Right, right, welcome to the Wonderland Tales of the Akuma, where everything is nonsense! Nothing is what it is, and what it is, it isn't. And Contrary-wise, what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would!Welcome to my delightful little.. usurped land...Within the last funny little telling, Faefnir flew upon a table like a naughty little fly and nearly had himself swat!Maddie and I casually pointed to a right-proper staircase in which we all ascended with the utmost, most, and almost proper grace...Before us now... Well, We'll get to that, wouldn't we?Rules of Wonderland!>http://pastebin.com/RPD8fGbxFaefnir's abilities and paramaters.. for what it's worth in Wonderland..>http://pastebin.com/w7sdhcqRThe entire dreadfully dreary and happy tale so far.>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Akuma%20QuestWelcome, welcome, to the place where nothing is impossible!
Alice calls out, giggling like mad, as you speed away from the table, jumping off and hovering down for a landing, Maddie looks to you and jumps up and down clapping, "Oh loook, loook, look! My dearest is back! Oh how I've missed you dearly dearest dearly dear! By the by way, dear.. There's a way over there..." Madeleine points to a staircase that leads up to the chair, and continues on up to the table.Alice chuckles at that, calling out to you," Cheeeky little fly Look at you dodging the swat! Good job fly-fly Faefnir! Did you see any food up there?"You scratch at your chin, trying to recall as you fold your wings in," I.. Hmm.." You tend to your newfound "fly-senses.. "I believe... I believe that there was, even if I didn't see it."Alice skips over to you and grabs your hand, smiling like a lunatic that's been pleased far more than she should have been," Good, good, if you think it's there, it should be there.""Is this another rule of this fantastic land?""Nope! That's just good ol' Grade: B Optimism!""And what's Grade:A?""Pessimism of course! That's a rule! I think..".>Wonderland Rule #?:The only thing better than Optimism is Pessimism.Maddie joins hands with Alice and the three of you skip up to the table's top, a feast for the eyes and the mouth, Roasted Pig, Sauteed Mushroom, Cheese Covered Beef, and Swan Stew... You know it to be swan as there's a label.. in fact, there's a label on all of these things.."Well, if we want to open that door, we've got to stuff our faces!">Which food do you eat?>Or shall you set it aflame and make your own?

>>26884885Let us eat the shrooms! What could possibly go wrong?
Holy empty threads, Batman!
>>26885124Aye, Aye, Aye. Emptiness is an elegy.. I'm looking for a requiem, a requiem of fulfillment.Where art though brave questers, I have words in my head for you!
>>26885124I'm here on my phone.>>26884906Pessimism IS better than optimism. Burn everything else, but pocket the shroom.
>>26885088What could possibly go right? Or up? Or Kata ?Anyway, lets bake the shrooms into a focaccia.
Right then, Consensus is a rtazzle-dazzle skelter ed neverywhere.Let's go with flumly medium.
>>26885300Going with nonsense words, I see. How absolutely spendiforous
>>26885300Dear Alice, how do I make parallel lines cross while keeping them parallel? Also, I want to ask how is the weather right now in wonderland? Madaverously red? Storforously blue? Plupindly green?
>>26885381Parallel lines will always be parallel if they still have the same thoughts in mind.As for the weathers in wonderland, they are stupendously gray, ondoronicly brown, and whateveronder else they choose to be.
>>26885403Is the weather ever anocratically yellow?
>>26885444As often as it is firmousfully pink, I'd imagine
>>26885530Then I hope amalgamically yellow is rare, because you really don't want to go out in mysterically pink weather. At least, not without a double umbrella and some steel toed boots.
>>26885601Aren't nonsense words fun?
>>26885644Funtastic. Almost as fun as horrible puns.
You pace about the dishes, taking each one into your oculars carefully, sniffing at each one fervently with your olfactories.The banquet tickles your nostrils and altogether they seem to be a lavish banquet, Alice awaits your decision humming and skipping around," Food upon a table, food upon a table, what shall we eat? How shall we dine?"Madeleine grabs your hand as you make a pass by her and she pulls you close, wrapping her arms around you," Now, now dearest, we mustn't tarry, time's a wasting isn't it? Shall we make a decision? The rule is..""That we must eat upon a table to grow," You lean against her and tilt your head back to look into her face, a sardonic smile tracing itself upon your face.You give your significant other half a peck upon her neck and gently twist away, hopping over to the mushroom dish," I have chosen! We shall dine upon the shrooms!"Alice hops up and down, her golden locks bouncing upon her shoulders even as she claps," Yay, yay! You chose not meat! Only the mushrooms are kosher indeed!"Your eyes lock upon Alice and adjust to focus upon her intently," And what would happen perchance if I had selected wrong?"Alice gives you the most innocent smile that her black heart could muster, as she turns away shyly," Why, if you eat a food that's not Kosher, You'll taste nothing but salt, it's rather icky you know.">Wonderland Rule# 81: A food not Kosher will taste like nothing but salt.The three of you dig in voraciously and after having a meal adequate of your size,you sense a rumble about you, Alice grins, giddy with delight.
