You are Shax Bonemurder, Raid Leader! You just led a raid on a giant temple. You're not sure why, but all the worshippers in it were apparently fake? Some sort of conspiracy! At the top of the place, the ritual you were sent to stop had some kind of coffin with a doll boy in it. This doll boy is currently being hefted by Fetidclaw as you get the heck out of the temple.Oh, right. Most of Utalaga is now on fire, too. No loss there.>Shax's Stuff!

At least the ones we know of. Let's go to the next one on the map. It is near the border of another country, but it isn't too far away, and more or less on the way back.>This continent sucks.

The quest for more power is too stronk of a temptation. Very well! Let's get to it.
> ) RISING METEOR'S FINAL JUDGEMENT PENANCE SLASH - The power of your comrades, lost and present encourage your every move. You are the boss. You decide fate on the battlefield. Only you can wield this colossal blade for the justice you believe in! - Requires 8 points in this tree to be purchased.We're probably going to get the sword saint tree next level up but I just thought I'd point out we've got enough skills to purchase the super move now.
Looking back at the smoking mess of Utalaga, you can't help but wonder what the heck was up with this place? Weird zombie masses, chained up blood monsters, gold and illusions everywhere? Well, whatever. It ain't your country, no matter how crazy it is. Time to move on."Hey Fetid, it's time to move to the next altar! Where'd you say the closest one was, anyway?" It's best to leave the raging fires and questions behind you.The orc woman has a map in one hand and a doll boy over her shoulder in the other. "If that lizard guy's map is to be trusted, and there is no reason it shouldn't be as far as I can tell, it's probably about two or three days in this direction." That's not so bad."Is this country super small or somethin'?" It is pretty weird that you're able to get around so quick over here.Brokagh shrugs and answer for Fetid, "I think this is just a smaller country. They exist. If they had a bunch of those zombie hulks in their military, I can see why. Necromancy appears to be the name of the game in conflicts over here." What a bunch of weirdos.It's slow going for several hours, and the sun starts setting. You'd think the stars would be harder to see from all the smoke, but they shine clearly in the night sky.
Suddenly, a loud crash is heard. Charging towards your party are three humongous grey humanoids, clad in loinclothes, sashes glittering with golden coins, and each with a golden mask bearing the likeness of a different animal. The monster with the leopard mask holds in his hands a shotel, the cobra mask holds a three tailed whip, the ends of which hold wicked looking barbs, and the final hulking creature has the mask of a hound, and holds in its hands a savage crescent bladed axe.Standing behind them is a young woman with a feathered headdress, and in her hands a massive bronze hexagonal club, whose panels are studded with gold. "Heretics! In the name of the Blood Queen Venica, I demand your lives and the surrender of the god vessel!">There are two stars of calamity! Among the three stars that control fate, the star of destiny shines brightest! When two Oversized Weapon Users meet, these stars will glow with a fiercesome might!Oh jeez, they must have expected you'd be leaving for the border. What's the plan boss?>Defense! Everyone fall back and form a formation to meet their charge!>Scatter! We got the numbers, we'll catch them from all sides!>Counter charge! We got the moxie for this.>Something else.
>>31848979>Scatter! We got the numbers, we'll catch them from all sides!Get the super turtles and crystal spear ready.She isn't as cool as Axe girl.
>>31848979>Scatter! We got the numbers, we'll catch them from all sides!
>>31848979>Scatter! We got the numbers, we'll catch them from all sides!Meeting the charge of three giants doesn't sound like it will end well. Hey bearbreth is good at nature stuff right? Think he can conjure up some vines to trip the giant dudes?
>>31848979>Astral Pearl>Crystal Spear>???>Profit
>>31849042He could. Allonces can also trip people up.We should get those two to immobolize the giants while the rest of the party attacks and we take on the Oversized Weapon user.
>>31848979>Heretics! In the name of the Blood Queen Venica, I demand your lives and the surrender of the god vessel!Haha what. Nobody's gonna kill themselves because you asked them to. You're meant to say that they can live if they surrender. Whether you mean it or not.>Something elseAsk what the god vessel is. Maybe we can find out what the fuck we're doing. Or get bored and surprise attack when she's talking.
>>31848979What's the environment around us like? We may be able to use it to our advantage.
>>31848979>There are two stars of calamity! Among the three stars that control fate, the star of destiny shines brightest! When two Oversized Weapon Users meet, these stars will glow with a fiercesome might!wut now?>Something else."What now?"
>>31848979>Defense! Everyone fall back and form a formation to meet their charge!Eh
>>31849072The god vessel is probably the doll boy.
>>31849072She ain't waiting for you to hold your hands up.>>31849076It's sorta jungley.>>31849090Prepare yourself!
>>31848979Lets summon some turtles here. They can stick around doing stuff after we leave.
Thanks for using my image as the op. I wasn't there last thread beause of reasons, so this relates to the one before it. I think I'm getting the hang of this value thing.
>>31849090It happened when we fought Axe Girl too.Basically, after this fight and we'll get a chance to decide what the next stage of the plot will be like how we chose being dragon lady's champion.
>>31849096Probably. That doesn't answer the question of what it is.
>>31849121What? What's going on there?
>>31849131A vessel for a god. Sounds pretty straightforward to me.Probably trying to put blood guy's soul in it so they could have a puppet god to control or something.
>>31849121Haha, it is just that that particular picture cracks me up every time I see it.Anyway, got some idea of what you folks wanna do. Writing!
>>31849131A vessel for a god
>>31849106Is the jungle flammable? Fire is usually to our advantage.When we start fighting the other OWW we can probably cut the trees to fall on her, and they might get in the way of her swings.
>>31849182Wouldn't the trees also get in the way of our swings?
>>31849202To a degree, but we're really good at cutting through things, and she has a blunt weapon.I think it'll be worse for her than us.
>>31849257So she is really good at smashing through things. I don't see it making much difference.
>>31848979What the hell is a hexagonal club? How does that even work?
>>31848516>>Let's get all the altars! At least the ones we know of. Let's go to the next one on the map. It is near the border of another country, but it isn't too far away, and more or less on the way back
>>31849307a club that is hexagonal instead of cylindrical.
