Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheHeadMasterTG-A large, inhuman man sat in a hall made of orange crystals all perfectly aligned and symmetrical to make a spiral shaped circle around a pool of a strange golden liquid which sat in front of the massive king and his subjects. He wore a large crown and the robes of a judge, looking down in sadness at the images he saw before him as his robed subjects and cute little fluffy things watched with horror.The world they had known before had become awash with chaos, and that was before their eternal foes of the same name had arrived again. It appeared that the realm's natural magic and monsters had returned. And had changed everything, now creatures from fairy tales lived among man, and man lived among terrifying things straight out of nightmares. The king rubbed his white beard as most of his subjects turned away, crying for how much the world had changed and lost since they left their watch of it. But the king smiled and leaned forward as Seven strange little cutesy creatures landed in front of him to get a closer look. "Oh yes, civilization has SURVIVED!" He yells out, making everything in the room stop dead with silence, except the seven little things in front of him "No it has flourished! sure it has changed, BUT LAW AND ORDER SURVIVES!"He stood casting the entire room in shadow, reaching his hand towards the pool as the image inside shifted againcont
>>1508656"But without a protector, it will not last for long" He said grimly "We need to instate new Magical Girls""WHAT!?" One of the seven tiny things yells bursting into flames, she is a small plush creature dressed in a red robe, with bull horns and flower growing on her.Who are you? Carol Hiral.

Not going to lie. I kinda hope the other 3 characters join our team. One way or another.

One quick doodle, I'll be able to draw later but right now I have to finish up inking something I was working on.

Having an Oni as a teacher isn't any fun (+3 Wits, +3 Purity +2 Charm, +1 power, and the teamwork ability)Pretty surprised Carol is doing well. My only two cents on the matter of nameless is that we already done a blank slate with Eve.Still, either Carol or Mikki guaranty getting Amelia being recrutable, since an uncle is in Japan and she said she would visit brausrburg

>>1508745 Art wise I would have picked Mikita but I felt like we already had the Japanese culture thing covered with soul reaper

>>1508745>Pretty surprised Carol is doing well.It ties into a popular subplot of Young Demon Familiar quest, so I'm more surprised so many aren't picking it. Especially given how many Monster MCs we already got right now.
>>1508758Mikki*. Autocorrect is my worst enemy.
>>1508745Probably because of the inherent drama of YDFQ.>>1508760Monster girls always are popular. Its just the way of things.
>>1508769>Monster girls always are popular. Its just the way of things.Sure, but transformation into monster-forms would be available anyway.
>>1508736Ooooh I like itAnyways, carol won. Updating the still unfinished sheetand writing next part/vote!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPFL2ma7cRMand some music to get us in the mood!
>>1508760I just assume most of the votes would have been for nameless, since people would probably want to make a strong monster and not bother looking for a more exotic form to change into later on.
I probably miscounted, but I'm going to assume poor Carol was reborn as a monster.
>>1508774Keep me in mind when you write the description! (I say demandingly)
>>1508808She's not a monster. Or at least she probably isn't. Unless she suddenly contracts monstergirl diseases.
>>1508831It is possible with yyv's world traveling ability
>>1508831>>1508831People tend to spontaneously or gradually transform into either monsters or beasts in this world.
>>1508845I mean humans, monsters are people too. Also they sometimes turn into monstergirls(guys?) instead.
>>1508760I just don't want Mali to get hurt. She's been through more than enough shit with her crappy original family, and I think she deserves to be happy and never have to deal with them again. And I honestly like the premise of the nameless girl a bit more.
>>1508658> Nameless. Oh? It seems you're already dead. Ripped to pieces by somekind of monster, how sad. The old you is gone, but you're being reborn as a monster right now.

And You get to choose what kind of monster you are, which depending on what you are, gives you a wide variety of benefits)Huh, did i make it in time?
>>1508854While it will hurt Mali initially, in the long term it will really help her grow, given that she now has proof that Alice was loved and not just some cattle to be sold when times are tough, and that she was never forgotten.
The king turned to her and smiled, before turning his attention to the images of girls flashing through the pool. They all lived very different lives and each one had the potential to be a powerful magical girl because of how they lived. Each one of their paths had some how installed them with a great sense of justice, loyalty or simple kindness in some way or another. And while his subjects gathered around in anticipation, the king watched emotionlessly, until he stuck his finger into the pool. The image stopped on an older looking girl, not quite an adult yet but close to it.She was standing in a street, surrounded by monsters, staring in awe at a tv screen behind a glass screen. Her hair was long, and blood red hanging down to her back. Her skin was tanned from work and she lacked...certain womanly charms. Her eyes had innocence in them, and were as green and blue as the sea. A strange puppy like thing tried to calm down the burning and ranting cow...plant...plushie thing? as the other five of her friends leaned to get a closer look.In the reflection of the glass, they could see her once broken nose and the sad look behind her cheerful eyes."She...she is the one, the first to receive a new locket" the king said, holding his hand to the seven tiny things "Contractors, to me we shall decide which of you shall guide her and give her the locket democratically-Carol Hiral-Ya know, I heard that monsters had some really strange and powerful magic from that bastard I call my father, but I never knew they could trap people inside tiny boxes like this. I frown a bit, as I try to figure out why they're so calm in here with all of us giants out here. I know if I was that small I'd be terrified.I lean closer, tapping on the glass trying to get any reaction from the tiny people inside this thing."Hey, don't tap on the glass! I just cleaned it" A monster with a snake like head hisses at me, freezing my heart like a pond in winter.I try to explain myself, but I'm still not used to dealing with people like him, and end up just backing away and running like I was told to when I was a little girl. No dammit, monsters aren't bad! I don't have to be scared of them anymore"Sorry!" I yell back, turning back around as the fear washes away from me in an instant, a confident grin on my face as the snake man looks at me oddly "I didn't know, I'll clean it if its any trouble""No?" He says as I try to avoid getting trampled by what I think might've been a troll in a dress "Just...don't touch, okay?""Understood" I say, saluting him as I turn to find my way back to the little apartment I've found myself in this city while I search for my little sister "but the offer still stands, just so ya know!""HEY, watch where you're going!?" A short thing with a bag over its head yells at me as I nearly step on it"Didn't see you there" I say awkwardly, as I try to avoid tripping into any of the folks in fancy, noble looking clothes.-cont
>>1508879That's assuming she and/or Iris doesn't freak out and attack her on sight (or just tell her to fuck off in Irises case). You're probably right, but if and when they meet up it's going to suck for everyone, Mali might have a breakdown and several magical girls will get turned into candy. But they'll get past that I hope, and maybe go on a sisterly adventure to atomize their parents.
>>1508883"Are you sure she's a good choice" A feminine voice said from behind a grey robe, with a glass face "She seems a bit like a""Cult member that just broke out?" A little thing wearing a shark hat on her head sneered "I was going to say Yokel, but thank you Azure wave" the thing sighed as the king turned to them and huffed, waving his hand over the gathered assembly, holding a small golden locket in his hands the size of small houses."Silence, I have made my choice, now" He says, leaning over the gathered assembly "WHICH OF YOU, is going to lead the charge, metaphorically speaking of course"-Carol Hiral-I can't Beileve it took me all night to find this place, I swear this city changes every time I go out into it.I groan as I walk over the creaky floor boards, and fall down on my bed, next to the moonlight streaming in from the grimy window. The blanket might be rough, but I am used to worse, besides I have it all to myself. Hell I have an entire room to myself....but it doesn't make me happy. Its lonely here and I still haven't found poor little alice. I'm starting to think I'll never be able to find her-Who is your contractor? Charlie the Mook:A foul tempered and mouthed imp with a smoking habit, dressed like a bum but he won't lead you wrong...most likely (Reputation +1, and The Show stopper ability) Lady Petal:A somewhat stern and serious contractor in the form of a six armed cat plant thing? acts somewhat like a noble knight. (Purity +3 and the Proper Style trait) Crimson Dream:The lazy leader of the destructive Saviors, sealed in contractor form. Powerful,Reliable (when she isn't napping) and the pioneer of monster forms (Power +3 and 1 extra form) Emerald Yellow Twirl: A battle/fun loving and kind of dumb Destructive savior, sealed in contractor form. A master of mixing two different kinds of magic together (Speed +3 and 1 extra magic) Pink Holiday: A smart girl that is made entirely of order magic, turned into a contractor. A little obsessed with horror stories and monsters of all kinds. A great tactician (Wits +3 and The battle plan ability) Tangerine Jubilee: The Airheaded and kind of goofy Trumpeteer of the destructive saviors sealed in contractor form. Ditzy at the best of times.(Hotbloodedness +3 and Natural Rythme trait) Azure Wave: A somewhat tomboyish and shorttempered girl, and the least magical of the destructive saviors sealed in contractor form. Still a little Skeptical (Strength +3 and The Rage Ability) Violet Shade: The Gloomy and somewhat grim Violinist of the destructive saviors sealed in contractor form. A master of the summoning arts but very quiet. (Charm +3 and The Summoning magic ability *summons based on your magic*)

>>1508902> Crimson Dream:The lazy leader of the destructive Saviors, sealed in contractor form. Powerful,Reliable (when she isn't napping) and the pioneer of monster forms (Power +3 and 1 extra form)It's only fair for her to pass the torch. Also, will it take one wish to free all of the Destructive Saviors, or one wish per girl?
>>1508902> Azure Wave: A somewhat tomboyish and shorttempered girl, and the least magical of the destructive saviors sealed in contractor form. Still a little Skeptical (Strength +3 and The Rage Ability)I am incurring roaming charges just updating here, so I hope my choices win

Ditzy at the best of times.(Hotbloodedness +3 and Natural Rythme trait)Seems a perfect fit.>>1508894Well its a good thing that we have non order/chaos life magic. We can totally rectify things after a fight. Because you k ow it will be a fight.Point is. Mali will suffer short term, it will be a huge misunderstanding. And then Mali gains a sister again. In the mea time, Carol and friends realise that not all chaos beasts are shoot on site.Perfect for both their growths.
>>1508902> Crimson Dream:The lazy leader of the destructive Saviors, sealed in contractor form. Powerful,Reliable (when she isn't napping) and the pioneer of monster forms (Power +3 and 1 extra form)Time to pass the torch
>>1508936Though going Pink Holiday may complicate things with that description...
>>1508902> Lady Petal:A somewhat stern and serious contractor in the form of a six armed cat plant thing? acts somewhat like a noble knight. (Purity +3 and the Proper Style trait)
>>1508936Fair enough, though I suspect it will be less of a misunderstanding and more of Mali going "it's not real it's not real it's not real Alice is dead she doesn't matter this thing has to die if it's dead so is the hurt". Or something like that. I just hope Mali doesn't outright murder anyone before she calms down, candy magic doesn't play around. Unless it does.
>>1508943I imagine she and Iris will hit it off. I'm honestly surprised she's winning, at least by such a large margin.
Rolled 4 (1d4)>>1508902Fuck me, I don't know which to choose1. Petal2. Twirl3. Jubilee4. Wave
>>1508902>Charlie the Mook

Alright, holiday won. Updating sheet and writing update!

>>1508958Nah, I don't think Mali would want to hurt her family, Alith on the other hand, she will sense that her mother is in pain and misunderstand the situation.
>>1509003You had plenty of screen time last quest you poor bastard, give the girls their chance. Charlie was the contractor in the first quest in case you didn't know draw friend.
>>1508958On the contrary. It will be a fight until one of two things happen.>Alice's name is called>Carol's name is called.Then it becomes a matter of Mali fucking booking it with Mirrors...And if a certain magic is in Carol's possession...well...>>1508964I always forget that of the pair. Iris is definately order...there is that saving grace.>>1508996Though I do hope you're right CUA...>>1509008They both won't know who they are to start, most likely. Though maybe Mali will catch on.
>>1509008The family that sold her like a goat so they could build a wall instead of feeding the other kids? No, I don't think Mali will handle that situation rationally, and I doubt anyone around her will disagree with her.
>>1509012I didn't, I just knew he'd be the funnest to draw. haha I'm still inking right now, but getting near to done
>>1509017I don't think so, as much as she would hate to admit it, I'm sure Mali can remember her sisters face. And when she sees it, all of her worst memories will come flying back into her and all that will remain is one instinct: attack.
>>1509003Sorry, Charlie, looks like no love for you. At least you won't have to do damage control this time.
Finally, UMGQ is back.I have been saving this since about FSRQ 3, but behold my submission for a theme song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YiTuxirnlEI thought this was immensely fitting for Crimson Dream back when I was binging the archives, now I guess I just kind of feel like it's a good theme in general for HM's magical ones.Hi HM
>>1509033And I disagree. It will trigger flight. Not fight. Mali runs. Its well established.
>>1509034I just don't want to make Charlie do all the work, let the new generation take over.And why did the old crew get sealed in contractor form anyway?
>>1509033>all that will remain is one instinct: attackI really can't see that. Her memories are seriously distressing to Mali, if she would be confronted by her (former) family, she would bail or collapse into a crying wreck.Its her daughters I would worry about in that situation.
It kind of feels hopeless, I mean sure I enjoy being in this city, I mean I didn't think the buildings here actually lived up to the name skyscraper, but they do. They didn't look that tall when I was outside of it, and now they loom over my head reminding me how much ground I have to cover. I'm just happy I can leave the entire noble quarter and that massive castle out of my search for now, since Alice never liked flashy stuff like that. So she has to be somewhere down here in the lower quarters, the slums that are almost like home. Unless she wanted to get away from anything like home?I groan, rolling over my sandlike blanket, staring at the wet ceiling, watching the fan over my head lazily drift around a someone or something runs over the floor above my head, covering me in dust as the smell of the sea and the quiet yapping of waves join in the seemingly endless concert of sounds.But that isn't what is keeping me awake. Its worry. for myself and my sister. I don't know how much longer I can live in this place, I hate the smell of fish and the only job I could find that didn't involve anything...nasty, was bringing it up big nets of the stuff. Sure I enjoyed the sea at first, it was a welcome sight from what I knew but...but then I saw the sirens and heard about what they did. And I got a cruel reminder than my father wasn't entirely wrong about all the crap he spewed constantly about the world...all those lies.I sigh and sit up, the back of my neck itching from laying wrong on my pillow. Maybe I can find something to light a candle or find a flash light I can borrow. I can't sleep, because if I am having this much trouble here, alice must be having it worse and just the thought of that is making me sick with worry. Also it is too loud around here right now, I think there's a party of some kind upstairs but I can't be sure.I mean, sure I was told that this part of the city isn't safe, but I walked from the farm here in the middle of the night so I'm pretty sure I'll be safe. Smiling I start to head towards the door without a lock and"Hi" A soft, tiny voice saysI gasp, my heart stopping as I grab the nearest object, the remote to that television box thing and turn around, half expecting to see a big spider with a bag ready to snatch me up. Since people said a monster like that came down here every now and again.Instead I see a pair of pink eyes glowing in the darkness. Wait...what? I tilt my head, frowning as I curiously but cautiously approach the small figure sitting on the window sill, letting in the warm sea air.She's wearing a wide brimmed hat, and a long coat, as well as a bunch of belts wrapped around her tiny, child like body. I flip on the lights and she winces. What...kind of monster is she?She has pink hair, and pointed ears and is the size of cat, with black hands pointed into slight claws and oversized boots."Gah!" She gasps "didn't think you still had electricity!"cont
>>1509019Of course not, she will try to run away. And since magical girls like to block off escape routes, she will be attacking viciously.
>>1509056With all the collateral damage the destructive saviours caused that's what you asked? I'm more curious if all contractors were mgs or if they are just that exception.
>>1509077Naa, some of them used to be chaos monsters.
>>1509066"What kind of monster are you?" I ask as she rubs her oversized eyes,her pink hair wriggling around like an octopuses tentacles "And why are you in my room! Don't you have any manners""Ah, well I'm not any kind of monster you know" She says, wrapping her coat around her tiny body, suddenly turning entirely black like she's turned into shadow itself "I AM A ENVOY OF A WORLD BEYOND YOURS, FROM A TIME LONG SINCE PAST""Stop playing pretend and tell me" I snort, as I look for things around the room in case she gets violent...that lamp might be a good choice "I'm really not in the mood to play right now""Sorry, just trying to be dramatic, anyways, I'm a creature from the realms of order" She says happily, walking up to me, turning pink again as she holds her black hands out to me "A contractor if you would, my job is to find people worthy of our magic to""turn them into monsters? Humans can't have magic" I say bluntly as her eyes go wide"Oh really?! is that how it works with natural magic? its mutative? That's...horrifying but fascinating, could you tell me more?" She asks as I look at her mouth agape, thinking about just leaving her here "Oh sorry, got ahead of myself, but no, this magic will keep you human and let you protect all you care about and this world""Really?" I ask, setting the lamp down as I walk over to her and crouch down to look at her "How do I know you're not cheating me?""Well I can give you a demonstration of the magical girls that came before you, and look into your soul, showing you what it could've changed if it came sooner" She says holding her hand out to me "But I warn you, it may break your mind""I've already broke it once" I say, sneering as I grab her tiny hand and-cont

