Congratulations, you poor motherfucker, you, a normal person on the real planet earth, where SAO is a shitty Anime, have been sucked through time and space into the game... without a NerveGear, which means you have no idea what will happen to you once this death game is over. Currently you're in the main Plaza of the Town of Beginnings, looking up at the Black Iron Palace, there are people everywhere around you, most changing forms on a whim as they go through character creation. Of course, you apparently don't have that small luxury, you're in your normal body: tall, pale skin, brown hair, decidedly average. Apparently you're almost done with the process of Avatar creation, as there's a blue tile floating in front of you asking you to enter your name.Everything feels, smells, sounds, LOOKS the same as it would in the real world, and you get the feeling everything tastes the same as well. Looking around though, you notice something markedly different from the Anime: Advertisements, advertisements fucking everywhere. They're really annoying.You look back down at the blue tile, and think for a bit.>Write in Namekeep in mind though that it has the standard MMO censors, and your chosen name may already be taken.
>>555691xXx_SpUrDoBeNiS_xXxPlease censor-kun let me keep my l337 nickname.
>>555691completely forgot to re-add the part where the name is popularity based when I rewrote part of that.
>>555707gets my vote >>555691hope you aren't flake OP
>>555691>KiritoI want to be the special snowflake. Also, fuck you OP. Running an SAO quest when I've decided to not pick any more quests up is just bullying.
Hey guys. Let's go unarmed. Like just straight up martial arts/kungfu shit. Always wondered what kind of bonuses the grandmaster faggot at the top would gift the only guy doing unarmed combat and surviving.
>>555780i'd be done for it but i'm pretty sure you have to use a "weapon" so let's wait and see
>>555780Can we use gauntlets or some kind of blunt fist weapon?
>>555744I don't intend to be, I'll be running this thing on a schedule: every Sunday from 9:00 to 18:00 Central Time.Also, gonna call it here, one hour later we haven't really had a majority, but >>555707 has the most votes, so we are now...xxXsauskatheuchihaXxxYou type in the name, chuckling to yourself as it goes through. Of course, the humor is sobered by the fact that while you're doing this ironically, there are people out there with worse names that take them seriously. Then you look up, and the advertisements start to piss you off again. There's little time to waste on that though, you know it's about five or so hours until everyone else gets warped to the plaza and shit goes to hell. You should probably get as much done as possible before then, figure out what you can do, try to buy items, and so on. You mime the motion all the players around you are making, opening your menu, and then following the buttons to your inventory, getting a good idea of your equipment:>Short Sword>light blue cloth shirt>dark blue cloth pantsYou have very little, apparently. You close the menu and take a look around, looks like people are moving, a lot of them heading north, where you presume the exit is, but quite a few are moving towards other directions, to what you assume is the markets, filled with NPCs giving out shitty fetch quests and the like.You need to figure out what you're going to do:>Try and get rid of the advertisements>Leave town>Go looking for quests
>>555809>>Try and get rid of the advertisements>Go looking for questsget exp fast because the system is fucked and it's first come first served
>>555816Supporting. But part of me just wants to start by going outside and punching everything that moves.
>>555809>Go looking for quests
>>555832oh yeah and sell that faggy sword a real man uses his fists!
>>555816i vote for thislet's do this shit nigga
if anyone asks about our shitty name we can at least say we named our character after the wine and not some shitty anime character
>>555860"Then what's the whole "theuchiha" part about huh?"
>>555871Obviously the wine bottle had a dark and edgy past.
>>555809Try to get rid of the advertisements Get quest
>>555875Lol, his brother of the 2006 make smashed all the other bottles and now we are on a quest of vengeance to smash him
>>555816You think back, and realize the option to turn off Ads would probably in the menu, so you scan through it, and quickly find a button, you press it, and at first nothing happens, then you look up:To Disable Advertisements, Please Pay the Following Fee:$49.99You sigh, realizing that since this isn't just a VR game for you, you don't have any money to disable this shit, but you try to hit the Accept button anyways. Thankfully it works, and all the shitty advertisements popping up like billboards everywhere vanish.The problem taken care of, you begin your trek through the HUGE crowds towards the markets, looking for quests that don't require going too far out of town, knowing you won't make it very far in the time you have before all hell breaks loose."Hello there, xxXsauskatheuchihaXxx, I need some more meat to feed all these new guests that have been popping up, could you get me... oh say Fifty boar flanks?"AcceptDeclineif the formatting goes wrong I'm sorry
>>555886How far is it to the boars? If not that far I'd say accept and try to get a few more quests in the same area.
>>555896Supporting.>>555883"He spilled the wine of my parents right in front of me. I will have my vengeance!"
>>555886Accept. And sell our shortsword while we're at it. A real man uses real gains, namely with his bare hands. Plus hardcore mode usually gives more bonuses.
i got to ask cause i'm sure it'll be brought up. are we going to cuck kirito?
>>555916Ideally we are.We need to out gainz him.If we level up hard enough we might just steal his special snowflake status.
>>555916I HIGHLY recommend not fucking with the plot until at least after the "you're all fucked" speech Kayaba gives>>555896Looking at the map provided by the innkeeper, you realize these are the boars from the first episode, the ones literally just outside of town. Perfect.You accept, and start looking around for another, quickly coming across a blacksmith. Literally across, as it was on the other side of the street from the inn."These boar tusks make great handles for swords, ya know? I would love to have 10 or so"You accept since it's just giving you more reason to kill boars, and keep looking, wading through the crowd until a horrible stench floods your nostrils: it smells a lot like vinegar, but there's some other shit mixed in there that you can't identify. You hunt it down and soon find a Tannery, offering leather equipment and a quest. Marching up to the relatively short, balding NPC you ask about getting some equipment."Well sure laddy, I got some good armor here, though it might be better if I didn' hafta buy my supplies all the way from Tolbana! Say, you look like you're good with this sort of thing, maybe I could get ye some gloves if you help me get some better quality skins, just hunt down ten or so wolves on the outskirts of town, that'd be enough, if I do say so m'self. What'da say?"AcceptDecline
>>555937OP you know where going to derail this shit quick.The question is just how fast we do.>AcceptThey're just on the outskirts of town.
>>555937>Acceptit's the first area i'm sure we aren't going to get ganked by wolves, but let's do the others first and get a level or three.
>>555937Accept. And sell that damn shortsword.
>>555941>>555950>>555951>>555952>>555956"Ya will! Thanks lad, just bring em back here when you're done!" You smile and nod, moving on your way. Ahead, you spot the gate out, surprising you. You've covered a lot of ground for just three fucking noob quests.LeaveKeep looking for more questssearch the town for something else (Write In)
>>555962>Search for a place to sell our sword.Apparently our fiwill wil be our weapon.
