Last Thread : http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29321811/Twitter : https://twitter.com/81DEsW1xz4NChar Sheet : Next PostYou are a wolf, and you are being hunted, but you are also hunting. The human, Hasdrubal the Tracker, has chased you from your territory and through another. He beset you and your new pack with hounds and arrows, slaying one of the weaker wolves. You killed his dogs but could not harm him. Because of the hardship you brought, you were chased from your new pack and left to die so that they could escape and recover.You fled down the mountains, chasing prey and fleeing from Hasdrubal. It was at the joining of several streams where you found the first human who hasn’t tried to kill you, an old man who smells of goats. Hasdrubal ran him through with his human claw.Now a fierce and ice ridden wind is blowing at your back, and Hasdrubal has been blinded.>Fight>Flight

Rolled 1, 5 + 4 = 10You have chosen to FightPlease rollFor those of you new to Wolf Quest, the dice mechanics are very simple. There are two types of checks right now, Fight, and Flight. To do either of them, you roll a pool of 3 1d20, each in their own post so everyone gets to contribute, and take the highest but crits trump. Then you add the associated modifier, which you can find in the character sheet I postedFight : 6Flight : 5Furthermore, natural 1's mean an automatic failure, and natural 20's ignore legend rulesDon't forget about Sword Dancer (Whitefang) | Before your roll, you may accumulate a hunger to automatically avoid damage from a bladeAnd then the Exertion ability, you can accumulate 1 hunger to roll some more dice and hope for a crit, but there are diminishing returns as you get hungrier and hungrier

>>29344661>>29344672>>29344691Sounds like a plan
I have a good feeling about this.
You growl and let the bloodlust build in you as you prowl around the stones to face the human. On his back is his bow and spear, in his hand the human claw. It’s a weapon you know well how to avoid, ever since your fight on the cliffs, where Treebark died.The storming winds are blinding him, keeping shards of ice high in the air and avoiding you. To protect his eyes, he’s forced to fight with one hand shielding them. He won’t be able to draw his spear like this, giving you the advantage. You approach from the opposite side as the man who smells of goats and lunge in. Hasdrubal slashes down at you, but you dance around it with ease.Hunger : 1/5Your fangs easily find his calf, but when you bite you can’t pierce through the thick skins guarding him. You switch your footing and pull, tripping him off balance. You get a quick bite in on his thigh as he stumbles forward, but another swipe from the human claw drives you back.The wind continues in full strength, and his attention switches from you to the stones.>Continue the assault>Attack his spare weapons>Other
>>29344808So far so good, we don't have a fucked-up luck to high enemy rolls like last time. Please, don't roll 20 today Romulus. Like, ever. Plz.
>>29344826>Attack his spare weaponsWe're going to have to run this guy down. We need to remove his tactical advantages, starting with his spear and bow.
>>29344808Yeah, the situation is pretty cool right now.>>29344826>Continue the assaultWe can easily spend at least 2 more hunger to take 0 damage as long he uses 1 of his hands to cover his eyes.
>>29344826>>Attack his spare weapons
>>29344826>Attack his spare weaponsHis spear gave him like +8 last time. It would be nice to get rid of it.
> attack his spare weaponswe can avoid the blade, can't be killed with a bow, but we can't do as much against the spear
Rolled 5, 1 + 4 = 10Alright, going for the spear has itPleae roll
>>29344826It's going to be interesting if he fends us off to the point where we have to retreat and he has to give up for now....Is it possible for a human to have a legend Spark? If so I can imagine him gaining something like "Eternal Rival" with us.

