>>19787you headed south, a lone figure was dipping his toes in the peculiar water on on your way.It was Neegel, the pyromancer. He didn't have his small chest this time."You again?" he retorted "Well, perhaps it is a good thing you came by; my earlier statement won't apply to my kin anymore...i am now an outcast like you thanks to that damn chest."He paused for a second "Vessel of vex, if you happen to pass by an old crone in the giant's valley...kill her. bring me her rotten head and i will share my fire with you."He wasn't annoyed by your silence "Curses, There is on way out of this blasted end; A route is guarded by a loathsome snake , the other..." he pointed at the body of water "is infested with Loa's buddings.

>>20000>>20012______IOA'S SEA_______You took a couple of brave steps into this strange sea.In a few moments, six buddings have sprouted up ahead, they were moving very very slowly towards you. Your movement in water was greatly slowed giving them a slight advantage.>Outrun them [10-20]>Hit them with your mace [15-20]>Throw your firebombs at them [5-20]>Something else?

A woman in a white wedding dress was only the interpreted aspect of said dream.After defeating the buddings, you noticed a pulsating hole on your right. It was tight but at the end lied a large chest, its lock was already broken.>Dive towards the chest [18-20]>Ignore it, move E/W/N/S>Something else?

>>20308>>20354As you moved to the south, you stumbled upon at least twenty or so of these budding slowly munching a giant amalgamation of corpses, you could see a trail of its rotten flesh littered around."Help....us...." On the very top of the amalgamation, a distinct body of a woman called for your help.>ignore the amalgamation, Head W/E/S/N>Fight the buddings>Something else?
>>20466>Fight the buddings
I havent read everything in this quest yet but I must comment on how the tower seems to be a salute of sorts to this flameless world.
>>20474>>20475>>20482you chose to intervene. The buddings were too busy to notice you. You had the element of surprise. their sheer number might be problematic.>Slice them with Swan dagger [19-20]>Crush them with the divine mace [17-20]>Skillfully throw your last two firebombs at them [15-20]>Something else?

West>>19892>There is on way out of this blasted end; A route is guarded by a loathsome snake
>>20527>>20532With all of your brute strength, you went hard on the buddings who paid little attention to your ruthless strikes.fifteen minutes later, you took a heavy pant after all of these swipes. The Amalgamation extended a coil of arms to reach you before blessing you with a miracle of sort, the exhaustion was cleansed away in a heart beat."Thank you...kind traveler." their voices were soft and somewhat echoy "We are the failures of Vienshlan. When our master grew tired our existence, he banished us to this strange world. We exist without hope. Knowledge is our only gift to you, kind traveler. But we need some rest to recover our fallen sisters...these lands doesn't welcome the likes of us as it happened before..."The failures started to weep.>Invite them to the sanctuary>Say nothing>>20631shallow waters, can reach our waists at its deepest point with few exceptions.>>20661thank you anon

>>20705>>20720>>20728"Such kindness...." The failure cried even more. The woman on top extended itself to reach you for a simple kiss on the forehead "...thank you."They slithered away in a painful fashion as it was apparent by the trail of blood left behind by them.In the horizon, you could see a giant black rock standing strong in the middle of the sea. the highest point was facing you. the best way to approach the rock was by reaching its lower end.There were also a strange bunch of buddings in the shallowest area of the sea near the rock. they were imitating a ceremony of sorts using their ingested corpses. You felt like it was almost a wedding.>Approach the buddings>head to the rock from the west side>Head to the rick from the east side>Ignore the rock, head W/E/N/S>Return to Ashen end>something else
>>20822>Head to the rick from the east side
>>20822>Head to the rock from the east side
>>20838>>20854>>20868You chose to avoid conflict. There were few buddings lurking from the east side but you could easily outpace them.On the very top of the black rock lied an emberless ash. Should you die, you will be reborn here.A corpse was sitting near the ash, it contained a white soap stone and a shriving eye orb.>Shriving eye OrbA gift from a serpent of old to men, it trembles upon sensing any phantom who invades your world for your life. >head to the 'wedding'>Head E/W/N/S>Something else?
>>20955How many souls do we have? Can we level up? If so, go back to the sanctuary.
>>209641000 not much
>>20955Sure let's head south
>>20955First thing we should do is put any unequipped item into our bottomless box.Secondly, we should equip that ring we got.Finally, we should head over to our last corpse and pick up what we dropped.
>>21019>>21004>>20975>>20969as you moved towards the south, you saw a lone boat in the distance. A second late , you felt the ground shaking, a colossus of a budding rose from the sea, it shared the same height and width of that of a mountain. a booming voice radiated from it. >Fight Ioa, Father of many.>Try to run for the boat [19-20]>Offer a wishful thought to Ioa>Something else?
>>21105Oh oh.Um, offer a wishful thoughI wish to not be eaten, like, really hard.

