Current Status:Elisa D'arciaLevel ???Skills: ???Stats: ???------"His majesty strongly suggests that you reconsider his proposal." The leader of a group of Royal Soldiers stood before you with a sack of gold in his hand. For what appeared to be an attempt to persuade you to return to the fold of the Royal Palace, these men didn't seem intent on taking "no" for an answer. They numbered four in total, and the three standing a few feet behind their leader all had hands gripped on their swords. This bunch was definitely more forceful than the last.After you and your companions, summoned to this world by force, had slain the Demon King, you were hailed in the court of the King of Avalis as a Hero. You did not feel the part. Only you had survived the brutal final battle against the Demon Lord, and being surrounded by the corpses of your three friends had struck something in you. Why did you all agree to fight for a world not your own? Was it a sense of childlike naivety and belief that you would all receive a happy ending? Leana had boasted about the need to help others, regardless of world, but that conviction did not hold up in the end as she was torn asunder by the Demon Lords minions. Yukimura only desired to get home, but when you found out after the battle that returning home was impossible, you felt he had been cheated. In the end he fought for nothing but a lie. Then finally, Marcus had wanted fame and glory. The opportunity to be hailed as a hero was his greatest desire. Albeit Prideful and a bit unbearable at times with his boasting, he never let you down when it mattered. It should of been him basking in this post-battle world, not you. As for you, Elisa D'arcia, you were the stoic beauty. A woman of few words, you had a fan following of your own. Not as big as the hero worshippers of the others, but a few nonetheless. That time felt so far away now.There were more immediate problems however. The King wanted you to return to the Royal Court and once more become his 'Hero'. The word left a distaste in your mouth. Your companions might of been Hero's, but you were always unsure as to what you were. Along for the ride maybe? It didn't matter now. The King had taken the deaths of your friends lightly, and admitted to lying to you all in order to have you slay the Demon King. With the 'thorn' that was the Demon King out of the way, the Nobles and Human nations that had united against a common threat went back to squabbling, and the King used you as a diplomatic weapon to guarantee the superiority of the Kingdom of Avalis. You were disgusted that 'this' was what your friends had sacrificed themselves for. You had left without word one night, taking your Sacred Blade with you.For now, the soldiers looked at you expectantly as silence befell you all.>Accept the Kings invitation>Decline the Kings Invitation>Intimidate the soldiers>Attack the Soldiers>Walk away>Other/Write-in

>>2988692>>2988703>>2988707"I must decline His Majesty's invitation. I have retired from the life of a Hero." You tell them as you turn to continue your travels. You still wander the land, doing good deeds for those in desperate need, but you've been keeping a low profile nowadays. The men however, don't seem to like your answer."Then you'll have to let me reword, His Majesty demands your presence. You'll be coming with us one way or another." The leader says. The men in the back draw their swords. They must assume with the loss in usability of your left eye and arm in the final battle, that you're nowhere near as powerful as you were. Luckily you've found something to supplement your bodily decline.>Magic. You've picked up some new tricks in the year following the final battle.>One handed Blade Mastery.

>>2988849>>2988841>>2988828You weren't some pushover. You were still a 'Hero' in terms of skill. You wouldn't be bullied by some footmen who thought that your state gave them some semblance of superiority over you. Over the last year, you'd practiced day and night until the wielding of your Sacred Blade with your remaining arm had come natural to you.(Ability gained - One Handed Blade Mastery: Wielding a Sword with one hand does not impose disadvantages to you in combat.)"If you continue on this path, it will not end the way you think. Leave, before my patience runs thin." You tell them. They seem taken aback for a moment, not sure what to do now that you're still intent on declining. Perhaps they were all bark and no bite? "I reckon you ain't got too much fight in ya. Reports tell us you ain't a magic user, and ya got one good arm. We could just arrest ya here without much trouble. Keep the gold for ourselves." One of the soldiers says. The leader turns his head around, furious that his man had spoken out of line. You speak before he does."My my, you certainly are a tough lot, intimidating a lone, crippled woman. Pathetic." You say. >Roll 1d100.Will take the highest of the 3 rolls. 90-100 is a crit. 1-10 is a crit fail. Crits override crit fails.

Makes sense that we'd have trouble giving off a threatening aura. We're probably not too keen on killing people after the stuff we've been through. They're annoying, and we'd rather fight than be a pawn, but ultimately it's hard to really despise them when they're just soldiers doing their jobs, not some band of murder happy bandits or whatever.
>>2988949The man who had spoken out of line appears rather insulted at the insinuation against his honor. He charges at you with his sword and you sigh. THIS was the reward you got for saving the Kingdoms from the Demon Lord. It was...disappointing. The blood, sweat, and tears that were shed back then had already been forgotten, and now your fellow humans turned against you when you were no longer required. You recall the final battle, the words of the Demon Lord ringing in your mind."Even should I lose, your usefulness will be expended." He had told you. It was true. With the end of the war, your were relegated to mere monster extermination tasks alone. You butchered nests alone, traveled alone, and camped alone. The loss of your companions coming as a shock every time you awoke. It was a hard couple months following the battle.Now, your targets have switched from monsters to humans. You'd never killed a human before. If you did...what kind of hero would you be? Would Leana be disappointed in you? These were the humans of a world that had deceived you. That had you fight THEIR battles for THEM. Would Leana still feel the same way? Would Yukimura?You had already gauged the strength of your opponents, as the entire group joined their companion and descended on you.Royal Soldier: Titles: Peacekeepers of AvalisLVL - 5Stats:Strength - 19Defense - 17Magic - 0>Summon your Sacred Blade.

>>2989051Are there no monsters higher than garbage tier in this area or something? We could probably just let them die "naturally" to whatever monster we were currently hunting for a job because they were too dumb to pay attention to why we were here.
The Demon Lord had told you that the evil of Man outweighed that of the monstrous and demi-human races. That their knack for betrayal and violence was unparralled. His war to subjugate humanity was to protect them from themselves. You only recall at the time, the he was quite the monologuer.Something inside of you told you that if you allowed these men to walk away, they would simply send more. You suffered for this world, bled for it, and KILLED for it. If only they could taste a sliver of what you had to. They should have to know what you went through.And they would.The Sacred Blade appeared in your right hand, teleported from your inventory as your bonded weapon. The man went for a downward slash.(Ability re-gained: Bonded Weapon - Having Bonded the Sacred Blade with your soul, it exists as an extension of you.

