Having a famous parent can be a real bother, especially if they're an evil ruler of the land. You'd think being the son of the wicked queen of the borderlands wouldn't be so bad, but all your life she's coddled you and prevented you from achieving your own greatness! Finally though after many years and on the cusp of adulthood, you took matters into your own hands and escaped her loving clutches! Absconding with some valuables and servants, you fled from the lands in control of your mother to strike out and make something of yourself, to stand on your own two feet.And so after some month's of freedom you've come to Dowen Belda, the domain of the elves, particularly the forested region. In a snap decision though, rather than the haughty pointed ears, you decided instead to find refuge among some orcs. They seem a good, strong bunch to throw your lot in with, and perhaps eventually control. For now though they've got their own problems, which in helping them with, you may gain their loyalty.
>>1571758Back so soon op?
>>1571758Here is a link to the previous thread!>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1531340/
>>1571758Yo OP Sup
>>1571762>>1571767Welcome back!So last it was, you led the group of orcs and gobs relying on you to another group of the same sorts of people, and after clearing up some initial... misunderstandings, you and yours were welcomed in and the two groups have come to cohabit. It's been about a month of rigorous work, but both your lot and those of the forested town you came to have been striving to expand the settlement to provide housing for the increased population and to lengthen the wall around this new expansion. One by one your people have been settled in new houses their own, and in the last couple of days the wall has been completed. There's still identity concerns and other such differences between the two groups, but for now you're all getting along decently well and living together as one whole settlement.As for you in particular, you met the leader of this tribe, an older orc matron named Arba and hit it off. In working together for the good of both your peoples, you ended up becoming a guest in her home and forming a relationship even. You're not about to get married or anything, but you get along well and keep each other company both in and out of the home.And so after this time spent with the two groups working together, Arba thinks the settlement is ready to start taking full actions towards its progress and stability.>How would you like to proceed?
>>1571788Is the wall already built? If so is it sturdy enough?
>>1571795Nvm that first question I didn't read properly The deal is if it's strong enough?
>>1571795>>1571800It's not to the same standards as the walls the former human inhabitants had built, but over time those have fallen to some disrepair anyway. This new expansion is fully orcish in style and structure, and while not as neat or finely made, it's more than sturdy enough to keep out most enemies. And of course worst come to worst, your group can always retreat inside the actual main walls of the town.
>>1571788Scout the surrounding areas to find arable land and routes. Also scout any possible threats and devise defensive measures. And fortify the walls with offensive structures like ballista.
>>1571807Okay Now we can venture out to the other group Lets take some good fighters from her side and ours so we don't leave either lacking too muchThen set out with Arba and Rav, our friends can stay And the mercenaries can follow us if they want
>>1571813To start things off you can scout around the forested town. Make a roll, d100, to see what your scouts can turn up. From there you can act accordingly.>>1571817Ah well, the mercenaries, that's a problem. The fellow in charge of them, the vampire out to capture you, has decided enough is enough. Especially now that your group of orcs are safe and sound in the town. He's been getting impatient waiting for you come along peacefully, and you expect now with the wall complete he will demand your cooperation. So now would be a good time to decide if you really do want to keep your word and go quietly, or if you want to make a stand. Likely with the help of the town. With their help, you will very soundly outnumber the mercenaries, however you can't expect a conflict without bloodshed on both sides.
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>1571828Can we negotiate with him? Just a bit more time?
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>1571835Support roll
>>1571835>>1571839Is that a roll for negociation? You can with an attempt like that, but you'll have to present a case to him, to not try and capture you now. In his eyes, the longer he leaves it the stronger you (or at least those you surround yourself with) become, so he will want to know what you plan to do with this added time.
>>1571847That was for scouting lolBut if we can use it for the attack instead of negotiation
>>1571851I don't know about that but it's an 80 so it's worth a shot
Can't stay up anymore, Good Night >>1571851>>1571847>>1571813We better win what fight anon
>>1571851>>1571874>>1571887Oh the scouting right. Well if you want to use it for the attack though you definitely can. Just detail how you want to go about it. If you want to lure them into an ambush, stage a sneak attack, or separate them out? You've got over 100 orcs and many more goblins and others vs their 51 mercenaries. Now true the are seasoned fighters of varying talents, but you also have many advantages, chief among them the foreknowledge of the hostilities to come.
>>1572004Uh, what do we know about her wife? Where is she? Who or what is preventing her from escaping or him from rescuing her?Because we have got, you know a ring of invisivility (or was it 'ring of not detection' or something like that? I can't remember.).Also, how common, if it exist at all, is theletransportation magic?Because I think he would be willing to leave the queen and join us if we helped him rescue his wife, especially with that 80.
>>1572004Sneak attackOkay, evacuate the outermost sector inwards, we'll have our Gobs use whatever ranged weapons we have and start raining down on them when the Vamp is close, then we open our door to let the fighting happen inside, once inside we'll continue the distance assault while our fighters engage in melee, we'll have the positioning, base knowledge and high ground advantage The goblins should focus on magic users and ranged people and should stay away from melee combat Our friends, Zela, Arba and Rav are going to sit out the fighting inside Arba's houseAnd we'll also fight from range with lethal and nonlethal spells
>>1572077I doubt it, if he can't get to her then we probably don't stand a chance either
>>1572213>I doubt it, if he can't get to her then we probably don't stand a chance eitherWell, we have a ring that avoids detection and a sword that can kill ghosts, so... naybe he only needs some help to rescue her.Or maybe just somewhere safe to go, after (if) he desides to obtain information by interrogating somebody important to the queen.
>>1572272Give him important items in hopes he just leaves? Are you sure about that?
>>1572289No, I mwant that we can help him since we can do things that he probably can't because of this items.Did he have a time limit to get us to the queen? Is he with somebody else that works for the queen?
>>1572302The thing isI don't know if that 80 will be enough, it's enough for negotiating but can we convince him? Wanna roll for convincing?
>>1572321Well, I just asume that we should hve asked him about his wife on all of out time 'together'.Also, he was suppoced to tell us mlre about our mother's enemy, right?
>>1572077You only know what he told you, since when Nadira tried to scry on the vampire's wife, she suffered a beyonder attack. What the vampire himself told you, was that his wife was imprisoned and being kept that way by the evil queen. Knowing your mother, she's probably handed that actual duty over to one of her servants, but needless to say it's probably a very secure imprisonment.If you want to try and rescue his wife you can, but it's going to take going to the evil queen's stronghold, back home to where you came from. And it will most certainly take more than one 80 roll. Though to be fair, some players did consider returning or being captured, just to try and escape again later. Just a possibility.>>1572167So you want to lure them to the town, possibly inside, then sneak attack them? That can work, just pitch a response to give to the vampire and the mercenaries to lure them in.>>1572272It's true you do have some great magic items and such, but you know from personal experience that the evil queen surrounded herself with all sorts of accomplished and powerful folks, and defended her stronghold as such. To prevent things like but not limited to, dragon attack, assassin infiltration, enemies teleporting in, etc...It's not impossible, considering you know the stronghold better than anyone, and even secret passages in and out, but it's no cakewalk either.>>1572302It didn't sound like he had a time limit to return you to the queen, but he probably won't get his wife back until you're returned so he'd obviously want to complete the job as fast as possible. And from what you understand, he's working on his own. That's not to say he's the only agent of the queen or that he doesn't know of others, just that he's one who managed to track and find you after an initial combat in the borderlands.
>>1572356Hmm, how much does the queen apreciate her followers?I mean, if we captured a lot of the other agents that cone after us, could we use them as hostages in exchange for the vampire's wife? Just an idea.
>>1572356Hey Vamp, I'm ready to go just let me say goodbye to my friends, you can come inside meanwhile That's when everyone evacuates and the fighters get ready before opening the door
>>1572361She takes care of her own, and loyalty well, but it does vary depending on the individual or creature. Like for example, you personally know she doesn't like vampires. Certainly though, bargaining hostages is something which could work. Seems like a lot of work for just a one vampire though, it's not like you'd lose sleep over suffering of this guy or his wife.
>>1572372>Seems like a lot of work for just a one vampire though, it's not like you'd lose sleep over suffering of this guy or his wife.It is, of course, also part of a plot to deal with the other agents, and maybe even have them join our side too!Also, I don't know if this was already answered, but was him the man that met Eula at the revelry?
>>1572381I think so >>1572372Supporting >>1572364
>>1572381>deal with other agentsCan't argue with that! And no, this wasn't the same person Eula met.>>1572364So you you give an excuse to the vampire and his mercenaries that you're ready to leave but they're free to come and stock up on supplies with the orcs before leaving. Which is a pretty appealing offer, they've been camping out for over a month now and had to forage and hunt to get by. Having had anyone outside evacuate within the stone walls then, once the gate is open and the enemy group enters inside, the trap is sprung! Between goblins with many crossbows, trolls lobbing great rocks, and orcs charging in for combat, you catch the enemies off guard. The initial attack is quite devestating on them and the mercenaries struggle to organize and group up, but they're having a hard time.Naturally you take it upon yourself to maybe blast a few with the magic you know, or even try to maybe counterspell any of the casters the enemy might have. However you notice after some difficult fighting, the vampire flees further into town. A worrisome prospect, and you're met with the dilemma of whether to stay and continue to assist magically, or leave after the vampire in case he does something risky.
>>1572396>Don't let up on them, do not give them a chance to organize themselves, Gobs and Trolls focus on the casters, Orcs keep doing what you're doing. They're doing fine without us, we can follow him Unless he's within firing distance? Can we fire a spell that travels fast enough to hit him if he's still within Range?
>>1572414You can probably blast him with a spell before he gets out of range and sight, but he's a vampire so just one spell probably isn't going to do it.
>>1572417Run after him while casting two missiles, or beams preferably, at his legs One or two rolls?
>>1572417Can we catch him with a spell or something? Shot at him with our crossbow? Are we wearing our armor?
>>1572396>>1572436*Shigh* And thus we loss a possible ally, source of infromation, and anger mom even more...Well, on the last part, mom doesn't need to realize if we don't let anybody tell that we killed him.Also, if we shot at him, can we stagger him enough for some orcs to rush at him?
Rolled 5, 25 = 30 (2d100)>>1572431
Rolled 65, 49 = 114 (2d100)>>1572466
Rolled 16, 89 = 105 (2d100)>>1572466I guess I'll roll
>>1572431>>1572436The missiles can work but they don't do much damage or have such a great effect. And no you weren't armored otherwise that would be obviously suspicious. But then, you're not in any risk in this situation, your safety is the determining factor for these enemies.>>1572444>>1572467You sling some missile spells his way, and manage to hit him well enough, even if the effect isn't so great. He's aware that you're following him now though, and quickly ducks for cover inside some random building which was probably a workshop or something like that. There's yelling and screaming inside, as you and others try to rush over, and you find the vampire having tried to escape but been blocked by an orc woman protecting her child. He's clearly desperate and dangerous, but at the moment cornered.
>>1572481OkayLets talk First let the woman and kid outside and let maybe two orcs inWe only want to talk, we don't want kill him, let him calm down
>>1572495Like, he has no other option now? I am fine with that, since we already kind of threw pasifist!diplomasy out of the window.
>>1572495>>1572502First and foremost you get anyone at risk out of there, then surround the guy with some able-bodied fighters. You're not sure what he's capable of but it should make him think twice.You offer to talk, but then what's there to talk about he asks? You've already shown to be a liar and willing to betray him. And at the end of the day, his situation has only one outcome; either he captures you and takes you back, or he dies trying.
>>1572542Surrender. You can't take me with you nor do you want to die, but I am not about to go back to the queen.This needs a dice?
>>1572583Also, if he denies, can we capture him?
>>1572583>>1572592You can roll a dice, but if you say you're not going back, then he doesn't understand what else is there to discuss.In which case then, yes you may well want to try and capture him.
>>1572618Is everybody ok with capturing him instead of capturing him?What kind of vampire is him?Just to know how far we can go, because on a warhammer quest they were kind of inmortal (are they like that in the original Warhammer universe, pheraps?), so you could turn them to ashes and store them in a cave, and if given a chance, they would regenerate.
>>1572637>Is everybody ok with capturing him instead of capturing him?lol*Is everybody ok with capturing him instead of killing him?
>>1572637You can't be certain since you're not a vampire and only know what you do from talking to and observing him, but he seems like a standard run of the mill vampire. So, hard to kill, but if you do it right then he'll definitely die.
>>1572654Hmm, do we have binding/restrictive magic or hexes? Something to prevent him from using magic?
>>1572661Nadira probably does, and within the settlement there's probably a few shamans and the like whom could do something like that. However even without magic, vampires have some natural abilities which can't be blocked just by anti-magical means.
>>1572664Lets try to bargain We don't want to kill him because he has a wife to come back to and we don't want to do something that'll get his wife killed And we also can't allow him to leave and tell mom, so, we'll keep him here now that he doesn't have the force to take us
>>1572704Well that's not really a bargain, that's you just forcibly keeping him prisoner. But yes, if you want to you can do that. You can expect resistance from him though, trying to capture and hold him. After all, he is armed and cornered.
>>1572713>Oh come the fuck on, put those weapons down >I don't want to kill or hurt you >Just come willingly and if you agree to stop trying to kidnap us we'll not toss you in a cell
>>1572718>And may even help you get your wife back.
>>1572718>>1572720Also, we should probably roll.
>>1572713Also I assume that Zela, Us and Rav are sleeping in the same house cuz we the leaders? With our friends in the same neighborhood?
>>1572718>>Just come willingly and if you agree to stop trying to kidnap us we'll not toss you in a cellHe says he already agreed for more than a month to not kidnap you, and still you turned on him. At this point you're basically asking him to give up on his wife, by continuing to further postpone his job. You can say that you'll help him, but at this point that bridge has kind of been burned.>>1572726No, Zela and Rav have their own accommodations. Just you have been living with Arba, the leader of the settlement.
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>1572724If we have to
>>1572732Good, but, eh.. >>1572730So, is that post ignored, he reconsiders it, we use the roll for something of our chosing, or what?
>>1572730Let me rephrase that>I'll assume we'll be sleeping in the same house >>1572732A 91 wasted What a sad day this is
>>1572734Should we save it for something else? If that anon and op are cool with it
>>1572732>>1572734With the 91 you can talk him down to peaceful surrender. He won't abandon his mission though, just like he won't abandon his wife. You can capture him peacefully by talking him down, but he's still going to keep trying to subdue you. And after this little stunt of betraying his trust, he's not going to be nice about it anymore either.>>1572746You can save it for something else in this scenario of the conflict between the vampire and mercenaries, and your own group. Not beyond this conflict though.>>1572735When/if you stop living with Arba and seek a house for yourself in the town? No, Zela and Rav have their own houses. You could try and ask them, but there's probably obvious relationship implications behind such a request.
>>1572769>With the 91 you can talk him down to peaceful surrender. He won't abandon his mission though, just like he won't abandon his wife. You can capture him peacefully by talking him down, but he's still going to keep trying to subdue you. And after this little stunt of betraying his trust, he's not going to be nice about it anymore either.I say we do that. Then we can see about getting his wife back somehow. Probably through hostages.Though I would like to take some precautions with him, obviously.
>>1572769If he's still going to try we might as well not use it Use it for how well our people fared against the mercenaries
>>1572769Hes still affected by Garlic right?
>>1572823Sure, why not?>>1572796>>1572785Which of the two then? Either are a viable choice.
>>1572829If he's still going to try and escape and get us in the process I don't see the roll being useful, let's use it for how well our people fought
>>1572829Meh, if he is going to keep trying to drag us to the queen, better to capture him.Do this: >>1572796
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>1572838So, now we roll for capturing him, right? Well, rolling for disarming/binding/stunning/knocking out/overpowering him with a spell/magic.
>>1572841>64That should be good enough to stun him with a blast, right?Then we would have chance to restrict him, do we need to roll for that too?
>>1572841Ask people to surround the house via whisper and to bring some garlic, then say outloud we'll try to talk him down Then we wait, once everything is set, grind then throw the garlic at him, while he's stunned have some orcs come in and restrain him Good enough?
>>1572855Betrayal again?Now, that is just asking for hin to hate us in his fullest.Do we really need to talk him down first for that? And I am sure he would just go 'Enouj talking' and retaliate before everything is ready.Can't we use >>1572841 >>1572841 to stun/restrain him with magic while we do what you want, if it is even possible?
>>1572885Yeah you're right That's kinda assholeish
>>1572885>>1572888Could we persuade him to help us break into the queens castle? And while we are there we can rescue his wife.
>>1573363We have the bird whose feathers can unlock any lock, we can use our capture as an entrance to the castle and we could purloin more magical items, and we can rescue the vampire's wife. We get more items and an ally.
>>1573363After we unite the orcs, sure
Hello all, sorry for the delay. Where I live, unexpectedly got the internet upgraded so it was out for the day. If I'd known beforehand I'd have forewarned.Unfortunately that means can't play much the rest of tonight, but maybe can move things along a little.
>>1574572Still lurking here op
>>1572841>>1572732So, with the vampire distracted, the bunch of orcs gathered basically dogpile him. He fights for his life, swings his sword around and evades capture like a cat to a bath, even bites a few when pinned, but they do manage to capture him with no deaths, just a few serious injuries. They want to kill him though for this, but you can at least convince them to postpone that action for the time being. With the addition of garlic available and other such measures, you can properly subdue him at least for now.Meanwhile, after all this you're met by Zela running in a panic, come to see if you're alright and to deliver the news that the fight with the mercenaries is over. The settlement did surprisingly well for such a suddenly cooked up plan, but she wants your attention, hopping up and down to try and get you to lower to her level. She hopes no one hears, but she says the orcs are committing atrocities, partly in revenge but mostly as an after-battle rite. She's not sure if you'd care or not, but she wanted you to at least know.
>>1574582Oh shit Choke him out and throw him in a cell, coat the stone walls with mushed and full garlic, the jails bar too, and only one guard in the corridor with two more outside Then run back to the fighters, we need to see what we can do
>>1574589That's a good plan and all but how does garlic affect him? >>1574582
>>1574589Unfortunately your extra care to imprison the vampire means more time taken, and it costs you about ten minutes or so. By the time you run back to the entrance of the town, it's not a pleasant sight and you're probably seeing the aftermath only. You can't easily discern what's gone on for sure since the sight of the battle is still fresh, but you see a few survivors lined up whom have clearly been maimed after the end of the fighting. Things like teeth removed as trophies or revenge injuries inflicted, as well as beatings and a couple of executions still going on. The only ones partially spared are a few of the surviving female mercenaries whom are being fought over for obvious purpose, and one male in a similar manner. All the rest, bodies and remains, are being looted and defiled like heads put on spikes.Perhaps most disconcerting as how much the orcs seem to act like this is normal, even the women and children participating in part. You've read and heard of some ghastly after-battle practices by all races from time to time, but actually seeing it is a little sickening for a first time atrocity to witness. Compared with, of course, the reaction you get from the orcs around of cheers and celebrations at your clever plan and the settlement's success. More than a few folks with bloody hands from the fight and aftermath take your hand or pat/slap at you in approval, and soon enough your presence catches the attention of Rav who's giving her own congratulations and offering orders on how and what to do after the combat.
>>1574597It's quite unpleasant and he'd want nothing to do with it. It's not like he'll explode if you put it on him, but it would be quite painful and irritating and be tremendously unpleasant for him. It wouldn't keep him from escaping if he really wanted to and had the chance, but it will certainly keep him more controllable while in captivity.
>>1574601That explanation took more than a few seconds Nothing we can do now, it would be disrespectful to their traditions Ask them to bring the captured slaves to us, we only want to see them, unless they want to give us one for how well we commanded the plan
>>1574601:/Let's puke, first time seeing so much gore?
>>1574614If you want a battle captive they'll certainly give you one, your choice of the lot. More or less, the orcs can line the few survivors up, except of course for those being fought over. Though you could probably claim one of them, but they're too busy fighting to separate them and put them with the other survivors.>>1574616A good idea, roll to not puke. Though you're pretty sure puking will lose you some respect. A little bit at least.
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>1574624Line them up, the ones that are being fought for too once an owner has been settled
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>1574624I kinda did wanted to puke, it felt like something the mc would do since he isn't used to this
>>1574643>>1574642You try your best not to hurl, and manage to do so, though the scene will haunt you for sure. Keeping your composure as best you can then, you express your wishes than indeed you want the survivors lined up. Seeing your interest, Rav tells them to settle the fighting, and before long the eight remaining survivors are on their knees before you and the gathered orcs. Four female and one male, the ones being fought over, a halfling fellow whom they think is a child so didn't kill, an actual child, and an old man. Also some animals belonging to the mercenaries, but they're not shoved in among the survivors.You feel a little pressure now though, because among the orcs they respected you for your successful plan and strong action, and now wait and watch with anticipation for what you'll do now.
