>Fire>Air>Water>EarthPreviously on Avatar Quest......You and your family left your home in the capital city of the Northern Kingdom and travelled West, on the orders of the Queen. You were all tasked with exploring and settling new lands for your kingdom. After nearly a week of travel, your younger brother, Sonyo, began to complain that it was taking far too long to find a place to settle. You suggested creating a clearing to settle in by knocking down trees with Earthbending. Your family decided to try it your way, and knocked down many trees, attracting a pack of Crocodile Wolves with the noise. After the five of you fought them off, your parents cooked the three you killed, and you all sat down for dinner. Soon, another family that had been sent after your arrived, and sat down to dinner with you. You spoke with them briefly, and learned that the father of the family, Ren, is the brother of the Queen.
>Welcome to Avatar Quest. Here are the rules.Decisions are made by vote. Each vote has a ten minute interval, after which, the option that receives the most votes it the one that is chosen.There are no write-ins unless explicitly statedSome options require rolls. In that event, rolls will be out of 100. Whether rolls succeed or fail is decided by the first three rolls. If one passes, then you succeed regardless of the other two. Rolls will really only occur during training, or when trying something new.All decisions are final. If you regret voting for something, too bad. Think carefully before you make decisions.Try to keep waifu bullshit to a minimum.
>IMPORTANTI was planning on update this Friday, but then remembered that it was the Fourth of July. Should I make a thread on July 4th?http://strawpoll.me/2028869
>>33132524No up to QM?
Hey Som, good to see ya.Will you kill us in the first thread or what?
"So, how were you guys chosen for this?" you ask.Ren stops eating. "Well, the Queen is my sister," he says casually before resuming his meal."Interesting," your father comments. "The Queen did not inform us that she would be sending her brother to join us. It is an honor."Ren snorts. "None of that, please. And, I'm not surprised that my sister didn't tell you. She doesn't really like to acknowledge that we're related; me being a non-bender, and all.""Why should that matter?" your mother asks."It shouldn't," Ren replies. "But, my sister is really hung up on her idea of "bender superiority". So, she doesn't like the idea of having a non-bending sibling. And she especially doesn't like the idea of people knowing about it.""So, why tell us?" Bulo asks."Your brother asked," Ren replies before looking at you. "I figured it only polite that I give him an honest answer.">A. Tell him you appreciate his honesty>B. Tell him he didn't need to tell you if he didn't want to>C. Tell him you agree with the Queen about the superiority of benders>D. Dialogue writein>E. Stay silent, just eat your dinner
>>33132636This is the second, so no.>>33132618It really makes no difference to me. If people will show up, I will do it. If not, there is little point.
>>33132662A. Tell him you appreciate his honesty
>>33132662>A. Tell him you appreciate his honesty
>>33132662>A. Tell him you appreciate his honestyHe seems nice. Let's be nice in return.
>>33132662>>C. Tell him you agree with the Queen about the superiority of bendersThe peons will bow before us after we meet up with a molerat and learn its ways.
>>33132736>>33132854"I appreciate your honesty," you tell him.He gives a polite smile. "Of course.""So, since you know how we got chosen, it's only fair that we know how you got chosen," Galda tells you."Good point," Felna agrees. "Why was your family chosen to lead this project?""Well, for one thing, my wife and I fought in the great war," your father explains. "For that reason, the Queen thought we were good choices for a potentially dangerous mission.""And of course, the fact that you're both benders, along with your children, likely contributed to her decision," Ren adds."Yes, I suppose," your father concedes, sounding slightly perturbed. "Well, bending should be useful," Galda says. "After all, it's a lot easier to fight when you don't actually have to get close and risk death."You get the feeling that was meant as an insult, and judging by the look on your father's face, he has reached the same conclusion."Yeah, throwing rocks is fun!" Sonyo says, the smile on his face telling you he didn't pick up on the insult.Felna smiles. "It sounds like it." She looks at your parents. "So you're Earthbenders? Your skills must have been useful in the war."Your mom smiles. "Our bending did help us win a few fights. But honestly, I think the hundreds of well trained soldiers contributed more.">A. Say that earthbending is worth a thousand soldiers>B. Say Earthbending sounds pretty useless in a war>C. Stay silent>D. Dialogue writein>E. Tell Galda that you and your family are much better fighters than she could hope to be
>>33133086>>C. Stay silent
>>33133086D Using a bow or a sword not easy at all. Earthbending is the same way, you need practice and discipline to fight well with any tool.
>>33133086>D. Earthbending definitely has its uses. But its simply another tool a warrior can use in battle. The skill of the individual is more important than the weapon, whatever it may be.
>>33133134(samefaggin') we're the avatar, we oughta be dispensing spiritual wisdom and shit
>>33133170I'm pretty sure you're aware, but I'm going to point this out anyway; you don't know that you're the Avatar,
>>33133196doesn't mean we can't be spiritual.
>>33133086>D. Dialogue writein"Earthbending is powerful, but it's best when it's supporting others. Throwing rocks around is impressive, sure. But the ability to lift up walls or dig trenches quickly can be a lot more useful. Let those show off firebenders try to fight a battle on their own. Earth is unity. We do our best work together."
>>33133147>>33133185>>33133212>>33133214>>33133220"Earthbending definitely has its uses," you speak up. "But, it's simply another tool a warrior can use in battle. The skill of the individual is more important than the weapon, whatever it may be."Everyone stares at you."Very well said," Ren speaks up. Galda snorts. "Skill?"She gets up, and walks over to a small stone on the ground. Pulling back her right foot, she kicks the stone against a tree."Wow, that took so much skill," she comments sarcastically.Your father's face turns red, while your mother just smiles softly and shakes her head. Felna rolls her eyes while Bulo glares. Sonyo and Lee look a bit confused. "That's enough, Galda," Sena tells her daughter. "Take a seat.""What?" Galda asks. "My point is that bending is simple. Firebenders can shoot blasts of flame from their hands, Earthbenders can throw rocks straight ahead, Waterbenders can mess with currents a little bit, and Airbenders can make gusts of wind. I really doubt it takes any actual skill to do something so basic."Your father looks ready to explode, but you can also tell that he can't really find a retort to that, as she did pretty much describe the extend of a bender's abilities."What about the Avatar?" Lee asks. "He could do all sorts of things with bending."Galda rolls her eyes. "One bender out of all of them doing something impressive-""Two," Sena corrects."Fine, two benders out of all of them doing something impressive does not make bending great," Galda states."Your mother said take a seat," Ren says in annoyance.Galda sighs. "Fine."As Galda goes back to her spot, Felna looks at her parents. "Wasn't there some waterbender to the south a while back who could do all kinds of tricks?""So they say," your father answers. "But, I'm not sure if I believe it. After all, he wound up dead; his tricks didn't save him.""Nobody is invincible," Ren points out."Maybe, but if I had that kind of power, some pet-
>>33133489Shouldn't airbenders also be able to fly? The ones who lived on the Lion Turtle of Air could. Does that mean that the technique has actually regressed since the Avatar?