>>555962Leave Don't want to piss anyone off when shit hits the fan and there's no quest
>>555962>search the town for something else (Write In)find a place to sell the sword and see if we can purchases so knuckle dusters or something
>>555962>sell sword>litteraly run to the boars, there is no time. Never stop running.>must>power>level
>>555966>FiwillI don't even know how that happened*Fist willWe punch everything.
>>555962About what time is it, judging by the sun?Kayaba doesn't pull his shit 'til dusk, and boars looked to be pretty easy kills, so as long as the drop rate is favorable we've got time.
>>555966>>555968>>555969You slap your forehead, realizing you already know exactly where to sell your sword for some extra cash, it's shit anyways, you'e not going to need it. You also become painfully aware of your time running down, and make a mad dash back to the blacksmith."Hm? oh, you wanna get rid of this thing? alright then, here, 100 Cor should suffice" He drops a silver coin into your hand, and you realize you've got a starting balance that just got doubled when you check your inventory:Cor: 200You thank him and take your leave, It's noon now, you don't have as much time as you'd like, you have to get these quest turned in either right before or right after Kayaba gives his speech, which means you need to kill at least 50 boars and 10 wolves with your bare hands before dusk. Maybe you shouldn't have taken the boar asses quest, but oh well.You burst out of the main gates, leaving the shadows of the city behind, the wind sweeps through your hair, and you see a few people out hunting the many, MANY animals that are roaming, looks like you got here in time, you can't even count the number of boars, only that there's way, way more of them than the players, and there's plenty of wolves farther out as well, perfect.Hunt BoarsHunt Wolves
>>556004Go out for the wolvesThen come back in later for the boars since they're closer to the town.

Inb4 no one tested unarmed damage and it's OP
>>556151>>556158First dice of the game. This is just the beginning.
>>556111alright, I'll let the trips take lead over the 5, but from now on it's first roll counts.Your fist SMASHES into it's jaw as it leaps, glowing a deep blue as it shatters the wolf with one punch!Combat OverLoot Obtained:>Wolf Pelt x2>Wolf Fangs x4You grin, your victory exhilarating you, you feel like a million dollars... and then it crashes down, knowing that just like in the real world, you've only got one life and it could end as easily as this wolf's.Shaking your head to get rid of those shitty thoughts, you look up from your loot and takes stock of what remains... and then you see them.Klein and Kirito, they're HERE, RIGHT NOW, KILLING BOARSIgnore them, keep hunting wolvesIgnore them, hunt your own boarsapproach the pair
>>556167>approach the pairKirito may be a shit, but Klein came off as being pretty bro tier in what of the series I forced myself through.
>>556167First roll only? Man its going to be difficult>Ignore them, keep hunting wolves
>>556167>Only first rollThat's just waiting for our salty tears.>Approach hem.
>>556167So OP is it confirmed now that unarmed damage is untested and beautifully OP?(At least for us.)
>>556167>approach the pairi don't hate a thing about kirito other than him being a gary stu. he's an okay guy to be friends with just never bring your waifu around him!
>>556178Supporting. We have to power game. Keep running. Don't stop, those fags are wasting time. >>>BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD.
>>556167>>556178>>556204This. They're grinding boars. We're grinding wolves. We are already on the way to being better than Kirito at this point.
>Hunt wolvesIf we don't finish hunting these wolves we won't get the quest rewards, and if we don't get the quest rewards we won't even be able to start hunting bears before this metaphysical world goes to shit. I refuse to abandon our quest. Also we're poor, we need money.
wait a second. We had to buy adblock for 49.95. We're not playing an SAO quest, we're playing a SAO Abridged quest
>>556167>>556203changing my vote to Ignore them, keep hunting wolves
You guys voted while I was typin, so we're doing both!You march up to them, fully intending to speak to Kirito, but something stops you, their conversation is... different. Kirito is monologuing about a mythril pebble or some shit and Klein is just giving up on life as they slaughter boars one by one.It hits you like a ton of bricksThis isn't the normal world of Sword Art OnlineThis is something altogether different.This is...Sword Art Online: AbridgedClearly, things are going to be different around here, you'll have to rethink your plan.You decide to go back to hunting wolves, and there's a pair just ahead you can smack the shit out of.Enter CombatWait for them to attack first
>>556238>Enter CombatRule of Fist fighting: Punch firstAnd OP, get some name will ya

Rolled 17 (1d20)>>556254>Wolf 1Kill it all.
>>556264Unarmed combat is best combat
>>556254Taunt both of them by getting close and then dashing back. As they leap stick our fingers into their noses midair and step on both of their tails. Use that leverage to snap both of their pitiful necks by draping the rest of our arms around their heads, then twisting and crushing.
>All this rollsDid i just blocked all the good rolls?
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>556285Also rolling
>>556285question is...can we write in?
>>556254OP did we just get all our good rolls blocked?
i assume each target got a roll each. so wolf 1 is 11 and wolf 2 is 18 yes?
>>556299pretty sure it's best of three
Rolled 15 (1d20)Single target combat will be first roll, but in a real fight...>>556261Your fist launches towards the first wolf, knocking it back slightly! Wolf 1 HP: 25/30>>556262You turn, pivoting your whole body into your next strike, meat smashing into fur and bone!Wolf 2 HP: 5/30It attacks back, snapping at your arm! It's teeth catch, gouging into it!

>>556311is not..what is with 11 today?
>>556314Blleeeegh. We need to invest in some hardcore dodging. Obviously we are not boosting stats. That's just too casual.
>>556314I always used best of 3 in my quests, as i feel first roll is too swingy.But i can understand that you may be worried about not getting enough rolls or something idk.
Fuck, I forgot to delete the part about it gouging, that was meant to be the "it actually hit" messagefirst roll only*In a fight with more than one target, it's one roll per target per round.>>556314It's teeth catch on your arm, gouging thick red lines into it that scream in pain! Your vision goes red with pain and rage as you take stock of the fight!HP: 420/450>>556316You attempt to snap it's neck, but all you manage to do is dislodge it from your arm!>Wolf 1>Wolf 2As before, pick a target and roll 1d20!

It appears to be a full helmet, an exact replica of the head of the grey wolves you just fought, only big enough to fit over your head, and hollowed out. The smooth bone is surprisingly comfortable over your head as you put it on, and the jaw moves with your own as you try it out. You don't have a mirror to see what you look like, but you imagine it's pretty fucking badass. Looks like you also got all the wolf pelts you need for the quest too, wonderful!There's still plenty of boars around, but your fight took up valuable time, you've got maybe four hours until duskKirito is still talking about a fucking pig-slaying pebble with Klein.Go back to townHunt boarsTalk to Kirito and Klein

>>556650>Solo the bossNo meat shields and cannon fodder?
>>556654No. The boss scales with player count.
>>556661Fine we'll just suplex it I guess.And not get murdered by a nodachi like a noob.
>>556667That's not a fuckin nodachi. That's a cleaved. And if we had high agi, we could jump into it and avoid it altogether.