>>1574690Ask the adults what is a kid doing here? Same with the old man? As for the adults, do they have family waiting for them? Kids, siblings, parents? And ask Rav what does someone in our position do now? Kill them? Enslave?
>>1574704And use the glass thing to look around
>>1574704You try talking to the captives, expectedly though they aren't the most talkative or cooperative. Some barely talk a little, and the old man talks willingly. The child is among the mercenary group as a prospective future member, learning from them and their exploits. It was an orphan found on one of their jobs so they took to raising it. As for the old man, he's just a seasoned old member of the company, now serving as a master of arms of sorts, basically keeping the rules and training folks. For family, well they've all got family to varying degrees, but they're well removed of them if they're working as mercenaries. Any family they do have, are likely far off whom they send money and letters to, or they left behind. You can ask Rav for advice though, none of the orcs will think less of you for that even if they speak up on all their opinions as well. Normally, the females and that one male would become war-won spouses, the children could become slaves or adopted if anyone wants them, and the old man probably let go unless he has some useful skill or could serve as entertainment.>>1574711Anything in particular you're after? Feel free to roll for it.
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>1574728The prisoners
>>1574730Oh are you trying to see if any of them are magical, or in some sort of disguise?That's fine, just make one more roll then. The 75 will definitely detect if there are any, this is to see just how magical or enchanted they may be.
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>1574728And take the one with the looks and fit bod The old man can take the child and leave if he wants >>1574733I was trying to see if any were lying or in disguise, yes
>>1574737Im down for the old man and child thing but >>1574733Would Rav care about the spouse if we married her in the future? Would the spouse be a problem?
I don't know if you're still there op but i got to go A heads-up you're signing off would be nice
>>1574737>86Alright yes, you actually notice that one of the survivors is entirely magical, and poorly masking it. You're not exactly sure what you're looking at, but she doesn't actually have any signs of a soul or at least not one that is clear like a life signature. She's not undead though, you're just clueless exactly what she is.Also one of them has a very strong life sign by odd contrast, currently flaring up as a couple orcs are having to restrain her. At first you thought it was just typical struggle as to be expected, but taking a step back in logic, there's no reason it should be that difficult to restrain a person even if she is a seasoned mercenary. She's also completely unintelligible and frothing blood at the mouth, eyes all white, but it's not like she's just out of it and having a seizure either; she's very clearly still trying to fight and kill them which shouldn't be possible with her dire injuries.Apart from that though, you can convince them to let the old man take the kids and leave though, for which you suppose they'd be thankful. Better than being slaves, even if the forest is dangerous. >>1574741A war spouse? No, none of the greenies would hold that against you. It's a common enough practice and cultural thing. Actually literally marrying one though wouldn't go well, but then "war spouse" doesn't imply actual marriage.If of course that's something you're into. You can't imagine such a situation could flower into some loving beautiful relationship between master and captive, but then you've also got an evil reputation to potentially live up to.>>1574783I'm still here though lolGoodnight anyway. If everyone is headed off, I probably will too.
>>1574601>you see a few survivors lined up whom have clearly been maimed after the end of the fighting. Things like teeth removed as trophies or revenge injuries inflicted, as well as beatings and a couple of executions still going on. The only ones partially spared are a few of the surviving female mercenaries whom are being fought over for obvious purpose, and one male in a similar manner. All the rest, bodies and remains, are being looted and defiled like heads put on spikes.>Perhaps most disconcerting as how much the orcs seem to act like this is normal, even the women and children participating in part.How does this compate to our mother or her subordinates?
>>1574813Also, I am thinking about giving them the Roman treatment:Sure, they are slaves, but they are allowed to own things and have money (if so the master desires), and can earn their freedoom (by becoming part of the orc tribe, the same way that Romans gave citienship) through great servise, a payment, and/or the allowance of their masters.That being said , I would like it more if they were 'public slaves', but that is interfering too much with their culture.Though, I assume that the orcs would agree that the magical ones can we put to greather employ than being owned by somebody.Basically, we offer those 2 to have a 'job' more adecuated to their set of skills.Can we discuse these consepts (eventual freedom, giving slaves duties according to their skills over personal (owner) use) with Rav and the other orc leader?I suppoce we will end up with the slaves having owners, but making it so they have chances to 'earn their position'. (Like letting the mercenaries, especially the magical ones, fight)That being said, we would also like to give some rights to the slaves, to aboid mistreatment. Something like 'These slaves are very difficult to get and are valuable accets, try to not damage them'.OP, elves do slavery?
>>1574813>>1574947>>1574972It is to say, they kind of just got caught in the middle of the disagreement between the vampire and us, right?A good pay, good living conditions, and they should be interested in staying with us. (Even if we free them?)
>>1574813I meant something like we marry Rav while still having a war spouseCall someone religious to take a look at the lively one and ask the soulless one what is she via whisper, we can see she's special. And let the old man and child leave >>1574972>>1575010If the orcs are okay with giving them those rights while still being slaves im down
>>1574947Nowadays the evil queen would be one to show mercy in order to try the survivors as servants. If anyone under her were caught doing anything to the living or dead after a battle though she'd execute them probably for dishonorable actions.>>1574972Well if you're letting the old man and the kids go, then that just leaves the ones being fought over, and the ones fighting over them aren't interested in making slaves of them really, they just want them as war spouses. You can try and impose all these ideas, but it's going above and beyond what the orcs have in mind; they're not rendering them as proper "slaves" or forcing them to do work or anything, some of the men and women just want them as mistresses or to marry eventually.As for elves, they don't really do slavery but then neither do the orcs. For the elves it would be more like indentured servitude, while the orcs more like forcibly incorporating captives into the group.>>1575010You can't say for sure how they'd feel about that since it's an individual basis thing. Certainly they'd prefer to be free, but some might be interested in staying if the conditions are better, while others might just have a grudge against the orcs for killing their mercenary fellows.>>1575038As long as you weren't to literally marry a war spouse, then there's no real disapproval for the orcs on even any number of them. Just the mark of a powerful or successful individual, and a sign of pride/respect. Indeed, Rav for example is a successful military leader herself, so the same could be in reverse of her also having such a captive or more if she wanted. So no, the greenies overall would look at it as a sign of success, and Rav would feel the same way if expecting the same courtesy.Either way, you let the old man and the kids go, and are left with just the survivors being contested over. For the lively one you can make a roll if someone can discern what's up with her. Same with the soulless one but for you just interacting with her yourself. To see if you can calm her down or at least put her worries to rest enough, to want or be able to talk to you despite being surrounded by victoriously slaughter-or orcs.
Rolled 5, 9 = 14 (2d100)>>1575056Rolling to se what they are
Rolled 25, 97 = 122 (2d100)>>1575066Holy shit
Rolled 67 (1d100)>>1575056And now I'm rolling to calm down the woman>>1575068Thanks
>>1575056On a scale of one to ten with fit body and good looks what are the scores of the two remaining females?
>>1575075And why not the magical ones too For good measure
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>1575072>And now I'm rolling to calm down the womanMe too.
>>1575056Oh, I am fine if they aren't slaves, sure.Still, how do our companions feel towards the events? Is Eula back with us? Do we have every gobling outfited with crossbows thanks to the elf girl?Also, before having a war spuce, can we see what the magical girls are like? And what would our companions feel towards us having a war spouce?Did our mother have anything similar?
>>1575068>>1575072Neither you nor any shamans or otherwise are sure of what the frenzied woman is, besides human. They're tresting her as diseased or cursed or something, so although she's still contested, they're less keen on taking her as a war bride.The other one though, the soulless one, you pull her aside and try to put her worries to rest. In the process though you get a closer look at her and also notice in grabbing her arm that it looks like her skin came off onto your hand. Obviously you're alarmed at first but in talking and observing, come to realize that she's actually a construct. A manikin animated by magic, basically an artificial person, it looks like she'd been using makeup and other means to appear more human, but really she's a combination of porcelain, clay, and other components all made up to look like a human and then animated.>>1575075>>1575078Of the remaining captives, the lone male is a handsome and supposedly cultured young man so has caught the interest of a couple of the orc women who participated in the battle. For the women, the two normal ones are a dwarf and a rabbitfolk, of average looks you'd imagine for their races. The construct looks like she was made to be appealing in looks, but she's actually kind of creepy when getting a good look and talking with her, since the joints of her body are actually segmented and she has cracks in places where she's taken damage. The frenzied woman though is decently attractive, which is the only reason she's been kept alive. Being mercenaries by trade, they're all very physically fit and generally healthy apart from the injuries sustained in battle just now. Well, except for the construct, the concept of physical fitness doesn't really apply to her since her body seems modular?
Is there any ingure on the ones alive?We could use our healt potion.Also, we should eventually talk woth Rav and the other orc about how they treat people after the battle.We can do it subtly, asking if this is something related to their culture, if there is any specific reason, and then we can try to explain to her why we would like for her to not do that on certain cases, like that if we desecrate the bodies too much, or we keep killing and/or torturing after the battle is over, we could lose potential subjects allies. Like raiding a village vs having it grow food for you, for example.
>>1575096Ask them to lend the woman to us for the meantime, if and when we've deemed her safe and what she is for the town we'll let her go to whoever wins Tell them what is up with the doll and what would they do? Anyone wants her? And ask the doll who made her and if her creator was among the warriors? And i say we pick the bunny
>>1575096Oh, well, do we or the contruction know how to fix/heal her?And the frenzied woman, well, don't we have calming spells? And can't we heal her?
>>1575096>Literal Bunny Girl I'm voting for her
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>1575124This too, I forgot lolCast calm and have them fetch healing stuff once she's calm
>>1575122>And i say we pick the bunnyI say we pic eithet the doll (because creppy) or the frenzied woman (because frenzied).
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>1575129>have them fetch healing stuff once she's calmWe have an infinite healing potion.

Rolled 96 (1d100)>>1575135Lets use that thenAlsoPretty shit rolls anons
>>1575089You're not sure how all your companions feel since only Rika is there, also looting the dead or pickpocketing the living who finished looting. The other companions aren't present so you can't say for sure. Zela and Arba are also there, the former appears quite scared and is cowering behind a barrel, while the latter is helping the injured orcs and others. Eula is not back yet no, probably still among the elves of the divine tree. The elf girl though you've kept to trading duty which has worked out well for you, such that your group at least are all at least basically armed and in time will all be fully equipped with elven gear. As for the captives, how do you mean see what they are like? You don't suppose your companions would care all that much about your relationship practices, considering they worked for an evil queen before this. Maybe Rika, it might change things but that's because she's your friend rather than servant. Only Gwen of the lot, outright disapproves since she's not used to violence or evil practices, so something like a war trophy mistress is alarming to her.As for your mother, you can recall one or two individuals she might have been close with in that way, while you were growing up. Never to the extent of an actual relationship to your mind though, but then you've no idea of her private life. She just doesn't and never did strike you as the sort to fool around that much, too careful and too concerned with honor for that. >>1575112Yes, they just fought in a battle so all the survivors are injured in some way or other, some worse than others. Like the frenzied woman should be dead from her wounds. You can heal them, but it might give a bad impression if you take to healing captives first over injured orcs and fellow townsfolk.You can talk with Rav and the others whenever you care to though, but a fair point that all races to your knowledge, participate in after battle practices. Obviously to different extents and degrees, but if you're trying to lecture the orcs on what they do in victory, well you might as well try to lecture every soldier of every race on how he should and shouldn't behave in war when his life is on the line and killing is his profession.
>>1575141Tell Gwen we're not going to be using her as a trophy/Mistress, whisper "We're not an Orc"
>>1575141>Yes, they just fought in a battle so all the survivors are injured in some way or other, some worse than others. Like the frenzied woman should be dead from her wounds. You can heal them, but it might give a bad impression if you take to healing captives first over injured orcs and fellow townsfolk.Calm her and make sure she doesn't die, once you have made the work of the orcs restaining her easier heal the inguried orcs and goblings. And if there are greenies that seem like they will die without inmedieate help, heal them before the woman, obviously.>You can talk with Rav and the others whenever you care to though, but a fair point that all races to your knowledge, participate in after battle practices.

I am more inclined to go towards something the ones that seem unique, like the frienzied woman, or the contruction-Wait, CAN she even be a spouce? I mean, if they didn't build her with that in mind. Then again, whoever made her made it so she looked like a woman, so...
>>1575156The frenzied one is still wanted thoIf no one wants the construct we could get away with both
>>1575122Wait which one are you asking to be lent?As for the doll, you think the main reason she's still contested is because they don't know she's a construct and believe her human. Like the halfling before thinking he was a child. If they figure out she's a construct, maybe she won't get the same interest but they'd probably find a use for her. You talk to the construct herself, she says she comes from a nation farther to the west where magic constructs are a more common thing along with other strange technological wonders. How she came to be with the mercenaries is a long story but her creator is not among the dead.>>1575124Since she's made of components, any sort of repairing magic should work. Only the parts of her which are porcelain is she unable to fix herself though, since the clay/malleable portions of herself, if they get damaged she can usually just reshape with her own hands even. A creepy prospect you realize, as to why she appears muscled and physically fit, she quite literally molded her exterior to appear that way.As for the frenzied woman, you're not sure if casting calm or anything like that is a good idea, because the frenzy seems to be what's keeping her alive through her ghastly injuries. Settling her down back to normal, may end up killing her.>>1575138>96With the help of the orcs trying to restrain her, you struggle to force feed her the healing potion, a few refills actually given her injuries. As expected she starts to heal, but your attempts at magically calming her don't work in the slightest. Perhaps for the best though, as her body heals and her injuries become less fatal, she seems to calm down on her own and eventually passes out. For this you get some angry reactions from the orcs for helping a captive enemy first, and lose a little respect. While they can recognize that she'd probably have died otherwise, they still believe you should help your own first.
>>1575159>The frenzied one is still wanted thoThey are hesitant, though.
>>1575161Whoops, had already written this post before seeing >>1575156 's care to help the greenies first. Well helping them out after should restore the confidence lost anyway.
>>1575161>For this you get some angry reactions from the orcs for helping a captive enemy first, and lose a little respect. While they can recognize that she'd probably have died otherwise, they still believe you should help your own first.Eh, I clarified that we should help those in grave condition first. We did we help her before anyone if there where inguried people and she could keep on for a while?
>>1575171Help them out after that then Explain to anyone interested in the construct what the deal is with her And i meant the frenzied woman And check if the construct has something between her legs
>>1575146Gwen isn't there, she wouldn't want to see all that went down with the fighting. It's just the reaction you can expect from her.>>1575156>be a spouse?You have no idea, something you'd have to ask her though obviously a question like that makes your intentions clear. From what you understand though, constructs made to look, act, and function like people and races (not just human) is a thing that exists. She's pretty creepy though, is that something you'd even be interested in?>>1575164They were wary of her while frenzied. Now that she isn't and may survive, they'll be more interested in her.>>1575173Sure just make a roll to see if you can heal others in need well enough.
>>1575171>Well helping them out after should restore the confidence lost anyway.It better do! >:(>Since she's made of components, any sort of repairing magic should work.Do we have any? If so we should fix her after healing everybody.Can she tell us about the frenzied woman?
>>1575185Well, we want to check for anyone interested(make that clear after explaining what she is) , wouldn't want to give her away to disappoint her future master
Rolled 27 (1d100)>>1575185Rolling for healing.Though it is just giving them to drink from the potion, how can we fail that?
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>1575196
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>1575198>>1575196Saving Throw
>>1575196>>1575198Man, our rolls are being shit lately.
>>1575200Thanks, again.>>1575185>She's pretty creepy though, is that something you'd even be interested in?OP, creepynes is a bonus.Thogh there seems to be an inclination for the buny girl+doll, though I would like something more like frenzied woman+doll.
>>1575186You do actually have a spell or two like that, but you're not familiar with how she was made or the magic animating her, so you're not sure if casting spells on her is safe. She thinks it would be at least.You can certainly ask her though, and talking to her she says that the frenzied woman is a berserker. You've no idea what that is, and the construct only knows a little so it may be best to ask the woman herself if she regains consciousness.>>1575200>72In the meantime you busy yourself with tending to the injured and dying townsfolk from the battle, thankful for Arba's help in ordering people based on their injuries and needs. You mange at least to save anyone who was dying, though there's quite a lot of less lethal injuries, which may take you a few hours to see to. The orcs and others are thankful though for your saving lives, so if you wanted to leave the less serious healing to others, they wouldn't hold it against you. Or you could entrust the refilling bottle to someone and let them do the healing for you.>>1575190In the meantime you explain the nature of the construct to those gathered, which upsets her you notice. After learning that though, interest in her dies down considerably. There's still some interest though, more from the women who are interested in putting her to use in domestic work or childcare.>>1575210Well if you want to be selfish and lay claim to more than one, you suppose you could. As the victorious leader of the effort it would be within your right, though you expect some sour feelings about it from the orcs. Maybe you could offer some alternative or trade of equivalent value though, which would appease any negative feelings on the matter, if you care about such things.
>>1575233Take the bunneeeeeeeShe might be creepy to adults but kids might like her, let the women inspect her and if no one wants her we could also take her so we can learn more about her
>>1575248That's for the doll I crave those bunny buns I deserve it for all my good friends rollsR-right?
>>1575233Lend them the bottle while we see to the captives Also voting for Bunny Gurl, ask for her name and if she has any skills other than fighting And ask the owner of the frenzied one if he'd lend her to us for a while to check if she's safe and all
>>1575260>And ask the owner of the frenzied one if he'd lend her to us for a while to check if she's safe and allI don't see how that is suppoced to work, she is unconsious.>>1575233>Maybe you could offer some alternative or trade of equivalent value though, which would appease any negative feelings on the matter, if you care about such things.Eh... can we enchant weapons and armor? I mean permanentrly.
>>1575280We ask the ownerWe get her homeWhen she wakes up Do some tests Ask questions Once we're done We take her to him
>>1575248>>1575253>>1575260Seems the choice is for the rabbitfolk, and you speak up saying you want her for organizing the battle effort. None can complain, and the orc fellow whom had her respectfully hands her over. You try to talk with her but she's one of the more traumatized ones so isn't in a speaking mood at the moment.As for the construct, you let her to be examined by some of the women then, and after some arguing and a fight breaking out, eventually the decide that yes, several of them would like to share in her use as a domestic worker and child caretaker.Lastly for the frenzied one you ask the guy who fought with the others for her, if you can borrow her for a time just to see if she's safe or cursed or whatnot. He doesn't see a problem in that, but wants her back as soon as you're able.>>1575280You're not that skilled for permanent enchantments, but Nadira is. Also you do own a few magic items, including weapons and armor that Rika pilfered from the evil queen's castle during the escape.
>>1575286Seems good.I think he will be more willing if we tell hin that instead of the forst post.This one is more like 'I want to make some questions to her first.'
>>1575292>You try to talk with her but she's one of the more traumatized ones so isn't in a speaking mood at the moment.Well, give her some time, and then speak to her. Use some calming magic if you need.>>1575292>eventually the decide that yes, several of them would like to share in her use as a domestic worker and child caretaker.So, a 'public slave'? No problem.>>1575233>You do actually have a spell or two like that, but you're not familiar with how she was made or the magic animating her, so you're not sure if casting spells on her is safe. She thinks it would be at leastWhat do you say, anons? Do we fix her?
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>1575292Who is the doll going to stay with tho? And ask what kind of magic should we use on her to fix her before she goes Then fix her After that let's take the frenzy woman and our rabbit to our home
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>1575292Ask the orc who had the bunne what was he planning on doing with her when he got home? >>1575313
Rolled 27 (1d100)Rolling
>>1575313Deciding to go for it, you cast the most basic repair spell you know, and mend the construct's porcelain face. With a cricking sound, the cracks slowly seal up as she touches at them in surprise and thanks you sincerely for it. You'll see how that goes for her for now, and if there's no adverse ffects you can do a better job.>>1575318Before leaving you happen to ask the orc whom had gotten the rabbitfolk what he had in mind for her. With some sly laughter he says he'd have gotten her patched up from her injuries, then after she'd better healed in a few days he was going to she how she fared as mistress potential.Considering that then, with some help you head on back to where you're staying with the rabbitfolk and the frenzied woman carried. You don't have a house of your own since you've been living with Arba, but you do have your own quarters in her house where you can go for the time being.So not much longer later and thanking an orc for his help, the frenzied woman is laid in your bed to recover, while the rabbitfolk kneels by her side since she's the only one left who's a friend probably.Eventually the frenzied woman does come to some tens of minutes later, jolting awake in a panic and having to be restrained from defending herself by the rabbitfolk. When she realizes what's going on and where she is, and when the situation is explained to her by her comrade, she calms down but doesn't seem at all happy. Looking to you, she asks if you're the cause of all this then, and calls you a traitor for working with these orcs.
