You are Shax Gloombreaker, and after a delightful dinner, a dodged arranged marriage, and finding out that everyone is pretty concerned with your future, you have found yourself in front of a supposedly haunted castle! The trees up ahead are all dead and gross looking, and you hope you don't have to actually fight any ghosts because those are just no good. Just no good at all.You have:>2/64 BtB exp>3/64 MSiF exp>49/56 CyRCTHaM exp>Shax's Stuff! So you can keep track: http://pastebin.com/U3hKZfAd>Shax Company!: http://pastebin.com/mZgVD5yH>Shax Ability Tree Finally Updated: http://pastebin.com/aBfqv1vP>I'm the boss! Points: 0>Pearls: 7If you remember correctly, this forest is supposedly patrolled by a ghost knight or something. You're hoping it is actually a zombie and the ghost part was made up. Because zombies are easy to cut up, but ghosts are filled with curses and they like to possess people and it is really spooky! You don't know what you'd do if one of your friends got possessed. At least the cyberkobolds probably don't have to worry about it. They don't have souls, right?Anyway. What is the plan!>Wander aimlessly in the forest till you get to the castle.>Figure out some cunning plan to mark the trees as you travel!>There isn't a convenient fairy girl playing music to lead you through, is there? No? Alright! Let's find a fairy girl!
>>33678367>There isn't a convenient fairy girl playing music to lead you through, is there? No? Alright! Let's find a fairy girl!Why would I pick anything else?
>>33678367>There isn't a convenient fairy girl playing music to lead you through, is there? No? Alright! Let's find a fairy girl!Acquiring a guide worked well the last time we tried it, surely it will not fail us again.
>>33678367>>There isn't a convenient fairy girl playing music to lead you through, is there? No? Alright! Let's find a fairy girl!The chance to get a bite-sized adorapanion? YES
>>33678367>There isn't a convenient fairy girl playing music to lead you through, is there? No? Alright! Let's find a fairy girl!
>>33678367>At least the cyberkobolds probably don't have to worry about it. They don't have souls, right?C'mon, Shax. Think about it for a minute. That just means they're even easier to possess!>There isn't a convenient fairy girl playing music to lead you through, is there? No? Alright! Let's find a fairy girl!Anyway, this is a great plan because if we've got a fairy we just met up front, even if we run into a ghost, it's going to possess the fairy first and we can just run away from it really fast and then find a new, less spooky fairy to lead us around.
>>33678630Ooh, that's good. I'll use that.Also, give me a d20 check to see how nice of a fairy you run into!
>>33678367>>There isn't a convenient fairy girl playing music to lead you through, is there? No? Alright! Let's find a fairy girl!They always give good directions. Though there may be traitors where we reach but that is not fairy girl's fault.
Rolled 2>>33678676True Fey here we come.
Rolled 15>>33678676Can we keep up the competence?
Rolled 5>>33678676We run into a dick fairy.She is just shaped like one. Dont be prejudiced though, she is actually really helpful
>>33678709Apparently you can, at least.
>>33678709Clearly! Though I don't know if I'd trust the guys next to you.They seem to be a little under the weather.
Rolled 4>>33678676I hope we meet a friendly fairy.
If you know one thing about haunted woods is that children always get lost in them. Goblins are pretty short, so the direction spirits must think you're a child. Because you're definitely lost. Every dead tree looks identical to the last one. Sitri was leading the way, but after a bit she shrugged and is in the middle of the pack with everyone else. There hasn't even been any sign of a monster or ANYTHING. Haunted woods? More like the most boring forest every created.All this wandering has given Xab plenty of time to read the manual on the cybolds included with his upgrade kit. Though he struggled with many of the harder words, and declared some of the potential functions as strictly heretical, he seems to have figure out some stuff! Before too long, the Cybolds were capable of switching their robot hand from a blade to a claw to a launching hook thing.After a lot more wandering a single monster wandered into your party. It tried to run away, but it really didn't have a chance, and you rode it down on your dinosaur then tied it up. It was some ugly ogre looking thing."Hey! Tell me the way outta here!" You slap it a couple of times.The brute just looks at you for a moment, cheeks reddening, "Ow. Why you gotta be so mean?" You slap him a few more times, "You've got quite the arm on you for such a skinny thing." Slap, slap, slap, "Cut it out will you?" Slap slap "Fuck, fine, you win! I don't know the way out!" Slap, slap, "Please stop! I really don't!" Slap "Alright, fine, I can take you to a fairy. She can help." You slap him one more time.He gets up and tells the group to follow, and before too long you run into a small green, winged girl."This here is the seelie baroness of this land, Alariella. She's very powerful and scary," The ogre says solemnly.She doesn't look it.>Intimidate her!>Be super nice!>Beat her up and tie her up, too!
