A fantasy RPG
After killing the orc Ghorlorz, you take some time to rest. Despite his injuries, Ulric awakens.Ulric: "He got me good, I'm sorry I wasn't any help">For destroying your enemies you gain 1000 XP>You now have 6025>You are now level 4>Looting the corpse you pick up:Iron HalberdIron Heavy AxeIron War HammerOrc Crossbowcaltrops (5)...>"Time to collect the reward, lets head back to Appleby">"Are you alright? Do you need help walking?">"You get injured way too often, stop fighting so recklessly">"We learned some disturbing information from this creature. When we return to town we must discuss the orc threat">level up>write in
>>2156016>Good work team. We've been kicking serious butt all day long, let's head back to Appleby and collect our reward. >"Are you alright? Do you need help walking?">"We learned some disturbing information from this creature. When we return to town we must discuss the orc threat"Can we get a comparison of our current hammer and the iron warhammer? And how good would we be with a halberd? And are orcs commonly found using crossbows?
>>2156049The hammers are identical. The halberd uses the stabbing skill, like a stronger version of a spear. You don't really know how many crossbows the Aflor orcs have.
>Good work team. We've been kicking serious butt all day long, let's head back to Appleby and collect our reward. >"Are you alright? Do you need help walking?"Ulric: "I'm fine, i'll walk it off">"We learned some disturbing information from this creature. When we return to town we must discuss the orc threat"Ulric: "Yeah we should really do something to help Clarcton"You return to Appleby, but as you reach the proximity 2 men and a boy rush over to you."Christof! I caught you! So you think you can just steal Alina huh?"Alina: "Dad!? I joined these adventurers on my own!""I don't care. Once I'm done teaching this pipsqueak a lesson, your mother and I are having a *stern* conversation with you!"He starts flailing his morning star and advancing towards you.>"Actually sir. Christof is my evil twin, I'm Christophe and have rescued your daughter from him" (bluff 18%)>"Back off old man, you're no match for all of us" (intimidate 15%)>"...You brought a kid to fight?">"Can't we talk about this?">"I'm not stealing her, we're just on a really long date">"Salaman! Obscuring mist!">level up>write in
>>2156263>Level up discreetly>"I'm not stealing her, we're just on a really long date">Isn't your daughter old enough to make her own life decisions? >"...You brought a kid to fight?"
>>2156343You are now level 4You have 20 unspent skill pointsNote: After a skill reaches 100 it costs 2 skill points to advance it by 1>"I'm not stealing her, we're just on a really long date""When I said you can try and date her I didn't think she'd actually say yes!"Alina: "But uh this isn't *actually* a date">"Isn't your daughter old enough to make her own life decisions?""Obviously not if she makes decisions like joining a dingus like you on some stupid quest. Adventuring is far too dangerous for her"Alina: "I'm not a little girl any more. You're acting like a lunatic!"Salaman: "Why do peasants always try and stop us from taking their daughters as apprentices?">"...You brought a kid to fight?"Kid: "I'm not a kid, I'm THIRTEEN! Give us back Ali!"The guy with the spear engages Ulric who at the moment is just defending himself but not retaliating.Father swings his flail at you but misses.Salaman casts Summon Creature II, summoning a Salamite.Salaman addresses his summoned minion "Take out, err I mean hold off the kid." The Salamite moves to engage the child.
>>2156434Spend 20 on persuadeAttempt to defuse the situation
>>2156434Alternatively, spend nothing on persuade and 20 into crushing.
>>2156698>>2156718I think i'll wait longer for a tie breaking vote or for someone to change their mind. Todays session is going super slow anyway.
>>2156698Lets do this
>>2156698Persuade sounds good. If I learned something from fallout, is that being good with words can get you very far and even get bonuses otherwise unavailable for pure power builds.
You increase your persuade skill to 59Alina: "Dad, Uncle Alden, Ricket! Please stop. I don't want you to get hurt.""Hush Alina, you don't know what's best for yourself">"Be reasonable, what do you hope to accomplish here? Even if you beat us and take Alina back home she will just leave again. You can't just keep her prisoner. She's an adult and can make her own decisions"Roll a 69 or lower to persuade. First roll counts
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>2156876Rollin' low!
