You are Shax Bonemurder, Raid Leader! You're on the prowl for some gnolls, which are supposedly rude hyena men. You don't know what a hyena is, but people keep saying that like it should mean something so you nod along so people don't think you're stupid.

You're out here with the three clay golems, Allonces, Gneb, Rund, Xab, and Mani.

>I haven't abilities list yet, because I've been busy and also I'm lazy.

You've been seeing a bunch of totems and signs like that, so you figure you're getting pretty close. Allonces is looking pretty nervous, too. "Hey, elf-girl," You call out, "What's got you on edge?"

She looks about nervously before responding, "It's my adventurer sense. I can tell we're getting close."

Do they really have something as convenient as that? And if so, how did you get the drop on her party earlier?

What's the plan boss?

"Whaddaya think, boss?" Gneb asks you, looking all around the plains like a paranoid owl, "I'm gettin' the heebeejeebees thinking about all those weird hyena guys lurking around out here watching us like a bunch of creeps. Want me and the boys to go flush 'em out?"

You shake your head. "Nope. Don't take her adventure sense so seriously. Besides, we don't want to start a fight if we can help it. Nothin' says we can't get along with these gnoll guys."

Allonces sniffs loudly in what you assume is some sort of sign of disapproval, but since you don't know any SNOOTY ELF mannerisms you wouldn't know. The night basilisk you're riding waddles along at an easy pace with the lumbering clay golems behind you. All this sunlight is kinda making you dizzy, and you haven't been on such a flat and open section of the plains before. For someone used to living in a cave, it all feels a little disorienting. Up ahead, Xab is talking to Rund about some folk tale about a Gnoll Matron and her children growing up to squander some sort of kingdom. WHO CARES.

{Pardon me, Shadx.} AHHHHH. You turn around and look at the clay golems. {I just felt I should warn you that there is rampant elemental activity ahead of some kind. Whatever these creatures are, they are very good at handling spirits such as myself.} You look at them for any further info but they just remain silent.

Well, so they might have some rock guys, too? That sounds just awful.

"Hmn?" You hear Gneb grunt, "Looks like they're sending a welcoming party."

A lone shaggy dog guy with a long snout is skulking through the tall grass towards your party.

The dog guy sniffs around a bit and lopes over to you. "Hey." You instinctively fight off the urge to say 'Sup? "You're on our land. You aren't hunting us," He glances at Allonces, "We think. Who are you?"

"Hi. I'm Shax Bonemur-" You're cut off by a hiss from Allonces. You glance at her, and she waves you over. You lift a finger up at the gnoll for time and head on over.

"Why are you introducing yourself like some kind of peasant. A true leader makes someone else do it while they look all imposing." Now that you think about it, very few of your bosses ever said who they were. Maybe she has a point. You head over to the boys.

"Hey, one of you go tell that gnoll guy who I am, okay?" Gneb and Xab look at each other. Rund raises his hand. "Not you, Rund." He looks a little disappointed.

{THIS SMALL ONE IS KNOWN AS SHAX BONEMURDER, A LEADER OF THE RAIDS OF HER KIND, COMMANDING MANY FOUL CREATURES AND FEROCIOUS BEASTS!}

"Hey, I'm not that foul!" Mani shouts, waving his fists at the golems.

The gnoll looks at the golems for a moment, then back to you. "Interesting trick," It laughs for some reason that you can't figure out, "Which one of you is the shaman who commands these beasts of earth? None of you look the part." It does that wheezy laugh again. Wow, what a jerk.

A shaman? You don't have any shamans around here. Xab speaks up. "IT IS I, THE MASTER OF ELEMENTS."

The gnoll glances at him and back at you, laughing. "It isn't him."

You shrug. "I don't really see any reason to let you know that, to be honest. He's a pretty far ways away from here. What I wanna know is who you are and where your boss is so we can talk."

The dog guy snickers and shrugs. "My name is Grak'yak Fiendpaw, and I'm the... elected emissary for the united clans of Bale-eye the Foul Pawed One." He shakes his spear. "They gave me this to protect myself in case you were violent. Honestly, I'm not sure what it would have done."

You shake your sword at him. "I got this thing."

"That is quite the thing."

"Yep!" You shake it at him. "So... about your boss? Is he that Bailey guy?"

"Bale-eye. Yes. He isn't here, though." He glances behind him. There is a tangled group of low, twisted trees. "He's pretty far away, actually. Like your shaman." He points over at the trees. "But the Fiendpaw chief is that way if you want to speak to him."

"Okay sure whatever." People talk way too much in these 'diplomatic discussion' things.

"I'm glad you'll come to see us." Grak'yak leads waves you toward the shrubs and weak looking plants, and, when passing through, you feel your vision warp. A large gnoll camp unveils itself before you. There are tents and smoke a plenty, as well as plenty of yipping and chatter between the gnolls. They watch you but are otherwise not impressed as you roll in with your entourage.