>>33679274>Be super nice!We can be less nice if she doesn't help out.
>>33679274>Ask her to tell you the way out of here!Keep it simple for now.
>>33679274>Be super nice!Never hurts to start off being cordial.
>>33679274>Beat her up and tie her up, too!
>>33679274>Be super nice!
>>33679274OMG IT'S A FAIRY SO CUUUTE!>Try to snuggle the fairy! :D
>>33679274Be nice, but condescending.She's just too cute to take seriously
>>33679274>You slap him one more time.We should torture by way of spanks next time.Well, isn't she just perfect to try my new torture idea?>Tie her up and spank her until she promises to be our loyal minion.
>>33679383Anon, that's exactly what everyone thinks when they first see us. And then we bisect them with our giant sword.
>>33679274>>Be super nice!We are also small and green and a girl. This fairy is a kindred spirit.
>>33679400Stop being so lewd. Axe girl has corrupted Shax, filling her itsy bitsy goblin head with aspirations of being a mistress. Allonces must free her.
>>33679433>Allonces>Freeing anyone from lewd
The green haired girl pulls the brim of her wide hat down around her ears when she sees you approach, "Glorforblag! Who are these strangers?! Are they going to hurt me?"The ogre nods, "Yeah, especially this one here, she's super mean. Slapped me about one hundred times." The fairy makes an 'eep' noise and hides behind a tree. You glare at the ogre. "What? It's true." It was true, but he didn't have to be so mean!Sitri walks up and waves at the fairy. "Haha, she might have slapped him, but she was mostly frustrated from being lost! It's okay! She won't slap you!"You put your hands on your hips and puff your chest out, "Sitri's right! I am super nice!" You give an energetic wave, and your best smile, "My name is Shax! It's nice to meet you! It is okay I won't bite."The ogre cocks his head, "Now, why are you being so nice to her and you just ran me over with a dinosaur as soon as you saw me?"Xab spits out something, "You ain't cute." The Cybolds yip to reinforce that point. Whoop shrugs and gives a small nod. Nost and Rund look at each other. Nost raises his hands as if to make a point, and Rund simply shakes his head."It's alright. I've had worse looking compaions," Sitri says with a laugh, slapping the ogre on his back. You aren't going to look further into that.Seeing the general jocularity of your group, the fairy creeps a bit closer to you and offers her hand. "Hello, I'm Alariella, and I rule the court in this forest." You look around her, "Ah, there aren't any other nobles, and maybe only half a dozen knights here with me." She curtsies, "It is nice to meet you, Shax.">Slap her, Tell me everything you know!>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.>Let Sitri exposit about fae courts.>No small talk! Only questing!
>>33680004>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.
Rolled 5>>33680004>Let Sitri exposit about fae courts.I roll to see if Shax pays attention.
>>33680004>Ask to see he-Wait, aren't Fairy Courts supposed to be tricky things?>Sitri, is this a bad idea?
>>33680004>Let Sitri exposit about fae courts.>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.Do no trust the fae.
>>33680004>Let Sitri exposit about fae courts.LEARNING. (Maybe.)>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.She's definitely going to be super impressed that we have knights too.If she's the Boss of the court, that probably means she should have a knight help us find where we're trying to go rather than leading us around herself, so we might as well check out the goods so we can make sure to get a good one.
>>33680004>>Let Sitri exposit about fae courts.>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.Beat up the Fairy if she does anything Fairy like.
>>33680004>Let Sitri exposit about fae courts.Sitri is never the wrong option.
>>33680004>>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.
