From the person who brought the garbage fire that is AAQ into existence, the less horrible and somewhat original but still pretty bad Colossus Quest, the actually pretty good Construct Necromancer Quest, the continuation of that (A Necromancer Quest), comes...

>Drumroll<

Runic Weapon Quest!

>Fanfare<

Chosen by a combination of Coinflip and Anon at the end of the last quest, actually allowed by me now having free time.

Now, this quest is starting...

>... When we were Forged

>...When we were Found

P.S. I've actually taken on a non-quest related name so I don't have to run that preamble at the top of every thread.

>... When we were Forged

So...

Considering the lack of votes, should I just get on with it? I will in about 20 minutes.

Just FYI, I have the policy that I'll only take a vote when one choice has at least 3 votes. It's not the first to 3 wins, It's just that it's hit sudden death after an hour.


Now, We're being forged. But what are being made into?

The noise repeats, and you feel hot, uncomfortably so. then a loud noise, some cold, and the coming of the void from whence you came.

You awaken to see...

"...Laddie?"

"Yes", you respond.

"HAHAHA! I've done it! I've made a sentient weapon! but one last thing..."

He leaves and brings back a bound hog

"Can Yeh Kill?"

He picks you up, at which point you notice that as a weapon, you are rather lacking, really just a dull spike on a handle barely a handspan long.

He stabs you into the hog's neck and you feel... something... flow into you.

"And can yeh forge yerself?"

You have gained an power point! You can use them to upgrade the stats below

You reshape your point, wanting to not have to work at it as hard to peirce flesh.

The man holds you up to his face
"It works... IT WORKS! BY MORIDIN, IT WORKS!"

You see another, shorter, stockier man walk in
"THE FOOK ARE YEH DOING JEFFERY?!?!
WHY"S THERE A DEAD HOG?!?! WHAT ARE YEH HOLDING?!?!"

"A WEAPON THAT FECKING FORGES ITSELF JERRY!!!"

"Hello!" You direct at Jerry.

"WHY THE FOOK DID YEH MAKE IT SO SHITTY JEFFERY?!?!"

"SO IT CAN MAKE ITSELF BETTER JERRY!!!"

"THEN LET'S GO KILL THEM FOOKING GOBLINS THEN YA BASTARD, WE NEED TO MAKE IT GET BETTER!!!"

"LET'S FECKING GO THEN JERRY!"

Your wielder, Jeffery goes and strips off his robes and puts on a suit of chainmail armor.

"Let's go then... whatever the feck your name is."

THE THREE STOOGES BAYBEEE
>>
>>3542478
There's already a third stooge
>>
Wait, no, we need a weapon's name.
>>
>>3542486
4TH STOOGE THEN
and I'm still for the jeffery/jerry sound-a-like names
>>
>>3542498
Ragnarok, then. Pay homage to Final Fantasy.
>>
>>3542504
That's a bit foreboding.
>>
>>3542486
Well then I don't see the point in getting a name if we only know the names of two people. Plus pig and weapon.
>>
>>3542461
>>3542471
>>3542472
>>3542475
>>3542476
>>3542478
>>3542486
>>3542494
>>3542504
So, we have Bradley for our proper name.

Do we want a title or, as this post says
>>3542498
a "Weapon's name"?

People call the Sword of Doom the "Sword of Doom" instead of Harold.
>>
>>3542513
A runic weapon's *supposed* to be foreboding.
>>
>>3542551
Any name is fine with me, if we're going with a weapon name how about Ultima Weapon?
>>
Okay, I'm falling Asleep. I'll be back at some point later.
>>
>>3542551
"My name is Hrunting, but friends call me Bradley".
>>
I took a nap. I'm back now.

So, for our "informal'' name, we have Bradley, and for our "formal" name, We have either Hrunting or Ragnarok. Anyonne want to take a vote?

>Hrunting

>Ragnarok
>>
>>3543195
>Ragnarok
>>
>>3543195
>Hrunting
>>
Just an FYI, I checked and Hrunting is the sword that Beowulf used to stab Grendel's mom, and Ragnarok is the Norse End of the Gods.
>>
>>3543195
>>Hrunting
>>
Thirding
>Hrunting
>>
>>3543333
I"m just putting out the facts for people who might not have known the meaning. Hrunting is going to be the name unless you change your choice about 16 minutes ago.
>>
>>3543195
>Ragnarok
More recognizable to me and sounds like a generic fantasy something or another. Hrunting sounds like something from a well thought out fictonal language ala tolkein
>>
>>3543195

>>3543254
>>3543258
>>3543287
>>3543343
>>3543368
"Hrunting"
You say after some consideration.

"That's an Old name. Old Orcish. A fine name."

