Only a few types of demons are smart or learned enough to know of their own origins, but as they're also smart enough to find and exploit loopholes in their summoning contracts, efforts to interview them have proven singularly unsuccessful (i.e. end in fire, death, and an infestation of demons. On the plus side, many enterprising heroes and saviors of the world have launched their careers from the aftermath of these attempts)."As such, we can only attempt to piece together working theories from what little we know."Certainly, there's the bog-standard 'evil deity' theory, but that falls flat; deities are much easier to 'interview,' and every known god or goddess has vehemently denied having a hand in the creation of demons (and haven't given us much more information than that). There's no saying whether they're telling the truth, but it's entirely possible; demons are thought to be from another dimension and/or universe entirely. Different gods for different folk, as they say."Of course, there aren't many other working theories, as what little we know about demons is primarily focused on killing them as quickly and efficiently as possible. Some say that demons were all spawned from a single monstrous progenitor, who waits to be released from his or her prison; others theorize that demons were once former inhabitants of our world, and were cut out of it for some unknown crime. Others yet say that demons were those unfortunate or unskilled enough to become a part of our world's divine pantheons, and sacrificed their immortality for horrific powers... and so on, and so forth."(Cont.)

>>33500640The scaratones and dwarves thought he was stuck in a coma, having overdrawn his resources to suplex a literally metaphorical literary device that turned reality on its head. The ogres thought he was simply sleeping it off. The elves simply didn't know what to think anymore, so they tried not to. As it turns out, almost everyone in Ogir Place was wrong about the status of their leader.Boss Bawss Fistboss is dreaming.Stuck in that strange realm between consciousness and unconsciousness, the larger ogre watches as time flies by with every sign of interest, and absolutely no worry for his corporeal body as it lies down there in the mortal realm.He nods in approval as the ogres repair Ogir Place, putting it back together even better than it was before.He sees Gubbins pop off into his little temporal jaunt, and manages to catch the geomancer coming back with an entire group of kobolds in tow.He scratches his cheek in puzzlement as Celicia flies off the handle after one reality-twisting event too many, and just in time to save Queen Kilkkarak from the remnants of the Formichroma.He squints as the light shining from the newly-empowered patchwings and skeletons nearly blinds him, and wonders what fried god-phoenix would taste like.(cont.)
>>33500662Finally, after a second or a hundred years, Boss Bawss Fistboss stands up, the strange dreamy firmament sagging under his weight, and brushes some of the weird little spangly star bits off of his knees. "A'right, I'm gonna hafta start gettin' back to da boys now. I'm goin' back ta Ogir Place."The strange in-between world whispers back to him.>No.Boss Bawss Fistboss blinks, frowning a little bit. "Why not?">You are a larger threat to the stability of our reality than the kobolds or the demons will ever be. We cannot let you leave.... well, THAT'S not on his list of things to do.[A] [PERSUADE] Nah, I'm totally not a threat. Can you please lemme go home?[B] [QUESTION] What're we gonna do in da in-between worlds?[C] [RIP & TEAR] That's okay, I can get outta here on my own.[D] [WRITE-IN]
>>33500694>[B] [QUESTION] What're we gonna do in da in-between worlds?We got something to pomf on?
>>33500694>[A] DIPLOMACY. It's never not an option. In fact, it's the only option. Why did you list other options? Heresy!
>>33500694>[B] [QUESTION] What're we gonna do in da in-between worlds?>[A] [PERSUADE] Nah, I'm totally not a threat. Can you please lemme go home?I'm greedy.
Rolled 6>>33500694IZ NO THREAT.Plop a hat on the Voice.SEE? WEZ FRIENDS NOW.

>>33500694[D] [WRITE-IN] "Than what about bringing everything else here? This reality seems a little bouncy, but it's probably harder for us to break, right?"
>>33500999That's so stupid it has to work.
>>33500694>[D] [CONFUSE] What if, like, this thing is actually what's the threat to reality, and Boss is keeping order? Fucked up if true, man.
>>33500999Yeah, why didn't you put everyone in this dimension to begin with smarty pants?