No, we keep an eye out on Kirito. Remember him saying something about how the start areas will be all used up by the noob soon. Hence, why he lives and all the limited good quests first. We stalk him when leaves and get the goodies too. Also, are you guys fucking serious? Strength? We used our fists for godsake. We cant parry, deflect, or block like players with bladed weapons, weapons in general, or shields. And we cant we heavy armor because it would hinder out fighting ability. ALL into agility. We hit pressure points quick. We disarm fast. We execute techniques nimble and quick. We flip heavier opponents quick. We evade weapon strikes quick because we can't deflect, party, or block. But what we can do is evade and redirect attacks. That requires skill and physical deftness. That's agility, boys. Fuck strength, we cant hit hard if we die. Plus, thumb of RPG builds. ALL stat points into one stat. Other stats are increased by item bonuses, equipment bonuses, and buffs.Get rekt noobs.
>>556703Supporting. We should make large cords with teeth and bones on them for decoration and hardcore stealth, as well as wolf pelt bandages to wrap our points of contact ie fists, elbows and shins in. Or something along those lines
>>556716Punching as main skill, but also putting some points in kicks and grapples.I imagine grapple will be specially useful in duels and when some PK wants to start some shit with us.
>>556687You go outand youPUNCHBOARASSESLoot Obtained:>52 Boar Flanks>22 Boar TusksRARE DROP!>B Class Cooking Ingredient: Heart of the BoarLEVEL UP!>3 Attribute Points Obtained!>Max HP Increased to 500!Current STR: 4Current AGI: 1Once More, assign points!
>>556722There you go. That's another set of reasons why strength is overrated. Godamn opm wannabes.
>>556722We can pick people up and smash them into walls and the ground.
>>556722>Hence, why he liveswhy he leaves
>>556733all into AGI
>>556733>1 STR and 2 AGIWe need some agi for some fancy dodge and counterattack moves.
>>556733>Agility all.>>556734Doesn't damage scale with strength?I don't think we'll kill level 70s with 10 strength.Balance is needed.
>>556716I say even split kickbox/grapple. Grapple to overwhelm in 1v1 or when we have higher numbers, kickboxing for dps>>556733All into agility
>>556733Balanced buildAll on DEX
>>556733>Dump it all into StrengthNO BRAKES ON THE STRENGTH TRAIN
>>556733ALL TO AGILITY!
>>556733All agility no shit.Also I'm not a fan of squaring up just punching shit. Tackles and grapples are great but if we are going striking class then kungfu/kempo with a side of taichi is the way to play the game
Guys, I know y'all wanna be ninjas or something, but instead of that let's spec into crushing heads and wielding fuckers to hit other fuckers with
>>556736And you assume everyone is slow enough to catch and throw around like a sack of meat? Kirito is OP because hes fucking fast. We will outmanuever him.
>>556761We need to DODGE, that means agility.
>>556733All on STR
>>556763Let's just grab him when we sticks his sword in us and then give him a big 'ol hug.>>556733Hey, before the plaza, do we have time to log out, install add-ons, go on saohead, look at good builds for us to do?
>>556733All into AGI.
>>556761Yeah let's just hit really hard and not be able to hit anything, we would have to rely on destroying our environment as the only viable option against a high agi biuld
For those bitching about balance. I said we make up for strength with equipment stats and buffs.>ALL Ability from now onIf we're going the technique route, which is the inly way we'll survive, we go all agility
>>556772The best form of dodging is to deflect.
>>556786See? Someone gets it.
>>556786Basically OPM but without the speedA walking tank
>>556810Not moving.Against bosses.You want to die Anon?
This really isn't hard to comprehend guys.Agility is the only viable carry for a solo build besides magic, and since we don't have magic and strength is weaker for a plethora of reasons, why the he'll go for a solo strength carry.
>>556810Tank with what though? We have no shield or massive plate. I don't like our odds of just out dpsing the entire game.
>>556823>This really isn't hard to comprehendYou are being way too nice and overestimating people Anon.
>>556745>>556748>>556749>>556756>>556758>>556766>>556784jesus, that's a lot of people going for AGI>>556781The log out button is gone from the very start, and also, we don't have a NerveGear, we're from the real world, imported through pure bullshit with our meta-knowledge into the gameNew STR: 4New AGI: 4All quests are available to turn in!You smile as your balanced build flashes before you. Censored blood drips from your mask, a side effect of wearing it: Free lifesteal, every 10 HP you deal as damage gets you 1 HP back as health, which allowed you to go relatively unscathed through the boars. Granted, it took THREE AND A HALF HOURS to collect all the boar asses you needed, but they were done, and you had time to head back to town and turn in those quests before Kayaba announced that shit is fucked.By now, Kirito is almost done with his monologue about the magic stone and you can see both him and Klein standing on the hill.Talk to Kirito and KleinRun back to town and turn in quests
>>556820We just need to know where not to be.>>556823>pretending to know what the fuck kinda mechanics would be good in SAO
>>556824Not yet, soon we will purchase two shield and have big fist weapons
>>556824Yeah. also if we are the first to max out agility the game might give us an exclusive special skill.
>>556802I love how you anons just want to smash dirt that our enemies stand on a minute ago while players like Kirito and Asuna deal 10 fucking sword slashes a fucking second and do a shitload of damage.
>>556820Just describing similarities,good friend.>>556824Specifically Tank-destroyer. You know...the one with high penetration but low armor
>>556832>imported through pure bullshit with our meta-knowledge into the gameSo does our meta-knowledge include useful info like specs and builds so we don't have to argue the merits of HUUUGGGEE and GOTTA GO FAST every level up?
>>556832>Run back to town and turn in questsI wanted to be the Kirito not interact with him. Unless I can fuck him, in which case lets go.
>>556832>Run back to town and turn in questsIt should be easy to stalk Kirito for his beater secrets after the big meeting
>>556832Op, we go to town turn the quests in and buy two shields and become that guy who uses two shields as weapons
>>556839>dps on a tankit's like you forget that potions and DT exist
>>556833There's only two stats. In traditional meta as well as in the show agility in itself is just better discounting skills.Let's turn in those quests and gtfo
>>556833So we just hide in the beginning village for years and max out our cooking ability?>Run back to town and turn in quests.We need gear yo!
>>556832Let's go back to town and turn in the quests.
>>556832>Run back to town and turn in quests
>>556843I would like to think after a few levels it will be pretty clearly defined which direction we're going and whichever side loses will go along with it.
>>556824There's something called dodge tanking. We're not going to carry a fucking shield.And we are not wearing chain or PLATE ARMOR.Christ, do any of you game?
>>556832Wait...We got transferred from real life?Can we not have the meta knowledge?It can change a lot of path
>>556874What do we do when we fuck up a roll and get hit?I don't like being squishy.
>>556874Exactly, we're going to have two shields!Those small ones used mainly to deflect or bash.
>>556832>We've gotten plenty of boar asses for the townies... now let's get some for us!