>>31848979>I'm not Heretic, I'm Shax!
>>31849307Sorta like this.
>>31849373AhThose are called Tetsubo
"Bearbreath!" You shout, as the three oversized humans rush at you. The most valuable minion seems to know what you're thinking, and starts chanting as your party disperses to avoid the giants. Moments later, vines lance out in all directions in an attempt to bind them.The headdress girl slams the tip of her club into the ground, and from it cracks shoot out, releasing scrabbling clawed hands that grasp at the feet of you and your companions, tripping you up. She lifts up a tanned hand, and the war paint on her face glows a bright red. Three red hooks shoot out into the backs of her servants. Their muscles bulge grotesquely, and they snap out of the vines. Oh, crap. she's trouble. Time to deal with her!You dash towards the girl with feathers in her hair, smashing various trees and exposed roots out of the way. "Allonces! Try to tie them up!" The sound of someone crying out in pain is heard behind you."What?! All of them?" Despite her protests, you hear the distinctly ghostly noise of chains clanking about as you close the distance to the club-wielding girl, as your minions fight it out behind you.A red mist spreads out from beneath her, and your lungs start to burn. She's tricky!What's the plan boss?>Offense>Back off>Write in
>>31849440>offenseWe didn't get the power to cut through anything just to defend
>>31849440>OffenseGeek the mage first.Jump up, take a deep breath when we're out of the mist, and then sideways helicopter spin down towards her.
>>31849373Gonna need that un christian censored..
There's a total of three altars right? How much will they power us up?
>>31849440>>OffenseSpend a tide point on cutting?
>>31849440>OffenseAs if we'd give her time to cast more spells.
>>31849493She's not a static object, what if she dodges? I'd rather spend a Tidal Point on the new skill that gives us a really high defense bonus. We could go all out without having to worry about our guard.
Despite the risk, you'll go blazing in!Gimme a d20 roll, then. If you're so great?!
Rolled 18>>31849526Of course. We're awesome.
>>31849440>OffenseIf she blocks an attack be ready to shank her with the short sword in the gut. Or wrap the grappling hook around her leg to trip her up if we have a chance.
Rolled 12>>31849547whoopsmy b
Rolled 4>>31849526Rolling>>31849547Oh common!
>>31849535>>31849543Aw man what great rolls...>>31849547MOTHERFUCKER!
>>31849547Probably want to spend a boss point he-Oh.Oh...
Do crits supercede for owq?
>>31849588Too late to spend a Tidal Point for Barnacle Blasted Battler?
>>31849547What points do we spend for this again? Do we have any?
This is just...
>>31849588Can we spend the boss point to negate this?
>>31849610We dont have any.
There goes our second Reincarnation charge. I hope we get a baby.please don't die bearbreath
>>31849605>>31849610We haven't gained a boss point in forever because no one tries to come up with clever or cool tactics.
>>31849588Uh. Uh. CHARACTER POINT! WE'LL BEFRIEND HER.
>>31849590Yep! Because crits are fun. Which is why its best of d20.>>31849604It'll get spent automatically.>>31849610If you had some!
>>31849632Can we spend our character point?
>>31849653You always can. If you'd like to spend it, let me know before I get much farther into writing this.
>>31849632How about spending a Tidal Point on Shrimply Amazing Breath Control to negate the lung burny thing? Is that possible?
>>31849667UhUhI'm in the grips of nat 1 panic so I will probably regret this decision later but yeah let's do it.
>>31849667I say we spend it to negate this critical. Forcing an ally is stupid anyway.
>>31849674That's a pretty decent idea.
>>31849373I was thinking more along the lines of this, but ok.>>31849547Oh boy. Seamom pls halp!
>>31849674Actually let's do that, that's a great idea
>>31849630>>31849653We'll probably survive, I don't want to blow the point if we don't have to. We still have pearls we can use.
>>31849667I don't want this bitch as an ally.I want her dead.Also, how do we get boss points anyway? How clever/fun/cool/whatever does a plan or idea have to be to count?
>>31849547PAH. A MINOR SETBACK.
>>31849667I say yes. We'll never use it anyway.
Shax will never live up to her name at this rate. Getting nat 1's in all the boss fights. ignoring powerups, not letting ominous and crazy vampires join our group...I still remember that 1 that was rolled with the fire elemental fight.
Making friends is always good, especially if they have huge weapons, it's common ground!
Rolled 1>>31849734Only minor? I'll have to roll more 1's
>>31849720We'll use it to negate the critical. Not diplomance her.
You guys are just overreacting to the fucking nat 1.Calm down and just roll with the punches. No use getting a stupid ally just because you can't deal with a small amount of failure.
Rolled 94100 and Shax is saved by vampire powers.
>>31849720>I don't want this bitch as an ally.>I want her dead.She has literally just appeared, why do you instantly feel this way?
Why spend the Character Point when we have other, more expendable resources to use? It's not as if we'll die to one crit fail anyways.
>>31849765Best show of the season.Which just shows how shit this season is.
>>31849667So we're spending the point to get rid of the crit right?
>>31849786It can't be used for that.There isn't a clear consensus on recruiting her, so I'm just writing as if it was a crit fail.You guys aren't dead! Don't panic.
>>31849769Because an insane blood cultist that was probably in cahoots with that vampire god we murdered does not sound like a decent ally or person at all.
>>31849717We don't want dead allies
>>31849796Oh okay, then don't. I thought we could negate the roll
>>31849720>Also, how do we get boss points anyway? How clever/fun/cool/whatever does a plan or idea have to be to count?I'm actually pretty curious about that.People brought up binding the giants with Allonces and Bearbreath, and then using the breath control to counteract whatever this chick was doing and those seem like pretty smart ideas. But apparently not Boss point smart?
>>31849798We don't quite know that yetWe should keep her alive so that we can interrogate her laterSomething stinks about this country and she probably knows something we don't
>>31849796I'M PANICKING I'M PANICKING OH GOD IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD
>>31849847Fine by me.Wanting her dead was a bit of hyperbole on my part. I just really don't want to be buddy-buddy with her.
