Right now, for a lot of complicated reasons that boil down to "who the fuck knows," you're borrowing CPU Purple Heart's body. She's the goddess of Planeptune, and the deity of all things Sega, so you're enjoying a nice big power boost right now as you fly through the air (under your /own/ power and not at terminal velocity, which is an even nicer bonus).That's it. That's the only bright spot to this whole sorry mess, and you're dead certain it ain't worth it.-MAI WAIFUS,- the towering pile of vines burbles. Mush-mouthed and indistinct as it is, the monster's voice is still loud enough to boom across the shattered landscape around-Frowning, you shake your head (or rather, Neptune's pretty braided head). Scratch that: the voice is echoing inside your head. Whether by design or by some underhanded mental trick, the monster's wormed its way into your minds.Down below, more thorny vines slither out from hidden crevices, their dry, parched outer layers cracking and splitting right down the middle, serpentine appendages shedding their skins to reveal... glistening gray tentacles, slime dripping down their lengths. More and more of those plant-like sheathes slough off, and before long, that two-story mass of vines resembles nothing more than a squirming mass of earthworms or an octopus orgy or-(Cont.)
>>45687004A chill goes down your spine, and you barely manage to resist vomiting. It was inevitable, you /know/ it was inevitable because this twisted universe loves girls and making girls suffer and making girls suffer with /tentacles/, you KNEW that the damn things would make an appearance somehow, but- that monster is in your fucking MINDS, what the everloving /hell/!!You wish you could curse more, but down below, CPU White Heart is in a bad spot.-WONDERFUL DEE EFF SEE,- the monster burbles in contentment, like a discerning buyer examining someone's wares."Gerroffame, you-" Blanc snarls, smashing reaching appendages into bloody goo with every swing of her maul; however thanks to whatever Arfoire did to her, she's not nearly up at full fighting potential, and she's too damn slow like this. One tentacle already has her by the leg, wrapping up her calf and knee and forcing her to thrash around in an ever tightening radius; it won't be long before more of the things lash her down further, and that'll be it for her.But you're not going to give this monster time to do that, are you.>[X] [ATTACK!!]With a wild shriek, you force CPU Purple Heart's body into a steep dive, lashing out with her ridiculous zweihander katana thing- immediately, you're off-balance, having underestimated your own divine strength, but that doesn't matter one fucking bit. As it cuts through the air, the glowing sword-girder seems to burn a searing purple trail behind it, and you're forced to blink the afterimage from your eyes.You blink again as the tentacle you were aiming for slides into two gooey halves, followed by five of its neighbors; the bisected appendages flop into a disgusting mess, seeming to deflate before your very eyes.(Cont.)
>>45687021See, you'd pat yourself on the back, but there are literally hundreds more of the things sliding up from the ground, and you have to dodge frantically to avoid getting snagged."Are you shitting me? Is this entire floating landmass a monster or something!?" Blanc roars below you, grabbing a bolder tentacle and pulping it with her bare hand.Right. Too many damn tentacles, and you're basically a flying melee fighter with a sharp blade. If you're fighting this thing, you need a damn plan.[ ] [DRIVE FOR THE CENTER] Damn the torpedoes, fuck defense, full speed ahead! Kill the heart, and the rest will fall; you're fast enough for that, you're a goddess right now![ ] [MAKE IT BLEED] This monster has to have some sort of upper limit of how many tentacles it can lose. Keep away from its main mass and chop it down from the inside out. Gotta go fast, motherfucker.[ ] [PINPOINT THOSE RESTRAINTS] Dance around the monster's reach and slash at the tentacles restraining Blanc- you'll stay out of trouble and free your ally in one fell swoop, though you'll might give the monster time enough to shake off its sleepiness.[ ] [MORE FIREPOWER] If you get caught in those tentacles TOO, you and Blanc are pretty much doomed.

A bad part of me wants to flub all our rolls against this thing
>>45687955You should be seriously ashamed.It would be nearly acceptable if it where a normal tentacle being, but against a being uttering those kind of words there should never be anything other than eradication.

>>45688560I am tempted to write lewd funtime writefaggotry for this...
