You are Yuri Ivanov, a Corporal in the Tesenturian Reserve Corp and well….shit happened to you, after partying with some comrades in celebration for a series of peace treaties and creation of a lasting stable government. Meaning that for the first time in its history will ensure that the neighboring countries will cease hostiles and that the government itself will ensure that it will keep together and not fall from the various factions that once plagued the old one thus ensuring a long awaited peace.Or at least it should have after being enlisted on a patrol along with several new recruits by your closest friend and now superior Sergeant Maya Salko which took you on the outskirts of the city in which you were ambushed by remnants of an old faction. After a couple of skirmishes with the enemy which left your forces with a few wounded, one dead, and you almost dying by the end of a knife but otherwise the battle was a success. However a strange bright light suddenly envelops the both of you in which you managed save her by pushing her out of the way. Next thing you know you wake up in a land which you had not spend maybe an hour in, in which you were looked upon as some strange being, been blown up, kissed by some little girl, been branded like cattle, saw flying children, kind of threatened by some older man, and was left to care for said little girl who had kissed you and displaying some sort of spoiled princess routine in which you had to escort her to the Tristain School of Magic.Yeah magic….Once entering the campus you immediately heard towards Colbert in which you question him about the whole Familiar and Contract you were forced upon by the girl and finding out that you are a strange oddity of being possibly the first human familiar to be summoned. After having this enlightening discussion you returned to Miss Valliere’s dorm to sleep and hopefully think it is some all liquor induced dream.
>>26761195Unfortunately that was not so and you awoke just as you fell asleep in alive in a strange new country you have never heard of. So taking the time to memorize your surroundings and returned to find a blue dragon with a taste for military rations. Once meeting with Louise to join for breakfast (and sneaking off with some leftovers) you joined her in class and figured out why she was called ‘Zero’ after the destruction with the classroom. Deciding to help her clean up and giving some advice and theories as a combat engineer you head towards the library and find Colbert for answers both which yield no results. Feeling frustrated at this you ended up bumping into a maid named Siesta who was pushing a heavy cart full of lunches, desserts, and other food stuffs. You then decided to help her out while listening to gossip and sneaking in some of the food you were carrying. Once reaching the courtyard and having a relaxing time handing out food until you passed by a group of rowdy boys in which supposedly the leader of the group accidentally dropped a vial in front of your feet. You picked it up and examining its contents it seems to be a perfume probably from or for his girlfriend or something judging by what you can understand from their conversation. Well it might be a problem if he loses it or something so you probably think it will be best to return it to him. You give a sigh as you walk towards the blond showoff grabbed his arm that was not holding the rose and placed viral into his opened palm.“Hey, Guiche is it? You dropped this.” You said to him with a small grin on your face and in turn give you a shocked expression. “Best be careful next time or you might have lost this.”So having done your good deed of the day you’re about to go back and help Siesta but the boys around the blond suddenly surged with excitement. "Ooh? That perfume, isn't that Montmorency's?"
>>26761244"They’re misunderstanding. Katie, listen. The only person I hold in my heart is you... " He tries to defend himself as he tries to get closer to her.She slaps him on the other cheek. "That perfume you dropped from your pocket is more than enough proof! Goodbye!"She then proceeds to leave just when another girl having long blond ringlet curls and freckles comes walking in. >What do you say or do?
>>26761266Stand back and watch the disaster.
>>26761266Sorry, I forgot to post this new thread so late, I had to go to a party.Was in a rush to get this done that I forgot the freaking subject.
>>26761266"Incoming secondary slap in..." then proceed to count down for Siesta
>>26761266>What do you say or do?tabitha, she's the best girl in that serieshttp://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=list&tags=zero_no_tsukaima+tabitha+rating%3asafe
>>26761463Sorry,Something happened.>writing now.
>>26762591Normally, you don’t take pleasure in something like this but then again you never personally witnessed something like this to begin with other then hearing a few of your comrades boast their escapades (and more often of their less successful ones). So you decided to take a seat and mentally countdown the incoming physical abuse."Montmorency. This is a misunderstanding. All I did was accompanying her on a long trip to the forests of La Rochelle..." Guiche said, shaking his head. While he was pretending to remain composed, a drop of cold sweat ran down his forehead.3."Just as I thought! You've been making moves on that first year, haven't you?!"2."Please, Montmorency the Fragrance. Don't twist your rose-like face in anger like that. It saddens me to see it!"1.You were expecting a slap like that other girl did but exceeding your expectations she snatches the same vial out of his hand in which you has placed it moments earlier and then proceeded to poor it violently on his head.“You liar.” She declares before tossing the vial and promptly walked out leaving the area stunned in silence. However even surpassing your expectations more so was Guiche who pulled out a handkerchief and slowly wipe his head while declaring. “It would seem those ladies do not understand the meaning of a rose's existence."He bounces up fast you give him that.What do you say or do?
>>26763729"It would seem more that you don't understand ladies, Guiche."
>>26763729Face palm and shake head. Then ask Siesta if this is common for this kid.
>>26763729So we either say something to Guiche or comment him or Siesta?Which one?
>>26764066I guess Siesta, say it without Guiche over hearing and getting offended, we got things to do and offending nobles is a good way to waste time
>>26763729You slap your palm on your face and sighed looking towards the maid who was not so far from you when witnessing this event. Her expression looking that she was holding back her amusement. “Hey Siesta, is this common for this kid?” You asked a little amazed at how the kid can still talk in such flowery language despite the fact she’s being laughed at by his peers.“His way of speaking or his womanizing?” She asks back.“Both.” You mumbled back.“Well for the most part it is but then again he is part of the youngest son of the Gramont family who are unofficially known for this type of thing.” She explains in which you can only dimly nod having a hard time imagining such a family. However deciding that you can spend your energy to something more productive you decided to finish up and meet Louise. “Stop right there!” You briefly turn to see the blond haired wanna-be playboy pointing dramatically at you with his rose.>What do you say or do?
>>26764897"Look fella, I kind of have an appointment to keep with a pint sized kidnapper, so can we do this another time?"
>>26764897"Sorry blondie, you're not my type."
>>26765638Oh god, this"Sorry blondie, nothing personal, but you're just not my type" and then blow a kiss in the wind.He is clearly insecure about his sexuality.
>>26765638>>26765731>>26765735You realize this COULD blow up in our face. You know how Kirche got really rapey with Saito in canon? Imagine GUICHE doing that to us.
Rolled 16>>26765638Do this
>>26765758If he tries to get rapey with us we can always force feed him those stupid roses he carries around all day.
>>26764897You did a look over of the blond from head to toe taking note of his flowing blond hair, his exposed sculpted chest that screams narcissist, and his purple pants which you are mildly surprised they made that color in men’s sizes before responding back.“Sorry blondie, you’re not my type.” You gave him a dull but easy going stare and a lop-sided grin. “Not to mention I don’t like being the rebound-girl those situations get kind of messy really quick.” This earned another bout of laughter and teasing from the onlookers even Siesta who tries to hide earlier now laughs behind an open palm as the blonde’s face suddenly turns red with flustered. “Y-you heathen! How dare you commoner addressing a noble such as I like that and sully the honor of those poor girls.”“Sullied? Listen kid I think you did plenty of damage before I even showed.” You gave the blonde a flat stare. “Hoho, not so.” He replied trying to regain some of his wit as he twirled the rose in his right hand and posed. “If you hadn't butted in and handed me that vial then all would have been well, you as a commoner should have kept your own business to yourself and moved on.”Now you really stared at him wondering how does that logic even work and more so what is going on in that kid’s brain to come up with such a thing. Then you suddenly realize you don’t really care.“Whatever kid.” You sighed as you turn away from him and gave a wave. “Unlike your suddenly free bachelor schedule I have an appointment with a pink pint-sized powder keg and a magical blue dragon to feed so I have to pencil you in another time.”You begin walking before you hear him letting out a condescending laugh.
>>26766424Oh of course, now I recognize you.” He said with some sort of realization. “Your that commoner summoned by ‘Louise the Zero’ as expected of her to bring such a nosy heathen to this place, like the old saying goes ‘Like Master like familiar afterall.’”You hear a few laughs from the other noble kids at that comment as once more you stop to turn to him and see him sighing and motioning his hand in a wave like gesture while the other one plays with his locks. “To think I Guiche de Gramont got a little riled up from a familiar even more so by one summoned by that ‘Zero’. How embarrassing of me, you have my permission to leave.”Your brow twitches slightly at the Blondie who is dismissing you like that because of being summoned by that pink haired half-pint. Then a brief image of a scene earlier today of that same half-pint covered in soot grabbing you and asking you for some other worldly advice on how to do magic when you yourself only found out about this over twenty-four hours ago.You take a deep breath and exhale.Do..you really care enough?>What do you say or do?>Care enough to deflate this over-sized ego (Write-in snarky comeback)>Don’t really care enough this kid’s already been through the butt of plenty of jokes what’s one more going to do.