>>1509167that's what the custom is for
>>1509171Yeah, but who votes for customs? Unless they're in the first vote (and thus devoid of much thought) people tend to only take one of the original options.
Also we are currently tied between Very brave and always determined
>>1509181I mean, if your idea was really interesting or thematic people could always change their vote to it. Don't sell yourself short anon, show us what you got.
>>1509181Lazy won as a character trait for the original quest. The other options actually had benefits. Lazy still won because people found it more fun.
>>1509196Well, the tactician trait involved getting more obvious combat options based on what we knew different enemies were weak to.
>>1509187I will switch to veey determined.
>>1509187I will change from imagin to braves if you need tiebreaker between those 2
>>1509207We cancel each other out. Maybe an official vote between the two options for all players?
Alright so tie breaker so we can move on Very Braveor always determinedAlso, any themes in mind so far?
>>1509230> always determined
>>1509230> Very Brave
>>1509230>BraveAnd themes, as in what? (Abstract themes, setting themes, ... mm some examples)I'm VERY interested in themes.
>>1509230MACHINE MAGIC AND ALL THE GUNSMAGICAL GIRL DAKKA
>>1509230>] always determined
>>1509230> always determinedShould have a charge theme megaman style. Y'know waiting turns in combat for max damage at the right timing. More epic scenes too
>>1509230>I'm actually kinda thinking of a nautical/explorers theme. Since her main motivation is going out into the unknown world to find someone.Maybe a club/beam weapon looking like a spying glass and that sort of thing. Or a vehicle themed girl, with tank-inspired weapons.
>>1509230> Very Brave>Also, any themes in mind so far?That depends more on our power set and fighting style for me, but if we go for noise magic I'll probably have a new song for every attack.
>>1509241Hey Francis! Have you read any of HM's other works?
>>1509263Yup. Haven't touched Fresh Soul Reaper and kinda dropped Demon Familiar after a bit, but I've slogged my way through everything else.
>>1509230> always determinedAnd as for theme, I'll suggest classical monster, shrimp monk, space hero, or artist.I'd have suggested mesoamerican warrior, but I know another quest where the magical girl MC has that theme.
>>1509253Nuke magic master race!
>>1509230>Also, any themes in mind so far?How do you mean themes? Like, story themes? Musical themes?>>1509035for music
>>1509253And I though HM meant theme songs, I'm dumb. As for thematic themes, I like the whole "get the gang back" thing for the Destructive Saviors, and making everything as anime as fucking possible once we get Magical Girling.
>>1509265You are going to need to read ydfq as this MC is the sister of the MC of that quest
>>1509272The theme shall be accordions!
>>1509230> always determinedNo themes yet. Just a weapon preference.
>>1509230Theme: In the abstract I would say start with a strong theme of Discovery. And then maybe move into the importance of good. Like, peoples philosophies clashing with each other. Which goes good with discovery. You discover the many different philosophies people have, like the villians have etc. I'm thinking something along the lines of pure adventure with some heart in it, like early dragon ball (not exact but you know, the feel of fun new discoveries etc.)

