Last Thread : http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30169685/Twitter : https://twitter.com/81DEsW1xz4NChar Sheet : Next PostYou are Whitefang, the Terrible, the great wolf of the woods. You have allied yourself with the black wolf Schatten, and the homunculus of Caecilia, the Beautiful. Winter is beginning to break, spring will be upon you and your pack soon, but an unimaginably large pack of foul smelling humans have invaded your land and besieged it. Caecilia used her power to manipulate and morph the forest spirit Nadel, die Verdrehte into a nightmare. Now, Captain Abirami and his men seek to burn everything to the ground, and will come for you next."If Caecilia dies, I don’t know what will happen to me,“ the homunculus urges as the three of you watch the guards lead Caecilia forward. Captain Abirami is laughing to his men, and seems to be in agreement with Cailan’s master. There are twelve of the strange smelling humans spread around the clearing with fire in hand, ready to burn Nadel, and next to the dominus is six of his men along with Cailan, Champion of the Arena.>Circle around, look for Captain Abirami’s other men>Ambush one of the firebearers>Expose yourself>Attack ... >Flee>Ask the homunculus something>Other

>>30282753So, the invaders (Abirami) wants to destroy every legend. They are the strange smelling ones.The dominus is the boss of Caecilia (that has shown some skills in crafting legends, also killed wolfu) and Cailan (presumably another legend)Have I got stuff right?
>>30283005Yes, but dominus is Caecilia's wife
>>30283041FUCKHusband, not wife
i...i can't decide.
>>30283065And he's not a legend t our, homunculus or abirami's knowledge? Also he's basically giving up any fight against the invaders according to what we're seeing
>>30283196I know... I have the feeling there's no good choice. I'd rule out the obviously bad one which are attack and flee though.
>>30283213He is not a legend, but he is a commander of men.Let me repost the last update, it covered a lot Schatten is growling quietly, almost loud enough for them to hear. But the soldiers are turned inwards, their attention towards Nadel. “I would advise caution, to both of you. The man in the center is not ordinary, and I believe both Cailan and Caecilia are coming here. Seven legends in the same place might cause trouble,” the homunculus whispers. “You count yourself?” “Of course, a girl must always think well of herself, even if I don’t have a name. I’m waiting for you to fix that by the way,” she responds. The messenger man has been led off to the side, the strange smelling man behind him has his sword drawn. The leader in the center is addressing his men. “So it would seem that the whipped slave has stood up for himself finally. Or maybe he’s just his bitch’s toy? Dancing her dance for us. It would explain the dress!” his men all laugh at that. “I would speak terms Abirami,” a man announces from the opposite side of the grove. He’s approaching the clearing with several guards on either side, and behind him is Cailan, but the warrior seems smaller than last you saw him. The leader, Captain Abirami, chuckles at that. “We gave you our terms. I don’t see,” “And I will meet them,” the Dominus states, cutting Captain Abirami off. The two men stare at each other as they meet in the burnt clearing. “You would give us access to your stores of supplies? Allow us to destroy this abomination in your forest?” “In exchange for peace, yes.” “And your wife?” “What of her?” 12
>>30283280Exposing ourself seems pretty dumb too.
>>30283375 “She is an abomination as well, no?” Captain Abirami asks as he paces around the half dozen men. “And this one is as well.” “Cailan is a slave. His value comes from it. But my wife I will consent to,” the Dominus answers. Cailan is staring at the ground, and every other human is completely silent. “Then bring her forward,” Captain Abirami finally states as he retreats to his men. “Something terrible is about to happen,” the homunculus whispers as one of the guards runs back. A moment later, Caecilia is brought forward, bound in chains and naked. Captain Abirami smiles and turns to his men. 2/2>>30283280>Fight and Flight>not good ideasIt sounds like I'm succeeding
You know what, this is just about my only readily available source of people willing to read my writing, so I will start dumping Wolf Quest fluff in exchange for feedback on my rewrite of EDENhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/16yQyqDnTPBC-HrWSpcr9L22I0VfYnMJIIYqzZBbzl2A/edit?usp=sharingIf you're interested
>>30282753Expose ourselves so that Abirami sends some men after us and Dominus has the advantage of numbers?
>>30283501Since I have no idea of what to do, this sounds good. Still enough room to GTFO if stuff gets bad.
>>30282753>Ambush one of the firebearerscreating panic will probably help
>>30283501I don't know if dominus will risk his life and seize the day.
>>30283589>>30283501We can combine the two. Kill one of the firebearers and then lead some of the men away.
You guys recall that the forest is crawling with other soldiers, right?
>>30283706ThisIf you guys are voting for guerrilla tactics, I hope you know there's ~30 other soldiers burning the forest down
>>30283769Oh okay. I missed the last thread. Thanks for telling us.Well then I am also out of ideas... I guess we wait until some opportunity opens up?
