You are Qualo the spider demonYou just woke up from your 1000 year slumberWhat o you do?
>>3392487look for our other legs
>>3392499"This is odd" you think to yourselfI feel less powerfull than last time I woke
>>3392520Hmmm...find something to eat for breakfast, you've been sleeping for a while
>>3392558You look around for a while in your caveYou find a rat, damn they've gotten bigger since you last saw one
>>3392593Play dead to lure it in, then jump itCan we make thread?
Your plan works perfectly, you playd the rat like a dan fiddleYou see that your thread making powers are still intactThe rat is completely stuck
>>3392703Eat the ratThen investigate the fourth panel, it seems SUSPICIOUS
>>3392703You kill the rat sticking your leg thru his eyeYou remove your thread as to not spoil the taste of the rat as you feast on it's fleshYou feel yourself absorb the rat's soul and become strongerYou also try to investigate those weird yellow words you saw the corner of your ye but they seeem to be gone
>>3392785See if we can analyze our abilities/strengthAlso make cozy web somewhere safe
>>3392797After absorbing the soul you become larger and strongerYou also grow a tail that seems to be able to shoot fireThis reminds you of your friend Angur the Scorpion DemonYou also go to your resting place and renew the thread on your bed it got really dirty the last 1000 years.
>>3392852Be confused as to how you're a spider with a tailRemember if there's a way to contact your scorpion buddy
You start to observate your new tail, looking closer into it you see that it's soft and fleshy, it looks like a rat's tail so you probably got it from the soul you absorved earlier.As you remember your friend Angur you try to telepathically contact him to no avail, hopefully he's resting rather than fallen.As you walk around you see the exit to the cave
>>3392918Stay near it, observing what's outside
>>3392954Seconding, we be a smart demon
>>3392954You poke your head out of the entrance, you are saddened by the human built path that leads right to your cave, tha land looks prosperous and happy, thiis once was all your domain.There's a forest nearby, and a path forking in two directions, one path has a sign in humanspeak, it looks like a kid's scribbles to you, the other path is signless, there's also a forest nearby
>>3393036Enter the forest
>>3393041Seconding, but be sneaky about it
You enter the forest and head in deeper and deeper untill trees surround you in every directionYou hear the sound of hawling to the southYou hear the sounds of an axe hitting a tree to the westYou hear the sounds of running water to the east
>>3393073How tall are we?Go towards the ax noises, full stealth. Via tree if that works.
>>3393073Waaaaait, why did your name and trip change from beginning? Is this a different QM?
>>3393099Nah I fucked up>>3393089When you get close enough to the noice yo climb using your web, you see a human chopping down a tree, his home is withn running distance behind him, he's clompletely unaware.
>>3393169How big are we compared to the human
>>3393198You're about a medium dog's size
>>3393210Okay, go check out the human's home while they're busy, watch out for anyone else
>>3393228You sneak past the man who seems to be really busy in his woodcutting, inside the humble cabin is a woman and a small child and few furnitures.
>>3393329Try and get into the house without being seen, hide under a bed or somethingNeed to wait until the woman is elsewhere.or distracted until we can the child. If she catches us, set her on fire.
>>3393353The woman and the child go into another room so you take your chance to sneak in, however you hear the woman's footsteps immediately coming into the room again, you jump into a nearby chest and think you're safe."Mommy I saw something jump into my toy box"It's probably a Squirrel my sweet, I'll go scare it off"The woman is walking your direction
>>3393396Play dead againPrepare the fire tail for FACE BURNING ACTION
>>3393422Your tail is extended ready to shoot fireShe picks you up from the chest"What a strange creature, it looks like it's dead, guess it was attacked by something and ran into the chest in a panic""Throw it out mom it's yucky"She starts walking towards the door/sorry for taking so long I didn't want the woman to look too uncaney valley)
>>3393550It's cool my dude, I'm doing other stuff as wellAlso, is it hot in here or is that just a spider demon BURNING HER FACE OFF QUICKLY KILL HER KILL KILLAhem
You leap ot of her arms and start burning her alive, her ees quickly melt and pop as she screams in agony, she starts coughing up blood and then quickly falls to the floor no longer screaming.The child on the corner just falls to the floor terrifyedFrom outside you can hear the man screaming "HONEY???"
