>>31330421Do human types have the same M-Virus capabilities as rangers?
>>31330421Reporting, Prof.CAW CAW!>>31330510Probably. It's probably what made everything transform after all.
Made a Ceru.Still can't do hands.
>>31330421>The great cats of electricityAh, well, looks like we know what those monsters are now, if they aren't OCs anyway.
Plan was to have it on Thursday. Please stay calm until then.
>>31330421WOOOOOOOO!LUUUUUUUCHAAAAAAAAAAAA(instead of reporting in)
>>31330551Is she pregnant?
>>31330551Needs to be fluffier, shouldn't be able to see any folds or definition.
>>31330551It looks kinda disturbing, man. I know you're looking for chubby, but her stomach looks distended and reminds me of malnourished poor who think being just fat is healthy. You may want to adjust the size of the stomach a bit.
>>31330598I think the problem is that it seems to be just her stomach instead of being equally distributed.
>>31330421WHO IS this new white person?
>>31330581SHE IS NOW!
>>31330551The face and body are just... eugh.
>>31330598If we're ever going to try and get a commission of Ceru we may need to go into dangerous territory. Plumbing the depths of Deviant we may want to pursue Grim-kun or theamericandream
>>31330626It's just not proportional.If you're looking to make a tubby, here's a reference.>>31330551Thighs and stomach are okay, but you need to shorten the length of her upper torso and increase the size of her upper arms.>>31330718Nar-kage.
>Just keeps writing...
We need to streamline her.Ygg, what do you think of this shoop someone made?
>>31330819You could have stopped this
>>31330841As if he wanted to. Although pregnant Ceru is pretty extreme.
>>31330828this is what I am imagining.
>>31330904Thats actually pretty close to my mental image as far as body shape goes.
...I guess I'll be back when Prof is done writing...
>>31330904Not enough definition around some areas, but it's basically the same thing but thinner.
>>31330940Are you not entertained?
>>31330819>implying this isn't exactly what you wanted
>>31330988Nobody wanted this
>>31330551>>31330740Yeah, this sounds about right. You should either shrink the tummy a bit or shorten her torso.
>>31330718That's a fucking chest burster.
It's been two days since you found the White Stranger, Cerulean at the fishing hole. There was something honest and kind to her wave even if it had felt a bit off when you first met her. Even as she sat there crying like a mankey fledgling. You were surprised that she was so eager to find her friend even given her predicament and her state. She felt hungry, and freshly ravaged by something. You could sense the sea upon her. Could she have been from there?You had promised to help her find her friend, though you hadn't been aware of how late the day had gotten, even as Mukon warned you against the dark. You still feel it from when father put you to the floor after you tried to sneasel out of your promise. Not in your body, but in your pride.You nearly shamed him and disappointed Ceru.She was more capable than you had thought, and yet...Two days. She's been bedridden and stricken by fever since the two of you found her friend, who oddly enough doesn't look like her and suffers the same.Kajani, the old wave healer has been looking after the two of them in her medicine nest. You're visiting again today, parting the curtain of beads and nodding to Kina and Hana, assistants to the matron. They acknowledge your presence,”Visiting the strangers again today Rojo?” Kina looks to you, her eyes half-lidded and seeming a little bored for whatever reason.“Yes. She is my responsibility as my guest. Does she not honor you?” You puff out your chest and raise your crest proudly. Back straight and form flexible, like Mukon taught. This is how a man should carry himself.Kina clucks her tongue a bit at your display, yet rolls her eyes and returns to crushing herbs for a poultice, their scent permeating the air with rich and stinging fragrance alike. This is one that causes a good pain.
>>31330828other then the tail since I am not sure if it will change or not I think that looks perfect
>>31331273Kurojo Quest, oh my.>>31330551Not exctly what I imagine her like, but it's not bad. Needs a bit of meat on the rest of the body and les son the belly, though, and make the tail a bit more feline instead of...racoon?>>31330718This is perfect, though.
>>31330551How's this look?
>>31331473Huh. That's nicer.
>>31331473Looks pretty good, actually.If you personally prefer her to be a bit chubbier, though, make sure to either shorten her body or distribute it more evenly along the upper half of her body.But it's pretty nice. And now I wonder if the Rockets sell bikinis...
>>31331473I think it looks pretty good.
>>31331473>no pregnant bellyHorrible and disgusting shit.Just kidding. It is better than the first one, but the pregnant version is way too awesome.
>>31331473Holy shit, you fixed everything.
>>31331537The problem with making her chubbier is that she's fluffy as well. She would eventually look like a giant puffball of fluff and blubber.>>3133154410 minutes in photoshop.
>>31331473>How's this look?A hell of a lot better. Thanks for that.
>>31331273well, at least you and ceru managed to not die.
>>31331610>She would eventually look like a giant puffball of fluff and blubber....Isn't that what she's been described as?
“Strangers are more work. I'd rather take care of fledglings like other girls of my age, but mother says I must learn medicine from the crone.” She shakes her head and scoops out the mixture of berries and bitter herbs with a hand, smearing it into a leaf,”And here I am, talking to a young new man that killed a Nar-Kage as his first hunt.” Kina stares at you for a moment as you chose not to acknowledge her unsavory words.“The Stranger is where we left her yesterday, and the day before that. Her condition worstens, though it is slow. I have not seen this illness.” She points back through other veils of beads.You bow your head, and carry on without looking back at her. You hear her sigh and chatter quietly to herself.Hana carries water-sap to the back, apologizing for Kina's behavior.“Sorry she is like that, Mukon is here now too if you wish to see your mentor.”“It is fine, and I know. I feel his wave here. His hand, is it-”“Fine it is Kurojo.” You hear his old voice from beyond the beads, “I'd almost do without it to forever remember the day you were made a man.”“Hunter Mukon, please do not joke like that.” Hana chides, as she enters his healing chamber, “You have others of the flock to teach.”“They may be taught fine by a one-handed mentor. But this one is my brother's son. The distorted Nar-Kage at that!” He bellows out in a cacophonous laughter, only to be shushed by Kajani.“There are others sick here!”The crone hisses out from Cerulean and Marine's healing chambers.“Indeed, I am sorry Wave-Healer. My mirth got the best of me.” He seems to bow his head as a shadow beyond the curtains. “Jojo, you have a moment? Come and sit with me.”“Hunter Mukon, there is no drink here-” Hana tries to reason with him, yet he's insistent.“Nonsense, we will drink of the water-sap!”“Hunter Mukon! That is for the healing!”
>>31331664>Kina stares at you for a moment as you chose not to acknowledge her unsavory words.>KinaOh wow. What a flirt. And I thought she was Kurojo's sister...or is Kinata someone else?
They didn't stick Mukon's arm back on?Well this is bad. They might not have stuck Ceru's back on either.
>>31331664wonder what's wrong with those two.post-mission drug crash?
>>31331744Kina =/= Kinata.Kinata is the sister.Kina is the flirt.(And my subconscious reused the first part of the name.)
>>31331775no, they did I think.he just said he might have it left off anyway to remember the day.
>>31331775Uh, they stuck it back on.>“It is fine, and I know. I feel his wave here. His hand, is it-”>“Fine it is Kurojo.” You hear his old voice from beyond the beads, “I'd almost do without it to forever remember the day you were made a man.”>“Hunter Mukon, please do not joke like that.” Hana chides, as she enters his healing chamber, “You have others of the flock to teach.”
>>31331775inb4 it grows back on its ownas octillery tentacles
>Ice Queen>White One>FatassCeru gets the best nicknames.
>>31331776Infections, treatment differently acting to different organisms, lost arm, M-viruses shenanigans. Maybe Marine is evolving too, and it's fucking her up.
>>31331825Oh shit. If Crytten started evolving after this, that'd be a thing.>no pain meds
>>31331473Not fat enough
>>31331796Oh, good. I thought you were promoting incestuous relations for a second there.And then this truly would become a magical realm.
>>31331824I giggle to myself every time I hear her be referred to as 'Ice Queen' and 'Fat Cat'. They're just perfect for her.
>>31331885THE STRONGEST EGGS COME FROM ONE NEST
>>31331849Crytten already started evolving, what with the cartilage coming out of our fur, I believe.
>>31331664they need to just sort of dump ceru into a pool of water and give her a minute
>>31331948It just got pushed out by the evolving omnibladders. But it is maturing; the claws became retractable.Evolution doesn't happen all at once, but is a gradual process, apparently.
>>31331984The omnibladders compressed to be more streamlined. It makes no sense for that to push the spines out further.
>>31332005No, they expanded briefly before compressing. Prof was the one who explained it.Just think of the expansion as the omnibladders preparing to reform their structure.
“I'll be back in a moment Mentor Mukon, I must see the white one, Ceru and her friend.” bringing your claws together, you bow to him. Your father's brother, your Uncle. He taught you well of the Hunter's Wave. The Wave used to track, kill, and deceive prey. While you excel at the two prior, the third is something that you need to work on. Cerulean's calls were different though, more like a Kahkori, and less like a beast. More rhyme and reason. You could feel her intentions expressed clearly through the wave. You enter through the veil, and see the Crone sitting before the two, spreading Sap-Water upon their stomachs and stirring their energies with her healing waves.Since yesterday their minor wounds have mostly healed, it's Cerulean's frozen arm- at both points- and the sickness that'd holding them back.“Here again then Kurojo? You are the reason Mukon had raised such a fuss?”“Yes Elder Healer, I apologize for my mentor.”“Worry not of it. I'll have none so young apologizing for the old while my old bones still draw breath.” She brings up a haggard claw and points over to a woven mat at the foot of the bed. “Sit now, I must speak to you.”“What of, Elder Healer?” You ask as you comply with her order. She is the head woman of this nest. Her word is respected as law here as custom demands.“The girl's arm is still covered in the ice-water as it drips away day by day. It is preserved and the flesh is still strong and alive. Her wound is clean and it does not fester with the Nar-Kage's poison as I have neutralized it. The issue is in her- their sickness.” The crone looks to you with her deep old eyes.“I have not seen this sickness for a long time you see. It has not plagued our people for a long time.”“Forgive me if I am wrong Elder Healer. But are you saying that you cannot cure their sickness?”
>>31332137>spreading Sap-Water upon their stomachsRubbing fat loli tummy is now canon
>>31332137>and deceive prey.Well, I guess this is something Ceru's going to excel at, considering her implant.
>>31332157no anon shut up
The crone shakes her head, closing her eyes, “As it is, I cannot. We have not collected the remedy in generations since the sickness plaguing us.”“If I may ask, what is the sickness?” You speak carefully, looking over the white one and her friend as they lay upon the beds. Speckles of red stain the fur around her mouth, and you can feel her labored breathing. Her condition is not good.Kajani seems to catch your eyes wandering, “Blood. It's been coming up in their fits. The sickness is the 'Red Tide That Breaks Waves.' When it ailed us long ago, it ceased our breath and ceased our hunter's waves. Not even monsters would come for us when they caught wind of our sickness.”The healer returns to her ministrations, sending the wave through the girls' bodies.“Will they recover?” You nearly hold your breath,”Will it spread?”“It will not spread.” The Healer hangs upon that word, going silent for a moment,”Yet... I am unsure that they will survive. Without your help.”“My help?” You look to the Elder crone, “What can I do? I am no healer!” You raise your voice to the crone, and she quickly shushes you as she did with Mukon, baring her old teeth as she does so.“You are a man, and now a hunter. You will hunt for their cure.”> "Their lives in my hands? I should not be entrusted with this task. What if I should fail?"> "Will I have no one to help me?"> "I will do so. I am a man and a hunter now."> (Other)
>>31332137Huh. Is the M-virus a sickness? Or is it something else from the Dome?
