Raisin Quest 4: A Terrible Misunderstanding FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 364284[Last 50 Posts]

Welcome, Raisin Questers, to the beginning of the end. Victory or utter defeat lies within inches of your grasp. It may take some cunning and wit, but our favorite little golem pony has a chance to save her friends, herself, and all of Equestria from a fiery fate. Are you ready?

Let’s go over the summary just to be sure:

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 364286

>Move the stack of Marble Slabs toward the incomplete bridge with the Diamond Dog’s help
>–Scootaloo, Applebloom, and Sweetie Belle enthusiastically jump under the slab with you to help push–
>**Warn your friends that the top slab could crush them when the bottom slab falls into place**
>Fetch a third slab to help safely push the first one into place; Room is filled with thunderous crash (3/4)
>Climb atop the third slab to kick the topmost slab down into place; Room is filled with thunderous crash (4/4)
>xXx Repeated crashes has alerted a Boulder Snake xXx
>Scramble for a hiding place behind the last Marble Slab in the Slab pile
>** Bring the torch, bury it in an attempt to snuff it out. Use Golem Strength to push it deeper into the ground until the flame dies out completely **
>–Slowly poke head above slab, noticing the snake doesn’t seem to detect you–
>–Throw a Box of Nails into the red crystal chasm for a distraction–
>**Have the Dig Dogs burrow a little ways under the Marble Slab to hide your team**
>–Stay out of the hole so that it can be buried properly–
>**Remain perfectly still while the Boulder Snake silently lurks about the room**
>**Boulder Snake begins eating the Marble Slab; you remain perfectly still**
>Boulder Snake is bopped out of the room by a co-worker
>–Bridge has been haphazardly completed by the curious Snake–
>Applebloom ties a rope around herself and around you to shimmy across a partially fallen slab 1/25 chance that the slab gives way and careens into the chasm, Doom Number 17, rolled a 15
>Sweetie Belle ties the rope around herself and tries to shimmy across… 1/25 chance the slab slips and falls into the crystalline abyss, Doom Number 2, rolled a 2
>–The slab gives and crashes into the crystals below, causing a thunderous sound to echo about the room…–
>Scootaloo is launched across, sliding to a stop on the other side. The Diamond Dogs are able to jump across and scale the rocky wall.

As Raisin affixes the rope about her midsection and prepares to be lifted to the other side of this horrible, crystal filled bridge room, she hears the distinctive hiss of a pair of Boulder Snakes heading toward her team. Meeting them eye to eye as she’s hoisted up, the little stone golem pulls herself onto the rocky ledge and stands in front of a set of towering crystal doors. Gurgling magma pops and hisses far down the magnificent hallway as the distant, glowing eyes across the room track the group’s movement.

With imminent danger on your tails and unknown peril dead ahead, it’ll be up to you, the Questers, do guide Raisin to her fate. Will she and her friends survive the next challenge in store for them?

Time to find out. Good luck, Questers.

Raisin: Hayseed, Box of Quarter Sticks (x3) (Box has sustained mild water damage), Royal Medallion, Spool of Rope (Equipped)

Applebloom: CMC Cape (Equipped as Bandage to Right Forehoof), Hammer, Money Bag + 100 Bits, Stompstarter

GAME INFO: Turning to look toward the massive, towering crystal doors, you see that they must be at least 2 ponies thick. You think it'd be hard to fit a piece of paper between the bottom of the door and the floor it's suppose to glide over in order to close. They appear to be beautifully engineered, though they certainly don't look very practical.

Just around the sides of right door, you see a fascinating, massive set of gears.

GAME INFO: On either side of the main entrance, you see two significantly smaller doors. They are filled with perfect blackness, making it impossible to see where they may lead.

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 364321

GAME INFO: You've been down in the caves for quite some time. Many hours have passed since you first dove into the opening near the schoolhouse. You're not completely sure what time it is, but by the look on your friends' faces, it appears as though you've been awake all night. It could very well be morning by now.

GAME INFO: Beyond the massive doors, you can see down a very long, opulent hallway. The architecture down this way looks much like the hallway you used to enter the bridge room, though the columns down here are made of beautiful, glassy red crystal.

