You are Katie Black, High-school social reject turned neurotic reptile with a lisp following the loss of a squabble with a cinderblock and physics. Right now you're traveling with a group of rough looking men after having made the ultimate fool of yourself, but on the bright side at least it's liberating to know that now that you've already damned yourself you have nothing more to fear... or at least you wish that was the case. At the very least you're not being shanked with a burning pitch fork.The birds are chirping, the air is damp yet fresh, Steve is griping about the muddy path you're following and the suns shining brilliantly through the treeline, you feel completely out of place here.For some reason you feel a little more at ease around Eddie, he's a nice guy. He even lent you his sweater after noticing how uncomfortable you were, leaving him in a filthy vest blacked through mining whatever the fuck it was they were mining down there. It barely fits around your shoulders and hangs down past your waist, it even smells like ass rubbed in charcoal. But you're glad you're in it.The fact that the other miners, who have since piled your kills on top of minecarts, likely contaminating it... the fuckwits... the fact that they've kinda broken off and segregated the two of you as a separate group is doing wonders for your social anxiety... you bet it's because you killed those boars en mass, maybe it's because your a snake... but they seemed to be alright with..- Or what if your the one keeping away from them... but you can't just get closer now, that would be weird. what if you-
>>38849264You're interrupted by Eddie "almost there Katie, just over these hills" Nodding gingerly "o-ok" You notice now that the treeline is thinning, the men give a sigh of relief as their carts crest the hill and roll down with ease. The jungle and trees thin out rapidly, replaced with stumps and dead foliage for roughly 100 meters before the settlement comes into focus, and with it your chances of ever browsing 4chan again go right out the window. It's like something straight out of a history textbook, if a lot more industrious.Smoke bellows from chimneys in the distance, although you wonder why they'd need the heat in the fucking tropics, it's mostly wooden but you can't see inside due to the palisade walls coating it. Looks more like a fortress on closer inspection, but the entire thing is surrounded by fields of red flowers. Curious.>What's with the flowers ed?>So uh, are there any shops around here?>Write in?
>Previously on nerdy snake waifu quest: https://archive.moe/tg/search/tripcode/%21Me.qpOlLW2/type/op/This twitter thing everyone's talking about - https://twitter.com/DrUnorigionalDifficulty: This crappy quest will have a difficulty setting that you can change at any time if you so wish, just ask, use it tactically.>Easy mode: (Half XP) You get 5 dice rolls, best roll taken, the entire world is sunshine and rainbows. Only lasts for 5 in game story posts.>Normal (defult): (Normal XP rates and encounters.)You get 3 rolls, best dice taken.>challenging: (Double XP!) You only get 2 rolls, best of 2. >Hard mode: (Triple XP and more loot.) You get 2 rolls but we use an average instead of the best one. Bad luck comes your way and shit is getting perilous, pray to the dice gods for mercy.>Punishing: (Quadruple XP and allot of cool stuff just left lying around. )You only got one shot, make it count. 1 roll. Enemies are written as more competent/ better equipped, E.G if encountered then regular wolves will become larger dire wolves ect. You may get your shit pushed in.>Nightmare mode: (10 times exp) Awww shit son u gon die. The worst of 3 rolls is taken, the world shifts to grimdderp and bad things happen. You can't turn it off for 10 in game posts.Fate point: QM steals from khornette quest because he is a filthy hack, you can reroll one dice per session. Only once, and use that instead.Dub rolls = +30Trip rolls = +90
>Current level = 20>Difficulty = Challenging.XP: current/total = level.For example. 35 exp collected vs a 60 for evolution = level 58Every 25 levels you get some kind of passive perk that might have an effect on your next evolution. Whatever you choose gets strengthened as and if you evolve.Experience is given via difficulty and is relative. Remember to use the difficulty setting tactically, you can't raise it until after the fight is over.>Mundane = 1 or even 0 XP. Shit like killing insects or knitting.>Easy: 1-3 EXP, picking a lock or successfully hunting small prey.>Medium: 5-10 EXP hunting larger prey that can fight back but really can't win.>Challenging: 10-25: Shit that can fight back but not exactly life threatening.>Threatening: 25-50 Something that could very well kill you and puts up a fair fight. 1V1 me faggot.>Deadly: 50-100+ a (much?) larger/stronger opponent that may have the odds stacked in their favour
>>38849303>Current level is 26, disregard everything I say I suck dicks
>>38849266>What's with the flowers ed?
>>38849266>>What's with the flowers ed?Thats actually an interesting question. Shops are irrelavent seeing we have no money and can't produce valuable luxury items out of our ass like moths and arachne can.
>>38849266>What's with the flowers ed?We are leveling to fast. The ranks don't feel like they have any achievement behind them. And we have barely begun and we are already rank 2 and 1/5. But I love the MC and I like the QMs take on the setting. I've also started writing a smutbin for if we stick around in this region/town for a good period of time.
>>38849348wait... yo >>38849303, do we get an upgrade to produce luxury resources out of our ass for profit later or no?
>>38849266What are we going to do at a shop? Drop dead pigs on the counter and hiss at the shopkeep until they start throwing things at us in a desperate attempt to get us to leave?
>>38849367Snakes don't do that.. unless you skin them. Shed skin isn't worth anything.
>>38849348Our venom might have some value if we can milk it, could be worth looking into if they have some sort of alchemist or herbalist that might buy it.
>>38849372I'll be honest your interpretation is temping as hell.
>>38849388We could milk ourself of venom and sell it to seedier folks...
>>38849367That's be fucking awesome, but noe.>>38849357You're probably right, stop playing on challenging and picking fights with hordes of wild animals.>>38849330>>38849348>>38849357>>38849358wtf IS up with those flowers anyway?Writing.
>>38849421We could also learn how to mix it and become a chemist/alchemist.
>>38849406I'm pretty sure the people who'd want venom the most are those asshole humans in that city who hate everyone.
>>38849421Speaking of which I have an option for hallucinogenic venom stashed away somewhere as a possible special attack
Also just because people keep voting horns for magic, if you read the other Re:monster quest or the manga. Magic can also be used from magic stones we can find/buy. I'm pretty sure horn will just increase our magical aptitude or let us cast without a stone.
>>38849444Uhm... did you not see what happened in Re: Lizard quest when hallucinogenic substances got involved? We don't want to accidentally summon smokey the bear here... I doubt he'd appreciate our pyromaniac tendencies.
>>38849367Our venom might be worth something.And yeah, what's up with the flowers.I read all 6 previous threads in the archive 2 days ago, I've been F5ing 4chan since yesterday. Dr. Hue, get to work!
>>38849426Speaking of modes I thought you said at the start of each thread we were going to reset to default? Or did you decide against that?
>>38849472No fuck that we need to summon Smokey and go full odd couple
>>38849472Hey, it probably won't come to that.More likely we'd get McGruff the Crime Dog, knowing Katie.
>>38849472>>38849505On harder modes, we'd get the fume knight. Good thing we're a dex build now.
>>38849527>Tfw 20 threads or so down the road we need to beat fume knight IRL.
