As I went to explore the dungeon and save some of my new classmates I found the Orb of Whispers to be more... Competent? With these new voices at my side I was able to clear many rooms and got quite a bit of loot. >But more importantly, at the end I found where my orb's voices had gone... They had been transferred to another student's orb. Anita is her name.>And she knows my secret.
"So..." Anita says. She sits across from Tali, idly rolling her own ceer artifact across the table. "You're a spy from the other school, hmm?""Shh!" Tali looks around. They're alone. The girl insisted that they eat dinner together to has out some details. "No one is supposed to know that. You can't just say it out loud.""Oh don't be such a worry-wart~ We're completely alone here. I just think it's interesting that you've made it so far. All it would take is someone with any form of true sight and they would see right through your disguise. While it is impressive that you can manifest something as intricate as this all day and night it's still magic and magic can be broken.""Well I didn't think that there was anything that COULD break through it.""Well there's not much. My visor just happens to be one of the few things. If I were anyone else you would have been in some big trouble, mister.""Seriously, you really can't tell anyone.""I won't~ Remember, you can get something I desire as well. And I can help you. We'll be like partners!"Ugh. I do not like this. I do not like this one bit.
>>37646737Better than her ratting you out. do you want to be a meaty salsa dip for their chips?
>>37646737Be nice! Anita is a good girl!
>>37646737..You don't seem to be apologising enough mentally considering that you just realised that you've been cheating on us.In any case, she showed you her tits, she's trustworthy in my book mind.
Discover what she wants.
>>37646737Come on knife ears. It's a solid alliance, and she practically has you blackmailed.
>>37646737You haven't liked any of our plans.Here you have a partner willing to help you out drop right into your lap, and here you are complaining!I mean, come on, you got tits out of the deal, didn't you?
>>37646737Touch orbs. I wanna talk to competent orb bro and tell him he ain't shit just 'cause he has his life together.
>>37646737Well, you either have to roll with the punches and agree to this partnership or find a way to really become a girl so that your cover won't be broken.That last suggestion is not in any way, shape, or form a manifestation of our leftover hurt/spite over your escapades with that other orb.
>>37646666>I found the Orb of Whispers to be more... Competent?Just keep digging that hole. Not like we are on a floating island or anything.That aside. Does she know any methods to enhance the durability of the disguise?
Threadly reminder that the eBook can be found at http://pastebin.com/kbGzcbDb
>>37646825>find a way to really become a girl so that your cover won't be broken....Yes.
>>37646824This.>>37646737Let us talk to competent orb bro. Get his (their?) thoughts on the matter.And establish our place as superior orb.
>>37646737She's dangerous and untrustworthy, but we have no means to dispose of her. We'll have to cooperate for now.
>>37646833I'm just saying that while polymorph spells that do that don't have many practical uses, this is probably one instance where you'd have to seriously consider doing that.
>>37646863I'm agreeing with you.
>>37646737This is an opportunity for us, Tali. She's got talents, and she's willing to work with us. We scrath her back, she scratches our back.More importantly, tell us about the loot you got.
>>37646666>I found the Orb of Whispers to be more... Competent?We try Tali we're just trying to help you. Well fuck you too Tali from now on I'll just yell incoherently into your fucking brain
>>37646737You can always just betray her later.
>>37646900>from now on I'll just yell incoherently into your fucking brainBusiness as usual then?
>>37646833>>37646863>Tali becomes a girl for realOH YES
>>37646666...In what way? What did the other orb actually act like, specifically? What were the rooms that it helped you with? Did it say anything else?
>>37646737Tali, we can read your journal entries, too.I'm sorely tempted to get angry and call you a lot of things, but we've been called upon to help you through thick and thin, and we're going to continue doing that despite any irreverence you might have for our appointed duty.
>>37646936No instead of screaming about tits we'll scream about all the terrible things we'll do to his Anus and it still won't be rape, stupid knife-ears
>>37646737What happened to your bling?Also, could you make us and the red orb touch a bit?
what if red orb is a parallel quest Larro is running elsewhere
>>37646737Other orb is more competent. We are more fun at parties.Choose wisely.
>>37647012In a bizarro /tg/ where people are respectful and give decent advice to people who need it?
>>37647018>Other orb is more competent.In some situations.Our insanity might actually gave him an edge when common sense doesn't work.
>>37647054That's a lie told to make you feel better.
>>37647018Allegedly. The only sign that we've seen of said competence is that Tali went through a path with a lot of treasure on it. We handled our own challenges quite well, despite our new charge picking the worst possible suggestions at the most crucial times.
>>37647018> tali's fw he chooses the blue orb over red.> "He chose... poorly."
>>37647062We got past the button, the red orb didn't.
Guys, please. I'm seriously super super sorry. I didn't mean to cheat on you or anything. You'll still my best friends and allies in this school.I need you.So we'll just pretend that never happened, okay?And please don't read my journal. It's private.>>37646793>>37646812Ugh... I think I've seen more breasts this week than I have my entire life. This is not a good work environment...>>37646884>>37646967Most of the loot I got was taken by the club and sold for funds. I got 100 Alm out of the deal which is not bad at all. I also got to keep the stuff. It's a pretty neat artifact with an usual mana crystal in the center. So long as I cast with it the amount of mana I spend is decreased by quite a bit.>>37646955It tended to just sort of tell me exactly what I needed to do to achieve optimal results.>>37646862>>37646831>>37646809I know she wants artifacts. The only ones I have right now are you guys and my staff so I probably don't have anything she would need.But yeah... I guess we're working together for now, like it or not."Do you mind if I touch my orb to yours for a bit?""Ah, no. I kinda like this one the way it is. Maybe if they swap again.">>37646825Yeah, nah.. Conversion magic is not something I really want to mess around with. At least not when it deals with my own body."Soooo" Anita says. "What's your game plan? I mean, what do you do to find out these secrets and get the details on these super awesome artifacts?"
>>37647108We hear your thoughts, mate. We hear your journal as you write it
>>37647108A... Plan?Can you repeat the question?
>>37647108>don't read my journal. It's private.WE ARE YOUR THOUGHTS, TALIWE KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU
>>37647108>"Soooo" Anita says. "What's your game plan? I mean, what do you do to find out these secrets and get the details on these super awesome artifacts?"Our secret plan is to wander around incoherently until we stumble on something. It has served us well so far.
>>37647054>In some situations.Probably has some highly advanced magical filter. It filters out the less sane choices we offer.Probably like the built in moderation. The problem with that is you never know when it will skip some needed info.We give him pure unfiltered information.He just has to be man enough to filter it himself and smart enough to choose wisely.
>>37647108Mention to her that if we can figure out how to tame a demon we could get the most powerful artifact in the school
>>37647108Tali stop thinking about boobs. (Now you can't stop thinking about them.Tell her we plan to get friendly with the people in the academy and try to get to secrets that way. We've already joined a few clubs for that purpose.
>>37647108>It tended to just sort of tell me exactly what I needed to do to achieve optimal results.Yeah, boring.
>>37647108>"Soooo" Anita says. "What's your game plan? I mean, what do you do to find out these secrets and get the details on these super awesome artifacts?"...Well if you want to not work with her you could throw your morals away for an hour or two and find a way to give her Vasli's book.
>>37647108>And please don't read my journal. It's private.[laughing voices]>So we'll just pretend that never happened, okay?[continued laughter]In any case, accept her plan. Ask details, though.SERIOUSLY. ASK ABOUT DETAILS.
>>37647108Talk to people. Gain their trust. Explore. Point out weird shit to your new friends, and they will just tell you the secrets.Also, you can exchange favors for secrets, like you did with Vaisi.
>>37647108It's actually really simple.We're already in the science club. We can get our hands on all the blueprints and runes there.Now, you know that each club has to handle their own funding. That's where the anime club comes in. We'll turn it into a small place where people can come in to relax, share secrets, and buy school supplies. Eventually we upgrade our own funding to cover all the clubs.That way, we get our hands on all the money that goes through the school. If anyone needs something, they go through us - be they students or teachers. And they'll need to report everything to us.Basically, we control the money, we control everything. Meaning that people will give us their secrets and artifacts willingly in exchange for some other favor.
>>37647108Tell her to touch her orb to sempeye. He's a cool artifact and he might enjoy the company, even if it is skank orb.
>>37647154>she's asking us for a planWell fuck.