>>45687145>[X] [PINPOINT THOSE RESTRAINTS!]>DC.... PASSED!Punching straight through the sick bastard's internal organs and killing it thoroughly appeals to you; diving headfirst into that clusterfuck while wearing a bikini does not. Sure, this is Neptune's body and she miiight deserve getting goosed by a few tentacles, but that doesn't change the fact that you're wearing her body and would walk funny for a month AND don't want to, y'know, fucking die.The frontal approach is right out. Too damn risky. As for making it bleed, the monster is barely reacting to your attacks-"Fuck you. Fuck you!" Blanc's fury isn't nearly back up to her usual explosive levels, but her furnace is clearly getting stoked. One tentacle's caught her wrist, stopping her from properly using her maul, so she's savaging her attacker with her bare hands, slime gushing everywhere as she messily tears the flesh slithering all around her.-DELICIOUSSSS,- the monster booms. Somewhere in that looming, writhing mass, the balefully glowing lights- eyes?- suddenly dim, as if going half-lidded. -OH YESSS, LITTLE GIRL, YOUR RESISTANCE ONLY MAKES ONIICHAN HAAARDERRRRR.-...Suddenly, you're calm, almost detached. Absent-mindedly, you slice a questing tentacle and look down, your eyes meeting Blanc's flat red gaze. Wordless agreement passes between you, goddess-to-(provisional)-goddess, and a peaceful sense of determination fills you from head to toe.This thing's gonna die.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qheHsjZg9zsThis thing's gonna die, and Blanc's gonna help you kill it.(Cont.)
>>45689149..I'm terrified to ask for a source because I don't know whether that's porn...
>>45689238Adrenaline surges through your veins and you go from zero to sixty in a heartbeat, angling straight down toward the ground. The monster's appendages are deceptively slow and peaceful, but writhing tentacles soon fill your vision and your entire world as they surge up to meet your headlong charge, cutting you off from the sky as they form a cage around you-And not one touches your skin.Relaxing just slightly, you let the Nep-Nep take over, and CPU Purple Heart's muscle memory saves both your asses. Neptune's sword effortlessly dances before you and carves a path through, malevolent feelers reduced to so much mangled meat. You don't stop there; the bloody slime suspended midair doesn't even have time to start falling before you boost through (ew ew ew EUGH), and you spin sword-first toward Blanc.The world flips upside-down, the star-studded cosmos briefly seeming to pass beneath your feet, and your sword unleashes the wrath of Nintendo upon the poor unfortunate tentacle monster.The grin splitting CPU White Heart's face is terrifying to behold. "Heh."-MY WAIFUS,- it burbles too late, tentacles grabbing uselessly as Blanc puts all she has into flying straight up, a glowing white rocket hurtling into the stratosphere. You can't capitalize on her freedom, or the distraction she makes; forewarned by the magical ability known as "pattern recognition," you barely have time to boost back out of the way as the slender girl comes screaming back down like the fist of the goddess that she is, holy flames lighting up the hyperdimensional void."EAT THIS, JACKASS!"The impact rattles your eardrums, and you have a picture-perfect shot of Blanc's hammer smashing through fifty tentacles, missing the main mass by a hair, and embedding itself into the rock beneath the monster.(Cont.)
>>45689238Is it an eggplant plant?
>>45689271Slowly, surely, the rock cracks in a ragged circle around Blanc's point of impact, white flames shooting out from the island's core, before nearly half the island gives way with a colossal CRUNCH, shattered fragments the size of small buildings hurtling into outer space.And freed from the rocks' embrace are bones, wrapped in desiccated vines.For a moment, you can't help but stare at the devastation Blanc has wrought, and that's when the monster makes its move.-ENOUGH OF THAT.- The voice is no longer indistinct; it's clear as a bell, and imposingly deep. -MY WAIFUS. MY CHOICE.-Damaged, oozing, and missing a third of its mass, the tentacles shift nonetheless, and /something/ pulses out from the monster's core."Goddammit." Blanc immediately boosts back, her eyes narrowed as she braces herself. "Urist! Watch out, it's-"-MY GAME,- it whispers silkily, and you stiffen as something cold and calculating slithers into your mind.>U͡r̂ͤ̿ͩ̾ͮiͮͤͧ̈́͗̽͞s̈́̿ͤ̔̇t̂̿̓ͪͭ ̃̍ͯ̐͐Tͮw͂̽̈́͛͑ͫ͜e͒͋ͬͧ͞lͭf̊͑ͥ̋ͫ̓͢t̾̓̐h̆ͬͨb̒̍ͯ́̾̇͗͡a̓̆̄̉͌̍̉y̵̅ ̂͛͢r͋ͨ̅̿ͮͤes̶ͯȉͮ̀̒̈̒̈s̡ͪ̍͌͊ͯt̍̊̔̍s̶ͤ ͣ͆̀t̓̾ͤͭ̾h̨̔ͪͣ͐̃͒̈́e͊͛ͦͤͫ͑̚ROLL d100!

