As the sun shines through the dirt of your cockpit, you realize two things: one, this is not the polluted fringe world you remember steering into, and two, your map systems can't pinpoint anything. There are no signals on your comms. You are lost.You are:>An Ace Pilot. Master of mech combat, and good looking, when it comes to sustaining your vehicle, you rely on others. You're helpless without it.Perks:-Asspull - Negate a failed roll once per combat-Rockstar - All favors done have increased renown-Top Gun - Bonus to ranged attacks.-Shoot-Em-Up - can 'fire all weapons' once per combat. Cannot stack. Next turn is skipped.>An Operative. A covert agent for the military. Your mech is merely an armed vehicle to you. Master of combat and stealth outside it, you still need backup of other agents.Perks:-Close Call - An attack that would kill you cannot once per battle.-Sound of Silence - bonus to sneaking without mech.-Cloak and Dagger - can silently kill an unaware target once per combat with initiative.-Platformer - able to climb walls and jump over gaps normal people cannot.>A Mechanic. You just were taking this thing on a joyride, oh shit. You are in so much trouble. You know this mech inside and out, and can fix anything. what you can't, you can jury-rig.Perks-Strategic Retreat - Fleeing will be successful.-Electric Eye - Can scout with remote drones.-Unbroken - Weapons cannot be destroyed, only disabled in combat.-Survival - Bonuses to building and repairing.>Choose one

oh hey, birth of a new quest.i vote ace too.though persnally lets call shoot em up the F.I.F.E protical. (fuck it fire everything)
>>2123446we can do this, yes.

>>2123545so, ray or rex?
>>2123548I'm a fan of Rex more
>>2123560this QM has good taste
also got a image for you QM when we use our 'fire everything' ability. i like to picure this is how we activate it IC too
>>2123545>>2123538>>2123526>>2123497An asymmetrical. A bit swifter and heavily armed, you feel a bit safer knowing you have the durable war machine under you. The specific model though, is what makes all the difference.>Newt. A big, fat, practical weapons platform. It relies on keeping distance to hammer targets with range.Armaments:-Cruise missile array. - fires cruise missiles. seeker weapon-Railgun - the most powerful in anti-armor kinetic weapons, easy to fire.-2 heavy cannon turrets. - staple weapon-Additional armor>Axolotl. Experimental, and mounted with stealth tech, this mech can turn invisible! It can either get close or take foes at medium range.Armaments-Energy blade/mech claws. - A blade that slices through armor like hot butter, and claws that can tear through metal.-Heavy Anti-armor cannon - staple weapon-Cruise missile silo - fires cruise missiles.-Seeker missiles - seeker explosives.-Stealth system - go invisible.>Salamander Squat and oddly rounded, the Salamander bears the latest weapons in warfare, with a powerful reactor to power them.Armaments-Onager - meant for downing starcrusiers, mounting this weapon was a miracle.-Energy Beam - A mining tool weaponized as a great beam of death.-seeker missile bank - small seeker weapon.-Heavy Anti-armor cannon. - staple weapon-Top secret power supply - allows use of atypical weapons.
>>2123578>right, choose one please, and the story proper can begin!
>>2123578>>Axolotl. Experimental, and mounted with stealth tech, this mech can turn invisible! It can either get close or take foes at medium range.
No love for the salamander, I see...
>>2123593im pretty sure were orks. we pick the clas with the ablity to fire everything, then we pick the meck with the best daaka-to-boom ratio
>>2123578>SalamanderJust because you said >>2123593.But realistically, the salamander's armaments' ranges don't match up together too well, which means Shoot-Em-Up becomes less usable. And, of course, superweapons always tend to have some annoying downsides to their use.Meanwhile, we have bonuses to ranged combat, which makes the Axolotl's melee options less preferable, even without considering the hassle required to actually get into melee range.
>>2123601also because railgun missles and twin guns... wait a minute, that sounds supicuosly klike the weapons an the acutal metal gear rex!?
>>2123590>>2123588>>2123585>>2123580Not one for subtlety, you chose the massive brute of the Newt, terror of battlefields.You wipe the windows clear of your cockpit. Around you stretches... Trees? Trees. Are you on a resort world? That's not right. That'd be light-years away from your post at best!Checking the comms trafic, you find... nothing. Zilch, nada.For some reason, your fuel and ammo is reading as full. you were shorted for the excercises though... what's happening? You survey the lay of the land...There is a city! No, cities have spires into the clouds. This looks like a walled recreation of an ancient city humans once made, with a palace in the center. IS this one of those worlds rich LARPers buy to pretend to be medieval?There's a town closer to you too! Along a river you can see a great plume of smoke and a crowd of people within a wooden wall. There are no electronic signals. Is it a performance? There is a stage.Off to one side, you can trace a river out of this forest. it extends into mountains behind you.There is a large gathering of nonhuman lifeforms on your sensors away from the town and city's direction.>what's your course of action, pilot?
>>2123608well THIS is a twist.town i guess?
>>2123606Each plays differently. The Newt is basically a brute. none of them are bad choices.>>2123601>only the onager is a superweapon.The Salamander is intended to bring a decently rounded set of weapons intended to either kill outright or sustain fire.
>>2123608What's our sensor suite like? Can we analyze the town from a distance?Otherwise, switch off most of our auxiliary systems; we may want to conserve power if there isn't any resupply to be found in this foreign environment.
>For the record, if anyone is worried, yes, there WILL be mech fights
>>2123618you knwo what, il lsupport this
>>2123618>>2123621You flick off auxiliary systems, causing outside air to seem in. Vegetation. You haven't smelled that since you were a child... before your homeworld was evacuated... The nostalgia. No time to reminisce. You check your sensor suite. You have good range on your mech, enough to listen in if you stay in the treeline, but at this range, you can still scan.You can read 300+ human life forms. Traces of unknown energy, and no electronic devices. There is a bonfire in the center in town. About ten people are positioned around stage, while the rest stay in a large crowd. you find large amounts of forged iron, concentrated at two buildings and the humans on the stage, save one.>What do you do?
>>2123625do we have aux speakers?if so, aprrach and state our intetions
>>2123627What are your intentions?
>>2123630we come in peace? idk
>>2123637>>2123627Regrettably, your mech is not meant for civic action, and has no speakers you can use. Normally you'd use any nearby speaker system and hijack it, but the town and city lack this system.All you can do is hide and listen in, or stride right into town with your mech... provided you stay in the safety of the machine.
>>2123642should probbly wait, suddenly im the only person in this thread right now
>>2123647I'll wait a bit. then sleep if nothing happens.
>>2123647I think its a witch burning or something similar
See you in maybe 6 hours, then after work!
>No choices on what to do, I see...
>>2123824observe from afar
>>2123625I'll support >>2123647 and >>2123827 in waiting and observing. We mainly need intel on our situation more than anything else right now.What do our sensors tell us about the terrain away from the settlement?
>>2123830terrain following the river is mountainous. the settlements appear to be in a valley of sorts that opens to rolling green hills. the lifeforms are located in dense forest.>>2123827>>2123647you move your mech to a minimum distance of the town to hear. the trees obscure the mech, but you are able to listen in just fine. There is a large wooden structure at the edge of the village with a large amount of the strange energy within and a few human signatures. There is also energy coming from the men around the stage, who appear to be wearing armor, and a woman. There are human lifesigns fading in the bonfire that dominates the town center.You have arrived just in time as the woman is brought onto the stage. "By the decree of our revered goddess, and the holy empress, we find this woman guilty of abusing the power of our priests without declaring her loyalty to the holy empress! She shall be sentenced to purification in cleansing fire!"The woman, who has been masked with something, protests, "Please! I'm not a heretic! I've healed families in this town for years! Someone, stop them! They were-""In addition to this heinous crime, this woman was also found guilty of stealing from the granary and stealing livestock to sell to the forest folk. Hence, she shall have her hands removed before the cleansing.""It was them! They were stealing! I would never!" The crowd merely boos her into silence and pelts her with rotten food.Hey, they're actually burning people alive there. LARPing or not, that's too far. In violation of SEVERAL laws.>What should be done?
>>2123862Time to stomp in there and fire a warning shot, smallest ordinance we have. Then pop the cockpit and tell them to knock their shit off.
>>2123862>Dont head out. Use external speakers. If you have those.>Also fuck you've been isekaid.
>>2123862I'm assuming our standard rules of engagement would have us first give them a verbal warning to stand down.
>>2123871Shit, what are we gonna do for power on this thing?
>>2123868Fire warning shots, DO NOT open the cockpit. Please don't remove the one advantage we have in this world which is our armor, stay a max range
>>2123862can we lewd her after we save her?make an effort to rescue her>fire warning shots>open cockpit and demand surrender>>2123871we dont have speakersbeing isekaid with a mecha is best isekai>>2123882its a reactorit should have virtually endless powerammunition may be a problem
>>2123886for fucks sake don't open the cockpit its like you people want to get stabbed!
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>2123868>>2123871>>2123876You look for your speakers. The mech isn't meant for civic duty, but you do have a warning system... It's... loud.You drive your mech in, stepping over the wooden wall. the reaction from the crowd is immediate, screaming and scattering away from you as you level your guns at the armored men on stage.Your microphone wines as the loudspeakers crackle. Your voice, altered by your helmet, booms through the town."Attention, you are in violation of federal law. Cease your activities at once, or I will have to use force."The soldier stares at the Newt, dumbfounded, before motioning to the other men, "By the goddess, a demon! Someone notify the Holy knights! Men, attack with me!" Leaving the woman tied on a post, a group of the men rush the feet of your mech.>You are in combat, roll for- Hahahahah, what am I kidding, these morons are trying to cut through carbon nanofiber-lined titanium alloy.Then the large building bursts open. Rising from the shadows of the wreckage, a humanoid mech is visible. No power signatures detected. It has a lance and a sword... and no ranged weapons.>Next action?
>>2123893Demand the mech stand down as well, or be assumed as hostile and responded to with proportionate force.Make sure to keep distance, and open fire if it makes any aggressive actions.
>>2123893>strafe the shit out of that mechdo we have thrusters for big jumps/flying?
>>2123886don't expect a detailed lewding. But yes.Off to work, returning in 7 hours.
>>2123893asses new mechs threat level does it have hostile markings or IFF? is for unload on its legs to prevent it closing distance with its sword. keep on the move to prevent yourself from being an easy target
I know I'm late to the party, but why oh why would we ever NOT choose the Ace Pilot class in quest that revolves around being in a mech? It makes the the entire first third of character generation seem pointless.
>>2124086simpleHow are we gonna get repairs for this mech?congratz we now have to find a way to maintain this mech with no support in medieval fantasy land, or find a friendly mech pilot who can actually fix things
>We now have to find a way to maintain this mech with no support in medieval fantasy land, or find a friendly mech pilot who can actually fix things.Unless this QM really knows how to play with tropes and subvert expectations I suspect some form of support will be made available sooner or later.Maybe the Covert Ops might have been viable but then everyone would have been wanting to constantly leave the mech and be Solid Snek, or a Ghost. In which case it's no longer a mech quest. Then again if we doubled up on a stealth character and a stealth mech that might have been interesting.All the same the entire premise of this quest primes the players to pick Ace over other possible choices.I used to wonder why QTG seemed to think character gen was bad ,but these days I'm starting to realize why.>>2123893Might as well submit a course of action while we're here.>Shoot it. None of this diplomancy bullshit, we are in a big stompy mech with a railgun. Let's make use of it.

