>>2007Well, if this thing actually takes off from this gigantic pile of shit and /I/why would you do this you gigantic retard/I/ it would help give a name to the person that runs this quest. Not to mention that having something to remember the past age is a good thing.
>>1982>>1978Flesh and bones surrounded your fragile soul. Warmth radiated from your true soul, yet. your new body was cold; your heart didn't beat. No... you didn't belong to the plane of man. you were something else...."Rise from your naught, Vessel of ashes. Rise and aid us in our blight" these words resonated in your soul. you were surrounded by an endless sea of long forgotten ash untampered in ages. A corpse slept next to you. You felt some sort of familiarity with it. It held weapons and armour just for you....>Choose a class
>>2007>Cause a Trip is basically an ID.but it will only last for this thread. Every post you make in a different tread will have a different ID. I think it's a good way to prevent someone from spamming rerolls.

I really should grab a copy of Dark Souls 3 soon, from what I hear it is quite good.
>>2061>>2051>>2065An ash riddled club was by its side. You grabbed said weapon, it was crude and battered but it would serve you well. You almost failed to notice a crackled plank shield strapped on its back, by the looks of it, it was liable to break at any moment."Transverse The Ashen end, Vessel of Ash, unbind me from my shackles and i shall serve you and you only." said words resonated in your head.___________Ashen End_________Seas of endless ashes surrounded you, there was no sun to govern these forsaken lands; only the occasional gust and the distant cries of someone unbeknownst to you. >Head north>Head south>Head east>Head west

You headed east, you felt death looming around you.Limbs, heads and other body parts would occasionally jot from the ashen hills.Fear, pain, agony were written on their hollow faces.A three legged dog was limping its way to an untouched corpse. it lost its inside long ago, this wasn't hunger or instinct. no...it was the urge for destruction. the corpse looked very fresh, barely in the early stages of rotting. It was however stripped of almost everything visible. why would anyone venture in these lands of sorrow? >Ignore the mindless beast>Attack the dog [roll a d20 for it]>Something else?

The greatarrow was made out of bones which oozed a sliver like substance. You head a rambling of an old man, it echoed in the sunless skies."Turn back!

You were missing your petty weapons and shields. You found yourself next to the corpse whom you took the club from.This time, however, a scrawny little man was waiting for your arrival, he had various scales sprouting over his skin, he hid his uneven face behind a strange wooden mask. A small sack was snitched to his back and a crude dagger replaced his left hand."Greeting great vessel, I am kesp the bastard. Your first death must be devastating, no wonder. Say, how will you fare against this harsh world with naught but your bare hands? let this troubles you no more!

'Warmth' is the only aspect interpreted in said dream.Alas, a ruined structure lied in the horizon. However, said ruins were surrounded by various hollows, chained together via their feeble neck forming a pitiful excuse for an obstacle.All the chains originated from the collar of a giant dog-like creature with arrows, swords and axes sticking out of its skin. It was drifting in a peaceful sleep.>Attack the chained hollows >Attack the Watchdog [18-20 will guarantee a hit] >sneak by to the ruins [16-20 will guarantee a swift entrance]>Sneak by, then attack the watchdog [17-20 will guarantee a critical hit]>head ____>Something else?

It roared and opened its gaping maw to swallow you whole.Another well timed dodge saved your life, the watchdog instead had a handful of ash in its mouth.The whistle put it to sleep once more, it sounded a bit distorted this time.>Attack the Watchdog [18-20 will guarantee a hit] >sneak by to the ruins [16-20 will guarantee a swift entrance]>Sneak by, then attack the watchdog [17-20 will guarantee a critical hit]>head ____>Something else?

