You are Shax Bonemurdered, and you are getting tired of elves! Apparently they've got your scouts locked down, so you're going into a forest full of guerilla warriors BLIND, and to top it all off, Allonces' brother is apparently the captain of these elves! Which I guess you shouldn't worry too much about since she is a complete pushover, but still... it is a little annoying. You don't know what you're going to stumble into on your way to the Fortress of the Heart, but you do know the going is gonna be rough! But, hey, that's why you're the boss, right?

>no trip>wrong clan name
>>32546532>Ask the tree guys if they can try convincing the other trees to join us.
>>32546560It's early in the morning, alright! Jeez, I forgot all that stuff.
>>32546532>Summon some lizards, have them and the scouts try to stop guerillas from bleeding you too hard while you make double time to the fort.
>>32546532When are you gonna write ShaxxSword? You know Sword is the only true Husbando for Shax!
Guess you'll be doing both then, you tie giving people!How many lizards do you want to summon?

>>32546645Hmm...I say four groups of three each. That way, if two get shot, one can still run back and report!
>>32546645One at first, then another halfway there....I'm not entirely confident about this.
>>32546659You didn't break the tie, though.I guess 2 lizards should be enough.
>>32546668>>32546671>>32546673wait, does this use up pearls?
>>32546680Yes, the question is how many. That's why I said to use trees and not lizards up there, but if we're stuck getting lizards we might as well get more than one. I WOULD prefer no lizards yet, though.
>>32546680Yep. So you cant' do the summon twelve thing, obviously. I got one and two as suggestions so far.
>>32546532Combine operation lizardtree! Have the lizards stalk the around your group to prevent ambushes while the trees lead you!
>>32546695>onetechnically two, just not at the same time. Make them think there's only one running around, or that we can only summon one at a time.
Goddamnit, It's like half-past midnight.What do you have against my sleep schedule Chief.
>>32546695Oh, I thought we were talking kobolds.Nah, go with the treeplomancy
>>32546715My whole quest was created to make people lose sleep. It is the only enjoyment I get in life.That and female japanese wrestling.Looks like you're backing away from the Lizards, then? Tree scouts it is!
>>32546757>female japanese wrestling.That sounds pretty cool.
>Quick Write up of Shax Company: http://pastebin.com/mZgVD5yHYou're in a forest of tree worshipping hippie elves, right? "Well, we don't really worship the trees. We just believe in a mutual relationship with nature can benefit all parts of society and lead to a-" Then they shouldn't suspect the trees themselves to be your enemies! You go over to where the tree guys are hanging out at."Hey, we haven't talked much, but you seem to be hanging out with us still. Mind helpin' us out a bit, Mr. Pearback?" You give them your best super nice smile. One slowly turns to regard you, crouching down and leaning forward till it is right up on you. OW OW OW your ears you forgot they speak in shrieks and snaps. You hold up a finger and get Bearbreath over to them to translate. "Hey, could you say that again?"Several horrible noises later, and the gnoll druid turns to you, "Hey says you feel nice.""That's it?""Yep.""Um, thank you. But can you and your friends go out there and tell us if the elves are about to murder us all while we move around?"Bearbreath has a finger on his chin as the rootkin speak. "They say they'd be honored to, but only if you let them bask in your niceness afterwards.""Uh, I guess that's fine." The tree guy gets on his hands and knees and and bows to you. That might take some getting used to.Here's hoping this works!>Of course it is going to work, why are you worried? Let's move as fast as we can to the fort!>These guys are a little off their rocker! Better give them some back up. Scouts, go! Also take it easy.>Let's get some extra credit! If the tree guys find a small encampment, let's smash it up!
I wonder if we should take swig from our Pimp Cup of True Seeing to counter any crafty elven illusions which might be in play?
>>32546862>Attractive Badass boisterous women from a culture what normally values demure and traditional girls.Educate us in the ways of Japanese Womens Wrestling?

>>32546879>Of course it is going to work, why are you worried? Let's move as fast as we can to the fort!Hahaha, the trees can tell she's got the light plane.

>>32546879>These guys are a little off their rocker! Better give them some back up. Scouts, go! Also take it easy.sips moss juice
>>32546879>>These guys are a little off their rocker!They immediately figure that we're a nice and awesome person! That's the opposite of being off their rocker!>Better give them some back up. Scouts, go! Also take it easy.But it can't hurt to use some other scouts too. They can stay close to our main raiding force.
Wouldn't sending people with the tree guys defeat the purpose of using them?
Extra credit??But your grades are fine!You overachievers! Writing.
>>32546960That's why they're not going with the tree guys, they're just ALSO going out scouting a little extra.
>>32546879Hold on a tick, Alice used to live here right? Shouldn't she know her way around?
>>32546979She's a frontier gal who ran away from home when she was less than a kid.Her parents were too busy being wise ethereal beauties to really chase after her.
>>32546987Are these gonna be like the elves from the Overlord games? Because I REALLY hope they are.
