Welcome to back to Desert Maid Quest!You have been stranded on dangerous desert island by a horror only known as Beth. After recruiting a team of maids, clearing a haunted mansion filled with ghosts, shadow demons and a shoggoth you have freed a maid from enslavement. After recovering a strange artifact from the bottom of the pool you have completed exploring the mansion and are preparing to head back home.Previous threads:1-9: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27186819/Character sheets and maps:http://imgur.com/6OWs7cD,BCWTWWB,0YQdtM3,JV23SWe,LQzc0RD,LhcHG0W,NrVetIp
Where we last left off...>99The surface remains placid, but your eyes notice that long piles of the pond scum are trailing from the water's edge as if dragged by something large. You decide to take the opportunity and to blast a hole in that lake. The arm seemingly senses your intent and begins to emit a high pitched whine. Blue light begins to flow down the arm from the shoulder and you feel it pool in your palm. You raise it in front of you. "Yippe-Ki-ay..", a bolt of blue plasma erupts forward and explodes through the pool, accompanied by a howling scream and slams into the thin stone wall. The rock shatters and falls away, revealing just how close that pool was to the cliff edge. "..Motherfucker!" You expect the water to rush out, but it responds by clinging to the edge of the pool. The pond scum swirls revealing teeth and eyes and sucking organs all twisting, folding into themselves and re-emerging, but slowly falling towards the hole and the rest of its falling bulk. You feel a muscle in the base of your brain twinge. That wasn't a swimming pool. that was an honest to Yog shoggoth. You praise your luck as the last of its pseudopods are dragged through the hole and is dashed against the jagged rocks. The sharp points tearing the amobiec horror to shreds as it tumbles into the sea. You shudder to think of what it would have taken to kill that thing and are grateful that you won't have to deal with it in the future,After a few moments the acidic slime clears the basin. It is safe to explore now.+30 XP for cheap shotting a lovecraftian horror.What now Chosen One?
>>27221427You all cheer your victory against the protoplasmic horror. Tracy and Evelin confirm that whatever was there before is now long gone. You walk up and test the walls of the pit, checking to see if they are still coated in acidic ooze and if they can support your weight. They pass and you climb down the rough stone face. Sitting at the bottom of the pool you find a small black stone. Its surface seems clear but the many disjointed faces seem to flow together in a manner that makes you heard hurt. You ask the others and they both agree that its something powerful. You put the stone in your pocket and decide to let Yuriko analyze it when you get back to the mansion.Where to now?
>>27221438The stone you recovered. You are currently in the pool room.The time is ~4AM
>>27221448Rushing today jeez. Heres the stone.You are at 36XP
Ask Evelin if she needs to get anything from the basement (such as personal belongings or her coffin).If she can make due with what is back at the bungalow, then head there.
>>27221522Evelin and Tracy reach over the slick edge of the pit and help you scrabble back up the edge. You wipe off your pants and pocket the gem. Evelin shakes her head when you ask if there is anything she would like to bring from the mansion. "Every thing I had I lost when I was stranded here. The rest of the crap here is mine now that we lifted the enchantment, but there isn't anything left but regret and dust.Only thing I would want to do is bury the remains of those maids. The sooner we leave the better."
>>27221522This, though I hope that elemental is gone from outside
>>27221834Then let's get a leaving then. Try and sneak past elemental first I guess if its still there
>>27221834Alright, then let's get going. Grab out loot, and look out the front door to see if the elemental is gone. If it is, then let's get back to our place on the beach.

The sky is beginning to lighten, but there is no sun out. "Looks clear you say as you open the door and head out towards the tree line. Half-way there your foot steps on a thin outcropping of rock. The brittle basalt snaps, crunching loudly. the sound is met with thundering footsteps. The elemental charges from behind the mansion and barrels down on the three of you.Fight or Flee?

Rolled 20, 3, 35, 85 = 143Your powered armor twitches as you briefly contemplate fighting the hulking animate pile of pissed of jungles, but you remember how it swiped its arm through several dozen trees when you first arrived. Looking back to the jungle you call out to your maids to make a strategic retreat. "FUCKING BAIL!" you scream. Evelin is already screaming past you in a flurry of little bat wings. Tracy drops to all fours and bounds to the tree line. Your shoes dig into the stone and you take of behind the two. Seconds after you cross the treeline the elemental slams in behind you, breaking tree limbs and hurling stones at the party. "Follow me" Evelin cries, her sharp senses leading you back towards the secret sub base. Roll Athletics to escape.I'll take the first 7 1d100sNumber to beat is above. Do not lose this roll.

