It's much easier than you thought it would be- The soulfire does feel a part of you, for some reason. . .For a moment, you wonder why it's serpentine; it would be a lot more thematically appropriate if it was some other creature, like a bear or something. Maybe when your soulfire awoke, there was something related to it- Something about the swamp brew you'd drank, perhaps. . .Someone raps on the door, almost in a panic, and Raziel opens it without waiting for a response. She grabs your shoulders, and looks directly into your eyes; obviously very slightly drunk on swamp brew. She looms close to you, and in a tiny voice, speaks."Help me." She warbled. "Ezekiel is into *human* women. What do I doooo?"
>>19569312"That's...... weird.How did you learn about that?""Are you sure you're right? Perhaps you misunderstood?"
>>19569312"love him and accept him for who he is."
>>19569312mfw I read it as>"Ezekiel TURNED into a *human* woman. What do I doooo?"
>>19569378we should at least pretend to emphasize
>>19569381Tell him to shapeshift back. That would have been an easy one, they've already got a brother who turned into a lizard woman.
>>19569391Stop being a bigot, fuckhead.
"That's. . .weird." You say."Yes! Very!" She said."How did you learn about that? Are you sure you're right?""Well. . Kristoph and Ezekiel were talking. . and I overheard- I'm sure I didn't misunderstand." She said. "I- I don't even know if humans have the right . . parts that work with kalak. . parts, and and-"
>>19569422Oh no, the subject shifted into something indecent.Blush, act nervous/fidgety and try to change the subject.
>>19569422Well... you are shapeshifters, that doesn't really seem like a problem.
>>19569422Parts? I'm 13 and what is this?
>>19569422>>19569440"Um... eh, hah... umm... Maybe.. umm"Be totally lost what advice to give due to the account of the uncomfortable subject and that we don't know anything about this."Maybe he doesn't mean it that way?"
You blush as you realize what she's saying."Um. . . eh.. ." You fidget slightly, very, very uncomfortable.". . ." She just looks at you, both talons on your shoulders."Well. . you are shapeshifters." You say. "That doesn't really seem like a problem."She blinks."I'm an idiot- why didn't I realize that *first*?! Of course, he probably spent the last five years in a human form or something. That would explain it."
>>19569508Try to get images out of your mind and fail.Keeping up this conversation on this topic will keep us uncomfortable and thinking of indecent thoughts."Y-you should make sure that you didn't misunderstand and, ah... umm.. I think Marigold would be able to help you better than I... though that would mean telling her about your.. umm.. secret."
>>19569508"One of your brothers spends his days as a femal half-snake lizard thing, referred to by others as "mother", and you're surprised by this?"
"Y-you should make sure that you didn't misunderstand and, ah... umm.. I think Marigold would be able to help you better than I...""No need. I know what to do now! Sober up, and then shapeshift!" She claims. "Thank you, Ishelda!" She raises a talon in the air, and then leaves, closing the door behind her.Well. . that was strange.
>>19569572Try to go to sleep now, perhaps failing due to THOUGHTS
Oh boy, it's twincest time!
You lay down, and sigh. Now it'll be hard to get to sleep. Speaking of which, how *do* kalak-Someone knocks on your door. Thank god you didn't finish that thought. You open the door, and Marigold's standing there."May I... May I come in?"
>>19569597"...Of course." Get out of bed and start preparing some tea.
>>19569610It's middle of the night. God damn, can you stop thinking with your teapot for once?>>19569597"Yes, come in.did you want to talk about something?"
>>19569580definitely failing due to THOUGHTS.We require the assistance of Marigold
>>19569644Speak of the devil...
"Of course." You say. "Did you want to talk about something?""Yeah. . " She teetered on her heels for a bit, then sat down on the foot of your bed, absentmindedly patting Grayson's head. "What. .What happened to my father?"
>>19569673Is her father someone special that we should know what happened to him?"I...Your lands were one of the first ones to fall. I don't know what exactly happened to your father but..."
>>19569673Probably was ripped apart by demons. He might still be alive, though. And if he is, he's suffering horrible and unimaginable, neverending torture.
>>19569698Damn, son.Don't say it like that
"I... Your lands were one of the first ones to fall." You say. "I don't know what exactly happened to your father but..."". . . but prospects aren't good." She said."He was mostly likely ripped apart by demons." You say, and she nods."I- I assumed-." She said. "... Is there no hope for us?"
>>19569754"As long as we're alive, of course there's hope. We may have lost our old home, but that doesn't mean we can't find our own place in this world."
>>19569754"I don't know.I try not to think about it and focus on matter on hand."
>>19569760>implying we won't lay siege to the demons and reclaim our homeworld
"As long as we're alive, Of course there's hope." You say, in a low, passionate voice. " We may have lost our old home. . but that doesn't mean we can't find our own place in this world."She takes a deep, ragged breath, and then nods, screwing her eyes shut. From what little you knew about her. . she isn't as strong as you are."Can I.. sleep in here?" She asked.
>>19569783No need to give any false hope like that at the moment is all I figured. Plus, who knows what kind of a state it's in at the moment or if it's possible.
>>19569808"Of course, You can snuggle up Grayson! I'm sure he wont mind."
>>19569808Naturally. Good thing Impulse is gone - otherwise I bet Marigold would have been a tasty hostage for her to take.
