investigate what the red button does
>>25986921NO. It might be a self-destruct button.
>>25986949Peer sternly at the red button until it reveals its secrets
>>25986960Do the dance of intimidation.

>>25986878thumb wrestle the kraken using the controls of our mega skele. thumb wrestle solves all disputes(we cheat by hiding our thumb ofc)
>>25987110Tic-tac-toe is our game of choice
>>25987223... okay, much better result than expected.So, can we try standing up now?
>>25987223so how do we get out of here?
>>25987223Pull the levers!Send Skelesassin out to see if it has bones.
>>25987223well lets see that wimpy pally take us on now!
>>25987223YESI KNEW ITAssimilate the sea beast
>>25987304Hey now, don't hate on him for doing what he thinks is right, besides, he will be our bro soon.
>>25987319Octopi have no bones>>25987249
>>25987304>wimpyHe took a full blast skelecannon and got pissed; wimpy he ain't. However, I like the idea of flattening him with a giant skelemech.
>>25987375Firmly grasp sea-waifu. Mourn deeply.
>>25987375OP did you see pacific rim by any chance?
>>25987386ya i remember he is strong as hell. but us in this compared to him? different story
>>25987412No but I really want to.
>>25987375Strike a pose!
>>25987418iunno Pally Dan is a pretty strong dude
>>25987375Motor control test.This >>25987431 and dance!
>>25987438Pally Dan is a jerk. Did you even see what he did to poor guardskull?
>>25987375We need to see how effective we are at controlling this thing. Quickly, time for the Dance of Merriment and Mirth!
>>25987438maybe his god will grant him a zord and we can have the upmost fucking epic battle
>>25987563now eat sea-waifuwaste not want not
>>25987563Make her our hat, so that we will always remember.
>>25987563Hey, we can salvage the beak and use it for our skelemech drillbit.
>>25987563Stuff up her into the ribcage.Keep her close to your heart
>>25987563Make it into a scarf, it gets chilly when you're a skeleton.
>>25987563alright its time to bust outta dis motha fucking cave and either find that pally or quickly return to the collapsed tower to get that other damn crown from long ago.
>>25987669this one seems good.also TENTACLES
>>25987717In the caveI saw a creature, naked, bestial,Who, standing in the water,Held his sea-waifu in his hands,And ate of it.
>>25987717tie sea waifus tentacles to your ribs so it cant slip free, then start punching your way through that tiny hole that the party got in through
>>25987833STOP TURTURING HIM GOD DAMMIT
>>25987867Lets go crush that paladin now.
>>25987867onward to new adventures. follow the road.
>>25987886But before that, we must gyrate out hip bones in his general direction derisively
>>25987886>>25987894Paladin first, road after.Paladins are dicks
>>25987867>>25987886Time for payback!Top tower kinda looks like a crown from here. Either it's the head of Pallymech, or we can salvage it and put it on our head!
>>25987867Jump out of the hole and strike a glorious pose.Stare straight at where Pally Dan is.
>>25987867Oh before we continue, a lot has happened already tonight so let's pick a skeleskill!>skelevision 2>skelepathy 1>skelecannon 2>skelechemy 1
>>25987932+1 to skelechemy
>>25987932>skelechemyTransmuting meatbag into bone, here we come!
>>25987932Skelechemy! We can turn seawaif into bones!
>>25987932No skelenesis? Aw...Skelechemy then.
>>25987938>>25987943>>25987946>>25987949>>25987967>>25987970>>25987973Skelechemy it is!
>>25987995Yay!So what does it do?
>>25987995Alright now that Skelechemy is unlocked, I'll explain a little bit about it.Skelechemy, simply put, turns bones into other bones. It is essentially a sort of "crafting system", wherein you spend skeletons to create various useful and powerful things. At level 1, you may use Skelechemy to craft level 1 Skelegear. Unlike normal weapons and armor, Skelegear improves each individual skeleton within the gestalt skeleton. For example, a level 1 Skelesword would provide a +5 static bonus to attacking for a gestalt skeleton comprised of five skeletons. You may also craft Skelearmor this way.
>>25988057So...we spend skeleton body parts to make other things?Can we remake them in body form?
>>25988057A level 1 Skelesword (or other Skeleweapon of your choice) costs 50 skeles. A level 1 Skelearmor costs 100 skeles. The Skeletitan, (which you are currently piloting) is a force multiplier, it multiplies your attack results by 1.5, and your defense TN as well. It has a Composition of 50.
>>25988088Yes you can break Skelegear back down into skeletons.
>>25988119Well, it looks like we're going to have to find a graveyard soon.
>>25988119Wait, like, 1 skeles is a whole body? Damn...Also, is the skeletitan a robot, or are we too small to join together with him?
>>25988127HOLY CRAP that means we can not go skelegroup mode, and instead be a SkeleSAMURAIMan, that is gonna be so cool...
>>25988119>>25988132Skeletitan, excavate the tower!
>>25988057>>25988119In addition to these mechanical uses, Skelechemy, like all Skeleskills, has a high amount of utility and can be used in creative and unexpected ways.