>>2124518Well, we have a railgun so given the proper preparations it could fire even a raw iron projectile but range and accuracy would suffer but punching power should be unaffected given that the projectile is the proper mass. Cruise missiles and heavy cannon turrets might be a problem though.

The shot goes off, perhaps you hit your head when you appeared here? Regardless, it gouges a hole in the ground just behind the mech.The strange humanoid vehicle glances back and pauses... You'd think the pilot never saw a railgun shot before."Unlicensed mech!" You assume this due to the lack of IFF or registry numbers, "Stand down and state rank! Any closer and I shoot!"The other mech turns back to you, pointing the lance, "By the goddess what sorcery was that?!"These guys are really taking the LARP seriously. You note that the mech's armor on one foot has taken damage from the debris. ...from the debris... it was damaged by the rocks you kicked up. What sort of armor does this thing have?The ammo gauges... read full. Wait, it just reloaded... storage is full. That can't be right. Your ammo sensors must be borked.

>>2124998>>2124985>>2124977You aim every weapon on the Newt towards the mech. Gripping the Mic, you repeat, "Stand down, state name and rank! You are breaking code 6840, possession of an unregistered mech and Code 6540, possession of a weaponized mech. There will be no further warnings."The other mech draws the sword with its free hand... it's steel. The sword is steel."You face Quixote of the Royal Knights of the Goddess! I am the destroyer of giants!" You absently wonder if he confuses windmills for giants. It takes a hostile stance, "I won't stand down for the likes of you, monster!"He's gonna LARP to his grave, isn't he? It looks like he's taken a defensive stance.>Next action?

The shots blast the legs off first, then the arms, in accordance with disabling tactics. After this, your barrel rifling needs to cool. You don't know where the cockpit could be, but it's not in the limbs. The mech collapses to the ground, its limbs blown apart. The helmet's light flickering. The strange energy readings are rapidly lowering."H-how? I couldn't parry-" Quixote cuts off, immobilized. You look about, noting the soldiers at your feet were trampled while you shifted position to fire... whoops.Between the downed mech and the bonfire, the woman stands, chained to the stage.Quixote is disabled.>What do you do?

>>2125531>>2125436>>2125477You move your mech to step on Quixote's, just to be sure. Lowering your vehicle, you open the cockpit. Your pistol drawn, you climb down. It seems the villagers are hiding from the mech after it beat the shit out of their guardian.The hatch to Quixote's mech is easy enough to open. You level your gun at the man."Is that a pistol?" Quixote asks, coming to. he seems find but, very much tied down by his straps."I ask the questions." You reply, tying him in before rescuing the woman. She's easy to free. You simply shoot the chain free."W-what are you?">You have both this woman and Quixote under your power. What to do?
>>2125561>Name, rank and ID.>Then interrogate them about what the actual fuck.
>>2125561>women"I'm the best at what I do,and right now that is saving you.">knight dude"I'll ask the questions pal."I really want us to be super cocky about our ace status and go strutting around.

general consensus is cocky? alright.