Op you absolutely have to confirm the meta here or else it's just going to be unpleasant arguments.
>>556884Sorta like this
>>556874You want our punches to be feather-light when instead we could be
>>556910woops, forgot this part
>>556884CoughYou mean plated gauntlets? Because there's no fucking way we can execute effective grappling techniques or misdirection with two fucking shields strapped to our arms. Might I also remind you that aren't the lightest dainty props?And one the subject of getting hit. It's a compromise. Again, do any of you play fucking games? You cant good if you spread so thin. We can learn techniques that can redirect most of the force or mitigate blows. The trade is that we kill them before they kill us. No one fucking cares that you dont like being squishy. Anons chose the fighter route fighters are dpss. Other than that, we wear good leather armor and get gud.
>>556921Can we call the other players out for kinkshaming our lifestyle when they see us fucking mobs?
just balance our points. put all the points into one stat then next time put them in the other
>>556910No. Fuck dude agility covers hit chance as well! We could be hitting vitals for as much damage as a base high strength punch. Plus dodging and speed
>>556935>Leaving your hits up to chance
>>556843you watched the Anime and the Abridged up to episode 10, which means that you have no clue about mechanics because they're not really mentioned. you really just know the plot up to a point and can derail it easily.Also, reminder that Kirito's thing was carrying swords that required ABSURD STR to carry, but he also powerleveled and put plenty of points into AGI, so I'm gonna recommend a balanced build>>556847>>556848>>556850>>556854>>556858>>556866Your increased AGI has made you holyshitballs fast in comparison to before. You zoom into town at top speed and only stop long enough to turn in quests, cutting off dialogue as fast as you can.First up is the Innkeeper, who takes most of your boar asses and gives you 100 Cor and a bit of EXP.Then the Blacksmith, who takes your Boar Tusks and gives you the same as the Inkeeper: 100 Cor and some EXPThen the Tanner, who gives you 100 Cor, enough EXP to level AGAIN, and Leather Gauntlets, which add a whopping ONE to your Armor Points, though they'll keep your hands warm and are really, really comfy even when you're hitting shit. Current Inventory>Light Blue Cloth Shirt>Dark Blue Cloth Leggings>Wolf Mask>Leather Gauntlets>22 Wolf Fangs>12 Boar Flanks>Heart of the Boar>500 CorLEVEL UP!>3 Attribute Points Gained>Max HP Increased to 525!>New Skill slots Unlocked!Huh, that's new, you forgot about the Skill System.Well, you'll worry about that later, for now, you have Attribute Points to consider!Current STR: 4Current AGI: 4dear god I wish there was a keybind for bolding like there is for spoilering
>>556910Anon, are you illiterate?I've said that we get our strength up with equipment bonuses and buffs. Or do you want us to be smacked across the room every enemy turn? If you wanted to go stre gth, you anons shouldve chose ti gone heavy melee instewad of fighter.
>>556930Wow bro just dial it back a notch. This is supposed to be a fun thing not a play by the meta we are the best of the best and we fit the meta. I've always thought it would be fun to wield two small shields and play an offensive defensive style, parry a strike and hook with the other shield.It's about fun and you aren't having any of it.
>>556950all into STR
>>556935>>556958Equipment bonuses are for pansies that weigh themselves down with constraints.
>>556950>2STG>1AGI Don't you tell us how to minmax our build in a system that was never talked about. We'll slap on fucking spiked armor and roll to victory if you do.
>>556958This. And considering what op said I recommend leveling strength to agi on a 1 to two ratio. So 2 into agility and 1 into strength. That's the build boys.
>>5569502 STR 1 AGII gotta say that the character development in this quest so far has been killer
>>556950So kirito was just an absurdly high level with a balanced build>2 agility one strengthAlso OP there is stat boosting gear right?
>>556950ALL TO AGI AGAIN!GET THE BEST ARMOR WE CAN BUY!
>>556975That's because you fools keep interacting with NPCs instead of real people
>>5569502 STR 1 AGI
>>556983 Waifu Super racists Meh, Girl when?
>>556969Can we actually invent the "Wheel of Spiky Death" fighting style?
>>556975I'll back this.
>>556980No. Godamnit everything is established in a way that 2 agility and 1 strength is objecivly the best choice for each level up.
>>556988I'd definitely back that shit if we can go for it.
>>5569501 STR and 2 AGi
>>556983Is having relations with Mob NPCs allowed?
>>556950>2 STR 1 AGIYou know what we should do? Use our magic payment information to buy as much micro transaction crap as possible before everything goes bananas. We can corner the black market on pay2win and become some kind of punch hard mob boss.
>>556988>Become the Bonewheel.AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA
1 STR AND 2 AGI
>>556999Holy shit that's actually a really good idea. Let's buy all of the shit on the micro market
>>556999Good idea changing to this
>>556999Fucking Genius, do this.
>>557005I still stand by the 2 agility 1 strength biuld.
>>556950>>2 agility one strength
>>556999Sure, why not?
>>556999holy shit you´re right.A game with lifes involved will make EVERYONE look for ways to cheat, so everyone will want microtransactions- but we´ll have everything. So we´ll overcharge for it. A /lot/.
>>557028Personally I'd rather keep all of the crafting and misc sht and just sell everything that conflicts with our biuld.
>>557003>Bonewheel styleWe could go PEACEFUL God damn you hybrid dragon lady
>>556960Im smiling right now. Nerd rages make me smile. Im actually having fun. But yeah, sorry man. >I concede to 2 agi: 1 str
>>557050Years of just cooking would be boring
So are we a girl, a boy, or a dog?
>>557086A wolf actually
>>557086We are xxXdogsasuketheuchihaXxx
>>557072Moonlight sculptor We're. And he's OP.
>>557109Oh shit that reminds me, we have to make our name private.
>>556999i am down for this
>>557086Are we a cat?
>>557128Are we a kid or a squid?
>>557128We're in the wrong mmo animu for that.
>>557151That looks absolutely ridiculous.
>>556950You decide to continue with the balanced build:Current STR: 5Current AGI: 6Then you have a stroke of genius! If you can just summon money for mircrotransaction shit...You open the menu, and then your smile falls.The store only has two things on sale: The AdBlocker DLC and a "real money to virtual money" system: 1 cent for 100 Cor, with prices going up to $100 for 1 MegaCor. You decide to just pump money into that, saddened there's no real P2W content, just a P2NotGrindSoHard system.For all the things the game does wrong, it did THIS right, and you can't really abuse it as much as you wanted, but now you're fucking rich, with practically infinite money.And then you feel the tingling sensation and are warped into the plaza. The Big Man, Kayaba, is floating before you right fucking now, giving his speech, which you gloss over for the most part... until one thing at the end that's markedly different from even the Abridged Speech:"Oh, Two more things, first off, you all have the Adblocker for free now, and I've revoked all the microtransaction payments -marketing really screwed that one up!-, and I turned off the censorship filter. Have fun!~"Well shit, there goes your infinite cash, fuck you Kayaba, fuck you. You sigh, looking down at your "new" body, which isn't different at all, except now you have genitals, apparently, because there's no filter anymore. Neat. Now you can confirm you're a guy instead of a Ken Doll or a Cat like that one dude over there.With That taken care of, you look around, wondering what to do.Hunt down KiritoGo questango shopping with your grand total of 500 fucking CorCall Kayaba a faggot for taking away your money
>>557166I know, right? It's awesome.
