-You're a Puppetmancer, in a Industrial Revolution-like setting, were magic and technology coexist. Heavily inspired in Unbreakable Machine-Doll.[Flashback]You're at home, at Daichi village, and your stepfather, Mr. Kai. He's is having a look at your grades in the living room, next to the low table and his sake. It wasn't normal for him to be outside of his workshop in the basement, so despite that you don't have the best kind relationship with him, you cherish the few moments you two share together, as if he was some kind of aloof mentor you admire from a distance. "So, you're not doing absolutely horribly, but I would've expected some more from you, kiddo." he says, in his usual deep voice. Well you weren't no genius, but at least you were good at *some* things. Then you had that class which you just sucked at.>Choose 2 Classes to be the ones you were good at. Choose 1 to be the one you were bad at.- Modern Technologies- Magic- Military Training- History- Foreign Language: English"Regardless, it's OK. You're doing at least fine. And, kid, I'll be honest with you." he adds. "I'll never remember your name. What was it again?">Write in a name.

How do you divine things with puppets?
>>40049879>Good: Magic and Modern Technologies>Bad: History>Name: Alice
>>40049903Divine? Please rephrase, I don't understand what you mean.>>40049892You may choose 2 good classes and 1 bad class as well.

>>40049919He's being pedantic about [whatever]mancy traditionally meaning "the practice of divining (predicting) the future using [whatever]".
>>40049879>- Magic>- History>>40049903By counting their skin pores.
>>40049934Also, suck at:- Modern Technologies
Good: Modern Tech, MagicSuck: English
>>40049934>by counting their skin poresNeat, we're using leather and hides for our puppets?
>>40049932There's a popular use of the term. He can suck cock and choke.
>>40049956No m8, we use shotguns.
>>40050003So we tell the future from the skin pores of those we kill with our shotgun dolls?We obviously need to put points into gunsmithing to get the most accurate divination murder bots.
>>40050020No m8, we build our puppets out of shotguns.
>>40049879>Good- Modern Technologies- Magic>Suck- Foreign Language: EnglishName: Than
>>40050029That's what I mean, we need the gunsmithing to make our own magical shotguns to then make the dolls out of.We need a secure supply of doll parts and what better way than to make it ourselves? Its genius m8.
>>40050053Our shotgun dolls will conquer the wooooorld m8.
>>40050065And then we can harvest people using the shotgun dolls to make human shotgun dolls!
>>40049879Good at: magic and military trainingBad at: history
>>40050147But anon, don't you want to have a cute asian accent?
"Ashton Soo" you tell him. "Well, soon Ashton Kai, I guess. The paperwork still hasn't been done, dad.""Yeah, I know." he replies. "Kiddo. Have I ever told you how much you look like your mother? Alice?""Yeah." you reply, saddened. "I hope she's happy now, wherever she is, up there." Mr. Kai nodded.He then took a sip, and started to walk back into his workshop. "Gone so soon?" you ask. "I've got... Work to do. Go to bed."Obediently, you go to bed, and try to sleep.---*---You suddenly wake up, in your bedroom. Well, what is left of it. The walls have been destroyed and the pieces were burning, the rest of the village was in a similar state. Smoke was rising from everywhere. Was it a bombardment? An attack? Here?Desperate and scared, you for look for dad, at his basement. He has told you to never go there - but you needed him. You reach the large metal door at the end of the stairs - which has been left oddly half-open and not locked shut like always, and you pull it open. You find dad dead, on the ground. You want to scream. But you can't.You stare at the scene, paralyzed.---*---(Cont.)
>>40050177Not that anon, but I find most east asian accents to be grating.
>>40050200Get your dad's heirloom shotgun! We will need it to survive!
You're still in the workshop, horrified, hearing women and men outside screaming. Soon they'll come for you, won't they? Maybe not. But what if they do?There is a puppet here, on the workbench. Was dad working on it? It looked like a young girl. Curious, you decide to see what it's about, how Dad made her. Then it twitched, and sat up suddenly. And it looked at you.Choose one Physical Disadvantage.>Made of very expensive, hard-to-find materials: Repairing her won't be easy, and very costly. Where did dad get all Magiwood and Darkbark? How did he ship it from the mainland?>Sensual Design: Her body has been designed to give the appearance of a very attractive and very voluptuous young girl. Not the best warrior design, bit it can still fight effectively, just a bit less than the more combat-oriented designs.

Why would Dad have one of these in the basement?Can we use this to create shitloads of body doubles down the line and ruse absolutely everyone?