>>30283769yeah, changing my vote to stick around and see what happen. Ask homunculus what she suggest on doing, I mean if dominus is giving up fighting there's not much we can do against an invasion army
>>30283806Anything is a good idea if it ignites ???Just saying
>Wait and Watch>Guerrilla tactics
>>30283997>Wait and Watch
>>30283896Well, as far as I can remember we wanted to get rid of nadel anyway, so letting them burn her (it?) would be good. But we want to keep our Homunculus. So maybe we can snatch away caecilia? How many are holding her?
>>30284029two men holding her directly, but she's surrounded by 12 soldiers, 6 other guards, Abirami, Dominus, and Cailanvote is for Wait and Watch, while I start writing, anything you want to ask Homu?
>>30284259"got a plan?"
>>30283434I had read the first two or so threads when it was running but I couldn't get into it. I'm no eloquent or insightful enough to tell you what exactly I didn't like about it.I think you tried to write it more like a story than a quest which isn't bad per se, but didn't work for me.
Homu can talk with others. I think our best choice is try to team up with Dominus.We can't take them on alone.
>>30284458I can name a dozen reasons the quest didn't work, this is merely a novelization of the plot I was working on. So I'm looking for feedback on it as if it were a novel
“Whitefang, what do you think you’re doing?” the homunculus asks as you begin to prowl through the shadows around the burnt clearing. Captain Abirami is distracted with abusing Caecilia, throwing her in front of his men and making obscene jokes.“I’m sorry, but I cannot save her like this. You ask the impossible of me,” you respond. Schatten is close behind you, ready to attack. “Unless you have a plan I can use.”“Of course the discarded spirit of knowledge and power is the only one capable of coming up with a plan. Why would I ever think a thick headed guy like you could come up with something,” the homunculus responds. You snarl a bit, but bite your tongue. “Caecilia’s magic keeps her young and beautiful, never a shadow of a blemish might cross her visage. Cute way of saying she can’t be harmed either. Best way to kill her without breaking her legend would be to burn her with Nadel. Two legends, one torch,” she continues as you see one of the torchbearers reappear on the far side of the meadow.You hadn’t noticed him leave, but he’s clearly returning with a bundle of twisted vines, dry hemp or something, and he’s walking towards the tree. “All of you are monsters, inhuman! What could possess you to do this?” Caecilia screams as they hold her down to Nadel’s trunk. “Why are you doing this to me?”“Because my dear,” the dominus says as he walks forward, a small bundle of cloth in his arms. He lets the cloth open up from the flesh wrapped inside. “You are a whore,” he states as he hits her with it. All of the men begin to laugh as he spits on her and walks away. Cailan has his head bowed so low you can’t see his face.1/2
>>30284485Why would Dominus ally with us? he doesn't care for Nadel or his cheating wife.
>>30284684“Well there goes that possibility. That given, I think these soldiers must have some kind of oracle or something, they know the weaknesses too well. Fire is of course Nadel’s bane. If they start burning its heart tree, nothing will be able to stop it, you have to attack them now, or flee.”“Captain! Captain Abirami!” a strange smelling soldier shouts as he runs into the clearing. He stops, leaning on his legs to catch his breath. “Whitefang is here.” Captain Abirami smiles.>Attack a torch bearer>Reveal yourself to Abirami>Have the homunculus shout something from the shadows>Flee>Other2/2
>>30284688Yeah I don't know what the fuck anon was thinking.If anyone has allegiance that can be gained, it's Caecilia and Callan.
>>30284712WE TOLD YOU THAT WE CAN'T ATTACK THEM AND YOU SUGGEST TO ATTACK THEM!?! FINE!!i swear this humunculus is rustling my jimmies so hard.>Attack a torch bearer>Reveal yourself to Abirami>Have the homunculus shout something from the shadowsall of this.
>>30284712Dammit, I found this thread too late.Attack a torch bearer. Waiting and watching was so a mistake both last two turns we chose it.Maybe the distraction can let Caecilia escape and magick it up?
>>30284712>Have the homunculus shout something from the shadows"fear me">Attack a torch bearer
>>30284990and once she's free and there's hope, maybe that in turn can spur her pet champion to betray his master.Homunculus can get Caecilia on our side, surely.Actually what if we had Schatten attack a torchbearer instead.
>>30284712>Attack a torch bearerHomu is valuable enough to do this. Pray that we can ignite that spark into something helpful.
>>30284688>>30284938Yeah, I was stupid.If Caecilia gets freed, that means she can fight with us. She is invulnerable which works greatly in our advantage
wait, Caecilia is still in chains in addition to the vines.can homu help with those i wonder... man what did she even do for Caecilia exactly, she was so vague.
>>30284938I don't want that alliance, i bet Caecilia is using Wolfu's blood for some hard anal sex with Cailan.
>>30284684Attack attack attackSchatten especially needs to attack. He can heal rapidly, we can't.Homu needs to tell us how to get Caecilia's help in killing goddamn everyone. Enemy of my enemy and all that.
>>30285125Homu is an advisor
what was the bundle you think?a dead baby?Caecilia's bastard?