>>31849847We're killing her then getting those altars then leaving.
You take a half step back out of the mist, and take a deep breath. You can breathe underwater! This won't be a big deal. You ready your weapon, and start a spinning charge. At the very least this should disperse the mist! Something grabs your ankle and you go sprawling to the ground, landing roughly on the ground. It's more of those lame hands! With a growl, you take out your holy sword and cut them up, as they try to hold you to the ground.As you start to go up, a sharp pain enters your back and you hear a loud cracking sound. With a groan you roll over, feeling weird bumps on your back. They're like... silty barnacles? You wonder how much of the blow they absorbed. >You're down two Tidal Points!You hop back up on your feet. And ready your weapon just in time to catch another savage blow with a clang. Your breath hisses in between your teeth before you realize you're still in that dumb red mist. Choking back a cough, you try to get your bearings. The girl is back on, taking a wild overhead swing. You gotta take her out, and fast! But how are you going to regain your momentum? You can barely defended against her magic and clubbing.Something moves in the corner of your eye. It's the giant with the axe! You narrowly avoid his attack as well. Oh, great. It's two on one. What the heck are your allies doing?What's the plan here?>>31849841They are good ideas! I'll give you a point... now.Anyway, what do you guys wanna do?
>>31849847Why should we care about this country?
>>31849889use the absolute turtle defense and transition into bite of the snapping turtle
>>31849889Summon turtles to counteract the numbers disadvantage.
>>31849900Because big secret cults usually have big secret treasure troves
>>31849926summon turtles on the enemy side? That doesn't sound very pragmatic....
>>31849889Get in turtle stance. We have Grouchiness so we auto counter. Then summon the turtles to turn things around.
>>31849929We can't carry a whole lot of loot with us.
>>31849889Let's get close to the club bitch, try to force her to block our big sword directly with her club so we can shank her with our other hand. Also maneuver so she's between us and the giant, between that and being close to its master it should be hard for it to attack us.
>>31849920>>31849926>>31849955Supporting these. I want to end this fight before we take casualties. Turtles never let us down before.
>>31849889>Summon turtles >Back the fuck off
>>31849889Summon the turtles
>>31849953What?We're two against one right now. The giant and the blood cultist. If we summon the turtles we're no longer outnumbered.
>>31849955Let's go with this.
>>31849980yeah but we're in the middle of them and I don't think it's an instant summon
>>31849961>Secret cult has brainwashing magic>Become new cult leader>Use zombies to carry loot for us
>>31850018Hence getting in turtle stance to do it.
>>31849889Once again, jump up and out of the mist, take a deep breath, and then spin downwards. Try to take out of the giant first. We should be at about head height at the apex of the jump. Decapitate him and then bat the head towards the chick with the flat side of the blade, before following up with a regular leaping swing.
>>31850032You're not very convincing, anon.I don't want to be in this continent for much longer anyway,We got what we came for. Let's just get these two altars and leave.
>>31850037I also don't think we can summon them from turtle stance.
Alright. Summoning, plus defensive stance with counters it is.Let's see if you can pull it off.Gimme a d20 roll!
Rolled 18>>31850070go shax
Rolled 15>>31850032Man, I want a necromancer in our raid. It'd make the fighting and looting so much easier.>>31850070
>>31850058You're just a very doubtful person, aren't you?
>>31850102well we needed hand motions for the crystal spear, I figured this would be similar.
>>31850093>>31850100>>31850101>>31850103The Shax we know and love was a little too late.
>>31850084Oh hey, those 18s from earlier decided they actually wanted to be used this time. Writing.
Rolled 11>>31850119Use em like a peasant serving girl chief.
You're going to need back up. And you know just where to get it. You bring your oversized sword down in front of you like a shield, and reach into a pouch for an astral pearl with your free hand. You think about those cute turtles as you start to spin, until the pearl glows. You toss the pearl upward, and it leaves a glimmering trail of dust as it arcs into the air. An axe blow comes sweeping in at your legs, and you knock the blade into the ground, coming back around on the swing to cut an arm off the grey giant.Roaring, it rears back, pulling the axe out of the ground with some effort. Bursting from the ground, a large tutle takes a rough bite into the side of the giant, and then bowls him over. Another turtle comes out of the ground near where he lands, and bites the head of the giant clean off. Gross.Two more shelled defenders pop out of the ground on either side of you. Oh good, they are pretty fast at showing up, huh? The club girl clicks her tongue and backs up, holding one hand out and sending two red whips to the side again. Moments later, the grey giants are drug through the air to her. She's called her buddies back! Still, five versus three, with your minions on the way? You like these odds. The two giants flanking the feathered girl get into defensive positions.>Hop onto a turtles back. Ride it and charge at their defensive formation! Take her out before she gets into any more mischief.>What's the rush? We can just hold her off till your minions show up. Then she'll be super outnumbered.
>>31850377I say we go turtle bowling. Send three turtles rolling/spinning at the guys to knock them down, then ride the last one in to Megaton Sky Hammer the club lady.
>>31850377>>Hop onto a turtles back. Ride it and charge at their defensive formation! Take her out before she gets into any more mischief.
>>31850377>Hop onto a turtles back. Ride it and charge at their defensive formation! Take her out before she gets into any more mischief.Get closer! I want to swing my sword at her!
>>31850377Let's get going while there's a chance that she hasn't quite grasped the situation yet. >Charge
Rolled 10>>31850415Not sure the turtles can roll like you're thinking
>>31850476But if they can't then that's boring and not very cool.Considering how this quest usually is I don't expect our turtle summons to be boring uncool things.
Aren't turtles slow? This seems relevant.
>>31850377>>What's the rush? We can just hold her off till your minions show up. Then she'll be super outnumbered.That red mist means trouble, maybe Bear or Ally can do something about it.
Rolled 6>>31850515Dude, turtles are vicious and tanky and actually pretty fast when you get them riled up
>>31850377>Hop onto a turtles back. Ride it and charge at their defensive formation! Take her out before she gets into any more mischief.CHARGE
>>31850576Are you a turtle riler?
