Made me realize he looks like Mobster Kingpin from Problem Sleuth if he had less head and more of that head was hat. Quite the sinister look. Might want to destroy and replace this hat as soon as possible: clearly too evil.

As stated in the so-very-recent previous thread, this is a quest thread with a game mechanic to make it a bit more /tg/(chan) related. Whenever you suggest an action that has a chance of failure or is important, roll a d20 (email field, 'dice 1d20'). Rolling under Driblis' (or whoever's) related stat of BODY, MIND, or TALK will make the action successful. Rolling over it will be a failure. Not all actions require rolls, but you may as well roll dice when you make a suggestion, in case it does. Probably going to be a bit more lax on requiring that on tgchan than I was back in the old country. Each attack in combat deals 1 HP damage, critical hits (nat 1) are GM-fiat.

This game is completely sandbox, so feel free to do whatever! Also it's been a short while since I've run a quest, so it's possible some recent conventions are not present here. Feel lucky there's no orb of infinite psyche.

Are dorfs hostile to kobolds by default? If not, then perhaps we could try trading some of the stuff we found for an axe. Talking also makes sense to pick up any news or a potential quest.

Hmm, we need to gather more information on the surrounding terrain. Can we circle around to behind the hill? Would sneaking through those trees be possible?
Is the dwarf at the wagon looking around much? Are there directions of approach where it is particularly inattentive?

Stealth would be easier if you left some of the noisy gear in a hidden spot to retrieve later.
Optimally we'd find a good route to the woodcutter and ambush them to at least injure them enough to make them drop the axe, at which point we steal it and run off.

Rolling for... I don't know, mind stat for planning the ambush.

>Dwarves hostile?

Driblis has never heard of a dwarf trading with kobolds. Other than kobolds just taking stuff dwarves don't need, without the dwarves knowing.

>steal socks

That... could be possible. More fabric is good, Driblis' group of kobolds doesn't have any looms or anything like that.

>drop noisy/flashy stuff.
Driblis and Jibblet agree that makes sense, and stash their stuff under the bushes here. Driblis keeps the bone spear as it doesn't shine like the sword, and is still wearing leather clothing and the bone helmet.

Jibblet is wearing the leather mask, her clothing, and carrying her curved sword, since it's black metal and not shiny.

An angel, a coward, a demon, a White Elf, a liar, a laborer, a saint, a siren, and a wizard walk into a bar. The barkeep says "Why the l̨̗̖͎̜͖̙̻͛̿͆̎͋ͯo̍̓ͭn̩͉͎̼͆g͚̦̙ͥ̎ͨͥ̎ face?" The demon replies "I can provide you with more than a hundred barrels of ale, sixty gallons each, over the course of the next week, if you, in return, stop asking such stupid questions." Soon enough they come to an agreement.

From Zelkor's Ferry, you can head upriver about 25 miles to Passholdt's border fort. If you're going by land, most people wait for good weather and a large group, then march the whole way to the fort in one day, so as to avoid the red bear. Dirt road turns to mud when it rains. Follow that tributary river (the channel which the ferry actually crosses) to the south and there's a lake, on the far side of the lake is Rook's Vineyard. We don't go there anymore. Downriver, it's about fifty miles to the old coast road, which continues as far north or south as anyone's ever cared to check.

North bank of the river and dozens of miles beyond, from here to the coast road, is marshy lowlands. Swamp trolls live there, and stilt-walker elves, and green-robed monks in decrepit cloisters atop the few rocky outcroppings. There are rumors of some ancient beast sleeping under the mire, able to swallow elephants whole.