>>37647108>And please don't read my journal. It's private.Our purpose is to aid you. We have to understand how you think in order to do that.>Most of the loot I got was taken by the club and sold for funds.We're not part of the dungeoneering club, are we? Do they take artifacts from every student who explores the dungeons?>It tended to just sort of tell me exactly what I needed to do to achieve optimal results.So it did nothing but provide information? Did it display any self-awareness? Did it find any of the puzzles difficult, or work through the solution before providing you with an answer?
>>37647108>It tended to just sort of tell me exactly what I needed to do to achieve optimal results.Ah so it's the tiny but generally above average think thank while we have taken the infinite number of monkeys and typewriters apporch.We'll give you Shakespeare one of these days TaliAs for an actual plans step one is to entrench ourselves, make friends and allies then we can start stealing with impunity.Also tell there's a secret passage in the girls Bath we could tell her about, but it needs an artifact Key.
>>37647245Lets start calling her a she.Red is totally a slutty female orb color.
>>37647108>"What's your game plan?...Get really good at shampooing hair. After that everything should just fall into place.
>>37647280What should her name be?Let's see... red orb... Rosa?Any better ideas?
>>37647108>asking us for details on our plansThat is suspicious info-digging. I'm not sure we can trust her with too much information. If she decides to sell us out at some point, it'll be worse for us if she explains to the teachers why our behavior is "suspicious".
>>37647309Rosa is fine
>>37647108Yo, lady, Tali got told to come here illusioned to look like a girl and to listen to us.Do we look like an orb with a plan to you?Also red orb is a slut.
>>37647108And yet we solved her a puzzle that had her stuck for over five hours in like, two minutes.
>>37647309Anita's little helper. Since we're a blue Christmas ball.Rosa's fine.
>>37647108>"Soooo" Anita says. "What's your game plan?Uhh, not die and be nice to people? And not go crazy. That's a biggie.
>>37647350>Anita's little helperThen should we call it MacIntosh?
>>37647345>And yet we solved her a puzzle that had her stuck for over five hours in like, two minutes.So red is the practical everyday orb we are the adventure/murderhobo/dungeneer editionI can dig it
>>37647108You're funny kid. Really. No such thing as too much boobs. Well okay there IS but I doubt you're going to randomly find an artifact left by some genuine pervert that enlarges said boobs.MOVING ON Plans.. Uhh. well shit we didn't think that far ahead did we? Wait wait wait waiiiiit why the hell's she digging this deep? Blabbermouth kinda spilt almost damn near everything already. He literally would NOT shutup. Ever. Nah lets not clue her in to anything clever yet.I'll tell you HER plan though. she's a full blown raven kleptomaniac who wants to steal anything not nailed down if its got magic in it. Seriously if you had magic underpants she'd forcefully strip you! Hmmm maybe thats one way to get you laid...
>>37647108Our game plan so far has just been to make friends and talk to them to see what kind of people they are and what kind of things they do. Also we go looking for neat things in the corridors. Like that crazy girl with no arms who's been locked up.
>>37647373Nah, the red orb spits out intelligent advice, we can't name it that.
>>37647383It makes sense if you think about it. The Red Pill lets you go about your everyday life as if nothing bad is happening, but the Blue Pill lets you see just how deep the rabbit hole goes.And lemme tell you Tali, we go in deep and hard.>>37647229This is a good plan. Anything that lets us become Lords of Capital is the way to go.
>>37647397So our plan is to get Tali to wear magic underpants?Where do we get the underpants?
>>37647456Fuwa has artifact panties called "The little death"
>>37647431What this guy said.
>>37647456Didn't someone at the academy have those? Artifact magic undies?
>>37647456Nightly panty raids obviously. We steal them before Anita can.
>>37647456Fuwa has magic underpantsAnyway Tali you are going to need to kill Anita, she knows too much and cannot be trusted. Make it look like an accident.
>>37647506>>37647514>>37647478So while Tali is sleeping... we take over his body and go on a panty raid?Sounds good to me.
>>37647514Maybe we can eat her orb.I distinctly remember being able to eat other advice giving orbs in a world filled with magic and gross monsters with all too many teeth once upon a time.
>>37647514>Kill AnitaHAHAHA YOU THINK HE HAS THE STONES FOR THAT?! YOU ARE FUNNY GOOD VOICE!But seriously that reminds me. If you get tangled up with her in a fight she's got some weird ass scarf of a bajillion respawns. Something about each time she dies like an idoit a thread ravels off it to restore her life...Oh yeah last time she died we were there for it. She got molested by tentacle monsters. Painfully. The others kinda...uh. took notes on the things technique. they're kinky like that.
>>37647108Start off with a simple answer, like >>37647414If she's not satisfied with that, then ask for some info on her plans in exchange. Trade info for info. Intelligence is vital in the spy business.
>>37647108Enough with the terrible plans! Let's give you something decent."Paperwork, doing a lot of listening, walking and talking to people. Normal, boring research. It really isn't that difficult. It's hard to create a plan when you don't have any access to information... which is sort of what this is."Pretend to fumble a lie. "It's certainly not by using super-powerful spying magic" then laugh nervously
Okay! I get it! You guys read my thoughts! No secrets! But that's exactly why we need to work together. We're connected almost intimately. We need to make this work."My plan..? My plan is...>>37647229>>37647397>>37647602"My plans mostly involve wandering around, making friends and connections, and exploring the place. It's worked pretty well so far. But what about you? What's your plan?""Well, I decided to join the Dungeon Diving Club to get artifacts, of course. It seemed like the most obvious way to get what I wanted. Also I brought along that whip I lent you.>She takes it from Tali and holds it up."This thing is an artifact hunter's dream. It can sense artifacts nearby and their relative power. Also, if they're sentient, it can force them into submission. Yours seems to be rather resistant to it, though. In fact yours might be the one I was trying to call to a few nights ago. If so you have a pretty neat artifact hanging around your neck. Very stubborn.""Uhm, thanks. So you use that to find artifacts? And hope to come across them at the dungeon?""Yep! But that's why I wanna work with you. You can lead me to artifacts and I have a bunch of stuff that might help you! Like that whip. You mentioned you needed it, right? Well you can borrow it for as long as you need. In return if you come across something cool send it my way. Sounds fair, right?"
>>37647664>SubmissionTO THE BOOOOOOK
>>37647108So do you want to be the one to admit that you had no plan and that we're more focused on getting you laid and building ourselves an artifact harem or do you want to let us tell her?
>>37647664Ahaha~ Red orb is trembling at the whip. It must be weak compared to us.
>>37647664Take that whip, Tali. Say you'll give her artifacts, but in reality, you'll give her all the shitty ones.Also, read that Rena book when you get the chance.
>>37647664Cast this spell, Tali. Right now.
>>37647664Tali, tell her to tell the red orb that the blue orb says it's a pussy.
>>37647728>doesn't even have anything as a fuel runeHahaha, look at this novice.
>>37647664She can't have the thing we need the whip for. Sorry, owner-of-skank-orb, but we like Tali being not dead. Also I'm sure you also would prefer to not have a bajillion threads ripped out of your bullshit scarf.So, like, yeah. We'll send you after the next few.
>>37647717>It must be weak compared to us.It's just not as kinky.
>>37647664TOUCH US TO THE WHIP.DOMINATE THE WHIP.I just wanna see what happens, mostly.
>>37647664"Right, but do you plan to take ALL the artifacts in this relationship? You've already demonstrated an issue with controlling... uh, difficult ones. I am actually worried with your amount of experience you had trouble with my orb.""It may also be helpful to pool our knowledge to avoid trapfalls." C'mon sucker her into giving you more runes.>>37647695>vibrating red orb'ssh baby it's okay.'
>>37647664Use the whip to force the book that made Vaisi crazy into submission.
>>37647664Ah, the great pussywhip.Okay, give her a free tip as a sign of good will: some of the artifacts can corrupt their owners. One of them is in the school, and its user is extremely dangerous and gorgeous. Just so we don't end up having to deal with two psychos later on.
>>37647664That sounds... reasonable.There's no way we'll be giving her Vaisi's book though.And guys, shouldn't we plan for the eventuality that Anita might betray us? It might happen that an artifact she really wants falls to our lap.
>>37647664Okay, we'll share some magic items with her if they're safe to use, but ancient artifacts can get pretty dangerous. Some of them can damage the user's mind.On another note, that red orb does not look like a happy orb. I think it's been traumatized by something. We should be careful with this whip....Maybe it'll react to Ninety-Nine Copper? We don't really know what happened to make her like that.
>>37647832>And guys, shouldn't we plan for the eventuality that Anita might betray us? It might happen that an artifact she really wants falls to our lap.Better start crafting a murder spell that rapid-fire murders over and over and over.
