White Tower have manifested. Soon enough, death and pestilence will follow. It's up to you to prevent the calamity.On the previous episode: >>4464270http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=white+towertldr: We rushed into the tower, got to the first floor, ignored all of QMs plothooks and got our magical talisman stolen by a Scarily Existing Pleistocene Megafauna. We then got so depressed that we fell asleep.
>>4474137On an unknown floorOf a tower from nowhereKid the Contender sleeps on a bed of grass
>>4474138And then he wakes up!
>>4474141You slowly rise from the ground, trying to remember all that happened to you a day before.You rushed into the tower, solved the cat lady's riddle effortlessly, got to the next floor, caught a bird, got caught in a trap, ate a bird , got thirsty, ran through the forest and then...
>>4474144And then it hits you! The pain of your grand failure rushes back to your heart!But enough of this! You can't sit here for the rest of your life, feeling sorry for yourself! It's time to continiue your quest!You have 15 Hits left in youYou are rested, hungy and thirstyYour mental state is: Still kinda shitty but a little bit betterWhat shall be done next?
>>4474149>Go to the waterfall and gets some water, maybe catch a fish
>>4474154This, and try all kinds of bird calls on the way there to attract the Megafauna
Shouldn't we track down the emu that stole the amulet or whatever?We can follow its tracks or some shit.
>>4474259fuck this emu, it declined our friendship
>>4474270thats what I mean, we should track it down than kill it because its bitch ass didn't want to be our friendwe hit two stones with one bird like this, we have food, vengeance and our useless artifact back
>>4474154>>4474178>>4474218Lead by your impeccable sense of direction and the increasing thirst you make your way across the forest towards the waterfallAlong the way, you try to track down the wretched beast, but see no signs of it. Finally, you can hear the waterfall raging just ahead of you! You push past some bushes and...
>>4474291...you found the waterfall!How do we proceed?
>>4474294drink water then ask how to get past this level of the tower
>>4474294Walk behind the waterfall cus theres always shit behind waterfalls. Probs treasure and shit.
>>4474294>look at the number in our writs lets see if it has changed>go to the building to your right and nock on the wall to ask permission to come in>then go through the wall
>>4474294hey, the little guys village. It seems we won't be able to avoid that "lost sister" drama after all. All good>Anyway, go drink some water. From your hands, don't get on all fours, you fucking barbarian
>>4474301also this. always check behind the waterfall
>>4474299>>4474305You approach the river, scoop up water with your hand and drink it with loud slurping noise! Just like the dogs in your tribe have taught you!You are no longer thirsty!
>>4474329*SHLORP SHLORP SHLORP SHLORP*
>>4474329>>4474332god damn it, it knew he will drink in some retarded-ass way>now check behind the waterfall. who knows what we can find
>>4474332>>4474303Just before moving on, you glance at the number - the "Numeral" - on your armYou wonder what is the meaning behind it...Wait, did it change since the last time you looked at it? Hm, you can't quite tell, you are just not a math kind of guy.Oh well!
>>4474347>>4474338>>4474308>>4474301But nevermind all that, your adventure sense tingling! You just KNOW that there is gotta be some kind of cool secret behind this waterfall!Water hits your body with immense force, but thanks to your potent indurance you can make it through!Aaaaand, there is a thing there! Some sort of ordinary thing! Some kind of mundane (but usefull) item! Completely not magical and very simple in it's design!What kind of item did we find?
>>4474347it's one less, we have spend here one day.so our number the days we have to reach the top.or... the worrying theorythey are the number of days until we are released from the tower
>>4474372>A very cool rope
>>4474381I mean we also slain 1 bird and passed 1 room.
>>4474372roll 1d61-A cool rock2-Chocolate3- a gold nugget the size of a pen4-a bucket, It's filled with salt water5-Pictures of you , many of them , all in compromising positions6-A human head , it blinks "Am i dead?
>>4474383I like this one. Maybe with a grapple at the end, to climb anything our autism desires
Rolled 2 (1d6)>>4474387OH SHIT ROCK TIME
>>4474387>>4474394let's have a moment of relief here for having dodged the dreadful 5
>>4474394>>4474389>>4474387>>4474383>>4474382>>4474372OhMyGodsYou have found something AMAZING, no, you have found something LEGENDARY!Before you, you see a BUCKET tied to a ROCK with a COOL ROPE!You can not believe your LUCK! Back at home you were only allowed to have one of these things, but here they are, all three, together, in a harmonious union you never even thought would be possible, and they are yours for the taking!You aquired the "Bucket and rock tied together with a cool rope" item!How do we proceed?
>>4474435>Talk to lady kobold>Ask her how we can get past this level of the tower
>>4474447+1>ask her about the purpose of mysterious and no doubt legendary artifact you just foundalso they are not really cobolds, thay are just manlets who wear masks
>>4474447Fuck yeah.>>4474462Yes but our unrivaled genius makes us unable to see some things.
>>4474462>>4474447You walk towards the small person, while still trying scoop up all your belongings."HOWDY! Would you happened to know the purpose of this mysterious and no doubt legendary artifact that I just found on the floor?OH! By the way! Do you know how to get to the next level of the tower?">also they are not really cobolds, thay are just manlets who wear masksWhat are you, some kind of kobold specialist? Some sort of kobold professor? We haven't asked them if they are kobolds or not, so they totally could be kobolds!
>>4474514>We haven't asked them if they are kobolds or not, so they totally could be kobolds!aye, fair enough
>>4474514*SNIFF* *WHAAa...* *SNIFF*You just now realise that there are muffled sobbing noises coming from this person.Wh-whaat did ya say *SOB* G-gimme a second *BIG SOB* She says, while sobbing. She then takes of her mask!