>>26766433>Care enough to deflate this over-sized ego (Write-in snarky comeback)"Like Master like familiar you say? Then I'm extremely glad I didn't get summoned by you. I'd hate being a narcissistic idiot who worships his own reflection and uses his family name to hide the fact that he has done nothing of worth in his life. At least Louise is interesting, you're just boring.Take care kiddo, maybe one day you'll manage to find a girl who doesn't slap you the moment they find there is nothing to you beneath the surface."And then wander off, we've got a dragon to hang out with.
>>26766627This, except watch our back for reprisals, if AOE'd, protect Siesta since she is a friendly.
>>26766746I hope this school has good facilities for healing people. Because if he challenges us to a duel I am seriously considering going Indiana Jones on him.
Rolled 16>>26766823nah that's just a waste of ammo.
>>26766854That poor bullet....
>>26767064wanted to wait until there was some form of consensus before I write.Sorry.
>>26767116...this is the best your going to get...>go R lee Ermy on his ass.
>>26766627No, that's just going to make us look like we're picking a fight with him. We need to taunt him. "Hey, no need to get all passive-aggressive with me, sorry if I touched a nerve, I'm not judging your preferences"
>>26767116Well, if you really want to make sure of a consensus, try waiting about 10-20 minutes. Seeing as there doesn't seem like much players on here, I'd probably go for 10.
>>26766627Just do this to get the plot rollin
>>26766433You sighed as you gave the Blondie a glare similar to that of your old drill instructor who dealt with the more ‘uppity’ recruits back in the day. You guess you do care enough."Like Master like familiar you say?” Repeating his quote before giving a sarcastic smile at the blond. “Then I'm extremely glad I didn't get summoned by you. I'd hate being a narcissistic idiot who worships his own reflection and uses his family name to hide the fact that he has done nothing of worth in his life. At least Louise is interesting, you're just boring.”What you said might have hit a poor spot for this kid as he flushed red in anger and gripping his rose tightly thinking that he might cut himself with the thorns. Thinking back the kid also showed similar signs on how she valued her noble pride and tries to show some effort and prove that she is one considering her inability to form spells normally and in constant ridicule. In contrast considering these kids and this environment they’d had done nothing really of note to show for it.This really hit a sore spot for the blond who is now glaring at you in turn now. “It seems the commoner needs to learn some manners and out of my generous heart I will teach you such etiquette.”He makes what seems to be a dramatic pose by taking a step forward and making a ‘whoosing’ motion of is cape and pointed at you. “and I cannot think of a better teaching method then a duel we shall meet at Vestri Court, come prepare yourself and meet me there.”He walks away with his posse who seems excited to see a fight and turn to Siesta who begins to look at you with worry with tears in her eyes as her body shakes. “Yuri!” Before what you can ask what's wrong you heard your name and turned to see the kid her face pale and breathing erratic. “Wha-what have you done?”>What do you say or do?
>>26767257>respond with"...the world a favor.">take the fucker on.
>>26767257"Apparently he wants to duel me. He probably hasn't had a serious fight in his life, I have been a soldier for for a good portion of my life. I'm not really worried. I wonder if I can get him to back off, I wouldn't want to kill him just for being a stupid brat. Are these types of duels to the death, first blood, surrender? How good is your medical technology? What sort of stuff does he do with his Magic? Any specialties or weaknesses?"
>>26767274>>26767311Combine the two for maximum bad ass
>>26767257Oh, god, finally, FINALLY, an opportunity for some good ole military-style ultraviolence!>What do you say or do?Grin.Pat her on the head."Don't worry! I got this covered!"
>>26767322now I wan't all 3
>>26767316Poor Siesta, she thinks that we should be worried that we're up against someone with magic. And we're here cheerfully plotting how best to shove our boot up his ass. We're looking forward to it.
>>26767257Seems like there is a consensus.>Writing
>>26767257"Just gave him his girlfriend's perfume back. Well, I guess it's ex-girlfriend now. Also, I might insinuated how much of a pompous narcissistic twit he is."Possibly combine with >>26767311 .
>>26767352Hell yeah all we gotta do is:>fix bayonet, at start take aim and fire into legs, if mis block attack or dodge and use service pistol to double tap him in the knees
>>26767365no that's a waste of ammo.Just stab him we gandalf anyway.
Conserve ammunition, beat him up with the butt of our rifle without firing a single shot if we can. This will send a message that we don't need to use lethal force to crush him.
>>26767410He has a swordwe have a gunif were not going to shoot then why have it?
>>26767410Forgot to put the amount of dice you wanna roll in front of the D, broseph.
>>26767365Well easiest way might be to have our pistol drawn before we get there, just hold it in our hand. Walk up to him, let him start his spiel about the disrespect we have showed him because you know he's going to rant at us, raise the pistol toward him, interrupt him by saying "Bang. I could have just killed you. Your pretty face would have a hole right through it.Don't duel me, I'd rather not kill you." Intimidation means he loses more face and we don't get bitched at for breaking his face or shooting him in the leg.
>>26767451>implying he would understand that at all...But what the hell, worth a shot.
Shooting a nobleman is going to end terribly. Let's just bludgeon him with the butt of our rifle. We're a trained soldier, of course we know how to fight with rifle + with gandalf buffing it's going to be terribly one sided.
>>26767423He's not really a threat and if we kill him, things will end terribly and we have limited ammo. We can just bludgeon him anyway.
If we use a gun, he can just say we cheated. If we beat him up while having the option to shoot, but not requiring to, we can make a name for ourselves.
>>26767702>>26767685watch as he knows how to sword fight and proceeds to hand are ass to us on a plate
>>26767358“The world a favor.” You replied coolly thinking on his attitude that no one person should have so much ego and get away with it. Considering your country are always the humble reminders of your neighbors that you can’t get too high off your military force before realizing that it doesn't mean shit if you can’t win. It’s same concept just on a more high school brawl level. “I’m not joking you can’t just pick a fight with a noble!.” She yells back though not with her usual intensity or explosiveness. “If you’re not careful you’ll get seriously hurt even killed!.”“First of all I did not pick a fight all I did was tried to give his girlfriend’s perfume back to him but it kind of backfired.” You explained to her before motioning to yourself and skimming the details. “And due to the way the conversation went he challenged me.”You shrugged before being grabbed by the arms by both Louise and Siesta who look worried.“Why are you so concerned?” You asked a little curious. “He probably hasn't had a serious fight in his life, I have been a soldier for a good portion of my life. I'm not really worried.”Of course you won’t let your guard down against him and you learn from your country’s enemies of what an overconfident foe falls. However considering his ego has to be supported by something other than hot air, which you theorize it’s probably his magic. So you’ll be facing in battle against a magic user for the first time.Not counting the one where Louise contracted you if it can be called that. “You should be, you idiot.” Louise responded back. “Even if you are a soldier no commoner has ever defeated a noble in one on one combat! Not to mention Guiche despite being a womanizer is the youngest son of family who devote themselves in military affairs of the Tristain Military.”Military affairs? So is that the reason why he’s was so confident before or at least one of them.
>>26767735Your eyes narrow carrying a cold feeling and you feel a sense of strange calmness inside you not unlike that of the patrol of yesterday in which was an ambush and a sudden skirmish.This was a look of one wanting to know everything and prepping themselves for an offensive. You place your hand on kid’s shoulders who now looks at you with a slightly frightened look alongside Siesta who seems to be shaking at the sight of you now.“Miss Valliere, if you want to ensure of my victory then I will need to know everything about the enemy before me.” You said steel within your voice cold yet carrying weight waiting for the briefing from a superior officer before being sent into the line of fire. “I need to know of his combat capabilities, weaknesses, and any medical treatment in which he can use.” Though stunned by your expression now she nodded and agreed to tell you everything she knows without about him. He is a Dot mage and from what you can remember which is the weakest level but he specializes in earth mage in practically turning them to Bronze Golems he call Bronze Valkyries to do battle. As for medical treatment she mentions that water mages have the capability as healers but depending on how serious the injury is will require a higher level mage in turn. There are potions and such but will require lots of money and doubt he’ll carry on his person considering who he’s fighting against. Finally weakness while you can tell at first glance he’s a wuss who may not be able to take on a cadet back home but with the magic may prove to be a problem so in order to remove the obstacle you take out the conduct of the power. The wand, the kid explains to you that by gathering ‘willpower’ and using their ‘wand’ they are able to cast their spells so you can take out any one of those two essentially victory is assured.
>>26767713Knowing how to handle a sword =/= knowing how to fight.My bet is on the military man with a mere stick but who has been fighting for 5 years , not on the blueblood fop with a nice sword but who has probably never seen violence up close and personal at all...
