PREVIOUS THREADS: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Poor+Traderhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zPNoTFGHhcIn the world of Valaer, the Battle of Tirinia changed everything. That was 680 years ago.Here lies the human Kingdom of Therindel - less a Kingdom than a confederacy of lordships, duchies, principalities, city-states, et cetera - banded together under the constant threat of attack from the mysterious Wood Elves of the eastern land of Xalfacia. For many centuries, these lords and rulers have bickered amongst each other for the right to succeed the King who fell in battle at Tirinia against the Elves.Until ten years ago however, when Lord Leandros Lysandros Layton Lamarr the Fiftieth declared his capital city open to all lords and masters for trade, commerce, and alliance. This city within this divided kingdom is the High City of Imperial City! This is the city of adventure, where Adventurers gather to duel, to brag of their accomplishments, and receive missions from the needy and the poor! This is the city where Heroes and Legends are made!You are not one of those people.You are Kasimir Kanenas. A few years ago you came to the High City of Imperial City for opportunity and work, only to find yourself in the deep straits of poverty. There is one good way of making money however, and that is exploiting the naivety of adventurers and their belief in the importance of all things. It’s a meagre living, but it’s a living for you, as a poor trader in these hard times.
>>36122864The clattering and stomping of horse hooves against the stone streets is nothing compared to the cheers and the yells of the crowd standing alongside the street, making their bets and cheering for their favorite adventurer. You, Miss Eckhardt, Rusky, and Stiina stand in the street, watching and observing along with other marketeers before the Joust reopens. Miss Eckhardt herself doesn’t look very interested, unlike you and Stiina.Heck, you got thirty silver down on this.What you were watching now was a street Joust. There was only a rope to indicate the barrier between horses, different equipment and horses between adventurers, and a street for them to bear lances against one other. Of course this was all before the actual Joust between the nobles themselves of course.The first adventurer, a hefty man wearing a huge iron breastplate and leather armor underneath rears his horse, heaving his lance into the air. The crowd goes wild, the women especially throwing their garters and their hats to him. You didn’t know his name, but you did know him as the Big One.The other adventurer does not have the luxury of a breastplate, only a small shield. What he lacks in protection, he can make up for in accuracy without a cumbersome shield to stop his aim or a breastplate to lock his arms. You knew not his name either, but you knew him as the Underdog.Stiina leans in towards you, whispering. “Which one were you betting on winning again?”> Underdog> Big one> Write in
>>36122874>> UnderdogWhy not
>>36122874> UnderdogFUCK YEAH, THIS QUEST!
>>36122940Wouldn't get too excited. This is apparently the last one.
>>36123013Yeah, there go everyone's plans
>>36123056You are not alone.
>>36123091I suspect those are why this is the last thread.
>>36123147The Magic Shop series of quests seem to only go on for a few threads and never seem to settle on any one character as a protagonist for long. Perhaps next time we'll play as that debt collector or as a member of the expeditionary force that the princess may assemble.
>>36123013>This is apparently the last onewhere'd you get that from?That would really suck.
>>36123379His twitter said this is the final thread.
>>36123379>GermanSchteel @GermanSchteel>The final thread of Poor Trader Quest is up.
> UnderdogYou cross your arms. “The underdog there.” You point to him as he sits upon his dark little courser, accompanied by his companion, a tan-skinned woman. “He’s got spunk and I like it. And he better win otherwise that’s 30 silver down the drain.”Miss Eckhardt nods. “Good thing you don’t have a gambling addiction.”Oh, it could be far worse than a gambling addiction.Satchel, standing in the front alongside with Herringbone, laughs. “I told you you’re making a big mistake, that boy couldn’t hold a lance if it was his second hand!” Herringbone simply shrugs, watching eagerly for contact.The judge throws down the towel, signaling the charge. The two charge at each other, bringing their lances down. Stiina holds onto your arm, eagerly, waiting for it to come to blows. Miss Eckhardt as well glances up, apparently interested now. Rusky howls, jumping up and down trying to get a view of the action.They close in at full gallop. No facial protection, not even chest protection for the underdog. Just raw spirit and determination!And finally, contact is made.The Underdog flips off his horse, end over end, splinters of wood showering over him. The Big One cheers, throwing down his broken Lance and throwing his arms in the air as the crowd cheers him on. “Yes, yes! Ahahaha!”“Whooo!” Stiina claps, running over to the Big One.Ah.Damn it.Satchel grins smugly, holding out his hand. “Well…?”> “Fine. You got lucky, Satchel.”> “Um, it appears I left my silver back at the Market Square.”> Write in
>>36123403> “Fine. You got lucky, Satchel.”
>>36123403>> “Fine. You got lucky, Satchel.”
>>36123403Would you be swayed if the overwhelming majority wanted to continue playing poor trader?
>>36123301I think it's becaise people were trying to turn it into a story about a traveling harem rather than, as the OP probably intended, a story about a down on his luck merchant.
>>36123403>“Fine. You got lucky, Satchel.”>>36123527I don't think that's the case. I think GermanSchteel just wants to tell the story about the Magic Shop universe from a lot of differing points of view rather than just from one type of person.
>>36123549Maybe. This is the first one of his quests I've played. I didn't know it was part of an existing universe.
> “Fine. You got lucky, Satchel.”You place the sack of coins into his grubby little greedy hands that filthy dwarf. “There, you got lucky, Satchel. It’s going to run out one day,” you say.He chuckles, tossing it into his own personal inventory rift. “I tell you what, so is yours, Kanenas. You and these pretty little girls, and your shop of yours? It’s all going to run out one day,” he says. “Just saying, you better prepared to fish for gold in the Dustbowl like the humans of old.” Ah yes, the Dustbowl. It took nearly a century to cultivate all the farmlands lost during the Great Winter. Humanity nearly went extinct then.“Sure,” you say. You gently punch him on the shoulder, letting him wander back to his stand at the Jousting Grounds. You walk over to Stiina, as she exchanges words with the Big One.“… now jousting, it’s a noble sport, an adventurous sport fraught with risks and all that,” says the Big One as he looks down on Stiina from his horse. He smiles warmly, being a bit more sociable than you thought he’d be. “Miss, are you going to be partaking in the Joust?”Stiina smiles. “Well, I’d love to, but I don’t have a horse.”And as if on-cue, the Underdog walks up to the two, walking his horse on a bridle. “As is custom.” He limps a bit, holding his chest. He sets the bridle into the hands of the Big One. “Very good contact. Damn near killed me.”[1/2]
>>36123790[2/2]The Big One nods, handing the bridle off to Stiina. “Next time, be better prepared. If I had hit you in the head or if you landed the wrong way, things could’ve been much worse. ” He looks down at Stiina. “And as for you, Miss, some up and coming nobles like myself will be partaking in the Joust alongside the likes of the Princess herself and even Lord Lamarr. Guy by the name of Sir Schwarz as well is coming in, scary guy, seems familiar.” He gives Stiina a thumbs up. “Sign up’s at the grounds, hopefully I’ll see you.” He spurs his horse on, happily walking along with his companions to the grounds.Stiina happily looks at the horse, grinning.Oh now, you know that look, she’s got an idea.> “You’re not jousting.”> “So you’re gonna joust, huh?”> Write in

>>36123807>“So you’re gonna joust, huh?”
We got any old cooking pots?>Hey Stiina, you'll need some armour if you're going to joust. And I just so happen to have some genuine Tirinian-era plate. And just for you, a special discount...
>>36123807>>36124005I back this. I back this so much.
>>36123807She's either dead, or going to be injured, taken care of by the big guy, and they end up togetherGuardfags will be devestated
>>36124066Okay, I'm worried now. Fuck you.
> “So you’re gonna joust, huh?”You cross your arms. “So you’re jousting?”She smiles at you and Miss Eckhardt. “Oooh, maybe. I mean…” She shrugs. Then after a minute of awkwardly staring at you both, she then says, “Yeah, totally.”“Well, you’re lucky the Black Baron isn’t around,” says Miss Eckhardt. “Otherwise you’d never walk out of the Jousting ring alive.” She’s blunt, but that’s otherwise completely true.“Speaking of walking out of the Jousting ring alive,” you say. “Stiina, you realize how dangerous the sport is? You’re a City Guard, you don’t even have a breastplate.”Stiina waves you off. “They give us shields and lances. It’ll be fine!” She quickly hops onto the horse, and it whines, hopping up a bit and nearly sending Stiina off. “Whoa! Okay!” She hugs the horse’s neck. “Now, admittedly, I haven’t ridden a horse since I was a child but I should be able to hold myself at a simple gallop. That’s what stirrups are for.”You sigh. “Just be careful, Stiina. I don’t want to see you get lamed out there.” She smiles warmly on you. “That would cost me money.” She drops her smile, glaring at you. “I’m just saying.”“Right.” She giggles a bit, snapping the reins and sending the horse forward to the Grounds.Miss Eckhardt looks to you, crossing her arms. “The Joust doesn’t start for another few hours.

