RECAP OF THREAD 1

You are Hyenus, the weakest gnoll of the Bloodseeker tribe. Your dream is to become the pack leader and the Champion of your demon god Gnolrek. It took years of unproductiveness, but you finally decide to stop slacking and start working towards your goals.

In a matter of hours, you train and improve greatly, but many shenanigans happen and a goblin ends up severely wounding you. You spend two weeks recovering in the shaman’s hut, unconscious the whole time after being accidentally drugged with special herbs called “kudinds”, which also gave you a premonitory dream where you fought a human king.

After waking up, your childhood friend Daitzsa leads you to a hidden cavern behind a waterfall where you can both spar without her jealous husband Gunyx pestering you. However, what you thought would be a simple sparring match turns into a serious fight after Daitzsa goes all out and forces you to awaken your Bloodthirst. Your newfound powers help you defeat her, ending the combat with both of you heavily injured.

Daitzsa confesses she always wanted you to assert your dominance. As much as you want to mate with her, you control your urges and decide to carry her back to the tribe instead.

You venture deeper into the cavern, looking for a safe exit. Along the way, you stumble upon a strange, glowing cavern wall with eye engravings staring at you. A voice tells you to touch them. Assuming the place is haunted by evil spirits who want to possess you, you decide to teach those pesky eyes a lesson by destroying one of them with your weapon, but a demonic voice vociferates at your actions – it was one of Gnolrek’s eyes! In a fit of rage, he sends a pack of demons after you and Daitzsa in an act of revenge. The cavern is a portal to Hell!

With the help of a mysterious power granted by an unknown entity, you and Daitzsa manage to escape and return to the tribe. Everyone thinks you were attacked by a demon of the Tufted Ears, one of the surrounding tribes. The only pack member who remains suspicious is Gunyx, who is certain that Daitzsa was cheating on him. Now he wants to catch you alone and hurt you badly.

Daitzsa and you are taken to the shaman’s hut to be treated, and you fall asleep. Gnolrek's general sends you a dream, in which he orders you to complete three trials in no more than 30 days if you want your sin to be forgiven, or else Daitzsa will be sacrificed and you will be hunted down. He warns you not to tell your pack of what happened in the cavern, or they’ll be destroyed.

You decide that it’s not worth obeying those demon scumbags – it’s better to seek allies to face Gnolrek instead. One of the trials you were given is to destroy a hidden dwarven fortress located in the same cavern you escaped from, as the dwarves keep the forest untainted with their powers. You’ll seek their help instead - it will be your first stop!

RECAP OF THREAD 2

After falling asleep again, you wake up in the morning and overhear a conversation between the shaman and Willow, the pack leader. You learn that the tribe will summon a demon to retaliate against the Tufted Ears. The summoning will start at midnight, and it’ll take the shaman five days to complete the invocation. A human has been kidnapped for sacrifice in order to begin the ritual.

You resolve to continue training while recovering from your wounds. Once you are in better shape, you’ll head to the dwarf fortress. As you leave the shaman’s hut, you get into an unpleasant encounter with Diana, a pack member who stole credit from you for killing a big boar weeks ago, humiliating you in front of everyone.

You venture into the forest to gather herbs and learn about Herbalism, but nearly stumble upon a chatting Gunyx and Diana. Hidden behind some bushes, you stay and listen to their conversation, and learn that they’re both looking for you to beat you up... or worse.

Making sure to not be seen, you return to the tribe to see Rakuta, a herbalist with great knowledge of plants. You ask him to teach you about Herbalism, but the shaman barges into the hut to ask him for assistance, so his daughter Nikita ends up being your teacher for a one-hour session. You learn a few Herbalism recipes with her.

After the class is over, you venture into the forest again to gather the herbs you need to make a Healing Concoction, a potion that will speed up your recovery. It takes you a while, but eventually you find all the ingredients needed.

As you return to the tribe to make the concoction, you stumble upon two humans abducted by a pair of Molkaras, a rival tribe of pervert gnolls. Those molks have no business in your territory, so you kill one of them and his companion escapes.

You consider whether to release the humies or leave them to their fate, conflicted by how their species abducted your mom when you were a child. However, you come to terms with your resentfulness and decide to release them… only to be ambushed by a group of humies at the last moment. They think you wanted to hurt the captives, and there’s no use in reasoning with them…

All of a sudden, seven molkaras –including the one that ran away- emerge from the surrounding bushes. They were going to ambush you, but were clueless that the humans were there. A battle between both sides ensues and you take the opportunity to run away.

You wait for the chaos to cease, then return to the battlefield, only to find all the molks dead. A mysterious green wolf is burying the corpses – you talk to it and learn that its name is Luna. She’s the benevolent spirit of the forest who granted you the power to escape the demonic cavern.

As you help Luna bury the corpses, she suddenly senses a member of your pack approaching and runs away to avoid being seen. Before you can react, Diana appears out of nowhere, surprised at the sight of you burying molkaras!

RECAP OF THREAD 3

Diana threatens to tell the others that you were burying molks if you don’t give her credit for the kills she thinks you are responsible for. After realizing that she fears your strength, you decide that you won’t have any of her crap by telling her to buzz off, to which she complies begrudgingly.

You return to the tribe, but Rika, Daitzsa’s mom, invites you to her hut, only to accuse you that you were somehow responsible for her daughter’s wounds and demands to know the truth.

Without a single word, you release yourself off her grip and leave her home. You intend to go to your hut, but stumble upon Diana, who attempts to ignore you.
After reflecting on the importance of two Omegas working together and becoming friends, you try to leave the spitefulness behind and greet Dyana, but as expected, it doesn’t go well. You forget about it and head back to your hut to make the damn healing potion for once and for all, then drink it to the last drop.

You find a suspicious crow in your hut, who follows at you without doing anything else. Paranoid over demons watching your steps, you decide to go ask the shaman about the signifiance of these birds... but on the way to his hut, you stumble upon a terrifying scene - near the altar of sacrifice where the abducted humie lies unconscious, dozens of demonic crows surround you, intending to attack you!

Aided by an unknown being granting you powers, you end up channeling a ball of pure light in your hands which ends up destroying many of the crows - the rest fly away, scared by your new mysterious ability. You vomit a black bile afterwards, and feel much cleaner inside - the influence of demons has left you!

Confused by the weirdness of the situation and utterly lost regarding what to do now, you decide to return to your hut and pray to Mom for guidance. Drowsiness invades you whole, and you fall asleep, only to wake up in a strange dimension where you meet up with your deceased mother after years of absence. You learn that she became an angel in the service of Anu, the 'supreme' God according to her.

Anu communicates with you and explains that the Armageddon - the final battle between good and evil - is coming near, and he wants you to become his champion of light against the demons. The mission he tasks you with is to seal the six portals to Hell that exist all over the world. You accept his blessing, and he grants you many new powers. He orders you to go to the dwarven fortress as soon as possible to receive your training.

As you wake up and realize it's nighttime, you get surprised by your Dad's invitation to the summoning ritual. Gnolrek lied to the shaman and made an arrangement so that YOU sacrifice the humie! Clearly, the demon god wants to get his influence back in you...

Your pack waits impatiently to rejoice in the humie's suffering. It’s the first time they stare at you with proud eyes, happy that you’re one of them. They respect you, which is what you always wanted. It feels so nice, yet wrong as well, considering the nature of this ritual...

As you gaze at the spear you’re holding in your hands, the voices of your people reach your ears. They demand for blood to be spilled in the name of Gnolrek.

“RIP OUT THE INTESTINES!!! LET US SEE THEM!!!”

“CRUSH ITS RIBS INTO DUST, HYENUS!!!”

“PEEL OFF THE SKIN OFF ITS FACE AND DISPLAY IT BEFORE OF ITS EYES!!!”

No... you can't do this! Violence and love for fighting may be ingrained in your gnoll nature, but torture is on a whole other level! Demons are so messed up… the same creature that's offering you his powers is the one that nearly killed you and Datz and is threatening to invade the world! You cannot give in to temptation...

... or can you?

Maybe there is still time for you to follow Gnolrek... he knows what you want, unlike Anu! He can help you be the strongest gnoll ever! He knows that you wish to be respected and loved by your people, and heh even offered you a lovely mate! You never saw Natasha with desire before, but now that you think about it, she’s pretty cute… and if there is anyone to settle down with without breaking the sacred codes of your tribe as if you did with Daitzsa, it is her!

