You wouldn't want to humiliate him. Your train of thought is interrupted as Ulric goes on the offense. He attacks once with each sword for 8 + 7 damage. On the other hand; you don't want to hurt Ulric, you decide to use your magic so you can better control the fight. The spell is difficult but you succeed. A transluscent green barrier washes over you.>"I feel responsible for Alina"Ulric slashes at your eyes but the attack is deflected by your bronze helment. He hits you with his offhand sword doing 0 damage. He takes two steps back with a slightly shocked look.You advance and jab him with your hammer for 7 damage.>"I made her stay and now spy on her"Ulric tries to hack your arm but fails to connect. His seconds attack strikes you for 0 damage.>"You do tough decision for those you care"You attack but Ulric evades your heavy swing.Ulric: "You sound like her dad!"Ulric lands a direct hit with a power attack doing 0 damage. His offhand attack hits for 0 damage.Ignoring his response you hit him with your own power attack doing 16 damage. This attack staggers Ulric.>"That is exactly why I do this to you!"Seeing an opening you throw aside your weapon and try to tackle him. He hits you with a double slash to no avail, you collide with him and you both go tumbling to the ground. A short struggle begins, Ulric is about as strong as you are, but he's taken more of a beating than you. Within a few moments you have him pinned firmly to the ground.You catch your breath, keeping Ulric firmly immobile.>"We're not doing bad things to each other. We're literally just checking if she's okay."Ulric: "I didn't mean to do it! One moment we were talking and the next we were fighting! I'm sorry Christof I didn't want to hurt you. If you want to make sure Alina's okay I wont stop you.">You gained 500XP.>You now have 26925.>Ulric has gained a permanent +1 to his constitution.>"I forgive you.">"Next time think before you point your sword at someone.">"I may of been a little over aggressive just now. Sorry.">"Honestly Ulric, I just wanted to guage your combat ability.">"You needn't apologize Ulric.">"Forget about the crystal ball, I'm sure Alina will be fine.">"Alright. Salaman, proceed with the scrying.">write in

>>2950933>tell ulric you'll never forget that he draw his sword on a friendIf we're his friend, we shouldn't worsen things by throwing that in his face. We should identify why he did it in the first place, maybe, rather than telling him we'll never trust him now.
WARNING: flashback scene incoming.Ulric: "Wow you beat the wizard all by yourself?"Galeran: "Wizards are easy Ulric, you just gotta fight them on your terms. Hey, take a look at this."Ulric: "Cool, what is it?"Galeran: "It's a crystal ball, corrupt leaders and jerk wizards use them to spy on good decent people like us."Ulric: "Ohh... so are you going to smash it?"Galeran: "Nah, these things are worth a lot of Talons, mum and dad could use the money, plus I know some people in the village who could use a hand."Ulric: "Yeah! And we use the rest to make a donation to the temple!"Galeran: "hahaha. No Ulric..."
You release Ulric and retrieve you warhammer.>"Next time think before you point your sword at someone."Ulric: "I-">"Especially before drawing your sword on a friend."Ulric gazes downwards and says nothing.>"Alright. Salaman, proceed with the scrying."Salaman: "Here we go."The mist inside the crystal ball clears revealing Alina sleeping in a bed.Salaman: "Anticlimactic.">"See? Just checking in on her."...
You suddenly hear unnerving footsteps. You lookup to see you have been surrounded by four Jabberwocks. When you see them they break into a sprint and leap at you with their razor claws.>You are in combat>You have 35/56 HPQueue your next four actions>Attack 85%>Flurry 75%>Power Attack 75%>Jab 95%>Defend>Called Shot>Counter Attack>Spell>Item>write in

>>2951478You awaken to see Salaman, Ulric and the stranger that aided you standing over you. You don't feel any pain at all. In fact it seems your wounds were healed while you were unconcious.To the sides you see the smoking corpses of the monsters you were fighting.Salaman: "See? He's fine."Ulric: "Christof! I'm so sorry!