>>36124213>Get some BreakfastI get the feeling that most of the customers won't be coming in until an hour or so before the joust. We'd just be trying to hawk our wares to other people setting up their own stalls.
>>36124213>Try to get Stiina a proper breastplate.She's going to need one anyways when she joins the Free Companies.
>“Well, you’re lucky the Black Baron isn’t around,” says Miss Eckhardt. “Otherwise you’d never walk out of the Jousting ring alive.” She’s blunt, but that’s otherwise completely true.>Guy by the name of Sir Schwarz as well is coming in, scary guy, seems familiar.
> Get some Breakfast--You drop fourty silver to the man at the food stand then bring over your plates of food to the little table amongst others to Miss Eckhardt and Rusky. The grounds aren’t open just yet which means there are scarce few people here, other than the merchants getting ready to peddle their wears like you and the cooks getting all the food prepared.Still, twenty silver for a full meal? At least Miss Eckhardt paid for it otherwise you’d never eat anything here, you’d rather starve.But then again, strudel with cream, a cup of ale, a few cubes of cheese, and even a pork rib. Excellent! You haven’t had anything so filling. And it’s probably why Miss Eckhardt is looking at you as if you were slaughtering a baby that you’re eating so fast. You look up at her, confused. “What?”Miss Eckhardt sighs. “You could at least use your utensils.”You look to the side. Knife and fork, right. You take both, then start eating slightly more slowly. “Riiight… so Miss Eckhardt. You never really gave me a real answer about what you wanted to do.”Miss Eckhardt shrugs, handing the pork rib off to Rusky, who happily chews it as he lies down next to her. “As much as I trust you, Mister Kanenas, and I have trusted much to you.” Oh yes, very much. “I’m not entirely sure about it.”You nod. “You still don’t want to leave the High City?”“I grew up here,” she says. “Like I said, the adventuring life isn’t for me. I’d like to live my days here, and if invasion comes and tries to force me out, I’ll just sit at my doorstep and let it happen, come what may.”> “I’ll respect that.”> “You should go, it’ll be fun.”> Write in
>>36124636>> “I’ll respect that.”Yeah okay
>>36124636Adventuring is more about the people you're with than the things you do. A good band sticks together and gets one another. You didn't fit in with your last group, but you will fit in with some weirdos like us.
>>36124636>> “I’ll respect that.”
>>36124636>“I’ll respect that.”>Write inThere's a lot to experience out there even if you're a perfectly sane person who doesn't want to risk her life for an adrenaline rush and dubious promises of treasure.
>>36124636> “I’ll respect that.”
>>36124737That's a good point. Kanenas isn't looking to go adventuring, he's just moving a business.
> “I’ll respect that.”You nod. “I’ll respect that, Miss Eckhardt. You’ll at least stick to your principles.” You take a sip of ale. You sigh, if you are going to shove off and leave the High City, you will miss Miss Eckhardt. Those lovely legs of hers, that firm rear, her cute little squeaks when- No, no, that’s your business, no one else’s.Still however, now you are kind of worried for Stiina. Hopefully she gets some easy targets in during the Joust.You finally finish off your breakfast, licking at the rest of it as it lies on your fingertips. “That’s good, very good.” You look around, then blink. Hm, is that… “Um, Miss Eckhardt.” She looks up then looks to where you’re pointing.Down on a bench at a table lies a very worn out Vogelvolk, a very familiar Vogelvolk. A torn up and tattered looking blanket lies over him, and his bags have all spilled out, revealing jars, bottles, and metal parts. Is he dead?A janitor walks by. “He ain’t dead. He just showed up here last night, we couldn’t make him leave, so we just left him there,” he says.Ah. Aloysious.> Eh, go see what’s wrong with him> Well, back to your stand.> Write in

>>36125146> Eh, go see what’s wrong with himAny one have an idea of who he is?
>>36125476Dude that made the gun
> Eh, go see what’s wrong with himYou and Miss Eckhardt walk over to him. You gently place your hand on his feathers, then nudge him a bit. “Oi, Aloysious. Are you awake?” He grumbles, fluttering his wings rapidly before settling down. “Aloysious, it’s me, Kanenas. You remember me?”He turns over, intent on warding you off. But he immediately falls down on the ground, and starts flailing his wings and his legs, screaming and squawking. You and Miss Eckhardt back off. “Agh! Kut, kut, kut!” he yells in his native dialect. “Flikker op, sunava bitch!”Well, that’s one way to greet you.He turns over again, writing himself. He grabs his head, groaning. “What- what do you want!?”“It’s me, Kanenas.” You motion to Miss Eckhardt, who simply hides behind you as a human shield. “And this is Miss Eckhardt. Remember us?”“Eh?” He squints his eyes at you two, standing up straight and proceeding to tower over you all by over a foot. “Ooooh…” He looks inebriated, plastered like a statue. “I remember you, sort of. You’re the chap I sold my Schietgeweer to.” You clambers back onto the bench, then slams his head on the table. “Go away.”You cross your arms. “What’s wrong?”He flicks his wing at you, and you flinch backward in surprise. “Isn’t it obvious!? Nobody will take my design!” He throws his bag at you, revealing messes of torn up papers, revealing sketches and concepts. “All of it is worthless, worthless!” He cries, sobbing on the table.The janitor walks over. “Hey, birdbrain. You’re going to be much longer? Joust is going to start in a bit.”“Give me another hour!” shouts Aloysious.> “Maybe you shouldn’t have sold the prototype to me.”> Comfort Aloysious> “Well, that’s sad.”> Write in

>>36125593>Take a look at his design
>>36125593>Look at his designs>Comfort AloysiousWe do personally know the Princess, and she knows us. Maybe we can try to pitch something like that to her, as the anon in >>36125642 suggested.Also, maybe he just needs to think smaller? Bows and crossbows have cornered the long-range market so far, but maybe a compact sidearm would be a better sell.
>>36125664this. if he can make a few, we can sell em at like 2k a piece, during the tournament.
>>36125704Or larger! make fucking CANNONS!
>>36125738I think they already have cannons in this setting.
>>36125593What >>36125704 says. The Princess is going to be leading a military expedition. It's the perfect opportunity to show off his prototypes in actual combat rather than trying to peddle them in the capital.
>>36125769Bigger cannons!or maybe he has something that just vibrates?
> Comfort AloysiousYou sit down next to Aloysious. “There, there…” You pat him on the back as he sobs. “Come on, it’s not all bad. I mean, you have yourself a fine weapon, it’s just far too ahead of its time perhaps.” You snap your finger. “Tell you what, I happen to know the Princess, perhaps-““Forget it!” he shouts. “I tried to implore her of the idea last night!” He slams his wing on the table. “And all we did was have sex!”“Yeah-“ You blink. What? “You… nevermind.” You suppose they don’t call her the promiscuous for nothing. “Look, Aloysious. You shouldn’t beat yourself up like this. Maybe you just need better marketing.”“I suppose,” he says. He stands up. “You know what, forget it, Mister Kaneas.” He hops onto the table, his talons digging into the wood construction. “From here on out! I will travel, and I will show the worth of the Schietgeweer by any means necessary! It will be done!” He flicks his wing at you in a point. “Mister Kanenas, Miss Eckhardt, you two will be credited as my co-inventors for supporting me! But now I must go!” He flies off, taking his designs and his bags with him.You sigh. You were hoping you could sell more of those useless things.The bell rings across the city. The Joust is about to begin. Miss Eckhardt stands up. “Looks like the joust is about to begin. Shall we head down to the ring?”> Go to the ring> Go to your stall> Write in