The monster is relentless in pursuing you. Several times you jump over a fallen tree, only to have a small boulder explode over your head as it collides with a nearby tree. Evelin at one point had to grab Tracy around her waist and lift her over the elemental's head as the thing closed the gap. At one point you burst into a small clearing. Waist high grass teems softly in the wind as you look around for your companions. They are missing. You panic as the elemental bursts out, a large palm tree trunk in its hands. You take one step back and the world disappears. All you can see is darkness until you pull your face out of the dirt and see Tracy and Evelin. Tracy motions for you to be quiet as you huddle down in the deep hole. The monster thunders around, swiping its club through the grass, but after a short while it loses interest and returns to the depths of the jungle. You are safe. The party clambers out of the pit and dusts itself off.+10 XP for losing the monsterXP:46
Some time later...8AMAfter a harrowing trip through the jungle you reach the clearing that leads to the beach were you arrived. The entire beach has been transformed. Clean, white sand stretches as far as you can see, raked clean of sticks and leaves and sharp shells. The water is crystal clear, exposing the many reefs, wrecks and sunken planes what were undoubtedly drought down by Beth. You look for the broken-down bungalow by the little nook in the cliff wall, but it’s gone. The Wooden structure has been completely torn down and a stunning modern structure erected in its place. Concrete walls ring the beach house, the strange runic patterns are etched into the stone and hum with the same violet power they did before. Lofted over the sand are spacious bedrooms, enough to house at least another 3 maids, including yourself, Tracy, Evelin and Yuriko. In fact each room looks to be tailored the maid it serves. Evelin’s room has darkened windows and a coffin, all of the knick-knacks from Tracy’s old home adorn her new den and Yuriko has converted her room to a private laboratory. The house is complete with modern appliances, running water, a reactor of some kind (Yuriko wouldn’t elaborate) and most importantly bathrooms. Yuriko was kind enough to make a private bath for you and a giant one for all the maids. The three of you walk into the spacious living room and collapse on the pillow soft furniture and relax. Yuriko brings some fresh sushi she prepared while you were gone.Barrier upgraded- Reactor Powered, lasts 72 hours without power. 50/50 HPHouse upgraded. See sheet for details.You are home safe. What is up for today Chosen one?
>>27222777First things firstTime to clear our bladder. We have been holding it for awhile (HAHA time for mystery toilet fun time!)
>>27222777let's find out what the gem does
>>27222821Spectral roll a 1d4 please
Rolled 2>>27222886Oh this should be fun
>>27222900Thank you. Update incoming
I never thought I'd be so excited to see what a toilet is going to do.
You are exhausted. You have been awake for almost a whole day now. The three of you fill Yuriko in on what happened at the mansion. The dead maids, the corrupted moth, the arm and the shoggoth, and your terrifying run home. Yuriko listens with rapt attention, giggling knowingly when you glaze over the basement incident. Tracy takes the remains of the maids and places them in a slide out freezer that Yuriko built into a nearby wall. You also take a moment to give Yuriko the mysterious gem and ask her to analyze it in her laboratory, along with the piece of powered armor. Exhausted you suggest that everyone take a rest. Tracy agrees and bounds up the stairs to her room. Evelin lazily floats up the stairs while Yuriko simply smiles at you and bows. "I hope master enjoy new home." You thank her and make your way to the master bedroom, stopping before your new bathroom as you figure its time to take a leak in a more civilized facility than an outhouse.
The bathroom is luxurious beyond words. Tile flooring, a leather recliner, Whirlpool bath and and an open area style shower. You could never have afforded something like this back home. Before you can even decide to partake of every facility, the most important one calls. the toilet really isn't anything special. The compact design only serves to hide some comforting features. Heated seat pads, bidet, fold out flat screen tv, robotic syringe tipped tentacle, wait what? With a quick strike the needle sticks into your neck, metallic coils along the robotic arm shuttering as it flexes about. You feel a cool rush through your veins as it injects something into you. You valiantly pull the arm and needle away and make it exactly two steps before your world goes black.
It stays that way for what seems and eternity until you hear the faint sound of hooves clacking against stone. You cannot move, whatever you were drugged with has paralyzed you. The hooves grow closer until the stop beside your back. You cannot see who it is. "My... how did you get here little runt. I would have thought this meeting would have been a tad more...fiery. Let me see the face of the bastard that took my dear Evelin away. You feel a sharp kick to your kidney as you flip over. You are greeted by a tall and lithe demoness standing over you. Her leathery wings fold behind her back, pierced with many rings of differing sizes. Four horns ring her head, peeking out from golden orange hair. They are cut down and capped with circlets that bristle with technological magic. A tight leather crop top molds to her perky breasts and end in a ring of fur about her wrists. Small golden claws peek out from thin fingers. He body is bare along the midsection, her modesty covered in chaps of the same leather. In traditional fashion her feet end in cloven hooves. She clucks her tongue and kneels down next to you. "Now boy. Why don't you tell me your name. I like to know my hard earned meals." You try to talk, but your mouth is dry. The act though brings some feeling back to it. " Well, can you speak little boy?" She asks before kicking you in the ribs again.Well, speak up, Chosen One!
