OPENING>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F468us4qCUEPreviously: A Young Rocket drifts through the deep sea, seeing visions of the ocean floor. Fire roaring deep below the water, sending up gussets of steam.An ancient ship, sunken and lost to time.A great coral reef with stout defenders.Yet she meets her journey's end upon a sandy beach, the morning sun waking her and drying her sea battered body.Holding back tears at the realization that she must be so far from home, the young rocket finds herself hungry and without her friend.Putting foot to sand, she seeks to mend both of these issues.After a close call with a sharpedo, and a bird in the claw, The Young Rocket sees a bunch of mischievous critters hanging about large, docile monsters.Returning a poop banana to sender, one of them tires itself out in a fit as the rest of them get worked up into their own rage.Further north on the beach, The Young Rocket finds a fishing spot, and new friends...Stay tuned for Claymore Attack On Parasite Pokemon Hunterformars!Known characters>http://pastebin.com/k2xnqqvBMonster Index>http://pastebin.com/wxwgrCqbCharacter Sheet>http://pastebin.com/7CJx3gq1Twitter:>https://twitter.com/AoPHquestLore>http://pastebin.com/vy0a6Z9r
>>31070514Captain reporting for duty.
and I'm here. Completely unprepared with no snacks.
>>31070586Get snacks. I'm typing up the next post.
So I know the one who's going to use our Macho Brace is Bruise...But what if it's used from time to time to restrain Lilac?>>31070631Oh, Prof. You listed in the pastebin that we had>Icy Wind (5) - 4 skill points>Rest (4) - 3 skill points>Quick Attack (2) - 2 skill pointsBut we haven't trained them yet. Icy Wind should still be 4, Rest at 3, and Quick Attack at 0.
>>31070631>>31070689Also, even after training all that, we should still have 1 skill point remaining, not 0.
>>31070689Oh my.This is now Lilac's canon breast size in the future.>>31070689It's as it is. I said you really only needed a training period between the "skills" like aquatic combat, guerilla, etc.I won't hold that off.
>>31070756>in the future.I knew you were one of us, Prof, you fucking horn dog.>>31070723But yeah, we should still have 1 remaining skill point.It might seem small, but after playing Dragon's Crown, I've learned to appreciate every little thing.
>>31070756>This is now Lilac's canon breast size in the future.Bueno.
So who else wants to fly a pair of Tropius back to the dome when we leave for a badass return + live capture?
>>31070871Eh. If it's possible, fine, but you seem to be simplifying the matter too much.
>>31070756Does Lilac use ghost powers to speed strip by just intangibility-ing through the clothes?Is Sanna going to have to warn us about her alarming new habit of doing it in public that she developed when we disappeared?
>>31070756I actually wonder how Lilac and Bruise are getting along right now... Since I was kind of under the impression that Lilac had a huge crush on Bruise, and I have a feeling she will be a lot more... "Aggressive" with her feelings then normal people.Plus, Bruise can hardly fight her off because his fighting type is useless against her Ghost powers
>>31070903Who knows, maybe the birdbros know how to do it and will teach us. Seems about as easy to do as constructing a boat that can survive the open ocean, anyway.
>>31070756But what about Ceru's breast and hip size?
>>31070689>>31070909>Sees Bruise trying out Macho Brace>Asks to try it>Handles pretty well>Gets bored and phases out of the Macho Brace, naked>Bruise is still watching>"Let's do something MORE fun..."
>>31070936We don't know how fast Tropius flies, how far away they are, whether or not they can float, etc.Also the horrible pokemon in the air and sea.
>>31070936Have you actually ever trained a wild animal yourself?
>>31070964>horrible pokemon in the air and sea.Or Sharpedo, which occupy whichever one they feel like at the moment.
>>31070951I get the feeling that Lilac is maximum overlewd.I feel sorry for Bruise and jealous
>>31070995Sharpedo are one of the worst things in the sea
>>31070909Heh. Fun idea, but leave that to the pastebins. Since that's really the only place where this sort of stuff would be fine.>>31070911Bruise. He's a fucking magnet for this stuff. WHAT IS HIS SECRET?
Man, I thought it was delayed until Wednesday.Glad I was wrong.
>>31071117You misunderstood. Wednesday is when Over(Human) is running.
>>31071099she tryed to walk around nearly nude last time we were with her
>>31071117>This is the level of reading comprehension hereThe tweet said that it was delayed for a couple hours. Not a day.
>>31071099Indeed... I wonder what his secret is
>>31071137I'm talking about>>31070909That incident you mentioned was just Lilac being curious and enthusiastic.
The path from the fishing hole you'd met Kurojo and Mukon at isn't too far from their “city.” All the while they talk between themselves in their own rather avian dialect, sometimes throwing in a sound that sounds quite unlike.The path itself is marked with stones here and there with the actual jungle floor mushing between your toes. You hadn't worn shoes for the mission, they'd have gotten in the way of swimming.The trees still tower over you. Standing tall and wide. Taller even than those in the Veridian Forest.As life buzzes through the canopy and some creatures pay you a notice from the understory you get a bit nervous.For the most part though, the path has pretty good cover from things that lie upon the forest floor.From what you can tell from their body language and overall size: You'd guess that Mukon is a bit older than Kurojo, and he seems to be the one leading the conversation. Kurojo is definitely the junior here, yet he's the one leading with Mukon sticking behind.The path turns and splits off into another that Kurojo leads you down. This happens a few more times as you make some mental notes of the route At one break through the brush you see a waterfall spilling down into a river. You walk over a bridge made of what appear to be scales, bones, and some kind of rope.Kurojo points up at the waterfall as the path takes a turn around a steep hill. “There. Shity.”You look up at the waterfall again and see that there are especially tall trees growing up high- No. One moves, dipping down at the river. Another of those huge monsters. They live with them? That's so dangerous...You keep your comment to yourself as you climb up the steep hill. At a point Mukon and Kurojo begin to take long leaps for the rest of the way before looking down back at you near the top.Kurojo beckons you with a wave as you realize you're looking at what's basically a cliff face ripe with large roots that break through the dirt with smooth rocks here and there.
You don't think you'll be able to jump the rest of the way up with them...> Try anyway...> Use your claws to climb.> Ask for help.> (Other)
>>31071224>[x] Use your claws to climb.
>>31071224> Use your claws to climb.Did you mention before that the cryttens are mountain climbers? I seem to recall some discussion about their skill at climbing up.Also>>31070723This anon was right, we should still have 1 remaining skill point.
>>31071224>Use your clawsand test those cartillage spikesDon't forget to use the omniguns for upward force if we slip and fall.
>>31071224If we use our claws, we're gonna hurt a vine monster or some shit. I just know it...
>>31071224>Use your claws to climb.Try and at least convey that we might need help.
>>31071250The spikes aren't out yet. Still juvenile.
>>31071224>>[X] Use your claws to climb.
>>31071224>Use your claws to climb
>>31071284They're still white and a bit soft, right? A couple of them are peeking out, if memory serves correct.
>>31071335Well, yes. They've started to form and have breached Ceru's skin. They just aren't quite at the point that Ceru can use them yet.Ideally she'll be able to support her body weight from one.
>>31071224>> Use your claws to climb.> (Other)do a cool one-handed claw slide down the cliff face.
>>31071374Does the fact that they're starting to poke through mean that Crytten is evolving? I mean, it's not like the omniguns are pushing them through since those actually got smaller.
>>31071374Ah, so the cartilage, when it evolves, is what will help us climb better, Prof?
>>31071438Climb, deal with ice, and also make Ceru's entire forearm wicked for a backswing.

Most of them are of Lilac...I never really thought that bondage pic would ever be relevant...but I just knew one day that I'd be able to use it.

>>31071794>reaction picsI do too. I like your style Anon. I also have this little bit of OC.