>>33680004>Let Sitri exposit about fae courts.>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.>Slap the ogre, Tell me everything you know!
>>33680081Eh, sometimes.The tricky thing about fairies is you don't know what parts are tricky.
>>33680004>>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.>After that little small talk get to questing!
>>33680004>Slap her, Tell me everything you know!Bully the fairy.
>>33680122Let's just not agree to anything or make any promises, for a start.
>>33680154Bad anon, only Allonces is for bullying!
>>33680185What about Blaise?
>>33680004>Ask to see her knights! Tell her your knights wear trash cans.The first choice is needlessly mean, and the other two are boring. Let's do this one!
>>33680225Different kind of bullying. Only in the bedroom.
>>33680163I don't know if we can get anything from her if we don't, though.Some fey want to help, some want to hurt, and they all act the pretty much same way and follow the same rules. It's not the contracts or the rules or the promises, it's the intentions of the fey only that comes down to being screwed over.You just got to be a good judge of character and maybe take a leap of faith when it comes to fey.
>>33680225That's a good pic, anon I like youI like you a lotJust for you I'm gonna write
>>33680225We just need to make sure that everyone knows that Bliase is our meido.
>>33680279I aim to please.
>>33680317Way too lewd!
>>33680276Thankfully, we can skip all that character judging business. We rolled a 15 and the dice don't lie.She'll only try to screw us over a little.
"Anyway, did he say you were a seelie baroness?" Sitri leans over and puts on a serious face when looking at the girl, "That's interesting, shoudln't the unseelie court be in power this season? You guys should have traded off fairly recently."The fairy girl makes a surprised face, "Ehhh? How'd you know about that sorta stuff? Sitri tosses her hair with a confident smile on her face, "Heh. Don't underestimate me. I'm an experienced bard seeking out many different tales! A simple matter like keeping track of local regions seasonal fae court changes is just part of the job. Wouldn't your knights get a hell of a lot weaker as the season wore on? You should be feeling pretty ill yourself. But you look fine." Sitri is giving her a suspicious look. You don't know anything about fairies. You were just told to not eat any food they offer.The ogre looks slightly nervous, but the fairy girl just giggles a bit, "You're a bit off on your calendar. I just took over. Anyway, why are you here?""Gonna loot that castle," You blurt out, "Can ya tell me how to get there?" She places a finger on her lips and looks unsure. "I can make it worth your while." She glances at you."How?"Shrugging, "I dunno. But I'm sure we can figure someting out?"The fairy girl gets an odd look to her, "Alright. Kill that annoying ghost knight and I'll show you how to get to the castle.""Whaaaat, that guy is real?" The fairy crosses her arms and nods, "I dunno where he is, though." The fairy rolls her eyes. "But you do, obviously. Obviously.">Sure thing!>I ain't your errand girl
>>33681086>Slap the fairy and demand that she show you the entrance to the castleI ain't afraid of no ghosts but this fairy is the worst!
>>33681086>Sure thing!Shax ain't scared a no ghost
>>33681086>Sure thing!This fairy is pretty suspicious.
>>33681086>Sure thing!Well, our sword's magical and shit, so we should hopefully be able to cut a ghost, right? Right?Although if he proves too troublesome, we're gonna deliver slaps when we come back from killing him.
>>33681086>Sure thing!So we just kill some loser's ghost who got NTRed by an ogre king or something?Sounds easy.
>>33681086>>Sure thing!Never not do favors.
>>33681153Oh god how I wish that was a thing
>>33681086>Sure thing!Well, this is probably maybe not a trap because we got a decent roll earlier.
>>33681086What would a 20 on the fairy roll have gotten us?
>>33681086>Sure thing!If we've learned nothing from our adventures it's that you accept every single quest, and if something else comes up down the line you can just decide not to do it later.Smash an altar? Sure! Decide to claim the altar for yourself later? No problem! Get a rock for an elemental guy? Why not? Give it to Squidface instead because he asked nicely? Definitely!Heck, if it weren't for the fact that ghosts are spooky and weird, I wouldn't be surprised if we decided to just ask the ghost knight to show us the way once we get there instead.