>>19569808"Of course. If you need something fluffy to hug, Grayon will probably not mind."
>>19569827And then she ends up clinging to Ishelda over Grayson.
"Listen, Marigold...I hope I'm not going too far by saying...I consider you a sister."
>>19569845Well Ishelda is the only thing left of her world. It only makes sense.
"Of course." You say. "If you need something fluffy to hug, I'm sure Grayson won't mind."Grayson harrumphed as Marigold clambered onto him.It'll be even harder to sleep, now that you no longer have your ursine pillow to yourself...And then Marigold clings to you, instead.The next morning, you're completely unsurprised when Raziel is in human form, still carving the dragon skull."Um. . hello." Marigold says, waving to the blue-eyed woman. ". . Who are you?"Raziel turned to the girl, and gave her a smirk. "Raziel. I shapeshifted."". . Oh. That would do it."Marigold turned to you. "How do you handle all of this magic stuff? Back home, the wizards hardly ever did any magic."
>>19569809Not to mention to do so we would need to:-Scour the world clean of all demonic taint-Close all portals permanently.-Regrow life and make the world habitable again.I think we would probably need to tap directly into the power of a star to do this by ourselves.
>>19569881"But I did.By the way, is your Talent only healing centered or can you cast anything you want?"
>>19569881"I guess it's because I wind up doing a lot of the magic stuff myself. Turns out that's my talent."
>>19569809>>19569895Besides none of that matters since the most important thing we lost cannot be replaced, namely the people.
>>19569881"eh, you get used to it.Besides, I always could cast whatever I wanted. Remember that dress I conjured for the ball? Our best mages would need a complex ritual to do something like that but I just will it into existence"
"I guess it's because I wind up doing a lot of the magic stuff myself." You say, as Ell walks over to the control crystal, and sends the Jormungandr into motion. "Turns out that's my talent. By the way, is your talent only healing centered, or can you cast anything you want?""I- I don't know." She said. "I only know that I can heal."Suddenly, her eyes widen, as if she realized something. "I forgot!"She ran over to the edge of the ship, and then went down on both knees. . and started speaking to herself, under her breath. You'd forgotten how religious she was, as you overhear her reciting the Knight's litanies. . .but you do notice how she glosses over all of the combat-based ones.
>>19569943Well, wait for her to finish, perhaps join in with to show your respect.
>>19569943See how Raziel is doing while Marigold is praying. Didn't see say it usually takes a lot of time to get used to a different shape? I can't imagine the switch from talons to fingers being very easy.
>>19569987we could whisper to her "So... did you notice any change in Ez's behavior since you changed?"
You wait for her to finish. . and then she starts with the Scholar's writings, next. You sigh, and approach Raziel."How are you doing?" You ask. Raziel cusses."Not well." She says. ". . he won't notice if I give myself claws, right?"She whispered a spell, and talons sprouted from her fingertips. "This should work a lot better." She said."You notice any change in Ez's behavior since you changed?""Well, he refused to enter my cabin when he saw my form, so it must be working." She said. "He hadn't done that before."Kristoph comes by, and pokes a thumb toward Marigold."What is she doing?" He asks.
>>19570018Prayers, to our Gods.
>>19570018We should probably see what Ezekiel thinks of this once we've finished speaking with these two.
>>19570037nahthat might make him suspicious
>>19570046Well we should probably talk to him in general. I think it's been awhile since we've really had a 1 on 1 chat with him. See what's going on with him and if there's anything he might want to look in to.
Did Jormungard absorb the Anti scrying and muffle spells, by the way?
>>19570073That I can get behind. We could gradually drive the conversation towards his sister and learn about his feeling that way. It wont feel forced that way.
>>19570083>Not particularly- the invisibility does work as 'anti-detection', but it isn't specialized."Prayers." You say, and he raises an eyebrow. "To our gods.""And you don't pray to your own gods?" He asked you.You give him a level look. As if you could pray to gods that never helped you, nor their believers. As if you could pray to the Knight, who didn't come down and save your people from the demons, or the rogue, who could have befuddled the monsters with his cunning, or even the scholar, who could have given your people advance warning. As if."Lady? Are you okay?" Ell asks. "Your serpent. . ."You feel the spell flame coiling around your arm, trembling- reacting from your anger.
>>19570092Take deep breath and calm down.>"And you don't pray to your own gods?" He asked you."No, our gods died when they allowed our world to fall, and all of its inhabitants to be killed."
>>19570092I like how we're turning into something like a sister of battle, harnessing our rage as fuel source.Anyway, snap out of it. "It's nothing."
I suppose soulfire reacts to my emotions then, like my golems. What does it look like, Ell?
>>19570111You're talking out of your ass.Through Marigold we know that they or at least one of them existed and nothing points to that Demons can do harm to divine beings.
>>19570092We (me and our gods) don't exactly see eye to eye.
>>19570092"I'll pray to the gods when they do something worthy of my admiration."
>>19570092Calm yourself and say: "Our world burned, and our gods did nothing."
try to calm down, while saying that the gods died alongside your world.