>>3393633How fast to eat her soul?If we can eat it before the guy gets here, do soOtherwise it's child-murder time
>>3393689You quickly absorb her soul, you feel yourself become stronger and bigger but humans are creatures too mundane to grant you any special powersThe man is close to the cabin now, you hear his scream "Tamon what's happening is mom okay?"
>>3393726Time to flee before scary axe guy gets hereRun into the woods, he should be too busy with kid and corpse-wife to follow
You exit the house just as the man sees his wife's corpse, he seems to barely notice you as he drops his axe to the ground and runs inside, you keep walking into the forest as you hear the man cry to all the gods for an explanation, the child silenty sobbing.In the forest you can hear a stream of water close by, the sounds of howling in the distance and further south you can se the trees thinning out, probably an exit
Whooooooo free axe!Investigate waterAlso heading to bed QM, thanks
You get to a small riverThe water runs fastIn the middle there's a small island with a chest inside
>>3393905>treasure chestscrew that mortal shit we need more power. We can hoard treasure after we regain control of our domaingo hunt down more shit
>>3394210You walk around bloodthirsty for more power and head in the direction of the howling sounds, suddently a wolf pops outta the bushes and jumps in front of you, it's watching you closely in a predatory stance
>>3394261Web him up
>>3394412You get into a stance where you can shoot your web but the wolf is quick to jump out of the way, this isn't just any wolf it's a powerfull warrior.As the wolf manages to jump behind you he slashes at your leg with his claws, it's not too painfull but another blow at that leg could be big trouble, the wolf lands behind you, he doesn't have the most gracefull of landings so he looks a bit more vulnerable.
>>3394484Web him again
>>3394686You launch a web assault while the wolf was unsuspecting, it's way too slow for him though, he manages to side step the web, this puts a bit more distance between you two so the wolf has engaged in a cautious stance waiting for your next move.
>>3394916see if we cna web him again and get a SUPRISE FIRE IN TEH FACE
>>3394916Web the ground around is so if he does attack, he will be immobilized by our trap
>>3394954SUPPORTING THIS WEB PLAN
>>3394954>>3394964Sorry I was working on the image, this one was lenghty so I didn't see you guys reached another decision.>>3394944The wolf was taking the time to rest and recover his footing, he wasn't expecting another web attack after the last ones were unsuccesfull, he manages to dodge your third web barrage but a few threads catch his foot.You yank him down to the floor but he quickly uses his claws to free himself, he's looking cocky now as he thinks of you as a one trick pony.When he looks up he sees you propelling yourself forward, he's still not afraid and resumes his stance waiting to counterattack, he notices a 5th appendage you're using first and foremost in your assault.The wolf is engulfed in flames, he leaps out but the fire has already burnt him too much, he goes to the floor rolling and whimpering
QUALO HAS A FUCKING FLAME THROWER!Just stab the pooch in the brain or something
>>3394994web it again to immobilize and eat it alive while it is suffering
>>3394997You go in for the kill on the sad falled warrior, but suddently your killing blow is reflected effortlessly, it was a move of pure instinct now that the mamed animal can no longer use it's senses.The wolf is once again in a defensive position waiting for your attack, it looks like it hasn't accepted death yet.
>>3395030play dead and wait for chance to ambush
>>3395039You fake your death again, collapsing your injured leg first so it seems like you died due to your leg wound, you stood still but nothing happened.You open your eye slightly and notice that the wolf is gone, his heightened instincts probably made him realize the trap.Angry about the failure of your plan you stand up and start walking, suddently you hear the sound of dozens of wolves howling.
>>3395059oh fuck oh fuck, shoot web to tree branches like spiderman and liftoff, wolf dont climb tree right?