>>4474543aaaand to see what's underneath you'll have to tune in tommorow cause I got really tired today, hah!See ya guys after I sleep!
>>4474568probably a face. Have good night sleep, QM
inb4 it's a half cobold half human
>>4474514hey OP, how did your art style get so clean from one thread to the next.I'm comparing hands for example ,and its like you are not the same person
>>4474624Art is much cleaner. Did OP start using a tablet or something?
Wait is this the OP of the first thread? OP of the first thread named every single one of his files tegaki.png.
>>4474624>>4474630>>4474638I'm guessing OP started using an actual drawing program, not the built-in /qst/ one. The writing style is very consistent.
>>4474665and the humor is the same
>>4474543Oh, you'res the guy that we caughts yesterday... You now recognize that voice! She was one of three little guys from yesterday! The one that used to speak in Caps Lock, but then QM realised that a character that only speaks in caps is actually a terrible idea>>4474678>>4474665>>4474638>>4474630>>4474624It is me! I've started using Clip Studio. I am also slowly figuring out this whole art thing in general. Maybe I should start using a name or something
>>4475660W-well, GO AWAY THEN, I don wanna talks to you! Coz... Coz...
>>4475664 Coz my Bro is gonnas DIE! He is gonnas be sacrificed to the God Beast, and DIE and I'll never see him again! It's Lam's sister who was supposed to be this year's sacrifice but Lam didn't wanna loose his sister and asked my Bro for help because my Bro is the best personand he always helps peoples, and then we saws you coming out of the mountain and thoughts "Let's gets this guy to be the sacrafice!" and everything would have been fines!! But at the last seconds my Bro decided to lets you go and offer himselfs as the sacrafices insteads! Like, WHY THOUGH! We should have grabbed you and let you be gobled up by the God Beasts, WHAAAA~~~~Finished the little creature and went back to sobbing....how rude! She ignored your very important questions, told you her whole life's story like some kind of drama queen and then went back to crying! Sheesh!Oh well, back to the adventure!You are standing in the cave next to the plot, ah, I mean, next to the crying girl. How should we proceed?
>>4475686>If we beat up the god beast will you be our friend?
>>4475687+1, as well as>Will you help us get our FRIEND NECKLACE back?
>>4475686God Beast sounds sick.The best opponent we had so far was a bird, and we really need to get into this monster hunting thing.>Get the info on the God Beast from the sobbing plot girl
>>4475686>>4475687>>4475688>>4475696I think I basically understand what's going on here, the basic "Sacrifice to the God Beast" kind of deal, yep, yep. Look, little creature, how about this? I will slay this God Beast of yours, and YOU will help me get a magic amulet that got stollen from me? You say*and maybe also be my friend pls*You add, in a whisper.Now tell me more about this God Beast of yours!
>>4475699God Beast is crazy strong, and big, and long. And there's nothings something like you coulds do about it!My Bro have spend years trying to figure out how to beat it up and he said that even me and him both, together, couldn't kills that thing... And me and my bro are like, the strongest ever, so what coulds you do, huuh?As the girl finishes expressing her doubt in your God Beast killing qualifications, you suddenly hear another voice coming from the cave's entrance!Actually, that is not *exactly* what I said
Will we finally get to see the sword skills we apparently autistically trained our whole childhood on to the point that we have literal autism and zero friends?Or is this gonna be the part where we reveal we're dogshit at the sword too lmao?I can't tell which would be more fitting for the MC.
>>4475721dogshit with the sword more funny, but more dissapointingbeing a god in a actual fight would give kid at least some saving grace over his autism
>>4475712What I said, is that the chances of me and you beating that fiend are not 100%, which is why we can't fight it.Because if we try, and fail, then the God Beast will rampage and the whole village will pay the price of our failure. Good morning, sis.Oh, it's that guy! You know, that guy! What the heck is his name? What the heck are both of these little rascals names, actually?Weeell? Tell me!
>>4475721>>4475723Maybe we're a shit but our autistic rage overwhelms our foes.>>4475726Ding and Dingus
>>4475726>Bimbob and Dongle
>>4475726>Ferdinand and Umh>Kid can never say feernadont correctly
maybe we should roll for the names...
>>4475726>>4475751https://www.name-generator.org.uk/quick/ gave me Myla and Nathaniel
>>4475771nice names, will Kid be able to pronounce them?
>>4475726>>4475738>>4475746 BROOO!!!Sis.The girl runs to the guy and then they high five!The guy turns to you and speaks:I suppose introductions are in order. My name is Dean Ferdinand , and this here is Gus, my sister. I've heard your offer of slaying the God Beast. Listen. Don't take it as an offence, but I know your kind. People like you stroll through here now and then, all talking about some grand quest or some divine purpose - and I'm sure you are no different. You'll stand against the God Beast, you'll realise that you can't win, and then you'll run away, go to the next floor and continiue your "adventure" and we'll never see you again.It appears Dean have no faith in your abilities and even less faith in your resolution. What should you do? >>4475751>>4475771>>4475775>>4475771Those are good names! But too late! They are now Dean and Gus!
>>4475781>We'll defeat it with our super cool sword skills! We'll never run away!
>>4475781Do crazy pirouettes and show them our complex sword techniques so they know we're awesome and totally capable.
>>4475787How competent is he on this?
>>4475789Only one way to find out.
>>4475781>Do a serious chiaroscuro face and promise to protect everyoneWorks every time in exotic eastern cave paintings
>>4475785>We'll never run away! We are too smart to know fear!
