Last time we finally cleared the dungeon, found a sealed book, collapsed from pain on the way home, explored our dreams again, and began to learn more about our aura.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/784468/>Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon+Mystery+Dungeon%2C+Luka>Discord: https://discord.gg/xM2aCYq>Twitter for quest: https://twitter.com/QuestMoonMan>Current Party and Items: https://docs.google.com/document/d/145VmH99rq7JgSVyDqYc9fJNKGi4g1ftJhYsffo-6i1M/edit?usp=sharingSession may start early if there is 3 or so people that want to start early and I haven’t died by nap. Otherwise we will start at 5ish.
Reporting in, Alice is best girl, Luka will be a splendid hero.
I'm down to start our ghost /ss/ quest early
>>811858Sorry currently napping
I did write this already so I'll let you fags make this choice and start the actual quest in an hour or so.Your dreamless sleep is rudely interrupted as an awful smell enters your nose, sputtering and desperately covering your nose you shoot straight awake to be greeted by Alice, who promptly attaches herself to your person. She is quickly joined by Faye taking up one of your arms, and you end up noticing she is currently wearing your weather scarf along with your badge attached to it. Which currently explains why you feel a literal chill down your spine as she hugs you. The second mystery being the missing bag that you normally carry is currently in the corner of the room. So they really did go out to find you some smelling salts to wake you from your supposed coma. It might be prudent to mention that you woke up just fine a bit ago, but they deserve to know. Although you don’t particularly want to ruin the moment and knowing how Alice can be sometimes… She might not have the most favorable reaction.>Pat head>Tell them you woke up earlier>Write in
>>811869>Tell them you woke up earlierI appreciate the trouble you guys went through to get those for me, pat Alice's head
>>811869Sleep well and pat heads you lazy shit
Awake and working
>>811869>Session 1 startDeciding to just let it be, you let the girls get comfortable attached to you instead of ruining their moment of victory. With your free arm you silently pat Alice’s head. You don’t know how long this goes on for, but you think Alice has fallen asleep. The mission must have taken a lot out of her. Faye herself looks tired, but is content to stay in her spot on your arm. Honestly you yourself are still a bit tired after having your sleep interrupted by those smelling salts and the adrenaline is wearing off.>Fall asleep>Try and stay awake
>>812053>Fall asleepCuddly slumber party time!
>>812053You decide to just let this happen, and begin to close your eyes and lay your head down once more. You don’t know what time it is but with how tired Alice is it’s probably late. You return to your dreamless sleep, stuck between hot and cold of your partners… maybe you should get that scarf back when you wake up.After a restful night, you and your partners awake well rested and ready for a new day for adventure!“What do you mean we can’t go on an exploration yet!?” was your dejected response to the most recent turn of events.Alice’s mom, the bearer of said bad news just looked at you somewhat annoyed before explaining it to you once more as if… well as you are a small child. “We want to keep an eye on you to make sure you don’t collapse again, what if that had happened in a dungeon? What then?” You have no response as she continues to lecture you like she would her own child.“But-“ “No” “Can you just-“ “No, you and team Poll for that matter are both staying in town and that is final.”You were about to make another remark but quickly retreated seeing the familiar look in her eye as she brought out her stick. You instinctively flinch away and just decide that this battle was a draw. Well now what is your team to do if you can’t explore?>Write in (continue to try and find the worth of the gold thorn, continue practice with aura, bring unknown and sealed books to library, train in other ways with Alice and Faye, anything really as long as it is in town or the guild.)
Practice aura techniques
>>812131>bring unknown and sealed books to library
we should look into the golden thorn, we need some dosh
>>812171Switching to aura training
Gonna grab some food while you fags choose what to do, also you can choose to do more than one thing and don't feel limited to only my suggestions
>>812195Then let's do some training first, followed by taking the books to the library.
>>812205I'll agree to this then
>>812131>Aura practice >Bring books to library.
Back>>812205>>812233What kind of training? Aura training? training with your team mates? Faye's gentleman training?
>>812241Faye's training is long overdue.
>>812241Gentleman training with best girl
>>812241I was thinking aura training, but this >>812252 is good too assuming best girl is Arisu
>>812262Nevermind, gentleman training is with Faye. But that's good too, since we need to stop acting like a wimpy brat.