You've been moving at a brisk pace for several hours, and you're pretty sure no one has died horribly yet when Bearbreath gets your attention. A tree man is making its way to you. He intercepts it and exchanges dialogue for a while before walking back over to you. "Apparently they've spotted a couple of places you might be interested in checking out. All thoroughly guarded by elves, of course." The gnoll begins to run through their descriptions. "Mind you, this is all from the rootkin, so it is pretty abstract."Apparently, the rootkin spotted five things they thought were really interesting. Bearbreath is pretty sure three of them are just unusual trees with nothing special about them, but the remaining two are:'Big rock water tunnel surrounded by many pointy stalker friends, its sweet toe flow smelled weird and the glow of magics hung in the air' Bearbreath is pretty sure that means some kinda foutnain with magical water. Probably very large, and well guarded. Must be fairly important."Does sweet toe flow mean water?""Yes.""But they said water earlier.""Don't ask me, boss, I'm not a tree."The second was a 'Squiggly stalker farm filled with many shaped brothers. The deep ground is filled with secret rooms, the toes know.' Bearbreath thinks that means it is some sort of town with vaults underneath it of some kind. Might be interesting?You know that your main job is to raid that one fortress, but this doesn't stop you from helping out the war effort along the way! Besides, there is always loot. And you gotta put the Shax Company to some good use! Also, you need to come up with a better name for your army. Everyone is greeting that one with a sorta 'want to say the name sucks, but that'd invite her to talk to me about naming things and I can't be bothered' kind of look.>Raid the mystical fountain!>Raid the town with secrets!>Raid neither!
>>32547138>Raid the mystical fountain!Corrupt that shit and have it as a turtle spawner.
>>32547138>>32547163>turtle fountaindamnit anon, you have me convinced.
>>32547138>>Raid the town with secrets!Our favourite pastime! Raiding and looting! Our two favourite pastimes Raiding and looting and plundering. Three... Our three favourite ok I'll stop.
>>32547138>Raid the town with secrets!Must... resist... the possibility... of turtle fountain...
>>32547138>Raid the mystical fountain!Water is really important!?Town would probably be better for morale though.
>>32547163+1 for turtle fountain.
>>32547138>Raid the mystical fountain!
>>32547163I gotta sy turtle fountains sounds mighty good to me
Turtles are ruining this quest.
FountainiaLet's get a d20 roll for reasons
>>32547138Hmm...a new name...I wanna say 'The Gloombreaker Blades' but A) Not everyone uses a sword, and B) There's not really any Gloombreakers here.Maybe...the 'Manyfold Battalion'? Not very goblin-y though...

Rolled 20>>32547287Why did you have to do that?
>>32547299That would make it seem like all the others were part of the Gloombreaker clan, though...but then, it IS led by the Gloombreaker chief...eh, if anyone complains, Gloombreaker Corps has my vote.
>>32547301If we ever get a flood the area move from seamom they'd probably stick out more.It's too bad Whoop didn't come with us on our journey! He was one of our earliest followers wasn't he?
>>32547299Also, those trolls. They're not really our pets, are they. More like Allonces' pets. That she cuddles and coos over and dresses in funny clothing before a walk in the park.
>>32547340We could also call it the Turtle Troop, or the Laserating Lightbringers (once we figure out those lasers, that is).
>>32547455Noone can know of Shax's fetish for adorable turtles. What if the elves start dressing up as cute turtles?
>>32547469We'd immediately switch sides.Same thing would also happen if a Paladin came in riding a giant turtle. We might try to steal it, though, but if that didn't work we'd switch sides.
You make your way to the fountain, the tree guys leading the way. The sentries and scouts have said things have died down as you got near the place. You're almost there when suddenly a fireball goes off near you. Spells get flung through the air, but Allonces whips out dark chains and drags four dark clad elves from the trees down around you! An ambush already!? You bring your sword about in a wide and savage arc that completely bisects two elves the instant they land. Allonces stabs through the back of another one, and Sitri kicks one over, stepping on their back and pins them to the ground. That, uh, that went well. Quickly, you gather reports through the camp. Apparently most of your 'obvious' leaders got assaulted like this, but you suffered no casualties. You hear from your scouts later that a large amount of elves were seen fleeing the area. Maybe if they had managed to put your army in chaos they woulda crushed the raid right then and there.Pretty daring high risk move! Not what you expected from namby pamby Allonces elves. Sitri's captive apparently ingested some poison before you noticed, though, and died before you could interrogate her.Before too long, you reach the perimeter of the fountain. The elves are on high guard, and there have been some test shots at your guys. Rund has been slapping his armor loudly and shouting taunts at them. Like a big old dummy.It doesn't look heavily fortified, just a large amount of elves in the area. You don't know how many spellcasters, though according to Allonces every elf has some degree of magical training. What's the plan, boss?>Let's just smash the place. Superior numbers! A tide of darkness will wash over them! Well, maybe a tide of glowing?>Out magic them! You'll summon turtles and rampage over this place.>Let's do it nice and steady. Infantry advance, ranged units provide covering fire, etc.>You'll head in with your primary crew to wreck the place up and minimize casualties.
>>32547455What about the Shax Squad!?Although technically that should refer to our personal unit since a squad is usually around 8 people!Headcount of our raid is 168 [158 if you discount the independent dark elves] Which is a company halfway towards a battalion! Which is 300 units!
>>32547508>our alignment becomes Chaotic Turtle
>>32547508But first we'd show him ours since he showed us his. It'd only be fair.
>>32547549>Every elf has some degree of magical training>We have to kill the mages firstObviously the solution here is to attack with everyone at once and try to kill as many elves at the same time as possible.Take everyone and fuk em up
>>32547553I think it's been chaotic neutral all along.