At the far end, you can see the alluring glow of hot, orange magma. It hisses and broils in the distant chamber.

GAME INFO: That would be a good rough estimate. The Boulder Snakes are absolutely massive. The mechanism on the right wall just beyond the doors also appears massive. It looks as though it was engineered to somehow be operated by these giant, rock eating monsters, though without closer inspection, you have no way of telling how to operate it.

Hah, me too. Finally got around to catching up in time for this session, a couple of things I noted:
Those blue magic gems are totally the malecite that LS was working with and had Zecora refine for him.

The Ruby snake was in town at about midnight to destone a snake, then headed back through the tunnels underneath the schoolhouse.
-Magma pool: Appeared after queen came that way, perhaps the queen traveling leaves magma behind her somehow? The other tunnels didn't seem to be the result of magma tunnelling, and in fact had scratches on their sides.

If we can get ourselves destoned before we have to face the dogs, we should be able to bargain for our freedom since a non-rock filly can't pull carts; if Sweetie goes free we can get her to trade her gems for our freedom, or else we might be able to get SpeedyHelmet to send word out for someone to come trade for us. If we can't destone ourselves though, we might just have to escape somehow.

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 364350

As you look back to the entrance at the far end of the room, you see two pairs of glowing eyes staring back. They simply blink, unwavering and stationary. It fills your stony gut with a horrid feeling.

"S-s-snakes!" Scootaloo pops up as she notices what you've been staring at. Sweetie Belle and Applebloom gasp as they catch sight of the snakes for themselves.

One of the snakes hiss in retort. "Dare you not enter that hallway…"

You tap Applebloom, then motion back toward the doors. "We're going through there. Make sure nopony gets left behind…"

"Roger, Raisin…" Applebloom follows your lead, directing the team back toward the doors.

As your brave team all slowly move toward the hallway, the Snakes instantly spring into action. As one races toward the last marble slab, the other starts climbing up the wall and into the stalactites overhead.

"Run!" Scootaloo bolts into the hallway with the Diamond Dogs close behind her. In a matter of moments, your team has made it through the doors, though the Boulder Snakes are quickly closing the distance.

GAME INFO: Many of the Boulder Snakes appear to have a serious demeanor to them, though you haven't seen too many up close yet. There's bound to be a goofy looking one around here somewhere.

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 364376

Looking over the mechanism, Applebloom is able to quickly determine that the set of gears are attached to some sort of crank. The crank wheel is too massive for you or the Diamond Dogs to operate, but it looks like it's used to wind up a chain. A stopping pin appears to be keeping the wheel from unwinding.

She guesses it could somehow be related to opening or closing the doors, but she's not sure.

GAME INFO: You took a spear to the side, but until now, you never really thought back on it. As the Snakes slither closer, you feel your side to discover that the hole is still there. It doesn't feel as though it's cracking at all, thankfully.

Anonymous 364379


Could we use the rope to lasso the crank and pull the wheel, or is it too high?

Anonymous 364380


How big is the stopper? Could Scootaloo get thrown up there and maybe dislodge it?

Anonymous 364382


Picture please.

Anonymous 364384


The crank isn't the problem, the stopping thingy is. We gotta pull it out. Might try lassoing that, though.

Anonymous 364386


Could just dislodge it from an impact from her thick skull.

Anonymous 364389


It might be bigger than her though. Plus those pegasus bones are probably thin and fragile like bird bones.

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 364395

GAME INFO: The crank part of the wheel could potentially be lasso'd, but there may be no way to actually turn it. Considering it's massive size, it appears to have been specifically engineered for use by the Boulder Snakes.

GAME INFO: The stopping pin is pretty close to the ground. The small tooth keeps the massive crank gear in place.

Anonymous 364398


Close enough to dislodge ourselves? We can try that.

Anonymous 364400


Wrap the rope around the tooth and pull, just like when you have a toothache.

"Wait! Don't run ahead! We've gotta shut this thing!"

Scootaloo cranks her head back, then slides to a stop. Her hooves shuffle in place as she and the Diamond Dogs look for a place to hide. "Hurry!"

Thinking in a panic, you look over the gears again, noticing a giant metal pick on a spring jamming into the base of the gear. It looks like a stopping pin of some sort.

