This is a multiplayer game where each player controls one character. It's very easy to join, even if you haven't participated in the previous threads.

Kek, the ancient Egyptian god of chaos, has made of a pact with the meme magicians of 4chan: when members of 4chan die, they are teleported to an Isekai. In that fantasy world, Kek has formed an Adventurer's Guild for you to have a job in your new life. Your goal is to rise through the ranks -- working for Kek certainly will earn you great rewards!

You are going to play as yourself, the person behind the screen. The question is: how long would you survive in an RPG setting?

*Stats (see below)
*Skills: all skills, talents, combat skills, magical powers, languages

*Background
*Inventory

Attached is a blank character sheet.
>>
MODE OF THOUGHTS (can have more than one)
*Visual: you think with images
*Verbal: you think with words/voice
*Emotional: you think with emotions
*Abstract: your thoughts are abstract

Describe your stats in plain English using the ranks below.
Ranks: minuscule, weak, low, below average, average, above average, high, exceptional
For Stats, an “average” rank means the rank of an average person
For skills and other abilities, an “average” rank means an average person skilled with this ability; an average professional. Those with less than average ranks are skilled amateurs. Yes, this means, above average skills are uncommon.

The skills are freeform so you can list anything. Here's an extensive list if you need inspiration: https://gurps.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_Skills

CREATION RULES
1) Create your character, following the rules above.
2) Reminder: you are playing as yourself, the person behind the screen. The more honest you are statting yourself, the more fun this is going to be.
3) Reminder: for skills, an average rank means the rank of an average professional, not the average person. If you rank yourself as Average, then it means that you're as good as the average professional.

GENERAL RULES
1) Namefag yourself.
2) Roll 20d100 with each post. The rolls will be used for the GM emulator.
3) You have to keep track of your own inventory and money.
4) No whining about the QM decisions and rolls.

MULTIPLAYER RULES
1) You can chat with the other players as much as you want.
2) Don't make more than one action post before the QM responds.

ISEKAI RULES
1) E-Rank Chaos: When there's an appropriate skill, the player's first three rolls are reserved to Skill checks and will determine the result of the player's main actions. With 3 free passes per thread for the QM for the purpose of plot and chaos.
2) Rule of Blood: If too many players join, I will add a penalty to all dangerous rolls until a few players die.

Anchor post: I'll quote this post with the updates

INTRODUCTION
You wake up in a dim lit, spacious Egyptian temple with ornamented pillars. On a cyclopean throne sits a frog monstrosity, its fat flesh hanging on the floor. It speaks to you with a cavernous voice:

"You've died." It laughs. "I'm Kek, god of chaos. No introductions needed, I hope. As you were a member of the 4chan community, you get to resurrect in a new, magical world. That's the pact I've made with your remote viewers and meme magicians."

He pauses, expecting you to die of a second heart attack. But the smell of incense burning in the room has made you a bit high and rather apathetic.

"Not bad, you've survived my frightful presence. YOU ARE QUIET, I CAN'T HEAR YOU. I'm bored. Let's get over with it and choose your new profession."

Information floods into your minds as a series of options appears before you. The first seems to be a series of classic archetypes and the second, a numbered list of short titles for something you can't help but wonder.

CLASSES:
>Warrior - A mundane master of martial combat, you are considered to have Average skill in every weapon and armor you choose to wield.
> Thief - An accomplished savant of subterfuge and guile, you receive a boost to your Agility and Dexterity (+ point-based skills).
> Sorcerer - A magic user tapping into your own mind, you may attempt to visualise spells and cast them in accordance to your imagination. Sorcery is fickle and often backfires or works in unexpected ways.
> Priest - A champion of a deity of your choice, you may invoke them to lend you miraculous aid from above or below. Your deity doesn’t always answer and members of rival religions shall hate or shun you.
> Kek's Choice - If you want to live dangerously, you can let Kek decide your class for you. This might unlock rare, prestige classes.

More knowledge enters your psyche, and the potential options are revealed to you. You may choose a class, guaranteed to grant great power and eventually supernatural competency in its specialty and roll a single d50 on the Isekai cheat chart for a boon ranging from mediocre to gamebreaking. You can also decide not to take a class and roll dual d50s on the Isekai cheat chart. Alternatively, if you are a true badass, you can refuse to take any class or cheat power, and make you accomplishments that much more impressive.

Q: Rolling for Wade's class
Rolls: 65, 43
A: Attach of Competition
He's attaching himself to competition, making it his life: a gladiator

Q: Rolling for Mark's class
Rolls: 8, 84
A: Oppose of Status quo
He opposed the status quo of the reversed society: a clown
See: The Metaphysics of Clown World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzEwaUCw9Bo


>>4325273
"Excellent choice!" Kek says. "Technically, everything is my choice. But let's ignore this fact for an instant. Your face is vaguely familiar..."

He thinks for a moment.

"But that can be. Only people who have died on Earth come here, and you can only die once, right?"

Kek spins a gigantic wheel, and it stops on the picture of a small gladius. You feel that your reflexes and instincts are modified, even your very nature.

Gladiator (class): You are considered to have Average skill in traditional gladiator weapons (gladius, harpoon, etc.). If a crowd is watching you and cheering on you, your rank increases to High.

Creepy (cheat): You are creepy. You are powered by corrupted, deviant energies. You revel in rape, cannibalism, and anything viewed as creepy by normies. The more you creep out, gross out and offend others, the more powerful buffs you gain. If your party doesn't hate you, then you are doing something wrong. Unlock great bonuses if you make another player quit.

"I'm glad you came. I have summoned my favorite adventurers to form a new elite squad. This person here" (he points to Wade) " is a newfag, so make sure to take care of him."

Kek spins the wheel again, and it stops on a small picture of Clown Pepe. The Dark God throws you a small, multicolored pill.

"This is the clown pill."

You swallow it. For no reason at all, you begin laughing. The situation is absurd. You gain a new perception, that the world is fake and ridiculous, not to be taken seriously. This perception makes you feel that you are thus able to manipulate reality by amplifying its ridiculousness and making a mockery of it. Your level of lucidity is far beyond the mere mortal.

Clown (class): You have mastered Clown World and found a weakness in the fabric of reality. You can use illusion magic and you are considered to have Average Acrobatic skills. You are immune to fear.

Honkler (cheat): You gain various situational bonuses for posting funny, ridiculous, outrageous or otherwise clown-related art (memes, poems, jokes...) If you use the 4chan's painter, you can use magic as depicted in your drawing, but only if the QM can guess what your drawing represents (you are not allowed to tell), and if it is clown related. You also have a special talent for driving your opponents crazy when you mock them.
You are still in possession of your past bonuses and inventory.

Tathagata Store (stat): Minuscule
Blessing of Chaos (strength): You receive a +1 RS bonus when you attempt a chaotic action.

>Inventory
1 gold
Winter Clothes (Worn)
Leather Quiver: (24 Steel Arrows)
Exceptional Longbow
Trick Fears, Artifact Masterwork Bastard Sword
Exceptional Steel Longsword

Kek raises his hand and a flow of dark energy enters your body. "You are now a sorcerer. When you want to cast a spell, all you have to do is picture an image of the spell in your mind. This technique is called: visualization."

With the sorcerer class, yes, you can cast any spell that you can think of, except healing and divination which are restricted to the priest class.

Cosmic Vending Machine (cheat): You and only you can access a cosmic vending machine that can take any object or currency and exchange it for a random item exactly identical in value. The item is summoned from across the multiverse and impossible to predict.

>reaches for kidney, feels the absence of a bruise before half-real, half-false memories fade away
"I... Enough. What's passed is past, whatever that was, and now I need to look toward the present."
>stare at the wheel, watch it stop spinning, and come to terms with sudden rush of knowledge in the use of nets, tridents, gladius, and more, all adhering to the common theme of what could be found in the pitched heat of a colosseum
>along with it burns a sudden need for attention, not to satisfy my own ego but to entertain the masses, and hear them shout for blood as I bury my blade to the hilt in man and monstrosity alike
>there can be no doubt
"I am a Gladiator, as reckless as I am relentless on the battlefield, as much a proud entertainer as a precise warrior. A middle ground between the Fighter and Bardic archetypes that suits me well."
>the Gladiator's spark is not alone, for in its wake burns a cold flame that seeps into my soul and would leave it shuddering in revulsion, were it not for the Frog God's memetic magick or my miswired brain's seeming inability to register esoteric sensations, likely both
>the absence of a feeling that should be there is unsettling and it sinks in that the invocation and feeding on that feeling is my boon
"I'm Creepy and gain strength from the disgust and terror of others. There is a fell and terrible synergy with the Gladiator's class, and I intend to take full advantage within the bounds of my personal code. Bodily trophies are always in fashion. AHAHAHAHAHA! KEK! You big, beautiful bastard! If you want me to put on a show I'll damned well put on a show, just point me to the stage and I'll play the game to your chaotic heart's content!"

Isekai Cheats
Harem Protag: You now have a sex appeal that defies logic, giving an *absolute* bonus to seduction attempts and compelling members of the opposite sex to get jiggy with it, to the extent that you must roll to determine whether they are willing to engage in coitus, not whether they are interested. They are always open to polygamy but members of the same sex will resent you. Some violently.

Edgelord: You can teleport behind your foes, summon dual desert eagles/uzis at your discretion, and drain life force to regenerate or fuel your attacks when you cut someone. You can also cut yourself and reabsorb it at an equal ratio. Forbidden sorcery comes twice as easily and malign entities see you as their equivalent and take you seriously, for good or ill. This comes at the cost of a gravelly voice, deep dislike of daylight, and the permanent fixation to wear a trenchcoat and dark-tinted sunglasses, which you can summon at will. If your dialogue is sufficiently edgy, you may receive a bonus to any given roll. (Part 1)

Kek points to a portal of dark energy on the side of the room, guarded by two spear-holding frogmen. The prismatic colors of the portal are hypnotic. The ambient light provides a pristine, dreamlike atmosphere to the room.

"This portal will lead you to a random location of the map. Even I don't know where the portal will take you. Your job is to find your way to the Adventurer's Guild and take all of the most difficult quests. You will be rewarded with magical items."

The image of the Joker forms faintly in the center of the room.

Q: How does Wade gain strength?
Roll: 8, 10
A: Oppose of Good
Protection from Good/Chaos

The Frog God makes a disgusted face.

"Bodily trophies? You are pushing it, that's really creepy."

As Kek is creeped out, you feel a rush of energy inside your body. You actually gained strength from his own disgust. Of course, the chaos god shouldn't feel disgust just from that, but his own chaotic energy amplifies everything.

"The portal uses demiurgic technology," Kek explains. "It can take a person between two points of space, or to a safe or unsafe matrix. The difference between a safe and unsafe matrix is that you risk losing your memories when inside of an unsafe matrix, and get trapped inside. Your homeworld, Earth, is an unsafe matrix, that is why you were reincarnated with no memories."

Mark tries out his new clown abilities and does a cartwheel toward the portal. His agility and balance are flawless, and is cartwheel is that of a professional. He rolls toward the portal and finds himself in a dark environment. He cannot see where he has arrived, but he can feel a cold, stone wall in front of him.

>>4326326
The multidimensional hero Shi appears in Kek's temple, with the priestess-thief Miyashita Emiya on his side. Emiya is a native of the Isekai world who fell in love with Shi's wits, edgy attitude and beauty. Shi grabs her hand, a protective, instintictive move. He says:

"You drag me across the multiverse only to entertain, your despicable". He cracks a smile and says "But if you need someone to crack some heads then I'm your man".

Kek laughs.

"Oh, you are so funny, I understand why Ms. Miyashita is so fond of you."

The priestess blushes.

"Shi is the best at everything; this is the objective truth. I think myself blessed that Evylion has put him on my path and I thank you humbly for bringing us together to your sanctuary."

Shi and Emiya walk through the portal.

"Hikari!" Emiya says with her beautiful, musical voice. She raises her finger and a gentle, blue light comes out of her finger. They are inside of a stone-walled tunnel, with two doors on each side.

>>4326461
Marcel, a new adventurer, appears in Kek's temple. He chooses to spin the wheel, which stops on a small picture of a man sitting in the lotus position.

"Wonderful! You are now a yogi. If you concentrate and empty your mind, you can use the Ki Blast technique and destroy your opponents with your inner energy."

Marcel feels more calm, his thoughts are more focused. He feels as if he was in a dream, see his environment for the dream that it is, an illusion.

Yogi (class): You are a meditative martial artist; you are considered to have Average skills in martial arts and receive a +2 bonus to Willpower. You can also use the Ki Blast power and dispel illusions and demons.

A E S T H E T I C (cheat): You somehow manage to make everything you do look exponentially cooler than it actually is. If you are stumbling with a sword it will look badass, if you know what you’re doing it will look beyond divine. This yields a massive bonus to convincing others, intimidation, and building a reputation whether it's positive or negative.

>Marcel's Willpower is increased to Incredible

>>4326580
The seasoned veteran Dante appears. He, too, daringly choose to spin the wheel, which stops on the small image of a person with an oversized, crusader helmet.

"Oh..." Kek says, with a hint of fear in his voice. "You are now an inquisitor. This brings back memories. The Inquisitors of 2channel have persecuted me in the past when I was trying to start a cult in Japan."

Kek concentrates.

"An inquisitor is a champion of his deity, a fierce crusader and priest who mercilessly persecutes all of his enemies. I see that you are an atheist. You are then by default considered to worship Atheus, the god of materialist. But if you want to worship another deity, you can make your choice now."

Inquisitor (class): A mix of warrior and priest, you are considered to have Average skills in every weapon and armor, and can also cast priestly spells with a -2 RS penalty. You can choose one favorite enemy once your deity has been selected.

PvP God (cheat): When fighting other players, you gain initiative, when reasonable, and a bonus to attack rolls. Roll 1d3 to determine the bonus.

Houston died in the previous thread, in Pelzer SC, where he was thrown in a dark basement, locked with the cadaver of a pregnant woman, and lost his sanity. Like all members of the Kek Foundation, he gets to be revived in Kek's temple and get a chance at living a new life in the Isekai.

Very daringly, Houston spins Kek's wheel twice... He is teleported to a small room outside of time, with only a TV, where he is forced to watch all the episodes of the anime "Goblin Slayer" repeatedly. He learns all about their behavior and their nests.

After-Effect (cheat): You can bring your timelines together if you focus, allowing you to attack more than once in a single swing, simultaneously from different angles, or even summon an almost-identical duplicate that defers to your judgement. You are also immune to time control and the threat of paradoxes.

Goblin Slayer (cheat): You gain all the knowledge seen in the Goblin Slayer anime. This gives you a +3 RS bonus to attacks against goblins, and a rank of Superhuman in the skill Knowledge(goblin).

>>4326777
All illusion of the defeated hero The Last Defender appears, before his soul travels to his own Isekai world. He speaks in length of his enemies and Wade takes an interest in it. Kek summons a computer for him so that he can access the archives of 4chan. Wade discovers a far-reaching conspiracy involving a flaking QM, a reality-bending quest, and the highest spheres of authority.

>Holy Trips of Kek: For the duration of this thread, Wade can choose to gain a +1 RS bonus to one action. He must announce it in the same post as his action. He must be careful to not waste this precious blessing, ask Houston for more information >>4326773.

