Oh damn it. It hasn't even been a day since I was last attacked. Can't they just do this on a more reasonable schedule? Say, thirty minutes once a week? That would be great.

"Look buddy, if you're here to fight, I'm gonna be super pissed if you interrupt me while I'm eating."

>LeiRYNHa Ganjeel. I suspect that's her full name and he's trying to intimidate her
It's not really going to work. It's not a secret, I just never use it.

>Kobolds have last names?
It's kind of a recent thing, since traditional kobold naming conventions were a little confusing for everyone else. First name, last name is pretty universal so it got picked up about a hundred years ago, I think.

Fine. You can spurt some fire or something later. Whatya here for, 'bro'?
No. 501596 ID: f2c20c

Alright, well, tell him that the crystal might not even be anything interesting. The mages did a cursory analysis and it looks like a regular mana battery. Also, one of the cultists said that the cult is just collecting all sorts of artifacts, so they might just want it to add to their collection.

We would of course like to verify this, and if he's got any ideas aside from having another group of mages do a more detailed analysis, we're all ears. Also, does he have any advice on learning how to use magic?
No. 501597 ID: 759d37

You two have very similar noses, actually.

Most folks, elves included, wouldn't have the balls to interrupt a minotaur in the middle of an argument, so maybe this guy is worth listening to, at least briefly.
No. 501609 ID: 57a559

He might not be a hybrid, Rynh. I imagine your conception would have been very difficult for your father if your mother couldn't change shape. Not that I suppose it's impossible, your father may really love big women. Woman that can easily crush him...

How many girlfriends has your father had in your lifetime? I'm curious if you have any half-siblings on his side too.
No. 501610 ID: 21c197

Does he even want the Plot Gemerald? Maybe we should ask what's up before we jump to any conclusions.
No. 501620 ID: 997ce7

He closes his eyes when he smiles.

Never trust anyone who does that. Even if he is your long-lost never-found (half-)brother, he's still a suspicious-looking son of a bitch.

Tell him to piss off and meet you somewhere he can demonstrate certain things.

Then sneak there and get there before he does. Then tie him up and interrogate him. I'm sure Jehral's sister would like that.
No. 501625 ID: 450660


Demand that he tell you things that only someone who is your sibling could know. Particularly things that would otherwise be considered private -- so none of that "who is my mother" crap.

Totally not going to backfire in embarrassing and hilarious ways? I hope not!
No. 501633 ID: b33427

"Trust me for now?" Seriously? No. Fuck no. You don't know him from Adam, and you're not listening to what he's saying 'till he shows his credentials as a (half-)dragon and Leimahtaa's son.

Immediately get up and tell "Hejra" that we're taking this conversation to the nearest open area where he can demonstrate his draconic credentials without causing property damage before you'll listen to anything he has to say. Then pack up your ham hock and lead the way out of here.

I'm not trusting some weird guy that shows up out of nowhere and tells me he's my brother. I don't even know he's a dragon. He just looks like some crazy elf or something.

We wander out into a open area and demand some proof of something. Do something dragony.

"Alright, alright... I'll try to keep this subtle though. No point in drawing unwanted attention."

Okay, I guess that is something. All he's proven is that he could wipe us all out if he wanted. So... Yeah.
No. 503033 ID: f2c20c

Ask him if he can teach you to do that.
No. 503034 ID: bf54a8

yeah no pure elf col ever do something that awesome. elves are just dumb like that.
No. 503036 ID: 78c6ea

You don't even have the same breath weapon! He's talking to the wrong half dragon kobold, sorry. With how common those are it's an easy mistake to make.

I guess you could at least humor him for a while. If he was going to take your thingy you'd already be dead. What's his deal anyway?
No. 503043 ID: ab6499

If he isn't your real brother you should totally make him an honorary brother, that was pretty damn cool.
No. 503052 ID: 656f39

Well he is certainly cool enough to be your sibling. lets adopt him.
No. 503076 ID: 759d37

Inform him you still strongly doubt he's half kobold.
No. 503077 ID: 57d82a

that's not fire. how did he do... nevermind. everyone's gotta have their own tricks.

how's he going to help?

so you have some flare, what do you want from us.
No. 503101 ID: d6ef5d

Holy heck! How come he gets a lightning hyperbeam and all you get is a little fire? How's he do that?