>>19570126>You're talking out of your ass.My suggestions on Ishelda's point of view on these things are as valid as anybody else's until OP choses to include them in his post or not.>Through Marigold we know that they or at least one of them existed and nothing points to that Demons can do harm to divine beings.She thinks that one of them exists and sent her to this world. You're talking out of your ass if you say that makes anything certain.
"Our world burned, and our gods did nothing." You say, a bit more bitterness in your voice then you intended. You close your eyes and take a deep breath, and you feel the soulfire slumber once more."It's nothing." you tell Ell. "Soulfire seems to react to my emotions. What did it look like?""It. . got mean." He said. "And pure white- like when Fellwind swung that crystal blade around. With the sparks and everything."
>>19570158Your both crazy if you think people's anuses (anii? Anus?) talk!
>>19570164So you and Bubbles seem to be getting along.
>>19570126You're talking out of your ass.Through Azariel we know that humans are able to create portals, nothing points to that 'rogue' being a god.Even that person pretty much said he wasn't a god. What are you, 12?
>>19570174>he doesn't have a talking anus!
>>19570164"Sorry Ell. we should talk to Zeke
>>19570164"Well... I suppose Fellwind was quite an angry fellow most of the time."
>>19570190I dunno, from Marigold's retelling, he did act much as a trickster god would. Well, maybe not trickster, but I can't think of a better term at the moment.
>>19570174Anuses is the correct plural.
>>19570226Why thank you, kind anon.
>>19570190>In his defense, one of the Rogue's sayings were recorded as "I'm not really a god- I just pretend to be one and the Knight and Scholar *believe* me!">Other than that, he's the standard trickster god archetype."Sorry, Ell. Are you and Bubbles getting along?""Indeed." Bubbles says, and Ell nods."He's been helping me with those arcane cannons. They're not done yet. . but with these flowers, we should be able to install them when they are done."Marigold finished her prayers, and got up, walking over to the group."Sorry about that." She said to you. "I forgot to do that at dawn- I have to, or i'll forget the litanies- they don't have the books around here."
>>19570237"Why not just write it down?"
>>19570237You could write them down, you know?
>>19570237Why not write them all down?
>>19570237"It's alright"I agree that we should talk with Zeke>>19570246Ishelda, solving problems with such simple means that people don't think of them!
>>19570190In fact, through all of the razak we know that shape shifting is possible, and throught the existence of humanoid beings, a 'person' in a hooded robe could be pretty much anybody. Even a person from a dying world, willing to sacrifice whats left of it in order to allow life to continue elsewhere. Or somebody like Azariel, who is probably psychotic, even if he is a genius.>>19570226Why are we discussing semantics of shit holes?We should just ignore the trolls.
"Why not just. . write it down?""But my penmanship is awful." She said. . and looked somewhat miserable.Kristoph chuckled. "I can do it for you." He says. "I'm a knight- penmanship was one of the many skills I had to learn as a squire.""Really?""No, I learned because I was going to be the high lord. But yeah, I will write it down for you."Marigold clasped her hands together, with a look that plainly said 'glee'.
>>19570282"You forgot the squee, Mar"
>>19570282Solving all the problems, no matter how small.
>>19570296Well, some one has to.
>>19570282let's I help Zeke with dem cannons. If we can, that is.
"You forgot the squee, Mari." You say."Oh, right!" She says. Her eyes shine with that same exact look, she clasps her hands together. "Eeeee!"Then she grabbed Kristoph and tugged him away."Wait, he was going to be a high lord?" Ell asked. "Huh."Ezekiel steps out from belowdeck, and he has a large, thick, worn down tome in his hands. He waves to you and Raziel, and then looks down, using the morning's light to read.
>>19570347Ell, the elf is working on the cannonsZeke, the bird is.... doing whatever.
>>19570357"Whatcha reading Zekey poo?"
>>19570357Of course he was going to be high lord, everyone on this ship turns out to have some sort of mysterious royal lineage, remember?
>>19570357Yes. Instead he's on a flying boat as a knight to a queen of a dead world, other people who are on boat here. Funny how that worked out.zeke, good morning.
>>19570391Along with the descendant of Eidolon, Two Kalaks from a world long dead, a Troll of Wonder
>>19570439>Troll of WonderSpeaking of Kell, are we going to try something with him soon?
"Of course he was going to be high lord." You say, unfazed. "Everyone on this ship turns out to have some sort of mysterious royal lineage, remember?"". . Right." He says, and nods. "Morning, zeke.""Good morning, Ezekiel. what are you reading?""Evocation." He says. "I need to brush up before the twins get here."
>>19570459"You think they would come here?""Ell said he would make the ship teloport-proof." turn to Ell. "Speaking of which, how is that working out?"
>>19570459Anything you fancy?
>>19570459You think they're coming? Should I make tea?
>>19570459"Allow me to demonstrate my swag evocation." And then wind elemental bitches were all up in our junk.
>>19570459"Are you so sure they will?"
"You think they would come here?""It's better to be safe than sorry." Ezekiel said."Ell said he would make the ship teleport-proof." you say, and turn to him. "speaking of which, how is that working out?""It's not." Ell said. "I needed the world key, and it would be a permenant addition.""Nothing lesser than an artifact could stop those two." Ezekiel said. "But I need something that doesn't go through those damn portals. Even my astral firebolts don't work."
>>19570525To Ell: "Ah, right. Sorry."