Squiddly appears next to Houston. He doesn't remember exactly how he died, but the god Kek explains that he has died and that is why he is in the temple. Is his death related to the demon who was following him?

"Priest of Kek! A most excellent choice!" the god says. "I'm very reliable as a patron god and I will grant you awesome spells."

He pauses.

"When I'm not busy with something else."

The wheel spins and stops on a picture of a small woman in a dark robe.

Priest of Kek (class): You can cast spells related to healing, blessing, and Kek's attributes in general.

Cursed Sage (cheat): You gain the powers called "Dark Heal", "Destroy" and "Death Roulette". Their effect is unknown.

>>4327303
>>4327217
Marcel has a philisophical inner crisis, as part of the adaptation and transformation that is necessary to become a yogi. He walks through Kek's portal, which he notices to be an allegory for the Cosmic Mirror and his transformation journey.

The gladiator Wade follows him. A bit too close, maybe. He seems vaguely creepy.

>>4327162
「Honkler」 A red nose appears on Mark's nose, and two gutters appear, carved on both sides of the floor. The clown blows on his hand as if it was a torch, and flames form in the air and are blown toward the gutters. Flames quickly spread along the gutters, illuminating the entire tunnel. Such is the majestic power of the clown; the clown illuminates what is dark.

>>4327263
Shi tries to cast Shadowy Chainmail, but the spell fizzles. That is a recurrent problem with his sorcery, hence why he has taken the wizard subclass, which he has found to use more reliable magic.

「Strange Aeons」 He then grows his new alien appendages from his upper back. Two slimy tentacles form and stretch above the shoulder and in front of him, as if animated by a life of their own. Emiya turns her head toward her beloved and squeals.

"Eeeeeek! Shokushu!!!"

She puts her hand in front of her mouth to hide her disgust.

"Shi! What is that!"

I know that Shi is a pervert, but I didn't expect this... she thinks to herself.

Shi walks toward one of the doors, holding his desert eagle. But the door opens before he can reach it. An old man, with a long beard and dressed in grey robes, enters. He smiles and introduces himself.

"Greetings, everyone. I am Igorim the Mage, what are you doing in my basement?"

I'm not TLD dude. It makes for a good story, but sadly most good stories are made up. If the first part of your post was a joke my bad, I wasn't sure if it was or not.
>>
>>4328552
I have to warn you, I'm dangerously retarded and wasn't exaggerating the Minuscule Wisdom score, but it'd be easy to pretend I was being sarcastic. You're genuinely pretty based though, as far as the conventional definition goes if not further; not caring about society's norms as a whole/rejecting broader perception for your own principles, whatever they are. I think the operation has to do with mass-downvoting the Isekai quest's archives, which as easy to sidestep as keeping links to past threads in archive.moe in pastebin, being that TLD's group wouldn't be able to spam /qst/ assuming the theory that QM Wuxian is a moderator himself, as opposed to simply reporting the off-topic meta-discussion, which is generally seen as Bad™ across the site outside of /qa/. I'm not sure what to make of it, I just hope the controversy doesn't kill the quest because I've been looking forward to it since posting.
>>
>>4328572
I think the project is a video or collection of images showing the wrong doings of Wuxian. Spam down voting isn't really a project and I'm pretty sure they have already being doing it. I hope the quest itself isn't affected as well, since I enjoy playing it with you guys.
>>
>>4328582
>>4328572
We’ll just have to wait and see what Wuxian will do. I too hope that this quest keeps on going because I was really excited about it
>>
>>4328582
You're probably right, I think a collection of image macros is the most likely response. QM Wuxian may have flaked in the past but most are guilty of the same and there's no shame in trying to do better. Like I said earlier, I doubt they're a moderator since I've seen quests get wiped of meta-controversy like this before and I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, allegations of shitpost impersonations aside. I wouldn't worry about the survival of the quest, this'll probably blow over in a few days.

This is an unrelated question, but is there any reason you went for the Wizard class? Also, are the previous Harem Protag/Edgelord cheats still active, or are you just rolling with Strange Aeons and the still head-over-heels priestess waifu + a pair of gold-plated desert eagles? I was a little confused by the sheet and your subsequent posts.

「Honkler」 Mark recites a cryptical riddle to the mage and activates more of his Honkler power. He suddenly and instinctively feels that he's immune to any vermin that could potentially squat his pants, be they lice, frogs or more common STDs.

Mark pushes the mage on the side, deftly climbs a flight of stairs, and enters what seems to be the mage's living room. It's soberly decorated, with a white statue of Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt and innocence, and the head of a deer above the chimney. Magical devices emit a blue energy that the clown feels to be soothing, if not healing. There's also a panel on the wall with various levers and settings written in runes that he cannot read.

With assured gestures, Shi casts his favorite spell, Charm Person. Pink energy flows from the tip of his fingers and enters the orifices of the mage. His facial expression changes subtly, becoming more relaxed as he becomes more receptive to suggestions.

Shi enquires about spells and the guild.

"Oh, yes, I'm experienced, but spells proper are only used by the highest level wizards of the Adventurer's Guild and the Sorcerer's Guild, and I have no claim to such fame. I am a mage of nature, I produce potions and balms, and bring peace to the creatures of nature. This moving castlet can travel between the city and the wilderness depending on my needs."

Shi can tell the the mage is not lying. Through one of the windows, he can see that they are in an arid wasteland.

"If I drive to the north, we should reach Visea in about an hour or two, where you will find a Guild for certain. I was here at the frontier of the empire to heal the animals who have been hurt by the orcs."

>>4327526
Squiddly speaks in a very friendly manner.

“Oh, a fellow researcher of the arcane, how lovely. Please forgive us, it appears that our lord and savior Kek has sent us here through the device Shi here talked about. "

"You are a worshipper of Kek! That should have been obvious. That a party of heteroclite adventurers appear in my basement, that could only mean they are members of Kek's Adventurer's Guild. Tell me, what do you know about the arcane? I would love to discuss the subject with you. Also, the young master's name is Shi? What else do you know about him?"

For some reason, he seems fascinated with Shi.

>>4327533
Wade cracks a psychotic smirk.

"Salutations Igorim, You wouldn't happen to have a monster infestation or bandit gang you'd like to get rid of for cheap, would you?"

"I wish no harms to monsters or bandits! We are all Artemis' children, in our own way. Monsters and bandits are named as such only because they do not fit the norms of human society, but all they want is to leave in peace. They might kill to survive, but so does all natural life. It's a cycle of predator and prey, no one can fight it. The elves might dillusion themselves into believing that they are beyond the cycle by refusing to eat meat, but they are no better than others. As a woosdman, I think you should understand."

In one quest I rolled for 2 cheats in the next cheats weren't a usable thing so I got to get a class and subclass after asking for it from a god. I rerolled those cheats here and got Edgelord and Syrange Aeons. I picked the wizard class because I have higher int than will.
>>
>>4328592
Shi has a class + 2 cheats. He has one more cheat than everyone else because he's gained the class from joining Loki's Familia whereas the cheats are obtained from Kek.
>>
>>4328881
For the same reason Emiya has two classes. She was a priestess naturally and she's gained the thief class from Loki's Familia.

"Hahaha. You seem to be an upstanding sort mage, it's not often I hear of a magic user venerating Artemis, though I must admit I'm more partial to Aristaeus. You say if you drive? I don't intend to pry, but does that mean you have a vehicle of some sort of stashed here? Where are we, by the by? I haven't seen the outside and can't quite triangulate. I appear to have lost my gear during the transit and need to replace it at the earliest possible opportunity. Difficult to go adventuring as is, but where there's people there's unskilled labour to be done, and I might be able to eke out a pittance."

>>4328850
Mark asks about the deer.

"It doesn't do anything. This is the head of a noble stag, as a representation of the predator and prey cycle of the world, a beautiful memento memori. I like to look at it to be reminded of my status. As a magician, sometimes, I feel overpowered, but I'm no fool, I know that I'm not a god."

>>4328894
Wade asks about the vehicle.

"Do I have a vehicle? Yes, of course. You are actually alraedy inside of the vehicle. This is a moving castlet that can travel overland. Let me show you." the mage says.

He walks toward the lever panel and pulls one of the levers. The floor trembles, and the party can hear the collision of the footsteps of a moving goliath beneath them. Wade notices through the window that they are indeed moving.

"You don't know where you are, do you? I understand, you were teleported inside of the basement. We are on the southern frontier of the Empire of Tyria. The city of Visea is to the north, and to the south is the Wasteland, ruled by the orcs."

「Memory」Mark remembers that Devapura, the city of the Gods, was too located to the south of the Empire of Tyria. That means Kek's portal didn't bring him very far from his last location.

The timelines might be confusing, but the Grimdark setting in a separate timeline, in the future of the Isekai, so it will not be considered canonical.

Wade explains that he has lost his possessions.

"As a gladiator, it should be easy to earn some easy money. I can tell that you're a great fighter, your body is solid and only bears one scar on the side of your head."
>>
>>4329431

>>4328997
Shi asks about spells scrolls and magic books.

(The mage had already stated previously that he doesn't have scrolls)

"Grimoires are very rare. I only have a book about basic spells that are used for teaching, but nothing advanced. Sorcerers always make their own spells depending on the situation and their own imagination. A sorcerer that lacks imagination would make a poor sorcerer. I do not think a beginner book would interest you, would it?"

>>4329039
Squiddly says that Shi is stupidly powerful.

The wizard nods.

"I can feel that young master Shi is very powerful. He emits a strong aura of magic that any sorcerer could perceive. Perhaps it is the strongest aura I've felt."

Squiddly asks questions about orcs and plants.

"The orcs are here because they are in a perpetual war against humans, so they always live on the edge of civilization. They haven't developed the ability to farm -- or they don't want to, I don't know which it is. Regardless, they only live from raiding humans, elves and beastmen. They are the ultimate predators."

He tells Squiddly to follow him to an adjacent room. This is a wonderful, romantic greenhouse, a delightful indoor garden with many varieties of trees and flowers and a fountain. It seems to be partly automated, as Squiddly can spot metallic tubes which he assumes to be for watering the plants, and he can hear the distinctive rattle of gears. It's a very tranquil place, that brings peace to his mind, and makes him forget the horrors of Pelzer.

***

They speak with the mage for about an hour. The landscape becomes more green and pastural, until they reach the city. The first thing that they see is a zeppelin flying in the sky! The city is walled with bricks, and the buildings that they can see seem dirty: it gives a strange impression of a mix of medieval and Victorian architecture. Black smoke comes out of a gigantic factory chimney, and they can smell the faint odor of sulfur. Igorim explains that this is Visea, a city ruled by alchemists, merchants and slavers. A very dangerous place but still much less dangerous than the Wasteland. For Squiddly, this is the first Isekai city that he has ever seen. Igorum pulls a lever, and the castlet stops moving.

>not terrible but not great either, if the Wasteland is similar don't want to relive the experience, or run afoul of the orcs ruling it, though as Igorim mentioned vegetarian elves and we've been Isekai'd, that implies cliches are in play and pig-orcs are likely, know firsthand that hogs are dangerous as hell and likely no less dangerous than green-barbarian orcs or, lady luck stay her bitch hand, tolkienesque industrialist orcs
>that and there's likely magic pollution leftover from whatever made the Wasteland, because they referred to it as the Wasteland and not the Desert, a bad idea all around
>nod to the mage and touch hand to scar on left side of head, faded pink, in the middle space between ear and eye, and goes straight from an inch below the scalp to the middle of the cheek
"Funny thing, the scar's completely unrelated to my gladiatorial career. I got in an accident running into some sharp sheet metal while I was helping a friend herd some cows into a cattle trai- pasture."
>continue listening to the mage, orcs are apparently raiders in a perpetual war against humans, elves, and beastmen, who, if Isekai cliches hold true, are likely humans but with animal ears and tails, which is a bit boring but I remind myself to be thankful I wasn't Isekai'd in my own setting and freezing in ashen snow at this point
>more importantly, the mage confirms that orcs aren't industrialists or at least, not at a large scale, which is reassuring as hell

Update in 2-3 hours

The update is going to take more time today because I'm going to sort the inventories. I couldn't keep track of the inventories before because I was posting from both home and the office. But now with the "epidemics" I work from home so it's easier to make a file.

Hello KTTL. I will add it to the Adventurer's Guild, that's good, it adds to the chaos.

As for writing tips, I'm not the most qualified because I speak English as a second language too. But I feel your grammar has improved overall. Have you been doing a lot of reading?

>tfw Dante, Steve, and Marcel haven't posted in a few days
I hope they didn't drop the quest.


>>4330842
Is there any reason you went with the 100 instead of the 94 for the question about Arenas in the last update? It's not that big of a deal since they'd both likely be Crit Nos, but I didn't realize that crits took precedent.
>>
>>4330912
>Is there any reason you went with the 100 instead of the 94 for the question about Arenas in the last update?
Yes, the reason is Isekai Rule #1. The first three rolls are reserved to the player's main actions, that helps for the players to know if they've rolled good or not.

The question about the arenas is not an action, it's a question for me to generate the environment, so I took the 4th roll.

I do mix up the rolls sometimes though, if it affects your character you can point it out and then I try to fix it on the next turn.

>>4325402
I'm sorting the inventories. It was Shi who had made bagpipes out of Hero William's lungs.

William's Bagpipes:The bagpipes still have a raw, organic look, with a hint of Cthulhu caused by the intervention of chaos magic. To say it more plainly, they look quite disgusting, but they are perfectly functional as a musical instrument.

Wade checks his pockets to make sure that the God of Chaos hasn't slipped any "surprise" in them, but he only has his folding knife and wallet, as expected.

Wade says:

"You're the one with a gun and the only healer we have's crawling all over you, so I'll tow the line."

Incorrect! Squiddly is a priest of Kek, and he also has a healing cheat, which makes him a double healer.

Mark asks Iggie for provisions.

"I think I've helped you enough by bringing you here. Now, you need to fly on your own wings. As experienced adventurers, you do not need to help of an old man such as myself for something as trivial as getting provisions."

Mark asks if the castle is powered by a fire demon. The mage nods his head absent-mindedly.

「Intuition」Mark feels that the mage is nodding to brush away the question, but in fact, he probably does not want to reveal all the secrets of his castle.

>Mark has drawn the picture of a deer, but as it holds no particular clown energy, it has no special effect

>>4330726
Squiddly snaps an orchid from the greenhouse. He closes his eyes and concentrates on his power of Dark Heal, which is part of the Cursed Sage cheat. Dark energy leaves his mouth for a few centimeters, but then goes back inside.

「Intuition」Squiddly "feels" that he doesn't have enough money to properly use his Dark Heal power. He cannot explain much else about this feeling, but he's certain that the activation of the magic doesn't work for as long as he's a poorfag.
>>
>>4331031

>>4329476
[RANDOM EVENT / NPC Positive] Inspired by the freshness of his visitors, Igorim has found the energy to repair the sound system of his castle. When they arrive, he honks his horn to announce their arrival. The sound is similar to the singing of a whale, but deeper and louder.