>>4475785>>4475787>>4475789>>4475792>>4475798>>4475802>>4475805You pick up a rock off the ground...Not our super cool rock tied to a rope, a different rock
>>4475816And you throw it into the air!
>>4475832Then you make a single, powerful and precise swing with your sword!
>>4475869inb4 sword breaks
>>4475869And then another and another! With an insane speed and power you make a swing after swing after swing, striking the rock again and again!
>>4475874 more fanart for u
So we trained with fruit ninja? Sweet!
>>4475880made me chuckle/10
>>4475816>>4475832>>4475869>>4475874>tfw realize Kid was a genius savant legend of the blade all alongThe God Beast never stood a chance.
>>4475889oh god it's gonna be a sculpture, isn't it?
yeah, between all the riddle fuckery, befriending attempts, bird diving, pit falling and general nuclear autism we forgot that kid is a chad swordsman
>>4475896The Ferdinand siblings are speechless! This is your chance!You need a speech that will convince them in your resolution! Something that will fire up their hearts! Go for it!
>>4475919"I'm the bestest swordsman you've ever seen Fernando. Leave the Boss Monster to me."
>>4475919"See? I sword good."
>>4475919"Rip and tear, until it is done"
>>4475919"Sword go SHHWWWWK"
just continue to swing around your sword and make swishing noises
>>4475880By the way, thank you so much, anon, my sides were properly obliterated
>>4475955+1, that seem very in character
My name is Kid and I'm the bestest swordsman you've ever seen, Dean Fernando. I will defeat this beast with my super cool sword skills! And I'll never run away! I promise to protect everyone! I'm TOO smart to know fear!Now let's get out there and rip and tear, UNTILL IT"S DONE!
>>4476010>>4475994>>4475955AND THEN YOU DO SOME MORE SICK SWORD SWISHES SWISH SWISH SWOOSH SWOOSH SWIISH SWWISH You make swishing noises with your mouth as you swing your sword!
>>4476010I>>4476020oh kid, please never change!
>>4476020Have we convinced Dean and Gus? Will we overcome the God Beast? Will Kid ever put on a shirt? Will QM ever figure out how to properly use the Fill tool in Clip Studio???Find out tommorow, as we continiue our adventure through the first level of the WHITE TOWERRRrrr

>>4476035thanks for running!
>>4476035thanks for running OP!!!!
>>4476035You're a fucken legend, THANK YOU for running
Keep the favorites , change the ones you don't like.then make another pastebin.let's make an absolutely ridiculous list.https://pastebin.com/EBGCVyg5
>>4477250We can use this Forgotten Beast generator: https://perchance.org/fionjfcb4uStill, I expanded the pastebin as well: https://pastebin.com/S5DU9jGR(I like that one of the possible rolls is just an extremely fluffy cat)
>>4477250 and >>4477283Added some of my suggestions: https://pastebin.com/GvjHE2fk
>>4477313>https://pastebin.com/AXWfgLA8Top zozzle, I added a couple as best as I could on mobile.
>>4477333 > Not taking its divorce wellthat is really funnybut guys the idea was just keeping the best of the funniest, i just wrote a bunch of generic ones to fill. Don't be afraid to delete/replace the generic ones
>>4476035>>4476020Eventually you get tired and stop doing the swishes.You look back at the Ferdinands. Dean sighs, closes his eyes and takes a moment to think.And then he speaks!You know, I am not afraid of dying. And I thought I was fully prepared to give myself up as a sacrifice.But...>>4477333>>4477313>>4477283>>4477250Good stuff, you guys! We can use that one later
>>4477538The thought that after I'm gone the beast will still live, tormenting this village year after year, taking more and more lives - it enrages me.You are strong, Sir Kid, very strong. But even you can't defeat this monster. Alone, that is. But with you, me and my sister, together... I think we can do this. No! I'm sure we can do this!But before you agree to this, Sir Kid, I need you to understand that this is a trully deadly affair. There is no guarantee that all of us will live through this, and this goes for you as well. Are you really prepared to risk your life for strangers? Please consider, that you very well may die if we face the beast. And as a QM I can confirm that there is a real chance Kid dies if he fights the beast! No plot armor! What do we say to this?
>>4477550>We’re not strangers if you call me a friend :) Kids first friends?!
>>4477550>Pose as a team, cause shit just got real.
>>4477564>>4477553 Well, we won't be strangers if you call me a friend :)
>>4477586You'res funny, mister Kid!Finally exclaims Gus!You're a strange man indid, Sir Kid. But maybe you are exactly the strange man that we needed all these years...Says Dean, exhaling and smiling....hey! They didn't say no! That totally counts, right!?
>>4477592Yep. Now pose.
We did it boys time to kill a god beast and likely die
>>4477592LET'S KILL A GOD (BEAST)
>>4477640>>4477604>>4477592You pose, heroically and yell!LET'S KILL A GOD (BEAST)
>>4477667my boi has a thicc ass the hell
>>4477667>GO TO THE GOD BEAST AND KILL IT
>>4477667Alright! We don't have a lot of time! If we are killing the God Beast we must do this soon, before the village gathers for the sacrifice! We have an hour to get ready. I will go and prepare our stuff. You should spend this time wisely! Gus, guide Sir Kid around the village, but be discreet and then meet me in our shack in an hour!And with that Dean runs off!So! We have an hour to prepare for a fight for our live. And an hour is just enough time to do ONE thing! What should we do?
>>4477695GO GET OUR FRIENDSHIP NECKLACE BACK
>>4477695eatwe must be strong for the battle ahead
>>4477695>See if Gus can heal us or knows someone who can heal usI want to go into this with all our hits
>>4477699+1 lets eat onions and weaponice our breath
>>4477695Retrieve our friendship necklace!If an hour is not enough, prepare a farm animal stuffed with tar instead.
