>>41876343So, how huge is Ellen now? I wished I asked this two nights ago, but now I have this burning desire to know now.
>>41876438We're mediumly huge, Not bad for only a first tier class huh?>>41876343Sadly I believe the drawfag who was going to color the picture we talked about yesterday bailed.
As mentioned, you aren't Ellen today, but instead someone who didn't run off into an ambush. A meeting with the Vautou and their leader, the rogue Deadlord Simia, is still looming after the likes of Cheryl, Mitchell, and a bishop named Maria arranged it, and you will begin the morning after Ellen, Quidel, Mimon, Yancy, and Katina's disappearance.Whose perspective shall this side of events be from?>A. Stefyn, a myrmidon with a desire to redeem his past cowardice and villainy.>B. Garrus, the axe-wielding crown prince of Neir.>C. Zoe, a pegasus knight and close friend of Ellen's>D. Gorman, a Hero in his own right and mentor of Ellen>E. Write-in (any party member besides those who have been separated from the party)>>41876438She'll probably be HUGE enough for a promotion surprisingly soon.
>>41876480>D. Gorman, a Hero in his own right and mentor of Ellen
>>41876480Also, in the effort of being fair, since this is an arc-affecting decision like the "who should we cover first?" from the previous thread, this vote will also be five minutes longer than the usual maximum.
>>41876480>A. Stefyn, a myrmidon with a desire to redeem his past cowardice and villainy.Because why not
>>41876480>>E. Write-in (any party member besides those who have been separated from the party)CherylBecause its fun being the upbeat person!
>>41876480>A. Stefyn, a myrmidon with a desire to redeem his past cowardice and villainy.
>>41876473I thought they just said that they would look for someone who would be able to.
>>41876699I know, And i'm him, I found someone but i believe they bailed on the request.
>>41876473The real question is, are we huge enough to completely escape prison and rescue the magician general's twin children, while mediating between two hostile individuals, continuing to surprise the bespectacled brother of a potential love interest, and not getting knocked out of unconscious near the end of it all? Personally, I believe we'll get through everything but the last obstacle. We will get knocked out cold after we escape.
>>41876778And as some would suggest, after being knocked out you would be thrown into literal hell, every single main character is dead offscreen, and you would be railroaded through my magical realm for the next 100 threads.
>>41876820> ...every single main character is dead offscreen...NOOOOOO~! Not Cheryl! She's my sismance! We only got to hang out with her only ONCE! Curse you Ellen for having a soft, but quite possibly hard, head!
>>41876692>>41876551Your perspective changes from murderer of childhood friends to murderer of childhood friends. Time shifts back. Were this in a visual medium, a subtitle saying "that morning, Elza Oasis" would appear now.This bed is nice and soft, but you still weren't able to get all that much sleep. You don't sleep much anyway, but yesterday in particular you were... worried.Sure, Mitchell got back fine, but Ellen, Quidel, Biff's brother, and even Katina and her super-powerful bodyguard are just... gone. That Logan guy blames himself, as does Katina's poor mother, but they were both in a meeting at the time!You can't even imagine how much more stressed everyone who was actually friends or family of the missing persons must be, but at least you were able to get a couple hours of unrestful shuteye after a restless Dama came to provide you some company.Now she's curled up in literally all of your blankets and sheets, but you didn't exactly have the heart to fight this anyway.>A.

>>41877103Damnit and i liked Dama.
>>41877018>>41877025>>41877103Dama doesn't usually seem so... well, at ease. Employing your myrmidonly swiftness and lack of lumbering, you attempt to rise up without disturbing your... What is she to you, exactly?You don't want to jump to conclusions, so you resolve not to think about it until you can actually talk about this with her. For now, you take to quietly going through your morning routine, suiting up, wearing your killing edge at your side.Looking out the window of the Tower of Longevity is enough to tell you why your companion isn't quite awake yet: it's still just the break of dawn, the night sky just barely being drowned out by the rising sun.You're all expected to head out to the edge of town first thing in the morning, just about.>A. Head to where you're supposed to>B. Opt to walk around town a bit first>C. Wait for Dama to wake up>D. Wake Dama>E. Write-in

>>41877294>>D. Wake Dama
So we're still going to have Ellen hate his guts even if we learn something from playing as him since it's IC for Ellen right?
