Welcome to Genre Shift! Here, you control a poorly drawn human as he stumbles across time and space, from genre to genre.What you missed last time:>We completed the JAPANESE DATING SIM FINALE>We gained an ally>We Shifted to the JRPG GENRE so much Japan>We went NORTH to the city of PORT LYNDEN>We multiclassed as a MONK>We solved a nearly impossible puzzle>We engaged a BLACK KNIGHT in battle.Previous Thread:>>156681Archives:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=genre+shiftQuick Recap:http://pastebin.com/AjHCD9U4Lonely Discord Channel:https://discord.gg/011dUdhj71acOcGxiIf the link is dead and you want to join, just ask me to refresh it
Ooc: So how do we start?
>>173705Right when Op gets around to posting the first pic :^)
>>173691The Discord link is dead and I wish to join
>>173752https://discord.gg/011dUdhj71aa7u9Y1Fuck, sorry the link died, new one created
The Black Knight drops his sword arm and then drops to his knee. It seems he wasn't expecting the fire magics of Aria. He glances up at you before fading away into the shadows."What a cliché way to go" Aria mutters.1/2
>>173859sorry about the waitYou win!You gain 100 expYou gain 20gpFabio levels up!Fabio may learn a new monk skill------------------Unarmed Affinity: Unarmed Strikes deal 20% bonus damage. You may take this skill up to 20 times.Meditaion: You may choose to meditate to recover Health by using mana.Intensive Training: Choose a stat. +1.5 to that stat. You may take this skill as many times as you like.Environmental Fist: Unarmed Strikes deal double damage if opponent is knocked into an obstacle.
>>173973>meditationAlso check inventory
>>173973Environmental Fist all the way
>>173973Well, seeing as we already have meditate, get environmental fist
>>173973Unarmed affinity sounds good and doesn't have requirements
>>173973Would Ray of Frost cast on the ground count as an obstacle for environmental fist?
>>173989>>174009>>173973Evidently, we do indeed have Meditation already.If an ice slick on the ground will suffice as an "obstacle", then I say we get Environmental Fist. If it does not, we should invest in some Intensive Training to bump our strength.Who ever heard of a monk with no muscles?
>>174023I would not count an ice slick to be an obstacle. An Ice pillar at later mage levels, yes
>>174179I call for Intensive Training then. Unarmed Affinity is good and all, but 20% of fuck all damage is roughly "fuck that".
>>173985>>173989>>173991It looks like Environmental Fist wins.What would you like to do now?Sorry no pic, Had to help someone real fast and I dont wanna take the time away to draw
>>174205But as a monk we are proficient and we get a boost in unarmed
>>174264Loot knight. Get Aria armor.
>>174264Write up a list of some really terrible ice puns.
>>174264Look around to find some way to get a reward for killing the guy.Also ask info on who he was, what he was doing there etc
>>174281And a secondary list of halfway decent ice punsAnd a tertiary list of excellent ice puns
>>174264Read Saxton Hale to boost strength.
>>174276Oh cool, we get a boost from 1 HP of damage to 2 HP of damage!>>174281Second.>>174288Actually... I don't think we defeated him. The way he kneeled down and vanished looked more reverent than anything to me, like "Oh, I didn't realize you were here! I'll just be on my way..."
>>174320>I don't think we defeated himOh yeah, that's right. We should still ask for info though. We might get a quest out of it.
>>174320Against that asshole. We don't know what our base damage is.
>>174281"Ice to see you""Hey man, chill""I'm pretty cool, don't you think?""No more Mr. Ice guy""Don't give me the cold shoulder""There's snow way I´m gonna lose""If you wanted to see me, you could've cold""Let me hail a cab""Icy what you did there""My powers are like a cold dragon, a large blizzard""Freeze!""You'll catch a cold"I don't know any more puns
>>174281>>174294>>174320>>174348You don't need to write up a list of really terrible ice puns.You keep a LIST OF REALLY COOL ICE PUNS in your back pocket at all times.You decide to read them to Aria.Women like puns. Right?fuck, that hail a cab one is actually really good. Pretend it's on the list, but just offscreen
>>174374You can hear some guards approaching. You suddenly realize that you are standing in the middle of piles and piles of dead bodies and the BLACK KNIGHT has disappeared
>>174374This'll show her we're a special snowflake.
>>174374Consume "Saxton Hale's guide to manliness"'s snowledge via osmosis, failing that, just read the book.
>>174386The guards yell "Freeze" and ruin your chance to use a pun properly.
