Troubled times have befallen your homeland, and the time to give a little something back to your kind lord Nobleridge has come.
For nearly two decade she has watched over this province, spending his days seeing to it that the land and all in it prosper as his father did before him. But his methods have not pleased all, and he has made enemies all the same as allies.

Now, swathes of villagers have gone missing in the outer towns and villages, and Nobleridge has called YOU to meet him and hear his plight.

You have arrived to his estate, a magnificent keep on a cliff overlooking the sea. The guards have granted you passage, and a few are watching over you before the Lord himself arrives to speak to you.
Spend this time well, heroes-to-be.

Walk along with a joyful attitude, playing something on my flute.
Inspire.

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

398721

>>398716
I look around at my companions.
"Quite a few of us Capras here. I am glad our king knows our value."

398723

>>398716
So where are we? In some sort of a hall? In the yard? A broom closet?

>>398721
"I agree. Yah can't beat an honest Capra."

398724

>>398721
"You beeeeeet."

398726

>>398716
Let's just wait for now then, flipping through my book of prayers and occasionally glancing over to the party.

398732

>>398723
Seems like a big room inside the keep. Likely used for official meet-and-greets and such

Please put your race next to your class. It will help me write descriptions. Thank you.

398733

>>398716
>>398732
watch the guards carefullly, and mark down how many there are

398734

>>398732
Right. Sorry.
>>398726
"Whatcha readin' there, lass?"

398735

>>398732
How many guards are there?

398739

>>398733
>>398735
Two guards are keeping watch by a door. It is the door you did not come in through.
There is also a window on the wall, but no guards are keeping an eye on it.

398740

>>398716
So is this how nobles decorate their spaces? Look around the room, what does it look like?

398742

>>398739
Uhhh! Go to the window and look out of it!

Roll #1 9 = 9

398744

>>398732
Of course.

>>398734
"Prayers."

398745

>>398721
I nod.
"Yeah, this is gathering of the finest sort I presume."

398748

I take out my claymore and polish it with a rag.
'1d10'
>>398744
"Prayers to who?"

Roll #1 6 = 6

398752

>>398739
Look at the others around me

"Kri"

398753

>>398748
I give her a dull look
"The Celestial, of course. What do I look like, some kind of heathen?"

398754

>>398739
I look around the room. What sort of valuables are there? I look with my eyes, not my hands.
[1d10]

Roll #1 1 = 1

398757

>>398753
I shrug.
"I didn't mean to offend ya."
>>398752
I wave.
"Bonnie!"

398758

>>398752
I look at him.
"Kri? Thats your name I presume?"

398759

>>398752
Paying little mind as I look out the windows, answer absently.
"Copricarnius the great."

398761

>>398742
A lovely view of the sea. It is a calm, sunny day.
>>398740
Some tapestries hang on the walls, and there are seats arranged around the room for guests to rest their legs.
There is also a painting of lord Noblewreath with his wife and daughter.
>>398754
The guards give you a sharp look
"Don't try anything."

398762

>>398752
I don't bother looking up at that.
"Sister Althea."

398763

>>398761
I give him a big smile.
"Just admiring the decor, my good sir."

398764

>>398758
"Yess"

398765

>>398761
How boring.
Climb the window instead and find a nice place to hang down on the roof.
'1d10+1'

Roll #1 2 + 1 = 3

398768

>>398764
I tap against one of you plates with a finger.
"I've never seen one of you in real life before. Can you feel with these or are they like horns?"

398769

>>398761
I look at the guards.
"We are not trying anything, well not now I suppose."

>>398764
"Kri…. what an odd name."
I extend my hand.
"My name is Lily."

398770

>>398761
Art! How interesting. I'll float on over and look at the painting in more detail. How do the two of them look?

398772

>>398768
I look on with interest.
"Ya know, I always wondered the same thing…"

398777

>>398768
"Dull feel'ng, I c'n still feel thogh"

>>398769
tentatively shake her hand

398780

>>398763
"Hrm. It is nice and tasteful… I agree."
>>398765
You slip and fall on your goat ass on the floor like an idiot
>>398770
Lord Nobleridge is not an old man by any extent, though the white hairs on the painting imply his work holds great stress.
Lady Nobleridge seems to be a fair, young woman, most likely younger than her husband.
The daughter looks like she may be a teenager at best. She has her father's eyes.

398785

>>398770
>>398780
"Admiring our lord?"

398790

>>398777
"Is it true what you say about your tongues? That they're longer than your arms?"

398791

>>398765
>>398780
"Oh dear. Let me help you up."
[1d10]

Roll #1 8 = 8

398792

>>398777
I nod and wait for the lord to arrive.

398793

>>398785
I spin the extremity encased by the hooded part of my cloak around.

"Which one is your lord?"

398794

>>398790
give Bonnie a puzzling look but say nothing

398796

>>398791
"It was merely an act!"
Try to get up on my own!
'1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

398799

>>398793
I cock a brow and point at the lord on the painting.
"The man himself."

398803

>>398794
"Eh, s'pose it's just a rumor. Ya sounded like ya were talking from inside a helmet there."

398805

>>398796
"Tut tut, my friend. If you have no experience these slick floors can be troublesome for your hooves. Let me lead you to a chair."

398806

>>398799
"The man?"
Look back at the painting.
Then the other is that one's…mate."

398807

>>398796
That seems to be beyond your capabilities. Luckily you get aid from >>398791 and stand back up. Butterhooves.

Just in time too. The guards announce Lord Nobleridge, and he enters the room.
He is a humen in his mid thirties, possibly early forties. Clad in rich clothing, with slight white streaks in his otherwise dark hair, and followed by an armoured Myrmid.

398810

>>398803
pull back a few plates on my face
'Curiosity kills more capra than explosions and in-fighting."
>>398807
bow a bit at his presence

398812

>>398806
"The lady, yes. And his daughter. I take it you don't exactly have much experience with humens."

>>398807
I grumble and bow as he enters.

398816

>>398810
My mouth makes an 'o' when I see the plates move.
>>398807
I bow a bit.

398819

>>398807
"Oooohhh,,, " I look at him amazed at how riched he is dressed, I wonder what the robes taste like.

bow down a bit.

398821

>>398810
My eyes widen as you pull back your face plates.
"That is fascinating. Can you do that with all of your plates?"

398826

>>398812
"No. I am new to experiences with you flesh ones."

>>398807
Turn to face the lord as he enters, then stare captivated as the myrmid opens its face plates.

398827

>>398821
"In a fashion"

398832

>>398827
"So ya don't need any armour either?"

398833

>>398805
Grumble a little thanks, but look away slightly annoied.
>>398807
Play a tune fit for his majesty!

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

398838

>>398832
"Armore helps, It's sometimes difficult to regrow damaged plating"

398840

>>398838
I nod and try to look like I know what I'm talking about.
'1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

398841

>>398833
"Oh don't grumble at me like that. Simply remember to return the favor and be more careful in the future."
I sit you down in the chair and, if the humen chair is big enough, sit down in it too and clap after you finish your tune.
"That was marvelous!"

>>398827
"Could you show us?"

398843

>>398833
He seems surprised, but in a most pleasant fashion.
>>398810
>>398812
>>398816
>>398819
>>398821
>>398826
The lord opens his arms in a pleased gesture
"Ah, it pleases me greatly to have you here. I only wish it could have been a happier occasion.
I fear dark times loom ahead. My scouts tell me that there have been many kidnappings among the outer villages and towns of my province, and that neighboring lords are speaking ill of me for it.
Most recently, I have gained news that kidnappings have happened in… two places?"
The myrmid nods
"Yes, my lord. In the coastal fisher village off the bay, and in a few of the small villages near the mountains."
>>398840
You wouldn't know a myrmid's back from their front.

398847

>>398843
"Which is closer?"

>>398840
openmy mouth to speak

>>398841
"Not. Right. Now."

398849

>>398826
"Oh boy, are you in for an experience."

>>398843
"Hmph, I know a man who knows a woman who's sister has disappeared."

398850

>>398843
Continue to listen to whatever the lord has to say.

398853

>>398843
I sit still and pay attention to him.

398855

>>398843
"Not from the Capra village I trust?"

398858

>>398841
"Well of course it is, I'm The Great!"
>>398843
"This is gonna make for a great ballad!"

398862

>>398847
"They are both roughly the same way away. Though the fisher town is a little closer, it also has some islands nearby that may be worth investigating."
>>398849
"How dreadful. We will get to the bottom of this."
>>398855
"As far as we know, no. It remains tucked away safely in the mountain forest."

398865

>>398862
"Thank you"
turn and walk towards the door out, but stop
"I do hope We'll get paid for this."

398868

>>398862
"I am glad my hometown remains safe, my liege. With the number of my fellow Capra in this group perhaps it would be best if we were dispatched to the mountain towns?"

398869

>>398862
"Ech, I hate water. It makes my coat all soggy and smelly. I vote we visit the mountains."

398870

>>398862
"Yes, we will."

398873

>>398869
"Totally.
Mountain smells so much better!"

398877

>>398865
"Your reward will match your efforts."
>>398869
>>398873
"The path to the mountains lies due northeast of here. The village is in the foothills. Speak to the locals and see what you can find out."

398878

>>398869
"I agree. I do not like being wet."

398882

>>398862
"Why have you summoned us here? To keep us aware of the situation and spread the word of the incident and the kidnappings?" I stare at the lord.

398883

>>398877
pull the plates back over my face
"Gut"
and head out of the keep

398887

>>398877
"As you wish. Any last words of advice?"

398888

>>398878
"Did that coat just talk to me?"
>>398877
"Thank ye, my lord."
>>398883
"Oi! Wait fer us!"
I rush out of the keep.

398890

>>398877
I hop out of the chair and bow deeply.
"We shall do so, my lord."
I stand and walk towards the exit.
"Come, my companions! Onwards towards heroics, adventure, and rewards!'

398893

>>398888
"Being wet weighs me down. I move much slower"
I peer at her for a second before following the myrmid outside.

398898

>>398882
"To update you on the current situation. And to keep myself in the loop of things.
Once you know more, return here so we can discuss a plan of action."
>>398887
"Try not to incite needless panic."
>>398883
>>398888
>>398893
>>398890
And off you go.
You can see the mountains in the distance.
Fast travel? Or RP while walking?

398901

>>398898
I'm good with walking.

398903

>>398898
I nod to the lord and follow the rest of the group.

398904

>>398898
Walking works.
>>398893
"I've never seen one of you before."

398905

>>398898
Let's walk some. We gotta know each other.

And sing a song for travels!
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

398906

>>398898
Fast travel

398907

>>398898
I look around at the other party members.
"Now that we are on the road, perhaps we can get to know each other better? My name is Tityroi, the son of two Capras from a foreign land that settled in the kingdom's Capra town."

398908

>>398898
"We'll do our best."
Follow the rest of the party in silence.

398909

>>398901
>>398903
>>398904
>>398905
>>398906
>>398907
You will arrive once everyone gives the Ready signal.

398911

>>398904
"I am aeon. Others call me Saiduk. What are you?"

398912

>>398907
I flick my ears.
"Name's Lily, some sort of a free agent… of sort."

398913

>>398907
Grin and talk with emphasis.
"I'm Copricarnius The Great, mightiest bard and songwriter of the land! You know legends of the Heroes?
I wrote them!"

398916

>>398909
#Ready.

398918

>>398911
"I'm a capra. We're a merry folk! I'm the best swordswoman on this side of the mountains!"
>>398907
"g'day to you too, I'm Bonnie, the daughter of McLeod, the one."

398925

398926

>>398918
"Merry folks indeed, thats what they say."

Ready.

398928

>>398909
#Ready~

398929

>everyone hating fun
#Ready

398932

>>398911
"I am a capra. One off the goatfolk, as some humens call us. We enjoy life and live it to the fullest."

>>398912
"Lily. A wonderful name for a capra with a wonderful sense of fashion."

Ready.

398938

>>398918
>>398932
"Capra. Small, active folk known for their outgoing lifestyle. There are many of you here."

You guys are all no fun at all.

#ready

398945

>>398932
I give him a look of doubt and smile.
"Everyone says that. Good to know someone likes it."

>>398938
"There are many of us, well its a capra settlement."