>>40050292Actually, I like this. Can we do this?
>Time for disadvantages!>Do you want your puppet to be impossible to fix? Or would you rather have it be glitchy as fuck and potentially explode every time you do anything?>What? You want a third option? Well, I guess if you're crazy you it could be a waifubot or something and be slightly less good at combat. But that's horrible!I can't tell if the QM actually had a thought process resembling that or if he was just doing QM Stalling Tactics™ by tossing us a vote he already knows the results to.
>>40050292please let this be a thing
>>40050328Well I kind of assumed that option 1 would make our bot stronger and better at fighting. Not sure about option 3 though...
>>40050292Not a real flaw, though. That's just a regular critfail mechanism.>>40050228>>40050228>Sensual desingBig bodies aren't sensual, though.Will we be able to modify her later?
please don't make this a wafu quest ....
>>40050381I think anon means it as there being some kind of random encounter table built in. It seems sufficiently different from the combat critfail option presented by Cheesecake.
>>40050381It's less about Critfail and more "There's a small chance of something completely fucking insane happening, but it's decided ahead of time if that function unlocks. Can be good (like it turns out it has an explicably effective medical algorithm) or bad (it has a 'Berserker' mode where it kills everyone nearby except for the designated owner)
>>40050400Too late, did you see the OP image?We're gonna be fucking a wood doll and make things really creepy when our living dildo gets magical plot sentience.
(Good Classes: Modern Technologies, Magic, Bad: History. You've got a strong asian accent.)You approach the voluptuous puppet and, well, poke it. Why were the things on her chest so huge and bunched up in that way in the corset? Would she be able to fight better like that? She also seemed to be... Sleeping. And with a bunch of notes next to her. They have dad's handwriting. You decide to read them."The puppet experiment has been successful. I've managed to build a living, LIVING puppet (...)" It goes on about design pointers, and other technical lingo you don't understand yet. However, you manage to piece together that she is:>Choose a Mental Characteristic-Very Distant: She won't trust people easily, and she is permanent set to a "aloof" mode. Higher risk of treason, but more professional and serious.-Quite Dumb: She isn't too bright, and well, a bit stupid. Normal risk of treason, normal combat skill.-Extremely Affectionate: She's a huge cuddlebug, and will cling to you in excentric ways, just to get her fix of affection. Lowest risk of treason, but excentric behaviour.You also find a annotation in the margin. She has an Experimental Design as well. Curious. (Experimental design. Every day, there is a 1 in a hundred chance of it doing something completely unexpected, which vary on scales of 1 to 10 of how bad this thing is.)
>>40050416but but ..... splinters !
>>40050417>-Extremely Affectionate: She's a huge cuddlebug, and will cling to you in excentric ways, just to get her fix of affection. Lowest risk of treason, but excentric behaviour.Your not my real Mom!
>>40050400>A quest by a dude named "Cheesecake">Based off of Magic Waifu Robot: The Anime>The QM holds a "flaws" vote where the robot being a hot chick is put alongside random critfails and massive maintenance costsAnon, I got some news for you. The QM is making this a waifu quest.
>>40050417>AffectionateJust give us all the waifu settings already, don't give us false choices.
>>40050417>-Quite Dumb: She isn't too bright, and well, a bit stupid. Normal risk of treason, normal combat skill.
>>40050443Well, you could have concluded that for the fact that OP is making quest on /tg/ alone.
>>40050417>-Extremely Affectionate: She's a huge cuddlebug, and will cling to you in excentric ways, just to get her fix of affection. Lowest risk of treason, but excentric behaviour.What are the odds of daughteruing our dolls instead of waifuing them?
>>40050417>Quite Dumb: She isn't too bright, and well, a bit stupid. Normal risk of treason, normal combat skill.Got the waifu body, let's keep it good at combat outside of bed too.
>>40050417>-Quite Dumb: She isn't too bright, and well, a bit stupid. Normal risk of treason, normal combat skill.Dumb puppet best puppet
>>40050477Zero.Who's up for strapping a dick on it for futa?
>>40050477Go watch Unbreakable Machine-Doll and then ask yourself that question again.Also I'm pretty sure this thing is older than us, in both actual age and appearance.
>>40050493>select your prefered penis or penises from the bucket
>>40050417>-Extremely Affectionate: She's a huge cuddlebug, and will cling to you in excentric ways, just to get her fix of affection. Lowest risk of treason, but nymphomaniac behaviour.Here, have an improved alternative.
>>40050417-Very Distantlets go with tsundere
>>40050503All of them.
>>40050417-Extremely Affectionate: She's a huge cuddlebug, and will cling to you in excentric ways, just to get her fix of affection. Lowest risk of treason, but excentric behaviour.The main thing here is risk of treason, guys. We really can't risk something that we don't understand turning against us, even if it becomes yandere waifu.It's probably going to be a long while before we learn enough to make our own dolls, so we might as well make sure the one we're going to be using for the forseeable future doesn't betray us or leave us defenseless.
Just to check if I've critically failed at reading, has OP explicitly stated the puppet to be human-sized yet?
>>40050493Yes please. She can give us the affection we crave when our family is dead.
>>40050417Welp, I'm out. This quest had potential too. I'll be back once the waifufags get bored and go ruin something else, see if OP can repair the damage they've wrought.
>>40050552Uhh...I didn't want our bot to be unrepairable or explodey, and I didn't want it to betray us. This is what it must be.
>>40050552OP is giving us false choices and a waifu choiceIts pretty obvious that this is a quest only to tug your dick to.
You continue to look at the notes, finding that Dad had considered equipping her with powerful weaponary, but had... Modified her for carnal uses instead. Huh. You wonder what that meant.But he did equip her with *something*. It wasn't strong Magiwood tech, or a secret, hidden feral power, but it was, well. A little something.Choose one Equipment.>Inner Cavity of Holding>Heat Vision>Art Skill
>>40050552> I'll be back once the waifufags get bored and go ruin something else, see if OP can repair the damage they've wrought.The QM literally just held a vote for what type of -dere the puppet is. This quest is run by a waifufag, you dumb nog.
>>40050591>>Heat Vision>Heat Vision>Heat Vision>Heat Vision
>>40050591I vote for heat vision
>>40050591>Inner Cavity of HoldingFor the ability to lug around and deploy heavy artillery and portable bunkers at a moment's notice.Does Art Skill literally mean the power to paint real good?
>>40050591WE CHOSE TITS INSTEAD OF WEAPONS, NICE GOING GUYS.Well played QM, well played.>Inner Cavity of Holding.
>>40050591>Inner Cavity of HoldingI can't wait for all the "I need you inside me!" jokes.
>>40050591>A penisObligatory, there we go.Or >inner cavity of holding
>>40050591>Inner Cavity of Holding
>>40050591Cavity>>40050621Well duh, this is the kind of quest where we win at everything and fuck our robot waifu.
>>40050621On my part, I just wanted a Shanghai-style daughteru since a doll-Maiya to our Kiritsugu seemed unlikely.
>>40050644This quest is from the same QM that does High School of the Eldritch. There will be waifus, death and horrible suffering.
>>40050591>Inner Cavity of Holding
I'm fucking ready for this.>40050591>>Heat Vision
I find the lack of shotguns this far disappointing.
>>40050668So he already has a following? Explains the number of anons here. How is the other quest?Also, this kind of doll is a common reason for a scientits to lock himself up in the basement and ignore the world.
>>40050685I'm this ready for fucking.
You figure out that she has a inner cavity of holding, yet not much more specifications beyond that. As you continue to read on the notes, you see that she has something called an "Infinite Drive".It must be something your dad has been working on, some kind of mix of technology, magic and... Something else. You couldn't understand it, but there was one term that standed out of the most among the rest, from the which you could figure out the basic functionality:>Choose a Fuel for the Infinite Drive-Very (very) large amounts of regular food.-Consumption of Mana and magic things.
>>40050693>scientitsDad confirmed for transexual confirmed confirmed
>>40050717Consumption of mana, if you know what I mean.
>>40050717>-Consumption of Mana and magic things.
>>40050729white mana... and there is only one way to extract that
>>40050717>-Very (very) large amounts of regular food.What's good enough for Lina Inverse is good enough for anyboy else.>inb4: DotA