>>41877492We indirectly (that's my story and I'm keeping it) killed the love interest of a love interest and killed a love rival and kept on alive. If Ellen reflects and assumes all this, I say she has learned something similar.
>>41877334>>41877375Gently, you nudge the wolf, whispering her name.She growls and you recoil. "Sorry about that...""Nngh... What time is it?""Sorry, I just... Felt like getting a headstart on getting to where we're supposed to. I didn't want to leave you in here after... Yeah...""Thanks." Despite the tired, uninterested tone of her response, you're sure she's sincere. She seems the type who would be stressed out by suddenly being left alone, even with the most benign of explanations. You try to ignore the fact that a lot of dogs are like that, too. This is already a bit awkward as it is without further comparisons like that.Anyway, Dama gets herself thrown together quickly, stretching and yawning.>A. Head right to where you're supposed to>B. You've got time. Find someplace for an early breakfast>C. Write-in?And while that goes on...>D. Have that conversation you planned right now>E. Now really isn't the best time, and you have things to do. This is something with no harm in putting off for later.
>>41877634>B. You've got time. Find someplace for an early breakfast>D. Have that conversation you planned right now
>>41877678Nip this in the bud! Nip it! Although, isn't Stefyn the cowardly type? Or has he grown out of it since his encounter with always-resentful Ellen?
>>41877732Nah just probably better to bring it up sooner than later.
>>41877732Or we could always just let Stefman have this. I'unno, I feel like he deserves it with all the abuse we give him.
>>41877732>Or has he grown out of it since his encounter with always-resentful Ellen?Yeah no.
>>41877678>>41877710>>41877732You find yourself deciding to see if there's anywhere in Elza Oasis where you and Dama can have a quick breakfast, since you're up earlier than necessary anyway."I'll pay if you... promise not to eat enough to bankrupt the army," you joke, and she agrees in good enough spirits to not overdo things.Over breakfast somewhere close to where you're supposed to meet everyone else soon, and already on your third cup of coffee, Dama notices that something's on your mind. "I can tell when something's up, Stefyn."Sighing, you ask, "er, don't take this the wrong way, but... what are we, exactly?"Her head perks up a bit, asking you with a mouthful of food, "what d'you mean?""I-I mean that we've been hanging out a lot ever since we met, and I feel like we've gotten pretty close, and... And after all that..."Dama nods a bit, swallowing her food, "go on.""I-I just want to make sure we're on the same page about... Well, whatever we are to each other."Teasingly yet bluntly, she asks, "this is just some pussyfooty way of saying you're falling for me, isn't it?">A. Er, yeah, pretty much>B. Of course!>C. Um...>D. Deny it>E. Write-in?
>>41877961>B. Of course!
Now I'm wondering whether Cheryl is a gossiper. We could of heard someone juicy stuff that one night now that I'm thinking about it.
>>41878007>>41878022>>41878032>>41878043"Of course! In the time we've come to know each other, you've just... I didn't want to make things weird by confessing sooner, but... I'm certain of it."Dama actually turns a bit red as she responds, "and here I thought you wouldn't have the guts to be the first to admit it... I mean, if you couldn't bring yourself to after all that... I was this close to just spelling it out for you!""Then... why didn't you speak up earlier?""I wanted to see if you could do it!" Dama smiles, actually looking somewhat mischievous.About a half an hour or so later, everyone else is actually by the edge of town. Dama hasn't left your side, being... almost embarrassingly affectionate (you keep stopping yourself short of "like a dog." Newfound girlfriend or not, it still feels strange to think about her characteristics in such a regard).By default, the two of you end up hanging around Mitchell as you wait to head out. He doesn't comment on you two, in fact having known this was coming ages ago.>A. Ask how his friend is>B. Ask how the pre-arrangement went>C. Ask how Mitchell's doing>D. Write-in dialogue
>>41878299>C. Ask how Mitchell's doing>A. Ask how his friend is
>>41878299>C. Ask how Mitchell's doing
>>41878299>A. Ask how his friend is>B. Ask how the pre-arrangement went
>>41878425>>41878346>>41878409"How was arranging the meeting, Mitch?"Mitchell quickly rattles it off. "Spoke to Clovis and his escorts, they went in to talk to Simia, he told us that Corneria and King Drasma should come by tomorrow.""Speaking of Clovis... Uh, how, is he?""He seemed... well, upset about the recent passing of ex-chief Oiseau, but obviously he's still second-in-command of the Vautou and stuff."Whispering to you, Dama says, "he seems on edge."You quietly agree, asking, "er, Mitch, you alright, man?""Yeah, guess I'm just... bit sketchy on how the hell those five got nabbed. I doubt any old bandits of even bird-bandits could do that, which means... I figure someone was expecting them, someone told them to wander the desert like that, maybe even that Simia chick was around." After that, he adds, "just... all of you be careful, even if the Vautou won't be fighting us. We're probably expected by some other interlopers.""Then we'll just actually get around to doing some damage to those guys!" Dama says enthusiastically and seriously.>A. Agree with Dama>B. You're not so sure...>C. Stay quiet>D. Talk to someone else? (specify)
>>41878663>C. Stay quiet
>>41878663>>C. Stay quiet
>>41878690>>41878731We're so in the zone with Stefyn, guys. So in the zone.