>>45689557That is also fair. Or being smacked out of it by Balnc.
>>45689527To be fair, 3 tries on a 40% chance is something like a 79% chance to succeed on at least one of them.But then again, since when have dice ever obeyed the laws of probability?

>>45689328>DC...........- and like hell you're going to let that monster finish whatever the fuck it's doing.Gritting your teeth, you shake your head and release all fucking limiters. Whatever twisted propulsion system powers CPU Purple Heart's flight hurls you forward so fast that you nearly break your neck, and you don't exactly cut the most dignified figure as you scream in rage, but it's enough.You punch straight through the monster, layers of tentacles giving way like so much string cheese, and the entire physical structure- tentacles on tentacles, supported by tentacles and buoyed by sick twisted dreams of haremhood- collapses into a pile of ooze and gore.And that's it. It's over.You slide to a stop and collapse to your knees as you regain your breath, cold sweat beading on your brow. Shaking off that fucker's mental attack drained you something fierce, but you still manage to lash out a wobbly kick to the tentacle beast's remains. With a grunt, you thrust the point of Neptune's sword into the ground and start levering yourself back up-(Cont.)
>>45691170- but then his strong shoulder slides underneath your arm and brings you back to your feet, and he steadies you with a careful hand."Too close, Urist," your aide mutters dourly, shaking his head. The dark-haired man cuts you a glance, but his bangs fall over his eyes- not that he can do anything about it, since he's got his hands full with you, and you take a grim satisfaction in that. "I swear, if anything happened to you-"Bitch, bitch, bitch, you snap back. In all the years he's adventured with you, he doesn't coddle you like a mother hen when you're a rock-solid dwarf, but now that you've got legs that go all the way up, you're suddenly fucking fragile, this-end-up-only?He sputters indignantly, flushing red, and you roll your eyes. Goddamn dork- you make to shove him away. It doesn't work, because you're a skinny goddess instead of a dwarf, but what the fuck ever- a wry grin tugs at the corner of your mouth, anyway. Never change, you stupid-"I see how it is," Blanc deadpans. She saunters over and shoots your aide a flat stare. "You've got your eyes on those great big stonking tits that her temporary body's got on her. Look, Urist, I'll do you a service- I'll remind him just why flat is justice.""W-Wait, are you serious?" he stammers, looking scandalized. "Come on, Lady Blanc-""Whoops," she deadpans.And that's when CPU White Heart slides in and takes his other arm, all but pressing herself against it, the little minx. She ignores how you stiffens, and as your aide loses his goddamn spaghetti, she gives you this smug, superior /look/, staring straight into your eyes with a strange intensity-(Cont.)
>>45691202Again, something wordless passes between you. But this time, a cold bucket of water goes right down your spine as something's hold over you snaps- and snaps easily, at that."Girls, girls," h̡͠҉e͟͢͝͝ says, putting an arm (no longer warm it's cold and) around both your shoulders. You turn away from Blanc's eyes- was that a flicker of relief?- and stare straight ahead, no longer daring to look straight at your a- at the, the vaguely humanoid thing standing between you.You owe Blanc so, so fucking much for this."Look, we shouldn't be fighting. We have more important things to do- gotta get you patched up." Something brushes your cheek, and it takes all of your willpower not to scream, or even twitch; instead, you growl deep in your throat and shake it off like you would an unwelcome headpat, and h̶̡é̷̛̛͝ chuckles indulgently under his breath.... it's waifus. He's saying that fucking word again.Right. R... right. H̸̨́e̵̷̡ thinks you're still in h̵͢͞i҉̴s̡͢͠ spell. Blanc, too. That's great, because you really don't want to chance getting another blast of whatever the hell that was. You don't want to test Blanc's resistance to it, either.Just as you start preparing yourself for sudden explosive violence, the thing between you and Blanc perks up. "Hey! Isn't that one of your friends up over there?"Your head snaps up, and you crane your neck to stare.(Cont.)