>>2125578I'd like us to be cocky and have a healthy ego but still a decent person, Someone who is very skilled but also wrongly believes he can solve any challenge with his own skills and determination.He is full of himself but not an asshole about it. someone who tries to "Rule of cool" whenever he can simply to look good, brushing off mistakes and errors with a quick "Meant to do that!"
>>2125567>>2125569>>2125571"I'm the best at what I do, and right now that is saving beautiful women." You respond. The chained woman stares at you incredulously as if you just said you were the master of love."S-so... you mistook me at a distance and rescued a convicted witch? Putting yourself against the church of the All-powerful goddess?" She stammers. You realize up close that this girl is a mess. she probably hasn't slept. If it wasn't for your suit filters the smell of the town would probably be awful. A+ for authenticity LARPers, ew.You move to Quixote, "Right, I'll ask the questions now. Where'd you get the mech?""The what?" Quixote is confused."The giant armored piece of shit you tried to fight me with. The thing I blew apart.""The... Goddess Knight? You mean the goddess knight, right? The Empress awards them to the royal knights... who are you if you don't know this? To be this close to the capital..." Goddamnit, there's someone supplying these?"Where does SHE get them?""I will never betray the Empress! The goddess will smite me from on high for such betrayal!" This Larping is getting seriously annoying."Kay, drop the roleplay, buddy, I'm pretty much the army.""The what? You are of no army I know of! You're a coward hiding your face under that mirrored mask! A demon, sent to test us! I am nothing but the lowest rank! Other knights will destroy you, fiend!">What to do?
>>2125603>"Look kid, I don't want to hurt you, but I'm getting real tired of your shit. So you're really going to have to drop this LARP shit of yours and tell me what I want to know. Now, where the hell are we?"
>>2125603State name, rank and allegiance and ask him again to drop the actlets see how long it takes MC to get he got isekaid
>>2125603Btw what is our name, rank, allegiance?
>>2125608Captain Alex, Proxima Aquarii Federation, 4th Fringe Machine Infantry.
>>2125610Something like:I am Captain Alex, Proxima Aquarii Federation, 4th Fringe Machine Infantry, and you will not fuck with me, so drop the fucking act!
>>2125603"Lowest rank huh? so your the bitchboy that got handed a hand me down Knight because you kissed enough ass to make your superiors take pity on how much a of a bitch you are.">try to get him wound up and angry, might say something important while he is irrationally mad and not thinking with a cool head
>>2125610What is the Proxima Aquarii Federations stance on enhanced interrogation?
>>2125620Officially? Against.>Operative class is needed for the true stance
>>2125622Operative would have been nice, butits too late for that
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>2125613>>2125607>>2125606>>2125614>>2125627"Look, kid, I don't want to hurt you, but I'm sick of this LARP shit. Tell me what I want to know. Where the hell are we?" You ask the pilot. Quixote growls back."WHAT IS LARPING?! You're in Solgast! Just outside the holy city of the Empress! The Sacred city of Luxia!" Wait what if they spent generations larping? Holy shit, the kids would never know it was all a sham!"I am Captain Alex, Proxima Aquarii Federation, 4th Fringe Machine Infantry, and you will not fuck with me. Tell me where the Empress gets your damn mechs!""Never!""You're the lowert rank, right? That means you're the bitchboy that got handed a hand me down Knight because you kissed enough ass to make your superiors take pity on how much a of a bitch you are.""You heathen SCUM!" The knight spits at you, "I will see you flayed alive for this!""Please, I broke your shitty knight, the whole country frobably is just as easy to take down! Maybe I should march right to the capital, grab your whore of an empress, and burn her in this pretty campfire you made for me!" You respond, tired of the LARP shit."You bastard, you think you can take down the Knights?! the come from the goddess hersel-" The knight cuts off... to scream. It's like he's being burned from inside. He goes a glowing white, then implodes, leaving an empty set of pilot armor.The woman is horrified, "T-the goddess smote him."Holy fucking shit. Okay, so something literally burns things inside out here. Maybe the witch can help? Will she do that too?Is it brighter out?>Roll a d100>next action.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>2125628>will you do the same if i ask too many questions?
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>2125628Fuck Fuck Fuck, play it cool you just watched a guy get fried from some kind of insurance plan this empress has in place. Stay cool there are plenty of surgically inserted devices that could do that, but this also means they were listening and/or watching the exchange.It might be time to make like a bread truck and haul buns>"Tactical retreat." with women, make sure to carry her bridal style while being as heroic as possible back to the mech
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>2125628>"Okay, this is officially weirding me out. What the hell was that? Who is this 'Goddess'?"
>>2125634....all my support...TAKE IT...JUST...TAKE IT
>>2125628How is the food situation?
>>2125631>75>76>success>>2125634>>2125637>>2125638You manage to shake your head clear of something that felt... bad... only to find yourself removed from both mech and woman. Someplace filled with mist and light.A strange entity, looking like a beautiful woman with wings... and a halo, looks at you with reproach."A shame, I couldn't burn out your soul. So the one killing my worshippers, disrupting the purge of heretics, and destroying my knights is an outsider..." She states, glaring at you.Her eyes narrow, "I didn't bring you here, but since I can't kill you... I'll have to summon another to do it. You don't look like much... One hero should do it."With that the world fades into being... You stagger, the witch is beside you."Are you alright?!""Tactical retreat." You scoop up the woman and carry her heroically into the mech. After you set her down in your cockpit and quickly shut the door do you take stock.Okay, so there is... SOMEONE who claims to be a goddess... who can override your senses. Gas? No, the dude was dead. this is an illusion, right?>What to do now?
>>2125641Retreat into forestGive girl food (if we have food and let her sleep)
>>2125640Food status: had a big meal before going out. Also some nutrient bars. Like a box of those things.
>>2125641Is godess for lewd?
>>2125645suggested and supported
>>2125641Double fuck! This...this can't be magic!But she just teleported you some how and tried to burn your soul, ignoring the fact that teleportation is barley even considered remotely possible, she just tried to BURN OUR SOUL.Calm down, you are the best at what you do.>>2125645Do this, we need to take inventory get our mind in gear and think over what happened.>>2125647Getting our dick burned off sounds like a bad time.
did we jsut barly pass a 'save or die' roll? jeesus crist QM its a bit early for that.
>>2125651Only hand holding then>>2125654More like save or get soul immolated
>>2125654I'm not going to tell you what the roll was for. The fact you beat it will affect the entire quest though. For the better too.
>>2125656Please let it be a roll to seduce
>>2125647she's kinda mad at you.
>>2125658Is she cute when mad?
>>2125657>CoughsYou still beat her roll, you are fine.>>2125659was she cute last image?
>>2125641Hmmm...>>2125647Precedent is that it's not a great idea.
>>2125645>>2125650>>2125651>you have 30 nutrient bars. each is a meal.>You have a peanut butter and honey sandwich you made before training. it hasn't gotten weird yet.You decide to hand the woman one of your nutrient bars. She looks it over befopre nibbling it. She quickly scarfs it down."S'so good!" She says through a full mouth. Yeah, no, these things taste horrible. Processed bricks of god knows what with flavoring.You take her down from the cockpit to cargo. it's largely empty. You manage to throw together a place to rest using canvas cowling and tell her to sleep there.You take stock of your parts. There's enough to repair joints and recouple weapons. The toolkit is basic. the air canisters can probably help cycle air if you turn off aux power... actually......Fuel is still full. Ammo is still full.What the fuck, you used five rounds! there should be 20 left! You check the sensor on the rack, and the rack...The rack is full. As if you never fired a shot...You realize your mech is standing in the middle of a town you just fought in... near a capital under control of... something... that hates you.>what's the next action.
>>2125665Oh, shit, I forgot about that one!It's a tad too lewd for me to play though... so I never have.
>>2125667head innawoods like we already establish qm...
>>2125667*slow manical grin as you realise ammuntion conservaation might not be an issue.*
>>2125670innawoods mech in the woods...*insert gangster referance here*
>>2125670oh, right, yes. I totally didn't forget that. Hahah.
>>2125672>>2125670>>2125651>>2125645>>2125650You stride into the forest, dipping into the trees. The mech, now hidden, needs the lights on to navigate under the dense foliage. you're a good distance now... The city to one side, the town behind you, rolling fields after. Ahead, a cluster of lifesigns... to the opposite side of the city, mountains at the edge of this valley.The river makes a pass up there. Interestingly if you focus your sensors, you can detect VERY slight electrical activity, but it flickers in and out, as if buried underground.The forest lifesigns are not human, but near that size. They appear to be where the forest is far more dense. smaller lifeforms flit around the outside of this region.
>>2125676>decide on what to do, please.
>>2125676Lets investigate i suppose...FOR GLORRY!!!!
>>2125676Avoid life signs we already stirred the hornet's nest find an isolated spot with little of intrest so we can lay low.tread in the river to cover our tracks, we need sometime to get info out of the woman
>>2125680what time of day is it?if it is lateish hide and sleep till the next morning
>>2125684wrong >> but whatever
>>2125679>>2125680>>2125683>>2125684You stride into the river, ascending into the mountains. Very little can be spotted on your radar, a few massive signatures in the distance... like a whale's size. On the surface.You catch flickers of life around one mountain and electric signals. Further up the river is a crude, walled town. You see some figures riding creatures... wolves. armored wolf riders?There is a lifeless side with a spike of strange energy.what the actual hell? Those are costumes, right? Okay, those guys GOTTA know they are Larping.You head to the hold, the woman is fast asleep...>next course of action?
for the record any fanart is greatly welcomed...
>>2125691hide in mountains and restwe cant do a lot until we can ask the girl some questions
>>2125691Avoid anymore native contact for the time being. Get some answers out of our witch.
>>2125704i had just asumed she wasnt a witch, but now that i think about it she could actually be legit.
>>2125691I guse find a cave that dosnt have a dragon in it and wake up the witch time to talkAnd ir mybw nap idkWill we become the deamon king of this world?
>>2125693>>2125704You nestle your mech in an alcove, hiding it between rock formations. You head down to the cargo hold where your sleeping passenger is. It doesn't take much to awaken her. Groggy, she looks toward you. the bit of sleep seemed to help her but it's not near enough."Wha? Where?""The mountains... now, first things first. Will you burn out from inside from answering?"She shakes her head, "Not a follower of Mera. Only priests and royal knights do that. I'm a heretic.""What makes you a heretic?""Used magic that wasn't church-approved." Okay.... she did say magic. That doesn't exist. No way it can. We're talking fantasy stuff here. wait wait... could still be LARP. Magic could just be any sort of technology they hide somewhere. Man, these guys are seriously committed.>What should you ask about?
>>2125755do you wish to become the demon king? It is a possible option...
>>2125896Who are you and what do you mean by magic?
>>2125896>Let's... still go with the assumption that this is a LARP. What's the premise of it? Who are the major players here? Who is this Goddess - the 'Mera' she mentioned, you assume?>Where are you? What major settlements not Goddess-aligned are close by? You'll need to find some supplies eventually, especially if you have another mouth to feed.>Who is she? What does she mean by 'witch'? Where is she from, and where's a good place to eventually drop her off - since you assume she doesn't want to stay with you indefinitely.I'm of the impression that, as a Captain, one of Alex's main priorities would be to reunite with his men. That would require reorienting himself and finding a way off of wherever this is. And naturally, upholding the regulations of the Federation - though one thing you learn rapidly in the military is just much those regulations can be bent without breaking them.Most other things would be secondary. Even getting laid is something you do in bars when off-duty, not on the battlefield.
I will return in 7 hors, after work, or during my lunch break if time allows. See you soon!
>>2125896Idk ask her what day, year it is and what planet we are onThen maigc??Also who are thr wolf riders
>>2125910this but first ask her how she is feeling. we may be full of ourselves but momma raised a gentleman not a savagealso ask if she has anyplace to go, make sure to pop our helmet so we look less alien
>>2125896why wake her up?
>>2126188We have to wake her up inside
>>2125930>remove your helmet with filtration on an unknown world with unknown pathogens next to a native who has been in poor hygenic conditions.I am not sure that is a good idea, anon...
>>2126519yea not good idea, but if we quickly explain our situation then she might believe us and give us some options.also,if we apparently have unlimited mech ammo,do we also have unlimited sidearm ammo?
>>2126580You would have to test this to find out...Drawing next entry.>>2126536You and me both, pal.
>>2126974How do we know what there saying??
>>2127081That will be explained later! It's related to our unlimited ammo.
>>2125910>>2125930>>2127435>>2127469"Are you alright?" You ask, trying to make sure the girl is in decent shape..."Better than I've been..." She replies, groaning."I'm Captain Alex. What's your name?""Mine? It's Hilda...""Who are the major groups here?""Aside from The Empress? Well, there's the pantheon, but in the holy empire, only Mera has power... unless you go outside human lines...""Right..." You don't get any of this. Pantheon? "What settlements aren't under the goddess?""Well, the forest folk, for one, the dwarves and orcs in the mountains come to mind... for humans, those are far, far away.""Alright, so... assuming you don't know the location of a starport-""A what now?""...nevermind, you won't break character. What's a witch, and where is a safe place to take you?""A witch is... someone who doesn't use typical pantheon-based spells... more... atypical ones. And... that town was my home, I was born there. I don't have anywhere else...""Are you actually a witch?" You decide to ask for clarification."If I told you yes, what would you do?" She stares at you in clear worry. To be fair, you did just gun down the biggest toughest thing she might have ever seen.>Next action?
>>2126519But how will we lewd people?Will we have to wear a full body condom?
>>2127687>this matter can also be solved. Sooner than you think.
>>2127622ask her to show us
>>2127622I would ask you to show me what a witch does. Can't judge you on zero evidence, innocent before guilty and all that.
>>2127622"Nothing,there are no laws against being a witch according to my governments laws; of which I am a just a humble enforcer. Now let us get rid of that collar, you don't belong in chains as long as you are in my mech".>remove the chain around here neck
>>2127750we have toolkits, which should have wrenches or something usefulhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jJP0CcuJyEThis is not rocket science Bindings only work if the prisoner is restrained and has no access to such implements
>>2127750>>2127746Supported....I'm sure we've got a cutter someone in there or at least a wielder...or *something* that can cut steel.
>>2127800>StealMight just be iron
>>2127802>[even better wrought iron does not stand up to rigorous tool abuse at all
>>2127806Or we could let her demonstrate her magik on the shackles
>>2127810either way it get broken so what ever, just as long as it gets removed
>>2127814On the other hand it could be useful when we lewd her from behind
>>2127818too soon. also do we even have condoms, cus having kids is not a good idea.
>>2127824I also didnt say now
>>2127810>>2127800>>2127746"I'd ask you to show me the magic you have. We have no laws against being a witch where I come from. I'm just a soldier. Now, let's get rid of that collar. You don't belong in chains in my mech." You pause, "Can you free yourself?""I would if I could. This iron shackle is inscribed with sealing runes." Well, that's interesting. You dig through the toolbox. it's standard equipment, a plasma cutter, welding tool, multi-function tool, melding glue, nanopaste, insulated gloves, welding mask, and the toolbox itself if you wanted a weapon... Wait, plasma cutter!Grinning, you grip the handle, the tiny blade of energy lighting up, "Hold still." the beam slices through the collar lock like warm butter. it falls to the floor with a metal clank. Hilda feels her neck."Wow... what an amazing tool..." she stares in disbelief."Can you show magic now?" You ask. She nods, producing a black flame above one hand...hah.hahahahahah... This is an illusion, right? Like stage magic at casinos, right? You reach out to touch it, and she quickly makes it vanish before you make contact."Are you trying to light yourself on fire?!" ...so it's dangerous? Okay then... "Are we in one spot? We should probably go find somewhere to hide from the royal knights!""Any suggestions?""Well, there are the dwarves in the mountains, and the elves in the deep forest, but finding them is near impossible..."You get the feeling that something is awaiting you where the energy readings in the mountains were.>What to do now?
>>2127852Head to the mountains and find some dwarves!
>>2127852Ask her if we could learn magik
i am now regretting not taking the mech with the top secret power supply. it was some kind of mana battery, wasnt it?
>>2127860Incorrect, as the mech is not available now, I can tell you: it was essentially a miniature star. The power output was tremendous.
>>2127860could of should of would of, tripfag that is how the cookie crumbles>>2127863That sounds stupidly dangerous to use planetside one bad hit and you have rouge miniature star.>>2127852> head for dwarven lands, dwarf are stereotypicaly good a building shit, maybe they can help us
>>2127852>Get her a bathStop by the river so she can clean herself
>>2127870...your mech has no soap.
>>2127877Just water is a good start and magic can do the rest
>>2127856>>2127866>>2127871You clamber back to the cockpit. The mech slides out of the alcove. You want to find the dwarves. Hilda pokes her head up."Oh! You're already here! Uuuh... I've only heard traders say dwarves are here. I thought they had a trade post..."You look around with sensors. The crude camp lies in the distance.>This is a local camp, possibly full of 'orcs' all you know is they ride big wolves.There is a mountain with strange energy readings coming from it, and a path you can just make out.>This seems to call to you. Are there answers to why you are here? Hilda can't see the path at all, but senses powerful magic... Not Mera's.A cave is far off. It looks too short for your mech to enter. A fire flickers deep inside, but illuiminates nothing.>You will have to go on foot here... given the visibility, that might lead to your demise.You could also return to the valley...>choose a direction.
>>2127900>There is a mountain with strange energy readings coming from it, and a path you can just make out.Time to become the servant of the "evil" goddess and fucking destroy that other lame one.That or its a dragon
>>2127900>MountainWe have no allegiance to anyone here or any interest in their petty squabbles, but we need intel so that we can get home.
>>2127903mech vs dragon. this souhld be good
>>2127900Cafe let's find some dwarfs
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>2127908>>2127903>>2127909You ascend the mountain. Hilda is scared, then relaxes as your mech somehow climbs the sheer slope using a path only you can see. It takes a while, but soon your mech stands before a blackened, spiky shrine."I thought those were destroyed! that's a shrine of-" The world goes white.You are faced with another god, but while Mera gave off light, this one gives off a sinister vibe."Mortal, you dare step foot at the shrine of Zavar outside a tribute day? You are either an agent of the usurper or a fool!" He draws a sword and pauses."No, wait, you are without her blessing... You have..." he starts to laugh, "You are a summoned one! Bearing the mark of... the pantheon? what is this..." He vanishes for a moment, leaving you in the white void.>Roll a d100