>Call Kayaba a faggot for taking away your money

>>557173>Strip for cashWe're one of those ShindoL faceless men aren't we?
>>557173How did he steal our gold?
>>557227He has admin access and shit.He can do basically anything.
>>557235Except get laid, apparently, considering his plots.
>>557235But how can he track micro-transactions? That's like a community thing isn't it?
>>557173Ask NPCs around town about information concerning rare/powerful/otherwise special monsters
>>557173>Well shit, there goes your infinite cash,I knew this would happen, and yet i still mourn for the loss of Don Sauskatheuchiha, the man who never was.Obligatory vote for>Call Kayaba a faggot for taking away your money
>>557244He can stop all sensory data and movement for other players.His admin crap knows no bounds.
>>557173Why do we have to be a guy? Can't we just have a chargen since we have no physical form? Or at least glitches everywhere?>>557256But other people are still getting that money, not him? They have to oversee that.
>>557265If I had to bet.He's not refunding transactions.Just draining our cor in game.Which makes him an even bigger fag.
Well, at least we'll have infinity yenners when we beat the game>>557279>He's not refunding transactions.fuck off
Can we have a vote to just tell Kayaba the build we want for the character at the end of each thread so we don't have to waste time on arguing over STR or AGI each vote?
>>557289Yep. 2 agility and 1 strength is where I will always stand. Because that's what I think is the best bang for buck all things considered
>>557289Or beginning of each thread, just keep it out of the boring grinding parts so we don't have to waste time when we could have grinding done in one post instead of 7

>>557379You're right. I'm changing my vote from this>557363to this:What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
>>557396>Leave the town and start PKing scrubs on the outskirtshttps://youtu.be/kRWnSPgOzHc
>>557396WASTED TIME. FUCK.We need to hardcore parkour the fuck out of here right now, accept all of the quests in the market place and get back to being swole as fuck.
>>557396>Hunt down KiritoFucker knows all the good spots
>>557396>Hunt down kiritoHe should be talking to Klein right now iirc.
>>557413Why not start our own murder guild and take laughing coffin's schtick before they can?
>>557396Go QuestingGOT TO GET GUD
>>557385Excellent point. I support PKing if they are douche-lords
>>557396Let's do some fucking quests before they get snatched up by the other players.
>>557396>Go Questingonly the strong survive
>>557396Leave the town and start PKing scrubs on the outskirtsLet's PK PKers.
Guys, once we have that rezzing hat, we should stalk Kirito for a bit, then wait until he's wounded, kill him for the XP, then put the hat on him so he'll get better and we'll get XP.
>>557422>mfw we cause Kirito´s PTSDin GGO or whatever.>mfw >>557438shit, can we become the pk´ers boogeyman? Vigilante justice!
>>557427Actually about that, I hated the show but one of the dreams about it I had once was just being ambushed by 20 laughing coffin members and then just wiping the floor with them. Praying that happens to us so we can be that much more badass.
I don't see why y'all want to go down the boring route when we could spice things up with murderWe could name our assassin's guild Crescent Fang or something
>>557438>Let's PK PKers.THISThey should have good loot, grant good xp, and I won't have to feel bad for butchering innocent 12 year oldsWe can be the hero SAO needs
>>557450Meh I'm all up for murder if it comes down to it. But slaughtering poor scrubs needs a little justification. Namely then being dicks. But if people are dying from monsters I say let's just steal their kills and leave them to rot.
Why not a PKK guild?
Thinking about it, you narrow your options down, Kirito is probably already long gone, Asuna is struggling to figure out the menu, Klein is looking for his crew, Don Fluffles is going to take time to build his Mafia, Laughing Coffin won't exist until their leader is convinced he isn't crazy BECAUSE of Fluffles... all the major players are scattered in the wind, leaving you not much to do with them. Most of the minor players are probably among the noobs in the plaza, which leaves you with...Kill PeopleKill MonstersDo Quests
>>557472We going Haseo route?
>>557482>Do QuestsAnd if we run into PKers while questing >Kill People
>>557482Do QuestsBuild Guild
>>557457But we need to solo bosses as well. Because then we will be the ultimate badass amongst badasses.
>>557482>Do questsRun full speed around town grabbing every quest we can.
>Do QuestsWe must get all the exp
>>557482Do QuestsCollect meatbag-i mean friends then quests/Kil monsters
>>557482Do QuestsKill PKers
>>557482>Do QuestsParty with the most competent meatshields/players
>>557482>Kill PeoplePK prospective PKers. It's clearly the best plan
>>557482Do quests, and if we run into monsters or pkrs then splice them too.
>>557492If bosses really do scale with player count I'm up for that.I also want to mention rare monsters again, because if I remember the anime right it's first come first serve and we only get one shot
>>557482>Do QuestsJust play the game and try not to die for now.
quests are boring, let's go say at least one word to somebody by the end of the first thread to see if anyone can even hear us given we don't have a larynx
>>557510That's a really good point. We should accept every quest and then just use that as a backlog when we have down time. Priority should be monster hunting with pk redemption on the side.
>>557537that's a pretty good idea
Additionally I was thinking we do a piccolo like training method. We should get a full body sandbag harness from the vendors and wear that at all times to improve stats. Then when shit goes down we take it of and absolutely rape everything.
>>557561I don't think the QM's gonna allow that
>>557561I... don't think thats a way to grind XP mate.
>>557569Blegh. So sad. But hey doesn't hurt to ask. Can we do it am?
You nod to yourself as you decide to do some quests, just getting your level up will be incredibly important. You can preemptively put people out of their misery later. You avoid people as much as you can, but then, out of the blue, one jumps in front of you!"Heya wolf-dude, you look like ya know where yer goin! Wanna take me with? I'm uh, kinda new to this sort of thing."This short girl with strawberry blond hair and...cat ears grins up at you, and you can plainly see her player name:IncogNegroAsk about her nameAsk about her earsAccept her offerDecline her offer and move on
>>557579>Skin her hide for leatherworking
>>557579>Ask about her ears>And doubtThis might be a trap
>>557579>PET THE MOTHER FUCKING EARS
>>557579Incog-Black? What is this, a shitty rouge skillmokey?Sure, take her along. Couldn´t hurt.
>>557579>when the QM forgets the fucking picture
>>557579>Ask about her nameokay this first cause i got to know
>>557574No it's not xp it's stat improvement.>>557579Sorry I'm busy.Proceed to run and kill monsters
>>557582When Jackass says GOOD LUCKKKK, everybody is turned into there real self sense you had to calibrate the VR gear.
