You reach out and lay a hand on Djanna's arm. She frowns but snaps her mouth closed, swallowing deeply. The light dies on her lips, a few tongues of plasma flowing over her lips until the power fully subsides. You hold onto your sister till your trembling passes, Nurrim not having moved from in front of you."I say we get out of here. Now." the older kitsune hisses once Malachi has vanished amongst the trees. You can't help but nod, reaching behind you with your other hand and feeling about for Emma until you get a handful of silky, triangular ear. You pull her against you, hugging her tightly. Finally, you stop shivering, and the four of you set off again, moving along the path.==========================================="That's gods-damned spooky." Maya reclines on her bed, the four of you seated where her piles of aromatic materials once sat. Her goblin minions are bustling about, packing up the remainders of their possessions. Ice-axe bullies Dagger as he folds up Maya's clothes, while Spear and Hatchet pack things into a larger chest."Humans really are monsters..." Emma shudders. You pet her gently, her tails puffed up. Maya nods agreement, her tail swinging gently behind her. "I don't want to think so, but... it's starting to seem that way." Djanna nods agreement, and Maya nods along with her."It's like I told you: They treat you like shit, unless you have something they want, and once they get it out the door you go. Burn 'em all, I say. Hey, dragon girl. We can make that happen, right?""'Djanna.' And no... better to just ignore them, I think..."You shake your head, whining. All this talk is so draining."Mama! Mama! Ready-ready! Yes, we ready-ready!" Dagger skips over to her, all smiles. She glares at him and rises languidly from the bed."What did I tell you about calling me that in front of company, 'dear?'"He yelps and scurries back. Ice-axe and Hatchet have grabbed the chest, Spear supporting it from the side.
>>40605632"Well, what are we waiting for? Lead on!"==========================================="WHATS IN DA HELLS HAPPENDS TA YAS!?"Garush crushes you, Djanna, and Emma to his breast in a single hug. Your bones crunch and you whine loudly, the air being forced from your lungs and your ears aching. "Ya looks likes ya beens throughs hells! Ya clothes is all torns ups, an' is dat bloods!? Da hells!? Nurrim, da hells dids ya dos to my girls? An who da hells is ya?!" He levels a massive green finger at Maya, and she bats it away almost casually. Or tries to."Keep your fancy shorts on, green man, they're fine." The little demoness quips, other hand on her hip. "They got a little roughed up, but nothing they couldn't handle. Just got shot, beaten with an axe, an-""SHOTS?! BEATENS!?" Garush looks like he's somewhere between a meltdown and a berserker fit. You feel his heart pounding in his chest before he sets you down, kneeling in front of you and gathering the three of you together. "Listen. Who hurtsed yas. I'll takes 'ems aparts piece by pieces an scatters 'ems to th' seven seas.">Tell him everything>It's fine, but can we please relax for a bit?>Introductions>Write-In
>>40605648> Tell him everything
>>40605648>>Tell him everything
>>40605648>Tell him everythingLook for some cotton to stuff into our ears. Things will get loud now.
>>40605648>Garush is skinned later, we find him still living.
>>40605648>Tell him everything>Bu-but calm down ok, just a bit...Cover your ears folks.
>>40605772>He doesn't seem to mind."It's a bits breezys tadays, innit?"
>>40605745>>40605772Hopefully, he doesn't try to go after Malachi, because yeah, I pretty much see it going like that, aside from the still living part.
>>40605799I can't tell if your full of shit, or if Garush is that terrifying.
>>40605836>Nadia introduces him to her eventual mate before leaving on some errand.>She returns a week later and Garrush is painting the bunkhouse red, whistling a sailor's tune
>>40605648>"Garush! Yelling!">Introductions>Tell him as you walk back to the city
>>40605648>Tell him everythingSo, what are the odds he's heard about Malachi before? I'm betting pretty high.
>>40605836He's joking. When the time comes, he'll kill off Garush for the cheap heat and that'll be that.
>>40605836Some day soon, we're going to run across somebody who recognizes garush, and they're just gonna run away screaming "The green death has come! Run for your lives!"

>>40606028>>40606029Within a second of one another...
>>40605648"I'll tell you everything, but Garush?""Yus, Nadias?"You whine and give a little pout. "Yelling..."He leads you all inside,and you start explaining the events of the past few weeks: meeting Maya, meeting Nurrim in the woods, the hunters, and your flight back to Dvotysk.Garush listens quietly, but his fist clenches around his stein when you mention the hunters, the wood splintering and his beer spilling out onto the carpet. Maya nods appreciatively, and Djanna glares daggers at her."Dey... dids... whats... to yas?" His voice is quiet. Deathly so. He sets the glass calmly on the desk, rises carefully onto his false leg, and turns to the mantlepiece. He reaches above, pulling down his cutlass and strapping it onto his belt before turning for the door. "You girls stays heres. Ah'll bes backs in a weeks or twos.""Calm down, greenskin, they're probably long gone by now.""I gots a names, blueberry.""Oh, is it 'grandpa?' Or maybe hopalong?"Garush glares at her for a long moment before the corner of his lip quirks up and he snorts. "Ya cheeky littles monkey.""Look, don't kick the bee's nest. As great as I think it would be for another human or three to get buried, it's a long way back across the mountains for a kill that might not even still be there, right?""Nothin' doin's. Dey hurt mah girls, an dey's gonna dies.""Fair, but hey: How about we eat first? I haven't had a good meal in a long time, and you look like you're loaded.""Maya!" Djanna yelled, stomping a foot. You can't help but snicker a bit."What!? It's true!">We should... (Write-In)>Talk to... (Write-In)>Other
>>40606278>We should... (Write-In)Eat. The blue berry has a point. That's a good name.
