Alternate Universe Formal Wear Edition!You are Shax Bonemurder, Raid Leader in Transit! You haven't lead a raid in a while. You're not sure how many more you'll lead, actually. In fact, you're getting worried you'll die down here! The insides of a giant aquatic monster are pretty scary to get stuck in, especially when it has been for DAYS. Allonces was starting to freak out, cause she can't see in the dark like you, Bear, Bro, and Fetid can. Sitri doesn't mind the dark, so you had her sing Allonces to sleep.It's been pretty quiet since.>Shax's Stuff! So you can keep track: http://pastebin.com/U3hKZfAd>CURRENT ADVENTURE PARTY: http://pastebin.com/tZ3saVGK>ABILITY TREE: http://pastebin.com/aBfqv1vP>CHARACTER Point: 1>I'm the boss! Points: 2>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...Time passes, slowly. You wish you could teleport to your rad crystal place, but you're pretty sure you'd get teleported back into the middle of the ocean, making it not ideal. Sitri plays a lot of music, and tells a lot of stories, but it is still incredibly boring. After a couple more days of this, the creature opens its mouth and you step out onto a dark beach, Fetid carrying the doll and Brokagh carrying Allonces.It seems to be underground, but you're not familiar with this area of caves.What's the plan, boss?>Make a connection to your elemental plane.>Start scouting.>Let's just move down the caves as a group instead of taking it slow.
>>32123517>Start scouting.Do you wait for the days when I have an exam in the morning?
Time to return to minions.
>>32123569Yes.Actually I run on basically any day I have off and don't have plans with friends already.
>>32123517>You feel like you're on the breakthrough of something...
That is a pretty rough lead to beat.Guess I'll start writing!
"Bearbreath, turn into an eagle and scout around!" You point at him, commandingly using a stern voice. He calmly points at the ceiling. Oh right, cave. "I mean, turn into a bat! And scout!" He puts a finger on his chin and rubs it thoughtfully."Never tried that before. Honestly, I haven't studied one. Don't know how, yet. Got one handy?" You don't.Shrugging, "Alright, then. Guess we'll just have to do this normally. Brokagh and Fetid, scout ahead. Me, Bear, and his kitty will stay back with Sitri and lazy Allonces. Now let's all get a move on!" You have a hard time talking that long with your gruff leader voice, and you have to cough a bit at the end there.It's all clear in the caverns for a while, but you get a strange feeling that you're being followed.Occassionally Brokagh or Fetid will double back and give you a report. All clear. Where the heck are you? Sea Mom's navigational systems could use some work. Brokagh's best guess is you're in some offshoot of the underground kingdom, but he hasn't figured out where yet. He doesn't recognize any of the fungus or wildlife so far. And that itchy feeling on the back of your neck refuses to go away.Any time you try to see what's behind you, there doesn't seem to be anything there. If you don't get some action or SOMETHING soon, you're going to go crazy.>Wake Allonces up and get her to see if she can't cast some sorta trap spell behind you.>Get Bearbreath to do some sort of sneaky animal nonsense to see what is going on behind you.>Have Sitri pose provocatively to lure whoever is behind you out because who can resist that girl, really?I mean just look at her.
>>32123844Summon lizard dudes to watch our backs?
>>32123844>Wake Allonces up and get her to see if she can't cast some sorta trap spell behind you.Most likely to succeed.
Hey chief. Don't have anything fancy today, but here's a thing I gave up on.>shoot the dark with lasers
>>32123844>Have Sitri pose provocatively to lure whoever is behind you out because who can resist that girl, really?I mean just look at her.But in all seriousness, that first decision.>>32123873Eh, kind of seems like a waste of pearls.
>>32123844>Have Sitri pose provocatively to lure whoever is behind you out because who can resist that girl, really?I mean just look at her.
>>32123889>Eh, kind of seems like a waste of pearls.But they are permanent and can move from one area to another.
>>32123844Ask mom where the hell did she had us dropped. Mommy i am scared.
>>32123844>>Have Sitri pose provocatively to lure whoever is behind you out because who can resist that girl, really?I mean just look at her.
>>32123844Have sitri pose.
>>32123844>Wake Allonces up and get her to see if she can't cast some sorta trap spell behind you.
>>32123844>Shout hello to them. Maybe they are just shy.
>>32123889>>32123918>>32123976>>32123983/tg/ always going for the joke option.Which perfectly fits this quest. I approve.
>>32123844>>Have Sitri pose provocatively to lure whoever is behind you out because who can resist that girl, really?I mean just look at her.This is just too tempting.
>>32123844>>Wake Allonces up and get her to see if she can't cast some sorta trap spell behind you.
A voting war on this option? Really? Next vote breaks the tie.The first Sitri vote said Allonces in the real text, if you're skimming votes and wonder how its a tie.
>>32124058Maybe it isn't fair cause her name is shorter!Regardless, writing.
>>32124058Let's hope this works!So, let's hope whoever it is, they're female I guess.
>>32124137I doubt anyone could resist her... Apart from Shaxxx obviously.
Why not a trap with Sitri as the bait?
>>32124045>>32124058we have best plans
>>32124164Shax swooned a bit that one time Sitri played after we first recruited her. She's not completely immune.