Well, whatever, you don't really want to impress many people. Grak'yak leads you to the largest tent in the center. There are several dog dudes sharpening various weapons in front of it. He flips a flap up and waves you in. An absolutely huge gnoll waits for you inside. "Greetings. I hear you're a raid leader? Welcome to my encampment."

"Howdy, thanks." You look around, a gnoll wearing some sorta veil offers you a drink, and you immediately gulp it down. "So... can you please stop kicking up so much of a fuss?"

The large gnoll gives you a flat look. "What makes you think I'm in charge of what these tribes do?"

Your head is pretty dizzy from that strong tasting stuff. "Uhm, you're the boss of this tribe right? So just make them not be so noticable. Adventurers are pourin' out of Manderlay, you know. To hunt you guys."

Standing up, the big gnoll moves closer. "And that is precisely what I'd like to do. Standing out too much isn't my style. But Bale-eye... he has delusions of ascension. As if anyone has been blessed with the spirits in such a way within a century."

Oh great this is gonna be some sorta plot.

You fight the urge to roll your eyes at the slow pitch, and eat some more of the free food they have laying around. It is very spicey, but you don't care too much. Your eyes are watering from all the spices. It's okay! Free food must be eaten.

"If you'd like, I could probably convince the other chiefs to return to their more peaceful ways, but as long as Bale-eye exists the flames of war will continue to burn." This time you really do roll your eyes. "I do have a few ideas of how to take him out, but," Here he goes, he glances at you, "I'll need your help. If you're interested."

You're chewing on a tough roasted animal of some kind. You assume a lizard. Finally, you tear a chunk free. "So," you mumble through the food, "What is it you want me to do, exactly? I'm not exactly a huge group of raiders here." This stuff is practically flavorless compared to the spicey whatevers from earlier, "And I don't really wanna fight a whole army of dog guys to kill Bailey for you."

He laughs and settles down across from you. "That's the thing. You don't have to do any of that. I just need someone to bring me Arx'talokukk's sigil." You can't even pronounce that, much less know what it is. "It's a sign of favor from the elements. Arx'talokukk is a particularly tempermental fire elemental. He'll demand a test of some sorts."

"Neat, so why don't you do it?" The dude is huge, he can probably handle himself.

The big gnoll shrugs, "It's far away, and there are adventurers hunting for gnolls. Something tells me a little goblin and her small party would have a better chance of getting there."

He ain't telling the whole truth. But it might not really matter. The food is all gone now, too.

"Okay, I'll go see this fire elemental guy and see what's up with all this business, alright?" The dog man's face splits into a savage grin.

"Excellent! I'll be eager to see you return." You try to start up some more small talk with him, but they are all met with short disinterested phrases until the atmosphere gets really awkward. Talk about a single minded guy. You do manage to get directions to the elemental.

You excuse yourself with great difficulty and head outside the smoky tent. Your eyes are still watering. The first thing you see is Allonces attempting to apply lipstick to a gnoll. Others are watching with great interest. Do these things even have lips you aren't really sure. You barely have any lips. Mostly just fangs.

No one seems surprised when you tell them that you've agreed to go impress a fire elemental to get a sigil to make dog people like one dog person more than Bailey. Not much later you get some supplies from the gnoll camp as blessings for your journey and head out.

You tell Gneb the directions you were given, and he says he'll do his best!

Surprisingly, you end up wandering around for a few horus before promptly stumbling upon blasted plains. Scorch marks mar the land in several, scattered directions in a seemingly random pattern. You're not sure what made these JUST KIDDING obviously it was the fire elemental. What else could it be?

"Alright, good job boys, this seems like the right spot. So now we just gotta find out where Axetalkox is at, and we can get this whole thing over with." You look around at your assembled members of the party. "So, how do you think we do that." Blank expressions all around. "Mani...?"

"What, just cause I got red hair means I know how to summon a damn fire elemental?"

Allonces loudly whispers to Xab, "I was thinking the same thing as Shax, to be honest." Xab nods and looks at Allonces with great interest in her thoughts. All the boys act weird around her.

"Well, we got no option but to wander further! Forward!" You wave the boys onward. There isn't much going on up here, to be honest. You see a bunch of charred trees and plants and what looks like bones. Wait, bones? Huge bones. All over the place suddenly. You turn to the clay golems. "Sooo, got any ideas what this is about."

They don't even turn to look at you. This guy needs to pay attention at the right times, and also be less loud. Maybe Whoop would have an idea of what to do here?

After wandering around the ashen wastes for what feels like hours (it was only fifteen minutes according to your watch), everyone starts grumbling. You better start doing some thinking, and fast!