>>557579>Punch her in the gut and take her cat ears for yourself
>>557579>IncogNegroI LIKE IT, SHE'S ON THE TEAM.
>>557579Ask about her nameAcceptMore meatbags
>>557579>Ask about her name>Ask about her ears.>Take her along
>>557579FIND THE TAIL
>>557603I'm down, but is she a thug?
>>557596As in lure us to a group of thieves or PKs, not an anime trap.
please don't let all our "friends" have animal gimicks
>>557579>Ask about her ears
>>557579Take her with usNever let her out of our sight
>>557613Fair point but its early to being Pking ain't it?
WE DON'T HAVE TIME JUST KILLLEVELNO WAIFUS
>>557611Considering all the player killing we very well could get up to, her being a thug could end up being a boon if she were one.
>>557631ANON WE NEED WAIFUS TO COOK FOR STAT BONUSES FOR OUR MURDERING.
>>557647MUST BE SOLOMUST BE EDGYMUST BE KOOL
>>557652ANON NO.WINE ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE EDGY.
>>557647>>557652>>557656I just wanna go kill people with a group of buddies and no one else is receptive to that
>>557579"Uhh... what's with the ears? I thought we all got turned into our real bodies?"She gasps, and reaches up, like she wasn't even aware the ears were there."Oh my gosh I forgot to take the headband off! I was at a party last night and when I woke up I must have left them on and then the NerveGear thought they were real! Holy shit I'm the only person in the game who has animal ears!...unless that head of yours isn't a mask like I thought?"Tell her about the Wolf MaskAsk about her nameBring her alongEnd the Conversation
>>557656WHO'S DRINKING WINE?WE DRINK OUR OWN PISS.FUCK COOKING
>>557662Why are we going around killing them?For the lels is just begging for someone to set a trap on us.Or get assassinated.And being a red player sounds like a hassle.
>>557664>Ask about her namename reason now
>>557664>Tell her about the Wolf Mask>Bring her along.Considering our name i think it´s better not to ask
>>557664Fuck it, let's ask about the name.
>>557664Tell her about the Wolf MaskAsk about her nameBring her along
>>557664But seriously we don't have time for this shit if we ever dream of being a solo badass now above all times is not the time to be flirting with a ho. Give her our contact info and let's get the fuck out.
>>557664>Bring her along>End the ConversationWe are in a hurry lady
>>557664>Show her the horrors under our maskI sincerely hope the QM doesn't make the MC another Bland McBoring
>>557664>Tell her about the Wolf Mask>Ask about her name>Bring her alongLet's try not get to attached to her for now
>>557664>Well... At least you aren't a real cat like Don Fluffles is.
>>557664>Bring her along.I'm disinterested in solo play.
>>557664>Tell her about the mask>Bring her along"This is a mask, my melanin-enriched individual. Now we must make haste, for experience beckons and shitters await in the shadows."
>>557664>"Hey Kitty, would you like to making fuck?"
Guess sauska the lone wolf is a no go
>>557664>Bring her alongAnd see if we can string her along about us actually having a wolf head.
>>557714Lone wolves die.
>>557664Bring her alongEnd the Conversation>>557662WINE ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE EDGY. STOP THAT. WE NEED CUTE BAIT.
>>557714We need someone to love us then we treat her like shit.Sasuke would be proud
>>557664"Well, at least you're actually human, unlike that other cat I saw walking around, a-anyways, what's with your name? How'd you get that through the filters?"She scratches her head, the part about another cat going clear over her head. "My name? What's so special about it? Why would there be a filter on it?"...She has no fucking clue. Moving on for now"Alright, whatever, I'll be happy to take you with, but don't expect me to explain my head, it's... a long story" The lie comes out smoothly, and you grin under the mask, thankfully she can't see it hidden behind the muzzle. "Yay!... uh, where are we goin?"The Marketplace (where you found the first three questsThe Black PalaceLeave Town
>>557740>The Black Palacetime to go kill that boss!
>>557740>The black palaceIncognegro might do well here.
>>557740The Black PalaceNO CHILL, ONLY EDGE
>>557740>The Black PalaceOh shit are we ready for this? Only one way to find outFOR SCIENCE
>>557748Yyyyyup. Along the way there are bound to be monsters to kill.
isn´t the black palace pretty high level though?...>Out of town!
>>557760Let's do this
Does... does no one remember/know what the Black Palace actually is?
>>557740OP do stats give us modifiers on our rolls?What effect does stats have on our rolls and actions?
>>557769It's the hue palace in the first town. there's a dungeon and prison under it, but the dungeon probably isn't open.
>>557769a boss fight, right?>>557766https://youtu.be/uigHV-gOHxs
>>557769Doesn't the dungeon open up as more floors are beat? So it shouldn't be open that much anyway.
>>557777Oooooooh shit. Let's go there.
>>557784It's just a government building (for now at least)
>>557740>Leave TownThe first town and its leveling zones are going to get flooded with players. Better skip town and head to the second one, now tht Kirito cleared the path it should be easy.
Wait shouldn't we find an inn and rest?Night should fall eventually.
>>557769they are fucking insane
>>557791It won't be flooded quite yet. Most players are probably gonna take a day or so to come to terms with the death game thing.
>>557773Yes, they do, the more STR you have, the more damage you'll do on successful hits, the more AGI you have, the more easily you can land hits and avoid them. You can also gain more acrobatic skills with AGI, and break/lift/use heaver and harder things with more STR>>557777and the quads get it, no, the dungeon is not open, AFAIK in canon it opened up more and more of itself as the upper floors were cleared, so it's completely closed right now.The upper floors of the palace are a place to find NPCs and look at a very special thing.
>>557796Rest is for the weak.But yeah I remember that level 90 boss motherfucker let's leave town and kill tons of shit.
>>557800The monolith of deaths? Or is it a monolith with the names of the first people to clear bosses?
>>557760Okay changing my vote to leave town then, we can rest when we've stolen more of the quests
>>557800WE MUST PUNCH THE SPECIAL THING OR STEAL IT.
>>557814Then shouldn't actually get some quest from the palace before leaving town?>The Black Palace
>>557740>The Black Palace
"Big black building in the middle of town, you see it?" you point it out, it's the tallest building in the city, and even Incog should be able to see it from her angle."Oh, that place? what's so special about it?"There's something I need to see there, and I'm hoping to find some NPCs and pick up some quests.""NPCs?"Oh dear sweet baby jesus mother of FUCK.Ditch herTake her with to the Black Palace
>>557859>Take her with to the Black Palace>Give her a rundown on basic MMO lingo on the walk
>>557859>Take her with to the Black PalaceCOME SHITTY WAIFU. WE WILL REPLACE YOU WHEN WE FIND A BETTER ONE.