"Applebloom! Help me lasso that thing! We've gotta pull it out!" You hoof her over one end of the rope, tying the other around your waist. She quickly ties a lasso and tries to get it to spin, but struggles.

"Ah wish Applejack were here…" She panics to get the rope into a steady circle.

The snake slithering through the stalactites nears the door. He lets out a chilling hiss as he looks for a way to climb down. You can almost hear him chuckling to himself.

Finally, Applebloom throws the lasso end toward the stopping pin. It loops around the arm and cinches up as she gives it a steady pull. "Whoa! Ah did it!" She shouts. "Look! Ah actually managed ta…"

The Boulder Snake lands on the stony platform outside the door. His head smacks down hard, leaving him dizzy for a second.

"Pull! Pull it!" Applebloom hits your flank a few times out of sheer panic. You lean forward just a bit, giving the rope a steady pull. You can hear it flaying apart under the stress.

As the snake just outside the doors shakes off his daze, you can hear Sweetie Belle mumbling something in fear. Listening as the frail rope seems to be tearing itself apart, you bolt toward the mechanism.

"R-Raisin!?" Applebloom looks back to you, towards the door, then bolts to Scootaloo. You gallop as fast as you can to the gears, spin around, then give the pin a sturdy kick. Instantly, you hear the twang of steel and a creaking inside of the wall. You're hit by something as you go flying down the hallway a good distance. You hear Scootaloo shriek "incoming Raisin!" before you slam into the crystalline floor of the grand hallway.

A cacophonous roar churns out near the mechanism. You can see the stopping pin laying out on the floor, bent at a sharp angle where you kicked it. The gears spin uncontrollably as the doors begin to close. The last thing you see on the other side is the panicked expression of the Boulder Snake that nearly made his way into the room.

You see your friends blown back a little as the door slams shut. The gears on the wall promptly become dislodged, getting pulled up into the wall a ways before stopping.

"Raisin! Ya did it!" Applebloom jumps up. "Are you okay?"

"I think so…?"

"…no going back now, huh?" Scootaloo shakes her mane.

You check your leg, seeing a little chunk of rock missing. The pin must have clipped you as the mechanism was failing. "Probably not, no."

You take a few moments to let the team recuperate. Faintly, you think you can hear the Boulder Snakes pounding on the other side of the door. Behind you is a massive hallway leading toward a glowing orange light… further in, you swear you can see another light hovering in the distance.

"What is that?" Sweetie Belle asks from the safety of one of the Diamond Dogs' arms.

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 364520

Looking up in this massive corridor gives you a sense of vertigo. The ceiling is incredibly high up.

"Hey… just in case we have to do something quick… do you dogs know how deep we are?"

Surprisingly, you see the dogs nearly drooling as they look forward at the distant light. One points toward it and starts chuckling. Another is slowly shaking his head back and forth in disbelief.

"Uh… boys?"

They seem to be marveling at the distant light, already starting to lead the way. They look back, motioning you to follow them.

"…alright… I have a terrible feeling about this, but alright."

"I think they know what it is…?" Sweetie Belle looks over the Diamond Dog's shoulder and back to you, Scootaloo, and Applebloom.

GAME INFO: The chunk missing from the back of your leg is relatively small. It looks like a small pie slice was cracked out of your left rearleg, though it isn't impeding your movement at all.

One of them stops. He taps the others.

"But Raisin… where else is there to go?" Applebloom looks about. "We're kinda locked in here, what with the door opener all busted up…"

"I-I don't know… what if Raisin's right, though?" Sweetie Belle looks ahead. "It looks too… pretty to be safe." She squints at the bright light at the end of the hallway.

You bravely step around the Diamond Dogs, taking the lead. The light is certainly alluring amidst the orange glow. Bright and almost blinding, it almost feels reassuring, like the nearly forgotten feeling of warm sunshine on a Summer's day.

"You're right, Sweetie. Let's be cautious about how we approach this thing…"

You lead your brave team down the crimson crystal path, looking up toward each archway as you pass underneath. Besides the patter of hooves and claws against the vitreous path, the only other sounds you hear are the increasingly frequent bursts of magma boiling up ahead.