Becoming the respected pack leader and leading your people to victory against humies and other tribes - those are your dreams since you were a child, and Anu is forcing you to abandon them! How can you bring yourself to do that just because that one-eyed idiot demands so?!

... Where are these feelings of mercy for humies coming from? Since when did you become such a pansy? Why would you give a damn about humans and their suffering?! All that matters is the Bloodseeker tribe! They are your family – everyone else can ROT!

There is only one person to blame for your confusion - MOM! Her teachings brainwashed you into rejecting your true nature! If it weren’t for her, you’d be like the others – you’d be a REAL warrior!

The almighty Gnolrek can gift you with so much! Why would you follow Anu and help him establish a world without violence?! It sounds boring as HELL!

HOUR: 23:55 PM

Gnolrek promises you powers greater than anything Anu can grant you. Bloodthirst is only the beginning... he can give you all the strength you need to assert dominance over all creatures that stand in your path!

Rurk and Willow are grabbing the humie by the arms, preventing It from escaping. The terrified skinny creature is trying its best to escape, but to no avail. The tribe continues chanting and demanding for blood to be spilled.

Maybe you should give them what they want...

Look man, here are our options, we kill the humie, even quickly and we risk losing Anu. We go along with torture and we're stuck with Gnolrek because the demon summoned will make sure we go along with the trails or he murders everyone we care about. We run away with Daitzsa and the summoning happens anyway and everyone we love will get murdered. Literally our only options is that we lie and hope that buys us time or pray to Anu and have him put his money where his mouth is because we're stuck in what is essentially a hostage situation where sticking to him will only lead us to suffer.

Activate our angel wings and get to the air. Then immediately fly into the shaman's hut and grab Daitsza and fly back out towards the dwarf fortress. Fly high enough with Daitzsa in case our tribe tries to throw spears at us.

Pulling out angel wings in front of everyone right away isn't a good idea. IDK exactly how the tribe will react to seeing hyenus sprout a pair of wings but it won't be good
>>
>>4588766

>Give a speech to your tribe (Write in)

Let the angel wings out and show the tribe the new you. Let the feeling of Anu flow through you, and you have your decision.

"I have chosen a path different from what I was told to choose. Different from what I was born into. Different from what I was expected to die believing. I am not here to torture, to kill and hurt. I am here to be me. I am here to do what is right.

Leave the human, or kill him. I will not do this. I have a goal of my own, and any that wish to follow me, any that wish to help this world can. I wont force anything on you, but from here, it is goodbye.

Await response, prepared to fly away with Daitzsa if things look bad.

If we run away wouldn't the tribe just continue the ritual without Hyenus and summon the demon?

Fetish acquired.

>>4588952
Seconding. One last try before we become unable to save our tribe.
>>
>>4588951
They would be surprised and shocked by it for at least a little bit, which means we'll have at least a few seconds of time before they react.
>>
We could also try to roll charisma and tell them Gnolrek plans to effectively end the world via possessed gnoll surrogates with all the other demons and tribes and create a new hellscape as a prelude to their final battle against Anu, but too many might actually like the idea.
>>
I feel like some of you are forgetting that Gnolrek said he's gonna have the demon that is summoned rape and murder everyone there if we don't go along with him. Running away is cool and everything but everyone we care about except our waifu will be dead
>>
>>4589183
He's definitely bluffing. The rest of the gnolls are his faithful servants at the moment, why would he kill all of them?
>>
>>4589183
>everyone we care about except our waifu
???
>>
>>4589241
Gnolrek is probably OK with killing off a tribe of his followers as long as he gets to enjoy their tortured death screams. The slaughter of our tribe isn’t inevitable, however, as we have 5 days to disrupt the summoning in one way or another
>>
>>4589258
We could try taking this captive with us too if we wanna risk it, giving them maybe a 1-2 day delay while they get another. Of course, we don't even know if we can fly away while carrying someone else in the first place. Every move here is some kind of gamble anyways.
>>
>>4589105

Ok, so save the humie, save Daitzsa, and book it tf out of there...

It's a longshot while we're injured but the only way we can both save our tribe and ourselves.

+1

Convincing them is good. But we’ll need to specifically play up the fact that there’s no honour in it. Saying that Gnolrek wants to start a big Armageddon battle is a bad idea otherwise, because they’d be excited at the prospect of a final huge war.
>>
>>4589166
if we're gonna do this, we should at least sprout some wings so it carries a bit more weight when we speak
>>
Its suprises me no one is choosing the "upsie my bad i didn't torture him enough" option, why you all want to drop the spaghetti already its a bad idea
>>
>>4589596

We torture the humie, we risk potentially undoing any of the cool new powers we received and make ourselves susceptible to evil again.

If anything, after we attempt to use the magic WORD FU with compulsory power display, we can use our other powers to stun our evilly-influenced tribe-mates and use that window of time to rescue the humie, rescue Daitzsa, and nope ourselves to the dwarf fortress.
>>
>>4589259
>>4589309
>>4589448

I highly doubt we can support the weight of both a gnoll and a human at the same time, anons.
>>
>>4589835

I forget... how injured is the human?

If anything, we can get him far enough away to make a break for it.
>>
>>4589840

The whole point is making sure the human doesn't die to prevent the murder spree
>>
>>4588952

>>
IDK why saving Daitzsa and the humie right away is so important right now. We have a 5 day window to get Daitzsa out of the tribe if we don't blow our cover by pulling our wings out for everyone to see and if we save the humie then they'll probably kill another humie instead. Getting our ass to the dwarf fortress is the top priority right now
>>
>>4588952
I approve of your plan.
>>4589886
If gnolrek gets mad he will try to kill our waifu immediately.

But more importantly, what would mom think about our actions?

Looks like Hyenus will sprout his wings and give a speech to his tribe, revealing his new self. If things go awry then he'll fly away with Daitzsa.

look man, u have cool wings, if that doesn't convince them, nothing will, not unless u beat them
>>
>>4590206
Well I tried that argument when we were in front of Anu and saying that accepting his blessing now would immediately trigger Gnolrek to kick up his bets on getting us on his side and that's why it would be better to wait and not alert Gnolrek by taking in Anu's divine d and here we are having gone to the end result of trade-off after having forced Gnolreks hand. Etc etc etc.

I don't expect them to agree at all. I expect them to listen and then force us to react according to our needs.

Oh great this quest is back. Guys regarding soup girl I really do think QM is basing her off the star vs. Quest yandere that I mentioned last thread. Mostly since her visions and shit from the past thread is almost word for word the exact shit spouted from that yandere's in that quest. I know I sound like a spaz right now but I meant to mention it last thread but it archived before I could. Just be careful of her, don't trust her yet no matter how perfect she seems. I gotta go now so good luck anons, glad your back QM

Step by step, you slowly approach the altar. The panicking human shrieks and begs for mercy, terrified at the idea of a painful demise. “NOOO! PLEASE, NOOOOO!!!”

As you gaze into its eyes, a feeling of mercy and empathy suddenly invades your heart. It’s similar to when you spared the goblin and asked Diana this morning to stop the senseless torture...

Damn it! A true Bloodseeker shouldn’t be experiencing this! What do you even stand for?! Why is it SO hard for you to do what’s easy for the others?!

... ... ...

... No. You can’t do this. Sadism definitely isn’t in your blood. You’re loyal to the tribe, not the demons and the horrible rituals they brainwash gnolls into doing. You are not less of a warrior for refusing to give in to this madness!

Unsure of what to do, you simply stare at the human while the pack encourages you...

“Hyenus! What’s taking you so long?!”

“Don’t be afraid, dude! It’s not as hard as it looks!”

“Yo, have any of you seen Gunyx? He’s gonna’ miss the show!”

You’re trying your best to come up with a plan. Should you tell the pack that you aren’t ready for this responsibility and hope they understand? Or maybe you should sprout your wings right now, grab Datz and head to the dwarf fortress...

There’s no clear way out of this mess. Every course of action is a gamble with uncertain results. All you know for sure is that a path of pain awaits you, regardless of what you do.

If you go along with Gnolrek’s plans and help him turn the world into a hellscape, it’s obvious that his followers won’t be spared from the torment... and even if they were, the rest will suffer. It's not right...