"By the way" She says, grinning widely as the smell of blood and mud fills the air as she tips her hat, the world falling away as I remember and go back to something I already lived once before"My name is...Pink Holiday, like the doc""Who?" I ask as she fades away, leaving me to watch what I've already seen.My hands begin to ache, as I feel the sting of blisters as I see myself pushing a plow when our one horse was to sick to work, the sun beating against me and making me burn under it, my skin burning as I slowly make my way through the fields. Then it switches, and I see myself tending to all the crops when a big storm nearly drowned them. I feel the ache in my ribs when I got kicked by that stubborn old mule, trying to get her back over the fense.I feel blood dripping down my nose and chest as I pack the few things I owned under my pa's nose as he slept. I see my self climbing up the metal wall around the farm, sliding down it several times. Before I started grabbing the barbed wire for leverage. I feel my hands hurting like hell, but only see darkness and the lights of the city up ahead of me as things chase after me, formless shadows with big teeth and burning red eyes"Wow....you remind me of one of my dearest friends" Pink giggles as I feel her hand again, sweat pouring down my face as she hugs my hand to her chest with a guilty look on her face "And I'm sorry but....we have to go back in their, this might've helped the girls before you""Wait what did you just do to me?" I pant, still feeling like I'm out of breath"I showed you the real you, now I need to show you the side of yourself you don't want to see" She says sadly, her eyes filling with tears as her hands lighten a bit as I smell...something rotten "If you know your own darkness, then maybe you'll have an easier time staying pure"She hugs my stomach as everything suddenly turns dark, yelling "I'm sorry!"-What is your worst? Easily angered (-2 charm and the short fuse drawback) Lazy (-2 hotbloodedness and the Lazy drawback) Sadistic (-2 purity and the Sadistic drawback) Cowardly (-2 speed and the Cowardly Drawback) Paranoid (-2 Power and the Crazed Suspicion drawback) Naive (-2 wits and the Too Trusting Drawback) Spoiled(-2 strength and the Spoiled rotten drawback) Selfish (-1 reputation the Self Serving drawback) <Custom> (2 attribute points to remove, and a drawback, and again, don't go overboard)
>>1509309Or, if we wanted something more humorous:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJS3bIpGYT0I literally just remembered that this existed, I'm definitely going with Nuclear magic now.
>>1509317> Paranoid (-2 Power and the Crazed Suspicion drawback)
>>1509317> Easily angered (-2 charm and the short fuse drawback)
>>1509317>>>> Jaded (-2 Hotbloodedness and the Muted Colors drawback)
>>1509317> Naive (-2 wits and the Too Trusting Drawback)
>>1509317> Easily angered (-2 charm and the short fuse drawback)As interesting as the story behind Sadistic would be, I don't want to hate Carol for being a bitch to her family or something like that.
>>1509317> Naive (-2 wits and the Too Trusting Drawback)Also very fitting.And not to sound like I'm nitpicking, but isn't cowardly kind of in conflict with brave?
>>1509317 Naive (-2 wits and the Too Trusting Drawback)Oh them country bumpkins.
>>1509350Does naive really fit with how jaded she is about her fathers lies and knowing how dangerous the world is?I'm not really seeing anything naive about her.
>>1509317Custom suggestions: >Overly Curious - she HAS to check something out even if she knows it's going to hurt. >Too Competitive. She needs to win a battle, or challenge. NEEDS to. Even if it might endanger herself or others.
>>1509355But she knows very little about the world. She couldn't imagine the evil that is Layla for example. She would just see a pale cat lady
>>1509355In all fairness, she doesn't know what a TV is, or how to act around a lot of people. And HM, what happened to Elliot? I didn't see her on the Contractors list.
>>1509317> Selfish (-1 reputation the Self Serving drawback)I'm betting being selfish was the thing she was when that day happened. Which she deeply regrets.
>>1509339>>1509344>>1509350>>1509351All our MC knows of the world is that her parents lied to her about everything bit how dangerous the world is. Naive seems like among the least fitting here, considering how distrustful she has been sofar
>>1509365>But she knows very little about the world.Thats not what Naive means here, it even spells it out with the "too trusting" flaw. It means being naive in the sense of not recognizing danger, which she clearly does.
>>1509376I couldn't come up with what she'd give
>>1509376>In all fairness, she doesn't know what a TV is, or how to act around a lot of people.That being unexperienced, not naive.Naive 'can' mean that, but in this context it doesn't.
>>1509383>>1509384Fair points. I will switch to.>Overly Curious.Honestly I am not a fan of any of these drawbacks right now.
>>1509384She doesn't know the extent of the evil in the world. So far she only sees things that are overtly monstrous as enemies
>>1509399>So far she only sees things that are overtly monstrous as enemiesWhich certainly doesn't imply a too trusting nature, as the Too Naive weakness is. It'd be more arguing for Paranoid because if anything she sees more things as dangerous than there actually are, not too few.
>>1509390Ok, I was worried that something happened to her. And I would think randomness powers and fusion right off the bat if I had to guess what her benefits would be.
Her background of being naive means little here. This is one of our only chances to make choices based on meta-wants. Someone can come from a naive background and still be sharp as an ice pick and not have much trouble getting over their naivety or etc. what we're really doing here is choosing her personality and we don't have to stick to what's been written into her background or etc.
>>1509420>Her background of being naive means little here.It establishes her personality longterm, and realistically, "Too naive" makes absolutely no sense and has zero character justification.
>>1509424So you're agreeing with me? Sorry I'm confused because you linked to me but then what you said seems to add to what I was saying, but without a linking word like, "this, becuse it establishes.." etc. If you were disagreeing I think you misunderstood what I said because your point is along the lines of what I was saying.
>>1509424I was responding to all the people choosing Naive 'because it fits' by saying we can really choose anything we want, it doesn't have to fit. We get to have that freedom here at the beginning of the game, unlike later on when we have to be a bit more logical or true to backstory/character. So have fun, be free. Etc. that was the spirit of what I was writing. Sorry I'm not writing well because I'm doing other art stuff at the same time *Blush*
>>1509446No I was laying out my point of how I think that her background does not imply naivety in the slightest, regardless of the rest of your point. Sorry if that caused confusion.I'm just saying that some make more sense than others and its not purely a free meta-choice and one should take into account what makes "sense" for her to be like with her backstory.And someone jaded about their own parents lies, going into a strange world about which they know nothing except for it being a extremly dangerous place has no business being characterised as "too trusting".
I DID make a Jaded write-in...
>>1509463Sorry but vote splitting would have done me little good and Paranoid served my purposes well enough.I did notice it.
>>1509459Sure about taking backstory into 'account' but you can still make her anything you want. I respectfully disagree that we don't have total free meta-choice. Based on the choices HM gave us, including write-in, I think that's exactly the purpose of making a character from scratch. Even if she ties into other stories, this is our chance to breathe and be free as players and choose whatever we would like her to be, to play.We can make up any internal reason for her being some particular way and tie it in with her backstory, I'm sure HM could write any reason for whatever we happened to choose and make it fit. You get what I mean? Anyhoo I'm typing fast and badly not making points very well so I'll just stop so I can finish up what I was doing. Sorry about that, I didn't mean my point as an argument, just as an encouragement. It's just rushed and poorly worded.
>>1509317>Jaded (-2 Hotbloodedness and the Muted Colors drawback)
>>1509482>Even if she ties into other storiesThat doesn't really matter to this, but looking at how she spoke and behaved sofar, making her suddenly too trusting right after she immediatly distrusted Lady Petal (a friendly looking tiny fairy) would be immensly jarring to me. Though arguably >>1509463is right and it fits Jaded better than paranoid too.
The irony of me being paranoid of the consequences of us being paranoid is amusing to me.Then again. I am just thinking of the extreme I think
>>1509502then vote for it
>>1509506Fuck it. Switching to>Jaded
>>1509502See you're worrying about how she's spoke and behaved so far in only a tiny handful of posts at the beginning. That's way to cautious for character creation - in my opinion. She can act almost anyway. Maybe she's being out of character because she's been thrown into a new situation! or etc. who knows right. You can make any reason up. I've been a GM for a loooong time and I know players tend to err way far on the side of caution. All I was saying was trying to encourage people to be free with their choices, that they didn't have to stick to 'what's been established' in just one or two posts in terms of personality. That the whole point of character creation is that the freedom is in YOUR hands right now and only right now. it was just an encouragement. Anyhoo I'm in speedy typing mode I've got to stop. Sorry.
>>1509317>>1509337changing>>1509511>then vote for itHonestly I rather have the slightly less fitting Paranoid than the, in my eyes, totally unfitting Naive.But fuck it, at least I can keep it right for the record.>>1509521>That's way to cautious for character creation - in my opinion. She can act almost anyway. Maybe she's being out of character because she's been thrown into a new situation! or etc. who knows right.This is not a blank-slate chargen.
>>1509511>Jaded (-2 Hotbloodedness and the Muted Colors drawback)
>>1509383And how much experience do you think she has in the ways of deception?How much effort would it take a slick operator to overcome her natural distrust?She simply hasn't been around enough people to have a broad enough view on the subject.I would posit that, because of her background, she is going to "naively" divide the world into the things she trusts and the things she doesn't rather than keeping everything relative and in perspective.
>>1509502If you wanted proof, note that HM put 'cowardly' as an option, that WE COULD CHOOSE as a flaw, despite bravery being our strength. So obviously we could have chose anything and HM probably doesn't give 2 craps about if it fits perfectly with what he's written so far. Do you HM? Do you care if players are free and have fun and pick anything they want during character creation? Regardless of if it fits what you've written so far in like 2 posts?
>>1509535I prefer jaded because his father is an asshole so she ended running away.
Paranoid:3Easily angered:3Naive: 3Overly curious: 1too competitive: 1Selfish: 1Jaded:5Updating and writing
>>1509535>And how much experience do you think she has in the ways of deception?As much as the average person. >How much effort would it take a slick operator to overcome her natural distrust?A lot, given that she has experienced a breach of trust by her own parents and knows the world to be a incredibly dangerous place.>>1509540>If you wanted proof, note that HM put 'cowardly' as an option, that WE COULD CHOOSE as a flaw, despite bravery being our strength.He did that because the options are a set of pre-made for all the possible character choices which he didn't bother to edit afterwards. Also our choice was determined, pretty sure.It doesn't prove anything.And again, it changes nothing about how this is a.)not blank slate chargen, and b. some things just don't fit.You can vote for whatever you want, but it'd still be incredibly jarring and unfitting for the character.
>>1509562 That's only your opinion and not fact. If HM didn't want it as an option he would have left it out. He clearly chose to give us complete freedom.
You guys did know that the drawback for jaded makes beneficial magic less effective on us right?
>>1509337Also, please describe the muted colors drawback for me
>>1509555Fair enough.By all means, this is a vote: pick your favorite.I just don't think trying to argue that one thing CAN'T be valid because there is no way it can make sense is both not productive and not feasible.I was just looking for clarification on cowardly, wasn't saying it can't be a thing.
>>1509560So... can animals wake up one day as monsters in this world? Because I got an idea for an Omake.
>>1509560I'm scared by what "muted colors" will mean, but at least we won't have that -2 Power, I'm hoping we become a magical artillery platform. I'm so glad that the potential for Carol and Mali bonding over killing their parents increases exponentially from this drawback though.
>>1509574>If HM didn't want it as an option he would have left it out. He clearly chose to give us complete freedom.Him allowing that doesn't change that it would contradict established points and oesn't change that being too trusting has no justification in the characters backstory or anything we know about her.You are absolutely free to make whatever wild choices you fancy for whatever, reason, I don't care, but some things have roots in what we know about the character, some things don't.
>>1509562If YOU choose to pick something because it fits in with something from the backstory or how she's acted in the past few posts. That's fine! And your choice. But it doesn't mean it 'has to be that way.' And why did you start arguing with me anyway? This is pointless. I already apologized for writing poorly. It's just cause I'm rush writing.
>>1509591>You are absolutely free to make whatever wild choices you fancy for whatever, reason, I don't care, but some things have roots in what we know about the character, some things don't.That was exactly my point. Your agree-arguing with me.
>>1509595>And why did you start arguing with me anyway?I just responded to your made statements as seemed appropriate to me.>But it doesn't mean it 'has to be that way.'At no point did I imply people can't or shouldn't choose something I don't like, I just explained why I find Naive to be a unfitting choice, mostly based on someone stating he finds it particularly fitting, which I disagreed with.>Your agree-arguing with me.No, I'm responding to you.
>>1509609I asked the guy who submitted it, I am waiting for his answer
>>1509617All right cool I think we're fine now. Apparently we agreed all along. Sorry I mistook your response as an argument.
>>1509622When he first submitted it , it was something about beneficial magic being less effective on us
>>1509622Ignore that then, I'm being stupid again, sorry.
>>1509617I did tell you I was rushed and apologized.
>>1509578I imagine she'd have a harder time to see things as magical or get excited about things.Maybe make her attacks and abilities have a more "mundane" aesthetic, as opposed to wild fantasy stuff like energy beams and riding brooms, its more ballistics and 'somehwat' realistic looking.
>>1509622Omake: Small Sheep In the Big CityThe flock was eaten by wild dogs, save for myself. That's what happens when most of the flock are idiots who can't stay quiet. I felt a bit guilty but I could not have hidden them because they would have made noise. Why do they have to roast my kin were I can smell them?Well not my kin kin, they were mere sheep I am... more. I have hands, I can stand on two feet. And I can use tools and speak human tongue. Why did I hang out with those idiots again? I can't remember.Anyway time to move on. Revenge? What's that? Can you eat it? Is it tasty?I am are just a sheep with hands, what could I do? I wait until the dumb dogs get drunk and fall asleep, then tie them up and set them on fire.Really dumb dogs! Even normal dogs know how to stand guard. Maybe is their human part? Humans can be dumber than normal sheep sometimes.Anyway, this is the start of my journey. Where will I go? I have no idea but I got a metal baseball bat taken from the wild dogs gang. And no clothes.I know humans care about that and the fact that I basically look like an eight year old human girl won't make things easier.****I got a job, the pay was clothes and no food but I can live on grass and flowers so is no big deal. I just have to guard a door. After two idiots learned how strong I am the job became easier. I don't know what's behind the door and I don't want to know, get it?
>>1509638And there is no problem with this, I don't really know why you feel the need to apologise, discussing with people is not a bad thing or something that involves ill-will.Different opinions or PoVs were exchanged. Thats a good thing.
>>1509648I apologised because I couldn't say what I wanted in the way I wanted and it came off as an argument. It's my fault anyway. I was finishing up my drawing crap. I'm glad you have no problem with the exchange and that it didn't negatively affect your view of me. I appreciate that, incase it did that's why I apologized.
>>1509562>As much as the average person.This, this right here is a meaningless statement that pretty much assures me that you are either trolling, failing to articulate yourself properly, or just not thinking about what you are saying.>A lot, given that she has experienced a breach of trust by her own parents and knows the world to be a incredibly dangerous place.>She distrusts her father completely.>She trusts the assertion that the world is a dangerous place from her only source of information on the outside world: her father.Pick one.Okay, I am getting too aggro about this. I apologize. Let me walk it back and put it in a way that heads off all of this unnecessary debate:The drawback was called TOO trusting. The implication there being that for those who HAVE earned her trust, which might indeed be a difficult thing to do, she is not experienced to recognize when that trust has been betrayed.Oh, and as for jaded, that seems like a pretty poor choice of words for an isolated farm girl. I don't think that word means what you think it means.
>>1509646Sheep are useless for everything except fluffy cuddles with their wool
>>1509661Just because we are in Brausburg, doesn't mean we absolutely need to devolve into shitstorms over character building choices, even if it has tradition.So, really, don't worry about it. Maybe it was my fault for insisting so strongly on my point.
>>1509667>The drawback was called TOO trusting. The implication there being that for those who HAVE earned her trust,Too trusting is usually used to say someone trusts too easily, not just too deeply (which would be deeply trusting).
>>1509646This is adorable in the best possible way, bravo.
>>1509668She is a monster sheep, she only looks weak and small to lower your guard. She is still small but can kick your to next week.
>>1509669It's all good. ---------HM when you said she lacked womanly charms during the physical description, were you referring to breast size? Or attractiveness level?
>>1509590Not really keen on the spoiler for me.In all honesty I kinda feel like the solution is to just leave him be. Especially if there is other family who are innocent.Or at the very least a part of me says Mali and Carol shouldn't. What the family does to right the wrongs of their new in laws...well thats on them.
>>1509679Thanks. I am still leaving open if she is a sheep turned into a monster or a human turned into monster sheep girl because is the first thread and I have no clue how monsters are created here.
>>1509693I kind of expect the word "homely" to be in use. She's a farm girl. So not the most attractive girl in the planet. But maybe a bit of a cute face at most.
>>1509667>This, this right here is a meaningless statementNo its not, it says she has as much experience being lied to as most people do. Its a fairly straightforward thing, its not like people in a large family do not lie to eachother on occassion.>>1509667>>She distrusts her father completely.>>She trusts the assertion that the world is a dangerous place from her only source of information on the outside world: her father.>Pick one.I don't have to, because she has herself asserted in-text this herself.>And I got a cruel reminder than my father wasn't entirely wrong about all the crap he spewed constantly about the world...all those lies.>he implication there being that for those who HAVE earned her trustIn combination with naivety, that was definitly not the implication. It was about trusting too fast.>Oh, and as for jaded, that seems like a pretty poor choice of words for an isolated farm girlI think you have w weird stereotypical conception of what a farmgirl means. Someone working on a farm her entire life has good reason to be jaded, especially with her exact circumstances. Jaded doesn't just mean desensitised by too many sensations.
>>1509678Alright, fine. That seems like an unusually specific interpretation, but not an unreasonable one.Anyway, I am over it. This debate bores me and is not constructive to the quest.As for jaded, what are we choosing to have that mean here?
>>1509697>SpoilerHeh, I hadn't thought of that. Imagine Mali and Carol having diner with the in-laws, and the conversation somehow turns to talking about everyone's worst memories. I think being turned into candy and then nuked is a far kinder fate that whatever the fuck Vera and (I'd like to think) Mizuki would subject them to.
Working, the pain in my arms and legs is nothing to the pain I'm feeling in my face, the bruises feel like they have reached my bones, but I'm still working. The taste of warm milk is so dull after a days work, when it used to be sweet. A helping hand just means they'll get yelled at for stopping their own chores and work to help me. Fighting back just makes the pain worse...and running away was dangerous, but whatever I found out here would be better than back home Sure all this stuff I've seen in here is amazing, little people trapped in boxes and lights that actually work. So many people in one place and strange monsters but...its strange how little these things that gave me nightmares don't scare me. And as excited as I get for all these new things I am seeing, people look at me strangely and call me a freak but, it doesn't hurt me. I got dulled to the pain from punishment and living all my life in fear has...eroded some of the wonder I feel. I can feel it. How quickly the fantastic becomes the mundane. I mean I'm already used to the fact magic exists and is used for basic stuff. Seeing what Sirens are really like was scary but its just a fact of life isn't it? And as exciting as things can be, they'll just turn mundane once the novelty wears off, like a doll you have to give up because you're too old.I frown as I come back, my eyes painfully dry as Pink Holiday lets go of me"That must've been hard for you I'm sorry" She says, playing around with a little locket around her neck "Some parts were" I say shrugging as I stand back up as she floats up to look me eye to eye "But what exactly are you hear to do? reminded me how shitty of a life I had or something? Why do you want to turn me into a magical girl anyways?""Well" She says crossing her arms, turning to inky black shadows again "You have potential for it, and you're our first choice, you have determination and aren't very sinful, in fact your worst trait is just realizing the world isn't as colorful as others think and getting inured to horrors and joys alike, the mind set of a worker who has little time for herself""Are you trying to make me feel like a mule?" I ask, pouting as she frowns"Sorry, sorry, I'm rambling, but the point is there are other monsters besides the ones you know, ones that don't care about this world or anything inside it besides to watch them scream and it burn" She explains calmly "I am talking about chaos, the force that wishes to make everything like it was before laws and order were born, to drag this world back to a barbaric time where only the strong survive""And I'm guessing you want me to stop it then" I yawn, already tired from my long day today "What makes you think I can?""Because, you have a good heart and aren't...ruined by your past" She says, grabbing my hands, handing me the necklace she was holding "You have potential to protect those who have no chance to defend themselves,cont>>1509693There's a better desc in the sheet
>>1509716>Mizuki would subject them toThat'd be kinda hypocritical, not that it would stop Mizuki, but I mean, she knows about it already.
>>1509710Please, enlighten me: what do you think jaded means in this context? It's apparently the one we are going with, so that seems relevant.
>>1509714I think Jaded about our former life, would fit. Had too much of the same.
>>1509720I meant something along the lines of "You've hurt one of the few people I care about, now I get to play with you". It's mostly just wishful thinking, I just want Mali's REAL family (eventually including Carol I hope) to like her enough to seek vengeance on her behalf.
>>1509719Can we have a link to the sheet?
>>1509719"And bring some order to this crazy world""Well I haven't seen any of that, did they just start causing trouble or something?" I ask as I hold the locket up to the moonlight, wait is this real gold "I mean it sounds like hard work but""You're used to it?" She says making me smile "Don't worry, I'll help you if you have any trouble, besides you can teach me as much as I can of the monsters that you know, like...how many types are there""No clue" I say shrugging as I glance back at her "And yes they've come back recently, and currently you're the only one who can have the power to try to stop them, but more will join you I'm sure' She says as I remember my sister and frown"Yeah but...I need to find my sister" I say slowly before I realize if they're causing a ruckus and want to burn this world just for laughs then she is probably in danger to then "But if I don't try and stop these...different monsters I might not be able to find her""Yeah....but hey don't give up hope left, it might be horrifying, but you'll have the fire power to deal with it" She says with a smile "I hope at least, and they're called chaos monsters, most folks can't see them until they're being attacked or hunted by one""...Maybe pops saw them?" I say dryly as I look at my locket and frown, trying to open it up "So how do I work this thing? it gives me power to protect others right? I really need that""Don't open it, that unlocks all your latent potential for a brief time, very dangerous" she says, pushing it to my chest "just think your happiest thought, the time that made all the work and pain worth it"- Starting Magic Water Earth Fire Air Darkness Light Nuclear  Noise Portals Lightning Life Death Metal Flowers Strings Poison Emotion Mirrors>>1509740When I'm done with it, which is soon just one more vote after this

>>1509755> NuclearI'm going nuclear, light up the town. The walls that hold me, Are melting down.>>1509761True, I was just thinking that it would be nice if the most close-knit family in existence accepted Mali enough to hurt the people who hurt her.
>>1509755>Mirrors I thought portals would be cool but then remembered we can turn into smoke and phase and etc. in other quests and thought maybe a change from transportation magic. Mirrors sounds pretty interesting and it's not overly dramatic. Holds a bit of mystery. Emotion also sounded cool but we don't seem like the manipulative type.
So. I think we know that the first team mate she gets has to be a genko girl right? It just makes sense.Think of the babysitting!
>>1509795We did Genki already with Charlotte. I'm actually more for another calm personality type, to make a subdued duo watching over the later more excitable companions.