You'll figure out what is behind you no matter the cost! Well. Someone's cost, anyway. "Hey, Sitri," you hiss out a whisper at the goat girl, "Someone's following us." She glances at you, leans over and nods conspiratorily. "I'm gonna need you to flush them out." Putting a hand on the hilt of her sword, Sitri starts drawing it slowly. "No, no! Do it more with more subtlety." After she gives you a puzzled look, you move your hands to make an hour glass shape. With her still looking confused, you further clarify by put a hand on your hip, lean forward and wink, puckering your lips."Please explain further," Sitri says, and her face looks like its having trouble maintaining its compusure. She must be shy! You slightly pull your skirt up, and put a leg forward, cocking your hip to one side and flutter your eyelashes."Like this!" You hiss."I don't think I understand yet," Sitri manages to stammer out before breaking out in laughter. With a roll of your eyes, you punch her shoulder lightly. What a jerk! You hope no one else saw tha- oh Bearbreath definitely did. After you get done regaining your dignity, Sitri gives you a shrug and a halfhearted, "I'll try my best, I guess," Before walking off. Go get 'em, girl!
Some time passes while you nervously chew your fingernails. Soon you hear laughter, "So I'd like you to meet my traveling companions...""Oh darling, I doubt they could be half as charming as you.""You'd be surprised."Sitri rounds the corner of the cave system, with a weird purple looking girl clinging to her arm. The stranger has two swords in the sash of a rather loose robe. And she's laughing at some joke Sitri murmured to her. What a smooth talker!Wait, swords? You quickly remove the parchment about swordspeople from your pouch, noting your location: 'Underwater Cave System' And scan to see if anyone else has it listed. Before too long you see the ninety second best swordsman on the list with it. Name, Kurohana.She's looking around your camp with a smile on her face till she sees you holding the paper. Suddenly her entire stance changes, pushing Sitri away, and pulling free both her swords. One is much longer than the other."Wh-what?! You lured me into a trap! I never would have thought someone as charming as you would be..." She seems honestly offended! Maybe she's secretly a pretty pure girl?>Let's get the first hit in!>Open discussions!
>>32124304>Shax acting flirtyI feel the warp overtaking me!
>>32124304>Please explain further," Sitri says, and her face looks like its having trouble maintaining its compusure. She must be shy! You slightly pull your skirt up, and put a leg forward, cocking your hip to one side and flutter your eyelashes.>"Like this!" You hiss.>"I don't think I understand yet,"
>>32124324>Let's get the first hit in!Talking with her is fine too, but you know, muh exp.
>>32124324>Open discussions!"Hey wanna teach me to sword better?"Maybe Shax could learn something. Still, 92nd...not too sad if we kill her.
>>32124324>first hit!it was a trap all along!
>>32124324>>Open discussions!How dare you make such accus--something! Were you following to stab me from behind?
>>32124304>>32124324This is why I read OWQ.>Open discussions!
>>32124324Open discussion. We need to figure out where we are. If we really want xp, why not a friendly duel?
W-what? This isn't what I was expectingI take it our last decision was really who our romantic interest was going to be?
>>32124419Shax's only viable romantic partner is turtle-transformed Bearbreath.
>>32124419None of those options invloved her sword, so I doubt it.
>>32124459Bearbreath is cool and all but he doesn't seem like the romantic partner type at all.
>>32124419>Yfw we are now hard-locked into the Sitri-route
>>32124504The quest was about Shax kindling the fire in her heart for a goat onee-sama.Mother Sea Mom Is Watching!Regardless, writing.
>>32124504I'd be okay with that.
>>32124324>>Open discussions!Hi! I'm Shax, nice to meet you.
>>32124481Bearbreath is too cool for romance. He doesn't get distracted like Fetidclaw and the rest!
>>32124533I fully expect Shax to stumble into romance and only realize that she was being courted when she wakes up in the morning.
>>32124597We should start giving everyone titles.
>>32124628Best minion Bearbreath.Second best minion BrokaghFetidclaw the Girl
>>32124324>Let's get the first hit in!Sword first talk laterwe don't have to kill them, right?
>>32124656Sitri the smooth talker.Allonces the pain in the ass.
>>32124656Is fetid finally over that girl now that he's a woman himself?Is he going to have to bail brokagh out of his accidental marriage with a maybe fake affair?Does fetid like dudes now?
>>32124324>Open discussions!"Hi, I'm Shax. Wanna spar or something?"
>>32124696>we don't have to kill them, right?Nope. We have: >Moonlight Champion. Your troops maintain a high morale despite overwhelming odds. In addition, enemies whose spirits are completely crushed may find you inspiring.We beat her up one on one and she might join us.
>>32124728>Allonces the painSo, Since Shax is the boss, who are fury, fear, sorrow and end?
"Oh, hello! I'm Shax, how are you?" The double sword wielding lady enters some sorta stance, and starts circling you, "Um, hi! Why were you following me? I mean, didn't you know I was here? That's why you were following me, right?"Her eyes are a strange hue or red, and she narrows them. "I was relaxing on the beach when, and happened to check the scroll. I saw that another sword saint was here, and wondered if they were after me. I heard noises in the cavern and decided to follow to see if I could figure out if they were the ones after my life. Then I met this DUPLICITOUS and lovely creature," She's blushing? "Who led me right to your trap. Confirming you were after my life after all!"You shake your head, "No, you seem to be confusing something. Also why do I have to kill you?""A fight between those devoted to the sword are to the death!""Are you sure? It can't just be, like, a sparring session? Also Sitri is super nice don't be mean to her.""HER?!""Uh," You glance at Sitri for back up. She shakes her head and holds her arms up as if to say 'leave me out of this'."What deviants have I encountered here? Do you lay with beasts on top of being murderers, liars, and crossdressers?" Sitri isn't really in boy's clothes! Also maybe mentioning Bearbreath right now would be a bad idea. She's clearly hysterical.>Beat some sense into her.>Have Sitri try to calm her down. What's the worst thatcan happen?
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.She's not gonna listen to anything right now. Better hit her until she calms down.
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.Lets knock her out, then talk to her.