You put your mind to work. Bones. What is the point of these bones? And clearly this place has been hit with great gouts of flame somewhere along the way. There isn't really an epicenter to these blast marks, and you are pretty sure they have happened at different times, so you don't think it is one large explosion. So whatever has marred the ground here happens at different times. So following that logic, if you could find what triggers the appearance of the fire eleme-

{Hello, what are you doing here on my chosen ground, goblin?} A small vaguely humanoid shape of fire shifts wildly off to the side as it approaches you. {Choose your answer carefully!}

You feel so relieved that you don't have to think any longer that you spill the beans. "Hey, I'm here to impress you and get a sigil so I can stop some dude named Bailey's ascension."

{Ascension? I doubt very much that anyone is close to doing that.}

"What is an ascension anyway?"

{You sort of ascend beyond mortality and becoming a living force of nature.}

"Oh, that sounds neat."

{It basically is.}

"So, I don't want him to ascend cause he would cause a whole lot of ruckus."

{I like ruckuses.}

"Me too, but not right now. It'll make my job way harder if he doesn't cause less of one."

{Oh, what is your job?}

"I'm a raid leader."

{What are you raiding.}

"Oh, this and that."

{Oh.}

"But if it goes well, the people I work for will cause a huuuuge ruckus."

{Ah, that sounds nice.}

"Yeah." You sort of ran out of things to say. You shift uncomfortably on your mount.

{So, um. You want to take my trial?}

"Sure. What is it?" You swear, if the elemental tells you to go and fetch something you will LOSE your MIND.

>> No.30156730

{It isn't complicated, I summon a beast from the elemental plane of fire, you prove your mastery over it, and then you get my favor. No one is allowed to help you.}

You think about your cape. Isn't it like cheating here? "I readily agree to the test."

{Oh, you don't want to, like, talk about it a little?}

"Nope."

The flames flicker a bit. {Okay. Let me summon the beast I guess.}

With a roar of flame, a huge arcane gate appears. You feel a surge of magical energy in the air and a roar is heard. From the gate, two bronze skinned dwarves whose heads are on fire appear with a beast between them. A large, snake like crimson monster writhes between chains that they carry. "Hey, Mani..."

"No, I don't fucking know them."

With a shout the beast breaks free and writes towards the fire elemental who is now yelling something in an unintelligable language. The dudes who heads are on fire duck back into the gate, and the serpent turns towards you and lets out another ear splitting howl. You'd rather not risk the mount, so you dismount casually.

Alright. You're ready. You have trained every morning for this! Leveling your sword in a wicked cool grip, you begin dashing at the snake monster. You start working yourself into a good spin, even though you're a little dizzy. The air wooshes around your head and... you trip up over a bone and roll along the ground most of the way there.

You hear various 'oohs' and 'ouch' sounds as you bounces along the ground. You accidentally drop your sword. Jeez, that hurt! You stand up and rub your head for a moment before something slams into you. The snakes tail bats you roughly aside, and you go tumbling a bit further.

This is just the worst! You put one hand on your bruised side and look around for your sword. You think you see it...

You try to dash for it! The snake rears back and sucks in a breath. A second later a torrent of flame gushes out of his mouth as you run to the sword. You get enveloped in the flames, sure to be burnt into a crisp...

>BAD END. YOU HAVE BEEN IMMOLATED DURING THE TRIAL OF AXE TALK WHATEVER. THE DARK ELVEN INVASION LAUNCHED TO A READY FORCE AND WAS CRUSHED MERCILESSLY. BEYTO NEVER FOUND TRUE LOVE. SQUID FACE HOPPED ONTO A MAGIC POWERED PLANE HOPPING SHIP AND ENSLAVED COUNTLESS SPECIES WITHOUT YOUR GUIDANCE.

Oh wait, no you didn't. You've got this cheating cloak! The fire is harmless and you run through it no problem. You manage to grab the sword, a bit worse for wear.

Allonces turns to Gneb. "Wow, I've never seen her fight before. Is she really your boss?" That colossal jerk! You'll show her. You grit your teeth and grip your sword really tight. Anyone can stumble! It was a simple accident! Who wouldn't be able to see that! Also she isn't really that great either!

Standing up, you look at the serpent. It seems to be sniffing the air, confused at the lack of burnt goblin flesh. You are closer now, and less likely to trip. Also you're watching the ground real hard this time, cause there are bones sticking out everywhere, APPARENTLY.

You feel like this momentum is going to be good. You start careening towards the snake monster, and as you are spinning you see it try to move out of the way. It doesn't do it any good as you crash firmly into the beast with a sickening crunch. The scales on the side buckle. You whip out your dagger with a free hand and immediately start prying the scales off. The beast is still reeling for your hit with an ear splitting shriek by the time you finish prying off a good open spot. With a grunt, you pull your sword free. You teeter on your legs for a bit as you bring the sword up above your head. You give a good solid attempt at a warcry as you bring it down, cutting clean through the serpent.