>>26767743By this time the kids who were picnicking left to probably go join Guiche while Siesta left having left because she couldn't bare you facing these odd once hearing Guiche’s golems leaving you and the kid. You decided to take the time to examine your weapons once more before asking the kid. “Are these types of duels to the death, first blood, surrender?”“I don’t know.” She shakes her head while looking over your shoulder curious on what you’re doing. “Normally, it’s decided before the match but these fights were banned due to them fighting towards….”Her eyes widen as if having some realization. “That’s it! Duels are forbidden now! So if we go over now and apologize then we can clear this misunderstanding.” >What do you say or do?>Sorry but it’s 6:30 in the morning and I’m going to sleep if this thread is back on when I wake up then I’ll continue.
>>26767713He is a soldier, he knows how to do close quarters combat with a rifle properly. Pretty sure they educate soldiers on the martial art of rifle combat as that's been going around even before napoleonic era. + he's older and a war veteran and because of his training, he should be physically superior as well.
>>26767756Grab her by the scruff of her neck, and calmly but firmly say:"We. Do. Not. Apologize! If you want people to ever stop teasing you and take you somewhat seriously, then you must stop rolling over the moment they start pushing!"
>>26767756Great You know what? Fuck it! we are not trying to beat bronze golems with are fucking rifle, we are knee capping this fuck before he has a chance to do shit.fuck that honor bullshit, this fucker knows how to fight, he knows what he signed up for.Take no chances.
>>26767796Do this, Its about time we made them realize who they're fucking with, we are not some god damn slave! we are a free man.
>>26767756"Apologize? For what? For giving him back his girlfriend's perfume, which we had no way of knowing, and practically shooting himself in the foot by cheating on his girlfriend? For being a self absorbed twit? Hah! Sorry, but no. Besides, I highly doubt he'd just let me off like that anyway."
They have, like, healing magics and stuff, I say we take the duel and shoot him in his legs. One bullet should be enough to end the duel.
>>26767825>>26767805>>26767778Well Op as suffered fatal user exception, now what?
>>26767831WASTE OF BULLET!
>>26767756"No apologies Louise. If we back down now and show weakness we'll be seen as an easy target by everyone else, even if they don't go for duels they'll make our lives as horrible as possible. And he will never stop hounding after us.Never show weakness, go for the throat, if all you get is one shot then make it a good one, make sure everyone knows that you are not to be messed with.I am your familiar. That means my job is to protect you. I am not going to let them act this way towards you any longer. Don't worry, I have this under control. I am far scarier than he is, he's the one in danger.">>26767755We're also have the Gandalfr runes on our hand, so when we wield anything designed to be a weapon, which includes our pistol and rifle, we become tougher, stronger, faster, by an extreme margin.
>>26767931we are still taking on fucking golems of metal with a fucking plastic stick with the option of shooting them.WHO THE FUCK WOULD RIFLE BUTT?
>>26767931Otherwise this, but none of the admitting being a familiar. He is a soldier who fought for the freedom of his people, he won't swear loyalty to an autocrat that easily.He only plays the familiar part because it provides him food and lodgings.
>>26767971Why the hell would we fight the golems in the first place? We just need to get past them, that doesn't mean we need to fight them. Always target the summoner first.
>>26768030yeah and all they have to do is land one solid hit on us, which would be like taking a bronze warhammer in the face, which are standard issue gear is going to do shit all againstor we could just kneecap the fucker and be done with it.
>>26767971We've got a Mosin Nagant and a Nagant 1895 Revolver that has already been used to bash people in the head. We don't have a plastic stick. Both are effective bludgeons and the Mosin has a Bayonet.Besides, we don't fight the Golems, we take him down before he gets one out. Either by shooting him once or bashing him if we can close the distance quickly. Or we find a way around them.>>26767999They do have some nice food that we've acquired.
>>26768055If you were kidnapped and you woke up in some strange country and was told that you're now somebody's servant, except you don't get paid. You probably wouldn't accept that immediately if at all, I mean it's been what? 1 or 2 days?
>>26768098Hell... He's been incredibly tolerant and understanding, considering most military grunts would have gone straight for the "rampage" part and only start asking questions when they were either forcibly restrained or the last man standing!
>>26767756"Apologize?Do you have no sense of shame?"Anyway, first we need to ask him about the rules. We need to follow them to make this count.Then we take our pistol and shoot out his kneecaps and walk away.Because fuck you.
>>26767890I say it's the perfect way to make sure nobody wants to be on our shitlist. The first one to fuck with us ended up getting carried from the scene with a badly hurt leg and a permanently scarred ego, I say it's worth it. I'm not opposed to scarring his face with the bayonet or bludgeoning him into submission but I think shooting him is way cooler. Also Guiche he was never a useful or likeable character in the series, fuck him. >>26768641>kneecapsOne will do just fine.
>>26768657>One will do just fine.I want him to kneel.
>>26768680Genuflecting is enough for me.
>>26768715Either way, the pain will make him incapable of doing anything against us.
>>26768657It's basic rules of the playground, or prison.When you just get somewhere new like this you start a fight with someone as soon as you can. You don't back down, you make sure everyone knows that if they mess with you that you will hurt them. Brook no insult.
>>26768680We could always just bayonet the fop's knee.>implying you wouldn't want to go full URA with a moist nugget
>>26768755>bayonetYeah, let's give him time to cast his bronze bitches.We do it quick. No need to charge like a retard and run into a wall that the summons in front of us.
>>26768657Yea, but we also don't want to make it seem like we're hiding behind the fact that we've got a special gun or else everyone just thinks we're weak without it.They know what a rifle is, they think as long as they dodge the first shot, they're golden. However, if we just bludgeon him without firing a single shot, we prove that we're strong enough to kill a mage if we want to without being serious. This will make them crap their pants. The concept of guys existing that can beat up nobles with brute force is one thing, the fact that they're also carrying firearms creates a whole new level of terror.
>>26768870But who has time for this shit? Let's just shoot the guy and go eat his dessert. It doesn't matter if they think we need the gun. We have shown that we ain't nuthin' to fuck with.
>>26768911Also we haven't really seen much magic except for the explosion of Louise's. Taking risks is stupid as fuck.
>>26768911He is not a sociopath. He wouldn't just go killing kids for being annoying. Yuri is a disciplined soldier and a war veteran, he wouldn't just open fire on civilians for a petty argument, he is not a fanatic fighting for a totalitarian regime, he is a soldier who fought to form a stable democracy. It wouldn't fit his backstory. Especially since in military they teach you to conserve ammunition.
>>26769172He's been a soldier since his teenager years and he's just been taken hostage by a society of mages.This provocation is the best way for him to snap.Also, we want to remove his kneecaps, which can be healed, not his brain. (Granted, shooting kneecaps isn't as easy as going for center mass, but the moron wouldn't know what we are doing, anyway)
I just realized we have a demo pack and two types of grenades. We could probably think of a plan involving them but we are trying to save supplies. Just pointing out some options.Maybe use the smoke grenade to cover ourselves while we charge. Smoke grenades are easily replaceable with substitutes.
>>26769209I still think we should only shoot him if we're having problems. Shooting a guy leaves a bad taste in everybody's mouth. However, if we just beat everloving shit out of him, there's no excuse for him losing with him having advantage of magic and us holding back. This will make us a living legend and will allow us to make contacts more easily, which potentially could help us to escape should we want to do it.
>>26769435I second the smoke grenade idea. Makeshift smokes are relatively easy to make.This will also make a nice spectacle when we emerge from the smoke victorious.
Unless we can convince him that we, as the challenged, have the right to choose weapons (in which case I say we go with fists) I say we assume the angry child with magic is dangerous and go for the kneeshot.
>>26769486We are a soldier.You don't engage a duel with a soldier. Especially not a lop-sided duel where you believe yourself to be superior due to your magic.The best thing to do is to pop his kneecaps and walk away. He will be healed and no one will fuck with us anymore.>>26769515How about establishing supply relations before using our scarcest ressources?
>>26769517Yes, we definitely need to talk first.Just ask him what the rules are.
>>26769527So,>First blood, maiming, or death?>Since he chose the location, do we choose weapons?>Any outlawed tactics?>Available medical facilitiesWe're going to want to win this quickly and with little subterfuge if we want to gain respect/fear from these brats.
>>26769736Yeah, talk the rules through in a clean manner. We need to show that we are business incarnate - You want to duel? Then tell us HOW you want to duel so that we can adjust how much we need to maim you.
>>26769772Yes, we need to make sure we're in control of the situation and not make assumptions.I say we go to the place of duel and talk out the terms of the duel before accepting. If we get no say in the terms of duel, we refuse it outright, claiming that only an idiot would let his enemy dictate the terms of battle.If he spontaneously attacks us saying something like "enough talk" we shoot the arm he uses to cast or bash him in the face depending the distance.

Rolled 9>>26771234>>26771310but my nat 20 should have bluffed you....