One of our sons is sixteen, and I'm sure that he could handle himself," your dad tells her."Yeah, maybe if the bandit stood right in front of him and didn't know how to dodge," Galda mutters.>A. Tell her to shut her mouth>B. Tell everyone you agree with Galda; you wouldn't count on your bending to save you. >C. Tell your dad he's right, you can handle yourself>D. Dialogue writein>E. Say nothing
>>33133527Yeah, over the generations it's become less common. Some airbenders still know it, but they don't use it often since they're generally not getting themselves in situations where it's necessary. Galda also neglected to point out that airbenders can use their bending to increase their speed
>>33133539>D. It would likely depend on how good a fighter the bandit was. Luck has a fair bit to play in a fight as well, even a master can be cut down by a lucky novice.
>>33133539>>C. Tell your dad he's right, you can handle yourself
>>33133608>Luck has a fair bit to play in a fight as well, even a master can be cut down by a lucky novice.R.I.P Acolyte Bone Face we hardly knew ye
>>33133539>C. Tell your dad he's right, you can handle yourself
>>33133539>D. Dialogue writein"From what I heard the kid had also just lost his mother. He wasn't thinking straight, and that's what cost him his life. Could I fight off someone with a knife? Maybe. Depends on how good they are. But if you or Mom had just died, and I was all kinds of lost? My chances would definitely go down."
>>33133608I'll second thisand add this if thats okay>>33133658
>>33133623>>33133643>>33133677"You're right, dad, I can handle myself," you tell your father.He grins. "See?"Galda snorts. "So him saying it makes it true? Hey everybody, I'm a dragon...hmmm, would you look at that? I'm not a dragon. It's almost like what I say has no effect on reality.""Galda!" Sena yells.Galda ignores her mother and turns to you. "If you were to get into a real fight, your little stones wouldn't do anything to save you. I wouldn't even break a sweat defeating an "oh so mighty" bender like you.">A. Tell her to prove it.>B. Tell her that you're sure she could>C. Tell her that you don't like her attitude>D. Dialogue writein>E. Say nothing

