You were too young to remember the birthing pains of the world. Yet old enough to know the people who were there to witness it personally. How chaotic and dangerous those times were before things finally began to stabilize. You heard directly from their mouths of the deaths of old worlds. Struggling to survive against the morphing terrains, the last struggling breaths of the dead, the monsters that creeped out, the outsiders that attempted to intervene in their own affairs, and how gods walked among mortals. How new life arose and began to spread out. You would know you are one of those new lives. So new in fact your kind has no name and you took to a nameless tribe as you were found in the wilds. A newborn was found by the previous shaman who took you in to raise. You were not by any means the only one found like that and adopted. In fact, most people and tribes don't really have names yet. The trauma of trying to escape with their lives and the newfound ability to finally catch their breath. This means that people are finally considering 'who' they are and what they should become. This is something that the older members don't particularly care for but the younger ones are eager to prove themselves while the entire world finally rests and life begins to thrive.

You would as you are still but a wild child. Flaunting your chores and playing with the others. Yet there is something different about yourself. Not that it means much considering how 'common' that is. The real question is who will survive and who won't as Dad would say. Whose ailing health does not bode well, especially with the newer upstart who took his old position. As his ways are seen as 'unneeded in this new era'. You aren't sure that things are a bit...tranquil and your blood whispers to you about the storm.

That is why you-

Quick reminders to keep in mind for the quest. This is a DYNASTY quest. The Main Character WILL die BUT so long as you have descendants you will control one of them upon death. They are your literal spare lives so act accordingly. Don't be afraid to sacrifice MCs to specific goals or risky adventures so long as you have backups. Also, keep in mind that some descendants are better than others and may develop differently over time. Choosing someone younger to take over gives you more chances to customize them but they won't be as well developed as an older descendent however older descendent picks are much more set in their ways...

The point of the quest is to keep your dynasty alive and thriving. Exactly HOW you go about that is entirely up to anons and it's entirely possible to establish Branch Dynasties that deviate from the traditional approach or even overtake the main family(thereby becoming the new primary dynasty). Its also possible to switch MCs to one of those branches. Keep in mind it is ALSO possible to lose control of those branch dynasties and distant descendants thereby no longer being able to influence or control them.

Yes, it's possible to unleash autism and use eugenics on your own descendants. I would be more surprised if autistic anons didn't do this. Just keep in mind certain bloodlines don't play nice with each other and mixing too much also causes problems(there is a limit to how much a descendent can sustain before problems begin to arise also mixing conflicting bloodlines is very bad mkay). Basically, it can be surprisingly tricky if you want to optimize it. Yes, special bloodlines with their own special abilities/quirks DO exist. So have fun with that on top of magic and trying to optimize the usual physical stuff.

Wow, special limited option it is then.

Whereas most children were running about and playing. You spent your early most years by the side of your adoptive father whom you realized is the only elder remaining in the tribe. The old times were so dangerous and difficult that the rest of them simply didn't make it. From him, you learned of many things that now lay forgotten and destroyed. You learned of the old worlds with dying and full of glorious but dead 'civilizations'. From him, you learned of the chaos and destruction. The misery and despair as the worlds gradually laid to waste and died. From him, you learned from their destruction a new world was created but how devastating a process that was to endure. The precious few ancient things that somehow survived to the very end of their own world's demise...were not able to survive the birthing pains of a new world. Yet as they finally prepared to meet their demise at long last...they saw a flicker of hope they thought long lost.

New life.

A chance...not for themselves but to leave behind a heritage...if only things had been so simple. For there were things from beyond who noticed how fragile and vulnerable this newborn world was. So those long lost ancients and forlong dead arose one last time to match against them in a final battle and epochal eclipsing as their last flickering dying gasps of flames went out at long last. The ancients from those now lost, long dead, and from destroyed worlds were no more. Yet they succeeded. For their final sacrifice, they bought time and protection for the new life to prepare themselves for future struggles. Sadly these future struggles they would have to stand alone.

You listened to him. Even as you saw time finally begin to catch to him. the old wounds from those struggles proving to be too much. As he finally began to waste away. You were there the entire time, however. He told you many many things. Long forgotten secrets. Of glorious civilizations. Ruins of untold proportions. Ancient battlefields spanning the stars themselves. The journies of the newborn life who struggled to survive in the last dying gasps of survivors of dead worlds who spent what was left to give them a fighting chance in the future while things from beyond attempted to invade and take advantage of their newborn frailty, naiveness, and weakness.

Finally, on his dying bed, he told you his greatest secret of all. That he was never born of this world...that his own homeworld has long perished. That he was one of those ancients who survived the death of his world and the birth of this one only to safeguard it from the rest. He also told you the truth of your own origins and warned you of what lays beyond this world. Of the remains birthing process and the fight to protect the newborn world. Finally of the dangers of the things that now recuperate and are stranded here.

His stories were far more grand and incredible than the ones the other adults told. That was about the chaos, struggling to survive, and ever transforming terrain. His...you found hard to believe. Except he told you where you could find proof and places that you must avoid at all costs. Places that you must fight to protect, destroy, and secure for the sake of this very world and all life on it no matter the cost. You were just a kid and didn't realize what it all truly meant and the sheer overwhelming worth of what he shared with you.

Even when he told you the truth of your own origins didn't come nearly as a shock as everything else he shared. You were found in the wild yes but that was because you were made from the flesh of monsters and your soul formed from the spirits themselves. Yet you came out...a manling. Something distinctly new and different but by accident. Whoever heard of monsters or spirits making men...well as it turns out you DO have a sister who was born from spirits so you have heard of that. You have heard of stranger things, to be honest. Like fruit bearing children and babies being cracked open from rocks.

What you didn't expect was his later confession. That you were the result of a favor being repaid 'a life for life' but because you were born a man you were unable to stay and had to be sent away. Hence how you ended up in his care. So you asked does this mean you have other family relatives?

His answer?

'Not those of men'

Apparently, that was why you could see the spirits. You are kin to them. Why during your trips with the old shaman deep in the wilderness where nobody else dared tread but the greatest of monsters...the monsters left you alone. You thought it was because they feared the old man too deeply to target even a helpless child. It turned out you smelled like one of them.

You knew the old man was very close to death. Not being of this world but his life was saved before here and he used to be strong. Meanwhile there are so many other mysteries he told you about that are worth investigating and yet at the current rate your family is danger of being exiled from the tribe thanks to your family's waning influence in the tribe. Life is difficult and while you are kid its not like you are too young as to still be useless.

What do?

Perhaps other more immature children would have tried to find a means to delay the inevitable but you knew this was an extremely long time coming and was the natural end. So you spent what time was left by his side to the very end. He didn't share as much as he before since was at that time very sick, slept a lot, and could speak little. What he told you though was invaluable he told you that resources and even people would be strongest now but over time they would wane. Their potency and richness would dwindle as the world ages and grows ever more exhausted. The same is true for even species and bloodlines. Right now it is its most plentiful and most powerful but sadly nobody knows how to properly utilize it.

He even begins to teach you about magic and the dangers of knowledge. Some knowledge is meant for your mind and can be handled some simply are not. Therefore there are consequences and dangers involved when trying to use it. The same extends to magic and even blood. The things that are the most valuable are those with the highest compatibility. Sure you could learn to say USE undead magic...but high how is your compatibility with it when you are one of the living? What of the consequences of using it? The side effects? While it is indeed a shortcut to borrow the knowledge and spells of others it will cost you dearly in the long run because its potential is limited for you(since it was never even meant for your kind) and the side effects are dire.

Sadly starting from scratch is the safest and best in the long run but the hardest to get started and with the greatest risks early on. Since you have no idea what you are doing. Thus the old man spends his final days carefully guiding you in the ways of magic and the ways to discover even more knowledge. If you were a lonely oddball before by now you are certainly an outcast of the tribe. Yet how many know how to use magic and can even differentiate it?

Pioneering magic. All magic starts off as Wild magic due to be undiscovered and hence unpredictable. Once successfully pioneered the magic path and tradition begins to stabilize learn to Pioneer magics. Pioneer magics once invested in enough will become normal magics that depending on discoveries, advancements, and investments will have their own specialties and perks while being much safer with minimal side effects.

Being so close to someone once so powerful in magic and so close to death. Learning magic for yourself. You can feel your own senses begin to change. No longer are your keen senses so limited. You are more apt to notice magic and more things. You also noticed that while the tribe ignores the old man...there are other 'things' that you previously missed that did not. The spirits you noticed slowly gathered as he drew closer to death. As night fell you could hear things creeping ever closer and lurking that normally went bump in the night. Anyone else would have been alarmed by what approached yet with your new magical senses and from the stories he told you realized what they were.

One night you chose to stay up late in order to see these 'guests' with your very own eyes for yourself. Others would have balked at the idea but you knew that they meant no harm. So late that night you sneaked over and peeked inside to see what was coming to visit him nightly. What you saw shocked you to the core. Inside that cramped room, the room was stuffed 'full' of undead and monsters. Their creaking bones and wispy forms piled on top of each other to give room. To a few scarred monsters who reeked of carnage and quiet contemplation along with...odd reminiscence and regret.

You realized what they were all from his stories. The Living Dead. The Awari awoke to fight endlessly against the tides of invasion. Many more...all quietly stood in a silent vigil around him. Giving space to the old man and a single special guest who quietly took care of him. A strange willowy monstrosity yet eerily beautiful that for some reason smelled oddly familiar to you and whose voice was like a bizarre melody.

"Hah...to break...our agreement like this...you got guts," he gasps.

"No...you just got too old and weak to stop me," sighs the monster after cleaning him up. "tell me you are powerful enough to know when the reaper will arrive so don't tell me I'm too soon?"

"Rubbing it all in...all of you...fucking...bastards...not even one last fight or to put me out of my misery," he grumbles. "The reaper...you don't have to worry. You have arrived right in time...but I must beseech you about our son."

"Ooho that was supposed to be the responsibility of you and yours, not mine. For what reason could you possibly request this for?" the monster inquires pausing.

"For old times sake and because...I'm afraid he will have no one else to rely upon," the old man admits.

"Old times? That's rich considering how many times we tried to kill each other," snorts the monster but pauses to consider the last word. "...Is he in danger?"

"He knows about forgotten secrets and other realms. Tapping into newborn magic and growing too familiar with death too young. What do you think hag?"

"...You know I am also not long for this world," admits the monster.

"Longer than me and long enough to see him grown."
>>
>>5237566
"Somehow despite being so weak and both feet in the grave you are still such a pain in my ass," grumbles the monster. "Fine. Strange to see you get so soft in your old age."

"Hmph, the same could be said about you too. We both grew old and soft tired from all the struggles and fighting...soon it will be time to rest and leave the rest up to the brats."

"You got that right...I'm getting way too old for this shit anymore," agrees the monster as you sneak away back to bed.

The next night you notice the guests are back but they also change...all except for one who comes back every night to keep the old man company and tends to his needs personally. You listen in on them too. As they speak of the old days and you realize that the two of them were once sworn enemies ages ago but now...things have changed. You also hear of the other guests but what little you know of those extinct tongues makes it hard to pick up on but you do gradually learn more overtime during the night and more lessons during the day. The old man sleeping more and more makes it easy for you to nap yourself.

Finally one day things change. The spirits who are gathered around him during the day and the ghosts at night had mysteriously opened up a clear passageway. When you tried to peer in he warned you not to look. Saying that his time was soon and it was best for someone so young to gaze into the face of death itself. A few nights later he insisted that stayed with him for the night and on that night for the last time the two of you talk animatedly for the last time. He was in such good shape he even helped you make something. A bizarre looking totem crafted from wood, bone, scale, feathers, and carapace.

When out of nowhere he suddenly chose to go on a walk with you late at night. You agreed since you knew his special guests were no doubt keeping an eye on things and despite it being so late things would be fine. Except for this time for some reason...you couldn't identify the path you took. There were ghosts and spirits that abound. The trees and plants gradually faded away into dying plants and barren earth. Finally, you could see the scattered bones and remains of many dead. Yet the old man kept on walking and talking just like years ago when he was still hale and hearty.

He kept on walking even past many dead who were awake and either ignored your passage...or even saluted or bowed to the old man. Eventually, your walk ended before a broken canyon and a river you have never seen before past countless shattered ruins whose age who had no idea. On the river was a ferry and a boat with a shrouded figure quietly waiting for him. The old man finally paused here right before the shattered doorway that led to the doorway and turned back to give you a hug before speaking some final words.
>>
>>5237588
"As a mortal who still draws breath...there are many affairs of the dead you should be wary to know...but as a new world the underworld is a new concept...this place isn't your underworld. It's mine from my old extinct world. Even worlds die. Immortals cannot avoid the reaper forever. Not even the underworlds can stay. For someone so young and from a newborn world to know so much about the end...even I don't know what consequences this will have on you and your progeny. Goodbye son."

With that, the old man steps through the door and appears on the last boat which proceeds to head down the river to go through the closing door. You find yourself being grabbed by some undead who begin to carry you away in a rush. You could see why when you notice the entire underworld previously so desolate and dead...begins to rapidly crumble and fall apart. Rapidly breaking down as you hear an ancient sigh of the last will waiting for countless eons for this very moment...to finally be put out of its long awaited misery.

So this finally cycle ends

You could see the passageway that was miraculously intact ahead but...you couldn't help but look back. to see the shrouded figure quietly help the old man through the last doorway from the boat as the last bits of the underworld shatters but not before the shrouded figure looks directly at you and tosses you something before closing the door behind them. Meanwhile, the undead even as they also crumble and disappear push you through the doorway and into the strange passageway. You watch helplessly as the underworld disappears before your very eyes as you are caught by something and realize that you are holding something.

"Well, who do we have here...an unexpected living guest who has seen the death of an underworld? Now THAT is most unexpected," suddenly cackles a voice behind you as you are too busy weeping to notice you were not alone. "Not every day we get living guests and rarer still to see an underworld perish but one who witnesses both at the same time? I could very well be the first."

Looking behind you see a shrouded figure standing over you that seems to be still cackling with its disturbing raspy voice. "Ooh...one who even understands the Dead Tongues. Well aren't you an interesting find...and what is that you are holding...oh my well isn't that a unique treasure. If you wish to return to the living just go on through that passage and you will return to whence you came. I cannot promise you still live if you go any deeper even with that treasure. Not while you are still so weak."

"...You are the one who guided us here."

"Oof. Busted. Hah...strange you shouldn't have been able to see me back then. Well then again I have no idea what going through that will do to you so who knows now," shrugs the reaper.

"Why take me along?"

"...my duty is merely to ensure the dead enter the underworld not my fault said deadman insisted on going through a very special passageway. Besides it was a special request and I had no other jobs lined up. Hopefully we won't see each other again too soon eh kid?" With that the reaper walks deeper down the passageway. While you head the other way and soon exit it to find yourself someplace you have never seen before but barely recall heading through.

Yet here you also found someone waiting for you. The exact same monster that would show up every night. In the distance you could see roaming undead no doubt the 'guards' to the passage to the underworld. While around you seems to be some kind of shrouded canyon.

"Come on let's take you home," calls forth the monster.

"...Are you really my mother?"

"My scent should tell you the answer."

"..."

"No other questions?"

"Would you answer them?"

"Maybe."

"...Considering you abandoned me I have my doubts."

"...It was better for you to be in the world of men than the world of monsters. I didn't expect you to make such...peculiar choices at such a young age."

"Stuff relating to death, forgotten secrets, other realms, and ancient knowledge?"

"..."

"Just take me home."

Upon your return you find out the old man's body had 'mysteriously' disappeared. When he had been found dead in the evening days ago...oddly enough that evening you worth him and chatting deep into the night. Turned out he past away before your very eyes and you didn't even realize it at the same since he was so animated. Your family was concerned that you had 'also' disappeared and then his body vanished. Rumors abound about you being involved in necromancy or other dark arts. Considering how you appeared safe and sound a week later without a scratch. You just ignored them as usual.

Now without the old man around...you aren't entirely sure what to do with yourself.

Great start QM loving the quest so far. What age is or character now? Teenage years?
>>
>>5237642
Still a kid. You do not yet know how you age exactly when compared to others. You are no longer a little kid and can do chores. There are a few more time skips before you become a teenager but not many.

I wasn't expecting anons to go all-in for the antiquated knowledge or delve into death. That is quite the surprise, especially considering how dangerous magic is early on and the world is so young necromancy hasn't had a chance to snowball. On the plus side absolutely 0 side effects for necromancers. Not to mention the lack of development to take advantage of all that knowledge but now you get a headstart to certain developments and know about a TON of secrets.

Currently, the MC is an awkward nerd who can and will blast someone with magic and knows lots of(obscure) things. He severely lacking in everything else but you are still a kid and can easily fix that. VERY unusual for an early stone age tribe. Anyone who thinks the MC is weak is going to be in for a very nasty surprise. He is lacking in common knowledge though and a lot of his knowledge is too obscure or advanced to be easily utilized.

>>5237657
Sounds like we stumbled into a nascent dark sorcerous overlord build. That is, if we think of death as a great enemy or dark shadow, rather than merely a quiet companion awaiting us at the end of this journey called life or merely a great mystery. Could very well make necromancy, which is still young, into a more respectable and gentle art than "Good luck I am behind nine thousand power liches"

Very interested to see where our boy goes from here. Good prose and flow so far.

Let's make a plan. Step 1 Become friends with actual death and maybe learn some more secrets from It. Step 2 creates a philosophy that accepts and is positive about death being a friend. Step 3 worship nothing. Step 4 write everything down. Step 4 spend our life building a family that will last till the death of the universe itself. Step 5 creates magic greater than necromancy where death is as simple to understand and manipulate as turning over a hand (alla that one slan from Warhammer Old where all we have to do is decide we are no longer dead and we stop being dead). Step 6 die content and be surrounded by our friends while passing on our greatest secrets to the family we love best.

Our old man warned us against necromancy, though. I say we develop our wild magic to be tailored to our dynasty instead. Necromancy will eventually bite us in the ass
>>
>>5237695

Necromancy is for amatuars. I'm talking about the gold standard of Reincarnation, Avatars, and the ability to manifest through the souls and bloodline of our offspring. I'm not talking about fearing/cheating/worshiping death. I'm talking about becoming drinking/fuck buddies with whatever form OG death likes to incarnate as.
>>
>>5237661
Not much of a spoiler for necromancy cause it's obvious but necromancy grows more powerful the older the world is because its power is based on the amount of the dead. Young worlds have far less dead than old worlds ergo far weaker. Necromancy is something that snowballs big time the more dead there are. Hence never fight a necromancer in a graveyard that is just begging to get raped.

If you wanna go full Overlord then check out the monsters then the fun will really begin. If you wanna have fun with necromancy visit a different realm and experience its true power. Necromancy right now is nerfed cause not enough dead but that makes it the safest time to study and master. That or find someone stupid enough to fight you in a graveyard or a battlefield in which case they deserve what's coming. Like fighting a water mage in an ocean.

>>5237695
He warned you against Undead Magic. Undead magic is not the same as necromancy but they are related. Undead magic is tainted by undeath. His wariness of necromancy stems from the fact that he came from a dying world where all the necromancers were OP as hell because of it.

Wild magic is the Origin of ALL magic. All magic starts off as a Wild Magic before it gets 'tamed'(studied and specialized).

Necromancy side effects will take ages(literally) to kick in and start off tiny. It only grows stronger the closer the world is to dying. Basically, it's going to be a while before it becomes a legit concern for your dynasty.

Everyone in your family assumed you shut down because of your father growing ill and dying. Hence retreating into a shell and becoming an oddball. So it was quite a surprise and huge relief to them to see you finally come out of your shell. The fact that you actually knew magic made you an only a bare handful of people in the entire village and the fact that you were a child made you hands down the youngest and a genius. Plus if anyone had any funny ideas you knew some VERY frightening spells. The only problem is the shaman definitely doesn't like you. He was relieved that the old man finally bit the dust only for it to turn that he raised an apprentice at the very last second. Never mind the fact that the old man's magic is not the same as yours.

You know the reason why for that but you doubt any of them would believe you. The only magic you have in common with him is Spirit Magic and he only really taught you the basics...sort of. A lot of it you had to figure out yourself due to differing 'magical laws' from his world. Which was worthless in this new one as a native rather than an outsider. Still, it was good enough to help out at home but times you noticed in the family were...very lean.

Simply put you realized you were fucking broke as shit. A big adopted family. No income. A bunch of little mouths to feed. Previously the tribe shelled out because an old man knew magic but he got replaced and died. No one was really willing to help out except a couple of family friends. Even with your magic...you realized it wasn't nearly enough.

Wild magic was too...unpredictable. Necromancy was...well you were trying to help the living not kill them or help the dead instead. Spirits and monster magics you weren't very good at. All your knowledge as rare and obscure as it is does not put food in your belly and prevent you from freezing to death. For the first time much to your misery...you realize your knowledge doesn't help you survive.

Sure if you were trapped in some gods forsaken ruin yeah maybe but alas. You needed food. You needed shelter. Warmth. Water. Company. Ect. All basics to survival and...none of what you had was nearly enough. You used to be so proud of your knowledge but any other kid was more helpful to you. They at least we're much better at foraging and chores.

So your foolish pride, hubris, and ignorance built up over the years were completely crushed in a matter of months when you realized just how useless you are and dependent on your already struggling family who humored your childishness all this time. Probably to give the old man some company most likely whereas other kids were forced to do chores...
>>
>>5237708
Your family is in a very difficult position. There was nobody grown who could take charge. The closest to adulthood were your two elder sisters and an older brother. There is no way to pay for a dowry and unless you wish to sell yourselves into slavery to feed yourselves...none of you may be related by blood but none of you are that uncaring for each other. The old man raised you better than that. So your biggest brother was thinking of rushing his adulthood hunt to prove himself but not only is it dangerous he would need to choose an easy season and year which would make him look weak and cowardly. Your older sisters could attempt to marry themselves off but you know one of them has a crush on brother and the other...honestly you aren't sure about her tastes besides her having a very good bff who is a frightening girl.

Although you can probably blame the fact that her friend's dad is a berserker and Mom is a cannibal. They have oddly enough despite arguably being the most infamous family in the tribe actually the most helpful and kind to your own. You know your old man knew her Dad from the journies and how he was a VERY mighty warrior even by his standards. Definitely the strongest in the tribe in fact and arguably the entire area if not region. He did not know her mother or where the hell she came from but warned you about her moreso than the father.

You didn't really understand why until your magical abilities grew...and you understood why. Cannibalism is the LEAST of that bitch's concerns. You haven't seen anyone in the entire tribe radiate that kind of bad mojo shamans and even monsters included. If she weren't so nice and unwilling to see your entire family starve to death you feel like you should be more concerned. Instead you desperately hope she doesn't realize that you know.

Funny that people fear her father more than the mother...

Still, at least the daughter is nice and close to your big sis. She also gave advice to your older brother that you overheard on the best season to hunt. She herself chose winter which is the hardest for her solo adulthood and proved herself as the first one since desperate times. to add insult to injury it was a very harsh winter that year and her prize was huge. According to her, an adult hunt one has to hunt 'solo' but that doesn't mean it has to be without 'help' or 'company' that you find in the wild. Only that you cannot have the support of your own kind or that forfeit the right of a Solo Hunt to Hunt with a Pack. That was merely the highest difficulty hunt you could just choose an easier one.

...that made you think. You had magic. You knew you could find 'allies' in the wild and there were no rules that you technically HAD to reach adulthood to go through that hunt. Everyone just assumed you had to be an adult and wanted to be treated like to do it. To 'prove' yourself. The more you think about it...the less improbible it seems.

While you could study magic more and try to learn to concoct medicines to trade or make tools. You are a child and you doubt people will take you seriously. You need to MAKE them take you seriously or simply pack up and leave to go somewhere else. Not to mention the old man warned you about being too wasteful apparently lots of materials that are common now will only become rarer as time goes on and are replaced by other possibly weaker things.

No matter what you do. You need to plan and prepare. As you do not know how long your family can hold on even with what few family friends are willing to help that is left...

Right when I was writing up the monster choice too sudden a turnaround.
----
You choose to spend the next few months doubling down on your magic. Thanks to it being wild magic is a miserable process due to how unpredictable it is. You long lost count of how many times you accidentally exploded, set on fire, frozen, zapped, transformed, or otherwise afflicted by some random chaos with the goal of pioneering magic. Honestly made you appreciate your other magics a LOt more. Sure it's weaker but fuck at least it's nice safe and best of all predictable.

It being predictable was something that about moved you to tears. Wild magic is dangerous, yes but ALL magic is dangerous...at least the others are predictable. You shudder at what the old man mentioned about 'chaos magic'. Something even more of a mess than Wild Magic? The horror. THE HORROR.

You even made some advances on your spirit magic which was the expertise of your father and monster magic. These two you immediately noticed were more powerful and felt stable yet you could already feel the side effects despite such early progress. As you were neither wholly a spirit or monster but other. It was not meant for your kind. Yet it was so easy and powerful...you can understand now why he warned about it being a crutch and easy temptation that will backfire on you in the long run. You felt none of that with wild magic or necromancy as if it was...natural.

Hm. Still the months passed by and you realized that without a teacher your progress was going to be limited in the short term. You will need a new objective as you recall there are two options. Assuming your big sister would stop naked wrestling with her girlfriends in the bath, bed, and 'trips' outside that you learned the hard way was an excuse to just wrestle more when you went out to practice your spells. At least your big brother has an excuse of practicing to be a gigolo or babymaking according to your sister's friend whatever that means. To think her talent for spirit magic would go to waste like that...and chores. She would have been so much more helpful but you had other magics to practice for her...hobbies?