It writhes a bit before crashing to the ground.

{Wow, uh. I don't know if I should count that since you're apparently immune to fire?}

"Just count it."

{Okay.}

Let's go one at a time but give us some time to discuss first.

We bought Sneaky Tech last time, right? I think we should go for Everything Has A Weak Point since it unlocks Back Stab.

For our sword skills I'm thinking Snapping Turtle and Megaton Sky Hammer.

Dat's Our Boss or Stray Cat works for social. I just want to clear the requisites for Dark Queen.

We can get some idea of what we want out as a mass, though for final choosing doing it one at a time makes things less chaotic.

For our BtB I think we should get "Dat's our boss!", it can lead to DGoV, and I think we're going to be doing bigger raids soon.

For MSiF I'd go for ADoBT, just in case we get up against something that shoots laser beams. And Sky Hammer to chop stuff up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Bein' da Boss
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#Natural Likeability - Whether it is pity, affection, or curiosity, people just seem to like you. Bonus to all diplomatic relations.

#Alignment: Evil Good - You are that sweet spot of evil enough to be a good apprentice to a truly evil guy, and good enough to make paladins want to redeem you. Natural diplomacy bonus to people on the extreme ends of a linear morality.

* Dark Goddess of Victory! Your very presence inspires your troops to greater heights of power! Your foes tremble before your might and your allies sing songs of your glory! ...At least that is what you tell yourself when you feel bad and lonely, or scared by the number of enemies you're facing. You get bonus stats equal to the number of people you're in combat with, allies included! - Requires Dat's Our Boss!

* Moonlight Champion. Like a beam in the darkness! When things get bad, REAL bad, people turn to you for help. And you can handle it. Your troops maintain a high morale despite overwhelming odds. In addition, enemies whose spirits are completely crushed may find you inspiring...

* Like a Stray Cat - For some reason people want to take care of you, even if you have no real skills or use. Natural diplomacy bonus to matronly and lonely nice guy characters.

* Dat's our boss! - Your very presence grants a morale bonus to the abilities of your loyal minions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My Sword is Fight
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#Spin to Win - You can whip up a good spinning dash move to really slam into someone. Requires some space and a head start.

* MEGATON SKY HAMMER - Ultimate Punishment Attack! My ancestors call out to me with greivous voices, a dirge whose command is to defeat you!

It's just a jump slash.

#Wary Tortoise Stance - Since your sword is as big as you are, it is a pretty good shield, too! You become adept at spinning it into place to shield your body.

* Bite of the Snapping Turtle - From the Wary Tortoise stance, you can change your defensive spin into a deadly poke! For some reason it hits really hard, but you're not sure why.

* Absolute Defense of the Box Turtle - You slam the tip of the sword into the ground to form a barrier between you and the enemy. Good for stopping super attacks!

* Tokka Form! - While in the Wary Tortoise Stance, you can lash out with one arm. You won't be able to make a precise strike, but you might be able to land some blows in a crowded environment! - Requires Monkey Grip.


* Monkey Grip - Why does this feat exist? Haha! Time for one handed attacks!

* Everything Has a Weak Point - You learn how to work your dagger better! You can get some shivving in on top of your slamming and swinging.

* Really Eat Anything - You have a cast iron stomach and become immune to most poisons and diseases that would occur from ingesting something.

First, can we all agree on Dat's Our Boss? It's just all around good.

Second, I think we should work towards Rahzar's Wild Ride. Getting a top tier ability quick spells nothing but good stuff for us. So I'm in favour of anything that helps advance us towards it.

Third, Back"stab" seems handy, so how about Everything Has a Weak Point?

You get MONKEY GRIP! I'll give you the cliffs notes version of the other skills:

Improved improvised dual wield lets you use your sword in addition to natural terrain (for example those giant bones) to start totally wailing on dudes.

Rahzar's wild ride takes two skill points and makes you highly mobile, using your sword as a shield, and your offhand as a primary form of attack as you dash between various enemies slapping them silly.

Alright, well. It is very late for me, and I really need to get some sleep!

I'll do my homework and write out a ridiculous amount of skill descriptions after I foolishly had all the skill trees level up at once.

I wanted to give you guys another game point tonight, but I'm plum tuckered out. I might try to get some stuff going on at the start of next thread!

Anyway! Thank you for playing, as always! You guys are great, and easy to get along with. Seriously. And thanks to all the readers who won't get to play but see this in the archive! You make it easier for me to run at any time by showing up if the usual crowd can't. Thank you!
