You nod, but something about the way Kraken said that, about the merfolk "surrendering their ego," didn't sit well with you. Probably didn't bear thinking about, though. He... she... it? Whatever it was, it was the envoy of a god. Surely it knew what it was doing. "I'll be sure to tell them."The grand beast blinks in what you hope is appreciation, and its tentacles undulate, clearing a space for you to stand. You carefully move across the slimy, fleshy surface of the beast's multitudinous arms to the solid, flat spot of ground and take a seat. "You are a credit to the words the golden tyrant spoke of you, mortal child. Tell me, did you enjoy our lord's gifts?"You nod slowly, your tail wagging behind you. "You helped me save Emma, and now the merfolk are going to help me save Djanna. Both my sisters are going to be safe. That might not have happened. What did you do, anyway?""Me? I did nothing. Sha, in her depthless wisdom and great mercy, saw fit to give you what so many mortals desire above all else: a little more time. A chance to turn back the tides. Or turn them ahead, just a bit. You must be wary, though. The mighty wave can swallow even the largest of mountains. A child like yourself would be but another piece of chum, to be swallowed by what lies beneath."You blink slowly before tilting your head to the side. "Um... come again?""Be careful not to use these powers too much. They're hard for even us to handle.""Oh! Oh, okay. I follow you now." You nod quickly."We are running short of time, child. If there is more you would ask, now is the time.">Is there anything that Sha wants me to do?>Where can I find the island with the dragon?>Can you tell me if anyone from the shipwreck is still alive?>Write-In>Other

>>40886164"Is there anything Sha wants me to do? I mean, she... he? What should I-""The Depthless One is old and formless. They are not concerned with mortal appellations.""Er, right... do they want anything from me?""What you do will suit the tides, and allow the flow of time to proceed. Do as you will, and all will be well.""Okay... and what about Djanna? What island is the dragon on? You must know the seas around here, right?" You ask eagerly, eyes wide and tail thrashing."Indeed. The mountain at the heart of the archipelago. There is a small, lawless city at its base. Perhaps not the best place for a child such as yourself, if what I have heard on the currents is to be believed.""Why? Wh-""I will not repeat them. I may be ageless, a monstrosity, and the unhallowed terror of the deeps, but there are some things even a monster won't say.""Oh... well, all right." Wait.. the deeps? Monsters?"The ship! Oh no! W-what about the crew? The navigator? The captain!? Are they...""Dead? To a man."Perhaps it's the casual way the beast said it, with no hint of malice, or sadness, or indeed any sort of compassion in its voice. As if he had just casually informed you that your last piece of snow sugar had been eaten. Your tail sags, your ears droop, and you look to the ground. You hadn't known them, not really, but somehow so many lives being snuffed out so quickly and with so little fanfare..."They are hardly your concern, child. You have a much more important river you are following. Pay them no heed. Acceptable sacrifices along the path."You frown and clench your fists. You want to shout at the beast, but somehow you can't seem to summon up the right words to say. You feel the world around you growing hazy, as though you were about to wake from a dream."There is time enough for one more question if you have it to ask.">Write-In
>>40886635Thank you, sir
>>40886660"Can I call you Bubbles? Would you like a hug?"
>>40886660How can I find the dragon? Anything I need to find him?
