I like the picture so much I'm using it twice edition!You are Shax Bonemurdered, and you are ready to get home! This continent has been pretty crazy, and you're ready to put it behind you. Which is why you're skipping along to the port, merrily humming a tune! Ah, the ocean! The sweet, sweet sea that you have come to love! The fresh ocean breeze! It only smells mildly like rotting fish. Everyone is happy, and you're all jogging along at a brisk pace, smiling at the passers by. You wave at the grumpy looking ape man, crossing his arms on the way to the port distrcit. He raises his arm, palm outstretched."Sorry. Port's closed."Whaaaaaaaaaat?>Shax's Stuff!

Advance this by defeating strong swordsmen!You're now in a bar drinking your sorrows away with a glass of black tea and mango. You don't know what mangos are, other than DELICIOUS, but you're definitely enjoying it. The bar is making sure to ignore the half naked orc woman and naked boy doll at your table. They've probably seen stranger, to be fair."So, what the heck are we supposed to do to get out of here, boss?" Brokagh grumbles. You like Brokagh. He always calls you boss.You have a few ideas!>Go find out what the problem is and offer to solve it to get the port back open.>Try to find a smuggler or something in the seedy underbelly of this seedy town.>Go to the beach, try to get the sea mom to send you a horrifying diluvian monstrosity.>Just find another town.

>>32061492You know I want that diluvian monstrocity. I also have something less basic going on, but it's going to be maybe another hour or two before I'm done with that.
>>32061492>Go to the beach, try to get the sea mom to send you a horrifying diluvian monstrosity.
It is mother's day, after all.Writing.
You down your manog tea with a savage slurp of the curly straw, kicking your legs under the table before resting your head on the flat of your hand. "I could always steal a ship," Brokagh offers half heartedly."I'm sure I could maybe convince some pirates to help us out," Sitri suggests with a shrug."I'd offer to take us across the sea, but I can't turn into a baleen whale. Yet," Bearbreath promises."If the people here weren't such savages, I'm sure I could charm the local government," Allonces grumbles, sipping her curly straw tea as well."Hey, don't look at me. I just guard the doll," Fetid raises her hands in mock surrender, "Why don't you just ask the Sea Mother? She likes you, right? And doesn't she have an army of horrifying aquatic creatures at her beck and call?" Oh, that's not an awful idea at all."We're going to the beach!" You declare, raising your hand up."I don't have a swimsuit, though." "The sea water makes my fur all nasty..." "I've never told anyone this before, but I'm scared of starfish." "Oh, I've been meaning to to tan." "I don't know many aquatic animals, you know.""Shut up, and let's go!" You kick back from the table, leaving some absurd amount of gold coins since you have a hard time understand the value of currency, and get a move on.Is there anything you'd like to take care of in town, before you go?>Shopping! You have a lot of gold from that Utalagian temple.>Go brag to the darkness priest guy how cool you are now!>Let's just get a move on!
>>32061987>Go brag to the darkness priest guy how cool you are now!
>>32061987>>Shopping! You have a lot of gold from that Utalagian temple.Souvenirs for Milda and Whoop!
>>32061987>Shopping! You have a lot of gold from that Utalagian temple.LOOT
>>32061987>Let's just get a move on!My god that second option is such a terrible idea that i almost want to do it. But let's get back to rest of the minions already. It is not good to seperate the minions from their boss for so long.
>>32061492>>Go to the beach, try to get the sea mom to send you a horrifying diluvian monstrosity.
>>32061987>>Shopping! You have a lot of gold from that Utalagian temple.We need an awesome hat.
>>32061987>>Let's just get a move on!
>>32061987>>Shopping! You have a lot of gold from that Utalagian temple.Wonder what we can pick up.Maybe some armor?Maybe A Hat
>>32061987>Shopping! You have a lot of gold from that Utalagian temple. Lets at least see whats for sale.
Alright! Time for shopping.
You wander into a bazaar, the spicy smells that permeated Lanketh seem to intensify here. Many demons are shouting from stalls set up throughout the winding alleys and thoroughfares. You pick up some grilled lizards, a couple pieces of jewelry, and a protective amulet guaranteed to keep evil spirits from peeking on you in the bath. Sitri got one, too! Allonces didn't.There were various criers shouting about various shops. More importantly, this was the heighest concentration of non-lankethians you've seen in one area. Dozens of races milled about sharing stories, haggling, and trading goods and services. Brokagh excuses himself from the group, and you agree to meet at the eastern gate around sundown. Bearbreath looks visibly uncomfortable around all these people and says he'll go on ahead.You pass under an archway that reads 'Alley of Pain' and see two crowds gathered in front of opposite stores. A red haired girl with a rawhide apron seems to be yelling at a well dressed young lady, resting a large metal mace on her shoulder. You're too far away to hear, though the crowd seems to be cheering."What's this all about, then?" Allonces asks aloud, getting the attention of some local."Rebecca and Rachel are long time rivals, they've each claimed to have completed their 'masterwork' and are showing them off. Rachel there has some sort of club that turned made a suit of armor to dust when it touched it!" Sounds like you could get HIGHLY irresponsible with that, "We haven't seen Rebecca's yet..." As if on cue, the girl reveals a small sword, and slashes it through the air at a dummy wearing armor. It starts sprouting roots and leaves, and the armor warps. The audience goes wild. After a few more demonstrations of magical weapons, the crowd disperses. Seems like these girls are talented artificers!Maybe you should go to one of their shops?>Rebecca's Magical Helmets and Blade Emporium.>Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel.
>>32062444>Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel.Fuck the tetsubo, we're a swordswoman!
>>32062444>Rebecca's Magical Helmets and Blade Emporium.Clearly we must recruit them.
>>32062444>>32062510Fuck, I meant >Rebecca's Magical Helmets and Blade Emporium.Post won't delete for some reason.
>>32062444So are we planning to abduct one of them and force them to forge weapons for our raiders?...or invite them to join our army, at least? This continent is terrible and there is no reason they should stay.
>>32062444>Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel.Personal smiths WOULD be quite the boon...
>>32062444>Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel.See if that mace is legitAlso get a nice helmet
>>32062565Convince one to come, tell the other that she's joining to move up in the world and she can have this shitty town for herself, get two. Maybe.
>>32062444>and a protective amulet guaranteed to keep evil spirits from peeking on you in the bathThat's a remarkably specific kind of amulet.>Allonces didn't.L-lewd...>Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel.Obvious choice is obvious.
>>32062444>>Rebecca's Magical Helmets and Blade Emporium.We can already cut through any armor. A root effect would be stupid handy, especially if it frees up Bearbreath to shoot lightning.
>>32062444>>Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel.It says they are classy.
>>32062444Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel.Hats are never a bad call.
>>32062444>>Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel.Irresponsible and goblins goes together like mangos and tea. Besides... Hats.