"It comes, it comes, it's coming!"The three of you suddenly expand into every dimension, you glimpse shouldn't-bes and never-beens, before you adjust back to your current plane."What in the world.." You whisper.Maddie cackles like a mad witch," Oh. Oh, that was interesting, Faefnir was naked, let's do it again!"Alice wags her finger at Maddie with a tsk tsk," Do something once and it's a fun surprise, do it again and it's a dull event... By the way, I believe that we can open the door now, let us go!"Alice hops off of the table and takes two steps before she's at the door.. This was in fact a very small room.. now that you've got a better perspective of it.. Just the table, the chair, and a rather small little brunch that's all over your good clothes, not that they were ever great clothes, though it's still upsetting. "Oh my.."Maddie giggles at you as she shuffles of the table, standing behind Alice who's now peering at the Doorknob."Mr. Doorknob, we're ready to go through! We're the right size, are we not?" She waits for a pause, backs off and crosses her arms," I care not for what the Queen says, you need to open up because I am Alice, Alice of the white."A sneer slowly appears upon her face and she finally turns to you," The doorknob won't give us a turn, say Maddie, could you give it a good one? Kindness does open many doors.."> "Alice, the door didn't say anything..."> Right then, have Maddie Muscle open the door..> Strongarm the thing yourself.> Burn the door down.> (Other)
>>26885718Try turning the doorknob and opening it normally.
>>26885718>> (Other)Lets ask the door politely. Then we can tickle it into opening.If that doesn't work, lets pull the door up from the bottom.
>>26885718Maddie Muscle it!
>>26885718Do as the white princess commands, Maddiepower! Anyone know a cheap way to make an oven safe custom baking pan? I have devilish ideas but no real baking talent.
>>26885934Cast iron oft works for ovening.
>>26885934Then shouldn't we all receive a new name? In the queen of the red and the princess of the white, we shall be the blue hero with his golden twin.Also, some types of clay pots or cast iron would work for baking.
>>26885969Ticket is I need it to be a certain shape, I have cookie sheets and a cake pan I can borrow, but nothing in the way of shaped pans.
>>26886021I put forth the motion to be named the Two of Loafs. A couple name, of course.
>>26886073>>26886021Best decide upon something or you shall be Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum! T'was your name in your last venture here Bondomu...
>>26886104How about a card theme? In support of the princess of white, I say we should be the Jack of white while Maddie shall be the Ace of white.Also, did anyone else notice you can't say maddie without saying MAD?
>>26886199Silence fool! Do not invoke the word!
>>26886254MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD MAD
Maddie looks to you and you give a brief shrug followed by a slight bow, with what space the three of you have,"My dear, if you would?"Maddie only smiles at you and steps before Alice, partially transforming her arms.. Black metal with Golden veins running between the plate.. a much more appealing form than that holy-white eyesore from before...She places her hands upon the frame of the door, gripping into it with her sheer might," The White Princess declares that it should open, and open you shall!"She takes a step back and tears the entire thing out before pushing it forward and through...Before you lies a forest ripe with life, little bugs that spark with fire, Maneating horseflies, Brain and Butterflies, and trees with smiles and eyes.The sky is a lovely shade of blue, like a midsummer day.Alice steps out into the wood, bringing her heel down upon the doorknob that wouldn't open, the thing tries biting at her, however the blow seems to have broken its jaws," I'll be honest here, never liked this one.. Did well at his job though, his only job.." Alice turns to you with a sweet smile, her eyes their very human blue," Truth be told, this is the first time I've been in this part of the land.. I've partitioned a portion off for when I make my visits.. I'm afraid that the only friends I still have here are a hatter and a cat... Perhaps a hare, though he's not important, he was never important.. By the way.. Where do you think we should go Bondomu?"
You step through the door, hand in hand with Madeleine and turn back to see from whence you just came.. A mushroom house.. a disturbingly normal mushroom house that would seem definitely out of place among the veined trees, the vicious bugs, and whatever else lies in this realm.Your Oculars catch a sign not to far away.. Pointing down one path, it reads," To The Lost Woods.."Down the other path, you see another sign that reads," To The Found Village"And then a third path that reads," To The Red Queen."Wait, what?You read that again," To The Red Queen."Alice seems lost in thought,"Oh, whichever way shall we go.. We must find the Red Queen and behead her.. perhaps worse to make sure she dies.. Likely we'll need to find the white rabbit to take us there.. That is, we're like to find him only if he's pandering about and late for her croquet.." Alice ceases a moment and looks to the two of you," Oh, she quite likes Croquet you know.. Now.. Which way..."> Take the First path, the one to the Lost Woods...> Take the Second Path, the one to the found Village> Take the third path, the one to the Red Queen.> Play with the wildlife..> Wait for the rabbit.> (Other)
>>26886515[X] Take the Second Path, the one to the found VillageWhile we're doing this talk to Alice, ask her more about the Red Queen, if we are to behead her we ought to know her strengths and weaknesses.
>>26886563>>26886515Yeah lets go the found village to gather information, or kill everyone if they don't prove useful or funny enough.
>>26886515To the lost woods we go! If the rabbit is late, he's probably lost at worst.
>>26886515> Take the third path, the one to the Red Queen.Surely this is a sign from the rabbit!
>>26886613Never trust the rabbit unless you have him by the ears or he's late.
>>26886598Sounds good. Can only play for a little bit today before collapsing back to sleep or get killed by Alice for my name.
>>26886679>>26886651>>26886304You're barking up the wrong tree, it's going to bite you back...Seems that you'd like to go to the village!It's nice that you didn't fall for such an obvious trap...Or did you?
>>26886804We didn't fall for the sign that utterly screams trap but we may have accidentally walked into another one with a quieter and more civil sign.
>>26886797>>26886679Hey, it's not like inhabitants of the wonderlands really counted as people anyway. Well, except Alice of course.>>26886804Sowwy.Who said I didn't want to fall in the obvious trap? Falling in the trap IS FUN!
So I'm wondering if all the Noah have their own inner world? Us, we've got a lake, a forest, a couple of moons, shadow children, and a graveyard. Is Wonderland Alice's inner world?Would that make the lost woods the equivalent to our forest?
>>26886928Did you read the manga? The dreams of Noah power is the ability to summon a pocket dimension under her control. Alice being the dreams of Noah in this case.