>Timeskip or ask Jeffery some questions? Post said questions if so.

>>3543373
I'll take that as a time skip unless there are objections.

>>3543412
You and Jeffery and Jerry Come across what they were looking for, A small goblin encampment. About 20 in total, only 5 of which look to be properly trained.

>What do you do? or rather, ask Jeffery to do?
>>
Goodnight to all.
>>
>>3543436
>These goblins, what makes them so threatening besides their number? They are short like you, but not as strong, and seem to be strangely colored.
>>
>>3543746
"They get bigger. Not just that, but 5 of those are obviously from a more established warren, looks like they're well trained, 4 with spear and shield. The 5th is most likely some kind of specialist and most likely in charge of this whole group. the other 15 are locals they've rounded up to bring back to the warren or help with raiding or scouting."
>>
>>3543772
>I see
Obviously this is worth committing to memory because we are babby weapon and don't know shit. Papa Jeffery knows best.
>>
Any more questions?
>>
>>3543807
>where are we, anyways? How did I come about, and why? What is my purpose?
>>
>>3543820
"The mountain temple of Moridin, or ootside it rather. Yeh came about because I was drunk and in a strange mood. Yer perpose is to kill, and get better at it. Specifically the enemies of Moridin, and at my discretion."
>>
By the way, If People want me to continue to the combat, Just link a post saying time skip to >>3543436
And I will get on with it.
>>
>>3543436
Let's see what they have in the way of weapons.

Jeffery takes 2 steps forward with a mighty battle cry, and take a crossbow bolt in the chest from the leader, who appears to have been a marksgoblin. You hear Jerry yell a mightier cry and charge forth, taking goblins to the ground with his hammer left and right.

Roll d100s to see if Jerry suffers the same fate.

From what you can see, Jerry brought a large shield and isn't having any of the Marksgoblin's shit. He lays low all of the local goblins, before coming to the Warren goblins.

You watch in fascination as Jerry bashes and smashes his way to the goblin that laid his brother low, and does so to them in turn.

Jerry wordlessly puts up his hammer and shield and puts Jeffery over his shoulder, saying
"Got to get ye to Jimmy, Got to get yeh to Jimmy."

>He's leaving you behind. Get his attention or just... Lay there?

Do we have any sort of flashy powers to get his attention ?
>>
>>3544657
Just wait patiently. Something will happen eventually
>>
>>3544681
No, If a 1 and 8 hadn't been rolled you would have gotten some points to spend from killing goblins, but Jeffery is currently mortally wounded from a bolt to the chest.
>>
>>3544657

>>3544677
>>3544679

You caused that to happen to Jeffery. You deserve to be left behind, worthless as you are. You can't even kill shit, and that's what you were made to do.

A scant hour later, you see a half naked, heavily bandaged Jeffery come crashing through the bushes, pick you up, and run back to the temple with you, running into Jerry and another, even shorter, stockier, more bearded man that you assume is Jimmy wearing robes.

Perfect
>>
>>3547134

>>3547142
>>3547222
I assume that this means we are good

After 5 days, you make some changes. Many changes in fact. Your haft lengthens, making sure that you can't be effective as short as you were. You get heavier, usually helpful in adding weight to a strike. You get sharper, up to a level acceptable on a well-used knife. The swelling, warm feeling that came up inside of you earlier swelled ever further. And your spike? Now a serrated blade. The serrations might get caught on things, but that's surely only useful for more damage, right? you leave some small bit of the essence that you used to upgrade yourself.

Jeffery walks in, giving a start at your improved state.

"I TOLD YOU IT WOULD WORK JERRY!!"

"IT HASN"T CHANGED IN TH- oh it actually has."

"Well, You'll get some more use then Hrunting, we've got some blasphemers incoming."

Jeffery grabs you, going and putting on a suit of chainmail again.

Jeffery walks outside, between Jerry and Jimmy, the latter of which has a sledgehammer and is still wearing his robes.

You look out and see...

They send an emissary,one bearing a message that equates to, from what you understand, "Fuck off or get stabbed you have one week"

The brothers are not going to fuck off and are going to prepare for war. The closest clan isn't going to be able to make it in a week, but the brothers are going to barricade the doors, and...

I think we should go for a holy 2-handed axe/halberd build.

> New part - 1 (axe head)

>Mass x2

What does Forge Fire do?
>>
>>3547793
Sharpness lvl 4 (12?)
Head lenght (16)
Haft (20)
Axe head (21)

Still very light, but actually sharp and with a reach.