You set yourself to climbing, extending your claws into the dirt where you feel it to be stiffer and kicking your feet to boost yourself up.You go a bit at a time, making decent speed, just not quite as fast as Mukon and Kurojo's outright leaps. They really jump good...You find yourself up a bit to a root and just as you sink your claws into it, you feel something pelt your back... Something gross.Kurojo and Mukon make a sort of chuckling chatter before they really look down. They seem to get serious all of a sudden. You start to look down...Kurojo squawks something that you can't understand, but you''ve already paid the exact wrong thing mind.Standing down at the bottom of the cliff is a large monster huffing and puffing in silent rage as a tiny thing wobbles upon its head before a long gangly finger points up at you.It's the tiny mankey, and he brought his papa. You look the thing in the eye and it looks just pleased as punch for a moment.You smile at it nervously as it sets its kid down upon the jungle floor with a pat on the head...You swallow as it looks back to you. The glint of endless and unspeakable rage in its eyes before it lets out a primal roar and starts hauling ass up the cliff face, tearing out hunks of dirt as it rampages up.The little mankey cheers on and you scream as this punishing primate ascends toward you.> Shoot back down at it!> Keep screaming.> CLIMB CLIMB CLIMB!> Drop down on it!> Don't stop screaming.> (Other)
>[X] Drop down on it!We aren't going to escape a primape. Nope.
>>31071999>CLIMB CLIMB CLIMBDon't scream. It just might make it angrier. We gotta get up to Mukon and Kurojo.

>>31071999> Shoot back down at it!Melee would be badass but suicidal.
>>31071999>> CLIMB CLIMB CLIMB!
>>31072082This. Keep climbing + Icy WindAnd stop screaming.
>>31072064fine fine, shoot it with a ice spike through the eye.Lock On to make sure. At least its charge will make it predictable.
>>31072116psybeam would work better
>>31072051Using Icy Wind would be bad since it has Defiant. Its attack would go up.>>31072116That's even worse. Anger Point raises its attack to max after receiving a critical hit.
>>31071999Psybeam that sucker.
>>31071999> (Other)CUT THE VINESCUT THE GODDAMN VIIIINES
>>31071999>>31072130This.Use Lock On to target its head and Psybeam to confuse it. With any luck, it should give us enough time to climb up to the birdmen.
So, I'm seeing CLIMB and Icy Wind.You have 75% stamina7 stam cost.Yes?
>>31071999>>31072163>>31072140>>31072130Good idea.Adding my vote to this.
>>31072163Psybeam is rank 1. Icicle Gun is 4
>>31071999Turn on the cold. Try to leave patches of slick ice along the path up so that it slips, and climb up with all due haste. As we're climbing up try to get a lockon on the Mankey, then hit it in the head with Psybeam right as it's getting to the slippery section, hopefully a Super Effective Migraine combined with a slippery handhold will be enough.
>>31072193I actually switched my vote to using Lock On and Psybeam.
>>31072156It's bouncing off the goddamn rocks, nigga.>>31072193When we get to our birdbros, can we then start shooting down at it?Unless they tell us otherwise, of course.
>>31072193I'd prefer to use Psybeam.
>>31072193Not Icy Wind, since Defiant is bad. Psybeam to confuse it and slow it down, then climb as fast as we can afterward to Mukon and Kurojo.
>>31072223Yes.If you get there before the ape gets you.
>>31072193Considering Defiant, I'm changing my battle plan:>STOP SCREAMING>CLIMB>Spray/Freeze portions of the cliff to make the primeape slip
>>31072193Yes, we can psybeam when we get to the top.
>>31072245Defiant is only a problem if it actually gets to us. If it's too slow to move, then all the attack boosts in the world are useless.
>>31071999Shoot water on the cliff below you and use Icy wind to freeze it over. THEN CLIMB

Anyway... while I'm thinking of it. I didn't have a chance to participate in the last thread, so I had to read it in the archives. I thought the bits with us exploring the island were really cool, and I enjoyed it. Good job, Prof.Like, I'm not trying to like... suck up or something, I just feel like QMs don't get enough compliments when they do a good job.
>>31072422I get it. Kinda helps after the way the last thread started.

You throw a hand down in your panic, lock on and fire randomly.“No, no, no! Get away!” You yell as you fire water, which seems to run off the ape's anger as steam, then an icicle and the monster literally shatters the thing in one of its loping, climbing punches, then you finally resort to the last thing you think of- the psybeam.You feel your gun adjust itself and let out a shimmering beam of energy, hitting the thing through one of its defensive punches. It stops suddenly, stunned by the hit, and obviously confused by what just happened.You take a deep calming breath as the thing seems dazed, the little mankey starts screaming up its own little rants spitting venom in its own beast tongue. Thinking in advance, you spray water over the rest of the way as you climb up a bit more before sending back a sudden horrid and chilling air.>-5>-7>63% staminaThe water freezes over into slick sheets and you feel like you have some assurance as you look back up to the top of the cliff. Kurojo is sliding down to meet you, yet Mukon is nowhere to be seen. Where-You feel a pressure at your back as something whips past. A look down and you see Mukon's dove straight into the dazed primate with his arms crossed over his chest, driving the thing off the cliff.In a second hasty movement, he kicks off and lands beside Kurojo upon the cliff, they slap their hands together in an odd custom and Kurojo raises Mukon's hand in victory. Mukon looks as though he's flying with the way he ascends the cliff upon his talons.Kurojo finally meets you partway down and offers you a hand with the primeape lying sorely upon the ground. His talons digging in as he literally stands half-sideways upon the cliff.
>>31073108Fuckin' aura users.
>>31073108darn showoff birds.be impressed we shot the primate!
>>31073108Oh shit, they know the Jump move from FF.
>>31073169Oh man. And they have spears. They're fucking Dragoons.
>>31073108Demonstrate gratitude.Also holy shit that Primeape is still alive.
>EVOLUTION] Integrated with presence of Amber claws to make icicle gun firing easier!What does this actually do? Because we know it didn't decrease the stam cost on Icicle gun, so what is it actually doing?
>>31073257Literally a Falcon Kick, I was going to say. ...even though they're like parrots. Close enough.
You take his hand and are thrown over his shoulder before he gives a laboring push off to ascend to the next rock outcropping. It's an amazing feeling as the win blows back your hair and his colorful feathers tickle your nose. The ground disappears so suddenly, it's as though you were never bound by it.It'd be nice to fly one day.A second push and the two of you are another part up.He pauses as he finds firm footing and takes the last leap to the top, his talons slipping against the stone as the two of you begin to fall from the edge.Suddenly, the two of you cease your fall, and there he is, Mukon standing at the top again, holding Kurojo powerfully by the forearm. The big birdman has strength...He seems to chide Kurojo a bit as Kurojo returns his own little bit of chatter with what sounds like a sound of relief.After getting pulled up, you brush yourself off, finding poop upon the back of your swimsuit.That stupid mankey... You frown.But when you look up... You see it all.There large trees with houses built within and around them. Some are hollowed out in part, others using the large branches of the trees as support. They range from big to small with obvious differences in what the buildings are used for, though you couldn't quite say without a better look.A river runs through the place with pools dug out and barred off from the rest of the fast-moving water. Little birdlings play in them, other, dull colored adults seem to be washing tools and other such things...You notice the oddest thing though... There aren't really any guards. At this entrance to these grounds, the only one that lies in wait, staring in your general direction is a dull-colored whatever they are fiddling with some bones, shaving them with small tools and rocking back and forth upon a stone that seems to be carved out into something of a seat.
>>31073291>That stupid mankeyWe're gonna kill that mankey one day. Maybe not now, maybe not soon. But far in the future, we're going to kill it.I can feel it.We won't even be happy about it. It'd just be nature running its course.
It inclines its head in your general direction and you get the feeling of old age from the creature. In gentle avian dialect, she utters chirps, tweets and other odd sounds you'd swear to hear from other creatures.Mukon is the one to speak to her in return. You catch, “Sherurean” among his words and the creature seems to listen intently before looking to Kurojo and trading some words with him.Kurojo replicates some of the mankey's chatter and the primeape's fury before outright chuckling as he gives you a pat on the head.You smile bashfully as you incline your head to keep him clear of the horn.The old creature says,”Sharuree-an.” before beckoning you closer. A vacant stare about its eyes.> Step forward.> Hide behind Kurojo.> Bow.> Speak...> (Other)
>>31073291well, at least they have a fair population.Wheresmarine though.I'd love to take the tour, but gotta search.
>>31073331>>[x] Step forward.
>>31073331> Step forward.
>>31073331>> Step forward.proceed with your long winded explanation old manI know one is coming
>>31073331>> Step forward.
>>31073331>Step forward>BowSome common courtesy should be shown. Not that they would have the same gestures, but they would understand the intent of respect and thankfulness.
>>31073273Our fingers don't get in the way when we fire our guns anymore.Before, we had to use our chilling claws to turn the water into ice, but then the Remoraid teeth came back in and turned into chilling fangs.At least, I think they're the Remoraid teeth. I always thought of them that way.
