Because the other discussion thread was for Strange bedfellows and was kind of cluttered, I guess?

Either way, feel free to discuss who to eat / fuck / fuck and eat here.

Also, vote for best husbando! (I mean, there’s like only one other girl introduced yet so…)

Is anyone else legit concerned about the 7 enemies Ema currently has? I legit can't think of 7, but here's my attempt:

Duchess (fucking duh)
Vamp-Hiver (saw us drag Tana)
Prosti-Food (clearly has irons in the fire that we won't like)
Dick Guardswoman (on the "eat soon" list - because the prostitute suddenly became more urgent, you get to live yet another day)
Tunu(???) (currently friendly, but if she finds out...)
Yate(???) (obtuse as hel and not telling us everything, doubt he's one of the 3 allies)
Madame Whatsherbeak (did some shit, possibly knows what we are, if not who)

... Okay, some of those were last minute, but whatever. I was serious about those question marks; is there anyone I'm missing? I'm thinking the 3 allies might be Oran, Karn, and either Danus or Justinia.

>Dick Guardswoman (on the "eat soon" list - because the prostitute suddenly became more urgent, you get to live yet another day)
My money is on the prostitute planning to or having already sold Ema out to (Dick Guardswoman) Terroza, so if Ema followed through on a meeting with Terroza she'd be walking into a trap and ambushed.

>Yate(???) (obtuse as hel and not telling us everything, doubt he's one of the 3 allies)
I'm on the fence about Yate's position. Like, it gave the herbalist those totems of Past, Present and Future (The "Continuity Brothers" we know from Strange Bedfellows) to protect her, but are they to protect her from those three knowing of her and/or meddling with her, or protect her from those that oppose those three brothers? Is Yate one of their champions, one of their opponents, or a double-crosser one way or another? We have to find out more first.

So i guess we need to pay more atention to Oran and Kharn. Those two are a dificult bunch eh?

Look, as far as I'm concerned, we dealt with a perceived threat, we chose violent actions to maximize expected success, but most importantly, it's done. I just want to talk about future actions stemming from this.

For me, this isn't about righteousness or justice. It's about making the best out of a bad situation. You're trying to state a finality of the opinions from this encounter, a sort of "absolute" in our justification of what we chose. That's what scares me; by justifying every portion of our actions with a "they deserved it" attitude, we also mask the various aspects of our decision.

You cannot perfectly describe this situation with one "I killed a bad guy" sentence, it was made of different factors and actions:
1) We recognized them as members of the guard, and chose to make them our enemies.
2) We used supernatural powers and physical eavesdropping to confirm their guilt in child murder, with minimal probability of error.
3) We had multiple pacifist options, but we perceived the guards as a threat to the safety of others, including allied forces.
4) We had the option to spare them, but doing so would add complications, the most pressing of which was time.
5) Consuming them would cause personal problems with hunger increase.
Do you doubt my train of thought?

Good, so do I. Trying to tie all of this up with a "my actions were considered good, therefore all of this was good and rational" is something you celebrate at a Deadpool movie, not real life.

You are right, if we are concern with morality painting the problem in black and white is too simplistic. I wouldn't approve this line of reasoning in the real world mostly because of the lack of Ema's supernatural moral detection.
Of course, the biggest problem with "I killed a bad guy" sentence isn't that it can't be correct, but we can't trust it to be true coming from others. Since in this case Ema would be justify her actions to herself I don't see the problem. But, if we ever try to explain to others better to stick to the facts.

Ultimately the problem isn't about interpret her actions as necessarily good, but taking responsibility for what could be though as collateral damage. Ema isn't good, she is a morally dubious monster, and her purpose is to punish the guilt, not be the hero.
It's possible that the consequences of killing murderous oppressive guards is ultimately bad because there could be other threats that justify a tyrannical regime. That doesn't matter to Ema, because her goal is to dispense justice, severe punishment for severe crimes.

Maybe a confrontation with the kid could be interesting to the story, but it's not beneficial to Ema nor to the boy, so why would Ema seek this encounter? As fas as I'm concerns she should try her best to avoid such confrontation and only face it if led by events outside her control.