>>2156882I caught Seeker Quest live and was actually useful!
>>2156841>not just powergaming so hard you can crush your way through every single encounter I'm ok with persuasion though, we will need to talk sometimes. >>2156882>>2156892good shit boi, welcome to seeker quest
>>2156876Also damn, those 20 points got us from an 18% bluff to a 69% persuade
>>2156434>"Take out, err I mean hold off the kid.">>2156876MINI SALAMITE>>2156882Nice rollFucking hell I missed the vote. Pumping all 20 points into persuasion is a bit short sighted.
>>2156940Salamites are supposed to be Goblin/human child sized. When they're summoned with SM2 anyway.
>>2156951Oh i am dumb
>>2156882"But it's not safe! She didn't even say she was leaving">"Why don't you talk to her instead""Ali, please just come home. Your mother and I have been worried sick. We're not mad (at you) we just want you home"Alina: "I'm sorry I just left without saying anything. But I knew you wouldn't let me leave. The truth is I hate being a basket girl in Appleby, I want to go out on adventures like you did when you were my age. That's why when Christof told me you gave him permission to take me, I took the opportunity to leave. I don't think I'd ever get another chance""Alina... I didn't realize you felt this way. I was just trying to protect you, being an adventurer can be so dangerous. Imagine if you ran into a throng of bandits! If you really want to go, I wont stop you."Alina: "Thanks dad, that means a lot to me""As for you 'Christof', if I find out anything bad happens to my daughter. I'm hunting you down. And no hand holding!"Alina: "Dad!">"OK">"Don't worry sir, I wont let anything happen to her">"I'm glad you've come to your senses">"No promises on that last one">write in
>>2156876I know that kids sword is just in motion but it looks like it's on fire also sweet I caught this live
>>2157007>"I'm glad you've come to your senses"Neither agree nor disagree
>>2157007>>"I'm glad you've come to your senses">"Don't worry sir, I wont let anything happen to her"...as we leave, turn back with the smuggest fucking anime face and >"No promises on that last one"
>>2157007>>"Don't worry sir, I wont let anything happen to her"Swear it in the name of your title as abjurer extraordinaire. Besides, what's the worst thing that could happen? You sure bet that Alina's dad didn't marry his wife after going on adventures together
>>2157007Alina's dad can actually whoop ass, holy shit look at that gear
>>2157007>>"Don't worry sir, I wont let anything happen to her"
What is our consensus on Alina anyway? Are we gonna hold that hand or are we saving our virginity for someone else?
>>2157087Ehn, I'll wait on it.
>>2157087Do we plan to woo one of the king's princesses back home? otherwise we should wait for a better opportunity to hold Alina's hand
>>2157119Alina is literally the first girl we've met. Come on guys, we can do better.Just look at the size of our hammer
>>2157125>>2157119I'm just wondering other people's thoughts. There is no rush of course.
>>2157129I wonder just how ambitious Christof truly is, what is our plan after returning home
>>2157022>>2157043>>2157020>"Don't worry sir, I wont let anything happen to her. No promises on that last one though""Boy. I will BURY you" He leaves taking his kin with him.Alina: "Thanks for talking him out of it. My dad can be really stubborn"Ulric: "So does this mean Alina will stay with us when we go to Appleby now?">"Let's go to the tavern, we should discuss the orcs">Hunter's lodge>Temple>Magic Emporium>Weapon Store>General store>write in
>>2157154>>"Let's go to the tavern, we should discuss the orcs"
>>2157154>cash in all bounties >magic emporium >"Let's go to the tavern, we should discuss the orcs"That little kid is a serial killer in the making. Hopefully it runs in the family.
>>2157154>>2157170This is a good plan.Maybe check out the next tier of bounties while we're at it.Glad Salaman is back on the ground.We could totally see up his robes.>>2157087>What is our consensus on Alina anyway?Great girl, valued companion.>Are we gonna hold that hand or are we saving our virginity for someone else?Remains to be seen. She seems neither eager nor unreceptive, but definitely values us a companion.I think we should let things develop naturally.