Rolled 9>>26771376Your stats are not sufficient even with a 20. Should have rolled a d100 bro.
>>26771397a natural 20>not sufficientwait are you new?
>>26771418Critical successes are stupid. Your stats are not good enough to fool anybody here no matter how hard you try.
>>26771437Crits are awesome, but not on linear die systems.
I'll agree with you. Now let's stop posting off topic things and just wait for the QM to return.
>>26770624This little kid….You sigh as you grab her by the scruff of her neck like a cat realizing how light she is as you lifted her a few inches off the floor.How in the hell could she be sixteen? A growth deficiency?“Wha-What do you think you’re doing!” She yelled as she struggles from grip before your hardened glare silence her. "We. Do. Not. Apologize!” You stated simply and coldly as you force the kid to look you in the eye, “If you want people to ever stop teasing you and take you somewhat seriously, then you must stop rolling over the moment they start pushing!"You drop her with a small thump as you begin to pack up but not before giving her a smile to break to overly serious mood that you had when questioning her. “Besides what do we have to apologize for in the first place? For giving him back his girlfriend's perfume, which I had no way of knowing, and practically shooting himself in the foot by cheating on his girlfriend? For being a self-absorbed twit? Hah! Sorry, but no. Besides, I highly doubt he'd just let me off like that anyway."If we leave this unresolved it will only get worse if not towards you but the half-pint as well so it’s best to nip this in the bud. You walk forward ready for battle and then stop after realizing one important detail as you turn to the pink haired half-pint.“Where is Vestri Court?”You have never seen someone trip over thin air before and you found it hilarious. After the kid guided you to where Vestri Court is you realized that it may not been needed. A somewhat large crowed of nobles and a few of the help had gathered probably through word of mouth that a fight was about to happen.That meant you are restricted to solely melee combat.Once you get passed the crowd and into the center you see the blond again doing some type of pose.
>>26771539“Ah, you’re here I thought you’ll do the smart thing and run away.” He says as he flicks the locks of his hair. “However I shall commend you for not doing so though the outcome will be obvious.” “Yeah about the…” You began to say but were interrupted by the blond.“You wish to back out; totally understandable as a commoner you must have realized the difference between the two of us.”“No, I’m not backing out.” You denied his claim as you take off your pack and hand it toward the half-pint while warning her not to ‘touch’ anything inside. “Just wondering on the conditions of the duel since I heard that they are banned in this country so is this first blood or when one surrenders and are we fighting with weapons or just our fists?”His eyes widens in surprise probably due to that you’re not backing down and casually asking on the method of the duel however he quickly covers it up before making another exaggerated gesture and posture. “I see of course a commoner will be scared and I must teach you a lesson so until you yield and submit to me then this duel will be concluded.”“So submission then.” You stated simply before moving on to the next issue. “Weapons or hand to hand?”“Please fighting with our fists? How barbaric.” He said scoffing at the idea. “I’ll be using what is natural to all mages.”With a swipe of his rose a bronze set of armor arose from the ground equipped with a spear and in battle position.So this is a golem…“You can use that pathetic stick of yours to fight but know that if you do I will not go easy.” He declares as he points at you.So what do you say or do? >Stick to your fists study the combat capability of the golem.>Attach the Bayonet, quick and fast>Other
>>26771539Fucking obviously. We can't go using firearms when we're surrounded by bystanders.
Rolled 91>>26771571FIX BAYONETS AND CHARGE!
>>26771571Bust his kneecaps.He will be forced to kneel.
>>26771587Yeah, I know but some argued to use them so Yuri had to mention it anyway.
>>26771658I was arguing to use them until now. But I don't think we can really pull a gun with a crowd around us, even if we are really confident in our marksmanship.
Rolled 10>>26771571Ask the people to clear behind Guiche if they do not wish to die. Request somebody to do a countdown and at the moment it's started, use quickdraw on your revolver and destroy the arm holding the wand.
>>26771639I suggest keeping this as a "last option" in case things go bad. Affixing bayonet would give us the same reach as the golem's lance, but we don't want to fight the golem, we want to beat the stupid out of him.I'd personally simply shoulder the gun, dodge the golem, knee him in the guts, remove his rose, and then draw the bayonet and let him have a close look at the edge while calmly describing every painful thing we could do to him with said sharp implement, ending with the fair warning it's exactly what we will do if he ever crosses us again after he pissed himself in fright! Yes this might be a bit sadistic, but goddamn, we have a lot of frustration to work out on a target conveniently stupid enough to expose itself!
Rolled 19I care not how the fight goes but it should end with us saying as follows."I knew you would think me a hickThank god you are so god damned thickYou fell for my ruseOf course you would looseYour reward, a kick to the dick"[punctuate with due action]
>>26771732If they'll go for it we could do this. Otherwise I stand behind my previous post: >>26771606
>>26771606FOR THE REGIMENT! Avoid golem and riflebutt him to the ground. Use your close quarters training.
>>26771783This must happen
>>26771795You fool, we pop smoke THEN charge for the regiment.
Rolled 17>>26771783Yes. Hell yes.
>>26771783I'll try to keep that in mind.am eating not, be back in twenty mins or so.
>>26771870Waiting for Op's a bitchI think he is some kind of litch No words i can find For rhymes that are kindOh great now my balls start to itch.
>>26772383So is this now a Mondaiji crossover quest?
>>26772383>Sorry, Food took longer to be cooked then originally thought.As you eyed the magical suit of armor you unslung your rifle and pull out your 91/30 bayonet attaching its 17 inch spike onto the barrel of your rifle. “So you choose to fight with a weapon of your own very well.” He said while point his rose at you. “Charge my Valkyrie!” The major armor charges towards you though Guiche still seemingly underestimating you is only using its fists rather then it’s polearm.>Roll to dodge and give me a set of action you want to do.
>>26772639Question first: is that golem slow and lumbering, or agile and fast?
Rolled 9>>26772639Shouldn't the runes kick in right about now?Anyway, run in his direction, dogde the golem and beat him up.
Rolled 9>>26772639I believe that if we were to weave around the "Valkyrie" and slam the butt of our rifle into the blond kid's head, then that would bring about a quick and decisive end to this duel.
>>26772639As of right now quick enough as an slightly above average person.Since Guiche is controlling one Golem he has more control as to say him summoning several/ at once
Rolled 8>>26772639Rolling dodgeWhile dodging pop a smoke grenade.
>>26772724>>26772730>>26772741Sasuga /tg/ dice
Rolled 8>>26772639Duck and weave! Float like a butterfly, sting like an angry slavic armed with a bayoneted rifle.
Rolled 13>>26772639Dodge and drop smoke. Deliver beating upon Twit.
Rolled 19Rolling for dodge
Rolled 17>>26772724Maybe we didn't get the same runes. Anyway let's try to bypass the golem and prod the mage with our pointy end. >>26772741>>26772799We gave our stuff to Louise didn't we?
Rolled 10>>26772813DIS ANON, DIS ANON RIGHT HERE!!OUR SAVIOR
>>26772738Okay, so the consensus is to attack while using smoke as cover?
>>26772880Yeah sure, we should be able to make more smoke grenades later using Colbert if we dont know chemistry.
>>26772849You only gave the non-essential stuff such as the extra food you stole/rations, your soldier kit, demolition kit, and construction kit in order to be light as possible
>>26772909Yeah, use smokes as long as they are disposable for us.We REALLY need to work on contacts.
>>26772918Alright then I agree to use smoke to cover our advance. I still say we should stab him in the knee btw.
>>26772918Okay give me a roll to see how effective the smoke bomb is
Rolled 20>>26772967Rollin' the bone...
Rolled 3>>26772967Considering these people dont understand guns this should blow their minds.
Rolled 7>>26772967Rolling for Smoke effectiveness.Maybe the Fop is a dirty sandraker.
Rolled 11>>26772967Rolling for blindness.
Rolled 10>>26772967Too much smoke.
>>26772983Anon, I love you.
>>26772983I salute the god'o'war
Rolled 16I feel mages will now become very paranoid towards us.Also, once we reach him we do a disarm and lock.
>>26772967wait, is this the phosphorus or the other kind of smoke grenade?
>>26773013They're RGD-2 Smoke grenades.
>>26773013It's an RGD-2 smoke grenade.
>>26773115Highest Roll: 13You anticipated the Golem to be slow or stiff in its movements however that was not to case as the metal armor got the jump on you as it moved much quickly then you anticipated. You thought that he would get the first blow and try to stiffen your body to take it until….Unlock Specialty: Unknown +3 Highest Roll: 16You feel light as a feather and your reaction time much faster and just as the fist was about to make contact with your stomach you managed to turn to the side dodging it only grazing your armor. You then decided you need cover in order to get some distance from this thing. You decided to pull out one of your smoke grenades pull the tab and tossed it in the middle of the field.“What did you decided to try to throw a rock how-“ Guiche decided to take this time to taunt you howeverHighest Roll: 20An explosion of smoke appeared in the middle of the field and quickly grew as the cloud of smoke not only enveloped your fight against the Golem and Guiche but the entire crowd itself.“What is this?"“I can’t see!”“Is this Magic?” Panicking and complaints arose from the crowd in which Guiche could also be heard making such complaints. The Golem itself is swinging wildly obviously with Guiche not able to see anything neither can the Golem.>What do you say or do?