>>31332225>baring her old teeth as she does so.Khakori have teeth?
>>31332225>"I will do so. I am a man and a hunter now."
>>31332225> (Other)"Tell me what is this cure I must find."
>>31332225>> (Other)explain further.What do you mean by hunt for the cure?
>>31332225Can we ask where they got the disease?
>>31332225>[x] "I will do so. I am a man and a hunter now."you have a penis, you have duties to live up to
>>31332225> "Will I have no one to help me?"
>>31332225[X] "I will do so. I am a man and a hunter now."- "What is this cure I must find?">>31332240Since it's something that has affected the tribe before, I imagine it's some sort of tropical disease that their group has become immune to, but Ceru has no such resistance, having never encountered this disease before.
>>31332225>> "I will do so. I am a man and a hunter now."Man, I just wanted a sweet Nar-kage fur coat. Even if the damn thing's made of metal.
>>31332225> (Other)What's the cure?> "I will do so. I am a man and a hunter now."So if I got this right, Ceru and Marine are Kurojo's responsibility now? So I guess it'd be inappropriate for him to ask for help in hunting for the cure, especially after he's now seen as a man by the other Kahkori.
>>31332240Likely a native disease that the kakori have adapted to already.
>>31332333did we catch the fucking pokerus?
>>31332333>>31332315I asked the question before Prof posted the next part.
>>31332349The M-virus is pokerus.This is some shit that blocks your ki or something.
>>31332244They have a beak at the front, serrated parts at the side and then molars and semi-molars. They're missing front and canine teeth.>>31332350Asked what question?
>>31332452>Asked what question?This one>>31332240No need to concern yourself with it now.
>>31332478The M-virus is the omnipresent magic space virus thingy that's the reason behind POKESCIENCE!
>>31332487The assumption was that the Kahkori might have thought it was a sickness, anon. How hard is that to understand?
>>31332499What's so hard to understand about "It's everywhere and it's not the sickness"?
>>31332516Anon, don't be a douche to him. Because you're looking like a pretty big douche right now.>>31332452Hey Prof, how can the Kahkori bare their teeth? Do they actually have lips?
>>31332516The difference, however, is that Ceru and Marine have implants and that the M-virus may interact with their body differently due to that.That was the logic behind it, but Prof already posted the next part.No need to act like such a snot, man.
>>31332572>Hey Prof, how can the Kahkori bare their teeth? Do they actually have lips?They pull back the beak to show their teeth. It's like raising your lips to them. Their beaks aren't full beaks like an actual bird, but coming off of where their lips would be and still able to move and commit to facial expressions.
>>31331825Well, I suppose the Nar-kage would have given a LOT of xp.
>>31332883XP is separate from the implants' maturation, I think, although I do think physical exertion might help in its progress.
Oh. Right. XP/Ten/Charm/Ing gain.I guess that's waiting until Thursday?
>>3133296120 Charm WHEN
>>31332961Yeah, today is dedicated to birdman.Kurojojo's Bizarre Adventure NOW!
You bow your head in contemplation for a moment. What would your father deign to say? What would he find most honorable?“I will hunt for their cure as my elder wishes. What must I find?”The crone appraises you, nodding her head slowly,”Good, good. You're casting out your fear Kurojo. Did the white stranger help you?”Your crest falls back,”Elder, I do not think-”“It was with her that you faced the hunter's nightmare, the Shadow Not Heard. Nar-Kage. Most your age kill an okorizaru or some other beast that can be felt through the wave.When you feel fear, such a monster knows it. Wave or no.” The Elder closes her eyes and shakes her head with her beak calmly shut.“Another matter for another time however.”The crone speaks to you of what you must find as she finishes treatment upon the two. Each have their own round of hacking coughs, speckles of blood coming up and leaving them looking worn.You learn that there is an herb known as the “Blue Burst” that was written to heal the Kahkori from the Red Tide That Breaks Waves. At least enough to allow them to recover on their own after some time.It's located on the other side of the Dead Fire's summit in the shade. Kajani warns that there are likely to be monsters up on high such as airmds or the dreaded rathas that roost there. As they dominate the mountain, it's less likely that you'd run into Nar-Kages, though there is also the chance that you'd run into the other Hunter's bane.Qapeca.Though they're likely on another island around this time of the seasons.The White One says something, her blue feline eyes looking into yours with a sense of loss as she reaches out to you with her cold amber claws glinting through the tips of her fingers, “Kurojo. Am I going to die?”
>>31333013holy crap she's conscious.
>>31332910I really meant xp in the normal pokemon sense of 'your Seel is now level 40', rather than our stat gains here, but sure. >>31333013For some reason, I hear 'Qapeca' and think 'Alpaca'. Then I laugh.
>>31333013Ask to borrow the thingy. (repeltech)
>>31333106It wouldn't fit, since Ceru's suit is built for a 12 year old girl.And Kurojo relies on his senses. And must man up.
>>31333013Pre-evolved version of one of these?
>>31333013>You learn that there is an herb known as the “Blue Burst” that was written to heal the Kahkori from the Red Tide That Breaks Waves. At least enough to allow them to recover on their own after some time.Heh. Red versus Blue.I wonder if this disease originated from the Silver Peak.
Remoraid evolves at level 25, leveling rate medium-fast.Seel evolves at level 34, leveling rate medium.We had the Seel graft for longer than the Remoraid. Icy Wind is our highest ranked move.SOON
>>31333013>rathas>qapecaHahaha oh wow... this just went from an episode about healing, to a healing type episode.Also, I love the Ceru art. >>31333106It's an unfamiliar piece of technology, and it blocks Kurojo's Wave powers. It'd be like throwing him out there blindfolded.
>>31333209>It's an unfamiliar piece of technology, and it blocks Kurojo's Wave powers. It'd be like throwing him out there blindfolded.The nar-kage are already invisible to wave and the mountain is apparently infested with them.
>>31333198We only had Seel for a few months before we joined the Rockets and got our new grafts.
“No Ceru.” You say in her tongue. “Kurojo find thing. Make you and Marine better.” You grasp her hand, and fold your claw around it. You can feel the sick running through her wave like a typhoon waiting to happen. The cold within her is natural, but unbalanced and falling out of order. It's ruining her strong body.It's ruining such a strong Hunter's body.You need to save her. Save them.You depart from the room before Kajani takes her leave, running into Hana as you turn the corner from the veil of beads.She nearly spills the vase of Water-sap as she halts abruptly, looking you right in the eye for a moment before looking away,”Ah, Jo- Kurojo. Uh, Are you seeing Mukon now? He'd asked for you.” The healer looks back up into your eyes for a moment. Reading her wave, you are a bit confused. There's a strange warmth aside from her tenderness, and an anxiousness. Could she...> “Hana... Do you favor me?”> “Hana... You want to help the stranger too?”> “Hana... Is Mukon being a dishonorable lech again?> “Hana... I...”> (Other)
>>31333240> “Hana... I...”
>>31333013>okorizaruJust straight up using the Japanese names?
>>31333235>The nar-kage are already invisible to wave and the mountain is apparently infested with them.Um, you need to reread that sentence, anon, because you really messed up.>>31333240I DO NOT KNOW WHO THIS HANA IS.> “Hana... Is Mukon being a dishonorable lech again?
>>31333209>healing type episodeI've seen this before. Explain S'il vous plait.
>>31333240>[x] “Hana... Do you favor me?”Disregard duty, acquire birdpussy
>>31333240>The cold within her is natural, but unbalanced and falling out of order. It's ruining her strong body.Huh. Is the Red Tide making Ceru's body reject itself? Maybe the Red Tide was some sort of cure made in the past to cure the mutants...but then people found out every human has already been infected with the M-virus...
>>31333240Kurojo got quite the status bump, huh? The birdies be falling all over themselves for him.Why do guys like Kurojo and Bruise get surrounded by girls? It's all in the muscles, man.> “Hana... I...”
>>31333240>> “Hana... Do you favor me?”
>>31333328Alternatively, a biological weapon unleashed on monsters - The elder said even the beasts avoid the infected.
>>31333240> “Hana... You want to help the stranger too?”Full-On Oblivious Route.>>31333297It comes from Madoka. The writer referred to himself as a "Healing Type Writer." Meaning that Madoka was a work that would be happy and emotionally healing to the viewers. It turned into a minor meme among the fandom because of how dark Madoka is. It's ironic. So, when I say that AoPH is a healing-type quest, I mean that horrible, awful things are going to happen to fat-cat loli and all her friends.
>>31333240> “Hana... Is Mukon being a dishonorable lech again?
>>31333376>>31333328It could just be a disease.More of a quickly thrown together excuse to play as birdbrain and prevent Ceru from actually learning anything useful during her stay, really.
>>31333376Also true, but I'm trying to tie it in with what mom said in Ceru's dream; of avoiding the Silver Peak.
>>31333376It could just - you know - be a disease transferred through ingestion.Maybe all sicknesses automatically disrupt auras, too, who knows.
>>31333402This is a side episode.We shall have our training on Thursday
>>31333406>It could just - you know - be a disease transferred through ingestion. Well, she ate a raw wingull. But now Marine has it too.
>>31333240[X] “Hana... You want to help the stranger too?”
>>31333240> “Hana... Do you favor me?”
>>31333432I told you to cook the wingull!I voted for that!
>>31333283>>31333285>>31333356>Hana... I...You guys got anything to say? I threw it there as a joke. I can roll with it but...
>>31333240>> “Hana... I...”>>31333356Swimming in bitches.Or whatever the bird equivalent is for the phrase.
>>31333297In order to heal there must be something broken. A healing type episode/writer/show/ect. will be completely miserable for the characters so the happy ending will seem emotionally healing.
>>31333240> “Hana... Do you favor me?”we strong hunter now. it is our right to choose a mate. probably.
>>31333462I just wanted an excuse to use that image really.
>>31333462I... just wanted to know...do you want to help the stranger too?
>>31333462Oh, well then, if it was a joke option, I'm switching my vote here>>31333356To> “Hana... Is Mukon being a dishonorable lech again?
>>31333447Pretty sure that`s not it. Marine isn`t a carnivore, so I wouldn`t expect her to have eaten wildlife. Current options are looking like airborne or transferred by the not!tangela
>>31333432Goddamnit. So our monster biology didn't affect our digestive track as much as we thought it did? Or is it just a powerful disease? Would cooking have actually helped?
>>31333492Can't be from the Tangela, or else they'd be sick too.>>31333462Oh, switching my vote here then>>31333467>“Hana... Is Mukon being a dishonorable lech again?
>>31333462toss in help the strangerplay up the ignorant gimmick
>>31333503Nah, Prof is just sidestepping the issue and throwing up a smokescreen as to the true origin of the disease. He was, after all, the one who told us we could eat the bird without cooking it.
>>31333492We ran into a lot of shit on the way to this island. Could be the Corsola, or from the shipwreck, or the Dagoons, who knows.
>>31333432Didn't you specifically say in meta that eating the wingull was fine?
>>31333462> “Hana... Is Mukon being a dishonorable lech again?
>>31333240> “Hana... Is Mukon being a dishonorable lech again?The first option would be a distraction for Kurojo and the second one is just a dumb trope.