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.Whack her with the flat end.
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.
>>32124775>beat some sense into herBut fuck that to the death nonsense. Axe girl lived, so sword girl will too.
>>32124775>Mention Bearbreath>Beat her up
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.We gave her a chance! Let's beat her up!Then maybe we can learn more about this sword saint business once she's incapacitated!
>>32124775>>Beat some sense into her.This can only lead to good things
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.A good hit over the head will surely make her realize that Shax is a good girl!
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.Honurabru Japanese warrior women are always stubborn and unreasonable about these kinds of things.
>>32124775>>Beat some sense into her.We can fight if you want, but I'm not going to kill you because some random piece of paper says so.
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.Just enough to teach her not to say such rude things to people she's just met.
>>32124824B-b-but Tetsubo girl was kill
>>32124775>Beat some sense into her.Murderers? We resent that accusation! Unless you saw the fight against those monks, in that case okay."
In which we trick a young girl, toy with her heart, and then beat her senseless.Gimme a d20! Best of three.
>>32124864She was too generic for her beautiful weapon.
>>32124864We didn't give her a chance to develop a personality, so its okay! This one we let talk, so it would be wrong.
Rolled 1>>32124879Can we be competent now please?
Rolled 3>>32124879Shax gonna give it to ya.
>Not picking whatstheworstthatcanhappen>>32124893hehehe
Rolled 9>>32124879Alright here we->>32124893Get out.
>>32124893No, no we can't. And it's all your fault.
>>32124893Haah WaawWe're boned.
>>32124893You jinxed it.
>>32124893Good thing we are such a great boss1
>>32124893Noooo, we can't recruit her this way anon!Unless she takes pity on Shax I guess.
>>32124893You were asking for it with a post like that.Pls live shax
>>32124893I can't decide what I should even do with this
>>32124893Quick, activate seamom plot-armor!
>>32124893>>32124922What if character point?
>>32124938AhahaDROP THE CHARACTER POINT.
>>32124922If we used a boss point I'd probably go for a reroll over cancelling the 1.
>>32124893As expected of Shax.
>>32124938Eh, I'd rather save character point for a cool person who doesn't seem likely to join.We can maybe drop that on her after we beat her and she's very adamant about not following us but otherwise no.
>>32124938She seems to goody-two-shoes for our party.She'd be funny at first but her constant "but that's not just/honurabru" would get old after a while.
>>32124964>beat herAnon, I have bad news...
>>32124931That ought to be enough to keep us in the game.>Clam up
>>32124986So did Allonces, and we recruited her anyway, and now she uses magic and killed a huge monkey before us but only because she got lucky and we killed two so we're still better at fighting.
>>32125034And Allonces is a bitch and a pain and nobody wants a second Allonces.
>>32125034Allonces is a selfish brat who never really gave a fuck.
I kinda want to save the character point for axe girl.How do we earn more?
>>32125052I do.Well, I want this chick, who is technically not a second Allonces since she's too naive for that. Allonces was down with the raiding from day 1.
>>32125053>>32125052I like Allonces,This isn't murder hobo quest
>>32125066>Allonces was down with the raiding from day 1.Mostly because she didn't know what it meant.
>>32125072The anons in these threads have been strangely bloodthirstly lately.
>>32125072No but this is a quest where we have no problem with murder.
>>32125072I'm >>32125053 and I like Allonces too,I was just pointing out that >>32125034 doesn't have an argument because she was never a goody-two-shoes.
>>32125072>I like Allonces,>This isn't murder hobo questHow would you even relate those two things?
>>32125060Good question anon.
>>32125060Are character points the only way to add people, one of the main problems in quests is people trying to hoard any sort of points we get.
>>32125060I think character points are kind of a useless mechanic that should be fazed out.
>>32125121I'm open to suggestions at any time!
>>32125110We've recruited plenty of people and never once spent a character point.
>>32125129I don't really have much of a suggestion outside of "it was kind of a neat idea but it isn't really catching on or have much use so you should scrap it."Recruiting people through roleplaying is more rewarding and I just see the the point sitting there until the end of the quest at this rate.
I want to hug Shax and pat her head
>>32125168Get your hands off mai waifu.
>>32125129Best of first 3d20 with critfails is a horrible system. The most likely outcome is a 1, at 14.26%. The second most likely outcome is a 20, at 12.23%. This leads to incredibly swingy games, where the MC almost always succeeds except for when they massively fail.I'd suggest switching to something else entirely.
>>32124893Yo boss point that shit. Bitch is a master swordsman trying to kill us. Dont want a huge injury.
>>32125167This is true
>>32125202Critfails are fun, anon.
>>32125202The swingy dice fit the tone of the quest, in my opinion.Literally any other quest and I'd agree with you.
>>32125052Bitch, you talking shit bout my waifu
>>32125202Please get the fuck out of this quest and let us have fun.
>>32125129Well, I do think that you shouldn't just be able to bruteforce an NPC into joining your party. It's the kind of thing that needs to be earned. Maybe you shoulr replace this autowin button with a diplomacy bonus that needs to be used before you roll. You know, the kind of thing where you take a gamble and use points eventhough they might be wasted.
>>32125202I hate people who bitch about which dice we use. We are 33 threads in we aint changing now.>>32125220Tell that to fetid.
>>32125167If you don't like it and think it will just stand there then there is no problem at all. So you can shut up about it.
>>32125202It's not a good one I agree. I spend a lot of time thinking over other systems to use in quests. It's an interesting puzzle trying to find something that provides interactivity and chance while not simultaneously robbing a quest of all momentum.Also, it took me a while to figure out how to do the critfail, so the update was late to get started writing.
>>32125236I like this idea.