>>2951626Missed it by *that* much.Heh.
>>2951621>Endure Elements (Abjuration I)we can endure shit like fire. A no-brainer I would think>Sleet Strom (Conjuration III)For Salaman. But ONLY if he has skill points in conjuration (I cant check, imgur is down dol)
>>2951631>we can endure shit like fire. A no-brainer I would thinkActually I think that was one of Christof's starting spells.>For Salaman. But ONLY if he has skill points in conjuration (I cant check, imgur is down dol)Well that's a damn fine coincidence, that's Salaman's only skill.
>>2951621Assuming Waterbreathing is enchantment, to me that leaves:>>Burning Hands (Evocation I)>>Continual flame (Evocation II)>>Flaming Sphere (Evocation II)>>Gust of Wind (Evoation II)>>Pyrotechnics (Transmutation II)>>Fireball (Evocation III)>>Fly (Transmutation III)I say let's drop those 20 skill points into Evocation and pick up Burning Hands, maybe Fireball.Or we get Transmutation and pick up Fly. Which is useful, but less so for a melee fighter.After buying spells:>>"Would you like to buy something from me?" *present your items to her*We can't speak her language.Let's show her everything, including our goblin helmet, axe of life stealing, and especially the cursed mace. What could go wrong? Maybe the mace could translate for us for extra fun!
>>2951631>>2951641I'm agreed on the Sleet Strom for Salaman.

(I'm going to have to end it here sorry there weren't many updates. I don't know when I'll be able to run Seeker Quest again. but I'll probably be reachable from qtg. Thanks for playing.Also you have 40 unspent skill points now. You should probably make a decision now while you have spells available for purchase.
>>2951722I know that feel QM. When you don't have time to run, because of life. Great Quest OP.
>>2951677>I say let's drop those 20 skill points into Evocation and pick up Burning Hands, maybe Fireball.Seconding this in terms of leveling up and getting spells for ourselves.
To be honest I dont like the idea of leveling evocation. I prefer we keep melee as our main source of damage(If we need ranged we have Alina and Salaman), and besides we already start out with 20 points in trasmutation. So why not this:>Dump all 40 points into transmutation>Buy Pyrotechnics, Fly, Whispering Wind and Water Breathing spellsWe'll jumpstart to being a very decent transmuter with all this and in a few more levelups we will perfect itThis also leaves us with 104 talons
>>2951952Whoops I forgot>Accept dealIts a acceptable sacrifice. Besides without accepting we wont get any of these sweet spells
Have Sigloi ever come up before? Forgive me for not remembering.
>>2951992This is the first time a currency other than talons has been mentioned.
>>2951952>If we need ranged we have Alina and SalamanDepending on others for ranged defense and attack is poor strategy. Also, what is Salaman's ranged abilities again?Melee should definitely be our main source of damage. But we need options and solutions to problems that come up.We just need to decide on the best way to do that.>tfw Salaman can conjure a tent over our enemies and we can set it on fire.Pyrotechnics requires a fire, doesn't it?Not sure on the usefulness of Waterbreathing.Unsureofthe benefits of Whispering Wind over Message.Also, I'm not certain of the best evocation spells to get.I am certain that we have some we can't use.
>>2951952>wanting to be a one-trick dog and taking allies for granted, so that when hammering doesn't work and our allies aren't around to bail us out, we get fucked over>not realizing the only reason we have 20 in Transmutation was because of either a troll who doesn't play any more, or someone who didn't understand how the magic system works>not wanting to be able to use the Shocking Grasp spell we already have for an additional option against enemies resistant to 4x hammer hit>not wanting to expand our arsenal further by including fire, so as to actually be able to adapt to more situations and maybe even bail out our friends once in a whileI'm not even saying to forget the hammer, because it would be stupid to bail on that damage source. Just use your head, think tactically, and stop taking allies for granted when there's going to be times when they aren't available; whether incapacitated or otherwise.
>>2953176We got +15 transmutation as a quest reward from the leefside magic shopkeeper
By the way...>>2927125>Alina is sitting on 21 unspent skill points.That sounds terribly uncomfortable. No wonder she seemed so unhappy. We'll have to fix that.What about going rogue with her?>>Stealth 27->40>>Lockpick 19->20>>Traps 23->30
>>2951677>I say let's drop those 20 skill points into Evocation and pick up Burning Hands, maybe Fireball.Confirming my vote:20 skill points into EvocationBurning HandsFireballFly (Ha-HA! Dropping flaming tents from above! This isn't even my final form!)
From last thread,>Disguise 17->20>Traps 27->30>Persuade 79->80>Listen 59->60>Evocation 0->12for 20, and then the other 20 into transmutation. Transmutation would be at a decent level and we never fucking touch it again because we max evocation first.Can you imagine what would happen if someone landed a called shot and Christof drops the hammer?