"What do you think they keep down here?" Scootaloo wonders.

"Nothing good, judgin' by them big doors back there…" Applebloom figures.

As you approach the last few arches, you see that the room opens up magnificently. The entire chamber is made of a gorgeous ruby colored crystal. The dogs tremble excitedly as the begin taking up small handfuls of loose gems along the path.

The source of the blinding light finally becomes clear. A humongous, pulsating gem sits loosely secured by some stone supports in the center of the massive chamber. It precariously hangs above a gigantic pool of lava, probably the biggest collection you've seen since you entered the caves. Magma seems to be pooling in from a few spots down below.

"Wh-what is this place? What is that?" Sweetie Belle scrunches up her face in confusion.

Across the room, you spot a doorway. Through it, you can see something moving, though the distance makes it unclear as to what it could be.

Seconded, is there a walkway, or a way down? Also, is the doorway across the way on the same level as us?

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 364636

You straight up, seeing the cavern roof far, far off into the distance. The entire way up is lined with crystals, but judging by how the Diamond Dogs seem to be chipping them off of the walls, they look rather frail.

"Hey, Dogs… how far beneath the surface do you think this room is?"

The Dogs all look up, noticing that the ceiling seems to ascend up forever. Instead of taking the usual measurement, he just nods. He looks over at you, then holds his paws apart. It looks like he could fit two ponies between them.

"That's how thick the ceiling is here?!"

He shrugs half-heartedly.

"So, you're just guessing then?"

He nods.

GAME INFO: The supports come from a ring pathway around the edge of the pool, all becoming more narrow as they near the pulsing gem. They appear to be thick enough to traverse. The magma pool appears to be at least 30 feet below you.

Several small doorways line the walls of the circular chamber room, but judging by their semi-molten appearance, they're being used to transport magma into the room.

Looking at the pulsating gem and the gigantic collection of magma below, you figure that this must be it. This is volcano chamber the Red Snake mentioned way back when she was reviving one of her subjects during the midnight storm. You carefully reach into your saddlebags to find your quarter sticks…

"Oop.. wrong pocket…" Your hoof gently brushes up against Hayseed's mane. You know it's her by how she moves in the pocket. You wish you could feel her soft little mane brush up against your hoof again. Carefully, you close the pocket back up, then tap the others until you hear the hollow sound of the wooden Quarter Sticks box.

"Hey.." You hoof the box over to one of the Diamond Dogs. He opens it up, looking at the sticks. "Bring the roof down, would you?"

He nods, then points to one of his comrades with the torch and shrugs.

"Oh, right… only one of you has a way to light them up…"

Scootaloo looks over and sees you handing the Diamond Dogs the quarter sticks. "Whoa… things are about to get really serious…"

"Wait, hold on… Scootaloo, you've still got a Stompstarter on you, right?"

"I think so…" She reaches into her saddlebags. "Something has been digging into my side for the past couple hours…" She withdraws a shiny red Stompstarter from one of her pockets and hoofs it over to you.

You give it to one of the Diamond Dogs. "Here… Applebloom? You have one too, right?"

"Yeah, hold on…" She reaches into her Saddlebag to pull out a slightly used one. She carries it in her mouth over to the last dog. He holds it in his paw and cleverly uses his thumb to strike it.

The main dog hands each one a stick, then turns toward you. He holds out a paw, giving you a serious look.


He shakes his arm up and down, then rests it in front of your face again.

You rest your stony hoof on his paw. He wraps his fingers around it and gives it a firm shake, though strains to move it without your help.

"Somehow I think that you don't entirely have faith in me, but thanks, I guess."

He grins and shakes his head, then lets go of your hoof. He points at you with a smirk, then backs up toward his team. They immediately start climbing up the walls, fanning out across the dome like chamber ceiling. You notice them moving a bit more carefully as they ascend, taking care not to slip on their way up.

"I hope this works…"

"What? Ya mean you're not sure?" Applebloom looks slightly worried.

GAME INFO: Sweetie Belle let that one Diamond Dog carry her around for quite a while…

Nope, the deal there was that the three dogs'd help us in return for all the treasure, and that we could keep one treasure in return for becoming DD property. No sapphires involved.