Yo just kill her and ask dragon lady if we can have her brought back.
>>32125236To be fair, we specifically have an ability that makes recruiting defeated enemies easier. Ironically, the only defeated enemy we've recruited we got before this ability. We're due for another one anyway.
>>32125243What's with the hostility?
>>32125259>attack zombie sword saintMite b cool, but we could be very far away from Dragon Lady
>>32125246Just have everyone roll 3d20, and take the best average of the first three rolls.
>>32125320I'm not sure I get it entirely but average is always dogshit as nothing fun ever happens.
>>32125308We are somewhere in the underground realm so we couldn't be that far. Even if we are we can just carry her.>>32125320Please God no.
Aggh! You've heard enough. She's clearly not in the mood to be reasoned with, and you do kinda wanna practice sword fighting with someone else. Besides, she's ranked higher than you and sitting at the bottom of the list bothers you more than you'd like to admit.You get your sword ready and make a move at her, charging with it upraised. "Huh?" Allonces says, sitting up with a yawn, grabbing her spear and lifting it up the second you're passing over it. You go spiraling down into a heap and slide towards the swordswoman.Your opponent wastes no time dashing over to where you're prone and grabbing you by the neck, picking you up and putting a blade to your throat in a moment. She holds you hostage there, glancing about the room, daring your minions to make a move. Allonces stands up oblivious to the situation. When she finally finds out what's happening she blinks a few times, "Should I just go back to bed, or...?""Hey, calm down. Shax was just worried someone was following her, alright?" Sitri says in a soothing voice, "And even when you showed up she was only interested in a proper duel, right? So there is no reason to start taking hostages, is there?" You feel the grip on your slacken. After a little more lee way you break free, grabbing your sword that's laying on the ground and get into a proper stance. You hear the purple girl growl."You won't trick me with your pretty face again, she-goat." It seems like Sitri has really gotten on her bad side. It definitely isn't your fault, though! After a few moments, she charges at you before you can really get your guard up.>Defensive! Let's not get in trouble again!>Offensive! Let's knock her out before things get bad!
>>32125359>Defensive! Let's not get in trouble again!Be the turtle, Shax!

>>32125275I don't think you actually understand where the problem lies. Givng people a surefire way of winning is a terrible machanic for gameplay and interactive storytelling. There are no stakes, so when you use it it doesn't feel like you earned your victory. >>32125359>Defensive Offence

>>32125359>Offensive! Let's knock her out before things get bad!The shorter this goes the less likely we are to crit fail again!
>>32125359Don't worry Sitri, she's just ashamed of being attracted to a woman! A goat-woman. Really, the goat part should be just as important, shouldn't it?
>>32125359Defensive! Let's not get in trouble again! The dice feel extra malicious, best be safe.
>>32125359>Turtle Stanced Turtle Defence Turtle Bite
>>32125359>Offensive! Let's knock her out before things get bad!She's using katanas so she's going to have a speedy, precise kind of style, she won't be able to take on an unrelenting assault by a much larger and heavier weapon. Going defensive just plays to her fighting style's strengths.
>>32125359>Offensive! Let's knock her out before things get bad!Bitch needs to stop bullying Sitri, its not her fault she's a total dreamboat!
Pls with the ties.

You don't want this to take too long. There is no telling who is gonna hear your fight. All this shouting, and clanging around. You've been a native of caverns long enough to know that this much noise attracts all kinds of predators. Gotta finish it up! She's got some pretty flimsy swords, too. Time to get offensive!You charge in, this time with your sword lowered like a lance, and jab it at her, something she easily avoids with a floaty dodge. You cut your blade at a hard angle towards her, and she rolls away, out of your reach. using the momentum to carry you forward, you start wrenching your sword back, hoping she'd underestimate the amount of time it'd take for you to get your blade back around.Falling for the bait, she charges in, ready to take a swipe at your midsection, when you blindside her with your sword, she holds one sword out in an attempt to block it, and quickly realizes the momentum behind your swing won't be stopped that easily as she catches the flat of your blade heavily. A loud smack is heard, and the purple girl lets out a surprised shriek as she goes sprawling onto the ground. Quickly, you bop her on the head with your sword to knock her out.>You're now the 92nd best swordswoman! Congratulations!You, Allonces, and Bearbreath tie her up, and confiscate her swords quickly. Brokagh comes rushing into the tunnel. "What's all the commotion about in here?! Did you gusy get- Helloooo, who is this foxy lady?"You cross your arms, "Brokagh, you're engaged." He shrugs.>Get a move on before you get ambushed by, like, one hundred Umber Hulks. Take the girl with you.>Let's make a camp and interrogate her!

>>32125885>Get a move on before you get ambushed by, like, one hundred Umber Hulks. Take the girl with you.Oh god. I have horrible memories of these things from D&D.
>>32125885>Get a move on before you get ambushed by, like, one hundred Umber Hulks. Take the girl with you.Time to leave.
>>32125885>>Get a move on before you get ambushed by, like, one hundred Umber Hulks. Take the girl with you.
>>32125885Get Sitri to carry her on her back.
>>32125885>Get a move on before you get ambushed by, like, one hundred Umber Hulks. Take the girl with you.Lets get going
>>32125885>TELL ME ABOUT BANE!
>>32125974That's evil anon. Thankfully, so is Shax!
