You make an attempt to console the summoner, offering to show her how to summon an enchanter.

The summoner's face reddens again, and she bites at her lower lip. "I-I-I... I uh, I appreciate it but I don't think it would... work... out."

The half elf thief scoffs, and smirks. "Me an' the orc both tried, trust me. She only fucks monsters."

"That's not it!," shouts the summoner. "I just don't think I can summon people, okay? It would be weird! Just... magically pulling a human into battle while they're trying to take a bath or something."

It kind of makes sense. She can't learn her spells off of people, the same way you can't learn any enchantments from banging monsters.


The thief crosses her arms, keeping that smirk alight. "So you're sayin' if this mage could turn into a monster, ya wouldn't let 'em fuck ya?"

"Well!," the summoner huffs, "It would be a test then! I don't know if c-copulating with someone transmuted into a monster would enlighten me the same way. So... sure, maybe I would!"

The thief shrugs her shoulders, and holds her hands out. "Told ya. She only fucks monsters."

The summoner yells at the thief again.

Once she gets done, you ask the summoner if goblins count as monsters or people. You know a lot of goblins that would love to test some arcane boundaries.

"They're... kind of both?," the summoner answers. "I can already summon a goblin, but they don't comply like regular monsters do. They normally just start... uhhh... doing their own thing, no matter what orders I give them. When I summon regular monsters, they have to follow my commands. I would definitely NOT try to... um... become enlightened by goblins again."

"Hm," Ranse vocalizes to herself. "S-so... goblins. Goblinoid. Not humanoid. Unique."

The orc finally speaks up. "Orc. Big goblin."

The summoner scowls at the orc. "I told you, it's probably NOT the same! You showed me your penis already and I don't want to test it."

"If ya really just want someone to fuck a bunch o' goblins," the thief states, "ya oughta hit up the Entertainers Guild in Threeroads. Trust me. You'll find somebody."

Caught Thieves without a cause, see if the rancher wants to hire them? Or at least some community 'service.'
A guild full of spells by the sounds of things.

Offer for them to come along?
Ghest 18th May 2018, 12:05 AM edit delete reply
Doesn't hurt to ask but I kinda doubt the wannabe hulk and the thief with the unstealthy hair would stick around unless we're willing and able to pay them for every fight. The bonehead summoner might if we push the angle that we'll surely cross paths with several interesting monsters on our grand adventure.

Send a thief to catch a thief. I think the thief would come along if we told her about our quest to travel the world to find the infamous panty thief. Lots of places and people to rob. I just really want her to come along if the summoner joins, they're hilarious together.

I wonder if goblins would be more compliant if you summoned a goblin Chief, but it might not be worth pressing the matter.

Ask how long the summons last. If they stick around for awhile or indefinitely, maybe Summoner can make deal with the rancher to increase his stock. Also find out if she can summon Minitaurs for him the same way.
Cloudy 17th May 2018, 11:05 PM edit delete reply
Can’t increase the stock of chickens, they’re unfuckable. Can’t increase the ‘stock’ of minis because she seems to have less control over the more sentient beings. If she summoned one it could just as well walk off back to its farm. After punching her into tomorrow.

Tell her the location of the slime cave, and tell her to tell the King that (S)he has someone to practice with.
Guest 17th May 2018, 11:16 PM edit delete reply
yeah, Slime King seems a good candidate
Sonico 17th May 2018, 11:18 PM edit delete reply
I agree with sending the summoner to the Slime King so they both can get it on some good practice.
Nieki 17th May 2018, 10:52 PM edit delete reply
Well, we did get some information out of this, at least. And it doesn't sound like these are the guys after the disguise ingredients, either.

We should probably take her to the Rancher to swear she won't cause more trouble--and to prove we were good on our word--before we decide what to do next. It's worth building our reputation, at least a little bit.

We should also make sure Valley's okay. A bit of an Adventurer's Night--do a little sidequesting, get a few ideas--earn a good rest. Ranse deserves some special attention, too. (Seriously, a flamethrower!)

Might as well ask if they know anything about the potion thieves.

Turning into monsters should technically be something we could do.
Eyebrows 17th May 2018, 11:47 PM edit delete reply
Obviously we'd need the spell first though.
Fireopal 17th May 2018, 11:53 PM edit delete reply
Maybe we should go back to fuck the slime king. Maybe the summoner would be willing to do a threesome. Maybe fucking them both could inspire such a spell. And the summoner gets to summon a slime king. Win win.

+1 to Fireopal
Eyebrows 18th May 2018, 12:09 AM edit delete reply
She didn't say she wouldn't fuck Nast really just that it probably wouldn't let her summon him.
Fireopal 18th May 2018, 8:39 AM edit delete reply
Maybe we could suggest that if she fucked an enchanter, it could help her learn a spell that would make goblins more likely to obey her.
TerraNova 18th May 2018, 9:24 AM edit delete reply
That's a good point. She may just get a passive ability instead of a new summon, and passives are great in general. Also, her shyness is really cute.

To Threeroads! Tallyho!
Arislide 18th May 2018, 9:30 AM edit delete reply
There is room for some exchange of information here.

Ranse Inzo and the thief can compare notes, Vally and the Orc can spar, and of course us mages need to swap inspiration.

"The half elf thief scoffs, and smirks. "Me an' the orc both tried, trust me. She only fucks monsters.""

If the thief is that open minded, see if she's interested in fucking the enchanter. To officially seal the truce or whatever.

See if we can get the summoner to pay us for telling her the location of a king slime that would probably be willing to fuck her (from our earlier adventures that we never went back to).
