Taking the orc subjugation poster I bring it to Qala to get it stamped."Orcs, huh. There's been many sightings of monsters and even a few skirmishes here and there ever since that demon king showed," she said."Demon king?" I questioned.Qala gives back the poster to me, "Yeah, he's been attacking kingdoms non-stop, especially Piladium since it's the biggest territory wise. Anyways, the Kleinel Forest isn't too far from Aliasa. Make sure to cut off the orcs' ear for proof too.""Nn, thanks," I say, waving goodbye to Qala."Good luck," she says back.Previous thread: >>2859940Fuuma Nagaro's Status:https://pastebin.com/j89Sdf9T
Just as Qala said, the Kleinel Forest wasn't for from the city. It was about a 30 minute walk from Aliasa starting at the gate, and even if you were no where near it you could still see the treeline bordering the main road. It was an ordinary forest, the trees and shrubs overgrown and thick as they lean over the established path.Fenrir exits my shadow, "We're looking for orcs, right?""Yes, sister," Yoksha says. "They're the ones with the pig-like face, correct?""That's what I expect them to look like, they shouldn't be too hard to find," I said."I'll watch the rear then, master," Fenrir said."Good, let's get going.">Roll 1d100

>>2871196>>2871210>>2871213>4With Yoshka and Fenrir watching my back I went deeper into the forest. It was weird, walking down the path there was a scarce amount of sound from birds or animals. No that's wrong, there was no sound. The forest was dead quiet with my boots making the only audible noise.*Rustle, rustlerustle, rustle*/i]Behind me there was a slight rustling. It sounded...odd, like something or someone was walking carefully. Then it hit me."Yoshka, Fenrir, we have company!" I alarmed.As I said that a huge amount of orcs jumped from the thicket. Bashing my head with their club, knocking me out...>>2871280could've gotten this roll
Darkness...It's cold, the ground's hard...Waking up, an intense pain flooded my head. In reaction I touch the top of my skull, blood marking my hand.Concerned, I felt around my head some more. It doesn't look bad, it certainly isn't gushing but it's a pretty bad wound.Looking around I was in a cave. Torches lit the eroded walls as I was in a room with other woman. Their bodies were bruised, some of them crying while others sit lifelessly. My gaze was attracted to their crotch, a strange liquid running down from...oh fuck. This is where the orcs live right?>Use heal>Try to escape>Talk with one of woman>Other?/Write-in

>>2871362>Perhaps we should get some more defensive skillsHonestly we just need to get a lot of shit.
Using heal on myself my wound went away, the blood stayed though. Now for the more important question, where's Yoksha and Fenrir?"Fenrir...Fen?" I whispered but there was no reply. She must be separated.>Try to escape>Talk with one of the woman>Other?/Write-in.

>>2871460>Try to escape
I get on my feet, leaving the room and the woman within it. Carefully, I tread through the darkened cave, the torch lights being my only guide. Eventually I ran into a fork, two paths going opposite ways.>Go left>Go right
>>2871552>>Go leftWould love to throw an stone to both way to measure the distance, though may be dangerous.
>>2871552>Wait and see if there is any noise coming from either directionGuys we really don't want to walk in the wrong direction.
>>2871552Can't we use a Hex of tracking or sonar? If not then>Listen for any noise from either side.
I really think it was way to harsh to have us insta lose to just one orc club attack - we probably have insane defense and speed compared to them... I dont dig it..Are we really that weak?.. Doesn't defense do anything?Anyway, complaining aside>>2871552Go right.Gonna murder the fuck out of every damn orc in existence
>>2871655Considering that we had 2 crit fails from the way we rolled, I wouldn't be surprised if our defense and speed was lowered for every crit fail in comparison to their strength and speed.
I picked the left path, continuing my blind walk through the cave. Who knows how complex the paths are but I can only hope to not run into too much trouble. Getting hit in the head to be knocked out unconscious to find myself here is too much of a hassle to think about, for what I know I might've been here for hours.Running into a corner I crouched down, listening intently if there's anything up ahead."Human females brake so easily, wish they last longer, bughihi.""You got it wrong, the way they squeal is the reason why we enjoy them. Just look at her face, gehihi!"Up ahead I heard a conversation between two orcs while a woman wailed pleasurably in a mix between anguish and ecstasy. Makes me feel lucky that i wasn't played with before I woke up...>Ambush>Go back>Other?/write-in

I could probably take them out with my spells but most of my gear has been taken away. I only have my tunic and leather greaves on me, making me feel naked in a sense. Did they take my stuff? If so, where did they put it?Thinking about how they took away my possessions drives me into an irritated mood. The anger erupting again from my chest. No one steals from me.>Ambush>Go back and try the other path>Other?/Write-in

Also make future plans for an orc based plauge.Cant just kill them all yourself, but having previous world knowledge of disease + Magic = one extinction event coming right up.
>>2871721>>AmbushHorrid Grasp to cover their mouths and Dark Arrows to the head.
>>2871750We'd have to make sure that it's not contagious to anyone except orcs.But yes I wholeheartedly approve of this idea.
>>2871763Choose a disease unique to their physiology like say orc specific tusk rot, have it have a long incubation period and spread through their breath, water and food stuffs with dormant samples living in normal soil. Enchant to spread into the jawline and cause septic shock/death once the infection is established. Have to make sure it spreads to enough orcs to self sustain though, so you will need a powerful high atmosphere dispersal event to do the initial infection.Try not to get marriage proposals from the demon lord for this technically evil plot to genocide a species (even if they deserve it).
Jumping out I made my presence known to the two orcs, surprising them while they were still enjoying themselves with a woman. I looked at them, catching both orcs in my view."A human trying to escape, huh?" the orc bellowed.The other threw away the woman like a doll, "Looks like we'll need to treat her a lesson, bughih-- What?!"They were paralyzed by my evil eye, leaving them open for me. Casting dark arrow I fired at their heads, sending a volley towards them as they get punctured from the neck up. They fall, dead as anything can be as their corpses bleed out on the ground.>Continue>Go back to the other path>Check the woman>Other?/Write-in

At this point wouldn't be nice an invisibility skill?
>>2872358Yeah if we actually bothered to vote to practice with our Dark Magic to manipulate shadows and the like. But that's just me bitching about things I have no control over.
Using the new skill I got from Alia I made myself a sling and grabbed a few rocks heavy enough for a deadly blow. I checked the room before I continued but there was nothing much here, just some sticks and leaves piled in corners.Commanding the undead orcs to proceed in front of me I went into the next path, long and winding just like the last one. Up ahead there was noise, the sound of snorting and clanking resounding through the tunnels.Ordering the undead to stop I approached slowly to sneak a look. There was four orcs within a room, going through a pile of old gear, rusty swords, and wooded shields. Placed near the pile was my stuff, not yet touched by the orcs.>Command the undead orcs to attack>Use the sling>Release a volley of dark arrows>Other?/Write-in

Scrambling around the other two grabbed swords from the pile to defend against the undead while their brethren recovered.Silently, I readied dark arrow as the undead occupied the orcs. I released a volley directed towards the necks, killing the two orcs battling back the living corpses. They fall, letting the undead handle the rest of the work.The room now cleared I regained by possessions, equipping my gear back on.>Reanimate the orc bodies then continue>Continue right away>Other?/write-in