>>21105>Offer a wishful dream to Ioasleep tight giant bitch
>>21125>>21129>>21133>>21134you extended a wishful dream to the giant. It extended a tiny part of itself to swallow it, it almost dragged you with it.Somehow, you could hear a weep. It was deep and irregular in nature. Ioa has regurgitated a slimy green dress from its inside. More buddings showed up, they formed a semi circle around you.>Wear the regurgitated dress>make a run for it to the boat/ash [19-20]>Attack Ioa and his buddings>Something else?

Kings, queens were chosen according to how fertile they were. The young prince had defied the sacred laws of his land and married a foreigner, she bore many children for him and his kingdom. These children didn't belong to the releam of man...no, something more vile....Ioa extended some sort of a slimy arm towards you, he offered you a slimy ring.>Accept >Decline
>>21315>Accept I doubt we're all that fertile, but alright.
Maybe accepting isn't such a great idea, who knows what marrying this thing will do?
>>21315>>Accept>>21330At best we get a husband and at worst, we become a dead baby factory.

>>21326>>21330>>21339>>21347you wore the ring of betrothal.>Ring of betrothalA simple ring, Offer no nothing but fond memories and sentimental value.The ground shook afterwards, Ioa and all the buddings started to melt in a slow fashion. A heard a sigh of relief escaped Ioa. In a couple of minutes, naught was left of them.+50000 Soul________YOU DEFEATED________You took a bulbous green soul and tucked it in your box.Soul of Ioa, Father of manySoul of desperate prince, consume it to gain lots of souls. Or perhaps....The prince of Coris was the last hope of his kingdom. Men were no longer able to bear a children and most of the women were too weak to bear a child if they were fertile in the first place. His kingdom would have died one way or another....>Head back to Sanctuary>Approach the lone boat>Explore the rest of Ioa's sea.>Something else?

>>21449>>21456>>21464>>21468>>21472>>21475it was a long journey to the Ashen end . It was a good thing that you no longer need food or water. Otherwise, you would have perished long ago.The failures were peacefully sleeping in the ruin's courtyard. You chose not to disturb them at the moment.The savage of the black marches was sitting in a dim corner mediating around a handful of candles. while the Firekeeper was dipping her feet in a bowl of water, playfully splashing some on the floor.>Approach the fire keeper>Approach Neegel>Something else?

Hmm Not sure.
>>21543>>21552>>21553>>21556>>21558>>21561>>21569>>21572You approach the firekeeper, She blushed upon your arrival focusing on your face instead of the once beautiful dress "Vessel of Ash, please forgive me. Whenever you enter this sanctuary, you shall find me able and ready to serve you and you only."She blushed even harder when you gently grabbed her hand to kiss her. You drew strength from the firekeeper .>Level upwe have 51000 souls, we can level up twice only.should I decrease the multiplier?
>>21663two in strength, i guess?exponential is always brutal, so... i don't know, i haven't done serious math in forever
>>21663>level up twice>dex>strreally depends on how you want to implement the stats into your DC
>>21663Probably. try somewhere along 15-20%.Spend both on dex. Let's go with a quality build.
What build are we going for?
>>21704i don't want to give that much of a priority, really. as i said before, better stats will make us equip better weapons like the greataxe but most importantly they will make rolling less punishable. >>21719i thought so. >>21725well we are a deprived, so far, we relied on brute strength in most of our combats.The vessel of Ash is forged by you not me

Let us become the gross incandecense this world needs!
>>21663 And yes, lower the multiplier a bit, we should have been able to level up three times i think from 50K. We are still fairly low level right?
>>21820>>21833>>21834>>21835"Very well, Speak to me when your heart desire. I am always by your side, Vessel of Ash."You left the firekeeper and headed to Neegel who was still meditating.>Interrupt him>Wait for him to finish.>>21841Don't worry, everything here is OCSome of main concepts of the souls series are here though. If you are feeling uncomfortable then i will suggest leaving this quest; A measly quest is nothing compared to a really good game.