>>36125977>Go to the ringLet's at last watch Stinna's match
> Go to your stallThe stall at the Jousting Grounds is much neater, much more sturdier, so much more sturdier that Miss Eckhardt can sit on the counter as people start coming out for the Joust. Your stall is on a platform behind the seating area for the people coming to watch, allowing you a good view of the ring while you sell items and the like. With all these books Miss Eckhardt has and all these knick-knacks you have secured, things should be relatively good.The trumpets sound off, signaling the approach of all the competitors. You see Stiina on her horse, wearing a borrowed helmet and a borrowed rusty breastplate as she rides along with all of them. The crowd starts cheering on and on, waving garters, flags, and handkerchiefs to the many.You’re not even worried that all of the other competitors look more well-equipped than she does, if anything she stands out.They trot onto the field, facing Lord Lamarr at his own little viewing station. They raise their lances in salute. And then the crowd quietens down.Lord Lamarr stands up, smiling upon everyone. “Ladies and gentlemen, of the High City of Imperial City! Welcome to this year’s King’s Day Joust! Before us stand the brave, the proud, those who would venture forth from their homes to face the unknown, and for that we thank them for their service to King and Country! All of them! So dine well, eat your fill, and enjoy the festivities! Happy King’s Day!” The crowd cheers.Miss Eckhardt smiles. “We’re about to sing the anthem.” You roll your eyes. “Ah, come on. I know you’re a foreigner, but any good man knows the anthem.”> Sing with them> Stay silent> Write in

> Sing with themYou cross your arms. “Don’t test me, Miss Eckhardt. I’ll pass every time.” The trumpets begin sounding. And with that follows the singing of thousands. From the old, to the young, to the men to the women, to the soldiers to the merchants and the adventurers. All people of Therindel, divided but united under a single flag. Their song echoes through the plains, through the mountains, and over the hills and far away, unlike the Elves who tried to silence it.We will rally from the hillside, we’ll gather from the plainsShouting the battle cry of freedom!We will fight them round the bend and we’ll fight them on the mainShouting the battle cry of freedom!The kingdom forever, we’ll never let it down!Down with the Elven, and up with the crown!While we’ll rally round his flag, boys, rally once again!Shouting the battle cry of freedom!We are springing to the cause as he came to from beforeShouting the battle cry of freedom!And we’ll fill the vacant ranks with a million freemen moreShouting the battle cry of freedom!The kingdom forever, we’ll never let it down!Down with the Elven, and up with the crown!While we’ll rally round his flag, boys, rally once again!Shouting the battle cry of freedom!The crowd cheers, happily shouting and throwing up their caps, stomping their feet, and singing more verses to the anthem. The Joust will begin now! Miss Eckhardt happily claps, being one of the louder singers to it. Rusky howls, sitting in front of the stall, his head up high as he howls. “Glorious!” yells Miss Eckhardt. “Most glorious!”> Start shouting and heralding> Talk to Miss Eckhardt> Go down to the Ring, see if Stiina is available> Write in

From the times of elves and the King himself!” You pick up a bowl, just a simple clay bowl you found lying on the street. “And an elven war disk, used to slaughter countless thousands of humans! What will you pay for this!? I’d pay fifty silver which is the actual price!”Unfortunately, not many people really go for anything. A few hours pass by with no biters. You have to assume this is mostly because of the Joust. Nobody is interested in books or a bowl. They’re interested in the prospect of watching someone possibly get killed. You sigh, uncivilized it is.“Ooh, lala~!” You blink. Could it be? Miss Sloane Selachi, crossing her arms and smiling at you. “If it isn’t Kasimir Kanenas at the Joust. I thought you wouldn’t be able to afford to sell at the Joust this year.”You shrug. “I raised the money. You going to buy something?”She scratches her chin, looking over Miss Eckhardt’s wares. Miss Eckhardt happily pulls up a book for her. “We’ve got lots of different genres and other topics for you to read! All within an affordable price.”“Hmm…” Sloane looks at you. “What do you think, Kasimir?”> “Just buy something and leave.”> “They’re good, buy one.”> “Heck, I’m not making this decision for you, you’re a grown up.”> Write in

>>36127212>> “They’re good, buy one.”
> “They’re good, buy one.”“You know me, I’m a scholar. They’re good, Sloane, so you should at least buy one or two.”Sloane smiles happily, picking up a book and looking it over. She flips through the pages. “Ew, Old Standard.” Miss Eckhardt visibly deflates at that. “Hm… you got anything in Modern?”Miss Eckhardt nods, holding up a book, a very huge book. “We have the Orevango Trilogy. Fifty silver.” Sloane happily sets down the silver for it, taking it and quickly tossing it into her inventory rift without much of a thought. “Thank you!” Instantly, Miss Eckhardt is lot happier now.Sloane nods. “Yeah, yeah.” She looks to you. “Hey, Kasimir, since your mother made that dent into your debt, I was wondering.” You quirk your brow. “You know, once you pay it off. Do you know what you’re going to do?”You sigh. “It’s not going to be anything with you, Sloane. I’m sorry.” She frowns at that, grunting. “I don’t know what I’ll do when it’s paid off. You should get a move on, alright?”She nods. “Yeah, see you round.” She walks off, her hips swaying as she goes to watch the Joust.Miss Eckhardt says, “A bit frigid, don’t you think?”“Loan sharks, I just can’t get into it,” you say. You hear the explosion of a shattering lance and the cheer of the crowd.The announcer yells, “Sir Seversky Schwarz has unhorsed Jerome Jericho! Sir Schwarz advances! His next opponent, Princess Patricia Parisia Perrinius Prometheus the Prmoiscuous!”“Hey!” The Princess leans on your counter, chewing on an apple happily, not even bothering with a breastplate of her own. You could probably figure that out though, she’d need at least two for those puppies. “Looks like I’m up next!” She smiles at you, and Miss Eckhardt looks at you a bit enviously. “So, Kasimir, gonna dump this spot, see me wipe the little smarmy bastard off the field?”> “Not right now.”> “Sure.”> Write in

> “Not right now.”You shake your head. “Nah. I gotta watch the shop, my lady.”She looks around, to see a few people scanning and browsing the wares of some bored looking merchants. “For what? Kingdom come?” You shrug at that. “Ah, whatever. Tell you what though, I saw that Stiina girl who wanted to join my Free Company.”You nod. “Yeah? How is she?”She shrugs. “I must admit, she seems a bit too eager. I’d rather have more experienced adventurers than City Guard veterans. Though, maybe her performance in the Joust might change my mind.” She pats your cheek. “Welp, see you. Maybe when I win, I’ll invite you up to my room, we can have a victory shag with my favorite succubus pets.” She waves bye to you, then looks over to Miss Eckhardt. “You can come along too, It’s been a while since I’ve had girls as cute as you.”Miss Eckhardt blinks, blushing a little. “Um… okay my lady.”“Ta, ta!” She trots off, happily.Miss Eckhardt quickly recovers. “So, Stiina is going to be joining the Free Companies. I assume you’re going to join her, huh?”> “I’d love to.”> “Probably not.”> Write in

>>36127924No idea yet, part of me wants too, part of me wants to stay here. My physique isn't being helpful either.