>>38849547Pretty sure He'd be a human adventurer with dealing in the demonic, an undead or a demon. He's probably give Lyra trouble ATM. We'll need 40 threads.
>>38849266There's something bugging you, besides the fact that you feel like you're dragging Eddie down with you to social rock bottom. It's those flowers, just a massive patch sitting in front of a dirty looking medieval settlement. Planted in rows... why, just why... Oh wait, this is a great opportunity to start a conversation."sssssso E-eddie, what um, w-why the f-flowersssss-" you're really starting to hate that lisp.Thankfully you feel a lot less awkward when Eddie brightens up "OH that? They make those flowers into medicine to sell back in the homeland, you can also smoke the resin, lotta people do that round here but I seriously recommend you don't" he finishes with nervous laughter. "it's a... it's not good for yo-" you've stop listeningYou feel like you just got punched in the gut, the first patch of civilization you find is a heroin plantation. As if you needed something else to worry about than potential druglords.Pipe man takes another puff, you notice he's been smoking the entire time. These people are probably all criminals."and that's why you shouldn't take strangers up on opium, seriously, don't"A familiar puff of smoke wafts past, one now you're even more keen to avoid "you talk a load of shit Ed, this stuffs golden" So that's why pipemans voice sounds like cement mixer, you thought he was just a chain smoker.Steve laughs, Eddie says something about kids being present. The other guys are still weary or just don't give a fuck.>B-BUT ONII-SAN DOING DRUGS IS BAD, and highly illegal.>Just keep quiet about it.>Write in.
>>38849488Yea I decided against that. Challenging is way more !fun! Op actually forgot. OP is a fucktard
>>38849737>>Just keep quiet about it.This doesn't seem smart to speak up. Also they didn't really freak out we're part snake. Plus giant spider ladies and shit vultures. We don't want to stand out. Plus if we didn't know it was impossible it seems like we got stuck in a game world.

>>38849921If you made opium in some shithole town 500 miles from everything except shit flinging vulture ape things you'd want a wall too.
>>38849737AshlieIt's a surprisingly relaxed atmosphere for a group going into a dangerous drug den... come to think of it were drugs even illegal in medieval times? Regardless you hunch over slightly. There's still going to be a fuckton of people in there and it'll totally be a spectacle, you don't do well on stage, last time you vomited in front of the school. Eyes wide and sweating profusely like a fat lass at a disco, shaking slightly... you wouldn't be surprised if somebody thought you were having a mild aneurism.You jump, letting out a surprised hiss when you feel a hand on your shoulder. "hey no worries, the people here are nice enough" well jee thanks eddie, but you're not a mutant snake creature with no legs....Steve whistles and waves "oi ashi" you look and freeze, all the breath leaving your body like a oblivious gerbil being ejected out the air lock for science. It's one of those giant spider creatures, and it's staring right at you with it's 6 eyes.It's... got a rather blank expression on it's pale white face, it-she you realize, glances at Steve for a second then turns away, ignoring him.You vaguely notice someone making a joke at Steve's expense, but mainly you're focusing on hiding behind Eddie like a little girl from her kissy kissy grandmother, because that's one fuckhuge spider.You hear laughing. Eddie pats you on the shoulder "yea that's the resident lumberjack, she needs some time to warm up to people so I wouldn't worry">Just enter the fucking village already for fuck sake>ummm, wot?

>>38850138>Just enter the fucking village already for fuck sakeSo small village with monster people living with normal people?
>>38850257Who're you calling monsters!? It's just a village of normal people, nothing else, only some have slightly different body types.#ableism
>>38850284>slightly different body typesKids these days don't remember the Great War. Those things do nothing but steal our jobs and rape our women.
>>38850331>I'm now imagining the notion of a civil war between the obese and skinny>on the one hand one side is far more agile and healthy>on the other the other side has so much more biomass
>>38850372Question.What if you have the fat body type but are kind of poor so you are actually skinny, making your huge bone frame look like a weird pile of antlers with skin stretched tight around them?
>>38850390You inhabit the greying middle zone of No Man's land because YOU'RE A FILTHY ABHUMAN YOU ANTLER SKIN MONSTROSITYI'm pretty sure there isn't such a thing as being fat boned. I guess you might have a really large ribcage?
>>38850390>fat body typeWhat? You look fat but aren't fat?I think your just fat anon.
>Not half the opportunity to kill things in the village/small town.>We don't level and remain a little girl snake for an extended timeI can see why people decided to follow the miners.
>>38850138How could you have missed that exactly, she's only 20 feet away dragging a fuckhuge pile of logs towards the settlement. Do they use giant fucking spiders instead of forklifts around here?Looking around, seems nobody else besides Steve is really paying any kind of attention to it. And it's not the kind of attention you'd expect a guy to be giving a giant spider either....Disturbing implications aside, that IS a giant spider butt, a mostly white with blotches spider butt, even her hair is white. You notice there's a scar across her arm before vaguely human flesh meets grey chitin... normally you don't study the bodies of other women... well you do, but not nearly so openly."Something wrong" you jump slightly, somewhat embarrassed yet still unable to take your eyes off the giant spider lady, who despite being even further from a mammal than you are still has bigger tits than you. This is bullshit universe."n-no it'sssssss jussssst.... uh...giant ssssspider?" Smooth.Eddie stares at you for a while "uuuh, yea. They live all over the forest, nice people." Nice? NICE!?You can scarcely believe this shit "t-thatssss normal?!?"The man shrugs "yea I guess, I mean it takes a bit of getting used to at first y'know, but you get used to it pretty quickly. We even have a few Lamia here you might like to meet" Oh wow so this place is infested with monster people and nobody gives a single fuck, you did all that worrying for nothing. You don't know whether to laugh or cry."um...w-what are Lamia?"He points at your face causing you to go briefly cross-eyed "you, you're a Lamia"".....oh">Take me to your snake people (ask who they are?)>write in?

>>38850469I've got huge, fat-made bones from being a fat child. They're all warped from the fat-stresses to be perfect for draping lots of fat on, and have all kinds of spurious warps and bends for this effect.Now that I'm a skinny fuck, they are clearly visible.

>>38850601Fuck snake people. They abandoned us to die in a forest. Eddie is the only guy we need to follow.>>38850632Do we really need to tell them we are from another world and look insane and dangerous rather then cute and distressed? It's not even in character. No.
>>38850601>Take me to your snake people (ask who they are?)Yes and also what other monster folk live around these parts.
>>38850689I actually am glad there are snake people about. We won't get to know them, of course, because of awkwardness, but we MIGHT.
>>38850644I did some cursory googling and found this, which is said to be the differences in growing up thin or obese.Is this what you mean?
>>38850678>Maybe one of them can explain how we got here?What, like backstory? You think they will recognize us from our mother or something?

>>38850838It presumably also doesn't have the skull of a gorilla.
>>38850796No. But maybe all the monstergirls came here through a similar process. Some might have a better understanding of it than others.
>>38850861look I can't see my own skull
>>38850872Vampyric jelly monster confirmed.