>>32062444>>Classy Weapons and Hats for the Talented Warrior by Rachel
You decide to go into the shop belonging to the lady with the metal eating club. A bell rings out as you open the pleasant gold relief oak door. "Welcome!" A voice calls out, and you see Rachel sitting on a counter top, kicking her legs. Despite the crowd earlier, the store seems relatively empty. And before long, you realize why. The prices in this place are insane!Though, to be fair, all these weapons look really good. There are a ton of them, of all kinds of styles, each with a professional signature engraving on the blade. They have high class enchantments on them, and look ridiculously sturdy, elegant, and strong. She mostly has axes and clubs, maybe as a person preference. Still, those prices... Your average person probably couldn't afford them!Granted, you're rich so it is fine. Rachel has been following you with her eyes, a slight pout on her face. "Excuse me," Allonces says, slightly raising her hand, "I saw your sign said hats? Do you know where they are?" Rachel's eyes slide over to the elf girl, and she lifts one hand to point limply to a corner. There are many shelves of hats and hat racks. Wow!Rachel hops down and walks over to your sword. She places one pale hand on it, running up the side of your sword with her finger tips. Her lips part slightly, pursing. "What a crude and burly thing..." She leans forward and sniffs it for a few moments. Then, pushing some strands of hair behind her ears, she leans forward, and licks your sword softly. What the heck. "Seems to have been reforged... I don't recognize the material. How'd this happen?" She's muttering to her self, looking at your sword with a challenging face.>U-um can I get a closer look at these weapons?>>Kaorti Resin crescent axe.>>Impact Collison Tetsubo>P-pardon me, can I look at your hats?>>Some wide brimmed afair.>>Formal hats typically made for males.>>Caps.>Do you offer enchanting services also please stop making me uncomfortable
>>32062943"Sorry, but only people who work for me are allowed to lick my things. Do you want a job?"
>>32062943>U-um can I get a closer look at these weapons?>>Kaorti Resin crescent axe.>TetsuboNaw guy, that's a mace.
>>32062943>P-pardon me, can I look at your hats?>>Some wide brimmed afair.>Do you offer enchanting services also please stop making me uncomfortable
>>32062943>P-pardon me, can I look at your hats?>>Some wide brimmed afair.>Do you offer enchanting services also please stop making me uncomfortableOh man!
>>32063012That's HER mace! The tetsubo is on the wall.You're free to make an offer on her super mace, as well, though.
>>32061745Is it really mothers day?
>>32062943>Some Elemental remade my sword or something. If you taste Calimari, that's all Sea-mom though.>Do you offer enchanting services also please stop making me uncomfortableSee if we can enchant our secondary weapon.
>>32063050Yes! Call your mom!
>>32062943>Do you offer enchanting services also please stop making me uncomfortable"Can you make my sword cooler?"
>>32062943>>32063007>"Sorry, but only people who work for me are allowed to lick my things. Do you want a job?"I second this suggestion.
>>32063060Holy shit why didnt anyone tell me!? This shit right here is why I come to /tg/
>>32063007I want this.
>>32062943>P-pardon me, can I look at your hats?>>Formal hats typically made for males.The only thing Shax needs... is a fedora.
>>32063109Maybe it's not mother's day where you are, anon.
>>32063116*does a backflip with a sword larger than she is, cuts a giant robot in half*pssh, nothing personnel kidAnyway, writing!
>>32062943>P-pardon me, can I look at your hats?>>Caps.Caps are useful in every situation and don't just fall off your head. Besides they look good on loli goblins.
>>32063007Well, we *do* have a forge now
>>32063124Having decided to check the actual date rather than listen to random people on the internet I have discovered that you are a correct.
>>32062943>>P-pardon me, can I look at your hats?>>>Some wide brimmed afair.>>>Formal hats typically made for males.>>>Caps.>>Do you offer enchanting services also please stop making me uncomfortable
Shuffling nervously away from the girl, you walk over to the hats where Allonces is currently cooing over. Rachel follows you step for step, inspecting your sword the entire time, muttering to herself. There are hundreds of hats here. You really like the wide ones...Taking a simple straw one off the rack, you put it on your head and look at yourself in the mirror. "A bit old fashioned, but cute!" Allonces says, walking over. She takes it off your head and plops some garish pink thing with a whole bouqet of flowers ribboned up in it. It goes along with your leather armor about as well as a turtle and high heels. You make a face as she giggles, swapping it out for a simple white hat, with blue ribbon. It looks nice! You pull on the brim and pose some for the mirror. You do this for a long time, swapping between hats. The entire time, Rachel has been messing with your sword. It's starting to make you very uncomfortable!"Hey, the only people allowed to feel up on my sword like that are employees, you know?""Oh, so I just have to work for you?" She glances up at you. "What's the pay?""Um. What can you do?""Forge. Enchant." She lifts her metal eating mace up and twirls it easily in one hand, "Fight a little."You're not a quartermaster so you have no idea what a wage would be. You've never hired anyone before, and the other servants you have work for free. You're a bit lost in this department! You look at Allonces and she shrugs. Jeez, no one in the party knows much about this sort of thing... You buy the white hat.>>Buy other hats! (Write in or post a pic. Won't count as a vote, I'll just pick the ones I like!)>Offer something unconventional to employ her.>Forget the job offer and just see what enchantments she has.
>>32063428>>Offer something unconventional to employ herAnd ask about enchantments
>>32063428>>Offer something unconventional to employ her.She gets a share of raid loot. Same as everyone else.
>>32063428Ask her what she wants
>>32063428>Offer something unconventional to employ her.She can have all the weird magic stuff we can't use.
>>32063428>>Offer something unconventional to employ her.Loot, obviously. That's why people join raids, because they get to loot.Show off our cool ass knick-knacks to entice her.
>Offer something unconventional to employ her.This is hilarious.
>>32063428She gets a share of the raid loot, her own room in the bitchin crystal lair we make when we get back to mainland, she gets our spare magical crap, and she gets to visit all the elementals. Especially the ones that enchanted our sword.
>>32063428>Offer something unconventional to employ herTell her if she works for us we can let her use our magic forge in our demiplane. Also a share in the loot.
>>32063428Do it faggot.
>>32063540It was his hat, Boss Shax! He was number one!
>>32063428We have a cool crystal palace with a magma based forge!That sounds like something you might want to take a look at.
>>32063428>Offer something unconventional to employ her.Would she like to meet all kinds of weirdos including but not limited to gods and goddesses? Work in a magical light plane with all kinds of books? Really, who knows what kind of knowledge she'll find for her job in our ancient library.
>>32063540Also, here's that other thing I was doing.
Alright, I think that's ten minutes.Writing. No hat suggestions? Disappointing. Fine! She gets these.Plus a baseball cap with "I'm Eggscellent" on it.And this. >>32063540
>Offer something unconventional to employ her.have you ever forged something on the plane of light. Also we can always works something out but for the most part it is raid loot.
>>32063686We'll get one after recruitment And we want something that will protect us if is enchanted
>>32063684I...I just...You win.You win this quest, you win everything forever. I love you.
>>32063713I'll add that to the list.>>32063684jesus christ man that is amazing seriously
>>32063684That looks as unorganized and random as Shax's mind.
>>32063713Man that is awesome. Fuck all of the others i want Shax wearing this. It just fits her so fucking beautifully.
>>32063684I like the statue of liberty.