398946

>>398938
I'm listening to you assholes talk and whatnot. I don't know why you're not having fun with each other along the way

398948

You arrive to the mountain village.
It isn't a big place. From the looks of it maybe a few dozen people live here. It has been built along the foothills of the mountain, and you can see a temple up higher, with a small winding path leading up to it.
The houses are connected with gravel paths and stairs to make traversing the hills easier. There are also some crops being grown here, mostly orchards.
Some people are working picking fruit from a nearby bunch of trees, occasionally glancing up at the mountain.

398949

>>398945
"So you settle together?"

398950

>>398948
seeing them glance at the mountain, that's the first place I head

398951

>>398938
What is that supposed to mean?

>>398945
"Where did you find those leggings? I have never found any that were not unsightly, uncomfortable, or far too warm for climate."

>>398948
"Shall we check the temple or the farms first?"

>>398949
"Like kinds stick together."

398954

>>398948
Time to show off.

Go nearby said people and flash out a grin.
"Hey there. In need of some of the best entertainment around?"

398957

>>398950
"Can you do that trick with your plates again?"
>>398949
"It gives a sense of security."
>>398951
>>398948
"Maybe we should head up to the temple."

398958

>>398948
"I'm going to take a look at the temple. Try not to set anything on fire."
Go to the temple!

398960

>>398957
"Wht f'r?"

398963

>>398949
"Perhaps?."

>>398951
"I made them, its a bit comfortable specially in this climate."

>>398948
"So this is the place huh?" I look around.

398964

>>398951
"Like kinds? What do you mean?"

>>398957
"We do not usually settle with our own kind…"

I'll head to the temple as well.

398965

>>398960
"It's neat!"
>>398964
"Why not? I'm sure you miss yer kind every once in a while!"

398967

>>398957
"I agree. Copricarnius seems to have the locals in had."

>>398963
"Would you make a pair for me once I have something to pay you with? It is so difficult to find a skilled tailor back home"

>>398964
"Members of the same race."

398968

>>398965
pull some plates back to reveal my mouth
"Now is not the time. When we are finished with this task, then maybe."

398971

>>398950
It's quite a steep climb.
Want to start aimlessly making your way up?
>>398954
They glance at you, then look back to their work, then quickly back to you again
"What the heck are you?"
>>398951
>>398957
>>398958
There is a path up to the temple.
Take it?

398973

>>398971
"Guys? The temple?"
I say we take it.

398976

>>398948
Yes please.

398978

>>398971
No, take that small path up.

398979

>>398971
Hop back to give them the whole view.
"Why, I'm just the most legendary bard of the land, let me show you!"
Entertain.

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

398980

>>398965
"I shouldn't go home until I learn as much as I can."

>>398967
"But you live on humen land."

398981

>>398973
"Yes, the temple."

>>398971
I start climbing.

398984

>>398978
"We should stick together!"

398987

>>398980
"I live in a Capra town. Perhaps you can visit once we are done with this business?"

398988

>>398984
"Right"

398989

>>398987
"I would like that."

398990

>>398967
I give him an odd look.
"Really now? I can make one, but…. it would really look funny to you if you wear one."

I then look around.
"Can you remind me again why we are here in this place?"

398991

>>398984
"Of course, we mustn't lose track of each other after all." I start up the path.

398993

>>398979
"Huh. Well ain't that… quite a something"
"Look, more of them!"
"…are they going to the temple?"
>>398991
>>398981
>>398973
>>398976
>>398978
The path is well maintained and easy to traverse. In no time at all you reach the temple. By the looks of it, it is quite old, and rather small. Closer to a glorified shrine and a house than anything else. You can hear music inside, and the door is open.

398995

>>398993
slowly make my way in, and look for whoever is making that music

398996

>>398993
Walk inside and see what's what?
"Brothers? Sisters?"

398998

>>398993
Who is the temple dedicated too?

398999

>>398993
Frown.
What an undisciplined audience!
"Please my fair crowd, just focus! Has anything worthy of being turned into a song in here?
Your name might even find its way in~"

399000

>>398990
"Just the leggings, not that little green number you are wearing. We can brainstorm about the design later."

>>398993
I walk inside and try to take care to not let my hooves make too much noise on the floor.

399002

>>398993
I enter the hall. Obviously this is a place of song and drink!

399003

>>398993
Float inside. What does that music sound like?

399013

>>398998
The Celestial from the looks of it.
A large statue of it stands in the middle of the temple interior, watching both ways.
>>398999
"Sorry pal, with all the demons up in the mountain and all we really ain't in the mood for song and dance."
"The crops might go bad if we don't pick them in a hurry but almost all of our able workers have been taken my the night."
>>399003
It is soft and mournful, yet clearly designed to instil hope in a dark time.
>>399002
>>399000
>>398995
>>398996
A single old priest is playing music near an altar. He does not react to you entering.

399014

>>399000
I smile "If you're going to have green leggings you could consider a nice bit of green ribbon to go in your hair, or maybe a marvelous Balmoral with a green tuft on top? "

399016

>>399013
pull back my face plates
"Priest"

399019

>>399000
"Yes we will do that." I smile.as I follow Tityroi

>>399013
I called out to the priest.
"Hey! Nice music your making there."

399020

>>399013
"Oh my, this is so serious.
I shall sing you the song of the harvest of my people!"
'1d10+2'

Then, rejoin the others at the temple.

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

"Father? My name is Sister Althea. We were sent here by the lord to investigate."

399022

>>399013
"Hey! Old man!"

399024

>>399013
approach him with a friendly wave, and sit in front on him. What is he wearing? Is it horribly out of date?

399025

>>399024
*in front of him

399027

>>399016
>>399019
>>399021
>>399022
He stops playing and turns around. One of his eyes is grey and blind, but the other sharply follows you around.
"You have come at a dark time. Demons from the mountain have come to claim us…"
>>399024
His robes are old and traditional, but well kept, even if the colours have faded over time.

399030

>>399027
"Demons from the mountains? What do you mean?"

399032

>>399027
"No they wont." I frown.

"What is the music called btw?" I look at his instrument.

399033

>>399027
Look unflapped.
"Well duh, that's like, something everyone knows around here!"

399034

>>399022
I glare at her

>>399027
"Right now?"

399035

>>399027
"What do they look like? When will they be here?"

399036

>>399027
"We're here to destroy the demons!"

399037

>>399036
"No, correction. You are here to destroy the demons, I'm here to sing about you destroying the demons!"
Flash a smile and do that little think with my hands pointing at her with my index as my thumbs point up and the rest of my fingers are closed.
It's totally gonna catch on.

399040

>>399027
"So we've heard, simply dreadful. Taking away someone's love in the middle of the night. Tell us what you can about these demons, please."

399041

>>399014
I make a face.
"Green leggings? No non no no no, they would match my vest. Pairing that shade of green with my vest would be horrible. A capra with an eye for fashion like yours should know that."

>>399019
"I am glad to hear it."

>>399027
"Demons?"

399045

>>399032
"It is one of the wordless prayers of the Celestial."
>>399035
>>399030
>>399040
>>399041
"They are like men, but hideous and evil. They come as they please, and drag off all they can get their claws on… laughing… screaming…
Evil, evil things."
He points up the mountain
"They come down from the high slopes and caves, and drag their victims away before disappearing without a trace."
>>399036
"You should put on some clothes little lady…"
>>399037
"…did… clothing go out of fashion at some point and nobody told me?
Or are my eyes just getting bad?"

399048

>>399045
"Thank you"
then leave the place and look for a way further up the mountain '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

399049

>>399045
"True daughters of McLeod don't need clothes! We have coats to keep us warm!"

399051

>>399045
"Never been a fan of that stuff.
I'd rather beeeee free."

399055

>>399049
>>399051
I frown at this. "But clothing is made with love, even the smallest ribbon has the soul of its creator inside."

399056

>>399045
"That's… horrifying."

399057

>>399055
Shrug.
"Looks like I'm not a loving capra!"

399059

>>399045
Cock my head extension a bit.
"Why do they do this?"

>>399049
>>399051
"You two do not wear clothing?"

399061

>>399059
"Are ye blind?"
I push my breast forward.
"Does this look like clothing to ye?"
>>399055
"I have this."
I hold my bell and collar up.

399062

>>399045
"Our kind do not need clothing to protect our decency, father. If we wear it is is because we like how it look or feels. That is not important, though. What is important is discovering the nature of the abductors."

399065

>>399045
"Tell me celestial priest, When do they come, and where? specific places or times?"
>>399057
"Oh, dear.." rolling not to faint. '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

399067

>>399065
Raise a brow and move to the side as he faints.

399069

>>399045
"So demons come and go, what a place to live. You need more than prayer to save you." I close my arms.

>>399055
"I agree." I pointed to my clothing.
"Modesty is important in some occasions."

399072

>>399065
I try to grab him as he falls
'1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

399077

"It looks like enlarged mammary glands coated in sorrel fur."

>>399062
"I have to wear this always, or I fade away. Does your fur do the same?"/i]

>>399069
[i]"Why would they take your villagers?"

399081

>>399078
"I've seen plenty of demons eat villangers!"

399084

>>399078
I facepalm
"Just… don't even try to understand why capras do things."

399086

>>399059
"Because they are beings of evil.
Or perhaps… we are being punished for our own evils."
>>399056
"That it is… that it is.
May the Celestial guard and forgive us."
>>399065
"They come and go as they will. A few other villages have already been emptied by their raids… I can only hope they do not come again soon."
>>399072
>>399065
Bonnies efforts to cushion the fall end with varying results. On the plus side, Terrance got a soft landing.
>>399077
And your catch is hardly any better.
>>399069
"We are farmers, not fighters. And the guards who have gone up the mountain have vanished all the same…"
>>399078
"If only I knew. They always targeted the healthiest of us first."

399089

>>399078
"If the clothing is too tight it can chafe and pull out the fur. That's why I wear a loose vest instead of the tighter ones a humen might wear."

>>399084
I laugh.
"It is true. We are a confusing, tricksey folk."

>>399086
"Your own evils? What could this small village possibly have done?"

399092

>>399084
"Very true."
Start climbing somewhere.
'1d10+1'
>>399086
"So, where do we start chasing our name in history?"

Roll #1 10 + 1 = 11

399098

>>399086
"We'll get them back, I'm sure. In the name of the Celestial."

399099

>>399086
"Don't worry at all, we'll put an end to this!"
>>399078
I get out from under Terrance and cross my arms.
"Bah. Well I suppose if ya skinned us alive we wouldn't really have an easy time staying in one piece."

399102

>>399086
I frown upon hearing that.
"Seriously….. is there anyway we can help?"

>>399078
I shrug.
"I have no idea."

399110

>>399089
"I cannot know. I confine myself to this temple, where I belong."
>>399092
Do you with to climb the capra pile on the floor?
>>399098
>>399102
>>399099
"Perhaps… you will have better luck than those who tried before you. Please, if you need anything, ask the remaining villagers. Then… if you dare… see if you can at least find out what became of our friends and family up there."

399114

>>399099
I carefully stand up. "Thank you dear, that was just such an.. awful thing to hear.." I shake my head.
>>399086
"Thank you for your help priest, what is your name, and favorite color?"

399116

>>399110
I nod.
"I will see to it."
Head to the village and talk to some of the townfolks, see what I can get from them.
'1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

399118

>>399110
Of course.
"I am tallest capra of tower of capra!"
Ah!

'1d10+2'

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7

399120

>>399110
I go out and grab the nearest farmer by the sleeve.
"Hey, lad, d'ya know anything about them abductions been happening lately?"

399121

>>399110
"We'll bring them home safe and sound, father."
First, let's go check out the village real quick.

399124

>>399121
I'll follow her out, staring at the giant mess of capra on the floor.

399136

>>399118
Oh, my, is he, climbing on me? '1d10' to look

Roll #1 5 = 5

399139

>>399110
"We will bring back answers and, if possible, survivors. Worry not."

>>399118
Being on the bottom does have it's advantages.
I enjoy the view from where I am in the pile before crawling out of it.

399141

>>399136
>>399139
Oh well, tower of capra is kicking.
Time to jump off with a song in my heart.

Turn to the others after sitting somewhere.
"So brave heroes, go find the demons!"
Grin.

399144

>>399114
"I am simply called the Celestial Priest by the townsfolk here. That is enough for me.
…I like white. It reminds me of the clouds."
>>399116
"Look! Another one of those goat things."
"Weird… Why are there so many here all of a sudden?"
>>399120
"What, the demons? They carried off my brother the other night…"

399147

>>399144
"Haven't ya ever got even a single one of them before they get away?!"