>>1575292How wounded is the bunne?
Rolled 82 (1d100)>>1575333>Stfu, you don't know me or my reasons Ask her who she is and what happened to her in the battlefield? Why does that happen? What triggers it? We only need to know if she's safe to have here And if we know any magic tests to see if we can find anything about her condition, do them Now that the bunny girl is talking ask for her name, skills, age and so on Rolling for answers
>>1575341Not terribly so but she's got some banadaged wounds and is hurting.>>1575345You get to talking to the two, though obviously they're none too pleased. First you focus on the frenzy woman, learning of her name, Ragna from the north. It's hard to talk with her because she has such a heavy accent, but you can sort of figure things out. Apparently she has berserker's blood which sounds like an inherited malady among her family and others where she comes from, which causes a person to enter into a blood fury and rampage against any and all, unable to discern friend from foe. As you saw, it grants some significant strength allowing a human woman to put up a fight against a male orc warrior or even exceed one, and gave a massive amount of endurance that the ability kept her alive well past when she should have been dead. All at the cost of insane fury for the duration. It doesn't seem to be something she has any control over, it just happens when her heart is "on fire" so you'd guess it to mean if she gets too excited, angry, scared, or whatever else would elevate her heart rate enough. When not ragins she seems normal enough, so as long as you don't provoke her she shouldn't be a danger. You expect her to be more than a handful though for anyone who'd act forcefully against her though. For any magic tests you'd want to do though, that's up to you. It doesn't sound like a magic power but just a supernatural one, like Eula's abilities as a changeling; they're not magical, just some advancement of biology. That would explain why your attemtps to magically calm her down didn't work, in the same way that trying to magically dispel or see through Eula's disguises doesn't work.As for the rabbitfolk, with Ragna talking she calms down more and is a little better to talk. Her name is Nime, of an age which doesn't directly translate to human years. She was a messenger and scout for the mercenary group, and has survival skills and common domestic work experience, for helping mending the equipment of the mercenaries, dealing with basic ailments and cooking, camp work like that.
>>1575472Okay, that's what i had in mind, let's go get the orc fellow and explain to him the deal with her and what he should avoid doing And privately tell him it would be better to get to know her and all before trying to make a Mistress out of her, if that was his plans for her >I'm guessing you know what your orc will ask of you right?
>>1575568>>I'm guessing you know what your orc will ask of you right?Can we not say that?It seems pretty obvious and is kind of twisting the knife on the wound.
>>1575582We need to know if she knows, if she's somehow oblivious to it she needs to know, don't want her to rage out or have a breakdown
>>1575568>>1575582>>1575584She gives a hollow laugh when you tell her what the orc has in mind, and she doesn't think he'll be asking. She also says though that she's not going to just accept it, and even if she did, if he tries anything she'll go into a blood fury anyway, unintentionally and fight back. She doesn't have her weapons, and she recognizes the orcs are a strong and hardy people, but he'd be a fool if he thinks she'll just become his sweet little reserved human mistress.
>>1575584>We need to know if she knows, if she's somehow oblivious to it she needs to know, don't want her to rage out or have a breakdownWell, that is why we are already telling the orc that 'it would be better to get to know her and all before trying to make a Mistress', because if he just demands it to her, things can go bad, but we don't even know if the orc would actually demand it to her, since they are no proper slaves.
>>1575595Boi Excellent Remember that and go fetch the orc, tell him what she said and >>1575568In private
Got to head out for a couple hours, will continue when I get back. In the meantime feel free to plan and discuss and whatnot!
>>1575600Well, now, how to deal with the bunnygirl and Gwen?Hmm, maybe we can tell her that we just took her as a servant? Only for a short time (we pay her and she buys/earn her freedom?)?How would Gwen react to that?
>>1575618Basically, what does Gwen think of 'indentured servitude with some more rights and an actual end-date so they can become free at the fullness of time'.
>>1575618Well we did took her as a servant, that's what i wanted her for To look over the house and basically be a maid while we're out and i rather keep her to be honest
>>1575686>>1575618I wanted her for breeding once she was okay with us desuBut if you people want her for maid things i can wait a little
>>1575713Damn dude I think I want to now tooOnce she recovers and starts seeing us as her friend we could try something.
>>1575713you want furry kids instead of berzerk ones? lol
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>1575600Maybe we could have her as well when the orc hear about it >:)I rolling for it
>>1575719Why not Start small with friendly chats to get to know her then move onto subtle actions so she starts desiring us and when she likes us make an "accidental" move on herShe's our battle won Spouse after all And since there's no problem when we marry an Orc we could put some buns in her oven too If you catch my drift ;) >>1575722Of course, energetic kids sure beat the brats the berserkers could be
>>1575724Holy Fuck Use that roll to seduce/spark desire for us in the bunne PLEASE
>>1575724HahahahahahahHhClearly this was destiny :D
>>1575724What is that roll for?For the orc desiding that it is not worth it, giving us both of them?If so, count me in.
>>1575728I don't really care about the bunny girl but if get norden girl too we can use that roll to seduce the bunny
>>1575734Yes it was
>>1575739OkayJust making a suggestion If he does still want her then we ARE using the roll yes?
>>1575745He doesn't after that roll
Rolled 89 (1d100)If he rolled for the northern woman I'll roll for bunne
>>1576007HeyThat's pretty good
>>1575724I just realized, with that 100 ge might even end up giving us something as insentive to take the woman.
>>1576007For seduction Or just sparking attraction towards us
>>1576041Well, seduction is a little bit to much for a resently traumatized person.Wouldn't you rather us it for a friendly conversation?Things like easing her worries, clearing misunderstandings, getting to know each other.It is to say, her companions just got killed.
>>1576074It doesn't need to be vocal or anything, just enough for her to find the mc attractive, it could actions and stuff but conversation to calm her down and assure her we're not going to treat her like an Orc would is okay
>>1576087>we're not going to treat her like an Orc would is okay>Assuming orc treat 'slaves' badly.That is racist. Joke
>>1576099Patching up slaves only to fuck them later isn't bad treatment?
>>1576126...wasn't that eventually?Like, once she was fully healed and more confortable?
>>1576247Yeh but they do it differently, we'll actually get to know her unlike them, like the orc said, patch up and then try for Mistress No "Lets talk" bit
>>1576254Ok, though, isn't that also an assumption?Also, I found this piece of text that pretty much explains what I want:'The very least that could be done would be to encourage theadoption of the Roman model- atleast there, aslong as you weren't being sent to die in the mines, the base assumption is that you would eventually emancipate and then smoothly step into a role as a socioeconomicemployee/subordinate of your former owner, receiving a variable amount of initial help setting up on your own in exchange for sustaining a connection to your ex-owner's economic interests and meeting with him regularlyto coordinate with him on future business moves. Also, laws against being anenormous dickhole to your slaves, and some kind of institutionalizedbacklash for outright killing them.'Though again, they want them more as spouces than as slaves.
>>1576269Is Rav going to accept another spouse/wife tho?
>>1576328What are you talking about?Don't you want the bunny as a maid?She is fine with having lovers as Ruta because she only comes from time to time, but they wouldn't aprove of a spouce (IIRC).I said that THEY (the orcs) whant THEM (the other survivors) more as spouces than as slaves.
lol wtf is goin on in here
>>1576519Madness, in its purest and lewdest form.
Someone give me the Rundown while I catch up.
>>1575724>100Oh shit. Well, what would you like to have happen? Because basically whatever you want, is whatever will. Or you can let things play out as they will.
>>1576545See>>1575724>>1575734>>1575742And>>1575600Tell him and see his response? Someone wanted to get something from the orc as payment for giving us the berserk
>>1576562I was just specifying if the roller wanted something to go specifically the way he wanted, however he wanted. If he's not present it will just go off what he stated.
>>1576545Anything? Well, I am not the one that rolled, but what if, appart from having the orc give use the berserker, the women also get creeped out by the construction and offer us to take her instead (for a small amount of money or something like that?)That being said, can we use it so a subjects from our mother's enemy desides to betray them, slowing him down/killing the enemy? And that said subject had no interest in us?
>>1576570You're pushing a bit too much, we're not going to look good to the orcs if we end up with 3 even if the owners gave them to us The Frenzy woman and the bunny are okay Dontrelle take the childrens doll, you monster
>>1576570>That being said, can we use it so a subjects from our mother's enemy desides to betray them, slowing him down/killing the enemy? And that said subject had no interest in us?No since that is beyond this situation of the conflict and aftermath.If you want to share the 100 to the construct though, that seems fair then. Very greedy, but fair.So first thing's first, with Ragna awake now and learning of her situation, you make good on your promise and tell her to accompany you to her fate. It seems pointless by now to refuse but she reminds you she'll resist either by choice or by nature. A little while searching through town and you find the orc supposedly "owning" her though, for which he's glad to see her and draws her close which she struggles against. You quickly remind him of what you learned of her condition though, and while he doesn't seem too worried about her potential danger to himself, he doesn't like the idea of potential children inheriting some sort of blood curse from her. Obviously he's a little upset then to not really have gotten much out of the raid and victory, but that's not a grievance he has with you.Letting go of Ragna then, you ask what his plan is for her. He says if she won't serve as a mistress and runs the risk of freaking out and killing people, he doesn't want to be responsible for her. Just shove her off onto the tribe, eventually some other orc won't mind and perhaps even appreciate half-orc berserker children. Taking the chance before that happens then, you quietly offer Ragna to come with you. She seems none too happy with this, you being a filthy traitor in her eyes and all, but in favor of being passed around the tribe she finally accepts and follows you back to your place in Arba's home. Nime is glad to see her again and wonders what's gone on, but thanks you for it anyway.>>1576575Maybe later then, if at all? See first how things go with the prisoners you did take, and if it doesn't work out then maybe seek the construct?
>>1576575lolOk, though if you read my post, you will see that instead of greed it would be more like 'Look, we don't actually want to deal with them, do you think you can have her instead? Yes? Thanks.'
>>1576590Ok, though if you had read my post you would've noticed i wrote even if the owners gave them to usAnd why do you even want her? She's not that useful to us, we already have a future maid. Plus, she's creepy
>>1576601Oh Snap! Sassy Although, i support this >>1576587Explain what happened to her and ask if they would like a bath? We can ask the Goblin to prepare one And is the bathroom secure? No escape routes or something?
>>1576587My 89 isn't going to get used right?
>>1576606They very obviously would like to get washed and cleaned, considering they're covered in blood and dirt, and Nime is injured. You probably can't expect to go in and watch them though. The guest bathroom itself isn't as secure as you'd like, but then it's not like they can just get out and escape through town; they'll stand out like sore thumbs.>>1576609I was still dealing with the 100, but how would you want to play out the 89?
>>1576590>>1576587>Very greedy, but fair.*Sigh* No, thanks.Now, how to use more of that 100?Hmm, what about having some trolls come over and join?Increase in the reputatiom among our people?Also, how is Zela doing? We should probably go and talk to her.And how much longet until the queen's enemie comes? And until we can get out of here with a tribe?
>>1576619We could always train some more and increase either or magic or combat capabilities.
>>1576614Patch up Nime while we wait for the Goblin to get everything ready, use the refilling bottle, change and clean bandages, etc. All of that and>>1576087
>>1576619>>1576623No it doesn't work like that lol, you can't bank or share rolls. You got a 100 for that specific situation and could have it go whatever way you wanted. You can't have it work out some, and then try to cash in more for something else completely.
>>1576614>I was still dealing with the 100, but how would you want to play out the 89?>>1576619>*Sigh* No, thanks.Well, to be fair, I wanted to use the 100 so it DIDN'T strike as greedy.Can we use that 100 so the vapire losses the will to escape/the orc loss the desire to kill him?
>>1576619Zela you're not sure about, last you saw she was cowering away from all the violence. You can go look for her though, when you go to look for your healing potion bottle.As for the enemy, you don't know. You can leave though to meet with another tribe whenever you want to now. The vampire and his lot are dealt with so you're free to act without much worry.>>1576625You try to do your best for Nime now then leave to look for your refilling bottle, telling her and Ragna to stay put while the goblin servant fixes up the guest washroom for them.You search around and find the refilling bottle with Rav whom was using it to help the last of the injured townsfolk. She thanks you for it though, and compliments you for your actions and planning today, saying you gained a lot of respect from the different groups.After that you continue to search for Zela and have to ask around to find her. Eventually you do though, her hiding and crying behind a stack of boxes while a couple other goblins try to cheer her up. When you approach and they notice your presence though, she quickly tries to hide her tears and put on a fake look of happiness in asking what's going on and how you're doing?
>>1576638Give her a piggyback ride back to the girlsAsk her what's up with her? Why is she crying?
>>1576647>Ask her what's up with her? Why is she crying?...are you serious?>>1576638Telm her that we are sorry that she had to see that. That we didn't know of the orc's practices, and will try to deal with them somehow.
>>1576658No we won't, this is what they do We're not going to tell them to stop their battle tradition because one goblin can't stomach it
>>1576663>We're not going to tell them to stop their battle tradition because one goblin can't stomach itSure, I am fine with that, not with asking her what is wrong, though.Maybe explaining it to her.
>>1576647You ask to speak to her alone, which the other goblins bicker about but leave at her asking them to. In particular you try and get out of her, why she's sad, which takes a good bit of work for her to open up that much. You even apologize to her for what she saw, which she's utterly confused by your saying sorry. She's not bothered about the fighting or the aftermath. She says that she saw what happened with all the fighting, and was upset to see you join along with the orcs after and working with them in divvying up the spoils and doling out judgements and mediating. She thinks you're amazing and looks up to you, but she thought you were special and good, kind. So for her to see you just join in with them, was upsetting for her to see you behaving like them and participating in the violence. She fears it's only a matter of time till you're joining in the fighting and killing and are just as brutal as the rest of them. The idea of that worries her because in her eyes you're like a paragon of virtue and leadership, being human and exempt from the foibles of her kind, the greenies. She wants to believe you could always be good and inspire, but maybe living among the orcs, gobs and others, can sully even you overtime.
>>1576682>Pick up Gob >Put on shoulders >Walk to the house About the violence we joined in to protect our people, to try to lessen the casualties on our side, not to kill because they were the enemyAs for the slaves, she knows what orcs do with battle won slaves right? We're not going to do that, Nime, the bunny girl will be our maid so she can help us with the housework and Ragna will be our trainer, we'll treat them like normal people, not like mistresses or anything like that. We're nothing like the orcs or our warminded mom, hopefully we'll never be>Pick up gob again >HugLets show her we're helping Nime
>>1576706>MaidAnd moooooreI hope >>1576682And pick up bandages if we're going to need em
>>1576706>About the violence>As for the slaves, she knows what orcs do with battle won slaves right?She has no problem with either of those things and accepts them as the way they are, in fact gobs do them as well if they can. The problem she has is with you doing them.You pick her up to carry her which she panics, especially when you put her up on your shoulders. She clings to your head in fear and pleads with you not to drop her, and what was a nice gesture is actually very scary for her. Maybe better to settle for carrying her normally, though after that shoulder ride she clings firmly to you clothes and buries her face in your chest so she doesn't have to look down and be any more afraid. Though, she still shakes like a leaf the whole time till you return to your home. Once there you find Nime and Ragna again waiting, and introduce Zela to them. She's obviously shy and hides behind your leg, but you can tell she feels a bit better when you turn your attention to Nime and helping her. With the use of the refilling bottle, the rabbitfolk's wounds heal properly, save for the lost fur in those places, but she's surprised by your gesture and thanks you for your kindness. She can't help but ask why you're sticking your neck out for her and Ragna, assuming the orcs could turn on you if you show weakness.
>>1576719The fuck? Didn't we do this before? And didn't she like it? When Rav first showed up at the castle? The Orcs can't exactly see me doing this can they? And I doubt they will, I'll loose some respect at most but that's it Plus, It doesn't sit right with me to just let you suffer when I can do something about it
>>1576729No that's Nime asking you the question, not Zela.
>>1576719For starters we're human, the orc thing about patching her up only to screw her after she's well, doesn't really sound that appealing to us. As for the orcs, they won't, they're technically "ours" right? We decide what we can do with our>Battle Won Spouses! All of that in a joking not serious way
>>1576737What? The first bit is referring to carrying Zela The rest is for Nime
>>1576739And they just kind of got caight between a disagreement between the man that hired them and us, which also got caught in a disagreement between the person that hired her and us, so it is not like we have anything against her or anything like that.
>>1576744Wasn't a shoulder ride.>>1576739None of them take the joke well. Ragna just spits at the idea, Nime seems shocked and embarrassed, and Zela you detect a hint of jealousy as her grip of your leg tightens.Fortunately the awkwardness doesn't last long though, when the servant returns and says the guest washroom is ready for anyone intending to use it. With a sour look, Ragna says for Nime to go with her so they can clean up and be done with it. Thinking it would help to smooth things over with them though, you ask the servant goblin for some help on where to get some new clothes which might fit them? She tells you where in town, roughly, and along the way with Zela's help you're able to find it for sure. You ask for a few sets just in case, and are able to return shortly, while the two captives are still washing clean.Assumedly once they're done and dressed, you'll have the rest of the afternoon and evening to do as you please, then tomorrow you can depart to meet with a different group of orcs in the forest.
>>1576750Ask Zela to peek in and check if they're still there
>>1576752A simple enough action, Zela checks and confirms they are, though they actually ask for a brush. Or, Nime does at least. Otherwise though they seem smart enough to not just try and escape for the time being.
>>1576754OkayAsk Zela to go ask the other gob for a brush
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>1576754Peek in for good measure Stealthily
>>1576750Wait I just noticed No reaction to >>1576729>>1576739>>1576749Responses for Nime's question?
>>1576773Well it was more a formality, but you can have answered her question. It wasn't a complicated matter since it was based on an understanding, that she thinks you're the orcs' captive or just an advisor or something, rather than a leader of some of them.>>1576763>60While you're at it you figure to take a peek inside, it couldn't hurt right? Stealthily you open the door and look for what you can. The sight is about as expected, Ragna is in the washtub while Nime sits beside it and brushing her fur, probably after having already washed up first in the tub. You do get a decent look of her though from behind, as the two talk. At some point because of a noise outside, they turn to look your way, which you're quick enough to avoid being seen, but they noticed the door open a little and thinking it's Zela again ask what she wants. You just let it close though and rush back to your room in case.Eventually another ten minutes or so you hear a call from them for their clothes, but you intercept the goblin servant along the way and give her the new clothes for them to try on. It's awhile later but finally they return to your room looking much better. That is, not covered in blood and dirt, and wearing decent clothes, not tatters left so by the orcs trying to check them out.They both thank you, and Nime says how they got to talking, and that they both appreciate your helping them out. She admits it may be too soon to say, but she hopes that you don't come into trouble for showing this mercy to them. Ragna too, says she won't just ignore this kindness, but admits she doesn't fully trust you. It would help if you better explained what you have in mind for them, since so far it seems like you're just being needlessly nice. More than a little suspicious, to say the least, after you organized their comrades being butchered.
>>1576791>Yeah, i can see how being nice is suspicious >You gotta understand, I don't want to go home, I want to live my life my way, I couldn't bargain with the vampire and the chieftess here was ready to fight, which made my choices really limited >As for what I have in mind, Mine will help me with the housework here and in my future house and for Ragna I would appreciate it if you could train me, with fitness and combat
>>1576809Again, they're a little suspicious, but looking at one another and knowing the consequences otherwise they uneasily accept. Nime can't complain about housework, and Ragna says she can train you up if that's what you're after, though she does directly ask you what happened to the vampire? If he wasn't killed, she'd like to do so, for him putting the mercenary group through this fiasco. If you could give her that, and you're true to your word about not stringing them along, then she says you'll have her loyalty.
>>1576820>Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you but i can't do that >My mom has his wife hostage so until we get her out or I turn myself in I can't kill him without feeling guilty
>>1576834Talking like that, now they just have to know who you are, and who your mother is. Ragna at least, outright asks you, but Nime is also clearly interested.
>>1576838Wait what?>You don't know? >The Evil Queen of 
>>1576849Nime's jaw drops, while Ragna laughs in disbelief and says you must be lying. She's not even from remotely around these parts and even she knows the evil prince wouldn't be scraping out a living among some little orc town in the backwater of the elven forests. You may need some effort to convince her to believe you, as Nime seems to.
>>1576871>Why us that so hard to believe? Isn't the vampire enough? Why would a vamp go recruit so many for one guy? >Well>When Mom decides to come down you'll see I'm telling the truth We should also take a bath too, we must be pretty sticky after all of this
>>1576886She supposes the vampire is pretty good evidence considering where he was supposed to be taking you when they captured you. But then that could just be that you pissed the queen off or something and she wants you alive to punish you.You can take a bath no problem though, you want the goblin to draw you a new one?
