Good Evening Gentlemen! I return to you again! <3And so, the story of our very dear murderous toy continues...Our very dear Akuma-chan... Now known as FaefnirForged out of a once-baker's soul named Claire... A pitiful woman that had been strangled to death by a beggar for her creation of love.Called back by her since child-hood friend, Jacob, that had always looked upon Claire fondly, oh so fondly..Once I granted the dear her body, she killed the man out of spite for turning her into a delightful monster!And so now, she wears his skin and kills humans in secret to spread the despair that gave her this wonderful second life!She has also continued baking bread. <3Welcome to the quest of the Akuma, Good Evening... <3This is the story thus far!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Akuma%20QuestThese are your current stats and abilities as of now!http://pastebin.com/CuLptHELAnd Something pertaining to your allies! <3http://pastebin.com/49TZ3QUnWith a mission granted to your little "Family" by your Dearest, Dandy and Diligently Dapper Doctor, you travel to the trading post of Ruinebriar in search of the missing members of the Noah clan...Upon the way, your family became a touch more acquainted with each other.Ivan and Armbrust take turns shooting wildlife on the road.Kama turns into "Mama Kama" for the new additions of Kralle and Wendel to the family. Two children that had once been brother and sister to Jacob, now murderous machines possessed by the souls of their dead parents.Also, Madeleine and Schrewe do what you might call bickering with each other... There was a bandit attack, though awfully short lived due to the bandit's "penchant" for misfortune.As always, the tale of our dearest Faefnir... Continues...
>Total Exp 190January 19thYour travels are unimpeded after that initial bandit attack... Everyone's gotten restless from the lack of humans, save for Schwere, Armbrust, you, and Ivan... Or perhaps the four of you just handle it a bit better.As you break the mountain pass you notice that the air is a bit... crisper here. Even despite the cold. It's the air of a mountain valley, and the settlement here is rather large, though without walls.You see that there are many residential houses set up, likely with some sort of tradesmen in each, or at the least owning or working another place for it. In the center you see something of a bustling market and a place that Schwere mentions, takes orders for goods and distributes those that come through..Some distance away, you see a few vineyards upon mountain's sides with rows of visible fence to prop up the vines of grapes..Within the town, much to your personal dismay, you find that Schrewe had been correct all along... as a merchant, your wares had been lacking.. You barely have anything for sale, with the need of space for the rest of them to actually sit comfortably.Then again, why are you so concerned with your potential wares? You had something to do here!. Besides, t's not like you're poor... Though you look poor... and bakers are often poor.. and your family was poor... and... Okay, you get it, you, yourself are a filthy poor shit.Maybe it's time to mend that? No! You're hear for something... You need to find the Noah, the Noah! There's likely one here... or maybe their isn't... Ugh, This search my take some time...A pair of boys run by, " let's go throw rocks at the Witch!"Well... There's a start...> The Noah search can wait, I must see about gambling.> Or performing... "Business."> We need to find a place to stay... (General idea)> Go shopping, you still have some funds left from your past winnings and looting of Temes.> (Other)
>>25457963I may make this the new OP picture...I kind of really like this...
>>25457964Oh, you notice that there is a river not far from this settlement as well. Boats pushing against the tides by oar and drifting down alike are seen. Suspect is that passage to Florin could be purchased or... "Acquired"
>>25457975I don't know what to say, my Duke!
>>25457964I vote we make some cash money and stop being disgraceful poor folk
>>25457964>[x] We need to find a place to stay... (General idea)Lets find a place to stay or establish a camp a bit out of town. Lets mix a bit with the local peasants and act like the merchants we are pretending to be. Lets keep an ear out for any rumor of supernatural events. We can also go exchange recipes with the local baker.
>>25457964Send off Ivan with the others to 'buy' a boat for us to stay in. We can go check out this witch and maybe even find a bakery.
>>25458134boathouse. I like your style
>>25458148That would actually be rather close to... Gypsies...Are you certain you'd like to take this very... "Low" road?
>>25458160what if we found some kind of yacht?
>>25458160you mean come of as dirty, evil, POOR Gypsies!? I think not, good sir.
>>25458199there are no yachts in the 1400's
>>25457964Hmm... Grapes. Perhaps we could make wine to complement our bread business? Also, the problem with poisoning the water supply was that humans would'nt drink dark water, but wines are most commonly dark..
>>25457964Let's go find out what this "Witch" business is.
>>25458214That is so. And ships take hands and expertise to handle... No seafaring Akuma as it stands...You also lack appropriate funds for something like that. A smaller boat would be affordable... though as I had said, it'd put you in the same class as the dirty gypsies... the most evil of all the poor..It's like they're poor, but then somehow aren't...
>>25458241because they took all your money when you weren't looking
>>25458114This will be the established camp if none other object or have opinion.The first activity after may be>Gambling/trading.>Making Purchase at the stalls.>Investigating this business about a "witch"
>>25457964do this>>25458134afterwords, have everyone find a subtle target to satisfy there "cravings" and possibly a job of some kind to gather info
>>25458266I'm okay with establishing camp first, and then going to find out about the "witch"
>>25458114>Mixing with peasantsHere comes a willpower check
>>25458266can we do this? boat can be camp>>25458275
>>25458266>Investigating this business about a "witch"Lets go investigate that witch with Schwere and Madeleine, as Schwere seem smart and knowledgeable and Madeleine will get jealous if we go anywhere with Schwere alone.>>25458283As long as they are not homeless vagrants, I think we can contain ourselves.
>>25458266>Investigating this business about a "witch"We will need to find something for everyone to do, so that their urges don't become trouble some. Maybe get a few of them into whittling.
Hmm, later on we should investigate the vineyards if they sell grape jam. Grape jam on bread is spectacular.
>>25458346Something profitable would be besttravelling salesmen/murderbots, it's the perfect crime!
>>25458266we should establish ourselves at the local bakery, wow the humans with our skill after we investigate witch and get the others situated
>>25458372We could probably sell their carvings.
>>25458387Maybe we shouldn't destroy this town then or we might get a reputation as a baking bringer of bad omens.
once we get the exp, we should really up our Leadership. we are the Good Doctor's favorite toy and it wouldn't reflect well on him if his toy couldn't even keep these akuma out of trouble>pic related, reminds me of Faefnir
>>25458423or attract exorcists, this is a widely known trading town
>>25458423"They say he bakes the best bread you'll ever eat, but not long after he arrives... weeeeeeeeeeird stuff starts to happen"Bam exorcist city
Ivan and Armbrust turn to you upon entering the settlement, Ivan's brow raises up from beneath his helm as he regards you,"Well then Comrade, we are here now. What will we be doing from here?"You peek out from the covered wagon and check around the town. Armbrust is in his passenger seat upon the cart as usual, staring forward and relatively stoic... though you can tell that among them, everyone aside from you and Ivan are hurting to keep themselves in check.The children's eyes are demonic as they try to keep from killing without your command. Schrewe has finished reading her book and she's relentlessly bending the spine, her eyes changing slightly as well.. Madeleine appears to be about ready to tear her skin off with all the humans about.. and that might just be literal...Kama, likewise with the children is shaking, her fingers shifting slowly into sickles.Your own heart wavers... you haven't baked or killed in some time... This lul is getting to you, despite it not showing."Ivan, we need to set up camp... Outside of this town..." He whisper to the man, wearing guard attire.You turn back to the Women and children," Control yourselves for a while longer. We will kill soon enough."Kama stares at you, her eyes dilated into slits," Faefnir... They're right here... We can kill them all... There's so many of them and we... we are so strong... Simple... So simple.."Schrewe shudders at the words," S-she is... she is right... I ... I could just crush them...""Silence." Your voice carries along the air, a command, yet it only truly affects the children. The women stare back at you."Ivan, turn the cart back.""Will do comrade."The horses pull the cart away from Ruinebriar and the other demons seem to calm down a bit, though the children still have the worst of it, and Kama holds them steady, shushing them even as she herself trembles. She's become more and more motherly with this trip and those two clinging to her.. You notice...
>>25458445Yeah, lets try to not attract too much attention in this town for the time being. That mean no murder of citizen or tourist and absolutly no arson.
You relax as well... the scent of peasants leaving your nostrils. Without kills or something to occupy the family, it will be difficult for them to blend in without going berserk... It'll need to be you or Ivan... and the family needs to be sated somehow...>You or Ivan. One must stay to watch the family.>Seek out the Witch the children had mentioned.>Draw out some prostitutes or other targets to the camp..> Seek out employment within the town.> (Other)For the Family> Hunt the woods for victims.> Make farmhands go missing.> Attack people coming in from down the road.> (Other)
>>25458554We should decide now if these akuma are our loving family or disposable pawns.
>>25458634Loving family, but sometimes we will need to dole out some tough love to keep them in check.Ivan keeps an eye on the Family, we'll go into town.>Seek out the Witch the children had mentioned.But keep an eye open for any bakeries that are around, we could pay them a visit and bake some bread, make it a contest of our baking skills.For the Family[X] Hunt the woods for victims.Keep it quiet for now, woods should be subtle enough.
>>25458616let's leave Ivan and go investigate this Witch. and let the family hunt for victims in the woods.
>>25458554>Seek out the Witch the children had mentioned.With Schwere and Madeleine as backup, for reasons I mentionned.For the Family:> (Other)They should try to find people whose death won't be noticed. Incoming and leaving travellers and vagrants probably.
>>25458554I like it how Kama is actually going along with playing the mother role.she is a dedicated actress.
>>25458616>Ivan stay>seek witch and a Bakery, check for other jobs the others may be able to not screw up and blow cover while doing>have them scour the woods for now, as well as down the road. try to push more people towards town
>>25458709If there already is a bakery, wouldn't that mean we have to open a rival bakery?