You cash in the orc bounty."Here ya go 350 Talons. Congrats on taking out that orc. Oh by the way. That giant slime you found has been assessed and is available for a 100 Talon bounty.">You now have 643 TalonsThen you visit the Magic Emporium."Greetings. Behold my new selection">Shield (Abjuration I) (10 Talons)>Mage Armour (Conjuration I) (10 Talons)>Identify (Divination I) (10 Talons)>Charm Person (Enhantment I) (10 Talons)>Shocking Grasp (Evocation I) (10 Talons)>Silent Image (Illusion I) (10 Talons)>Cause Fear (Necromancy I) (10 Talons)>Message (Transmutation I) (10 Talons)>Scroll of Teleportation (375 Talons)>Tavern>write in
>>2157316>>Shield (Abjuration I) (10 Talons)>Shocking Grasp (Evocation I) (10 Talons)>Scroll of Teleportation (375 Talons)We gotta get some evocation down the line

>>2157316Might we take "Message" as it's the only spell we have a shot of casting?What does it do? Long distance communication?Does Salaman already have Mage Armor?If not, we should have him get it.
>>2157369You ask Salaman and he says he already has Mage Armour."Message allows you and a target to whisper to each other from up to 100 feet away. It's almost impossible to eavesdrop on it"
>>2157369Supporting Message, it's only 10 talons. Could be time to buy two helmets for Christof and Ulric, but we could do that after we figure our game plan for the orcs out. How does the scroll of teleportation work?
>>2157379>"Message allows you and a target to whisper to each other from up to 100 feet away. It's almost impossible to eavesdrop on it"Okay, get that.Even if it fails, it's a possible tool in our bag.Could we use it, if successful, to whisper in an unfriendly's ear to distract them, or something?Or would it be an obvious magic spell to them?Some magic is more obvious than others.
>>2157398Yes it can be used on unfriendly targets. The spell transmits sound. It's not obvious the sound is being transmitted by a spell.
>>2157391>Could be time to buy two helmets for Christof and Ulric, but we could do that after we figure our game plan for the orcs out.Supporting this right back.Might want to drop a talon to pick up some paint to give our helmets some style too, so we can tell each other apart, plus it's cool.
>>2157406>Yes it can be used on unfriendly targets. The spell transmits sound. It's not obvious the sound is being transmitted by a spell.Good... good...
You purchase:Shocking GraspMessageScroll of Teleportation>You have 238 Talons RemainingYou head of to the tavern for a group meeting. You find an empty table and order some beers.Ulric: "Cheers to our successful adventuring party"Alina: "So what's first on the agenda?">"We should talk about the orcs in Clarcton">"We can discuss business later, let's just chat for now">"I'd like to discuss how we're developing our adventuring and combat skills">"Are you all satisfied with my leadership? Any requests or complaints you'd like to make?">write in
>>2157448>"We can discuss business later, let's just chat for now"then after everyone gets shitfaced>"Are you all satisfied with my leadership? Any requests or complaints you'd like to make?"
>>2157453supporting this, and then do >"We should talk about the orcs in Clarcton"
>>2157453>>2157481>>2157498>"We can discuss business later, let's just chat for now"...Several drinks later...Ulric: "Woah, Alina. You can, you can really drink huh?"Alina: "Of COURSE I can drink, my dads a brewer, I could probably quaff faster than you">"You're going pretty slowly there Salaman"Salaman: "Salaman the sober drinks in moderation">"So, Are you all satisfied with my leadership? Any requests or complaints you'd like to make?"Ulric: "Yeah, Christof. I have, heh heh, I have a request. I request another round!"Alina: "I'm pretty happy with what i've got. Nice armour, nice bow, some special arrows plus I can just keep using your spellbook. How about you Sally?"Salaman: "It's Salaman. And yes I have requests." Salaman unfolds a crumpled piece of paper, "First of all I want you to stop destroying the tents, I mean. Seriously. Enough is enough. I also want to continue adding conjuration spells to my spell book, especially the Summon Monster series. Also I don't like staying up at night. You have the Alarm spell and I can maintain summons in my sleep why do we need to keep watch at night?. Also when are we going to move onto larger townships? Appleby and Leefside don't sell very powerful spells.">"Uh okay. I'll keep it in mind">"We should talk about the orcs in Clarcton"Ulric: "Yeah? So what are we going to do?">"We need to assemble an army and retake Clarcton">"We need to assasinate the orc leader">"We should go to Clarcton and investigate the situation first hand">"We should wait it out and hope the Arch Duke can handle it before the orcs wipe out another settlement">"The orc leader seems very unusual, maybe I could undergo diplomacy with him">"The orc leader is apparently an avid reader, I want to find out if he knows anything about the Wish Granters">write in
>>2157529>You have the Alarm spell and I can maintain summons in my sleep why do we need to keep watch at nightWE ARE DUMB>"We need to assemble an army and retake Clarcton">"The orc leader is apparently an avid reader, I want to find out if he knows anything about the Wish Granters"I think we should go to a bigger town and get some good gear, notify them of the orc fiasco, and then maybe go back with an army in tow? I don't think we can handle it ourselves.Also, can we see the map again?
