"Isn't Yoshka handsome? Do you think some noble girl would fall in love with him?" wrapping myself around the person in question, too close for comfort."Is something wrong, mother?""Everything's alright, mother likes hugs."Marianne coughs, "Well, there's no doubt that your son is handsome but there's something else that'll be concerning if he does attract a noblewoman.""And what's that?""Jealousy. If one woman comes than another will come as well, competition for your son's hand. Though, that's just speculation, nothing set in stone.""I'm not too worried about that. Any woman who tries to catch my son will have to go through a thorough examination," I said, releasing myself from Yoshka. "If they can't stand my heat then they don't pass. I want a good partner for him."Marianne laughs subtlety, "At least don't be hard on a noblewoman, haha""I don't think so~!" making eye contact, but putting my hand under my chin in a thinking gesture, breaking the connection. "However, that's just me talking. I'd love some innocent girl to experience a whole. new. world~""I-I think you should focus on me for that w-world," she says frantically.> "Want to hog all the fun for yourself~?"> "Don't be quick to think, Mistress.

>>2921838> "Want to hog all the fun for yourself~?"

>>2921940Supporting this as well. Since we can segway into it mid teasing.
>>2921940>>2921838I support this
I don't think Fuuma's ready to handle more than one woman. But I get the odd feeling the Marianne would be the type who would like to have more than one lover. Weird.
>>2921940>>2921977>>2922003>>2922010>>2922029I struck Marianne with a hungry smile, pacifying myself a second after, "Well... We'll have to put that topic on the side for now. Where are we going?"Marianne recovers from the stillness I induced; a moment of respite for answering, "The central church of Aliasa. Going to meet Olivia there to straighten out things." She then takes out the paper I gave to her, "And this. If our current development wasn't like this then either me or Illium would've put you in prison by now."> "write-in"
>>2922034I was about to point out our stamina boost, but then I realised that we couldn't emotionally handle it.
>>2922043>"Why do you think I didn't want to bother?"
>>2922043> "write-in"> You could have put me in jail, but I think it'd be really difficult to keep in there. Cutting a deal is the easier path.
>>2922043>> "write-in"You didn't though, but think about the kind of approach you guys did at that time, of course everyone would be doubtful at you. Just to be sure, is there anyone else I should be aware of that is going to be there? For example some guys with some damn skills or high rank troublesome people?
"You could have put me in jail, but I think it'd be really difficult to keep in there. Cutting a deal is the easier path.""I suppose so," sighed Marianne. "Really makes me wonder. What will Olivia think when she hears about this note?""Delighted? One more piece of knowledge is one more step closer to ending this little way, am I wrong?""That does sound good but she is one of the people who interrogated you, to which you withheld information when we ordered to. But what I'm more worried sbout is how you're going to treat her.

>>2922137We must bulli the Marianne
>>2922105Maybe we should have mentioned we weren't exactly maximum cooperative because Palads weren't forthcoming about why they had to arrest me and put me in a dungeon. Couldn't they have invited to us cake and tea somewhere for some questions?
Also a question why did no one say "that's cute" back here >>2922043?>me or Illium would've put you in prison by now.I mean does she not remember her first encounter with us? Or that training fight? We can wipe the floor with her.
>>2922188She assumes we would be as docile as we have demonstrated so far. I don't think she realizes we can use magic to tunnel our way out... unless there are lots of powerful knights that can work together to take us down.
>>2922188Cos that will fucking extend the conversation and is better to move on to a more interesting subject.
>>2922196Or bulli Marriane more
>>2922188I think it's more of a formality rather than an actual attempt at arresting us. Kinda like saying "Usually we just arrest them and put'em in jail.">>2922179There's also the fact that until we knew who our allies are and where we were in the grand scheme of things and getting our bearings, we were running under the belief that everyone high up in the ranks was subverted or a double agent until proven otherwise. That and the whole "bad history with the other five."
>>2922202We arrived in the city after the 3 rd day of arriving in this world or something?
>>2922227We either arrived late or "landed" in the wrong place.
>>2922231We should ask Marianne when the other heroes arrived. It seems they are rather well established compared to us.Or they were just more friendly and open with the authorities than us.
>>2922253We arrived elsewhere, then travelled to this city.
>>2922253>Or they were just more friendly and open with the authorities than us.I highly doubt that.I get the feeling that the other five landed much closer (and dare I say) and on time at whatever prophesied landing point that was written down or spoken of, which is why their names are spoken of so highly in the city. And Yad as a way of saying "get fucked nerds! Your prophecies mean jackshit to me!" separated us from the rest and placed us down elsewhere much later after the supposed point.
>>2922349>>2922253In otherwords, it's a metaway for Yaldabaoth to put his signature on Alia's Hero Prophecy because of both her asking him for help and making light of the irony of how things have been going in her world since the beginning.
>>2922123>>2922125>>2922128>>2922150"I understand my lady. If it's your wish," I said, settling the matter.Until then, we held ourselves inside the carriage, listening the faint clopping noise of the horses. Time flew by as the short distance from Marianne's territory to the capital city was succeeded, a familiar sound of the crowd filling the carriage outside instead.The tour through the lower district ended as we entered the upper one. The same erected statues, buildings, and even the mage's guild being passed by us, the carriage strolling the street and towards the 'central church' to which I never heard of, nor visited.Eventually we reached our destination. Upon stepping outside a grand cathedral met before us, the polished marble reflecting the sunlight, making it glow white. The glass were painted as were the other church's were, depicting things that I could care less about, except for Alia herself. The door was huge, bigger than the last church I visited, opening to a gaping nave; pew over pew were they set, some filled with persons who are bowing their head in prayer.> "Where would Olivia be in this place?"> "This is quite a church, only the ones I've seen in books could only amount to so much."> "Do you know how to navigate this place, Mistress?"> Other?/Write-in
>>2922406>> "Do you know how to navigate this place, Mistress?"Gotta keep the appearance.
>>2922406> "Do you know how to navigate this place, Mistress?"
Ah shit my paranoia is flaring up again.What if the other five are in there with Olivia and the're using her to get to us under the pretense of a simple meeting between the two?
>>2922406>> "Do you know how to navigate this place, Mistress?"
>>2922421Ah, then such a betrayal would be... well, let's just say we will never trust Olivia again.
Fuuma should pray to Alia here. Before or after the meeting.
>>2922406>>2922474>Fuuma should pray to Alia here. Before or after the meeting.This is a good suggestion, supporting.

"The chapel maybe?""You don't know where to go do you, Mistress?""...No. But I trust that I'll find her, come!"Beckoning me, me, Cheru, Yoshka, and Fen followed Marianne who was in disarray, entering upon the hall which exited the main congregation.>Roll 1d100

>>2922502At least spoiler that lewd word this is Goddess Alia's board for fuck sakes.

>>2922508>>2922522(Holy) Lady and (Holy) Knight, it's gotta be chastelewd. It'd be funny if the two were awkward as hell when they have a tender moment.
>>2922486>>2922488>>2922491>69Like a mouse without its nose, Marianne led us here and there. I can't blame her either since this place is practically a small maze. We initially left the nave from the side, heading through a hall that originated from the left wing. Right before the statue of Alia located within an apse, behind a sanctuary.After a long minute or two, perhaps half an hour, Marianne finally locates the chapel. "Ah, there it is! See, didn't take too long," grinning."I must say, Mistress, that your sense of direction contradicts your picture. Anyhow, we did get to where we needed by your words," I replied.Within the chapel, Olivia was up ahead, standing on top of a platform that had another statue of Alia. Before it was a pulpit, looking down on a smaller set of seats in our direction. Olivia was not alone however, for a girl was with her."Is there really nothing else that you don't know about the summoning ritual Olivia?" the girl said, fixing her glasses, her eyes showing a tinge of trouble under her glasses which was very much like mine."I'm sorry, Hana, but that's all I know. Perhaps there's more in the royal library that can tell you more than I can offer."The girl became distraught, but recomposed herself after, "Fine...Could I search the cathedral's library?""As much as you want, it should be farther in the hall."Looking much closer, my squinted eyes cleared the view of the girl besides Olivia. It was Kotomine.Kotomine and I never really interacted with each other much. Only when I needed to turn in my papers that I forgot or something specific like finding someone; the class representative who did her best to function. Unlike Ruiji, nothing sprang from inside me. Just a minor admiration. However, I must be wary, I'm still hiding from them.> Appraise> Let Marianne handle it> Walk up to Olivia> Other?/Write-in

>>2922579Ah but danger sense doesn't reveal who cast the spell, or what direction or what it is.It's warns you but if we play it cool, we might be able to get away with it.But it makes sense, she might just sweep the area with her appraise and accidentally realize that Fen and Cheru is with us.
>>2922579I'm pretty sure that Rushit was the ranged kiter.
Do we know appraisal alerts danger sense? Has that happened before?
>>2922585Yes, it happened with Rushit, this is how we know it can do that.