>>7509>Head west sure, a map would be great
>>7521You headed west. A crumbling old tower stood defiant against time. dozens of corpses littered what seemed to be a courtyard in another time. All were stripped to the bone.Oddly enough, A lone hollow guarded the entrance to the tower, he had nothing on him but a broken spear and tattered armour. He was still petting his dead dog.>Aim at the hollow [15-20 will guarantee a hit]>Charge with your Hiltless dagger [16-20 will guarantee a hit]>Charge with your bare hands [17-20 will guarantee a hit]>Offer your Thoughtful dream to the lone hollow>Something else

>>7676You took his spear, the hollow didn't protest at all. he allowed you to ascend the tower.You made your way to the very top of the tower, A vengeful gust obscured the majority of the field. However, you could spot the sleeping Watchdog and a small village near the location of the man with the greatbow.A perfectly intact Ballista occupied the majority of the tower's tilted roof. Its front wheels were rails in a strange mechanism unbeknownst to you, it did allow this war machine to rotate around the axis of the tower. Only one bolt was available.>Aim the Ballista at the Watchdog, fire>Aim the Ballista at the greatbowman's village, fire>Leave it for now>Something else?
>>7764>Leave it for nowi want to go check what's north first but this is extremely tempting
>>7785You exited the lone tower, eager to explore what lied in the north.Nothing.A void of churning abyss awaited you by the north. As if the world halted in this very spot.A young woman was admiring the scenery, her hair was oozing black substance, She obscured her face under a faint yellow peculiar mask which only exposed her pale forehead. She wore a grey robe with black circular patterns, her feet were once shackled together as were her hands.A small ornate dagger rested on her breasts while an unknown medium for the dark was coiled around her waist."Beautiful, isn't it?" She sighed "Are you too a dark pligrim?">Yes>No
>>7868>I'm just a vessel.
>>7899She retorted "A vessel? how feeble are you to outright say so in front of me. You are a vessel of a false hope. Stop clinging to the past; the lords and their fire have faded. Embrace the age of man."She paused shifting her attention to the depths below "No matter, you will plea to the abyss sooner or later. I am Shard Livenne, a true follower of the abyss. I do intend to stay here until i finish my pilgrimage. Should you kneel to the abyss, you will find a powerful ally by your side.">Leave her>Say something to her>Attack her>Something else?

>>8014You left the Pilgrim behind and head back to the tower. You spent a some time in adjusting the Ballista before firing. The Watchdog withered in pain as it was pinned to the ground via the large bolt. Its death was slow and painful to watch.+1000 Soulyou headed straight for the ruins, a desperate whistle echoed in the air as you were approaching.A lone figure stood in the middle of the ruins. A tower of a man, Like his Watchdog, he was chained to the ruins itself. its arm were cut off and his legs were badly injured, A bloodied whistle was sewn to his lips. his voice was getting sore from endless whistles.>Fight Yhar, the handler>leave.>>7986i knew it.

>>8088You entered the ruins with your spear, your dagger and your bow. You didn't know how to pull out the whistle out of his sewn mouth but you ought to give it a try. The handler didn't pay much attention to you, he was still whistling.Although, he spent most of his days here on his knees. you couldn't even reach the end of his belly; five or six of him might match the tower from earlier.When he grew desperate, the handler stood up."MMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!MMMMMMMMRAAGH!!!!"The death of his beloved Watchdog triggered a tempest of pure rage. he started to pull out the chains binding him only to flail it at your direction.

>>8211You rolled away from his reckless flails and stomps. You found yourself beneath his knelled legs, you poked his manhood in a ruthless jab.The handler wailed, rolling on the ground in pain. in these sudden movements, some of the weaker chains were snapped. the sturdier one took chunks of flesh from his back and legs.His bloating eyes were tearing up. he took a deep breath for a final whistle before dropping dead on the ground shaking the very foundation of the place.+0 souls?You heard a distant howling, the ground was shaking.>run to the ruins>Stand and fight>Escape the ruins>Something else?
>>8334>Escape the ruins