>>33500694>[A] [PERSUADE] Nah, I'm totally not a threat. Can you please lemme go home?
>>33501070I don't know. After I wrote that I saw >>33500798, that plan in that dialect with that roll?! Jeez, that practically as OGRE as Bawss gets. Pluse we get the diplomacy boost...
Rolled 8>>33500694Don't mind me, I'm just warming up my rolls.
Rolled 20HELLO I AM BACK HERE WE GO
>>33500999I'm liking this.
>>33500694>>33500999>[A] [PERSUADIPLOMACY!]And keeping an eye on those write-ins!Boss Bawss Fistboss squints blindly into the weird, sparkly dream-stuff. It's hard to get a bead on distances in this sort of place, let alone figure out who's talking to him. He can't even figure out where the voices are coming from."Nah, look- I ain't no threat, right? How can I be a threat to reality? I'm just an ogre boss," he rumbles.There's a contemplative pause.>... well, he DOES have a point-There's the sound of a hand smacking someone upside the head.>Idiot! What did we JUST say about listening to the ogre!?>But he's just a-A second smack soon follows.>What part of "don't listen to the ogre" is hard to understand? Now shut up before I get the Dreamwardens in here and drag you out by force.>A-Alright, okay, I get it!Boss Bawss Fistboss scratches his head. Trying to talk sense into these folks might be kinda hard. Not that "kinda hard" ever means anything to an ogre...[A] [PERSUADE AGAIN] Target the uncertain-sounding one.[B] [PERSUADE HARDER] Target the angry, certain-sounding one.[C] [CALL OUT] Target anyone else who might be listening.[D] [BLUFF(?)] Ask how hard it'd be to drag everyone ELSE you know into this dream world.[E] [CONFUSE] What if we're the reality... and out THERE is the dream world??[F] [WRITE-IN]
Rolled 75>>33500999HELLO YES I SECOND THIS.
>>33501169>[D] [BLUFF(?)] Ask how hard it'd be to drag everyone ELSE you know into this dream world.>[E] [CONFUSE] What if we're the reality... and out THERE is the dream world??Existential theories always drive me nuts.

>>33501169>[B] [PERSUADE HARDER] Target the angry, certain-sounding one
>>33501169[B] [PERSUADE HARDER] Target the angry, certain-sounding one.[E] [CONFUSE] What if we're the reality... and out THERE is the dream world??Ask them what would happen if we fell asleep in here and started dreaming.
>>33501169>[D'] [SPECULATE] Well, how hard would it be to drag the rest of our world in here? Oh, and the sun and moon and gods and stuff?
Rolled 18>>33501169>[A]>[E]It can't fail!
>>33501169>[F] [WRITE-IN]Hey, listening ain't never hurt no one.
>>33501169Now listen hear ya sparkley-ting. I's an Ogre. An' Ogres make friends. So why don' I bring all my friends here an' you bring all yer friends an' we can discuss 'dis?"
Rolled 39>>33501169[D] [BLUFF(?)] Ask how hard it'd be to drag everyone ELSE you know into this dream world.[E] [CONFUSE] What if we're the reality... and out THERE is the dream world??
>>33501169>[F] [ENGAGE OGRE CAMO!]If we can't see them, then they can't see us! We fake an escape then follow them back to base.
Rolled 92>>33501331That's right down ogre-y.
>>33501331Sure. Go for it.
Well, it looks like CONFUSE is the winning answer right now, so!>***STUPID LUCKY TIME?***ROLL d100! (dice+1d100 in the email field)Best of the first three!
Rolled 11>>33501463>>33501456Wait no that wasn't right.Shit.
Wow anons, what happened to your rolling prowess? This is so aggressively mediocre-leaning-bad.
Rolled 16>>33501463>>33501473>>33501475>Kind of a problemFuuuuck
>>33501463>>33501473>>33501475>10-40: Kind Of A ProblemDammit
This aint BlorpThe dice knowsWe fed a troll
Rolled 34>>33501456Go go go!