Now that there's six undead orcs at my command things will be a bit more easier."Arm yourselves," I commanded, pointing at the pile of leftover weapons and gear.They groaned, picking up rusted blades and worn down shield into their hands. Most of thestuff in the pile were too small for the undead but they eventually found something they coulduse."Good," I say. "Progress towards there," commanding them to move through the next tunnel ahead.Groaning again they did as I ordered, moving as a group with me following behind...*BOOM*The cave shook, the sound of pounding and squealing following shortly after. The orcs are probablyfighting something and it doesn't sound like they're winning. Making haste, I commanded the undead to move faster, coming across the cave's entrance faster thanexpected. Out in front of me was a small clearing full of orcs, Fenrir in her human form fighting against them whileYoshka rode on her tail.>Join the fight right away and command the undead orcs for an attack>Make Yoshka grow back to full size>Transform Fenrir>Release a continuous volley of dark arrows>Other?/Write-inCaptcha is getting on my fucking nerves

I say, shooting spell after spell and restricting the movements of the orcs.Horrid grasp may have the strength of a average man but coupled with marking hex, either hexing them to beincapacitated or purely damaging the orcs, they both restricted and whittle down the monstrous force. Darkarrow was also helpful in the means of artillery, forcing orcs to take cover while the front-line ravaged them. Eventuallythe massive tribe of orcs were no more, and what remained of them was one member of the force, restrained by the armsand presented to me at the foot of the cave."Master, I'm sorry we lost you," Fenrir said. "Luckily I found you by tracking your scent."Yoshka's head popped from the ground, "The sheer amount of orcs that ambushed us kept me and Fenrir busy whilethey dragged you off.""It's okay," easing them. "What matters is that we're okay."I then turn to the sole orc in front of me, kept down by my undead."I-I surrender, bughi. Please, spare me!

>>2873120Yeah, but what style should we go?Brand him with a deer skull shape and have him chant something along the lines of "Fear the wild goddess"?Brand him with something evoking the name Fuuma, or our alias Nemo?

>>2873179>>2873188You are right in the sense that it's rare for people to know any latin, but if it's at least a semi-famous saying we should be fine, seeing as Fuuma was often in the library before Yab's meddling.

He is now known as Eresh.""interesting, who's this goddess of dark?""Vamia, a ruling goddess of this world. Sister of Alia, Kordia, and Gratia.""Good, good. Now who are the demon king's generals?""Jago the earthshaker, a dragon-kin. Merilia, the songstress, a succubus. Gamedae the golden, a lion demi-human.And Titania, the queen of elves and Sylvanus.""Thank you, but it looks like you've exhausted your use. Be a good doll and do one dying favor for me~"Telling Fenrir to cut oft the orc's ear I use poison creation to fill him up with the most deadly toxin I can muster, pouring it intothe orc's bloodstream. The veins started to bloat all around the orc's body, stretching the tissue into the size of a cord string."Marking hex, burst," I said, personally molding the mark into a handprint with a deer's skull inside. "Activate till you meet with this 'Jago'. He'll love this present."The orc turns, walking into a direction away from the city."k-Kuwabara, kuwabara, see through the eyes of no one...Kuwabara, kuwabara, see through the eyes of no one...Kuwabara,kuwabara, the deer mother sings her lullaby..."The orc chanted my little song I implemented inside him, it'll be a shame to not see this Jago's face.__________Earned title [The Deer Mother]__________>(Cont.)
>>2873223Seeing off the poor soul, I turned my attention to other matters. The undead were done, handing me backmy bag full of orc ears."You looked like you were having fun, master," Yoksha said."I did, giving people presents is somewhat of a new joy now that I think about it," curving my lips into a slight grin.

>>2873290Question, Father Sheep. If this is too meta for you to answer that's cool, but I'm wondering if it's possible for us to combine elemental magics in this world? For example, controlling wood by using earth and water. Or, is it possible to manipulate any substance with pure mana and effort?
>>2873303ThisI would really like to know if it's even possible to create a Not-Flashbang Grenade Spell.
>>2873303Positive and negative energy making an antimatter collision style blast sounds hilarious.Until there's a crater where your favorite city was five minutes ago.
>>2873322I can dig it if it's a ultra high tier combination spell.
>>2873274I just realized something. Our evil eye paralysis is going to completely kill our dating life. We can't waifu/husbando without paralyzing people if we take off our mask.Never mind the difficulties of more intimate acts like kissing.They'll have to be powerful enough to shrug off or be immune to our powers.
>>2873333This was a minor reason why I wanted to ask that goddess about helping us being able to turn it on and off. The big reason is so that people won't KNOW that we can easily do that until it was too late.
>>2873285>>2873286>>2873288>80>>2873303Fuuma's magic stat is 300, and with mana control she could make new spells of her own. Didn't want to tell since I wanted you guys to come to that possibility. As for meta gaming, the side-stories are suppose to make the world (that I improvise a lot) more fleshed out.Projecting the mana from my body and into a nearby boulder, I visualize a golem, or myidea of a golem.The boulder shook, rocks and stone pulling towards at as they form a humanoid-esque. Thecrags glowed a blue light as the amalgam of stone groaned, announcing its birth. __________Obtained [Golem Creation]__________"Alright! You, stay here and guard until further commands!" I said."Guuuuh...""Okay," ordering the undead orcs to me I cast purify on them. Their bodies dissipated into a bright light,leaving nothing. "Now that's dealt with we can start wrapping things up here, Fenrir come!""Yes!"Heading back into the caves I rescued the captive women, healing their bodies. Telling them that they'renow saved they all started crying, thanking me at my feet. It was a bit awkward but I didn't hate how theyacted."Fenrir, take these women to the golem and wait for me," I said."Aye. Yes, master," gathering the women and leading them back into the forest.With only me and Yoshka I went to explore the other path I didn't go through. It was a room full of rations, a tablesettled in the corner. On the table was a few maps that were rolled open. They were marked, indicating paths aroundkingdoms such as Piladium.>Take the maps for yourself and leave>Take the maps to give it to the adventurer's guild and leave>Take the maps to give it to the Palad Knight Order and leave>Don't take the maps and leave>Other//Write-in

Alright guys, on the matter of our stats I'd like to put forth two suggestions based on the fact that we were extremely easily ambushed by a creature far weaker than us.Option 1.Put at least 50 points into magic, and join the mage's guild to learn new tricks and decide what other types of magic we would like to use by watching other mages use their own elements.Option 2. Put 80 or more points in speed and join the assassin's guild, with the assumption that such a guild would be able to teach us stealth tactics and/or sensory skills. I'd also like to say that whichever route we go, I wouldn't mind putting more points into light magic, if only for the purpose of honoring the god that actually helped us.
>>2873383I still suggest we dump 100 points into defense so we CAN take a hit and not crumple like tinfoil. And some spare points unlocking some of the first levels of magic for the other elements.After that, I'm fine with whatever.
>>2873383>>2873391I agree on putting some in defense and magic. We'll take the mage route.
>>2873398What if we learn how to make a mana shield? Damage resistance using mana as a power source?
>>2873410What about making a earth spell that gives our flesh the hardness of stone or metal?
Whatever, I'm more interested in how to reward Yoksha and Fenrir. Maybe we can adjust the hex to allow them free access to their transformation. Oh and buy them tasty tasty snacks
>>2873383>>2873398Why not just be a glass cannon? We have like reanimate and the other two for shield meat.I would put everything on magic and through reason and meditate make some can of passive psychic/light/shadow shield if we need so much defense,
>>2873391I just think if we learn defensive spells along with offensive and supporting spells, we're getting a better bang for our buck with each stat point invested into magic.Or just simply be fast enough that we need less of a window to avoid an attack, but we've got the deepest investment in magic right now.
>>2873338>>Take the maps to give it to the adventurer's guild and leaveThe guild can take care of it. Might want to make some copys though
>>2873343>>2873347>>2873358>>2873360>>2873375I snap my finer, growing yoshka to a size big enough for the room, "Yoshka, dig to see if there'sany secret rooms and what not.""On it," he said, tunneling into the stone like sand. He then came back up after a while, notifying methat's there's nothing among the cave's tunnels, "There's nothing here, master."I nod, snapping my fingers again to shrink the wyrm. Taking the maps I leave the cave, joining Fenrir and the rest of the women. With the help of my golem we were safely protected, escorting us back to the capital."Disperse," I said, making the golem no more but a pile of stone.Alarming the guards at the gate I got the women help, being taken to a recovery facility beforethey go back to their homes. Entering the city myself I then rush to the adventurer's guild with mybag full of ears."Qala, I'm back from the quest," I say, announcing myself to the receptionist. I then drop my bag of ears on the counter, Qala's eyes going wide from my harvest.She adjust her glasses, "A-All of this are orc ears?""Yup," i say proudly.Qala took out a monocular like last tiime analyzing a handful of them, "This much...How many werethere, Nemo?!""Er, around forty, fifty-ish," I recount."Fifty...With that amount than they could ransack a whole town or two. Guh, nevermind, I'll tell the guildmaster later." Going under the desk she counted my reward, the clinking of coins becoming rhythmic."Originally the quest was fifty coppers and one silvers, but with this amount of proofs you certainlyearned much more. Here, ten silvers, and two platinum coins."I took the coins from Qala, storing them in my bag, "If I remember, a platinum coin is a lot.""Very," she confirmed."Oh yeah, could you make copies of these?" giving her the maps."What are these?" she asked."Maps I found in a cave inhabited by orcs," I answered."Okay...Let me take these to the back room." Qala enters the door behind the counter. For a brief moment, a flash of blue light flashed from inside. She then comes back, handing me a copy, "Here, Nemo.""Thanks," bagging the maps as well."Geez, ever since you came here I had to work out the riled adventurers because of you. Now you bringsomething very, very important to the state," Qala lamented.>"Why are the maps important?">"What about the other adventurers?">"Qala, do me a favor. Do not, under any circumstance give them to the Palad Order.