File 136495267853.png - (242.32KB , 788x675 , 136.png )

Well, he's probably some kind of dragon, but I don't know if that means I can trust him.
On the other hand, he could probably just fry me with lightning breath and do whatever he wants, so the fact that he hasn't kind of says something.
No. 503611 ID: d6ef5d

So place him on provisional trust and ask him what he wants already. And why his dragon powers get to be so much more absurdly powerful than your own!
No. 503612 ID: 26e4bb

So what does he wants anyways?
No. 503613 ID: f2c20c

So ask him what he wants. Also, ask how you can make your breath that strong.
No. 503636 ID: ef81e3

I have no idea if we're going on D&D rules here, but lightning generally means Blue dragon. Perhaps he is an unrelated hybrid, despite what he claims?
No. 503640 ID: 9ddf68

ask him why the hell did he come track you down if you two have never met before today? I mean I know he clams to be your brother but really, you've been alive how long and he waits till now before he comes looking for you? what the hell?
No. 503653 ID: 759d37

He's some kind of dragon. You DEFINATELY can't trust him.
However, whatever he's after may actually require you to be alive, so that's a benefit.

The important thing is, he's claimed that he's your big brother, so you have every right to treat him like one and make his life slightly more hellish because of it. ( See Jehral and his sister for guidelines )
No. 503688 ID: e71208

agreed. listening would be the smart thing to do here.

"Alright. So if you are my brother and my mom did send you, why bother now? Is my magic doo-hickey that important? Because she definitely didn't care before."

"Well... Kind of, but mostly I'm here to keep an eye on you until you lure out the masterminds behind whoever is collecting all these objects. Otherwise, I should just keep a low profile, which in retrospect, makes me kind of regret my little display here."

Oh damn it. I'm getting caught up in some kind of international intrigue, power struggle-type deal. Which would be cool, if I had more of the power and was doing less of the struggling.

"Uh, how do I get mine that strong?"

Hejra shrugs, "Just wait until you're the size of a building and it kind of happens."

No. 505503 ID: 9ddf68

k so with that out of the way ask him if he is just going to follow you around or if he is going to want you to do things, and after we get that settled lets go back to the dwarf and see if that weapon you asked him to make is done yet.
No. 505505 ID: 735f4f

Yeah most of your inborn dragon abilities just get better with age. Looks like you are stuck working for your power.
No. 505507 ID: d6ef5d

>Just wait until you're the size of a building
...I'd ask how long that takes except he's half Elf while you're half Bold. You probably age at completely different rates, even if your dragon halves give both of you longer lifespans than normal.

Oh well, at least as a kobold you should grow faster than he did, right?

>the plan
So basically I'm going to be bait and you're going to be useless until the biggest bad shows up. Great.

You know anything about why anyone cares? The mages thought it was just some boring battery.
No. 505509 ID: 57a559

Cool, so let's learn mental time travel, go to our future massive body, and go back physically in time.

BAM. Problem solved with as little patience required as possible. In fact, yourself from the future will probably be showing up any minute now... any minute now. So we won't have to do the mental time travel anymore, because of the paradox that would happen.

Or you could just ask your bro for dragon tricks that work at your current size. IF your future self doesn't get in the way.
No. 505511 ID: f2c20c


He's not the size of a building! Point this out while being smug about yourself then realize he can shapeshift and ask when you'll be able to do that too.

Can you breathe fire? Can you use magic? If not, ask him about it.
No. 505556 ID: c210da

Okay.. there's a really, really high probability that this dude's not half-anything, but another dragon.
And in dragon terms 'slightly older' could be a hundred years.
And in support of this: Do you think your dad would have survived boning someone the size of your house? Your mom could probably shapeshift, and this dude can too. At least into this one elf form.
No. 505588 ID: c210da

Also, if he needs a way to handwave his power-beam, he can probably use the mages school/guild as a cover. Things are a bit hectic over there and people were slinging crazy-ass spells all over the place not too long ago.