>>32547549>>Let's just smash the place. Superior numbers! A tide of darkness will wash over them! Well, maybe a tide of glowing?see who survives
>>32547549>>Let's just smash the place. Superior numbers! A tide of darkness will wash over them! Well, maybe a tide of glowing?>>Out magic them! You'll summon turtles and rampage over this place.A tide of turtles and superior numbers.
>>32547549>You'll head in with your primary crew to wreck the place up and minimize casualties.We need captives!
>>32547549A combo of >You'll head in with your primary crew to wreck the place up and minimize casualties.And>Let's just smash the place. Superior numbers! A tide of darkness will wash over them! Well, maybe a tide of glowing?Basically, spearhead the place with the Elite Shock Troops, and everyone else follows.Maybe leave Rund, Whoop, and the tree Squads around the entrance to hold the line case we get anyone who wants to join in on the party?
>>32547549Let's do it nice and steady. Infantry advance, ranged units provide covering fire, etc.And get AoE'd to death . So , no.>Out magic them! You'll summon turtles and rampage over this place.No.>You'll head in with your primary crew to wreck the place up and minimize casualties.Send our elite crew and Gneb's group. Spiders should be good in a forest.
>>32547628I like that. Sounds good.Lets see if we can't initiate with that sword throw+Teleport thing that was totally awesome.
HOLD UP STRATERGIZING
Maybe this is one of the thrones?
>>32547549>>Out magic them! You'll summon turtles and rampage over this place.Guys this place seems important, and since the turtles hang around after we don't need to protect it later.Assuming any of it remains anyway.But turtles, turtles are goodI really like turtles ok
>>32547549>>32547549Rund, I want you and your big armor to work with Mnar's boys, charge down the front. Allonces, work with Whoop's boys, start doing something magic-y. Not an attack, just something to cause some chaos when Treeguys, Bearbreath, Cavalry attack from above and all sides while they are focused on Mnar and Rund. When the flanks are hit, Mnar, Rund, fall back and to the sides. Clear the way for Xab, Turz, Nost, Elves, and Rage Muck, who shall hang back in case Mnar and Rund need a hasty retreat, making up the reserve. Once Cavalry, Trees, and Bearbreath attack their flanks, I'll lead the fishmen cavalry and the reserves in a frontal charge to take advantage in the chaos, with the chaos hauling ass behind Mnar, Rund, keep to cover. You need to stay as alive as possible for five minutes. Scouts, fan out. Make sure there's noone coming up our asses.
>>32547695Let's not waste our pearls
>>32547705SecondMaybe it'll earn us a boss point?
>>32547709it's not a waste, Turtles!I mean- it's not a waste this place seems important and we get free guards.
>>32547705Someone thought things out. I can go with it and give ya a boss point!Now let's roll a d20 to see how well it works out! Just kidding let's not. I'll just write.
>>32547549sure, change >>32547600 to >>32547705I'm not averse to summoning a turtle or two though.
>>32547705Doesn't account for the other members of our squad? Sitri and Bro are pretty strong?Although I guess fetid would be leading scouts.Other than that I like it! Wary of casualties though.
Rolled 20>>32547747Using them on a small objective like this is.Also I don't think they have the range you're thinking. Probably only like 20-30ft radius from where they're summoned.>>32547770
>>32547770Also, attach the suiciders to the scouts. If the scouts see a large flanking force, a suicider will go say hi to them.
>>32547782hah. We didn't even NEED that 20
>>32547776Don't we get THREE turtles from just ONE pearl?I wonder how our turtles back on that horrible continent are doing...
>>32547782> wasted 20 when he clearly asked not to roll
>>32547782>>32547770I thought it was a legit roll too.
>>32547797obviously they're living it up dammit now I want to go visit them so they don't get lonley why did you remind me anon
>>32547781Our named member who I forgot will join us in the main charge.Also, >>32547791 This is also a good plan.
>>32547782anon pls if you keep rocking your crits like that I'm gonna break and turn weird
>>32547825Shhhhh, you can handle a few more
>>32547813Because I'd like to visit them, too.
Everyone is looking at you to be the boss. This is the first big military action you've had since you got this company. Better not mess it up! You put on a hat and slap a table, because it feels right. You've got all the officers here with you. "Alright, lissen up boys. We got some tanky guys so they're gonna charge right in. Allonces you and Whoop start cursin' the place right up, and druid and his tree friends are gonna attack from all sides with spiders usin' the trees to their advantage, right?"Everyone sits up and starts jotting notes. They weren't expecting something this detailed. You drop a fist on the table to punctuate the next comment. "When those connect, you tankers get back and the rest of the boys will get in where they fit in, go it? Then while everyone is all jumbled up me and the fishguys will smash our way right through the middle. Got it? The rest of you lot, keep anyone from our backs."Everyone is sorta focused on their own jobs. When the time comes, things go like clockwork, just like you drew it up. You only lost two goblins, too, though there were several injuries. It was ridiculously one sided. Embarrassingly onesided, really.You decide to check out this fountain place. "Hey, Allonces, you know what this place is?""Nope. It is definitely fairly old, though. Looks like the forest grew up around it.""Wonder what it is. Anyone got a guess?"Whoop dips a finger in the water, and brings it up to his lips. "This one can confirm the water is magical in nature. It appears to have a restorative nature. The extent is not that powerful. Perhaps it is a ritual component?"A ritual component? For what? "So that's it? Just a naturally occuring spring?" There has gotta be something behind this or something you can do with it. There is somethin' here, you just FEEL it.>How do you want to investigate this?