"I'd like to take the path to the village!" You declare triumphantly, ignoring the sign that so brazenly indicates the direction of the Red Queen.Maddie pulld on your tunic with her other hand and leans over to whisper in your ear."Hey, hey, why aren't we going down the path that says Red Queen? Or do you think it's a trap?"You clear your throught, and with confidence you say," Clearly, clearly it's a trap, we go to the village.Alice looks over at the sign and her jaw drops. She hops up and down with giddy excitement" Faefnir, Faefnir, look! It says that it goes to the Red Queen!" She suddenly stops and smiles," Though when something here declares that it is, it rightly isn't. And what it isn't... it is... Look at this..." She points to the signs," That road says that it goes to the Red Queen, so it isn't. The other says that the village is found, so it is lost, and the Woods are lost, so they are found! Simple, isn't it?"It's really not. You bring a hand to your forhead to rub at what would be your temple..> Continue onto the Lost Village?
>>26887083Let's do this. The Lost Village is certain to have something exciting there.
>>26887083Lets continue to the lost village, maybe we'll find something. Get it? HAHAHAAnyway, since pessimism is better, lets not get our hopes up, otherwise we'll get them down.
Rolled 92>>26887173Rolling is fun!
>>26887192I'm good with this.
>>26887240We need a third to please the RNG god and Alice the Ma...Demen...White.
>>26887268I'm pleased as pickles that you understood the second. A third roll I say! A third roll!
Rolled 27>>26887288Darn, I thought my roll pessimism would carry the day. Oh well.>>26887173A roll for the one true queen!
>>26887346How very expected.
>>26887346I'm fine with failing to get lost and finding a Jabberwok.
>>26887379Oh? Oh really...
>>26887364I wonder if the dark entity still has power in the worderland.Actually, lets take the 98. It might be FUN!
>>26887416No. I'm guessing sarcasm is sincere here?
>>26887420Baka S! Baka!
>>26887034You misunderstand me.I'm saying that it's possible all Noah have this inner world. And that Alice just makes hers more "real".
>>26887452>Baka S! Baka!Yamete anonymous-san, YAMETE!By the way, do you know what did the bed say?>>26887481I believe the inner world you speak of is only a projection of our inner psyche created by the soul of disciple of Noah inside us.Also, this thread is oddly reminding me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6MltGHO-lE
>>26887535>Also, this thread is oddly reminding me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6MltGHO-lEIt should./spoiler]
>>26887535Yes. That was what I said. Was I not clear?
"To the village we shall go, what's the worst that could happen?" You muse aloud as you start, Madeleine in hand, and Alice soon taking up the other."Now now, Pessimism is better than optimism, though countercontrarily Optimism is better than pessimism only when pessimism isn't optimistic and..." Alice begins to ramble on about the facets of perspective outlook, what they mean, and the truth about all life in general..You just kind of tune her out as you blow away a wretched horsefly that's buzzed in your face, twice-blighted nuisances.Some time passes as the three of you walk upon the trail to the Lost Village... You feel a pull upon Maddie's side and look to her," Hm?" "This place.. say, why are we here at all?""And therefore there is no such thing as Pessimism or Optimism when you really get down to it... Oh, and the two of you are here because None of the other Noah have time for this spiteful little errand.. That's only the first of all.. The second of all, and I'll have you know.. There's no mana here... So magic will not work.. However it is the realm of Dream.. And your innate power as Noah is to make ideas real!"You look to Alice, as you begin to laugh spontaneously," And what my dear does all that mean?! I haven't the slightest clue!""And therefore you have all of the clues you need!" She says, a smile painted upon her lips," This is the best place for the two of you to learn!""Learn what, might I ask, and might I pray you tell?" Maddie looks over at Alice, across from you, her eyes truly curious/"Your ability of course, need I spell it out? Look to the front, imagine something... Go on ahead.. think of it!"Yours and Maddie's eyes meet, and then go forward, the gears in your head turning...>Synch roll!2/10 Roll under! Penalty of 2 for Wonder!
Rolled 8>>26887659Is this a d100, d20, d10?
Rolled 7>>26887659Roll what? A d10?Lets think of...bread.
Rolled 1>>26887659Ham sandwich.
>>26887731>>26887736Your guess was as good as mine!
>>26887751..."Penalty of 2" means only two rolls are taken, right?
Rolled 5>>26887751And a ham sandwich it will be. It will be a bit salty however. >>26887752What does penalty of 2 means?
>>26887779nope, means that the result gets reduced by two. So your technical Success threshold was 4 or under.Congrats!>>26887751You get a ham sandwich!
Rolled 6>>26887797Might want to reword that a bit dearest Alice.By the way, what did the bed in wonderland say?A bed I amA bedlam, get it? HAHAHA
>>26887797Burn sandwhich for ash and ask Alice if we can be tracked when using this new power. Actually, ask if it has any major drawbacks. Don't expect a clear answer.
>>26887797So it's not really a penalty at all, then.
>>26887862We can't burn it. Magic doesn't work here.Which makes it quite curious how we were able to flyatall in the last thread.
>>26887956Rules don't apply if you don't remind reality about them.
>>26887956You remembered how to fly, so you flew.Simple.
>>26887956Hmm, so we'd have to roll synch to will our normal abilities into existence? This might be getting complicated. Also, I'm pretty sure that our furnace is mechanical so it still should be fine at incinerating things, just not baking at the moment.
>>26888017Oh no. Am I the only one expecting:>Rule something - The rules apply when the rules apply.