>>41878690>>41878731"Yeah, you're strong and all, but don't be an idiot," Mitchell chides, "plus, Simia's a volatile sort. Even if no one interrupts the meeting, she might up and take something as a hint of attack and turn the whole Vautou Territory on us right in their headquarters. The entire Southernmost part of Heim is under their control, you know, 'cept for maybe the coast... But we shouldn't plan on sandwiching ourselves between pirates and Vautou."Dama sighs. "I'll be careful.""Thank you."Soon enough, General Corneria is politely telling King Drasma that he should let her handle the actual negotiation and discussion, considering that they both know how quick he is to jump to the most violent solution, and she will NOT have anyone spoiling her chances to find whoever has her children. Dama ends up excusing herself to speak to Salia and Garrus, still distraught over the disappearance of Quidel and the rest just yesterday.You decide to just spend your own time traveling talking with Mitchell, still not entirely certain how comfortable people besides your few close companions are with your presence.>A. Talk about Simia/Vale>B. Talk about his suspicions>C. Talk about the missing people (specification allowed)>D. Just skip to their base
>>41879024>A. Talk about Simia/Vale
>>41879024>A. Talk about Simia/Vale>B. Talk about his suspicions
>>41879024>>C. Talk about the missing people (specification allowed)So, who do you think took them and why?
>>41879053>>41879079"It's... still weird to think that this happened to Vale... I mean, I guess she's Simia now, but I don't know if I'll be able to keep the differences apart when it comes down to the wire.""Stefyn, man, I get where you're coming from. Losing a student... sucks. But just... If all goes well, you won't be fighting her, so just keep from calling her her old name.""I don't really like the way you say 'if all goes well,' Mitch.""Okay, then, if it's too much for you, just... I don't know, do that thing you always do.""Avoid confrontation?""Eheh, yeah, now you're getting it!"You talk about more mundane things and take friendly potshots at yourself and... yourself.Things don't go nearly as planned, however, as you approach the ancient temple that is now the Vautou chief's headquarters, sun beating down on your lot. Simia stands angrily and stares toward the leaders of your pack (which is to say Corneria and Logan, Drasma just a ways behind upon Khozen), sword already in her hand.Yvette ends up walking forward along with the magical duo, noticing the ominousness of the Deadlord's stance."Oh, no way..." Mitchell says, as though he's realized something. "Clovis, you bastard.">A. Get closer>B. Ask what he means>C. Do you mean to say... (suggestion)>D. Get back>E. Write-in
>>41879502>B. Ask what he means>A. Get closer
>>41879502>B. Ask what he means
>>41879582>>41879594"Wh-what do you mean?""I bet he didn't say we were here for a meeting at all. He said whatever he could so he and his own guys could send Simia and anyone who supports her straight into a bunch of fights."True to Mitchell's suggestion, Simia and several winged bandits start attacking the people in the front of the party, Simia herself squaring off with Yvette. Several of the guys surround King Drasma from all angles in the air.You attempt to run closer to the situation with Mitchell, only to be separated and surrounded by feathered fiends.About five or six surround you, attacking you in rapid succession to keep you disoriented and unable to check up on others. They're all wielding some sort of dagger.>A. Try to break past them!>B. Try to cut through them!>C. Keep on the defensive!>D. Write-in!
