last thread >>5304745it's a normal game night with your younger sister and a foreign girl who you met on the street. except, you've all been sucked into the game. you and your sword-wielding sister are alone in a graveyard, and you've just equipped a bucket to replace your egg. your options are:1) Investigate a large open tomb2) Scare your sister with a pat3) Kick a tombstone
>>5361548>Investigate a large open tombBucket Bro and Sword Sister have returned!
>>5361548>2) Scare your sister with a pat
>>5361548>Kick a tombstoneLet's DO this!
>>5361548>Scare your sister with a patonly AFTER that will we>Investigate a large open tomb
>>5361548Knew Bucket Bro and Sword Sis would make their glorious return. Welcome to /qst/ life, QM.
for a refresher on rules, the first choice will usually get picked, but repeating digits can override that! and, posts that aren't first or digits can influence later choices!>>5361556>>5361562you begin blindly walking to the mausoleum with her, stumbling into a few gravestones. as she pauses near the entrance, you peek out from under the bucket. you decide it would be funny to suddenly pat her shoulder and reach out. your options for after the tap are:1) Pretend nothing happened2) Make a loud noise with it3) Tuck and roll away>>5361622glad to be here anon, thanks!! i can't leave the adventure hanging
>>5361634>1) Pretend nothing happenedwe gon SPOOK herheh heh heh
>>5361634>1) Pretend nothing happenedWe'll have to continue to tap her shoulder during spooky situations as we continue in to the mausoleum. For science, of course.
>>5361634>1) Pretend nothing happened
>>5361634>1) Pretend nothing happenedAlso supporting >>5361644>Continue to tap her shoulder during spooky situations as we continue in to the mausoleum. For science, of course.
>>5361644>>5361658+1'ing the addon
>>5361634>1) Pretend nothing happenedgod I love your this artbackground looks kinda vaporwavey
>>5361636>>5361644>>5361652>>5361658>>5361673you sneakily tap her shoulder and she thinks nothing of it at first. however, combined with your innocent act (how could you possibly do this while wearing a bucket?) and more tapping, she becomes more convinced she is being haunted. you both trek through the mausoleum and come across a damp hall with a locked door, lined with urns. moisture and mold are everywhere. your options are:1) Kick over all the urns to look for the key2) Dramatically reveal it was you all along3) Give her a comforting hug and stop>>5362211i deeply appreciate the compliment anon! background is done with a pixel looking brush because they're in a game world
>>53634741) Kick over all the urns to look for the keyThe time is not yet right for a dramatic reveal NOR for a comforting sibling snuggle.
>>5361548Oh, and btw: you can't link a dead trhead, but you can link https://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/2022/5304745/
>>5363474>3) Give her a comforting hug and stop
>>5363475+1 for urnkicker
>>5363475you gleefully start kicking the urns, guided by years of video game experience, and your sister follows your lead. one by one they shatter against the walls and floor, leaving pools of wet ash and shards of dark ceramic. this turns out to have been a bad idea, as you don't find a key, and the slick remains begin to pool together, forming a suggestive figure. the hallway starts to feel like a boss room. your options are:1) Run away from it together2) Distract it so your sister can attack3) Start apologizing to the mud>>5363511my apologies but i drew this one first, you will get your hug!!
>>53636362) Distract it so your sister can attackI honestly didn't expect you to take this quest so seriously, QM. It's very comfy now.t. >>5362211
>>5363636>2) Distract it so your sister can attack
>>5363636>2) Distract it so your sister can attackThe bucket has given us the defense we need to be the tank of the party
>>5363636Damn QM, the definition of volume and lighting with these simple brush strokes is really on point.Wonder what your art looks like with your power limiter off.
>>5363636>3) Start apologizing to the mud
>>5363636>2) Distract it so your sister can attackMaybe if we defeat it it can join our party. We need more DPS characters.
>>5363636>1) Run away from it together
>>5363636Mud girl can join the party
Where's the foreign girl?
>>5363641you take a step towards the Corpse Mud intending to draw its attention, and it grabs your head faster than you expect. thankfully, your sister is already on the move, and she cleanly slices away its attacking arm before it gives you a concussion. you can't judge if the mass took damage, and the arm drops onto the ash-caked floor, slowly rejoining the body. you're still stuck and it begins winding up for a headbutt. your options are:1) Remove the bucket and dodge2) Hold your breath and tackle3) Apologize to the mud>>5363657thank you! that's mainly what i aim for, i don't render hardcore>>5365470they got separated!
>>5365887>2) Hold your breath and tackle
>>5365887>2) Hold your breath and tackleDefeat the mud slime for big XP gains.