I think we might be getting that BtB level up today guys. What should we go for? Also in other news we qualify for RISING METEOR'S FINAL JUDGEMENT PENANCE SLASH in the sword tree
>>32547825What would a yandere Shax look like?
>>32547825Shax gon' give it to ya, Chief
>>32548019Stick a pearl into the water.What could go wrong?
>>32548019Have a glass
>>32548029Whatever gets us closer to You Would Have A Dark Queen
>>32548019Fire lasers into the fountain. If this starts to work, stick a Glarestone in.Sit on the fountain and talk to Sea Mom.Dunk the treemen into the water.Drink from the chalice.
>>32548019step in it, call on sea momIt's not saltwater but she should have a good idea. if that fails meditating on your plane and asking the custodians should be...enlightening
>>32548102>Sit on the fountain and talk to Sea Mom.I second this suggestion. Mom usually knows what to do, and she's _sea_ Mom, so she should know about water.
>>32548019Hmm...let's bring Fetid, Allonces, Whoop, and Bearbreath. Put Milda in charge of fortifying this place, and have Gneb pick out two runners to send a message to the main body. We need to inform them of this place, yeah?
Alright. Writing. Fixing lunch, so fair warning that updates will be slower for a little.
Good evening. Whatever happened to that Fortress we were going to take?
>>32548274It's a fortress, not a moving castle. It's not going anywhere.
>>32548091I kinda wanna see what she bitch wolf queen is though.The requirement for it seems pretty good too! Morale is great!
>>32548288Maybe it doesElven magic stronk!
>>32548029>If you feed themIt's more immediately useful if we can take advantage or at least pacify the forest animals.
The elves are off your back for a little so you got time to experiment. You really wanna know what the deal with this fountain is. It's water so... your first impulse is to talk to sea mom. You climb into the water and sit down crosslegged and start to focus on convening with your patron god."Oh hey Shax what's going on with you?""Hi, Mom," You say, keeping your eyes shut, even though you feel tendrils patting you on the head. "I found this weird fountain and am wondering what the heck is the deal with it. Figured I'd ask you since you're all watery and junk."There is a weird burbling, "I don't know everything about water, you know? Anyway, let me take a look." There is a shuddering feeling as you feel a great presence move, and your eyes snap open. You're in the fountain, though there is a dark aura all around you. Black, thick tendrils of smoky energy reach out and scoop up water and splash it around. It kinda looks like its playing for a moment, though your army is mostly staring, mouths agape.You hear the familiar voice of the Sea Mom in your head. "I see. This is enchanted water, for sure. It appears to be coming directly from a source of divine energy, not unlike the thrones you're used to. It's function is a bit different, though. You'll find that it has more to do with the divine than the elemental. I am pretty sure an Elven God is associated with it. That's all I can say, I'm afraid. As for where this piece of divinity is, it lies far underground."What the heck does that mean? The sea mom's presence disappears, and you look about. Excavating this could take some time. But you're curious what a piece of divinity means.>Let's smash up the place and start digging it ou! This will definitely absolutely make the elves super mad.>It sounds cool, but I don't think we can play defensive while in the middle of enemy territory. Let's keep moving to the fortress for now.
>>32548133True. Maybe she will want Whoop to cast Unhallow or something on it.
>>32548019Regardless of what it does, we should throw up a cave here - having an instant connection to a giant healing fountain is probably great
>>32548435>Smash up the place and start digging it out! Also, send a message to the main force of what's happening here, including the 'Elven God' thingy.
>>32548435>>32548438Put up a cave and steal all the water.
>>32548435Summon the turtles! let them dig with their giant sword shovelsBut for real we should get some good guards for this, the elves are going to want this place back for sure to keep up their people. Likely make potions and stuff out of this.
>>32548435Summon a portal to our ethereal plane and send a messenger to the Drow lady.It's something of note, and she can totally send more dudes to investigate it if they can bare to go through the Goblin Caves.
>>32548435>Let's smash up the place and start digging it ou! This will definitely absolutely make the elves super mad.First lets set up some fortifications and a entrance to our plane so we can beat a quick retreat if needed. Maybe turtle it up as well.
>>32548438But can we reasonably defend it while were gone?If not, do we bleed dark Elf troops from our personal base?And if we do, should we really be tipping our hand like that to our allies?Anyways>>32548435Let's move out! Tentative support for the pearl thing if we can justify it.
>>32548435>Let's smash up the place and start digging it ou! This will definitely absolutely make the elves super mad.Hey, maybe we'll score some divine superpowers to go with our existing magic. Who knows?Point is; fuck the elves, we're taking their shit.
>>32548435>Let's smash up the place and start digging it ou! This will definitely absolutely make the elves super mad.
>>32548435>It sounds cool, but I don't think we can play defensive while in the middle of enemy territory. Let's keep moving to the fortress for now.The fountain isn't going anywhere, we can come back to do what we want with it after we're done.
>>32548435>It sounds cool, but I don't think we can play defensive while in the middle of enemy territory. Let's keep moving to the fortress for now.Its a fountain, its not going anywhere.Take out the fortress then come back for it.
Hey can we look up Allonces' parents on the Scroll O' Swordsmen? If they are on the scroll will tell us if they get near. Make it hard for them to ambush us.
>>32548435>Let's smash up the place and start digging it ou! This will definitely absolutely make the elves super mad.Maybe finding the elven god will help with the war with the elves.