>>40050717>Very (very) large amounts of regular food.
>>40050717>Souls of mortal beingsFree energy!
>>40049879Fml thought that said pregnancy quest
>>40050717>-Very (very) large amounts of regular food.She's our waifu.Also, this'll let her disguise herself as human when we have her pretend to be us.
>>40050807well i don't think that's very unreasonable the way this quest is going
>>40050826>>40050807Magical lesbian babies when?
Is the mc a guy or a girl?
>>40050717>Consumption of Mana and magic things.Can we also have exposure to heat and sunlight as a secondary power source?
"Puppet" Specs:>Sensual Design>Extremely Affectionate>Inner Cavity of Holding>Infinite Drive: Mana and MagicThat's all you figure out. You try to activate it somehow - but you didn't know how. She was slowly breathing, sleeping lightly. It almost seemed like a crime to wake her up. But you do - you shove her a bit, trying to get her to open her eyes.But then it started to twitch - she, rather, started to twitch uncontrollably. You step backwards, confused and scared. In a attempt to control the situation, you summon forth tendrils of mana - the ones designed to latch onto and control puppets. But she seemed to move on her own - then, how exactly are you supposed to puppeteer her?Then, she stood up. She stared at you with a empty, robotic gaze.You look back.Suddenly, her torso opened up, revealing a magic seal that sucked you into her, swoop! - and you crashed into the... Flesh walls inside. She wasn't made of wood. She was made of flesh, living tissue, blood and bones. It felt humid, and dark. You could hear her heart pulsating from in here too.Then her heart started to go faster, and you could hear her running. Where was she taking you?You could hear her run upstairs, then outside. You could hear explosions, screams and gunshots. But she continued to run, with you inside, trapped.Then one of the explosions hit nearby, and everything went blank.[Flashback end](cont.)
>>40050868Holy fuck we can hide our dead bodies in her.
>>40050883that's actually awesome
>>40050859Guy, I'd say. Also, consumption of Mana seems a lot more reasonable than food, which you can also use. ...For some reason, I've got the mental image of something like this, or the goddesses from Mursama.
"Ashton Soo Kai" you read on your ticket to Spania. Yep. That was you. You stare at the piece of paper, still surprised that you've managed to get a ride to Europa. Conditions were better there, than back at home, which has been ravaged, split and destroyed by the war. Spania was a more peaceful place, and maybe you could find a job there, and perhaps even go to school.A face sticks to your cheek. It's Alice, the puppet that has been with you for the last few years. Now, you were a young lad, and Alice, surprisingly, has grown older along side you, but at a slower rate. It had to do with the Infinite Drive you assume, something your Dad was working on to make the ultimate weapon. You remember from his design notes that his approach was trying to make the Puppets as humanlike as possible - and what did humans have? An extremely long infancy, to develop. Mr.Kai believed that to be the key to evolution, progress and power. And he placed that in the homunculus-puppet he made: Alice.You adjust Alice on your back, as she piggy-backed on you, hugging you tightly. "Do you have my ticket too?" she asked, then nuzzled you."Yeah." you reply. "Can't you walk on your own though?" you complain. "Nope." she said, gripping your stomach with her legs, and giggling. "I'm your backpack now, Ashton" she continued. "I'm carrying everything in me - you might as well carry me in exchange, no?" You sigh, and climb up into the large Sancta Maria cruiser, hand in your tickets, and climb up.You're now in the Cruiser, and you will be here for a few days. You have your room here, somewhere in the middle part of the ship. There are small, recreative areas, the deck and not much more. You can speak to people, try to inform yourself more about Spania maybe, or really do whatever. It's up to you.>Write in.
>>40051018>Realize how much of giant fucking pussy and traitor you are and get back to home country to fight in the war
>>40051037We probably need training first.>>40051018Head out, and take a look at whoever's out there. Otherwise, we'll go stir-crazy.
>>40051037It can be done, if you guys choose so. I'm a very Write-in heavy QM, and I love to do whatever you guys decide to do, as long as its reasonable.
>>40051018>Go to the deck
>>40050935I see her more as something like this
>>40051018Let's try just to enjoy ourselves. Maybe listen to some music if there is any or just gaze into the ocean.Talking to strangers can actually be pretty dangerous
>>40051037>second third and fourth
>>40051018>Wander the ship, observing any magic or tech that seem interesting.Gotta go full nerd.And wait, we look like our mother, Alice, and our doll is also called Alice.I'm confused as to who to assign 2hu Alice to as my mental image for now.
>>40051073I've probably watched too much Unbreakable Machine Doll. My problem was that while the protagonist was great, Yaya was actually rather shrill and annoying. Also, everyone suffered from sameface.
I say talk to people find out good places to get lots of cheap food.
>>40051096Assign it to MCShe had to start somewhere
>>40051116I thought that we're a male MC.
>>40051116But Ashton was described as a 'young lad'. People still mistake him for a girl, don't they?
>>40051131>>40051152>>40050200>"Yeah, I know." he replies. "Kiddo. Have I ever told you how much you look like your mother? Alice?"We are a girl, I guess
You head to the areas at the outside, for some fresh air. You start to stroll around, with your trusty "Backpack" stuck to you, now deciding to kiss your nape. You didn't know if she was doing that to annoy you now, or if she really wanted to do that, given her inner compulsions to be extremely affectionate."Are we going to return back home someday?" Alice asks."Of course." you reply, confidently. However, we have to train, become capable, and then return. That's what the village wanted - that's why they've bought us this ticket. To leave, learn what we can, and return to share with the rest. It's out duty. What what we have now, we can't win. We need learn more, and Spania is the best place to start.""Ah" Alice replies, and then continues to kiss-nibble your nape.You see a few more Asian people here too, however, not anyone you know. Some people walk past you, and giggle, noticing how Alice was on your back, doing her thing."When we get to Spania, what are we going to do though, Ashton?" Alice asks. "No job, no home - we're gonna live like hobos!" but then she sunk her face into your neck. "But if I have you, Ashton, I'll be OK. You're my husband after all.""I'm not your husband, Alice." you correct.>Write in
>>40051187>>40051018Now, you were a young ladWe looked like our mother when we were younger, but we are indisputably male. Whether we still look like her is in the air.
>>40051192>I'm your master you silly puppetSo how good we are at this "magic" thing anyway?
>>40051192>Try to find any information on housing in Spania, and any possible jobs.I want us to try and find a place to crash, even if it's a homeless shelter or some sort of rundown cheap place. We'll need a HQ. But it depends on how much money we have with us right now.
>>40051192"I am however your lover"Proceed to sexy timesI know how these quests go might aswell get right to it
>>40051192>Keep looking around! Something interesting has to be happening somewhere!Also, Alice's next line is: "Alright then, if you prefer, you can be the wife."
>>40051192I'm really breaking out all the images here.>>40051226Later. It's not fun without sexual tension. We need to stay slightly aloof and a little discomfited by her constant attentions.
>>40051192locate the ships bar/cafeteria
"I'm your master you silly puppet" you add."But...I'm.." Alice starts to mutter, saddened. She didn't like to be considered a puppet, not when whe was unlike any other puppet in the world, and more akin to a human. A weird, fleshgrafted, magi-created human. of some sort.Then, Alice cheered up by poking fun at you. "Alright then, if you prefer, you can be the wife." You respond with a sigh.You walk around, trying to eavesdrop anyone talking about their future plans. Two men in suits draws your attention."Mr. Hashimoto, I see you're off to quite the vacation to Spania." the taller one said."Ah, its not vacations, my dearest Yamamoto. Buisness, buisness! That's what I'm up to. Guess what - Our créme of the créme loves Spanish wine and meat. I'm going to try to make negotiations to arrange a travel route between a contact I have in Jerez de la Frontera - it's pronounced like that, isn't it - and Ryuu Port. It will be good buisness, trust me comrade. If you can provide me with boats. good shipmen, and protection from pirates, I will make you a wealthy man.">Write in

