THUD!CRACK! The cold embrace of rotten flesh welcomes your mangled body. You were stripped of cloth and dignity, thrown among piles of corpses.

>>3330931>>3330947>>3330949There is little to remember from your childhood. You were kidnapped as child, you and others endured a long trek to the east where a giant sprawling castle stood tall among blistering dunes. The Home of deadly assassins of Yerim. There, your face and ears were torn off, You were cramped with other mutilated and featureless children in small cages, all were still undeserving of the beautiful glistening white mask hiding your true self.You and the rest of the children were pitted against a giant hairy ogre with a growling belly. The blood stained floor had nothing but rusty shivs , improvised bows and arrows.>You picked up a shiv>You picked up a bow and a bundle of arrows

>>3331121>>3331146When the moment was ripe, you climbed over the already exhausted ogre to gouge his eyes. A flurry of stabs in his thick neck has finished the job. You and a handful of other children stood over his fresh carcass in triumph. You have earned you very first mask. You have learned a skill: Analyze Years have passed since then, you have wet your blade against all colours of people from lowly peasants to spoiled princes. You were devoid of emotions. No remorse. No guilt. Nothing. The Great Shadowmaster Azrahar took an intrest in you personally. He have trusted you in one of the most elusive contracts, still unfulfilled to this day.....A forgotten god in blue, One of many who were imprisoned here in Synn...this bottomless pit, layers and layers of man-made and ancient dungeons. Like many gods here, He was mostly stripped of their divine status but all powerful nonetheless. At first, you would have to get caught. The Shadowmaster is kind, merciful. He provided you with a rarity from his personal vault to aid you in your endeavor.>The Tongue of K'kaaltee, an ancient stone parasite>The eye of Abhakem, a fallen creature of light.
>>3331205>>The Tongue of K'kaaltee, an ancient stone parasite
>>3334986The Shadowmaster had showed you a pallid tongue, still pulsating after many, many years. You know what needs to be done; you have sliced off your useless tongue to accommodate this precious gift. It yearned for living flesh, that ancient tongue. In a blink, it was firmly attached to your gushing wound. It is yours now. You have earned a skill: Stone Speech In order you reach your slumbering target. You have to be branded with the Laws of Synn . A more severe punishment which will have you thrown here. A fate by many is worse than death. This brand has supposedly a debilitating effect on either the body or the soul. You tried to remember what manner of transgression did you commit to earn your place here among the filthy and the forsaken.>You were branded on your chest after murdering a known religious figure of Mondee and her unborn child. >You were branded on your hands after slaughtering a camel sacred and holy in Yerim.
>>3335375>You were branded on your chest after murdering a known religious figure of Mondee and her unborn child. Go big or go home.
>>3335440An Allmother that you don't even recall her name. The new goddess of purity and soothing light, Mythriva , has entrusted her power to these Allmothers. Only them are allowed to birth the sisters of light whom will roam the land tending to the rampant sickness seeping from underground. The brand has made its mark on your chest, it has weakened your body. 'no light shall enter this chasm of true wickedness. Blessed shall not be this body in this life.' were their pathetic words. It suits you fine either way, you have no love for the gods, old or new. You have a brand of Synn (Innocence) Your mind quickly returns to the present as a brute figure has grabbed your mangled body. In your haze, you spotted mounds of naked flesh strapped together with spiked chains, a sadistic laugh escaped a crude bent helmet with fleshy bits oozing from its many holes. Your bones were squeezing out of your gaping wounds as this unknown figure dragged you to a small pool of black, bubbling ooze.In your weakened state, you couldn't resist anything. You allowed the ooze to overwhelm you. What grueling pain you once hand slowly began to subside; your wounds were closing on their own and yet you were sapped of any strength.Delicate pale fingers grew from the darkness surrounding you, they caressed your bare chest. A gentle stroke after another. Another embrace; that of cold pale woman with a twisted voice ringing in your ear. "Another mortal, scrambled and forsaken by the wretched above. Submit your soul to me, I am all. I am B'aholath, the true goddess of rebirth and shaper of flesh, USURPED AND BETRAYED. Submit your feeble flesh, godless wretch!" You care little about gods or worship, you do know that once a soul is bound to a certain god, it is forever theirs. The hulking brute watches you in silent, barely able to contain his throbbing excitement. >Refuse, You have no faith in any gods, let alone those who are so pitiful that they leech for followers to worship them>Accept. You will resort to any means to better your chances against reaching your target>Ask this facade a question [specify]

