Wiki here:http://tgchan.org/wiki/Gargoyle_Quest#AngelPrior threads:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/23814785/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Stone%20MasonYou are a human-form gargoyle crafted of marble set to protect a small town on the frontier of the wild darkness. Your people are still ignorant of what you are, and rightfully so. Knowledge of what you are would simply prove that they fear you or the monsters among them tempt your destruction.The prior night, on your patrol, you encountered tales of a Pastor that heals people with the power of god. Within the old burned church, later in your waking hours, you encountered the very same man performing a dark ritual in the ruins of his church.You had stopped by the ship of a strange man that you know only as "The Stranger" Sensing no life from the man, you had been wary of him, however he bore you no ill will and knew you for what you were. Claiming to be sent by your maker, he offers you your choice of weaponry from his stock. Promising to return within a week's time and offering to trade his wares for "beasties" that you slay.Selecting Iron and Silver daggers, the man bids you farewell and the ship vanishes.Among the lake, you encountered a mermaid that introduced herself as Genevieve, or "Genn." She had seemed to mind her own well enough, so you let her go without vanquishing her.Across the lake, you investigated the howls of the wolves, finding it to be the apparent leftovers of the Werewolf's pack.Killing two of them, you brought the less mutilated back to town.A sleep spell had befallen the guardsmen and as you sought to investigate, the sun had begun to rise.Stashing your equipment, and checking on Molly, you return to your perch to bear the next day.
>>23862874Fuck yea. Been waiting for this all day Stone Mason.What are our options?Also do you think we can get a single Exp point for driving off the wolves for a night and possibly driving them off?
SWEET! Gargoyle Quest.Well, I guess it's statue time now, all we can do is ears drop.Things to pay special attention to:-Any news about the Priest.-Any news about the Mayor or his household.-Any mention of the sleep spell. Has anyone noticed that anything happened?-What the town plans to do with our church, since it's about to be re-opened.Plus, any reports of 'monstrous' happenings.
>>23862967Thats not how the Exp works, we get points for absorbing the souls and energy of mansters we have kiled not our actions of protecting the village or doing anything else.
>>23863044That makes sense. If we are ever low on Exp and know that something big is coming we know where a whole family of monsters are living. Being able to make mist and other illusion magics those mermaids have would be quite useful to our ongoing Stealth route.Also we should go hunting for a brutal soul. I talked with Stone Mason at the end of yesterdays thread and some of those brutality abilities are fucking epic. Unholy Colossus (or Juggernaut) practically makes us invincible.
Upon your pedestal above the church's door, you gaze upon the new foggy morning.Extending your senses, you sense that few have risen yet. Unfortunately there is not yet anything you can do about the phenomenon at this time.With due time however, you feel the priest from the prior night walking up the hill to your church. Turning your vision down, you see that he carries a book of some sort with black binding. Stopping before you, he gives you an intent stare before entering the church. Likely to do some early morning preparations for the mass to be held today.You regard his presence for some time before ignoring it for now. You can not currently sense magic, even if you tried...> Speak to the Priest. You are alone with him now after all. (Write in)> Wait patiently.> Doze off.
Awesome! Yesterdays thread was awesome Stone Mason. What do you got for us today?
>>23863205Wait, wait and watch.
>>23863205Lets see what he is up to. [X] Wait patiently
>>23863205>[x] Wait patiently.
>>23863170>If we are ever low on Exp and know that something big is coming. we can go murder the innocent family in the lake.You're not really getting the whole 'Guardian and Protector' thing, are you?
You wait and eventually sense more life approaching your church. Most of the village seems to be in attendance, save for the farmers you can see in the fields to the south of your church. Among the lives that enter, you sense molly, the two entities from within the mayor's house the prior night, and many more.You hear no whispers of how anyone's sleep was affected from the prior night. Instead, you hear some women gossiping..."Did you hear? They found a man near the north gate that had his skull smashed in. Near him, there was a bible.""Oh, yes, I've heard! My husband says that he must of been some sort of crazy nutter. Naked, in the woods with a bible...""But what could have done such an awful thing? Couldn't be the work of wolves, and what with that fire..""Oh, look at the statue! It looks so welcoming, whyever did we build another church?""Oh, you know. The Square's church was bigger, it could fit all of us. Also, it's in a much better location, at the center of everything, you know.""Ahh, yes... that's right.. Well, when it's repaired, likely we'll return to it I suppose.."The women carry on like that and finally enter the church. You feel Molly and her eyes looking upon you. It almost feels odd to be seen by so many at once. You look down and see that she's smiling at you before heading on in.Pastor Clegane goes through his sermons, preaching about the grace of god and the angels that watch over the town. He finishes service by asking if anyone has any injuries that they'd like to have healed.You sense life forces strengthen subtantially as people take turns meeting him. After service is let out, a number of people letting out of the church. Most of them departing complain about the creaks and the dust of the old church.Molly sticks around and looks up to you,"How are you doing Mr. Angel? I had another nightmare last night about mommy.. Can you ask god if she's okay? Can.. You ask god when they'll stop?"
> Speak(Write in)> Remain Silent.
I feel like I'm trolling you guys by giving you the options to speak...
>>23863534That's because you are.>  REMAIN SILENT!
>>23863455They are monsters of a supernatural origin. They could eventually turn on our charges if some stupid fisherman attacks one thinking it will try to drown him. Just forethought really.>>23863513[X] Remain Silent
>>23863564Murdering the merfolk wouldn't be easy.We sink in water. We will be slow as fuck underwater, the merfolk would run rings around us.We might kill one up on the shore, but then no doubt they'll seek revenge and take it out on the fishermen every day while we can't protect them.
>>23863513>They found a man near the north gate that had his skull smashed in. Near him, there was a bible.Guess the Werewolf reverts to human form after death. Something to keep in mind for the future.>you sense the two entities from within the mayor's houseHow far can we track life force? Monitor them as best we can.>[x] Remain Silent.
>>23863534I felt the same way about you giving us the option of attacking everything yesterday.
>>23863534If ventriloquism style not-obvious-at-all 2spooky speaking is an option, talking to children is more of a possibility.Speaking to the people though...
>>23863564Who said they were monsters? They live in the lake to escape the monsters of the sea. I've seen nothing that suggests they are a threat.Pre-emptive killing of someone because they might come into conflict with someone, for some reason, at some point, at some time, maybe, possibly....By that logic we should just kill everyone. Then we KNOW they they won't kill each other.
Molly turns and leaves, "Thank you for listening Mr. Angel!In your own head, you think. 'You're welcome.'You turn your attention to the incriminating life sources from before. You sense that one has remained nearby and seems to be with the woman that had been gossiping in front of the church before. The other has dissapeared into the town, you reach out with your sense to locate it, yet you are distracted by some men that have hung around by the church."You hear about that mutilated wolf outside the northeastern wall? It looks like something ate it, there were even bones missing.""Aye, heard the head was gone.most of the bones too. Some men tried to come back to move it away from the town but it was gone when they returned..""This... This is our town, right?""Aye, if you want to call it that... The nobility own this town, even the mayor is just a figurehead. You want the owner, you'd better look to that Harlot, Victora Manse.""Shhh! Don't talk about her! Many of the women are in her circle! If she hears about this, you're like to get guard duty!""Bah, I'll say what I want. Guard duty's not as bad as not knowing what's out there...""Speaking of that, Cedrik Sherphard's told tales of the wolves taking his flock in the night!""Seems those mangy muts aren't done with us yet.."The men depart, and nothing more of particular interest circles around.Roll 1d100 for detection of the second life signature.
DC 70*Not used to that.
1 more roll...
Rolled 71>>23863885Try this again.
Rolled 33>>23863891>>23863879thank god for that 62. my 1 would have prolly done something I don't even want to think about.
>>23863906I thought he said to roll 1d70 misread it. :P
>>23863908Tried so hard to detect the person that your head explodes?Mehhehe...Taking >>23863905since >>23863891wasn't the right number.
Rolled 97>>23863908You're still rolling 1d70, not 1d100.
You spend the afternoon feeling around the town for that other presence. You locate it in the direction of the town's center. It does not move during the day, yet in the eve, it begins to move about, heading for the wood and beyond the range of even your finest focus.The woods are dangerous, why would anyone venture out there.. alone at that?This may be worth investigating..
>>23863944To the mystery machine, gang!
>>23863944FOLLOW! But be stealthy and follow at a distance.
>>23863821>wolf outside the northeastern wall? It looks like something ate it,Some sort of scavengers? Might be a good ides to check it out. Maybe put out some bait and hide in the shadows, watch for a while and see what turns up.Might be nothing to worry about, but probably best to check.>Cedrik Sherphard's told tales of the wolves taking his flock in the night!Looks like it's wolf season! We need bait anyway.>You want the owner, you'd better look to that Harlot, Victora Manse.1nb4 that's the second person in the mayors house.
>>23863944Make note of the direction. At sundown we'll see if we can find a trail.