>>32548512Yes fuck the elves. Manually.
>>32548556What makes you believe they are swordsmen?
>>32548587What make you think they're not?It doesn't hurt to check
I hope we pick up First we gonna ROCK soonIt would be cool to start picking up combo chain skills
Is Shax about to become an elven god?That's hilarious.
>>32548683That would seem like a quick way to neutralize the Elven resistance... assuming we don't take on some antagonistic god's mantle.
>>32548683Implying this isn't the upgrade route for Allonces
>>32548683Does that mean we're going to take on the form on an elf in the process?Because that sounds hilarious.
>>32548683I don't think so. Maybe she'll befriend an elven god. Maybe she'll kill one. A lot could happen but I don't think she'll become an elven goddess.
>>32548683>implying this isn't a trap
>>32548435We don't have the time nor the goblinpower for this. Smash up things, and keep moving to the fortress.
>>32548720Ohhh, I like this!
>>32548435How close are we to that town with caverns under it?
>>32548729She'll have the Body of an Elf with the intelligence of a Goblin.
>>32548783Divine Tea Parties at will!
>>32548729We'll get knife ears and maybe a liking of forest turtles.
>>32548867Turtles like mangroves I thinkThose are kind of like water forests
>>32548867Shax is an equal opportunity turtle lover, I'm sure
>>32548867According to all the art of Shax we already have knife ears though!
>>32548900>>32548899So nothing really changes, then.
>>32548830Maybe she will get a nifty transformation sequence for when she goes all godly: Divine Dark Magical Girl Allonces!
>>32548900Goblins are pretty often depicted as having big, pointy ears, actually. They also have similarily huge earlobes, though.
>>32548925>dark magical girl AlloncesYes! Oh God, yes!
You don't want to stick around getting murdered by elves all day, but you also REALLY want to know what is going on down there. Sea mom couldn't be a little more specific? Anyway. You order people to start digging up this fountain. The first day is pretty slow, and the elves don't really notice what is happening. Your blasphemy doesn't fly on the second day, and you get hit. HARD.Your base fortifications put up help a little, but it doesn't take long for you to start to feel like you're being picked on. You get Dorle and Mani to start blast mining to get deeper faster, though they grumble about wasting perfectly good explosives. By the third day you've lost three goblins, and the assaults are getting fiercer, but you get to the bottom of the cavern.At the bottom of it is giant glimmering crystal. It sits on a pedestal in the middle of a shaped cavern. Pillars decorate the chamber, showing some kind of story that you're sure someone can understand. The crystal pulses as you approach it. "Hello, little goblin. What brings you here? Curiosity?" It shimmers and flares, and a tall elven man appears, clad in some slinky black robe thing."Oh, hi. I'm Shax! Who are you?"He gives a half bow, "Greetings, Shax. I'm Ifilindeior, known far and wide for health and healing." Wow that is the lamest name you've ever heard."Okay, Mr. Ifil, I'm just gonna take that crystal, okay? Mind tellin' me what it does?" It's shiny, so that is good enough reason.He chuckles, "I don't know if I can allow that. It helps house my divinity, you see. Without it I'll be quite diminished.""Not seein' the problem here."He shrugs, "Tell you what. I can give you and your whole army a blessing if you don't take it. I don't agree with many of the decisions my cousins in this land have made, and a good few years of darkness might teach them some lessons they'd do well to learn."
You cross your arms, "What kinda blessings, and why wouldn't I just take the crystal and give the blessings myself anyways?"He rubs his chin with a finger, "Well, first of all: You're not an elf. Even if you were, you don't have the worship of any elves. If, somehow, you had a devoted cult of elves and were already an elf, you don't have the acceptance of the rest of the pantheon. In addition, I doubt you're ready for the consequences of true divinity." He then crosses his arm and shakes his head. "As for my blessing, it'd let you pass through the forest unhindered. That simple. Enjoy good health all the way to your objective, minion of chaos."Wow, a minion?>Kill him.>Give crystal to Allonces.>Take the blessing.>Call him names and then take the crystal for yourself.>Call him names and then just leave.>You're the boss! You tell him to give you more blessings before agreeing to it.
>>32548982>Give crystal to Allonces.It's too tempting.
>>32548973Throw in a magical girl transformation for Allonces and you got a deal.Not super powerful. Just less useless and cuter.
>>32548982>Take the blessing.But get Allonces to talk to him, see what they have to say to each other.
>>32548982>Give crystal to Allonces.Yessssssss.
>>32548982>Take the blessing.
>>32548982>Give crystal to Allonces.Ask her if she wants it first.
>>32548982>give to Allonces
>>32548982>>32549000>>32549005These.I don't want to straight jack the crystal, because his blessing sounds really useful.
>>32548982>Call him names and then Give crystal to Allonces.Obviously the best choice.
>>32548982>Give the Crystal to Allonces"Here. Have fun."
>>32548982>Give crystal to Allonces.
>>32548982>>Give crystal to Allonces.Oh boy, Oh boy!
People obviously want to upgrade Allonces, but maybe we could 'convince' him to upgrade her in addition to the blessing.
>>32548982>Call him names and then take the crystal for yourself.Let's just see what it does for us first. And if we really can't make it work, we'll just give it to Allonces.We're the boss. We get first dibs on all the cool loot!