>>25458634family, which is why we need to keep them busy after they kill and upgrade leadership when possible so there are no....accidents
>>25458758or simple buy/gamble it for ourselves
>>25458554also, It seems to me that Schwere has points invested into personality, with her quirk being reading.maybe find some books for her
>>25458785Maybe a bible? huehue
>>25458616lets all remember the Good Doctor requested we be subtle, and we wouldn't want to disappoint our Good Doctor would we?Ivan stay and take the family to search woods/road for easy/quiet kills.We will search for info on witch and a bakery where we can work/gain info on the town subtly
>>25458785From what I can see:Kama has a motherly personalitySchwere is an avid readerMadeleine want male attention (preferably ours)Ivan acts like a russian soldier.The kids and armbrust don't have much of a personality yet.
>>25458871exactly what I figured, we need to play these quirks to our advantage when keeping quiet and hidden
>>25458871All topped off with a bit of bloodlust
"Ivan, you wave the man over as you, he, and Armbrust finish setting up camp."Yes Comrade? What is the matter?" He strides on over around the arrangements of a burgeoning campfire, more for appearances."I'll be going into town to check for rumors and see if I can't get a job. Anything that we can pick up here will help the cause.. While I'm gone, take them out to hunt in pairs. Go for the woods, and past the bend in the road, out of sight of the town. You're a smart guy, no evidence."Ivan nods, a bit faster than you would've liked," I've been getting that itch too... not as bad as the others yet..."You raise your eyebrow," Yet?""What of you comrade? Surely you would care to hunt?"You put a hand up," No, The family is more important. I'll be fine so long as I can get back to baking.""As you say comrade.." Ivan throws his hands over your shoulders and kisses the air by each of your cheeks. "Be sure to come back well. Monsters other than us hide among men you know."You smile at that, the exorcists," Well, they're a lot more obvious that us. Disgusting pigs."You leave the camp behind and make way into Ruinebrair...- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Roll 1d100
Rolled 74>>25458979Saying that an akuma has a violent personality would be a bit of a Pleonasm.>>25459013Devil's luck on?
Rolled 32>>25459013I'd say devil's luck ON
>>25459036Always assumed. Unless someone explicitly states otherwise.
>>25458871>Madeleine want male attention (preferably ours)Can Akuma have Waifus?
It takes little time for you to find the source of this "witch" business. There is a woman in the town Square, a woman bound by Mage's Stocks. Her hair black and long, obscuring her face. She wearing nothing but rags as part of her punishment... There's feces, rotten food, and more stuck to her stocks and her own body. Two men in shining silver armor stand at either side of her. Occasionally a passerby will add onto her shame with a stone or similar disgusting projectile.You manage to keep yourself under control for simply walking about, though sniffings of poverty prove to enrage you somewhat...Passing the witch, you find a building of stone, with a sign that says "Bakery" outside.Upon entry you see a man rolling out dough upon the table and he looks to you with a nod before looking back down upon his dearest creation of love... This is a man that you can certainly respect... He's big, a touch burly and wears a modest apron. There's a woman and a young girl that work with him past the counter, taking bread out of the oven, moving flour, dragging buckets of milk, water...This is the lovliest establishment you've been in since... well... your own... This is the homiest Bakery you've seen as well... far more family-oriented... It's good to be somewhere of purpose again."What can I get for you, stranger?" The man's voice carries across the room like crisp bread."Oh, I... well, I'd like some bread. And if you need an extra hand."The man leers at you," I can give you the first thing.. though I'm not sure of the second. You bake bread before?"With a nod, you answer the man," Yes, I baked bread in my own bakery even.. I took over it after my dear friend passed. it was the best bakery in Temes.""Is that so?" The man seems skeptical. "Let me see your hands.. if you've got baker's."You hold out your hands and the man touches them," Seems more like you've got Farmer's hands.. How long you run that Bakery for?"
> Tell the truth.> Lie> Actually, nevermind, this was a bad idea.> Kill him and his family.> (Other)>>25459291Yes, they can as they develop further. However I'll make it a point now.1. I will not let it sidetrack the rest of the quest.2. There will be no plot armor for any of the Akuma.
>>25457963Oh hell yiss.>>25459291Krory and Eliade.>>25459295Some convincing may be in order...
>>25459317>1. I will not let it sidetrack the rest of the quest.>2. There will be no plot armor for any of the Akuma.good and fantastic>>25459321I've never read.... whatever series this is based on>>25459317>truthbut with the location edited.
>>25459291There are cases of akumas falling in love I think, but lets not delves into that. >>25459295That bitch is asking for it, lets have a bake off with him. We can casually ask while showing our awesome baking skills what is the deal with the lady in the stock outside.
Rolled 100>>25459295I think we found ourselves either a Noah or a potential Skull.
>>25459317"I was a farmer for a long time, my dear friend was the baker, I watched and learned from her for a long time, but spent more time in the fields.After her passing not too long ago I devoted myself to baking, but the callouses of farming do not go away easily.I only ask that you allow me to bake a single loaf before you judge me."
>>25459363the dice have spoken, and we turned devil's luck off last thread so whoooo
We still need to upgrade those pressure cannons, and practice using our gravity control. I was thinking that we can compress large amounts of our blood with gravity and either disperse it quickly in a large area or heat it and use it as pinpoint explosives.Goodness though, we're going to need to up our killing quota if we're to get all the experience we need.
>>25459363Oh oh oh, that reminds me.Do we know about Noah's stigma? If so, lets check her forehead.
>>25459363whoops. forgot the dice.IGNORE THE DICE, THEY MEAN NOTHING
>>25459317>>25459364this is perfect>>25459363>WHELP
>>25459317If he needs convincing, a demonstration may be in order.>>25459356Ah, well then. Eliade is an Akuma who fell in love with Krory and decided to alter the way she interpreted her orders so that she could stay with him.>>25459376Devil's Luck is assumed on. And no roll has been called for yet.
>>25459317I was a farmer before that, I grew wheat with my family. Even though my time as a baker is admittedly short, my passion for it remains strong.
>>25459410i know, just whoo 100. but seriously it was a reminder, it was turned off and never turned back on so we may want to change that
>>25459317>Yes, they can as they develop further. However I'll make it a point now.>1. I will not let it sidetrack the rest of the quest.>2. There will be no plot armor for any of the Akuma.I say if she wants to be all waifuy then sure why not? not saying that we'd even return these feelings wholeheartedly, but we do "love" our family the Doctor gave us to watch over
>>25459360YES TO BAKE OFF
>>25459468>which anon just explicitly stated....
>>25459388The Doctor had mentioned the stigmata upon the head... however you didn't get close enough to check.
>>25459317[X] Tell the truth.The bread is so near, yet so far. We must not let this chance slip away.
>>25459493let us have a bake off and ask about the woman in the stock
>>25459501Then I'd say theat upon leaving the bakery, we check her forehead under the pretense of spitting on her forehead and insulting her.
>>25459546but what if she is a Noah? we can't show such disrespect to a Noah!
>>25459531Oh wait, I have the most wonderful idea. Lets have the guards be the judges of our bake off. It will give us an excuse to get near them and check the witch out.
>>25459546We could just say we think she's pretty
>>25459584Are we going to use our 'special' bread?
Rolled 36, 89, 96, 4, 86 = 311>>25459585Bad idea
>>25459605Nope. For normal humans it tastes like despair, well it tastes like despair to everyone, Akuma and Noah just like the taste. We're trying to win the contest here.
>>25459619We could give the witch a bit of our special bread. It only tastes like despair to normal human. A Noah may enjoy it.For cover we can say that the bread is stale and mouldy.
It may be best to wait until we have the cover of night before interacting more closely with her.
>>25459661the bread is black. we could say it's burnt bread.
While we're in town we should also get some books, and find the slums of the area. Those urges won't be restrained forever.
>>25459661Assuming she's a noah, and why would the guards let us give her brad anyway?
>>25459714Torturing someone doesn't really work if she passes out from hunger.
>>25459714>>25459696>>25459661say its our punishment, that we want to watch this sinner eat our burnt bread
>>25459704they will once we make that sweet sweet bread
>>25459732Still, I don't think they'd let a stranger feed the (potentially dangerous?) prisoner
"I was a farmer before that, I grew wheat with my family. Even though my time as a baker is admittedly short, my passion for it remains strong... My dear friend was a baker and I learned all that I know from her.. however I did spend time with a hoe in the fields." The man raises an eyebrow at you, appraising. Telling the truth seems to be easier, even as an Akuma... "If you want to see my skills, I could of course bake for you... A single loaf, take my payment as a forward on it.The man smiles and gives you a nod," Alright, so it'll be. Get an apron and flour your hands, show us what you've got!"You flour your hands and mix together the flour and water, adding in a bit of sugar and salt.You get the composition just right with the added flour and leave the rest to the side, kneading the established dough on the floured counter, as the man seems to approve, you turn your head to him and smile," Say, why don't we turn this into a bakeoff? The guards by the Stocks judge."The Man chuckles," I suppose if you'd like for a bit of sport. Though Sir Asher and his brother are not to be bothered with. They guard the apostate without distraction.The man begins to mix his own dough as you make conversation, thoroughly kneading your own,"Apostate? First time I think I've heard of that...""Not many do.See, most sorcerers and sorceresses are licensed by the church. Those that don't bear their blessing and carry on with the practice are branded apostates. The woman awaits judgement by a High Priest of the church. She's kept here until then."You await for your bread to rise,"So, why do you know such things?" You smile, disarmingly.The man shakes his head, a touch solemn," When these things are brought to your doorstep, you tend to learn of them... Oh, and My name's James Bool.">How will you introduce yourself?
>>25459776Lets introduce ourself as Jacob Creutzfeldt, baker from Temes.
>>25459825>Olivander Flameschildwe had an eccentric ancestor....
>>25459776Introduce yourself as Bekan Rye.
>>25459776Jacob Firebrand.If someone can be named Godschild, we can be Firebrand. Which fits what we are perfectly.
>>25459825You're the kind of kind who finds the devil going by the names Louis Cypher to be clever aren't you?
>>25459856i like this
>>25459856Sounds good to me. Switching from>>25459844 to this.
>>25459884Lucifer, gentleman.>>25459856It shall be. Carrying on.
>>25459856We should be Jacob something at least
>>25459884Cypher implies that the name is a code. And while I don't know what it means, I assume the name "Louis Cypher" somehow translates into a name for the devil.