Wow, that's the first time in a WHILE we've ever actually had a set of subpar rolls. DID I GET WARPED TO PARALLEL DIMENSION /TG/ INSTEAD, WHAT IS THISWRITING
>>33501556Blorp.We're confusing, right? Doesn't that count as Diplomacy? Since we're talking them into seeing our way?That's plus 30, Blorp.Look at those rolls again.25 + 30 = 55.36 + 30 = 66.Two doubles in the first three.
Rolled 10>>33501556I'M SORRY D:
>>33501556Are we going to be meeting Judge Dredd inevitables?
>>33501592He has a point right Blorp? Right?
>>33501556Blorp... You do recall what happens when we have ogres.# of ogres + roll = outcome
>>33501662The dice work in strange ways.
>>33501662Your suffering is our enjoyment. Did you truly believe that Ogre civilization players could roll sub par?
Rolled 97>>33501791Well, I did :xSo much shame...
>>33501845>Lord of the 96>97Ha!
Rolled 20>>33501872>33501872Every time!
>>33501845Shame on you, always have faith in our dice even when things seem down just find some loophole that makes us win.
>>33501791The question isn't if Bawss will succeed at diplomacy it's how hard does he succeed.
>>33501845Hey, 38+30 is 68, that's successful. And a good starting point for our two doubles.We have to keep an eye on Blorp or he'll forget we know what milk is when we have two sources of it for food.
>>33501938Exactly. Ogre diplomacy is best diplomacy.
>>33500616WHOAHBLORP IS BACK!
>>33501992There are other kinds of diplomacy?
>>33502121None worth mentioning.
>>33501169>>33501456>>33501463>>33501473>>33501475>[X] [CONFUSE]>38, 25, 36: Kind of a problem!>OR IS IT>... +30 diplomacy bonus>55, 66"Wait, wait, wait."The bickering falls to silence as expectant eyes(?) turn toward Boss Bawss Fistboss. The larger ogre pauses, one hand up as he gathers his thoughts. "What if... now, 'kay, hear me out. What if THIS is da real world, an' out THERE is da dream world?"There's a baffled pause.>Don't be silly. This is the real world, and what you have in THERE is the dream world-"Is dat wot you think?" Boss Bawss Fistboss crosses his barrel arms over his chest. "Can ya prove it?"The second person communicating begins to whimper.>Boss, this guy, he's REALLY got a point-- only to be smacked upside the head again.>Cease your whining, and keep your head on straight! Are you a mewling pinkskin, or a proud walker of dreams, like your grandfather and his grandfather before him?? Now... Boss Bawss Fistboss waits patiently as the more experienced "walker of dreams" cracks his knuckles.>Look, ogre, we have nothing to prove. The burden is on YOU to prove that you are, in fact, in the real world! What have your poor, leaderless ogres been doing while you were stuck in the darkness of the dream world?"But I'm not stuck in da dream world.">... what?Boss Bawss Fistboss feels for a wall in the firmament of the dream world and leans against it casually. "I've been sittin' back an' watchin' my boys run around for a while. See, da elves helped out ol' Queenie back under the Scaratone Hive, an' she even became propa ogre-like for a while there. Then, Gubbins played around with time..."The larger ogre continues rambling in this vein for quite a while, seemingly unaware of how the silence from the other end of the conversation grows increasingly brittle and worried.(Cont.)
>>33502416>S-See? What did I tell you, boss?? We've been dragged in! We've ALL been dragged into the dream world! An illusory grue's done us in, boss, just like poor ol' Kragath was->You! Shut up! We will perform the sacred rites and escape this foul illusion! We'll switch places with the ogre, he was disposable anyway."Er, you sure you wanna do dat?" Boss Bawss Fistboss hazards, raising his voice to be heard over the sounds of the clanging of metal tools and some sort of bleating animal being dragged into wherever the voices are.>Of course we do! I'm terribly sorry that it had to come to this, but it has to be done; we are the guardians keeping the world stitched together, and you are the harbinger of reality's unfraying. It's too late to beg for your life, ogre! "... okay."The next few minutes are quite busy- on the other side, at least. The large ogre waits patiently as the chanting reaches a fever pitch, and then he feels something tugging at his very essence, taking him away from this strange, nonsensical plane of existence.>Prepare yourself, my apprentice, and my guards! Our escape to the real world is imminent!The dream world echoes with a "sproink" sound as about six orcs dressed in ceremonial outfits pop into existence next to Boss Bawss Fistboss.As the large ogre is pulled out of the dream world, waving cheerfully at the orcs, they have just enough time to scream in utter mortified rage before he disappears.(Cont.)