So, the smoke allows us to get melee range then without the golem following us?
Rolled 8>>26773244Get to Guiche, put bayonet in his leg, back off and wait for him to surrender.
>>26773244Melee range within cover of smoke and give him a good blow with the butt of your rifle to the head. >>26771783Also, this must happen
Rolled 4>>26773244Apply rifle butt to the back of his head, let him sleep his aggression off.
Rolled 13>>26773286Rolling for it
Rolled 16>>26773244Get in close, put bayonet to his chest and order him to yeild.
>>26773244Get in close to him, use a moderate dose of violence to deprive him of his rose/magic wand (snap it to pieces if possible). Kindly ask him to yield while hoping he doesn't so we have a convenient excuse to beat him senseless!
>>26773306>>26773291>>26773269All of you! Have you forgotten an earlier post involving applying a foot into a dick?Perhaps a refresher is necessary.>>26771783>"I knew you would think me a hickThank god you are so god damned thickYou fell for my ruseOf course you would looseYour reward, a kick to the dick"
>>26773306I recommend tripping him to the ground first.
Rolled 8>>26773379Why can't we stab him in his leg and then kick him as he crawls away in defeat?
Rolled 14Disarm with your rifle, I don't care how, rifle butt, stab, shoot, punch, whichever. Just disarm him.
>>26773405Stabbing him in the leg will not stop him from using magic. Disarm him first violently. I recommend breaking his arm with our rifle.
>>26773459I will have his leg mutilated in some way before I go to sleep. If we stab the fag all we need do is stay out of the way of his golem while he bleeds out. He'll need to surrender eventually.
>>26773459>>26773424>>26773405Ok guys I think I know how to proceed.>Violent disarm>PUSHSANDRAKER.EXE>Fop is now on the ground>stab knee>apply feet to dick
Rolled 17>>26773523I am backing this plan 100$.
>>26773424Just disarm, don't hurt the kid.
>>26773523Maybe not stab him, that could cause an incident within the nobility or what have you.
>>26773570You don't want to shoot his knees. You don't want to stab his leg. Why don't we just surrender and let him think he's better than us?
>>26773502I don't mind stabbing him, but I don't want him summoning more golems. Disarm while he is shocked and follow up with a stab in the leg. After this is done follow up with "This ends now, yield or die"
>>26773662I am one suggesting bashing his skull with our rifle. if there's no bleeding hole, there's no noble toll.
>>26773662I'm all for using him as the punching bag for a litlle demonstation of full contact/krav-maga/whatever flavor of martial art they teach in the military those days. No real need for a weapon if we manage to deprive him of his magic wand, and getting the stuffing beaten out of you in public by a lesser is really shameful!
Rolled 20Why can't we just disarm him and then pin him down with a hold?It's nonlethal. undickish and doesn't hurt anyone.
>>26773680Man fuck the nobles. We were challenged and we asked about the rules of engagement, he does not have the right to complain. Especially since duels are banned. >>26773678I agree that we should do that. I will not back down on the matter of stabbing his leg (his right one preferably).
>>26773793Hey, even the dice gods agree with me.
>>26773662I don't mind this plan, but I don't also mind emerging from smoke with a bloodied bayonet.But Disarm is a must, no matter how it is achieved.
>>26773858Could we disarm him with a funky song?
>>26773804Especially because duels are banned we shouldn't cause excessive harm on him. This is in the eyes of the law a brawl and if we cause excessive damage, we can be held accountable for it. We probably won't, but we might.
>>26773907See >>26773793No chance of fucking up because he can't defend himself due to lack of training (you can bet your ass that he didn't train counter-holds) and because we have full control over force application.No physical harm done.
>>26773907We aren't even people though. We are an animal, a pet of miss Valliére.
>>26773953Yeah, okay, according to their laws, she'd get in trouble on our behalf since we're her familiar... Dunno about you, but this makes it even worse for me...
>>26774000Yea man why should our kidnapper get in trouble?
>>26774033Oh, I don't know, but making her life a hell doesn't exactly sound like the most constructive of incentives to get her to terminate the damn familiar contract.
>>26774087She'll have to apologize. She won't be expelled, she won't cause a hundred year family feud. She's going to have to say 'Sorry I didn't tell my pet not beat you so bad after you picked a fight with it'-
>>26774033If they reprimand her, she will have to tighten the leash on us wether she wants to or not and that will fuck with our living conditions. Worst case scenario, it'll become a scandal and we'll be branded as a rabid beast and everybody will stay the fuck away from us.
So are you now changing your opinion towards NOT hurting him?It might be good to get a consensus. If OP isn't already writing.
>>26774238Good. Then we can go home since we are no longer fun to keep right?
>>26774271That's the best case scenario.Worst case scenario she can't/doesn't want to break the familiar contract for whatever reason, and gets it in her head to "housebreak" her familiar, making our life a living hell...Thanks but no thanks, I'd rather stick to the "get her to 'man' up, fend for herself and realise she doesn't need a damn familiar" option. Less risky and ultimately more enjoyable!
>>26774433And to do that we must first ensure that these children do not challenge us to stupid duels. Like for example we could injure the first one to do so rather painfully, without it being a permanent injury. We can't be playing violent games with bored nobleborn children if we want to teach Louise to not suck.
>>26774582Sorry I had to suddenly do some emergency errands but I'm a little confused on the consensus. One is to stab his leg others are to disarm and others are to break some limb? Only kind of agreement is that we sing a song ?
>>26774582We can ensure it by demonstrating that we could have killed him instantly at the start if we wanted to. Granted this will use one bullet, but it'll scare the shit out of everyone.
>>26774774I'm >>26773793 and I'm against speeches/songs.Just get to him, take away his rose and lock him down with any kind of standard issue hold technique. Then wait for him to submit. Apply pressure if necessary, to cause some harmless pain.
>>26774774Let's go with what the guy who rolled 20 did. >>26773793Disarm, pin and hold.
Your grammar is atrocious. Please fix it.
>>26774907Eh, it's still understandable and not painful to read. Not all of us can be Übermenschen of grammar.
>>26774774Well, we all agree on: rush Guiche, disarm him and put the everlasting fear of us in him.What we disagree upon is how to best do the last part, varying from "a non-damaging armlock + speech" to "shoot a couple of holes into the bastard".I personally advocate a good barehanded beating while making extremely clear (to everyone) we could do much, much, much worse to his sorry self. Having to run around bruised and battered for a couple of days will serve as a much-needed reminder!
>>26775059My personal favourite is knocking him out with the butt of the rifle. When the smoke clears, everybody will see clearly who the victor is.
>>26775059I support giving him blunt trauma. Through fist, elbow or bludgeoning, it doesn't really matter. Afterwards we could give everybody around a good talk about why you don't pick a fight with a war-veteran who has spent quarter of his life in the killing fields.
>>26775022I would beg to differ, but I still kind of enjoy the quest in a weird way.Maybe it's just the basic fact that it's a Zero no Tsukaima crossover. I love those, despite them all sucking.
>>26775286>Afterwards we could give everybody around a good talk about why you don't pick a fight with a war-veteran who has spent quarter of his life in the killing fields.Why the fuck does everyone one to be a melodramatic ass?We are a battle-hardened soldier. Speeches are for insecure people. People who KNOW that they can kill you generally give no fuck about proving anything. They are intimidating just by being there.I'm for a non-violent takedown because it shows that we are disciplined and don't need to lower ourselves to the level of a shitty brat.It's either that or busting his kneecaps with a pistol, which we didn't do.
>>26775840Ah, you misunderstand, I'm not big on giving a lengthy speech. More a good one-liner in the likes of "Next one who crosses me gets it even worse!" and then let the sorry state of Guiche speak for us...
>>26775840well we kinda accepted the duel to show were not to be pushed around.
>>26776166Yes, but we did so in a professional fashion.Why would we suddenly do anything messy?
>>26776178I saw it more as an educational 'don't do stupid things' speech rather than 'don't mess with me'
>>26776178We just need a good one-liner is i'm saying
>>26776224Well, either way:We are an adult in a world where duels are outlawed and we are of lower social standing.It's our duty to end this duell in a way that proves that there has never been any danger for the boy. It means that we won't get shat at for agreeing to the duel and people can still see that we could've easily snapped this guy's neck without even needing a weapon.>>26776262We just ask him if he submits once he starts shaking.