>>40886660Oh. Oh no. Um... um... "Oh! Um, what do I... can I call you Bubbles? Do you need a hug? Everyone could use a hug. And the dragon? How do I find it? What do I need to do when I do find it? Do you know if Djanna's all right? Why can't I go to the city? Does it have anything to do with what Garush talked to me about? He didn't want to talk about that either. I don't blame him, it's icky. Did-"The Kraken speaks, but the words don't reach you as the scene fades away. You suck in a breach, finding yourself knelt once more in the muck, with Emma standing over you with a concerned look on her face. The merman sits idly against a wall, gripping its spear. "Thank you..." you whisper, hoping the Kraken will hear you. You rise slowly, your legs stiff. You stumble, almost falling, and Emma catches you."Oof! Careful! God, Nadia, you're getting heavy..." The girl struggles, trying to right you. Now that you have your balance, you right yourself easily, and Emma likewise rights herself. "Did you get whatever it was you were trying to do done? You've been knelt down like that for a really long time. I was getting worried."You nod, looking over at the merman. He rises, gesturing above with the spear. You nod, taking Emma's hand, and letting the merman take the lead. "I think so. I have a few more things to talk to Vsszah about, but then we should be ready to go after Djanna.""You think that she's all right? It's been a while. We might-""She's alive. I know she is. I don't know how I know, but... I do.""Then, that's good enough for me." You kick off the bottom, and Emma follows behind, the both of you kicking as you follow along behind the merman. ==================================
>>40887107"Ego? What mean, 'surrender ego?'""It means you have to realize you don't rule here, that you're acting like a big fish in a small pond." Emma tries to explain to the merfolk lord, seated beside you. "You need to be more humble.""Hm. Humble. Why be humble? We strong. Have magic, have power. No need. Stronger than drylanders. Think you try trick us."You growl softly, and Vsszah tilts his head back, looking down his nose at you. "Now, listen here... I haven't got a reason to trick you! I'm just passing a message to you. What you do about it isn't any of my concern, so long as you help me get my sister back."Vsszah nods, rising his hand and turning his hand forward. "Deal is deal, word is bond. We go soon, when you ready. What more have you need?"(Write-Ins for all speech options)>Talk to the Elder>Talk to Cain>Talk to Reven>See what supplies the villagers have>Other
>>40887124>Talk to the ElderAnything you can tell me about the city in the crater?>See what supplies the villagers have
>>40887124>Talk to Cain"When we were fighting the serpent, I think we found out what happened to your brother. Did he use a trident? The fish people gave us one, and when we stabbed the monster I thought I saw someone that looked like you help push it in."
>>40887124You leave Vsszah to ponder the implications of what Bubbles imparted to him, but you're fairly sure he's not going to give it another thought. You and Emma return to the surface, down the beach. You shake out vigorously, squeezing as much of the water out of your tails and fur as you can, before you walk back into the village. One of the younger women is the first to notice you, calling out to the rest of the village and rushing out to meet you."Are the two of you all right? We thought you died when the mer took you!""The Elder will be so happy. He's been trying to raise the support of the men to go hunting for you!""Cain hasn't slept a bit since you were washed over the dock!"You're soon surrounded by a press of bodies, enquiring as to your well being. A piece of fruit is pressed into your hand, and then a cup of fresh water into the other, and it becomes apparent just how desperately hungry you are. Under the sea, you had lost all track of the sunlight, and to be honest, you had no idea how much time had passed between your battle, and the jaunt to the spirit realm. You devoured the fruit, and several dried fish were then presented to you, which you devoured greedily. By the time you were brought to the Elder's house, your stomachs were full and you were very, very tired.The Elder rose when you entered, Cain reaching his feet in a rapid, smooth motion with a look of shock on his face. The Elder looks stern, but there is relief in his eyes. He looks to the men gathered around him and barks a sharp command of "Leave us!" The men nod and rise, slipping from the house. Kiva is conspicuously absent. The old man crosses the room to stand before you, looking down into your eyes for a long, long time. Suddenly, he reaches out and embraces you tightly. "Thank the goddess..."Well... that's unexpected."Um... is everything all right?" Emma looks up at the Elder with a raised eyebrow, then to you.
>>40887671"Vsszah rarely shows any emotion, besides condescension. I worried for your safety. We would have come sooner, but we cannot swim too deeply. We don't know where they keep court."You're not sure how to react to that. You pull back, and the Elder releases you. "I actually had a few questions for you before I left."The Elder nods and resumes his seat, beckoning you closer. You oblige and sit, Cain resuming his seat at the Elder's right hand, and Emma takes hers to your left. "There's supposedly a city on the island that the dragon's cave is on. A real bad place. You know anything about it?" You stifle a yawn, Emma seeming to easily focus through the full stomach and exhaustion. "I've heard it's a bad place.""It's horrible for the young. A lawless place, where trade of any kind, good or bad, can take place without interference from any of the local authorities." The Elder shakes his head. "If there were anywhere else you could land, I would caution you to avoid it, but as that's not possible, please, let me send Cain, or a few young men from the village with you. The men are known there. You would have less trouble... but perhaps not none at all."You consider it, but don't respond for the moment. You look to Cain, then to the Elder."Elder... your other son. Did he use a Trident?"Cain blanches. The Elder's eyes narrow. You recount the story of the battle with the serpent, of how when you drove in the spear, you saw the phantasm aiding the killing blow. Cain is spellbound and silent.A single tear flows down the Elder's cheek."...thank you, child. He... he is at peace now..." He reaches up, covering his face with his hand. He takes a deep, shuddering breath, clenching his other fist on his knee.>Hugs are in order here>Give him a moment to recover his composure>Mention the merfolk's aid>Other
>>40887693>Hugs are in order here
>>40887693>>Hugs are in order hereHug the Elder, he's a lot like papa.