>"Oh no, no. You keep it. Just go about your business and I'll keep an eye on anyone trying to kill you."

"So you'll help us?"

>"Well... If you can't handle something, but I'd rather keep my involvement as discreet as possible."

"So you're going to be no help as much as possible."

>"You won't even know I'm there. Just live your life as though I don't exist."

"So you're going to be no help, while being a creepy stalker."

And all of a sudden he's gone. Like, poof! Vanished. Oh, damn everything.
No. 509938 ID: d6ef5d

Hey, look at the bright side.

Before, if you ran into some horrible super deadly thing that horribly outclassed you, you would just die. Now you have an invisible, mostly useless guardian who will pop out of nowhere and disintegrate them instead. It's like, you now have divine retribution in reserve!

Plus, you now have a new brother who's going to stay within earshot of any teasing or insults you want to dish out, and he can't respond without blowing cover.
No. 509950 ID: e3aff6

The worst thing that could happen is he overestimates you.
No. 509958 ID: 9ddf68

be very careful now whenever you bath or change cloths as he is ALWAYS WATCHING you now. Oh well since there is nothing you can really do about your new stalker bother might as well go back to the dwarf and pick up you weapon you told him to make.

No. 510129 ID: 59c57c

Ask HIM if he knows what the damned rock does. You wrecked a rock spider for it, you deserve to know.

Hopefully its useful. Even if you can't use it directly, you might be able to exploit it some other way.Or at least know what not to do and keep that shapely ass of yours safe.
No. 510130 ID: d6ef5d

Oh, new game! We can ask him whatever we want! We can get him to agree to whatever we want! (Or tease him until he drops cover).

For instance:

"Hey bro, you know what this rock does? Say nothing if you do. ...okay, good."
No. 510133 ID: f2c20c

Let's uh

Get back to town and talk to the mages again, ask them if they're willing to examine the thing more in depth (with us there in case they get attacked again) and if not if they can direct us to someone who can.
No. 511259 ID: 65c3dd

Why do we even care what it does or why people want it? What's important is that people really want it. That makes it valuable. Someone will want to buy it and will be willing to pay a lot for it.

This stupid crystal is getting annoying and after some flailing around, I'm pretty sure he's not here anymore. Oh, whatever. This whole thing is annoying. I think I'll go do something to clear my head, like just smashing some monster or fucking up some bandits. I'll need that sword I ordered first though.

>Sell it to the cultists
They'd probably try to murder me afterwards. "YOU KNOW TOO MUCH" type crap. That's how it works right? Evil cults are dicks.
No. 515028 ID: cf0692

then go get your sword.
No. 515030 ID: 9ddf68

oh so you did go with the sword until now you never really did say what you got from the dwarf. Will then lets go pick it up and then... what was our goal after we tried to figure out what the glowing rock did, did we even think that far ahead or did we just decide we'll come up with something when we get to that point?
No. 515033 ID: 19b3c3

> I think I'll go do something to clear my head
Excellent idea! Let's consider the available prospects for smashing while we go to pick up the sword.

>Evil cults are dicks.
Pretty much, yeah. Also, anyone who could just kill you to save from paying you off can't really be trusted.

He's light, but he'll probably break something on impact. This isn't throwing him up onto the roof to get a ball back. Maybe one toss to see how far he can go...

Hmm... Probably shouldn't.
No. 516838 ID: 735f4f

If he is anything like a cat you just have to throw him far enough so he can arch his back and prepare for landing.

But yeah probably should not risk damaging your boy toy with cultists lurking about.

Bad form! Bad form!
You should be launching him like he were a ball of energy from your palms!

He's small enough for you to hold him by the feet (same as giving someone a boost when climbing) so he can jump as you throw him, allowing Jehral greater airtime with a roll-recoverable landing!