I better pull out my best ears for this rare occasion!" he chuckled to himself.When he saw your cold reaction, he frowned "No sense of humor? shame. All in all, you did well. These buddings have devoured countless men and women. Perhaps the true warmth inside you reminded him of his better days? It doesn't matter now, does it? " Again, he laughed."This sanctuary, i am grateful for you invitation." now, it is rare to witness a true fire. Now, have you brought souls to this old pyromancer?">Yes [Give him souls]>No

No. I am giving you memories shared from my earliest ancestors molded by countless pyromancers throughout ages. Use it well..." He spoke with a serious tone as he conjured a small fire and handed it to you."Smother it." you do so in a tick "This fire is now your. When you are ready, I will teach you more basic pyromancies.

>>23747>>23748>>23762>>23766Something didn't feel right about the whip, you threw it in the bottomless box for now.A couple of hollow pilgrims were coming from the shrine, they wept in sorrow upon finding the corpse of their protector.They didn't attack you though. No, they were afraid of you. Instead, they chose to bury the shard near the bridge before moving on.A glare of lightning caught your attention up north. After a bit of walking, you found Shard Livenne fighting the nameless cleric from earlier with two Scythe wielding hollows on her side."HERETIC!" Shouted the cleric as he threw a bolt of lighting on one of the scythe hollow but he was constantly pinned down by Livenne's dark orbs. He is armour has sustained a lot of damages, he was bleeding from a slice to the back.>Side with the cleric>Side with Shard Livenne>Side with none, keep watching>Ignore them, move along>Something else?

>>23980>>24140You chose to aid the cleric. Shard Livenne frowned at your presence; at least she knew about what happened in Pilgrim's peak.Time to even the odds.And that concludes our thread! thank you for participating.

>>28802You started to conjure a simple fireball but naught was the result. You took a direct hit from a dark orb and five pursuers.The slime covering the dress barely did anything. You collapsed on the ground with a gaping black wound visible to the world. Most of your front ribcage was gone exposing your vitals.Your swan dagger spread its wings, it flew straight to shard's Livenne eyes, She wiggled in pain but unlike the Scythe hollow, she had a sense of self preservation. The shard crushed a small bone in her hand which took her somewhere else."NO!" shouted the cleric. Your grave injury gave him enough motivation to finish off the scythe hollow. He crawled next to you in a desperate attempt to heal you with his miracles. but it was too late._____YOU DIED______You were reborn in the sanctuary's bonfire. The strength of the bonfire lured you here instead of some emberless ash.You found the same cleric next to you, he looked perturbed "By the gods, you startled me.

I thought i could purge the shrine by myself but i am no match for the darkness inside. The way i see it, their high priest is hiding a beast in the heart of the shrine.

For better or worse, i think you are ready to started our journey.."She briefly glimpsed over her ring "Seek Yurex, Champion of Ash, He was once a vessel of ash but he forsook his duty.

His mighty greatsword bounced off in an audible PING You did feel an immense pain radiating from your head. It was a better option rather than the first one. The man of god conjured a lightning spear and hit the plague knight in the chest, Heldenmutt laughed in return "Pathetic Whelp."You could barely move your hands let alone move in your state; you were simply too heavy.>Let them handle Heldenmutt>Fire a simple fireball at him [15-20]>something else?

>>29781Nothing good was behind the feathered door. you recalled the firekeeper's word. It was for the best not to open it.You exited the sanctuary and headed to the west to the bridge. you took very slow and cautious steps until you crossed the other side.______Pilgrim's woods_______The woods reeked of darkness, everything withering and dying. Cold, ancient trees covered most of the area. Silent crows watched every step of your. You felt their prying eyes pecking on your soul. Something was unsettling about them. The real noise came from gurglings, growlings and howlings of unseen beasts.You found an emberless ash at the start of the road. The main road has split into two path, one to North, the other was to the south.You could venture in outside of the road but you didn't know what lied hidden in these dark woods.>take the northern path>Take the southern path>Ignore the paths, Head N/S/E/W>Something else?

