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

You are not just in the Royal Guard you are the princesses’ own bodyguard. This comes with it’s a fair few bonuses like access to the castle to look at all the wonders they have collected, an amazing room and a beautiful ward. Shame her personality doesn’t match the artistry of her form. While the venom that she spits is far from pleasant you’ve had much worse as a child from deviants who spend all their earnings at the whore house. But being here isn’t just about the pay, the room and comfort it is about the connections you can form. By showing your strength to the right people and telling them what they want to hear you know you can get a good future. One with a title and some land to retire to after you’ve finished your heroics to settle. But the fire of youth still burns bright in your veins, you still need action.

>Guard Rank: ANT
>Congratulations, the Princess isn't completely disgusted with you! You're a lowly Ant, which is one level above Worm!
>She still doesn't like you, though.
>Or see you as an actual person.

You are in the tunnel again. Darkness prevalent, draping itself over all around you. Here you do not need to see in this is your realm, you feel all. You feel every scar wrought into the stone wall by time and the path carved onwards. You feel something moving, something that is more than a defilement of flesh. It is the calamity. Its features are more than grotesque it is impossible; you draw you mind away from the perversion life and run.

Which way was it out? Your vision extends in the darkness rushing outwards like an animal trying to claw a way free but it finds no sanctuary. But you must keep running, faster, you must run faster. The exploration of its form told you that death by its hands would dirty your soul and condemn it along with the creatures’. You can feel it again. It’s coming closer; your desperate scrambling has alerted it.

That dream, no it is not worth thinking about, you did enough of that in your sleep. Must get on with the day. Eyes’ lazily searching for the clock and seeing it is 7 am. You’ve got time her seclude starts at 8.

After a brief stretch when you decide to cleanse yourself of the sweat acquired form you less than pleasant dreams. Cheerfully you give off a grunt finding the water that embraces you is warm unlike many mornings of the past.

Wiping the water off your athletic body and see you have time to spare before meeting the princess outside her room.

You sit back down upon your bed, hand outstretched. Summoning the darkness around the room into your hand. Remember the time when you discovered your gift, all around you was night as you could not only see perfectly you could also feel it. Since then you’ve been practicing your gift to make sure it only gets stronger. Now you can increase the darkness that is there and shape it albeit poorly. Shadows can be turned into poor blades and weak hammers; you can also create a fragile tendril.

These powers were first gifted to humanity after the Elder Creators decided they would have a select few human enforce their will. Each generation’s limits are decreased the further they are down the line they are from the original. Being able to shape means you are classed as a level two of the five, therefore you must be within thirteen generations. Not knowing who you parents were only increases your curiosity about your powers and its limits.

Out of the darkness you draw a small sculpture of a female’s body. Next you try to make copy of the castle. It is crude and filled with imperfections but one day you will be able to do so much better. With that darkness flows from the image to the places you’ve ripped it from.

Now you need to go to Marianne, being late escorting her to breakfast certainly won’t do yourself any favours when dealing with her.

Arriving 15 minutes early before her door seems ideal. Not earlier enough where you seem to be salivating to be around her but also not so tardy to imply you do not care about her. Maybe she slept well and will treat more of civility for it? No that is a fool’s hope.

Emerging from the royal doors is the princess in all her splendour trailed by three maids either side of her. Much like a wedge formation of knights, she leads them cutting a regal path towards you. She is wearing no look of disappointment, fatigue or guilt. Maybe she really will be better today?

“Well it’s nice to see you are on time. Not that it’s a hard feat.”

“Well come on.” She signals you to follow whilst you were trying to supress a scowl. To think she calls you like a dog. After everything you’ve been thought to get here, no she is the heir to the nation, you can’t get angry at her of all people. The king and his knights would have you strung up for upsetting his darling. You’ve heard how protective he is about here after losing his wife. She is his greatest and most delicate treasure.

Entering the room you are led to you see with the sight of a large wooden label big enough to feed a platoon. Covered by a mainly plain but still obviously expensive red table cloth with a gold spiral rolling inwards. On top of the cloth are pastries, meats and fruits but most importantly are on the closest corner of the table. A platter of filled with arm sized turkey legs.

Watching her delicately eating the food off her plate does nothing to you. No, your pain comes from the smell of turkey legs wafting toward you, filling your mind with one desire. If only the princess wasn’t here and then you’d be able to tear into them, shredding flesh from bone in a glorious consumption. AND SHE IS EATING SO SLOWLY! You calm yourself with some steady breathing and try to ignore the lack of food you have in your stomach.