>>33133884add to this >>33133866
>>33133866DO IT NAOW!
>>33133793>D. Dialogue writein"Where does this hostility come from? Not once has any of my family insulted you or looked down upon you. Do you feel that you have something to prove because you are not a bender? Having your family shunned for not possessing the ability must not have been easy, growing up in the Queen's court. I can understand if that has made you resentful, but please do not take it out on us. You are nobility. Act like it."
>>33133974Oh shit tits. Fuck a kiss. Seconding this
>>33133974Oohhhhh shit Are you a firebender son?This fucking this
>>33133866I want it to happen
>>33133974Oh man, changing my vote to this.
>>33133974Welp, this gets my vote.
>>33133974Ouch. Let's go with this.
>>33133974>>33133866Mix the two

I won't even break a sweat."The two of you stand up and walk a bit away from the others. You face one another, and each back up, putting some distance between you. She grabs a pair of daggers from her belt and throws them to the side."You can use your stones," she tells you. "But I won't need any weapons. And, since you seem to want to make a wager out of this, when I win, you have to admit that bending takes no real talent and is a useless skill.">A. Deal; hurl a rock high>B. Deal; hurl a rock low>C. Deal; hurl a rock center>D. Dialogue writein>E. Deal; Get in a defensive stance and fight with your hands>F. Deal; get ready to dodge>G.

>>33133974Have everyone pick their bowls off the table first. When she lunges for us, we kick the ground, make the table pop upwards and smack her.
>>33134114>G. Deal; get in a defensive stance and get ready to bend once you see what she's going to do

>>33134114Stonefist time. Clasp big rocks around our hands, lift them with bending.
>>33134135I strongly dislike this. Especially considering the plethora of support for that dialogue option.
>>33134171I really liked your dialogue choice and wish it would have won, anon. Don't feel bad, you can always suggest it next vote.>>33134199>>33134169What part of "can only throw rocks forward" did you not get?
>>33134199We can't do anything like that yet I don't think
>>33134207same. a good QM has to be willing to compromise on stuff like this.
>>33134223we should try dragging rocks up! it's hardly different!
>>33134234>>33134207why not just say you vote for the option instead of changing your vote?
>>33134234Also, I totally read that as decisions are final. As in once the post is made theres no going back. Not you can't change your vote if someone suggests a superior option. If anything that just stifles creativity and makes it worthless to put time into a response since all the 'votes' are unchangeable and already locked in.
>>33134234>>33134207If you saw Saiyan Story, you'll understand why I'm hesitant to compromise on things.
>>33134283I did see Saiyan story. I don't really see why that 'rule' exists though? See >>33134277
>>33134277Okay fine, starting now yadda yadda
>>33134321Sorry, Som. I'm not trying to badger you. It can just really fuck things up, unless everyone is willing to samefag and pretend to be other people.
>>33134139>>33134164>>33134169>>33134172>>33134194"Deal." you tell her.She smirks. "Good; this should be fun."You get into a defensive stance, earning a snort from your opponent."Oh, the bender's gonna try fighting hand to hand?" she asks. "This should be good for a laugh."She crouches, then breaks into a sprint, rushing towards you in a straight line. You can't help but think of her comment from a few moments ago as she runs right in front of you."Yeah, maybe if the bandit stood right in front of him and didn't know how to dodge.">A. Hurl a rock at her, aim high>B. Hurl a rock at her, aim center>C. Hurl a rock at her, aim low>D. Dodge by jumping or rolling out of the way>E. Sidestep and hit her>F.