>>812131Before any decision can even be made, Faye decides now would be the perfect time to begin your “gentleman training”. She apparently had brought books with her on her way from her original home on manners and etiquette, supposedly they were human books on the subject that she held in high regards. She seemed to hold humans on some kind of pedestal from what was probably many moons of reading their literature if that is all the Library from the mansion she could get. Faye firmly believed them to be some sort of beacon of civility that rose above their instincts in ways Pokemon of today are barely scraping. Although for some reason you didn’t believe all were like that you decide to let her continue. She quickly began thrusting quotes from the books upon you, skipping to in fro the pages and passages with no rhyme or reason, just seeming to enjoy being able to talk about it. This teaching style left you somewhat dazed and confused, but you give it your best attempt.>Roll 1d20 to see how well you receive and retain the information
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>812313>Inb4 one>Inb4 we are hit with a confusion effect>Inb4 we punch ourselves >Inb4 we get a 20 for damage
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>812313
Forgot to mention best of 3
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>812313
>>812313While you can't fully understand Faye's... unique teaching style, there is one message that she repeats that you think you understand. "Manners maketh man". You think you figured out what it means from what you've gleaned and you think she is trying to use this first lesson to make you understand why specifically these manners are important. You believe it to mean that your manners are what separate yourself from mindless beast, that they characterize you and make you a more respectable person in the eyes of others, especially those who just met you and those you will not interact with extensively. Your first and few impressions will be extremely important to their outlook of you and those you associate with. You think to Alice, she wants to be guild master and needs to not only be respected, but be surrounded by respectable people as well. You will probably be a major player in the guild if you can get Alice to be the guild master and you'll need to be able to be a beacon under the scrutiny of not only the guild members but everyone who wants to associate with the guild.With a revived constitution you attempt to pay attention to Faye's ramblings trying to gleam whatever you can from it, gaining a skill.>Manners Maketh Man Basic+1 to any rolls with the first time interactioning with people as well as +1 to any composure rolls (i.e. less likely to cry like a bitch or spew spaghetti from every orifice)Soon enough your time is interrupted by Alice coming in, who is immediately set upon by Faye to begin her "lady training" you take this as your cue to leave grabbing the bag and abandoning your partner to this horrible fate.>Head directly to library>Do something else before
>>812441>Bonus to not crying like a bitch or being a spaghettimancer We need this>Head directly to the library.
>>812441>Head directly to library
>>812441You make your way to the library, books in your bag. You were kind of hoping to not have to deal with Xatu again, your last meeting didn’t really sit well with you. Unfortunately, you don’t really know anyone else who could help you with these.“Hello little hero of the story! How are your little friends doing?”“Alice and Faye are-““Not them boy, your OTHER friends!” He interrupts you.“Other friends?”“Ah still haven’t realized you are a fictional character have you my friend. Well regardless, what do you need?”You frown, you’re real. At least you feel real. Ignoring his nonsense you decide to first ask him about…>About the unknown books you collected>About the sealed book you found>Something else… (Write in)
>>812523>Something elseAsk him to stop breaking the fourth wall so much before he disturbs the players too much
>>812546"Nope!" comes his cheery response before you can even ask him anything."But-""Oh not to you friend. I was just talking to our other guests!" He doesn't lose his cheery demeanor at all, in fact he seems even more happy that one of these 'guests' even bothered to acknowledge him.Deciding to ignore his little outburst you try and continue the conversation "Anyway...">Unknown books>Sealed book>Something else...
>>812565>Unknown books>Sealed book
>>812565Fine xatu.>Unknown booksLet's make the unknown, known.
>>812572>>812573He inspects the books "Ahh yes, these look to be somewhat rare. As a non-profit library I can't offer you much in the way of payment for these but I'm sure we can come to some kind of agreement.""What do you mean non-profit? I pay you for books, what happened to that money?"He seems to ignore the question completely "So how about you pick one of the books and I can give it to you for free after I appraise it!""What about actually letting me read the books for free instead...""I would only do that if you would actually return them. Tell me child, what happens to those books after you read them?""I-" What did happen to those books? You don't remember losing them, but any time you try to think of where they go after you read them they just disappear? Now that you think about it you can't even remember a word of those books... Only the skills you got from them..."Anyway let's look into that sealed book of yours!"You didn't ever tell him about the sealed book."Of course you did, now let me see it." He looks intently at the book, at least you think its a book. It is a leather bound book wrapped all the way around, leaving the inside of the book unable to be opened."Hm I'll need to get back on you with this one, but it seems to have had some kind of effect on you has it not?"How did he?"Well regardless its secrets shall be revealed in time. After all nothing escapes my sight."You really think you are starting to hate psychic types...Leaving the library you are in the fairly empty town, sun overhead and everything you planned on doing done. What should you do now?>Write in