Think there's been enough swording to get the next MSiF level, yet?SWORD SAINT MOTHERFUCKERS
Giant Turtles are roughly human paced (both run and walk) they're considered slow only in comparison to the rest of the animal kingdom.
>>31850619Are you telling me that a fit turtle could beat me in a race? Fuck.
>>31850515It looks like our turtles can throw their weight around in bodyslams. Imagine a couple tons of Crystal Turtle barreling down on you.
>>31850663Only in a short distance if properly motivated.
>>31850619What if you expose them to "28 days later" treatment?
Oh man. It is like a dream come true. You've always wanted to do this. You scramble on to a turtle's head and quickly crawl onto its back. You barely manage to keep yourself from collapsing into a giggling heep, settling instead to just titter maniacally as you position yourself on top of the turtle shell. You level your sword at the girl with the club, and shout, "Chaaaaaaarge!" At the top of your lungs.The lumbering turtles start moving forward, a little slow but still pretty quick, at the giant guards and their headdress girl. The turtle you're riding is behind a spear head of three other turtles, and the giants attempt a counter charge, lest they just be overrun. Two turtles dogpile one giant, bearing it to the ground and ripping it to shreads. The other turtle and the whip giant struggle with each other, but you keep the charge straight at the club girl.The scrabbling claws on the ground do little to impede the charge, and your crystalline mount cares little for her choking fumes. She seems to realize her typical defenses are no good, readies her club and does a jumping swing at your mount, landing a solid blow on its head and sending a lattice of cracks through it.wow! what a jerk. Your turtle snaps back, grabbing her club in its mouth with a lightning fast motion. That's what she gets. She struggles with it for a moment, before you leap off your loyal turtle mount's back, landing with a wide swing at the girl's legs.She lets go of her club, and dances back to avoid you. She's unarmed now, though. Shouldn't be too much trouble! You circle each other for a bit, her backing up when you advance, when Brokagh sneaks up behind her and chops her right in the neck, felling the girl. Well. That works.>Finish her off. She ain't worth the trouble.>Take her prisoner! You don't know how you'll keep her bound, though.
>>31850806>Finish her off. She ain't worth the trouble.
>>31850806Keep her prisoner We need a pack-mule
>>31850806>Finish her off. She ain't worth the trouble.We've already got axe-girl. And she's a much more fun Oversized Weapon rival.
>>31850806>Finish her off. She ain't worth the trouble.I dunno, she seems like bad news, but she is another oversized weapon user.Probably for the best, though. THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!

>>31850806We are surrounded by magic on all sides - can we force an oath or something?Swear to serve me or be devoured by turtles!
>>31850899uh yeah we canwe did it to fish guy
Are you prepared for the consequences of killing another oversized weapon user?Writing!
>>31850806>>Finish her off. She ain't worth the trouble
>>31850925Self delusion doesn't actually make someone a rival. Fish guy was a scrub, he wasn't a destined rival at all.
>>31850929Will our weapon eat her weapon???
>>31850946no, he was a destined rivalhe got the two stars intro and the giant anchor and everything
>>31850946I couldn't have said it better.
>>31850976No he didn't. The two stars thing happened but then it stopped and said an anchor didn't count as a weapon.
>>31850976And he was a scrub, just like this chick
>>31850957Have we tried taking someone else's OSW?Will magic bullshit prevent us from using it?
>>31851010We should try it. It's almost the same as our weapon too We use our sword just like a tetsubo
>>31850806>Take her prisoner! You don't know how you'll keep her bound, though.Wait wait wait, why are so many people wanting to kill her?
>>31851010Doesn't axe girl use hers because of her blood? I bet we're the only chumps forced to rely on a magical item to use ours.
>>31851005I think this chick counts, due to the fact she has a real weapon and is the champion of the Queen of Blood.
>>31851047So? Why shouldn't we kill her?
>>31851041She made a bad first impession. Also she's from the worst country. Also also she hurt one of our turtles and maybe our friends too.
>>31851041Because there's no fucking point to keeping her prisoner.We don't want to be involved with this continents bullshit anymore. We want to get these two altars and then give dragon lady or shota sex doll.
>>31851001seriously? Quibbling over that in a comedy quest?
>>31851065That shota sex doll is going straight to Mr. Witch. He'll turn it into a real girl.
>>31851069I don't consider this a comedy quest.
>>31851069We didn't get a destiny point from it. I assume that means it doesn't count.
>>31851083You don't think it's funny? Well that's fine, have fun in your own way.
>>31851058I didn't say anything about not killing her.
>>31851080Let's not piss off the scary dragon lady. Plus she might give us minidragon mounts
>>31851069A better reason to not quibble is because it's been made pretty clear that at least 70% of the story is made up on the spot.
>>31851080But anon, we don't know if Dragon Lady is bi. That could break everything if he turns it into a real girl instead of a real boy. Do you want to piss off our benefactor?
>>31851083You are probably the single person who doesn't.
>>31851083>>31851098It's an action/adventure quest with large amounts of comedy ingrained
>>31851107That sounds cool. You know what would be cooler? Shax for Dracomagus President.
I don't know, we aren't a stranger to killing people but it doesn't seem right killing her after finding out that Mr. Vampire was not as insane as we thought he would have been.
>>31851083??? I'm now curious what you consider this quest to be. And is there anything you consider as comedy?
>>31851121She has a hot drow chick as her closest assistant. I don't think she cares as long as they're cute.
>>31851156Since when did we figure any of that out?
>>31851156What? That guy was crazy fucking insane. Like really evil bad insane.
>>31851172He was abusive shoujo love interest insane. The worst kind.
>>31851163Oh, right. Forgot about that one. Carry on then.
>>31851156Nah, he was insane, but I don't know why people have become so bloodthirsty either.
>>31851172And he could've made our auntie really happy by giving us a litter of vampire goblins.
>>31851169>>31851172Chief said he would have joined us later if we didn't kill him didn't he?
>>31851190more like it's a comedy quest with a secondary adventure theme.
>>31851189We don't want to bring anybody home from Namek except the team we left with, that's why.And this "Queen of Blood" person ain't gonna sit in our chairs.
>>31851189Dude. We kill people all the time and think nothing of it. We've executed people who we liked because we don't take prisoners. This is more a practicality thing.