>>2127935This is a very high roll though and it's technically an artificial crit because of your slaughter of knights.
>>2127950Aww yeah wanton slaughter saving the day again!
>>2127935>98 + 10 (dead knights of Mera kills)>vs. 26>success.Zavar returns to the void he left you in, laughing, "So, mortal... Here is the deal... It seems the gods of the pantheon have had enough of Mera. So you were summoned, not by any of us, but the combined will of the pantheon... and dropped into Mera's territory. As such, none of us can claim you... but..."His glowing eye narrowed, "There is a caveat... You see, these shrines serve two purposes. Our followers worship here and give offerings, but our champions, summoned heroes, can come here after defeating enemies... and obtain a blessing."He sheathed his sword, "But since you were summoned by EVERYONE, you get a little... benefit. Should you complete a task for the shrine, you will be allowed to choose a blessing, or the blessing of two gods with interest in you. Be warned though, blessings done from other gods at one god's shrine will be seen as an insult, and you will be subject to a... modification of that blessing by the god who owns the shrine."I am Zavar, God of Corruption. I twist the nature of things. For making the pilgrimage to my shrine, I will offer a blessing to you... But two other gods,Krotek of war, and Oriith of innovation, also have offers... I will tell them to you now... Choose at your peril.">continues
>>2127958>Oriith offers the eyes of innovation, increasing your ability to create new things. Should you take this, Zavar will make it so that each item you create makes you physically weaker.>Zavar offers the forbidden art of dark magic... well, the ability to use it. He won't grant you spells. You'll need to find those on your own.>Krotek offers Warrior's speed, giving you the ability to melee twice outside your mech. Zavar will make it so using this ability makes you less intelligent, but physically stronger each time."Is it not an easy choice, champion? Heh.">choose a blessing.
>>2127958>Zavar offers the forbidden art of dark magic... well, the ability to use it. He won't grant you spells. You'll need to find those on your own.take this. if theres anything fire emblem taught me, dark magic OP
>>2127963>Choose none. At least, for now.What reason do we even have to trust this guy? We will live on our own terms.

>>2127970BUT DARK AMGIC
..never mind disregard the above post...
>>2127969To be clear, the vote is more for "I'm not taking handouts from someone I just met and have to reason trust yet." over "Take your shit and shove it up your ass."That said, we're an Ace Pilot, so casually offending people is probably a standard occurrence for us.
>>2127963>Zavar offers the forbidden art of dark magic... well, the ability to use it. He won't grant you spells. You'll need to find those on your own.Will we be limited to one kind of magic?

>>2127989>>2127983>>2127981"Fine, fine, I'll take your damn magic. Is it really a blessing if I'm being forced to take it, though?" You reply before the angry evil god."Good choice." He waves a gauntlet-covered hand and you feel some sort of... hot power course through you."A shame you didn't stay on that path, I could have used a new succubus." He is about to dismiss you when you speak up."Do you know a Hilda? She's been hitching a ride with me."The god pauses, "I don't concern myself with witches like yours. Maybe you can ask at the shrine to the nature goddess in that forest, or maybe you could find the goddess of information's shrine on the coast? Farewell, mortal."You are back in the cockpit now. Hilda is shaking you. "Please, talk to me!""Stop!" She lets go, "What the hell?""You were staring ahead and not talking for a long time! We need to get moving! I saw a dragon fly by earlier!""I think I can learn dark magic. Know any spells?""...Why would I know dark magic? That stuff would get me killed if I used it and anyone saw.">Next action?

>>2128001>Alright. We're heading to the coast. You alright with that Hilda? And, uh, while I'm asking, which way is the coast?>Also ask her for more details on the pantheon and magic of this world. If you're going to get caught up in this shit, you'd best be informed about it.