GAME INFO: Turning toward the doorway at the far end of the room, you can still see a figure moving about. It looks like the crystals themselves are slowly swaying, but it's still quite hard to tell.

Squinting harder, you can see what appears to be the outline of a cobra hood…

"Don't worry Applebloom. Have I ever got us into something we couldn't get out of?"

She pauses for a few moments, then nods. "Well, we've been in some close scrapes, but you always figured us a way out. Ah trust ya…"

"I'm not sure I do… but you haven't failed us yet." Scootaloo bumps your chest with her bandaged hoof. "I really don't know how we're going to get out of here, though."

Sweetie Belle stares up at the giant, pulsating gem, slightly mesmerized. "Why did the snakes hide this thing so deep underground? What is it?"

You see magma start to trickle in from a doorway on the side of the room, pouring into the cauldron below. It gurgles and broils as it helps fill the pool.

You watch as the Diamond Dogs climb toward the ceiling. It looks like they're climbing into a sky covered in crimson glass. Though they move slowly, you can tell they'll make it to the top soon.

Oddly, you think you can hear humming resonating in the chamber. Scootaloo, Applebloom, and Sweetie Belle can all hear it too.

"Hey! Snake lady!"

"Raisin!? What are yo-" Scootaloo's wings flutter as she's interrupted.

"Hmm?" You see the distant snake spin around gracefully. Her brilliant ruby coat glistens in the beaming light. Your friends cover their eyes. "It would appear my unnannounced guests have finally…" She slithers into the room. "My, what a strange assortment we have before us… we were expecting more of those foolish mutts to have wandered in passed the guards."

She slithers out onto one of the pathways leading to the beautiful, pulsating gem in the center of the chamber. She opens her hood up, casting the blinding light toward you and your friends.

"Welcome." Her soft voice echoes throughout the chamber, quickly diminished by the churning lava below.

"Hello, shiny, red… snake… My name is Raisin Merlot." You have to keep a hoof raised over your eyes to keep from being blinded by the snake's light.

"I'm Scootaloo…"

"I'm Sweetie Belle…"

"And Ah'm Applebloom…"

Your friends are wincing at the light, unable to look up.

"It appears that you have some manners beneath that puerile disrespect of yours." The calm in her voice is alluring, but doesn't bring you any peace. "We are Queen Keszeem, ruler of the mighty Boulder Snake race. What brings you… ponies… to our Grand Chambers?"

You can hear her moving, but cannot see her. She doesn't sound as though she's moving toward you, but instead to the right.

"Would you mind killing the lights? I'm starting to get a headache!" Scootaloo shouts.

"We'll get to the killing of things in but a moment… how did you four brave adventurers get in here through the main gate?" She keeps a disturbingly calm demeanor to her voice.

Before you answer, you tap the ground. You bow your head low, then whisper to your friends, "She's moving. We should do the same… back this way, to the left…"

As you begin to back away, you hear a very sudden crackling ripple up the walls. In what seems an instant, Keszeem seems to have moved behind you. "We see your lack of confidence in the hallways… you four actually ventured in here by yourselves?"

She opens her hood again, casting a blinding light down on your team. The walls seem to be just as reflective as her scales.

"Hey, you might want to keep your distance."

"We shall. It's such a curiosity imagining how you four sleuths not only evaded my children, but managed to cross the Gardens without a bridge." She forces your team to start backing up down the path she was just on.

"Obviously, you must know how by now." You make sure your friends stay behind you, then put your hooves down. Keszeem moves a little closer, then stops. "I am a descendent of Queen Adanemzurai, the cursed… golem queen. Of the east. And I'm incredibly gifted with magic."

Your friends shake in place.

"Praise be!" Scootaloo squeaks, raising a hoof half-heartedly, trying to give more credit to your witty story.

"It's not oft we have a golem for company… the daughter of Queen Adanemzurai, no less? We're honored to make your acquaintance." She keeps the light shining brightly upon your team. "Those three are your escorts, are they not? One of them must be holding your magical crown for you, then?"

She begins slithering toward you again.

"Oh?" Sweetie Belle squeaks.

"It is the only weakness of the Boulder Snakes. Surely, you can find justification to our hesitation in attacking an unknown foe?"