>>27223519Oh god not what I anticipated.I'm assuming/hoping this is just a dream. If so, we need to take control of it and turn this situation around on her!"Then I guess you ain't getting my name then, cause I will NOT be anyone's meal!"
>>27223519"I'm not giving you the satisfaction of a name. But your's is Beth, right?"
>>27223654It might be some sort of test by Yuriko. At least that's what I'm hoping.
Rolled 48, 91, 81, 26, 55, 68, 7 = 376>>27223654You turn your head at the bitch of a demon and hiss. "Then I guess you ain't getting my name then, cause I will NOT be anyone's meal!" Your words are met with another sharp kick to the ribs. This one hurt. You close your eyes hoping this is a dream and try to assume control. "Oh no honey, this is a dream. My dream. Not that you could hope to dominate me with that pathetic excuse for a mind. A filthy one at that. Had I known you were into those things I would have come better..equipped. Her clawed hand grips your cheeks as she kicks her hoof over your prone body and straddles you. She pulls your face in close and locks eyes with you. A cold feeling grips your chest. You stammer out, masking your fear. "I'm not giving you the satisfaction of a name. But your's is Beth, right?". She doesn't react, though lifts an eyebrow. "Don't you know it is rude to call a lady by her name like that." Her nails dig in deeper. "You will call me Mistress Beth." Her eyes begin to glow. "Now little boy, you will tell me what you are up to. Did you think I wouldn't notice parts of my island suddenly disappearing from my domain?" Your body feels weak and your mouth begins to move on its own.WILLPOWER SAVING THROW!I'll take the first 4 1d100s.I would not get a 1

Rolled 74, 63, 70, 68, 33, 50, 12 = 370>>27223808> 56 < 91You feel Beth's mind slowly worm its way into yours. She hasn't gone very deep but you can feel her gently tearing into your will. You remind yourself of an old trick to beat lie detector tests. As long as you tell some truth you can hide the rest. Not that you had anything concrete planned do far. Your mouth begins to move by itself. "I'm not planning anything...except getting others here to kick your ass." She laughs. It is deep and booming in this dark place. You feel unnerved by it. "Others have tried. Your little Tracy. Her man tried too. You should see what I've done with him. He will be so happy to see his little fox toy again." Her words bite in a way you don't like. So do her claws. One digs in and draws blood, which Beth is happy to lick up. You notice her tail flicking about. It suddenly darts down to your waist line and sets about undoing your belt. "Now little boy. Would you kindly tell me who you're working with. I know you have my vampire and that little fox bitch."FIGHT ANON! FIGHT IT!WillpowerI'll take the first 4 1d100s

Rolled 9Come on
>>27224018Good show old boy! I assume he is dead though
>>2722401880>74You find the clutch on your brain and let the V-Tech kick in. Your mind finds the little ridges of Beth's influence and hooks into them. You muster some strength. Feeling surges back into your limbs and all sense of gentlemanly conduct goes out the window. "Tell me little bo-" Beth tries to ask before getting a solid haymaker to the jaw. Though she is easily 7 feet tall and a demon, she goes down hard, spinning once before landing a few feet away. " I'll tell you who I work with you bitch." You hold up your dukes. "Sheamus and his brother Grady. The Mc'fisticuff brothers would love to tell you all about our plans." You ham it up, letting the subconscious nature of this dream world feed off of your confidence. Beth begins to fade into the dark. "I guess I'll have to teach you to be a gentleman before I rip you into pieces meat." The dark envelops her as you cheer your victory. The dream fades into cheers of an illusory crowd as you awaken in a darkened lab. You find out why you couldn't move. More robotic tendrils like the one on the toilet have you completely restrained. Your pants are also dubiously missing. You take a look around and see that you are in Yuriko's laboratory. She is hunched over a console with her back to you, furiously typing away, only pausing to glance at read outs. There is a slowly building feeling in you, but you push it aside as a side effect of whatever she darted you with.What do you do?+15 XP for sending Beth to the moon.51XP total
Come up behind her and see if you can see what she is recording
>>27224179Turn to Yuriko."Was tipping off Beth that you're working with us a part of your plan?"
>>27224240You are helplessly restrained. You could try and struggle free, though its not likely.
>>27224179Why are my pant's off
>>27224249You speak to Beth, trying to stifle your anger. "Was tipping off Beth that you're working with us a part of your plan?" She jumps and whips around, a sincere look of fear and panic on her face. "NO! What?! You awake. I so sorry. Try to give surprise. Use wrong chemical. You sleep. Supposed to make you Chin-Chin like tiger." She growls and paws her hand for emphasis. "I no able to wake so I take you here. Strange thing. What happen?" Her cool hands rest on your chest and feel amazing. You are feeling a little sweaty and hot in the lab. It must be all her equipment running. She looks up in your eyes, the crystal blue orbs look to be on the verge of tears.What do you tell her?
