(New Thread already? Wow. Old Thread stopped bumping -->


You eat your food and down the juice, then head to the doorway. On the way one of the Innkeepers Daughters stops you.

"Ello sir, I'm sorry but I over-eard you asking my mother about the last person who used your room." She says to you. "could I ask why you want to know?"



you will have to talk with her delicate about the subject..
like telling that you had a contact and you seen something inside.. telling slowly part by part and not in a big bang.. or she will break if it was something close to them.


Tread carefully, but note that she might be interested in learning about the sibling that her parents try to forget? She might want the same answers you do.


>>1760599 explain carefully that you may have either seen a spirit, or had a bad dream.


Obviously she suspects something.
Don't mention the ghost encounter first.
Tell her you dreamt of a person you don't know who somehow seems to be linked to that room.
See if you can get some info from her about who this person could be.
If she knows about the ghost, she will probably mention it and then you can talk more openly about the subject.
If she doesn't know about the ghost, ask other people about the room first.


The wife looks haggard by guilt or trauma, the daughter doesn't seem burdened.

Ergo, I'd say just tell her that you met a spirit of a doe that hadn't come to a good end. I wouldn't share the details of the slit throat.

You tell her that the room got very cold in the middle of the night, and that you felt like someone was watching you.

"Did you... see anything?" She asks.

You look at her for a moment and nod, then slowly tell about the ghostly visit you had.

"Gaelle..." She says to herself, her eyes looking down and to the side.



Make a leap, it may pay off.

"Do you miss your sister?"


"Do you miss your friend?"


>>1760643 inquire about Gaelle.

If necessary, tell her you know two unique individuals who may be able to help...

May need to ask Lisha if she can send a note to Miranda or the Voodoo fox chick. (forgot her name...)



Just ask about the ghost figure only. We don't need to get the voodoo people involved, since they probably know we fucked them both.



I say strip in front of her. Since that's what we did to the other ladies. XD


>>1760694 haw about no, you crazy dutch bastard.


it's been too long without gratuitous sex

sex scene plz




Invite her to your quarters for some se- I mean spiritual outreaching...

You ask who Gaelle is.

"She is... was my sister..." She says, her voice starting to choke up. "Mother, Father, myself and Elle, my 3rd sister, took a ship to the main land for a 5 day oliday. Gaelle ated sailing, got sea sick awful, and so she stayed behind to look after the Inn..." Tears start to form in her eyes. "When we returned we found er in the same room you stayed in... someone cut her throat... and wrote orrible things on the walls in the room."



okay this is getting cool.

ask her what she's found out, if there's any clues, and apologize for prying. make her feel comfortable and console her so she's more likely to share with you.

I think its time for rat justice. Lets find out who committed the heinous deed.





it was the gardener,
with the spoon,
in the kitchen.

Cluedo solved!



Well this is a clear mission, seems the ghost needed to do or say something, maybe mention that.

Maybe you can't get that disturbing event go without solving.

Ask if she/they would like you to try to find out what the ghost wants later on, but can't guarantee anything since you don't know if you can get the fox priestess to help.
Could use the positive karma points just in case anyway.

You wipe the tears from her eyes and tell her your sorry that such an awful thing to happen to her sister. You then ask if she has any idea who could have done such a thing.

She shakes her head no. "Gaelle was such a friendly sort. Don't know who would ave done such a thing to er."

"Ahem, Baelle." Both you and the female rabbit turn and see the Innkeepers wife. "I need your elp in the kitchen, come along now."

Baelle looks back at you. "I'm sorry, I ave to go, take care sir." She says and both her and her mother leave the room.

For some reason the name Gaelle sound familiar...

(Story Archives ---> for those who need to catch up)



I have a feel what this will turn out as in the end.

Anyway, might as well go and take a look at that manor you're supposed to steal stuff from. Come back later to talk to the inn keepers about it or their daughter again.


We do know a certain dagger-owner who is angry with Gaelle, but sill I find it hard to believe he'd do something like that.

This one.