If you don’t submit, then everyone you care for will get raped and murdered if you’re unable to stop the summoning in five days. The pack won't understand that you just want to protect them by not carrying out the sacrifice, and everyone whose respect you wanted to earn will be left disappointed...

No matter how hard you try to look for an alternate path, there doesn’t seem to be one. If you had a real choice on the matter, neither Anu nor Gnolrek would be the gods you’d follow. Neither a life of pure benevolence or savagery sounds appealing.

Deep in your heart, you are just a warrior... nothing more, nothing less.

... But in these times of crisis, you were forced to join a side. And you have made your decision.

The pack must learn that you’re not with them anymore. This is the moment where they get to decide between Heaven or Hell. No matter their decision, you will follow the right path, with or without them. All your dreams and goals... you’ll leave them behind for the good of the tribe and the entire world.

... And yet, you cannot make this leap with your strength alone. There is only one way to shatter your old purpose into pieces, and it’s by allowing the holy spirit of Anu flow through your soul, letting it inspire the words that will come out of your mouth.

After standing idle for a minute, Willow gives you an annoyed look. “What are you waiting for?! My arms are getting tired! Are you gonna’ sacrifice this twerp or not?!”

You take a deep breath, and all the uncertainty you were experiencing are replaced by determination and resoluteness… this is it. There’s no turning back.

“No. I don’t want to do this.”

... ... ...

... The pack goes silent as soon as you announce your choice. All the chanting and cheering ceases in a blink, being replaced by dreary silence. The confused gaze of your pack members is laid upon you.

Willow is the first one to break the quietude. “What... what do you mean? Are you afraid to screw it up?”

She doesn't understand what you meant, and neither does Natasha, who tries to cheer you up. “H-Hyenus, don’t be afraid! Gnolrek shall guide your hand, I am su-“

By sheer force of will, you sprout a pair of beautiful wings on your back for everyone to witness! You are overwhelmed with confidence to explain your decision to the demon worshi… the pack.

The tribe was left shocked and speechless by your sudden transformation. Even Willow and Rurk don’t know how to react to the winged man before them. It’s a sight that no Bloodseeker has ever had before!

You must make good use of this window of time, for it won’t last long. Standing tall and confident, you finally express your feelings to the pack. "I have chosen a path different from what I was told to choose. Different from what I was born into. Different from what I was expected to die believing. I am not here to torture, to kill and hurt. I am here to be me. I am here to do what is right!”

The tribe remains silent. Many look at you as if you were a complete stranger, no longer one of them, while others have a blank expression on their faces. Their reaction doesn’t discourage you, as you understand that these ties must be broken in order to proceed to the new life that awaits you. It’s painful… but it must be done.

You resume your speech. “Leave the human or kill him, but I will not do this. I have a goal of my own, and any of you who wish to follow me… any of you who wish to help this world, can. I won’t force anything on you, but from here, it is goodbye!”

Hoping that your words have reached the hearts of your pack members, you look around to see if anyone supports you… to see if a miracle has occurred. Unsurprisingly, nobody looks happy with your confession.

The first one to talk is the shaman. The demonic taint his body irradiates is stronger than ever. “Bloodseekers!” he shouts aloud. “Heed my words, for it is time you learn the sad truth!” The old man points an accusing finger at you. “Hyenus has betrayed us all! He became a follower of Gnolrek’s foe, a weak god that goes by the name of Anu!”

“WHAT?!” many exclaim at the same time. The entire tribe’s mouths are agape. Some of them shake their heads in disbelief, while others have a look of pure wrath in their eyes...

Krubbai continues with his accusations. “The almighty Gnolrek granted Hyenus a chance to redeem himself by sacrificing the human in His name. It was a test of faith... and he failed! He had the nerve to reject Gnolrek TWICE!”

“That makes NO sense!” Rurk exclaims furiously. “You told us that Hyenus always wanted to participate in a ritual! Did you lie to us, Krubbai?!”

The shaman calmly shakes his head “I would never lie to my tribe, Rurk. Indeed, a part of Hyenus wishes to be one of us... but his mother’s teachings linger in his soul still! In an act of unloyalty, he chose to follow a god that condones mercy and benevolence to receive powers without compromise! Those wings on his back are the reason he managed to escape from the Tufted Ears demon with Daitzsa!”

“W-what wings?!” you hear Natasha yell as she tries to search for you with her blind eyes. Her voice sounds desperate, as if she was about to break down crying. “Hyenus, what’s going on?!"

In the middle of the commotion, you hear the voice of a woman you’re REALLY not fond of. You know exactly what she’s going to do – she’ll take advantage of the situation.

Diana speaks aloud, getting everyone’s attention. “Guys, hear me out! A few hours ago I killed a group of molkaras to the west of here, and then I scouted my surroundings to make sure there weren’t any of them left… but when I returned, I saw Hyenus burying their corpses! He was paying those perverts his respects! The shaman is right - this idiot is NOT a real Bloodseeker. He’s a betrayer!”

The tribe stares at you with spite, disappointment and anger... and among all the accusing voices, you hear Dad’s loud and clear. “Just when I think my disappointment couldn’t be greater, you manage to lower my expectations even further.”

You stare at Natasha, who still stares at you in pure shock and disbelief. “But… b-but the vision that Gnolrek sent me… Hyenus, WHY?! HOW COULD YOU?!”

By Anu’s sake… this went horribly, but you guess that was to be expected. Maybe you should get out here while you still can.

As you prepare to fly away, the shaman speaks once again. “My fellow tribesmen! Gnolrek had tolerated Mirabelle’s existence... but He will not tolerate an omega who works with His enemy! We shall lose our blessings if we let this horrible blasphemy go by unpunished! Gnolrek declares that Hyenus pays for this offense… with BLOOD!”

Everyone goes silent again. Judging from the surprised look on their faces, they were not expecting the shaman to say that...

"So be it!" Diana encourages his decision, but the others remain silent. It's as if they disagree with such drastic measures, but don't dare to voice their thoughts...

>Fly away, grab Daitzsa and head to the dwarf fortress

It was even less convincing and more ill-timed than I thought it was, and that's impressive.
>>
If we do go the talk route we can lay it all to our tribe. Like how we were always desperate for their approval but we kinda checked out when our Mom died, how we risked our life to save Daitzsa because we couldn’t stand the thought of having one of our own killed even if it means we die in the process and how we just wanted to get strong in our own way in order to help our tribe. Like it’s probably not gonna work but it’s the best I can come up with
>>
>>4592072
Fly up out of their reach first and then this. Promise them safety and if we can do something with light to make us look more divine.

We could also use our special newly gained magic on a particular figure right now buuut that would be risky.
>>
>>4592076
Can we heal blindness?
>>
>>4592059

No reasoning here. Everyone wants to kill us, and, if we stay, we're bound to die.

Remember how many other gnolls wanted to kill us before? That number just got multiplied by like a ton.

Btw Gunyx isn’t around, so if we go save Daitzsa, he’s definitely gonna be there and take the opportunity to kill us, so.... yeah

Would it actually work thought? Our healing seems to only close up wounds and it’s extremely chancy. We’re not at 100%, Daitzsa is still half dead and we’re about to go to battle one way or another
>>
>>4592098

That'll be something to find out. But perhaps it's better to wait to cure Natasha when we've cured our tribe.

Daitzsa first for now.

Body Restoration only heals wounds, it doesn't cure blindness.
You might learn a spell for that if you reach the dwarf fortress.

I don't want her to die, I just wanna beat the shit out of her so she knows her place

We have 5 days before the demon is summoned. We can't really leave our tribe high and drive at the mercy of a demon, especially with how Gnolrek threatened us. We're gonna have to go back in 5 days and deal with it

If we try to rescue our waifu, there is a very good chance that we get mobbed while inside the shaman's hut.
Additionally, there's no guarantee that the dwarves will be willing to help her, or that she will take us abandoning Gnolrek and our entire tribe well.

Even with the imminent danger of Willow approaching you, you can’t resist to give Diana a furious look! That traitorous woman added plenty of fuel to the fire with her comments, and to top it all she actually WANTS you to die! It’s incredible that her spitefulness would reach such heights!

The sudden sound of howling wolves in the distance snaps you out of your fury... but it’s quickly replaced by fear as Willow’s growl reaches your ears! Your tribe watches in silence as the leader approaches you with bad intentions. They remain silent, yet their expressions reveal sadness, disappointment, and even pity…

It’s time to leave, but there’s no way you’re leaving Daitzsa here, defenseless against Gnolrek and his shenanigans. One of your pack members mentioned that Gunyx isn’t around, which means he could… he could be something terrible to her right now... and you CANNOT allow that! You must take her to the fortress at all costs!