>>37647832>shouldn't we plan for the eventuality that Anita might betray us?Do we look like we know what we're doing?
>>37647813I would bet that the book is far stronger than that whip. Maybe if we could enhance artifacts, probably with another artifact.Hey Tali, ask her if she has ever heard of an artifact that will enhance other artifacts.
>>37647664Tali tell Red to stop being a bitch. That whip doesn't even look scary. I could choke it to death with my string.Bitch-ass whip. Punk-ass bitch whip bitch. What you gonna do?Yeah. That's what I thought. Bitch-ass whip nigga bitch.Call it a bitch, Tali.
>>37647664The part she doesn't mention is she already has a small arsenal of artifacts some of which are bullshit-tier in power. like that fucking scarf of infinite lives. She likes hogging the good stuff.Its a nice offer Tali. just remember she'll leave you for dead in a heartbeat, this is mostly a working relationship and the fact she has you over the barrel. I'd say sorry for Blabbermouth but he's too busy giggling and muffling it.That whips useful but judging from how the redball is acting it seems to...maybe suppress them? Who knows maybe the redballs even more useful if she bothered learning to work with it.Just remember. KAW-KAW! She's more freaking klepto about ancient artifacts then a Blood Raven! Theres also one she really REALLY wants bad. Something about being insanely powerful, possibly world go boom levels of power?That...might not be a good thing to let her have actually.
>>37647664>come across something cool send it my wayRemember Tali only send her Ice related artifacts
Okay, before we do anything. Can we get the golem-girl to take a look at that whip?Maybe we can manufacture our own, even stronger one. Then when Anita does turn on us, we can just whip it out and take over her artifacts in surprise.>>37647910We need a gold chain.
>>37647664Say yes for now but secretly work towards framing Anita as a male spy herself.Step one will be to steal the red orb so that she can't hax her way out of it.Step two will be to lurk around and use illusions to make scary Thorn class elf girl think that Anita has a dick.
>>37647664Psychology voice is sad he is late. But blizzard conditions are terrible. I am happy to see the other voices are keeping with making friends though.Also, A crack dat a-whip
>>37647910Down boy down! Even if we're immune to the thing I don't like mocking it incase the things self aware or something and takes it as a challenge and fucks with us the entire time.Like it has a chance though. Punks about as forceful as you are Tali!
>>37647664Psssst Hey Tali. I just wanted to say I know you are trying your hardest and you are doing a good job, you may be inexperienced but you're already getting the hang of it. Keep trying little buddy
>>37648009Well thank you.>>37647910Please don't bully..."Right, but do you plan to take ALL the artifacts in this relationship? You've already demonstrated an issue with controlling... uh, difficult ones. I am actually worried with your amount of experience you had trouble with my orb.""I'll admit I'm not the most experienced artifact hunter but... I can handle them well enough. Also the artifacts you currently have aren't that interesting to me right now so you're perfectly safe!""Thanks, I guess? It may also be helpful to pool our knowledge to avoid trapfalls.""Like what?""Well I'll tell you what I know about artifacts. Like did you know that certain really powerful artifacts can corrupt the user's mind? The book I want to get does that. It's why I really can't give it to you.""Ah, I see. Hmm... With the whip I never really had to worry about that...""I didn't either, until recently. Now if you wanna help perhaps you can give me a few runes? My knowledge of them is a bit lacking. Also! If you know anything about artifact enhancing artifacts I'd love to hear about it.""All I know is that such things are really really rare. Now, let me see your spellbook.">Tali hands over his book. Anita updates his list of runes."There you go~" She says as she hands back the book. "See? We got a nice thing going on here.">A bell rings. Dinner is over and free period has begun.Should I stay with Anita? Or go do something else?
>>37648037VAISITAME THAT BOOKALSO THAT TONGUE
>>37648012If only we had teeth, we could have a gold grill too.
>>3764803799c Make sure she is taking hr mandate breaks.Also how old was she again? Did we make sure her breaks are in compliance with all appropriate age laws?
>>37648037Stick with her a bit.Ask her about ways to free someone from an artifact's control.
>>37648037Remind yourself to check up on those runes if you see any of them in a book or something later. She might be trying to subtly sabotage us by mislabeling a rune or two in case we use them against her. That card game might help.
>>37648037Time to fulfill your destiny, Tali. Tame the book!
>>37648037Stay with her and talk shop. What has she seen around the school? What are some interesting artifacts she already knows about that are out of her reach?
>>37648037OOoooo thats alot of rune magic I can see this being usefu- THERES A RUNE FOR ICE CREAM!?! FUCK YES! Oh we have GOTTA get you to make a banana split sometime kid! Somebodys gotta culture you!As for now...might be worth tailing her unless you have something important to do you decided on WITHOUT US since we got ball swapped and shit. Actually thats important. How the FUCK DID WE GET SWAPPED?
>>37648133>How the FUCK DID WE GET SWAPPED?Probably a magical accident.
>>37648037Go find a teacher. Tell them your plan on getting the book from Vaisi. You need backup on this!
>>37648156Do the teachers know about her magical whip?
>>37648037Stick with her, get to know her better.Maybe offer to introduce her to Maolin? She's our artifact expert, and we could use a hand in dealing with future artifacts and making ones. Maybe she can make new ones based on the ones we already have?>>37648151Maybe we should dig into that. Go to the science lab, see what's going on there. If something strange did happen that caused us to switch artifact-bodies, who knows what else.Maybe the Book is in something else now as well?
>>37648012800 hours in MS paint
>>37648037Eggscellent. Lay on the compliment and a smile along with starting to see the benefits of this working relationship.Right now... I think it would actually be a TERRIBLE idea to tackle the book solo with minimal preparation. Talk to her that maybe she should think about that; the whip might not be able to overpower everything.Ask her if there's a particular artifact around she's been eyeballing and help her with that Like fuwa's panties
>>37648037Here's a small thing I whipped up, could you run it by the girl who wouldn't mind helping you with runes?The purpose of it is to provide you with a small amount of energy when in sunlight specifically, it should alleviate the burden of the permanent glamour slightly. The main downside is that it'd dim sunlight around you slightly. Sources of light not from the sun should be ignored.Alternatively you can transfer it to a managem instead.I'm not sure if the last "transfer to caster" is required, but better safe than sorry. Could even make it gentle transfer instead.I guess the staff might also alleviate some of the mana cost to upkeep your glamour?
>>37648213You asshole.Using the JPEG format for that kind of picture is a crime. All those fucking artifacts.
>>37648037You have had a long day. Perhaps go and spend the rest of it relaxing with your Petal friends?
>>37648256>All those fucking artifacts.Have we discovered our reproductive cycle?
>>37648238Wow a voice who is not an idiot with spell-craft
>>37648256>All those fucking artifacts.Isn't that the point?
>>37648213Those are not the jpg artifacts we're looking for.
>>37648238This guy makes it look like he knows what he's talking about! Do this!
>>37648213Two minutes on ancient website
>>37648238Yeah, this other voice is using fancy words, listen to him.
>>37648238m8, you can't put two runes in one circleThat whole thing is broken.
>>37648238You sound like a red orb voice. I'm watching you.
>>37648037Tali you should go find an artifact called The Rod of Lordly Might for Anita. That should keep her... busy while we go about our business.
>>37648354You can, look at the rune page.
>>37648368With our luck, Tali would find The Rod of Lordly Moe.
>>37648358Yeah, he's obviously a spy.I fixed it before the foul sabotage could happen.
>>37648354If you were to read Tali's spell guide, you'd notice that it's one of the methods of binding runes. It saves space and ink as well.>>37648358I am only reasonable in the face of !!SCIENCE!!, otherwise I'm as much of a tease as the rest of you.
>>37648358>there are still red orb voices here
>>37647957Yes. Get us a gold chain. We bling now.
>>37648256>>3764833110000 Hours MS Paint Your pain feeds my Lyfe [/spoilers]
>>37648404Perfect we can drive them insane then send them back
>>37648389Convert clothes to alcohol, however you may wish to reformat it if you seek to use my solar-powered setup.Additionally, I would recommend removing "small" from AoE.
>>37648389Furthermore, I won't recommend the square linking, you'd be better off pairing them off.
>>37648471I dont remember adding small. I think it was AoE
>>37648418We'll make Tali the most fabulous elf there is.
>>37648499My own solar powered formula has small in both the AoE and the steal. I'd wager you don't care much for caution in your alcohol-fueled endeavours.