>>2873430>We have like reanimateWhich is still reliant on the roll of a dice which can crit fail on us.>and the other two for shield meat.Sure helped a lot when we got kidnapped by orcs because they got the drop on us and successfully carried us off.>>2873440You do make a good point, however I will bring up the fact that there are skills and abilities that can allow a person in this quest to negate, protect against, or simply bypass other abilities and effects. If we can easily pick them up, who's to say that the other 5 or even other people in this world can't do the same? Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if there are beings or monsters that can no-sell the presence of magic.

"What about the maps?" i questioned"Nemo, these maps are routes connecting from the demon king's territory to all around the country. You knowwhat that means?"I shrug."It means that the demon king already has established paths to get his army around, and that's bad."Qala's eyes start to get swirly. Stress is pretty scary."Other than that, what about the adventurer's?" wanting to know about what I did."It turns out people are pretty mad about your rapid success. Turning in the whole bag of orc earsis only gonna worsen the problem. There's already a few A and S ranks watching your progress even ifthis was your second quest. They probably want you in their teams or want to make a move on you to provetheir superiority, watch out 'kay." Qala said."Oh, just when I thought trouble stopped going my way," I remarked."You tell me...""Hey, is it possible to become a member in other types of guilds?""Yeah, why?" sanity coming back to Qala's eyes."Just wanted to know, though I could branch out," I explained."Well other types of guilds has their own advantages and draw-backs, don't get too crazy in applying for themjust in case. Relationships between the guilds are pretty tough to handle and one wrong move may cause afalling out with one another." She sighs heavily, going back behind the counter to collect some documents. "Itwas nice talking with each other but I have a job that's more strict in terms of free-time.""Okay, it was nice for you to inform me, Qala," I say, waving her good-bye."It's my job, see you later."Going back to the streets I breathed heavily, sighing like Qala. I'll need some time for myself to sort all this informationout. But until then, I could take it easy.>Go to the Palad Knight headquarters>Go back to the inn>Go to the church>Other?/Write-in

I stopped by a patrolling soldier that turned around the block."Hello, ma'am, how can I be of service," he asked.I take out the map copies, signing them with marking hex as I engrave the symbol I used on the orcduring my time at the forest. At the top of the maps I wrote, 'From a deer acquaintance, I hope this is useful', I then shove them into the soldier's arms, "Please take these to the Palad Knight Order's headquarters, thank you."

I guess applying to the mage's guild would be good. I'm a mage too. Kinda. GatheringYoshka and Fenrir we left Circe in search for the mage's guild. Not knowing where the guild exactly was I asked a few people passing by. Apparently themage's guild was located in the upper district, the same place where the Palad Order's headquarters are. But it wasalso a place where most of the kingdom's nobility visit. Because of the hierarchical gap most people don't gothere in risk of upsetting the higher class even if there's no rule saying that commoners cannot enter the upper district.Thanking them I went my way, going up the streets.>Roll 1d100

"You'll need to answer many questionswhen I take you back to headquarters!"Going at full speed, I make it at the guild's doors.

Turning aroundI face her, taking my mask off. Directing my gaze I then approach Marianne until the proximity between uswas essentially in the bounds of intimacy."W-What?!" Marianne exclaimed, unknowing about the paralysis that I have affected her with. Her cheeksbecome red as I lean in closer and closer, "Y-You dare lay hands on the daughter of an earl? I-I--"I completely close in, both of my hands taking hold on the sides of her face while I put all my passioninto a single, long kiss...(Marianne Du Legoune's POV)The witch girl turned around, completely facing me. It looks like she's ready to submit. The higher-ups want toknow about her intentions ever since a soldier came in to deliver a map holding very key information on thedemon king's military, saying that a girl in a horned mask gave it to him. Not only that but the maps were alsosigned with a note and a symbol addressing the Palad Knight Order in a mischievous tone. Maybe mockinglyin a sense.Taking off her mask she revealed her face. Her skin which was wholly covered was light and her hair was long and black, reaching down to the leg. Now that she's taken off the mask I took notice of her body's structure, thethin frame of hers juxtaposing the bulky bear's cloak and her height standing comparable to me. I was frozen, I couldn't move as at the same time I dared not try myself.She approached closer and closer, each step making my body hotter. It reached the point where she was against me,her breathe touching my skin. And then she fully closed in, crossing-- no, flying over the gap of intimacy with a deep,passionate kiss. I never imagined having a kiss this heartfelt nor did I expect a woman taking my first time. I wasn'tengaged myself as a noblewoman so the thought and action never crossed me. It was...it made me feel...Thump, thump, thumpDuring the time when we both touched mouths my heartbeat rapidly picked up pace. Is this l-love, the fleeting feeling thatinvades the body? The feeling of affection?(Back to Fuuma's POV}[/b[I finish kissing the drill girl leaving her in a dazed state. She was entirely out of it, her cheeks flushed and all. With nothing Icould do about her state I put my mask back on, trying again to open the door.It was a push door...Leaving Marianne I entered inside a neat, clean reception room. On each side a corridor spanned a fair distance with doorslining the walls.