>>31073331>> Step forward.>Bow"Cerulean"
>>31073331>Step forward>Bow>>31073380Think of it like the hooks that are hidden in an octopus' suckers.
>>31073380But, mechanically speaking, I don't see any actual bonuses from it.Is it purely a flavor thing or what?
>>31073331> Step forward.Closed-lip smile and claws retracted. We're meeting someone important now.>>31073327I don't think we're quite there as a ranger, but goddamn, if we just fucking hunted it down and ate it, that'd be just perfect. Fucking Mankey. Maybe we could go full MonHun and make a nice hat out of it.>>31073380Ohhh wow. I didn't realize that at all. That's quite interesting.
>>31073291>It'd be nice to fly one day.Getting our evolution for the flying capabilities is going to be a bit messy...
>>31073331We should bow at least a little bit.
>>31073443Noooo, we're part octopus nowTentacruel pls go
>>31073431They were using their talons to do it and were leaning against the cliff-face.Point is though, they were hands free.
>>31073331>>31073476Yeah, bowing seems like something we should do here. Just add that in addition to stepping forward.>>31073477Tentacruel is a giant jellyfish.
>>31073409Probably, yeah.>>31073402Oh boy. Got an image?
>>31073517Let's not have this jellyfish/squid/jellysquid discussion again.
>>31073409Yeah, it's just some nice flavor, guys. Our actual bonuses from the evolution was the expanded bladder capacity and access to new moves.>[EVOLUTION] Integrated with presence of Amber claws to make icicle gun firing easier!Although, if we weren't capable of it before, we're now capable of rapid fire icicle guns, apparently.
>>31073552Neat. I never knew those were there.So Prof, are the 'teeth' like these hooks, or are they more like the Remoraid teeth?
>>31073584I think it might make it so it's harder to screw up. Like, now we won't have any chance of shooting our own fingers from a critfail or something like that.
We need to get the mankey poo off our back, eventually.
>>31073676yes.First thing.Is there like, a river around here we can jump in?
>>31073695I was thinking we could just reach our hand over our shoulder and watergun our back.
>>31073706eh, that kind of works.for now.seriously though we need to wash thoroughly later.
>>31073522>>31073552>>31073605Here's another look at the suction hooks.
You give the creature the brief respect of a bow as you correct the elder,”Cerulean.”The creature inclines its head, while Kurojo taps your shoulder to draw your attention.He places his claws together, interlacing them with his palms up. He brings them up before his eyes, obscuring his forward vision as he inclines his head, crest all the way up like a mohawk.You begin to repeat the gesture until the elder bawks,”Kuro!” and the young bird steps back with a bit of shame.The elder beckons you forward again and you comply without further interruption.“Sharurean?” It asks, an old voice, eyes not looking at any particular point upon your face.“Cerulean.” You say again, looking up into the old creature's eyes. They're kind of clouded... Is it... blind?“Kana” It returns. An introduction?“It's nice to meet you Kana...” Is it a girl?You note the surroundings. This is the edge of the village. They have an old blind woman down here? Is she their lookout? You frown as you ponder the implications of this. The dome would never... The dome.. right.Marine.“Kurojo said that he'd help me find my friend. Can you help?” You ask, still looking up at her with your shimmery eyes, only to remember that she can't see you.Kana slowly ponders your question,”Herrpu?” She slowly shakes her head.“No?” You ask.“No herpu. Kana no herpu.” She points to Kurojo and Mukon,”Kurojo, Mukon herpu.”She points to a building deeper within the village some way. “Kahkori herrpu. Shakon Bakana Herrpu Sharurean”You nod and feel a gentle old hand that's left its busywork upon your head, gently but firmly feeling your red hair. “Sharurean Kahkori herpu find Sharurean friend.”“Who's Kahkori? Your leader?” You ask as the hand begins to trace the features of your face. You squint your eyes closed for a part, but don't find it disagreeable.
So anybody else think we should go native for awhile?I kinda want to stay here until we can fly back, Learn Aura superpowers, and generally become a badass.Marine will LOVE Arua.
>>31073647Reminds me of when we formed a lump of ice in our esophagus and couldn't breathe.
>>31073764Yeah, Colossal Squids are fucking terrifying in s perfectly rational manner. (Also a note: those aren't common to all cephalopod species, but kudos to you for knowing that any of them have it.)
>>31073855The more i see of these guys the more i agree.The cliff diving and high fiveing is so Marine.
>>31073855It's not really the kind of thing we'd do. Our priority should be to get back as soon as we can. That doesn't mean we can't try to learn as much as we can, but what's most important is to be able to quickly report back.
>>31073912Think about how hard that is gonna be. It is perfectly rational to build our strength before attempting a journey back.Not to mention bringing the power of Aura back to the Dome and how much that would help. Actually Mastering Aura would be the largest reason due to its insane usefulness and the fact that no one in the Dome knows of it, It is quite literally us bringing back a lost power. A good and reasonable cause.
>>31073855I agree. We should both go native for a while and learn aura with these birdbros.
>>31073855As awesome as that would be, I don't think it's in the cards for us. For one, all our friends would think we were dead. Possibly for several years. I mean, sure we could take Marine as our Muscle-wife, and do learn badass Aura shit, but it wouldn't be right to ditch the dome.As tempting as it is. And it is. I suppose, if we can get back to the Dome safely, we could make sure this place is marked on our map so we could come back someday. Maybe we could spend a timeskip that way.
>>31073723I was thinking it's just on our swimsuit, and we have no reason to wear it constantly.
Aura is kind of like Medium powers in that anyone can have it without type problems isn't it?That's another point to its usefulness.
>>31073952Yeah, it's perfectly rational to build up strength.But that's not related to what you were suggesting.
>>31073963>>31073969I'm thinking 6 months to 1 year to get a strong grasp on Aura. Then we head back to the Dome.That's reasonable right?
>>31073912we'll probably have to, assuming we can't establish a line of communication with the dome/human civilization in the immediate future.after we find Marine, we have to learn where we are geographically (did rocket training teach Ceru to use the stars to judge her location?) finding and or building the means of escape, acquire supplies for the journey, and potentially wait out storms or maybe even seasons for safe sailing weather.of course this is all just an assumption.
I'd imagine that Marine would be the perfect match with these birds.When we get back, she'll probably be the one coaching people on how to use aura techniques, while we both pioneer different ways to use it.
>>31073952You're misunderstanding each other.There's nothing wrong with building up our strength and learning as much as we can. That's what the other anon said. He's just saying that we should not delay any efforts towards finding/creating a method to return to the Dome. It should be our primary goal each day and have everything else come after.
>>31073990I'd say we should try to leave as fast as possible.Like maybe if we're able to note the location down accurately, they'll send an Elite Four member here to learn the technique.Because we really should try to leave as soon as we can.Don't wanna keep the Boss waiting.
>>31073965so...what you're saying is take off the swimsuit and go for coconut bikini/palm skirt combo.
>>31074017Mother > Boss
“Kahkori.” Her hand leaves your face just before it gets down to your mouth. She gestures to herself,”Kana Kahkori.” She gestures to Kurojo, ”Kurojo Kahkori.” Then Mukon, ”Mukon Kahkori.”“You're all Kahkori?”They all nod.”Arru Kahkori.” Kana affirms.She gestures to the place around you,”Karkiko.”And that's how you found Karkiko village in the middle of the sea on an island with no name you could call it.You left Kana and went away with Mukon and Kurojo, heading toward the place that she'd pointed out.You receive some looks and some bird calls from other Kahkori as Kurojo and Mukon answer them back.You give them a “hello” every now and then and some of them seem to get really excited when you talk, immediately repeating crude speech back to you as they adapt the words.“Herro” begins to catch on and you soon start hearing it everywhere and even in some distant calls. This is actually more embarrassing than you'd reckon.It's a pain getting back up again as you're forced to hitch a ride to the understory upon Kurojo's back. Looking back down, at the far-off earth, you kind of wonder how you'll get back down before a large eye blinks at you from the side of your vision.Nearly jumping, you turn and draw your guns to see that it's one of those tree monsters from before. It's looking at you keenly, curiously.Kurojo gives it a low and rumbling call that's returned in kind by the creature before it receives a passing pat upon the snout by Mukon as he urges you onward.You look back warily at the large creature as a colorful little birdling runs by and offers it a little berry that's happly slurped up by a large green tongue. For a moment you think it's going to take the birdling too, but the result is that the birdling's just a bit sticky and tweeting cheerfully before communicating with some poorly articulated low rumbles that don't suit its high voice.