>>30285329I know i know, we should reap the consequences for not attacking a torchbearer two turns ago, when our enemies were still holding back on burning Nadel until negotiations were done.
>>30285369I'm just upset the quest will probably end without me getting to crit fail you. You were so close
>>30285399aw fuck. yeah odds aren't in our favor are they.lucky thread 13.
Man, you people never cease to amaze mewhy are you attacking? I mean seriously. Because Homu said it? So what? Even she doesn't know what exactly will happen if the whore dies. The legend spark is not worth this
>>30285523Haha, yeah... it would've been a good idea to attack two turns ago, maybe?But the odds got worse and worse since then.
>>30285523Also,I think Homu just needs a Name to be solidified as an detached entity from Caecillia.So name her already
>>30285592Waiting always fucks us over.The fact that /tg/ as a whole hasn't realized this is jarring.>>30285621And what about Homu isn't a name?
>>30285655It's a combination of waiting/not taking risks when they're low and taking dumb risks when they're higher.Wolf Quest 0 was plagued by incredible disregard for risk/reward ratios.
>>30285634>>30285671doesn't really roll of the tongue
>there was a point where we needed to stop and we have clearly passed it>BUT LET'S KEEPING GOING AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS
“I told you that would be suicide for me,” you growl at her.“Just trust me. You just have to last long enough to spark that legend, and I can nudge things along,” she responds as Schatten snarls.“Come out come out Whitefang. What a day this will be. Four of you monsters all at once. Hannibal will be pleased with me,” Captain Abirami shouts into the woods, turning around slowly. “I know you’re out there, you always were a curious one. It’s how you killed my cousin Hasdrubal, isn’t it? Biding your time in the shadows, lurking, waiting for a sign of weakness.”The torch bearers are looking into the shadows as well, some draw their swords, others don’t. They leave themselves vulnerable. Captain Abirami continues again as you pick your target. “Now why don’t you wait right there while I get my spear?” he says as you dash forward and leap upon your prey. A small man, he can’t even get his arms up in time after noticing you attacking him. You knock him to the ground and gore out his throat with practiced ease, his fire guttering out in the slush.Captain Abirami scowls as you take stock of your surroundings. The eleven other torch bearers all have their attentions on you, Schatten is nowhere to be seen, the dominus and his men haven’t moved, Cailan is now glaring between his master and Captain Abirami rather than his feet, and Caecilia is laughing. “Did you think you could kill me so easily? That I am not protected?”“That opportunistic bitch,” the homunculus swears in your ear. “She’s going to twist this around, isn’t she? Just ignore her if you can. This isn’t her show.”The humans are frightened, but they don’t seem to be about to break. They are different.>Say something through the homunculus>Attack another torch bearer>Flee back to the shadows>Attack …>Signal Schatten>Other

>>30285833this sounds really good.
I suppose we should consider that our Flight modifier is 2 less than our Fight modifier.Does attacking from the shadows give them much less chance to take the initiative in attacking us?
You sure you want to tell Schatten to enter the fray right before bailing out?
>>30285977...I guess he would take that poorly, wouldn't he.
who should we attack next though?>attacking Nadel's torchbearing executioners, like 11 of those guys>attacking Caecilia's 2 guards>attacking Callan's... 6 guards?
>>30285731>my cousin Hasdrubal>cousin Hasdrubal>Hasdrubal
>>30285977In any other quest I'd say yes but I know I have to confirm these things with you.If he attacks will you let him immediately disengage and return to the shadows?We intend immediately re enter the fray once he's drawn their attention.
>>30285977it does sounds like a good tactic...our next move will logically be making him retreat and us attack
>>30286048it might be better to divide their attention without fleeing in between. each flight is a chance for them to attack our retreating tail without a chance of us hurting them in turn.
>>30286048This is the right idea. we'll just play hit and run until they break morale
>>30286029Attack ceacilias 2 guards. If she dies, Alice might die. And she will definitely do something aginst the strange smelling men.
>>30286048There's going to be some timing issues since he'll drain his kills, if he makes any
>>30286094Caecilia is still in chains, though. And she's never used offensive magic that we've seen. Just feeding on the blood of others to be immortal.And she can't die unless we let the torchbearers burninate Nadel. So to save Alicia we gotta stop the torchbearers. ...all 11 of them.
>>30286029>>30286094 Caecilia's fine if she doesn't get torched and fuck Callan.If were lucky Abirami will think he's been betrayed and force Callan on our side of this fight.>>30286102>he'll drain his killsIn the middle of a fight? Well that just makes this plan impossible.Give us a sec re look at this.

Rolled 11 + 4>>30286152so we're going back into the shadows?
Rolled 18 + 4>>30286200We did just go on about alliances and what not.It's mostly a hope that The capt is untrusting and goes for a "Kill'em all" approach.