Even enjoyableAlso gj guys on the level up while i was gone, i feel most of this is gonna be pretty useful.Also, how badass is it that the light barrier is passive? Holy damn..Also also, if one of the generals are a succubus / temptress, we are without a doubt gonna need some measure of magic resistance sooner rather than later. Maybe we can build it up like we did with poison?
>>2874002There's a fair chance that the Succubus's seduction powers will probably go beyond just magical, we will probably also need to have a strong willpower/self-control to possibly stand against it. But your suggestion is a good start nonetheless.
Also Sheep, im glad you get inspiration, i find this quest really likable myself. Very cool world and skill choices. I find myself wanting more at every turn

Going up the desk I ring the bell that was placed on it. The door located to the desk's side soonopened, a man in robes meeting my call.He looked at me with a stare that I now grew familiar with, "Welcome to Aliasa's mage's guild, howcan I help you?""I would like to register," I said."Okay," taking a pen and paper out from under the desk, "Fill this document, please."I take a hold of the pen and wrote down the fake identity I made on to the paper, the same informationprinted into the registration form like the adventurer's guild and city card. Done, I gave it back to thereceptionist."Let's see...Nemo. Miss Nemo, follow me to the ability exam."The receptionist opened the he first came from, ushering me in. Stepping inside he then leads me to anotherroom, telling me to take a seat in front of a table and wait while he gets one of the guild's examiners. Aftera while he comes back holding a ball that was cushioned on a pillow, an old man following into the room as well."You're Miss Nemo, yes? I'm Wilbur O. Margriive, a retired noble now advisor of Aliasa's mage's guild. Ipresume that we're here to examine you?">"Yes.">"Advisor? Isn't there a guild master? or a vice one.">"Greetings to you as well.

"Yes," I answer, saying no more."Okay then. Please, channel mana into this crystal ball. It'll start to glow brighter andbrighter depending on your magical ability. Of course, you do know how to channel mana, right?""I know," I confirmed."Good."Wilbur told the receptionist to place the crystal ball on the table, presenting it in front of me. I then startthe examination, hovering my hands over the ball while concentrating the mana inside my body into it.>Roll 1d100

The light continued to get stronger as I pour mymana into it, gradually lighting the room while pushing out the natural sunlight from the window. In fact, it becameso bright that I could've blinded myself, Wilbur, and the receptionist, Wilbur telling me to stop before it got out of hand.I take my hands off from the ball, the light dying rapidly as it had no mana to sustain itself."M-Miss, do you know what have you done, what you've shown?!" Wilbur said, amazed by the performance.>"I'm powerful? I mean, I already knew that before coming here.">"Did I put too much mana into it? Hope I didn't break the ball.">Other?/Write-in

Idea for future reference:If we can store mana, we should make some bead chains to store mana in said beads, and enchant each with a single spell. Basically make a necklace of quick cast spells with max mana behind them.
I think we should get a haircut, our hair is way too long. Then put it in a ponytail. Also upgrade wardrobe to something other than a giant bear pelt
>>2875432Just braid it. You can work in bracelets and charms which are also good for enchantments. Get enough spells and youll probably find one to clean yourself to solve the whole maintanence issue.
>Spell Idea for Evil EyeWe can use this to our advantage as a low key intimidation. Basically we say cryptic words about fear and cowardice when in reality they're just paralyzed from staring at him or her too much. I say Fuuma should learn some or pull some references in earth may it be movies or shows I mean Japan has a wealth of horror stories we can incorporate some messages to strike fear to our opponent similar to what we did to that orc.Also let's try to find a dragon. You can't go wrong with a dragon. And also badass too.

>>2875474Not exactly my type of cast, but hey, whatever floats your boat
>>2875447I dunno, the idea of having Yoksha evolve into a Nidhoggr to eventual Jormungandr seems more appeal and keeps him relevant when power creep happens.
"Did I put to much mana into it? Hope I didn't break the ball," flustered.Wilbur shakes his head, "No, no, the ball will be fine." He then takes a seat for himself,sitting across from me while the crystal ball was taken away by the receptionist. "Nemo, you'reaptitude in magic is clearly above a normal man, even comparable to a court mage when justlooking at the result.""Uh, thanks?""Sorry if I'm making you uncomfortable, it's just that I never seen such a read for a very long time," Wilbur reassured. "If you seek a career in magic alone you may be granted a noble status if you show your skills-- ah, sorry, I'm getting too ahead of myself." Wilbur took a second to calm down, sorting his thoughts in order. "You'll be a member of the mage's guild, there's no doubt about that. As for ranks, we do not carry out that sort of system. The guild is a place for study and the progression of magic, some of our member are even professors at Lionheart Academy, a school solely for the nobles of this country...." Wilbur pauses again, "Miss Nemo, have youever thought about teaching?""No, not really," I said."I see. How does teaching at Lionheart sound? You're no doubt an expert at magic and the noble's children could definitely benefit from your lessons. The payis about 1 platinum and 50 silvers the last time I was teaching there.">"S-Sure.">"I'll think about it.">"No thanks.">Other?/Write-in

>>2875523>"I'll have to understand magic in a more cognizant way first, it's instinct more than anything right now."
>>2875523>"I'll think about it."We came here to brush up on our magic, we need to understand the underlying qualities and spells, etc. You know, be a bookworm type.You know, I think our parents were the active physical type. That's why we have a distant relationship with them as they couldn't understand why we'd prefer to read. And we couldn't really get why they just love hiking, camping and doing stuff outside.Dad is a blue collar welder type, amateur bodybuilder. Once dragged us to a gym to teach us how to pose our muscles. Much embarrassment was had when he encouraged us to do Schwarzenegger posesMom runs a meal prep company, sells already chopped/sauce prepped ready to be cooked for stupid rich fuckers with no time but still want to 'cook' a meal.
>>2875690Maybe exercise became part of our routine, encouraging our growth in height, while also making some of the guys in class feel inadequate. Add to that a gloomy expression from not getting to read as much as we'd have liked and we have a recipe for our outcast nature.Also lightning magic arc welding for when we inevitably make an air ship.
>>2875719>Also lightning magic arc welding for when we inevitably make an air ship.I'm humorously imagining we create some god killing blade and we use it as a fuel source for our air ship.
Also fuck no to getting a haircut
>>2875719We should get a book membership card, back in the past they used to rent books out to you for a fee. You read it and then returned it. I suggest we get a history book and then a typical potboiler to get a sense of the world's preferences.
"I'll consider it, however I came here to study here formally. Being a member here gives me an opportunityto explore, experiment, and formulate with magic, and maybe producing new spells in the process," I explained."I understand, but please do tell me if you take interest in teaching."Wilbur gets out of his chair and opens the door to the hall."The examination is done," he told me. "How about a tour of the institute?""Sure, thank you."Joining Wilbur in the hall he explained that making me mage's card would take a while and wanted to show me aroundpersonally since I peaked his interest. We return to the reception's desk and head into the side halls, Wilbur showing me thenumerous rooms and facilities.>"Do you have a library?">"Do you have a place for magic crafting?">"Could you tell me more about what it's like teaching at Lionheart?">Other?/Write-in
>>2875746>>"Do you have a library?">>"Do you have a place for magic crafting?">>"Could you tell me more about what it's like teaching at Lionheart?"All these are good questions.