Please remember to take your rolls off when they're not needed. If any roll is made after Rom asks for one, he'll consider that as forfeiting our right to use sword dance.
Hasdrubal turns from you and marches over to the stones standing in the snow. With his attention elsewhere, he exposes his back. Strapped to his back and covered in leather is the spear, you can see the stone tip of it sticking out of the top. You jump on his back and grab the leather case. You growl and pull at it, but the leather is strong.Hasdrubal shouts and swings at you, but can’t bring his claw to use while you’re atop his back. At last, the leather snaps. You tumble off his back, rolling through the snow end over end with the spear in your mouth.When you right yourself, Hasdrubal kicks over one of the smaller stones, knocking it away with ease. The man who smells of goats shouts out, trying to struggle back to his feet. The wound Hasdrubal gave him was dire and he is bleeding heavily, but still tries to face the tracker.You start gnawing at the leather case, trying to break through it to snap the spear. Surprisingly, Hasdrubal ignores you. Instead, he digs his feet into the snow and plants his shoulder against the largest stone. When the man who smells of goats approaches, he stops for a moment to lash out with his human claw, knocking the old man’s branch away.The storm has lessened.Don’t let him do that.>Drop the spear, attack>Break the spear>Other

>>29345074>Drop the spear, attackIf your mortal enemy ignores you and goes for pagan altar, it means that he wants to become one with SATAN and bring Antichrist to earth.

You toss the spear aside. The power that is helping you is clearly in trouble, and you can’t take Hasdrubal on your own. You dash past the man who smells of goats and do the only thing you know. You pounce on him.Your weight slams into him, knocking him against the stone. The ice cracks, then crumbles. The stone, Hasdrubal, and you all fall over. The immense weight of the stone is even enough to break through the snow and ice to the frozen stream it had been in front of.The wind stops.Hasdrubal smiles.The man who smells of goats cries out in anguish and begins sobbing.>Grab the spear and run>Maul him>Other

>>29345464We pushed him towards the stone that we were supposed to protect from him. It takes one roll that we fail for him to have enough time to grab him.
>>29345500>have enemy pinnedAre we reading the same quest? The only thing that kept him pinned was the snowstorm and that's destroyed now because of us.
>>29345487mmm... shit and piss on the spear.
>>29345450We have to maul him, also from last thread Romulus said he has like x5 more intelligence than us, he can just strap his knife to long branch and make new spear. Better maul his hands/face now, we won't have better chance. His spear is meters away anyway.

>>29345678What this guy said. Sword Dancer wouldn't protect against a Nat 20 anyways. That's why Romulus said it wasn't an option.
>>29345687>That would slow combat down dramaticallyAnd that's bad how? Didn't you yourself said that this world isn't going to pull any punches?
>>29345687then don't let impulsive ones dictate over others. I'd rather have slow combat and better chance at survival Thank you very much. This quest is hard enough already
>>29345709Calm your tits down. We'd be down to 2 or 1 hp, we still can do something, like fleeing with a spear in next rounds.
You start biting anything you can get your mouth around. His arms are covered in leathers and cold stone that rips away at the flesh in your mouth when it touches, but eventually you get a mouthful of his forearm. He had been trying to push you away and evade your mouth with a flurry of swipes and twisting around. But now you have his arm, and you’ve pushed him back to the point that his head is in the water.You squeeze, trying to break through his protection. Your fangs aren’t quite sharp enough to cut through it, but you can feel his bones creaking. You drool just a bit at the thought of Hasdrubal’s blood.But you were too focused on attacking, and not on defending yourself.Hasdrubal jams his small claw into the wound on your shoulder.Health : 3The wind is picking up again, but its very weak compared to what it was.>Try to break his arm regardless>Grab the spear and flee>Flee>Other

>can't float a 2 inch dowel down this stream>you fuckers think we can drown someone in itfor fuck's sake, it was just fluff to show that we have the upper hand
>>29345803Yes! Our nemesis humiliated and destined to spend rest of his life as handicapped beggar in his village Shitholeburg.
>>29345803>>29345828>Letting him liveYeah, no.
>>29345687It would be better than now. It is obvious we are going to choose to use sword dancer when enemy get a 20 but we couldnt because someone rolled, and that will almost always be the case.
>>29345842Man, it was said before: we can't use legends/perks against 20s. That's how big forest gangsta Treebark died - he was offed by 20s. He became less of a fearsome legend and more of a old bear as a fight progressed.
>>29345868He was offed by rolling 1s.And what would happen if the enemy rolled 19? Do you think that we WOULDN'T use sword dancer if we had 1/5 hunger?
>>29345868Irrelevant as >>29345879 pointed. My point stands.
Let me be clear on a few thingsFirst, Sword Dancer is from a legend, natural 20's ignore itSecond, it's winter, water levels are incredibly low
>>29345902Okay, I still think we should break his arm.
>>29345902lets break the arm thenwhich arm are we breaking anyway? Left or right?
>>29345902>First, Sword Dancer is from a legend, natural 20's ignore itYou keep saying that, but prepare for an enormous bitching if you don't let us use sword dancer against a 19+whatever just because one chucklefuck decided to roll.