This leaves you with another idea. Your magic is a lot stronger now but it won't be able to get much stronger in the short term only in the long term which is time you do not have. Yet the top predators as anyone knows are the monsters. Who better to learn from to hunt? You just gotta avoid the bad ones and go for the familiar smelling ones that you recognize shouldn't be that hard since you caught their scent over the years. Oh, how wrong you were.

MONTHS. Months of sniffing the ground and getting lost. The monsters you knew withdrew to lick their wounds after the upheaval and recuperate like everyone else but you had no idea how annoying it would be to actually find them.
>>
>>5237754
For top predators, you would think they would be more active or cover a lot more ground than you realized. Maybe they just aren't recovering as quickly. You don't know you just it took you ages to find the bastards and you kept getting lost...then again considering how many times you found out the hard way that you were actually going in circles...you really only have yourself to blame since you never bothered to actually learn any of this stuff before. Even kids younger than you were better at not getting lost, foraging, and even hunting.

Still, it was a good experience at least...well maybe not for the first month or two. The hunger kept you going back. The missed game that you could have blasted with a spell. The missed forage that you stumbled over. All while slowly figuring out where those damned monsters were hiding. Eventually, you realized just 'why' it was so hard to fucking find them. If it was just magic or lack of skills you would understand but you severely underestimated them. There was a reason why all the hunters and everyone else feared monsters so much. Monsters as it turned out were fucking MADE to be the top predator. Their ability to hide. To ambush. To kill. Was all peerless. Everyone and everything to them is forever prey.

The reason why you never found them was obvious. They knew you were searching the entire time and purposefully kept out of the way making sure you didn't run into anything you couldn't handle until finally caught them entirely by accident as it turned out. That day you were exhausted but found traces of a nearby spirit spring. Figuring you could use a break and a bath. Not to mention it would be nice to see what the spirits might know. They were the ones who pointed out how sneaky those damned monsters were and the dead how deadly after all.

You approached and stumbled upon a group of monsters bathing in the spiritual waters of the spring. These monsters you noticed were different. They radiated magic and...you caught the familiar scent but it was weak and it was at that very moment being washed off them. Meaning they had just encountered the monsters you were looking for and considering how the spirits were cool with them you knew they couldn't be 'too hostile'. Turned out they were just like your damned sister and her girlfriends with their love of naked wrestling. Except for this time they wanted you to join in and were oddly disappointed when they discovered that you were too 'young' for some reason despite how 'cute' you were resulting in them pouting in frustration.

Apparently, naked wrestling was also a popular pastime that crossed racial boundaries who knew?
>>
>>5237759
So you got to chatting after bathing together and they found out your story. Not only did they have an idea of who 'might' be the monsters you were searching for they were even deeply touched about you wishing to hunt for your family despite your youth and weakness. Even offered to join you in your hunt and search for the monsters in exchange for some future favors that included for some reason a very strong insistence on 'naked wrestling' when you were 'old enough' to join them.

A shame about missing out on monstergirls...maybe next time boyz.

You told them you would think about it when you were older and they accepted before telling you some spots where those monsters typically nested. Turns out the easiest place to find them is their nests. Which they offered to take you around. The nests were VERY well hidden as monsters knew other monsters had keen senses and would choose spots that could cover it up. Hence why you never found them until now. With their help over the next few weeks, you visited many locations and crossed them until finally found it.

What you didn't expect was for it to be a beautiful overgrown vale and the scent in that vale was overpowering and mixed with other familiar yet more subdued scents. The monsters that guided you there were shocked and alarmed when they finally realized 'which' monsters exactly you were seeking. You asked them why and they told you this was the resting place of one of the very last standing Monster Swarm Queens.

...that would explain why you kept on finding the scent fucking everywhere and yet at the same time failed to find anyone. It belonged to a swarm leader. You hadn't heard of any of them since the old folks were young. Everyone thought they all died out turned out some were still around and now...you are right smack dab in their nest. Oops.

A hulking monster soon climbed down from a nearby peak and chittered at you before pausing. It froze and stood still to wait. Until a familiar monster emerged from a nearby tree to take a look at you.

"Ooh well well to think you would find me thanks to the aid of other monsters. Here I was hoping you would catch one of my other children to guide you or find your way here yourself. Damn spirits just had to ruin my fun."

"You knew I was looking this ENTIRE TIME?"

"Of course, I knew and I knew you wanted to learn to hunt yes? What better way to learn than to hunt the hunters? It worked, did it not? At least until you cheated."

"...I wasn't trying to learn to hunt MONSTERS. I wanted to hunt other prey and I needed help to hunt!"

"...Really?" The monster crooks its head.

"YES. Why would I want to hunt monsters?"

"...Did we really fall that far out of popularity? Monster hunters were the most glorious and wealthiest no? Yet you seek lesser prey?"

"..."

"I don't know if should feel flattered or offended," huffed the monster swarm queen.

"Will you help me or not?"

"Fine fine you should know our relationship yes?"
>>
>>5237768
"Mother right?"

"Maker of flesh. Not of soul. Complicated it when it comes to my kind and tongue."

"...So your not my mother?"

"Watch." she utters before you can 'feel' some kind of magic flicker suddenly the hulking monster starts to...shift. Its bones, flesh, and carapace melt, twist, and reform under a new image. "Your flesh came from my ways your soul came from his. in your tongue I am something like a mother in my tongue it is more complicated."

"...Why?"

"Life for Life. I saved his life he helped me make new ones. Sadly I am not apt in the ways of soul forging and that will result in my death," she explains before suddenly changing the topic. "Since you wish to learn how to hunt I shall teach you how to hunt but we do not know the ways of how manhunts. We know the ways of MONSTERS, not men. Luckily you at least know magic so this won't be completely useless for you. It won't be fun especially since you are so young and weak. Your siblings grew much stronger and faster than you did."

"...Wait I have siblings here?"

"Of course. You were merely the only one who came out a man. None of us could figure out how that happened. We tried. Although I am not sure how...related you consider yourself considering our methods vs your own. More apt to say...hm not sure if it translates 'not related' or not very related from the same batch? Bah. I give up. Let's just say they are and yet not are family. If want to think in extended...very big. Personally 'your' family is only those I got from the souls he helped me acquire. Ahh if only things had worked out differently we both could have lived perhaps."

"Anyway let us get started. You wish to hunt so we shall hunt and better pay off those sluts before they demand payment when you're older right now."

"What?"

"...Oh boy you had no idea what you promised did you?"

"..."

"Goddamn slutty bitches. Ugh maybe I am gonna need a babysitter for you let's just say you should uh...value your celibacy VERY highly when dealing with monsters alright? Mating for monsters uh...valuable very valuable. You know what never mind I'll tell you when you're older.

After that, you were dragged off and introduced to how monsters hunt which taught you up close and personal why hardly anyone dared to hunt monsters and why those targeted by monsters were probably going to die. However, the monsters keep an eye on you and guide you to prey. It was easy to wrack up experience and learn how to better use magic. Yet oddly they introduced to you a strange kind of 'fighting styles' meant for those with 'monster blood' or those touched by 'monster heritage'. It was the first time you were taught to fight physically and you were dumb enough to pick the absolute worst possible opponents. Unsurprisingly were completely and utterly destroyed.
>>
>>5237778
You wish you could say your magic made a difference...and it did if you lasting slightly longer counted. Yet it taught you something very important. What it would take to SLAY a monster and what it would take to survive. You had a long way to go. Worst of all the monsters would beat you to an inch of you dying before healing you and the way they healed was pure torture. They had 'healing' magic if their healing magic was merely repurposing their weird flesh shaping to heal wounds and naturally that hurt like hell. It also meant your family didn't catch onto your oddly adventurous journies until the wilderness resulting in you nearly dying repeatedly every day for months until you finally called it off in the name of 'going on a hunt.

In truth, you would 'escape' the training by going on arguably the most suicidally dangerous solo hunt and you would consider it an honest to the gods vacation compared to the hell you were put through. After all you 'completed' your goal for the training and are VERY ahead of schedule! So you should be free right? Right? Fuck you hope you won't be dragged back there for more...your body can take the punishment but your mind cannot.

People really underestimate just how sadistic monsters are in those stories they tell. At least in the fucking stories the monsters KILL and EAT you in the end thereby putting you out of your misery. Instead of just endlessly healing you for your own fucking good and because you literally asked for it...oh man that just makes it so much worse. That was them being 'nice'...you cannot imagine what actual monster 'cruelty' is like.

By now though winter is finally coming and it's a brutal one. Yet you couldn't care less at this point. You managed to sneak enough food from your monster trips that your family is in better shape but not all of it since who would believe you were capable of it? Damned monsters ate well that's for damn sure...supposedly you have some 'savings' with the monsters now and spend it whenever but what can monsters possibly offer? Who would trade with monsters? Bah. You even had enough to last the winter and can help your family scrape by...if you were satisfied with that but you may draw attention or you could go big. Take on the solo hunt this winter or wait until next year on a different easier season if you wanna play it safe.

You were thinking about that as the snow fell and you left home because this time your three older siblings were...naked wrestling. You have learned that all the older people just love doing that hobby. All. Winter. Long. Supposedly it's amusing and keeps them warm or some bullshit like that. So you escaped while it was possible to do so without freezing to death. One with another girlfriend and the other two...together. You were checking up on your kit and debating when you wanted to go. Now technically you don't NEED to anymore...or you could delay until you were older. You are still a kid an older kid yeah but a kid.

Sadly you were caught by...actually the one person who could offer advice as she sneaked up behind you in the snow.

"What's this pack you carrying full of hunting supplies...puwhaha want do you plan to take part in the adulthood rights eh little man? Bit young aren't you? Best wait till next year no or preferably longer?"

"...So what if I do?" you spit back.

"...I know you feel confident about yourself with the new game you have been bringing in for your family squirt but that doesn't mean you should feel the need to take unnecessary risks alright," she sighs and gives you a noogie. "Leave it up to your older siblings."

"..." You don't say a word instead let her hear the ongoing naked wrestling matches going on at home.

"ahem," she coughs blushing a bit in embarrassment. "As I was saying with the extra game thanks your brother can go through the trials and take you all in problem. No need to risk yourself and he doesn't need to be in a rush earning himself a better position."

"I have magic."

"...So you do," she agrees. "You have also been training very hard. No longer nearly as squishy as you used to be and very smart. Not like the rest of these dullards. If you pulled off a solo winter hunt in a few years I may even be interested in you myself. So promise to wait a few years?"

"I thought you liked girls and hated boys considering the rumors?"

"...Those boys deserved it and girls are fun."

You recall the many...atrocious rumors about her behavior. If it wasn't for her sparing the local men you doubt anyone would want her around at all. She and her father both love raiding and both have very similar tastes...come think of it her mother too. That entire fucking family is just...how does your sister do it? She is like an angel and her BFF is...the opposite. Huh come to think of it she has never been bullied thanks to this friend of hers...hm.

"If I go anyway."

"I won't stop you little man but what if you die? What about your family?"

"What if I succeed?"

"...How about we make a wager if you fail you come back alive alright?"

"If I win?"

"You will be mine for breaking that promise brat," after that she grabs your bag. "Remember to wait a few years it's not a rush kid."

"That's rich coming from you," you mutter before shouting to her. "What if I win that bet?"

"If you beat my record this winter it will be a surprise."

Stupid dice demanded a 69 which is lewd option otherwise it wouldn't have come up until now and then in a joking manner. The thing about naked wrestling is cause MC is still a kid and since it's a stone age people don't really have anything to do. No none of your family is related to each other so no incest. The 69 roll would have been a lot more awesome if the MC wasn't a kid...alas what a waste.

Also IC casualties are very high due to various threats and things that wanna kill you(like monsters). So high pop growth is VERY important. the fact that nothing better to do is very helpful for this. Seriously man it's early stone age conditions what do you think people are going to do to pass the time ESPECIALLY during winter?

The female character is joking with the MC and doesn't realize just how 'strong' he actually is she is also a special early edition waifu option if you choose the right choices that are normally not available until the next generation. Think of her as a secret surprise or an early unlock option.. To date, nobody has any clue how strong he is beside the monsters but the monsters are strong as hell so the MC as a few...skewed perception of his power. So nobody knows how strong he actually is. They just know he is tricky cause of magic and is getting into good shape/starting to act like a kid again. Although still as antisocial as before(cause too busy getting shit wrecked by monsters or magic practice)

You do wait. Until the dead of winter. Then you leave with nothing but a small pack on your back as you stop by the home of the only people strong enough to take back your kills this winter and crazy enough to also hunt in dead of winter for fun. Luckily they are still home and haven't left yet. Although as you approach you can tell her parents are also engaging in naked wrestling...no wonder she is always finding other things to do. They are fucking loud. You heard them long before you saw their home.

Turned out she wasn't at home but in a nearby empty clearing practicing sparring with some raid pack members and she was mopping the floor with them despite the age difference. Not that surprising considering she accomplished the solo winter hunt as a young girl and took part in raiding with the adults right after by the side of her father. She was freakishly strong and she soon noticed you before jogging you as you told her that you were going on a hunting trip.

"Oh really...well don't venture too far and go with friends? Good to know you made some."

"Actually I overheard you about how you accomplished that solo winter hunt with the huge trophies thanks to helping...that was inhuman," you admitted. "I came here because I am gonna need help relaying my kills."

"...What?" She asks her jaw dropping her shock. "You...know?"

"Yup."

"...You also know necromancy."

"Yup."

"...Ah fuck,"

"So about that special surprise..." you tease her as you head off.

"Only if you beat my record, my twerp. You better come back alive and without a fucking kill! Shit," she grumbles after the shock wears off. "What are the damned odds the little brat would know necromancy and have undead buddies. Fuck. It took me some work to secretly find that damned loophole and that's assuming he didn't make any new 'friends' out in the wilds...ugh."

"Any problem Zixra?" Asks a raider.

"...Don't go hunting with my old man any time soon we might need to go on a trip."

"In this fucking weather?"

"...What do you think my Dad would react if a guy completes a winter solo hunt this year?"

"Finally finds himself a son in law. No offense gal but you two are fucking terrible when it comes to attrition and finding guys. I mean shit he tries to kill them all the time and you keep torturing them."

"...That is what I'm afraid of. What if it's a kid?"

"Psht impossible. What good is a little kid?"

"...okay maybe there is some hope after all," she whispers to herself.

"That is what you get for having impossible standards sheesh and maybe be less hardcore you know."

"Oh shut up Daz."

"Yet you wonder why nobody wants to date you and why you resorted to ravaging during raids. No shit."

When you set out to hunt you could not believe your luck. Winter is the hardest time to hunt. Everything is either hibernating and gone or mean and desperate. Throw in the terrible cold and whether there is a reason why nobody likes to hunt in winter. Yet not only did you manage to quickly stumble upon some friendly monsters but even a nearby old battlefield full of ancient warriors whom you made an interesting discovery. It was a den of no ordinary beast nor monster.

Dragons.

Normally you wouldn't want to fight something like that but...well you have a lot of help and this dragon is an Elder Drake and Wyrms nearby. Hell, there is even a flight of wyverns if that wasn't within your interest there is a REAL dragon prowling nearby. A full-blooded pure breed had recently taken up a roost and its wounded. Although pure blooded dragons are known to be intelligent and won't be easy to full or hunt. Not to mention it might be a terrible idea to make an enemy of Dragonkind. They really REALLY know how to hold a grudge according to the old man and have insanely long memories. This is why you are instead considering a Hydra. Sure a Hydra is normally impossible to hunt considering its size, power, and regeneration but...imagine how much you could harvest from its regenerating body? Assuming you catch the bastard.

Hydra. Go big or go home huh?

----
You choose Hydra. A very risky and dangerous proposition but most importantly it will be a very short hunt since after you capture it you won't be able to afford to hunt anything else lest it breaks free. Meaning you will be able to return right away. Luckily the cold slows the Hydra down and the ice in the waters forces it out of its usual defensive haunts. The hard part is the Hydra knows this too and keeps a low profile. Too bad you already found traces of the Hydra's secret lair which is well hidden in a nearby hot springs in a nearby mountainous forest.

Unluckily for the Hydra you find a great ambush spot for the Hydra when it goes out to hunt. Unlike other overgrown reptiles the Hydra's insane regeneration forces it to feed throughout the winter but Hydra's are also not picky eaters. They'll eat anything in fact thanks to their very potent acids. As you see the Hydra approach you realize...this is not a small Hydra. It had over a dozen heads. Three tails. Six legs. All hissing and looking around warily. Too bad for the Hydra danger is below.

As the snow and ice below it explode upward revealing undead outsiders who attack. Catching it completely off guard but it reacts slowly thanks to the cold and surprise. Shifting away as it relies upon its regeneration it recovers from the many wounds the undead inflicted before counterattacking the undead. Distracting the Hydra from danger from above. As monsters quietly crept closer through the trees and leaped onto the hydra directly to join in the fighting.

Seeing the amount of damage the undead and monsters inflicted you were certain that not even a Dragon could survive this amount of punishment...alas it was no dragon you are dealing with but a Hydra. Its regeneration ensured its fighting condition and its wrath devastated the undead ranks. Sadly its attempts to strike terror into their unbeating frozen hearts were impossible and they never flinched despite the losses. The monsters meanwhile took advantage to start trying to tie up the hydra with their webbing and vines. Sadly the Hydra was too strong and not worn out enough to be tied down yet.

That was your cue to join in. As you cast spells to distract the hydra. Say what you will about wild magic. It was VERY distracting due to how random it is and this time you got lucky. Best of all necromancy could SLOW down how fast it could regenerate. The slower it regenerated the weaker it became. It was a careful balancing act of keeping the Hydra distracted with wild magic without blowing yourself up in the process and unleashing enough necromantic spells to retard its regeneration to wear it out faster without stopping the regeneration completely. Basically a huge magical challenge for you AND you had to dodge its damned biting heads and acid sprays at the same time...if you hadn't been through the hellish monster practice.
You would have died.

Thankfully you were not slow on your feet and you were tough thanks to that monstrous torture. You so ducked, dodged, rolled, swung, danced, and ran through the trees while dodging its biting heads and acid sprays sizzling all around you. The entire time you never stopped casting spells. As the monsters climbed all over the Hydra, attacking, and trying to tie it up. Sometimes they get thrown off or crushed. Most of the losses came from the undead underneath who kept on stabbing and slashing the Hydra's legs and underbelly. Forcing it to divert its focus from its tender underbelly since organs are a lot more costly to fix.

Slowly but surely the Hydra was slowly getting tied up and exhausted from the countless wounds that were regenerating slower and slower. On top of all the poison that the monsters inflicted and the few tricks, the few undead standing could unleash. Sadly Hydras are known for their insane endurance, toughness, and foremost their regeneration. So instead of a swift battle, it turned into a very time consuming marathon. As ropes were broken and reminded. Undead slowly ground down and the monsters wearing out. Forcing them to take turns. Even you struggled but unlike them, you couldn't afford to take a break because your magic was the reason Hydra's healing was slowing down so much. If you stopped it would quickly recuperate and this would all be for nothing.

The problem is you are slowing down and you are tired. Your head is killing you from too much magic. The hydra's attacks are getting closer and closer to hitting you. Especially as more of your help dying or forced to take a break. Resulting in more of its focus being drawn on you. You need to find some way to end this. Soon. You know the Hydra is covered in countless wounds and is currently too bound to escape but not enough to no longer be able to fight back. That is the problem.

Alright, give me 1 more 1d100.

How it works is you make offerings to things like spirits, gods, ect and in exchange, they offer you a boon. Right now you are asking for something before paying and thus are in debt to them. Making it impossible to acquire future aid until the debt is repaid.

Other factions will abuse the fuck out of this mechanic to gain blessings when doing shit on a regular basis because boons and blessings are amazing buffs and can bail your ass out of the fire when used correctly. However, it's never for free. You have to pay for it.

It's why religious factions have a serious headstart but are constantly in debt. Also keep in mind WHO you are indebted to and what you pray to. Demons for example are known to never refuse but oh man are they hellish debtors to have.

Spirits are a pretty basic and starter option but their neutral and decent all rounders. That doesn't mean there aren't powerful spirits comparable to Gods its just tricky to find and entice them as, unlike Gods, they do not obsess over things like Worship for instance.

It's worth noting that thanks to helping to witnessing the death of an Underworld you are owed a Single Powerful Boon from the Dead. In addition, the monsters owe you a minor favor from the extra food and materials they got from your practicing. Cause no currency it's a barter and favor exchange based system right now.

Only if you make a pact. Most spirit magic is actually the result of mimicking how the spirits utilize their powers via magic. Spirit magic is in truth a very LARGE group of magics. Even Demon magic is technically a type of Spirit Magic just a more specialized variant. It is also possible to make a deal with spirits to help you with magic usually in exchange for mana or other forms of payment.

You throw every last speck of mana you have into a wild magic spell hoping you can finish off the damned hydra before things get any worse. The damned thing is clearly trying to outlast you all and it's working. Sadly right as you feel a massive influx of mana buildup and the spell form...you can feel the spell already going awry because of wild magic. In desperation and panic, you call upon the spirits to aid you in exchange for payment later. The spirits answer you but they demand payment as you can feel their mana and guidance fixing the flux in the spell just barely. Preventing a catastrophic failure but sadly not quite enough to make it go off without a hitch.

The spell forms creating what looks like a vortex forming in the snow that suddenly slams into the hydra and begins to encase it slowly hardening into ice. Sadly right now it's nothing but snow and therefore not as effective. Eventually, though it will completely encase the hydra in ice. The only problem is you aren't sure if you can last that long. Especially with how the Hydra reacts and how utterly exhausted you are thanks to that spell.

The Hydra goes ballistic. Thrashing around and finishing off the remaining undead. Leaving only you and the monsters. The monsters for their effort try to slow down the hydra with more of their webbing and attacks but it's clear they're exhausted and the loss of the undead has them reeling who used to be their meatshields. As a result, they are now taking losses. While the Hydra is suddenly acting as if it is enjoying a second wind. This is a real possibility as the lack of damage intake is finally allowing it to catch up with its regeneration.

You know the monsters are getting exhausted and don't have the numbers to keep taking losses. You yourself are also exhausted. While the Hydra is beginning its counterattack. Even with the webbing, wounds, and heavy magical snow slowly hardening into ice. It still has a lot of fighting spirit left in it. You...may end up losing but you still have a chance to escape with your life if you leave now.

What do?

>>
>>5238737
Dragon has no reason to accept since it doesn't know who you are. Now if you had rep with dragons than yeah it would be possible. Right now you only have a rep with Undead and Monsters. Along with a small local tribe since you are antisocial. All you did is hunt and there isn't much to interact with when you hunting or obsessively training. If you invested into charisma instead of magic your options would be a LOT better in terms of going into debt. At least you aren't a fragile magic user but a tanky one.

You could try to reach out to the monsters but the debt they owe isn't big enough to deal with a Hydra all over again. After all, they also want a share. Another option is burning the boon with the dead but just to warn you the boon you have is REALLY strong.

Basically, if you wanna go into debt then your only options are Undead or Monsters. Spirits are already tapped out and you haven't interacted with them enough for them to be willing to offer you additional credit. See being a charisma specced character is actually REALLY helpful in this Quest. Reputation and favors are a huge deal in addition to the usual diplomacy. So Charisma specialized characters are no joke and not by any means weaklings. Get the shit beat out of you because they have a lot of friends and favors to call in are strong.

>>5238761
>Ask monsters for more help and we'll be in their debt
>Overdraw yourself to chuck a wild spell at it

Yeah using the Undead boon would be stupid here, so I guess going into debt with the monsters it is. I really want this hydra. Hey, maybe they'll just ask for sex when we're older
>>
>>5238761
Correction the debt the monsters owe you isn't large enough to cover them sending you reinforcements. You DO have enough pull for them to help you out but you will owe them since the amount they owe you isn't large enough to cover it.

The dead owe you are a VERY large Boon. You can choose to expend it on the hydra but...well you could always just take debt now to repay later and save that major boon for later for when you really need it or want a huge boost to something.

I should say though that the undead and monsters aren't the funnest factions to owe. In fact they have a downright terrible reputation and are generally a hostile faction. You gained access to the undead thanks to your choices same is true with monsters. They would normally be restricted but your dynasty may lose access to them depending on the choices you make later on(see they only like the current MC).

Monsters offer the best predators since this is a hunt they would offer the best direct boost.
Undead are all about being too fucking stubborn to stay dead and never forget but sleepy/disconnected to use it. They would offer some tanky overpowered mofos that would keep YOU alive and possibly some forgotten tricks if they aren't senile.

>>5238766
Sexy times with monsters is one of the possible forms of repayment but how much and how long or whatever else they may demand is up to barter(shame about you not speccing into charisma for a better deal but that can change).
>>
>>5238770
Hmm then I guess I'll go with oweing the undead. Debts are bad to have but they're also a way to build a relationship or atleast familiarity. I see us interacting with the undead more than monsters so, why not. They'll also probably not want part of the hydra either. Sorry for the flip-flopping of votes

The monsters were gonna get paid no matter what you choose. The undead joined in because it was a good fight.

In terms of debt the only difference it makes is how to repay it. Monsters are easier to repay than undead because monsters still have living requirements. Undead do not which makes it very annoying since common means of payment are worthless to them(see wtf do the undead want with food?)

You have been warned about the dangers of overdrawing magic but it's the only way. The monsters remaining might not be enough to finish this especially since you only cast a single spell more and it will have consequences. If you don't it will all be for nothing and yet you need something more to tip the balance into your favor. The damned Hydra just doesn't fucking stop. No wonder they are so feared and hardly anyone is stupid enough to hunt one.

...Well until you anyway, but you have one more way. This will put you into debt with the monsters but you can get some reinforcements to finish off the hydra. So you call out to the monster who shrieks into the air. At first, nothing happens as you prepare your last spell. Then you could 'feel' it. A towering hungering presence coming from above and the hydra felt it too. It panicked and screeched ignoring everyone else including you. Who it was previously just trying to eat in a desperate attempt to defend itself. When something slammed down onto it from above like a meteor.