>>31073952Look. We get you're excited to learn about Aura. But you're blinding yourself to what people are saying.We will not prioritize anything else above developing a way to leave the island.
>>31073855>>31073912>>31073952>>31073958>>31073963>>31073990Bear in mind. This seems like the kind of situation that the Boss would want investigated, so I'd say there's a very good chance we could be coming back here, once we find our way home and make a full report. (also holy shit, I finally managed to be online for this, it's been way too long Ygg Dearest Duke.)
>>31074006I son't think we should leave before learning a decent amount of Aura. That doesn't mean we should not find a way to leave the island. We can find a way without immediatly taking it.Also think about how incredibly dangerous the journey back will be, we're gonna have to be stronger to make it back.
>>31073990That's a little quick, I think. I was thinking we'd pick up the basics over a year or so via timeskip. But not now. It's not right for us to ditch our mission to do this. We should totally learn Aura stuff at some point, but it'll have to be later.Like I said, let's mark it on a map and come back later. "I discovered a badass civilization that can teach us awesome shit" sounds a lot better than "I went AWOL for a year to learn magic powers."
>>31074070You're getting as bad as the anon who kept pushing shelder implants in the past, anon.
>>31074078We're in the middle of the ocean, we probably won't be able to come back.I imagine that ships stick to the coast and we are no where near the coast.
>>31074070You do realize how easy it is can be to shutdown Aura right?
>>31074078>"I went AWOL for a year to learn magic powers."It would be more of "I got stranded and did what i had to to survive. Oh and I have this awesome new power that no one in the dome has ever seen and i can teach it to everyone"
>>31074122this excuse only works if we legitimately couldn't make it back.
>>31074103If there's a way home I'd imagine there's a way back.
We have no idea on how long it would take to learn about Auras AND OR how long the journey back will take.We should hold judgement on that course of action until we find Marine and then make a plan when we have FACTS and NOT ASSUMPTIONS on what to do.
>>31074116Mainly just Espers.
>>31074138We're not even talking about plans. We're talking about the mentality we're going to take.
>>31074103>>31074122Fair points. Let's put it on hold until we have a better idea of where we are and what the situation is. Once we know what's going on, we can make a decision.
>>31074132We're on an island surrounded by sharpedo.What makes you think there is?>>31074138this is true
>>31074142Anything that fucks with the air fucks Aura.
I feel like Marine will push staying more than we will and she will be the one to bring up justifications to Ceru.
>>31074103We're in Poke-Japan. We're on the Orange or Sevii islands.
>>31074158I think this might be the powerup arc
>>31074116It can be beaten by esper bullshit.However, thanks to Crytten and a bunch of training, we get rolls against mind intrusions now, and still have Evil mode on top of that.Although going outright Evil mode will probably prevent us from using aura fully. But other than that, aura won't have too much of a downside.
>>31074172The Sevii islands would have open ocean conditions. They don't have the protection of the coast.
>>31074185It's like smell, apparently. If you have a piece of aura, you can track it, and the wind can interfere with aura detection.Which would be a reason why Flying works well against Fighting in this universe, I guess.
You eventually find yourself in a hall built of wood and... is that bone supporting the ceiling? You blanch at the sight of a giant rib-cage holding up thatching and thick fronds.Dim light filters through would-be windows and you see a few older-looking, yet not elderly birds looking upon the three of you as you enter.Kurojo demonstrates the bow from before and seems to start off with explaining the situation. He eventually makes the mad ape sounds from before, says your name, points to you and even says,” Herpu Sherurean find Mah-reen.”The old birds speak amongst themselves. There's a dull colored one with a missing eye, a bright colored one with a deep scar in his beak, and then the last one is another dull-colored one without much any extraneous damage. She seems to be the one in charge.> Ask for their help.> Step forward and demand that they help.> Stay quiet, let the others take care of this.> Talk to them...(write in)
>>31074185Aura is like sound, it relies on air as medium to do shit.
I feel like Prof will make us stay here via some sort of seasonal type thing like weather or something like it.I'm totally okay with this.
>>31074218> Ask for their help.These birds really love hearing us talk to them.
>>31074218>>[x] Ask for their help.ask and you shall receive
>>31074207That doesn't mean it is useless, just that Fighting types can't smell like dogs and shit, minor drawback if even mentionable.
>>31074218>>[x] Ask for their help.Try to be polite about it. We're worried about our friend.
>>31074218> Ask for their help.Well, they seem to be the authority around here, so why not see if they are willing to lend a hand?
>>31074218>> Ask for their help.
>>31074218We should explain the situation briefly to them on our terms.> Ask for their help.> Talk to them...>I got lost in the ocean, and so did my good friend. We need to find each other.
>>31074218Should we do the bow thing?
>>31074218>>Other: judge the situation, does it look like we're supposed to speak or would we break the flow of things? Let's not interject anything if this looks to be some sort of tribal tradition.
>>31074237> Stay quiet, let the others take care of this.Kurojo already told them what we need. They're important, we're the guest. Let them speak first.>>31074207I was under the impression that Flying > Fighting because you can't hit someone if they're flying.
>prof is handing us a way to divine the intentions others INCLUDING EVIL TYPES so we don't end up sticking our necks out every damn time to talk when we run into a intelligent monster.>Da Boss will be mad if we're late for work!!!>>31074303but Aura Sphere can't miss
>>31074218>> Talk to them...(write in)Things to ask now:Pleasantries, making a good impression, other villages, and what dangers there are here.Things to ask later:Learn about their culture, how we can pay them back later, maps. Will post more when I think about themI think we can trust Mukon and Kurojo to be enough.
>>31074303basically correct.I don't know where the who aura sound thing comes from but i've never heard it before.Aura has always been like Ki like intangible and shit. But i've never watched the Anime so maybe that's why, also i feel like we shouldn't judge it's powers until we find out how Prof has twisted it, because there's no way he could just carbon copy it. We should wait for an explanation for the birdmen.
>>31074342This is true.We could know the intentions of an Esper without them knowing we're probing them.
>>31074342>>31074356The japanese name for Aura is Wave Guiding take fucking guess why.
>>31074342Ah, well here it is. An anon really being as bad as the shellder guy.
>>31074342Not exactly how I'd word the intention, but it's kinda weird that being "late" could be seen as the prime motivator...Rocket Propoganda aside, they already think you and Marine are dead.
>>31074427That really is becoming a buzzword now huh?
>>31074443He's just being derisive, Prof.
>>31074459>Shellder a buzz wordHuh, I'd think that beedrill is more of a buzzword. Shellder is just something you'd try to weedle away with.Kakuna matada.
>>31074486I love puns
>>31074486get back to writing Ygg. Don't join the clamfest.
>>31074486Kakuna Matata.What a horrible Phrase.Kakuna Matata.It means pain for days!It means lots of Beedrillwill chase you for many days.It's will probably!end painfully!Kakuna Matata
>>31074459He's an easy target.
>>31074510I didn't want to shut up like an oyster. At the very least I'm not krabby.I wish I weren't doing this on porpoise.Huh. There's no dolphin pokemon.
For those who don't know what aura is, herehttp://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/AuraIt IS like sound in that tracking Aura can be disrupted by "disrupting" the airspace. But as soon as the disruption goes away the Aura is plain to see. It isn't like it can be blown away. And most other Aura abilities are unaffected, not to mention the passive boosts it will bring.
>>31074527>Huh. There's no dolphin pokemon.Well get funking on it then.We need some OCs that aren't MURDER and DEATH.
>>31074443It's been feeling like you handed us aura as a kind of apology. Personally, I think we should accept it, if only as a way to help counter future shadowruns.But we do want a way to get back to the dome so we can become a pop star with our eventual 20 Charm.>>31074527Lanturn.
>>31074552>Dolphins>Not Murder and DeathPick one.
>>31074552no I do not want rape caves
>>31074552How about RAPE instead?