To all people bitching - stop. Random 20s and 1s and going with it are what makes this quest so fun. Just deal with it and move on.
>>29346022I think OP is using d20 on purpose for high crit rate.>>29346030Doesn't matter man, it is the choice of dying and letting the quest finish or waiting few minutes to get better chance at survival.I think most will take the latter option.

You ignore the pain as best you can and try to crush his arm, but this protection proves too great. When he pulls the dagger out, you’re forced to jump away lest he stab you again. A large amount of flesh seems to have been ripped apart in your mouth and you’re bleeding, but that is the last of your worries.Hasdrubal quickly jumps to his feet, snatching up his human claw again. He glances at the spear on the far side of the clearing.

Rolled 14I think what I'm going to do is change it so that crits don't trump, just that their presence turns off legends. 20s would still be chosen of courseSo for example, he just critted his defense, which turned off Fearsome (+3 Fight)Writing
>>29346316Oh shit you are right. Though I think his crit will prevent him from taking damage/tripping, though it will still stop him from going for spear.
Hasdrubal takes off, going for the spear. He takes the long way around the stones rather than going through the opening in them, forcing you to chase after him. With him running away from you, he is just like a prey. You know how to take down prey.But when you snap your teeth forward, you fall short and he finds himself several feet farther ahead of you. He dives, snatches up the spear and rolls through the snow to come to his feet facing you. You snarl as he puts the deadly weapon between you and him.But behind you the man who smells of goats seems to be righting the small stone that had been knocked over, and has part of Hasdrubal’s attention.Protect him.>Attack>Flee>Wait for him to attack the old man>Other

>>29346432Circle around as best we can and protect Goat Man.Time is on our side.
>>29346499>>29346480Yeah, these. Keep just outside his reach so cant go after the blind man but can't reach us either.
>>29346515>losing their shitI don't think you know what this means.
>>29346521then that means we can't flank him if he goes for the goat man.Better keep him between us and the goat man
>>29346535Uhh... maybe?What does it mean then?
So let me get this straight, your plan is to provoke him into attacking you to buy the old man time?
>>29346579Yes, but maybe because it would be normally our round to attack, use Sword Dancer to give us bonus for countering that attack.
>>29346605Sword Dancer doesn't work against spears
>>29346605Sword dancer only works on swords incase you didn't know.
>>29346579>Do you REALLY want to do this?N-no, we don't.Just wait for hi to attack the goat man.>>29346605don't think it works with spears
>>29346579Protect the old man!
>>29346579No, I think the best course of action is stay out of reach from the spear and the second he turns his attention to the goat man, THEN we attack.We can probably give the goat man some time by prowling around and feinting a few times though, what do you guys think?
>>29346579>>29346616Ok, I still vote to buy time for an old man.
>>29346579But keep out of his range. Basically put him between us and the man so he cant attack the man cause we are at his back but keep away from the spear so he cannot attack us.
What the fuck do you think your plan is if he just soaks the damage from us and murders goat man?
>>29346648to be honest I don't think the old man will succeed.>>29346704we flee
>>29346711Well, I'm hoping that if the Goat Man puts up another stone, the blizzard will get stronger and that will give us better odds against the Hunter.
Rolled 5, 8, 11 + 8 = 32So you'll attack him when he goes for the goat man, let's see how that fares
Rolled 19, 9 = 28>>29346740
here is the plan
Rolled 5, 17 = 22>>29346762well then, let's see if it's enough
Rolled 7 + 6>>29346740
Rolled 14 + 6>>29346740
>>29346740Fucking spear and this fucking man's fucking +8 modifier.
Rolled 17, 18, 19 + 6 = 60Old man tied itAre you a bad enough wolf to take Hasdrubal down?