>>33134468>>33134473>>33134495>>33134585>>33134589>>33134604You stand your ground, remaining in your defensive stance as she gets closer and closer. At the last second, she does a cartwheel to your side, probably expecting an Earthbending attack and moving to dodge it. You turn to face her and manage to block the first punch she throws at you. As you prepare to block her next strike, you see her drop to the ground, and suddenly feel your legs swept out from under you.You fall onto your back with a grunt, and look up to see Galda standing over you, smirking."So, ready to concede defeat and admit bending is useless?" she asks.>A. Yes,say it>B. No>C. Stay silent>D. Dialogue writein>E. Get to your feet and punch>F. Get to your feet and start hurling rocks at her>G. Get to your feet and get into a defensive stance again

>Get completely owned while using a defensive stance>Hey, I know, this obviously more mobile opponent can be beaten by using the same defensive stance!Why are you idiots?
>>33134742>D. Stomp and raise the ground under her feet.
>>33134897QM's not allowing us to innovate.
>>33134765>>33134787>>33134793>>33134813>>33134835>>33134866Not willing to accept defeat, you get back to your feet and assume a defensive stance once again. Galda rolls her eyes and comes at you with another punch, which you manage to block once again. This time, when she drops to sweep your legs out from under you, you jump over her leg and kick her in the head, knocking her onto her back. She quickly rolls back and gets to her feet, leaping at you and bringing her knee into your arms, causing you to stagger back and knocking your arms back, leaving you exposed. She lands and spins, kicking you in the chest and knocking you onto your back a second time. This time, she steps on your chest to keep you pinned, and she looks kind of pissed."Are you going to give up, or am I going to have to beat your head into the ground until you're crapping out rocks, Earthbender?" she asks.>A. Surrender and say what you promised to say>B. Never>C. Stay silent>D. Dialogue writein>E. Try to shake her off>F. Grab her leg and try to pull it off of you>G.

>>33135094D. "You haven't beaten an Earthbender, you've beaten an equal opponent in a fair fight. You didn't use your tools, so I didn't use mine."

I can understand if that has made you resentful, but please do not take it out on us. You are nobility. Act like it."
>>33135094Well she's hella nimble and athletic so I think pretty much all those options to keep fighting might bite us in the ass
>>33135094can we Earthbend a rock from behind into her back to knock her over, or is that 'too complicated' for us?
>>33135140>>33135151I vote for a combo of these.
>>33135094>G. Grab her leg and try to pull her to the ground; see if you can pin her
>>33135151Just to clarify, its a copypaste because now is he right time for her to hear it.
>>33135170She's agile, but we probably still have the physical strength advantage, which is why grappling is the best idea.