So there is a decision to make about the child? This will not only make changes in the world around Ema, but probalby within Ema herself. We can influence this aspect of "monster that just enacts justice" or "someone that tries to make the right thing". I think it is an interesting view that we should keep in consideretion, for the roleplaying aspect of the story.

I have some society questions.
So do Sakkilian males have what we would consider feminine voices, and females masculine?

Is human masculinity and femininity the same as how we know it?

Which gender is dominant for Varkians? Most birds have dominant males, but the Varkians seen so far seem to indicate otherwise (or they could either just be into that or it could be a case of when in rome do as the romans do). Was Vivian really a peacock? She seemed more like a bluejay and female peacocks are usually brown.

From what I have gathered, Serpens male and females are both submissive and the third sex is the dominant one (and has a hood), is this correct?

>So do Sakkilian males have what we would consider feminine voices, and females masculine?
Sakkilian voices are rather similar to human ones, not counting that females usually have a bit deeper voices thanks to their size, though preferences are rather different. Females usually prefer males with lighter, softer voices while males prefer females with deeper voices.
>Is human masculinity and femininity the same as how we know it?
Human centric societies are generally more male dominant, though the constant exposure to the other species cultures does change things, both ways.

>Which gender is dominant for Varkians?
Neither, for the most part. They do easily change depending on outside factors, which is why they are more female dominant in a Sakkilian society as seen in Feast of Souls.
>Was Vivian really a peacock?
Vivi was blue with green tail feathers. Make of it what you will, but Varkian aren’t exactly like other species of birds, are they?
>Hang on, the Vivian thing makes sense if she was born male and had a sex change rather than being born as a female with a penis.
Vivian was born male in a female centric society, in a rather well off family that really wanted a daughter. Her parents tried to remedy this fact with magic and a strict upbringing, which left Vivi less than… well afterwards.

>From what I have gathered, Serpens male and females are both submissive and the third sex is the dominant one (and has a hood), is this correct?
While the third sex, Ovales, are generally a bit bigger than the others, Serpents generally value skill and expertise above things like looks and size. That’s why Tunu is attracted to Oran and is willing to look past his awkwardness and lack of arm, as someone with his kind of education and mind is very attractive to someone that lack one like her.

In fact, Tunu does kind of desire for Oran to be the more dominant one in the relationship, as she sees him as someone above her, but as Oran hasn’t had a lot of exposure to Serpents culture and norms (or any other norms about romance), he is a bit lost on what to do.

No. 126357 ID: a9af05

Hey, Kaktus, considering how the quest is starting to look like the military is redacting their secrets, I think it might be best if from now on we stay in control of Ema instead of switching to the person we want her to eat. That'll help cut down on the people purposefully sabatoging the quest.

I mean, it was an interesting mechanic when it first showed up with Tunu, but now it's getting really annoying with Terroza.

But if you really want to keep switching away from Ema, then it might be better to switch to someone that could help Ema eat whoever she's targeting.
>>
No. 126358 ID: b1b4f3

Either that, or keep these swaps short? Like, okay, seeing through the prey's eyes as they inevitably get eaten is fun for a while but the longer we stay with them the more people are going to either get bored or frustrated due to the prey not being dead yet and thus our suggestions being mostly pointless. I mean the only thing we seem to be accomplishing right now is inflicting temporary harm on the birdbrain or the glutton.
>>

Yeah, I'm in favor of these.
The swaps can be fun, but when it's someone we're about to eat, it doesn't feel like it's doing much other than wasting time.
Playing as Drago or Oran is fine, but Soul-Vore Victim #23 tends to be rather boring because we know exactly what's gonna happen in a moment.

I personally don't see it as "sabotaging", but i do have to agree, it is getting kind of tedious, all this arguing. Making the swap of characters shorter might help. We obviously can't agree on how to interact with the antagonists.

>Kaktus, is there any real logic behind when Ema gets too hungry? It seems arbitrary and unpredictable.
The three major factors are time, power usage and sheer gluttony.
She will get hungrier over time, which is pretty obvious, but she will also need to feed more often the more she uses her powers, so things like regrowing limbs will pretty much starve her.
She will also react to the presence of really evil people, as her body really wants to enact Justice upon them and thus it makes itself hungry to force her to feed.

