I deleted my post coz I accidentally used the word "facts". It's not facts but my assumptions.

>The level 0 proficiencies were likely from observing the combat itself.
The exact reason how we learned those skills was never explained. But yes, this is exactly what my assumption is. I feel that it's illogical to be able to learn weapon proficiency skills by absorbing genetic material or manastone (manastone is for boosting body and spell casting). Also, we were left with lvl 0 skills from killing 25 trained rabbold sentries. If it was possible to absorb skills, then those skills would probably be higher level.

I offer a hand to the big guy, but he brushes me off, getting up on his own before returning to the line. I follow behind him, returning to my place.

"Alright, any other objections? No? Then get ready."

We move up to a wide path that seems to wind around the building, but still within the compound. The others seem to be moving in place for some reason.

Endurance Long - Emils is unable to grow tired. Run as long as you can. Endurance Medium - Keep going until your form can not take it. Endurance Short - Stop after a while. Run - Run as hard as you can. Jog - Run at a normal pace. Walk - Take your time.

Endurance Medium. Or if we're feeling mean we can do Endurance Long and spend some mass to heal our current form to ensure Emils is the last one standing.
I say Jog, because he said "run", not "sprint". If he wants you to run faster he can tell you to.

Medium Endurance Jogging
We began running, and I started jogging.
Very quickly, the others pass me, running ahead the path. Some keep just ahead of me as I keep a constant pace, while others disappear around corners. None of them are behind me.
Eventually the ones that went ahead begin to lap me, including the large guy from before.
But I keep going at the same pace.

It was in the third lap before I felt the strain on my form as I begin repairing torn muscles and ease the stress on my bones. However it is clear that this form can't go much farther as is, and I slow down and stop in front of Rosh.

"My legs can not take any more of this." I tell him.
He stands there, arms crossed as he looks at me up and down.
Frowning, he says "Kid, You are hardly sweating or even gasping for air. I don't know what you're trying to pull here, but keep going."

Endurance Long - Emils is unable to grow tired. Run as long as you can. Endurance Medium - Keep going until your form breaks down. Endurance Short - Stop after a while. Run - Run as hard as you can. Jog - Run at a normal pace. Walk - Take your time.

Oh, right, Rosh expects more from us.

Well, uh, go long I guess. But don't speed up or anything.
No. 803888 ID: b7627b


Is it possible for you to permit your body to cool itself via its own mechanism (ie sweating) and not reabsorb the mass? Similarly limit or shut off anything you're doing to supply it with additional oxygen besides breathing and the body's lungs.
No. 803889 ID: c2b271

Run on your hands, then.
No. 803890 ID: 91ee5f

In Thread 1 the only mention of the number 25 is when Cynthia, the guild receptionist, tells Victor that all the guards in Tunnel 25 went missing. Emils' stats only give a vague message of "Defeat >10 enemies in a single battle." There isn't a specified number, but it's at least 11 or higher.

Emit Fluid: Water from body to simulate sweating. Just do a tiny amount!
No. 803891 ID: 8d4593

Ok. Run then.
Medium Long.
Only do minor repairs on your form as you do, repair slower than your form in injured.

Rosh will be satisfied when something inevitably breaks.
No. 803892 ID: 8cb228

Make sure to sweat a bit, pant a bit, gasp a bit, and show the physiological signs of the appropriate stress as you go further.
No. 803895 ID: 48237d

Since this body is a child with no strength reinforces it's no surprise you perform this task worst than trained adults, specially considering how much weigh your tiny legs are caring. Maybe Rosh will understand that.
You can keep going even after something break if that is what he wants, but at some point you should find out if he is going to teach any magic or push you in the hopes you figure on your own.
No. 803897 ID: 6f97db

Hmm. We need a way to prevent this form from falling apart. Once a bone breaks, it isn't repaired instantly. But more importantly, it would be extremely suspicious if a strong child would break its legs with some slow running. Yes, normal people don't break bones from running.

Tell him that you're not tired, but that you're in pain. Ask him if you can get some wraps for your legs. While waiting, see if you can thicken/reinforce the bones in your legs.

Endurance Short - Jog
Basically, go slower when Rosh can't see you, and repair your damage at that time, but go with normal speed when he can see you. Obviously, also breathe harder and harder with every lap, and produce sweat at a constant rate. Is there such a thing as adrenaline in a rabbold body?

25 is a nice round number. The tunnel number is a coincidence.
No. 803900 ID: caa53e

"I said my legs can not take any more of this. My lungs are fine. My muscles are burning."

Go with Jog Long, show Rosh that you may not be the fastest but you can endure more than most people here.
No. 803905 ID: 70983e

Too weak! Run this form into the ground, it's what he knows you're capable of. Endurance - Long, Jog. Try those things he mentioned - they sound like methods normal bodies use to self-regulate.
No. 803911 ID: cd9c79

They are not going to find us out through this, so give it all you got!
No. 803913 ID: 031add

Medium jog, we can't stop now.
No. 803914 ID: 3ce125

Only three laps? Your weight must be putting too much strain on your legs. Or maybe your stride is wrong?