It is worth investigating, yes. Some monsters can take human form.The priest is a blood mage, your senses told you that he saw you last night when you were leaving after looking at him performing a ceremony, and he started too intently at you for it to be a coincidence. We should speak to him before he sets the congregation to shatter us during the day, he would be the ideal caretaker.Also, we told the mermaid to not cause trouble but we never told her we protect the humans, all she knows is that we are something inhuman. We should clarify what we meant.
The sun begins to set and your body tingles with the joy of animating once more to defend your people from the forces of evil.What do you do now?> Check out Shephard's fields.> Visit Molly.> Check out your church.> Moniter the Graveyard.> Head to the northern woods.> Return to the Lake.> Search for this, "Victora Manse"> (Other)Optional> Don your cloak.> Retrieve your daggers from the church.
>>23864076Trusting the priest to be our caretaker seems like a tragically stupid idea.
>>23864076What this post says
>>23864106Don the cloak and daggers. I say we fuck the priest up - he's obviously aware of us to some extent, has dishonorable intentions and is thus our greatest threat. The longer we wait the worse it gets.
>>23864106[X] Don your cloak.[X] Retrieve your daggers from the church[X] Head to the northern woods>>23864124For now I agree, we need to observe him more.Captcha >mollie ocutypewhats an ocutype? What could it mean? What message is this from the Captcha Gods?
>>23864106grab our equipment and head to the woods, see if we can find that presence.
Lets find this Victora Manse>>23864124He is performing dark magicks for good deeds, or is secretly evil.He is either an ideal caretaker (pillar of community can speak on our behalf, we stash ourselves and our stuff in church, can teach us magic)Or he is secretly evil and would serve as a meal.However, it is perhaps premature to speak to him right now. Nonetheless if he does know or suspect then being silent is a good way to be killed in our sleep. If we don't deal with him one way or another then we should hide away during the day somewhere safer then the top of a church.
>>23864076>we told the mermaid to not cause trouble but we never told her we protect the humans, all she knows is that we are something inhuman. We should clarify what we meant.Good point. In fact, maybe we should work out some sort of SOP.Just so we don't delay the quest for two hours deciding what to say every time we meet something new.I recommend some sort standard greeting.Tell them: We are the Guardian of this place. Ask who & what they are. Tell them we mean no ill will but warn them not to harm our charges.Unless this is something that is clearly hostile/already attacking. Like the Werewolf.In that case, no talking, just kill it.
>>23864173What dishonorable intentions? All we know is that he is able to crystallize his blood through a ritual involving a circle of Protection and heal wounds.He may turn out to be good. Also if he knew about us and wanted us gone he would have attempted to destroy us during the day when we can do absolutely nothing.
A note: You sense life inside the church, do you still retrieve your equipment?
>>23864106[x] Don your cloak.[x] Retrieve your daggers from the church.[x] Head to the northern woods.If the trail is hot, we'll follow it while we have the lead. If the trail is cold.[x] Check out Shephard's fields.
>>23864254Wow you are really trying to push this priest encounter. Fine still go grab our stuff.
>>23864254Do we know who this life is?If it's the Priest, he already knows about us. While I think we should keep him at arms length and continue observing him 'till we know more, it's not like we need to hide from him either. He already knows we move.If it's not him, wait a while, see if they just leave. If they don't seem to be leaving, go without our stuff.
>>23864210I like it, I would replace "guardian of this place" with "guardian of these humans". It is an important distinction.>>23864211I tend to also think he is most likely "good"But we aren't sure the ritual was of protection. All we know is that we sensed it was dark magic and that he said the bloodletting would make them stronger. Stronger could be achieved via summoning monsters to weed out the weak. (I am not saying that it is likely, only that it is possible)..@Stone Mason: When we saw him perform the ritual, he was blood letting into a ruby chalice on an altar... were we able to identify what god was this alter to?
>>23864331This seems most sensible, but are we not a creature of stealth? Can we not sneak through the church to get our shit and go with whoevers inside none the wiser?
>>23864254Can we enter stealthily?
>>23864374The altar was to the human "God."
You wait upon your perch for a moment as you sense a presence within the church. Proceeding without your equipment is in all liklihood a bad move, especially proceeding without your cloak.After some time passes, you feel that the life has at least gone to sleep for the night.With that, you land as gently as possible and weave your shadows into the darkness of the church, heading directly to your stash while avoiding creaking boards.With your daggers on your hips and your makeshift cloak around you... you find that there is a much finer tapestry of red and gold within the church now that you could possibly wear, do you take it?> Yes> No.It would replace your still dusty, and progressively tattering cloak as it is now...
>>23864374>I would replace "guardian of this place" with "guardian of these humans"Are we limited to only Humans?People with legs. People with fish-tails.If they live peacefully within our territory, I'd view them all them same.
>>23864457[X] YesWe ought to look the part, it's hard to be intimidating if you wear something falling apart.
>>23864457>[x] NoIt's not like a Gargoyle has vanity. Stealing the new decorations from the church is sure to be noticed and call attention to our roost.
>>23864457[X] NoThe priest already suspects us, and we don't know anything about him yet. No reason to antagonize him by swiping the new tapestry.
>>23864457I'm not sure. Its probably more flashy than our current one, which should impact our stealth negatively.On the other hand looking like a beggar kinda sucks.I say take it. Our magic will make up it.
>>23864457>[X] NoAs long as it covers our identity we dont need anything more lavish.
>>23864457Leave it there. We're trying to be stealthy, not flashy. Besides, the priest would probably suspect something was up if he finds his tapestry missing.
You decide not to take the cloak. It would be against your interest and it is far too flashy to suit your purposes. You leave without a second look at it, heading out of the church.You wing over the town, heading to the northern wood to track down that presence that had vanished there in the evening. Reaching out, you feel a powerful life-force coming from the north-east.And several smaller ones to the far north, the same direction where you had last detected your suspect.Which direction do you go?> North> North-east> Return to the Town.
>>23864457No - don't need to draw attention to ourselves or make anyone suspicious.
>>23864457No, its stealing from our charges, it is going to make the priest suspicious, and the only reason we wear anything is for stealth.If anything, we should find a way to dye our tattered sheet black.>>23864465Well, we were explicitly made to guard only humans, but I am not averse to extending that to others.Monsters is behavior not appearance.How about "people"? "innocent"? Or just outright explain?
>>23864576North-east.What/who was the life form in the church?
>>23864611You did not recognize the life-form.
>>23864576>[x] North-eastSomething powerful bares investigating.>several smaller ones to the far northCan you make out a number and could you recognise these if you detected them again?Assuming this powerful thing doesn't take all night we can come back to this later.
>>23864576northWe need to know if there is some cult or ritual thing going on, or even if there is a monster amung our charges.
>>23864576Let's make a quick pass over the smaller life signatures on our way to investigating the larger one, as it would appear that monsters flock to our little hamlet like moths to a light. (Scout the north signatures then investigate the big one.)
Powerful is tempting, but I say we go for the multiple weaker ones where we last detected our suspect.If the suspect is innocent she could be in danger, and if she is a monster in human skin then we need to find out about it ASAP.
>>23864589How about-"I am the Guardian of this place and its people." Ect, ect.Simple, to the point. Well?
You fly northward to get a quick scan of the life forms, attempting to discern their number and type.You sense the one from the village and clusters of those that would likely to be wolves. The one from the village seems to be alone and heading further north and into the night.The life signature from the northeast as relocated itself to the south, heading towards the village...
>>23864733He's heading towards our charges! Intercept the bastard!
>>23864733>>23864745Well, shit. Let's go check out the south-per-northeast signature that's headed towards the village, as it would appear to be the bigger threat at current.
>>23864640I've changed my mind.[x]North.A wolf in sheeps clothing is far more dangerous than a wolf outside the gate.
>>23864733>heading towards the village...We'll check up on the others later. Intercept!
>>23864733>Powerful creature heading to village>Suspicious "Human" heading towards trouble or subterfuge...Every day is like sophie's choice... I really wish we could be at two places at once.I would say follow our suspect stealthily, wolf in sheep clothes is too dire a threat.
>>23864745Redirect course to intercept target to the south, all ahead full, message command of new course and target, launch interceptors and engage at full power, all hands below deck and submerge.
With the threat of the wood heading for your people, you wing forward and dive down aiming at the potentially threatening signature.As you close in, you see that there are swathes of forest that have been degraded and corroded. From patch to patch of dessicated wood, there is a path of destroyed trees with the life signature traveling through an already made trail to your village.It seems that the creature has already made quite the fair path earlier in the day, and it seeks to return this night.As you near the creature, you see it for what it is, trudging along at a slow and steady pace. With the darkness, you cannot make out it's entire form, yet you understand well enough to know that it towers over you by at least twice your size...It continues to steadily head for the town, a pair of smaller...> Engage the monster head on with your daggers!> Slip around in the shadows, striking quickly when you can and retreating.> Retreat, this... this is too much.> Head to the suspicious life force up north.> Other.