>Question: why aren't the swords directing Ema towards older and weaker sinners more often? Everyone she has eaten so far has been relatively young and hip.
The only one the sword is directing her towards is whoever is responsible for the slaughter of her village. As for old, evil people, they are generally people with power and not some thug running around in the street, thus making them harder targets to find. Heck, the baroness is supposed to be someone that’s beyond their middle age.

Hey, Kaktus, I enjoy your quests, but lately it feels like you're needlessly slowing things down for some reason.

Because it feels like everytime we want to do something, we're always interrupted by 9 or 10 different things all at the exact same time before we get a chance to do the 1 thing we wanted to do. Couldn't you just let us do something without any complications for once?

Like what's happening right now. All we had to do was go into Tertian's house, grab what we needed, and get out. Then we got interrupted by the bug on a drug. Now I'm just waiting for the other 8 or 9 interruptions before we can finally get what we want and leave. And then get some more interruptions before we finally get to sleep.

>Hey, Kaktus, I enjoy your quests, but lately it feels like you're needlessly slowing things down for some reason.
The main reason is probably because of my awful posting schedule recently. When everything takes something like three days to even start to resolve then even small discretions gets cumbersome. That and the bad schedule make me come up with too much unnecessary crap between updates. I hope I’ll get some motivation back and start updating more regular in the future.

>I'm somewhat off put by Athena's looks. I get she's a weird hybrid, but everyone knows that bird + lizard = velociraptor, not "normal lizard with feathers".
Personally, I’m not too happy with her either. The main problem is that she’s supposed to look like Xuv, but her design doesn’t work as well without the skull. I’ve think I’ve said it before, but she might get a design overhaul in the future if she gets a bigger role in the quest.

>Needs more foodstuff mugs. I suggest you trace over some food porn.
I might just make a few more food mugs in the future, just to enable multiple unnamed enemies in one conversation. Maybe one for each species? Hmm…
>Foodporn is the only thing that turns me on.

This quest is full of lies!

"Eat people to gain powers" is one of the main things this quest promises and yet, we haven't gotten any new powers! The only thing we got were memories of old lives, memories of people we ate, and the forms of the people we ate to turn into.

We can't even use Terroza's fire magic, even though we have her memories, because Kaktus said, "No you can't use her magic because you don't know how to use magic. But instead you can have a chance of Terroza's personality taking control of you!"

Come on! If we have Terroza's memories, then we should also have her memories of how to use her magic! Let us use her fire magic!

Or at least give us some new undead ability we can use, like being able to paralyze people from long range by locking eyes with them or being able to hypnotize someone into telling us what we want to know or just give us something so that we don't have to keep trying five hundred different things to get a single scrap of information that we need to progress the story!

>"Eat people to gain powers" is one of the main things this quest promises and yet, we haven't gotten any new powers!
You guys did choose to focus on strength at the beginning, so Ema has been steadily become stronger and a faster eater as the quest goes on. The second fight with Karn was supposed to show this off, but people didn’t want to show off any inhuman strength (Insakkilian strength?), making it a lot more even instead of the curbstomp battle it would have been. Ema has gone from just being able to throw a persona few meters and having to paralyze and slowly eat someone to ripping apart safes with her bare hands and eating people in mid-fall, after all.
>We can't even use Terroza's fire magic.
That would be something a more intelligent person would be able to do. Ema instead learned about her strength magic.
>Kaktus has been roadblocking us a lot more in this quest than in others.
I’m sorry you feel that way. I’ve not trying to go out of my way to block any path, but this quest has recently been rather slow and stale with its plot. I’ve tried to remedy this by rushing a bit through the Uredo / library thing, so we’ll see if things get a bit better.