>>2922570>>2922573>>2922592>>2922605"Olivia, sorry if I came unexpectedly," Marianne says, getting Olivia and Kotomine's attention."Captain Marianne? What are you here for?" Olivia returned.Marianne approached the platform with us behind her, joining the priestess as we've interrupted the conversation. "There's something I needed to talk about. I was hoping that we would have the time but it seems the hero Hana beat me to you.""I'm sorry of I stand between you two," Kotomine said, bowing. "I'm Hana Kotomine, it's nice to meet you.""I'm Marianne de Legoune, a captain of the Palad Order. It's nice to meet you too."After introducing herself Marianne batted an eye to me and my company, checking my current state. I gave an okay, shaking my hide slightly.> Appraise> Continue to stay quiet> Talk (to whom?)> Other?/Write-in

Kotomine bows again, walking down the small steps of the platform and moving into hall."What were you talking about?" asked Marianne."The hero Hana has been studying the summoning ritual that the palace had used. She says that she wants to find a way back to her original world," answered Olivia. "Now what is it that you've come to see me for? And who are these people as well?"> "You don't recognize me?"> "Mistress, are you interested in a partner~?"> "I lost my mask because of Ruiji. Do I look that different?"> Other?/Write-in

>>2922668> "You don't recognize me?"> "I lost my mask because of Ruiji. Do I look that different?"Eh, let's go with both.
You know, if they give us shit for not revealing everything we know and hiding ourselves. We could enlighten them on how the 6 heroes were chosen.Basically their spell encouraged the mass murder of our classmates since most of them weren't lucky enough to endure the 'empowering' stage of the selection to help their world and Goddess.That's why there's so few of us were summoned in their fancy summoning spell.Is it any wonder why were a little reluctant to tell people everything?
Also, let's create telescope and use it to zoom in on the heroes from a distance to appraise them. They can sense us appraising if they have dangersense but that doesn't mean they can figure out where we are or how we're doing it.
>>2922668>>2922689+1Let's not do >>2922683 and say we didn't.
>>2922708The only hole I want to poke into that idea is that most of the time we end up running into them by pure chance, otherwise we usually don't see them most of the time. So unless we act like a complete stalker (which can potentially be detected by Danger Sense due to the intent of the stalking going from just watching to threatening because of our history with them) and find out their regular patterns, we're not going to get very far with the telescopic idea.It's still good regardless since it is a telescope afterall. Just not useful to our situation at the moment.
>>2922668>I lost my mask because of Ruiji. Do I look that different?"
>Do I look that different? No. You just never bothered to really look past your own world. A pity, since you were one of the few decent ones.
>>2922668> "I lost my mask because of Ruiji. Do I look that different?"
>>2922860This woman has never seen our face dude, this is the priestess we're addressing, not the hero.That said, good lord, are we that poorly known?
>>2922668> "I lost my mask because of Ruiji. Do I look that different?">>2922669This. We should really start codifying our look so we can actually make a consistent and effective design.
>>2922860This line makes no sense. We're disguised as Lana currently, someone she has never seen.>>2923025Nah, she saw our face during that interrogation didn't she? Not to mention the whole thing with the bunny girl.
>>2923025She saw us when we are half naked
>>2923028>she saw our face during that interrogation didn't she?She didn't. >>2923069 Correct, was a momentary time. >>2922668>> "You don't recognize me?">> "I lost my mask because of Ruiji. Do I look that different?"

I lost my mask because of Ruiji," I clarified."Mask?" Olivia mumbled. "Is this perhaps Fuuma, Marianne?""She goes by Lana now and yes, it is. Right now she's servicing as my maid under a new name," Marianne answered. "A lot different when she isn't wearing that pelt and deer skull.""So you've changed your name," Olivia addressed me.I gave a curtsy, "Yes, High Priestess, I do wish for you to call me by it.""Then who are they?" turning her head slightly to my children. "That bunny girl is among them but I never met those two.""Those are my children, High Priestess. The one is Fen and the other is Yoshka, you've never met them before. Well, never directly."Fen and Yoshka came beside, Cheru following them. They then all did a bow or curtsy like me, introducing themselves."I am Yoshka, pleased to make your acquaintance.""Fen, what brother sai-- Ouch!" peeped Fen. Yoshka elbowed her side for a more sophisticated introduction. "...I'm Fen, pleased to make your acquaintance as well," saying with a bleak tone.Olivia looked shocked, "These are your...children?""That's right," I said without breaking face.Putting a hand on her head and taking a few steps back, she narrowed her eyes to the four of us. Cheru was hiding behind me, presumably because of her past experience with her; although, she didn't react much when Oliva, Marianne, and Illium saw me naked."M-Moving on. What was it that you needed me to talk about?" disregarding the ache in her head as she tried to make clear of my "offspring"."This here Lana gave me a note with something that you and the order may need to see. It's about the demon king's generals," Marianne explained."The demon general's? What about them?""Apparently, Titania is one of them. The army, Royal, and Palad Order doesn't know about this. It's been speculated because of recent attitude to the human kingdoms but now things are clear. There's also some unsavory information about the hero Kita," explained the knight, lowering her tone of voice at the last sentence.Olivia returned to me again, "You didn't tell us this.""I didn't because of the circumstance at the time. In all honesty, I was ready to fight you.""I...That doesn't matter now. What matters is that we now have a clear picture to why the elven kingdom has been acting up. Marianne, mind if I take possession of that note?""Sure, just don't get too loud about it," giving Olivia the paper."I'll be careful. Thank you for telling me this.">(cont.)
>>2923221Giving her regards, we all stepped down the platform, snaking our way through the small set of pews before entering into the hall. Looking down, there was library that was barely visible at the end of the hall, located at the next turn. Olivia was reading the paper I wrote intently under the statue of the goddess of light, the figure making it out to be a motherly woman. In reality, Alia was of a child's appearance with a motherly nature. Thinking back on it, didn't she say that she had sisters? The orc said that the goddess of dark or whatever was one.> "Could I check out the library, Mistress?"> "Could I go pray at the alter, Mistress?"> Continue on to the carriage> Other?/Write-in

>>2923225> "Could I go pray at the alter, Mistress?"Okay,we are almost out of the danger,just make Alia tamper with their skills so they meet her or send them a message.This is the moment to be serious.No /u/ teasing and no screwing around,seriousness.>inb4 Alia hates us for teasing the priest
>>2923298Wut? You want the goddess to do what to their skills?
>>2923225>"Could I go pray at the alter, Mistress?">"if you still need anything from me say it now. I'm very... 'devoted' to my prayers"Praise be to the light.
>>2923225>> "Could I go pray at the alter, Mistress?"
>>2923443Maybe I didn't express myself properly.I mean like what she did to Fuuma with her stealing skill when she tried to upgrade and it didn't work.If they see their menu doing weird shit they might be more interested in discovering what's going on.I don't mean for anything detrimental to happen but if their menus act kinda wonky or something when they receive the message they'll want to see what's happening.Again the sooner this problem reaches a beneficial soultion the better. Hell maybe they can also get upgrades after Yabadabadoo half-assed the whole summoning proccess.
>>2923526Ah i see. Maybe. I kinda assumed that only our gal was eligable for an upgrade but who knows
>>2923533>>2923298I want the goddess to be in our harem.
>>2923536I dont even want a harem lol.. But im not greatly opposed to it, so I dont mind if that's where it goes
>>2923526>wanting rushit and fuckfriends to get upgradesno.
>>2923652Agreed...maybe Homura but no
>>2923652The goddess wants the demon lord dealt with,if Yaldy's problem is present in all of them she's gonna deal with it but hopefully this is after they are willing to work with Fuuma.Besides,she's a goddess of Light,maybe she changes slageguy's power into some poder of bonds/friendship kinda deal(lol).Alia explaining the summoning proccess may even work as a wake up call for him,but it may badly affect the two hero wannabes.Probably being to optimistic here though.Point is,if they can get upgrades they are getting them at some point down the line,whether we want to or not.
>>2923755It's great to have optimism.But why is it that she contacted us and our shit got changed to something ultra fancy named. And Rushit's power is still named [Slave Seal]? Unless Alia gave him [Empowering Connection], but if that's the case then why doesn't he have [Divine Child of the Scales] like we do after our first meeting with her?There's too many questions to assume too much of without going to Deity Alia and asking her.