>>1509755>MirrorsBecause mirror travel is awesome
Can't believe people like my write in so much
>>1509755> Airor> Noise
>>1509806I think we should use both songs honestly. Yours for serious moments and "I'm going to annihilate ever atom of your existence" fights, and mine for more fun, "this is awesome" moments while mowing through crowds and not giving a fuck.
>>1509837Hell yeah dude*2dudes high giving each other.gif
>>1509837This song works toohttps://youtube.com/watch?v=KXSUEU7ISfQ
>>1509755> MetalSo are we just putting the whole jaded thing in abeyance? Still not sure what its going to mean for the character.What is "Muted Colors"?
>>1509863Fuck yeah Fallout music. Great things will come of this quest.
>>1509865>Still not sure what its going to mean for the character.>, in fact your worst trait is just realizing the world isn't as colorful as others think and getting inured to horrors and joys alike, the mind set of a worker who has little time for herselfI feel this is a very clear description of what it means, in combination with the text bit before that.
I pull it back up, it has a strange symbol like a three bladed fan inside of a circle sitting inside of it. Its a nasty, unnatural shade of green and feels warm than the rest of the locket. And its glowing like...no not like fire, it feels off. But I like it, its pretty, certainly prettier than anything else I have. Like my old clothes that are a little too small, or this dirty dust covered room I've been renting. Or those damn fish"Alright" I say closing my eyes, as I think back to the little free time I had to try to learn to bake for my younger siblings, or to fix their toys that used to me mine, sure it isn't exciting but those were te times when I was actually the happiest"is it supposed to burn like this?""That's just the magic finding a spot in your soul" Pink says too matter of factly as I bite my lip, panicking as I feel words running through my head "Just suffer through it! and find your name! You need to yell your magical girl name or the locket doesn't let your magic out!""WHY?" I ask glancing back at her as green light swallows me up"BECAUSE ITS COOL!"-Weapon Halberd Rapier  Gladius and shield Your bare hands/ fists Wand Twin Hammers Cleaver Broom Axe+Guitar Tomahawk Executioner's sword Claws Dual Daggers Whip Sword Shotgun Recurve bow Two Handguns Oversized Hammer Kusarigama Tophat & Cane Ball & Chain<Custom>
Man am I so not interested in Nuclear magic.Maybe its just that I can't see creative ways to use it.Its just explosion. And slightly bigger/smaller versions. And maybe a bit of radiation.Hope the weapon choice is a bit more fun for me.
>>1509895> Your bare hands/ fistsI love MG fisting and I cannot lie
>>1509895> HalberdAnd then I was off to work Good Luck with the rest of Character creation HM
>>1509895> Your bare hands/ fistsOr> Tophat & CaneNo style or all style
>>1509895> Whip Sword>>1509903Don't worry anon, this is just our starting magic tree. We'll get a hell of a lot more as time goes on.
>>1509895>Duel spawn off shotguns
>>1509895Either> HalberdOr> Gladius and shieldI may not like Nuclear magic, but having eradiated weapons is at least something!That and the shield works with our natural traits and feelings so far.
>>1509903>Its just explosion. And slightly bigger/smaller versions. And maybe a bit of radiation.I would see it more as energy in general. It can be rockets, it can be boosting others, it can be fusing things. The magic types are pretty broad.And then we have the option of getting additional ones, and what other upgrades we can get in-theme.
>>1509895>Two gauntlet cannons
>>1509921Yeah but this is what we will be known for. And I just...I vehemently hated this choice when we first saw the list in YDFQ.Save punching for genki earth magic girl!
>>1509950Well, it's up to all of us to find weird and creative uses for this magic, as has been said. All that matters is how crazy you can make a walking talking nuclear reactor. The sky's the limit, and even then...
>>1509903I totally feel you anonI guess it boils down to whether or not Nuclear includes both Fusion and Fission in this context as to what we can do with it
>>1509895 Whip SwordBecause a nuclear whip sounds hilarious... and radioactive.
>>1509895> Gladius and shieldOr> Two HandgunsOr handgun and shield could be awesome too, maybe a shield that is a gun
>>1509979Powering stuffRadioactive fireRadiation lasers Obligatory explosionsWeakening enemiesMany possibilities
>>1509895> compound bowI can tell Lifa will never love us, and Holiday will have to work long hours to deal with our shit.
>>1509984well one of your finishers is"BURNING FISSION!
>>1509998And we have to run from the law because we leave places being radioactive.
>>1509994Maybe mutating the shit out of our enemies, making their own bodies eat them alive. I started with the thought of "we're going to explode ALL OF THE THINGS" (much like a certain hero of mine), but I like where this is going!
>>1510021We can probably absorb radiation for power, like in Infamous.
Also anyone else? we don't have a clear leader in this vote yet as currently Fists, halberd, Gladius/shield and whip sword are all tied at 2 votes
>>1509995Maybe our other magics will impress her one day. Seeing as other anons are trying to console me.Earth, Mirrors, Nature are all possible one day.
>>1510039Changing to Sword and shield
>mfwMagical girl representing and upholding the force of order in the universe wields one of the fundamental forces most closely associated with entropy and decay.
>>1510039I'm willing to change to whip or gladius+shield as needed
>>1510039 Whip Sword.
>>1510047I am with you man. But I am sure we will have good PR...
>>1510047I hope that jackass king is proud! I think all of our superiors beyond the Destructive Saviors are going to hate our guts and I love it.
>>1510047I know! It's perfect!
>>1510047>most closely associated with entropyEntropy is pretty much pure Order. Its effectively the tendency of all things to gravitate to a static and thus more orderly state.
>>1510066>>1510047Drawanon, if you have the time, draw a picture of the kind saying "I have made my choice" in front of an atomic explosion or something
>>1510079And then we get a rabbit girl that eats radiatio.
>>1510079And make Ron Paul the face in the pic!
>>1510042It would, but unless we stop using nuclear magic, which won't happen, Lifa will always be glaring at us, and possibly running DoS attacks on our websites.
>>1510051Well those two are currently tied at 3. Note that your choice of weapon will decided your costume and name here
>>1510073Entropy describes the measure of disorder in a system, even if you're right that entropic development ultimately leads to a more orderly state, its not what entropy strictly means.I'm not really seeing the special connection to nuclear force though.
>>1510079Yes you have you poor bastard, yes you have. Is it weird that I like the queen of Chaos and hate the king of Order? I've always like the fact that Order and Chaos aren't good and evil, even if Chaos is more directly corrupting. And now Natural magic has it's seat at the table, so the world will be even crazier than it was before. I freaking love this setting.
>>1510110>Is it weird that I like the queen of Chaos and hate the king of Order?We've seen her more "personal" so its natural to like someone more you have seen vulnerable and humane, while we only know the King of Order from like, two cutscenes and how Order overall kept pissing us off with selling lewd figurines.
>>1509578Muted colors was a reduction in how much temporary magical buffs affected us. We don't outright believe good things will happen to the point where it affects how magic affects us.
>>1510115Fuck I just realised Crimson Nightmare is using a whip sword, can I still change to sword and shield?
>>1510128It also reduces the effect on magic in general on us, right? And we are likely to be less naive and trusting due to being jaded.
>>1510142Sure mateAnd writing!
>>1510126Yep, say what you will about the Queen, she is adorable. Both from her backstory and when Crimson Dream made her even cuter through laser beams.
>>1510073Stahp!Stop dicking with me man, just stop it. I am on to you.
>>1510152Dude he rolled for it. Then whinned like a birch when he got a bad roll. And then you say sure?
>>1510146Eh, it could, but Jaded has the effect of 'Bad things happen. Magical bad things happen too. Good things don't have to happen, magical or not.' Less effective buffs, maybe less effective debuffs. Things sucking is a fact of life, though, so it's debateable. I leave that up to the QM.
>>1510165>Then whinned like a birchHow is asking if I can change it "whining like a bitch"?Just because I changed away from what you wanted?>>1510161Sorry man. Though, what did you want? You don't seem to have voted for anything.
>>1510169I thought that since we tend to see everything as mundane that also negates the bad guys magic, not just our own.
>>1510178Again, it's debateable.It depends on how HM wants to do things, because once you mute magic that much you start losing more benefits than you do maluses.
>>1510101Well, radioactivity for one thing, decay and the like.It's pretty safe to say that you get those as a bi-product of nuclear shenanigans.
>>1510152Is the shield one of the long rectangles or is it a small round circle?
>>1510175Because you rolled for it then changed it when the roll didn't end as you wanted.>>1510180Is just a -2 at most.
>>1510184Nah, I just realised later that I had reason to not want whip sword when CuA reminded me of Queen and Crimson Nightmare (who has one).Not really a big deal as I see it, I just forgot about Doras weapon.
>>1510191If you feel that strongly about whip sword, we can always upgrade our gladius into one at some point.Its not like its off the table forever.
>>1510189I expect the Sophitia style of sword and board. Agile and dependable.
>>1510200Is still being a birch because you still changed your mind after rolling for it.
>>1510200Yeah, I forgot she had one as well before I voted. Man that would have been weird when we go to fight her.
>>1510189I was imagining a circle, maybe just because "tech-shields" usually are buckler shaped.
>>1510211I don't think shields fit magical girls at all, they are supposed to parry or block attacks, not tank them.
>>1510212I kinda want the Roman centurion look though. Imagine a MG like that!
>>1510211We can probably have attacks that use the gladius as one too, just like Eli had her Crimson Hammer/Greatsword
>>1510220And congratulations, we are already flat, by using a shield and sword they will think we are a boy using a skirt.
>>1510229>they are supposed to parry or block attacksI'm confused, blocking or parrying is all you do with a shield.
>>1510231That'd be kinda cool actually.
>>1510239>they will think we are a boy using a skirtDon't worry, the magical GIRL part will make this pretty much impossible.
>>1510241You can do that with a whip too or just using a sword. Basically I hate the shield because I want our MG to avoid attacks as much as she can not try to block them with a shield.
>>1510250Look at this beauty!
>>1510280And who says they won't believe we are just a crossdressing boy with a magical weapon?
>>1510287>Basically I hate the shield because I want our MG to avoid attacks as much as she canBy experience thats not a lot actually, and Eli was Speed and Range magic focused.Getting hit is a thing that will happen anyway.Ultimately you can still lobby for speed focus and be a speedy shield user, just use it as weapon or for emergencies.>>1510300>And who says they won't believe we are just a crossdressing boy with a magical weapon?The fact that boys can't be magical girls.
That mushroom cloud with extra crappy here is a marginally better version for you to use HM. Also that portrayal of our character is not nailed down or anything.
>>1510290Thats a pretty nice cape, I hope we get one too. Or maybe our outfit upgrade could be advancing through different armour from footsoldier-like to centurion+.
>>1510239We're flat?Anyways I'm very okay with reverse trap magical girl.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktvTqknDobU-Tears begin to feel my eyes as the warmth from the weird locket merges with the feelings in my chest, making it feel like I've swallowed fire and can't let it out. The light becomes blinding as all the words yelling in my head stop and scream in unison and I join them, yelling as loud as I can despite where I am but if everyone else wants to be loud, well then so can!"ATOMIC LEGIONNAIRE, THE TIRELESS AND RADIOACTIVE PROTECTOR ORDER AND DEFENDER OF THE INNOCENT!" I Scream, as the green like suddenly sparks and catches fire.I gasp as it falls against me, me clothing melting and burning up into fumes as the floor under me chars black. The putrid green smoke turns into solid light and falls against my bare, nude body as I try to cover myself, blushing furiously.it forms a strange armor, dull gold and bronze, and then comes a skirt with some of the same metal, except its strangely green, the same color as my locket, and then comes a pair of gloves and heavy boots of the same shade. I hold my hands up, as a mask forms on my face along with a helmet making it a bit hard to breath a stuffy as my hair flows down above my back on the air.A short sword formed out of sharpened, rough metal and pieces of rusted scrap like I could find around the farm our outside in the alleyways.But its a real sword, and feels sturdy and incredibly sharp.And a shield shaped like a plate appears in my other hand, tied over my arm. I think it's a buckler but its a bit too big to be called one, and it looks like its from the tip of something hammered down. It has a green circle in the middle with the same symbol as my locket"Huh?" I say calmly as I look myself up and down "How'd it do that?"I glance around, and don't see Pink holiday anywhere"hey...pink? where'd you go? I still need help here, how do I tell these chaos monsters apart from the rest?" I ask feeling a bit nervous until I look at my feet, and see her covered in soot "Oh, sorry""its fine, its fine" She laughs, brushing her hat clean as she float back up "didn't expect it to be that violent, but It worked! which means you're ready to hunt down chaos and protect the innocent! how does it feel to be a hero?""The same honestly" I say shrugging "A little burning, tingly and....Excited but I don't feel any different""Well you will trust, me" She says nodding "So..how about you get some rest so you're in top shape to fight some monsters, and so you can teach me a bit about...well what sort of place this is and how natural monsters are, do they eat people""I don't think they do, usually?" I say confused as I tilt my head "But what's the point in waiting around if I'm the only one who can protect people from these things"cont>>1510124I love thisalso Character sheet https://pastebin.com/zh3cZW7G>>1510231>>1510250That will be one of your alternate....sets, like how Crimson dream had comet and shooting starYou start with Half life Centurion
>>1510334Still looks good. Will be interesting to contrast with Mali. Whenever it happens.
>>1510312And why would they believe we are a real magical girl if we look like a boy and magical weapons are not that rare?
>>1510290Are we gonna go full legionnaire, with shield, sword and javelin weapons?I'd be down with that.
>>1510347".....Well, I just thought you might need some time to rest, since you looked tired and being wide awake helps keep you sane with this sort of work" She says shrugging "besides I kind of wanted to teach you a bit before you dive into the fray"What do I do? go hunting for chaos practice swinging the sword try to use my magic 1d20+power Agree with her, and go to sleep ....wait, could you help me find my little sister, since you're magic? Alright, teach me, can't really work untrained Tch, I'll find trouble myself then write in
>>1510361Then we will really look like a boy.
>>1510352Just having a magic weapon doesn't give you anywhere near the magic powerlevel of a MG.Which is the highest average among all 5 factions.Not to mention our locket and all that.>>1510371> ....wait, could you help me find my little sister, since you're magic?> Alright, teach me, can't really work untrained
>>1510378I'm more than okay with handsome reverse trap magical girl.

>>1510371 practice swinging the sword ....wait, could you help me find my little sister, since you're magic? Alright, teach me, can't really work untrainedI am still skeptical about this. But I was skeptical about May. And now I love her. So I am sure it will work out.

