Oh and just so you know the names of the other ladies are (Clockwise) Sidah, Rivia and Lila.
No. 110118 ID: ba506f

so from what kingdom do the other princess come from and what are the relationships of all the nations? I'm guessing people don't really like the land of the dead if I had to make a guess.
No. 110136 ID: 72de6c

Sidah is a jako from jaka, basicaly angry scottish rabbits with horns. rivia is a Peavan from sellen and lila is a Na-bajju from bajjum (might have country names wrong but am on ds so i cant check =3= ) Politicaly things are tense but theyve been tense so long people are getting complacent, like just before ww1 all itll take is one small push...

As for the Dead there a grey area, as they udsed to be citizens of other nations now sworn to the DK but theres way to many to fight, as long as the dead road stays open they ignore the living anyway so the concensus is "Dont poke the sleeping dragon"

Male jako warrior.
One thing you'll notice is that the jako don't smile much. Despite that there actually fairly jolly people when not angry, problem is there angry about 85% of the time..

Fun fackt, the jako do not believe sex causes babies. Magical conception was developed long before that information was revealed to them, so they find no reason to believe it. Consequently they have no word for Father, the closest they get is Dag'ajig which means "Mothers Man/Men"

A kichuk from Didachuk.
There are no records of a kichuk dying of natural causes, they appear to be biologically immortal.
They had a vast empire once, but climate change forced them underwater with only Didachuk remaining above the waves, unlike some precursor races the Kichuk are totally fine with this state of affairs, They had their time in the sun, now it is a time of deep water.

admittedly, I haven't seen anything to suggest this beyond those bug precursors, but I'm willing to bet if Princess snake for a butt could hide the 'undead' part she could probably get away with showing that she has a snake tail instead of legs, so this costume is basically about wearing armor to hide the undead-part, since that snake-butt looks solid enough from the outside to not obviously be a skeleton.
Or she could just paint it living snake colours.

Soon stats will become a thing in the quest, and while for the most part they will be self explanatory for people familiar with this sort of thing I thought it best to do a run through for new peeps, so here we go.

Strength (Str)
How much you can lift and how hard you can hit, good for combat and weapons.

Constitution (Con)
How many hearts of health you have and how likely you are to ignore damage all together.

Agility (agl)
How flexible you are and how likely you are to hit things.

Magic (Mag)
The number of runes your capable of safely wielding, as well as your general knowledge of magical items and events.

Speed (spd)
How fast you are and how quickly you can react to events.

Luck (Lck)
How likely things are to go your way.

The average guy on the street has a base stat spread of 5 across the board, the princesses get +5 spread across stats the stats to start (i've already spread them among the princesses but others will be open to your choice ;) ) with background bonuses like so

Liik'il's Stats
Str 7 (5+2)
Con 20 (5+5+10 Undead bonus)
Agl 6 (5+1)
Spd 7 (5+2)
Mag 5
Lck 5/100 (as a undead her luck is boosted to max when in the land of the dead.)

Due to her being Hella crazy time older then everyone else Lil starts with 10 points to spend, so she's is slightly stronger and faster then average, but tougher then most plate metal armour...

Combat will use dice rolls and shenanigans an will most likely change as the quest continues, but it wont have simple hand waves to escape injury and mutilation...

No. 110459 ID: 72ed6b

If you average rolls, they're going to trend strongly towards the middle. That's going to produce odd results with a "roll under the stat" system and stats going from 1-10. Look at http://anydice.com/program/236a and switch to the "at most" view.

With an average of three dice, 78% of the time we'll roll under 6, and 91.6% of the time we'll roll under 7. If you average more than 3 dice, success becomes even more certain.

See https://pastebin.com/MhwpNLBm for more on quest dice.

I was gonna have you guys roll for things so that I don't just roll myself and post the numbers (avoids suspicion of shenanigans) but it looks like thatll just get messy, so here's the deal, ill roll myself and post the numbers and ill make sure to inform you of the skill a choice would use and how hard it will be to succeed. Hopefully that ill both look and flow a lot better, thanks for the patience so far :)

What elements does Earth Manipulation extend to exactly, if we were able to use it on a (seemingly) wooden door? Also, is there a limit to what Body Manipulation can do in a round of combat, or a cooldown on runes in combat?
No. 110828 ID: 89ae36

Most runes will have no cool down, but larger more complex runes may be subject too cool down's or time limits.

The elements as we know them, earth air ect, are all part of Force on Tarn so earth manipulation can, with skill, be used on anything found within soil.
unfortunatley thats somewhst beyond lil at this stage, she only targeted the door beacuse she failed the magic roll and forgot how to use it, and it only “worked” beacuse nightmares rules are even more slapdash then Tarns.

Orchilium: crystalised magic harvested mostly from mountaines. Powdered and used as paint to make runes.

