[ERROR] No.28666947 [DELETED]  [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

You are Reinhold, master swordsman and victor of the Royal Swordsmanship Tournament. The King was so impressed with your skill, he personally requested that you be transferred out of the army and into the Royal Guard! Not bad for an orphan who was raised in a brothel in a poor fishing village.

The only issue at this point is your assignment... you've been charged to be the personal guard of the King's only daughter Marianne. While she is the vision of loveliness that you'd expect from a Princess, her personality is... well... she seems to have some issues.

After your sparring match with Takamaru, Luciana led you to the balcony, which is apparently her favorite place in the castle. It looked like she wanted to talk with you about something, but then a group of four masked men appeared out of nowhere, attacking you and carrying Luciana off...

...like hell you're about to let them succeed.


>Congratuations, you are now a mangy DOG!
>While dogs are loyal, they're not all that smart...
>The Princess now considers you to be her friend!
>But while dogs are man's best friend, they still don't count as people.

...shit.

There's a masked man attacking you, Takamaru's held up fighting two more by himself, and there's a fourth that's trying to run off with Luciana... fortunately, she's really struggling so he's not able to gain much speed.

But still, you need to get save her before the masked kidnappers(?) are able to get away... and the burning desire to hack all of these fuckers into little bits is throwing you off somewhat.

Setting that desire aside, you try and quickly figure out a plan... this piece of shit in front of you doesn't matter, and Takamaru can most likely take care of himself. Yeah, the best course of action would be to push past this guy somehow and try and get Luciana free.

But how?

I have no idea why you think that. This was a fairly well put together ambush, considering how paranoid the King is about her security.

Gotta just put out there the fact that Scheming-Luciana, though unlikely, seems deliciously more interesting if she's really playing the game on this level.

You know what you need to do, now you just need to actually pull it off.

"Howling winds, gather beneath my feet..." you chant under your breath as you swing your sword at your masked attacker. He dodges it effortlessly, however, and lunges at you with his knife. Parrying his attack with a heavy horizontal swing of your sword, you then kick him in the chest, sending him stumbling back a few feet.

Taking advantage of that opening, you dash towards him and continue chanting.
"...and guide me on my journey! TAILWIND!" you shout as your running speed suddenly triples.

As he realizes what you're doing, the masked man plants his feet on the ground and braces himself for impact...

...but you're not aiming for him, changing direction -ever- so slightly and batting him aside with your sword. He manages to block it with his knife, but the sheer momentum you've gained is more than enough to send him flying into a wall.

Seeing you coming, Luciana's eyes grow wide with what you assume is hope. Flailing with renewed vigor, she manages to throw her would-be captor somewhat off balance as he continues his mad dash towards the other side of the balcony.

Stumbling due to the sheer vigor of Luciana's flailing, the masked man scrambles to keep his grip on the crimson-haired princess... and then he suddenly drops her and clutches his side in pain.

Luciana falls to the ground and rolls out of your way as you rush in, still under the effects of your spell... and you then swing at the masked man as hard as you possibly can.

Quickly pulling out a knife to try and parry your attack, his defensive actions are rendered completely useless thanks to the added force that Tailwind contributes to the impact of your blow, sending his knife flying and your sword right through his arm.

"GHAAAAAAAA!!!" he screams in anguish. He thought he could get away, but now this piece of shit has both a severed forearm and a stab to his side to deal with...

Making the odds more even, or better in our favor, is always a plus. Right now we need to get this princess secure, and then rush to OUR princess.

If these guys are in the castle and found our spot we went to on a whim, odds are there's more of them elsewhere. The other bodyguards and regular guards probably have their hands full. If the king and his men didn't spot them he could be seriously injured.

"How dare you..." Luciana mutters as she rises to her feet, clutching a blood-soaked dagger in one hand. "Of all the times to pull this garbage, you pick TONIGHT..." she says, trembling with anger.

You try to rush in to get between Luciana and her injured attacker, but she pushes you aside with her free arm.

"Let my rigid will bend even the toughest of stones. And all that does not kneel before me shall be instead crushed before my terrible might." she chants softly, raising her arm into the air. "Colossus Hold."

Frantically, the masked man darts his gaze around in anticipation for whatever attack spell that Luciana just conjured up... but said attack comes from a direction that he doesn't expect.

As he backs against one of the balcony's stone pillars, the masked man screams in horror as a massive stone hand sprouts from it and envelops his entire body save his head in its grushing grip.

You can see him struggling to free himself, but it's no use... Luciana has him completely immobilized. Just as the urge comes across you to plant your sword right in between his eyes for daring to attack one of YOUR FRIENDS, you remember that this eyesore isn't the only one around...