>>32548982guys plsI- I don't want to mess with this guylets just >Take the blessing
>>32548982>Take the blessing.And then we tell all the elves we've been blessed by their god, and they'll get super mad but won't be able to do anything about it because we've been blessed by their god.It'll be awesome!
>>32548982>>You're the boss! You tell him to give you more blessings before agreeing to it.We don't need the ire of an elven god right now. Let's just get the power here.
>>32548982>You're the boss! You tell him to give you more blessings before agreeing to it.I don't like how uppity this God is getting.
>>32549074Mahou Shoujo Allonces can surely protect us from whatever elf nonsense they have cooked up for us
Why would you want to give the crystal to Allonces ever...>>32548982>You tell him to give you more blessings before agreeing to it.Let's us get to out objective without getting slaughtered and whatever else sweet deal we get is plus.
>>32549092This.Make a contract and become a Magical Bitch!
Dem votes.Time to take acount and start writing!
>>32548982>Give crystal to Allonces.Don't tell her what it is though.
>>32548982>Give crystal to Allonces.>"Yeah, that's neat and whatever. Here Allonces, take this crystal. Maybe you two can be useless together?"
>>32548982>>Take the blessing.Getting to that supid fort just got a LOT easier.
>>32549131Pls no bully the Allonces.
>>32549150Allonces is perfectly suited for bullying though. It's almost uncanny. Some might say supernatural.
>>32549266She's the avatar for elven incompetence.
>>32549266>>32549297She lost ONE fight against that Imp because of our shitty rolls. Get the fuck over it. She's shaped up a lot since then, especially when she started learning magic.
>>32549150we bully becase we care...probably.
>>32549323Alfonse, pls go and stay go
>>32549323but we've always bullied Allonces, even before that fight.Nothing has changed, nothing ever will.Even if she becomes some kind of divine being
>>32549323Are you mad?
>>32549266>Allonces, Elvish goddess of being bulliedI like it! She doesn't have to get the acceptance of the rest of the pantheon, because them being mean to her only makes her stronger. And the socially isolated bullied kids are really easy to recruit into cults. It's basically the perfect path to ultimate power.
>>32549323Allonces pls goIt's a running gag you fucking pleb. This quest pretty much lives and breathes that stuff.
>>32549352Why isn't this a gif/webm that rocks up and down?
>>32549323>Implying we will ever stop bullying AlloncesIt's the natural order, anon. You don't mess with the natural order.Shax is just tsundere
>>32549352>>32549354It's a gag that's outlived itself and now shambles around like a zombie, dragging muck and body parts all over the lush green moss on which baby turtles play.
>>32549353Yes! By not accepting her, they've accepted her by definition!She's like Malal!
>>32549397So is the main characterWhat is your point, here? That you hate fun? Just embrace it and relax, anon
"I know an elf. She's got lots of friends who are also elves. And she's my buddy. I can just give the crystal to her. Her mom and dad are apparently super powerful, too. So, as far as I can tell, she meets all the things you just said." He's got a good poker face, you'll give him that. But he definitely shut up, "So. You're givin' me a pretty nice blessing there. But I'm sayin' it isn't good enough. What else you got for me? Or I take your little god ball and just hand it over to my friend."He opens his mouth and shuts it. Bites his thumb and looks side ways. Raises a finger, opens his mouth. The finger curls as he gets crestfallen a bit. You take that thought back about his poker face.You put your hands on your hips and tap your feet. "You gonna keep stalling or?"The deity waves his hands, "No, no! I was just trying to come up with something. I've never been good at thinking on my feet..." His ghostly diety feet.You throw your hands up in the air, "I don't gotta wait on this!" And start walkign towards the orb."Wait, wait! I can make your friend my champion, too! She'd get all kinds of powers. Since she's an elf I can really load her up on the good stuff!""I'm listening...""And devotees of my order wouldn't be able to attack her. Which is a lot of people, you know?""Elven people.""Right! And I haven't had a champion in a long, long time. The only people she'd be sharing powers with are my high priest and the various civilian healers throughout the elven cities."You shrug. "Sounds good. So, I'll be taking that blessing now, if you don't mind." The god looks relieved, and you definitely notice some sort of enchantment settling on you. It's time to book it.>You've got free reign of the forest. Explore?>Talk to Allonces and get her to test out her powers!>Let's just do our job and get out.
>>32549422>Allonces = MalalOH GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING I DON'T EVEN...
>>32549448>Test Allonces powersWe scammed that Elf god good! What a dork!
>>32549448>Talk to Allonces and get her to test out her powers!
>>32549448>Talk to Allonces and get her to test out her powers!Aw man, we lost out on God Allonces. Let's see what we got instead.Even though we could've just given the orb to Allonces and then have her do all the things the God just did.In hindsight, this was not our best idea. I think.
>>32549448CHAMPION BUDDIES!! Let's summon up Sea Mom and have them introduce themselves. They're champions are buddies, it'd be awsm if they were buddies too!
>>32549448>Talk to Allonces and get her to test out her powers!Sweet.
>>32549493We can still have god Allonces.All she has to do is sit on some thrones.
>>32549448>>Talk to Allonces and get her to test out her powers!has to be doneget some sweet sexy healing
>>32549445I like fun. I just stopped seeing the fun in "lol Allonces is so useless lololol" around the time we blew up that clock tower. Since then it has gone from "not fun" to "tedious".