>>19570525Could we not simply create a spell that doesn't go through them?
>>19570525You need a sort of magic canceling bolt. Something that can punch straight through the portals.
>>19570525"Could you think of a specific item I could conjure for this task? Perhaps Bubbles can help too?""Preferably not an artifact, too many of them in one place is dangerous"
>>19570525How exactly do those portals work? What size are they? Is there any way you can have it work not in a projectile sense but simply, for example heating up an area.
>>19570525What about HELLFIRE? Didnt you say HELLFIRE eats magic? Could it be possible to punch through the portals with that?
rolled 38 = 38>>19570525Cast "Create Wand of Portal Closening"!
>>19570525WHAT ABOUT INVISIBLE BOLTS! Make them able to target and shoot them in arches so they don't go straight!
>>19570570Wait till they answer this question >>19570555We'll have better result if we know what exactly we need
"Could you think of a specific item I could conjure for this task? Perhaps bubbles can help too?""I don't know enough about the portals to tell you." He said, and shrugged. "How exactly to these portals work?" you ask."Well, he just raises both palms, and creates a portal in each palm. One leads to the other, it seems, so when I throw a fireball at him, he just redirects it back at me. It's annoying.""Hmm. . . How about invisible bolts that fire in arches?""That. . will take a lot of work for me, but it should work." He said. "Probably a long cast time, too."
>>19570584And invisible elementals! New tactic could be summon lots of elementals and then summon some invisible ones behind the back of the targets and make them stab from behind!
>>19570606Maybe I could make you an item for that purpose? So that casting those arching, invisible bolts is easier?Can you think of anything? I'll try to make it for you.
"Maybe I could make you an item for that purpose?""I. . don't do well with foci." He says. "Using my palms are much easier than a staff or rod. It just doesn't fit me well." He adds. . then pulls out large scraps of parchment. "I'm going to have to stitch a bunch of spells together for this."He started copying down the arcane runes and symbols from his tome, spreading his wings as he hunched over.
>>19570638Ishelda is basically a magical bullshit vending machine that runs on ideas.
>>19570687Well, I guess we wont be able to chat with him right now since he is busy.We should tell Raz that she might want to try to help him or something
>>19570687>"I. . don't do well with foci." He says. "Using my palms are much easier than a staff or rod. It just doesn't fit me well." Well.... we COULD make something that deals with that problem too
>>19570687Well have fun Ezekiel, I won't be much help given that I completely ignore magical theory. Find Raziel and ask what that was about last night, who she thinks Ezekiel likes.
>>19570687can we grant people signature spells? Like, ingrain a invisible arch lightening spell into one of Zeke's arms?
"Well, have fun, Ezekiel. I won't be much help, given that I completely ignore magical theory."He chuckled. "Yeah. . fun." He says.You look for Raziel, and find her at the dragon skull again, still carving. "This totem will be really complex." She says. "And I won't be able to carry it around. Maybe I could set my staff to activate it remotely."
rolled 65 = 65>>19570738oooooooo, sounds interesting, we have to ask him first though.
>>19570753Hey Raziel, stop talking about ghost dragons, it's time for girl talk. What happened that made you burst into my room in the middle of the night? Give me all the juicy details.
"Hey, Raziel, stop talking about ghost dragons; it's time for girl talk." You say.She raises an eyebrow. "Oh?""What happened that made you burst into my room in the middle of the night?"Her ears go red."I-I just heard Kristoph and Zeke talking about some things.. that's all." She said, stammering. "Aren't you still a chick? You're a bit too young for this, aren't you?"
>>19570775I keep imagining Ishelda saying girl talk like an angry black man saying real talk.
>>19570753We should hint to her that she might want to try help Zeke in his endeavor so she could get closer to him.
>>19570792"Umm... depends what they were talking about..."
>>19570792Just keep on going, if it gets to be too much I'll cover my ears. I have to get used to this sort of talk some time.
"Umm... depends on what they were talking about." You say."Well, they were talking about the noble women at the ball. . " she said. "And they were talking about. . " She shook her head, and her cheeks went red. "Nevermind, nevermind."
>>19570873"Oh..." blush intently and then change subject >>19570805
>>19570873Look, as far as i have seen, boys and men talking like that is universal. No matter which race they can always relax, kick back and talk about that sort of thing. I think it is the way males bonds.
>>19570907We're just barely 13 AND a high-born. No, we do not know that.
I guess since we're royalty it's rather normal that we're not fazed by incest.
"Oh..." You say, and blush profusely.Marigold banged the door open, a book in her hands. "I got the Knight's litanies done! Kristoph was interested in them, so he made a copy for himself. . "She looks at both of you, and trails off."What's going on?" She asked, a mischievous look on her face."Nothing, nothing at all." Raziel said.
>>19570971"Y-yeah, nothing at all." Obviously not fooling her
>>19570951Gotta keep that royal blood strong.
>>19570971"Mar... You're a pervert." then giggle.
>>19571000what?she didn't say or do anything perverted
"Y-yeah, nothing at all." You say.". . ." She isn't fooled. "So, which of you are trying to seduce someone? And who is it you're trying to seduce?"Raziel covers her face."Zeke." She says.
>>19571057"Umm..now that you now, perhaps you can give advice to her?"