>>33681312A faerie noble in love with shax at first sight.He'd only try to eat her dreams sometimesAnyway! Writing.
>>33681086>>Sure thing!Quests are our specialty!

>>33681767You, on the other hand...
>>33681179no, I1m pretty sure we passed up the chance to use the second orb to enchant our sword so it could cut immaterial beings (I'm still sad we don't have a godkiller sword ;_;). Our sword is just really really hard.Although, now that I think about it, spending a seamom point should allow us to cut anything since we have the passive cut anything skill too. And I think ghosts fall under 'anything'
>>33681834To be fair, what is better? A god slaying blade, or godhood?
>>33681834I still want to cut a ripple in reality and water-walk inside.>>33681905Go for extra-credit and get both.
>>33681905Both. Both is good.
You shrug, "Sure thing. As long as it lets me get into the castle." The green fairy claps her hands together and lets out an innocent sounding laugh."Delightful! My knights will show you the way, then." She rolls some absolutely horrifying combination of vowels out from her mouth and three creatures show up. Each is clad in diaphonous green armor, and using some sorta strange bug as a mount. In their hands are spears with flowers around the blade. Kinda weird. One inclines its head at you, and turns around, speeding off. Quickly, you motion for your boys to follow and you head out.Quickly, the mass copse of trees give way to small vestiges of civilization. Crumbling flgstones appear, and form a more solid road the further along you travel. The fae knights slow down quickly as you reach a strange looking fountain, that seems to be pumping ichor through the pipes. Gross."He normally hunts around here, goblin. May your blade strike true. If you fulfill your end of the bargain, Alariella will find you shortly thereafter." Giving a short nod again, the knight flies off with his companions. Odd bunch.After standing around with your minions for a few monets, Rund approaches you, "What the heck do we do now, boss?" Those seem to be the magic words, and you hear the braying of a horse from close by.A black miasma surrounds a heavily armored figure on horseback as it comes charging into your group, sword scything menacingly! You manage to dodge to one side, your sword passing through the horse harmlessly as it runs down a Cybold, cutting the creature in two.When it comes back around, you aim at the knight himself, this time connecting solidly and knocking him off his horse, but gets up quickly. By the way he fends off a few probing attacks, it looks like he knows a thing or two about swording.>Mob him! Tear him apart!>Let's mob and capture him because why not!>Challenge him to single ritualized combat! No spells, no armor, just one on one swords dueling!
>>33682319>Challenge him to single ritualized combat! No spells, no armor, just one on one swords dueling!HAVE AT THEE
>>33682319>Challenge him to single ritualized combat! No spells, no armor, just one on one swords dueling!Make sure Blaise is watching

>>33682319>Challenge him to single ritualized combat! No spells, no armor, just one on one swords dueling!
>>33682319It's always time to d-d-duel on /tg/.
>>33682319Why not just spend a sea point and Cuttle him? It's not like he can parry that.
>>33682319>>Challenge him to single ritualized combat! No spells, no armor, just one on one swords dueling!
>>33682457Even if he dodges it, there's no way he'll dodge the second or third Cuttles!
>>33682319Hey Chief.Saw this and thought of Shax.Also>It's time to d-d-d-d-d-duel!
Does Shax even wear appreciable armor? This condition seems slightly unfair.
>>33682541Can ghosts even take off armor? It'd get filched if he did.
Alright! So give me a d20 then, if you're so great!
Rolled 10>>33682594Shax is da greatest!

>>33682776Isn't the average in 12-13 range? I would do actual math but I won't.
>>33682803Come on guys, the average for this roll is literally 29/3. It's not even math, it's like breathing.

>>33682913Ahh, sorry then.