I already feel like having the protag be super jaded and tired of all the bullshit, enough so that she eventually just snaps and turn evil as all hells.
>>2989158I don't dislike the idea
>>2989158>>2989163I dunno. I mean, maybe? But it's like, she hates the King, but what the King is doing is basically the best justification for doing what she'd go evil for.
>>2989158I'd rather become a hermit and kill anything that disturbs us.
>>2989117The downward strike never comes however. Before anyone had even realized it, the Sacred Blade had passed through the torso of the first Soldier. He spits up blood before his body above his stomach slides off, staining the ground in a puddle of blood. The second man fares no better. He attempts to parry you, but the power behind the blade won't be stopped by feeble arms. You knock the sword from his hand and impale him through the stomach, ripping the blade out through his side. He screams in agony, but you aren't done yet. You place a foot on his throat, seeking to slowly suffocate him as he bleeds out."M-Monster!" One of the soldiers shouts and tries to attack you from behind. You turn and grab his wrist."It seems training standards have been....lacking since the war ended." You mutter and a squeeze from you breaks his wrist. He screams, but you tone it out. You release his wrist, only to grab his throat and you begin to squeeze. Stomping down on the man below you, you finish the job once you feel that he is on the verge of death. Two remained now. The one in your grasp, and the one who was now hesitating. With your free hand, you point your blade at him.(Requirements met. Demon Lords Curse has evolved into Demon Lords Legacy.)That was peculiar. An ailment? Killing the Demon Lord had bestowed something on you it seemed. It would explain your inability to see your skills or stats after the final battle. You would need to investigate when this was dealt with.>"Why did the King send you?">"Hand over the gold.">"Let them know anyone else who follows me will meet the same fate.">"Not going to avenge your friends, are you?">Other/write in

>>2989209>"the folly of men. Proximity to power often delude people into believing they wield it...". Finish them off, but not noo swiftly.
How old are we btw?
"Why did the King send you"? You asked. You had the life of his companion in your hands, and ideally he would answer honestly."I was just paid by the King to get the sword from you! He needs it for something!" He answers quickly and in a panic."When you were unsuspecting we were going to take it from you....oh god...please don't kill me I'm sorry!" He's grovelling at this point. You're not sure how to feel. Satisfied? Guilty? It's strange."Tell your king to get used to disappointment. I'm not his vassal, but nor am I his enemy. Unless he continues on this path." You tell him. He nods furiously."Of course! I'll let him know...I'll uh...go do that now!" He stands up and flees immediately. You sigh and look to the remaining soldier whose neck in your grasp."The folly of men. Proximity to power often delude people into believing they wield it..." The mans eyes slowly begin to shut has you choke the life from his body. You eventually release after ending it with a final snap.>Investigate the corpses.

I wonder if they collected any of our friends' artifacts from their resting places.I'm torn on the money.

On the other, the offer was insincere, so it'd make a fine Stupidity Tax.Screw it>Take the gold that was left behind.
>>2989346+1>>2989354I understand that feeling. I dont have it right now though, since i wanna go evil up this bitch, but I do get the idea
>>2989338Wait, I thought the first post said we have one arm. Do we have two?
>>2989411You still have your arm. It's just not usable for combat. Think of it as having sustained a lot of damage but you can still use it to hold stuff if not too heavy. If you're wielding your sword in that hand, it could easily be knocked aside. Sorry for any confusion.
>>2989338>Depart immediately. No need sticking around.
>>2989428Ohhh. I thought it was gone outright as well. Rather, it's just really crippled.
>>2989373Eh, I don't like to make such decisions right out the gate. On one side, fuck the king. On the other, we're the only remnant of our friends left in this world ... if their trials are to mean anything, we'll be the ones who actualize that.Hard to do so if we just embrace our grudge.
>>2989338>Check Status>Investigate corpses>Depart for the nearest or closest(emotionally) friend's grave to check up on it.>Leave the money. We were fine without it and leaving it behind sends a message.
>>2989460Ah, i see. Yeah i'd like to go more for the "their trial already turned out to be meaningless" kind of nihilistic mindset
>>2989471>Leave the money. We were fine without it and leaving it behind sends a message.I like the idea, but I don't know if banditry and looting boomed after the death of the Demon King, and if it is the case then not taking the money means that someone else will take it and the people after us will assume anyway that we took it.I'm not saying it's dumb mind you, I'm just pointing out a possibility that can happen.
>>2989460Yeah. If our grudge was that bad we'd have already slaughtered the king while we were living around his castle. Going evil right off the bat seems like a complete 180 nor does it match our passive "along for the ride" personality from before. We were going around helping people. We aren't evil... yet? >>2989493I don't know the type of magics they have in the setting but it could also have a tracker on it. Since we can summon the sword we can leave it on the bottom of an ocean until we need it so tracking the sword itself is useless if there's something. The gold on the other hand is an easy trick. They send some lv 5 nooblords up against a hero and expect em to win? I don't think so. If we went along with it they got their wish, if we didn't and robbed em we now have cursed (or trackable) gold. It's a setup. If we don't leave it then we give it all away to some random stranger.I'm probably overthinking but the whole thing smells like a trick.
>>2989515>I'm probably overthinking but the whole thing smells like a trick.Nah man, it's that type of thinking that keeps a lone man alive in a setting like this.>>2989471Supporting
With your assailants dead, you move to retrieve the bag of gold that had been offered to you. For all the trouble they gave you, some monetary compensation was more than welcome. Sparing a glance over to the corpse of the Leader that was making demands of you previously, you rummaged through his pockets to reveal a letter with the Kings seal. It had already been broken, and so you looked it over."The Sacred Blade is to be recovered for the ceremony. Others have failed, do not return without it." Was all the letter read. Peculiar. What Ceremony? This letter left you with more questions than answers.You put the letter into your inventory. At least now you had a destination in mind. However, there was one remaining matter of importance. A small menu appearing in front of you revealed some startling changes.StatusName: Elisa D'arciaLvl: ???Strength: 100Speed: 100Defense: 100Magic: 100Points available for distribution - 400Skills & Magic-[Appraisal - Scan the status of any creature][Demon Lords Legacy - Gifted by the Demon Lord.

So from what I've gathered:1) King summons 4 heroes to kill the Demon Lord.2) Heroes kill demon lord and one (or all) get marked by the demon lord to possibly become the next one. Does death matter here? Would the corpses become the next demon lord?3) King then takes/steals the mystically bonded weapon to summon a new set of heroes to do it all again. Probably doesn't have a good side effect on us.4) ???
>>2989668It's a classic power play maneuver. 'Do something that gets me popular enough in the kingdom so that I have the clout among the public to do the henious shit I want to without getting too much backlash too quickly.' It also has the side effect of getting rid of a problem for him anyway towards his consolidation of power.
>>2989580>>2989588>>2989590>>2989596After allocating your points into the appropriate areas to make up for your inability to utilize your other arm anymore, you were presented with a variety of alerts, indicating abilities had been learned. You looked over the options. What the hell was with these novice tier abilities? Who screwed up your stats? Could abandoning your role as a hero have done this? Did the Demon Lord try to have one last laugh?Choose a skill:>[Fatal Swiftness: Your Sacred Blade attack is guaranteed to bypass all Light & Medium armors.]>[Flash Step: Teleport to the location of the Sacred Blade if it is within one mile.]>[Flight of Foot: Jumping is increased to 30 feet.]And: (Choose 2)>[Healing Hands (Light): Heal minor injuries and non-fatal wounds on others]>[Lifesteal(Dark): Absorb the souls of slain enemies to heal injuries on self]>[Detonation(Fire): Cause a delayed explosion to an injured enemy encompassing a 5 foot radius.]>[Ice Barrier(Water): Summon a wall of ice to block incoming attacks]
>>2989704>>[Fatal Swiftness: Your Sacred Blade attack is guaranteed to bypass all Light & Medium armors.]>[Detonation(Fire): Cause a delayed explosion to an injured enemy encompassing a 5 foot radius.]I'd pick lifesteal, but I'm not keen on jumping straight into the deep end of that sort of thing.