"I'll be waiting outside, don't stay for long," leaving us.Departing form each other I go my separate way to the altar, placed and centered within the apse as the windows shine their light upon the stone statue. Kneeling on both knees and clasping my hands together in prayer, I make the connection, or try to.The same sensation overcame my body as I stayed idle, the feel of light clouds under myself and a voice calling to me."It's been a while has it?"Opening my eyes I look to the same goddess as before, a childish figure with a voice of radiance."Yeah, it's been a while. A lot of things happened.""I know some things that has gone on but not all of it. But I do know that you've clashed with Ruiji.">"Write-in"

"For starters, your friends has been here for a few weeks or so - a month really. Yaldabaoth was sloppy when he sent you all to my world, Legilia. Summoning and sending people requires some calculation but it isn't hard for us gods since, of course, we're gods."Sitting on the ground, my legs were comforted by the fluffiness of the clouds, "What is your thoughts about Ruiji's...slave magic?"Alia looks up with a wondering eye before telling me, "It's certainly something to be afraid of and to despise..." taking another moment to think, "But...I'm fine with it. A little. I can't force Ruiji to restrain from using that sort of magic because it's something brought form his soul, and he's free to do what he wants; a person who was sent to help me too in fact. However, I draw the line if he go around enslaving anyone on a whim."Doubt was cast upon me, to which Alia continued her train of thought."My sisters talked about Ruiji and the possible danger he can bring, but there's also the other heroes who are equally as dangerous. I don't like to persecute someone because they're different; Ruiji is now a person of my world who's supporting me along with the rest, including you Fuuma.">"Write-in"
>>2924891But the thing is, i know Ryuji in my world. He may be not a bad guy but to say that my classmates are....died i can't..>Maybe shed a tear
>>2924891>"I know that you want to think highly of us, but what happens if he does come after me or my family? Because the last time we met he seemed damned intent on killing me at firsthand then threatening me with slavery when I wouldn't answer his interrogation right away, he didn't even know I was one of the chosen until after he took the mask off and when he did, he went back to attacking me and then attempted to talk me into joining them under which I assume is threat of death. What happens if he tries again? Am I supposed to roll over and take it? Am I supposed to live with the fact that my children might be killed by them not because they're a threat but because they're too different in their eyes?"
>>2924891>I can't force Ruiji to restrain from using that sort of magic because it's something brought form his soul,Wow. So at the core of his being he is literally a slaver and we are a thief. Surprisingly I think we come out of this on the moral high ground.>However, I draw the line if he go around enslaving anyone on a whim."Didn't he threaten to enslave us if we failed to answer his questions? I mean shit I know it ain't exactly on a whim but resorting to that straight away is still funky.>>2924924Yeah this. To be fair though, I think our children are safe.
>>2924939>So at the core of his being he is literally a slaver and we are a thief.I legit think she's trying to comprehend what we are and is making guesswork as everyone else. Because Yad gave us three choices at the beginning of this quest to pick one of at the start.>Didn't he threaten to enslave us if we failed to answer his questions?Yes he did, and he sic'd his elf slave on us via [Spirit Tracking] and attempting a stealth shot on us while we were not even being aggressive and finding a place away from everyone so they would not get hurtAlso never underestimate someone who will do anything to get what they want. I mean heck, look at every player discussion since the beginning of this quest.
>>2924962>Also never underestimate someone who will do anything to get what they want. True but even he has to have some standards to uphold to himself.>I mean heck, look at every player discussion since the beginning of this quest.Trust me. 4chan has it's limits for what it will do. I've seen them reached.
>>2924968>True but even he has to have some standards to uphold to himself.I've yet to seem these standards both in character and out of character.
>>2924976I suppose though to be fair we've interacted fairly little with him.
>>2924976>>2924968Also I really need to post slower when time is not on the line. >>2924993It is fair, just as it is fair to say that whether or not our reasons were moral in not Appraising Kotomine, we also did not directly attack her right off the bat and thought very highly of her because of Fuuma's past life experiences with her, and from what Olivia has mentioned to us, that has not changed for the worst in any stretch of the imagination in comparison to Ruiji.
>>2925004>Also I really need to post slower when time is not on the line. Eh, no reason not to post fast.>It is fair, True. Honestly so long as the heroes leave us be, we can leave their management to the kingdom while we take care of problems.

Because the last time we met he seemed damned intent on killing me at firsthand then threatening me with slavery when I wouldn't answer his interrogation right away," getting more irate but calming myself with a deep breath. "He didn't even know I was one of the chosen until after he took the mask off and when he did, he went back to attacking me and then attempted to talk me into joining them under which I assume is a threat.

"Have you ever considered someone else of the five that's not Ruiji? I'm alarmed as well to hear this and I understand how you're feeling right now, I just want you to think of any alternatives." The goddess then holds her head in the air; a gesture of thinking, "My oh my, I really need to keep an eye on all of you...I wish I could intervene whenever I want."> "How can I trust the other four to be different?"> "But Ruiji might come after me or my family behind my back!"> "..."> Other?/Write-in

>>2925040Also QM I would like it to be let known that the intent behind my post >>2925053 is not so much accusatory as it is ruminating on how many times Alia had to say no because of some clause or general belief she held or was being potentially held to.

They know that they might not be able to defeat him right away so they've decided to take on step at a time.""At least they have some plan than just going head on..." I muttered. "About Kotomine, I've met her before coming to you. She seemed intent on wanting to go home. Made me wonder if she ever came to you more than just the initial meeting, and what do you mean by wishing you could intervene? Is the power of being a main god holding you here?""No, there's isn't anything that binds me to the godly realm. It's my sisters; you see, I may be a head god but I'm not necessarily the strongest, that title goes to Gratia. With the exception of my other sister, Vamia, Gratia and Kordia don't like it when either of us mess up the mortal plane," Alia then looks around her to see if anyone's watching and or hearing like how a child does. "As for Kotomine, she isn't able to communicate with me like how you do, so does the other four. Yaldabaoth didn't discern your current situation back when you were in his world. Yes, the most of you wants to stay here in varying degrees but Kotomine seems intent on going back to your Earth.

That and I want to know what the other gods are like.

"To fix this, I usually create a couple of 'heroes' myself. It's been working for a couple millenniums but this time around I couldn't use a person from my world because the current demon king is too powerful, so I resorted on calling in a favor. Vamia isn't evil, being the youngest of all of us she's just easily irked."So all this terror is generated from a temper tantrum from a goddess? From everything I heard, I expected Vamia to be an ultimate evil but Alia's acting as if it's normal, though apologetic.> "Thanks for listening to me.