>>5365887>1) Remove the bucket and dodge
>>5365887>3) Apologize to the mud
>>53658871) Remove the bucket and dodgeBucket gives 0 protection desu. If anything, each hit we take will just deafen us.
>>5366177Counterpoint: we look good in it and it lets us have a alliterative hero name.
>>5366279Counterpoint: we absolutely don't look good with a bucket over the head.
>>5366177 (dubs)you remove the bucket and roll to the side, only to find the mud fixated on the bucket instead of mauling you and your sister, who also pauses. the fighting stops, and the Corpse Mud partially retreats into the plastic, shivering. you realize you did a kind of bad thing, like taking a snail out of its shell. both you and your sister try to comfort the wet lump. your next options are:1) Leave with your sister quietly2) Apologize to the mud3) Try to take the bucket back
>>5368196>4: Take the bucket slime with you on your adventuresNew party member get!
>>5368196>4: Take the bucket slime with you on your adventures
>>53681961) Leave with your sister quietly
>>5368196>1) Leave with your sister quietly
>>5369211 (dubs)you pick up the bucket of mud and try to leave with it, but your sister gives you a whack, so you stop and begin by sincerely apologizing to the mud for the disturbance. your sister follows suit, and the Corpse Mud begins to shift, taking human form again. she nods shyly at the two of you. you can't help but ogle the muddy figure while trying to think of what to do next (now that you are not being maimed), and your sister quickly makes a threat against your life for it. but the flash of action gives you an idea, so your options are:1) Suggest you travel looking for an even bigger bucket2) Offer to be friends, and give the mud a name3) Teach it a secret handshake to show camaraderie
>>5369977Kick the bucket
>>5369977>2) Offer to be friends, and give the mud a nameMaddie.
>>5369977>Kick the buckethell yeah
>>53699772) Offer to be friends, and give the mud a name3) Teach it a secret handshake to show camaraderie
>>5369977>Kick the bucket
>>5369977>Suggest you travel looking for an even bigger bucket
>>5369977>Kick the bucketFuck mud girl
>>5370720But if we fuck Mud Girl, our sister will get mad.
>>5369977>2) Offer to be friends, and give the mud a name
>>5369977>1) Suggest you travel looking for an even bigger bucket
>>5369987you look the mud girl in the "eyes" and ask her if she has a name, and if she'd like to be friends. she shakes her head no, then nods happily, so you decide on "Maddie". she squirms around happily, and you reach out to try to give a handshake, intent on teaching her some flashy moves. her hand glops away after the shake; she doesn't understand yet, but you'll keep at it. shortly afterwards, you and your sister convene to discuss the locked room, and she insists it's completely different from how liberally you two hang out in each others' rooms. maybe another time, when you know Maddie better. for now, your options are:1) Head to the grasslands2) Cross through the graveyard3) Scrounge around for materials
>>5371777>Ask Mudie whether that's actually her roomDon't trust the schizo, we need all the loot
>>53717771) Head to the grasslandsLet's go alreadeh
>>5371777>2) Cross through the graveyard
>>5371777>1) Head to the grasslands
>>53717772) Cross through the graveyard
>>5371777>3) Scrounge around for materials
>>5371841>>5372911 (dubs)you find a burlap sack tucked away in a corner of the mausoleum, and fill it with gathered moss, shards of the urns, and crumbled marble. materials like this must be useful for something, you figure, and you drag it away with your party to the entrance, ready to cross the grasslands for adventure. time wears on as you all struggle through what feels like acres of grass, and eventually you come across an area dotted with molehills. the boredom has worn on your sister as well, and she is raring to attack. your options are:1) Hold her back from making a mess2) Share your stored pie with the party3) Sit back and watch the show
>>53764163) Sit back and watch the show
>>53764162) Share your stored pie with the partythe party needs some energy
>>5376416>3) Sit back and watch the show
>>5376449you sit down on the cool grass alongside Maddie who begins to nap, watching your sister start raging against the mound of dry soil. you'd step in, but then you'd be her problem and probably get hit while she's venting. she swings down and something underneath detonates, tearing a huge chunk out of the ground and dusting everyone with a fine layer of it. nonchalant at first, you get up and rush over to make sure she's okay, and she's just grinning stupidly. a tunnel has appeared! your options are:1) Loudly raid it with your party2) Wait at the entrance and share the pie3) Toss in some chunks of stone
>>5377991>1) Loudly raid it with your partyIt's time for big loot.
>>53779913) Toss in the eggwe need hair, not salmonella
>>5377991>1) Loudly raid it with your party>>5378074-1
>>53779913.5) Toss in the egg
>>5377991Toss in the egg
>>5377991>3) Toss in the egg
4) Toss in the egg with Style.