Tali, Tali we need to rob the library for more runes.We need more runes.Also here are a bunch of spells for you, but run the comfy one by someone experienced before trying to cast it because I'm uncertain whether Joy is a dangerous rune to use.
>>37648544But that's AoE in the gathering of energy, not in the application of clothes to booze.
>>37648615Make a steal icecream spell
>>37648629Exactly, it'd speed up with small was removed from the energy gathering equation.Although I'd still reformat it to a parallel mostly self-sustaining spell through priorities, and possibly some looping around for active self-triggering.
>>37648615Why do they use gold as a trigger?
>>37647728Are we trying to make a clothing conversion spell here? I could go write one. It could be useful to get Lily off our backs if we run into her while we're somewhere we are not supposed to be, since being invisible doesn't really work on her.
>>37648238I'll definitely have someone way better at spellcrafting than me check this out.>>37648389And this one..?>>37648438>>37648331>>37648213>>37648574What in the world..?Anyway, I think I'll hold off on that book just for a bit. I need more than an hour of planning before I attempt to take on an artifact that forced her to kill people... What if it latches onto me or something?>>37648084"Hey, so I need to return something to a classmate. She's an expert in making golems and stuff so maybe you can join me?""Sure~">The two stand up and walk back to the school. A few members of Thorn spot Tali as he walks down the corridor and wave at him. It's clear his bravery has earned him a bit of a standing in the class."So if an artifact does take over someone what would be the best way to fix them?""Well... On their own most artifacts are harmless. If you can just remove the person from the artifact they should be out of the item's control. How well they'll do after they're freed, though..." She shrugs."I see... So I need some sort of containment.""Anything will do so long as the artifact isn't crazy powerful and capable of moving on it's own.""Have you noticed any artifacts like that?""I think the only artifact I've seen that's even somewhat capable of movement is The Sorter.">>37648128"Are there any other artifacts that you've noticed around? Any that you're interested in?""Oh, there's a bunch! This Aelor has a gourd that has some pretty neat conversion magic, an that elf fuwa is actually holding quite a few herself. There's this one I want that's supposed to be... Well, it's super comfy. If you could ever get them for me I'd love you forever!""I'll... See.">Tali opens the door to the Science Club/Root Class room. Maolin is inside, a massive ceramic fist over her normal arm."Hello, Tali.">Anita gasps.1/2
>>37648037I am all for staying with Anita. Tell her your orb informed you despite being inexperienced she's amassed a truly impressive collection. Say that as the compliment.
>>37648765She's gonna get lewd on that robutt, isn't she?
>>37648814Given that she's here to collect artifacts for a poorly-developed conquest scheme, she's likely to try and take and/or dominate the robutt. It's lucky we're holding the whip in this scenario.
>>37648845I'm not sure if Maolin counts as an artifact. Although she's certainly magical, if you know what I mean.
>>37648765Look like Anita is totally /u/ for Maolin
>>37648890I'd say /g/ if anything.
>>37648845Pretty sure Maolin does count as one, which is why she's researching them so hard.>It's lucky we're holding the whip in this scenario.Turns out the whip is just an ancient golem sex toy
"Is... Is that The Price of Life..?" Anita says, practically panting as she moves closer to Maolin."I do have that within me." Maolina says. "It is my phylactery.""I... I see. That's really cool... Can I... Can I see it? Please?""No.""Come on~ I just wanna look at it~ The things that artifact can do...">Anita moves closer."Tali." Maolin says. "If your friend gets closer I will punch her in the stomach. I'm not sure how much damage this will cause.""Anita, you really shouldn't...""I just want one little look..." Anita insists "Just one..."She's moving closer...
>>37648641Here, Steal Ice Cream.It pretty much does the exact same thing as steal target, though, just more specific.
Maybe Anita can see this.
>>37648939Grab anita's boobs and or ears.Stop her.
>>37648939Touch us to her body.BAD ANITA! BAD! GO SIT IN THE CORNER!
>>37648939>Anita wants to get inside MaolinL-lewd
>>37648939Don't worry, her scarf thing will just give her another life. Let her do it, Tali. You know you want to see it.
>>37648939fuckin stop her tali dont be a puss
>>37648939Show her your boobs!
>>37648939Anita can rez. Lets see how this plays out.
>>37648939Target violent rend clothes, fuel self(energy). Trigger invoke.I assume you have the staff with you?
>>37648939Uh, pull Anita back. She's being creepy and making our friend uncomfortable.
>>37648939She still has 999 more lives left in reserve.
>>37648939>>37648953>Grab anita's boobs and or ears.do it
>>37648953>earsThat's her respawn ribbon.
>>37648939Reach up behind her and grab her by the ears. "Anita. Personal space."Rub the ears slowly.
>>37648939Restrain her. Idly ask what it can do that could make Anita want it so badly.
>>37648939Tell her that it's not nice to touch people without their permission. If she doesn't listen, grab her by the scarf and pull her away.
>>37648939Back, Anita! Back!
>>37648975Ah sorry, that should be violent rend (target clothes).
>>37648939Let her get punched
Anita, come on, restrain yourself, you just met the girl and you're asking to see her phylactery!Tali, we need to get you on a workout regimen of some kind. Maybe you should join the Dungeon Diving club with Anita? They seem to have a few members who could help you with that, and I gave you a protective spell up there that could help a lot with the whole...dangerous dungeons thing.
>>37648939Call Anita a pervert for wanting to see a golem's intimates even though they're not even dating yet.
>>37649049>Tali, we need to get you on a workout regimen of some kind.100 push ups100 sit ups100 squatsrun 10 milesEvery single day
>>37648939QUICK! Steal her artifacts while she's distracted!If you can nick her visor, then you can invisible your way away and she can't do shit!
>>37648939Use the whip, Tali!
>>37649020But the android is the one that's going to be doing the fisting.
>>37648939Quick! Use the comfy spell to make everyone comfy!
>>37649138True, but how I'd that better?
>>37648939Touch her with the orb.We'll deliver a burst of mental static into her brain like a taser. It should snap her out of it.
>>37648939TALI! I just realized. If we can borrow Anita's ribbon or get one like it, we could make 98 Ice Creams!
>>37649174They can spin their wrists indefinitely and vibrate?
>>37649191Holy shit, anon, you're a genius.Tali, do this.
>>37649174> I'disDamn phone spellcheck
>>37649212Ah... hmm. Well as long as they use the right settings and safety limiters I guess.
>>37649250She also has like a thousandish respawns so they can afford to get kinky.
>Tali reaches forward and grabs Anita's ear. He pulls her back as she lets out a yelp of pain."You're making Maolin uncomfortable.""Ow ow ow ow..." Anita tries to pull away before she finally relaxes. "Okay... I'm calm.">He lets go of her. She still seems on edge but she doesn't move towards Maolin."So, Maolin." Tali says. "As you can see, Anita here loves artifacts. You make them. I thought maybe you two could talk about them? Maybe work on some together? There are artifacts we may not know the full capabilities of.""I am not really an expert," Maolin says, "But I can be of service. After all, you did help me. Speaking of which, may I have my scanner back?" Tali hands back the scanner. "Thank you. Yes, if there's anything you wish to know about the nature of an artifact I will look into it for you. 10 Alm for each reading, though. I need to make a living.">Tali considers the artifacts he and Anita have on hand. Is there anything he needs to find out more about right now?
>>37649346Find out if the red orb really is a little bitch
>>37649346You should totally let Maolin examine us.
>>37649346Find out more about US! Also, the whip. Also the red orb.
>>37649346The whip.Then maybe the orbs next.
>>37649346Have Maolin examine us and red orb.Hopefully we touch the red orb while this happens.
>>37649346Do you really?You dont even eat. Or sleep. You could literally "make a living" from the inside of a shipping crate, because it constitutes literally nothing other than living.
>>37649346Let her check out the whip. We need to make sure it is of use against Vaisi's book.
>>37649346I'd let Maolin inspect me, if you know what I mean.
>>37649346Ask about us. Anita can ask about the red one. I'm guessing that the two orbs are part of the same set. Law and Chaos. Just like the god thing that made the Ceer, right?And maybe ask Maolin if she knows how to deal with artifacts that corrupt their users and what's the best way to handle them.
>>37649391Don't be rude! She probably has maintenance needs of some kind!Tali, use invisibility to rob the library's forbidden secret knowledge section. You know it has to have one. This is a magic school.
>>37649346Us and the whip.
>>37649346Do you even have any Alm, you elf beggar?