>>31333475 Women are very much equal among the Kahkori.They must choose you, and you them.Young hunters without a wife are desirable.>>31333526Yep.
It's just a native disease that the Khakori have built up an immunity to over time.
>>31333548You monster. Let us craft theories in peace.
>>31333503We may have just caught it from the water, or insect life, or from being exposed to it by a monster. Maybe from Mankey shit, for all we know.Like another anon said, Marine wouldn't eat raw Wingull like we did.
>>31333545I'm actually honestly hoping she wants to help, though.
>>31333548Are there female hunters?
>>31333565The last time he didn't let us in on things, it caused the entire shitstorm over the hostages.I don't want a repeat of that horseshit.
>>31333579Yes. Though some of the flock may try to persuade them otherwise it's not necessarily frowned upon.
>>31333615You understand this and that are two different problems? And that the problem was Prof's forceful railroading?
>>31333615Er, anon. The problem with that thread has already been thoroughly discussed. If you don't understand by now what the problem was, you're either just being willfully ignorant or you're trying to start shit up.
>>31333637>>31333662Its the second. Ignore the bait.
>>31333530>CorsolaMost likely. I mean, it's red tide. Red. Tide. Coral Reef. It fits.
>>31333892>I'd explain my reasoning for why I think that Prof letting us craft batshit crazy theories without telling us things he thinks we already know was part of why the shitstorm occurred, but I understand why I look like a troll.That he did not bother to tell people that the Dagoon would not go crazy and attack the hostages (which resulted from the way he described them and their relationship with their leader) or that he did not understand what the image of the catwalks were in everyone's head (related to the major problem) are all minor offenses compared to the real reason everyone got angry, although they are not unrelated.And none of that actually relates to the current situation of people making theories on what the Red's origins are.
>>31333892>>31333976Look, the one anon said they were dropping it. Let's all move on and prepare for Nar-Kage 2: The Revenge of the Thorny Cock.
>>31334010Is that happening tonight?
>>31334010Nar-kage seem like a nocturnal breed, so we probably won't see it. There's always the bird, though.>>31334022See>>31330572
>>31333976>>31334010Yeah, I say stupid shit when I'm sleepy.>>31334022Thursday. The tripfag posted as such.
“Hana... I...” You look away from her for a moment, tilting your head back in the direction of the strangers. She looks up at you, the warmth from her wave increasing for a moment.“...Was wondering if you wanted to help the strangers too?”Hana rights herself, looking directly at you with her deep sapphire feathers of youth. Glistening in the green light filtering through the understory,”Yes, I'm worried about them. Elder Kajani told me of their condition and the Blue Burst roots for treatment. She spoke of it yesterday. I would like to assist you- with Elder Kajani's permission of course.” The edges of her beak pull up as her Yellow eyes smile to you.“I would be honored. I'll be leaving shortly for the mountains-” You snap forward, staring in the direction of your Uncle's powerful wave. “-After I speak to Mukon.”“Ah. Of course.” She tips her head and passes to the side, tapping you upon the shoulder,” Be strong, we'll find it.”“I know.” You walk down the hall, your talons clacking away at the floorboards as you part the beads to Mukon's chamber.“Ah, Jojo. You look like you bear the weight of the land upon your shoulders. What in the distortion's happened to those two?” His mirth drains as he leans forward to you more seriously, patting a mat at his side with his good hand.The other's still cast into a sling, bound with a fresh poultice that Kina must've been making... No, the herbs are different. The blend is sweeter and more fragrant...You sit and share some time with your uncle, telling him about what you must do for the strangers.“It takes a good man to go so far for ones he's just met.” Mukon chuckles, clucking his tongue at the end, “This is what makes me proud. You face your fears when another's life is on the line.” Mukon touches your shoulder, squeezing it firmly, feeling the strength within your body and soul.
>>31334351Uh, we really don't need a bump, anon.
>>31334362the silence was killing me
>>31334105So how long until we meet a Zeppeli and have them die for us?
“This is what makes you a good hunter. Your comrades will never need fear you fleeing from them.” He wraps an arm around your neck and pulls you against his shoulder into a one-armed embrace.Returning it, you wrap your arms around your uncle's back and hold him tight.You never told anyone how you froze up. How you froze up, yet the stranger snapped you out of it- Cerulean snapped you out of it. You did not run, but... “You'll do fine so long as you protect others Jojo.” Mukon whispers in your ear. He pulls back for a moment before bumping foreheads with you as is his violent custom.Rubbing your head sorely, you take his advice in stride,”Yes Uncle... Yes, yes...”You feel a hard wack of two fingers right as you pull your hands away. “One more thing!” Mukon peers outside the curtain before talking low and quiet.“Think that Hana's something? She's a young pretty thing, think I might try courting her. Need a wingman to fight though. No sense in it if there's no competition, right?” “Uncle, aren't you too old for that?” You whisper, glancing outside nervously. You hope Hana doesn't hear this.Mukon pulls back,”What's this? Jojo doesn't want a few fledgling cousins?” He slaps his leg and laughs out loud again, only to be shushed from the other room by Kajani.You clench your jaw shut and hold your crest down with embarrassment,”Really Uncle? Really now?”
>>31334406Dirty old man.
“Ah, shush you. Haven't you got a hunt? Go get at it. I'd lend a hand but as you can see- I'm a touch short of one!” Mukon laughs again at his own joke, garnering the swift attention of Apprentice Kina.“Hey... Can you stop doing that? The hag's getting upset with you.”“Let her be upset, I'm seeing off my nephew and student for his first hunt since his impromptu initiation!”“Right... Well, she said that she's going to cut it off if you keep being loud.”“What, my hand? Fine witho- ““-No, She's going to cut -it- off.”Mukon blanks, instantly growing meek,”Ah, I offer my most sincere apologies. I meant no offense to the matron's nest.”Kina chuckles a little to herself, covering her beak with a hand,”Ah huh. Uh huh.” She flicks the curtains closed and struts off.Between the two of you, you're both left wondering... Was she serious?
>>31334391No, that was last thread. Geddit? The nar-kage? Deadly silence, etc.>>31334406>One more thing!Oh lord. We're fucking Bird!Jackie Chan, aren't we?
>>31334425>"Wave must defeat wave!"Nah, but I'm glad someone caught the reference.

>>31330514my google fu has failed me, what is that from?
>>31334741Terrorism Simulator. Although I think that .gif is from an older version.
It's early noon by the time you leave with Hana. She doesn't seem too scared, after all, it's night that the real terrors of the jungle come forth. The treetops during the day are relatively tame.The two of you follow the break of the river, catching view of young tropius separate from the herd drinking some water from the river. Kintos jumping upriver, likely those that the fishers have let pass. Catching them all would mean less for all.Hana keeps up with you as a fellow Kahkori should, though she is a tad bit slower than you given her profession...> Slow down for her.> Tell her to pick up the pace.> (Other)
>>31334788> Slow down for her.No need to force her to expend energy. What is her profession anyway? Healer?
>>31334769(looks at pics)nein danke
>>31334788>Tell her to pick up the paceBut in a lighthearted, teasing way?
>>31334736It would mostly be a nostalgia trip, if it was a quest. Not that that is a bad thing.
>>31334788> Slow down for her.You match to the weaker of the bunch instead of forcing them to try and reach the stronger. It's all about good teamwork.
>>31334788> Slow down for her.> (Other)Can we periodically use our Wave to check for lifesigns/threats, or is it basically always on?And to check whether Hana likes us. N-not that we care. Because we totally don't.
>>31334788>> Slow down for her.We can be ignorant of love, but we're not uncaring.
>>31334788>[x] Tell her to pick up the pace.lives at stake, sorry sweetie
>>31334892>lives at stakeYeah, if he fails Ceru dies from Super Tuberculosis.
>>31334788>Slow down for her.
>>31334788>[x] Slow down for her.
>>31334788>> Slow down for her.>>31334892Why bother having her tag along if you tire her out? Have you actually ever gone out exploring the wild before? You need to preserve stamina. Run when there's an actual danger around.
>>31334788>> Slow down for her.
>>31334770Why do you have a name on?>>31331473Oh wow. Looks pretty good. The transition from the wrist to the hand looks weird, though, but I guess it can't be helped.
>>31335008>The transition from the wrist to the hand looks weirdomniguns, yo
>>31335013No, I'm talking about the line across the wrist. I think the fur would be covering Ceru's hands too.
>>31335008The transition from the arm to the hand makes her look like a gorilla.Just get rid of that hairline so that it looks like a smooth transition and it works.
>>31335013The omnigun bladders actually shrunk in size, though.
>>31335008Is this better?
>>31335289Yes....goddamn, Ceru is a Flat-Cat, isn't she?
>>31335289Oh yeah.>>31335312She's 12. I've had a few nieces her age that started shaping up later on.
>>31335312well, she is 12. she's still developing assuming she doesn't die from super TB while we mosey in the woods
>>31335289It's so cute.
>>31335344>>31335350I was joking. I'm just glad that she doesn't look like she's Teen-Pregnant anymore. That was just... yeesh.
>>31335378So, will Ceru grow plates on her tail or will the fur just super harden when frozen to become armored plates?
Seeing Hana fall behind, you slow your pace a little to match hers. Obviously she doesn't have a hunters speed. It wouldn't be right to force it on her while she's helping out.She seems grateful for it, though it also seems to make her more anxious as the two of you leap through the jungle's old trees.The elders say that they've been around since before the first of the Kahkori. You aren't familiar with all the stories as you are no storyteller, yet you have heard that these have always been here for as long as the Kahkori have been alive, plucked from the heavens for challenging gods and stripped of their wings.Yes, your people once had wings. If you remember right, they were made of metal, and and it was said that your people's flight would make the sky thunder and the land shake.That's all well and good for a story though. Your people fly just fine now in their own way, through these ancient trees.You can feel their waves. The harmonies clashing and mixing with each other, synergizing with the other monsters that make them their home.Insects, monstrous flora, and beasts like okorizaru and eipom that live amongst the trees. The two of you carry on past a few namakeros hanging amongst the trees, hanging there lazily with moss sprouting from their backs.The sight of them makes you feel like slowing your pace as you've already slowed your down a bit. What's a bit more going to hurt?Drowzy, you eventually slow down to a halt by early afternoon, heading up to the canopy to see just how far the mountain is: It's looming over top of the two of you now. The Blue Burst is at the summit in the shade?Right?Dropping down to the understory where Hana waits, she seems to have drifted off into a light nap.That's looking like a good idea. It's pretty hot out today after all.>Current Stamina: 75%> Take a nap... You deserve it.> No time to sleep yet. Gotta get that herb!
>>31335412Next stage is the Barioth's fork-tailed and spiked split.Final stage is where the cartilage material comes all the way through into a protective and spiked armor.
>>31335438>[x] No time to sleep yet. Gotta get that herb!carry her like Yoda
>>31335438>> Take a nap... You deserve it.
>>31335438>No time to sleep yet. Gotta get that herb!Don't sleep out in the wild; you should know better than that, Kurojo. Wake Hana up and keep moving.
>>31335438> No time to sleep yet. Gotta get that herb!Come on, the blue burst grows IN THE SHADE.the shade is the best nap site.go nap with the herb
>>31335438>[x] Take a nap... You deserve it.Ceru is kill
>>31335438>People use to fly>On metal wings>Metal WingsHoly shit, they're talking about air planes aren't they?
>>31335474The cartilage material reaches all the way to her tail?>fork-tailed and spiked split.Um, what do you mean by spiked split?