>>3395064You quickly climb onto the tallest tree nearby as the howling comes closer and closer, in the effort of the climb your wound started to bleed the little blood a demon possesses.Down on the ground one of the wolves gets a whiff of that smell(I'm going for lunch now so I'll probably take a while for the next update)
>>3395104WAIT(are we strong enough to hoist a wolf up hte tree?)
>>3395104Spider man from tree to tree leading the wolves back to the human home
>>3395127(I'm back I ended up ordering food)You wait a while and the wolves start circling around the tree you're on, they haven't looked up once.You think about hoisting one of them up but it'd be hard considering how high up you are>>3395153I'm gonna do this one next as it still applies
>>3395104go to the top of the tree and chill until the doggos pass
>>3395158my bad forgot to reload
You swing wildly barely managing to outpace your pursuers, the blood loss is making you feel dizzy and the nightfall doesn't help to navigate either.You manage to arrive at the lumberjack's house barely hanging onto your concioussness, the wolves following you very closely.The wolves enter the house trying to find a place to get to the roof, the last thing you hear before you black out is the sound of a fight breaking out downstairs, the whimpers of wolves and the grunts of the man cradle you to sleep.What do you see in your dreams:>your past domain?>your birth?>your journey to demonhood?>the battle that brought you to your 1000 year slumber?>your friends?>(or anything else)
>>3395219>your past domain?>your birth?
You wake up in the roof of the house, your injuries seem to be better
>>3395331look around is the humans still here what about the wolfs lets see if there is anything to eat
>>3395335You go inside the house to find all kinds of carnage, bood splattered everywhere.On the floor lie all the wolves except for the one you fought, if he survived he wouldn-t have been able to find you because of his lack of sense of smell.Also missing are the lumberjack and his son, it seems you maade the right choice fleeing from the lumberjack he was a powerfull foe for your current state.You absorb the soul of the wolf, you become bigger, stronger and get the ability to dash at incredible speeds for a short distance.
>>3395373Track down the wolf we fought, he must be wounded
>>3395376You try to track the wolf, you find a bloodtrail that goes from the house into the woods, after a while the blood is joined by human footsteps, suddently the blood dissapears but the footsteps remain heading out of the forest.The footsteps are probably the man's, maybe he took the wolf .
>>3395393Track from the top of trees
>>3395393It's a werewoofer>>3395397Seconding
>>3395397You climb on top of the trees, you've gotten so big that you can't stand on top of branches but you're strong enough to plant your feet onto the tree.From this altitute you find no sign of the wolf, you look onto the outside of the forest and you see that there's still some of the wolf's blood on the path, the human and the wolf were travelling together, and they seem to have parted while you were asleep.They're long gone.
>>3395429I dont want them tracking us, but w/e.Stay in the forest and search for prey to extend our arsenal of abilities.
>>3395437Agreed, get some meals/power-ups
>>3395437>>3395459(sorry for taking so long)You spend the day hunting down creatures that you haven't killed but you find out their souls aren't powerfull enough to feed you, it seems like the forest is only inhabited by small critters now, you stumble back into the small island you found earlier, it has a small trasure chest only guarded by a keyhole.
>>3395547circle around it why is there a random chest in a forest?
>>3395547Is it just wood? We might be able to smash it open but don't try just yet
>>3395569>>3395583You inspect the chest, it's the kind of chest you'd find at a peasant's home on some small village, it's placed very deliverately at the middle of this small island in the river.It doesn't look very sturdy
>>3395593Stand at a good distance and shoot some web at it to try knocking it slightlyIf it's going to explode or something's gonna attack us if it gets touched/moved, we'll find out
>>3395593set it on fire
You shoot some web at the chest, it budges slightly, it's preety heavy as it's made of wood so it doesn't have much reaction
>>3395635Smash it if possibleDon't set it on fire yet, might be flammable good stuff in it
>>3395645You strike the chest, as soon as your flesh makes contact with it it jumps to the side and revelas it's true form, it's a mimic.Suddently you hear a telepathic message, "so you're the one that's been disturbing the peace on my forest, I've dreaded the day you would wake from your rest Qualo"You know this voice, it's your old friend Vaastar the Owl Demon.