>>33502473Boss Bawss Fistboss slowly climbs to his feet, dusting himself off before looking around at a stony room. Glancing outside the window, he sees nothing but dark green trees underneath a super-bright sun. Colorful birds scream at the sky as they wing through the canopy far above his head, equally colorful monkeys scream at each other as they clamber through the trees, and the orcs running around outside scream as they're flee from the growing space-time anomaly opening up at the edge of the town....Huh.[A] [LOOK AROUND] Might as well explore the room he's in, first![B] [GO BACK INTO THE DREAM WORLD] This place ain't nearly as interesting.[C] [CLIMB OUT THE WINDOW] Those folk look like they could use help![D] [GO HOME] Yeah, you don't got time for this, Ogir Place's a-waitin'![E] [SUMMON] Come here!

>>33502520>eWhoops, ended up putting down two [E] choices.WELP, your guys' write-ins are distinct enough that it's usually easy to tell which one you're gunning for, so I guess it's fine?
Rolled 44>>33502520Well, obviously, they're terrified of the spacial anomaly. So we krump it.
>>33502520All the above, because we have to open a door to both the palace and the dream world and let all the others in, then we can explore with their help
>>33502520>A+CNo reason we can't take in the sights and sounds of this lane of existence while we save their orky asses.>playfulness mpoorwYes Captcha, playfulness and power, Ogres in a nutshell.
Rolled 85>>33502520>[E] [WRITE-IN]Eat the space time anomoly
Rolled 5>>33502520>>33502573No krumping! We capture it in our hat and use it as a bag of holding.
>>33502520>[A] [LOOK AROUND] Might as well explore the room he's in, first!
Rolled 89>>33502520[G] Go stare into the void till it backs down.
Rolled 83>>33502654NO, EAT IT
Rolled 7>>33502669Hat of Holding.
>>33502520>[A] Gatherin' Supplies!>[C] Orcs get a Surprise!>[D] Stop for a burger & fries!
Rolled 18>>33502692We haven't ordered take out in a while. We can hitch a ride back to Ogir place.
>>33502669Why? I mean, yeah that would solve the problem with the least collateral damage, but don't you want to play with the Shiny first?
>>33501592>>33501662Shit. My mind got fucked reading this.>>33502520[A] [LOOK AROUND] Might as well explore the room he's in, first!
>>33502520E. Capture and tame the spatial anomaly! Name it sparks.
Rolled 6>>33502739I was just thinking it would augment us, becomin a different short of shiny

Rolled 60>>33502788And think, if we can find another, we can breed them!It's genius!
>>33502809Exactly! Now we're thinking like Ogres!
>>33502788Okay, that would be kinda awesome.
>>33502788>>33502809I'll throw my lot in with this
Rolled 47>>33502520Tame the anomaly!
>>33502520Well Blorp? You've heard our decision.
... AL... RIGHT, looks like we've got something of a toss-up between:>Look around>Tame anomalySO WE'LL BE DOING BOTH, THEN>***STUPID LUCKY TIME?***ROLL d100! (dice+1d100 in the email field)As usual, best of three! (Diplomacy bonus probably doesn't apply.)
>be declared a threat to reality>tame a space time anomaly for our own amusementWe aren't exactly defying expectations, here. Not that we give a shit.
Rolled 96>>33502947Rolling for luck!
Rolled 29>>33502947COME ON
>>33502788Ok but then we need to open those doors like I said here >>33502619
Rolled 90>>33502947tame sparks!
>>33502962>stupidly successfulMy first roll for the thread and I already feel great.
>>33502963I FAILED! Thank you >>33502962
>>33502983You done well man.