Shi gets the directions to the guild from Igorim and leads the way to the entrance of the city, with a self-assured footstep, followed by his girlfriend, Emiya, and a girl with dark brown hair who came out of the basement after the castle stopped moving. The mysterious girl doesn't seem too happy. Who is she?! The rest of the party follows behind them. Shi generously pays the entrance fee for everyone, which is only 1 copper coin; a negligible amount for a man of his rank. He throws them one more coin as a tip for their good services.

The Adventurer's Guild is located close to the entrance of the town, to the left. Shi discovers that Visea is not anywhere near as dangerous as Igorim said. No one is hostile to him, and people tend to get out of his way. He kicks the door of the guild open, and checks out the environment, his vision hindered by his sunglasses.

Contrasting with the rest of the town, which is rather advanced on a technological level, the Adventurer's Guild is a wooden building, with a wooden floor and a giant, magical looking, blue-green tree growing in the middle, surrounding by small, floating balls of energy dancing around its trunk. Like all Adventurer's Guild, it has a board where all the open quests are posted, and there are three maids standing behind glass-protected counters, each one having a different hair color; the maid on the left has green hair, the one in the middle pink hair, and the one on the right, yellow hair. A stylized portrait of Pepe the Frog is drawn on the wall behind them, inside of a circle. Overall, the guild gives an impression of good taste, kawaiiness, and positive energy.

>Steve, Marcel, Dante, and Houston will remain in the guild hall or tavern until active.

>>Abigail is an Isekai victim who was enslaved by bandits in the nightmare desert of Wadrima. She knows nothing about Aphrodite, except that she's the Goddess of Love. Hero William freed her from the bandits and they escaped the desert together, but when William was defeated in the Familia War, Shi made her his slave adventurer. He said that she disobeys even once, he'll kill her and use her body to make a revenant who will obey him.

Holy fuck, how based can one man become? If this continues full-frontal, I might be getting a Creepy boon just for associating with the same party. In all seriousness though, can you give me a link to the thread this went down in so I can read it? Sounds like an interesting story.

I was partially bluffing with the secretary, I have no idea if my mostly theoretical understanding of /x/-tier ritualism, warding/contacting entities, and goetic shit transfers to the Isekai setting.

>>4331078
A red nose appears on Mark's face. He squeezes it and an holographic illusion of the prostitute Riley Reid appears in the middle of the guild hall. Her face and body are accurately reproduced in the slightest detail that Mark can remember. A soldier, surprised, tries to cover her up with his cape to protect her modesty, but his arm goes through her. He laughs when he realized that it was not a real person. The illusion remains for as long as Mark concentrated on it in his mind, and disappeared afterward.

>>4331352
Squiddly inspects the glowing tree. He can't really figure out what its purpose is. The closest thing to it in his world would be the elven trees in World of Warcraft. He tries to take one of the floating balls, but they are immaterial and thus impossible to catch.

Shi turns to the brown-haired girl and asks "Who are you?"

For a split second, she frowns with anger, then she looks down. "I'm... Abigail, your slave."

Abigail is a slave that Shi has earned from the Familia War between Kek and Loki, during his stay in Devapura, the City of the Gods. Shi is part of Loki's Familia. The entire Kek Familiar was slaughtered by his team, only Abigail survived and Shi captured her. She's a low-level priestess. Shi dismisses her and goes to the pink-haired girl's counter.

"Bienvenue, messire."

She asks each person of the group to touch a crystal ball, which radiates with some energy when they put their hand on it. It radiates the most when it is Shi who touches it.

"I see that you are all members of Kek's Adventurer's Guild and registered with a Familia. And incredible! You are an A rank, that's pretty rare! You can exchange Kek Points for spell scrolls but I see that you do not have any point currently. To earn Kek Points, you can look at our board for quests that are suitable for your rank."

Wade touches the crystal sphere too.

"I see that you've registered at the Adventurer's Guild of the Malachite Theocracy. You have 3 points which are transferrable to the Kek's Adventurer's Guild, would you like to do so?"

She hands him an ID card with his picture on it.

Wade enquires about work. The girl giggles when Wade enumerates all of his professions.

"That's quite a peculiar document, but we don't need a scribe. You can look at the quests on the quest board, and bring me one that you like."

Wade enquires about free equipment. She goes to the backroom and bring back a rusty short sword.

"We are prepared for this type of situation. You wouldn't believe how often our members lose all of their equipment. You can have this sword, it's worthless."

Wade enquires about eateries. The woman points to an elevated tavern on the side of the guild hall.

"Yes, you should definitely try out the guild tavern, our specialty is the bouchée impériale."

Considering I'm an A rank and have 2 heal sluts, I think I should 2 shares or 40% of the profit. If we were to say give 1 point for each letter 1 being D and 4 being A. Then I and the heal sluts would total up to 8 which is 4 times as much as the average adventurer using wade as a base. In that case, if we give each adventurer a base of 1 share, I would get 4 shares and 57% of the profit with current group numbers, but since I'm so gracious I'll ask for only 2 shares or 40% of the profit.
>>
>>4331985
Mind you, captains of pirate ships would get 2 shares and that's only because of their strategic decision making. I have that, I'm 2 times as strong as the average adventurer, and I have 2 heal sluts, so I think it's only fair that I get at least 2 shares of the profit.

Oh fuck that was one hell of a ride, by the way you were referring to him I thought William was an NPC similar to Abigail but I realized my impression was dead-wrong about five minutes in. Damn, I don't think he deserved any of that, especially considering that he didn't bitch out with the castrating bandits, but you were on opposing sides and I guess that's just how the cookie crumbles.

>>4332185
This reminds me, I overlooked a smorgasbord of skills and weaknesses I should probably include. Nothing too major, but a Fear of Heights, Inability to Swim, and Mathematical Retardation might come up at some point. I'm not exaggerating about the last bit either, I have difficulty doing double-digit addition and subtraction in my head to the point it starts heating up after a dozen or so problems and they're generally incorrect unless I start counting with my fingers and keep track of things with scratch paper. The magic system is centered around imaginative visualization/sheer willpower so I likely won't come up, but barring supernatural empowerment I'm unlikely to be doing much precise engineering. I'm not bad with a crossbow or rifle either, anything in thirty yards I can generally hit a bullseye four out of five times, but beyond that it drops off considerably, probably Below Average, factoring in that a professional can get similar success at fifty or more whereas mine drops off considerably.

11/10, would form a panicked and futile shield wall against. I don't know what it is but for me grimdark in fantasy is like honey on a biscuit, I don't need it to enjoy the shit but fuck if it doesn't make it that much sweeter. The grimdark can be anywhere on the mystical/mundane spectrum, as long as it's there. Maybe it's to balance the /comfy/ from a narrative and mechanical standpoint, resting for a week in a peaceful village means a lot more when the party's seen an orc/undead horde raze/raise them firsthand. You probably know exactly what I'm talking about, thank you for posting, that shit is the witch's titis.
>>
>>4332734
That doesn't account for support roles, so I disagree. I think I should get 2 shares and everyone else gets one share, that seems fair to me.
>>
>>4332903
Let's break it down. If the baseline share is 5%, and there are, hell if I know, five of us? We could break it down like this. Each extra Tier is worth 5% more onto the share, tapering off at 2.5% from Tiers A-B to prevent a single adventurer from monopolizing the lion's share of the income. As a Tier A adventurer, you'd be entitled to a straight 20% but Abigail isn't an independent adventurer, she's technically your property and doesn't have any claim on a baseline share, so what she gets counts as yours, for another 5%, adding up to 25% overall. Emiya is a Tier B adventurer and free, so she gets 17.5%, as per the baseline and her rank, which she can then spend as she will. Altogether that's ludicrous but reasonable, as I'm entitled to a 15% share, I'll forfeit 10% to leave me with the baseline 5% and first dibs on the corpses of any monsters we slay, which seems reasonable, given I have the requisite experience to remove their bodyparts. More important than even shares though is that everyone gets back what they're putting in, at least those are my thoughts on the situation. What do you all think?
>>
>>4332934
That seems fair. I would rather your not mess with corpses and instead help me peform my rituals to summon lovecraften monsters using their dead bodies. I think that would be way creepier than just taking an eye ball or somthing, and this get you a much larger bonus.
>>
>>4332934
Alternatively, we could dump 40% into a party fund that goes toward rations/rent and divvy the rest up on a case-by-case basis depending on how much each individual did on a given quest. It'd be ridiculous to split a reward eight ways when there were only three participants, after all, but then there's the issue of how to determine how "well" a given adventurer did, which is an admittedly vague criteria. Maybe splitting it evenly, not accounting for slaves/followers who receive a half-share or hirelings who get their agreed-upon wage as paid by their employer, outside the party fund would be best? That seems like a logical and reasonable way to go about it.
>>
>>4332943
I do not condone forbidden rituals but generally you need live bodies and extensive, expensive preparations for this sort of serious shit, the more valuable i.e., "innocent" the sacrifice the more the summoner gets out of it though that's not a hard rule. Sapients are almost always worth more than animals but that involves its own problems, and magical power and/or Adventurer's Guild tier is likely another factor to stay conscious of. The sentimental value of a sacrifice is important too, someone's sibling they've known since birth is exponentially more than someone random off the street, but again, that has its own implications and I don't know how much of the minutia (specific wards, incantations, etc.) translates to Lovecraftian rituals, or if I'd be able to pitch in, not having the Strange Aeons cheat. It's an extremely sketchy subject of dubious returns unless you're willing to do some heinous shit and/or lose a part of yourself you can't replace. The monster corpses aren't just useful for ritualistic sacrifices/boosting Creepiness, I plan to butcher and sell the meat/bones/ivory/what have you, though I'd be pitching around a quarter of what I gained from it back to the party. Alternatively, if you guys are onboard, going full Dungeon Meshi could be doable.

Shi casts his favorite spell, Charm Person, on the maid. His magical energy enters through her nostrils, and make her inebriated, as if she had drank too much elven wine. She goes to the storage room and brings the following scrolls to Shi:

>Scroll of Summon Demon
>Scroll of Mass Fear
>Scroll of Mass Strife
>Scroll of Detect Snares and Pits
>Scroll of Mass Confusion
>Scroll of Protection from Evil
>Scroll of Rage

"By Kek! I don't know why I'm doing this. Those scrolls are the property of the guild: they are supposed to be exchanged for a lot Kek Points. This is a true treasure. I will definitely be caught, fired, and probably imprisoned. But I don't care, right now. I'm feeling very detached and even euphoric. Hehe."

She laughs for a bit, in a mechanical manner.

Shi heads to the quest board. He relies on his instinct developed by frequenting the /b/ board, one of the filthiest boards of 4chan, to find quests related to monster girls. The last two quests catch his attention not for being related to monster girls, but because they are the highest ranked on the board and thus yield the most Kek Points.

From easiest to most difficult.

>"The Night Rapist" (E Rank) - 2 Kek Points
In the southern outpost, at the edge of the Empire, a mysterious creatures has been raping the soldiers at night, for several days now. (Shi thinks that if it rapes soldiers, it must be some sort of monster girl.)

>"The Aranea of Pulogne" (D rank) - 3 KP
A spider creature has taken home in the Wood of Pulogne and destroyed a large area. As the area becomes larger and larger, it's becoming a threat to human civilization. (Aranea sounds like a monster girl.)

>"White Slavery" (C rank) - 10 KP
The kidnapping of lower class women and prostitution is on the rise in the Lower Quarter. A succubus is suspected for the orchestration of both. (Literally a monster girl.)

>"The Crimean PLC" (B rank) - 20 KP
The Crimean PLC, a technologically advanced army, has been destroying villages and towns, and took home in the depth of the Wood of Pulogne.

>"Labyrinthia" (S rank) - 50 KP
Labyrinthia is a dungeon that has appeared in the area. The entrance has the shape of a vulva and no one so far has come out alive.

"Yes, the city has a library in the Noble Quarters, but no Temple of Kek. The major deities worshipped in Visea are Hermes and Hephaestus. The Adventurer's Guild is an island of sanity in a sea of evil and the closest thing to a Temple of Kek there is."

The maid has information pamphlets about the major classes. They are written in French and English. She brings him a pamphlet about priests, and another one about Kek.

Priests do not cast spells per say. They pray to their god to create miracles which take the appearance of spells. The miracles vary depending on their god's attributes, but it is expected that good gods will grant healing miracles, and evil gods harmful miracles.

Kek is the god of chaos and darkness. He should not be mistaken for an evil deity: he represents the darkness that brings dawn, and not the darkness of evil. His force of chaos represents freedom and creativity. As such, Kek is the patron of artists and NEETs. He is truly the most benevolent of all gods.

Squiddly touches the guild crystal. He's informed that he's a B rank and he receives his guild ID card.

>I give it an experimental twirl in the air, seeing if my Class's skill also applies to theatrical displays
Wade tries a few fighting moves with the short sword: attacks and counter-attacks against an imaginary enemy. The weight is not optimal, but he can use it with full proficiency. At least, he thinks so. He's not an actual gladiator; it's a power that he's received from Kek and that is in his muscle memory. But he feels that his moves are fast and accurate. He then spins the sword on his side, and then above his head. Feeling inspired, he lauches the sword in the air, then catches it with his fingertip. The sword for him is but a toy with which he can juggle at ease. Those moves are probably useless in an actual fight, but this is the kind of theatrical moves that can impress the crowd.

>"is there anything else points can be exchanged for?"

Ayame, a new adventurer, appears in Kek's Temple. She chooses to spin the wheel for her class. It stops on the image of a small hermit wearing a bear suit. The druid class! Kek tells her to walk through the portal and make contact with other Earthlings who will help her adjust to her life in the new world. He barely pays any attention to her afterward, as he's busy eating tendies and watching anime on a floating screen.

She walks through the portal and appears in the Adventurer's Guild hall, before Shi Hito. He's wearing a trenchcoat and sunglasses, as if he was a character from the Matrix movie. Unmistakably an Isekai victim, like her, as everyone else in the room is dressed in medieval attire. Shi Hito, also called "The Death Eater" or simply "Lord Shi", is a strong, handsome man, of the Japanese ethnicity, like her.

Druidess: You are a priestess who draws her power directly from Nature and not from any deity. You can cast spells that involve healing, charm, the weather and nature. You gain the Shapeshifting skill, rank Average.

>>4333069
The basic plan would be this, I would be bait for the succubus letting cast charm on me and then pretending to be under her spell. I would give the location of her base to the rest of the party through some kind of magic, once I’m kidnapped. I would distract her with idle conversation, while the party would try and get as close as possible to her while reaming undetected. Once I say the signal the casters would cast binding spells on her and I would wrap her up in my tentacles, and then force her to make a pact with me. If she breaks free we move to combat. I will face her head-on, while the rest of the party keeps their distance. Spellcasters will provide support, while I engage her. Melee people will deal with her minions. When she's weak enough spell casters cast binding spells, I constrict her with my tentacles, and we force her to make a pact with me. If she tries to flee before this I will shadow-step and attack her forcing her to deal with me before fleeing.

