Sulfur.Sulfur and death.These are the first two things that come into mind. Cracks of light barely illuminate your rubble tomb, by some miracle your body isn't crushed under the immense weight just yet. There is little time to register pain, you need to get out of here. Now.Mustering what little strength you have, you crawl out of danger soaked in your blood and sweat. In a erratic fashion, you wipe out the smear on your eyes but your vision is still blurry. Left and right, Swirling flames dancing manically and laughing at your untimely demise. Amidst all this chaos you hear a faint voice of a child ? you can't tell; your right ear is still ringing. "F-father...?" >Follow this voice>Ignore it, find a way out of this hell
>>2390054>Follow this voice
>>2390066You can't leave a child of your own in the heart of flames. You turn your back against what seems to be the door and start to look for him; maybe he is under some rubble too.The smoke is growing thicker at an alarming rate, you cut off a blood stained piece of cloth to cover your face with it. Your eyes search fanatically for any sign of life but to no avail.That is until you find a lonely finger sticking out of a pile half burnt books. In an instant, you claw these book out of the way.... Only to find a charred corpse of a woman. Her blackened flesh still sizzling, you can only tell she is a woman by her face which is mostly unscathed. Is this your servant? your sister? your wife? You can not remember. Without thinking, take off her gold ring. It...it feels important to you. The moment you turn around, you are greeted by an unrelenting force easily throwing you next to the corpse. "Hello father, I thought i killed you." your eyes bleed profusely, the mere act of blinking erupts a tremendous pain. You close your eyes practically at the mercy of this thing.>Then finish the job, demon!>I am no father. Not to a festering abomination at least.>This burning Chaos...why?

>>2390181>>2390233A twisted laugh erupts from this unholy child. "Pitiful man, to think i harbored love and loyalty for such a monster. No...Death is too much simple of a punishment for you. You.Deserve.Much.More." Your body jolts in agony as a sharp object stabs your chest. This child gives you a gentle kiss on your forehead."Goodnight, Father." ____________________________Death hasn't come for you. That or the afterlife is some Yolkiz forest. Yolkiz ? How did you remember this? By all accounts, you should be dead but here you are, without an ounce of pain. How is this even possible?>Check yourself first>Check your surroundings first.

You spot a mushroom shelf on a rotting tree trunk. Its name is on the tip of your tongue if only you can remember. However, you are positive that these are not edible.Now why will you be interested in mushrooms in the first place? It must be somehow related to your profession. Hmm.The other notable thing to spot is a steady stream of water running through the heart of the forest. That's a very good sign. You can't help but to smile at this glimpse of hope.>Wash yourself before anything>Check yourself first>Walk alongside the stream to the north>Walk alongside the stream to the south.

All your wounds were carefully dressed and taken care of, this can't be some traditional healing. Your pocket had a tiny piece of paper with some hastily written words on it: ' Note: Don't unwrap the dagger unless it is in the Lidgeo circle .Now we are even.-K' More questions with little answers. You finally notice said dagger on your right side. It is wrapped with soft black silk . In a moment of silence, you can both hear and feel it throbbing like a beating heart. 'I will set you free...''A single stab...''You long for me...''I am your eternal reward...' Whispers seeps from this dagger, a thousand voice, each one softer and more tempting than the other.>This folly will not unphase me! Do you hear me you bastard?!>[You can not resist, unwrap this beautiful blade]>[Throw this cursed thing as far as you can]>[Tuck it to your side, follow the stream to the North/South]>[Leave it with your clothes while you wash yourself]

You find a small bear cub who is enjoying himself on the side of the stream.His hulking mother eyes you for a brief moment then dispels any concern she has. Thank the stars, you doubt you can outrun such beast. Using this dagger is not an option either.After an hour or so, you stumbles upon...

You check what is inside the satchel.Three apples , a loaf of brown bread and twenty pieces of copper. Not bad. The sword is serviceable. Probably sold for the first bloke around. You take a mouthful of one of the apple. Strange, It is almost tasteless. Must be stale or something.You keep following the stream until...

>>2390655>>2390632>>2390620>>2390612You find yourself at the edge of the forest with a clear view of surrounding hills and fields. Not only you are next to the road but also close to a woman of the robe with her two blue plumed ironclad guards next to a small shrine. An Innate hatred for her stirs within you, you can't tell why.What is her title.... Sisersta ? Yes, They are so called blessed by the stars above. White robes with blue linings, this has to be one.One of the bodyguards raises his sword when he sees yours. The other simply notifies the Sisersta of your presence. He assumes a less aggressive stance with his polearm"Who goes there?" declares the sword wielding one. > I mean no harm [Lower your sword]> [be honest, explain everything]> Sisersta, help me if you will.> I ask for directions only>[ignore them, find the nearest post sign around]

Everything starts to fade on your peripheral vision 'Kill her...''Slit her throat...''Lick her bones...''I am your eternal reward...'The heart beating of the dagger grows louder temptations repeat themselves for the umpteenth time. It is too much! too much! You-........._______________________ You find yourself pinned to the ground gasping for a lick of air.

He is beyond salvation. He is a slave to whim of the dagger.""Milday, He is clearly a danger to everyone around! We can not let him live, his attack is enough for some choppin' !"Again, she refuses "I am aware, Izabeau, While I can not guide him to redemption. The stars above has given this tainted soul a second chance. A man of his ilk can aid him. There is an alchemist who can help him in Zaltm" The two guards reluctantly allow you to stand up. "Here," She gave you a silver and five copper pieces "These will help you along your way. Take the first right path and you will reach the village. I pray you won't harm anyone along the way.