>>2875746>"Do you have a place for magic crafting?"
>>2875746>>"Do you have a library?"
>>2875746>"Could you tell me more about what it's like teaching at Lionheart?"
>>2875690It turns out in the first thread our parents are workaholics and never home.So we'd have to modify this background. Perhaps they were in debt after being a financial guarantor of a family member who went bankrupt. So they started working more and more to keep their heads above water and provide for their daughter.The mother's business is enough to keep their heads above water and actual earns more than the father but this kind of hurt the father's pride as a provider of his family. They barely got to see each other because of their work and when they did come home they'd start arguing. Soon it just got easier to avoid each other and the daughter was mature enough to take care of herself so they started avoiding her too because it was easier on them. Each assumes that the other is actually providing some sort of support but it turns out both were neglectful.
>>2875753>>2875754>>2875775>>2875789"Say, do you have a library?" I asked."Yes we do, third biggest in the city actually. Want me to show you?""Yes please~!"Going down the hall and taking a right, Wilbur led me the guild's library. It was huge, two floors and aisle uponaisle of books, scriptures, documents, and records."Impressed?" Wilbur said."Very, I could probably keep myself for days until the need for food occurs. Tell me, how do you get all of these books?""Many magic researchers record their data and experiments at the guild, ultimately being stored in this library. Of course,this place doesn't just hold recordings, we also have copies of tomes and highly established books about magic and itsqualities. We do have history books here, but not many though.""Could I check it out? I'd love to see what's in store," I say, ready to grab the chance."Haha, sure, go ahead. I'll leave you here while I check on your card," Wilbur laughed, exiting the library.I wonder the shelves, the air full of the smell of old paper."I don't understand the need for books, master," Fenrir says, still within my shadow."Books hold knowledge. Even if you were born million years in the past, writing a book will last forever. It cementsyour thoughts into something timeless," I say while browsing the titles lined against the wall.>Mana Theory and Law>Magic and Magic Circle Formulation>Element Binding and Spell Production

I picked the book off the shelf and lay it on a table, taking a seat for myself. Opening the cover i read thefollowing passages, turning page after page.Mana Theory and Law pg.7 The main component of spells and all things magic is mana. Mana is an organic energy that is always present in the world, a basiswhere people use to 'cast' spells and the like. The origin of mana is currently unknown but researchers agree that it's flowing naturallyin the world and within organisms such as human beings. Before in the past, the concept of mana was seen as a supernatural life energy within animals and plants, but was proven wrongwhen a leyline, a massive storage of mana inside the earth, was discovered. Usually, mana is colorless but when compacted togetherit creates a faint hue of blue. When practitioners of magic who originally believed the life energy version of mana found a leyline, theycame across a leaking mist of blue. Discovering and cementing the existence of today's concept of mana, creating one of the firstlaws of mana, that law being "Mana is a material that is always around us and inside us".pg.23 The art of casting, mostly known as magic is when a person conducts mana. Most people use the innate mana supply within themselveswhich is easier to pull and use from but is limited to their own stored capacity. The other way is using mana from the surroundings, which isoften harder than using one's own mana, but the upside is that there's an unlimited amount to pull from. If a person masters using thesurrounding mana then they'll achieve an unlimited source to fuel their spells, but none has achieved such mastery.pg. 26 When casting spells it is very important to visualize the spell in question. Casting a spell is converting conducted mana into a shaped aphenomenon, be it fire, wind control, or cleaning spells. An elementary practice for visualization is chanting as it helps form the conducted mana throughwording, albeit at a slower pace than just visualizing it. Think of mana like a sort of clay, and casting mana is shaping the clay into a desired form. That'swhat casting is and what spell crafting is in general.>(cont.)
>>2875948A few hours had pass as I close the book, deciding that I did enough reading for today. Stretching my legsI get out of my seat, taking the book back into the shelf I founded it in. Yoksha and Fenrir was asleep, Yoksha'sbody coiled around my neck and Fenri's snoring resounding inside my mind. They woke up soon after, my body'smovement waking them up.The library's door opened, Wilbur entering inside with a card in his hands."Seems you enjoyed yourself, Miss Nemo," Wilbur says, handing me my mage's guild card."I did. This place is full of material I can use for myself," I said."Well I'm glad. Sorry for the long wait, even if you don't mind. Had to sort out some documents thatone of the workers accidentally misplaced," Wilbur said. "Now that you've got your card, you're freeto use our facilities."I put the newly obtained card into my bag, along with the other ones, "Thank you very much.""No sweat. Now if you excuse me, I have work to finish," he turned, approaching the door. "May we meetagain some time, Miss Nemo."We exchanged our good-byes, Wilbur leaving me in the library again. I followed suit as well, making my wayout of the guild. My stomach rumbled, reminding me that I haven't eaten at all today. Now that I think about it,it's pass noon, so I won't be able to get lunch from the inn. Leaving the mage's guild I stroll out of the upper district and back to the lower one, meeting a stand selling kebobs. I got three, enough for Yoshka and Fenrir when we get back to the inn.At Circe, I went up to the front desk to extend my stay, paying another 28 copper and going into my room. Like routine, Yoshkaand Fenrir took the bed while I take of my gear, eating their share of the kebobs."I prefer meat raw but this will do," commented Fenrir, rocking her legs back and forth on the bed."It's pretty alright, sister. Master did by it for us," said Yoshka."Yeah, yeah. It's better than berries at least," said Fenrir."Well I don't know about you Fen but I had to ate poisonous ones," I joked.It's afternoon, today was a pretty tiring day because of those orcs.>Go to sleep right away>Experiment>Other?/Write-in

Yoshka said, finishing hi food."Lemme tweak your hexes, I want you both to be able to transform without me," I say, looking into the symbolsaround their necks. "Now let's see here..."Checking around Yoshka's neck I play around with the two lines of symbols while adding another one, the mysteriousletters reshuffling and moving as I use marking hex. Yoksha's body started to change, the same black silhouettechanging his shape just like it did with Fenrir. It then finally revealed a little boy with an abnormal discolored pair of eyeswith patches of smooth scales on his skin."Uh..Master? I can't see..." Yoksha said worryingly, feeling around the room."Looks good, brother! Now you're smaller than me in snake form and human form, gehaha!"

Actually, looking closer he could rival Homura in looks, silver colored hair, a tall and strong build, and eyes now turned into a natural white. Wait, those clothes weren't there before."Oh, I could see again," Yoshka said. "So this is what it feels like to walk on two feet, sister?"Yoshka turns to Fenrir, her face showing an expression of disbelief."W-Wha?! How come it works for you?!" she uttered."Yoshka, can you turn back into a shrunken wyrm?" I said, diregarding Fenrir's cry."Like this?" Yoshka says, his body returning to his previous form.Fenrir continued her displeasure, "N-No fair!

What do you guys think of having ID's made for Yoshka and Fenrir, so that they could walk around in with us in human form if they want?
>>2876507>>Go to sleep>>2876529But we should experiment with this tomorrow. A magic bag would be very useful.
Experiment thought:If we can't draw in mana ourselves, then maybe we can enchant something like a crystal to draw it in for us, a-la a mages staff.The theory of organic mana may not be so far fetched: If everyone has an internal amount then maybe the body generates mana itself and laylines occur when that mana is released into the environment. If we compare layline location with bio-diversity in an area alongside records of mass deaths, say from a dragon attack, plauge or natural disaster, we may find a correlation in the locations.
>>2876757Laylines of course could also indicate that the planet itself is also alive in some form, which means we should be able to commuicate with it like a druid would.
"That'll be enough for tonight, fixing Yoshka tired me out," I say, joining the bed. "Goodnight.""Master, do you have to hug my tail every night?" Fenrir complained."Yes I do, Fen.

>>2876835It seems she got some kind of insanity related strength boost, which is pretty dope
>>2876836Makes me remember Reisen Inaba if we're talking about insanity
>>2876836>>2876839The next time we see her, we need to appraise her so we can find out how strong the insanity effect is to give someone like her the ability to just rip people apart like a horror movie monster.Also I wonder if it's possible to upgrade appraise to see more of the nitty gritty details.
>>2876839Reisen is the most sane member of the cast, though. She just causes insanity in others.