>>27224381I'd assume that was necessary for one experiment or another. Nothing to be worried about.
>>27224391well beth was able to bring me into her dream and I punched her in the face
>>27224391"Well, bad news first. It didn't make me Chin Chin like tiger. Whatever that means. It was the wrong chemical and I'm sorry about that.The good news is that Beth is absolutely furious but doesn't know you're working with us. Yeah, I just talked with her. It really was the worst possible chemical for you to use, but at least I got a good look at the bitch."
>chin-chin like tigerWas she trying to make us Naruto? Damn, that show is still on that far in the future?
>>27224625I thought it meant "horny," but if it's a Naruto reference then I guess that's different.
>>27224625pretty sure she was trying to make us really horny then she was going to jump are bones
You sigh. Relieved that it was just a mistake and some strange glitch."Well, bad news first. It didn't make me Chin Chin like tiger. Whatever that means. It was the wrong chemical and I'm sorry about that. The good news is that Beth is absolutely furious but doesn't know you're working with us. Yeah, I just talked with her. It really was the worst possible chemical for you to use, but at least I got a good look at the bitch. I also decked her across the mouth." Yuriko laughs, relieved. "You do good. Ha ha give one to her! Well you safe now. I don't use wrong chemical this time." You have a hard time concentrating on what she's saying. Is it hot in here? You squirm against the restraints. It's getting really hot in here. You tense up, feeling something twitching against your thigh. Yuriko's hands are gently stroking your leg. She giggles and avoids your gaze. There is a heat rising up in your chest. How do you respond?
>>27224695"If you really want to do me, just make sure that they don't hear us."We can stand one last thing before we rest, right?
>>27224695"Aren't you going to let me out?"Continue to squirm a little.
>>27224780Her eyes light up and she giggles. "Other maids... busy" hehee. You strain your hears and hear some thumps and thuds and then a loud yelp from Tracy. You then hear Evelin shouting. "HOLD ON TRACY, ugh who put these things in the toilet. I'll pull it out!" There is another series of crashes followed by a yelp from Evelin. Yuriko giggles again. "Busy for a while" >>27224837"Aren't you going to let me out?" as you continue to squirm against the restraints. Yuriko stands up and removes her coat. She is decked head to toe in a nurses uniform. She looks you over and takes a hold of your uncontrollable member. "You naughty boy. I help you. But first... need sample." She takes out a comically sized needle filled with a green fluid. You scream as she advances, but as she is about to stick you she stops. "Just kidding." She drops to her knees and you feel her icy lips working up and down on you. Whatever she injected you with is driving you wild. A fire courses through your body and buck your hips. You would grab her head and take control, getting some small revenge for taking advantage of you, but you are tied tight. You growl in frustration and lust. She pauses from her oral ministrations. "He He. Like tiger." She goes back to working on you, her right hand pumping away. Just before you finish she stops and snaps her fingers. A small tube descends and attaches to you. It begins to rhythmically pump away. The combinations of drugs and the restraints push you over the edge. You come harder than you have ever come before. Your vision fades, its last sight is the smiling face of Yuriko. "Thank you master" she says and you fall asleep. Some time later you snap awake in your bed. Tracy and Evelin are cuddled up against you. Tracy's tails are draped against you as a blanket. You sit up and Yuriko walks in with some tea and lunch. She sits on the edge of the bed and smiles.The time is 2PM You are feeling rested. What is your plan Chosen one?
We take the rest of the day off. Sit on the beach and drink a margarita or something. Also calling to spend 25xp for event.
>>27225132>Her eyes light up and she giggles. "Other maids... busy" hehee. You strain your hears and hear some thumps and thuds and then a loud yelp from Tracy. You then hear Evelin shouting. "HOLD ON TRACY, ugh who put these things in the toilet. I'll pull it out!" There is another series of crashes followed by a yelp from Evelin. Yuriko giggles again. "Busy for a while"Yuriko is diabolical.As for what next, we should probably figure out a way to get down that cenote. Beth is probably tying up loose ends right now.
>>27225132>>27225295Agreed, can we just take one day off? Have the maids be... maids, for once.
>>27225314You decided that you've had enough adventure for one day. This is a tropical island after all and you should just enjoy your time. The barrier is holding and your maids are safe. You stroke Tracy's tail and she stretches sleepily, making a low rumble of joy. You look at Yuriko and she titters. "Toilets safe. But if interested...." . You shake your head and pat the bed, asking her to sit. You think for a moment about what you and the maids could do with your day. Some options come to mind.Explore the wrecks with your new gear?Research the gem?Look for a way into the Cenote?Have the maids clean up?Bury the dead maids?Random Event?
>>27225487Bury the maids.
>>27225487>bury maids>explore wreaks
>>27225487Bury the maids first, then ask our maids if THEY want to do anything. If they can't think of anything, explore the wreckage.