>>31851222I wanted to bring cute lizard boy home..Maybe we can find another cute lizard?
>>31851189People aren't being bloodthirsty. It's just what else are we going to do with her? We don't need her as a prisoner since we're trying to leave this continent behind and we can't let her go. She wants the doll from us so she'd just attack us again.Shax has murdered people instead of taking prisoners on more than one occasion.>>31851213I'm pretty sure that was a joke. He called this continent the Otome game continent in that post.
>>31851213Only if we freed him. And that doesn't make him any less insane.
>>31851233Those are redshirts from Team NPC, not a destined rival.
>>31851251I see no difference.
>>31851251Axe girl is a better destined rival. We don't need any extra people trying to butt in to the rivalry.
Shax does need a boyfriend... what should it be?
>>31851233We haven't done anything like that in a while. The moment we took away that girls club she wouldn't have been a threat anymore, and she probably wouldn't even count as an oversized weapon user.
>>31851241Yeah, it's a shame about the lizardguy.He was cool, up until he backstabbed us and tried to turn Shax into a mindless zombie.
>>31851251we killed fish dudewe're already leaving axe girl alive even though she's gotten in our way 2-3 times alreadyyou know why? She's incompetent. This girl isn't. She dies.
>>31851273I'd rather not worry about it.Shax can do whatever she wants. She doesn't need to listen to auntie and she doesn't want to either.
>>31851273Sword spirit. We kill enough things and our sword gets soul bits and we date that.
>>31851273Golem/warforged made of solid gold or various shiny objects
>>31851273A Jack Rackan type. Just because it would be amusing
>>31851278yeah we havewe slaughtered those ritual guys
>>31851298>>31851299I...What?I'm scared. Help.
>>31851273I wish I could hate you to death.
>>31851298>>31851299Reincarnation could turn Allonces into a hot guy.
What if we romanced the shota we just found?
>>31851278So? She tried to kill us and hurt our friends and our turtles. And will continue to try to kill us if she lives.
>>31851298>>31851299>Same fucking second
>>31851298>>31851299Wow, nice hivemind.
>>31851311Some people have no taste anon, it can't be helped.
Immediaetly you assess the damage done to your team. Allonces looks pretty hurt, and Sitri has welts all over her. "Haha, that whip guy was on me something fierce." She scratches her head, with an apologetic smile on her face. Bearbreath is fine, obviously, and Brokagh seems to be doing okay."Yeah, I wasn't even sure how to approach these guys. Their arms are bigger than my chest," He thumps his bare chest a couple of times for emphasis, "And it is pretty big." You would describe him as broad.Fetidclaw is doing fine. "Being an archer has it's benefits, even if arrows do jackshit and fuck all to those things." That language. For some reason everyone gives him a disapproving look.Still, you've got a problem here. This lady is down for the count but she is major trouble. A powerful necromancer, with all kinds of debuffs. Who knows what sort of awesome summons she had. Maybe she could have even made those giants. But hey, she lost and you won. And there isn't much reason to let her live to keep harassing you.Allonces glances at you, "So, what are you planning for her? Gonna interrogate her?" She leans in close and whispers, "Having been on the receving end, you aren't very good at it." Hey! That's uncalled for. Without any further thought, you pick up your sword and bring it down on the headdress girl.>A star flickers out in the night sky.That takes care of that.Sitri rubs her chin looking at the club. "Hmm. This tetsubo might be enchanted. Wanna take it with you?"You shrug, "Who can carry it anyway?""Can't you carry a bunch of stuff?" You give her a look, "Not saying you're a pack mule! Just pointing it out." You could. Might as well, you guess. you take the big club and put it on your back.
>>31851311Well shit,why not both.
God dammit. I was hoping to avoid this waifu/husbando bullshit in this quest. Or at least let it happen naturally without too much fuss from the playerbase as the quest develops.But then this asshole had to open the can of worms and make it a topic of discussion.
>>31851344I regret nothing.
It's time to keep heading to the altar! A few uneventful days pass on your trip there, and it seems like most of the fires in Utalaga have died down. Fetid assure you that you're in the right spot, and there is a small temple here. It looks like it has been worn down recently.Inside, you see an altar and a chair. The altar has a plate with fruit on it. It seems someone has been here in the past few days. Nothing is leaping out at you to attack you like the last one. Aren't there supposed to be guardians?>Claim the altar?>Is this a trap. This seems like a trap. Let's look for traps.>Smash it.
>>31851357>Is this a trap. This seems like a trap. Let's look for traps.WITH THE CHALICE OF TRUE SIGHT!
>>31851301She could be jack Rackan, all she needs is a little self awareness about how absurd the stuff she pulls of is.
>>31851357>Is this a trap. This seems like a trap. Let's look for traps.Sneaky sneaky.
>>31851357>take itThere's no trap here.
>>31851357>Is this a trap. This seems like a trap. Let's look for traps
>>31851357Does this mean we are going to forget about the blood throne thing?
>>31851357>Is this a trap. This seems like a trap. Let's look for traps.Drink from the chalice.
>>31851357>Claim the altar?Of course it's a trap but the best way to test for traps is to set off the trap. That way, you KNOW there's a trap and you aren't left second guessing yourself.It makes sense, see?
>>31851344It's just joking, guy.>>31851357>Claim the altar?
>>31851334>Bearbreath is fine, obviously,I love this.
>>31851357>Check for traps>Claim it
>>31851357>implying it's a trapJust claim the altar.
>>31851357Wait, what happened to the shota?>Is this a trap. This seems like a trap. Let's look for traps.
>>31851386Blood powers are icky. Who needs em.
>>31851357>Is this a trap. This seems like a trap. Let's look for traps.Let's take a sip from that chalice and see what horrors have been hidden from our sight.
>>31851357Steal the traps
>>31851357Drink from the chalice, then snack on some fruit. It's definitely been too long since we ate something.
>>31851118It's a lot closer to 90%>>31851121She is dragonsexual>>31851131That's what I hope people think it is!>>31851241I liked him to. I was gonna have him betray you the first time you roll a 1, and if you had gotten through the continent cancelling/not rolling any you woulda gotten him.Turns out you crit fail basically immediately!>>31851344>Shax has to join a swim team for a sea mom side quest>oh gosh all these cute boys in swim trunksAnyway. Writing!
