(( Apologies for lateness! Things happened. ))(( http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Holy%20Grail%20War%20Quest For previous threads.IRC is #HGWSeattle @ Rizon.Twitter is https://twitter.com/HowDoIShotTrip ))You are Legion (Nicknamed by yourself as Bob), familiar to Luke Morcai. Your Master is capable of powerful but time-consuming Circle Magic, which can replicate many spells but requires a great deal of preparation and time, And of the magic he has decided to term Theft. Theft allows Luke to steal anything, so long as it is possible in a physical matter with his hands. You are both embroiled in the Great Grail War, which is a Holy Grail War with four sets of servants.Your Servant is Astolpho, knight of Charlamagne, Rider Class. Stat page here: pastebin.com/qJw29xd7LAST TIME:A MEETING WITH CID HIGHWINDA MEETING WITH MERLINA DISCUSSION WITH DOOMGUYA THEFTAN ESCAPE
I rise from my bed, holding my forehead. The events of the previous day have left me shaken, uncertain of many things. A blonde maid looks over at me, then bows and leaves - tea is on the table with a note, and Astolpho sleeps beside me.
>A DISCUSSION WITH DOOMGUYI wasn't aware discussions involved dead servants, dismemberment, rockets getting fired at us and us flying up to the space needle.First things first - we check the state of our (immediate) allies, Arry and Jeanne. It's still a bit too early to press the issue with Jeanne so we'll give her a bit more time for that, make sure Arry is adjusting to FEELS and sensation alright... then we see about breakfast.
>>20388541Also, we forgot the bit about some skullfaced motherfucker (baron samedi?) reportedly 'killing' servants and jacking their souls.
>>20388564Well, read the note. And drink tea, I guess. If Ganon wants us dead, I see him just sending us to orbit, not quietly poisoning tea.For now, there is a to-do list:- fill Ganon in. We didn't tell him about the whole "Earth is the vessel" thing, IIRC. And our pact with Merlin.- contact Merlin and tell him about everything that happened. While I have no doubts he can deal with Doomguy one way or the other, better for him to be prepared.- deal with Doomguy. He must die somehow. I don't feel comfortable knowing he's after us.- find the Skullface. Now that we are in open opposition to Rulers anyway, his plan actually may be more beneficial for us than before. We must proceed with caution, though. He probably has his own agenda.- save the world.
>>20388641Agreed. After Arry's adjusted to being less...mutilated, Master, you should talk with her and find out her backstory. Share parts of your life story with her if she's reluctant to open up. We know almost nothing about her, other than the fact that Slim Jim's her Servant and she has some emotional...issues.I'd be more comfortable knowing more about Arry before you ask her how she feels about a harem, Master Luke.
>>20388809"So, what do you think about foursome? ...By the way, what was your last name again?"Yep, it'll go well.
>>20388837Alonetime between Arry and Luke is a good idea. Being stupid is not a good idea. We've sheltered her, been nice to her, not killed her when she scared the fuck out of us, apparently found her (at least) one lover and we've given her the biggest. hug. ever.I think it might be time to know her story. What happened that she had such... issues.
>>20388920$10 says Arry had an incredibly shitty homelife.For now, drink some tea, and read the note, Master. Talk with Arry later as time allows.
>READ NOTE'Luke. It's come to my attention that you may want to contact David. If this is what you truly want, it can be arranged. Simply write yes or no on the back of this paper.'>>20388920>>20388809>>20388641Looking around the area, I knock on Arry's door. She answers, and lets me in. She's dressed in pajamas still - a long tee that goes to her knees. "What is it?" she asks, her hands sliding along her arms slowly. "I've been wanting to ask you a few things. About your past." she shrugs. "Nothing really important..." she says quietly. "Average upbringing for a mage." she says evasively.
>>20388994The note, I'd say write yes. I know what an "average upbringing" for a mage is like. It's miserable in different ways for almost every one. You can talk to me.