>>4477697>>4477709Unfortunately it will take much more than an hour to track down that Megafauna and get back out necklace. Perhaps it will take the rest of our life...>>4477715>>4477699You ask Gus if she knows someone who can provide us with healingHecks yeah I do knows somebody - me! I get into all kinds of scrapes all the time, and then I treats all my injuries myselfs. I'm basically a master healer at this point! You agree to let Gus heal you!...unfortunatly she is not a master healer. In fact, she knows absolutely nothing about medicine or treating injuries.So roll me a 2d6, boys! We gonna do this one PbtA style!
Rolled 6, 4 = 10 (2d6)>>4477754>Perhaps it will take the rest of our life...;_;
>>4477765okay Gus might not be a master healer but *I* am
>>4477765>>4477767Heck yeah, we don't need a necklace to make friends!
>>4477765Wow! I guess she is a master healer after all! All your injuries are treated and you are back to 20 Hits!And what happens next? Find out tommorow!Sorry that it's a short one today, boys, but tommorow should be a lot of fun!
>>4477776No problem! Thanks for running OP!
>>4477776Noice. I'm on the edge of my seat.
>>4477776Thanks for running!
>>4479632do not fuck the... child?... teen?how old are they???they don't behave like children, we do
You good QM?
>>4480000up to a week before a QM is dead anon, you know the rules
>>4480000quads checks he has also been doing a lot of updates daily with drawings,don't be surprised if he needs a weeks rest.
>>4479935Are the children or just smol? The bodies look pretty developed but the personalities seem a bit immature
>>4477776After getting all our injuries treated, you and Gus head out to the "shack" that Dean mentioned. Turns out it was a small house on the very side of the village - what must be the Ferdinand's home.Inside you find Dean praying in front of a makeshift alter.Your stuff is by the window, Gus. Go get ready for the battle.He says. Aye aye, bro!Exclaims Gus as she runs to her stuff and starts changing.Then Dean speaks again, this time addressing you!This axe belonged to our father, Sir Kid. Ten years ago him and another seven men attempted the same thing that we going to attempt now. They failed. All of them died and the enraged beast went on to take another 6 lives that day.Do you understand now? All these years I wanted to slay that creature, with all my heart, both for justice and for revenge. But I was afraid. Afraid to fail like our father and most of all afraid to cause more death and suffering.Sir Kid... I am very tired of being afraid. Let's end this sad story.>>4480000>>4480009>>4480141Sorry, guys! Got too busy yesterday! Don't worry, if I know I'm gonna disappear for a long while I'll let you know :3>>4479935>how old are they???who knows! we certainly never asked them
>>4480523>axe has a hilt and a guardI can't wait to see how he holds it.
>tfw never doubted OP would return>>4480523HI YAH, LET'S KILL A GOD (BEAST)
>>4480523You, Dean and Gus set out to kill the God Beast!Once you leave the village and reach the forest, Dean motions you to stop and speaks.The God Beast's lair is at the end of this path, at the foot of the Great White Stairs, but before we go there, let's talk strategy.Don't worry, I think I understand your whole deal pretty well, Sir Kid, I already know that complicated tactics will not do - I'll keep it simple:Your range and speed are far greater than ours, so it would make no sense for me and Gus to be in front - we will only stand in your way. Instead, we'll be behind you and follow your rhythm. I'm not an amazingly strong warrior nor am I as skilled at weapons as you are, but I am quite versatile: I have my father's axe, my shield and my bow, and I know how to use them well enough. There is also another thing... no, never mind that, I'd rather we not rely on it.Then we have Gus - she lacks skill or finesse, but her raw strength is beyond any measure. I know it's hard to believe, but you'll just have to trust me on that. As long as she has a clean shot, she can execute a devastating hit.Alright, Sir Kid, hope it's not too much to remember. We'll be counting on you out there and you should count on us as well.Let's do this!And you're off!In terms of the quest what it means is that during the fighting, instead of telling Kid what to do you guys can tell Dean or Gus to do something instead! Don't get them killed!Dean has 15 Hits and Gus has 20!
>>4480559Whoa that's a lot of responsibility. Here is my plan>Kid hit and runs to distract the monster>Gus crushes when its guard is down>Dean plinks with the bow and arrow
>>4480559As you approach your destination you can now clearly see that the spire you saw from afar does in fact have stairs on the side of it, reaching all the way to the ceiling of this giant chamber.You step closer and closer to the foot of the spire. From here you can see that it is littered with white stone columns. You can't yet see anything or anyone.The beast is most likely sleeping, as it does most of the year, but don't drop your guard. It can attack at any moment.With a heavy feeling in your chest and your new friends (???) right behind you, you step into the field....alright boys, it's time to make a trully horrifying creature with that wonderfull list you guys cooked up!Let's have 4 anons roll a d20 and see what the heck we get!1| Human | Bear | no tail | on fire2| Cat | Cat | Cat | can talk3| Raven | Penguin | Bird | extremely fluffy 4| no head | Another head | Another head| Breathes slime5| Canine | Worm | Fish tail | has wings 6| Banana | Bat | Bunny | Has its own podcast7| Paper bag | Monkey | Scorpion | Knows and intones the names of everything it sees8 | Deep fish | Centipede | Happy dog | Sheds constantly9 | Squid | Geometric | Metal | Telepathic10 | Cute girl | Mass of bugs| Tentacles | Emo11 | Kettle | Blob | Fire spout | Made of dust12 | Scary mask| Starfish | Crocodile | Alcoholic13 | Cow | Snake | Deer | Is a cyclops14 | Bat | Spider | Steel cable | Skeleton15 | Bunny | Gorilla | Human arm | Allergic to dandruff16 | Pig | Dragon | Pikachu | Generates electricity17 | Unicorn | Snail | Peacock | Doesn't have a shadow 18 | Gorilla | Rooster | Stingray | Not taking its divorce well19 | Bear Trap | Smoke | Zebra | Couch potato20 | Cupcake | Mantis | Corkscrew | Staff autism like Kid's sword autism

Rolled 14 (1d20)>>4480576based
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>4480576

Wait a second, if we rolled 4*2 it would just be a talking cat?