You resolve to bury the three maids from the Mansion. You gently wake Tracy and ask her about where a good spot to bury the maids would be. She sleepily nods. Yuriko leaves and brings back some appropriate clothing. Tracy wears a black scarf around her neck, Evelin dons a long black sundress and veil. You are given a black shirt and slacks. Yuriko herself puts on a black kimono. You, Tracy and Evelin each make headstones out of drift wood for each maid. When done the three of you take one of the bags of remains and slowly hike up to the cliff where you fought the minotaur. Yuriko brought along her shoulder cannon and uses it to dig out three graves. You neatly place the bones in each grave, making sure to include a small momento in each. A shell, a flower, and the kitty bell. You make it a point to shovel the dirt back into each grave and to plant the headstone. You aren't sure what to say.Any words?
>>27225907"Maids, may you be reunited with the master you served so faithfully and finally find the peace that was stolen from you in the next world. Your constant vigil has not gone unnoticed and should not go unrewarded.And watch over us the living as we battle the corruption that has infested this island. May we bring back the happiness that you shared together so long ago."
>>27225907"Though we did not know them for long, it was easy to see that these three maids, taken from this earth before their time, were truly three loyal and kind women, whose hearts were even kind enough to offer their very killer forgiveness. I would have been most certain that had we met earlier, that we would all have been great companions.May you three find the rest you rightly deserve in the next life. Perhaps one day, when my day has passes, I can finally sit down and have that meal with you all."
>>27225907"Maids, may you be reunited with the master you served so faithfully and finally find the peace that was stolen from you in the next world. Your constant vigil has not gone unnoticed and should not go unrewarded. And watch over us the living as we battle the corruption that has infested this island. May we bring back the happiness that you shared together so long ago." In your mind you apologize for refusing their earlier hospitality and the death of their corrupted friend. You struggle with choosing something religious or otherwise to cap the burial off but remain quiet. Evelin lays some flowers on the graves while Tracy lets out a long shrill howl. Yuriko is mumbling a prayer you don't recognize. the words find their way out. "Though we did not know them for long, it was easy to see that these three maids, taken from this earth before their time, were truly three loyal and kind women, whose hearts were even kind enough to offer their very killer forgiveness. I would have been most certain that had we met earlier, that we would all have been great companions. May you three find the rest you rightly deserve in the next life. Perhaps one day, when my day has passes, I can finally sit down and have that meal with you all." You hear the tinkling of the bell as the three maids fade into view. The demon girl, the cyborg and the cat girl all bow. "Thank you Master. Goodbye." Their spectral voices drifting through the swaying grass. They begin to fade. The catgirl moves closer. "Good luck master. And thank you." She kisses your cheek once more and then fades. Her bell tinkling for a moment after she is gone. You are left feeling an empty joy, though you have done a good thing.+25 XP for burying the maids properly.76 XP total.You all retreat to the mansion. The maids are quiet and simply fiddle about. Where to? Take a dive?
I think we should try to take a dive>airplane>tanker>other wrecks?>find way into cenote?My vote is cenote. Might be productive enough to scout around. Even if we find nothing, it will still be a nice way to test out the gear. Might find some shipwrecks along the way.
>>27226397Ask our maids if they want to do anything. Otherwise, check out the wreckage to search for tools.
>>27226535You want to shake off the lingering feelings of your encounter with Beth. You poke around the house, avoiding any suspicious toilets and dubious faucets. Yuriko did make this place in less than half a day. Who knows what surprises she hid here. You find the scuba gear one for you and the other for a maid. You think about taking a dive, but decide to first ask around. Yuriko is toiling in her lab. She brushes you off "Working on Gem. Strange." . Evelin is sound asleep in her new casket bed and baring another drink you decide against waking her. Tracy is out on the beach. She is running free chasing crabs and butterflies without a care. You think to mention what Beth said about her husband, but pass. You call to her and she comes bounding over and jumps into your arms. She's light. You ask if she would like to go swimming. Maybe find a way into that cenote or search the wrecks. She pauses, her eyes lower "Foxes don't like to swim. I lost my taste for it when Beth changed me." Do you go on your own?Convince Her?Do something else?
>>27226686"Oh, and here I was, just wondering how you'd look in a bathing suit."Maybe we should just do a land scouting mission on the cenote. See if it's still safe from Beth. That girl could be under assault.
>>27226836"Oh, and here I was, just wondering how you'd look in a bathing suit." You tease. She gets a rather grumpy look. "idontknowhow.." she mumbles. "What was that?" you ask, knowing what she said. "I SAID I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SWIM OKAY!" She shouts, her hands lightly hitting your chest. Her tails flick angrily. You laugh. "How can you not know how to swim after living on an Island for years?" She looks away again. "The salt water frizzes out my tails." You snicker, trying to hold it it. She glares and then starts to laugh as well. You both fall to the sand and cuddle and giggle in the warm sun, the sand shifting beneath you as you roll about. You both grow quiet and rest.Will you teach her to swim and dive?Will you explore over land?Something else?
