[My first adventure! http://quest.lv/kusaba/questarch/res/204114.html ]

Hello again! It's been a while since we last talked!
Right now Eirik and I are crossing the stream on out way to the nearest human civilization. He put me in a metal barrel and we're heading there now.
We made some small talk along the way and I found out the ones who burned the town down was a group of orcs. He says it would be a open closed case but the Orcs had some sort of magic fire. There are a few theories on who gave it to them but he says he needs more info to really figure this out.

I may be a smart girl but most of this is going over my head @_@

he is so dreamy~ and it is nice that you finally managed to hug someone. but chris got bonus points for hugging you even though it hurt. that is a sign of a true friend, being with you in spite of the pain.

anyway, ask where we are going first.

"U-uhm.. I... Uh..."

>"Oh! I gotta go back and meet up with Len! I'll see you guys later."

He winks at me.

>"Later cutie."

He jumps in the air and flies off!
A minute passes.

".... bye.."

Chris >"..... Anyway Curi let me tell you the plan."

He takes a stick and begins drawing in the dirt.

"We're going to meet up with another group who has the same goals as us halfway. From there we're going to make a direct attack on the Dark Elf. It's our best shot. We'll be leaving in groups of ten. Torin and myself will be in a group. I want you to come along as well. Gather up anyone you want to join us and we'll head off tomorrow, okay?"

"okay."

the elf dude would probably want to come, the one thing elves hate more then goblins is dark elves. bring goblin girl as well.

be careful though, dark elves have been known to ride gelatinous cubes, which are pretty deadly for you since they are large ooze things.

Oh god we're going? We need some combat training! Ask someone to help you spar. Um. With a training dummy of course.

While you're in the town, it might be a good idea to see if you can hunt down an alchemist. He/she might be able to concoct some sort of potion that will neutralize your acidic properties for short periods of time. It would make for a decent stop-gap measure for the time being.

Yeah... I think I need to train and..
Wait what am I saying!? I can't fight!
I'm not supposed to be fighting!

Oh man... I should still talk to the others about this..
I go to where Teri said we were all staying and push open the door.

Oh, Sersi is here.

So don't fight. Instead, sneak into their camp at night and dissolve their equipment. When they go to fight the next day their armor and weapons will be useless.
>>
No. 238615 ID: 127c1a

well since your people live in the caves eventually the dak elves will meet up with them, and they will capture them and use them as slaves, not just kill them. they have people who ride gelatinous cubes. they know how to control slimes.

The solution there is to ally with the Dwarves. Dwarven construction would benefit greatly from acidic intelligent slimes, and they're sworn enemies of the drow.
>>
No. 238722 ID: e31d52

>>238600
Rather, dissolve their clothing, the straps of their armor, and the handles of their swords. they will be forced to fight naked with unweildy, painful to hold weapons, or to just give up. Either way, no wholesale slaughter! Yay!

I walk next to her.

"Sersi... There's gonna be a big fight soon and i don't know what to do.."

I explain the situations. Sersi listens to me and about my own beliefs on fighting.
After a while she nods.

>"Okay, well the way I see it there are three options.
A. We go see some dwarves and try to convince them to help us.
B. You learn how to fight.
C. You and I run far far away.
Which do you think is better for you?"

running is a no no. would just be abandoning everyone. we should try to find some dwarves but learning how to fight is not a bad thing. so do both. learn how to fight while going to the dwarfs.

Curi you may not be mentally of physically capable to be a warrior, but some basic self defense is still a good idea. If you can disarm an enemy or cause it pain quickly you can avoid getting yourself or your friends hurt, and just being able to avoid blows will keep you safer. So that is something that you can do... it won't do all that much about the battle though.

Go visit the dwarves, they're the best help you can get right now. We don't know how the dwarves feel about other races, we can guess they don't care for orcs but what about humans and catfolk and goblins? We should make sure to bring someone they are more willing to trust. And hopefully they'll be a bit less prone to freak out when they see you.

Curi, you've almost been killed twice now because people didn't know what you were. You need to at least learn how to dodge and/or deflect attacks properly.

That said, your mission shouldn't involve fighting. In the end, going to talk to the dwarves is the best option. You can remain relatively nonviolent, and the coming battle will be easier.

The groups have split up. Right now it's me, Eirik, Chris, Nalik, Sersi and Torin.
I told Chris about the dwarf idea and he agrees that it seems reasonable.
Extra help in the battle would be great and it is somewhat on the way there.
So we got packed and head off.
Over the past few days I've been training and I've gotten a few new skills.
I can Acid Spit no a long distance and even throw acid at a short distance. The throw gives out more acid but it's less accurate and less range.
Torin also got me Light Green Scale Leather which I can place within myself to protect my main body a little bit more.
All in all I'm pretty combat ready. However I have no idea on how to approach dwarves. One slip and I might ruin this opportunity..

Ask for advice first, then approach with caution.

Run at dwarves yelling, "I love you, please don't hurt me!"

Okay, not really, but you're just so d'aww I can't help but thing it might work.
>>
No. 246769 ID: 5c4201

dwarves respect Strength. but you should approach with caution. approach with your whole group, should make them not think of attacking right away at least, and let you explain what is going on. make sure to include how your people also live in the caves and you worry that if the drow meet them then they will be enslaved.

Look into how to be diplomatic with dwarves. It's not something I support guessing on.

Dwarves respect alcohol. Bring them a barrel of quality ale.

Etch a nearby wall/door/etc with an engraving using your acidic fingers. Any sort of frieze will do. Dwarves like that sort of thing.

excellent. initial intro is only time you need to worry. since he hasn't attacked, you can now talk normally.
"hello, i'm a representative of the race known as 'slime children', we wish to make an alliance with you since we fear our home will come under attack by the Dark Elves. we would be willing to do work like this in exchange for your protection, this was simply a 10 second job while some would be able to do an unparalleled level of detail."

He didn't attack you on sight, that's a huge plus.

Tell him about the Dark elf army and the small settlement on the verge of being attacked.

The dwarf looks at us for a second then motions for us to enter the city. He leads us deep deep underground.
Eventually we reach a small chamber decorated with gold. The dwarf says that inside is their leader.

We step into the room which is noticeably darker then the hallway outside.
Sitting atop a golden throne is their leader.

We explain to him the situation.

>"Hmmph... Well slime child, as it stand we dwarves have yet to be attacked or even bothered by these Dark Elves. Tell me, why should I risk my men and my people's safety to help you?"
>>
No. 252153 ID: 31e5bb

from what we know it could be simply a matter of time, they left you alone just so you would have no reason to enter the conflict so that what they are already fighting would be destroyed. also if all the towns around here are gone then you would have no one to trade with, so all your dwarven crafts will just sit around gathering dust.

That sounds good in theory, but he might try to trade with the dark elves.

I think it would be best if she'd try and convince him that the dark elves are eventually going to turn hostile to the dwarfs. If the dwarfs help us now, the casualties would be much lower than if they had to defend from a dark elven attack all by themselves.