>>2128005>>2128004"How does magic work?" You ask."Kind of like a feeling? If you had a scroll or tome, it would tell you..." Can you even read such texts?"Alright... What's the story with the pantheon?""Well, there's evil gods and good gods. They make up the pantheon. Evil gods deal with things like corruption, disease, madness, decay, war, while good gods get things like love, purity, life, knowledge. Then there are neutral gods, neither good nor evil, like those of innovation, nature, weather... I don't know all the names, but that shrine was to a corruption god. His curses can twist beings into demons that act on his will, or his priests can do the same... or change the very thoughts of people.""And... they are at war?""...well, Mera sort of... ousted most of the pantheon. They still exist but Mera's empire eliminated most of the shrines they could find. She has shrines too..." ...shrines that you can visit that she must bless you at. Interesting.>>2128020>>2128023"We're returning to the forest." You announce, steering the mech back."What? but the dwarves, what about-""I spoke with the god of corruption... visiting shrines helps me out.""Visi- you-you're summoned! You were summoned here! But... two different shrines... how can two gods claim you?""None of them do.""...what? No no no, that's not right, each god chooses... if none summoned, what brought you here?""All of them.""..." Hilda stares at you with a strange mix of wonder and horror.Your mech stomps into the woods. The strange energy being detected is focused on... the palace of the capital... and in the direction of the nonhuman lifeforms deep in the forest.>next action?
>>2128024>there's a lot of gods out there, anon... but are you willing to sacrifice humanity for yuri?
>>2128037lewd, no, power though?
>>2128036Keep an eye on the sensors and on the systems...And internally debate on whether you should teach Hilda the basics of maneuvering the mech.
>>2128038well, that's also an option... Gods like to make rival blessings ironic, though, just warning.
>>2128036>Head towards the forest lifesignsWe have loudspeakers. Let us use them to make contact.
>>2128036>Well, there's evil gods and good gods. They make up the pantheon.Are they gods because they, y'know, supposedly created the world? Or are they more like Shinto gods, spirits that embody objects and concepts?>well, Mera sort of... ousted most of the pantheonWhat is Mera's domain?Also, are there any shrines to the pantheon as a whole? If not, would it be possible to make one? How are shrines created and destroyed anyway?>>2128037I would say no, but I'm pretty sure I'd get outvoted.
>>2128043id support you at least. no yuri. its gott a be hetro or lesbo
>>2128036Ask Hilda what kind of magic she uses
>>2128045>it's gotta be lesbo>no yuri
>>2128049ignore me i had a tard moment
>>2128049More importantly, did we bring any music with us?Can we make our Mecha dance to the Rumba beat?
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>2128048>>2128043>>2128042"What sort of magic do you use?""Human-made magic, mostly. My grandmother taught me from a tome back before the country became the holy empire." She paused, "they burned that book when they found it... after convicting me with it."You think a bit, "What IS Mera's domain?""Originally? It was peace. Now it's purity. well, more than that, she sort of took all the roles of the 'good' gods." She sighed, "Her followers would desecrate and smash shrines to destroy them.""Why are these beings gods?""...that's a good question. I think they made the world, but they all control parts of it." Hilda remarks. You note the lifeforms are avoiding your mech on the sensors... You are approaching the shrine. It's... a mossy stone, set in a pool in a glade."Use this if anything approaches, talk to it..." You hand her the loudspeaker mic.You take a step forward. The world fades to white.A green-haired woman with a placid grin and a relaxed expression faces you, "Hello, young one. I am Acarit. I see you are the champion of the pantheon... do you have questions?"she's not calm, you realize... she's stoned.>questions? ask for blessing?>roll a d100.
>>2128059ask where we can get some of what shes on? (JK) dont ask for a blessing, we aint greedy, and shes a fine looking gal. instead we ask what we can do to be of assitance

Rolled 100 (1d100)>>2128059> Ask if she has any good shit to smoke > See if she needs help with anything so we can earn a blessing.
>>2128073Dog!!!!! Oh my op please
>>2128073>>2128059AW YES BITCHES. WE HAVE ACHIEVED THE DANKEST OF HERB.
>>2128059All I want for that nat 100 is to have access to a bottomless dime-bag of primo shit. Fuck mechanical advantages.
>>2128073in this case, yes.
>>2128074We could ask for crits to count in the first 5 rolls.But that would allow nat 1's as well.
>>2128078Do we get the ability to hot box any room at will?
>>2128073>Crit"Have you got any of the good shit?" You ask Acarit. The goddess' grin widens."Fuck yeah I do, boy, share the love." with that she tosses over a bag of... well, you don't know what it is, but it can get a goddess high."Thanks, darling. You need help with anything?""Nah, kid, fuck that noise. All I need from you is to just... enjoy life, you know? But since you came here, I'mma give you a blessing. Course, there's other gods too that are interested, but it's cool, I'll just let you have a bit of what I've got is all.""You know anything about Hilda, the witch with me?""That girl? Sweet thing. Loves collecting flowers and herbs and stuff, doesn't make a mess of my shit. She's fine, you know? So, how about those blessings?">Anything before blessing options?
>>2128082>I forgot the picture! FOR SHAME
>>2128083Ask if we can give the blessing to hilda
>>2128082"Why am I here? I hear some kinda collective will wanted me here, but what I am I supposed to do? I kinda just wanna go home, y'know?""Also what's Mera's deal? She's supposed to be 'good', so why's she so unchill?"
>>2128085dis>>2128083>shes wearing a shroom hat.have i mentioned QM has godlike taste yet?
>>2128082I got a "blessing" from Zavar to use Dark Magic but I'm not really sure I'm cool with that.Could you tell me what it's all about?
>>2128082I wonder if Acarit can give us a blessing that will "evolve" Zavar's.Which would be oddly appropriate, since it would also in a sense be corrupting it.
>>2128090our dark magic is now dank magic
>>2128085>>2128086>>2128088>>2128089"So what's Mera's deal? Why's she so unchill?""probably to, like, fuck up Mera's shit and stuff. Maybe become a god. Fuck, boy, I just grow plants, ya know?""So... Free love?"The goddess laughs, "Well, shit, sure." Then you held hands and exchanged phone numbers.>You have obtained Nature's Love. +10 to rolls for meeting gods."So right, here's the blessings, man. See, if there's, like, shrines close by, gods offer blessing to you.">Mera offers Cleansing of darkness. You will be able to use purifying spells. Picking this will lock out your dark spells, and I guess you might be unable to get high? Something bad 'cause Mera is a douche who stole a bunch of my herbs.>Acarit offers Natural Cure. You will become immune to diseases and pathogens (but not the good stuff man, that shit still works.)>Mirna offers Arcane knowledge. She'll make it so you can cast regular magic and grant you a spell for any magic you know or will know. Oh, and, uh, if you pick it, I turn you into an elf or something. In glasses. Nerd elf. Mirna'll probably throw this at you until you pick it, FYI, dude."Yeah, man, pick one of those. But if you want my opinion, hold off on Mirna, she's got a shrine hidden by the river."Acarit gives you a lazy smile before she looks around, "Shit, man I want a pizza. You want pizza? Fucking... I'll tell the elves to make pizza, kay?>choose a blessing.
>>2128092>correction!"So what's Mera's deal? Why's she so unchill?""She's just, like, really uptight and stuff.""Why am I here?""probably to, like, fuck up Mera's shit and stuff. Maybe become a god. Fuck, boy, I just grow plants, ya know?"
>>2128092>>Acarit offers Natural Cure. You will become immune to diseases and pathogens (but not the good stuff man, that shit still works.)that bit on the end works best.
>>2128092>Acarit offers Natural Cure. You will become immune to diseases and pathogens (but not the good stuff man, that shit still works.)>held handsYou disgust me QM, quest dropped you pervert
>>2128092> Natural cureHey, I like to bulk up as much as anyone else. But it's kind of dull to just "go to place, get buff".I mean. I get that this gives us magical ability and all but it kind of feels like it's happening quick.
>>2128093importent question is the bag of 'good stuff' bottemless?
>>2128096>Drops out before the elf village.Shame.
>>2128098probably becuase of our crit.
>>2128098>well if you FAIL the roll... also, you wanted to be able to lewd, right? But you got a crit. had you rolled under, quest! fighting!...dying because I end up rolling a 95.>>2128099yes. It's a goddess' stash.
>>2128105well, I mean, we got high elves and wood elves here in this town...
>>2128110How high can we get the high elves
>>2128111we have goddess weed. Just saying.
>>2128113>we get so stoned petrifcation doesnt work on us

We gotta smokesome of the good stuff with Mera next time we meet her.

>>2128125i dont get it. what does 't. zavar' mean?
>>2128128He is a god of corruptionExtreme corruption of pizzaYou are obviously Zavar
okay, what does the 't.' part stand for
>>2128113>Mirna offers Arcane knowledge>'rn'>repeatedly posts 2hus imagesI'm onto you, OP. You lured us in with your military sci-fi bait, but this is actually Thinly-Veiled Waifus and Hats Quest, isn't it? If so, I will moderate my playstyle accordingly.

>>2128137We are getting pizza and are holding hands with a godess so im pretty sure we are way past that step
>>2128092>>Acarit offers Natural Cure. You will become immune to diseases and pathogens (but not the good stuff man, that shit still works.)Talking to this chick is reminding me of some of my friends in college and its only been a few sentences.
>>2128092>Acarit offers Natural Cure. You will become immune to diseases and pathogens (but not the good stuff man, that shit still works.)Yes to the pizza
>>2128092why would we got to the nature goddess if not to use her gifts?>arcait