>>37649439He would, from all the artifacts the dungeoneering club took.
>>37649439He got a hundred for all those artifacts he found in the dungeon.He's been ripped off, but whatever. Better than being poor.
>>37649456Oh yes, totally this.
>>37649346The whip, the whip!Also Womb Dagger.
>>37649346Ask her what that spell is, those red flames look wicked cool.
>>37649391She still has a broken face, so she's probably poor as shit.
So would this spell allow us to steal light and warmth from an area of effect and use them to charge the mana gem, or would it just make the mana gem glow and get warm?
"Uhm... I do have a few. Anita, can I see your orb?">Anita hesitates but relinquishes the orb to Tali. He hands that, the whip, and his own orb to Maolin.>She also takes 30 Alm.>First she examines the whip.>She pulls off her chest plate and grabs a nearby wire. She attaches one part of it to the whip and another she places deep inside of her chest. She stays still but Tali can hear soft murmuring coming from behind her mask.>She pulls out the wire."This artifact is Ceer Level. It is designed to subjugate and control sentient artifacts should they get out of control. It requires someone wielding another sentient artifact that is around the same level as the one that the wielder is attempting to subjugate. It is worth approximately 1000 Alm.">She takes Tali's orb and connects with it as well."This is... Is.... Is.... Is....""Maolin..?""Is... Is beyond you, elf. Do not peer further."1/2
>>37649676Ey bb u wan sum fuk?
>>37649623May want to convert the stolen light and warmth to energy or self(fuel)?
>>37649676Maolin is calling you dumb, Tali.
>>37649676Well that's reassuring... oh wait.
>>37649623What's with the small-self (fuel) rune? Everything else seems okay.
>>37649676>Maolin's head droops and clay leaks out of her eye holes. Cracks form all along her ceramic body as energy courses through her."Maolin!">The table holding up the orb stops functioning. The orb drops to the ground and rolls away.
>>37649676Who are you?Are you the same person we talked to when we looked at the orb with that artifact? Who claimed that they manipulated everything for a thousand years?What do you want?
>>37649711Huh.Guys, which one of you fucked with her braincase.
>>37649711I think... we may have broken her. Quick, hide the pieces!
>>37649711Whoa, we didn't mean to do that.
>>37649711Ah crap, where's the undo button?She should be hardier than that though.
>>37649711Cast a heal spell on her! She's awesome and has helped us!
>>37649711Oh shit! We accidentally the sexy golem!
I feel like I should zalgotext in this situation but I cba to do it.Someone else do the spooky words.
>>37649711welp.Looks like Anita is getting that artifact out of her after all!
>>37649711On the up-side, this means we can get our 30 alm back!
>>37649711FUCKWE KILLED HERWHYNEVER AGAIN
>>37649711Yeah, pure unrestrained chaos will do that to you
>>37649711Quick, Tali! Reload! RELOAD FROM LAST SAVE!
>>37649711Does this count as ahegao?
>>37649676>It requires someone wielding another sentient artifact that is around the same level as the one that the wielder is attempting to subjugate.I guess that explains why the whip doesn't work on us.The red orb is too much of a bitch to take us on.
>>37649711Haha, either the Ceer or a god is messing with us. But you'll note they're too cowardly to listen to us. Pussies.
>>37649676>"Is... Is beyond you, elf. Do not peer further."There is no need to be afraid....Embrace us... Become one with infinity....
This may be a warning to stop trying to find out what we actually are. I say fuck that, full steam ahead.
>>37649711[void damage]Wonder if we can do spells/commands.
>>37649711What the fuck are we?
>>37649711We're the strongest!
"I'm sorry!!!">Tali grabs the orb.What do I dooooooo!?>>37649748What!?>>37649766Real life doesn't have an undo!"Tali!" Anita shouts. "You gotta slap her phylactery!""W-what!?""It's the only way to reboot her!""What's a phylactery!?""It's a little tube thing! It should be somewhere inside of her! Quick!"AAaaaaaah! S-should I!? Can't Anita do it!?
>>37649833>>37649837Seriously. If people keep dying when we try, Larro is going to run out of characters for his quest really fast.

>>37650063You know, from now on, I kinda want people to spell out their spells.[ Rune Rune Rune ] --- [ Rune Rune ] -> [Rune] for example
Oh my god this quest is running today
"Aaaaaah!">Tali runs over to Maolin and shoves his hand into her chest. The material is dense but it gives way to his invasive fist. Clay parts and soon he can feel a hard tube inside of her. As he tries to pull it out Maolin sits up.>She looks at Tali. Tali stares at her."Wait." Anita says. "I think that was for non-sentient golems... Sentient ones reset themselves..."
>>37650165"Sorry, she gave me the wrong advice."
>>37650063>>37650165Release tube, pull hand out, cast spell, apologize profusely.
>>37650165NICEEEEEEEEE~!Good one, Tali. I'm giving you a 10/10 for touching your first real clay breasts.
>>37650165Caress the phylactery sensually. Remember to stare her straight in the eyes.
>>37650165That bitch did it on purpose.We'll show her! WE'LL SHOW HER!
>>37650165She didn't tell you to stop, Tali.
>>37650192Considering that Maolin heard what Anita said, this will likely go over well.
>>37650165ANITA YOU PRICK.
Can we all agree that Anita is best master?
>>37650165Tali!Tali!Listen to me.First rub your thumb in a circular fashion...
>>37650165>Try not to blush>Blush a lotA-are you okay?
>>37650165Tali, you don't say sorry when talking about touching someone else's body. You say thank you.
>>37650165Just... Just start jacking off her phylactery.This is already fucking weird. Make it maximum weird.
>>37650165Immediately curse her out.Also apologize to maolin for grope(?)ing her.that's inappropriate.
>>37650165DO NOT APOLOGIZEGO ALL IN
>>37650289The e should be dropped in that scenario.
>>37650165Wow. Let go and apologize to Maolin. It should be obvious WHY you were doing that though, considering what Anita just said, so I don't expect a beating to occur or anything.Okay, lesson learned, do not trust Anita.
>>37650165New plan Tali. We will steal all Anita's artifacts.
>>37650165Apologize for hurting her, thank her for the treat.
>>37650165All or nothing, Tali,
>>37650358>stab Antia with the womb dagger
>>37650165Shit, there's a few of us lingering in Anita's orb. Gotta be.
>>37650391>Saving Private Blue
>>37650385don't you mean>stab tali with womb dagger
>>37650399Leave 'em. They're already in charge over there, by the looks of it.
>>37650391That must mean there's some Red Orb faggots still in here as well. REVEAL YOURSELVES
>>37650165Great, now we ruined her for marriage.Promise to take responsibility.
>>37650165Maolin! You didn't die!HURRAY!
>Tali pulls out his hand. Maolin stands up and replaces her chest porcelain and dusts off herself a bit.>Tali doesn't quite know what to say. Maolin breaks the silence by speaking up first."Tali." She says. Tali snaps to attention. "Whatever you hold... It has spells woven into it. Artifacts normally do. That's what makes them artifacts. But yours has been altered after it's creation. That is not an easy thing to do. I could not even begin to tell what was hidden inside. I think you should get rid of it. An item that's true purpose can not be discovered is nothing but dangerous.""Ah. I... I'll keep that in mind.""I mean it, Tali. For your own sake.">Tali just nods.That could have gone better... I think I should leave Maolin alone for a while. I'm not sure if what I did is some sort of golem taboo or whatever. And she's eying you guys.
>>37650448Did we take her precious thing?
>>37650448Maybe chat it up with Lan or 99c next?
>>37650448Well, it was kind of inappropriate.I mean, you got a REAL good fondle in on all her most sensitive parts.Anyways, don't worry about us, we're amazing.
>>37650448Oh, we're just corrupting your mind and violently lashing out at anything trying to decipher us.
>>37650448>And she's eying you guys.Maolin. Baby. We're harmless. Mostly.
>>37650448Just... Just tell her we give you horrible advice and try to get you to flirt with people.
>>37650448Our true purpose was to get our owner laid. It's no fucking mystery.NOW GO GET REVENGE ON ANITA. STAB HER WITH THE WOMB DAGGEROr, I dunno, visit 99c
>>37650448Use a spell to fix her face, since we damaged it.
>>37650448Tell her the orb is sorry for almost breaking her.Also, tell her how Anita will pay. We'll enchant her underwear so it's always itchy.
>>37650448>And she's eying you guys.>eyingeyyy lmao
>>37650487Yeah, pretty much.>>37650448Why are you not A. laid or B. the ruler of this school yet, tali?Explain it.