>>20388994"Oh dear... you don't really expect me to believe that do you Arry? An average upbringing doesn't leave you mutilated and well slightly out of things. I want to know more about you and anything you want to know about me you can ask. I also want to know how you're adjusting to your 'new' senses. Please, be honest and open with me I swear I won't betray your trust."Write yes on that note, we want to meet david.
rolled 1 = 1>>20388994"You don't need to talk if you don't want to. I... understand how difficult it could be to discuss your past... For many reasons. But by this point we were through a lot together, and I would like to know more about you. Feel free to ask questions back, it would be only fair."As for contacting David... Not sure. You don't exactly have a leg to stand on in a conversation with him and I doubt he'll give you a friendly handshake. Let's flip a coin.1 is no,2 is yesshould work
>>20389104We need to see david. He may not be particularly happy with us, but he is vital to the things we need to do.
>>20388994"Look, Arry, I'll be blunt here. I like you. A lot. I also like Jeanne and Astolfo a lot. If at all possible, I'd like us all to be happy. Together. For that to happen we need to all know and trust eachother. I want to get to know you. The real you. And I want you to know the real ME as well."The note isn't going anywhere and you shouldn't be deciding shit like that on your own. Talk to your group/possible harem after breakfast. Arry first.
>>20389137>The note isn't going anywhere and you shouldn't be deciding shit like that on your own. Talk to your group/possible harem after breakfast. Arry first.Yes, I would like to hear their opinions as well.
>>20389137All of this, but don't push Arry too hard if she still won't talk about herself.
>>20389137"Look, Arry, I'll be blunt here. I like you. A lot. I also like Jeanne and Astolfo a lot. If at all possible, I'd like us all to be happy. Together. For that to happen we need to all know and trust eachother. I want to get to know you. The real you. And I want you to know the real ME as well."She stares at me for a while. "My mother held the Crest." she says quietly. "My father was... not in the family long. Mother liked to pick men up and drop them." she says. "When I turned eighteen, I was instructed in... In our magic. The longer time went, the less I... felt. My boyfriend and I broke up, I started to do the only thing I could still feel. And when I abandoned all feeling, I gained the Crest." she says. "My magic is special. It makes things into nothing. Makes perception fail. By becoming nothing, we can... in theory ... touch Akasha." she sighed quietly. "My life lost direction when Mother died. When I entered the Grail, I had it again, and I did not want to lose it. But..." she frowns. "I.... I just don't know."
>>20389373"Arry... when you entered the grail war, what did you want to wish for? I can understand what it's like to lose the path you initially intended to follow, sometimes it is for the better though - I wanted to wish to be the greatest magus of all time, now though I think I'm willing to settle for saving the world and the people I love in it."Give Arry a hug, tell her you don't ever want to see her go back to being 'numb' like she was before, that you're so happy to see her 'whole'. Tell her she's beautiful inside and out.
>>20389373"The Grail War changes all who enters it. Great and terrible things happen around us every day... mostly with us... And the perspective to have your wish granted... Well, it does make you start asking questions about what is truly important and what is not. It is normal to be confused and unsure... Even without Merlin meddling into our lives... I entered this war to become the most powerful magus to ever live... Now, though? Now the only thing I can be sure of is that I have people I care about and I don't want to lose them."
>>20389373"We're all adrift in unknown waters here, you know? I entered this war with a wish to become the most powerful Magus ever. Then Astolpho happened, and you happened, and Jeanne happened and everything went crazy in ways I never expected. Still, attempting to save the world from certain destruction seems like a pretty solid direction to me. That's what I'm holding on to. For now, at least. After that... I did... bad things to get where I am today. Terrible things. I've hurt a lot of good people for bad reasons, and I want to redeem myself, make it up to them as best I can. Once that's done... who knows? In the end, the only direction that should matter to you is the one that makes you and the people you love happy."
>>20389573"We're all adrift in unknown waters here, you know? I entered this war with a wish to become the most powerful Magus ever.

In the end, the only direction that should matter to you is the one that makes you and the people you love happy."She nods quietly, in deep thought. She appears uncertain, halfway to a decision of some kind. "When you're dressed and ready, there's something I need to address with the group." she nods, and I move to my room again, looking at the note. A couple things bother me, namely that this note even GOT here. I don't know who it's from, even! I sigh, scratching my head as I drink the tea.There's a loud noise in the front hall, making me look up. Stepping out the door, Ganon is holding the front door closed with several of his maids. He looks back at me, briefly, then holds the door against another assault.