>>2390956Thanks for the run!
You can't help to admire the full moon and the array of its so called 'divine' stars. You may have lost your memories but you are more than certain that your past self also considers these celestial as mere hogwash. Your newly acquired coins shall serve you well for the next couple of days, still, you must not slack off; this accursed dagger will be the end of you if you don't act. You can see the outline of Zaltm, It feels like any backwater shitehole alright from here. Fields of wheat surround this sorrowful village hiding the mire behind a soothing scenery. Good, you are almost here. "Love,Love, Love...Mine,mine, mine, mine,mine.We,we,we,we." You heard a crackling voice mumbling to your right. Somehow, it feels oddly familiar.On the first glance, it looks like any normal peasant. Initial appearances are always deceitful. This.... thing has odd proportionals for a human; twisted hands and feet carefully hidden by the surrounding wheat. Moreover, this thing was made out of straws and animal flesh. The only natural thing about it was its black hair.Whether it is out of morbid curiosity or blood-still fear, you didn't move a muscle. Your eyes briefly spot stains of dry blood on some of the wheat. All traces back to her other hand which is holding a freshly torn head. It was of that villager in the clearing . The poor bloke might have stand a chance with his sword. You don't feel remorseful , however. His lover's head was squished under this abomination.You froze when that thing finally acknowledges you, its rotten face still hidden under its hair. You don't seems to be of that import to it. The creature holds the bloke's head close to it breasts firmly occasionally kissing him on the forehead "Love,Love,Together,Together." For the first time, The dagger's temptations has cease. You swear you can hear something else.... Muffled cries. >Draw your wimpsy sword, you owe this bloke some revenge at the very least>Attempt to communicate with this creature?>Run, as fast as you can, warn the village of the monster lurking in the fields>Slowly back away, this is not your problem. Look for this alchemist.
>>2397355>Draw your wimpsy sword, you owe this bloke some revenge at the very leastAccording to the guard, we look like shit. If we make it into a village with people, we might as well bring them good news. their monster is no more
>Run, as fast as you can, warn the village of the monster lurking in the fieldsWere not prepared to fight anything In this state, especially under the dagger's foreign spell.

>>2397379>>2397515A single swipe can render your arm with ease. Caution and wit are your best allies. You ready your blade assuming an aggressive stance.The beast however, keeps ignoring you completely uttering more useless gibberish. You are at an arm length when it drops on its mutilated knees still holding the villager's head tightly.You don't understand. Is such abomination capable of remorse and guilt? or is this merely a trick to lay your guard down? Regardless It remains still.> Strike while luck smiles at you> Attempt to communicate with the creature> Leave it and go the village
>>2397605kill the fucker
>>2397666>>2397682You struck the beast with every ounce of strength in your body, a nasty gash in the base of its neck followed by another strike sealed the deal. It now shares the same fate of its victims. You can't explain it but it felt natural to you like an old habit. Strange, what was even more stranger was the congregation of field rats, at least half a dozen. piling over the headless creature while ignoring the bloke entirely.Not to be associated with the bloke's death, you left his sword and satchel at the scene taking only the coins with you. These dolts are probably waiting for the first pyre to blaze or the first rope to hang. You want none of that.___________As expected, the village is quieter than the grave. Some loud snoring would sometimes seep from the poor dwellings at uneven intervals.The single torch lit around belongs to two half drunk town watch. These watchmen have a glorified pointy sticks or a pitiful excuse for a spear. you probably can snap it in half with ease. No iron or studded leather either, just some plain clothes. A middle aged woman is among them, she looks really panicked and stressed. They are doing little to soothe her troubled soul.>Wait until they are done with her>Interrupt the troubled womanAnd>Ask for The alchemist>Ask for somewhere to stay>Inform them about what happened in the field

You have a feeling that you too will do the same."Hey, Vagabond, ever heard of..of" he burps right at your face "...Curfew?"" 'old on Rees" the other watchman points at his shoes for some reason then he points back at you "He got somethin' on his slimmmmy tongue. Lets hear'em.""An Alchemist lives in this village. I need to speak to him." you went straight to the point."You daft or something? We are in the heart of the night! Besides, She is a feisty one. A lazy bum like you can only dream of meeting her.""She? I thoug-" Your thoughts are interrupted when a drunken hand crept to your dagger side "What you hidin'?

>>2398508"E-eyes? Like Ol'Thomas" you hear an audible gulp.The drunken duo were visibly shaken "Keep that thing away from us." They give you some hazy directions to the Alchemist house. Even if they didn't, you would simply have to look for a structure that doesnt look like a dunghole Stopping here for today. starting tomorrow at the same time. i will post it on /qtg/ goodnight and thanks for playing.
The Alchemist house claimed a small hillock at the edge of a the village. It reeks of smells that are not foreign to you. It is bigger than most dwellings around here. Surrounded by a small wooden fence It has a well and a small garden with different plants and mushrooms. You sat on the ground next to the wooden gate. Your body and mind are exhausted from everything so far. Time for a shuteye.________Sulfur.Sulfur and death.Screams and Wails claw through your ears, you find yourself outside of a burning manor with intensified flames licking the very skies.A Small Silhouette emerge from the burning manor phasing in and out of your field of view until it is right in front of you. "Hello father. Enjoying a peaceful sleep?" >[ Do not utter a single word. Tis but a dream]>What do you want, vile demon?>You will never grant me peace. I will end you. Sooner or later.>Of course, this is music to my ears

>>2400036>>2400048The child churns out a wicked laugh " After what you have done to me, I have tried to end myself...to no avail. You made me what i am...a monster. " The Silhouette in front of you twists and turns enveloping the skies and the with blackness " Your suffering shall know no end. I will avenge myself......and the others." ____________You wake up abruptly; another hand tries to claim the dagger. This time however, it belongs to a red haired woman, half your age. She wears a familiar white robe with symbols and circles all over it. Instinctively you back away clutching to the dagger like never before. This earned you a puzzled look."For a second, i thought you were dead. Who are you? why you are here?" >Help me [Explain her everything]>You are the village Alchemist? Can you rid me of this dagger>Aren't you awfully young to meddle with Alchemy?>I slayed a monster in the field [Tell her about the beast of flesh and straw]>You won't cut it, too young. I won't risk my life while you experiment on me [Leave]
>>2400111>Help me [Explain her everything]
>>2400119>>2400238"Standing here in the open won't do us anyone good. Come inside."You follow her to a well furnished small dinning room. The first thing you notice is a crude creature waiting inside. A child sized wood doll thing with a white ceramic mask to hide its hideous face. "Mama! Mama! Customer? Visitor? Visitor! Tea time? Lunch time? Time time?" "Yes, Kotella, This is a visitor. Good job" If anything the Alchemist was a tad annoyed "Pardon this rather energetic homunculus, I will eventually get better at this." She whispers apologetically._________Throughout the next hour or so, you told her everything about your current plight. She opened her mouth for the second time (first time was when her homunculus put salt instead of sugar in the tea) "Quite a tale you have there, I do sense something Alchemcial of your supposed cursed dagger. But before anything, I must see if you have our talent in the first place. Many claim that they are alchemists, One second."The woman left you to fetch a strange cubic contraption. Ah yes, An old model of the Zolyhydlon ...wait what?"Put your hand inside, it won't hurt....much.">Very well [Put your hand in the heart of this contraption]>I rather not lose my hand today