>>41879776>A. Try to break past them!
>>41879776>C. Keep on the defensive!
>>41879776>>C. Keep on the defensive! We're not Ellen here.
>>41879904>>41879980You keep playing defensively and light on your feet, unable to rely on brute strength or intimidation like some of your companions, instead biding your time and just making your best effort not to get stabbed.Several arrows come flying your way, knocking two of your attackers out of the sky with a cry and scaring the other three or four off."Th-thanks, Mitch!" You wave in the direction of the arrows' shooter, continuing to get closer to the biggest threat of the bunch for the moment. You see your girlfriend, transformed, beating away anyone who tries to lay a hand on the princess as the pegasus sisters do the same. Garrus is keeping as much heat off of Yvette as possible as Corneria, that Maria girl, and Nat stand out of the action, throwing around a physic stave apiece whenever someone looks too hurt. They are protected by Logan's bael summons.You're not sure where the others are in the chaos, but you're sure they're alive.>A. Head into the attacking horde to help other knights>B. Stay where you are>C. Get to Salia and co.>D. Approach Simia>E. Look around the fringes of the temple. Mitchell expects companyAnd speaking of Mitch...>F. Have him follow you>G.

>>41880231>D. Approach Simia>G. Have him go for something in particularWhy isn't the one guy with a bow helping the king out?
>>41880335>>41880405You start to tell Mitchell to help the king, but he's already on it, Cheryl and Zoe doing the same (Monica continues stubbornly protecting her charge exclusively).In the distance, you hear Robert exclaim, "this sure would be an easier task if we had some damned WIND MAGIC, MIMON."Anyway, you end up reaching Yvette and Simia, still clashing, still intense. Neither of them notices you, but Garrus at least gives you a passing glance as he continues batting birdmen away.>A. Try to say something (specify)>B. Attack>C. Turn back>D. Stand and observe until you know you're not potentially getting in the way>E. Write-in action
>>41880589>In the distance, you hear Robert exclaim, "this sure would be an easier task if we had some damned WIND MAGIC, MIMON."Is he whining that Mimon isn't there right now or is Minon there?
>>41880589>Help Garrus but keep an eye on the fight with Simia.
>>41880653Second! I guess we can't help but try to make her remember of her old self?
>>41880643Mimon is still MIA.
>>41880676Yup, Pretty much, I'm expecting we'll have to block a fatal blow to Yvette.
>>41880653>>41880676You fight alongside the prince, helping keep people from going after Yvette as well as observing the fight from up close.At one point, after you manage to disarm and scare off another one, Garrus says, "uh, hey, what's Mitchell running off towards?""Oh, no...""Wh-why oh no?"You explain the probability of the other Deadlords drawing nearer, which Simia and Yvette hear just moments before Simia was about to take another swing."Wait, what?! H-how did they find out I was here!""Er, Mitchell thinks that your right hand, uh... Clovis..."Simia growls. "He said he was taking our best birds to intercept you guys..."Yvette responds, "we never once ran into him on the way here."Shit... Why didn't I realize? He said you guys were coming to get me! Everyone, change of tactics! Defend from everyone BUT these guys! If you see any of Second Wind Clovis' squadron, especially with other Deadlords, kill them on sight!"The Vautou attacking your friends fall back, and generally both parties take to finding places around the temple to stand guard.King Drasma lands, chugging a vulnerary. "By the gods, we've all been duped... The real fight has only just begun, thanks to the efforts of your thief friend."Speaking of... Mitchell still hasn't come back since running off triggered this discussion.>A. Go after him!>B. Just get inside!>C. Ask what you should do!>D. Write-in!
>>41881021>A. Go after him!
>>41881021>>A. Go after him!I dunno how many times he saved our rear ends, but we gotta return the favor.
>>41881021>A. Go after him!I feel like Stefyn should be super against having people die on his watch
>>41881103Especially if they're his bros.
