Hey guys, let me know when you are around.
>>2240297Well my guess is that the guys are enjoying their vacations and wont show up for a while, if they show at all.I mean, c'mon, this is ... uhmm... the 4th year for the quest thread? Is not like we didnt know this was gonna happen around these dates,
>>2240314This is when I’m at work, so sometimes I can’t respond for a while.
"Hmm..." x2Asmund and Okaba are standing quietly as they study the formula for Etherium, alternatively gazing at the etherium spoon we got them as a sample."Hmm..." x2, again."Armor is out, as are weapons." - comments Asmund - "I don't subscribe to that finite mana theory, but its still too unstable to take into combat, regardless."Both of our friends sink back into silence as they keep ruminating the formula in their heads."Structural reinforcement... wouldn't work." - contributes Okaba - "Nor would farming tools, in the long run.""What about specialized medical tools?" - we contribute as we take a seat next to our friends."They would need exhaustive care, though I guess that's already true for medical tools." - agrees Asmund"Maybe craftsmen tools as well. A tailor would consider such a needle as a prize, a sculptor would favor a chisel of this stuff, and a clockmaker would enjoy choice tools, but... crafting, storing and transporting them to their new owners would be an exhausting chore by itself."Indeed, even a bunch of needdles need layers of other materials between them, as would any items made with it. Transport and storage would be a chore unless slaves' [Item Box] was set aside for just such a purpose.None of the young lords present around the table looked on such a thing with favourable eyes."Drill tips?" - we suggest"Sounds good. They're big and heavy enough to begin with that storing them indicidually wouldnt be too much of a change.""Maybe the spine of a rockitship? It seems the only use reasonable for the stuff is with large enough things that they can be considered cost effective when transport and storage costs are considered.">Agree, from now on, we'll use it with single, massive objects>Favor tiny, expensive tools, where careful and expensive handling fees wont make much different>Other
>>2240422>Agree, from now on, we'll use it with single, massive objects>Other: suggest an armored shell for our dimensional probesBasically a jar with holes on the side for wings.
>>2240426>>Other: suggest an armored shell for our dimensional probesWouldnt be a full shell. At best, it would be two halves separated by rubber or something else to prevent them from touching each other.
>>2240455I was thinking it would be like a bottle; one piece with an open end that the probe would enter through and from which it would extend sensors.
>>2240422>Other: suggest an armored shell for our dimensional probes
>>2240474uhmm...uhmmm....I guess that would work but would require a redesign. I guess it would work if we delay things for a couple of weeks.So, large important parts and probe shielding?
>>2240481Yes. Our current dimensional probes get eaten after a couple minutes anyway, and need a week or two to build. Might as well take a few weeks to make a probe that should be able to last significantly longer.
>>2240481>large important parts and probe shielding Yes
"Alright. This material is useless for armor once others get even a shard of it to throw at you, and the same applies to weapons, so the only use we can give it is as highly specialized construction materials and precision tools." - says Asmund - "Getting the formula out there will pretty much ensure that, though Im sure more than a few idiots will try it anyway.""...This should last about 3-4 months." - Okaba says after thinking about it for a while - "After that, even the dumbest musclehead will realize that having your sword dissapear just because it clashed against another makes it useless."With that, the discussion steered towards anchoring other materials to the support beam, but eventually made its way back to current projects.For now, we go back to the lightning guns. or rather, the staff-like versions that Asmund came up with, thanks to a suggestion from us.Adding a conuctive material (such as copper) to the end of the staff can help focus the discharge and reduce its area of effect, thus allowing troops to wield the shockstaves somewhat safely, though the simply contact between a weapon's head and an ally is enough to cause a burn.Thankfully, the weapon can be turned "off", greatly reducing this danger."The problem is that copper is a very soft material. Maybe a harder material with a conductive edge?" After a while, they want to either add a trigger mechanism to the head, or the handle.>Adding it to the handle means the warrior needs to be aware of wielding the weapon and triggering at the right moment, adding distractions to combat. Lets add a pressure or closed circuit system to the head instead.>Safety first. Adding it to the handle means it cant go off by accident.>Other
>>2240548>Adding it to the handle means the warrior needs to be aware of wielding the weapon and triggering at the right moment, adding distractions to combat. Lets add a pressure or closed circuit system to the head instead.Just make it that it wont turn on till it hits something hard enguh so a light tap wont do shit but a fighting hut would turn it on