The shaman’s hut is not too far from where you’re standing - if you move quickly, Willow shouldn’t be to grab you in time! You’re not sure if these wings go fast, but for Anu’s sake, they better do!

Ahh yes. This is how dnd works. This is how dice work.

Plan out something wonderful. Both the DM and players are all in awe. There is an idea, a little luck is all you need.

Then the dice shit on both the player and DM at the same time and everyone is just kinda sad.
>>
so about that idea to use heal on ourselves. prolly should up it hm.
since we're either getting grappled with claws or getting maimed
>>
>>4594453
No, we're healing Daitzsa. She's going to potentially get killed in the tussle if not mortally injured. We're sacrificing ourselves. If we get fucking mauled, lets leave this world with at least someone we care about having a chance.
>>
>>4594453
A 25%/max hp healing spell probably isn't going to save us from having our skull crushed.
Also, even if we survive the first hit, what are we going to? She literally has double our stats so trying to escape from her grip would be nearly impossible.

>>4594456

Wait so we're dying as a simp?

Holy shit. I didn't expect the thread to go well when I saw people trying to talk our way out of this, when we have previously established that our tribe has taken too much Gnolkek Kool-aid (useful idiots of a sort) to convince, but I never expected it to go THIS poorly.
>>
>>4594526
saving our friend wasnt bad. its the pointless reveal of our fucking wings that was the bad decision like jfc

>>4594485
Maybe instead of revealing ourselves, we should've just ran, they would've been extremely confused with the wing reveal and it would've been too late for Gnolrek to say anything

Air pressure + the push helping you drag your claws + partially blinded enemy
>>
>>4594831

+ element of surprise + possible hit on a "pressure point", we didn't do it to the human but willow bleeding to weakness or death sends a message, eh? - the enemy is probably an enraged ball of instinct RN.
>>
>>4594831

Correction: hands, she can't press both pressure points to stop bleeding at once.
>>
Also: Daitzsa is dead anyways.
>>
>>4594831
She is tough as a nail, clawing her hand ain't gonna do shit.
>>
>>4594840

Tough flesh is still flesh.
>>
>>4594842
Not in quests.
She probably has double our hp, and even if we managed to make her bleed, we aren't going to keep fighting her just to make sure she dies and doesn't just get bandaged later.
>>
>>4594842

Weakling's keratin is still keratin, weakling's claws are still claws.
>>
Also, moralfags killed Daitzsa.

Good fucking job.

Not that I wanted her to not die anyways.
>>
>>4594850
She was going to get killed if we left her alone.
>>
>>4594831
>>4594850
I just noticed the reddit spacing, so now i know you are a retard and i'm not discussing with you any further.
>>
>>4594847

What I think:

Hyenus should press his claws to her hands and flap his wings.

This will push him backwards and drag his claws, injuring his and Willow's hands, Willow's injury will be worse and harder to manage (even if Hyenus's claws didn't go far into her flesh, Hyenus will still hit some veins or, better yet, arteries).
>>
>>4594853

Now I will report you to the mods for insulting me lol.

STFU 4fag.
>>
Plan to survive:

Step 1-Use Body restoration on Willow’s head
Step 2- Watch as the already full health gnoll, grows a tumorous mass that quickly expands until her skull cracks open and her eyes cry blood.
Her anguish screams filling the tent in a macabre show of the twisted flesh. Her arms trying to grasp our neck in an effort to end her own suffering, unaware that is to late. Only a pulsing mass of corrupted flesh and shattered bones resembling Willow slowly consumes the body who still has the occasional twitch.

Step 3- realize Anu and yourself have now PTSD

Would this work?
>>
>>4594851

And we just made them know that she's dear to us AND fucked our already fucked reputation TWICE.
>>
>>4594858

Sounds good.

>Don't do that.

>>
>>4594867
To be fair I just copied what our DM once did.
The paladin wanted to heal a vilager and he overdid it.
I quote "you healed him for 25 Hp, he has a max of 4... you just gave this man mega-cancer"
>>
>>4594872

Sounds good, I retract my vote against it but still don't vote for it.

My vote is still:

>Use saviour's tongue for the next actions.
>Only heal what's injured in your body (saviour's tongue: anatomy and knowledge about body restoration)
>Claw an accessible artery or nerve rich area in Willow's arm (saviour's tongue: anatomy and martial arts)
>Use your wings to drag your self backwards and drag your claws through Willow's flesh (saviour's tongue: anatomy and martial arts)
>>
>>4594877

The newfound knowledge about anatomy and martial arts will turn Hyenus to Bruce Lee.
>>
>New concepts will be learned the moment you need to use them.
>>
>>4594877
Forgot to add
>Spit blood to Willow's eyes once you heal.
>>
I come back and see you absolute fucking retards are at it again, I swear to fucking god all you had to do was say we're little babbies and then take daitzsa and run. Once we did that we can come back and try to convince them, we could've maybe convinced the dwarves in a show of force or something and had them attack the tribe. Remember they only follow gnolrek for one reason: power. If we could show them anu's powerful too, we could easily have convinced them to join sides.
>>

>ascend into the air(maybe even through the canvas huts roof

>conscript the dwarves on our authority(we are anus chosen afterall, and they are likely diehard crusaders)

Hey retards, savior tonge is a passive ability and it means that you understand any language, and if you don't know the meaning of the word "Karate" you will learn it immediately. It DOES NOT mean that you will actually learn karate you dysfunctional single-celled beings.
>>
>>4595200
This, literally how the fuck did you all misunderstand that
>>
>>4595200
I was actually really confused as to why people kept saying it but I reread the description like 20 times and I was like is this how a normal person would really interpret that? I guess it could mean that?? but even if it did we would still need somebody to first utter the concept to us

Remember how flimsy the roof is on the huts? There’s a hole in hyenus’ hut. Cause the wings are so fast, maybe hyenus could burst through the top of the straw and ascend to safety.

Reminder: Willow grabs Hyenus by the neck, you are talking about carrying Daitzsa's corpse with Hyenus's arms and Williow with his neck and bursting through the roof, all while heavily injured...
Kek.

Also:
>New concepts will be learned the moment you need to use them.
This means that Hyenus will learn any new concept once he needs to use it, simple as that.
Can you phrase it in a way that denies my understanding of the "moment you need to use them" part.
>>4595118 will work.
>>
>>4595666
Such an interpretation would render this ability useless and pointless, why would you need an extra ability to have an instant dictionary when you already have a very strong vocabulary and language skills thanks to the primary ability gained from savior tongue?
>>
>>4595672
I'm 90% sure that it's not a different ability, but rather an addition to what savior already offers. Like if there's no actual translation to our tongue from a foreign language we still understand it, but we won't learn and master skills. Like if someone said muay thai to us we'd understand what it is, but we wouldn't suddenly be able to enact its moves and practices. Also even with your plan we'd first need to know karate exists in this world, which we don't, or rather if its even a thing in the first place. We'd also need to have it spoken to us by a foreign language assuming your interpretation was right, or else we'd have quasi-infinite knowledge
>>
>>4595854

Many languages have many words borrowed from other languages.

Also, understanding and speaking all languages also requires having a great vocabulary that even includes names and their meanings in order to fully understand anything said by others, which is basically what you are saying is the special ability.
why would QM mention it if it is already implied?

I am 90% sure it is as I said it is.
>>
Here's a clarification on how Savior Tongue works. Looking back to it, the description isn't clear enough, so blame me for the ambiguity on the matter.

The thing is, describing this power as "being able to understand and speak in all languages" does imply that it grants knowledge of multiple concepts and topics. But that's not what the ability actually does!

Savior's Tongue gives you intuitive understanding of the grammatical rules of other languages, and it grants you knowledge of words that refer to concepts you are *already* aware of, such as spears or huts. This means that you can greet a dwarf and chat with him as normal for the most part, but you'll still need to learn what "beer" and "steel" are if he mentions those words.