>>25459856Switching my vote to this.>>25459918So the guard probably won't accept our bread?No one can deny us like that.
>>25459946All shall experience our loaves. None shall be spared.
>>25459925Say "Louis Cypher" out loud, rather quickly
>>25459960>All shall experience our loaves.Our new catchphrase
>>25459948>>25459977Too late, guys.>>25459935It's made me incredibly pissed off.
>>25459871i get what it means, i just don't think that's clever at all. those kinds of names are just too obviously fake
>>25459776Resident Exorcist, reporting. Introduce ourselves as Jacob Firebrand, I saw that in an earlier post and quite like it. >>25459925Louis Cypher. LouisCypher. Loucypher. Lucifer.
>>25460014It managed to fool me for a good long while.
>>25460018Yes, yes, I got it. The cypher is the sound.
"Jacob Firebrand" You extend a floured hand and the man takes it with his own. His hands are warm. Almost warmer than yours. Warm hands are good for bread."Good to meet you, Firebrand. That's indeed the name of a Farmer... more like a rancher's though. In the family?"You shake your head," Family's mostly dead, not sure if it is."The man frowns,"Shame to hear that. I won't ask anymore."It takes some time but you begin to work up a rapport with the man as you finish baking the bread. Both of the loaves are out and on the counter to cool."Well, I must say you've done a fine job... smells wonderful as well. I'm sure you know what your own bread tastes like, so let us swap breads and judge based on men in the same profession, hm?"> Agreed.> Agree, but claim your superior at any rate.> Refuse, offer another solution.> Kill him and his entire family.> (other)
>>25460093[X] Agreed.Settle down urges. We'll be killing soon enough once we find the slums. After all the night covers all.
>>25460093>[X] Agreed.If there is one thing we can be honest about, it's bread.
> Agreed.we can admire a superior baker. Its good to have a rival.
>>25460093Agreed.I WOULD say some sort of trickery should be involved, since we are, you know, an Akuma. But this is baking. Bread. Against another baker. This is one of few times (outside dealings with Noah and the Doctor) where we will stand as a man of honor and humility.
>>25460093>> Agreed.we don't need to insist superiority, this is an honest contest between bakers
>>25460093>> Agreed.Also, lets ask him for his recipe.If we end up killing him later, his recipe will live on with us.
>>25460140>and his ashes will make such delicious breads for our family
>>25460120>>25460128>>25460133>>25460140Unanimous... How... Honest...
>>25460124*Akuma Quest turns into Baking Quest where we travel around challenging other bakers to bakeoffs and having innocent bystanders REACT to the taste of our delicious bread*Our dream is to create a bread that embodies the Akuma culture. YAKITATE AKUMA!
Hey Duke, do you remember this feller? He had his natural akuma instinct suppressed by innocence but only in a certain area or something. Will we come across any special innocence like this?
>>25460205Perhaps.>>25460176That just tickled my funny bone. Yes, indeed there's been quite a bit about baking... Faefnir is definitely at home!
>>25460165Can we make cookies with our internal oven or other fancy pastries?
>>25460205Traitor, he is a traitor to the Earl. We shall not suffer any who do such things to live.>>25460165We like our bread.
>>25460248Yes, though you do not yet know the "recipe" to do so. It's a magic oven after all.
>>25460248Our only real recipe is our Black Bread.>>25460205It's been a few years since I've watched the anime. What was the innocence that did this HORRIFYING thing to our fellow Akuma?
>>25460255We like it even better when others are eating our bread.
>>25460255But he would go to his home every night which happened to be outside the area of effect. He would ravage the surrounding towns at night and have a solid alibi. Kind of a spoiler..
>>25460289I believe it was a stained glass window in the church.
>>25459317>>[X] (Other)Challenge this pompous fool to a bake-off. We will show him our worth!
>>25460270What level do we need to be at for croissants?
You nod to the man. You'll be honest with him... This is a matter between bakers after all.The two of you exchange loaves... you note that his is a touch rounder and longer than your own, that maintains a loaf shape. You bite into the bread and it yields a crisp crunch upon the outside, yet remains fluffy and soft on the inside as opposed to your own fluffy loaf.It's crisp and has the distinct taste of recently milled wheat with whole grains still present within. You look to the man and furrow your brow... You really like this bread... Your memory bakes had no record of a bread made such as this... it's very much like a french loaf but so... thin.The man eats your own bread and you attempt to read the expression in his face even as he reads yours.After you both swallow the first bite, he chuckles a touch," Like it don't you? I learned it from a french sailor. They call it a Baguette. Your bread... it is very traditional and near perfect, however I do not think it can be properly compared to this other recipe.You nod and stare at the baguette," I like it.. I like it a lot. Seems that it would be great for a beef stew..."James chuckles at you," Let us call this a draw. There need not be a winner after all. You are welcome in my bakery. I will pay you for the work you pull, hm? "You smile, you've got yourself a new haven..."I need to tell my family the good news, I'll be back here in the morning, before the break of dawn, yes?""Indeed, seems you've already got the baker's sleep!" The man laughs and you leave his establishment...It is now the afternoon.Where to now?> Return to the family.> Check the woman in the stocks.> Seek out taverns for gambling and rumor.> Kill everyone.> Go shopping.> (Other)
>>25460270sooo, do we get more recipes automatically some how, or do we just need to spend time experimenting?
>>25460446Experimenting and leveling the ability!
>>25460438[X] Check the woman in the stocks.Investigation time!
>>25460438Go to the taverns. Get information.It'll be better to approach the woman at night, when there are less witnesses, and the pack can take care of themselves with Ivan around.
>>25460438Check the woman in the stocks.
>>25460438>>[x] Check the woman in the stocks.Lets also prepare a bite of our special black bread just in case.
>>25460438>> Check the woman in the stocks.bring her some bread>> Go shopping.try to find some basics for the family, stuff to help with quirks, stuff to make us look more "human", maybe some craft tools for Ivan and Armbrust
>>25460438[X] Seek out taverns for gambling and rumor.Though I am tempted to kill the town, we must at least pretend to be sane. When we do find a tavern get into a fight and lure someone away. We'll feed the black bread to the two guarding the woman in the stocks.
>>25460438>> Seek out taverns for gambling and rumor.We have the promise of a regular wage. Now we might as well gamble in a few seedy joints, and make some proper winnings.If folks get mad, we get killy (or, better yet, abduct a few poverty-stricken mongrels and bring them home for the family to play with).
>>25460438Go to the taverns to seek out potential targets
>>25460511this, but check woman at night>>25460523>>25460438
>>25460438>GamblingWe investigate the poor witch at night. Kill a few guards, check for stigmata. For now it is time we attempted to remedy our disgusting and hateful status as a poorfag.
A touch of note here...I'm observing Hollow Quest between posts as I wait for votes to come in... and I am quite glad that the people participating within this thread are typically quite agreeable. Granted the sever paranoia from the other night as to random generals.... It's been quite nice playing with you all!Just thought you should know that! <3
>>25460612Genocidal urges and baking will do that.
>>25460612My dear duke, thou art too kind
>>25460586Isn't gambling best done at night? People work during the day usually.>>25460612Thank you darling Duke for providing us such an agreeable roleplaying experience!
>>25460612Thanks, Duke.Also, the exp costs for the Maw upgrades are still missing.
>>25460612Of course Good Doctor, your favorite toy only seeks to grant your wishes
>>25460651There will be a few chronic gamblers around, at least.
>>25460612We're good people who are quite understanding. We seek to do your good work. The generals are merely something in the back of our minds. We know they're around, and that they are a wandering menance, a blight upon this Earth that must be removed. If only the shitstains weren't so hard to get out in the wash...Truly they number amongst thy greatest foes, but don't worry. We'll get to Level 4 as fast as we can so we can destroy them for you. Your favorite Akuma aims to be nothing less than the very best Akuma it can be!
>>25460744We should also become the spookiest Akuma we can be
>>25460847lets not forget lvl 3 and 4 are uniform designs
>>25460870Duke already said that would not be the way it is in this AU, same as level 1 isn't a big gun ball.
>>25460870Duke changed how Level 3 works in this story.Whether or not we get to Level 4 depends on how the plot develops.
>>25460612Ok hold up, out of character for a moment-Nigga let me tell you what makes this quest so good, what keeps me coming back. Your effort. No seriously. I see a fuckton of quests with FANTASTIC settings and characters, that fall flat when the author gets bogged down by their own ego. You don't let brown-nosers get to you, and you continue to provide a quality entertainment.
>>25460679http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mSiYM1BF8EObligatory. Devil's Luck might let us take on a dude like the guy in the link. The link is, of course, a master's course in the art of bluffing.
You make way for the nearest tavern, finding one right down the street from the stocks in the square.It's called, "The Briar's Hearth" As good a place as any you figure.You enter and are immediately greeted by a warm fire within that wards off the cold, a few of the likely town drunks at the bar getting hammered, and not by way of the smith... Worthless men... The kind you enjoy killing most...There's a lonely man with a cup and a pair of dice at the table closest to the fire.You disregard him for now and order the wine this place is known for."So, barkeep, what's the word on the countryside?" You ask the man. He's not Fredrick though... you liked Frederick.. Doctor bless that he's an Akuma now by the wish of some person... You liked Fred...The keep glares at you," It's extra if you want me to run my mouth. Not my job to inform all the ones that run on in through here. If you want that, talk to the women that harp all day long about the state of affairs." This man is definitely NOT Fredrick.. > Pay up.> Tell the man to sod off and join the gambler.> Try to get the drunks to follow you as you make your way out.> (Other)
>>25460946>> Tell the man to sod off and join the gambler.
>>25460946[X] Tell the man to sod off and join the gambler.We've found our first target. It's time for a repeat of our first time in a bar. While we're gambling offer the man some of our bread.
>>25460946>Be polite, said you just wanted to make conversation with the man. Then join the gamblers. Maybe THEY'LL be more talkative.