>>2242477this >>2242491sounds good
>>2242569>>2242491>Miel II, Tanis, Sykia, Fleur, TielHmm... alright, there's still some time before we have to pick up Lyann at the university, so let's earn some pocket money.I have a feeling that if I tell her I spent it all, she'll cut how much she gives me from now on.Ah, but isn't it my money? How mysterious, even though she is my (self declared) slave, isn't she controlling her master quite a bit? Hn. But it's alright, because in truth, she's my beloved (wife) childhood friend.No, wait, that still seems kind of wrong somehow... Alright, let's try and convince her to raise our monthly stipend as often as we need to until she's convinced.*nod*Ah, we went off topic. Let's see... Tanis, Sykia, Miel II (I feel like I should give her a pet name to avoid confusion, maybe just Honey? Miel means honey in spanish after all), Tiel, and Fleur...Fleur ... should be classified as a summoner, I think. Rather than fighting herself, she calls forth maneating plants to do the fighting for her. In a sense, she's a bit of a cheat character, as she can vastly increase a party's numbers without reducing anyone's exp share.I guess she would be a prestige character type. Anyway, I think its fine to think of her as a summoner, and give her a position at the rear of the party. Or rather, near the middle, since realistically speaking, we -can- get attacked from the rear in this world.As a one-girl army, we could just send her down to clean (eat) a whole dungeon and be confident in her safety, but the problem is that she would eat any drops along with anything that isn't nailed and in flames...I really need her to increase her intelligence as soon as possible.Anyway, Fleur, summoner, needs protection so lets assign her near the middle of the party.Tien and Tanis are both bruiser types, so we can assign both of them to the front lines.Sykia... needs me to cover for her still. As does Miel.Tanis // Tien // MyselfFleur SykiaMiel IIThat seems like a reasonable lineup...>Other>That seems fine
>>2242674>That seems fine
>>2242674>>That seems fine
>>2242744>>2242697>>That seems fineAlright, let's take advantage of the larger, older foodgeons in the capital, and run the monsters down while picking up the loot.To be honest, I think we need to hurry forth so that Fleur wont eat the loot (by proxy, through her plants), so we'll just mow down the mobs in easy floors and dedicate our party to pick up the loot after her.The exp will be negligible for most of us, but Sykia will benefit from it, plus, I want the girls to have more social experiences, rathet than just worry about combat exp, so a fun and relaxed group stroll should be perfect.Of course, we're still going in formation in case anything makes it through Fleur's vacuum clea- I mean, plants.And so, I summon them all out outside the Adventurer's Guild."Oh, this city has a rather nice mood to it." - comments Sykia - "Is nice and fresh, the streets look clean, and the buildings have a nice classical fantasy town look to them. Or rather, a european town feel.""Is that so? I haven't really seen much of Euripe other than during business trips, and then it would just be the larger cities... ah hold on, you!"We catch Fleur by the braid at the back of her head when she starts walking off towards a nearby food stand."Gya!?" - she stops cold and turns her head around to look at us with a miserable 'hungry puppy' look in her eyes."You... if i remember right, all your needs are taken care off while