>>5377995>>5378088 (dubs)you all pour into the tunnel with no caution for the noise it causes, and a reasonable amount of bloodlust. upon stepping in, you find the roughness of the walls give way to a damaged wooden support frame, and a short distance away, a wealth of items. you all bask in the luxury of fine vases and decor, and more importantly, weapons. your sister darts around touching everything hanging on the walls, the mud girl starts to climb onto the ceiling for what you imagine to be a better view of it all, and you push the lid off a large ivory box to find a set of armor. your next options are:1) Toss away the egg to equip new gear2) Start throwing everything into your bag3) Celebrate the find together with pie
>>5381380>1) Toss away the egg to equip new gearHopefully we can find a helmet to replace our dear bucket that we had to give up to our slime girl.
>>5381380>1) Toss away the egg to equip new gear>Ask Maddie if she wants to eat our egg
>>5381398+1, our egg must not go to waste
>>5381398>1) Toss away the egg to equip new gear>Ask Maddie if she wants to eat our egg
>>5381380>1) Toss away the egg to equip new gear>>5381398that's gross
>>5381398+1>>5382748she has to eat the whole egg
my apologies to the anons here, it'll be just a bit longer until i finish my work
>>5387351how much longer?
>>5381389>>5381398you peer inside the rich velvet interior of the box and pluck out a helmet that gleams like the enamel inside a really good frying pan, armored boots, and what looks like a chainmail poncho. but with these new treasures comes a choice, and you realize you have to part ways with your previous egg to wear the helmet. memories of the time you found it flash through your mind, and you realize you can't just toss it away. it needs a last purpose. you offer the egg to Maddie since your sister shakes her head in disgust before you even ask, and the muddy girl holds it while you explain how it's a gift. your sister chimes in asking for one too, and you motion to the boots and give a thumbs up while putting on the rest of the armor. Maddie is deeply confused, but it seems she'll eat the egg. as she prepares, your eyes scan the room is to pick a new weapon. your choices are:1) Snake staff2) Rapier3) Bamboo spear4) Stuffed bird5) Short knife6) Box lid>>5392267and i made it! rather late but it counts
>>5392279>3) Bamboo spearMain weapon>2) RapierBackup weapon
>>5392279>4) Stuffed birdMain weapon>6) Box lidShield!
>>53922791) Snake staff2) Rapier
morning post tomorrow/today, sorry for the slight wait after such a long one! it will be good, and if the thread doesn't make it another will be made
>>5392279>3) Bamboo spear>4) Stuffed bird
>>5392279>3) Bamboo spear>6) Box lid
>>5392289while looting the room and shoving things into your bag, you pick up a bamboo spear from a large ceramic vase. the supple texture and weight feels satisfying in your hand. you grab the rapiers off the wall too, figuring you'll keep one and sell the rest. suddenly, a dialogue box pops up over Maddie, informing everyone of her evolution to a "Plague Mud" after eating your egg. nothing else about her seems to change, but you get a look of horror from your sister. this doesn't last though, as one of the tunnel walls violently collapses with a few dusty creatures burrowing in. your next options are:1) Take one more thing and run with everyone outside2) Take a hostage in your bag and run with them outside3) Stay and fight together in the tunnel
>>5393928>Take the stuffed bird and flee
>>5393928>Take the snake staff and run with everyone outside
>>5393928>Take the snake staff and run with everyone outsideCan we forget the egg ever happened please?
>>5394968Maddie has plague. Deal with it.
>>5393928>2) Take a hostage in your bag and run with them outside
>>5393931you sling the bird onto your back and signal to your sister and Maddie to run, but they're already leaving with all they can grab too. as you escape outside you see a few trails of dirt snaking around the plains behind your party, and a small group of the creatures pops up ahead. armored rabbits bark orders at you all, and you learn that you've robbed some nobleman's hidden storage. your sister jumps out ahead to attack with a new boost to her running, but you have enough time to shout something:1) "Don't attack!"2) "Grab one!"3) "YEEAAAH"
>>5397314>4) "ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH MY DEAR FRIENDS"Then charge the rabbits.
>>53973143) "YEEAAAH"FUCK EM UP BRO
I'm still a surprised how an off-topic /v/ thread plagued with cnnuyfags turned into the best-illustrated quest on /qst/.
i tried to get one more action scene done, but have to leave on an early and very lengthy roadtrip that will keep me busy for a few days, so have this small illustration at least. sorry, and until next thread anons!>>5398315your words are too kind, i hope to keep up quality and a good pace soon