>>174374"Could this get any Cooler? "
>>174398>>174386Oh, but first explain fuck all to that guard, in fact, just run your assistance of.
>>174374>>174386I think it's time we bid this alleyway "Icetalivista" and get the hell outta here.
>>174390Hopefully she won't snowflake out on us
>>174374>>174402Guards: "Freeze!"Fabio: "I'm already ice cold bb"
Man OP, Update already, This is taking an Ice Age!
>>174386Run into the crowd and wait there, they should be able to testify for the existence of the black knight and you'll be safe, since you´re both white as snow.
>>174374Thinking of puns is gonna give me a snowmaneurysm
>>174428You're trying so hard anon, and that's all i can ask ;_;
Oi, lads. I'm freezing the quest here while I eat. Be back soon
>>174444Thanks, it's ice of you to let us know.
>>174444Snow problem OP
Woah guys, all these ice puns, I think we just need to...
>>174444>four foursMay the fours be with you OPThat's a pretty cool get
>>174444Those quads gave me chills
>>174453Why is thatso pleasant to watch?
>>174444Those are some COOL digits OP
>>174444>four foursIce gets
>>174444It's true though, OP. Those Quads kick some Ice. [/Spoiler]
Jesus Christ, we need a cooldown on these puns.
>>174530We're only getting started. Be warned, Winter is coming.
>>174539Summer is gone. Hold the door.
>>174557There's snowone to hold the door.
>>174530Why? There's absolute zero reason to hold back.
Stop these puns, you igloonies!
Alright, What did you guycicles agreed on doing?
>>174624We're gonna take the town by Hail storm.
>>174624We're just gonna chillBut seriously, do>>174425
>>174624We agreed on making it hail puns.... And that's about it.
>>174634Yeah okay, do this guy. But then get Aria some sweet three-piece suit. And Make her reclass as a Gambler. And then make a bet with the devil and win.
>>174425Seconded. Let's get the hell out of this alleyway and locate witnesses to back us up.
>>174662>And then make a bet with the devil and win.It'll be a cold day in hell when that happens.
>>174662This. Except multiclass.
>>174672With our ice skills, we can make a cold day anywhere
>>174634>>174662>>174668After enjoying some hearty laughter from an especially good pun, you motion that you two should get out of here before it ends up looking like YOU two killed all these innocents.Alas, the guards, attracted by your manic laughter, have found you. They don't look too happy.On of them greets you after seeing the 'hello' scrawled in blood behind you."Shut up, Keith"Op Forgot he had a house viewing tonight. I might update once more tonight or I might leave it here until tomorrow. Smell you later!
>>174624OP look what you have started. This entire thread has been completely derailed by puns.WelpI gues it was an ice quest while it lasted.
>>174774Maybe we should've gone into the crowd before we started making ice puns.Tell them that despite the circumstantial evidence, you are innocent and that the murderer has just disappeared. Point out that all the victims have lacerations made by a sword, and that there are no swords around.
>>174792What an amazing point!
>>174792This. We are just an ice wizard/monk hybrid and a fire wizard, we couldn't have done that with our skillset
>>174774>>174792>>175523The city guards aren't paid to listen to suspects' pleas of innocence; they're either gonna kill us, or they're gonna arrest us which, being that a meteor is about to deliver the apocalypse unto the world, would be just as bad as killing us. We have less than 48 hours before the meteor hits; that is not enough time for due process.Gentlemen, we need to get the hell out of here. By force. Right fucking now.
>>175633The meteor doesn't progress unless we are in dating sim
sorry again for the lack of updates during the day. Some bigwig from the UK who owns my company is here overseeing a major project
>>174792This>>176945What do you actually do at your job OP?
>>176969Just in case it wasn't clear earlier, this.
>>176969Obviously OP actually IS Fabio and this quest is his self-insert fanfiction diary.
>>176969Jet Turbine Technician
>>176998Well, gas turbine anyways. I keep them running for a powerplant.
>>177005So what youre saying is you are a monk?
>>177005That sounds about a thousand times cooler than it probably is.
>>177009yeah actually I just sit around all day and meditate>>177011Probably the coolest part of the job is the title. It's alot of tedious stuff
>>177018A passing suggestion should we ever enter a cosmic horror genre, might we encounter a shoggoth butler?Pic related (shoggoth maid)
>>177111Did I make insanes?
Suggestion for the next genre we shift into:Weaponized vehicle tournament
Suggestion for next game: Fishing Simulator
Requesting Spectacle Fighter
>>177992>>177947>>177865I was asking whether we might encounter a specific individual IF we ever entered cosmic horror.