399151

>>399144
"The lord sent us to solve the abduction issues. Any advice to help us along?"

399153

>>399144
I look at one of them.
"You, yes you."
I then approach them.
"Lord Nobleridge sent me and the others to investigate about the…. disappearnance of the locals here. Any idea on where we will start?" I fold my arms and wag my tail.

'1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

399154

>>399144
I leave the temple and start asking around about any hidden or fast ways up the mountain.

Roll #1 4 = 4

399157

>>399144
I will just go to the inn.
My companions surely will have a great time chasing the demons.
At day.

399159

>>399153
"We should yes, there are loved ones being kept apart!"
>>399144
I quickly leave to go further up the mountain "We'll bring back your people priest. Don't worry"

399160

>>399144
"What was your brother like?"

399170

>>399147
"I'm not going to start fighting big scary demons! I mean look at me!"
He's not exactly what you'd call a manly man.
His feet probably hurt.
He's rather be home playing role playing games.
But, well, goat tits are fine too.
>>399151
>>399153
"Soldiers came by the other day. Asked us not to climb the mountain just to be sure. So I think that'd be a place to start."
>>399154
"Hidden… I doubt it. Fast, certainly. Plenty of old paths lead up there. But the orchards up there were abandoned years ago after most of the plants died from some disease they got.
Not that anyone really minded. It was a pain to carry fruit down the hill."
>>399160
"Well he was the elder one of us. Strong and hardworking, if a little slow in the head. Taught me a lot after our parents passed away. Thanks to him I can still keep work up… to a degree."

399175

>>399170
"Do they come into the village at night and take who they will with no concern about being seen, or do they slip into homes during the night and steal away their victims?"

399177

>>399170
I sigh and find the others.
"Anything? And where'd the bug go?"

399178

>>399177
"Myri seems to be a wild spirit, she's bound show up again when we need her."

399179

>>399170
"Your priest said they took the strongest ones first. Was your brother one of those?"

399180

>>399157
They don't really have much to call an inn here.
It's more of a small tavern with a few spare rooms.
>>399175
"Sometimes they even charge down the mountain at day, screaming and laughing, cutting down those who resist and dragging off the others."

399182

>>399170
"No surviviors? odd."
I look around.
"So who's your leader in this town? Is it the blind priest or someone else?"

399183

>>399170
"Right. How often do these raids take place? And at which point of day usually?"

399188

>>399178
I sigh.
"Do we have a plan?"

399189

>>399180
"Do you think the best time to attack them would be during the day or during the night?"

399190

>>399183
I look at Althea and whisper
"Do you think the demons wil be bold to attack in daylight?"

399191

>>399190
"Who knows? No doubt they are wicked enough."

399192

>>399182
"The priest guides us.
We used to have a mayor but well, he got dragged off into the mountain too."
>>399189
"They are demons, so what do I know?
I don't think I've ever seen them near dawn though. Not sure why."

399194

399195

>>399188
"I think we've found out as much as we can from these poor humens,we should try to find the demons." I look for any path higher up the mountain '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

399196

>>399192
"Thank you."
I rejoin the party.
"I believe the best time to attack will be at dawn."

399198

>>399180
It will be enough, I'm no immodest capra after all.
An inn can be made great by my very presence, no need for fancy rooms or rich patrons.

"Hear my words, people of town name here!
You are under the terrible menace of monsters and demons from far beyond your reach, hope is bleak and future is grim!
No force can stand in their way, your men are running thin on strength and your women are too afraid to walk at night!"
Jump on the counter!
'1d10+1'
"Worry no more, for the mightest heroes are here! Tell me your worries, tell me your fears!
In a lone day, trust me, they will make them disappear!"
Entertain.

"Sometimes late at night, sometimes near midday. But never in the morning."
>>399198
You jump and bash your head on the table edge, but this amuses those present to a degree of getting some laughs out of them, even in this dark hour.
>>399195
The sun is setting, and fog is rolling in on the hills.

399211

>>399206
"If we want to find out what is doing this, then we should wait."

399212

>>399195
"Tomorrow at dawn. Tonight we should keep the town safe."
I go into the inn.

399214

>>399206
>>399211
>>399212
"I agree."
>>399206
I pick the bard off the floor.
'1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

399215

>>399206
"… Okay then. Thank you."

>>399212
>>399211
"Agreed. I'll go spend the time with the priest."
Back to the temple I go.

399216

>>399192
>>399215
Follow Sister Althea to the temple

399219

>>399214
Next time you want to help someone up, try grabbing their hand instead.
Lets just hope he doesn't mind too much.
>>399215
>>399216
"Back again, I see?"

399220

>>399211
"Come enjoy the sunset then, you can see the sunset can't you? A prefect orange red color, some say its the time when the sun goes to him the moon and that its the only time they can be together as lovers.."

399226

>>399219
I nod
"We'll head out at dawn, that seems to be the time of day the demons keep^to themselves. If it's okay with you, I'd like to spend the night here in the temple."

399228

>>399220
I laugh a little bit.
"You aren't hitting on the Aeon, are you?"

399229

>>399219
I quickly let go and let him fall on the floor.
"AH! I'M SORRY!"

399230

>>399219
"The townspeople are afraid, well thats obvious." I sit down.
"I hope you dont mind me clearin my mind here and meditate?"

399231

>>399206
Ridi Pagliaccio, the show must go on.
Give my best, failure-proofed grin and slide in a sitting position on the desk.
'1d10+1'
"And they are not kluntz like me, oh no, I assure you! They are the mightest heroes you might ever want to know!"
Give a little blow to my flute.
"There is mistery and power between them, be assured!
One of them, he is like air! A ghost of energy and power, the one who will heal all your troubles!
And another, a knight so valiant as she is prosperous! The strongest capra there is, her tits so big they could burst!"
Another fast blow of the flute.
"A humen joins the heroes, of holy virtue and might, she carries the will of the sun!
Another is the hero of love, the cleric for all your pains. Can you believe that's not all?"
Last blow.
"Last comes the lil one, so swift you can't catch!"
And now, a solo!
"These are the mighty heroes that the demons will crush!"

>>399228
"Hitting on me?"

399235

>>399228
I blink "What ever do you mean, I was simply trying to convey the wonders of our world, the aeon seems to be a stranger to even the very basics."

399238

>>399226
>>399230
"You are most welcome here my friends. Let us hope the night will be restful."
>>399231
You have their attention. And it seems to be mostly positive.
The barmaid looks over at you
"Will you be needing a room?"

399241

>>399235
"Ah. Never mind then."

>>399232
"It is slang for courting. You do know what courting is, right?"

399243

>>399238
Can I meditate here?

"We all could use one."

"We ain't got many to offer, sadly"

399252

I frown "Do aeon know nothing of love?"

399254

>>399235
"I can see it perfectly well though."

>>399241
"Yes. We do it by exchange of knowledge. The most experienced aeon is the most desirable."

399257

>>399249
I give him a silly grin.
"You do not wish to sleep in a big pile will everyone else?"

>>399251
"How many do you have? I am not adverse to sharing a room."

>>399254
"We…do not work quite the same way, although experience is very desirable in a partner."

I sigh and try to calm my mind.
Can I… do without for once?

Roll #1 5 = 5

Shrug.
"Oh well.
The Heroes will have to fight the demons for the safety of your town with a bad night sleep on their backs then…"

"Please, I've been king of the capra hill once already today!"

399260

>>399243
>>399251
Hrmmmm…
……
Fuck this, I'm drinking.

Stand up and head to tavern or an inn and grab some drink.

399262

>>399259
"Being on the bottom isn't so bad. You should try it."

399263

>>399258
Nope.
I sigh and get up, walking out of the temple and leaning against the entrance as I take out a bottle of wine and start drinking.

Roll #1 9 = 9

399265

"How many then? We Capras can share one room, the rest can have the other."

Narrow my eyes.
"Are you implying something, capra?"
>>399267
"These are the heroes I was talking about! Free drinks, shouldn't it be?"
Laugh aloud, try to ride the atmosphere.

399272

>>399267
"Not yet associated with them, perhaps I am not that talkative compared to the others." I look at the selection of drinks.
"Perhaps an ale or two would be good."

399278

>>399271
"Tell ya what. Two coins per mug, just for you."

"There must be a king, Terrance. You can't have a capra pile without a king of the hill."

I look thoughtfully at you but don't say anything.
>>399318
I smile "Of course, I'll show you the mighty power of love, with this blade I will strike down the demons." I draw my silver sword dramatically, displaying the 'to live' text toward you.

399335

"Did he really say that? Still, I would not mind sharing a room, especially if the monsters target this inn tonight."

>>399321
I yawn.
"Maybe tomorrow."

>>399334
"Fancy sword. The flashiness would give you away if you tried to hide though.

399342

>>399331
I get a room and go to bed.

399344

>>399334
"Impressive if I so declare! Just how strong is this sword of yours?"
Slide off the counter and start walking, mug in my hand, upstairs.
>>399341
"But the flashiness makes the deed just that more juicy to recount!"

399348

>>399344
"Wouldn't it be better if you could talk about the skill instead?"

399359

>>399303
The drink of choice seems to be wine of the house
>>399335
You sleep like a log. Nothing can disturb you.
>>399342

Are we all ready to jump ahead to morning?

399360

>>399348
"My luminescent friend, a talk about a skill alone is dry if you don't spice it up with the narration of lived life!"

399363

399364

>>399341
"If you're tired then rest well, but know true love can never be hidden, it always shines throu the night. "
>>399344
"Strong enough to save the lost loved ones of this town, and strike down the foul demons who seek to break down love." I say confidently

You stumble on your own robes, fall over the priest, scramble back up, fall again and realize you've somehow gotten your clothes tangles up into knots in your sleep.
MIN6 to untangle yourself. Or just dump the gear and run.
>>399412
You grab your tits and rush out.
That's all you need, right?
You also locked the door behind yourself. MIN6 to locate a key and get your stuff back
>>399409
>>399405
Strange figures are charging down the mountainside. They are whooping and screaming as they charge, wielding ropes, blades, clubs and manacles.

Your bodies are ready, and get a nifty +2 bonus to their next roll too
>>399403
You are a little sleepy still, and find it hard to find a hiding place.

Climb on top of the inn.
Time to do what I do best.

Heroism.

399458

>>399431
Ha. Silly you. You were just standing on your sleeve the whole time.
Ok, time for action.
>>399425
You focus a magic bolt into existence, but forget which way they should be pointed, and shoot yourself in the face at point blank range, knocking you helpless.
>>399426
No door can stand before the might of goat tits.
Welcome back in.
>>399432
That would probably have been really damn impressive if anyone had heard it.
You huff and stamp on the roof, causing yourself to slip and fall, bruising you a little.
>>399435
You charge headlong into their ranks, only to be met with a heavy club across your face plate.
As you fall on your back helplessly, you see a massive hail of arrows cut down your assailant where he stands.
>>399437
As you exit, you take a knee to the chin as a demon rushes past you
>>399438
As you stumble outside, one of the demons leaps out and kicks you over
>>399440
You focus your power and blast one of the charging demons, halting him in his tracks.

The rest of the demons start engaging the villagers

There are '1d5+5' demons left

Roll #1 1 + 5 = 6

They heard that one!

>>399465
It has a big, leering, unmoving face with large dark bulging eyes.
It them proceeds to smash you in the tits with a club, sending you doubling over in pain as it laughs at your misery.
>>399466
The demon's blade is faster, leaving a cut on your arm and forcing you back a step
>>399472
As you flail on the ground, one of the demons walks up to you, looks down at you for a while. laughs, then ties you up and begins jamming his blade under your plates, trying to pry them off.
You need help. Fast.
And it comes in the form of a well places arrow in the demon's back, making it fall over with a scream on top of you.
>>399473
The demon shrieks at you but your slash draws blood and forces it to withdraw a little.
>>399474
You kick the demon in the shin and smash it across it's big ugly face with your sword, splitting the entire face.
…wait. That's no demon! It's just a humen with a demon mask! …and really crazy eyes. And a foamy mouth.
>>399479
You kill the fallen demon bandit.

Bonnie and Kri are helpless

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

399507

>>399506
"They wore demon mask! Look out!"