>>31074427ad hominem a poor rebuttal makes.>>31074527>>31074552whorpoisewater/darkthe rapist pokemon
>>31074443Maaannn, they didn't have much faith in the Fat Cat, did they? Our friends are gonna be so fucked up without us around. Goldie is probably crying into his spoons. Alexis is doing a victory dance. Bruise is shedding muscular tears while lifting free weights. Giovanni is like, "aww shee-it," realizing that he just lost his only sane ranger. Somewhere far, far away, our mother gets the news and tries to cry. It's too cold for tears. Fucking arctic.>>31074527picrelated
>>31074561Not murder and death to people.Anything that a small child can safely pet is not a murder machine.
>>31074552Dolphins... kinda have a propensity for raping things.... Whaaaaat? It's not murder or death...
>>31074576>ad hominem a poor rebuttal makes.Nah. It works pretty fine.
>>31074587they rape things/people to death in rape caves
>>31074583They kill sharks for fun.
>>31074584Christ. First Tentacruel, now...Okay, look, it's dolphin-like in the anime, alright? It's playful, you can grab onto it and you can swim with it and shit.
>>31074578>mother gets the newsOH GOD NOGET BACK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
>>31074576>ad hominem a poor rebuttal makes.It works depending on the context. If his point was just to call you unnecessarily pushy, then, well, that's really the only reply he'd need to make.
>>31074583>>31074561Nope Ygg has the right of it. Dolphins are pretty vicious creatures depending on the circumstance.>>31074578Mom cries hail.You also forgot about Aqua, who now has to deal with the trauma that his childhood friends are all gone and he couldn't do anything about it.
>>31074609..... Please?Can you pretty pretty please give Shapedo a predator?Or make it a humanoid and the hunt Sharpedo and they're total badasses.
>>31074587>move listhardengunk shotHorn Drillsubmissionlickbeat up
>>31074609Porpods: bane of the Sharpedos. (also rapemeisters, but really who cares if they kill sharpedos.)
>>31074644Er, wow, just fucking relax anon. Yeesh.
>>31074630Anon.They already sent the message.Good news is, she'll come back to celebrate her little snuggums returning from the dead and getting kickass powers.
>>31074578Meanwhile, Lilac is all like "Oh no, she's definitely Alive. if she were dead, I would have added her spirit to my collection of 'friends'"
>>31074609Well that's cause sharks are assholes. they kind of deserve it.
>>31074619The tail is positioned for side-side motion like a fish, not up-down like a dolphin. It also has the glowing head bait.Behavior in the anime is not enough to call it a dolphin. Tons of pokes in the anime don't act like the things they're based off of. If you go by anime behavior, then many of the bug pokes would be closer to dogs than insects.
>>31074634can we at least wait until we know about how long it would take to learn it before we make a decision on it?
>>31074659Someone has never seen a joke before.
>>31074644We weren't mauled by Sharpedo while drifting along the ocean. Only when blood is involved do they come shooting to that location, apparently. Although when those Corsola hit us, we probably should've been mauled. But that wouldn't be fun, now would it?
>>31074666This is... kind of a point actually. I've got a feeling that Lilac isn't going to believe we're dead until she devours our ghost herself...
>>31074660Keep telling yerself that.>>31074644The feel where I should've made dagoons look like Orcas with that counterpart esper like a dolphin... That black/white color and sleek skin of the bottlenose or black/white/yellow pattern of the common.I fucked up.
>>31074666The devil child speaks the truth, any one of our friends who puts stock in Lilac's powers will have faith. Faith of the Heart.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLs4MGTTXRU
>>31074681This whole thing started with a big misunderstanding. Some anon kept talking about "going native" and an anon replied to him that our main effort should be in finding a way back. Then the anon kept talking about how aura is such a big thing...And then one anon got prissy about people wanting to leave first.
>>31074695That's corsola territory son.They shoot everything.
>>31074630You know what the worst part is? It's not that it's too cold to cry. It's that she's so inhuman that she doesn't have the tear ducts to do it anymore. She's halfway through her next message to us, actually, when she gets the news. Slowly, she puts down the recorder, puts her head in her hands, and tries in vain to cry for her only daughter. >>31074666>everyone else crying>Lilac giving no fucksAlso... can we STOP GIVING PROFESSOR IDEAS?! Jesus Christ Anons. The last time we did that he made DAGOON.
>>31074677You win this time, taxonomist.You win this time.
>>31074670na most of the time sharks attack people it is due to one of 2 things blood in the water or they saw a person and did not understand that they are not seals
>>31074660>>31074699We won't see her until we go meet her ourself.She isn't allowed to come back barring dire emergency, Elite Four policy.
>>31074719We should get a Corsala and become SPINE GUNNER.
>>31074721But... but... but I want Porpods... silencers of sharpedos, meisters of rape.
>>31074717And that is a slanted view.You can drop the issue now though, we've all moved on.
Anyone else wanna see a Gliscor ranger? Shit would be like a predator drone if the pokedex entries are to be believed.
>>31074763Hey, I only ever got into the discussion once before. I've got no horse in this race.
>>31074763>You can drop the issue now though, we've all moved on.Ah, look at you, being dismissive of other people.Honestly, just because you didn't like that people preferred to prioritize finding a way off the island, that doesn't mean acting like a jerk is acceptable.
>>31074792that's not the issue anon, it's that you're bringing it up again when it threatened to devolve into something unpleasant the first time. So could you please let it drop?
>>31074747We'd have to sacrifice our Ice-typing, though, since it's also part Rock.I think three Octillery and a Dewgong is enough raw firepower. And we're already sharp to touch, and we can only get sharper.
>>31074762>you finally make it off the island in a boat you made>bro-fist Marine>you learned badass aura powers together>something rocks the boat>Marine falls into the water>"Eh, no biggie, water-type.">Pod of Porpods appears>Marine gets pulled under, screaming>you put one between her eyes, out of mercyYou are worse than 3 Hitlers.>>31074747Rock/Water. The spine parts would almost certainly be Rock type anyway. I'm sure we'll find something else that let's us shoot things better.
>>31074819 Where do you think that get that pink color from?
>>31074812I'm prioritizing moving on with the thread instead of getting into a drawn out argument that will basically boil down to opinions. Everyone already agreed to wait for more info anyway.
>>31074817I only spoke up since someone else brought it up again.
>>31074840...B-Blood?Get back to writing
>>31074845Your attitude is horrible because you're not being a peace maker, you're being an ass.It's not as if he was bringing it up again. Someone else did and he was just replying. Don't be a douche and just plant the end of the conversation anywhere you like.
>>31074832*snicker snicker snicker* I try. Though not very hard. it comes naturally.
>>31074832You're FIVE Hitlers.The first rule of quests is to NOT give the QM ideas that he can use to fuck you over with.
>>31074916In all seriousness though, I just really want something that kills sharpedoes. Because fuck sharpedoes.
>>31074916Legendary based on Dread Cthulhu when?
>>31074940Big octopi kill sharks.So Octillery?
>>31074946... dude why... and I thought I was being bad...
>>31074958That would have to be an Ancient Octillery. because dam they're normally tiny.
>>31074963It wanders around at the bottom of the ocean and the dagoons offer sacrifice to it.
>>31074940Tentacruel. You know its to be true. Besides both squid and jellyfish are known to eat sharks IRL.
>>31074916See here:>>31074721That's me, literally just saying that. Now that certain other anons have already planted the seeds for more horrible rape monsters, I don't think I can make it any worse.>>31074946This guy however... eh, there was probably already a Cthulhu legendary in the works considering that we already met Dagoons.
>>31074958Point. Also I feel that there's too much of me just here. think i'ma wait a bit before any more posting.
>>31074940Just try to find a way pass the typing issues, anon.Like our typing penalty against the dagoons before was canceled out by our Rocket Training. And since Prof renewed the rolling system, our ranks have actually started to matter in rolls.