>>23864723Sounds good, so in summary, the SOP is:1. If it is hostile, mindless, or seeks to harm our people kill it outright with no negotiations.2. If it appears reasonable and non hostile give the following spiel:"I am the Guardian of this place and its people, both humans and the non-hostile inhuman""I mean you no harm so long as you mean no harm to my charges""Who are you? what are you? and what are your intents?"
>>23865034A pair of smaller whats?
>>23865066A pair of smaller typos. Was going to include smaller trolls with it. Decided against it.
Rolled 62>>23865034Let's circle around behind it and attack it from behind with our superior mobility.
>>23865034>a pair of smaller...A pair of smaller....?[x] Other. Remain unseen and out of its range."Halt creature. Your are heading for a town. I protect this place and its people. What are you and what do you want here?"
>>23865034I'd say we try to communicate with it before we start the stabbing, but I don't want to ruin the element of surprise. Let's stealthily start the murder.
>>23865091At the rate its going, how long until it reaches the village and could it be seen by the village from where it is nowUse the shadows to get a better look at this fucker
>>23865034[X] Slip around in the shadows, striking quickly when you can and retreating.
>>23865062Yeah, I wouldn't go into that much detail unless needed, but that's the basic idea."I am the Guardian of this place and its people" Sounds good. We don't need to specify species unless it comes up for some reason.
1. It is going straight for town.2. Everything in its path rots and dies.Hostile force detected, as per SOP kill it with no warning...However, I would like to first circle it and observe it in more detail so that we could try to determine any weak points..
>>23865286>Everything in its path rots and diesThat might just mean it's a foul bastard. It might not be intentional or optional.It might not know there is a town ahead.I say give it our standard warning. If it turns around and goes away... Fine. If it proves hostile or just mindless, strike unseen from the shadows!
>>23865286Yes, approach as stealthily as possible to examine it.
>>23865377Agreed, before we speak/attack/whatever, remain unseen and get a good look at it.Potential weak spots:Eyes. Groin. Neck. Achilles tendons.Even if we do speak to it, remain unseen. Then if we do need to attack we still retain some element of surprise.
You descend among the shadows of the trees, staying out of the way of the huge and imposing creature. You take note that it seems to be moving rather slowly, despite the carved path. In the light of the waning moon, you see that the creature is covered in vegetation, yet the life around it flickers and withers.You have determined that it is indeed a threat to the town, and with it heading for your territory, your instincts scream at you to kill it.However, you subdue the impulse, examining the creature intently. Its eyes glow faintly with an unearthly sickness, it moans with a "Gwwohhhh...." that carries on into the night. A nearby tree whithers from its breath.Searching for vulnerabilities, you determine that its legs are rather thin at the knee, and overall its body is lanky.It may topple easily if its legs or feet are taken out.There are several strange growths on its flesh among the vegetation with strange glowing yellow sprouts... those may be of interest as well.They are scattered around its body.Its eyes are another potential target, though riskier. They are large and round, the size of plates. A dagger to its eyes may be just the thing you need to put it down.It seems not to notice you as of yet.It trudges along with its path. It will likely reach the town in an hour at its current rate.> Strike for its legs!> Strike for the eyes!>Strike for the growths!> (Other)> Retreat.
>>23865458Legs first to immobilize it or damage its movement. Just because it seems slow doesn't mean it is all the time.
>>23865458Legs. Mobility-killing it means you can come back for another go if need be.
>>23865458[x] Other. Remain unseen and out of its range."Halt creature. Your are heading for a town. I protect this place and its people. What are you and what do you want here?"If diplomacy doesn't work.[x] Strike for its legs!Slash at its knees from behind. Once it is down and immobile we can pick it of at our leisure.
legs, its the most guaranteed weak spot
Attack to the legs without revealing yourself.The initiative is yours. First strike is uncontested.>Roll 1d100>Initiative with cloak grants +20.
Legs, if 0 degrees is its front, run at it from 135 degrees (4.5 oclock) and slash at its legs from behind following through with a smash with the wing as you run across.If it topples forwards go for the growths. If it topples backwards go for the eyes. If it does not topple at all continue running back into the shadows to plan your next attack.
can we get a better description of the mosnter? is it humanoid? have mouth? arms? other appendages?
>>23865631The picture I posted with its sighting is pretty much what it looks like as a whole. The rest is written in.
>>23865635MMMmmmmmmyes. That roll there is delicious.
>>23865635We just cut his legs off and kicked him in the back of the head with his own feet!
>>23865635Yesss. Initiate dagger buggering
Since this is going to come up soon.[x]Vote against absorbing the Trolls life-force.This thing seems sickly and is poisonous enough to rot the surrounding woodland with its breath.I have no idea what that will do to us and I don't want to find out. We'll get more Exp later.Fell the beast then fly north. See if we can pick up the trail.At least we might pick up those wolves. We need to cull the local wolves.
Rolled 56>>23865635RAPE TRAIN HAS NO BREAKS
>>23865635Mason should let you rip its heart out for power for that roll, I fucking love you snapple. Imagine if people from the BFQ thread could see this nobody would think twice about letting your crazy shit.
You will not let this creature threaten your charges.With silent resolve, you step out from the shadows of the tree, around to its rear, drawing closer and closer through the bed of leaves, unnoticed due to your shadow and natural subtlety. Within appropriate range, you draw your daggers and leap at the leg of the collosal creature, sinking each of your daggers deep into the backs of the creature's knees, planting yourself firmly on its calves before slicing the blades to the inside ( -><-) and pushing off as it falls to the ground in a forced kneel. It roars into the night.The thing swats back at you futiley, however it does not seem to know where you are. The creature begins to plant its hands into the ground, seeming to want to get up. . .It is aware of you now, however it seems to not know where you are. You cut a major tendon in its knees, however it is trying to stand...> Strike at the joints of its arms.> Aim for the eyes.> Sink your daggers into its back.> Strike at those strange growths!> (Other)
>>23865773We should wait until we see what potential traits we could gain from absorbing its life-force.Knowing nothing about it, I'd have voted against absorbing a werewolf given that it's a savage creature that can't even control its own form. But the traits on offer were almost all decent in some way.Save your vote for when it comes up.
The crit has caused you to retain Initiative.
Rolled 60Are you waiting for more rolls? IIRC it is best of 3 only for DC checks, for combat its 3 of ours vs 3 of the monsters executed in order. So... rolling.>>23865773We should absorb it, we should just convert it to general XP.If we rolled on werewolf we could have become week to silver, with the banshee we could have become forced to feed on humans to survive. Absorbing whole means rolling and is a big risk that carries a reward worth 3x-5x more XP; when we absorb something as general XP we unlock the ability to spend power to unlock the good traits they have. So we should on principle absorb everything as general XP barring unusual circumstances. Growth will be slower but we will not go insane, develop a hunger for human flesh, or gain terrible weaknesses that will get us killed.
>>23865846>[X] Strike at those strange growths!Strike one of the weird growths while plunging the daggers into the back of the creature.

>>23865846[X] Strike at the joints of its arms.Lets get a mobility kill before we go for an actual kill.
>>23865846Let's go for the arms. Best to disable it completely, lest it get a lucky shot in on us and swat us out of the air.

Rolled 31Go for arm joints.
>>23865887>>23865867Absorbing its life-force isn't what I'm worried about. It seems to have some sort of horrible monster plague.

You close in upon the creature as it begins to flex its arms and fuitlely tries to stand, its legs beginning to bleed out a green fluid.Seeing a straightening in its arms, you leap from your cloaking shadows and slash across the joint of its left arm.You see an arm coming for you as you wing off to its front, the creature collapsing further upon the ground due to its injuries.Its sick yellow eyes glare at you with anger, slowly turning red as it uses its gangly left arm to force itself toward you, cleaving the earth itself with its fingers, a part of you bears some relief that it hadn't actually caught you.Its eyes are locked on you and it is advancing despite its injuries. It only has one good arm currently...>Throw a dagger into its eyes.> Advance forward and aim for its eyes.> Strafe around to its back and attack it in the spine.> Strafe and strike it in the eyes.> (Other Strategies)
>>23866151>[X] Strafe and strike it in the eyes.I don't want to risk a throw, sounds like an invitation to get the knife tangled up in vines. Take advantage of the injuries we've already done and our wingspeed and get the eyes.
>>23866151How strong are we?Would it be possible for us to drop a nearby tree on it and then once the tree is on it we stab it in the spine or something like that?
>>23866184Not yet strong enough for that. Would require points spent in brutality.
>>23866151I vote for spine attack. It has a bead on us, let's get out of his sight and stab the fucker while we're at it.
>>23866151>[x] (Other Strategies)Back away and fade into shadow. Circle unseen and wait for an opening.If it presents a clear shot for its eyes, take it.Otherwise, take its other arm and finish immobilising it. Do not touch the weird growths.
>>23866234i can't help but think the growths have some volatile substance in them, so avoid them.
>>23866151Finish of the last arm of this beast. We should be able to see where the arm would have trouble reaching and approach it from there to cut its tendon.
>>23866213Damn. I was hoping that we'd be able to drop one of the withered trees on it, those aren't that hard to knock over.Okay, circle it, don't let it face us, use our wings to our advantage for fast movement, then once we're behind it go for the other arm.