Kobolds aren't really fertile with much, but we're ungodly fertile with what we are and I don't think either of us want to settle down to raise a litter of brats yet.

I'll check it out, but I probably want my giant sword before I do anything drastic. Dammit! Why does actual blacksmithing take so much longer than melting a lump onto the end of a stick?

I'll check the local bounties, but I don't want to go too far or fight anything too crazy without a big weapon.

The local riff-raff seems to be varied. I'd guess that the value of the bounty might have something to do with how hard they are to actually bring in.

>trade those pups tagging along for someone smart and handsome that wasn't warped by growing up with you.

Can I trade in you for someone who isn't an asshole?

I don't know if any of us have the mass to make use of anything he'd teach us. Me, maybe. Jehral and Sika, probably not.

Take the gobbo and rat's posters. Track down the rat, and make her help you find the gobbo in exchange for a small portion of the reward money, which would help her get off the streets. She can help by being less high profile- that'll allow her to get information we can't.

The golbin looks the best balance between effort to bring her in, and reward money. The humans kind of look like more effort than they'd be worth to take down, and the pocket change they're offering for the rat doesn't seem worth the bother of picking her up and carrying her to the bounty office. Even if she was standing right here.

start with the small timers since we are mostly just doing this to kill time until the sword is ready, we can work our way up from there if we still need to kill time after we bring one of them in and try to remember all of the faces on the board because if we happen to run across one of them while looking for someone else we might as well make the best of it.

Otherwise.. the fuse is pretty long. any amount of time she'd need to get to safety should be long enough to put out the fuse.. of course then she'd have a head start..

where are the others?

The match bounces off the top of that big barrel with the fuze sticking out of it.

It might not matter if it just blows up immediately, or not at all. Dropping it on the lid doesn't seem like the best way to set this off.

>If dragon breath can make fire, surely dragon breathing in can put out that wussy little match.
If you can breath out stupid ideas when you talk, then you can probably suck up bad ideas from others to make them less stupid. It must be how you restock your supply.

I'll worry about that later. Right now I'm staring at this match.

Both. Distract them with the big mean dragon-girl in their face while your kobold backup gets them with something more subtle.

Bonus points if your buddies take the explosives the goblins left behind and incorporate them into the trap.

Cause if you're working with your group I say you go full force while your to kobolt friends lurk around the sides taking out however they can while trying to remain unseen and have the big guy guard any possible escape routes so none of these little bastards run again and f things get hairy in the fight against the goblins he can always rush in and scare and beat the crap out of the little goblin bastards as well.

>That one just fucking risked blowing herself up just to get away. So you need to go after them with full reckless force!
Actually I'm pretty sure she didn't, all she dropped was a small match on a piece of wood. It's hard for wood to catch fire from such a small source that will last a small amount of time, she would have needed to put paper on top of the barrel for that thing to really catch on fire from that match.

Rynh was safe the entire time from it pretty much. The odds of that thing going off from a single lit match on top of it were pretty nil. I wish I could have told Rynh she was being stupidly afraid of nothing and to go after the running goblins instead, because that thing wasn't going to go off. Rynh, you could have just straight up picked the match off and threw it off the barrel too.

Regardless, if those goblins had enough time to run to a safe distance, you had enough time to run after them to an appropriately safe distance. I really hope you had backup somewhere, like Thodren or something, because running after goblins is a bit of a bitch.

I have no idea how you can be subtle about running goblins, full force because I can't even comprehend a subtle approach.

"Okay, change of plans. We're all going to go get them."
"You said that it was just a few goblins and that you could handle it."
"Well, now we're all going to chase them, because they had bombs."
The goblins are sprinting down the street, but two of them are slowed down by the ass whooping I gave them. As long as we don't lose sight of them, we should be fine.
It'll be good for Jehral and Sika to learn the basics of adventuring; beating people up for money.

We round a corner to the sound of screeching tires as a cabbage truck weaves down the street, spilling produce all over the road.