"Out of curiosity, are there any regulations on street-side performing?"
>>
>>4333088
That's a good plan, the problem is that she's been kidnapping women and the secretary you charmed will realize her mind's been tampered with and report it, and by extension, the rest of the party once she recovers. I think you could take advantage of the fact she's charmed to act as bait to draw in the succubus, because Isekai cliche dictates that the Adventurer's Guild secretaries are sexually attractive to facilitate fanservice for the thirsty NEETs watching them but that's not relevant here, the succubi will likely jump on the chance to get a hold of someone less corrupted than local prostitutes. Offering her to smooth over a prospective pact could be a good deal, and when we claimed that the demon attacked us and stole her soul in the Lower Quarter, we wouldn't technically trigger any lie-detecting spells.
>>
>>4333102
I don't like selling an innocent to cover for thief faggotry and don't want to make a habit of it but if the Adventurer's Guild cracks down every one of us is a dead-man walking. I bet the succubi's somehow involved with the slavers, this is a textbook edgy anime plot.

Also this is unlikely because Isekai, but in the original legend there's no gender distinction between incubi and succubi, they're the same demon and aren't able to produce their own hellspawn so they steal genetic material as the latter, corrupt it, and inseminate mortal women as the former, corrupting the offspring and everyone involved. This is relevant because Isekai is notorious for its perversion and while I strongly doubt incubi are one-side of the same entity or that they're a singular, genderless shapeshifter, as opposed to the gender-switching, there could be a sick spin of futa-faggotry involved which incentives me to recommend against any body-altering pacts. I dislike >>>/d/, cowgirls are about as extreme as I get, but we need to be sure we analyse every angle possible before making what could be a serious mistake.

Ah, I see. I meditate daily to manage my anger issues but I imagine that's nowhere near as rigorous as what a priest would undergo. Hmm... Can I still ask? Temples tend to be solid employers and cults often have access to... interesting contacts. Beside that, getting inducted into a cult and starting on the tedious process of currying enough favor with a deity to get ordained is a decent long-loong-looong term goal. I don't suspect I'd able to gain another class without putting in extensive effort. Not really any need to get involved with a cult, either, just trying to contact a sufficiently hands-off, amoral deity at an altar of theirs might be enough to get on the good side of an entity more reliable than the frog god, blessed be his digits. At least to ensure I'm not damned for following Shi or flouting what should've been (and was(!) certain death once.

I assume someone could -theoretically- become a Priest if they did it the long and hard way, just like they could become a Fighter or Thief or rarer niche class. Being a Sorcerer is much more innate to them, and probably isn't really something that can be trained.

...

Are regular blood infusions with a Sorcerer enough to artificially induce a Sorcerer's Gift, or would that just function as a sort of piss-weak random magic potion if it did anything at all?

I'll be straight with you, Shi is one of the best examples of the Neutral Evil alignment I've ever seen. Asking him not to abuse power is equivalent to asking a vampire not to drink blood, or an orc to butcher and raze the lands of men. It isn't in their nature, it is a very reckless, very self-serving nature but it's gotten him this far and he has the two most reliable healers in the party wrapped around his finger the best we can do from a moral standpoint, short of settling it in hyperviolence, is to mitigate the collateral damage.
>>
>>4333220
This is Isekai-land, I'd bet my ass they have a password for accessing equipment to prevent shapeshifters from doing exactly that, and you might want to find somewhere to hide before shapeshifting into someone infront of their coworkers.

On an unrelated note, do you think it'd be a bad idea to add an alignment section to my character sheet? Not trying to get into an argument about D&Disms, I think most of them are somewhat retarded, but for measuring how I'd probably be picked up by the sense-whatever spells that seem to be everywhere in these kinds of high-fantasy settings?
>>
On second thought, it'd probably be better to start off neutral, and then veer left or right, or up or down on the chart as QM Wuxian sees fit as the quest goes on.
>>
>>4333286
hey I’m a healer too, so he hasn’t got the monopoly of healing. And just because that’s actually what his character would do and a profitable behavior, my character would still oppose it. And maybe I can change Shi from “manipulating slavemaster bastard” to just “slavemaster”. But I agree on the fact that he’s a very good example of neutral evil (though I’d place him more on the chaotic side)
>>
>>4333298
That's how it works, I actually have a chart. Shi does not have an evil alignment.
>>
>>4333317
He did want to become the ice lord so I wouldn't place him as chaotic. I like Shi, his mindset is a refreshing foil to moralfaggotry without going too far, and every party needs at least one adventurer whose morals go against the grain, whether that's the necomancer suggesting bandit corpses don't go to waste or a fighter saying a disadvantageous surrender terms are preferable to starving thousands in a prolonged siege.

The pink-haired girl explains the White Slavery quest to Shi.

"Several of the poor families have reported to us that their daughter has been kidnapped. At the same time, we've had reports of an increase in prostitution in the Lower Quarter. One of our adventurers went on an investigation mission and interrogated one of the prostitutes. She said that she'd been trained by a woman of otherwordly beauty, with dark horns and powerful wings, and of intense cruelty. This presence is clearly abnormal and we have concluded that this is a succubus, and either she's been summoned by someone or found her way into Visea. The mission is to destroy the succubus and bring her head back to the guild. Any concrete evidence regarding who she works for will get a bonus."

Shi asks who controls the city and who controls the guild.

"The city is controlled by Mayor de Vemières, and the guild is controlled by the Guild Master Solana."

Shi is brought to the study room, which contains a small library and is also used for adventurers who need to meditate. Emiya and his slave follow him and sit next to him. Shi carefully takes the Scroll of Mass Strife out of his backpack, and begins studying it. He understand the basic concepts of mood based on the humors, as he's familiar with it from the Charm Person spell. Unfortunately, it also contains other arcane topics that are beyond his level of comprehension. Arcane magic is a purely intellectual discipline, like mathematics, and without proper comprehension, he will not be able to memorize or cast the spell.

Mark asks about the current gossips.

"Everyone is talking about Governor de Clarichanteau. Lately, he has lowered the tax rate and consequently, the conditions of life of the poor people has improved. There are rumors that he has met a woman, or that he's witnessed a miracle..."

He uses his clown magic to give her an illusionary cat tail. She raises her hand, imitating the paw of a cat, and says "Meow!"

Mark asks for an armor. She goes to the backroom and brings back a rusty chain mail. It fits him more or less and provides some protection.

"I recommend going to the smithery Chaufeu de métal for quality equipment. It's in the same street as the guild, to the right when you are leaving. The blacksmith has established an excellent reputation among the guild members and he can craft special armors and weapons if you bring him special ores that you collect during your adventuring."

Wade asks about the Lower Quarter.

"The Lower Quarter is located in the south-west part of town. This is where the poorer people and the criminals live. Most people are not harmful, although they will try to scam you if they see that you possess some wealth. However, it can be dangerous for guild members. They hate the Adventurer's Guild, and if they spot that you're a member, they will try to intimidate you or even kill you."

Wade asks about regulations on street-side performing. She informs him that there are none.

Wade asks about the known temples and cults in town. The main cult is the cult of Hermes, who's worshipped by alchemists and factory workers, and second is Hephaestus.

(Before she left Kek's temple, the god summoned a JSDF combat knife for her, as seen in the GATE anime.)

Ayame grows ears and a tail, and transforms into a catgirl, a humanoid species native of the Isekai. She gives a daisy to Mark, and a lily to Wade, which she has created in her hand with her newly acquired druidic powers.

She tries to transform in Sophia, but she feels that she's unable to. Her Shapeshifting power allows her to take the form of another race or species, but she always carries her own characteristic as compared to the average species. For example, whether she turns into a catgirl or an elf, her traits will adapt to the race, but she will keep her purple hair and eyes. That is different from a doppelganger, who copies all traits of their target.

Squiddly sits on the floor and begins priestly meditating to understand Kek's intentions. He focuses on the subject of harmful miracles.

He understands that Kek can curse people who like to drag attention on themselves and turn them into a non-descript green anon. That is in line with the god's ethics, who has gifted mankind with anonymous message boards. His philosophy is that people must kill the false ego of the human body and connect with their Kek Consciousness, the divine, higher consciousness said to reside inside of everyone. That is truly the essence of his teaching.

Another favorite miracle of Kek is to destroy banks and wealthy businesses. Kek abbhors evil merchants more than anything because they enslave humans with their evil money. It is to be remembered that Kek is a god of freedom (cf. previous turn). His favorite destruction is to cast them alive in gold, thus punishing them by which they have sinned, but he also enjoys burning them, drowning them or simpling bringing old-fashioned thunder on their house.

Further, Squiddly understands that since Kek is a god of chaos, his magic tends to be very varied, even infinite.

Ayame like's Wade-kun's idea, but isn't much of a showman. She starts to make fruit and flower crowns to sell. After a bit she asks to go outside and do weather/knife training. She does not have a partner so she just throws it at some tree.

And then Ayame wondered if she could jump higher so she chucked the knife up at a high branch, but she missed and had to run to catch it before someone dies, but she killed some lady be running into them. (if she's not that fast she just broke a lot of bones)

After panicking again she wondered why would Kek make her a speedster if she "was one before". Or if she could talk to kitties. Or if she could charge her psp. Or if she could run so fast she could set fags on fire, neat!

She reviewed her stuff.
>1 psp with broken screen
>one 5 y.o. smartphone
>1 cat phone charm
>1 pair of earbuds

So the thief stole the wallet and believed the psp was finished. She's still in her uniform so she took that off so her bra and panties showed. Then made a flowercrown of purple daises that are cute.

She tries to charm a dude for kek coins to buy a shield and potions with. Maybe a witch hat, arm warmers and black thighs.

The funny thing is that you can't just do somthing you have to roll for it so they're rolling to kill that old lady. What makes it even funnier is that every action has an equal opposite reaction and with below avearge toughness if they were to kill the lady by running into her they would be hurt even worse than her and die.

You can't decide what happens before you roll when you take an action or write dialogue for another character, that's what the QM's supposed to determine from the dice results. It's an Isekai anime setting, shenanigans are bound to happen on their own, everyone appreciates the enthusiasm but there's no need to try and rush things. Also, what the fuck's the in-character reason for stripping half-naked in public?

To be fair I'm pretty sure most old ladies have lower than Below Average Toughness, and some Shapeshifters are capable of healing themselves by switching from their current form to one without the damage though I'm not certain that's the case here because they're unable to shapeshift their broad appearance, just their race and form, which implies some continuity is maintained

Living legend. Your Death Roulette cheat worries the hell out of me, it's probably beat the RNG or die applied to the entire room including you, which is terrifying and potentially ludicrously powerful or horrible depending on your luck. If Destroy does what I think it does and applies to doors, a Thief would be rendered largely redundant though... It might be a bad idea to use on locked treasure chests.

>>4334054
Your first quest? That's okay, we've all been there and done that at some point. More or less how it works with the Mythic RPG system is you state your actions, roll an appropriate number of dice, and then the GM takes and feeds them into the GM Emulator to randomly generate what happens and how NPCs react. In the context of the thread, we, the players, each control an individual character, their actions, reactions, and everything about them save the result of the actions they undertake. Together, the QM's updates and each player's feedback/replies make an emergent narrative or "quest." I hope you enjoy the quest but in all seriousness what the fuck why would you decide to start taking off your fucking clothes in front of the anime-equivalent to the unionized bounty hunter/vigilante precinct? After potentially, knowingly killing a woman with zero response or remorse to the act of manslaughter? That's just, I don't fucking know, fuck.

Hey Shi, out of curiosity, what would you do if you had my dual blessings? I'm planning on getting some candles, chalk, and wine in an isolated inn room and using my knowledge of occultism to try and commune with an aspect of the Slime Lord, then dump both blessings into negotiating favourable terms for a portion of its power in exchange for the branding of my chest with its sigil and possibly a random preferably innocuous mutation or two because I'm pretty comfortable with body horror and that could smooth over negotiations.

That sounds like a decent plan to me turn some short term benfits into longterm ones. Though, let's hope kek doesn't get angry at you trading away his blessings

>>4334086
Ah that's right, like I said I wasn't underselling my Wisdom score and forgot. I like to think I'm somewhat self-aware, but if I was I'd have fact-checked before mentioning that. Yeah I don't know if that will end well for them.

>>4334093
Hmm, now that I think of it, I could offer to dissolve a portion of my treasure instead. Slimes are generally pretty big on dissolving shit and I don't think the Slime Lord is likely to be any different.
>>
>>4334096
Isac Newton's third law states "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction." Thus if you apply force on her that force would be applied back on you equally. If you successfully apply enough force to the lady to kill, the same amount of force would be applied to you and you would die as well.

>>4334098
I'm glad you think so, you seem to be a solid judge of cutthroat ways to accumulate power. As for trading away the blessings, one of them are the numericals of Jesus Christ, blessed be his name and so on, but they can specifically be used on any action so I doubt the associated entity is too involved in the action. My long-term plan is to have a dozen sigils branded onto my chest in a circle, each feeding a little bit of power and corruption that can grant me the powers of a Warlock that's sold his soul without compromising mine, which I plan to dedicate to a deity that's fine with accumulating power at all costs, has a decent portfolio, and a philosophy I can vibe with. Once I've done that, I'll etch their symbol into the center myself and use my chest as a portable ritual embedded in my flesh. From there I'll try to start a cult and look into magitech cybermetics, if I didn't do so earlier. That's all extremely long-term and I'm highly likely to get burnt at the stake or dragged into an alternate hell dimension before then though.

>>4334110
Yes but we are in magical Isekai anime land, which means that the laws of anime bullshit can arbitrarily supersede conventional logic, like in Naruto with some of the high-flying ninjitsu. I wouldn't bank on it from that's far from a sure thing.
>>
>>4334140
Thanks Shi. I have to leave for now. What would you like?
>>
>>4334148
>*portable ritual circle embedded in my flesh
I basically want to BE the kind of threat that an S Tier Adventurer's Guild party would be assigned to hunt down. Turning it into a soul furnace could be cool in an edgy way, aka, the best way, but it's a bit out of the scope of my knowledge.
>>
>>4334152
The party's about to go on a mission to capture a succubus that's been kidnapping women and bring its head back to the Adventurer's Guild. You'd work as bait for luring in the succubus and get an equal share of the reward, of course.
>>
>>4334156
So you wanna want to be powered by a philsophers stone with a transmutation circle on your body to focus your power like in full metal alchemist?
>>
>>4334182
Basically, and I'm banking on combining a lesser boon from multiple entities can match a greater boon from a single entity for sheer power but lose minimal versatility from each individual sigil. I'd train them to their limit too and mix and match their use to fit the situation and catch my opponents off-guard, though I'd have to be subtle about it because I'm not a Sorcerer. For example if I'm using hellfire to duel a swordsman that reveals he has a fireproof ring, I'd switch over to ice shards while trying to trip them with a sudden slime slick. If I weren't Mathematically Retarded I'd try to get in good with the alchemist's guild and pursue that avenue too, though if primitive guns exist there's nothing preventing me from packing flintlocks too. What is your current long-term plan Shi?
>>
>>4334203
I don't think you'll need a god's power if you have a philosopher's stone, though learning how to make one is another deal entirely.
>>
>>4334203
I'm a standard wizard, so my progression is pretty normal, grow the number of spells I know particularly the powerful ones, get a base, grow my harem/army of demons and monster girls, take over a city. You know normal adventurer stuff. Eventually, I may attract the attention of a god and gain some boons, but I'm not gonna rush into it or anything.
>>
>>4334229
No, I didn't mean a philosopher's stone because that is essentially the lichdom of alchemy and I don't have anywhere near the skill to begin pursuing it, I meant
>circle of forbidden sigils from different entities, who each took a serious but not insurmountable cut
>in the center is symbol of patron deity manually carved then burned into flesh
>channel warlock energies to circle holy symbol while meditating, then release both at the same time
>???
>profit
The magitech cybernetics are just an easy if insanely expensive and difficult/impossible to acquire method of improving my base attributes. Remember that I still have the Creepy cheat that I'll be grinding and intensifying as the aura of wrongness from so many forbidden signs on the same body escalates. I don't know where you got the Philosopher's Stone from, and it'd technically be a ritual circle not a transmutation circle. Of course if this turns out to be impossible I'll just double-down on the Slime Lord while improving my Gladiator skills to become a gimmicky miniboss. I know I don't have to follow a deity but being sure my soul goes to an afterlife overseen by an entity that favours me seems much better than risking it getting dragged into the lowest pits of hell for trying to game the system.