>>2400379>>2400416>>2400435The insides of the contraption are slimy and viscous as if you stuff your hand inside someone's gullet. Whatever little space around your hand was sucked away in a quick fashion. It starts to whir like a satisfied cat.Suddenly, Kotella barges in with a shining dagger and a twitching hand "Danger! Danger? Oh, No danger. Mama test Visitor. I sorry." she retreats as fast as she came."Show me," The Alchemist is more than intrigued. You pull out your hand only to find it covered in pink sticky goo."Is that enough for you?""Enough? This is great!" her face brightens "Not only are you an Alchemist but also you have some affinity in Homunculusei! You are just what i need!">So are you going to help me or not? >What's your terms? >I will not *helping* you with anything. I will pay you with silver and copper>Of course you do, Your abomination is one step from stabbing your customers in the neck
>>2400496>So are you going to help me or not?
>>2400503>>2400610"Of course I will! Provided that you will help me in return. Kotella, bring me the fleshy papers and Void chalks."Her Homunculus joyfully nods then disappears further into the house. "I...I lost my father recently. He was a great Alchemist, something that i will never reach by myself. With proper assistance, I am to reach his level of skills. You have no memory, no shelter,no reliable source of income, not even a name...""I see where this is going." You grit your teeth in anger. You are powerless. "I demand servitude . Not for menial jobs, that is for my future creations. In return i will promise you to get rid of the evil inside the dagger. Caro Foedus will be our witness and our executor."The wooden Homunculus came back with thin sheets of grey flesh and black Chalk. "Ready? We Ready Mama?" >I will not degrade myself to be your slave [Leave]>I see no other option for me. I accept.
>>2400727>I will not degrade myself to be your slave [Leave]Thats a terrible deal, she probably wants this more than us.

Vestra Mieglo! Help us please!"The Alchemist left the dinning with a concerned look on her face. Her Homunculus opened the door "What is it this time?""Stars aids us! The wheat fields... a beastie make it its home with Donnal's head sticking out of it! We should have listened to his mum yesterday! Stars above! Stars above!""Clam down you oaf!" Vestra is an Alchemist title just like Sisersta, Now you remember "How big is it? what is it made off? give me colour, shape, everything!"The Watchman Rees had more nerve than his friend "Big as four oxes, A miserable pile of flesh, straw , teeth and Rat hide.

Try to contain it for as long as possible."Kotella opened a small hatch near the entrance, this must be her working place " Watch your step."_________You didn't expect her or rather her late father's laboratory to be so spacious. Instruments, books, ingredients all around you. The first thing Mieglo did was consulting one of her books, after quickly skimming through it. "I am pretty certain we are dealing with a faulty Homunculus . Donnel's old lady bought one a month ago *despite* my sayings from a traveling merchant. " Anger is drawn clearly on her face as she remembers the incident " 'Ooooh but tis cheap Milady. You be Jealous! You just want our coin' Serves her r....anyways, We are making Mors Jocur . It will separate the different ingredients of the Homunculus effectively killing it without scorching the whole field or affecting the soil. ""I...I used to brew it a lot."

>>2401412>>2401426There are more than four processes. While you can't recall the more advanced ones, the basics ones shine in your mind like a beacon of light. They are: Nigredo Basic conception of any Transmutation rite. Probably the most important one. You kill the essence of the elements in the circle. Their previous form forever changed. Albedo The slow purification process of their raw form, from the darkness, a new light shall rise ever so defiant of its past lives. Citrinitas The Rebirth of a new entity, ever so frail and blind to the world outside. The simplest of miscalculation can easily end the whole progress of the rite. Rubedo The reshaping and the final maturation of the new form into the desired result. One of the most variable.At this very moment a surge of old memory struck you... Souls They are conceived in the stars far above, such entities took pity on the lack of life and so they gently showered the earth with souls creating life. Those who are blessed by the celestial are holy men and women possessing great powers.Then they are people like you and this young woman, who looked at the supposed gods and shunned their divinity. They are not gods. they are creatures that can and will die with Colourless souls inside of them that can be harvested. The ability to be able to channel these unused souls make you a 'tainted' or as you like to call yourself: An Alchemist Of course these same souls can be used for ill deeds like raising the dead but this is not your concern, your profession is legal. 1/2

>>2402731>>2402723>>2401893Your hands starts to work on their own. Yes, you drew this circle dozens if not hundreds of times."What are you doing?" Mieglo clearly wasn't happy with you going on your own way." Reigulamatas Circle , It gives more controls over both the Nigredo and Rubedo processes but in return, the Albedo process is much slower." The Alchemist wants to lash at you, it is on the tip of her tongue but instead she swallows most of it "We have little time to waste but fine. Let's get to it."Mieglo placed the three elements needed for the rite:-Rotten flesh which will act as the base of the concoction and it will increase the affinity against the beast outside.- wormwood powder , from the common wormwood which is found in nearby forests. Acts as a stabilizer -Lamentas Arae: The Ethereal Alchemical element , this is the reagent . The most expensive of all the three ingredients. It is contained in void glass, it is said that these are the vast emptiness inside a dead star itself. Black and purple hazes ever so shimmering at different angles.Alchemical ingredients are different to contain and preserve since they are normally fused with things beyond our world. You are glad to remember this.Mieglo took another peek through the book, making sure that the ratios are all set. "We are performing a Geminos Perfectas , meaning we will have to split the rite equally. Choose two processes and leave the other two to me.>I will take ____ and ____>I got this. Step back and watch me work wonders
>>2402833>difficult to contain

>>2402833She frowns but doesn't say anything more. You position yourself next to the circle. For an Alchemist, the most common method for transmutation is via using your hands. More advanced Alchemists can issue commands to the circle verbally or even telepathically.The circle first acknowledges you as its master, Two small slits in time and space has opened on each side of the circle. This is where you will assume control.There are five states of matter.Three are Natural (Solid, Liquid, gas) while two are Alchemical (Ethereal and Void) In the Nigredo process, one must alter the state of natural ingredient. Alchemical ingredients are not advised to be altered. it goes like thisSolid--->Liquid--->Gas then the loop will start all overTo convert a natural state to an Alchemical state, It must be momentary exposed to the corpse of a dead star. This process is not reversible.-Solid+ Dead Star----> Void-Liquid+ Dead Star----> Ethereal-Gas+ Dead Star----> Ethereal The is another unstable state, the Immaterium . It is usually a brief state where a natural state AND an Alchemical state combines. It is very hard to maintain and to preserve. Not for novice Alchemists.Any Natural state+ Any Alchemical state----> Immaterium Void+Star--->Immaterium Ethereal +Dead Star--->Immaterium Immaterium (Spontaneously)----> The most dominant state "Change to meat first to Liquid, then the powder to Void and finally the Arae remains as it is." Mieglo gave you instructions.>Alter the state of said ingredients (2D5)>Ignore her instructions, Alter them as to the states you prefer (3D5)
>>2403050>Ignore her instructions, Alter them as to the states you prefer (3D5)