You and Madeleine concentrate together, your thoughts syncing up with each other through your bond that goes beyond words... Before you, a Ham Sand witch appears! Bearing a skull, a handful of sand, bronze skin and robes.The first thing it does is throw sand into your eyes, kick you in the chest, felling you to the ground, and before Maddie can properly react it begins reciting an awefully boring play," TO BE, OR NOT TO BE!!! THAT IS THE QUESTION!" It screams out loud, drawing the attention of all the little buggaboos that crawl within the wood.Light falls solely on this thoughtform as it raises the skull high, the rest of the wood dimming around it."Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to sufferThe Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,And by opposing end them: to die, to sleepNo more; and by a sleep, to say we end... Alas.. We must end..." It tosses the skull away and draws forth a saber," Alas we must end."It backs off and stares at you and Maddie as it blocks your path...As you rise, you groan wiping the accursed sand from your eyes," Maddie, Ham Sandwitch.. Ham Sandwitch.. what the hell is this...""I.. I don't know, I didn't..." She backs off, and transforms her arms, ready to do battle with the mad creature.Alice claps from the side, whistling to cheer on this.. erm.. "performance.""Don't you just love how Wonderland takes your mundane thoughts and twists them into something so much more.. interesting?"You and Maddie alike turn to yell," No!" Yet, the sudden thrust of the Ham Sand Witch's blade cuts you off as you narrowly dodge its ungodly speed.> Use your speed to tackle it down.> Turn tail and flee!> Hide behind Maddie.> Use Creation Engine again...> (Other)
>>26888036What powers the oven? Magic.It can still work as an oven, but it can't generate heat without magic. It being mechanical is irrelevant, since we never powered it using any kind of mundane fuel.
>>26888126Show him our rendition of Romeo and Juliet. We are CULTURED folk.
>>26888126We use our speed to grab its sword hand and restrict its movement, then Maddie rips its head off with brute strength.
>>26888126> Use Creation Engine again...Lets summon an army of puppets representing the Noah family to counter the sand witch.
>>26888126>Speed tackle while coordinating with Maddie by means of >>26888192.I can think of no other course of action.
>>26888192Queen Mab speech while alternating lines with Maddie?
>>26888298>>26888298Sounds good to me.
>>26888126Use the Creation engine! To make a Lyre. it's the closest thing I could think of the Laertes
>>26888298>>26888254>>26888192It shall be done...I'll need a synchronization roll. 2(4)/103 rolls 1d10And 3 Agility Rolls, DC19 Modifier +7 1d20
Rolled 10 + 1>>26888447lets try this
Rolled 14 + 7>>26888481Sadly you can't roll two different type of dice at once. Rolling Agility.
Rolled 9 + 7>>26888447Dodgy d20
Ok, we need one more agil and maybe a synchro roll (I expect that critfail to count...)
>>26888605It won't.And you do.
>>26888481I can't tell since I'm on my phone, but if this guy was rolling a 1d10, he did it wrong. So we get 2 more synch rolls and 1 ago, or vice-versa.
>>26888805Nevermind, I counted the rolls wrong.
Rolled 8 + 7>>26888800
Rolled 1>>26888447S-s-s-synch! (just to jinx it)
>>26888982This was pure pessimism, wouldn't you say?
>>26888982We get props fit for a big time stage production?
>>26888943I'm still for creating Lyretes.
You feel your own mind touch with Madeleine's as the madness of the land resonates within the two of you, your joints feel as limber as ever as you shed your human form with a forward lunge, driving your body into the enemy en garde.Words flow through your mouth like water from a spring," "O, then, I see Queen Mab hath been with you!" You send the witch sprawling, as your weight carries you over, allowing you to bring yourself to a stop with a roll and a stand upon a single claw, the world, upside -down.Madeleine crashes down upon the Sand Witch, smiling as she brings a fist down upon the sword," She is the fairies’ midwife, and she comes!" She brings down another fist, and then another, sand spraying everywhere that there would be blood.You right yourself, your oculars focused upon the tragic creature of your own creation," In shape no bigger than an agate-stoneOn the fore-finger of an alderman..." You step up to observe within a closer proximity,mouths open up all over your body, chainsaw smiles.Maddie ceases her assault and backs off from the bludgeoned thing,"Drawn with a team of little atomiesAthwart men's noses as they lie asleep..."You both smile," And so too shall you sleep."The mangled corpse of the Sand Witch smiles," So too shall I sleep."It fades away into oblivion and you suddenly, hear a round of applause from all around you, seemingly out of nowhere.. Yet then you see them.. Eyes.. people.. all around.Though there's something ineffably wrong about them.. And among the audience you see Alice, cheering on your little performance," Bravo, Bravo! It seems we've found the Lost Village, and they love theatre!"You and Madeleine look out to the crowd, and then to each other...> Bow, absorb all the applause...> Attack the crowd.> Use Creation Engine.> (Other)
>>26889229[X] Bow, absorb all the applause...And have Maddie bow as well, take pride in our performance, it was quite a good one.
>>26889229>BowIt was a fine performance. We'll see if they provide us with an encore.
>>26889285Oh, present Maddie so she might bow first, then bow ourself onces she's had her turn, then take her hand and bow with her. This should be a bit showing given that we just gave them quite the show.
>>26889229bow, then use the creation engine to create a set of closing curtains.
