Last Thread : http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30282753/Twitter : https://twitter.com/81DEsW1xz4NChar Sheet : Next PostYou are Whitefang, Leader of Shadows, a nightmare of the woods. Your pack is small, but strong. Schatten has been by your side, and the sisters Umbra and Ombra have emerged from the woods at Nadel’s bidding. But now Nadel and Caecilia are ablaze, the acrid stench of burning sap and flesh is seeping into the woods as their screams echo between the trees.The dominus of the villa set the two ablaze, and is retreating with his guards. Cailan has been left behind to fight Captain Abirami, and is holding his ground well. But the soldiers that had set the forest ablaze are gathering here, at their captains request. They fear you, it seeps from their pores and holds their eyes. Something is keeping them from running, and the only one capable of doing that is Captain Abirami.But Caecilia is perishing, and with her, the homunculus may disappear, something must be done about that if you wish to protect her. And then there’s the matter of the shadow that passed overhead, and Nadel’s screams for help.>Attack Captain Abirami with Cailan>Attack the gathering soldiers>Say something>Flee>Other

>>30329500this is risky as hell, but we could try to agree with Calian to keep the captain busy while he saves caecilia. >>30329799you don't even know what you're talking about
>>30329500>got to nightmare statuswow a lot of shit happened from thread 4
>>30329861Homu explained to us that Cailan doesn't really give a shit about Caecilia, it was forced on him.>>30329883That'll happen when you start ganking legends and snorting homunculus go juiceWe're not even a very powerful Nightmare
I'd like to chop Caecilia's legs and use her blood to put out the flames.But i think we should kill Abirami first.>Attack Captain Abirami with Cailan
>>30329907>Homu explained to us that Cailan doesn't really give a shit about Caecilia, it was forced on him. i know, but what can we do without an opposable thumb?
>>30329952You can get creativeAlso, you need to tell me what your pack is going to do while you do this
>>30330147Attack Abirai of course.
>>30330388that's suicide schatten could fight (or at least keep busy) the soldiers while the sisters and us could try to put the flames off from nadel's "heart" by throwing dirt/sand/mud at it while we do the same to caecilia... i guess pulling her off from other flames sources and making her roll on the ground could help too
I feel that all of you are very undecided on what you actually want to do, please clarify so I don't take you down the wrong path
Do you fuckers even realize that Homu doesn't /need/ Caecilia? We just ignited a legend, she can ride the wave if we get clever. Just have to give her a new legend tied to usCaecilia will FUCK us over
>>30330622The sisters did just get names
>>30330622 if there's one who can bring wolfu back, that's probably her...
>>30330587We don't actually know how useful is Caecilia in a fight, and even if we put off the flames Abirami will simply order to re-ignite the heart again.Killing him will route the enemies.
>>30330714She's a "witch" not a necromancer...
Rolled 1, 18, 18 + 5 = 42Since I haven't updated in like, an hour and a half, I'm locking in Attack Captain AbiramiPlease roll Fight (+10)

“Whitefang, I don’t think we can save Caecilia. I never imagined he would kill her like that. My strength is vanishing as I speak. Please, find a way to save me,” the homunculus pleads before her voice fades away. With it, the binding restrictions you felt with her hiding in your shadow fade, as do the fires in your eyes. But Captain Abirami is the real threat at the moment, the lynchpin of his soldier’s morales.Cailan has him retreating, and parries what would have been a mortal wound. As the gladiator stabs through the soldier’ breastplate, you bound across the clearing up to and slam your shoulder into him. Captain Abirami flips over, slamming into the ground and almost losing his hold on his spear as you loom over him and snatch up his leg in your maw, but the arrows of his men come flying through the air and force you back, one even finds your side.Health : 11/20You snarl at the weak humans. Some of them are shouting in fear, others are shouting for action to save their beloved captain. But they are beginning to break, some have already fled and the swordsman dare not approach. Only the archers who can attack you from afar have the guts to oppose you. Then Captain Abirami throws his hand up to his men and shouts in strange words. He grins as the panicked weaklings find new strength and steady their footing.“Bring all of the fodder you wish. None can stand up to me,” Cailan declares as he points his blade at the soldier’s neck. Your pack walks up behind him, growling.>Say something>Attack Captain Abirami again>Flee>Attack the gathered soldiers (8)>Other
ARE YOU PEOPLE RETARDED?DO NOT ATTACK ABIRAMIHe has a fucking spear. Even at their base they do a lot of damage to us, and now we have a weakness which makes them do 2x damage.A single attack and we are fucking dead.>>30331352Kill soldiers brutally till their morale breaks.If we want to save Nadel then we should throw their bodies at him and hope their moisture is enough to subdue the fires
>>30331352>Othergo eat caecilia's heart?she's a witch, maybe that'll squeeze enough magic juice to save homu
>>30331352>>Attack the gathered soldiers (8)
>>30331446Caecilia is literally on fire>>30331435Hasdrubal's spear did 4, double that would be 8, which isn't lethal in oneIf my memory/notes are correct
>>30331446>If Caecilla dies then Homu dies>Lets kill her to save herDo you even read what you are suggesting?We need a way to spin Homu's legend.Btw, we haven't NAMED her yet.That is what we need to do, I think, name her and then let the surrounding woods and soldiers know about her
>>30331510so, we should hide in the shadows (our only way to speak) and say something like "homu/alice/???, you are one on your own, stay with me" ?