>>2925211> "Thanks for listening to me. I gotta go."Once again i'd like to bring up: i dont think Ruiji is as bad of a guy as some may think. The Elf attack spell? Probably wasnt lethal, or he knew we would survive it. And enslaving Fuuma to ger answers? Could really just have meant to "enslave, get answers, release slavebinding". Heck, in his shoes wouldnt most ppl do the same, dealing with a suspicious and unknown threat.And again, I really want Fuuma to hate the guy. But ooc, i think it's important we dont assume too much
>>2925338>i think its really Fuuma is being Fuuma>enslavement and our hex of obediance isnt that different?
>>2925338>The Elf attack spell? Probably wasnt lethal or he knew we would survive it.>wasnt lethal>he knew we would survive it.Rushit didn't know jackfuck about us UNTIL HE TOOK OFF OUR MASK. As far as he should have been concerned we were either a chucklefuck with an item that blocked stats and didn't know about it OR a random civilian that got set up.For fuck's sake, this is getting retarded. This is honestly getting even more stupid than me putting up paranoia posts about the others besides Rushit being against us or just regular shitposting because there has been clear evidence that normal adventurers and civies have very low stats in comparison to us and the other five and yet the son of a bitch decides to straight up attack us via his elf.>Heck, in his shoes wouldnt most ppl do the same, dealing with a suspicious and unknown threat.Yeah the guards sure attacked us right away, the people at the demi-human village sure attacked us right away. Most people don't do that shit, it has been proven in both the quest and the side stories that Rushit doesn't act like most people.Yes I mad bro.
>>2925405It's just wishful thinking at this point that we won't have to fight him at some point.It's obvious he's an asshole and an idiot, and that Fuuma hates him enough and/or wants to be away from her classmates enough that she's not going to want to do any sort of parley with the group as whole.I as a player would prefer the option with less potential murder of a non-evil person, but our character has certain circumstances, etc.
>>2925429Then stick with saying that you don't want to fight him and just keep to doing our own thing while they do their thing in fighting the Demon King and neither side screws with the other's cereal bowl, that's perfectly fine and understandable, it's something I can support wholeheartedly.What really sticks a 460mm cannon shell up my ass is people insisting that Rushit is a gud boy who wouldn't hurt a fly when the reality of it all contradicts what they are saying.
Side-StorySakata Shirumo's POVDarkness with an orange hue lighting the car. Here, the screams of my classmates resounded like a buzzing insect against my ears, the fire growing larger and larger while I was stuck under the debris. My legs were broken, my torso trapped under scraps of metal that once made the ceiling of the train. It was painful, blood spilling from me as I was pierced, the fire slowly approaching me. Right then and there, my life flashed before me within seconds. My mistakes, regrets, and my achievement to which there weren't many.I was a bad person, easily making things harder for people. I don't know how, it's just how things were. My appearance was of a delinquent: menacing smile, fierce eyes, unkept hair and scars due to countless fights. It was like I was made for that sort of thing. What's worse is how socially inept I am with people, especially the girl I was staring at in front of me.My family was average. A working and proud father, a loving mother, and a few sisters that were hard to understand sometimes. I was an outlier though, couldn't go a day without fighting someone, eventually creating my current nasty reputation. But there was this girl that seemed to be in the same boat as me. Well, I believed so.The girl sat at the back of the class most of the time, always quiet with a gloomy atmosphere around her. No one really payed much attention to her and so did she to them, that is a few glances from time to time. Always looked tired too, with bags under her eyes most days, her head nodding to sleep while trying to stay awake for class. I thought to maker her my friends but in the end I fucked things up.At first I asked around about her - really creepy now that I think about it - and gathered what little everyone knows about her. Fuuma Nagaro, age 16, average household like myself, haven't said a word since the school-year; a peculiar person. Things got out of hand though as rumors spread about her and me, something about Nagaro owing me something because I kept asking about her. I tried to clear things up but things escalated, the principle coming into question and calling her on multiple occasions.After that, I decided not to worsen things and directly talk to her myself, apologize too about the mishap. That didn't go too well either...The delinquents caught wind of my interest and started to harass her, trashing her stuff and whatnot. I did the best thing I can do and that was to fight - knocked them near to death too but the damage was done. Nagaro kinda just receded to herself, going darker than usual. After that I stopped interacting with her as well since I'm a coward. Even had my two sisters give me some pointers to talk with Nagaro.>(cont.)
>>2925444Im not saying he's a 100 % good guy, im saying i dont see evidence that he's a 100 % douche >>2925460Man, poor guy..
>>2925460That's why it was a surprise that she came to this field trip, taking a seat across my aisle. Throughout the short ride she'd just look outside the window while the train zoomed by, as if no one existed. Crossing her arms, boredom overtaking her.Now I'm here, lying on the ground while bleeding to death if not the fire that slowly grows in size. I called for help, looking at Nagaro but she just stared at me with dead eyes as if she was already dead. I couldn't do anything else than whimper, anticipating my end, fearing the searing pain that eventually engulfed me in the end. I'm sorry for everything I did, I tried my best. Even the smallest amount of forgiveness could put me to rest. Though, I don't expect you to because you clearly hate me for what I did.And at that moment, when the fire was about the consume us both, I heard the faintest voice from Nagaro."It's unfair..."............"Ugh," I groaned, holding my head. "W-Where am I?""Hmm? Another one?"
>>2925216>>2925219"Do you recommend anything to deal with my former classmates peacefully?""How about trying to contact one of them that you trust? Kotomine seems good since you see her in a better light than Ruiji. Remember, don't just fire a spell because you hate them, okay?""I'll...think about that."Alia gets up from her cloud and walks to me, putting both of her hands beside her, "O-kay?""Y-Yes, I'll at least try to control myself.""Good! I think it's time for us to depart. Hope we see each other again," she said in a smile. "If you do somehow meet Vamia, don't be too hard on her.""Good-bye, I treat children gently, don't worry."The world fades like a fog, my sense of place changing back to where I was. Opening my eyes I was met with the same statue, myself still prostrated. Yoshka, Fen, and Cheru were sitting in the pews behind me, watching as I got up from the floor and returned to them. As always, with a pip in her step, Cheru came to me first."Why did mommy stay like that?" Cheru asked.> "We've got to give Alia our prayers so she can bless us."> "Mommy has a deep connection with the goddess."> "I was talking to a friend."> Other?/Write-in

"But Cheru didn't see anyone by mommy."Putting a hand over my mouth I giggled, "Alia is a very special person, dear. Now it's time to go, Mistress is waiting for us."Rounding them up I led the way out of the cathedral, Marianne waiting by the carriage. Seeing us she started to go inside, leaving the door open for us to enter as well. With everyone here, Marianne then told us where we're going next."We're going to a cave whose mouth opens in the Jakia plains next.""Why so?""Monsters has been infesting that cave for a long time. Now that my previous job has been completed I'll have to help out in pest extermination. Hopefully it'll be done by today or so," Marianne added.

They're bigger than child most of the time and the more powerful ones may be bigger than a man," telling of the varying sizes of these monsters. "One crew got killed because a few sandsprites ambushed them.""Sandsprites?""They look like ants but their bodies are very bulky. To catch prey they dig under the ground and wait until their antennae senses something.

They do eat whatever they get their mandibles on, forcing us to keep supplies outside."I shiver, depicting a massive roach while a crawling sound ran through my head. Collecting myself, I moved on, "About the sandsprites, can they differentiate between living beings and objects? If not, a few bigger stones might be nice to have to bait them out of the ground," I advised."The antennae senses the mana inside a being. A rock may work but not all the time," Marianne corrected. "Traders and merchants have been getting into trouble because of the recent cave infestation.

>>2926195>>2926197>>2926217"How big is the cave? It must be gigantic if such insects could live there.""From what we've gathered from exploring, the cave is gigantic. Winding tunnels, some underground springs, and caverns. It's treacherous every step of the way because how much these monsters use the environment to their advantage.""Is there any information about their abilities? Camouflage and stuff like that?"Marianne leans back into her seat, "From what I heard, the insects there are very good at blending into the environment. If one doesn't hide then it's usually an aggressive hunter that goes out in the open to hunt. The deeper the soldiers go into the cave the more dangerous it becomes."Peering out of the window, Cheru and Fen observes the dirt road. Wagons, and some other carriages that held an esteemed look like ours went their opposite way while we head into the plains. A small village could be seen in the distance, a stream passing by it giving a reliable waster source to the residents that live outside the capital. It soon faded into the distance as the carriage doesn't stop to view the sight.I stretch my back within the space, admiring the outside, "The plains are beautiful."Marianne agreed, "The grass shows a relaxing picture once you see the wind blowing across it...You know, when I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a princess strangely enough. That's but a memory now to look back on. What did you dream to be when you were a child?"> "...I didn't have one."> "Write-in"

>>2926562>>2926595>>2926661Positioning myself back against the window again, I filled my vision of the green plains that speedily passed by, seemingly never-ending; a sea of grass that looks like you can sink yourself with one heavy step. I thought deeply of Marianne's inquiry, pulling myself into a blank expression."...I didn't have one. What you can see me now is all I have of a dream.""Nothing?" Marianne questioned. "The time of a child is full of innocence and naivete', you got to have something if not one little anecdote.">"Write-in"

Yoshka, who was also listening to my small dialogue, scratched the back of his head nervously as he's the person I spent the longest with; remembering the time I first told him that I was from another world. The forest I first met him now but a memory."It's been on my mind for a long time ever since I learned that you were of the six heroes that were summoned. Why are you so different?

>>2927356Yoshka, Fenrir and Cheru are my family, my REAL family... They are the only ones I have ever been really close with. And you of course, mistress. My relationship with the heroes is one of a disconnected past.
>>2927375Forgot to greentext this
>>2927356>>2927375Supporting.Even if Kotomine ain't a bad girl, in our past she didn't help us too.
>>2927389I'm perfectly fine with it, since us saying she's alright can be our way of calming Marianne doubts about us not being able to being friendly with any of them. While still keeping our personal opinion locked away from prying eyes.
I just thought about something really nasty. We can enter the den and sealed with our earth magic (mud or a golem) then use create poison, the same with the orc or better, hopefully like smoke and just walk in killing everything just by walking through.
>>2927487Now you're thinking with magic!
>>2927487You're right. Gas the bugs.
>>2927487True, I mean if we do that we could also consider creating a poisonous gas, given our immunity to poison, and literally WW 1'ing the entire cave.On a separate point, oh sweet god how do all my CK 2 characters in this one family not fuck. I mean seriously the last 3 rulers of my nation have all been cousins and I'm down to my last male who has had a single daughter in more than 11 years of marriage on a god damn fertility boosting focus.
>>2927494>>2927498>>2927510And we have all the counter-measures, [Abaddon Troops], [Air Walker], [Light Creation] [Heal II] [Purify II] [Faint Barrier I] and we can use [Marking Hex] and [Runecraft I] to finish the touch.
>>2927523Yeah. Not to mention all of our ranged magic attacks we can rely on should any insects prove resilient to poison.
>>2927528>>2927523I think the only real weakness that we have so far for combat is that we have no properly strong protection from ranged attacks like opposing magic spells and arrows. Once we take care of that we're pretty much ready to go.
>>2927555Totally solved with hex and rune [Anti-projectile]
>>2927566Well I can say I approve of the double layer usage for projectile defense Anon.
>>2927566>>2927568Not to mention we can probably learn something in light or air magic.Finally, after seducing 3 women, my entire life trying and spending more than 100 gold in gifts I've managed to get a son. Fucking RNG.
>>2927579Yeah that was my theory too since there seems to be defensive spells in Light magic and general agility based magic in Air.Congrats Anon, smoke a cigar for the birth of your new son and pat yourself on the back.
>>2927586Yeah probably.Nope, turns out since he is a bastard, even though I recognised him, I can't use him as a heir.
>>2927360>>2927365>>2927374"Kotomine's alright in my book. The remaining three needs more time before I get a lasting impression, not that I didn't have one before. And provided they don't attempt to pressgang me of course.""Eheh, what did you mean by that last part?" Marianne said weakly."Take it as you will, Mistress, I'll let your mind wander the possiblity."The coachman soon opened the door for us, presenting a cave that was on the side of a huge hill. Walking closer, there was a camp that had a flag raised up high, knights coming in and out of tents and canopies along with boxes that were stacked over each other. Marianne went into the front and assumed the the role of the master with her servants following behind her. The knights instantly saluted Marianne, letting her pass without resistance."C-Captain Legoune! Do excuse me but weren't you suppose to come here five days later?" confronting us from out of a big tent and saluting."I finished things faster than expected. Are you the man in charge?" towering over the knight."Yes, sir!""How are things going?""Smoothly, sir! Up until recently, everything has been under control. A few monsters sneaked through the guards a few times it was taken care of. No casualties."Marianne picked her head up from the knight and looked beyond the cave which was vast, the thick darkness only being held at bay with a vast amount of torches that went deeper inside. "Any peculiarities? Discoveries?""The cave has a vast system within it, sir. Clean underwater springs, a few deposits, and a shrine."Marianne lifts an eyebrow, "A shrine?""Yes, sir, it was found in a passageway that looked man-made. We don't know what kind of shrine it's suppose to be to but the priest speculate that it's pagan."Marianne tilts her head, closing her eyes to think before looking at us, "have any ideas to get rid of the bugs? That shrine sounds awfully interesting.">"I can summon troops to clear out the caverns.">"Ever thought of blowing up the insects, Mistress?">"The insects can be handle with us four, Mistress, including you. Do you want to take the lead still?">"I can poison the cave but I don't know when the poison will subside.">Other/Write-in