They go back and forth a bit with Mukon eventually taking the floor, speaking on a bit about something before saying the word,”Punch” gesturing to you and demonstrating along with some other words and things that they went over with you during your impromptu training session that's led into the late evening as it is now.The scarred male chortles a laugh and gestures to you,”Shrurean. Pawnchu.” You sigh, giving a bow as instructed and demonstrate a punch, a kick, an inner crescent, outer crescent, and even a palm strike.Mukon only corrects you three times.By the end of it you make your case,” I was washed up on the beach without my friend... I'm not from here and would like help finding her. I'm.. lost...”“Frohm here?” The unmarred female asks.“No, not from here. I'm not from her.”“Not frohm here.” She nods. “Sherurean, find Mahreen? Kahkori herpu? Sherurean rike?”You nod, for the thousandth time, yes!“Sharurean,” The one-eyed female whistles for attention. She rolls a claw, her eye keen upon you.“What?”“What.” She repeats back.“What do you want?” you frown, scrunching up your eyebrows.“What do ryou want.” She says again, almost mocking this time.“I want to find Marine!” You raise your voice to the stupid monster mocking you. Really? Is it this hard for them to understand?There's a pause this time.“I want ryou to...” The female rolls her claw again.You tip your head to the side, furrowing your eyebrows. “What?”“I want ryou to...” She does so again, more persistently this time.“Speak?” You ask, and as you do she claps her claws together with a muted sound from the feathers.“I want sharurean to shpeak. Kahkori want to shpeak.”“So if I talk you'll help me find Marine?”The scarred male,”Sharurean talk, Kahkori find mahreen. It is...”
>>31074940We could try to learn Freeze Dry or Aura Sphere. Maybe get agile enough in the water to throw good punches.>use omniguns to shoot air/water around our fists>allows it to move faster, like torpedoes>cave its shitty nose in
>>31074973Not like this setting already doesn't have giant pokes all over the place. Tropius are only about the size of a large man, but the ones here are enormous.
“Fair?”“Fair,” the three agree.Kurojo gives you a pat on the shoulder,"Fair Sheru?" He whispers down to you.> "Yeah, it's fair."> "When are we looking?"> "Why?"> (Other)
>>31075012>>[x] "Yeah, it's fair."quid pro quo. bartering bodes well for the potential intermingling of our respective cultures
>>31075003Pocket monsters are garden variety.These are MONSTERS.
>>31075002Jet powered pimp slaps.
>>31075012> "Yeah, it's fair."
>>31075012> "Yeah, it's fair."> "Why?"I don't really understand what she meant by speak. She wants us to tell them about our home? That's fine, actually. It's nice to be curious.If I'm right, we should>Ask to learn more about them too some time
>>31075012> "When are we looking?"not to be impatient but she could be CURRENTLY bleeding out for all I know
>>31074996Oh God....I know where this is heading...First they want to use us to learn our language.Then they'll use us for breeding.Then they'll infiltrate the dome with Lucha Libre bird-people who look vaguely like Cerulean due to many many bird cocks in us and then.....WRESTLEMANIA MCXIXXCV!DO YOU SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAT THE KAHKORI ARE COOKIN?
>>31075012>[x] "Yeah, it's fair.">[x] "Can I ask why, though?">>31075023Could we learn how to shoot Air out of our omniguns? Seems like it could eventually unlock Aeroblast.
>>31075012>> "Yeah, it's fair."I see no reason to not merge all those options into one.I can assume that they want to learn our language. Possibly to communicate to us better. Maybe they want a favor from us.
>>31075012> "Yeah, it's fair."> "Why?"That doesn't sound too bad. The Kahkori have been pretty bro-tier so far.I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Because it will.
>>31075002>[X] "Yeah, it's fair.">[X] "Why?"This... for no reason I can really pinpoint is setting off all KINDS of warning bells....
>>31075012>> "Yeah, it's fair.">> "When are we looking?">> "Why?"
>>31075062They don't have a language and have been using Aura + basic chirps to communicate and desperately need language.
>>31075044I still can't stand the thought of our blubbery catgirl being used for breeding. The moe is overtaking me.
>>31075125Speaking of that. Where's the paste of Ceru eating a dragon?
>>31075118I thought of this too. Like I said. Not sure why it's setting off warning bells, but it is.
>>31075125I feel like we aren't "fat" we just aren't cut like all the other rockets. We could pinch the fat, but it isn't rolling off of us.
>>31075125You guys are pretty into the idea of Ceru getting kidnapped and turned into a breeding machine for wild monsters.It worries me that I'm not repulsed.
How do you think Devon is taking Ceru's "death"?Bawling his eyes out or extreme denial? (although he would be correct if he takes the denial route)
>>31075142So now that the final evol has been changed to Ice/Flying, do we still have to eat a Dragon? or just a flying type? or what?
>>31075173Dragon still. Hasn't changed.
>>31075150It's also been stated that with our evolution we've slimmed down somewhat (I believe the cannon explanation was that we were getting more streamlined).
>>31075155I'm pretty sure Prof is above putting us in anything too "magical world".otherwise we'd be neck deep in muscle girlsNot that I'd mind that
>>31075150Yeah, yeah, we know. Blubber is different from fat.>>31075160Acceptance? Yeah, people die. He may feel a bit lonely (for the loss of a rival, at the very least). Hopefully he isn't mean spirited enough to make jokes about it to everyone else, though. Bruise seems like he'd get angry at it and Sanna's got a hard enough task of keeping people off of Devon.
>>31075142Oh. I was waiting for the end of the thread.Here it is now.http://pastebin.com/rjz2UD3T
>>31075200That's with our omniguns' bladders.I'm not sure if Prof commented on it or not, but most people do seem to think that evolving our seel will redistribute the blubber better to look more streamlined like the dewgong.
>>31075160He's probably shifting between relief that she's not around to murder him anymore, anger that she went and got herself killed because he KNOWS she did something stupid to put herself in risk (which will be confirmed if he hears about the communications prior to Ceru's "death"), and then after that probably a "Yep, she's dead. Fuck..."
if Ceru ever gets to pick her call sign, what would you like it to be?personally, I'm leaning towards Cheshire
>>31075202I kinda doubt Devon's just accepting it, for two reasons. The first being that we were a significant rival that, while I'm sure he wouldn't admit to anyone else, I suspect he considered to be on par with himself. Thus to accept our death would correlate with accepting his own mortality, and Devon? Accept his own mortality? Right. Second he's definitely Tsundere for us, and that sort of thing doesn't lend itself to rationality.>>31075223I'm pretty sure it was mentioned that the blubber was being slimmed down too. Though I feel like it might have been in an off-hand post by Yig, and maybe even under a spoiler. I could be remembering wrong, of course.
>>31075278Eh, a snowflake would be better. We're not really like Kitty, who's defined by the animal she looks like, but by our typing. I mean, you know. "Ice Queen."
>>31075278ALL OF THE THIS.
>>31075301>>31075320>>31075278I guess with how she's scared if smiling it'd be an irony.I just realized the cheshire could be relevant to either of my quests.
>>31075278Nah. How about a Barioth's face?>>31075194So wait, we get to be Water/Ice/Dragon after all? I thought Dragon counted towards typing? Or have you alleviated the 2-types-only rule?
>>31075335No, it's Ice/Flying. We still have to eat a Dragon to evolve it fully, though.
>>31075278>>31075301Yeah, it doesn't really suit Ceru. She's cat-like, yeah, but otherwise, the connection is pretty tenuous.
>>31075335It's Ice/Flying. But you need to eat a dragon.
>>31075213>Meanwhile, Devon's taking pictures with his Index.You're fucking great.If only he had joined us
>>31075352Ah. Your wording confused me back there for a bit.>>31075300I agree with this, though. Ice is our domain.
>>31075300>>31075370A stylized snowflake would be cool.Maybe something crown-like.
>>31075379Meh. I liked Cheshire because apparently we have a lot of cat-features in our appearance, but w/e. Majority picks. Also I am a liiiiiittle bit obsessed with Alice in Wonderland. Just a tad.
>>31075213I like your writing, only complaint is how Ceru mention Evolution. Should have said that she feels tingly and good and changing and that shit but not specifically said evolution.
>>31075364I tried to, but it felt forced.There hasn't been a scene where Devon's really 'accepted' us, so I didn't feel like I had the authority or confidence to write such a scene. Or something...Doing fanfaggotry for something you can influence is hard when you don't want to taint it. I don't want to be another fluff bringer.
>>31075396We've got fur and cat ears (our jaw was modified a bit to let us bite better too, although whether or not that's too generic to count as a cat-like characteristic is up for grabs), but our face doesn't look as much like a cat as Kitty's does.
>>31075213Needs to be more subtle with the whole "connected to evolution" thing. Maybe have a brief feeling of her "teeth" aching, and tail suddenly feeling much stiffer. Mentally, she could hear the cry of a Barioth, or have a brief flash into the mind of Bliger.Another thing to add, too:>the blood is so warm, so warm it's bubbling>It feels so good, but I bet it feels better cold>Let's freeze it all and have a blood smoothie
>>31075408Completely understandable. The reaction you wrote is much more reasonable.The only time of it might happen is if Devon and Ceru were alone in the wild and we killed a dragon.