Ayyyy Vaastar...why are you a mimic now?
>>3395689what up Vaastar, why didn't you wake me up you little bitch
>>3395696>>3395715Excellent questions, seconding
>>3395689What the fuck were you doing all this time? Could you have not woke me up?
>>3395696>>3395715"Vaastar? What's the meaning of this, if you knew of my wake why are you not helping me, you are my subordinate""Times have changed Qualo, the demons don't rule over the lands anymore, this is a time of peace with the humans, what you're doing is unacceptable""Humans are nothing but Cattle Vaastar, savage beasts that don't deserve peace, and why have you taken this weird shape"Oh Squalo you know nothing, since your sleep you have become weak and feeble, this is my forest and I shall protect it, now you are the weakling and I won't show you mercy, this is my power to control the not living, and I'll use it to render this forest your grave.The chest is jumping towards you.
>>3395776Just set him on fire, clearly he went mad
>>3395782Good plan, full burninate on the backstabber Don't call people weak when you're pretending to be a chest, loser
>>3395782Supporting Maybe once we have him at deaths door we should ask him what happened and why humans are not cattle for us anymore.
>>3395782>>3395789>>3395814The chest launches at you so sloppily that you can easily counter with your flames."yield Vaastar, become my subordinate again and maybe I'll let you keep this land once we conquer the continent"You see the life leave the chest, form behind you hear"YOU FOOL hoot, I AM MASTER TO THE UNLIVING, THAT CREATURE DIDN?T EVEN HAVE A FRACTION OF MY POWER"You turn around to see Vaastar over the river flapping his wings to keep afloat, three rocks form the river take life and are launched at high velocity towards you.
>>3395869RUN THE FUCK AWAYOut of the forest, hopefully he won't chase us thereMaybe set the forest on fire as we go, fuck you traitor
run and burn down fuckign everything as you go
>>3395938>>3395882You bolt quickly to the other side as the rocks almost hit you you use your dash ability to dodge them, you see the way that the exit lies but suddently two dead trees take life.You've been trying to burn down things as you go but you're moving so fast that you can't keep your flame on something long enough to catch it on fireThe rocks are coming rapidly to one side and the trees are to the other"YOU CAN'T RUN AND YOU CAN'T hoot, HIDE"
>>3395986jump in the water and let it carry you away
>>3395998Yeah, screw this place, screw this dude, swimming time
>>3395998You maneuver the rocks that were closest to you and manage to jump into the river, as you get carried away by the current you see some pebbles come to life but they're way too small and the current is way to strong for them to catch up."THIS ISN'T THE LAST YOU'LL hoot SEE OF ME QUALO!" was the last thing you heard before getting out of the forestDo you get off the water immadiatly, or wait a while(Damn that was smart I was about to give you a really hard time on that encounter)
>>3396054lets see where life takes us mang
>>3396054>really hard timeWE NOTICEDWait a whileAlso silently swear vengeance, what a douche
You remain in the water for a while, your encounter with Vaastar gave you a lot to think about, mainly you think about strangling him and feeling the life leave his eyes, you also onder how Angur is doing.You arrive at a small man made bridge that keeps you from floating further.To one side of the bridge is a sign with the same human writing you saw outside your caveand another path that leads up the mountainTo the other is a flag with an emblem that sickens you to the very core, though you can't remember why, you can see horse footsteps and wheel marks that passed todayThere's also a path underground if you were to continue in the river
>>3396152path under ground
>>3396152Follow the path to the mountains. We might find some trolls or something to eat.
>>3396207>>3396258(Sorry for taking this long, I tossed a coin between these two btw)You choose to climb the mountain hoping to find powerfull foes to grant you abilities rather than weak humans that use unatural means to gain strengh.You pass skulls by the entrance of the mountain, you feel at ease(thank you all for being with me in this, i have to study so I won't be able to continue today, take care guys)
>>3396440It has been quite fun. Can't wait for part 2: Troll boogaloo
When will QM return from the war
>>3417494I was gonna start it up last friday but I didn't have acces t my computer for bitchass reassons