in the [Menagerie], aren't they? So you cannot possibly be hungry, not really...""Uuuuh...." - look of 'im soooo hungry' + puppy eyesAlright, let's buy a snack for everyone... one, two, three, four... a full party is six people so why am I counting 9,,,?Sykia, Fleur, Tanis, Fleur, Miel II, Fleur, Tien, Fleur, and ourselves,S-should I be impressed about her growing decoys at the tip of her hair vines, or should I admonish her for trying to deceive us?I mean, it is fairly impressive. The copies look just like the real thing. I'm not sure if it even counts as a cloning technique or a mirror image skill/spell or what, since they're still linked to her through the vines...Aahh... I want to praise her for getting a new skill, but I am less than happy with her use for it.>Reward her with the extra food. Its a show of intelligence and we want her to be smart>Karate chop the copies to show that she's not fooling us, then give her an extra serving anyway>Other
This quest is like an old school zombie, it moves incredibly slowly and it won't die even though it's been dead for years. Shit goes live and there are 3-5 small updates before it goes dead, all of which take an incredible length of time to happen. Few anons participate anymore, looking through the archives indicates that this was not always the case.
>>2242789>Reward her with the extra food. Its a show of intelligence and we want her to be smart
>>2242795To be honest. I think its a comfortably sloow quest. Also, IIRC, many players commented in a form or another, eventually "I liked the thread and am going to start my own using it as a reference." A few asked for the system pdf so they could use it as a baseBut yeah, its pretty slow. I dont think its a bad thing, per se, though
>>2242789>>Reward her with the extra food. Its a show of intelligence and we want her to be smart
>>2242832When I disparage quests like this I mainly do it to see how the QM reacts to criticism. So good on you, you passed the test. I do think the people who are only lurking should participate moar, though. I know they're out there. Being lazy fucks.
aww i accidentally lost what I had typed, hold on typing again.
And so, we're following behind a tiptoeing Fleur as she follows a wall of plant hydra-like monsters that are walking (wading?) sho9ulder-to-shoulder down the hallway.She's a level 320 Thorny Demoness Queen. and her minions are level 80 Ancient Shambling Hydras. Each of them has a solid body made by coiled trunks and vines, covered in finger-long thorns, with 'necks' that are long, sinuous and thick vines with large man-eating jaws at the end of each.Each hydra has 9 heads, so with 8 of them, the sight that greets any monster unfortunate enough to pop in their path is a wall of 72 giant green, puple and neon pink maws coming for them.Yeah, pink. They're still rather pretty and colorful, you know?The level 80 hydras simply pick up the level 40~ dungeon monsters into their jaws and begin eating them alive. I can tell that Fleur is 'eating by proxy' somehow just based on how her eyes are all glassy and foggy right now. She's basically exstatic right now.Anyway, we're busily picking up the loot that the monsters drop once they 'poof' in her vines' clutches....yeah, I noticed. There's never any edible loot left. She's quietly keeping those for herself and eating them right away.>Well, we only wanted money so lets think of it as her share>We are training her to leave us the loot, so we should (gently) punish her anyway.