>>27226963>Teach her to swim and dive.Some trust exercises will be good for our relationship points with her. Who knows, she might turn back to liking it again.
>>27226963Teach her to swim, but end the day with that. She isn't ready to go with us on a dive.What it could do is save her life if she fell into the cenote whenever we decide to explore it. We don't want her to not know how to swim.
>>27227056>>27227031Athletics roll to teach Tracy how to swim. 60 is the number to beat. I'll take the first three 1d100s
>>27227209+10 xp for that guy winning roll.You look Tracy in the eye. "Look Tracy, I can teach you. It really isn't that hard. And when were done we can wash the salt water out of your tails." Her eyes widen. "Oh no. I'm not going anywhere near that bathroom. Oh no. Not after those things... Yuriko hid in the toilet." You both laugh. You pick up Tracy, cradling her in your arms. She looks nervous. "Best way to learn is to just jump right in!" She screams as you charge into the water. "NOOOOoooobbrbbllblb." You wade in chest deep and let Tracy go. She immediately starts doggy paddling about. Cheering you point out that she's swimming already. Tracy glares back while spitting out water. You take an hour or two showing her how to tread water, the front stroke, back stroke, how to dive down and hold your breath. By the end she is paddling about, even using her tails to push herself about. She is laughing with joy. Suddenly she plunges beneath the waves. A few seconds later she emerges with a small Tarpon. The fish struggles but a quick bite of her jaws kills it. You both head back to shore and and walk back inside and dry off. Yuriko takes the fish and begins to prepare it for frying. Tracy heads upstairs to take a shower in your bathroom. She emerges in a few minutes wearing her new outfit. "Thank you for teaching me to swim master." She smiles as she sits down next to you on the couch.The time is 6PM What now?
>>27227445"No problem, we can have more lessons later if you want."Just chill and relax for now. This was an off day and we'll make it one until the end. Lets wait until dinner then have a nice friendly group hup when it's all over.And we really didn't get any points with her for that?
>>27227445You know, I'm rather curious what those "things" in the bathroom were exactly. We probably won't find out, but I look forward to more of Yuriko's pranks.I think we should help her with dinner. Chat with her a bit. Tell her we find her surprises hilarious. Ask her what we should use the building material we found for. Talk with her about what she knows of the girl in the cenote. That sort of thing.
>>27227559Tracy is definitely more open with you now. If you want to broach your relationship now would be a good time to do so.
>>27227559She also put on her new maid outfit for you and called you master. What you know of Tracy is that she is very prideful. Her calling you maid in public is a big thing.
>>27227688>>27227649"So, it's 'master' now, is it?"I honestly can't come up with anything better than that. Feel free to ignore.
>>27227649>>27227688I think we're trying to the harem end as was per the original quest name. If so then let's get everyone on equal footing. Do this>>27227631
OP, what are the girls' relationships with each other?
>>27227902>>27227631>>27227966In terms of emotional ranking. Evelin is at the highest. You freed her and restored her heart to her. She is completely devoted to you. Jump into fire level devoted. Tracy is next. She still has some unresolved issues, but is coming around more and more. Today she trusted you with one of her biggest secrets without you needing to convince her. Yuriko is not quite on the bottom. She is intrigued by you. She has a scientific mind so cracking her shell will be a challenge. >>27228027Tracy is comfortable with Evelin now. Evelin is free of Beth but she may still hold some resentment by proxy. Both Tracy and Evelin are grateful to Yuriko for the new home, but very angry (more embarrassed) over the "Toilet incident".You do not know how Yuriko feels about Tracy but she is much much warmer towards her than Evelin. She is neutral towards Evelin at best.
So what should we do to raise her emotional ranking?Telling her about her husband might drop it in the short term, but keeping the secret from her would be more devastating in the long run.>put a hand on her shoulder"Tracy, I'm not going to keep things from you, but I kind of got put under. Knocked out, basically. In my dreams, I got found by Beth, who while trying to interrogate me let some of her own information slip.I don't know how you're going to take this, but your husband might be still alive. From what Beth implied, it wasn't in an entirely 'whole' state. I just thought you should know."I don't know if we should run with it, as it again completely ruins the mood and gives Tracy something to fret over. However, if her husband does show up as some kind of mutant, then Tracy can at least not be surprised by it. Perhaps even prepared to put him out of his misery.
>>27228151Yea, lets go over to Yuriko and see if we can help with dinner, or at the very least chat with her and see how things are going on her side.
>>27228317Do we know this for sure? Beth is a demon and we have no way of knowing if its just a lie. I don't know if we should drop this bomb right now. Maybe right now we should just be nice, say a kind word and then chat with Yuriko.
