You don't panic, but you aren't settled. Djanna is hurt, and here eyes are kind of unfocused. You don't like that. Her skin is warm, and the smell of blood is starting to make your head swim and you just don't know what to do. You think of your pack, and the medicine box, but with the dragon girl out of operation you don't know if you could actually do anything for her. You're confused, you're alone, you're scared, and you just... you just want help! You throw back your head and howl desperately, instinctively knowing this will bring older uncles... aunts... maybe mama and papa.You are unprepared for what answers."FIND WHERE THE LANCE PIERCES THE SHADOW, AND THERE BRING LIFE TO MY FLOWER!"You cower as the voice cracks over you, throwing yourself over Djanna, who winces in pain. The feeling of fear - and of awesome power - fades almost as soon as it spoke. You hear thunderous, rippling cracks all through the woods, from where you are and leading deep into the darkness. Here and there, in tiny bits, the canopy has shifted and split, leaving small pinpricks of sunlight to shine through, motes of dust caught in the air, suspended still as if frozen in time. Something moves through you, and a shiver runs up your spine. You feel something has changed in the woods. The monsters have gone, for now, and the air tastes sweet and feels warm. You look down at your companion and take a slow, shallow breath. You lay her down carefully, moving to reverently gather your possessions and pack them softly, binding the packs together to wear them around your neck. You move back to her side and scoop her up carefully. She whispers softly, unfocused eyes trying to meet yours, as she reaches a hand to your fuzzy cheek.
>>40224996"You're so... bright..." She slumps limp in your arms, unconscious. You turn back to the path revealed to you by the pinpoints of light, and set out on a careful walk along the way. The forest floor here is oddly even. Here and there, through the moss and loam, you see shocks of granite with slivers of amber and garnet caught in the cross-section. Each footfall feels solid, sturdy, as though the path were waiting here for you alone to walk it. All about you, the shadow deepens, but it simply makes the slivers of light that much brighter and easier to follow.Soon enough, you move through a pair of trees, their branches grown into an archway, and before you are the crumbling walls of an ancient, moss-covered tower of brown stone, the exterior fluted and seamless. The trees have not grown against it, wreathing it in a ring of uninterrupted sunlight. You carefully move into the sun, laying Djanna flat on the ground before the tower. Now... what was that about a flower?>Write-In

>>40225019Look around for a door into the tower.
>>40225019Tower delving seems to be the winner. Writing.
>>40225019You remove your blanket from your pack and roll it up, gently laying Djanna's head on it before you scurry about in the clearing around the tower, desperately looking for some kind of flower. As you move, you note deep sconces in the wall at ground-level, slightly above your own height. A quick jump and impressive upper body strength allow you to peer in. Most are empty, but a few carry what smells like oil of the kind uncle Baltas used to keep his lamp lit. "Better than stonelamps. Warmer! Not so harsh." You drop back down, having taken fully ten minutes to circle the base of the thing and finding now flowers of any kind. You whine as you return to Djanna, chasing away a few curious creatures who had slipped from the underbrush to investigate the unconscious dragon girl. You settle beside her, tail still and ears back. You reach out and oh wow, she's burning up.You rise again, pacing back and forth, trying to spur your brain into action. C'mon, c'mon, you're slow but you aren't dumb... maybe inside the tower? You look up at it with a whimper, and it seems to stretch clear up to the heavens. A cracking like thunder reaches you on the ground moments before you hear a loud "WHUMP" as a piece of the same brown stone slams into the ground a dozen or so feet away, leaving a deep puncture in the soil. Here and there, now that you're looking for them, you see other such fallen stones, covered so thickly with moss that they blend in with the rest of the environment.
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>40225376You scoop Djanna up, unwilling to leave her where she might be in danger, and start once again circling the tower. After two minutes, you finally find it. A massive door sunken into the side, concealed by hanging moss and old vines. The plants seem strange, as if they shouldn't be in this sort of area, with the snow and the cold, but you again force the troubling thought to the back of your mind and once more leave your companion to recover your gear before you force the doors open on growling stone hinges.The rush of stale air passes by you like the earth itself is exhaling, and you feel a sense of menace from above. The lowest room, though, seems safe enough. It is empty save for a brass brazier in the center, and a pair of barred iron doors leading to staircases up and down respectively. The bars are rusted, and from them hang ancient locks corroded with age. You could easily burst them with a good kick, but for now they are not your concern. You settle Djanna back down inside, the girl's breath coming shorter as she holds her upper arm where she was bitten, the flesh having begun to swell and look rather angry red instead of her usual muted amber. A quick search of the room reveals a few dull discs of brown metal, and in the brazier some strange, dusty bricks of what feels like dried herbs.>Try the door going up>Try the door going down>Write-in