>>3547800
Magic can wait until we are actually a halberd and not just a pointy stick.
Also I think the "holy magic" branch just unlocks new spells that we actually have to buy in a second purchase, that's how it worked for smite didn't it?
>>
>>3547821
You got smite for free, it cost one point to use, and now it costs none.
>>
>>3547820
It causes a fire of equivalent heat to that of a forge to appear for up to 5 seconds at a time. Longer duration with more levels in magic.
>>
I really wanted to be a spear like Gungnir, but it seems like the others want to be axes for our dorfbros.

>>3547821
Can't be a proper axe without more Mass.
>>
>>3547836
Well, you could just be so sharp that you cut through everything with no resistance.
>>
>>3547821
Voting for this. Need the axe head to cleave through the groups of goblins we'll be fighting, cleaving will in turn need sharpness. Haft is also mandatory seeing how getting too close too the giant horde of goblins would probably end up killing the dwarves.
>>
>>3547836
That's true, but being a polearm with a serrated head we need an alternative to not get stuck when there's multiple enemies, and while we might be too light for decent chopping we can still go for sweeps with an axe head.

Going full Gungnir is fine too, so I can retract the vote for the axe head in case of majority.
>>
>>3547821
It may be actually a better idea to switch the head lenght for mass, and we could get Forge fire level 2 too if read it right.

Long boi or magic halberd with an actual weight behind it?
>>
>>3547856
Getting magic is done by upgrading the category itself.
>>
>>3547864
Nevermind then.
It's just a question of lenght versus girt- I mean weight.
>>
>>3547793
>Sharpness(x3)

Save the rest for fire magic. There's a weapon that's a sword on a stick, Power and Reach together, Perfect for a dwarf.
>>
>>3547793
What are the formulas for cost? Is it the next level costs one more than the previous?
>>
>>3548077
Costs double. This way, you(your wielder) can't just prance through enemy lines.
>>
>>3547793
>>3548084
If that's the case I'm going to vote for the next level of sharpness, an extra inch on the blade up to 4 inches and 3 more pounds in Mass. That should round it out to an even 20 points in cost.

Would it be possible to spend the point on an engraved grip for more purchase for Jerry's hands?
>>

The extra point left, I mean.

Of the three Brothers, Jimmy did the least work. oh, it was still important, magically hurling darts of iron about, and braining anybody who came too close was most of what he did, as well as healing Jerry and Jeffery as necessary. Jerry laid about him with his hammer, caving and cracking the bones and pulping the skulls of all he walked amongst.

But Jeffery and you, they were the Mightiest on the field as of then. Glowing with searing holy fire, you drank deep of the power of dozens of goblin blasphemers, gutting them, ripping them, impaling them. You and Jeffery, Half Dwarven Hero Were an onslaught of pain and misery to the goblins, untouchable and unstoppable, breaking lines and slaying indiscriminately.

Only the Hobgoblins gave Jeffery pause, being good enough to slow your merciless advance. The Brothers fight their way to the commander, a Bugbear of prodigious size, whom challenges Jeffery to a duel in hopes of not getting in a 3-1 fight.

(Returning to the hand of the wielder should we wish it. Second level would be guiding ourselves midflight slightly. Third level is additional Force Damage to attacks with us. Fourth level is Knockback added to attacks, and additional special attacks. Fifth level is self motive abilities, or being able to fly by our own will.[5/10/20/40/80])

I'm going to be honest, force damage using Telekinesis would not be a level 3 thing, and knockback would be actively harmful.
>>
>>3553422
Nice, but let's get a couple more lbs in there. We don't want to be just a glorified magical dart.
>>
>>3553929
you are here!!!
>>
>>3553244
The 6 was a typo.
>>
>>3553929
Adding regular damage would probably make more sense, yeah. But knockback also generally knocking someone over. Perfect for when someone is in melee range and you need them to not be.
All of that said, If Force damage sounds more like a 4th LVL thing then that would be preferable. If it's something you consider much higher level then w/e, it's not the end of the world.
>>
>>3554138
When I hear "knockback" I hear "boot out of attack range". And force damage is more arcane magic than simple abilities. you would need to break into an entirely new area of expertise, more than just a new ability, for proper force damage.
>>
>>3554150
Knockback is very useful for controlling combat. Imagine throwing someone into their allies, or a wall of spikes, or off a cliff. Slamming them onto the ground with it is also an option, leaving them open to melee. We also have an ability before it that makes ranged combat more viable, so keeping them distant is fine.
I should specify that I don't mean that EVERY attack should have Knockback. Sometimes you really just want to stab someone repeatedly. As such, a cooldown or cost until a higher level is reached can be implemented if you deem freely turning it on and off to be OP.
>>
>>3554299
Yeah, knockback is not something you get passively like that, especially if you can control it.
>>
>>3554313
So with the changes mentioned above the list is GM approved? Or is there more to change before it's balanced?
We might want the ability to re-shape at some point in the future too. But that's definitely something that should wait until we have enough TO re-shape and have it be worth while. Not much point in being able to bend or shrink if we can't reach anything normally.
>>
>>3554381
How it goes is you give me the ability, and I do shit with it until I deem it balanced. the order of abilities and abilities you get for kinesis is out of whack in my opinion.
>>
>>3554396
Well, whatever order and actual abilities are up to you in the end. I was merely explaining why I thought such would be wanted. I leave the decisions to you, and stand by my point allocation regardless.