What if adventurers came and killed our boyz, fishfriends, treebros, Snacky, Alphonse and dorf buddies while we were gone?W-what do we do then?
>>32063428What about a hat that says "I am a warrior who likes my brains inside of my skull"
>>32063713I want it.
As you're ringing up the various hats you've purchased, Rachel brings up the topic again, "So, got a list of terms for me yet?" It seems a bit halfhearted, truthfully, but there is some interest there."Well, I was thinking. You'd get a portion of raid loot, obviously, though you don't have to go on the raids themselves. I can introduce you to the elemental that made my sword like this," You wrap knuckle on it to solidify your point, "I have a magical forge in the celestial palace that I own on the elemental plane of light that I unified and rule," That gets looks from everyone, "You get to see new places? Also I have all sorts of magic junk I don't want and will never use that'll get slapped into the treasury. You'd be free to mess with those."The shop keeping girl stares at you for a few moments. "You rule an elemental plane?" You try on a skull covered hat, and then nod at her. It's sorta cute. "No you don't."You stick your tongue out at her, "Of course I do! I had to fight for them.""No way.""Why don't you believe me?""Look at you. You're a goblin with nothing more than a big sword.""Yeah, but it's really big so..."Rachel puts a hand on her forehead. "Okay, let's say you do. Can I see the forge before making any sort of permanent decision?"You shrug. "Why not?""Also, all my current merchandise will be sold with the shop if I agree to go with you.""Whatever, you can just make me more stuff."Running a finger along her chin, Rachel pauses for a moment. "Alright. Show me.""What, like, right now?"She nods.>Use an astral pearl and open up a gateway.>Tell her to wait till you are done shopping in town.
>>32063958>Use an astral pearl and open up a gateway."Sure whatever."Make sure we act like it's not big deal.Or at least try to, and fail terribly.
>>32063958>Use an astral pearl and open up a gateway.
>>32063958>Use an astral pearlWe've got two left, this means we can save the last one to collect the other 5 when we get back.Wait, it is 5 a month, right?
>>32063958>"What, like, right now?"Well alright drop the pearl on the floor and open it up in the back. Say you actually don't need to sell your shop. You can just come back here via this portal anytime.
>>32063958>>Use an astral pearl and open up a gateway.
>>320640078 a month now. And we got a few more on completing takeover.
>>32063958>Use an astral pearl and open up a gateway.I guess?
>>32064007It's 8We have 6 right now
>>32063958>Use an astral pearl and open up a gateway.I guess she won't just come with us across the sea and wait a few weeks for us to make our cave a natural gateway for us to our plane.
>>32063724>>32063728T-thanks>>32063790I figured I needed some way of giving things a sense of scope.>>32063958>make her waitWe got to show that we are the dominant force in dis relationship.
>>32064046>>32064048Oh fuck you're right, I forgot that we got a ton when we took that last altar. Neat.
Alrighty. I shall write.
quick poll how many people here are avoiding studying for finals?
>>32064389I'm avoiding a paper for a final tomorrow.
>>32064389I'm trying to study at the same time.And failing horribly. I am getting nothing done.
>>32064389Me. I get really scared because studying reminds me that I have finals and if I fuck up I've ruined my life forever, so I try not to think about it at all and do so by avoiding studying altogether.
>>32064389We don't have finals in Germany, but I do have two presentations to hold tomorrow.
>>32064492>We don't have finals in GermanyIf I could punch you through the internet I would.
>>32064389This is what I was expecting.
>>32064389I finished my finals already. Go me.
>>32064520>implying having shit spread out throughout the year isn't just as bothersome in a different way
You fumble around in a pack, pulling a pearl out. "You got a back room?" Rachel nods, jerking a thumb behind her at a door. "Neat. You don't even have to close up shop, then.""What?" You ignore the question and walk through the door. It's a rather spacious storage room, with plenty of stockpiled weapons. Here's hoping this will work in a way that doesn't completely wreck her shop... You toss an astral pearl up, it turns into light and fading sparkles. A low rumbling is heard, and the flagstones of her store room start to bend and break, as a small door sized cave rips out of the ground, glimmering with crystal. "Oh god what did you do to my shop""Woooaaah, I saw the turtles, but I'm still not used to this stuff, Shax." She never calls you boss."Come on in, Rachel. And I guess you to Allonces I guess since I can't think of a reason to leave you behind I guess." You grumble as you open up the door. A cool breeze meets you as you both walk into a cave, glowing softly with shimmering moss. You hear a whistle as you walk out of the catch to see a long, flat beach. A massive ocean glimmers in the distance, its calm waves reflecting a hundred hues of light.Allonces whistles in appreciate as you trundle through the pure white sand. Tiny crystal turtles crawl all over the beach and stone lizards with crystals in them skitter here and there, and you managed to pass the willpower check to not just lay down in the sand, kick your feet, and play with them to the sound of rolling waves.
>>32064547>implying we don't as well in addition to finals.
Eventually you make it to your giant crystal fortress, open up the doors and lead a gawking Rachel and Allonces to the top floor, where several roaring furnaces are waiting, ready. You tuck your thumbs in the waist of your shirt and look at Rachel. "So, I don't know anything about forges. Is this a good one?""Yes.""Neat. Does it pass your standards?""Yes.""Cool, so you're hired?""Yes.""Alright!" You pump a fist. New recruit! "Anyway, this place is permanently connected to your shop now, so you should be good to go? Just, uh, lock the door or whatever."What now?>Ask about her enchantment capablities, bring up the various weapons you have as targets.>Get back to town, maybe do some shopping?
>>32064563This guy gets it. Fucking labs. Its bad enough I just had tests three weeks ago.
>>32064587>Ask about her enchantment capablities, bring up the various weapons you have as targets.We need our crew kitted out.
>>32064587>>Get back to town, maybe do some shopping?Maybe a crossbow we can use to fire our grappling hook with...
>>32064587>Ask about her enchantment capabilities, bring up the various weapons you have as targets.
>>32064587>Ask about her enchantment capablities, bring up the various weapons you have as targets.new party member must exploit
>>32064587>Just, uh, lock the door or whatever.Noice.>Ask about her enchantment capablities, bring up the various weapons you have as targets.
So we can set up a fast-travel system with these?Neat.>>32064587>Go back to townWe can get EVERYONE'S gear enchanted in bulk once we're back.
>>32064587>Ask about her enchantment capablities, bring up the various weapons you have as targets.
>>32064643We're just asking
>>32064587>Ask about her enchantment capablities, bring up the various weapons you have as targets.Out sword could use a little zazz. And I guess or crew. Enchanted brass knuckles are one thing I can think of.
>>32064587>Ask about her enchantment capablities, bring up the various weapons you have as targets.Perhaps discount?!
>>32064587>Tell her to feel free to work on enchanting things. We don't know the first thing about enchants so just leave it to her>No slacking off though.>Also, she can use the library too if she wants. She seems like the type to enjoy ancient books with ancient knowledge.
>>32064587I'm half tempted to have Shax appear as a Cameo in the tabletop game I'm running right now, because goddamn this goblin is ridiculous.
>>32064733>>32064733She is the kind of character that would make a great and fun NPC.