“Reinhold I’m trying to eat please stop that snorting or mediating or whatever you are doing. It’s far from polite.”

Ok, maybe you are being overly sensitive; you’ve gone days before without food whilst on the march. This is nothing and you are being a baby. With your mind newly steeled you ignore your desire and try to the belly rumbles. You really should have ate before meeting her and playing with magic.

As Marianne finishes her meal she gives a coy smile at as you offer her you hand up, “Thank you, Reinhold. I didn’t know you already ate. Next time I’ll tell them to cook less when we come tomorrow. I hope you’ve not eaten too much that it’s upset you stomach.” She knew.

With that done its lesson time.

Only being schooled by tavern talk and the whore house owner has left your education lacking. You can read and write which is better than most but you still are far off from being learned. It being history could be very useful when thinking about courtly matters and intrigue which in turn is important to think about when guarding the princess.

Entering the room you are greeted by the sight of Sir Gregory and a board which he will presumably write on. Being in the army and seeing him do his thing taught you to not fuck with him, you’ve seen him once before go to work on some brigands, it wasn’t pretty. His red eyes dart to you after seeing the princess enter. Sizing you up, again. You felt his eyes on you when you won the tournament but now he has taken more of an interest.

“Greeting Princess Marianne I trust you are having a good morning and are ready for studies?” He asks with a grimace on her face. Clearly she must not get on with him too, you wonder if she get on with anyone or even has friends. No one you’ve met has said anything positive about the person she is under her looks.

“The morning has been satisfactory.” She responds with an uncaring reply wanting all pleasantries to cease so the lesson can finish up as soon as possible.

Blond hair bounces as he gives you a smile and a nod. It could be in recognition of your plight having to keep her company or simply being polite.

You walk to two desks both with a single seat behind them. Marianne takes one and you sit down at the other. Two books are place on the desk. One a history book, no doubt to be used to supplement the lesson and the other is a notepad.
>>
“Reinhold, it is nice to meet you. Today we will be learning about recent history of Granache, you are very welcome to join in the lesson or do you own thing as long as Marianne isn’t disturbed.” Sir Gregory informs you.

This is a rare opportunity to learn on the job, after all the hard work you’ve been through it’d too late for you to fall into sloth. It could be interesting; you did love those tales of the heroes of old as a child cutting out their kingdoms as their gods commanded them. Maybe it’ll be a more interesting topic today rather than trade deals or the like. It would also be very rude to decline his offer and you don’t want to get on his wrong side.

“Today we will be looking at the End of the War of the Inner Kingdoms” Gregory states with his full attention to Marianne. “I shall read an extract of your grandfathers’ thoughts 27 years ago in respect to losing the war.”

“When I look back, I have only once feeling. This is a huge regret. Regret that we have not succeeded. That we were not able to create this Sasainn world. That would have been the masters of the universe forever. Which would have provided to the Sasainn people, the first place.

And when we see what there is before us, what thirty years of victory of the others has done. This Anarchy in the world. The collapsing of the Sasainn race, this desertion throughout the universe. When we see in our own countries the breakdown of civilisation. The fall of the homeland, the fall of our family. The collapse of social order. When we see the forests grow and strangle our villages.

This wandering for our purpose forced upon our people by the victors, has replaced the great flame that animated us so.

We see through their victory of the two sides we chose the correct path. This world the polished by the victors can not give us happiness; we smell the corpse stench over the visage that they paint in vibrant colours. Our people are governed by those who are not of their blood and hold no love for them in their heart. They are forced in foreign lands rather than be allowed to be one people united together.

The winner’s edicts leave humanity core rotting instead of elevating it. So the rest of us at least, we have dreamed of something marvellous and only have one desire. That our spirit can be reborn and our people can be united. And with all of my strength, until the last moment of my life I will fight for this. For what was our fight and our martyrdom shall be one day be The Resurrection!”
>>
Gregory recounting the speech is clearly very absorbed into it and glancing over at Marianne she is too. Her full attention is directed at him, none of the animosity she felt earlier for him held place in her eyes only wonder remain. You know the country has been shamed and the people and borders have been divided and granted to the victors, but you didn’t know how much the nobility wish to gather their people together and unite them. Personally you thought they were only words to give a fake image to the people that they care for them. You should have been more charitable to them.