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>4480576
>>4480583>>4480585>>4480592>>4480601>a giant spider with a peacock flare and a human head and it's all made of dustWhat the fuck
>>4480601"made of dust" actually makes it a pain in the ass to draw and to fight. Can we understand that in a philosophical, Carl Sagan sense? Like, we are all made of stardust?
>>4480601>Spider peacocks>>4480592>>4480585>>4480583>>4480576And then you turn your head and you see it. YOU SEE IT. You thought you were prepared for anything, you thought nothing could fill your heart with fear.You thought wrong. The sight of the monstrocity fills your heart with deep horror.
>>4480618Can we blow it away?like spin the sword like a fan and kill it ?or do we use water and a brom?
>>4480620...You get a hold of yourself. It appears that horrible thing has not noticed you yet. You have an upper hand! The time for action is now!What do we do?
>>4480599while rolling at home i got bear trap /mass of bugs/ another headso a bunch of bugs dual wielding traps.I recommend you roll stuff, its a fun pass time
>>4480640>Charge at it and cut off it's legs one by oneIf we get rid of it's mobility we can destroy it from afar easy
>>4480646+1beware of getting stuck in the dust
>>4480640dean: shoot its eyes with the bowgus: wait opportunityyou: cut its legs off
>>4480646>>4480650>>4480640With a single, powerfull motion you charge at the creature and perform a powerful sword strike!You were aiming at the legs but... somehow the creature is much less solid when you expected! In fact, your sword goes through it like a knife through butter and you end up cutting the whole thing in half!!!
>>4480674Before you even have the time to celebrate your victory over the God Beast, the whole creature just... falls apart?It appears it was made out of some sort of dust. Actually, judging my color and how it looks, you think it might be the same rock material that all these columns are made of, just grounded into fine powder.Aye, Dean! I killed the God Beast.You yell to Dean
>>4480688Sir Kid, keep your voice down!! This was NOT the God Beast! It was just some disgusting stutue! The God Beast is...Dean whispers to you before falling silent abruptly
>>4480694>the God Beast IS the structureOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHONOOO
>>4480721...You have found the God Beast.You no longer have the element of surprise.The God Beast is hanging over you, motionless. It's time to decide on what to do.
>>4480674>478Uhhhhh guysWhat was the number on our arm?
>>4480762I know this is retarded, but>boop it
>>4480765+1>>4480764407263729 if we are thinking the same thing we must reduce it to 0
>>4480762>SWORD AUTISM GOOOOOOOOO
>>4480771Oh darn they're not matching. I thought that they might be related. I feel like the number's still important, though (right?) We can boop the snake, but we still need to command Dean and Gus.
So the god beast is one of contenders for the tower that either was turned into a snake or was a snake when they entered.
>>4480781>Dean;slowly move back while preparing its bow>Gus; Prepare to dodge how about this?
>>4480790OH I'm stupidYou're rightMaybe we can talk to it?
>>4480765>>4480771>>4480781Possesed by god knows what you are overwhelemd by the desire to... boop it? Boop it on it's nose? Really? Are you like, sure???OkayyyyI guess this is gonna be a short quest after all.You reach out your hand to boop the God Beast on it's snout.You can hear Dean behind you make an unintelligible noise, a sort of vocal mix of emotions: confusion, fear, anger, sadness and regret.
>>4480809Suddenly you feel a tingling sensation in your arm
>>4480813Then, just for a second, there is a ringing noise in your ears
>>4480816And then you hear a deep voice inside your head. It speaks to you slowly.Contender... Your... Name... Is ContenderAnd then, in an instant, a flash of a thought. You know the "name" of this creature. Not a regular name, but a sort of "true name' or a title - much like you are a Contender, this creature is a DevourerThe words escape your lips. You can feel some sort of recognition blink in the God Beast's eyes. It stays silent, now studying you with obvious interest.It appears that through the power of Numerals you can comunicate with this creature.What do you do?I can't believe you guys goofed your way into solving this part. I was fully prepared for you to just fight it without figuring this out
>>4480828The power of friendship solves everything!!>Introduce ourselves and say we come in peace>Ask if it's hungry>Ask if it will stop eating the villagers, and if it wants something in return for doing so
>>4480828What are you talking about QM? Of course Kid is going to autism his way to victory.
>>4480828>>4480832Oh and>Tell Dean and Gus not to attack, it's okay (for now)
>>4480828reproach to Devourer that he is not supposed to interfere with the floors mechanism and eating people living here is damaging future contenders
>>4480842... wait, have there been previous contenders or are we the first to hold that specific title
>>4480854I'm pretty sure we're one of many. We got marked by our tribe's shamans as a contender I'm sure other tribes and things sent contenders too and there have been contenders in our tribe before us.Also I'm guessing these little Kobold people are descendants of contenders too.