>>27228365I agree, but I thought it was an important point to raise. We need to make a conscious decision not to tell her (due to not trusting Beth, I guess) rather than to just let the issue go.Maybe ask Evelin. She might know something about what happens to the captured men.
>>27228421>She might know something about what happens to the captured men.We know that some of them get mutated; that minotaur we killed was one of them.As much as it might hurt our relationship with Tracy in the short term, I think we should tell her about what Beth told us about her husband, and the he's going to be sicced on us.Our relationship should be built on trust.
Well which maid will we speak too? Tracy is right next to you, subtly trying to impress you with her new outfit. Evelin is upstairs in her room, presumably sleeping but its getting late so she might be up. Yuriko is busy preparing the fish Tracy caught.Please choose.
>>27228532Yuriko. We already had some fun with Tracy and Evelin can wait until it's completely dark. Plus we can help her with dinner, or at least see if she's not doing anything funny again.
>>27228532Say that Tracy looks adorable in her dress, give her a scratch behind the ears, and then help Yuriko with dinner.It's not the time for bombshells. We should tell her later, however.
>>27228619This. Besides, I think watching her cook can be informative (and make sure there is nothing added in for everyone's safety
>>27228619Seconding this. Especially the complimenting Tracy part. We should show that we notice when she puts extra effort into pleasing us.
>>27227902>>27228619"So It's master now,hmmm ?" Tracy's tail pompfs out in surprise. She hems and haws as she grasps your arm. "I...well... you were so nice in helping fix this place up...and teaching me to swim, and fighting.. I don't know it seems right and..." You scratch her ear and kiss her on the cheek. "You look really nice in that outfit miss Tracy." You lean in close and whipser. "Would you be a dear and sweep the house for any more of Yuriko's pranks.". She nervously nods and scampers off to clean the ragu from her robes and hunt down Yuriko's traps.You stand up and walk over to Yuriko who is busy scooping out pieces of breaded and fried fish and octopus. When you mention you didn't bring in any octopus she giggles in her devilish way. "Leftovers." The two of you set about making the rest of the meal. Cooking some rice, a little blood pudding for Evelin. "Leftovers." is all she says when you ask where the blood came from.Is there anything you would like to say or ask as the two of you privately prepare dinner?
>>27228800"So, Yuriko, I'd like to know how you feel about Evelin. I know that, since she was a minion of Beth, you and Tracy both had some negative feelings against her. "But we're all living together here now, and Beth's control over Evelin is broken, so we should try to get friendlier with each other."
>>27228800ask if she has any ideas to upgrade this place
>>27228800>"So, any ideas on what to do with that building material I brought back? Considering your talents as an architect, I figured you should have first vote. Don't worry, I'll make sure you have some help this time.">"And it seems you're getting a reputation already. Quite the prankster, eh?" Nudge her shoulder a bit. "I don't mind. Not one bit. Helped me tell Beth who runs this place now, after all.">"I'm sure you got opinions on the girls on this island. Like that girl in the cenote. Haven't had a chance to meet her, but I'm sure you're aware of her, right?"Those are my questions, at least. Don't have to do them all.
>>27228934You start with something light and ask about any ideas she has for upgrading the place. She says she can make a piece of equipment for one of the maids or yourself. She has also been pouring over that arm of yours and could increase its ammo count. She could also make some special dildo rounds for the SAR. Lastly, for the house she could upgrade the shield strength or she could recover her automated turret and set it up on the roof. Your eyes start to glaze over as she rattles off design schematics and she takes the opportunity to attempt to drop something into the soup she is making. Before she drops a little pill into it you catch her hand. "Oops! Sorry! It slip. Promise. hehehe." she says. You glare at her.>>27229078>>27228925"Seems you're getting a reputation already. Quite the prankster, eh?" You nudge her shoulder a bit. "I don't mind. Not one bit. Helped me tell Beth who runs this place now, after all, but if you keep it up the other girls will get mad at you, and turnabout is fair play". She stops laughing and ponders for a moment. Seems you really made a good point. She pockets the pill and nods. "I'm sure you got opinions on the girls on this island. Like that girl in the cenote. Haven't had a chance to meet her, but I'm sure you're aware of her, right?" Yuriko's eyes light up. "Yes. I know her. We pen pals. Carrier pigeon. Words only, but good friends. She here before Beth. Name Bunny. She grow many thing. Special thing hehehe." You ask Yuriko about about how she feels about the other maids. "Evelin. Scary. Serve Beth. We fought. Saw her do things. But she different now. She love you. We will see. Tracy is good. She in pain, but less now. Not love yet, but soon. Her tail soft. Nice pillow. Also screamer, but you no hear that from me. We be good friend soon."
>>27229417Any more questions or shall we get to serving dinner?