>>2927616Good lord our choice of magic really does paint us as a bad guy.
>>2927630I mean it kinda does but to be fair it's not like we should expect any different from something literally called Dark magic.
>>2927630We may be the bad guy, but we're the GOOD GUY'S BAD GUY!Also, who says we can't use our "evil" powers for good? Like creating a type of easily disposable non-lethal to bigger beings poison gas that acts like a form of Bug-B-Gone.Or use our hexes to give skills to adventurers that want an edge in the field for simple coin.
>>2927647>Also, who says we can't use our "evil" powers for good? Like creating a type of easily disposable non-lethal to bigger beings poison gas that acts like a form of Bug-B-Gone.Stop, that is how you end up with DDT kiling birds.
>>2927662I can't stop, now I wanna see if an overcharged corrupted Heal spell from the Light Magic Tree causes cancer.
>>2927667Look if we are going full mad magic we've clearly got to figure out if people can hold onto our feet when we walk through the air without it effecting us.What if we can just have a giant chain of people hanging off us as we march along above the enemy army? Heck, what if we can carry a ship while doing it? We'd be like a war elephant!
>>2927680Or just skip the middle man, create Gravity magic and just upgrade a ship with Gravity and Air magic.
>>2927683If we can do that, then I'm advising Bomber Harris tactics from here on out. In combination with Cobra style airborne abyssal troop assaults conducted from our totally not evil sky fortress.
>>2927605>>2927613>>2927616"I can poison the cave and seal it to kill any initial encounters. Or I can bring in troops of my own, using their corpses as meatshields. Ultimately, Mistress, it's your choice," I suggested, giving out an array of options to kill.Marianne gave me a face of bewilderment, turning back to the knight."Are there people down there currently?""No, sir! The squads that were sent has come back before you arrived," the knight reported.Marianne then turns to me again, "...Poison them. Insects are outside the bounds of international law.""With pleasure, Mistress~!">Roll 1d100

>>2927745>>2927756The cave is deep, if we're lucky she may be deep there OR underwater.
You know what I find interesting about all the people we've recruited? They all more or less follow the same pattern of "Shit or incredibly mundane life where they won't amount to anything on their own" and a incredibly powerful being comes into their lives and changes it either for the better or for the odd.It reminds me of Yuuma and Yadbaloth's interaction in a fashion. It's nothing concrete, just something that popped out to me that I found funny.
>>2927700>>2927704>>2927741>100__________Spell leveled![Poison Creation II] >>> [Poison Creation III]Spell maxed!__________Standing right in front of the entrance of the cave I started to generate a black miasma that grew into a thick, poisonous fog that swept into the wide tunnels. Quickly, I sealed the whole opening with [Clay Earth], trapping the poison and whatever there is beyond that. After a few minutes I unsealed the cave, monstrous insects piling the ground once it came into light."All done, Mistress~!" I said with glee, severely out of place because of what I did. "The poison should've gone far into the cavern so it'll be safe until we reach the lower levels.""That fast!" Marianne exclaimed, observing the mass genocide of bugs. "W-Wait! There's even some ulips!"> "What's a ulip, Mistress?"> Proceed to make undead> Call in [Abaddon Troops]> Other/Write-inHitler eat your heart out.

Also, shouldn't we have gotten XP for that? Or did that automatically get consumed to level up the spell?
>>2927831Usually we get that after the event, so probably after we left the cave
>>2927840Also, if it has so many monster, we can expect a lot more than the orcs in experience, probably.
>>2927857It probably wouldn't hurt to wait and see on that one.

After that, they die after producing eggs, the mana being used in the process," Marianne says, inspecting the corpses too. "Ulips are masters of camouflage, their wings closely resembling real-life rocks that cover their whole entire body. It takes a very trained eye or a magic item to catch one.""Mhmm, that sounds good, Mistress," disregarding what she said, casting [Greater Reanimate] and [Abaddon Troops].>Roll 1d100+20I always forget to add the exp points.

>>2927905You're doing good Anon. Just don't get cocky.
Also I was looking at our inventory:>Explosive mini-golems x5The hell are these?
>>2927912Those were things we made back after we genocided the fuck out of the Orcs and freed the Rapeslaves.
>>2927913Oh. I don't remember them being explosive, I thought they were just some rock golems.
>>2927908This is my karma for today, amazon sent me the wrong shit so I get some good-ass rolls.
>>2927912Ah, that was my idea, make some golem with an explosive hex to kill people unknowing.
>>2927883>>2927885>>2927888>117 (97)While Marianne commanded a few knights to harvest the bodies of the ulips, I waited until they were done, resuming the mana projection.Emanating from nowhere, I guided the black mist into the countless insect corpses. They started to twitch, their muscle reflexes becoming more complete than just a dead reaction. First, one or two started to get up, their carapaces stained black. Then a few more came to life, and then another, and then another. Within a short amount of time an army was at my beckon. To bolster my created forces more, I brought in a sizeable number of abaddon troops, commanding them and the insects to line in formation with the insects forming the front.Marianne was speechless, gazing upon my army.>"Shall we start going, Mistress?">"What do you think? I could throw a few golems in there as well.">"With this, we will run over any other monster. Is this pleasing, Mistress?">Other/Write-in

>>2927981To be fair two of our kids knew we were some sort of god compared to them.
>>2927982>>2927981That and they've already seen us controlling undead and torturing an orc in the past.Now Cheru will most likely be a bit spooked at all the DARK magic that is being used so we might have to comfort her.
>>2927982And the last follow us blinded.
>>2927937>>2927955>>2927981"What do you think? I could throw a few golems in there as well.""Uh...That's fine, this is more than enough," her eyes still attached to the spectacle. "I know how powerful you are but this is beyond human."Yoshka, Fen, and Cheru came to my side, inspecting the undead insects and abaddon soldiers for themselves. Yoshka and Fen explored the lines freely but Cheru was hesitant to check them our herself, clinging to me. She didn't tremble or show any hints of fear but merely peeked behind my legs in slight nervousness."Mommy, what are they? Why does older sister and older brother go in?">"They're mommy's helpers, dear. They won't hurt you.">"Your brother and sister is familiar with mommy's helpers.

I said to Marianne."Whenever your ready," Marianne says, slowly approaching behind the massive unit. "These undead bugs sure are quite the work.""My specialty, Mistress.

>>2928236Not a problem Anon, I remembered back when we first got in contact with them that we wanted to appraise them the next time we summoned them.
Also we should clearly make a pair of gloves with explosive / force + fire runes on the knuckles so we can perform explosive punches.
>>2928302Better make sure that those gloves don't also blow our own limbs off from just using them.
>>2928307True but given we can levitate, force nullification is clearly something possible. Of course this does rather interestingly raise the point that if you enchant a set of armour to not move when hit, you could make all attacks relying on kinetic or even thermal energy entirely useless.