>>38850796More like "Oh yeah, I got hit by a falling piano", darnedest thing really.
>>38850788That's pretty damn fake. They didn't even try really. It's an ape or else just outright fake.>>38850838Look anon, you might have bone deformation from weight stress but that's doubtful unless you weight over 200kg for 20 years. Bones are bones, being fat doesn't change them.
>>38850916>That's pretty damn fake. They didn't even try really. It's an ape or else just outright fake.I know. That was the joke. It's a gorilla.
>>38850806Perfectly creepy.>>38850867>maybe all the monstergirls came here through a similar processI think in this setting only the MC of the story can remember their previous life. Unless OP is really shaking things up.
>>38850956I think she'd still be curious.
>>38850825Well, I -do- want to meet them sneks.Preferably while clinging to frorced-dad
>>38851055>we end up claiming one to be our surrogate mother>we accidentally wingman for dad
>>38851081This is an acceptable outcome.
>>38850601Well that's a massive relief, you won't stand out nearly as much, you might even be able to blend into the background once everyone realizes how bland and boring you are.You're still anxious though, especially with the gate looming over you and blocking the sunset, it's deceptively high for something built out of wood and manual labor. One of the men swears, apparently they shut it early.You subconsciously realize that you've been bundling up the excess of your filthy rag of a sweatshirt and holding it close like a comforter, dropping it so as not to appear like the kid they think you are you take a look around at them men and realize there's an awkward silence coming... you think. Fuck, everything is awkward with you. Steve saunters over while the other men bang on the wood and make shouty noises, then right past you. What an asshole, you thought he was going to say something for a second there."ssssss-ssssso thessssseee-" you grimice, curing this lisp and trying o find a way around it. "w-what about tho-t-them ssssssn- LA- Lamia.... people?"Hands in pockets he replies "oh? Well, they're a family, the local alchemist named Slavia and her two kids Cora and Sirena. Good people" isn't alchemy that bullshit science that caused stupid illiterate people to poison themselves in the dark ages trying to turn lead into gold?Oh no... you get a bad feeling about where this is going, you really hope he isn't going to pawn you off on this snake person. For one all that time you'd waste hissing their names, and secondly you don't want lead poisoning.(cont)
>>38851259Steve's stupid voice echo's across the beautiful orange landscape like a pimple on the queens ass (Op is a britbong) before you notice the accompanying stabbing sounds. He's flirting with a giant spider....you think. You don't understand flirting but that looks a lot like flirting.She ignores him, face beset in an amused smile as she walks along on daggers towards the gate. You suddenly feel really small.>Eddie wtf is wrong with Steve?>So where am I staying tonight?>Just stay stum, you don't want to impose or offend anything.Also>Write in?
You know if we ever get magic, instead of boring old elemental stuff i kinda want kicks snake sorcery,summoning snakes becoming giant snake buffs to eye hypnosis,magic venom the whole nine yards

I hope we get clothes soon
>>38851715You mean besides that jumper we're wearing?
>>38851743>>38851715Does a sweaty sweater count?
>>38851715Sweaty blanket/sweater works well enough for me. Not like we can use pants anyway.
>>38851803Well, maybe clean clothes eventually would be nice.It would also be nice if they weren't WAY oversized for us.
>>38851803How about a frilly dress?
>>38851283You can quite believe what you're seeing, but thankfully the disbelief and the fact that you feel more at ease around Ed (possibly because he thinks you're a little kid) combine to let you question Steve's sanity out loud.Eddie shrugs for some reason "I ask that very question myself every single day katie" oh shit did you say that out loud, holy shit you didn't even stutter. Amazing, you had a completely normal conversation with someone. Feeling like a nerdy kid in kindergarten scared because that rough redneck kid is coming over and you won all the gold stars you sort of shrink awkwardly behind Eddie as the giant arachnid approaches, the melting pot of fear, anxiety and strangely enough accomplishment doing weird and unsettling things to your insides. You have to stop yourself from ducking when she casually glances at you, feeling like a sweaty nerd under the gaze of that hot cheerleader you try to keep it cool. Everything is fine, don't look weird or offend anyone by looking weird.We're all perfectly normal people. But on the inside you're shitting yourself not only out of not so irrational fear but also fear of social stigma, feeling very much like you did that time you got paired with a black guy for an inter-year schooltrip to a museum on black history month. Who's the fuckwit who came up with that idea anyway.Theres a loud locking sound and the gate opens, everyone stays clear while the spider makes her way inside, Steve follows her and without stopping and tells you "Nothing wrong with being a legman kid", he smiles and winks before sauntering off home. You turn white, they both heard you talking about them.Sighing Eddy's palm strikes his forehead "Gods dammit Steve""any-who if you want you can stay at my pla- Katie?" he stops and turns around. You're still stood there catatonic and shaking slightly, sweat dripping down your face. You made another astounding introduction.>Write in? Anything you want to do

>>38851852"You okay there Kat" Eddie is a really nice guy, in fact you'd say he's the first person to actually give a single shit about you besides your family for the first time in years."Kat? hey, you okay" Okay he's getting concerned you should really break off this awkward silence before you start crying again, you really miss your mom, even if she is a stupid bitch."y-yea... I-I'm OK"The man calms down and states plain and rhetorically "Scared of spiders?"You hang your head "........y-yea...."--------An few hours later you're alone lying in a soft bed will a belly full of pork and feeling pretty bittersweet. It's not the bed, despite being the most rickety piece of shit you've ever slept on it feels like the most comfortable bed in all of existence. It's strange but you don't feel the aches and pains everywhere until you really stop and relax, then it all comes rushing over you all at once. But honestly the aching pains feel good in a strange cathartic way, so long as you don't move, you never realized how tired you were and now that you've gotten the chance you've discovered the simple joy of lying around doing absolutely nothing at all. A big change from the usually restless sleep and boredom that haunts your bed times after days of inactivity.
>>38852721Horn bumps are laaaame
>>38852745Face bathed in the orange light of a candle lit lamp you realize that you've taken things for granted, your entire life before all this was great, you just never appreciated what you had. But the small and simple things you got back, a roof over your head, and a bed, you find bring you more joy than anything did before you got thrown into a jungle.You even gained something new, that Eddie guy, you think the two of you have become friends of sorts. He's been nothing but good to you, said if you needed anything to just ask. Everyone here is really poor, he lives in a tiny two room house and he just gave you his own bed despite your best protests. it throws you off, nobody ever cared about you in the slightest before, it's very jarring but... nice. You're pretty sure he just has a soft spot for kids but still.The only person who maybe even came close was your mother and you took her for granted too, at some points you even wished she'd just go die because of the pettiest shit imaginable. Your eyes glisten in the candle light and you realize what a wretched lonely failure of a person you were before all this. Maybe this time you won't fuck it up.-----Morning comes, at least judging from the light coming through the cracks of the paper windows, poor bastard can't even afford glass, you wipe the sleep and other substances from your crusty face. You guess that if you didn't have that outrageous healing factor everything would be in agony right now and you'd be forced to act like a rheumatoid arthritis sufferer.>Get yourself some breakfast.>Curl up in bed until somebody forces you to get breakfast.Also secondly.>Write a mental plan of action (just give OP a list, he's squirrel it away somewhere)>Plans are for casuls. Ponder instead if you'll have to learn how to stealth masturbate or head out into the jungle now that you're living with some dude who thinks you're a toddler.