>>19571057"Speaking of that, how are you doing yourself on that subject, Mar?"
>>19570999>keeping the bloodline strongWell, it worked, didn't it?
>>19571104mfw first time we end up sexing someone blackout'll start with us saying "Wait, why do you only have..."
>>19571057First we give Raziel a hug. Then we tell her that she just explained an awful lot.
>>19571104Not historically.Our blood is strong but we don't know how much incest is in our family tree.
>>19571129I'm not sure what you're trying to say but I was talking about our Talent
>>19571145Ah yes, Charles II. A really beau.
>>19571129I don't follow. Honestly.
>>19571156>male and female genitals, among others.
>>19571172oh yeah, he's inbred alright.
"Um. . .Now that you know, perhaps you can give advice to her?" You ask.". . You're completely out of your depth, aren't you?" Marigold says, with a wicked grin. You give her a pitiful look."Yes, yes I aaam." Raziel warbles. "I'm only a hundred."
>>19571212Spit the tea.
>>19571212FLIP THE TABLES!
>>19571223We're not drinking tea.
>>19571212"Hundred? How old is that in human years?"
>>19571212"And I'm only 13! You're the per- knowledgable one in these matters."
rolled 49 = 49>>19571235Does it look like i care! WE ARE MAGICAL!
"And I'm only thirteen!" your cry, gesticulating with your arms.". . what." She says. "But you can walk, and- and talk and everything.""Uh. . " Marigold bites her lip. "We humans become adults at sixteen years old?"". . Oh. That makes a bit more sense, now." Raziel said. "We become adults at eighty, and our eggs can take. . . five to ten years to hatch."
>>19571283Did she think we were an adult all this time?
>>19571283Thank goodness, a different topic."Do you have to keep them warm with your body for the whole time?"
>>19571288I'd swear she said "Aren't you just a hatchling" to us, but maybe it was last thread, or maybe it didn't happen at all, but I'm sure she didn't think we were an adult all this time.
"Do you have to keep them warm with your body for the whole time?" You ask, glad to latch onto a different topic."Not particularly. There's just a spell we use to keep the eggs safe. Sometimes, if one's not ready to have children, we stasis them for later. That's why our family is all different ages, because their mothers put stasis spells on them."
"That's... handy.""We're a very long lived, magical race. Although we're. . physically weak, compared to the rest of you brutes.""I'm not a brute!" Marigold said.
>>19571408We're not all brutes, all of us have our bad examples but there are plenty of lovely people among us.
>>19571408"Me neither" pout
>>19571408"That's it, no tea... well, no swamp brew for you anymore" >:(
>>19571436I think the fact that we recently brained someone with a brick kinda disproves that.
>>19571461That does NOT make us a brute.
>>19571459>That's it, no teaCome on man, that's too harsh
"Me neither." You say, and pout."Well, when I was around fifty, I was your size." She said. "And I probably couldn't swing the sword around like you did when you were training with Kristoph."
>>19571408"What is the life expectancy of Kalak?"
>>19571488"Not even with magic?"
>>19571488"I think you just simply never tried."
>>19571488"That... That doesn't make us BRUTES. We're just... different."
"That... that doesn't make us *brutes*." You say. "I know, I know." She said, and chuckled. "It was hyperbole. No need to get offended.""What is the life expectancy of kalak?""Well. . Azariel is reaching the end of his rope, and he's around a thousand years old." She said. "So I'd guess that long."
>>19571488"Well, Rikar is very light"
>>19571526"Besides, Rikar is a magic sword."
>>19571544"That's... quite a lot longer than a human's. Most might live into their 70s, I think."
"Well, Rikar is very light." You say. "And it's a magic sword.""Speaking of magic swords." Kristoph says, looming behind you. "Do you care to continue training, lady?"You notice he has a book on his hip, now. No doubt the Knight's Litanies; mostly small sayings about honor, glory, combat, and righteousness.
>>19571617I have a feeling we're going to get a lot of converts... Or rather, marigold is.
>>19571617We were having some really private girl-talk so I think it is appropriate to say:"Where's did you come from?""Anyway, yes, I would like to but not right now."
"Where did you come from?" You ask."And what did you hear?!" Raziel said, pointing her talons at him."I. . just came up. from belowdecks." He said. "I didn't hear anything except about the sword. Why, you talking about *boooys*?" He teased."Anyway." You say. "Yes, I would like to- but not right now." "Well, there's little else to do until we get to Neptune." Kristoph said.
>>19571673"Say, Kristoph, I was wondering, what can you tell us of the gods of this world?">>19571643I wouldn't be entirely surprised.
>>19571673"We're having a private talk." And push him away"Anyway, before we started talking about ages and stuff, we were discussing something.""Raz, I think Marigold could help you out better than I, so you should work it our with her." But we don't leave them alone because Ishelda is very much interested in that talk too.Actually, we should go into captains quarter's (I assume Ishelda uses it) and talk there, with door locked.
>>19571720No, we don't want to talk about that shit at ALL IC. Let's escape with Kristoph.
>>19571761Why not? You realize that talking about BOYS and LOVE and ALL THAT FLOWERY stuff is like lifeblood of young girls?In fact, choosing blade training over that kind of gossip talk would be incredibly ooc
>>19571761I'm with you.>>19571783We can ponder boys later. There are adventures & kingdoms to plot now, and being able to defend our-self in armed combat will help with that.