You are the first to bow as you revert to your human skin, taking in all of the applause and whistles, Maddie is the second to take her bow, and then the two of you hold hands, the Ham Sand Witch rematerializes and the three of you bow together, the applause at its loudest, snapping dragon flowers, roses by other names, and more are thrown onto your makeshift stage as the curtains close.The three of you now find yourself in the backstage of the theater, Monkeys and Crabs rushing out to powder Maddie's nose, wipe the sweat from your brow, and give the Ham Sand-Witch a warm towel.The Sand-Witch turns to the two of you, holding out a hand for a hamshake, the gentleman you are, you take it and give him a nice firm grip,"It was a pleasure to work with the two of you, I'd love it if we'd perform with each other again another day, hard to find good talent around here, and I've never heard applause so grand."Maddie holds a rose by another name, and touches her breast, obviously flattered,"Why thank you, it was a pleasure to work with you as well, this is the Lost Village, yes?"The Ham Sand-Witch smiles at her, A sterling white grin," Nay, it is not, for this is the Village Found. I do hope you enjoy yourselves here, the people are so nice, what with the rule of the Red Queen..">You have control.>Suggestions> Exit the Backstage, and find Alice> Start killing the denizens.> Inquire more..> (Other)
>>26889598>> Exit the Backstage, and find Alice>> Inquire more..
>>26889598>Inquire moreDream denizens seem like the best source of information for what's going on in Wonderland.
>>26889598[X] Inquire more.."Of course, the Red Queen. I'm new in town, what has she done here?"
>>26889598>[x] Inquire further.
>>26889598inquire more then turn her inside out for insinuating the red whore deserves to live.
>>26889789Everything but that last part is fine.
>>26889789As much as she deserves it we probably shouldn't cause a commotion right now, if we reveal ourselves too early we'll have a hard time getting to the Red Queen and killing the whore.
>>26889839Just saying. I think we should eat the Red Queen and wear her skin.
>>26889866You don't eat shit in the real world, so why would you want to do it in a dream?
"Of course, Of course, the Red Queen.. Say, I'm quite new to town, might I inquire as to what she's done here?"The Sand Witch gives you the widest smile, amber eyes sparkling with something akin to admiration," Oh my, what HASN'T she done? Well, first of all, she's purged much of the mad troublemakers of the realm, off with their heads and whatnot. We scarcely have to deal with the knickers that once lurked about.. My, even the dreadful Jabberwocky has been sealed away by the Red Queen of Hearts."as the odd thing goes on about the Queen, a part of you begins to woinder just how something that you willed into existence not even twenty minutes ago knows so much about wonderland.. But then, it's likely best not to tempt fate and ask."Interesting, Would it be possible to receive an audience with this.. Red Queen? I'd love to meat her. I'd simply love to sl- thank her for her service to the noble people of the land."The Sand Witch clasps its.. her.. his.. whatever the pronoun's hands together and sighs dreamily,"Alas to receive an audience with the queen, you must perform a service to Wonderland, a service grand enough to take notice of.. Alternatively.." The Sand witch looks to the side and glowers a bit gloomily," You could also meet her during execution.. She always arrives personally to see to it that the Headsman does his job.. She assists him as he has no hands.. A handless headsman if you would.. It's the thought that counts for such a position, no?" The Sand Witch smiles at you, tan skin pulling lighter lips into a smile framed by sand-coloured hair."Come now, there is an after-party to attend for the play. Likely there will be tea and biscuits for us, the tech crew and the supporting cast... Not to say that it's all that'll be there...> Attend the After-Party with the Sand Witch...> Seek out Alice.> Start killing things... Everything...> Seek Madeleine's opinion.> (Other)Oh yeah, your Synch rating also increased from the play. 3/10!
>>26889948[X] Seek Madeleine's opinion.And I think going to the party would be good, but we should bring Alice along with it. Ask if we can bring a plus one.
>>26889948>Ask for Maddie's opinion>Seek Alice; she MUST join us for this after-partyThe Jabberwock has been sealed away, hmm?HMMMM.
>>26889987>Wondering if Akuma ever get taken into Wonderland>Wondering what an Akuma would be like after an extended stay in Wunderland>Wondering if the Jabberwock may be Alice's favorite plaything in Dunderland>Wondering if the Red Queen wields a certain sword....
>>26889883In this quest we ate a few people, its not like this would be anything new.
>>26889948>> Seek out Alice.>then maybe kill everything>> Seek Madeleine's opinion.>also then maybe kill everything
>>26889948So Alice has just been "The..." for a while now. Can anyone think up a reason for that?>>26890037. <----point----------o <---your head
>>26889883Eating people is your current method for recording their bodies as a secondary disguise.Really should have have Morgan fix you before doing Wonderland...
>>26889948[X] Start killing things... Everything...I believe now would be a good time to let loose.
>>26889948>synch up!Sweet!Hmm, we should get Maddie and Alice's opinions on our options...and maybe propose a bit of a prison break scheme (poor young Jabby can't be the only fun one that that wicked Scarlet No-Fun-Nancy has locked "safely" away. Then again, there's really no guarantee that we can point denizens of chaos in the right direction...
>>26890060I got the point but we didnt exactly like the other people we ate.
>>26890069>fixWhat do you mean? Like with Ivan? And were you saying there was something wrong with our disguise? Aside from the fact that it's a corpse?>>26890079At the very least, it would focus the Red Queen's attention else where. And if she's got a sizable force working under her, it would divert much of them away.
>>26890069Eh, that bridge is still smoldering. I'd rather patch it a bit more before ticking off our other half by trusting Morgan with fixing (Improving! With science!) us.
>>26890069Oh yeah sure lets let the woman who tried to have us killed twice and mind fucked Ivan "Fix" us.
>>26890127Nah, you're not gaining any exp right now. There's a reason for that. You need to be transfigured at a hardware level to fix that.
>>26890142In all fairness, she would have made us "better."
I swear you guys are being far too civil for this land. Why not reach out and kill someone?
>>26890195We killed the sand witch.
>>26890167You know, I don't think I ever would have expected an external entity could clear that up for us. Weird.
>>26890142Where were you in the last thread? Our character isn't angry at all about what happened to Ivan. Play in character.>>26890167Ah, I see, I see. We'll have to ask Alice to take us back to Morgan after this trip (and she did want to talk with us before we left the Duke's table).