>It feels nice knowing that my silly alliteration has become a running joke now.
Bad busty bandit bird babes deserves dauntless diabolical diatribes.
>But the real question is, now that we know we can combine forms, once we interrogate all of the info out of them, how thicc will we be when we combine all three of the thicc thief thots forms?
Why stop at three when we can go even further? Maybe add a bit of Justina to the mix and sprinkle some Tertian on top. Let’s create the bum to end all bums! LET IT BECOME THE BUM TO END ALL WORLDS!

Not yet. She hasn't really done anything to deserve getting eaten.

>and sprinkle some Tertian on top.
I don't think a Varkian and Sakkilian hybrid form would be good for us to use. We'd have to keep ourselves completely covered all the time, just like Athena.

>Let’s create the bum to end all bums! LET IT BECOME THE BUM TO END ALL WORLDS!
I am both terrified and amused at the thought of doing that.

So we can’t Falcon Fire Punch anyone? That sucks!

>We’d always have to completely covered like Athena.
I’ve gotta agree. We’re trying to not stand out too much.

Hey, speaking of Athena, didn’t Kaktus mention giving her a design overhaul? I was thinking of how that could be explained in the quest and I thought of something.

She was looking for transformation potions in Oran’s shop, right? What if they weren’t for making her look like a regular Sakkilian? Maybe the potion is for keeping her current hybrid form? And when the potion wears off, she changes back to her normal form, which can be Kaktus’ new overhauled design for her.

How does that sound?

>Create the ultimate bum!
Couldn't we spread it all around instead of focusing only on the bum? Like, we could make a more well-rounded (literally) form, to create a fat Varkian lady.

I could see us being able to pull off a jolly fat Varkian lady with a "D'ohohohoho" anime laugh.

Huh. We met Corvus Inkfeather, but who's Karkan Inkfeather?

Probably his brother that died in Dalriver.

No, Corvus' brother's name is- er- was Corvak. Ema thought about him midway through >>/quest/943155 and his name was also in the first thread of the quest.

>>131044
But also in >>/quest/943155 Ema mentioned that she didn't think that Corvak and Corvus' father was in Dalriver at the time of the massacre. Their father's name might be, or might have been, Karkan Inkfeather.

Ema also remembered that Corvus and Corvak's father traveled all the time back then and that he is (or was) black feathered while their mother was wasn't. (I'm using both the present and past tenses because we don't know if their father is still alive.)

And Corvus decided to drop his family name... either to put Dalriver behind him or because of some disagreement with his father.
I have a feeling we'll be meeting Karkan at some point.

With how much he was away from Dalriver, it's possible that he put his family there to keep 'em safe from whatever he was doing. Considering the quote from the start of thread 4, he may be (or have been) a vampire hunter or he's (or was) somehow involved in destroying or attempting to enslave Yate's kind.

Of course this is a whole lot of speculation and it might just pan out that he was a travelling merchant or some other benign job that kept him away from his family and Dalriver for almost all the time back then.

Of course Oran still refuses to change. Even after all the warnings, he's still being an idiot. He even refused to change when we were controlling him that one time!

It's almost like Kaktus is purposefully making Oran act like an idiot because he doesn't want us to try and help certain characters become better people. I refuse to believe that Oran is dumb enough to continue making drugs when an undead monster is telling him to stop and has threatened him multiple times!

That's some really bad writing.

Oran's problem is that he's greedy, lies habitually, and has very little sympathy for others.

I *was* put off that we convinced him to stop selling drugs while controlling him, then that got retconned or something.

That’s true, but shouldn’t something as important as wanting to not die override all of that and get him to stop? Because you’d think a death threat would’ve worked the first time and not need to be repeated like we’ve been doing with Oran.

He also thinks he's better at lying than he actually is and thought he could just hide it.
>>
No. 131058 ID: 91ee5f

>>131057
But we’ve also proven to him that he can’t lie to us. So why did he continue to attempt to lie to us when he knows he can’t fool us?

We shouldn't push Oran too hard. Keep in mind they always have the choice of reporting Ema to the guards.

They didn't do that with Tunu, they won't do it with Ema. Besides, what are they going to say? There is this lady that wants to eat me? She has done it before?

Still doesn't change the fact that threatening to punish Karn for Oran's actions is wrong. We shouldn't have done that.