>>32125985you're a big sword
Seriously, your goblin senses are going crazy. Making this much noise? Underground? In a cave system? It'd be crazy to stay here. You tell everyone to get a move on. No one volunteers to take your new captive, so you order Sitri to do it."Uhhm, are you sure that's the best plan? Won't she totally freak out?" She will, but she would regardless with who is carryign her. That's your reasoning at least!Fetid arrives just as you confirm with Brokagh that the way is clear, and after you calm her down about the situaion, you all head out. Before too long you break out of the maze of tunnels into a wider cavern system. Your prisoner starts to wake up."Wha- Unhand me! Don't allow this pervert to manhandle me in such a way!" She's practically shouting. Jeez, what a loud person."Hello again, I'm Shax. Anyway, I took you prisoner so could you tell me where we are?" She looks at you like you've lost your mind, "Please?" Her mouth works soundlessly for a few moments before she sniffs dismissively and closes her eyes. "Hmm, the silent treatment?"You hear Sitri laugh. "I think I can make her talk, just give me some time alone with the young lady."The swordswoman's eyes bolt open at that. "You wouldn't!""Oh, what wouldn't this manhandling pervert do?" Sitri replies. You can practically hear the grin on her voice."F-Fine, there is no reason to hide it! This is a neutral area of the Underground Realm, between the drow havens and the wild lands of the minor kingdoms. Aboleth roam near here, and their many allies." You don't know what those are, but you nod."So how do we get to the havens, and also what are you doing out here?"She sniffs, "For the latter question: that's my business. For the former, you should encounter a guard post soon if you continue down this cave, hugging the right. Can I go now?"Well, can she?>Nah, I'm not done with you yet.>Apologize to Sitri! Then you can go.>Create and start a prison in your crystal palace!
>>32126402>Apologize to Sitri! Then you can goWhy else do we need her?
>>32126402apologize. no prisoners AND we took her rank on the list.
>>32126402>Nah, I'm not done with you yet.Pffft.
>>32126402>Apologize to Sitri! Then you can go.We aren't raiding, she can go.
>>32126402>I'm not done with you yet.>Make her apologize anywy;.
>>32126402>>Apologize to Sitri! Then you can go.And thank her for giving you directions. That's all you needed.
>>32126402>>Apologize to Sitri! Then you can go.
>>32126402>Nah, I'm not done with you yet.>Apologize to Sitri
>>32126402>Apologize to Sitri! Then you can go.
>>32126402>Nah, I'm not done with you yet.You gon' get taken home. We need more people that actually know what they're doing!
>>32126402>Apologize to Sitri.However, tell us about this sword saint thing.
>>32126402>>Nah, I'm not done with you yet.Lets at least try to learn about her. WHat she was doing here and such
>>32126402>Apologize to Sitri! Then you can go.Let's get going.
>>32126437What kind of soda would Shax drink?
>>32126402>Apologize then you can not go.
>>32126402>I'm not done with you yet>>32126522She has a flask of lemonade.
Seems you're done with her! Which is good because I had little else I knew to do with that character.Alright, writing!
>>32126552I was kinda hoping that Moonlight Champion would make her amiable to recruitment, when it didn't I figured we should cut our losses.
>>32126587We need to snag Axe girl. She'll be so fun to abuse.
>>32126552>Seems you're done with her! Which is good because I had little else I knew to do with that character.Really? I was expecting her to try to challenge us again in the future.
>>32126631Eh, if we snag Axe girl we'd likely end up meeting her halfway or eventually ditching/killing her. Her JUSTICE lady boner is too stronk for her to just be the annoying party conscience.
>>32126660We have 98 other challengers and the quest is already at the halfway point.It's a fair bet that all of the other Sword Saints are going to be one-off characters.
Well, your business with her isn't quite finished! "Hey! I'll let you go on one condition, okay?"She perks up, "Oh? What is that?""Apologize to Sitri for being mean to her!""But, she's the one who-""No buts! Apologize!"Sitri laughs, "It's okay, I don't need her apologies."The purple girl somehow gets offended by that statement, "Hmph! Of course you do! I'm horribly sorry for the things I've said! So there!" It all worked out in the end? You let her go, give her the weapons back, and wave goodbye. She doesn't wave back. Someone should have taught her more manners.Before too long you reach the guard post. It seems undermanned, and they arrange an escort for you back to the army staging camp. A few days pass, and you arrive back home at last.What's the plan?>Report immediately to Nevith the Grumpy, your draconic patron!>Let's swing by the goblin warrens. Who knows what trouble they've gotten up to.>Maybe there is something else in camp worth checking out? >>Specify where.
>>32126684Paladins fall. We can give her a push.
>>32126552Is she ranked 93rd sword saint now or did she get bumped to shax's rank?
>>32126699>Report immediately to Nevith the Grumpy, your draconic patron!
>>32126699>report immediatelyWe're almost off Namel!
>>32126699>Report immediately to Nevith the Grumpy, your draconic patron!Shax is getting that raiding itch. If she doesn't scratch it, she might raid anything or anyone nearby. Even Allonces.
>>32126697Eh, she seemed amusing to me. Kinda hope to see her again.
>>32126699Let's go open up our plane somewhere like the Goblin warrens then report back.
>>32126699>Let's swing by the goblin warrens. Who knows what trouble they've gotten up to.Goblins plot!
>>32126699>>Report immediately to Nevith the Grumpy, your draconic patron!Let's go back to our minions quickly. Who knows what they got up to without Boss around.
>>32126734I'd raid Allonces.
>>32126699plonk down the crystal entrance somewhere, before anyone can order us where to place it?
>>32126700Shax really isn't the type for that.Besides, Shax's entire convincing prowess comes down to being cute and basically going "come on, it'll be fun" or "I'm the boss and you have to listen to me."Only way I see Axe Girl falling from Shax's influence is if she develops some kind of crush on her or something else equally ridiculous.
>>32126754>>32126734What do you mean you've come to claim my treasures?