"Hey! This guy is a swordsman like me! Stay back, boys. I'mma duel him." You hold your sword out in an attack stance, slowly circling the knight as he does the same.A raspy voice seems to tear through the air, "Honor? From a goblin?" It seems full of spite, "I had thought the whipping boys of orcs to be no better than they. Perhaps I was wrong." He readies his weapon and dashes in with a low sweep!You figure meeting him head on is fine. You've got more power than him... probably. You smash your sword down overhead to knock him off balance when he gets close, pulling back in a half spin to bring your sword about in another brutal arc. He manages to duck under your strike, bringing his blade up at your neck, but only glances you as you roll back from his attack. Jeez, when was the last time you even got hit?? This guy is fast! He ducks out from inside your reach before you can bring your guard close.This calls for some old school tactics! As you get enough distance, you start up a spin, careening towards the knight in a whirlwind of destruction. He easily sidesteps and dodges out of your range, circling behind you with a quick step. When you slow down to change directions, he steps in, letting loose another flurry of blows you have to block with your sword. You can barely follow his movement!Slamming your blade forward to try and keep his feet unstable, you start unleashing your own storm of attacks. If spinning to win doesn't work, you'll just have to use actual sword play! You've got the strength, balance and skill for that now! His guard starts to falter as you continue to rain blows, tearing the landscape apart in your pursuit of the knight. It isn't long before you manage to catch him with a solid blow, glancing though it may be, and knock him to his feet, leveling your blade at his head."I yield, goblin girl. I've not seen a savage display like that before in my long, long life.">Finish him!>Interrogate him!>Make Blaise clean your sweat off.
>>33683408>>Interrogate him!"I yield, goblin girl. I've not seen a savage display like that before in my long, long life."Wait! Aren't you dead?
>>33683408>Interrogate him!Tell Blaise to get us some tea!
>>33683408>Make Blaise clean your sweat off.>Commend him for giving you a good fight>Interrogate him!
>>33683408>Make Blaise clean your sweat off.>Interrogate him!
>>33683408>Make Blaise clean your sweat off.>Interrogate him!Her mistress needs a very thorough cleaning after that, we even had to try for that one. We can interrogate him while she does that.
>>33683408>Interrogate him!>Make Blaise clean your sweat off.The perks of a meido!
>>33683408>>Finish him!Fae girl said to kill him and that's what I wanna do.
>>33683408>Interrogate him."That was fun! What's your name again?"
>>33683539Eh. If we can recruit him, he's out of their hair either way.
>>33683408>Interrogate him!>Make Blaise clean your sweat off.
>>33683539>not getting the dude to settle whatever his deal is with her and joining her court as a knight
>>33683539We didn't promise to kill him, we only agreed that they'd show us the way if we did. Skely can peobably show us to the castle, so the deal is useless to us now, and we broke no contracts (it's not like there's a time limit set)
>>33683408>Make Blaise clean your sweat off.
>>33683588If she wanted that she would have said so.>not blindly following cute fae orders like a dopeIt's like you don't want to be caught in a web of deception!
>>33683408>Interrocruite him.Clearly once we jack the shit he's protecting his new roll will be to protect our loot (which we looted from him) from the predations of other looters that might jack our loot from us. Plus as a ghost he totally fits in with our team.
>>33683626>Having a ghost on our teamIf he dies, how would Bearbreath revive him?
>>33683625I don't have time for webs of deception!Why do you think we've all stopped giving a fuck about getting involved with the evil dude's world conquering campaign in favor of visiting random dungeons and killing gods?
>>33683673Obviously as a ghost of a randomly selected species, duh
>>33683588It's pretty clear this guy is a Seelie champion and the baroness we talked to earlier just muttered the "un" part of unseelie so softly that we didn't hear it before. So the question is, do we want to set ourselves up as the new supreme ruler of the unified fae courts? Or do we just play them against each other?
>>33683625I think Shax's bullheaded and fickle attitude gives people very little room to be deceived. She does what she wants and that's it.Hell, that lizard guy who betrayed us didn't even deceive us, he just got dragged along and thought, "hey, why not stab this chick while she's down?"
Jeez we still haven't entered the castleI need to get this show on the road! Writing.
>>33683673More importantly, how would he die?
>>33683754I don't think this sidequest has time for that.I'd like to come out of this with a fairy companion, but we already have Allonces filling the pet role.
>>33683787We obviously need to collect all the sidequests and allies we can.