>>40606278> We should...> Live a quiet boring life, away from the asshole skin changers and who knows what else is out there.> Mid-city bold quest is go
>>40606278>"Look Garush, we want to settle this too. But not right now, okay? Let's just eat, get a good night's sleep, think things over in the morning right?">Insist on sharing his bed to make sure he doesn't slip away at night
>>40606278>We shouldGet a nice meal and relax for a while. This adventure is (almost literally) killing us.
Garush is quickly becoming my favorite character. I want Nirrum/Garrush antics
>>40606278>We should... (Write-In)Probably rest for a little while.I like Maya. Is she going to be our token evil party member?
>>40606386Depends on your definition of evil.
>>40606373>Insist on sharing his bed to make sure he doesn't slip away at nightOh, my.
>>40606483It's the only way to make sure Garush' rage doesn't overtake him whilst we're all unconscious...
Eating and relaxing have it. Writing.
>>40606278> We should...> Eat a nice, family meal> Encourage Garush that we need his guidance and support more than revenge right now (with puppy tears)> Get a good night's sleepNext day:> Get armor and more training> Get Maya set up with her shop> Let Djana help her settle up> Help the kitties adjust to city lifeThough really (>>40606349) fits far, far better. Seriously, getting threatened by something like that, being crushed and then almost sold into slavery, then finally threatened with "If you get stronger, I will kill you", hate to say it, but that kills the adventurous spirit.I want to see Lotus write himself out of that corner.
>>40606503Sleep- berserking.He walks down the street in his smalclothes, eyes shut, snoring, slack-jawed, swinging a lamppost at anything that moves.
>>40606530Solution, apply dragon to keep from moving.
>>40606278"Look Garush, we want to settle this too. But not right now, okay?" You cross to stand beside him, laying a hand on his arm. You reach out and gently take the sword from his belt, letting the sheathed tip of it rest on the floor. "Let's just eat, get a good night's sleep, think things over in the morning. Okay?"He looks ready to object, but your quivering eyes and the set of your lips make him sigh. He turns and lays a massive hand on your head. "All rights, pups. I promises, nothins drastics yets. Dey lives anudder days." He doesn't seem happy about the fact, but he still scoops you up into a one-armed hug, cradling you against his chest. "Come on, girls. Follows alongs. Lets gos eats."================================="-and then, I kid you not, just as the guy is about to take the riding crop to his wife, Garush just grabs the guy's horse, hefts it up over his shoulders, and throws it at him! Killed the guy instantly. The funny part? The horse AND the woman survived!""You've got to be lying. There's no way a man could lift a damned horse." The traveller took a deep drink and set his mug back down on the table with a clunk, belching."Swear it on the cathedral bell. Some upstart minor lord from the south, thought he was going to teach his wife a lesson in front of the gods and all. Garush isn't a man, anyway. He's the greenskin what runs the bunkhouse by the harbor.""A monster? Bah. No wonder he settled it like a bru-"A hand grabbed the man behind the neck, forcing his head down against the table. The gruff old owner of the inn stood over the traveller, scowling."Say another unkind word about the cap'n in my house, an' there're ten men at least who're gonna have somethin' ta say about it."You look over, frowning, then look back at Garush who's hiding behind his mug, drinking deeply.
>>40606923"Did you really kill a man with a horse?"He swallows and puts the empty mug down, clearing his throat. "Well... nots likes I meants tos. Buts I didn'ts wanna hits him. I means... he coulda surviveds the horse.""Hah!" Maya slams her fist against the table, laughing. "Holy shit, that's amazing!""Watch yas language, little lady. It ain't propah.""Really? A sailor's giving me shit about my language?" She takes a bite of the sausage on her plate.Djanna's grumbling her way through a plate of eggs, and you and Emma sit side-by-side, working your way through your own meals."So, girls." Garush lets the matter drop, turning to the three of you. "I thinks we needs ta talks. I don't thinks I likes the ideas of you goin's outs agains. Its too dangerous, an' if yer gonnas be gettins roughed ups...""Is that really fair, though?" Nurrim interjects, leaning back against the wall, Garush's borrowed shirt flowing around her like a dressing gown. "I know they seem young, but to be honest, they're stronger than you'd think. Nadia killed an owlbear with her bare hands, with Emma's illusions distracting it, and Djanna killed a giant snake practically by herself."Garush shakes his head. "I don'ts wanna hears its. It's too dangerous, an' there's no needs fors its. Dese shrines? It's all justs boogedyboo.">We need to go to the shrines eventually.

>>40606947> Maybe you're right...Is what I want to say, but it's not fun when the characters actually respond accordingly to the gritty grimdark. That said.> We have to go to the shrines eventually.> First, we need armor and weapons and to learn how to use both
>>40606947>We need to go to the shrines eventually. It's what mom expects before we go home.>If we train more, we won't have to worry about it.Time to fitness out with our new big hands.
>>40606991But it's not fun tormenting us with the BBEG if we just skip to the point where we actually stand a chance.