>>26890211Oh yes. He most definitely died. But he's back, no worry.>>26890195Stealth, mostly. Yeesh.
>>26890195Because they comeback and we don't have much intel on how things work here yet. Besides, I like the idea of option 3, acquire army of fun loving (Not Crazy!) monsters, reduce the queen's forces to ash, her castle to rubble and place her head on a pike. But that's just me. And I don't know if that's truly viable yet.
>>26890221I can trust the majority to continue to chase tits so I can be as pissed as I want.I was so disapointed its like you guys never heard of bros before hos before.Also Duke likes Shadow run so I dont think we are half paranoid enough.
>>26890221I don't think Alice wants us to leave Wonderland until the Scrouge thereof has had her royal derrière kicked from high Heaven to blackest Hell. And then had the upstart's (still living) head mounted on the wall after destroying her innocence.
>>26890297Be pissed, but at least acknowledge that others have already presented points for why Morgan CAN be trusted and leave it at that.>>26890313That's.....why I said "after this trip".
>>26890297Tots bros before hos mah homey. You know da game I'm playin'. Dis is why you ahead o' the ball.. The round curve-like ball that's comin at ya.. Just in good time.. Naww'msayin?Oh yes, and I believe I should also take this time to say...Burn ALL the babies! Bwahahaha!
>>26890332See He totaly agrees with me. I think.
You turn to Maddie, the two of you lock eyes with each other and you feel that you can sense more of each other's surface thoughts... Yet its still rather murky..."My love, what's your opinion upon this matter? I personally believe that an after-party would be the best way to celebrate the delightful little performance we shared with our new.. friend here.. What-say you?"Maddie shoes away a crab that took to doing her nails.. She's left with a perfect manicure," Well.." She blows at the drying paint upon her nails," I suppose that it couldn't hurt.. Though of course we should find Alice, wouldn't want to travel on without her..."The sand-witch stares at the two of you incredulous, at the mention of that name," Ah.. By chance.. When you say.. Alice.. do you mean.. A Alice... Or THE Alice...?"You get a bad feeling from that look, and it registers with Maddie, she smiles nervously as your eyes meet again...> Lie. Lie your ass off.> Tell the truth.> Avoid the topic.> Kill Everything.> (Other)
>>26890397"You mean an Alice, you have to remember your grammar after all.Why do you ask?"
>>26890297>ShadowrunOk, each of the Noah - in varying amounts of frequency, conviction and success - are going to try screwing us over. That includes Morgan. That includes Pity. That includes Adam. What we're doing with Alice right now? Very high chance of screwing us over. Did she want to wait for us to find out that Morgan could let us gain exp again? Maybe, but it wasn't her primary concern.You're thinking of Morgan as a woman. Don't. She's a Noah fairly well aligned with our theme and that makes being able to work with her very valuable. Will she try killing us again? Maybe if it's For Science! But it's much less likely than I think you believe. Families screw each other over much more often than they kill each other. Even this one.
>>26890397[X] Kill Everything.You've tempted with the choice long enough. It's time to see about getting an execution order on ourselves.
>>26890397Lie, cheat and steal thats the Akuma way.
>>26890383Nah mans. Nah.>>26890397"It may be the Alice if the Alice you mean is the Alice we've seen. But how could I know what Alice you mean when I've never been in this land before?"We in Wonderland. Let's get confusing as fuck.
>>26890431Not paranoid enough.
>>26890475Fair enough, but I'd rather not have to deal with Adam's wrath before we can make level 0 Akuma ourself.
>>26890431I had an inkling that that was what the Doctor was trying to do when he offered up that assignment to invade the Order's HQ.Nevertheless, it does not seem like they would force the issue. Plus, the Noah family are as loyal as fuck to one another (sans a certain somebody).
>>26890520The probably are.When they are in human bodys.One of them might decide its for our own good to kill us and release us from our metal prison.
>>26890520Agreed, though it's a sort of warped value of "loyal" I think.
>>26890448That's crazy! So crazy it just might work
>>26890558Alice and Morgan probably wouldn't be the ones to do it. Alice thinks our situation to be terribly interesting and Morgan likes us.The Doctor may personally want that, but pragmatism and the general opinion of the current family members seem like enough protection.Pity would probably do it. On the other hand, who knows HOW he feels about us right now, considering that he was supposedly grateful for the little treat we gave him through Alice.
You know, it's nice that I incite paranoia without directly trying.. I've seen other QMs seed paranoia in their players... It's nice to know that there's ways to increase the level naturally.. more naturally and without the backlash that it may incur...I'm writing now by the way..
>>26890647No worries. Paranoia is a requisite for an Akuma after all. Besides, all a said is that we can't trust anyone ever. No big deal there since that was a given.
>>26890633Your not paranoid enough. Everyone will probably try to kill us except our family. Even then they might try something because reasons.There have been two attempts on our life from the noah, two from fellow akuma and one we acidently accidentally foiled from an innocence infested maddie.Get more paranoid son.
>>26890679>paranoia is requisite for an AkumaW-w-wait a minute. Isn't it the other way around? Shouldn't our victims be paranoid of us?But seriously. It's just because of this quest that we're paranoid.
>>26890647I am trying to get everyone paranoid because I am sick of getting backstabed and ambushed.A little more forward planing and anticipation of betrayal couldnt hurt.
>>26890707Pity's betrayal has already been factored in.Morgan ordering our death has already been worked through and hints have been given that the true nature of the Noah make them more callous.Liz and Jacqueline were motivated by anger and, honestly, I'm pretty sure we could have resolved that peacefully if we hadn't gone for the "I'll speech them into peacefulness" route.We already knew Maddie was trying to hold back from killing us. Honestly, I wasn't really surprised when we learned that Maddie's human personae was just biding her time, though I assumed that Maddie's own personality was still the dominant controlling force in her body.