Any other direction, forest. All kinds of monsters in the forest, but only three kinds of men. First kind is outlaws, meaning pathetic types on the run from their own mistakes, Most are decent enough, if you give 'em a bit of charity and remember to keep a hand over your purse. Not many survive more than a few weeks. Second is bandits, meaning hardened thieves and murderers who've made the forest their home. They'll take everything you have and afterward, if you're lucky, ransom you back to civilized folk naked and bereft but i

We made you our leader. We followed you through deathtraps and took casualties under your orders. We just saved your life when you were so blinded by hatred that you may as well have impaled yourself on her sword. We did all this because we owe you debts of money, blood, and friendship, but those debts are nearly resolved from your costly and suicidal behavior. I don't understand how you can derive such pleasure from the spite of an angel who is bending over in pain just to bring herself to even speak with you, or why you subsequently WANT her to kill you when that would just please her greatly, but this bickering has to end immediately. We owe her a debt. We have not paid that debt with anything but death and insults. Worst-case scenario, we are all judged by the gods themselves for dereliction of duty and divine assault.

I swore an oath to pay my debt to you but choosing to risk eternal damnation from the gods for everyone who works for you will pay that debt in SECONDS. We actually liked working for you when you weren't assaulting our client.

Azure orders the party to group together. The buildings are dilapidated, they won't last very long so the party needs to prepare to move. The plan is to create a series of campfires to pass through the woods safely until they

"I do not know how to convey this to you, Azure. But...I died many years ago. What you see before you," Nin gestures to his broken body, "is an empty husk. Bereft of purpose and incapable of any sort of happiness or fulfillment. Do you understand? I care for all of you so much, but such feelings go against my nature. Is it any wonder I wish for death? I don't know why fate keeps conspiring to keep me alive.

But all I want is to help you, protect you, ease your suffering. For you, Kent, Pog, Rhea, everybody. And I have failed. A demon with a cracked soul does not make a good leader, but I will try to do better. I'll even ... apologize to Jalkaren, and try to stop provoking her. If she's not still trying to kill me."

Kent looks as confused as someone who's face is completely covered can look. NIN bleeds everywhere, cursing the angel, Azure ranting about something or other, NIN seeming... repentant? Odd times indeed.

Regardless, gold has been retrieved, and there's the matter of getting everything back to camp. If they want to make good time it seems like Pog should carry the gold and NIN. Probably best to leave the corpses here, unless we can get a long distance resurrection going. Speaking of...

Kent turns to Azure, strategically positioning themselves so her body obscures his hands from Nistamatsin.

"Youre in charge of talking to the Angel now, right? I can't tell if she can see me sign, so could you send a message out asking about resurrections? I'd bring it up with her myself if I could be sure it wasn't falling on blind eyes, but I think two extra bodies would go a long way towards getting everyone and everything back to town in decent shape, especially if we don't have to pay anyone extra for a delivery fee."

Azure writes up a draft on what she's going to say to Jalkaren:

* I'd like to apologize on behalf of our leader
* He's actually suicidal (his wife is dead, crisis of identity, etc) and has agreed to an apology
* We have every intention of completing the tasks ahead of us, but we'd like to get all the bureaucracy and preparation done.
* Few are the projects which are completed without a stable budget, not to mention the thieves would spread rumors of their success which indicates a potential rise in enemies looking to raid what they believe is an easy target, destroying the forest and the hospital's reputation
* I hope we may remain cordial despite these incidents and I will be taking command the next time Nistamatsin has another stress attack
* Also, are the thieves still under your employment contract despite the breach of terms or have you considered them officially terminated?

Maybe they should rest up and recharge spell slots. It's been a long day.

Azure instructs the crew to build barricades and fires, and take sleep shifts until it seems safe to move. When the time is right, they'll head back to civilization, or stay in this abandoned village until daybreak.

Hopefully there will be no encounters...

Most likely watching from the hall, or holding back.

These two aren't the threat, they're the bait. Their job is to be as subtle as a forest fire, forcing you to pay attention to the very visible threat while the killer uses the distraction to go in for the kill.

As frustrating as it is, you need to ignore these two and focus on finding and eliminating the third.

And they've earned little of your loyalty.

Tell her that she might want to check out where exactly those orders originate from because someone clearly knew quite a bit about mana beasts.
No. 930672 ID: bcc41d

If you want to backtrack that, you can say the Matron mentioned communities that were living WITH mana beasts - and you may have misunderstood it for something intentional as opposed to just, y'know, living conditions where mana beasts are really abundant.