Rolled 47>>33502962Oh goddammit I missed it.
>>33503128It was indeed meant to be so.
>>33503128Well, the other 2 don't really count except for 'super-charging' the Goddess of Luck's intervention. Which has been, uh, ready for a while, I think? I can't remember if we used it in the last few threads or not.
Just gonna point out that random dumb luck has fucked reality.It's like if cthlhu arose and was hit in the head with a steamship, causing his home to arise from the sea, into which man delved, discovered nuclear weapons, and wiped each other out in an atomic Great War.
>>33502947Wait. You needed three rolls or six?Also, did we just re-tame Ogir Place's wayward ex-heating system?
Rolled 55>>33503169WIth the way the rolls work it's basically ready all the time forever.
>>33503169Yes, we used it either in the last thread or the one before that to merge the entire Scaratone Empire into Ogir Place. Ogrecledian Geometry.
>>33503203Case in point.
>>33503193Just three! Although that's kind of a moot point right now.>>33503169Yup, the intervention's off cooldown right now.
>>33503275>>33503287Oh yes. Yessssss. I remember now.
>>33502962>>33502947>>33502520>[X] [LOOK AROUND] Taking stock!>[X] [TAME AROUND] Taking... that!>96>Stupidly Successful!Momentarily ignoring the... whatever it is going on outside, Bawss takes a few seconds to glance around. The chamber is nice, wide, and, until just recently, populated by orcs who're supposedly well-versed in walking through dreams; there's an awful lot of sun imagery carved into the walls, all symmetrical and visually pleasing. There are an assortment of incomprehensibly-shaped metal tools on the ground, scattered next to the sad little body of a goat, and some strange circle drawn with fresh blood; in terms of less horribly sacrificial decor, there's a strange statue of a bird with a bobble head.Boss Bawss Fistboss shrugs, and...>CHOOSE ONE ... grabs the tools. ... grabs the goat corpse. ... grabs the blood. ... grabs the walls.  ... grabs the bobblehead doll. ... grabs nothing, because that'd be looting, an' looting is only for rude 'orrible adventurers who was raised in barns.(Cont. in 10-15 minutes to allow a choice and to type up the thing-taming post!)
>>335034102I don't think they'll be needing that goat body anyway.
Rolled 34>>33503410> ... grabs nothing, because that'd be looting, an' looting is only for rude 'orrible adventurers who was raised in barns.Besides, we don't need any of this crap
>>33503410> ... grabs nothing, because that'd be looting, an' looting is only for rude 'orrible adventurers who was raised in barns. ... grabs nothing, because that'd be looting, an' looting is only for rude 'orrible adventurers who was raised in barns.Except i wan't to literally grab nothing. I want to grab it and take it away to Ogir place.
>>33503410Aww, only one. . . Wait, the walls is an option?What if we took. . . THE FLOOR!? Then we'd get everything above the floor, too!
>>335034102Shed a manly tear for poor goat
>>33503410 ... grabs the blood.Because how do you grab a liquid?
>>33503410>>33503460Just in case my first option, of THE FLOOR, isn't allowed, I go with walls. We need to upgrade our building skills, and having an example of what walls should look like might help.
>>33503410 ... grabs the walls. You never know when you're going to need a good set of walls.
>>33503410> ... grabs nothing, because that'd be looting, an' looting is only for rude 'orrible adventurers who was raised in barnsits been a while blorp. other than gathering new reaction .gifs, whats been keeping you?
>>33503410Hm.>>33503448Change my vote here to 4. The walls might help with the SPACE-TIME ANOMALY.If you can't let them out free-range, you gotta fence them in!
Rolled 89 Literally grab the nothing.
>>33503410>>33503747OH SHIT SURPRISE IDEATHIS BLORP
>>33503410Grab all the nothing that is in the room.
Rolled 12>>33503826We grab so much nothing we create another dimensional prolapse in reality.
>>33503747>>33503826SO MUCH NOTHING BEING YOINKED
Rolled 8>>33503747>>33503771>>33503826>>33503872>>33503893I'd rather just tie this into taming the anomaly. Like we grab the nothing and use it as our anomaly leash.