"Blaise!" You shout, looking at the maid with your hands on your hips.She stares at you. "What?" You give her a glare and she rolls her eyes, "Mistress.""Fightin' this dude got me all yucky. Towel me off!""You cannot be serious." You simply tap your foot in response as she groans and grabs a towel, walking over to where you are. It's good to be chief.With Blaise attending you, you give the knight a good look. "So, take off your helmet. I can't properly interrogate a tin can.""As you wish," Putting a hand on his visor, he unlatches his helmet, pulling it off. Underneath is a smooth skull, completely cleaned of any flesh. It has a clean, polished appearance. Not at all yellow or cracked.Blaise's movements come to a jerky stop, and she quickly wrings the towel and turns her back on the knight. Is she spooked? You feel a little less spooked now that Blaise is spooked. Gotta be brave for the boys, after all. You point a finger at him, "How'd you get all bony? I heard it was a curse."The knight nods, "It was that, aye, and more. My noble soul was twisted by the women I loved. She enslaved the demon who conquered this castle. Turned him into her familiar. With his powers, she ruled as a shadow queen of an orcish empire that lasted over a hundred years. I stayed here, cursed to forever guard the depths of her betrayal against all comers.""And did you? I mean, I gotta know if there is still loot in there.""Oh, aye. No one has stepped foot inside on my watch." Sitri said people had, though. Well, he seems like he wouldn't let more than a few in, anyway!>Kill him off! Let's get the fairy to take us there.>Make him take you to the castle! You'll need to diplomance him, though.
>>33684356>>Kill him off! Let's get the fairy to take us there.But first we ask him if he'd like to go to the afterlife. Hey! Maybe we can start an afterlife of our own and he can be the first one to go there!

Fey want whatever is in the castle for themselves. Don't let them have it.
Guys!This dude actually knows shit about the castle. Fairy chick just knows where it is. He's a much better guide.
>>33684356>Make him take you to the castle! You'll need to diplomance him, though.Pretty sure fairy girl is just jerking us around. Let's go with this guy. Never, ever, trust a fae.
>>33684356>>Kill him off! Let's get the fairy to take us there.
>>33684611Hmph. Never trust a goblin, from her perspective.
>>33684356>Make him take you to the castle! You'll need to diplomance him, though.Never trust a fairy.
>>33684356>Diplomance!He's a dark knight, Shax is a Dark Queen that is actually loyal to her minions rather than backstabby. We can totally you which boy to modify his curse and hook him up with a new job working for us.
>>33684640Just shows she's too smart to trust.
Fairies are so cute and innocent!Writing.
>>33684674Somehow that image fills me with sparkly dread.
>>33684674Pfft, I'm an extreme fairy fetishist and even I recognize this guy's the better option.
Actually! Give me a d20 diplomancorlator roll.
Rolled 2>>33684733ROLLING TO SAVE
Rolled 1>>33684733Ho crap!
>>33684674We were so eager for fairy at the start of the thread too...I still blindly trust you, fae.
>>33684741Well, looks like we might have to kill him anyway
>>33684767>trusting the fae
Rolled 15>>33684741This is the OWQ I remember.That string of good luck had me feeling very out of place.Guess we're killing this guy and going with the fairy.Let's try and not let her know about this!
>>33684741So...How about that fairy, huh? Trustworthy gal that. I'm sure she'll show us the way.
>>33684808>Let's try and not let her know about this!Let's let her know about this at the first opportunity!
>>33684808Why would we want to cut the fairy in on our loot?
>>33684767Meh, if this dude didn't seem pretty solid and far more knowledgeable about our destination, I'd go with the fairy, even with the suspicious behavior.
>>33684808>>33684828We could roll for it.
>>33684741what's wrong?pull the triggerWriting.
>>33684741It's because we made Blaise do something icky! Her rival boon is temporarily out of commission!
>>33684880O-okay.>that feel when I liked Skeleton Knight
>>33684843Why would we let her take our loot? You're acting like we can't slap her if she gets uppity.Though if we roll a 1 at the wrong time, she might turn out to be a stupidly powerful fae who lied about her rank.
>>33684901You'll be able to see him soon, anon.
>>33684925>lied about her rankDude, she fucking lied about which team she's playing for. That girl is bad news.
>>33684971Sure, but my point was that it won't matter unless the dice gods frown on us. I'm sure we can go this whole sidequest without rolling a 1 an triggering her betrayal like what happened with lizard guy.