Rolled 4 + 6>>29346800We sure are!
Rolled 17 + 6>>29346800Maybe
>>29346832nope, would you like to exert? You'd get 4 chances to get a 20
>>29346800WTFare you cheating ?
Rolled 5 + 6>>29346800Gogo luck
>>29346844I vote yes, what about you guys?
Rolled 7 + 6>>29346844Fiiiiiiiine, lets exert.
Exert? We might not have another chance with alive Goat man.
>>29346844Nope. it is just as likely we'll get a 1 and there is no point in ever using that thing.
>>29346844>>29346860>>29346863I just don't care anymore
Rolled 6 + 6>>29346844Yes.
>>29346878new crit rules, the 1 wouldn't trumpnot to mention there arent' degrees of success anyways
>>29346878oh yeah, thisExert fucking sucks
You have chosen to exertHunger : 2/5please roll
Rolled 1 + 6>>29346929
Rolled 17 + 6>>29346929Come on 20, come on, come on!
Exert again then.
Rolled 13 + 6>>29346933>>29346935>>29346929>>29346956>1s and 11s again
>>29346933>>29346956Yall fuckers are cursed, you can no longer reach his roll because you lost fearsomeWriting
Welp...I'd exert again and if it fails, just go with it.
>>29346964>Yall fuckers are cursed, you can no longer reach his roll because you lost fearsomeGodamnit
>>29346964Doesn't only the first roll count when exerting or did you change that too?
>>29346989The dice pool depends on hunger, I think.
>>29346989that was never the caseYou had 1 hunger, so you had 4 rolls to improve with, instead you crit failed and lost fearsome
Rolled 41>>29346432Rolling to seduce
>>29346964>>29346967>>29346982>>29346988Guys, I'm thinking it might be time to bug the fuck out. We're not strong enough to kill Hasdrubal.Let's do the thing that Whitefang does best: survive. Maybe it's time to leave this valley.
>>29347001>>29347003I see.But only nat 20 can improve our previous rolls when we use exert, right?
>>29347015I'm ok with this.
>>29347015The damn hunter will follow us and this is like the best chance we'll get in a while so i prefer to stick around till we are down to 2 hp before we flee.
>>29347036I dropped that clause actually, simplifies how things work
>>29347015We can do this after we stop losing everyone we care about.I mean, we lost our wolfu, we lost our old pack, we lost our new packmember, we are losing the only human that was kinda kind to us, if we go back to our old territory hunter will track us back and we'll lose our Pa...
>>29347015Yeah, I'm getting that feeling as well.
>>29347015Yeah, I agree.Sorry Goat Man for coming and ruining you day.
You snarl and snap your fangs at him as you dance just on the edge of his reach, trying to provoke him. But his attention is on the man who smells of goats. You edge around so that you’ll be able to attack his back if he were to go after the human.You growl as he starts backing away from you, and towards the human. You can’t get close to him though because he keeps the spear pointed at you.The wind picks up dramatically as you see the old man clench his hands together. The storm returns anew as Hasdrubal spins around. But the old man had closed his eyes, and couldn’t react in time. You pounce as Hasdrubal lunges, but are too late. The tip of the spear rips through the man’s heart before you’re even off the ground, and when you do reach him, he merely twists and bucks you off.The wind dies with the old man. But Hasdrubal is clenching his eyes and cries blood.Kill him. Kill him. Kill him. Kill him. Kill him. Kill him. >Attack the spear>Flee>Maul>OtherLegend Spark : Seraph, Voice of the Wind

>>29347472>>29347473>>29347475Romulus wants the hunter to be some sort of unbeatable demigod, no use trying to talk any sense to him.

>>29347499It seems the only thing that matters here is dice.
>>29347518yeah yeah, keep sucking Romulus cock.