Oh boy

Nice one, scraggy. Totally forgot about the potion recipe.

If we wont be able to get anything out of the inn owners and their daughter, we might as well get some pen, paper, and mention some lizard guy.



*mention some lizard guy to the ghost if she shows up again.


Her cut-off ear switched places. I wonder if this is a continuity error or if it's a plot point (it may be either, actually.)


Lizard Boy (Mezard) gonna pay if it was him that cut up Gaelle.

A coconut to the head won't be enough this time.

The fucker didn't seem much like a murderer, though so we need some outlaw-style investigation first in order to dish out some voodoo-justice.



or just plain MIRROR/flip filter for directoral effects.

As a plot point I was wondering if the vision the rat saw in the bedroom may have been, physically speaking, a mirror image. To turn that into a plot point there would be a mirror in the room with some kind of dark secret behind it...


I am the bump


hey, so after looking at those potion ingredients

does anyone else think that horse that bought the bird from us when we first got to the port is looking a little suspicious?

File: 281RatSoMuchToDo.jpg - (105.97 KB, 504x648) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

>>1761046 (That is just me fucking up)

The first time you talked to the lizard guy he seemed like a chicken, but when he was talking to the ant eater he was more mean and angry... he did have a dagger too, the dagger you now have. You might have to look into this later...

You have a lot to do today, but what to do first?



aren't you probably hungry?

plus, a restaurant or some such would be a good place to ask questions.


See first post.



I would ask to speak to the inn keeper, collaborate with him for justice, even if that is a bit of curb stomping street justice, and I would also mention to the inn keeper that you know some priestess that might be able to put his daughter to rest.

I'm sure we could involve the priestess in so far as to make a zombie out of that motherfucker for what he did.



Not to mention, this means that his desire to kill Miranda is more than just talk.

Saving the life of Miranda and putting this spirit to rest seems more worthy of our time than stealing. We were a thief before, but maybe with this new start we could be more.



If we do that, keep in mind that we have a job given to us by lisha.

We cant waste the entire day on it, but making a good impression on the local thieves guild leader right away is more than useful for a thief.

But if it wont waste the entire day, go for it. Dont forget to pick up your freshly made sneaky cloak too.




try to help out the inn owners and gaelle's ghost via the voodoo chicks, slap that lizard in the face, make sure to have enough time to pick up your cloak that should be done today, scout out the manor and then do the job for lisha.



We don't exactly have to be thieves anymore. Whats wrong with become an honest rat, or perhaps using our talents to become something of a private detective?

The thief guild represents a path to our old identity and life. Other tasks can take us away from that.

Though, if we're still wanting to steal, we could simply return to pay for the things Lisha has for us, and we can tell her that we'll need a few days to prepare for the job.

If it was that urgent, she would probably steal it herself.



True, the thief skills could be used as a detective.

>>1761547 (...)
Your not really on Miranda's good side right now, and the innkeeper and his wife don't seem to like talking about Gaelle.
You don't have enough money to get the stuff from Lisha remember? And the cloak won't be ready till noon.
Lisha is going to get the manifest from the prison ship. So you can find out who you are.

(You guys really need to pay better attention...)



You're the writer and artist, though if a proven murderer wanted me dead, I don't care how pissed off I was at someone, I'd be glad to know. Miranda doesn't know that lizard has very likely killed before.

We could tell Lisha to forget about it, or say we don't want to know, but yeah, I think you have plans for something to happen at the manor, so you want us to go that way and steal.

Lets go get the gold from the tree stump.

File: 283RatSoMuchToDo.jpg - (108.05 KB, 504x504) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

You travel to the tree trunk, uncover the hole you dug and retrieve your gold. You now have 4 Gold 85 Silver and 59 Copper pieces again.


why not see if in return for helping Lisha, she sends a carrier pigeon to Variola and Miranda, with a message about Mezard probably being a killer. also include bit about innkeeper's dead daughter, the night haunting, and her unfortunate demise.



Have him piss on the stump. For the lulz.