>>25460946>[x] Tell the man to sod off and join the gambler.Lets make the most of this. If we can make enough money we could buy items to trade and stuff to decorate our camp.
>>25460946Everyday er' everyday I'm Gam-bi-lin!
>>25460920>>25460744>>25460660I am touched by your words. I will only continue to do as I have done. <3>>25460653I believe I have fixed them.
>>25460946>>[X] Tell the man to sod off and join the gambler.Money makesfolks much more talkative. Gamblers seem like good company. At the very least, coin could work his tongueI was half tempted to vote for bringing the drunks home for takeout, but that could draw unwanted attention. We just murdered a village, we don't want to have more bait for Exorcists
>>25461091Yeah, let's be more subtle. It's only been a few days since the slaughter we caused back in that other town. We don't want to alert the Order to our current location.
"Well, I won't be paying for something that costs a man nothing.. Thank you for the drink, I'll be joining the gentleman by the hearth." You take your mug and shove off the stool, strolling through the warmth of the fire before taking a seat by the man with the dice.He smiles at you and grabs the dice, throwing them into an empty mug," What's your bet stranger? Even? Odd? How many ones, threes? Fives? Don't like them odds? Twos, Fours? Sixes? Or perhaps you're not feeling quite even with that drink?" The man runs his mouth and you swish your wine around."Your game is dice I see? First I've had a go of that. " You take a deep drink and place a silver on the table," All snake eyes.The man's smile turns greasy as he eyes your silver piece," Well, the man says we're going to have all snakes! Let's see." He throws the mug down and reveals the dice.Roll 1d100.
>>25461130Damn right we don't. That awesome, amazing little stunt of pure righteousness may have drawn in a hateful General to investigate. If he hears rumors about this place after viewing an eviscerated village guess where he's headed...I want them ever so dead but right now we're like a tiny little mosquito to them. Something annoying that is easily swatted and killed. We must live, evolve, and become the stuff of their nightmares. That is the goal after all.
Rolled 1>>25461227Rolling for gambling.
Rolled 65>>25461227Gravity control is a hell of a skill.
Rolled 99>>25461227rolling to lose all our money

Rolled 64>>25461271God Dam->>25461281Wait what?
>>25461271 1 in the first three.>>25461281So lucky this is 4th.Coincidentally... I suppose Devil's luck can't change the result when a crit and a critfail are rolled...
>>25461301Don't worry, only the first 3 are taken.But yes. Those were some amazing dice. If this were Ogre Civ, we'd all be going crazy right now.
>>25461281>>25461271Hail Satan, baby. Only the first three count.And the Devil Rides unless we request otherwise!>>25461275We're nowhere near upgraded enough, yet. Save that for one of the others
>>25461271See pick.>>25461281Damn you! But the nat 1 was first so lets hope the good Duke is merciful.>>25461308I'm part of another quest where a crit fail and crit success cancel if within the threshold. I wander what your policy is if such a thing were to happen here.
>>25461349My policy is that something amazing and awful happens at the same time. Otherwise, a touch of silliness.
>>25461381I knew there was a reason I liked you. The silly, it needs to be a part of any grimdark shithole like the D. Gray Man verse is. And what do ya know, the mangaka agrees! She made sure to put in some silly because she knew of the astronomical suffering quotient she put into her work.Truly my duke, you are a man who understands.
Rolled 8, 7, 12, 92, 64 = 183>>25461381What dice count?
>>25461437First 3 rolls. Best of 3, though he won't ignore crits it seems.
>>25461455What do you mean he won't ignore crits?>>25461308Are you speaking about this?He was basically stating this>>25461381The 99 doesn't count. He was just saying that if a crit and crit-fail were in the threshold, both would effect the outcome.
>>25461519If they happen they affect the outcome. We get two crits, good or bad, we will experience both. A crit fail and a crit success will do what he said. Something amazing happens while something likewise horrible happens at the same time.Crits, they fucking matter.
>>25461575They only count if within the first three. The post the Duke was quoting mentions "within the threshold".
>>25461575T-t-that's what I said.
>>25461575Why are you getting so worked up over this? So much anger. AND RUDENESS.Direct that towards our prey, comrade, not at one another.
>>25461614I believe that was implied my good anon. That's what I was talking about.
The man raises the mug and his jaw drops when he sees that all of the dice are indeed 1's... all 6 of them.You take a long draft of your drink and gesture to the man," Looks like I've called it. Say, with odds like that, isn't that a return of 6 pieces?" The man stares at you and grumbles, throwing 6 silver coins on the table."What do you say? double or nothing?" His mouth has that slimy look... his money is ill gotten, you figure... he has the look and smell of poor upon him...You'd normally not consider this ploy, yet you shrug," Aye, double or nothin and you tell me what th' keep over there could 'ave." The man collects the dice and shakes them again," What's this time? Surely you won't call all 1's again, eheh...""Nah, All 1's an' they'll be stacked, much like a tower." You chuckle at the man, though you know the thing that watches you... highly enjoys these games... With a nod you confirm you bet, but make an amendment," If I win, you pay the double. And you come back to my camp and entertain my sweetheart, what do you say?"The man pauses for a moment," What kind of entertainment?""Oh, you know, a toss in the hay. He likes it with two men, saucy tart. Figure she might have a fancy for a man of games like you."The man throws the cup down, yet you feel a sudden shadow pass that makes the man breath cold. "W-what was that?""Likely the wind, it's quite cold out there you know. Lift the cup, she can't be wait'n all day."The man removes the mug, and just so. The dice are stacked perfectly into a tower, all sides facing up."What in the-""And there it is. The impossible occurs. Pay on up you rubbish, we've got a lady to impress."The man slides 12 silvers across the table yet he doesn't look all that defeated. The prospect of sharing a woman must excite him."Let's get on with it. Keep, your money's on the table. Find a couple ways to sod off with it." You call as you leave the bar with the gambler, the keep says nothing in return as you leave.
>>25461271We roll eight sixes and the bar explodes.
>>25461635Ah, my mistake then.
>>25461654>She* likes it with two men, saucy tart
Rolled 4>>25461654Do I sense a (n incredibly twisted and horrifying) romantic dinner with Madeline?
>>25461633I fail to see how I'm being angry. Just explaining the situation.Trust me, our prey will rue the day they crossed our path. Unless they happen to be bakers. We kill them last. It's only fair. Bakers are the very best people. It is a tragic day when they die. It is why we leave survivors, so these glorious souls can be made into Akuma by the ever so good and righteous duke. Hell, we even like them if they're poor because such is the glory and righteous JUSTICE that is Baking!
>>25461720The Devil continues to shower us with his favor.
The man comes on out with you, shivering a bit in the cold and pulling his coat over himself.Well, you've got a possible bit of prey now... and the evening's begun to come around...> Check the woman.> Return to camp.>[X] Shops are closed> Kill everyone.> Burn this place down.> (Other)>>25461720that was a d20 sir...
> Return to camp.we have dinner to prepare.
>>25461750Let's get back to camp.And talk with the man on the way. Let's get to hearing about these rumors before we throw him to the lion.
>>25461750didnt mean to roll, Valk mercs quest uses d20's sorry.>Return to camp
>>25461750[X] Check the woman.Offer the man some bread along the way, and who knows he might be talkative since he expects to get lucky.
>>25461750>>25461750>>[x] Return to camp.We will check the woman later tonight, but we should hurry, I don't want to meet that church fellow that will come to punish her.Lets return to camp with the takeout we got from the bar.
>>25461750Check the girl, people should be going home and holing up for the night. We only need to check her for stigmata after all. We can throw something at her hair and get a quick glimpse of the forehead without really tipping off the guards.If we see them, we know. Wait until dead of night and CHOMP the guards. Then free her as we kneel before another agust and righteous soul!
>>25461575Basic mechanics:To resolve stuff, we roll 1d100. The Duke compares to a hidden stat sheet.Normally, ranges 1-5 are critical failures and 95-100 are critical successes.Devil's luck just alters the crit range. 1-5 become critical successes, and 95-100 become critical failures (even though everything else remains constant, e.g. a 6 still counts as a failure and 94 still counts as a success.)>>25461750>>[X] Check the woman.We might as well get a bit of intel. We bested a weak human in a bar and lured him to his well-deserved doom, wwe probably have ebough of a rush to endure any negatives encountered by interacting with this filthy poverty-stricken excuse of vermin
>>25461750[X] Check the woman.Check on her before we head back, maybe crack some jokes about her with the gambler as we get close, check for stigmata.
>>25461750Check the lady
>>25461271ha ha>>25461281thank god you type slow
The checks have it... Hmmm...
>>25461750It just occured to me we can both check the lady and get to camp at the same time using the plan laid out by >>25461822Also better as, if we see them glorious stigmata, we can bum rush the guards with the whole family. EXP for all!
>>25461902Is her skin a dark greyish pigment?
>>25461911That's too obvious. More guile, less brute force.
>>25461923They can negate that trait at will. The Stigmata, not so much I think. Especially if they are only freshly awakened.
>>25461923If she could assume her Noah form, she wouldn't be in stock anymore.
>>25461956Depends on the kind of Noah they are. People like Tyki Mykk and Road yeah. Not all Noah are combat monsters. Some are more support type and even then you have to consider those damned exorcists. They can still brutally murderize you because you are especially vulnerable to innocence weapons. Going all brute force might be a bad idea, especially if one is in the area. And well, you're in stocks and nobody is talking to you.No, keep head down, endure, and pray for the Akuma to find you and get you out of this shit. If she is a Noah she's being smart. Only going to go balls out if about to be blasted by innocence.
>>25461947We should see what's going with her either way.
>>25462022A Noah wouldn't necessarily know who they are. Remember Skinn Bolic? He was constantly in pain because of his Noah memory, but didn't understand why until the Earl approached him and explained everything.Afterward, he got his grey skin, so we can presume that a newly awakened Noah only experiences the stigmata and a little bit of their inherited memory before they awaken completely to the gene.