>>29347552>If you had attacked his spear, what do you think would have happened?We'd get stabbed by it and die?
>>29347552I'm kind of surprised you're letting him attack with the spear given that it's buried inside Goat Man right now, but okay.
>>29347552And I did not choose this path.
>>29347552>If you had attacked his spear, what do you think would have happened?Nothing because I'm sure that you would have made up some bullshit to protect him?I gave up caring when the hunter was able to use a spear with one of his arms torn up.
>>29347575You mean he impaled the goatman.
>>29347552we would eat the spear tip and die?
>>29347552Strategy doesn't matter in your quest only roll high to succeed.
>>29347584You failed in breaking his arm as you'll recallEnough whining. If the fight is too hard, don't fight it. If everything is too hard, leave.
ehlet's just run away guysassuming we still live that is
A human without eyes can fight a giant wolf on even ground (both +6 modifier with 3 rolls)Seems legit.
>>29347618We won't know if a fight is hard until we roll.We won't know if our rolls are good until we fight.
>>29347618Their complaining about the lack of effective strategies which is going to kill your quest.
>>29347639The storm that was blinding him is gone, the druid is dead.
>>29347639now that I think about it, aren't we close?You can't use Spears when the foe is within the strike range.Or can you? I'm not sure.
>>29347639He's operating on a higher level of bullshit
The ice has partially blinded him, spilling blood into his vision and down his face. This won’t go away for some time. You press your advantage. Hasdrubal swears as you evade the tip of his spear and bite back down on his thigh. You tear him to the ground as he shouts, and shed his blood anew.Then he looks at you with his blinded eyes. He pulls the spear back, over your head. You release him just as he stabs down, slicing open your chest.Health : 2Hasdrubal slowly pulls himself back to his feet as you snarl and back away.>Attack the spear>Maul>Flee>Other
>>29347618>Lets keep the man between us, lets keep him busy and prolong this and attack from behind.>Lets jump around farting and hope the mann falls overThese have the same chance of success.
>>29347681You can but they're not as effective.
>>29347693Flee.We just tore up his leg, Goatman is dead, and the stones are busted.Let's get the fuck out of here.
>>29347678Dude hes fucking blind period
>>29347693>MaulIt is not a story anymore but a rollfest. Getting killed would at least give me closure before i drop this.
>>29347694Strategy doesn't matter only dice.