>>36127924>"I'd love to but I can't."
>>36128122She's a princess still, so she is a noble in name if not act. Plus she's the master of siege, a.k.a. the Rogal Dorn of the kingdom.
>>36128233You can give her all the titles in the world, she still ain't noble
>>36128252Ok I fell for your bait once, nevermore 6/10
> Write inYou shrug. “I don’t know yet. We’ll have to wait and see.” You start numbering thins off on your fingers. “First I got to settle my debts, then I have to make sure things are good back here in terms of money. You know?” She shrugs at that. “I just don’t know.”Miss Eckhardt nods. “Well, we should hope Stiina makes it through okay, right?” You nod. Of course you should hope. Heck, you’d be up there jousting for her if you could. You sit down in a chair, sighing. “Right. Let’s just get back to peddling our wares. Alright?”“Okay, Mister Kanenas.” She sits down next to you, crossing her arms. “Hopefully, we get a lot of customers today!”--Lunch rolls by. Only two or three people come by to buy something. Some poor idiot actually fell for the Elven War Disk trick, and he actually overpaid you with one hundred silver for it. Idiot. But still, you only made three hundred silver, at least you did. Miss Eckhardt only made the silver she made off of Sloane. Seems people don’t buy books at a Joust.You did hear Stiina make her second victory against another adventurer though, which was nice. And indeed, she walks up to your counter, happy and giddy, covered in wooden shrapnel. “This is amazing! I can’t wait to see who my next opponent is! I’ll ride them down like grass!”You nod, smiling back. “Save it, Stiina. Next match is the Princess and Sir Schwartz. Whoever wins, you’ll fight.”“Besides,” says Miss Eckhardt. “Overconfidence and hubris can be your weakness, you shouldn’t let your guard down.”She waves you both off, hissing air from her mouth. “Pssh. You two are a bunch of defeatists.”“Just being cautious,” you say.“Well come on then!” she says. “Come join me at the Ring! It’ll be fun! You’ll get front row seats!”> “Fine.”> “No thanks.”> Write in
>>36128369> “Fine.”Been slow as all hell today.
>>36128369>“Fine.”Not many book-buying people at a martial event, I guess. Perhaps we'll have better luck once the main event is over.
>>36128369>Sounds like fun.>This better not end in heartbreak
> “Fine.”You nod. “Fine, fine.” You look down at Rusky. “Rusky, hold down the fort.” You place a be back sign as Rusky dutifully sits by your stall, wagging his tail and glaring down people who pass on by. With that, you and Miss Eckhardt follow Stiina down to the ring.--The fence by the sidelines is reserved for competitors waiting their turn. They feed their horses, make sure their lances are weighted right, have their companions keep their armor together, everything. Stiina just sort of sits around with her horse, sipping on a cup of hot chocolate. Miss Eckhardt looks around, “Wow, the Grounds are so big.”“Of course,” you say. “Jousting is one of the biggest sports in Therindel. Dangerous but entertaining.”“That’s right!” Stiina sits up a bit, pointing over to the Princess, who is busy waiting at her starting position. You can see one of Companion Cavalry ride up to her, and start whispering in her ear. “And I figure if I can get the Princess’ favor, I’m a shoe-in for a good position in her Free Company!”You nod, crossing your arms. “Yep, and I figure that…” You squint as the Princess frowns, uncharacteristically. She sighs, then nods, patting the cavalryman on his shoulder. She turns her horse away from the ring and starts riding off. “… is she withdrawing?”Just to confirm it, an attendant brings her flag down from the post. The announcer shouts, “Princess Patricia Parisia Perrinius Prometheus the Promiscuous withdraws!” The crowd groans in defeat, muttering about how they got ripped off and how she should’ve kept on. “Sir Schwarz’s next opponent will be Staff Sergeant Stiina Stelara Strafniki of the City Guard!”Something’s not right. Stiina and Miss Eckhardt look at her competition, a very simple looking man, with grey streaks in his black hair, and scars below the chin barely visible by his black armor, Sir Schwarz. “I’ll go see what’s up,” says Miss Eckhardt. She quickly runs over to one of his attendants.[1/3]
>>36128785[2/4]Stiina narrows her eyes. “Why do you think she withdrew?”You shrug. “Could be anything.”Miss Eckhardt starts pushing a willing attendant up to you all. She shoves him forward. “Tell them!”The attendant says, “It’s just a Joust, I don’t understand-““Tell them!” she says. You can see Sir Schwarz look at you all, concernedly.The attendant sighs. “Introducing my Lord and Master…” He motions to Sir Schwarz.Or rather…

>>36128812[4/4]Stiina goes pale at that. You step back as well, flinching. All the competitors halt their doings, looking over to the Black Baron himself.

> Write inYou quickly walk to Stiina’s front. “Now, listen, Stiina. I know you’re an adult, and I know you can make your own decisions. But you have to realize this is a terrible idea, correct? This man has conquered nations, razed them to the ground, wrestled with the mountain giants, and is quite possibly the closest thing Therindel has to a living King. You can’t hope to defeat him.”Stiina pushes you aside, glaring at you. She looks to the attendant. “Look, I’m ready to fight him.”Miss Eckhardt steps up. “Stiina please, you have to withdraw.”You all pause, and go quiet as the Black Baron himself trots up to you all. “Is everything okay?” he says in his grizzly voice. “Are you ready to joust, Miss Strafniki?” You feel the blood in you go cold at the sound of his voice. You are standing in the presence of one of the most feared men in Therindel. “I hope you will not withdraw just because of my reputation.” He smirks, chuckling a bit. “Maybe you’ll unhorse me, hehehe.”Stiina smiles, obviously forced. “Ah, yeah, hehe. Of course, my Lord, I will be ready to joust in just a minute.”“Very good.” One of his Companion Cavalry hands him a lance, and with that the Baron slips on his helmet and goes back to his position. The crowd is quiet, whispering and muttering.Stiina climbs on, grabbing a lance. “Right, let’s go.” You grab the reins. “Kasimir, let go.” You still hold her reins. “The horse, Kasimir. I’m going whether you like it or not.”“He’ll kill you,” you say.“Then let him kill me,” she says furiously. “… if I can’t be a woman, I’ll at least be a hero. The one girl who stood up to the Baron, and probably died for it.”You narrow your eyes. “Is this what this is about? The fact that you can’t birth children? Stiina, when he jousts, he thrusts his lance at the last moment! He’ll break you!”Stiina leans down to you, glaring at you. “If you love me. You will let go of the reins.”> Let go of the reins> Hold on> Write in

> Let go of the reins> Write inYou don’t want to let go. Even if you didn’t love Stiina, even if she was just some random stranger to you, you wouldn’t have let go. You wouldn’t just let someone be killed like that. Miss Eckhardt looks at you, pleading with her eyes for you to hang onto her reins. Stiina simply glares at you, but you can see a hint of her pleading for you to let go as well.You sigh.You should let go. Dina would want you to let go. And that’s precisely what you do.She canters on over to her position. Before Miss Eckhardt can yell at you, you quickly run over to the crowd, then stand up on the fence. “People of the High City of Imperial City! Staff Sergeant Stiina Stelara Strafniki is one of our most beloved City Guardswomen! She needs your help now! She needs a breastplate, a breastplate and a helmet! Will you be the one to hand her the armor that defeats the might of the Black Baron himself?”The crowd talks and converses with one another. You don’t expect someone to just randomly start making armor in the middle of the crowd. It’s time consuming work! Nor do you expect someone to just give you a-“Here you go!” You look down to see Satchel, with a fresh iron breastplate and a fully enclosed helmet. “On the house, just for Miss Strafniki.”You take it, smiling. “Thank you, Satchel.” You hop down, nodding to him. You quickly run over to Stiina, who looks at you, confusedly, but then she sees the armor you have. She starts stripping out of her old rusty breastplate. You throw her the new one, and she quickly sets it on properly. You hand her the helmet as well. “Good luck, okay?”[1/2]
>>36129670[2/2]She smiles, then places her helmet on, obscuring her face. “I don’t need luck. It’s King’s Day.” You nod, then move to the fence to observe.You sit down with Miss Eckhardt, who watches wordlessly, breathlessly. You cross your arms.For the love of the King, Stiina, please live.The flag is dropped. Both launch from their positions at each other, their lances brought low to meet each other. The crowd cheers Stiina’s name, pumping their fists. As they get closer, the chanting gets louder, and louder.Then contact is made.Time just seems to stop right then and there. You see Stiina’s lance glance off the side of the Baron’s breastplate, not even scratching the iron. The Baron’s own lance though meets it mark, right at Stiina’s head. He’s got an accurate thrust, and when the lance explodes, you almost see how Stiina’s neck just snaps.And finally, when they pass, she simply slumps over and falls out of the saddle. The crowd is quiet. Miss Eckhardt covers his mouth, in shock. All the competitors are silent, some mourning, one even crying terribly. You can see the nobles on the other side look on, grimly.Everything just seemed to stop.[2/3]
>>36129690GOD FUCKING DAMNIT>right at Stiina’s headWell thats a disqualification, head strikes are illegal
>>36129690no no no no no no no don't you cripple our waifu GS, please fuck no