>>812621For the rest of the day you begin your journey of self betterment for the guild. Although you don't quite make all your goals, it is a start. You train hard enough to even gain a level.You leveled up to level 16As you finish up your training for the day you make your way back to the guild to regroup and eat dinner. While eating you notice Alice attempting to use utensils? Where did she even get those? Faye seems to be guiding her but it Alice still has trouble without and real way to hold the utensils but she seems determined.Regardless you and your partners make your way back to your rooms... Is what you would say now except they followed you to your room."Don't you guys have your own rooms?""Mom told me that teammates usually live with each other so I decided to move in.""I too have decided to come as well to make sure nothing unsavory occurs."Of course they did.>Let them stay>Insist they stay in their own rooms

>>812733You honestly are too tired to object and just motion the ladies in first. They happily oblige entering yo- our room."Good thing you agreed, I would have had to use my status as future guild master to overrule you." Alice says smugly"Alice, what have I taught you.""I know, I know, remain humble and try not to offend the underlings." she says jokingly.Faye doesn't seem to happy about the last portion but just accepts the answer as close enough.You just collapse your bed of straw, unwilling to really care about your new roommates, all until Alice decides to plop down right on top of you and Faye takes her own place grabbing your arm once again."Shouldn't you guys have brought your own beds?""Nope!" "I am content with this position, thank you."Of course... you honestly are too tired to care, you simply drift off into a dreamless sleep once more, hopefully to deal with this problem in the morning.>Session endNow is the time for any questions, comments, etc.Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon+Mystery+Dungeon%2C+LukaDiscord: https://discord.gg/xM2aCYqTwitter for quest: https://twitter.com/QuestMoonManCurrent Party and Items: https://docs.google.com/document/d/145VmH99rq7JgSVyDqYc9fJNKGi4g1ftJhYsffo-6i1M/edit?usp=sharing
>>812817Thanks for running
>>812817Thanks for running, also Faye is best girl
Session starting soon
>>812817>Session 2 startThe next day was a somewhat awkward awakening, but after getting access to your personal space back, as well as your bag, you are ready for the day. Well besides the weather scarf Faye was still in the possession of along with the rescue badge attached to it. Without it you will feel all the effects of temperature as well as weather, and you won’t be able to perform rescues within dungeons without your badge.>Ask Faye for your scarf and badge back>Ask Faye for your badge only>Ask for the scarf only>Let her keep them
>>815178>>Ask Faye for your scarf and badge back
>>815178>>Ask Faye for your badge onlyThat way everyone of us has one proper piece of equipment.
>>815186We can find her better equipment>>815183This
>>815202Watch her hang onto our stuff since we looted ALL the chests back then.
>>815178>Ask Faye for your scarf and badge back
>>815178>Ask Faye for your badge only
>>815178“Hey Faye mind if I get my scarf back?”“O-oh. Yes, of course… Sorry, it was unladylike for me to take it without asking…” She seems somewhat downtrodden as she hands you your scarf.“It’s fine Faye.” You smile. “You took it so you could help me.” Even though you didn’t need help in the end, but you decide to leave that little detail out as you wrap the scarf once more around your neck.“Yes! Uh, of course that’s why I took it!” She seems somewhat nervous about the whole situation. Her face is somewhat red.“That’s what I just said-” “Moving along.” Alice interrupts you to get on with the events of today.“We still can’t go into another dungeon until the day after tomorrow, so we have to do something until then.”“How about we trai-“ “WE, have to do something Luka, you have to report for a checkup with the guild nurse.” “But-“ “No butts Luka, as future guild master I can’t let my guild members go head first into danger unprepared.”You sigh in defeat, she means well, but she is just gonna keep using that as an excuse isn’t she? You could try and argue with her, but with how hard her head is it might take a miracle to convince her. Maybe you could ask her to-do some things today while you are examined.>Argue (Write in, Roll after vote)>Concede
>>815285>>ConcedeA flustered Faye is fine, too.
>>815285>They went to salt mines >weather scarf would probably be useless>She probably took it because we wear it all the time>Now is to flustered to admit itWhy is Faye such a qtAlso concede for now
>>815285Sorry it took a bit longer, was discussing some things with other QMsYou aren’t going to win this battle, not if that determined look in Alice’s eye is any indication. So you decide to concede and just ask where this examiner is. Alice seems satisfied, excited even, that she sounded professional enough to convince you. Probably thinks she sounded like a real guild master, to be fair, she probably did.>Head out to the examiner>”While I’m out could you…” (Write in)
>>815388Ask them to grab the book from Xatu and look into the gold thorn
>>815388>”While I’m out could you get the golden thorn appraised?"