The part about being able to "learn new concepts the moment you need them" actually means that you only know languages from races whose existence you're aware of. There are more races than dwarves and humies that Hyenus hasn't met yet, so he won't be able to recall any words from those unknown races' languages until he learns those people exist, at which point he'll learn their language immediately.

tl;dr: It's a power that lets you communicate with most intelligent creatures in the world, but it's still limited to ideas you're aware of. You'll still need to learn the meaning of words that are tied to concepts you haven't ever thought of. For example, right now Hyenus can say 'plant', 'anger', 'demon' and 'Gnolrek' in all languages, but he can't speak of 'machines' or 'togas' until someone teaches him the meaning of those words in the person's own language. After that, he'll be able to talk about machines and togas in all languages, so long as the concept exists in them (there's no such thing as "machine" or "toga" in Gnollish).

If this is still not clear enough, just ask. I'll update the description of Savior's Tongue next time so it's more accurate to how the power really works.

We need to acquire a world map ASAP and plot a course to not-Japan to acquire a katana folded 10,000 times.
>>
>>4596614
Katanas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that. Ishould know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine katana in Japan for 2,400,000 Yen (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my katana. Japanese smiths spend years working ona single katana and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest blades known to mankind. Katanas are thrice as sharp as European swords and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything a longsword can cut through, a katana can cut through better. I'm pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash. Ever wonder why medieval Europe neverbothered conquering Japan? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Samurai and their katanas of destruction. Evenin World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the katanas first because their killing power was feared and respected. So what am I saying? Kata
as are simply the best sword that the world has ever seen. This is a fact and you can't deny it.

It's creative but it wouldn't work. Body Restoration can't be weaponized, it just heals internal and external wounds and restores a portion of the blood you've lost. Basically a standard heal spell.

As you collect your thoughts, you try to stand up from the cold grass… but your limbs are unresponsive. Blood pours out of your mouth nonstop, making it hard to breathe. Willow’s kick was devastating...

It takes all your strength to raise your head and look for Daitzsa, only to find the leader holding her in her arms. She managed to grab your friend the second you dropped her.

The clan approaches your wounded figure. They stare at you in silence, their gaze revealing sorrow and anger at what they consider an act of betrayal.

Willow orders Rakuta to carry Daitzsa before grabbing you by the throat, squeezing it hard and suspending you in the air for everyone to witness. You do your best to break her powerful grip, but she’s just too strong. It’s like a kitten was matched against a lion...

>Willow’s STR: 50

The leader yells into your ear. “Are you out of your mind?! What the hell were you going to do with Daitzsa?!”

It’s impossible to answer her question with blood filling your mouth to the brim, but you’d have been interrupted anyway as she lands a strong slap in your face. “I’m tired of your nonsense!” Willow vociferates. “I should’ve exiled you a long time ago!”

Willow tosses you to the ground, and the worst beating of your life begins....

“Take this, you worthless idiot!” A flurry of punches and swipes tears your flesh apart as the pack watches your destruction in horror. Never before has a Bloodseeker been so severely punished for his offenses…

Even as the spark of life abandons your body, your soul refuses to accept death, and you do all in your effort to get her off you. You rage against the dying of the light, hoping for a miracle... but nothing happens. The struggling only infuriates her, and the beating becomes wor-

“AAAAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHH!!!”

Willow gouged your left eye! The terrible shock travels down your spine! It’s the WORST pain you’ve ever experienced! Your mind reels on pain and despair, and Gnolrek’s demonic voice resonates in your head…

“AN EYE FOR AN EYE, LITTLE TRIBAL.”

>Hyenus’s HP: 23 / 140 (Critically Wounded)

The pack flinches at Willow’s brutality. Even for a clan who enjoys torture, it’s hard for them to witness one of their own experience it... but in their minds, justice is being served.

You’d do anything to convince them to stop following Gnolrek, but you’ve lost the will to keep fighting. No words, no struggling will change your fate. Even after abandoning your selfish dreams, Anu has forsaken you. If he’s so powerful and benevolent, he’d send his angels to help you instead of leaving you here to suffer...

... No. This is your fault. You’re a dumbass who always does everything wrong at the worst possible time. Anu warned you not to endanger yourself fruitlessly, and it’s the first thing you end up doing. What a champion you are...

All hope is lost. You’re going to die before the journey even starts. Daitzsa and the tribe’s fate were in your hands, and you failed them all. Willow is right... you really are worthless.

Good job moralfags, not only did you get Hyenus killed, you also directed the attention to the already doomed Daitzsa.

With your spirit broken, all you can do is close your eyes and hope for the pain to end soon… but a familiar voice among the crowd grabs your attention.

It’s Rika, Daitzsa’s mother. She speaks with a quavering and unassertive tone, very unusual of her. “Willow, please stop this!” This is the first time in your life she defends you...

As soon as the leader hears the elder’s imploration, she stops the carnage and gazes at her with a dumbfounded look before shouting in a fit of rage. “SHUT UP! If I don’t kill this traitor, we’ll lose Gnolrek’s favor and the Tufted Ears will crush us! His betrayal endangered us all!”

You can hear Rika gulp in fear, but she still decides to voice her thoughts, this time more assertively. Everyone listens to the elderly scout in silence. “Hyenus is a fool to betray Gnolrek, but he saved my daughter! She’d be dead if it wasn’t for his wings! A traitor wouldn’t risk his life for his tribe - he doesn’t deserve to be punished like this!”

The leader is speechless. She gazes back at your destroyed figure – for a moment, you catch a glimpse of regret in her eyes, but she quickly frowns to pretend it wasn’t the case, showing the tribe that she won't back down.

Another pack member, Rakuta, joins in your defense. “Yo… Hyenus is pretty a’ight… he’s tryin’ his best to improve himself, so… why not ask Gnolrek for a milder punishment or somethin’? Killing him is too much, y’know...”

“Yeah!” Tyrorg exclaims among the crowd. He’s one of the warriors who always bullied you for being weak, so it’s a surprise to hear him agree with the others. “He’s a pansy, so I bet the ass whooping Willow gave him is more than enough to stop him from worshipping that Anu guy!”

Thanks to those few who stood up for you, the rest of the pack gains the courage to express their disagreement with Willow and Gnolrek’s measures. Many different voices reach your ears…

“Hyenus is influenced by Mirabelle! We can’t blame him for being an idiot!”

“Why did you gouge his eye?! Are you crazy?!”

“Gnolrek must grant him another chance!“

“He saved Daitzsa! We can’t kill him!”

“For Gnolrek’s sake, stop hurting my son! I swear I'll set him in the right path! I SWEAR!”

Even after losing your faith in Gnolrek, the pack still cares for you. For a moment, you feel hope in the possibility that they let you go...

… but unfortunately, not everyone agrees. “KILL HIM.”

Natasha’s resentful voice renders the whole tribe silent, surprising everyone as they realize that those words came from a woman who’s known to be amiable to all Bloodseekers.

“This is the first time Gnolrek demands obedience in a difficult task, and you all turn your backs on Him!” she vociferates with a furious tone that was never heard from her before. “Such lack of compromise in our faith is sickening! Gnolrek has protected us for generations! We’d be dead or enslaved by the humies if it wasn’t for His blessings! He DESERVES our servility!”

Natasha gives you a look of pure hatred, a tear running down her cheeks. “Hyenus, I… I cannot express my disappointment in words… I was convinced that you’d be a great Bloodseeker, but you're just a filthy traitor! If Gnolrek has sentenced you to death for your sins, then SO BE IT!”

The shaman, who had remained quiet so far, raises his hands to silence the pack before speaking. “Natasha has spoken in behalf of Gnolrek and I.” He briefly smiles at her before returning to address the tribe. “I am most disappointed in all of you for questioning His will.”

He closes his eyes. “I shall remind everyone that if Hyenus is not executed, he will continue to oppose Gnolrek, weakening his influence in the world and thus weakening us all. He has committed a grave sin without consideration for us.”

The shaman opens his eyes... they show thirst of blood. “We shall do as Gnolrek commands, or else not only shall we lose His blessing – we shall be cursed for our disobedience and ungratefulness. That is His will!”

The entire clan remains silent, unsure of what to do. The people who supported you before now have a look of uncertainty in their eyes. A part of them wishes that you are spared, but they also don’t want to get on Gnolrek’s bad side…

Willow signals his mate Rurk to approach. With an insecure whisper, she asks him for his views on the matter. “Honey… I have no idea of what to do.”