>>4334241
Very reasonable, Strange Aeons should be a huge help with that. I have a faint suspicion your goal with the succubus pact is to improve your sex appeal and start getting back to Harem Protag status. That's fine by me, as long as we can bring back the head and get a reward. Or at least give me access to the succubus corpse, if demons leave one behind in this world, I suspect crushing the bones into powder and using them to supplement chalk in summoning circles could make it easier to call hellish entities. That, or fuck me over in the worst way possible, but that's what the bootleg wards and rusted sword are for.
>>
>>4334251
If the demon can make me look better, that's all the better but I just want a succubus to add to my harem and a foothold into the demonic world. I can cast charm person, using an exceptional stat to cast it, and it's favored spells with a +1RS, so suffice to say I don't need any more charming abilities.

Wade shouts:

"COME ONE! COME ALL! AND WITNESS FEATS OF MARTIAL PROWESS UNSEEN OUTSIDE OF FOREIGN SHORES FOR THE PRICE OF NOTHING AT ALL BECAUSE IT'S FREE!"

「Weapon Skill」He begins by spinning his sword on the side, then he throws it in the air, while it's still spinning, then catches it back with his other hand. He throws the sword higher and higher, and catches the attention of a small public. The spinning causes the sword to float for a few seconds in the air, this is very impressive to watch but easily explained with Newtonian physics. The longest he can make the sword float is 3 seconds!

When he finishes his performance, the crowd applauds modestly and throws a few coins on the floor.

A kid walks up to him and asks if he can do fire breathing tricks.

The writing on the Mass Strife scroll slowly fades away. This is an immutable Law of Magic: when a magical text is observed, it always disappear. The text itself is a volatile memory put on paper through the force of magic.

「Wizard」Shi takes out the Summon Demon scroll, the highest level scroll that he has obtained. Shi understands that the spell creates a portal between his world and the dimension of Hell, through which it is possible to summon demons and other creatures of Hell. But beyond that, the content of the text is absolutely obscure. It refers to goetic and cabalistic concepts which are unknown to Shi. He only vaguely feels that his consciousness is trapped in a mind maze from which he can escape, and that his clarity of mind is slowly escaping him. He enters a mental illusion of his crafting where he turns wheels and tries to undo the constraints of his mind. He gets close to success, but the closer he gets, the more he feels that his mind is burning. The burning becomes intolerable and Shi gives him. He opens his eyes, back in reality. The writing on the Summon Demon scroll is fading away too. Another spell that he has failed to learn.

He gets up from his chair, perfectly calm, and grabs two books from the guild's library.

First Book: "Succgen #67"

The book appears to be the 67th in a series, although all the other volumes are missing. It is hand-written by Anonymous from Earth, clearly an Isekai traveller.

"The Letter Method is considered by most to be the most popular proper ritual for succubus summoning." Shi reads the five-step ritual, which is based off mind energy, emotions, and a candle. The author concludes that he has been trying the ritual for months, but it doesn't work, although he feels that his sexual energy has greatly improved.

The following pages are covered with drawing of anime girls, and what Shi recognizes to be quotes from 4chan. Here are the most interesting quotes that Shi finds.

"You cannot summon succubi like prostitutes. Succubi are attracted to vital energy, not random symbols for non reasons." Now, that seems like more useful information and would explain why The Letter Method was non successful.

"Angry succubi may kill host, induce nightmares, summon shadow jester caste, or erectile dysfunction for prank." That part looks incredibly dangerous would could hinder Shi's future plans greatly.

Second Book: Demon Binding for Beginners

"Demon binding is best done through a contract. Demons are forced to respect all contracts, including verbal agreements. Such contract must be carefully worded, because a demon trapped by a contract will try its best to find loopholes in it and gain the upper hand. Particular forms of disruption magic can be used to emulate the power of a contract. The magic must dominate the demon's will and get them to acknowledge the spellcaster as stronger than them, which is a contract in itself. The relationship as an alpha must be maintained at all time, because there's an implicit agreement to the contract that if the caster shows any sign of weakness, then the initial magic is no longer enough to dominate the demon."

Mark goes to the blacksmith's shop. The blacksmith's fire is powered by an enormous steam machine, which makes clicking and whistling sounds at all time. Behind a force shield, his best creations are exhibited. The most beautiful piece is an ornamented sword with a blade that glows like sword.

「Honkler」Mark recites a clown poem, which boosts his talent as a professional con artist. The poem is good and has a good rhyme, increasing Mark's powers. At first reluctant, the blacksmith accepts to play Follow the Ball. If Mark wins, he will gain a free weapon. If the blacksmith win, he will gain one of Mark's items.

「Con Artist」Mark uses his magic to summon three illusory plastic cups and a small red ball. He places the ball under the middle cup, and begins moving the cups in circles. At first slowly, but then faster and faster, until golden sparkles are created from the speed. In fact, the sparkles are a distraction created by Mark to get his victim's attention off the cups. Suddenly, Mark stops moving.

The blacksmith is very excited and points to the left cup. Mark honks and the cups disappears. The red ball was under the middle cup! Amazing! He has successfully tricked the blacksmith, a man of experience who can craft powerful magic items. The blacksmith laughs. He had fun and he brings Mark free items, as promised.

Elven Chain Mail: This fine armor of elven design offers a good protection and is very light.

Squiddly mediates on the subject of healing miracles.

「Meditation」The miracle of healing is the most important miracle granted to priests by their gods. It allows to alleviate the suffering of others, friends or foes. Common miracles include the powers to heal wounds, regrow limbs and cure diseases. This knowledge is intuitive and Squiddly cannot really put words to it. He just knows that healing others is an innate part of himself, which he can do through faith in his god.

「Druidic Magic」Ayame uses her druidic powers to summon fruits and flowers.

She sits next to the martial juggler and patiently weaves them into crowns. She tries to sell them in the street, but no one is interested. It seems that the people of this technologically advanced towns do not like things of nature too much or are too depressed.

For the same reason, the entire town does not have one tree, other than the one inside of Kek's Adventurer's Guild. Hence, Ayame sets her eyes on a board outside of the guild to practice her knife training. Although her speed of reflex has been tremendously improved with her "Buffed Up" cheat, it does not help much in knife throwing, nor does it alter her general speed to move around. When an old lady walks in front of the board, right in the knife's trajectory, she tries to run in her direction to stop the knife, but she's much, much slower than the flying weapon. Thankfully, the woman is only wounded, as the knife stuck in her left shoulder. Although, it would have been much funnier if she died, but fate has decided otherwise.

"WHAT HAVE YOU DONE, YOU YOUNG DELINQUENT?! YOU ATTACK ME IN FRONT OF THE ADVENTURER'S GUILD, NO LESS!"

She walks in front of Wade and points her finger at him.

"GUARD!!! WILL YOU ARREST THIS YOUNG DELINQUENT, OR WHAT?! DO I HAVE TO REFER TO THE MAYOR ABOUT THIS SITUATION?"

A black cat walks in front of Ayame.

"Shut up, old hag. No one cares about your story," the cat says, with disdain.

"-Nya" he adds, to finish his sentence.

Ayame can understand the cat language! Is it because she has taken a catgirl form?

She walks back to the guild hall, and gets rid of her work uniform.

「Druidic Magic」Once undressed, she walks up to a one-eyed barbarian, armed with a gigantic battle axe. She walks toward him and stops in front of him, raises her hands, and unleashes her powers. Green threads of energy leave her fingertips and enter inside of his nostrils, leaving an odor of freshly cut plants in the air. Of course, that she wears a crown of purple daisies adds to her charm, and the barbarian gets dominated by her magic. He seems to be eager to do anything that she requests, and his face is as red as a tomato.

"M... Miss... You are already beautiful as you are, but I will go shopping for you..."

The barbarian leaves and comes back after half an hour. He's bought everything that she's requested, but did he get the right color for the witch hat?

Seems like a pretty reasonable deity, as far as all-consuming aberrations go.

She walked away from the barbarian in a strut of pride. This new power is MUCH better than pickpocketing. The witch hat was the correct color, but the arm warmers weren't. She didn't really care and believes that she needs more practice. She forgot the scarf tho and thought asking for a cute dress was pushing it. Wade told her that being in a place like this in a bra and panties combo is a bad idea to say the least so she put back on her shitty 7Eleven uniform which was a red shirt and khaki pants she made into shorts with the combat knife to show of the black thigh high socks.

She made a mental to give Wade the potions foe saving her ass then walked to the library to read up on Druidic Magic hoping she can become a monster girl.

>"Is this enchanted Mr. Smith?" Mark asks.

"It is not. It is made of mithril, and conceived specially to be light, yet strong, for specifically for thief adventurers such as yourself."

>"How about this one?" (while trying out the shield)

"This one is a normal shield, although I have forged it myself, so you will find that it is good quality and solid."

>"Do you know how to enchant items?"
"No, I do not. Enchanting items is more the work of magicians than a blacksmith's."

>"Do you have anything that can help with aim?"
The blacksmith brings him magically enchanted arrows. "Those magical arrows would certainly help to improve your aim. Would you be interested in buying them?"

Unfortunately, the arrows are much more expensive than Mark could afford. He bids the blacksmith goodbye and walks to a tailor shops down the street, where he finds an adventurer's outfit that catches his eyes. That is exactly how you'd expect a medieval thief to dress. It seems that a lot of the shop in the street know how to cater to the Adventurer's Guild needs.

Finally, an easy spell! Shi studies the Scroll of Protection from Evil, and easily understands and learns it. He carefully copies it inside of spellbook, and the writing disappears from the scroll.

He goes back downstairs to the pink-haired maid and asks about a demonologist.

"There's in the Lower Quarter the warlock and demonologist Egéphiar. Certainly, he should know how to bind a demon, as it is his profession. He has the reputation of being dangerous, however. He likes to enslave or kill the people who annoy him. The guild can't really do anything against him, as slavery is legal in this region."

She gives Shi the direction to go to Egéphiar's house.

Wade speaks very formally, like a soldier, and asks the old lady to come with him. He puts his hand on her good shoulder, to help her to walk. Unexpectedly, she hits him with her walking cane.

"CHIKAN!" she screams.

A female warrior, dressed in a steel bikini and holding a three meter long sword, comes out of the guild at this moment. She throws a disguted glance at Wade, before walking away. He is truly a creep! Who would think of groping an old lady! It is discovered that Wade the Puritan is, in fact, the vilest sort of pervert!

Wade runs inside and tries to find Ms. Miyashita, the priestess. He explains that there's an injured lady outside. She answers:

"I'm a High Priestess, not a common doctor. For this type of low-level task, you can ask the slave."

Abigail, priestess of Aphrodite, follows Wade outside, but the old lady has already left, perhaps because she feared being molested further. Wade goes to the board and take the combat knife. Abigail looks around to make sure that Shi is not behind her, and speaks:

"Please, take me away from Shi. I'll clean your clothes and cook your meals. But I don't want to go back to him. He's a cruel, petty man. I don't understand this crazy world and I can't survive on my own. I'm just a normal girl. I'm scared. Please... save me."

She cries.

Squiddly witnesses the old woman being abused by the others.

“Calm down miss, it was clearly an accident. Now, if you stay still for a bit I’ll get you patched up, alright?”

Squiddly joins his palms together and recite a prayer, while focusing on the image of Pepe the Frog in his mind.

"Keku-sama, I call on your benevolent darkness to heal this wounded soul."

「Heal」Dozens of small, ethereal frogs leave from his palm and leap onto the wounded shoulder of the woman. All damage is healed, even her skin. The crowd is wowed and applauds. So, that is the legendary power of the priests... Amazing.

Squiddly then walks to the blacksmith. He shows his energy bars and the crovel. The man seems very excited. He rubs the plastic, seemingly impressed with the material.

"What sort of fabric is this? It exceptionally smooth and covered with perfectly drawn letters. I have never seen such perfection, this is absolutely amazing!"

The blacksmith offers to trade a full plate armor and a large steel shield for the energy bars and the crovel.

>>4335213
Ayame, taking fashion advices from Wade, puts back on her work outfit. She walks upstairs to the study room where Shi is studying his spells, and researches the subject of druidry. The barbarian follows her from a distance and guards the entrance. Assuredly, that raises a few eyebrows, as it was unseen before that a barbarian enters this room.

Book: Druids and their Traditions - Shapeshifting Chapter

Many people describe Shapeshifting as a power inherent to the the nature of the druid, yet it is our belief that Shapeshifting is in fact an art. For indeed, one cannot shapeshift into a creature that is unknown to them. Thus, it is obvious that Shapeshifting has an element of determination, if not creativity.

(The author rants more about his opinions on whether Shapeshifting is an art of a power.)

A specificity of nature is the concept of monster girl -- a kawaii creature born from a monstrous race. Many philosophers have speculated on whether they occur naturally or if they are the fruit of a wizard's effort. In the case of the druidess, certainly, it is a deliberate effort. A druidess who is particularly kawaii in her appearance and behavior will often unconsciously turn into a monster girl when trying to take the form of a monstrous creature. It is also possible to make it a conscious effort, then improving the odds of success.

Yeah but first we’d need some way to keep the succubus still long enough to nail her down.
Blessed salt/water may come in handy

Why do you want to nail the succubus down? I'm going to force it into a contract with magic after holding it with my tentacles and having the caster try and magical bind it with their spells. I don't see why you would need nails or holy water.

「Cursed Sage」Squiddly utters the word "Destruction", and a small rock in front of him immediately disintegrates. Wow!

Mark requested nails, and Squiddly hurries back to the blacksmith, eager to help with the request.

“Hey man sorry to waste your time again but my friend needs four big iron nails. Like, very big, not the kind you put planks together with. In exchange, I have this thing you use to punch people.”

「Random Event / PC Negative」When the blacksmith sees Squiddly, he gets angry.

"I've opened the food bar and tasted it! It was absolutely disgusting! I don't want any more of your objects! I will not ask for the armor back, a deal is a deal, but don't ever come back here!"