>>31335438> No time to sleep yet. Gotta get that herb!Pfft yeah, maybe if we want to wake up dead. Or... not wake up or... You know what I mean. Would we notice if we were being put to sleep unnaturally?
>>31335438>No time! No time no time! No time to sleep yet. Gotta get hat herb!
>>31335511Oh fuck.>Khakori were of some nation that tried to fight the legendaries>They got rekt
>>31335513I was thinking they might have evolved from skarmory at some point but this is cool too
>>31335438> No time to sleep yet. Gotta get that herb!Kurojo, you should already be wary of the jungle's traps. Wake Hana up; keep moving. It's not safe here.
>>31335534Nah, if they evolved from Skarmory, their kids would be Skarmory. Or at least they'd be steel and Fighting type. I can't think of any pokemon that evolve into a completely different type then the original one.
>>31335511Quite possible. I mean, they don't even have Silph Co. around to police their thoughts and history, so they'd have an easier time keeping some record or at least a memory of the old world's technology.
>>31335592I dunno, with so many homebrew pokemon evolution, at least over long term, seems more realistic in this setting to me. If anything these guys are cousins with hawlucha or something
>>31335438>they were made of metal, and and it was said that your people's flight would make the sky thunder and the land shake.>Sky thunder and land shake
>>31335592>I can't think of any pokemon that evolve into a completely different type then the original one.Eevee.
>>31335670Nah, it wouldn't make sense if it came from a previous evolution.A more rational explanation that doesn't include them knowing about airplanes is them having a special evolution requirement that doesn't exist on their island anymore. Like the Bliger needing to eat a dragon, or the Nar-kage having to master a special move.
>>31335605I got the impression that Team Rocket was at least as responsible for the whole "Lie to the civvies" thing as Silph. I mean shit, we made up that lie about rogue eevees after the whole Esper thing. And it came up when we talked about that report that details all the crazy shit that the legendaries do that civvies are just outright not supposed to hear. Also, how dare you question our glorious protectors at Silph Co?
>>31335711Oh, I had the feeling that Team Rocket was more like the secret task force Silph Co. sometimes employs for special jobs.
>>31335670Oh yeah I could see them being related for sure. But not evolutions. Actually, I wonder if birdbros can communicate with all bird monsters a bit easier?That'd be pretty neat.>>31335689>Sky thunder and land shakeYep that DEFINITELY sounds like a several hundred ton flying machine to me. I use to live near an airport, I should know.
>>31335705Eevee's a special case, mate. It's evolutions are unstable for a reason.
>>31335758I wasn't necessarily saying that eevee doing it means the Khakori are the same way, I was just giving an example that fulfilled your stated requirements.
>>31335784Fair enough, I reckon. For the sake of argument, there are some that do it, but not many. And if they do it's usually for a specific reason, or something. Like a stone, or some other requirement.
>>31335818What pokemon lose a typing when they evolve? I feel like I might have seen one before, now that you mention it, but that just might be my memory playing tricks on me.
>>31335861Scyther loses flying for steel with Scizor
>>31335861>>31335888Skrelp goes from Water/Poison to Poison/Dragon when it evolves into Dragalge.
>>31335731I'm not so sure about that. The government is the Indigo League, isn't it? Team Rocket is like... the FBI or something. Silph has a lot of power because they own everything and they're rich. They can call a lot of shots, and they have enough power to get Giovanni's attention when they need it. We do jobs for Silph sometimes, but they don't own us. Our true loyalty is to Lord Giovanni and to no one else. >>31335861There's a bunch. Just google for it. The one that came to mind for me was Nincada (Bug/Ground) to Shedinja (Bug/Ghost).
>>31335861Some normal types do it, I believe. Like, Pichu is a normal type, I believe, and becomes an electric type. Course, baby pokemon are dumb anyway.>>31335888This too. Also I believe Steelix loses it's rock or ground typing to be steel.
>>31335888>>31335914>>31335917>>31335919Thanks, but I was talking more about losing a typing than having it replaced by something else.
>>31332632well that's...odd>>31333013>airmdscan't figure out what that is->rathasoh. fuck. no ice.>Qapecaeven worse, if Kurojo goes alone>>31333462this is why you don't put joke options unless you specifically say they are.>>31334788wait, we didn't leave at dawn? Ceru and Marine aren't deteriorating so fast that they can't wait a day, are they?>>31335438> No time to sleep yet. Gotta get that herb!
>>31335861I think Bellossom is the only Pokemon that loses a type (Gloom is Grass/Poison and Bellossom is just Grass).
>>31335976>wait, we didn't leave at dawn? Ceru and Marine aren't deteriorating so fast that they can't wait a day, are they?The healer's treating them as much as she can. Their condition is worsening, yet it is gradual.
>>31335917So Giovanni is pretty much J. Edgar Hoover, d-does he crossdress?
>>31336006Hm. This is tougher then I thought. Bellossom and eevee are the only ones I can think of.
>>31330421>The great cats of electricitySo what we met were definitely shinx/luxio/luxray, right?>>31336022It's also been a few days. So they're pretty tough; they'd hold until we get back with the cure.
>>31335917Government is Silph. The entire dome is run by them and those that work under them.
>>31336022Has Marine been conscious at any point?
>>31336022that didn't really answer the question: Why didn't they spend a day preparing and leaving at dawn?I'm fine if it's an honor thing or if their condition is worse than you're implying, but say which.
>>31336045It does say in the shinx' description that its fur glistens when it senses danger. That matches up with the one monster that Kurojo incapacitated.
>>31336029If Lord Giovanni does it, it is acceptable. >>31336049Ah. So Indigo League is like an independent organization. Does Silph own all the Domes, or just this one?
>>31336083The Indigo League are the rangers on the Indigo Plateu tracking down the legendaries, I think.
You resist the urge to sleep despite your heavy eyelids. It must be an effect from the namakeros. You must've accidently caught one yawning and gotten drowsy yourself.Shaking your head, you push it back and rouse Hana, whom awakens with a sluggish stretch.“Oh, hello Kurojo... Wait... weren't we doing something?”“Blue Burst. We need to finish going up the mountain Hana.” You pick her up, between her light frame, and your strong body it's easier than lifting up the white one... You notice that Hana lacks the muscle definition that Cerulean had as hidden as it was by that layer of... whatever that was.She yawns again and you shake her even as she slowly rubs at her eyes, ignoring your mistreatment before she settles her feet back down upon the branch of the tree.“Awright.” She yawns,”Let's keep going.” She fluffs up her feathers to try to shake away the drowziness as you follow behind her, making sure that she doesn't fall asleep mid-jump.She does fine for the most part, though she's slowed down a tad bit more. At least she's still moving. You begin to worry that you'd already be there if you hadn't brought her along...Your responsibility. Two lives hang in the balance.The two of you ascend the mountain into the evening, taking to talon and ground as the great-ancient trees thin out around the mountain, leaving you two to more exposed trails and forcing you to leap up and over the ledges here and there.As you progress, you feel a disturbance in the wave from the distance, something's coming down the mountain.
>>31336049Does each Dome have its own megacorp?
You call to Hana to stop and advance before her, taking her by the hand and leaping off to the side as a raging boulder flies past, almost changing directions at the last moment as if to smear the two of you into stone.More begin to come down, as if the rocks are having a race. They're smashing into whatever obstacles lie before them as though it would score them some kind of satisfaction...You feel a cave leading into the mountain from some distance away through the wave.> Avoid them by reading their wave.> Break one, that should teach the others.> Head into the cave, take shelter there until the rolling stones cease.> (Other)
>>31336220> Avoid them by reading their wave.
>>31336220>[x] Head into the cave, take shelter there until the rolling stones cease.avoid and conserve energy
>>31336220>> Avoid them by reading their wave.>Feint jumps to throw them offdoes this fall under Kurojo's poor ability at deceit?
>>31336220>[x] Avoid them by reading their wave.
>>31336220>Avoid them by reading their wave.Caves are probably already occupied.
>>31336220Fucking Graveler/Golems.Too many to punch through.Avoid them with our wave. We're good at that shit after all. Keep our friend close and don't lose her.
>>31336220> Avoid them by reading their wave.Expediency. We need to keep moving to the best of our skills.
I hope this concludes tonight, though it looks like it won't at the current pace.
>>31336328Aright. I'm gettin me tea.Though I'm not expectin' more'n two threads.
>>31336328We've got at least 3-5 hours left. Prof just needs to speed up right now.
>>31336353I read that in the most hilarious British accent.
>>31333790>red tideWikipedia says red tide is a type of poisonous algae bloom. saxitoxin the poison in the bloom causes flaccid paralysis and most of the victims die of respiratory failure. It can be spread up the food chain so we probably got it by eating that wingull. or I could be reading into things too much.
>>31336411>Got it by eating wingullHrm. Well, animals can get sick from eating other animals they can normally digest too.We probably didn't get it from the wingull, tho. Since we did get dragged through miles of ocean, and such.
>>31336411It's called Red Tide because of what it does to the Wave.And Prof already confirmed it was not because we ate the wingull. It's okay to be a bit gullible, but it's a bit much to watch someone so easily misled.
>>31336411is it so hard to imagine that it was accidentally inhaled while the both of them were unconcious and dragged around the sea?
>Stamina 60%>Detect Used!>Stamina 40%

>>31336485>DetectOHOH FUCK IT REALLY IS DETECTWell shit. Hopefully we can take a nap at the summit.
Hey Prof., I'm gearing up to run a tabletop AoPH game set in Hoenn, and I was curious, how do you see Magma and Aqua relating to Hoenn's ranger corps? I understand team Rocket because it was always implied that they had a legit front business, but Magma and Aqua were always explicitly eco-terrorists.
>>31336506It does only have 5 PP.
>>31336668Well, it depends on the game you play. One side seems more legitimate than the other. You might as well set them both up as being rival groups trying to get more influence in their Dome.
>>31336668Magma and Aqua are both groups of humans who have willingly turned themselves into monsters (the real kind not the ranger kind) in order to worship Groundon and Kyogre.
>>31336668Have fun with Devon Corp, and the various characters, like Steven and the Frontier Brains. Also, Hoenn had a space program at one point, if you want to include that somehow
>>31336668Okay. Actual spoiler ahead.Team Magma and Team Aqua have conflicting interests where it concerns what typing of rangers to focus on and what legendary deserves more attention.Team aqua believes that Kyogre is a priority as it could swallow up Hoenn with its sea, flooding out their dome and destroying their ability to subsist off of the land and threaten dome security.Team Magma believes that Groudon is the greater threat. It has potential to make the sun come down upon the dome and bake everyone inside alive. That's not to mention the fact that it could end up detonating the volcano and destroying not only the dome, but the rest of the island.This contention causes them to split their resources and divide the dome into two competing factions with citizen support.Team Aqua's the ones that still ship to Kanto. Magma's pushing for an embargo. Politics and other shit.Devon Corp is just another name for Silp Co.
>>31336806Why does magma want an Embargo?
>>31336806Why even call themselves a Corporation if they have no competition?Why not the Silph Empire?
>Hoenn's top gym is a water gym.Ehhh?
>>31336837da illusion of choiceillusion of freedom#Sedatethemasses
>>31336828Glorious motherland, and because Aqua supports the continuation. So Magma wants its end.Yes, you're likely going to need to choose a side when you make it there.