This gave you the perfect opportunity to focus everything in your last spell while the Hydra was too distracted with its new foe and even the other monsters were busy trying to finish tying it off. Your spell went off and you could feel the ground quake as earth that was previously shaking from the impact from above starts to rattle again this time coming from below. As a jagged edge of rocks slams into the wailing hydra from below. Caught between the predator from above. Stony impalement from below, and the hardening ice. The Hydra was finally overwhelmed as the mixture of ice, webbing, vines, earth, and its wounds finally overpowered the gigantic beast. So it finally collapsed.

Giving you just enough time to glimpse at the monster that came to aid you in its hulking armored and winged form before passing out from overdrawn mana exhaustion and tiredness. As it rose from the whirlwind of snow, acid, and blood. When you awoke you pleased the find the Hydra still there albeit now neatly packaged in a giant ball of carefully broken stone, tied in webbing, and ice casing. Next to a small fire and then apparently you were both rolled over closer to the tribe some distance but not very far lest others notice the GIANT FUCKING HYDRA encased in its...new cage. Shit, where are you gonna put that?

Yet the feeling that you survived and succeeded...was incredible. Sure you cannot afford to hunt anything else as it's only a matter of time before the Hydra wakes up and recovers from its wounds enough to escape. Meaning someone has to be around to keep it hurting and harvest from it in the process. Sure enough, you see a few monsters prowling nearby who approach you. Despite having passed out you still feel a migraine, sore, and tired. You had a very long walk back home.
>>
>>5238846
After confirming that you now owed them. That the monsters already took their share of meat from the hydra and at the same time kept it 'sedated'. Luckily part way there you encountered some raiders with a certain berserker who just 'happened' to be out hunting with his daughter who confirmed your feats and newfound achievements as well as rights. Nobody would have believed it if they hadn't seen for their own eyes the captive Hydra or the fact that you were capable of the magic used to take it down.

Although for some reason you could swear the father and daughter pair looked like they were about to cry and kept on giving you funny looks for some reason. Still, you were now a living legend. A mere boy who captured a hydra ALIVE in a solo hunt proving his manhood and ability. During the hardest time of the year no less. If there was no living proof there wasn't a chance in hell anyone would have believed it otherwise and to be honest you would not have blamed them. Sure you cheated a 'bit' but technically there only had to be a solo 'man' to participate. Technically you didn't actually cheat at all.

The only problem was...where the fuck you were going to put it? Hydras might not be picky eaters but they DO eat a lot and they are very strong. It would be a disaster if it escaped. Not to mention the near endless supply of materials and flesh it would produce. Which would also make you a huge target. Your are not dumb you listened to the stories and know the peace of this place is temporary. Especially with such a juicy prize.

>Gained 1 Captive Hydra
So long as a hydra is well fed it will produce flesh and materials that can be harvested without end. Basically you can covert feed into hydra meat and materials.

Where do you put the Hydra?

"So about that bet," you ask her with a smug grin.

"...You are killing me here brat you weren't supposed to succeed and really a fucking Hydra of ALL things you could bring back alive at that?" Grumbles the upset raider gal who stares with dull eyes at the neatly encased and alive hydra before tossing you something wrapped in fur. "Would have been so much better if you waited a few years first damn it I could have had some fun too that way," you could hear her grumble but you weren't paying attention.

Whatever that fur contained it was POWERFUL in magic. Radiating from it. You had seen a few powerful things but they were so powerful as to be inconceivable or blinding. This is different. It was searing but you could still see it. You catch the fur wrapped package and opened it before she could finish and promptly regretted it when you realized the fur was magical too and was protecting wasn't protecting the thing within. Rather it was protecting YOU from IT.

The moment you opened it you could feel something stare balefully at you and strike magically but before it could hit you. She reacted faster leaping over and throwing a much thicker and more protective piece of unknown blackened fur etched in bloody patterns. Covering it up and blocking it.

"Damn brat I thought with you knowing magic you would know better and check first. Especially since it was so strong and obviously dangerous," she mutters and picks it up from the ground.

"...What the fuck was that?" You curse realizing it was both familiar and unfamiliar at the same time.

"Hex heart of a Demon of great power. Apparently it was killed by parents when they were younger and travelling," she explains. "Figured since you liked magic but I knew you weren't likely to encounter anything magical to practice your own magical defenses right? Hence I figured this would be a good gift."

"It fucking tried to kill me!"

"Tried," she pointed out. "It would have failed. You definitely would end up cursed though and it would hurt. Pretty sure part of the soul is still trapped inside considering how much my mother loved giggling over it. Hence why it would be the perfect training device for your magic."

...You must admit you never had a chance to practice your magic against magic. Especially against something so foul and dirty. Curses, hexes, and the like. Sure you have some experience using them yourself thanks to necromancy but not how to protect yourself from it.

"Sounds like your mother has a fucked up collection."

"Oh, you have no idea. My dad does too. The two of them really like their trophies," she admits.

"...Wait why did you have it on you?"

"Like I said training device. Do you really think I wanna be helpless if I ran into a shaman or something else that could use magic? Shit fucking hurt."

"I thought you didn't use magic?"

"Exactly my point. Do you think you have it bad? Try guarding against it WITHOUT magic to help," she grumbles and visibly shudders at the bad memories.

"Don't worry about I got spares at home. So I'm sure you already must have some idea where to put the hydra right?"

"..."

"...Was this really on the spur of the moment kind of thing?"

"Uh, it was such a great opportunity!" You insisted on defending yourself.

"Despite being just a little kid I am shocked at the sheer size of your balls. Normally I would say your stupid but you know magic so that's not true. You make grown men look tiny in comparison. That is just great...seriously though where are you going to put it?"

"Any ideas?"

"Well, I would suggest having your little 'helpers' establish a place for you or ask my old man for help. Be careful with that though he is kinda...butthurt over your youth."

"Why?"

"He was...um..." she starts blushing and looking awkward. Sadly a passing raider overheard and ruined it for her.

"He was hoping you would be old enough to be worth testing in order to determine if you worthy of plowing his daughter puwahahaha,"

"Yup his quest finally ended where it began but the boy is too young....ahahaha," cracks up another raider.

...That would explain why the man was acting so strangely. Looking over you could see her entire face was as red as her hair.

"Just...ignore those idiots."

Your eyes narrowed in suspicion when you recalled she was just as devastated as he was. "...You were just as butthurt about me being too young weren't you?"

"...In my defense any woman would be. You are SUPPOSED to accomplish this hunt when you are of age to prove you are worthy and available. Yet you are too young to...um...perform. All the girls are going to be incredibly butthurt and upset over this. By the spirits in a few years when you are older...the competition is going to be insane."

"Competition?"

"You might be the antisocial oddball but that won't matter after this. You will never have to worry about a lack of women again," she patiently explains. "In a few years...I'll teach you about girls as you are going to need it."

"Don't I have sisters for that?"

"Are they strong as me?"

"..."

"I didn't think so. Trust me when I say it's not the weaker ones you need to be worried about."

"By the way how DID you accomplish your own solo hunt despite being so young yourself?"

She smiles at you and answers. "If you tell me the truth about yours then I'll tell you the truth about mine. Deal?"

>Y/N?

Unsurprisingly after returning nobody really believed it at first until they saw the hydra for themselves. Resulting in your fame skyrocketing and you instantly became a legend. You were already well known thanks to your magic and oddness but you were too antisocial for it to really matter much. That no longer mattered. It was only a matter of time before word spread to the other peoples and tribes. For now, only your tribe knew but that wouldn't last long.

You finally had a fucking break since now your family was truly well taken care of thanks to gains from the hydra. If it weren't for the lack of people and protection you would be at the very top in terms of wealth. Buying some slaves and bribing some protection could offer that. Either that or could show off your magic. People won't say shit now if you utilized some undead guards 24/7 due to your newfound renown. Something to keep in mind, especially with a juicy prize like a captive Hydra making you a raid target.

Yet at the same time, you also needed to pay off what you owed to the spirits and monsters. The monsters already made it clear they didn't mind waiting a few years and extending your credit until you were an adult. Apparently, they had some...ideas about repayment when you were old enough then and didn't mind waiting. The spirits on the other hand will not offer any assistance until their repayment. Which means making an offering and appeasing them. Until then they will no longer offer any assistance.

Still, now you had plenty of time to do stuff and no real worries pressing down on you in terms of survival. Well except for the security of your new wealth and paying off debts. Beyond that you can do whatever you want so what will you focus on?

Looks like the MC is staying on the path of being an antisocial oddball for now. Choosing multiple options is viable but keep in mind there will be a smaller bonus compared to one big bonus if you focus on a single task. This is less so during timeskip sessions because you have plenty of time to do a lot of shit.

One thing I want to point out before I forget is you would have failed to take down the Hydra if it weren't for your monster training sessions which upgraded your toughness and agility enough that you were able to survive long enough even after your meatshields were taken out that you were able to finish off the Hydra. Otherwise, you would have been fucked.

Being a tanky mage absolutely saved your ass. The MC might not look it but he is one tough agile little bugger of a mage. However, without magic, you are fucked since you do not know how to really fight back without it just take and avoid hits.

>>5239521
I won't lie and say that won't be nice. If only so I can introduce more characters and having charisma is actually very useful. You kinda screwed yourself over when it comes to avoiding female attention with the Hydra though. Which serves as a constant living reminder of your awesomeness. The women are going to be all over you in a few years and the MC is too autistic to deal with it properly at the current rate lol. Good thing early stone age tribals are blunt as hell and will beat him over the head with a rock before dragging him into a cave for snu snu. So even he should be able to notice.
>>
You tell about the fact that you used undead and even made use of a pack of monsters to aid you in this hunt. Even if the undead you brought along were entirely wiped out and the monsters also got their asses kicked after losing the dead meatshields. You were nervous considering the...very hostile relationship monsters have with people and yet she smiled warmly with narrowed eyes and cracked up.

"Hah, I figured undead were involved since you knew necromancy but monsters too? Fuck me I did NOT see that coming. How did you even manage to get in good with them...damn and here I thought what I accomplished was impressive. I never managed to win over any monsters though."

"You...you don't mind?" You cautiously ask.

"Psht nope. Only weaklings fear monsters the strong see them as a worthy challenge and rivals that they should be. Why should I fear and hate them when I should relish the possibility of matching against them and defeating them?" She explains with a longing gaze and a sigh. "Of course, I am an exception to this. Too many weaklings and people holding grudges that they are weak enough to be prey to monsters. It's their own fault really. If they didn't they should be strong and then the monsters would leave them alone wouldn't they?"

Catching a glimpse into her philosophy and what you yourself knew from interacting with monsters...you realized she was not wrong. Monsters are surprisingly simple creatures even if they are a very brutal, cruel, and vicious bunch.

"So what about you then?"

"Eh, nothing so fancy. When I was out playing around during a hunt a blizzard showed up and I got lost. Took shelter in a cave that turned out to also have company. We were snowed in and shared our food despite the language differences we hit it off and went hunting together despite the dangers since the food was running low. It's how I ran into the Greenskins and the Giants. Thanks to their aid I figured why not take advantage and show off you know? Get taken seriously instead of being treated like a little girl. I always wanted to go on a raid with my father and his men but he never let me as they would say I was 'too young still'."

"We...may have underestimated the blizzard and how lost we all were. I ran into a few other foreign tribes and even some spiritual and magic beasts who were intelligent. I mean there was a reason why I was missing for so long even after the damned blizzard wore off it took a while to figure out where I was and find my way back. As a result, though I was able to team up with a bunch of different beings and fought even more. Got my first taste of raiding, killing, challenging mighty foes, and true teamwork thanks to them. Of course, I had to share the loot and I used up a LOT during my travels before I finally made it back home but they were kind enough to help me carry back and stash a ton of loot. Not to mention let me hunt by myself while keeping an eye out for trouble."
>>
>>5239607
"...Aren't those also monsters though?"

"Psht no, that is just bullshit used to demonize other people. They can be reasoned with while monsters by their very nature are strictly predators and parasites thus behave accordingly. You can't just peacefully coexist with something that constantly wants to kill, eat, and torture you."

"Damn I wish my hunt lasted longer," you admit thinking of all the wasted possibilities.

"Hah your fault for choosing to capture something alive first thing instead of the last thing," she giggles. "Allows the rest of us to save some damned dignity and pride. By the way, you do know where you are going to put it right?"

"...I was thinking of asking your Dad. He has someplace big and secure enough right?"

"Eh...maybe. I mean we never really kept anything prisoner besides slaves," she mutters before calling him over so you could ask.

"Hm...yeah I have a place. I had it built back before I realized everything around here was too fucking weak to be worth capturing and holding for live training and action. Should be convertible into a cage for the Hydra. Never had a damn use for it before this," he grumbled. "Everything just too weak to be useless and everything else too far to be worth the trouble."

That filled you with relief knowing you had a solution in hand but before you could thank him he changed the topic.

"By the way brat considering what you did here I was wondering if you would be interested in joining my family. No pressure and it doesn't mean you have to abandon your old one either. I and your old man went way back but now...well it would be a waste otherwise don't you think?" He asks you with a pressuring aura.

"That is a great idea to invite him to your band I was wondering when you were going to ask...wait family?" She asks realizing she misheard and she snaps over towards. "Did you ask Mom first?"

"Nah it will be fine she also worries about you."

"...Why skip the band invites and go straight to the fucking family huh?" She hisses at him.

"Duh he's just a kid otherwise I would have tested him already but this way I can make sure and keep away the competition," he answers back ignoring you standing there.

"...Do I have any say in this," you cough interrupting them and reminding them you to exist.

"Of course you do...just uh ignore my dad he is just disappointed in my useless brothers and wants a better replacement," she answers you.

"Hey! You could at least tell him the benefits! Look kid I'll invite you into my family or my band. If you accept my offer into my band you'll just be any other member. If you accept my other offer I'll treat you like my own son. I know the old man passed away before he could teach you everything and train you personally but I also survived that era personally along with my wife. Aren't you curious about how strong we are and how much we know? We will teach you personally and all of it."

"..." You realize that is a VERY tempting offer.
>>
>>5239620
You also realize there is something he is leaving out but looking at his embarrassed flushing daughter you suddenly know what that is...but there is one thing you wish to know before you consider it.

"What is your wife exactly?" You suddenly question him.

"..." He stays silent a bit before looking around carefully. "Figures you would pick up on it and somehow not even the new shaman ever did. If you must know she ain't of mankind but something else. She is no threat so long as I'm around though still dangerous but otherwise fine."

"There...aren't any other requirements right? Nothing I have to do or anything in terms of obligations?"

"Hm family is family. I just think it would be a waste leaving you to rot with your talents and frankly after this you have one HELL of a target on your back but you got no one to protect you. This tribe is too weak and nameless to offer anything. So I just want to put you in my corner until you grow up and can handle things for yourself. It's the least I can do. To be honest I thought you would just keep a low profile like we're doing but this came as quite the shock."

Your eyes bulged out and your jaw dropped when you realized what he was hinting at.

"...You...you KNEW?"

"Of course I did. I ain't weak and I ain't stupid. It's just I figured you were doing your own thing and keeping it low. I wasn't about to fuck that up for you and didn't mind offering your family a helping hand either. I and him go way back. So helping out you orphans wasn't a problem."

"...Here I thought you wanted me for your daughter."

He just shrugs. " I won't lie and say that isn't within my interests to find a worthy man for her but it's not something I can force now can I? Not with you tricky magical types anyway. If you were brute it would have easy to just beat you into submission and call it good."

"DAD!" She screams while punching and kicking him. You were certain if it were anyone else he would have been sent flying.

Instead, he just chuckles and continues. "Well excuse me for worrying about my daughter's love life...anyway let me show you the cage for the hydra and finish setting it up before it wakes up. Any idea what you are going to do with all that meat and materials anyway?"

"...I'm sure I can find some use for it. Hydra is good eating and materials are good."

"Hah you have the capital to set up your own tribe with that damned Hydra shame about being too young otherwise you could easily just make one!" He jokes.

"...What about you then?"

"Recuperating just like everyone else. I might not look it but I'm actually much weaker than I used to be at my peak. Takes time to recover until then lay low and had a family. Simple."

Join his family?

>>5239627
After taking care of the hydra cage business which turned out to be a crude arena made of wood, stone, and mud dugout that was pretty good sized all things considered. You took advantage of your newfound wealth to make an offering to repay the spirits via a ceremony. A bit of a time consuming process to exchange for items that the spirits would find better than hydra parts before finally sacrificing it all to them to repay the debt and earn back their favor. As a result, you DID discover that some spirits prefer certain offerings more than others. Like Hydra parts for instance were favored by more bestial and bloodthirsty spirits. Which obviously wasn't enough to completely repay everyone else without getting to know any specific spirits and having them serve as an intermediary. A task you could consider looking into later.

After taking care of that you focused on your magical gains and exhaustion from the hunt. It may have nearly killed you but you could feel stronger than ever and think about your discoveries. For one, you had no means to defend yourself magically. For another, your magic was...too unreliable and short lived for such a prolonged fight. It took much of the day to finally bring down that fucking hydra. Your magical storage simply wasn't large enough. At least you acquired some insights into your magic and made a great discovery that the spirits could help guide, empower, and even teach you magic. Who knows what else also can?

So you spent the remaining part of the year recuperating and considering what you should do in the long term. You have a few more years left before you think you will enter puberty. A time to consider what you shall focus on before things get awkward for you while you still can.

What do?

That is what partnerships are for to cover your weaknesses and about making friends. You are about to make some very...unusual ones thanks to this choice. You just keep odder lol.

>>5239668
>>5239684
You have joined the Baz's Family.

Members
Baz (Dad Beserker)
Sivathexaz(Mom)
Zixrathmora
Grek
Mrok
Taliza and Torro
Youngers(in my defense child mortality is very high so they will be named if they survive long enough this is true in general)

You choose to accept Baz's offer and join his family. You were always an orphan after all and figured it would be nice to see what you could learn. To be honest you thought it would be more about martial fighting but unexpectedly his wife knew magic too. So when you went to double down on your magic practice she showed up to teach you. That was how you discovered her terrible secret. She was a master of the dark arts.

"The closest thing to dark arts is a simple matter of opinion, philosophy, and perceived morality. Tell me is necromancy or monster magic evil?"

"...Many say it is dabbling in death and defiles the ancestors' graves. As for monsters they are cruel, vicious, brutal, and evil."

"Yet a monster is no more than a predator and you are its prey. It is following the natural order. Its magic is natural. Necromancy is mere magic that involves natural death and decay. How is either of those unnatural? How is it evil? Magic is not evil. It is a tool. It is up to wielders in how it shall be used. Many will call you out for dark magics but are you, evil boy?"

"..."

"Does it matter? Even demon magic is literally spirit magic but it was infused with evil purpose therefore it became evil but does that make demon magic evil when its makers are evil?"

"It's...a tool an evil tool."

"No such thing as an evil tool. A tool is a tool. It is the wielder who determines whether it will be used for good or evil. Ignore those who attempt to shame you for using 'tools' that they frown upon. They lack the spine, guts, and courage to use what is necessary. They think that limiting their tools and options makes them 'better'. It makes them WEAK! They cannot handle the tools so they are determined that any who are better than them that actually can are evil in order to make themselves feel better for they are inferior weak wretches."

"..."

"So tell me boy are you weak?"

"...No."

"Louder."

"No."

"Louder."

"NO!"

"See? Neither of us is weak. We dabble in magic those pathetic fools do not dare imagine. They limit themselves and strangle their own potential in their hubris. Do not ever trust those who claim to be righteous and good. At least those who are evil that admit it are true to their nature and can always be trusted to act accordingly. You can never count on such for the good and the evil in denial."

"So necromancy is not evil."
>>
>>5239697
"Never was. It is one of the most natural and powerful magicks there is. There cannot be life without death. Necromancy is the magic to communicate with the dead and interact with death. To speed up decay and feed life itself. That makes it powerful and that is why many mistakes it for evil because those who craved power used it for their own goals ruining its reputation. Well, that and people find death disturbing."

"What of monster magic?"

"Monster magic is complicated. Monsters are...very efficient and powerful predators and parasites. If you are lucky you aren't their type of prey and therefore not their problem. Monsters use a type of nature magic and their own instinctive magicks like that you see among magical beasts. Stuff that they are born with but their learned magics are closer to natural and life aspects. Yet due to the sheer power, toughness, and nature of monsters, their magic is very...brutal and difficult to control. Often lethal but monsters are tough enough to endure it and master it anyway. Yet due to their...natures, it has acquired a very cruel and vicious reputation. Well deserved but technically it's a type of nature magic. Although arguably of the dark and bloody variety."

"Yet you claim demon magic isn't even evil?"

"Its makers are evil but demon magic itself is a tool that can be used to do nonevil no? Technically Demon magic is a type of spirit magic but one that has a very nasty reputation. Hence why everyone fears it. To be fair demon magic is costly but powerful yet it is very dirty."

"So people are not going to like the type of magicks we use?"

"Depends on the magic but in general magic scares people cause its magic. Just to varying degrees. Knowing multiple magics is useful because they all have their strengths and weaknesses. That doesn't mean you should underestimate a specialist. They are extremely strong and woe to you if you encounter any if you do not have their weakness in the hand."

"So should I specialize?"

"Most do when they grow older. As a child, it's a good idea to branch out to make sure you have many tools to choose from and figure out what you're talented at. Later in life, you will want to specialize otherwise magic will never be able to progress and ensure your legacy. Nobody ever pays attention to those masters of nothing because they never made any actual worthwhile improvements to any spells."

"So what you do specialize in?"

"Good question child. I am a master of Dark and Demon Magicks. Now from what I understand you never did learn how to really guard yourself very well with magic right? Especially against magic vs magic?"

You...have a very bad feeling about this.
>>
>>5239707
Sure enough, you discovered the hard way why everyone hated dark and demon magic. Shit fucking HURT. The curses. Hexes. It was so goddamn irritating. The PAIN. The fucking PAIN. It was dirty. Always trying to catch you off guard, weaken you, debilitate you, cripple you, and make you suffer. Begging for death. Worst of all dark magic was also REALLY strong in defense. You had no idea darkness spells were so hard to break. So the mage using it is tanky as shit and makes you suffer the entire time.

Still, it made you realize you didn't originally have any good defense magicks. The value of simply outlasting and weakening your opponent instead of just blasting them to death. As in the loot is a lot better since it's not all destroyed. That was how you spent the next year or so under the tutelage of that she-devil that is your new mother.

Even the other raiders and Baz of all people avoided her. Seeing her cruelty and lessons you now understood why she was so avoided. However thanks to her you finally learned how to defend yourself with magic, picked up new magic, and advanced your old ones. She...was actually a very good teacher. One who was remarkably unbiased and helpful. She could easily see through your concerns and questions when it came to magic.

It was too bad you never got to see what she was fully capable of.

At least whenever she wasn't putting you through the magical wringer you decided you urgently needed a break for the sake of your own sanity and chose to meet some otherwise exotic groups. Maybe you should have met normal people. Maybe you have frankly grown so comfortable consorting with monsters and undead that it seemed preferable to actual people. Maybe your just sick in the head or too damned odd. It didn't really matter since it was a nice excuse to escape and catch your breath.

Her mother's training regimen was brutal and lengthy. Meant to improve your mana stores and longstanding defenses. Still sucked not to mention how otherwise miserable and painful the lessons could be. Luckily Zixra's connections were far ranging and hard to reach. Meaning you got to enjoy lengthy breaks as you traveled to reach them. Honestly, the hardest part was making sure the undead and monsters didn't try to kill her. That was...tricky. On her end, it was just a lot of traveling.

As giants, as it turned out, had big appetites therefore they didn't like staying in places that were 'low' in biomass. How she ran into giants you have no idea considering the trouble you went to actually meet them. The place they made their home was FULL of gigantic plants and beasts that were so huge that the giants no longer seemed so big anymore. Unsurprisingly this made it extremely dangerous but you did meet giants for the first time.
>>
>>5239711
You did meet the giants she met. They were of the 'smaller' and definitely more vicious variety. As they were nomadic pillagers who traveled and ate everything in their path. Devastating engines of destruction. You can see why she likes them so much. Especially compared to their bigger more chill kin who stick to their giant countryside.

>Discovered Giant Country
>Gained contact with Nomadic Pillager Giants

After that, you traveled back in a bizarre pattern that was done on purpose. Turned out the giants were the farthest away and everyone else was easier to meet. Deep in the wildlands, you meet the Beastfolk. Creatures of half man and half beast. You thought your own people were savage...not anymore. The Beastmen prefer the deeper reaches of the wilds where they survive and compete with the greater beasts and monsters. They are ar a lot more primal and full of savagery. Most of their tribes are also smaller but you see notable exceptions some tribes are the largest you ever heard. Like the Rats and the Crows who were huge in size.

>Discovered Deep Wilds
>Gained Contact Beastmen

Last was the Greenskins. Starting from the smaller goblinoids, the medium sized orcish, big ogres, and the largest Trolls. They were extremely aggressive and fierce. Their savagery could only be challenged by the beastmen but unlike the beastmen the greenskins didn't limit themselves to the deep wilds. Instead, the Greenskins seemed to like harsh places and challenging foes. This meant they often clashed with others which is how you heard of other groups like the Sharp Ears and the Longbeards. People whom you haven't met but at least have now heard about.

>Discovered Badlands
>Contact Greenskins

During the trip, you weren't really expecting to make some friends. Especially with the language barriers and your social awkwardness. Turned out that everyone appreciates being able to see something get blown up with the magic or have fun hunting together. Like Mertuk the Giant who accidentally got you drunk for the first time. Sik Sik the Ratling Mage who showed you how to new application of necromancy via plagues. Not to mention Tarz the Troll punting Skeeb the goblin which resulting in the headbutting and mutual KO with Skar the orc and Ogre Ogi who laughed so hard he needed medical attention. That was fucking hilarious though. Greenskins fight and play rough but damn that was funny.