It is up to Detective Marianne and her buddy Nemo to pursuit this mysterious individual.Next time on Detective Marriane and my weird mage sidekick. Episode 121: The culprit...loves my sidekick? Tune in next time*outro jingle plays*
>>2876956I actually visualised it as it was narrated. The only thing in color was her green eyes. The entire time Fuuma had candy sucker in her mouth, and Marriane bummed one like a cigarette.
>>2876900"There are many people that walk through my front door on a week to week basis. Some broads want to know if their hubbies are cheating on them. Others just want minor things like checking out some people for suspicious behavior. But her.... She was something, but I'm getting ahead of myself.""It was a cold and snowy night, the air was so frigid you could freeze your throat by breathing. The city, bustling with the dishonest, lost and downtrodden, like rats coming out when the cat's away. I reached the front door of my office to find that it was left opened, with a mistlike smoke crawling through the crack at the foot of the opening. With a hand on my piece, I carefully pushed the door all the way with the smoke now growing ever bigger and now crawling up my body like a yearning seductress, and the ever so smell of of mint and wolf in the air. And that's when I saw a fur coat on the coatrack, and quickly afterwards, her.""Sitting at the edge of my desk like a conquering empress, caressed in clothes of dark greens and pure black. With legs like a graceful swan, hair with the aura of obsidian, skin pure white like the driven snow, and eyes... eyes the color of alluring emeralds. I swear if her eyes were weapons she could kill a man on the spot with a single look.""What snapped me out of my daydream was the fact that she had a job for me. A man was murdered at the docks, not a big deal of course since there's always at least one or two bodies turning up like a much disliked relative. What made it odd though, was that the man was ripped limb from limb, like a kid playing with a doll and forgetting their own strength. And she wanted my help with looking into it before the cops decided that it was more trouble than it was worth. So for the chance to work a more interesting case from the norm, and the chance to see her again I took it.""Little did I know how fast I would find out about the true meaning behind the phrase "Lone Wolves" and why the coppers and con artists on southside are never seen alone."MARRIANE LEGOUNEFUUMA "NEMO" NAGAROTHE DEER HUNTER"Run with the Pack"Genre: Crime/ThrillerOk so it ended up going from my first attempt at halfassing a noir monologue to something that now has a book/movie title and a tagline.

The sun dazzling through the window, my half-awake consciousness bids me to get up. Thegrogginess accompanies a headache every morning but quickly fading once I regain fullcontrol of my body, my eyes becoming clear after rubbing them. Taking a shower I freshen myselfup for the day, Yoshka and Fenrir soon following suit as they entered a routine where the tipof Fenrir's nose gets whacked awake by a small wyrm's tail."Morning," greeting the two monsters on my bed."You as well, master," replied Yoshka."Yeah, good morning..." says Fenrir, rubbing her noes to ease the sharp pain.

>>2877629Also we got cash, like lots of it. We could go on a slight spree and do something our girlish hearts haven't done before.Shopping for clothing and being able to afford it!
>>2877636Though im more inclined to run a bitter and angry character, im not opposed to this idea
>>2877640Just because a character is angry and bitter doesn't mean they can't enjoy anything. Like kittens, ice cream and hardbound books with nice acid free paper
>>2877629If we made our muscles, connective tissues, and bones tougher, then did some minor blood doping, we could draw out more strength and speed while Keeping our body as it is.Temporary [Physical Boost] effects more of less.
>>2877650I think we could maybe look into doing that ourselves - obviously test on someone else first (preferably orcs). Would be pretty cool. May even end up giving ourselves a permanent boost, sort of like that one assassin who had something like Lean body or sth

Wandering the city I find myself a clothes stores, located near the line separating the lowerand upper districts. The store was normal, or looked to be; dresses, tunics, and a wholevariety of outfits displayed to the street. It was a fancier one either compared to earlier stores for sure.Entering inside, a woman came to me just as I stepped on to the polished floor."Welcome, how may I help you?" she says with an ambiguous smile; don't know if it's fake or not. Eitherway it is a clothes store and I wouldn't mind the service.>"Can you show me some outfits?">"How much is a pair of tunics, pants and skirt too">"...How much is a made outfit, particularly in a size of a little girl.">Other?/Write-in

One of the pairs small enough for a child, please," handingher the cost.The woman bowed, taking my money and gathering what I asked for. Coming back to give me my changeand bought clothes."Would that be all?" she said while I was busy packing the clothes into my bag."Can you show me some outfits? Wait, how much are one of the outfits?" asking for the price of some ofthe dresses."Select pieces and outfits from our shop are 2 silvers," the woman replied.Mulling over the decision I made my choice, "..I guess I could get one--""--Great, follow me please to the curtains."She took my hand, taking me to the portion of the store with the change curtains. Opening one of them forme to enter she then asked me to put my stuff aside, namely my bag, clothes, and...mask."Is something wrong, miss?" the woman said, noticing my distress.>"...Do I have to take off my mask?">"I, uh...Do you have a blindfold by any chance.">Use divinas humanitas to make a magic blindfold>Other/Write-in

"Something that's fashioned for everyday use.""Then we have just the thing!"The woman left me for a bit, returning with a dark purple veil. The band that held the cloth was decoratedin a modest design, nothing too outstanding that would garner the stares of other people."How much would this be?" curious to its cost."Just 10 coppers, miss. Now if you would, can you start changing for me to measure you?" she instructed.Taking the veil, I went behind the curtains to unclothe myself. Removing my current wear I put my clothes withina corner of the small space along with my bag and mask, Yoshka dangling by the horns. Double-checking behind me to see if the woman's in sight, which she wasn't thankfully, I then put on the veil; making sure my face was thoroughly covered by the silken cloth. Now I was just bear, ready for the clerk to start measuring."I'm done," I called, letting the clerk into the small changing space."My," she said in admiration. "Quite the figure you have, miss. Comparable to a noblewoman's.""Could you start," I reminded her."Oh, sorry," she apologized. Taking a measuring tape out of her back pocket she took my numbers, writing it down on a notepad. The processtook a while but gave the woman everything she needed."For preference sake, miss, what do you have in mind for an outfit?">Something mature>Something simple>Something young>Other?/Write-in

No, scratch that, I took up toomuch time worrying about my appearance that I just settled with an average school girl look; my reputation emergingas a nobody because of my lack of effort in showing any personality while at school. Instead of wearing mini-skirts likemost of the girls in my class, I wore a longer one that reached my knees. Most people if not any just referred to me asthe 'proper' girl, or the quiet one on the rare occasion that my name does come up, let alone remembering who I lookedlike. But now here, in this world, my forgettable face is now a great advantage. If I perhaps run into my classmates, er...thelast of my classmates, then I could play around with my identity. A guessing game if I may."Sorry for the wait, this should be what you're looking for."The woman came back, handing me two outfits for me to put on. She then stepped outside again to give me privacy while Ichanged into them, standing on the opposite side of the curtain in case I needed anything.Presenting myself in a mirror that hanged on the changing space's wall, the first given outfit composed a mature look just likeI asked for. The dress' color matched the veil's own, a one-piece reaching down and hovering over my feet as the clothhugged my body. The sleeves of the dress was loose, made to drape over my arms. Along with the outfit was a shawl whichwas darker in color, making the outfit more complete. Seeing myself in the mirror the only word to describe my appearancewas witch-like.
>>2878743>(cont.)The second outfit was more homely and young. The dress this time had its skirt raised higher than the previous one, the first piece acting as an undershirt and the second piece being a blouse that was meant to be worn over said dress.I took off my veil for this one since it looked tacky, the dark purple not mixing well with the soft white and peach colors of the blouseand skirt. All in all, it was easy to move in, floaty I should say.The remainder of the outfit was just a pair of stockings, nestled on two pairs of shoes. The shoes were simple; they were slip-ons that were essentially the same design, the only difference being the colors, white and black for their respective outfits that they came with.>Buy the first outfit (dark-purple veil, dark-purple dress, shawl, and black shoes)>Buy the second outfit (soft-peach dress, white blouse, stockings, and white shoes)>Buy both>Buy neither

I have the veil but the colors are way toodifferent for this current outfit, dark and light colors don't bode well the last time I checked.