1.Goodnight

2. This quest is going to be a one shot. I asked some anons what quest they would like to see next, and got 2 recommendations.

>>
>>3555132
This does not in any way mean that I am not going to see the thread through, I might not be having as much fun as I'd like, but I certainly won't ruin it for the Anons that participate in this quest.
>>
>>3555138
I totally get you dude, if you're not enjoying yourself enough to keep it going, then it'd just drag on and lose the spark that it started with. I'm DMing IRL and if it wasn't something I enjoy creating then it would be a slog, but I'd do it because the group makes it enjoyable. When you have something that lights the fire though... that's where you start to feel good about what you're doing. Grav-train highsts on a 5g world, Daemon infested backwaters, Impossibly large megastructures in space and their dark underbelly.
Let your creativity shine through man, I look forward to it. You're better at taking abstracts and making them a solid, balanced, thing to play with btw. I just re-skin something that exists when I don't have a step-by-step on making something new.
Sorry for the word wall, I'm either wordy or start speaking/typing in prose when tired. Good night!

Could you state your actions then?
>>
>>3558950
Prepere consumable items they have and find a good choke point that prevents flanking, smoking out, burning down, or other hazards. Otherwise, just psyche ourselves up.
>>
>>3559164
Wait in the door then?
>>
>>3559172
Yes.
>>
I know I said I would see the thread through here
>>3555138
but it turns out that by this point the quest is a corpse that I exhume every couple of hours.

If anyone wants to see this now boring thread through, vote N. If you want me to put this tottering cadaver of a quest down and write an appropriate ending(and choose between the next 2 3 quest ideas I have.)

>Y/N?
>>
>>3559356
Y then
>>
>>3559356
N
The concept of playing as a sentient weapon that upgrades itself is cool to me.
>>
>>3559356
Y, I guess.
>>
I'll leave
>>3559356
till later for me to come to my decision.
>>
>>3559503
or rather, decide when the anons have consensus.
>>
>>3559587
when to cut off the vote at least.
>>
>>3559356
im fine with either. But i am leaning towards yes
>>
>>3559356
>Y
>>
>>3559356

>>3559379
>>3559388
>>3559392
>>3559716
>>3559896
Y then.

Now, you have 2 3 choices.

>Undying King Quest
You are a king of the northernmost reaches of the world, who (Through means to be determined in character creation) is now both immortal (to a degree) and ruling the ruins of the former kingdom. You are found, and rule once more.

>Guardian Quest
You are a Guardian. You guard something important. This and your capabilities are to be determined in character creation.

>Hollow Knight Quest
I've always loved Hollow Knight, and in this one, you play as a failed vessel, starting as you wake up from being booted into the Abyss, thankfully not having been hit as hard as your siblings on the way down.

>>3560837
>Undying King Quest
Guardian quest kinda has a nebulous end goal from the sounds of it, which would probably end up like this quest where people drop out due to a lack of direction.
Undying King quest sounds like it has an end goal. Conquer the world and rule eternal. Very definite point where the story ends.
Or I'm pulling all of that out of my ass. One of the two.
>>
>>3560837
>Undying King Quest
Hollow Knight was good though.
>>
>>3561071
You gotta remember, Your goals in Guardian Quest are for you to figure after you create your character. Wouldn't make sense to want to do (x) when your character wants to do (y)
>>
>>3561319
I figured, but I just like the idea of becoming the absolute ruler of everything forever. Hivemind end when?
>>
>>3561365
Probably never. You would need to pull off some right bullshit to actually make it happen, much less sustainably or without resistance.
>>
>>3560837

>>3561071
>>3561134
I'll take it to be option 1. It'll be up tomorrow.
>>
>>3561618
Hopefully you won't bail on this one too.
>>
>>3557242
And so, the story of the Three Brothers comes to an end, Not at the cold hands of death, but with life and joy. The Goblins were turned back, for the clans had arrived. and the spear, Hrunting, went on into legend, eventually making its way into the hands of the dwarvish king. And then into his artifact pile.
>>
>>3560837
undying king or the hollow knight one. Im fine with either and they will be the ones ill be looking out for normally anyway.