>>31851517>I was gonna have him betray you the first time you roll a 1, and if you had gotten through the continent cancelling/not rolling any you woulda gotten him.Seriously? You had to know this was impossible.
>>31851517So dual wielding is gonna be standard now right?
>>31851614I wonder if her weapon is as magically enchanted as ours.
>>31851718Isn't ours not at all enchanted? It's made out of super material thanks to earth elemental, that's it.
>>31851744Pretty sure the earth dude just enchanted it to be super hard
Why are drow lady and dragon lady fighting this war anyway?
>>31851835To take over the world. Duh.
>>31851835Because their evil, why else?
>>31851835I don't know about personal reasons but I imagine the whole kill the surfacers, be evil and that whole shtick.
>>31851843Maybe we should ask her? She could tell us exactly why.
>>31851835I don't know, why does Sea Mom want to flood the world?
You drink from the chalice and glance around. This place looks clean. alright. Time to eat. You pick up an apple from the plate. It has a wire attached to it and pulling it shuts the doors of the temple behind you. Lights turn on all over the place, in big bright glaring beams.A trap!Nothing is happening, though. You tentively take a bite from the apple. A familiar feeling of falling through space and an explosion of light from inside your mind happens. When your vision clears, you're in some sort of library. There are lamps everywhere, and they are all giving you some sorta awful glare.Who would design a library like this.An old woman hobbles over to you. "Greetings, aspirant, to the Glaring Archives. Please wait here while I find the master of this place." She motions to a seat. Well, no reason to be rude. You look at the books. Everything has foiled titles and the light makes it freaking impossible to see what they are. Is this some kind of hell or something?You pull one out and flip through it. You have to get into a weird angle in a chair to be able to read and it is super uncomfortable, but you manage it. It's slow going but it appears to be some sort of fairy tale. It is about a young elf girl and her being saved by a dragon. The dragon raises her and then eats her. The girl then cuts her way out of the dragons stomach, because the dragon ate the only weapon that could kill her earlier to prevent anyone from getting it. What a stupid story. If you had the only thing that could kill you, you would just use it as a weapon. Then you'd probably just fall on it or something dumb in a dramatic twist. Fairy tales are stupid. You shut the book, and look at the clock on the wall.Two hours have passed.Good lord."I've brought the master as I said I would, aspirant." You fall out of your chair at the sound of her voice. Rubbing your backside, you stand up.
A weird looking person is standing there. It looks sort of like a golem, all metal and wood. "Hello." It waves at you."Hi, I'm Shax. What the heck are you?"The old woman interjects, "The master of this place.""Oh, I'm supposed to beat you up, then?"The golem thing shakes its head, "Nah, you can have it. I was waiting for someone to come along to take it.""Eh? Why?"The golem looks at the ceiling, "I've been taking care of this place for a very long time. But I couldn't let the plane revert to its natural state. I wanted to hand it off to someone. Say, if I let you have control, will you promise to not change the library?""I dunno if I can help that."Twin glass eyes fix on yours, "If you promise now, it will stay.">Agree to his request.>Nah, I'll just slap you and take it anyway.
>>31851909>>Nah, I'll just slap you and take it anyway.This place suuuuuuuucks.
>>31851909Who wouldn't want a big dumb library?>Take it as it is
Rolled 8>>31851909>Agree to his request.Reading is nice.
>>31851909>Agree to his request.Sounds reasonable enough, no need to start a fight.
>>31851909Agree, but ask for books with turtles.
>>31851909>Agree to his request.Libraries are fine. Knowledge is power and all that.Just ask him if we can add our own books and wings to it and he has a deal.
>>31851909>Agree to his request.But only on one condition: we can add signs to know where various books are.
>>31851909ask him if he'd mind some turtle themed library?
>>31851909>Agree to his request.He's cool. Books are lame but he's giving it to us for free and that's cool. So he's cool.Besides, we already killed someone important today. Can't get too productive or people might start having expectations of us. And that seriously bites into our goof-off time.
>>31851909>Agree to his request.no need to be mean or rude
>>31851909>>Agree to his request.Eh, whatever. Oh! Can we name a wing after Shax? The one with marine biology books?
>>31851969There should probably be a marine biology SECTION.
>>31851961Where do you think we are?
Agree but ask for minor changes
You agree to maintain the existence of the worst library ever!Writing.
So if this place will become our study, is the other place our foyer? Can we get an aquarium bedroom at some point?
>>31852034Yeah, all that light + the foiled titles is just plain stupid.
I don't mind keeping a library but the set up is pretty lame. We should have at least pointed out how stupid it is.Eh, maybe the old lady has some way of knowing where the books are. She's probably magic like that.
>>31852034Question Chief, can we change it to another watery home at a later time?
>>31852189We could just make it a watery library. We don't know what specifically he doesn't want us to change.
>>31852034Ask if we can personalize it and make it ours.
>>31852034...why did I have to get here late. We could at least have negotiated turni down the blinding lights!
>>31852206I would be very happy with a watery library, I take back >>31852189.
>>31852189>>31852206Why does it need to be watery?Sea mom is cool and all but I don't see why Shax needs to flood everything because she's her blade. Besides, our glowing crystal/moss cave has watery stuff going on. Let's have a little variety with our domains.Turn down the lights and get rid of the foil on the covers and this place is fine as is.
>>31852037>>31852001>>31852034Ask to make it an underwater library.
>>31852260Apparently Shax legitimately likes underground lakes. It calms her and reminder of home.To a goblin, that's like a beach in Hawaii.
>>31852260Shaxs natural realm is semi watery
>>31852276She's already got one of those, though.Flooding a library just sounds dumb.
>>31851888>"will you promise to not change the library?">Everyone asking to change the libraryThis better end with Golem rage
>>31852295People have voted to ask the golem if we can change small details.
>>31852260Really I'm alright with whatever Chief decides to do even if he doesn't decide to change it up.