Cabbages get involved when chasing people way more often than they should. I heard the god of fate doesn't like sauerkraut and cursed cabbage merchants with a life of misfortune, but that's probably just superstition.

Cabbages are kind of hard, compared to lettuce, anyway. A firm flick of the tail is all it takes to bounce produce off goblin face. Unable to swear properly, she just kind of makes noises and crumples to the ground. Nothing like a bit of mild head trauma to keep someone from running off.

I think I can manage on my own for now. I think I have this wrapped up.

Remembering what happened last time:
Pretty-boy is quite fast, but not nearly as strong as you. (He seems to like jumping more than strictly necessary, so we might be able to feint and catch him in midair).
He can teleport (which can apparently cut things he has grabbed), so remember not to grab him. He has not used this offensively yet, but if he siddenly disappears he will probably be trying to tele-stab you.
He hasn't used any offensive abilities yet aside from a mediocre melee attack but he probably has more than one magic trick, so have some cover in mind in case he wants to sit up there and lob fireballs like a wuss.

So he has what is probably a magic sword, though he used it in only the first of two attacks, which suggests he either can't or is too overconfident to bother with using it repeatedly.

alright so we need to be careful around this guy since he can move anywhere in a blink of an eye making him a bitch to pin down and has some pretty good spells on him.

Come on. Give Jehral and Sika the secret kobold handsign or code word for "Set up an ambush down the road". Screw single combat. Ideally you want to lure this guy into an alleyway that has a surprise minotaur, lots of flammable stuff and kobold traps in it.

Otherwise stay mobile. Try to use the terrain and your superior strength to throw various things at him. It would be good if you could throw something he can't stop easily by blocking. Like a heavy bag of thrash, a sandbag from some roadworks or a fuel canister if you can find any. I also don't think he knows about the fire breath so save it as a surprise; Perhaps if you can get him trapped in a tight spot.

That means he's still coming for you, and just has the fire to block your line of sight. Respond appropriately with your sword. Worst case, you waste the effort of stabbing a burning corpse. Best case, you keep from being made a fool of.

But as worrisome as that is? The BIG issue is that speed of his. Best thing I can think of is the next time he swings and you block with your own sword, is either to try and slide yours around to hit him (perferably while stepping out of the way of his sword's path), or to try and trade hits-he's speedy, you're more strong-seems to me he'd take that worse than you, though.

Another half-something then? With sharp looking claws as well... It might be a bad idea to wrestle him unless you feel that you are significantly stronger.

Do you have any other advantages? What's your darkvision like? Is it possibly superior to his? Perhaps you can retreat into a pitch black area or an area with only one light and break the light? You should definitely aim for a fighting retreat while looking for more dirty tricks to pull with the terrain.

How would you feel about fighting him in water? Your strength would work well, but the no fire, wet fur, his stabby sword and those claws might just work against you.

Also no holding back. Time to move on to two handed swings. Aim to kill with every attack.

You could try piercing his gut though, I hear that's a bad place for dragons. He shouldn't actually be TOO fast in this form, it's his breath that's the biggest threat. Get out of range of that and you should be good. This is assuming this man's strength and weaknesses run on actual logic.
He looks like he's sporting frost breath, you might need to counter that with fire breath each time.

A dragon? Well, perfect. He's only got one on his side. You've got one and a half.

All you need to do is distract or stall this guy, and wait for you smug bro to sucker punch him with a blast of lightning.

And of course the best way to distract this guy is to be the biggest smug asshole you can be. Luckily, you have a flair for that. "Aw, the poor widdle dragon can't beat a tiny kobold without a big light show? Not impressed." *Grin*

Don't call out to or mention your brother. No reason to give this guy warning, or put the fight on 'fair' terms. Team dragonbold will take the suprise round, thanks.

Also, the more energy this idiot wastes showing off and trying (and hopefully failing) to kill you, the less prepared he's going to be for a dragon on dragon fight. So pissing him off into wasting effort is a good thing.