You fuckers are absolute cancer
>>29347693Time to flee

>>29347693Just ran away
>>29347693>MaulWe can do it!
>>29347777we just mauled him again
>>29347693>>MaulRip him apart.
You turn and run. You pick a random direction to the woods and take it, leaving behind Hasdrubal and the dead human, leaving behind whatever power was in those stones. You run along the thin game trails left by prey and flee. By the time night falls, you pick a spot and collapse, exhausted and wounded.
>>29347860it was 7 with the maul.
>>29347693I saw we flee, also i just read the other threads and this is a great quest so far.
>>29347916No it's not.
>>29347874We became a really wonderful legend. ;____________;
>>29347916I'm with you, man. I still think this quest is pretty good. /tg/ throws shitstorms in quests, it happens all the time.
>>29347977shitstorm was because of problems the quest has not players
>>29347951if it's not why are you here?
>>29347977I'm the other guy and yeah, after a while there are some people who only bitch. Still, haters have some good points like the one with using strategy and not. I love this quest though and want to follow it as long as possible.
>>29348022We died in the first thread and only revived because of a Nat 20 on a post begging for a second chance.It's been hard as dicks the whole time.
>>29347977/tg/ can't into the mind of a 2 intelligence wolf>what do you mean we aren't smart enough to hide tracks in fresh fallen snow?>what do you mean the trained hunter let us attack him so he could focus on taking out the fucking wind god that was ganking him?>What do you mean a legendary tracker hasn't lost our trail?
>>29348029because it fooled into thinking it was.
>>29348040The difficulty is imaginary as far as I care.It's more you have real no control over what happens.
>>29348095Romulus has been rolling in front of us the whole time, so I'm not sure why you think the difficulty is imaginary. We just got boned hard by the dice today until the very end, where we escaped from the Hunter.
>>29348134He means actions doesn't effect anything, only roll does. Like>>29347694
>>29348134The problem is the dicepool barely changed when he became FUCKING BLIND
>>29348134The difficulty is coming from the DICE.In the end fake difficulty where chance is arbiter of our fate.
>>29348134Too many rolls too little story anon. It has turned into a rollfest.
>>29348095>>29348095 we could always run away from a superior foe. I understand why we didn't, we wanted more of the friendly goat man and stayed to save him if not for him we would have ran away long time ago
>>29348293That relies on rolling too...
You are a 2 intelligence wolfYou are not privy to the world. You see what does happen, not what could have or would have.The fact of the matter is, you made bad decisions and assumed your enemy would be stupid. The entire fight was spent with Hasdrubal fending you off while dealing with Seraph, but you assumed it was the other way.You had the chance to flee with ease. You chose to fight.You had the chance to snap his spear. You chose to try, and fail, to protect the shrine.You had the chance to disarm him. You chose to maul him.You saw the modifiers he was getting, you know the modifiers you get. You knew the odds.
>>29348293Then look back to see he is about an hour away?
>>29348333Sorry that a sabertoothed wolf couldnt beat your blindman swinging around a spear
>>29348349One fucking wolf isn't that dangerous. It's not a tiger. There's a reason they hunt in pack. The other guy is a hero, and is not even blinded anymore. Gee, fucking surprise the outcome is what it is.
>>29348333We had bad dice rolls and people didn't think.win some, lose some. Don't get into an argument over it with the posters, just frustrated and nothing is going to come of it.
Rolled 3>>29348333dont bother with the trollsNever argue with an idiot. They will only drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience
>>29348333>You had the chance to flee with ease. You chose to fight.Fleeing was never an option when we were one wolf, 1 shaman and 1 wind spirit versus only one human hunter>You had the chance to snap his spear. You chose to try, and fail, to protect the shrine.You are an absolute scumbag if you think that was our fault when you we DID take his spear and YOU railroaded us into just bumping the hunter into the rock because our attack failed.>You had the chance to disarm him. You chose to maul him.WE ATTACKED HIS FUCKING ARM AND IT HAD NO EFFECT
>>29348384We are a giant sabertoothed wolfHow the fuck is a blind person able to beat us rolls or not
>>29348333>You saw the modifiers he was getting, you know the modifiers you get. You knew the odds.You are not hearing me. I've been voting to run till yesterday because he is a strong opponent but lets look at two legit complaints:-strategy has no effect. everything just depends on a roll. we could decide to howl to scare him to death and it would have the same chance as a legitimate fighting strategy.-The man was practically blind but could still fight on even footing with whitefang. No matter how good a fighter you are, a human who cant see is practically useless.
>>29348333Don't bother with any trolls.Choices were made, dice were rolled, and things happened. Time to see where we go from here.
>>29348400Jesus chirst are you a fucking retard?
>>29348419Also if you havent been paying attentionThe ice storm made him PERMANENTLY BLIND