>>815388“Hey while I’m getting checked out could you go into town and grab a book from Xatu and try and finally get that golden thorn appraised?”Alice nods in confirmation before leading you through the halls of the guild to a fairly Spartan looking room, only with some papers on a table as well as a large slab where you assume you need to sit. Hopping up onto what would probably be a freezing cold slab without your weather scarf you wave off Alice and Faye as they leave to do your errands.They didn’t leave.“Do you not trust me to stay until the doctor gets here?”“Nope!” Alice sounded way too cheery, but she was probably right.“Ah! There you are!” A giant pink egg comes waddling into the room. With another giant egg inside a pouch in front of her. “Oh hello Alice, are you going to get your checkup too?”Alice immediately cringes, “No, just making sure my friend isn’t too nervous while he waits for you.”“Awww~ that’s so cute!”Alice just tries to keep her eyes on the floor, “Well now that you’re here me and Faye should go do what you asked us too Luka.”“But I do not mind stay-““Let’s go Faye!” Alice interrupts her shoving her out of the room leaving you alone with the doctor.>Let her get on with the examination>Ask her what she is looking for>Write in
>>815502>>Let her get on with the examination
>>815502>Let her get on with the examination
>>815502>Write inEh, what's up doc
>>815502You decide to just let the doctor do her job and follow her instructions, the examination starts off fine with what you assume is the normal practice. Nothing to unusual besides her giving extensive inspection of your head, probably thinks the fainting spell was because of a head injury, or possibly even the amnesia if she knows about it. Then she starts going over the rest of your body as well as asking you questions.“Any allergies or negative family traits passed down to you?” She asks while lightly tapping your knee with a hammer, getting your leg instinctively kick.“Not that I know of no.” You think for a second. “Unless you count the whole aura thing.”She hums to herself tapping your other leg with the hammer. “Any major head injuries as far as you can remember?”“A bit hard with amnesia, but no not since I first woke up with it.”She writes down something. “Although you probably don’t remember, have you ever had Pokerus?”“Pokewhat?”“A disease, in layman it essentially puts a Pokemon’s body into overdrive, usually giving some benefits such as increased growth, but left untreated can cause uneven growth in some areas, a host of other side effects, and even death if it is sustained to long. Fortunately most Pokemon either have the constitution or medical attention to get rid of it before it starts doing damage. It also spreads like wild fire, but only to those who have never contracted it.”“Well I have no idea.”“We’ll treat that as if you’ve never contracted it.” She says writing some more stuff down.She comes back to you and begins to- THAT’S A BAD PLACE! THAT IS A VERY BAD PLACE TO TOUCH!>PANIC>She is a medical professional, let her do her work (Roll after vote)

>>815649Your face is exploding in heat as she inspects your package, but you maintain your composure enough to not go into complete panic mode. The Chansey pays no mind as she inspects your… ‘rod’ as well as the ‘fruits’ underneath. Although she asks a question that makes your entire body flush.“So are you sexually active? I know most baby Pokemon don’t but I’ve been seeing a few that do it lately so I wouldn’t be surprised.”You can barely form words.“Oh, do you even know about the Pidgies and the Combees?” She is firmly grasping your sack, feeling around for something.>Write in (Probably gonna be a composure roll as well after vote)
>>815787Just look away and say nothing. We can't do shit with her holding our package

>>815812>>815824You shouldn't lie to your doctor anons. We should just shake our head for now
>>815816This is probably the best. Glad Alice and Faye aren't here.
>>815834>Not wanting to be known as a sex machine
>>815841That'll last all of the five seconds it takes for people to realize we're just a spaghetti machine.
>>815841I don't think that will improve our chances with Alice or Faye.
>>815787You can’t even form words at this point, so you just turn away avoiding eye contact with the girl that has a firm hold on your balls. She takes your silence as a no. Unfortunately a no for both questions.“Oh so you don’t know how the Pidgies and the Combees goes, well let me explain…”The following is a long drawn out explanation that has nothing to do with Pidgies nor Combees. You feel like you lost a bit of your innocence this day, as you are forced to sit through the entire spiel that feels somewhat familiar. One thing that is certainly familiar is the awkward feeling as you are forced to go through it. She even had, you shudder at the memory, diagrams. Fortunately the torture of drowning in the cringe of awkward as you learned about ‘why your body is changing’ and ‘why girls make you feel weird’ ends after what feels like hours and you are free to leave as the examination is over.Although she does say you’ll be back. Which you are not looking forward too. Maybe if you are lucky you won’t have to have any more conversations while your balls are being grasped.>Go check on Alice and Faye>Continue training again>Write in

Despite your bodies eventual protests, despite the burning in your lungs, despite the stinging burn of your legs, and what may be a few blister you kept running until the sun came down. You don’t know how, or even why, but you did. And once it was done, you’d be lying if it didn’t feel a little bit good. Shame you were too tired to even go for dinner, you just went back to your room, before collapsing into your bed.