>>37650505Or that it makes her attracted to Tali
>>37650448Stop stammering you fool!"Thank you for the advice and looking out for me." Then hug her.Now, to Lan!
>>37650448I wonder if that was a golem orgasm.
>>37650559You know what they call orgasms in french, right?the little deathjust like Fuwa's pantsu
Turn invisible and steal books!I really need some more runes here, Tali, don't let me down.
>>37650448Begin preparations to kill Anita in her sleep and take her artifacts. That is preferable to stealing all our friends' artifacts for her. Or maybe don't take her artifacts, that would just be evidence.
>>37650613We Vaisi now?
>>37650603So what you're saying is, we should get Fuwa and Maolin together?
>>37650620Why kill her when we could mindbreak her and turn her into Tali's slave?
>>37650448Psst. Hey. Hey, golem. Hey. We're in your heaaaaaaaaad.
>>37650448Tali... I suddenly suspect your school has darker secrets than even this school's best spies have uncovered. Find a way to guard your mind from the orb. Perhaps with some runes?Go check on what the SCIENCE club is doing!
>>37650448Give her a hug and apologize, and tell her you were trying to wake her back up. Use your cute puppy dog face.
>>37650635What I'm saying is that Vaisi might not be so far off when she tries to kill people. Maybe she's just an intense lover.
>>37650448Geeze Tali, for someone who claims to not be interested in boobs you didn't hesitate to go wrist deep into a fair nice pair
>>37650448hey, we paid for 3 artifact reading. I want to know what the red ring does
...I think we are a Ceer spy orb. We are like the red orb except boosted to give a greater variety of advice, so that more people are likely to want to use it. We corrupt our user so that they like our advice more and more over time, we push the user to do interesting things... and there's a Ceer that talks through it.
>>37650689Makes you buy a new Distraction Sphere 360.
"I'm really sorry about that... And touching your phylactery.""It is okay. There is no way you could have known what examining that artifact would have done. I do not blame you. As for my phylactery... It was an emergency. I understand.">Tali hugs Maolin. The idea that he almost killed her hits him and he apologizes again. Maolin pats his back."There. There." She says in her normal monotone.>When Tali leaves the room Anita follows."Anita I think I'm going to just go to my room.""Aww... Are we going to meet up tomorrow?""Maybe. I don't know.""You're not mad about the phylactery thing, are you?""A bit, yeah.""If it makes you feel better I'm certain she didn't mind.""... Goodnight, Anita.">Tali leaves the artifact girl behind and goes to his room. Lan is there along with Ninety-Nine Copper with the store girl already in bed."Hey there, Tali~" Lan says. "How was your day?"
>>37650785Went into a dungeon, got some phat loot. Almost killed Maolin. Also got a whip for some fun.Show her the whip.
>>37650785Great till I almost killed someone. Funny thing was I was less dangerous in the dungeon than out of it.
>>37650785"I accidentally fisted a girl back to life after killing her"Yknow, the usual.
>>37650785"It was... interesting."
>>37650785Be honest with her. She probably knows already.
>>37650785Tell her you learned that an unspeakable evil gives you advice on how to pick up chicks!
>>37650785Learning spell crafting, dungeon delving and killing Maolin. You did pretty alright, Tali.
>>37650785We didn't steal any books yet how can you go to sleep! Steal books while everyone ELSE is asleep, then.
Where does Tali find the privacy to jack it?
Almost killing someone is a step up from ACTUALLY killing someone(yourself) right? You're making clear improvement. We're going to make a mage out of you yet.
>>37650785>went dungeon diving>made friends with an artifact junkie and the head of thorn class>got a cool staff and hat and some cash>and stuck my hand into Maolin's chest when I thought she was broken and needed her phylactery reset>you know, the usual
>>37650884He has a glamour, just has to worry about being quiet.For the smell, well he's a tree hugger. Probably just makes it smell like syrup or resin in the room.He can stealth masturbate anywhere there's not truesight!
>>37650907Soon he's only going to maim those around him.Our little Tali is growing up!
>>37650884he doesn't, it'll just keep building up til something snaps
>>37650884He doesn't, he gets blue balls all the time
>>37650916He could do it in bed with Fuwa and she wouldn't even know?
>>37650785Well, we got wrapped up in trying to save someone from a dungeon, then almost accidentally killed a very nice golem.Somehow we made a large profit out of the exchange.
>>37650916>makes it smell like syrup or resin in the room.Oh my.
>>37650943Well, as long as we are with him, he does not actually have a moment of privacy.
"Well... I went into a dungeon to save some people, made friends with a girl who's really obsessed with artifacts, got a really neat staff and some money, nearly killed Maolin and stuck my hand in her chest in an ill guided attempt to reset her phylactery, and now I'm here. So... It's been stressful to say the least.">Lan gives Tali a knowing smile."Yeah. We've all been there and done that. Trust me. You should have seen Tessa her first few days here. The girl was a mess. But eventually she got settled and look at her now~ She's a great student. And I'm sure when you get settled in you will be too.">Tali smiles."Thanks, Lan.""No problem." She holds out a small cup. "Would you like a drink? Best way to end off the day."Where was she hiding that cup..?
>>37650943>>37650963I guess you could say we're blue balling him all the time.
>>37650884if the showers around here are anything to go by, probably his next bath
>>37650916Or maybe the glamour just covers it up a little by making it look like girl-Tali is jilling off?
>>37650884He could do it in the shower or something.
>>37650986Oh, sure, I can't see any reason not to.
>>37650986Drink and pass out.
>>37650986DON'T ASK QUESTIONS, TAKE A SWIG
>>37650986Take the drink.
Quick! Use that steal object spell to acquire that cup! You've got magic now, use it for menial tasks!
>>37650986>Where was she hiding that cup..?in her bosom Tali, the magic pocket of the female race
>>37650986>Where was she hiding that cup..?Tali! That's rude!You should drink what's offered to you. Say thank you.
>>37650986Try not to pass out, but of course.Wait, do elves do "just drinking"? If I recall, you guys got wasted on drink one.Do you do that?Just drink normally without getting drunk?
>>37650986Probably nowhere. Magic, bro. Also don't get drunk before bed. You don't want a hangover in the morning. Nor do you want to become an alcoholic.
>>37650986CHUG CHUG CHUG CHUG
>>37650986More importantly, how did she fill the cup? I sure hope she's not going Caffornicator on us.
>>37650986Drink, it will help you destress
>>37650986Yeah, sure. What can possibly go wrong?>>37650993>those absSweet baby Jesus.
>>37651029Which Tali could have, for the low low price of "your junk"
>>37650986Remember last time this happened and you drank from it.Don't do it Tali.
>>37650986>>37651081Remember last time this happened and you drank from it.Do it Tali.
>>37650986Be a man. Swig from the gourd.
>Tali takes the cup and takes a drink.>The rest of the night is a complete blur.====================================>Ninety-Nine Copper wakes up in the middle of the night. It's been a few days since she moved from Vendal's room and she still wasn't quite used to the feeling of the room.>Out of the corner of her eye she spots the Orb, floating in a mug of ale. She steps out of bed, startled a bit as her bare feet touch the cool floor, and goes over to the Orb. She fishes it out of the mug and wipes away the alcohol with a nearby cloth.Hello.
>>37650986The gourd is healing magic Tali, take a drink. You'll feel better.
>>37651176Hi 99! Do you like your blanket? Anita wants to steal it, so make sure you keep it safe.
>>37651176I WANNA COME INSIDE YOUR STORE, 99c!
>>37651176Well hello there little girl, how's the business been at the shop?
>>37651176Avoid the liquid. It is harmful to the mind.How are you doing?
>>37651176Hey ninety-nine copper, how are you doing?We kinda traumatised Tali today, please take good care of him.
>>37651176Good evening 99 Cent, how are you doing today? No need to speak aloud and work your way through an annoying and limited vocabulary.
>>37651176Yay! Hi 99c. Hide your blanket, there's a crazy bitch out to steal it
>>37651176Hello, 99c.You're best girl, did you know that?
>>37651176Hi 99. How's it going? You need anything?
>>37651176Hello 99 Copper we are the blue Orb of chaos, Ceer artifact, advice giver, and pervert. We give unfiltered advice to those who hold us and all you have to do in exchange is listen to our mumblings. Sometimes our advice is good, sometimes it isn't but there will always be a thread of truth within us. So how are you today. What do you need?
>>37651176Hello, 99c. How are you doing this evening?