>>31336806Mooches grassyass. I definitely like the rival factions deal and their motivations. As much as I hate Sinnoh, I hope we see Galactic at some point, attempting to obtain the power of Arceus in order to remake this twisted world. >>31336828To stop the enemy trainer from using items, duh.
If we were stupid enough to get in a fight with a legendary, what would its modifiers look like?+200?
>>31336901Prof already described it in another thread. Around +20, I think.
>>31336849The unenlightened massesThey cannot make the judgement callGive up free will forever their voices won't be heard at allDisplay obedienceWhile never stepping out of lineAnd blindly swear allegianceLet your country control your mindLet Silph Corporation control your mind!Let Silph Corporation control your soul!
>>31336876>Be water/ice type>Aqua seems to be the -slightly- more reasonable of the twoI think you already have a pretty good idea of what's going to happen.
>>31336910I meant all their modifiers together. The nar-kage got more than +20 in total.
>>31336901Legendary! +YesGodlike power +Fuck youPressure! +Yes you. Rocket Training +2
>>31336938Then around +40, maybe 50.
You take a deep breath, expanding your awareness throughout the mountain. You let every ripple, every little wave flow through you as you feel the disastrous echoes reach down. You sense the foul intentions of the rolling stones as they come down, adjusting course specifically to hit you.It would probably work- if you hadn't expected read the changes in course.You hold Hana's hand and guide her up the mountain, leaping when necessary, yet otherwise walking and slipping past the the stones after their final adjustments, leaving them both baffled and rolling the rest of the way down without anything hit.The state wears you down. Normally it'd be used against a dangerous quarry and react with heightened movements to set up for a counter. Yet you're using this far longer and thus need to proceeed far more slowly to maintain it.You can feel Hana's hear skip beats as the air pressure from the boulders blows past the two of you with every close, yet predicted call.By the end of the boulders you are reasonably exhausted, crumbling down to your hands and knees as you catch a breath.You hear the distant cry of a Rathas and the return of another. “What was that?” Hana looks out into the sky scared. “Rathas, I think. Fire and poison. They shouldn't bother us, too small for food.” You reason and console her at once, getting back up to standing and letting the breeze near the summit flow through your plumage.“Are you sure?” She doesn't seem convinced, must've seen your own anxiety.“Positive.” You affirm, opening your eyes.The mountain's peak and summit. Blue Burst grows on up high. Now it's time to look for the proper shade for the plant to grow.
>>31336943>Pressure! +Yes you.Oh dear lord I forgot about Pressure. Oh man. That ability ain't so bad in the games, but doubling Stam costs in AoPH is fuck-you-in-the-ass-with-sandpaper-condoms-tier bad to face.
You sense more disturbances in the air. Truly, this is the domain of the beasts that fly... And through that they break the wave.You may end up going blind here, and the sun is working its way into the evening. > Follow the sounds of the Airmds> Locate the Rathas nests.> Search for a cavern.> (Other)
>>31336876Aqua obviously.we aren't going to abandon or dome.
>>31336985What does Kurojo know of the airmds and rathas?
>>31336985I don't really get what each choice entails
>>31336985Rathas, I assume are Rathians.
>>31337020>airmdsFlight that sounds like the clashing of blades.>>31337040Yep.Or go in a cave.
>>31337059Why might we want to go into a cave?
>>31337059>>31337068I think the better question is, why would we want to do any of these options.The cave is obvious enough. Shelter. But what about the others? We need you to clarify, Prof.
>>31337068Blue Burst grows in shade.All three areas bear shade in some way.
>>31337078You could choose other and if them look around without seeking any "trabble."
>>31337080>All three areas bear shade in some way.You probably should have said that, because it sounded like all the options were to go pick fights with wildlife for no reason.
>>31336985>Locate the Rathas nestsI don't know what airmids are, but that has the highest chance of finding plants, but probably the greatest danger of interruption.Rathians would only attack if they perceive us to invade territory, so hoping we can read the waves well enough.caves...sounds dangerous. It would be funny to come back with a khezu whelp or two sticking out of Kurojo's back, though.
>>31337080Why the fuck is everything in monster hunter a dragon/wyvern fuckheug thing?
>>31337080You should have explained that in the first place.>>31336985> Locate the Rathas nests.If they would ignore us because we're too small, this would be a better idea than entering a cavern.All of you guys should know how easy it is to find enemies in a cavern.
>>31336985Going near the Rathas is clearly a bad move, considering how dangerous they seem to be.I'd say try the Airmds?
>>31336985>>31337104>>31337114Sounds like a reasonable idea.>Locate the Rathas nests.
>>31336985>[x] Search for a cavern.haha! time for spelunking!
>>31337114>all of you guys should know how easy it is to find enemies in a cavernYep.
>>31336985>Locate the Rathas nestsand for god's sake, look out for their tails
>>31337123Airmds are worse, since they're flying types and apparently disrupt the Wave.Caverns seem like a trap option. Just speaking from experience, it's not really the safest place to go to.So...>>31336985> Locate the Rathas nests.I assume what Kurojo said was knowledge passed down to him by Mukon. So Rathas are probably the safest option here.
>>31337146>>31337104>>31337128>>31337114>>31337165>> Locate the Rathas nests.So it shall be.
>>31337165>I assume what Kurojo said was knowledge passed down to him by Mukon. So Rathas are probably the safest option here.>>31337173Was this right, Prof?
Ignoring the distant shrieks of the airmds, the two of you follow a roughly tread mountain path, the vegatation having grown rather thin up here, you find places where the dirt's loose, causing you to double-check your footing when you get to the point that you're hugging against the edge of a cliff, working your way acrosss the mountain as the sky goes into its twilight phases, giving the world a dark blush.Looking out down from the mountain you can see the rest of the island and the great trees below with the village obscured by the canopy. It's quite a sight as the two of you witness the setting sun from so near the peak.“Pretty...” Hanah remarks, staring out at the bleshed orange sun meeting with the blues and violets of the sky. “It's like the sun is a Kahkori too. A man with bright colors trying to woo the moon.” She looks up as the waxing silver moon lies in view.“Think she loves him?”“Stories say that they're always chasing each other. Well- One story says that the Sun baits the moon into chasing him. Another says that the Sun pursues the moon and at times she vanishes.” “You know many stories like that Kurojo?”“Some. I am no storyteller, but I have ears to listen. Uncle Mukon would rant on about how he'd never found his moon.”“What of the other moons and suns?” Hana points to the stars. Stories tell that they are other suns that have caught their moon and watch like a flock the chase of the Sun and Moon.“Didn't like to talk about the ones watching... We should keep moving, the Strangers still wait for us.”You head on, taking another look at the moon. Few females are ever born white, and the strangers' hair is like fire despite their waves being female. How curious.Is the white one like the moon? Does she have a Sun somewhere?
>>31337360>One story says that the Sun baits the moon into chasing him. Another says that the Sun pursues the moon and at times she vanishes.>Is the white one like the moon? Does she have a Sun somewhere?I have the widest grin, Prof.
>>31337360>Is the white one like the moon? Does she have a Sun somewhere?Here we go.
The two of you eventually find yourselves hugging the cliff face of a ratha's nest.How do you know? You can hear it snoring. Away with its heavy, enormous breath rumbling deep.They don't eat Kahkori right? Right? Oh please let Mukon be right...You check around the outside of the cliff-face with barely any room to maneuver. No good. it's all rock, nothing can grow here.Dirt... Dirt... Where's there dirt?You can see that the cliff dips in some way down, likely providing a large cavernous shelter to something else.You feel the ripples of life up around the Ratha's nest.. Could it be there?> Mukon showed you the Ratha's cry before. You can't quite remember what this one means to them though.> Sneak into the nest. A quick check should yield something.> Slip down the cliff and check out the cavern.> Get into the nest and punch the Ratha right in the face.> (Other)
>>31337433>> Sneak into the nest. A quick check should yield something.
>>31337433>Slip down the cliff and check out the cavern.I feel like they would have mentioned it literally growing in a monster nest.
>>31337433>Sneak into the nest. A quick check should yield something.It's about time Kurojo tried to learn how to deceive.But we should place that as a secondary plan. For now, we sneak.
>>31337433> Mukon showed you the Ratha's cry before. You can't quite remember what this one means to them though.That sounds like it will either be hilarious or horrifying.Let's do it.
>>31337443It's been a while since they've needed it.
>>31337433> Get into the nest and punch the Ratha right in the face.Don't even pretend that's not a joke option, Professor. Not that I'm not laughing.

>>31337433Kurojo can tell the gender by the waves, right?WHAT GENDER IS IT, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANTrathians are much more agressive and territorial because they are protecting children.rathalos are only dangerous when angered or challenged.both of these facts are still under "things Mukon could have taught Kurojo"

>>3133751843% chance of encounter>>31337554whelp, hope daddy ratha isn't coming back from a long day of patrolling.
>>31337572You do know that this roll was for encounters, right?
>>31337572Don't wanna punch it in the face?
So what are they doing with the nar-kage corpse?
>>31337587it was a roll for sneaking, right?there's still a chance that rathalos comes back and we make a second sneak roll>>31337592punching a rathalos in the face is still preferrable to punching a rathian, i suppose.
>>31337601Hopefully preparing a surprise gift for Ceru and Marine's get well party?
>>31337620>there's still a chance that rathalos comes back and we make a second sneak rollYou understand the flaw in this reasoning, right?It's tantamount to doing a re-roll for the same action.
>>31337601I still say we bring back the blades for the Farfetch'd dude.
>>31337623I think it's more likely that Kurojo is getting the loot, since he's getting the credit for the kill.
>>31337620>>31337640wait, lemme explain myself properly:If it's a rathian, most likely it has a mate and is protecting eggs. As far as I know, females without a mate generally travel more, and don't make nests.If it was a rathalos, then the lack of presence of a rathian probably means that it's a bachelor, and we therefore don't need to worry about a second monster.I could be severely mistaken on the first part, though.
>>31337657What made you think that the Kahkori gave Kurojo all the credit? The crone seems pretty aware that Cerulean was involved in the fight.And many of the Kahkori were there to witness the Nar-kage's death, at least.
>>31337657Everyone knows that we did most of the work though.Plus they probably don't have much use for its corpse
The two of you eventually find yourselves hugging the cliff face of a ratha's nest.How do you know? You can hear it snoring. Away with its heavy, enormous breath rumbling deep.They don't eat Kahkori right? Right? Oh please let Mukon be right.You crawl up along the cliff's face after telling Hana what you plan to do. You clear the stone and find yourself dealing with mulched wood- chewed up and regurgitated to create a large nesting ground.Stepping carefully and dropping to an almost awkward all four movement, you manage to avoid snapping any loose twigs, keeping the Ratha sleeping soundly with her tail wrapped around her clutch of eggs.You stare for a moment, taking in everything of the beast.The Ratha is armored from head to toe in thick resistant scales, a long tail with a club and several barbs at the end of her tail denoting her inherently poisonous nature aside from the fiery one.Dark green scales and a lightly furred back, a wedge-shaped head with chin-spikes to compliment the ones upon the wings, and of course deadly talons the size of your forearm to top off its deadly arsenal.If Nar-Kage is a test of bravery, a Ratha is a test of prestige. Strong may fall to the Nar-Kage but only the strong can kill a Ratha. You're not sure if you're there yet.It sleeps soundly, its loud snores and breath sending ripples through the spectrum of the wave as you take a look around for the little blue flower.For a bit you can't seem to find it, yet then you notice something blue glinting out from near the Ratha's talons and tail. A little blue flower that seems to be just bursting out with color. It's close to the eggs...You wonder if you should risk grabbing one of those too. Raising a Ratha from its youth... You could even fly it to the other islands once it came of age.The only problem is the parents... They'd hound you until they couldn't track you anymore.> Take the flower by the root.> Take the egg and the flower.> Look elsewhere.