>>2928325>>2928326>>2928328It appears that this is the dice's way of telling us it's only a game and to not take it so seriously.
Man these rolls are a rollercoaster.
>>2928709It's a breath of fresh air, that's for certain.
You know guys? We do have a hex of danger sense, now I think it's going to be nice do one for mana perception and imbued it into our eyes so we somehow shape our pupils we a nice design. Also engtave a rune in our if necessary into the glasses so people qho see through them for the reverse they will see normal eyes.
>>2928868Why not imbue it into our skull? That way if we lose our eyesight we won't lose the mana perception.
>>2928325>>2928328>>2928326I just woke up and I can't stop laughing! The dice gods sure are frisky with us today
>>2928875Now, anon that's certainly better, but I kinda want to give us more style, I did modify pic related for example.
>>2928317Btw, QM, we still have in our inventory <Prey's guise> even though we lose it. Also a question about our glasses, it is say that has <Innate [Appraise]> it always activated? I mean, it¿s say "innate." If is so then we actually appraised Kotomine.
>>2929184We don't have it in our inventory, it's listed under the magic items but not in our inventory.
>>2929184>>2929214We could probably use our map to find it.
>>2929264To my understanding it was damaged / lost when we fought Ruji. So chances are that wouldn't help.Though again, I've pointed out we can just magic up a brand new one with more enchantments.
GODDAMIT GUYS*facepalm*we need to make absolutely everyone sign a non-disclosure form. Summon massive army and plague generator? The other heroes are on to us ASAP
I can't believe we freely gave out items that block out appraisal. What happens if Ryuji or someone else steals one from the helpless maids. It would serverly limit our ability to steal skills against such opponents. An ownership or self destruct clause should as a failsafe.
>>2929409I thought it was just that the rings themselves couldn't be appraised accurately, and blocked slave magic?
>>2928325>>2928326>>2928328>99Once we've reached the deeper levels of the cave, monsters came to our confrontation, falling one after another as the undead insects swarmed their bodies like a hive mind and tore it to pieces. The abaddon troops were the main force of power as they went up against monsters that were too powerful for the beetles, easily killing them as well. Marianne seemingly got used to them, still all weird about the minions I've spawned but general cool about it. She has already lost her purity as a knight of the church and kingdom, why would this upset her?Without notice, we were deep enough to find an underground spring in the cave, the one of which the knight told us about. Cheru wanted to look at it, telling me to get closer. The water was clear, able to see all the way down to the bottom. I've heard of underground water and how it works from school but it looks more magical like how this world is.Moving on, we departed from the spring and towards the shrine that Marianne was interested about. The monsters now began to get bigger in either size of number, but still weak against mine.After fighting another nest, Marianne tapped me on the shoulder, "What is those daemon's? They don't look like anything that I have encountered before or from the archives.">"Write-in"
>>2929464"What the Abyssal soldiers? They're something I figured out waiting for you to return from your bath."
>>2929464>"Impressive, aren't they? They came forth from the boredom I suffered before we played our little game~~"
>>2929464>>"Write-in">*shrug* "i think advanced shadow golems or something. its magic I dont have an explanation really."
>>2929464Hey, QM, I was wondering, would we be able to create a he or item that nullifies an ability in a certain radius of Nemo? It would probably be a good idea to make one that nullifies Rushit's Detect Danger ability for when we fight him again.
Also I just did some number crunching out of boredom / curiosity.This is Marianne's statline:>Strength: 89>Speed: 91>Defense: 52>Magic: 85This is the average of our 3 types of Abyssal soldier's:>Strength: 60.333>Speed: 39.666>Defense: 26.333>Magic: 0.000Ignoring the lack of magical capability, our fairly cheap summons are about half to two thirds as capable as her. Precise percentages of power are:>Strength: 67.78%>Speed: 43.58%>Defense: 50.64%>Magic: 0%
>>2929483"Impressive, aren't they? They came forth from the boredom I suffered before we played our little game~~""All in that time?!""Yup! Just don't think about it too much okay, Mistress?" proceeding forward."W-Wait for me!" catching up to me.>Roll 1d100

>>2929555>>2929558>>2929562>92Reaching the passage-way that led to the shrine with minor hardships, I commanded my army to guard the way behind us as we went in to inspect it. The shrine was small like a hut with nothing inside but a statue. The passage looked chiseled like the streets of Aliasa, worn down by time."What's this?" Fen said, touching the statue. "It's just a rock.""I advise to not play with it, Sister," Yoshka stopping her."I don't see the harm.

>>2929726>>2929735Taking it, I hand it to Cheru, "Could you hold this, Dear?"Cheru nodded, holding it against her chest."I'll check this statue out once we finish our current job, Mistress. Unless you wanted to do something with it," walking back out of the shrine."I guess you can take it. Not like I can do anything with it," joining me. "As for the cave, we don't know when it'll end but I doubt anything can stop your horde."I giggle, "My pride, Mistress. Now let's resume our tour~"Leaving the the passage, we all meet back at the main path that continued to go down. Some insects were killed in our absence by my monsters, their bodies laying on the ground as their blood, darker than red, leaked out. Giving the order to move, the whole crowd went in unison, marching down the underground road.>Roll 1d100

It looks to be a nest of sorts, obviously housing some sort of spider, or spiders if the size has anything else to say. The line halted in front of it, awaiting my orders."That's something you don't see in the surface," remarked Marianne."Is it perhaps dangerous?" I questioned. "We don't know what lies beyond that conglomeration of webs and I doubt my soldiers would be able to pass without getting stuck themselves.""I don't know. I could probably burn the webs with my magic but we won't know what will come at to escape the fire."> Burn the webs> Another way? (write-in)> Turn back

>>2929976>>2929977>>2929985>93Telling one of the beetles to throw itself upon the webs and struggle, it obeyed, the webs spring around like a rubber band. The constant movement garnered the attention of a human sized spider which skittered out of the webs. It started to spin the undead insects, wrapping it until every spot was covered by the sticky substance it produced.Before it could retreat to bring in its catch, I hastefully walked to it to talk."Is this your nest?" I asked the spider.At first it looked like it didn't understand me, but after a silent moment it communicated back."This. Nest. Yes. Queen's," skittering slightly closer, myself taking a few steps back. "No. Intruders. Will.

It sounded like the spider agreed to my request but I cannot fully believe he did since he was less smarter than the animals and monsters that I have previously communicated with.Every now and then, another group of spiders showed themselves as well but now approaching us. They didn't move any closer than the border of the web, kept at bay from us or whatever they're subservient to. Many of them were the same, their bodies uniform: black bodies, red markings like a widow, and long willowy limbs whose movements are alien. In general, the being of a insect is alien; invertebrates that biologically work differently with strange body parts, organs and such.During my thought, the activity of the spiders became livelier, a more heavy sound coming from within the den."Who are you to ask of my presence? No that I don't take kindly of ones that step upon my territory."A spider which was way bigger than the ones that accompanied it revealed itself from the tangling webs. Way bigger than a human, it could rival Yoshka and Fen's original sizes. The queen spider was lighter in color, black and grey patterns of fur covering it's exoskeleton, red eyes unlike the ones of its servants, and two long fangs. Cheru was taken aback by its display, digging her head into my bosom.> "Is this perhaps the end of the cave?"> "You are the queen of this nest I suppose?"> "Do you only rule these spiders or the rest of the monsters here?"> Appraise> Attack (Write-in)> Other/Write-in

She skittered back into the web, making me think that's she's retreating but I stopped when the surrounding webs and smaller spiders began to fade into nothing. Now, it was only a small spider's nest which centered inside a dead-end of the cavern, the spider queen towering still as big as before."I see that it's useless now to put up this farce.

Also I have some lesson plans for Fuuma in Lionheart. I think we should do Golem trial and pair the students or just one on one them. Or we should do Fuuma vs Everyone in a forest where students try to attack her.
>>2931257Nah Fen don't eat chocolate since chocolate is poison to her. Marrianne is the one who will add we have cookies very meekly.

Soon enough it did, the spider unable to move as it tried to climb the wall again, falling down to the ground."What did you do?! I can't move!" it said, the eight legs struggling in the air.

Izanami was worried about the development but I assured that it won't harm her, not that it didn't in the past but it's a gamble in my favor. As I faintly chant, her arachnid body was overtaken by the blackness that once shaped Yoshka and Fen, making her into my aimed image.What came to be was a tall, and I mean tall woman with a pair of breast that rivaled Marianne in size. Her hair was fashioned long that reached down to her knees, grey in color that darkened into black that somewhat resembled Cheru's hair color. Of course, on her neck was a collar of symbols, completing the transformation perfectly."It seems you caught another member again, Mother," Yoshka tensely said.

Perking up, Iza awkwardly put her arms around Cheru, watching me do my work."I could make my own clothes you know.""It'll be fine, Sweetie. Just sit down and let mother make you something~ Now, Dear, what would look good on sister Iza?""Cheru doesn't know. Big sister is big.""Difficult to think about, huh?

>>2932323>>2932325>>2932347"You said that you can make your own clothes, right?""Yes, I can use my silk. I think..." producing a thin strand of webbing from her fingertips to which Iza sighed in relief."I'll let you make your own but please make it look like a maid's, Sweetie."Iza looked at me confusedly, "Maid?""I'm saying to make your clothes like mine," presenting my dress to her with a twirl. "It's like your new sister's own.""Alright..." taking a glimpse of the uniforms that me, Cheru, and Fen are currently wearing. Like using an invisible, her fingers strummed, plucked, and drawn the thin fibers from her finger tips, rapidly taking form. Iza was a master at it, easily making a maid's dress and other additional garments in such a short amount of time. The uniform was like mine, but it was centrally white because of the silk she used. She then gently told Cheru to get up from her so she can change, slipping on the clothes in front of us."How does this look?