>>40606991>Time skip?Hell no, I wanna play their young years to the fullest.
>>40606947>>We need to go to the shrines eventually. It's what mom expects before we go home.But I think we should actually go home after this, we've got a good enough story to work this to our advantage.Also I'd imagine we could work up quite the kobold lynch mob/murder squad to face off against that guy, you fuck with one warren member you fuck with them all, and he did just state he'd be glad to wear our skins eventually.
Link to archived quests?
>>40607217Could somebody do this for me, please? Moe's down, and I never did figure out a good string to get all the quests on one page.Also, Shrines and Training wins it.
>>40607332I would but I can't be arsed.
>>40607217This has this quest and Harpy.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=RE:%20Monster
>>40606947"If we train, then it won't be a problem..." You take a bite of your meat, and Emma nods in agreement. Garush opens his mouth and Nurrim raises her hand to stall him. He grumps and leans back in his seat, crossing his arms and waiting. "You said you knew people who could help us. There's not anything to it but to get stronger... right?""I'm againsts its." Garush says, making a cutting motion with his hand. "Da strongers ya gets, da mores peoples are gonnas wanna fight yas. Tink abouts its. Peoples always wanna proves dere da bests, yeah? How does ya do dat?""Kicking ass, taking names." Maya makes a jabbing motion at nothing in particular with the sausage on the end of her fork."Exactlys, blue. Ta get strongers, ya gotta fight stronger peoples. And den dere are gonnas be weaker peoples dat wanna fights yas too. It nevah ends.""So, what, the best answer is to stay weak so the world can just do what it wants to you? Garush... you've changed." Nurrim shakes her head, and the orc looks like he might shout at her, but as you whimper, he growls and swallows his upset."Besides, the girls are old enough to make their own choices, I think. And it sounds like Nadia has made hers, at least. Emma, dear? Djanna?""I go where Nadia goes." Djanna says without hesitation, nodding as if that settles the matter. Emma nods her agreement."Well, you all can go fuck about in the countryside all you want. I'm going to stay here with tall, drab, and shouty." Maya slaps Garush on the shoulder as the orc goes to take a drink, and beer sloshes down the front of his greatcoat. Maya snickers and he glares at the small girl. "Aw, c'mon. You wouldn't hit cute li'l old me, right?""No, but ya'd be surpriseds wheres someone yer sizes coulds be stuffeds."Nurrim shakes her head.
>>40607217>>40607332http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=kobold_questThis has all the threads. There are a few un-related, but it's easy to tell them apart from this quest since they're all pre-2015.
>>40607597"Besides, we... we need to visit the shrines. The air's getting colder, and we only have so long..."Djanna coughs softly as if a bit of food went down wrong. She grabs her glass and takes a deep drink."There's six left. We have plenty of time yet." The dragon girl rasps once she's dislodged whatever it was that caused her distress. "If you want to train, that's probably the best start.">Get Djanna training>Get yourself training>Other (Write-In)
>>40607605Think I could sweet-talk the guy who runs Sup/tg/ to add a tag to all my quests?
>>40607618>Get yourself trainingWe must get stronker, and along the way we'll better find out where Djanna's talents lie so we can get her the most suitable coach
>>40607618So guys, heres my idea, we hit the shrines, preferably WITHOUT DRAMA, and we try to draw our mothers wraith into fighting the skin dude, hes following a "heretical" and "evil" god anyway, one that condones murdering monsters and wearing there skins, so there will be no problem there, and I sincerely doubt ANYBODY would mourn his loss.
>>40607618>Get yourself trainingLets see how much damage our hands clubs do now
>>40607618>Get Djanna training
>>40607618>Get yourself trainingDjanna's lightning breath seems good enough for the time being.
Training yourself wins it. Taking a brief break, then writing.
>>40608635Okay.Got called off for a bit, guys. Back soon. Sorry for wait so I'll throw up a vote now:>Train power>Train fighting skill
>>40608710>Train fighting skillWe can know how to gain strength ourselves.
>>40608710Being able to actually use our divine powers in a reliable manner would be nice.
>>40608710>>Train powerIs this our magic? if so this.
>>40608710>Train fighting skillWe can work out on our own.
>>40608710>Train fighting skillIt would work well with our new mobility
>>40608710>>Train powerForgot to actually put my vote in >>40608761
>>40608710>Train fighting skillYou can a lot further with skill than raw muscle
>>40608710>>Train powerSee if we can lower the DC for base healing So we don't be sad when we cant magic heal
>>40608710>Train fighting skillIts the skills that pay the bills.
>>40608710>Train powerThese are both good options.