>>40887693>Hugs are in order here>Mention the merfolk's aid
>>40887693>Give him a moment to recover his composure
>>40887693>Hugs are in order hereIt's a Nadia thing
>>40887879You whine softly and scoot forward. Emma watches you with a guarded expression as you come to a stop before the Elder. The older man lowers his hand, doing his best to keep his face impassive, though his eyes brim with unshed tears, barely contained. You reach out and hold him closely, and the old man - the werewolf, the one the men of the village look to - breaks his mask and sheds his tears unashamedly into your hair, throwing his arms around you, nearly a complete stranger. You don't care. Or rather, you don't mind. If what he said is true, if you're both descended from this Fenris, then he's kin.Cain doesn't speak, looking away from his father's display of emotion. Emma just leans back, waiting for the wave of emotion to pass. Soon enough, the old man regains his composure, leaning back and laying his hand on your head. "Nadia... thank you. You have done something for me that I can never repay. Whatever you need of me, or my kin..." He looks pointedly at Cain, and the young man nods. "You have it."You shake your head softly and take his hand in both of yours. "I don't need anything. I just don't like seeing people hurt. I'm glad I could help, however I can. You were good to us. It's the least we could do.""No.""Come again?"
>>40888547The Elder rises, but does not pull back his hand. With his free hand, he reaches to his neck, and pulls a long leather strap from his neck, bearing two long, serrated fangs. "When I was a boy, my first kill was a saw-tooth bug that threatened our marsh with the ravenous hunger of it, and its kin. My spear shattered its shell, and struck home, felling it in a single blow. I took the tips of its teeth, and my father made this totem for me from them. You took no trophy from your kill, to name you a huntress of our band, and so I give you mine. Your blood is ours. Your sorrows ours. Your burdens ours. We name you blood, before our goddess, our ancestors. Any who dispute your claim will answer to us."Before you have a chance to object, or speak, he lays the strap around your neck. The fangs settle on either side of the amber charm you already wear.>Thank you!>This is a little much...>I don't have to stay, do I?>OtherSorry, folks. I think I overestimated things. I'm going to take a quick nap, and hopefully things will improve. I've set a wake-up call with a friend, so I should be back no later than two hours from now. I'll update the Twitter when I return.

>>40889601Wasn't one of Sha's profiles "Terror" or something?Maybe some edgeplay, or breathplay?
>>40889665>BreathplayThat's what the water's for, almost-satan
>>40889721The unnamed werewolf pulled the young kobold back above the waves by her hair, and she sucked in a ragged breath, her chest heaving as the ropes cut into her skin through the thin fur. He growled softly into her ear, full of promise and threat. She whimpered softly, her eyes covered in a haze of lust. The pool was dimly lit by floating stone lanterns suspended in wooden bowls, rocking on the ripples and making the shadows of the cavern dance around them. The younger female looked up at her captor, straining against her bonds with all the strength she could muster, but the chill of the water, and the lack of breath had robbed her of her power. She opened her mouth to speak... to beg, maybe... and the male plunged her below the surface once again. She thrashed, bubbles breaking the surface as she fought, struggled, and grew still. He pulled her back up once more and she gagged, coughing water from her lungs before the older male kissed her hard, stealing what little air she had managed to draw in, his clawed hand around her throat.
>>40889883Ah, water boarding.Clearly she has important information that he wants.
>>40889883I KNEW there was a Hue somewhere around here. But the question is which Hue are you? Bah, doesn't matter. Mind doing the other two gods?
>>40889883I fucking told you assholes.Smut. Thread's over. Innocence ruined.
>>40889976Sure. Weren't there other gods listed besides those two? In the Q&A thread?Tell me their fetishes, I will give you their porn.
>>40889995I mean, technically he never said it was Nadia.Or sex.Technically.
>Djanna was kidnapped by the dragon because the God's want more excuses for Nadia to gain their blessings.
>>40890120On this note, anyone get the feeling that Sha might not be on the level?"Surrender their ego" doesn't really sound... good.