>>30331510Something along the lines of "The Lady of Shadow, Homu" fights with me, perhaps?
We could just let Homu die. She is kind of a backstabbing demon who isn't reliable.
>>30331510simply, let her reveal herself to the soldiers."come forth my shadow" or something like that.>>30331435The soldiers will NEVER break.
Guys, I'm not going to force decisions on you, but in an hour I'll have to take a 3 hour break for work
WHatever we do, we need to put out the fire. So throwing dead bodies at Nadel and having our pack do the same may be out best option. Cailan is doing pretty well against Abirami, and now the guy is lying on the ground.
>>30331667 she's our midna, fuck you >>30331671The soldiers will NEVER break.i think calian will finish breaking them soon enough
>>30331839Voting to name her Midna
>>30331839Abirai has a legend that gives them a huge boost in their morale.
>>30331929legends don't really work once you're beheaded, right? >>30331718sounds like most people agree on trying to "bind" homu to us by calling and naming her (homu? alice? midna?)
>>30331839Jesus, why didn't I see this sooner. A wolf with a shadow demon.
Rolled 4, 16, 17 + 5 = 42Seems that you all want to attack the soldiers while Cailan finishes off Abirami. Even if you can't route them, you can thin them.There will be shadows you can call over yourself so you can speak, while we're dice rolling decide on what you're going to say/do to bind the homunculusThis is for Abirami
Rolled 10, 18 + 5 = 33>>30332026and Cailan
Rolled 18, 13, 11, 10, 18 + 5 = 75And now Archers, defend yourselfFirst three are at you, last two are at Schatten
>>30332085shiiiit. They're at +2, not +5And Schatten has +4, while you have +12Should've looked before posting. Apologies
Rolled 8 + 12>>30332085try not to focus on her shape or voice, but directly on the bound between us and call her name loud and clear, both with our voice and heart.
>>30332026Maybe something like:>Midna, Queen of the Shadows, come to aid your King!?
>>30332142Do you have the SLIGHTEST idea how the legend system works?This isn't magic, it's trickery. You make people believe something grand by showing them something strange. Obscure enough, and they fill in the blanks for you. Believing in yourself only gets you so farWe're not shounen hereIt should be something like "Alicea, my dear shadow, feed for me." and extend our shadow over Schatten as he drains a corpse, while people WATCH. Then we strut our stuff like we just fed and continue the fight, LETTING PEOPLE FLEE TO SPREAD OUR LEGEND
>>30332220While this anon was rather rude, he was also quite accurate
Rolled 18>>30332220I'm ok with call her Alicea
>>30329883> from thread 4god damn anon, get ye to the archivery.
>>30332220your plan sounds perfect.and i like that name
>>30332307No love for Midna you guys?

Rolled 3 + 4>>30332417Schatten needs a 16though it's actually good if he gets hurt so he can heal
Rolled 15, 12, 3 + 2 = 32Alright, took you long enough to roll thosenow for your combatThe first is for youSecond for SchattenThird for Umbra and Ombra
I didn't mention it last thread, but I wonder how the Captain even KNOWS what cautious, shadowy tactics we used against his cousin.He didn't exactly live to tell the tale.