>>20390222Let him in, hunker down. Ganon goes to his Evil Overlord lounge and waits for the green-clothed hero to surpass all the obstacles and puzzles.Should he arrive, Ganon escapes and collapses the damn dungeon on him.
>>20390222Well, fuck.Quickly ask: "Doomguy?"After confirmation, gather everyone and take a note. We may need to flee and get a boat via hypnosis or charisma A. IRRC, Doomguy can't swim.Also, you may want to use Fatman for this. Just be sure nobody watches. Best case scenario: he kills Doomguy. Worst case scenario: Doomguy kills him. Either way we win.
>>20390326What he said. Be ready to fight, though. Jeanne should feel more up to a battle now, maybe the combined power of her, Ganondorf and Astolpho can stand up to him.
>>20390424Seconding Logic Bob. If this comes to a fight (and it probably will), it's probably going to take Jeanne, Slim Jim, Ganondorf, AND Astie to take on Doomguy.
So... if this is Ganondorf's place of power, can he create/summon monsters or something?
>>20390326"Doomguy?" I ask, and he nods. Several more Maids approach, each one holding a sword. I gather my allies, and we prepare. Arry frowns, then as the door implodes, she howls:"YE WHO ARE MADE OF NAUGHT, YE WHO STALK THOSE OF SUBSTANCE AND CREATION! COME FORTH, BY MY RIGHT OF COMMAND, AND TAKE THIS MAN INTO YOUR FOLD!" Doomguy whirls around with his chainsaw in one hand. Something stands behind him, something and nothing all at once. I see it - and I don't. It's there, and yet... isn't. Like a rip or a hole... leading nowhere. Long tendrils reach forth, incomprehensible and void. Doomguy screams and swings his weapon, shearing through them as if they are not there, backing into the mansion. Swords being drawn ring out, as Jeanne and Astolpho step forward in unison to drive blades into Doomguy's back, where his armor is exposed. And then one of the tendrils touches his arm.At first, he flickers. Then with a roar, he plants his foot, and remains solid - but his arm, and that... thing are gone. He turns, and raises a single boot to strike Jeanne, but Ganon steps in with a backhand to knock him stumbling back. Spinning, he turns and raises one leg high. I feel building power, then it snaps down hard on Doomguy's belly. To no effect. He rears up, bleeding on the floor, eyes incandescent with rage, missing both arms.
>>20390871Well it looks like Doomguy has just been... disarmed.
>>20390871OK, Arry now has only one command seal, so DON'T use it.What with your prana, Luke? I think it's time for giant stomping and crashing of the castle while you make your escape. Kills two birds with one stone, too: we don't want Ganon to have a freaking castle full of traps now, do we?
>>20390946I doubt that that giant can take down the whole castle and Ganondorf.Pretty sure you'll just piss Ganondorf of.And he's still useful to us.
>>20390988Hm, perhaps. What about broken animated mount? NOT one of the named ones this time. The one that Astie can make out of rocks.
Wait, I doubt you can just smash a Ruler dead. Ask Jeanne for ideas, or who should finish him, if anything.
...Before Doomguy's arms regenerates (if he can do that), maybe Master Luke (with help from Arry's entropy magic) can attempt to sever or at least weaken Doomguy's connection to the Grail?
>>20390871Huh. That happened. This guy is still hugely dangerous without his arms. His speed is tremendous. I suggest you try to take out his legs to keep him grounded. He's already been disarmed, now leave him without a leg to stand on.
Maybe Ganondorf can just leap behind Doomguy and put him in a sleeper hold?
>>20391092"Jeanne, can he even possibly go down?" "Just don't stop!" she replies, rushing in. The maids move with her, synchronized. Swords slam into every gap in his armor, deep and hard, byt he shakes the girls off their weapons and slams his head into Jeanne's belly, sending her tumbling. Ganon slams his foot down with a roar and says something I can barely comprehend - something about this being his castle - and transforms as I rush to Jeanne's side. The prana-edged weapons of Ganon's final form scythe at Doomguy and knock him into a wall. Unharmed. "WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO KILL YOU?!" Ganon roars, slamming his weapon against the downed Doomguy, pushing him into the floor as he stands against the blows. This is a monster that can't be stopped. Jeanne stands beside me, frowning."There... is a way. But it's very... final."