I don't see how you think you're "equal" when you've been out on the ground twice in less than a minute. And you're still an Earthbender, you just didn't bother using your bending.; not that it would have done any good.""You didn't use your tools, so I didn't use mine," you tell her."Your 'tools' are useless, and you had just enough brain power to realize that," she replies. "Of course, if you had much brain power, you wouldn't have picked a fight with me when all you know how to do is throw pebbles.""Where does this hostility come from?" you ask. "Not once has any of my family insulted you or looked down on you. Do you feel that you have something to prove because you're not a bender?"Her eyes narrow and she digs her heel into your chest."Having your family shunned for not possessing the ability must not have been easy, growing up in the Queen's court," you continue. "I can understand if that has made you resentful, but please don't take it out on us. You're nobility. Act like it."She scowls at your last two sentences and puts more weight on your chest. "Oh, you can understand, can you? You're even more stupid than I thought. You don't understand a damn thing.""Galda, that's enough!" Ren yells.Galda throws a glare towards her father. "No, it isn't. He wants to know "where this hostility comes from", so I'm going to tell him."She turns her attention back to you. "You don't understand. My family is royalty. My aunt is the queen, but we sure aren't treated like royalty by everyone else. And my aunt, the Queen, treats us all like dirt. She kicked my dad out of the palace as soon as she took the thrown, and never acknowledged our existence. We never heard from her until we were told about this little trip. We found out that we were being sent to explore and crea-
>>33135541>>33135140>>33135151>>33135201>>33135235>>33135243>>33135247-te a new city. But, would my father be in charge? Would he get any respect from my Aunt after all these years? Of course not. We were being sent second, and your father, an Earthbender, would be calling the shots. Mother and father kept telling us it was a great opportunity and honor, but I know what it really is. My aunt saw an opportunity to get rid of my father without causing any sort of suspicion. She's hoping we'll die on this little trip. And, if we don't, at least we'll be far away, and there will be no risk of anyone in the capital learning who we are."Putting more weight on your chest, she leans in close. "You understand nothing. You grew up in a family of benders; people looked up to your family, respected you, thought you were special. Meanwhile, my family had its birthright stolen for the simple fact that we couldn't perform some useless tricks. What has your family done to earn respect from the Queen? Your parents fought in the war, well so did thousands of other people who don't get the same level of respect. And why is your family different? Because they can throw rocks around without having to touch them. That's where this hostility comes from. I have everything to prove. I can prove that my aunt is full of shit; that bending doesn't make you any better than anybody else, that it's all just a bunch of useless little tricks that aren't worth getting excited about. Oh, and you want me to act like nobility? I learned from the Queen that this is what nobles d-

And this is why you don't say the obvious and you best her in combat without earth bending.

>>33135768>G>>33135803I think trying to earthbend would be bad.
>>33135731Smile and say 'we're in agreement, then.' Then begin some exposition about how we think giving favor based on bending will drive the kingdom into the ground by giving power to those not qualified to wield it. Our family may be competent, but bending doesn't equal inherent superiority.
>>33135768>G. Grab her leg and try to pull her to the ground; see if you can pin herLets go for it
The Avatar that doesn't bend... I like it.

You flip over and attempt to pin her, but she rolls out of the way and punches you in the side of the head.She keeps rolling and gets to her feet, but you quickly do the same and tackle her from behind.

You would think royalty would be trained to repel assassins and shit, I really don't think we ever stood a chance guys, let's not antagonise her.
>>33136110>>33136125>>33136153"Give up," you tell her."Three....." she begins."Uh, maybe you should do what she says," Felna suggests."Maybe we should stop this before it gets out of hand," Selna suggests. "No, they need to work this out," Ren tells her."Fight! Fight! Fight!" Sonyo and Lee chant."Two...." Galda continues."You might want to get off of her," Bulo suggests."One...." Galda hisses.>A.

>>33136312>A. Tell her to give upSom could be trying to tell us something or bluffing. Regardless.
>>33136312>E. Do as she says and get off of her, quickly!
>>33136312FObviously shes serious. So we should give her what she wants and be serious back.
>>33136312>E. Do as she says and get off of her, quickly!Every time we've tried to fight she wrecks us pretty handily, I don't think we have a chance.
>>33136087>D "You will have to make me."

>>33136508speak for yourself
>>33136312Som, would you say you are using the characters to try and hint at us to do as she says or are you simply writing what you believe the characters would say in this situation?
>>33136473She's hitting half of my fetish. Still don't care what happens
>>33136403>>33136412>>33136396>>33136374>>33136340You get off of her as quickly as you can, scurrying to your feet, and hearing sighs of relief from Sena and Felna. Galda gets to her feet, dusts herself off, and turns towards you, eyes narrowed."Smart move," she tells you before punching you in the nose.Your hands reflexively go to cover your nose as your head swims and your eyes tear up. With your hands and arms occupied elsewhere, you're kicked in the gut, then grabbed by the hair when you hunch over. She throws you onto the ground, where you land on your face. Before you can move, her foot is pressed against the back of your head."Give up. Now!" she commands.>A. Surrender and say what you promised to say>B. Never>C. Stay silent>D. Dialogue writein>E. Try to shake her off>F. Grab her leg and try to pull it off of you>G. Grab her leg and try to pull her to the ground; see if you can pin her>H. Grab a clump of dirt and try to throw it in her eyes>I.