>>32064689The brass knuckles would be a good thing for Brokagh, so he'd be able to punch things even better that way.
Got a good idea of what to write I suppose.Writing!
>>32064587Introduce our servants to our raid members!
For the record, when we get back, should we set up portals to the home base and our crew's base, then fortify with our laser turtles and a lizard lackey, or just one and conserve a pearl for the month?
>>32064976We have 4 (i think. we really should keep track of this in shax's sheet Chief.) pearls right now. So we can easily spend enough to make a nice cave/gate and summon some turtles as guardians.We should also spend some pearls next month to summon turtles on our beach. That way, they can defend our realm against intruders that would come from any of the gates.
>>32065040Our beach is full of both turtles and sneaky stone lizards. Also little stone birds that we didn't get much information about.
>>32065040That's probably a good plan. Instead of trying to defend each gate separately, centralise the defense within the plane itself.
>>32065040We had six and just used one so now we have 5
Rachel is still staring at the forgeroom, so you clear your throat to try and get her attention, "Alright so, what kinda enchantments can you do? You said you knew some things about them...?" Allonces seems to have disappeared. You assume she is wandering your sweet palace.The steward shows up, "And who are your guests, master?" He says it in a tone dripping with disapproval."Oh, this is Rachel. She's a smith or something. I was showing her the forge." You wave at her, she glances at the servant, then back to the forge, then whips her head back to the steward. Since he is some kinda weird lizard person, you can sorta get it. He gives her a quick bow."Welcome. PERHAPS next time the master would be so GOOD as to INFORM me of your visit, so I could adequately prepare for your arrival? Yes?" Oh no, you hurt his feelings!You clap your hands in front of you apologetically, "Sorry!" Oh crap, Allonces is here, too, "Also, there is a bratty elf walking around. She's my guest, too.""Oh, the butler has met her already, I assure you," Your steward says, sternly. "She has commandeered his services for the room she has claimed." Wasted no time getting comfortable, you see.After pleasantries, Rachel summarizes her skills: Weapon quality determines the level of enchantment she can put on it. Most weapons can only handle simple things, like keenness, durability, a minor flame or ice enchantment, etc. Higher quality weapons can get more extensive enchantments. Shax's sword, for instance, can handle several high end enchantments due to its general quality. So can the oversized tetsubo.>Neat. Collect Allonces and get back to business of getting across the ocean.>Leave her a weapon and name an enchantment to be put on it, and drag Allonces' butt back to town so you can get back to the mainland.
>>32065151Quick, go make sure Allonces hasn't claimed OUR bedroom!
>>32065151>Neat. Collect Allonces and get back to business of getting across the ocean.Yeah.
Can we enchant Fetid's bow? Enhanced backrow support, dudes.
I thought they were couldn't stay when we were not there? If thats not the case then >Neat. Collect Allonces and get back to business of getting across the ocean.
>>32065151>Neat. Collect Allonces and get back to business of getting across the ocean.When we get back home lets enchant the crap out of our sword.
>>32065151>Neat. Collect Allonces and get back to business of getting across the ocean
>>32065068They are not big fighter turtle tank ones and servant lizards to my understanding. Just cute crystal turtles and lizards.
>>32065151Geeze, Allonces, claiming a room already?Let me guess, it's the one closest to ours.
>>32065151Do we have any of our Raid Group's weapons around? Getting her started on enchanting a bow for Fetidclaw would be a good idea. Maybe an enchant that lets her ignore cover if she doesn't already, or arrows pierce through enemies, or split into multiple arrows mid-flight.
>>32065294They can now that the whole place is up and running. Couldn't while you were making it.Anyway, writing.
>>32065151Don't forget to tell servants that Akkonces does NOT have a room in here.Rachel is free to use forges and library though.
Also tell her not to mess with the laser turtles their mine.Make sure allonces's room is nowhere close to ours.
>>32065323>split into multiple arrows mid-flightGive him a bow of war you say?>>32065314Pretty sure they are there as well from last thread.
>>32065151>>Neat. Collect Allonces and get back to business of getting across the ocean.Tell her to get some general weapons for the whole raiding group with some mediocre enchantments. Swords, daggers, clubs, axes etc. in different sizes and shapes. Lets just equip everyone with some decent gear then we can think of specialized gear.
>>32065151>turn our sword into a sick E-guitar
So what are some cool enchantments for our sword? Icy Burst?
Maybe make the tetsubo do stuff like enough sonic damage for mini earthquakes?
>>32065430Tell her to start pumping out decent Mook weapons? I like it
>>32065483We should ask for a list of enchantments
>>32065435Superior design right here.
>>32065515We would promptly ignore it anyway and ask for something turtle related to enchant our BAS.
>>32065553Is that some sort of Guitar Batleth?
>>32065430Yeah this sounds like a much better place to start than random enchantment on some equipment. I think it is too late though, votes are already in.
Ask them what they want cause the boss is nice.
>>32065430Let's have her do this while we head back
>>32065515If our Sword isn't already able to cut ghosts and other incorporeal creatures in half without any trouble we should get Ghost Touch on it. Maybe enchants that let us swing it faster, or steal the life from the things we kill.
You let your steward give her the tour as you go hunting Allonces, leaving instructions to just make some low end enchanted equipment for now. A stone lizard servant takes you to Allonces' room, where she is kicking her legs on a bed, eating donuts and reading some kind of book. What the hell. "Get up, we're moving out?""Can't I just, like, wait here till you're done crossing to the mainland and make an entrance over there?" She could."You're a member of my team, and you're gonna have to work. Sorry." You cross your arms and give her your best 'I'm the boss' stare. She groans and rolls off the best, following you on your way out of the fort. Shortly thereafter, you arrive in through the beach and cave, and head to the gate where you were going to meet up with the rest of the crew.They greet you with stories about what they were up to. The fact you recruited a smith beats their stories though, you're pretty sure. Especially one with magic enchanting abilities.Before long you're on the beach, trying to commune with the sea mother, feeling the cold tide wash over you once more."Oh, hey Shax. What're you doin' here?" the familiar voice rumbles out."Hey mom, can I get a ride? I gotta get across the ocean." You ask nonchalantly."Sure, but you're going to have to have to clear the way a bit. There is a small shrine to a good aligned sea deity near where you're at. Smash it up and I'll be able to find you, alright?""Sure thing!"What's the plan boss?>Split up and look for it.>Have Bear, Fetid, and Brokagh scout out for it while you, Sitri, and Allonces get comfortable.
>>32065700>Split up and look for it.We can't just take it easy after we scolded Allonces for it!
>>32065700>Have Bear, Fetid, and Brokagh scout out for it while you, Sitri, and Allonces get comfortable.We're totally looking for it too. Really. Definitely.
>>32065700>Split up and look for it.Shax is running this shit.
>>32065700>Split up and look for it.All business.
>>32065700>>Have Bear, Fetid, Brokagh AND ALLONCES scout out for it while you and Sitri get comfortable.Because she wanted to get away from work earlier. That kinda attitude calls for more work.