It eventually ended with you stopping by some decaying leftover ruins from the world being born where you introduced the undead. That was tricky as undead are either sleepy or grumpy assholes even if you know the Dead Tongues and necromancy. No wonder undead are generally hostile to everyone. Especially the undead outsiders who got stuck there and slowly withering away thanks to being severed. Native undead is very hard to find due to being so few in numbers still. Seriously it took a long while to track some down. You did succeed in the end but damn that was time consuming.

The last was the monsters who were easy to find since you knew a location of a nest. What you didn't expect was for Zixra to challenge them to a fight or how long she managed to physically last resisting them. You had to rely upon magic and ran the fuck away you still got your ass kicked. She actually managed to last a surprisingly long time. This probably made them respect her if their newfound willingness to negotiate was anything to go by.

Still, it gave you some time to get to know the monsters without having your ass kicked which was nice. Sure it meant having someone else getting theirs kicked in your place but hey. Thanks to this you were able to chill out with the monsters which were how you were able to find out the nest was a nursery for young and weak monsters. You haven't met any 'grown' monsters yet...meaning you were getting your asses kicked by kids.

You did find out that the swarm that it belonged to was in the process of collapsing. The Swarm Queen in control was dying and the swarm was breaking up. Which had serious ramifications if you wanted to maintain good relations. Luckily by stopping by you were introduced to some other monsters belonging to the same batch and older ones. Although only those from the same batch were very friendly.

>discovered the location of a large Primordial Graveyard of the dead
>Discovered new monster faction Collapsing Swarm(temporary)

If you wish to maintain positive relations with the monsters you will need to advantage of the collapsing swarm to get to know the factions that it is about to breakup into. As the swarm is in a state of collapse.

After finishing up you head back home. A couple of years passed by. A few more then you will enter begin to enter puberty you think.

What do?
>Make some new friends

>Visit the dying monster swarm queen

+1 I'll change to this. I guess we should continue to be the hybrid mage fighter. We've already trained our magic a lot.
>>
>>5239756
>>5239764
You finally get around to training with actual weapons. Stone spears, hammers, and axes. Since they are cheap and easy to replace. Mainly since you do not have to hunt down anything to get the materials to make more. To be frank you are rather...old to begin to finally start practicing but better late than never. Especially if you are unlucky enough to run into something that can resist magic or you out of mana. Good to have backups.

So you visit Baz to train under him who is the strongest warrior.

"Well Well look who finally shows up...so here for physical training I guess?" You figure knowing you avoid weapons training. He will be wrong and besides, you have seen their wimpy ass version of physical training. If you want the real deal you would go with the monsters for that stuff which you intend to do. Monster's physiques are monstrous and not for the weak. It's why despite being a magic user you aren't fragile by any means but...you have been slacking. Yeah, you are gonna need to start catching up on that.

"Nope actually here to train with you." You tell him. He appears shocked in disbelief at first.

"...Really?" He questions not believing you.

"Really." You confirm.

"Really REALLY?" He asks starting to get his hopes up.

...Damn you didn't know refusing to train with him bothered him so much. "Yes really."

"WOOH finally I was afraid you were gonna turn into a pansy ass fairy at this rate," he whoops before grabbing a few weapons. "Well since you are a mage I'll bring up the classic mage weaponry. cudgels, Staves, daggers, and Spears. Basically, smash the shit out of them or stab with something pointy. Personally I myself prefer big hammers and axes, but I'm no slouch with other weapons and you will need to learn how those other weapons are used...against you. You don't have time to familiarize yourself with using them but you will need to learn how to protect yourself against them. When it comes to staff and especially spear training my daughter Zixra is better. She really likes pointy and sharp objects."

Thus began you getting drilled with a few magic oriented weapons and especially how to defend yourself against other warriors. Particularly WITHOUT your magic to help you. Unsurprisingly that last part resulted in you getting your ass kicked. Even when you were fighting other kids and the weaker raiders. As you find out the hard way and very painfully just how dependent you are on magic despite its dangers of it. When you weren't training with weapons over the next few years you were training your body with the monsters.

Sure you put aside your magic training as you approached puberty, but you didn't want to fuck up your adolescence accidentally via magic bullshit and all that working out will do wonders for your growth development as puberty finally hits. You yourself are starting to finally take notice of girls...and the girls are starting to notice you right back. Which your sisters and new family notice.
>>
>>5239811
As you have to go to the monsters for training. You are surprised to discover that Zixra has fallen in love with training with them too. As you stumble upon her there repeatedly and end simply traveling together. Especially since she can help excuse your absences during martial training. You discover that she apparently has paid the monsters for training and entered some kind of agreement with them. Which reminded you of the debt you still owe them and that the monsters are still oddly silent about your repayment.

As a result, you end up joining her for the training sessions and realize yet again just how powerful she is. Unlike yourself who invested in magic. She competes with the monster through sheer martial valor and physical might. Wrestling and beating them. Much to your slowly growing horror...after a while she starts to win. Slowly but surely she lasts longer and longer before slowly winning more and more. You comfort yourself with the fact that she is both older and has a lot more combat experience than you. Yet she is still displeased with herself and left wanting more...probably because these monsters are the 'weak and young'. She no doubt intends to find the older and stronger ones next.

Your own clashes with the monsters and their idea of training. Are you getting beaten, tortured, and desperately dodging/running away. Before they used their twisted healing magic to put you back together again for another session over and over again. It was brutal, cruel, and agonizing but you have seen the results with your own eyes. Without this torture, you never would have stood a chance against the Hydra even with your magic. As this training makes you tough and agile enough to take hits. Something that you have heard from even the Old Man, Baz, and Sivath is very rare to see among mages. Apparently, they are normally a fragile bunch.

You are not fragile and you intend to keep it that way.

During your regular training sessions with the monsters. You choose to make time to visit the monster swarm queen whom you knew had a direct hand in your own making. Making her the closest thing to a real mother you have besides the one who adopted you Sivath. She as it turned out had also greatly withered since you last seen her with your experience in necromancer and previous experiences with the reaper...you can see her death approaching.
>>
>>5239817
"Well well I didn't expect to see you ever again," hisses the monster. "I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised given your...choices in life come to think of it. You...take after me too much I'm afraid."

"...I had some questions. You were always watching and protecting me from the shadows, weren't you? Even during the Hydra?"

"...Yes."

"It wasn't due to the promise from my father was it?"

"No. He merely wanted me to stop hiding. I didn't want to...interfere with your choices in life and your attempts to mingle with the rest of mankind...turned out he was right I was wrong."

"So honest...that is an odd way to display your maternal affection isn't it?"

She wheezes and hisses which you eventually realize is laughter. "Our love is not the same love as men. Tell me is all that you wanted is to rub it in?"

"No...I just wanted to hear the truth about you and him. Along with what else of before this world's birth you know."

"Oh of course you do. Fine...come with me," she takes you on a quiet walk and despite the years that have gone by you recognize the paths. It was the exact same path the old man used to take you on all the time when she paused before a small spring forming a pond and a strange looking tree. "This...this was where we met after the wars. He was dying and an old enemy I could have easily killed him. We...were old enemies you see...but I didn't. Instead, I saved his life and I levered that debt for one last try that could save us both. Sadly we failed. I didn't know why at the time but I do now."

"...Did you actually love him?" You couldn't help but ask. She was silent for a while pondering on it.

"Enemies we were in life. Lovers in death we shall be." Was her only answer. "Maybe the next life we won't be born on opposite sides. Him a spirit of the souls springs and me of the flesh tides. Our homeworlds are both dead now and soon I will rejoin them...I guess you also want to see the death of my underworld? I'm afraid you won't be able to. I am not the last one alive still. One of the last only."

"You were on different sides?"

"My side was that of...meatspace he was of spiritual realms. A difference in existence and philosophy made us great enemies. The war was old even in our homeworlds and it spanned many realms. For some reason, I do not understand the left his own side near the end. Protected the new life and tried to find a middle ground. It's why I found him betrayed and dying right here...yet I did not end him did I? Instead I spent my dwindling life spark to make one last spawning hoping that together we could find the key. Sadly we were suppressed by this new world and failed. Killed by the very thing we were trying to protect."

"...Yet you do not hate it for considering how you both fought to protect it no?"

"No...despite how it denied us it did not deny our progeny. It instead gave them another chance. While it is true I did not expect you to survive...you weren't the only attempt."
>>
>>5239837
"You were an attempt to see if the old man was right with his considerations. Alas, that avenue was also proven to be an abject failure...you take too much after me."

"...What?"

"Really must I explain it? You ignore your fellow man. Sticking to the fringes and instead of interacting with the other. Obsessing over your magic yes but just look at the closest thing to the company you keep. In my folly, I rejected you in the hope you would embrace humanity...I now realize I was wrong to do that...my Son. For it is not Humanity that you Embraced now was it?"

"..." You didn't need to answer as the disheartened monster queen lowered itself and gazed into the spring.

"...I had originally separated you from me...from us in the hope that you would live better among them. As you appeared to take far more after them than us. Hmm, I underestimated your power of Will. You chose very differently...but I'm glad you at least found yourself a new family of rejects who would accept you and even love you. Maybe Baz caught onto the fact that you are similar birds of a feather hence his interest in adopting you."

"I wouldn't think they cared that much for me. Well except for the one girl who wants to fuck me when I am older probably."

"In that you are wrong. Baz is...well he never got along with his own kind very well even back then and he was strong enough to get away with it. Very tough. Very hard to fight. I still ache at the memory of our previous fights. As for that Sivath...actually, I think she likes you the most since she appreciates a fellow connoisseur of the dark arts. Especially one with similar terrible tastes in people and friends."

"If you knew would you have done things differently then?"

"...Honestly I don't think I would know what to do with you. You wouldn't fit in with my kind and neither would you fit in with mankind. Even now...I am unsure. In a few more years you will be of breeding age and considering your feats and resources the females are going to be all over you. Monsters included. However, that will change for your own descendants. The monster blood will weaken and they may get along better with the rest of mankind."

"So...since you have acknowledged me as your son does that mean I have any siblings from you dear mother?" You couldn't help but prod.

She cackles in that strange alien hissing sound. "It's...a bit complicated. Monster familial relations are not very close, especially in swarms. You can thank our weird magic for that. In terms of siblings, there are those from my final spawning who can...in a matter of speaking be considered 'family' to you except you don't really have anything in common. I have older children and other relatives but well they won't see you as kin. My older children may put up with you but only because you have interacted with me and their younger kin. If I had produced more humanoids or shifters that may have been different."
>>
>>5239847
"...Do I even want to know how that works?"

"Heh not really know. Once the gods grow stronger and mages more knowledgeable younglings like you will soon figure it out. We are just naturals at it."

"...I have had shit luck in terms of family haven't I." You blandly state the obvious.

"...I wish I could comfort you but so little is known about primordial times I wouldn't even know where to begin. I falsely assumed you would be like the other humanoids I knew about but I was wrong. For kin among my own...I can introduce them to you and you can aid them. Help support each other. It will take a while for monsters to finish recuperating but you can help speed it up soon enough."

"So...what should I do when it comes to monsters and what do else do you have to share?"

"For monsters, it's possible to befriend a few neighboring monster factions the rest will likely remain hostile. That friendship will not be free. The greatest thing to remember is monsters are foremost predators and sometimes parasitic what is the most important thing to determine is if you are vital prey to them or not. That tells you if they will ever avoid you, ignore you, or forever stay hostile. There are many kinds of monsters after all but not all of them need prey upon Men."

"As for what else I have to share...like your father I too have some knowledge of the other realms. This world is a newborn but someday the way to those other realms will open forth and you will need to be ready that day to defend this world and venture forth. You will also need to find the things guarding the barrier between this realm and other realms. You cannot let harm befall those things no matter the cost. Also, it's time to introduce you to some other family members."

"...Wait what?"

"Soon I will be gone. Luckily there is a doting big sister here for you who will take over this nest. There are also some other sisters and brothers. Not to mention some more...friendly monsters who may be interested in you. To be honest many here can be considered kin but they are not...elite or worthy. So it's just them you should be concerned with."

"...Didn't you just warn me about that?"

"I'm still around so it's fine and you have things to offer them. Don't be afraid to do whatever you can. Just don't let those other manlings find out and maybe consider letting your descendants choose differently."

You pause when you notice some of the monster girls whom you sort of recognize.

"...Matchmaking seriously?"

"Trading technically. If you were to be matched with a monster they would at LEAST to be a Matriarch or Lord tier. Not trash like that. Hmph."

"...Wait were actually serious about the whole sex pay?"

"Oh, you have no idea. Some monsters cannot reproduce on their own and need...help but that is a worry for when you are older."

"That is only in a few more years."

"If it makes you feel any better it's very profitable and a great way to make allies."

"..."

"Fine fine I'll stop."

In between training sessions. You visit the dying monster queen and learn of other realms. While it's not an immediate problem she warns you there are those who wish to weaken the barriers that separate this world from others and you must defend those barriers at all costs. You find out about the location of the world tree which helps protect this world and other key spots that harbor defenses that shield this world. In addition to find out other knowledge as well her own specialty you noticed was very different from the old man. Her magics was much more savage, primal, and natural. Which she did tell you a bit about. Along with the natural forces of this world and the greatest dangers you can face.

Undead.
Monsters.
Outsiders.
Harbingers.
Oldest Ones.

To most peoples, they are such powerful forces that will destroy them over and over again. Scattering them and forcing them to rebuild. For now, the world is shielded. Many forces are crippled. Unable to intercede or recuperate. Thus not at all active. That will one day change she warns you. During one of your visits, she gives you an item to give to your adoptive parents. Stating that it will speed up their recovery because a danger draws near and without it, they may perish while trying to push it back. In addition, she gives you a choice of a few treasures you may choose but you may take only 1.

Choose 1
>Carapace of a Juggernaut Monster King
>Domain of monsterkind via a lair made for you
>Relic Effigy of the Mother of Monsters
>A claw of a Dreadnought Monster King
>The pulsating egg containing a Broodmother
>Other?

What do? Multiples may be taken at a smaller bonus.
>Make some new friends

Oh shit, I forgot to include another achievement.

Monster Mommy.

I really didn't think you would stumble upon that one. You had to avoid your fellow man like the plague and align yourself with normally mankind hostile factions. It's a very tough one to get.

Your previous achievement was a Child Solo Hunt for adulthood with a captured Hydra modifier.

>>5239908
You can it would be in >Other or if something happens IC that makes the MC think about it. Those sort of things are always a >Other options. Other options are the key to exploits. Like how you discovered new locations and factions along with getting to know the things there. You can spend a >other action to specifically target and interact with them which can lead to some very good things.

>>5239901
That will become an option next turn since you will hit puberty and gain certain options to interact with monsters. To be more accurate it's Monster Stud since Monster Breeder has prereqs you haven't gotten yet.

If you want to breed monsters you got a long way to go cause that shit is extremely hard. It's way above both animal husbandry and beast taming in terms of difficulty.

With puberty impending you decide to finally make some friends. Only all the other tribals are either losers, kiss asses, or want your dick. This makes you consider what the monster mother pointed out...and you realize it hit home hard. There really aren't very many worthwhile...people to interact with. Especially for those who won't turn on you for your close interactions with the undead and monsters. Which REALLY limits things.

Luckily your new family is...also an outlier with the tastes and company they keep. In addition the orphan family you originally hailed from. On top of the connections that Zixra pointed out to you. So you actually DID have some options. Just not really any normal ones. Like at all.

Choose 3(you may pick the same option repeatedly)
>Greenskin
>Beastman
>Giant
>Monster
>Undead
>Outcast
>?????

In addition to finally making some actual friends for the first time in your life. You got back to active magic practice with the new unusual insights you got from those visits before. This time you were tested on being able to cast while using a weapon and the limits of your physique with the spellcasting. Resulting in you discovering a potential synergy(Magic Enhancement) to investigate to further enhance yourself or your equipment. It will be tricky to do so without harming yourself and healing is rare outside the monsters and their methods hurt like hell. At least you weren't being used for spell target practice like last time the entire time.

In addition to studying up on your spells. This gave you the chance to pass on the medicine you were given to your teacher/adoptive mother who was shocked since medicines are very rare due to a lack of knowledge and skill to make them. As a result their recovery quickly sped up right in the time since the dangers the Monster Queen forewarned you about gave you time to investigate things for yourself when you weren't training or making friends.

To be more specific you delegated since that is what allies...friends...erhm minions are for. The dead. The spirits. The local monsters. You asked them all about it and to investigate. For a long while, they didn't have anything until one day you got results. An answer that barely gave you time to head over to see for yourself since you knew your adoptive parents would also know and intervene. You wanted to see for yourself just how strong they truly are and how dangerous the threat was.

Despite having a huge headstart and determining where the danger was you waited. You didn't see what it was at first but heard it first. As the spirits. Ghosts went silent. You have never once experienced that. Later the animals, insects, and even plants stopped. The wind became still and even mana was sluggish much to your horror. You couldn't even imagine what could do that.

Yet somehow it still took time for whatever it was to appear. In fact, you didn't even realize what it was because it was so obvious and eventually you realized it. The Sun had seemingly stopped moving until it wasn't. Suddenly there were two suns in the sky and you eventually realized one of them wasn't a sun at all. It was something else and it was coming closer. The pace was very hurried and it was utterly blinding. Its path and trace were obvious given how everything around it reacted to its passing.

You realized you were insanely over your head with whatever insanely powerful abomination that thing was. You always were curious just how insane those struggles for survival and fighting were back during the birthing of the world...apparently, your curiosity may very well prove to be your doom. Since you cause a brief blur of two figures zipping past and charging at the figure. One roared in a voice you instantly recognized.

Baz leaped into the air swinging his ax down at the second sun. Splitting it in half and revealing what it truly was. A divine radiance bloomed forth and made you kneel down. Sweating for daring to defile to gaze upon it... a deity. A godling. Before the Godling could recover the second figure lashed out as darkness seemed out from below and formed a vortex. Caught between the Vortex below and Baz above the godling came crashing down as it reacted. With flares of light and fire shredding, igniting, vaporizing, and melting everything in its path. Instantly the previous mountain was turned into a valley and scorched of everything on it.

Yet the fighting didn't stop. Powerful spells you have never seen came pouring out of the second figure who kept flashing to dodge and what couldn't be flashed to avoided was blocked by inky black shields or shrieking maelstroms of damned agony. In between flashes, you noticed the figure had a tail, wings, and horns yet it was someone you knew nonetheless. Shifter?

The Godling bellowed and his power erupted throwing Baz back who was wounded but not even panting or out of breath. Yet somehow it completely unfazed him as the resistance and damage he took only made him strike harder and harder. Fight fiercer and fiercer. His toughness somehow improved with his injuries, especially as some weird inky and bloody spells echoed around him and began to sap the life from around him to recover his wounds and shield him. Yet the Godlings wounds were either nonexistent or healed before your very eyes. Flashes of light somehow blocking the attacks or what few attacks did get through were rapidly healed.

Despite being outnumbered two to one the Godling seemed to be holding his own quite well. You don't know if the two could handle it when suddenly she began to cackle madly as a weird blistering red, purple, and black pool formed midair. Its very existence seemed to be an affront to the deity considering how abruptly completely ignored Baz to throwing everything he had.

>>5239950
You could understand why when from this distance you could hear the wailing of damned and tortured souls seeming trapped and being sucked inside. Even worse when the pool began to ripple as 'something' started to try and reach outward. Which further alarmed the god even more.

Turned out to be a big mistake to ignore Baz who tossed away his broken ax and grabbed a new one that was being swung towards him from midair by her via hair. Apparently, they brought a large bag of spares you just noticed. Despite not moving Baz swung his ax and you could feel the BOOM before you could hear it. The previous split in the mountain was cut yet again from his blow that sent the god flying his blood spraying in the hair. His ax didn't survive but he already grabbed a replacement hammer from the hair as he leaped over to swing down yet again. A direct hit that completely crumbled the mountain and left a crater.

...hm so that is where all those lakes came from.

There was no way the godling could survive that right yet you noticed the spell was still forming and you knew that meant it somehow still wasn't dead. Sure enough, another boom and beam of light sent Baz flying into sky high in the air that sent him flying. The godling floated out of the crater his robes in tatters and he looked very angry. Right in time to get a face full of the torrent that erupted from the rippling pool that opened up to reveal another space and out came an outpouring of some kind of terrible waterlike substance that was so terrible for the first time you heard the god scream in overwhelming agony.

Its counterattack was a supernova that exploded attempting to drive her back. Instead, it merely blinded you all and she just vanished. This confused even the god in question who for the first time his wounds were failing to heal. Whatever that stuff was proving to be too much even for it. The next thing that happened was four things. The good attempted to treat its wounds. The pond had turned into a gateway and she was pulling the door open. A flying meteor that was Baz coming directly at the God. Something erupted from below.

Now anyone else would have GTFO the way. Alas, this was a godling. He stood his ground. The gate opened. Baz slammed into the God grappling it. What came from below unleashed a shriek that screamed in all your minds at once as a flicker of deathly miasma suddenly exploded from it.

DIE GODLING I WILL TAKE YOU WITH ME TO THE GREAT DEATH LET US SEE WHO IS STRONGER. THE REAPER CALLING FOR ME OR YOUR CLAIMS OF DIVINITY! YOU WILL PAY FOR TAKING HIM FROM ME AND THREATENING WHAT IS MINE.
>>
>>5239974
You didn't get to see what happened next as a storm of unknown energy you never felt before erupted. However, above it, you saw a familiar figure...a monstrous swarm Queen. instinctively you realized she was channeling a forbidden art. One to be used when one was at death's door and when there was no life left in the body to weaken its power. Except compared to the dying frail and withered figure. This one was billowing with power, hearty, and majesty.

When the storm cleared up. You could see the gateway had turned into a baleful eye glaring down at the deity. Baz was chasing the deity who had closed in Sivath who caught his attack with her bare hands and winced as you remembered the time you also mistook that for being her weakness. The Deity was now caught right between them as they both attacked at once and used perfect teamwork in melee to suppress the godling.

You were wondering when where the monster was when a pulse shot out from the head of the Godling and he completely froze as if braindead. As the earth trembled at first you thought it was her until in the distance you saw an encroaching army. That was when you realized what happened.

The Godling knew it couldn't face all three on its own so it called for reinforcements. Realizing things will turn against them the monster Queen reveals herself to join their attack on the stunned godling but his defenses were too strong despite all three using forbidden methods to severely wounded the godling who retreated to his army as he finally proceeds to talk for the first time to taunt them.

"HAH what a joke. A monster. A demon. A traitor. All joining hands to stop the righteous from saving lost souls and purging evil. Too bad unlike your kind we have friends and know how to work together without backstabbing.[/red]

"MORE KILLING MORE BLOODSHED," roars Baz who has clearly gone berserk.

"Ah the hubris of gods, I adore you fucking idiots thinking you can break the accords and I cannot waste to enjoy the taste of your divine soul," purrs Sivathexaz who points up at the Eye with a single finger who grinned transforming into a mouth that opened and spewed forth another army.

The sacred army slammed into the army of fiends that came pouring out of the mouth. The grounding rumbled so much that they failed to realize what came from below until it was too late as a swarm of monsters erupted below. Flanking the army. With a chittering Monster Queen helming them that held up a peculiar and strangely familiar looking soul gem before cackling.

Remember this? What you were wanting all along? I swore I was going to take you with me you fucking godling and don't think you can escape me. Betrayed a man who met for peace and wanted to pass on his knowledge to entreat with you people. Let me show you wretches what a REAL monster is like.
>>
>>5239984
The godling turned around and ran away. Utter terror for the first time broke out on his face as the monster queen form began to ripple, crackle, and break down. As the soul gem shattered. The two energies were forcefully being fused together and on the verge of erupting but right before they could explode a pulse came from her head to forcefully suppress and control the process.

Then it was unleashed. A spiraling crackling lance that homed in the godling no matter what it did desperately trying to dodge and throwing whatever it could at behind it to slow and weaken it. All failed for the lance pierced through the godling and at first nothing happened until the godling's divinity rapidly began to suddenly fluctuate and the Godling screamed as its divinity was shaken, weakened, drained, and stolen.

Seeing their master flee the holy army also attempted to retreat despite the dangers and instead ran into another ambush. As the forces that Baz brought along finally revealed themselves and blocked the fleeing army halting them. Just like that both the army and its leader realized there was no escape for them. They were all going to die here.

Realizing that fact they stopped caring and threw everything they had to kill as many as possible. Unfortunately for them the monsters they fought were old, worn out, dying veterans and loyal elites who intended to die with their queen. They cared not and flung themselves forward just like their Queen did who embraced the maddened Godling who attempted to self destruct in order to take down those who dared to defy it. Instead, he got swallowed by a monster queen before they both exploded together and the other two whom he wished to kill escaped and enjoyed slaughtering his army instead.

Just like that you finally caught a glimpse into the insanity and power of those early battles and struggles for survival. Just like that, you discovered a-

>Primordial Battlefield Fresh
>Gained Fragment of Divinity

The long walk home wasn't as bad as you thought it would have been. Mainly due to being deep in thought and shocked it didn't feel nearly as long. You processed what you have seen...and knew deep down you were a weakling still compared to that. Yet one day perhaps you too would be as strong.

Given the number of votes visit the graves and ties for undead friend option I'll give another undead friend for free giving you 4 friends total considering the votes. Make things easy that way considering how long its been.

>>5240139
Technically not required you just know about it. If you do nothing things will speed up. If you help you will buy moar time to grow stronger.