>>2989704>Fatal Swiftness>Detonation>Healing hands
>>2989704>[Flash Step: Teleport to the location of the Sacred Blade if it is within one mile.]This is CLEARLY the best one. Throwing your sword then teleporting to it is the best.>[Detonation(Fire): Cause a delayed explosion to an injured enemy encompassing a 5 foot radius.][Lifesteal(Dark): Absorb the souls of slain enemies to heal injuries on self]I doubt we'll have enough allies to make use of Healing Hands and the ability to keep ourself healthy is invaluable as a lone wanderer.
>>2989704How strong (generally. i don't need exact numbers so much as a ballpark) were we before we allocated stats?If we're strong enough to toss our sword half a mile or more (and able to land properly) the flash step actually sounds like a good idea for getting out of dangerous situations or swift travel.>Healing Hands. Let us not say that we didn't learn something from our teammates.Ice Barrier. Sounds like fun. We can't run out of water if we have this and it's difficult to maintain a supply of slightly clean water.I'm a little tempted by the lifesteal thing but that sounds like a trap option with bad long term side effects.

>>2989760But for what purpose?
>>2989704Flash StepHealing Hands Life StealFuck, missed the stats. Did the one with 25 magic win?

>>2989776Ah, the QM linked the build that one. Yes... Great.
>>2989780Since we have way too many options I'm going to support this one.
>>2989767Lifesteal sounds like a trap option towards becoming the next demon lord.Our defense is shot so we're going to need healing if we're weaker than we used to be.Ice barrier sounds good but I'm not that anonDetonation sounds nasty as fuck but the OP image doesn't make us look like we go big or go home when it comes to damage dealing so the enemy is probably dead before we can explode them. Unless that works on corpses? Then we can kick them into groups of enemies?
>>2989791>Lifesteal sounds like a trap option towards becoming the next demon lord.I like this path though
>>2989791A singular dark skill won't lock us into demon lord path yet.Hopefully.
>>2989801Yeah, but it's a slippery slope. I imagine a lot of dark skills are very good from a strictly mechanical point of view. The more we refuse it from the start the easier it would be to continue refusing.
>>2989704>>[Flash Step: Teleport to the location of the Sacred Blade if it is within one mile.]Throw sword past enemy, teleport, catch sword, slice. Also makes it really easy to jump/triple jump/ whatever.>[Ice Barrier(Water): Summon a wall of ice to block incoming attacks]Less for straight defense, more for obfuscation of our followup tactics.>>[Detonation(Fire): Cause a delayed explosion to an injured enemy encompassing a 5 foot radius.]Because explosions.
>>2989704>[Flash Step: Teleport to the location of the Sacred Blade if it is within one mile.]I'm cool with any combination of magic that doesn't involve lifesteal.
>>2989801Lock? No, but if the souls can keep yammering/gibbering after we steal them it's going to eventually drive us mad.
Life steal sounds super useful. And becoming the next demon lord doesn't sound bad either.
>>2989818This seems good for preference
Flash Step, Healing Hands, and Detonation were the most common. Typing up now.
Is it weird that i'm imagining our late game character as the Pursuer from DS2?
>>2989835>Healing HandsBig healing magic for all those living allies we have.
>>2989856Healing evolves into regeneration usually, I bet we'll get something good later.
>>2989856I sense sarcasm. We can double as a doctor. The patients sure as hell won't want to rat us out.It also might eventually heal our long term injuries.
Also healing hands = job as a magic healer if we're strapped for cash. It's useful even outside of battle.
I think my only real beef with Flash Step is that it seems like it requires a lot of strength to actually use to it's fullest degree as what the anons have intended for it. And since we've basically gone full dodge tank with barely an increase in strength, we're not going to get much out of it in comparison to to Fatal Swiftness or Flight of Foot since Fatal can eat most types of armor and FoF gives us damn good mobility in uneven terrain.Just my two pennies on the matter.>>2989856To be fair, I think a big reason that some picked it was to see if we counted as a "other" for it's requirements.
>>2989866I'd be lying if I said the idea of a one armed, one eyed loner that's about to be public enemy #1 getting healing magic right off the back didn't make me laugh.
>>2989866>>2989873Why do I always forget to refresh
>>2989875You raise a good point, but just because we're going dodge tank doesn't mean we can't pump SOME strength. Heck, after taking that skill, that was exactly my plan. Presuming next level up was another 400, my spread would probably be something like this:>Strength +200>Magic +50>Speed +100>Defense +50
>>2989885Going the investment route I see, alrighty.Well I hope that your plan will work out smoothly, 'cause otherwise we're up shit creek without a paddle.
>>2989875It probably will, but even just short distances is useful if we toss a blade into a person , port to the blade, and than remove the blade to stab anyone we ported past in the back. Being a melee also has the main weakness of range and this at least sightly makes up for it. Bypassing all armour means nothing if they're shooting us from far away until we have true ranged options.>>2989885My personal plan was basically use the ice barriers to compensate for whatever low defense we have. Maybe as it gets higher they can become floating shields? Defense looks to be our dump stat and magic won't be going much higher outside of utility/defense spells since we'd have been a magician if we had aptitude for it at the start.Run fast and hitting like a truck is not something our enemies are going to enjoy.
>>2989875You don't just not choose a teleporting ability, no matter what the circumstances.
>>2989910I mean, I DID vote for Ice Barriers myself.
>>2989918I never said we don't NOT choose, I'm saying that we went two different directions and ended up potentially weakening ourselves for it for a good long chunk of time.And hell, it's already chosen so I don't know about you but I'm gonna try and make the best of this situation.
With your abilities selected you closed the menu. This was all wrong. When you fought the Demon Lord, you had over a dozen abilities, but now you were simply a shadow of what you used to be. You looked over your stats again and again to see if you were missing anything. It all seemed set in stone though and you groaned in annoyance.Now however, you needed to vacate the area. Leaving the corpses where they were, you continued off in the direction you had originally been heading before you were rudely intercepted by the Royal Soldiers. Now that all was said and done you considered the consequences to your actions. Did you care? Maybe. Could anyone stop you? Maybe another hero, but...they were all dead now.The capital was a days ride away. For a moment you considered finding the King and giving him a piece of your mind. However, to go back to the place you swore you would never find yourself brought back to again would be....distasteful. You thought about your options. It wouldn't be even a half days ride to the closest town away from the Capital. Then there was the option of leaving Avalis all together. The Varron Empire lay to the west, about a few days travel, and was big enough to lay low...but would that cause more problems for yourself with the King of Avalis seeking the Sacred Blade?>Head to the closest town.>Head to the Capital.>Head towards the border.>Continue to wander aimlessly.>Other/Write in(Gonna pause here for now. I'm GMT+8 and gotta head to work soon. Will try to continue afterwards.)
>>2989972Find some unclaimed land to build our own kingdom
>>2989972>Head towards the border.Yeah I'm cool with metaphorically telling the King to go fuck himself since he's so intent on treating us as a tool instead of a proper war vet. He's also crazy if he tries to start a war with the empire to get to us.>>2989989I'm cool with this as a long term goal.
>>2989989I mean, that was what I figured the eventual endgoal should be, but we need resources to do that, first.>Head towards the border.
>>2989989Time to start a kingdom in the land of demon lord then :^)>>2989972Let's just head to the closest town and try to get some news. Maybe hit up some contacts we made during the questing?
>>2989972Lets ditch this kingdom and chill elsewhere>Head towards the border.
>>2989972>>Head towards the border.
>>2989972Head Toward the border.
