Imagine this, friends:
You find yourself suddenly stuck in the world of Elder Tales with no means of escape or idea as to how it happened. All food tastes like cardboard, all drinks are basically flat water and you don't even have the ability to sate whatever lust you might be carrying around with you. You are miserable, cut off from almost everyone you have ever known and loved and you have nothing but the knowledge that you can do exactly jack-shit about it.
But then you see the sandwich.
Unlike everything else in this world, you can smell the aroma of the warm condiments, you can feel the crispness of the fresh vegetables and the juicy drippings of the tender meat, the gentle crunch of the freshly baked bread, letting you feel comfort that until the exact moment you saw it you had no reason to think was not lost to you forever.
And there is only one.
And for all you know there will ever only be one.
What do you do?
Find the Dwarf and trade sandwich for some awesome equipment
>you don't even have the ability to sate whatever lust you might be carrying around with you
I can jerk off to my imagination.
And they do have genitals, Akatsuki was strongly implied to have had a dick when she was a man.
Also, about food. Do fruit and stuff still taste? No one has to prepare apples.
I'd definitely just have been eating edible ingredients separately for the most part.
But ingredients were explicitly stated to have taste. And besides it was bullshit how no chef bothered trying manual cooking when they were stuck in the fucking game. That shit would be discovered within days but I suppose I can let it slip because japs.
I don't remember Misa being so cute, she seemed pretty serious
Find Tetra and share it with him in exchange for sexual favors
>But then you see the sandwich.
>What do you do?
What fucking else?
Soak it with all your
joy and love.
I don't think you need to give him the sandwich to get sexual favors.
Throw the sandwich on the gronund and squish it in the dirst with my boot, because giving people unnecessary desires brings only cancer. then go back running in the forest killing everything I met, player or mob.
I marathoned the first season yesterday and just caught up with the second season.
How and why in the fuck did I drop this while it was airing last year? Am I retarded? Because it was seriously fun as hell and all the characters are just great.
Rundelhaus and Isuzu are the best.
Okay I think I saw this coming.
Give it to Misa and experience her lavish praise
MMOs are pretty fucking mainstream nowadays. You'd be surprised how many chicks are getting into them these days.
That said, it still leans towards being predominantly dicks. I'd say it's a good 60-40 or 70-30 M to F ratio.
Everyone who crossplayed and couldn't get their hands on the shapeshift potion. Seeing how those things are apparently REALLY rare... I'd say about twenty percent of the girls? It's a wild guess.
There's actually a big bunch of classes that can use spears. Every physical attack class, plus druids.
Take sandwich to the harem guild
Exchange sandwich for harem
I imagine it must've sucked for some guys. Playing as a girl doesn't necessarily mean they get off on crossplaying or they genuinely want to have vaginas.
Personally, I usually create female avatars in MMOs because if I'm gonna stare at a screen for hours at end and play dressup with a character, it might as well be a cute girl. And this is actually a rather common sentiment among alot of male players.
I wonder how some of these kind of players felt went they realized they were doomed to be stuck as cute girls in Elder Tale.
I normally make female characters but have no particular desire to trade my dick in for tits and menstruation
But I don't think I'd be that put out by it if it happened, especially if it came with an eternally youthful, attractive, super powerful magical immortal body in perfect health.
Anyone that would complain about that is retarded
>doomed to be stuck as cute girls
>to be stuck as cute girls
Nigga are you serious? How can you even be on /a/ without wanting to be a cute little girl?
>Akatsuki's voice was still the same when she was a man
Wait nevermind, now the idea started to sound a little scary.
So does Elder Tale tackle mental breakdowns or psychological deterioration due to being stuck in another gender's body?
I guess some players might enjoy it, but like Akatsuki at the beginning, alot of players didn't seem to enjoy having an entirely different body to what they used to have and unlike Akatsuki, they don't have the luxury of that body readjustment potion.
Not that anon, but I love my dick and not having to wait in front of a line whenever I need to go to a restroom.
Are you sure that's a good idea?
I have 2 female characters I use when playing my mmorpg but because of Log Horizon. I made a new character of a tall dark skinned male elf incase I get in a situation where I get stuck like that. Then I can savor all the delicious female NPCs.
It changes over time to match your new body
Presumably your face does too, because that changed to be more in line with reality as well.
There must have been some really strange females walking around for the first couple weeks
Does Post-Apocalypse Elder Tale emulate the typical biological actions of a certain gender's body?
Because while I'm all for being transformed into a Spell Blasting Loli, if it comes with menstruation and having to wait in line for female restrooms. I might reconsider.
Again, are you sure that's a good idea?
Your in game face was changed to look like your real life face.
Shiroe's character didn't have evil spooky eyes, and Naotsugu had a scar that vanished.
I only just started reading the LNs, so all the stuff they mention at the beginning is still fresh in my mind
You would only ask for a shoulder rub?
I'd ask her to
make me coffee
Is wrong to be jealous of him?
>doesnt have a beard
>is wearing a mask that completely covers the lower half of her face
It is impossible to not be jealous of the man
Yes and no. Tetra is just one of the people that was playing a female character when everyone got stuck. Tetra is female, pretty much the opposite situation as Akatsuki was in, except they're okay with it AFAIK.
It's implied that "crossplay" was rare, but I have to imagine there are at least a few dozen or few hundred stuck that way out of the 40k on the Yamato server.
I've seen from multiple sources that crossplay is implied to be rare in Japan for MMOs, but fuck if I can verify that. Certainly in something like TERA Online where Elin are by far the most common race, 98% of them you fucking know are really guys.