"So, where are we going?" The man huddles his hands into his body beneath his jacket, looking at you expectantly."We'll be going to the outskirts of town. My camp is there. However first, I'd like to check up on the woman in the stocks..." You mumble to yourself as you take the lead, the man staying behind a moment before puruing."Hey, why do you want to deal with that apostate whore? She's all filthy, let's leave the church t'deal with her. Them brotherly guards won't be letting you close anyhow, or you gon' be throwing things at the witch then?""Sure, I'll be throwing things at her. Say, would you like some bread? baked it myself..." You offer the man some of your blackbread and he turns his nose up at it."What in heavens is this? It's all black isn't it?""Secret family recipe. Lords and ladies have killed over this bread, and men are so moved they cry as they eat it.""Ahh, some sort of fancy, is it then? Well, I s'pose it does smell nice." You look away just as you hear the man begin to chew and his sobs start behind you. Hmm... what an odd effect... The family loves it... Heh..You see the woman once more in the stocks, markings upon it likely to restrict a sorcerer like herself. One of the two men in silver armor, upon closer inspection seem to have a cross emblazoned upon his armor... you know the marking... this knight is an exorcist... he's guarding this woman..You begin to approach and the non-crossed one calls out," Halt, in the name of the God. You may throw things upon this woman at your leisure however you may not approach by penalty of death in the name of the King Henry IV. State your business."You look at the night and then the woman in rags and recall the bite of the cold that others feel.. She must feel simply awful... A loaf of warm bread might do the trick... Though these men.."I am here to spit upon the woman in stocks. To do so I would need to get close, yes?" You try to play it off. The guard is unmoving.
"I have already stated. You may not have dealings with this woman. Cast your stone and other tokens of humiliation. None are to approach her."> Throw something...> Rightly sod off as the guard plainly stated.> Approach anyway.> Ask the guard questions.> (Other)
>>25462218>> Rightly sod off as the guard plainly stated.
> Throw something...a chunk of black bread. "As black as her soul. A loaf left too long in the oven."
>>25462218Throw some pieces of bread at her mouth.Also, idly ask the guard questions about the woman. How long has she been there? Why would she refuse to become a sanctioned sorceress for the Church?
>>25462218>> Throw something...Lets throw something at her head while shouting an insult to make her raise her head
>>25462218[X] Ask the guard questions."I know not what crime she has committed, but what could make the girl deserve such treatment?"And get her to open her mouth, probably by throwing something at her, and throw a chunk of bread in.
>>25462248Good idea. I support this.
>>25462218Ask to woman to look at us with a kindly voice, and then try and toss a piece of bread into her mouth.
>>25462248>>25462267excellent idea. it should be quite taisty to a noah, I would think.
>>25462178>Exorcist kinghtwe're fucked
>>25462315and we have a pack of akuma lvls 1, 1.5, and 2
>>25462218Feed the guards some of our bread. Say that they must be tired.If they start crying in despair, we can use that as an opportunity to approach the woman.
>>25462329if they have Innocence, it may react to the dark matter in our bread
>>25462315You see an enemy. I see food for our family.
>>25462329I vote against giving EXORCISTS any of our bread, because it might tip them off because it's made of FUCKING DESPAIR, TORMENT, AND DARK MATTER!
>>25462315If he's alone and we get the drop on him, we can probably take care of him, unless he's a general, which is unlikely.
>>25462315>>25462329Oh.I missed this.Ignore my suggestion. An Exorcist would probably be a bit resistant to the despair our bread.
>>25462309Oh it is, the good duke even commended our superior baking skills!So yes, chuck some of our dark matter bread at her, hopefully giving us a glimpse of her forehead. Gotta check for them stigmata. She has em' and likes our bread? WE HAVE A WINNER!!! Definitely a Noah. Gotta save her.
>>25462347we have the family draw his attention, fly above him and swallow him before he can even look up
>>25462361we should find out if she's poor first.
Womething has just occurred to me: how will we contact the duke when we find a noah? Will he just show up? Like in the same way that he knows to show up when someone's ready to make a new akuma?
>>25462393doesn't matter if she's poor, a noah is a noah
>>25462361We're going to have to trick her into opening her mouth first.
>>25462373Making an Exorcist disappear on the same day the witch in the stocks does?Not subtle at all.
>>25462416the Good Doctor always knows when his toys have done a good job and loves to congratulate them personally
>>25462416Not to worry. We need only begin the slaughter to make the good Duke appear.
>>25462420bow chicka wow wow
>>25462424did i say the same day? did i even say when? or did i just make a suggestion anon.
>>25462450Doesn't matter if it's the same day or not. That does not change what I said.
>>25462475so even in open combat? really?
>>25462450the only problem I see is that it puts our family in considerable danger, and it is preferable to avoid such things. I'd say we should gather more inteligence and set a trap for him, that is, if the "witch" is even a noah, and we need to dispose of the exorcist. If the witch isn't a noah... I'd avocate just leaving the exorcist alone. we don't have orders to kill any exorcists we find, and it would take time away from our search for the Duke's dear family.
>>25462511Anon, you're being combative and rude. Check your attitude.
>>25462514He has a point. We don't even know yet if shes a Noah for sake. Lets find out first then we can make plan to rescue her.Lets focus on finding out first.
>>25462218when we kill the gambler, can we just swallow him whole and bake him in our oven?
>>25462539unfortunately, no. we specifically gave up that ability in favor of having an oven. might try making a meat pie out of what's left over though...
>>25462528im not being rude and certainly not trying to be combative, my original suggestion was for an open combat scenario to which anon declared unacceptable in any situation. i only wish to know why he believes this
>>25462178>>[X] Rightly sod off as the guard plainly stated.We have a church Executor watching over what should be just a minor criminal. This is not something we should involve ourselves in without a plan and backup .Lead our happy victim home to our dearest lover. Then, we plan
>>25462593but when we killed our last exorcist, it was stated our mouth connected to our oven from the pieces we swallowed sliding down our throat to the oven. or was that not how it worked?
You tear off a chunk of bread from what your nameless "associate" has eaten and show it to the two guards,"Black as her soul..." You say, as you turn it over, regarding it," Left in the oven for a bit too long.""Take your aim as you'd have it." The non-exorcist knight looks to the woman," Someone has brought you food, whore. Raise your head and give thanks for it. Perhaps you can catch it in your mouth and won't eat shit like an animal." The woman does not move and the guard steps forward, grabbing her by the hair and pulling back," I said open your mouth."You see blood upon the woman's forehead, then again, there's a lot of blood on her face, likely from all the stones that the children threw. She doesn't cry, yet she doesn't open her mouth either.She looks out of it, eyes unfocused, tired. The cold's likely getting to her. She opens her mouth, yet she speaks instead," I am not a whore... My name.... is Morgan....La Fey.. My name... It's Morg-" The guard grabs her by the jaw and forces her mouth open.He looks at you,"Throw peasant."The display disheartened you not at all.. You take aim and throw pieces of the bread at the woman, her struggles to get the man off, quite weak.. You manage to get a piece in and it just falls. out of her mouth.Finally a crumb stays and you're out of bread."Done?"You only nod."Good" the guard shoves the room down and resumes his post..The woman begins to whimper and cry, unlike before, you swear that she whispers," It's... so good..."You think hard for a moment at the reaction... and look to your follower that happens to still be softly sobbing.Seems the disgustingly poor womab likes your bread... fancy that.> Go home as you had intended.> Attack the guards.> Claim the sobbing gambler as a hostage.> Burn it all down.> (Other)
>>25462613don't be condescending, rudeness on the internet is one thing but that's simply uncalled for
>>25462632You should re-read some stuff.Other anon was suggesting we cook them in our oven.What you just stated was us eating an Exorcist and using him as an ingredient.>>25462647Let's head home. Time to regroup.
> Go home as you had intended.we found her. now to plan her escape.
>>25462647DING DING DING.gentlemen, I think we found her.
>>25462647[X] Go home as you had intended.The night is still young, and the gambler still lives. Once their urges have been satiated we can begin with the attack.
>>25462647>> Go home as you had intended.Target Aquired
>>25462667I was calming you down, anon. You're pretty riled up (seeing as how you reacted to me with some hostility just now).Shhhhhhh,>>25462647Weren't we going to hear some of the local news and rumors from the gamler?
>>25462647> Go home as you had intended.She's a Noah. Lets go meet our family and plan something to free her.
>>25462647ask when she's to be executed.
> Go home as you had intended.
>>25462678so could we just eat him and then bake him in our oven? like not chew and simply swallow him
>>25462647[X] Go home as you had intended.We found her, now we have targets, we'll bring the Family down on them.
WAIT WAIT WAIT.I JUST HAD THE BEST IDEA.let's have Madeleine put on her seeker outfit and try having her ask the Exorcist some questions, with us hidden in the shadows.if things go south, we pounce and slaughter them as silently as possible
>>25462719let's try not to make a spectacle of killing the exorcist. this place is a trading town, and any rumors we inadvertantly start about ourselves are likely to spread far and wide.
>>25462647go home, i say before we break her out and leave we should add our poison to some wine. may take a long time before anyone opens the casks but could prove entertaining
>>25462667Please for goodness sakes calm down. The problem with attack the exorcist is that we are the only ones who are in town, and we have now way of knowing how many there are. Furthermore, we don't know when the church will arrive to judge the witch and how large a force they will bring.
>>25462729would she have enough will power to not simply attack the exorcist though?
>>25462729This could go horribly well or delightfully wrong
>>25462729>silentlyYou know that implies no chainsaws or lightning, yes?
>>25462717Re-reading the previous threads, we did NOT send the Exorcist into our oven. We simply took in the surrounding despair to create something.
>>25462764I think she has enough. she is a lvl. 1.5 after all
>>25462745This so much.Let's not go crazy-murder-happy in a well-traveled area, guys.
>>25462751i don't think anon 1 was even saying we should attack now, looks like it was a suggestion but whatever man.>this thread tonight i swear
>>25462647>>[X] Go home as you had intended.We go home and share the news, and the delicious gambler-soul!
>>25462776alas, I'm afraid you're correct.oh well, we can always try out our new pressure cannons and gravity magic.