>>32126750I want to follow up on taking out Fouldrinker and becoming Chief before we leave.Got to work up to saving our soul from being devoured by the shittiest god.
>>32126699>>Let's swing by the goblin warrens. Who knows what trouble they've gotten up to.And we can get FOOD there!
>>32126785Allonces a cute. >>32126699>Report immediately to Nevith the Grumpy, your draconic patron!
>>32126785Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
Rolled 7>>32126785This is quickly turning into a half-baked porno plot.
>>32126810I agree, but let's be completely done with the side quest first. We'll probably get a new assignment too, so using that to rally the goblins will be useful.
>>32126780Maybe we keep beating Axe Girl and she develops some kinda creepy yandere feeling for us? While still remaining incompetent, of course.
No time for dilly dallying then. Writing!
>>32126858We can always bring up becoming Chief to Nevith.We're obviously better than this Fouldrinker guy so she'd totally support us, right?
Rolled 18Did we end up doing that task we were meant to do, or did we just screw around with light pillars? I forgot.
>>32126780I dunno. I could see Shax turning someone tribal.
>>32126877She would probably encourage it.
>>32126903What was it we were meant to do?
Rolled 20>>32126943I forgot that too. Oh, well.
>>32126943Disrupt the ritual and yeah we did, that's what the doll is from.
>>32126943Get that weird puppet thing.
>>32126913I don't.Mainly because for most of the quest Shax has influenced otherwise Evil characters into being not assholes.
>>32126903Yeah, we just had to take a detour from the light pillars to smash some guys she wanted us to smash. It's where we got the creepy doll.
>>32126785God damnit Chief, I want to pet her and cuddle her and feed her ego.What have you done to me?!
>>32126982Not really, she convinced an elf, a satyr, and two Knolls to just start raiding for no real reason.
>>32127018The Gnolls were already from evil-aligned origins and the elf and satyr pretty much didn't care about doing the morally correct thing.As I said before, Shax's convincing prowess comes down to "come on, it'll be fun." Which, while it worked on those guys because they didn't really care about doing the right thing, won't work at all on someone who legitimately believes in Good.
>>32127018What's a knoll? Is it anything like a Gnoll?But seriously shax seems to push people away from both extremes.
>>32127062I know, I was just saying that she doesn't make everyone evilerMore like this >>32127070
>>32127062The satyr said she was no stranger to raids herself.
>>32127070This guy gets it. Shax is why good men turn neutral.
>>32127070It's funny, Shax has a perk specifically to make people on both extremes like her more.
You and your merry band march straight to the mansion you remember Nevith residing in, and walk straight up to the young secretary. "Hello, I am Shax," You can barely look over the counter. "I am back from this thing the dragon lady sent me to do, can I talk to her?"He glances up, with a disinterested look. Suddnely, his face brightens as he recognizes you, "Oh, you're Allonces' friend, right? I'll let notify her malevolence right away." 'Allonces' friend?' You don't like the sound of that one bit. Not one bit.Remembering the wait last time, you get yourself comfortable. Fetid sits the doll down on a seat next to her, and everyone else settles down as well. "So, Shax, she said we could have some treasure from her vault. Do you have anything in mind you'd like?" Sitri brings up the reward while Allonces chats up the receptionist some more.You shrug, "I dunno really. I got my own vault now. And a smith. I should let you visit some time! I got a big old library, too.""Ooh, I'd like that. Let me know next time you head over to this elemental plane. I'm half convinced it doesn't exist, you know?" She elbows you."Whaaat, you've seen me shoot a giant crystal spear and summon turtles." Sitri just laughs. The door opens up. Guess you won't be waiting forever like last time."Shaaaax~ I hear you've got something for me?" A familiar voice booms out. As your part y stands up, you motion for Fetid to let you carry the doll, and carry it under your arm, its limbs dragging on the floor, as you walk into her room.She's in a... wedding dress?>Boast about your accomplishments!>Matter of factly give her the stuff and demand a reward!>Bring up some other topic!
>>32127157>Boast about your accomplishments!
>>32127157>Bring up some other topic!Her Wedding!
>>32127157>Boast about your accomplishments!She's going to marry the shota puppet god vessel, isn't she?
>>32127157>>Bring up some other topic!complain about skeletons and smelly marshes and traitorous lizardmencompliment her wedding dress and ask what it's about."Oh, right, I also stopped that ritual thing and got this doll here."
>>32127157>Boast about your accomplishments!Now's not the time to question her attire. We have to gloat about being a Light God!
>>32127157>Why are you in a dress?Ask it flat out.
>>32127157>>Boast about your accomplishments!
>>32127157>Allonces' friendOh~>wedding dressCongratulate dragon lady, I guess
>>32127157>Boast about your accomplishments!Shax doesn't even know what humilty means.We can ask her about the wedding after.
>>32127157>"Oh, you're getting married? Congratulaatiooooooonnnnssssssssssssss."Draw it out as awkwardly as possible.
>>32127157>>Boast about your accomplishments!Duh
>>32127157You know, how about we stab her. Like, right now. In the throat. Then we have fetid revive her, use our companion point, and BOOM we're da boss! Literally.
>>32127157"So I solved a murder, got drunk and accidentally hired a backstabbing lizard guy, killed a blood god and then became a Light God!Oh here's that creepy puppet thing you wanted."
>>32127323She would stomp us.
>>32127157>Boast about your accomplishments!Shax is the best at everything
>>32127323Somehow I doubt we are strong enough to kill her right now. Even from a sneak attack.
>>32127323Power gaming isn't fun.I like dragon lady. She's like a big sister
>>32127323A brilliant plan! But you don't have an acorn to revive her with.She also is an ancient chromantic dragon in DnD so you'd have to deal with wing buffets and bullshit level magic.