This Quest is still going on? How? Like 2 years ago we basically had control of the entire planet
>>2243464 I am pleasantly surprised that your eyes still have function. what I have read of your quest is quality stuff. you deserve far better than the hand you were dealt
>>2248034Well, my right eye already kicked the bucket, and right now I see as if through a thin layer of milk, but thanfully I can still read on 4chan thanks to the 'Tomorrow' style.Can't read normal paper or the typical white screen w/ blact text, though, so I installed a google add on to reverse colors in other sites. I'd like to use fireforx instead but the plug in for firefox is terrible, utter garbage that asks me to manually click in each thing I want to change the colors of, and then select the new color, which as you could imagine is a retarded pain in the ass.As for the quest, its not so much about controlling the world as about stopping a extradimensional invasion.****sigh* This gluttonous plant."Fleur." - we call over to her"...?" - she turns around towards us with a smileI can't get mad at her when she's all cute like this, but I can't be lax on her training either."You are getting more than enough to eat, don't eat the drops, alright?" - we let out a deep sigh"...?" - she leans her head to the side while looking at usI guess that's too complicated right now. How do I get the message across?>Walk forth with her and be on the lookout.

>>2248520>>2248426>>Walk forth with her and be on the lookout. When a monster 'pops' and leaves some food drops in the plant maw, reach in and grab it"Ahj!" - she exclaims surprised as we shove our hand into an hydra's mouth.We reach in for the foodstuff drop, and Fleur quickly freezes the hydras in the spot so we can pull our hand out, looking almost adorably worried.Well, it was just some [Good][Bacon] after a elite orc died, but its not about its quality or value, its about teaching her."You can't eat the loot." - we say as we show her the bacon and rub her head with out other hand - "Understand?""Hhh..." - she pouts and tries to reach for itWe lift it, and she walks over and tries standing on her toes to reach for it while complaining softly."No, Fleur, yhou're already eating the bodies, aren't you? You have to give me the drops.""..." - she inflates her cute cheeks as she looks at us"No." - we very gently flick her forehead and then rub rub her headShe leans her head down slightly and looks up at us..."That's a good girl. Don't eat the drops, alright?""Ah..." - she gives it a last try, reaching up all of a sudden as she stands on the tips of her toes, even lifting a foot off the ground as she tries to reach up, but our height difference is too much for her."I'll let you eat something tasty later.""Oh-khay." - she says softlyAh, this is the first time she's tries to properly speak. Her voice is... uhmm... I guess I should call it soft? Its somewhat as if you blew through a nicely tuned wooden instrument"Alright. Don't eat the drops, okay?""Oh-khay...""Good girl"She smiles and closes her eyes as we pet pet her head.And thus, we restart our march forward.>It looks about enough, let's go back now>Lets continue for a bit just to make sure she remembers/learns to leave us all the drops>Other
>>2248554>>Lets continue for a bit just to make sure she remembers/learns to leave us all the drops
>>2248627>>2248587>>>Lets continue for a bit just to make sure she remembers/learns to leave us all the dropsWell, our group continues its pleasurable stro- I mean, farming work in the low levels of the dungeons, though you may as well call it bullying, I guess.Well, everything is relative. After all, the drops are not that valuable and the exp isnt much when you consider our levels, but since we're the only ones getting it (the pets calculate their own exp separately and don't substract from the party exp, which means we're basically getting all of it), it still stacks rather quickly.Uhm.. I wonder if it would be better to quickly get the exp from trash mobs or if it is better to get more tasty exp and drops at a lower pace...Well, I suposse the only real diference from a practical point of view is the loot quality. From the point of view of whats more interesting... most people hate grinding, though.Fortunately, this world's [System] does not seem to reduce drops based on your level, so farming is indeed possible. Well, if it did, only low level people would ever be able to get [Fresh Egg] from the typical foodgeon first floor chickens, after all.Anyway, the end result of this dungeon run was only 75 gold pieces, but selling all the loot would give up easily twice as much.In a sense, I think that the most important part was Fñeur's growth as well as Sykia's levels going up, though.Alright, now let's go back and pick up Lyann, though we'll be cutting it rather short so we may not have enough time to dine with everyone at home before we go.***And so, it came out to the current situation, where Zpe is pouting as we smooch her forehead before leaving.Dad on the other side ruffled our hair, and both our mothers gave us care packages to deliver to both Stella and Alard.Well, we stored them in Lyann's [Item Box] without checking the contents, anyway."Take care of everyone, okay?" - we tell Zoe after we smooch her forehead"Uuuh... why wasn't I invited... I'd like to see sis too..."Hm.. certainly, in a sense, they were 'born together' since they've been together for as long as Zoe remembers, right? Zoe is the responsible and cool-headed little sister type, but I guess it would be normal for her to want to see her big sister, after all.>Ah, once we anchor the ship to spend the night, we can [Treestride] home and pick her up.>No, no, we already have her helping us in the lab, and we heard that she was chosen as class representative for her year, so she's full of work right now.>Other