>>5240149
That is currently due to the current MC's choices and specialization. Once you have kids your options will branch out a lot more. Basically every MC has their specialty that gives them unique options and abilities. The downside is once the MC perishes you also lose out all on it unless you groomed a replacement lined up.

As for having lots of kids...that will soon be brought up given your choices the MC is not as well equipped to handle it as it would appear. Magical bloodlines have high attrition on top of the high attrition rate of this time period. The MC is also antisocial so...yeah. Not easy to spam babies with him in this generation. That can be fixed in the next generation though.
>>
As usual, you practice magic except for this time you get a new idea mainly cause of some new friends you made and your interest in visiting some graves. From what you know the remaining graves of newborn world are being mended and healed finishing off the outsider undead remnants leaving only the primordial undead ones who are the fewest in number. So you intend to visit them before it's too late since you are old enough to be taken a bit more seriously now and can actually visit some of those old sites. Ruins from the dead worlds that were destroyed to make a new one along with a few broken remnants. While there are still plenty to find.

That is how you made a new friend and got some new ideas to practice your magic. The dead are tireless and they know tricks from other realms. Which was a great chance to perfect your magic in ways you never really had a chance to test previously. Enabling you to make a lot of progress. Entreating with the undead also gave you more insights into the other realms and many lost secrets and hidden places. With the deaths of two figures who outlived those times, you were wondering how to find more about it now you do. You just need to talk to the dead. As they do not forget.

Friends List
Dragon Sozythmerbraxis a young dragon you unexpectedly stumbled upon and who also had an interest in history which you both shared.
Spirit of Darkness Drazthos while working on your magic and contacting a few spirits you heard of a spirit that might interest you which is how you encountered Drazthos in a forsaken cave.
Undead Lor is unexpectedly one of the very first lifeforms to ever arise and one of the first to embrace undeath. Has been hanging around ever since when you met it.
Outcast Rejos honestly you weren't expecting to make a 'normal' friend at all but turns out you aren't the only one with...peculiar tastes. Rejos is a shady bugger through in through but also a fellow reject.

In addition, you hashed out how you were going to repay the monsters which came down to food. Fortunately, monsters are not a picky bunch and you got a hydra. Yet they also wanted mating rights which you decided to accept figuring it would be a good way to pay it off faster and a good lead to further things. What you didn't expect was how Zixra would react when she realized what she was missing out on besides fighting and training.

Now the most important thing of all...courtship. You were of the age that it was time to consider establishing a family and how to do so. Unsurprisingly really Zixra remembered her promise on teaching you about females. Unexpectedly though was how incredibly desperate she was and how fast she zeroed in on the fact that you became interested in girls and approached puberty even before you figured out whether or not you actually entered it. It was honestly rather impressive and alarming. you have no idea how fucking thirsty and frustrated she was having to wait all those years for this.
>>
>>5240487
She ran out of patience ages ago but had no choice. At first, you figured it would be some of other your sisters or adoptive parents who would explain things but when you heard about their idea of 'courtship'(see beat the shit of each other and sex) you changed your mind. Sylvia did have a reason for agreeing to let Zixra help handle your...education. Despite their disagreements when it came to courtship matters and methods.

So while Zixra took a rather... hands on approach to your education with females. She did a lot of explaining. Even if she did become a lot more handsy and blatant about what she was after and interested in as she was 'very' unwilling to let the monsters have you to themselves only. Beyond that though she wasn't actually possessive or anything at all strangely enough.

"When it comes to taking women there are certain considerations you must keep in mind. Yes, you can afford many women but should you? I know you are considering it but let me give you a blunt warning about this and no my personal feelings have nothing to do with it. The many women you can take are likely of...subpar quality hence why they are so willing. Next, you have to consider the infighting that will arise from them and their progeny as they compete with each other. Let me be frank when I say that you are too...disinterested in people to ever really develop the interpersonal skills to readily deal with their bullshit," she explains in her bed one time after some more hands on lessons.

"You are saying I can't handle it then?"

"No, I'm saying even if you could it wouldn't be worth it in the way you are thinking. Don't fucking marry them. Don't even make them your concubines. Treat them like the worthless sex slaves that they are. Don't bother giving them any special status, privileges, or rights. The only thing that matters is the offspring and if they give you the tiniest excuse get rid of them. It's not worth investing or treating such worthless females with much consideration at all."

"...I doubt my children would appreciate their mother's being treated like that."

"That is why you have leverage," she smiles sinisterly. "If you wish to adopt such an approach it's a matter of quantity. Who gives a shit about the rest? The losses will be high and subpar anyway. It's not like you intend to settle down with a homely woman and have a nice family hm? You already fucked that up with the hydra incident and don't get me started with your terrible tastes in friends and soon to be pussy at this rate."

"...Did you really just demean yourself like that?"

"Oh, honey don't kid yourself. You sold pimped yourself out to the monsters even before I could get my hands on you. I count myself lucky I at least tasted you first. I mean please tell me how many 'normal' girls are you actually considering courting?"

"..."

"I thought so. Now your other option instead of the quantity approach is quality," she continues throwing the furs off to show herself off.
>>
>>5240501
"This is a very different approach but one that has risks you would not think of. Yet compared to the other the gains are much better. Like women who are actually useful and come with good things. Potential partnerships and the like...except it is also very dangerous."

"Dangerous?"

"Well of course. Think about it if she wants your seed all she needs to do is beat you up and take it, but if you want a baby? Not only do you have to beat her you have to hold her hostage until she gives birth. It a more risky, dangerous, and worst of all time consuming. Now isn't that a pain in the ass? With quality females, it's far too easy to lose the quality offspring since she can simply take them away and she may very well be too powerful to be stopped."

"...Starting to sound like I'm fucked."

"Not quite. You see that is strictly in terms of 'breeding'. However, for quality why would you throw away what else the other can potentially offer you? Your particular issue is yet again how...antisocial you are. As that requires actually negotiating with the other party and trying to win them over. We both know you are too much of a training obsessed freak to care much about the need to socialize."

"I so am fucked."

She stares at you dimly before pointing at herself. "That is what partnerships are for you moron. You joined my family. You didn't have to worry about such tedious things as protecting your precious wealth or securing your hydra from would-be thieves now did you? Now it IS true that you will be at a disadvantage when it comes to other females especially if they target you to rape you and believe me that is going to happen. Finding quality males is a pain in the ass... I of all people would know. I waited for fucking years for you to grow up."

"What's your angle then and what are my actual options?"

"It's simple my angle is that I want us to form a true family. I will bear some of your children. As for your options, it is true that you will have the disadvantage of negotiating but that simply means you have to concede on a few things in the hope that they will share some offspring with you and not keep them all to themselves. Along with whatever other terms you can arrange for."

"...So pimp myself out to more than just monsters."

"NOW you are getting it," she cackles. "Really though it's a matter of how much risk you wish to take and how much time you wish to waste on it. We both know you would prefer doing other things rather than having to manage so many tasks that would get in the way of your training isn't that right?"

"but that is what you and your family are for." You grudgingly note.

"Bingo," she smiles clapping her hands together. "See now you get it. Yet you want more don't you?"

"...there is one angle you are forgetting."

"Oh, what is that?"

"What if they are as inhuman as monsters?"

That finally stumped her as she went silent for a while to think about it.

"...You intend to court other 'things' as well?"

"Duh."
>>
>>5240521
"...Well I won't lie that certainly changes the dynamic," she grudgingly admits.

"What differences to it would it make though?"

"Well, it depends on the species really. Monsters for example tend to be extremely domineering. At least with your own kind, you can fight for dominance but a monster? Fat chance. You are gonna be her submissive boy toy. While other species can be strictly monogamous or very fond of 'free love' so good luck trying to confirm your progeny and not getting cuckolded."

"yes but it WOULD be easier on me wouldn't it?"

"...Ugh probably yeah but it's a gamble. At least with high quality females, you can get results if you are willing to take a few more losses and concede on more things."

"Yet the infighting and squabbles apply even to them right?"

"Pfft only if your stupid enough to be one of those crazy fuckers who want a private harem of powerful women. See how long those idiots last. I mean it's doable if they're weak but if they're strong? HAH, good luck."

"So they are the female angle them if they're strong?"

"Depends on if they want to gamble on variety or invest. Variety seekers are the sluttiest rapists. They go around and hope their progeny gets lucky. An investor will find higher quality males to pin down and secure multiple offspring to play the odds in their favor."

"I think I'm gonna check with my other sister."

"Ugh her and her romanticism. Good luck with that."

----
"Ah you wish to know about courting and I guess Zixra tried to traumatize you with brutal methods right?"

"You know it but I'm curious sister do you think it's possible to have a loving relationship with...something else like a monster?"

"Of course. Love can transcend all bonds. I'm not trying to say Zixra is...entirely wrong but she has a very skewed perception of matters. To her, she doesn't care about feelings because she can simply beat them and rape them so who cares? It's all for her own pleasure and gain. The strong take and so forth. To be honest that woman doesn't have a single romantic bone in her body which is kinda funny given her feelings for you."

"..."

"Don't believe me? Makes sense she doesn't realize herself because she is too fucking horny and sexually frustrated for years on end. It will be a few years for it to clear up and she finally realizes it's not just her wanting to fuck you. Anyway as you know we live in a world of Magic. Of pacts. Love has very real POWER. Of course, you could just fuck and impregnate any random woman but...that aspect would be entirely missing. That opportunity was forever lost."

"Now you lost me. There is a point to it? A gain to it?"

"Besides a more positive familial environment to raise children? Of course, there is you fool. Do you wish to transcend the challenges of love across the gap of adversity? Do you want the blessing of Love to be a boon to your offspring? It will provide benefits and help ease problems."
>>
>>5240558
"How is that better than making lots of babies from lots of women exactly?"

"...Did it ever occur to you that there is a REASON why those strictly monogamous species are able to compete with the ones who try to drown them in numbers, little brother? They often don't even have many children either but they love each other and care deeply for their offspring."

"...I see your point."

"No, you don't. You feel...panicked because you have no other family. No assurances in case something happens to you to pass on your bloodline. So you feel the urge to spread your seed far and wide. You do not feel safe enough to 'love' anyone like that do you?"

"..."

"I'll just beg this of you little brother. All I ask is to allow your own descendants to find love if they are able. I know you will no doubt be tempted to 'arrange' things for them but will it really be so harmful to give them the chance to love?"

"Considering it can lead to disaster why take the risk?"

"It can also lead to miracles. You want to court things that are not very...human yes and that is why you came to me? Hoping that maybe I could help? Well, there are different kinds of love, attachments, feelings, and romanticism. That is something you will need to keep in mind should you pursue that route. Even if you try to keep it business like and limit things strictly to reproduction and whatever other terms are hashed out.

-----
Due to multi action your first round of courtship selection is not very good. Further penalties were added due to lack of interactions with other groups and lack of charisma. Special bonuses and options are provided due to past choices and interactions not normally available. This is ONLY the first round, however. You still have plenty of time to find something better. Like actually interacting with other groups and socializing to get in order to improve possible options or limiting the number of actions taken to get a larger bonus.

Due to a lack of data from lineages and testing. Info relating to breeding stats is limited but that will change gradually. Of course not including any wealth, power, connections, ect the personal may also bring with them.

For the sake of my own sanity courtship options will remain open for a number of years. Courtship options may be increased. Right now most picks aren't very good but this is just to start. You may interact with courtship picks before choosing to get an idea if you want them or not.

What do? Multiples may be taken at a smaller bonus.

Courting Zixrathmorath and spooky orphaned girl Strauvana

You thought whom you should court first all things considered. You figured you might as well ease yourself into it and stick with what is most familiar. In this case, there are actually two girls whom come to mind. You thought of a few more admittedly but there is something special about Strauvana and it totally has nothing to do with the fact that the dead spoke nothing but good things about her which is a first. You even went way back having grown up together and raised by the old man together. Some might even say you were childhood friends and honestly considering how scary she was as a little girl you doubt she had many options either. At least you could rely upon blatant bribery if it came down to it.

Of course, there was also the girl was who hounding you Zixra whom you decided to reply in kind with her courting. Well more like woman only Strauvana is closer to your own age. Zixra is much older. As embarrassing as it is to say you don't know her nearly as well you should. Probably because you never went out raiding together or even hunting really. You only see each other at home or the few years you went training with the monsters, but when you stopped you only saw her at home if she was around.

Reconnecting with Strauvana especially when you found out how much you had in common and how much she had grown since you were taken in. Strauvana if it wasn't very her sickly health would have been a real beauty that was holding her back. Despite that fact she unexpectedly managed to acquire magic of her own AND learned to fight. She was even surprisingly sneaky at that. An all arounder whose only weakness is her body. You did your best to make a move on her and were promptly shut down hard by the undead who were her escorts. Seriously they were terrible about blocking the two of you even from trying to kiss or even just hold hands. Beyond that with her morbid but delightful taste in dating locations and it went great.

...then again that probably just means you two have equally disturbing tastes. It was fun having someone to visit with the undead and their forsaken places of dwelling.

Strauvana as it turned out awakened an death aligned constitution making the dead very friendly to her and other effects. They were the ones who took her under their wing and proceeded to teach her. Hence her remarkable skill in both martial and magic. Thanks to you backing the orphans this was something that she was easily able to focus on. She spent time visiting and exploring the resting places of the dead. Strauvana unlike yourself specializes in Necromancy, Dark, Enchantment, and Shadow Magic.

Unfortunately due to being an orphan Strauvana is poor, lacking in connections, and doesn't have much else to offer but herself.
>>
>>5240814
Now some may not be pleased with you 'two timing' two different girls. Fortunately for you, Zixra explicitly doesn't care and Strauvana isn't picky. Spending time with Zixra for the first time ever resulted in her taking a break from raiding. You never saw that coming and went to show how actually serious she was about this. Everyone was shocked...although her parents kept on shooting you knowing glances and winks. Along with some advice.

Baz told you his daughter loved to share whatever that was supposed to mean. While her mother Sivath stated you should take advantage of the immoral, taboo, and wrong with her daughter. You didn't quite know where to go with that until it hit you. Had the perfect idea to test her. You invited her to tag along when you went to 'pay off' some of your debt with the monsters via mating.

What you didn't expect was how much she fucking loved it. Throw in the naughty aspect of 'seducing her younger brother' and robbing the cradle. You realized her mother had a point and she had some messed up tastes. All you had to do was figure out what her Dad was hinting about but as you got to know her better who realized what that was. During raiding they would pillage and ravage anyone who got in her way. She had a very sadistic streak and would happily rape and pass her conquests around, but it wasn't 'just' limited to that. What she liked was sharing and she wasn't picky. She was quite the prolific slaver and loved to have a 'taste'. Just like her parents.

However, it was this precise that fact made her so...supportive of who you are and your interests in groups who are otherwise hostile to humanity. While together she told you an interesting quirk of her physiology as you thought she was sterile from her many raids and lack of progeny. Bitch should have gotten knocked up. A trait of Black Blood is fertility is only possible with a long term lover. As your lover needs to build up a resistance. She herself didn't know this until her father explained and thought she had fertility problems too.
>>
>>5240833
It was her idea to visit some hot springs to soak and enjoy. Naked. All three of you. Zixra openly goggling and feeling you two up. You blame the fact that she found out about the undead getting in the way and thus came up with an 'idea' for you to be 'alone' with Strauvana that just happened to allow her to enjoy a show. Even if she was nice enough at times to give you both some privacy. Strauvana surprisingly handled it very well...then again Zixra was far more interested in you than her.

"Say Zixra...I have been thinking was that why you were waiting for so long and didn't bother hunting down other men was due to your black blood?" You ask to distract her as her hands were getting a bit too close to comfort. It did make her pause.

"...Let's just say I ran into the same problem as you men and didn't have the luxury of a hit and run. Drove me nuts when I realized I would be forced to...invest in my relationships for the long term," she finally huffed out and moved away from you soaking in the hot spring. "Now onto a serious topic of discussion what are our ambitions and dreams hm. We all know what we each have to offer but what is it that we desire to work towards?"

You are still thinking about that but you do know one thing for certain. You need a family and progeny. As for other ambitions...you are still young and haven't figured it out yet. "I aim to have a large family. As for my other goals I have yet to figure out what else I aim to accomplish."

Strauvana speaks tries to hide away but gets caught by Zixra who grabs and holds her until she talks. Giving you quite an eyeful. Two fruits one overly ripe and the other ripening...bound tightly together. "Fine. Fine...I want to help the dead. They were so kind and helpful to me for as long as I remember but are despised by people. I know they will support me no matter what."

"Hm...I guess it's my turn then," states Zixra whose hands you noticed haven't released poor Strauvana and instead seemed to be groping her while adjusting their posture in such a way you could see everything. "My ambitions are simple. I grow tired and bored in this place of safety, full of weaklings, and tedium. I want to establish my own tribe and go someplace more challenging."

You give Zixra a look for what she was doing to the dying Strauvana and she instead of letting her go tosses her at you. Resulting in a splash, a shaking Strauvana clinging onto you, and a laughing Zixra who speaks once more. "Seems like you might be in some trouble. Our goals while not entirely opposing are also not perfectly aligned."

"...Was that really necessary?" You ask her doing your best to keep your gaze on Zixra's naked form.

"Oh please you can thank me later you finally made some progress." She chortles.

...this was going to be a long hot spring trip.
>>
>>5240864
Later that night Zixra was questioning you once more.

"So let me get this straight. I went this all this trouble to get you a chance with your childhood friend and...nothing happened?" Confirms Zixra laying beside you examining your naked body in disbelief.

"Nope," you admit. "You know Zixra not everyone is as horny as some people and besides I'm not about to risk impregnating her so early on."

"...I went through ALL that trouble and it turns out I made more progress fucking your childhood friend than you did. That is just sad."

"...That is because you can fuck her other women and not worry about pregnancy you bitch," you roar slapping her ass.

"Exactly. You should try it sometime. Sleeping with another man I mean."

"...No."

"Oh come on. Don't knock it until you try it."

"No."

"Why not?"

"Because I know you just wanna watch!"

"Eh...I don't need you for that you know," she huffs. "That is what slaves are for."

"Do you really...of course you did."

"So you don't like her huh?"

"Fuck off."

"Well if you did why didn't you sleep with her?"

"...Maybe because we are friends and maybe because I don't need to fuck everyone I meet."

She gives you a look of sheer and utter disbelief.

"...Wait do not tell me you never had a friend you didn't sleep with did you?"

"You...don't fuck your friends?" Why wouldn't you?" She asks aghast in shock.

"Is there anyone you DON'T fuck?" You cannot help but question her.

"Kin of blood and ugly weaklings," she tells you straightforwardly.

"...Do I want to know how long that list would be if it included rape?"

"Same thing," she shrugs. "Yes. No. Doesn't matter. I take if I'm stronger."

"...Why not me then?"

"Already mine. You don't break your own possessions. That is stupid," she slowly but tenderly informs you as if explaining to a dull child. "So do you like her or not?"

"Do you?"

"Sure. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bothered. So why hesitate?"

"The warnings you had and I don't know how you would react when it comes to others...and her to you as well as others."

"A good point to consider. At first to be honest I was a bit unsure of myself but when you brought up the idea of...well them NOT being like us at all. It honestly shocked and stumped me for quite a while. Eventually, though I realized something. Such a thing is entirely outside my domain. We have no conflict of interests or overlap so why should I care? Yet the first one you consider is a little thing from your old home. Yet you want to know if I'm a threat yes?" She inquires grabbing your head to look right into your eyes. "You need some reminders apparently. If you had wealth, interests, and affection worth competing over you would have a point. Yet this family, management, and resources belong to me. Not you. Not her. Not anyone else. My family of blood is already assured thanks to my siblings."
>>
>>5240881
You are too obsessed with training and care not for any other affairs. You would be a disaster if you were left in charge and you don't want to be distracted anyway. So tell me what is there to feel threatened by? What is there to compete against? What is there to compete for other than your cock? You may have a potential little man and you may desire to establish your own family. I don't even mind offering myself since I find you full of potential so why not? So why should I care when frankly there is nothing else about to fight over and when everything else is already in my hands?" She asks you patting you on the butt before whispering into your ear.

"Your ass is already mine. Someday perhaps you will spread your wings and establish yourself but are you willing to pay the price to do so? Even if you are I will already have gotten what I wanted from you and you from me. I will bear your offspring. You will have your 'family'. Rather what you should be worried about is just how much are you willing to trouble yourself."

"...You know you can be a real bitch."

"I know but I'm YOUR bitch," she suddenly giggles and cuddles with you. "You should talk to the girl some more. I know you like her but it's riskier for us females and you need to test her for yourself. I already have my answers."

"...So either females in a lesser position like her who can potentially come back to bite me or stronger females like you who may not even throw me a bone," you grumble aloud.

"That is indeed more or less your choice when it comes to worthwhile females. Of course, the quantity approach is also worth considering. Sex slaves are so much fun and if you want someone with potential nothing beats going out on a raid and breaking them in yourself to enjoy," she murmurs drowsily.

The next day Zixra left early to hunt. Leaving the two of you alone.

"It's fine no need to be so shy it's not like we didn't see each other naked already," she sighs entering the hot spring nude and languidly.

"About Zixra," you begin also entering.

"No need," she interrupts you shrugging. "I know how to handle her. Really most of everyone does besides you. Best not to put too much resistance lest she thinks your challenging her and give in quickly. Let her have her fun and so she quickly grows bored before moving on. I let her know she is in charge and had her fun. All is well because of it."

"...I didn't think she was that easy to handle," you mutter in confusion.

"She isn't. You have never seen what she is actually like. She behaves...very differently around you. Very mellow compared to what she is usually like. Everyone else is scared shitless of her and for good reason. She is a cruel vicious brutal cunt. She'll rape, torture, eat and kill your loved ones before your very eyes just to prolong your suffering before it's your turn," explains Strauvana.

"...I know she raids, enslaves, pillages, and can be cruel but that is certainly different."
>>
>>5240935
"What do you really think anyone has the guts to tell you the truth when you are so carefully sheltered by them?" She snorts in derision. "I'm not saying her methods aren't effective and I don't mean to stir trouble. It just...annoys me that you are so painfully oblivious but maybe you knew all along and just never cared since she was so sweet to you."

"...I guess this isn't working out huh."

"Hm not because of but because of YOU."

"WHAT?"

"You heard me. You know we all had our hopes up when you took down that hydra alive all those years ago...but then nothing. Absolutely nothing. You went right back into your little isolated corner to study and practice endlessly. Right after submitting to 'her' family no less because they would make it easy for you to do so without any distractions. Some thought hey maybe you would snap out of it just like during the Hydra...as they thought you could awaken but we both know the truth don't we?"

"..."

"I'm going to tell you the truth because we used to be family alright? Any girl you try to get who is 'vulnerable' but high quality like many of us orphans? She is going to have to submit to Zixrathmorath too and YOU don't have the balls to stand up to her. You don't have the guts to stand up for your children. Since Zixrathmorath why she is the one who manages everything doesn't she? She is in charge, isn't she? Most of the resources belong to her and not you all are managed by her not you."

"I did interve-"

"Will you stop your training? Will actually go out and prove yourself? How about managing affairs yourself instead of just shoving it all onto Zixrathmorath? Do know what the worst part of it is? I don't even blame you because a woman like that...is absolutely perfect for you. You get to hole up and focus on it while ignoring everything else. It's just a man like that is hell for girls like me but for women just like Zixrathmorath? They are going to fucking LOVE you for it. You don't give them a hard time. You have the ability. You have potential. You keep yourself useful yet...no problems. The perfect little pet for them to enjoy and boy toy to pass around."

"...Is that what you truly think about me huh?"

"It is. I won't lie. I was expecting more but I do not actually blame you for it as someone like her really is perfect for you. I just...don't understand why you would throw it all away. I know it's not cowardice the Hydra proved that so what is it?"

"...There are bigger concerns involved that I have to keep in mind."

"Even at the cost of demeaning yourself in such a way? If you want worthy women you don't need to kiss the ass of what you are doing isn't going to work. None of them are going to want to submit to Zixra since they have too much self respect for themselves. Myself included. If you of course went off and established yourself that would be different."

"..."

"You aren't going to are you?"

"I am not strong enough yet. I am just not ready. One day I will be though."

------
You spent more time brushing up on your magic when you weren't courting and preparing to finally recruit some followers of your own. Unfortunately, your laziness ever since the Hydra has damaged your renown and people's excitement with you. Which will make things harder. However, you have other options like the undead, and Zixrathmorath when she found out had some help in mind.

Magical practice with Strauvana. Recruiting with Zixrathmorath. Multitasking baby. Strauvana had some interesting tricks to show you especially since she trained under the undead the entire time. While Zixrathmorath chose to show you the dark side of recruiting efforts. To be more accurate she was quite looking forward to this as she introduced how her family managed things as raiders as an example and her own...explorations with 'joint' recruitment and mixed groups.

In your case with your taste for the undead and monsters. Most normal people obviously aren't going to be interested. So you are limited to the weirdos, rejects, outcasts, and scum. A specialty that Baz family happened to have some serious connections towards thanks to them being raiders and slavers. Only how were you going to get them to share?

Turned out you didn't need to since you had Zixrath to help you out.

Baby means Dynasty will be officially founded. I had anticipated anons powergaming, whoring themselves, and NEETing while relying upon a Sugar Mommy. I accidentally overlooked something very important though and it was obvious in hindsight. On the plus side the whoring themselves is classic tradition in terms of selling off your offspring to marriage for profit/power throughout history so hey. You already got a headstart on that and I DID plan for that. I just uh...overlooked some stuff.