Poor against strong physical attacks but will provide protection against magic and lightning. Again, the path splits, you found yourself overwhelmed by these branches paths. Crows migrated from one tree to another the more your progressed through the woods.The northern path looked it was going up. there was a black tower with crows flying around it.The southern path quite the opposite, it was steep in its start, it was also riddled with thick bubbling mud. It would slow down your movement.>Back track>Take the N/S path>ignore the road, head N/S/E/W>something else?

>>30577You took the northern path.The crows started to cawk upon approaching the black tower.

His moves were flashy and quick for the eye. The two of you approached the jailers Who cawked in defiance, the phantom's dodges were precise and fast, he was almost a blur to you and the jailers. The crows focused their slices and thrusts on the phantom. You had a lot of opportunity to strike.>Throw your fireball at the short sword crow [15-20]>Throw your fireball at the rapier crow [15-20]>Throw your fireball at the dagger crow [15-20]>Something else?

The set is terribly weak against lightning. >Red Scale Katana [20 DEX required]An exotic Katana forged in the eastern lands. very fragile but can cause excessive bleeding. Better used as a two handed weapon.Honorable Giznru was hired to end a puss of the abyss down these chasms. He ordered his snake to watch over this lift while he would cleanse the area. The snake waited ages and ages for his master to return.... perhaps one day he will reunite with his master >Banner of HanshiraA red banner of an eastern kingdom. This banner is the sole surviving legacy of this fallen kingdom.You did find the lift. You surfaced at Ashen end where Masterless Ieyo resided.It coiled from fear upon sensing its own eyes. Despite its large size, it was trembling before you.>Attack Masterless Ieyo>Ignore it, head to the sanctuary
>>34996>Ignore it, head to the sanctuaryWe might be able to do more than just kill it in the future, and we have a relatively easy way to pass by it now. We don't need to kill him yet.

>>34996>Ignore it, head to the sanctuaryStill wary if he's gonna attack us, but we're in no condition to fight at the moment anyways.

>>35117>>35225>>35235>>35240The trek wasn't easy but you made it the sanctuary.The Failures of Vienshlan were the first to spot you collapsing near the ruins."Kind traveler!" they squealed, they painfully moved themselves to kiss you on the forehead rinsing all of your exhaustion. the pain was still there."Go forth, Kind traveler, aid the weak..aid u-" they stopped in mid-sentence, shying away from you. You weren't focusing on them at the moment.With enough strength, you brought the maiden to the sanctuary. Both brother Donnel and Neegel rushed towards her. Doing their best to aid her.You defied all the odds to bring her here in one piece. You felt proud of yourself.And that concludes our thread! thank you for participating. I hope you are enjoying this as much as i do.Good night.

So if you want to change something, just say so.how to balance magic in the future?
>>41219let's try the red scale set >spoiler you can't magic is always OP
>>41263i know but what keeps us from spamming a soul spear or a firestorm for an example?
>>41281well usually it's MP/mana regen...
>>41287...which we don't have.I guess I will limit the dice roll for after the first usage of X15-20 will be become 17-20 and so on.
>>41302sounds like a good idea for exhaustion, but maybe not after the first roll (depending on spell level and INT/FTH) as long as it resets/lowers after a while, ofc
>>41322of course, it will reset after every encounter.Some doodle for the doodle godsWould you like to change our weapon(s) before starting?
>>41336neat banner even if i was imagining a more samurai-like design and no, let's keep our weapons like that
The nameless maiden had no use of her legs after succumbing into the chasm. The pyromancer had no other choice but to amputate them. The cleric felt helpless as his holy miracles weren't able to save her petite legs.Brother Dannol wanted to speak with you alone. After ensuring your privacy, he addressed the arrival of the maiden."This woman doesn't follow our holy guidance. I may not know her sect but i sense purity in her heart. For that, i thank you, deeply. Take this, chant this and exhaustion will wash away. When your heart glows with the divines, speak to me. I will have more miracles for you."you gained tailsman and perseverance>Speak with____>Head to____>something else? sorry , i was eating>>41349well it was a doodle, it might flesh it out later.
>>41448>Speak with the nameless maiden
>>41466The maiden had little strength to move her lips in the first place but she chose to speak to her rescuer "Good savior, you did not abandon me when many would have... I, maiden Lostrea, will pledge myself to you and you only. Bring me wondrous holy souls and i will offer them them to the gods....or perhaps, i can try to cleanse evil souls corrupted by man....Afterall, that was our purpose..." she looked down the floor.> Purify Twisted Soul of a watchdog> Purify Twisted Soul of Shard Othlom> Purify Twisted Souls of the Jailors>Leave>Something else?
>>41546> Purify Twisted Soul of a watchdogwho said "giant puppies"?
>>41568>>41546I say let her recover before we purify souls, she did just get a double leg amputation
>>41601fair enough.hmm, we can always leave her the twisted soul and tell her to rest first and take care of it while we're awayno?
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>41568>>41601