This one'd be little by comparison to your smug brother, at least if he's telling the truth. Hate to play the get out of jail free but at least be confident that if you get in trouble he'll probably save your ass.

That said, at least know we know what we are up against, so it's time to show your stuff and fuck up a dragon. Maybe stab him in the eyes. Maybe cut his head off. Maybe stick your sword down his throat. Most dragons are tough against fire but that last bit definitely hurt him a bit so use a burst to blind him before you chop him in the neck.

That would be a pretty ideal end result, but the execution is going to be a problem.

>rely on your brother
I don't even know if he's reliable, or even still around. I'd rather not put all my hopes on weird, previously absent relatives that probably have their own motives for helping me that don't actually help me at all.

I block his stupid hook-spike tail thing that he tries to spike me with and only get knocked halfway across the street. I've smacked around things this big before, but they're usually not so slithery. I'll deal with it, somehow.

>run like hell and try not to scream like a little girl.
I never run. I strategically retreat. I don't even need to run anyway. Just because he's bigger, stronger, faster, more armored... It's fine.

Rynh half-dragon dragon-slayer does have a certain nice feel to it.

Oh well. No relying on mystery-bro, but it's nice to know if you go down there's a chance he's going to sucker-shot this guy. Even if we can't beat him, the weaker we get get, the more it helps.

>People kill dragons all the time, right?
...when was the last time you actually heard of someone doing it? Not some myth or passed around tale, but a reliable report?

>I need some kind of dragon hunting strategy.
Right. So... analysis. He's very thin and lithe. Look at the torso and limbs. Not much room for muscle, or armor. Meaning, baring magic, he's probably a lot lighter, less strong, and faster than something that size would usually be. There are also hard limits on how thick his armor can be.

Problem is, that means he's weak to hitting him harder than he can take. Which, due to the size difference, will be hard to do. You already dropped a wall on him without much effect. You need to hit him with something bigger. Drop a building or bridge on him. Something big, and very heavy. Preferably made of the heaviest stuff around.

...aren't we near a bank vault that was wired to blow? Bank vaults tend to be build out of sturdy stuff. And the explosives to knock it down are already there. That might be your best plan. Lure him back there, set the explosives off with fire breath, and bury him.

I'd guess from the coloration his element is ice, or maybe lightning. Be prepared to deal with a breath attack of that nature, and maybe to trick him into into shooting something that inconveniences him.
No. 565010 ID: 57a559

You could potentially cut off his tail and half his potential offense in a counter attack if you ever see the opening.

Try to get him to make a stab into you, but you dodge and get his tail stuck in a wall for floor. If he puts enough force into his stab, he'll be open for that tail cut.

Dragons are notorious for losing their tails to adventurers, and said adventurers getting a cool weapon out of it. You could then use it on HIM.

It's totally cheap but if there's something around with sturdy enough building materials for it you could go somewhere he's more constrained than you are by an enclosed space.

No. 565019 ID: 34b2f2

Killing blows are traditionally delivered through the eyes, the roof of the mouth when they try biting you, or soft underbellies. Last one's a crapshoot, depends on the type of dragon. Eyes are a solid target to aim for wounding, wings are probably pretty decent on that count too.

Using narrow spaces like an alleyway to outmaneuver him, maybe lose him for a second or two and use the time to get above him for a sneak attack, is a solid strategy. have to be careful to not just provoke him into deploying his breath weapon into said space though. That probably wouldn't turn out great.

No. 565038 ID: a7868d

Ok, here's the thing about dragons. All the parts they use to hit things are part of them, so if they do a tail swipe and you play your cards right you counter the tail with a big fuck off sword.

Take the Bruce Lee plan of action. Attack any attack made against you. He swings his tail, you chop his tail, he claws you, you slash his claws. He tries for a bite and hes fucked.
No. 565042 ID: f31150

that's actually a good idea. all its weapons are natural, so if you slash at whatever part of its body it throws at an angle of 180 degrees, it will be damaged.

except if it uses its breath. if that happens, retreat strategically like the dickens.