399517

>>399495
As you open your mouth, a manacle latches onto your throat, and someone pulls you over backwards. You can hardly breathe.
>>399499
>>399506
>>399503
Kri is assisted back up
>>399504
And Dal joins >>399494 Tittyroy in blowing aside one of the demon bandits, who stumbles a little, then falls over.
>>399498
Your blow sends the demon bandit into a roll and leaves him laying on the ground. His demon mask also falls off, revealing he is actually a humen.
>>399497
There is a certain advantage to being waist height to most things. Your horns find a very effective resting place, leaving your assailant very much helpless.

The last bandit is trying to drag Copricarnius off

>>399500
>>399525
>>399522
>>399528
>>399536
Your combined assault leaves very little of the last bandit. And none of it is alive.
>>399529
You merrily beat the downed bandit to a pulp, giggling drunkenly at the blood and bits of bone.
Then a sharp pain shoots through you and you fall over. The old priest is behind you, looking rather disappointed.
"That is enough, child."

It seems you have fought off this bandit group.

399540

>>399537
I look horrified, check their bodies are they all dead, any clues on them?

Roll #1 7 = 7

399541

>>399537
I look at the dead bodies. What are they?

Roll #1 8 = 8

399544

>>399537
I scramble back to my feet
"Like he didn't deserve it!"

Roll #1 8 = 8

399545

>>399537
Examine the masks they were wearing. What's up with those?

399549

>>399540
>>399541
I wipe the blood from my sword.
"They are humens like us. Look" I pulled the demon masks aside and revealed their faces.

399551

>>399537
Rub a hand around my neck.
"Okay, what were they? Gotta write that in the story."

Roll #1 6 = 6

399555

>>399537
I wipe the dirt off of myself and rejoin the others.
Are the bodies still foaming at the mouth?

399559

>>399544
"One should not find joy in defiling the dead."
>>399541
>>399540
They are humen with demon masks.
Two are still alive, if heavily injured.
>>399555
Yes.
And their eyes seem wild and strange.

399563

>>399559
I make sure they don't have any weapons near them
"Someone heal these two and make them talk."

399567

>>399559
"Bah…"
Look around and see if there are any wounded villagers that need to be tended to.

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

I just look sad and try to heal one of the bandits. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

I will go sit on a rock somewhere, humming a relaxing tune.
Inspire.

"Well heroes, this is a night to remember!"

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8

399570

>>399559
>>399563
"If they can talk. Look at 'm. I swear, if I ever saw a capra in this state…"

399575

>>399570
I kick one of the corpses.
"We can make them talk."

399579

399586

>>399575
>>399570
I then relax on a corner.
"I'm not sure given their state."

I then toy with one of the masks.
"But this…. this must stop. We cant let this shit happen, I mean its the right thing to stop whoever is the mastermind of this. Right?"

399588

>>399568
He throws up some blood and his eyes roll back into his head.
He is dead.
>>399567
A few seem to have gotten beat up, yes.
>>399545
They seem to be hand-carved. Each one a little different from the other. They are all made of the same kind of wood though, and using the same kind of tools.
This could be a lead. Maybe you could show it to the locals?

399594

>>399588
Set to healing them then.

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12

399595

>>399588
I take one of the masks and start asking around to see if they mean anything to anyone.
[1d10]

Roll #1 10 = 10

399597

>>399588
"I find it hard to believe no one's ever caught any of these 'demons'. Should we show a mask to the locals?"
>>399586
"Of course, lass."

399599

>>399588
Pick one up and show it to the priest.

"These masks all seem to be made of the same material. Do you recognize it?"

399601

>>399588
I look helplessly at the priest. "He was a defiler of love, my power couldn't help.."

399607

>>399588
Poke one of them.
Is he really dead dead?

Roll #1 1 = 1

399621

>>399594
>>399595
After healing a couple of villagers they take a look at the mask
"Oh, what fine craftsmanship. This type of wood isn't common at all. Nor is it cheap. I should know, my family made a lot of money by cutting down these trees and selling them. There is a small forest of them near the top of the mountain."
>>399599
"Yes… this feels like an uncommon kind of wood. Very solid and durable, but easy to carve. Great for decoration. I remember one of the local families used to climb up the mountain years ago to cut down the trees up there to sell them."
>>399607
He explodes, drenching you in smelly gore.
I would think that yes, yes he is.

399625

>>399621
"That's a lead then."
I look at the party
"You folks doing alright?"

399628

>>399621
Hearing the explosion, I turn around.
"What the bloody heck are you doing?!"

399629

>>399621
"What happened to that family?"

399632

>>399621
"Interesting. Do they still do that?"

Then turn to look at the source of the explosion.

399634

>>399628
Shrug.
"Finding more stuff to write about!"
>>399621
Makes for a great facepaint.
Sing a song about it.

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3

399639

>>399625
"We'll survive… thank you for protecting us.
This was not a big raid… but it could have been just as devastating as the large ones."
"Let us only hope the Great Demon did not decide to focus on another town instead…"
>>399634
There is an exploded dick in your mouth and your nose is full of blood.
You can only cough and sputter.
>>399629
>>399632
One of the locals raises his hand "That was my family. We stopped because it was damn hard work and we already were rich enough. I grew up as a gardener, not a woodcutter so… I just kept to my gardens instead unlike my old man."

399643

>>399639
Was it at least a capra dick?
"I will need to wash that taste off…"

Roll #1 4 = 4

399644

>>399639
>>399634
"So you're one of those boys."

399647

>>399644
"Hey! Watch your tongue or the next time I talk about the mighty knight she might just happen to be a whore!"
Point my flute at her.

399648

>>399639
Where am I?

399650

>>399639
I stand up and fold my arms.
"So no one in the village notices that these are humens and not demons, seriously what are the guards doing?"

399651

>>399643
"…you might want to not tell that story."
Does my aeon mind appreciate this humor?

>>399639
"Who else knew about those forests?"

Roll #1 2 = 2

399652

>>399639
"Oh. Well, there goes my "family of woodcutters goes mad because of ancient evil magic" theory."

>>399643
"I believe we all need a wash after that. Where should find a place where we can clean ourselves."

>>399644
"My dear, if the dick had landed in your mouth would you become a slut?"

399653

>>399652
"Yeah, a bath, that sounds like a good idea.
And maybe some booze, that sounds great too."

399655

I roll my eyes at the ongoing conversation and go find a bucket of water to dip my head in.

399656

>>399643
It was an unwashed demon bandick.
>>399644
"I sell flowers. Ladies love flowers."
>>399648
Recovering from the fight.
It seems you have a lead now. The bandits had masks made from wood that grows near the mountaintop.
>>399650
"These are not all the demons… there were other kinds as well. Great slender ones. Huge brutish ones. And their lord is a horrible winged beast!"

399659

>>399656
Wait, I'm a great bard.
Do I know about Zhivur, Horks and Drakin?
'1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

399662

Can I connect those descriptions to any races I know of?
[1d10]

Roll #1 4 = 4

399663

>>399659
Nope, I'm a terrible bard.
Or I just like capras that much.

"So, how about a bath?"

399665

>>399656
Right

"Should we sleep again, or continue forward and follow to the origin to our attackers?"

399668

>>399663
"An excellent idea. Let's ask the innkeeper if he has any tubs."

399670

>>399659
>>399662
No.
Those are not native to these lands. No wonder poor-ass fruit farmers don't know of them either.
>>399663
>>399668
The barmaid pokes her head out the tavern door
"I can ready a bath for you. Come on in."

399674

>>399655
And rolling to see if that clears up my mind

Roll #1 8 = 8

399676

>>399647
I smile at him.
"Must be the beer still talking."
>>399652
I shrug.
"Who said anything about sluts?"
>>399665
"I'm fine with anything."

399678

>>399670
I follow her.

399679

>>399670
"Interesting…"

I'll go on inside.

399680

>>399670
Grin wide.
"Oh yeah! Tambelon will wait another day!"

399682

>>399676
"That doesn't help"
>>399670
follow the others into the tavern, but go to my room instead

399683

"shall we start after the bandits in the morning then?"

399685

>>399656
"Do you have any archives about these… demons? Are there any evidence?"

399686

>>399683
"Definitely.
But now bath!"

399688

>>399682
Hrumph.
Well, I go back into my room and into bed.

399690

>>399674
>>399655
Yep, that sobered you right up.
The old priest calmed down too.
>>399685
"Not really. They only began appearing a short while ago. At best we could describe them."
>>399686
The Barmaid prepares you a warm bath and leaves a few towels available.

399692

>>399690
Bah.
I'm going to rest a while longer and sleep this off.

399693

>>399690
I strip off my vest and leave it away from the tub by my daggers. After that I jump into the tub.
"Ahhhhhhh. Just right."

399698

>>399686
I smile "A bath sounds delightful." alright I'm going to go for a bit now

399701

>>399690
Examine the baths and towels. Did my robe make it through the fight okay?

Roll #1 4 = 4

399703

>>399690
Good! Jump in, let's see if we can have…
"Something to drink, would you sweetie?"

399705

"Tell me then."

399706

>>399701
It got a little dirty and tattered.
>>399693
>>399698
>>399703
Three capras, one tub. Oh my~
The barmaid looks back in
"Anything you need from me?"

399708

>>399690
>>399703
"Yes, something to drink for the heroes."

>>399706
I look around for the shampoo.

399709

>>399706
"I could use some help washing my…clothing."

399710

>>399706
"Of course sweetie."
Smirk at her.
"A big, large mug."
Sound a sweet tune.
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11

399712

>>399706
I get up and walk around. What's Kri doing?

399714

>>399709
"Hop in, friend. I'm sure they have a wash brush around her somewhere."

>>399710
I bob my head along with the music.
"You play beautifully. I have never heard anyone with such a skilled mouth."

399718

>>399714
Wave the flute around.
"It's all in how you blow on it!"
>>399709
"Come on in. I'm sure the water will take care of that!"

399719

>>399714
"But I don't have a body like you. My skin needs cleaning."

399722

>>399705
"Well, there were these guys…
And tall, slender things. They had the same kind of faces. Only theirs were on the back. And long, strange limbs.
Then there were huge ones! But we only ever saw a few. Or perhaps it was only one, and we mistook it for many. But it was still huge! Tore a house right down!
And then there is the Demon Lord… a flying, horrible thing that carried off some of our fairest ladies on dark, leathery wings."
>>399708
>>399710
"Drinks coming right up."
She leaves for a moment, then returns with some frothing mugs
"On the house. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to ask. We owe you big time."

399725

>>399722
… Is the priest around the temple or is he still in town?

399727

>>399722
Look at her. Then over at Tityroi. Then back at her with a flat expression.
"Nah, I'm good."
>>399719
"We can scrub ya if it's so important."

399734

>>399718
"I must say, you blow very well. How long have you been honing your skills?"

>>399719
"And? Hop in and we can scrub you. Keep your skin on."

>>399722
"If you could be a dear and point out the shampoo? the soap you humens like so much doesn't work to well on fur, and simply soaking won't get all this blood out."

399735

>>399722
Neh. I go and knock on Kri's door.

399738

>>399725
He went back to his temple.
He can be talked to there.
>>399734
>>399727
She tosses you a bottle of shampoo
"I'll just leave you to it then."

399739

>>399735
open my door
"Yes?"

399741

>>399727
>>399734
"I don't like being wet though…it makes me slow and heavy. You can wash it if I can borrow something else to shape myself until it is clean and mended."

399742

>>399738
Well I went back there too
"Father?"

399743

>>399722
I shudder imagining the sights of these monstrosities.

………
I then pointed my finger on one of them and give them the stare.
"If you are lying to me about this demon business and I find out that they are just guys in mask, I will personally go back in this quiet town and plant my fist to your face got it?"

399744

>>399739
"Whay do Myrmidons do for fun? I never see you socialize with the others."

399750

>>399741
"Can't you just use an armor to live in? No need to wash it that way."
>>399734
"Long enough. Is good to travel around a lot, you meet many valiant heroes who can teach you much about music, and the world!
You for istance, what's your story?"

399751

>>399744
"Myrmidons are just as social as any other race, I am not a prime example of this fact. I put my profession before the rest of my life."

walk back into my room but leave th door open

399752

>>399743
"Well they looked like demons!"
>>399742
"yes, child?"