The goddess smiles and something comes over you. You feel a bit healthier.The world fades into being, with the words, 'drop by again sometime at one of my shrines.' lingering.You awaken in your cockpit. There is a pouch of goddess's weed in your hand."They wouldn't leave..." Hilda whispers, pointing to something.Before you is someone in a hood. It appears they have a pizza."By order of the goddess, I have been told to give you a large pineapple-pepperoni pizza... and escort you to our village." Wow, the goddess actually ordered you some pizza.You note anothe has been left at the shrine. When you look again, it's gone. Should you follow the elf?>next course of action.
>>2128409>THERE IS A PICTURE TOO.I swear this quest is serious.
>>2128409FOLLOW THE ELF
>>2128412time to party like never before, Follow the elf making our mech have a swagger to its walk.
>>2128412Its time to partyTime to get so high that rexy gets high and becomse alive zoids likes
>>2128409>Follow, Say thanks for the pizza also
>>2128409take off helmet
>>2128524agree, let people know we are actually humanalthough, becoming a masked demon might be fun
>>2128412Did you have some of that goddess weed??
>>2129005outside the scared realm of gods? No, you have not used it yet.
>>2129827lets fix that, share with our gal.
>>2128412Lets follow that elf post haste
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>2128409> Pineapple Pepperoni PizzaWell. I know who my Waifu is now. Rolling to seduce for dirty hippy goddess loving.
>>2130057You will need to find another shrine to her for that.
>>2129833Woah. No driving stoned, get to the village first.
>>2130060Dude, our body is a temple already.
what we do now.. try out our deity teir weed.
>>2128409Follow the elf. Also, I do not support driving while high.
>>2130114Agreed. Trust me. If motherfuckers can't drive a forklift while high, they can't pilot a mech.
>>2130134I want to go one step further and offer the Goddes Weed to the Elves to smoke first to see just how high it makes people.Like, there's a line between a really mellow chill, and a spiritual experience that is as terrifying as it is enlightening. And I'm going to be irked if we smoke some good pot and end up tripping balls like we're K-holing because OP doesn't do drugs.
>>2130253Dude, they are High Elves
>>2130060Also she gave us her number.We've visited her Shrine. Let's smoke some shit, dial her up, and call her down to check out our temple.
>>2130253I'd consider punishing us for just using something given to us as a reward for rolling well to be a dick move.That said, punishing us for being stupid is far more acceptable, so we really oughtn't to be fucking retarded in how we use it. But as long as we avoid that we should hopefully be fine.
>>2130272We will be fine, we held hands
>>2130272Just saying, we have no idea how strong it is, if it's creeper, etc.The High Elves are connoisseurs here so let's get them to give us some guidance.
>>2130278Are we sure that 'High' has that specific meaning here? Not to say that it can't have; perhaps I've just missed it while reading. If not, I'd rather hold off on the stereotyping until we've actually interacted with them a little more, though, especially if it's on the basis of a pun.
>>2130278I am pretty sure its how we want it to be, its a divine weed stash.
>>2130286>beig worried about stereotyping in a fantasy world
okay, find somewher safe, then tyr out our good shit
>>2128423>>2128426>>2128502>>2130061>>2130114>>2130134"Thank you for the pizza, lead on." You reply, taking the pizza. The elf nods, her face hidden by a hood. You follow her as she moves into the area with the tallest trees.Then she stopped. With a few motions, she vanished. You looked around, an ambush? Hilda taps your shoulder and points up. A city of buildings attached to the tall trees.The next thing you know, there are elves on top of your mech around your cockpit."So, you met with Acarit? What did she say to you? What gifts or blessings?">What's your next course of action?
>>2130253I don't do drugs, yes, but I do drink.
>>2130307mention the bottemless bag of 'good stuff' and that your willing to share the love
>>2130307"chillax homies, I got enough of the goddess's love to go around she wants y'all yo know you still cool n shit.">don't be a bogart pass the weed bro! get a wicked pizza party going.
>>2130309>>2130316>>2130321>>2130322You produce the goddess weed. the leader of the group gasps and pulls back."A pouch of her stash... no, that's HER pouch! Do you have any idea what that is?""She told me it's the good shit." You retort, confident, "Why? Want some?""What some of us would do for a taste of that... it's said to be like ascending to a state of heavenly bliss. Only the grand elder ever had any, and he used it up!" Others must have not asked. Their loss, really."Well, I have it now.""...in endless supply. What do you want?" The gaze from his hooded eyes is hungry, like eyeing something he'd always wanted, "What will it take to get some of that?"Seems that they have a bit of an addiction to the high.Hilda leans in, safely silent inside your cockpit, "While they are often noble and arrogant to others, I hear high elves will do anything to experience the best high... They probably won't steal it from you though, that's a gift from a major goddess...">What action do you do next?
shit man, i dunno. im fairly new here, know the lcation of any more shrines in her name? or jsut shrines in genral? (we need a quest pretty bad.)
>>2130323Give them some of the good stuff
Teach Hilda some neat spells, or mabye provide us a bit of armor...or something...
>>2130329this works too.
>>2130323>Dude just share it. You have plenty.
>>2130323"get your finest bakers and prepare them for their greatest task, tonight we honor the goddess with the most legendary pizza party to ever grace this world!"> Throw a mega awesome weed and pizza party that will become the stuff of legends told to there grand kids, We are going to remake woodstock
>>2130332>>2130332Your mad...you utter mad......I LIKE IT!!!no but seriously helping Hilda get some spells or something may help in the future...I would suggest exchanging for spells and hosting a giant weed party after.
>>2130332HOLY FUCK THIS DO ITDOOOOOOO IT
At some point we appear to have transitioned from captain to hippie, and I'm not sure where.
>>2130338Hey after a long battle The mech cores were known for having wicked Victory parties. We are a captain, but we are in no danger, we have had a long day, its time to relax and let loose, Witch girl could use some relaxation
>>2130339>but we are in no dangerWe are in the middle of unknown territory. Its inhabitants possess unknown technology akin to magic whose workings we do not understand. And it is governed by capricious entities with deity-like power - one of whom is known to be hostile to us, and who has made some statements to the effect of summoning some unknown being to hunt us down.Furthermore, we're separated from our men and unable to serve the Federation we pledge allegiance to.In-character, I wouldn't even trust these elves. Possibly not even Hilda. Who the hell are they? Why should I take them or their words at face value?
>>2130332>>2130334>>2130336"Get your finest bakers and prepare them for their greatest task, tonight we honor the goddess with the most legendary pizza party to ever grace this world!" You declare."What." Hilda whispers, "Are you insane? doing this in the shadow of Mera's capital?!""Morale and R&R are important. also we can use this time to get some spells or something for you, maybe clothes, a bath, somewhere to sleep that isn't joint cowling...""...Point taken..."The elf bows, "Yes, right away. You... will share some of that with me if I do this?""I'll share it with you and whoever makes the best pizza here." That oughta get you good incentive. The leader rushes off in a flurry and vanishes, leaving the rest dumbfounded."So, uh, what can we do for some?""I'll let you marry my daughter...""I will have my father craft an enchanted blade of mithril...""An inn! my family has one, we'll give you the highest comfort... VIP treatment!""My aunt is a clothier for royalty! I'll get you clothing for a pinch, I swear." The rest begin offering things in exchange for some of your stuff.It'll probably take a while for this party to be made...>Next action?
>>2130346>that's right, anon, you aren't the only one who can get isekaid. It's happened in the past...
>>2130347Dismiss the crowd for now and chat with Hilda for a bit, ask her what she would want. Maybe a few tomes with a kickass robe? >>2130346Your very right but remember with all the absurd amount of stuff that is happening, gods with weed, infinite ammo and fuel. At this point i wouldn't say it was far off to say you could act like your dreaming after all we have not been harmed yet.
>>2130346>>2130350>>2130347>MEANWHILE...At the palace of Luxia, capital of the Empire, Daichi Ishikawa finds himself in another world, at the foot of the empress. He'd recently met a goddess known as Mera, who told him of a few terrible things transpiring in the world, before giving him a few cheat powers to make him stronger in this world.Just like a game, that's what it reminds him of. He kneels before the empress, pledging his service to bring the light of justice to these lands...>Back to our party...
...did everyone leave?alright, I'll draw your choices for what to do with the elves tomorrow.
>>2130358>>2130358i think everyone is just waiting...
>>2130359waiting? As in for someone to make a suggestion?Personally I'd go to the inn, since Hilda could really use a bath... unless the sleepless messy prisoner look is good on her... But it's up to you, the people.
>>2130361dis get her a bath
>>2130365lets do it :V
>>2130361No soldier in our unit ever skip on hygine! doing so could bring dreaded funk into the mech cockpit, no unwashed smelly damsel will enter our mech unscrubbed!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0xDGXotGIE
>>2130361>>2130365>>2130367>>2130369"You, inn elf. I'll give you some if you get us to the inn." The elf nods "You can's access the city, but we'll fix that..." He places something on the hull and leads you to the clearing where he vanished. Following behind, there is a flash. Your mech is in the midst of a city in the foliage. platforms below form streets and pathways. The elf guides you to a large building. Parking your mech, you exit with Hilda, closing the machine behind you.The city seems to stop and stare as you pass, bag in hand, as you enter the inn. With a few quick words, the innkeeper rushes you to luxury accommodations. Beds, a view of the forest below, baths, toilets... all the amenities of the wealthy, all for a pinch of weed.Hilda takes no time in going to the bath. You can hear her sigh in relief. You pop open your helmet, taking a bite of the pizza. It's good, certainly made fresh. You know the difference. a fresh canteen pizza beat frozen anytime.Hilda exits the bath wearing a robe from the inn, she stops and stares as you chew the pizza."You.. you do have a face. I was starting to doubt..." She admits, a bit embarrassed."Well, I am human...">Oh, right, important detail for Capt. Alex. Looks.>Handsome - more positive response from female characters.>Rugged - able to scare easier with interactions>Cute - +10 to interaction rolls. (convincing, persuasion, sedu- NEGOTIATING.)

>>2130373>handsomeThe panties hit the floor when we are around, well at least we believe they do.
>>2130373>Handsome - more positive response from female characters.It's not like we're planning to (I should say, not like I'll vote to) walk around with our helmet off, asking to take sniper rounds to the head, so we may as well get a better response from the goddesses we interact with.
>>2130379>>2130376You will lose this look modifier if you lose your humanity, just FYI.Will draw results tomorrow.
>>2130380I would rather stay human mate, gonna be kind hard to unlock the gene locks on the mech otherwise.Plus whats the point of being a human ace pilot if were just gonna trade it for magic and elf ears? Seems like it defeats the purpose of this whole quest and this choice, I like who we are would rather prefer we don't go down the magical realm thank you very much
>>2130383i think loosing humanity meant something like seizing to be mortal and becoming a god or a demon or whatever. elves have "humanity" too
>>2130383Good. Don't fall to temptation.
>>2130373>Cute - +10 to interaction rolls. (convincing, persuasion, sedu- NEGOTIATING.) Like baby faceBut we dont like getting called cute

Any progress OP?
We need to get tons of food rations from the elves, and then we need to get repair magic. If our mech gets fucked we are utterly fucked. We need a dwarwen repair magician crew or repair magic ourselves or something like that. Then we need some magic protection because I don't think our mech was built with that in mind.
>>2132203Just use the weed to get all that my manChill out beo its early days yet

Are there any spells for mechs?""The Mirna and Mera, goddesses of knowledge and purity would know. But, I mean, to get to Mera's you'd have to assault her capital right now.