>>1576933Yeah The four of us can hang in the meantime, answer any questions they might have Maybe get Zela to interact with them too
>>1576942You spend the time with them then, till you're ready to wash up, conversing and getting to know them better. With Zela there as well you try to get her involved, and Nime takes a liking to her at least. You give them a chance to explore the guest quarters you were afforded while you wash up, then it's to dinner as you have a pretty decent time and introduce them to your companions. Well, except for Sephaly as usual, that can come later when Nime and Ragna are better settled in.After dinner, Arba finds you and expects you to be spending the night together as is usual by now. Also for good purpose this time though, since you'll be setting out tomorrow to meet with another orcish group. Your choice towards this possibility, but either way you consider maybe letting Nime and Ragna to stay with your companions. Like with Rika, should be fairly safe, you can trust her to keep an eye on them and keep them out of trouble from the townsfolk. Just a thought though. If you are to cozy up with Arba, you might not want to subject them to listening to that, by staying in your guest room back in Arba's house.>>1577048Goodnight Pink and White player!
Also, we should start going to the other trives
>>1577334>>1577320>you'll be setting out tomorrow to meet with another orcish group.Also in the meantime, a link to a chatroom for things;https://discord.gg/zv2aBhH
>>1576663Uh, actually, I think you misunderstood. I didn't mean to enforce that, doing something as offering rewards should be enough.It is to say, I am sure that doing something for money/recognition/respect/any benefit/to help the tribe ('For this battle we need to capture as many prisoners as posible') is already part of their culture.
>>1577495It's a case where, because it was a battle which took place in the town, effectively the mercenaries attacking their home to their reasoning, they were pretty ruthless about leaving survivors and cruel to them. Indeed, there would have been more but by the time you reached them, they'd already killed off most of them, leaving some kids and an old man, and captives considered appealing enough to warrant keeping alive as trophies of victorious fighters who wanted them.Compare with a battle which may have taken place a good distance away from their homes, you wouldn't expect it to be a cakewalk for the surviving captives, but they also wouldn't be tortured and scourged in cruel retribution.
>>1577506Couldn't we have TOLD somebody to imprision the vampire the way we did instead of overseeing the process?Seems like what we would do for sheer logic if we wanted to rescue some survivors.And what do we need to do to kill the vampire? Just tell the orcd to kill him? Would they do it publivaly or just stab him in the sell and trow the body somewhere.
>>1576834>>1576838>>1576849>>1576871Oh... that happened.Ok, did Arba already inform the other orcs of this? She had plenty of time, after all. And Rav an her troops should have been easy to persuade.
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>1577320They can stay in Arba's house, we have to show them we don't have anything lewd planned for themKeep the business Quiet of course But before doing thatIs Zela still hanging out with us after dinner?
>>1577586Yeah, that's what i wanted but I forgot to write the "Quickly tell them" bit in the heat of the moment
>>1576619>And how much longet until the queen's enemie comes? And until we can get out of here with a tribe?>>1576638>As for the enemy, you don't know.Eh, no. We already know. I think the vampire already told us.I am just asking because I can't remember.
>>1576570>That being said, can we use it so a subjects from our mother's enemy desides to betray them, slowing him down/killing the enemy? And that said subject had no interest in us?>>1576587>No since that is beyond this situation of the conflict and aftermath.Ok, but can we roll for that happening anyway?
>>1577506Also Amy available houses in our neighborhood or close to it with enough space for us and the girls? Maybe Rav's?
>>1578023Eh, what is the roll for?
>>1578280Keeping the noise down
>>1577586If you'd have just told them though, then you may have gotten to the combat sooner, but there was a chance they'd have messed up containing the vampire and he'd get out. It was a possibility between properly securing him personally, or saving more survivors personally.>>1577709It was something you told only Nime and Ragna. They have the sense not to go talking about that, knowing how the orcs might react. Now later on, or if you make their lives miserable, they might spill the beans to try and get back at you now. But currently they're keeping the secret.And no, Arba didn't tell anyone either..>>1578023You decide to keep the two captives in Arba's house with you, and maybe just be a little more sensible about fooling around with the big orc. Yes though, Zela would still hang around if you'd not send her away.>>1578153No you don't know, neither did the vampire. He thought it would be within a month or two (at the time when you talked about it) but he had no further idea about it.>>1578157You want to roll for something just randomly happening someplace else in the world, which you have no contact or input with, to go a certain way? Maybe Nadira's divining could do something about it, but no, you can't just sit on your hands imagining a situation and hoping it comes true for a roll to take place.>>1578259You could take anyone's house as your own by asking, being the leader. Or stay with anyone for that matter, like Rav. The only issue is that the new houses built for your group were all made well, but quickly so they're all pretty similar and made only for the capacity of one family. So you could say, go to Rav and ask her to stay in her house, but there's going to have to be doubling up in the bed and people sleeping on the furniture or floor. Or get another bed, but still doubling up required.Besides that though, you've still got the situation between you and Arba. It was never supposed to be something permanent, but it's admittedly really nice, so you'd be quite reluctant to end it.
>>1578330>Zela is still with usExcellent, that means that a slumber party with her is possible! Could she stay the night with us? While we get to know the girls further and smooth things over even more? To start treating then like friends That way we don't sleep with Arba and we get to know the two and Zela gets two friends
>>1578343That will disappoint Arba, though :V
>>1578355If possible we can sneak out once they're asleep and give her a surprise visit
>>1578343>>1578355>>1578357You can do this but it's going to be pretty weird. Both the idea of it, and also because of what they just went through and how you only just met but they're you're captives. If you want to try it though you can roll and make a pitch for how you want to offer up this proposition. To Nime and Ragna that is, Zela would love to do it anyway without need of convincing.
>>1577586Oh and forgot about the second part but for the vampire, what little you know it shouldn't be terribly hard. Just staking him through the heart and removing his head should do the trick, added bonus for taking the remains out into the sun.
>>1578362Uh, to be fair, having a party the day your companions day seems pretty akwards.What about giving then a moment to get over it, out of respect?
>>1578362And if we only talk? Without calling it a slumber part, friendly chats to calm them and get to know them more Zela could accompany us too
>>1578374Yeah, this Moral support, show them we want to help
>>1578374>>1578377Uh, that seems fine.And we can go with Arba later, so I don't mind.
>>1578374Team meetings you mean?I'm on board for that.
>>1578374>>1578392>>1578372That's fair then, you can just ask for a little group meeting of sorts, to get to know one another better. And it's not like they have much a choice anyway, or anything better to do.Sleeping conditions are going to be a little cramped though, but for now with a little help you get set up in your room. You'd thought maybe something to occupy the time with, but they just want to drink and forget about the events of the day. They also have some different games they know from their mercenary travels, not just drinking ones either. The orcish brews are strong but that only helps, you just feel bad for poor little Zela, whose size and weight can only be a detriment. That's for later on though. For now, it's easy going and you all take to conversing. Zela speaks the least, being shy, and Nime seems still bothered by what happened earlier. Ragna has already gotten over it it appears though, and over the time spent conversing and with the drinking as well you expect everyone to ease up a bit. So if you had any concerns or questions for them, would be a good chance for that. Towards you, Ragna wants to know what you're doing here and what your goals are, while Nime wants to know more about you personally, as she does believe what you said about your identity and your mother.
>>1578780Uh, what were the details of the nation (if it was one) between the peach nation and the coast?
>>1578780>Put Gob on lapWe're trying to unite the orcs into a tribe again and then unite all the forest into one nation, maybe then Mother will see we're capable and leave us alone For Nime, go in detail about our upbringing, how Mom handled our friends and social life, the annoying pampering and the almost slave like prohibition of going outside, we're her because we want to leave our life, command it ourselves, not Mom How about them? Any interesting stories before joining the mercs? Hobbies?
>>1578780Well, the plan is to make a tribe and go conqueting.The peach nation could be to much for us, though.Elves have better tech and are better at fighting in forests.The red nation is made out of city states, so it could be a good start (though it is still near mother).The brown island could prove almost no resistance, but we need to go trough the sea, and is mostly decerts. (Though it should have lots of minerals.)Pink island... hell no, it is full of pirates.So, plan seems to be to conquer the red city estates and the expand to the brown island.
>>1578816The peach nation?
>>1578820You grab Zela which she shrieks and squirms, until she realizes what you're doing, then she gradually accepts it and ends up pulling your arms around her and snuggling up all cozy like, between trying to keep her balance with a big mug of booze.All the while you talk with them and explain your plan, though to be fair you're more versed with the way the orcs function than the two captives are. Because of that you tend more towards things that are easier to grasp and talk about yourself and a summary of your life story. Nime is quite sympathetic and tries to tell you it's alright and things are going to be better, while Zela is bawling over the sadness of it all. Ragna though is still on the fence about the truth of your identity, but if it were true she thinks you don't really have much grounds to complain when there's people suffering the world over every day. Maybe you had your dreams stifled, but she doesn't imagine you ever went hungry in your life. Trying to change the subject then you turn it back on them. After your speaking, Nime is easier to talk and says a bit about herself, how she had to leave her home because there were too many mouths to feed and after wandering around for a time came to join the mercenary group. As for hobbies, she actually likes collecting rare things she finds while scouting and foraging, but she's always wanted to see some of the bigger cities of the prominent races. Ragna by contrast has a more typical story of a mercenary you imagine, her people have been coming from the north for some time now fleeing troubles, and when she was old enough she took to sea raiding as is a common enough thing for her culture. After her group's ship got destroyed by a monster though and they were stranded far south from what they were used to, eventually they just split up and went their own ways. While traveling she needed money, food, things like that, and she happened upon hired work and made use of her skills. Originally she was actually a guard of a noble lady but that job went poorly so she ended up with the mercenaries. She'd like to return home to her people someday, she doesn't much care for these southern lands, but she admits she does like the food and drink. Also a fair bit of comedy how the farther south she's gone, the more dainty and proper the ladies are.
>>1578862Ragna is the more military minded of the two, and she thinks that's a decent idea. From what she's seen, the orcs are a strong and hardy people, if you could organize them then they'd make a powerful weapon to point at a nation. Your idea for the red nation seems straightforward enough, but if your concerns about the evil queen are grounded, then she suggests maybe instead going for the southern half of the elven domain? The forests only cover the upper half, so there's plenty of open land and normal towns and cities, mostly elven so easier to deal with than the forest elves. Or alternatively if you like the forest, you could target the portion of the salmon nation bordering the elven domain. It's densely forested as well, but not part of the elf lands so even less organized and sparsely populated. At least that's her opinion, if she had a choice and in the same position, she'd probably go for one of the islands given her favor for seafaring. Maybe even the gold island across the sea to the south.
>>1578932>And what about you Nime? What're your plans for the future?
>>1578882Map with nations and names.
>>1579026Oh, and the stars are capitals.
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>1578932Let the drinking continue and get touchy with the GobSubtly, wouldn't want the others to notice We're easing her jealousy tonight, we can blame it on alcohol
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>1579066BoiAsk before rolling my dude
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>1579066Rolling
>>1579066You want to do whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?
>>1579066>>1579070>Ask before rolling my dudeYeah, I am sligtly against doing that. Can we not do anything serious?
>>1579088Well, I don't want to. If the other anon (wsS) also doesn't want to, can we not do it?
>>1579102She's been getting jealous, a little feeling up won't hurt Plus she's drunk already
>>1579102Maybe as a fair middle ground, nothing serious?>>1578984You speak with Nime, what about her interests moving forward? She's not all that sure though, her kind have trouble planning ahead since they often change their minds. Thinking on it now though, she supposes she'd like to try living in a big city, learning to be a proper tailor and open a store for that, and have a big family.>>1579066>>1579075After a good while of hanging out, you're all varying degrees of tipsy. While Ragna plays a game and Nime tries poorly to remain coherent and not laughing all the time, you notice Zela being a little amorous with you, clearly not in her good senses from the drinking. You don't mind it though and snuggle with her close and even get a little touchy feely which causes her to gasp in surprise but she likes enough to let it happen. It's pretty weird given how small she is, but it's nothing too intimate anyway so you don't get carried away or anything. She just asks for a kiss and airily says she loves you, before nestling closer and cherishing your "big strong" body. You wonder how much she'll remember tomorrow, though you yourself are more than woozy and wouldn't mind sleeping anyhow. Among the lot of you, really only Ragna isn't all that drunk.
>>1579141Eh, isn't it time to go with Arba, or can we keep playing? How late is it?
>>1579141Time for a drunken game of cards? (Strip Poker or the equivalent of it)
>>1578882>The peach nation?No, the Fenlans.I think it was never mentioned.
>>1579163lol Why not? >>1579164Wanna roll?
>>1579155It's late, about the time when decent folks would be going to sleep. If you want to settle in with Arba, yes now would probably be the time if she hasn't already gone to bed.>>1579163Or you could do this. You do happen to have some cards handy, at any rate.>>1579164They are a republic of states which separated from Estania and declared independence. In a sense it's kind of similar to Myriline but on a larger scale with counties and such rather than city states, but it's definitely more unified towards the overall goals of the Republic.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>1579178Rolling for strip poker
>>1579178Do we even have to roll for it? They're already pretty drunk >>1579184
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>1579185Rolling for performance in game, pheraps?
Rolled 91, 33, 47 = 171 (3d100)>>1579184>>1579185Not something you have to roll for, just that it's what you're committing to for the night. So you decide to stay up awhile longer, and bring out the cards. Zela doesn't understand the rules, but Ragna and Nime are down to play.
>>1579200LOL Zela just kicked everyone's butt
>>1579200>>1579194So after several games, the general trend is determined. Surprisingly despite her inebriation and lack of proper understanding of the game, Zela is the clear winner and only lost her shoes. Chalk it up to goblin luck perhaps. You fare pretty well yourself and lose only your shirt. Ragna and Nime though lose consistently, and are both down to their underwear. Ragna doesn't care at all and is actually getting a little pissed, more because she keeps losing rather than losing clothes. Nime though is quite embarrassed isn't keen on playing much more for fear of losing the remaining bits of clothing she has left.Along with the drinking between hands, you're also all now very drunk. Even Ragna is visibly tipsy.
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>1579215Push through guuuuuurlsss, we have to best her, she's way drunkest than us Push through!
Rolled 67 (1d100)>>1579234Now it's my turn! Saving Throw!
Rolled 65, 63, 7 = 135 (3d100)>>1579243
>>1579254>>1579234>>1579243So, another couple rounds before you pass out. Again, you and Zela don't really lose anything, and Ragna manages to make up for her previous losses. Poor Nime though loses miserably, and is terribly embarrassed at having to do what comes next, outright panicking with a stifled scream when Ragna tells her to quit stalling and pretty much just rips part of her underwear off. Hope you're happy then, poor Nime feebly tries to cover her shame as you all, one by one drift off into a drunken stupor through subsequent rounds of cards.
>>1579294HaHA! She's not going to hear the end of it Sleep with Zela under our arm if we still have control
>>1579294Once the game finishes:>Look at Nima.>Roll yoir eyes.>Offer her a night glow or something similar.>'Good night'>>1579294>as you all, one by one drift off into a drunken stupor through subsequent rounds of cards.Thid means that we keep playing/rolling?
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>1579341Bruh She must endure it until the game is finished, that's the point of strip poker>>1579294Dunno if that's another round but
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>1579294Also, I forgot to post something whut is wrong Nime? There's nut in to be embarseded about, you're pretty
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>1579377Bruuuuh ask before rolling

>>1579392Ohlol >>1579393And >>1579381Or>>1579377If we're going for another round
>>1579341There's other rounds but it's not a serious effort anymore since you're having trouble keeping track of your cards even.>>1579360>85Before you pass out entirely, you say Nime shouldn't be so worried, she's pretty. In her own drunken stupor she tells you to stop and not to make fun of her, kicking you over in the process, but you can tell she took it to heart.After that, yes you end up passing out with Zela snuggled up to you.---You're awoken the next day by the goblin servant kicking you in annoyance. It seemed with Zela to your chest the servant didn't see her, so when she notices as well, Zela jumps up in anger and leaps to defend you, tackling the servant to the floor as they engage in a little green catfight of hitting and scratching and biting, and shrieking all the while which wakes up Ragna and Nime.
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>1579451Oh god Separate them! Get Zela while Ragna gets the servant
>>1579483Make sure they are fine, and use the potion if needed.
>>1579483>>1579512You manage to separate them with only a few bites and scratches to yourself, but struggle to keep them apart, screaming and spitting at each other. After Ragna drags the servant out of the room though things calm down a little more as Zela hugs onto you and hopes you're alright since she what she did to protect you, and she finds out that the servant was waking you up because it's getting to late in the morning. After a night of drinking it looks like you all slept in, and have got the headache and fatigue to show for it. Something to eat though and getting washed and dressed for the day ought to help, though you're not looking forward to long travel in order to meet another orc group.
>>1579577>Something to eat though and getting washed and dressed for the day ought to helpDo that, then.
>>1579577Did we kilk the vampire already? The other anons want to? Who do we need to do to talk to get him killed (if we didn't kill him already)?
>>1579577Get water for the bath while Zela rides us the way she likes, Nime and Ragna can go in first and Zela and us after them >>1579598If it actually gets us Ragna's loyalty. Sure
>>1579577This >>1579611And thank Zela vocally and with a head scratch and a peck on the cheek >>1579598If you want to
>>1579598No he's still alive. Would be pretty easy you just go to where he's being held and tell them you want to kill him, they'd even help.>>1579611You want to do that *with* Zela? Either way, while the washroom is being set up, the lot of you can get something to eat, and get that out of the way first of all.>>1579625You thank Zela by rustling her hair a little and leaning down to give her a little kiss on the cheek. She squees, turning a darker shade of green and throwing her arms around your neck in a hug before letting go to press at her cheek in disbelief.
>>1579680Yeah, so we/the hurt gob don't have to change the water again Lets go eat with our friends then, preferably in the coach so we can hang with Sephaly too and introduce her to the girls Give them a warning first too
>>1579680>No he's still alive. Would be pretty easy you just go to where he's being held and tell them you want to kill him, they'd even help.Eh, sure.
>>1579680>You want to do that *with* Zela? Yes, maximum teaaaaasing>>1579710Supporting Just tell them privately that we want him dead, we've realized he's too dangerous, get a good few orc and some stakes They know what to do i hope? Stab in the heart then decapitation?
>>1579750And burn the body.
>>1579758And keep the ashes, so we can give them to his wife thr moment we tell her she is ou-!Yeah, I better stop there
>>1579750Supporting Make sure they bring enough Orcs to safely overpower him
>>1579750And don't let him know we ordered it. Let him die thinking it was the orcs doing
>>1579704>>1579710Maybe best to kill the vampire before washing? It could be messy. At any rate you lead the ones with you to the coach, to have breakfast together with those you can. Gwen, Sephaly and Nadira are there, so with some forewarning you bring Ragna and Nime in as well. Naturally they panic at first, and are not at all comfortable the whole time they are there. But then it's usually that way with everyone, in time they might get used to Sephaly.After a decent breakfast then, you head with Ragna to where the vampire is, and with orc help let her kill him for revenge. You choose not to get involved just in case he might know it was you or something like that. Standing outside though you hear quite the ghastly endeavor, lots of beastly screaming and struggle. Eventually though Ragna emerges covered in blood and carrying the vampire's head, the orcs with the body behind her as they chuck the remains out into the sun to watch them burn and disintegrate. At your asking, they'll also collect up the ashes.Thereafter you gather the little group together again for the washroom back in Arba's house. Given the killing that just took place, you let Ragna and Nime go first, but Zela becomes quite exasperated at hearing you're going to wash together, even if she tries not to let that on and act like she's totally ok and cool with it.
>>1579880>exasperatedWhoops, wrong word. Just immensely flustered.
>>1579880>It's okay if you don't want to, we could wait for you to finish or would you rather bathe with Nime?
>>1579903She seems to want to but not to say so, and tries to make an excuse that Ragna and Nime together is too many. You suppose it's your call in the end, which is sooner rather than later because some ten minutes or more still and the two captives are washed up and dressed.
>>1580049>Get in>Not a word
>>1580049If she doesn't voice an agreement just do >>1580054And tell her we'll try not to take too long
>>1580068>>1580054Well you wash up together, trying not to share attention which ends up being pretty awkward. You're thankful it's over quick, and you're both out and dressed.Not long after that while sorting things in your room then, Arba enters and slaps you on the back, asking if you're ready to go? She's gathered up a good group for the effort to go meet another lot of orcs, and they should be ready for travel after midday. That should give you ample time to pack and prepare, and order any business you may have before leaving.
>>1580143Wait what? I thought >>1580054Was for just getting in ourselves while leaving her out I guess it still got the job done to an extent? Ask Nime and Ragna if they want to come with us? They might not want to deal with pesky orcs while we're gone, and Rav is coming right?