So, if I understand the mechanics rightambush tactics where they don't see you coming:>1 roll by Whitefang for Fight, attacking>1 roll by prey for Fight, defendingfight tactics where you're out in the open:>2 rolls by Whitefang for Fight, one attacking one defending>2 rolls by prey for Fight, dittobut ambush tactics require adding another turn:>1 roll by Whitefang for Flight, running away>1 roll by enemies for Fight, attackingSo either way the enemy gets one chance to attack us for every attack we make... except we use our Flight +4 modifier instead of our Fight +6 for defending against their attack.I'm not sure guerilla tactics is our style. We'd need a much higher Flight stat.
>>30286266You're ignoring psychological effects and legend construction
>>30286266Would you stop complaining about the difference in our fight and flight stat. Wasn't the last thread enough?
>>30286307I don't remember that. I remember some talking about Schatten's stats?
"Homunculus, translate for me. You thought you alone could make alliances? The legends of this land will see you dead,” you growl as you stand your ground against the torchbearers. The homunculus readily relays your message to the humans around you.Captain Abirami turns around to look at you. He tilts his head to the side. “That voice is familiar.” You step back.“That’s Caecilia’s voice. So that’s where the bloody homunculus went,” the dominus says as he steps towards you, but his guards grab him and cease his advance.“Where do you think she got her power from?” the homunculus adds before Caecilia can twist it.“So Whitefang, the Terrible has gone and made some friends?” Captain Abirami asks. His men have been closing in on you, but aren’t quite close enough to attack.“Shadows actually,” the homunculus answers just before you howl.Schatten bursts from the darkness nearby, tackling one of the torch bearers to the ground and mauling at him. In the confusion, you turn and dash through the snow away from the clearing.“After him!” Captain Abirami shouts. “And bring my horse!” The four nearest soldiers all give chase while the others spread out, some moving to attack Schatten.“You’re all going to die,” Caecilia adds as she begins to laugh.>Say something through the homunculus>Attack the men following you>Circle around to help Schatten>Go after Captain Abirami>Other

Rolled 12, 5 + 2 = 19>>30286845and his defense
You run through the woods, dashing between the trunks and weaving between the hills as the humans follow after you. “What is Caecilia doing?”“She’s trying to use Nadel. Twist the truth enough with lies and you can change it. How else is she supposed to escape from being burned alive? We’re doing the same thing, aren’t we?” she responds as you duck into a ravine.“But is it working?” you ask as you slow your run and slide through the shadows. The four men behind you are fanning out, calling between one another as they search for you.“Soon enough, I know what I’m doing. Who do you think taught that bitch? Well, technically it was the woods witch, but she killed her quick enough. Would have been pretty hard to do all of this if we were bound by her grimoire, wouldn’t it?” the homunculus explains as you sneak under the trunk of a fallen tree, with the humans nearly above you but oblivious.“I’m glad this burden on my body is paying off then. Will my legend ignite soon?” you ask as you begin to run back to the clearing.“Hopefully, but I can’t tell what will come of it yet,” she responds. When you see the clearing again, Schatten is still atop the same human, and seems to have killed him. That leaves ten of the torch bearers. The two on either side of him are roaring as they charge with their swords, but he dodges away from both of them. They swear and curse him, and don’t see you coming.You rip the life from a third with ease.>Say something through the homunculus>Continue the attack on the torch bearers>Tell Schatten to hide>Attack …>Flee>Other

mechanics query. you can only have one spark at a time right? it can be morphed, but you can't have two. you have to ignite the one you have before gaining a separate one?
>>30287369Needed to speed up combat so I tossed you an upgrade discretelyI'm writing by the way
>>30287401Sparks? yesLegends? No, you can have as many as you can accumulateYou're on a special spark right now, from the thing you broke in Nadel's eye
>>30287402discreetly?we'll see it as a perk later then, like with the discreet max health increases
“Idiot humans, you would destroy the spirit of the forests and doom yourselves to starvation,” you say through the homunculus as you flick your head to Schatten, cueing him to slip away.“What a lovely little daemon you sold yourself to dear. You should have brought him to dinner,” the dominus says, chuckling to himself. He and his men have backed up to the edge of the clearing.Five of the torch bearers are still in the clearing, but all but two have already discarded their fire to take up arms. three have swords, the others have bows. When you bring their numbers down to four by gutting the one attacking Schatten, all four of them attack you. But they are weak creatures, seemingly reliant on another’s strength, and you evade them. Why they haven’t broken and abandoned the fight is beyond you.“Everyone, come back to the clearing, he’s just going to toy with you. We have the bitch he needs right here,” Captain Abirami shouts as he rides back into the clearing on horseback, spear in hand. The horse he rides is a ghastly brute, black skinned and muscle bound. “Stop trying to fight him by yourselves. I’ve already sent word out, the others will be here soon. He can’t escape. We’ll gut him, his shadow, burn the witch, and ash the tree.”“Would you look at that,” the homunculus comments. Everyone else’s attention had been on Captain Abirami, but she noticed the dominus give Cailan a good shove forward.>Say something through the homunculus>Continue the fight>Call Schatten back>Flee>Attack …>Other
>>30287604>“Would you look at that,” the homunculus comments. Everyone else’s attention had been on Captain Abirami, but she noticed the dominus give Cailan a good shove forward.Someone with good observation skill explain this before we do something stupid.