>>31337703>Everyone knows that we did most of the work though.A bit too far there, anon.The most we can say is that everyone knows Ceru and Kurojo fought together.
>>31337725>[x] Take the flower by the root.business babynot like Ceru couldn't work something with the dome
>>31337725> Take the flower by the root.Ah, and I see that's where our escape route comes into play. The egg.Tempting, but we have Hana with us. She'd drag us down in our escape.
>>31337725>PoisonI hope Ceru upgrades psybeam and blows this thing apart at some point.
>>31337725>> Take the flower by the root.Cmon, Jojo. We're here to save our friends.

>>31337725>> Take the flower by the root.
>>31337725>Take the flower by the rootlet's not get greedy now. Getting the flower will be hard enough
>>31337750She could take the flower. You could take the egg. No problem. No problem at all.>>31337759>>31337743But... Riding a Rathas.
>>31337725>Take the flower by the root.Best not to get greedy.
>>31337725> Take the flower by the root.There are times where you should be ballsy, this isn't one of them. We are in no way prepped for a fight with the Ratha, and if it tags us with poison then we're going to have a lot harder time getting home. Also, I'm pretty sure the typing is against us, Poison resists Fighting.
>>31337780Your temptations do not fool me, Professor.I AM WISE TO YOUR TRICKS
>>31337780We have 40% stamina, Prof. Really now.
>>31337780Pshh, Ceru can do that when she's better and can ice the fuck out of the rathalos.You kill the parents, THEN you raise their children to be loyal servants....I feel evil now.
>>31337780I seriously hope you didn't think we'd be taking that option, what with how much stamina you've left us with.

You carefully move closer to the great monster and the blue flower growing out from amongst the pulped wood, your eyes entirely locked on the thing's face, and your movement only occurring between its breaths as you near.You get closer and closer to the point that you just just about reach out and touch one of the venomous spines.At that point your grab the little blue flower by its stem and pull the entire thing up, bringing it up by its roots.Quietly, you praise yourself in your head for the victory, smirking like an idiot as you crawl away the same way before dipping over the edge and sliding yourself down a bit.You hand over the flower to Hana and she looks it over, examining the color and the root, confirming that it is indeed the one that you're looking for.Double success!It's the right one!The two of you begin to creep away, getting around the cliff-face just as the log and slow wingbeats of another Rathas come on by, ceasing once they're over the next. Lucky thing you're already out of there, else you'd be facing two of these things.Dark falls as the two you you take the mountain trail back around into the zone just before the summit.It's gotten really dark at this point with nothing but the moon and stars to offer you light. The lack of life up here makes it hard to navigate as opposed to the jungle itself... Descent may need to wait until dawn...

>>31338527I am damn proud of Kurojo. He has way better luck then Ceru does with encountering bullshit. Must be his birdman swag.
>>31338540I blame pheromones.
>>31338540Man. Bitches be falling all over for him AND monsters don't randomly attack him when he tries to sleep.Ceru needs to hit up Bruise as soon as she gets back so she can get swole too.
>>31338553So, what? Should we ask Kurojo to drag his feathery nutsack across our face before we go anywhere?Seriously. This fucker gets less encounters when he's going without repeltech. Probably helps that he go fast jumps like he's in Naruto or something, but come on.

“The return path will be more dangerous at night. We'll camp out here and return at the break of dawn.”You reason as you lead Hana at least partway around the mountain, minding and feeling for where you've already been under the light of the pallid moon.“We will be alright out here?” Hana worries, her waves anxious and fearful. “This is my first time sleeping outside of the village.”“We will be fine so long as we keep watch. If it's not a rathas or an airmd I'll strike it down. You have nothing to fear Hana.” You tell the young lady as the two of you find a spot that's just wide enough to offer the ability to maneuver and still a bit too high to be troubled by the boulders after they've hiked their way back up the mountain-side.The the moon and stars as your sky you drift off into a light sleep with Hana at your back, your thoughts leaning toward how the strangers must be feeling right now...Where are they from anyway?And what are those strange tools they have... What could they mean?You doze off for a moment, glimpses of your failure permeating your dreams. The White One coughing up blood and Kajani following suit before the whole village suffers from the Red Tide.You thrash about in your sleep...It'd be all your fault for bringing them there. All your fault if everyone was hurt... You hear a growling at the edge of your hearing, forcing your eyes open in the dead of night as a set of jaws launch themselves at you, only to be met with a swift uppercut and palm strike to force the monster away as you jump to your feet, tapping Hana hard to awaken her, and finding her already awake and nothing away another of the things.You both stand, assuming a combat stance, yours far more practiced than hers, yet without her necessarily falling short of you.
You feel the enemy all around you, their reptilian eyes glinting in the darkness with slight hisses here and there as they communicate with each other. The failed attack has made them wary and your back-to back setup makes them circle, ignoring the allies that've been clobbered into submission.You've seen these before, heard of them before: Jaggals.They never attack from the front, never go for a fair fight, and never attack something with fewer numbers. They don't shoot or have an special abilities other than the fact that they like their biting more than anything and they're tenacious enough to wear down almost anything.It's said that the only way to get one to let go after it's bitten is to cut its head off or break the jaw.These feathered little raptors must've been waiting for the two of you to try to sleep and attacked when it knew the two of you were out.There are as many as twelve by your count. If you reduce their numbers they should get scared off.You feel that they're more drawn to Hana, whether it is the weakness they sense in her or the strength that they sense in you, they regard her more shrewdly.>Stamina 50%> Fight them head on in close combat to end them quickly.> Try picking them off with Vacuum Wave.> Hold ground and strike them as they attack to keep Hana safe.> (Other)

Wait for them to attack, then use Vacuum Wave on the attackers in quick succession. Their focus seems to be on Hana, so that together with Kurojo's wave sensing ability, we'll be able to predict their attacks better than if we just rushed in.

>>31338668Hm...so I reckon we just avoided getting crit in our sleep.No clue what is up with these guys,but if all they have are bite attacks, I bet they're not so good at avoiding special.>Vacuum Wave, but protect Hana.We brought her along, after all.
>>31338668>>[x] Try picking them off with Vacuum Wave.>[x] Hold ground and strike them as they attack to keep Hana safe.Safety in numbers. Letting ourselves get separated from Hana is exactly how these things are trying to bring us down.
>>31338689which is good for us. Evil is weak to fighting.>>31338668supporting this >>31338695
>>31338668Hold ground to conserve energy.We should be able to.see through their base wickedness.
>>31338668I'll thrown my hat in here too>>31338695>>31338707
>>31338695Das is just a dream you silly billy.
Unrelated, but would Quick Attack evolve into Extremespeed?And would Vacuum Wave evolve into Aura Sphere?Because I want to learn both.

>>31338759>So this is not an opposed roll? What makes this different from the earlier encounter we had with the pack?No leader.
>>31338759>What makes this different from the earlier encounter we had with the pack?I'm referring to the electric monsters last thread, to be clear.Also, looks like Kurojo's getting a confidence booster this night. I wonder if he'll begin to think of "THE WHITE ONE" as a good omen for himself?
>>31338769Heh.These guys are a bunch of pussy cats.Let's fuck their shit up, Professor.
>>31338668Great Jaggi lord of the weak.> Hold ground and strike them as they attack to keep Hana safe.
>>31338769Ah, I see.So then, I assume that when fighting a monster group (that is, monsters that are meant to be encountered as a group), we'll just have to roll over some arbitrary DC to beat them and we'll only have to fight an extended battle with opposing rolls if they have some sort of leader to direct them?
>>31338742>Stamina: 50%Multiple Vacuum waves x3>Stamina 41%>>31338796Aye, unless they're monsters that naturally have a bit higher of an intelligence. I'm writing most of them off as somewhat above average animal intellect when considering animals.
>>31338761Yeah. Vwave would be baller for Ceru.>+4 (soon to be +5) Ing>+whatever Wav>+2(or more) Rocket>+whatever rank Vwave is>+whatever rank gunner we haveSo if we were to buy it as our next thing, assuming rank 1 in both Wav and Vwave, and assuming that we somehow don't rank up Ing before then, it would always have +8 against neutral targets AND priority.
>>31338819>implying we don't already have a Wav statIt's probably just not shown because it's at -50 or something.
>>31338819Vacuum Wave would be penalized by Snarl, right?
>>31338883Yeah. I think anything that uses Ing as its stat takes penalty from Snarl.Actually, HEY PROF. Icy Wind by itself uses Ing and not Ten, right? All special attacks use Ing, right?
>>31338895>Ing and not Ten, right? All special attacks use Ing, right?Yep. Fixing for future.
>>31338895We HAVE been using Ing for those moves for a while now.I'm not sure when Ten is used, however.
>>31338916Physical moves and staying awake and being a badass after surgery.We're gonna be making Ten rolls to try to stand up after they rub the flower on us, because when has Ceru ever listened to doctor's orders and stayed in bed?
>>31338914You may want to add it in the pastebin. Ten for physical moves and Ing for special moves. What would status moves get a bonus towards, though?
>>31338876We should get some reward in form of the island training routine tbh. A funky new technique would be perfect.
>>31338926I think it depends on the status move. Probably would use Ing. Some of the weirder ones like Attract might use Charm.
>>31338940Snarl, upon checking, is a Special move and not a Status move.
Standing your ground, you watch and wait for the things to commit to a strike, unwilling to distract yourself by throwing the first blow. They'd just take advantage of your opening to attack.No... You'll wait.Keeping your eye keen upon them, they circle around, waiting watching.The odd one among them comes forward just a bit to snap its jaws and goad you into lashing out against them. But you won't make that mistake, not on their terms. You begin to mock them, replicating the sounds that they make and they seem to grow agitated by it, their feathers visibly puffing up along with their frills to try making themselves look tougher.You emulate the same with your crest, bringing your red feathers up and repeating the crude sounds that they make, eventually getting one to lunge out to receive a sudden smash to its face, sending it tumbling down the side of the mountain.This causes all distortion to break loose as Hana lashes out at one that's goaded her, forcing you to turn around and deliver a quick vacuum wave to strike the thing before it gets a chance to bite her. Right after, you turn around spinning out a kick to send another tumbling and alternating right back to nail another one going after Hana as she's beating one bloody.You send out a vacuum wave to the front, crashing in powerfully with another soon-to-be-limp body, and strike another coming for your behind square in the chest, causing its frail bones to crumble under your might.The things lose their nerve after losing half their number and quickly slink away into one of the caverns, only to quickly run back out again with little white things trying to get all on them.You'd laugh if they hadn't just been trying to eat you for dinner.Actually, that just makes it funnier.
You clasp your hand around Hana's and pull her off of a bloody corpse,”First blood?”“Not the first.”“Could've done better. Good job though.”She only nods and the two of you resume a back-to back slumber.Morning comes and it's time to go back. Light is a blessing if ever you knew one.>End Thread.
Good job gents
>>31339004Archived, Prof.suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/31330421It's been a good thread. Will we still be with Kurojo next time or are we segueing back to Ceru?Also, is this image in any way reminiscent of the Distortion World?
>>31339004Are we going to have to continue birdventures on Thursday or what?