I think it's more the case of, in the process of exploring the concept, the Mamare just decided to focus on a couple of characters like Akatsuki (briefly) and Tetra, and whether or not there are many more like them is just up to the imagination of the viewer, and doesn't really matter one way or the other.
Not all of the design changes are good, but Nazuna looks worlds better in S2. Still not LN/Manga good, but good.
Pic unrelated besides dropping some more fluff in here
Split it between the two best girls in exchange for threesome
>Girls being stuck in a Guy's body.
This is my fetish. Also, gender fixing potions aren't as rare as Shiroe made them out to be.
You know that gay asshole who was the first major arc villain in Soujirou's WWB spinoff manga?
She was really a cute little girl IRL. And now she has the appearance in-game to match too.
>Her Friends / Party Members are the same assholes who attempted to rape Souji's harem in the earlier chapters
They were horny bastards. Jesus, they must rape Magus every night now.
Give it to the girls who desperately needs a fucking sandwich holy shit
That's kind of a pretty big deal to introduce without (to the best of my knowledge) going into specifics.
Does that mean there's menstruation and ovulation? Are stats effected by this?
Do female characters get the 'Bleeding' status effect for a week out of every month or can it be treated like a normal wound?
The questions are endless!
>Do female characters get the 'Bleeding' status effect for a week out of every month or can it be treated like a normal wound?
Christ it would suck to be a Healer if this is the case
They better have BC or Abortion clinics in the Database or else someone's going to have to take responsibility. I'd be scared to give birth in an MMO. Unless they have daycares, being a mom would be a shitty gaming experience.
>character constantly leaking blood for a week
>has no effect on stats
I call shenanigans
If you abort the fetus, does it respawn in the Cathedral?
Why did you make me think of such things
G-d help me, /a/, I want to rape Tetra. Am I a bad person?
>stake out Cathedral
>watch mounds of fetus corpses pile up after they die repeatedly
>use magic to convert them to my minions
>attack irresponsible adventurers with an army comrpised of the corpses of their unborn children
This is some Lovecraft shit right here
maybe they just age really slowly
Like, at the rate of the real world, which has had 10 years pass for nearly 300 years in universe.
I hope they do anyway, true immortality is not something I wish upon anyone
Guys if I kill myself will I come back to life in the Log Horizon world as an adventurer and have the chance to have sex with best girl Tetra?
Instead of Capital punishment if you commit crimes you just get chained up in the Cathedral to watch the constant cavalcade of the same fetuses dying over and over and over
what would happen if they installed a death trap at the spawn point in the cathedral?
Would have to be one hell of a powerful trap to take out the upper-crust players.
Or hell even the mid-tier ones.
To non-noobs it would just be annoying and then they'd dismantle it, track down who set it and strap them to the alter so that fetuses would respawn on their face or something
If Akatsuki had a complex about her height why didn't she give herself a taller body when she reset her avatar?
Actually how would resetting and customizing your avatar work post Apocalypse anyways? Presumably before there were just a bunch of sliders and options but now that Elder Tale is 100% realistic how would that work?
Because she wanted a body that fit her real body more closely, because having a body that's different from your real one takes a long time to get properly used to.
Shiroe mentioned that even with a few centimeters, it felt really weird being taller, let alone Akatsuki, whose character is described as being about 30cm taller than her real self.
Because it's awkward to suddenly walk in a bigger body or something. She didn't think too much about it probably and just wanted to be a girl again.
And adventurers still have access to the UI somehow. It's magic.
Oops wrong picture
You landers keep messing up
One of those Wolf guys as a Monk. Because your own fists are the manliest weapon you can have.
And the subclass... probably a blacksmith. They're always useful.
Wow fuck you.
She's clearly dedicated to the meaty combo
>full fucking episode about akatsuki suffering
why does she deserve this
will akatsuki ever win the shiroebowl
That is equally useless, not more
Realistically anything you do in this game that doesn't give you XP, gear, cash or items you might as well spend masturbating because at least you get something from that
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you lander bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the obstacle course, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on PKers, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in instakill warfare and I'm the top assassin in the entire Log Horizon guild. You are nothing to me but just another explosion of bubbles. I will send you to the moon with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this server, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the databese? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of lander spies across Eastal and your friendlist is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, gobbo. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your memories. You'll be fucking mindbroken, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my first tool bar. Not only am I extensively trained in moe combat, but I have access to the support of the round table and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of Yamamoto you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit huge numbers all over you and you will drown in it. Your data's all gone, kiddo.
Okay, get this: Race of Ritual Sorcerer. You get literally no HP, but just think of all the MP and magic shit you get.
10/10 glass cannon right there.
I can't come at you, friend, for I love both of them as well.
It's a new character, dumbass. Same a Roe2
And then you are known as the kitten killer and all of the cute girls hate you
Still doesn't look impressive. Was this guy really undergeared?
Their HP aren't that different either. Race perks probably don't matter too much.
If the rules of the trpg are at least similar to the ingame abilities, race of ritual have a bunch of long cool down [double a spells damage], [remove cooldown of one other ability], [name an ability, it now always does increased damage]
A typical Race of Ritual spellcaster should probably have inverse values of Demikas' MP/HP here. So 4627 HP and 16385 MP.
That fucking HP would at least explain why no one wants to play one.
Spellcaster classes are pretty much all the same.
>you will never have an assassin hide behind your back because of shyness
I want Akatsukis suffering arc to end and see her smile again
Serara's chubby, yeah. It's hardly a secret.
I wish I could read moonrunes right now
Guard who turned mad due to the flavour text on his sword and he start killing Adventurers for giggles.
The reason he doesn't get attacked by other guards is because guards normally only attack for a "just" reason, which is why guards don't respond to other guard attacks.