Rolled 2, 4 = 6 (2d5)>>2403296
>>2403299>>2403255>>2403165You take a deep brought and channel your thoughts through the slits, all of the three ingredients were swallowed up into the unknown. Now you recall the importance of the Vocalles . They are indicators of whether he first stage has been successful or not. There isnt a singular true rule for the Vocalles but to put it in simpler terms, you hear the endless echoes either inside or outside a dead star. They are otherworldly, almost impossible to interpret. A waterfall of dreams piercing the concept of duality. It made no sense, you are aware of that but that is what these sounds meant to you. A mild Success .The three ingredients return again to this releam, still bound by the circle. Thus begins the next process, Albedo .Albedo relies on the success of Nigredo, since you achieved mild success , the purification progress will take a surmountable amount of time. That is of course if you haven't used this particular circle. It is fine, you are mentally prepared to maintain this process."It is a shame to let go of the Mallum Prima ." She sighed. Mieglo is speaking of the first residue of transmutation. These black sluggish Ethereal element is more or less the leftovers from both Albedo and Rubedo processes. It has its uses but unless you command the circle to not to dispose of the Mallum, it is gone forever. >Begin the Albedo process without the Mallum Prima in mind [D30]>Begin the Albedo process with the Mallum Prima in mind [D40]
>>2403400>Begin the Albedo process with the Mallum Prima in mind [D40]
Rolled 33 (1d40)>>2403400
>>2403652You close your eyes concentrating on the task ahead. Black slugs slowly start to materialize in the heart of the circle with one intention: to escape the confines of their birthplace.They lose any form of sentience the moment they crawl outside forming the useful Mallum Prima. A thin black line is formed on the edge of the circle. You can sense some traces of residue inside the circle. While you haven't fully purified the mixture, This is not a deal breaker. A Resounding Success Sweat slowly trickles from your forehead, Transmutation is physically and mentally demanding. You take a deep breath focusing on the third process.The process of Citrinitas will begin where you will combine all of these ingredients in the heart of the circle. Had it been Natural states only, It would have been easier but alas you have two Alchemical state to combine for a new rebirth. The new mixture will be an Immaterium, you will need to carefully guide it to its next desired state which is Liquid . The liquid rotten meat should facilitate the process since it is the base for the concoction. >Perform the Citrinitas process [D30]>Make Mieglo perform it instead as well as the last stage
Rolled 16 (1d30)>>2403703>Perform the Citrinitas process [D30]All these rolls is asking for a failure at some point.

>>2403846>>2404010>>2404013And thus the rebirth began, you press your hand harder against the floor to confirm your authority over the circle as all the ingredients are merged into an Immaterium in the center.The rebirth has finished, a new liquid entity floats in the air with pulsating red capillaries and other minor strands . It is not perfectly done however. Not bad for a first try. A Resounding Success You sense exhaustion within, slowly eating you from the inside. You are almost done, no need to think about it. The final stage is at hand. The Rubedo , the Reigulamatas circle gives you more control over the final reshaping. It has two folds, the first one is give the Ordo to the new mixture; Extra Non-state properties like being acidic, viscous , having high melting point and so on . The more properties you desire, the harder the stage will be. This also applies to more complex properties like flesh eating only or being frozen on contact with organic material . The second fold is to remove any residue. The Mallum Secundus is usually lesser and of more importance than Mallum Prima. Same rules apply. "Homunculus eater and Ignore Vegetation." says Mieglo. This makes sense. You starts reshaping.>Reshape the mixture with only these two properties in mind [2D5]And>Add a simple property [XD3]>Add a complex property [XD5]>Order the circle to extract Mallum Secundus [D10]>None of the above, keep it simple.
>>2404187Can we add "Dissipate when task is complete"?

>>2404222>Mallum Secundustake it or leave it. I have no preference
>>2404224>>2404399You couldn't implement the dissipation property. The rest however, was neatly implemented . Maybe you will extract Mallum Secundus in another time. Mors Jocur Concoction is done. The Alchemist secured it in three glass grenades, it possesses the smell of a thousand death enough to knock out those with a faint heart. Its colour has changed to dark red like coagulated blood. "I am impressed, Good job. Come on, we have a faulted one to kill." At this moment, you felt dizzy and a bit woozy partially because of the rite as well as the droning whispers seeping from the dagger. It speaks ills of you like a maddening gossip yet you can't really tell what they are saying. You eye finally catch the wooden Homunculus sulking in a lonely corner with a knife of her own. She was waiting for the slightest of mistakes.>I need a moment of respite. I am not feeling well>Lead the way [Leave with Mieglo]
>>2404459>I'm afraid we will need to take care of this dagger problem immediately, otherwise I cannot guarantee I won't lose control and damage you or your property.>S̡ͮͯh͖̬͉̣̫̊ͣ́e̞͙̦ ̝̝̺̂ͫ́̐̋̚͠c͉̭͂̍ͣ͛o̪͙̝̭̐̉͑ͯm̶̰̉e̛͆͛s͓͇̟̯̍̊!̛̐

" Whatever you have been cursed with with, it has to be chained to your soul . This will make you able to have a chance for resisting its temptations. My father made it long ago so it might have lost a bit of its potency."Without a second thought, you drink this peculiar potion. The whispers did start to quell just a bit. "You can rest in my guest room. Try to think of a name when i come back. Kotella is at your disposal...just don't try to give her long commands. She is still too finicky for them."________The woman left the house, you find it strange for her to trust a complete stranger but you shrug it off. The guest room is covered in layers of dust, you were just glad to rest on an actual bed. The Homunculus stands right next to the door with glaring eyes. She feels more of a warden rather than a servant.>Food, you bring food.>Water, bring a cup of water>Leave, I sleep time>[Attempt to strike a conversation with her]>Books, bring me books, I read>write in