The lesson wraps up with your teacher explaining the population and border changes for the rest. You’ve never been a numbers guy so you zone out.

Leaving the class the Princess’ face is now back to the stern image of beauty. Clearly the spell has now worn off and she is her usual scornful self. You enter another room, much larger than Gregory. This isn’t a normal room it is a minor hall with hardwood encompassing the floor and containing a single woman of considerable age. Without a doubt she spends much time in the mornings to look as graceful as one of such age can and it works.

“Hello Princess Marianne” She curtsies to her.

Then she turns to you “I remember you mister Reinhold, you footwork in the tournament was marvellous. You know you could be an excellent dancer if you put half that much effort in as you do to your swordplay. How glad I am to see that you brining Marianne here. It’ll be good to see what I can do with the both of you.”

Running a hand through your hair you reply, “Thank you errr…. Sorry I didn’t catch your name”

“I didn’t give it dear, it’s Pauline and you must assist in today’s lesson. You do want to help the princess with her studies right?”

She’s got you there, can you refuse after that?

Way I'm doing things is a 1 takes away a success and a 20 is two success. So you you guys rolled a 20, 4 and 17 for a DC of 12 you get 3 successes. Right now it doesn't matter so much.

“Well…. Sure I’ll help I guess.”

With surprising speed she grabs your hand and pulls you towards. One arm grappling your waist the other your hand. You are sure a panic look crossed your face; it is all but confirmed by the sweet giggle coming from the blue eyed princess. With that she takes you around the room in a swift gallop like thing. You don’t know what it is called you’ve never danced before. Feelings quite lost you try to match her tempo and pace to a limited degree of success. Very limited.

Her head tilts as she frees, “Yes you could be a good dancer but you seem somewhat stiff today, next time try to loosen up. It happens you rhythm.”

Marianne dances and it’s wonderful, not only has she been training for most of her life to show off in such a way but her body is limber and flexible, percent for the dance. Her hair was whipping is as she moves as if to grasp the very last eyes not focused on her in royal ball. But you can’t focus, you still feel oddly abused by being dragged around the room by an older woman.

With a quick goodbye you leave Pauline after she was finished with Marianne.

“Had fun?” Asked the devil by your side.

You simply grunt and carry on walking but with a noticeably faster pace.

On the way to the tea room to have and afternoon break you feel a tugging on your sleeve. It’s the princess. She looks at with a nervous glint in her eye and a small blush upon her face.

“Reinhold, I wonder if it’s possible for you do me a favour.” Her eyes looking everywhere but you, whilst twirling her golden hair with a finger.

“Uh sure?”

“I was wondering if you could take me to watch the sparring instead of going to my next lesson. My father won’t be mad at you. I promise.” She pleads at you now looking into your eyes. She’s so beautiful how could you say no to her whilst gazing into her blue eyes. So you tear your eyes away. You could be screwing your job on the first real day or you could be making her softer with you if you give her this one thing.

“I mean I should see how men fight, in case I ever get in a position where I’m attacked. Please Reinhold I never get to do anything fun and it's perfectly safe watching from the castle.” She tugs your shirt harder but still gently enough not to be rude.

You have to admit she is rather adorable when begging you so enthusiastically. Maybe you could try to get something out of this….

Nothing can go wrong right?

I guess she gets bit bored, no very bored with lesson after lesson. Not being able to go out when she wants to and a seeming lack of friends. You can relate, working at the whore house killed you internally. Never did you go out to play with friends, no one wanted to be your friend. It kind of changed in the army but missing out on that socialisation crippled you.

You are going to make her happy.

“Sure.”

Without any more words you let her take you through the castle. It seems she must have snuck off before but as no one has mentioned it to you so it can’t have been that common of an occurrence. Or she’s planned this very well. You wonder why she wants to see the guys in the pit trading blows with wooden swords until one gives up after a beating.

You follow behind her following blue gown until you reach a door to a secluded balcony overlooking the guard house and the pit. Already you can hear the chanting of the crowd chanting a name of one of the gladiators but you can’t make it out. There are two men just in trousers circling each other holding a wooden sword each. Both with shaven heads like all soldiers have to (under the rank of captain). The only way to identify them is one is half limping and covered in bruises. A charge forward by the one you suppose they are chanting for. He follows it up with a swing of his sword into his opposition’s chin sending his head reeling back. His body slumps. The crowds roar again, but they aren’t the only one. You hear a petite shout from Marianne in unison with the other spectators.