"It's definitely better than calling you nothing, and what's this?""That's a very important item that you need to wear, Sweetie. There are some circumstances that call for such thing."Uncertain, Iza puts it on, "Okay, Mother...Sounds weird after we just fought.""That fight was nothing, forget about it. Everything will go along smoothly now."Turning back to Marianne with Cheru and Iza in tow, she was watching Fen stretching her arms next to Yoshka who had a skittish expression on his face."What are they doing, Mistress?" I asked."The wolf girl was upset about her height so she started stretch when your son joked about it.

"You can rest now, Dear."Fen pouts, "One day I'll be bigger!"I giggled lightly, "Some day, some day. Is there anything wrong, Darling?" turning head to Yoshka."Everything's fine, it's just funny when sister tries these kinds of things but I can't exactly do it in front of her you know.""Fufu, glad to see you close," ruffing the top of his head. "Now let's get going. I believe that we've finished doing our job, right, Mistress?"Marianne agreed, nodding her head while her arms are crossed, "You're right. Initially, I thought that we'll have to stay here for another day but your surprises sped things up. I suppose I'm thankful," saying unknowingly. "Your little army did clear out the entire cave after all...""Wait, Mother killed everything in the cave?!" exclaimed Iza, the news reaching her like a stroke of lightning."Yup, all me and my little helpers. Impressive, no?" I proudly said."That's just monstrous..." "Now, now, let's go back to the surface. There's buckets of fun once you follow~" pulling Iza with me as Marianne took the lead. "I suppose we don't need my little army do we?""That depends. Do you want the church to get wind of this? Last time I check they don't like people who can magic up these kinds of things - witches and whatnot.""Really? Oh well."Sending the abaddon troops back to the shadows, they waltz back from where the came. As for the undead bugs, I purified them to leave nothing behind, their use now exhausted. With everything cleaned up we then make our way back up, retracing the steps inside the cavern with Iza, a new member of my family, now following us in company.She got along well with the others, that's what I saw at least, making some small conversation with Yoshka and Fen about me and who they are. Yoshka gave the basic rundown to her, explaining my magical and physical capabilities and some vague info about me coming from an original world to which Iza didn't get. This continued all the way back to the cave's entrance, Iza getting to know the present cast.Once Iza saw the plains before her, she covered her eyes that were more white than Yoshka's, "Dammit! The light hurts!""You okay?" I said, checking her well-being. "I can remedy something for you.""No, it's just that I'm not use to the light. It'll take time...""Alright, Dear.

Nothing else to do and it's the afternoon.""Oh yeah, what about the soldiers and knights here? Can they be trusted not to spill what I've done back at Aliasa?""Trust me, they know when to keep their mouths shut. Knights and soldiers have their jobs and the church to worry about so I assure you that they won't speak of anything."Marianne went and sought the knight who was in charge, the one who she talked to right before we went into the cave. She explained what we've done and commanded the camp to start packing; the knight was perplexed but ultimately did what Marianne told, announcing the whole encampment to gather up the supplies and ready for the next morning to go back to the capital. Done notifying the proper authority, Marianne then headed to the coach with us behind her. With not enough room on my side, Iza was forced to sit on Marianne's end but with minor qualms, not like she's picky with seating. Like that, we went our way straight back to the Legoune province, the same scenery passing by us but with different color.Like Fen and Cheru, Iza too stared outside the window with amazement, but with a more masked expression than her new sisters who show emotion easily. Once in a while, she would ask about what was what to which we answered her in a way without treating her like a child. Iza was content with us, although a bit too proud since her abilities and personality haven't change from spider to human.-------------------Back at the mansion, I helped down Marianne and my children one after another, taking on a traditional role of a servant without the "combat" from combat-maid. Inside, the other servants were doing what they've always done and that was keeping the household clean."This way, not that," Fen said to Iza who was going the wrong hall. "Over here's our family room. It's spacey so don't worry about that.""Er, okay?" the spider girl, confused; following the Fen which juxtaposed the picture.> Go to your room too> Go with Marianne> Go to the basement> Other/Write-in
>>2932616Yeah we did, we got 96 EXP out of it.>>2932668>Ask Cheru for the Statue if we don't have it>Go to the basement and clean it of any dirt or moss that might be on it.On a different note concerning the EXP, I would like to propose investing some of the EXP into a skill that will allow us to activate more than one skill or spell at a time, provided that it can be doable of course.
>>2932682And to defend my proposition, I've noticed that even with the advantage on our side, we're still doing just one spell at a time, which means in fights where numbers are not on our side, we will eventually be swarmed regardless of soldiers since any force we can summon does not have much quality and thus can be easily subdued.With this multicast/activation skill we will increase our force multiplication at least threefold, which will give us a better control over how most battles and combat plays out.It'll also allow us a better chance to defend ourselves against the other heroes if they decide to attack us while we are alone.
>>2932682>>2932702Do we need that though? It could be done with rolls. For each additional spell casted, the roll gets harder. F.e. casting 2 spells at once is at a -10, casting 3 at a -20 etc. That's just my idea, QM might be very lenient again
>>2932720>Do we need that though? Yes we do, because there will be times where we will need to cast more than one thing at a single action and not be able to do so and thus we end up getting someone killed because we could not multi-target, or cast two different types of spells at the same time.>It could be done with rolls. For each additional spell casted, the roll gets harder. F.e. casting 2 spells at once is at a -10, casting 3 at a -20 etc. That's just my idea, QM might be very lenient againI think that it is a good idea, which is why if this ruling is implemented then I want the skill that can allow us to still do it as often as we can pull it off.
>>2932734With the "do we need that" i was referring more to a "do we need to have an extra skill for that?" It seems like smth that we should be able to do already

>>2932747If that is the case then why are we still casting just one at a time instead of dumping all the different spells we can muster at the same time like a Touhou boss?Not one caster that we have met so far has casted more than one spell in a single action. Even Rushit (However I can go with the excuse that he is retarded) didn't cast more than one spell, and he has a lead on us in the magic stat.
>>2932668> Go with Marianne
>>2932682>>2932748I looked down to see Cheru, "Dear, could you give me that little statue now?""Nn, here," giving it to me."Thank you, Dear. Could your brother and sisters?"Cheru nodded, "Nn, Cheru will wait for mommy," going with Fen and the others, waving behind herself till she was obscured by the corner of the hall."I'll be in the basement, Mistress. If there's anything you need of me then I'll be there until further said," making my way."Okay, likewise, I'll be in my room."Departing from each other, I went on my lonesome to the basement, revisiting my personal abode. It was still as clean when I left, the lanterns hovering in the air like it's on top of water. Setting the statue on a table within the lab that occupied the initial space I began to put runes on it, cleaning it to the best of my magical capabilities. The runes that I made made a magic barrier, somewhat weaker than my current [Faint Barrier]; for the purpose of protecting the statue from any outside harm.

>>2932843>>2932853>>2932863>>2932869>>2932874I made another space inside the basement, a room much smaller in comparison to others. In there, I made a little shrine for the statue to be placed in, furthering imbuing magic into it with [Divinus Humanitus] so it won't get weathered. The shrine was an imitation of the one that I found it in back in the cave: circular like a hut or an an apse in the church, the roof of the shrine being held up by too little pillars; it was almost like a Greek building from the books.Finished with dedicated a room for Vamia, I then kneel down and prayed. There was some sort of connection being made but it was weak, way fainter than praying to Alia. There was something inside that statue that felt like mana was being used from my body, like filling a cup of water. Nonetheless, nothing happened within that time, so I got up and checked on the shrine a few times for anything before leaving it.Sitting on a chair that was next to the tables and cabinets, I opened my status so I could use my earned experience points...__________Name: Fuuma Nagaro (Nemo)Race/Species: Human Status Ailments:[Evil Eye: Paralysis][Marking Hex of Waking][Marking Hex of Identification][Marking Hex of Danger Sense] Strength: 200Speed: 290 [Stamina Reserve: 150]Defense: 200Magic: 300 [Exp Points: 96] Skills & Magic:[Appraise] [Divinus Avaritia] [Divinus Humanitas] [Inhuman Communication] [Mana Control III][Imperfect Poison of Lust: Masochism] [Abaddon Troops] [Stamina Reserve II] [Air Walker] [Fire Resistance I] [Poison Immunity] [Fire Creation] [Fire Arrow] [Water Creation] [Water Arrow] [Torrent] [Stone Needle] [Fertile Earth] [Clay Earth][Wind Blade] [Air Control] [Weathering] [Light Creation] [Heal II] [Purify II] [Light Blade] [Faint Barrier I][Aide: Resilent] [Greater Reanimate] [Poison Creation III] [Marking Hex] [Dark Arrow] [Horrid Grasp] [Evil Eye:Paralysis] [Golem Create] [Runecraft I] Divinus Avaritia (Stolen Skills & Spells):[Illusion] Titles:[Folk Goddess] [Divine Child of the Scales] [The Deer Mother] [Sadistic] [Pain Runner] Magic treeFire: 1Water: 1Earth: 1Wind: 1Light: 2Dark: 2__________Current exp points: 96> Allocate to stats> Upgrade a skill or spell (cost 15exp)> Level magic (cost 10*(4*current magic level)> Save current points

>>2934343Vamia is the Goddess of darkness/evilThe one who is always responsible for summoning a Demon King for 'reasons'Maybe if she could adapt society to worship her through little acts of rituals or call her by a pseudonym it would make her happy.Like 'Vamia keep you' when something nasty happens or bad/weird luck is called 'vamia's bones shaken'.Or call her ' The Kindly One' like they do in Greece when they want to keep the three Furies away from themselves or 'Blessed Dark'.Maybe that'll keep her from throwing tantrums.