Why are we trying to drop eaves for?
>>40051400 I like this
>>40051400Yeah, let's go with that. Have her 'accidentally' bump into them, and get their stuff.
"Prove yourself, and I might reconsider marrying you." you tell Alice. She immediately wrapped herself to your front, gripped you and pushed you forwards, tackling you onto the floor, involuntarily by her excitement."Really? Really? For real?" she starts to nearly stammer, blushing in emotion. You make a stern face. "I said I *might* reconsider. Also, get off me. We're making a scene here.""Oh, sorry." she replied, and helped you up. "By the way, Alice." you continue. "Doublecheck the luggage please. Do we have everything?" Alice seemed to concentrate, as she started to feel out her insides. "Your clothing, my clothing... Repair tools, and... that's it. That's everything, isn't it?" she informed."Yeah, it is. Thanks." you say. You move along, strolling, and Alice re-attatched herself to your back."Hey, what's that?" you hear someone ask, looking at the sky. You look as well.The sky was getting darker, but it was still midday. It wasn't clouds, it wasn't a storm. It was a fleet of Airships, floating out, heading towards the port. And they weren't on your side - they didn't have any asian insignias. You didn't know enough History to really pin down their exact affiliations, but they were enemies. And approaching."They won't attack civilians, won't they?" a young woman asked. "Right? Right?" Then the bells started to ring. "EVERYONE, RETURN TO THEIR ROOMS." the megaphones boomed out.You run to your room, which was merely a set of two-story bunkbeds on one side of a wall, shared with another two people. As you enter, you find your other two "roommates", a young blonde man reading a Bible, and a black man laying on the upper bunkbed, both on the "left" side of the room. You and Alice have been assigned the "right" side."Hello there." the blonde one says, in English, looking up from the Bible a moment. The black one doesn't seem to greet you, and continues to stare into the roof. "Roomate, right? I'm Blake. A pleasure.">Write in