>>32065700>Plit up and look for itThis isn't the time to be lazing about
>>32065700>Split up and look for it.We're the boss, so that means we can't be lazy. And tell Allonces something similar. If elves are top shit, then they have to prove it.
>>32065700>good aligned sea deityThat won't do at all. >Have Bear, Fetid, and Brokagh scout out for it while you, Sitri, and Allonces get comfortable.No reason for people who aren't good at scouting to go scouting. Let's conserve our strength for when smashing things with a sword is needed. Delegation is part of being the boss. I read that in a book somewhere.
>>32065700>Split up and look for it.We're the Boss, we aren't gonna slack off on this. The shrine is probably nearby the beach, so we only have 2 directions we have to really check, so split into two groups. Have Bearbreath with one group, he'll turn into an eagle and get a bird's eye view to help find the shrine, and Fetidclaw with the other since Fetid is good at finding stuff. Make sure the group knows that if they find the shrine, but it looks to be overly dangerous to contact the other group for reinforcements.
>>32065830That's a pretty good plan.
>>32065700Sea Mom is best god. She's happy to see us, easy to work with, and even gave us something fun to do.
>>32065830That is a good plan! Have a boss point.Writing.
>>32065675Enchant of returning. It always comes back to our hand if we throw it.It'll be awesome. Probably.
>>32065949That's our first Boss Point in forever...Yay.
>>32061492>>8/32 FMMM exp, 3/3 Tidal PointsWhatever happened to our progress being barred, anyway?
>>32065985Well they are tied to tg being clever, so what do you expect.
>>32066128It's poor habit to insult yourself.
>>32066190Only if you are wrong.
"Hey, let's split up. The people best at finding stuff is Bearbreath and Fetid, so you go in seperate parties." They nod. Brokagh ain't even offended, "We gotta find a lame sea deity shrine and smash it up. If you find it, just smash it up. If it looks tough, go get the rest of us before smashing it up. No one is mad at us here, so don't bother sneaking, just get a move on!" And they do. You go with Fetidclaw, because Bearbreath is the second greatest fighter (after you), and you wanna keep combat strength even. It is you, Allonces, and Fetid in this party. Bear, Bro, and Sitri in the other.You both start combing the beach in opposite directions. It takes maybe a few hours, and the sun has well and truly set at this point, but you see a small shrine, and three ape men at it. One person is in the middle meditating, and the other two are cleaning up and chatting.They're pretty big, but you've fought bigger. You're not sure how tought they'll be. You don't see any weapons laying around, and they look lightly armed."Hey, Allonces, you got any ranged attacks? Some sorta long range spell or something?" She looks at you."Nope, most of my stuff is tied to my spear." What do you want to do?>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.>Go get the others. You might put them on alert trying to get away, but whatever.
>>32066298>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.Cuttle em. Show em which god is the best.
>>32066298>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.Murdertimes
>>32066298>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.We can totally take three monkeys. They don't even have oversized weapons.
>>32066298>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.For Sea Mom!
>>32066298They can escape if they want, we just want to smash the shrine. I say we get the others, smash the shrine, and immediately get on the horrifying sea creature that sea mom is sending us.
>>32066298Can we laser them? I remember we got a gook on lasers. Unless that requires pearls in which case >Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.
>>32066298>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.SHINY!
Guy praying might be a cleric. We should probably krump him first.>>32066360>laser gooksHow horrible.
>>32066298>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.
>>32066298>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few. Start with the middle one fetid takes other one on the left an allones takes the one on the right coordinated attack. Your such a boss today
>>32066298>Blitz>Use a tidal point on boosting our armorlet's mess with these guys morale by showing them who they are dealing with.
>>32066298>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.Three monkeys isn't a big threat. We can handle this, and we should probably take them out quickly before they can raise an alarm, possibly get reinforcements, or anything like that.Have Allonces and Fetid walk up to the shrine like normal folk while we sneak around behind them, they shouldn't suspect anything from Allonces and Fetid just walking along the beach but our sword might draw attention. Then once we all get close we unleash the slaughter.
That's a pretty impossible to beat advantage. Writing!
we should try to be really sneaky but screw up and give a war cry of "For Sea Mom".
>>32066508Its mother's day after all. Give sea mom the gift of gratuitous violence.
>>32066040We used an ability. We hadn't done so before.Speaking of which, we're full. We should be prepared to spend a point here since we'll probably get it back for doing Sea Mom's bidding anyway.
Sorry about the delay, something came up. Getting back to writing now.
>>32066298>>Blitz em. No point in getting the others for this few.Shax goes in and attacks, then goes into Box Turtle defensive stance. Fetidclaw puts some arrows into the meditating person, Allonces covers our back in case something tried to flank us.
Alright! Just three ape men? You've handled much larger groups than this. You nod at Allonces, getting her to charge with you as you both run down the clearing towards the shrine. You hear the whistle of an arrow flying through the air as it heads to an ape man who... knocks the arrow out of the air? Didn't you see Brokagh do something similar? Oh crap. These guys are like him, aren't they?When you get near one, you swing a sword in a horizontal arc at a monkey man who jumps up, lands on your sword, runs up it, and kicks you in the face. Ouch!Allonces isn't having much luck either. You reorient yourself, and enter a more defensive stance. So swinging wide like that isn't going to do you much good... You see a flash of movement out of the corner of your eye and barely roll away in time to not get your head punched. Jeez, they're quick. Allonces' dark chains have managed to tie a guy up, and she skewers him straight through the stomach.Ohhhh man. Allonces took someone out before you did? That's just depressing.>You've been defeated! Take 15 sanity points worth of damage, and lose four ranks of morale.This isn't the time to be outclassed! It's time to rock! You dash at a guy, bringing your sword down in an overhead slash, and as he dodges, you tuck the sword in a lance like stance, muscles straining as you try to correct your sword's course until you plow right into him. That's more like it! When you turn around, you see the third monkey lying face down on the ground with arrows in his back. Time to smash up the temple!As soon as your vandalism is done, you head back to the beach, sending Fetid to get the others. A writing grey mass appears on the ocean, some distance away, and it opens a horrifying mouth filled with writing spikes. Gross. Gross. Gross. Well, time to get in, you suppose!
That's it for today! You receive:>20/48 BtB exp>16/48 MSiF exp>22/48 CyRCTHaM exp>20/32 FMMM exp, 3/3 Tidal Points>You feel like you're on the breakthrough of something...Sorry for the short thread! I have all sorts of stuff to do in the evening today. Many apologies!I hope you enjoyed reading and playing through it, though! I'm pretty sure the next day I can run is wendesday, but we'll see. Thank you all so much! Hope to see you next time.I need to do some upkeep and maintenance on those pastebins, so hopefully I can get to that in the next two days.Oh, I know! Why not a Q&A session? I can't give writing my full attention, but I don't mind answering some questions every now and then. So if you want to know anything, ask away!
>>32067037Well, huh. Monks. Didn't see that one coming.
>>32067097How hyped are you for the Caelum patch?
>>32067097Can we get our holy shortsword enchanted with a skill enchantment? Fuck training with it.
>>32067120 Whats the Caelum patch?