File: 284RatSoMuchToDo.jpg - (159.81 KB, 504x504) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

As you walk back to the port you think to yourself.
For helping Lisha, she is getting you the Manifest from the prison ship...

However you don't see a problem in asking her to send a message to Miranda, though she will more then likely want to charge you for it.



Now that you've got your gold, you should either pick up your cloak (if it's ready) and get your supplies from Lisha.

File: 285RatSoMuchToDo.jpg - (89.00 KB, 504x504) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Noon is still an hour or so off, so you decide to visit Lisha first. You make your way to the ally and check to make sure no one is around. You slide the crate aside and climb down into the basement and then pull the crate back into place. Then you trigger the bookcase, since that seems to somehow alert her to someone entering the guild room.


Man, this has happened twice already. I need to stop being slow >:|
When you can, tell Lisha that you're short on the money, and if she knows any way to make some around here. She's probably been stealing money to live off of, but she might have an idea of basic errands to run for a little more cash or something.
That or try and barter. Maybe you could trade something you already have..? Though it's probably not much. (I forget what there is.)

File: 286RatSoMuchToDo.jpg - (107.76 KB, 504x432) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Its not long before Lisha walks down the stairs and motions for you to go into the guild room. She follows you inside. It looks like she cleaned up the room since last night.

"Lisha, would it be possible for you to send a message to someone for me?" You ask.

"Depends on too who." She says, tilting her head.

"Someone named Miranda" You say. "She should be at a little hut in the jungle."

"That voodoo cat?" She thinks for a moment. "I guess, she isn't likely to kill the messenger bird is she?"

You just shrug. "I'm really not sure honestly."

"I suppose I can, for 5 silver." She says.

You frown and do a bit of acting. "Actually, I barely have enough to pay for the things I picked out last night. You don't know of any jobs or errands I can run to pick up a few extra coins do you?"

Lisha frowns at you. "Your a thief, go steal something."




Buy the stuff from her.

And maybe you could go steal from that lizard guy sometime later.



Pay her for the items and to deliver the message, we know that if we look out for our friends (the voodoo girls) that they'll look out for us.

We could get poisoned or seriously fucking hurt, at least we'd have 2 people who could help.

I would write a letter for the vixen and Miranda separately, and to Miranda I'd write that circumstances couldn't be helped last time, but you meant everything you said.

( Keep it vague, on that count, Lisha doesn't need to know who we sleep with. She'll probably read the letter herself anyway. )



( Meaning, all the compliments we fed her the last time we had been intimate. Having her "mom" fuck her "suitor" was probably a big blow to her self image. )

enjoy yourself



Even if we'd aim at staying away from the entire thief stuff for the rest of our life, right now, we might still have to make use of it.
We dont have the means to pull off the private detective thing properly as of now, maybe later.

Writing a letter to use with lishas messenger bird might be..dont know. Unless you can tie it to the birds feet yourself with it flying off right after, I wouldnt do it.

Lisha doesnt need to know about our backstory in the jungle. We don't know anything about her either, and babbling about close relationships with voodoo cunts could easily make some people rather stay away from you. And lisha is useful.

Don't know. One hour left till the cloak and stuff is done.
Go to the inn, derp around a bit for more thieves guild signs for an hour, then go pick up the cloak.

Might have to travel to the voodoo chicks yourself. If they decide to do something to the lizard out of self defense, you can loot all of his stuff right away, while also helping gaelle's ghost to talk again.

That'd set you back with lisha, but you might as well find something useful in the lizards hut...if not, steal stuff, either after you got back from the voodoo cunts or before. You need money too.



And yes, lisha is probably going to read our letter if we'd have to give it to her first, instead of putting it directly on the bird.

You tell Lisha to forget about the message for now and you'll just pick up the thieves tools. She nods and unlocks the door to the caged room and gets the items you picked out.

"2 gold, 49 silver and 59 copper." She says.

You hand her the money and she gives you the lock pick set, glass cutter set, grappling hook and smoke bomb.

Your down to 2 gold 36 silver and 25 copper pieces.