"I'm Ash-smf!-ton" you say, interrupted half way by Alice smacking her lips shamelessly into yours. "I'm Alice" your puppet says, and starts to march out of the room, saying "Gonna get the luggage, Ashton. Like, bathroom. You know the deal." Blake looks back at you, and chuckles.You nod to your puppet. Alice didn't like that people knew she was a puppet, given that she was so live-looking and, well. Actually sentient."The war is a harsh thing, isn't it?" you start off, aiming for small-talk."Yeah. It is." Blake replies, closing his Bible. "But sometimes, things like these are just unavoidable. It's a pity, really. All we can do it fight, survive. Rebuild. Why are you going to Spania by the way, if it isn't impolite to ask?""Looking for better conditions." you reply, briefly."I see." Blake reponds. "I'm going back to Spania. I'm a Missionary, and I was sent to help out some friends having difficulties. Well. They aren't here anymore, so I've travelled to Asia in vain, I guess."You look at the black man "How's -" you start to say. Blake chuckles, raises a finger, and the black man sticks out his tongue at you. "He's a just puppet." he says."Why do you have one?" you ask. "Self-defense." Blake explains. "You have to be crazy to go in a warzone without some kind of weapon.">Write in

>>40051949this has my vote
"Me and Alice are not good fighters, but we have each other. We will find a weapon in Spania" you reply. Blake chuckles again, as you mention Alice. "About your puppet." you start. "How was it made? Like, construction. Wood based? Metal based?""...You seem to know a lot about puppets." Blake replies. "Is the luggage Alice going to bring - Puppets?"You swallow saliva. "No. I'm a repairman. Of puppets. Workshop stuff." you say."Ah-huh." Blake replies. "Interesting."Alice comes back in, with the luggage in the hall, and plants her face on yours again. "I'm back" she notes, and starts to pull the stuff back in. You stand up, and start to help her out as well, and you stuff it under your bed.You notice that Blake has effectively evaded the question about the construction of his puppet, and he blonde man continues speaking "Say, if you can fix puppets, I could call you up in Spania then, if Big Bob here needs some repairs, eh? Heh.""Sure" you reply, with a warm smile."So, Alice." Blake says, as she starts to arrange herself on your side and hug you, as you both seat back down. "How do you handle combat? Isn't it quite dangerous for a young lady like you to be out here in the war, unprotected?""We have each other." you butt in. "If we have each other, we don't need puppets.""I see." Blake replies."By the way, did you know that outside is under attack?" you say. "Airships - tonnes of them.""I know." he replies. "I heard them activate the Acceleration Gears from here as well - I guess that's why they've called everyone in. We're moving pretty fast now. They don't want people flying off deck, now do they? Heh.">Write in