>>2989972Head towards the border. Spend that sack of gold on some dude heading the opposite direction or pay a smith to melt the gold down and exchange it for another metal. Having Availis currency is sure to leave a trail for us to be followed.Alternatively if there's a major city on our path we use it to buy some nice equipment and maybe some books about past heroes. We need to research why the king wants the sword. We can't steal from the king's library since we're so much weaker now but we can see if there are any patterns we can notice.
>>2990052Don't do that. It's gold. It's worth it's weight in gold. melt it down into ingots or something.
>>2990058It's a trouble magnet and once we leave the country we won't be able to research the history of their heroes as well.A random stranger with tons of cash is also highly conspicuous so best to attract the attention before we disappear instead of after so that all of the countries that might be looking for us know where we are.In retrospect our armour/equipment is probably already fucking awesome so there's no need to get something new unless there's something suspicious that's been done to it by the King.I'd still try and get something that eases our travel even if it's something stupid like a blonde wig and disguise kitI was also trying to exchange the gold for something of roughly equal worth since for all we know the King can track it like I pointed out way back >>2989515If we get something worth all of that gold then it doesn't matter to us if we got some valuable stuff we can sell later. We were supposedly doing fine without the gold before. I don't see why we suddenly absolutely need to have our wealth be in the form of gold now. Exchange it for some spices or something. The last thing we need is a trail of breadcrumbs leading back to us.
>>2990109We could just shave off all our hair.Who expects a bald women exactly? It'd be a great disguise. Maybe symbolic that we're cutting off ties with our hair
>>2990109>Exchange it for some spices or something.I like your style.
>>2990109As long as we don't flash all the gold around we'll be fine. Coin is coin, gold is gold. I doubt anyone can tell where we got the gold from
>>2990114If some random person pays you in Canadian dollars you would know hes not from the same country. (assuming you aren't a canada anon)Same idea here. You can say the other stuff is paranoid but melt that gold down because any fantasy spy agency or the guards worth a shit are going to see that as a reason to keep an eye on you. Especially when international conflicts are brewing. We don't want people noticing us. Having weird money from a possibly enemy state makes people notice us.
>>2990121>>2990161Linked the retarded shitpost instead of yours by accident.
>>2990114I agree, after shaving our head we should gouge our eyes out as well,I mean, how is some bald blind lady going to slay a demon lord? Maybe cut off our other arm for good measure.
>>2990161While we're in the country, there is no reason to not spend the coin. It would be more suspicious if we pay for everything in unmarked gold lumps rather than the standardized currency, It's not suspicious for someone to pay for shit in cnaadian dollars WHEN WE"RE IN CANADA
>>2990198But I didn't say to buy in unmarked gold while we're here. I said melt the stuff down in preparation for foreign lands. Buying with the gold while in the same country is perfectly fine and I'm entirely confused as to where you got that idea from. The border is only a few days away.
Just get a cloak and some non-perishable trade goods. Maybe even a cart. Even better if we get them in different cities/town/hamlets along the way.
>>2990216You said trade all the gold for random other crap of worth. That's a dumb idea, because gold has the most wealth per pound. I said melt it down into ingots once we cross the boarder.
>>2990198That's the twist.This isn't Canada, it's a purgatory meant to test us. In reality our friends are alive, but we died when our pride got the better of us and we tried to take the Demon King on alone. Only by overcoming our pride shall we be granted entrance to Valhalla.
>>2990231Can't we do an exchange of coins. Like gold coins of this kingdom for that kingdom. Or just buying a homesteading wagon with the appropriate equipment as we go off into the untamed wilderness of Canada. We can be pseudo Mountie!
>>2990236I don't know. I'm fairly certain Valhalla has a pretty lax policy when it comes to prideful braggarts. Vikings weren't the most humble people
>>2990231Spices have the most wealth per pound. Gold is mostly just heavy as shit. Otherwise you're arguing over whether we melt it down before we cross or after we cross which doesn't matter unless the gold is marked/trackable is some form. Not really worth getting into a psuedo argument over.We're on the run here and unless we were living dirt poor our cost of living doesn't require an influx of raw cash. Exchange it for something. Sell that something in the other country, and then skip off somewhere to hide. Cloaks and disguises are useful of course as well as some way to hide our giant holy sword but otherwise there doesn't seem to be an immediate need for raw gold atm.
>>2990198>It's not suspicious for someone to pay for shit in Canadian dollars WHEN WE"RE IN CANADAEverytime I've been to Canada, people preferred to trade in American Dollars.
>>2990245Double twist.We're already facing eternal damnation and this is all an illusion brought on us as punishment/induced by insanity. We'll struggle in vain to reach Valhalla for eternity.
>>2990257>Cloaks and disguises are useful of course as well as some way to hide our giant holy sword but otherwise there doesn't seem to be an immediate need for raw gold atm.Could hide it outside towns, use flash step if we are ambushed
>>2990257>as well as some way to hide our giant holy swordI thought we could just dispel it?
>>2990290Not sure. I know we can summon it but the flash step thing makes me wonder if we had simply left it in our backpack or something.
>>2990290Pretty sure we can just put it into our inventory.
>>2990003>>2990008>>2990015>>2990016>>2990035As long as you stayed in Avalis, the King would never stop sending his cronies to recover the Sacred Blade. The corpses would eventually be found, and some might even come to attempt to claim your inevitable bounty. The Empire would provide the sanctuary you needed however. It was large and diverse enough to give the King pause as to where you could be, especially if you donned a different appearance. With your mind made up, you continued down the road, taking the first turn that would take you to the west. Luckily the rest of your day proved to be uneventful, and before you knew it, the sun had began to set. You had forfeited the opportunity to reach a town, but the next one was only a half days travel from here, and from there the Border was only another day away. Unfortunately, you did not possess night vision as the Demi-Humans did (and full vision as most regular folk did), and so you decided to camp for the night.As you sat around the fire that you had created, the events of the day truly came crashing down on you. You had killed humans. Self-Defense sure...but would it be enough ammunition for the King to make you a wanted criminal? He likely would simply call any of your claims as outright fabrications. "Gods forbid the Royal army commit any unsavory acts..." You mutter. The King wouldn't allow his precious army's name to be sullied. Still....did you need to be that brutal? All your pent up grief had poured out in a wave of violence.You thought back to the moment the Soldiers life had disappeared in your very hand. You had felt...>Satisfaction. Getting all your pent up Grief out on them was just what you needed.>Disgust. They had seen fit to threaten your life, and yet they couldn't even post a remote threat.>Regret. You didn't want to kill them, but they left you with no choice.>Excitement. The fear in his eyes when he realized his fate was in your hands was...bliss.>Other/Write in
>>2991381>>Satisfaction. Getting all your pent up Grief out on them was just what you needed.
>>2991381>Disappointment. His death offered you no catharsis from your cruel reality. Worse yet you felt no guilt either, no spark of conscience belonging to a hero. Just a familiar resignation.
>>2991381>Emptiness. After fighting so long for the kingdom and men like them you expected to feel more, but you mostly felt tired.
>>2991381>Satisfaction. Getting all your pent up Grief out on them was just what you needed.
>>2991381>Disgust. They had seen fit to threaten your life, and yet they couldn't even post a remote threat.Being underestimated after slaying a demon king is pretty disheartening. What, did they think it was luck?