399753

>>399750
"Armor takes much longer to fix though."

399755

>>399751
I peer into the room.
"What exactly is your profession? Are you a mercenary? We don't see many o' your kind around here."

399756

WE MAY SKIP TO DAWN AND CLIMB THAT MOUNTAIN WHEN EVERYONE FEELS READY

399758

>>399756
How many people do we have?
Ready.

399759

>>399752
I hang my head
"I came to apologize for my previous actions. I just don't know what overcame me."

399763

>>399738
"Thank you, miss. Sleep well."

>>399741
"I doubt my vest would be very good. Maybe you could use a pile of towels?"

>>399750
"I was born to foreign parents that settled in the local capra village. I grew up with a keen eye for fashionable clothing, valuable items, and well-to-do people. As a kid I found a teacher and, as it turns out, had a knack for a simple magic spell."
I charge my horns slightly and let them glow for a few seconds before letting the charge dissipate.
"That is all he taught me, though."

399765

>>399756
With that, I head to the tavern and sleep down stairs in a corner.

I'm here

399766

>>399755
"Yes. I am one of two specialists who deal in melee and ranged fighting. But this recent string of events has caused me to have a personal stake in the matter"

399769

>>399756
Sure, I'll just say it was mended and cleaned then.

399770

>>399759
"The lust of battle, most likely. The desire for revenge. The will to punish."

399772

>>399766
"Really? How so?"
I enter the room and sit down on a chair or the bed if there are no chairs.

399774

>>399753
"Doesn't it last more and break less, too?"
>>399763
"The misterious son of a long-lost lineage, whose keen mind allowed him to master the secrets of a dark and unfathomable magic, in search of his wayward teacher!"
Chuckle a bit.
"I can already hear the crowd cheering."

399779

>>399770
"Well… I still may have overdid it a smidge, no?"

399781

>>399756
I guess.

>>399774
"No, he still lives in town."
I pick up the bottle of shampoo.
"Saiduk seems unwilling to join us, so shall we scrub each other instead?"

399784

>>399772
"relative of mine, taken like the others in their village."

"What is your reason for joining this motley band?"

399786

>>399781
Shrug.
"Never gonna refuse some fresh shampoo. Wanna go first?"

399787

>>399779
"You did.
But so long as that violent lust does not overtake your mind, you will be no more evil for it."

399789

>>399787
"… Right. Thank you, father."

399792

>>399784
"I'm trying to prove my worth as a daughter of McLeod. My Grandfather lead my clan to victory against our rivals! He could defeat hundreds of enemies in battle. I couldn't stay home when I heard something like this was happening."

399796

>>399786
"Of course. Turn around."
I scrub you down, but stay away from anywhere too indecent.
"Your turn."

399798

>>399774
"It's sometimes harder to get around in."

399799

>>399789
"Was that all you needed of me?"

399801

>>399792
"…admirable."

399804

>>399799
"Yes. I'll rest now so I'm fit for tomorrow. Good night."
Go do just that.

399805

>>399798
"Ah, I see.
Want to take over my herb pounch?"
Laugh at that.
"It might make you feel a bit floaty…"

399807

>>399801
"It is, innit?"
I lean closer
"Truth be told, I just didn't want to stay home and do my father's and brother's dishes."
I wiggle my legs a bit.
"So who's your friend? I saw another Myrm outside when we were fighting."

399810

>>399805
"I don't think that would work…it wouldn't let me interact with things very well."

399811

>>399798
"If you want a wash you are going to need to hurry and make your decision."
I drain half my mug.
[1d10]

Roll #1 9 = 9

399812

>>399810
"I liked the tower of towels idea!"

399813

>>399807
"You do not have your own tower?

…Dal, she's the other specialist, better at range than I"

399815

>>399813
"I will build my tower! As soon as I get my own achievements. I really learned to fence when I was the practice target of my brothers."
I wiggle my tail.
"Is she your wife?"

399816

>>399810
>>399812
"We can carry you back to your room if you need us too, then you can take the blankket while e dry off."

399818

>>399815
"No, why?"

399821

>>399816
"I…suppose that would work. Thank you."

Do that, then.

399823

>>399818
"Could you do that thing with your armor plates again?"

399826

>>399821
I pull your cloths into the tub and start scrubbing them with soap and a brush.

>>399812
"Were you going to get my back?"

399834

>>399826
Sight.
"Fine, a back for a back."

Try to get that shampoo on him.
'1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

399835

"Happy?"

399836

Is it morning already?
Waking up how do I feel?
'1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

399838

>>399836
Yes, while the others play grabass, we can also do the morning.
Waking up after such a disturbing night feels rather odd.
>>399834
Hey now.
Getting a little feisty are we?

399840

>>399838
I would never!
But was that a nice butt?
'1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

399842

>>399840
I don't know. Try a better feel next time.

399844

>>399835
"Your mouth is HUGE!"
I also nod.

399845

>>399838
I stretch my legs and call for the waiter, servant, that guy who serves drink.
"Hey! Hey! I need food and something to drink."

399847

>>399834
>>399838
"Mmmmmm~I washed a bit more than your back. Thanks for returning the favor~"
10 face, 9 butt, 7 junk

399849

>>399845
The barmaid brings some varied breakfast stuffs.
"Slept well?"

399850

>>399844
give her a deadpan stare
"how observant of you, what is your purpose for being here aain?"

399852

>>399850
"I'm just…interested in you!"
Next morning?

399854

>>399847
Look baffled and pull back.
"No way. That's just wrong!"
Climb out of the tub.
"Totally wrong!"

399856

>>399852
next morning works

399857

>>399854
I blink.
"What is? I washed you, you washed me. I enjoyed it and up until now I thought you were enjoying it too."
I'm still ready, DM.

399858

>>399849
"I had better days, but tonight is not one of those" I drink the coffee and grab on whatever is edible and eat it.

"Say if some demon mask wearing freaks attacks you in the middle of the night, would you be able to sleep peacefully too?" I ask her while my mouth is full.

399859

>>399852
>>399856
"Remarking on the size of my mouth is nothing short of strange.."

399860

>>399859
"I'm sorry, it sort of slipped from me."

399861

>>399857
"No. That was. Not. What I meant to do. And we shall never talk about it again!"

Grab a towel and rush off to the floor above, in my room.

399862

>>399858
I'll just skip ahead to the morning.

"I wonder if the mental state of those bandits was linked to the masks."

399864

Keep RPing if you wish, but the plot moves along as well.
IT IS EARLY AS DICK NEXT MORNING
YOU ARE OUT OF BED
THE SUN WILL BEGIN TO RISE SOON

You should head up the mountain path and into the woods.
The old priest and flower merchant give you a few final pointers
"There are another two old shrines up the mountain, but they were long since abandoned. One is about halfway up. The other is at the summit."
"My father told me there was also a small logging camp somewhere up there where he and his workers used to rest when cutting the trees. Not that anyone uses it any more, but it might provide a good resting spot."

399867

>>399864
"Do you think they're coming from the summit rather than from inside the mountain? There aren't any caves?"

399868

>>399864
We told you a dozen times that we were ready!
Good morning tune.
'1d10+2'
"Good morning mighty heroes!"

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

399869

>>399861
"I'm sorry, I thought yo-"
I sadly finish my bath and washing the Aeon's clothing.

>>399862
"Here is your skin, Saiduk."
I set your cloths down next to you.

>>399864
"Thank you for the advice."

399870

>>399867
"There may well be caves. I've never been up there myself. As I said, I grew up in a garden."

399871

>>399862
I take a bite of the food."I dont know really, I am not a magic expert if you ask me."

"Hey come join me and eat." I welcome her.

399872

>>399860
"Right

Since you asked, who are you 'seeing' as those of your race often do?"

399875

>>399864
Find a path up and stick with it

399876

>>399872
I blush.
"I don't have a mate."
>>399870
"Well, let's move then!"
I take the lead, up the mountain.

399878

>>399869
Back inside.

>>399876
>>399875
And up we go.

399880

>>399864
>>399871
Dont mind this part then. Follow the party up the mountain after eating.

399881

>>399870
Up I go, with the others.

"Please, whats up with that song?!" I cover my ears.

399886

>>399876
"Heh, I doubt it. Excuse the affront, your kind normally teems with sexual release doesn't it?"

>>399882
"Such a strange tune, almost Myrdian if I guessed"

399887

>>399885
Shrug.
"It's a bit sad, I will give you that.
Always a shame when the hero dies by the hand of a dozen bloodthirsty crows."

399888

As you climb up the mountainside, you notice a mist sticks around for quite a while here. Staying low will allow you to remain hidden from sight.
Ahead, you can see the first old shrine

399889

>>399888
"I will go ahead to make sure it is safe."
I Stealthily move towards the shrine.

Mossy.
Messy.
…and someone left bones and blood all over it.
>>399894
You slash out and split the incoming trap arrow in two.
>>399892
You on the other hand take the arrow right in your side.

399900

"Are you okay heroes?"

"Is it true by the way? That Myrmid tongues are as long as your arms?"

399911

>>399901
It's just an arrow, stop being such a baby about it.
>>399902
Your shout echoes through the mountainside, but there is no answer.
>>399905
You can see some shadows among the mist. They have not seen you, but they have heard the singing and shouting.

399915

>>399911
Now that I am hidden, try to find and backstab whoever shot me.

Roll #1 6 = 6

399925

"It's a personal matter. Now answer me"

399926

You locate your foul foe.
A crossbow tied to a tripwire.
>>399916
Humen.
From several individuals.
Dumped here on purpose.
>>399918
You charge into the mist and leap out at a shadow.
After you fail to feel the impact or indeed your hooves touching the ground again, you open your eyes and realize a masked bandit grabbed you by the arms in mid-leap and is holding you in the air at face level
"Well well, what have we here?"
>>399919
That's more spooky than inspiring.

You are bolstered

There are several shadows moving around in the mist.
…sentries?
>>399938

Kri manages to catch the bandit off-guard, making him drop Bonnie, who swiftly decapitates him with her sword.
The other shadows did not hear anything.

Magic Bolt those guys. How dare they interrupt my study!

Roll #1 5 + 3 = 8

399976

>>399958
The good news is at least it missed any of your juicy parts.
The bad news is it's now lodged in your belly.
>>399960
>>399964
You sneak up behind another bandit and hop on his back, then stab him in the neck, bringing him low in an instant.
>>399961
Well so much for subtlety.
Heroism is active. The remaining six bandits charge.
>>399965
And as they do, Dal unleashes a volley upon them, cutting one down with ease and wounding another.
Kri then charger forth and steps on a tripwire which sends a bolt right between his hip and thigh plate, causing him to fall over, helpless.
>>399972
Your magic bolt nearly finishes off the wounded bandit

Four unharmed bandits remain
One heavily wounded bandit remains

Kri is helpless
Bonnie is helpless

"I think I'm bleeding…"

>>399978
A crossbow bolt
Thanks to Heroism, you do get up.
>>399980
At a less heroic time, you wld have gotten spotted. But for now, you are well and safe, stabbing another bandit and wounding him heavily.
>>399984
As you stand up, the marksman shot kills the wounded bandit
>>399987
Your shot hits him in the eye, wounding him
>>399988
You heal up the buxom goat and she's good to go again
>>399991
And you smash aside one more bandit, wounding it
>>399982
You dive into the mist to hide

Four wounded bandits remain
Heroism is still on for one turn

Roll #1 9 = 9

400012

>>400000
You quietly kill him in the cover of a misty shroud
>>400002
Your stone smacks him in the face but he survives.
>>400007
>>400006
However this combined assault kills him with ease.
>>400003
You leap onto another bandit and slash his throat, killing him
>>400005
>>400008
And you push one of the bandits to the ground, smothering him with your tits to keep him down and quiet.
>>400009
And finally Althea knocks out the last bandit.

So much for that then.
Two bandits are alive but pacified.
The rest are dead.

400015

>>400012
I wipe the blood from my sword.
"Well that takes care of them, so who have we captured?" I look at the party.

400017

>>400012
Pick up that bandit and Mind Read the fucker. What were they doing here?

Roll #1 5 = 5

Inspire.

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

>>400015
"Hopefully the ones responsible for this."
Hold up the bone.