>>40608710Train to not get hit by axes

>>40607597>"No, but ya'd be surpriseds wheres someone yer sizes coulds be stuffeds."lewd
>>40607618"Then I want to be the one to train next." You smile at Garush, your tail swinging behind your chair. "So I can keep Emma and Djanna safe, and beat up bad guys if they need it, and that means I need to be able to fight." You nod. Garush, to his credit, only frowns a little before he nods agreement."Well... yas is alreadys plentys strongs. I tink dat means I knows da guys ya needs ta meets ta learns hows ta fights... but I'ms goings wit yas dis times."You start to wag your tail in excitement, but your ears droop just as quickly. "...no...""...s'cuses me?""You can't come. Ya gots ta stays... er, stay... here an' help Nurrim an' Maya learn how ta live in a city. They're gonna need somebody keeping an eye on them." You whisper, tristing your hands together in your lap. Garush looks between the blue demon girl and the older kitsune. To her credit, Nurrim seems appreciative. Maya seems a bit insulted."Hey, excuse me! I am perfectly adept at living in the city!""You tried to steal the flowers out of somebody's window." Emma quips."In my defense! I didn't think I'd get caught.""Okays... okays, ya mights haves a points. But ya gots ta haves someting bettahs dan jes da clothes on ya backs. We're gonna gets yas some armors... maybe a weapon or somethin'.""But I don't think that's...""That's fine." Djanna nods her agreement. "There's enough in the horde, right?"Garush nods. Emma takes another bite of your food and you chew your lip. After lunch, you find yourself in a small, squat stone building, and a man roughly Garush's build, rendered a size smaller, stands before you.
>>40612221"...lemme get dis straight. Ya want me ta armor dese little girls.""Da's right.""Because yer sendin' them out into the wild on they own.""...yus.""Yer not a very good papa."Garush seems to be at a loss for words, torn between shame and irritation. Djanna steps forward, trying to dispel the situation before it arises."Sir, you make arms and armor, right? I'd like something I can move in... and something long, that I can strike with from a distance.""That'll be a spear, den. Ya know what ya like, girly, I'll give ya that." The blacksmith crosses his arms across his broad chest and nods, looking down at you. "What about you an' yer daughter?">"Daughter!?">Go with it.>Ignore the comment. I want armor (Write-In)>I want a weapon (Write-In)>Other

>>40612471Ignore smartass craftsmen.Acquire armor.Writing.
>>40612457.... I am not a smart otter.
>>40612471>Like a chainmail.Chainmail is one of the single most encumbering forms of armor, since it hangs off the shoulders and can't support or distribute it's weight at all. It also swings around, requires a lot of maintenance to keep in good shape the the links move against each other constantly and rubs the oil away, takes a lot of time to repair, makes a lot of noise, doesn't help much against blunt impact, and finally, would catch in our fur.Fuck chain. Get a coat-of-plates and jack chains.
>>40612552You're.. not an otter at all. I think you're dead on with the not smart part.
>>40612252You shake your head and don't address the man's comment. Can't he see she's a kitty, and you're a kobold? Eesh..."I want armor, mister. Somethin' light that I can punch people in?" You ask, tail swishing lightly. The man regards you for a moment and nods, frowning. "Well, it's gonna take some time. Two custom jobs. I can make it work, of course, but how much you got?""Don't yas worries abouts da moneys. We gots it covereds." Garush pulls up a stool and eases himself down onto it. It creaks under him, screaming in protest under the orc's weight. The smith nods, turning and grabbing a measuring tape from a peg by the forge."Then, either of you girls know how to read a measuring tape?"============================================================You hit Garush hard enough to force him back, the orc holding his stomach with a groan. He plants his peg leg on the ground between two cobbles, giving a low growl."When da hells dids ya gets so strongs?"You smile and wag your tail happily. Garush praised you! Of all people, Garush - the strongest uncle you know - praised you!"But... dids ya shrinks or somethin's?"...aw, man...He rights himself, taking on a boxer's stance. "Well, come on den. If yas so sures dat ya wannas fights, den shows me what ya's gots!">Attack first>Wait for him to move>Other

>>40614410But Mabari could be the owlbear and Kitty
>>40613409You dash forward, swinging at Garush. He bats at you, but you're too quick for him, striking under his guard and lightly striking him in the side. He jerks back, keeping his balance, and you follow it up with another blow to his stomach. He tries to keep his guard up, but he wasn't expecting you to be so swift, and it's clear he's on the back foot. You grin and barrel into him, knocking him over and pouncing on his chest, sitting atop him as your tail thrashes. You're smiling, tongue lolling out the side of your mouth, and you throw back your head, giving a high, thin victory howl."Awright, awright, ya gots me..." He pants at the exertion, reaching up and patting your head lightly. "Good girl."You practically melt, giving a small giggle before you slip off of him and help him to his feet. "Again! Again!"He shakes his head, slowly trudging over to the door to the warehouse and taking a seat on a barrel. Emma skips over to you with a cup of water, offering it to you. You whine softly, taking it and taking a quick drink before you walk over to Garush, Emma in tow. Djanna is trying to press a mug of beer on him, but he seems lost in thought."Garush? What's wrong?" You sit at his feet, looking up at him with your head tilted to the side, ears pricked forward. "You seem down.""Not downs. I just didn't thinks ya'd have gotten so's strongs in a couple weeks. It's a bits ta takes in..." You whimper and lower your ears and tail, hunch your shoulders, and stare at the ground as the sound of the waves breaking against the sea wall lends the mid-day haze a chill aura. "M'sorry I won... didn't mean to make you sad..."He sighs and reaches out, hand planted between your ears, and pets you gently. He finally takes the beer with his free hand and takes a drink, thanking Djanna. "I'm not mads cause ya wons, girl, c'mons... it just means ya went throughs more thans I thoughts. Dese huntahs musta been a right buncha monstahs. Da bad kind."