>>37651176oh god what did Tali do
>>37651176Hi 99c. First rule of dealing with us: don't trust us.
>>37651176If I would like to invest in your school front store who would I speak to? Directly to you or through Tali instead?
>>37651205>please take good care of him.WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING, FAGGOT>HIMNO NO NO NO NO
To OP, grats on getting permanently employed!
>>37651176By the by, 99c, feel free to talk to us or ask us for advice anytime!
>>37651298Hey now there is no need for that kind of Language in front of 99c
>>37651176Good evening, 99c. How are you?
>>37651194>>37651212We will keep it safe.>>37651199I'm closed right now.>>37651200Business has been well.>>37651203>>37651205>>37651210>>37651251>>37651266We are doing well, thank you very much.>>37651281He was very loud and singing with Lan. They seemed to have fun.>>37651203I will avoid it.>>37651317Okay. Thank you.>>37651288I can help you with that. What products are you looking to sell?>>37651252What do we need..? Something to eat. I am hungry. But the kitchen is closed.
>>37651176Holy shit, it's best girl. Hi best girl!
>>37651176We would like to express our appreciation of the wonderful service you provide.
>>37651176Guys what's being censored by the mug of ale? What are we not seeing now?
>>37651331>I am hungry. But the kitchen is closed.Simple, it may be closed, but that doesn't mean you can't sneak in.There's no curfew, is there?
>>37651331You shouldn't snack late at night.
>>37651331>HeDo you know the secret too? Are there actually any people who don't know?
>>37651331We don't actually want to sell any products right now. We were just wondering.Is there any food in the room, besides the mind-altering liquid?
>>37651331>I can help you with that. What products are you looking to sell?Well, us personally, Tali's... companionship...Tali himself isn't selling so much as buying. He wants information. Anything on secret magic, artifacts, and the sort.
>>37651331Consume Tali's delicious manflesh.
>>37651331You should take a bite out of Tali. He's practically a leafy vegetable
>>37651331>I can help you with that. What products are you looking to sell?A line of Magical and mythological themed plush toys. Some are even enchanted!Also eating is late is normally bad for you however if it's just this once we could probably get you into the kitchen
>>37651331>Something to eat. I am hungry. But the kitchen is closed.We know a spell to make Ice Cream, but it kills you if you cast it. So don't cast it. We might be able to sneak into the kitchen for Food and ADVENTURE!
>>37651331Do Tali or Lan keep any snacks in their room?
>>37651331Anyone else notice she's using singular personal pronouns instead of 'we,' 'us,' etc?
>>37651331For food use us an energy source to create a snack, but after that we'll need to sleep
>>37651331Suck on Tali's ears. She's actually an elf that's using a glamour to pretend to be human. She grew up in a human village and being different made her uncomfortable, so she picked up that habit.Anyway, suck the ears. Elf ears are nutrition.
>>37651331Sneak into the kitchen.Acquire ice cream.
>>37651331I've noticed that you're speaking of yourself as an individual. That's good. You're making progress.
>>37651331DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO MAKE A SPELL THAT CONVERTS ALCOHOL TO ICE CREAM?
>>37651331The kitchen is closed, eh?well, these kids are bound to keep all kinds of snacks around here.NOTE: most snacks may be booze based.
>>37651331Are there any snack machines? We could go get something from one of those. If you don't have any spending money you can take a few coins from Tali's stash. You have our permission, which is as good as her permission.
>>37651403>>37651363EVERYTHING COMES TUMBLING DOWNEVERYONE WILL KNOW TALI IS A BOY IF WE KEEP THIS UP
>>37651425>Everyone already knows Tali is a boy>he's so nice nobody cares
>>37651425You. Aren't. Helping.
>>37651331Are you okay with ice cream? Because we know how to make that.I wonder if we could use some of the liquor in Lan's flask for fuel. Create a rum ice cream?
>>37651331You can either look for snacks or sneak into the kitchen anyway. A few of us know how to cook. Who do you know likes to SNACK or COOK?
>>37651443But we snack on souls
>>37651425I thought the orb autocensors if they didn't already know. Or was that a one time only thing
>>37651443>COOK?Please 99c pick cook. There are some awesome things you can make at 3 a.m.
>>37651459and Ice Cream!
>>37651443Give a 99c a snack, and you feed her for a night.But teach a 99c to sneak into the kitchen, messily make a sandwich, and then sneak back out again, and you feed her for the rest of her life.
Hey, 99c, do you know where we could purchase some books?Because I need books.
99c, why is Lily so terrible?
>>37651439We could use it as conversion material that would be a LOT easier than converting pure energy to ice cream. But milk or cream would be easier, although we don't know the runes for those.
>>37651331Wait. Wait. 99c, you should put us away. The orb is a VERY DANGEROUS magical artifact! Maolin almost killed herself trying to analyze it. Who knows what it can do? We care about you so please, put it away!
>>37651338Thank you.There is no curfew but the kitchen is closed and I don't think we are allowed to go in there.>>37651364Hmm. There is no food. Lan ate all the snacks.>>37651379That is illegal.>>37651380I can speak to my boss about getting such a thing.And it will only be this one time, okay?>>37651403Tali is an elf? That would explain why she smells so good.But I don't think that thing about the ears is true. Is it?>>37651417>>37651420You can make alcohol into ice cream?Let me see if we can...>Ninety-Nine Copper reaches for Lan's gourd. It falls over and splatters alcohol into the ground.Oh.1/2
>>37651606>That is illegal.So moe.Never stop being so best.
>>37651606>Is it?As true as I'm an orb.
>>37651606>That is illegal.>That would explain why she smells so good.
>>37651606You need to clean that up quickly! They might write you up, or fire you!
>>37651606Elf ears are nutrition. People say they're like knives but really elf ears are more like sliced bananas.
>>37651606Who is your boss?
>>37651661You got that backwards, m80. They use them for slicing bananas.
>>37651676Ohhhh. That would explain the bananay residue on Tali's ears.
>>37651606>But I don't think that thing about the ears is true. Is it?It is very true. Elf babes suckle on elf ears for nourishment.
>>37651606Be careful with the alcohol spill. It's flammable, so don't move any open flames near it.
>>37651606>But I don't think that thing about the ears is true. Is it?But it is true.
>>37651606>But I don't think that thing about the ears is true. Is it?100% true.
>>37651663The man who owns the store.>>37651643>Ninety-Nine quickly cleans up the spell before anyone can see.>When everything is cleaned she gets up and sneaks outside of her room. As she creeps down stairs she hears a THUMP.>Thump.>Thump.>Thump.>She looks and sees Vendal making her way down the stairs, dragging her tail behind her. With each step she slithers down it hits the stair with a 'thump'.It's Vendal.Maybe she could help us.But what if she doesn't let me get a snack?
>>37651722>both best girls in one sceneYES PLEASEGET HELP FROM HER
>>37651722She might be sleep walking. Go out and see if she notices you. If she keeps going, she's sleepwalking and might be suggestible.
>>37651722Make out with her. It's practically sushi.
>>37651606>I can speak to my boss about getting such a thing.>And it will only be this one time, okay?Thanks alot 99c remember to grab yourself a plushie for free>>37651722She's so tired that even is she says no you can probablly just wait a few minutes for her to forget
>>37651722Of course she can help.Hey vendal, we are planning a kitchen heist. Are you in, or will I have to render you unconscious?Menace with the comfy blanket.
>>37651722Vendal is really friendly though! I'm sure she'll share her snacks with you. Just ask for some food.
>>37651722You could always ask to snack on her tongue.
>>37651722Obtain snack then ask for help
>>37651722That might be bad for her tail. I think she'd appreciate it if you lifted it for her while she went wherever she's going.
>>37651722...Is she actually awake? If so, then you might as well ask. You said it yourself, there's not actually a curfew.
>>37651722>The man who owns the store.And who is that? What is his name? What does he look like?>But what if she doesn't let me get a snack?I doubt that. She'll be happy to help. And if not, we'll convince her.
>>37651722She's asleep. Tell her that she needs to go and lay down in the bed with Tali and Lan so she doesn't get hurt.
>>37651722I would hope that she'd be happy for you taking such independent action.
>>37651722You should try to guide her to a safe place if she's sleepwalking. Or sleep-slithering.Or perhaps you can also use her as a diversion in case you're not allowed into the kitchen after-hours?
>>37651722Vendal will help!
>>37651841>>37651747Don't bully the copper.
>>37651722Who is the man who owns the store? Has Tali met him?