>>1580164Oh my mistake, I thought you were just trying to not push anything with her during a bath.And are you sure you want to bring Nime and Ragna? In town, they can't really escape. If you head out through the forest again, they'll definitely try and it will be much easier for them to get away. They can avoid orcs though just by staying with any of your companions not coming. Or have everyone stay in case things go south.As for Rav, that's your choice. Arba says it would be best if one accepted leader stays, in case anything goes wrong in town. You could bring both of them, but her advice is to leave either one, and take the other. Your call goes though.
>>1580183Lets take Rav, she's more well known right? And Arba knows how to run things here :/I thought they would think twice before leaving, since we killed the vamp for Ragna and we've been nice to Nime but i guess it wasn't enough then They can stay with our friends then Eula will come with us tho
>>1580195>Eula will come with us thoShe is still away, though.
>>1580183Are we still getting the bonuses (and attraction towards us) of having teased Zela?
I am ok with leaving them in town, though, what happened to the whole 'I will be loyal to you' part?
>>1580195You settle for taking Rav then, and let Arba to stay here and continue running things. She wishes you well then, and lets some of the orcs going what the general plan is and where to take you then. You'll have your friends stay here though, and keep an eye on Ragna and Nime.>>1580264Bonuses towards what?>>1580323You've only known them for like one day. They're grateful for your mercy and treatment of them, but if given the chance to escape they'll take it. Maybe after a few weeks, a month or so, then they might be friendly/loyal enough to want to stay with you and assist your efforts. Like when Ragna said she'd be loyal, that was under the assumption that she was going to remain your captive there in town. Overtime their friendliness towards you will exceed their fear of being betrayed, or dislike of being held captive among orcs.So anyway, you find Rav and ask her to be ready to accompany you, which she's fine with. Just make a roll then for travel through the forest to this other group.

>>1578932>but if it were true she thinks you don't really have much grounds to complain when there's people suffering the world over every day. Maybe you had your dreams stifled, but she doesn't imagine you ever went hungry in your life.He, I actually though of a responce to that, so we can use it if it ever comes up again."Of cource, the problems and desires of a person are bound to change depending on their status. After all, it is no coinsidence that the city of nations recognised for their development in subjects as philosopy or arts are frecuently surrounded by villages or nations bound to grow food for them (is it the same case in this setting?).Actually, it can be seen everywhere if you try, how those in power act based on desires instead of needs, it is just how people is.Thus, I know to not always espect empathy from people have to work and out their life at risk to feed themselves and their family, the same way that I know how sometimes trying to show empathy to others can be insulting.So, in other words, I have no grudge against you for if you think that."
>>1582323And they have the support of those around them, anyone that seemed like I was close to, disappeared or worse.
>>1583276>And they have the support of those around them, anyone that seemed like I was close to, disappeared or worse.I think we already told them about that.And again, my post is only if thr topic raises again.
>>1581674>>1580366>>1580364>69That works well enough. While traveling with the group then, about the third day in you encounter what looks like a pillaged wagon train of strange design, culture. Not many, only about four wagons, but while searching through you find an insectfolk tied up in the back of one, badly injured and left for dead. A moth kind upon inspection, it is barely coherent when one of the orcs rouses it to test for life, and says to leave it here in case the attackers return.
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>1584377Look around the tree line, inside the wagons and at the moth person with the glass thing but before that give the moth the healing potion while our people stand guard Rolling for glass
>>1584377>and says to leave it here in case the attackers returnWe could do that, or we could set up an ambush for the attackers. (With help of illusions and cover?)First of all, though, we should learn more about the situation, so I say that we heal it so we can make some questions. (Maybe they could be allies?)About what to do with it, we can heal him, leave him (as bait or to die), or we can take it with us (probably making it look like an animal broke in and draged it away to eat it?).Whatever the case, information first. Heal him and ask him who it is, who attacked it, how many, if they used magic, what weapons they used, if they fell in a trap or they encountered each other and they took the chamce and their numbers. (And any detail it may wants to add).And make sure to have people watching the surroundings to make sure you aren't surrounded/attacked without noticing, do it quick.Also, use illusions if they help.
>>1584398>92You can see some magical residue about the attack scene, as well as a trail leading away from the site. It seems clear to be a pretty good indicator of where they came from and went, but do you want to even get involved?You can help out the moth and offer the healing potion, which makes a world of difference after a few refills. Beyond that, well it's not really your business. Rav certainly doesn't seem to care and would rather continue on the way to the other group.>>1584475You can ask it some questions at the very least, to satisfy your own curiosity. The moth says it was actually a group of raiding elves, surprisingly. As you've found out, even though this is their nation and they have the cities and everything between, there are still some elves who prefer to live in nature or even turn to crime. This must have been such a case, though the moth says their group was betrayed by one among their own, it thinks. Mainly because it saw said individual not being attacked, and waiting aside for the elves to finish their attack. As you can tell, they did use some magic, and a usual complement of elven weapons. All the while your band of orcs have the good sense to watch out for any attackers, like if the moth was bait.
>>1584511Okay, give him some supplies set the moth up for travel, unless it wants to accompany us to the orcs place?
>>1584511Ask Rav how she fells about attacking (and capturing) some elves?
>>1584552>Ask Rav how she fells about attacking (and capturing) some elves?Add: 'They probably espect us.'Also, I don't knoe if the other an9ns wsnt to attack the elves.
>>1584529You can set it up to leave on its own if you like, or you can try to convince it to come with you. Either way, it thanks you dearly for your help.>>1584568>>1584552She gives you an evil smile while stretching her arms, saying she's always down for attacking and capturing elves. Some of the other orcs hear and are similarly interested, laughing and hefting their weapons.
>>1584552>>1584568Though, maybe we can team up with them?OP, are raider elves as arrogant as wood elves?
>>1584587Really depends on the group, some might be just as or more arrogant, some might be the equivalent of violent rednecks for elves, some might be noble bandits, and all things between. Given the aftermath of the wagon train though, it doesn't seem like they're the friendliest of types.
>>1584587>>1584607I don't know where you got the stupid idea they would be open for talking If the moth doesn't want to accompany us just leave itIs it a girl or boy?
>>1584636Open for talking, after we soundly trounce them. Get some elves in our group so we can have a legitimate claim on the area instead of being foreign conquerors.
>>1584582Ask what can it do? Name? Skills? We could transport it safely to the orc town where we're going I also support nor going into battle and risking our orcs getting hurt/killed that wouldn't look respectable
>>1584582>You can set it up to leave on its own if you like, or you can try to convince it to come with you. Either way, it thanks you dearly for your help.Well, it is safer in groups, and we are going to attack the elves, so she may be imterested, but all in all, it is her choice.>>1584636>I don't know where you got the stupid idea they would be open for talkingBecause Rav was also a raider?
>>1584687Rav isn't an elf? Rav is an Orc and that'd what orcs do here>>1584662This tooGetting there with beat up orcs would look good, especially if they got beat by elves
>>1584701Getting there with war spoils and extra slaves would look gooder.
>>1584687>and we are going to attack the elves, so she may be imterested, but all in all, it is her choice.Oh, the other anons disagree, don't say that if they don't change opinion.>>1584662>I also support nor going into battle and risking our orcs getting hurt/killed that wouldn't look respectableWouldn't captured elves make us look better, actually?
>>1584715But what If we roll low and loose though? My rolls have declined in highness recently
>>1584711>>1584715>Wanting wild violent redneck elves as slaves Are you people sure you want this much hassle later on during the trip? On THEIR element? Where they THRIVE?
>>1584724Shouldn't a surpice attack with the aid of magic be enough?Does the mont know how many they were?We could also wait for them to come back and kill them of guard.
>>1584736I'm a redneck and I resemble that remark.
>>1584736The orcs don't have already a lot of them?We already saw how they took elves as slaves the first time we met.
>>1584752Do they? I remember they didn't want to because they were too much hassle And those were city elves, not raider elves
>>1584745I vote for not engaging, we can once we're returning to our town>>1584662Does this need a roll op? >>1584607
>>1584736>Are you people sure you want this much hassle later on during the trip? On THEIR element? Where they THRIVE?...bind then with ropes?Use them as political gifts? (Though we were told to try a forceful aproach)And again:>>1584582>She gives you an evil smile while stretching her arms, saying she's always down for attacking and capturing elves. Some of the other orcs hear and are similarly interested, laughing and hefting their weapons.They don't seem to be againdt it.
>>1584858>>1584859If a player consensus can't be reached, I can roll a d2 to let fate go as it does.
>>1584859Rope assures you they won't escape? What have we learned? Senseless violence doesn't get us anything, remember? If they're against or not it doesn't matter, >>1584724Like ^ said If we roll low and get nothing to show forward it except beat up orcs our chances with the other group lowers We can senselessly raid elves later when we're stronger
>>1584662>>1584636Oh and for the moth, you can't tell much by looking but it says it's a she. Her name is Peshde, with high skills as a weaver and tailor (multiple arms helps for that) which earned her place on the wagon train. On a physical level though, she can also fly which is never not useful.
>>1584892Supporting >>1584895>Multiple ArmsKinky Where are her privates located if you don't mind me asking op? Crotch or does she have a bug butt?
>>1584871Are you going to roll if the others don't respond to>>1584892or vote?
>>1584895Raid elves now and recruit the moth if she is willing.
>>1584924No if there's a clear majority then there's no need for rolling. Looks like 2 against and 1 in favor?>>1584929>>1584909>>1584892>>1584909She's more humanoid like that.
>>1584940So looks like the majority are against it. You just help out Peshde, and offer to take her along. Better than being left here in the wild, especially when you can offer food, drink and safety.So ignoring the matter of the raiding elves, you continue your journey and after another day or so, you approach within scouting distance of one of the other two orcish groups in the region. Continuing much further and you run the possibility of being discovered, so it's your choice on how to approach. Rav thinks just marching on in confidently would be best for trying to show you mean business, but if you have a specific idea in mind they might follow it too.
>>1585240Rav knows better about these things so let's March to their walls with Rav and us at the front
>>1585240That's what i was thinking tooLets go for it
>>1585264>>1585260Make a roll then for the attempt! To throw your weight around and show them who's boss. At least as a group, speaking.And a second roll, to see if you yourself and act as a good representative. Unless you'd like Rav to do that as well.
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>1585284Both! Luke complimenting each other, one says something and the other adds onto it
Rolled 20, 94 = 114 (2d100)>>1585284Wrong dice lol
>>1585313Can i roll for only the first one? >>1585284
Rolled 13, 6 = 19 (2d100)>>1585313Fuck it
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>1585313Fuuuuuck iiitSupport Rolling the first roll instead of the twoooooo
Rolled 15, 17 = 32 (2d100)Rollerino
Rolled 7 (1d100)Can I roll only for the first roll, or would I need to roll again?
>>1586300Well, that's a 1.
>>1586310You're going to take that nonexistent post instead of >>1585313That has been sitting there for two damn hours?Did we just wait w hours for jack shit? That's just not fair
>>1586326Well, now I fell like a piece of shit.I just ruined this quest by rolling even after we got a fucking 94, and I had already rolled before.Fuck my life.
>>1586362Oh, and I did it so by coming bay after 2 hours of inactivity.Yeah, that just makes it even worse.Maybe I will leave this quest for a while.
>>1586310Well it was deleted, but that doesn't invalidate the 1 that was rolled.SO,Following Rav's lead, you try not to stand out too much along with Peshde, as the orcs do their thing and make a strong show of moving into the other group's territory. You're inclined to believe Arba when she said this would be the best method, for sure a group of 50 fighters strong traipsing through one's territory is cause for any concern.Unfortunately as the team approaches the settlement of this other group, a rather elaborate and complex trap is sprung by the defending orcs, involving whole trees being felled and set alight with flaming oil, to enclose your own team within a certain area and a strong display of force from the defenders sallying out. There's no way this could have been pulled off on the fly, and must have taken at least several days of planning. As well, there's no way this defending group should have so many members. Either way your team is encircled and things look grim as violence fast approaches. >>1585313>94In a pinch though, and mustering all your courage, you step ahead of the group and use magic to project your voice louder to all there. Keeping your confidence, you announce who you are and why you're here, and figure to at least compliment them on the trap. You're not at all afraid though, at least you give that impression, and it gives inspiration to your team. Almost a supernatural one, you can't explain it because it's not magic, but amid the rising smoke of all the burning trees a light through the canopy above happens to shine upon you and your group. Maybe just the impression it gives, but the enemy orcs, trolls and goblins despite their obvious advantage, second guess themselves and hesitate, meanwhile your orcs show strong unity and bravery.All of that, combined with you, a strange human among them, warrants special attention. You hear calling out from behind the gathered enemies, and through their ranks pushes past the obvious leader of them all. Rav quickly moves up to your side in case you need some orcish help with the issue, but the big green guy with decent equipment introduces himself. The leader of some of these greenies, he knows why you're all here since they've had people stalking you for a couple days now. However, he thinks you and your team have more in you all than anticipated. As such, he'll halt what would have been a vicious battle, and listen to you and what you may have to say or have in mind. A human, this far into the deep wood, deserves that chance at least.Plenty of the gathered greenies hear and angrily, vocally disagree with this, but a horn sounding back in the settlement, quietens them down. Why, and who sounded it though, is beyond your noticing at the moment as you're faced with the leader of apparently, only some of the gathered orcs, trolls and goblins here.
>>1586362To be fair the first number of that roll set was a 20, so it wasn't a bad idea to roll anyway. The 1 was just unlucky.
>>1586362>>1586369It's not a your fault, it's op's fault for being a lazy piece of shit and dissappearing mid-session without a word when he should've taken >>1585313If he seriously takes that 1 I'm leaving too, you people are what keeps this quest going you can't let him shit all over you and if he's so ungrateful to the point where he's actually going to use it you people should just fuck off and find someone that actually appreciate their players-->>1586376WellWay to shit on your playersNo wonder you have next to no players
>>1586385Well, at least we got saved by that 94, so it isn't as bad as I though it would be.
>>1586376"I come here not to battle against you, but offer you the chance to join us to march towards lands away from the woods and it's arrogant forest elves, where we can grow in strenght and make that land our own."Would this need a roll?And if we fail, can we challenge him to a duel? Something like "Will your people fight for you, when they know that you wouldn't fight for them?"
>>1586385>If he seriously takes that 1 I'm leaving too, you people are what keeps this quest going you can't let him shit all over you and if he's so ungrateful to the point where he's actually going to use it you people should just fuck off and find someone that actually appreciate their players-->>>1586376 #>Well>Way to shit on your players>No wonder you have next to no playersCome back bro, the 1 almost didn't have any (not countered by that 94) bad consequences.
>>1586385>it's op's fault for being a lazy piece of shitIf I'm not allowed to duck in and out once the thread hits autosage, I'm not sure what to say. When the thread is on the front page and can be bumped, I give like 6 -10 hours every day for playtime. The thread can be up for 10 days or more before it drops off the board, if you expect the same consistency for the entire duration then I'm sorry if I can't keep up that much.>Way to shit on your players>No wonder you have next to no playersI could have used only the 1 and discarded the 94 entirely. The rules have always been crit fails and crit success always take priority, no matter how long it takes between them and responses written. If a 1 or 100 gets rolled, it doesn't matter if I see it and respond within 30 seconds, or if someone posted it after I went to bed and see it and respond 8 hours later. I felt it fair though since the test was for two rolls, to balance the player's worst with the player's best.Either way, I didn't realize I was on a 1-strike basis where one bad thing against the players, in three threads of consistent play and success and cooperation, means I'm ungrateful and don't appreciate them. Like I could be one of those QMs who constantly fucks with players and is against their success and is only around maybe 1-2 hours a day, but it sounds like your grievances with this quest are long-running. Thank you for playing at least as long as you did, hope you don't regret it.
>>1586413I'm not mad about the consequences, I'm mad at the fact he just shits all over our trust in him, look at me, I'm using my phone's data to fucking play because I don't have Internet and with as many flaws as the session have I still enjoy it and if he's going to pull that kind of shit to us, his loyal players, then his quests are just not worth playing.The 1 wasn't even our fault, it's his for dissappearing and leaving us without a fucking care. Given he continues this lazy way of running things. And the fact he didn't respond just proves my point, and you know it. >>1586433Never fucking mind >>1586376We Want to Make the Forest Orcish Again. We want to restore the orc groups back to what they were, I've already allied myself with Arba, the leader of another group, with your help and our combined strength we can unite the whole forest with Orcs at the helm. What do you say?
>>1586433>If I'm not allowed to duck in and out once the thread hits autosage, You never said anything about leaving, you just fucked off without even a warning. >I give like 6-10 hours of play time In which half, or sometimes more, you're away without even saying anything. I expect consistency DURING the sessions, I can understand the schedule delays but you have to aim to at least be consistent while running. >I could have used only the 1 and discarded the 94 entirely. So fucking what? You still took it when you shouldn't have. >No matter how long it takes between them and responses written. >If I see it and respond within 30 seconds, or if someone posted it after i went to bed and see it and respond 8 hours later. Where the fuck where you those two hours in which I kept wasting my data to check if you had posted? What was so important to leave us hanging two hours for that 1? Was it worth this?
>>1586376Are you going to continue?
>>1586440>Given he continues this lazy way of running things.It's how I've always done things though, since thread 1. It's not something new, I've always maintained that once the thread hits autosage, there's no set runtime or consistency. The first three days are the serious, full play time. After that, I don't want to say the plot is less serious but the play certainly is, I don't devote the same constant attention to the quest when it's in autosage and it's my opinion that the players shouldn't beat themselves up over it either. I'll always appreciate if they do, but we can't all have the same available time for playing.>>1586465>You never said anything about leaving, you just fucked off without even a warning.To be fair, again, I've always maintained that being a possibility. If I don't post for more than 30, hell even more than 15, it's a safe assumption that I'm gone for awhile.>In which half, or sometimes more, you're away without even saying anything.Not during the first 3 days, not while the thread can be on the front page. During then, playtime is consistent and reliable, I maintain that. I believe this specific thread, I missed out a lot of the second day but I said so beforehand. The other threads before this, the first three days had the consistency you're requiring. Again though, if you expect the same consistency as the first three days, for the duration of the entire thread, I'm sorry but that's not going to happen.>So fucking what? You still took it when you shouldn't have.If I took the original roll of the 20, 94 then the outcome would be the same as it is now. A 20 is a terrible roll, not much better than a 1. Maybe the fallen tree barricades wouldn't be on fire, that's about it. You'd still be in this same predicament, for rolling as bad as a 20 or lower.>Was it worth this?I apologize your time was wasted by the absence, but all back to the above, absences shouldn't be unexpected when we're this late into the thread. I'm sorry but I can't spend 40+ hours a week, every week on this. It's suppose to just be a fun little quest on 4chan, not something that QM or players struggle to check every 10 seconds.>>1586483Yes I will, just trying to figure out how to continue.
>>1586401>>1586440You make a strong case to him about uniting your people's, and the idea of leaving this horrible forest is very appealing, even if he does enjoy killing elves.However you're met with the problem in that, for one thing he doesn't see how it benefits him, to throw in his lot with you, if you (a human) is going to end up in charge. The other problem is, that although he's the leader of his group, the leader of the other group is more powerful (as is his group) and he's the one calling the shots here. He's the one who set up this whole ambush, when he heard of some precocious human thinking he could lead the orcs, and he's the one who organized this merger between their two groups.Because when they heard Rav and Arba's groups combined into one as led by you, that combined force was a threat to their own groups and wellbeing. So they decided to combine their two groups, to oppose yours. Overall orc uniting, no one could ever complain about, but they're not keen on a human doing the uniting. Especially since the other orc leader fellow considers himself a chief already in all but name, now that he leads two groups basically.
>>1586525>It's nice you imagined that i would be in charge >That must mean you lot think highly of me>if that was the case then I would've come along with some orcs not followed by Rav here >Nudge Nudge>I would've brought Arba here too but someone had to stay behind to run things >I only wish to unite you and restore your people >You can decide which orc will rule once everything is set >Once I've done all i can i WILL leave, or stay as a high ranking person yet not eligible for ruling >I wish to do something in my life, to form part of something greater before returning home
>>1586539>Once I've done all i can i WILL leave,Everything is fine, exept that part.Weren't we going to become 'orc chief' by marrying Arba or Rav?
>>1586543She's going to be the chieftess, we're going to be the Husband that gives her support, counseling etc
>>1586543>>1586544>>1586539This is not a bad plan, but you're trying to pitch this idea to the leader fellow whom himself would like to be chief if possible. Certainly before a human could get to be.If you were offering Rav to him like a marriage deal, and together they become chief and chieftess, that would definitely catch his attention and win his interest. But if you're in front of him saying basically "Yeah me and Rav (or Arba, or even Zela) are going to get married, thereby making us the new chief and chieftess" then that's confirming his exact fears, of not only his dreams of chiefdom dying, but also the distaste of a human chief over him and his kind.