>>23866151>otherpic related, death from aboveright through the side of its skull and out the other, superman style with both daggers in our hands and we retract our wings just before impact to increase speed and prevent them from breaking off
>>23866339>Asteroid rolls a nat20.jpg
>>23866292Stone Mason has repeatedly mentioned this thing seems sickly and diseased. I'm thinking those things might be puss filled sacks of plague goo or something.This is also why I voted against absorbing its life-force.
When we eventually kill the thing we should go find a bible and stuff it in its mouth.
>>23866394Why?Most of your suggestions are just 'WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? WHY WOULD YOU EVEN SAY THAT?!'This one was just random.
>>23866466The old ladies were talking about the naked guy (werewolf) with a smashed in head and a bible on him.This is a way for the townspeople to know they have some God-affiliated protector without walking around talking to everyone and claiming to be an angel.
Rolled 54Strafing for the other arm, proceeding to back attack, and a strike to the eyes.3 rolls, vs the troll's 3 rolls.You guys get 1d100.
Rolled 62, 71, 78 = 211fml. These are the troll's rolls.
>>23866498I'm not sure how far away this plague giant is from the town, if it' s far away they might not even find it. Other than that, I'm pretty sure this would just make them feel a little safer so I can't really argue aginst it.
>>23866498Just seems like a waste of time, effort and bibles.A better use of our time would be flying north and trying to pick up the trail.
>>23866388Sickly and sick are not the same thing... Even if it was a friend of the priest coming in for some healing it could not be allowed to walk into town and wither it. If it can be reasoned with still we could ask for clarification and if that really is what it was doing go get the priest, but otherwise it should be put down before it infects other things.And that is if it is actually sick and not just feasting on the lifeforce of the plants due to being a monster.Vampires look sickly too.>>23866498Just avoid letting them find our victims in the future. Rather then reassuring them it makes them more scared. Reassurance should come in things like doing construction work at night not by leaving a gory sacrilegious mess
>>23866213Remembering back to when we first investigated our church there were 3 books "The books read,"The Holy Bible""God and Magic"And then a scarlet red one...,"Magic Bound in Blood.""and i was wondering, could we learn magic from reading about it or being taught it or only by absorbing it and unlocking it with points, and would it atleast unlock more options?
>>23866643It might be possible but I'd rather put our free time to something more productive for the town.Helping them in some way.We can gain magic just by preforming our duties.
If the Gargoyle had chosen the eldritch specialty, it could have learned from Tomes. As it stands, magic is unlocked via exp or related supernaturals.
>>23866706Yeah, best way to make our people feel safe is to avoid making them feel like a target for evil creatures.
>>23866598>If it can be reasoned with still we could ask for clarificationI was all for speaking to it at first and warning it to turn back before attacking but I don't think that would have worked.If this thing was intelligent/could speak, it would have cried out in pain or surprise by now.We would have at least heard a "AARRG! What's there!?"It's probably mindless.
You retreat into the shadows at the bumbling monsters advance, its eyes remain locked on you even as you conceal your form.You strafe around to take out the monster's other arm, losing sight of it behind trees, you bound out at your target only to see that its eyes are still locked onto you, and the flailing arm comes down upon your solid body. If you weren't so durable, you'd likely have suffered cracks from the sheer force. Stuck in the ground, to your shins, you are slammed by a backhand from the creature, knocking you through trees, that break your impact.You feel a crack running through your wings that slowly heals itself as you don the shadows once more, going around fully to the monster's back, its eyes not upon you, you find that its spinal column is for the most part exposed from its gangly and horrid form. Cutting deep, the monster unleashes a thunderous roar in pain as it flails about, only to give you the time for more deep and numerous strikers.Getting ahead of yourself, you stab up its back and reach around to take out its eyes, only to feel the pressure of both of its hands upon you. Grabbing you by the wings, it slams you into a tree, a light fracture running through your body before it tosses you into the air, allowing you to regain control midair, via your wings. You feel the new cracks in your body begin to start healing as well...The best plants its hands upon the ground and slowly tries to stand once more. Its arms are back within function, however it soon falls due to its legs not working.It seems your attacks to its spine have been effective.The Target is down, what do you do?> Fall back, it has been neutralized.> Dive down, daggers forward, aiming for those eyes.> Strike for the arms once more.> Attack the strange growths.> (Other)
>>23866903>[X] Strike for the arms once moreLegs not working, great. Finish the arms off, that's its source of strength.
>>23866903Aim for the eyes. We need to take this shit down.
>>23866903Throw some sand in its eyes before we get to stabbing more.
>>23866903[x]Strike for the back of the head/neck.Strike then back away. Do not give it time to grab us.We shouldn't just leave it. It might have regen like us. We must finish it off before we move on.Also. I LOVE OUR REGEN!
>>23866903>[X] Strike for the arms once more.Gotta keep at it.
>>23866903>[X] Dive down, daggers forward, aiming for those eyes.Dive like a hawk, strike like an eagle.
It regained use of its other crippled arm, its legs probably healed by now and are not working due to the severed spine. It must have regeneration like you do. Go for the eyes to finish it off.

>>23867217>>23867221>>23867231>>23867276damn right I do but maybe some fight should use modifiers like when we got +20 for bein stealthy so its not pure chance all the time and its actual sratagy and scenario.
>>23867276You mean the mechanics? Yeah, it's fine.
>>23867331I adjust the monster's max roll based on its condition. Otherwise, it'd get full 1d100 rolls.
>>23867276I really like it. It gives longer OP posts at the time. And i like having a a little to read in each OP post. I feel it makes the quest flow better.
>>23867331Agreed, the mechanics are good so far.But I would think there should be more modifiers (both negative and positive) for choice of tactics, terrain, conditions of fighters, and relative strength. Then again, those modifiers could very well be hidden so we are not immediately told if a tactic is effective or not by the numbers. (although, I think you might have already been doing that)
You fly higher into the night sky, focusing on the horrid thing's life as you set your daggers into reverse grip. Plunging down onto the creature's body, you face the two daggers forward and angle your wings to adjust your trajectory. You yell out loud at the beast to draw its attention at the last moment and tuck your wings in before contact.The shout made the creature turn its ugly saucer eyes directly into your attack, driving your daggers deep into the weak organs and crushing its face in with your weight, forcing the creature down as it screams horribly.You force out your daggers from its crushed face and while using its shoulders as footholds after a flap of your wings, you drive the bite of your dagger into the base of its skull, causing its arms to go limp. The Creature wails into the night, startling birds from their trees, with its final breath, cut short with a blade across its horrible flesh.The troll has been slain and you wrap your wings around the corpse, reaping your reward...> Convert into exp.> Convert into trait.1Sloth: Prone to sluggish, lazy behavior.2-3: Aura of Decay: Things around you naturally grow sick and die.4-5:Decaying Body: Your body becomes fragile and crumbles intermittently due to supernatural rot.6: Might of the Wood: You have gained the might of the troll, though it's a fraction of what it would be due to your size, you have strength enough to tear a sapling from the ground.7-8:Frenzied Regeneration: You have the regenerating prowess of the troll, fully replacing lost or broken stone.9: Primal Heart: Opens up primal magic.

>>23867446Damn tempting to risk converting into a trait.
>>23867446[X] Convert into exp.We have a 50% chance of getting something detrimental as hell. As much as I would love any of the bonuses it gives it's too much of a risk.
>>23867446Lets roll for a trait. anything in 6-10 would be good.1 is manageable, 4-5 is countered by our regen.2-3 is fucking awful, but still.
>>23867446Convert to XP - don't wanna risk the bad traits.Also, what can we do to harvest/preserve this body to trade to the Stranger?
>>23867446GAH! Risky business.The downsides are murder but the regen and all are so good.....I'd go with exp, personally. Play it safe.
>>23867446[X] Convert into expI am not touching those traits. That could get nasty.Let's move on quickly. Fly north and look for our suspect.
>>23867481We can buy the traits with exp, we just need to kill more monsters to get the exp.
>>23867446EXP. Choice over random shit. Do not want Aura of Decay.
>>23867446I say expThe 6-9 traits are cool but everything below seems bleh.
>>23867446Let's convert it to XP. Too much risk with those negative traits.
You accept the knowledge of the monster into your body. It may have been mindless... yet there was something determinedly... ancient about it.3 EXP gain! Like before, it will take a bit to settle in fully.With this threat to the village done, you ponder what you could do to preserve the body for the stranger to pick it up next Saturday...> Leave it here.> Throw it in the lake.> drop it in the middle of town.> Stow it in the church.> Bury it in the graveyard.> Other.Optional.> Just take the head.> Take the whole body.
>>23867569Spoiler-fail.With this threat to the village done, you ponder what you could do to preserve the body for the stranger to pick it up next Saturday...> Leave it here.> Throw it in the lake.> drop it in the middle of town.> Stow it in the church.> Bury it in the graveyard.> Other.Optional.> Just take the head.> Take the whole body.