I am honestly kind of looking forward to Maria's reaction on seeing Carol somehow for the first time.I wonder if she is going to go all rabid fangirl:"Oh my God, they ruined it with the reboot! A nuclear magical girl? What the hell is this crap? She looks like a Mad Max reject!"She meets Carol for the first time and just grabs her by the shoulders shouting "YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!"Just an amusing, albeit unlikely, possibility.
>>1510420We indeed look like a boy.
>>1510419I think he means Modos, since Comet and Shooting star were modos, not sets.Anyway, some upgrade options include basically transformations in which our costume changes to shift stats around, getting more speed for less defense and that sort of thing.Then there are also Sets, which are entirely new costumes with different specialties.Like our previous MC in this setting was a speedy spellcaster/bomber using a quarterstaff/broom as weapon, but could have gotten a heavily armoured set too.
>>1510347Love the battle outfit we transformed! Like a sailormoon meets knight kind of transformation, and then the rustic sword to call us back to our roots. Also pastebin didn't work for some reason. Page removed.
>>1510442So of we wanted a set that didn't use nuclear magic we could? Or is it always there? I am a bit lost.
>>1510433Unlikely? You do realize that as soon as we start breaking shit, the show comes back on. And Maria loved that old show, and she'll be able to recognize her home no matter the Order stooges edit it. I'll be surprised if she didn't send someone to track us down and bring us to her within the week.
>>1510371>Alright, teach me..>Practice swinging>Try to use magic>>>>Can you help me find my little sister?
>>1510442Well I used set to distinguish between other modos. Its still a modo, I just used a different word for it
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>1510371Forgot rollin, not that it matters at this point probably.
>>1510448We would have to learn a different magic and waste points to change our weapon. What happens if a MG things her magic is horrible abd rejects it?Like we are afraid of the dark and we get darkness magic, then what?
>>1510448https://pastebin.com/STyppT2LFor example here is the old MCs charsheet.And not quite.So basically a MGs gear consists of: Element (Nuclear), Costume (Half Life Centurion) and Weapon (Shield+Gladius).Your costume can be altered in two different ways (at least it used to be that way).There are modos, which are your current costume, except in different "stages". The had 3 Stages which increasingly emphasized its Strengths and Weaknesses (the old MCs made her faster and faster in exchange for becoming less armoured).Then there is a entire costume switch, so the old one had the option of a Heavy Armour costume too. And we would pribably have a Speed option, and possibly a magic option.As for our Element, there was the option before and likely will be again that under some circumstances we can acquire additional elements.
>>1510448We'll always have access to every type of magic we can use, barring outside interference. A new Modo would give us access to things and stat bonuses unique to it, like getting rocket powered armor or turning into a dragon-girl. As for how that combines with our magic, the possibilities are endless.
For the record, if the option for the Fusion power ever shows up.Don't take it!It only leads to tragedy amd feels.
>>1510491But it fits perfectly!
>>1510491Okay. Let's go for power drain instead.
>>1510500Yeah, trust me on this one: while no where near as bad as anon is making it out to be, things got really weird and kind of sad really fast with that specific power.
>>1510513Maybe HM changed how it works though.
>>1510475Okay. That makes me feel a little better.Was really dissapointed in no Mirror. It would be perfect with the future of Mali.That and Mirror clones/portal craziness.
>>1510521Nope, Monster Girl Legend is the cute and funny quest, this is the everything goes wrong quest!
>>1510521I doubt there's any way to avoid a similar problem to Elliot's with this power, no matter how you rework it. I mean, you're creating a person for minuets at a time only when you need to fight no mater what.
I'm still sad I missed the vote for magic type.With Machine we could have had summonable Aperture Science Turrets!
>>1510529In theory, if we find and beat up a powerful enough Creature of Chaos with Mirror affinity, we could get Mirror magic as one of our options.Our previous MCs girlfriend ended up having three different types of magic.
>>1510544We can get machine later and have nucleopunk robots! Like dieselpunk but better!
>>1510548G-good thing Mali's Mirror skills are demonic. Not Order/Chaos.
"Wait" I say after a second of thought, stabbing my sword into the floor boards as Pink Holiday watches me with her glowing eyes peeking out of the grim of her hat "Could you help me find my little sister, since you're magic?"She taps her chin with her claws, her pointed ears falling flat as she frowns and turns to shadows again with a sigh"Sorry, I can go look for her when I'm not helping you but, I can only tell when there's order or chaos magic around, don't know how to sense people, I'm sorry...Carol right?" She asks, guess her mind digging thing let her know my name to? kind of creepy isn't it? "But if you tell me what she looks like I can find her in no time I'm sure"I frown, feeling hope and all the joy this strange pink thing fading away like the tide, before I frown and steel myself.. and sigh"Well, two eyes pairs of eyes are better than one, She's....a short girl with short hair like mine, and a sort of tomboyish look, She'll probably be around sweets or something colorful, or hiding somewhere, she's easily scared' I say, already sick with worry as I give my sword a few swings and...haven't the people upstairs gotten a little quite.Hmm, this actually quite easy, guess I'm a natural! Step, swing, Block, stab, pivot, swing down, shield bash, stab down. Wow how do I know to fight like this? is the locket's magic doing this? I can feel all the moves I need to do to fight, even though I've never actually ever tried to fight anyone before. Well Besides stubborn mules."I'll keep my eyes open then" She says, spinning around, turning back to her cuter form "So, I take it you want some teaching then""Yeah, teach me, Not like I can work Untrained" I say, spinning around with my blade as I see her holding up a strange set of boxes covered in colorful pictures of girls dressed weirdly like I am...but its kind of cool looking, why is one dressed like her anyways "What are those?""Bluerays of Magical girl: the last order" She says "its easier to show than to explain"I stare at her blankly, dropping my arms to my sides"You don't know what that is do you?" She asks, slumping forward with a sigh as I nod "Man this feels like I've traveled backwards rather than forwards in time""HEY, what the hell was that bang? You blowing stuff up? toss it in the sea or forest not my hotel for Brausr's sake!" the landlord yells, smacking the door loudly What do I say?Sorry, it won't happen again, just slipped!....do you have a blueray player Why don't you have one? Can't you just tell me Well I was just given a locket by a little cute monster, and I kind of exploded What does it matter to you? Everyone was already making noise before <Pretend to be asleep> Er, lets take this somewhere else write in>>1510470Comedy relief
>>1510562>Sorry, it won't happen again, just slipped!>....do you have a blueray player> Why don't you have one?> Er, lets take this somewhere else
>>1510562Sorry, it won't happen again, just slipped!....do you have a blueray player Er, lets take this somewhere else
>>1510562>Sorry, it won't happen again, just slipped!>I don't suppose you have a magical blu-ray?
>>1510562>Sorry, it won't happen again, just slipped!> Er, lets take this somewhere else
>>1510561I'm not sure how it would work with Mali getting beaten up by Carol, but similar precedent with corrupted magical girls indicates she'd just punch the Chaos Time magic out of her and Mali would otherwise be as before, just without any chaos-stuff.
>>1510611But then that would free Tick Tock!
>>1510562>Sorry, it won't happen again, just slipped!>....do you have a blueray player> Er, lets take this somewhere else
>>1510562>....do you have a blueray player> Why don't you have one?> Can't you just tell me> Well I was just given a locket by a little cute monster, and I kind of exploded
>>1510623>Implying a certain gentleman isn't lurking just in case this actually happens.
>>1510562I thought our hair was down to our back. >....Yah, I'm really sorry, moving and all that, you know... you wouldn't happen to have a blu-ray player would you?
>>1510623Actually, since he 'is' the Chaos-stuff inside Mali, it would actually more likely turn him into a chaos orb as if she had beaten Tick Tock, to be made into a Contractor or used for upgrades (maybe even a wish) as normal.
>>1510635It is, she meant hair like mine as "blood red" not the length
>>1510611I think that would kill her. And aside from the dozens of reason it would never go that far to begin with, Carol would get her ass kicked really hard if she legitimately tried to hurt Mali or her family, even she thought it would help them. Mali has the power of a Chaos General and Greater Daemon of Lust, when she get's serious she's not someone to fuck with.
>>1510562>Sorry, it won't happen again, just slipped!>do you have a crystalline format of the show?> Why don't you have one?> Er, lets take this somewhere else
>>1510637Then we should give it to Hat Man so he forgives us. Or give it to our contractor and get order time magic?
>>1510637Let the record state that Tick Tock was significantly less dead than The Hatman led us to believe. He was also very persuasive.. . . Sorry Hatman.
>>1510653>I think that would kill her.Nah, it definitly 100% would not kill Mali. Mali is not a creature of Chaos, so losing her Chaos part would only moderatly hurt her. Same reason getting the chaos punched out of them didn't kill corrupted MGs,And while it was only a hypothetical, Magical Girls are pretty damn high on the foodchain of magical power, while she isn't anywhere near a match for Mali now, she definitly could become one.
>>1510676Mali could just find her sister and then the king loses.
>>1510664Once again, not possible. And Order time magic is something else entirely to what Mali has, we'd need to find it to get it. Tick Tock is dead, Mali has time magic, Hat Man is pissed at us, and Carol wouldn't try to hurt her once she saw that Mali is her sister.
And can I also just say that I was NOT ready for the sidetrack Mali got herself on when I went to go catch up on the last few threads.We went from road trip to get wolf aunt back to becoming a general of chaos.Hatman, I think we might have dicked you over just for throwing a distraction in the path of our quest we were already invested in. Just a theory, I wasn't participating at the time.
>>1510698Its more that the vote was super late and nobody was there until the end. It was poorly timed.That said, we'll repair the relationship with Hat Man soon enough.
>>1510684I don't really know what you are trying to say or how it relates to what I said there.Its not like Mali even would want the King to lose, she isn't really on the side of Chaos to begin with, she plays for another faction entirely.
>>1510676Fair enough. And eventually Carol will get strong, but not Mali level strong for a long time. She can stop time and turn anything into anything, there's not a lot that can stop that. But aside from Mali running away and not dealing with her past, the only way they'll fight is if someone is dumb enough to attack Malis daughters. After that she'll slaughter the whole MG team, in one sense or another. But no matter what, Mali isn't going to lose her magic. Too many horrible things could come about if she did.
"Sorry!" I shout to the door as it stops shaking "It won't happen again, just slipped""I don't think that'll" Holiday starts to say before the landlord responds with a confused grunt."You need to eat less if you're that heavy, we got noise complaints" He says, making me want to tell him abut MY noise complaints as he chuckles "Well, if whatever you're doing is dangerous, take it somewhere else, don't need an incident like last june"Last june? What happened last june? On second thought I don't think I'll ask"huh, how distopian" Holiday says calmly as I hear the big man walking away from the door. "Hey wait up, I don't suppose you have a blueray player do you?" I ask as his feet shuffles back around"Huh? Why? if you want one get one, Its hard enough making it play with magic, why not just by one of those crystal players? Heard they're cheap, just need some blood to run" He says angrily "Also, how the hell did you learn what those are?""I think we should take this somewhere else" I say quietly to holiday as she nods "but uh, a friend told me alright""Hmm, alright, well I don't see why I'd lend you mine" He says angrily as I sigh and turn to holiday who looks a little shocked"Do you guys actually use blood to work your technology?" She asks, covering her mouth as I shrug"only some of it" I say as I head towards the window and look down it...hmm, that is that big of a fall is it."That's still horrifying!" She yells at me as I sit in the windowsill.What do I do?' ask her why she knows less than I do about this world Ask the landlord if I could just...use his player Find one I could use Just take a crash course in chaos and order, as given by pink holiday Why is my locket shaking? Find a place to practice my magic Listen to her while I try to get some sleep write in
>>1510690I wonder how easy it is going to be for her to make the identification.For one thing, Mali's face is pretty different from how it looked as Alice. Sure the structure has some similarities, but she looks more mature and has flawless, magical skin now. Also, the rest of her body is so different that it isn't even worth getting into.Then there is the whole issue that Alice died. Depending on how things go for Carol, she might learn that she was fated to become a human sacrifice and not get the memo that her personality lives on, after a fashion, in Mali.
>>1510709But would be a good way to avoid fighting to start with. So should the sheep girl be actually be guarding the door to the evil monster girls changing room? Or just a school's girls changing room?
>>1510736OhI have plans for sheepie
>>1510706We will, but we're no going to power up a god with inscrutable motives. I've said it before, I like Hat Man but I don't trust him. It's up to him to change that, but we should give him every opportunity to do so.
>>1510722>Too many horrible things could come about if she did.Worst case is tick tock coming back, and while annoying he wasn't that big of a threat.I kinda want to see what Demon corrupted MGs are like.
>>1510732> ask her why she knows less than I do about this world Just take a crash course in chaos and order, as given by pink holiday Why is my locket shaking?
>>1510732 ask her why she knows less than I do about this world Just take a crash course in chaos and order, as given by pink holiday Why is my locket shaking
>>1510732> ask her why she knows less than I do about this world> Just take a crash course in chaos and order, as given by pink holiday
>>1510732 Find a place to practice my magic ask her why she knows less than I do about this world Find one I could use Just take a crash course in chaos and order, as given by pink holiday Why is my locket shaking?
>>1510742>It's up to him to change that,Hatman has constantly helped us over years and given us no reason to fistrust him.Stop trying to deflect from having unjustly fucked over a ally for petty shiny power gathering like a complete piece of shit, thats all it was. A power we never even needed at that.
>>1510732> ask her why she knows less than I do about this world> Find a place to practice my magic> Why is my locket shaking?>>1510734Fair enough, I though her face stayed mostly the same. And that'll mostly depend on how she finds Mali, and how Iris decides to deal with her when she shows up. After that it'll be a matter of convincing Mali to come out and talk, or to for Iris to kick Carol out of her castle.
>>1510732 ask her why she knows less than I do about this world> Just take a crash course in chaos and order, as given by pink holiday>>1510741You tend to adopt a lot of the characters of my omakes, don't ya?
>>1510765I like the ideas
>>1510732>Ask her why she knows less>Press the landlord if I could just... (remember we have determination!) >Why is my locket shaking?
>>1510732> ask her why she knows less than I do about this world>>1510653Pretty sure it has been stated that killing demons is normally not possible.They can get consumed by other demons and banished, but even completely destroying their physical form isn't enough I thought.
>>1510742>'ve said it before, I like Hat Man but I don't trust him. It's up to him to change thatYou're talking about a guy who has given us superpowers and gifts for years across dimensions, sometimes even for free, and never for anything that took us much to fulfill anyway.If THAT wasn't enough, what the hell do you expect him to do?
>>1510761Look, I've already argued about why I voted the way I did and I don't want to reopen old wounds on a fresh quest. There was no option there that didn't fuck over someone somewhere, and I chose the one that looked the least potentially terrible for everyone, and look where that got us.
>>1510781I thought those were naruto eyes for a second. Great work!
>>1510777Look, it's not about what he's given us, it's about what he hasn't. I don't want any one entity to have as much power as he was asking for if I can avoid it. I may be a paranoid fuck, but the possibility of him playing the long game to become God is far too great for my comfort.
>>1510774That depends on their power level, weak demons can easily be destroyed, they are too weak to revive and just return to chaos. Generals are way more sturdy I think? I mean you have to give the lazy bucks a reason to get stronger after all.
>>1510779You dif it for the time power and because you didn't give a shit about breaking wird and honor like the entitled tantrum throwing child you are.
>>1510779>>1510777I thought, given the circumstances, the choice players made was totally a in character and reasonable thing for MALI to do.Tick Tock made a strong case, and Hatman didn't tell give Mali, or the players for that matter, any idea what to expect.I for one am not begrudging the outcome or the choices made, just wondering how/why we got their in the first place.
>>1510779>There was no option there that didn't fuck over someone somewhereThere was, just giving Hatman the power and let him go on his merry way.>and I chose the one that looked the least potentially terrible for everyoneThats bullshit, man, don't come with that. You wanted the LMAO SO KEWL Time power, you even said it before the vote even happened, you were always going to take it because its all that mattered to you guys.Characters are irrelevant to you powergamers.>and look where that got us.Pissing off our oldest ally for the gain of a power we haven not needed once and only use for gimmicks.Powermongering I can somewhat understand, but trying to excuse it with "B-But consequences" when we knew EXACTLY what he wanted and how it was no skin off our back is just disgusting.
>>1510781I like itanyways, writing
>>1510810>it's about what he hasn'tSo he hasn't given you enough free blowjob and pudding?>>1510819>the choice players made was totally a in character and reasonable thing for MALI to doNo it wasn't, never before or after was Mali a word breaking dishonorable piece of shit that did everything for power.
>>1510732> ask her why she knows less than I do about this world> Just take a crash course in chaos and order, as given by pink holiday>>1510742Pretty sure the whole of existence will be a toy to him and enjoy it very much until he grows bored with it and puts it on his mantle. Meanwhile, all this happened in a blink of an eye.
>>1510812You sound like you are talking about chaos monsters, not demons.
Stop fighting over bullshit>>1510847yeah.
>>1510825I'm probably going to anime-ize her though because I can't picture her contractor, Holiday, as anything but. So they should match. Plus it's easier to draw haha
>>1510850>Stop fighting over bullshitNever, I''m still absolutely disgusted with what kind of vermin I share quests.The minmaxing I'm used to, but the excuses for breaking character were a new low.
>>1510850Yeah ita about time we drop this discussion.We will make it up to him. The end. Lets move on.
>>1510834She gave a dying, experimented on, person his final wishes. That is in character.And I just realized. When Tick Tock appeared when we stopped time, was he a stand?
>>1510847Demons don't come from chaos? They are kind of very chaotic. Devil are way more Order/Rule lawyering/plothole abuse.
>>1510863>She gave a dying, experimented on, person his final wishes. That is in character.He would have passed on anyway.
>>1510863>She gave a dying, experimented on, person his final wishes. That is in character.Breaking her word that she gave to Hatman was not in-character. Tick Tock was gonna die anyway, and the only question was where his power would go. Mali didn't need it, but she fucked over Hatman anyway literally just for luzly powers.Also, Tick Tock was a complete fucking monster, he deserved being tortured eternally in hell for what he did to Blue and the rest.