(Here is your inventory)

File: 288RatSoMuchToDo.jpg - (145.68 KB, 700x700) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

"Are you sure you don't want me to send that message?" Asks Lisha.


The gigs up! Leg it!



Send the bloody message, for fuck sake. Priestess are useful to keep on good terms with because they can cure a good range of health issues.

As I've stated before, doesn't matter how mad Miranda might be. The vixen needs to know how dangerous this lizard is, it is pretty much a good bet that with his previous talk about harming Miranda that he was definitely the one to have killed the Doe. Miranda can pout all she wants, at least the Vixen can be on guard.

In the letter, I'd specifically ask about how they would communicate with spirits of those who died unnaturally at the hands of another, especially if they're unable to speak from their form of death.

Even if they don't show up, their advice could be helpful.



Or I expect a plot twist, the return letter from the vixen will state that Miranda never arrived. DUN DUNNNN DUNNNNNN.



Rather try to get one of them to visit the room. Have her sneak in at night or something.

Even if they'd give you instructions, you still have no fucking experience in how to deal with any sort of ghost.



They might not be willing to. Asking for instructions at least will prompt a reply.

If I had to stake a guess, we should show that dagger to the ghost and see how she reacts while we keep salt with us... if the ghost gets mad we can throw salt at the ghost (at least in wiccan magic) to repel it.

We've dealt with freaking zombies which are much more capable of harming us. Ghosts are by far a smaller concern.

Besides, the voodoo vixen owes us, she promised to help us with our past and she never came through on that.



She didnt help with our past because we didnt complete some task the way she wanted us to.

And we have no idea what sort of magic we have to deal with here. Actually no, its voodoo. But we know fuckshit bout voodoo.

Plus, like said in >>1762905 , if we go to visit them ourselves and they end up killing the lizard out of self defense, we can loot his shit, maybe obtain some money, and sell the other stuff. We might even get to keep the dagger who killed gaelle..if her ghost would be alright with it.


Man, I have been playing too much minecraft. I went to scroll over the items in the inventory expecting a name to pop up next to the arrow.

She's asking about the message... maybe you should? And to be on the safe side, since she might read it before giving it to Miranda, maybe you shouldn't write too much details! WAIT IS THAT SOME PARANOIA?

You decide to write a letter to Variola. Lisha hands you a piece of parchment, a quill and bottle of ink. You carefully set it all down on the table and set to writing the letter.

Your handwriting is awful and when you reach the end your not sure how to sign it, still not knowing your name... so you go with the nick name the vixen kept calling you.

"Little thief?" Lisha says. Seems she was looking over your shoulder while you wrote. "Cute little nick name for a cute little ratty." She says with a chuckle. "And a ghost? I guess asking a voodoo priestess about it would be a smart thing to do. I do wounder how you got acquainted with her though, but its none of my business is it. Anyhow, lets have the letter then and I'll send it on its way."



If you're delivering it instead of using a bird, maybe you can talk with her about it over tea. Something gives me this feeling that you'd get along with her.

( thats what I'd say )

"I'm sending this with a messenger bird, no way do I want to get mixed up with any voodoo." Lisha says



Ask her if she'd like a meal at the tavern, our treat.



Yeah that is probably smart, you're a pretty lady but zombification can really ruin that!


If you use your own fucking bird, the two voodoo chicks might as well be able to trace back who sent it.

Dunno, they might as well be able to communicate with ordinary birds or look into their minds.

For lisha, it'd be safer to let the rat deliver it by himself.

Your sure nothing is going to happen to Lisha for sending a letter with a bird.

And why would I write the letter if I was going to deliverer it myself? I mean really. I can picture it now, "Here is a letter for you, its from me." I would say. Then I would stand there while she read it, and when she was going to answer me I would say "No, you have to write me a letter back." Yeah, that would make me look really smart.



Uh, it's a damn bird. I'm sure the cost of the service includes covering bird death.



I stupided there. Of course there's no need for a letter if you'd go there yourself.

So yeah, let the bird deliver it.