>>29348333there's no point in arguing op. Let's move on. We survived and that is all that matters.I don't agree with the dice but it want your fault we couldn't get a break. At least you didn't have him do full 4 damage with the last spear attack.
>>29348384>and is not even blinded anymore.Are you retarded? He was blinded at the last fight. He didn't magically heal between.>>29348409>trollsHow the fuck is any of the complains trolling attempts?Are >>29348397 and >>29348407 trolls too?
>>29348333All action rely on luck.That is our complaint.Not the difficulty after all I am a Dark Souls fan.It's the lack of control we have.It doesn't matter how what we do all that matter is the dice.
>>29347693>The ice has partially blinded him, spilling blood into his vision and down his face. This won’t go away for some time.>>29348447partially != permanently
>>29348454>At least you didn't have him do full 4 damage with the last spear attack.He couldn't, we both had 19 as our rolls.
>>29348479That post was the last time we attacked him, his eyes were useless when we attacked him.
>>29348400You know saber teeth are only good for ripping out throats and are shit for biting anything else, right?>>29348407>-strategy has no effect. everything just depends on a roll. we could decide to howl to scare him to death and it would have the same chance as a legitimate fighting strategy.You should watch the morale of the characters and what weapons they switch to. Strategy has an effect>>29348447>PERMANENTLY BLIND>>29348464>guaranteed chance to break his spear>or try to break his armBoth disarm him of his spear, one let him destroy the shrine, the other gave us a chance of hurting him while disarming him>>29348397We crit failed that roll you dumbass
>>29348527>You should watch the morale of the characters and what weapons they switch to. Strategy has an effectNot here it didn't. The hunter always rolled against us with the exact same rolls every time.
>>29348527>or try to break his armWe tried to break his arm the dice gods said no.
>>29348560You're fucking blind thenHe has +8 on the spear, +5 on the bow, and +4 on the sword and dagger, and they all do different amounts of damage. When we were pinning him, he switched to the dagger, when we broke away, he got the spear. When we're far away, he uses the bow. When he's not fighting us, he uses the swordThe spear was clearly the biggest fucking threat, and you fucks voted to try to protect the shrine rather than breaking the god damned thing.If he's forced back to the sword at a measly +4, we have the advantage spirit or not. ESPECIALLY when you factor in Sword DancerYou fucks want strategy? PLAY TO YOUR FUCKING POWERS
The blindness did affect him-2 to all rolls.Not much but it did still affect him. Also he had one good eye
>>29348634We get powers through dice and we lose them through dice.
>>29348659>>29347693>Then he looks at you with his blinded eyes
>>29348527>>29348634>guaranteed chance to break his spear>or try to break his arm>Both disarm him of his spear, one let him destroy the shrine, the other gave us a chance of hurting him while disarming himLet me spell it out what happened:Snowstorm happened, hunter can only use 1 hand/sword.We take his bow and spear while the shaman was bleeding on the ground.Hunter doesn't make attempt to get his weapons back and rushed to the stones and starts breaking them up. Its a choice between TRYING to break the spear or risking the snowstorm being stopped.We attack the hunter, double ones are rolled and the QM says that not only we didn't stopped him but we aided him into completely destroying the stones.We are both on the ground here, we make and attempt to rush him and injure his arm to stop him from using the spear.It fails because of rolls.The shaman starts arranging the stones, we try to protect him.It fails because of rolls.You see where I'm going with this?
>>29348634The only one blind here is you, stop sucking Romulus cock so much he made some mistakes too.
>>29348694>guaranteed chance to break his spear>implying we wouldnt be rolling regardless of what we chose for that turn.
>>29348694The dice are the enemies of all player.
>>29348714>Rolling>In a quest threadwell gee anon, and here i thought we were flipping penny's.
>>29348733Yeah, sure, you are right because the dice is used in the same manner in all quest in /tg/.
>>29348733>The point>Your head
>>29348694>>29348694>>29348694I bashed on butthurt people ITT, but this is legit. I specifically thought about a way to do something about our shit luck, proposed here >>29346499 a strategy and was all for previous guys plans to maul hands of a fucker, but it all failed and it's kinda...bitter.
>>29348714Exactly. >>29348728>>29348733You are both right and wrong. The problem here is that Romulus essentially rolls for the DC that we must beat instead of just setting it on a flexible stage like every other good quest in /tg/ does.
>autistic players ruin another great questle sigh
We all said or piece guysnow let's just continuethese arguments are going nowhere
>>29348799>nowhereThat's exactly where this quest is going.
>>29348799NO SOMEBODY IS WRONG ON THE INTERNET
>>29348333Still waiting for that update.