>>41881081>>41881087>>41881103You immediately start running in the direction Mitchell took, only to be stopped by the large, hand of Dama on your shoulder."Where do you think you're going?!" She demands to know."Y-yeah, I mean, if Deadlords and super-tough bandits are coming from that way, Stefyn, I don't know if you should...""I'm not going to run away when Mitchell needs me again!"Garrus blinks. "Er, wasn't that last thing he needed you for, well, robbing my home castle?""You're missing the point entirely, Garrus!" Dama shouts out, "and I know you won't make it alone, Stefyn.""I... I'm coming too, then.""Prince Garrus, I cannot condone this," Yvette immediately responds."Then come along with us!" Drasma says, swooping down. "I for one look forward to another chance to square off against Deadlords!"You, Drasma, Garrus, Dama, and Yvette head forward.Quickly, you run into Mitchell, staring down a muscular-looking Vautou with a single earring. Behind and beside the birdman, more of them, as well as Tigris and a shadowey Halberdier you don't recognize, but are certain is also a Deadlord.>A. Watch what happens for a moment>B. Approach Mitchell immediately>C. Stay back>D. Write-in
>>41881289>B. Approach Mitchell immediately
>>41881289I got a bad feeling about this. >B. Approach Mitchell immediately
>>41881320>>41881349You quickly come to your friend's side, but he doesn't acknowledge you immediately."Clovis! Think about what you're doing, who you're siding with!"The muscular Vautou responds, "oh, I am, Mitchell! Why should some... Some interloper be allowed to rule simply because she came in and butchered Chief Oiseau? Only we should have control over ourselves, and Simia is not one of us. Get your knights to let us at her and I will rejoin those literal-minded cowards who bow to her.""I wouldn't have the power to offer that even if I had any desire to.""As the person with the MOST power, I can attest to our unwillingness. 'Dain gets Simia back' is the single possibility I want to avoid the most.""Then Neir and all who support it are enemies of all true Vautou."Clovis rushes forward with a dagger before the archer has time to react, but thankfully you're quicker on the draw, shoving Mitch out of the way. Garrus is the next to attack Clovis, taking him two-on-one as Yvette joins behind him.Tigris and "Mus," as Tigris calls him, begin their own slow advances as the rest of your enemies fly forward, most outright ignoring your bunch to rush to the temple."Saved my damn life there, Stefyn... What do we do now?">A. Square off with Clovis>B. Go toe-to-toe with Tigris>C. Try and Match Mus>D. Get back, defend the Vautou headquarters
>>41881592>B. Go toe-to-toe with TigrisWe're a myrmidon! How is someone like us going to get hit by an axe?

>>41881592>>B. Go toe-to-toe with TigrisFuck it. >>41881671We can't let Ellen be the reckless badass now.
>>41881684Not really reckless.
>>41881658>>41881671>>41881684As you confront Tigris, you find yourself... engrossed in a flashback, triggered by his oddly familiar fighting style...Nearly a year ago, you had just learned that Vale had been taken by bandits, and her father had confided in you alone that... That he was being extorted, forced to fight leading that very group, that he wasn't sure Gorman could make it."T-Tabat, I'm... That doesn't seem like the best of ideas."He swung his battle-axe at you, deliberately missing by a few inches, and saying, "you... You should have been there. You swore to teach her, but what good did it do?!""Uh, s-sorry, sir... I really am...""Then make up for it. If I'm going to be damned for her sake, so are you. And if you refuse, if you betray me, if you let our motivations be known to anyone who doesn't know already... You can't just dodge my swings forever."Something had... changed in him, almost overnight. Had these demons always been in this man who saved you from the mountains?"You can't just dodge my swings forever, myrmidon!" Tigris' battle axe nearly knocks you back into the present, with you barely stepping back and avoiding as he embeds the thing in the ground with the sheer force of the swing."Stefyn, man, snap out of it!" Mitchell calls to you.>A. Attack!>B. Stay back! He'll get it out before you can do anything!>C. Write-in?
>>41881931>C. Write-in?Tabat! That's you isn't it? What did they do to you?
>>41881999It's pretty obvious what they did to him anon, Stefyn knows about deadlords.
>>41881999Tabat lost his humanity long before he diedlet's not bother talking to him>A. Attack!
>>41882079>>41882081Bah. So it was too late to add a little dramatic flavor. Fine~!
>>41882163Not everything needs drama anon, Especially bad drama.