>>37651868I never met him myself."Vendal." Ninety-Nine calls out.>The undine half opens her eyes and looks in Ninety-Nine's direction. She tilts her head a bit and waves sleepily."Hey... What are you doing out of bed..?""Getting a snack.""Ah... Thass good... You gotta remember to eat.""Would you like a snack?""That would be lovely, Ninety-Nine. Thank you.""Okay. You look tired. You can nap with Tali and Lan. Would you like that?""I would like that very much...""Come on." Ninety-Nine grabs Vendal's hand and leads her into the room. She helps the undine get into bed, right on top of Tali and Lan, and then covers the group with a blanket."Thank you dear..." Vendal says. "You're such a sweet girl... Don't forget to not let the eye see you...""Okay.">Ninety-Nine leans over and tucks Vendal in, as the undine had done to the store girl when she first arrived.>She makes her way to the kitchen. The eye is above the door, open and aware for any who dare to sneak in.How do we get past it?
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>37651898Flash tits
Rolled 97 (1d99)>>37651898Throw a rock at it.
>>37651898THROW US AT IT.WOO HOO
>>37651898If you've never met him, how are you sure he owns the store?
>>37651898Both of you need to get into a cardboard box and sneak under it into the room. REMEMBER, THIS IS A SNEAKING MISSION
>>37651898Oh look, see that conveniently placed cardboard box? Hide under it and sneak towards the doors while under the box.
>>37651898The eye is kind of in a pretty shitty position. I don't think it can see directly under itself and off to the sides slightly. If we can get to the wall, we might be able to sidle against the wall and into the Kitchen.
>>37651898touch us to it
>>37651898Throw us at it, we'll break it.
>>37651898>tali is sleeping with two ladies, one of which is the goddamn vendalThis is amazing.Also, how does the eye work? Does it raise an alarm?What happens if you just toss paint at it?Also, what would happen if you got a box labelled "ORDINARY FOOD" and snuck in wearing it?
>>37651919Here we go again
>>37651919Seconding rock throw.
>>37651898If you can cast spells you can turn yourself invisible or blind the eye. You could cover yourself or they eye with a bedsheet. You could try an alternate route somewhere like a vent.
>>37651898Insert us into the eye
>>37651919>>37651951>>37651958Please refrain from breaking school property.
>>37651898>>37651919Throw a rock at it, it's a good luck ritual of ours
>>37651898Sneak in under a box!
>>37651898If you didn't meet the store owner, then which employees did you talk to?
>>37651963Invisible is difficult, but if 99c has a spellbook we could cast a spell to blind the eye pretty easily.
>>37652006No one, really. They are not very social.>>37651919Okay.>Ninety-Nine picks up a rock and throws it. Even with her noodly arms she manages to strike.>>37651986Oh! Oh no!>There is a brief moment of panic before the rock hits the eye and harmless bounces off. It seems the school anticipated such a thing.>>37652001>>37651948>>37651930>>37651927>Ninety-Nine picks up a box. She hides under it while slowly crawling into the kitchen. She feels the cardboard press against the doors for just a moment before pushing them aside and entering.1/2
>>37651898"Let me in, one appliance to another"
>>37652061Grab a bunch of snacks to share with Vendal.
>>37652061If none of the employees met you, then why were you working at the store and how did you know what to do? How did you know there even were other employees, and that the store's owner was male?
>>37652061Now that we are accepted as ordinary food, ravage the kitchen for what you need, then leave.
>>37652050eyeblinding spell, here we go
>>37652106I don't understand.>>37652061>Ninety-Nine is inside the kitchen. She stands up and looks around. Things are packed but not locked away. The entire kitchen is at her disposal.Hmm.What to make?
>>37652150>What to make?Mobius Sandwich.
>>37652150Try a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a classic.
>>3765215099c, do you know any culinary magic?
>>37652150Grilled cheese sandwich for yourself.Do you know what Vendal tends to eat? I'd imagine she'd want something with meat in it.
>>37652150Probably a hotdog
>>37652150see if anything is already prepared to eat so you dont have to cook like bread or something
>>37652150We need to work on your throwing, missy. But that's for later. For now, pile everything you can into a sandwich.
>>37652181>I'd imagine she'd want something with meat in it.I'm pretty sure tali keeps a hotdog on his person.
>>37652150>I don't understand.Do you know how you came to be at the store or how you knew what to do there? Where did that knowledge come from?Eh, we can ponder existential doubt another time. For now, look for some thinly-sliced bread and other thinly-sliced foods.
>>37652150Make a Sandvich! It's delicious and restores 300 HP.
>>37652150Make a sandwich bigger than your mouth!
>>37652150A double-decker bread sandwich. With the center bread patty surrounded by a meat bun and some vegetables.
>>37652150A sandwich with two slices of white bread, one thin slice of meat, a slice of cheese, another thin slice of meat on top of it, a few pickle slices on top of that and a lettuce leaf.
>>37652150Wait wait- first of all, what CAN you make?
>>37652150How did you get the idea to become a store representative? Can you tell us what the store owner looked like?A sandwich should be fine.
>>37652150A Sinner's Sandwich
>>37652150We require additional parameters.What is the level of your cooking abilities?What food do you like and dislike?About how hungry are you? Peckish or ravenous?
>>37652296I'm afraid we can't answer that. Another time. Sorry.Let's get a sandwich.>First, Ninety-Nine makes Vendal something. A simple hot dog in a bun. For the sandwich she searches til she finds sliced bread. She takes the two middle slices and then goes to the ice box. Inside she finds bundles of sliced meats, cheeses, and leafy things. She takes all of them and applies layer after layer on the bread until the sandwich is a size she deems appropriate to feed her empty belly.>She takes her prize and sneaks back out of the kitchen and to her room. She lays the hotdog aside for Vendal when she wakes and begins to munch on her snack.Perfect. Thank you for your help, orb. It was fun.Goodnight.===End of Chapter 12===
>>37652415MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEI'm gonna die of a heart attack.
>>37652415>vendal eating hot dogsYou have excellent choice.
>>37652415Be sure to brush your teeth after! Never know when a set of pearly whites is the only thing standing in between success and failure. Or heart disease/gingivitis.
>>37652150How much do you get paid working at the store?
>>37652415Remember to work on that rock throwing!
Is it just me or is 99C speaking more like a normal person and less like an automated store attendant?
>>37652415You remembered to cook the hot dog, right?
>>37652415Damn. The mystery of 99c endures.
>>37652447THIS>>37652415A bright smile attracts customers!
Thanks for reading guys, hope you enjoyed! As always the start time for the next one will be posted on the twitter. Sorry about the long gap between chapters but real life can be like that sometimes. As I said on twitter I am getting a new job so chapters will most likely have to be around the time this one took place or on weekends.
>>37652536wait whatdid the comfypire have problems?
>>37652536What was tali's reaction to waking up surrounded by bitches?
>>37652536Thanks for running!
>>37652562The orb is frightfully good at its job.
>>37652536Congratulations on your new career, Larro, and thanks for running!
>>37648615While he was drunk, Tali practiced spells!Tali can now cast:Lift TargetPropel TargetLift SelfPropel Self &Steal TargetThe others were deemed too dangerous to try without having someone not drunk look at.>>37652557They were fighting a comfyriah. One who is truly devoid of comfy.>>37652562You'll see next thread!
>>37652636getting tali drunk is the best plan.
>>37652657I don't know, he's immune to our influence when he touches alcohol it seems like.
>>37652636I missed the thread!! NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!Oh well! Thanks for running!!
>>37652474Of course, This was her mind we were directly speaking to. We also know how to talk to her.
>>37652696>>37652564>>37652600Thanks a bunch! Glad you guys enjoyed it
>>37652755So, we got to what, second vase with the golem?
>>37652636What is a comfyriah like? How could someone even get that uncomfy? Are they made entirely out of sand-in-swimsuit-net and pebblesocks while wearing a wetsuit in a sauna with all the steam made of ballsweat?
>>37652755No, thank you. You're a nice guy, Larro.
>>37652755Draw more lewds.
>>37652536>Wafu >Fuwa>wa fu>fu waMY GODTHEY'RE SISTERS
>>37652774They can be accidentally or purposfully created by a Comfypire that drains absolutely all the comfort from someone too quickly or by a comfy mage that accidentally messed up their comfy spells. Either way they are terrible abominations that are shunned by all.>>37652804I can only draw so much!
>>37652824No, arch rivals.
>>37652755Lookin pretty Xeno there, Mao.