>>40890066>Yra, Blazing Fury. Lord of the Sun.>Domains are Light, Flame, Destruction.Rough, hard, animalistic. Let her brands shine bright so that all might see her glory.>Gra, Endless Dark. Lord of Stone.>Domains are Wealth, Secrets, Earth.Blindfolded, not knowing where you are or who's fucking you.>Uru, Whispering Trickster. Lord of Wind.>Domains are Travel, Tricks, Air.Edgeplay/public.>Sha, Flowing End. Lord of the Waters.>Domains are Time, Water, and Fear.Done.
>>40890150It means "stop being an incorrigible egotistical douche"It's just how a god would phrase it.
>>40890163>Gra, Endless Dark. Lord of Stone.>Domains are Wealth, Secrets, Earth.Wouldn't it also involve prostitution since y'know, wealth?
>>40890163And you should probably put it in a pastebin.
>>40890191Nah.Maybe ivory toys and silken blindfolds, though.
>>40890228"Here is a phallus made of gold, and studded with jewels. Guess where it's going!"
>>40890260"...in my butt?""in your butt!"
>>40890280Or maybe she's covered in gold and jewels, expensive finery and the like, and then set up bound like an expensive decoration, prevented from movement.
>>40889480Actually, she draws it in like everyone else, just at an obscenely high rate.
>>40890307Oh yeah.And most people have to focus to pull in magic.Awoooo~~
>>40890401And some are Giant Spiders and Lizards.
Dear god, what did I miss...
>>40890514The wrong kind of Awooo~ noises from Nadia
>>40890514Huebot attempting to smuttify the quest.
>>40890514So is Nadia for lewds now?
>>40890514It was inevitable.>>40890544And the right kind of screaming.
>>40890163>Gra, Endless Dark. Lord of Stone.>Domains are Wealth, Secrets, Earth.Your body is dripping with gold and precious jewels, flowing from your crown to the tips of your tail and toes. The jewellery is constricting, wrapping tightly around your hips, your waist, around your head, along your limbs, biting into your breasts and buttocks. Slender chains of silver connect each piece of decoration with another, some clamping onto your nipples and clit as they make their way around your body. Then there are the ones made of platinum, these are thick with each ring as ring as your thumb. These chains are used to keep you in place. They pull your arms behind your back and up, pull your head down by the neck, stretch your tail backwards so it exposes you, keeps on feet on the floor by holding onto its ankle, the other folded up and pulled to the side, keeps your hips high by tying them to the ceiling. And then there are the smaller pieces of cold, cold iron. They shine as well as all the other metals but in secret places. The one in your mouth keeps your mouth and throat open, the ones buried in your fur dip prongs into your holes to stretch them wide, you know they are attached to winches which the others can use to pull them even wider if they have need, and you know, you hope, they will have need. Finally, you receive the silk blindfold to keep you blind and the silken earmuffs to keep you deaf. And in this awkward position you will remain for the rest of the night, until Yra banishes Gra and your body is tired and cramped from use, until you are freed from this obligation only to enter another.You cannot keep your nectar from overflowing as you feel the first hands of the night grab hold of you.
>>40890657As long as it is never explicitly stated who is getting the godly love I think we're in the clear.
>>40890755Yeah.It could be any young musclebold blessed by the gods.
>>40888584You're not quite sure what that means. You look up at him with a shy sort of smile. "Um.. thank you, but I already have a family. This is..." You reach up and slowly run your fingers over the sawtooth bug fangs, idly toying with the tips. "I don't know how to take this."The Elder smiles kindly and sits, laying his hands on his thighs. "Well, let me explain. When a child in the tribe comes of age, they show their dedication to the hunt goddess by felling their first beast. They do this unassisted, with wit and weapon alone. They may fell any beast they choose, but they must kill it alone. Given your strength, I am sure this serpent was not your first kill... but you bore no trophies, nor marks of honor. To us, you were as a child. Now though, you proved your prowess. You are no longer a child. A woman grown."You look up at him, earnestly confused. "Does this mean I have to stay..."He smiles and laughs, reaching out and mussing your hair vigorously. You whine gently and lean up into it. It feels like it's been forever. "Of course not. I wouldn't dream of keeping you anywhere you didn't want to be. You are free to come and go as the breeze."Your ears fold back and your eyes widen. "I didn't mean I don't like it here! I-""You have things that you have to do? Of course. Nadia, that is the nature of a warrior. They have missions. Things they must do. Whatever your cause is, you have our support. What we have is yours. You do not lose your old family, but gain a new. Do you understand now?"You consider for a long moment before nodding, a big, dopey smile on your face. You hug him again and he smiles warmly."Stay tonight. I know you don't want to delay, but we'd like to feast with you. Introduce you to our band.">Agree>I can't... I have to go...>Other

>>40890933Get Nadia first, then victory celebration with the Ewoks, err werewolves
>>40891096You mean Djanna.