...shit.

You turn around just in time to see the man who you knocked aside rising to his feet and making a beeline for you.

Firming your stance, you ready your sword for the attack. After making sure that Luciana is safely behind you and the other masked man is still inside his stone prison, you prepare for another charge...

But just as you're about to rush in to meet your attacker, you hear Takamaru shouting from the other side of the balcony.

Looking over where Takamaru is, you see that he's surrounded by a pile of severerd body parts where there were once two more masked attackers. It looks like Luciana and Andreas wasn't kidding when she said that his magic was geared towards murdering the hell out of people...

"Princess! Reinhold! Are you okay!?" he shouts as he runs towards the two of you.
"Y- yes, we're fine..." Luciana replies, wiping tears from her eyes. "Thank you, Reinhold."

Giving the balcony a once-over, it seems that all of the masked men are accounted for, between the remains of the three that Takamaru killed and the one that Luciana captured. But then a thought hits you- what if Marianne's in danger too!?

"Luciana, we need to-" you stammer, but Luciana simply shakes her head.
"Don't worry, Reinhold," Luciana sighs. "They attacked on the balcony because they can't get into the castle proper."
"But how can you be sure?"

"The interior of the castle is warded heavily, and I personally made sure that the guards patrolled twice as much as usual," Luciana replies, scowling at her would-be attacker. "And Marianne's with her father all day today, so she'll be fine."
"But even still..." you say, glancing towards the glass door to the balcony.

You can see several guards approaching... it certainly took them long enough.

"These men were after Princess Luciana," Takamaru says as he wipes off his sword and sheathes it.
"Yes, I've had to put up with this garbage for several weeks now... " Luciana sighs. "Ever since a few days after I got back from Granache, they've been trying to kidnap me specifically."

After casting Healing Grace to stop the flow of blood that's surely gushing out from what remains of his arm, Luciana sighs and punches him in the face as hard as she can, shattering his mask.

"I'd like you to know that I'd like for nothing more than to stab you in the face with this dagger here for ruining my night," Luciana says as she holds it up to the man's face. "But I am a lady and I'd much prefer for my friend here to not think of me as some kind of barbarian, so I will ask you nicely instead."

But without either magical truth spells, or at least another prisoner to collaborate stories, anything this guy tells us will be worthless, as we have no way of knowing if it's the truth, or if he's just saying whatever comes to mind to try to get you to stop the pain. Torture doesn't work well if it's the only strategy you have. I also imagine reinhold would be kind of uncomfortable with the princess doing something like that. Probably.

"Very well, I believe you," Luciana says with a sigh.

She then releases her grip, sending the battered man falling to the floor in a crumpled heap of broken bones and blood-soaked clothing. The stone hand that had been holding him then melts back into the stone pillar that it had sprouted from.

"W... what now, are you gonna have me thrown in the dungeon or something...?" the man says as he struggles to get up on his knees.
"You did cooperate, so I'll leave my uncle out of this," Luciana says, a cold look in her eyes. "But there's still the matter of trying to kidnap me, and ruining what would have been an otherwise enjoyable evening... not to mention that your friends tried to murder both my bodyguard and my dear friend here, both of whom are VERY important to me."

The man cringes as it looks like Luciana is about to kick him in the face, but she catches herself and sighs, then turns away from him.

"Takamaru?" Luciana says.
"Very well," Takamaru replies with a nod.

rein should be comfortable with death, yeah, but they just executed a disarmed man in cold blood. remember she's like 14 or something, there's something a little bit creepy about her so casually ordering a man's death.

So Luciana totally just told Takamaru to kill a guy and then he did it.

You're not really horribly bothered by it, considering that he was a worthless piece of shit who you would have gladly killed yourself, but it -was- rather surprising to find out that Luciana can be that cold.

"...so all we know now is that they wanted to get you out of the way before the ball?" you ask.
"Pretty much," Luciana sighs as she turns away from the scene of carnage. "...though I suppose I'm safe for now, considering that they failed. I just need to stay inside."
"Yes, that would be best," Takamaru says.
"Come on, let's get out of here before we start smelling like dead bodies," Luciana says, motioning for you and Takamaru to follow her back inside the castle.

Seeing you coming, the guards open the door for the thtree of you and take care to stay out of your way.

"Princess, are you okay?" one of the guards asks. "There's blood on your hand..."
"Yes, but it isn't mine," Luciana replies. "I'm fine and unhurt, thanks for asking."

"And what about you guys?" he asks, turning to you and Takamaru.
"I am unhurt," Takamaru replies, nodding.
"Same here," you say.

"I'm actually kind of worried about Marianne, so I think I'll go and check on her just in case," you say to Luciana.