You as usual focused on your magic training and slept in bed with Zixrathmorath. Day after day. It was all perfectly normal. Until one day she started to get sick in the morning. Started to crave strange foods. You didn't realize it at first until one day during dinner with the family she had gone to visit a 'friend' with her mother. Upon their return, during dinner, they announced Zixra was pregnant. The next morning both her parents were just poof gone. You slowly realized that Zixra had suddenly developed a craving for manflesh.

You...really weren't expecting to become a father. Especially to have the two people who actually knew anything about childcare just up and leave. So for the first time in years...you went out and did something besides train. You didn't even consider flirting with other girls because you were a bit concerned(rightfully) that Zixra would eat them alive. Instead, you ran away I mean visited a friend among the outcasts freaking out about your incoming fatherhood. As not even your usual training was enough to calm you down. There you were around a fire in a desolate part of the forest with other exiles whom even Zixra's forces viewed with derision. At best they were weak weirdos at worst traitors of humanity itself. In other words the perfect place for people like you.

"So let me get this straight," asks Rajos in sheer disbelief looking at you despite your clearly...very young looks. "You really knocked up Zixrathmorath and you are sure it's yours?"

"...It happened when she was taking a break from raiding and the only people were sleeping with besides me were other women," you retort with a snort. "So yeah I know it's mine."

"Just checking man she has a bit of a...promiscuous reputation...especially when it comes to rape...but wow you knocked up something like that already. Damn you must have risked your life huh?"

"Exactly I'm freaking out man I thought I had more time! Instantly practically the minute I shoved my dick inside her not long after she got knocked up. Just look at me how do I look like an adult I barely hitting puberty for fucks sake!"

Rajos takes another deep look at you and nods in agreement. "Yeah man you uh...definitely look like a kid still, but hey maybe you just have a pretty young face and are a pretty boy right? That is a good thing right?"

...Shit he may have point. You aren't exactly the rugged or manly type...

"Well, what the fuck am I supposed to do man. I have no idea what I'm doing and Zixra has suddenly gone nuts. She never used to be a maneater like her mother but now she is literally roasting people alive and eating them for breakfast. I heard pregnant women would crave certain foods but what the hell."

"Sounds like you my friend could really use a break. Honestly, we all had bets about when it was going to happen. Figured it would be a baby but fuck nobody bet it would happen so quickly," grumbles Rajos who pats you on the back.
>>
>>5241068
"Yet don't worry you can trust big bro Rajos we are gonna go on a nice relaxing hunt with the boyz."

"...How is a hunt in any way relaxing?"

"It is when you bring a dragon."

"...Very good point."

Of course, it took time to get a hold of everyone and get everybody together to celebrate your potential fatherhood. In the meantime, you visited with the outcasts who didn't mind your interaction with the undead and monsters. Hell, you even met fellow monster lovers among them! That was a very...interesting conversation. Something about monstergirl waifu supremacy. They called you a faggot for knocking up a nonmonster. You met some fellas who dabbled with the undead. Scummiest of scumbags. Many more. Carousing among them...for the first time, you didn't feel the need to hide what you felt like and who you are.

You never felt that before with anyone else outside your family and these were other people. People you realized you wouldn't mind being 'your' people. Even potential your own tribe perhaps. Of course, all good things must come to end. It ended with a bang with everyone screaming and running for their lives when a dragon showed up roaring and crashing to the ground right before picking you up by its claws to go on a hunt.

I mean you at least had to bring SOMETHING home right? Totally not an excuse to avoid your baby momma or anything nope...I mean someone has to bring home the bacon. Totally not an excuse to laze around because who the fuck is going to mess around with a dragon until the very last second cause yet again DRAGON motherfucker! In other words it was an awesome hunt.

Honestly, if you put more effort in you could have got a lot better results. If you hadn't had a dragon you probably would have had jackshit done. Instead taking a dragon hunting was indeed cheating. Like seriously. All did was chill, chat, hangout, and relax. Occasionally go out to hunt something near the end so it wasn't obvious you weren't slacking the entire time with the boyz(you totally were). Sadly though the hunt had to end and you had to return home. Not looking forward to dealing with your nutty lover whose pregnant hormones had in near constant berserk state. Like goddamn.

Thankfully there was a long line of sex slaves between you and her. Pretty sure it was the only thing that saved your pelvis from being grinded into dust. Not to mention her rampages that was scourging the entire area because she was so impatient and hormonal she couldn't be bothered to venture as far as before as she did when it came to her usual raiding. Yes she went raiding pregnant. The result was even more spectular then when she wasn't knocked up.

Finally the day approached when she even despite her strength was too burdened to keep up her insane raids and usual affairs was forced to stay home. Those days...were such dark terrible days for you. Since there was no longer anything to keep her distracted. When she finally went into labor those tears of joy were crying weren't for your children but relief that the torment was finally over or so you thought.

>>5241086
For all intents and purposes, the MC is a NEET loser who did the minimum to get attention then proceeded to leach off it and hanged off the thighs of the nearest sugar mommy for dear life while whoring himself. His excuse even being the fantastic 'The world is in great danger so I must prepare as I am the only one who can save it while hiding in his room practicing and studying. This was done entirely due to anons powergaming and despite my warnings. What's gets even more hilarious and better is when you realize he is at the same time following the path of a Dark Sorcerous Overlord with his relations with evil factions and forces of darkness. LMAO

I fucking love it because it's killing me in terms of how fucking hilarious and ironic it is. Not to mention the effects it had on your Dynasty Founding modifiers. Oh, shit is it funny. Good thing you aren't locked into it thanks to the Branch Dynasty dynamic and fighting to be Primary dynasty but still fucking hilarious.

>>5241094
Despite the screaming and then you heard the crying...but they were not the cries of babies. The childbirth didn't last as long as you thought. When you entered the room you had to step over the fresh corpse of the midwife. This confused you for a while until you saw what she was cradling in her arms...they were not human.

You couldn't help but shudder and think of sending them away just like the Monster Swarm Queen did when you were made...but looked at how that worked out. Looking at Zixrathmorath you could despite her worn out condition and bleeding....there was a lot of blood. The wounds were severe. Her eyes were sunken and she was covered in sweat but sparkling with maternal love as she held and nursed her twins...despite being freaks.

You...swallowed the words that you were about to say when gazing at them.

"...We will need to leave," she orders you. "...I killed the midwife to buy time but we must go."

"Already made your decision."

"I will NOT abandon my children and leave them to die in the wild just because they are born this way," she hisses angrily at you. "I intended to leave anyhow. No, sooner is better."

"..."

"You don't love them do you?" She suddenly accuses you suspiciously.

"...They bring up difficult memories for me," you confess with a sigh as you sit down with her. "I...was abandoned the same way when I was born and I was picked up raised by a kindly old man who took me in...now feels like history is repeating and fate is laughing at me."

"I-I had no idea, my condolences," she apologizes.

"It's in the past now...but this choice will make enemies."

"It will be okay. I already have a place in mind," she assures you. "Hm...you know what's funny?"

"What?"

"Isn't this a dream come true for you? To mingle man and monster. Starting with your own family," she chuckles wryly.

"...pfftahaha, you have a good point there," you admit chuckling with her. Of course, you soon had to leave and rush the preparations. If it was any...lesser woman the childbirth would have outright killed them. Even for her, she was greatly weakened from it. Luckily she was planning this for a while and it wasn't unusual for babies to die during childbirth or soon after. which bought you some time before they realized they did not die. In fact, they were freakishly strong and tough from appearances. Just twisted, misshapen, and clearly inhuman.

Consorts(Keep on whoring)
Grooming Inward Perfection(fucking NEETs)

Founder scores too low(you goddamn manwhoring useless NEET). Outranked by mate. Mate nonhostile and friendly. Synergy detected. Forfeiting Dynasty Leader Post.

NEW POSITIONS FORMED
Heads(Better name suggested). Form a union and declare the partner of the union a Head. Gain full bonuses, unique synergy, symbiosis, and governance.

...Yes this literally means you DO NOT HAVE A FUCKING LEADER TO THE DYNASTY. Your dynasty is built around the concept of allying, synergizing, mooching, and forming symbiotic bonds with others instead. I could not fucking believe this shit. To add further insult to injury....your dynasty has literally 0 standards and is a bunch of lazy whorish NEETs who focus on self improvement are full of themselves. Worst of all they are actually have really strong bonuses but are literally too goddamn lazy and wanting to mooch off others to actually bother doing stuff themselves. I mean why should they when they can get their lovers to do all their work for them?

FUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

... It's a fucking Support specialized Dynasty focused on internal buildup while hiding behind others and targeting normally hostile factions(aka you the baddies). tfw I had no idea this was going to happen and I still don't know how to handle the fact that you need to form unions with others to assign them as heads because you literally have no Leader because your Founder was that much of a loser who whored himself and NEETed that fucking hard. On the plus side holy shit are you going to have a LOT of friends and allies. Like seriously the synergy and symbiosis bonuses you offer are absurd. You are definitely going to be the most desired pieces of ass possible and everyone(else) is going to severely understimate you when they frankly REALLY shouldn't. Lazy, dependent, and whorish not weak.

...This wasn't supposed to happen damn it.

In my defense, I actually plan for that. I just failed to realize the ramifications of having a founder who is such a loser he cannot be the Leader and therefore something else must engage instead. Resulting in a weird symbiosis effect. I had everything else handled but that caught me off guard. The Dynasty effects would even be pretty strong if they weren't so goddamn lazy, whorish, and dependent. Like fuck. All those bonuses WASTED cause they literally cannot be bothered to use them.

It does make them the best secret BBEG and bosses for the heroes to encounter when they discover the Heads and families they dealt with...turned out the real baddy you had to worry about was their slutty in bed NEET loser of a lover all along. that shit is gonna be hilarious.

To point out the obvious since you are a support specialized dynasty that specializes in offering NEET consorts it's VERY important to have lots of offspring that you can offer other groups. Your Dynasty power is built off CONNECTIONS. To build connections you need to offer your MEMBERS up. It's also extremely important to leverage the MC(sell his ass) because he has a Founder AND Proginator bonus to offer up. Why do you think Sugar Mommy is so OP? The buffs you're giving her are no joke.

------
As much as you want to laze around and practice magic. Sadly there are things that you get off your lazy ass to do. Mainly because you are one of the only magic users and SOMEONE has to scout ahead for magical bullshit before it fucks everyone up the ass. That is your job.

Luckily Zixrathmorath spent a lot of effort in scouting and traveled through this way regularly. The only problem is she never passed through with an entire migration. Only a few raiders, loot, and slaves. In other words, light, and fast until being weighed down a bit on the way home. Those numbers make a huge difference. A lot of routes they previously used simply are too small for a large number of people you need to have crossed. You did at least get a look at the location that Zixra is interested in. A peculiar huge chain of mystical mountains that crosses over many different environments. To make things even weirder some of those mountains are actually floating islands. The mountain she is after is located in the middle of a river so huge that you cannot see the other side and the only way to reach it is by climbing across those island mountains and floating islands.

It didn't take long to reach the mountain chain was after and what confused you was how to move across quickly until you realized some of the things...growing and attached to those mountains. The things digging THROUGH the mountains. The gigantic vents of magic and whatever else spraying throughout the mountains. They were fucking maze and you had a map...sort of. You needed a better one that could move a lot of people and you just happen to know exactly where to ask. Since you recognized some of those marks and growths. Monster Motherlands was near and it didn't belong to weaklings. Fortunately, you had monsters with you to vouch they were young and untested but you were also monster blood and mating with them constantly. There was no way they would turn you down.

Sure enough, they didn't. Even if they did bully the shit out of your new weakling recruits(poor buggers). All you had to do was exchange some sexual favors and had some chats. Soon thanks to pillow talk you had a lot of answers. They knew of the area you intended to settle down in and some of the paths there. The tricky part was that as you expected the sheer number of people. Luckily your people weren't completely weaklings(although to be fair monsters have a VERY skewed perception of 'weak' cause their fucking monsters). Plenty of veteran raiders, undead, and monsters should be able to handle most problems. Only the only problem was the outcasts but you sorta need some supporters who would actually like you.
>>
>>5241214
Thanks to your proven record of dealing with monsters and indebting(now paid) to them. You were able to secure some shortcuts by passing through the monster territory and getting some guides via your marvelous performance they were so happy with you. Best of all you got to laze around and 'work' with nobody the wiser thanks to those monsters. They thought diplomacy with them was so hard...okay maybe you ARE slacking on your physique training...it definitely wasn't entirely easy. Like...definitely need to catch up on that. Being tanky is a very important aspect of performance and survival even if you do have magic.

You did at least find out that in truth not many people were fond of living in the mountains due to the unusual environments and close proximity to too many death traps. Even if they DO make a great shortcut to pass through regions to quickly reach others. It's why the monsters like living here and are crawling all over it. Easy access to many regions to target. Monsters obviously don't care for the 'harsh living'. Doubtful they even notice so long as there is food nearby and safe nests. The danger is instead a bit different the environment is deadly and what lives in it is even worse. You would be hard pressed to find a single 'normal' beast here. They practically all are Magical in nature which is how they survive.

Meanwhile many in the past had foolishly attempted to pass through and died for it. Resulting in many concentrations of necrotic miasma lurking around. Death is common. A lot of food comes from outside and the same is true for much wealth and population. While the monsters report many graves, pre world ruins, and fresh battlefields. Unlike where you have been before the undead doesn't concentrate as much here and like to 'wander'. The monsters don't know why exactly but they know the Outsiders undead have been slowly losing ground while the new primordial undead has been mobile.

On top of that great dragon, roosts abound. Along with gigantic plants and megafauna. The monsters even report giants. Yet when you inquired about there being tribes they look confused. According to them, the only tribes are 'outside'. Which made you finally realize what this place was. Forbidden Ground. A goddamn Death Zone. Apparently, most life forms are either huge or in gigantic swarms. With some mountains actually being hollowed out Hives and trees turned into mountains. You inquire if there is much in terms of intelligent life. Apparently not much but more than you would in just in stranger forms than you would realize. Developing intelligence tends to happen when you are big and strong enough after a while.
>>
>>5241230
After that, you get back to scouting to confirm what the monsters told you. Unfortunately, they did not appear to lie. If anything because they are monsters they massively downplayed the dangers, risks, and distances involved. Those 'hives' were completely barren of life and if it weren't for the lacking thickness of miasma you would have fallen for those barren mountains. Instead after seeing how even a foolish dragon was stripped to the bone in a matter of seconds you also gave them a very wide birth.

You even saw a passing horde of undead moving through. Even you had never seen such a sight before. You always assumed they lurked close to their graves or other sites of importance. Worst still some of those undead RADIATED the very miasma that was deathly fog that was obscuring everything and attracting even more undead. As the undead gathered more and more...the fog thickened. Creating a vicious self feeding cycle and giant snowball. Which explains why you saw so few 'wandering' undead. They gathered into giant hordes.

Meanwhile, every beast and plant that survived here all held a nasty surprise. Without fail, there was something special about them. At first, you thought it was magic but later on, you realized not all of them were actually magical, and yet they could compete and even kill those who were. The monsters you could understand but for the first time, you see beasts, plants, and even mushrooms slay monsters. Meanwhile, the very rocks themselves seemed dense and thick thrumming with energy. So thick in fact at random, there would be quakes or vents opening up spraying because the ground finally couldn't contain it anymore. When that happened you would often see a 'bloom' as whatever nearby would swoop in and flood the location before entrenching themselves swiftly securing the new site and defending it from would-be takers.

Some of those energies and vents were more valuable than others to certain kinds. As many times you saw the undead hordes just ignore them before abruptly changing their mind seemingly at random and swarming those few sites of interest. Those were just an example. Made you curious about what was so special about it but you weren't suicidal enough to find out. Even more fascinating was it wasn't always the ground that produced those vents and quakes. You could even see the air ripple, shatter, and vent at times. Not to mention those gigantic plants...which would explain just 'how' they manage to grow so gigantic so quickly. Yet even they couldn't contain the sheer power and would eventually be forced to vent it.

Seeing all this... finally made you feel like a small fry even without comparing yourself to those survivors of the world being born. Even with the shortcuts and a few guides, it was still very dangerous and time consuming to find routes ahead for everyone else. Eventually, you did now it was a matter of finding a place to settle.

Luckily Zixra already did some scouting for locations but you are now curious about what else you can find by yourself. As you know she and you have very different priorities and tastes. Than again probably not a good idea to divide your forces so soon when starting out.

>roll 1d100 and make a suggestion about what you are looking for specifically.
The higher the roll the better the odds. You may back other posts by forfeiting or adding onto their suggestion. This will create a dice pool depending on how many anons choose to vote for it.

At least with all this traveling, you did confirm some routes and backup routes in case something goes wrong. You even found some nifty shortcuts You are curious about why she insisted on this place despite how incredibly dangerous it is. It doesn't really make much sense as far as you think. You have to cover a lot of dangerous ground to find easy prey and loot. Not the mention all the expected losses during the migration.

Monsters are now willing to negotiate for additional terms and benefits.

So TLDR We are on our way to being one of if not the most powerful death lords to ever live, Are gathering all the secrets of the universe, fuck our brains out and create super eugenics babies, and are going to dedicate our family to defending this world from invaders before using our secret knowledge to raid other worlds.

I do fancy the idea of being a Parasitic Dynasty though. It's a bit unique no? Playing as the consort instead of the leader, while also being strong enough to topple the Leader and take over, but not doing so because we suck at it.

MC always had a very languishing attitude. Yes, he would train his ass off and study but he was very unwilling to do anything more. Prefers to delegate it to others even at the cost of his own agency(who cares NEETdom for the win lol). He also developed a fondness for mooching and manwhoring. Basically any excuse to be autistic shut in with delusions of grandeur.

Keep in mind this is ONLY the first generation MC. Not second. Things will change and you can swap out MCs. It's worth noting though he really isn't that weak just inexperienced and completely disinterested in anything outside his 'hobbies'. That is literally the point of having multiple generations of MCs and options to choose from with each Gen.

Considering the debates over purpose let me explain a bit more about your place and situation in the world.

You are literally an early stone age tribe who are barely above primitives in terms of development. Calling you backwards savage tribals is a compliment and you are nowhere close to civilized. The MC happens to know about 'other worlds' and realms that actually DO have civilizations and are very well developed. He also knows about the fact that barriers separating the world from getting invaded by them are temporary.

Knowing the graveness of the situation and being a very odd youth. He took a very...different approach due to the overwhelming pressure what he faced. To be specific instead of being a righteous hero he went 'fuck that I do whatever it takes'. Yes, you can make fun of him for being a NEET and manwhore but look at it from the support he is gathering in exchange for his own dignity and selling himself as well as his own dynasty. Dealing with him is dealing with not just ONE BBEG or an evil Dark Dynasty. We are talking about an entire alliance and chain reaction.

In smaller terms, your development is nonexistent and built off the hope that the magic you are learning won't accidentally kill you because nobody knows what the fuck their doing and what you DO know is all about 'other realms' not the rules within your own native world. The odds of your magic killing you becomes more likely the stronger your magic.

Purpose wise grows your dynasty. Establish new branch dynasties. Fight over which will be the primary dynasty. Realize that maybe you wanna invest MCs into specific projects and goals. Defending the world is a neat goal but with WHAT?
>>
>>5241649
Now let me use the current MC as an example in terms of projects and goals. Some anons want him to save the world and become a super badass. Others want to exploit the unexpected consort angle. Here is the thing though. This is only the CURRENT MC. He will die and be replaced. Probably by blowing himself up with magic during his obsessive training at the current rate.

However, what you all fail to realize is that the MC is a Dynasty FOUNDER. His entire point of existence is ESTABLISHING the very first Dynasty so that GAME OVER can be avoided. MCs are disposable and replaceable. The point of the dynasty is to cultivate superior MCs and dispatch them for whatever goals the players choose. Yes, this can include saving the world or being a consort to BBEGs obviously.

However, this is the First MC. The one who is supposed to make sure all those other goals are possible by making the dynasty happen. It just so happens that the very first Dynasty is a Dynasty of Symbiotic Darkness. Now here is the interesting thing about that little fact. It's a Support and submissive dynasty. At first glance, this means they are completely useless besides being a bunch of Powerleveling lazy ass NEETs consorts behind the throne...except by the very nature of the Dynasty it's Supportive and Submissive. It CONCEDES to other Dynasties.

Why what does this mean? Do you think those other fucking Dynasties want their own goddamn offspring to be a bunch of lazy whorish NEETs who despite being so powerful do nothing with it? It means your Dynasty TAKES ON THE TRAITS OF ITS PARTNERS AND HEADS. This is via the symbiosis effect and how your progeny will change from previous generations. Now if you are speaking Purity wise then yeah that is probably the case...except yet again you are a Supportive Dynasty who submits to others in exchange for massive buffs to both sides. The submission means by that very nature your own Dynasty has to adapt and concede to the other party. Your progeny actually adapts and changes faster than other Dynasties because of this. As they are able to mooch off their partner to speed up their own development.

This isn't obvious because the current MC is under the Founder and Proginator effect. However, it kicks in with his offspring. It's what makes your dynasty so insanely valuable to other factions for partners, allies, and mates. It is what allows you to fine tailor progeny to best suit other factions' desires and needs. The current state of the Dynasty is the Default...but the default in actuality is going to be rarely initiated since many progenies are going to be sired by other more powerful factions who dominate and who have a symbiotic synergy activated. Simply put they are not going to LET you raise all of your descendants to be like that.

TLDR You are the Waifu and waifus vary according to tastes.

You choose to investigate for intelligent life signs.

Discovered
>Dragons
>Awakened
>Undead
>Spirits
>Forsaken

Overall there is intelligent life. The rarest are those like humanoids. The monsters told you about the giants they encountered but yourself failed to find any of them. The problem is you also don't really know how to communicate with most of them. You yourself only know the Spirit Tongue, Dead Tongues, monster dialects, and some local dialects. There is enough in common in your language so far to communicate with other people since they haven't changed so much yet but for other beings entirely its a different story.

At least it gave you time to brush up on your hunting albeit with difficulty.

Everything was so much more dangerous here you had a hell of a time finding good prey. Mainly since it was debatable whether the prey was actually prey or couldn't fight back. If they couldn't fight they were very sneaky or good at running. If you were unlucky tricky as hell.

Roll 1d100 for results in the hunt. First roll only.

On your way back when trying to find any traces of intelligent life and hunting. You spent on brushing up your martial practice. Which to be honest you have been completely ignoring and are rusty as hell. Besides that one time period where you did practice it you have been ignoring it ever since. Which given how for the very first time you encountered things that could resist magic made you deeply regret that decision. Even your physique is really lagging behind as you discovered during your hunts when your spells backfired or you took some hits. You just weren't tanky enough anymore.

I'm gonna need to point something out. You haven't been investing in your physique so what makes you think you can handle snu snu with both a giantess AND a dragon? Look anons if you want to mate with stronger creatures and live you need a tough enough body to pull it off. Keep in mind that 'primary' attribute stat is by Giant and Dragon standards so...yeah. Very different standards from your puny form in comparison to their size and power.

You should also reconsider the older list...if only because they are a lot less potentially lethal in terms of snu snu. It's just the options this time are so OP because you burnt an entire turn on it so you got the strongest possible (available) choices. Yes, the Dragon is ALSO a special option but there is one too in the other list and it's actually survivable...probably. Well at least in comparison to a damned dragon and giantess. I mean if you had invested in your physique more this wouldn't be a problem admittedly but I need to speak up before you get the MC killed because he hasn't made enough babies yet and this is common fucking sense.

>>5241872

Damn still no love for the Monster Matriarch option huh? I was going something similar this time but you already had it unlocked already and it was a special variant because of it. Ah well. So I just gave you a rare instead.

Okay more info requested on a few options so here it is

Orphan #3 had a beguiling bloodline and was a literally enchanting beauty. The MC did grow up with her(its why he can resist her beauty). She did leave with you because she was accused of witchcraft and seduction.

Dark Chieftess Illona comes from an unusual tribe hailing from underground. Her people have already developed their own distinct identity and are developing their own heritage. You found her out solely due to extreme difficulty option actually uncovering the existence of her people and faction. They are very sneaky and nocturnal when they leave their caves.

Monster Chieftess Zea is a humanoid monster. They are a rarity and the only type of monsters known to actually utilize tools. This also makes them among the most intelligent of monster kind but peculiarly the most hostile to mankind as well. She was enticed due to your history with the monsters, past dealings with them, and massive bonus drawing her out.

Keeper Meverra dominates her own domain and refuses to leave it holding great power within on top of her original might. She is actually one of the guardians of key defensive points to this world and is laying low while building up her power for the inevitable assaults upon her position. Also knows many secrets and terrible knowledge.

Lady Naga Tizisha is a prestigious lady of legendary stature whom you best never call a 'beastfolk' or a 'snakekin' or gods save you a 'half lizardfolk'. Born of the Naga who are what Phoenix's are to birds that the Naga are to beastfolk. Naturally someone like her is particularly refined and educated albeit one who wishes to sample the 'exotic'.

Giantess Xekkrus leader of a giant tribe in the mountain range. Actually a neighbor of yours who is of notably titanic stature compared to the smaller nomadic kin you knew previously. Is experienced these mountains and curious about what smallfolk who are ballsy enough to try and live there. Even by Giant's standards is renowned for her size and power.

Dragon Sthyriss a young female dragon whom you stumbled across that is also a native of a dragon roost in these mountains. Like any dragon is vain, proud, greedy, gluttonous, and overbearing. In other words you know exactly how to deal with her and she liked that. Is notable at least among dragons for her keen mind.
>>
>>5242005
The Naga and Keeper sound the most interesting to me aside from the dragon of course. Once we amass more power we should settle on a defensive point one day.
>>
Actually Orphan 3's bloodline would be perfect for our dynasty.
>>
>>5242008
I would suggest sticking with the prioritizing based on rarity, usefulness, and survivability. Some options are MUCH easier to find than others.