>>40614707You tilt your head under his hand. "Huh? No, I told you, they were humans.""Naw, not likes dat hons. Bein' a monstahs in dat way? It's alls on dah insides. Tings what preys on da weak just because deys cans? Dat's monstahs. Creatures dat live in dah dark and'll eat ya soon as look at ya? Dat's monstahs. Trust me. I've seen some in mah times.""He's telling the truth, girls. He's really that old."Nurrim walks up the street, a fur-lined cloak wrapped tight around her, a long white dress beneath that. She carries a cloth bag at her side, and a small leather pouch around her neck. She pulls it from between her cleavage and hands it to the orc. "Here's the change. This should be more than enough for the trip."He nods and rises, hand pulling away from your head, though you stretch out your neck to prolong contact with a whine. He takes the bag and Nurrim frowns."Count it.""Eh?""Count it. I think the woman at the store cheated us.""I've knowns Ruby fer years nows. Why would she cheats us?""It feels to light...""Ya didn't counts it on yer owns?""...you know I don't know how.""Ya w-""Don't make me repeat it!"He practically winces, but nods, obliging the woman and counting out the coins. "Nope. Alls dere. See? Ya worrieds fer-"She shoves the bag of goods into his hand."Great. Now make sure all this is here!""Ya didn't-""...can't read, either..."Garush just grumbles and turns to the three of you. "Girls, it's beens a week. Go sees if ya armor's dones an' go checks on Maya, would yas? Make sure she's not tryins ta gas da block..."You nod, and your sisters in tow, you set off down the street. A few residents of the dock district smile and wave, the three bunkhouse girls having become a common site in the last week, especially as stories of your exploits across the Skyteeth seem to have somehow spread. You'll have to have a talk about that with Maya, later...>Go check on Maya first.>Armor first>Go... (Write-In)>Other

>>40614802>>40614719Wait, if she can't read or write, who the hell inscribed the grave stones for her mother, father, and sisters?
>>40614833I never said they were inscribed.
>>40614833They weren't inscribed
>>40614802Maybe she's dyslexic. I'm not sure how not being able to count works, but there's probably an explanation for it somewhere.
>>40614902There's also the inability to do math. A friend of mine has that.
>>40614902She can count to a point, she just can't into money.
>>40614719Checking on Maya.Writing.
>>40614902Coins.Different kinds of coins.If you don't know their value, it's hard to count them.
>>40614719"Hey. Nadia. What's on your mind?" Djanna walks beside you, Emma traipsing along behind, her new shoes clicking on the paving stones. You look up at her, ears perking. You hadn't realized you were staring at the street at your feet. "Hm? Oh... I... was just thinking about something Garush said.""About getting stronger?"You nod as Djanna turns down the side-street leading to Maya's workshop. She'd been spending a lot of her free time with the young demoness lately, and even now had a pair of crystaline vials hanging from her own belt. "It worries me. You saw it... I knocked him over. He's... he's huge! And strong! I shouldn't have been able to...""Maybe you just got lucky?" Emma asks as the three of you stop in front of Maya's door, looking up at your back. "I mean, he did say you were moving fast."You shrug softly. It explains it... maybe... but it doesn't help your mood any. Soon enough, Frelp - the goblin formerly known as Ice-axe - opens the door to the workshop. He's discarded his worn leathers for a cloth vest, breeches, and currently a leather apron that smells vaguely of sandalwood. "Mistress not accepting custom- oh, is you. Come, come. Welcome." He steps out of the doorway, gesturing you in.The three of you step into a small parlor, and Frelp closes the door behind. You hear the other goblins shuffling about nearby, and the whole house smells of aromatics. Vibrant silk flowers sit in glass vases in the windowsill, and a long couch upholstered in crimson occupies the wall opposite."What you do here? Mistress busy. Glad for company, but busy.""Just a social call, Frelp. Checking in to see if she needs anything." Djanna offers her hand and the goblin takes it, giving a firm shake before releasing it."Appreciate, but no need. Have everything we n-""DAGGER WANT KITTY!"Frelp reaches up, rubbing his temple with long, green fingers. "Not again..."
>>40615411>"DAGGER WANT KITTY!"Bitch we will fight you.
>>40615411"KITTY! KITTY KITTY KITTY!" The smaller, skinnier goblin stomps through the room, wearing a large-brimmed hat, the band having once apparently contained decorative flowers, though now only the stems remained as if the petals had been torn off in a fit of anger."Ya can't has a cat! We been ovah dis!" Burri - formerly Spear - follows him quickly, shouting. "Dere wouldn't be enough ta feeds alla us! An' deys stringy ta boots!""Back we go." Frelp growls softly, leading the way to the rear of the small house. Maya stands over a steaming cauldron, the odor of plants almost unbearable. Pots and planters containing small shoots line every surface in this room but the center, where a low fire burns under the copper cauldron. The young demoness' skin shines with sweat, her thin ankle-length skirt and top clinging to her in the heat. You immediately begin to sweat as you step over the threshold, and Djanna clears her throat. Emma hangs back, eyes narrowed at the demon girl, tails quivering."Maya? Hey, Maya."The demoness turns and favors you all with a slow smile. There's something odd about it. It's languid, almost lazy, but there's both promise and threat in it. Her eyes are half-lidded, and she regards you as if she would like very much to eat you in a way that you think, somehow, you might survive. "Oh, well well. Welcome. You've just caught me working, I'm afraid. Do come in, though." she practically purrs, stepping off the step she'd been occupying, sashaying over to your little group. Something in the air in here is putting you very slowly at ease, and making your mind go a bit fuzzy.>Resist the scent>Surrender>Talk to... (Write-In)>Other
>>40615435>Attempt to find scent.Adorablod sniffing go.