>>2991381>Loss. This is how incompetent the soldiers are. This is how incompetent the KING is. And everyone who wasn't is dead, with the best hope being that 3 more innocent bastards are going to get dragged into this mess.
>>2991381>Regret. You didn't want to kill them, but they left you with no choice
It was regret. Why did they have to push you to that point? Why did those idiots see fit to try and attack a hero? You're practically a legendary warrior, and although your power is now but a fraction of what it was, you were still significantly stronger than a majority of human warriors barring perhaps a party of elite adventurers in your current state."I'm sorry Leana." You apologize. Perhaps if she had been here she would of been able to diffuse the situation, as you were never one for words before. You continue to brood, trying to decipher your feelings further on your first time killing other Humans in this world. A dull ache continues in your chest as you pick out that your Disappointed. His death offered you no catharsis from your cruel reality. Worse yet you felt no guilt either, no spark of conscience belonging to a hero. Just a familiar resignation. In that moment the 'Hero Elisa' did not exist, just a shell of the woman. Your body had been on autopilot, and as usual you were simply along for the ride. What's even worse was how...easy it was. To have someones life in the palm of your hands and yet you felt absolutely resigned. As though this was simply an inevitable outcome."You all always had your reasons for fighting...but what do I do now? Expended by the very King that had begged for our help...what do I do everyone?" Before, you told yourself that you would fight for your companions, but that was moot now. Why do you continue?>Purposeless. You cannot think of a reason to fight anymore. Every action you take is guided by 'why', and you feel yourself simply being dragged from place to place with great effort. In the end, this is your fate.>Peace.

You've fought and struggled enough. You've been the hero already, and you wont let yourself get dragged into another charade. You will find a calm, quiet life, on your own terms, however far the journey may take you. Let whoever comes after this take up the mantle of 'hero'.As the fire continued to burn, you slowly began to close your eyes as exhaustion began to overtake you. Tomorrow would be a new day, and when you made it to the Varron Empire, you could pursue the peaceful life you so desired.-------------------You broke camp when the sun began to rise, not wanting to waste any time, and continuing to head west. You figured you would encounter a few travellers the closer you got to a town, but your first passerby's of the day are more than mere travellers.The Demi-Humans were the first thing to catch your eye. All seven were shackled. The men, woman, and child seemed exhausted, and they were being escorted by at least five men, one of which was of the robed variety. A portly man sat atop a horse as they travelled, likely the leader of this group if you had to guess. The Demi-Humans wore torn and heavily worn clothes. The young boy who upon closer inspection sported a wolf tail, attempted to stay close to his mother, only to be forcibly seperated by one of the guards as they walked. The guard seemed irritated, he'd possibly been doing this quite a bit.If any sentient race had severely suffered for the defeat of the Demon Lord, it was Demi-Humans whom many had thrown their lot in with the Demon Lord. As a result, the post-war institutions promoting Demi-Human slavery were booming with an influx of 'goods'. You hadn't spoken out when you had found out about this, too distraught over the deaths of your friends. Now however, you were witnessing the transport of said 'goods' in person. For now, the group seemed content to pass you by. However, were you?>Nod to the portly man and continue on your way. An unfortunate after effect of the war, but not your business to intervene in.>Stop in front of the group. You didn't speak out back then, but now would be different.

>>2991751>Nod to the portly man and continue on your way. An unfortunate after effect of the war, but not your business to intervene in.No more killing
>>2991755>>2991760>>2991776You had sworn last night that the life you intended to live would be one of tranquility. You were nobody's hero any longer. This however, was something you had a hand in causing. Children that would grow up knowing slavery had you to thank for destroying their hope of freedom, and their parents as well. The lot of Demi-Humans wasn't amazing before the war, and many claim to have fought for the Demon Lord to escape Human subjugation. Their rights since rescinded, it didn't matter who fought or why. Demi-Humans were the lowest type of citizen now, barring monstrous races.You stop in front of the group and they do so as well. The guards take their attention off the Demi-Humans and look at you. The portly man speaks up."You're in our way, and I have places to be. Unless you have business with me, step aside please." He says matter-o-factly."You traffic even children?" You inquire. It's a tone of accusation. These children did not fight, and whatever their parents may have done was irrelevant. To have them suffer for the actions of other Demi-Humans was wrong."Different strokes for different folks. They're pretty moldable from a young age. All sorts of possibilities with them. Make for some of my best sales honestly." He tells you with a grin. No guilt whatsoever. This was simply day to day business for him."Now do you have an interest in one? Maybe one of the men?" He suggests to you, gesturing to a shirtless Demi-Human male with Bull horns.>Ask him to name what he wants for the Demi-Humans.>Threaten him to release the Demi-Humans.>Attempt to use your status to secure their release.>Make a (fatal/non-fatal) example of one of his men.>Other/Write in.
>>2991751>Stop in front of the group. You didn't speak out back then, but now would be different. The sins of the father do not pass on to the son.It doesnt stop anything. Its just the portly man whos unlucky and the demihumans who are "lucky".Im not really feeling too hot about rehabilitating them into a society though.
>>2991884>Threaten him to release the Demi-Humans.>>Attempt to use your status to secure their release.Upon the sacred sword's name, release them. Your nobles and kings may have agreed to this, but your heroes never did. You were unlucky to meet me
>>2991884>Threaten him to release the Demi-Humans.>>2991894We can't use our status, it would just draw the King to us again.
>>2991884>Make a (fatal/non-fatal) example of one of his men
>>2991884>>Ask him to name what he wants for the Demi-Humans.
>>2991895Yeah. They probably can't move as fast as we can so we need as much time as possible before he figures out what happened. I personally suggest taking the slavers, gagging them, and making them pose with the general slave population as we drag them along past the border.
>>2991884Support>>2991894Might as well milk that title for as long as we can
>>2991895Good. Let him pick a fight with the other country when we cross the border.At the end of the day, we'll only have harmed a handful of people and freed a slightly larger number of slaves that can be recaptured with enough effort.If he wants to spin it into a story to defame us, he probably has plenty other material to work with. The only issue is that the slave angle gives the Empire more of a reason to look for us as well.But that's an okayish cost to try and help.
>>2991941I'm more worried about uniting the countries in a shared vendetta.
>>2991945That's.....EXACTLY what I said
>>2991941We could probably spin it as all of the beastmen being OUR war spoils. Our friends defeated the demon lord with us and not them. They are OUR right to do with as we please and them being enslaved does not please us.
>>2991959That's basically the same as buying them, only we pick more fights.
Although you did have business with the slave trader, it was not the kind that he would of preferred. You summon the Sacred Blade to your hand and the guards grab the hilts of their swords, unsure on how to proceed. The Slave Trader moves back slowly."If you think you can simply shake me down, you have another thing coming!" The man shouts and gestures for his men to come in front and protect him."Upon the sacred sword's name, release them. Your nobles and kings may have agreed to this, but your heroes never did. You were unlucky to meet me." You say flatly. The mans eyes shift to realization on who you are, as do the guards.>Roll 1d100