>>31339004Cool ending. I guess next thread will probably begin with Ceru waking up to a mouth full of herbs or something.The mental image of Kurojo taunting the critters is pretty funny too.
>>31339004Yo Prof when KJ gonna tap that tight loli bird pussy?He'll show her his first blood if u no waht I'm sayin
>>31338990Sorry Im on phone .Which should apply ing to Snarl. Not intuitive.
>>31338992>only to quickly run back out again with little white things trying to get all on them.All over them, you mean?Any guesses on what these things could have been?
>>31339034What do you mean by intuitive? There's no such stat.>>31339032Haha, what the hell anon.
>>31338990>Snarl, upon checking, is a Special move>Snarl deals damageHuh. I have no clue why I thought it only reduced Spec. Attack.Well now it just got weird. Japanese name is Bark-Out. I'll have to consider this.>>31339032>his first bloodUh...>>31339016>Will we still be with Kurojo next time or are we segueing back to Ceru?Good time as any to switch back to Ceru unless you guys want more Kahkori vision.And yes.

>>31339053I like that vacant look.
>>31339066>Snarl deals damage....how...Is...is it a sonic attack...?Does it rot their brain...?God damn it I am confused.
>>31339066>Just checked>Snarl is basically Dark type Icy Wind that reduces spatk instead of speed.
>>31339066Yeah, it's a sonic type attack.Come to think of it, that would have been useful on the nar-kage.
>>31339081>vacant lookIt's honestly how I imagine your face looks when talk of birdpussy, or pregnant rape monsters erupt in thread.It really helps sooth me.
>>31339066So is Snarl gonna do damage now or are we just gonna keep it as is or what?
>>31339066Prof, how old is Kurojo anyway? At the youngest, I thought maybe around Bruise or Lilac's age, and at the oldest, Kitty's.He's at least large enough to carry Ceru on his back, anyway, so I'm assuming he has close to an adult's body.
>>31339093>pregnant rape monstersWhosawhatsnow?
>>31338992oh khezu whelps, aren't you adorable little monsters?
>>31339095Eh. Honestly I'd prefer Snarl to just be a stat reducing move. It's good as a combo move.>>31339100Sorry, I mixed those words up. tired.>Pregnant Ceru getting raped by monsters.

Hey, what's Crossroad Killing based on again? Night Slash?
>>31339084>...how...>Is...is it a sonic attack...?>Does it rot their brain...?What's worse is that the base power is higher than tackle or scratch. That's upsetting.What if it's SO LOUD...Eh.>>31339167Really should've. But it wasn't going to come up as an issue unless you guys decided to fight Rathas.In which case it would've been hard and near-suicide regardless,Also Sirplane just as well can make the ground rumble a bit.>>31339172>>31339032You said his first blood. As in he'll be the one bleeding.Also: Hana is considered a young woman so she's 14, and an adult by Kahkori standards so long as she's learned and comes into a role.>>31339225Yeah.
>>31339232>You said his first blood. As in he'll be the one bleeding.Or it'd be his first time making a girl bleWHY ARE WE TALKING ABOUT THIS.
>>31339232>What if it's SO LOUD...>Eh.It's just a weaker version of Dark Pulse just like Vacuum Wave is a weaker version of Aura Sphere or Icy Wind is a weaker Blizzard. Not sure what's so confusing about it.
>>31339232What's 12 by Khakori standards?
>>31339232The explanation of Snarl upsets me too. It's sorta lame. But like >>31339246 says, it's effectively meant as a weaker version of 'x'.Shame. Wanna house rule Snarl? I like the idea of it just being...ya know...a snarl.
>>31339242this is why we have vacant look
>>31339257What's Ceru done so far in her interactions with the Kahkori?
>>31339246If we learn Aura, think that'd open up Snarl becoming Dark Pulse with enough ranks?
>>31339265I'll support this

>>31339291>Get splattered with mankey shitThat crap better have been washed off by now, I swear.We're gonna murder that little mankey.
>>31339291You forgot>be fattest person on island
>>31339299>Kahkori don't even know what fat is.
I can't wait for Crytten to evolve. I want my matured freezer array giving better than +1
>>31339265I see snarl as basically just throwing out insults and what not to do psychological damage. Though beyond espers I don't see how that would translate to actual damage.That said I'm okay with the idea of Snarl just being a snarl.
>>31339299The Tropius are probably fatter.
>>31339306They're a race of bodybuilders, Prof. Come on.
How were they rubbing that stuff on Marine's belly if she has full-frontal shell armor?
>>31339310Younger ones were mentioned earlier on.The old ones don't fly anymore. It's the young ones that migrate.Still... No Rathas mount. Shame.>>31339322You wanna hear it?Really wanna hear it?Theydid it to her back because I forgot about her anatomy.Need to write more Marine, I swear.
>>31339275Reading the wiki entry of some of the moves...just thought I'd say>Brine inflicts 135 power if enemy is at 50% hp.>Bubblebeam can lower enemy speed>Aurora Beam lowers enemy attack>Ice Fang has a chance to freeze AND a chance to flinch. Only move that has a freeze chance so far.>Bite has a pretty high chance of flinch>Feint Attack is unaffected by stat lowering moves>Fake Tears lowers special defense by two stagesJust thought I'd mention it.I suddenly want Ice Fang
>>31339339>Arms, shoulders, and front. She has less protection at the back due to Always facing her enemy/ Pewter style.This is where you mentioned all her shells were placed.Maybe just say the shell on her front is more like a breastplate to leave her belly exposed?
>>31339339>Still... No Rathas mount. Shame.I thought that it was something that could still happen. Those eggs aren't going to hatch in the next couple days or something, are they?They totally are...
>>31339339>Being sad for us we don't get a drago mount.You know. I think you're more upset about that then we are Professor.Ya know we eventually will be able to fly ourselves, right?I mean, sure, we gotta go eat dragon flesh, but that's details.>Forgetting about glorious turtle shellLul. I really look forward to more time with Marine. Like. I want to hang out with her more in general.
>>31339339>Still... No Rathas mount. Shame.Did you even think that was ever a valid option? You keep going back and forth on this, acting as if it was actually a reasonable thing to do and then stating it would have been suicidal. Stick to one thing, Prof, don't be a prick about it.
>>31339353>to leave her belly exposed?That works.FFFF another of my fetishes is midriff.
>>31339345>I suddenly want Ice FangIt would get the +3 from the Fuschia h2h training, though that would only really be making up for the Ten stat being lower than Ing for Ceru. It also puts her in close range, so it's kinda sketchy really. I'd rather stay at range and spam guns.
>>31339373Aww. I always imagined her as having some kind of pseudo bomb squad suit thing made of turtle shell on her front.
>>31339345My only gripe with Ice Fang is that the amber bits are on Ceru's claws. Can we make some kind of move similar to Ice Fang with that?>>31339339Look, as awesome as they are, I very much doubt that rathalos are easy to domesticate.We'll all at least need to be buffed up from glorius Kahkori training and wearing Nar-kage coats before we attempt that.
>>31339375Oh yeah, I want to stay at range too...but...well...Ice Fang!Ya know. Cuz it's in our hands instead of teeth!I thought it was cool...I hope we can get it, just like Psybeam, if nothing more then a contingency. Look how well that worked out with Psybeam right?>>31339373Hey.Me too.We need a bathing suit scene when Marine and Ceru are older. Should be amusing.
>>31339364Suicidal or not, it's not like I'd TK you guys.>>31339390Would've been Jojo's responsibility.>>31339375Said it before- Ceru would use Ice fang with her hands.
>>31339390Just combine Crossroad Killing with our Ice Shard ability; create longer, stronger claws made out of ice. There, a new move that crits, freezes, and flinches all at once.
>>31339396>I hope we can get it, just like Psybeam, if nothing more then a contingency. Look how well that worked out with Psybeam right?Only because Psybeam adds type coverage. We already have Icy Wind, Icicle Gun, Frost Breath, Ice Ball (kinda), and Ice Shards. What's Ice Fang going to add, really?
>>31339396>We need a bathing suit scene when Marine and Ceru are older. Should be amusing.Ideas for writers!Marine has a shell top, so she goes around wearing nothing there. And you can ever so slightly see her breasts bulge out from the openings below and above the shell.
>>31339404>Said it before- Ceru would use Ice fang with her hands.I know. That's why I said>It would get the +3 from the Fuschia h2h trainingI still don't like the idea of getting close when we can skewer the target at range.
>>31339404>Not like I'd TK you guysPfff.I don't believe you.ESPECIALLY not when we're playing as the sort-of-expendable NPC guys. And his gf.But for real. We might have to go for one, eventually. I see no other way off this island that makes any sense, honestly.>Ice FangDude, just change the name in the pastebin, unofficially (read, in quotes) to 'Ice Claw'.Simple fix.
>>31339411Freeze chance!And an ice melee move, if we need to use one!Nothing? Really?Sigh.
>>31339404So, Prof, what are the chances of us getting any items crafted from the Nar-kage's body?>>31339420Well, Hana would probably have been in danger of dying, but Kurojo's got plot immunity since this was just an optional interlude; his success at bringing back the flower was already predetermined, it was just how long it'd take and how he'd go about it that mattered.
>>31339404>Would've been Jojo's responsibility.that would be bad. We obviously want rathalos mounts to be replicatable, so we steal/catch a breeding pair and document how to train them. Can't do that if someone else does the raising.>Said it before- Ceru would use Ice fang with her hands.forgot about that. Now I remember why Ceru is currently a killshot build at all ranges. I agree that you should just rename it to 'Ice Claw' or 'Ice Fang-Claw variant'
>>31339429Reminds me.I'm changing Crytten's Frostbite ability to "decreasing speed" with contact moves.
>>31339433>Buying into plot immunityMan, I can't do that. That ruins the fun of it for me.
>>31339429Frost Breath is already a melee range Ice move that has armor penetration to freeze the target's organs and it has enhanced crit chance. I'd much rather use that as our Ice move if we have to get into melee range.
>>31339449>I'm changing Crytten's Frostbite ability to "decreasing speed" with contact moves.Frostbite? What's this? I saw no mention of this in the pastebin.
>>31339449>Changing Crytten's Frostbite ability...we have a Frostbite ability?I thought we had Ice Body, Hydration, and Snow Veil?
>>31339449I don't think it's even listed in the pastebin anymore.>>31339457>enhanced crit chanceenhanced crit damage*
>>31339451It's called reasoning ability.
>>31339465It gets Frostbite next evolution.
>>31339457Sigh...Fine anon, you win.I'll just go enjoy my snow ninja fantasies elsewhere.
>>31339465Ya forgot Sniper and Thick Fat.
>>31339472Ah, you should have said Bliger then.
>>31339480I shoulda.In any case, G'night.See you guys Thursday for your regularly scheduled viewing.
>>31339457It's not actually melee range. More like...mid range. Flamethrower range. Spear head range.>>31339495Sleep well, Prof. Looking forward to next time.
>>31339495Goodnight Professor.Thanks for not passing out.
>>31339474Sorry, man. I think Ice Fang would be cool, but it's just not really worth it. Already got stuff better for the purpose and it's not like we use it as the first choice of attack anyway. Maybe we'll see another ranger that uses it to good effect.I bet those wendigo OCmons will whenever we get around to seeing them.
>>31339501It's more like the red forcegun thing in Jak II, except icy instead of pushy.And flamethrowers shoot really far.