>>45691222Shovel Knight. It's Shovel Knight, and oh Armok she looks like absolute shit, if it hadn't been for that stupid helmet you wouldn't have recognized her because /that's all she's wearing/ from her original outfit.The young adventurer leans on her shovel, breathing raggedly. She's... she's wearing a goddamn school uniform, blazer and pleated blue skirt and knee-high white socks and all. Even worse, it doesn't look much better than she likely feels; she's roughly decent, but she'd be a lot more decent if not for those big ugly rents in her clothing that reveal pale skin and dried blood.Thank fucking god that that horned blue helmet is perched right where it always is, even if it's a little crooked. Though it gives her a lopsided look, she's still wearing her massive gauntlets and gloves, and they're still in one piece.What makes you happiest is that her shovel is covered- hell, it's ENCRUSTED in slime.Shovel Knight sucks in a breath and draws from some reserve of goddamn endless determination, because she's standing right back up like she wasn't ever tired in the first place. Gods, she's been out here for /days/- "Release them, fiend!" she booms, pointing her shovel at the thing between you and Blanc. "Release the innocent gi-"She pauses. You can /feel/ her eyes widening under that helmet, and her shovel wavers, and droops slightly, and-Oh. Oh, shit.Any adventurer seeing two goddesses under this thing's yoke would probably have a slight existential crisis, huh.(Cont.)
>>45691252"Good timing! Girls, let's go introduce her to my hidden friends," ḩ̵͠é̷̡͘ suggests casually, squeezing your shoulders. "I've been meaning to introduce them to you, and to everyone who's in the hyperdimensional void!

>>45691306Okay.Just-... alright.The thing's words, they ARE going through your ears, and they ARE registering in your brain.You realize there's a chance this thing /might/ be batting for Arfoire, because Arfoire is the source of everything that's fucking terrible in Gamindustri, and you can't attribute anything this diabolical to ANY deity, even the perverted unknown makers of the Gamindustri dimension.You are VERY aware that /more/ of these tentacled waifu-screeching grognards slumbering in the hyperdimensional void spells very bad news for your fortress, Hyperdimension (gods, you need to name your fort something clearer than that).Hell, having these things within spitting distance of Gamindustri is /terrifying/, and if you hadn't closed the door to your portal on the way out, you... you can't even FINISH that thought, that's how horrifying it is.So, yeah. You know, on some level, that more information is the key to winning every war, or some philosophical shit like that, and that it could be worth it to play along in the search for more information.It's just that you are completely, absolutely, irrevocably, indisputably, incredibly, INEVITABLY, 1000% done with this sanity-sapping horror.>[X] [NOPE]>[X] [FUCKING NOPE]>[X] [VIOLENCE]>[X] [INDISCRIMINATE VIOLENCE]>[X] [KILL IT WITH EVERYTHING]>[X] [TAKE A SHOWER LATER]>[X] [VIOLENCE LATER, TOO]>[X] [VIOLENCE FOREVER]Determination fills your heart, and suddenly, you know what's going to happen. Shovel Knight's going to lift her trademark weapon back up, but the monster will have noticed that moment of weakness, and then it'll grin to itself and keep trying to psychologically fuck up the young adventurer and open her up to a psychic attack, so you can't raise the monster's suspicions until it's too late-Hey, Blanc.The shorter goddess pins you with slightly panicked glare, but you wink and keep growling- hands off, slutendo slutertainment slut... ystem! He's mine!(Cont.)
>>45693048And then you tense up, and you start /pulling/, your prior words camouflaging imminent violence with playful harem antics bickering. Immediately, Blanc tightens her grip on its arm and follows suit, her eyes glowing imperceptibly."Ow! H-Hey, not in front of the new girl," the monster laughs nervously, playing up the hapless harem protagonist role to the hilt. It ruefully shakes its head at Shovel Knight, not noticing as you and Blanc tense up further and coordinate a quick count of three. "Sorry about that, they're kind of a handful. If I wasn't here to keep them together, they'd be at each others' throa-"The shrill inhuman /howl/ that erupts from the monster's maw is audible even over the sound of one tentacled body being torn straight down the middle as you and Blanc crack it like a fucking wishbone, and it is the most splendid music for your ears.You cut your half of faceless protagonist into messily leaking fifths before kicking off the ground, landing in front of Shovel Knight and keeping your sword up. Behind you, you hear a whimper of sheer relief and the sound of someone falling to her knees.Blanc touches down next to you a moment later, and she's disdainfully wiping down the front of her body with the back of her hand with clear disdain (wasn't there some shady group that would've paid a fortune to see her like this?). "That one was on me," she growls wearily, some of the fire leaking out of her voice. "Should've briefed you on built-in divine defenses that'll blunt the edges of that kind of shit."You shrug helplessly, but you're saved from an answer by- shit, no, you're not saved at all.-I WILL NOT GO DOWN LIKE THIS,- the monster howls, and howls, and /howls/, its voice ringing in your mind and seeming to slice right through to the other side. A much smaller radius of tentacles surrounds its main mass, which itself barely comprises a ten-foot tall mass of writhing, wounded, dried-up thorny vines.(Cont.)