>>32067097>Oh, I know! Why not a Q&A session?Was there a chance to hook up Fetidclaw and Allonces before we went to this awful continent? I mean when he was still male and moping about his newfound and even more newlost love and Allonces was thinking of starting a family.I would've suggested it, but wasn't online at the time since it was the middle of the night for me. I thought of it while reading the thread in the archives.
>>32067037>You've been defeated! Take 15 sanity points worth of damage, and lose four ranks of morale.At least its not a bad end!
When can we wield the sword without the magic bracelet?
>>32067097it's fine. Good night Chief. Going to look this up in the archives: What's your favourite work of fiction? Doesn't matter what medium it is deliviered through, anything goes.
>>32067178Wasn't he an old gnoll man? So not her type.
>>32067185What would a bad end look like for Shax? Being adopted into a good home?
>>32067097When did Allonces get so competent?
>>32067202So what? He could've stopped moping and Allonces would've gotten her family. Everyone could've gotten what they wanted and been happy! It's simple (goblin) logic.Captcha: reasoning rvaged
>>32067211Being invented into a family of Allonceses.
>>32067265I wonder if Shax should pay Allonces's family a visit.
>>32067037I DONE TOLD YOU ALL WE SHOULD GET HELP
>>32067097Thanks for running!Did you commission any more character art?
>>32067211Shax being domesticated is the cutest thing ever. She'd be like the little lovable pet NPC of an adventuring party.>>32067097So, can we make a bitching crystal tower on top of our old raid base next thread?Please say yes
>>32067281Maybe dragon lady will reassign us to the elf forest and we'll get to meet them!
>>32067097I remember you saying we were like 1 to 2 fifths through the story or something a few threads to go, but I don't entirely see something like a main plot going on. Shax kind of just coasts along doing what she wants and occasionally following orders.Is there some kind of thing that's gonna happen that will actually put an end goal into the quest? Does it have to do with Dragon and Drow Lady's plan or that prophecy Axe Girl mentioned?
>>32067295>Shax being domesticated is the cutest thing ever. She'd be like the little lovable pet NPC of an adventuring party.Someone should do a writeup of that.Or alternately we could undomesticate our axe-wielding rival.
>>32067243She seems to be mostly interested in elves of the dark variety. And fetid seems to be interested in harpy's. Just because two people are lonely it doesn't mean they are suited for each other.>>32067303Pretty sure bringing a raid back to their place will not be a good first impression.
>>32067341>Pretty sure bringing a raid back to their place will not be a good first impression.Allonces is pretty FUCK YOU ELF-DAD already. No biggie.
>>32067295There's already been consensus to linking it to our brand new demiplane, so there's that, at least.Anyone else tempted to try and grab the darkness thrones in the distant future because why not?
>>32067332Finishing the invasion Ascending Becoming #1 Sword Saint flooding the world into tropical island chainsCompleting the skill treesSidequests
So what sort of person are you guys looking for to use the Character Point on? I don't want it to be something we sit on until the end of the quest and blow it on some schmuck just for the sake of using it.It'd help if we could decide on some semi-concrete traits so we're all on the same page.
>>32067265>inventedWhat the hell brain? Adopted. It is adopted. Seriously...what the fuck?
>>32067295>So, can we make a bitching crystal tower on top of our old raid base next thread?That's ridiculously conspicuous.Let's do it. It'll be like ordering sword saint XP on delivery.
>>32067281Allonces' family is almost definitely much better than a "family of Alloncesses" though.
>>32067120Pretty hyped! Caelum is a joke. My favorite factions are:EA - Hinnom, super combatants are too fun.MA - Bandar LogLA - AgarthaBandar Log is probably my favorite, though!>>32067173At this point, Shax's base competence is more than an enhancement can give, probably.>>32067178Fetid might have turned to her in desperation, but gnolls aren't particularly her type.>>32067197Oh jeez, you aren't swole enough for that yet. Belt of +str or something, then sure.>>32067198Favorite work of ALL fiction? That's hard to narrow down. I watched the original transformers movie every day for like two years of my childhood life. I really like the original gundam movies. I read pulp fantasy addictively. I dunno.>>32067211Death!>>32067213When you taught her magic which she is naturally good at.>>32067291I haven't! I was going to commission Decu to draw everyone in swimsuits, but Sitri would look pretty bad in one, and Bearbreath is a gnoll. I was gonna put Fetid in swimtrunks and bandages on top. Brokagh in speedo.>>32067295If you study more about your powers you can!>>32067332Nothing that will happen and be like YOU ARE NOW IN THE END GAME. I just have a general idea of where I'd like to stop. You're about half way there.
>>32067421Dragon Lady, obviously.She turns us into a Dracomagus, we turn her with a character point, and nobody has any idea who is on top in that relationship.
>>32067436Heh, now you've gone and reminded me of the plan that anon had for our crystal raid tower. That was a funny pastebin.
>>32067457>EA - Hinnom, super combatants are too fun.>MA - Bandar Log>LA - AgarthaPretty good. I prefer MA Agartha's Unlimited Statue Works though.
>>32067457>death as a bad endWell obviously, but surely there are other bad ends like ending up some adventuring party's pet.
>>32067457...How swole is Shax without the bracelet?Does lifting with the bracelet on increase muscle mass as if there was no bracelet?
>>32067457>Death!Shax wouldn't die, even if you killed her.
>>32067512And if you did kill her, she wouldn't even die from it.
>>32067516What if you do both at the same time?
>>32067497>other bad ends like ending up some adventuring party's pet.But that's a Good End?
>>32067497Shax would fit right in with an adventuring party, though.As long as Shax has the ability to screw around and do what she wants I think she'd be happy.
>>32067536She double dies, cancelling out to zero and leaving her still alive.
>>32067599She'd have a damn good party if she went back to camp to grab Whoop and the dwarves. They were the only cool people we left behind, right?
>>32067735The trolls are kinda cool too. The treants we didn't know well yet, but they seemed cool. Honestly we got a lot of misfits that would make a cool party.
>>32067779Didn't we get a shipment of kobolds too? I wouldn't mind the smartest one getting to tag along as a party mascot.
I want to act really serious when we return so everyone thinks we've undergone some hardcore training.Then we go back to regular Shax mode after an hour or two.
>>32067497I have a .txt file that is sheer stream of consciousness brainstorming about this quest.One early route you guys skipped out on was "raid is completely defeated, shax gets taken by a paladin for rehabilitation, becomes paladin"That's all the notes for that thing. I do most of the thinking off the cuff while consulting the .txt file.>>32067504I don't try to keep track of things relating to reality. So let's say, sure she develops muscle. She is pretty much real toned right now.>>32067512She can die, especially if you kill her.
>>32067875I want to show up while our guys are fighting some kind army and we just sweep in and crystal spear the biggest guy there and sweep that shit.
>>32067920If Shax dies, does her soul go to Sea Mom?
>>32067960Her soul gets eaten by the Hungerer.
>>32067960It might go to the plain of light now.
>>32067920>Shax is RIIIIPPPEDYes perfect
>>32067977Oh. We might need to stop the Hungerer then.
>>32067977Can we kill The Hungerer and become the new Goblin god?