>>4480828You give Gus and Dean a sign that it's all good and you got this under control. It seems they are too shocked by what is happening to protest.You turn to the creature and bombard it with questions!Hi! Hi! Hi! I'm Kid! Are you hungry? Do you wanna eat? If you are, can you stop eating the villagers, please? Big please? I'll do anything you want just please don't eat the villagers, okaayy??
>>4480832>power of friendship solves everythinglooks like people already forgot about the emu
>>4480897shhhhhhhhhhhwe just need to find it again and then we'll befriend it!
working theory;the condenders that Dean mentioned, did kill the Devourer .But he, as the Sphinx, is part of the floor so it cannot be killed permanently.He sees the people living here as sons of the previous contenders, so that's why he demands a sacrifice.so they may rise up to the challenge.we just need to convince him that the people here are part of the floor and he won't keep eating them.we just need to make this theory into something Kid can understand, otherwise is brain will overheat
>>4480880Hungry... Yes... I am hungry... I want... one of those little ones...You... You are climbing the...tower...Right, I remember now, I was climbing the tower too, because I... Wanted something... Then I came here... I was so hungry and there they were... The most delicious things in the world... Had myself a feast... Went to sleep... And when I woke up, they were offering another one for me... Been so long ago now...For a second you can sense some sort of confusion or maybe anxiousness in the calm voice of the creature. Then it continues.These little mice are so wonderfull contender... So delicious, so filling and so eager to be eaten... Trully I need nothing else in this heavenly place...What should you say or do?
>>4480911tell it no more free food or else it'll face sword autism power
>>4480914that would ruin the surprise attack.just do the classic of ;"okey, but consider that">and point behind them>then you stab
>>4480910how do i delete this bullshite, im to sleep drepive for this
>>4480911>You are a contender. This is not your place. You lost sight of your goal a long time ago and are now parasite to this place. Stop or face my sword autism.
>>4480911>>4480928>>4480911So that's how it is...I understand now. You were just like me. Climbing this tower. But then you lost the sight of your goal. You got stuck here, on this floor and became a parasite of this place.This will go on no longer, Devourer. Stop it or face my sword.
>>4480952I...You...Don't know what you are talking about... This is what I...I am here because...HUNGRY... I am HUngr.....The creature suddenly falls silent
>>4480961I remember now, Contender. I was a small little thing back then. And I had a dream. I wanted to become something special.A serpent of legend. You know the kind. A snake that devours a sun. A kind of serpent that brings the end of the world. Or a serpent that encircles the world and is a big as an ocean. I wanted to be just like that. A snake of myth.And so I climbed this tower for at it's top, all wishes come ture. Floor by floor. Decade by decade. Towards my goal. It was tiring, Contender. You can't imagine how far this tower goes.And then I came to this place. It's not just the little mice, Contender. It's the temperature - it's just perfect for me, too perfect. And the air. And the moisture. Everything here is perfect for me. Don't have to look for warm places, don't have to hunt for food.Don't have to move at all. Just sleep. And eat.
>>4480987This place.This whole floor. It's a trap. It's a trap that was made just for me. And I fell for it, Contender...there is a crushing sadness in the Devourer's voice.What do you do or say?
>>4480998Invite it to climb the tower with you.Also if possible, ask what it knows about this place: its origins, purpose, whatever it has found out during all these years
>>4480998"You can still achieve your dreams of being a mythical snake, lets leave this floor together."also ask if it wants to be your friendI can't believe power of friendship may actually work, was honestly expecting another emu disaster.
>>4480998>>4481001>>4481002What will Kid say to the creture? Will he fight the Devourer? Or will he really try to befriend it despite the fact that it killed and ate possibly hundreds of people, including the father of two people who are literally standing behind us???Find out on the tommorow's episode of White Tower! Because QM is about to pass out, haha
>>4481012Thank you for running, QM!
>>4481012>will we really try to befriend it despite the fact that it killed and ate possibly hundreds of people, including the father of two people who are literally standing behind usYes
>>4481012Thanks for running
Shit, I missed a crazy session.
>>4480987> A snake that devours a sun. A kind of serpent that brings the end of the world.I don't think this is a nice snake and I dont think we should help it towards its goals.
>>4481349We can convince it to encircle the world and be as big as an ocean instead.
>>4481352no, it's a Devourer. it's bad. Let's satisfy it's hunger with a few inches of cold hard steel so it can sleep forevermore.
>>4481349It's a snake dude. It's like a monkey wanting to get all the bananas or a grizzly bear get rid of anyone that could bother it. Just because it's smart doesn't mean it's not an animal.
or should it be a few feet? I'm not good with retarded American measurements.
>>4481368A foot is about the length from the ankle to the knee give or take a little and there are twelve inches to a foot.
>>4481368A sword is about a foot long (12 inches).
>>4481385Are you crazy? More like 35 inches. And if it's a two-handed sword like ours, all 45.
>>4481349"Don't worry, you will be a snake of legends. Mine to precise">stabs it in the eye
>>4481365yeah but if he..she...it completes the tower it gets granted a wish.
>>4481027>>4481001>>4481002>>4480998Despite the circumstances, you can't help but feel pity for the creature. And something else as well.Maybe this is just more of your longing for friendship. Or maybe you just identify with this creature and it's story. Or... mayhaps this is some inherent quality of your character, that even you didn't know existed. But whatever this impulse is, you follow it, and speak to the creatureI-it's not too late, Devourer. Leave this place! Come with me to the next floor and you can continue your quest! We... You can still get through this, I'll help you!