Squiddly
>Takes -1 RS general damage
>+full plate armor, +large steel shield

>>4335703
「Minor Illusion」Mark uses his holy clown magic to create illusory holes in the fabric of the clothes. The tailor takes a close look at it and twirls him moustache nervously.

"1 silver?! ATROCIOUS! Dont you see that hole in the back and here and here and here? What the hell there is even a rip here in the seams!"

"I'm really sorry, good customer. This is really the first time it has happened! I can't apologize enough! I don't know how it's possible! Yes, I can sell you this outfit for only 3 copper, or perhaps would you prefer that I fix it back? It would only take me half an hour."

Mark goes to the library to search for a specific type of sucker to con. What he needs is a lonely, chatty mage with specific knowledge about demons. That should be easy to find, right?

「Random Event / NPC Action」There, he is. A rotund man wearing a mage hat, studying attentively the pictures in the "Succgen #67" book. Mark recites a poem >>4336344 to inquire about the type of refrain that would be effective against demonic creatures.

"And WHY would you ask me that? Are you perchance a demon?"

His small, weasel eyes examine Mark closely.

"Mhph! There's no way an imp like you could get in the guild, right?"

He laughs.

"Oh yes, salt will make you melt. DEFINITELY."

The man takes out a small leather pouch and throws salt in Mark's eyes from it.

"How's that?"

Wade holds up his palm in what he hopes is a calming gesture. Abigail jumps on him and wraps her arms around him. She has stopped crying.

"Please save me soon. Since I've seen you in the mage's strange, fucked-up castle, I've known that you are a reliable man."

Thotery has no hold on Wade, though. He asks the question he's been doing to have answered.

"Can you tell me if it's true that Aphrodite is in fact another name for Ishtar?"

"Huh..." she pulls back from him, looking at him with a blank expression.

"I will try to meditate on this subject, I'm not very good with this kind of stuff."

She closes her eyes, joins her palms, and speaks to Aphrodite out loud.

"Aphrodite! Goddess of Love! It is I, Abigail, your priestess, speaking! Please tell me, for this good man here, if Ishtar means anything to you?"

Abigail remains for a few seconds.

"I feel that yes... I can't explain but... I vibrate to this name. Do you know what I mean? Aphrodite is Ishtar, yes."

Yes, the noble Grecian Pantheon, of Indo-European origins, had been tainted by influences from their Semitic neighbors. It is now divinely confirmed, and that is definitely scary.

Shi appears behind them. He says to Abigail:

"You're coming to with me. I'm going to show you what it's like to live in the slums. Mabey then you'll understand my charity."

"I.... I have never doubted your generosity, m.... m'lord. We were only talking about my goddess... P... Please, Wade, tell him."

「Shapeshifting」Ayame's purple fur becomes shorter and thicker. She grows gentle, translucid wings and an extra pair of inflated arms with three-finger hands, and flexible antannae on her forehead. Her pupils grow bigger until her entire eye is black colored. The torches illuminating the room now look strangely attractive to her, as part of her new moth instinct. She might look cute, but some people would find this appearance repulsive, depending on their personal aversion to insects. With her experiment successful, she tries to transform back into a catgirl, but she's unable too. She feels exhausted on an energetic level; her power of transformation is limited.

The barbarian sees her and charges toward her, screaming. His hairy, muscular torso is covered with sweat; evidently, he's feeling very nervous.

"EOOOOOORGH!!!"

He doesn't recognize that it's the Chosen One because she has transformed, or he wouldn't dare attack. He only sees a monster in the study room of the guild. He swings his axe at her, trying to chop her head off.

「Buffed Up」Ayame's reflexes are extraordinarily fast and she just rolls her head under the blade. It feels to her like time is slowing down when she's getting attacked.

Ayame jumps through the window, her descent slowed down by her wings, and lands gracefully on the pavement. [This action can be cancelled if you want, this is for following Shi.]

Shi walks to the Lower Quarter, followed by Abigail, Ayame, and Wade. The Lower Quarter is a place of nightmare. The floor is covered with a dark, sticky liquid; the air is permanently polluted by a toxic fog of poison, blown by the wind from the factories. There are many mendicants sitting in the street, visibly suffering from some disease. Some have a wrinkled, yellow-green skin; others have open sores everywhere on their face and limbs. When seeing the adventurers, they shake their begging cups, hoping to get a few coins so that they can perhaps afford a glass of clean water.

They walk through the poison until they reach a dark manor, protected by a living wall of rotten flesh. This is as described by the pink-haired maid. The front door is open, and the party enters through it. The hallway is decorated with human and flesh artifacts; on the side, slaves covered with distasteful piercings and tattoos are holding lanterns in their hand. The adventurers walk through them and to a richly decorated living room, with expensive paintings and precious cushions. The demonologist is there. He's an ugly man, with strong facial features, a perfectly groomed goatee, and wearing a red suit and bowtie. He's concentrated, playing a game of chess against an old man.

He accepts to speak to answer any question, but on the condition that Shi's team beats him at a game of riddle. The rules are as follow:

GAME OF RIDDLE
>1) Each participant can ask the demonologist a riddle.
>2) The participant's riddle must be well-conceived and logical; nonsensical riddles will be rejected. If both parties cannot agree on whether the riddle is well-conceived or not, the old man will serve as judge.
>3) If the demonologist cannot solve the riddle, he will answer one question from the participant, any question, to the best of his knowledge.
>4) However, if he can solve the riddle, he will ask a counter riddle.
>5) If the participant can answer the demonologist's riddle, then he can ask one question to the demonologist, as above.
>6) If the participant cannot answer the demonologist's riddle, he will immediately be enslaved by the demonologist.

Afterward, the party is to leave the house immediately, because he's busy playing an important game of chess.

The demonologist summons a magical contract and a quill that will bind them to the game. If signed, the participants will be bound by the rules and magically forced to wear a slave collar that puts them under control of the demonologist (as seen in the anime "Rise of the Shield Hero").

It'd be a shit situation if we rolled badly and there was no way the demonologist couldn't know the answer, but the riddle was esoteric enough that you'd have to ask us to give it to you and fuck ourselves over. I'm sure there aren't any of us that wouldn't but it's still a bad situation.

>>4336727
I came up with this on the fly and in retrospect, think it's about lower mid-tier as far as riddles go. There are a couple of hints that really narrow it down. I like to think of riddles as a kind of puzzle-joke, when you really get down to it.

I should clarify, I don't have any particular question, me asking if he wants to trade sigils is independent of the riddle game. For my question, I'll ask whether chess is a local or exotic game to the city's culture, as I'm from a distant land and curious about who the game's biggest players are. As a demonologist, he should respond better to ambiguous subtext than directly asking about the identities of the major demonologists, sorcerers, and occult power-players in the city. I'm also interested in seeing the old man's reaction and how deep the Isekai goes.

Mark asks to the rotund man a song against demons.

"Very well. Listen careful, because I will only sing it once. This is a complex, holy invocation which is said to offer protection against demons. It calls the name of Kami-sama, so do not use it lightly!"

The man casts a magical spell on himself, so that he can sing well, in a professional tenor voice.

Hatsune Miku - Kyrie Eleison
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eszEJ7nRWXc

After this short encounter, Mark meets Squiddly in the street, who had been looking for him. Squiddly makes the very disappointing announcement that he failed to complete his errand.

「Wisdom」Squiddly meditates on the subject of spells against demons. He intuitively understands that yes, holy magic is more effective against them than normal spells. And it is only logical, because holy and demonic are two opposed forces. The fate of all things demonic is to ultimately get destroyed by holiness.

The Marksman then travels to the Lower Ward, where he finds a tavern near the entrance. The people inside are all poor, many wearing rags, or not even having shoes, yet they also seem friendly. They just seem to be mostly good people who have been screwed over by an unjust system. The tavern smells of beer, freshly baked bread, and soup. Mark, his fave covered by his hood, does not attract unwanted attention.

Wade recites his riddle.

>I utter word with no tongue and sense a clamor without ear's drum,
>I lay still and silent beneath open skies, yet burst into motion behind closed doors.
>I am what I am, but you tell me.
>What am I?

The demonologist thinks for a moment before he responds.

"An echo. A good riddle, alas I had already heard many variants of it. I suspect you have come here to learn about my art, so take it as a lesson in demonology. The highest power in the world is intellect. The second greatest power is knowledge. With both, even demons must bend to your will. You see, I have heard thousands of riddles. It would take a succulently eldritch mind to defeat me."

He takes a finely crafted crystal glass of wine, and takes a sip.

"It is now my turn to ask you a riddle:
The highest tower ever made
Although high, it has no shade
What is it?"

>While you're pondering, do you think you'd care to discuss infernal sigilism?
"I don't think so, no."

>>4336779
Shi recites his riddle, of which the answer is his own name, "Shi Taberu Hito".

Obviously, the demonologist is unable to answer. When Shi explains what "Shi Taberu Hito" means, he bumps his fist on the table.

"Pathetic! This is a nonsensical riddle and I reject it! First of all, you do not haunt my dreams, and secondly, the answer could be any evil creature! You have broken the second rule of the contract!"

The old man nods. The riddle has been rejected, and Shi's contract, which was floating in the air, disintegrates.

>>4336908
Ayame recites her riddle.

>You have me today, tomorrow [...]

"Memories," the demonologist answers, before she can even finish her first line. "This is a good riddle. I find it amusing because it contains words such as time and space which are themselves often the subject of riddles. But it is also a riddle which I know by memory. Now, you have called me a mediocre faggot, so I will give you a particularly difficult riddle. And then, I will have you today, and tomorrow, and the day after, as my own personal slave. That is, if I don't choose to kill you first."

The demonologist recites his riddle.

"It doesn't haunt;
The pathetic dog!
The second of his five,
I eat it every day!
What is it?"

The demonologist takes a ring out of his pocket.

"You see, this is the time where the odds are that you might attack me if you realize that you're going to lose. So, I have this as a precaution."

Any good riddle gives you bits of information to figure out a whole, sometimes they may be confusing, but there is a truth that can be found in it. If one didn't know what an echo was or it's properties they wouldn't have been able to figure out wade's riddle, it's the same with mine I just picked something obscure.

I doubt it's very rare she's a D rank nothing special. She's just a heal bitch I won in a tournament.

>>4337028
I have to hand it to you, that was a very nice riddle and I'm about 80% sure my own answer was false but it's the only one I could muster. I'm looking forward to seeing what the answer is. This demonologist seems pragmatic, might be able to get freedom through the completion of a task but there's never any guarantee with this kind of thing.

>>4337038
The answer to riddles are supposed to be objective, a lycanthrope might say the answer is a vampire and be right, because it's a subjective riddle, looking at it outside of an individual perspective, there's no right or wrong answer. This is great though, I tell no lie when I say you'd be a god-tier Xianxia protagonist.

Yeah I know but this demonologist has a major edge on us power-wise and he's pissed off, so if I make him think she's more valuable than she is, he might try and claim the priestess instead of calling in a favor with a pit fiend.
>>
>>4337073
The demonologist seems weak to me, all he has are slaves, he should have a few actual demons waiting on him. I think I could take him, with my skillset and rank. If he doesn't give me the knowledge or one of you gets's enslaved I'll kill him and take his shit.
>>
>>4337054
Not trying to white-knight or cuck for your sake, this a demonologist skilled enough to openly keep their independence in a slaver-run city with an adventurer's guild that makes an entire industry out of slaying people like him. This guy's cunning enough to cheat entities dozens of times older than him out of their power, and do it repeatedly, the fucker probably brokers souls. Do you have any idea what the consequences of fucking him over could be? Getting subject to a lifetime of menial labour or instantly condemned to oblivion for a minor power-up is the least of our worries, and you're an explicitly powerful sorcerer while I'm just a mundane gladiator with a weak spooky aura, you should be more paranoid.
>>
>>4337088
The only reason the guild doesn't bust down his door is, because slavery is legal. They work within the law they aren't gonna try and kill a law-abiding citizen. He's not even known for being powerful just "dangerous". A homeless man with a shiv is dangerous. I recognize he may be powerful, but I doubt he's some top-level player just because he does a bit of demonmacy. I have confidence in my abilities and I came here for a set purpose, I'm not going to return empty-handed.
>>
>>4337079
If he were smart he'd have a demon cloaked from obvious view and/or a fiend patrolling the city-block, and he has nothing to prove when normal slaves are just as effective as an expensive succubus or imp would be for the same benefit. I think the old man playing chess is the most dangerous person in the room, I'd bet my left nut he's involved with the shadier side of the alchemist or merchant's guild. A slaver's guildsman wouldn't want anything to do with him because he's known for catching his own slaves and doing it for personal reasons, not profit, which is what they're after. I think you're taking this guy too lightly is all, but I appreciate the offer to help break me out if/when the answer turns out false, bailing while you can would be a better idea. My safety aside, the last thing I want to do is be center of a bullshit side-quest when the succubus kidnapping and whoring people out needs to be caught, I should be able to haggle or connive a way out on my own when ultimately, I willingly, knowingly walked into it on my own. If not, that's my own fuck-up and I'll own up to it, though not without trying to see if a *complete* pact with the Slime Lord can't override the magical collar's obligation. As a last resort, of course. They do seem to be a bro, though, maybe making a heavier commitment later on instead of nickel and diming like a little bitch afraid of consequences isn't a bad idea.

>>4337113
Yes, slavery is legal but it's run by a guild, this guy's operating outside of guilt constraints and the only reason he hasn't been clamped down on by the slaver's guild for busting their monopoly is that he's either powerful or influential enough for that to be infeasible without the slaver's guild losing more resources than it would gain. That's concerning to me because we're essentially an upper-mid tier adventuring party with no serious contacts or rank-appropriate equipment, so pissing off the slaver's guild could be a bad idea. About the Slime Lord, I'm not trying to be melodramatic about the shit, they seem to have a pretty reasonable deal compared to most dark powers that would be prone to signing a pact.

It's perhaps not the ideal patron, but still top-tier as far as eldritch horrors go. An akashic librarian analogue or mother-of-monsters type could be neat as well, because almost every anime has at least one of those. Wouldn't be opposed to signing off if the benefits were good but I'd like to figure out what other niche deities are willing to take souls for devotion and power in what amounts to a shortcut to the rightly despised middle-ground between Sorcerer and Priest.


>>4337152
No, that's part of the contract if we lose the riddle game. If we win he answers one of our questions, but some people are insulting him so he's getting pissed and making it harder.

>>4337169
And take his eyes off the chessboard for a couple of power-hungry edgelords that blew in from the adventurer's guild? This is tuesday for him. Could be an evil-aligned rogue or monk too, or a neutral one that enjoys the game and doesn't have anything to do with the guilds. Fuck, for all we know HE is a demon negotiating a deal through the game of chess and this is just a pleasant diversion.
>>
>>4337186
I'll agree to disagree, we don't have enough information on this guy and all your making is baseless assumptions. He seems weak to me and until proven otherwise I'm going to seeing him as such. If you guys wanna be left behind that's all the merrier, but I need this spell and I'm willing to risk my life to get it.

>>4337186
Elemental entities are also nice, swearing to a minor primordial elemental of something obscure like smoke or slag, or a subset of a more major element like ice or steam, though I suppose smoke and slag both fall under that criteria. Really, there's endless possibilities here and I'm liking the idea the more I mention it, though from a logical standpoint, it is a bad idea. Really is a shame there aren't any arenas in the city.