>>20391699Before we try that, how about Ganondorf lift Doomguy by the neck, fly out way beyond the coast, and just drop Doomguy in the ocean?In theory, that should slow him down for a while, if he doesn't need to breath.
>>20391792Or hell, wet cement also works.I mean at this point Doomguy's powers seem limited to not dyingbeing able to run really fastand maybe running fast means he can kick fast as well?
>>20391699No Jeanne your noble phantasm kills you too, all of us care for you and would not give you up. We find a different way.
>>20391699"If you are thinking about what sacrificing yourself, forget it. There must be another way."What about your mana? Can Astie summon the flying beast? Without his hands Doomguy probably lacks his ranged attacks. And can't jump.All we need to do is find a place where he can't reach. Then just spam him with Ganon's magic beams or whatever.At worst you can ask Ganon lend you a hand and lift you.
>>20391699Ganon can punch people into SPESS, why wouldn't it work this time, Grail Seals?
>>20391120Yeah I'm sticking with this.I mean I'm pretty sure Doomguy can't use any of his weapons, and given that he can't jump, he's also easy to avoid....Maybe Luke can try to steal Doomguy's guns?
>>20391846I'd like to see Luke try and steal the chainsaw and saw doomguy up. It would also potentially function as insurance against ganon
He can be hurt, provided there's enough focussed fire in a single limb. Cowboy-dude proved that. Aim for his legs, take them out at all cost. Leave him an angry, angry torso then you can stick him in Ganon's dungeon.
>>20391887Hah, I like the sound of that.Plus if he stays alive and impotent, that means that he won't contribute to the grail coming closer to completion.
>>20391699That's not an option Jeanne.Not just because I care about you, but also because that would leave us two dead Servants closer to a completed Grail.
It's too bad that Cowboy Servant died.If he could use a lasso, he could throw it around Doomguy's neck, thus allowing us to hang him from like the middle of the ceiling.Which would effectively turn Doomguy into the angriest pinata in the world.
>>20391947"Not an option." I say simply, thinking. "Arry, which way is west?" I ask, and she points. "Right." I look down at Doomguy and grin, giving him the finger as I look at Ganon, who reverts, taking huge bounding steps even as Doomguy comes for me - one boot raising. It's the opening Ganon needs.There's a sound like thunder. The Warlock's Punch slams into the monster, sending him flying, through the roof, into the sky, trailing blood, wood, and plaster. "Why west?" "He can't swim. Pacific Ocean." I explain. "... At least I hope that's where he ends up." Astolpho hugs me tightly as the Maids pick themselves up and repair one another, then get to work on the house. Ganon grunts, clutching his side.
>>20392407Show some slight concern for Ganondorf?In theory he's borderline invincible to everything but holy weaponry, but still.
>>20392407Now that THIS is over.There are only two rulers watching over the GW?We better get on their good side
...Well now that Doomguy is in theory neutralized, I just thought of something.Jeanne is still a Ruler-class Servant but is no longer bound by the Grail.In theory, shouldn't that mean she's able to tell us... everything?Like who the other Rulers and Servants are, everything she knows about the Grail trap etc?
>>20392407Great job. He'll probably come back sooner or later but we'll deal with problems at hand first.So.Back to business:- foursome arrangement- decision about the note- informing Ganon about the Grail system and his role- informing Merlin about recent developments (Doomguy knows about our plan, most Masters know as well, other Rulers probably too)- finding White Caster- finding the Skullface- saving the world.
>>20392483Good point, though I think "foursome arrangement" should probably go a little lower on the list.If we can't find White Caster, maybe Green Caster would suffice...assuming it isn't Baron Samedi.
>>20392541Why not Baron Samedi?Even though his domain is death, he likes the world existing.I mean there's smokes, booze, dancing, women, etc, what's not to love?
>>20392541Doubt it's Baron. He would be historical Servant, not fictional one. Besides, he would be fine actually. Baron is all about "have fun 'till you're dead" and the end of the world is not fun for him as far as I understand.He's kinda like more malevolent Merlin in his MO: likes to fuck with people (in both senses) but can be reasoned with. If he doesn't want something REALLY bad. Then he'll do anything to get it.