>>40890809"I can't. I'm sorry... " you shake your head, tail twitching. Emma, taking your cue, rises behind you. "The longer I wait, the worse it will be for Djanna."The Elder nods and reaches into his shirt, pulling out a small leather bag. He offers it to you. You hold out your hand and he sets it in your palm, the clinking of metal on metal heard. It's heavy in your hand. "This should serve to get you what you need that can't be found in the village. Reven has finished with your armor. I'll have it brought. What else do you need?"You feel yourself at a loss. Djanna, and Garush, usually took care of the preparations for your travels. You look back to Emma, and she frowns, putting a fingertip to her lips. "Food, I think? And... maybe a boat... the merfolk said they know the right island, if I'm not wrong... so I think that's about all."The Elder frowns softly. "I'm sorry there's not much more we can offer. Of course you'll have food, and our fastest boat. Cain will go with y-""We should be fine on our own." Emma cuts in, looking to Cain with lowered eyes and a soft sniff. "No offense, but our sister, our problem.""Emma, don't be rude..." you frown, turning to look up at her. The Elder quirks a brow, looking between the three of you curiously. Cain seems confused by the denial."But, I can help!" He asserts. "I may not look like much, but I'm a strong navigator, and I can row swiftly. I'll get you to the island in only a few days. Most people don't know the straights through the Growling Torrent like I do. It will take days off the trip."Emma folds her ears back, gritting her teeth. She looks down at you, her tails flicking, as if waiting for your decision.>Take Cain. >Our sister, our problem.ALSO:>Ask the Elder for (Write-In)>Other
>http://pastebin.com/u/Lotus_Eater>>40890809Does Emma not get levels? I'm sort of hoping that battle would have been enough to help her evolve since even Djanna has at least once.That's the only reason I'd delay.
>>40891202They're currently hidden, pending a point in the future. She's not some come-out-of-nowhere badass who's going to outshine the MC, but there's a story reason I'm not showing her levels.I'm keeping track of them, just not in a public form. Forgive me my secrecy.

>>40891162>Our sister, our problem.I get the feeling that this is a choice between an extra party member who makes this area a little easier or not having Kiva pull a Scar and overrun the village with weird island creatures or slavers or something.

>>40892144That's okay, just gives the Hues more time to write their smut.
>>40891162"Emma... the longer we delay, the worse it will be. Cain can get us there quick, and maybe he can help us get through the city too." The younger girl looks unconvinced, but you take her hand with an earnest look. "He can help."Emma sighs and nods finally, pulling her hand away. "Fine... fine. All right, okay? Don't give me that look any more." You smile and nod quickly. Cain rises with a dopey grin. "I need to get my boat ready! Just give me a little bit. We can leave mid-afternoon!" He quickly scurries out the door, the crowd parting before him. The Elder, as if having just noticed them, scowls. "Don't you lazy souls have anything better to do? Off with you! Shoo!" He waves his hands at them as if driving away errant hens, and they scatter off. He shakes his head with a grunt and rises. "You look tired. If you're insisting on leaving today, you should rest. Go have a bath, or take a walk. Enjoy the peace before your journey. The Growling Torrent will not be kind to you." He tousles your hair gently, and Emma's as well as he walks by. To your surprise, she doesn't object to it.Once he's out of the room, Emma casually saunters up in front of you and without another word settles down in your lap, pressing the top of her head up under your chin. Despite yourself, you blush as she nuzzles against you. "What th-""You're mine. My sister and Djanna's. I'm not sharing you with him.""W-what are you talking about?""Sneaking off for a walk at night without taking me along or telling me? The way he looks at you? I may be young, but I'm not dumb. He can't have you. Mine."You take a few moments to process that. The way he looks at you? You have no idea what she could mean.>Take a bath>Take a walk>Go retrieve your armor>Other
>>40892318>Go retrieve your armorThe waifu wars begin... funnily enough its not by any of us. Emma lays her claim!
