs back in before I go back down to rolling....again!-What do I go shopping for? Weapons armor Knick nacks survival gear Some books from cornibus Potions from the other guy food writein
>>1892136> survival gear> Potions from the other guy> food

actually do you guys mind if we put this off till next thread? so we'll be able to do this easier? Also because I am getting tired and because due to what's happening in the town of carolton now it'd be easier to have Sadie/Belua go shopping a day or two later in universe
>>1892252Sure. Thanks for the thread!
>>1892252Not a problem HM. Great thread as always, thanks for running.
Alrightwe'll end hereI've archivedwill answer any questions andnext thread will be more exciting than this one
>>1892276Thanks for Running HM
>>1892276Could Gun Mage be a class? I mean, it could work like in Deadlands with the Hexslinger
>>1892276It's cool HM, a slower thread is good every now and again, and there was no real way another fight would make any sense right now. You did good and we got a cool ass eventually-magic sword out of it, and that's all that really matters.
>>1892292gunslinger + magic classes>>1892299oh i know, i'm just sayin it will be