We're wasting time, send the letter, ask Lisha if she can give you any pointers for your job in the most flattering way possible, then we should go check on the status of our cloak.

>>most flattering way possible,

Like after dinner.

You ask Lisha if she would like to get something to eat with you for lunch, so you can go over any information about the manor she might have.

Lisha smirks. "I haven't been asked out in a long time, but I still have to decline, I think it would be best if we're not seen together in public. But we can go over the floor plan for the manor if you like, I've been to it for a gala so I know the layout. And I'll tell you what, you get me that statue and I will treat you to a private meal."

You nod.

"Let me send this off, I'll be back in a moment." Lisha says, exiting the room.

She returns maybe 15 minutes later. Then she places another piece of paper down on the table and starts to draw out the manor.

"I seem to have been mistaken about the number of guards, only 16 are now in his employ, 8 on duty at a time. 2 at the front gate and 2 at the back gate. 2 patrol the outside walkway along the 2nd floor and 2 patrol the manor itself but mostly stay in the entrance hall." Lisha marks the guards with X.

"The back faces the north and on the grounds are the servants quarters, a hedge maze and garden. Both the household help and guards live in the servant's quarters. To the west is the kitchen and Dining room. Someone is almost always in the kitchen but the dining room is only used for meals, and not even every meal. To the east is a Conservatory, facing the ocean. Then a Bath, sitting room, reading room, study and trophy room. The trophy room is where the statue is by the way. Now I'm not sure that this room is between the trophy room and the bath." Lisha marks each room down and then starts to mark out the first floor.

"The ballroom takes out both the ground and first floor space, as does the dining room. A large staircase leads to the first floor. To the west is the Master Bedroom, a bath, and family member bedrooms. Last are 2 guest rooms located above the entrance hall that look to the south. Oh, also there are 3 entrances to the walkway on the first floor." Lisha looks up at you. "That's about it."


>>1764750 need a distraction for the guards, change in shift wouldn't go well. see if there's a building next to the manor that we can use to get over the fence. or we could use grappling hook and rope.

once inside the gates, head towards the servant's quarters. if we get a manservant's uniform, fewer questions might be asked. go in through the kitchen to avoid the guards at the front door if possible.
or once again, we can use the grappling hook and rope to get up to the second floor over the kitchen area if late after hours, but not if dining. we could also scale the back near where the stairs are. use the mirror to look around corners? grab trophy, gtfo out of there. i don't like the ? marked room.

You could scale the walls, then scale to the first floor grab the goodies and go back the way you came.



File: rat-plan.png - (250.08 KB, 1360x700) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

no door their.


I'd try to follow one of the guards home when the shift changes. See if you can't swipe his keys and his uniform once he is asleep since he's a dayshift guard.

That night use the disguise to slip inside the manor. If the guards want to know why you're heading inside, tell them you're one of the ones on patrol and you need to piss.



ALSO! You could still steal the uniform and get inside by scaling the wall. With a guard uniform on, most servants wont bug you.



I would rather climb near the servants house.. steal some clothes of them.. get inside from one of the normal doors with the clothes you have.. Ie, act like a goodamn servant..
once you steal everything, you climb back, throw the clothes.. ??? profit!



I'm with you. It would probably be better NOT to grab a guard uniform as they apparently have set patrols and stations that likely do not include some of the more private areas of the premises. A maid or butler disguise would probably have better luck explaining away any snooping you do.

Some more food for thought: this is a small rat, how able is he to scale the outer wall let alone the building itself? It might be easiest to just pay someone a pittance to distract the guards at the rear entrance near the servant's quarters while you walk right on through.

"I wouldn't dress up as a guard or a servants, both the guards and servants know each other. Even acting as a new employee will cause them see if you are who you say you are."

You have a grappling hook, climbing the wall will not be hard. Rats are better climbers then you think.

"Yes, that would work if you do it right. Distract the guards so you can get in or out without being seen." Lisha Nods.

Your after a statue not a trophy. it isn't in the ball room, its in the trophy room.


what is this from, that looked pretty cool.