>>36129778I hope she's dead.If not she is definetly crippled and that is way way worse, she ain't gonna want none of that.
[3/3]--You sit on the steps leading into the grounds. The Joust so far is wrapping up, and the cheer and livelihood is back again. Stiina’s death has been quickly forgotten thanks to the bread and the circuses of Lord Lamarr’s celebrations. It is King’s Day after all. You should be celebrating.And yet, you are not.You don’t remember much of what happened immediately after her death. You remember cradling her body when she died. The Black Baron apologizing as if all he did was break a vase. Miss Eckhardt was nigh-inconsolable.And that was that. Somehow, you ended up here underneath the snowfall. People pass on by, not even giving you a second thought.You’ve been here so long, the snow has piled up on you by inches.Well, you let go, Dina. Look where that got you.“Mister Kanenas.” You turn your eyes up to see Miss Eckhardt, holding a cup of hot chocolate. “Are you okay?” You nod a bit, shuffling some snow from your head. She dusts some snow from the step, then sits down next to you. “Her death is deplorable.”You nod at that.She blinks, then sighs, looking ahead. “I’m sorry. If you don’t want to talk, we don’t have to talk.”> “We can talk.”> Remain quiet> “I’d rather be alone.”> Write in

>>36130065No, which is why this one is so shit, it was going in every direction except grimderp.Then he drove it into the ground and utterly killed any enjoyment I had in this quest and in Magic Shop Quest.
> “We can talk.”You nod. “We can talk,” you shakily. “I just don’t know what to say.”“You tried so hard to keep her from doing it,” she says. “I’m sorry- that’s not what you want to hear um…” She brushes a bit of her hair back, biting her lip. “I don’t know what to say either.”You cross your arms. “Stiina died doing what she thought was right. I won’t say anything about that, and I certainly won’t make light of her death.” You lean back, looking up at the stars. “But I think it has taught me something.” Miss Eckhardt turns to you, sipping on her hot chocolate, awaiting your word. “I guess the world just doesn’t like it when I’m actually successful at something. I don’t know what to do anymore.”Miss Eckhardt grunts. “Now that’s just hogwash.” You glare at her. “Don’t give me that look, Mister Kanenas.” She presses her finger to your chest. “I know this is a time of mourning, she was killed not six hours ago. And you know what, would Stiina really want you hanging around in the dumps like this?”“Miss Eckhardt-““No!” She throws down her drink, spilling it down the steps and stands up. “You can always mourn Stiina later. But you’re not going to get anywhere by letting her death destroy you.” She stomps her foot. “By the King, it’s not right! These are hard times for all of us damn it but it’s not right at all!”You sigh.Miss Eckhardt takes your hand. “I’m with you, Kasimir.” She grips it as hard as she can, looking you in the eye. “I’m with you.

>>36130370She was a guard who ate three square meals a day and was trained how to use a sword. We're a glorified hobo who's been eating crackers and dust for years. Do you seriously think we could have stopped her if she really wanted to go out there?
This really does remind me of the time when we were told we can't pivot turn our witch in Mecha musume but anon decided we should do it anyway. But Magic quest got depressing for me because of this.