>>178053And I was just suggesting a way to earn our access to Hell so we can rescue best girl. I have to concede, though, that >>177992 would be a faster option. Why earn our entry to Hell when we can just spawn directly into it in the form of a genre?
>>178066Cosmic horror is actually quite safe if done correctly. Most beings in thus genre are either a)ignorant b)crazy or c)too freakishly powerful to give a shit.
>>178083I never said it wasn't. My suggestion and your suggestion have no connections.But thanks for putting words in my mouth!
>>178083>Cosmic Horror wills you out of existence because it thinks it would be funny>It isn't funny>Decides not to will you back into existence anyways.Good quest guys.OP had mandatory overtime today, on my way home now
>>178100I was just making conversation, no need to freak out>>178103My point was that most people who play these games die because they think it's a good idea to bring a gun to a shoggoth fight, your only supposed to let people know, not do anything about it yourself.
>>178129Hey, with Spectacle Fighter, you get to fight back in case the cosmic horror screws you over. Plus you and Aria become extra badass.
When OP's away, the autists will play...
>>178153I wasn't suggesting we go into cosmic horror. I was asking about a theoretical situation in which we did. Altho the question I'm referencing would be significantly more likely in a parady of cosmic horror.
Better yet, Next Game We IdolM@STER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLxMwrZQMj0
>>178216Music Genres work through the draw medium, Right guys? :^) Home and drawing.Also, I'm a sucker for female vocalists, this song is sick
>>178223while you wait, please take this poorly drawn picture of sad!Aria. Op is attempting to branch into more diverse art.
>>178251Nice to see she has spina bifida, we've been needing more representation of differently abled women in media lately.Also the discord chat's down. I want to bully you.
>>178251Hey, that's pretty good
>>178260;_; I said poorly drawn didn't i?Come on in Shitpost-chanhttps://discord.gg/011dUdhj71adRwXte
You kindly inform the guards that all of these innocent corpses died of lacerations and that you and Aria have now way to have caused suck wounds.You tell them about the mystical BLACK KNIGHT who resisted frost damage and succumb to Aria's wizard fire.You tell them that he vanished into the shadows.They tell you that you're going to be locked away for a long, long time. They take your Gi, book, and Aria's hat away and throw you in prison.
>>178364Welp, time to make a shiv out of toilet paper.
>>178364Demand you lawyer loudly and often.
>>178364Tell them you know your rights and as a sovereign citizen you deserve a fair trial.
>>178364Kiss her for comfort and tell her, "hey, could ve worse, eh?" and flash your button at her.
>>178364>>178370Also, now's a good time to get jacked as shit.
>>178364I told you guys. I told you that they're not paid to listen to pleas.You fucks voted to get us into this mess, now it's for you guys to figure out how to get us out. I might vote on something that sounds good, but I'm not gonna help generate options for this.
>>178397Dude. If I don't get my fair trial I will, do something, unspeakable.
>>178380The guards probably took the button, assuming we still had it on arrival in the first place. Even if we did, we need to get the Holy spell from this genre, and if we leave and come back we'll still be in this cell until we somehow release ourselves from it.The only alternative I can think of is to flee to another genre and write this one off as a dead end until we find an escape solution in another genre. Potentially, we could find a way into Hell to bust ghostbro out.
>>178419>press button>shift genres>Point and click genre>Still stuck in prison. RIP
>>178364Punch the wall into submission. or at least until the guards try to do something about it.
>>178451>point and click>all action suggestions must be made in the form of (VERB) (NOUN) (PREPOSITION) (SUBJECT)>very stiff lingual interpretation>trying to get out of a prison cellRIP
>>178487>You can't get ye flask
>>178535>>178502If we shift into PnC and we start in a prison cell, I guarantee the way we're supposed to get out is gonna be some Monkey Island grade shenanigans.
>>178560>You fight like a dairy farmer!
>>178589>Oh, so you got that job as a janitor after all!
>>178380You Aria is looking real upset that they took her hat.You head over and give her a kissYou show her that the guards haven't taken your button.Press it?low quality update sorry
>>178690Dat uncolored button though
>>178690FISHING SIMULATOR GO
>>178690>>178694Ask Aria if she would rather abandon this setting or stay here, figure out how to escape, and retrieve our confiscated equipment.I'd rather we convince her to put out than to put her out.
>>178712This Press that button OP
>>178690GTA style game, here we come.Where massacring a small town's worth of civilians will get you a day in prison and you lose your ammo
>>178690Requesting Spectacle Fighter again
>>178856SECONDANYTHING BUT FISHING SIM
>>178859>>178862TOO LATE BOYS WE FISHING SIM NOW
>>178885Fuck yeah fishing
>>178885You don't want to test me OP. You'll just end up with egg on your face.