You state, but Hilda is confused."But... Mera destroys all the shrines in her territory... Only shrines in dangerous areas are safe...""So... Acarit is dangerous?""REALLY dangerous. This is deep enchanted forest. if you weren't summoned, we probably would never be able to leave... Perhaps you should find a shrine of knowledge...""First thing's first though, we need amenities..."

>>2132891often times just lurk but this is a good thread, has a good writing style, and how OP is a drawfriend makes it great along with the setting, was expecting the typical crash landing/extremely lost setting, but this fantasy/larp world thing is a nice twist so keep it up OP.definitely wait for more people's opinions before making an update based on what i post, because i do not post in these often.Based on our situation, we should try and get water and any preserved/dried food that we do not need cold storage for from these elves, so we do not have to worry about it for a while if we are out in the wilderness for a while searching for shrines or on a side quest/odd job for someone, after the food and water primary need is taken care of, we should search the village for a store or anything we could buy that would be useful in a survival situation if our mech got stranded or wrecked out away from anybody who could help repair it. It would also be good to take up the elves who offered services in >>2130347on their offers particularly the guy who offered the forged mythril blade and the clothier, say we need proper attire for a meeting with a king or a party/gala/upper class party thing and not just our mech pilot gear, then the mythril blade for something we could rely on other than our sidearm and mech, or maybe we get challenged to a duel by one of the holy knights and we are not in a position to decline like a duel for our freedom if we are captured or if we want to appear honorable/masculine to a new waifu goddess i mean it's essentially free to us and it could be circumstantially useful and will take up virtueally no space in our cargo hold.
>>2133139cont after which we should search for anyone who could help us as a companion like an elf who could help us repair our mech or maybe an elven healer because if we get into a tussle outside of our mech (we definitely will at some point) no god damn way we will come out of every fight unscathedIt would be nice to find something to do as a side quest like fetch a lost item, escort a traveling elf bard to another elven city, just anything that would get us more conventional currency because it would be a nice change to hopping from shrine to shrine getting blessing after blessing from gods and goddesses, and OPs not gonna be this generous forever and we will come across a civilization/ township that will not accept a helping to a divine pouch of weed as payment for something sooner or later and some actual currency (or a item of value that could be traded or sold) would be nice to have for that reasonIt would also be useful to find anyone who can teach us any rad magix or survival skills because in the very first post OPs fluff text for the ace pilot essentially said (if i can remember) that he relied a lot on his mech and others for support outside of it, so if we are separated from our companion(s) we will have a much higher chance for survival or getting out of the situation un-injured
>>2133139ThisAdd common clothes to the shopping list, so we can be look inconspicuous
>>2133163Thank you. I try to make the quest as entertaining as possible without retreading. But you are right......things are going to get tougher. The world will react to you, and there are tougher things than a newbie knight with a flimsy melee mech.
>>2133163that about sums up what i think we should do or seek out in the elven village, if any anons want to add input or shoot down any ideas go ahead.first and foremost, based on this >>2130355Mera summoned a champion/hero of sorts to hunt down us just as we were summoned by the pantheon to take down Mera, we need more blessings from shrines to prepare our selves, seeing as we are stranded in a pretty hostile world we know pretty much nothing about we should get blessings, skills (for use out of our mech), equipment, and companions to aid us on this quest because we have a very powerful enemy with an entire empire of worshippers.I think we should seek out the shrine of knowledge immediately we conclude our business (and side quests if we get any) in the elf village to meet with the knowledge god to ask about the world its self, particularly about the sentient races that may help us, the outlying human civilizations that are not hostile to us/not in the empire, it's creatures and beasts/monsters, we know there's dragons and that's about it would be nice knowing what we may face on a side quest thing or just out in the world, along with possible repair methods for our mech, also it would be nice to ask about the history of the world, especially if it's actually a LARP world because OP has me very interested in the threads settingfollowing getting the blessing from the god of knowledge we should seek out a dwarven city/ settlement for anyone who can help repair our mech because if we haven't found anyone by then we will definitely find one in a dwarven settlement would also be good to find someone to help us use our magic, we currently just have dark which is cool, but I don't know about using it if it will make us loose our humanity the more we use itdon't really know what to add now but, yeah great quest OP i hope you go on with it until the end and don't end up dropping it, it is very good so far, i have a bit of input feel free to acknowledge it or not, but it would be nice to spend some time doing other things like side quests than jumping from shrine to shrine getting blessings until we are prepared enough to fight Mera, also would be nice to have to do something for some gods before they immediately just grant us a blessing just for reaching their shrine, i know we've only visited two shrines so far just don't want things to get stale.Again, great thread OP really like it so far, along with the fact that you draw along with your posts, hope you didn't take offense (for whatever reason) to my feedback just my input on the shrines, i may end up sketching out some art of some occurrences in the thread, would be nice to have a much more detailed/enlarged picture of the newt like the scale of it compared to stuff like buildings and trees so i have more to go on, along with weapon placements on it like what goes where so to speak.
>>2132891Apart from those, I'm still of the opinion that we should be getting as much intel as possible. Ask if there's a local library of some sort that we can peruse.
>>2133172thanks for supporting anon, and yeah we should definitely get some common clothes aswell if we need to blend into a crowd they will definitely be very useful
>>2133209your welcome OP quest has been very entertaining and interesting so far, definitely one of the bests on the board currently, i really hope you do not drop it and loose interest or have it go into a really long hiatus like so many other quests have been, and good to hear about the whole world will get tougher thing, because that whole battle with the low-tier bitchboy knight felt like the scene from indiana jones where he just shoots the arab guy who does all the sword tricks in the crowded street
>>2133172>>2133225Are we planning on spending extended periods out of our mech? Given our choice of character type, I assume it's best we spend as much time as we can behind a shitton of armor.This is, of course, working off the assumption that our primary goal would be to find a way home as quickly as possible, rather than become a denizen of this world.
>>2133227we would have to first learn if this was a LARP world which would have some form of communication or a spaceport or something to get us off world, if not and we are in a more medevial/fantasy world, where technology doesn't even compare to the 16-1700s of earth yet, in which we will likely be stranded until someone with a ship chances upon the world or we build some sort of a long range distress beacon, which seems unlikely, so it maybe getting home would be a much more secondary goal and a primary goal would be doing what we were summoned by the pantheon for, destroying/straightening out Mera the goddess of purityas for the staying in our mech thing yeah we definitely will be in our mech a lot of the time for combat especially based on our character type, but we are definitely able to do atleast basic combat outside of the mech i mean why wouldn't we be trained in that, sure we wouldn't be as great as the second character type for combat actions outside the mech, but we definitely aren't completely helpless in a pinch, plus circumstantially there will be a time where we can't move a mech someplace and we need to do something on foot, besides there will definitely be some combat outside of the mech eventually, and i'm sure we can pay someone for teaching us some skills like survival, or improved combat methods, like training with a sword, if we're outside in combat there's definitely going to be something our sidearm won't fix.
>>2133246Please bear in mind that this is a fully destructible world too.>>2133227So, go for food supplies?...Should I make a new thread tomorrow, since this one has autosaged?
>>2133251Threads last a decent amount of time before falling off page 10, so you're probably fine continuing here for a while if you want to.Food and supplies is fine. I'm not going to vote against what >>2133139 has said, just add on gathering info.>>2133246>where technology doesn't even compare to the 16-1700s of earth yet, in which we will likely be stranded until someone with a ship chances upon the world or we build some sort of a long range distress beacon, which seems unlikely, so it maybe getting home would be a much more secondary goal and a primary goal would be doing what we were summoned by the pantheon forI would argue that, since there is some kind of magic or technology that managed to specifically target and transport us over some unknown distance here, with no apparent will effects, there is a decent chance of there being something similar to send us back.Furthermore, we owe absolutely nothing to this pantheon as a whole - which, for all intents and purposes, kidnapped us, prevented us from doing our duty to the Federation and seem to be on their way to murdering us by proxy. Unless one of them can specifically promise us a return ticket, I would sooner seek out and serve the goals of someone else who can.Free goddess weed gets Acarit a pass in my book, though.
>>2133257assuming that this isn't a LARP world and this is a world with gods with divine power (definitely seems like it, a god gave us endless bag of weed and one gave us the power to do dark magic) there is definitely some way they teleported us there, so there must be a way back whether it's just them teleporting us at a whim or them showing us a hidden portal or something I didn't even think about "going back the way we came" so to speak thing. we TECHNICALLY don't owe them shit, but what are they going to do if we refuse the pantheon must be a pretty decent amount of gods so if every god is pissed at us for not obeying what's going to happen? they are going to send their followers, curse us whatever, they can't just smite us like Mera did to that one holy knight because we are an outsider but what's one guy going to do against most of the gods and their followers?then Mera has already summoned some champion or something to combat us like she said in our interaction with her then the whole meanwhile thing while we were meeting the elves and asking for pizza, so what's going to stop her from sending more? i mean strong arming the gods to give us a way back to the federation while another god that an entire empire worships is sending champions after us? i don't really know where OP will go with every thing but i'm just saying while you have a point in saying we don't owe the gods of the pantheon shit it might not be the smartest move to not follow through with what they specifically summoned us here to do.