>>41881955>>41882066>>41882081You don't hesitate now.You CAN'T hesitate now.Even knowing who this was, perhaps ESPECIALLY knowing who this is, you... you won't hesitate.Mitchell gets a few arrows into Tigris, but it all pales in comparison to your own strike, managing to swiftly circumvent his armor and strike in spots that Tigris must... know are fatal."Of all the... rotten luck, for ways that whelp has messed up summoning us... I've forgotten nothing of who I was. I... regret nothing, however..."The odd, purplish aura that surrounded the Deadlord vanishes, and the body hosting Tigris falls."D... Did I do that?" You glance around. Mus is fighting Dama, Drasma and his wyvern are nowhere to be seen, and Garrus and Yvette continue barely breaking even against the burly birdman.Clovis suddenly stops and says, "peh, you Deadlords are really so weak? I can handle Simia myself, then. Forget your aid!" He then takes to the skies, following most of his henchmen.Mus observes his situation and promptly runs like hell. It's unlikely you can catch up to him without flight or magically-attuned sand-steps, which all Deadlords seem to have as well.>A. Check on everyone>B. Immediately head back>C. Write-in?
>>41882396Fuck meant>B. Immediately head back
>>41882377>>A. Check on everyone
>>41882377>B. Immediately head backI doubt Stefyn want's Vale to die, Even if she doesn't refer to "Vale" anymore.
>>41882455>>I've forgotten nothing of who I was. I... regret nothing, however...Well, maybe Bolse messed up "Vale's" summoning, and she too remembers who she was all along?
>>41882512It'd make sense, She probably wish's she didn't remember though since no one came to rescue her huh?
>>41882377>C. Write-in?ASSIST DAMA
>>41882512Simia has some trace of her past memories, but calling upon them deliberately makes her angry for reasons she can't place.Simia's primary summoning flaw is/was that, since Bolse was completely inexperienced with Necromancy at the time, she wound up being basically a defiant teenager.It's what cost him his hearing.
>>41882531You know, I wonder if her taking control of the Vautou is part of a ploy to gather up an army to go back to the Aum and to rescue Victoria. It could explain why she killed the Vautou's chief, and why she attack Gorman for his supplies.
>>41882598My god we've figured out Octo's plan.....
>>41882627I know I'm stating the obvious here, but you never know, there might be a twist thrown in to surprise us all. After all, it might have been Dio all along.
>>41882571I prefer this better tbh>>41882598There any way to get her memory's back if you decide against this though?
>>41882416>>41882455You immediately head back, none of you having much desire to futilely chase after Mus and all of you having no real desire to let Clovis get your biggest key to saving your friends, onesided or otherwise.By the time you get back, things have actually been pretty much resolved. Clovis is attempting to retreat with several of his followers, but Mitchell manages to shoot him out of the sky. You and Dama end up being the ones to haul him back to the temple, defeated, however."This went... surprisingly well, all things considered..." Garrus says.>A.

>>41882751>>A. Talk to someone in your group (specify)MitchI'm curious on what tipped him of that this whole thing was a giant trap.
>>41882751Also, where the fuck is the king?
>>41882872He flew off to face the horde as it approached the temple.
>>41882905Bad ass king.
>>41882905>He flew off to face the horde as it approached the temple.OH....Ooooh crap.
>>41882794>>41882832"So, Mitch... How did you figure out that this was a setup by, uh..." You point out the guy you're carrying as you walk by a trail of axed-up bodies. Yvette figures those were the poor enemies of Drasma as he flew back towards the temple, and Clovis grins just slightly."When Simia was gonna attack us, that had to mean someone was... dishonest in the exchange of information, since Simia wouldn't have had a reason to pick a fight with us otherwise. Clovis here just happened to be in charge of relaying that message, and he and Oiseau were tight."Fair enough.Anyway, as you walk onwards, you actually see Khozen fly Northwest overhead, carrying the staff of Katri in his mouth.Looking up, Garrus wonders, "huh. Where's dad going this fast? I hope he didn't decide to fly off on his own again...""That murdering bastard's already back on his feet?"Yvette yanks Clovis out of you and Dama's hands, staring at him intensely and demanding, "what do you mean 'back on his feet?!'">A. Stick around>B. Get back to the temple
>>41883143>A. Stick around
>>41883181>>41883403"Yeah, he was just... cutting my fellow True Vautou out of the sky with impunity. I wasn't going to allow such a thing to happen, especially with him right over the temple, and so... Amazing what you can't do when you cannot fly with your own body.""But..." Garrus responds, "even then, dad wouldn't just... fly off like that. And Khozen would never abandon the rightful ruler of Neir, it's... O-oh no...""So you're saying that King Drasma is just...""And worse than that, apparently it means nothing to Khozen if the heir to the throne has long abandoned Neir."Clovis responds obliviously, "wait, I'm kinda missing the point here..."Practically screaming now, Yvette tells the birdman, "do you not understand the scale of what you have done?! Khozen and the Staff of Katri are as we speak delivering themselves to Lars, and consequently to the Dain empire!">To be continued next threadI had a couple endpoints in mind, but this felt like the most appropriate one to actually stop at.Next time, we'll be back to Ellen's prison adventures.Thanks for playing. As always, follow us on twitter @qmgrandflocto, send us questions on http://ask.fm/qmgrandflocto and I'll be around to talk about shit in-thread awhileYes, this was the completely unavoidable demise. I just wasn't sure when or how it would happen, but the implications wrote themselves.