>>38852766>Curl up in bed until somebody forces you to get breakfast.>Procrastinate meeting the other snake people
>>38852752Yes... being a demonic lamia mage is sooo lame... /sarcasm
>>38852766>As always writing in is always an option. because OP is uncreative and can't think of anything interesting to do besides eat breakfast.
>>38852766>Get yourself some breakfast.We're still recovering from jungleism. Need them nutriments.As for a mental plan of action, shit, I guess find out what exactly people DO around here.Like, are we supposed to do anything? Is it just the flowers around here? Also make a note to maybe visit sneks eventually.
>>38852766>Get yourself some breakfast.>Write a mental plan of action (Get real clothes, try getting a job or leaning a trade. Thank Eddie for being nice to you. Learn how to get rid of that fucking lisp, Try figuring out about the weird fucking world. Also food!
>>38852766>Get yourself some breakfast.>Write a mental plan of action (just give OP a list, he's squirrel it away somewhere)>>We have no skills beyond hunting things in the jungle. Maybe people will give you money for corpses.>>Find more about the world around us. If there are snake-people and spider-people then what else is there? >>Internet. Does. It. Exist?

>>38852766>Write in.You roll out of bed when you suddenly notice something strange... the doors are gone and the windows appear solid... didn't this house seem strangely rickety before? It is at this point a sour smell begins to appear as the walls close in on you. You don't even have time to scream before the house consumes you. >reroll character.
>>38852848THAT IS NOT SMUT HUEHUEHUE. I AM STILL WAITING
>>38852848...okay. Not the best if I'm honest.
>>38852766>Get yourself some breakfast.Try, but do it in the most awkward way possible
>stealth masturbateit's just not the same without internet.Unless snake chan has a crush on someone already?
>>38852875>>38852867>>38852862I'm kind of rushing here and am definitely having a bad day for my already shitty writing, but yes, house vore is the new in.
>>38852766Food is good, also taking a look around the town is probably good, at least figure out how many people there are and how many are monsters. Also did we bathe? If not we should totally do that.
>>38852848I've missed you, welcome back to our edgy little quest about a sad edgy girl.>>38852787>>38852803>>38852807>>38852813>>38852841>>38852878Well I guess people need dem nutrimentsWriting.
>>38852904I never left, I merely fled from all the angry people.
>>38852918And it's good you came back, because now you can GIVE US THE FIVE PAGES OF SMUT YOU PROMISED
>>38852918We were never angry. Only disappointed.Disappointed that you still fail to deliver.I don't know why we ever believed in you.You failure.

>>38852904Be sure to AWKWARDLY get dem nutrients.With a preference towards not chewing.
>>38852992This or dragon path is best. Fume Knight will rue the day he crossed us.
>>38853014Fool, awkward snake is best evolution.
>>38853041I never said we wouldn't be awkward or a loser. We're just going to be Assn awkward lamia mage/dragon loser.
>>38852766You're a little bit stiff when you fall out off bed and collapse onto the floor, which turned out to be a bad idea because being the house of a bachelor it was covered in dirt, and also made of cold concrete, who the fuck can't even afford carpets. Why would they even have concrete in a place like this!?!? Regardless you're up now and feeling a little bit peckish, but before that you take in the sight before you. A dark room dimly illuminated by cracks of light, muffled sounds of the town waking up coming from the shitty paper window, all alone and unseen. You feel right at home, you don't wanna go outside....You decide to briefly procrastinate, you've got 10-15- 45 minuets right? What you need is a plan, normally you hate your life and don't want to think about it, but the total lack of internet related escapism is really doing a number on you. Opening up that long unused vault in your mind you brush away the cobwebs and pull up your blank to-do list.What you need first of all is clothes, your own clothes. You need to visit a tailor and stop looking like an dirty refugee.Secondly, you need to pay Eddie back for his kindness, which honestly you don't think you deserve. Which leads to point three:Get money. You don't have any skills nor talents at all, you could maybe kill shit and sell the corpses but at the same time you really don't want to go back out there into that hell hole. At least not all alone.... You don't quite want to go with people either... shelf that one.Point 4.... nail that lisp, stop making yourself look retarded due to a speech impediment. That's an important one.Point 5: Find out about this crazy world and maybe visit those other snake people at some point... maybe.Point 6, and this is the most important one. Acquire internet.You hear a knock at your door, well technically eddies door considering you've commandeered the poor sods bedroom A mans voice calls out "you up yet katie?""y-yea"--
>>38853284In short order you're awkwardly swallowing delicious slabs of pork trying desperately to not make mouth sounds or chew too loudly while Eddie eats a bowl of cereal. You have a feeling the stress will kill you before the predators do.You've been sitting in silence for a few minuets now after the previous conversation died, curse your poor communication skills, you need to restart the chat before things get too awkward and he gets a figurative bad taste in his mouth because some creepy snake girl is sitting in his living room staring and eating his food and basically being a huge nuisance so he decides to kick her out and you're pretty sure you're just imagining the worst case scenario right now but still. You need a topic and quick:>Ask about dem lamia bitches>So what's this settlement do exactly? Besides make heroin.>Write in?>>38852900Your writing isn't shit, it's topkek. just needs to be longer and more elaborate.
>>38853284Milk ourselves for money, duh. We're a snake after all. We could probably sell it to a local apothecary.
>>38853314>>Ask about dem lamia bitches>>So what's this settlement do exactly? Besides make heroin.Both of these. Do it. I demand it.If I have to settle on one, I guess the lamia one.
>>38853314>"Sssssso uh... Issss there a way I c-could make money..?"
>>38853331Flaw with your plan bro.The local apothecary is a snake.
>>38853314>Ask about dem lamia bitches>So what's this settlement do exactly? Besides make heroin.>Is there an adventurers guild around here?Not that we want to join but if they do we know we're in videogame land and in a coma. A very very heavy coma.
>>38853314>Thank him for letting us stay here.>Ask if there's anything we can do to help out. We don't want to be a burden.
>>38853368Well shit, maybe we're a different type.
>>38853314>Ask about dem lamia bitchesShe also has to find out more about the world she's in.
>>38853314>Ask about the lamia apothecaries, don't swear.>So what's this settlement do exactly? Besides make heroin.
>>38853314>>Ask about dem lamia bitches>>So what's this settlement do exactly? Besides make heroin.>>Write in?Anywhere you know of where I can get some, well, girl clothes?
We already know where to get work.We can join the men in MINING.We've got biceps. We're small and snakelike. Mining time!