>>40225396"Flower... flower... what the hell could possibly-" That's when it hits you. You remember the mirror, and thinking you looked like a skinny torch. Your mother called you a winter rose.Rose. Torch.Fire.You scramble over to your pack and unbind the mouth of it, reaching in and pulling out a couple gold-colored nodules of sparkstone and a flat striker of iron, rushing back to the brazier and pulling out the bricks. You whine, hoping against hope this will work as you clap the dust off ACKPTH! You shouldn't have looked right at them when you did that!Never the lest, dust clinging to your greatcoat, you clean off the last brick of incense and upend the brazier to shake the dust and cobwebs out of it before replacing the whole mess and striking desperately at it with the firestarter. You make a few good looking sparks, but none of them take. You whimper, cast your eyes to Djanna, and then a flash of thought hits you. You set the firestarter aside and bare your claws, shredding the incense into smaller pieces before you take up the starter again and vigorously begin trying to light the brazier. A spark... another... and slowly, a fire begins spreading through the aromatic pieces. You smile, and then it turns to a look of awe as the fire turns from red to brilliant white before your eyes, seeming to leap and dance along the incense and thin whorls of fragrant smoke rise off it. You step back, sinking to your knees as the fire grows taller and taller, almost impossibly so for the small amount of tinder."THROUGH YOUR HANDS, MY MIGHT AND WILL."If this isn't permission, you don't know what is. You rise slowly, keeping your tail down, ears folded, and knees bent, an eye on the fire at all times as you cross to your sister, laboring to breathe upon the stones. You kneel down beside her, and with a soft breath you invoke the name of the Sun as you lay your paws upon her shoulder.>Roll 1d100

>>40225687You feel the heat of the fire at your side, but more than a physical sensation, you feel the fire in your soul. It does not burn to harm, but shines like a brilliant beacon - both casting away darkness, and drawing those who want for its light to you. You can almost put it into words, but fall somehow short of it. It's beautiful in a way you can't describe, and you can't help but shed tears as you feel that light flow through your paws and into Djanna. She tenses and hisses under your ministrations, but slowly begins to relax as the sickness from the creature's bite leaves her. Her scales right themselves somewhat, and the pinprick wounds close all but completely. She opens her eyes, looking up at you as she draws in a breath, deep and steady. She takes your hand in hers, whispering your name.She then sits quickly, eyes wide as she calls out your name though it still sounds like a whisper.You black out.================================You come to what feels like hours later, Djanna having secured the door and made more of a campfire of dead branches. The brazier glows dimly, the incense long since burned out of it, as she sits examining the hatchets you'd recovered from the redcap. You rise, dislodging the blanket she'd wrapped you in, and put a hand to your head. Your claws gleam in the firelight, and even in that dim illumination the brands on your paws are clear as day. "What... what the..."
>>40225969Djanna rises, shaking her head and gently presses you back down against the floor. "Just rest for now. I don't know what you did, but you scared me when you passed out. Just rest, all right?" You shake your head, ears flapping as you sit up, pressing against her hand and easily dismissing the dragon girl's attempts to keep you prone. You hop to your feet, shrugging out of the blanket enthusiastically, tail wagging. You feel better than ever! She growls lightly at you, but you simply scoop her up in a hug and spin her about, unable to contain yourself. You look over her shoulder, now lightly bandaged, and ask her about her leg. She tilts her head, then reaches down to probe at the wound. She sounds surprised when she informs you it doesn't hurt at all, and after pulling away the bloody bandages reveals that wound, too, has all but closed over."How did you do that?" she asks, eyes narrowing curiously. You just shrug and bound over to the two doors. You still feel something ominous behind them, but at this moment you don't really care much. You bound between the two before finally settling on the one with the stairs leading upward, grabbing the lock and giving it a quick yank.>Roll 1d100