>>19571809>We can ponder boys later. There are adventures & kingdoms to plot now, and being able to defend our-self in armed combat will help with that.Hey, I don't disagree with that but let a girl forget all that shit for a moment and just be a girl for a while. do you want her to go around fighting all the time without ever letting off steam?
>You WERE a young girl.>Now you're a young girl who has had to grow up way too fast."We're having a private talk right now." You say, and push him away."Raz, I think Marigold could help you out better than I, so you should go work it out with her."Raziel looked dubiously at Marigold. . who smiled brilliantly.You catch up to Kristoph. "So, now we can escape." You say."What about your private talk?""They're privately talking." You say, as Marigold and Raziel descend belowdecks.". . I see." He says. "You ready?"You nod, and draw Rikar. It shines a brilliant violet.He draws his own practice blade, and leaps forward.You deflect the blow, and twist away, swinging the other end of the magically dulled blade at him. His sword is already there, parrying your attack, but you don't let up.>>End of thread 24>>My twitter is at @futureexabyte>>And I'll answer questions. . .way way later, possibly tomorrow. I can't stick around right now because of the goddamn heat in here. my system might start melting.
>>19571832>>You WERE a young girl.>>Now you're a young girl who has had to grow up way too fast.Meh, biologically she is still a little girl.And that was exactly what I was talking about, she needs to step back once in a while and forget all her problems.... actually Ishelda DOESN'T even have problems. She made them herself by taking up shitload of responsibility she had absolutely no reason taking.She needs to be a little girl once in a while and have stupid, unproductive fun or the stress is going to take her.
>>19571832>>Now you're a young girl who has had to grow up way too fast.Exactly.That's why she needs to know the stuff they are talking about.
>>19571871>>19571888Don't worry. Marigold will 'educate' her properly in the ways of love. Forgetting entirely that the warm fuzzy pillow is actually a sentient being, a bear. >Or maybe Exabyte swings 'that way' and Grayson will be involved in the act.>I'm okay with this.
>>19571989I think there would be... size issues there.Let's not go down that road.

rolled 96 = 96>>19572110>Heh, bear toyLike I said, I'm okay with this. Also, I'm sure there is discrepency between size of particular bears. This one 'just happens' to fit well with humans, if a little big.>Don't worry Ishelda will get used to it, and will learn to love it.>Very quickly. >Rolling for that.

>>19572243Dunno, Exabyte said that she's an adult >>19571832
>>19572242>>19572218Does that mean we make love to Grayson, and not Marigold?I'm so confused.
>>19572268Apparently the dice will it
>>19572258Grow up mentally and emotionally, numb nuts. She's still only been alive for 13 years, making her 13 years old.>>19572243Hey, I am not supporting it. I might be amused by it, but I'm not supporting it.Also, Exabyte said, "No relationship hijinks." several (or more) threads ago.>>19572268I honestly don't know.
Just remember that the Kalak can polymorph into tentacle demons.
>>19572313I. You. What. GODDAMNIT.
>>19572313Oh yeah, transformation spells. No need to fight guys, we can give ourselves enough orifices for everybody!
>>19572293>Grow up mentally and emotionally, numb nuts. She's still only been alive for 13 years, making her 13 years old.I am of conviction that one can become an adult only mentally and emotionally and physical age has absolutely nothing to do with it. Do you call a 26y old manchild an adult? Don't know about you, but I don't.>>19572313>>19572324>>19572334Actually..... Ishelda can polymorph too.Wait, if she is grown up emotionally and mentally, she could just shapeshift into a grown female body. PROBLEM. SOLVED.
I thought Raziel was our future waifu? Now I'm confused.
This is turning out worse than Mahou Shounen Quest.
>>19572409I doubt we can keep the creepy up for over 100 threads.
>>19572381So am I. I thought we were going to after a bad day go to her for comfort and end up asking her if she could teach us about love.Or we don't have any romance because we're a little girl and we're too busy having HIGH ADVENTURE with our stalwart companions.

rolled 29 = 29>>19572425thank you for saying this again so the bad people will stop the evil...
>>19572381Perhaps once she's over/given up on making hatchlings with her brother.>26y old manchildWell, technically, yes, but it's a similar thing. She isn't "grown up" in all things, just as the "manchild" isn't.>>19572409Not my fault, I swear to god. I've been against loli-sex from the start of everything.>>19572425Ahahaha. Thank you.
>>19572442> so the bad people will stop the evil...Oh you silly man.
>>19572425WELL YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE SAID THAT SHE WAS GROWN UP AND LET HER HAVE GOSSIP/BOY TALK >>19571832YOU OPENED THE GATES MAN! IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT!
>Nobody mentioned the serpent that is powered by emotions and acts on our subconscious.I'm not sure if I am disappointed or relieved.
>>19572508And it seems to be rather impressive, too.
>>19572528>>19572508>Fun fact; the whole serpent thing has a 'shamanistic, magical' reason for being in that form. It's related to how they burned Ghujj's body, and did the whole funeral ash-swamp-brew thing.
>>19572528>Ishelda 'experimenting' with soulfire.> whyboner.
>>19572508You just had to bring it up, didn't you?