>>178712>>178786You aren't quite sure what you expected. At least you aren't in jail anymore
>>178982Use pepe flavoured belly lint as bait!
>>178982Eh. I suppose it affords us a relaxing place to think and plan. Ask Aria what we should do next.This genre actually might be an okay thing to come back to occasionally. We can use it as a place to meditate.
>>178982A GIANT MEGALODON APPEARS!
>>178982damn it, we lost our gi!ah well, lets get fishing
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>179112Rolling for Liopleurodon
>>179008>>179119>>179124You expect the same old prompts that normally appear.>You cannot sell a quest item>You cannot drop a quest item>You cannot eat a quest itemHowever... a different prompt appears this time>Are you sure you want to combine the EXTREMELY RARE PEPE-FLAVORED BELLY-BUTTON LINT with the FISHING HOOK?
>>179166YesTime to catch us a Hylian Loach
>>179171>>179184>>179189You hook the lint on the end of your line and wind back to cast. Your eyes drift over to Aria and you feel like you saw something strange. Whatever probably nothing.You cast your line hoping to catch something big. This is a Quest item after all!.The bait hits the water.What...What have you done?more updates tomorrow, op is having personal issues. Sorry guys
>>179255IT'S THE WHITE WHALE
>>179255Welp, looks like we just caught God, who'd have thunk it?
>>179255a wild tentaquil appeared?
Well, now that we broke the game, let's get A E S T H E T I C.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU8HrO7XuiE
If we ever press the button again, we should go with SERIOUS BUSINESS CHILDREN'S TRADING CARD GAME genre.
>>180315you mean yugioh-esque
>>179255You thought you had caught a fish, but it was actually me!....DIO?
NEW RULESET NOW THAT THE GAME IS BROKENThis is a test>All suggestions must be accompanied with a role of a 1d20>On a roll of 1 the Genre will shift you into a worse predicament.>On a roll of 20 the Genre will shift you into a better predicament.>If 1 or 20 are not rolled, the game will continue as planned.>Suggestions without dice rolls are ignored unless they are seconding another player.If every winds up hating this op will make an asspull to save it
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>182151So would this be for all suggestions, or only ones that involve changing genres?
>>182208All suggestions. The universe is collapising on itself
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>182264Thanks, Jizzy.Rolling for bugfix patch.
>>182280>first suggestion involving dice rolls a 20There's no way that's legit
>>182280>20>My fucking face whenOk everyone, ignore the post explaining all the new rules and the cool plotlines I planned on introducing.
>>179255>>182264>>182280Stupid bug go squish now.
>>179141>>182306Catch a magical liopleurodon
>>182280>>182298>>182306>>182308Whoa, that was a weird, totally not related to anything important, daydream. Although your time here with Aria has been great, you think its time to move on.Where to next?
FPS RPG Platformer
>>182371>That's quite a few genres there, friend :^)
>>182389No, it's one genre and 2 game mechanics.
>>182345Stay here for a minute, catch a fish to bring back to the JRPG cell to confuse the shit outta the guards
>>182400I count them all as Genres
dice+1d6>>182345Shift back to JRPG to get your equipment
>>182456How many can we have at one time?
>>182457Put the roll in the [Options] menuAnd we'd still be behind bars, which is fine, but just a reminder.>>182462Op doesn't want to get too caught up in the mechanics of things. I forget minor details often enough as it is. As such, the genres are very loose, but they also tend to drift back to the central theme of the one we are currently in.
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>182345Go to an ACTION JRPG. Ya know, things like star ocean, tales of ... series, etc.
>>182551Do you think that's really such a good idea?
>>182468Go to a grand strategy game and get yourself an army to conquer the JRPG world
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>182345You guys know what it's time for? IDOLM@STER
Also, the Discord's broken again. But I won't be joining you, cause I'm busy on a film shoot today. In the meantime: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPlQpGeTbIE
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>182660No it isn't
>>182345Back to JRPG
>>182457>>182402>>182551>>182836Looks like Back to Jrpg it is. I'll update soonAlso, it's really slow this time of day i feel. The quest speed should hopefully. don't abandon me ;_; pick back up after this week is through and I can start updating at work during the day again
>>182871I would never abandon you senpai.
>>182937We would all enjoy if you did.