Rurk stares at you. There’s pity in his eyes, but he hides it under his pragmatic attitude. “… Do what benefits the tribe, Willow.” He takes a deep breath before turning his back on you and walking away from the scene. As he leaves, you can hear him speak to himself. “Gnolrek... why are you forcing us to do this?”

The leader meets your gaze again. “Why aren’t you normal, Hyenus?” she scolds you, though her voice sounds sadder than angrier, unlike moments ago. “You had so much potential when we were kids. Mirabelle took a great warrior from us... it’s a shame. It really is.”

Her face goes blank for a second. She shakes her head, as if changing her mind on what she just said. “… No. She’s not the only responsible. Your father failed to counteract her influence, and you chose to adopt her idiotic views on life. You carved this path yourself... this is YOUR fault.”

She takes a deep breath with her eyes closed. When she opens them, you see that the murderous look has returned. “We’ll resume the ritual after dealing with you. Natasha is right – Gnolrek has never let us down, and we won’t go against His will just because a weak Bloodseeker and his mother disagree with our ways!”

“I’m sorry… but for the future of the pack, I must put you down!” Willow clenches her fist, intending to give you a fatal blow!

It's a bunch of enraged wolves probably. This isn't the wolfslayer, he was 21 miles away last time we heard about him. Unless something several hours ago (before we accepted Anu's blessing) inspired him to come here and he sprinted the entire way there's no way he could have made it here by now.

we are absolutely retarded and keep getting into life and death situations because we are too moralfag to go the chad demon route. So now we have our tribe/family which we do love and are clearly ok guys, but they also worship demons that are absolutely assblasted by our previous autism. They gave us an ultimatum either we become the babyraper3000 for the demonarmy or our entire tribe is killfucked to death. Naturally, we became an angel, leading to a weapons grade spergout from the tribe leader. Now we're being bailed out again by our homie the green wolf, who's really the deity we should be worshipping instead of MUH LIGHT man.

So if we actually manage to get ourselves out of this absolute fucking mess we’ve wormed ourselves into, I suggest we employ a strategy of seeking allies to fight off Gnolrek’s big demon rape army:

Alright, if I counted the votes right, violence wins by 1 vote over howling (some anons voted for both). However there are multiple votes against the violence option. The majority is actively against attacking Willow, preferring to either howl / dodge / spit blood on her eyes, or a combination of these. Therefore, Hyenus won't go for the eye picking approach.

_________________


Looks like Hyenus will use the healing spell on himself and won't stick his fingers in Willow's eyes. The healing spell requires some focusing, so Hyenus will do it after dealing with the imminent attack.

Luna is coming to help! You CANNOT die here! All you need is to stall Willow for a few seconds!

A thought of sticking your fingers in her exposed eyes crosses your mind for a second, but you quickly dismiss it as your heart isn’t willing to hurt the brainwashed leader. Instead, you spit all the blood in your mouth on her face in an attempt to disorient her!

“Damn it, Hyenus!” she vociferates, wiping the blood away!

Glad you agree. Here's my easy 2 step plan based on absolutely no extra information the QM may have left out.
>>
>>4602453
The potheads are like the only ones to be nice to us, not saying we should attempt to grab them but we should at least tell the wolves not to fucking eat them. And if we were to actually attempt converting the tribe IN A SMART WAY, doing it with literal fucking potheads first would probably be the safest option since they're chill and already like us.

However it's probably much too late for that.
>>
>>4602473
we have only so much strength in our body and moral fags already fucked that us save who we can not who we want
>>
>>4602473
We're literally running on a magical second wind and we don't know if we're going to just deflate like a balloon in the next few minutes.

So gonna have to say noooooooooo.
>>
>>4602480
>>4602498
Fair enough. But if Luna can read our mind we could at least telepathically tell her that some of these gnolls are alright and shouldn't have gone to the village tonight.
>>
>>4602480
>>4602498
I mean like, this seems like a moment that could go in our favor depending how we play it to show we're not an actual traitor and care about the tribe as well as not looking like a jackass towards people who defended us, but if you want to go off moaning about moralfags and how we wuz Demunz and Sheeeeit then go off I guess.
>>
>>4602532
This. We should still be able to protect our tribe somehow while not being a complete fucking asshole. Neutral good, we should ride with the green wolf gang and unfuck everything.
>>
>>4602532
If we have time sure, but fuck that if we can't not looking to lose our other eye
>>
>>4602532
If we go into shock from the loss of blood trying to exert what we probably don't have left in us, I blame you.
>>
>>4602562
Agreed
>>
>>4602532
Our priority should be protecting our tribe; Gnolrek, Luna, and Anu are all untrustworthy on their own merits and mother would want us to save everyone regardless
>>
>>4602562
This. We need to stop going full moralfag, some of the tribe are just too brainwashed by Gnolrek for that to work. However, if we are ever going to try and take on Gnolrek (Or Anu) we're going to need more numbers since we're still weak as fuck. We don't know how the dwarfs will react to us, so the more doubtful members of our tribe are our best bet for building up our ranks.

Plus, if the wolves actually do attack the gnolls that support Gnolrek, that's less enemies to worry about.

>>4602591
Our mother is literally an angel for Anu, she's just a mouthpiece for him. Luna is coming to save our ass now even though we haven't sworn ourselves to her. Unless we actually denounce all gods she's our best option so far.
>>
Luna got really upset when the molkara rapist gnolls died, shes not gonna kill our tribespeople for no reason. Shes just trying to scare our tribe for long enough to let us escape alice
>>
>>4602595
I suggested earlier that we gather allies, like talking to that wolfslayer dude and checking in with the humie we saved. A visit to the dwarves should be a priority too. In all likelihood we have allies in the tribe already as well.

Maybe we could also adopt a strategy of keeping our friends close and our enemies closer? Or have we burned too many bridges for that.

holy shit an honest to god cutscene with decent animation, this is better than half the freewere shit I play

:D finally getting to see a human story

Good luck on the game QM, introduction is nice. Hope to play it someday.
>>
>>4602628
Keep me posted, never want to miss out on an RPG Maker game and especially not one made by you
>>
>>4602628

Learning to script a little will pay dividends in what you're able to do outside the restrictions on vision that RPG maker can have. From what I understand, the coding side is JavaScript anyway.

I would heavily recommend Unity with the Ork framework. Or Corona if you're planning on just releasing a phone game. Every engine has one or two major frameworks (prebuilt code and interfaces) for existing game genres.

Money also says there's plenty of people who like your general vision enough to contribute a little.

Game Maker 2 is pretty good, but that may require a license? Best known for Undertale and Hotline Miami.

Finally, there's Impact engine, which utilizes HTML5, javascript and canvas and a bunch of stuff. BUT it will run in browsers. Also free, opensource, and javascript. Best known for Crosscode.

All these things have frameworks for 2D turn based RPGs somewhere on the internet in some form. I genuinely believe it may be up your alley to choose something outside the RPGMaker realm. RPGMaker does provide assets, but I strongly feel assets in your art style will well outdo premade town assets.

Additionally, being able to more easily interject dialogue and "Description" into combat/events will do wonder for story (ie ludonarrative). There's a reason Undertale (Gamemaker) and LISA (RPG Maker) have done so well, and it's integration of story/interaction with gameplay. Undertale did it via combat animations and the like being connected to the opponents/past/lore. LISA did it via status effects being connected to emotions which were often relevant to the situation at hand.
--------
Regarding Unity, there's a pretty good class that's regularly available on Udemy for $15-18 bucks. https://www.udemy.com/course/unitycourse/

But yeah, plenty of people who'd probably contribute considering you're not only an ideas guy, but one who actually puts effort (drawings, animation, etc) into their project. Check out /agdg/ in /vg/ some time, home of Risk of Rain creator and a former shitting place of Notch.
>>
>>4602621
Based take. We’re gonna need more than just Luna to dab on the gods. I don’t think we should seperate from Anu just yet because he might fuck us over like gnolrek and we really shouldn’t aim to piss off both gods.
>>
>>4602595
>>4603838
I don't get why you guys hate Anu, like yeah he is very out of touch with living beings, but he isn't evil and doesn't want to kill everyone like Gnolrek.
The fact that he didn't send an angel army to save us doesn't mean that he is evil or has forsaken us.
>>
>>4603987
Most of Anu's last followers we know of are either dead or living in complete seclusion with demons actively trying to kill all of them, and we almost became the former and are more than likely going to become the latter, so probably not the best option
Gnolrek has made it very clear he doesn't give a shit about us and is willing to fuck over his own loyal followers to leverage anyone who opposes him
Luna is... weird, she's saved our hide on multiple occasions but other than being a nostalgiafag we don't really know anything about her intent, but she sent a giant fuckoff wolf pack to save us from ONE gnoll and now said wolf pack is attacking tribemates with clearly no desire to kill us so fuck Luna

The wolves are just trying to scare the tribe and make sure that nobody tries anything, they’re most likely not going to hurt any innocents.
1. You dont see any wolves actually biting/clawing anyone
2. It is against Lunas nature to attack people for no reason. Remember how she cried when the 7 coomer gnolls got killed after they tried to capture and rape us?