>>40892318>Take a bathBetter get that salt out of our fur.
>>40892318>Take a bath>Go retrieve your armorWAIFU WAR GO!
>>40892318>>Take a bath
>>40892318>Take a bath>Go retrieve your armor
>>40892318>Take a bathLoosen our muscles now so they take longer to become tight with exertion later.Is Emma suggesting a threesome?
>>40892318>Take a bath"Hold up, I'm younger than you are!"
>>40892436The Lewdness has taken root.It's time to put the quest out of it's misery, before the infection becomes inoperable.
>>40892318>Go retrieve your armorfox is best girlBEST GIRL
>>40892583Anything you want to discuss with Emma while you're doing stuff?
>>40892974What were you talking about? What's going on?
>>40892974>What do you mean by 'Mine'?>What do YOU think I was doing with Cain?>Is there something you want to talk about?
I'd just have it as Nadia being really, really confused. She is going to start babbling questions any second now. Team Emma ftw!
>>40892436Between us, her, and Djanna, probably. Not that I'd be against that.
>>40892318"Of course we're sisters. Why would you have to share me? I don't get it." You whine softly and hug her close. She pats your hands around her chest."Good. Your innocence is cute. Stay just like that." She nods matter-of-factly. You growl playfully and grind your chin into her head. She flails and squeals, trying to get away, but finds herself your captive. Finally, you release her and she hops to her feet. You rise and stretch, stepping from the Elder's home and onto the sandy dirt of the village. You head for the baths, Emma in tow behind you. Soon enough, the two of you are bare and sweating upon a bench, a heavy curtain dividing the long log bath house between male and female sides. There are a few other human girls inside, chatting amongst themselves in a heavily accented language you barely recognize as common to this area. As near as you can tell, most people speak some variation of the same tongue, with regional dialects and little linguistic tics. At least, that's what Emma and Djanna had seemed to observe along the way. You'd just become a bit more conscious of it as you'd been made aware, and now? You still can't understand what these girls are talking about. Emma sighs beside you, leaning her head on your shoulder. "I can't believe people do this willingly. I know it's going to be worth it when we're done, but come on. It'd be better just to suffer until nightfall."You nod in agreement, your tail, ears, hair, and everything drooping and dripping. You sigh, leaning against the wooden walls of the lodge, panting with your tongue lolling past your lips. "So what did you mean about the way he looks at me? Cain, I mean... and what do you mean I'm yours? We're sisters, I'm not your pet or anything... right? There's not some kitty thing I don't know about? Because you're my sister, and I love you, but-"
>>40893566>"Good. Your innocence is cute. Stay just like that." She nods matter-of-factly. Well shit.. she knew exactly what she was saying..
>>40893566"You really don't know? I mean, you haven't seen it? He's been looking at you like a wolf looks at a rabbit ever since we came to the village. I don't like it." She shakes her head, sweat flying from her hair. You wince, closing an eye to block the spray. "Like he wants to eat you.""Eat me? I didn't know humans ate other thinking creatures. At least, I didn't think Cain was the type. He seems so nice.""Maybe it's a hunt goddess thing? That's who that... freak... follows, isn't it? And there's skinchanger in the blood.""No, he's too nice for that. I think if that were the way it was going to be they would have attacked us by now.""Then I don't know..." Emma just shakes her head, leaning forward. "But there's something in his eyes, and-"One of the women giggles softly, daring a look at you two, before turning back to speak in hurried tones to her friend. Emma frowns, an ear perking up, and you shake your head in confusion."What's so funny?" Emma asks, standing. The girl turns to Emma with a knowing grin."Oh, you are young. You would not recognize love."Emma's tails drop like lead weights. "Love?"The huamn woman nods, and your ears twitch. "Yes, love. It's been all the women can talk about. Cain, he can talk about little else. She is strong, she is beautiful, she is valiant. He is quite taken with you, Nadia.""So the look Emma was talking about? The hunger?""Well, you know, don't you? You look of an age, and you have a trophy. There are things a man may wish to do with a woman that-"You manage to keep your scream of dismay inside, rather than letting it out for the world to hear.That's it for tonight, guys. Sorry for the short run. Just am not feeling in top shape tonight. I'll stick around for Q&A if you want it, but otherwise I'm just going to lay down and try not to die.
>>40893603Thanks for running, boss. Hope you feel better soon.
>>40893603>and you have a trophy.Elder gave us something thats pretty much a beacon to any eligible males, didn't he.