>>26776302Well, I'm going to bed.Please play the responsible adult. There is no point in a dick measuring contest when you are amongst teenagers. It's far better to earn their respect by being responsible.
So from the description OP gave it seems like Tesenturia is one of the small countries in the neighborhood of the Black and Caspian seas, most likely in between them. Honestly it seems like the area around the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic is perfectly situated as OP describes it. Assuming no greater deviance to the timeline other than the formation of Tesenturia the timeline in my mind goes something like thisPre-WW1: The area that will be known as Tessenturia is under control of the Ottoman EmpirePost:WW1: The Tesenturian territory falls under the control of the Republic of Armenia for roughly 30 years until it broke free during the reconstruction period following WWII.Cold War: Tesenturia would become another point for the cold war to take place as the US and USSR each funded a proxy war through the civil war of Tesenturia where Communist and Democratic supporters would fight and the government would change hands constantly.Post-Cold War: Even without the major powers backing them up the seperate factions of Tesenturia would wage war for another good 20 years, this time backed by neighbors, both European, and Asian.Present day: After a series of particularly bloody battles, the more militant warlords, communists, and religious radicals are pushed out or killed off by the Democratic peoples movement, solidifying peace in Tesenturia at least for a little while. Tesenturia is still a focal point and is bloody and battered from nearly 70 years of constant conflict.(Cont)>Pic related. I figure Yuri is either the far left, second from the left, or far right.
>>26776525Tesenturian people in the modern era being hardened by conflict and war are a hardy, and jaded people. If you meet a Tesenturian on the street they will look Russian with a bit of Asian mixed in, a darker skin tone, and more than likely a few scars. While suspicious of newcomers and outsiders earning the trust and respect of a Tesenturian will earn you a valuable friend who will not be the friend sitting next to you in the jail cell smiling like an idiot, but one who concocted a plan ahead of time to not get caught in the first place.
>>26776623btw if this conflicts with anything OP had in mind feel free to discard it. It's just my imagination running away from me while I'm sorting papers at work.
My only problem with this quest is how long it takes for OP to post.
>>26776868Not as bad as Blackjack. bastard plays 5-10 rounds of WoT between posts. So its usually 1+hours between posts.I'm intrigued in this quest for the sheer fact of having an MC in this setting who doesn't suck.
>>26776649....I love it, can I make this canon, I only created Tesenturia mostly focusing the end of WW2 and playing a little with the idea of them being conscripted or recruited in by the Soviets to help defend Moscow. though that's just an idea)Other then then that, I love the background. Thanks Anon!Also for the consensus is a takedown (Either by fists or rthe back of the rifle, disarming, and restraining either to knock him out or for him to say "surrender")Is this what you want?
>>26776951Yes. I'd say when we roll for it, each person states the method of takedown they'd prefer, then it's highest roll wins.Ignoring stupid suggestions of course. (DM's decision)
>>26776951That sounds fine to me.Bash him in the face with the butt of the rifle, disarm him as he's disoriented, snap his wand into pieces, put the pointy bit of the bayonet against his gut, tell him to surrender.
>>26776991Okay, then I will need a diceroll of fourOne for the sneak attack, one for the takedown (Method up to highest roll or agreement), one for the pin or hold (Method up to highest roll or agreement), and Guiche's defense reaction.
Rolled 3, 6, 14, 9 = 32>>26777056Thankfully he won't expect this, and he's in the area of a smoke grenade so he'll have a hard time seeing us coming.
Rolled 20, 16, 10, 7 = 53>>26776951Welcome very much.If Yuri was summoned in this year, being in his early 20's it would probably make him born in roughly 1987-1991 so right as the fighting turned from proxy war to all out brawl between factions. (So right as the conflict turned ugly.) Also joining up at the age of 15 or so I don't imagine Yuri has any blood relatives remaining. Just maybe a few Polaroids of family and of buddies from basic whom are all gone with the exception of Maya.>>26777056Rollin
Alright gotta commute home but I'll continue my thesis and fluff expansion of Tesenturia when I get back.
>>26777085Your mostly right about that though he did have comrade/friends in his barracks, Maya's of note due to her being the only one not passed out in his bunk and also due to some history with her and a few others from basic.
Rolled 20, 18, 12, 17 = 67>>26777056Nice and easy
>>26777085This one should do it i think
Rolled 7, 5, 6, 8 = 26Rolling for Warrior of the mists
>>26777085I personally got a bit more of a 60s/70s vibe from our time when we were in Tesenturia. But that might just be me.
>>26777216Pretty sure that sneak Attack alone Will knock him out
>>26777122Alright back. Now to continue. Once again OP if anything doesn't fit just say so. I'm just writing to exercise my creativity.Tesenturian culture is a strange melting pot of many different ethnic minorities similar to America. The northern and western regions are more dominated by Russian and Balkan ethnic groups, whereas the south and east lean more towards the Arabian and Asian. Tesenturian communities are very close knit, rarely accepting fresh outsiders, however they will do almost anything for one of their own. As such betrayal is one of the worst crimes one can commit, short of murder.Tesenturian fine arts are almost non-existent outside of hand-crafts, vocal stories and music. Also if one were to sing this song in russian or whatever the official language of Tesenturia is this would probably fit for the national anthem.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5j-9cCHkq8
>>26776951Highest Roll: 20Under the cover of smoke you bypass the Bronze Valkyrie and a few that were recently summoned probably in his attempt to cover more ground. Unfortunately their movements seem much slower and stiff compared to that first attack so you past by them without as much as a second glance from hem.Highest Roll: 17Once you reach a few paces away from the blond from under the smoke you see him and a Bronze Valkyrie at his side, his face with a look of apprehension and a bit of fear as he is trying to figure out where you are. You can hear him muttering with chattered teeth “Dammit, where is he? How did he do th-“Highest Roll: 18You didn't give him the chance to finish that sentence as you set your rifle down on the floor and grabbed his non-wand hand and pulled him forward for an uppercut to the chin.The sticky sound of impact echoed as delicate flesh meets hardened fist you can see his pupils shake briefly as you immediately pull back and then punched him straight into the stomach causing him to gasp in pain. Giving him no time to recover you immediately twists his arm onto his back and brought him down into the ground effectively pinning him.“Let go of the wand now.” You brought your face into his ear and whispered. Highest Roll: 14Unfortunately despite the blows to his body and tears falling from his face in fear but despite it he still struggles and you felt a sharp blow on your back probably from the Valkyrie from his side. The pain slowly burns through you but you repress it as you let the adrenaline take over.When you hear the sound of clanking Valkyries coming towards you and one beating on your back you’re in a pinch. So you decided to use twist his arm bit more tightly the joints seeming to be on the brink of either dislocation or breaking.
>>26778249“Your Valkyries with take maybe ten seconds at the earliest to get to our position and finish me.” You said in a haunted tone in your voice as you slowly tightening your grip on one arm and using the other arm to trace his back. “You don’t want to know what I can do in ten second to make you yield so I suggest that you let go of the wand.”The pounding on your back subsided and you see in the corner of your eye the Valkyrie no longer moving but as a still piece of armor. You look to his other hand in which has let go of the rose and what seemed that he has flicked it to prove that he has no other scheme. A heavy gust blew thorough the heavy smoke literally making it disappeared as the large crowd who has surrounded your fight looked at you in shock, awe, surprise, and in no lacking in dropped jaws. In what seem to be tens of minutes to you only cast a couple to them and seeing the reversal of fortune so suddenly you can only guess what was going through their mind.Though one of the things that may be going through their mind is how you appear to be mounting the poor blond. >What do you do or say?
>>26778290twist his arm more"Yield now"
>>26778290Get off of him with no fuss of fluster."Don't think that just because you have magic that you are almighty."Then grab our gear and walk away.
>>26778313>>26778327This, then when he says uncle>>26778328This
>>26778328Backing something along the lines of this
>>26778132A lot of that seems to be canon such as the melting pots and the slight divide between regions.Though betrayal isn't something that common especially due to the series of civil and proxy wars, Loyalty is highly valued to them (especially since a large portion of them have went to some military training and understand such value.)As for fine arts, yeah I can pretty much think of that as well though there a few well known local artists that have drawn 'landscape' pictures,
>>26778290Keep our voice low, calm, and cold. No need to yell. "Guiche, I want you to know that I am merciful. Your title and your magic mean nothing to me. If I wished you dead you would be choking on your own blood. "Twist his arm a bit more for emphasis, not quite to the point where it will break or dislocate. "Yield, now."
Rolled 6 + 3>>26778420Okay so yield now, is the consensus I'll get to writing after I finish eating.
>>26778720Yup, and if he doesn't yield we can always dislocate his arm and find other ways to hurt him until he surrenders.