Lisha nods. "It does leave you places to hide if your seen, and if you go very late at night the kitchen should be empty." She tilts her head "But that way will risk the back gate guards seeing you, and you risk the servants seeing you also."

"This way is a straight and to the point." Lisha rubs her chin. "Has less risk of the guards or servants seeing you, but no door, you'll have to go in a window. Also the bed rooms are overhead, so you'll need to be extra quiet."

"In any case, you should be going, I want to write and send that letter about getting the ships manifest from my contact." Lisha walks with you to the window entrance. "Also I have my own things to do, can't stand around chatting. Also be careful at the manor, I don't want to be writing this letter for no reason."



Already stole a knife from the lizard.



Why not a combination of the two? Entrance through the kitchen and crossing through the ballroom, with an exit through the conservatory. It would make for an easy entry and a quick escape if detected, provided the window has a soft landing underneath. Are there trimmed hedges that the rat could aim for, if jumping out the window is necessary?

Just out of curiousity

Why the fuck do you faggots not take this to tgchan? Think you're too good to post your quest on an actual quest board? Eh? Seriously, I want to know.



it's stupid to use a knife that might have been used on someone you cared (Ie, against miranda? ) and already used on someone (the poor bunny girl of the inn)

After leaving the thieves guild you go to check on your cloak and the pouches for your belt. The lady shrew greats you when you enter her shop.

"Ello sir rat. Your order is all ready, er, try it on." She says, bringing the cloak and pouches over to you. "I ope it turned out as you wanted."

You throw on the cloak and attach the pouches to your belt.

"Is it to your linking?" She asks

Turn it out and back a few times, check the stitching. I doubt there's anything wrong with it so just pay her and give her a thanks. She seems a pleasant sort.

Mr. Rat has now become Mr. Badass Rat.

Just look the stuff over and make sure it is correct. Check hidden pockets, etc...

Then if it is satisfactorily. Say it is well made and that it is how you wanted it. Be a very nice rat and give compliments.

You check everything over one more time, its very well made, you guess so anyway. You thank the lady shrew for doing such a great job and so quickly too. She thanks you and tell you to have a wonderful day as you walk out.


Your right, and you have some time to kill, why not pop in and see the blacksmith.

You walk down to the smiths shop and open the door. Everything is very clean and polished.

"Heeeelloooohoooh! Welcome to my little store! How can I help you today?" Says a very effeminate cat with his hands in the air.

No wonder people think his goods are a bit off... some might even say, a little queer. Ho ho ho!

See if you can get him to make a blackjack. They're typically chainmail wedges filled with heavy beads or ball bearings, attached to a handle.

The flexible nature of it is quite like socking someone with a sack of oranges... it'll not make a lot of noise and they're highly effective at knocking someone out. They do not "bounce" or "rebound" off helmets, the victim takes full hydrologic force.

Explain our needs, the blackjack sounds like a useful knockout idea, we've no more coconuts at our disposal anymore after all. That tail shank we want won't build itself.

Oh and if you're feeling dangerous, flirt with him too, maybe he'll even offer us a discount on his already slightly discountable goods.



:3 not sure if the rat is bi, but it would throw everyone for a loop. maybe later though.

Blackjack is nice n all but I was thinking he could also use a simple ranged weapon like a pistol crossbow or something to help take out people from afar,this could help with the distraction too so that your not right in front of it ie shooting a lantern and starting a small fire. or taking someone out before they alert others of your presence.

You ask the cat if he has a blackjack or could make one.

"Mmm... Let me seeeeee." He says, going over to a book and flipping the pages. "Blackjack, blackjack, ah, looks like a leather billy-club. I could give it a try, might take a few days."

You ask if he could make a blade that could bit over your tail tip.

The cat grabs you by the tail suddenly and looks it over. "Mmmhum, Yes, I guess I could do that, I would need to strap it on with leather straps." He thinks to himself, absently stroking your tail, leaving you feel dirty and uncomfortable. "It would take a few days too. Anywho, whats your decision?"



A few days? I need functional, not something pretty.