>>38853343You can have both if you want.>>38852848Also Mr.HueHuehueYou need to push your boundries, do not be afraid or crippled by insecurity.Get some good old furniture porn up with your house vore, don't be afraid to have the house force feed her vases until her stomach explodes, in gruesomely hilarious detail. We're all anonymous here, except me because I'm a filthy tripfag and you're a disgusting namefag, but even so. try your best.You can do it, I believe in you. You can become a topest of keks writer.
>>38853314>>So what's this settlement do exactly? Besides make heroin.This has too much spaghetti potential to pass up.
>>38853368Someone else? Who else would buy lamia venom?
>>38853447This namefag name is more of a title for people doing this specific form of shitposting death scenes, its been used long before I came along (notable examples include hobo quest and all of its terribleness). I suspect people will use it after I stop using it. So technically I'm just as anonymous as the rest of you.
>>38853465>>38853343>>38853371>>38853417>>38853410So what is this place and who is snake.>>38853367>>38853388Also how do we money.Writing after I take a short break to work out the blood clots in my legs and not die from stroke. Back in 15 minuets, take this time to write spider smut.
>>38853555Milking of venom. Gum pinching over a bottle>>38853555https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaJh15LgcP8
>>38853555>take this time to write spider smut.Swear to god I'm on the cusp of starting the actual smut now.3.2k words in now
>>38853596well, yeah, but this doesn't help us.
>>38853652We gotta make some dosh without having to sell our bodies
>>38853677Like I say- we should go mining with the guys.They can even teach us to sing dorky mining songs.
>>38853700I wonder how much our heat vision would help. We'd be able to avoid bumping into miners, but would we we able to sense the surfaces of the mine? Could we detect a subtle difference in air temperature and wall temperature?
>>38853677There's a thousand things we could do before that's necessary. Clean houses, mine, hunt, process poppies, build shit, cook, etc.
>>38853700Yea but that'd make for a pretty shitty quest.OK back and writing.
>>38853652see >>38849444The venom might be useful for producing drugs which will give mad cash
>>38853764I assume mining will be our day job, to support our night job.being an awkward snek having awkward snek adventures
>>38853725Does she have heat vision and a Jacobson's organ?
I think hunting is a good option - it also gives us the opportunity to get exp.
>>38853839I'd rather that to mining to be frank.
>>38853839>>38853879Why not both? We go hunt grues in the mine.
>>38853839>>38853879Agreed. Plus it still means we can go for HUEG SNEK WITH HUEG SNEK GUTS.
>>38853879Does our MC seem like the miner type?
>>38854347Well... She likes dark places...But the physical activity is at least undesirable when contemplating it ahead of time (even if she might find she enjoys being more active) and it's pretty tedious I imagine.
>>38854347I bet she is.A snake is almost as good at mining as a worm.
>>38853314"ssssss-ssso" Eddie looks at you, you think you might want to die despite his encouraging expression "yea?""uuh-uhh... w-what'ssssss thisssss place do exact-ly?" Besides produce heroin.The man looks at the veiling briefly as in in thought "uuummm, well... How to explain it..." oh god please don't let him explain this in child terms "it's kinda join owned by two businesses-er, two large groups of people who want to make money...do you know what money is?"You nod. of course you fucking do what does he take you for--oh. right."huh, must be the whole genetic memory thing you-anyway, yea. So uh, they own this place and send workers here to mine and grow opium, everyone here works for them, there's a few independent shops but it's mostly people employed under timberheads and silver-show, that's the company names... you following?"You nod, OK fair enough. You've had this problem before where people think you don't get it because of your gormless expression, you make a mental note to nod along more to show you understand. Better confirm something to make sure he believes you."ssssssooo" you wince, need to stop starting sentences that way "I-I guessssssssss timberheadsssss doesssss logging right?" god damn you hate that lisp, but you smile slightly when his face lights up."Yea, yea that's right. hmmm, not much too it really. I'm a miner, we've been mining fire stones recently-" you have a pleasant monologue about bullshit magical stones that spew fire when you run a magical charge through them or some shit. It's complete and utter bullshit, but you believe him entirely.(cont)
>>38854619But soon he finishes and you realize he was the only one talking, even so you've had what counts as an engaging , completely normal conversation about magical gemstones with someone. You give yourself a gold star for that one, might as well keep it going."-" you almost say so but catch yourself at the last moment, that deserves another gold star."W-what about thosssse lam-mia people y-you were talking a-about" he smiles, getting all the fucking gold stars today."OOOOH, You'll like Salvia, I go to her shop occasionally for healing salves and such when there's a cave in-" so long story short she runs an apothecary, they just call it an alchemist. Which is fucking bullshit again. But you're not back to correct anyone. You make sure to keep nodding, god damn so many stickers. She's also got two allegedly adorable daughters who knit... they're tailors in training, which means there must be a place around here for you to get your own clothing... but first money. You need money.You want to ask but wait patiently for Eddie to finish explaining and telling stories, you end up droning out halfway to think about how you can get away with masturbating in this place without being caught, this is how dialogue works right?"u-ummm" you're not quite sure now to ask this.. "sssss-ssssoo...""yea?""...um..- H-how.. I-I mean... y-you've -uh- you've been r-really- r-r-realy nice to me E-Ed" he raises an eyebrow."hey no worries, glad to help" no shit you need to get whatever you were going to say out."I-I uh...h-how c-can-...c-can I repay you?" Perfect, no wait. he's frowning, fuck what's the problem."It's fine, you really don't need to repay me for anything, I'm happy to help" Dis nigga.>No really, how do I dolla?>O-ok then (try to find work anyway)>Disgard the other two options OP has nothing. Write in (please choose this one)
>>38854347We could go wurm
>>38854650>No really, how do I dolla?I eat a lot more than you do. I need to learn.
>>38854650>>O-ok thenbut>No really, how do I dolla?
>Salviakek>>38854650>No really, how do I dolla?
>>38854650>>Disgard the other two options OP has nothing. Write in (please choose this one)Start blushing because we think that he thinks we just offered him sex, then bury our face in our tail.
>>38854650>>No really, how do I dolla?But I WANT to help.
>>38854776Oh god anon, I never even realized the possibility. He might not see it that way but it'd be horrifying from our perspective.
>>38854823I hadn't thought of it either, until that guy brought it up.
>>38854650>O-ok then (try to find work anyway)>>38854776Eddie didn't seem to take it that way either.
>>38854905>>38854823Have never watched anime? This trope comes up a lot.
>>38854776>>38854823You know what to do, Doc.
>>38854955Yea but this isn't /a/. One character thinks he's conversing with a child and the other is pretty much a child. So neither would take it that way.Although Katie is a massive hentai.Anywho I guess it's getting top dolla.>>38854710>>38854747>>38854803Writing.