Dragon for example. Extremely rare.
Monster Matriarch Extremely still.
Naga is very rare.
Keeper is very rare. Only discovered due to the location.
Monster Chieftess was rare.

Of course, rarity isn't everything another thing to keep in mind is what they have to offer. Unfortunately due to lacking lineage(everyone is too fucking new) what you have to go on is limited and largely unproven. That is the shitty part about early on. So many good things and so easy to miss since you just don't know. It's not like you check out their family history and see how great it is or anything. Keep in mind no matter how great something is if you can't survive it's no good. This is why the dragon was a trap option. Yes absurdly good but lol good luck.

In general special options you acquire via actions or through digging tend to be better than average than just scraping the surface of whatever you can find. Also devoting a single action to it really saved your ass otherwise you wouldn't have gotten so many strong options despite only doing so some scouting and looking for intelligent life just being so new. Sadly dumping so much in magic and forgetting to level physique screwed you. A lot of them are going to be pretty tough to survive because of it.

>>5242012
If you can entice her. Keep in mind what the other orphan mentioned.
>>
>>5242005
I'll go for Orphan 3, Keeper Meverra and Dark Chieftess Illona. Maybe if the huge bonus we have can let us choose a 4th, then i'll go with Lady Naga Tizisha

Orphan 3 for the history we search and her qualities (maybe she can show us how to be more charismatic), Keeper Meverra for the position of her people (and maybe a couple of our kids would come handy to her), Illona because if we live in a strange and secluded place with a big arrange of routes to go to other reigns, maybe being a sneaky-tanky-magical bastard should come handy (i'm thinking in not only being a symbiotic faction but also a Spy one. Maybe do something like Wakanda itself, with sending spies and young promises to other reigns, learn as much as they can from their knowledge and come back with said knowledge to improve our own faction under the table). And the Naga because of her position within the Nagas and all that.
>>
Oh yeah have we reached pioneer magic status yet? Or is it still in the wild magic stage?

Dark Chieftess illona and Keeper Meverra it is. I thought there would have been more but ah well. Apparently, you are going to seduce, court, and make babies with them. You will however meet the others as well cause that 1 action is so strong.
-----
You decide to do what you were born to do. Pay attention to any lonely single ladies and bachelorettes who need some loving attention. Sure it took a while to find some but you would be damned if you didn't find the biggest and loneliest(most powerful) females you could find. Sure enough, you found them. Sure others were busy moving but you were busy courting.

Stumbling upon the mysterious tribe of the beautiful Illona who only leave their caves at night. Her beauty beneath the stars and moon touched your very soul and stirred your loins. Sure you got lost trying to find her home underground but find it you did and courted her. Maybe if you were more charismatic you would have gotten a better idea. Yet you aren't completely inexperienced just uh...well ahem. You know how to 'pleasure' her and that you did.

Perhaps another man would have dignity and pride. Desires to not mooch off women and provide for his own family. You didn't have that problem. So you kissed her ass, hugged her thick thighs, and held on tight to her pussy. You knew the drill. If you could get through that vicious, cruel, angry, horny rapist, demonic, cannibalistic, berserking ravager you would be damned if you couldn't handle her. Honestly compared to her this was much easier. Courting, seducing, and mating. She made clear her stance and you conceded everything while latching on for dear life. Suddenly she no longer had to worry about pesky suitors, not having an heir, or dealing with a man who would threaten her position. All you got was...a few offspring to be sent to you in the future whom she would be raising and some potential other benefits that you knew were only a matter of time. Mainly because it took time to win her over properly and for the bonds to thicken.

Which they did after she was confirmed pregnant and she promised to 'visit'(booty calls) in the future. In time her position would be secured and the benefits would come in. As you already know she is interested in the benefits of being a Head. She just needed to get a taste and deeper appreciation for what you had to offer.

>Dark Chieftess Illona is a Head(temporary) position but that may change
Current terms in your favor. Progeny distribution once early childhood is survived. Illona has agreed to transfer a few spares to your care. Favoring herself.
Dark Chieftess Illona is the primary beneficiary. Dominant Partner.
Terms will be amended in the future in exchange for Head Position Permanent.
Symbiosis activated with Dark Chieftess Illona. Buffs are applied to both sides. Illona will soon want more and stronger.

Well, shit my bad. In that case, as compensation, you get to catch them all for catching my mistake.

>>5242083
Next up was the Keeper Meverra unexpectedly someone you l encountered in the last place you thought and the place you most wanted to find. You only heard of these places before and that is where you met Keeper Meverra. The Guardian of it.

Courting her was the first time you met with trouble. It was only when you showed off that you knew a bit of knowledge that she began to open up and proceeded to hand you your ass because she knew far more than you did about such matters. Yet it was enough to get your foot in the door. From there you found out her duty was to guard it and you courted her. Flirting and seducing as you made your concessions as usual knowing your weaknesses. In exchange she allowed you to plunge into the deepest depths of her dungeon and you only left her bed when she was with child.

Fortunately, your experiences as a stud for the monsters prepared you for what was underneath those robes and false skin of hers...yikes. You thought monsters were bad but that was downright eldritch in nature you swear. If you didn't know any better you would have been convinced she was from another realm but her station here made that impossible. However, thanks to your common interests and you managed to win her over in the end.

>Keeper Meverra is a Head(temporary) position but that may change
Current terms in your favor. Progeny distribution once early childhood is survived. Meverra has agreed to transfer a few spares to your care. Favoring herself.
Keeper Meverra is the primary beneficiary. Dominant Partner.
Terms will be amended in the future in exchange for Head Position Permanent.
Symbiosis activated with Dark Chieftess Illona. Buffs are applied to both sides. Meverra will soon want more and stronger.

After that, you decided to flirt with a most unusual creature you met. Lady Naga Tizisha unlike everything else you ever encountered seemed like the closest thing you ever met to 'civilized'. Her refinement and power weren't something you were reminded of since the Monster Queen. Albeit in a very different and diminished fashion. Yet the same time there was something distinctly different about her. You can't say you poured the most effort into her but you did prioritize her over the others. From her, you learned the Naga apparently had very large settlements under their control and were far more powerful and better organized than the Beastmen. They were exemplary and yet you hit it right off with her.

Maybe it was because you were a savage who would end up ravishing such a lady...which is exactly what ended up happening truth be told. The pillow talk was nice once you talked to her with the fact that you were neither uneducated and also knew magic. Those two things made her very interested in you. Only to further shock her when she discovered that you had managed to fertilize all her eggs.
>>
>>5242113
Fortunately, Naga lay clutches so with some fretting and offers to help you managed to get her to share in the offspring. While leaving room for something more? The agreement you hashed with the Naga Lady Tizisha unfortunately is one that isn't as strong as the other two that are new. Much less your first one but it is still relatively robust. She made no offers of partnership or unifying but you still managed to get some other agreements from her and the potential to upgrade it.

>Naga Lady Tizisha has entered a pact with you
Current terms progeny distribution. Resource share. Ability to further court her. Favoring lady Tizisha.
Terms can be amended in the future via future interactions and time passing. She is interested and enticed.
Symbiosis activated. Buffs applied.

Next was Orphan Kylevera. Honestly you...don't really know what happened. You met an old childhood friend and past family member. Next thing you know you were in bed and she has gotten up and getting dressed again. Fluids still dripping down her leg.

"...What the fuck just happened," you ask aloud stunned.

"What? Not used to being the one who got seduced? Oh right, thanks for the pay too by the way."

"Wait what?" You suddenly look over and notice her grabbing some loot.

"What did you really think you were the only one allowed to whore around?" She asks you.

"...I thought I was immune," you complained.

"PFFT that was years ago!" She laughed at you. "Did you really think I wouldn't improve? I mean who would of thought you came to me and wouldn't see this coming. Just sad and I say this as a fellow whore. Thanks for the baby though."

"WHAT?" You scream scrambling out of bed but she was gone.

Every time you tried to catch her...somehow all your own tricks were turned against you. Somehow it always ended with you in bed and her swaggering off full of cum and richer. You couldn't stand it. Someone was challenging you in whoring and you couldn't let that happen. I mean how much of a joke is it that YOU of all people got seduced? REPEATEDLY! By your own childhood friend no less!

Luckily you had a secret weapon. Sugar Mommy was willing to pimp your ass and you had something to prove. Mainly as a reward to her fellow raiders and followers...totally not an excuse for orgies and group sex. Nope. Unfortunately, you forgot about the male raiders but surely she doesn't have any backers to help her right? So how could she beat you?

"So let me get this straight...you slept with all of them....and weren't even paid," Kylevera confirmed when you finally chased her down from her work and got a bite to eat as she counted her earnings.

"Yup so how many did you sleep with."

Kylevera spat her found out and roared with laughter she was laughing so hard until she was breathless before finally answer.
"None!" She told you with a shit eating grin.

"...What?"
>>
>>5242140
"Who says I ever slept with any of them," she asks you Her hand waving with a flicker of magic. "They merely THINK they did if I wanted them to. To be honest they just gave it to me...because I. Am. Just. So. Pretty."

"WHAT?" You shout your jaw dropping in shock.

"...You really are the worst fucking manwhore ever you know that? Not even getting paid for your work. That is just sad."

"...you...you...you-" You continued trembling with rage.

"...Aw did you think those stories about me seducing all those men and their cheating on their wives was true? I just enchanted them with beauty. Honestly, the hard part was not getting raped. I mean why should I demean myself by fucking them when I can just let them 'think' they did and make them pay me for the privilege of glimpsing(falsely) my beauty?"

"...but...but...you...and...me," you continue more out of mixed confusion now.

"Oh, that sweetheart? What did you really think I am as uptight as spooky girl or that I would be against fucking Zixra? Please. Just tell me when she wants a threesome. I'll be there."

"...I'm so confused," you mutter your head in your hands as she pats you on the back.

"There there...that is why you should leave the whoring and scamming to the professionals. I mean really not even once did you get paid that ENTIRE time? I mean please tell me at least Zixra of all people paid you right?"

"..."

"Holy shit you need my help far more than I could ever have imagined. Don't worry Madam Kylvera will make sure you get paid for getting pimped out from now on."

"Fuck you."

"I know you will baby I know you will and I am looking forward to it," she agrees with a smile.

>Kylevera has joined your Dynasty
>Kylevera is pregnant
Isn't she just great?

Next up were the two who turned out to be too strong for you to sleep with and live with. Instead, you spent time getting to know them and considering your future plan of action. IF only you were tough enough you SO could have plowed them right then and there though...what a wasted opportunity.

The dragon you knew exactly how to handle as your personalities and experience just meshed so well. Honestly, it was instinct dealing with her and that was it. Dragon Sthyriss was very happy with you but alas you had to delay sealing the deal...because you wanted to live another day. Instead, you spent time visiting her dragon home at a dragoon roost in the mountains. Her nest you noticed was full of odd shiny gemstones and nuggets of some strange substance were piled up into hills. While other items of what she assured you were 'precious and valuable treasures' were piled everywhere. The vast majority of which you didn't recognize. You did at least chat a bit about antiques and items from the other realms.

The giantess Xekkrus meanwhile was actually a neighboring chieftess with her own tribe. They were a different breed of giants than what you knew from the nomadic pillagers you knew about. Much larger and stronger.
>>
>>5242151
She was curious about the ballsy midgets which you took advantage of took made some impressions on her. Only to quickly change your mind when you saw what she could do with a single light smack off a cliff and realized what would happen if you did try to sleep with her. You were just too weak...and tiny. You did find out some about the area at least. Apparently, everything was large and bountiful enough that giants could easily sustain themselves. So giant bastards like them are something you should expect to be the norm.

Monster Chieftess Zea is a rare breed indeed. Humanoid like monsters are rare. Enough of them grouped up to be considered a tribe? Rarer still. So you will admit you were curious and decided to take a pass at her considering your past experiences with monsters. Indeed it was easy you didn't even have to 'try' to bed her. The problem was that was where it ended. She did display interest in more 'encounters' in the future and eventually, you realized you got played. Of course, she wouldn't mind you coming back around. You offered yourself right up. She kept on avoiding the topic and buying time. You are confident given time you could crack her defenses.

Instead, you must admit she won this round...you severely underestimated her cunning and intelligence. You assumed she would be like the other less humanoid monsters. Big mistake.

>Monster Chieftess Zea is open to negotiations and courting
>Progeny control lost

Saving the best for last...and totally not because you wanted another round against another monster to make yourself feel better for getting played. You decided to look into the Monster Matriarch you heard about a while back. You know from the monsters they are high ranking and hold a special status among their kind. So meeting that matriarch was quite reminiscent of the old Monster Queen.

That interaction was the opposite of the monster chieftess. If it weren't a barely passing interest of yours you could have made a lot more progress. As the Matriarch was actually friendly and agreeable. Unsurprisingly this led to you bedding her and her welcoming you back anytime and for closer relations even. Over all you couldn't believe how different those two experiences were. What is strange though is why are all the other monsters so scared shitless of her...you cannot help but feel like your missing something rather important but that would require more time and action digging into this.

Other offspring are under the control of their Mother's faction. Meaning assuming they survive early childhood you will gain the opportunity to take some of them back.

Did we not get results from the hunt?

>>5242229
...Shit I did forget.

Apparently, I owe you a fate point for that. Oops.

Hunting results were average for someone of your ability. Which given the new dangers and your inexperience meant the results were not good at all.

Floating Island.

Homeland Established(technically you can move your dynasty but given how you are a symbiotic supporter...eh not a good idea your better off bonding with other factions and mooching off their own bonuses). Not to mention if they die you won't so long as you spread to multiple factions.

Currently, there are two factions.

Rage Demon Tribe and your Dynasty. Synergy detected. So they will be treated differently as one faction.

Tech Level: Early Stone Age
Development Level: Early Stone Age
Population: Small
Members: Outcast(Majority), slaves(medium), Monsters(minority), Undead(minority
Military: Raiders(veteran). Monsters(green). Undead(green).
Governance: Chieftess Zixrathmorath. Symbiotic Dark Dynasty Consort (UNNAMED)
Infastructure: Tents

Resources and food have been exhausted from the migration. Raiders are being dispatched to raid. Monsters and undead are sent to hunt. Slaves were ordered to forage and build. Zixra has left to go raiding.

You meanwhile have chosen to train in your martial arts. Realizing too much shit around here can resist magic and you don't wanna get fucked the next time you encounter one. With everyone gone or busy though. Not as much progress as you would like but there are enough undead and some veteran slave guards that you do have some sparring partners at least to make some good progress.

In addition to studying that you are curious about the magic vents and whether or not the Broodmother egg would benefit from it. To be honest you have no idea how to hatch the thing and seem to not have been doing great under your care...I mean sure you don't think it has died or anything . Which you, fortunately, confirmed thanks to this. As the Broodmother egg started to absorb some of it. The issue was finding the right kind and the simple clue you have no idea what effect it will have on the egg. Seeing those vents you see other creatures are interested in them but you were smart and chose tiny ones to study.

Although you are curious about the ramifications of capturing and holding a big one...sadly that would require a very big fight. As those places are fiercely contested and defended.

Unfortunately, you got word that Kylevera lost the baby to stillbirth. That is going to come up often and will extend into childhood and even puberty too, unfortunately. As the healthcare is...nonexistent. Literally. It's why a high physique is so important early on since there is no way to compensate for weak health.

You are Chieftess Zixrathmorath. The Migration expended lots of resources you weren't counting on. Mainly thanks to the additional population that came from your consort's recruiting. You don't mind though I mean how the HELL did he even manage to recruit those monsters and walking corpses anyway? Especially the monsters. You can understand the outcasts at least. Thanks to that you had to leave early and go raiding. Which should have been fine. Since you have passed through these mountains plenty of times before with your raiders. Except for this time for some reason fate was against you.

First, the weather was terrible, and next, you ran into another Warband who happened to be old rival of yours. Naturally, a fight broke out. When that was over you ran into a fucking patrol. Dealt with the patrol but turned out survivors escaped and warned the places you were going to hit. So they were ready for you and had their defenses up. The worst part was you didn't have the resources to turn back or find someone else.

Overall a shit time. Maybe this is payback for your parents ganking that deity. You are definitely going to be late because of it. The good news is at least there is enough manflesh to keep you fed and the rest of the men are slowly growing less squeamish about it. You stare at those defenses and can feel your teeth itch.

Somehow you know...this isn't over. With how your luck is going your probably going to have a shit time on the way back too. Definitely gonna be running late. The question is how late and you cannot afford to be late. So Rushing in it is...and of course, they are expecting that.

Fuck. It is just not your day.

What do? Multiples may be taken at a smaller bonus.

By god if we can't train our magic, we're still going to do research related to that shit. Let's test out having Kylvera train her physique with us too, she needs a better one stop stillborn babies. We'll also probably have sweaty sex after which will hopefully result in a baby.
>>
>>5242280
It was that+shit roll on the baby's physique. So instakill. Kids with low physiques also tend to die unless they are lucky. In terms of adults low physique is usually not a holdover from childhood since the odds of living that long ain't great. Most likely you got hurt or sick ect. For her babymaking is not easy.
>>
>>5242291
Ok scratch the Kylvera part then. With Zixra and Kylvera is there a random chance each turn they get pregnant? Also how old are our kids? Old enough to get taught shit yet?
>>
>>5242295
Depends on the modifiers and turn length. For Zixra for most turns, she is pregnant and giving birth off and on. It's just most will die so I won't bother stating it. Zixra is very fertile thanks to her high Physique boost and being a horny rapist. Kylevera meanwhile has a very low physique so her odds of getting pregnant aren't good and will have a hard time giving birth. If you improved your own physique and hers of course this will change.

Since they are freaks they matured rapidly and are being educated by Zixra. Other kids are slower. In terms of age in human years they are about 4-6 about to turn 6-8. Zixra and many other females you have negotiated with will only pass them off at around 10 to you. Of course you can choose to be more involved in their upbringing if you wish. This is actually a very important trait in-game as it determines the personality traits and other things of your descendents. Think Crusader King when you are desperately trying to find someone with good skills and personality traits to mentor them.

Your other offspring from the other females are being taken care of and they are also busy getting pregnant and birthing more children. However, the same issue is that many will die and they won't give up all their offspring to you. Only a portion of them. Improving relations with them is not a bad idea. Especially if you don't wanna get screwed in what descendants they will give you. As you generally got a really shitty deal with the terms you got and them being so much stronger a position. Of course, in time it will somewhat improve since the symbiosis benefits are going to convert them slowly but...well that doesn't mean they aren't going to try and keep the advantage or hold back the better descendants for themselves.

While it's true you can dump a lot of management onto your partners. You DO need to manage said partners and your actual descendants. As in fight to get the good ones and make more. You did make some new fuck buddies but they are kinda busy raping your dynasty up the ass. Only Zixra is bothering to apply lube first.

Kylevera chooses to mainly focus on the physical training. Congrats for introducing her to the monster training regimen you horrible horrible man. I'm not saying it ain't effective but damn with her low ass stats...just ouch.
------
You choose to train in martial arts and physical. While the girl you brought along was only interested in the physical training. You took part in the martial arts too. TWICE THE BURN BABY! When she inevitably couldn't continue you took a break to investigate the undead hordes and magic vent research. On top of more good old fashion babymaking it. Although at that point it was more like fucking a dead fish or a corpse given her condition.

The undead hordes you notice seemingly have no pattern to their migrations and yet others seem to have patrols and patterns in their movements. While many of the hordes are completely mindless plenty of hordes still possess some intelligent undead gathering among them. Usually hiding among their mindless brethren. At first you couldn't figure out what it was that was bothering you so much about them.

Until one day it hit you. You had it backwards all along. The undead...it wasn't the fresh undead following the hordes it was the hordes FOLLOWING the fresh undead. To be more specific the undead hordes would sense the death and move over. The new undead would then be absorbed into the horde passing by. By doing this the undead were actually...scrubbing away and absorbing all the harmful miasma, resenment, and accelerating the decay. They were actually a completely natural part of the wilderness and it shocked you badly.

It made you curious about what was making the normally mobile undead unwilling to move from certain spots if they were cleaning up the wilds and speeding up the natural decaying process.

>Discovered Nomadic Undead Factions
>Discovered Hordes of Decay Disaster

Next was experimenting with the egg and mana vents. You were shocked at how adaptable that egg was. Fire mana? Okay. Water mana? Fine. Ice Mana? Chill. Nature Mana? Weee. It could handle most you threw at it. Only a few it didn't like for example necrotic mana. No likey at all. Yet for some reason no matter how much it was exposed it didn't really seem to...grow much, it DID adapt. Maybe it needs to soak in them? Probably you should find an actual expert for this. Maybe a monster would know the answer...

"OOh not everyday I find someone with a Broodmother egg much less one who isn't a monster and who is trying to kill it," whispers a waspy voice from behind you. Causing you to leap and roll out of the way. Looking behind you...don't see anything.

"What? Didn't expect to spied on when you spied on us first?" Continues the voice cackling this time from above. Looking up you don't see anything.

"I didn't mean any offense by it."

"Oh, really breather? Someone as weak and sheltered as you...doesn't belong here," it hisses from the right next to the egg. Making you realize you left it behind.

"SHIT," you scream noticing that it's some kind of wraith.

"Nuh uh fresh meatbag," states the wraith. "Why torment this creature? If the monsters knew what you were doing they would have your head."

"...That bad?"

"...You didn't know?" Asks the wraith puzzled.

"I'm trying to figure out how to hatch it."

"... It's a BROODMOTHER literally in the name!" Points out the shocked Wraith. "That is basic knowledge. Any monsters organized into broods, swarms, families, and hives would all know."

"So a Monster Matriarch would know?"

"Well yes obviously...wait you stink of death and of monsters. Yet also of...life? No...hm been dead too long to remember that last one."

"Sex." You kindly remind him.

"Ah...right don't remember what that is."

"So why stop me?"

"Because a tormented and dead Broodmother egg attracts and enrage monsters. If you want to adjust its adaption it needs to soak properly you fool. Even a ghost like me remembers that."

"Which you don't want because of the passing undead hordes."

"Very good. Turns out your brain isn't too tiny after all."

"...Mind giving me the egg back?"

"No."

"... It's my egg."

Next time don't try to kill next to my fucking horde you prick."

"Hey, I knew when it was dying!"

"Yet not when it was in distress. Now please leave before I change my mind."

"...I want my egg back."

"Do you have a monster to vouch for you? Otherwise no."

"...You are being a real dick."

"Don't have one asshole."

"...How am I supposed to find you get my fucking egg back?"

"You know the Dead Tongues so just as for Wraith Lord Aborath at a horde for directions."

"Fine...say since you are here how about we continue my tests?"

"...What?"

"I mean you know when it's too far right? Well, you can be the safety net can't you?"

"...You want me to be an accessory to your crimes."

"Yeah, it's for...research purposes."

"...well not like I have anything better to do," admits the wraith lord with a shrug before floating along. "So what's your next idea."

"Any idea how a Broodmother egg reacts to Lightning?"

"...Zap Bugs?"

"OOOH, that IS a thing after all!"

"I mean last I remember yeah."

"To a lightning vent!"

"...How do you plan to NOT get zapped by the way?"

"Well, that is what I have you for now isn't it?"

"...Touche skeleton in a fresh meatsuit touche."

That is how you met your new bored sometimes assistant Wraith Lord Aborath. Turns out that once you get to know him he's a pretty cool dude. I mean a bit edgy and very bored. It turns out that not having a physical body AND being dead is extremely helpful. Especially for research purposes. You would be lying if you said you weren't jelly as fuck.

>>5242351
I say it's better if we just start making a writing language, but also taking care of and educating our demon-childs, so when we are soon to die we tell them all our father told us and pass our mission. Also because I don't want them to be raping savages like their mothers, or not so much
>>
>>5242372
Yeah, I don't know if we can stop them from becoming rape savages with the mother they have. If we want to groom a not-rape heir most likely going to have to be from Kylvera or another orphan. Our options are pretty hostile.

>>5242369
Meanwhile during the raid. A certain unlucky raider band slams into the defenders after fierce fighting manages to break through. Routing the fleeing warriors and rounding up the wounded.

"Well well well," hisses Zixrathmorath looking down at the wounded warriors while licking her lips. "Hm...I'm hungry. I'm pissed. You are some unlucky bastards to catch me in a bad mood. Luckily most of you aren't going to survive anyway with the wounds you have so I'm gonna have some fun. Whoever tells me want I know first gets to go quick. Otherwise enjoy the show before it's your return."

"Fuck you demonic cunt, the Gods will smite you down someday," spits a dying warrior who was spewing blood and with his organs leaking.

"I guess you're first and believe me they already tried. My mother gave me a taste of his soul, wish I could have also sampled his flesh. Ah well, I had to settle for some demigod flesh instead. Tasted damned good. Was a gift for my firstborn pregnancy," she murmurs dreamily while dragging him out before the rest before lighting a fire to cauterize his wounds and bringing out her toys. "Now tell me oh so 'brave' warriors. How much of a man are you when raped by a woman eh? HAHAH...ah I wish those Vishka are with me. So much more entertaining to watch them work. Great show. I gotta remember to invite them next time...it just ain't the same without them." She sniffles in mock disappointment savoring the screams of agony and weeping.

Only to briefly stop when a raider comes back to report.

"How's the loot?" She asks.

"...They moved most of it since they got a warning. Evacuated a lot of people too."

"Sacrifice it is then. Might as well get some benefit out of this. Hopefully, their souls and blood are worth something," complains Zixra. "Already sent out the raiders to chase them down?"

"Yup. Should catch them but it's likely they will be joining another tribe and combining their forces."

"Ugh they're wising up, this is why I didn't want to rush things. Didn't have the time to grab any allies," she grumbles.

"They cannot cover as much ground as us as quickly Chieftess we'll catch them and we'll loot."