"Umm... I wouldn't mind if you wanted to come back after you went to check on her. If you want, I mean..." Luciana says to you.
"Sorry, it's been kind of a rough day," you reply with a weak smile. "Maybe we can hang out some other time, though."
"Oh..." she says, frowning slightly. "...that's fine, I guess I'll be seeing you tomorrow then."

You then wave goodbye to them and make your way back to your room. You can hear Luciana angrily barking orders to the guards and those same guards apoliogizing profusely, but you pay it no mind, for seeing to Marianne is your main priority right now.

Walking as fast as you can without raising suspicion, you pass through the corridors of the castle and make your way back to your suite. Opening the door, you find...

I disagree with your statement.

We haven't been avoiding anyone ever except maybe for Sylvie due to a spike of hysteria on part of some people. We're simply doing our thing and she does not materialize out of nowhere just to interact with us at random places.

So yeah, we see less of her, but on the other hand we've met dragon twins.

Straight from the horse's mouth, Reinhold considers her a friend. In all caps even. If your assertion was that he had no romantic interest then I would say sure, that's a reasonable argument at this time, but the idea that we don't like her as a friend is 100% flat wrong.

You are just talking out of your ass and trying to reflect your own to character instead of roleplaying.

Strictly speaking, I think that without our timely interference they would have gotten away with her, despite the knife(!) Luciana apparently carries.

Taka was fine dealing with the two who were distracting him, and at least one more of the attackers at range, but could he have caught up to the one holding Luciana if they'd gotten off the balcony? His magic sounds as if it's mainly damage, and would likely put the princess at risk if he tried to take out the last kidnapper in traditional style.

And from a narrative/gameplay standpoint it'd probably make sense for the attackers to get away if the protagonist fucked up.

But that's getting meta and it boils down to >opinions so.

You know, given the nature of Tailwind, couldn't we technically move its application to something OTHER than our legs? What if we figured out a method to apply it to our sword, thus granting us increased speed, and therefore momentum - which in turn leads to us slicing faster and HARDER than before. Our combat style is already based on the principle of smashing through swords and cleaving shit in half. Now we just need to figure out a way to do it FASTER and HARDER.

Until we can basically pull a Tsukihime the next time we run into 'thiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesorethiseyesore' encounters and reduce them to giblets.

>> No.28673306

>>28673208
Tailwind itself basically acts as a magical jet-booster, but I'd wager that a similar more advanced spell exists that does what you're describing (Boost basically does, except it also amplifies a bunch of other stuff like strength as well, and has that nasty after-effect). The concept seems simple enough, and cut-stuff-faster seems like something that people would want since magical swordsmen are so popular.

>> No.28673315

I think you fear too much and without reason. This Eyesore thing is just OP teasing us and playing with us, just like with that golden witch thing. There's no way the tender, sensitive soul of Marianne would be a psychopatic mass murderer waiting to happen. No, Marianne will gradually develop into the great princess and queen we all know she can be.

>> No.28673339

>>28673315
As the person who posted this >>28668841, I agree, the eyesore thing is obviously (probably, hopefully) just a reference, not some kind of really meta insanity alarm.

Now, if we fucking lose it and senselessly butcher something/someone while mumbling/screaming it then we can worry.

>> No.28673350

>>28673306
Well, if memory serves Tailwind increases momentum exponentially. It's not really a jet-booster move, but it increases the rate of acceleration in some form or fashion. But it seems mainly isolated towards the movement of our entire body itself.

If memory serves, based on Arch's description on how magic functions, so long as something has enough magic imbued in it to be considered 'alive', then it can be targeted with a spell (for example, you can probably cast Sanctuary on a cat, or something like that, but you can't cast it on a rock or some other inanimate object).

The closest I can imagine us reaching a point wherein we could apply Tailwind to our sword is if our sword becomes a sentient, living weapon.

I vote we try to make it a male identity, not a female one. We have enough potential love interests, we need to build up our bro stack.

>> No.28673361

>>28673315
Oh, I wasn't implying that we'd lose our shit and go CRAZY like in Tsukihime with my Tailwind idea. I was more referring to the actual ACT itself of slashing through everything in straight lines until nothing remained, at rapid-fire paces. I could've just as easily said we could go full Metal Gear Rising (I even used an image from there after all), but I figured that since we were already talking EYESORE I might as well follow the train of thought of the thread.

Also, it'd thusly be all of the righteous win if our sword has some kind of 'memories of being with Volker' imbued in it. Kind of a "If I could've talked back then" deal where the sword snarks about the shit he's seen. Although that does open the possibilities of him talking shit about Reinhold too..