>>1510872>Demons don't come from chaos? They are kind of very chaotic.Chaos/Order are sperate factions from Hell/Heaven."Devils" as seperate thing don't exist here.
>>1510873>>1510877He didn't want to give the power to Hatman. Also the point of a dying wish is to have it be fulfilled after they die. Mali is a softie and fell for his charisma
>>1510823I don't know how to convince you that I wasn't power gaming, and I really don't want to have this argument again. And if by some stupidity Hat Man does get the Chaos time magic, you know what I want? I want you to be right. I will get on my knees and apologize to each and every one of you for my dickishness and stupidity, starting with Hat Man. I don't want to be right here, I don't even know what I want at this point. I won't say I made the right choice back there, but the other option was to terrifying for me to consider, and for that I apologize. But, I doubt you believe any of this, so I'm sorry for wasting your time. In any case, Magical Girls are back. Can we please stop arguing for now and just be happy about that for a little while?
>>1510877We never gave our word to him, all he did was dare us to do it. Also he did say that it would be fun, which it wasn't, so he broke his "word" as well.
>>1510834Ah yes, people are paying attention to you once more, and suddenly you switch back to your much more abrasive and incoherent personality.
Please guys. Cam we stop the arguments now. Its time for fun.We were supposes to get our fighting with over during character creation.
>>1510892Bullshit, anons circlejerked about the awesome time powers, it had nothing to do with Malis character, these excuses are pathetic as fuck.>He didn't want to give the power to HatmanAnd why would Mali care about the wishes of a sadistic monster like Tick Tock (who she didn't even know or had any reason to trust) over HATMAN? NONE.It was pure powergaming.>>1510895>I don't know how to convince you that I wasn't power gaming,You can't because thats what you did.The hissy fit you threw over Monstergirl Legend was telling enough if there had been ever any doubt.>>1510901>We never gave our word to himWe agreed to the offer he made, yes that is giving your word.>>1510904Switch? I never had any other stance on that shitfest.
>>1510901>Also he did say that it would be fun, which it wasn't, so he broke his "word" as well.The family trip was tons of fun though
>>1510884So angels can't also be kulled for real even if they are weak?
>>1510912I admit that I do like taking options that make us more powerful. But at the time, I thought it was in character and a wise choice. Now shut up before HM punishes us
>>1510928I don't think we ever checked. We killed angels before, but no way to know if they respawned.
>>1510912Mali doesn't know what you doShe doesn't like hat man and is creeped out by him.She didn't know what tick tock was. YOU are trying to use yourself as a basis for what Mali would've doneRemember, the only times she met hat man, he mostly ignored her and talked to people she couldn't see, aka you guys.Betrayal of some guy who comes around to freak you out and make little to no sense isn't out of character for her, it wasn't even betrayal, it was her scared of what from her eyes was an obsessed madman getting more power than fucking godSo stop fucking arguing so I can write jesus christ.
>>1510934>But at the time, I thought it was in character and a wise choice.Except for being completly out of character to be a mindless powermonger and being a absolutely retarded choice because some shitty time power we never needed nor will need doesn't add up against fucking over a consistent ally who had helped Mali more than once.
>>1510912Granted it was HM's fault in this, still, I regret thinking it was a 4 to 1 vote instead of 3 to 2 on giving it to hatman.>>1510921I didn't enjoy it, to much going back and forth for me followed by weeks of waiting.>>1510912>We agreed to the offer he made, yes that is giving your word.Sorry, I don't see it that way. I don't really care about the time magic though, we could have easily got it from change. And I'm also surprised caught wasn't thinking about that yuri knife he wanted.
This is going to be the new Broken Legs thing isn't it......
>>1510912That was a completely different situation and I am deeply ashamed I let myself act like that. Yes, I tend to over react about a great many things pertaining to these quests, but my arguments for what to do with Tick Tock came from fear and paranoia over a worst case scenario I didn't want to deal with. That whole shitshow in MGLQ came from rage and rage alone. The point I'm hoping to make is that I'd rather be wrong and exactly the type of asshole you think I am than be right about this situation. And if anything, Hat Man can see all of this. He knows what we're saying, and I'm sure the fact that everyone here want's to get back on his good side is helping the situation out, at least a little. But enough already, we've argued about this far too much for one night.
>>1510912I'm calling you out, again. You are straight trolling this thread. Everyone ignore this guy.Pretty sure this guy >>1510229is you samefagging too since he showed up after I put you on notice the first time.
>>1510944>YOU are trying to use yourself as a basis for what Mali would've doneNah, I go by Mali alone. What we have with Hatman makes it worse, but isn't a question of voting IC or OOC.Mali had been assisted by Hatman multiple times and had absolutely no reason to trust Tick Tock at all.>>1510944>Remember, the only times she met hat man, he mostly ignored her and talked to people she couldn't see, aka you guys.And gave her cool gifts and help.> it wasn't even betrayal, it was her scared of what from her eyes was an obsessed madman getting more power than fucking godBased on the words of some freaky monster she had never even met before.And yes, she HAD agreed with hatman to get it for him.I know you feel the need to defend whatever idiotic choices people make in the hopes of quelling the argument, but it doesn't work, because thgere is nothing remotly IC about that choice and it was pure powergaming circlejerk.
>>1510956>after I put you on notice the first time...Wat? Put me on notice?Are you high?And I'm supposed to be the guy I disagreed with? I think you need to take your meds anon.
>>1510949I mean on not giving it to hatman. Also I'm pretty sure he would not have seen Ameila getting it. Figured he would appreciate a fellow time traveler that he likes, and he did do alot of jumping to revive her.
>>1510952It doesn't have any resemblance to that situation at all.
SHUT THE FUCK UP! EVERYONE! SHUT THE FUCK UP. Arguing is doing nothing. It will not change anyone's opinions or cause any change until we are in a position to do so. All it is accomplishing is slowing down updates!
>>1510949>Granted it was HM's fault in thisHow the fuck was any of that HMs fault?
>>1510982I'm not sure why you think your comment will change that.
>>1510979I meant more as in someone is going to angrily post about it every few threads
>>1510955>Hat Man can see all of thisYou're still missing the point of it ruining MALIs character so fucking hard.
>>1511004Leg guy was way more consistent than this, this pretty much only comes up when prompted. Because it really was completly retarded.
>>1510996Because I am tired of the arguing and needed to vent
"alright, how come you know less about the world than I do? I've lived on a farm all my life with no one but my family" I say, glancing to her as she sits down on my shoulder and crosses her arms "you act like you know a lot, but you really don't do ya?""Well...I used to live her a long time ago as I've said, I've been asleep for awhile so this is all new to me" She says calmly as I shrug, yeah guess that makes sense I mean its just as strange and unbelievable as me suddenly getting armor and magic so I can't say she's lying can I? "I mean, I thought they'd teach about monsters in school now but you don't seem to know about them at all""School? I've never went to school" I say calmly "So can you just tell me about all this order and chaos business?""Yeah I suppose just, WAIT YOU NEVER WENT TO SCHOOL!?" She yells, pulling on my hair as I sigh and grab my locket, wondering how to turn back to normal, and why its suddenly shaking"Yeah, kind of hard to do when your parents are insane" I say calmly as I glance at her "So?""Alright, our team order wants to preserve this world and the things on it, keeping it nice and safe and peaceful, a sort of benevolent watcher" She says calmly "we've only recently got connected to it again, and me and my friends went to sleep, and woke up to find chaos has already reconnected as their is more chaos than order in the world now, and they want to...well wreck it and make more, they're chaotic and mostly insane and just as strong as you can be, and they can make you turn to the darkest parts of yourself by corrupting you with their magic and they have a lot more of girls like you from last time our two realms were connected to your world. So in short, currently you're the only warrior of order facing a force of chaos that we have no way of telling how large it is, but it is your duty to make...well more order, recruit or save some of the now ancient magical girls to our side, and push chaos back to at least an equilibrium""Wow, those are some really shitty odds huh?" I say, pulling at my mask "I mean I'm kind of outnumbered here aren't I?""You're taking this a lot better than I thought you would" She says dully as I laugh"I've had to deal with a rabbit infestation before, I can handle this" I say happily as she sighs "But I have on more question""Optimism is always good in the face of such great darkness and destruction, and what is that?" She asks as I hold my locket up to her"Why is this shaking?" I ask curiously as her eyes go wider"Oh that is...there's a chaos monster close by, several actually" she says putting her hands over her mouth "Thankfully they don't seem very strong but...Well that's still a horrible surprise"What do I do? learn a bit more go out and find one or more of them Shrug and go to sleep for now write in>>1510952At least he isn't saying betrayal is my fetish>>1510958the only gift he gave Mali was the spear>>1510982Exactly
>>1511023> go out and find one or more of them
>>1511023 Shrug and go to sleep for now"Not gonna get killed in the first day, and I am tired. Goodnight."
>>1511023> learn a bit more> go out and find one or more of themNo time like the present for some on the job training. Also, weird question I just though of for no real reason HM: Would Kimi qualify for a locket?
>>1511023> learn a bit more> go out and find one or more of themAdventure!
>>1511047Looks like everyone is suicidal today. I get it, what dooms this quest is the players.
>>1511023>the only gift he gave Mali was the spearAnd a favour point Which back then was a pretty big deal considering we had only one.
>>1511045Would you define her as pure? in anyway?
What if Iris got a locket?
>>1511023> learn a bit moreWhat kind of monsters we talking here?
>>1511070Fair enough, the idea of Kimi as a Magical Girl is just funny to me.
>>1511023> learn a bit more
>>1511075Definitly not pure enough.
>>1511075I was totally okay with ASQ and UMGQ being only tangentially related. Personally, I hope things never get that muddled where that becomes a thing. Maybe a one shot, though.
>>1511057Its only a few lesser monsters and considering we got pink holiday with usWe'll be fine
>>1511089But you know who IS pure enough? Alex. And you know who lives in the same city we're in right now? Alex. I think I smell our first recruit.
>>1511075In fact, I remember I said I will only be pacified over the Chaos/Hatman thing if Galina becomes a Magical girl, so I guess I need to bitch more, since she didn't
>>1511057Normally yes, but we have nuclear, which is a poor man's comet beam. But, now we get to see the repercussions of our power.
>>1511097>I was totally okay with ASQ and UMGQ being only tangentially related.They had a crossover.Technically multiple ones if you count Elis dads profession.
>>1511099Is our first day and she is a magical advisor, we are doomed.
>>1511112She IS still pure... if a little insane
>>1511111Quints of truth! Magical boy time!
>>1511023>When there's a rabbit infestation, you have to start catching rabbits, and fast! Let's get out there and deal with them..
>>1511127But anon, there are no magical buys... (Vera cackling in the distance)
>>1511111Alex is not a girl. Thus, not possible unless we get those Gilded Rose guys to make another fake locket.
>>1511127But we already look like a magical boy!
>>1511111He's too strong though. And right now chaos and order are too weak for Alex to want to give up his manhood for it.
"Oh, well lets go hunt some of them down, they're hurting people right now aren't they? this is my job now right?" I ask as I stand up and get ready to jump down...pretty sure I could survive the fall "Yes but, are you're sure you're ready for this?" She asks flying by my shoulder "I know its exciting and all but it is dangerous""Yeah, and? I've signed this contract, so I better keep up my end of the bargain" I say calmly "Don't need anyone getting hurt cause I was being lazy""You don't even know how to track them" She says, trying to tug me back inside as the cold sea air blows through my hair and sticks to my face...smelling of rotten fish "Also we have to get you to school! sign you up so you can be properly educated!""That can wait, teach me how to find them" I say happily as she sighs and grabs my locket "Fine, its seems there are....five different signatures, I'll lead you to them if you really ant to have a fight this early"Choose Warf (one chaos monster) Orphanage (1) Market place (1) Anime store? (2, hard)>>1511069Yes that then. But you have to remember to look at this from Mali's point of view. She has no where near the love for hat man as you guys do. also Since favor points are also not "Tangible" in universe, to her he just appeared and spouted some nonsense with jazz playing in the background before poofing away.>>1511097Yeah, that's more or less the plan. Small cross overs at most.
Now I'm wondering what happened to that secret entrance in Brausburg castle.
>>1511133Guess we'll get another Siegheild
>>1511146> Anime store? (2, hard)
>>1511146> Orphanage (1)Save the children!
>>1511146>She has no where near the love for hat man as you guys doClearly 'we' don't.Not even I do, I'm more pissed about ruining Malis character than who we betrayed specifically.
>>1511146> Orphanage (1)Think of the Children!
>>1511146>OrphanageLet's be super goodie
>>1511146 Orphanage (1)Gotta save defenseless orphans!Good night y'all!
>>1511134You don't need a fake locket for that. Say what you will about the king of Order, but he's quiet open with his fetishes. >>1511144Well, we don't need to tell him exactly what the locket would do in that regard... But otherwise yeah, he might need some more convincing. He does have a very strong sense of justice though.
>>1511146> Orphanage (1)
>>1511168G'night, I actually should go too.
>>1511146> Orphanage (1)>>1511152But with 5x the teasing because Vera.
>>1511171>You don't need a fake locket for that.You explicitly do. Boys can't becomeMGs with regular lockets, and Alex is pretty much already what guys in the order faction can be.>>1511146> Orphanage (1)
>>1511168>>1511178Good night guys hope you had fun.
>>1511146> Warf (one chaos monster)I'm pretty sure he also took his favor back when he reset reality. Otherwise we would have 4. 1 from glutton imp, 1 from hatman, 1 from Alith, 1 from lust glutton, 1 from Lifa, and 1 from Galia, minus 1 from help from big sis, and minus 1 from hatman.
Really good writing HM, thanks so for tonight's thread! I appreciate the hard work as always and have a great night questfriends!
>>1511203He didn't we burned it long before that.
>>1511191I remember explicitly in the old quest that Luke was a potential candidate for a locket, and that the locket would turn him into a girl. The other option war to let the Gilded Rose do weird science to him.
>>1511201You too CU!
>>1511203>1 from glutton imp, 1 from hatmanWe didn't get one from glutton imp. that one was from Hatman.
>>1511218>I remember explicitly in the old quest that Luke was a potential candidate for a locketThat was the fake one Elisabeths father had made.Luke was not a Hopeful
>>1511215How so? Anyways I hope we burn favor three on getting Marla's boyfriend back.>>1511223> leave her to fade back into demonic magic * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5QGkOGZubQ , besides favor* Would have voted to make her something if I wasn't tempted with a favor, though it would have made things boring if we had 4 favors.
>>1511246What thread are you talking about here? I mean the one in thread 4-
>>1511231OK, here's how I remember it going, I'd go back to the thread but I don't remember which one it was:>Eli and crew were discussing new members or something like that>Eli's dad mentions that he has a weird science thing that might be able to power a normie up to almost MG levels.>Charlie shows up, says he really doesn't like the idea and offers to just give Luke a locket>The choice boils down to: give Luke a locket or the weird science thingThat's how I remember it, it's been awhile so I could be very wrong.
Just had an idea for a monster girl . A kaiju sized golem, called either the Colossus or Talos
>>1511146>Yeah, that's more or less the plan. Small cross overs at most.Great, I hope that works out okay. On another note, would be interesting to see what "Bat Country" is like from a less elevated perspective E.G. what all the common folk experience.Will adventures be taking place mostly here? I kind of like the idea of this being the UMGQ formula turned on its head. You know, it takes place in a place with lots of real, very scary monsters, but occasionally chaos ones show up and annoy people, but it takes a magical girl to come an deal with them properly.
>>1511264The Colossus Of Talos (Ultra Hard)>What did they feed this darn turtle and is that a castle in her back?Basically you have to climb to her back, enter the castle and defeat EVERYTHING there. That weakens her enough to shrunk down and be defeated by five magical girls.
>>1511262The only science thing that could power up a normie to MG level was the artificial locket the Gilded Rose made.You'd have to show me that other thing because I know for sure Luke never goz on our radar as potential candidate and it contradicts the situation with Elis father and Hunter(?)
>>1511294I was thinking more for the monster girl quest but sure!
>>1511295I think this was a custom thing that Eli's dad made with Hunter, not official Gilded Rose tech. One of the things was that was untested and kind of a custom job, or something to that effect. And none of this stuff with Luke ever happened, Layla skullfucked the planet before any of that could come about.
>>1511295Divorced housewife gets the Artificial Locket and it explodes. "What the fuck why I look like I am ten years old again? And what's with this stupid princess like dress?
>>1511318>And none of this stuff with Luke ever happened, Layla skullfucked the planet before any of that could come about.More none of it happened because no one ever cared to spend time on upgrading a random LiterallyWho? NPC.
"Well lets see, there's a groping squid in the warf and Piper cat at a nearby orphanage" She says as she touches my locket and closes her eyes and...wait did she say orphanage? Oh hell no, not letting anymore kids get hurt while I have power to actually keep them safe "Oh and a Gluttonous maw in the...Huh?""Welp, I know where I'm going, can't let those kids get hurt, meet you at the Orphanage holiday! I have a cat to skin" I say furiously as I leap out of the hotel, nearly slamming into the building next door. But I grab a rusty pipe, and it snaps under my weight, and slowly droops down, snapping off the wall as Holiday winces.My feet touch the wet cobblestone, and I begin to run past lit up windows, hearing those weird boxes inside blaring as I run like a mad woman.I nearly step on a man sleeping in the gutter, getting a weird look as he sees a strangely dressed warrior woman one past him. I break into the street, keeping my sword down so I don't accidentally stab anyone. I slam into a fat man or maybe an ogre with my shield and keep running as he yells after me.My feet begin to glow with a green fog as I run along faster and longer than I ever though I could, burning the ground I step on as Holiday yells after me to wait up.-I skid to a stop"Finally found you" I pant, stabbing my sword into my ground to rest as I look up at the orphanage "Miss Lewi's home for lost children"I grin dumbly and tear my sword out of the ground to go and save the kids inside from whatever horrors wait for me there."You know, you're kind of bullheaded" Holiday groans as I start trying to figure out how to scale the wall, when the iron gate opens up.I turn, my locket raising up burning bright green. I narrow my eyes to make sure I'm seeing what I am. Its a big fat cat on two legs, around my height, with a flute in its far to human like hands, a top hat and a colorful suit. Its limbs look like a dolls, with ball joints.Behind it are clown looking puppets, pulling kids along by strings."Oh, how exciting, it seems I'm the first" it says calmly "the queen will be pleased! I came just for some toys, but who would've thought I'd find a magical....girl?"I get a little madder as I walk up to him not saying a word"Aha, I'm right!"