>>25462790were you hear for the paranoia fest last time? it was worse than this.
We could also try turning the town against the church. If we make the church think they're harboring the witch they'll do what any zealot would do. Set fire to the place.Capitalizing on the chaos would be a simple matter.
>>25462729Yes, yes, that's a good idea.We can try luring him away by making believe there is an akuma hiding in the slum or somesuch.She could mention that she saw someone transforming in the slums, he looked like a tall man with jet black hair and a large scar on his face.
>>25462806Speaking of the Pressure Canons, the price for leveling them up seems to have disappeared from the pastebin sheet. Anyone remember how much it should cost?
>>25462778quest 4 post 2>You take in all of these things, breathing in deep and you open up your oven and pile the ash within high even as the flesh makes it down into your baker's heart.we ate the exorcist, his meat slides down our throat into the oven
>>25462839300? I think? not really positive.
>>25462809kinda go in and out depending on how quick the Doctor updates
>>25462839200 exp. Fixed it.I was in the middle of modifying it the other day and something went wrong and I lost my place. apologies.
>>25462847Oh, looks like I was right the first time. Never mind, then.
>>25462647We have a winner! Go back and discuss our findings with the fam fam. We have a Noah to save and an exorcist to kill. The Devil smiles upon us this night.Onward! We do the good Duke's work before the sun rises!Subtlely if possible of course. Trading town, rumors spread fast here. Must free her and be on our way before a General shows up. Noah can generally take them, generally. Guys like Cross stand a good chance against the Earl himself. Best not to tempt that kind of shitstorm if possible.
>>25462847Indeed. though it's not an oven that obliterates things. Max level Destruction Furnace would even obliterate innocence if you could withstand it.
>>25462871i figured, i couldn't think of how else it could work so i got confused
>>25462886Let's see if there's an opportunity to spirit the witch away before the High Priest comes to judge her.Better to avoid combat with the Exorcist, lest we draw attention to ourselves.
>>25462889of course, i simply was implying that it would be far easier in the future to bake if we can just swallow our ingredients directly from the mouth to the oven
>>25462886of course, it's kind of hard to tell exactly if we found it. let's ask our gambler friend what he thought of our bread. if he didn't like it, then we know for sure she's a Noah
>>25462889destruction oven was pretty nice but not quite us I think
>>25462930WuhIt's pretty obvious that he's in despair right now because of the bread.
>>25462889Will our oven ever be hot enough for.... LASERS?
>>25462943they could be tears of joy
>>25462889If we can withstand it being the operative phrase there. Glad to see we *can* destroy an innocence if we're powerful enough. Not going for that until it is indeed maxed out. In this world, even an AU, Innocence ain't nothing to fuck with. Plus I want maximum baking potential. If "destruction" cuts into our immaculate baking skills I'm against it. Innocence destruction is cool and all but first and foremost we are a baker. The very best baker this world has ever seen! To cut into that potential doesn't sit well with us.>>25462905I know. But they're worth so much EXP! Hard to turn that down you understand.
>>25462647simple way to solve this, come back another time and try with more bread. if she wants it that badly she's a noah
>>25462943but she started crying too. so, it's kind of a mixed result
>>25462967We don't have that ability, though. We chose Creation Oven instead.
>>25462959It's incredibly doubtful that's the case.
>>25462983our OVEN can't destroy Innocence, nothing saying we ourselves can get powerful enough to do that. heck, we can damage innocence now if our willpower stands up to it
>>25462987the possible noah shed tears of joy
>>25462982We know our bread causes despair.She said it tastes so good.We assume that she likes it. As opposed to the gambler, who hasn't bothered talking to us after he started crying.
>>25463006>>25462975this can solve this, we are the new baker. perhaps we'll see her in the morning and she'll ask for more bread
>>25463002He was talking about the gambler.
>>25463006while it caused him despair, he said NOTHING of the taste.
>>25463042this... is a point actually. we know that our bread causes despair in humans, but don't know whether or not it actually tastes good to them.
>>25463042That's....that's what I said.Our bread causes despair in people. Currently, I assume you're stating that they're both crying tears of joy. Because they're crying.And I'm telling you that one of them was able to comment on how they liked the taste while the other just seems to be a mess.Am I correct in my review of the situation?
I feel like we're all confused, and me trying to contribute while concussed isn't helping
>>25463068>>25463085come on, it won't take but 2 seconds to ask him how it tasted. seriously, it doesn't hurt to be thorough.no matter what he says, we'll still break the potential Noah out. we can't just let an exorcist live.
You usher your blubbering follower forth with you after leaving the woman to her tears and crumbs. You feel the penetrating stare of the guard burn into the back of your head as you head back to your camp...The man must be suspicious of you...You're curious though... the woman may very well be a noah if she enjoys your bread.. after all, the doctor does indeed.As the greasy, sniveling gambler blathers on, you touch his shoulder," Hey, was it good? The bread?"The man nods," It... it was... it was the best... best bread... I just... It made me so sad..." Rats... now you can't be quite so sure... You put a thumb against one of your human teeth... It's so very obscure... yet you get a strange vibe.. Morgan La Fey... - - - - - - -You arrive back at camp after calming down this nameless gambler... He's told you of the new king of the land, the old one being held captive near Leeds to the south and east. It's caused a turn in the land and a few lords have rallied recently, aspiring to seat King Richard back upon the throne, only to be put down in force... Seems events are turning in the world.. Aside from that, the word in town is buzzing with the approach of a high Priest... a saint as some people say...You wonder if holy men bleed red...Though you're certain that peasants do... and Madeleine is delighted by the "gift." The others turn away as the three of you undress in the bushes near camp for a "toss in the hay.' away from prying eyes.As soon as the man's upon Madeleine, she changes her arms and embraces him."All yours Faefnir, I'll hold this one still."Her voice is sweet and full of reverence...> Burn the man alive.>Shred him with your jaws.> Poison him.> (Other)
>>25463119[X] Burn the man alive.Let's use his ashes to try and make that bread we ate today.
>>25463110>>25463119Huh, yeah, looks like you're right.>>25463119Shred.
>>25463119[X] Poison him.Let him die slowly in her embrace.
>>25463158like I said, never hurts to check. now, after we deal with the gambler, let's talk with our pack and come up with a plan.
>>25463119>>25463181Well thats pretty much what I was going to suggest, so I'll go with this.
>>25463119Tell him to call dice for what body part he loses first.
>>25463119(assuming we're out of earshot from those who would find screams disturbing) shred him slowly, adding poison as we go to increase the agony. we need to eek as much enjoyment out of this as we can, since we may have to abstain again for a bit to avoid attracting suspicion.
>>25463119Bake him in your oven.
>>25463181Could always just shred off his arms and legs, cauterize the stumps and then gag him. A bit of poison and he'll pretty much be set to die and an Akuma plaything until then.>>25463219That is beautifully evil...
>>25463119close jaws on him, bring the heat
>>25463119In the name of the most holy Duke, PURGE HIM WITH RIGHTEOUS FIRE!!!Start down low, we'll roast his feet, then his manhood, then the rest of him. With a bit of poison of course. It ashes victims, best not to leave evidence of our most holy act.
>>25463228Our fangs are already coated in poison.>>25463219This. So much.
>>25463219I like this.Adding onto it, poison him first, it'll be slow, slowly, very slowly shred the limb that the dice call, like a wood chipper, start at the end and work our way up, and cauterize the wound so he doesn't bleed out.
>>25463231hehehehheheheI like that idea
>>25463231>Could always just shred off his arms and legs, cauterize the stumps and then gag him. A bit of poison and he'll pretty much be set to die and an Akuma plaything until then.>>25463219These so hard.
>>2546321910/10, would torture again.Give him a mild dose of poison, then do this. We get to try out our new poison trick, plus we get to havefun with this worm
>>25463306The burning poison trick?
>>25463320Is the poisoned individual's blood also flammable?
>>25463320yeah, that thing
let's keep the limbs, we can use some of him for experimenting with our recipes, try to come up with something that will sate (at least temporarily) the other's bloodlust.
>>25463320Whatever induces maximum suffering. We get bonus EXP for such things after all and the fam fam needs to sate their collective bloodlust.In doing so, they become more docile. Which is good, because we do NOT want them going berserk until we tell them to. Berserk Akuma attract exorcists. While they are great EXP too many of them will spell our collective doom. Can't have that.
>>25463320does our gravity effect poison? i can't imaging him trying again and again to run away but keeps getting heavier as the poison takes him
>>25463370>cani can imagine it
>>25463370crawl away. let's loose those legs.
>>25463370Gravity is currently too low for that special application.>>25463356Nope, just infected human.
>>25463356Oh, yeah.Literal fire in his veins.>>25463391Can we do that, Duke?
>>25463391damn, i can dream can't i.just go with the most satisfying option then
so let's distill this down shall we? First, we have him gamble to see which of his limbs he looses (untill they're all gone). As they're removed, we cauterize the stumps, so he doesn't bleed out. after he's limbless, we can gag him and the family can torment him at their leasure to sate their bloodlust (or help with it anyway). sound good to everyone?
>>25463391Well, we can always drip our poison into his mouth, then set him aflame from there.'Course, that would require kissing him.
>>25463472Eh, let's keep this guy for ourselves. The rest of the pack already went off hunting. We deserve a little R&R.
>>25463391whatever we do, I vote for using him to bake delicious bread for our family meal. the children will love it
>>25463477It's our blood, not our saliva. We can just open up a hand and let him burn from the inside out.
>>25463502but our pressure cannon is mouth based, we could "spit" into his mouth
>>25463502Wait, I realized we could just squirt it out from our pressure cannon.
>>25463513we also have one in our butt. I'll just leave that fact on the table
>>25463537If we had one in our eye we could literally stare him to death.
>>25463537Temporary Oil slick from Lv 1.5.. that's no longer there... Hmm hehe...
>>25463537>are you suggesting we sit on his face?not really, but that was a nice fact i was not aware of
>>25463537I thought when it was stated to be under our tail, the Duke meant under the tip. Because having it come out of our butt is ridiculous.'Course, as a Level 2, we only have the one Pressure Cannon coming out of our mouth.