>>2404589>>2404679Her neck joints got stuck momentarily, she had to snap her neck violently in one jerky movement to fix it "Mama? I love Mama! Mama loves me!" Her usual enthusiasm died a down bit "I no good girl... I try best for Mama! Mama best! You hurt Mama and I STAB STAB STAB. Mama first!" You wonder which is more dangerous around you, the dagger or this twisted thing. Regardless, you keep your thoughts to yourself.>I good now, I help Mama.>Food, you bring food.>Water, bring a cup of water>Name, Help find name me>Leave, I sleep time>[Attempt to strike another conversation with her]>Books, bring me books, I read>write in

>>2404726>>2404759While Kotella did leave the room, you can still sense her morbid presence habit the door with her ceramic mask glued to the keyhole. No matter, you delve into deep sleep._______You weren't plagued by the demon thankfully. In fact, it was almost a blissful sleep. Huh, It is nearing sunset. You look through the window to find general peace and quite. The concoction must have worked quite nicely.A small (obviously cold) meal is waiting for you in an addition to a set of plain clothes. All this time you were in some ragtags barely fit for an Alchemist.After changing your clothes, You were disgusted by your food. Both the potato AND the half roast chicken felt like a formless blob. What's with thes-You stopped for a second, wiping out the dust of the mirror with your sleeve. The mirror shows you a darkened tongue dotted with tiny black buds. 'Just the beginning...''You shall suffer...'I am your eternal reward...' The masked Homunculus entered shortly afterwards, your will never get used to that thing "Mama wait you! Study room. Come Come!" You followed its tiny steps to the second floor which consisted of many locked rooms and one long corridor.You entered perhaps the best place in this mediocre house. It has a decent sum of books and a somewhat luxurious desk . Her father and you could have been fast friends. Oh well.Hmph, This Anima Vinculum ... It looks really familiar, This large metallic sphere houses a Hollowed Homunculus which acts as a tool to bait the colourless souls to inhabit it. Then the harvest will begin. It is a very slow process which can take up the months. Looks like this Anima Vinculum is modified somehow. You will get to look at it later."How did it go?""Wonderful," she exclaimed, "It stood little chance and no one got hurt. They took the remnants of Donnel for a proper funeral." Kotella brought the same contract paper in great anticipation "Time time? Contract time?" "Not yet. We still need a name before anything.">I trust that you have an appropriate one for me>Let Kotella decide, It doesn't really matter for me>Can you utter the name of some Famous Alchemists?

"Bartholomaeus Malthazsar."The woman replied " Well you do like a foreigner." So far, most around here had more or less the same complexion; round white faces with petite noses and smooth brown or red hair. You on the other hand had a pale skin, crooked nose and square-like face with jagged short black hair. You remember a saying that Alchemisim and other soul-tampering professions writhe the body over the decades. It is no wonder that the pillars of Alchemy are all wrinkled and frail like a twig ready to snap."Now, to Discuss our terms. I will provide food, shelter and a workplace for you . In addition of aiding you in severing the link between you and the dagger and- if i become more capable, I will aid you to extinguish this demon child of yours .

She writes down hers first then it is your turn.An burst of purple fire consumed the paper instantly. You sense a certain presence close to your chest, an obligation to fulfill this contract as well as a watchful eye from beyond. A glimpse of memory touched your mind, you remember how often did you bind yourself with contracts in the past, there is a hazily trail of memory afterwards. It somehow didn't end too good for the other party."Welcome to Hagathar's Alchemical Assortments .

>>2407667Your vision goes black and yet you can hear every sound your body and dagger emit. You hear a shriek followed by another of higher pitch then the sweet sensation of blood washes over you. The crimson haze is gone, you open your eyes slowly. It immediately darts over a wood hand clinging to a small knife, the rest of its owner is shattered to a pieces. Such Immense strength...could it be yours?Your murky reflection lies beneath your feet. Mieglo was there right in front of you drowning her own pool of blood. With what little life remaining in her, she instinctively holds the gaping slash at her neck. Words and gurgles of blood tangle together forming an unintelligent gibberish.But most importantly, you are holding your master. It is more than satisfied from your last deed. It slumbers for now. The black silk on the floor shrivels till it vanishes from existence, you have no idea how to conceal your master anymore.St-stop! he is NOT your master. You have a free will.