(I'm assuming that is why it'd take so long, the smith seems decorator-type-gay which would mean he'd waste hours over picking the thread to be used in the leather straps.)



Sexy kitteh!

Don't know if rat is bi though. Is rat bi? If so, do a little flirting. You never know where it may lead.


I like this idea.



This scene somewhat fits, replace pottery by blacksmithing:

i'm not joking.


Wether or not the rat is bi, doing some slight flirting might make him finish the blackjack earlier. Same for the tail shank. You need that stuff as soon as possible after all.

Also uuh...ask what other stuff he got. Just in case he'd have something in stock that'd be just as useful as a blackjack.

As for a weapon. I think the tail weapon sounds good. How much would it be?

Just realized who the blacksmith reminds me of


The whole point of a sap is that it's easy to make. You just wrap a stick of heavy metal in leather. Or fill a little bag with sand or lead shot (if shot exists). Petty criminals don't have resources, so they just make shit up like we're doing with this tail thing.

Also, has anyone noticed that everyone in this story has tiny muscles? I'm not saying that this should turn into some Fist of the North Star thing, but even the blacksmith has the arms of a fifteen year old girl.

You pull away your tail and tell him you need something sooner, not a few days.

"I'm sorry, but If I make it, it has to be fabulous. No if ands or buts about it." The cat says.

No... Just no.

You ask him if he has any weapons in stock and he shakes his head no.

"I make stuff by order." He says.

You wounder if the store next to the smith might carry something you could use instead of bothering with this place.

The blacksmith probably thinks he is a 15 year old girl...



Guess rat isnt bi. Oh well. :/

Guess you should go next door then.

Also, its spelled "wonder".





Ugh, I knew that was why. Mincing prick wants people to think the mace they're being hit with is pretty.

He seems to find us attractive, we could say "What if we help you make it, that would speed it up."

Maybe he is lonely enough that the idea of company would motivate him. The downside is putting up with him hitting on us all afternoon.



First time posting any of these threads, but I'd stick with the blacksmith. I'd rather have the quality that he's putting out by hand making each of these to suit the customer than just buying some generic weaponry.


Should we order something from the blacksmith just in case?

Is there anything we can think of that we don't need immediately that we might need to the future?

File: 3hjru3ihnr5n.jpg - (32.51 KB, 400x395) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Ask if you could use some of his equipment to forge your own weapons at the cost of using the material he has available in his shop. Sap is simple enough to make and it wouldn't be too hard to make a tail dagger thing that has been obsessed about for a few threads now. Also see if he has some crossbow schematics you can use cause I know your avoiding that idea..

File: 695883-shiv_super.jpg - (5.13 KB, 349x121) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Order the tailblade from the blacksmith, look for blackjack in the other store.

The tailblade will be a last resort kind of weapon and something we will wear all the time so I'd rather have something made by an expert thats comfortable, fits perfectly and is of good quality instead of strapping a shiv to our tail with a bit of string.



I wonder if he will go for that.

Scraggy - I know this is a stupid question, but can we tell if Mr. Kitty Blacksmith is gay, or just kinda...strange? Like a little nuts?

I kinda agree with this.


I wanna see some art on the Gay Cat.




Rat would be annoyed for a day, but we'd get the weapon a LOT faster.

Yeah, ask if we can help him out in making our stuff. Since we need it quickly.

File: 300RatSoMuchToDo.jpg - (176.55 KB, 792x504) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.


You thank the cat for his time and leave the store.

You go next door and enter.

"ello sir, its good to see you again. ow can I help you?"

You ask the owner if he happens to have a blackjack.

"I do, though I been using it to swat bug." he says.

You ask him how much and he says 6 silver coins.



That is really gross and a health hazard, 5 silver since it is both used and the display model?



Take the blackjack for the 6 silver coins.

Also, what about the tail shank? After you got the blackjack, go back to the blacksmith and...debate over one again.

Even if it'd be a "last resort" weapon, think of the surprise effect. Nobody would expect a rat to whip a blade in their face from their behind from under a cloak.