>>19572540Is the tattoo on our arm permanent? Are we going to regret it in X years when times have changed?Also, are we still allowed to have a healthy GIRL CRUSH? or is that banned too?
>>19572598>Magic is dramatic that way- it fades when you're not using soulfire.>But if it ever really becomes an issue, it wouldn't be hard to shapeshift it away.
>>19572540Of course. We actually ingested part of Ghujj's body, right?It would make sense that he would want revenge against people that would do his family wrong, and would want to help the person that saved his family member that would otherwise have died with him.
When we drank that Swamp Brew and talked to Grayson, were we hallucinating, was that actually what he was saying?
>>19572449>Well, technically, yes, but it's a similar thing. She isn't "grown up" in all things, just as the "manchild" isn't.Well, yesbut, I'm going to bring your attention back to >>19571832Exabyte said she is grown up for that thing too, since he posted that when we were considering if Ishelda needs to take part in girl/love/boy talk explaining that she does not need to because she grew up fast.So by GM's word, she is an adult and everything is fine. Now we just need to polymorph>>19572425Well, to be honest I, personally, was joking about the whole thing. Not the part where I said that Ishelda should take part in stupid boy/gossip talk, because that is perfectly in line what she would do, since girls that age talk about that stuff and without it being dirty or, worse, smut. Now that I think about it, boys do the same too (I mean talking about girls and stuff like that).It wasn't me who brought up the "bear toy" though, I mean, come on.protip: I'm disagreeing that Ishelda is grown up in any way. She is still a young kid and should be allowed to do young kid stuff.
>>19569422Wait a second. That was actually zeke talking to kristoph about him being into raziel, wasn't it? Yay for crazy interspicies love triangles!
>>19572665>That was what he was 'harrumphing', you just understood it because of magical lizardman ritual.>>19572704>Actually, that was in the context of 'talking about boys are a young girl's lifeblood' sort of thing- it wasn't me saying she was mature enough to handle an adult relationship- she isn't.>>19572720>Kristoph's and Ezekiel's talk was mostly 'did you see the high lady's ass at the ball? I mean, *look* at dat ass' and then 'that's my sister, you sick fuck'.
>>19572893>>Kristoph's and Ezekiel's talk was mostly 'did you see the high lady's ass at the ball? I mean, *look* at dat ass' and then 'that's my sister, you sick fuck'.So why did Raz think he is into human females?
>>19572920>Because there were no nonhumans at the ball- Ezekiel was exclaiming the attractiveness of the noble women.
>>19572957Well there were some nonhumans at the ball.What did the nobles think of the Lizardman we brought anyway?
>>19572957And so Raz went down the MISUNDERSTANDINGS path.
>>19572976>The nobles actually assumed it was another one of kristoph's tricks. They danced with Nahzit, and actually found him quite charming.>>19572985>Not much of a misunderstanding- Ezekiel *is* into human women.
Is there any fan fictions of this?
>>19573034So much for the continuation of the Kalak species.
>>19572704I will fully cop to the "bear toy" comment, and believe me, I regret it.I'm not against Ishelda doing girl things, but at the same time, the way we've played her so far, is that she wasn't really interested in such things (particularly boys/relationship stuff). With Marigold around now, I could see it changing though.
rolled 91 = 91>>19573034awww...we really need to go back there then...and find some way to demonstrate the fact that Nahzit isn't a trick...
>>19573070>:With Marigold around now, I could see it changing though.Marigold teaches us about love. Physically.
>>19573034So Ezekiel is into human women, Kristoph seems to be attracted to Raziel, at least in her human form, and Raziel is in love with her brother, doesn't find humans attractive nor does she realize how pretty she is in human form. What a beautiful clusterfuck of a love triangle.
>>19573109>>19573070>>19572704>>19573058Can we please not continue this, guys?
>>19573058>well, someone by the name of 'Exanibble' DID write a bit involving Bubbles and Ishelda...
>>19573122Now we just need a human female that tickles Zeke's fancy who is into Kristoph to complete the cyle.
>>19573122Marigold has a girl-crush on Kristoph. Bunch of guys want Ishelda to take up advanced lessons in lesbionics with Marigold.
>>19573106no need. we weren't there to prove anything, or to troll.nahzit will and cerulean city will be fine.
>>19573150GOD DAMN I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT THAT!
And while this massive romantic twenty car pile up occurs Grayson will be sitting off on the sidelines and quietly harrumph. Honestly at this point Ishelda should have at the most a few crushes here and there.
I'll write smut, but only with Exabyte's permission. They're his characters.
>>19573150And then you immediately took away Bubble's body permanently and crushed my dreams.
>>19573170No. Grayson will be 'Harrumph'ing into Ishelda.>Or maybe Marigold.
>>19573267The two aren't mutually exclusive.
>>19573267"My 'Harrumph' is 'Harrumphing' on its own!"
>>19573284OH GOD MY SIDES SOMEONE HELP MEI CANTBREATHE
>>19573211>Go ahead- it won't be canon, so it really doesn't matter how much you screw up my characters' personalities.>>19573256>I feed on your tears- remember the time in NFCQ I killed Dave and wrote a BAD END from Amy's perspective?