400024

>>400012
"Wh' hz roap? Ty d'em up"

400025

>>400021
I gritted my teeth looking at the bones.
"Uegghh… "

400026

>>400017
Seems like they are capturing slaves

400028

>>400012
I wipe my knife off on him and rejoin the party.
"Is everyone still alive?"

400029

>>400026
And those… bones we saw?
"Slavers…"

Roll #1 4 = 4

400031

>>400028
"Oh, and if one of you could take care of this arrow that would be grand."
I point at the arrow in my side.

400033

>>400028
I raise my hand.

"Everyone seems to be fine, but there are some wounded like Tityroi."

400036

>>400031
"Don't be a big baby! Just pull that!"

400039

>>400029
His mind is too full of capra tits to find useful answers about bones.

400045

>>400036
"It's in my lung. I'd ask you to dress the wound after a healer has taken it out, but washing things seems to upset you."

400051

>>400045
Give him a flat stare and pull out my water flask.
And a few 'herbs' from my bag.
"Chew on these. And we will need a proper healer."

400056

>>400051
I take them and chew on them.
"Thank you."

400057

>>400039
I grumble
"Bah."

>>400045
"Oh stop crying, you. Let me take a look."
Fix him up.

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

400058

>>400057
Well it ain't pretty or painless, but it'll have to do.

As she heals him, I pull out the arrow.
'1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

400063

>>400061
And then quickly patch him up with some bandages.

"There you go."

400065

>>400058
I look around and up to the temple what does it look like, is it safe to approach?

With that I walk slowly and stealthily to see whats ahead.
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

400068

>>400065
Some way up the mountain you can see the silhouettes of the logging camp the flower merchant talked about.

400072

>>400058
"Oh, is that what your insides look like?"

400074

>>400057
I grit my teeth on the herbs.

>>400061
>>400063
"Thank you, Copricarnius. That wasn't so terrible, was it?"

No half-assed work. Clean it properly.

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3

400076

Off I go.

>>400075
Pls no.
I already fixed that with a 10!

400081

>>400075
Trying to pry the armour further apart DOES NOT HELP

400084

>>400068
I slowly get near it and see if those silhoutes are something that I can confirm as alive or dead

'1d10+2'

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

400085

>>400058
I scratch my head
"I don't know why I thought that was a good idea…"
Let's just… undo that fuckup then, get rid of the pain.

Roll #1 9 + 1 = 10

400086

>>400075
"What are you doing?"

>>400076
"As I recall you were the one with the slippery hooves."

400101

>>400084
A few sentries are lazily keeping an eye on things.
Several other bandits are fast asleep around the area. There is a strong smell of alcohol in the air.

Due to a bunch of people going to bed, shall we pause?

400103

>>400101
Yeah, sure. We seem to be losing focus a bit.

Good session.

400104

400106

>>400101
Slowly walk past them and see if I can locate the source of the alcohol smell.
'1d10+2'

Perhaps a few more rolls for me.

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12

400109

>>400106
No doubt about it. They were all drinking heavily last night. There are signs of feasting as well.
This must be why they never attack at dawn. They are hung over.

400119

>>400109
Hmmmm….. well thats easy.
Walk past them slowly, are they keeping prisoners here? What are they eating? I also checked as to what kind of 'feasting' that they are doing around these parts.
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

400125

>>400119
There seem to be some cages, but they are almost entirely empty.
The food remains imply they hunted some local wildlife to eat.
You can also spot some cave entrances and a path leading up to the summit shrine

NEXT TIME ON HUMENQUEST

400128

>>400125
No….
Can I continue or officially paused?

400141

>>400128
I can press on for a little while more.

400145

>>400141
I crawl slowly past them, I check the cages if there are evidence that it is used to cage humens and I also try to peek inside the caves. What do I see?
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8

400146

>>400145
There is a chained villager girl in one of the cages. She is asleep.
Inside the caves you can see shadows on the wall from torches inside, and can determine there are many more cages down there.

400147

>>400146
I breath slowly, this is a gamble lily…

Can I see any locks on the cage? Can I unlock it?
'1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

400149

>>400147
You can, but doing so without alerting anyone is MIN6

Slowly step inside the cave and explore a little bit more.
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

400159

>>400152
There are many bandits down here. Some asleep, may more awake.
There are also large pens and cages for holding prisoners.

400162

>>400159
This is a labyrinth. makes me wonder if we can take them all, I frown.

….
Alright alright, time to get out.
Crawl slowly and get out of this cave. Perhaps I might scout the altar but what do I see from this position from the outside, are there sillhoutes in the distance in the altar?
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12

400165

>>400162
The shrine seems to be guarded by not one but two huge figures.

400167

>>400165
Okay, not going there.
Go back to the party and slowly make my way down. I 'll report to them what I find out.

Frown while hanging down from… Something.
"Quiet heroes are coward heroes, not really worth singing about."

405405

>>405399
>>405400
>>405398
Go back to my team-mates and report to them.
"So hey, when you guys are relaxing down here, I've gone up the temple and do some scouting. Guess what I found out, all of them cultist are passed out because of some sort of party."

I then sit down and relax.
"There are some caves with prisoners up there too and the altar is guarded by two large figures that I cannot identify."

405406

>>405405
"Altar? What's going on? I think I passed out."

405407

>>405401
You had heard tales of there being demons on this mountain. It's hard to see anything in the thick mist, but you can make out a group of what doesn't really look like demons up the hill.
You may go up to them if you wish.
>>405400
Climbing a nearby tree, you spot a large figure down the hill, walking around.

The demons may have an interesting artifact. I'd like to bring it back to our sky-circles and have it studied and added to our collection.

A.. Capra voice?

Move a bit closer, hold my poleaxe ready.

405416

>>405406
"What we do now is to save the asses of those humens up there, and right now. Who knows they may get eaten by those demon-masked wearers!"

>>405413
"Whoa there are we not fighting those bandits, they are just passed out! That will be easy right?"

405417

>>405409
Your top-heavy shape makes you fall over, and the bell around your neck makes quite a bit of noise as your tits smack it around while you tumble.
>>405415
Soon, a naked capra comes rolling down the hill, her bell making a lot of noise.

Bonnie seems to have the big thing distracted with her antics.
Whatever that thing is, it sure is huge…

>>405429
"Whaaaaat? I'm sharing so much great music with all of you!"

405436

>>405459

"Hm.
You're kinda cute, actually. For a goat-thing.
What's your name?"
He loosens his grip and speaks in a friendly tone. You can see his eyes are rather clearly not on your face.

Wait I am kicking in the air or something.
"Oh! My.. sincerest apologies." Stand up, a bit embarrased from all of my shenanigans.

"I will tell my name if you tell me yours first." I offer my hand.

Immediately make myself comfortable.

"Why call them calves?"

"Oh my fault, noble wanderer. I was not here."

Look around.

"Aren't we missing somecapra?"

Are we back on our "camp" yet?
Do we notice Red being gone?

405524

>>405502
What is going on?

405526

>>405508
Well technically it's early as shit in the morning.
You arrive to the mountaintop lumber camp. Several masked and unmasked bandits are sleeping around the benches, sheds and near campfires.
>>405513
"Hm, well, I guess my latest batch of moonshine was a little undercooked. Good thing I don't like the stuff myself."
His grip becomes more demanding
"Now now. Don't run off. You don't want me to call for the sentries or anything, do you?
Tell you what… you make this worth my while and I'll let you run along. You seem nice enough."
he puts his other hand on your hip
>>405516
You can't think of a good melody, and end up just muttering words that rhyme with find.

405527

>>405508
"why not children, pebbles or seedlings? What's in a name really, what matters is the feeling you have for them"

405528

>>405524
The others found a female Hork, and are headed to the lumber camp.

405530

>>405526
Oh my. Look at this.
So many many potential verses…
Turn to the others.
"Should we wake them up?"

405531

>>405530
"I say we kill them and leave a few alive to answer questions."

405532

>>405528
Damn capras

continue to the camp, and try to not make much sound '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

405534

>>405530
I shake my head at that.

405535

>>405532
Screaming "WAIT FOR ME GUISE" is not exactly the most silent approach.
Party, roll to dodge.
Lowest roll is the one he blindly slams into.

405536

>>405526
Oh I thought it was the party's camp, ignore my last post

Keep still and see what the party does.

405537

>>405535
'1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

405538

>>405531
>>405534
"Okaaaay…"
>>405535
Capras always land on their hooves.
'1d10+1'

Roll #1 6 + 1 = 7

405539

>>405526
Stand stiff for a moment and shiver.
"W.. what do you want from me?"

405540

>>405535
[1d10]

Roll #1 6 = 6

405541

>>405540
Should be seven.

405542

>>405539
"I don't think that's too hard for you to figure out. Now are you going to make trouble?"

405543

>>405535
Capras…

Roll #1 7 = 7

405544

>>405543
That's a Myrmid.

405545

>>405535
'1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

405546

>>405542
I whimper.
Look around, where am I and can I escape without a fuzz or the guards waking up if I kick him in the balls.
'1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5

405548

>>405544
It's hard to see

405550

>>405546
Could go either way.
"Heh… I like it when you sound like that."
He grabs you firmly by the chest and lifts you in the air a bit
"Nice and soft, aren't you…"
>>405545
INCOMING
A myrmid crotch plate slams into your face, and moments later the whole bony thing falls on top of you.
Welcome back to the party, Kri.

405552

>>405550
I seriously hope we didn't wake up anyone…
"I'm not gonna write about this.."

405554

>>405550
"I had no idea you felt that strongly about me, Kri!"
Try to get up
'1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

405565

>>405550
"You capras need to be taller"
get up '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

405567

>>405550
I just slack from his grasp and look away.
"Please just let me go…. "

405568

>>405552
>>405554
>>405565
"Are we going to kill these cultists or stand around talking?"

405569

>>405565
"I quite like my size, thank you! Now, where is that last capra?"

405572

>>405568
"We could just sneak past them.
Killing someone in his sleep doesn't make for a great song."

405574

>>405568
>>405572
"Let's try to speak past them"

405576

>>405572
"Would you rather be stabbed in the back after they wake up?"

405578

>>405576
"Like they could catch any one of us."
Smirk at him.

405579

>>405552
>>405568
>>405572
"If we want to preserve them, the least we should do is strip them of arms."

How many enemies?

405581

>>405567
"I don't want to hurt you, Red. I'm just lonely…"
Rolling to have a heart
'1d10'
>>405579
Nearby, a group of '1d5' are sleeping.
The whole camp is quite large though. Probably dozens of bandits. A major alert might prove dangerous.

Roll #1 8 = 8 / Roll #2 1 = 1

405583

>>405581
>>405567
He loosens his grip and instead brings you in for a hug
"Sorry if I scared you."

405585

>>405581
I look around at all the bandits.
"Maybe we should free the hostages first after all."

405586

>>405579
>>405578
"I say we slay them all! A true test of our meddle!"

405591

>>405585
>>405586
"No. Hostage rescue comes first, and we must be hasty in dealing with whatever bandits there are here to get to them."

1/5 are sleeping?

405592

>>405586
"I say we let them sleep over their hangovers and bad sex."
>>405581
Right.
Tiptoe around him and check the rest of the camp.
'1d10+1'

Roll #1 4 + 1 = 5

405593

>>405581
>>405583
I smiled inside.
"W… would you let me go?" I ask nervously.

405595

>>405591
"Fine."
I try to walk up to the prisoners without waking anyone up.
'1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

405598

>>405591
"Come on, Nati. Step lightly."
I scramble around again so that I am sitting on your shoulder.

405600

>>405598
"Fine. Less feet on the ground…"

Carefully get to the hostages, if I can see them. Can I see them?

405602

>>405591
There is just one guy here.
He is alone.
>>405592
It smells of cool food and cheap moonshine in here. You can find at least
'1d20+10' bandits asleep around the camp
>>405593
"I guess you wouldn't want to so anything for me in exchange would you?"
>>405595
>>405600
There is a cage outside, with a pair of humens in it.
The caves where the other prisoners are seem to be better guarded.

Roll #1 19 + 10 = 29

405606

>>405602
Be. I. Damned.
Eyes wide, wave around my arms franctically to the others, opening and closing my ten fingers 3 times in a row.

Look if anyone is awake from here.
'1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

405608

>>405602
I approach the cage. Are they awake?