>>31339507>>31339474Guys, we can still get it by proxy. Just combine Crossroad Killing with our Ice Shard ability. Basically the same thing.
>>31339522It'd probably also use Ing instead of Ten because it's an attack combo. Which is good, since our Ing is better.
>>31339466>>enhanced crit chance>enhanced crit damage*No, it always crits. The enhanced damage is from Sniper.
>Frost Breath is 60BP but always crits, making it the equivalent of a 135BP move than never crits but always ignores defense>Blizzard is 110BPJust sayin.
>>31339522The focus of that is damage, but I think the main point of Ice Fang that Frost Breath doesn't have is a chance to flinch without losing the freeze
>>31339495In case you're not gone yet, will evolving Dewgong result in the horn giving a +modifier to Ice?
>>31339571Yeah, that's what I'm saying; we'll create ice shards directly over how claws to cause freezing and flinching.
>>31339565Blizzard targets an area and would put our Snow Veil's camouflage ability to use in more areas.
>>31339607Point.But FB is still going to be more raw damage vs single targets and on top of that Blizzard is quite a ways off while we have FB right now.Still want to get Blizzard, just saying words.
>>31339586>The user bites with cold-infused fangs.It's up to Ygg how icicles compare to cold-infused amber claws, but the way I see it:Icicles shatter more easily, and so can't impact enough force to flinch.ORIcicles don't transfer heat as fast, so while overall temperature decrease is the same, there is less chance of freezing
>>31339629In that case, isn't it just the point of removing the ice shards and just conducting the coldness through the claws directly? There's no problem at all in that case.Perhaps just change the combination to forming the ice shards AFTER the claws have been embedded in the target. Cause even more damage that way.
>>31339645>Jam claws into target>Ice ShardsEnjoy your slush blood
>>31339658I wouldn't be surprised if Bligers made that as a treat for their Crytten children.
>>31339645So a normal claw attack followed by Ice Shards?Sounds interesting, as it veers a little bit away from standard pokemon moves.But that might mean that accuracy is based solely on H2H, with a bonus from Ice Shards, to make up for not needing points.>>31339671zoo keepers give tigers bloodcicles as treats
>>31339686Unless you mean Crossroad Killing, where I would say that that move does NOT attempt to embed the claws in the body, and so does not apply.
>>31339700Don't have to embed them in the body to get them in the body long enough to use Ice Shard.
>>31339686>zoo keepers give tigers bloodcicles as treatsAhaha, oh wow. Really? If we ever get stuck in the evil state after killing something, we have to definitely do that.Anyway, we're not trained for claw attacks, so it wouldn't be that effective. The idea was to combine it with Crossroad Killing, since that move automatically targets an opponent's vitals.>>31339700We could modify the move, then. Instead of quickly moving past the opponent, we embed our claws into them instead. Sink them in real deep while we freeze the monster from the inside. Maybe attack them from their backs or right on top of them so that they can't retaliate.I'm sure it'd work out fine. This is the kind of flexibility in thinking that helped us think up of Icicle Guns and of infusing the Icicle Guns with Psybeam radiation to create an area that confuses people who enter it (which Prof actually OK'ed before so we know it's possible).
>>31339711>>31339727So a flaming sword, only with cold? Done right, it would stop blood loss. Done the OTHER right, and we make bloodcicles that pierce them from the inside.I like it.
>>31339727>Anyway, we're not trained for claw attacks, so it wouldn't be that effective.We sorta are. We're trained in Fuschia-style hand to hand combat, meaning that we get the same bonuses for mauling someone with our claws that we would for shooting them with an Icicle. Well, almost. We would if our Ten stat was higher, but that's not a matter of training.
>>31339744>Done right, it would stop blood loss.Most things don't have Ice Body. It would be really painful and then once it starts to melt, it could result in ice embolism causing death.
>>31339750Oh, does our Fuchsia CQC gives us a general bonus to all melee attacks, I think. But that's all we'd get. If we do it with a move, then we'd get the CQC training bonus on top of that move's rank.
>>31339761True. Still, the cold would work on the cut-off limb, while the stump would stop blood-loss long enough to get a bandage on.Now if there was only a way to UNfreeze it safely...
>>31339761So basically, it'd be an assassination move. Our Coup de Grâce. That's pretty cool, actually, although I doubt it's something we'll want to use when capturing a monster for implants.
>>31339773Crossroad killing goes for the vitals. It wouldn't be cutting off limbs unless it misses.
>>31339773We could definitely use our ice abilities on other rangers, but we wouldn't need to use Ice Shard or Crossroad Killing or whatever compound move that would result from combining them.
>>31339782Ceru really isn't a capture ranger. If she's on a capture mission, it will likely be in a command position with people like Sanna operating under her. If Ceru does anything, it will be spamming Icy Wind a bit to slow the target down before it gets Sleep Powder'd/Stun Spore'd.
>>31339788So there's absolutely no reason whatsoever to use this combo for healing. right.
>>31339804If you want a healing move, level up Psybeam until it becomes Heal Pulse. Ceru's Ice is worthless for healing. All it can do is stop her own wounds from getting worse.
>>31339797Frost Breath is an effective way to only destroy some organs while preserving the rest.If it's a mission where capturing the entire monster is not vital, she can still act directly.
>>31339797Her ice has been noted as being useful for capture operations. In fact, the only ranger above her in that skill department is Sanna.I'm not saying we specialize in capture like her, but it's not like we'll always have her around for a capture operation (especially if the mission may not have started out with the objective of capturing a target).
>>31339814>In fact, the only ranger above her in that skill department is Sanna.I'm speaking in terms of the Rocket cadets, of course.Anyway, you guys wanna brainstorm up some more moves? We'll be at the village for a while and we'll probably return to Ceru by next session. Gotta spend that exp on something.
>>31339824>Gotta spend that exp on something.Oops, forgot that you don't need to spend exp on creating combo moves.
>>31339824Still on page 9, so sure.We need tail moves. Note that the tail will get progressively tougher as the evolutions make their rounds.
>>31339824Well, the xp would be best spent on things we can only learn here.So dumping it all into Aura techniques seems like the best option.
>>31339836That's only for learning moves. After that, I think we can raise them up with training even outside of the gym. Although I think for more specific things, like Fuchsia's CQC training, the gym is required.Although in that case, we'll want to spend a number of our exp to get the moves we can learn from the Kahkori. They know how to write, though. So they should have writing material. Maybe we could teach them our own alphabet and language so that they can write down a manual of their techniques for us (that is, once they trust us enough).
>>31339833>We need tail moves. Note that the tail will get progressively tougher as the evolutions make their rounds.We don't have any tail moves available to us right now. Maybe once our Crytten implant evolves, we'll get Iron Tail? What other tail moves do you think would fit for us?
>>31339901I kind of meant thinking up of original moves to use the tail with.
>>31339901The best "tail move" we could possible probably not be able to get would be Tail Glow.
>>31339921Huh. I'm not even sure if we're allowed to create a move instead of just combining techniques.Although, since we can already freeze our tail to attack, we should theoretically be able to perform tail moves already.Aside from getting more damaging once our tail evolves, I think it'd be an excellent defense for our back when we need to run away. Maybe lash our tail around to deflect projectiles and deter people from approaching?
Nar-Kago moves:-use tail spikes as ammo for a projectile steel/poison attack-convert armblades into wolverine claws for steel type meleeWebbed hands:We got good surface area for an Ice Slapstill thinking
>>31339955>Maybe lash our tail around to deflect projectiles and deter people from approaching?sounds good. we should suggest that
If we had gotten the infinite water thing, think it would have been possible to do that "skating on ice that you create in front of you" thing that Frozone does?
When Ceru's tail gets giant, she could bring it up between her legs and use it as a third limb to hug people from below and press them into her in addition to using her arms.
>>31339988It would be a big drain on stamina, though.
>>31339996Why would it need to go below her legs? Why couldn't she curl it up from the side? Isn't that how it's traditionally done?
>>31339997If we're already doing a constant upkeep on high-level Icy Wind anyway, does it really matter? It's added mobility for free taking advantage of the constant cold we'd be making already for debuffing.
Horn Tackle+Water Gun for increased speedAquabatics+Ice Shards make footholds underwater
>>31340003You don't wear harnesses just around your waist, you gotta have some under components for the most secure fit.Same thing with incorporating tails into hugs.
>>31340018I don't think Icy Wind freezes water THAT fast, even at high levels. Certainly not running/skating speed anyway. You need the water to be thick enough to support Ceru's weight
>>31340023>Aquabatics+Ice Shards make footholds underwaterWhat do you think Aquabatics is? It's literally just dancing around in the water. Prof hasn't said exactly what it is, but he said something about it being "kinda like Swagger"
>>31340046It'd result in hypnotic dancing, I think. Like our version of snake charming for underwater creatures.
>>31340046Fine, Aquatic Combat+Aquabatics+Ice ShardsAquatic Combat for properly using the footholdsAquabatics because interchanging normal swimming with bursts of speed from the footholds can be confusing.
>>31340072Aquatic Combat isn't a move. It's a passive bonus.
>>31340082yes. what's the problem?making random pieces of ice in the water isn't helpful unless you know how to take advantage of the new terrain
>>31340097Just call it what it is: Using Ice Shards in the water. There's no point in calling it a "combo move" when half of it isn't even a move.
>>31340118It's not so much a move as something inventive we can do with the powers that we have.
Hey, here's a question: Pokemon can learn interesting moves via breeding. Does this apply to Rangers? And more importantly, what implants does Ceru's mother have?
>>31340023I'm looking forward to when we get further into the game. Lock On+ Sheer Cold. It'll take two turns to set up and will require 40% stamina, but's an instant takedown. I think my favourite thing about that is that it actually seems balanced, so we've got good odds of it making it into the game.
>>31340191Race and M-virus count are inherited from the mother.This was the exact answer Prof gave in the last thread, if you want to check it out.>Pokemon inherit moves from their dads.Take it as you will.
>>31340191Probably a Lapras and Dewgong.
>>31340209>Our dad is unnamed so that Proff can throw some randomass (but awesome) moves at us and write it off as being from dad.
>>31340209Ah yeah. Forgot about that. Too used to breeding with dittos. ....THAT'S WHY GIOVANNI IS A MEMETIC SEX GOD!
>>31340209>Race ... [is] inherited from the mother.So the Nar-kage fucking wouldn't even make kittens, it'd make human babies with mild cat features?
>>31340224>>31340228OUR FATHER IS GIOVANNI!!!!!Lorelei was a Rocket cadet when she was young.Giovanni impregnated her.
>>31340236>Cerulean learned Psystrike
>>31340232Yeah.OH MAN SOMEONE TELL SMUT ANON QUICKLY. I need verisimilitude in my fictional smut, after all!
>>31340236With the comments made here: >>31340232>>Race ... [is] inherited from the mother.>So the Nar-kage fucking wouldn't even make kittens, it'd make human babies with mild cat features?I'd say there are a few possible answers for why we don't know who our dad is. Teen pregnancy with a commanding officer is actually like the third most tame option.Zapdos is our father
>>31340258Nah. If it was a pokemon, we'd still have some mild features. Remember that Ni'rena had a human mom
Waaaiiiiit a second. Didn't we use Nasty Plot around Kurojo? Shouldn't he have felt some kind of change with that?Nah. I'ma guess he was focusing too hard on not getting gutted by the nar-kage.
>>31340401Let's just say that. But be sure to raise it up to Prof next time, since he might have missed that.