>>40049879>stepdad>And, kid, I'll be honest with you." he adds. "I'll never remember your name. What was it again?"What a great way to start off a quest. He should've asked us if we are a boy or a girl too.
>>40051271>>40050935About this, I see Alice as being voluptuous yet still quite young. She will grow older/taller/etc throughout the story, because reasons, but as she is now, she's pretty much a very generously proportioned young teenager.
>>40052178can I ask how suffering is this going to get compared UMD?
>>40052178and can we apply upgrade for alice at some point in the near future >>40052105ask can he show us around??
>>40052105"I suppose that would be bad for business huh?" reply aloofly. He may have his suspicions but unless he calls us out why bother worrying about it? Besides if he's a missionary then what purpose would it serve to assault others.Lay back and relax while the people who are paid to transport you keep things safe from the gun ships.Ask Blake "Any recommendations for places to travel to once we hit Spania?" alternativelyask Blake "What church are you from?"
Blake smiles at you, starts to resume his reading of the Bible, still seated at the edge of his bunkbed. He gave you the chills, as if he knew about that you had a puppet. He didn't seem to be an immediate threat, but he was someone you decided to keep tabs on for now."Alice" you say. "Let's check out the rest of the ship. We haven't seen much of the inside yet." Alice replies with a nod. You start to walk outside, and without turning to her, you instruct "Alice. Act as if you were human and my lover, as usual."The puppet bonks your head. "I already do that all the time, dummy.""Oh. Right." you correct. "However, if the ship goes down, I'll likely have to go in you again, and you'll have to try to swim to shore. Got it?""Got it." she replied, and pecked your cheek. "However, that will cost you expensive.""Expensive?" you ask"Yeah expensive. In cuddles. I wonder how much..." she clarifies, putting a finger on her lower lip. You sigh.Then, the ship suddenly leaned heavily to a side, sending you and Alice crashing against the wall, as you hear several things bang as well, then it returned to a normal level. Blake peeked out of his room."That was pretty close." he said "They're bombing.""EVERYONE, RETURN TO THEIR ROOMS." the megaphone boomed, and you did as told.(cont)
Once inside, you're all quite silent, until you break the ice. "Any recommendations for places to travel to once we hit Spania?" you ask."Like, touristically?" he asks. "You've got the Alcázar, the...""I mean, like, for a job and such. Where would a good place to start be?" you admit."Oh. Oh." Blake replies. "Well, I guess you could help around the Church? At Puerto de Santa Maria. We do have places for people to stay, but that's only for missionaries, mostly. I could try to get you a room there if you really need it - but just temporarily. We're short on people who can help us out on the missions in the more hazardous areas too, which is why I was sent. Speak with Father about that issue though, I'm not in charge of those things.""Oh. Sounds good." you reply. "I don't know how far you will go just knowing English though. Do you know Spanish?" he asks."No." you reply."Maybe you could find a job as a tour guide, or a translator. Waiter, even." he ponders. "Spania is pretty touristic. It's not the best job, but it's a way to start out, until you find something better.""PREPARE FOR BOARDING." you could hear the megaphone say. "WE'RE GOING TO PERFORM AN EMERGENCY STOP AT SANLÚCAR BEACH.""The beach?" Blake says. "How is a cruiser going to stop at a *Beach* with no port?">Write in
>>40052595>'Emergency stop'. Better brace ourselves for impact.>Looks like it'll be a while before we reach Spania after all.
>>40052595>"PREPARE FOR BOARDING."more importantly who the heck would be boarding?"I was hoping there would be something more to our skillset, such as puppet repair? Or is there really a market for that in Spania?"
>>40052595>laugh maniacally>PREPARE FOR IMPACT>Keep Alice safe or vice-versa
"Maybe we could become waitress and chef eh Alice?" "Spend our days of traveling and exploring?">after alice reminds us that we left to train"Well I suppose we could try to find a dojo or something. Any recommendations Blake?"
You feel the ship bounce with the impact of of several things arriving onto it, and then, you could feel the boat accelerate."'Emergency stop'. Better brace ourselves for impact." you mention, gripping the bed. "Looks like it'll be a while before we reach Spania after all.""Sanlúcar IS at Spania" Blake corrects. "Just several kilometers off course.""I was hoping there would be something more to our skillset, such as puppet repair? Or is there really a market for that in Spania?" you say, continueing what you said before."There is, and plenty. Just not at the coast areas." he says. "Inland - and notably, Seville is all about that stuff. Its a bit of a trip from Sanlúcar though."Then you felt more bounces, and the accleration become stronger. "What's happening?" you ask, feeling the motors below you whirr heavily in a high.pitched clank. "My guess is that we've been boarded, by something." Blake explained, then his eyes widened. "He's forcing the Aceleration magitech, hoping to get to shore for help as soon as possible"Then, you felt it. The boat suddenly stop, and everything slam to a side.-----------------------------Your wounds.Roll 1d100, most convenient of 20-25: Minor wounds25-75: Moderate wounds75-100: Severe woundsAlice's wounds.Roll 1d100, most convenient of 2.0-70: Minor wounds80-90: Moderate wounds90-100: Severe wounds4 rolls total, 2 yours, then 2 hers.