What if the worst case scenario happens and some absolute jackass summoned Raistlin fucking Majere as Green Caster?
>>20392661He dies of coughing fit. Seriously though, there are a lot of assholish black mages to choose from even without Raistlin and he isn't the most haxx.There is our buddy King of Evil.Sauron.Voldy.And countless others.
>>20392753Is it wrong that I think that our best bet for Green Caster would be Rincewind?
>>20392541>>20392856Whoever Green Caster is, he/she seems to be keeping a low profile, much like White Caster. They're gonna be hard to find, especially with a Ruler and every Master and their dog out looking for us.
>>20392893Isn't the Green Ruler Gandalf or something?I vaguely remember that.
>>20392921No.He is an old man with a beard and in white robes.But not Gandalf. And not Moses.We suspect someone biblical, but so far didn't narrow it down.
Ganon's wound is deep, but not beyind repair. We send him back to his chambers by way of maids, and sit down at a table to discuss the note. Arry and Jeanne vote yes. Astolpho and myself vote no. ...You're the swing-vote, it seems.
>>20393124Yes. He's all we have left of our ... old family, and a powerful potential ally.
>>20393124Does the note appear to have a time limit? If not, it might be a good idea to look for White Caster today. If you can't find him, use the note. If you DO find him, we'll save ourselves a lot of trouble.You'll have to use the note eventually if you truly want to redeem yourself, though. But saving the world comes first.
>>20393220I have to agree with Logic Bob again; he's the most level-headed one of us. If we can't find White Caster, then I vote "Yes".
>>20393124Damn, there are good pro and cont arguments.On the one hand, David is as haxx as you can get without being a Sorcerer and would be of the great use to us.On the other, you are not on the greatest terms with him and he would likely want to kill you.He is reasonable enough to not try to kill you right away... Or was reasonable enough.But there is no telling how it'll go.Then there is the note itself. Who send it and for what purpose? We don't know and it can easily be a trap.But after all, I do think you should meet him. He'll likely show up sooner or later even without arranged meeting. And if we taught him anything, he'll show on a wave of explosion with you as a target.So... reluctantly I say yes, you should go.Prepare for long apologies and speeches about redemption and second chances. Prepare to run really fast if something goes wrong.
>>20393220Hm, sounds good.So, today we look for White Caster. If we don't find him, we'll say yes to the note.
But yeah I'd say firstly lets see how many insider tips Jeanne can give us.Like even though I would hope we would have taught him better, it's possible that David has become all kinds of bitter and might even want the world to end.So lets see what resources we currently have available.
Attempting to track down the White Caster turns into an excersize in futility. It turns out that we don't find any workshops of a size relevant to a Caster, and the others are so varied/protected that Arry cautions me against trying. Asking Merlin nets me a reply of "I cannot track his sort of bullshit". He says he will try. As the day comes to an end, I write a "Yes" on the back of the note - which burns instantly. My cellphone rings.
>>20393607Well you may as well answer it. Let the other person start the conversation. Try to ascertain their identity.
>>20393607Answer? Not answering it would be rude.
>>20393607Let it ring four times, no use trying to break suspense now.
>>20393607Get ready fellow Bobs.A good first step would be to prove to David that Luke has us on his side.
>>20393607Here we go... Can you see the number? Don't think you'll know it either way but still.And yeah, answer the phone.
>>20393637I answer.An older man chuckles. "I had a feeling you'd take this chance." he says. "I can gaurentee you one thing, and one thing only. The location of David Alexander." he says. "Listen closely, I am only going to tell you this once: David has gone into isolation with his wives, daughters, and grand-daughter. They will try to stop you from seeing him. It is likely they will not listen to reasoning." "I understand." "Good. It's up to you who you bring. But understand, I can't gaurentee your safety. Are we clear?"
>>20393734Can we get his name or something?
>>20393734"Crystal. May I ask what is your stake in this affair? People rarely help me out of generosity."
>>20393734Understood.I sincerely doubt that you're going to tell me who you are but I may as well ask.Why are you helping me?
>>20393772This. Try to weedle some more info out of him concerning his identity and whatnot.
>>20393734We bring our immediate entourage of Arry, Jeanne, Astolfo, Luke and Bob. Ganon can go fuck himself.A saint, and a paladin should be able to vouch for us. David will likely be angry, convincing him that we want to fix shit is a good start.