>>2249405>>2249319>>2249317>>Ah, once we anchor the ship to spend the night, we can [Treestride] home and pick her up.Well, its not as if we were planning on flying non stop. We'll properly stop at night, though we can't leave the ship alone in the middle of nowhere all night, so we can't come back to sleep at home, but making short trips through [Treestride] should be alright."Hm. Let's see... I can just come pick you up when we are arriving, though?""Eeeh~ but, it sounds like I could sleep with big brother and big sister on the ship. It sounds really fun~.""Is that so? The cabin isn't very big at all, though?""It sounds fun..." - she is holding her shamm hands as fists in front of herself as she shakes them softly for emphasis"Alright, but ..." - we look at our moms for help"As long as you bring her back for school in the morning, I think its fine? You haven't been sleeping at home so she's been feeling lonely." - momI guess we're doing this, then."Alright, but you need to bring your pajama and your uniform so we can [Treestride] you straight to school afterwards.""Yes! Big brother, I love- ah, I'm so happy." - she says with a slightly blushed face.Picking up Grumnir and Miiyau, we head over to the city's rockitship docks and board our personal ship, then start heading north east in a straight line,"It really is quite nyace." - says Miiyau with her eyes almost closed as she enjoys the breeze on her face"Is it? It feels quite solid, but aren't we floating in mid air!?" - Grumnir is grabbing the ship's rails so hard that he's likely to imprint his fingerprints into the wood."It is quite safe. It was a countryman of you that came up with it in the first place." - we comment"Oh, so its a dwarven tool? That is quite reassuring." - he releases his grip a little and seems more comfortable nowWell, since we at least have two small cabins (the ship is meant as a personal one after all, so one was originally meant as a cargo hold), we can spend the night onboard, though we'll need to take turns on the bathroom.We'll be taking our meals on the deck, by the way. Also, we're taking turns cooking for everyone."Anyway, we'll take turns steering, so boss, lets go to the cockpit so you can learn to do so." - we suggest to Grumnir and we make our way together so Lyann can teach him how to steer the ship first"I'm going to unpack our stuff, nya~" - Miiyau heads to their cabin with their bags and suitcasesUhm, is it so much stuff that they couldn't carry it all in their [Item Box]? I guess they're packing quite a bit.Well, there's quite a bit of sound insolation in our cabin, so there wouldnt be any noise leaking at night, and while I think it would have been kind of fun doing lewd things with our lovely redhead in a tight space, we're having Zoe join us tonight, so lets drop those plans.1/?
>>2249597Ah, as the older brother, I guess I should give the bed to the girls, so let's prepare a few towels and blankets on the floor to make ourselves a bed.Eh, it sort of looks like bunk beds. That is somewhat fun already.Alright, let's go see how they're doing in the cabin.***It sure is lonely out here on the deck.Why am I sitting outside while drawing circles on the wooden rail? Because the cockpit is too small for four people, and Miiyau beat us there. Is not like we're lonely or anything!>Ah, let's secure a spot for our plant and go pick up Zoe already. W-we're not lonely, though!>Let's summon one of our pets. (whom?)>Other
>>2249617>Let's summon one of our pets. (whom?)Tanis, Miel II, and Tien.We can talk with Miel II about what name we should give her, and we can talk with Tanis about how flying not using her own wings must feel new.
cant post, testing...
Alright apparently cant link to other posts, nor can I post images, so let's go slowly.Our cute pets are out of their armored harnesses, and happily wearing their recreation/rest d clothes, which at the moment means a small dress of soft wool with a turtle neck that leaves their backs open so that their wings and tails (the ones that have one, that is) can poke through with zero trouble.(1) Tien is leaning over the rail surrounding the deck, looking down at the far away ground in a good mood, enjoying the feeling of the wind on her hair.Well, she's leaning out so far that she's on the tip of her toes, but even if she DID fall, she would doubtlessly be alright since... wings.Tanis on the other side, is sitting across from us, her arms spread apart and resting on the smooth wooden rails, a leg crossed over the other as she looks to the side and to ground over her shoulders with a relaxed expression."This is quite a nice way to travel, Master. Will we use it much from now on?" - she asks"Ideally, no, but we don't have any [Treestride] destination where we are going, so we're going to create one with the little sapling in the cockpit.""I see... such a pity.""Ah... I-i don't really mind, not at all!" - says Miel II as she looks down at our shirt while cuddling into our arms and sitting on our lap.Right, honey faeries don't really like high spots, as they dont normally fly higher than a few meters over the flowers they love so much.Well, its fine. She's super cute as she clings to us as firmly as she can, sinking her pretty head against us while the breeze plays with her honey-colored hair."Pet... pet." - we call her gently"Uhhh~""It's alright, it's quite safe.""Uuuh~"Come think about it, calling her Miel is somewhat inconvenient when her mother is around, and still somewhat awkward if we call her Miel II all the time. Perhaps we should give her a new name?>Let's give her one. It will make things simpler, and more clearly 'brand' her as our pet.>Let's ask her for suggestions. Well, people don't normally name themselves but an exception may be alright?>Other1 - I had a really good pic but 4chan can't handle pictures right now, it seems.