>>33136590>D. Dialogue writein"You beat me. Are you happy now? Are you convinced I hate all non-benders, and will stop at nothing to subjugate them?"
>>33136590 >Never give upAlthough we may not win the actual battle, I want to win the moral battle
>>33136590>C. Stay silent>Not protecting ourselves the whole time she was getting up in preparation for thisMan our guy is dumb
>>33136590>H. Grab a clump of dirt and try to throw it in her eyesIt's not pocket sand but its close enough
>>33136590God you people who thought that was a good idea are fucking stupid.>I. Try to bend a rock to hit her from behind (75 or higher) Note: rolls will happen after the option has won
>>33136590>D. You know, from this angle, you look a lot like your aunt.
>>33136590Gmaybe we should headbutt her once she's on the ground
>>33136590>>I. Try to bend a rock to hit her from behind (75 or higher) Note: rolls will happen after the option has won
>>33136660We're facedown on the ground dude. No chance
>>33136665>Have no idea what could have happened>Decide this is the worst outcome despite that>"Hurr dummies!"
>>33136590>C. Stay silent
>>33136665this!beat first talk later>I. Try to bend a rock to hit her from behind (75 or higher) Note: rolls will happen after the option has won
>>33136667Pls no Som is not afraid to kill us
>>33136665We were going to get destroyed either way, can you not see how we get thrown to the floor literally every time we try something?>>33136590>>33136667This is a terrible thing to say but oh my god it's perfect, +1.
>>33136590I. Try to bend a rock to hit her from behind (75 or higher) Note: rolls will happen after the option has won