>>2408335whats that? oh just saving the thread.
>>2408335 There HAS to be a way to save her. Either you nor her are bound to the mundane laws of nature or Death.Your eyes widened, skimming through the array of old books and tombs for just the right thing to trigger your lost memory. 'Sanguine Memoirs by Robertso Vangale' Blood, especially human blood, is not favorable in Alchemy since it is normally associated with... less than legal acts. And yet it possess some unique Statis properties With the Kotella's knife, you cut yourself for a few drops of blood mixing it with hers. Unlike Void chalk circles, Sanguine circles are awfully unstable . Mixing Blood is one way of strengthen the circle. It was hastily drawn but it will do. The Cor Unum circle should be trap her soul in this limbo status.The circle struggles to register you as its master. It is filled with fear, Mieglo's fear . Yet you bend it to your will in mere seconds1/2
>>2408335You transmit your thoughts to the circle. Mieglo's now unconscious body starts to twitch uncontrollably until a red blazing orb emerges from her chest. This is her soul. Like a moth drawn to the flames, her souls drifts toward the heart of the circle then it abruptly stops. Now you have some sufficient time to think on how to fix her body...before it rots of course.You have a couple of options. Each is equally risky.The most obvious one is to create a powerful regenerative potion. But there is a catch; these potions ONLY works where there is a soul bound to the body. So even if you made the best thing there is, you must put her soul back again and wish it won't depart while potion is working.The second option is to create a Homunculus using her blood, Then you would have to either sacrifice it or convince it to be sacrificed. This is risky because this creation can easily overcome you . It will be also born with innate fear of you. The third option way much easier, just create any Homunculus and insert her soul in it. But you have a feeling she won't like it. No one will.The fourth option is to summon a Demon It is said that when someone die, his soul shall ascend to the stars but the tainted ones like you and her shall have a different fate; Their soul shall sink to the depth of the earth for eternal damnation. However, some powerful souls do manage to climb back up from the fiery depths of earth...These are demons. They are powerful entities with masterful skills. Now to think of it, This K individual who have aided you might as well be a demon. You can try to summon one for an easy fix to her body but there are two problems to said solution:They are extremely unpredictable; one can demand an apple while another can demand the souls of everyone you love and cherish. The second problem is in the act itself. It is illegal....Around here at least.The dagger remains silent yet you can sense its desire to consume this delicious soul...Its...so.... >Brew a regenerative potion.>Conjure a Homunculus made from her blood>Just Conjure any Homunculus and Be done with it>Summon a demon, prepare for the worst>You are done with this place, leave .>Consume here delicious soul. It is calling you...
>>2408633>Conjure a Homunculus made from her bloodMake her look more sexy or something.
>Conjure a Homunculus made from her blood
>>2408633>>Brew a regenerative potion.might be the best course of action, what the other anons voted for depends on how intelligent her blood Homunculus turns out
>>2408633>>2408754Before anything, you managed to collect all of her blood in a couple of vials. You have less than two days to save her body.Before committing to anything just yet, you recall more general rules about Conjuring a Homunculus:-Homuncului rite is pretty much akin to any transmutation rite. For the most part is has the same. There is an extra process which is used more often: Quebirth which is originally a sub-process of Citrinitas. It revolves about the amplification of your ingredients. otherwise, you will wind up with a tiny sized Homunculus. Some circles or Alchemical ingredients shortens or even bypass said process. Furthermore, It governs the age and the mentality of the Homunculus with a child being the easiest and an adult being the hardest. -Unless you are using an advanced circle and utilizing high quality ingredients, NEVER try to mix three or more different ingredients; the end result will be a total failure and a waste of resources. X+X+X=OK X+X+Y=OK X+Y+Z= NOT OK -Human blood is usually inserted as an addendum to make the Homunculus believe that it is the son/daughter of the blood donor. This does not count as an ingredient since it is added via Nodes in small amounts. however, in your case. It is impossible to do so since blood will already make a huge portion of the rite which after the scarifice, will yield what you need to heal the wound AND resupply her with new blood. -Human flesh, teeth, hair , skin and bones are illegal as ingredients . Only blood is allowed (but not favored).-Liquid, gaseous , Ethereal and Immaterieum (kind of impossible though) materials are advised not to be the sole ingredient for a Homunculus. A solid base is usually preferred in the mix to give the Homunculus some form. In this case, the best candidate is swine flesh since it is the closest to human flesh so either:Blood+Blood+FleshORFlesh+Flesh+Swine-A colourless soul is a MUST to give the Homunculus. Otherwise, you are just brewing another potion. Thankfully, it appears that there is already one at hand.1/2
>>2408904>must to be given toi will try to create a big chart/diagram thing instead of these blocks of words.
>>2408904Blood+Blood+FleshWhat about 2 flesh and 1 blood?
>>2408938>>2408904Blood+blood+fleshflesh+flesh+bloodi mean that, sorry.
>>2408832>>2408684>>2408638-Sacrifices are strongly tied to how much experience the Homunculus had in its lifetime as a pseudo-human since the colourless soul affect the corporal vessel they are in. Strong emotions (be it good or bad) mature the soul and in turn the remnants of the homunculus after the sacrifice.These are the very basics rules. Of course some are meant to be broken. In your current state, you don't recall some of them.Before anything, you must ready yourself mentally. Which method are you going to use? >Aggressive approach, you don't need to 'talk' to that pitiful thing, you will kill it the moment it spawns>Persuasive approach, With your tongue, you will convince your creation to lay its life for the woman you are trying to say>Deceptive approach, Lure that thing with nice words and smooth moves before a quick jab to the heart.

That means you that you will be Unarmed while creating this Homunculus.Time for work____________The night beckons father than you would have thought. Good. You feel more safe under the cover of the night. All the initial preparations are done. Thankfully, there are some stored meat a small pantry. Nothing is left but to choose a circle or the amount of ingredients to add.A flesh based Homunculus will probably be more bulky and animal-like. its healing yield might not be as much as the blood based thought but you doubt it would be as intelligent. On a side note, its flesh will be more than luxurious meal if curated properly.A blood based Homunculus will probably be more amorphous and nimble.