Wow, she’s really into this. To see her get so animated because of the fight really shocks you. She usually is quiet and rude but too see her so excited and energetic puts a smile on your face.

Looking back at the crowd you see the untouched winner goading the crowd on, asking his there is anyone that can challenge his might. You could. The pretentious dick in the tournament was better than him and you won that soundly. Marianne probably would be entertained if you win. She might respect you more if she sees you winning, no more brow beating for the simplest infraction. Plus she is safer in the castle than outside being guarded by you.

“Marianne I never took you for such a sports enthusiast.” You grin at her.

“We all have flaws and clearly yours is speaking to informally to me.” Her face scrunches into a scowl being torn away from the view. But you suspect her snap at you was because she realises how cute her shout must have looked like coming from her.

Next you see a rather small guy disarm the champion then slam his head again the arena wall until he gave up. You both giggled seeing the small man hold now ex reigning champion

“Anyway I’m getting hungry, we’ve watched enough for today.” You tell her

As you leave and she puts your hand in hers. Then quickly pulls it out of your lax grasp.

“Well how was that?” You smile at her, adrenaline still pumping through your system. No not from the hand holding.

“Most impressive, I guess you did live up to my expectations and more. I really enjoyed seeing the small fellow. Maybe I can get you to take to watch some other time?.” Cheeks flushed and her hands planning with her regal dress. She smiles at you, “You know what next weekend I’ll treat you. We can go into town together and I will get anything you like.”

“Thank you.” She adds in a more gentle voice and skittish manner. She shrugs, “Today was really fun and I don’t get many chances to do stuff like this. Anyway I’ll see you tomorrow I’m not very hungry. I’ll let you eat in peace”

With that you escort the more placid princess to her to her room. Glancing at her you see she isn’t looking at you, more importantly she’s looking away from you, so you only get her golden hair. But you know she is happy, she told you so. Women may be are easier then you thought.

You reach her room and give her a goodnight and she mumbles back a response and scurries in. You feel you have made real progress with her today. Maybe if you continue like this she’ll see you less as a shadow and more as a friend.

>Guard Rank: SNAKE

OK I'm knackered. I hope you enjoyed today's session and didn't mind it was more focused on Marianne. Thank you all for participating. Sorry for the short run time.

I'll make a Twitter as Wrenloft asks.

all I can say right now is that there are some spelling errors.

Consider typing in a word doc and posting portions into the text boxes as needed. That should also remove any issues like losing an entire piece due to internet fuck ups.

>>2475862
You are right and thats what I worried about while writing it. But the way I see it is that you might be Marianne's first real friend and she gets to in the future share her hobby with you. Being rather lonely growing up she is very excited about this whole thing, but it doesn't mean she wants your dick.

>>2475886
I'm curious if she has the same backgrounds as last time. If we're the first real bodyguard this time it would make sense that she warms up sooner but if there's still all that business with a prior bodyguard then it seems a bit odd after one day.
>>
>>2475902
>I'm curious if she has the same backgrounds as last time.
No, it didn't happen. I didn't like that so I cut it. Her last bodyguard was a female knight who was older and the king hoped she'd be like a big sister to her. It didn't work as the ex-bodyguard didn't care about the princess so only did her duty, no more.

I agree. Relationship would probably take a bit longer to progress.

>>2475923
thank you

That makes more sense then. Her appeal to me was always slowly breaking down her walls it's just that it was too slow.

Though punch mage is always my favorite.
>>
>>2475957
She will still push you away, she got wrapped up in the moment which I tried to show by the handhold as the only other person she get on with is her dad.

that might have been a bit much.
>>
>>2476004
The way i see it is that most people there are watching for entertainment and aren't soldiers so they grew a bit of a culture around having fun with the crowd but if you don't like it I'll make it into a more serious thing.

All in all, the only thing I'd consider looking into would be the previously mentioned pace at which the relationship progresses.
>>
>>2476105
While in my mind I'd rather keep the characters as close as they were to the start of Arch's run, I understand if you want to diverge from that, as well.