>>33684925>>33684971Depending on how Chief is doing fae, she might be physically incapable of straight up lieing.
>>33685092Damn it, now i miss gobble's pokemon quest.
>>33685061She is! Can't break a promise either. And putting her in cold iron handcuffs would not go over well!
>>33685165So we just gotta get Sitri to make her promise stuff under duress? Awesome.
>>33685165Be honest now Chief, dis /she/ tell you that?
>>33685251I only listen to one woman: mai waifu.
"So, if you've kept anyone from enterin' the castle, then how does my goat girl over here know what's inside of it?" You point a thumb at Sitri, who is standing behind you with her arms crossed and looking kinda bored.Regarding her for a moment, the skull turns back to face you once more. "I wouldn't trust the words of a spawn of chaos, goblin."Sitri takes offense to that, "Hey, I'm just letting Shax know what I've heard, is all.""And you've heard untruths. No one has stepped inside."You give Sitri a grin, "That's good news, right? It means all the loot is there! So skeleton man, show us the way! I won't have to smash you to bits that way."The knight does not budge. "I'm afraid I physically am incapable of doing anything that might lead someone to the castle. It is a part of my curse."Whoop walks up, "This one could probably do something about that which afflicts you."The skeleton knight shakes his head, "Please, you've defeated me. Let me not suffer any longer on this plane." Whoop bows and then blasts him with some sort of purifying light."Go now, sufferer, to the sea of miracles."You raise a hand, "Uh, Whoop? I wasn't done talkin' to him."His wide, frog like eyes seem even more shocked than their usual appearance suggests. "Oh, this one didn't... apologies." You pat him on the shoulder. A short time later a knight arrives with Alariella. "Heya, Shax! I see you took care of our little knight problem. Let's talk about that castle, shall we?">What's there to talk about? Take me over to the place.>I'm listeniiiiiing?
>>33685572>I'm listeniiiiiing?This talking better be something nice.
>>33685572>What's there to talk about? Take me over to the place.>I'm listeniiiiiing?Walk and talk like they do in West Wing
>>33685572>What's there to talk about? Take me over to the place.>talkTOP KEKTake us to the fucking castle.
>>33685572>I'm listeniiiiiing?Are we gonna have to spank a fairy?
>>33685572...and she's already claimed and looted it.Lovely.
>>33685572>>I'm listeniiiiiing?Gonna kick your ass if I don't like what I hear.
>>33685665We'll just loot her then
>>33685665So what if she has? We'll just loot her place. It's probably got even more loot than the castle did.
>>33685572>His wide, frog like eyes seem even more shocked than their usual appearance suggests. "Oh, this one didn't... apologies." You pat him on the shoulder.Whoop needs some appreciation here. Maybe we can flood a village for Sea Mom sometime. I bet he'd like that.
"Before we begin, I must explain to you the glorious history of my noble lineage and how this relates to the cursed castle before you. You see, it all began when-" All this talking is making you hungry. You idly wonder if eating while having important conversations all the time the past several months has given you some sorta mental conditioning to want to be chewing on something when someone wants to have a conversation. Maybe you're just really hungry. You've felt pretty hungry lately, even though you've been eating a lot. Hopefully it isn't a parasite? You don't think it would be one, and besides, Allonces' health powers woulda stopped you from getting one, right? Patting your stomach, you look down abit worriedly as Sitri raises her hand to ask a few questions that get answered. "-And that brings us to the crux of the matter, Shax," Your instincts tell you that you should pay attention again. "That very emblem was the favor given by my mother to the greatest knight who had ever lived. His name was-" Okay, your instincts were wrong. You give Blaise a worried look.The maid clears her throat and raises a hand, and when addressed, "Pardon me, but time is of the essence. What do you want us to do about all that?"Alariella pulls her hat down around her ears, "I'm sorry, don't yell at me. I wanted you to try and find my mother's mirror in the castle. It's a precious family heirloom. Pure silver, unicorns on the sides, and a roaring lion at the top. It would be hard to miss. Please?"You wave your hand, "Sure whatever, where is the castle." The fairy offers a smirk."It's a promise, then." There is an odd weight you feel from that statement, but you ignore it as you find yourself in front of the castle.>Bust the doors down. The party is here. Wreck any opposition!>Knock on the door. Just cause it is filled with ghosts and spirits doesn't mean you can't be polite.