"Its not girly" I say coldly as I approach him, his three puppets flying around him as he plays a little tune on his flute, dancing from foot to foot as he watches me boredly. I spin my blade around and raise my shield as I see they have knives strapped to their hands, isn't that just lovely? Weren't those painted face scary enough?"Oh? It isn't? you humans are so strange! What is it then" He asks smugly as his puppets begin to speak in his voice"Terry?""Greenie?""Caesar salad?"I ignore them and glare at him as I raise my sword up at an angle perfect for stabbing down"Atomic legionnaire!" I yell loudly "but you won't have to remember it"I step forward and one of the puppets jumps in front of me"NOT SO FAST!" He yells, moving to slice me up like a piece of meat....But this thing is just made out of word right?I keep stabbing, splinters flying past my eyes as I push through it with all my strength, and hear the cat yowling in pain as the blade stabs into its stomach through its puppet, purple slime bleeding out onto its white fur."Y..you UPSTART" he yells, as he starts to play his flute angrily, didn't know that was possible.But he sputters and spits out more of that goo, wincing in pain as he tries to play with one hand to get the puppets to dislodge me and my sword.

"Guess that's how you work your magic huh?" I ask, smiling under my mask as I move my sword away, yanking his puppet out of the way and dragging the cat itself to the left."PIPER CAT! IT CAN'T FIGHT FOR ITSELF" A voice yells from my locket, sounding like a cruel and excited woman "FACE IT HEAD ON, BUT BEWARE ITS STRINGS!""SHUT IT" It yells, its face staining purple with its own blood as it tries to play"Guess I'm right!" I yell as I slam my shield into its face, hearing bone cracking against metal as I do it again, one, two, three and FOUR!It screams, teeth flying as my shield gets splattered with the purple stuff, sending it sprawling as I pull my blade from its chest and hold it out, a green glow burning off its "blood" into a nasty smelling steam.He falls on the black road, grabbing his gaping chest wound as his coat falls to the ground and becomes dusty"KILL" He yells, trying to get to run as he manages to play a small tune on his flute "HER" his puppets yell in his voice.I smack one with the flat of my blade, sending it back, as I block the claws off another one, as the knives of the last manage to rake over my shoulder. Pain burns through me, but I just bite my lip and fight through it, feeling my eyes burning with...something!The cat plays another tune, trying to dance as he runs, stones and bricks lifting themselves up in the air as start to feel murderous.

I stare up at the rubble flying at me and the three puppets flying back around to try and dive at me again to turn me into a bunch of bleeding ribbons. Hmm, he certainly has a flair for the dramatic doesn't her. I wiggle the fingers of my hand with the shield strapped to it and smirk slightly under my mask as I look up at all of the trash coming down at me. I sigh and watch them aproach, the puppets laughing wordlessly as their mouths open and close, clacking loudly as the bricks and stones swing down at me like clubs."DON'T THINK RUNNING WILL STOP ME!" I yell, smashing the puppets' faces with one solid smack of my shield, stepping under them as the rocks impact around me, one slamming into my leg, making me roar louder "DON'T THINK BURYING ME IN JUNK WILL EITHER!"I swing my arm with all my strength as he tries to make his puppets grab onto me and hold me back. But instead they flying back in a shower of splinters and gaudy clothing. "NYOoooooooh!" the piper cat screams as they slam into them, breaking like the dolls they are, limbs snapping as he gets buried under them and go sliding down the thankfully empty street....hope that isn't against the law.Hmm, well that should've killed him right? Yeah that should be enough, should make sure those kids are okay before anything else.I begin to turn and Holiday shouts "Look behind you". Sighing, I glance over my shoulder and see all three of those puppets merged together with that purple stuff holding it together, the broken form of the cat sitting in one of the shattered face, looking just as broken as his puppets"Don't think you can turn your back on me, Atomic legionnaire! You'll pay for you did! I'll make you my pretty little puppet! But I WON'T KILL YOU!, THAT WOULD BE TOO EASY FOR YOU!, I'LL MAKE YOU SEE THE PAIN YOUR BODY CAUSES!" He screams as I snarl and yell back"I WILL PROTECT THESE KID WITH MY LIFE, AND I AIN'T LETTING YOU RUN OR FIGHT AFTER THREATENING THEM!"

>>1511828Well thank you then. And I really like that one lyric from the song I keep quoting, so I figured Meltdown was slightly more thematic.
Hmm, you know that thing is made out of wood. And when I used the locket I burned the floor, and I burned whatever it has for blood off without even really meaning to. Now I might not have much of a proper education, but I know a few things at least. And I've always was the smartest of the family, so I'm pretty sure that wood burns, especially when its dry. So, unless the cat's magic has done something to those puppets and its own fur, I'm pretty sure he just gave me the start for a giant bon fire.Flipping my sword around, I watch as the massive puppet monster rushes at me, its six knife tipped hands dragging through the streets and over the walls, ripping them up like sheets of paper.My blade glows green, and starts to burn with a strange looking fire and begins to burn. Not missing a beat as it tries to pounce on me, I throw my sword like a spear in its chest as it begins to glow brighter and brighter."ATOMIC FIRE!" I yell as I hold my shield over my head, glancing around the side as I hunker down. The tip of my blade sinks into the Puppet suit's chest, and fire begins to spread on it as it sparks and the air around it waves around before the fire begins to grow small. Before there's suddenly a loud bang as it spreads and turns green the wooden body its feeding on burning and breaking apart like its decaying."NO NO, WAIT I WAS JOKING! DON'T KILL ME, I WAS GOING TO GIVE THE LITTLE ONE'S PRESENT, AND I MET PUPPET LIKE...LIKE I DON'T KNOW BUT DON'T KILL ME LIKE THIS, I'LL LEAVE, I'LL LEAVE AND I'LL NEVER COME BACK I SWEAR" The cat wails as its suit is slowly broken down and burned by the hungry flames and burning air around it, the air taking on a metallic smell as it begins to collapse, the painting peeling off before the tips of the fire even reach it.What do I do? let it burn Nam Ordinis *finishing move* BURNING FISSION*FM* ATOMIC...BOMB *FM* MEMORIAL STRIKE *FM* NUCLEAR BARRAGE *FM* Make sure the children aren't hurt ask if that was supposed to be hard make sure my shoulder isn't cut too badly write

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzDkwqCF7fs-I drop my shield and stand up, confidently swaggering up to the bonfire of stranges fires and smells. I feel the heat first, but it shrinks down to a nice comfortable warmth that settles in my bones as I walk closer to the mess. My teeth shake in my mouth as the air waves around me, but that starts as I reach up to grab my sword with both hands. The flames begin to get sucked into the glowing metal, steam flying out of its edge as it hisses violently, the wood around it melting into goo as I try to pull it out.The cat yowls as it tries to attack me one last time and I sigh and don't even bother looking up at it. Its already too burnt to move, and I'm about to finish this anyways."MEMORIAL STRIKE!" I yell as all the fire burns into my blade and I swing it right as it vanishes inside, steam flying out in a cloud as I slash through the puppet and the cat.There's a flash of light from the cut I left as I turn around. I wince, hearing that terrible scream as the light consumes the cat and his toys entirely, so I cover my eyes so I'm not blinded. When the light fades away, there's nothing left of him or his suit.All that's left in the street besides an image of what he used to be burnt into the ground, is a tiny tree, with white furry leaves on it, sprouting right where he was just standing."You'll behave now, yeah?" I say, running my hand over the leaves, a small apple sized orb made of glass with purple fog in it rolls out to the ground.Holiday appears and grabs it, looking up at me proudly"Wow, you're a natural at this, you didn't even look a little scared of something like that" She says happily, as I walk over to the gates where the kids are laying "hey, where are you going?""Making sure I didn't waste my time here" I say, kneeling down next to one of the kids, a little girl with blonde hair. I look her over, placing my hand on her shoulder as I sigh in relief.She's okay, not even bruised."How did you sleep through all that yelling?" I ask her as I stand back up and turn back to Pink holiday as she tosses me the orb "huh? why are you giving me this""Well, I'm guessing you want to hold onto it before we break it open" She says, appearing on my hand in a puff of smoke "there's a shard of order in there?""What?" I say lifting and shaking it up "What did that thing eat one of you friends or something""Nope, chaos begets order, too much order leads to chaos" she says shrugging "its like...you can't have light without their first being darkness""That makes sense" I say dully as I stuff the orb into my chestpiece "I guess, now how do I turn back to normal""Grab your locket and will it" she says as I do just that and sigh, stretching my now empty hands."Aaah" I groan, rubbing the cut on my shoulders "that couldn't have gone away""Well, I might be able to heal it...but it'll take awhile" Holiday says cheerfully as she flies over my head