>>19573302>Go aheadAnyone have any suggestions as to the content? Given that this is 4chan, I'm really not above writing anything.>I feed on your tearsYou and LandingGear both.
>>19573322Ishelda helping herself with soulfirentacles?
>>19573322I'm more of a vanilla guy. Give me Ishy x Mary.I think, just to be safe, you should post whatever you write in pastebin in case an overzealous janitor or mode walks by
>>19573340Sure, why not. I'll post it at the end of tomorrow's thread.
>>19573322Raziel/Ishelda.Ishelda goes to her seeking comfort, reassurance, and romantic advice one cold night. Ishelda isn't sure if she's pretty and wants Raziel's help as she's the prettiest woman she knows.
>>19573322Grayson x Raziel in bear form (harrumph)Raziel (any form) x her resurrected spirit dragonThe Heart x BubblesKyvann x ALL THE DEMONS (he was tortured, right?)Eidolon x Impulse (how? He's Eidolon, he doesn't have to explain shit)
>>19573392Admit it, you're looking forward to it
>>19573364VEry much seconded.
>>19573392hey, I know that guy, his name is Kevin Kuhlken
>>19573416Should I do this instead? Raziel comfort or masturbating soulfire? Vote now!
>>19573454Raziel. We can even have Raziel saying that she isn't at all pretty without a beak.
>>19573454BOTHif not, then this >>19573364
>>19573454BOTH AT THE SAME TIME
>>19573496I like the way you think. I'll do it.
>>19573454Oh god this is far worse than Mahou Shounen Quest....Masturbation
>>19573382Jesus, what? No need to make Raziel such a slut. Though The Mind x The Heart sounds amusing.>>19573364>>19573359>>19573340I find myself okay with these.
You people are horrible.Also, seconding >>19573492
>>19573516A point in our favor is that we're only doing it in post thread fucking about instead of throwing it into the quest proper. Also I think the writer will be throwing it into a pastebin at the end.
>>19573521>No need to make Raziel such a slutYes there is. She's the only female shapeshifter we know. She's a girl who can be anything you want. Anything. And I want scenes for all of those things.
rolled 69 = 69>>19573322can you do some set in the distant future? like a 4 year timeskip?I wouldn't mind that...
>>19573561Indeed I will. This is strictly fanfiction for the purpose of shits and giggles, and to kind of get it out of our systems.
>>19573521>"I'm cruxing, I'm cruxing!"
>>19573574Maybe in another story, yeah.How's this for a general outline:Ishelda has her first wet dream, and wakes up to find her soulfire touching herself. She doesn't understand what's going on, but she acts on instinct and lets it continue into her first orgasm.Conflicted, goes to Raziel for help on what to do. Raziel decides to teach her personally.Sound good?>>19573609Oh god I lol'd
>>19573609dear god yes
OP, I hope you realize this is all you fault.
>>19573624That sounds good, make sure Ishelda is confused and embarrassed as all hell when she goes to Raziel and says that she went to the most beautiful woman she knew for advice with this.
rolled 91 = 91>>19573645he does, but then again this is 4chan>>19573624let me say that stories are fine, I just have a problem with the underage thing...it's a personal moral thing...
>>19573645>I'm. . I'm sorry.>But it's all in good, clean fun.
>>19573711Hey, I never said I wasn't enjoying this.
>>19573382Oh, and Venerable Queen x Azariel hate-sex.
>>19573609Exactly! And they're both artifice intelligences, so it's not like they'd be able to do it physically. I guess... it'd be a lot like cybering.Mind: *images stroking your svelte crystalline lattice,* "By the Makers, you are beautiful."Heart: *images warming under your telekinetic touch, the uncolors of my aura coruscating in uncertainty.* "Y-your just saying that because you want in my crystal."Mind: *images pulling you closer, brushing my metal casing against your sharp facets* "No, it's true. You're the most beautiful artifact I've ever seen."I don't know what the fuck I'm doin'.>>19573570I wish I could come up with an argument against that, but I can't.
>>19574067>Here's the argument against that- with shapeshifting, GENDER CEASES TO MATTER.
>>19574086Trust me, that's not an argument against it.And, strictly speaking, it's biological sex that ceases to matter, not gender.But let's not get in to that.
This post thread chatter.Even if I wasn't on my phone, I wouldn't be able to post a picture that accurately represents my facial expression.
>>19574086No it doesn't. The mind doesn't change. Raziel acts like a girl, Zeke acts like a guy and Ishelda acts like an emotionally scarred child. Raziel's by far the best option for my tastes.
>>19574147>I'm curious- how does Vithriel act?
>>19574309The one Kalak who while born male is currently a Lizardman Mother, the one who lent us the lizardmen.>>19574285We haven't really interacted with any Mothers aside from Vithriel so it's hard to say. I'm guessing that if you spend enough time in a form you grow more and more used to it, until it feels natural. Uriel could probably change genders at the drop of a hat, everyone else it might take a while to get used to, or they might never feel comfortable.I'm guessing Vithriel is pretty used to it by now, and thinks and acts pretty Motherly most of the time, but still has some Kalak tendencies.
>>19574285Not sure really, we've only had two conversations with him and we don't have a clue what's normal for lizardwomen.
>>19574386There's also the fact that he's trying to pass as a Matron (Mother, whatever), so it would only make sense for him to act like one.