>>25988145It is a golem, technically.
>>25988119>>25988127>>25988132the skelegeddon commences....OP, cam\n we craft wood/stone/metal into arrows for our archer with skelechemy?
I will create an image later explaining Skelechemy for future threads. Anyway, let's continue!
>>25988176Golem huh? I didn't think it was an actual skeleton...we'd be super sized if so.But hey, fucking EYE BEAMS How do you get better then that?
>>25988176Let's check out the tower. I recall at least one dead body being there, and the Pally might still be mourning the King.
>>25988172Arrows aren't really limited. It's too tedious to track. Instead the bow just adds to your normal attacks with the assumption that it and all of your other weapons are used as part of any regular attack roll.
>>25988176Requesting that we start digging through the tower for missed skeles again. Also find that abomination bird and keep him for a bet.
>>25988262Use as many skeletons as possibly with skelevision to find that paladin. I'd dont think we want him getting any sneaky sneaky ideas.
>>25988262I agree on finding the paladin and crushing em with our EYE LASERS I swear if he calls upon the power of Voltron, I will be so mad.
I hope the paladin didnt leave his shield where we're going to step on it. With his sword stuck through the middle.
>>25988239>>25988285Roll d30 to determine number of salvageable skeles
>>25988354low is good, right?Can we fix any with alchemy?
>>25988354We... We're going for low again, right?Right?
>>25988365We brought the entire tower down with, what, an 8? Now we're raising it again.
>>25988365This roll was a literal number, and the result takes reconstruction into consideration.
>>25988384Sorry I wasn't more clear to begin with.
>>25988384>2 skeles2 cruel
>>25988384well i guess it makes sense, most of the bones should be pretty shattered in that collapse. well then i guess we make our way over to that town and begin the skeleggedon
>>25988440Ah, oh well.I say after we exhume those 2 skellies, we should try to find the pally (unless he legged it already.)Then, we take off those huge doors and nail them down together to form a shield
>>25988440we're never going to roll that low again
>>25988440make a cannonball from them.
>>25988481idk, we have been rolling pretty damn low though out this whole quest, usually its really good, just not in this case
>>25988448>townWhat town?>>25988481Also that.>>25988458Seconded.
>>25988526EYE BLAST DEM BIRDS
>>25988526SKELEKINESIS DEM BIRDS
>>25988538>>25988542I'M GETTING MIXED SIGNALS HERE
>>25988501i guess i thought that was a town in the distance that long while ago, or at least a very small village
>>25988553Grab them and eat them
>>25988554There are some villages, yes
>>25988526Well, I seem to recall that our original skelly was jailed in a cell with really tall doors. I figured we should slap them all together for a shield or something, but it's not that important.Where is the paladin? He gone?Also, acquire more skellies. Those birds will do nicely.
>>25988553Use skelekinesis to line up an eye blast
>>25988564FULL SPEED AHEAD THEN!
>>25988526Skelenisis half, blast the other halfsplit the remainder in two
>>25988567Ohhh haha those doors. Yeah those aren't accessible anymore since the tower got fucked.>>25988570I like the way you think, but they are too far up for SK, they are actually really huge eagles.>>25988538
>>25988645Keep blasting, when one gets close enough SK it into a minion and have it free the rest. We're getting at least ONE scout out of this
>>25988645Hope we can scavenge a whole skeleton from that.Does our eyebeams have a stun setting?
>>25988645ok now its time to go terrorize some villagers and free our skeleton kin
>>25988645attach fighter arm with sword and send our bird to fight them.
>>25988669If we let the villagers live, we could continue to harvest their bones when they die, and still allow them to reproduce for us.
>>25988688Too long term, besides we have an entire planet. I'm sure they'll repopulate by the time we come back.
>>25988688there are too many living and not enough undeadAFTER THE VILLAGERS!
>>25988707>I'm sure they'll repopulate by the time we come back.Only if we let them live. Maybe liberate those past active breeding ages.
>>25988688and let our skelecomrades trapped in their retched, stinking, disgusting prison. NONE SHALL EVER SPEAK SUCH HERESY
>>25988665>Does our eyebeams have a stun setting?Only if it it's stunning rings which we can use only once, after which they are never brought up again.
>>25988658Eye beam is on cool down now>>25988645HE RETURNS
>>25988783SWAT AT HIM.
Rolled 89>>25988791MAKE A PILOTING ROLL!
Rolled 25>>25988783>>25988799More friends? More for us.
>>25988783our greatest foe! quick run to the nearest peak and swat at him like king kong!
>>25988815i know you want to draw it
>>25988906Send the bird to finish off the fallen one
>>25988906haha, fucking perfect. thank you OPdid we hit him?
>>25988906Wind Gust from the SkeleTitan's mouth.It has been underwater for a while, and we just ate a side of squid so the mouth must be really rancid by now.
>>25988922thats a good idea.
>>25988922Just the bird? Or bird plus others?
>>25988941I'm sure a paladin can barely survive a fall like that, then heal himself up to become a pest later. The problem is protecting the bird.which is why its actually bait
>>25988957Just the bird, one pass, if it takes more than that we can always just step on him.