"Queen Keszeem… I must be honest with you. We've come looking for a treasure called the True Soul Amulet. My mother's spies reported that you have it?"

"You mean this?" She closes her hood. For a moment, you can actually see. A very sinister smile greets you. Underneath, around where her neck would be, you see a familiar amulet."

"Yes… it poses a great danger to my kingdom. We would like to secure it and… take it back to the Queen."

"Perhaps we can make an arrangement…" She opens her hood back up, continuing her advance. From behind, you hear one of the doorways gurgle. Magma begins to drain out into the main chamber pool. Applebloom shrieks as her tail nearly catches fire.

"Mind the doors. We're currently preparing the Grand Chambers for renovation." Keszeem doesn't stop moving toward you.

"It's well within your power, Princess Raisin." You hear her hiss. "You see, we've always had a lingering curiosity."

"Oh yeah? Why don't we just stop moving and talk about it for a moment?" She doesn't stop.

"Raisin! Raisin stop!" Applebloom sounds panicked. You can see the magma behind you with a small turn of your head.

"But you see, the answer is only a few moments away." She lunges forward, snapping her jaws near your head. Your friends all shriek in terror. "We've been ever so curious as to how stone ponies would taste on our refined palette."


She snaps again, though this time Sweetie Belle shouts. "My mane! "

You watch Keszeem rear up tall. "Clearly, you lack any magical powers whatsoever. Queen Adanemzurai was barren, so you are not her of her lineage. Your friends are but normal children… and judging by your interest in my amulet, you must have been cursed with your delectable form." She hisses. "Please, do stop us if we're wrong."

You hear some distant barking echo from the ceiling. Keszeem simply looks up for a moment, then arches back for another strike.

I got a good laugh outta that

Knowing the dogs are already taking down the ceiling, you know that a split second distraction will be just enough delay to save yourselves. Keszeem coils into an 'S', ready to lunge.

"Sweetie! Light! Eyes! Now!"

Fumbling, Sweetie reaches for the Large Blue Crystal. Quickly, she slaps it into her horn. In an explosive burst of brilliant light, you can feel Keszeem miss her lunge and slide up against the wall.

"Magic?!" She hisses. "…Malecite?!" Her calm voice has turned furious.

Your team runs away from the side of Keszeem's tail. She lunged herself into the magma flow, throwing up some globs of molten rock. A moment later, you hear an explosion roar through the cavern. Large slabs of rock come falling down into the room, crashing all about the pulsating gem in the center.

"NO!!" Keszeem bolts towards the center of the room down one of the pathways. She covers the gem with her hood, blinking furiously. A few rocks pummel her as you and your team move away from the little magma flow.

After the smoke clears, you see the natural morning sunlight flood into the room. The crystals in the upper chamber reflect light all the way down, filling the room with a welcoming glow. It feels good to see the blue skies again….

Keszeem appears to be fine. A blue aura surrounds her as she continues blinking her eyes.

"You will not leave this room alive! We will find you!" She scans the walls with a malevolent, angry sneer. She cocks her head back, then spits magma toward where she last was.

If that's the case we're boned. There's no way we can wrestle it off her. The moment we get close enough to even have a hope of grabbing it, she'll swallow us whole.

GAME INFO: When you first observed the use of the True Soul Amulet, you saw that a token of love was required to bring back someone that had already been cursed…

Anonymous 365007


But she's probably loved by her subjects in some weird way. Magic is weird.

Anonymous 365008


And what could the token of love be? She doesn't have any other things like a crown she wears, does she?

Anonymous 365009


Could the gem be it? She's obviously protecting it from the sun. If she was just blocking the falling debris she would have moved by now.

Anonymous 365010


I still vote for the light reflection with royal medallion.

Anonymous 365011

Perhaps Jr's hinting that a token is nescessary to bring someone back, but the amulet alone will prevent the transformation?

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 365012

The only thing that you saw Keszeem wearing was the True Soul Amulet about her neck.

Anonymous 365013

Repeating the second question here.
Is Kaszeem's position keeping the gem in shadow even with her firing about blindly?

Anonymous 365014


Well then I hope we stacked dodge skills because there's no way we could get close enough without getting slagged by lava.