A name? B-but mother already gave me a name..." - she exclaims, somewhat confused"Well, isn't it a bit awkward when we are all together?""I don't really mind...

>>2257086We-re creating a new one tomorrow, I think.Got derailed because of the 4chan errors, plus I usually do stuff on wednesdays.***"In that case, I'm going to call you Mei Mei in bed. Like this." - we kiss her softly - "Mei mei." - we give her another kiss"Uh... t-that's somewhat embarrasing.." - she complains while blushing"That's alright, because you look so pretty when you blush, Mei Mei." - we reply and give her another kiss."Eh? That looks pretty nice. So, what are you calling me?" - asks Tanis from her seat"My slutty dragon."Ah, we got hit with a pillow seat***i think its fine to end here for today?
>>2257177Today is Thursday. So a new thread tomorrow?
>>2257192Oh shit it is! I was taking it easy and went out to eat and even took a nap, so sorry.Alright then, let's see...>Play with our cute pets (gently, since we're not alone on the ship)>Random encounter of the dragon kind>Park the ship somewhere>Go get Zoe>Zoe encounter of the cute kind>Following dayAnything else you wanna add?
>>2257292Non-lewd time with our Pets feeding them different and exotic foods.
"Alright now. Aaahn" - we say as we hold our cute faery on our lap and gently rub her lower back"A-aaahnn.." - she replies softlyWe feed her one of Zoe and Athena's home-made cookies. It was made with high class ingredients, you know? It is crunchy and delicious."Hnnmm..." - ah, she's chocking a little bit. Well, it is very delicious, but on the dry side of things, after allLet's have her drink a bit of milk. Mouth to mouth, of course "Hn!?" - she blushes brightly, but relazed into the kissThat's a good, cute pet."Eh... Master, Tien wants cookies, too!" - the blue haired dragon pulls up against our sideMaster is a little sad about you asking for cookies instead of kisses, you know? Well, I guess she's still young enough to prioritize treats, but still... its a little lonely"Yes, yes. Aaahn""Aaaah...!" - she happily chomps on the cookie with her pearly white teethAh, that was slightly dangerous. I get the feeling we could have lost a finger, somehow.>Lets teach her to be gentler by having Miel give her the cookie mouth to mouth>Lets give her the other 1/2 of the cookie mouth to mouth>Other