>>23867569>>23867574Take the head, put it in the town square and stuff a bible in its mouth.
XP. once we eat enough trolls we can use general XP to BUY any of the traits we really want without risk of really detrimental stuff.
>>23867574I say take the whole body and store it in the graveyard.
>>23867574> Bury it in the graveyard.> Take the whole body.
>>23867569Bury it here. Taking to town is too risky, and placing it in the lake in a recipe for spreading its decay/corruption.Alternatively, we bury the head in the graveyard and the body here so if we lose one hopefully we can still have value from the other (although I'm sure the entire thing is more valuable.)
>>23867583>top lelIt doesn't seem like there's a good place to store this fucker.It's diseased. I say we spend the time and effort to bury it and avoid future negative consequences.>risk of undead troll?Do not bury it in the graveyard. Bury it near the lake. It'll be easier to dig through the sand anyway.
>>23867583No>>23867590Considering the instant rot that the troll caused and the possibility it was diseased I don't want its corpse anywhere near the town.We need to find a nearby cave to stash those corpses in. For now quickly and roughly "bury" it where it fell (cover it up with stuff so animals wont eat it) and leave some markers, then go after our suspect from before, maybe you can still catch her doing something tonight.
>>23867574[x] Leave it here.We have more important things to do. It left a trail a blind man could follow, we can find it again later if we want to.Also, I'd like to wait and see if its corpse has any weird side-effects before we bring any part of it back.Does the Aura of Decay stop now that it's dead?[x]Fly north.
>>23867569Let's bury the body in the woods, but keep the head hidden in a safe place where we can find it again. Dropping it all in town, while hilarious, would not be very prudent.
>>23867670Why would we want to keep the head and corpse separately?
>>23867623>Bury it near the lake.I'd rather keep it away from the towns water source.Later, when we're on patrol or scouting the area we can keep an eye out for a suitable cave or something. For now, just leave it here.It's to big and funky for anything to carry off or eat. We can come back later if we want it.
>>23867687So that both aren't destroyed at the same time. If something eats the body or head or it's discovered and burned at least we'll have the head back for trade.
>>23867687To bring to the stranger when he comes as proof of the kill, as we're sure as hell not lugging that fetid colossus to the ship.
>>23867701That makes sense, but if we're going to leave it, we should at least bury the head in the safe location. It's probably worth some of the reward.
>>23867729I'd rather get moving myself. Making a profit from this thing sounds like a nice side perk but it should come after our duty.If it takes half and hour to hack off the head and bury it, that could cost us our suspect.
>>23867804*half an hour
Woah, woah, woah... So much...Let's try one more time, from options I've seen brought up...> Bury near the lake.> Leave the corpse where it is for now.> Bury head in Graveyard.
op, could you please not spoiler your post? i cannot unspoil it from my phone
>>23867821If those are the options just leave it as is.
>>23867821[X] Leave the corpse where it is for now.
>>23867701Yea, don't bring it near water source... We might have to burn it, heck we might have to burn the infected woods if the corruption spreads rather then heals.>>23867715The stranger doesn't care about proof, the bodies are worth money, that is he is gonna harvest them for magical ingredients probably or sell them to someone who would.It is better to put 2 eggs in a one well protected basket then placing them in 2 unprotected basket.
>[X] Leave the corpse where it is for now.And then go after Victora Manse
>>23867834The part just below it is the unspoilered. It was an accident.
>>23867821I guess...[X] Leave the corpse where it is for now.If this rot shit spreads, ain't my fault, no sir.
>>23867821Didn't the wolf corpse we left for the villages to find just disappear as if something from the woods collected it? I still think we should leave it because it's going to burn the rest of the night trying to hide it, but I doubt it'll be there for us to collect later.
>>23867879>If this rot shit spreads, ain't my fault, no sir.If the corpse is spreading rot, then brining it to the village itself or its water and fish supply are going to be much worse then leaving it in woods. If the rot spreads we will burn it with fire.>>23867886>I still think we should leave it because it's going to burn the rest of the night trying to hide it, but I doubt it'll be there for us to collect later.Agreed, it is a matter of priority.
You back away from the monster, taking note of the rotting aura from its body seeming to persist. With scrutiny of a perimeter tree, you determine that the rot is persisting, yet not spreading... for now.You remove the horrid green blood from your daggers and take flight into the night once more, heading north after your primary suspect.The troll was a convenient diversion, yielding strength that you had not gotten from the prior night.You carry on north until you sense the familiar life. You can feel that it's heading towards the south at this point, returning to the town.The other small lives in the area, the feral ones, seem to have departed, and this person is alone...> Swoop down and attack the person.> Close in and ascertain who it is.> Follow from high and above, tracking movement.> Return to the town.> (Other)
>>23867886If something can carry off a 12ft Troll corpse over night then....Yeah, at some point we should put out some bait and watch.It might be nothing, but considering how this world seems infested with monsters, we would be wise to check.
>>23867963[X] Close in and ascertain who it is.
>>23867964>Follow from high and above, tracking movement.
i say take the head with us while we investigate to the north, it wont take any of our time and it wont slow us down, we can hide it later if we find a suitable place, if not, we can just chuck it into the wood. its also a good way to know if the rot still spreads after death
>>23867963[X]Sink into the shadows and trail them.Follow them silently as long as possible/until we've learned all we can.
Close in and ascertain who it is.
>>23867994 here.Changing vote to >>23868014.
>>23867963>the rot is persisting, yet not spreading... for nowTomorrow night we're coming back to fix this before it gets out of hand.We'll need an axe and a hoe to make a fire break, a flint and some oil or something.
>>23868062It's familiar in that it's been sensed before.You never saw what they looked like/who they were.
>You carry on north until you sense the familiar life.>Close in and ascertain who it is.Isn't this totally redundant since we can already recognize who it is via familiarity with our life sense?Since she is returning to town she somehow survived the hungry wolves, very suspicious and worth investigating more. Keep spying on her as per:>>23868014>>23868067As long as it isn't spreading we can just leave it until the trader comes back and buys it off of us or tells us how to safely dispose of it. (chopping it or burning it might make things worse)
>>23868062We recognise this life-force as one of the two in the mayors house. We do not know the name or face of this life-force. Or what it is up to out here. We need to learn more.
You land some distance from your suspect.Among the trees and shroud in your woven shadows, you trail them, closing in to attempt to see who the person is.Among the shadows, you can see that the person's build is thin, lanky. With broader shoulders like that of a man. The rest of their form is hidden under a cloak.They move hastily as though with conviction. They carry with them a lantern in one hand, and what seems to be some kind of book in the other...> Trail them all the way back to town.> Speak from the shadows.> Harass them with a thrown rock.> Come up from behind and put a dagger to their throat.> (Other)
>>23868157>[X] Trail them all the way back to town.Knowing where it lives will be vital. If we find out more information, we can confront it at the time and place of our choosing. Also, we still don't know if he/it was up to anything bad or not.
>>23868157[X] Harass them with a thrown rock.Throw a stone into the trees. Get a reaction form them so they'll reveal something about them self.
>>23868180This. Speaking to it out of the shadows is tempting but being able to deal with it on our terms seems the better option.

>>23868180True it would be, but we can do that once it reaches back to town by simply observing where this familiar life-force sleeps. It did what it wanted in the woods and will likely reveal little on the path back.If it is the mayor this might be a golden opportunity to search his house. If the mayor house is occupied then we can double back and track him the rest of the way.If we do insist on following it through the woods we should lure a threatening animal in his direction so we can observe how he deals with it.
>>23868157push them over and steal the book while running away shouting NEEEEERD.
wait, them? isnt it just 1 person? how many person are we dealing with here?
Creeping about in the darkness, you follow the suspect for some way, monitoring their every move... However it cklicks in you, that they've already done what they had intended.. So to pursue would likely hold no merit.. Unless you found their home.However, there are things you can still do at this point.You find a small enough pebble nearby and fling it into some bushes, rustling the leaves.At the sound, the person turns and a flash of ghastly white energy flashes from their palm, withering the plants."Damn Wolves. Thought I'd driven those mangy beasts off..."The man waits for a moment, seeming to be listening."They whine..." He whispers."Who is out there!? Show yourself!" He shouts, pulling together more of that pale light into both of his palms, ready to vanquish the responder.It's a man, and in the light, you see that he has a few scars on his cheek, likely from a clawed beast, and a short moustache with a light beard. His hair is.. Well, you can't tell the style or the color right now.> Remain Silent.> Engage the man.> Speak from the dark. (Write in)> Retreat.> Other.

>>23868395Thank you, but please handle that with a bit more tact.Certainly it is quite late for some people.
>>23868392>At the sound, the person turns and a flash of ghastly white energy flashes from their palm, withering the plants.I don't like him.Find another pebble to draw his attention, then engage his backside. Marble fist+back of head = dead necromancer.
>>23868392>> OtherStart whistling. Preferably something creepy, like the funeral march.
>>23868440>If only you could whistle... You still can't carry a tune.