>>26890715Everyone should paranoid. What if God comes up with some sort of double Akuma?
"It may be the Alice if the Alice you mean is the Alice we've seen. But how could I know what Alice you mean when I've never seen nor been in this land before?" You reason aloud to the Sand-witch and it ponders the concept for a moment, slowly calming down," A, true true, t'is very true.. Apologies, I've gotten ahead of myself.. Well, by that note if the Alice you've seen isn't the Alice I mean, then certainly you can bring her if you wish, would that do well for your star-crossed Juliet?" The Ham Gestures toward Madeleine, whom smells her rose by another name and smiles tenderly at the tan-skinned and robed creature," Why certainly, that would be lovely.. I apologize for the false alarm at that..""No wrongs have been done! Come now, we go to the after-party!" The Sand-which whistles and one of the monkeys pulls out a great-Grandfather clock and turns the hands to around 7:00p.m. Time fast-forwards, Alice appears, everyone that was apart of your production is in attendance, drinking slap, making active chatter, big talk, and congratulating each other on not breaking a leg. Everyone enjoys appetizers as they're brought about..You eat...> The Cheese with Sausage> The Shellfish> The Mushrooms.> The Melon
>>26890808Mushrooms.>someone put up that pic with the Doctor.>you know the one
>>26890774>Liz and JackieWell duh, we could have just ordered them into usefullness and not harming our family. Unfortunately we seem to be amused by self determination.
>>26890808Eat that melon son.
>>26890808Are Melons Kosher? I think they are but...?
>>26890808because there's no guarantee the mushrooms will once again be cool, I say Melon, that's Kosher right?
>>26890808[X] The MelonI hear the melons around here are nice and firm. Perfect for eating.
>>26890858I was thinking of forced rehab (which is pretty much the same thing). There anger was fueled by their fear. If we had focused on resolving that rather than on just immediately trying to make them happy at that moment...>>26890808Wasn't there something about a shellfish in one of the stories....
>>26890808Don't eat the Melon seeds! I don't remember why, but I think that was a thing.
>>26890808We could have shellfish. Some people think fish isnt meat for some reason.
>>26890833Are they anon... ARE THEY?! They are.
>>26890808Melon!and maybe some of Maddie's melons, if you know what I mean
>>26890878>>26890905Meant to link to that.. Melons are tots Kosher holmes.>>26890914That's not Kosher.. that's not Kosher at all.. Why.. WHY?!
>>26890897Huh, I thought their anger was the result of the Noah losing confidence in them since all the other Akuma around them we suddenly listening to our orders. And then they could suddenly refuse the Noah, and they hated that the close, direct and indestructible relationship of trust and faith they had with their masters was gone, just like that. Fear wasn't so big a part of it I think.
>>26890903Shellfish is totally against kosher, if it comes from the water and doesn't have fins and scales it's against the rules. Shellfish breaks those rules.Cheese in and of itself it fine if the rennet comes from a kosher animal, but it's with meat so that's likely off limits, depending on the meat and how literally we're interpreting things.Melon is fine, mushrooms should be fine.>>26890923Well, as long as we don't have any breast milk and butcher her properly it's technically not against the rules. Granted, we'd just be groping her, which isn't against kosher.
>>26890945Don't you remember what they said about how Faefnir lost the favor of the Noah because of his ability to defy their orders?>>26890966L-l-lewd!
>>26890914>>26890923>>26890966All this reminds me....didn't you pocket a second crit success silly roll that you'd use at your discretion, Duke....?
>>26890923because I want to eat her forbidden fruit, if you know what I mean
>>26890966The fish thing makes all kinds of no sense.Also maddie is made of metal. Metal is Kosher right?
>>26890987I think we used it...
Another thing to remember is that repeating things seems to be looked down upon in this land.
>>26890989....I don't know what you mean.
You take the Melon and the mushroom as passes are made... They are both quite delicious, however you are careful not to sit at a table, what with that Growth rule in mind.. you wouldn't want to suffer that consequence quite yet..Within this gallery you see...>Madeleine>Alice>The Ham Sand Witch>Playing Card Servers(Clubs)>The Dodo Director..(How you know that he's the director, you are'nt quite aware.. You're also not quite sure of how you know that you had to shoot that last scene three times before getting it right...)>The various citizenry of the Village Found that come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and species...> Who do you talk to.> What do you talk about.> Do you kill everyone?> When do you start the killing?> Start killing already.> (Other)
>>26891017>Queen Mab is also present, however you're having trouble finding her as she's so small... She was part of the play too!
>>26891017Talk to the director.Talk about the show, and segue from that into talking about the important people in Wonderland, the movers and shakers who we may want to show off this town's performance to for patronage, and get information on important people that way.
>>26891000No, I'm talking about when we met Ivan again. It was originally supposed to be a crit success silly, but the Duke chose to pocket the silliness to unleash at a different time.
>>26891017[X] Start killing already.Voting for this so we can start the real party.
>>26891038>tfw the option to meet the queen by performing has just occurred.
>>26891056She'll never see it coming.
>>26891017>>26891038This, but I wanna add that we go ask Alice about the Jabberwocky.
I've finally gotten my drawing tablet! It's been years since I've used one, so it will be some time until I can use it right again.
>>26891053My god. You're right! But if we redeem it in wonderland, where everything is silly, don't you think it would turn Grimm?
>>26891210Duke said that he'd be the one who'd choose when to use it.
>>26891199>"To eat.>Or not to eat.>What....is kosher?"