>>31075408I hate fluff bringer.That is all.
>>31075213You should write more, I really like your writing style.
>>31075434Don't forget our Cryten tail and (correct me if I'm wrong) cat eyes. It's also been stated more than once that we have creepy-sharp cat teeth. That being the reason why Ceru always smiles with her lips together.
>>31075438It's nice that people want to team up with Devon, but let's not forget Bruise and Goldie. Give some love to our boys!
>>31075434Oh Neferpitou... Why are you such a trap?Always a girl in my canon.
>>31075460Ah yes, the cat eyes too. As for the tail, I was just talking in terms of our face.
>>31075473....I thought Neferpitou was a chickAlso, Hunter x Hunter is awesome.
>>31075473Meowth! That's right!
“Yeah, well. It's fair. But why?” You ask, looking around the room to the strangers, suddenly wondering if there's more to this request.The three look to each other before getting up, and leaving the room, beckoning you to follow.You follow after with Mukon and Kurojo at your heels.Once outside, the male bellows deeply, a sound you heard before- it's the one that Kurojo made a bit ago.A neck loops up and there at the end is one of those huge tree-monsters, staring at you, eye to eye. Old and seeming to be a bit aware as a second bellow from the male ushers in a green lick and a few pats upon its nose.The unmarred female turns to you, pointing to the interaction,”Kahkori want speak. Shpeak to...” She points to you.“Me?”The Unmarred nods. “Shpeak to Sherurean. Shpeak to Kahkori. Kahkori help find friend.“What's your name?” You glance between the three. “Names.” You correct yourself.“I name, Jojokun” The male replies as he bids the gentle giant a little farewell as it lies itself back down.“I name, Monime” The One-eyed one returns.The unmarred bows,”I name, Iakona”Iakona points to Kurojo,”Find Mahreen.” The rest is relayed through other avian dialogue.Kurojo bows and gives you a bit of a push to start walking again. After a bit, you notice that the three of you are walking along the bridges with no sign of going to ground. “Where are we going?” You ask a bit anxiously, thinking of how youre friend must be out there, scared and alone.“Home. Kurojo home.” The brightly feathered teen offers you with a pause and another pat as he bids farewell to Mukon in his own tongue.“Your home? But I thought we were going to find Marine?” You pout, before looking back down at the ground, like a cat that's about determined on something.Kurojo whistles to you, you know because it sounds like your name. “What?”You ask.
>>31075476>>31075460Our nose and upper lip is still human looking though.Those are the biggest cat features
He points up at the sky with its fading light.“Oh, it's getting dark. That'd bad.”Kurojo nods,”Yes. Dark bad Sheru.Kurojo home, no bad.”“I'm fine on my own you know you don't have to do this for me.” You sigh. Even if he can't see in the dark, you can. It's clear as day for your eyes.“No. Kurojo do this for Sheru.”“Why?”He seems to have trouple explaining it as he works. “Please Sheru?”> “Okay, alright... Let's go.”> “Nope. I'm going to find her.”> “What's wrong? Scared of the dark?”> (Other)
>>31075403>>31075437Seems like I'll be making a second version.>>31075458Aw, jeez, thanks. I try my best to convey the feel of a scene as best as possible.I've considered doing quests, actually. But I'll have to do some one-shots first to really get a feel for doing shit on the fly. I always take loads of time editing and regretting this and regretting that and editing some more.So who knows what I'll do next.
>>31075504>> “Okay, alright... Let's go.”
>>31075504>[x] (Other)Ask if there's some sort of something that comes out at night here.
>>31075504> “Okay, alright... Let's go.”We should trust their judgement, but while we follow, we should ask him to elaborate.
>>31075486In manga it's alluded that she's a guy.In the 2012 anime they decided to just make her a girl.I prefer the latter because Muh insane yan/dere/dere motherly chimera ant catgirl.
>>31075505I know the feel, I really wanna run a quest and even have notes drawn up but time + muh editing always prevents me from doing it.
>>31075504"Will Marine be ok?"Normally I'd say no, but I think Ceru's experienced enough failure to be hesitant about going hot-blooded reckless protagonist.
>>31075504> “Okay, alright... Let's go.”Searching inside a jungle at night is suicide.
>>31075504> (Other)if the dark is so bad, why do you think we can leave marine out there?
>>31075504Eesh. There's probably a monster of some kind that comes out at night.
>>31075526I read and watched both. Guess i just missed it.I figured hose two (small) bumps on her chest were tits.
>>31075504>[x] “Okay, alright... Let's go.”
>>31075505It's great, really. Makes me want to try my hand on an epic elder dragon fight.
>>31075540>Searching inside a jungle at night is suicide.Well, it would depend, actually.>>31075504Prof, what's the charge on our second voltorb?The mankeys are probably going to be asleep at night, so that's one threat down. With our vision and equipment, we'd be able to go around invisibly.But this all rather depends on what kind of monsters get up at night. Which we should ask Kurojo.
>>31075504>> “What's wrong? Scared of the dark?”Let's find out their reason. We can't just leave poor Marine all alone out in the dark with noone to help her without finding out why we should do that.
>>31075504> “Okay, alright... Let's go.”> (Other) "Can you see alright?"/"Is there anything I should be on the look out for?"We should know if they're able to spot dangers, and if not what the dangers on this island are at night.
Somebody archive this! I want to be able to read the rest of it at work.
>>31075504Ask if he can see in the dark. Ask if there are any monsters that come out at night that would be really bad.
>>31075578Don't worry. Everything gets archived.
>>31075578Uh, yeah. Don't worry about it, anon.Did you just jump into this quest now?
>>31075504Calling it now. There's another Humantype race on this island that is nocturnal and feuding with these guys, and they're the ones who are gonna recruit Marine.
>>31075607They'd have more guards positioned than the old spotter woman, wouldn't they?Unless the real guards only work night shifts.
>>31075607>who are gonna recruit Marine.Brainwashing, perhaps? Ugh.
>>31075607I really really hope not.That would kill the whole great vibe we've been having so far.
>>31075607Oh man I hope that's true and it ends up like that episode of Space Dandy.
>>31075607Oh dear lord why must you give Ygg these ideas?!
>>31075638>Marine gets mindwhammied without a friendly esper aroundGod fucking shitcunt.
>>31075607Stop giving Prof ideas you retard, haven't you learned anything from the fishmen?
>>31075607>>31075648>>31075661Maybe the Dagoon surface on this island at night to terrorize its people. Maybe the Kohkari and Dagoon hate each other.
>>31075607That actually sounds fun, if Marine isn't mindcontrolled.>nocturnal race of assassin types>Marine and Ceru learn fighting styles completely opposite from their normal skillsets>have a duel against each other
>>31075674If that happened i would probably drop.Just sayin
>>31075674I would honestly love it if that was the case. Another chance to fucking rek those things.No talking this time, only headshots.
>>31075687Eh, we'd have to face them again some time. And having some luchadors backing us would be nice.
>>31075683That's retarded and cliche.
>>31075721What would you prefer?
>>31075742not the same guy, but Marine gets taken in by a group of muscle girls
“Alright...” You submit, following after him as the birdlings and other villagers down by the pools jump up along the far-spaced steps of the trees. It's no wonder that they're good at leaping like that, they're brought up with it.You enter a home as the dark finally falls upon the world, the only light being the moon and starry night sky streaming in through the canopy.Within a dull-colored one, okay, these are their girls. Approaches you and Kurojo. She chitters to him affectionately before giving him a motherly hug and regarding you.You're introduced, and after sharing enough words for dialogue you find that her name is Jokii, and she's Kurojo's mother.You meet his father, Kankuro and little sister Kinata.Kurojo humors your appearance and seems to be rather pleased along with Kinata to hear you speak. It's a really odd thing that talking would make anyone this happy. Then again you feel happy when Boss or Mom talks to you, so this isn't too strange you guess.Kankuro pulls Kurojo aside for a moment as the two of them chatter.You sit upon a leafy bed beside Kinata and Jokii, watching the two as they chitter.You're offered some water that you gratefully sucl down much to the females' chagrin.“So, Kurojo said that the jungle's dangerous at night. Is it really that bad?”Jokii nods to you, acknowledging the question. “Bad night. Sherurean shtay here.”“Is it really that bad? Are there really a lot of monsters?”“Rot of monsters, Sherurean... Rot.” Kinata bums into your conversation.> I guess that's good enough... Go to sleep.> But what kind of monsters?(write in)> Sorry, I can't stay.> (Other)
>>31075852>> (Other)so how would one live through the night out there?