405609

>>405602
I stealth my way off her back and over to the humen cage.
"Stay quiet, we are getting you two out."
[1d10]

Roll #1 4 = 4

405613

>>405606
My eyes widen, and I stay back. I try to motion for you to come back

405615

>>405606
Nope.
They are all sound asleep out here. A half-empty jug of moonshine nearby speaks volumes as to why. It smells yeasty and terrible.
>>405608
They seem to be sleeping uncomfortably, leaning on the bars
>>405609
They didn't hear you…

405617

>>405613
Okay…
Let's do this slowly though.
"We are missing the other capra! The girl, Lily!"

405620

>>405615
I grab one by the mouth so they don't scream and wake 'em up.

405621

>>405602
"Exchange? I got nothing on me… except my clothes and weapon that is."
I look down.
"I was scouting here to investigate the disappearance of the local villagers nearby, I ended up here and… you suddenly appaer." I shrink back.

405622

>>405617
I follow you, cautiously..
"Alright"

405623

>>405615
"PSSST! HEY!"

405627

>>405622
"No time for this. Let's get the hostages out. And… You go, do some heroic stuff!"

405631

>>405620
He looks at you, first scared, then confused, then blushing.
>>405623
The other one blinks a few times
"Bwa… huh?"
>>405621
"Well… maybe you could let me see what you're hiding under the clothes~
…wait what did you-?"
Think fast before he processes what you just admitted.

405633

>>405615
Keeping arms at the ready, look at the cages. Any prisoners awake?

405635

>>405631
".. wha? OH!"
Kick him in the head!!
'1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

405636

>>405631
Take a look around the whole camp from the outside to see if that missing capra is here.

Roll #1 5 = 5

405637

>>405631
"What'samatter? Never seen a naked lass before? We're here ta git ya out. Now don't scream!"
I let him go.
"How many of you are there?"

405638

>>405627
"Nothing heroic about cutting down sleeping men." I look for the prisoners. '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

405639

>>405631
"Shh, we are getting you out of here."
I try to pick the cage's lock.
[1d10]

Roll #1 2 = 2

405643

>>405635
You knock him over
Rolling to remain conscious
'1d10-1'
>>405636
Well there's some sort of scuffle going on on the other edge of the camp
>>405637
"Nice tits… lass.
Well there's us here and I don't even know. I was brought up here a few nights back. I think most are kept in those caves, guarded by those really freaky demons…"
>>405638
>>405633
Aside from this pair, only one other cage out here has prisoners.
'1d5' to be exact.
>>405639
This lock is crude but surprisingly stubborn.
Also the hinges are rusty as hell. They'd probably make a lot of noise.

Roll #1 2 - 1 = 1 / Roll #2 2 = 2

405645

>>405643
>>405635
Nope, he is well and truly out cold.
So much for that then.

405647

>>405643
Signal to them to be quiet and see if I can open the cages.

How big are the cages anyway?

405649

>>405643
I keep trying.
"Does anyone have any oil?"
[1d10]

Roll #1 1 = 1

405650

>>405643
Reach said edge of the camp.
Gracefully.

Roll #1 1 + 1 = 2

405652

>>405643
"I need a bigger sword… do you know who has the keys?"

405658

>>405650
With all the grace of someone tripping over a sleeping bandit.
"bwhuha!?
What the? Why the fuck are you?"
>>405649
You snap your lock pick. Curse this rusty piece of shit. Any decent lock would have opened easily!
>>405652
"Probably the leader of the demons. The Winged Beast."

405663

>>405645
>>405643
Breath out of relief, that was so close. Too close on both occasions. Good thing, he has a weak head.
Alright crawl and stealth in the camp and see if I can go back to my teammates
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

405664

>>405658
"I still think we shoulda just charged in and killed 'm all… who's the beast? Where does it reside? Inside?"

405665

>>405658
"You are still dreaming boy!"
Cheap shot.

405667

>>405658
"What is holding us back from completing our mission here?"

405668

>>405658
I toss the broken pick aside and try to hide when I hear a bandit wake up.
[1d10]

Roll #1 2 = 2

405671

>>405663
>>405668
You end up vashing your heads together as you both scramble into the same hiding place
>>405665
With a firm punch to the face, he is back in calm slumber.

405673

>>405643
check the bandits, does anyone look like they have keys '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

405674

>>405671
Time to finally reach this other end of the camp, right?

405677

>>405668
>>405671
"Ow. Why… hey you!" Where are the others?" I look at her

405678

>>405671
"Fine. Just wait a moment."
Where are the others? Are we still together?
If not, I'll just find Kri.
"Come on, let's go inside the cave!"

405679

>>405647
>>405647
>>405647
Well, how big are the cages?

405683

>>405677
"Sorry."

>>405671
I try again.

405684

>>405683
[1d10]

Roll #1 4 = 4

405686

>>405678
"And leave ourselves unguarded when all the sleeping here wake up? I would tie them all if I had rope."

405689

>>405679
You could probably carry them one at a time.
>>405674
At the other end, you find a knocked out bandit with a bulge in his pants and cooking utensils on his person.
Also, a staircase to the summit.
>>405673
The prisoners mentioned the Demon Leader.

405690

>>405683
"Hey wait!" follower her.
'1d10+2'

"Where are the others? Whats happening?"

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

405692

>>405689
Uh, I love high places.
Climb it and take a look at the whole camp.
'1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

405693

>>405686
I frown and walk further away from the camp, toward the mountain/cave.

405694

>>405690
>him
"We're moving to the cave."

>>405689
I go to the cave.

405695

>>405692
There's about 30 bandits asleep down there, and two massive things up in the summit guarding the shrine.
>>405694
>>405693
Torches light the inside, painting heavy shadows on the walls.
You can hear movement down there. Seems the guards here aren't asleep.

405697

>>405686
"We could..:"
Stomp my hoof.
>>405695
Follow them.
"I'm so lost…"

405698

>>405695
Two massive things?
Can I identify them?
'1d10'
Rejoin the others after this.

Roll #1 2 = 2

405699

>>405695
Stealth.
RNG please stop fucking me.
[1d10]

Roll #1 7 = 7

405700

>>405689
Okay then. But for now, follow the party.

405702

>>405694
>>405699
Follow him to the cave, this is the same cave of the bandits where the prisoners are held right?
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3

405706

>>405698
They both turn to face you.
Roll not to panic
>>405702
It is.
You can go take a closer look, now that you slipped on moss at the entrance and rolled down into the cave.
MIN6 to not get seen instantly.
>>405699
You keep to the deep shadows by the wall and creep along silently, sighing as Lily rolls past you.

405708

>>405695
Wait for them to arrive. "We've going to have company soon" I whisper to the ones who are near me.

405710

>>405706
'1d10'
Maybe a capra pissing himself will make for a good comic relief story?

Roll #1 1 = 1

405713

>>405706
"wha Wha!"
'1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

405714

>>405706
I get my sword ready.
"Just tell me when to charge!"

405721

>>405706
>>405714
"Draw arms!"

Ready myself.

405727

>>405706
I move around so that I will be in a good position to strike at the two figures.

405729

>>405710
History will be the judge of that.
A terrified stream of piss soaks your legs and prompts the two figures to begin moving towards you.
>>405713
You slam into one of the guards down in the cave. He grabs you by the leg and lifts you up, upside down
"What the hell!? Intruder!"
There are '1d5+5' guys down here.
Half of them are clearly humen. The other half are strange, spindly dark things with white markings on their bodies.
>>405727
They are headed for the shivering, screaming Copricarnius

Roll #1 2 + 5 = 7

405733

>>405729
I magic bolt one of them from my hidden position.

Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11

405734

"ENOUGH!"
Slam at the nearest figure!
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

405735

>>405729

Cheap shot one of them with my sling!

Heroic Fortitude!

405750

>>405733
>>405735
Those shots should have brought low anything!
…but both of the huge figures remain standing. Could these be… real demons?
They roar and charge at you.
Roll to dodge.
>>405734
>>405742
Your dual attack knocks down one of the cave guards.
The others draw weapons and attack you.

>Shrine

Two Giant Guards remain
>Cave
Six Bandits remain

405754

>>405750
Shadowcasting means I should still be hidden after that.
I backstab one of them.

Roll #1 2 = 2

405756

Dodging? I'm sliding the fuck down from this tower!

Roll #1 7 + 1 = 8

Okay just calm down, you are trained for this."
Be quick and fast, dodge their attacks and strike at one of the guards.

405774

>>405770
I was Rolling perception to see a weak point.

Roll #1 6 = 6

405783

>>405756
You leave a long wet trail as you high-tail it off the mountain.
>>405754
However your attempt to stab an angry boulder is met with nearly being crushed to death.
Winded and in pain, you realize your cover is blown, and that two massive demon-masked things are staring you down.
>>405770
>>405774
You are in the cave with the others then.
It seems the weird looking demons are no sturdier than normal humens.
>>405767
Silently, Dal line sup her crossbow, and shoots five of the six bandits, killing '1d5'
>>405766
Your sword cleaves right through the leg of one of the bandits leaving him screaming and holding his stumps
>>405763
>>405759
You duck under an incoming counter
>>405760
And you smack a bandit with your meaty fist

"these are mere humen," I point my blade at the two remaining bandits "Humens, lay down your arms, surrender to us so we can spare your lives."

Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11

405807

>>405788
You grab the screaming bandit and use him to bludgeon his nearest ally
>>405789
Tityroi is the only one within earshot, unless you wanted to wake up the entire camp.
>>405796
You calmly dust off turn around and run off, screaming nope nope nope nope nope
>>405793
Dal turns to you and opens her face plate a little
"Kri… I've been meaning to tell you… I-"
She is silenced immediately by a thundering blow to her exposed face, which visibly cracks her head plate and sends her to the floor, unconscious.
Angered, you stab the bandit Natidah smashes, bringing him to his knees.
>>405795
Your sword cleaves the last of the bandits wide open, causing her to collapse.
>>405798
Sadly, nobody is really left in surrendering condition.
Three are still alive though, if barely. They are simply missing various parts.
>>405797
And as your friends mop up, you hide under a table.

The cave is now clear.
Both capra have escaped from the shrine.

405811

>>405807
"Think that might have been a bit much?"
I clean my sword.

405812

>>405807
Ops.
So how far are the others?
>>405796
"What were those things?"

405813

>>405807

"Uh, Kri…I forgot to ask. Is she your girlfriend?"

405822

>>405812
In the cave, the entrance of which was at the other part of the camp.
>>405813
The prisoners look terrified.
Also your rage is not really helping her.
>>405818
You dive into some bushes and hide.
The big demons return to the shrine and enter it.
>>405816
You make the bleeding stop on
1 the legless one
2 the stabbed one

Peek out of my table, has the dust cleared? :Look around if the cages has any prisoners in it.
'1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

405826

>>405822
Damn that was freaky.
Run over there and warn them.

405831

>>405825
There are many prisoners in there. Probably half a damn town.

405833

>>405831
Go to one of the cells.
"Hey there, how did you guys got caught in this mess?"

Look if there is a way to unlock the cages.
'1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

405834

>>405822
"Kri, I've never really healed a Myrid, but if your love for her is strong then I should be able to do something for her." Heal Dal.

Roll #1 9 = 9

405837

>>405822
I follow behind Copricarnius, but stay hidden.

405838

>>405833
They aren't locked. Just barred shut.
>>405826
You silently make it to the cave and HOLY SHIT WHAT HAPPENED DOWN HERE OH GOD THERE'S BLOOD EVERYWHERE
>>405834
Her messed up face pops back into a reasonable shape and she shakes off her dizzyness, then skitters away to hide like she always does.

405839

>>405834
I lean on my greatsword at hearing that.
>>405838
"Right. What now?"

405840

>>405838
Wince.
"What the hell heroes!
This is a mess! And you weren't even there to fight the real monsters!"

405843

>>405838
Open the door then.
'1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

405844

>>405838
alright, now.. take away the bandit's weapons.

405846

>>405843
You open the door and the townsfolk step out
"So… c-can we go now? Is it safe?"
>>405844
From the cave or from the camp?

405848

Alright
Could someone give me a recap of what's happening
I'm totally out of it.
We are in the hostage cave right?

"What about the shrine?"

405852

>>405846
the ones in the cave, since taking away thirty bandits weapons would take all night.

405853

>>405846
I raise a hand to halt them.
"Its not safe yet, I am not sure."

I look around.
"I will scout first and tell you guys if it is safe to go outside."