>>2133222A detailed version of the Newt? alright...>Created by the Union of Stars, the Newt featured a variety of technology that became standard on newer walkers, but the newt remains the most stable weapons platform to date, operated by several intergalactic nations.The Federation Newt's servos are upgraded to match its faster descendants. The ability to mount traditionally heavier machinery without toppling is one of the greatest assets of the walker.Newts have seen conflicts on hundreds of worlds, and while the newer Axolotl is often fielded in battle, alongside cheaper vehicle mechs, the Newt retains its stature as a battlefield juggernaut, towering over many mechs.The older, robust design allows for armor modifications, and the large cargo space can be used as quarters and ammo stores on lengthy tours.Newts are the largest mechs capable of being transported via dropship, making them excellent logistics assets. It is not surprising that many pilots go out of their way to retain their mech over the years.A famous Newt, Black Betty, mounted a variety of customized weapons on its hardpoints. During the siege of Korsis VI, the mech had mounted a capital ship's laser weapon. Though the power supply had to be carried behind, it allowed Confederate forces to break the siege.-Federation Newt Primer.
>>2133251yeah sorry i over complicated things with all the secondary offers with the clothier and blacksmith, and definitely make a new thread tomorrow for now go with supplies and food, specifically anything non perishable that will last us a long time, then meet people in the village, to see if there is anyone useful or any useful services
>>2133276thanks OP drawing helped me understand the layout a lot more, ill get to drawing some art for the thread tomorrow if it turns out well ill post it, can't draw faces for shit so ill likely try and draw the mech battle with quixote can you tell me the size dimensions of the newt aswell especially compared to quixote's huminoid mech judging from the description of the mech you gave in in this post and the cargo hold being large enough to contian a truck i'm guessing its massive but any thing else would be great
>>2133291oh yeah meant to add, have you archived this thread yet?
>>2133254>>2133172>>2133139"Food is priority one!" You declare. With a robe from the inn (that she'll need to return) Hilda joins you in your shopping adventure.Unlike planetside, the cops won't try to bust you for having this stuff out in the open. That's kinda nice, actually. You head to the food stalls. Surprisingly you see a lot of human foods, but Hilda is shocked to see them."Wow, a burger! I only heard traders speak of these! And fries! Whoa..." She goes around to various fresh foods. It looks like the elves specialize in, well, food for the munchies. A few of the elves are actually baked at work, though it's only at the food stalls. You manage to trade tiny pinches of weed for a ton of jerky and dried fruit. Hey, it's better than nothing, right? You manage to secure a few kegs of elvish wine, which Hilda swears is a good trade good. You buy a couple more, since she swears the dwarves would kill for a keg.You tried to exchange money for some of the weed, but the elf just sort of stared at the bit you offered and started crying, claiming there wasn't enough money to trade for it. For a pinch you got a really big bag of coins, though.>200 gold coins obtained (tradeable outside the high elven city.)after you drop off your groceries in the mech, You and Hilda pause."I was thinking either clothing or a sword.""Ah, what about spells?""If they have them.""They have them, Captain Alex.">You have obtained Jerky - Elvish style>You have obtained Elvish Wine (7 kegs)>you have obtained dried fruits - elvish style.>Cargo currently has 1/14 tons full.>While storing things, you realized one of the mechanics left a crate of anti-sleep in the far corner. there is a lot in there, they only used four.You lock the cargo access.It occurs to you that perhaps a bed or two might be needed in the Mech with Hilda along.>What do you do next?
>>2133292this thread will be archived when I create the next thread.>>2133257Acarit appreciates the love, man.
>>2133291-In terms of size, your mech is 2/3rds Quixote's height. Your mech is 60 ft in height, with the legs not extended.-Quixote's mech is 90 ft.(extended legs, your mech's height would be 96')In none of these measurements are antennae counted.
>>2133299see about fixing that.
>>2133302your mech's body length is 66 ft.>>2133303fix what? lack of beds?
>>2133299Does Hilda WANT to come with us? What does she want to do with her life now that she's basically a fugitive?With regard to the bed, I believe we have a relatively large cargo space which I assume is reachable from the cockpit. We can convert some of that into a living space.
>>2133299ccloth shopping for us and Hilda
>>2133299>>2133303this, see if we can find some beds/ hammocks (only if they would take up less space in the hold) for us and hilda to use, along with more amenities to make the hold more livable, tables,chairs rugs (better than cold metal) just basically anything if it doesn't take up too much space.>>2133302>>2133303thanks for the measurements definitely did not expect something that large maybe would have drawn it like at around 30 feet so that definitely helped out, drawing would have looked off with mechs that small and i would have guessed quixote's was smaller even with the legs not fully extended at around 25 feet.>>2133307i would assume so, we rescued her from being burned as a heretic and supporting your idea to convert part of the cargo hold into a living space while leaving most of the space to bring goods from place to place the elven wine for example
>>2133303>>2133307>>2133319You head to a furnishing store. Elvish furnishings use magically formed wood, which is as durable as steel... They also have mattresses for the beds. The chairs and tables are the same, and give off an art nouveau feel. It reminds you of that fancy furniture the wealthy back home had. You take a couple area rugs, two chairs, and a table.The beds are a tough choice.>The bunk beds are much like those on your barracks. if you had these when you get back... yes, when you get back. Every other pilot will be jealous as hell. There is no loss of comfort, and you could use 3 before the allocated living area (the two rugs) under the cockpit is filled with your furniture.>The hammocks you can string up anywhere, even on the supplies. You could probably get quite a number, but why would you? Maybe if you plan on getting a repair crew... You'd need 6 counting hilda and yourself.>The luxury king-size. you can probably fit 2 of these. but they waste space and are kinda heavy.>choose one.After this, you think perhaps clothing or magic might be something to look into. Hilda keeps staring at the luxury bed and you."Y-you aren't actually considering this one, right?">next action?
>>2133339"Mabye but we might have space for only one " *cue suggestive eyebrows*
>>2133339>choose one.You can't tell me what to do! Okay you can but I just don't have to listen.Buy a bunk bed - since that's all we need right now - and 6 sets of hammocks in case we pick up more people or (god forbid) are forced to abandon our mech for a time. The hammocks would take almost negligible space when rolled up, so we can just leave them in the storage area until needed.
>>2133340>I was thinking of writing this, but I didn't want Alex to come off as a creep
>>2133342You have bested me with superior logic my support....goes to you
sleep for me, but tomorrow we'll have the next installment.
>>2133339Only get one>The luxury king-size. you can probably fit 2 of these. but they waste space and are kinda heavy
>>2133480why bother dong this now when the chances of lewd is next to zero.Only getting 1 would just fuck us over in the futurehammocks are needed
>>2133498Becouse we are kings with the high elfsAnd i like nice things
>>2133596who doesn't like nice things, im just saying that we know very little about this world and going for luxuries immediately when we get them seems a little unwise.we may have a giant robot on our side,but who knows how powerful the other "knights" could be
>>2133606we need the best night sleeps to fight at the best
>>2133596These are people with their own livelihoods to consider. Regardless of how much they want what we have, it would be irresponsible for us to cause excessive economic instability in their town simply because we want fancier stuff. True, the bed is only one thing, but if we're willing to bend on something so frivolous, I can't see us faring any better with other purchases.Besides, we're not even sure if the luxury bed will offer us any practical benefit, but we know for a fact it's got downsides in lugging it around.And I'm personally not keen on roleplaying a sociopath who will readily take random shit from people just because he can, like some video game protagonist who just marches into people's houses and steals everything he can - though I acknowledge this part is a more subjective matter.
>>2133636we are giving them the best what money cant buyits not like we are making shit trades at all
>>2133648It would be like Jesus charging for miracles, except worse. They're technically priceless, but it's still irresponsible - and in our case Acarit's weed doesn't actually improve their livelihoods; it just gets them high.Besides, if we took Acarit's words to heart, we really ought to be sharing it for free.
>>2133656which is y we are having a big as party and givng it to thembut that said they keep offering thingsand im not talking about always useing itto buy things but we need things right nownext time itl be free
>>2133677We do need things right now, but I'm not sure how that translates to getting more than we need and buying a luxury bed over a more practical one.
>>2133688we will naver have to upgrade latter
>>2133342this, bunk beds for us and hilda, then the hammocks we can buy here essentially for free, roll them up and keep them in storage until we find someone to act as a repair crew (likely in a dwarven city doubt we'll find many metallurgy experts in an elven village)
>>2128092Ey yo hold up!Why is one of the Goddesses who was offering us a blessing the same one who presumably wants us dead?
>>2133934Seconding, but stuff all our shit on the bunk we would use, and sleep together on the last tiny bed.
>>2133949tempting us into switching sides
>>2133343Obviously Alex wiggles his eyebrows beneath his helmet for comedic effect.
>>2133949>all gods in the pantheon MUST offer a blessing at their shrine.>Gods with shrines nearby offer blessings to the one you are currently at.If you were to burst into Mera's city and go to her shrine, she is obligated to bless you.of course, she'd also know where you were.Apologies for lateness... my dog passed.
is OP dead? maybe make a new thread for the next update
>>2134104oh shit OP you posted that while i was typing my last post sorry about your dog how long did you own him?
>>2134111I had her for 18 years. She was a very good dog. Sadly this was the last year for her.
>>2134114sorry to hear that OP. sounds like she lived longer than most dogs though, hope she passed peacefully.
>>2134130What this dude said, im sorry for your loss hopefully your dog was a good friend to you in its life.
>>2134130>>2134140She was. thank you for that. I think I ought to make a new thread now.