>>30287604Ok let's rhink real hard here folks, what's our best approach to acquire Cailan's favor?
>>30287604I vote we let Homu be in charge of powering up our sparkWe kind of need an ignition soon
>>30287665The dominus is trying to test his champion's loyalty?Trying to get HIM to kill us.But we can turn him against them.
It occurs to me that we haven't heard Nadel talk since we got the ability to understand things in more than two-word sentences.How does he sound normally... and why won't he talk now?
>>30287682How? I think killing the dominus is the only option. The hackles that hold cailan prisoner are invisible and this guy holds the key.
>>30287761that has been bothering me too...
Okay, okay... what can we say that has a double meaning.Something that will drive Cailan to stab the Captain in the back, or stab his horse, or whatever, without revealing to everybody that's about to happen.
>>30287844Attacking him is out of the question. He has that big ass horse with the frightening description.
>>30287763I guess you can hope that Schatten can get the dominus from behind, while his guards are busy guarding him from us.I'm not sure that's the solution though.
>>30287604>>Say something through the homunculus"Cailan, will you let this worm throw away your life? Shall I loosen your chains?">Continue the fight>Call Schatten backHave Schatten kill Dominus from behind and join him and Cailan
>>30287923who do we attack though.Caecilia's guards?
>>30287939I there anyone else there to attack?
>>30287958TorchbearersCaptain AbiramiDominusDominus's GuardsCailanNadelCaeciliaAbirami's backup
>>30287958>Five of the torch bearers are still in the clearing, but all but two have already discarded their fire to take up arms. three have swords, the others have bows.So two of them still holding fire.Wouldn't that mean only two of them were left to attack us, not four?
>>30288001The swords are one handedMy math is fine, clearly
>>30287988I am scared.This fight seems really important but also hopeless.I say we free Caecilia and leave, possibly pausing for a moment to dick around with Cailan's head.
so we could kill the last two torchbearers, and then they wouldn't have fire left. and their plan is slowed significantly.they'd need to take time to use flint and tinder or whatever to relight torches, if they aren't ruined by wetness from snow.or we could kill the two guards and help caecilia break free and flee, being invulnerable.
>>30288051Tourch bearers are probably the best idea. Schatten wont need us to take down Dom and the Captains whole plan relies on him having a source of fire.
There was a lot of worry about Cailan and just about no decision madeSeems a few of you want to take down another torchbearer, correct?
>>30288113Call out to Cailan and have Schatten take out Dom as per.>>30287923While we attack a tourchbearer.
Okay come up with possible things that could incite Cailan to say screw it and recklessly attack the Captain to save his lover:>You can try. Better to die a Legend than live as a weakling.
>>30288140I really advise against that. Six trained fighters against one wolf specialized in running away?
>>30288140yeah but that way Cailan loses the element of surprise, everyone will KNOW we're taunting him and he might attack right now.and we don't need him to attack the dominus, who's too conservative and unlegendary to be a threat, we need him to take on the captain.
Rolled 17 + 2Locking in your attack, roll Fight
>>30288098he can get more fire though. from other soldiers, lighting up the woods in other places, remember? it's the witch he really needs.he can't kill the witch without Nadel, so he may not be willing to burn nadel and thus be unable to burn the witch in the future.
>>30288209no, no, no, no, no, no
Rolled 20 + 6>>30288261aw fuck no attack the caecilia guardswell. schatten is signaled too, i assume.
>>30288209I say help you complain I say don't help you complain. Come up with a less flawed plan then.>>30288212Once we end the Dom Cailan will have no reason not to join us.You idea requires that 1.) we say something and HOPE Cailan decides to help us and 2.) that no one thinks that he will.The other way we leave reason for him not to help.
>>30288352>The other way we leave reason for him not to help....that...sounds worse?
>>30288352The plan is and has been ignite your legendGetting Schatten killed will harm that, a lot.
>>30288352>2.) that no one thinks that he will....well duh, why the hell would they.No one even noticed he MOVED except for us, and we didn't address him by name.I think it's less certain that he'd have no reason to remain obedient with a dead master--he's still a slave, his ownership would pass on to next of kin....which might be Caecilia, legally, still. So your plan has merit. But neither is really sure.
I hope you guys realize that Homu simply isn't a bastion of stable advice and is going to be a bit harried at timesShe's making it up as she goes
>>30288298roll me the other two rolls
Rolled 10 + 6>>30288498fiiiine.
Rolled 13 + 6>>30288498Fine, fine
We stand no chance even with Cailan's support, there are simply too many enemies.Accept, we can't always win.
Rolled 2 + 6>>30288528The only chance we have is to thwart their plan by fleeing with what they need before they can destroy us: the immortal legend Caecilia.