Well? You still have hold of his tail; keep going with the whipping before he can recover.
Also, in super-strength fights, you shouldn't throw your enemy into buildings, you should throw them into the ground. Not due to collateral dammage, but due to the simple fact that building walls can give in under pressure, but the ground can't. (This is because there is nowhere for the ground to go that isn't towards the impact or occupied by more ground.) Unless it is constructed from adamantine or magic swords, hitting with a building instead of the ground is like bludgeoning with an empty tin can when you could be using a brick.

Seriously, don't let up until he can't beg for mercy or escape your wrath. Apparently he has shit insticts for how to fight you if you were able to throw him into a wall like that, so keep it up! If you think you can do it right now chop off his tail, if not attack him in other ways: If you have the strength and stamina to keep it up slam him into more walls and the ground again; if not then bean him in the skull with whatever's handy until he's permanently brain-damaged or at least stunned and concussed.

Letting this guy talk or plan is a mistake, and if he gets sufficient time to recover he will use his breath attack on you or smash you into/with the local terrain. If he even gets to say one more word you have failed and you deserve to lose. Shut up and keep hitting him!

If you can't do that, pick up a boulder from the rubble and chuck it down his throat. He can't bite through stone, and he can choke on it trying to get a breath attack out.

An angry overconfident opponent is one who makes mistakes, and over-commits to stupid things. Gives you an opportunity to dodge and counterattack, or maybe giving your brother the opportunity to do the same.

Excellent. He bleeds.

Now to make some more of that happen.

We have to work fast- you don't know how long can sustain this, or how long you have until your own injuries overcome you. If you can cut through his armor, you're probably hitting hard enough now that you can break his spindly little limbs, with a direct blow, which will hamper his mobility. Damaging his wings will really hamper mobility, and I'll bet they hurt like hell when they're damaged.

Kill-strikes- the best way to do it is to either impale his brain through an eye or up through the roof of his mouth, or just stab him in the core through the cut you already put in his middle. Ruin a shit ton of organs (aim for the lungs or heart if you can).

And for heavens sake, if he does that cheap-ass wind thing again, dodge or block it with your sword. Or overpower it by punching a range-fueled fire blast right through it and down his throat. Bags of hot air burn, right?

This still stands if dragon-bro steps in at any point. Also be sure to complain if he steps in because he decides he wants this joker alive for questioning.

You can punch Rynh later for causing all this mental trauma and for putting the possible thought that her dad is hot into your head. She may use your brother as a punching bag but someone should put her in her place and show who's the real alpha of this little group. Your clear dominance has been challenged by her earlier berserk mode and you need to reestablish yours.
But its pretty clear by the fact that your now into her dad because you humored it for a second even longer than Thodren, and the idea of his ass in tight leather armor like he was wearing nothing at all will never leave your head for the next few weeks. Fight and deny it all you want, but it will continue to fester for quite a while until one day, you're completely comfortable with the idea. You're going to see it in every skeleton you bash apart, ever ankle you bite, every evil catgirl you undress. Forever.

Rynh is the closest thing to a magic user we have and she just spews fire everywhere. I wonder if I could learn magic. You don't hear about a lot of kobold mages, but I could probably pull off one of those skimpy sorceress numbers, right?

Probably dont hear alot about Kobold mages because they're secretive and cunning.

As for Rynh... she barely had the patience to have a new weapon made for her before she started looking for trouble. If she does pick up any magic, it will likely be about as subtle as the Goblin Incident.

Besides, Rynh is Rynh. If she learns magic, fine. This is you. Learning magic that will help your friends is a big plus, but learning magic that will help Sika isn't exclusive to that.

Hey, you know whats a REALLY awesome school to pair with your skills?
The Illusion school.
Fuck conjury, destruction, or healing (though to be honest healing is pretty bitchin too.)

If you learn magic than you can probably eventually get invisibility. Invisibility is cheating at stealth, and cheating is great.

Are there any ambitions you've had in life that you haven't gotten around to working toward?

If by "investigation" you mean "steal a wizard book and try stuff" then I agree.