>>45693074A surge of power burns through your vision, setting your nerves alight. Like HELL you're underestimating this thing, now or forever.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAqMj5s0Z8EYou shout out for Blanc as you hurtle forward, swinging your sword like a baseball bat. The first slice severs the tentacular mass from the ground, the second cut nearly jars your arms out of their sockets as your sword embeds deep, and the third, impossibly, knocks the monster up into the sky, its feelers flailing uselessly-And suddenly, CPU White Heart is just /there/, waiting in the air like she'd been there all along."GOT IT!" Blanc roars, not even bothering with her maul. The slight girl cocks her fist back before letting loose with everything she's got- the monster almost disintegrates under her punch. With a sad little wail, what's left slams into the ground hard enough to crack it /again/, a spiderweb of fissures sending spikes of rock up into its body.You catch one last glimpse of a disintegrating humanoid form, a kaleidoscope of plaid and white t-shirt and eyes everywhere and jeans and black hair and tentacles, before it shatters completely.You wait, like, thirty seconds.And THEN you're finally allowing yourself to relax, your breath coming out in ragged gasps as every muscle in your body seems to protest at the exact same time. Fucking /hell/. Fucking hell!You stiffen when a shoulder comes up under your arm, but it's just Blanc. "Come on, up we get," she says. Despite still having the light-blue hair and those ridiculous sideburns, her calm, quiet voice sounds like her un-transformed self again.Y'know what, Blanc counts as an authority figure, like a mayor or a manager, right? And you're a dwarf. So you're pretty much /obligated/ to bitch in her ear (or above her head, what with this height difference) to help yourself get over this shitty experience and not, say, fall to PTSD-ing pieces. (Cont.)
>>45693109That was abso-fucking-lutely ridiculous, you grouse, working off steam. All we did was step out a fucking door, and we get hit with this shit- that's hands down the /worst/ encounter rate ever experienced by adventurer-kind!Blanc favors you with a flat-eyed /stare/ and a frown that looks more like a pout.... what? What's that for?"You sound exactly like Neptune when you complain about things like that," she sighs.You are very proud of yourself for only screaming internally."Right, how about you?" Blanc adds, pushing you back to your feet and turning to Shovel Knight; the younger adventurer's still sitting flat on her ass, looking stunned. "Are you holding up okay?"She swallows heavily. "That..."CPU White Heart frowns. "That?""That was very, very amazing," Shovel Knight whispers, jittering in place. "Two goddesses! Two goddesses working together! The teamwork, the camaraderie, the /trust/ built up between rivals! Eons of battling each other, turned into an ironclad bond culminating in a coupling-""Don't even start. That was /not/ a coupling skill," Blanc shoots back, her eyes narrowed. (Wait, it wasn't? But, wait, no, that's-) "Besides, this isn't CPU Purple Heart. It's Urist.""What!?" Shovel Knight turns to face you, dispelling your train of thought as she climbs back to her feet and... sways a little woozily. "You! You have... grown?"Heh. You clap her on the shoulder, noticing that you're actually taller than her like this. Okay, she clearly isn't all there. C'mon, let's get out of here before something else happens-(Cont.)
>>45693126"Something else is happening."You whirl to stare where Blanc is pointing- the cracks in the ground.Where smaller tentacles are wriggling out, like some sped-up time-lapse video of plants growing.-WAIFUS,- they hiss, summoned by the howling of their recently-murdered broodfatherWelp.[ ] [NOPE NOPE NOPE] OKAY, SAY GOODBYE TO THE ISLAND, GUYS, WE'RE VAMOOSING BACK TOWARD YOUR FORTRESS.[ ] [YAAAAAAAARGH] PURGE THEM, PURGE THEM ALL, BECAUSE THIS IS /BULLSHIT/ AND TYING UP LOOSE ENDS.[ ] [NOW WE'RE NOPING WITH PORTALS] TIME TO PULL OUT THAT SHARICITE DOOR, BECAUSE ANY EXIT IS A BETTER EXIT THAN STAYING HERE, FUCK[ ] [SUMMON HORRIFIC THINGS] HEY, WANNA SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SUMMON AS DWARF FORTRESS WHILE IN NEPTUNE'S BODY?