Rolled 17 + 10>>30332505rawr
Rolled 13 + 10>>30332505I just found the thread sorry yeah.
Rolled 14 + 10>>30332519I'm thinking Alicea might have tipped him off so he'd spout off like an idiotOr they just followed the corpses, started with the hounds, then the goat man, then Hasdrubal surrounded by the dead goats burnt torches and pit trap
Rolled 10>>30332519Druid? forest spirits?

Rolled 19>>303325052 dice for Umbra and Ombra, right ?
Rolled 3, 7 + 5 = 15Let's speed this up
Rolled 18, 10 + 5 = 33>>30332757Abirami did not have a good defense roll, let's see Cailan's second offense
Eight of the humans have gathered to face you. Captain Abirami is just a bit too dangerous to you with the spear, so you leave the fight to Cailan and charge the prey. They used to stand strong, but fear has entered their hearts, and won’t leave. It makes you salivate just thinking about it. Your pack follows close behind as you charge the swordsmen. The archers in back loose a volley and clip Schatten, but the black wolf doesn’t slow.You take the one in the front, biting straight through his leather armor to break his neck as Schatten tears a second to the ground. The sisters join together to maul the third, leaving only the bowmen standing, and all of them are retreating to gain distance from you.Cailan speaks behind you, above the screaming of the immolated. “I will gladly fight you fairly heathen, but know that you cannot stand against me. It was your folly to try to kill me.” Captain Abirami grumbles something back in a language you don’t understand, and he rises back to his feet. The soldier spins his spear in the air for a moment, finding his strength properly again, but when he attacks, Cailan glides forward and slices through the sinew of his arm. “I don’t even need a legend to defeat you,” Cailan states before he runs the tip of his blade through the back of Capatain Abirami’s neck.He grunts and kicks the corpse down to the ground, spraying blood across himself and soaking the ground. You turn back to the soldiers. Fear has taken root. Many wail in anguish, some will take up arms in desperation, but most are about to flee. You grin.>Alica, Shadow, feed, plan>Say something>Attack>Other

Wish I had time to write this update, but I have to head outKeep the thread alive for three hours and you'll get it thoughIn the mean time, any criticism you want to throw my way?And has anyone taken a look at : https://docs.google.com/document/d/16yQyqDnTPBC-HrWSpcr9L22I0VfYnMJIIYqzZBbzl2A/edit?usp=sharing ?I'll be on my phone
>>30333242I think i mentioned something superficial last thread before i passed out.a possible typo, synched/cinced? it was where i made it to before i went to bed.
>>30333443That'll get taken care of soon. Anything else?
>>30333242Man, you're really desperate if you seek constructive criticism here on 4chan, i mean, surely there are other communities more suited for that.Literature is the least appealing art form, nobody bother reading anymore, so good luck with that.
>>30335337>Literature is the least appealing art formsurely you haven't heard about "artists" who paint conceptual stuff with their body waste...
>>30335337Where do you think you are?
I'm back>>30335337I like the honesty that 4chan provides. Whenever I've gone elsewhere they only blow my dick constantly and that's bad for improving.And I know that nobody reads anything ever

You prowl forward and snarl at the bowmen as your pack finishes their kills. Standing with the fire to your back, the bulk of your shoulders casts your face in shadow. “Now then,” you say, your voice deep and deliberate. “Alicea, my dear shadow,” you say as you walk between Schatten and the humans. “feed for me.” You extend your shadow back, fighting it against the might of the fire, and envelope Schatten as he leans down to drain the corpse.You grin and appreciate the horror contort the faces of the bowmen. One of them even loses his meal before fleeing. When the snapping of sinew ends and Schatten leaves the corpse a withered husk, you retract your shadow and let it seep back into your fur. A thick binding wraps around you with it.You step forward as one foolish human rushes forward with a spear. His fate is little better than Captain Abirami’s. With that last act, you break the morale of every remaining soldier and they all follow each other away. You howl into the night, chasing them away.But the forest is still ablaze. Schatten pauses only to drain a second corpse before walking up to your side. Cailan is walking up to you, and Caecilia’s screaming has ended. You can still hear the wailing of Nadel, but the heart tree is ablaze and his voice echoes between the branches.“Alicea hmm? Can’t say I’m too happy about being bound to your shadow when it was so hard to get out of Caecilia’s, but it was quick thinking. Thank you,” the homunculus responds as the blazes return to your eyes.>Say something to Alicea>Say something to Cailan>Flee to safety>Consume Abirami>Other
>>30337951>>Consume AbiramiWe a big boy now, and we gots to eat.Caecilia is toast now I assume?