>>30288528>>30288568What's with this impromptu futility complaint.You know the fighting that's in front of us didn't really get much bigger.Besides We're also here to save Nadel. And we haven't even completed our spark.
>>30288568She's too dangerous and power drunk.

>>30288698She is one of the few things in this clearing that is not actively trying to kill us and could possibly become an ally in the future.
>>30288730A cloud passes over the sun...
>>30288730Aw shit, we fucking scary now.But so are spears.
>>30288698But now she's disowned. She has no people and slaves to boss around.Tolerating her being free in the world may allow Nadel to live, if they need him to kill her.
>>30288766They don'tThey need fireThey happen to be burning Nadel anyways
The Dice Gods smiled upon us this day, and for that we are grateful. Blessed be the Dice Gods. May we remain under their protection.
>>30288730Awww sheet, the power of the natural 20?Shit, so now our Fight modifier is +9 then, +11 on defense. And Flight is +7.Is that ON TOP of the bonus of Blazing Intellect, giving us a total of 9 int?
>>30288730Weak Shoulder (Nightmare) | Spears will do double damage to youFucking Hasdrubal! Even in the grave you're a shit.>>30288822Thank you. I don't know why they kept insisting that.
>>30288845I think our weakness to spears started much earlier than that, from the father of the son we tried to eat.But yeah Hasdrubal man. Fucking Hasdrubal.One of the scariest bosses in anything and all he is is a fucking tracker.
>>30288842yesWriting by the way, that time chunk was spent fiddling with this for a bit, and worrying over balance of Shadow LeaderGod damn I wish I could attract a drawfriend
>>30288845>Cute way of saying she can’t be harmed either. Best way to kill her without breaking her legend would be to burn her with Nadel.Misinterpreted, it seems.Since burning would seem to be a form of harm. Sounded like the death of another legend somehow... bypassed it, swept her up in the other legend's demise. Silly, I guess.
>>30288730Seems fitting. Our first target in anything has always been "the one with the torch" so that we could reclaim our natural night advantage.
>>30288746WELPnow we have two more pack members summoned. and we can taunt with a male voice now.
>>30288872actually, this looks better in my opinion
>protecting Nadel>allying ourselves with Nadel>Nadel is more active and powerful at night>we have more power in darknesswe GUARDIAN OF THE CURSED WOODS NOW
>>30288969Nice>>30289000Time to play some shadow games.
Rolled 15, 3 + 5 = 23RiiiightNeed to make this roll
>>30288839Dear Dice Gods,You rock,AMEN!!!
Rolled 5 + 3>>30289027
i swear Caecilia better be a nice little spooky woods witch when this is over
>>30289092I, on the other hand, think she'd better be dead. She did kill wolfu, guys. I only care about her life as long as she is useful, and I'd prefer that to be as little time as possible.I can't be the only one holding this grudge
>>30289027I wonder what roll this is. is it Schatten's Flight for some reason? Or the other two wolves' action on being summoned.
>>30289156Maybe you resent her, but she's too cool of a potential antagonist/strange bedfellow to let someone else kill her all willy nilly.
>>30289156So you want us to kill a potential ally because you're upset about something that wont be fixed no matter what we do?
>>30289254Yes, that's how grudges work. I am mad that she killed someone important to us. In fact, I can't see how we could possibly not hate her in-character. Best case scenario is we let her go and never want to see her afain
You growl as you feel something swell in your soul. You can hear a few dozen other soldiers rushing through the woods to you. The humans seem to have an inexhaustible supply of allies. But you have allies as well.The two swordsmen near you are wary now, no longer rushing. Rather than let them grow in numbers to smite you down, you pounce as a cloud passes over the sun. The momentary distraction lets you easily knock him to the ground and rip out his exposed throat. “Looks like your backup has finally arrived, I’ll have to thank Nadel when this is over,” the homunculus whispers to you. You instinctively howl and look back to the humans. Fear is renewed in them, and you can hear the snarling of the sisters behind you. Schatten emerges from the forest on the far side.“Shadows! Demons! Monster!” the panicked humans shout as you prowl towards them. “He is a Leader of Shadows!”“Fire only makes shadows stronger you know,” the homunculus adds as you bare your fangs at the torch bearer. The frightened welp drops it into the snow and backs away. You can feel your body swell with power as the legend ignites, and panicked shouts about you spread through the woods from mouth to mouth.“You fools! Do not break hope. It is your weakness that has allowed this. These beasts grow stronger with your fear. Hold fast damn you!” Captain Abirami shouts as you notice Cailan walk towards him. “We’ll kill all of these filthy creatures if I have to do it myself! Now stand by me and prepare yourselves!”“You are a fool,” Caecilia says as you watch Cailan draw both of his blades and bury them in the neck of the black horse. The creature screams in pain and begins to topple. Cailan rips his blades free as Abirami leaps from the saddle. The man scowls and flicks the blood from his swords and stands opposed to the legend.