>>1586547How about this? Pull Rav aside and whisper >Want to be chieftess of your and Arba's group?
>>1586556>Pull Rav aside and whisper >>Want to be chieftess of your and Arba's group?Eh, what? And are you sure that wispering in front of a warry leader is a good idea?
>>1586556>>1586559Yes, it's not a bad idea but maybe not while the enemy are surrounding you and the leader is actively conversing with you?Unless you've got some bold, wacky plan in mind that needs to be done at this moment?
>>1586561>Well >What you and the other Orc have planned is much more different than what i hadn't anticipated, which means all my offers and agreements are pretty useless>Give us time to think of an agreement where you also benefit, hell, you could end up Chief of the three groups >We'll tell you tomorrow
>>1586569Your diplomacy has been a successful one, in stopping the massacre of your group here. And you've definitely made waves, and proven you're an individual of interest, worth keeping around to see how things play out.However, while they are willing to give you more time, the leader on behalf of the one above him, is of a mind to take you and Rav as political prisoners. Basically let your team leave safely and freely, in goodwill back to Arba's town, while you and Rav are kept here till things can be figured out and a deal reached. No violence, not hardships, just acceptance of defeat here today, and peaceful goodwill moving forward.You can of course try to change this bargain, but your team here getting to live another day is a great boon, and maybe you and Rav being closer to your enemies isn't so bad? Perhaps you want to keep your team together though. And the poor moth girl is all just entirely confused and scared of what's going on.
>>1586576What does Rav suggest?
>>1586585She doesn't want to be captured, as she thinks they'll just go back on their word. Like at any moment they could decide it's all too much trouble and kill you both. If she had her wishes, you'd all be leaving together safe and sound, back home to figure out a new course of action. She doesn't suppose though you'd be able to drive a bargain that good, but then she also doesn't perceive the kind of value which could be gained by living with/among the enemy and observing, learning.Maybe you could even send her back too, and just you remain as a hostage? If you wanted to assure she wasn't in any danger. But a difficult trade off of being here without her, though if your plans are contingent on her, perhaps her safety and freedom are the most important thing of all?
>>1586586Lets try bargaining first We can cut him a deal where he could end up being the orc with the most benefits, but we need to speak with all of our other associates to negotiate between all four and settle on something doable, he can't exactly roll out on the town saying he's the chief of the three with us in tow, that'll end badly. We'll go talk with our people then return ASAP to offer him the deal, if he accepts there could be some really good benefits in for him.
>>1586596We can cut BOTH. A dealThey both could end up really powerful orcs with a lot of land to show for it Make it about both of em while subtly trying to make it sound like he's getting priority
>>1586599>>1586596This might work, make a roll for the attempt.
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>1586600Ugh
>>1586601Give a speech strong enough to turn everyone against the big orc: he's putting greenie lives on the line because of a selfish, petty power struggle, if we only unite against him and show him we can take back the forest and unite without trouble there will be no greenie bloodshed and the forest will be yours We only wish to be a part of it, not be at the helm of it all, we'll decide once we're back home, anyone can come with us to our headquarters, there we will build a city together hold and protect you all. It shall be the greenies new capital those who choose to stay will still be our allies we only ask of you too keep things under control while we come back. What do you say?
>>1586602>city together hold andCity together to hold and >those who choose to stay will still Those who choose to stay here will
>>1586602And after the success tell Rav>I guess i have that commanding spark my mom has... >You know... >Wait for Rav's "uhh... Who? " >I didn't tell you? I swear I did >The Evil Queen of [Name]
>>1586602>not be at the helm of it allWell, we want to marry Rav, so...>>1586602>those who choose to stay will still be our allies we only ask of you too keep things under control while we come backI understand the logic behind this, but you need to understand that greenies WILL JUST COME if a tribe forms, so don't expect them to agree woth thag because it would kind of agreeing to stay behind with absolutly nobody.>>1586608Well, I don't think we will get time for that, since big orc is probably going to react badly once we start making more greenies join us, because we are kind of confirming his fears.Though maybe we can project our voice with magic? Convince everybody to join us against their leader before he gets a chance to order back? (It is a fucking 100)Then about what we do with him, maybe we can challenge him to a duel (with Rav), or choce between exilement or servitude.We could probably do that to the two, acrually. It is to say, we are kind of doing what their feared, take the power away from them by making their orc join us, and I am not sure of how much power you want to give to this guy, though I suppoce I am fine with anything that is under/still has to respond to Rav, so there could probably be some hate from him towards us, so I am not sure about giving him to much power/letting him join.It is to say, we could probably just change to speech to say 'these fools' instead, though you rolled the 100, so it is kind of your choice.And again, we don't really know much about these guys.
>>1586682Oh, and OP, please wait till he responds to this post, since he is the one that rolled the 100.
>>1586601>>1586602>100With that, you might not be able to sway everyone against the big orc leader, but you can definitely sway everyone who hears against him. Including the leader you're speaking with and so his whole group.Add some sort of action component, like something you or your team does so that it's not just you standing and lecturing a group of people who were poised to attack you. Talking to grab their ear and make them reconsider, and then doing something to sway their support and loyalty, and you're good to go.
>>1586759>not be able to sway everyoneThat is, to clarify, you could probably sway his own mother against him, but not everyone you want to have hear you is within hearing distance. Even projecting with magic, you'll get a larger audience but not the majority of both combined groups. An accompanying action though, will carry the sentiment farther.
>>1586770Ask them to open the gates mid speech, so we can take this to more people Our people can push past the traps and join us as we March inThat good enough?
>>1586851Cast that same amplifying spell once inside, have our people cheer too midway or when it feels appropriate
>>1586851More bold! You can get away with anything here, may as well smash the gates down, at the very least!
>>1586863That's viable then! And it would get us much more people right? Also pull Rav closer via pulling her from her hips, raise both of our fists together to show them that diplomacy works and that this is happening mostly thanks to her, for appearing when she did
>>1586759>>1586863What about something like "I want you so you can aid me in making a greater future for the orcs, and make you stronger with me, but he wants you to take the burden of a fight against your brothers, to be the wall where he hides behind. And he does so because it worries him, it worries him what we can do together if he is not the one who leads, just like you.You said that no one could ever complain about overall orc uniting, but I disagree. You have been in this petty fight over power all this time, always at each other's troaths. It is only at the face of me, a common threat, that you have joined.And what has been the result?Here you are, defending him, while he uses your fear as fuel, and only 'lowers' to do so because of his own. But it is that fear what has kept you divided.I am the one who changed things, I am the one that wants to unite the orcs, and I offer you the oportunity of leaving this hell, of making a natiom for your kind, of joining your brothers and sisters. Will you take it?"Glowing all the while with magic and having our people cheer us?Also, with so many numbers, can big orc decline a duel (againdt Rav) or would he be forced to compel, especially if we make his people doubt his leadership.
>>1586892>people doubt his leadership.*people doubt his leadership?
>>1586892I like this because it leaves open the posibilities of killing and recruting the big orc.
>>1586892It's kind of what I. Said but actually detailed Just combine them
>>1586608Why does this matter though?
>>1586892>>1586601>>1586602>>1586682>>1586884>100So considering the situation in your head, you gain inspiration from some quick thinking. Focusing on the leader before you again, you present him with an argument of how he's just being used by the bigger orc and how with that guy he doesn't really have much a future. With you though, already he can see you have what it takes to make things better and lead the orcs away from this blighted forest, and that you can promise him more power than the big orc can. It's like a moment of clarity for him, as he realizes you're right, he is just being used. The big orc made a good showing and promised many things, but if it weren't for him none of this would be happening. He goes through quite a crisis in that moment, but after a couple minutes of intense consideration for his orc brain, and talking it over with a couple close friends or advisors there, he finally returns to you and tries not to broadcast it by whispering as best he can, that he agrees with your point and he'd rather support another orc for chief or chieftess. He doesn't know what to do though, or how he can help you?
>>1587850Feeling inspired yourself then, and some quick thinking, you reach out and pull Rav close. Though she's bigger and stronger and you confuse her at first but she decides to go on your lead, and moves close though is caught off guard when you wrap your arm around her. With magic projection then, you give as rousing a speech to the other greenies gathered and within hearing distance as you can manage, covering some similar points as with the lesser leader before you but also appealing to their other interests; glory, victory, strength, unity, things like that. It took Rav a bit to catch on, but she joins in to help you steer the speech in better ways you might not have, and drums up support among your team and even some of the gathered greenies here. By the end of the speech you both raise your fists sky high with a yell from you and a roar from her of triumph. The ambition is infectious, and in that moment, you suddenly feel more powerful than you ever have, and both you and Rav are surrounded by a vicious force and reddish light which gives off a supremely imposing visage and will and makes your battle shouts reverberate through the whole area and perhaps beyond with a palpable wave of force that would encourage any friend to victory and cow any foe to submission.None can deny the will of the conquerors, and your team first and foremost with a resounding roar in unison charge the gates of the settlement. Seeing this and catching on, the lesser leader before you gives up his own roar calling for the big orc's head as he rushes after to join your team, and seeing this soon all his own group both inside and outside the fort follow after their leader and the shared will of the conquerors. Seeing all this, and the charge of victory before the both of you, Rav draws you close strongly with a fierce kiss which nearly overpowers you. Letting go only to give a bellowing laugh at the battle to come, she takes you by the hand to prompt you to follow after her, eventually so that you can rush in without needing her and the both of you can join the thick of the fray. Naturally you're a little worried since you're not a fighter, but you're so filled with strength and courage, as she hands you one of her two weapons you feel like you could take on the world. Even more, when she says this is your's and her's victory, fate waiting for the both of you to seize it, and nothing can stop you both together. Thereafter she rushes in after the charge to the heat of battle, similarly as invigorated and unstoppable as you.>However you wish to proceed, make rolls and add 100 to every result
>>1587857Oh, and of course, actually specify what it is you want to do, what is your plan.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>1587857Support Rav in her battle frenzy.
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>1587857Follow after her, catch upOnce we're with her tell her >>1586608And>If I don't make it, send a letter to The Evil Queen of [Name] >Tell her that her son fell in battle. Living his own life, enjoying every single second since he left and helping restore the Orcs back to their old strength. >In that month he lived much more than he ever did in those 17 years in the castle And try to protect Rav during the battle, staff/wand in one hand and sword on the other. The two groups will obviously charge in with us in the middle protecting Rav and the groups soldiers to minimize casualties
>>1587910You want to tell all that right in the middle of fighting? It's a lot to process, might throw Rav off her game.Either way you can join the fray, but have you any goals for the outcome of the combat? Are you trying to kill the big orc? Secure the fort? Just lead fighting from the front so all the greenies see you?
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>1587857Well, you are not a fighter, but don't let that stop you. Use the meele lighting technique that you practiced (I am asuming we kept practicing on the time skip) and go with Rav.Go for the big orc so you can declare your victory quickly. The faster this ends, the less greenies will die defending that fool.>>1587910>>If I don't make it, send a letter to The Evil Queen of [Name] >>Tell her that her son fell in battle. Living his own life, enjoying every single second since he left and helping restore the Orcs back to their old strength. >>In that month he lived much more than he ever did in those 17 years in the castleCan we not talk ablut our death in the middle of a frenzy? What about something more like how this is so much bettet than back home?
>>1587943That can wait then Secure the fort and capture the big orc And just stick close to Rav, she's not getting hurt on our watch
>>1587943Go to the front with Rav and go for the big orc.And don't get her out of the game.Do we have out armor? If not, put some wards on (actually, do it anyway), though do so while moving and fighting if possible, you have an image to keep up.Also, just curiosity, what is the mont doing right now?Oh, and trow some spell in here and there, to make use of all of your tools. And maje sure that the chief doesn't escape.
>>1587966>Also, just curiosity, what is the mont doing right now?She is probably still outside wondering wtf is going on.
>>1587857>However you wish to proceed, make rolls and add 100 to every resultSo that makes that 79 into a 179, right?Good.
>>1588047Yes, or any other rolls.Also a heads up this time but may be in and out intermittenetly for awhile so don't expect frequent posting.
Also, can we shouth something like "Block the exits! Offer then to join! The less that die because of that fool the better!" or would that take away the emotion and momentum of the moment?
>>1588484After you fight your way inside, yeah you can say something like that. Maybe a bit more appropriately orcy though, like telling them to take prisoners rather than kill.
>>1588596What about "If we keep them alive we will grow stronger! Do as you please!"?Also, I will be a lttle busy, so maybe I won't be able to keep up all that much.
>>1588621...could we reuse make our speech while fighting? Changed a little to point out how they are fighting to a man whose selfishness led to this divition, and offer them to join us against him?Would be still benefite from that 100 since it is basically the same spech and arguments? And would that get a +100 because of weird magic (divine intervention?), summing up to a total of 200? That would be awsome.And even more if we precented it with a booming magical voice, cus +100.
>>1588797>reuse make our*reuse our
Ok back again. Reading now.
>>1588797If you want to try rolling again you certainly can, it's not like you can fail!
>>1588900>If you want to try rolling again you certainly can, it's not like you can fail!>It would literally be a 200>Try again.HahahahaNo.
>>1587910>>1587944>>1587966>179At her prompting, you rush in after Rav to join the combat. Between some of the armor you brought, the magic you can wield and spells you've been practicing, you put up quite the fight. You might not be as skilled a fighter as the orcs or as strong, but with your own abilities you can fight alongside them all the way. Together with Rav and your team, and the defectors of the lesser leader, you come to fight on pretty even terms and area by area take the fort. There's a good deal of bloodshed, but your efforts to capture rather than kill, or even just cause enemies to defect, turn out to do surprisingly well. Within half an hour, maybe more you've managed to reclaim the fort and force any enemies out to a camp which you notice has been setup near to the fort. Probably the big orc's as he traveled to join with the lesser leader. You think you'd have noticed if he was around in the fort so he must be in the camp. Gathering up everyone you can for a final push though, you're confronted with the matter of either continuing along with the fighting or staying back to heal and help anyone so far whom has been wounded or dying.>>1588930Well you can't piggyback off another roll you already expended. Now perhaps more than ever, because in this instance, it was the initial roll which prompted something special to happen, so you wouldn't get the special bonus before it was even possible.
>>1588975Give the refilling vial to the ones that are staying behind along with some simple instructions Drink until patched up then pass it to someone else
Rolled 81, 33 = 114 (2d100)>>1588975>Well you can't piggyback off another roll you already expended. Now perhaps more than ever, because in this instance, it was the initial roll which prompted something special to happen, so you wouldn't get the special bonus before it was even possible.Hmm, ok. Do we still get +100, though?Also, give the potion to an orc, tell him that it will heal the wounded and that it is endless. Daying people first, if there is need to choce those from our side should be healed first. Tell him to ask somebody to organice the wounded based on their gravity if needed.Make sure to pic up of the orcs from Rav and to recognice him, just so you can ask for it later.Tell Rav that this is way better than back on our home. If she ask, tell her thag we thought that we already told her about our mother. Then tell her.Go with Rav to fight the guy.Roll for healing and fight.
>>1589039Well, this can either be really good or bad depending on if we get that +100 or not, because we kind of can't lose and that would give us amazing healing.Also, can we demand a duel with the orc? Would there be problems with a 2 vs 1? If so, I think just attacking woulf be better, or would a victory from Rav on a 1 vs 1 be better for her? Then, again, it is OUR victory.
>>1589039Yes sorry if that wasn't clear, but for the duration of the conflict you get +100s
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>1589039Hold the fuk up We're not telling her until we're done here, you're going to mess with he mojoI don't think we have to roll for healing, if it's them doing it while we're gone it's up to them Assisting fighting
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>1589039>>1589059Here i come again
>>1589059>Hold the fuk up >We're not telling her until we're done here, you're going to mess with he mojoEh? I though everybody wanted to tell her before and now we had a chance, but if you don't want to, no problem. Though I would like to tell her that as soon as possible. You know, before fimishing doing something so important as this together.
>>1589083>>1589060Also, good roll.
>>1589083The "back home" bit is okay We have an excuse for that, we were going to tell her back when we talked them down but she kind of just rushed ahead. So we just waited for her to settle down after the fighting to take in the news, dropping a truth bomb this big could've affected her during the battle
>>1589060>>1589059>>1589039>>1588985>181, 188So handing off your refilling healing potion (after you and Rav both taking a swig yourselves) to a goblin shaman and instructing its use, you continue on with the fight. Rav gives a rallying roar as you talk it up one last time, encouraging everyone gathered for the final push to take down this foolish tyrant, and hyping them up for the charge.As the gathered force moves to smash down some of the wall rather than exit the fort and circle all the way around, now would be the chance to tell Rav the truth, if you want to do so before this is all over with, for better or worse. You wanted to hold off until after, since it's a big kernel of truth to chew on, but you might not get another chance.
>>1589111In that case lets do >>1587910>Don't let this affect you, we'll talk in detail about this, later >I don't want you dying on me because I brought you along and told you this Put our palms on her cheeks abs lock eyes >You hear me?
>>1589129And >>1589107This too if we have time
>>1589107>The "back home" bit is okay >We have an excuse for that, we were going to tell her back when we talked them down but she kind of just rushed ahead. So we just waited for her to settle down after the fighting to take in the news, dropping a truth bomb this big could've affected her during the battle>>1589111>As the gathered force moves to smash down some of the wall rather than exit the fort and circle all the way around, now would be the chance to tell Rav the truth, if you want to do so before this is all over with, for better or worse. You wanted to hold off until after, since it's a big kernel of truth to chew on, but you might not get another chance.*Go for a kiss*"Well, this is way better than being trapped in that damned castle with my mother.""Wait, I didn't tell you already? My mother is the queen of [name], I though I had already told you. (This part is actually true)"Do you agree with this, anons? You can change it however you want. And I suppoce that the kiss shoulf set up the mod, but that is optional.
>>1589150They're basically the same
>>1589129>>1589136Fearing you may not get another chance, you catch up to Rav and the group, and grab at her for a moment to get her attention. She's obviously busy with gathering anyone together but when you keep at it, she eventually understands it's important and steps aside to ask you what's wrong, hoping you're not injured or anything.You explain to her though that you have something to confess and are afraid this is your only chance. You try to explain your identity to her and just a little of your reasoning. She takes it hard and you can tell she's thinking about all the different issues with it, but you grab and meet her face to face (as best you can) and tell her not to dwell on it so much right now, there's only one thing that matters. Taking a deep breath, she nods in acknowledgement, and just asks why you didn't tell her sooner, before focusing back on the effort at hand. You consider if maybe a kiss to smooth things over is in order, but as you told her, she tells you, later maybe.Finally with the effort of two trolls the wall is smashed down, and the path to the remaining enemy camp is clear. One great, final charge as everyone there pushes ahead and surges to, and into the camp. The fighting is a lot more brutal since you get the feeling the big orc kept his strongest and most trusted here instead of at the ambush. Still, you and Rav fighting back to back and succeeding against all odds, inspire and encourage all around you. The battle is tough, long, and bloody but you struggle through victorious. A little worse for the wear though, as you've both been injured a few times and have to support one another to keep up.There's only one thing on your mind though, as you and a gathered through spearhead into the camp and finally seek out the biggest tent you can. It seems appropriate enough, and the correct assumption as the big orc is haughty enough for it. Therein you find a few personal guard, and the big orc himself quickly trying to gather goods up and actually looks like he's trying to flee. The battle has gone south for him, so rather than stay and risk his own life, maybe he wants to just escape with his valuables? As much as you'd like to just be done with it and kill or subdue him though, you and Rav aren't in great shape and you lack your healing potion. Maybe it would be for the best if you let him run for now and seek him out at full strength later?>Whatever action you choose, make a roll.
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>1589189How many soldiers do we have? Can he still be overpowered sheer numbers?
>>1589230Oh yeah you can definitely just take a step back and let your allies just outnumber him. Rav wants to defeat him herself though, and it would certainly gain much respect for her to defeat a rival to her claim. For people to witness that, would cement her authority.
Rolled 32 + 100 (1d100 + 100)>>1589189Wasn't the vote to make ir look like we thought that she already knew? (Which is the truth, actually)Anyway, can't we shot a projectile spell (do we have the crossbow?) at his leg to make him unable to escape?If so, rolling for shoting.Also, can we cast defence wards or buffs on us and the soldiers near us again?Whatever the case, go for him now. Block his escape route and fight him.Rolling for shoot.>>1589230Can we use this for the combat on itself?
>>1589274Well, let the troops in to overpower the guards and take potshots at him while the others circle the tent Once the guards are dead pull him out of the tent and hold him down while we have someone fetch the bottle
>>1589290Shoute something like "You won't escape!" while shooting.And go for him with Rav, she (us) will only have one chance like this.And we got a 183.