>>40226103yeah, i've seen that
>>40225984The lock rattles and holds steady, though you thought you felt something crack inside of it. With a snarl and another jerk, you pull it clean of the door with a grin. Djanna sucks in a breath as the door falls inward with a loud "CLANG," the lock and rust being the only things that had been holding it upright for quite some time now. Deep below, behind the iron door, you hear a high-pitched staccatto shriek. Well... that got SOMETHING'S attention."What are you doing!?" Djanna hisses, walking over to you and poking you in the shoulder angrily. You don't know why she's so upset, really. You wag your tail back and forth and with a sheepish smile hold up the lock."Opening the door?" You hear something go BANG, like metal on stone, on the floor above, causing you both to flinch in sudden fright. Djanna looks apprehensive, while your curiosity is piqued. You make to move upward, but Djanna grabs your arm firmly. You look back at her and see a look of terror in her face. She shakes her head, silently begging you not to make her go along. You feel her hand trembling on your arm. Despite the fact she's taller than you, you're reminded that, even if only by a few days, she's younger than you are. You wonder for a moment if maybe whatever happened last night - whatever made you this big - is having an abnormal effect on your bravado. >Coax/Cajole Djanna into coming with you (Write-In)>Let her stay here if she wants to.

The way she sets her jaw, her brows knit, that shake of the head... if she were furrier, it would be like looking at your mother. You whine, shoulders slumping as your tail and ears drooping. "We're not going. We've already been almost eaten once today, I don't want to find out what else this crazy place has in mind for us.""But... but... Djanna, it's just-" You whine, looking between her and the door, tail wagging happily."I said 'no!'" She stomps a clawed foot, her tail slapping the stones for emphasis, like thunder in the enclosed space. Again, in the depths, that weird rapid-fire noise. That... does it sound like it's getting closer? You open your mouth to point it out, but she makes a shushing motion with her free hand."Nadia, you may be stronger than me, and faster, and older, and... and all of that, but you're not smart!" Well, that hurts... even if it was honest. You pull away from her, straightening up and looking her in the eye, puffing out your cheeks in a huff. She puts her hands on her hips, continuing into her tirade. "We're kids! I mean, I know you probably think this is all big fun and everything, but it's dangerous! We have to take it serious!" There's a childish whine in her voice."Then why are you tryin' to act like my mama!?" you fire back, pointing a paw - with your claw sheathed - at her. You feel the hairs on the back of your neck rise a little. "If I wanna go, you can't stop me, an' I wanna go! Who knows what's up there? It could be somethin' neat!""Do you even remember why we're out here in the first place!?"
>>40226565Oh, that... THAT hurt. You round on her, ready to shout, maybe even throw a punch. How could you forget? It's... it's because you... you think of mama and papa and the kin and the warren and the slimes and it kind of swirls around in your head and when you try to put it into perspective it doesn't fit together. Papa wanted to protect you? Get you away from mama? But she didn't seem to really want to hurt anyone... but she threatened Sylea, and-"Ahem."You turn quickly, looking over your shoulder at the door to the depths. Standing in the shadowed entryway is a child in torn, soiled rags, it's mid-length black hair knotted and unkepmt. Through the mop of hair pokes a pair of dark triangular ears, tufted white, and hanging behind it is not one, but two tails, thick and plush and likewise black with white tufts."Hi, sorry to interrupt. My name's Emma. Mind letting me out so I don't die?"
>>40226581Mind not interrupting someone's conversation?God. What a bitch.

>>40228086Just as you didn't notice it at first, I assume everybody else missed it as well and zoned in on triangle shaped ears.
>>40228104I have looked it up, I have seen one, thick is accurate though plush is not a word i would use to describe it..
>>40227995Well, foxes ARE more closely related to cats than to dogs.
>>40228199Pretty sure foxes are canines, anon.
>>40228199The biological family Canidae /ˈkænɨdiː/  is a lineage of carnivorans that includes dogs, wolves, foxes, jackals, and many other extant and extinct dog-like mammals.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CanidaeI know it's wikipedia. But.. come on anon.
>>40228247Pretty sure your face is a canine.I don't know how, but yeah. I got that quote exactly backwards.Still. Foxes are quite commonly chased by dogs.Case in point: fox hunts.

>>40228199>>40228613I think Hyenas are what anon meant to say. probably. Though Hyenas are still fairly far removed. also hyenas have what is essentially a ridiculously long vagina. seriously, nature should stop
>>40229126IIRC Female Spotted Hyena's have a pseudo penis that dwarf's the males real penis and tends to make it harder for the male to perform during mating season.