>>27229417>She says she can make a piece of equipment for one of the maidsBattle Maid Uniforms anyone?>>27229492Get to dinner I say. Might formulate a game plan for tomorrow with the girls all together.I want to do an event, but I will save it till it turns tomorrow. Not sure I want another event at night
Aww, tell her it's okay to play pranks on us, though. That might help her open up a little.
>>27229492>>27229417If Yuriko is pen pals with the girl in the cenote, then we should ask her to notify her of our possible arrival soon. Even if she doesn't want to come to us, maybe we can link our two places somehow, or at least help buff up her defenses.Beth is starting to get really pissed off, and might heavily attack her.
>>27229578Yeah, we might need to be extra sneaky when entering the cenote. Beth is watching.
>>27229573I will need confirmation from the group before giving Yuriko the green light to prank you more.>>27229556You would roll for one of the costumes in the Codex Maidsartes>>27229592>>27229578You ask Yuriko if she could get a message to Bunny about Beth and setting up a meeting but Yuriko shakes her head. "Several months no word. I worry. We need go find first." Time to see how well you two did with dinner. Skill roll. first 8 1d100s. Roll high. Rolling low will be...interesting.
Rolled 27>>27229744>Several months no wordDefinitely need to go over there tomorrow.
Rolled 23>>27229744I'm not so uncouth to confirm my own suggestion, but gentlemen... just think of what could be inside the box. We don't know what Yuriko's devious mind will come up with and that's half the fun.Plus it gives her an "outlet' and a playful relationship with us.
Rolled 85>>27229744Rollin for MYSTERY FOOD X
>>27229417so that turret me wants
>>27229876I rolled better than anticipated I would
>>27229876>Chosen One basically saved dinnerIt would have been weird if it was just Yuriko, right?
The food comes out wonderfully and mostly unadulterated, despite multiple attempts at sabotage (super spicy sauces, mind control nanites, certain wriggling items, really where is she getting this stuff). Tracy comes back slightly frazzled and dumps a pile of booby traps on the table. She glares at Yuriko and growls. "Don't touch my brush again". She turns around and huff walks to the table grumbling about the toilet incident. You then notice her tails dyed purple and green. You stifle a laugh and try to glare disapprovingly as Yuriko comments. "Like Christmas". Evelin drifts down the stairs soon after stretching and yawing in nothing but a long tee shirt. "Mmmm do I smell blood pudding. Oh thank you!" Yuriko bows. "Pleased to eating." You all dig in and make small talk. You tell about the dream you had with Beth, making sure to only mention decking her across the face. Yuriko tells about her dealing with Bunny and how she is worried. Tracy is quiet but sits very near you, her colored tail teasing around you legs. Evelin notices this and grabs your arm, starting a subtle tug of war. You decide that early tomorrow you are going to search for Bunny with Yuriko. You do not mention who is coming with you, not wanting to start a war. You need to settle a few things before bed?Do you encourage more pranks from Yuriko on you?What will Yuriko do with your upgrade?Will you talk with Evelin before you go to bed and who, if anyone is coming with you to bed?How will you try to find your way into the Cenote?
>>27230175 If you left Yuriko to it you would have had a very interesting night. And I would have got to break out my drugged by Yuriko table again.
>>27230266>Do you encourage more pranks from Yuriko on you?I'm fine, so long as it's nothing that serious, nothing breaks, and we aren't accidentally exposed to Beth's psychic interrogations again.>What will Yuriko do with your upgrade?Recover the automated turret and set it up.>Will you talk with Evelin before you go to bed and who, if anyone is coming with you to bed?Talk with Evelin, and take all three maids to bed. It IS the comfiest bed in the house.>How will you try to find your way into the Cenote?I think we should try to find a tunnel entrance.
>>27230293I KNEW it.>>27230266Give the arm to Yuriko and let her upgrade it, but make sure it comes back in working condition. And she can continue pranking, just not going to far with it. Afterwards... talk to Evelin, see how she's taking being free. Is there anything we could help her with?
>>27230266Encourage pranks. They're my absolute favorite thing about Yuriko. The maids are to be left alone, though. They obviously don't consent to anything.>upgradeI think turret is pretty much a given.>CenoteI suspect that there's an underwater tunnel, but there has to be some way to climb down as well. Yuriko obviously has to come.
I have to call it soon guys. Thread is wrapping up. I will prepare your updates for our next game Tuesday at 6pm.Consensus seems to be this on the issues so far. I'll leave the thread open for now so anyone else can drop their vote. Upgrade home with Turret. Will be ready in time for leaving tomorrow.Tell Yuriko that pranking is okay, but to keep it gentle and low key and don't do anything she can't undo.Try and hunt for bunny over land (Luck or Athletics).Talk to Evelin before bed and ask about how things are and Beth ,then take at least Yuriko and Tracy with you
Alright, thanks OP for GMing.
Thanks for playing!
Thought of something regarding pranking: while the Tracy and Evelin cannot be targets, they can be co-conspirators.No better way to bond as a group.