Everything is turned 90 degrees. Blake is next to you, bleeding out of your head, on the wall. "Your head is bleeding " he tells you."Yours too" you reply. Alice coughs, then takes your hand. "We're not dead yet, aren't we?" she asks. "Yeah, I'm ok." you say. "My head just hurts. A lot. My shoulder too.""We should get out of here, quick." Blake says, climbing out and going to the window, which would lead to the "top" of the boat, with Bob, his puppet, following. You go behind him, getting on top of the boat. And there you saw it all. You were on a beach, lined by small houses along the sandy shores, and a few people in bathing suits around the crash site. This must be Sanlúcar. Bob invites you to climb into his arms, and you and Mary comply, and with a long jump, he takes you down to the beach, landing in a explosion of sand, then leaves you off."So, Ashton." Blake says. "Welcome to Spain.">Write in.

>>40053134let find a place to rest
>>40053134"hope the main land is kinder than it's seas!""Mind if we travel with you until you get to your monastery?"
You decide to find a place to rest, and a doctor. You're wounded, beaten up and tired. Somewhere to stay would be nice. ""Mind if we travel with you until you get to your monastery?" you suggest Blake, as a solution for that. He also seemed he needed medical attention."Sure." he said, and you both walked together to the beach guard's location, before the other survivors arrived. Blake knew what he was doing.You got bandaged up, and given a few instructions in Spanish which you didn't understand, which Blake translated to you as "Take it easy.". Alice denied any kind of medical care, showing a constant palm.Together, you traveled with him in a large Motor-Carriage to Arcos de la Frontera, together with a bunch of other touristic-looking people, in shorts, bringing beach toys, and picnic baskets.Blake explained you're at Cádiz, a province of Spania. Seville - the main location of your interest was further ahead. He left you at the bus stop, and explained which bus you had to take to get there. He would go to the Monastery, but that he visited Seville's church quite often, given that he had friends there and that it was fairly close to Arcos de la Frontera. He also exhanged your Japanese money for Spanish money - Pesetas, at a booth. You then took the bus he indicated, thanking Blake for his help, and stood in the vehicle, feeling awkward in a new country. The culture was different, more lively, more expressive - nothing like the stoic Japanese ways you were used to. You didn't like being close to people here - it was like if they had no sense of personal space. Just like Alice, who was licking your ears right now.You arrive at Seville Bus Station, feeling lost. Blake did indicate that Puppeteering was pretty big here, you just didn't know where to start. A university? Some puppet workshop? Maybe you could look for a job at some touristic service?>Write in.