>>40229308 yep, that pseudopenis contains the vagina/urethra/ is the clitoris, birth must be unpleasant.
>>40229625I really hope you're joking Lotus......
>>40229625Ah, also a fact about them. They're matriarchal much like Meerkat's.
I apologize for derailing everything. I just like animals...
>>40229779I'm just wondering how this came from a misinformed comment about foxes.
>>40229779Liking animals is fine, but liking animal penises and vaginas is going to get you in social trouble if you talk about it with normal people.
>>40229779My fault, i was bored, someone said foxes and meant Hyenas, i said hyenas and brought up how hyenas belong on /d/. I should never be left alone.
>>40229727I thinknit would be interesting to see how Nadia would react to her feral cousins.
>>40229937That is actually interesting. That should be a thing later in the quest.

>>40228086Two tails makes me think cat.Also as someone else stated.Maine coons have fluffy everything.
>>40231282Ya know, I'll let Nadia think what she thinks. She's a sweet girl, but kind of dim.
>>40231282Oh my god.I want to lick it.
>>40231548Clearly we just need an actual older sister to teach us about the word.
>>40231548And with coloring like this. I can see the cat.Granted it's a fox now that I know. But.. as you say. She's a bit dim.. and that's part of what makes her so goddamn adorable. Plus she's still extremely young.
>>40231577I was kind of worried how you guys would take Nadia not having a ready source of info about monster biology, etc. Glad you're taking it in stride.
>>40231609Aaaand that is officially Emma. Just needs a second tail.
>>40231610It's totes adorbs.
>>40231628Ah. Welp.http://konachan.com/post?tags=nanako_%28shiroganeusagi%29Alternatively Google "shirogane usagi nanako"She's a cutie.
>>40231751"All right, you guys, we're in agreement: nobody can know about this. Keep your silence, and I promise you fish for life. All right? All right." Emma nodded to herself as Admiral Bootsie took a playful swipe at her hair.
>>40231807That didn't happen! And she is not cute!
>>40231880Anon, in my experience, whenever you disagree with someone calling you cute, they will keep saying it.
>>40231912Talk shit, get bit!
>>40231957Just a bit.
Love interest acquired
>>40232147But they just met?
>>40232184Interest not partner, though id prefer to hold off on love interests for a little while at least, it not even thread 10. and im fairly sure nadia hasnt hit puberty.
You stare at the young girl in shock for several long moments before your tail begins to wag. Sure, she looks bad and smells worse, but she's just so..."Cute!" You bound over to her, crouching down while your tail flails all about. Djanna calls after you, trying and failing to maintain her grasp on your arm. She hurries over, culling at you to keep you out of arm's length of the girl. You stay crouched where you are, eyes fixed on the small creature. She doesn't seem in the least put out by you looking at her as though she were some oddity, but one of her ears flicked when you squealed at her."Uh, sure. If you say so. Listen, I don't mean to be pushy, but she's going to be really angry when she realizes I slipped away, so if I could just ask you to open the gate here for me, please? I really don't want to be down here when she-" The stacatto shriek now becomes a full-fledged whistling scream, and the tip of one of Emma's tails flicks in irritation. She looks back down the stairway, and your ears pick up the shambling of feet on stone. "Well... lovely.">Release her>Don't release her>Ask fir more informationMainly seeing what trying to post an update from my phone looks like
>>40232236>Release herWe have to sniff the cat invasively Lotus. I was promised CAT CAT CAT CAT CAT CAT.
>>40232236>Release herShe's too cute to not.I love kitties.

>>40232456Yeah, it's been a while. And captcha deleted the second attempt.
>>40232236Her voice is flat. Utterly calm. However, there's a smell in the air you don't like and it's not her. You look down at the lock, your row with Djanna all but forgotten as you grab hold of the lock. The dragon girl takes your hand and shakes her head quickly. Emma looks at her impassively."Nadia, this coukd be a trap. What if she's a monster? What if she tries to eat us?" Djanna looks at the small girl apprehensively."Her fur would get caught in my teeth and you look gamey. Good enough? Now, can we hurry up please? If you're really worried about it you can kill me later. Better a total stranger than her."That's enough for you. With a hard wrench, the lock snaps loose in your ha d and you swing the door open, hinges squealing liud enough to make you and Emma whine involuntarily, and Djanna to cover her ears. Emma scurries out, grabbing the door and shoving it closed once she's through. You inhale deeply, and again, and again. She smells like she hasn't bathed in some time, and underneath it there's an odd stench, like that of rot amd death, but even through that disgusting boquet, there's something else. A hint of autumn leaves and exotic spices. You almost don't notice her tugging on the arm of your coat."Hey. Thanks. Now can we lock this up and get out of here?"You look down at the broken lock in your hand, the loop snappes where it had rusted through and broken beyond any hope of repair. Well... This isn't good.A sing-song croak from the bottom of the stairs lilts upward. "Emma, deeeeear... Come home, now. I'm not angry, I proooomisssse...">Remain silent>Call out (Write-In)>Run>Prepare to fight. (Write-in)