>>31852276>>31852282She already has a glowing cave with an underground lake when she took over the Glimmering Fields.
>>31852285Why? Are merfolk not allowed libaries? It'd be sweet as hell with fish swimming through the shelves.
>>31852285We could always make it an underwater library with a glass ceiling.
>>31852324That sounds cool.Actually putting water in the library is not a good idea.The books will mold.
>>31852338>>31852324I'd support these.
>>31852295Depends what he means though. If the function stays the same but it looks different, it may be fine. It's like giving the old place a nice coat of paint. Only instead of paint it's water and turtles.
>>31852206He specifically said he doesn't want us changing anything.
>>31852338>The books will mold.Only if Shax wants them to! And she doesn't.
You guys just voted to promise not to change it. Why the fuck are you discussing what to change it into?
>>31852338>books will moldNot if MAGIC!
>>31852377We voted to ask him if we could change small details. I doubt interior decorating is a huge priority. He was probably more concerned with the books themselves.
>>31852377Goblin memory yo. Their dedication to roleplaying is impressive.
>>31852377Don't look at me. I got here late and plan to double cross this guy once he leaves. If that's not allow lets just consecrate the library to one of Sea Mom's chums and let them deal with redecorating.
>>31852377I just wanted a shelf named after Shax...
>>31852377The way I understood it, the old guardian just wants us to leave the books as they are now.
>>31852349This is obviously some sort of magical test/trapSomething bad is about to happen
>>31852430Not what he said.
>>31852422>>31851909>Twin glass eyes fix on yours, "If you promise now, it will stay."I don't think that is possible.
>>31852451>implying anyone gives a damn about how we decorate the placeThis is about preserving the knowledge of the past or something like that.
We can at least ask.
>>31852349He's not talking about function. This is a pocket plane library, so it's fundamental nature as a repository of knowledge can't be changed. The only thing we can really mess with is it's form, so he's asking us not to make any aesthetic changes.
>>31852479I'm suggesting we break our word. Or just hand the library off to the next guy and then turn around and kill him, reclaim it and then do some remodeling.
>>31852499>This is a pocket plane library, so it's fundamental nature as a repository of knowledge can't be changedSays who? Pretty sure we could change that if we didn't choose to promise.
>>31852499The golem never said this. He was vague and many voted to ask for clarification.
>>31852499How about we ask and then decide
"Okay, sure, but they'll be some changes." No reason to fight if you don't have to.The golem nods, "Very well. As long as the books remain. Most of this knowledge no longer remains in this world." If it were all as awful as that fairy tale book, it doesn't surprise you."Why'd you wanna keep this place, anyway, it is sort of awful? The last place I took over was neat, and I made it even neater."The golem stops, "You already control a plane?""Yep.""Oh. Is it a plane of light?""Yeppers.""I see. This should be interesting, then.""What's that supposed to mean?"The golem just laughs in response. You hope that you won't ever be an enigmatic jerk like that. He bows, and walks away. The old woman fetches a chair. "As the master has abdicated the throne, it is yours to take." Alright, time to get this show on the road. You sit down.There is a rumbling. The walls turn to stone, and the bookcases become wooden shelves cut into precise walls. The floor becomes a strange, thank and cool glass floor, with bright crystals underneath. They still provide a glare, but when coming from beneath it isn't so bad. Water begins to lap at your feet, and glowing boss starts to cover the walls, stopping before reaching any of the bookcases. Off the floor are raised stone platforms with floating steps. On each of these platforms is a study desk with a brightly shining crystal.In the end, it looks like some sort of strange stone laboratory, with a glass floor and books lining the stone walls. The ceiling is domed, with large crystals flaring with light, and surrounded by moss. The water on the floor is flowing slightly, and cool. You're not sure where it's heading.
"Oh, Master!" Your custodian from other place is here. "I see you added another realm to your own. Your domain has grown and fused together with this place. A library, though? I didn't take you for the, ah, studying type." You mentally note to tell him to look up the meaning of the word 'patronizing' some time. His reptillian eyes squint as his vision passes over one of the extremely bright crystals. "Can't say I like the new additions too much.""Oh, shut up. Those things provide enough light to read unlike your softly growing crap." The old woman shuffles over to him. She's grown a giant turtle shell.The custodian scoffs, "Never thought I'd see you again. Please, leave the tidying up to me. You'll only get in my way.""You wouldn't know a good book if it hit you in the head. If you dare to suggest reading to our guests I'll have to smack you about!" Wow, are these servants? You've never had those before.
You raise a hand, "Do I get a maids?""No." "Absolutely not." The two servants reply simultaneously.Maybe a different approach, "What about cute butlers?""Never." "I could be convinced." Ah hah! Division in the ranks!There are various crystal turtles milling about, with books and reading platforms on their backs. Thin and tall stone humanoids are walking through the aisles, rearranging books as well. They have bright crystals in their palms and forehead. Weird. You don't like them nearly as much as the turtles. One walks over to you. You make them grow a lizard tail and snout. Much better. Stone lizard guys.>You've unlocked new divine feats!>Your crystal turtles can now fire lasers, and also glow very brightly from the inside.>Summon Stone Lizard Servant! These thin stone servants are excellent scouts and information gatherers. Maybe you can even figure out how to make them assassins? They're super quiet.>Summon Glarestone! You can make a giant super bright crystal. You're not sure what you'll use it for, but it is incredibly aggrivating.>You've earned new passive feats! The old woman and custodian will let you store items in your new cavemansionstudy. You give them the oversized club to begin with. You can now step into your pocket dimension from anywhere, given an hour of time to concentrate.>You can make your sword glow like a flashlight. Maybe you can do other things with your sword as well?What's the plan now, boss?>Head back to the temple.>Start grilling the help on what all this is about.
>>31852634>Start grilling the help on what all this is about.We don't need to spend a pearl to get here?
>>31852634>Head back to the temple.We can ask about specifics after we claim the third altar and have yet another cute butler/maid/servant to help explain it.
>>31852584>glowing boss starts to cover the wallsdat space radiation
>>31852634>Head back to the temple.We can grill these guys once we get all three together.
>>31852634>>Start grilling the help on what all this is about.