>>40615435>Resist the scent
>>40615435>RESIST!FOUL TEMPTRESS!Seriously, though, is she brewing up ecstasy?
>>40615469>>40615493>>40615499Or.. it's just like pot. Or some kind of incense.
>>40615515Fuck you go get high somewhere else.
>>40615499MAYA HAS CONCOCTED: ROHYPNOLBut, naw, nothing illicit. Yet. Just an experiment that had an unintended result.And even if I was magical realm enough to make it an aphrodisiac, you're kids. Even if you gave in to it, the worst that would probably happen is some kind of cuddle pile and awkward eye contact when it wore off.
>>40615542Paranoid anons ruin cute things.
>>40615542Well, the thing with ecstasy is that it drives you into a very affectionate state, but you only really have the drive to do cuddles.Of course, they're alright being bottom.I mean... That's what I've heard at least.From my friend.Who sells ecstasy.
>>40615573They had the right idea, but the wrong scale.Anyway, sniffing and resistance has it, because I find the idea of Nadia getting a snout full hysterical. Gimme dice.>>40615580You also have to ingest it, right? Although, weaponized, aerosolized ecstasy would be funny.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>40615600
>>40615580Greetings fellow 4channer. I am interested in making friends. Where would your friend happen to reside. Dank mem. Aooow~
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>40615600
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>40615600FOR SCIENCE!
>>40615692Dammit. I wanted to fail the DC not pass. Fuck you dice I want cute things..
>>40615705It's official. The dice fucking hate you.They don't want you to die, they just want to spite you.Last update for the night, I think. If you don't count my little break for a nap, I've been running roughly twelve hours.
>>40615600Yeah, it's a tablet, generally with a design engraved on one side.If I remember correctly, the ones my friend sold had dolphins on them. I only ever saw them, though.>>40615675I'd tell you if I knew.Or wanted to tell you.It's been about 4 years.
>>40615726Honestly, I rolled the 10. Do what you want.
>>40615726>No adorable sneezing
>>40615726So... What if we had crit-failed that?
>>40615786FTB.You wake up with a lot of questions that nobody can answer.Garush is disappointed.
>>40615826Fade to black. We pass out.
>>40615826Fade To Black.As in, scene shift.Basically, you pass out in a cuddle pile, but when you wake up nobody knows what happened the night before and as nobody was there to witness it, you never will.
>>40615837We don't pass out.We black out.If you follow fire emblem adventure quest, think of the coin.
>>40615853I followed the harpy guy's fire emblem quest. The new fire emblem one is a mess.
>>40615868A beautiful mess.Like abstract art.Abstract art that happens to include metal gear fire emblem and dead rising.
>>40615903You know. You can call it abstract art. But sometimes.. it's just a guy shitting all over a canvas.
>>40615925Or a woman puking colored juice over a canvas whilst a dual choir sings hymns in the background.
>>40615435You whine and slip into the room, looking down at Maya. She reaches out and runs her fingers through the fur on your hand, her slender fingers trailing up your arm. You take her gently by the wrist and pull her hand away and she responds by pressing against you, nuzzling your chest. "Nadia, you're so big and cute... I could just bury my face in your chest and be happy for the rest of my life. And Djanna, you've been such a help..." She pulls away from you and let her go. She moves to the dragon girl, who takes a step back, moving past Emma. Maya's eyes turn to the kitsune, and the demoness hums softly, her tail twitching. "Emma-""I will punch you. Do not tempt me.""Aw, is this about the thing? I'm really, really sorry about that... you know I just had to try and keep order, you know? I didn't want to hurt you, honestly. In fact, I always thought you were really, really..."Emma turns beet-red and her tails puff out as the demoness grabs her in a kiss, holding her close. She strains against Maya's arms, trying to break free. Djanna looks on, wide-eyed for a long moment before she moves to the two, trying to separate them. You step into the workshop, sniffing deeply. The whole place smells indescribable, so many scents layered over one-another, intermingled and combined. The heat and the humidity in the air work together on your mind to create a haze that you're easily able to focus through. You crouch low to the ground, inhaling deeply and repetitively until, sure enough, your nose brings you to the cauldron as the source of the odor. You lean over, taking a deep inhale, and sneeze violently. Okay, now you're kind of feeling... no! No, bad girl. Focus!"C'mooooon, let me touch 'em! I'll let you touch mine!" Maya's voice sounds syrupy sweet, with just enough pout in it that it might be considered cute."Keep your hands off my ears!"
>>40615946You whine, looking about. Quickly, you decide there's no better alternative. You grab the small cauldron, the heat seeping into your hand. You can't help but feel this should be burning you, but you don't have time to worry about it now. You push open a window, the latch breaking off.You hurl it into the alley below.==========================================="...how many times are you going to make me apologize?" Maya frowns, hands on her hips as she looks studiously at anything but Emma, her tail lashing about like a serpent. "I told you, it... it was the mixture! I wouldn't have done that to you under any other circumstances!"Emma just stares at the girl with pure murder in her eyes, cowering at your side and clinging to your coat. Her tails sway lightly back and forth, her ears flat against her head as you wait for the blacksmith to retrieve your gear from inside."Maya, just leave it for now. You apologized, she'll come around."You nod and gently lay a hand on Emma's back. "She did for me, she will for you. Right, Emma?"The small fox girl gives a whining growl high in her throat, eyes not leaving the demoness.
