Once you've all rested a bit, you put your gear back on and head out. You haven't exactly picked a destination yet, but the first step is getting out of the woods.

Along the way, you bring up why somebody would steal underwear in the first place. Would that be useful in any sort of magic...?

"It would not be unprecedented," Lagrand replies. "I don't know of any spells that require panties in particular. However, illusionists need to have seen the subject of their mirages. Summoners sometimes do elaborate rituals--with material components--to contact more powerful beings, after which they can summon them with a normal casting. Weavers of magic innovate all the time... a magic that requires women's underwear sounds absurd on its face, but I wouldn't be shocked."

"Maybe he's just like, a pervert?," suggests Valley. "It doesn't have to be some huge scheme. The thief could totally just be a creepo."

Lagrand smiles slightly. "The thief's appearance mirroring Nast--to the voice, even, if the fairies were telling true--suggests some manner of magic at work, for certain."

"Naw," Valley replies. "Like, long lost twin brother. Twin SISTER with a disguise potion. Or, a master of disguise working for like... the thieves guild, and they're totally gonna sell the panties to princess fanboys. Nast from like, the future? But his time machine is powered by panties?"

It brings at least a small chuckle out of Lagrand. "Fair enough. The situation is so brazenly bizarre, we shouldn't rule out any one possibility."

"Myyy question," Valley begins, "is what we're doing next. Like, there's still bandits holding up all the disguise potions? That could, like, be part of it. We still need to deal with the goblins, but like... we don't have any ladies for them? Unless Nast wants to take a swing at it."

Lagrand tosses his hair from his eyes, glancing aside. "There are... women in the profession of pleasure in the larger cities. If we ventured further west, we could likely hire someone to do the dirty deed."

"OH, like, that's a good point, too," Valley points out. "We are totes brokerooski. We still need to like, hock all these funky mushrooms? We should totally have some time on Nast's disguise, so if we need it for anything, we might knock those out first."

i guess we can head to the alchemist and see if whichever sibling is running the shop has any interest in our mushroom haul. valley should be careful, though, she might be the target of some trouble considering she abandoned her post and let "the panty thief" get away.

"Sibling" sure.

But I agree that if anyone is interested in strange mushrooms its an Alchemist. Unless I forgot about a chef Mast ran into.

1. Panty thief is probably a sister, 2. Let's find another girl to impale herself on goblin dick, 3. Let's harvest mushrooms for cash, 4. Let's go explore the lands to the west and hone our skills to become a moral and respected archmage.

I'm pretty sure the panty thief is the potion-maker's sister. She keeps disguise potions, she keeps disappearing for lengths of time, she looks an awful lot like female Nast, she knows the shipment times, she wants sexual fluids for various reasons (which could be harvested from panties)...

Pretty sure it's her.

Eh, Nast seems to unlock abilities each time there's sex. This seems like a good opportunity for Nast to level up fast. To the chief.
Tentechoes 7th May 2018, 11:18 PM edit delete reply
Let go to the potion shop and see if any of the siblings wants the mushrooms :0 After that, lets impale ourselves to the chief and the tribe. We could get inspired to learn a new spell ;))

Also just shoving my thoughts here:
A couple of pages ago Nast said that random travellers and adventures recommended him to be an enchanter since they have magic experience. What if the panty thief saw Nast potential when he was young? He could have bought a heck ton of diguise potions and added a bunch of ingredients to it so that he can look like Nast? I think Nast could be a threat to him. Idk just putting thoughts around.

Seconding the impaling, and mushrooming, but suggesting impaling comes first.

To the goblin tribe.
Maybe offer Lagrand a Disguise Potion too.
This way we have 3 women for the tribe, should be enough even for the whole tribe.

sorry, goblin don't like "Moo-moo cow", senwe woukd only have two females, and I have the feeling that lagrand doesn't want to get fucked by a whole goblin tribe...

Chief said only no goblinwoman and no slimewoman, he said nothing against Valley. The only one who always said something against her was Inzo.

1. To the alchemist. Unload shrooms, maybe have water analyzed.

2. Ask alchemist whether disguise potions really can't be tweaked to produce a specific form.

3. Don't go to the goblin tribe.

4. Head west, try to catch the thief raiding the caravans.

5. Don't go to the goblin tribe.

+1 to this. Maybe the bandits will have a capital "S" Slut with them willing to to that
Memo 8th May 2018, 11:05 AM edit delete reply
+1 in addition, if we beat the thives we might be able to sell their stuff.. and there could be a bounty
Zinc 8th May 2018, 12:46 PM edit delete reply
+1 to tweaking the potion

Take note, once again, that sex seems to be the key to our power.

Sell shrooms, yes. Ask the alchemist if potions can be altered, yes.
See if they know anything about the potion-stealing bandits (how many & how aggressive are they, how long has this been going on, ...).

Stop by home in Peace Calling, check if there isn't some dirty family secret we're not privy too (are we adopted ? Is there a long-lost sister we're not aware of ? A cousin ? An ancestor using magic to stay young ? Anything ?).
Plus maybe there's someone for the goblinses there, who knows.

Also check with our own memory : have we pissed of someone that badly at any point ?
Iago 8th May 2018, 7:24 AM edit delete reply
And identify that "foul water" at some point.

Can the Engineer make a sex doll for the goblins?
Guost 8th May 2018, 9:21 AM edit delete reply
Out of what? I would not want one made from wood and vines.
Gallstone 8th May 2018, 11:34 AM edit delete reply
The question is what the gobs will fall for. ;)
Twyll 8th May 2018, 12:21 PM edit delete reply
This could especially work if we can have Lagrand help us enchant it to be lifelike enough to please them. Since he has nature powers, a sex doll made from wood might actually be something he could work with. And we could try to give it a bit of our je ne sais quois to seal the deal.