>>26891199That looks like a kick ass sandwitch
>>26891199>Faefnir after a bag of weed
You drift over to the Alice through the pandering crowd of social mites and yakking birds, crushing the remnants of an especially juicy melon between your teeth, the sweet nectar within pouring into your mouth with a refreshing taste. Alice smiles at you upon your elegant approach, and you bow to her, casting a look back to Maddie whom waves at you and speaks to what must be an especially enlightening raven."Say, do you know why a raven is like a writing desk?"You scowl slightly at Alice's odd words, yet turn your expression into one far more palatable," Why, I can't say that I have the faintest idea of the similarity.."Alice smiles, a a knowing grin spread wide," Why, neither do I."You pop a mushroom into your mouth, crushing the soft, and savory morsel," Quite the evening we have here, don't we? Who'd know that an impromptu play could be such a prompt success..""Quite," She smiles at you, holding out a glass of wine," Here's to your success as a Shakespearean actor!"You receive the glass of wine with practiced grace...> Toast with Alice while standing..> Sit down with her.> Toast but do not drink.> (Other)
>>26891373>Segue into talking about the JabberwockyI wish to know more!
>>26891338We'd be absolutely baked.>>26891373[X] Sit down with her."To success. Who's Shakespeare anyways?By the by, since this show has attracted such success I wonder how far we could take it. It may be far easier to enter the court of the Red Queen in this manner than through any sort of skulduggery or stealth. What say you to that?"And also ask about the Jabberwocky, if we can unseal it we may have a potent ally for a fight."
>>26891373[X] Toast with Alice while standing..See if she drinks her wine first.
>>26891440>>26891448Sit or stand, this is the question!
>>26891545Offer a lady a seat first, of course.
>>26891558>4chan - Pass*Offer THE lady...
>>26891558She's already sitting.
>>26891573Oh, well then, it'd be rude to remain standing while speaking to her.Get on her level, damnit!
You take a seat at Alice's table and clink the glasses together in toast before bringing the glas to your lips to sip the drink.It goes down quite smoothly with a refreshing taste vague;y of grapes and other berries for flavor."Say what's Shakespearean anyway?"Alice sips her drink in turn and gives you a simple shrug," Why, I haven't the faintest idea, though the answer should make itself known given enough time.. Like anything after all...""Quite," You stare into the wine-glass, the liquid seeming to swim around," So, I've heard tell of this.. Jabberwocky.. would it be possible..."Alice raises an eyebrow as an amused smile makes its home upon her face," Oh? You've heard.. The poor dear's been captured by the Queen. She'd slay it if she only had the means to..." Alice leans her small frame over the table speaking soft and low as to avoid other people's listening," However, I'm the one that's found the Vorpal Sword.. The only thing that can.." She situates herself back within her seat, looking thoughtful once more," Certainly, there should be a way to release it, however that'll require effort on both of our parts.. It certainly won't be easy, though it'd prove to be a fantastic guest to the Queen's greatest party..."Oh yes, and you're luck that you took a seat...">Wonderland Rule #12: When drinking wine while standing, you are bound to shrink..."Just thought that I'd let you know since the surprise has lost its appeal." Alice rests her head upon a hand, her elbow planted into the table," I'm also quite surprised that you've been so calm considering that you likely could've just killed all of them..."You only smile as you sip at your wine," All in good time Alice.. All in good time...">End Thread...
>Next thread will be Friday at 20:00! Servertime!>>26891199I see good things coming out of this.. very good things... Certainly cuts out the Scanner middle-man, right?
>>26891746Thanks for the game, looking forward to the next.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26884868/Archived, gentlemen.
Messin' with brushes and stuff.
>>26891746I'll probably still scan things just because until i'm used to drawing with a tablet again, it's faster to use paper.
>>26891857Holy shit, Faefnir would be terrifying to run into in an alley on a dark night. I especially like the glowing teeth.
>>26891857Minor correction: Faefnir's fire is blue.
>>26892055I thought his fire coming from his eyes when the helmet is up was blue? Either way, nothing hue/saturation can't fix.
>tfw time zones work against youAh well. I wonder where Maashima is. We could use him as fodder
>>26893455Yeah. I was actually thinking of this too, but Maashiima was probably sent off to one of the areas Alice partitions away from the main area of Wonderland (mentioned here >>26886506).
>>26892128>>26891857Love 'em both. This is what you get when you do a mechanical demon right!
>>26895906Oh. Hey Duke. Was just about to go to sleep.Got a question that I'd been meaning to ask. Maashiima's ability to be empowered by suffering is separate from the magic he uses to manipulate sympathy/apathy, right? That is to say, it's not connected to mana at all, right?Also, how fast is Maddie compared to Faefnir (without the use of the booster listed in the pastebin).
>>26895974The core abilities of Noah and Akuma are both based upon Dark Matter. It is true that Maashiima's ability, and you've only seen part of it is separate from his manipulation of sympathy and apathy.The same goes for your Creation Engine/Oven, however when it comes to baking Faefnir now uses fire magic to break things down to use for the oven part. So aside from that, Faefnir's primarey weapons are his core attributes, Ravenous Body, and Creation Oven.Also, the reason that he can still fly is because he has wings. Otherwise, he wouldn't be able to fly. Chock it up to Wonderland being weird like that.Maddie's stats are yours, yet scrambled.Strength is 7Durability is 6Agility 5Willpower 5Personality 5
>>26896049Wonderful.The White Rabbit will get to taste our Croquette after all.....wait a minute....So for us to use our Creation Engine, we'll need to somehow break down whatever we want to use as material without the use of our fire magic, huh?
>>26896154Yes, for the bread-portions of it.Get those sticks ready...Then again, if you imagine the Croquettes hard enough they should appear... Though you saw what happened with the Ham Sand-Witch. It may be a recurring character...