But six hours ago someone who was close to me - who always had my back when I was down - who wanted nothing more than to see me succeed - he broke her like a fucking rag doll. You can fill in the holes, Miss Eckhardt, but you'll still see where they are.That hot chocolate's coming out of your pay, by the way. Hope you enjoyed it."
I don't know man. I don't see the point. I just don't see it any more.
>>36130391Harping on about what? Is it wrong to want to not let her go? We loved her for gods sake, we're in a setting where all of that is justified and exists, we've just seen the woman we love murdered by some grimderp DMPC, so why the fuck wouldn't we try to get her back seeing as we know it can happen in this universe?
>>36130411it is the same anons do dumb shit and get mad about it
>>36130405We could of jumped out infront of her horse and said something like over my dead body will you be able to pass.
>>36130419What a shit
>>36130411>But Magic quest got depressing for me because of this.yeah, the blow would be lessened some if he didn't just ruin Magic Shop Quest by association with this fucking mess
>>36130428Dude, call the baron what you want, but he had a full page of titles, that screamed "Im going to kill everyone you love while wanking"
>>36130428what the only time we have seen or heard of anyone coming back from the dead was as wraths
>>36130456It was also kinda foreshadowed in the first joust, too.
>Man is reputed to kill people he faces in jousts>someone jousts him, gets killedBULLSHIT, GRIMDERP BULLSHIT WAAAA
Times like this I wish I could turn back time and stop this debacle.
>>36130456SO WHY THE FUCK DID YOU LET HER GO?>>36130497He's also known for this from Magic Shop Quest.This was just a colossal asspull and grimderp railroad, you could tell /tg/ would give in to the waifu and let her go, GS knew this, he planned around it.Fuck you german
>>36130514Well it is, and the setting is grimderp as hell, it's honestly just depressing that GS chose to turn this into another Mecha Musume Quest
>>36130521How could we have stopped her?
>>36130497Yeah, seriously. We were given plenty of warning that this guy was somebody who doesn't fuck around and aims to kill.
>>36130521I can only samefag so hard anon, and I couldn't samefag hard enough
> You’re right.You nod. “You’re right.” You lean back, sighing, groaning a little even. “King’s sake, you’re right. But I don’t know if I can be happy, Miss Eckhardt.” You look down at her spilt hot chocolate. “First off, you spilt fifty silvers worth of hot chocolate.” Miss Eckhardt narrows her eyes. “Secondly, Stiina is still dead. I’m nowhere near putting down my debt with Sloane and my mother. For King’s sake, I’m right where I started!”Miss Eckhardt sighs. “We have to face these things as we come.” She goes back to sitting down next to you. “We’re never going to learn how to live if we don’t learn to take these hits life gives us.”You nod. “I suppose.” You hear the soft footsteps and the crunching snow behind you.[1/2]
>>36130521>asspull>grimderp>railroadYou keep using these words. I do not think you know what they mean.
>>36130516Then we find a time travel device and go back and stop Stiina or shank the Baron while he sleeps.But we don't let this shit German pulled stand.>>36130541BY HOLDING ON AND NOT LETTING GOTHAT WAS THE CHOICE YOU RETARD
>>36130521What, nothing bad happened in Magic Shop, now you're just pulling shit out from nowhere.
>>36130565That wouldn't have stopped her.
>>36130560[2/2]“… that was so sad, her death. I can’t believe the Black Baron would just kill her like that!” she says. You look back to see a familiar face. It was that girl from a few weeks back, along with her Wandering Spirit companion. “It’s deplorable!”“Deplorable indeed,” says the Cloak. “Sad way to end our stay in the High City.”“Yes,” says the girl. She snaps her finger, smiling a bit. “But on our way to the Golden Fountain, yes?”Miss Eckhardt blinks. “Marigold?” The girl and the cloak stop to look at her. “It’s nice to see you again.”“Oh, Emily!” Marigold runs over and hugs her quickly. “I saw what happened back there.” She lets go, giving a very motherly concerned look to Marigold. “I hope things aren’t too bad, yeah?”You stand up, looking at her incredulously. “You said the Golden Fountain?”The Cloak nods, looking at you with his ghostly eyes. “That is correct.”“You realize that’s just a myth,” you say. You shake your head, crossing your arms and looking at them like little children. “It doesn’t exist.”The Cloak says, “Not at all.” He reaches into his torn up dark cloak, then pulls out a very wrinkled, and a very faded parchment of paper. “We found this during our journeys. It appears to detail some sort of path to the Golden Fountain itself, nestled within the Aegis Mountains to the East.”Marigold nods. “That’s three weeks travel by horse.”You blink. No. You nod. “And this is the same Golden Fountain that grants any wish you want provided you give up a gold coin.”The Cloak holds up his own gold coin. “Correct.”…You pat your pocket. You pull out a gold coin, Stiina gave it to you a few days ago. You were hoping to slip it back to her after the Joust.> “I’m going with you.”> “Well, good luck.”> Write in
>I warned you all and you ignored it>she's dead nowFeed me your tears, it was within your grasp to stop it, but you didn't, it's your fault she's dead. All your fault
>>36130562you could see it coming from a mile away that this is exactly what he planned, and he let slip hints about it here and there leading up to itthis was full steam ahead choo choo train
>>36130514It's more the question of why, rather than what.Why did German decide to pit the love interest verses a character which was known to kill people in jousting, why was such a character essentially unbeatable, why include such a person in a quest?He hasn't exactly seem much screen time or characterisation, so the logical conclusion, considering he's appeared for this, is exactly what people are accusing GS of, no?
>>36130541>>36130521Well anon voted for it. And I actually voted against it. You can say german is some Machiavellian manipulator but honestly if thats what you believe it just seems sad.And just because everything is not sunshine and rainbows and a clearly forshadowed action has a realistic consequence does make it "grimdark fanwank" as many are crying.
>>36130565if you want to blame anyone you dumbass motherfucker then blame the ones that voted to let her go/the yell for armor people
>>36130581> “I’m going with you.”No choice
>>36130581>“I’m going with you.”
>>36130581> Write in"By hell, high water or the black baron himself I'm going to that fountain."
>>36130581>> “I’m going with you.”>>Write In"Ms Eckhardt. Would you care for one last adventure?"
>>36130581> “I’m going with you.”
>>36130581>we are going to get this shitty wish away the bad endingFuck you
>>36130576That quest is set in this quests universe, so these events happened in magic shop now too, any quest set in the setting is forever marred by this.And now the players know it, any quest in this setting is just going to end up depressing grimderp wankery no matter what we do.
>>36130609Kind of feels cheap considering we never even finished Merrigold's quest
>>36130581Oh gee I wonder what I'll> “I’m going with you.”Fucking duh.And there'd better be a follow up quest, Schteel. I like your work and you should know that nobody likes it when you change the genre at the end of the story.
>>36130521Are you the same guy who is crying about Cat Ears in Assassin School Quest?There's plenty of happy ending / harem quests on /tg/ and ultimately the players decided to let her off herself like that, German made it perfectly clear if we didn't do something she was gonna get fucked up.
>>36130581>> “I’m going with you.”
>>36130655quiet you.Read and Believe.
>>36130581> “I’m going with you.”Fuck yes we're going.Ask Eckhardt if she wants to come, if not, leave her the keys to the stall, and spend one hell of a night with her and tell her we'll be back.
>>36130602I'm not saying that he's "some Machiavellian manipulator" But I will say I felt like their was a "railroad" because I don't feel like that vote to hold on/let go would have made a difference. Where you see the choice to save her/ damn her I only saw the choice to have her die mad at us or have her die not mad at us.
>>36130581> “I’m going with you.”>>36130654Well we can do that now too
>>36130581[x] Smile at Miss Eckhardt
>>36130644This quest had something bad happen in it so the other, prior quest it bad?That is actually just stupid of you. Just dumb.I could go on is what i'm saying.
>>36130644Oh please, stop being such a whiney faggot. That's not how it works at all.
>>36130664Cat eared vampire Layla is best Layla, so no, I not that anon.
>>36130644>a bad thing happened, so now nothing good can ever happen anywhere ever again!
>>36130581>>36130625ThisThere's hope yet
>>36130655The entire quest was obviously meant to be "Life is shit, get used to it."
>>36130581I'll second >>36130625
What other Quests does this tie into?
If it truly exists, we need to wish not that she is resurrected, but rather instead that upon that day she managed to out-joust him, and kill him.
>>36130581>>36130625That's a good one, we should say that, ask her if she wants to come with, if not, spend the night with her and give her the stall to look after>>36130773Then hopefully the follow up where get find the Fountain can be how "Life can be great"
>>36130756>>36130728>>36130721There, we've established that the "grimderp" people are overreacting whiners who got their internet feelings hurt.Lets move on.
>>36130807Or just actually stop her from doing it in the first place
>>36130807Why not just wish for a time roll back and train her, and totally not sabatoge the shit out of the barons stuff, that would be cruel, we totally aren't cruel. Not at all
>>36130799same world as magic shop quest i think, haven't read it yet.
>>36130807Well that doesn't get around her issues with being barren and her stubbornness and depression stemming from it.
>>36130773It was basically a slice of life story until the shocking swerve. You never shocking swerve at the end of the story, if you're gonna do that you do it early to set up the rest of the narrative. That's just how it works.
>>36130872Yep, lategame tonal whiplash and genre change never work out well.
>>36130836I think the main issue her is that since the Magic Shop/Poor Trader has been relatively lighthearted with minor consequences, nobody really took the idea that Stiina might die seriously. I can understand how people feel GS pulled the rug out from under them with this.And I think GS really dropped the ball here, because now he's basically validated the shadowrunners' fears, and it's going to taint decisionmaking in every other quest in this setting from now on.