>>45693136>>45693470>[X] [SUMMON HORRIFIC THINGS]>[X] [YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH]>94 totalThe scene in front of you takes on an almost nightmarish quality, unreal and impossible for your mind to grasp. Tentacles. /More/ tentacles, tiny tips wriggling out of the ground, nudging aside dirt and rocks and the blendered remains of their parent as they seem to swell and /grow/ as the rest of their wet, slimy lengths are revealed-"These things /breed/?" Blanc hisses, hefting her hammer-maul."They... they do," Shovel Knight shoots back, wearily leaning on her shovel like a crutch. "I was caught by a smaller one, it was preparing to take me up here to show off-"Your eyes refuse to focus, and you briefly look beyond the island you're on to stare in the distance. Armok help you, you're already homesick for your crappy little fortress in the middle of the hyperdimensional void, your one bastion of sanity in this goddess-forsaken place. You're past putting up any strong fronts: you just really want to get back there, see Mojang's smiling face, listen to her cheerful prattling, and-- your fortress is right there. Your fortress is right there?? You almost rub your eyes before remembering what's been all over your hands, so you just blink rapidly before staring at that point in the distance. There's a lumpy little wall, barely one story tall and nothing but a blot of gray stone on brown dirt, but it's unmistakably your fortress.Shit, that's right- Shovel Knight's last known location was supposed to orbit close to your fortress soon-ish, and she's right fucking here.You /have/ to eradicate these, these faceless tentacles before they get any closer to your fort.(Cont.)
>>45694517Quietly exhaling, you stick Neptune's sword point-first into the dirt and start reaching inside that... that place where all your power comes from, you don't fucking know. Immediately, an aura of some sort snaps into focus around you, probably haloing your head and causing your hair to waft gently in an invisible breeze.Damn. These goddesses ARE over/flowing/ with power, you'd have to channel for thrice as long just to get this kinda fancy-pants aura going."Nep- /Urist/, what are you doing?" Blanc corrects herself, not looking at you.(Under the circumstances, you can't blame her for that slip.) Something stupid and ill-advised, you growl back. You'll need some time to summon, so keep them off you until then.... right, you're speaking to a goddess, and one that saved your ass, to boot. So you add a 'please.'Blanc snorts. "Fine. Not like I got any better ideas. Not like we can run /that/ fast." She hefts her weapon and twirls it in her hands, some of her old bravado rekindling in her chest (such as it is). "Come on, you fuckers, c'mere if you're hard eno-"And that is PRECISELY when your summoning efforts are rewarded by a surge of energy that yanks something straight out of your inventory, knocks you off your feet, and goes off like a fucking nuclear bomb. You grunt and throw an arm across your face, but even /then/, you can see the blinding purple light through your eyelids.Something has broken within you- but it's a good feeling. Irrevocably broken, but not shattered. Surging wildly, but not unstable.(Cont.)
>>45694543Soaring high, and freed from its cage.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_L81LiZtXxkYour eyes clear just in time to see purple fire swirling among the massed tentacles, energy briefly coalescing into jagged bolts of lightning that burn everything they touch to ash. Divine thunder punctuates every lash with explosive cracks that seem to hit unsuspecting tentacles from range, and then it's back to spinning and slicing-"What the hell did you /do/?" Blanc howls over the noise.How the hell should you know!? This is NEPTUNE'S body! You might've broken something!"MIGHT have!?"Nnngh- blame later, purge now!Between the three of you (four, if you count Shovel Knight's drunken stagger as any form of attack), you mop up the remaining tentacles without further incident. Whatever the hell you summoned doesn't give the poor bastards enough time to cast mindfuck spells over ANY of you; fuck, it's all you three can do to keep out of your personal thunderstorm's way, praying that it doesn't suddenly start thirsting for the blood of goddesses or shit like that.Given your previous track record, you really, really wish you were joking.The last tentacle pops under Blanc's boot with one last wail of -MY WAIFU-, and that's the end of that. Cautiously, you turn to face whatever the hell you just summoned, which is just sort of staring at the last dead tentacle.... it's... a lot less fiery and lightning-y and brimstone-y, now that you're looking at it. Even as you watch, the divine energy coalesces further, like it's gaining more control over itself. The outline of your summon quickly becomes something humanoid, raging holy fire smoothing out into long hair- and hell, it's becoming recognizably /feminine/, all long legs and gentle curves.A feeling of dread creeps over you, slides down your spine, and nestles itself right down in the pit of your stomach, weighing it down like the heavy fatass it is.(Cont.)