>>30337951Cailan...If Nadel dies, it will bode poorly for us all.And wouldn't you like to spite the master who abandoned you?>Other>glance up at what cast that shadow overhead now.I thought it was just smoke or bugs but should actually look.
I wonder if there was ever any way to stop them lighting up Nadel like Christmas, once both sides were in this clearing.We attacked the invader torchbearers, and the villa's guardsmen tossed a torch on to light it up.If we attacked the dominus's men, would Ahirabi's torchbearers have had the chance to do the same?
>>30338039Would it be possible to eat her too?Fuck it, eat everybody.I assume the only reason fire got past her invulnerableness was because people thought it would? crazyness.
>>30338283I think it was a specific loophole in her legend as the immortal beauty?she can still drown, and asphyxiate in smoke and ash, and her insides can boil, so long as her outside appearance remains perfect. right up until the point she dies.
>>30338268Good dialogue was neededNadel isn't dead though>>30338283She's still on fire and wont' stop being on fire for a while>>30338335>>30338283Yes.This is a world of legends, not magic
To review, we have:lots of dead humans and their furs with which to smother the blazea buncha snow on the ground to toss on as a form of waterand ???
>>30338376There is no stopping the fire. This is just a prolonged deathNow we flee
>>30337951pack members: kick snow onto the blaze with your hind legs like your lives depend on it
>>30338436>>30338376You would need a couple thousand gallons of water air dropped on the forest to stop it now, especially considering fire is Nadel's weakness like Spears are yours
>>30338512Crack open a cold one and watch the blaze while chowing down then.
>>30337951>Cailan is walking up to youI... don't think he has any reason to hate us righti mean asides from us being a Nightmare wolf and thus generally threatening and detestable on principleunless he cares about those nameless guys we killed when we invaded the villa like they were his bros or something
>>30338559Naaaah we totally bros I assume.Probably.It would be a really bad idea for him to attack us and Schatten and the sisters in a forest filled with men who hate him that is also on fire.
Surely there's something you want to say
>>30338616Bark Bark Motherfuckers.Or something.Probably something to Cailan to make him not want to stab us. But I do not know what.
>>30338616>You fought well, Cailan. The old dominus is unworthy of your talents.>Alicea. Is there nothing we can do to quench these flames?
>>30338705yeah sounds good
Fuck it, heads up and howl victoriously at the sky.Just, for no reason. Happening to look skyward.
>>30338772But don'tcha know? Dogs can't look upWriting
>>30338790DAMN YOU, BIG AL
>>30338857oh wow, I always assumed it was a joke since I have dogs, but come to think of it, my lab has to roll backwards to see directly above herYou actually can't look upI can work around that though
>>30338931http://www.howitworksdaily.com/environment/can-dogs-look-up/Canines can rear back their heads to howl though don't they.They just aren't as vertically flexible as human necks.
>>30338977don't they hit like pi/3 before stopping? near vertical if they sit?It would be strange to see Whitefang do it
>>30338931Probably can't look STRAIGHT up from a 4 legged standing position, but can sit or stand on two legs to look directly above, or just... move somewhere else and look diagonally probably.
>>30339019I'm just going to have Cailan say it, it's not a big deal
>>30339037heh yeah. that's the natural choice really.we just couldn't suggest cailan's actions ourselves.