>>23868392[x] Remain SilentJust wait until he is convinced that it was nothing.Return to town. If the mayors house is empty, search it.If it is not, wait by the north side of town for the wizard to arrive and track him some more.
We are wearing a cloak and can be cloaked in shadow, unless he 1 shot kills us we can escape undetected and I doubt marble withers like plants (although I worry it will rot away the cloak)... so we actually have a chance to talk to him, if so we should stand such that there is a tree between the two of you and speak to him without revealing your identity.I would say that you mean no harm, but are curious to know what he was doing out at night. We want to get as much info as we can and then escape.
>>23868392[X] Speak from the darkI am darkness at it's bluest.To me there is sheer delight in the shadow of the nightNo need to insist, for the night I exist.The light of day is not night's way.I am the night.
>>23868428this but dont murder the guy, and we dont know he is a necromancer, he might be but he was saying how he thought he drove the wolves off so he might not be full on bad news.Throw a pebble again but graple him from behind, enought to let him know he hasnt got a chance of getting out of it but not enought to break ribs, then we interogate him
>>23868494please don't sing demented tunes that sound evil.
>>23868395>>23868395honestly, dont you think him/her is more appropriate given the situation? we arent talking about an organization here, as far as we know we are just following a single personi bet you didnt notice the word "them" till i point it out did you
>>23868479If we reveal ourself he could screw up our investigation.If he knows someone is watching him, he'll just cover his tracks.Remain silent and let him think it was nothing. Then we can fly back to town, maybe search the house and track him some more once he arrives.

You toss a second stone into a different bush, turning his attention away from you as he throws another blast of that withering light.With shadows obscuring your form, you circle to his rear and grab his wrists, forcing him down to the ground by twisting his arms over his head, pinning his palms to the back of his neck.In control with your unnatural strength, the man struggles and screams into the dirt, flailing and kicking.You have options.> Remove his arms.> Interrogate him(Write in.

He is one of our charges, maybe innocent, and we could hurt him, badly, during the grapple.We should not be doing this.Speaking to him from a hidden spot he cannot see or just leaving would have been wiser.
>>23868639[X] Interrogate him(Write in. Note: Your voice is unearthly)"Good Evening. Pray tell, what errand were you running at this hour in the night?"
>>23868639>> Interrogate him(Write in. Note: Your voice is unearthly)Stop struggling unless you want parts to start coming off.Who are you? What are you doing? Answering quickly would be... beneficial. (squeeze a bit harder during the pause before "beneficial")
>>23868639>mfw remove his armsBut no, seriously, interrogate him. Otherwise, why did we go to the trouble?
>>23868659this is a good star. its not like him struggling does anything against our strength. let him struggle all he likes. if we want to let him live though, we have to make sure he wont be hating on gargoyls after this.
>>23868639Now what the fuck can we do?Interrogate him? If he's doing something evil he won't tell us! He'll just lie.If we knock him out in the middle of the woods he's effectively dead....[x]Steal the book and leave before he sees what we are. By learning about the book we might learn something about him.If he is evil we can grab him later. If he's not... We can just give it back or something.
>>23868639Lick his ear
>>23868709this, do we have a tongue? is it wet? can we taste things?
>>23868659>>23868665>>23868669Why does anyone think he's just tell us if he was evil?If he's innocent, he'll say he's innocent.If he's evil, he'll say he's innocent!We can't just ASK people if they're evil. We need to investigate.Grab the book and leave quickly before he knows what's happening.
>>23868728When did I say to ask if he's evil? I just want to see how he responds.Don't like his answer we can knock him out and stuff him naked in the mayors bedroom window.
>>23868659Do this. DO NOT hurt him nor threaten his health.Actually an excellent question while he is still surprised is "would you sacrifice your fellow villagers to save your life and even be granted true power, wizard?"It sounds like we are offering a Faustian deal, if he says no we can release him and apologize.
>>23868751Note that if he says yes he might be bluffing. Its only conclusive if he defiantly says no in the face of death.Alternatively, if someone can come up with a more conclusive question or statement please do so.
>>23868728>>23868691>implying we're a dumb rock and that he has time to come up with a plausible lie while his arms are being strained out of their sockets>implying we can't leave him with a threat not to do anything out of line and fly away before he gets a good look at us>implying we can't now steal his magic bookWe have an excellent advantage, stop complaining and start thinking about how to use it.
>>23868770>Implying a mage needs his magic book to cast spells, even though he has not looked at it while casting and even though we have seen the priest using magic while we know his book is in the other church>Implying magic is needed to kill us during the day if he deduces who/what we are.
>>23868767Any answers we get from him will be worthless.If he was doing something bad out here he isn't going to confess. He'll just give him a cover story.[x]Cut our losses and GTFO! Grab the book and go before he knows what's happening.
Lets just take the book for further study. Maybe he doesn't need it but it will give us insight into who he is. If its filled with rituals about sacrificing babies we don't let him live. If he's just magically inclined we may have a future ally.
>>23868770>stop complaining and start thinking about how to use it.If you want me to stop complaining about stupid decisions. Stop making stupid decisions.I've already suggested the only thing I can think of to salvage this mess. Steal the book and go. We can investigate the book and the mayors house.
Might need some namefagging up in this thread... can't tell which anon isn't samefag.So. I'm seeing that you want to swipe the book an run, yes?> Swipe Book and flee.> Bluff Faustian deal.
>>23868857[X] Swipe Book and flee.
>>23868801>Cover storyThe post you linked is about bluffing him with faustian deal not asking for a story.>>23868857Is that you Stone Mason? if so then I vote:> Bluff Faustian deal.>NamefaggingThat would be nice, isn't there an option to have posts include an IP based identifier?
>>23868857no the majority is interagation, the whole reson we grappled the guy, some people are just being upset.also you lost your name
>>23868857Yes'm, that's me.Well, there is the interrogation. Though it's been mentioned in prior threads that your voice is indeed a bit unearthly. And others make the point that any question asked is likely to be a lie.
>>23868912it doesnt mater if our voice is unearthly because he cant identafy us because we are shrouded and hes face first in the dirt and we wont be in a police line up to be recognised by our voice so why the fuck not se what he has to say? We are already this far in why would we just run with the book?
>>23868955There are two problems with that.1, The feeling of stone hands holding him down.2, If he is guilty of anything, questioning him will reveal nothing anyway.
knock him out if possible, then we can study tbe book, if he seems innocent we can just drop him off somewhere safe near the town
>>238689911. THEN HE ALREADY KNOWS WE ARE STONE BECAUSE WE ARE GRAPLING HIM NOW AND ITS TO LATE TO NOT BE GRAPLING HIM.2. WHO GIVES A SHIT WE CAN BREAK THE FUCKER IF HE STARTS LYING AND THINKS WE ARE FUCKING AROUND, this motherfucker is putting our village in potencial danger and we are going to do something about it for fuck sake.
Not desiring to risk your exposure, you press the man's hands into his neck with one hand, relieve him of his book. With a push, you keep his face down as he struggles.He attempts to speak, to throw curses, however they are muffled by the leaves and dirt you are currently allowing him to eat.You quickly slip away into the dark of the trees, seeing him cast that light at random, rapidly dessicating sevreal trees that it its. He breathes heavily with his frustration," Return it to me! I will have your soul, whatever you are!" You draw distance between the two of you, peering at his faintly glowing magic as he brings both hands together to charge a spell."Die!" He brings the energy down and the light explodes outward, withering and defiling the land in an instant, you are clear out of his range however.He takes a knee, panting from the exertion.It seems that he's rather mad about losing his book. What do you do?> Leave the book there.> Depart back to the town> Kill the dangerous man.> Speak to him.> OtherNote: Without a light source, you cannot read this book.
>>23869046[X] Depart back to the town>I will have your soul, whatever you are!>whatever you are!Good. It seems like it was quick and disorienting enough not to give us away.
>>23868991Faustian bluff could reveal he is innocent if he answers with "I'd rather die". If he says yes then we can string out the bluff to find out for sure. Just word it so nobody is actually harmed.>>23869013Knocking him out in the woods is a good way to him eaten by wolves, not to mention he could die from from the head trauma, we are made of freaking marble.>>23868955True... did we have more exp then the 3 we recently got? If we string out the ruse long enough to get 5exp we can get mind peer which would help detect lies.
>>23869046go back to the church and read the book with candle light if its empty or the person that was inside is still asleep
>>23869046Let's fling a rock at him as we leave as a final "Haha fuck you,"
we must deal with him now, or risk him returning to town and noticing we are missing from our perchim not saying kill him outright tho, i want to see some options
>>23869089we used our only Exp to make us tougher so we only have 3
>>23869046>" Return it to me! I will have your soul, whatever you are!"I fucking knew this guy was a prick. Let's get him!>attack from the shadows! he's tired and disoriented!
>>23869034SPEAKING IN ALL CAPS WILL MAKE MY ARGUMENTS MORE VALID AND MAKE ME SOUND REALLY GROWN UP!>WHO GIVES A SHIT WE CAN BREAK THE FUCKER IF HE STARTS LYING AND THINKS WE ARE FUCKING AROUNDAre you really suggesting we torture him if he doesn't confess to.... Whatever your imagination comes up with.