>>40232577>RunWe have a kitty that needs to recover. We can always come back and punch her later.
>>40232577It's a padlock, right?Just put the bar through and bend it into place, using the back of the hatchet as a hammer. Permanently locked. Problem solved.
>>40232670Definitely an option.
>>40232670Sounds like a good idea, do it
>>40232577>>RunTry and be quiet about it, too.
>>40232670By the way, this is part of why I was so fervent about grabbing the hatchets.Fuckers are incredibly useful.
>>40232670I'm not really for it because it's going to make more noise... and I doubt that was holding it in place. Seems more like it was keeping the kitty trapped.

>>40232921....god damnit. I wasted a nat 1.It feels wrong to say that.>>40232922Can we use my nat 1 for Djanna instead? BEcause it looks like we might have to carry both the dragon and the fox.
>>40232922Seriously, Djanna? Seriously?
>>40232922Dammit girl you disgrace your species!
>>40232577>A sing-song croak from the bottom of the stairs lilts upward.Guys.. we Opened the Gate.. .Above. Not below.
>>40232949And yet people at first glance will think she's the better of the two.It's totaly because she is just taller not that she is a dragon.
>>40232922Dragonsis can't be this clumsy...
>>40233017Well.. she can. She just won't live very long.
>>40232577You don't have time to think - just react. You stoop and grab Emma, whispering to Djanna to grab the gear. She nods and you rush to the door, covering two steps for what would have been one before your change. The girl narrows her eyes with an indignant "Hey! What do you think you're doing!?" But she still clings to your greatcoat, cheeks crimson in shock. As you duck outside into the gathering twilight and dash back toward the sunlit path. It's only midway down that you realize Djanna isn't with you. You skid to a stop and turn, whimpering, before you charge back. Emma looks up at you with disbelief in her eyes. "Why are we turning around? She's going to be back there waiting for us! Oh... oh, wait. Damn it, I didn't notice... I'm sorry. Hold on, let me down. I can help.">No time!>Oblige>She?>Write-in

>SORRYFORGOTSOMETHINGGOTTAGO.Kobold\Garou runs ins, grabs dragon and runs out.
>>40233092First two bouts, Djanna continues to suck. Then Djanna starts to come ahead. Maybe she unlocks her inner pyromancer and learns undead aren't so great against fire.
>>40233107First four were Djanna (attack/defense/attack/defense) versus the mysterious stranger's same.

>>40233367I'm a furry gamer.The two are synonymous. ...also I'm horrified over the earlier Hyena discussion. I'm just, shit man. Shit.
>>40233404Yeah. See now I just see you as an attention whore.I mean that's what name fags are.But taking the time to let everyone know that you're a "furry gamer," really?
>>40233327See, with her steel mental fortitude and complete ineptitude at any physical task I can't help but see her as a giant adorable nerd.

>>40233042You shake your head and Emma scowls, trying to wriggle out of your grip. "Lemme go! I can help, damn it! C'mon! Hey, listen to me!" She squeaks indignantly, but you just growl softly at her as you tighten your grasp and speed on. You return to the tower, dashing in through the open door to find a tall, slender figure - vaguely frminine, but sagging in all the wrong places with slightly oozing, putrescent-yellow skin and empty eye sockets -choking an unconscious and badly bruised Djanna. "Where... Where is my pet? Where have you taken her? I want her back, please. I miss her terribly. Can't you see how upset I am? I might start to cry. Please... Please..." The juxtaposition of her utter calm, and the trembling of her muscles as she continues attempting to squeeze the life out of your sister churns your stomach. Emma has grown very still in your arms, barely breathing. Her yellow eyes are half-lidded, watching the undead creature closely.Djanna's cheeks and lips are turning purple-blue.

>>40233624Well hopefully that's the only trait he shares with Archelon.

>>40233671Not our fault she rolled shit.
>>40233671We trusted her to followNow we always have to carry her around till she proves she can handle herself.
>"I don't want to hurt you pup."At this point I'm not sure you can.That or she only rolls well against us. She can only hurt the ones she loves.
>>40233671We didn't, she just rolled like complete ass.
>>40233525You stoop, letting Emma hop out of your arms. She scowls back at you in irritation, then whispers a few quick words. You blink, and she's gone! What th- nevermind, no time!