Rolled 7 + 3>>26778810Do you really want to make a roll to see if he does yield
>>26778882I can't really imagine him not yielding, I mean he's not in good shape, he's in a position that is next to impossible to get out of, and we can break his arm with just a bit more pressure. It'd take a serious level of stupidity on his part for him not to surrender. But on the off chance that he doesn't breaking his arm is always an option.
>>26779552“Yield.” You whispered to the blond twisting his arm a bit more to emphasize why he should. “Now!” “Okay, Okay.” He yelped. “I..I Yield!”He declares out loud so that the audience can hear him and you let go and stand up facing the audience. Overlooking them they have a mixture of surprised, confusion, or both probably wondering what just happened in those few minutes. However you don’t feel obliged to tell them anyway. You look at the blond as he cradles his arm and crouched over in pain.“Don’t think that just because you have magic that you are almighty.” You stated simply as you continued to see his prone form as he holds his arm and your expression softens somewhat. “Put some ice on it, I’m sure nothing is broken but if you’re concerned that something is wrong I suggest you go to the water healers or whatever you call them.”You pick up your rifle and detach the bayonet as you walk through the crowd towards the pink haired half-pint and smile. “Miss Valliere, I will like my stuff back and thank you for not touching anything unnecessary.” She dimly nods at you her face looks like she has seen some two headed monster?Or is this common in this land after the bugbear you’re not sure anymore. You begin to lug your pack and wince..Maybe Guiche has done more damage than you’d realize. >What do you say or do?
>>26780371Sit under the shade of a tree for a few minutes to rest, maybe get a drink, while you examine any injuries you have received.
>>26780429Pretty much this. Also should see if the dragon is close by. We did swipe some food for her after all.
blonde*hostilities*etc. Fix up your writing and grammar. Look at the quest general guides. Seriously.
>>26780371Tough it out for now while we're in full view of everyone. Show no weakness, show no fear. "Well, I don't know about you but I'm hungry. Care to join me for lunch? There's a friendly dragon I was planning on eating with."Find the dragon, get out of public view. Once we find the dragon sit down, get some food out for us to share, and take off our shirt so we can examine how bad it is and make sure we don't have any broken ribs.
>>26780507This but pull out the soufle we stole from guiche earlier.
>>26780462We cant all have english as our first language.
>>26780572American or British English?
>>26780371Walk away like a badass, and when we are a good distance away and nobody will notice, ask how bad it is and get medical aid if necessary.
>>26780507You sure you want to show Louise your ill gotten gains?
>>26780893No thanks. (give it to the dragon)
>>26780893The alternative is sitting there not eating, and we're hungry and the dragon is going to be hungry. Besides I don't think she's going to complain about us bringing food for all of us.
>>26781019Can you give me a two rollOne is to find the dragon and second is to sneak food when Louise isn't looking to the dragon.
Rolled 20, 6 = 26>>26781204
Rolled 20, 18 = 38>>26781204Cmon Dragon food
>>26781217Damn... That blew mine out of the water.
>>26781228>>26781237If only I could roll so well in the other quest thread I'm following.
>>26781249By far the best roll I have ever seen recently was Wrenloft's roll at the climax of Valkyrian Mercs Quest
>>26781285Hands down, that was awesome. If I remember, I witnessed that firsthand
>>26781285THAT was awesome.You as hype for the sequel as I am?
>>26781292Nice. I recently looked into VMQ after the SWQ89 Deadliest Catch one shot. The one roll obliterated my sides.
>>26781318Of course.>>26781321And after all of the bitching at Wren to stop rolling. Lo and behold, he becomes our savior that the legends told of.
>>26781318Definitely. My only complaint is what happened to the Var Mk2? did Jager leave it onboard the exploding superweapon? Cause that weapon was awesome. An mg34 with a great sword attachment and ability to launch grenades. It's ridiculous but awesome.
>>26781340I'm still gonna bitch at him in the sequel. Dude draws his powers from our rage.
>>26781356I would assume that it was destroyed along with Excalibur. But the most troubling thing is the fact that there could be something lurking in the mine Arthur was working out of. Something like a Blue Marker...
>>26781318Yeah, I am though I wished that he stuck to the generated characters. I always regretted not joining up sooner to try my hand in making a character.
>>26781404You can always try to suggest a concept or an Archetype via his email.
>>26781414Nah, I'm sure he has plenty.
>>26781447You know, I was hoping we could have a gay squaddie like Jann in the first VC game. He was my number 2 Lancer.
>>26781470I want a crazy medic who has a fetish for femme fatale
ZnT type quest on /tg/...Well now I have something other the MGNQ to watch for.
>>26781204OP? The herald call the forth to post
>>26782040>And it has respondedYou slowly steel yourself once more again it is painful but not so bad that you can’t carry your pack so you assume it isn't that bad. “Well let’s go, then.”“Huh, go where?” The pink haired half-pint said clearly curious. “I have questions to ask on what just happened.”“I’ll answer those later but for now, I have a promise to keep.” You said as you walked ahead.“A promise to whom?” “You’ll see.”Well it didn't take that long for her to see since relying on your instincts you head towards the girl’s dorm and see the blue magical dragon looking up at a window. You waved it down and in turn proceeded to charge at you and licked you silly in the meantime wincing as some of them hit your back.“By the way, Miss Valliere can you do me a favor?” You asked the half-pint in which she asked what you need with some reluctance. “Just some ice, get some of the help if you need but I would really appreciate it.” She opened her mouth probably to have asked the help earlier but then nodded before leaving and making sure she was far away enough you look at the dragon with a small grin.“Guess who got treats?” You said in an amused tone in which gained you a happy gleam from the dragon’s eyes before you hushed it. ”Got to eat this quick though before she comes back.”It nods in understanding before stuffing its face into the leftovers you received from earlier today. While you enjoy watching it east you took the time to examine the damage from your body as you removed your armor and RIC Uniform. Apparently Guiche’s Golem did a number on your back from the pounding you received though checking your sides not enough for any internal damage but it leave some bad bruising.You assumed that if it weren't for the armor you wear underneath that it might have been much worse.
>>26782077“Wha-What happened to you!” A shrill voice that you are starting to get really familiar with and turn to see the half-pint along with the maid from earlier who is carrying a large pack of ice in a basket. “Well it seems that Guiche managed to get a few pun…” You were about to explain before being cut off.“Not that what are those scars!”>What do you say or do?
>>26782093Fuck did i miss something in the prologue?
>>26782093Come clean, tell her how we blow people up for a living and that entails getting shot at occasionally.
>>26782093Just shrug it off and motion the maid to bring the ice."I'm a soldier. Scars are to be expected. Like they say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.">>26782116Yuri grew up in a hotbed of conflict and was a soldier since 15. He's going to have some scars. Read these. Since OP liked them enough to make it cannon >>26776525>>26776623>>26777085
>>26782116We've been at war working with explosives for years. I'm sure we picked up plenty of scars.Anyway i dont see why we shouldnt just explain it as it is. Soldiers get injured all the time dont they? Especially when you've been fighting as long as we have.
>>26782140>>26782158I don't think we need to tell her every explicit detail of out past. The majority of soldiers don't talk about what happens or only give sparse details. We can give her enough details to at least let her know who we are but not the specifics of it. Growing up in war is not a thing one talks about with a non-soldier.
>>26782093"Just reminders of luck and carelessness."Point to each of the scars in turn rattling off dates, locations, and causes.
>>26782151Well he was a cadet at 15, training is roughly six months to year depending on the service, this is also accelerated if you were emergency transferred to a unit as part of the Reserve Corp.
>>26782093"I am a soldier" should suffice for explanation, and we should thank her for the ice.
>>26782093"I already told you, I'm a soldier. I joined up when I was 15 years old. You get scars when you go to war. I'm not dead and that's the important part."
>>26782229So the consensus is to remind her that we're a soldier.Also how specific you want to get?
>>26782377Not very. Along the lines of >>26782178>>26782151
>>26782377Just tell her that we did some fighting. Let's not tell her the brutality of "modern combat".
>>26782377i believe consensus was to only tell her what as little as possible without being a cryptic dick
>>26782377Keep it simple. The only girl worthy of comparing scars is Best Musketeer.
>>26782400Have to do something, be back in a hour at the latest. Sorry.
>>26782598OP, if you have to go fap to Agnes until your dick gets all red and sore, just say so.
"I've spent good chunk of my life in war." "For now, that's all I've got to say about that."
Since OP will be gone for a while I suppose I'll add in more about Tesenturia. Once again anything I write is up to the discretion of OP on cannonThe Tesenturian spirit is one of resilience and determination, even when outnumbered and outgunned. A common joke is that a Russian can survive a blizzard, and an arab can survive a sand storm, but a Tesenturian can weather a hail of bullets in the forest of knives.Most children learn how to service a gun long before they learn to spell or count. This and a communal protection of the young has helped the Tesenturian people not die out in their small country. By the time they reach adolescence a child has more often than not survived at least one battle if not participated in it. Teenagers will usually choose one of a few ways in life. Either join the local militant faction, stay with the local community, or leave the country. However the number that leave the country usually only do so to receive higher education and then return. Upon returning the teen now usually an adult will either stay with the home community to better it or use the education to better their chosen faction.