>>8390>>8461You escaped the ruins through a crack in the wall. You saw it coming towards the ruins.The watchdog of Yhar. It left an oozing trail on its wake, it didn't mind the bolt at all. Instead, it went to its master to guard his corpse and the ruins itself.With nowhere to go, you headed back to the tower. The lone hollow was slain by a knight of sorts in a sickly dark green armour, it was covered by loose and filthy wraps. The knight in question had glaring hole in his helm exposing his right undead eye. He rested by his greenish greatsword. "Quite a performance, oh mighty vessel." his word were full of poison "You killed the only man capable of hindering the true potential of this beast. My task will be thrice as hard now...."He didn't like your silent and hollow gaze at him "I care not of your goals or you for that matter. That way i see it, both of us want to free someone inside of these ruins. This trotting beast is in our way. There is but only one sane answer to this ordeal, mighty vessel.

>>8795"A warning, if a single arrow finds itself anywhere near my armour, you will wish you were fighting the beast. Let's go."Heldenmutt gave you x20 wooden arrow for your disposal. He didn't utter another word after his warning.Heldenmutt stood defiant against the raging beast, he took off his helm and placed it on the ground exposing his disfigured undead face to the world."Come on you piece of filth! show me your mettle." with unseen bravery, the plague knight took on the watchdog by himself. His moves were swift and precise.You waited for the right moment to loose your arrow, it....>roll a 20

Like his master, the beast rolled on the ground, its large paw desperately trying to removed the prickly arrow but in vain.Heldenmutt regained his balance and drove his greatsword in the beast's pulsating throat a gash of black blood sprayed the knight of Coris . A random swipe sent the plague knight feet away but he regained his balance with a smile on his face._______YOU DEFEATED_______ +5000 soulThe plague knight panted heavily as the watchdog threw some hapless kick before expiring for the second time. Despite your little effort, you gained as much souls as he did.A distinct black soul was escaping its mouth.

>>9021Despite your efforts to praise him, Heldenmutt chose silence. He didn't object on you claiming the soul for yourself. He simply looked at you with disgust. you tucked it in your bottomless box.>Twisted soul of a WatchdogA malicious soul of a great being, consume it to gain souls. Or perhaps....Long ago,A simple man and his dog were among many to guard a beautiful sanctuary. When the war drums echoed in this forgotten kingdom, The sanctuary was turned into a prison, a dungeon for the good and the wicked alike.Yhar was granted a terrible curse by one of the prisoners which led to the current state of the sanctuary. He and his dog were bound to this place till the end of times.Caution is a must; for there is still a handful of prisoners in the sanctuary. "I think we owe ourselves a little rest; those inside are not departing anytime soon." He chuckled to himself as he put on his helm.>Leave him, head for the ruins>Accept a moment of respite>Something else?
>>9147The two of you found a nice spot to ease yourselves."A pyromancer taught me this trick..." Heldenmutt set a wooden ruble on the fire.The fire itself was cold, lifeless. It provided the illusion of warmth and comfort."How does it feel, mighty vessel? to harbor truth warmth...Them mad critters in Loaane's swamps would tears you to bits if they knew who you were?

The whole lot of us... we are slaves to dead lords and dead flames."The plague knight had his share for words. He drifted into a well deserved sleep.You could sleep as well, but it lacked any taste. ..You 'woke' up the next day before Heldenmutt. The Watchdog and the handler's corpse were already rotting. you approached the handler's mouth and cut off his large whistle>Yhar's whistlea peculiar whistle fashioned from Deadwood. Calms down dogs and other related Kin. It was sewn to the handlers for years and years . A foul breath is to expected,The two of you entered the main structure, rows of rusty cells and cages greeted you both. There was none alive in the vicinity.The plague knight searched every cell but the result remained the same "Curses! Where is he?!" You heard something resonating in your soul "Closer, vessel of Ash, closer...." you found yourself at a lonely cell with a wrapped corpse, its left hand was extended in the air. you somehow wanted to land a gentle kiss on the rotten hand.>Kiss the hand>Ignore it for now, search with the plague knight for his target>Leave>Something else?