Rolled 1 + 19 (1d1 + 19)Been here since the first thread, I'm here for life OP.Rolling for thread success :^)
>>182871Well, might as well try and get your loot back...1/2
>>183056You look around your cell. You see another Uncomfortable bed, a toilet, and a window with bars preventing escape
>>183075ShinesSparklies Grab itNow please
>>183075So hold on, we still have our lint right? They didn't take that? If we do, try offering it for bail or bribing the guards keeping us trapped.
>>183087Actually I didn't notice this, inspect the shiny first.
>>183103>inb4 undertale save point
>>183116KNOWING THAT ONE DAY THE MOUSE MIGHT ESCAPE FROM HIS EARTHLY PRISON...IT FILLS YOU WITH A surprising amount of depression
>>183075dice+1d20Why don't we have Aria melt the bars with her fire magic?
>>183138Because it reminds you of how ghostbro is still stuck in his ungodly prison?
>>183138What if we shifted to undertale universe and started doing genocide route?
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>183154Let's try this again
>>183103>>183087You see something shimmer in the fading light.It's an ODDLY SHAPED KEY1/2
>>183181You add the key to your inventory for now.>>183092That's strange, you no longer have the EXTREMELY RARE PEPE-FLAVORED BELLY-BUTTON LINT. Instead you now have the EXTREMELY RARE HOLE IN SPACE-TIME
>>183195Use the EXTREMELY RARE HOLE IN SPACE-TIME on the button.
>>183195Put your dick in the hole
>>183195Use the EXTREMELY RARE HOLE IN SPACE-TIME on the cell door.
>>183195Use the key on the EXTREMELY RARE HOLE IN SPACE-TIME
>>183258Use the key on the button.
>>183217>>183220>>183230>>183258You blink for a second and the EXTREMELY RARE HOLE IN SPACE-TIME is gone. That was weird...

>>183303But imagine the interdimensional blowjobs we could get
>>183315No. Let's abuse the fuck out of the glitches by no-clipping into Hell and saving ghostbro
>>183327Imagine the hungry carnivores.
>>183333Well I mean if you´re into that sort of stuff
>>183333>>183344Trying to eat you, I mean we could wind up in a sarlac.
>>183362I see you are from the nicest board :^)Also, could we please just fix this shit and do the genre without missingno level glitches? Last time we had a glitch in the quest, OP died.
>>183443The last time OP died, the quest got losted.
>>183443>Implying that I'm not already deaddead inside ;_;
>>183499Stop whining and draw, art slave!
>>183513>>183518>responding to your own posts
>>183520'Twas waiting for this post :^)OK so since nothing been seconded to my knowledge, we are heating up the bars with Aria's magic. The window bars or the door bars?
>>183528Wow, what a faggot.
>>183536>>183546This coming from OP.
>>183612>He samefags again

>>183830Anon, you need to look at the letters.
>>183828>>183830Jesus christ just fuck already. Also OP do you see what happens if you give us too much free time?
>>183841I don´t get it
>>183841Autism.. hes even trying to defend himself n play it off. the only reason hes still goin on about it is cuz he was caught in the act. he fell for his own bait.
>>183860> just fuck alreadySorry, but unless they're in Reykjavík that isn't happening.
>>183861Thank you, Anom.
>>183885Fuck it, everyone will assume we are samefag, I'm leaving this thread.

>>183922Is it not fun to ruin your brothers fun?
While he has been here for much longer than I, after discovering that living under the same WiFi, we had the same ID on separate phones, I started following him.
>>183976The best part is that you can't prove that we are different people, so you have little choice but to assume that we are the same, goodbye.
Op ran into serious personal issues again. Major fights, turmoil, and tribulations were had. Please accept this unfinished picture of Aria as an apology. Quest is obviously done for the night sorry I didn't close it out sooner
>>184231All good, best of luck to ya.
>>184231Well that's what you get for cheating on your "gf". Trannies are people too.
>>184231It's cool, OP. I still love ya.
>>184231Personal turmoil, just press the button mang. Go to the universe where you're waifu a shitoh wait that's this one
>>184231Shit, for a second I thought you wrote "Trials and tribulations" and were foreshadowing our Ace Attorney trial that is definitely going to happen when we save ghostbroSorry about the stuff you were actually talking about
>>184231Love you OP! Dont be sad
>>184231Blargle! Graf! Hah. Good afternoon gentlemen.
>>184231Good luck OP
Anyone watching this still, waiting for an update:OP is not dead, just exhausted. Updates will continue in a new thread sometime tomorrow.
>>188144Enjoy your rest.
>>189284OP usually usually links to a new thread after autosage and when he draws a new title picture