>>4481486The stand silent while looking at the distance. Despite the complete lack of emotions on it's snout, you can feel it is thinking very hard about something.You... I... I'd like that very much, Contender... Yes... Let's leave this place behind
>>4481488But before we leave, ContenderSpeaks the Devourer as it turns back to you.I am awfully hungry, Contender. Haven't had a bite to eat for a whole year, I believe. Let me have a moment to eat and I'll be ready to join you to the next floorThe whole creature is moving and winding up. You can feel the ground vibrate as the muscles of it's body are becoming tighter. The Devourer looks at you... No... It looks past you, to the two people that are standing behind youThese little ones are just perfect, Contender. Don't worry, I'll be done quickly.You hear Gus speak to you from behind your backEhm...Misters Kid? I think it's about to do somethings??Then you hear Dean's voiceWhat did it say, Sir Kid? What should we do?His usually calm voice now sounds more than a little concerned.Something is about to happen. Before it happens you can do or say something, but you only get one chance at this.How do you proceed?
>>4481494>NO FUCKING EATING PEOPLE ANYMORE!>Jump in front of the midgets and point our sword at the snake
>>4481494Don't eat these two, they're my friends. We should find more food in the other floors
>>4481494>>4481502>>4481548With a speed of lightning you turn around and dash towards your team mates!
>>4481566And in the same motion you turn around, facing the creature with your sword drawn. You successfully put yourself and your sword between the Devourer and your party!NO!You yell!DON'T eat these two! No more eating people! There must be plenty of...
>>4481567You stop before finishing your sentence.Something is wrong. You felt the creature tensing up ready for a strike but something is...Before you can finish the thought you hear the cold, low voice of the Devourer inside your headYou are a fool, Contender. Perish.
>>4481570You feel something big and heavy heading towards you with an immense speed from your right, just outside of your vision. It is too late.You suddenly remember that snakes are very long and generally have tails!...Someone roll a 2d6 to see how well we deal with the impact.
Rolled 3, 3 = 6 (2d6)>>4481573You guys HAD to resort to violence immediately huh, this was our one chance to solve this peacefully.
>>4481575I'm pretty sure the implication of >>4481570 is that the Devourer tricked us.
>>4481579Yeah, because we threatened it.If we kept negotiating normally maybe this wouldnt have happened.
>>4481597If we kept negotiating normally he would've just eaten those two before we finished speaking.
>>4481573As the serpent's tail connects with your skull, your brain shuts down for just a moment and before you even understand what happened you are flying through the air.You hear Dean yell something as the siblings prepare to fight.As you fly through the air, you suddenly have a realization. This is a gigantic snake of immense strength and human intelligence with decades, possibly centuries of combat experience.The Ferdinand siblings have no chance.
>>4481609How lucky! There was a column in your path and it helpfully broke your fall and slowed you down!I lied, it wasn't lucky, it was very painful..You take 6 Hits from the whole ordeal and now have 14 Hits left in you.
>>4481613You lie on the ground, trying to recover from the devastating hit and get your thoughts in order, when...
>>4481616...Something looms over you.
>>4481620HAVE YOU LEARNED YOUR LESSON, KID THE CONTENDER?...well, did you? How do you answer?
>>4481623>trying to teach us that friendship is useless and not to rely on power of friendshipFuck your lesson, defy his lesson.WE WILL KEEP USING POWER OF FRIENDSHIP UNTIL WE DIE.
>>4481623Use the power of friendship AFTER you actually have friends? Stop trying to befriend huge animals with nothing more than a touch? I get it (but don't know if anons do)
>>4481623>RIDE THAT FUCKER, SAVE THE SIBLINGS, KILL THE GOD BEAST.
>>4481623I DON'T CARE ABOUT ANY LESSONS I HAVE TO SAVE THE FERDINANDS
>>4481623"give us our monkey you treacherous fowl "
If OP really wants an answer probably don't trust centuries old genocidal snakes to be able to change their ways
>>4481707nah, the true answer is not everything can be a friend. sometimes you just can't have everything.that being said there's one thing that gets close>grab the bird by the neck and use it to beat the snake to death
>>4481718Or not to try to force friendships and instead let it happen naturally.
>>4481623You close your eyes and think about all that happened in the last couple days, searching for the some kind of meaning or lesson in that chaotic mess.
>>4481738>>4481718>>4481707>>4481641I understand now. You can't force a friendship, they happen naturally. Not everything can be a friend, especially giant animals. And you shouldn't trust centuries old genocidal snakes...Friendship is something I only heard about but never experienced for myself... I suppose I was bound to make some mistakes.
>>4481775THAT IS CORRECT, KID THE CONTEDER. YOU SEE, FRIENDSHIP IS A PRECIOUS THING. BUT SUCH PRECIOUS THING CAN"T BE EAS
>>4481776>>4481662>>4481649While the DAMN beast is distracted, you LEAP into the air and grab it tightly by it's LONG, STUPI NECK!I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR YOUR LESSONS, YOU TREACHEROUS FOWL! I HAVE TO SAVE THE FERDINANDS! GIVE ME BACK MY AMULET!
>>4481779As you tightly squeeze the neck of the foul bird, the fiend projectile vomits into your face with loud burping noise.There is something hard that hits your face among the vomit.It's your amulet!!! You got it back!Congratulations, you solved my "Make Giant Bird Vomit" puzzle.What should you do next?
>>4481799Op, do you think we have any chance of using the bird as a maul?
I strongly suspect it was actually the amulet talking through the Megafauna. But it befits kid to not get that.
>>4481808mount it and ride it into battle. it was the fastest thing we have ever seen right? Faster than snake reflexes?