"What did you just say."You slam your right foot into the ground behind you. There is a light rumble as a chunk of earth rises. Kicking your leg back towards your body, and Galda, you hurl the earth. It strikes Galda in the back and knocks her off of you, flat onto her face.>A. Pin her, quickly!>B. Get up and back away>C. Get up and start hurling rocks>D. Dialogue writein>E. Get up and get into a defensive stance>F. Get up and step on her back>G. Get up and step on her head>H. Get up and tell her to give up>I. Get up and give up
>>33137040>F. Get up and step on her backPile rocks on, too.
>>33137040>A. Pin her, quickly!
>>33137040>>A. Pin her, quickly!
>>33137040>A. Pin her, quickly!She could maybe pull something if we try F/G, so I think this is a better option?
>>33137040The problem with using our bending is the fact that we just went back on what we said about bending being merely a tool and to throw away all of our tools for a fair fight
>>33137040>E. Get up and get into a defensive stanceDon't get cocky guys
>C. Get up and start hurling rocksthrow the rocks while she's down and bend the shit out of her, we can't beat this lunatic on close combat and she won't listen cause she's crazyi wish we could create an earth spike below her
>>33137218Well, after we said that she pretty much laughed that off and said it wasn't a fair fight soo
>>33137040>E. Get up and get into a defensive stanceShe's pretty skilled in close combat let not get a broken foot
>>33137040>>C. Get up and start hurling rocks
>>33137167>>33137105>>33137102You quickly get on top of her and pin her once again, putting your weight on top of her to keep her from getting away.You can practically feel the pure rage rolling off of her right now, and are very, very glad you have her restrained; you do not want a repeat of what she did to you a few moments ago.Instead, you get another hit to the nose as she throws her head back and slams it into your nose. Tears cloud your vision, but you don't need to see to figure out that she will probably do it again.>A. Tell her to give up>B. Tell her you give up>C. Say nothing, just stay as you are>D. Dialogue writein>E. Get off of her, quickly!>F. Slam her head into the ground>G. Grab her hair, pull her head back, and punch her in the face
>>33137283Fnon-confrontation is not working.
>>33137283Knee between the shoulder blades, hands gripping her wrists and pulling her arms back and up. Keep her arms extended.
>>33137283Ok, talking won't work, kind of wish the adults would do something but we probably count in this era. Grabbing her hair would leave her less restrained so ...>F
>>33137283>F. Slam her head into the groundWe're not using our hands for the pin? If we aren't, then this, if we are, then A)
>Fyes, there's much time to talk when she's recovering from head injuries
>>33137283>F. Slam her head into the ground
>>33137409>>33137351>>33137345>>33137336>>33137298Before she can slam her head into your nose, you slam it for her, into the ground. Grabbing a fistful of her hair, you pull her head back, then push forward, smashing it into the ground. Pulling it up, you hear her let out a shriek of rage before you slam her head again.You're suddenly knocked off of her as she's able to punch you in the side of the head. The two of you get to your feet, and you see blood coming from her nose. Of course, more noticeable is the look of sheer hatred on her face. Her fists clench and unclench, and she breaths heavily, her body trembling with fury begging to be unleashed.>A.Hurl a rock high>B. Hurl a rock low>C. Hurl a rock center>D. Dialogue writein>E. Get in a defensive stance and fight with your hands>F. Get ready to dodge>G. Get in a defensive stance and get ready to bend once you see what she's going to do>H. Tell her to give up>I. Give up
>>33137539>G. Get in a defensive stance and get ready to bend once you see what she's going to do
>>33137539Defense has not worked at all against this woman and she is faster than us so dodging won't work. I vote we go with>C.at the last possible moment.s
>>33137539If you're gonna make us lose a fight to prove a point, make us lost the fucking fight. Don't drag this shit out this long, dude. Fucking end it one way or another.
>>33137539>I.She's angry now, we'd better stop before we get seriously injured.
>I.Enough, this fight is pointless, it will only enrage her. If we win her pride will make her mad with us forever, if we lose we will not get any respect (and we probably will die lol).
>>33137607>>33137679>>33137721>>33137752Deadlock, next vote has it
>>33137774Fuck it >I
>>33137796>>33137721>>33137607You get into a defensive stance again, feeling a bit less confident than you did earlier. Galda breaks into a run, rushing you as she did in the beginning of your fight. As she gets closer, you stomp on the ground in front of you, pulling a chunk of earth free.You hurl it at her, but she slides under it and keeps coming. You hurl another, and she cartwheels to the side. You keep brining up more and more chunks of earth, hurling them at your foe, who continues to evade them. You might not be landing a hit, but you are keeping her at bay."ENOUGH!" your father yells.Both you and Galda turn tour attention to him as he storms towards the two of you."There will be NO MORE of this," he tells you angrily.(To be continued)That's it for tonight everyone, did everybody have fun?Quest will soon be up on suptg, if you enjoyed it, give it an upvote>Next thread will probably be Friday, follow me on twitter @starwarsfands for details and changers>I'll stick around to answer some questions for a bit
>>33137988Did you ever settle on our name?
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.htmlThread is archived, if you had fun, give it an upvote>>33138030That's up to you guys, I got a couple suggestions last thread, but I'm waiting a bit to put it to a vote
>>33137988How badly outmatched were we cause this felt like a losing battle?
>>33137988I didn't have fun. You know why most QMs have people roll for everything? It's because shit gets done. Protag either succeeds at something or fails. You're running this like a badly made Choose Your Own Adventure book. We just spent hours on a fight that ostensibly lasted less than two minutes. Don't give us dialog trees, give the quest a solid success/failure mechanic. As a player, it sucks to get an option and have it completely turned on its head just so you give the illusion of choice.
>>33137988I had fun, thanks for running Som.
>>33138076Pretty badly; the girl knows how to fight. But, you guys made a lot of smart choices (and had a lucky roll). You put up a much better fight than I expected.>>33138115You're welcome>>33138113Rolls have not gone well for me in the past
>>33138145How stupid of us was it to get off her the first time?
>>33138145Accept the first 3 rolls for any given option, give a crit buffer of two more if you think it'd be fun. It works.
>>33138173That depends; had you not, she would have bashed her head into your nose and gone into ragemode early. >>33138184Like I said, I tried that before.
>>33138201How sick was my burn? By which I mean, how bad of an idea was that?
>>33138236The "you look like your aunt from down here" line. Cause that was just pure antagonism on an already pissed opponent.
>>33138063Are you going to use a straw poll or a thread to have us vote on one of the suggestions
>>33138360>>33138236In this case, it worked to make her lose her focus while you hit her with a rock