>>40615962Damn you dice. You ruined cute ear scritchings for Nadia.
>>40615962That's all for tonight, folks. Thanks for playing, enduring the shitstorms. A guy honestly couldn't ask for a nicer player base.
>>40615946>>40615962Fucking really, Lotus? Rape?
>>40616075>RapeWait whatdid I miss something? Where?
>>40616075There was no rape.Molestation?YesRape?No.
>>40616075You're trolling or stupid. Which is it?
>>40616110Looks very tumblresque.So probably both.Or it was a joke about the group's tendency to overreact, and you lot are proving it to be more than hyperbole.
>>40616110She kissed Emma and it was unwanted. A clear violation of her agency.And aren't they kids anyway? That's just disgusting. Lotus should be on a watch list.
>>40616194Don't feed the trolls, cousins.Q&A time!
>>40616224Too late for that. Bed time man.
>>40616168Am I browsing tumblr now?
>>40616285Awww...Well, of there are any, I may run tomorrow too.Night!>>40616285
>>40616224Where do you think we'll be ending the quest at, assuming no premature ending?Do you have any vague plans for a love interest down the road? I"m assuming that Nadia is too sisterly towards her sisters.
>>40616317If things progress, well, it ends when people get bored. Inhave arxs and storylines to last a long time, and in theory a trip to the market could take a lot of threads.Love interest? I have a couple in mind, but it's not a requirement. She could rnd up a spinster if she wants, or date a chick. She feels love for her sistersz but they aren't blood so that could grow or freeze off, depending.
>>40616401Thanks n.nAlso how well connected are the other re quest threads to this one? This is the only fantasy quest I am following currently, and I know literally jack all about anything it may be based on.
>>40616224Have Nadia's ears been getting longer?
>>40616401If you meant in terms of game time? 1-2 yearsm maybe a little more.Events-wise? Completing the pilgrimage or reaching another end condition.
>>40616492Tangientially at best.>>40616496Nope. It's all going to her tail
>>40616518Is her tail fluffy?This is a very important question.Also List our party members tail fluffyness.
>>40616554And yes. Russian wolfhound fluffy.
>>40616575Not only is Nadia the dullest member of the bunch. Her tail is least fluffy.
>>40616583>Russian wolfhoundThose creepy me the fuck out. Overall shape of those damn dogs is too skinny.
>>40616585Well, as a dragon of western style, they don't get much fluff.
>>40616685Not the sharpest crayon in the tool box.
>>40616690Oh, I thought you meant boring.
>>40616731No I'm not sure she could be accused of that.
>>40616575>Djanna comes before MayaI really feel like they'd be equal.Also, why isn't Garush on the list?
>>40616861Orcs have no tails.And Djanna has a broad tail. Maya's is thin and whiplike.
>>40616872Tail attacks?Also, how should we do as a player?I mean, we almost got killed by hunters, but that was because we followed a dangerous trap thinking it was a plot point. I don't know how we are supposed to do it. Play safe? Follow something shiny? Honestly I think I'm now a bit spooked at trying to following anything that looks dangerous now.
>>40618200>Honestly I think I'm now a bit spooked at trying to following anything that looks dangerous now.Dangerous-looking things have dangerous things at the end of them, how shocking!What next? Sharp knives can cause cuts? Pointy sticks can poke holes in things and people?
>>40618200I think this whole thing came off as me slapping you on the wrist for being adventurous, and I didn't mean it to. I wanted to introduce the arc boss, that's about it. I think Nadia might have learned to be a bit more cautious, but I doubt it would dampen her natural curiosity much. Just my opinion. You guys are the players.
>>40619794Yeah, kind of came off terrible in a lot of ways.
>>40619921What's done is done. I can't promise something like that might not happen again, but I can promise it won't be just an overwhelming one-round smackdownnUnless you meet the Man in White. Not that he's still alive or anything.
>>40619992And I just realized my trip was fucked up. Damn phone.
Well, since I'm awake now and so, presumably, are a few more of you, any questions? I may run again later today, as well.
>>40620172What sort of fist weapons are there? Are they common in this realm?I'd guess we'd have to get some kinda caestus so that we can retain use of our claws
>>40620399Not a great deal, I'm afraid. I could give a roll, and Nadia could maybe remember those knuckle-pad MMA glove things and she could jury-rig something, or describe it and let somebody else work it out. Otherwise, there's always the tried and true brass knuckles. Given the odd size and shape of a kobold's hands, anything you do would be custom work and not terribly cheap.Barring that, traveling south to cities with a gladiatorial tradition would yield more ready-made cesti, katar, etc. Dvotysk does have the odd traveller wintering in the city, so you could find out about them without hitting the road.
>>40620584Forgive me if this starts shit again, but I want to kill this argument for good: are Nadia's claws limited to the strength of keratin? One of the things that seemed to fuel the weapon shitstorm was the idea that our claws were strictly inferior to metal from a material standpoint, but considering this is a fantasy setting I don't see any reason to assume that's the case, or at least will always be the case. With age and/or the right evolutions, could we end up with claws equivalent to iron or steel, or even better?Captcha, stop. That's a hammer, not ice cream.