>>41632>Head westwith outr shiny armor now we should be able to explore that zone guarded by a giant snake
>>41658You left the sanctuary and headed to the west. The giant snake was still terrified by your presence . However, the world ended shortly after the snake; The abyss stretched in the horizon, Only the simple bridge south of here was leading to pilgrim's woods.>Attack Masterless Ieyo>Head to___>something else?
>>41756...oh it's the same snake, now i feel stupid whatever, let's leave him alone and finish exploring pilgrim's woods
>>41767you crossed the bridge and entered Pilgrim's woods. The Red scale armour was quite heavy. Simple maneuvers in mud riddled areas would be a tiresome feat. >Take the N/S road>Ignore road , Head N/S/E/W of the road>Something else?
>>41815>Take the S road
>>41827As you walked down the southern path, you found dozens of broken dolls along the road. You had a suspicious feeling that they were watching you but every time you turned your neck, you found them still as a rock.As you reached another forked path, you found a small doll sitting on a recent corpse of an archer, he archer was gutted wide open but his longbow and feather arrows were mostly intact. The doll looked docile, he didn't jump around like the first one you encountered and yet, the blood on his claws was fresh. He looked at you in a curious fashion but that was all.>Smash the doll with your mace [8-20]>Snatch the longbow and arrows, head N/S [12-20]>ignore the longbow, move N/S>Something else?
>>41941>Something else?attempt to communicate with the murderdoll?
>>41980The doll ran away from you. He climbed a mound of broken dolls in the clearing up ahead. The ground started to shake. Dozens of dolls were pouring from this mound. each one of them had a distinctive thread connecting it the mound.You heard a plethora of horns. some sounded familiar, some felt odd to your ears. Three Banners were raised by bigger dolls surrounding the mound. Each belonged to a different land swallowed by time.From the mound, A sickly hand emerged pointing at you and cursing you in an odd language.It didn't sound mature.Dozens of dolls made advanced formations , ready to strike you.>Fight Children of the weave >Run
>>42084i have a stupid idea...>raise the Banner of Hanshira
blue= pikemenyellow= axemenorange= bowmen
>>42117You raised your red banner, the doll were confused for a second, but the bigger dolls soon guided the smaller ones. you rolled behind a large boulder as the dolls as the back loosened their arrows.Somehow, you felt a spark of power radiating from your banner.>Smash the assaulting dolls with your mace [19-20]>Lit the frontal lines with a fireball [19-20]>Try to run [17-20]>Raise your banner again in front of the dolls [10-20]>Something else?

Rolled 17 (1d20)>>42236>>Raise your banner again in front of the dolls [10-20]
>>42249>>42291you raised your banner once more. This time, it was planted to the ground, A red aura radiated from the banner. In a few moments, All the broken dolls you haven seen from earlier started to meld with each other.They poured into the scene, they didn't posses any weapon but they were savage and brutal. They clashed with the smaller dolls. The bigger dolls were having a hard time organizing their ranks. it was a pure chaos.>Run>Attack the ___ banner doll with ___ [15-20]>Attack the mound itself with ___ [17-20]>Something else?

>>42432>and no difference was made
>>42432>>42381You conjured a fireball and threw it right at the Orange Banner Doll. Since it was mostly made out of wood, it didn't stand much of a chance.In a blink, All the bow dolls crumbled. A hand emerged from the mound, it sliced you at the back but your armour was sturdy enough, you smacked the hand to return the favor with your mace. it hid inside the mound. The banner dolls were conflicted; they had to either fight you or organize the lesser dolls.>Run>Aid 'your' dolls [15-20]>Attack the ___ banner doll with ___ [15-20]>Attack the mound itself with ___ [17-20]>Something else?