>>2991982The man was taken aback, as though unsure on how to reply to your declaration."The war is over Hero. We may have you to thank for killing the Demon Lord, but if you think your word weighs more than the King in these times of peace then your arrogance is astounding." He spat before recomposing himself."I do have you to thank for my prosperity however. I would be willing to gift you one of these creatures as a gesture of good faith....if you allow me to continue on my way. This is my livelihood and I cannot simply part with them all." He suggests. It was plain as day he was trying to bribe you, unwilling to set his guards upon you...yet. What common sense the soldiers may have lacked, this man is somewhat more wary.In the back, the Demi-Humans stood idly. Many of their faces had a familiar resignation on them.

Kill the slavers.
Maybe buy the slaves and tell the slaver that if we ever see him dealing in such shady stuff again, death will be a slow and welcome release for him
>>2992015>Ask about purchasing more.
>>2992015"Someone who cowered on the sidelines has no right to the spoils of war, I will make you hurt for laying claim to and damaging my property."Kill the noble's guards and injure the noble, he will talk to his noble friends and maybe it will send a message to them.
>>2992032>>2992098You know we arent entitled to everything right? We even if thats how claims worked, we didnt press the claim in the immediate aftermath, so forfeited it.
>>2992106That is why we use force to back it up
>>2992106Who cares? We're NOT gonna line this asshole's pockets lol.
>>2992106I don't see any kings here to argue against us.
looking at this from a modern perspective, no one in their right mind is okay with involuntary slavery.between the king trying to steal our sacred weapon, and openly approving of slavery it's pretty much inevitable that we will have to fight him.likely he has already stolen our friends weapons to summon new heroes.I say we try and raise our friends from the dead, steal back their weapons, and bring total war on this asshole.or build our own democratic meritocracy.
>>2992223No resurrections, we just have to persuade the new heroes to our side
>>2992223I'd rather just punish
>>2992223There's also the admitting to lying to our faces.At least one of the more proactive heroes that died might have considered the implications of that and immediately assassinated him.I have to wonder what outlandish claims he's been making in our name before then since he was using the power of the heroes for political clout but we weren't actually involved in anything.No to resurrection. If that was possible we'd have already tried to do it or whatever friend knew healing magic would have done it in front of us and we'd be trying to find a healer capable of it like he/she could.>>2992228The note makes it sound like the summoning is incomplete without our sword to make the 4th. If it wasn't such a dick move to whomever the new 4th would be we could probably hijack the whole thing by doing the summoning ourselves depending upon the mechanics of it.If things somehow spiral into us accidentally creating a wide scale democracy and demonstrating there's no need for kings it would certainly be useful when heroes come knocking. Us asking them to fill out immigration forms would certainly put them off balance when they try to storm the castle.
>>2992015 >Kill the slavers outright.probably a bit late
>>2992266we clearly aren't aware of everything magic can and can't do in this world. my understanding is we were summoned and sort of just went with the flow instead of asking too many questions.fuck that.we have a LOT of options as far as they go. For example, the king cannot simply declare us to be some kind of monster without good evidence. We also likely have the massive public support and sympathy befitting someone who literally saved the world.unless anon's just want to become Demon Lord 2
>>2992354I said we should use the gold to buy some books for research on the way out but that turned into an argument about how we should keep the money. Anons are bizarrely attached to that gold we got.At least one of the heroes (and the enemies we've fought) had to be a magician too, so even if we don't know things in depth, we (MC)should have more of an inking about it as a character than we (as the audience) have seen.
>>2992015Kill the slavers outright. No need to waste our gold.
>>2992363it's not that they are attached to the gold so much as not wanting a slaving dick to profit from his work.honestly the ONLY reason not to murder this guy is because it looks bad. actually....>>2992015>otherenslave the man, and his guards
They cast their lot with the losing faction and now they are paying the price. Maybe not the child but are we gonna go around and fix everyones problems or what? What are we supposed to do with a bunch of slaves? Free them? They will just get enslaved again unless you want to babysit them. Conscript them into fighting le bad evil mornach for you?Nice ones you Schizos. Literally opposite to a calm quiet life.I say we accept his bribe and leave it without anymore bloodshed.>>2992015Accept the slavers offer to take one slave.
>>2992797context anon. Literally the sentence before that shows that I wasn't talking about us doing something stupid like paying the slaver.>>2992934Or we see if these beastmen know a sneaky route to the border.
>>2992934the king literally is an evil dick who enlisted our aid by lying to us, used us and our friends, plotted to steal our sword for his own ends, and outwardly condones slavery.to say nothing of the fact that shit was so bad for demi-humans that they signed up with a guy named Demon Lord just for a chance at better treatment.also, we WANT a quiet life, but we obviously aren't going to GET it.
>>2993263100% agree. We were pawns sacrificed for the greed of man. I imagine we weren't even intended to survive to begin with. This is not a world worth protecting.
>>2993263You forgot that the summoning itself technically counts as kidnapping too. We have family that we will never see again and if we have any children they will only know about them and our home world through fantastical half-remembered stories.
>>2993263I feel that that's we should at least make a token effort to aim for a peaceful life and not make waves and not aiming for a aim uprisings or whatever dumb shit your guys are gonna cook up. Feels like we are just paying lip service to wanting a peaceful life after just one post.
>>2993328We can go out into the frontier (if there is one) where there's unclaimed land and make a remote little cottage or something.
>>2993279I wouldn't go so far as saying the world, but there is no reason for us to be it and for that protection being used to further the goals of some man we should have sliced the throat out of months ago.>>2993328So long as stupid shit isn't happening right in front of us we won't be actively searching for heroic deeds and it's not like we've been going out of our way so far. We are at least a slightly moral person which is probably part of why we got summoned as a hero.
>>2992015>Ask about purchasing more.Eh, we wanted to offload the gold anyway. If money is all he cares about, we have some to throw away to assuage our guilt for staying silent.Though I'd ask about a bulk discount for the Hero of Avalis. We're saving him and his men a trip.
>>2993557It occurs to me way too late that we could try to use appraisal on the gold to check for curses.
>>2992017>>2992020>>2992034>>2992096>>2992684>>2993557>>2993757>>2993872>>2993910The thought had crossed your mind of killing the slavers outright. It was highly unlikely they would be able to resist you no matter how much they tried, but why instigate further violence? You summoned the bag of gold from your inventory and held it in your hand. The slaver obviously took notice."And how much would it cost to take more off your hands?" You asked. The Slavers mood noticeably brightened. Now you were speaking his language."Well I need at least some stock to present went I get to Ivoran, but you could take two more off my hands for say...a hundred gold each?" Your eyes widened. That was highway robbery! If only Yukimura was here to haggle...he was always good at that."Now I know what your thinking, but these are quality slaves! Strong and Obedient. The collars they come with make them susceptible to all your commands if you own the key." He explained. An obedience collar it seemed. The resignation made sense now. They had no free will, even if they would have tried to muster up some resistance it would be supressed. Perhaps it was a valid safety measure given their original choices of siding with the Demon Lord? You had doubts. For now however, you only had 250 Avalan gold in your possession. You could purchase two more with the addition of the one free slave."I don't suppose you offer a bulk discount for the Hero of Avalis? That's less for you to escort on your way to Ivoran." You suggest. He mulls over your suggestion for a moment."Well...despite your arrogance, I suppose I could still profit at eighty gold each, but I can't part with more than what I've offered. What do you say? Do we have a deal?" He asks excitedly.>Accept his offer and take your pick of the slaves.>Decline his offer. He asks for too much and now you'll show him how well you tolerate slavers.>Other/Write-in
>>2993933Leave without buying any.
>>2993933>Accept his offer and take your pick of the slaves.Tsk, distasteful as it is, it's the law of the land for the time being. Save who you can, with that discount you can even afford to feed and clothe them until you figure out where to settle down.
>>2993933>LeaveEven if we free them they will get captured by slavers gain. There's nothing we can do.
>>2993933Go. It's not worth it
>>2993941I dislike us copping out like this but if we actually do go this route I think the slaves should pick the ones we free. Say for him to deactivate the collars. There's not point for us in grabbing a slave with an unknown temperament since we aren't going to be using those collars.Whether or not that option wins there's still that one free slave the slaver offered us at the start.
>>2993933>Take the free slave then leave
>>2993933>>Other/Write-inLeave without buying
>>2993933>You WILL sell all of them for 100 gold.
>>2993933>>Accept his offer and take your pick of the slaves
>>2993933>Purchase 2 at 90 each>Make them promise to feed the others one good meal, and don't spread word of what we've attempted to do.Let him think we're chumps, but pawn off a good amount of that gold to him. The rest will go to food and clothes for the slaves, supplies for us, and whatever's left will be a choice for the slaves. Will they be willing to take blood money for a starting sum to attempt new lives?This is all after we've crossed the border, of course.
>>2993933>Refuse and Leave
>Decline his offer. He asks for too much and now you'll show him how well you tolerate slavers.