You had to keep in mind that Rubedo process shall be even harder thanks to these impurities. A mild failure You proceed to the third process, Citrinitas. This rebirth process shall prove to be more than pivotal in the rite. Unlike normal Transmutation process, the rebirth Immaterium will not turn to the most dominant state . It will form a crude body of the Homunculus of various states according to ingredients used. It is possible to disconnect from the circle briefly, without any control, the circle will either plunge into chaos creating an abomination or it will simply disassemble. The Stability of the circle determines how long can it last without its master.With less than a minute to spare, you transfer the colourless soul into the heart of the circle. This is the core of the Homunculus . Let's the rebirth begin... >Perform the Citrinitas process [D32]So i was thinking, since i have you or 1 player most of the time, should i roll as well to complete the best out of three thing? I mean it is not exactly fair , you know?
>>2410532>let the rebirth
Rolled 22 (1d30)>>2410532>Perform the Citrinitas process [D32]Your call my dude
Rolled 30 (1d32)>>2410548Shit!I fucked it
>>2410553>>2410548nah, it would be better for you to roll twice more. not me.good roll tho
Rolled 28 (1d32)>>2410560>>2410553
Rolled 21 (1d32)>>2410560>twice more,well okay
>>2410553how is this
>>2410606Mostly makes sense>any natural state + any alchemical state = immateriumWhen does this process occur?The immaterium to mixed/most dominant state I'm not sure I understand.
>>2410553The rebirth was almost flawless despite its impurities. A tiny creature wiggles in the heart of the circle, it has no definite features as it should be.Quebirth process is next, To achieve the best results, you have to match as many things as you can like the gender, the age, the general shape of the body and its intelligence and behavior (to some extent). The circle gives you a vivid outline of the amplified Homunculus. you can leave it as it is if you want but it is not advisable. Sanguine slime Gender: NoneSize: Slightly larger than a normal adultAge: Child Mentality/Intelligence: Sentient, Below average, primal.Shape: Feminine, Amorphous Behavior: Paranoid, Fearful, Seclusive Abilities: ???>Start Quebirth process with amplification only in mind [d5]>Start Quebirth process with amplification and other change in mind [specify then add the cost to d10]Change cost:Size: 3 for smaller/ 5 for biggerGender: 3 Age: 6Mentality/Intelligence : 10 (doesn't fully change it)Shape: 2Behavior is not changeable.Reveal abilities: 4>>2410615During Citrinitas from last timeAlchmecial state (Void powder, Lamentas Arae ) + Natural state (Liquid rotten meat)--->Immaterium--->Most dominant state (Liquid in this case)In this processAlchemical state (Ethereal blood and void swine flesh) + Dead star---> Immaterium--->Mixed (The Homunculus itself)
>>2410679>add the cost to d5so if i only change the gender to female than i will have roll d8
Rolled 5, 1, 3 = 9 (3d5)>>2410685rolling for 2 other people that aren't here take myif somone else rolls it invalidates my second and maybe 3rd rolls. Count first roll
>>2410715so you are not changing anything?
>>2410679I think waiting until next thread might prudent to get maximum input, this choice seems rather importantas far as the process, yup, I'd say that makes sense now.
>>2410723No idea what I'm doing, How did swine get in there? Is swine and flesh two of the same things?1 blood to ethereal 1 void and keep the last blood to liquid.
>>24107311 flesh to void*
>>2410731We used swine-flesh when creating the homonculous
>>2410737I thought we picked normal flesh.....
>>2410715we are done with the material changing from last process. What i meant by changing is the homunculus itself; its age, gender, size, shape etcread again >>2410679>>2410726post yours now either way.
>>2410756age = mental age of homonculous or age of body?How difficult would it be to create a dead-ringer for her original body?
>>2410761mental AND bodyat least we need to get the gender and age right
Clarification: starting with a d5, and taking cost of size would make it a d8?
>>2410781yes ,if you are going for a smaller size.
Rolled 10 (1d24)>>2410679>Sizefairly short, up to our stomach (think Gimli sized)>genderFemale>ageLegal/18>shapeHuman female, rectangle body type
>>2410806Welp, guess we made a blob
Rolled 3 (1d24)>>2410808Or best of 3 I suppose
>>2410812one more roll
Rolled 12 (1d24)
>>2410827You managed only to change her gender and age. The rest remains as it is as far as you know. The crude hand part of the anchor did its best to help you. Mild Success The entity inside the circle took its first unconscious breath, it starts to twitch like an unborn child. The void flesh starts to form a pseudo malleable skeleton while some chunks floats idly inside this coagulated mass. Her right arm constant shifts to pointy masses. That is a concern.You are so close now. Only Rubedo process remains. Homunculus reshaping is very similar to transmutation reshaping. You can add either a simple or a complex property but it must comply to the body of the Homunculus; for an example, you can't make a water based Homunculus breathes fire BUT you can make it resist freezing. However it is very demanding, failure can creature faulty abominations.>Initiate the final reshaping [D22]>Initiate the final reshaping with Simple/complex properties [specify then add the cost to d22]Addition costsimple property : 10Complex property : 20
>>2410858If we sabotage it, IE give it a simple property of [no-cohesion] so it annihilates itself, do we have enough material to try again with a new homunculus?
>>2410870nope, we can't extract more blood. we poured all in on the circle and the Homunculus itself.It is also plausible to add bad properties but this will also give us a worse yield.
>>2410876Kind of reaching for this one but, how about [shapeshifting] as complex property to counteract its nightmare inducing form? Would that be possible?
>>2410879Well, it is both intelligent (so some extent) and amorphous, so in theory, it is plausible. by shapeshifting, she will be able to take the form of lets say a chair. this 'chair' will appear red and gooy so it is no mimicry. if you sit on it, you will sink inthat will be d42 though
Rolled 9 (1d42)>>2410858>Initiate the final reshaping with Simple/complex properties [specify then add the cost to d22]>"shapeshifting"Monstrous octopus, I choose you!