Rolled 13>>33503934Cecilia is going to lose her collective nothing when Bawss returns.
Rolled 16>>33503979We should grab extra then.
Rolled 56>>33503934So wait, if the spacial anomaly is a black hole. Would we create a white hole if we grabbed nothing?
>>33503979>>33503989We are helping!
>>33504006Well, there would be SOMETHING, at least.
>>33504006>>33504017THEN WE CAN GRAB THAT TOO
Rolled 62>>33504069When the nothing and the something behind it are taken, I assume that the space that was there just disappears?
Rolled 86>>33504208Bawss creates a second Bawss.
>>33504225Ogres discover the art of cloning.
Rolled 59>>33504248Ogres kind of just pop into existence from what we know.We'd discover how babby is formed and answer the age old question of where we come from.
>>33504269Yes, but that's how NEW Ogres are madeThis is making a clone of an OLD Ogre.
Rolled 84>>33504320It'll be a Bawss from a different universe, basically. With his own version of Ogir Place, his own map, his own Queenie.He'll even have that other anomaly so we can breed ours.
Rolled 45We're... getting ahead of ourselves, a bit
Rolled 14Grr... sniping rolls is taking so long :(
>>33504369But, if he has the anomaly too, that means that he got the nothing before we pulled him, so is there a clone of OUR Bawss in his universe, while we pulled a clone of him into our universe?
>>33504369What about Cecilia?
Rolled 78>>33504320Hey, remember way back when we were talking about ogres growing two heads in certain circumstances?Yeah.
Rolled 85>>33504425From what I gather, we would pull each others nothing, and then pull each others something, creating the duplicates simultaneously, spiraling off into their own separate time paradoxical universe. >>33504426She's ogre enough already. Hm, she might actually be useful as an anchor point for the paradoxical universe. Not technically an ogre, but still an ogre.
>>33504452Will the opening picture finally be telling the truth after all this time?Find out soon!
It's been an hour, Blorp confirmed kill?
>>33503410>[X] [TAKE THE NOTHING]That done, Bawss calmly trundles on down the stairs- all sixty of them, but it doesn't occur to him to wonder why orcs need so many godsdamned stairs in the first place- and exits into a plaza, which is currently in absolute chaos.So he whips out the one thing he took from the room.Green-skinned orcs are everywhere, although it's much less noisy than otherwise expected; very few of the civilians are screaming as they flee the anomaly, the rest are single-mindedly going as fast in the other direction as possible. More than a few appear to be taking up arms, joining the smaller stream of taller, more muscular orcs grimly making their way toward the anomaly without comment-And absolutely none of them notice the big ball of nothingness trundling past them.(Cont.)
>>33504556The first kobold skirmisher steps out of the space-time anomaly, drawing a pair of daggers. "Alright- go in fast and hit them before they get those warriors lined up. We'll warp the rest away. Just As Planned!"Dozens of reedy voices echo that battlecry, only to fade away as a seven-foot tall blue ogre straightens up in front of them, seemingly popping up from out of nowhere. Bawss ignores the kobolds' challenges, the fact that he's surrounded by three-foot tall lizardmen with extremely deadly weapons, and even the orcs coming up behind him. He's only got eyes for one thing, and one thing alone."Who's a good boy?"Everyone present SWEARS they just heard some strange, incomprehensible noise.(Cont.)