>>33686324>>Knock on the door. Just cause it is filled with ghosts and spirits doesn't mean you can't be polite.If we are too rowdy we might break the mirror and that'll be all kinds of bad.
>>33686324Knock on the door, then bust it downCome up with a witty entrance one-liner first
>>33686324>>Knock on the door. Just cause it is filled with ghosts and spirits doesn't mean you can't be polite.
>>33686324>>Knock on the door. Just cause it is filled with ghosts and spirits doesn't mean you can't be polite....Did Allonces get Shax pregnant during their drunken episode? I mean, I know they're both female, but goblins seem to be awfully fertile.
>>33686324Fuuuuuck you Fairy. Forcing a promise binding on Shax. We'll return your mirror and then kill you.
>>33686324Meant to post this last thread but I ran out of time.>>33560904>>Belt Bra>pls don't put my fetishes on shaxYOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO CHIEF, YOU'RE NOT MY REAL DAD
>>33686598Oh no, she has forced us to do something we would have done anyway. Shax won't even notice there was a binding promise.
>>33686541That's just weird, dude. Anyway! I'm about to pass out so I'm calling it here. We'll start next thread off with you politely knocking on a spooky castle door!It was a lot of fun, but I was distracted and running slow so I apologize. I hope you dudes enjoyed it as well! I'm running Monday cause I need at least one day off from working and also running quests. I hope to see you then! Planning on running around 1 pm EST, but we'll see what happens.We're gettin' pretty close to where I wanna be for ENDGAME, so I'm happy with that.Thanks a whole lot for playing, reading, and putting up with my general slowness! Have a wonderful night!Should I make one of those ask.fm things? It feels like hopping on a bandwagon, but they seem pretty neat. I dunno.
>>33686619Even so, it's still a big dick move to do that.
>>33686663Thanks for the thread. As for the ask.fm, do what ya want bro. Bandwagons or whatever don't matter.
>>33686663Considering how your quest works, an ask.fm would be you making shit up constantly.so.............. if you feel like doing that for all our inane questions. Or we could ask you stuff during the thread.
>>33686605It's gettin' hot in here huh...
>>33686663>We're gettin' pretty close to where I wanna be for ENDGAME, so I'm happy with that.>ENDGAMESay it ain't so Chief
>>33686663Thanks for running Chief.I know you're still probs too busy to post that fanart collection somewhere, but I just figured I'd remind you anyway.
>>33686605Whoah>>33686663It was fun>EndgameAwww
>>33686598>"I want you to try and find [...]"Technicality's on our side this time at least.>>Yeah, we tried to find t, but couldn't, sorry.>>Yeah, we found it. Oh? We left it there, of course, we don't have time to carry shitty mirrors around when there's loot to be looted.>>Yeah, we found it, it looked pretty cool so I decided to keep it, thanks for the tip.These option are all valid and technically don't break the promise. (We could give it to her then take it from her too, of course, but I'm afaid it might be an instant powerup for her.)
>>33686820Oh shit, you're right. She didn't make us promise to return it to her, just to find it. We can totally keep it and her promise powers can't do a thiing.
>>33686820Why wouldn't we want to give it to her? She hasn't done anything mean to us yet.>it's lootNevermind I'm dumb. Go ahead and piss her off for another shiny. Maybe it'll make her a recurring enemy!
>>33686704So take off all your belts.
>>33686605Now all we need is a picture of Shax dressed up as a Ninja Turtle
>>33687250K, I'll do that next.
>>33687047A fairy promise binding is pretty mean, no matter how you swing it. Doesn't matter if Shax would have done it anyway, making her compelled to do it is wrong.
>>33687250>oversized crystal shell>strapped to her with belts
>>33687342Its shax's retirement plan. She moves to her own personal island to live as a turtle.
>>33687313I don't think it's mean at all if the person bound is told about it.Which didn't happen here. So you're right.
>>33686746>that armet I have the exact same thing on my shelf.