>>23869104We could spend the rest of the night on our perch pretending to be just a statue.
>>23869104we are no doubt faster than him so it wont be a problem.>>23869119we had our chance to break every bone in his body but then we decided we should just fly away, what would be the point of going back to kill him now just because he got mad at us for taking his shit, anyone would get mad someone took their book especialy if it important which it seems to be.
>>23869104We are just one statue among many in the town. Also, he doesn't seem to have noticed we are a Gargoyle.If we sense him heading in the direction of our church, once he gets back to town, we can just fly ahead and take our spot.
>>23869135then we waste time. what about tommorow night? we already know this guy roams in the night and cast withering magic, are we gonna pretend to be statue every night?
>>23869156We didn't kill him because we weren't sure whether he was good or bad and everyone pansied the fuck out.>anyone would get madWould anyone threaten to steal your soul in vengeance? Yeah. Didn't think so.I want blood. He's a faggot that recklessly looses all his power when he gets angry, I don't want him as an ally. He'll be more useful as EXP.
>>23869119He got mad because some arsehole mugged him in the woods.I don't think that's enough to condemn him.
Lets just wait and follow him and see what he does.
>>23869172we are the only statue which goes missing every nighttho we can sense his soul, so i suppose we can just go back to our perch when we sense him nearing it
>>23869182True, although I meant it more as a counter argument to "we have no options" rather then something we should actually do.So... I suggest we stash it somewhere safe and then go back to hunting. If we can get 2 more exp we could do a proper interrogation using mind peer (and the prereq's aren't bad either).>>23869194I know I would be mad. Especially if that arsehole stole a book containing spells I need to protect the lives of my family and friends
>>23869190>Would anyone threaten to steal your soul in vengeance?He's some sort of wizard. He used a wizardy sounding threat.>He's a faggot that recklessly looses all his power when he gets angry,He blasted a few trees and bushes looking for the dick just just mugged him.If I had the power to throw energy blasts, I'd do the same thing in that situation.Instead of speculating and judging with no information, let's just fly back to town and read the book. Maybe search the mayors house if we can.Once we have some facts we'll know what to do about him.
>>23869253BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GODsighAlright, let's just head back and watch him. Mayoral inspection sounds good.If the dude turns out to be a good guy we can always give the book back.
>>23869046Depart back to town
>>23869046[X] Depart back to the town
anybody wanna know why he has the same powers as the troll we just killed that was making a B-line towards the town?
You creep away from the man some ways. as you do, you see him charging up another spell, only to drop to his knees and seem to give up in trying to instead of attempting the futile endeavor of trying to kill you.Departing into the skies with sufficient distance, you are keen to obscure your form with shadows.You head south, back for the town.- - - - - - - - - - -Back in town, and with a quick circle of the perimeter, you find that most everything is in order. You rightfully destroyed the threatening monster from the north, and you have claimed a strange tome.The Mayor's house contains a life signature, the same one from last night. It seems the one in the forest that you had sensed in the house has not yet returned.> Return to your church, light a candle, and read it.> Check on Molly.> Visit Genn in the lake.> Eavesdrop on the guardsmen.> investigate the mayor's house.> Other
>>23869362>> Return to your church, light a candle, and read it.Let's at the very least try to learn whether or not that white flash does anything to gargoyles.
>>23869362[X] Return to your church, light a candle, and read itthen [X] Eavesdrop on the guardsmenfinally [X] Check on Molly
>>23869379I'm pretty certain that those blasts could fuck us up as they seemed to drain the very life out of those trees. We are animated as some kind of life, so yea we would get a right kick in the crotch.
Good. Looks like it's finally settled. All things considered, that didn't turn out to bad. It could have been a lot worse.We (somehow) weren't exposed and the book could be a good lead in out investigation.Now that this is over, can we add something new to the SOP?'Do not attack people unless we are sure they are evil or pose a threat.'
>>23869382This. We pissed the guy off about the book so we shouldn't waste the opportunity to decipher its contents.
>>23869382I like this set of plans except instead of checking on Molly we should investigate the mayor's place.
>>23869413I didn't come here to behave myself.
>>23869362lets get readin
>>23869362[x]Find somewhere private to read the book.[x]Keep our senses pointed towards the north so we know when he returns.[x]If it's a book on ritual baby sacrifice, kill him.[x]If the book isn't that bad, trail him once he returns to town.
The soul of the troll has settled within your body, you have access to its exp...3exp points to spend, or save.See http://tgchan.org/wiki/Gargoyle_Quest#Abilities
>>23869472Mind Whisper and Obfuscation.
>>23869431Agreed, either her nightmares are mundane and there is nothing we can do or due to a magical force and there is little we can do for her until we can get dream-walker.
>>23869472Mind whisper and dense marble. Being able to compress our wings would aid in our stealthiness.
>>23869472Dense Marble and Mind Whisper seem the most practical right now.
>>23869472Mind Whisper & ObfuscationIf we can get Mind Peer this will be SOOO much easier!
Forgot to save my file in paint. Troll abilities have been added.
>>23869472Since two other guys think Obfucation, what does it even do?
>>23869472We should save up 6XP for Soul Siphon: Higher exp yield from monsters. Reduces risk of negative side effects from trait assimilation. 4-10 become positive chanceBut if we are unwilling to make that investment then do as per:>>23869495
>>23869526 Obfuscation2XP. Req: Mind Whisper, & Subtlety. You further reduce the impact that mortals can sense your presence. So long as they are not magic sensitive, or specifically looking for you, they may lay their eyes over your shadows and see nothing.
>>23869495Actually scratch that. Save them, get Soul Siphon once we get 6. It's the best long-term choice as it will pay for itself after a few monsters once we get it.
>>23869526All abilities have been listed on the wiki:http://tgchan.org/wiki/Gargoyle_Questalso, you can see some on the questdis:http://tgchan.org/kusaba/questdis/res/69289.html
>>23869509>>23869498Thirding mind whisper and dense marble.
>>23869511> Mind Whisper>Allows you to put subtle whispers into the minds of mortals. Their consciousness is weak. When you whisper them, their mind gains a small link to you. Allows you to enter their dreams with more training. They feel your presence.>Obfuscation>You further reduce the impact that mortals can sense your presence. So long as they are not magic sensitive, or specifically looking for you, they may lay their eyes over your shadows and see nothing. Sounds like a plan; basic immunity from some random ass guard saying "HEY GUISE LOOK A GARGOIL"
>>23869472Mind Whisper and Obfuscation
changing>>23869582to>>23869555Always capitalize on abilities that accelerate ability acquisition.
>>23869498Yes, but Obfuscation also gives bonus to stealth and is a prereq for mindpeer as well (read surface thoughts, aka a lie detector AND you can ask someone a question and perhaps read the truth as the concoct a lie)
>>23869605>>23869582This or this.
Just because I like to mess with you guys.The Troll unlocked your primal magic.I don't have the specifics for the spells written for the magic, however you now have access to it.The Banshee was Fae, however she was more spirit/undead than possessing knowledge of Fae magic.Fae is still locked.
>>23869607>>23869596wait wait waitWe already have have:>Angelic Savior (Acquired)>Initial. Having chosen Wings in combination with Humanoid and Marble at character creation causes the trait "Angelic" in which humans see you as their angelic savior should they witness you. Why do we care if normal people see us if we'll be taken as an angel? We should save for the siphon ability.
>>23869472Save for Siphon, due to reasoning pointed out >>23869555and>>23869539
does dense marble give bonus to defense or is it just for stealth?if its just stealth then obfuscate is way better
>>23869498Changing from that to mind whisper and dark forge. If we can make our own weapons we don't need to worry about buying that much from the vendor except specialist materials.
>>23869639I voted for saving for siphon ability.I just argued that obfuscation is superior to dense marble. Dense marble is good for extra HP, reduced damage, and dealing more damage to enemies. it ALSO allows compressing wings for stealth but that is more of a marginal bonus.>>23869618Oh my, this will take some time to enter in the wiki...Does shape earth apply to stone? Cause I am imagining a 10 foot wide 100 foot tall spike of stone in middle of town.... Stash, perch, etc... I would like to see anything climb climb it to assassinate us in our sleep. And entomb self in stone during day
>>23869618This isn't an issue for now but I really want Shape Earth and Fertile Land.The town will fucking love us. They won't have a clue who/what we are but they'll still be happy.
>>23869618while we are discussing the points and where they should go, you are writing the town activity right
>>23869674It gives a bonus on top of Solid Marble to defense. That combined with our regen would make us really fucking tough.I think getting dense Marble and Mind Whisper would help us get to Soul Siphon fast (and intact)
You return to your church, landing before the building, you sense that same life that had been within, still residing here, and still asleep. It is indeed foreign, it doesn't feel like the priest.You have decided to take this tome to candle-light and discern its nature... But who is in here? Does it truly matter to you?> Bring out a candle and read, disregard the person.> Enter to find out who this person is.> Find another light source, do not risk wakening the sleeper.> Other.