>>1589295>Once the guards are dead pull him out of the tent and hold him down while we have someone fetch the bottleWot? I am not sure if I get it. I am fine with letting the soldiers take care of the guards, but I think Rav wants us to take him down in battle, not with numbers.
>>1589295>>1589324I think he's intending that the big orc is subdued, then with the potion Rav is healed up to full, to fight him on even grounds.
>>1589324Yeah, they're only going to drag him out once ran gets the bottle its all on her
>>1589339>once ran gets the bottle its all on herUh, I am fine with the idea of a duel, but does Rav want to fight him alone, or with us? And would we still get the +100?
>>1589373Whatever the case, go for it.
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>1589373She's getting the same benefit you are, you're sharing.>>1589230>>1589290>>1589295>183So together with Rav, and the gathered others, those outside fight off any reinforcements coming for the big orc, while you and the others inside fight against the tyrant himself and his personal guards.It's a bloody and bitter battle, costing more than a few lives. In the end though, your triumph continues. Only a few are left alive and the big orc is subdued and dragged out. Upon seeing this, anyone whom supported him, either decide to defect now, or at least surrender until his life isn't in danger.While you wait for the healing potion to be run over, he angrily asks why you don't just kill him then? He also gives some pretty strong talking, about you to everyone there, and how you're just using them. Some human outsider, weak, and only able to get his way with trickery and deception. They're all fools if they accept you to lead them, how it will all end badly, etc... while he is in a defeated position, it is an orc saying this to other greenies. He doesn't sway them like you did, but he does cause some concern you can tell. Rav doesn't seem to think it will matter though when he's dead soon enough.And before long the healing potion is brought up, as Rav takes a few swigs. While her body mends to the magic though, she also gives it to the big orc to drink. You didn't expect this and try to stop her, seeing the big orc rather confident in knowing he'll be at full strength for the fight, and saying Rav is very stupid to allow that. She tells you to believe in her though, you did your part for winning the battle, now let her do her part for winning the duel.>Dice roll for Rav's performance in the fight. Still +100
Rolled 9 + 100 (1d100 + 100)>>1589414>14Hahaha.>She tells you to believe in her though, you did your part for winning the battle, now let her do her part for winning the duel.*Smile* As you whish.
>>1589442>109Still high, though I would like more...Support rolls, anyone?>>1589442>*Smile* As you whish.Eh, actually ignore the smile. Just show that we trust her.
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>1587857>>1589414>Empty words given what i told them back at the other place >I do not wish to lead, only help unite you all>I've no time for ruling Tell Rav >We've both done our share to get here, you took me in, i got us to Arba and talked down our people's demise >It's your turn now Rav, remember what you said? It's our victory. >Don't let me celebrate alone
>>1589480Who knew you were so romantic?
>>1589442>>1589470>>1589480>184You give your encouragement to Rav and let her know you trust her. Your support encourages her all the greater and you give her back the axe she lent you, to face off against the big orc as she tells the ones holding him to let him go.It looks pretty grim you'd think normally, as the big orc is indeed a big orc and now fully healed and given back his weapons, he seems pretty confident and laughs at Rav and all your efforts. She just remains quiet and focused, and only goes through the duel opening procedure for tradition and respect. The fight starts out no better, as Rav is knocked around and beaten down constantly, the big orc clearly a more brutal fighter if not a skilled one. Every time though, Rav gets back up, seeming to have shrugged off the greatest attacks with only minor injuries. And the more the big orc tries (and slowly wears himself out) and the more she takes a beating, the better she starts to retaliate. As if driven by some supernatural force, she recovers and retaliates, and as the fight drags on it slowly but surely turns more and more in her favor. Eventually the tables are turned as Rav ends up on the offensive and really gets to show off her own skills. She's more agile, faster, and inexplicably strong if not stronger than her opponent. She starts to win for sure, and before things are done, she doesn't just defeat him but she humbles him. Left kneeling in defeat, wounded pretty badly in several places (one of Rav's axes lodged in his gut) and exhausted, afraid even to see how things turned against him, he admits defeat and asks for mercy. He says he now understands he was wrong and how it was a mistake to deny any of you or your will. Rav hears him and even torments him a little, encouraging him to continue, to really beg for it. Finally though when he's as low as he can get, and he might have had some hope he could survive this, she swings around rapidly and embeds her axe into his neck. A shocked expression and choking on his blood, Rav gives another swing or two, before pulling his head free of his shoulders by kicking his body down. The area explodes with activity as anyone and everyone reacts in their own ways to her victory. They gather, they cheer and roar, the throw weapons and objects into the air, they hug and laugh and cry with one another, and would hoist her on high in celebration. Instead though, through it all she looks for, and finds you. Taking you by the hand, she draws you close with a deep kiss for you to hold onto her, at her side with the both of you atop the body of the dead orc pretender, hoisting his head high and giving a triumphant roar.Again a heavenly light pierces the canopy and illuminates the two of you, as the force and energy of the victory is so powerful that you could reach out and grasp it. If this is what seizing destiny is, you can believe it. And so do the others, as all show respect and proclaim Rav chieftess, ruler, and even Khanum.
>>1589656Start overseeing the healing of our wounded and rally everyone back home, but stop at the lesser leader's castle first Let Rav deal with the deserters, captives, surrendered, etc. And thank her for allowing us in back in that elven caravan
>>1589678Eh, before this, do we need to do a ceremony or something? Because of the whole chieftess, ruler and Khanum thing.Can we give the bottle to somebody if that takes to long?Also, what about letting her ask us about our identity and such?
>>1589714It would be better if we could do it ourself, looks better And she can start asking questions too
>>1589726>It would be better if we could do it ourself, looks betterYeah, but not if it cost lives, that is why:>>1589714>if that takes to long?
>>1589737It's still one flaskWho operates it doesn't really matter, it can heal the same amount of people in the same amount of time
>>1589752I meant if we are busy.>>1589714>Eh, before this, do we need to do a ceremony or something? Because of the whole chieftess, ruler and Khanum thing.>Can we give the bottle to somebody if that takes to long?
>>1589678>>1589714Before anything else, you congratulate Rav on the victory. She says though she couldn't have done it without you and loves you for it, asking if you always win at everything you do? You of course thank her from all the way at the beginning, accepting you to join and live with her after you first met.After that, you devote yourself to helping people out with your magic and potion bottle, alongside various other greenie helpers, both mundane and magical. You could let someone else take care of it, but it earns you a lot of gratitude and respect, even more than already from leading them all to victory and especially from fighting alongside them in the thick of combat.As for all the talk about Rav's exalted position, you come to learn that a lot of it seemed to be cheering, exaggeration and bluster in the moment. There are few if any whom would doubt Rav's authority now, but it's not as simple as them just proclaiming her the ruler. I mean, technically speaking that's all it would take, but you're right in believing that it's a more complicated and formal process. They were just showing their support of her to go through with it, now that there's nothing in her way and no reason not to.
>>1589839>They were just showing their support of her to go through with it, now that there's nothing in her way and no reason not to.Ok, and what exactly does she need to do now, and how long would that take? Do we need to go back to Arba first?Also, is there anything that she wants to do at the moment? And does she know what that red light could have been?
>>1589878And what hapened to Peshde?
>>1589839What does she need to do now? We'll back her up and try to help BUT! We could really use a shower and a good restAnd is she going to do with everyone following her now? Start building in Arba's or the lesser leader's place?
>>1589916>Start building in Arba's or the lesser leader's place?I think we will go to conquest, probably the city elves by the coast outside of the forest.
>>1589878>>1589916Well there's definitely something she would like to do, with you, at the moment. Fighting alongside you to victory awoke quite a passion in her for you, she even lets you know about as subtly as an orc can. If only you weren't both in the middle of a victory aftermath. Or rather, she doesn't even care about that, but if only it wouldn't diminish the reputation a little.As for what needs to be done now, it's a pretty detailed, but straightforward and understood process. She summarizes it for you, basically declaring herself chieftess and after a test of power, and remaining unopposed, then an official tribe is formed. After that, well being that she is the daughter of the great orc Khan, she has a claim better than any other to that title. That might be a bit much for her though. She can explain in more detail later if you want, when she wants to find out what the deal is with you and your mother, but for now that can all wait. >>1589916Tehnically it can be done anywhere, but she thinks it probably for the best to gather everyone left here, figure out the situation better and determine everyone's opinions and allegiances, and then head back to Arba's town so that all four groups are combined, before going through the process.>>1589885Peshde is fine, she just flew away when the trap was sprung and waited up in one of the giant trees. At a distance she saw some of what happened, and congratulates you on your victory she supposes. At the very least she doesn't regret going with you, since she can't imagine a much safer group to be with, other than the elves perhaps.When you return with Peshde though, you encounter a bit of strife taking place. Nearly coming to blows, there seems to be several ongoing arguments between anyone with a religious care, or position (like priest or shaman) about what transpired during the battle. They're all arguing about their own religious interpretations, which they at least are all in unison about it being divine in nature, over what can only be guessed at as a miracle, your victory.
>>1589986>Be flustered Lets help her getting everyone ready for travel then Search for any coaches or something to transport the wounded in Once every thing is set we can all leave back to Arba's
>>1590016Well you can work around that effort in mind but it's not something you'd manage right away. The aftermath, of sorting everything out here with everyone, will probably take a few days. For everyone to heal up, to figure out the stance everyone has, to pack everything up and then to move.Also there is a concern about the big orc's remaining group. He came here with mostly his warriors and the like. Most non-combatants though were left back at his settlement though, and any survivors or those whom successfully retreated would return there. Rav doesn't think it to be a serious threat, but she could see it remaining as a persistent thorn in your sides. Your call if you want to go after them and end it once and for all, or just accept this victory and focus on gathering all the strength that has been won.
>>1590016>Search for any coaches or something to transport the wounded in Is there any wounded? Even with out potion.>Once every thing is set we can all leave back to Arba'sWithout even a night of rest?Also, she wants to gather and deal with things here first:>>1589986>but she thinks it probably for the best to gather everyone left here, figure out the situation better and determine everyone's opinions and allegiances, and then head back to Arba's town so that all four groups are combined, before going through the process.
>>1590033It's not our call Rav, she's the leader here It her call whether we go or not, we'll support either one If she wants to let them live we can get started on organizing the group. Give her a kiss too
>>1589986>Or rather, she doesn't even care about that, but if only it wouldn't diminish the reputation a little.*Get flustered*>Well, is there anything that can be done so it doesn't hurt your reputation?Anons fine with public orc smut?
>>1590061>It's not our call Rav, she's the leader here >It her call whether we go or not, we'll support either oneI would suggest dealing with them, and taking the chance to add any greenie group that we find, and she is kind of giving us the choice, so...Well, we would have to rest some days anyway.
>>1590064If it doesn't hurt her rep, sure >>1590071If she's really feeling either choice let's go kill/recruit them
>>1590082>not really feeling
>>1590061>>1590071She would rather consolidate first, but she's asking you because she trusts your wisdom. Even if she's literally in charge, she'd always like your opinion since it was your guidance that got you all to this point, since first meeting.Either way you give her a kiss and stumbling over your words ask if there's maybe something that could be done instead? With a sly smile she says she can think of something, later tonight.Though, probably it will change plans if you're going to press an effort to seek out and deal with the remainder of the big orc's tribe. Some sort of plan might be needed, and even a split up of the overall group, since obviously you're not going to move as one consolidated group here, to go after the remaining one. Something like, where the non-combatants return to Arba's town, with sufficient guards, and you and a fighting force go after the last enemies? Or something like that, whatever idea you can come up with.
>>1590165Consolidation First then Send some messengers with the news, there's a new chieftess and Khanum, the false chief has been defeated, those who wish to join can do so and those too patriotic to the chief can find another place to flee to
>>1590170>KhanumI think that was just the heat of the moment. But I am not sure if she can actially become one, though I wouldn't be surpiced.Anyway, what about sending the non-fighting greenies with enough guards (though I asume that all grenies know how to defend themselves to an extent) back to Arba, with a messager ahead to tell them of our victory, or how the big orc died and the other leader joined us, amd how we went to settle things with the remaining orcs.Also, let's talk with the priest and shamans, what do they think that happened?
>>1590170>>1590182You might be able to manage a halfway point, where you send some armed persons back with the non-combatants. In fact, this seems as good a chance as any to send the newly allied lesser leader back with them (since most are his people) to meet Arba and get used to one giant greenie settlement. Meanwhile, you and some combatants hunt down the last remainders of the fourth group. Only, Rav wanted to return to the town and undergo the process of declaring herself chieftess and form a proper tribe, and from there then start solving problems. You can make a good case to her though, that she doesn't want her rule to begin with any outstanding issues, like this remnant fourth group.For now though you're naturally curious about what took place with the combat and the victory, and figure talking with the religious folks might answer some questions. It just convolutes everything though, as you can find the highest authority present in and around the fort on each race's faith, a high priest, a respected shaman and an actual goblin theologian. None of them however, can agree on the matter and are having heated debates about it. It seems each race believes you were blessed by a god of their own faith, and none of them any fertility deity if you were wondering. The orcs believe you gained the favor of their orcish war god, the goblins believe you drew the attention of their goblin goddess of luck, and the trolls believe you received the blessing of their troll god of triumph. They can sort of agree that whatever it was, it was probably only one deity whom gave their favor, but no one can agree on which god it was.
>>1590349Send the noncombants with enough guards away then and prepare to March on the other town if that's what she wants
>>1590349And ask the religious folk which God is related to red
>>1590584>Send the noncombants with enough guards away thenI am sure that is in case if we go for the remaining orcs, but>prepare to March on the other town if that's what she wantsindicates you want to do otherwise.
>>1590598The opposing town The big orc town
>>1590590Red would most strongly indicate the orc god of war, but they can roughly agree that color doesn't mean certainty. They're gods, so something as simple as color, they can utilize whatever they want.>>1590584>>1590598Very well then, you speak with Rav on your idea and agreeing with it, she says she'll start getting the preparations done then. The newly allied leader with lead his group back with some support, while you head on with a combat force to deal with the remainder of the fourth group. From here it will take about another three days, but you can probably set out the day after tomorrow, since tomorrow is going to be a lot of deliberation on where folks stand.In the meantime then, it's late afternoon, evening before long. Most everyone who needs it has been healed up, and with much thanks and respect, many folks are seeking to give you gifts and services as thanks. Various goods, pillaged loot, trinkets and armaments, things of that nature. Even an offering of a war bride or two, and an offer of a roll in the hay so to speak by one fighter you helped as thanks.You've got awhile to yourself though before dinnertime which you understand will be a victory feast so that will occupy your time and attention. Until then though, anything you're interested in doing?
>>1590882Hang with Rav if she isn't too busyOr if she is too busy just sit back somewhere relatively quiet and wait for the feast to happen Just relax now that we have that chance Think about how much better this is compared to life with the castle
>>1590882>Even an offering of a war bride or two, and an offer of a roll in the hay so to speak by one fighter you helped as thanks.I am sure Rav wouldn't aprobe of that, so no.I don't know about the war brides, but maybe accepting would be too many for us at the moment.So, >>1590897 seconding.Also, walk around the town? See if you can help in something, see how things are around? Nothing to pressing, just relax while doing so.
>>1590913She probably wouldn't care that much to be honest, same as if you had on your own, taken a war bride. But anyway, for now you busy yourself just about town. Rav isn't extremely busy, but you think she might like a chance to do things on her own, so people can get the feel for her as a ruler. So trying to find something to do yourself, at least one thing for sure as several folks come to you asking to kiss their babies or things of that nature, thinking you a blessed individual. Of particular interest perhaps to you though, is the matter of what to be done with the members of the big orc's group whom were left behind or captured. There's a fair few gathered to a couple locations, and there's ongoing debate about what to do with them. Some want to kill them to make an example, some want to subject them to servitude or comfort work after defeat, while others think forgiving them is good now that Rav seeks greenie unity. Your opinion would hold sway though since you did win them this battle at least.Even if you wish to stay impartial though, two persons of definite interest are among the prisoners that you should probably do something about. One is the big orc's cousin and the other is a daughter of his. Both were obviously close to him, and so were separated specifically until something can be decided on what's to be done with them.
>>1590966They'll have to earn back their place, put them to work for a few weeks/months before forgiving them whatever the orcs/Rav think fitting And approach them, see if they're injured and ask Rav what should we do with them? We could put them to work, another maid and trainer would do us good If she's okay with that
>>1590966They fought defending that they believed in and their leader, even if he standed against our unity.Some resentments may prevail from the 2 sides, but we must not forget why we fought for. More than enough people have died because of this. So I say that we forgive them, though they should obviously help. (Though by helping I mean pulling their wheight.)Obviously, keep an eye on them, and make sure they don't escape to the remaining group or try to revolt.What do you choce, anons?Also, I am not sure about what to do with the daughter and cousin, probably will do once we deal with the remaining orcs. Maybe offer one leadership of their group if they join us? I would like to know their opinion of us first. So, talk with them? See what they offer/plan/want to do?
>>1591008>We could put them to work, another maid and trainer would do us good >If she's okay with thatEh, I don't want that. That would be just weird.Maybe we could make the cousin into the leader of their people? Or the daughter? Difficult to know if we know nothing of them.I am fine with a little of work first, though.
>>1591016Lets ask Rav what should we do with them thenAfter talking with them too
>>1591008>>1591012Well it's a matter Rav would expect you to be able to handle on your own. You can't just go asking after her for everything.As for the captives themselves, a fair few are injured and were only afforded mundane care, so you expect that some will die of their injuries. You could afford them magical healing with the bottle though.On the topic of the two relatives of the big orc, you can talk with them. His cousin is a pretty tough looking guy and still loyal, he could cause trouble if just let go or freed unsupervised, maybe in time and with work though he might accept the situation. Especially so, if you manage to defeat the remaining group. As for the daughter, she's not a combatant and was just brought along to help out with things like organizing the cooking and cleaning, and other logistics of the warband. She's upset about her father but is cooperative in the face of assumed death.
>>1591062Just enough for them not to die bur prioritize friendlies if there still are any And in that case just put them to work in making houses and the wall for a month then allow them back in inside the houses they built Keep the cousin under capture tho, and give the daughter the same deal as the others unless she has can come to up with something else
>>1591062>Well it's a matter Rav would expect you to be able to handle on your own. You can't just go asking after her for everything.No problem.>>1591062>You could afford them magical healing with the bottle though.Do so, fits with the whole orc unity theme.>His cousin is a pretty tough looking guy and still loyal.Well, keep an eye on hin until then, then. We will show him that we can unite the orcs despite being human.>And in that case just put them to work in making houses and the wall for a month then allow them back in inside the houses they builtAren't we going to other lands for conquest, though? And aren't we leaving this city?We still, having houses and defences while we prepare is good, so if you mean that I have no problem.>>1591079>Keep the cousin under capture tho, and give the daughter the same deal as the others unless she has can come to up with something elseSo we put the 2 relatives under vigilance/capture till we deal with the remaining group? I am ok with that.
>>1591079Well over the previous hours you'd seen to no one dying who could be saved, of your own people, so you wouldn't be putting captives before allies.As for the big orc's daughter, she offers maybe to help you in dealing with the remaining group? If you promise her to be merciful to them, since her other family is back there, still, her mother and such.>>1591093>>1591079Well it's a starter for labor to put them through to earn a pardon. It's not like upon returning to Arba's town, you're going to set out for invading the very next day.So to deal with the captives you help who you can with magical healing, and then have the two relatives of the big orc put on watch. That occupies the rest of your time, at least enough that you notice people heading past and gathering elsewhere excitedly. From what you understand the victory feast is being set up so you might want to head over and see what's what.
>>1591231>If you promise her to be merciful to them, since her other family is back there, still, her mother and such.>>1591231>From what you understand the victory feast is being set up so you might want to head over and see what's what.Sure.
>>1591242Forgot to answer to the forst quote.The answer is also yes.
>>1591231YesGo in and sit next to Rav WaitWhat? She helps us deal with the other group and we show mercy, then what? What does she expect back or what do we gain from her? What we're getting from the other orcs is expanding and housing for them
>>1591252>>1591246Well she knows that if you're going to the remaining group, then if you defeat them you'll likely bring them into the fold, like you did with the group here. She'll help you out by showing you the way and how best to get at it, she just wants you to be merciful with the group when you defeat and incorporate them.At rate you go to the feast being set up, many gathered tables, many made from scrap wood from the battle, and one great long one. An actual proper table, which you expect the most important folks to sit at. You were going to sit by Rav of course but she would rather you sit at the opposite long end, each of you at the head. She wouldn't mind you sitting beside of course, but she thinks it would give a better message to those there, and also folks can converse with and congratulate you, and get to know you better without you hanging onto her arm basically.If you want it though, she's fine with wherever you'd like to sit.