>>4481799>Ride the bird into battle and slay the god beast>Or if that doesn't work run over and distract the god beast from the ferdinand siblings
hey OP are you sleeping well, you normally post at UTC 23:00.you have been posting at odd times all day.You fine?>>4481814+1
>>4481814>>4481812>>4481809>>4481808As you're about to hop on the creature and figure out how to ride it into battle, the Megafauna lifts into the air and, without moving a muscle, flies away, far, far into the sky, until it disappears from your sight.You shed a tear. You know it is going home and you understand that you could have never tamed that beautiful beast. This is what the two of you were from the very beginning. Just two ships, passing each other in the wild ocean of life. Maybe one day you'll see him again, or maybe this is your final goodbye.You don't know the answer, but you know that you're immensely thankful for your time with this truly scarily existing existing pleistocene megafauna...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjUVTEExfBg&ab_channel=VariousArtists-Topic...what should you do next?
>>4481837Yeah, I'm all good. I'm out of a job at the moment, so my sleeping schedule is all over the place.>>4481814>>4481812>>4481809>>4481808Also sorry guys but it'd be a pain in the ass to paste this freaking thing into every single frame of the battle, and I know you bastards would want to keep it forever. The megafauna have gone to it's home planet
>>4481851>Thank the bird for everything it’s done and then go charge at the snake with our sword autism and hopefully get it away from the Ferdinands
>>4481856> a pain in the ass to paste this freaking thingunderstandable
>>4481856fair enough OP>we got a +1GUYS WE MADE A FRIEND!>>4481860and backing this up
>>4481851Use friendship amulet, surely it works now that we have friends.
What's left to do? Don our amulet, grab it, close our eyes and gather strength for a split second, then head back into battle. We will not fail our first two friends!
>>4481876>>4481887>>4481875>>4481860Are Ferdinand siblings okay? Will Kid be able to overcome the God Beast? Will he figure out how to harness the secret power of the amulet by pressing the top button on it's body?Find out tommorow! Around like, UTC 18:00 or so! Tune in to see the finale of our adventure on this floor!
>>4481905Thanks for running, OP!
>>4481905Thanks for running
>>4481905see you later
>>4481905You say goodbye to the bird and head back to help the Ferdinands! You climb your way through the field of pillars, the air is now heavy with dust.You ready yourself for a fight! It's time to finish this!
>>4483592You quickly arrive to the field of battle! Looks like the God Beast is on the attack. It is seizing up Dean, perhaps getting ready to lunge at him, while also launching a tail smack against Gus! You also see your sword a little bit to the side of the action - you must have dropped it when you gut tail punched by the giant snake!What should you do?
>>4483600>Yell at the snake to distract it from our friends>Run over and grab the sword
Do a sick flip! Like, jump really high and far, twist in the air to launch the sword from the floor, and with one more twist drive it deep into the treacherous head of that... that... NON-FRIEND!!!
>>4483600>Grab the sword, run up the fallen pillar behind it, climb up onto the standing pillar it's fallen onto, jump to the next pillar to the left, jump onto the snake's head and stab itI recognize a boss fight arena setup when I see it.
>>4483600>>4483616Though I really think we should also yell at the snake.
>>4483616+1here's a posible plan B "The beast's hide is too thick to be pierced from the outside! I must cut through it from the inside.">cannonball with your sword through his mouth>stab it in the heart, from within
>>4483600>>4483616 makes sense
>>4483608>>4483609>>4483616>>4483629In a single powerful leap you launch yourself into the air!
>>4483686Mid flight you call out the snake!HEY YOU, Y-YOU...NON-FRIEND!!!The snake is surprised and distracted!
>>4483689You grab the sword as you fly by it!
WIth that single motion, you fly through the air at an incredible speed, all the way to the column near the beast!
>>4483695Before hitting the ground you quickly spin around in the air defying all laws of physics and land on your feet!With an incredible speed, you run up the first column and then jump towards the one that is the closest to the God Beast's head!
>>4483703And then, with a final motion, you launch yourself off the column, leaping straight towards the Devourer's head, like a giant man shaped rocket made of swords, pants and vengeance!Someone roll a 2d6 +2 !
Rolled 2, 2 + 2 = 6 (2d6 + 2)>>4483706
Rolled 3, 2 + 2 = 7 (2d6 + 2)>>4483706
>>4483713Can we get a trips bonus OP :^)))
>>4483750what a cute sock puppet
>>4483753You fall towards the open maw of the beast, unable to stop
PLAN B! PLAN B!!! I REPEAT, PLAN B!!!
Slice it's neck from the inside as we go down
>>4483768And just like that, Kid the Contender have failed with his quest, getting himself eaten by a giant snake.Shocked, Gus and Dean will now face the God Beast and surely fail and die.Wow, everybody! Sure didn't think this is how this quest would end! But here we are! There is really nothing we can do about this, huh.
>>4483774Yeah haha very funnyPLAN B
aw c'mon OP, stop fucking with us and do the sword from inside thing. Please?
>>4483777>trips of keki don't know what this means
Don't worry guys surely OP is making us wait just to accentuate the tension
>>4483790you are starting to sweat anon
>>4483803...And just like that, Kid the Contender have overcome the first floor of the White Tower!
>>4483806Really made me sweat for a second there QM
new title unlocked: "kid the red"
and it only took us two threads to make the first floor of a tower that stretches beyond the clouds!
>>4483806>>4483806And that's it for me for today, boys! I had a lot of fun! I hope you guys did too.I think I definitely made a mistake of planning too much stuff ahead of time this time. Next thread and next floor gonna be more free form and open, so that you guys have plenty of chances to go wild! Gotta take care of some business this week, so the next thread is gonna be on Sunday. Hope I see you then and there!And thank you guys so much for playing! Doing these quests have cheered me up a lot this past week, I really appreciate it :)