>>2878989>>2878999This I like the look of seeming blind to others, but being perfectly capable of seeing, kinda like Nier
>>2879258>>2879019Random thought that came to my head.I think that once we get our hands on some eyeglasses, we should enchant them with the Appraise skill so we don't have to spend precious time in combat just trying to activate it.
>>2879271Dude... So every time we want to use appraisal we have tp put the glasses? Otherwise we will have some damn windows everywhere. Honest question, maybe i didn't understand the complete idea.
>>2879306I mean we can still use it without the glasses, but if we want new information on the fly without going through the process (which I'm assuming we're having to cast it on each separate thing we find, because there was some that wanted to appraise more than one thing and forgot to mention it while activating the appraise skill) we can just instead wear them normally and have information on the go while we go throughout our day.Of course we will have to have a on and off switch for them so we don't get swarmed with the window boxes.And now that I think about it, we could probably add a function in that it only appraises new information for things we come across, so that it can ignore old information to show us.
>>2879316Now, that's a fine suggestion. We may put it in the mask or veil already, maybe. At the Mage's Guild or at the Magic Shop we may find dome glasses, pr we should create them.

>>2879361To be fair, I've gotten some extremely shit rolls. So I've pretty much gone in prepared that I will more than likely end up rolling a crit fail.It makes the successes more sweeter that way.
>>2879347>>2879352>>2879363>101"...divinas humanitas," I whispered, keeping the woman from noticing my actions.Specs of light gathered near my bosom, congregating into my desired form; a blindfold that can be of useto me, soft colored white.__________Created...[Olm]-A pure white blindfold, lightly decorated with faint outlines of unknown characters.Effect-Disables [Evil Eye]-The user is able to see through the cloth-Innate [Appraise]__________Happy, I tied Olm around my head, concealing my eyes but letting me see clearly. The material was soft to the touch, likea blanket gently hugging my face.Gathering my stuff off the ground I opened the curtains, giving the woman my regards and paying. Going back into the city streetI bordered the upper district where carriages and wagons went in and out, carrying their goods for the purpose of profit. I gotta say,the blindfold is a pretty good substitute for the mask. Discreet enough for others not to notice my person, though now I look likea blind girl.>Go back to the inn, your bag is really heavy>Go find a magic shop>Other?/Write-in

>>2879380>>Go find a magic shop>>Other?/Write-inGo to an alley and give it the bag to Fen, then she go back to the shadow with the bag (if is possible).
>>2879383>>2879384>>2879391Why don't we keep the weight up so we can build endurance?
>>2879392While efficient, i wouldnt really do that if it were me
>>2879392I was at doubt at first, but what is the inclination of our character? Magic, strange, endurance or jack of all trades and master of none? Even though I like your idea, we're kinda going for all with her.
>>2879409Yes we are going for all for the time being, because we are exploring the limits of our new body and the limits of the world around us.
>>2879409I think we should play to our strengths and focus magic, it's our best stat. Other stats are already pretty high, so they should be sufficient for most purposes.Although speed may also be important for reflexes, reacting before the opponent and such, but really that depends on what qm use them for - given the orc ambush im not so sure they are all that important... I mean when with the high stats we have, defense didnt help, and speed didnt allow us to evade or counteract
>>2879417I will say this again2 crit fails.And defense was our weakest stat at the time.
>>2879421Isnt it 100 though?And i dont agree to the argument of dice. By that logic, should a crow be able to knock us out, with a particularly well placed peck? Obviously not. I guess i just assumed defense 100 meant a damage reduction of some quality, and that expectation bit me in the arse
Oh shit has op been archiving the threads?
>>2879430>Isnt it 100 though?It was 100 at the time yes. And crits have been extremely powerful considering the circumstances of the quest.Also nothing's stopping us from asking a more indetailed explanation of the stats considering that the QM has been from time to time told us things that some QMs might consider a faux pas as a form of trust.>>2879440Also yes the threads have been archived. I just checked.
>>2879447Not sure what you mean by the faux pas trust part, but I guess youre right that it wouldnt hurt to ask, i didnt so far because i didnt wanna be too taxing on the qm.>>2879380On that note, Sheep, what can i expect of our stats? Mainly defence, speed, and strength
>>2879454Our stats are 200 (well beyond human) in all but magic which we have a 300 in.
>>2879391+1 to this
>>2879489Sure but what does it mean. IIRC, 50 was human peak in previous world. Does that mean Nemo can deadlift 4k pounds? I guess it does. But I have no idea what speed or defence do.. Im guessing speed is reaction time and running speed
>>2879535Well, we killed a god-bear in one punch so that's fairly telling of our strength stat, but we haven't really tested ourselves in speed or defense. I imagine defense doesn't harden our skin or make us impervious, just improve how well we can tank hits when we're ready for them.
>>2879538So with that type of mindset in mind. We could theoretically assassinate any of the other 5 and the demon king with a sniper rifle and a good vantage point?
>>2879538That sounds more like a sort of dex than defence..
>>2879570Well all I've got base anything on is the only time we've been hit, which was because we crit failed, so we were ambushed and bashed in the back of the head.
Really the best solution would be to spend an in game day explording our bodys limitations fully.
>>2879384>>2879391>>2879492Directing myself to the nearest alley, I called Fen to come out of my shadow."Yes, master?" she replied. "Hm, where's brother?""I'm in here," says Yoshka, peeking out of my bag.I pulled out the little tunic and skirt for her, "Here, come, Fen. I got you some clothes while at the store.""Clothes? But I don't need them," Fen naively said."C'mon, it'll be fine. I wouldn't want you to be naked all the time," I reasoned."...Find, master."Hiding behind the cover of the alley I helped Fen put on her new clothes; had to to teach her how to put on a skirtsince she was just a wolf before she met me. Also the tail was pretty hard to figure out where to put it, but I eventuallysettled on covering it. With everything done the clothes fit her perfectly, Fen showing an indifferent expression."Feels weird," she says, her tail lifting the skirt behind her."You'll get used to it. Also try to keep your tail down, Fen, people will see your panties," I reminded her, brushing down the tail."muu~ Okay..." she says, sinking back into my shadow. Resuming back into the streets I went on to find some sort of magic shop. Asking around again, some people told me that most magicstores are located in the upper district. They explained that magic items are a luxury, mostly available to the wealthier part of thespectrum."A magic store? Yes, they should be in the upper district, young lady," an old lady answered. "But are you going to be okay? That blindfoldtells me everything about your vision, poor girl.">"It's fine, I can walk with no problem.">"I got used to being 'blind' .">"Don't worry...I'm in Alia's hands.">Other?/Write-in

"Don't worry..I'm in Alia's hands," I say in an effort to make me look like a believer in the church."My, I guess that's good...But you should still be careful, young girls like you disappear when they're alone. Awhile back, a line of girls disappeared when they were at the upper district because of some noble who's sincethen been executed. Do take care," the old women warned."I'll be fine, thank you for your help," continuing the facade."Anything for the young'uns to keep them out of danger. Good-bye, young girl," she waved, shuffling along.So, the upper district again, huh, yesterday wasn't that bad if I remember. If anything really does happens I couldprobably handle it on my own.>Roll 1d100

>>2880041>>2880043>>2880044Soon enough I found the magic store I was looking for, tucked between two buildings atthe upper district. Going inside, it was a neat and orderly shop with items displayed inside glass cases; weapon or non-weapon, it was settled on a cushion, delicately handling the preciousproduct.Looking around, a bag caught my attention. It was approximately the same size as my current one, but wasmore fine. On it was a tag labeling the it: bag of holding, cost 2 platinum.>Buy it>Leave it and find something else>Leave the store>Steal it