>>41883424>as we speak delivering themselves to Lars, and consequently to the Dain empire!"Well you see Lars had a bit of an accident....SAY HELLO TO EMPRESS ELLEN RULER OF DAIN!
>>41883484Khozen will literally only let the person he deems as having birthright to rule Neir ride him, whether or not they're actually willing or deserving. He was actually outright hostile towards Garrus in the past, but I don't know if I actually ever brought that up in-thread.
>>41883424Guys... hear me out. But I got an idea on how to get everyone, including Ellen, out. All I need is a vulnerary, a wyvern, a fire spell, we got a devil sword, but I am going to need a rubber band, some duct tape, two to three paper clips, and a little time to MacGyver something out of nothing. I know it can work, guys.
>>41883484We're in a bad spot. Being trapped in that room. We're pigeon holed in there unless the prince doesn't have his entourage already there. Maybe busting out wasn't such a good idea?
>>41883575>a rubber band, some duct tape, two to three paper clipsSadly those don't exist
>>41883424>Next time, we'll be back to Ellen's prison adventures.Just when I was having fun being Stefyn too.
>>41883614>Being trapped in that room.Well you see there's this thing c-MOOOOB HIIIIIIM!>>41883635Eh it's interesting but i liek playing as Ellen more.
>>41883624It's okay. We already got the devil sword. We just need is a vulnerary, and a fire spell. We can get the wyvern when Khozen comes to pay the prince a vist.
>>41883654>Well you see there's this thing c-MOOOOB HIIIIIIM!I don't want to give the QM ideas, but we're fucked if I was the QM. FUCKED@
Well I bet that Wyrmslayer Ellen just picked up will come in handy?
>>41883614Breaking out was a good idea. It's just naturally not going to be easy to pull off. Remember that help is still on the way.>>41883635Should he just consistently be the POV character until we get Ellen back to the rest of the knights, or should it be a vote every non-Ellen thread?>>41883670It takes awhile to travel an entire country. You should already be out by the time Khozen catches up to Lars.
>>41883695Nah do it like you were planning to.
>>41883722I only have a general plan for how to get the non-Ellen team from point A to point B. As you saw at the very start of this thread, that path could even star literally any character during a given part.
>>41883768The switching thing, Ellen then Stefyn then back to Ellen, Rinse and repeat.
>>41883795I think I'll just put it up to a vote again next knights thread. The likes of Reese, Logan, Nat (imagine being stuck as a healer in a combat-intensive chapter, though) Garrus, and much of the cast in general could benefit from a moment or two of POV.
>>41883872>(imagine being stuck as a healer in a combat-intensive chapter, though)
>>41883937Really, though, without Drasma. all living and available staff-wielding mentors for Natalie are magic-users. She could probably promote soon.
>>41883970Damnit, That means she can't go on the healer path? that sucks.
>>41884010Nat is... literally a healer. I was saying that the other magic-users she could realistically study with in the near future are a Sage (Corneria) and a Bishop (that Maria person who came along for pre-negotiation but didn't join the actual meeting)Maybe Drasma got to her enough for her to try to be a war cleric. It's very unlikely, since Nat doesn't seem too physically strong, but who knows until the time comes to class up?
>>41884079Ahhh okay, Nevermind then.
Is this the fourth FE quest?
>>41883872I wouldn't be too strongly opposed to being Nat, and experiencing the strangeness of her BF.