>>30289331“Men! Retreat to the villa, this is not our fight,” the dominus shouts as he turns from the fight, leading his guards away, but he stops at the edge of the woods.The woods is alive like you have never noticed before. Your nose can pick out a million different scents. From the nuances of each person’s blood, to the strange smell of oil poured around Nadel’s trunk, the acrid sap leaking from Nadel’s scar, that the dominus is completely at ease, and you can smell the glowing insects gathering around Nadel.>Other
>>30289361>Attack the Captain
>>30289361kill caecilia's guards.(hopefully the torchbearer welp flees the forest totally)
>>30289459Who do you think Caecilia's guards are? It was two torchbearers that tied her up, and two of Dominus's guards brought her up and are now back with him
>>30289361>roar'cause it's a cool thing to do.
>>30289361>Have Schatten and the Sisters attack Dominus>Attack the Captain
>>30289361tell everyone in our new voice>these woods are mine.
>>30289502Why the fuck do you want to attack the dominus? He literally just told Cailan to murder his way out and now he's leaving, having done jack shit to us
>>30289361oh shit nadel is finally going to talk again.wonder why the dominus is still at ease if he's stopping at the now alive again woods.
>>30289361Kill anyone guarding Caecilia. If noone is guarding her anymore, Free her. Make it very clear to her that we will not accept insubordination or future backstabbing if possible.Also >>30289518After this we can turn our attention to Captain Abirami.
>>30289569Yeah. No attacking the captain yet. Best to let Cailan soften him up first for us anyway. We have all the Legend we're going to get this day.
>>30289569I suppose we should say actually>these woods are oursWe're not letting them burn Nadel after all.
>>30289547Woah, down killer.He wasn't speaking to Cailan (who is fighting the Captain right now) but his remaining guards.And missing this chance to deprive the Villa of their leader isn't something we should pass up.
>>30289624why do we care about the villa's leader?better it be some pathetic normal than whatever Legend will probably take his place if he dies.Nadel can kill him if he wants.
>>30289624Why do you think the Villa is our enemy?
>>30289668Humans are the enemy.
>>30289697What possible reward can we gain from his death and creating a power vacuum.
Let's simplify this>Attack Abirami>Free Caecilia>Attack the other soldiers>Attack Dominus and his guards
>>30289741attack the other soldiers.so caecilia is like a human version of Guardian of the Woods? what did homunculus mean by "can't be harmed".
>>30289741>kill Caecilia, Go For The Throat.
>>30289769Caecilia>Drinks the blood of her victims, of which there are many>Has rough, gorey sex with gladiators in spite of her husband>murdered Wolfu>turned Nadel into a monsterAnd did it all so she could be young, beautiful, immortal.She a bitch.But savvy.
>>30289812I'm not sure she can be killed by teeth. Only by fire, as befits a witch.also if it is possible to kill her we can do that after the people with bows and swords and SPEARS are not a threat. she's harmless. she has no weapons.
>>30289741>Attack the other soldiers
>>30289721Inner struggle. Panic. Perhaps a nice little villa waiting to be attacked at night. A little rest for Nadel, our ally-to-be.Hell we're a wolf why are we even thinking like this "kill the apes" is all the logic we need
>>30289836yeah, the classic legend of the noble lady who bathes in the blood of virgins or whatever.I'm curious how just what the homunculus thinks the exact limitations of her immortality are though.
>>30289870but our perk says that we ignore the final point of health, and she is pretty beaten up.
>>30289926>never a shadow of a blemish might cross her visageSounds like the magic phrase to mePoison would probably work better than fire, but fire is stronger
>>30289915we're smarter than your average wolf. we can prioritize the elimination of threats and the gaining of advantages via Legend Spark.emotion only blinds us if we choose to let it.
>>30289951With an arguement like that, I'd let you kill her if she were on her final pointShe's unharmed though>>30289970You are as smart as your average burger flipper right now
>>30289951none of them could wound her. only chain her. she's at full health.

This is heading in a pretty sweet direction. You've renewed my interest Rom
The humans are gathering around you. The four that followed you through the woods are the first to return. You and your pack descend on them in the darkness. You are the first to reach them, and you discover you’re larger now. Your shoulders stand higher than their waists now, and your maw is larger.He raises his sword in one hand and the torch in another. Before he can strike down, you grab his arm in your maw and crush it, shearing the limb off. He screams, trying to hold the bleeding in from the stump, and you grab him by the shoulder, ripping him back and forth till you feel his spine snap. Schatten throws himself against another of your assailants, knocking him to the ground and mauling him as the sisters assault the remaining two.But the sisters aren’t as experienced as you or Schatten, and they don’t make their kills. The smaller one even takes a grazing hit from one of their swords. You snarl and pounce on them, your nightmarish strength quickly ending their lives.Behind you, more soldiers are gathering, and Cailan is battling Captain Abirami. The strange smelling man still uses his spears, while Cailan uses the spear. Even at a glance you can easily tell that Cailan’s raw experience in battling is putting him at a large advantage over the soldier, but you are his only support.“Husband! Please no!” Caecilia shouts as you see a ball of fire flip through the air. The dominus had tossed a torch to the base of Nadel’s tree. The oil that had been poured around the base of the heart tree instantly ignites, spreading all around Caecilia and creeping up the trunk to burn at her. “Damn you to the darkest pits of the udnerwold. I will haunt you, I swear it!” she screams as Nadel begins to twist and scream.“No you won’t,” he responds before spitting on the ground again and turning away.A shadow passes overhead, and you can hear Nadel’s voice again. “It has returned, its fire has returned, help me. HELP ME.”