Learning magic would probably just take a lot of time, money, and dedication. That's probably the main reasons for why not everyone learns it. I mean sure it would be handy to be a blacksmith, but most people don't bother becoming one, do they?

If you really want to be a cute little sorceress, magician or witch then go for it. It's not like you'd be stepping on Rynh's toes. She'll just learn better ways to blow things up. There's a place for divination, illusions and the more clever magics. You could even create magic stuff and get rich.

Good idea. Healing and summoning would be nice too.

Sure. But first, figure out why your right forearm is so shrunken. You may be under a curse already.

NEVER dress like a mage. Mages are extremely important targets in a fight - if you're sporting a huge neon sign that says 'I'M A WIZARD' they'll go for you first. Dress like a rogue.

Really. A thief's armor works just as well for reagent pockets.

I will probably keep that in mind, unless I see some mage outfit that looks good on me. Then all bets are off. What's the point if I don't get to wear the silly clothes?

That is so racist. I don't even know where to start with you.

I have no idea how to do that. It might help though. I should go to the school, be the coolest kid. Shove nerds in lockers... with magic. It'll be great.

I dunno. Those guys at the college really didn't seem to know what they were doing. And they still might be miffed about the damage from the fight the last time you guys where there.

I still wanna bother elf-dragon bro.

Gaining the power to shoot lightning from your fingers is well worth the trade-off of not painting a bright neon target on yourself.

>That is so racist. I don't even know where to start with you.
Well, do you know where you can acquire one legitimately?

Even if the college seemed kinda useless, they'd have primers there. And wizard duds.

Might as well ask Rynh's brother first if you can get a hold of him though. He might have some useful advice.
No. 589809 ID: dc4b80

Rynh made some "friends" with those wizards in the college when she showed them that rock the cultists are after. Maybe you can sweet talk your way into getting lessons from one of them.

If you wait until those two are done boning you could bug Rynh for a introduction. Or you could just go over now and see if you can take advantage of the recent attack to look around.

Awesome. Now we are on our way to getting a legit mage in the party, not just a berserker that can breath fire.

After giving Rynh some time to recover from her injuries and making sure there's isn't any naked flailing going on, I inform her of my well thought out and not at all spur of the moment plan to become a wizard or sorcerer or something like that.

After a bit of badgering about the whole deal, we hobble over the academy again and after assuring them we aren't going to wreck up the place again, we can get down to business.
The next semester starts in about a month. I can totally learn some basic stuff before that and then be well on my way to twisting reality to my whim by winter.

"I don't know. This sounds really expensive." Rynh says.

"If she passes aptitude testing, it's twenty-two thousand seta per year." Galaf tells her.
"Okay, yeah. That's pretty expensive." Rynh replies.

"No way, it's an investment. You need a badass wizard-type on your side. I could be a badass wizard." I tell her, "I'll pay you back in no time, once I'm all awesome. Besides, you got my brother. You owe me."

"If I say yes, will you stop pawing at my sore arm and not talk about that in front of other people anymore?" she sighs.

"Deal! Don't worry about a thing. This is clearly the best idea. You just need to survive without me for a while."

"It'll be a challenge, but I guess I'll try."
No. 591030 ID: 2fd516

Sounds good. Time for aptitude testing!

Now that that's settled, Rynh and the others are going to keep going and I'm going to have to buckle down and study, so I can be good enough to get out there again. It kind of sucks, but taking the time to pick up some useful skills is better than tagging along and being a burden.
I finally got my hands on Rynh's magic book. Not a lot of effect just yet, but I'm sure chapter two will yield better results. Just got to keep going until classes start and I start really learning stuff.
The first time I went to that academy was pretty interesting, but I doubt there will be as many explosions next time.

>I doubt there will be as many explosions next time.

Well it really depends on what type of magic the students learn, how powerful they are, and how much control they got. So don't lose hope yet kid.

...wait, does this mean you're now effectively whoring your brother out for 22k a pop.

If there aren't a lot of explosions, you're not wizarding right.