>>557869Sure why not I'm half dead can't think clearly but this seems okay
>>557859No. Not happening. Leave her to die. Let's just go to the palace of people want to go there. Even though there is absolutely nothing.
>>557859>oh dear sweet baby jesus mother of FUCKlolAlso >take her with to the Black Palace
>>557859Take her with to the Black Palace
>>557859>Negro Policia of Compton, try to keep up
>>557859>She´s a total noobWELP>take her to the black palace"Non-player characters kid, not actually real people. I´ll explain shit when we aren´t running out of time"
>>557859>Take her>Make sure she can open her menu.
>>557859>Take her with to the Black Palace>Give her a run down. Also harp on and on about how shit the SAO mmo stat and skill system is. I mean 2 stats? And any unequiped skill gets set to lvl1? Ridiculous!
You stupid niggers need pussy so bad you willingly accept a massive liability for the chance of it?My brain is bursting.
>>557859>It's a dumb catgirl episode>Take her with you to the Black PalaceWell she did say she was new to this. We'll educate her in-between questing and shit. Probably before questing actually, she probably doesn't know what happens when your HP hits 0.
>>557903WE NEED BAIT.
>>557903Hey, we need someone to watch our back in our murder guild
>>557903Chances are she´ll get attached to us and take a hit that would´ve killed us or shit.
>>557903Hey it worked for kirito! He got a racist stalker with control issues as a girl- oh god what are we doing?
>>557859>"You ever play mario before? NPCs are sorta like the Toads and Toadettes of SOWWW"
>>557920We need bait that doesn't waist our time you fuckers are bipolar and delusional. What is the name of the game? Winning it or getting distracted over massive bulshit. Mc is now confirmed kirito 2.0
>>5579462.0 ALREADY BETTER THEN NUMBER 1
>>5579492.0 a shit, I wanna murder for money
>>557960And when everybody is dead and your the last one?
>>557946Version 2.0 finer edge edition
>>557869This. Then later dich her as she ruins our chance to solo the escalating first floor boss.
>>557982BECOME A GOD? VERY WELL ANON. LET US ASCEND.
>>557964Take on the world.Cause that's what badasses do.Hey listen I'm not saying we have to go solo, but if we are gonna pair up, we have to pair up with someone that doesn't waste time and can actually contribute This stupid bitch can't. So let's leave her for dead. Then get some actually competent fuckwit later down the line.
>>557995Let's at least give her a chance. If she really is useless then she'll die to some boars.
>>557995I like her look, tho. We could form a guild called the "The Fierce and the Furriest"
>>557995i'm not saying keep her, I'm saying use her. If she dones't want to be useful or can't help in any real fashion. We sell her to some creeps for coin.
If this was Sao original I would say let's see where this goes, but it's Sao abridged so once she fucks up or we can't take her stupidity I say we ditch her
>>557995Also reminder that taking on the first few floors by our self while everyone else is a noob increases the chances of us getting competent partners later down the line due to natural selection. Additionally soloing the bosses in the beginning will be easier than group fights for the same reason.
>>557995She might not have any idea how to play a game but she doesn't need to really. She's our minion. She just has to follow our lead and be semi-capable of whatever her role in combat is.In fact, what is her role in combat? That will weigh heavy on how I feel about her
>>558021The first boss is literally easier solo. Teach the kitty the ropes then ditch her.
Things are getting real edgy
>>558031Hopefully a spy. Someone stealthy that can be as useful as well as expendable.
I'm just gonna sit here and laugh my ass off at you guys for a minute>>557859You sigh."Keep up and I'll explain, come on, we don't have a lot of time"She's faster than you, and keeps an easy pace, practically WALKING while you jog.."So, NPCs, what are they?""Non-Player Characters, all the shopkeepers and shit you see walking around that aren't really players""OOOOOH, that makes way more sense than I was expecting""There's a lot of other terms you should probably know if you want to stay alive. Do you know what DPS is?""...that's some kinky shit, dude"You smack your forehead at high speeds, and realize you've already reached your destination. Pushing open the doors, you reveal that special thing you've seen, the thing that may have answers as to your existence in this game: The Monument of Life.Approach the Monument of LifeIgnore it and look for NPCs to get quests fromLeave
>>558038Additionally she won't get in our way.
>>558053Approach the monument of life. Let's see what here if there's anything.
I mean it´s a quest about a shitty anime.Of course it attracts edgelords.
>>558053Approach the Monument
>>558053>BREAK THE MONUMENT OF LIFE, IMPALE IncogNegro ON IThttps://youtu.be/TlR3AGHTKNQ
>>558053>Approach the Monument of Life>Ignore it and look for NPCs to get quests from
>>558053>Approach the Monument of Life>It's Damage per second, Negro.
>>558077Nah, I think it's attracting boring people who were fans of the anime.
>>558053You make your way to the Monument and quickly start searching for your name.Shockingly, you find it, which means the Cardinal system does in fact understand you're a player, which is probably good news. Amazingly, you can also find 100 people already fucking dead on the list.100, on day fucking one, when you're able to take out a pack of wolves with your fucking FISTS, these idiots can't figure out how to use a SWORD to kill things. You turn to Incog, an explination about DPS on your lips, but before you can say anything, she asks another question."What do the crossed out names mean?"Tell her the truthLie
>>558159Tell her the truth.The sooner she finds out how shit works, the better.
>>558159>Tell her the truth
>>558159They're dead Jim
>>558159>Grip her shoulders>Howl sadly>Leave
>>558121>>>Fans of the anime, guys have no clue what the hell the not so secret dungeon in the first floor is.Think again.
>>558174this is great, anon
>>558159They are dead mate. Deal whit it
>>558159>Tell the truth>100 people die day oneAt that point it's just natural selection.
>>558184Too be fair, 80 was probelly kids who didn't get the fuck off the game when called.
>>558184Absolutely. Or it's just parents taking off the helmet. Either or
>>558194The nervegears had some battery i think? that´s how they got people to the hospitals.
>>558159"They are dead. Dead for real, want to stay safe? Stay in town and max out your cooking skill, food without the cooking skill tastes like cardboard. So cooks will be on demand soon."
>>558200It did, but forcefully removing the helmet caused it to fry your brain.
>>558200it's literally stated that taking the helmet off kills the man, unplugging doesn't, but most parents probably took the helmet off.>>558163>>558166>>558170>>558183>>558203"They're already dead" You say with as somber a voice as you can muster."Wha-how? Is it seriously that dangerous out there?""No""Then how the flippity FUCK DID SHE DIE!?" She points at one name in particular, tears forming in the corner of her eyes.You read the name.Anonimiss."Who was she?""M-my sister, she said she was gonna show me how to play an MMO, I was supposed to m-meet her a-and then everyone was in the plaza so I was waiting and then..."She breaks down in your arms.Comfort HerWrite In
>>558206Wonder how many parents killed their kids.