Scout and see if there are cultist roaming about.
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

405855

>>405822
spit on what's left of him, then loot the bandits '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

405860

>>405848
You are in the cave
The bandits here are dead, save for one who has no legs.
The hostages are free.
>>405852
>>405855
The cave has a cache of standard weapons, some moonshine, gold, a few stolen items and various articles of clothing as well as some papers.
>>405853
The fighting woke up '1d4-1' bandits

Roll #1 2 - 1 = 1

405861

>>405860
>>405853
One guy is milling about, wondering what the noise was

405863

>>405860
I start pocketing as much of the gold as I can carry.
[1d10]

Roll #1 4 = 4

405865

>>405860
Slam him to the ground
Silently
'1d10+2'

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

405867

>>405860
Take another spear and a sword, the gold, and look at the papers '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

405869

>>405860
Knock that bandit out silently.
Backstab from stealth.
'1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

405870

>>405860
"Bah, vulgar gold."
Pocket some.
'1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

405876

>>405865
>>405869
watch in horror as the bandit is killed

405877

>>405876
I was trying not to kill him!

405879

>>405863
There isn't all that much here, a few coin purses worth.
>>405865
He has no time to scream before he is brought low by a leaping set of goat tits slamming into him.
I doubt he could have thought of a better way to get back to sleep.
>>405869
And after Bonnie is done subduing him, you kill him in cold blood.
There is now a bloody mess right there out in the open when anyone else wakes up.
>>405867
>>405870
I guess you all get to fight over the gold then.

The papers read
[No further workers are needed after this shipment. Focus on supplies.
The Tide will provide all we need in manpower
The Flame will join the Good Lord on his journey
I will remain to oversee the project for now. Return to me when you are done.]

405880

>>405876
Is said horror evident?
'1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

405881

>>405876
>>405880
Enough.
Put a hand on his shoulder and slowly shake my head.
"Such a shame, the loss of a life."

405884

>>405879
"We still need to kill those things at the shrine."

405887

>>405879
I go back to the prisoners.
"Its alright to go out, I think its safe. Everyone get out orderly and we will be able to bring you all home."

405890

>>405881
"He was legless.. not a threat anymore.." I look into your eyes "Don't you think that he had some love of his own that he was chasing? No that love will die with him, and so needlessly.."

405893

>>405879
are there any bandit prisoners we have with us?

405894

>>405893
pretty sure the ones we were fighting are all dead

405896

>>405893
"We should head to the shrine now."
I get my sword and start making my way up there.

405897

>>405894
a damn shame
"If the townspeople are free, we should lead them to town."

405898

>>405890
"Shh. It's a bad, bad world out there. Eat or be eated.
But this doesn't mean we have to be taken down with it and bend to its rules, does it?
You are still a hero, no?"
'1d10+2' to play a soft, malenchonic tune.

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

405899

>>405887
"A-alright… ok everyone, let's go…"
They silently sneak out of the camp and head down the mountainside.
>>405893
I think you've murdered all of them.

The prisoners are free.
They will find their own way back.
Only the four in the cages outside remain in captivity.

405903

>>405897
"Let's finish our business here, first."
>>405899
To the summit/shrine/horks/whatever!

405905

>>405896
"Hold on"
>>405899
nod as they leave, then follow Bonnie

405906

>>405899
To the outside, we should free those, too.

405908

>>405899
Go outside and into the cages.
"Hey are you guys alright, time to get out."

Check out if therere is away to unlock the door and open it.
'1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

405909

>>405906
The cages are locked.

405911

>>405909
Shoots.
By what kind of lock?

405914

>>405899
I follow Bonnie.

405915

405916

>>405898
I smile "I can't stay sad, when I hear such lovely music, and by our own Corpy." I give you a hug and maybe just the slightest pinch on the cute little butt

405922

>>405908
>>405915
>>405911
The cages are also quite rusty.
With the right use of force and leverage, the bars can be snapped.
>>405914
>>405903
It seems the two Horks are no longer on the shrine door…

405923

>>405922
I look around a bit. Is the shrine open?

405925

>>405922
Go and grab one of the weapons(a spear is appropriate) that the bandits have and use it as a crowbar and force to open the cage
'1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

405928

>>405916
Awkward.
I will clear my throat slightly.
"Ah. Yes. Thank you, but I do it just for you heroes, my glory matters little!"

'1d10' not to be too happy about that pinch.

>>405925
"That's gonna make a great song! Lily the barbuster!"

Roll #1 9 = 9

405929

>>405928
Cool. As. Fuck.

405931

>>405922
I push open the door.

405932

>>405928
I just roll my eyes.

But yeah I got to admit he is a good musician.

405936

>>405925
That works.
The bar snaps without so much as a sound, allowing the prisoners to climb out and escape the mountain.
>>405931
Inside, the two horks are flanking an imposing figure.
It turn to face you as you open the door.
His face is not like those of the others. It is more detailed and intricate, elongated and with a set of four horns like some sort of foul dragon.
He has strong muscles and a pair of large, leathery wings. He wields a hook-like blade.
This must be the Demon Leader…

405939

>>405936
Ready my sword.
"Oh, great. Who're ya?"

405940

>>405928
>>405936
Well, my spirits are lifted, so I'm ready to face this demon king. stare him down.

405941

>>405936
"You guys go now. We'll stay for awhile and investigate more." I wave the prisoners off.

…..
Oh shit, check out the bandit that I knocked out(that wants to get touchy feely). Tie him up and perhaps we can have a prisoner.

405942

>>405936
"Why have you been attacking the town?"
[1d10]

Roll #1 5 = 5

405943

>>405936
Demon king?
I should sit in the back.
"You go heroes!"

405945

>>405943
Inspire with that.

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7

405949

>>405941
Lets see if he wakes up as you do
'1d10'
>>405939
>>405940
>>405942
He raises a long, sharp finger to point at you
"You…
Why have you come to this place…
What is it you hope to accomplish by standing against us?"


Roll #1 4 = 4

405950

>>405949
>>405941
Nope. Sound asleep unless you wake him up.

405951

>>405949
"To stop the abductions!"

405953

>>405949
Jump up and point my own finger at him from the back, cocky smile on my face.
"For glory, of course!"
Inspire again!

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

405955

>>405949
"We are simply here to stop the humens from being taken, why not just tell us what you even need humens for. We can settle this peacefully can't we?" '1d10+3'

Roll #1 1 + 3 = 4

405956

>>405949
"We are here to stop the disappearances and find out why the people were being taken."

405957

>>405951
>>405953
>>405955
>>405956
"You meddle with far greater things than you understand. Leave my mountain. Leave and run far. Lest I add you to my hunting grounds."

405958

>>405950
>>405949
Tie him up and then wake him up.
'1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

405959

>>405957
Well, sit down.
I should start keeping track of this stuff. Villain monologues are a strong points of epic ballads.

405960

>>405957
"We will not run demon king. We will stand and fight for the one who can not. We will free these people, for the sake of love." Draw my blade and glare at him.

405962

>>405957
"How about you stop doing this and surrender."
I look around. Where are the others?

405963

>>405957
"I think we can take you."

405966

>>405960
>>405962
>>405963
"Yeah, tell him heroes!"
Inspire.

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

405968

>>405958
"Oh… you again.
What was that hit for?"
>>405960
>>405962
>>405963
>>405966
"So be it then, fools.
I am The Wind of Destruction, the king of the Mountain Demons, and a Lord of the New Dawn. Your heads will make a fine warning to those who would come after you. That I will not be stopped!"

He unfolds his wings and roars as the two masked Horks charge.

BOSS: The Wind of Destruction
Should we wait for our missing players, or?

405971

>>405968
Yes we should.

405972

405973

405974

>>405968
Cheap shot one of the Horks
And yes, we wait.

405978

>>405974
Combat has already begun. Roll.

405985

>>405978
Nevermind, change that to Inspire then.

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

405986

>>405968
Wait am I the only one missing?

"You know the answer to that. Now tell me, why are there so many prisoners here?"

405989

>>405986
"Why should I tell you anything?
You don't seem anywhere near as nice as I thought you'd be."

406001

>>405968
are we fighting now?

406002

>>405989
I give him a stare.
"How nice should I be huh? I hit you in the head because you will rat me out, its survival instinct thats what they call."

"Now tell me whats is happening here or you will suffer."

406004

>>406001
Waiting on Dsty.

406008

>>406002
"Make me."

406016

>>406008
I scratch my head.
"Alright?"

……
"I really am not fond or even good at torture and stuff. How do I go with this? Stab you in the hand or the neck?"

406020

>>406016
"You're not fond of torture and I'm not fond of pain.
Why don't we just make a deal?"

406024

>>406020
I stare at him.
"I'm listening."

406029

>>406024
"You give me what I want, I give you what you want, we both go away happy and unharmed?"

406038

>>406029
"You really have little power to demand with your predicament right now, you know that."

406041

>>406038
>to demand anything from me considering your predicament

406043

>>406038
>>406041
He nods towards the thirty sleeping bandits
"Actually, I am."

406055

>>406043
……………
How did I miss those guys.
I gulp and look back at him.
"Alright what is this deal? Speak."

406058

>>406055
"You lose the clothes and let me go, and I'll you about our operation."

406062

>>406058
I bit my lips and clenched my fist.
"If not, you will shout and wake everyone right?"

406063

>>406062
"Between that and being tortured, yes, I think I choose raising the alarm."

406065

>>406063
"…. fuck."
Take off my clothes slowly in front of him, but not my undergarment.

406067

>>406065
He shrugs
"Hm. Good enough.
Now, untie me, please."

406070

>>406067
Remove my underwear too.
"You want to see everything right?"

With that I approach him and stuff my underwear to his mouth! Prevent him from shouting!

'1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

406071

>>406070
He seems oddly ok with this outcome.
Though now he can't tell about what's going on either.

406073

>>406071
Drag him out of here and into a more secluded location.
'1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

406074

>>406073
He is quite heavy…
After some sweaty and exhausting pushing and shoving you manage to roll him to the edge of the hillside, away from the lumber camp.
He didn't seem to mind the extra physical contact.

406075

>>406074
Take away the panty from his mouth.
"Now talk, before I let you go."

406079

>>406075
"Well you turned out to be a fine upstanding young lady.
My friends work for the Wind of Destruction, an eccentric fellow who hired us to gather villagers to help in some large project he is working on. It seems to need a lot of healthy, strong bodies, whatever it is. He was also very interested in the timber, so I guess he is building something. Probably wants to make an estate on the cheap.
My only complaint is that he is prone to being so dramatic…"

406082

>>406079
"…. maniac…" I fume and blush a little.
Get my clothes and put them on. Also clean my panty and dry them before putting it on.

"Go on and keep on speaking, why is he so dramatic? Also, do you have any idea on bandits wearing demon mask to take away villagers?"

406084

>>406082
"I guess he's just like that.
Proud too. I don't think I've ever seen him take an insult, challenge or dare well.
As for the masks, that's just kinda thing he insisted on. He even had a really nice one himself. I guess so nobody would see his face and know who he is."

406085

>>406084
I then giggled uncontrollably upon hearing this.
"Really? So you really are the guys who goes from town to town to kidnap townsfolks."

"Hey hey, you know what? There is this priest in this town that likes to create ceremonies to ward you guys off. He even prays for like a whole day or week and is really convinced that you guys have come from hell. Really is making a fool out of himself when I saw him and I was right." I then laughed.

406088

>>406085
"I guess the masks did they job then.
Can you untie me now?"

406089

>>406088
I stand near him.
"How can I be sure that after I take off those ropes that you wont just attack me. Also I dont want you to go back to that base of yours to warn your friends about what has happened so this is a bit of a predicament."
I look at the cliff before looking back to him.

406091

>>406089
"Well somehow I get the feeling I'm about to lose my job here in any case. Maybe it's time to move on and cook for someone else?"

406093

>>406091
"Hmmm… alright" Go and untie him.
"Run, I have to go and see if there are more things to be done before I go back and report to my village."

406094

>>406093
He rubs his wrists, then kneels down to face level with you
"How about a parting kiss for good luck, Red?"

406096

>>406094
I give him an irritated look.
"After you treathen to make your way to me back there, you really are pushing your luck."

"No."

406098

>>406096
"Eh, was worth a try."
He pats you on the head, stands up and leaves whistling a merry tune.