It doesn't really make her evil per say but it's just that when she gets angry she would throw a tantrum that spawns beings that I can only assume draws from her anger. Might be some sort of catharsis or something. She's the youngest too so she might just be growing into her abilities and isn't able to control them. Also, I'm half sure that this shrine will be our way to get into touch with the demon lord if we want.

>>2934587>>2934603>>2934605>>2934634>>2934661>>2934714"How does it feel being my alter ego," I asked still licking my other self's hand. "Do you know the 'opposite qualities' between us?...Do you like guys?""L-Like?!" becoming flustered. "I-- N-Nothing in particular...""Oh, I get it~" my wolfish smile coming back to me. "Before we do anything else. what am I going to call you? It's frustrating enough to keep track of who is who in this situation.""H-How about Ruri Nagaro? Kala for my alias.""That works, Ruri, or Kala," detaching myself from her hand. "Do you by any chance have any hexes on you? I want to appraise you."Ruri looks into the collar of her maid dress, "No, I don't have any.""Okay," I said, appraising her.__________Name: Ruri Nagaro (Kala)Race/Species: Alter egoStatus Ailments:[Evil Eye: Paralysis][Soul Connection (Fuuma Nagaro) ][Underworld Alteration: Angelic]Strength: 100Speed: 150Defense: 100Magic: 175Skills & Spells:[Inhuman Communication] [Mana Control III] [Imperfect Poison of Lust: Masochism] [Air Walker] [Fire Resistance I][Poison Immunity] [Fire Creation] [Fire Arrow][Water Creation] [Water Arrow] [Torrent][Stone Needle] [Fertile Earth] [Clay Earth][Wind Blade] [Air Control] [Weathering][Light Creation] [Heal III] [Purify III] [Light Blade] [Faint Barrier II] [Aide: Resilent] [Glorious Shine] [Consecrate][Nectar's Blood][Major Reanimate] [Poison Creation III] [Marking Hex] [Dark Arrow] [Horrid Grasp] [Evil Eye:Paralysis] [Dark Vision][Blackout] [Underworld Alteration I] [Silencing Curse][Golem Create] [Runecraft I]Titles:[Divine Child of the Scales (Fake) ] [Innocent]__________"Hmm, interesting. You almost have all the same spells and skills that I have, Ruri.""Yeah, I noticed, F-Fuuma...Do you prefer to be called Lana by me?""Fuuma is okay when we're alone. But in public or in company, call me Lana, please."Ruri nods, "Right."I took a look around the room, pondering what to do next. And at that moment, a devious plan brewed."Ne~ Want to surprise, Mistress?" my grin showing itself twice now."S-Sure, lead the way.""Mhmm~! This will be spectacular!"Pulling my alter ego with me, we both exited the basement. The workers who we passed gave us strange looks, mostly centered on the newly created "Ruri Nagaro" that looked exactly like me. It didn't bother us much, the heat of the moment shielding us from the onlooker's stare.With excitement, we've both reached Marianne's room. Knocking on the door, Marianne opened it to see two of mes, pushing our way into her room. She was too shocked to give an answer right away, giving us time to do what we want with her~> "Who shall it be, Mistress~ The dominant Lana or the submissive Kala?"> Proceed to hold down Marianne on the bed> Kiss Ruri and Marianne with the imperfect poison> Other/Write-in

>>2934762>>2934798>>2934785in order please
>>2934798+1Marianne brain explodes!
>>2934798This is good.We can let Ruri decide on her own if she wants to be naughty like us.

It's also sweet.Damn guys, I leave for pretty much the better part of a day and already we're getting stuff that's more or less turning us into some weird Lasombra/Salubri vampiric crossbreed in some Mage's basement. I'm not hating on it, it's just a bit of an amazement.>>2934798Also yes, we are capable of reproducing via Maid Mitosis.
>>2934785>>2934800>>2934849>>2934875"Mistress! I have split! I have spliiit!" getting extremely close to Marianne."Wait, don't understand!" still trying to figure things out to why there's two Fuumas. "Who's that, s-settle down!"I laugh, "Kehaha! Still cute as ever, Mistress. Joking aside, I got a new spell that lets me summon my alter ego. Meet your new maid, and sister, Ruri Nagaro. Kala is her alias, just like how mine is.""Alter ego? She...doesn't look any different.""You can say that but she's not exactly a clone of myself. Her personality is a bit different than mine. It's more fun for you to find that out, Mistress!" becoming intimately close to Marianne, feeling her.Marianne stares at Ruri intensely before looking back down at me, "I-- What? Then is she not real, Lana?" her heart racing, its thumping clearly felt from under her shirt. Ruri was also watching us with a confound expression, wide-eyed to our display."She's real, Mistress," pushing her against the bed. "Now it's double the maids, double the fun~" I then look back to Ruri, "Care to join?""I-I think I'm fine-- Woah!"I pulled Ruri with my free hand, lobbing her onto the bed as well. With all three of us together, I made sure that the door was locked and that all the curtains were closed, including the bed's own. Now it's just me, Ruri, and Marianne, hiding within the bed's drapes.> "Which do you want, Mistress? The sadistic and dominating, Lana? Or the Submissive and innocent, Kala~?"> "Kala, I believe it's time to punish mistress for what she did to me this morning~ It was awfully painful~"> Proceed to bind Marianne like yesterday's night> Other/Write-in

>>2934923>> "Which do you want, Mistress? The sadistic and dominating, Lana? Or the Submissive and innocent, Kala~?">>Make sure Kala stay innocent, no bully

>>2934987Yeah, gotta be careful after yesterday.
>>2934923I'll second >>2934987
>>2935037>>2934987>>2934957I'd say don't forget to lock the damn door.Because that's like the first thing everyone forgets when hanky panky stuff happens.
>>2935047We did lock the door.>>2934923>I made sure that the door was locked and that all the curtains were closed, including the bed's own.
>>2934773>OMG she is pure!!>>2934785>I forgot about the innocentI have my doubts. We're not bad guys, so an alter ego would be a really bad things, also check that she already activated [Underworld Alteration I], her Status Ailments says [Underworld Alteration: Angelic], my guess is that she's trying to conceal her true personality.Her [Innocent] title should has a hiding meaning, and so far we has never appraised a title, maybe they have hiding abilities.
>>2935154Except we have appraised titles before, like Cheru's Insanity Title.The problem is that we're not appraising everyone's titles like we are with the skills and spells.
>>2935169Oh, you're right, my bad, anyway, as you say, we haven't doing it that much, we should do it we ours at first.
>>2935174It's ok Anon, there's just a lot of stuff to juggle and to make sense of. I'm considering myself lucky that I can barely comprehend about half of it in the first place.
>>2935186It's going to be alright Anon, the dirty Rushit can't touch us anymore.And to bring up what you said earlier about Fake Fuuma hiding abilities, why not just cast some form of dispel magic on her to get rid of whatever is hiding her true self?
"Kala, I believe it's time to punish mistress for what she did to me this morning~ It was awfully painful~"Kala continued to show her timidness, "H-How so? I don't know what you mean.""You'll see~"Reaching under the bed, I retrieved the same old items as yesterday's night: a rope, blindfold, and whip. Wasting no time I immediately went in to tie Marianne's body with the rope, tugging the line that crossed her crotch more times than I could count. The pleasure overtaking the strong, resolute woman as she moans in delight."Oh! That reminds me. Kala, could you soundproof the room with a rune. Don't want Cheru to hear again.""On it," she said, pushing the bed's curtains open momentarily and inscribing a rune on the door - a direct copy of the ones in the basement. "Lana, isn't this a bit too...naughty?"> "Aw, don't be shy. Go and tie this blindfold around mistress' head."> "I'll have to agree with you, but as you know, I love this sort of thing~"> "Do you want to kiss, Mistress? Using imperfect poison will certainly make things more wonderful~"> "Don't worry, I'll be gentle - well, try to. Can't promise that I won't tear mistress' gown again~"> Other/Write-in