>>33504704"Dey ain't feedin' you right, huh?" Boss Bawss plucks a bit of nothingness from the nothing held in his hand and tosses it to the space-time anomaly. An unfortunate kobold screams as he's unceremoniously spat out of the warp before the WHOLE wavering portal catches the invisible thing in its... mouth? Entrance? And begins to feed.All around them, kobolds and orcs wail and claw at their eyes, trying to stave off the incipient headache stemming from seeing a tear in reality eating what amounts to antimatter. They scream even more when the portal contorts its form into some impossible non-euclidean shape, prompting Boss Bawss to toss it some more nothing."Dat's right, you do all dis work for da kobolds, an' all you get is da taste of kobold feet, huh? Why don't you come with me? We got dis nice place, see..."Another few bits of nothingness disappear into that gaping maw, and the ogre and the thing that really shouldn't be alive, animate, or at all aware of anything appear to seal some sort of deal.>Nothingness acquired!>Space-Time Anomaly Portal tamed!Boss Bawss Fistboss calmly stows his newfound friend within the nothingness, and then proceeds to unravel his nothingness and wrap it around the everpresent (but frankly indescribable) hat perched upon his brow, before looking over at the orcs and the kobolds. They're still staring at him like a pack of deer and a pack of wolves faced not only with headlights, but with headlights confusing enough to cause an existential crisis strong enough to completely upset the food chain.[A] [HOME] A'right, enough foolin' around, we gotta get back to Ogir Place![B] [HERE] A'right, enough foolin' around, we gotta get Ogir Place HERE![C] [MEDIATE] A'right, enough foolin' around, you don't gotta fight each other, right?[D] [WRITE-IN](...

Rolled 46>>33504754Aww, no rolls.HAVE SOME ANYWAY
Rolled 27>>33504754>[A] [HOME] A'right, enough foolin' around, we gotta get back to Ogir Place!

Rolled 27>>33504754I laughed to the cry.I've missed this quest so much.
>>33504754all the above, lets just open a door to the palace and invite all the boys over here to mediate this place.
Rolled 28>>33504754[HOMEDIATE} "Ey, you boys're probably missing your friends back at Ogir Place right?""And uh, can we not start fightin' yet? I only jus' woke up"
>>33504754Apologies, but I'm going to have to end the thread early tonight; I think I've hit the limit of how much I can do quest related stuff with the schedule I'm on and the amount of sleep I've been getting. Without, like, ending up with an hour and a half between posts.I'll do my best to get the next quest thread out sometime soon, hopefully next week, but that's going to depend on how badly I get my ass beaten by these deadlines I'm facing down.Until next time- thanks for following Ogre Civ Quest, as short as tonight's thread was! I'll tally up the votes and we'll pick up from there next time.
Rolled 54 + 25>>33504754BloooorpNext thread when?You have been missed.
>>33504754[B] [HERE] A'right, enough foolin' around, we gotta get Ogir Place HERE![C] [MEDIATE] A'right, enough foolin' around, you don't gotta fight each other, right?Lets summon our home here THEN talk diplomacy.I'm loving all of this.
>>33504849Well, it was fun. Even if it was short, work and sleep comes first. See you again next time, Blorp.
Rolled 15>>33504866Thiiiiiiiis.MORE FRIENDS MORE FUN.
>>33504754>[C] DIPLOMACY. Tell the Kobolds and the Orcs that neither of them understands the basic fabric of reality. The universe doesn't need a constant river of sacrificed blood to keep on going. There's no plan that everything can follow.It's Ogres all the way down. You can fight it, squeezing your eyes shut and with your fingers jammed in your ears until your head pops like. . . one of them popping things that gets a mess everywhere, or you can grab ahold and go along for the ride.But what you can't do is try and keep reality workings the way you think it should with blood sacrifices, and cold logical calculations. Because Ogres have been focused into a purpose now.And it's either get on board or get gone.
>>33504849Thank you so much Blorp it was awesome! i'm really happy to have been here for this!I'm also really happy that my suggestions to tame the portal and take the nothing went through
>>33504754>[B] [HERE] A'right, enough foolin' around, we gotta get Ogir Place HERE![C] [MEDIATE] A'right, enough foolin' around, you don't gotta fight each other, right?
Blorp: Reminder for the next time you start a new turn, Quest option to try and retrieve the Orcs we stranded in the Dreamworld. Because the younger voice that got smacked around sounds like the type of guy we'd put in charge of the Orcs joining Ogir Place. Also, it's just the polite thing to do.
Has someone archived this yet?
>>33504849>scrolling through /tg/>Huh. Someone is using the Ogre Quest pic>...>ITS HAPPENING>ITS ALREADY OVER>Oh god damn it.I haven't got to read the thread, but have a welcome back gift. It is like, a third done because I have been a lazy git.