>>20393734Lets just get this out of the way."Are you David Alexander and is this some test-of-character thing?"
Prediction: By the time we meet up with David, Doomguy will have, through sheer force of rage, escaped from the ocean and tracked us to the current location, forcing David and Luke to, in true comic book fashion, team up to take him down.
>>20393825"Are you David Alexander and is this some test-of-character thing?""Ha! As if. You got Legion in there, you know who hands out Notes." he says. "Ask him about it - he should understand, with this little prodding, who exactly I am. And let me just say - this isn't my decision. My wife prodded me to it."
>>20393772>>20393822These. Now we need to suggest some good lines for Master Luke to mention when he meets David's family so that they know the power of Bob the Skull is with Luke.
>>20393898"So, how did tentacles worked for you?"
>>20393898Ah, them. It's Donnie, or another member of his family. Makes sense that they know where to find them.
>>20393898Hey, everyone, it's Donnie! Hi Donnie! Ask him if his wife still goes skinny-dipping in the lake. If so, we should go peeking.
>>20393927THIS! It's Donnie....and he knows that Luke is Bob the Skull's new Master.Tell Donnie that Bob wants to know if Annie still likes to skinny-dip, Master.
>>20393967>>20393960"Bob wants to know if""Yes, and no, you can't watch." he replies smoothly. He rattles off some GPS co-ordinates. "Don't go in direct. Trust me. He's gone full magus on his wards." he pauses. "I have to go now." he says, and hangs up. These coordinates... They're right in the middle of a goddamned rainforest.
>>20394019Looks like it's time to go, Master. Bring Arry, Jeanne, and Astolfo with you.Be very careful, Master; let's not fight if we don't have to. I'm betting that the first family members to "welcome" you will be one or both of David's wives. If it is, we can suggest what to say so they know Bob is with you.
>>20394019Rainforest?Like... in South America?...Are we going to have to deal with http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/ORT?
>>20394019Damn. You can expect fuckton of traps. I wouldn't put exploding pigeons past him. How do magi contact each other normally anyway? We can always fly but again, exploding pigeons and snipers.No phone...Send familiar maybe? Or send Ganon to clear it a bit. It's not like he'll die from anything here... Dangerous to involve him, though.You can just get to the edge of the boundary field and be there until someone notices but, again, snipers.
>>20394019...If we track down Cid, could we hitch a ride in his rocket ship?I would hope that that's one of his Noble Phantasms.
>>20394099Don't involve Ganon in this. We're already pushing it with Luke showing up, having the King of Evil show up on his doorstep will not help diplomacy in the least.
>>20394112i bet his strongest still is the highwind dumping an assload of torpedoes all over everything and essentially levelling a stupidly large area.or materia, one of the two.
>>20394019Decision time, kiddo. Do you want to go after David or continue to pursue one of the remaining Casters? There's a lot of stuff going on in Seattle that needs your attention, too. The skull-faced servant, for one.
HOLY FUCK YOU SILLY GOOSE BRING THE PUPPYTHERE IS A GRAND DAUGHTERBRING THE DAMN PUPPY
>>20394166Donnie didn't seem to indicate any sense of urgency.And if Luke, Astolfo, Arrie, and Jeanne all leave, that would just leave Ganondorf and Merlin at the Seattle branch of team save the world....I don't really like the sound of that.
>>20394182Agreed, but splitting up the team would be equally bad. We need to choose. Maybe Merlin can get us there faster? Or Astolpho with one of his mounts?
>>20394171Bring the damn puppy. Jeannes revelation skill and astolfo's luck can get us in just fine. We need nothing else aside from transport.
>>20394166I don't know, I think that before we leave, we should solve the mystery of skull guy first.Can't Jeanne just like... tell us who he is since she doesn't work for the Grail anymore?If not, we need to figure out why he's doing what he's doing, and either have him join the team or be destroyed.
why not just find white casterdavid obviously doesn't give enough of a fuck to get out of petty revenge mode and try figureing out what in the shit is going on.let him go live in peace, we have a world to save and that can come later.
>>20394290We tried that and none of us could manage.For all we know, skull guy already got to him.