>>31075779This is where Bruise's mother came from?
>>31075852>[x] But what kind of monsters?(write in)
>>31075852>> But what kind of monsters?(write in)
>>31075852"How do you stop the Rot?""Will cold drive it back? Can you hide from the Rot? Will Marine be ok?"
Oi chummers. Having that trouble seeing due to tired.Sorry to cut it short here. Winning choice will be the first post of next thread.Friday: 21:30 server time!>>31075883Heh.
>>31075883Rot = Lot.Unless of course there are parasect on the island.In that case we are very, very glad we aren't going out.
>>31075852>[x] (Other)Show Kurojo the repel tech and try to explain what it does. That it was "tired" and couldn't work earlier, so we weren't using it. Tell him we can see in the dark and ask what kind of threats there are at night.I think we could make a mission out there to try to save Marine from a night in the jungle.
>>31075852> But what kind of monsters?>"Can't you hit them? Are they fast? Are they big or small?"They're going to end up being Sableye, which would explain why they can't just be punched into a bloody pulp.
>>31075852>[x] But what kind of monsters?(write in)>Are there any creatures that can sense us without seeing? Like through sonar?>Are there any monsters that stand on two legs and have two arms like us?I assume they'll understand what sonar means just from hearing it from us and that when they say monster, they'd be including any "humanoids" in that description too.>>31075883They're Japanese, anon. They're not saying "rot". They're saying "lot".
>>31075852> But what kind of monsters? Would they try to eat me? Are there more Mankeys? What are the monsters like at night?generally gather intel on monsters at night.
>>31075896>>31075897>>31075911>Rot>Lotgoddamnit, here I was, shadowrunning some kind of Muck/Grimer monstrosity.
>>31075896Overlimit starting late tomorrow (err, tonight) or is it 20:00?
>>31075896Oh, that's alright, Prof. It was a good thread.suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/31070514Archived! YOU'RE ALL DISMISSED.Oh, and a question before you go and leave. Our Rocket Training is at 2 because we've been training hard for 2 years, right? Does that mean it'll go up for every year of training we complete? How many years of Rocket Training do we have to go through before we're a full-fledged Rocket Ranger?
>>31075896Good show, Ygg. I'm just glad the threads are much more subdued and less rushy in terms of plot now.What'd you think about the RIP AND TEAR?
Prof needs to learn to write faster. we voted 7 times this thread, and 2 of those were combat.
>>31076005For the amount he writes, that's fine. And he usually runs for a long time; usually, we'd have potentially up to 3 more hours (2 hours lost from being late, and 1 hour from ending a bit earlier than the last few threads, but it's not uncommon for him to end around this time either).
Did we ever clean the mankey shit off us or are we just sitting in this dude's house, on his bed, while caked in poo?
>>31076484I hope to god we did.I am going to assume we did.Prof, tell us we did that long ago next thread.
>>31076484We're gonna kill that mankey.And we're gonna implant it in some cadet.And then we're gonna train that cadet, bring him to this island, and have him kill all the mankeys and primeapes on it.
>>31075213>.-.. .. .-.. .- -.-. / .- / ... .... .. -you motherfucker
>>31077101I didn't even notice that.That fucker.
>>31077101>>31077134The fuck does that even mean?
>>31077148That's what it is, not what it means.
>>31077159I'm just telling you what you need to know to go translate it yourself, anon.
>>31077101>.-.. .. .-.. .- -.-. / .- / ... .... .. ->LILAC A SHIT
>>31077101Dolphin murderrapist mons eh? They should beWater/FairySuper Effective and resistant to Sharpedos.They just want to have fun. Know what would be fun? A little Play Rough with that Sharpedo, they're so serious all the time. Oh look, some landwalker fell in the water, let's take them to the Fun Cave!But seriously, I think it makes more sense. Dolphins are generally sociable, friendly, even helpful. That they happen to not give a fuck about some casual murder or rape sounds rather Fae to me.
>>31077239I am really, REALLY, not looking forward to Ygg introducing fae. They were a bag of dicks in Gargoyle Quest where every single option was the wrong option and I fear the day we are forced to relive that.
>>31077239Oh, woops. That wasn't meant to reply there.
>>31077263Prof has already introduced fairies through Lilac.And a quick check on bulbapedia shows that the only fairy type in the human egg group is Mr Mime.Everyone else, we can just kill. Or just not trust at all if they're intelligent enough to speak.
>>31077304Eh, I'm sure Prof won't flood us with human fairy type OCs. Just one, since anything more than that would be a bit too...what's the word...distasteful.
>>31077317They don't need to be humanlike to be nasty to deal with. Not sure what has you thinking that.
>>31077326Was this you?>>31077304
>>31077326Looking at his other post, I think he's saying that, compared to dealing with humans, fighting with monsters is simpler. There will always be tricks on how to fight a particular opponent, but it's more straightforward than deciding how to deal with another "human monster".
So whenever we get another chunk of xp, I'd like to spend some of it on a sharpshooter/gunner skill.Prof said we could get something like that to boost all of our "shooting" attacks. Would be good to do.
>>31077549It would be good to up our Ice Shard and Psybeam ability.I'd also like to steadily increase our Icy Wind so that we can create a miniature Blizzard around us. I mean, it's already our most heavily invested move, so we might as well push it until we can do Blizzard.We'll want to upgrade our Lock On and Quick Attack as well, since the latter can be chained with our shots.
Is it me, or is Prof just ignoring that Tropius is supposed to be able to fly?I mean, that one scene in Jurassic Park was cool and all, but still.
>>31077591How does that matter in regards to what's happened in this thread?
>>31077590That's all also true, but putting a flat +X on every shooting attack is still a very good idea.
>>31077604I was just referring to their massive size.
>>31077615Yeah, but Icicle Gun seems to be our main go-to ability for attacks. And Psybeam is useful just for the eventual moves we can learn from investing in it enough. And for its potential combination with Icicle Gun.
We should probably see if these bird guys have encountered any other human types.Which means we'll probably have to describe what a non-augmented human looks like.
>>31077630Shooting attacks encompasses Icicle Gun, Water Gun, shooting misc objects out of our guns (Bullet Seed, shooting metal bearings, Rock Blast, etc), Ice Ball, maybe Psybeam (not sure), and any evolved forms of those moves like Hydropump or whatnot. Getting a level or two in a Gunner skill upgrade would provide a bigger boost per xp spent to everything at this point.
>>31077657>Getting a level or two in a Gunner skill upgrade would provide a bigger boost per xp spent to everything at this point.Oh, I just understood what you meant. Yeah, I remember Prof mentioning us being able to learn stuff like that.
>>31077657>maybe Psybeam (not sure)I don't think you have to worry about that once we've managed to combine it with Icicle Gun, since then the bonus would apply to that.
>>31077630I wanna learn Rock Blast and Bullet Seed.Just kind of shove things up our arm holes.
I wonder what Skill Link ability does in-quest. Just increase accuracy?
>>31077704What's this skill link you're talking about?
>>31077712You know how some moves in the videogames do that "hits a random number of times between 2 and 5" thing? Skill link makes it so that if the first one hits, then all five will hit.I was just wondering how Prof would make that work in the quest. Would probably be come off a brain implant that boosts hand-eye coordination and aiming or something, kinda like the Remoraid lobe.A lot of the moves it affects are shooty moves, like Rock Blast, Bullet Seed, and Icicle Spear.Most of the pokes that get it are normal types, though I don't really want to get another implant. I was mostly just wondering about hypotheticals and thinking about other types of shooty rangers that prof could introduce.
So while I feel like going out at night is a really bad idea from contextual evidence, I'm worried about Marine's chances.Not sure if she's that kind of Elite.
>>31077738They're both shooty, but the difference between Skill Link and Sniper (Remoraid) would be in how they're shooty.Sniper lines up one shot and makes it really hurt (buffed crit damage). Like a long-range marksman.Skill Link makes it so you land lots of smaller shots. Like one of those trick shooters that goes through an obstacle course with a revolver and plinks everything as fast as they can.
>>31075901That's a good idea. Seems.an appropriate reason to use that volt orb.