>>1512110I know, but we're very behind. Luckily there happens to be a whole lot of newly born people who also need learning.
"So who's your boss?" I ask as I pick up two the kids as gently as I can and carry them back to the open door of the orphanage, where a an old woman is sleeping behind a counter, guess the piper must've used magic to put her to sleep? But why was she down here so late at night. I shrug and head back to pick up the other two kids to at least get them out of the cold. Guess real monsters like hurting kids huh? Poor little things? One of them is one of those snake tailed people, so I'm trying to get her to the warmest part of the room so she doesn't freeze, but by god is she heavy. Must be the tail."Oh, the king of order, he's the one one who made your locket and chose me to lead you saying...I'd enjoy it?" She says, fluttering behind me, trying to help by grabbing the little boy's hand "He also gives out wishes to girls who do good jobs at...our work""Well, he sounds like a nicer man than most I've met" I say, sadly, wincing from the pain still in my shoulder "Grr, there there little one's you're safe here...I hope at least""See, I knew you had a good heart, its always amazing how much violence can hide behind a smile and what are you doing?" Holiday asks as I start going through the book on the desk, flipping through pages of photos and names, looking for the one I came to this city to find.Alice Hiral. My frown deepens into a scowl as I flip through more and more pages, desperately looking for her. I begin turning them faster and faster and faster, just looking for her face until I reach the end of the page.I grip it, trying to see if there's another one stuck to the back. But there's nothing, nada. The paper begins to wilt and curl up, photos distorting and burning in random patches as "She isn't here!" I say, nearly yelling before I turn it from a shout to a hissing whisper as I toss the book away "I know she isn't as young as those kids, but she isn't old enough to be on her own yet, why isn't she here?""Maybe she's at a different one, pretty sure this town has more than one orphanage, and maybe she found a good Samaritan or two" Holiday says, trying to cheer me up as I stomp out of the orphanage "Hey wait for me! I'm supposed to watch you!"cont>>1512140monster/ former cult member school, yay!also if you ever fuse with someone heres a nice song for it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EEtGLLDhNY
>>1512180>and maybe she found a good Samaritan or twoHahahahahahahahahaha! Well, she did find love so I guess that counts.And now part of me wishes we chose Jaime for some reason... Oh well, that'll be for another day.
>>1512210In the most technical sense she's right. Its just that the two first samaritans she ran into were a bit less...well, good.Iris and the rest however...Also I just thought of one other thing. If this is a show being broadcast to the world and Maria watches it...Wonder what it will be like if Mali sees it before seeing Carol...
>>1512180>monster/ former cult member school, yay!I'm hoping the forest folk Mali made are there too.. and that it's in a forest.
>>1512239>"Who is this Mali?">"Our mom, I guess. And a wonderful person. She made us into who we are today, and we're so greatful for that!">"She seems like a nice person. Would have been nice if Alice and I had a mother like that.."
>>1512236Eh, they edit all of the minor details when they make the show I think, so anime Atomic Legionnaire will just look kind of similar to Carol and might be looking for her sister, but that's it I think.
>>1512236They don't use real names, the art style hides the details, and there's probably a few cases of abusive families, for her to catch on yet at this time

>>1512239>>1512180So what are schools like in Brausburg, currently?Brausburg was a kind of backwards and old fashioned place to begin with, and now after the cataclysm, I don't know what to expect.Old style/small town style grades all mixed into one big class? Just wondering.
>>1512281And maybe Iris keeps that one away from Mali while having a private chat about that with her dad. Assuming that's what the idiots who make the show will do.
>>1512180"Sorry" I murmur under my breath, closing the iron gate behind me as she flies through it "just a little upset...do you know when I'll get some help with this"She frowns and sighs as we start walking down the street"When you find it, or free some girls yourself, boss didn't say if he was sending other contractors, but if he is they're going other places for now I think" She says sadly as I turn to her and she answers my question without me saying it "because its more efficient to have more magical girls in other places""Oh" I say grumpily as I try to remember my way back to the hotel I've been staying at "Well that's lovely isn't it...I think I can manage though, I've been through worse""Really?" She asks flying up in front of my face "What?"I pause and shake my head "I don't want to talk about it" I say bluntly as she frowns and nods"I can understand" She says simply as she follows me along "So want to watch these when we get back to your home?""Why do you want me to watch those? are they to teach me how to fight those chaos monsters?" I ask, glancing back at her"No, its an old season of a show that you'll star in" She says happily as I frown and pout"When did this get set up? I don't remember being asked?" I say, frowning as she sighs"Sadly they don't do that, trust me I know from experience" She says patting me on the back with a hand of shadows the extends from the darkness of her coat while its closed up, turning her pitch black "Lets just hope they'll give you more respect in it""Every word you say scares me more than tha smug cat did at all" I say nervously as she grins widely"Oh I could show you scary" She cackles manically as we make our way back "Home"-"Are you trying to sleep!" She squeaks pulling on my head as I try to get some sleep as the sun rises up into the sky "Why aren't you excited about this! You've never seen anything like this!""I have, I've seen it just this night" I grumble as I put the pillow on my head "Now I have things to do in the morning, so please let me get some shut eye already""It isn't the same, this is entirely different than what you did, and entire different level!" She yells at me, as she sits down on my neck as I groan"But I can do all that stuff already!" I yell back at her, not even rolling over so my pillow doesn't muffle my voice "Why do I need to watch it""It'll teach you team work and tactics!" She huffs "besides, you can't do the comet beam, that requires a certain level of....well not caring about mindless destruction""But I could do something similar yeah?" I ask glancing at her "I just need to figure it out""Well...I guess but this is valuable knowlege here" She says angrily as I yawn"yeah and I watched five episodes of it already, I'll watch more in the morning" I mumble as she pouts and sighs"Fine, but I'll make sure of it" She says, turning of the light with a poof as I feel her weight vanish off my back cont
>>1512284One of the top three in the world. You get your choice of bare bones educaten, the insane amount of knowledge Layla insists on, or general training for whatever college course you plan to take.
>>1512289Hey, maybe the old forces of order don't have the resources or infrastructure set up to make an actual TV show anymore. They are just coming back into setting, after all.Furthermore, society kind of collapsed to an extent. Do as many households have TVs as they used to? Maybe the best way to reach as many people as possible (it was a for profit effort, remember?) would be to publish a manga or something.. . . of course that assumes that people can still read, but W/E. I'm just thinking out loud.
>>1512299"I won't let you forget, alright?""Okaaaay" I yawn, slowly drifting off to sleep-" I think she did well" the old king said with a wide grin as the other contractors sat in front of him, silent.-And we'll end hereI'ved archivedand will answer questionsMight want to run a thread before next week on tuesday. If I am, I'll be posting that I'm running on twitter, aight?>>1512284Oh you'll see
>>1512301If these guys are as immortal as I think they are, the same team of pervs and jackasses will be making the show. I can't tell you about production value, but the minute we let lose is the same time they do.
>>1512321Oh I don't doubt that the producers of the show still exist, just that the world might not have convenient TV networks and affiliates set up anymore for them to distribute it on.
>>1512314Will the show start some time in the next thread?
>>1512314Great thread as always HM, thanks for running. I'm so glad this is back! A lot of unexpected choices, it'll certainly keep things interesting. I really hope the Order king has enough sense to send Eli and Charlotte out together, it'll suck enough having to be split off from their other friends without each other, on top of everything else. I see a lot of potential here HM, and it's a beautiful thing. You're gonna be ok Mali, I promise.
>>1512350Or the one after that one>>1512359glad you enjoyed
>>1512335They showed the girls from an alternate universe in cybersuits, I'm pretty sure the infrastructure still exists.
>>1512314Thanks for Running HMStill not a fan of Nuclear Magic, But we will see how it goes, maybe it will grow on me
>>1512368So can you do a write up of the reaction of Carol watching the first season?
>>1512372Oh? Neat. When and where was that? I must have missed it.Wait . . . was that way back when they were channel surfing in the castle?
>>1512314Good show HM. I was skeptical about this character build, but I think its got some great potential in practice Carol still needs mirror magic at some pointTime to start thinking up some combos that join the party.>Verdant Earth: A scrappy tomboy who uses fists and has a penchant for flashy moves and an aversion to baths>Steel Aegis: A gentle soul who looks out for her friends with metal magic and defensive bulwarks. Tends to space out when not in combat>Vibrant Daylight: A Playful friend and a bit of a prankster. Ribbon Dancer extrodinare with light that shines and inspires. Quite the appetite on her.>Rippling Pool: Clumsy, and a little shy. Water magic and a bow and arrow are the tools of thia magical girls trade. Shame about the hydrophobia...That's all I got for now.
Also, have a weird thought I had before I head off to sleep:(In Nappas voice)You are now imagining Kenpachi Zaraki being given a locket. Have fun with that.I'm super tired in case it isn't obvious.
>>1512395Gimme a bit and I'll try to.>>1512400God how horrifying>>1512399oooh nice ideas
>>1512396Yeah, it was just a trailer, but the figurines were already being sold in the stores, and the costumers already seen enough of it.
>>1512412Verdant Soil(Earth doesn't quite work) and Vibrant Daylight are who I'd most love to see.Steel Aegis is there because Carol will go insane trying to herd those other two cats though.I figured the best plan was>Name>Personality>Weapon>Magic>Funny personality quirk.Its what makes Soil and Daylight work. Because imagine them and Carol in a room together.Going to have to figure out what Carol's will be. Being the straight man isn't enough.Also, since we crossed that bridge. Would Carol still be a magical girl if we didn't choose her? For reference to Mali's story.Also>I sense a creature of chaos in the castle>Rush to castle>See Mali just having a tea party>"Hello. We were just about to have cake and pie. Please feel free to stuff your face. If you prefer I can personally deliver it to you. Or at least on you.">"Mali, I like this dress. Please don't start your usual games today.">"B-but Iris!"
>>1512441Do you have a mg name for Amelia?
>>1512457Nah. Just generic concepts for MGs. Nothing catered to existing cast members.
>>1512465Aww. Guess I'll just bug HM the day she comes to visit someday.
>>1512412Carol's thoughts of the first five episodes-I don't get this? Where are all the monsters? are they going to show up later or something? Why is everything so empty and...clean? Is this a city of the rich or something...what have they been feeding that girl? She's huge! like a cow. Do normal people really eat enough that they can be that...size at that age? And why is her pajamas so loose? this doesn't make sense? Oh? is that her contractor? Huh she has a cool name and out fit, I wonder what she's going to fight.Did she just...did she just go to sleep...what-How many people got hurt with that beam of hers? She shot straight through the school! there's nothing left of the wolf! See, there's a girl trying to get revenge right now and...wait there's another monster, how dangerous was the past?! ....still, kind of jealous about the life this crimson dream had...but she seems like a nice big sister to.-Seriously, what is with her blowing everything up! she just ruined like five buildings with that move! she dealt more damage than that chaos girl, and why are they talking like that? they're both girls right? and why do they need to show their chests off so much, its embarrising.She...she survived that? but that...that beam destroyed everything before, how is this girl still!....she..she just hit her with the staff from that far up...is she...no she's still alive? OH she saved her! that's amazing, that's so cool! This twirl girl is kind of fun...were they going to kiss then-Wow, she really is a big sister, risking life or limb to save her little sis....I miss Alice....Wait...wait..wait, was...was holiday a person once? that girl looks just like her, it has to be holiday right? How'd she get so tiny, what happened to her...Yep that's holiday, wow she...actually doesn't seem to have changed much, thought she was going to be serious there for a second-What's a sleepover? Seems like fun.Hmm, man I'm jealous of them, the only friends I had were my siblings and that stubborn old mule and horse, still it seems like they're having fun together. Wonder If I'll be able to do that some day. But when's there going to be....are those ghosts? well that's...creepy but..but at least ghosts don't exist right? right?-...how does that lady have magic? that doesn't make...is she a monster? But she looks human? Is she a magical girl to? I don't get it?! how does she have magic and isn't a magical girl like me! what the hell is that! it doesn't make any sense! and is that a giant mole? god I hate moles, I hope I find one of those, I really hate moles they eat all the crops and make holes for horses to break their legs in...Oh wow, that's actually pretty impressive! Huh, no wonder Amanda wanted me to watch these, her and her friends are pretty strong aren't they....hope I can find a few soon. >>1512441Eventually she would've been
>>1512509I thought you were going to post more, sorry. Anyways I liked it. I'm betting Lifa will just leave a few negative comments on how it's glorifying the the old energy that was used the day she sees this show, but will she start getting more malicious once she finds out it's real?
>>1512627>Angry plant daughter noises.And I didn't feel quite up to rereading the first five/ six threads, since I just realized how much better I've gotten as a writer since then .
Man when Carol and Mali see each other again it's going to one hell of a reunion
>>1512635Just don't forget to stop "mummering" and murmur instead. But yes, you've gotten better at storytelling now, I commend you good sir.
>>1512700I've been trying my best with that
>>1512700Also, thanks. It actually surprises me how different my writings back then were from now. Like it actually makes me feel giddy
>>1512706Good then. >>1512711Especially with young monster quest, when you really had no idea of what exactly you were doing with ras in the shop she was born under from.By the way, would have the witches helped if Eli had a chance to ask them about what reaper said? Would things have been if Maria stayed as herself and told Layla that she should look for dream to help Jasmine? Also, when will see witches besides Layla, Kimberly, or Iris?
>>1512740As well as fairies, since the humans in the forest that the beast ate and the boat crew seemed to be wary of them.
>>1512740Yes. Oh yeah that would change up some thingsand hopefully soon>>1512753Sometime, they are rather tricksy
>>1512769> and hopefully soonI'm guessing Ms. Weaver is going to be our night teacher at the school.
I've remembered Alex's scent senses were bad monster wise. So with Carol looking like a boy, he could falsely assume that magical boys are a thing.
>>1512399>Shining Reflection: A prideful but graceful and noble beauty, she uses mirrors to attack from unexpected angles and support allies. Now if she would stop looking at her reflection so much...>Lavender Basilisk: Distant, quiet and awkward, but observant and insightful. She uses poison and a monster form to fight her foes.
>>1512889Nice I like these girls
>>1512890>Atomic Legionnaire>Verdant Earth>Steel Aegis>Vibrant Daylight>Rippling Pool>Shining Reflection>Lavender BasiliskNow that's a magical girl team. Imagine them all in a room together and the shenanigans that would ensue.
>>1512890>Lazy Cat: She does work because they force her to and she honestly just wants to go back to sleep. She has the power to make others lazy and sleepy but only works in humans and magical girls since she is before the new age of monsters. She honesty doesn't like kidnapping girls for the experimental Dark Magical Girl Project since she might be a former pet of a nice girl.****Omake: Cat and Sheep****"But what can I do? Running away and trying to get another work would be too much effort. And then both Chaos and Order would be hunting me! I just want to sleep eighteen hours a day, is not much, right? That still leaves six hours a day to do other things!"The sheep girl glares at the lazy cat girl who is wearing barely covering sleepwear. She is a cat, why is she as big as a cow?"I don't care, are you gonna enter the door or not?" "Hug first!" The lazy cat hugs Sheepie then falls asleep on the spot, sheep pillows are the best!Sheepie groans "Just two weeks more, just two weeks more..."
>>1512890>Devoured Knowledge: A girl of unassuming stature and personality who sold her identity for power and knowledge. Uses massive maws and cataclysmic fire magic to annihilate her foes. No we have no idea how she was pure enough to use that stolen locket either... Now to quench the thirst of her patron she eternally wanders the world searching for even the tiniest scraps of knowledge.
so... I completely missed this due to work...well I'll contribute by making a suggestion on a more subtle use of nuclear magic:theres a branch of medicine known as nuclear medicine that basically involves injecting radioactive isotopes into patients to act as a highlighter/tracking method of the patients internal systems, so potentially with nuclear magic we could stab something and inject it with a diagnostic isotope thus giving us more info on the beasty or an increased crit rate or something since the flow of the isotope would help pinpoint things like the heart or other important structures.
>>1513694Dude, that is a fucking awesome Idea. Any ideas on the name for this attack>>1513200Also cute>>1513310Terrifying but I like it
>>1514856I am not the original guy who suggested it. But, how about Iradiated Radar?
>>1514954Never mind. Even better name.X-Radar
>>1514961>>1514961>>1514954Its got style, I like it. X-Radar