I wonder if she was playing when she chomped the cookie off our fingers."Master, Tien wants a happy name, too!""Happy name?""Yes, a name for playing with Master!"Ah, is that how she feels about sex? Well... she's not wrong, but it makes me feel a little guilty.Uhmm...>You don't need one. Tien is plenty cute. (and we dont want all the pets asking for one)>Alright (suggestions)>Other
>>2257569>You don't need one. Tien is plenty cute. (and we dont want all the pets asking for one)Give her head rubs and kisses to distract her.
>>2257569>>You don't need one. Tien is plenty cute. (and we dont want all the pets asking for one)See, this is why I never wanted to sex the pets, not counting Lyann.
I wouldn’t mind giving some of the Pets pet names, but I imagine it would just make things harder for King, which is why I voted against it.
>>2257587>See, this is why I never wanted to sex the pets, not counting Lyann.I wanted to make Lyann into a pet/summon but didnt got anough votes.>>2257587>>2257583>>You don't need one. Tien is plenty cute. (and we dont want all the pets asking for one)"Uuuh..." - she pouts a little, but cheers up when we play with her.After a while, Lyann comes out, having left Grumnir at the helm."Eldric, do you want to eat yet?" - she asks as she grabs Tien and replaces her on our lap."Eh... not fair." - Tien"There, there." - Lyann rubs Tien's head until she cheers up"Is a bit early. Don't you want to eat with Zoe?""Well, I-"Before she can finish her phrase, though, a large shadow passes over us. Looking up, a massive blue and yellow dragon is beginning to turn and head towards us.[Ancient Dragon][lvl 540]Oh, its a [Field Boss]. As far as dragons go, this one is pretty much the highest level we've seen outside a dungeon (where we've seen dragons of up to level 550).Well, even if its level is not the highest we've seen, these are less than ideal conditions to fight it, as we're in a small boat high in the sky, allowing it to attack us from any angle at will."Eh... how daring, to dare and attack our master's ship." - says Tanis as she looks at it.Uhmm... Tanis is 575, and Tien is 325 now.>Send them to intercept it and restrict its movement>Other

Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2257849bah i didnt roll, though maybe i should keep it as a male so we don't add it to our [Menagerie]? We do have plenty of pets already.Ah, maybe give it to Athena?
>>2259156toooOOOO LATE, good gods man. What even is happening right now.I don't mind giving her to Athena anyway.
>>2259156Looks like we’re getting an Ancient Dragon Pet. But if you really want to give it away, our wives also need to pad out their Menageries as well. And Athena already has a Minotaur so one of our younger siblings might need a strong starter Pet.
>>2259349>>2259308Uhmm... our wives dont really have menageries as far as i remember.I guess we're getting it for Athena, then?
We send Tanis and Tien out against the [Ancient Dragon], and call out for the others but...Well, they were already coming this way.>Send Lyann back inside. We need her to steer the ship while we ride on Radiant to go fight>Ask Grumnir and Miiyau to care for the ship while we grab Lyann and head out to fight>Other
>>2259435They don’t have Menageries because they never put effort into getting Pets. That’s why this would be an opportunity to start getting Pets. >Ask Grumnir and Miiyau to care for the ship while we grab Lyann and head out to fight

>>2259589>>2259542>>Ask Grumnir and Miiyau to care for the ship while we grab Lyann and head out to fight"Boss, take care of the ship!" - we cry as we grab Lyann by the wrist and jump overboardOur friends rush to the wooden rail to see us fly off on top of Radiant."Those kids. It sure is nice to be young, eh?""Nya! We have our job too, you nyaw? We can't let that thing hit us.""Hmph, I don't even like this boat that much.""Then, I'm drivine, nya!"I wonder why is it that I can easily imagine Miiyau going 'Nyyyaaaaaahahahaha!' as I see the ship starting to make sharp turns in every direction.I can also imagine Grumnir throwing out all sort of amazing dwarven cuss words, by the way."What are we doing with it? Aren't we just shooing it away?" - Asks Lyann as she immediately sends her light dress into her [Item Box] and starts struggling to equip her battle dress while making her best effort not to fall off the saddle.Its convenient that we can send things into the [Item Box] at anytime, but its a bit of an issue that we can't have them equip themselves just as fast.As for us, well, I'm fairly confidant that our stats have passed right over our gear's long ago. Well, maybe if we were wearing the family's full armor set, but as it stands, it doesn't really makes much difference.Come think of it...>Don't worry about putting your armor on. You're fine as is!

>>2259602>Don't worry about putting your armor on. You're fine as is! (she's a dancer anyway)
>>2259602Oh, and tell Lyan we’re going to capture it. Dragons are sapient without needing Rank-Up’s, and if this one is old enough, it might have knowledge that it would take us months to find in the Lightbringer Archives.