“You fought well Cailan. Your dominus is unworthy of you,” you say as you walk over to the corpse of Captain Abirami.“Was. He is my master no more,” Cailan explains as he wipes the blood from his gladiuses and sheathes them. “He cut off my cock and handed me my rudis before tossing me to the dogs. Wolves as it were.”“You fought well Cailan. I’m sorry this happened to you. Caecilia was difficult, and destructive,” Alicea says as Schatten and the sisters help you tear off the bloody metal armor around Abirami.“If her husband had the gall to stop her when it started we wouldn’t be here, and all the people she killed would still live. What will happen to Nadel? It would trap and consume my fellow rudiarius, toying with them,” Cailan asks as you break through Abirami’s rib cage.“The flames have persisted for too long, Nadel as we know her will perish. Perhaps this is for the best. Forests need fires from time to time, and spring is upon us. The men of the villa will see the forest recover stronger than before and know she still brings the land fecundity,” Alicea says as she stretches from your shadow enough to have her own form against the muddy ground.You tear out Abirami’s heart and let your pack pick apart the legend as you it back to face Cailan. Your head is almost level with his bare chest, but you feel slightly smaller than before.Hunger : 1/7The shadow passes over you again, and both you and Cailan look up. You can only catch a glimpse of it between the smoke, but it seems as some great bird, but the wings are wrong and the tail is long, like a rats. “The serpent has awoken,” Cailan whispers.>Say something>Flee>Follow Cailan>Other
>>30339237>Say something"The Serpent?"
>>30339237>Ha, another legend? When it rains, it storms!>Follow... assuming he's going anywhere. lone wolf that he is, now.
>>30339346The exposition dump is next timeShould I just wrap it up here?
Treebark was a fae legend version of a bear, Schatten is pretty Nightmare mode with his Bluttdrinker....would a dragon be some ordinary reptile turned god-legend?
>>30339237"I will not lie and say that I am sorry that Caecilia died. She did kill my mate."
>>30339237I guess the castration was just spite for the cuckolding he couldn't deny consent to as a slave? Since he was apparently not a threat or especially loyal to Caecilia.That is some Hera-worthy marital jealousy.
>>30339578>mate*packmatenever consummated or even made it to that point past friendliness, did they?
>>30339601>That is some Hera-worthy marital jealousy.Is that a compliment?
>>30339237>The shadow passes over you again, and both you and Cailan look up. You can only catch a glimpse of it between the smoke, but it seems as some great bird, but the wings are wrong and the tail is long, like a rats. “The serpent has awoken,” Cailan whispers.Winged Coatl or Fuckdragon?Guess we will find out.
>>30339631well, it was obviously something more that being a packmate, what would you classify that as?
>>30339669the one that got away
>>30339696more like the one who got taken away
The thread's been archived and I am way past the time I allotted for this, so I'm calling it here on that cliffhanger. Hope you enjoyed despite it being pretty slow.Any comments you want to throw my way?
>>30339834Cool.Excellent climactic battle for the escalation that's been brewing.I guess as a freedman Cailan can seek his fortune elsewhere but hope he makes a legend here as wrathful wildman of the woods or some shit near/with us.hey, with enough fear and terror struck into the villagers of him coming to rape you his penis might grow back!
>>30339963I certainly hope it works out that you stay with him or some other human. Need some way of justifying a speech boost for your pack. Tired of writing mutes.
>>30339834Oh I didn't say this before but I stumbled on Wolf Quest Zero in the foolz archives not long ago(for some reason i looked up 'wolfomancer') and then lamented that it had met such an inglorious end. Wondered if and hoped a reboot were possible and then lo and behold, there it was!But in a way it's fitting, having that in the archives there, as a warning and monument to the fragility of a starving animal and the unforgiving nature of this world.
>>30340194>wolfomancerStill not sure how I feel about that guy who tried to reboot wolf quest before me.Glad you're enjoying the current Wolf Quest
>>30340354Did someone? I couldn't find anything else like it in foolz besides yours.>>Abandon everything, study wizardry and become a wolfomancer.>Is a wolfomancer a wolf-magician with acess to a full range of magics or a subset of magician who only deals in wolf based spells like "Summon: Wolf" or "Improve Fur: Superior Gloss"?had to read the thread after that
>>30340465>"Improve Fur: Superior Gloss"?Oh damn, I forgot about that oneI need to find a reason for Umbra to get that>>30340465It was hard to find even a day after it happened though. You probably won't find that spontaneous combustion
>>30340512haha too late >>27787510oh.it was a sequel.and that was back when OPs could still delete their own threads, ha.