Or you can say that some Mana Beasts appear more than just a little intelligent, so it doesn't really surprise you that some places are toeing the line - and if she does want to explore the issue, to take it up with the Matron as a research project. You'd suggest she start setting up an investigation into slimes, though, given Emils' story. They should be relatively non-threatening and perhaps some do remember the Dragons. If so she'd have actual first-hand sources of information.

So, what about Dragon artifacts? How do they work, typically?

Tell her that the bracelets everyone wears are the key, but you don't know how to unlock their true powers. Emils did something with a spider mana beast, but asking for more from them would be the equivalent of requesting a guard captain to personally crown you empress. You need help unlocking these abilities and you need it soon.

Candy and Roxie are free to pass on info between each other for now. As their guide spirits you may now suggest to both of them while connected as well. Remember that Relina can hear you too!

Also an awkward side note. Please try and remember that while The Herd is a spinoff/sequel to Blind Quest. Reading Blind Quest isn't supposed to be required to enjoy/understand The Herd. Not everyone in the thread has read it, and might not understand some of the things being brought up.

>"You have an guide spirits too!?"
To be fair, neither of you told Relina to keep that a secret. While we’re on that subject, Candy, Roxie’s guide spirits are in the light enchantment stone on her necklace. Roxie, Candy’s guide spirits are in the fire enchantment stone on her earring.

.....ok, so after exchanging info with each other, we guide spirits have some things to share.

Candy, it seems that Roxie was wrongly accused of killing the person she was supposed to deliver a package to a few nights ago and the mafia put a bounty on her, which is why she went into hiding at the church. She also ran into the cult at the delivery location, but she managed to escape, thanks to the advice of her guide spirits. And according to her guide spirits, she’s managed to clear her name and the mafia has removed the her bounty. There’s something else, but Roxie’s spirits don’t want us to say anything about that while Relina is listening.

Roxie, apparently Candy is a veteran at fighting the cult. It’s apparently too long of a story to tell right now, but a few years ago at college, she and a close friend were constantly being attacked by the cult. Both of them, along with some help from 4 of the King’s strongest royal mages, and her friend’s half sister, managed to put a stop to the cult. There’s something else, something about Candy obtaining something from a circus that was secretly run by the cult. But Candy’s spirits definitely don’t want us to say anything about that while Relina is listening.

Ok, now that we’ve more or less gotten each other caught up, let’s talk strategy. What’s the plan for this sting operation?

>Candy, it seems that Roxie was wrongly accused of killing the person she was supposed to deliver a package to a few nights ago and the mafia put a bounty on her, which is why she went into hiding at the church. She also ran into the cult at the delivery location, but she managed to escape, thanks to the advice of her guide spirits. And according to her guide spirits, she’s managed to clear her name and the mafia has removed the her bounty.
[i]Roxie: "I'd to mention how most of this is your sister's fault, but I'll explain that when we've got more time and privacy."

>now that we’ve more or less gotten each other caught up, let’s talk strategy. What’s the plan for this sting operation?
I hear Officer Nibbles start squeaking loud enough that we can hear her.

Officer Nibbles: "Hey! Is something spreading in the air that's making you all go silent or what?!"

Relina: "Sorry officer. I've been using my enchantment to let the three of us to communicate telepathically. They've been mostly just catching up with each other."

Officer Nibbles: "I'm sorry to cut your re-union short but we really need to start going over our plan of attack!"

Candy: "Don't worry, we're ready to listen."

Officer Freeze: "Our plan is pretty simple on paper, but, it's only going to work with a the right execution and a little luck. Candy, as you already know. You're going to be our bait."

Candy: "Right, but how am I supposed to meet up with or find the cult?"

You plant your feet on solid stone, staring down a darkened tunnel. The wind kicks up the edges of your cloak as you look in. The human runes outside, the only ones you know, confirm that this is the resting place of Linley, and the Orb of Zot. Your only hope for redemption rests on a pedestal, somewhere in the labyrinth beneath.