>>23869696Oh god... shape stone to draw marble from the earth and shape it to be a duplicate of self as a decoy... someone smashes it and we catch them :)
>>23869682Shadow forge my bad
>>23869723[X] Enter to find out who this person is.
stone mason, how long do you intend to run this quest? if you will stick till the end then it makes sense to go for longterm investment like soul siphonif you only will stick for a few days, i think we'd rather go for more immediately useful investment
>>23869723enter and find out who it is.
>>23869723[x] Bring out a candle and read, disregard the person.I don't think it matters right now. Just be careful not to wake them.
>>23869728If it ever seems like someone is on to us. We've got a plan.
>>23869738I plan to run it for a bit.I've got some time off now and that's why I'm running consecutive nights. I'll run it as well as I can. I like this setting and I like that you guys are getting so involved Despite the arguing Also... You may find more than just this town being under your charge in the future...
In regards to archiving, a thread should be archived immediately upon creation. The archiving process will regularly check it for updates and add them to the archive until the thread is deleted. By starting it right away you:1. Prevent the thread from being lost by accident (nobody archives it and it autosages)2. Prevent a troll from archiving it under a false name and bad tags. (seen it happen on several quests sadly).You only lose the ability to describe what happened in THIS thread by archiving early (but you can drop a hint or you can describe what happened last thread)
You enter the church, determined to find out who it is that's been sleeping in your.. well yes, your church.You open the doors, delivering a small creak and carry on to find the signature. Moving to the back of the church, and avoiding known loose floorboards, you turn and open the door of the old sleeping chamber of the priest.Within, you find a young woman sleepin in the corner of the room wearing rags. It seems likely that she has no home as it is yet... something seems... off about her...> Conceal yourself and speak.> Leave her alone.> Kill her.> Lay your cloak over her.(Though it has a little bit of troll on it)> Other
>>23869872Lay the Red Tapestry over her, not our troll gunked cloak.
>>23869872The troll corpse still emits decay aura, I wouldn't put that stuff on her.>Something offExamine further, maybe you can detect something.Isn't there a nice new tapestry here? we could cover her with that.
>>23869872[X] OtherLets go read the book now.
>>23869872If there's something off we could lay the side of our dagger against her leg.If she's demon or fae there will be a negative reaction.
>>23869890>>23869893These guys got it right.Once we lay it upon her then reveal ourselves.
conceal and speak. be friendly but figure out what is off.
leave her alone for nowshe doesnt seem to be immediate threat, we are familiar with her life force now abd can observe her the following day, for now we should concentrate on the book
>>23869905If she was as powerful as a Demon or Fae we would have sensed it.>>23869907seconding this
>>23869905She might be Fae blooded or something but we don't want to reveal our self.If the metal burns her and wakes her up, we'll have a repeat of the earlier problem.[x]Leave her for now. Read the book.
i find it funny that because shes a "young woman" we suddenly want to cover her with a nice tapestry, even though something is off with her
>>23869890>>23869893>Lay the Red Tapestry over herIt's a warn summer night. She's fine. Just leave her and read the book.We went through enough shit to get it. Let's not get side tracked now.We can check on her later if you want to.
>>23869907She seems like a lost soul taking refuge in our humble Church, as such she is part of our Charge.Thirding this.
>>23869907I don't know about talking to her, but laying the tapestry on her would be nice.
Kind of love that possible supernatural or not, you guys are choosing not to kill something just for exp.
>>23869907>reveal ourselvesWHY? Why do you want to reveal ourselves to a random stranger we don't know anything about.It's a warm summer night, she doesn't need covering up.Just let her enjoy her sleep and get on with reading the book.
[X] Leave her.There's no need to alert her to the fact that someone else was in the church by laying something over her.
>>23870026We didn't kill the Mermaid, yet. We have a rather simple flow chart that indicates if we murder something or not.
Lets say she's just a bit weird and isn't in cahoots with some evil force. If the priest wakes up and asks her why she took the tapestry down they're either going to fight or he'll believe her when she says she didn't take it down and they'll both get suspicious. Leave her and lets read the book already.
You stare at her for a few moments, and do not let the kindness in your heart get the better of you. Interaction with mortals is trouble after all.You leave and you sense that the woman's consciousness flickers, giving you pause, yet she remains asleep. You grab a candle from the altar and take a look at that mage's tome...There are no words upon the cover. It seems that the book is bound in leather..Opening the pages of the book, you cannot quite read the language or the flow that it is written in... However there are indeed pictures. The pictures show skeletons, removal of hearts, and on a dog-eared page, there is a depiction of a magic circle that seems to involve a skeletal man wearing robes with a halo.How... odd...> Destroy the book.> Stash it for later.> Return it.> Lay it upon the church's altar.> Other
>>23870104[X] Stash it for laterWe should try and decypher it later.Next lets go check up on Molli.Also where was our Exp put to Stone Mason? Or are we saving it for Soul Siphon?
>>23870104[X] Stash it for later.
>>23870104>[X] Stash it for later.Let's bury it.
>[X] Lay it upon the church's altar.>[Y] Lay it upon the church's altar.>[Z] Lay it upon the church's altar.It's it's bad, it will burn.
I saw a lot of Soul Siphons, so I thought you guys'd want to save it.
>>23870134I'm happy with either occasion really.
>>23870104> Return it.> Lay it upon the church's altar.oh one day someone will do one of these options serioustly
>>23870122>Next lets go check up on Molli.The only thing we'll do is mess with her head if she sees us.Head for the north of town and intercept the wizard. Trail him and see what else we can learn. If he returns to the mayors house we might be able to ears drop and learn something.
>>23870133assuming the alter has been consecrated by real holy magic.The priest is using dark magic for protection and healing so probably not.Skeletal man with halo could be angel of death?I would hide it and then check up on the mayor house.
>>23870104could we get a pen and piece of paper and write "property of evil mage do not take without permission or i will steal your soul >:(" and put it on the cover of the book and chuck it at the door of the guards barracks.
>>23870104[x] Stash it for later. Then intercept the wizard and follow him.See if we can over hear anything once he gets back to the mayors house. (assuming he returns there)
Tearing off a small piece of your cloak, you wrap the book up and put out the candle betwixt your marble fingers. Setting the candle back upon the altar, you place the book within your hiding hole beneath one of the floorboards.Leaving the church, you take to the sky and fly around the northern part of town, feeling for the man who had cast that strange life nullifying magic.You sense him a ways off. he had left in the late evening so he can't be making good time in his return. Heading toward the town square, you visit the mayor's house once more. You feel the presence of the same life from the previous night within, the one that had stayed at the church to mingle with the chatty women.Who could be in here? Are they involved with the mage that you had the... 'pleasure' to meet?What will you do from here?This person is sleeping.> Wait for the mage to return.> Abandon this lead for now. Check on other parts of town.> Enter the building.(Break in)> Other
>>23870297>> Enter the building.(Break in)

>>23870297[x] Enter the building.(Break in)ONLY if we can do so silently.If we feel him stirring GTFO before he finds out who was breaking in.Be sure to sense for the wizard. We don't want to lose track of time and get caught when he walks in.Check the basement and sub-basement if we can.
break inWe know of only 3 individuals able to resist the odd sleep that overtook the guards the other knight.The withering light mage, the priest blood-mage, and some person sleeping in mayor house. I bet the withering light mage is the mayor and the sleeping person is Victora Manse and is also a mage.

From the sky, you land upon the roof, taking care not to damage the tile.This house's roof is blue, and you see that it is definietly more well established than most of the houses in the town...And you're going to break in.You check around for a window and eventually do find one, however it is locked. you go from window to window between the roof of the house and the sides, finding none of the possible entries open except... The door to the cellar is open.Entering, you find that it contains many barrels upon wooden racks. nothing of particular interest or concern.roll 1d100 for investigation.DC 60

Rolled 23>>23870413Be sure to feel along the walls for a seam.If this door was left open, it may have been left for the wizard when he gets back.(I wouldn't want some fucker knocking on the front door in the middle of the night)
>>23870438Goddamn, why now,
You root around the cellar for some time, however it doesn't seem to lead anywhere, nor is there anything of interest here... You found a candle in which you read the names of different places that these barrels and their contents must be from.You found a ledger that contains the purchases.. However nothing stands out as... "suspicious"( Prefer to close it at a better time, but i'll be stopping here tonight to be picked up tomorrow at Next thread will be: Pacific time: 1800 6 pmServertime: 2100)(I'm also still drawing blanks on Fae/demon spell specifics. Will read this thread tomorrow in suptg... Oh, and I'll be here for a little longer if you guys want to talk.)
>>23870484Just wondering, what were those weird growths on the Troll?I had the feeling those were a trap and they'd burst and do something nasty if we attacked them.
>>23870484Did the animated gargoyle tv show from the 90's influence you any? Also what was the inspiration for the setting?
You should look specifically for a way to go deeper rather then doing general searching.
incase this quest turns into a campaign, do you have a wider backstory planned? or is it basically a 1 town only affair?