how fickle we look to stop them like this then just leave
>>2993933>>Decline his offer. Be on our way
>>2993933Accept his offer. "We don't need the golds, guys!">sees price"Nevermind, we do!"I just wanted to kill them, baka
>>2994123>>2994049At the bottom of QM's post, the man says he'll sell them for 80 each.
>>2994238Yes? Did you need me to do the math for you and say>accept the offer>add 20 for separate deal?
>>2994241I know what math you were doing, I wasn't sure if you were trying to jew 100 down to 90, without realizing the price was 80.
>>2993935>>2993943>>2993964>>2993968>>2994132>>2993975>>2994204(Sorry about the length it took to get this up. Ended up knocking out after work.)You shake your head. He seems disappointed in your choice but doesn't try to negotiate. Clearly he's confident that when he gets to Ivoran that he can meet his expectations in trying to sell them. You would consider freeing the slaves, but you already had the blood of the soldiers on your hands. Did you need to sully them more with people who were practicing a legitimate business, despite how you and your world looked upon it?You walked by the Slaves and contemplated the original offer. Even if you weren't purchasing any additional, you could still take the one you were promised. There were seven slaves to choose from if it was still in your interest. Three of them were Bull Demi-Humans, very common in the Demon Lord's Army as shock troops of the Demi-human faction. It wasn't surprising you would come across a handful of them. Two more men were Horse Demi-Humans, and the single Woman and Young Boy were Wolf Demi-Humans, often renowned for their tracking skills and sense of smell. Wolf Demi-Humans were often seen running down stragglers and those fleeing battles.You weighed your options.>Take your one promised Demi Human. (Specify: Bull, Horse, Wolf Female, Wolf Child]>Leave. Taking care of a Slave while trying to cross the border is too much trouble.>Take one slave and release them immediately. (Specify: Bull, Horse, Wolf Female, Wolf Child]>Other/Write in
>>299425040 gold for hush money is a rather suspiciously generous. Heck, so is 20, but considering we're the Hero leaning on the expensive side is alright.
>>2994254Separating one from their family and friends sounds like an entirely terrible idea.>Just ask to heal them and leavegrind dat heal exp
>>2994254Can't we just buy one for 80? I'd rather we take the wolf mother and son.
>>2994254>>>Take your one promised Demi Human. Wolf Female
>>2994254>>Just ask to heal them and leaveTaking care of a slave is a hassle. We did our best to ease their pain.
>>2994259how does that in any way help?okay we've healed them... so what? now they are healthy mind raped slaves.>>2994254>otherrender the slaver and guards unconscious, free the demi humans, put the collars on the humans and leave
>>2994284actually, a slave caravan would make excellent cover for crossing the border
>>2994284it DOESN'T help them.But it's fairly hard to get healing exp. Either you continually risk your life, or you get famous as a free healer.
>>2994254>Just ask to heal them and leave
>>2994254>Leave. Taking care of a Slave while trying to cross the border is too much trouble.
>>2994287>metagame the reason.we don't even know if that's how things work in this world. and do you really think we won't ever have a chance to heal ourselves or others?this entire encounter has been pointless if all we do is a bit of healing and nope not my problem away.if for no other reason than the second this slave owning dick gets back to the kingdom to learn the king is looking for us he will immediately tell the king where he saw us. and that will bring trouble down on us.
>>2994306Taking his slaves would only give him more of a reason to do that. We can bribe him if you want, but it's either that or outright crush/kill.
>>2994306Exactly. First we went "Nah, we won't kill them, we'll just buy them!"Then we went, "Nah, we won't buy them or take the free one, we'll just leave them to their fate!"
>>2994312It's honestly quite annoying how wishywashy our decisions are getting. I'm guessing it's the results of each "faction" not considering that they lost the previous vote so changing our mind so hard would be out of character?
>>2994325I'm not a fan of how meta the healing vote is either. Anons splitting the vote is another thing that needs to be considered. When you don't want an option that's leading to win, the best thing to do at that point is to pick the option that's in second place.
>>2994331Not sure meta is the right word for the healing vote. Lifesteal and explosions sound a bit grisly when all of our current possible enemies are humans. I didn't see it as being meta so much as MC not being THAT far down the dark path yet to go for the guro options. She's still heroic. She still cares slightlyThe most theoretically meta vote I see that got ignored was us claiming all beastmen as spoils of war since while I didn't go out to plan it, I could easily see word spiraling out of our control and beastmen all of the world suddenly flocking to whatever remote place we chose to attempt to live the quiet life to thwart our objective of a peaceful life.>>2994254>Not being able to comitt is how they got enslaved and you got dragged along in the King's plans in the first place.>Appraise EVERYONE incase one of them is far stronger than expected or something. Maybe they have tags stating they're criminals. If he's running around with a pack of wanted men we just got an alabi.How could anons forget that the first rule of appraisal is to appraise EVERYTHING?>>2994310Knowing that the king is after us gives him MORE motive to sell the information to the king and leave a slave tracker on whichever one we pick. We're on the run. What are we going to do? Turn around and catch him? Bribery is useless if he has no reason to honour the bribe.
>>2994350I don't understand. Are you disagreeing with me or not?All I see is that there's not much we can do to convince the merchant not to tattle on us, so do you want to kill him or what?
>>2994374I would like to kill him.desu, I want a revote on killing him, I think most people would agree that killing him is the best option at this point.
OP dead party over
>>2994383No. Not really. We swore off violence. We are searching for peace and tranquility not for more blood in our hands.
>>2994374I'm just trying a third option to present more info and giving advice instead of continuing the current voting war. if I can't convince people one way or the other then the current stalemate we're having is going to stay where it is. I'd like to kill them or slap those slaver collars on them but clearly MC needs one last push in any direction. (I guess that fits our along for the ride personality even if it is a little annoying?) Hence I am searching for whatever that push is.
>>2994392Not everyone aligns with your views on how the MC should proceed.
>>2994392Peace and tranquility is difficult to find against the backdrop of suffering and anguish.
>>2994383>>2994393I'm not against killing him, I suppose.I'm just rather apathetic to what we'll do after between triggering demon lord flags and having pain in the ass dependents to deal with. Just setting them free is around 2-3 kinds of bad idea.Slapping the slave collar.....well if we don't take him across the border since that would get us arrested for human slavery, either he'll starve to death or someone will find him and he'll spill the beans. Can we order a collared person to keep themselves fed?
>>2994383Its this indecisiveness that is making it bad, if we were going to go down that route we should have done it earlier, at this point we are going to end up making character inconsistencies.
>>2994399From a meta perspective:QM gave some pretty big hints stuff we can do with them in the short term. The wolves are trackers so they know the ways that people hide from them. The probably centaurs could let us hitch a ride to get away faster than the king can give chase. The bulls are probably a combat companion for a planned encounter if we aren't taking the sneak out with the wolves or ride fast via horse routes.Ergo, the slaves are not 100% useless and are actually pretty important. Even if we abandoned them they'd still want to go in roughly the same area/direction since we want somewhere remote so we aren't getting rid of them THAT easily.
>>2994404It's not like we haven't been trying.
>>2994404>Character inconsistencies. Ironically us being inconsistent is the most in character thing right now due to our backstory. Our friends are the ones that gave us the final push to do things and they aren't here anymore.
>>2994412You mean unironically, right?
You'd originally stopped out of a sense of guilt. To see people in chains had come as a shock to you, someone who hadn't witnessed slavery first hand but knew your victory had a place in its current foundation. As you had continued to converse with the Slaver however, doubts on your original intentions began to surface. Taking care of a slave was a lot of work, and even if you did free them all, what was stopping them from simply being captured again later? Would taking them with you put them in even moe danger with the King after you?Walking towards the Slaves, you began to cast [Healing Hands] to heal minor bruises, cuts, and other light injuries. The Slaver didn't plan to stop you it seemed, and you could only take deep breaths. You wanted to apologize, but their kind had killed many humans as well, and so you held your tongue out of a begruding rememberance of the war."I appreciate you giving them a little more value. People will pay more for slaves in good condition." The man laughs. Regardless of your intentions, many of the Demi-Humans nod and smile at you, appreciative of your magic."This is your fault." The woman says, hesitant to subject herself to your healing as you approach her. "Our one chance at freedom and you killed him. Now it'll be what...another hundred years before another Demon Lord rises? Another century of suffering?" She says in an angry whisper. She's appears to be an ex-soldier of the Demon Lords army by her tone. "If Humans could be content with what they had, the Monstrous races would never of needed to unite to protect themselves." So that was how she looked at it? You supposed it was a matter of perspective. Though it was the King that had told you that the Demon Lord had started the war, was he the most trustworthy source of information at this point?Curiosity getting the better of you, you decide to appraise the Wolf Woman and everyone around.Status:Name: FestaStrength: 74Speed: 92Defense: 83Magic: 19Titles - Survivor, Rebellious Slave, Pack AlphaKnown Abilities & Ailments - [Call of the wild: Take the form of a Direwolf.][Obedience Collar - Possessor of the Collars key can command the creature to take any action.]Next, you check the guards, they are rather unremarkable, only a few points extra in each category than the soldiers you had killed before.