>>558203I like this plan actually. Maybe we can turn her into our crafter
>>558212>Comfort Her>Howl softly I'm a smartass but i know how it feels to be told your brother is dead. >>558213I think the game was 16+? so quite a fucking lot.
>>558212wait waitthe person who was going to teach her... died before her?
>>558212>Comfort her>>558225Probably thought the battle system was easy then got wrecked by wolves.
>>558225It'll end up being a Laughing Coffin member that done it.
>>558212>Comfort Her>Write InIt's not her fault. Kayaba has set up a sick trap, no one could have prepared for this. It doesn't mean she was bad. She would want you to stay strongSomething to that general effect
>>558212>comfort her>its also possible that your parent took the nerve gear off without knowing the consequences, or she was randomly chosen by Kataba to show he means business
>>558217"Because the creator of this game is a sick fuck. Wanna stay safe? Don't leave town, max out cooking since cooks will be on demand as food not made by players tastes like cardboard."
>>558212>Maybe someone killed her or something for XP. Wanna track them down and kill them?
>>558225Since it's not going to play into the story how she died, I'll just explain it real quick: Parents took the older sister's headset off first since she's normally responsible about this shit, then they didn't take it off the younger sister because OH SHIT THAT KILLS THEM>>558212You don't really know how to respond to this shit, so you just rest your head on hers and rub her back up and down as your mouth runs on autopilot."I'm guessing you live with your parents, It's entirely possible they took your sister's NerveGear off and that got her killed, and you're alive because of that. I hope it's not the case, but even if it is, don't blame your parents once we get out of this mess, because it's Kayaba's fault. He put us in this game, and he's the reason everyone on this wall died, one way or another. I want you to remember that, Incog. This wasn't your fault, it wasn't your parent's, it was Kayaba's. And if you want to get revenge, you stick with me, got it?"She nods against your chest, wiping her tears and pulling away, her voice suddenly lifeless and empty."Got it."Keep TalkingLook for questsLeave the building
>>558212>>558244>>558341"I just had an awful thought, what if your parents are about to remove your nerve gear as well?"
>>558341Keep TalkingLook for quests
>>558341>Look for quests.
>>558341>Keep Talking>Look for questsWe don't want a suicidal with us
>>558341Ask her about herself while we look for some more quests.
>>558341Alright I'm not so fussed about this chick. She seems pretty ok. >let's go now, there's nothing else here of worth for us. If you have questions ask and I'll answer to the best of my abilityGive her our contact info and proceed to parkour our way into the market to pick up every quest. Then let's go monster hunting. The rare ones don't stick around.
>>558341>>558351Supporting my own write-in!
>>558341>Look for quests>keep talking and explaining MMOs
>>558341>Now, I see you're wearing the starting clothes, you can sell these for 2 Cor a piece, why don't we set you up with a full set of chainmail bikini top and bottom?
>>558341"Alright, let's go, I know you probably want to grieve but we don't have the time, from my understanding of this game it's first come, first serve for quests and monsters, so the faster we are the better our chances of beating this game, you're faster than me, so I assume you put more points into AGI, would I be correct?"She nods."Y-Yeah, Noni told me to run around and do favors for people, I got a lot of money for it and made it to level three, so I put all my points into AGI, I like being fast"Full AGI build, not the worst this early, maybe even better than an average person, depending on how you outfit her, but you can think of that later. For now, you need to get that sweet sweet EXP and loot. You lead her out, and think about where you can find the NPCs with quests.The MarketplaceGo to HorunkaGo to Tolbana
>>558427Hey, guy who says we have meta-knowledge, make with the exposition on what the hell horunka and tolbana are.
>>558427>Horunka>Get Anneal Blade
>>558444Horunka is a smaller town where you can get the quest to get a sweet sword: specifically the sweet sword Kirito uses when fighting the first floor boss, the Anneal Blade. Tolbana is the bigger town that's closest to the Labyrinth that leads to level 2, where Kirito and Asuna first meet.
>>558427>Go to Horunka>PWN some mobs on the way.
>>558427>Go to Horunka
>>558427>The Marketplacebuy chainmail bikini
>>558427>>558463Time to cuck Kirito out of his gear.
We gonna bang asuna?
>>558427Go to Horunka
I appear to be out of time to run this thing, I'll run again on Tuesday, though that will be a shorter session for the road to the actual town and some SoL along the way.I hope you guys have enjoyed this, I certainly have.
>>558484no, but we can bang the first dungeon boss
>>558495Thanks for running
>>558495Thanks for running, it loos very promising.
>>558495Thanks for running Kayaba.
I wonder how much people are gonna pay for the anal srod
>>558495alright, take care!
>>558495Be Safe mate.
>>558495Question before you go: can we upgrade our wolfhead and what materials would we need?
Feel free to discuss shit, plenty of thread left.>>558558Yes, you can, you'll have to find out what you can upgrade it with later, most people don't realize you can upgrade your gear once you get something you like, and instead switch to whatever they think they need, but since ALL conceivable skills are in the game, upgrading gear is among them.
>>558588About some shit I said earlier, can we make or buy a sandbag body harness to train our attributes passively while it's on? Is this allowed?
Hey, I've got my eye on y'all!
>>558602nah, attributes, from my understanding (it's really not explained well, the mechanics are more a crutch for the story than an actual fleshed out game) only increase when leveling up or wearing gear that specifically increases it, and that bonus is lost when the gear is gone.
>>558588Can we take skills from old gear and slap them on to a new one, like we find +10 damage boost boots, can we slap them to new ones that give a speed boost?
>>558660alright this is the last question I'm gonna answer, my brain needs rest after 9 hours of running. You can, but it's going to take some serious crafting skills to do it.
>>558674Thanks a lot QM. See you tuesday.
>>558648Isn't Charisma an attribute?
>>558674Good night man thanks for answering.I'm still in support for the weight harness. Even if it doesn't support stat growth it still supports skill growth.
>>558689Or it might potentially support stat growth idk op's decision if that ends up being the case.
Scared about the longevity as SAO:A isnt all that far in
>>558710okay I have to respond to thisSAO:A's story takes place over two years, and at the time of the 10th episode it has been at least that, the same in normal canon. Right after the Honeymoon is when shit gets real and the game ends.By the time we catch up to that, if we allow the plot to go at it's normal pace instead of punching it in the gut and breaking it's spine in half, I can only assume the series will be in ALO.
>>558729i expected another shitty isekai bs quest thats boring as fuck, but ive enjoyed it so far, you did good m8also, get a twitter.
>>558739@KayabaQMtheregod I hate social media, forced me to follow random shit in order to join, thankfully I can unfollow shit at will.
>>558833has the thread been archived?
>>558833I know that feel
>>558833I only got one because of the fucking /tg/ mod. So I know how many tears to shed over losses.
>>558833i agree with the fuck social media thing, but I dont think theres a good alternative to twitter for qms to announce when they run
>>558845It hashttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/555691/and that should be the last of the shit I have to do for this thing until Tuesday.