>>2476141
Yeah i got that, it happened to me when I archived the others before. Maybe someone doesn't like me?
>>2476146
I plan to in general but it's been years since I've read it, plan to do it over the coming week. Clearly I've changed Marianne but that was as she wasn't liked well so I thought it'd be a good idea.
>>
>>2476167

Every quest has its haters and trolls.
>I plan to in general but it's been years since I've read it, plan to do it over the coming week. Clearly I've changed Marianne but that was as she wasn't liked well so I thought it'd be a good idea.
fair enough
>>
Wait the QM thinks Marianne wasn't liked?
She had the biggest portion of waifu votes in several of the polls in the original quest.
>>
>>2476445
Previous times I've run people were saying they hated her. Maybe in the original she was liked but on /qst/ the only comments about her have been negative.
>>
>>2476445
>>2476458
Yeah, I seem to recall Marianne having a very large base for a considerable run of the game, especially in the run up to the duel.
>>
>>2475797
Your lack of proper punctuation pains me.
>>
>>2476458
Well that's because she was at her worst early in the original quest, it took time for her to open up but that was what made her interesting.
>>
Well I'm wankered as it was my mate's birthday today and I've got a busy week so I cant run intermittent updates. But It sounds like I done fuck up. My bad I'll try to fix it.
>>
Sorry
>>
I thought I thought I was rid of this weeb trash after it ended on /tg/. Why, oh God, did you have to bring it back? That said, I'll give you some constructive criticism instead:

1. Your grammar and punctuation aren't great. Try to proofread your stuff before you post. It's easy to make typos and other errors, but spending a few minutes looking over stuff generally improves it a lot.
2. Your grasp of the language and prose aren't great either. For example:
>Her face scrunches into a scowl being torn away from the view. But you suspect her snap at you was because she realises how cute her shout must have looked like coming from her.
Stuff like that doesn't make a lot of sense. You could instead say:
>She snaps her face away from you, her expression sour. You suspect she's huffing because of her recent display of emotion. It was rather cute.
3. When writing waifu quests, it's really all about how well you can characterize the people the audience interacts with. I can't say I read your stuff much, but I can say people generally respond more enthusiastically when they're engaged in what's happening. Something to think about.

Also you got to remember most successful relationships last with a man caring more about a woman in a relationship. It's sad but from what I've seen its true. Women car more about the children while we care ,ore about our partner. Could be wrong but that's my two cents.

Frankly the modern day is corrupt and filled with vice. It prays on our imperfection and love.

You’ve devoured your fill. Going much further than making up for the two meals you missed. But those roast turkey legs are too delicious to say no to. You guess it could be said you’ve eaten like a king, as it is clear the staff create similar meals for him. Sadly Nicolette wasn’t there this time. Most probably she is still working, shouting at her underlings to get in line or the like.

Thinking on the day so far what is sticking out is your failure in the dance lesson. You know you could have done much better. The lack of any semblance of perfection grates on you. Rooms in the castle rarely get locked at night unless it is someone’s quarters or contains important items such as the treasury and armoury. Guessing the minor dance hall is still open you make your way there.

Reaching the doors, you test it with a gentle push. You were right it wasn’t locked. Making the way to the centre of the room you peer into the mirror covering a wall. Admiring the expensive jacket covering your thicker underlayer, it has a clean colour to it, a dull blue with a golden trim.

Thinking of a song you have heard a few time before, which you expect the nobility would dance, you hum it. With a strain and a bit of time, you gather the shadows in the room caused by the low sun; you form a humanoid shape. It has the same size as Pauline. The creation is ugly and looks more akin to a stick figure but it will do. Getting the simple repetitious rhythm of the piece stuck in your head, you grasp at the shadow form and start moving.

Your hands are placed where Pauline instructed you to put them on her. You time every step to every beat of the tune. With a hand on its waist, you pull the image along to simulate a partner. Copying the footwork you were taught hours earlier to drag it around the room. With no one watching, you perform much better compared to the awkward stumbled of last time. Inserting more flare, stolen from your dueling footwork you try to build up your performance. It may not look suitable, you do not know much about dancing style, but it gets you more in the positive frame of mind.

The doors swing open from behind. Two beams of glaring light shred the shadow that once was your partner. Twisting your head you glare at the intruder. It is a half-giant by any reckoning. It is a man; the form is clear in its shape. From his eyes, the two searchlights are generated. He is clad in golden armour leaving his muscular arms exposed much like Sir Vincent. You reckon he is about nine feet tall. From his bare arms, you see veins lit up with a similar rich light.

This must be the king; no being such as this could serve another.

King Thierri booms out at you, “Ah, there you are Reinhold. I’ve been looking for you, I gave your room a knock but it seems no one was in. Funny to find you here, I guess that dancing lesson inspired you.”
>>
“Oh sorry my lord I-I-“

“Don’t be silly you could not know. What I’ve come for is to find out your thoughts on the job and my daughter.”