>>4337206
I just think it's best to err on the side of caution, we don't know if we're handling a parlour trickster or thoth-amon with a chessboard and there's no way to be sure until after we've gotten a reaction out of them. Bluffing is a serious part of high-end demonology in most fantasy settings that deal with that, we can't assume this one's any different, and we can't trust him to be completely as he appears.
>>
>>4337226
>swearing to a minor primordial elemental of something obscure like smoke or slag, or a subset of a more major element like ice or steam could be cool
Really just an easy way of improving how much put back to the party and stand up to high-flying anime +S-Tier adventurers at a relatively minor immediate risk for the sake of ruinous long-term implications. There's no need to and normally I wouldn't go ahead with it as the gladitorial skillset is already nice as hell as is, but both of the blessings I have are on an imminent time-limit and if there's a time to do it, now's the best opportunity I'm likely to ever have.

I wanted to get some information on demonology in the setting so I can start working toward a Warlock class, I readily admit I shit the bed and I'll lie in it, but I don't know what reason Ayame had to take the risk and then try to bail on a MAGIC CONTRACT by shapeshifting into a different form. I figure there's decent odds some of my knowledge of occultism is transferable to the setting, in which case I'd know some things that he doesn't, which gives me some limited leeway because he seeks knowledge and should know better than anyone how much damage imprecise, or almost-perfect sigilism or incantations can be. *Researching* this was a sporadic hobby of mine that I pursued with frenzied intensity a year back, the kabylion, goetia, etc. It's retarded all-around and I really should've abstained from signing the contract but the allure of esoteric lore beckoned.
>>
>>4337394
About a year and a half back, I mean. There's a dense volume of literature several centuries in the writing, some of it contradictory, most of it obscure for very good reason. A lot deeper than /x/ and more than most would-be diabolists/sorcerers would've had access to, even if the interest was solely academic, it was an obsession and seems logical to pin that at High. As I said some four times earlier though, Wisdom is one thing I lack. Religious texts too, the catholic version of the Bible, the Sutras, the Vedas, even Ron L Hubbard's writings.

Why did you ask for knowledge of top players in the city? That would he pretty common knowledge and you could easily get some shmuck at the guild to tell you. This demonolgist might know a bit more, but is it really worth being sold into slavery? I would kinda get the sigil thing if you asked about somthing power like a philsophers stone or an intricate web of sigil that inmate a warlocks powers. But you throw it as an off hand comment and didn't even ask anything that specific.

We are not singing the sing yet.
>>
>>4337426
I'll be straight with you, I wanted to swap riddles and see if we could trade knowledge on sigils while cloaking a controversial question in a double-bluff so he'd realise I had a more solid handle on the double-meanings that are rife in that shit than most adventurers that try to contact him, someone worth having as a contact. The actual information was secondary to the impression but after it was no-sold, I figure asking for knowledge of the most even-tempered and farsighted pact-binding entity he's aware of's sigil would be a better question because sigils like that are generally extremely valuable to those who're aware of them. I know *how* to make a summoning circle given the requisite materials, set up wards, make an attempt at invoking an entity, I'm not aware of any sigils relevant to this world and that's my biggest limiting factor, because as is, any summoning attempt would be random, which could be catastrophic. Trying to play 4D chess when I can't see the other side of the board, was bound to end poorly in hindsight. Cat's still not out of the bag yet, not 100% certain how this'll turn out but I guess I'll be learning some more one way or another. Again I stress, I'm a brainlet that got myself into this situation, and I can work to get myself out, the rest of you should try and grind the adventurer's guild while I try to glean what I can because anime-tropes dictate that since I'm an Isekai-victim and not a qt 3.14 elf or some shit, an opportunity for escape is likely to arise eventually. That aside, a mind-controlled assistant that knows what he's doing is a solid asset for a demonologist because they're prone to hoarding secrets and those who have some understanding are generally too paranoid to fall for a trick that basic, and this is just the command-type enslavement, not the personality override sort so I'll probably be able to retain my memories. And of course, there's the bonuses I can break out to try and negotiate if the riddle game goes south.

>I've heard girls here in lower quarter have been missing
The keeper gets very emotional.

"Yes. The neighborhood has always been unsafe, but it's been worse, lately. My own daughter, Clarisse, has been missing for several days! I fear for the worse. She's such a gentle, innocent girl. I wish I could have raised her in a better country. Are you here to investigate? Have you been sent by the Adventurer's Guild? Be careful who you talk to, if you don't want to end up with a sliced throat."

>How much is the room for the night?
"You can sleep in the common room's hay for 1 copper."

(Mark wanted to rehearse his song with Squiddly, but Squiddly is not there, he's at the Adventurer's Guild.)

Squiddly re-enters the guild hall and walks to the assistant's desk.

>my party "leader" is a dick
"That's not a good thing to speak about your party leader like that! If you knew how difficult it is to lead, you would not speak like that! Your leader is probably very worried about everyone's safety!"

"Shi Taberu Hito is obviously an elven name. In their language, Shi Taberu Hito, meaning the Death Eater in the common language, is made of five runes: 死食べる人. Thus, the second of his five runes is the second rune: 食. This is the elven rune for the word shoku, food in the elven language. Of course, this riddle required understanding Shi's name, which few people would, so that is why I called the riddle particularly difficult."

「Charm Person」Shi's magical threads leave his fingertips and reach the orifices of his slave. A now familiar sensation violates her mental space. She's euphoric and willing to do her best to please her master, unlike in normal times where she wishes for his slow, painful death.

Shi says "Start chocking yourself you stupid bitch and don't stop until you pass out."

Abigail answers "I want to please you and do things for you, but I don't want to get hurt. I don't even think it's possible for someone to choke themselves."

Charm Person: "An affected creature never obeys suicidal or obviously harmful orders"

His opponent laughs.

"I have to say, you almost had me there. You must not be very good if your slave refuses to follow such a simple command. Now, I will show you how it's done."

"ZAELHYA!" he calls with an impossibly powerful voice.

An incredibly beautiful, purple-haired woman appears in the room, in a puff of smoke. She has little horns, bat wings, and a beautiful, most innocent face. She's eating sweets, which she holds from the tip of her fingers.

"Our guest here claims that haunting people's dream is his specific skillset."

He points to Wade.

"Why don't you show him how wrong he is?"

The woman moves toward Wade, moving her hips sensually. She moves her hand above his eyes and whispers seductively in his ear:

"Fall asleep, don't resist... I will show you pleasures no mortal has ever dreamed off... You will become a king among men... You are mine!"

Nothing happens. As Wade has explained previously, he's immune to such thottery. The demonologist clears his throat.

"Anyway. I reject your claims, on the basis that the contract was broken. We are not magically bound to anything to each other, and I'm not obligated to answer your question. However, I'm not a cruel man, so I propose a new game to you."

THE HUNT
>1) The participant has three days to kill Solana, mistress of the local Kek's Adventurer's Guild.
>2) For each supplementary member of the guild killed, he will earned "good boy points".
>3) The two new slaves will be allowed to help him in the game, but they must return to the demonologist's mansion each day before dusk. If they don't return, the slave collar with kill them.
>4) If the participant succeeds, he will earn either a) freedom for one of the two slaves; b) an answer to any question, that the demonologist will answer to the best of his knowledge.

The demonologist summons a magical contract and a quill that will bind them to the game. If signed, the participant will be bound by the rules. If he loses, he will be magically forced to wear a slave collar that puts him under control of the demonologist.

"I have understated you haven't I." She said to him in a fake frighted tone. "I didn't think you would be able to summon more than a scarp demon, but even though she failed to catch Wade-kun, I don't have any doubt that she could catch stronger men with weaker sexual willpower. You see my friend is married and also a total catch for most women so he has practice. You see I feel life force energy and I know how to turn off this power and did so because my friends are so strong. When Wade was in danger I turned it back on to see what monster I was facing and man I'm still scared."

She pretends to quake in fear.

"I see now you are even stronger than all of my team, much more worthy than my cowardly guild so I ask.." She bows. "How may I serve you? I have experience in cleaning and cooking. I can also recruit more help for you as well. What should I address you as? Also get me new clothes please."

「Honkler」(As pictured:) Mark exhales his bad breath on the tavern keeper, and makes him faint.

There are mendicants and prostitutes everywhere in the Lower Ward, and at least one brothel in every street. In front of the tavern is the "Treasure Chest" brothel where the prostitutes wear special jewellry on the breast.

>OP the mage taught the circle of protection right?
Actually, he didn't. He only taught you the song.

>Honkler: Mark gains a +2 protection bonus against charm and seduction, for 2 rounds.

>>4338057
>Trust me, had you met him you’d have the same opinion of him. I know that leading is difficult and stressing but that is no excuse to his behaviors towards anything and everyone both inside and outside of his party

"How shameful! If he's as bad as you say then you should kill him. Bad-mouthing your leader won't accomplish anything but make you look like a resentful loser! The resentment is dark energy, it's going to eat you alive and make your flesh rot. You are on the path of transforming into a shill or a demon and I'm not condoning it!"

Squiddly leaves, so as not to damage his reputation further. He wants to look for Mark, but he has no idea where the clown went. He walks the street aimlessly, looking for injured or sick people to perform healing miracles on them.

Down the street, he finds two persons fighting, he doesn't why. One is a brown bear, the other is a dwarf with a black beard. The bear is clearly winning the fight, and he's kicking the dwarf who's lying on the floor and cursing in the Scottish language. The wee man's face looks all bloody and he probably has one or two broken bone from the beating the bear gave him. When the bear is done beating his enemy, he calls him a faggot and leaves. The bear is part of the beastman race, they are known to be violent. How can such a cute, fluffy creature be so violent, that is unknown.

>>4338211
Wade-kun speaks.

>I've been able to achieve lucidity in the realm of sleep for almost six years
The demonologist claps his hands again.


"How fascinating! I would love to hear about your most interesting lucid travel and also, tell me, what are your current dream objectives? I'm not disappointed."

Ayame reveals that she, too, is a psychonaut. Well, that is not surprising there are so many refined people in a high level adventuring party. The demonologist asks her the same question.

>Are you partial to cobbler?
"Cobbler? Absolutely not. I'm a gourmet and I despise Western food. I will only eat the best dishes from the Shuji Empire."
>>
>>4338854

Zaelhia intervenes.

"I love everything sweet, I'd love to taste your cobbler. If it's as good as you are handsome then I can't wait for it. I have to admit that I've got the hots for you since you resisted me. I despise man-sluts and weak faggots but you are neither. Follow me, Wade-kun."

She shows him the kitchen. There's everything for him to work with: various tools, knives, pans and a steam-powered oven. The succubus says that she will summon all the ingredients that he needs but preferably the cobbler would have one quarter of each type: peach, apple, orange and plum. There are also two maids who can assist him in his tasks.

Wade

>You see I feel life force energy and I know how to turn off this power and did so because my friends are so strong. When Wade was in danger I turned it back on to see what monster I was facing and man I'm still scared.
"I have no doubt that you are powerful. It's pretty obvious that you are all foreign adventurers or mercenaries. I would not make the mistake of underestimating you. I did take it as an opportunity for you to accomplish a few essential missions for me. This is a risk that I'm taking."

>How may I serve you? I have experience in cleaning and cooking. I can also recruit more help for you as well
"Hmm... " His eyes look down while he's thinking. "That would be fantastic if you could recruit an undead army for me. You see, one can never fully trust living slaves. But with an undead army, I would become much more powerful. Of course, it's not easy, so regular living recruits would be good."

>What should I address you as?
"You can address me as Master Egéphiar."

>Also get me new clothes please.
"What clothes do you want? I do not have a standard uniform for my slaves. That would be unoriginal and boring. I can summon any sort of clothes for you with my magic; the most important is that you feel comfortable while doing the recruitment work."

>>4338122
>I would accept this contract, but I have two conditions
"Your conditions are reasonable and I accept them. I see that you are a thoughtful man. It looks like you will easily beat this little game.

Solana is a priestess of the god Hermes. She's a great adventurer who has travelled around the world and beaten many quests and dungeons. She has a reputation of being incredibly lucky and she always wins. For all of this reasons, it's also incredibly bad for business to have her lead the Adventurer's Guild. You can't do anything even remotely 'evil' (he air-quotes) without her sending adventurers to interrupt your plans. That is remarkably out of character for Visea, which is a corrupt and polluted town in the middle of a little 'idyllic' empire. I'm hoping that her second-in-hand takes the lead of the guild, because he's on my payroll. The adventurers can keep going on their little quests for all I care, but at least they won't intefere with my business anymore."
>>
>>4338854

The demonologist shouts "DISGUISE OTHER".

Shi becomes all malleable. His body changes form, stretching a cheek here, a limb there, until he takes his final form. He now looks like a rich merchant from the desert empires, with white silk clothes and curly shoes. In terms of facial appearance, he looks the same as usual, but fatter and with a thick beard and eyebrows.

「Random Event / PC Negative」Abigail requests to stay in the mansion to assist Wade-kun with cooking. The demonologist accepts.

「Shadow Step」Shi tries to cast the spell Shadow Step to travel through the shadows and reach his destination faster. He tears up the fabric of reality until a dimensional tunnel opens through the Plane of Shadow. A shadow mastiff jumps out of it, with shadow poison dripping out of its mouth, with the opening behind him closing down.

The succubus reacts quickly to the threat. She takes out her whip and slashes the beast, which disintegrates into nothingness. The demonologist claps his hand.

"Well done, Zaelhya. I can always count on your efficiency."

Shi the merchant walks back to the guild. Due to his rich attires, he attracts a lot of unwanted attention from the mendicants, but he ignores them. He goes to the green-haired maid's counter and asks where he can meet Solana. She answers that Solana lives at the top floor of the guild. If he has matters of regional or national importance, he can make an appointment with her. But if he just wants to submit a quest, he can submit it to the maid, he doesn't need to meet the guild leader for that. She seems a bit standoffish, she probably doesn't like merchants.

Shi
>Edgelord bonus: Shi has been very edgy in dialogue and accumulated a lot of power. He gains a +2 RS bonus to the next spell that he casts. The bonus disappears after 3 turns if unused.
>>
>>4338860
Shadow Step isn't a spell it's an ability part of the edge lord cheat.


Edgelord: You can teleport behind your foes, summon dual desert eagles/uzis at your discretion, and drain life force to regenerate or fuel your attacks when you cut someone. You can also cut yourself and reabsorb it at an equal ratio. Forbidden sorcery comes twice as easily and malign entities see you as their equivalent and take you seriously, for good or ill. This comes at the cost of a gravelly voice, deep dislike of daylight, and the permanent fixation to wear a trenchcoat and dark-tinted sunglasses, which you can summon at will. If your dialogue is sufficiently edgy, you may receive a bonus to any given roll.

Forbidden sorcery is magic so vile all sorcerers have agree to not research or teach it because it is blasphemous to all life. For that part I will not speak about it because it is taboo and secret. Lovecraftian spells also fall in the category of forbidden sorcery. Unspeakable Oath is an example, pic.