A distinctive silver ring shined on her other hand. Her skin was milky and healthier than anyone you might think of, her smooth eyes were basking in your presence.Her lips, her body language, her eyes.... all spoke of affection towards you."I am yours, vessel of ash.

The king of these lands locked unspeakable horrors here. For our sake, don't open the door."You nodded in agreement, before descending further in the sanctuary.

>>12760>>12761You chose not to interfere, The woman was the first to notice your presence but she stayed focused on her foe.The pyromancer was reckless yet brutal, the sorcerer was cunning and precise. She became cocky after slashing him in the chest with a quick flashsword.After a headbutt full of rage, the pyromancer cleaved her petit head over and over again. In a few moments, there was nothing left of her. The cut of her ears and added them to his collection. A few stands of hair were locked around his wrist.The pyromancer panted heavily as he summoned an orb of warmth. Said orb didn't provide any warmth but it was slowly closing his wounds.He huddled to the small chest. His voice was raspy and old "Carrions, all of you....would you like to share the same fate with this wench?">Yes [Attack him]>No
>>12808"Good, A bit strange to find a sane one in the end of the world. what is your purpose, wanderer?" The man was a bit relaxed than before.>Tell him who are you>Remain silent>Something else?
>>12853Tell him who we are. Maybe we can make friends with him.
>>12853yeah, let's tell him who we are
>>12862>>12864He seemed surprised "A Vessel of Ash? You look like a vessel of piss and shite to me. Loaane would churn you to naught, the holy dreams would wisp your soul, fuse it in their unending dream. No. Abandon your fool's quest. You will live longer."The pyromancer stood up, he stripped everything useful on the deceased sorcerer " I am Neegel of the black Marshes. When comforted by any of my kin, Just utter my name. They will understand. I do expect a favour the next time we cross paths. A safe travels to you, 'mighty vessel'. "The pyromancer was heading for the village up north. >Attack him from behind>Head to____>Head N/S/E/W of your position>Something else?
>>12941>keep heading West what a charming gentleman he was...
>>12946you kept heading west, You found a large fleshy snake coiling itself around some sort of a well. Corpses littered the scene, all of them seem to retain their souls for some reason.The snake had no eyes, only a gaping maw and countless oozing wounds on its sides, the ground turned red from said wounds.>Try to snatch anything useful, run afterwards [15-20]>Fight Masterless Ieyo, >Head N/S/E/W of your position>Something else?
>>13041We can fight the snake later. Go North.
>>13075You ignored the coiling menace and headed up north.On the way, you found a corpse of a traveler of sorts. It was mostly stripped but a binocular was left behind, you took it.You found dozens of corpses kneeling towards grim shrine at the end of a cliff. Some were still breathing, they were crying to their deaths. A handful of hollows wandered around the corpses probably guarding them. Every last one of them was wielding a dark scythe dripping black substance on the blighted ground.The remnants of a gate caught your attention, A blue tinted hollow had pile of black robes next to him, he extended his arms with a folded robe resting on his hands.>Approach the hollow at the gate>Attack the hollow at the gate [5-20]>Attack the wandering hollows [16-20]>Attack the praying hollows [3-20]>Loot the corpses of the praying hollows [2-20]>Run to the shrine [18-20]>leave>Something else?
Rolled 14, 7 = 21 (2d20)>>13250Loot the hollows
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>13277My bad. Rolled incorrectly.Here's another roll
>>13291A gleam caught your attention, you picked up a Twisted dagger >Twisted daggerA sacrificial dagger fashioned for pilgrims should they fail their pilgrimage. Few blacksmiths dare to touch this dark dagger; a miasma of black death awaits those who would alter it.Your petty thievery has enraged the scythe wielding hollows, they screeched in anger, the ten of them were heading at your way.>Run away [10-20]>Stand and fight [18-20]>Run to the shrine [17-20]>Something else?
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>13384>Run to the shrine