>>31852634>Your crystal turtles can now fire lasers, and also glow very brightly from the inside.Oh my gosh yes
>>31852634>Start grilling the help on what all this is about.Also let's ask ol' crystal eyes what the thinks of our redecorating.
>>31852634"Do you guys know anything about Sea Mom?"Also, we don't get more astral pearls?
>>31852634>Head back to the temple.Maid soon, fellow goblins!
>>31852634>Start grilling the help on what all this is about.How many other thrones are there?Are there any guest-rooms or sleeping quarters in this place?Can we bring other people here? They would find this place neat as all get out. Maybe the creepy warlock dude would appreciate all the books?
>>31852634>Start grilling the help on what all this is aboutMore power? More pearls?
>>31852729Pretty much this.
>>31852634>There are various crystal turtles milling about, with books and reading platforms on their backs.Man, i wish my uni had a library like this instead of a boring cubic building consisting of a gazillion squares.
>>31852691I bet we can fire sword lasers too. Sword. Lasers. Let's make like Link and never take damage.
>>31852634> Demand crystals! Give me some of them crystals!> Also, once we are back, summon a Stone Lizard Servant! Minions are nice and all but servants are even better. Boss needs a servant. (This guy will stay around right? not like turtles.)
Alright. Writing. Last update for tonight before exp and etc.Short thread, I know, sorry!
>>31852846whaaat, I just got here

>>31852918How can you not be? The name is so awesome.the name is all we know about it.
>>31852947RISING METEOR'S FINAL JUDGEMENT PENANCE SLASH has a better name. Imagine Axe Girl's face when we bust that out our next fight.
>>31852918Objectively terrible taste
>>31853052It is a fine name but it certainly isn't as great as "Why do all the folks keep callin' me a sword saint?"
>>31852947>the name is all we know about it.Pretty sure Chief actually told us what it was about. Special moves and running into other sword saints or something?
>>31853143We know it is its own tree about cool s'ord things. And other s'ord people will want to fight us cause we are so good s'ording. That's about it. We don't know the abilities in it.I'd still want it even if it gave no bonuses but just made other people think we are a godly sword saint. It is just so great.
"Hey, do I get more pearls?!" You grab the custodian by the shoulders.He gently takes your arms off him, "Yes. Obviously. Just one more a month, though. Here you go." He points a thumb at the old woman. "Because her section of the plane wasn't as strongly connected to light as mine.""You say that like it's a bad thing. Did you know I could actually get stuff done? People would visit and not worry about being eaten by guardians. People liked it here!" This seems to be an old argument.You step between them, "Hey, let's not fight. What are the other thrones, anyway?"The custodian crosses his arms in a huff. "Why don't you just go read about them, huh? In this oh so great library."Beaming the old woman wraps on arm around yours, and pats you on the arm. "There, there. Why don't I lead you to a fascinating book about it?"You shake your head, "Uh, no thanks. Just tell me a little about them."They break it down for you. There are hundreds of thrones, but most of them are claimed by various elemental lords. Their servants were the people you were encountering on the main land. They build up enough power to have a court, and then start throwing their weight around on a cosmic scale. Sounds like a lot of jerks. The smaller and weaker elements have thrones unclaimed, and most of those are on Yselathe, a country whose magical concerns have little to do with the elements, since their studies have more to do with demons and necromancy."So does that make me a light elemental or something, now?" You ask, processing the information."Nah, you can just create and control them. Like you are already doing.""Oh. Okay. Hey, can I bring friends here?" You're some people would be interested."Yes, but they can only stay while you are here. They have to leave before you do, as your entrance to this plane is fixed to where you made it." Hmm. You'll have to think on all this.
We need to visit that guy who told us to smash them to rub this in his face.

>>31853299>As Expected of Me! - You've convinced yourself that you have to lead by example! Acts of heroism grant a temporary super stat bonus!>sword saint
>>31853230Hmm. You know, if we connected a farming throne up to our little demiplane we could use this place as a bomb shelter/stillery.
>>31853299>Bite the Hand that Feeds YouWe're about to deal with Dragon Lady soon. That diplomacy bonus would be useful there.>RISING METEOR'S FINAL JUDGEMENT PENANCE SLASH

>>31853299>Bite the Hand...I think we're going to need that bonus sooner than later for DragonLady.>Softshell Soft BellyI just think we should have it before the other Sword Saints and wannabees start showing up constantly.

>>31853299>>If you Feed Them - Everyone has an increase in morale, and you can tame wild animals easier!as expected of me is probably going to win but i actually want this and wolf more. its neat to find and tame all sorts of weird animals.>Sword Saint
Alright! Votes closed. Let's see who won.
>>31853466Actually i will change the boss vote to bite the hand that feeds you. Maybe it'll matter.
>>31853299When you say "tame wild animals easier" I want to know if that applies to wild zombies, elementals and other magical stuff and whether this "taming" would help keep them from being turned by a magic user?
>>31853519Last minute changes don't count unless you delete the original
>>31853531It says animals right there in the desciption. Is it an animal? If yes then it helps tame it.
As expected of me is obtained!So is sword saint! I'll put up a proper tree next thread. Thank you all for reading and playing! It was five hours, which isn't that bad, at least? I still feel like it was short somehow.Thanks for playing along with me! It is a lot of fun reading your wild speculation about things, especially since most of the details are made up as I go. I steal from your ideas often.It is fun.So keep having them. Thank you all again! I am busy all weekend, so next thread is probably going to be next thursday. Unfortunately. I might be able to run later on Sunday, but we'll see.
>>31853547Both not true and irrelevant since the voting windo closed before his modification.
>>31853547Who the fuck made that rule? There is no such rule.
>>31853553Thank you for running!
>>31853466>>31853573It's standard practice for quests
>>31853613No it is not.
>>31853553Thanks for running, Chief, see you next thread.
>>31851884Sea Mom is a god, they're supposed to want dumb things. Mortals should have more sensible goals when not woshipping boring dumb gods.
So what happened to the golem?Did he just bugger off to somewhere or is he, like, dead or something?
>>31854664He's somewhere with a good view watching the show Shax is about to unleash.