How do you respond? Roll a d20 to not stumble over your words.

The light emanating from him is truly grand, you feel overpowered by it. You always disliked when the sun was too bright but it is nothing compared to being near the king. You swallow the desire to avert your eyes from his grace.

With perfect composure, you tell him, "The job itself is perfectly fine, great even. The main problem I have is that your daughter seems too sheltered, I apologize if I sound rude but I think it's clear she doesn't have many friends of her same age that she can hang around with."

He gives a sad smile to you, “Yes it is true. Since her mother passed away she became a recluse. She shunned her childhood friends and being too proud to give an apology she knew the bridges were burnt. And she couldn’t find any new ones due to the lack of girls her age in the castle. So I thought if I get a bodyguard for her who was slightly older her, she might see her as an older sister figure. But that didn’t happen; her previous bodyguard didn’t want to “babysit” her and became resentful of her station. No longer was she fighting battles or monsters she was stuck in a castle.”

“So I’m the second go of that tactic?”

Yes, it seems it already started better than the last.” He puts his immense hand on your shoulder, “She was quite happy when I met her for dinner saying that you were rather nice today. From Marianne, it’s quite a compliment. I also know that she missed her last lesson today, I hope you kept her safe whatever you were doing and you aren’t taking advantage of her naivety?”

“No sire, I’d never do that I took her-“ You say in a panic.

“Reinhold you seem a good man, I trust you and I don’t need you to report everything to me. All I want is her happiness and safety and if you can continue providing that I see no issue with her missing a lesson now and then but don’t make it too common of an occurrence.”

“Of course, I thought it would be a nice one-off and she seems so interested to go see the pit.”

“Ah, I could have guessed so. When she started to keep to herself her only companions were me, when I have the time, and books. She always went for the ones with the heroic knights saving a beautiful princess. But enough of spilling my daughter's secrets and don’t let her know we’ve talked. But carry on like this and help her grow up into a better woman and you’ll find yourself a knight in no time.”

With that, he gets up and leaves you. The light he spawns leaves with him too. It’s rather late now.

What do?

Worn out from your meeting with the king you decide to make it back to your room. You make your way back through the castle, still a bit shell-shocked. Along your way you have no diversions interrupting you.

Finally, you open the door and flop down onto your bed. Greeted by the same softness you felt last night.

Thinking about everything that happened today, you feel rather pleased. Your meeting with the king went well; he seems to approve of you. You’ve found Marianne is all as mean as she wants you to think she is. Also, you are trying to get better at dancing.

Fighting in the pit could be fun; maybe you’ll give it a go sometime this week. You expect there are bets involved, so you could make a decent amount of money. Maybe you could challenge Nicolette, you can’t tell how strong she is, and it could also teach you some new moves.

With that once again you call your magic to spread darkness throughout the room. Like a wave emanating from you painting all in black. Hopefully, this night will be without dreams of the unpleasant kind.

Short update, couldn't think what to write.

What do you want to see next thread? I plan for true combat the one after.
>>
Also my computer has started to break, I'm not sure how long I'll have to deal with it before I get a new one.

Aside from combat, I'd like to meet more of the cast (punch mage, mad scientist, etc). Maybe get some training in.

>>2481289
We could go out on the town, maybe with friend or two.
>>
>>2481296
I plan them for next session. You can fight in the pit but it won't be a life or death situation. I plan to have you fight Nicolette and the unseen guard captain in a three-way brawl.
>>2481300
That is going to be the one after as Marianne invited you to town. You can bring along another friend, she won't think it's rude unless you both ignore her.

I copy and pasted the first thread as a shitpost on April the first and some people told me to go along with it and try to run it.
>>
>>2481366
The absolute madman. Somebody ought to tell Arch. I was dicking around with running a different quest in the same setting but I was sure this merry bunch of faggots would've fucked off and/or died by now.
>>
>>2481372
Someone did on his ask account thing apparently. Give it a shot and we can run side by side, it'd be a laugh.
>>
>>2481377
I'm sure Arch would appreciate we ran with the setting he made. Or wouldn't. Hard to tell with the almighty turtle. Hard to believe the original run ended what, four years ago now?

I'll see if I can be fucked to get something written. It'd be something pretty different from PGQ, though I'd still be trying the comfy atmosphere.
>>
>>2481377>>2481388

I should probably let you know, Arch doesn't exactly approve of this.