Why would anyone care if it was cracked if they're just going to grind it into powder and snort it? paint with it?
No. 112160 ID: 314aa2

When orhilium cracks it earths some of its charge, lowring the magical stores within it. Runesmiths train to cut the crystal down in ways that have significantly less power loss then a natural Crack.

Theres also the possability that cracked orchilium may shatter, resulting in a rather nasty explosion.

And here is the final, more or less, map or Tarn.
The gold spots are capital cities, the bronze simply cities, not shown are towns and villages as there are thousands of the bloody things all over the place.

The grey lines are major roads, the deep blue is deep water and the light blue shallow water.

Taken from Parliamentary census 19/09/326

Province: Didachuk.
Species: Kichuk.

Population: Unknown
Gender division: Unknown
Age range/ avg: Unknown
Currency: Unknown
Political structure: Unknown
Religion: Unknown
Language: Unknown

Trade goods: Coral, Orchilium laced basalt, Sea grown Orchilium, Inflated leather balls (popular with children of all races) and Kik fruit (Highly nutritious and tasty, goes well with fish)

Landscape: A vast saltwater swamp notable for its think, hardy plant life and occasional spiral stone ruin.

My lord Hanolver.
As you can see our records on the Kichuk people's are severely lacking, but I would like to stress that this is no fault of our intelligence gathering methods, there simply is no intelligence to gather..

The species as a whole seems to be virulently opposed to forming any sort of identifiable social structures, both physical and mental, going as far as to have no spoken language what so ever!

While it could be assumed that they are simple beasts that share the Dreamers shape, as we all do, they frequently embark on 'trade missions' to all races they can reach, depositing large amounts of their produced goods in various warehouses and leaving without accepting pay or even acknowledging the people who address them!

I currently favour the theory that they have been cursed, by a element, Concept or even Nightmare itself and are attempting to atone for bringing such a doom down on them in some way.

My advice is to simply let them be, they pose little threat and their shipments provide a pleasant boon to Tarns economies. If they wish to live silent lives in their swamp then I wish them well.

Your loyal inspector.

Taken from the letters of Hans Thelmun 13/11/390

Province: The Land of the Dead
Species: The Dead

Population: Unknown, but modern mathmatics places it somewhere in the billions
Gender division: Unknown and somewhat redundant
Age range/ avg: 13/9000
Currency: None
Political structure: Kingship, theoretically..
Religion: Unknown
Language: Lengua de los muertos, Tongue of the Dead

Trade goods: The Dead export a frightningly strong alcohol known only as Los muertos, its unknown what its made from and frankly i belive that is a good thing.

They also export games of chance via ambassadors parties, the most common being games revolving around Cards.

Landscape: On the outside the land of the dead is a desert about 20km square, with one road running through the middle and nothing of interest visible.

On the inside however, it is a near infinite space housing a continent sized city resplendent in light and music, a land of mysteries and magic.

My lord Hanolver.
The land of the dead is a fascinating place, i could write entire libraries of books about the road of the dead alone without once mentioning the dead themselves!

While the name The dead dose conjure images of a dour and slow people they truth is the exact opposite, worries from life are forgotten, the weight of flesh removed from the lively and energetic bones beneath and hardly a moment goes by not filled with laughter and song.

And that's just on the road! i can only imagine what a riot of color and sound the city itself must be, alas i cannot reach it, nor can any other living being, no matter how far or fast you travel down the Road of the Dead the city is forever just on the horizon.

Whether this is intended to protect the Dead from the living or vice versa i do not know, but i can say it is a foolish man who would attack a people who outnumber his own, at a conservative estimate, four thousand to one.

As requested i include a portrait of one of the dead, taken as he passed through the camp, notice that the skull has already begun to change, the eye sockets sealing shut and the nose cavity darkening.
I believe that this

(The rest of the page is missing, having been carefully cut from the book)
No. 119941 ID: 008b25

I don't think I explained the whole Dead thing very well so ill lay it out clearly here.

Basically when a member of a sentient species dies there's a percentage chance they will get back up as one of the Dead. Their flesh rots off, their sockets fuse shut and they wake up knowing the language of the dead even if they have never heard it before. They also know the way to the Land of the Dead and that they should probably go there at some point.

How and why this happens is a total mystery but it seems to be connected to magic in some way, as during periods of strong magic flow (times when the dreamer is asleep) the chance of rising is somewhere around 1/50 or even as much as 1/20. When the magic flow dries to a trickle (the times the Dreamer is awake) the chance drops drastically to 1/500.

the only way to absolutely guarantee that someone wont get back up is to behead them, nothing can resurrect a beheaded corpse, no one knows why.

The land of the dead itself is both real and not real, being reachable only from the road of the dead and infinitely large despite being in a dessert only about 20km square from the outside.
No. 125654 ID: 2202fb

So, is this quest on hiatus or is it dead? It seemed interesting and since it went dark relatively recently i figured i would ask.