>>38854650OK, but you could still totally give him money if you earned some through a job... which in and of itself is a daunting prospect. Work is the death of free time yet.... you don't even have the internet here... so why the fuck not you've got literally nothing to lose and you're fucked either way."ssssso" -fuck- "h-how er- h-h-how . I-I mean w-where w-would i get a j-job" You need to work on that stutter, it's gotten so much worse ever since you came to the jungle and vomited an arm onto some dudes breakfast bench."..." he stares "uuuuh, I'm not really sure if they have any kid friendly jobs round-ah, no offense Katie. I'll ask salvia, I'll take you down before I go off" he means off to work right? what time is it anyway."but listen" you flinch back at his tone "sorry sorry, OK look, if you do get a job I don't want you giving me any money ok, it's absolutely no big deal. You already brought us breakfast for the next few weeks remember?" oh yea that field of pig corpses you aquired... comes to think of it...>On second thought I think I'm fine (go find your own work, possibly hunting. God knows how but you'll find a way)>OK sure (Go see Salvia and see if she's got any odd jobs for you)>Write in? Snake venom guy go, but tell us where to sell it because Op doesn't have a fucking clue.

>>38855372>OK sure (Go see Salvia and see if she's got any odd jobs for you)>I'll probably hunt too.>Check for a job board.
>>38855372>OK sure (Go see Salvia and see if she's got any odd jobs for you)Odd jobs are amazing.Hunting is so-so.
>>38855372>Write in? Snake venom guy go, but tell us where to sell it because Op doesn't have a fucking clue.Easy. The venom is hallucinogenic, she just has to sell it to the drug producers
>>38855372Going to vote for hunting since we can get ourselves and our host meat, and possibly sell or trade what we don't want. Who knows, maybe someone around here will actually show us how to skin stuff properly and we can sell the hides of whatever we kill.
>OK sure (Go see Salvia and see if she's got any odd jobs for you)This is infinitely better than hunting
>>38855372 >On second thought I think I'm fine (go find your own work, possibly hunting. God knows how but you'll find a way)
>>38855372>OK sure (Go see Salvia and see if she's got any odd jobs for you)Please, I want her to meet other snaeks

>>38855756I guess we're hunters then.Can we still do odd jobs occasionally?
>>38855372>>OK sure (Go see Salvia and see if she's got any odd jobs for you)
>>38855806NOOOOOO you were to late
>>3885537210 minuets later and a disappointed Eddie you watch as the man walks off work, saying he'd think of something by the time he got back if you want. So now that that's out of the way you begin awkwardly slithering down the street avoiding eye contact and pretty much keeping your head glued to the floor. Seems everybody is doing something, whether that be chopping wood, drying out opium resin, setting up a stall... you've made a terrible mistake. How the hell are you going to pass a job interview....>Walk around into you find some kind of admin place where they deal with stock. Maybe you can work out a deal. (self employed hunter, sell stock)>Go up to that shady looking guy with the stall, he looks middle eastern so you know it'll be fun. (he's a drug dealer, go find him some exotic plant/mushrooms)>Go to the local tavern type place, maybe you'll find something there? (Adventures guild contracts)
>>38856053>Walk around into you find some kind of admin place where they deal with stock. Maybe you can work out a deal. (self employed hunter, sell stock)Once we get better at speaking to people we can try the tavern for adventuring
>>38856053>Walk around into you find some kind of admin place where they deal with stock. Maybe you can work out a deal. (self employed hunter, sell stock)Start with what we're best at. Killing things.
>>38856053>Walk around into you find some kind of admin place where they deal with stock. Maybe you can work out a deal. (self employed hunter, sell stock)We absolutely cannot visit the tavern right now. Seeing an adventurers guild would spiral us into madness. We need to get more stable first.Though I wouldn't mind looking for mushrooms while we are hunting. I mean, you can never be sure you'll get what you are looking for when hunting.
>>38856053>Walk around into you find some kind of admin place where they deal with stock. Maybe you can work out a deal. (self employed hunter, sell stock)While being an adventurer sounds fun, I have a feeling we would fuck up or get macked on by a bard, causing us to lose all the spaghetti and imploding
>>38856053>>Walk around into you find some kind of admin place where they deal with stock. Maybe you can work out a deal. (self employed hunter, sell stock)
>>38856150>>38856129>>38856114>>38856097>>38856161Sounds like a sound consensus.Writing
I hope everything turns out okay
>>38856878Hunting is the most dangerous option.We're going to get stabbed in the kidney again.
And we're still on increased difficulty.
>>38856053After an extremely awkward moment where that shady looking guy at the stall offered you some 'free samples', you end up wondering the... well whatever the fuck you'd call this business venture/ settlement, in search of work. Mostly you end up standing in front of buildings and losing the battle against social anxiety to go inside, by the time you eventually come across it you're pretty down in the dumps. You look up, a tired frown plastered across your face 'SilverShow Stock and Barrel' that's a nice logo. You recall what Eddie told you about the company and how it technically owns 3 quarters of everything here...not even technically.Swallowing and preparing for the worst you hesitantly slither inside. With a shaking arm you gently close the door so it doesn't slam and approach the desk where a balding man with grey hair is sitting writing something in a ledger. You stand there gripping your jumper to sooth your social anxiety, it really doesn't help that the guy hasn't acknowledged you yet."-u-uh um" The man slowly looks up and raises an eyebrow. "Yes? How can I help you today miss......"Oh uh, shit what do you say, you should have thought about what you were going to say before you came in here and you're already tongue tied. You've insta-failed this job interview on the very first hurdle. he's frowning at you, you'd better reply soon.(cont)
>>38856956I believe in our snak
>>38857026"...What can I do for you MISS...?" he kinda empathizes the 'miss' for some reason."a-a-ah w-w-well I-I w-wasssssss l-l-looking for w-work a-a" he actually cuts you off"Very well what skills can provide to Silvershow and co, Miss mystery" Oh, baldy bastard wanted your name."ah-ah-w-well-I-uh--the- I-I can g-get f-food, I-mean h-h-hun-""Oh I suppose you were the cause of that sudden increase in meat rations we recently received correct? I inquired as to whom provide such a bounty and was told 'Katie' was she, might you be here miss?" This fucking cunt knew the entire time."y-yea" You feel really tiny."Very well, if you continue to bring in such hauls we could save much instead of importing all our meat, why we might even reach self proficiency with meat rations" he clasps his hands and stares you right in the eye. Your gaze hits the floor "How about this, I'll buy your stock in order to save on importing costs, I'll need a certain quota per week to keep costs manageable and consistent. I've noticed you don't talk much so just circle whichever seems appropriate."He actually hands you a piece of paper with a bunch of units and prices you don't understand scrawled down, you feel incredibly insulted yet at the same time you actually really appreciate this way of doing this, ticky boxes yay.He'll only buy this much every week, because admin is a jobsworth:>10KG a week, Roughly 4 rabbits. 5 gold/week.>25 KG You'd have to hunt an absolute fuckload of rabbits or bring down something larger 12 gold/week.>50kg Rabbits and small game just won't cut it, find something person sized on a weekly basis or you'll get fucked. 24 gold/week>You know what fuck this guy,what kind of cunt trees his employees like this before day one, drop the paper and leave.

>>38857058>>25 KG You'd have to hunt an absolute fuckload of rabbits or bring down something larger 12 gold/week.One successful hunt a week is a nice, steady pace.