Endurance Long it is. Watch how the other runners' bodies react to exertion and mimic that.
No. 803915 ID: d79f26

do one more lap and then have a leg bone snap in half and face plant.
No. 803916 ID: cd9c79

holding back is making us look suspicious...
No. 804015 ID: 600f38

If he asks, which he wont, then Emils can point out that running until you're sore and sweaty means you're a beacon for predators and weak when predators catch up to you. Also, that sweating wastes water, and running consumes calories.
No. 804058 ID: b2bf87

In mimicing the actions of panting and sweating, you may find that it actually eases a small amount of the stress you're putting on this form.

Long Endurance Jogging

I continue to jog, using my mass to repair my muscles and joints. Eventually I find a point where my muscles no longer hurt as the muscles and bones around my leg grow thicker.
I look at the others who I pass, copying their haggard breathing and using [Fluid Body] to replicate sweat around their mouths. My fur grows matted as I mimic their exhaustion.

I keep going as the others slow down and I pass them. I soon find myself the only one on the track, stopping back at the end of the track while continuing to breath heavily.

"Congratulations Emils," Rosh grins, "you just completed 19 laps. Everyone else dropped out about half an hour ago. You just beat the record too."
No. 804135 ID: fa8c1a

Celebrate by falling over.

yep, just fall and lie there for awhile, that is what a regular person would do.
No. 804137 ID: 4854ef

Raise your arms up in a small, celebratory manner.. then fall over.
No. 804138 ID: 393ae0

We went too far. A child shouldn't be able to run further than adults. It's highly unusual. It's a good thing Rosh is dumb. Or is he..

Keep panting for a few more minutes and slowly rejoin others. There's no time for celebrations.
No. 804141 ID: bfdaf0

Yes, time for a victory faceplant.
No. 804142 ID: d63ea8

Be sure to join in the next exercise even after the faceplant.
No. 804167 ID: 8d4593

Put up one finger toward Rosh.
Say "Hold that thought" or a similar one liner.
Fall over. Face first. Make no attempt to catch yourself. There should be a satisfying *Thud* as you land.

>Eventually I find a point where my muscles no longer hurt as the muscles and bones around my legs grow thicker.
Wait, this training actually made you stronger?
No. 804174 ID: 0b99d7

Give a thumbs up then fall forwards.
When pressed for the first time, ask for another minute.
When next pressed, get up but try to look similarly tired to everyone around you, take care to lessen the effect as a short time passes.

"I- *gasp*" I try to reply, but between the hard breathing, my mouth organ finds it difficult to talk.
My muscles are overheated and aching now that they have time to rest.
I could force myself to stand, but I let my form rest, falling forwards and hitting the floor as my legs give out below me.

Rosh picks me up by the back of my neck, "You guys cool down, I'll bring her inside."

Maybe? But can we trust anybody that much is the question.

Being super smart, super strong, super enduring, fast healing, yadda yadda is all fine and dandy. We could make up stories for days.

But when you tell people that you can have anyone's or anythings face, things change. A shape shifter is the perfect scapegoat. Even if we stayed on our best behavior it would only be a matter of time before someones dog dies and we have a full blown witch hunt to deal with.

If we tell someone and they tell anyone, even by accident, we're screwed.

No. 804406 ID: 8d4593

No. 804611 ID: 600f38

If we're totally hidden then people will assume the shapeshifter ATE Emils and started impersonating her at some point, which would turn all the trust we built up into hatred.

If we have somebody who knew the truth from early on they can verify Emils identity when the truth gets out.
No. 804616 ID: 3ce125

That is a very good point.

On the other hand, we already sortof told Bea? She could vouch for Emils if we get exposed and people think she's an impostor, since we can go "I told Bea but she thought I was joking" and she can confirm the story.
No. 804647 ID: 8d4593

They would only some that if we were discovered, and only then if we were discovered in a negative light. If emils reveals herself after garnering a reputation no one will think she was eaten. To do so would be unreasonably paranoid under most circumstances.
No. 804650 ID: 600f38

That's predicated on Emils choosing when and where the reveal will happen, which runs contrary to our goal of it not being public knowledge.
That means the reveal would be unintentional, which means that by definition it would happen at an inopportune time.

Your plan is entirely abandoning the idea of keeping it secret indefinitely, while getting Bea onboard is a small concession to secrecy in exchange for a great reduction in the potential harm from exposure. It's hedging bets so we're in a good position either way.
No. 804656 ID: 8d4593

My entire plan is to wait until we've developed past the stage of bizarre unknown infant before we start off on grandiose plans.

Telling anyone only serves to increase risk and forward your own end game "Magical Girl" fantasies.