Which is why they surrounded our stoner friend and his daughter of course, and I'm sure he must've just gotten a blood-colored tattoo on his tail since we last saw him
>>
>>4605005
Gnolls don't bleed from their tail fur and neither Rakuta nor Nikita have any other injuries. The blood is from someone else, probably Willow or another demonically possessed warrior who fucked around and found out.
Even though Rakuta was a stoner, he might have tried something. He probably wouldn't kill us, but he might try to stop us from getting Daitzsa and ourselves to safety.
And yes, I am biased in favor of the green wolf that has saved our ass twice in a row

and said green wolf does everything she can to minimize death; then proceeds to ensure there is a burial if there is one.

She's definitely neutral good, but may be so to the extent of semi-stupidity

A brief summary of important groups, deities, and locations we know, for people that didn't see the last few threads:

Bloodseekers: our tribe, which worships Gnolrek, the demon of savagery. We are basically exiled now and some of them might try to kill us on sight.

Molkaras: a tribe of gnolls to our west. They worship Dagon, the demon of lust. Weak but many in number.

Wolf slayers: a gnoll tribe to our north. Their deity is Ug'Drunuth, the demon of death. Few in number but very strong and VERY aggressive. Their land has the most demonic taint (no other life exists on their land and their demon keeps them from going hungry and thirsty). One wolf slayer ran away to a mountain further north and the demons want him dead.

Mountains to the north: 21 miles away. A wolf slayer fled there, and the demons really want him dead.

Wolf slayer in the mountains: Probably does not worship demons, and is probably extremely strong (much more so than Willow or a typical wolf slayer). Still has both of his eyes because he's not a dumbass

Tufted ears: a tribe of gnolls that lives west of our tribe, devoted to Xarzar, the demon of cowardice. Their numbers are probably comparable to ours, but they use ranged weapons, traps and human weapons and armor.

Humans: Live in a vast and expanding empire to our south, and have great numbers of strong and well-equipped soldiers. Have interesting metal tools. Worship a variety of gods. Bitterly hate both the gnolls and dwarves.

Demons: powerful beings in an alternate realm. They have 5 portals to Aurus (our world), one of which is in the cave system below our tribe. They can bestow various powers upon their worshippers. (Gnolrek gave our tribe bloodthirst, the other demons give something else. Gnolls used to worship forest spirits like Luna, but then the humans and dwarves kicked their shit out and back in so they turned to demons. We know of Gnolrek, Dagon, Xarzar, and Ug'Drunuth, but there are others.

Anu: The supreme god, who is also the sun. Gives us very strong powers.

Luna: Benevolent forest spirit that nobody worships anymore (except maybe us), which takes the form of a green wolf. Gave us super speed and can control a wolf army. Saved our ass twice, including right now.

Dwarves: Everyone thinks that the humans killed all the dwarves. Really, the last dwarves live in a cave fortress under our tribe. They have a few hundred dwarves, and their warriors are very well equipped. They live long lives, drink a lot, worship Anu, keep the forests untainted and fight off demon hordes every day. They don't attack gnolls on sight like humans do but are very condescending to them.

Goblins: They exist, and we killed two of them. That's about all we know.

Willow throws a punch directly at your face, but despite her usually incredible speed, this jab is slow and effortless! By quickly moving your head out of the way, you narrowly dodge the skull-shattering attack, which lands on the grass beside you!

“Grrrr! Stay put!” Willow growls as she launches a flurry of one hundred punches at you! This is a master level technique that only the greatest warriors of the tribe have learned! Only a miracle can save you from this lethal move!

Engulfed in a survival trance, clinging to life as you never did before, your body moves on its own to dodge Willow's incoming jabs! Even with her on top of you and so much in your disadvantage, you keep pushing your limits, as you know that the slightest mistake will mean your demise!

Failure is NOT an option! You cannot let a SINGLE punch land on you! These seconds are a matter of life or death!

Eventually, the leader stops to see how much damage she caused... but her expression turns into one of surprise as she realizes that you’re still alive and breathing!

“I see that your god’s boon made you faster... but that won't do you any good now, you stubborn idiot!” she vociferates! “Look at you! You’re dying, for Gnolrek’s sake! Stop dodging and let me put you out of your misery!”

You can feel the rush of energy wearing down. It’s unlikely that you’ll be able to dodge another one of her attacks. There’s only one thing left to do while Luna’s wolves come to your aid…

You close your remaining eye and channel all the despair in your heart into a howl of help, its echo travelling across the forest.

The tribe stares at you with immense sadness and pity. They all understand the meaning behind your cry, but they’re too conflicted to intervene. Even Willow is astonished by your unexpected move. She shakes her head violently, trying to get her bearings...

"AWOOOoooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..." You continue to howl incessantly, making good use of all the air in your lungs, as you know that Willow will return to her bloodlust once your call for help ends.

And you were right. “Your... your howling won’t appease my wrath!” she yells as she readies to throw another punch, this one directed at your chest – a spot that you can’t move out of the way with her sitting on top of you...

But once again, the sound of howling wolves startles Willow and the pack. Their voices are MUCH louder than before - their arrival is imminent! Even the injured, seemingly unconscious Daitzsa somehow gathers the strength to let out a feeble cry, leaving you and everyone else in shock!

The leader cannot handle all the stress. She puts her palms on her head and shouts at the sky in desperation! “What the hell is going on, Gnolrek?! Nothing feels real! I don’t kn- “

A wolf appearing out of nowhere tackles Willow! The pack gasps at the animal’s sudden appearance, and they hurry up to get the beast off her...

... but a sudden shout coming from a pack member forces everyone to get on their guards! “WOLVES!!!”

The gray fog disperses in less than a second, revealing dozens of wolves surrounding the tribe! They lunge at the panicking Bloodseekers, unleashing chaos everywhere! The pack forgets about you as they sprint away to their huts to get their spears!

Just as many dozens of wolves attack the adults, many of them assault the children as well, horrifying their parents as they fear for their kids’ lives!

Willow wrestles with multiple wolves at once, fending off their attacks easily. “What’s up with these animals?! Their bites are incredibly weak!"

Did hyenus use the healing ability yet?

if not, then rush to heal her...

or don't, I am not voting for that because we don't want Hyenus to die, Willow dying like that is surely an awful thing though.

"These wounds are nothing!" Willow wipes the blood of her face and lets out a war cry, rallying up the tribe!

A horde of wolves surrounds the shaman, tackling him to the ground before becoming their chew toy! The possessed Krubbai lets out a painful yell, insisting that Willow carries out your execution. “GAaah! Kill Hyenus, KILL HIM! The wolves will disappear if he- OUCH!“

The tribe is too busy dealing with the animals to give enough weight to the shaman’s orders. “Get the beasts off the old man!” Willow tells one of the warriors as she fights off the green-eyed wolves lunging at her.

Krubbai’s voice grows louder and more desperate. “Forget about me! Just kill the trai- AAOOOOWW!” One of the wolves bites his leg, interrupting his speech!

The wolf spirit’s voice echoes in your mind. Her voice is hurried and commanding.

“Child, there’s no time to waste. I ordered the wolves not to kill anyone, but their instincts may betray us if you stay for too long. They won’t leave the tribe until you do.”

“Use the healing spell the so-called ‘Anu’ gave you and head to his followers’ fortress. We shall meet on the way there. Good luck.”

Before you can ask how Luna knows that Anu granted you his boon, she cuts the communication link...

... She’s right, there’s no time to waste! The priority is to get the hell out of here! You focus on your wounds, intending to channel the healing spell that Anu granted you - Body Restoration! Your heart beats a thousand times for a moment and something akin to hot liquid flows through your veins!

In a mere second, your most severe wounds are closed before your eye, and you feel much more vigorous than before!