>>3335669A powerful force has expulsed you out of the pool followed by a soul scattering screech. Your limbs were trembling on their own, they betrayed your disdain for any god.The pile of rancid flesh has went amok, a dangerous mixture of insatiable lust mixed with primal rage. You were powerless to resist his relentless thrusts driven by deviant instincts . Pain was nothing new to your body. The pain soared up in your mind to the points that you were about to black out, had it not been for a flash of light.You were momentary blind so was the dizzying menace, you...you were carried somehow during this confusion. The heavy steps of that thing grew heavier, closer, closer....Then it disappeared.You woke up in a strange cell, the bleeding and the rupture were gone, the pain was almost non existent. Four things piqued your intrest in this damp cell:A portal of sorts at one of the dark corner. It was seemingly the only way out of here due to rubble and debris blocking the exit. Most importantly, you found a leather outfit, a mask and a dagger of older design. Could it be? Another Shadow of Yerim in these depths?As you were about to put on the mask, it didn't fit you at all. The reason was clear and simple; you nose, lips, cheeks and ear....they were all back. You...you have a face once more. An identity...>Mutilate your face, cut off your ears. there is no self for any shadow of Yerim. Don the mask.>You, you will keep your face for the time being. All souls in Synn are damned, never to reach the surface. They shouldnt know of your true identity. Abandon the mask.

>>3335834>>3335840>>3335945This face is not yours, it is a liability, an Blatant offence. One by one, you got rid of them all. You sighed out of relief. This is a good pain. You have found a Yellow Shadow MaskYou have found a worn out leather armourYou have found a worn out leather leggingsYou have found a Yellow Shadow dagger With no other option available, you have stepped into the portal, ready to face whatever lied ahead.__________________________________ Sanctuary (Level 0) __________________________________Thankfully nothing hostile awaits you at the other end, you were inside a crumbling ruin. A place of worship perhaps in a forgotten era claimed by dust and cobwebs. A horrid hunger has assailed your stomach the moment you stepped out of the portal, the brand of Synn started to pulsate bending you to the rules of this place. Your mind was also plagued by inexplicable fear . The doings of the brand no doubt. You retained your posture and continued to examine the area.The place was woefully dark as well. You had to squint to see the corpses littered on the stone floor. More than a dozen, all were swiftly dismembered. The only torch lit in the vicinity was close to a small stone door , its details were hidden in the flickering shadows. You know this sort of armour too well. A knight of Mondee sat on top of a boulder probably praying to some god. The fool. You were however alarmed by her greatsword. She could put up a fight if she had to.>Explore your surroundings [VERY IMPORTANT: describe which directions and how many steps if necessary, best if you pinned it on the map itself]>Approach the nameless knight, cautiously.>Attack the nameless knight.

>>3335989Darkness grew the more you moved away from the torch. A sweet scent ahead has made your mouth waters, upon closer inspection, It was some sort of a coloured mushroom with its large cap folding on itself. It has flared the cap outwards as you were within an arm's reach exposing vibrant juicy sacs hidden under the cap.Every fabric of your existence wanted to savor this riveting delicacy, that was until an asserting voice stopped you from behind "It would be a shame for you die so swiftly from the alluring charms of the Wingless Palata especially after surviving the Warden ." "..." You drew your blade, anticipating the worst from the knight whom had an orb of light above her head which in turn has forced the mushroom to burrow underground "I have no qualms with you , shadow. What sinful acts you have committed in the surface are not my concern." The woman shrugged it off " I am relieved in fact to see another fellow man who could walk straight with his insides and sanity intact. ">Lower your blade.

It is but lies, fabricated lies to give us the branded a glimmer of hope..." She too had a brand of Synn on the right palm of her hand "I'll spent the rest of my miserable life guiding fools like you below.""..." "Now, now, i am really content of my role. I have seen many come and go, never to return. The brand will slowly eat with body and mind. Another body or twisted beast you might stumble upon in the future, i say!" She laughed while you retained your same soulless expressions "Do you have a name, Shadow? Mine is Ser Lillian .""...""Yes, I reckon you are an eastern assassin sworn to silence and all that hogwash but can you please utter something? My name for an example?">I am a Shadow>No>Ser Lillian>...>Write in