Rolled 12 (1d20)>>42480>Aid 'your' dolls [15-20]
>>42508>>42520In the end, you were bigger, more stronger than these measly dolls. Advantages in numbers weren't on their side. You charged with your divine mace. Crushing dolls and breaking their ranks.You felt two pokes in the lower portion of your back, the remaining banner dolls tired to attack you with the somewhat sharp end of their banner. Again, your red scale armour proved efficient to withstand the blow.The Mound was shattered unexpectedly, revealing the same doll who ran from you but in another doll, it was slenderer. It appears that the doll was trying to escape after this utter defeat.'Your' dolls were mopping up the rest of the dolls including the banner ones.>Let him run away.>Chase him, crush him with your mace [17-20]>Throw a perfectly aimed fireball at his back [15-20]>Something else?

>>42662>>42669>>42677>>42702Your fireball set him ablaze. It soon crumpled on the ground. All of the other dolls returned back to their inanimate state afterwards.+0 Souls______YOU DEFEATED______ Your dolls were still standing, they keeled towards the red banner of Hanshira. When it lost its glow, they collapsed on the floor like their brethren.In front of you, a rusty old gate was opened, a small ruined manor rested on a hill. A flicker of light radiated from the second floor.>Approach the manor>Ignore it, head ____>Something else?
>>42849>Approach the manor
>>42849>Go back to recent Bonfire
>>42870>>42888You walked to the manor, Its former garden was decorated with dozens of headless dolls in various poses.A headless life-sized doll awaited you. She wore a fancy attire only fit for nobles, The manor itself was riddled with threads of endless colours. It was almost impossible to walk inside without being tangled in one of these colorful webs."May I touch the hands of the murderer of my children?" the doll asked extending its right hand. Her left hand was teemed with lots of needles. You felt sorrow and grief in her tone.>Give her you hands>Attack her>Ignore her, leave the manor>Something else?
>>43003And that's why it was a bad idea to kill the doll leader.>Give her you hands
>>43003welp, i guess that was a bad idea...>Give her you hands
>>43033>>43041The doll's hand was cold as ice and yet she was the one who trembled after touching your."I..." you felt like she forced herself to bow before you "....am Weave, bearer of the wooden children in Pilgrim's woods. There were a lot of us, serving humans in their pitiful wars under their powerful banners. B-but i do believe i am the last of my kind. Yes, I can no longer sense them...."Weave 'looked' at the carnage below, the tips of her finger kept twitching " I can feel them; Banners of fallen kingdoms scattered around this dying world. Bring them to me and i shall reward you handsomely.">Accept>Decline
>>43239What could go wrong?>Accept
>>43239>>Acceptthe least we can do
>>43270>>43277>>43294"Thank you." She bowed again "Please, I need to be alone." She gently closed the door behind her.With that done, you still had three more branches to explore....>Head to the Northern road>Head to the South eastern road>Head to the South western road>Ignore road, head N/S/E/W>Something else?A quick question, which type of maps do you prefer? something like Pilgrim's wood (meaty, lots of branches, more complicated ) so Ioa's sea (Simpler, straight forward easier to explore...etc?)
>>43397>Head to the Northern roadI like the map so far!
>>43397>Head to the South eastern road i like pilgrim's woods better personally, but they're both good
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>43438>>43443
>>43438>>43443you took the south eastern road, it lead you to a dark tunnel in the heart of a giant mountain. Trees were few around said tunnel.>Enter the tunnel>Backtrack to___ Continue exploring Pilgrim's woods>Something else?and the bosses? how are they so far?
>>43626>Enter the tunnel the bosses are cool
>>43626>>43626>Backtrack to___ Continue exploring Pilgrim's woods>Head to the Northern roadI'd like to finish exploreing here first.Bosses are interesting so far, only bad thing I could say is that your word count per update is very low.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>43693>>43666i should say that almost all of the draw/written stuff is on the go. i have no prewritten stuff. I also take sometime to check my posts for those painful mistakes. so yeah, it does take some time.
>>43754I feel like there are too many bosses and they don't really feel like bosses. Just unique enemies, which is still cool
>>43693>>43666The northern road looped you back to a previously seen path. You felt disappointed>Backtrack to the SW road>Continue to the unexplored Northern road>Continue to the three forked road>Something else?.
>>43860>Continue to the unexplored Northern roadalso see if Patches is still here
>>43860>Continue to the unexplored Northern road
>>43860>Continue to the three forked road
>>43852noted.I chose doing so to make it feel less video gamey , that and i wanted to implement the sense of desolation and loneliness in a way.But sure. I will try to balance it.
>>43924I just have a feeling we would try to run from a truly boss tier fight if there were no fog walls
>>43924>I chose doing so to make it feel less video gamey , that and i wanted to implement the sense of desolation and loneliness in a way.It works, you don't need to change it just for me, im just giving feedback.
>>43896>>43904>>43911You sloughed your way to the northern road, you couldn't continue onwards in the mud with your current armour. A step more and you would sink. you wanted to kick the man who launched you into the chasm but he wasn't there. Nevertheless, you found bloodstains near the ledge. You saw some deep tracks disappearing in the mud....two have fought here. One was retreating from the fight at one point.Suddenly , your shriving eye orb started to flicker wildly , the eye showed at a spirit of vengeance with a lance longer than you. He was a brute in an disorienting armour, made of mirrors. >Submerge in the mud, hide [18-20]>Use your Swan ring [15-20]>Face the spirit of vengeance>Run away>Something else?
>>44099>Use your Swan ring [15-20]