It wasn't overtly difficult to piece the dots together and figure out that the man had a knack for causing his disobedient slaves pain. "Quiet back there!" The portly man yells. The woman was going to continue speaking, but now no words could escape. She had been effectively silenced."Heal them already so I can be on my way. I've wasted enough time." He says, getting impatient. If Marcus or Leana were >Write-in(There won't be many times I solely do a write in option, but I feel there's enough indecisiveness on how MC should proceed that it's justified. If you guys want me to present options, I can do so.)
>>2994413I figured it was ironic that us having character inconsistencies is the most in character thing we can do when normally it's the exact opposite expectation.A quick double check at an online dictionary tells me i'm not confused about the dictionary meaning vs the new incorrect meaning. I'm guessing I went wrong with phrasing somewhere?
>>2994416>LeaveJust leave. The slaves hate us already and staying here too long accomplishes nothing.

And we definitely didn't find out that the King is almost cartoonishly evil. The fact that we didn't run into any slavery the entire journey also tells us that the human kingdoms were specifically HIDING slavery from us despite it being a "legitimate business." They know that most modern heroes don't condone that shit.
>>2994448No fucking discord, it will shit things up even more.How about we try and bluff him, exchange our holy sword and take the mother and child, tell him that you were planning on returning it to the King and that he would get paid well if he took the transportation mission in our stead.Then we wait until we are a few hours away and summon it back