>>3336519>>3336529>>3336530The knight sighed in frustration " I'll take it." The light orb above her head began to fade, She had to recast it again with a snap of her finger. "Silent Shadow, I bid you welcome in our squalid home. The safest place there is in Syn. Let me show you the way around..." She extended her arms sarcastically. Truly, a kingdom of dirt before you.Your first stop was the stone door, sealed shut. It had coils of three eyed snakes all over it "Believe it or not. The upper layers of Synn used to be occupied by dark pilgrims seeking some of the old gods buried in the depth. They were purged alongside most of the old gods in during the new order ."Yes, who doesn't know the new order? the era where man took control of the reigns of history, all lead by Helderan the goddess of absolute. "This door remained closed until another made it here in sanctuary. The Watcher dares not to touch her. She's...you'll see."You walked alongside her to another torch barely shedding light on a lone path partially entombed by ruin. Blood and filth ran as one alongside a horrible stench. The knight was at unease , hers words were shriveled and broken "Beyond this path lies the Warden...I..you are too weak to consider facing him one on one. I..."There was silence, painful one. Her eyes were fixed on the uneven floor "Find some solace in his unholy girth. The bastard is mighty thick to pose any threat outside of his bloody domain. You are safe here.">Ask Ser Lillian a question>Remain silent, Walk alongside her.>Go to said path, you will slaughter this abomination for what he had done to you.>write>Remain silent

>>3336761>Go to said path, you will slaughter this abomination for what he had done to you.
>>3337136>>3337144"Wait!" Ser Lillian stopped you, her tired eyes were strangely brimmed with concern "You will succumb to either hunger or fear . Capable as you may be, the laws of Synn differ from the surface. You have no light source, darkness will consume you. " She paused for a moment staring at the path of mire "Patience, Shadow. There is much to see here in sanctuary. I hate to see you claimed by recklessness and arrogance."Your stomach growled in response. Should you listen to her words? >Yes, regrettably, your current knowledge of your environment is not sufficient.>No, you shall triumph above all. Her words means nothing.
>>3338960>Yes, regrettably, your current knowledge of your environment is not sufficient.
>>3338960>>Yes, regrettably, your current knowledge of your environment is not sufficient.
>>3338972>>3339023"Come on, then." Together, you walked towards a portion of a crumbling tower seemingly out of place, it was coiled with black snakes, all of them were oozing thick black substance. " The Tower of Arltria . It showed up here one day. Don't get too close to the snakes, they can bite."This puzzling tower had a giant door of ivory, it was more of a giant slab with ten round keyholes in them. The snakes surrounding the door had golden gleaming hides. They were more reactive and protective compared to their kin. Best not to tangle with them right now."Here lies The Muse . Be cautious with your words...if you chose to utter any. You will need her in your journey below."You could see why, this Muse was a naked woman with snakes for hair inside a floating mirror surrounded by charred corpses and snakes (from the tower itself). "Is that a man i see? For once, you proved useful."Ser Lillian rolled her eyes as this Muse laughed haughtily "How long has it been? The blubbery pig leaves none for me, none! ""...""Oooh, don't be shy , you! You seek to strengthen yourself . All do, how else could you reache the darkest depth of this place? ho ho ho!" Suddenly she pressed herself against the glass, black fog escaping her mouth as she licked the mirror seductively " Before that, i demand a single tribute...Stand bare before me for i too have needs of my own.">Ask The Muse a question>Fully undress>Take off your mask>Refuse to do her biddings, remain silent>Write in

Do what you do best, slaughter them to better yourself. Don't you dare and bring them to that insolent vermin who...uses them in his so called recipes! Bah! I'll burn this heap if i have to!"You didn't know who she was referring to. Pillars of black fire rose from the floor around the mirror. Ser Lillian had to calm her down a bit "I'll explain later." She whispered.You had one more question to ask though the muse's flaring temper proved to be difficult to approach " Who you are?"She had to be somewhat related to either the sanctuary itself or this tower. That is your assumption at least " My past is enshrouded in dark clouds. A god breathed life into me , that is certain for a humiliating purpose. Birthing Snakes, vile, prowling , ravenous... have no remorse in murdering my children. It is their fault being so weak and pathetic. Mind the feathered ones , Their death brings the worst of my god." The mirror was starting to get more dull "Off you go...I hate to miss my beauty sleep. Come back when you have an egg or a seed." with that said, the mirror turned completely black. "So you can talk, huh? I thought your band of assassins cut your tongue.""I am a man of few words." Perhaps she will get the message. You have your doubts.Your next stop was another locked stone door of simpler design "This was once the direct way to the depth below. I had to lock it to halt a madman from breaking into the sanctuary." She pressed her ear against the wall gesturing you to do the same " Do you hear that?"You heard heavy breathing combined with a slurping sound " He has struck a deal with B'aholath, she had cursed him after he attempted to seed her. The fool. I lost the keys myself, can you pick that lock ?"You shook your head." There is another way below but if we managed to open this door. I will stand by your side against him. You have my word, he is not to be trifled with..."Just up ahead was a giant stone golem stirring an equally sized pot. He had all sorts of ingredients around him, the large ladle he stirred food with was serrated on the sides. On his right side were his club and various hooks. Next to him was a small child doing what she could to help him. Her humming stopped as she laid her eyes on you quickly scurrying back to the giant golem. She was rightfully scarred of you."This is Garr and Ritual Child Buresé. " She introduced them to you "She is the one wh-""Hmm? Who are you ? I cook.