>>26782598You gave a shrug and thank both girls for the ice as you lay yourself on your stomach and the girls placed the bags of ice on the bruises on your back. You felt chill as your body begins to shutter involuntarily but at the same time also felt good if not a little numbing. “I already told you before Miss. Valliere , I am a soldier and well these are reminders of carelessness and mistakes.” She slowly nods while staring at your scars as well as the dragon and Siesta and frankly you feel a little uncomfortable. “What did you expect? Did you think I was lying before?”She suddenly stiffens as she stands straight at attention, not bad posture for a first timer. “W-Well no, I mean yes!” She stutters trying to get her story straight. “I mean when you first told me that I thought you were joking until you asked about Guiche and the fight.”“Information is power, Miss Valliere.” You replied to her while giving off a small smirk. “It could have gotten a lot messier if I went in blind.” “B-by the way what happened during the fight, we didn’t see what happened and how did you managed to do that!.” She asked probably asking on how the information she told you worked out and you did explain in great detail (excluding the threat to Guiche) in which she nods in understanding or tilts her head in confusion during parts of your explanation but overall she seems to get what happened and accepts it. However while you’re glad you managed to convey what happened but the uncomfortable feeling in your chest swell as the staring from the maid and the dragon at you continues. While normally you’ll just shrugged it off but since you’re shirtless and on your stomach gives you a helpless sensation in which you usual try to avoid.“Um Siesta, why are you staring?” You asked the maid as the staring is fueling your sense of weariness.
>>26783459“Oh” Her head snaps up as she gives you a warm smile and her cheeks were slightly reddened. “Besides members of my family, I’ve never seen another member of the opposite sex half naked before so this is a new experience.” “Kyuu” The Dragon cries as it licks you in the face again.>What do you say, do, or ask?
>>26783404Tesenturian Democratic Peoples Movement.The DPM was one of the major factions in the post soviet civil war. Founded on the belief that people deserve the right to grow and think and live without fear of bandits or persecution based on religion, gender, or ethnicity. as of recently the DPM gained control over the majority of the county after driving out the Islamic zealots and the major warlords.
>>26783463First things first is to keep the ice pack there. Make sure the swelling goes down. Then. "Well Siesta get an eyeful of the male gender." Then we should probably go and collect the smoke grenade if someone hasn't already stolen it. A spent smoke grenade can be re-purposed into a frag with ease.
>>26783554Yuri also picked up all the equipment even if used, Yuri also took the empty ration box remember?
>>26783463"Very well Siesta." Pet the dragon, best girl is best.
>>26783404Most of that about Tesenturia is true.However that most children learn how to service a gun is a stereotype among international community (or rather the joke of invading armies) though most have seen bombings, and aftermaths of battles
>>26783577Oh man if we can find rest of the materials we could make a ration box guitar. Assuming the box was wood. Then we can attempt to play some songs of home.
>>26783606true, irukuku is best girl
>>26783637We could just, y'know, ask Louise and Siesta if they have guitars in this world.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRRGYEFZF4A
>>26783637The day rations are made of tin or some type of scrap metal.and is one of the reasons why member of the Reserve Corp was prosecuted for mugging officers who ate their meals outside since a ration box was used as a weapon.Military stereotypes label the reserve corp that anything they can use get their hands on will be used as a weapon.
>>26783680True but making our own just appeals to the scavenger in me.>>26783683Only because it's true. When you have to defend your home anything will become a weapon. From tin can lids to chopsticks.
>>26783727What about soup cups?
>>26783727>>26783738Its really amazing how many thing can be lethal in a hostile environmentor maybe im just a sociopath
>>26783463So anything else besides petting the dragon and let Siesta stare at our body?
>>26783606Well i guess we could say its for science
>>26783923A tin can lit can be cut into a knife shape. Chopsticks can be jammed through the ears into the head, and a sharpened pencil can server the Femoral artery. Humans are surprisingly delicate.>>26783949Let the ice cool on the bruises. It's not like we don't have all the time in the world at the moment, but when we are sufficiently cooled off we should probably look for Prof.Colbert again."If it makes you embarrassed you are not obliged to look."
>>26783949After a rest we could seek Colbert, as we had earlier.
>>26783998A credit card (or anything made the same way, really) snapped in two at a proper angle makes a surprisingly good one-time shiv.
>>26783998>Humans are surprisingly delicateNo we just know how to kill each other really easilyFor instance you can kill a bear in one punch
>>26783683>anything they can use get their hands on will be used as a weaponGather around children, let me tell you about the time comrade Chekhov killed 20 rebels using only a toothpick, two flares and a tub of pudding.
>>26783998Not really. We just know the best ways to kill each other. Most of you body if fairly resilient. In fact you can live with about half of your organs missing if you get a doctor to patch you up fast enough.
>>26784081you wont live very long but yeah this
>>26783949i forgot, since you guys want to see Colbert. I need a roll
>>26784081A bare human is pretty damn delicate. The only reason the body is resilient is because we are smart enough to be able to batch ourselves up.>>26784067Are you trying to give the children nightmares? You know that they found pudding inside his skull.
Rolled 3>>26784120Time to find us an egghead.Captcha>intellectual dowethI think captcha is onto something here.
>>26784121That why as soon as we existed we started wearing furs and beating this shit outta things with clubs
Rolled 3>>26784120Maybe he'll show us his primitive engine.
Rolled 19>>26784129>>26784135>>26784140Colbert has dissappeared into thin air.
>>26784121There was a man who was knocked out by a lamp and tossed about by a tornado in the states. walked away with a few broken limbs and appendages. Really as long as you're not bleeding profusely you will probably live, even if crippled.
>>26784260Tornadoes have a record of lifting and dropping things without breaking them though. And it's rather easy to begin bleeding, even internally.Also I think we might have hit auto-sage
>>26784301Yep, update archive and start a new thread?
>>26784315We should probably just let this one hit at least page 9 or 10 before starting a new one but yeah update the archive
>>26784301Oh no. It broke him alright. It broke his face, and his ribs and his arms, and his hip...
Also a list of things to acquire at some point.GuitarBoozeSmokesA journal to write ideas and schematics in.
>>26784120“Very well, Siesta.” You sighed while petting the dragon though you feel like a fish on a cutting board and wish you have your pistol in your hand right about now but you set that feeling aside and let her watch. You spend the rest of the time just having small talk, something you were never good except with your comrades let alone teenage girls but you bared with it and found a refreshing feeling despite the politeness of Siesta towards the Half-pint and the noble altitude in vice-versa. After the ice has melted and prevented the bruises from swelling some time has passed. Now that you feel better and put on your armor and uniform you thought about trying your hand at finding Colbert again. After explaining that you want to try finding Colbert again the half-pint began to mouth a protest but sighs and decided to return to her dorm and prepare for dinner. Siesta has invited you to have dinner with the help since apparently word had spread rapidly about your victory against Guiche when she went to get the ice. Also the blue dragon decided to go fly towards the forest obviously bored at the small talk at some point.You thank her for the invitation as you then try to find Colbert once more.Highest Roll: 19Decided to use your instinct that helped you find the blue dragon before it led you to Colbert’s Lab/Home. After a few knocks on the door the door opens to reveal the bald wizard. >What do you say or do?
>>26784523I believe it was enquire about going home, and joking about spacetravel.
>>26784523Greet him and ask if we may come in
>>26784523Well lets see according to last time we wanted to find him we were looking for general information on the world. Also we should ask him if he knew what our pistol was, since he apparently told louise to be careful of it.
>>26784523"Good afternoon (or evening) Professor. If you are free at the moment I would like to speak with you. Specifically about this world and the circumstances of my transportation here."
>>26784523So greet him, ask about general information about the world (Need more specifics), ask him about your gun, and ask how you can return home
>>26784754Do we have consensus?
Ask him if there will be repercussions for beating the crap out of Guiche.
>>26784754Also, ask if you can talk inside. You don't necessarily want to talk about your gun out in the open.
>>26784839So consensus is to talk inside, ask about general information (Be specific), talk about the gun, ask for a way home?Is this the consensus
>>26784871yup. As far as the general information I suppose asking about the whole magic thing as well as the political climate. It would be nice to know if war is going to break out soon.
>>26784882Well you already learned about the basic of magic from the teacher who got her classroom blown up by Louise but political climate is okay I guess.
>>26784940oh and the consequences of handing guiche's ass to him on his bronze platter
>>26784953Sorry, but I'm starting to past out on my keyboard. so I'm going to sleep. if the thread is still on then I'll continue
>>26785073It probably won't be. Just make a new one when you feel ready too. Night.