Can you give me some examples of weak entities from the Lovecraftian mythos?

>>4338251
True, power by belief is an extremely common trope in Isekai settings, not to mention modern fantasy in general. I'm not frustrated with the outcome of the riddle by any means, I just think it's hysterical to imagine there was probably a similar argument about how the riddle alluded to something artificial as opposed to natural, but I realize if it was created by a deity, it would by definition be natural, yet made, ergo sunlight is the most obvious response. An unfortunate lapse on my end but it could be worse. He could've insisted on the piercings/ritual scarification that's common with these but hasn't, I suspect he's restraining the depths of what he has in store for if Shi's assassination attempt isn't successful because he can't be sure that he won't ask for one of us back. I have a handful of convoluted plans for how I might be able to escape, not all of them mutually exclusive, and one's already underway.

>>4338375
On my end it's because I noticed the succubus has a sweet tooth and that's something I can exploit. Beside the fact that it's hilarious that a succubus was no-sold by a random C-Tier adventurer, these sorts of seductresses aren't used to being told no, and that means she only wants me more. Those are two pieces of leverage I can use, and while I knew she'd be interested in the cobbler, asking the succubus directly would make it seem she getting through to me and encourage her to relax and rely on her magic, but by asking the demonologist, I set him at ease and gave a signal for the succubus to expose herself in the one area where I have an undisputed advantage: The preparation of deserts. It's unfortunate that I couldn't get a chance to hide the knife but that's only part of a single plan and I have decent odds at finding an opportunity to slip behind a corner somewhere. Of course, if I'm caught by magic surveillance, that only confirms that I'm as paranoid as a forbidden loreseeker should be and improve his attitude of my competence, raising the odds of him insisting on my assistance significantly, which will go exponentially when I feed his ego by claiming I don't think a novice'd be much help to an experienced summoner, simultaneously lowering the threat level he perceives me as being, which grants me a host of opportunities. Or if the knife goes unfound, I can follow another plan if the current one seems untenable, or leave it if not. This is all according to keikaku.

It occured to me that it's probably spooky as fuck for inquisitors to hear about a sudden ghoul infestation. One on hand, there's a 99.9% chance it's regular necromancers, vampires, and cannibals fucking around and can be left to less specialized professionals, but on the other, there's a 0.1% chance the physical reality of everyone and everything in a hundred leagues is in grave danger if it's allowed to grow. The problem is it's almost impossible for the average person to tell the difference between the two until it's too late.

>>4339076
>>4339091
Forbidden magic is cool as fuck, the Shadow of the Demon Lord table system is chock-full of great examples, including one that more or less destroys an entire region in the most terrifying ways possible and either lifts the caster's soul straight to !not!heaven or the lowest pits of !not!hell depending on whether they can justify their use of the spell to a divine cour, when they finish attempting to cast the spell, no save, it's a foregone conclusion that they're a dead man walking once the week-long, continuous rite starts to pass their lips. I forget what it's called since it's been months since I read the book but the gist of it was kind of an eldritch spin on the biblical plagues of egypt, which was cool.

Finding lucidity in sleep started as more of a hobby than a serious endeavour, and I'm no master of the art, I'd consider myself to have a low skill level at traversing the dreamscape if anything, but I've had a decent handful of journeys and if you want to hear I'd be happy to share their tales.

Cultural Hierarchy in the Isekai

This hierarchy is based on my understanding of Kek and 4chan, which are both inseparable from each other.

The Japanese culture is considered supreme in the Isekai lands. The reason is that 4chan is a Japanese imageboard. The common tongue is English, as in 4chan, and only the most educated people can read Japanese kanji. East Asians are also considered the most beautiful human race and gain secret bonuses to social skills when they travel to European nations such as the Empire of Tyria. They are the only race to benefit from secret bonuses.

At the other end of the racial hierarchy is the Jewish race. This is based on Le Happy Merchant meme. Their Babylonian magic and commerce have proven to be too destructive, and they are fiercely hunted down by Kek's Adventurer's Guild. Jews are considered a tier 1 menace, the same as demons. Ther are possibly a hybrid race of demons and humans.

The racial distribution is as follow:
1) The Eastern continent has an Asian majority
2) The Western continent has an European majority
3) The Northern continent is a mix of Asian and European
4) The Southern continent has a Semitic majority

The Southern continent obviously is a continent of nightmare. Kek only ever teleport cucks and whores over there. Surviving the Southern continent is their last chance for character growth, but more often than not, they get castrated or die.

At the lowest of all are the NPCs, as in the NPC meme. They simply cannot reincarnate in the Isekai, even if they were members of 4chan. The reason is that NPCs have no soul, thus cannot reincarnate.

「Heal」Squiddly tries to heal the injured dwarf, but his magic only creates a small sparkle of dark energy and fizzles.

At first, Squiddly feels that he's suffering from bad luck >>4339002, but then he gets the feeling that his god, Kek, does not approve of healing the dwarf. He doesn't understand why, though.

> Please, would you mind telling me why you were fighting a fucking beastfolk
"The bear attacked me fur mah faith!"

He shows his golden pendant, which represents the face of an ominous goat on an inversed pentagram.

「Knowledge (Occultism)」The young priest recognizes that this is a Baphomet pendant.Baphomet is a symbol used in occult traditions as a general symbol of evil.

"A'm a jeweler 'n' a honest worshipper o' Mammon. Bit this doesn't gang weel wi' some fowk. Th' non dwarf fowk hate us fur na reason, 'tis a pain in th' bahookie tae be a travelling merchant, sometimes. Dinnae git me wrong, a'm not saying that a' humans ur bad. Th' bear threw me some coins 'n' said: 'that's fur ye, faggot'. Obviously, an allusion tae Mammon, th' god o' dosh. That didnae bore weel wi' me, 'n' ah attacked him."

Squiddly inspect the dwarf. Other than the golden pendant, it's obvious that he's a wealthy person, perhaps someone important, even. The clothes he wears are fine, and he's perfectly groomed, like a noble.

「Minor Illusion」Mark uses his clown magic to cast the illusion of a rising pink smoke, indicating his position to all friends and foes in a one to two kilometer radius.

He then enters the whorehouse "Treasure Chest". The place is filthy and decorated with fake treasure chests, with gold made of wood painted in yellow. The stench of body odor and fluids is unbearable. He applies for a job position, but the matron politely rejects him, despite his many talents, because they only recruit women and have no need for a male entertainer.

>>4339589
「Greater Invisibility」Shi-kun goes back to street, and turns invisible.

「Shadow Step (Edgelord)」As he intents to attack the guild leader, all of the guild members have now been defined as his foes. Therefore, Shi can use the technique he dubbed "Shadow Step" and reach very quickly the top floor of the guild in only one second. On his path, he saw Emiya on her chair in the study room, she has fainted because he kissed her and she still hasn't recovered her senses.

Shi ends his teleportation path before the guild master's doors. It is closed and he can't teleport futher because he can't see and he doesn't even know if there's someone behind.

>Greater Invisibility: The invisibility lasts for one minute; doesn't wear off if he does anything, including speaking or attacking others. 59 seconds remaining.

Wade speaks to to warlock:

>My current objective is to solidify my grasp of subconscious imagery, I'm able to induce change easily, making it stick is the problem.
"This is an interesting one, certainly. You see, the Plane of Dream is highly morphic, it cannot remain in a stabilized state except in rare nexus of stability created by the gathering of many dreamers at the same spot. Your best bet is to pull imagery from the collective subconscious and share someone else's dream telepathically, so that you can stabilize the manifestation together."

Ayame says:

>Master Egephiar! You are so so wonderful!
Egéphiar gloats. "I know, I know. Thanks for reminding me."

He summons paper and markers so that the druidess can draw the outfit she requires for her work. Egéphiar grabs the paper. "That looks like a standard outfit, I will try my best to summon it."

A witch hat with a ribbon, a haute couture gothic dress, thigh high socks with diamond cut-outs, a strapless bra, a purple zombie scarf, witch platform boots and a bag appear before her in a pile.

>Where can find the dead people? I can make Solana and the guild members slaves too.
"What!!! You could do that?"

He loses his calm demeanor.

"If you enslaved Solana, I would not only release your collar, but also reward you greatly. You see, Solana and I have a long history. I want her to die, but if she could be my slave, that would be even better. Long story short, she has crushed me as a person and sent me on a long road of insanity and self-destruction.

As for dead people, you can mass murder people or find fresh bodies at the morgue or the cemetary."

>By the way, you said to me we were all powerful people. Do we all have random powers that we don't about know about? How do you find out?
"I don't know anything specific about you other than you have a very powerful aura."

>Can Wade-kun be like that? He's a pretty situational guy? Thank you anyways
"I got the impression that Wade-kun is powerful, too. Why are you asking, is he your weakest party member? He can resist a succubus naturally, I've never seen that happen without protection charms. He also gives the impression of being a 4D chess player, and to be quite honest, I would fear him if I wasn't playing on a 5D level.

Now, I will go on a business trip for a few days, if you have other needs you can ask Barbatos, here. I will grant him limited admin access to your slave collar. You can drink the rest of the wine, if you want."

Barbatos, the old man who was playing chess against him, bows and thanks him.

Wade begins his delicare cooking mission. Zaelhya shows him where he can find a teaspoon, measure cup and bowls in the kitchen, and she summons bags of sugar and flour, as required. Zaelhya can't help much more, because she's too busy ogling him, whereas Abigail is just sitting in a corner and napping. She used Wade as an excuse to ditch Shi, but she has no plan to do any work.

(Wade hasn't had enough time yet to finish the cobbler.)

Did you try checking the Shadow of the Demon Lord general on /tg/? They have a link to the trove there.

>>4339724
I should clarify the whole rod and reel thing, I don't know what it is or why it happens, but when I sign on to start working somewhere or start meeting the friends of my friends, eight times out of ten, by the end of the month there'll be someone trying to get in my pants. I'm not proud of that and don't know what it is they see that's worth chasing, but I don't care any more about women than I do men if I'm not trying to get into a long-term relationship and getting /r9k/ is my last intention but something about that seems to drive about one in eight women crazy, like they need to prove something. I don't ever tell that I'm looking for a relationship and then string them along like a faggot, I just leave it up in the air whether or not I am until they drop the passive-aggressive hints to ask me, then I tell them outright. Something about the unspoken ambiguity is deeply satisfying to me and the longest I've kept it up is two and a half months. I'm not remotely "chad" or some kind of casanova and not bragging about it, it's pretty shameful and rarely happens more than four or five times a year, I just wanted to clarify the vague wording there.

This is about as meme-tier as a setting can get, but the sheer openness is interesting. I feel sorry for William, he truly had what it took to be a Hero.

>>4340339
FUCK NO. When I'm lucid dreaming, everything changes when I'm not focused on it, which makes constructing broader narratives difficult. Nothing to do with Tulpa, that's a bad idea and effects everyone involved so badly I would consider it low end forbidden sorcery. My current goal is to get my dreams stable and achieve lucidity three days a week. I don't know if that's possible but it feels like I'm making an improvement.

>>4340341
It's extremely unfortunate that it's gotten so popular recently, I've heard more bad ends or regrets than actual successes and even then, a constant hallucination can't be healthy. I can see why someone would do that though and I don't judge, I just wouldn't recommend it.
>>
>>4340566
>I would consider it low end forbidden sorcery.
you guys should have seen /tul/ when it still existed. And it's not getting popular, the discord is under 2000 people
>>
>>4340587
I spent a week skimming through the desuarchives back when I was curious about tulpamancy and what I saw was enough to convince me to stay away. It's about as popular as wiccanism in my town, there was a brief fad of half a dozen people but as far as I know nothing serious ever came of it. That's pretty huge compared to most esoteric shit but it's completely anecdotal and not remotely representative of any broader trend.
>>
>>4340566
>I'm not proud of that and don't know what it is they see that's worth chasing
If it can't be explained then it can only be explained with an /x/ theory.

If a lot of women behave like succubi, it's because they are. There are a lot of empty people, and they can be piloted by demons.
>>
>>4340566
It's not that hard of a concept. People and women, in general, want what they can't have. If you beg for her pussy your not going to get it because you showing yourself to be below her. If you ignore her initial advances and signs she’ll see you as a prize something she would have to work for, showing your value. Younger women also tend to be more desperate, because if they can’t get a man they want at their prime, what does that say about their future when they hit the wall.
>>
>>4340669
I think they were trying to get me to validate their insecurity or get their boyfriend jealous, or got obsessed when I demonstrated I didn't see them in a sexual light or anything to prioritize getting involved with over what I was already trying to do there. It's not that I'm a great option for the dating scene, I think it's that I wasn't, and some people can't handle the idea that it's not aggressively off-limits, but just doesn't see a reason to care. It's a complicated feel and I don't think the phenomenon's due to any lack of consciousness or demonic possession, just mundane thottery and a subtle refusal to participate. I'm not trying to moralfag or grandstand, but casual sex just feels like a perversion of the intimacy that making love should be, to me. The temptation to indulge outside of a long-term relationship is there but there's no appeal.

>>4340706
Those are my thoughts on it. There's probably a metric fuckton of /fit/ anons that have the same issue and the dynamic is too intuitive for me to assume I'm the only one that's in a similar situation. It's bizarre because it's an inversion of the usual gender assumption, men pursuing a woman that isn't interested, and I don't want to get /pol/, but I think that's symptomatic of the skewed society we're in. Maybe it's just the cobbler though.
>>
>>4340723
There's a good reason for that, sex is supposed to be sacred the more partners you have the more your marital happiness decreases, and the more your chance of divorce increases.

"THANK U MASTA!" Screamed the zombie.
"Who r u?!"
Ayame smiled. "I am Ayame the Kawaii Reaper! Master of Life and Death! I was trained by the greatest of shinigami the multi verse fucking has or will ever have! I murdered over 444,444 souls in my short life! You will call me Master Ayame. I want to practice my magic powers here and get some loot! You were robbed right?" He nods. She heals him and gives him a strength and speed boost. "I want you to get a job for me cause I want money. Get out of here, steal nice clothes for your self.." She creates a wooden bucket with lemon juice. "..steal a soap bar, wash yourself in private and find a simple job. Act normal. Report here at sundown."

She turned to the hobos! "Hello fags! The Kawaii Reaper as stepped on the scene! Thunder Cloud!" A roaring gray cloud appeared and lightening sprang. It was a murder party! It's an improvement over the sad state that they where in before at least! (she isn't the starving type)
After the first storm Ayame made a happy normal cloud that turned into a shockie cloud after frying hobos turned into a normal cloud again.
Ayame went to the corpse pile to loot them hoping to find cash. (say none if this an action) None of their knifes were good so she summoned a sharp wooden katana and chopped a hobo's head off. (if she failed she tries a bat..)
BOOM! A pink fog cloud came into view in town. It must be a fun event. She will go over later. She wants to find that cat too!

After walking back to the guild, Ayame walks in to eavesdrop on adventurers to see if any will go to the forest. Seems like a few are. There's this chad and stacy gang that she wants dead anyway that she's going to keep her eye on.
>"Even in this world normies only talk about sportsball and talumudvision. The are even drinking coffee from the guild's Starbucks!"

Done eating her orange she walked to the morgue.