Maybe the cave-monster can't see in the dark? And you were just going to hide in a corner waiting for the end to come anyway...

Oh, and train that mana! Just waggle your pinkies around and think sneaky thoughts. Obviously actual functional magic would be too much to hope for, but if you are really lucky, then you will drain all your mana and be knocked unconscious by an overwhelming headache! If you can't think about them, then they can't think about you!

Is that a D1 troll? Or maybe a naga? Not sure it has feet.

Blowgun it and run. ...and then probably die, since you came down a hall and can't pillar dance it to death.

Journal Entry #41

Hey, journal. I'm technically not home right now so this is more of a mental entry. My class all went on a trip to the Aelor homeland and uh... We got all split up. A few of us made our way to a seemingly abandoned city and we found Tessa in a well.

We also found a giant mysterious monolith!
That was guarded by a dragon.

Oh and that dragon is now staring at me.

Bring her to the faculty. This Ceer definitely seems like someone who is worth interrogating. Ceera might be able to convince her to at least calm down a little though, and cooperate so the interrogation isn't so unpleasant.

You are a QUEEN, sent off into space by your mother because after 567 years under her rule, the hive that you called home was under threat, as the planet underneath it was beginning to crack apart. To ensure the continuation of your race, she launched 5 seed ships, each with a gestating queen larva, 25 drone eggs, and 100 worker eggs within, ready to set up a new hive. Now, near the end of your journey, you finally emerge as an infant queen, and you have become psionically linked with both the eggs and the seed ship.

As you are awake, you can pick the ship's final destination. Looking through the ship's psionic senses--dear Queen this stuff is complicated--you find that there are 3 planets in the system you can reach with the seed ship's current amount of energy. Apparently your mother has already planned your journey out, as the Seed Ship already has memories on what the planets are like.

>Planet 1
+Abundant with life, which means more BIOMASS
+No recognizable sapient beings
+Breathable atmosphere
-Various forms of megafauna roam the planet, could very easily overwhelm your fledgling hive
-There is an unknown, very large heat signature that seems to be coming from a large portion of the planet's crust. If you didn't know any better, you would say it's a living creature, but that's impossible, nothing can grow that large.

>Planet 2
+Covered in liquid water, with various aquatic lifeforms infesting the planet beneath
+Gives off some kind of radiation, indicating that there is some kind of power source down there
-...That radiation means there was likely some form of sapient life on the planet, and colonizing it would violate the Laws of the Hive if it still lives there.

Tell her that if she enjoys being alive so much, then she shouldn't have given herself a reputation of helping others escape. You're only here because she's helped others escape. Meaning it's her own fault that you're here now, asking her for the same help she's given to everyone that's come before you.

Let's put as bluntly as possible doc, you can either help us out of here and get a chance for a better life, or you can DIE in here. this place is death trap and you know it. there's already rumors that you know a way out of this place, it's only a matter of time before the Director finds out. so do you want to stay here and die, or try to get out with your life?

>"Arza, Penn."

Vanski says our names less to get our attention, and more to buy time to construct what he's going to say to us.

>"You won't be talking to the CAI directly. ASE - that's the Alliance of the Silhouette Empire - are hooking the CAI up to a data output terminal, which you will be reading off of."
>"No talking to the CAI directly? Really?" asks Arza.
>"Take it up with ASE if you have a problem with that. There is a dedicated CAI study lab. There will always be a guard there to walk you through through the entry and exit procedures. You'll both be in guest room number 5."

He walks around the desk to us.

>"And remember that no matter who gets access to protect or study the CAI, the CAI remains mine."

This insectoid alien, who's gotten insensibly close to us, waves us off with his clasper.

I kindof agree with this guy's points. In general, it seems like trying to verbally own this guy may just cause more harm of one variety or another.

If feasible, maybe see if you can call Arza from the lab. Dunno, really.

Sure he MAY be after our body and MAY just break our mind, but if we dont follow him or at least see this through. May becomes WILL. Plus like another post we are an emperor clone and they already have our biological data. Why not just grow your own emperor? Probably can't if they havent yet.