>>38857058>>25 KG You'd have to hunt an absolute fuckload of rabbits or bring down something larger 12 gold/weekAlso wouldn't that be roughly 10 or so rabbits? That's not a fuck load

>>38857058>10KG a week, Roughly 4 rabbits. 5 gold/week.First job, let's not take on too much and start slow. We don't know how much our venom can ruin rabbits.

>>38857177>>38857161>>38857155>>38857102>>38857099Well 25KG it is.>>38857113You realize you have to drag it back as well right?Writing.
>>38857058>50kg Rabbits and small game just won't cut it, find something person sized on a weekly basis or you'll get fucked. 24 gold/weekLike other anons said, a single pig would provide this much.
>>38857058>10KG a week, Roughly 4 rabbits. 5 gold/week.Ask about a possible bonus for larger game if we happen to catch some.
Hunt is nice. That way we don't forsake the gifts given to us by the snake god.Hm, possible future element. See if religion is a heavy thing in this world.
Honestly we probably could do this and have LOTS of time to do other jobs. It is a pretty good deal. Of course it depends on how much 12 gold a week is actually worth. We have no idea what kinda inflation ration we are looking at.
>>38857486No idea.Hopefully we can buy some, like, shirts. Annnnd a second bed?What else do we need, bar internet?
>>38857539A decent weapon would be nice
>>38857570This brings up the question.Besides video games and computer shit... what is there to want in life?>>38857583From WHAT JAPAN, anon?
>>38857058Not really having any clue what you're ready, maybe due to this posh twats hand writing or possibly just because you're illiterate and only understand spoken language, you have no idea, you shakily circle the middle option."splendid, I'll write up a contract of employment" he quickly jots down various things on a prewitten piece of paper, it's kind of amazing how fast he can write things down."Just sign here, here and here. A scribble will do, most 'people' here are illiterate anyway" You'd like to feel insulted but it's actually a huge relief. You sign the paper then he goes off and places it in a file somewhere."Congratulations miss you're now employed under Silver-show and Co, you've got until Sundas to deliver the goods to Silvershow werehouse" shit you have no idea what day that is or what day it currently is."I-i-i uh-""You may leave now miss Kathrine, if you have any question consult the warehousing staff" God dammit that's not even your name. He hands you a piece of paper with what you presume to be names and addresses on. But you can't read, so it's absolutely fucking useless to you.You leave feeling lost and violated, yet strangely enthusiastic that you've actually managed to find work so quickly. Things are looking up.>That's it for tonight thanks for playing.
>>38857539Not much, we're going to be hunting for food and we can do that naked. Literally.Maybe we can buy some silk blankets from the spider-girl as a present for Eddie since he doesn't want money.
>>38857595>>38857583>No Japan.Why even live guize.
>>38857474Hunting means we have to deal with snake-chan and didn't mean we get to learn to be an apothecary or learn magic.
>>38857602Sweet, we have a job.I hope we are allowed to quit later on if we feel like it.Let's go with the miners in the morning to the mines, and hunt around until it's quittin' time and go home with them.It will be a good routine!
>>38857602Thanks for running!Also our genetic memory shafted us.
>>38857616Or an extra bed, since we're sleeping in his.
>>38857659Honestly one good boar will settle our stipend for the week, we can then look for magic lessons and all that crap.
>>38857659hopefully we can still hang out with apothecary stuff.
>>38857719>>38857659It's an open quest, you can still go do that in your down time. You basically have to work one day a week part time. if you really want to you can do ALL the jobs.Lets say 12 gold is roughly equivalent to...well 10 KG of meat or a new half decent dress/clothing. (Which will be a choice next session if you want).
>>38857815Dress is superior.Either that or a long shirt.Which is also known as a dress.We will never be adventurous enough for dress+skirt with midriff
>>38857815Also, judging by the QM so far, this quest can go a myriad of ways including quite possibly bad end/lewd at some point or another.
>>38857815Are bards dicks in this world?I don't want us to lose all our pasta products if we encounter one.
>>38857659I dunno, I kinda like the idea of going physical, being a stealthy hunter while still crushing the crap out of anyone who tries to oppose us.
>>38857941>>38857911Maybe, maybe not.>>38857874Absolutely not, we'd never pull off a mid-drift
>>38858024Yeah, let's not be filthy magical scrubs and git gud
>>38857941>us running into a bardOh jesus we're going to lose it.
>>38858129Being a non human and female we're fucked, maybe even literally
>>38858024You do realize that the contact its most-likely long and we're being massively under-paid, right?We could still go physical with the guild, it's just a difference of blue-collar physical vs. white-collar.
>>38858184And then the eggs come.>>38858069Fucking magic users and their autotracking bullshit
>>38858220hopefully we can quit fairly easily.Or, alternatively, get fired.
>>38858264But anon, that's illegal. You get thrown in jail or banished from the place for doing that. Welcome to how colonies work.>>38858229>magic usersIt's almost like magic is a powerful thing to have. And it's not like we can't have both, snake-chan loves fire.
>>38858264Let's use our womanly charm to get out of it.Surely nothing will come of it.Also captcha was a bowl of spaghetti
>>38858371Well, hopefully we can worm our way out of it.I mean, heck, they might not even give a shit if we quit.
>>38858395Lets talk to Eddie and read that contract first.
>>38858424didn't we already sign it?
>>38858264>>38858395>>38858378>Surely nothing will come of it.Here's hoping anon.
>>38858547Please, OP.Don't trap us into wageslavery.
>>38858567WHAT ELSE DID YOU EXPECT ANON, WHAT ELSE DID YOU EXPECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>38858614Well, time to start 9-5 worker quest.
I-it's not too late to go find a nice snake-lady, is it?
>>38858614We can run into the woods and survive there, make a computer out of wood and all that.
Gotta say I am loving the direction this quest is going. We do need to meet the other Lamia though, and find a fire stone for the fire majiks, and get a nice dress.
>>38858614We are a naga are we not? One of the inhabitants of the jeweled underworld of Patala, bringer of both poison and fertility, and divine protectors of rivers and women?Well hopefully eventually.
>>38858674If you can do it in minecraft you can do it in a jungle, r-right..?
>>38858446Yes. Multiple signatures with reading. Physical route sure sounds fun.
Well, let's try to think of ways to get out of the contract when it's time.We could always buy it out. Near any evil business will accept a pile of wages or valuables for an employee contract.
>>38858778Ah well, it'll be fine.
>>38858780Tens-to-hundreds of thousands of gold or physical force.
>>38858780All we really have to do is steal our contract back. No paying necessary!>>38858827Though it's dumb to think we're tens of thousands of gold worth.
>>38858674>browsing w00d-chan like always>some newfag caterpillar starts shitposting on my thread >saying how much better ferns are to sleep on compared to leaves. >sure is summer in here huh guys? >pls respons guys ;_;
>>38858879Spiders > Snakesfite me
>>38858850Stealing it might work. But we'll need to go Solid Snek for this to work, and soon.