>>32549493We can't let her show us up, it's ok!Besides we made an elf god sweat up and lose his marbles instead of being enraged, that's a win in my book.
>>32549448We get moving. Allonces can test her powers on the way to the fortress.
>>32549529man, if you're getting bothered by something as insignificant as this, I'm surprised you're on 4chan
>>32549448>>Talk to Allonces and get her to test out her powers!>Let's just do our job !>But don't get out. We got a lot in this forest we want to explore.
>>32549448Welp. Let's talk to her I guess.
>>32549448Hey, we got our blessing, nothing is stopping us from just tossing the orb to Allonces anyway.
>>32549595Shax usually holds up the end of her deal anyway. Also, if we steal the gods power the blessing will probably go away.
>>32549557Desu-spam was also considered fun once upon a time. There are a lot of things I like about this quest in particular and 4chan in general. The hating on Allonces for pretty much no reason is just not one of them.
>>32549448>Talk to Allonces and get her to test out her powers!> do our job! But not get out
>>32546532Oh shit nigga whats this!? I forgot you were doing this during the day now.
>>32549619But since Allonces becomes the god, maintaining the blessing would fall on her, and we're friends, so of course she'd keep it going. Right?
>>32549448>>Talk to Allonces and get her to test out her powers!>Raid the town with secrets!They'll never expect us to have ADD when it comes to doing our job!
Alright! Writing! Probably last update of the day.
>>32549621I don't think anyone seriously dislikes allonces. Well except that one guy who admitted to not liking her and asking if we could kill her every sessionBut he's been quiet for a while now.Allonces is ok, kind of strange in the head from different upbringing and cultural influences but okjust chill and don't let the jokes rustle your jimmies.
>>32549641Assuming she instantly understood how to use all her god powers.
>>32549643Thanks! It's been a fun day! Step one for Allonces on the road to becoming the God of Rejects!
>>32549529The joke isn't that Allonces isn't useless persay, it's that she's easily bullied and has stuck-up upper class sensibilities while being part of a mostly Goblin raiding party
>>32549676>>32549621Yeah, Allonces is actually one of my favorite parts of the quest. But she does just kinda make you want to bully her.Sexually.
>>32549643I'm guessing exp and picks next Time then?Thanks for running in advance!
>>32549676I don't like her much but she seems to be doing a good job lately.
Hey Chief! What's the difference between normal elves and dark elves?What do dark elves think of elven gods and vice versa?Would dark elves be on board with allonce's championship and maybe ascension?
>>32549754Yeah getting the Witch-Boy to teach her dark magic was one of the better decisions we have made.
>>32549757>What's the difference between normal elves and dark elves?Dark elves are dark.
>>32549774Yeah. Objectively, she's not useless anymore and has been a total bro while we raided her homeland.
>>32549729Pretty sure that's her dark elf boyfriend's job.
>>32549813Yeah, one anon said she might be a clinical psychopath. He might not be wrong, considering how few fucks she gives about us running roughshod over her people.
>>32549819I envy him.
>>32549834She was probably bullied pretty bad by her kind. So she just sits back and laughs as they get destroyed by a somewhat mentally deficient goblin leading a small army of scrub-races.
>>32549834All of our minions give zero fucks.Just look how they reacted to us becoming a demigod and becoming goblin chief. Just shrugged and rolled with it.
>>32549868We're just so ridiculous that they expect this kinda stuff from us!Kinda like a non-sexual Rance.
>>32549834Or a Hero of Justice!>No," She turns and looks at you. Her face is pretty badly burnt, "Don't you know the first rule about being a hero?" She readies herself for another charge, raising her spear in an aggressive stance, "Victory goes..." She starts dashing forward, "To those with courage!">Maybe you oughta tell her she isn't a hero, but a raider of innocent villages? Well, no reason to bring her down!Everytime
>>32549863That would explain why she left at such a young age. Plus we are pretty nice to her in the end. However:> a somewhat mentally deficient goblincompared to other gobo's we are like fucking Scipio Africanus.
>>32549863>somewhat mentally deficientDid you not just see the way we beasted all over those elves when we took the well? Also just because she is an elf it doesn't mean she has to like other elves.
>>32549894>Allonces is a hero of justiceI agree with this. The world has grown proud and corrupt. Allonces is here to destroy the arrogance of all who are guilty of it.
>>32549863>>32549897>>32549907I think Shax is more "gifted but woefully uneducated", really.
>>32549897>>32549948She kind of reminds me of a child prodigy. Talented, but not nearly wise or responsible enough for what she's capable of.
>>32549863>>32549897If her family is so great maybe she had a hard time living up to their standards in her community/family when she feels she's not so great in comparisonWhich leads to ostracization and having to live up to everyone's expectations!It really wears on a person! I can relate
>>32549948Bah education is overrated. I don't see how finding out the angles of a triangle would help in a situation like this.
>>32549981It'd help her figure out how to throw a sword better.