>HP: 58 / 140 (Severely Wounded)

… but your left eye is still gone. This is an important loss that’s going to weight on you when things settle down, but you can’t give it enough thought right now with your life on the line. Gotta escape first!

You slowly stand up, legs a bit numb due to the beatdown. Nobody in the pack seems to notice that you’re on your feet again. Or they do, but they are more concerned about the wolf attack.

HOUR: 00:00 AM

You quickly scan your surroundings, searching for your friend amidst the running people...

There she is! Daitzsa lies on the grass a few meters away from you! Rakuta dropped her to protect his daughter Nikita. They’re both surrounded by fierce-looking wolves!

“Daddy… why do the wolfies have green eyes… they scare me…” Nikita hugs her dad, fearing for her life. Rakuta tries to calm her down. “Don’t worry... it’s just a bad trip... play it cool and they'll go away...”

The blood on Rakuta’s tail looks very real, however.

>>
>>4609837
>Grab Daitzsa and head to the dwarf fortress
Nope, get the fuck out now
>>
>>4609837
Forget Daitzsa and get to the fortress asap. Shes going to be a burden to our severely wounded ass right now. Don’t forget that Gnolrek probably has Gunyx go near the cave entrance. We have several days to heal up then fly in and grab Daitzsa when nobody is around

The wolves are clearly not under much control, yelling at them might get us killed
>>
>>4609837
The wolves will leave when we leave. Best option is to take the window and GTFO and they’ll stop.
>Grab Daitza and head to the dwarf fortress
>>
We're gonna look like complete chodes for it but there is no reasonable way to explain ourselves or help in a timely manner and the sooner we piss off the sooner the wolves do.

Grab Daitzsa and fly off. Be aware of red auras in the area. Gnolrek seems ready to throw anyone at us now.
>>
>>4609858

+1

Beware of Natassha especially.
>>
Remember what happened the last time we put Daitzsas safety before our own? We lost an eye. We need to get out of here asap before the demons (not just gnolrek btw) send more shit at us. Unfortunately that means leaving Daitzsa behind. We can rescue her later if we survive, but if we die carrying her then she’s dead too
>>
>>4609837
>Yell at the wolves to leave them alone

Come on guys. We're yelling at them not moving them, it's least we can do to our stoner friends before we depart.

>Grab Daitzsa and head to the dwarf fortress

>>4609837

i mean we deus ex machina because of her so let's grab

Tell the wolves to kill the shaman, that way he won't summon the demon, you guys DO remember the demon they're gonna summon in 5 days that's gonna murderrape them all, right?
>>
>>4609883

>>4609883
Yeah fuck that dude, but if we kill him won’t someone younger and more powerful replace him?
>>
>>4609938
>shamans
>getting more powerful the younger they are
it's all about experience, we don't even know if anybody else has the skills to summon the demon. If they do, it'll buy us more time to rally the dwarves to subjugate our people. They'll fall in line as soon as they get hit with any power greater than theirs.
>>
>>4609883
>Don't let that damned geezer die, Natasha will easily take his place, did you see her fucking aura? because the wolves were scared by it and so should you be.
>>
>>4609947
Yeah what about Natasha she’s gonna fug us up. We’re gonna need a hell of a lot of allies
>>
>>4609837
> Head to the Dwarf Fortress alone

As nice as it would be to save Daitzsa, here is what would realistically happen if we try that right now:
> Willow tries to catch us and beat us up a second time. If she catches us, the wolves get angry and kill a few kids before we escape
> Gunyx is waiting for us near the cave entrance, and carrying Daitza makes it much harder to avoid him
> Gnolrek and his friends have more time to muster a demon army to intercept us
> Gnolrek tries to convince Daitzsa to attack us and gouge our other eye. He can be very persuasive, plus he can offer a lot to Daitzsa (forgiveness for revealing the cave, calling off the murderrape demon, etc)

Given all of these challenges, it is extremely likely that, if Hyenus grabs Daitzsa right now, one of them will die. Saving Daitzsa is a good cause but there are better ways to go about it.

We could warn her of what is happening, and tell her to come to the dwarf fortress herself.

We could also rush into the tribe later when everyone is away. That way we have more HP to work with and can use body restoration on her. Remember that we have wings that let us fly and be faster than everyone else.

Just don't put her safety before ours when our life is in danger, as is the case right now.
>>
>>4609957
gnolkek is a turbofaggot and will 100% use daitzsa against us if she remains within the grasp of his followers
>>
>>4609971
This. No loose ends.
>>
>>4609837
>Grab Daitzsa and head to the dwarf fortress
>Yell at the wolves to leave them alone and warn them about Gnolrek and the shaman (while leaving/flying)
There's enough people in the tribe that are on the fence that we shouldn't burn bridges or make it worse by letting them kill anyone, even the shaman. We should try to leave on a more cooperative note.
>>
Also, I can't believe we failed the Natasha route this hard. Best girl is always the hardest.
>>
>>4609837
>>Grab Daitzsa and head to the dwarf fortress.

"Best Girl" is a demon fanatic which would kill us on our sleep if Gnolrek asked her to do it, we dodged a bullet.
>>
>>4609989
Changing my vote for this.
>>
>>4609837
Why does it say that we have 1 use of body restoration left? Is this a typo, or can we use it a second time?
>>
See you all tomorrow

>>4610021
Typo, there are no uses left.
>>
Also Hyenus earned +1 EXP in Body Restoration. This is the correct status:

>Body Restoration (LVL 1): Heals 25% of a creature’s HP. (No uses left. 4 EXP to level up)
>>
>>4610036
Neat. We can get a guaranteed level within 5 days so long as we don't explicably knock ourselves unconscious via intricate dumbassery.
>>
>>4610062
I believe an actual majority of the inuniverse time passed since quest start has been spent knocked unconscious because of intricate dumbassery
>>
I don't think we're gonna endure a trip into the cave itself... I hope Luna wouldn't mind letting us shelter somewhere in the woods for a day or two if we manage to get out with Daitzsa. Even if we don't, same plan. We need to tend to ourselves. Our loss of depth perception is going to destroy our combat accuracy.

The tribe will definitely not do anything to her, her husband however...

Her husband wasn’t at the ritual. You just *know* that he’s waiting for us at the cave entrance
>>
>>4610420
which entrance, considering there's like 3 and two of them are hard as fuck to get to unless you know, you can fucking fly?

>>4610431
The near one probably. If we go through the far entrances then Gnolrek’s army has more time to intercept us

you are putting her in more danger probably and anger your tribe even more, all this deux machina is for you to survive not to try again to rescue your waifu that put you in death door at the first place

Why do you guys want to "rescue" Daitza?
So she forcefully gets exiled with Hyenus, to keep her away from te demons we cant even protect ourselfs from, is it out of guilt?
I want you guys to give me a good reason to kidnap her, she is not going to be better with us.
>>
>>4610773
Because getting exiled ain't worse than getting murderraped. I don't know how you can't get this

You're dying the equivalent of saying that we should let our friend board a flight we know will explode because the hotel we booked them might be shady

>>
>>4610803
>>4610812
Gnolrek promised us he'd give her multiple fates worse than death. After seeing how quickly he rushed to set the scene for our "betrayal" it would be horrifically underestimating what he's capable of to assume he wouldn't go the extra mile, just for us. We've already forced him to the point where killing us is just a bonus.

He wants suffering. He'll get the rest of them in time, but we'll have Daitza so long as we don't bungle the next two-ish roll calls.
>>
>>4610803
Gnolrek doesn’t give a fuck whether or not she lives or dies, he just wants to punish us. The dwarves are known to protect the world from the demons so they can certainly protect daitza
>>
Any ideas on how to save Daitzsa without getting her and us killed? Remember that the demons are going to do everything they can to kill us, or at least keep us away from the fortress
>>
Did you do a kobold quest ages ago? I followed the first couple of quests and then fell off. Your art is similar.
>>
>>4610915
I'm more worried about the tribe at this point. Gnolrek said he'd punish them in our stead and we're leaving them without them being any wiser to the reality of the situation.
>>
>>4610935
We can fly above our tribes heads and safely mock Gnolrek as much as we want. But that comes later. Right now we need to figure out how we are going to avoid Gunyx, the rest of the tribe and Gnolrek’s demon army from nabbing us while we are busy carrying Daitzsa to safety