Anonymous 365015

She's still blinded, remember. So long as we can stay quiet, we might be able to get close safely. Hence why I suggested making a loud noise elsewhere, so she's looking in the wrong direction even if her sight is clear enough to spot us.

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 365016

GAME INFO: While blind firing, it doesn't appear as though Keszeem is placing any special attention on covering the crystal. She seems to be leaning back a ways from it when she prepares for an attack.

"The crystals in the upper chamber reflect light all the way down, filling the room with a welcoming glow."

You could have used the pocket sand

The explosion would have triggered and we'd have a spell to pull off the amulet.

You could have stopped it.

Anonymous 365018


She's still huge. We would need to climb up on onto her body to get to wear she's wearing the amulet.

Anonymous 365019

Oh, right, she's reared up.
…Time to test AB's lassoo skills again?

Anonymous 365020


Jr, please tell us how big she is and where the amulet is in relation to the support of the gem.

Anonymous 365021


How the fuck can you lasso a necklace? It's a close loop and the amulet is probably hanging down.

Anonymous 365023


Maybe she's low enough that we could jump up and grab it if we can get directly beneath her without looking.

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 365024

GAME INFO: Keszeem is absolutely massive. She's quite a bit larger than the normal Boulder snakes you've seen. A very long, smooth golden necklace with the True Soul Amulet affixed to one end hangs just below the start of her cobra hood.

From the ground, you'd have very little chance of reaching it unless she was slithering or recovering from a lunge.

Anonymous 365025


That still would probably cause the supports to come crashing down beneath us.

Anonymous 365026


Is there any part of her body that we could hop on or something?

Anonymous 365027


Well, Wikipedia says lava typically ranges from 700*C to 1200*C, and granite melts at just about 1200*. We might be okay.

Anonymous 365028


Not if she decides to chomp us.

Anonymous 365029


We could have one of the CMC act as bait, try to goad her into a lunge.

No, no fatalities. They're much too tired and weak to do that safely. I'd rather have game over than ded filly.

Maybe if this was MGR.

GAME INFO: There are a variety of plans coming together as to how you and your beloved comrades can make the best of the current situation at hand. Though the easy way may be out of reach (>>365017), a more adventurous route may still be available if you're brave enough.

Keep in mind you have to make sure Hayseed doesn't bite the dust before you do if you want to be able to use that last life.

I know you guys are probably all feeling dead tired right now. I'd be willing to attempt to continue/wrap up this area on Sunday at the usual time. Do you guys wanna Save/Quit so you can come up with a strategy and try it out in 2 days?

If we die I will seriously stop. As much as I love Raisin, it's just too long to go through the same things over again. These games are beginning to last, no joke, half a year at a time.

Anonymous 365038


It seems like whatever we do will boil down to a random roll, so what's the point?

I told you all. I told you all there would be spectacular failure. And it's so delicious.

Would the pocket change seriously have worked. You'd think a giant beast would regard a sack of coins to be nothing more than a gentle brush

Jr said Save and quit.

Does that imply a save point here that would erase the one we had at the beginning?

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 365044

META INFO: I hear ya. Most of the time spent, though, is usually me stalling/delaying the game a week or two. I'm really looking forward to getting this quest wrapped up, but I'm not handing out victory badges. They must be earned.

If you do guys do end up dying, we might be able to barter the last life around for some sort of a compromise. Might cut you a deal to alleviate the repetition of going through another life from the beginning…

GAME INFO: There was a reason Keszeem was taking caution to approaching you. Surprising her with a hooful of golden coins may have gotten a very unexpected reaction, especially if she didn't know what you were throwing at her.

Anonymous 365045


I know exactly what's going to happen on Sunday. 4 hours of debate, then a single action which will result in death due to a bad roll.

Anonymous 365046


If we win, I want clean our room quest. Something nice and pleasant and silly.

FaceIessJr!derpv/fTOE 365047

GAME INFO: Deal. Clean your room and get Ice Cream with Sweetie Belle quest. If you win.

Anonymous 365048


>use duster of shelf

>kicks up dust bunnies
>accidentally inhale one and choke to death

Should have stayed a golem, fgt.