>>25463558ah, i was not aware of that>>25463570we also have two in our wings.
>>25463537Frankly, I hope it never comes up to this.
>>25463581In every finger of our wings.Though I thought that was only for smoke and fire. It'd be nice to know if we can squirt ordinary blood-oil out of them too.
guys, the butt-pressure nozzle is gone. it was temporary.>>25463558
>>25463603We have wings? O_O
You put a bit from the horses into the man's mouth to sufficiently gag him and slip his dice out of his pocket, throwing them into a little cup.Madeleine holds the man steady with her imposing grip, the man looks on and struggles in horror."We're going to play a little game, you and I. A gamble if you would. Win, and you get your clothes back. Get them all and you get to go free. You hear? You're placing your bet with fingers first. We're starting with toes. Evens or odds?"A night full of muffled screams, burning flesh and the buzz of your chainsaw later, the gambling man no longer has legs, or his manhood for that matter. When it came time for that, Madeleine squeezed it off. Though the man was barely even conscious. A toy for the family for later... You remove his fingers as well, as he wont' be making bets anymore... <3You used ashes from the chunks of flesh to back that baguette that you observed... though you didn't get it quite right... The shape is there... but that crisp taste... It's lacking... it upsets you."Find anything good in the town Faefnir?" Kama asks, Kralle laying her head upon her lap and seeming to doze off. Seems everyone's calmed down sufficiently...You explain that you found a job a bakery in the town, the rude barkeep you'd like to set fire to that isn't Fredrick. Some of the others knew Fredrick, they agree, damn shame it isn't him. Ivan proposes a toast with Ale on hand to Fredrick, may he become an Akuma!After the toast you bring up the woman at the sticks that awaits judgement from a high priest," She was guarded by two knights, one an exorcist. I couldn't see a stigmata because of the blood on her... but hey, she's an enemy of the church, might be useful right?"
>>25463618Bro, our akuma form is a -dragon-
>>25463618Yeah. We can fly and shoot flames + poison smog out from them.
>>25463648I'll have to draw it into the picture for next time.>>25457963
Remember to loot his cash before we do anything.
>>25463639Indeed. It was made official that normal, everyday humans helped the Earl find new targets for Akuma generation. They called in, got a phat load of dosh, and helped to make new akuma. Why? Because humans are bastards. Bastard covered bastards with bastard filling and a crunchy bastard core.
>>25463639Lets formulate a plan to rescue her with the family.I'd say we rescue her tonight. We can have Ivan and Armbrust attack from affar while we sneak behind them to rescue Morgan. We could also try to poison their food and attack tomorrow night instead, hoping they will be weakened by the poison. They probably won't notice the pentacles because of their full body armor.
>>25463639"She said my bread was good, if nothing else she has better taste than any human"
>>25463639while formulating a plan, is poisoning the wine an option? its darker than water, and if we poison casks getting ready to be send elsewhere who knows what trouble they'll cause
>>25463774I say we do a 3 man gank on whoever is guarding her in the wee hours of the morning. Us, Ivan and Armbrust. They will be tired and sluggish.
Schrewe nods, swallowing some of the fresh bread,"Apostates are dangerous. Even my own robes carry an emblem that denotes my affiliation... I... forgot my name though. I suppose I'd be one now though, right? We should definitely save her... Even if only to kill the exorcists and maybe her if she proves useless."Madeleine follows," I could throw that robe back on you know and perhaps... deal with the knights... Not sure what their orders are though.. They may turn me away as well, despite my certain..." She winks with a partial shrug of her shoulder," Attractions.""You put the whore in Tart, Maddie," Kama mumbles, petting the hair of Kralle.Madeleine giggles," Why thank you, I can only try of courrr- Wait, was that an insult?""Carrying on, Comrade. I think we should hold off on some of the killing of cities and villagers, yes?" Ivan looks to you from across the fire, awaiting an answer that you've already thought about."Yes, we need to be smart about who and how many we murder. Especially with the High Priest coming... We can't be sure about how strong he is, should he catch us. And we need to rescue the woman to check to see if she's part of the family...""I'm behind you then comrade, your decision... Though.. it could be that things may get out of hand... We had best prepare ourselves if that is the case.""I agree." An uncommonly heard voice among you, it's Armbrust," I say that we need proper preparation to have excellent performance. There's no excuse if one of us die after all. With Messer and Dorne... I don't want to lose anyone else..." The man looks down and begind to focus on cleaning his crossbow... he seems to no longer be in the mood for words.Say, where do Akuma go when they die? The thought crosses your mind again... It... perplexes you..Bah, enough of that nonsense.> Plan for a rescure this night.> Take a couple days..> Take a few days.> Take a Week.> Set the whole town on fire! Temes the second!> (other)
>>25463639Personally, i think killing the exorcist is a bad idea untill we know if it's necesisary or not. Even if we make a clean kill, they'll be missed, and it could cause trouble. Our mission right now is to find awakening, and recently awakened noah clan members. Let's not do anything to jeprodise that.
>>25463639I think I may have a break through on making black baguette- We need to use a specialized "yeast". Normal yeast reacts to sugar and causes dough to rise. What we need to do is infect a human with our poison, wait until the end of the third day before they perish -then- we use them to make bread.
Also...>50 EXP gained from gratuitous murder.> 240 EXP total.
>>25463639keep an eye on her while we work the bakery to learn guard schedule, try again with bread as we leave for the night.tell the others to keep an eye out around town but be subtle.>maybe give then some money to buy what they want for travels
>>25463878A couple of days. We can extend it for longer or cut it short if we find more pertinent information.For now, we try to blend in and try to integrate ourselves with the community. Incognito.>>25463906Let's upgrade our Pressure Cannons?
>>25463878>Say, where do Akuma go when they die?Save our souls from the horrible god, Akuma-Chan!
>>25463878[X] Plan for a rescure this night.Better that we get her before the church sends its hard hitters. We're going to need to distract the people from the area though.I suggest spreading our blood oil onto the river and starting a small fire as a diversion.
>>25463935yeah. I've been thinking that the pressure cannon upgrade would be nice.
>>25463878>> Plan for a rescure this night.TIme is of the essence.>>25463897So, we could create a distraction and rescue the potential Noah while the exorcist is away?We can lure them with Madeleine or by attacking them obviously.
>>25463878>> Take a few days.>> Take a Week.if an oprotunity presents in a few days take it, but i think a week would be safest. unless the High Priest comes in like 2 days then speed it up
>>25463942 The Akuma consciousness is not transfixed to a soul...
>>25463878tonight, we feed on exorcist.
>>25463878not yet, couple days 2-3 so we can work out the details of our plan and the woman's guards
>>25463906Upgrade Willpower or Leadership. We need to be able to inspire our family, and we can't do that if we're crazy.
>>25463970(Our suffering souls we have trapped inside us)god can't get his dirty paws on em
>>25463953yeah. pretty much. If an exorcist dies, I think everyone assumes that either a noah or a high level akuma killed them, and we'd like to avoid giving either impression. but meh, I'm cool with whatever you guys want to do.
>>25464001not enough for either yet im afraid, but in a couple days....
>>25463878[X] Take a couple days..We'll spend time in town baking, we'll keep a close watch on the Exorcists, gather information on everything they reveal, their schedule, their habits and oddities. We can also learn the secrets of the baguette. Possibly have Schrewe or Madeleine put on their old clothing and talk to them if they think they can keep what they are secret, see if they can't get information from the Exorcists. Everyone else surveys the town and area around it, gathers information, we set up a perfect ambush for the guards when they're most vulnerable, a lightning strike that takes them out as quickly and efficiently as possible.
>>25463878Take a couple of days. I'd like to know more about what we're fighting, and what we're fighting for. also I'd like to learn the baguette.
>>25463878>>[X] Take a couple days.Take our time. We prepare a plan to extract he prisoner. If something odd happens (she's taken away for execution, etc) we spring to action, but until then, we observe and know the territory better.
SInce the consesus seem to be to wait for a few day, can I suggest we try to poison their food? They probably won't notice soon enough.
>>25464201We should still check when she's to be executed
>>25464201We'll need to upgrade our blood so that the side effects don't occur. Time to hunt some vagrants.
>>25464201Whose food? The guards? We don't want to tip the Order or the Church off to the presence of Akuma.>>25464213This. We don't need to act immediately.
>>25463878PARANOIA is my default mode. A few days. We bake (for it is the most righteous of activities), we gamble (for it makes us rich, and being poor is unforgivable), we "disappear" a few people in the woods (because an Akuma is gonna Akuma), and we keep our ears to the ground.Above all the "Witch" gets saved before the priest enters its borders. She's highly likely to be a Noah. Must save her, the Duke's work be done!
>>25464219We should have a family murderpicnic of some sort
You buckle down and act more like a leader at this point.. "We'lll blend in here for a couple of days, survey the town, figure out the guards' schedule, and garner more funds if possible-""I'll be work at the brothel!" Madeleine chimes in suddenly, the whole family stairs at her, even Mr. Stumpy, the delirious paraplegic gambler.You rub your face and Ivan takes over this one for you," You... You can stay here... You can.. ehh... ask them questions in your church clothes, yes? Just... just none of that now." He tries to ease her down off of the idea, though she pouts."Well, what should I do in my off-time then? I know Schwere's interested in getting some books from market, and I'm sure SHE'S going to be doing something Magey.. Armbrust could just as well be a guardsman, Ivan just needs to kill something in the woods for money, and Kama's taking care of Kralle and Wendel! I.. I""We'd rather you not poison people. How about a barmaid?" You offerMadeleine snatches that right up," Oh! that's a perfect idea! Yesss!"The slutty Akuma jumps up and down like a little girl... whatever will we do with this one?It's decided though... information gathering and blending in... The family will move liberate the prisoner in three days!>End Thread here>Getting those sleepy eyes. hmmm... I'll continue Sunday, 2000 as per usual. It's been lovely gentlemen. I cannot wait to see how this plays out!