>>45694559"Urist," Blanc growls hoarsely, eyes as wide as dinner plates. "/Urist/."Mmhmm?"Please tell me you did not just summon a fucking goddess."Still indistinct, still wavering around the edges, the fire coalesces further into something vaguely resembling a slender girl with long, purple hair.... if it'll make her feel better, then no. No, you did not just summon a fucking goddess who's, like, the splitting image of Neptune.Hearing your voice, the girl-shaped- fire-shaped?- the fire girl turns toward you, blinking great big innocently blue glowing eyes, and goddammit she'd better not say what you THINK she's going to say-"Are... are you my big sister?" she asks.Dead, frozen silence."That is totally a coupling skill," Shovel Knight whispers hoarsely before sliding to the ground in an unconscious heap.[TO BE CONTINUED NEXT THREAD]

>>45694620If the highest total roll had been under a certain threshold, you would've been teased with a silent ghostly summon that looked sliiightly like Nepgear, if you squinted.If the highest total roll had been 100 or over, Nepgear would be completely solid, in less of a trance, and basically a permanent party member.The highest roll as-is was VERY high, and hit a strange sweet spot: Nepgear's here, and she's LUCID, but her existence isn't quiiite completely stable.GONNA HAVE TO WORK FOR YOUR LITTLE NEP SISTER

>>45694939She'd put out huge bounties on shareite to try to replicate what we did.

>>45694967I have the feeling she'd really try and make a sweet deal with us to be her little sister. Especially if Nepgear makes it through this and Urist is seen to her as big sister. Then Urist would have a goddess as a big sis and another as a little sis.

So, let me recap the situation.-Neptune is lost in development hell, inside Urist's body, somehow locked in the dwarf's fortress,-Noire is missing,-Vert has her country locked down,-Blanc is with us in development hell, and is trying to hide the fact she's bugged and always in HDD form,-Urist is in Neptune's body, near Blanc,-Shovel Knight is with us, and lost her armour,-Doom is with Neptune (PANIC),-Mojang is with Doom who is with Neptune (!PANIC!),-Arfoire is somewhere out there,-development hell is an extremely hostile land, so any minute spent out there put us all in danger.So, except recovering Neptune and hopefully our body, what's the plan? Stay around to investigate, or return to Lowee?
>>45697919There's probably plenty of adventurers still lost in the Void, so whatever happens, the Fort is staying as an advance base.If we reapply the portal there(whether or not we somehow paint over the images), we'd need to trap the whole thing to blow to prevent Arfoire from getting her hands on it.First and most important business is to get Neptune back to gamindustri. Blanc is more vulnerable here, but she NEEDS a lead on regaining her powers. Or just ignoring it by getting a massive hunk of sharicite and stacking MORE power on top of what she has now, potentially destabilizing the balance if she ever regains her "normal" powers.Next is confirming Rokko and Estelle's status, I suppose. And XCOM. And whatever else she was warning us about. Which probably means that Rokko and Estelle will be the ones joining Blanc out here in the void. Fun.
>>45697982Oh, right, it's the Void, not development hell.If Urist engraves sharicite, can that augment the ore's powers and thus Blanc's? I think of the diamonds here, who are a lot more valuable once they're properly cut.
>>45698059that's been specifically been stated to be the most suicidal thing to try, given that even Blanc herself ran away when first trying out the portal.and doing that wouldn't even augment Blanc, it's linked to the fort right now. Are you referring to her hammer, perhaps?
>>45698074You think if Nepgear touches the sharicite back in the fort, that would fully stabilize her?
>>45698074Dunno, Diablo and its ripoffs use a lot of gems to put in sockets, and gameindustri is about video games, so...
>>45697772As soon as Urist tries to get on N-chan and get horrified by the lewd pictures of CPUs spanking each others.And then Neptune arrives, and sends the pictures to Noire and Blanc per mail and laughs as they're both disgusted.
>>45698161fuck if I know, I've played neither neptunia nor DFI mean, uh, there might be more pressing priorities than stabilizing Nepgear. Unless it grounds her "existence" to the Fort and makes her a part of it as an embark? Is Urist stealing Nep's sister away from her?.....come to think of it, shouldn't we have contacted Histoire while we were in gamindustri?>>45698175seriously, what are you even talking about? Could you explain the process step by step?
>>45698198Simply put, since most sharicite parts are really small, maybe Urist can use her craftmanship to cut them and improve them.
>>45698210First of all>cutting sharicite>the last person who tried this literally explodedthe only reason the portal works right now is goddess fuckery working with DF powers instead of against.>most sharicite parts are really smalland the only one we have on hand is the rather HUGE piece on the Fort. And the LAST one we had before that was fist sized, far larger than something you can just slot into a weapon. If DF even allows for that sort of thing as something that boosts stats.
>>45698239Then you should read the quest again, newfriend, because>the last person who tried this literally explodedNo, Urist is still around, she isn't in pieces, and it's explained as it being a fey mood rather than "goddess fuckery".