>>40053673agreeing with this"Alice how are you holding up?""Lets see if we can find work at one of the workshops around here yeah?"
The people seem... Friendly. You appraoch a young man, and ask, in English "Do you know where any Puppet workshops are?""Oh, you mean... Marionettas?" he replies, in crude english. "Marionetta, place, here." and he points towards a road. "That be the Marionetta road" then his accent shifts to perfect Spanish "Calle de los Hilos. Allí."You nod, and bow, and he chuckles, and doesn't bow back. Maybe they don't do that kind of thing here?You go to "Calle de los Hilos", with Alice holding you hand, nervous. She was pretty intimidated as well, you notice. You see fancy carriages, drawn by horses move around, and motorcars as well. The buildings and architecture was nothing like Japan's, but equally beautiful. Seville was quite a visually amazing place.You find rows of workshops of men hammering anvils some doorways, yelling things happily to one another in that odd language. Shyly, yet stoic, you go forth and greet one of them."Hello:" you say, to a rugged man, who was carving out wood. "I'm.. Looking for a job.""Job?" he says, tinted in a spanish accent. "Youngsters need to work, yes! You know how to work Marionetta?""Yes." you reply. "I can prove it if you'd like.""Good!" he replies. "I'm Sergio. Come in over, make me a hand. If you make a good, basic hand, I will consider your proposal. Deal?""Deal." you agree.>DC:25 Minor Sucess, DC:50 Moderate, DC:75 Major>Highest of first three rolls of 1d100's

>64,30,51: 61 -> ModerateYou take out your luggage, and your own toolbox. Alice, quietly, stands aside, and lets you work. "You can use our tools, boy" Sergio says, apologetically. "...And where are you from?""Japan. I'm Ashton Soo" you say, as you take a look at their set of tools, which looked completely alien to you. You needed your own, Japanese tools to make your things. Skillfully carve out and assemble a hand, you give it a touch of incense, and hook it to a basic, testing magicore. Then, you ignited its mana, and made it move, making it wave. "Is this good?" you ask."Ah, yes. Very good, Ahshton." he says. "But, your tools... They look different. This is how they do things in Japan, I guess, but if you're going to work here, at Sergio's, you must use our tools, and work as a team. No lone wolves - here, we're all part of one big craftsmen, yes? Can you agree to that?""I.. Guess so." you say."Very good!" he cheers. "Come with me, signing contract, and all that stuff."After a trip to his office, and signing papers in spanish which you pretended to understand, he led you out, and gave you a handshake. "Over here, at Calle de los Hilos, we are practically fighting over good Marionetta workers. So many leave to go to other countries to fight! Such pity! Anyway. You come tomorrow, here. In the morning, eight o'clock, ready to work. Alright?""Alright" you say, as Sergio comes forth and grabs your hand to shake it. Then, he went and gave two kisses at the air around each side of Alice's cheek."What are you doing!?" you say, flustered. Alice just stood here, paralyzed in embarassment."It's spanish greeting!" he says. "Men shake hands, women get "dos besos.". Don't you know?""Dos... Besos?" you wonder."Yes. Spanish greeting." he repeats."Oh."You stand outside of the Workshop, pretty satisfied. You still have a whole evening to do things, and you have a job now.>Write in

A hotel maybe?"Sergio rubs his chin, and says "Yeah, there is that lives on the visitng university profesors and such, quite close to here. Also is cheap."The large man then writes out a simple map for you, given that he has caught on that you're pretty lost, as the "Japanese Boy" he calls you to be. You follow it, and it leads you to a large, pretty building, the Alfonso XII building.You walk inside, and you ask for a room. The woman behind the desk that speaks a surprisingly perfect English nods, and grants you a room to stay for the night, asking for an amount of pesetas you really can't mentally convert to yens, but you accept anyway. Satisfied, you go and leave your luggage there, and Alice starts to try out the bounciness of the beds.It's late evening now.>Write in

You decide to explore the city's night culture, as you notice that most places didn't close as late as they did in Japan. It was like if Spaniards slept later than usual. So they did - and they mostly stayed around bars, drinking and eating tapas as they joke and speak. They spoke so much in comparison to Japanese people, they were so loud, so open, so social!There were a few doors with large men in front of them with upbeat music coming from the inside, but given your limited knowledge of spanish, and your current Japanese culture shock, you decide to play it safe, and walk around. The city was lit up beautifully, or obnoxiously, depending on how you look at it. Every now and then, you could see a couple walk with each other, or groups of adults having a nice chat with other, as they decice to go to either that bar or the other to spend the night. They also said "Joder" a lot. You wondered what it meant - men, women, children and the elderly all seemed to use it in nearly every sentence. It seemed like an important word to know.You return home, and decide to call it in for the day. You go up to your room, and as usual, feed Alice's Infinite Drive, as you have been doing for last few years, before going to sleep. You focus your hand on her back, and start to manually operate the maturing system your dad made - The Infinite Drive, the mechanism designed to create the ultimate puppet, by simulating human natural development.Alice: Infinite Drive StatusAge: Young TeenHeight: 156 cmBust: 76 cmWaist: 50 cmHips: 73 cmPower: 10/100 (to unlock next Infinite Drive upgrade)>You have 10 cm to distribute among her height, b/w/h.

"I'll never get used to that" she claims.After a spontaneous kiss from Alice, you both go to sleep to your beds.