>>13392As you were running to the shrine, you were struck by an orb of darkness in the back by the hollow at the gate, with no armour, it ate through the flesh of your back.Helpless, you withered in the ground, more hollow approached you, ready to end you for your transgression."Stop." a soft voice ordered the hollows, a small man descended from the shrine towards the crowd you gather, he wore a silky black robe exposing a small portion of his soft, scarless midriff. he wore a black coronet with a black gem in the middle. a thin veil did a fine job in obscuring his face, his pale lips weren't covered."Why do you disturb us, petty thief? we cause no harm to those around us." the man shriveled when he sensed the true warmth inside your body."A vessel of Ash...how quaint. Bringer of sorrow, will you pledge yourself to serve the dark lord? Will you abandon the pointless dream of a new age of fire?">Yes>No
Cool story. Following along.Hope player rolls for no
>>13588>No>>13608just vote for No then dude, it's a collective game
>>13608>>13627The man sighed. "Disappointing." was the last thing you heard before the scythes struck._____YOU DIED_____You were reborn in the sanctuary's bonfire. You lost everything on you but your cherished box the soul of the watchdog inside it. It might be for the best to store your valuables in the botomless box. The firekeeper was still sleeping.>Wake her up>Leave
>>13692>box and the soul
>>13692For future reference, what exactly can and cannot be put in the box?
>>13692Leave and go South this time.
>>13719You headed to the south. You were surprised to find a body of water there. it would reach your waist at the deepest reach.The land below your feet....it didn't feel right; it was slimy in nature. You could almost feel it...pulsating.Out of the shallow water, a couple of gelatinous bodies rose from their slumber, they had the exact nature of the floor of this peculiar sea. They resembled some sort of a budding swaying itself left and right at a snail's pace.Their unsettling smile on their 'face' troubled you the most, they were approaching you, very, very slowly.>Attack them with your bare hands [18-20]>leave them, head N/S/E/W>>13712anything really.
>>13807You headed to the east, you stumbled upon a band of dead warriors, all of them were struck by a greatarrow.As expected, they were stripped clean but there was this one warrior with a mighty greataxe fit his bulky structure.it was too heavy for you to handle [20 STR], you tucked it in your bottomless box for the future. in the furtherest regions of the Ashen end, you found a walled off area. The wall was made from men and limestone, like the tower, it stood defiant against time.A young man was kneeling on the ground, his attire was bloodied. Looks like he was praying to his gods. He held a chime in his left hand and a mace in his other. Despite his young age, most of his hair turned white. a corpse lied next to him, a woman wearing the exact attire of his.>Approach the cleric>Attack him>Ignore him, head N/S/E/W>Something else?
>>13986You approached the man, he was still recovering from his loss "Damn it all, why...why? W-who are you? are you one of the savages of the black marsh? are you going to stab us in the back as well?">Yes >No
>>14043>>14044>>14048"My apologies, We-I have been under a lot of stress lately. We were sent to purge the Pilgrim's peak. A place where the followers of the dark gathers. Our holy mission failed when the wildmen of the Marshes attacked us despite paying a hefty toll for a safe passage. Most of us are either dead or in hiding. Only myself and Inai have made it."Remorse was written on his face "Yet i will stand and fight till my end. I have no doubt of the dangers of the Ashen end. Have you stumbled upon this dark place? it would make my task, much, much easier.">Give him directions>Don't
>>14135>Give him directionsbut warn him about those slime things
>>14214"Thank you kindly, please do take Inai's mace as a token of gratitude, this blessed mace will serve you. May the gods watch over you, friend."and that concludes our thread (for the second time) thank you for your participation.
>>14318Having lots of fun. Thanks OP.
yeah, we will need a new thread, this one served us well.
>>14501thanks again for this anon.