You get back to camp, and the boys are all looking over to you. The attacks seem to have stopped. You wave Allonces over. "Hey, do you feel any different?"She looks at hands and back at you curiously, "No, not really. Why?""I may have cut a deal with ifilldealio to give you super powers in exchange for me not making you a god.""Who? Also, what powers exactly?""You know how I'm the Sea Mom's sword?""I didn't know that""Well I am. And now you're sorta like that except different? I think Champions get more of a direct boost or something. Some cleric explained it to me a while back but WHO CARES what are your powers?"Allonces makes a face. "I think 'ifilldealio' is... Ifilindeior? So I probably have some sorta healing or health powers of some kind. Does this stuff come with an instruction manual? You're used to all this god crap aren't you?"You shake your head, "Nope, figured it all out myself."With a sigh, Allonces shrugs, "Guess I'll have to find out the hard way."There is a lot of shouting and posing to be had all around, but Allonces eventually figures out several things out after communing with iffledillendao. Anything she eats is automatically nutritional for her, so she immediately began pigging out. Second, she'll have much greater natural reflexes and strength. Third, she can do targeted heals from a great distance, as well as passive wide area heals. That's all pretty neat!It'll probably get better over time, as well. Like your stuff. She's still not as cool as you, though.======================That's it for today! Gonna try to run Thursday morning or Saturday night in addition to Sunday!Thank you for reading, playing, hanging out, being buddies, having a good time, and putting up with my slowness. You guys are great! This quest wouldn't have gotten this far without you people and I'm glad you're all here. See you next thread!
>>32549940Won't you believe in Allonces?I can't help but think of her being like Ribbon.>>32549948I like to think of her as being a child at heart.
>>32549981man, say what you want, but Pythagorean theorem has helped me all through life, with things no sane person would normally relate to mathematics. a^2=b^2+c^2 is the most useful thing you'll encounter I'm an engineer
>>32550005I love you too, chief.Thanks for running.
>>32550005have a good day chiefy. thread was fun
>>32550005Thanks for running, Chief!
>>32550005Haha thanks for the run.Kinda sad about no Magical Girl Allonces yet, buy its all good.
>>32549981Math is pretty good for calculating projectiles, even if they're invisible!
>>32550005>There is a lot of shouting and posing to be had all around, but Allonces eventually figures out several things out after communing with iffledillendao.

Third, she can do targeted heals from a great distance, as well as passive wide area heals. That's all pretty neat!That's all cool and all, but the important question is: Does all that stuff involve a magical girl transformation sequence?
>>32550123Don't we have a very talented and all-around awesome person who makes pictures relating to this quest from time to time?Surely a depiction of a transformation sequence is not out of the question.
>>32550065It's alright, we can still work towards that. Slowly but surely she'll become the magical girl she never knew she wanted to be.
>>32550123>>32550154>>32550155Mah niggas.I bet she do it for the cute outfit on demand if nothing else.
>>32550154And then we need to get magical girl Shax and magical girl Sitri.And maybe Fetidclaw, seeing as he's a she now too.The question is, how would the color-coding go?
>>32550190Black Allon, because dark magical girlPinkish Shax because SHAXGreen Fetid because Orc>inb4 das racist
>>32550190Shax is Green as Green is best.Sitri is red because red is the colour associated most with passion, and she's drowning in poon.Allonces is pink.Fetidclaw is yellow.
>>32550190Allonces - Green w/ earth tone secondaries.Shax - White/Cream with blue-green secondariesSiti -?Fetid - Something stupidly revealing.
>>32550154If what you want is a fully animated transformation sequence, I'm probably going to have to pass. With animation, you either have to set the quality of individual frames waaaaay low, or spend hours redrawing slight variations of the same image.
>>32550236I agree with this. Shax looks best in white with green bits.
>>32550245Nah, just a couple of pics would be awesome if we ever get our Mahou Shoujo on.>>32550255We did look pretty great in that dapper white suit.
>>32550245Not that guy, but I was thinking more like a comic strip/storyboard setup at most, showing a few stages of the transformation.Even just a portrait of the female characters in frilly magical girl outfits would be great, though.
>>32550229>>32550236Actually, I do kinda like the idea of Alloces in pink and black. Sorta Dark PreCure looking.
>>32550296Yeah, I'd be happy with just portraits.Transformation is asking too much.
>>32550190CYMKSo Cyan, Pink, Yellow, Black
>>32550005Thanks for running Chief. Next thread should be fun.What is Alloonces' relationship with her broher like?
>>32550005so exp next time? still voting for If You Feed Them
>>32550263>>32550296>>32550320Fine. I'll deliver at some point.
>>32550336But who gets what?I like Shax in white, but cyan would work as an accent. Allonces should be black, since "Dark Magical Girl", but I dont know about the other 2.
>>32550220>>32550229>>32550236I'm liking the idea of Shax as white with blue secondary, Allonces black with pink, Sitri as just red, and Fetidclaw as green with yellow.
>>32550442>Allonces & ShaxSasuga.
>>32550482This looks pretty entertaining. Where's it from?
>>32550572Boku no Pico
>>32550572Boku no PrecureWhile we're at itCould we get Shax as Guts?
>>32550572Futari wa Pretty Cure.Pretty great action scenes for a magical girl show.
>>32550594>>32550648I've watched Boku no Pico, and the two sequels. I liked them enough to use them for masturbation material.>>32550626Thanks. I'd heard of it, but filed it under "maybe I'll get around to it some time", I think it's time to move it into the category of "I've got a load of time and need something to watch".
>>32550648Oh I forgot to ask, where's your reaction image from? It looks interesting.
>>32551062Dis nigga...Senki Zesshou Symphogear.
>>32550626Dat takedown... unf.Is it wrong to want to be wrestled to the ground by a pretty girl in a frilly dress?
>>32551192If it's wrong, I don't want to be right.
>>32551192In the grand scheme of things that is a pretty low level fetish/desire.