She's a dancer anyway.As Radiant flies over the ancient dragon, we wait for Tanis and Tien to tackle it for a moment so it stays in place.Tien bomb dives it, but the dragon easily spins in place, and smacks her with its tail, further sending her off with a shower of its breath weapon, a green flame that seems to stick unto Tien's body."I can't devide if I should thank you for showing her not to dive against another dragon, or make you eat your tail for that." - says Tanis as she transforms back into her dragon form and rams into the green/yellow dragon from the sideThey roar as they claw, slam and bite at each other, their breath weapons leaving trails of red gold and green fire as they go.>Just jump>Call for Tien to transform and help her mom, then jump>Other

>>2260648>>2260700uhmmk***...should we call it cute and colorful? Its definitively unique. Tien's coloration, that is. I am unsure on wether to call it black on yellow or viceversa, but it somehow fits her pretty well, giving off a fun and youthful look.Anyway, she jumps on top of Tanis and the wild dragon, and helps grapple with it... though she's not really hurting it.She's just trying to grab it.Well, she's basically a baby, so you can't expect her to know how to fight (as a dragon)."Don't bite mother!" - ah, she got angry and bit at the green/yellow dragon, nevermindThe problem is, they're spinning and wrestling in mid air, so its hard to find the chance to jump in and help.Then they separate at the same time, and that's it.We jump down and sink our sword in the dragon's back (but not the spine), causing it to cry out in pain as we use the sword as a spike to hold on to its body.The dragon starts spinning in mid air, but we manage to hold on until...***Roll 1d100.

(Should I just roll on my side to make combat faster? Do you prefer it when its just narrative instead?)
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>2261876I like a bit of randomness, and rolling for things.

Instead, she 'only' took a blow equal to 80% of her maximum hp...She's not even casting, dancing or using skills, she's just jumping ahead and punching each time her 'turn comes up.'>Call out to her to let her know we're okay.>Sit up and watch>Go help>Other

>>2262959>Go help>Other: Make sure she doesn't kill the Ancient Dragon.ah, so she really did only level up in the dungeons to be able to protect Eldric.
I wonder if we should give Miel her Throneship as soon as it’s commissioned, or should we wait until the full Hive Fleet is completed?And we should have Sykia doing more work, especially combining mana turbine engines and propulsion systems with rock-it ships. Maybe she can even make a mana jet engine design.
>>2265618>>2263936>>2263002>>Go help>>Other: Make sure she doesn't kill the Ancient Dragon.Through our slave/master link (courtesy of her collar), we can tell her hp is going down rather quickly.Even if she out-levels the dragon by about 50 levels, she's unarmored, specced as a caster/buffer, and fighting a [Boss] by herself (which would already by a very tough fight for a full party of 6).It doesn't looks like she cares, though, since she keeps just running up and hitting the dragon each chance she gets. At least she's using her spear now."Lyann, step bacl!" - we cry as we run in and try to get in front of herThe dragon lifts its head and takes a deep breath, clearly about to use its [Eldritch Breath] against us!>Raise a defensive barrier>Use a skill/spell for a exchange>Other

I'm not really sure I get it, but I support momma!" Ah, Tien is a good girl. I wonder where did she got that from, considering Tanis is just a slutty dragon... nevermind, it must be inheritance from Mei Mei, right? I mean, Miel IIAnyway, Lyann looks pretty tired, though her [Regeneration] buff will have her back to 100% in a minute or so (since each round lasts aproximately 6 seconds and the spell heals 10% max hp per round). Anyway, lets pick her up and kiss her."Eldric, what are you doing?!" - she complains softly as we bite her lips non-too-gentky"You scared me, you idiot. Idiot Lyann." - we say as we bite at her neck and shoulders, leaving bite marks all over her gorgeous, glowing-like skin"Hey! That hurts!? S-stop it!""Nope. Don't do it again." - we reply as we bite her right breast, firmly enough to leave a visible bite mark on her"Uuuuh... I won't do it again, so don't bite me...!"We kiss her, and gently hug her against us for a bit.***Let's end here. I'll see you guys on thursday, God willing