>>2157529>"We need to assemble an army and retake Clarcton"Lets go to a bigger town and try to get some help, it doesn't seem like leefside and appleby have enough fighting power to route an orc army
Oh, before we leave Appleby we should buy back our destroyed tents
>>2157529>>2157536>>2157540agreed with this. As to Salaman's requests, we will be buying and destroying more tents.
>>2157540>>2157536>"We need to assemble an army and retake Clarcton"Salaman: "Why is this our responsibility?"Ulric: "How we going to raise an army? That's really hard"Alina: "Oakheart is nearby and about the same size as Clarcton, maybe we could get help there"Salaman: "If it were really necessary Christof could use his teleport scroll to go to the capital: Aramoor">"The paladins are probably already trying to destroy the orcs. They will help us">"We could spring that farm boy necromancer from Appleby's jail and have him raise some undead for us">"The magic shopkeeper and apprentice from Leefside could make us some Vegetable men, they would be excellent arrow fodder">"Maybe some of the monster races like Goblinton are enemies with the orcs?">"Maybe that witch Cassia Moriarty could help us">"The deserters would probably be willing to fight for their home if they think they have a chance">"Maybe there are more orcs like Ghorlorz who don't like the new regime and can be convinced to rebel">"Maybe we should try rushing to find one of the weaker wish granters and use its power to stop the orcs">write in
That's it for now, thanks for playing everyone. I thought it would be a slow session at first but the turn out ended up really good.Possibly because one of you shilled /qtg/Thanks for playing and cya next timeAlso I forgot to link previous episodes at the start of the thread...Previous Episodeshttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=seeker+quest
>>2157580I actually agree with Salaman. I kinda don't want to do this right now? Like, put it on the backburner. We should head to Oakheart.>"The paladins are probably already trying to destroy the orcs. They will help us">>2157583Thanks for running!
>>2157584Yeah we're just adventurers. Handling orc invasions is not our thing, leave it to state officials
>>2157583Ah damn. I completely forgot that this would be running today...Gotta start leaving a note or something to remind myself......> Putting 20 points in PersuasionThis is fine. There are certainly worse stats to pump points into......> Retaking ClarctonNot sure about this. We almost party wiped fighting a single Orc...If we do this it's probably going to involve more persuading the leaders of armies, militias and what-not to band together and fight them...Alternatively, we could just walk into Clarcton, get captured and try to neutralize the situation from within. Although, just thinking about that is giving me flashbacks of the incident in the bandit camp...
>>2157756From my understanding that orc was a particularly dangerous one but yeah I think it's more convincing other people to do it
>>2157529>"Someone needs to assemble an army and retake Clarcton">"Someone should assasinate the orc leader">"We could go to Clarcton and investigate the situation first hand">>2157580>>"The paladins are probably already trying to destroy the orcs. They will help us"More like, they might best be able to tell us how we could help.I'm with Salaman on this.We .eed to do something, because ignoring orcs taking over towns is how you end up conquered. But we don't need to stop them ourselves.Maybe fo some recon on the way to the paladins.SAFE recon.If he doesn't want to do it, remind Salaman this orc collects books, lootable books.
>>2157583There will be no session tomorrow because of Christmas and stuffMost likely no session the week after as wellAfter the 2-week hiatus i'll make a post on /qtg/ when I make the new threadAlso i'll run the thread for 2 daysMerry Christmas
Merry Christmas Dolomite!