>>32127323why not just use the companion point
>>32127389I don't want the dragon lady tagging along with us, it'd be boring.
>>32127351If we manage to one-hit her it won't be a matter of powerlevels. She's holding her weeding right now. There's no way she would see it coming!>>32127384That's a fair point though.
Alright! It's time towrite
>>32127389You can only use that on opponents you defeated, I believe.
>>32127384That dragon lady is far too lewdHonestly, wearing clothes like that. It's shameful is what it is.
>>32127435We can't one hit her. Even with There's Nothing My Cutter Cannot Cuttle and Back"stab"She's godlike in power
>>32127452No one knows what it does. Time to just completely change it!>Character point no longer exists!>It will be something I decide on later.
>>32127476Mmmk You could just convert it to a Boss Point since recruiting is a job of The Boss
>>32127476 Did we get a sword saint point or something for beating up that lady?
>>32127513EXP comes at the end of the thread.
>>32123517As cute as Shax looks in that I kind of want to see her in something really frilly and girly now.
>>32127513> ) The Non-Stop Pop Pop and Stainless Steel - Physical training has given your body the endurance to fight on far beyond your normal limits! Extreme boost to HP and Stamina, as well as giving you a gold necklace with reckless diamonds
>>32127471This isn't videogames m8. If you backstab someone with a stupidly oversized sword, that someone isn't going to get back up because you didn't deplete his hitpoints. In any case, keikaku doesn't work anymore, so we're just going to have to think up something else.
>>32127611This person just happens to be a dragon. Do you really think that a backstab would do serious damage to her?
>>32127611>that someone isn't going to get back up because you didn't deplete his hitpointsThat's what happens in DnD. And this is basically DnD.
>>32127560Yeah. We should go clothes shopping with AlloncesI only picked the vest due to its stats
>>32127611What part of "She's a goddamn super powerful dragon" did you not get?
>>32127664We need a helmet, an oversized helmet that drops down over our eyes
>>32127664Just Allonces? Why not Sitri too? Or Milda too when we meet up with her again.And Fetid too. He needs regular girls clothes now. The bikini is creeping me out.
Guysfor the reward we should ask that we be the bridesmaid during the wedding
>>32127708But I want stuff, anon.Shax is obviously the flower girl, anyway.
>>32127708Nah, we want useful stuff. Besides weddings don't seem like a thing Shax would enjoy.
>>32127560>>32127572>>32127664I'm trying to think what would look good on someone with green skin.You'd probably have to avoid the usual bright colors girly clothing has.
>>32127760How about armor? We haven't gotten any yet besides the cobbled together shit from the beginning
>>32127760Grey suits.Red dresses?
>>32127772We're talking about frilly stuff right now, anon. We can get some armor too.
>>32127772We definately need something feminine yet practical. Maybe an enchanted dress with shorts underneath.
>>32127789Well, we ARE talking magical dragon hoard stuff. It might be dual-purpose (frilly battle armor), or glamered to appear as multiple outfits.
>>32127760Red would work. Maybe something black and purple too.
>>32127803Dresses don't seem like something she would wear all the time. Only for the occasional party or wedding. But she's much to practical for all the time dresses.
>>32127823Not purple. Maybe lilac.
>>32127814>Well, we ARE talking magical dragon hoard stuffI thought we were talking about clothes shopping?That works too, though.
>>32127844So we ask for some awesome yet still feminine armor? I'll second that.
>>32127825What's something girly she could wear all the time then?
"Hey! I'm back, lady! Why are you in a wedding dress?" You ask this question as you throw the doll on to the ground. Nevith starts walking towards it, "Also, I'd like to officially report that that continent is terrible, even though I was great at beating people up there. I killed a temple lady who had a club as large as my sword, and I solved a muder mystery."Nevith looks up, "Oh, you did?" She lightly grabs her veil and pulls it down over her face, with a smile, "Who committed the crime.""I dunno, some fomorian cultist person." You struggle to remember other relevant information, "Also, I recruited this lizard guy." You hear Nevith laugh, "Was he cute?"An unexpected question, "Yeah! But he tried to kill me and resurrect me as his zombie warrior.""The cute ones always do." Wow, she's so wise. You hope to be as wise as her some day. "At least I'm getting married off today."Obviously, but to who? "Oh, right. Also I became the ruler of the entire elemental plane of light, I dunno if that is relevant, though." The dragon lady stops and looks at you.She laughs, "You're joking.""Nope." She seems to think on this for a moment."I see. Anyway, I thank you for bringing the god vessel here." Wait a second, you never called it that.
>>32127760Ya know I could have sworn Chief said that her skin was more gray than green in an early thread.
"You knew what it was? I thought you weren't sure." At least you think she said it was just some artifact of large power."Of course I wasn't sure. But I had a pretty good idea. Anyway, this vessel will do nicely," Nevith finally reaches the doll, "Let's get that ritual finished up, shall we? Please do pick from my treasury while I start setting it up."Uh... what ritual? The thing that burned Utalaga to the ground? Well, no time to think about it. You have treasure to pick from!Pick three! Unfortunately, you have no idea what any of this does. Some things do look pretty neat, though.>A golden horned cap with a green jewel set in the front.>A Snowglobe!

I'm counting 13 for bracelet and belt, everything else is all over the place and not nearly as high.
You pick up a thick golden bracelet, like the one you've currently got on and pocket it. "That's one," Nevith calls out in a sing song voice, then continues humming while moving her arms in some weird manner. Trying to not let her bother you, you rummage around a bit, before finding a super sweet belt with a tiger on it. Well, that's definitely getting taken. "Two~" She's not even looking this way. Magic is weird! What else... A smooth polished mask looks pretty neat, and you pick it up quickly. "Three! Alright, I hate to be rude but I'm going to need you to leave. I have to finish up this ritual and then enjoy my wedding night, you know..."Gross.