>>32067977I've been saying we should take care of that fucker.We'd make a better god for the Goblins to worship.
>>32067977Can we fight the Hungerer?
>>32068008We have a cast-iron stomach. We only need more eating abilities before we can eat his ass.
>>32068008>>32067994if by fight and stop you mean get eaten, sure
>>32068007>>32067994>>32068006>>32068008New Goal Aquired.
>>32068007First we become Chief Shax.Then we become God Shax.All dead goblins get their souls sealed in the form of crystaline sealife that wander the abyssal ocean forever, occasionally rising up to murder any intruders to Shax's realm.
>>32068063Nah, all dead goblins get reincarnated as sea goblins.
>>32068057Well, we were already planning to become the Chief of Goblins. God is just the logical next step.
>>32068053So, you're saying we should become the ruler of a few other planes first.Then fight the Hungerer.We could become the new goblin god.We would be called "Boss".
>>32068090>other goblins start calling us "Boss Mom"
>>32068057>>32068063>>32068089>>32068090>>32068117>>32067977You down Chief? We'll put in the time and effort if you will.
>>32068147If we got a Destiny Point from fighting Tetsubo chick this is what I want to spend it on.
>>32068192Yeah, where is that destiny point?
>>32068192Might need more than just that to kill a God and replace him.Good goal to start saving up for though
>>32068192>>32068198um no let's not try to dethrone gods just because they exist mmmkay? We gonna go after sea mom too?
>>32068226Well, we should probably spend the destiny point on usurping the current goblin chief first, then reduce the elf lady and dragon lady to "manageable" but not entirely dethroned. THEN we should go after the Hungerer.
>>32068226What, no.Why would we do that, Sea Mom's chill.
>>32068226But I don't think Shax really wants to be devoured when she dies.And it kinda sucks that other goblins get devoured when they die as well. Sea Mom is cool. Hungerer is a dick.
>>32068226Dude, he'll eat our soul if we don't.We kinda don't really have a choice.
>>32068255Why do you want to dethrone dragon lady? She's cool.
>>32068226Hungerer a shit.Boss Mom Shax is best god.
>>32068226Hungerer is a big jerk who eats goblin souls and demand they worship him.He's a stupid god and Shax has literally always thought so, go check the first few threads when he was first brought up.
>>32068255no but why do we want to go after him in the first place?>>32068275Hungerer isn't? We've never talked to the guy.>>32068276>>32068284>Implying Sea Mom doesn't do something equally horrible, or worse, to the souls she gets. This is the god who wants to drown the entire world guys. Her afterlife is probably perpetual drowning or something.
>>32068317I said "manageable" and "not entirely dethroned."
>>32068317I think he meant more of separate ourselves from them tan to dethrone them.Reduce their power over us and establish ourselves independently.Getting "You would have a Dark Queen" and "Bite the Hand that Feeds You" should be a big step towards that.
>>32068215>>32068255What?All the destiny point does is put us on a certain plotline. Last one we got we used for the dragon lady to take interest in us as a Champion.Also, we already unlocked the goblin chief side quest.
>>32068327>Hungerer isn't? We've never talked to the guy.HE EATS OUR SOULS
>>32068357I don't want Shax to be independent if all she's going to do is give us sweet sidequests. Shax can't find sidequests on her own!
>>32068362We unlocked the chief sidequest as just being plausible. With a destiny point, we could gain a greater advantage.
>>32068379So? Maybe his stomach is like goblin heaven. You don't know so don't judge.
>>32068357But Dragon lady is chill and she may be a path for us to live for a very long time.
>>32068379Go ahead and ask sea mom what she does to the souls she gets before you start sperging out there, mmmkay
>>32068382>Shax can't find sidequests on her own!She literally always does.
>>32068362Oh, i forgot about that.Sure, let's set upon the path towards becoming a god.>>32068382She has found all of her sidequests on her own so far.Plus, if we're gonna become a god we can't have drowlady and dragonlady over us all the time.
>>32068401Destiny points don't do that.They're for picking a plotline to follow. Not for creating some kind of advantage.
>>32068406We're already technically immortal from age death.
>>32068406And Godhood won't accomplish that?
>>32068452Having a powerful dragon on our side can't hurt.
>>32068404Then that isn't eating them, eating implies digestion.>>32068411If it's horrible then we'll just have to convince her not to be so mean. But she doesn't seem mean, it's probably not too bad.
>>32068471Obviously, but at some point we're gonna have to establish our independence.We can remain allies.
>>32068468I'm not saying it won't but getting godhood might get us killed anyway.
>>32068480> But she doesn't seem meanOnce again, she wants to drown the entire world.Although, I guess we could pray to the Hungerer and ask him to stop eating goblin souls.
>>32068503Why do we need independence will we even get anything out of it?
Dragon Lady is cool and all but Shax has never had a reason to really folow her except because the Fouldrinker clan was making the Goblins work for her. That's it.I don't care about usurping her or anything but Shax want's to be the boss and just do what she wants. Working under someone conflicts with that. Right now she's gaining the power and influence where she can do that.She's eventually going to graduate from minionhood to her own faction. We can be allied with Dragon Lady but we can't stay underneath her.
>>32068540I'm so glad someone else want to raise an army and go independent.
>>32068540That sounds boring. I'd rather be a dracomagus.
>>32068533You really think the dark lady chick is just gonna let one of her mooks become a god?
>>32068602That sounds even more boring.
You know, there's also the issue of Shax's parentage.We might be somebody important's kid who got mixed up with mindflayers.
>>32068597>>32068540Lot's of people do.>>32068602Hell no
>>32068623Mindflayers don't reproduce like that.
>>32068623Speaking of which we should go get undeadsquidface to join us now.
>>32068644I didn't say they did. I'm implying somebody got captured, mind flayed, and then raped by goblins.
>>32068602Why are you so dead set on making a girl who loves being the boss someone's minion?
>>32068688Why are you so fixated on being the biggest boss? Middle-management is a fine goal to aspire to.
>>32068724It's the most boring goal to aspire to ever. The only reason I can think of to even want it in this kind of situation is because the dragon lady is your waifu.Shax was just a mook who didn't really have a choice in her lot in life but now she has a lot of power and influence and really enjoys being a leader. Staying as is when the world's opening up to her is honestly not at all that compelling. I'd rather play a more active protagonist rather than just stick to corporate ladder climbing.The funnest thing about Shax is when she runs off to do her own thing and impresses everyone rather than do what she's told/supposed to.
Less talk about godhood and more talk about the important issues.How are we going to lay out our super base we make when we get back to the mainland?Pools everywhere?
>>32068837Shax is the Boss.End of Story.
>>32068903We could just sit in one place for a week and let it form itself
>>32068317>>32068382>>32068406>>32068533>>32068602>>32068724These aren't even arguments. It's just a bunch of variations of "nuh-uh, we should stay the dragon lady because"
>>32068837>The only reason I can think of to even want it in this kind of situation is because the dragon lady is your waifu.Shit, I've been found out.
>>32068903I really feel like a tower just isn't us.Maybe a cave system? with a lake?