Rolled 16 (1d20)>>44099>>Use your Swan ring [15-20]
>>44150>>44273>>44166The spirit of vengeance spent hours and hours looking for you. At times, he was mere feet from you. Finally, he gave up. He used his black crystal to return to his world.It must be Kesp, the man you killed without any provocation with your bare hands. You hoped that this would be the last of him.>Choose a path in the three forked road [SW/SE]>Back track to the SW road all the way down>Something else?

>>44308>Choose a path in the three forked road [SW/SE]finish exploreing the road to the west, then hit the SE road.
>>44349>>44350you chose the south eastern path. Another fork awaited you. One branch looped you back to the children of Weave, The other path had a tree Mimic fighting a small group of pilgrims leaded by a scythe hollow.>Attack mimic>Attack Pilgrims>Ignore them, run past them>Backtrack to____>Attack the victor>Something else?
>>44503>Attack mimicoh, i just remembered that we forgot to pick up the longbow earlier after the dolls attacked
>>44539i am glad someone remembered.
>>44539>>44541This one was young and some what reckless. You crushed one its limbs with your divine mace. Blunt force was the only answer here.The scythe hollow and the Pilgrims provided a perfect source of distraction to the disoriented mimic. The deed was done after a lengthy period of time.+1000 soulThe Scythe hollow wasn't completely mindless; he gave a small ring as a reward.>Ring of thornsA peculiar ring made from a living thorn. Occasionally Discharges painful thorns at all directions. The rings requires fresh blood from its host and so it will protect him/her...only occasionally.>Attack the hollows>Move along>Search the mimic? [19-20]>Something else?

Rolled 9 (1d20)>>44777>>Search the mimic? [19-20]
>>44821>>44838>>44858The Mimics' insides were full of strong bile, something capable of melting flesh and bone alike. You tampered a little with the corpse but you had to back away eventually.A landscape of graves awaited you to the south, It was guarded by a bulky figure, He was bald. His face spoke of bitter times from all of these scars. His skin was faint grey. He didn't possess any weapons....just two menacing fists. He took pride in exposing his deformed chest. A visible hole was seen in his abdomen.He seemed a bit more sane than Shard Othlom; he bowed to a small group of Pilgrims. One of the Pilgrims offered an Estus flask for the lonely shard. He refused with a smile. There was a somewhat large hut at the end of a cliff onwards.>Fight Shard Boiel>Backtrack to____>Head towards the hut>Something else?
>>45034>Hail Shard Boielhe sounds sane-ish, might as well talk
>>45034>Head towards the hut
>>45075>>45072we could do that too sure.
>>45072>>45075He remained cautious as you approached. His voice was somewhat distorted "Traveler, this path is only designated to the pilgrims of the dark. Head-"He stopped in mid sentence "Othlom....You have bested one of us...." he was considering his words "Grant me his soul and You shall not be harmed for your transgression.">Accept>Decline>Consume Twisted Soul of Othlom in front of him out of spite
>>45160>DeclineOthlom was twisted and demented, we'll give him the soul after cleansing
>>45201"Then, Do forgive me...." the Shard was determined to take the soul of his friend by one mean or another. And than concludes our semi short thread! Thank you for participating.