>>1591270I say that we sit at the other head.
>>1591270To the other end then
>>1591280>>1591296Have to duck out for a few hours, dinner and stuff, but will return here to continue with the feast! In the meantime if you have plans or questions, feel free to discuss I guess.
>>1591339Would mom accept us returning to give her a child and then leave? So we get her off our back? That way she has another heir on the way and the risk of more attacks or mercs from her dissappears
>>1591356Where the fuck did that come from? Don't get me wrong, I'm into it but i dont want to senselessly insert my fetish into this just cause, which is why ask if is that even possible? Would op allow that? >>1591339Would you allow that op?
>>1591361WellShe wants an heir and we turned out exactly the opposite of what she wanted, we've shown we're capable enough to strike out on our own so she shouldn't worry about us, plus if she wants a worthy heir it's should be from her own blood, pure blood and all of that Like the old monarchies irl it would have her strength and possibly our intelligence. Both of both worlds. Take what she learned from raising us and use it on the next one, do exactly the opposite she did with us and let the kid live a normal life with normal friends and never try to force him into stuff.
>>1591379Your reasons makes sense but at the end of the day it all depends on op and if he's willing to let us go through with it? Also if I stop posting my data ran out
>>1591280>>1591296You sit at the other end of the biggest table, a good distance from Rav. You'd rather you were closer to her, but if this is better for things then so bet it. You soon find out at least one reason against it though, with the rowdy drinking going on, if you were in the middle of it all you'd likely get a black eye if not die from alcohol poisoning. It's also kinder on Peshde's senses whom sits with you.That is to say, everyone who's anyone is drinking, but it's much heavier on Rav's end where person after person come to congratulate her and ask for a toast to speak and such. You by contrast get almost as many people coming to congratulate you, but most have the good sense or are sober enough to remember you are human and so probably couldn't take nearly as much booze. You do get a few smarter types though who come to gather around you, and religious types, replacing anyone whom leaves your end on their own. The former, are the closest thing to intellectuals of the newly allied group, from folks who are half-greenie and half-some other race, to even some non-greenie residents who live with them, like an elven scholar fellow, a human traveler and explorer, a birdfolk writer, and a kobold skald. They each have their own reasons and stories for being here, as do the half-greenies and just smarter (though fewest) full-greenies. The latter group are the religious folk, whom want to know about you and ask you things, get to know you better. Why it is, that you drew the attention of some god today, what sort of fate you could have to warrant that? These are all almost entirely greenies, save for one elven priest here like the other non-greenies.
>>1591356>>1591361>>1591379>>1591392I'm with light green ID player, where the fuck did this come from?I suppose under extremely specific circumstances, and if literally 100% player unity was reached on the matter? I would extremely reluctantly, but possibly consider such a course of action?It's just such an outlandish decision which would require extremely particular requirements, that I think it would just be a waste of effort? If you're so set on getting the queen off your back, why not instead just get her a grandchild replacement she'd be content with to take in your place, if you simply want to just replace yourself? She's still young enough that if the main character were to have a child today, the queen is still within the age that it could be her own child naturally. Or on the other end of the spectrum, if you're so eager to be rid of her entirely, why not either just leave this continent behind and maybe fake your death too, or kill her instead? Either one, if you hate her so much, would get her off your back.Basically, what you're asking I suppose is technically possible, and if total player unison wanted it I'd begrudgingly allow it? But the amount of effort it would take to line up all those specific requirements just right for it to happen, there would be infinitely easier ways to get her off your case for good if that's all you care about.
>>1592311And now to beat my head against a wall for writing and even considering allowing such a scenario.
>>1592261>Why it is, that you drew the attention of some god today, what sort of fate you could have to warrant that?Eh, can we answer that all we did was believe in our words? We wanted to unite the orcs, goblings, and trolls, help them become stronger.If anything, saying that should raise our rep a lot.Also, is there a way of knowing if it was a blessing or a one time thing (miracle)? And can the shamans/priests do tests or something to see what god or goddess was the one? Or if it was us and/or Rav?
>>1592320That's a good point, you can roll if you like to see how your response goes over. It can't hurt you in this case, just how much better it might be.If your words are true though and you believed in what you were doing was for the good of the greenies, then that at least makes sense why you'd attract the attention of a greenie god. They just can't figure out why a human would manage such a miracle.There are definitely ways they can know for sure, each having their own different ideas and tests. It would just be up to you, if you want, to undergo them.
>>1592320Also, ask them about their gods/goddess?What would it mean to be blessed with the goblin goddess of luck, troll god of triumph or orcish war god?
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>1592340>There are definitely ways they can know for sure, each having their own different ideas and tests. It would just be up to you, if you want, to undergo them.Well, that would depend on how are the test like, so, how are they?Also, rolling.
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>1592350Support, to not totally look unintelligent.
>>1592311>would require extreme particular requirementIsn't that the case with every single course of action though? This one is just more easy in my eyes, I don't think she'll allow a grandchild if she doesn't like the girl right? That's what happened with our friends and crushes? For a grandchild we would need to wait 9 months and the consent of the mother, leaving the continent requires traveling too much android risking a lot with bandits and such, the cover of faking our death could be easily blown out and killing her is just much trouble. Those are too complicated, here we just go in, proposition, do it and leave It's a quick permanent solution, at least that's how I see itAnd if she's still in having kids age what's stopping her? We've proven we're too troublesome and not happy with life in the castle,she's better off trying againThat's just my take on things Do we hate her for giving her a child? Wouldn't we love her enough to actually care for the trouble we cause and consider giving her another child so she stops worrying about us?
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>1592350>>1592366Supporting
>>1592350>>1592366>>1592371>84Well it's not like you gain a unanimous support for you as their uniter and king, but you gain a deep respect from all those gathered at the feast, within hearing distance or within the range of spread of gossip. To those getting to know you personally at least, or hearing about you from a friend or other, you've managed to dispel any doubts that you could be a schemer or untrue to your goals for the greenies.As for the matter of the blessing, there are different tests that could be done to hopefully prove it, yes. Each priest or shaman of each god has their own way, ranging from getting in a fight to winning a game with the odds against you, things which would test the aspect of the god in question. To be blessed by those different gods could mean different things, like if you were blessed by the war god then it would explain why you were able to fight, charge, and lead your forces to victory. To be blessed by the goblin goddess of luck, would explain why you were able to snatch victory from the very jaws of defeat and turn what should have been a brutal defeat into a heroic victory. And to be blessed by the troll god of triumph, would explain this as just another step down your own path to ultimate victory. Different interpretations of the same result; success.Interestingly, none of them are of a mind that it could have anything to do with any fertility god, so that's an odd detail that you could bring up.
>>1592377>Interestingly, none of them are of a mind that it could have anything to do with any fertility god, so that's an odd detail that you could bring up.How dangerous, if at all, would the word of that spreading be?
>>1592369So just find a girl she likes, infinitely easier than trying to convince her of this. Even just looking at any potential women you currently already know, Ragna for example is probably a woman she'd approve of. Human, a strong capable warrior and individual, and carrying some powerful violence gene that could pass to any children? Automatically that's easier than convincing the queen for something.And all the other options would in every way be easier than what you have in mind, even killing her. Going by your logic of returning, convincing her of this situation and then with her guard down, perhaps trying to kill her. Because this wouldn't at all be like every other action.As for her own reasons for not just having a replacement kid, she probably has her own mix of misgivings like she had for a partner for you over the years. Chief among them finding a man she'd be interested in that for, though you know her biggest reason of all was that she put all her bets solely on you. You're her pride and joy and her hopes and dreams rest on you, which is why she doesn't, and perhaps can't just replace you. At least not as easy as that. And maybe she has her own other reasons.As for the last bit, I'm not sure how to respond since I don't follow exactly what you're suggesting. In the same way as you may love her enough to care about the hurt you cause her, you also love her enough to not consider something as debauched as you have in mind.
>>1592377Just tell them of our blessing, we are among friendlies and under Rav's good graces and arms
>>1592399Meh, if no actual problems with that.Comment on how we seem to have a blessing from the wild god of fertility.
>>1592396Wat, Ragna? Even knowing the berserker trait? Is Mom dumb? That's going to be hard af to control But I don't want to kill her honestly , she's still Mom, we'll just have to convince her to get another kid via another man or let us give her that kid
>>1592396>>1592422>I don't wanna kill her honestly, she's still Mom Yeah And it's clear that all her bets were wrong seeing how we've turned out, she's better off trying again because we're not coming back permanently after this orc bussines.
>>1592434Shit, come back later after we establish our nation. Let the poor woman see her grandkids.
>>1592387It may be dangerous if it was something you'd embraced. Like if you became a fertility prophet yourself and wandered the world spreading faith and sharing the blessing. In that case, you'd probably gain such a reputation as to draw negative attention. If it's just something that is a detail about you though and you don't really act on it, then word might spread around but it probably wouldn't generate much buzz beyond some curiosity and passing interest/fancy. You're not going to draw the attention of some evil cult looking to use you for nefarious purposes, or some poorly ruler who can't have a child, but you might get the occasional person from among your own people seeking help or favor of the blessing. Probably in the same vein as one might seek out a priest for divine help on something occasionally.>>1592408>>1592399You decide, at least among the folks gathered to you, mainly the religious ones, to share the detail that you've been blessed before and by some completely different god. Leaving out the explicit details, you relate the account of you drawing some fertility god's blessing by your your little intimate exploits with both Ruta and Gwen, and things like both the giant tree and the divine tree.Not all of them listening are on the same page, but those who are, seem quite shocked or dumbstruck. It's the elven priest who finally speaks up, saying it's rare enough for a mortal to draw the attention of one god for one miracle. But drawing the attention of multiple, and for multiple miracles? That's practically unheard of, in the realm of actual legends and heroes. They discuss this a lot, among themselves, but if it's true then they're very curious what it is about you that has the potential to draw divine attention like that. Maybe it really is just a one in a million chance, but if it isn't, then they believe your fate must be complicated. Certainly, having the potential to draw both positive and negative attention, they think until perhaps you know better that it may be best if you don't go singing from the rooftops about this news.
>>1592440>they think until perhaps you know better that it may be best if you don't go singing from the rooftops about this news.Agree.And for now, enjoy the feast.Converse with people, eat food, drink (stay sover enough to think straigth and don't be too affected).Basically, do what you would do in a feast.Oh, and see how Rav is doing. Nothing special, just soare a glance (and she is litteraly in front of you)
>>1592422I was just giving Ragna as an example of a lady you already know without having to look around, whom the queen would approve of. And the berserker genes? You kidding? She'd love that.But that's just an example, again, of a lady you at present know whom it could work with possibly. If you were to look around you could probably find someone the queen would think is just perfect.>>1592434>And it's clear that all her bets were wrong seeing how we've turned out,If anything the exact opposite is true. Left to your own devices with no prior experience yourself, in just a few months you've basically united the orcs and may soon go conquering entire nations. All signs point to the queen raising you and you turning out exactly how she would want, only her wishes were that you'd inherit and control/lead her own power rather than creating your own.So think again, is there anyone better for her to have placed all her bets on, than her own son capable of the feats you've managed?
>>1592482Oh shit, yeah We're still not going home until she either dies of old age or stops being so manipulative. I'm guessing she's going to stop after seeing what we did?
>>1592487>I'm guessing she's going to stop after seeing what we did?You wouldn't expect her to ever stop, but there's a good case to be made for her not disowning you if you just keep doing what you're doing. Maybe eventually she dies and passes her reign to you? And it would just be adding her small (by comparison) power to yours? Again, she'll always try to get you back since she knows she knows best, but she wouldn't disinherit you if you on your own happened to approach, match, or eclipse her own achievements.
>>1592482Would mom approve of Rav? Would Ragna accept having our kid then sending it to Mom? Maybe her too? In exchange to just let is be free
>>1592495>Rav No, no orcs have her approval!>Would Ragna accept having our kid then sending it to Mom? Maybe her too?You have no way of knowing that, it would be something to find out, not guess at.>>1592480>>1592477So you thank the religious folks there for their help and opinions, and overtime try to change the subject back to more lively matters. No one is in disagreement with that, and before long you're all doing your own part of the festivities of the feast.You try to keep it under wraps, remembering your last fiasco with the drinking game between you and Zela, Ragna and Nime. Looking over from time to time though you notice Rav has just been feasting to her hearts content the whole time, celebrating with all whom seek and congratulate her, and she's dreadfully drunk because of it. You don't expect the feast to last all night, so by the end you might need to get some help and carry her to proper accommodations if she passes out or can't on her own.
>>1592506Once Rav is safely in bed, snuggle up to her and sleep also.
>>1592506Start gathering people to help us and stay close to her as the feast dies down
>>1592506Continue? Are we voting for something?Talk with Pershde? How is she doing?

lolThat is all I have to say about the last votes.lol
>>1592521Well if you wanted to do anything else you can, but otherwise you can just ride things out till the feast dies down on its own. At the very least you ask Peshde about herself and how she's doing. She says she's keeping up at least, or trying to, and is happy for you. She doesn't want to distract you on your night of victory though, from all those whom are interested in meeting and greeting you.>>1592524None of them are present.>>1592548Why do you want to torment yourself lol?Either way, maybe it's the alcohol or the time apart, but while waiting for things to die down your mind starts to wander. You think about your experiences with Rav, those kisses earlier and some plans she had for tonight. Hoo boy, that's something to look forward to, especially if you may well marry this woman. Once the feast dies down though, as you'd expected, Rav is just wasted and passed out in the table while even others still continue around her and she just snores with her face on the table in a puddle of booze or drool. You think it for the best to get her someplace better, and with the help of some of your new friends you help up poor Rav and carry her shambling off to someplace better to sleep, with a din of cheers and goodnights behind you. Eventually the newly allied leader notices you, and in a nice show of gratitude, says you can have his quarters in the fort for the rest of the time you're all here, before departing. He has someone show the way, and eventually some ten minutes later you reach the room. Pretty nice all things considered, a cozy room in one of the higher areas of the mostly wooden fort, overlooking much of the area. You set Rav down and tell her to wait while you get her some water or something and maybe help her out of her messy clothes. By the time you return though she's already fallen over in bed, passed out asleep again. Some of the folks whom helped you up here ask then if you don't mind, if they stay a little while in the other room. They were having some interesting conversations and ask you to join them if you like. They're just interested to see what the leader's room is like, and it's a nice change to get away form the feast for maybe half an hour before heading to sleep themselves.
>>1592603Nah, we're tired tooGet Rav some new clothes and take off the dirty ones, she can change tomorrow morning, bring some cheese and bread with a pitcher of water Lock the door for good measure and get in bed with her
>>1592603>>1592548>67You figure no harm in joining them, but while sitting with them in the adjoining... well, a living room if you had to guess, your mind starts to wander again. You'd been fantasizing about Rav and how you might spend some intimate time together at some point. After seeing her passed out on the table, and during helping her, hearing her loudly belch a few times from all the drinking, your mind isn't too keen to return to those thoughts just yet. So it wanders still, and you're a little drunk yourself, but of all things it settles on Nime. Maybe not so strange as only a couple days prior you saw her naked as the day she was born thanks to strip poker, and your thoughts wander to her body. Some nice, soft memories of it, but really though>Dat assAnd if not perfect enough, that little tufty tail to adorn it on top, like a cherry on a cream topped desert. Hoo boy, like your thoughts about Rav, that too is getting your blood going. Maybe better just to let those feelings settle down, no need to torment yourself!
>>1592616>bring some cheese and bread with a pitcher of waterIsn't she asleep?Anyway, snuggle and sleep.
>>1592620Geez that's hotCalm little prince Junior down before joining Rav after >>1592616
>>1592634That's for tomorrow
>>1592635TryBig fat thicc prince father king almighty We're blessed remember? By a fertility Goddess
>>1592634>>1592635>>1592636>>1592652Well you try not to spring a leak in your pants so to speak, and just listen to the few folks conversing. One though seems still interested in talking to you though, and interested in you it would seem. A Darfellan you learn from her, which you right away ask because of her very unique appearance, tall and fit, two-tone black and white, sleek skin and seemingly aquatic you'd guess with appropriate features like webbed hands and feet. She's quite friendly and interesting herself, but she's got an interest in you that even in your inebriated state you can tell. It seems not only the greenies like a victorious conqueror.
>>1592698Wot>Like right now? Before we do anything, what are you after? Just a fling?
>>1592708>Before we do anything, what are you after? Just a fling?
>>1592708Don't let the small head talk anonCheck both with the glass thing
>>1592708Is there any better time than now, she asks? She saw your exploits today, and saw your friend in the next room how that didn't pan out. She doesn't want to get in the way of anything there, but she figures you deserve a little something extra and while she's here, she wouldn't mind a romp with a conqueror blessed by the gods. Even if it's early in his career. >>1592718There's no reason not to of course, as you pull out your magic lens just in case. She looks completely mundane though, just a magic ring it looks like but those are fairly common, and she seems like an adventurer anyway. That would explain why she happened by here in the first place.
>>1592839Okay But if possible do it within eyeshot of the room or in Rav's room's bathroom we can't leave Rav like that, there could be patriotic orcs about and I'm not risking itAnd make sure she takes that ring off before getting to it

Rolled 32 (1d100)>>1592865Rolling but my rolls have been pretty shit lately
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>1592839Sure go for it
>>1592860>>1592865>>1592866>>1592952>86While trying not to let on what's going on between you two, you figure out where this might go down. She laughs at the idea of a bathroom quickie when this place probably doesn't even have one and says this room is fine, just give it a bit. So you sit together in anticipation, feeling a little bad about Rav but you don't think she'd mind too much. After some tens of minutes and the checking in of a servant, the other folks sitting with you both figure that's their cue to leave and will continue things elsewhere. They say their goodnights and wish both you and Rav well again, and soon enough it's just you and the big orca-like lady. You'd followed to the door to see the others off, but with the door shut you feel her presence behind you as she brings her arms around you. Turning to meet her, she says she thought they'd never leave and lowers some to give you a kiss. She's big so the size difference is a tad awkward, but no more than with Rav or Arba. Pinning you against the door a little, she's in a position to control the pace but you're not so easily pushed around and give it your all in return. She probably wanted to take things slow so when she pulls back, she's visibly surprised with a toothy grin and an excited look. Her breathing heavier now, she seems to quickly consider something, before loosening her shirt and taking it off to toss it aside. You're met with the impressive sight of her powerful torso bare, the stark black and white color contrast a distinct but alluring sight nonetheless. She draws close to continue kissing as she brings your hands to her body, a strangely smooth and soft sensation but firm all the while, and she too starts to feel you up and goes for your pants. Probably what she wanted to be something light and easy which would get you going and then maybe move to an easier spot in the room, has turned unexpectedly passionate and happening right here against the door. Definitely she didn't expect it, as your feeling her up gives increasing breaks in the kissing for gasps and vocalizations from her, till finally she has to stifle an actual moan and takes a deep breath, needing to rest her head down on yours for a second as she leans against the door for support of her quivering frame. You can feel her heavy breathing, her powerful frame weak (if only unexpectedly, for a moment) to your touch, as she looks around and back to the bedroom embarrassed. She doesn't want to bother your friend Rav but says if you continue with her like this she won't be able to help it, maybe it wouldn't hurt to duck out together for a little bit? Even just another room close by, ideally one with a bed. Or even just a storage room, or a closet, she doesn't really care anymore. Just someplace you don't have to worry about making noise together.
>>1593049Yeah, let's find other room with bed in it
>>1593077You agree to find another room, so exiting this one quietly together, with one arm across her chest she leads you through the corridor of the upper area of the fort. Checking each room as you go along together, you find one a little ways down where some guy passed out trying to work the door as a pull when it's a push. And to be honest, the construction here isn't that great to begin with so it's not even a sound or secure door. He's out though so you don't want to bother him, and stepping over together you enter into the room. Small, but a bed there is and some simple other furniture. No light but the window to the outside provides some soft glow from the rest of the fort and camp below, some celebrations still going on. In the dark, even as your eyes adjust you'd not be able to make out the woman in black, if it weren't for the portions of her body where the skin is in white contrast. Looking at you as you both lean back against the door, having checked over the room, she asks how you want to do this then? Before she'd thought to lead the pace, but she knows now that you've got some experience to you. You'll have to remember to thank Arba for showing you the ropes better, next time you see her. For now though, you've got the room to yourselves.
>>1593117Then lets have fun together
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>1593117And a roll
>>1593128Looks like she will not be pregnant
>>1593128Since this is for pregnancy, can I roll for performance?Also, how does pregnancy work?
>>1593144Anyway, lower her on the bed and lovingly make love.Don't forget the kisses, carreses, gropes, and all of that, but don't forget to keep up down below either, show passion while doing so.
>>1593149We already got an 83 for performance? Probably won't be able to roll
>>1593128And i dont think the roll was needed