>>3339402>>3339404It took her a while to convince him that you mean no harm (for the moment). He fixes his soulless gaze on you "Friend?"You nodded to get this over with " I help friend. Anytime. Be well."

"I go down big hole to hunt and forage. You bring me shinies . You buy food, services and recipes." You wonder how a thing of his size can go anywhere. He is at least thrice as big as the warden."Shinies? Does he mean coins?""Yes, we use coins here just like the surface. They are for the occasional Automatons who are only allowed to 'trade' with the Denizens of Synn. There are few functioning stations where you can utilize their services. The closest one is on the third floor ." She stated. "No Shinies?" You shook your head "Shame. Come with Shinies, friend." He was still eyeing every single movement of yours as he kept stirring his pot. Buresé is still hiding from your sight. This has the be the one the knight about, she might look and act innocence but there is something sinister brewing inside her tiny shell.

The stone words coming out of your mouth are an unholy amalgamation of clicks, short growls and other guttural sounds.Ser Lillian was rightfully puzzled, you had little time to explain this daunting process. Your words were heeded by hundreds of these things, you couldn't see them but you could hear them crying in unison " Master! Master! You beckoned us! We are so lonely. Let us help you , glorious Master! Do you love us?" The wall before was split open, the stone blocks were literally eaten to nothing. A secret room."I have never this before, Shadow. " The woman was in awe. It was soon to dissipate due to the unbearable stench inside. The room had strings of sickly flesh all over it. A man and a woman, both entwined together on a stone bed in a literal sense; you could tell which is which by their genitals which remained intact during this abominable fusion. Their glass eyes were fixed upon a shrine bearing a symbol of a seven fingered hand .Barring that, there was a small chest to the right which had a growing mass of flesh over it and an ominous lever to the left with a patch of skin wrapped around the handle. The words ' DONT DONT DONT DONT DONT...' were written on it.>Speak to the parasites, still lingering around [Stone Speech,-20 Soul, specify ]>Ask Ser Lillian what to do>Leave the room as it is>Pull the lever>Open the chest>Pray to this unknown shrine>Write in

Old master was evil, he made me do bad things. Girl saved me, Girl taught me how to be good, to cook. Happy."Garr proceeded to coat one of the gigantic feathers with a sparkling resin which began to solidify in a mere moments. The golem began to reshape it with his delicate fingers forming a large cleaver "Here, Chop-Chop will help friend." You have been given a weapon: Golden Harpy Cleaver (150-200 damage) Once you have gotten hold of said weapon, you fell down with it on the floor; it was astronomically heavy requiring immense strength to wield it properly.

Ser Lillian checked her blade for any smudge of blood "We have plenty of these in Synn. Some are dead, others continue to scheme in their crypts. There was a Historian named Galidako who wanted to fully document all of old gods. You can try and look for him...or his corpse. Why are you asking?""..." Stating your intent might compromise your mission. You remained silent waiting for the giant oaf to finish preparing the harpy.Hours later, The whole sanctuary had a most divine smell. Once Garr has rang a small bell, Both the little girl and the knight approached the stone golem."Thank you , Mister Garr!" The Cook lowered his stone forehead for an innocent kiss "Little girl happy. I happy."Roasted Golden flesh coated with a butter of sorts with a circle of sauteed vegetables and mushrooms. The plate was bigger than the child's head. Next up was the knight who were treated equally , she bowed instead "Iron girl happy, I help anytime."You stepped in afterwards reaching for an empty plate when his hand formed a wall around his tableware "Friend, Give Shiny first. fifty shiny for harpy "Bastard!

Like a drizzling chameleon , the colour of his attire continues to change colours in a flash. Without a single thought, you charged with your blades primed for his neck. *SHINK* "WHOA, WATCH IT, HOHO!" *SHLANCK "TOO SLOW, HEHEHE." Every single slash and swipe cut through thin air, his body continues to unnaturally bend away from your daggers. "You are a bad Joke, Teehee.