>>32069078It'll be big, oversized and flashy. Like our sword and fighting style.And if it isn't a massive gaudy tower, how will we attract adventurer parties for sword-saint EXP?
>>32069051Do you also have a femdom or master/servant fetish or something?Because you don't have to be the dragon lady's minion to waifu her.
>>32069026The dragon(and drow)lady(ies) are pretty cool, but neither have earned, nor will they earn, our undying loyalty.We've earned everything ourself, including minions and powers.They'll remain friends and allies but not superiors
>>32069107We get SS EXP by killing other sword saints, not by killing random adventurers.And all the other SSs know exactly where we are at all times.
>>32069125Pretty true, we've actually helped them more than they've helped us.>>32069107But our natural realm is all watery and kinda dimmer, with moss and crystal. Closer to a Watery Crystal Cave than a shining Crystal Tower.
>>32069125Well, the sword and the means to use it sort of fell into our lap over being earned; but that was because of a mix up, squid face being a bro, and that dwarf chick helping us use it; not any of these guys.
>>32069209Exactly.And we've done a shit ton for them. fucking up the manderlin plains, starting an alliance with the knolls, Stopping this ritual, and other shit too.
>>32069125Um why would they have paid attention to us in the first place?
>>32069112Maaaybe. I'm not interested in /u/ shenanigans, regardless.Realistically, as long as we don't try to kill dragon lady and she remains interested in us, positively or negatively, I'll be content.
>>32069259>starting an alliance with the knollsAlso with the kua-toa who believed we were the blade.
>>32069263Because we're strong and did a lot for them.
>>32069295Isn't that why the dragon lady started to pay attention to us? I mean maybe up until that point we hadn't done a lot in terms of the entire war. We did pick the easy job, maybe some serious shit was going down on the other fronts.
Shax is so impulsive, always acting on a whim... What'll se do once goblin mating season kicks in?On that note, who's best girl (or boy reincarnated as girl for a certain someone) in the quest?
>>32069384That one succubutt/dracomagus chick basically said that the other fronts weren't doing very well and the only reason everything was still going smoothly was because the reinforcements who were supposed to be sent to the Manderlin Plains after we died like the mooks we were supposed to be got redirected to the other fronts.
>>32069423Shouldn't it be best boy? That was lizard boy. RIP.
>>32069384And?The fact is that we've done lots for them and they've done almost nothing for us. Everything to benefit us has either been chance or through our own actions.The only thing they gave us is the goblin mooks and the mounts. That's like less than 1/3rd our forces
>>32069423Shax has expressed nothing but disgust towards the idea of breeding and I don't think mating season is a thing.Also, I've liked all the girls so far and they would all equally be the best if it wasn't for Shax being my waifu.
>>32069423Shax won't be having sex, she's too innocent for sex.
>>32069450Dragon lady gave us a sweet opportunity to take over some planes of light and is about to give us three bitchin' artifacts for our trouble.What kind of artifacts do you want?
>>32069423>Shax discovers boysI wouldn't mind some innocent crushing and dating.
>>32069423>Goblin mating seasonNO.>Best girlShax.Followed by goatlady.Followed by Shax.Then Bearbreath (He has to have at least one female form)Then Sea-MomThen Dragon LadyThen FetidclawThen axegirlThen the dwarf woman.Then Snacky the troll.Then Allonces
>>32069485Shax pls, you know Allonces is awesome. Stop denying it.
>>32069428Yes so once we did a good job the dragon lady gave us an opportunity to show we can be really good and is probably going to start giving us some sweet opportunities.>>32069450You don't shower your mooks with gifts unless they start doing really well. Now we are and she is paying attention to us.
>>32069485Allonces is fourth best girl after Shax, Dragon Lady, and Axegirl.I don't think Sea-Mom counts.
>>32069473None of that is a gift though.If she has given us those three altars and some artifacts and said "here go fuck shit up" then it'd be different.But right now she's just using us to do her work in exchange for scraps.
>>32069423Shax is at the top.Second tier is Sitri, Dragon Lady, Allonces and Axe girl
>>32069481Pretty sure she knows about boys. Goblins seem the type to start early.
So if Shax were to date a boy, what kind of boy would she date?
>>32068008You can certainly attempt to if you somehow got to the goblin afterlife.>>32068198The destiny point only shows up when there is an opportunity to alter destiny!>>32068452Maybe not 'immortal' but close enough.
>>32069481>>32069552Shax should've discovered boys a while ago. But she seems to find the whole dating/breeding thing to be uninteresting/disgusting.
>>32069579We have more important things to worry about
>>32069579Some people are late bloomers.
>>32069481>I wouldn't mind some innocent crushingShax has been admiring Bearbreath for a while now.
>>32069562Eh, at this point I really don't give a fuck.We've gone this long and apparently hit the halfway point of the quest and there hasn't been any spark or interesting dynamic that has shown up between a male character that feels like it could become a romantic relationship.
>>32069485Alright, that was worded a bit poorly, so how's this:What would you do when Shax says she feels the funnies for you?
>>32069579You can discover boys and still find dating uninteresting Especially when they are goblins.>>32069604She has been admiring how he is the best underling not that he is hot. For one thing I imagine a hyena face would make it hard to make out.
>>32069604That doesn't look like crushing to me.
>>32069617Most guys we've been around aren't that good looking. And the one guy who Chief allegedly was going to have as the love interest was a dubious vampire.
>>32069673>And the one guy who Chief allegedly was going to have as the love interest was a dubious vampire.I'm pretty sure that was just a joke.
>>32069683I'd imagine so as well, but hey. You never know what a DM plans for.
>>32069683Suure, and cute lizard boy wasn't both cute and a lizard.
>>32069673That was a joke. Mostly. I have a hard time figuring out dudes Shax would even be interested in.Honestly, she'd probably dig the lizard guy the most. Ambitious, cute, not a push over, just weak enough for her to rescue, etc. Too bad she had to kill him!I don't know if I should make some sort of goofy cast of guys Shax would be into or not. As much as I joke about it, I don't really want an Otome Game Arc.
>>32069604Let's not complicate this quest
>>32069617>>32069673To be honest, out of the characters I've seen so far. I'd personally rather see Shax in a relationship with Sitri or Axe girl, even if that would take a lot of weird twists and turns to be possible. I don't want to man the /u/ boats but I just can't think of a guy character I want to see Shax with. I think Chief just does female characters better.
>>32069706Nah, leave the romance for another quest.
>>32069706Well, thems the breaks I guess.I wouldn't mind at least one possible boyfriend for Shax to at least try for.
>>32069706Please don't.Though since dragon lady seems to like cute boys, I could see her hooking Shax up with a small squad of her second-stringers.
>>32069706>>32069706Nah don't bother. The quest is refreshingly free of waifuing.
>>32069706Eh, maybe you can do something with that Shota puppet person.Personally, I don't see why you need to bother though. We're already this far in and I don't see the point of adding romance. It's just not Shax's thing.
>>32069706Please, we all know that Squid-Soon-to-be-Lichbro is Shax's soulmate. The age difference is probably too high for anything to actually happen between them this millennium, but after we achieve godhood I'm sure we'll get around to hanging out with him more.