>>29348766He rolls so that the outcome isn't blamed on him. If a QM has something bad happen to the players and they don't get to roll they call him an asshole and the quest unfair. This is a quest where we will get shit on constantly, bad things will always be happening to us, so he makes it biased but impartial>>29348799Rom is gone bro. He ain't going to continue in this shit.>>29348714When have we ever rolled against an object? Did we have to roll to eat? To find our way? To hear the wolf howls?We only roll when we're opposedBreaking the spear when we took it would have been garunteed, but it would have taken enough time that he would have broken the shrine.>>29348694Snowstorm blinds himwe take his spear as he starts attacking the shrinewe abandon the spear because hes attacking the shrinewe attack him because hes attacking the shrine and fail horriblywe try to break his arm but fail horriblywe try to attack him instead of going back for the spear to break itwe pretend that we're a bigger threat than the thing he OBVIOUSLY cares more aboutwe get surprised he ignores us to attack the shrine againyes we had bad rolls, but you people are fucking retarded
>>29348815I'm sure op learned some lessons today. Maybe not. I don't care. Let's continue. We got exceptionally shitty luck today. If it went exact opposite we wouldn't be whining how easy Hunter was to kill despite our shitty suggestions
>>29348888he would have put 1/2 or something if there was going to be morehe rage quit
>>29348916>We only roll when we're opposed>Breaking the spear when we took it would have been garunteed, but it would have taken enough time that he would have broken the shrine.I don't think it is so. If it was, then it should have been stated cause i for one assumed we would roll since we are rolling for everything.
>>29348916>>29348925The system needs to be diceless
>>29348916>Breaking the spear when we took it would have been garunteed,I somehow really doubt that, especially when Romulusaka Fronk said that we had trouble ripping the leather case the spear/bow was from the hunter.
>>29349001There's nothing wrong with diceless
>>29349027In this kind of struggle there is you dumbass. One of two things will happen, guaranteed victory mode engaged, or Rom kills us for being this god damned retarded and everyone calls him an asshole for wanting to run a hard quest>>29348994aren't you cute
>>29348994Fronk? A fat guy from 99 chan who had his own board for insane/awesome MSPaint scribbles and who played on nintendo with a guy who recieved a blowjob from his mom? I loved that fatso.
>>29349027Yes there is. It doesn't have to be one of the shitty extremes you know.
>>29348960no way he can't be this thin skinnedI bet he is enjoying the shit storm
>>29349077There are different types of diceless you dumbass.
>>29349120>no way he can't be this thin skinned>Implying
>>29349120he doesn't do well with false accusations
>>29349162>implying they're not accurate
>>29349162As an impartial third party who has just finished reading through the archives:Actually, alot of their points are accurate. Strategy is largely marginalized in this quest. When decisions are made, they have no real impact on how well things seem to go, they are merely deciding what action you make the exact same roll for. It gives a faux sense of difficulty because player agency is largely absent, its just deciding what text romulus writes to describe what happens next (instead of deciding WHAT ACTUALLY happens next). I don't think, however, that romulus did it on purpose. It was probably just a bad choice for mechanics. But it's still causing the previously mentioned problems, which WILL kill his quest if it hasn't already
>>29349277Thank you doctor for diagnosing the problem.
>>29349277The other issue as I see it is the nature of combat. It's incredibly dice heavy for a system that only uses a d20, which causes a huge number of crits both high and low. Usually, critical failures end up being way worse for players than critical successes are beneficial (This is just the way critfails/successes work, its one characters stacking critfails vs the world), and all it takes is one sad string of rolling 12 dice per encounter to fuck them sideways.
>>29349355>Thank you doctor for diagnosing the problem.No problem Anon.
>>29349120Looks like you might have been wrong.
>>29349557It sucks to be wrong.There are bunch of people who want to continue this despite everything, no need to drop it.
>>29347721Damn, i at least wanted my closure. Well, i'll just ignore that last update and imagine we died fighting the hunter.
>>29349665But we escaped and the hunter is slowly bleeding out, why would you prefer dying?
>>29349711Isn't >>29347721 explanatory enough?
Rom can you start a new thread, continuing where we left off?This one has been trashed and will not recover.
>>29349999i'll second this. Things didn't go well for us, it may be poor choices, or poor luck, but that's how it went. If people are unhappy with the system, then that's an issue outside of what happened in the last fight. either way, i would hope that this great quest doesn't end like this
>>29349999Nice quads.Anyway, the quest is meant to be hardcore, and people have made some pretty stupid decisions and made even worse rolls, not everything goes the way you think it will. This is mary sue guard harem quest. It does seem a little rail roady at times, but I think that's because Rom is writing things from a 2 int wolf there are only so many things he could do. I really hope people haven't ruined one of the more interesting quests, but I think they might have
>>29349999>>29350081agreelets continueYeah the system is not great and not fair but we were warned from the start how hard t was going to be.If people don't like it, it is their problem. Maybe Rom will change a few things but no need to be so hostile and antagonizing.
>>29350203>hardcoreAgain, faux difficulty. Don't use hardcore like a buzzword.