>>36130844Then we'll have to face the consequences of denying her that.>>36130848Because that would be stupid, and considering how strong he is, he'd likely still best her.>>36130869True, but unless the fountain vanishes or something, then I don't see why a second trip wouldn't be possible
> “I’m going with you.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSGuBNopzBwYou grab the Cloak by his cloak. “I’m going with you. Both of you!”Miss Eckhardt blinks, stepping up to him. “Now, wait a minute, Kasimir.”“Are you sure?” asks the Cloak. “This seems rather sudden, and you do not look rather fit to travel that distance,” says the Cloak.Marigold says, “Well, we’ll be happy to take you on!” You let go of the Cloak, looking at her thankfully. She takes your hand, shaking it. “My name is Marigold Merriweather. You already know my good friend Mister Cloak and my other good friend Miss Emily Eckhardt! We’ll be glad to have you come with us.”Miss Eckhardt sighs. “Kasimir, think about this, you said it yourself, it was a myth. You can’t…” You look at her. You need this. Just the chance. She falters, biting her lip. “K-Kasimir…”“You don’t have to come,” you say. Miss Merriweather and the Cloak look at Miss Eckhardt, expectantly.…“Okay, I’ll go,” says Miss Eckhardt. Miss Merriweather responds with a hearty hug. “Okay, okay! I’ll go! Just this once!” She gently pushes Miss Merriweather away. “But I won’t make a mwish. Kasimir, even if we get to the fountain, even if we’re able to dip the coin in its waters… please don’t just use it on what I think you’re going to use it on. You have to be wise about this.”You nod. “I will. I promise you that.” You pat her on the head, and she blushes intensely, furiously at that. “Miss Merriweather, I’m at your disposal.”The Cloak nods. “Very well. We leave tomorrow.” You all begin walking down the steps, together, as a group. “Mister Kanenas, I expect much from you. I hope things are not as bad for you as they seem.”You shrug. “These are hard times for us. Let’s just keep going as we can.”
>>36130872You are really shit at reading the mood. The quest was blatantly not a sol story.
>>36130926That's it for Poor Trader Quest. Hope you all enjoyed it.Follow at: https://twitter.com/GermanSchteelAsk at: ask.fm/GermanSchteelSee you next time.
>>36130872I never read any GS quests/anything about this setting before, so when this popped up I thought it was a well written quest that didn't follow the normal roll and fight stuff. Cool characters, thought we'd start small and end up big.Then GS says this is the final thread, oh well, maybe he'll timeskip.Then lol let's kill someone outta nowhere.
>>36130908Says anyone who knows why M. Night Shyamalan and Vince Russo are hacks.
>>36130957We all hated it, fuck you
>>36130957Thanks for running schteel.
>>36130916Well, it aint my fault people are apparently completely incapable of seeing foreshadwoing, and cry when there are consequences.I did not see it as light SOL either. We are a womanizing poor merchant who sleeps in a 4x4 stall in winter, and one of the chargen options was to be alcholic
>>36130926We're totally going wish for pile of money
>>36130957Thanks for running, boss.
>>36130957>>36130975I really enjoyed it actually, thanks a bunch Scteel.
>>36130957.....Well, I hope you enjoyed it GS. I don't know about anyone else, but I just feel empty and disappointed.
>>36130957people freak when they lose one of their toys.don't take it to heart.
>>36130992Absolute Power!All hail god-emperor Kasimir Kanenas I!
>>36130972Still seems like its opinions to me.
>>36130926>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSGuBNopzBw>song about hobos luring kids to be molested
>>36130928Yeah it was.>>36130957Well thanks for the wild ride, though I got to say I didn't particularly enjoy this last thread, but I loved the resst, now I hope we see more of Kasimir and Eckhardt on their journey to get Stiina back in a followup quest
>>36130957>those three guys who are always pissed off at the end of the quest no matter what happenedlelGood night m8.
>>36130957Thanks for the quest Schteel, it's been a ride.See you next time
>>36130992If rather wish for life to be less shit, longer summers, shorter winters, better harvests, better economy, the whole shebang. No one deserves the suffering that is our life
>>36130975/tg/ everyone.Cries like little babies when they can't get what they want.
>>36130957thanks for your time. As you can see, some of your characters made a connection to people. >>36130975Again thanks for your time. That ask that you answered about him having previous relationships, really seemed to give Kasimer some depth.
>>36130957Thank you for running.Fuck you for killing Miss.Strafniki.Thank you for giving me some form of hope at the end.
>>36130957Don't take all the insults too personally. It just means you created a character people loved.Thanks for running. I loved this story and I plan to catch up on all of your quests now.
>>36130928Different guy here not even upset at the death, but it blatantly was. Maybe Schteel imagined it'd be about a down on his luck merchant that sifts through garbage and barely makes enough day to day to survive, but he's been way too soft from thread 1.Sex, money, and support literally fall into the MC's lap for doing fuck anything. He gets an easy free ride every thread and dicks around with his waifus.My ass this wasn't a SoL.
>>36130957Thanks for running, Schteel! I hope you're planning on doing something about those 1s. Seriously.>>36131021>Well Guardian QuestYou're the guardian of the well. Probably should have studied harder in guardian school, but them's the breaks.
>>36131036>longer summers, shorter wintersSummer a shit, winter a best
>>36130957What >>36131060 said.So when's the sequel going to happen?
>>36130928I can't think of the term for "story about a guy with a kinda shitty life trying to make it better".
>>36131049Meant to add I really enjoyed the whole story.I am glad to see, you won't sugar coat an ending just because "but come onnnnn.."
>>36131018>>36130972Plus I wouldnt equate the level of ruse here with those two. He actually left more options here and if we weren't busy bitching and fighting we'd talk about the journey to this fountain.And might not of, probably, put GS off of running a follow up.So to everyone bitching about grimderp endingCongratulations, you're the cause.
>>36130992Fuck that noise, we're going to wish to go back in time and that Stiina kills the Baron and she comes out unscathed, and then we're going to build a massive trade company with her and Emily and then we'll be raking in the piles of money.
>>36130989SOL is not restricted to cute girls doing cute things. I don't think you really understand the definition at all.Still, killing off Stiina at the end like that just seems like very lazy writing to me. As if we needed a reason to push Kasimir into adventuring mode. Then again, I'm one of those guys who really dislikes last minute deaths for shock value.
>>36131121It is for german, yurifags are the worst
>>36131112Please, he ran LGA quest. The bickering there was way worse. No way this baby shit'll scare him.
>>36131121 I said light SOL, certainly it could be sol, but if we say that what the hell are quests anyway.I meant the light part mostly. Should have clarified.I think GS meant for this to be more bittersweet, with hope looking towards this fountain of wishes.Kinda blew up on him though.Internet. Yaay.
>>36131036What >>36131113 said.We go back, and either make Stiina win, or we resurrect her, unbarren this time, and put everything we have into building a better life for all three of us.
>>36131113I would have wished for her to win.
>>36131156Good to know, thanks.
>>36131113And sleep every night on a bed of blowjobs.
>>36131181Make Stiina win, then travel with her again to the fountain to unbarren her. Done.
>>36131160Didn't think it was light SOL*
>>36131112>ruseThere was no ruse though.
>your favorite girl doesn't just lose>she diesThis is a suffering I had yet to encounter, I'm getting hammered
>>36131212Oh, I meant that more colloquially, as in the suddenness I suppose.
>>36131182Or that she would win because of her own power. That way, the Baron gets to know that he has no chance of winning but has to go ahead with it anyway or he'll look like a big bitch. Then we'll ask him about it afterwards. "Hey Baron, how does it feel like to be a bitch?"
>>36131212Not a ruse, just differing expectations. Typical QM/reader disconnect. I'm sure things made sense in GS's head, but it certainly didn't translate to the readers in the way he intended.
>>36131182Well that is what I want to wish for, because just stopping her from jousting won't do all that much, she'll find a way around us or the feeling will just fester inside her.So our choices for wishes are, we wish for us and Emily to go back in time and that Stiina win's against the Baron, and survives the joust perfectly fine, or slightly injured from a glancing blow. Or we wish her back then and there at the fountain, which I don't think would work all that well.
>>36131113If she wins she'll go be a lesbian with the princess
>>36131238>>36131231Well I can understand that. I'm new to Quests so maybe I just didn't expect the same things you guys did.
Where was it mentioned that she was barren?
>>36131234Don't leave the fucker alive.>>36131257Then just wish for her to be unseated but unharmed, and for her lance to end up going straight through the Baron's face.
>>36131234But then he'll give the (insert inferior race here) lightning and they'll kill us all and one of them will turn into a demon spawning tree from trying to recreate the first fire and those idiots'll overrun the entire world.
>>36131287in this thread, and in the thread after we both got drunk and took her virginity
>>36131291Then she still beat the baron, dudes dead, he would kinda be disqualified, off to lesbian land for her
>>36131302Then we should wish to have the knowledge of how exactly to wish something ideal for everyone and how to convince someone else to make that exact wish for us and for them to wish it with unerring accuracy on both the letter of the wish and the spirit of the wish. In a timely manner (i.e. less than 1 minute).
>>36131306I thought the MC took Eckhardt's virginity. Hadn't he been sleeping.with Stiina for a while.
>>36131355Both are true.
Wandering Spirit quest is next! I'll see you boys there. Thanks for the amazing quest Schteel
>>36131355I'm pretty sure he took Stiina's as well as taking Emily's>>36131324Then how do you propose we get Stiina back safely?
>>36131368I never read Wandering Spirit, what's it about, is the MC Mister Cloak?
>>36131375Letting her lose but not die, or giving the baron super ultra bad diarrhea the day of the joust. Nigga will no show then the princess will whoop her ass and shit'll be good
