One of the party's five younger sisters want to sing a song that will cause the apocalypse. What do you do?
Don't worry, if we get the other four to sing this anthem I conveniently know about, everything will be fine, trust me on this.
Sorry, but I can't let that happen. This is one fucked-up situation, but depending on the setting and how grim the GM is making things, there's a few solutions.
Not-so-grimdark: Talk to her and try and make her understand why this is a Very Bad Idea. Or beat the BBEG and defy the prophecy, rendering the song impotent.
High magic setting: Silence spell, permanence. Then other arrangements, possibly with an order of paladins, to make sure she has a comfortable life and no-one can get at her to counterspell things
Low magic setting: Keep her doped and in a constant dreamlike state... It's not good, but it's the kindest we can do.
Cyberpunkish/Modern: Surgically remove her vocal cords. We don't have much of a choice. Or a cybernetic implant that sends her to sleep whenever she tries to sing
Getting edgier: Cut out her tongue. Feel horrible and like a disgrace of a person for decades after
Out of time, no options left: Kill her as painlessly as I can. Spend the rest of my life lamenting the death of an innocent and trying to atone.
>An apocalypse (Ancient Greek: ἀποkάλυψις apokálypsis, from ἀπό and kαλύπτω meaning "uncovering"), translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation. In religious contexts it is usually a disclosure of something hidden.
I help her reveal the world to the people, and help usher in the dawn of a new age.
Hard Mode: You have to guess which sister is the one who wants to do it. The others don't know but are fiercely loyal to the others.
Yeah, with out spoiling too much. They're all afflicted with extreme sexual appetites. They actually created partners just to satisfy their needs.
Cept the brown haired one. She gets off with masochistic masturbation.
The game only goes down hill from there in the fucked up alley.
Not-so-grimdark: I smell magical girl teamup squad!
High Magic: Oh god... Sealed maiden spells for everyone, I guess. Why do they have to make this difficult?
Low Magic: OH GOD... Going to have to go rouge from the party, because there is no WAY I can convince ALL of them to keep their sisters doped to the nines... Kidnap the girls, scatter them to the four winds and remove their abilities to speak... Spend the rest of my life drinking my self into a remorseful stupor
Cyberpunkish/Modern: Same story as low fantasy. Have to sell my soul to a megacorp to do it. Chip them and make sure they have a happy life, in exchange for my loyal (and clinically depressed) service
Getting edgier: Alright, you girls just lost tongue privilages. Where the hell is the liquor it's the only thing that makes the nightmares stop for a while...
Out of time, no options left: Now I have FIVE deaths on my hands. Yeah, I'm going to spend my life 'atoning' without really considering what I did. The moment it catches up with me, there's going to be a sixth corpse from all this.
There must surely be a prophesied way to counter that song...
give praise for my daughters for their cleverness
>want to sing a song that will cause the apocalypse
Do they know the song? If not, I'll just call her an idiot for wanting to cause the apocalypse.
If they actually do know it, I'll cut out their goddamn tongues for saying such a thing seriously.
Is it safe to assume that 4 is /tg/'s favorite intoner?
She's mine at least.
Caim is the best thing to come out of Drakengard though.
There was the magical enslavement thing, but it was mainly his screwed up tastes.
That's the funny thing about them. They're both fucking disgusting and get along perfectly when they have a chance to do something nasty together like eating a giant pus spewing undead crab, he just hated the sex because SHE wasn't a pus spewing zombie.
When she actually comes back as a zombie in one of the routes he immediately pops a boner and switches sides. That was literally the only thing stopping him from loving her.
>Rock and Rule
You, yes you.
You is Mah Nigga!
The rest may follow the example of the one who wants to sing the song. So in other words: purge them all.
I beat them to it.
With TTK they got around to explaining a few things in-game, adding flavor text to things and the quests did a lot to provide story.
The Grimoire is now for deep dives, as opposed to ALL of the story.
>One of the party's five younger sisters want to sing a song that will cause the apocalypse. What do you do?
There are many female related problems in the world that can be solved simply by shoving a dick in her mouth. This is one of them.
>If it was as simple as cutting their tongues out, trust me, this would have been far smoother than it was.
Please don't tell me it was some kind of metaphorical "song" that they don't need vocal organs to sing.
>billions of people will die but you must sacrifice A PRETTY GIRL
The billions are usually offscreen, making their lives next to worthless in fiction-morality. On the other hand the girl is hawt, has lots of screentime, and probably a backstory too, so fiction-morality dictates that her life is at least as valuable as those of all the other people.
Challenge them to a song duel and sing the everloving shit outta them. Sing them so hard they won't be walking straight for years. Sing so hard, that the personifications of anime's power of friendship just stares in awe, not able to say anything other than mindlessly repeating "holy shit".
> Background PNJ found a special corps of beautiful women and men to be offered to main characters tempted by such "dilemma" and other "sexy BBEG".
> "You will have your damn waifu anyway so... DO THE FUCKING JOB."
>Aurica is worst girl
M8 u dont just say that and leave with face intact.
If your response is anything but Ultimate Murder than you really aren't living up to Caim's legacy.
Murder. No seriously, All of the intoners had something of them grow exceptionally fast.
One: her senses, to the point even her clothes hurt her.
Two: her muscles, she would accidentally rip doors off their hinges regularly.
Three: Her Hair. That's why she carried the scissors around orignially
Four: her fingernails. I think it was only on one hand which is why she wears the gauntlet.
Five: Her Tits. yep
And Zero's is strangely her bloodlust.
Based on many posts, especially >>44735812, I cannot tell if this is intentionally trying to make a statement using Slaaneshy-levels of excess to make some kind of statement or someone just REALLY wants incest murder porn in a video game.
Music seems really good, though.
Except that Nowe actually manages to make the world a better place, in the end.
And Manah certainly does fuck up quite a bit, but she is honestly attempting to redeem herself for her actions.
I mean, sure, most of the characters are evil, but not all of them are.
Yoko Taro is making a statement. He's just so unsubtlely subtle about is that most people don't get it.
>Interviews via sock puppet
I wish Yoko Taro was my GM.
A lot of people forget that Manah was still being sock puppeted by the watchers through 80% of the game, so her fuck ups really weren't her doing.
>Watched his friend slip from a roof and fall to his death.
>looks back on it and finds it humorous that his friend's body was humping the air.
Nowe only managed to improve things in a single ending, and through deus ex machina.
Not to mention it would never have existed in the first place had Yoko Taro still been working on it.
Taro's involvement in dod2 was a cutscene director. He gave us Caim stabbing a man in the dick so hard it killed the grim reaper.
Caim is legit one of the best protagonists from the ps2 era. Even mute and kind of looking like a melting potato, Caim was more expressive and charismatic than most other protags. Hell he even beats a lot now days.
I say strangely because for the others their uncontrolled growth was physical. Zero's was psychological. I guess its because she's the original intoner.