>>32128358>Look in the mirror say my name five times>Turn out the lights then I done crooked nine lives You'd better have something like that prepared in the near future, 'cause Shax is coming for ya.
Gonna need a drawfag to make a Shax&turtle conversion
>>32128679Well, we're starting to learn Light/Laser magic, and we're the Boss of the Plane of Light, so it's feasible that in the future Shax could totally stab people through mirrors.
>>32128746If we don't shoot those lasers from our eyes I'm dropping this quest.

Extreme boost to HP and Stamina, as well as giving you a gold necklace with reckless diamonds.You've noticed lately that you're a heck of a lot tougher than ever before. Living life adventurously has helped forge your body into a killing machine! Also, for some reason, you have a diamond necklace. You don't get tired like you used to, either. You'd recommend the adventuring life to anyone looking to get healthier.>You can now learn:>No Matter How Many Cats I Break Bread With... - You get a large damage bonus to anyone you've had diplomatic relations with! The more they like you... the more you can hurt them. You'd never need this, though, right?!>Cause I am Right So I Gotsta Win! - Your determination has gone beyond that of a normal warrior. You're able to ignore even fatal wounds! They'll still, you know, kill you. But they won't stop you from fighting on. You now have a ridiculous tolerance for pain.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Character point system is removed for being lame! Will invent something by next thread. Open to suggestions.>Allonces levels up!

He learns:>>Transform Animal Companion - His lynx can turn into! An adorable house cat. Also a dire abyssal lion.>>Overpowered Druid Spells - He learns that broken spell where you shoot lightning from your eyes and can fly or whatever
>>32128950Maybe some sort of despair/corruption system?I know I keep saying this, but I really want to drive Axe girl bonkers and turn her into a tribal girl.
>>32128950Allonces is getting GOOD
>>32128976And every time you say it I get more and more annoyed.
>>32128950We still have two I'm the boss! points, I think.
>>32128950My Little Hexblade Can't be this Sexy!
>>32128950Allonces is getting useful, we bring her along and throw her at boys to get information, and make her throw us tea parties.And the dire abyssal lion is probably adorable, at least in Shax's eyes.
>>32128998Okay, I'll stop.
>Brokagh levels up! He learns:>>Punch Dracula - Brokagh can punch to death even those without life. His fists ignore damage reduction.>>Hey Girl, Nice Digs, Brokagh by the Way - Brokagh is the master of casually introcuding himself, no matter the situation. Can interrupt any action to start a conversation. Only works on females.>Fetidclaw levels up! She learns:>>How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love my New Youth - A significant bonus defense to all Will saves.>>Enjoys Making Everyone Uncomfortable - Stat gain the more uncomfortable everyone is. We don't like to talk about it.>Sitri levels up! She learns:>>Switch Hitter - Can use her weapon left handed and right handed. Able to passively support a situation, and take control of one.

Allows them to take attacks of opportunity on any enemy she is fighting.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~That's all for tonight! Thanks for reading and playing. I had a lot of fun tonight, and didn't notice as time flew by!I really want to hear what you'd like to see from a one use point system, so say anything. Even if it is, like, really stupid. I was originally gonna let you pick which feat the minions got but they were all too fun so I let you have both.Anyway! I really do appreciate you guys playing this whole time! You guys are great and make it worth setting five hours of my day aside just to play pretend on 4chan. Seriously. It's a ton of fun, and it is all thanks to you. Thank you so much!I think there are some new people now, somehow? If you didn't know, I announce when I'm gonna run on: https://twitter.com/FouldrinkingUsually three hours in advance! I don't know the next day I can run. Hoping for Sunday, but we'll see. See you guys later!
>>32128950>Advanced Elven Tea Party Mastery - Allonces has the ability to prepare and host a tea party as a minor action.God fucking dammit I am so fucking tired of the elf-wankery going on in this universe this is so OP Chief should immeidately commit sudoku as penance for his crimes against balance and my personal preference
>>32129021Maybe something to do with our newfound godhood or for managing political influence/morale?
>>32129021Thanks for the thread, Chief. I always have fun reading this quest. One of the high points of my week.As for the point system, I really have no idea. I can't think of an aspect of the quest I want more control over mechanically. Maybe have it do something similar like start a random encounter/side-quest with someone guaranteed to be interested in being our ally.I can see us using that probably the next time we steer off to find side quests.
>>32128950>No Matter How Many Cats I Break Bread With...>Cause I am Right So I Gotsta Win!DMX encounter when? Will we see/fight some of the Ruff Ryders crew(this should be the name of the group if it's not already)
>>32129021Maybe we could spend character points to give our minions temporary buffs. Like giving Bearbreath a one use super transformation or having Sitri distract a whole encampment or something, or making Allonces useful.
>>32129021Totally A Goblin, Guys points.>TAGG points allow Shax to cancel anything that would normally be the result of goblin incompetence: poor combat performance, social ineptitude and the inability to count up to or past certain numbers.>Alternatively, they may be spent to automatically succeed at a certain "gobliny" task, such as backstabbing, use of superior numbers, laying/planning crude traps and ambushes mean and pointless tricks and playing dead/dying messily.>Note that this would only work for truly gobliny things, like digging a hole in the ground and covering it with leaves for a trap and not, say, a complicated system of counterweights, pressure plates and flame-spewing gargoyles.
>>32129204>making Allonces useful.Not even I can do that and I have complete narrative control over the quest.