>>36131375Well, actually defeating the Baron might give her a reputation that would be dangerous for her, especially since she intends to join the Free Company. It might be smart to wish that she was unharmed in her loss.
>>36131391Yes. Though I have a feeling that the PoV won't switch back to Cloak. I think it is more likely that we may play someone else who is tangentially related to the journey that Kasimir & Co. are taking.
>>36131437>>36131456>Letting her lose but not die> It might be smart to wish that she was unharmed in her loss.That sounds like the safest plan, who knows what resurrection does to a person, but if we go back in time and stop her actually dying and improve the situation then that's a good resultI say we find some kind of crystal or something to record our memories and our journey, and take that back with us and show it to Stiina when we hold her in our arms as we cry our eyes out about how happy we are she's alive after she loses
>>36131554>ever telling herNo, she can happily live thinking nothing ever happened
>>36131571Yeah, telling her sounds like a bad idea, us and Emily can keep it a secret while we make sure we spend every waking moment cherishing the both of them while we improve all our lives.
>resurrection is risky>but time travel is a-okay!I don't know what you people are thinking, you're fucking with the fundamental order of things either way and throwing your lives at, as far as you know, a fool's errand.The best thing to do (and surprise, what Schteel was *hinting at for the last two updates) is accept her death and move on rather then let it consume your life exactly like you're planning to do. This journey can even be a great opportunity for the MC to clear his head and find actually valuable junk to sell.*I don't know if you can call it hinting when a character blatantly says it.
omg i missed this and wtf happened, whywhat about that orphan in thread 1?this is also awesome if somehow all these random mini-quests Schteel does tie together into a megaquest. Inb4 Mecha Musume Rookie falls through the dimensions and lives
So much as I dislike what happened here, I would still like to read more. could someone please give me the names of the other quests that tie into this quest's universe?
>>36132475Magic Shop Quest and uh, Wandering Spirit Quest, I think?
>>36131829>Journey for the MCPerhaps death is merely the beginning of another journey.
this is literally worse then the last thread of attack on pokemon hunter.
>>36132985I'm not even mad that you killed her. I mad that you're making me feel grief. You literally made a quest to make us hurt. Fuck you man, you are the cancer that killed my dog.
I swear when we bring her back we hug her tight and say to her"At the time I loved you enough to let go of the reins. Now I will love you enough to never ever let you go."
>>36133124Let go, fag. She killed herself and was a shit waifu to begin with.
>>36133124you do know that she is likely in the afterlife of her god or goddess right now so by rezing her you would be ripping her from that
>>36131829>The best thing to doYeah nah we're getting Stiina back, and marrying her on the spot, and then getting her infertility issues fixed and making Kanenas and Family Trading Co.
>>36133124yes yes yes
>>36133239And? We let Dina go, and we've never forgiven ourselves for that, we let Stiina go, and we're not likely to ever forgive ourself of that, and now we've got the motivation and chance to change that, to get her back and we're going for it.
>>36131049>really seemed to give Kasimer some depthHow? He's always been a huge manslut.
>>36133124the hope of resurrecting her is the one good thing to come from this thread.Hope for ants.
>>36131230>not having all of your favorite characters die/get shit on throughout the entire story and then die all the fucking timeI miss when I was innocent as you are now.
I can not get the image of her neck snapping out of my head.
>>36133395It's always the neck. First the little lamia girl gets her throat slit and now this.Anons, make sure your waifu's neck is guarded at all times!
>>36133427>those feels when all that work we did to get her decent armor was just rendered useless by QM fiat...Literally nothing we did mattered, GS just rode the train straight on through it all to her death.
>>36133502>all that workWe screamed on a box until a dwarf gave her a chest plate. Which, coincidentally, was not where she was hit.
>>36133502Decent iron means fuckall when your opponent is rockin straight ebony mail, son. Especially when the bitch gets domed.
>>36133524she was given a helmet too. not that it mattered.
>>36133502Cry harder. Keep pretending we were riding the express train to character death when you just made a terrible vote.
>>36133631Anon, I voted to hold her back and not let her go, wouldn't have mattered anyway as GS seemed determined to kill her.
>>36133631How? How would we have stopped her? What would you have said or done to change her mind?
>>36133657Q: could we have saved her by holding onto the reigns? A: sad story about his dog dying and then "Ever since that day, things have been quiet in my house. She'd always wait at the window, waiting for Mom and Dad to come home, or sleeping on the couch. But she'd always bark at people passing by, letting me know I wasn't alone in the house at least. It gave me comfort. I remember last week when I was walking with my brother, and there was another dog just like her that walked by, even sniffed and barked at me. Its owner scolded it with a whisper of, "Angel, no!" And I suppose that's what may have inspired the theme of this last thread.Stiina's death is there because death can come for the people you love in the absolute worst ways and in the most unexpected ways as well. Part of Poor Trader Quest is learning to overcome these kinds of situations, up to and including that. Although one may disagree with how I wrote it and indeed, I don't blame you, you can feel free to criticize all you want, I don't regret writing this. Every day I wonder if I had just been fast enough to get my beloved dog to the hospital, or if I had convinced my parents earlier that something was wrong with her, maybe I could've saved her.That's why I won't say, because life never says that either. You just gotta learn to move on from it. "
>>36133548What she needed was one of those throat to lower half of head guards like what Edward wears in A Knigt's Tale. Can't remember what it was.
>>36133750UHG, still trying to just get that neck snapping out of my head.
>>36133750Nah, that wouldn't have mattered at all because Schteel would have just ignored it and railroaded straight on through.
Well put as this way anons, we are still in Stiina's debt for her giving us that gold coin, and we always ay back our debts.
>>36133966heh, I like that.
>>36133966>we always ay back our debts.By living a good life and never forgetting her. Mark my words, anon, wishing her back to life will not end well. Two different NPCs have warned against it.
>>36134007probably going to end with us getting to the place seeing the well, tossing the coin in and nothing happens. but we can always hope. Even if Hope is a dangerous thing. and just in case it does work we'll have Miss eckhart make a wish first for "The well to grant the spirit of the wish and minus and dick ass repercussions"
>>36133427doesn't the girl in that picture actually survive that attack?
>>361340072? They've not warned directly against resurrecting or saving her, they've warned against us undertaking this jouney as we're constantly reminded of being a frail little twig, and that they don't think we should be trying the journey.They've not said anything about bringing Stiina back, and after all this? Fuck that we're giving it our all short of dying for her to get her back, we're going to find the Golden Fountain, and we're going to bring her back to us safe and sound, alive and in our arms, and then we're never going to let go of her ever again.
>>36134067>Even if Hope is a dangerous thingAs Schteel found out when he said there was hope for thecaravan idea, then he shot that down and killed Stiina in a shitty railroad>probably going to end with us getting to the place seeing the well, tossing the coin in and nothing happensHa, oh man if he did that, that would be a level 9 shitstorm.I like to think he's smarter then that, though this thread alone has shaken my confidence in him, very much doubt I'll read whatever he does next live and just catch it in the archives to see how it goes before I ever give him my trust and hope again after this nightmare.
>>36134071>They've not warned directly against resurrecting or saving hersee >>36130926>even if we’re able to dip the coin in its waters… please don’t just use it on what I think you’re going to use it on. You have to be wise about this.”
>>36134110Then we'll be wise, we'll be anything, but god dammit we're getting Stiina back. We've come to far to not try.We're not going to repeat letting Dina and letting Stiina go again.
>>36134138>Then we'll be wise>but god dammit we're getting Stiina back.Couldn't even make it a sentence. This whole YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU BELIEVE attitude is what got you into this mess to begin with, yet you're still fucking doing it.
>>36134110We don't know what she's thinking. Hell, maybe she thought we where going to wish the Black Baron dead or in horrible pain for the rest of his life.
>>36134207That's some pretty strong delusion.
>>36134243Yes, but Kasimir has already left on this journey, so I got to work with what I can and see how this turns out?
>>36134196It's not about believing, its about not giving up and trying our hardest to get the woman we love back
>>36134207Right, because we weren't JUST talking about wanting her back.>>36134278Because DA POWAH OF TWUE RABU worked out so well when we let go of the reins.
>>36134351>Because DA POWAH OF TWUE RABU worked out so well when we let go of the reins.Exactly, we let her go because we had hope and thought she would be fine, well not me I voted the other way.Now though, we're not going to let go, we're going to claw her back into our arms.
>>36134351please see >>36133741
>>36134409The action may be opposite in presentation but you're still making the same fucking mistake as last time.Porcupine dogs, the fucking lot of you.
>>36134429I direct you to the same post.>You just gotta learn to move on from it>You just gotta learn to move on>move on
>>36134444Working on it Anon, but I'm still grieving the death of someone I knew.
>>36134444We are learning to move on from it.Moving on to the Golden Fountain to undo his blatant grimderp railroad.If he wanted to do Half Life Full Life Consequences Quest, then he should have done that instead of this
>>36134514We can move on from it once we get Stiina back and hold her in our arms
>>36134554Yeah, I'm good with that. lets do that.