>>25464263>"I'll do* work at the brothel!">A tribute to my tired.
>>25464219Which side effects are you refering to? Don't forget that they are in full body armor and probably won't notice pentacles on their body.>>25464230We can attack a short time after they are infected, they will be weakened.>>25464263Crap, she's a real slut.
>>25464263Fuck, Madeleine. Being a nun in the 1400's leads to a lot of repression.
>>25464288but she's our slut.
>>25464305Are Exorcists considered part of the church, BTW?
I'll be here for a bit yet... any questions, comments or concerns pertaining to the quest thus far?I am aware I have to update Wendel and Kralle to the Pack.>>25464288The side effect of the Akuma blood-virus is that it causes pentacles to appear upon the skin.>>25464310In this setting, yes. A High Priest is coming.
>>25464326I don't remember if there's any way to counter act the Akuma poison (aside from amputation).Is there?
>>25464305She'll also get touched up at LV 2.She's at a very confused time in her life.
>>25464288Don't you mean good? I mean, once a male is in "afterglow" mode he is most vulnerable. He's happy, exhausted, and ever so trusting. Totally won't see a row of sharp teeth coming. Hell, you kiss his neck, softly, lovingly, he reacts with joy...Only for it to morph into horror as you sever his jugular and joyfully drink the torrent of blood as you reveal yourself to be an Akuma!
>>25464348Touched up? What do you mean? Are you talking about the mane?
>>25464288I think it's more of her being so repressed during her life that it even carried over to Madeleine.
>>25464347Amputation, parasitic innocence, removing the infected blood.Not sure if I'd like to add alternate methods. So, thus far. No. it's a death sentence.>>25464361No, her personality. It'll solidify more come lv 2.Be less one dimensional. I do have plans for the entire pack, as it is...I also had plans for Fredrick..
Almost everyone has something productive to keep them occupied, except Madeleine. We really need to get her a hobby.
>>25464401>hadSay it ain't so, Duke!
>>25464401Fredrick the barkeep? Huh.>>25464402She enjoys getting attention, so taking her to taverns to gather more information may help her get over her antsy-ness.
>>25464442Maybe she could take up dancing? That draws attention like nobody's business.
>>25464401Corwoy (best I can do because he name is a hardcore engrish version of Aleister Crowly) Saved Lavi and others due to his vampiric parasite innocence. Parasite innocence is best innocence, if ya don't mind the life extension shortening effects that is.
>>25464474And the massive fatigue. don't forget that.
>>25464401Oh, I had a question about akuma creation for this setting while you're still awake.So, normal akuma are made when a grieving person calls a loved one back through the earl's services- could we convert two people over to the earl's side for the process? I mean, could we manipulate events so that both participants are willing before, during, and after akuma creation?I think that would be even more of a victory for the earl, if we could convince people to want to be akuma instead of just tricking people.
>>25464563That's called forming a cult.
>>25464563not sure if canon to this version, but remember there are humans who betray exorcists by selling info to and helping the Earl
>>25464563Theoretically, yes.However what powers an Akuma, that makes them different from just a murderbot is the fact that the souls within are tormented by what they need to witness and what they have no control over. It catalyzes their Dark Matter power source and feeds into the Akuma's body, driving the Akuma to evolve and become what they are.If two people willingly submit themselves to such a hell, I'd see it being based upon a demonic contract of sorts.Normally, it's not "trickery" as despair and hope can make people do terribly stupid things.>>25464470Dancing may be good for her indeed...>>25464442Ahhh Fredrick... A good man. One of the best.
>>25464626and if they ARE exorcists, all hell breaks loose when they fall.
>>25464647Making Madeleine into a dancer would just complete our gypsy caravan look.....We need to get some funds quickly. We can't keep on looking for Noah looking like a band of unwashed vagrants.
>>25464669No shit. As in, an enormous flying abomination ravages the countryside.
>>25464669true, meant more regular humans but yes a fallen exorcist would please our Doctor but draw SO much attention
>>25464669Ahhh yess... When an Exorcist falls... Perhaps I'll allow you guys the choice of seeing that happen?I promise it won't be as boring as in the series.
>>25464689Not if it's tasteful dancing.
>>25464705we must bake a bread so delicious that an exorcist would gladly curse God to have more
>>25464705You know what would be absolutly delightful? To make that knight fall. I don't want to just make him fail at his duty, I want him realise the pointlessness of his existence and being an exorcist.
>>25464647>>25464626is this true in this world?maybe not a full cult but regular humans that already praise and assist the Good Doctor
>>25464756so is her lvl 2 going to be a slut lion?
>>25464734Well, if we continue upgrading our Creation Oven, we may happen upon a recipe that allows us to make something that can weaken a person's mind. Make them more susceptible to suggestions.
>>25464756That could be her level 3 form. After being a slut at level 1 and 2, she could become a brothel madam on level 3.
>>25464756Leadership skill can bring about many things thought improbable.
>>25464758We just need to undermine the Exorcists' authority as much as we can. Like Edo, in he manga.Also. All this talk about sluts and whores. I know Madeleine is one, but let's keep it tasteful.
>>25464778>slut lionThere's an idea, though I think I'll keep my current one for Schwere's sake.>>25464779Always these ideas... quite good.>>25464754That may actually be very difficult.. Wait until you see their guard schedules... There was a reason why his brother spoke for him...
>>25464816but shes a rare clergy woman/exorcist slut.>>25464865>There was a reason why his brother spoke for him...parasite type that took his tongue/speech isn't it
>>25464889Like I said before I think it's less her being promiscuous, and more of her trying to find a niche to fill.
>>25464865Was he asleep or what?Great I am curious now. Curse you Doctor.>>25464889Maybe its an equip type that affect his voice, as in turn it into a weapon.
>>25464889 There's an idea... might change his name to Caim and I'll go full, unrestrained murderhobo that could make Faefnir blush Speaking of which...It's looking that out of all the Akuma... Faefnir is actually the most sadistic...Go figure...
>>25464865Damn, Duke, you gotta keep some more surprises from us.
>>25464943Who are you talking about? The Exorcist?
>>25464943>Faefnir is actually the most sadistic...because unlike our fellows, we understand and strive to please the Good Doctor with all our kills. and take our time to enjoy them when time permits
>>25464943 THE Cain... like the SCP Cain? If so, hell no, I ain't messing with that...
>>25464983 That Cain is inspired from the biblical Cain, the first murderer.
>>25464943>Caimmfw>well unlike the others we didn't get to go hunting so we took the time to enjoy our catch
>>25464983So who was he talking about? Frederick? The Exorcist?
>>25464954Keep more? I have so many though...>>25464983 Nah, not SCP Cain. Caim. The PCmurderhobo from Drakengard. In the game he literally kills like 10,000 men with his own blade. In the second, the heroine finds him so terrifying as an antagonist that just being within a mile of him makes her revert psychologically to that of a 5 year old.As I said, that's just a new thought... I'd say to expect that more later on... From a general.
>>25464943And the most controlled. We just love doing the Good Doctor's work, but only when prudent. Otherwise, we bake, and watch over our little family.
>>25465012Who are you talking about anyway? Who's this guy whose name you might change to Cain?
>>25465033The exorcist knight referenced here >>25464889
>>25465041Ah, I see. But why would his having a possible voice-based Innocence inspire you to change his name?
>>25465052wondering that as well, I mean I'm glad my parasite type idea gives you idea but a little confused
>>25465052It was implied that the innocence took his speech. That's a trait from the protagonist murderhobo I had mentioned. After entering a pact with a dragon, he lost his ability of speech as his obligatory pact price in exchange for power, and immortality so long as neither he or the dragon die. In the second game, he shows up as an antagonist... The main is such a hardcore murderhobo that they decide to kill him, its easier to just kill the damn dragon. And before they actually do the deed, he kills a man that made a pact with death itself just because it was a thing to do...
Ag, apologies, my grammar is breaking down with my fatigue..Any last questions? I apologize for losing you all a bit with the reference. if the man is included in some shape or form, he will only bear traits from the character. Can't have a copy and paste character after all, hmm?
>>25465108Oh, I understand now. Sounds pretty hardcore. Glad we're not up against him.
>>25465142So, I noticed our Personality leveled up when we got to Level 2. Were our quirks unaffected?
>>25465142this is slightly off topic, but who do you think would be harder to deal with? Cain (076) or Caim? Just curious as to your thoughts.
>>25465142thank you for clearing that up, please don't murder hobo us
>>25465142now i want to see what we learn from watching them
>>25465142>kills a man that made a pact with death itself just because it was a thing to do...well if you can do it than why not
>>25465142quick question if you can answer, how many recipes can we potentially learn and how much experimenting to we typically need to learn new ones?
>>25465172Caim's trait is dragon-powered pure relentless murderhobo...SCP 076 is... Murderhobo though tasteful and horribly powerful... I'll have to read SCP's again.. Though by matters of personality... A Caim archetype would be harder to deal with. He'd kill innocent bystanders to get at you and not give a single fuck. And neither would his innocence. 076 would likely determine that the Akuma are no fun to kill and rather that they stay alive and observe them.>>25465224Bakeries are the key. I have at least 6 planned.
>>25465224Adding my own question to his question: Can we decide the nature of the next recipe we get?How do you decide what kind of recipe we'll get anyway?
>>25465241Natural progression. Though upgrading the Oven increases the quality and reduces the odd look of the products.There will be non-food items that can be made.
>>25465172Cain (073), mainly because any damage dealt is taken by the one doing the damage instead. He's literally unfightable.Abel (076)? I'd say he's worse than Caim, but not by much.
>>25465262whopsie. yeah. I was reversing them.
>>25465262Ah, yes. I was thinking of Abel as well.
Good night gentlemen. And a pleasant night to you all!

>>25465402Whoop, looks like someone did it already. Good job, man.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25457913/
>>25465446Thank you for the consideration! <3
>>25465496Sweet dreams, Duke.
>>25465261>Bread golemsOr hell, really any kind of little scout golems. Ash golems?
>>25466278Bread that breaks apart into tiny bread crumb golems? Could be fun.