>>25988957I say bird + fighter and/or ranger
>>25988957skeletons riding birds so we wont get out of skelekineses range
>>25989038very nice POV
>>25989038We should put the archer in the mouth, maybe with a few extras in case things get hectic. Make sure guardskull has the rope on him.
Rolled 29>>25989061Thanks!Time to roll
Rolled 48>>25989094Ha, he hasn't even hit the ground yetthis is going to fail horribly
>>25989094OP, this thread is my favorite thing. don't ever change. see you at the 10 year reunion.
What is the twitter for this?
>>25989124That roll was twice as high as the opposing roll.High is bad. BYE BYE BIRDIE
>>25989124Not unless he is gettin a penalty, we want to roll under the DM
>>25989094this cant be the end for our great enemy. a worthy opponent who survived a tower falling upon him, refusing to stop trying to save his lord. brushed aside the very attack that brought down a tower. is this really then end. in humiliation and utter defete. without so much of a fight? things look pretty hopeless for him here
>>25989149ah, I doubt its the one we want.This ones probably Pally Dean or something.
>>25989155oh god now I want someone to make this crossover gonna have to request it in some drawthread
>>25989196That roll wasn't for anything by the way.
>>25989196Bollocks. We dont have time to fire the cannon, do we?
Rolled 60>>25989196>>25989203if i win the roll save the skelebirdPAY FOR YOUR MISTAKES
>>25989196damnn RNG doesnt really like pally. I wouldn't mind a little GM fiat here I want to see a battle
>>25989209Go for it. Who are you shooting?
>>25989221The paladin won the roll. He got a 29, the bird has a 48.
Rolled 2>>25989234Roll it
>>25989230i know but i thought the fact he is falling would have an effect on his outcome, didnt think he won by enough
>>25989244>Rolled 2I'm sad now.
>>25989244no fucking way you have got to be shitting me, there is something up with RNG and skelecannon
>>25989253me toocaptcha - emotion awfuthw
>>25989244We can't use the time he spends not even noticing a skull flying at him at 500 gigasanics to actual deal damage to him, can we?
Rolled 90>>25989271You can if you roll a 1!
Rolled 78>>25989311dicegods, mercy
>>25989328I'd post a sadfrog, but I dont have one sad enough
>>25989370Crush him with the titan. Jump from the tower onto him, then pick up whatever is left and hurl it as his friends.
Rolled 88>>25989370Oh god no ;_____;What did we ever do to him?
>>25989370wait what im confused what happened, i thought we rolled good with cannonsomeone please explain, im not really good at interpreting rolls
>>25989393the cannon was a 78. The paladin rolled a 2 on countering.
Rolled 68>>25989393Low rolls are good. I rolled a 2 for the paladin here: >>25989244to zap them before the cannon shot.
Alright final drawing for the thread here. It's 4:30am here so I need to go pass out
>>25989370EYEBEAM HIMSTOMP THAT RED FUCKING BUTTON
>>25989370we shall take their eagles for what they have done to our cute skelebird.we will look at our slippers and remember you every morning when taking a dump skelebird.
>>25989403oh i thought low rolls were good for us cause were the bad guys and high rolls were good for them because theyre the pcs
>>25989403ah i had it backwards, no wonder, well now im sad. we lost bird, ranger, and fighter right? i mourn skelebird the most. playtime is over, time to fuck up that pally
>>25989416pacific time FTW, ya im tired as shit too.aww man i feel bad for the rest of the followers when the find out we lost skelebird, no more supa skeledrill. i am actually really sad about this.
>>25989429low rolls are good for us.
>>25989445Yeah I liked CAW. Holy magic doesn't play around
>>25989459its hard to have a fun silly game as soon as good friends start to die
I'm not sure I'll have the energy to run later today but I'll try. I'll update the twitter regardless.
>>25989467when friends start to die *again
>>25989468sounds good, time for some well deserved rest
>>25989467Yeah I certainly don't intend to make the game un-fun, or very serious for that matter. I try to go back and forth between "dramatic" scenes and "comedic" scenes though, to make the lighthearted aspects that much more effective.
>>25989488I would like to add that I'm always willing to take feedback into account, and is one of the reasons I hang out in the threads after the episode is concluded.
>>25989498We need skelemending, stat
>>25989498I really appreciate it, thanks for running this QM.You should get some rest, you did good today.
>>25989488definitely, I totally agree and understand. wouldnt be as great if there were never any risks
>>25989501It'll take skelenecromancy to bring birdbro back I think.
>>25989515Double necromancy? The power to bring the dead back to death.
>>25989498there isnt anything i can think of that you should change, this quest is awesome and very fun. we've been really silly thus far, lets see how things might change with the death of skelebird. its a shame but like a said it wouldnt be as fun without the inherent risk of loosing
>>25989528>>25989511>>25989507Thanks for the feedback. Night bros
>>25989566*morning* but bed time
Ya' know, I'm not the best artist, but I've thought about doing a thread like this.Do you guys think /tg/ could to with more draw quest adventures?