Okay, question.I don't browse quest threads, nor do I bitch about them, but this is one thing that always puzzles me as I browse the front page.What the fuck does the RE in front of some quests even mean?
>>408936039 updates over 6 hours. Don't think of this as anything since it doesn't take into account the time between updates.>"There are things a man may wish to do with a woman that-"Oh shit, we just invited him to journey with us. We are going to break his heart so bad.
>>40893664I'll do what I can. Thanks for the well-wishes.>>40893676Mmmmmaybe.
>>40893705I'm not sure what you're trying to say.And let the poor boy down easy. You're his first.
>>40893704Is the only vestige connecting these threads to the shit-stain of a Light Novel and manga by the name of RE: Monster which inspired all of this.All you need to know about the inspiration is that it's got a Gary Sue self-insert who is the best ever and can do now wrong, even when he makes the bloody rape-caves.>>40893733Just some senseless statistics, ignore them. Might actually put some thought into them later and make them sensible, I've sure got the time for that.
>>40893704Reincarnation, probably. All the protagonists died and woke up as a variety of cute monster girls (and one human).
>>40893704it's a reference to a manga where the protagonist is a human that dies and is reborn into a fantasy world as a monster. He then gets 'XP' and can evolve into different, stronger kinds of monster.
>>40893707Hoh boy, I forsee a lot of breaking of mens hearts in the future.
>>40893797Poor Nadia, doomed to sail the /u/ boat, bereft of a litter of her own.
>>40893823Eh, Emma's a cutie, so it's fine with me.
>>40893797Probably, at least until she matures.>>40893823I hope not.
>>40893823With all these blessing from the God's shes getting, mixed with her innocence she could accidentally ask for a litter and be granted it while remaining a virgin
Something I requested in the draw thread.
>>40893823Well. Out of the two girls we've got Emma a best.
>>40893897I can actually see that happening.
>>40893919Nice. I didn't know Nadia was blond, though.
>>40893968Somebody colored it. Here's the original.
>>40893968Artistic licencing on attributes man. I think she is blond due to the blessings of Yra but I could be wrong.Rest of it just keep your own head cannon. I prefer the idea of snow white bold.
Emma a shit.Garush a best.Half-orc pups when?
>>40894681Garush is Djana's.We don't have a mate yet.
>>40894756>Not wanting all three girls to have broods from the orc so they're all bound by blood
Oh hey a new Re:Monster just got translated.
>>40895508Don't forget about how he boned that man-killing dryad so hard he converted her to the Church of the Holy Black Orc Cock.
>>40895629Wait, he wut? Is this from the fucking books...?
>>40896067Since the manga appears to skim over 'naughty' stuff the books goes into detail about i.e. the size of the MC's dick, I'd say that yes, this does indeed happen in the books just because the manga does not appear to be the kind of manga that would WANT dryad dickings to occur.
>>40896067>Wait, he wut?
>>40896110>>40896384Uh...Are we talking about the same thing? I was talking about Dragon Age...
>>40896390I can see how you could be confused since I'm talking about RE: Monster, the manga and light novel.
So did we just doom Nadia to spending days at sea with some guy who wants to bone her?
>>40898088Heh. Dog girl. Bone. Cute.
>>40886522>RulesHow about just not being a dick? It usually works.
What the fuck did I miss here...
>>40896384And this is why we ignore the source material.
>>40900231Going to continue?
>>40900339Is there anyone else here?
>>40900231Im still laughing at the concept of Nadia being too scared of a relationship to accidentally get a litter from the Gods.
>>40900453Assuming she needs a partner's essence to make the kids "whole" and not just divine constructs, what would her litter be like with the different people in her life?
>>40900569Morning. How goes?Forgot I have an appointment in a hour. If people are willing, I can run a session when I get done with that. I'll take my laptop, find a place to set up. God I love being portable.
>>40900648Pretty alright. Whenever's best for you. Feeling any better?
>>40900702A bit. Paid some sleep debt, ate a normal meal that didn't consist of whatever I could grab at work because I woke up late.
>>40900648Could you please stop bumping these things through the night? If you want to disappear for twelve hours, just start a new thread.
>>40902615The call has been heard. I ran into a little bit of trouble, nothing serious, but I'm about home and I can run a quick thread.
>>40900729Give a blip on Twitter when you're ready to go, K?
>>40907681He's already running.>>>40906637