>>38858951we'll know if we need to snek it or not depending on how the talk with our forced dad is on contracts.It wasn't pages long or anything, so there isn't really much room for legal bullshit other than the terms of the deal.
>>38858614Look OP, we just hit the auto-sage! You're popular now.
>>38858996Do we know what condition the meat needs to be in? Does it already need to be butchered and smoked/salted?
>>38859050well, what we brought in was fine.So I think that way is fine.Maybe washed if we want to go above and beyond.
>>38859001Amazing. I'ma go get drunk to celebrate then pass out in bed.>>38859050I guess just dump a wild animal at the butchers and sign some forums.
I hope OP remembers to default our difficulty eventually or we are going to become as powerfull as Lyra by just hunting boars in the forest, no dungeons, no grand adventure, just boars.
>>38858220Oh no I wasn't talking about the contract.I meant becoming something like the Predator.
Thankfully, on the difficulty we are on the contract won't be that grimdark.>>38859185There's diminishing returns, aren't there?
>>38859215We still have the social and mental competence of Tomoko despite the scales and fangs
>>38859185Well you realize that boars are easy to medium. So even on challenging you're only looking at like 4 to 10 XP depending on whether they're big or not.Regular adults are classed as high easy and get murdered pretty easily with constriction. So it'll take a bloody long time and I'll probably include epic adventure before that happens. I-i Hope.-Any-who I also drew up some constriction table because the entire thing seemed really up in the air and I wanted the constrictor traits to have some kind of actual weight:Constrict Table:Minor constrictor body = +10Major constrictor body = +30Target weakened with venom = +5 (but only for the initial grapple)Target CRIPPLED with venom = +20 (but only for the initial grapple)(Common sense rules apply, you can't crush an easy turtle, you can't constrict a rabbit if you can't catch it ect)>Mundane = insta-kill, might get messy.>Easy = insta-kill>Medium: = 1d100 vs a 30>Challenging: 1d100 vs a 60>Threatening: 1d100 vs a 80>Deadly: 1d100 vs a 90 or just not possible.
>>38859306Major constrictor a MUST, dat delicious +30
>>38859306Wouldn't getting boars be too profitable? Then again, we are slow as fuck
>>38859306Could you post all the possible upgrades that we can get with Katie?
>>38859306Also, in my head-cannon, which i guess is actually cannon apparently, wild boars are pretty wimpy e.g pic related on average.Giant wild boars might become a challenge, fuckhuge mutant wild boars threatening. But that's a trophy kill. You wouldn't be able to drag it back, especially not with all those broken bones.
>>38859405don't tie him down like that, he's still coming up with more.
>>38859405Sure:Possible tier 1 passive traits:>Horn nubs. (unknown)>Sharper claws (grapple)>Spaded tail tip (you have a spear shaped tail tip now)>Thicker scales. (you gain thicker scales on your shoulders, forearms and tail)>heightened senses (see better, hear better)Teir 2: >Chameleon skin (is lost with thicker scales)>Armoured scales (requires thicker skin, your scales harden and thicken further into what could be considered light armour, and where there wasn't before you gain the thicker scales trait instead of soft baby flesh, especially on the shoulders)>Hypnotizing gaze (Requires HSP, your gaze can influence people or to a greater degree animals, but only in the suggestive sense)>Back fin and aqueous tail (Requires time spent in water and warm blooded trait, Can swim faster than ever. Can, not will.)>Wicked claws (your claws take on knife-like properties, becoming longer, stronger and blacker)>Acidic blood/spit (your blood becomes weakly acidic,makes treating wounds harder but certainly discourages predators from latching on doesn't affect other traits).>Blade tail (requires spaded tail, your spade tail lengthens itself becoming harder and sharper, forming into a formidable natural weapon)>Greater constrictor body (Requires the lesser, the muscles in your tail bulk up and strengthen considerably allowing you to crush the life out of larger prey)>Greater horns (requires horn nubs, your horns grow and lengthen into a much more majestic shape than before, stronger magical power)>deadly venom: (Your venom can become a potent blood clotting agent, If administered to necks it can very quickly induce strokes, often with hilarious results. Also comes with the ability to switch types of venom to sedative ect)Special Attacks: >Venom spit (requires sharper fangs, you gain a natural projectile weapon)>Hallucinogenic venom, your venom is like PCP pixed with LSD. (requires >>38859447Anon is also correct. Feel free to make suggestions.
>>38859476Also I apologize. Because i completely forgot about heat vision. I've been meaning to write that in but never got around to it.Maybe next time you'll think you're having a stroke while in the jungle and brand new colors start popping up everywhere.
Why don't we just stay home and clean the place?
>>38859620well, we'll have a lot of time in the week to do that.
>>38859620Because we as strong independent snek that don't need no human
>>38859656We totally do though.We should try cooking for him.
>>38859476Maybe some sort of heightened reflexes passive that could give a small bonus to dodge/hit? Or some sort of ambush trait that adds a flat bonus to sneak attack damage?
>>38859476Will you add in stuff from mythology as traits?The life draining of the lamia, the the flight of the coatl, the treasures of the nagas, the healing of the snakes of Greek esoterica?
>>38859675I'd love to see that with a naked apron snek...Also, goddamn, OP, figure out suptg already, why don't you?
>>38859979I support apron snake.But why are we naked?Because there was nothing other than the sweater?
>>38860050>>38859979also what's with the suptg, are there problems?
>>38860069Naw, I just was trying to tease OP by submitting this to suptg for him, like thread 6. You got it up ahead of me though, so good job.
>>38859979What is it with /tg/ and the whole ladies only wearing an apron kink?
>>38860050Because that's what those Chinese mango cartoons always do!
>>38860069>>38860197mai nigas. Thank you anons.
>>38860509So, mind if I ask when the next thread might be?
>>38859476Can the longer claws retract into normal ones or would we be required to have them out all the time.Also other suggestions:- Rattler on end of tail (No idea but it sounds badass)- Bigger bust (I kid, Katie wishes she had this. God forbid doing something stupid like making them venom sacks).- Maybe some abilities that let us tap into "Snake chan" more efficiently. Maybe a combo against enemies we're crushing and allow us to do a free attack using bite or claws in addition to crushing.- Multiple arms if anyone wants to go the multiple arm naga route. Would be fun with more claws.- Ability to open our jaw to truly large amounts and swallow big prey without our stomach exploding.
>>38860649Probably 3 days, though maybe tomorrow.
>>38860649See:>>38860821He nailed it.>>38860796Thanks, that 4 arms is definitely going to be an option somewhere.
>>38860951Get a twitter already.
>>38861004he needs post it in the thread info.Also, use it more.https://twitter.com/DrUnorigional
>>38860796Mind if I add a few things onto this?Well, I'm gonna do it anyways cause you can't stop me.- Snake Hair, for extra bites and for talking to ourself when we're lonely.- Flexible Stomach, so we can shove more awkward things down our mouth without it going through us.- Ouroboros Transport, so we can roll around at an increased speed.- Burrowing, for better hiding under dirt.
Oh yea, are magical like abilities allowed for us as well or no?