>>20394290in addition to this the guy never followed his promise of getting us a body, and left us to rot, he can go be crazy hermit for all i care.
>>20394304it helps for us to know WHO he is first.so why don't we ask the friendly ruler living with us and hopefully she can tell us what the shit.
>>20394322i'm THINK she only knows about the historical servants
>>20394310...I find myself in partial agreement.Like it sounds like David has pretty much become a creepy compound leader.
>>20394338If that's the case, then I want to know who the Red Saber, Archer, Lancer, and Assassin are.
"Jeanne, can you tell us the identity of any of the other servants?" She shakes her head. "That information was granted by the Grail. Without the connection... Or my adherence to it..." "I understand. Alright folks, we've got a huge jungle to deal with and a very powerful family inside. How should we approach?" Astolpho thinks, along with Jeanne. But it's Arry who speaks up. "I can hide you, remember?" she says. "How well?" "Probably well enough to get you close enough to talk."
If we are going to leave, I think Luke should write a note saying something like"Dear Ms. Sandiego,I will be going to the Amazon Jungle in order to meet with a potential associate, Mr. David Alexander, and his family.I would be honored if you would accompany me.Your hopeful protoge, Luke"And then fold the note up, and place it in the most secure part of Ganondorf's mansion.
>>20394409That's all I need. We can acquire transportation on site. All that's left is getting there and we have money and given that the end of the world is approaching I don't mind spending it on plane tickets.
>>20394459Dude, we have a servant who can ride anything to make it go super-fast and we're buddies with Merlin. No way are we going to just buy tickets.
>>20394583"Buddies" seems like a strong word.
>>20394454I sit down and start writing.Halfway through, I feel a breeze and the letters vanish. I stare at the blank page for a moment, before shaking my head. "We still need transit." I mutter. "There's no way I have -" Arry raises her hand again. "I, uh. Can handle it." she says. "How?" "...Traditional Magus?" she asks, and then shakes her head while pulling out her phone. It looks like an old-fashioned headset, and she dials. "Monty." she says. "Yes, I need a jet. The fastest you can manage? Oh, and some parachutes." She hangs up. "At noon we're going to SeaTac." she says simply. I sigh, raising an eyebrow. "No runways. We;re jumping."
>>20395148So just tell Ganondorf and Merlin we're going out and try not to kill each other?...Or anyone else?
>>20395148I always wanted to learn how to skydive by jumping out of a perfectly good aircraft to land in the middle of the rainforest inhabited by an old extremely powerful mage. That's taken care of, make sure Ganon and Merlin know you're going out for a bit and to hold the fort while we're gone. Depending on the time you could make dinner with Astolfo and have a nice quiet dinner with the four of you.
>>20395148You'd best give Arry a hug to thank her for everything she's doing for you, master.One important rule we need to have once we're there is NO KILLING. We want David as an ally. Killing his family is counter-productive to this. Bring any non-lethal weaponry you might have. Arry might be able to bring us in close to them, but the chance of shit going badly is pretty damn high. Be prepared.
>>20395300I smile, and hug her. Even though it's late, Astolpho asks if we can leave as soon as possible, and he and Jeanne spar for the night while me and Arry talk some more.It turns out she's actually doing very well with the Clock Tower - but she cares little for their anger towards me. She says she has given thought to my proposal - and is willing to give it a shot. Night comes - and goes. I'm too anxious to sleep, so I talk with Astolpho. He accepts my proposal with little thought, before he falls asleep in my lap.
>>20395358D'awww, we seem to have the beginnings of a nice little polygamous circle. David should be able to respect that, at least. Try to catch some shuteye, master. You've got a long, tiresome day ahead of you.
>>20395358Whistle in the night, like so many nightingales.
>>20395148>I sit down and start writing.>Halfway through, I feel a breeze and the letters vanish. I stare at the blank page for a moment, before shaking my head. Hahaha yes.
...Regarding Ganondorf, if the Grail War ends and the world is saved, and no one has killed Ganondorf yet...He can just stay on Earth forever at full power can't he?What with his Independent Action and Triforce of Power.I mean he probably can't conquer the world what with the Church, the various Mages, and of course those fucking vampires, but he could still carve out a pretty sweet place for himself.