Rolled 30 (1d42)>>2410889
Rolled 5 (1d42)>>241075614 yoFsmallhourglass
>>2410898Sorry man, we got a blob
>>2410891>>2410889The circle starts to pulsate, the air around you thickens with unrelenting anticipation. Its bodyconvulses rapidly, the whole world around you seems to burst. The circle simply exploded into a red haze...Then silence.You vision went blurry for a couple of seconds due to exhaustion and the red mist all over the place. When the mist settles, you saw it before you... [/blue] Your Homunculus, alive [/blue] You start to recall your past:2 points gained on Circle Drawing, Progress for the next Circle technique : 2/54 points gained on Process Techniques, Progress for the next Process Technique : 4/53 points gained on Homunculus, Progress for the next Homunculus Technique : 3/71 point gained on controlling techniques, Progress for the next controlling techniques: 1/3 The Homunculus lies dormant on the floor, it vaguely looks like a humanoid figure except some parts are blobby in nature. It does it's best to take as little space as possible shriveling in this foreign, cruel world. Its right arm remain formless. This thing starts to hyper ventilate profusely "M-mama? Papa? M-Mama?" It hasn't notice you just yet.>Describe your next approach.
>>2410932I recommend this anon's approach:>>2408979>Persuasive approach, With your tongue, you will convince your creation to lay its life for the woman you are trying to saysacrifice you life for mommy, you ill be rebirthed in her womb as her next child.
>>2410941backing my previous suggestion
>>2410941 "M-mamma? where is Ma-" Then something snaps inside her gelatinous mind, she immediately starts backing away, her right arm forms a shaky shield "W-who you? you, you, not mama. I you s-care i!! what is scary fice??" her shaky shield fuses with her legs, its body trembles more.>Shake its feeble soul with more intimidation and fear >Attempt to sooth it>Back away, leave her for now>distract it while looking for something in your surroundings to kill it
>>2410954>Attempt to sooth it
>>2410956>>2410958You raised your hand in the air. Your words, your moves ,everything you do is slow and smooth. you keep a safe distance enough for it not to panic. It seems that she starts to ease up just a bit. Her bloody shield lessens a bit. She is still cowering up though.It inspects itself momentarily, it inserts its hand inside its chest poking a fleshy part inside "W-what am i? why you no me? why you small?" >Be honest, explain everything>Only explain its nature as a Homunculus>Make up some lie >distract it while looking for something in your surroundings to kill it
>>2410976>Only explain its nature as a Homunculus
>>2410976>lets talk about this over a cup of tea>proceed to make tea
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>2410979>>2410983
>>2410979>>2410983 "I-I stay here." It glued itself to a nearby wall for more safety."I will be right back"________After a brief time in the kitchen, you come back with two cups of tea, each had one spoonful of sugar. The tea did spark some curiosity in the Homunculus but it didn't touch it. Not until you were halfway through yours.The shield is completely gone by now, it morphed into a steady hand holding the cup of tea. You can see the tea slowly dissipating inside of it. "You no answer my ask. Do please. Are you not same? Or are me not same?" >Be honest, explain everything>Only explain its nature as a Homunculus>Make up some lie >exploit the moment, assault it with the closet thing available.
>>2411003>Be honest, explain everything
>>2411003>Only explain its nature as a Homunculus
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>2411006>>2411012
>>2411006>>2411012You hid nothing from it, you can see immense fear erupting in its insides both figuratively and literally. Bloody tears running from her eyes " I....i a lie. I have not purpse...Monsters outside kill me. Papa inside kill me... I have not fate...I...i was born to dead." She slowly slithers away from the wall, you offer zero resistance against this notion. You silently follow her trail. She explores the house stopping on random intervals. She stood still for quite some time at the study room. None had said anything.Your dagger, which was silent this whole time, starts to scream in agony. Strange, it wasn't directed to you at all... It was directed to the Homunculus The Homunculus stops at a single room at the farthest end of the first floor, it has a strong charred iron door with licks black soot it the edges. "I...Pointy no kill me easy. Smash no kill me easy. very hot and very cold can." ah, so this is the furnace room. "Before i become part of mama. Can me ask for wish one? Can my papa give name? C-can...can papa remember name?" >Shove that thing inside the furnace room and be done with it>Name the homunculus
>>2411041>BethI feel bad
>>2411041>Name the homunculusBeth?And the next child that plops out of that woman is gonna be named Beth. Hopefully its a girl lol.
>>2411042 "Thank you. Farewell Papa" Beth positions itself in the middle of the furnace room standing above a large tray meant for such occasion, this should make collecting it remnants much easier.The furnace was already fueled, all you had to do is to light it up and watch Beth slowly melting to nothingness. You feel nothing, it is foolish to invest in these creations. they are nothing but either tools or a walking livestocks to be harvested. There is no need to remind yourself of that. After cooling down, you managed to collect this bubbling red puddle. This Crimson Balm should be sufficient to fully heal Mieglo's corpse. You add a bit of cold water to make it less viscous.Sadly Crimson Balm has a short shelfspan and it only works on the person whose blood is in the mixture. So it is not that useful in the market.Everything is ready, you head upstairs. This shouldn't take too long. You apply the Balm to the wound, it heals right away. As for the blood itself, The Balm has to be directly applied over the heart and so you undress her just enough to expose her chest. There is little time for formalities or courtesies ,The Balm only goes through the skin of its blood owner, like molten butter, it disappears upon contact. You made sure to massage the heart area only; you don't want to have unnecessary new blood in unneeded areas.Then came the final part, inserting her soul back again. With great care, you break the blood circle holding it before slowly returning the soul back to its owner. It is done. Her fingers twitch, a faint breath escapes her lips. She is alive but it will take a while for the soul to un-limbo itself.Exhausted both physically and mentally, you lean on a nearby chair, slowly drifting to sleep.stopping here for now, thanks for playing!
>>2411063Damn, that's sadWell, thank you for running opWhen do you plan to continue?
>>2411069oof well i will probably be busy today and tomorrow but check /qtg/ anon just in case
>>2411073Most complex and detailed ritual I've played in a quest so far.
You wake up with a grumbling from your poor stomach. The study room looks less messy; Mieglo must have cleaned everything. Oh and you are chained by the way. Not by an ordinary chain mind you. This one is Enchanted as well. A Vipera enchantment , at a snail's pace, the chains slowly coil around you. The more you struggle, the more tightened its grip will be. It also rattles as well.Your dagger was no where to be seen yet you can feel this...bond between you two. It is down stairs is some dark confinement. Maybe this is for the best but you can't shake this feeling that is not the right way to do it.The large wooden door slowly opens revealing mieglo in a clean blood-free robe. She looks....shaken with skin paler than your. The woman stroke her non existent wound, you may have left no physical scar but the mental scar will not go away. "I...I don't know what to say....may be i should kill you, may be not." Fragile words escapes her lips.>I should have worn your skin and flesh instead. Ungrateful imbecile.>I understand. You have been through a lot >unshackle me at once>After all of what i have done, THIS is how you repay me??>You should have anticipated this, Not my fault> Ingrate , You should thank me for not putting your soul in some pitiful Homunculus
>>2412540>Serves you right for trying to take advantage of desperate people who lost there memory carrying around a evil mind controlling danger.Probably raped me while I was unconscious
>>2412678I'd be a bit less harsh personally, but I'll support this
>>2412540"You-" she clears her throat "-are no position to speak to me like that. I am the only help you will ever find around. Don't you think i will ever forgive you for Murdering Kotella.""Murdering? hah!" Obviously someone is very delusional."Laugh as much you want, this wont change the fact of your curse. Now, " Her tone changes ", We are falling into a financial problem. The Tax collector will arrive in about 2 weeks and i am missing two pieces of gold and five pieces of silver excluding other finances and what not. The lord of this land is sucking us dry, he is waiting for slightest lapse to confiscate all of our belongings. Also If you don't mind..."An simple copper ring shined in her right hand. In a heartbeat, the chains were gone but once you stand up they materialize once again. "...I'll be keeping this as a fail-safe option. There isn't any record of this Lidgeo circle . We'll have to visit the Libaratanium of Cavon once we are actually financially stable.">Fair enough. >Do you really think this will be enough? I tore through your little cretin like nothing>I can resist its temptations, you can trust me>I will not be leashed like some hound. Unbound now you woman!
>>2412861>So this was how you planned on enslaving me all along.
>>2412861>"You-" she clears her throat "-are no position to speak to me like that.neither were you when I was working to revive you.
>>2412861>Fair enough. Just mention to her that we seem to get a power boost when we turn into a murderhobo.
>>2412861>I think it is high-time you stopped underestimating this curse. So far, you've killed yourself and your homunculous due to your own incompetence. I want to help you, but you need to stop making bad decisions. We need to sort this out NOW.
>>2412968>>2413397>>2413448we will continue properly in 8-10 hoursNew thread Y/N?
>>2413502Sorry, meant that i agree with this
>>2413500>>2413501alright, will do.Also sorry for the fucked up time schedule, my sleeping schedule is equally fucked (haven't slept in ~22 hours). while we are at the butt end of the quest, anything to add/comment on?
>>2413504Maybe try and streamline alchemy so its easier to vote on options. Oh and a character sheet would be helpful.
>>2413505yeah, the mutli diced roll in the first rite was a disaster. i will do something like that with a glossary for these Latin words.also to be clear, We are supposedly a skillful Alchemist. The more rites we achieve, the more we will start to recall some of our memories.
https://pastebin.com/dyX9XAQkglossary, tell m what you think.There will be another for circles, homunculus created , potions/nades/other , enchantments, circles, ingreidents and ye old character sheet.am i missing something?