He didn't seem to retaliate though "Satisfied? You my friend have A LOT of anger and frustration. You'll die young an-" "Shut up." You went for his neck when he let his guard down. The Jester squeezed his neck out of your iron gasp, his flattened head returned to normal a moment later "I have terrible, terrible news for you: I can not die. It is a cruel joke from my god but hey, what can i do about it? Heheheh. Damn silly me! You don't even know my name do you ?" "..." "I am Jester Deoih, a not-so-loyal servant for my master. Gommurah , the trickster old god. Here is a trivia for you, did you know that he is the only god who bargained with the hellbablab or whatever her name is? He willingly chose to go to Synn." The Jester wrapped his arm around you "I, My Grumpy friend, i am a walking treasure filled with whatever your heart desire....at a cost. A bargain, A game of chance! Hohoho, do you trust your luck?" He leaped in the air dancing and prancing like the fool he is "Coins! Coins and Caps! Or... Blood! Blood and caps!" He threw five crackers on the floor each spawning a different Jester " Try your luck, you won't regret it, Isn't that right, Margret?"

Then suddenly, a lifeless grasp reaches for your hands.You back away in an instant watching the corpse coming back to life, the silent demonic eyes of her hair flared wide open absorbing all of the blood nearby. For a single minute, stood before you a woman of unparalleled beauty, soft skin, black wavery hair, fresh plump lips, fingers delicate as a flower....Then it all faded back. The hair is grey. the skin is pale with shadows of pulsating black veins, the lips are dried and crackled, a shadow of her former self. "P...please, whoever you...are. Touch this desolate flesh..." The chained woman begged, trembling. She extended her arm to your general direction, black sand falling from her mouth with every word.>Touch her hands>Leave the living corpse alone and ____ >>3362861 (You)>Unchain the living corpse, cut the decades/centuries old strands>Attack the living corpse>Write in (recommended)
>>3363086>Touch her hands
Might be time to start a new thread. This one got permasaged, not many people are seeing the updates.
>>3363178>Eye Lantern (Rancid) "Ahh...aaah...ah.." Some strands of her hair have retained their youthful colours. " Thank you stranger..." She inhaled and exhaled in a slow fashion reveling in this mundane action before trying to stand up but her legs snapped like a twig . Her black bones sank back to their place. The shredded skin unwound itself as if nothing has happened. "I have nothing to offer you...except my flesh." She recoiled from her statement "No! Mine is cursed with...It will mend your body but it eat your from the inside. A gnawing corruption. I..." black tears starts to trickle from her gouged orbs "I am a ...mistake. One that should not exist. How foolish i am to yearn for this accursed life, this accursed desire." "..." "I beg of you. S-Stay away from me . I have no place among men or gods. Such is my fate, my to suffer till the end of time. Undying and Unforgiving.

>>3363266>it eats> fate, to suffer till the end of times, Undying and Unforgiven >>3363183eh, next time maybe. too late for a new thread
>>3363266>>Say something to the living corpse (specify)Ask her who imprisoned her and what she knows about this place
>>3363266>>Say something to the living corpse (specify)Ask her about the corruption
>>3363438>>3364551well, thats the end of this thread. feedback time.did you enjoyed my usual sloppy mess? was i too edgy/immature or some such ? what did you like/hat about Synn and what did you want to see?this was intended to be a one shot but if there is more appeal i might go for another thread or until we are die
>>3364905>did you enjoyed my usual sloppy mess? I came here from /qwg/ near the end and thought it was fun. >was i too edgy/immature or some such? Nah, I enjoy grimdark more than anime/harem quests. >what did you like/hat about Synn and what did you want to see? The worldbuilding was fine. There were some grammar/punctuation errors but I can overlook those. The maps were a little confusing since there was no indication of which symbol meant what. >this was intended to be a one shot but if there is more appeal i might go for another threadI'd say continue if you want to. There are usually fewer players after a thread hits permasage. So a new thread might have more readers.
>>3364936thats what i get for writing too fast, i guess. we'll see what others may have to say
>>3364978You should also post it on /qmg/ and ask for feedback. That's what that general is supposed to be for after all.
>>3364905I loved it.
>>3364905It was great. The choices made logical sense and the atmosphere your writing conveyed brought forth a sense of dread and foreboding
>>3366158>>3365590alright, ill post a new thread tomorrow. if this thread got archived, ill post in qtg>>3365407qmg is a thing now?