>>2880496>>Leave it and find something elseIs pretty expensive, and we will teach soon enough to but it, also don't want to stretch our luck. I want something that can store mana.
>>2880496>HaggleCome on guys can we use some brain here?
>>2880496>>Leave it and find something elseLet's browse the store and see what ideas we can get for divinas humanitas.
We could probably easily make money selling enchanted gear, but that kinda sounds boring
>>2880496>>2880525This is plausibly, we can go even to use our blandness to our advantage and we can brainwash the vendor.
>>2880525>>2880540We can just try to make one ourselves. The main purpose of coming to the magic store was to get ideas for things to make.
>>2880496Ask storekeep about materials best suited for a bag of holding.
>>2880496Switch vote from>>2880518To just browse and get info
>>2880496>Browse and make a decision at the end.
>>2879985>"You'll get used to it. Also try to keep your tail down, Fen, people will see your panties," I reminded her, brushing down the tail.Amazing.
>>2880496Ask who the craftsman/woman is. I'm sure we can find the master magesmith and ask for tips. We can even show him some of our handiwork or something.In fact, let's enchant something relatively simple as if we aren't as powerful and expound on some theories.
Leaving the magic bag for now I took my time around the store, admiring the polished pieces ofblades, gems, staffs, and other miscellaneous items. Using appraise, the information about each itempops into a screen for my enjoyment; the store is serving its purpose as a reference, an examplefor magic crafting. The intangible text of appraise showing me what makes them work, what makes them tick,and what its effects are.Does the blade get coated with fire? Does it have healing properties? Effects towards monsters? Such items areable to do these things because they either have a magic circle engraved into the item that recites a spell or the itemis granted an effect through magic alone with no physical means.The first way to make a magic item or grant magical abilities on an item is to apply a magic circle. A magic circle is awritten form of a spell; they're often used in rituals where the circles are huge but even the tiniest drawing of one is ableto cast a destructive spell. Note that the magic circles that appear when casting a spells yourself are different than the physical type.The second way to make a magic item is by enchanting. Enchanting sorta works like divinus humanitas where the item in questionis granted a desired effect directly; think of it this way, magic circles are written copies of spells and when engraved or drawn on an item it willcast the spell when mana is applied. Enchanting is a class of spells and skills that directly grants magical effects towards items.intrigued, I walk up to the man at the counter who was reading a book. The man saw me approach him, putting aside the book in his hands, "How can I help ya, miss? You lost by chance?">"No I'm not lost. Why'd you ask?">"Where do you get these items?">"Do magesmiths exist? If so, do you know any nearby facility?">Other?/Write-in
>>2880496>>Leave it and find something elseWe can come back and haggle over it later if it turns out to be too difficult for us to make our own.
>>2880787>>"Where do you get these items?"
>>2880787>>"Do magesmiths exist? If so, do you know any nearby facility?"
Hmm so if we assume Yoshka and Fenrir can use mana, we could supply them spells via magic circle-imbued items, and enchant everything they wear, they could be quite capable in combat should we get separated again.
>>2880796>>2880800"Do magesmiths exist? If so, do you know any nearby facility?" I questioned."Yeah they exist, but they're within bounds of the royal palace facilities. The items sold here are from independentsmithies," the man explained.I tilt my head, "What will happen if I approach the place?""You'd get arrested for sure. Last time I heard, trespassing the crown's home will put you on death's row or slavery. Onlypeople with special permission are able to enter, nobles and such," he furthered. "Oh, I guess that's to be expected from the palace.""It's not uncommon for there be a law like that, miss. It's harsh, yeah, but royalty is like that."The man picked up his book, flipping the pages back to where he was prior to my questioning.>Buy something (specify)>Leave>Other/Write-in
>>2880834>Other/Write-in>ask if he wants to buy our services>pick anything, we'll rando enchant it for plats
>>2880787>>"Do magesmiths exist? If so, do you know any nearby facility?"if he asks, we can demonstrate our abilities. Let's get a stone and cast a weak light magic on it and botch it lightly so that it's only as strong as a candle. I think that'll get his attention if we're able to do a bit of enchantment ourselves.
>>2880837>>2880845we could demonstrate with something relatively weak and small. like my light stone as an example
>>2880850Yeah, let's not get people talking even more about us. We can enchant something with some decent effects if he offers to pay us, but don't go and make some godly item.
>>2880834>>2880837Supporting,Also>Other/Write-in>Ask about the book he's reading just because of curiosity.

"Mister, what if I told you that I'm a magesmith myself?"The man raised a brow, "Hoh? I'm listening.""Do you have a rock? Something to use for an example.""Sure," reaching under his desk he gave me a small, square stone. "Use that.""I want to know just in case, am I gonna pay for this?" I asked uncertainly."No, you aren't paying for it. It's just a stone," he assured."Alright."With humanitas, I started implementing the stone with a magical effect; light creation to be exact, somethingnot too spectacular to keep eyes from drawing to me. There would be no doubt that someone would seekmy skills if word got out.Finished, I showed the newly magic stone to him, a bright light shining from my hands."What do you think?"The man's eyes were fixated on the stone, analyzing it. "It's impressive for sure. You said that this is an example, right?Then I assume you can make more than just a lantern replacement.""Yes. How does it sound if I offer my services to you in exchange for money?"He closed his eyes for moment, "I don't have a problem with that, but the money I'm willing to buy from you will dependon the item itself, no one wants a glowing rock for a platinum coin. Deal?">Accept>Decline
>>2880913>acceptIs this a choice? can we just pick what the store owner will enchant for us? and also his buying price?
>>2880926>>2880920We might want to check other stores for their buying price in the case of him trying to pull a fast one on us.
>>2880938It's not like we have a contract, also we can sell to a lot of store and somehow manage the prize market of enchanting!
>>2880913>AcceptWhen we are planning on selling things we should check prices in other stores, like >>2880938 said.
>>2880913>>AcceptAlso tell him if there's a specific item he'd like fabricated we can't try to create it. Made to order!
"Deal.""Great, come to me if you have anything you want to sell," the man says, putting the stone aside."Just like that? I thought you'd be more skeptical," I say tentatively."I know a great magesmith when I see one. In all my years of running this store, I learned the differencein quality from person to person," he says confidently. "Miss, that glowin' rock of yours would've took anexperienced smith an hour or two to make. You ain't ordinary.""Okay...Then how do I know that you'll pay me fairly if I present you a product?""The lowest a magic item can sell for is 40 silvers or so." He then picks up the rock, "This however wouldn't sellmuch, probably about 50 coppers since all it can do is shine.""I see...Costs aside, do you have anything you wan't me to make?""No, I just sell the stuff. If I did want something then I wouldn't be running a shop.""Oh, then I guess we'll see each other when I have something in store," I said, taking my leave and nearing the exit."Yeah, next time, miss," the man told back, "The name's Ronald."Departing from the magic store I recount the whole conversation; now i have another way to earn money besidesdoing quest, so it'll be a good alternative to fall back on for income.>Explore the upper district>Visit the Palad Order's headquarters>Go back to the inn>Other?/Write-inChanged [Divinus Humanitas].

"You okay?">"You aren't in your usual suit of armor I see, drilly.">"My, to not notice me even after our passionate get-together yesterday. How cruel, dar~ling.">Mess around with her.

"My blindness gets the best of me...""It's okay, I understand," Marianne said with care, falling into my trap. "I wasn't looking myself, here." Reaching out a hand for me she helped me up from the ground, picking up my bag as well. I thought she would seeYoshka inside but luckily she overlooked it, handing it to me without a second thought."I'm sorry to trouble you, miss, you even stayed to help me. If..If you say so I'll repay you in any way.""No, no, like I said it's okay. It's nothing," disregarding my offer.