>>30291013There were 50 soldiers, now there are 38, and they are gathering. Each turn, they attack you. Only so many swordsman can come after you, but plenty of archers can easily attack you together. They each get a chance too. They add up to a much bigger dice pool than Abirami if you don't keep killing them as they come until, or you break their morale, but these guys are abnormally resistant.Also, the dominus isn't named, I just needed some way to refer to him
>>30290978With that one sister you bothered to describe I assume? Did schatten have pups too?
>>30291108It was just an example of a possible good end. Why the hostility?It's damn hard to characterize when they can't speak and they're too shit in a fight.
>>30291162Oh, three threads FROM now. I derped reading comprehension.
>>30291093>They each get a chance tooThe fact that that's even possible in a wooded area sounds a little ridiculous. And Dom is Dom like Homu is Homu.Simplicity is fine.

>>30291247Well now that you can speak, I'd certainly like it if you called me Homu, or Alicea or something. But you're in a large clearing, large enough for them to be more of a threat than Abirami if they accumulate, but true, not all of them can attack at once>>30291277I'll try to get to a slice of life thread after this resolves>>30291304large enough for a person to believe they could come from it. Dark forest, dark cave, something.
>>30290701>A shadow passes overhead, and you can hear Nadel’s voice again. “It has returned, its fire has returned, help me. HELP ME.”>A shadow passes overhead,How did nobody say anything about this
>>30291388what is there to say.there's the shadow from the cloud in front of the sun, and the shadow from the swarm of bugs over Nadel, and the possible shadow of the smoke that is rising from the fires...it's not a secret.
>>30291388You did, so it's alright now.
ok shit. what is there to extinguish an oil fire.there's... a lot of snow on the ground. that's basically water.there's the horse carcass. someone big and strong can try and use that to smother the flames.some human furs would be easier to smother with.i wonder if the dominus would've burned Nadel if we'd freed his wife already.
>>30291671Pretty sure Nadel is just fucked.However we might be able to free Caecilia before she burns.Maybe. Hopefully.
It's archived by the wayLet's get these past two threads out of the white, shall we?They're better than that

>>30291774Hopefully she'll burn, you mean. Hopefully she's somehow flame retardant and will buy us more time to save a legend that didn't murder our loved ones.
>>30291774i guess now's the time to engage the Captain so that Cailan can save his lady love from the flame.He's got opposable thumbs.
>>30291093Just how special was ??? (Legend Spark)
>>30291956They're not in love. It was kind of a "Have sex with me, or I have the guards beat you senseless and throw you in the arena with ravening dogs. And if you survive, I'll do it again. And again.">>30292005It was special enough to push you over the nightmare/fae line rather than just a legendIt is also part of a plot I'm unlikely to continue
>>30292077>fae line So what was the path of events that would of let us become a fae in this situation.Or did you just mean nightmare/fae as just generally acquiring one of them.
>>30292077for in-universe reasons our out-of-universe reasons
>>30292137Nightmare was always more likely since from the beginning you've been all about the "kill the humans and gain strength by eating their hearts.", but if you had managed to side with the dominus, things would have gone a bit cheerier. The dominus was the man on the rooftop and we would have had a lovely dialogue if instead of jumping into Nadel's forest to escape, you doubled back through the barracks and tried to go out the front door.I'm not sure I'd call him friendly, but he is reasonable when it isn't dealing with his cheating wife>>30292169Kind of hard to find enough material to string together ~forty more threads of tracking down the shards of not!Soul Edge
>>30292255such an inversion from wolf quest 0, right?i wouldn't have minded seeing how the path of...the opposite of blood went, if we actually did it gradually by choices versus the "shit let's be domesticated" non-plan back when we were starving.
>>30292346Would have been another experienceYou might have shmoozed me all the way to Horo even.That said, I couldn't tell you because I make most of this shit up as I go. Pulled Leader of Shadows straight out of my ass without any thought into it before you rolled the 20.I'm still dying for feedback on the EDEN writeup I posted up thread, if you want a peak at what I actually do take note of, gunna have to pay me off
>>30292523ok gdocs opposes ctrl-c for some reason makes it impossible to copy paste text.>Dom groaned and rolled over. He was in a ball with the blanket synched around him like a cotton carapace to hide him from the light.synched?cinched?carapace or coccoonoh fuck i'm falling asleep again dammit it happened again