TL;DR Buy blackjack, go to fag blacksmith, debate over price and time for a tail shank.




Wash it at the sea, its a port town, and bug juices are gone.



Wait, wait, what about >>1765932 's idea? That's a really good idea. Just order the tailblade 9000 and leave, no need to let things get weird.

Also, purchase the lead filled bag of concussive sleep.

You ask if 5 silver would be okay, since its been used.

The shopkeeper agrees and you pay the 5 silver and now own a blackjack.


You leave the shop and wash the blackjack off outside in a rain barrel. Its good as new and you put it in your bag.

You really don't want to go back into the blacksmiths...

I think this is Scraggy saying not to get the tail shank right now.

What time is it now?



Damn it, I wanna see that sexy cat again. :(

This shit needs some rule 34 right now.


Maybe Lisha has contacts to some underground weapons manufacturers who could make us a tail blade fast.
We should ask her sometime.



Of course you don't want to, but it's the only way to get an out-of-the-ordinary weapon that might safe your life sooner or later.

And the earlier you talk to the blacksmith about it, the earlier you'll get your tailshank.

And if he decides to put feathers, shiney stones and stuff on it while painting it pink, you can take that stuff off after you got it.



Our tail is always visible unless we have a cloak on, and a cloak would hamper the use of the weapon. Not to mention we're liable to hurt ourselves with it.

Lets just forget the tail shank.




We have the cloak, so the tail is hidden.
The cloak might hinder its use, then again, It's a matter of getting used to it. Once used to it, it would be a delicious last resort or overall out-of-the-blue thing.

Plus, the rat would be 5 times as badass. You cant deny that.

>>1766088 and >>1766095 both have valid points, but the alcohol I've been imbibing tells me we should chance Barbie the Blacksmith and get the rat-o-stabber ordered.



We'd only hurt ourselves with it if we decide to go full retard, really.


I think, as a compromise, the tailknife should be shelved until we can find a blacksmith that's competent.



Good point...but the only other place we know of is the village, and those are just a bunch of...jungle guys ( as in, country guys, compared to the port town).

Actually, ask if the faggot blacksmith has anything he made previously, even if it was for himself or out of fun. So we can judge if its worth the fucking wait.



Forgot to add: So yeah, i doubt the village has a blacksmith. Or one capable of more complicated things.


While this may be our only chance to have a tail dagger, all of the signs are pointing to this being a disaster waiting to happen.


>>1766142 might as well just be a pink tail shank with purple feathers and glitter all over..

you could take that stuff off of it, though...if it'd just be that.

File: 302RatSoMuchToDo.jpg - (121.16 KB, 504x648) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.


Yeah, a blade tied to your tail would just cause trouble. You would have to keep your tail under your cloak, and you need your tail to help with balance and such, also you risk cutting your nice new cloak up. And while the tail blade would be cool, its something more for an assassin, not a thief.

Its about 3 in the afternoon now, might be a good time to scout out the manor.

You head up a hill at the north end of the port town, and the manor comes into view. You can see two guards standing at the Iron front gate. A tall stone wall surrounds the manor.


I'm not sure this is smart, but the better we know the place, the better we'll do. We could ask the guards how a painter/gardener would apply to work for the estate.

If we even get five minutes with the lord, we'll have seen some of the rooms and grounds on the way to his office.



It wouldn't if we simply had a sheath fashioned but whatever.

We're apparently uncomfortable with the blacksmith... whatever.

You walk up to the 2 guards at the front gate. They both seem board but straighten up when you approach.

"What business do you ave rat?" Growls one of the guards.

"I was just curious if there are any job openi-" You start to ask but the other guard cuts you off.

"Get out of er, ya little vermin." He say with a nod of his head back the way you came. "The gov'ner as enough staff, e aint iring any one else."



Use your closeness as an opportunity to look at how they're armed/armored, and perhaps if they have keys hanging off them.

Walk away, we'll approach from the side left of the front gate. They'll investigate/suspect us if we just walk down the wall and duck the corner.