>>40620708With age comes power, so yes. Given time, your claws and fists can become superior to MUNDANE mortal materials.You can cave in a steel breastplate. Adamant, enchanted items, etc? No.Your claws won't be able to rend through metal like hot butter, but you can destroy it/damage it enough to uselessness. If nothing else, it could force a retreat. Don't look for that to happen for a while yet, though. They'll have their best use against the unarmored. For armored opponents, best to fight smart always rather than rely on an all-out assault
>>40620708As long as nadia stays cute(of course she can grow up, I meant her cuddling her buddies and thingys) I have no reason to object or deter this guy.
>>40620807>You can cave in a steel breastplate.This will end so much arguements.Thanks lotus.
>>40620844in the future. we still need something now.
>>40620877How's Maya's alchemy? Can we get poisons and shit from her?
We still need to ask Nirrum about her and Garush's relationship.
>>40620887Journeyman-tier, with a focus on CC-tyoe items. Tanglefoot Bags, bottles of Stinking Cloud, etc. She's kind of an idiot savant/prodigy, though, so a lot of it is throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks. Of course, that was limited in the past by what materials she could get.Now? Prepare the gast masks.
>>40620924>gast masksOh god she's a necromancerI don't know if you did this on purpose, but in one edition of d&d, ghast's actualy have an aura of stench. so ghast masks could be a real thing
>>40620924We Chlorinebold now?
>>40620964If you want to be evil, sure.Incidentally, I'm trying to convince Sigil to have a squadron of harpies that carry messenger bags full of poison gas vials on each hip, leather strips bound to their ankles connected to breakaway seams on the bottom of the bags.Harpy Vietnam.
>>40620992You know, on /mgqg/ a certain writefag used that idea, (s)he wrote it as harpies throwing down at the enemy army while they were exposed in the wheat fields.not only this covered the protagonist's ass and his infiltrated small platoon escape against the opponents(he did not plan for this ambush), it fucked up their industry AND military badly. Two fucking legions burned to death because everywhere is either wheat/burning wheat/smoke.>>40621138>undiesNOT FOR LEWDSNOT EVEN ECCHI
>>40621206Heh. Twisted minds think alike.>>40621138Dude... Not for lewds.
>>40620960I did not, but neat!
>>40621268>Twisted minds think alike.GODDAMMIT STOP SCARING US LOTUS
>>40621436I swear, playing this quest is like playing candyland,only the other player is wearing a blood-stained maskand there's a gun sitting on the table next to him
>>40621452Not funny!>>40621462The question is, how many rounds does the gun contain, and how good of a shot is that player.I just pray for nadia and co's safety.
>>40621652But, pray to whom? Mwahahahaha!
>>40621990literally anyone who would listenWell, there go my plans for blackguardbold, somebody's started up a thread for discussing a blackguard quest.Now i'll never get my adorable evil pettins
>>40622010We still have the opportunity in the future. We even have our own producer of chlorine bombs who I'm sure would be happy to help us.
>>40622043yeeeeah, but it's just not the same.
>>40622010You have Maya. Her hair's soft.
>>40622043Gas the goblins? Light haired bold master race? Cute and fluffy.
>>40622131Is her hair compairable to emma/nadia?
>>40622528>Gas the humans, monster war now!
>>40622664Nadia's is bushy and poofy. Thick and deep, but really messy.Emma's is very sleek and smooth, warm and heavy. As plush as the fur on her tails.Djanna's is long and thin. Silky and straight.Maya's is kind of kinky at the ends with a slight wave. Enough to catch the light if you look at it right. It's soft, but more the kind you want to run your fingers through and play with than pet.In my opinion, best hair ranking:EmmaNadiaMayaDjanna
>>40623279>Emma>Best hairNigga, wut?
>>40623869She's a kitsune, they are the fluffiest. Always.
>>40623279As it's been mentioned that Djanna has a broad tail, the biologist in me has to ask whether her monsterkind happens to be related to amphibians or water lizards (beyond dragons being lizards). Broader tails are advantageous in water environments, as they have a stronger stroke (thus pushing their owner farther in the water) and can be used to strike things during fights much as Djanna's done. However, their weight and size made them prone to injury when on land (due to largely needing to be dragged along the ground, thereby developing cuts and scrapes and tears and things), as well as tiring their owner out from having to lug a (useless for movement outside of water) giant tail everywhere.The combination of injury and extra exertion rendered the heavy-tails unable to properly compete with the lighter-tails back when the prototype lizards evolved from amphibians, leading to the thinner tails we see now in lizards (and by extent every other tailed land animal) becoming dominant.I'm more than aware that Earth evolutionary history means largely jack shit in a land of magic, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.
>>40624346Until they start growing and evolving, young monsters can, at best, be said to be a clusterfuck. Djanna and Sylea are both Eastern-style dragons, while Kardas is a Western-style dragon. Djanna's thicker tail is probably an inheritance from her father, but as of Djanna's last evo, she's begun to more closely resemble her mother's archetype, with her tail becoming longer and slightly thinner. She's going to lose some power, but she's getting smarter and more dextrous (reflecting her being the team's healer, basically, and angling toward anon wanting her to take the alchemist/artificer route).