>>45698259I think you should take your own advice.
>>45698302>"n-n-n-no u"I think we're done here, mate. You clearly lost.
>>45695048>>45697772I'm going to ask for royalties if you people keep reposting my pictures without crediting me as "The Magnificent and Handsome One that will lead us scrubs to a new Golden Age".
Friendly reminder that we left alone :- a sawy mememaster in a buggy body that can turn critters into forgotten beasts and creates catmaggedons,- an insane psychotic grandma in a rocket-propelled wheelchair that may or may not have PTSD,- a normal girl that explodes when under stress, like for example from getting near an insane PTSD veteran used to fight demons or a buggy semi-goddess.Either the fortress will be in ruins, or they'll have fixed everything by the time we're back.
>>45699588>A small section of the fortress is built entirely of obsidian, and-are those traces of adamantium?
>>45699690>obsidian>there's a game development studio called ObsidianOH NOWE MUST HURRY DOUBLETIME
>>45697551This right here is a very good question that should be kept in mind.>>45697784Oh!Well, shit, then that's Vert's Perfect Communication 1000% Completion Best End right there, isn't it.>>45698239>>45698259Actually, you're both right!As a material, sharicite isn't a big old ticking time bomb, nor is it particularly unstable, otherwise goddesses wouldn't keep them smack-dab in the middle of population centers and their own churches. It's just notoriously resistant to being fucked with; it's crystallized belief given physical form through some poorly-understood divine process, and it provides constant unwavering incomprehensible power to only a few types of chosen beings.The last few adventurers who 1) tried cutting/shaping/etc and/or 2) imbibing/absorbing/consuming sharicite discovered that sharicite reacts to tomfoolery by unleashing, like, all its incomprehensible energy in one go. Urist is the one exception, so she technically IS the "last adventurer who tried this."Granted, the only reason it worked for Urist (ostensibly under her own power) is because for all that she's glitched and unstable and fucked up in the head, Dwarf Fortress is fundamentally broken in some very crucial ways, and doesn't obey certain ironclad rules.Hope that helps.
>>45700688So basically, rather than cutting the sharicite, Urist hacked it.Also, answer >>45697772 please. Not Plutia, but Iris Heart.
>>45700688>Well, shit, then that's Vert's Perfect Communication 1000% Completion Best End right there, isn't it.Probably.
>>45700688>spoilerDon't let her Big Sisters hear anyone say that
>>45700728Basically, yeah!Regarding Iris Heart (I mean, you can't get one without the other, right?), no plans currently!Granted, I said that for Nepgear as well, so take that as you will.>>45700767... come to think of it, Urist (like most other PC-based adventurers) does have more of an affinity for Leanbox, so it wouldn't be as farfetched as it sounds!Of course, it would depend on Vert not losing her spaghetti or CHARISMA BREAKing while trying to sell the idea to Urist.
>>45700857don't let spankfag inhell ruin everything
>>45700857I'm fairly certain that if Vert includes something pertaining to beer and/or a place for Urist to have her fort, Urist might do it
>>45700888How rude, I don't ruin things, I improve them.>>45700857I sometimes make pictures that aren't about spanking, you'll have to tell me if you want something.No drawing however.
What the goodness, look at the time!PANTHEOCIDE O'CLOCK! MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE DAY!
>>45701146Spankfag needs to make a picture of Neptune spanking some sense in a genocidal Nepgear.
>>45697551Or worse, if she could extract male protags (even as the formless tentacled demons they actually are) what's stopping her from extracing other male characters and keeping them as males? The rules of the universe forbid that. She's going to destabilize existance itself.
>>45700979>you'll have to tell me if you want something.Something like >>45694746 but with plenty more shibari on Rom
>>45697551Dunno, but I'm honestly very worried about that.If Arfoire can extract male (somehow) main characters, maybe she can extract characters from the game that aren't the protag.Can you imagine Gwyn, the Marker, or the Orphan of Kos in gameindustri? They would totally destroy the opposition.
DON'T BE LATE BLORP
>>45699588Good thing dorf walls are indestructible.
>>45703436Does anyone know how to operate the drawbridge?Do the girls need to eat?Won't Doom try to eat Mojang if she's starving?
>>45703464Mojang probably does.Mojang can likely also summon edible minecraft critters.
>>45703510And Doomgirl will very appreciate pigs that explode into nicely cut chunks of bacon when you punch them, no doubt.
>>45703534And Doomgirl will probably lock Nepturist somewhere.