"Just grab whatever. Can't destroy the tribes unless we want no more tribes to pillage anymore. Remember that." She orders."Now how did that damned ceremony go mother taught me?"

The raid did eventually bring back loot and slaves but not without cost. There was much resistance the raiders were exhausted as they finally returned. With a wornout and frustrated Zixrathmorath heading straight home to see her babies. Then she instead found an unusual sight that made her take pause as she took it in.

"So the Legions of demons from the Hells and the Heavenly Armies clashed in the endless Battlefield between worlds over a dispute after a hole was opened in the river of souls. With the Archdemon Berseth was slain by the Celestial General Sidriel," finishes her consort upon noticing her return and the twins dashing into waiting arms.
>>
>>5242393
"I...I hadn't expected to see you here," confesses Zixra. "Much less...telling stories to our children.

"Not stories. History." Says the twin and finishes the second.

"Oh really now," she questions gazing right at you.

"Ah well just some things I was told when I was a child myself," you admit trying to brush it off.

"Well...how about I tell you another story this time about how Arch Demon Berseth was before he became an Archdemon and his path to power thus how to avoid his mistakes," begins Zixra carrying the twins back over. "It begins in the Hells under the reign of Demon King Ozoki."

"...Wait you know about Berseth," you mutter under your breath as you also sit down to listen with your children to her story that you suspect was not actually a story at all.

It didn't make any sense for that to require an entire action devoted to it.

After the storytime and some personal lovemaking you were laying in bed with Zixrathmorath. Both naked and recovering your breath on top of the furs so stained she stopped replacing them since there was no point in ruining good ones for no reason.

"...I must admit I am surprised you chose to get involved with the children." She finally confesses.

"you mean our little demon children?" You tease.

"Hm," she simply smiles at that. "To be more accurate yes and no. I had to get my mother to help stabilize their condition. Sadly I am lacking half the solution."

"Not full blown demons?" You question.

"They will be someday," she admits. "It will likely take a very long time though hopefully."

"...You don't want them to become demons."

"...It is a miserable and agonizing process," she slowly and painfully admits. "Born demons...they are lucky. Same with the converted ones. The unlucky ones...slowly turn. Bit by bit. Your very humanity devoured away. Among my siblings I was one of the unlucky ones."

"How so?"

"Because my soul is slowly being demonized. Some of my siblings were lucky and weren't born with the Black Blood of our father. They were able to resist the effects. I could not," she explains rubbing her chest. "My soul flame...is slowly being burnt away and corrupted. One day it become fully demonic. On that day I will be reborn a true demon or faster if my mortal coil is slain according to my mother."

"...I had no idea," you console her giving her a hug.

"That is why...I couldn't bare for those children to come to harm and how deeply it pains me what their future is. At least thanks to your blood they have a fighting chance to resist it...or al least they would if only I knew how to utilize it...but you are merely a monster blood and demonic monsters aren't about to share those kinds of secrets. Especially when it comes to fixing their condition."

"..." You didn't know what to say about that. Especially with how you had perhaps misjudged her.

She changes the topic. "I must admit I am surprised at how you suddenly became interested in childcare what changed if I may ask?"

"When I was around their age as a child I would listen to the stories of my old man. I merely wished to do the same for them," you admitted to her reminiscing about the past.

"I see I hadn't realized and assumed you um..."

"Wasn't interested?"

She had the decency to look ashamed. "I mistook you for being like many others. Those who bed many females tend not to be very interested in the upbringing of their children especially when they are so young still."

"...Well its not like you ladies make it easy for me you know," you tease. "Otherwise...well men in such positions of power tend to approach a more quantity based approach as you pointed out...but remember I'm not like that. I prefer to choose a certain subset of powerful men to offer myself to like yourself. If I wanted to wouldn't I have spent time fucking all those sex slaves you have all over the damned place?"

"...I am NOT getting rid of the sex slaves, and you really need to start fucking more of them," she begins but you interrupt.

"Don't change the topic. What I am trying to point out is like you I am interested in investing in my offspring and I am willing to concede in many matters in order for that to happen. I am not like those men. I might be a manwhore but I at least care about you and my children."

"...A shame the two of are just too damned horny and promiscuous huh? Couldn't resist the temptation of fucking around otherwise, we could be like those other in love and monogamous couples," teases Zixra.

"Hah my sister gave me shit about that too you remember that?"

"...Oh yeah she didn't she...a shame fate didn't play out differently for us."

"Yeah she said something funny about you and your feelings but I never saw a damn thing about it...as for myself well...circumstances didn't allow for it."

"Same here...same here...you know she was right about that."

"About what?"

"My feelings for you. Took awhile for it to clear up but by then it was already too late. Not like it mattered given what I was also like of course."

"...I had no idea do you perhaps-"

"Would it matter?"

"..."

"As for you wishing to get close to children with women like myself...they are not used to such an approach. Either powerful studs or devoted losers. You are a bit of an oddball in that regard."

"So no advise then?"

"Isn't it obvious? How would they know if YOU don't TELL them," she states smacking you on the head.

"Oh right."

Its the norm of the era and the factions you are associated with. Pillaging=raping and looting. Tribal warfare kill the men and rape the women ect. Even slavery is a norm.

You continue training your physique and martial arts with Kylevera. Although Kylevera is too weak to join in with the martial arts as she recuperates from the physical training instead. This time at least you were able to catch Zixra who was willing to help train with you. She particularly seemed more interested in your physique development as she...poorly kept her horniness in check but surprisingly conceded that martial arts were good to practice giving your weaknesses and the number of magically resistant foes around here. As a result, Kylevera was unable to escape from the sweaty post workout threesomes.

During that time you headed over to visit with the monster chieftess Zea in order to ask for some favors. You knew what it was going to cost so you already started stripping.

"...Wow didn't even have to ask and yet you still came back for more," she mutters shocked while admiring the view.

"...You going to hurry up so we get this over with or not?" You point at her hide clothing.

"Fine fine. Not like I'm about to deny a booty call after all this time. I could use another one," she agrees to strip and starts.

"Now bend over."

"Ooh angry what's with you? Upset I fooled you huh? Then why come back for another round?"

"...You are aware of just how dumb other monsters are right?"

"Point taken," she nods in agreement and soon your task was finished.

"So what is it that you want?" She asks as you both get dressed.

"I need a favor. How do you counter demonic blood affliction in a monster and what do you know of Broodmothers?"

"...That is a tough question. No wonder you wanted to ask me," she states scratching her head in thought before sitting down on her used bed. "Let me think...well in most cases it depends on which is stronger. The monster or the demon part. If it's the monster the problem solves itself. If not they simply become demonic."

"What if it's not then what can be done?"

"Then your probably fucked," she notes shrugging. "If that weren't the case there wouldn't be nearly so many demonic monsters and beasts you know. Goddamn demons know how bad their afflictions are why do you think they love spreading it so much?"

"You got nothing huh? What about the debts you monsters owe me? Surely you have a solution."

"...We owed you and you STILL put out for me? What the fuck...just how dumb are you?" She asks baffled. "More importantly why not ask thos-oh that's why you wanted me." She stops suddenly remembering. "I guess you're not as dumb as I thought after all."

"As far as I know it CAN...potentially be treated but only really powerful and rare monsters who specialized in the right kind of magicks and could afford the losses to practice would know. Like the damned swarmers."

"Aren't they dumb as hell though?"

"Yeah, that is the funny thing about those other monsters. Most of them are dumb but the ones who aren't? They are really damned smart. No fucking middle ground with them," she explains.
>>
>>5242459
"This is especially the case for the really retarded buggers like the swarms. Why do you think everyone is scared shitless of Swarm Leaders?"

"How does that help exactly?"

"I'm getting to that. You see if they didn't have a solution since they rely upon quantity instead of quality demon hexes would fuck their shit up. So they had to figure out a cure. They would know."

"...You think you can help me with that?"

"Fuck no. I ain't suicidal. Those buggers are ravenous retarded assholes and the ones who aren't are even worse."

"Would a broodmother egg count?"

"Eh...Broodmothers are weird. Kinda both? Sort of. You see some monsters have fertility problems. Some monsters have large packs. Some mobilize in large broods and they all ain't like the swarmers or behave similarly to them. Especially when riled up. Everyone adores them though. Won't find a more maternal monster....wait why are you so sweaty of all sudden?"

"It's...nothing. Are they super popular?"

"Extremely. Even my kind like them. Shit, you won't find a monster who doesn't. Broodmother nests are THEE places to go for monsterkind. When riled up though...oh man. Broods are angry and ravenous combine that with the Broodmother peculiar abilities and pretty good. Best of all they aren't as extreme or hardcore. Actually downright mellow until riled up."

"So how rare are they?"

"Practically extinct sadly. You gotta understand Broodmothers are one of the few kinds of monsters that can bring other monsters together. You only ever see them deep in the hearts of Monster Motherlands. They're close with the Cult of the Mother of Monsters and their mothers as living agents. Basically, think of them as...uh priestesses? Shamans? Something like that."

"So they're neutral then."

"Only when it comes to monsterkind."

"How would you hatch a broodmother egg then?"

"PFFT, you don't. Broodmother eggs react only in places of intense safety, life, blessed by the mother of Monsters herself, or when kin to her calls. Surprisingly tough though. I did hear there is one last solution but I don't know what it is exactly."

"...Great just great. So anyway I can call in my debts to help with the demonic blood problem?"

"Of course, I mean assuming you owe enough so exactly how many favors are you calling in?"

You tell her what you have been doing for the monsters ever since you fell into debt with them and never actually stopped paying even after paying it off since you wanted them to owe you.

"...Yeah that would definitely cover it I would think," she nods in shock. "I mean...wow. No wonder you were saving up huh? Getting those swarm bitches to move ain't easy but I think that would do it alright. I'll ask around."

"Would it work though?"

"In the dumb ones certainly the issue is those who are smart enough to ponder the big questions 'is this right or wrong'. When that happens I'm afraid it's much harder to purge because demonic feeds off that conflict. So... I don't know if it will for certain."

>>5242467
After that came the hardest task you have ever encountered. Worse than facing off the Hydra. Even exploring these damned mountains. It was convincing all your baby mammas and getting them to agree to let all your children attend a magic lesson together in one place. Honestly, you didn't think you could get to go for it. You knew how they viewed you. How things usually work out with 'valuable' and 'subpar' mates. Why limit yourself after all or hang on to dear life to what you could get. The fact that you conceded and then only to come back insisting to be a part of the upbringing process and childcare was a realization they struggled to accept. It took a lot...of convincing and many pillow talks before they finally wrapped their head around the idea. That despite being a manwhore you actually DID care about your children and wanted to be there. This deeply confused them and they didn't really believe it until they saw it with their own eyes and confirmed it for themselves.

That was how your baby mommas all met each other for the first time AND your children met their siblings. All at the same time. To say you were a nervous wreck would be a vast underestimate. You know what you did was completely unprecedented. It was one thing to be an uncaring stud, to maintain a harem, or to be a devoted lover. Which is how it usually played out. That was how you taught your children basic magical knowledge and even some bedtime stories while their mothers watched, chatted, and got to know each other. Then you and the mothers...had your own 'fun' and discussions. Sometimes they were willing to share you at the same time and other times they wanted you to themselves. You knew better and just rolled with it.

As a result of your actions relations to all mothers and their factions have been greatly improved.
Increased access to all offspring granted.
You may directly interfere with their upbringing and assign mentors to them if you so choose.
Symbiosis with all upgraded.
Dark Chieftess Illona is now a true Head. Access to Faction acquired. leadership boosts attained.
Keeper Meverra is now a true Head. Access to Faction acquired. leadership boosts attained.
Naga Lady Tizisha has promoted your bonds. Strengthening its connection.
Kylevera is buffed and gains additional benefits(gonna need recheck/work on how actual dynasty members should be affected compared to outsiders)
Monster Chieftess Zea wishes to deepen your relationship and enter a pact with you. Access and shares of offspring gained.
Monster Matriarch Rixia offers formal status as consort. Pledges resources. Desires to enter a pact. Offers to treat Demonic Affliction.
Relations improving among all factions affiliated with you among themselves.
Personal relations among children improving.
Baby Mammas relations with you improved.
Reputation gained.
Word has spread.
Children gain magic proficiency.
Increased chance of potential partners pursuing you.

...I hope I'm not forgetting anything important. See what happens when you perform an action within your dynasty's strengths? Also, I will admit that was a VERY good idea. Especially using an action on it. So much so I am grateful there wasn't much of a bonus due to too many actions being done at the same time. Otherwise...oh man the bonus would have been insane.

What do? Multiples may be taken at a smaller bonus.

I really need to redo the action formatting bit tricky when it's limited to the Founder still since there really aren't enough family members to excuse splitting up the Dynasty action from a personal action yet. A work in progress. I'm thinking about it.

Oh right before I forget.

Rage Demon Tribe Action. Raiding.
Dungeon Action. Construct Defenses.
Dark Tribe Action. Hunting.

You can only acquire detailed information from Rage Demon Tribe since you have a base there. If you want more info from those partnered factions then you will need to actually station and build stuff there. So right now you're getting fucked by a lack of family members, followers, and resources to do things with. Otherwise, you will be able to offer even more buffs and gain more goodies from them.

Your splitting is making it take forever. The orphan is making more progress than you despite the penalties because she is focusing on just 1.

>>5242518
Dynasty modifiers are the biggest reason. In terms of stay at home dads the issue is the potential threat to their power and whoremongering of the males which creates competition to their own progeny. As a stud who gives a shit about his kids you allow them horde resources for their own kin and to ensure interaction with father in addition to sexual services.

Of course, this is the premise that they do not seek monogamy or your kids grow up to eliminate each other. This is partially resolved via tribal mating habits(see no civilized courting) and your progeny actually being owned via Maternally VS paternally. Meaning inheritance is passed down by the mother. Meaning they won't get shit from killing each other since the other mothers won't give up their resources to children whom they didn't sire.

basically, it's a lack of refinement in family building and the fact that you(as the MC is male) are currently aligning himself with the Matriarchal who wants a man who won't oppose their power structure. So it's complicated. You can thank being in the stone age and having multiple species who may or may not have special bloodlines or breeding requirements(like not even having males for example). So fucking complicated.

Just be grateful it hasn't turned into an actual harem. Then you would discover the true horrors of endless intrigue and hellish infighting.

Monster blooded so monstrous sized cock and he has magic. He is also 'very' attractive for normally hostile factions and dark forces. Opposite for others. Basically pretty eerie looking. Also has a lot of scars vast majority of which came from lovemaking(they do not play nice) and the rest mainly from training accidents mainly magic. His actual combat and hunting scars are practically nonexistent.

Dude actually looks surprisingly intimidating and one scary mofo until you realize it all came from him getting fucked and magic accidents. Until you realize that said magic can also blow you up and the fucking was surviving snu snu with some VERY dangerous females that should have killed you. A certain demonic maneating horny rapist taught you well how to survive such 'affections' from a very early on. Pro tip it's gonna be a very common problem and theme in your dynasty. The lovers of your dynasty are...very dangerous and generally terrible terrible creatures. Basically your dynasty is the kinda people who can sleep with the monsters, demons, and villains who killed all their past mates/lovers yet live to brag about it while enjoying their devoted company.

They make bards look like a bunch of pussies. Why limit yourselves to neolithic pussy anon when you can find, seduce, and plow the biggest, most dangerous, villainous, strongest, and deadly pieces of ass you can find? That is more or less the family business. Whores and waifus not just for heroes and protags.
>>5242540
Your martial arts sucked so you made progress there. The issue is your physique is not weak and with the buffs you have to it takes a lot to further upgrade it. Even Zixra was having a hard time upgrading her body until she met the monsters through you.

>>5242795
I have hinted at which civilizations are the most advanced. In truth though everyone is a bunch of backward primitive savages. As for actual elves and dwarfs. Something to keep in mind is technically you all are the 'ancient progenitor and ancestors' of those species. Right now in terms of species you are in a very awkward place atm since none of it has really stabilized since you are all literally that 'new'. Obviously, some groups are going to develop faster than others. As for actual civilization building...eh I wouldn't get your hopes up when it comes to mammals. Even the older ones like elfs,dwarfs, or even giants.

Art is totally doable. I mean shit even cavemen had cave paintings and carvings. Developing actual written language is gonna be a pain in the ass. Keep in mind just how incredibly primitive you are right now. If you want an easier time unlocking techs you need to develop accordingly first and especially get those prereqs taken care of.

So you say we find the biggest, meanest, and evilest genitalia around and we fuck it and teach it family values? Also, we are probably going to create so many villains that would otherwise not exist due to their parents being BBEGs and dying without offspring/creating weak offspring.

Also, we need to create the first language possibly using blood as inc, skin/carapace as paper, and the language could be as simple as symbols representing words pressed down using teeth or 40k orc hieroglyphics. Get something simple and develop it from there.

I'm not gonna count getting the demon taint treated since that is more of getting another faction to help you and thus their action, not yours(isn't mooching off allies great because your a supporter)
The same is true for telling your kid stories. No way that is very time consuming and difficult action.
I mean getting your baby mammas to play nice and your kids together so you can teach them magic lessons? Yeah, that makes sense to be an action. Not storytelling though that would be bullshit.

This means...oh my. 1 Entire turn devoted to physique improvement. Check out these HUGE GAINZ.

You realize that splitting your focus between martial arts and physique training. Is taking forever to improve your physique enough so that the magic training ban is lifted. So instead you chose to devote yourself to it. To the pain. The misery. Leaving nothing but you and your body's improvement. You decided that for once you would do nothing but train your body so that you would be tough enough to train your magic(again) and better survive the affections of females.

For that reason, you threw yourself at the nonexistent mercies of the monsters and went all out. Doing nothing but training. Your only breaks being storytime with your children or the increasingly eager lovemaking with the ladies whose gazes kept on lingering more and more as your training progressed.

Thanks to that you were actually around more and noticed things. Like actually getting paid for your services thanks to Madam Kylevera who is making sure you get pimped properly and compensated. How your...popularity was rising. Even stuff relating to how to manage a tribe and bloodlines. Turend out Zixra was not as dumb as she appears and thanks to having spare time when recuperating from your training. You actually got to see how she managed her tribe, family, and the Bazk Dynasty.
>>
>>5243199
Zixrathmorath for her many flaws. Did at least understand the fact that her family was indeed a bunch of horny rapists too. Especially since her parents dumped responsibility on her and ran away shortly after she got knocked. They have been barely back since. Leaving her to manage the family affairs. Combine that with your own whorish ways and the small size of the tribe. Zixra soon noticed a problem in terms of a tiny genepool that was about to be flooded via demonic cum and ocean pussy juice around a certain manwhore.

Thanks to slaving and raping followed by asking around. She noticed a pattern emerging. Clashing bloodlines did bad things. Inbreeding did bad things too. Lineage and personal capacity were ultimately limited. She already made the mistake of assuming her mother would keep an eye out for incest with the twins and had to learn that lesson the hard way. Realizing this however she chose to take two birds with one stone.

Capture slaves and steal their bloodlines to add to their own. Thereby suppressing inevitable blood bottlenecking and refreshing the genepool. It would have worked fine until the migraine inducing monsters and others showed up who had their own breeding strategies.

"Do you have ANY idea how annoying it is to deal with fuckers who literally have NO women or men of their own?" Zixra would complain to you one day.

"Now I love my Vishka bitches. They are all female and their strong and angry but they also demand a lot of outside men since they can't make any of their own. That isn't even getting into like some damned parasitic breeding monsters who sacrifice people to boost their own population. Admittedly demons are also included in that."

"...So get more people?"

"How? So are you aware of how long it takes us to breed and raise a child? We aren't like those fucking scaly assholes or bugs. I can only cover so much ground and raid so many people. I will admit you have been very...helpful in certain matters but annoying in others. My family has been slaving long enough and alive long enough that we noticed certain patterns. Some bloodlines don't play nice with each other. Certain actions drastically increase odds of...problems like what happened with our firstborn."

"The monster and demonic blood."

"Exactly. You are...well very attractive and I need slaves to keep everyone from killing each other by bribing them with dick and pussy. While killing off all the weak I can and using the strength to gather more. The issue is I'm running into the problem of prey shortages. I simply can't keep hitting the same people over and over again. Hence why I first came here. Which worked at first but I underestimated just how...'good' you are at making friends."

"Wait how is this MY fault?"

"How many monsters have you been fucking?"

"How am I supposed to remember?"

"My point exactly. Not to mention others who are showing up. You are good to bribe my raiders and friends with yeah but that raises the resource demands."
>>
>>5243215
"Now that is one thing. We can all get food and materials. The issue is mates and manpower. You've been fucking all the monsters who are normally limited by you guessed it lacking mates. Their population is exploding and that is putting more strain on the amount of manpower. Manpower just doesn't 'appear' it needs time to grow up or be taken from elsewhere."

"...So you don't want me to sleep around?"

"What I'm saying is we are ahead of schedule. Thanks to you I got monsters. A lot of monsters. There are also others who want to establish themselves and have special requirements. They all need a cut and are...very hungry. Desperate. Don't take no for an answer right?"

"..."

"Well right now I am buying time with slaves but bloodlines are clashing and frankly we are running out of damned slaves already. Inbreeding will be a problem soon enough."

"Already?"

"Horny rapists and someone sticks his dick in anything. Thankfully I made some arrangements. We simply have to be more...even more aggressive. kill off more weaklings and claim more blood. The tricky part is keeping it all balanced. I'm attracting new warriors and talents who want to establish themselves and they want a share. Not to mention our children are growing older. Soon they too will want mates and resources. We need to make sure they have enough when they're old enough."

...You just realized the problem. There was now too much competition and not enough resources to horde everything for her progeny and she is worried about it.

"So you want to expand big deal."

"The big deal you moron is...care to guess how many descendants our dynasties both have and how many are actually under our control? Now, how long before they start fucking each other? You saw what happened with just our firstborn and that was BEFORE incest," she hisses at you.

"...Point taken."

"So we need fresh blood smartass. The issue is others are also experiencing a population boom and...even if we expand what we can take is limited. So we need to kill off the unworthy and hoard what is left. So we need to choose some juicy targets. The problem is new factions and noteworthy figures who have emerged. Unexpected wild cards."

"...Ah you want to go warpath."

"By necessity," she nods in affirmation. "I will be striking hard and fast with some allies to push the old tribes away and unify them. This will hopefully create an opening for new blood to come in that we can then pillage for fresh blood again. We need to move fast though."

"Why?"

"Do you want to know the other reason why I moved here?"

"????"

"Our old home was quiet and weak because it was a wound of the world that was healing. This place isn't and its growth or to be more precise healing. Soon all those 'safe places' will be gone and it will be as dangerous as this. Until then we need to prey upon as many as we can as quickly as we can. Sadly our own slow breeding and recuperation are biting us on the ass."
>>
>>5243237
"So to take advantage of it while we still can and before others start to realize this fact. The only problem is we will be making lots of enemies and the more weaklings we kill off the better."

"Sounds like more of you problem than me problem."

"...You did want offspring, yes and to get them families right? Well, how are going to do that huh wiseass?"

"I'm not exactly picky."

",,,"
------
Your firstborn was taken to see a Monster Matriarch Rixia under escort by their grandmother and you tagged along to see it through.

"...Haven't seen you in a while." You noted.

"Ah well I was having fun...but trying to activate their monstrous side huh? Hm hm hm. Finally doing something right. I can't tell you how pleased I was when I first found out."

"...Really now?"

"Well, of course, I thought it would be the twins who managed it first but nope you gave me quite the pleasant surprise and now they will soon be old enough to spread their wings and sow their wild seeds yes?"

"...I don't like where this is going."

"Don't be like that. I'm their grandmother and I just so happen to be interested in who you have in mind for them if anyone. I know some who would be interested."

"Demons I presume."

"Or monsters if you had your way," she counters.

"Can we save this for later?"

"Fine."

The Monster Matriarch did indeed have a solution and the spell was a long one but not too long. It was mainly draining and painful. Basically driving the monster side into overdrive to oppose the demonic affliction and try to counter it. The issue was sad with the children themselves or to be more precise. The evil within their own hearts. If the evil was too great it wouldn't be able to cure them or even hard drive it back. Making you regret not coming sooner when they were younger and more innocent. Hopefully, it would have been more successful.

"I did what I could," Rixia informs you handing you one and the grandmother the other twin. "Corruption flows into the flesh and blood. Sunk deep into Soul and bone. I was able to enhance the monster side...made them like my kind but also like the demons. Their form is now stable and strong. Very strong. Monster blood and demon blood flow thickly in them. Their soul spark also burns very brightly." She appraises.

"...I am not sure what you are getting at," you inquire.

"What she means is they are little monsters who will grow up to be very big and strong," answers their grandmother with a very happy purr. "Hm I knew you were the right one all along...make more of them with my daughter now will you?"

"...Really?"

"Why not?" She asks.

"Maybe I don't want them to all be born frigging demons or monsters huh?"

"..."

"..."

You realize you say this before a monster and demon considering your taste in lovers...you cannot help but blush in embarrassment and shame. "Uh what I mean is that um...variety is...no I mean I want them to be healthy yes healthy that's it."

Storytime with the kids.

With the improved relations with your baby mammas. It wasn't hard to get them to agree to spare time from your lovemaking to let you tell stories to your children. Just as the old man and monster queen did with you. After all that was all that you were asking for so they happily agreed(before having you to themselves). Letting you get a better grasp of your children according to their mothers and a glimpse of how they were being raised.

At least your kids know you love them even if it's clear who holds the reigns in the interactions. At the same time, it enables you to develop a closer bond with them and pass on some knowledge to warn them about what's out there. Then some of your kids had the bright idea of asking you just how many 'siblings' they had...that had you stumped. I mean...you don't really know. Like at all.

In fact, most children you sired aren't even associated with your dynasty at all. That has slowly been improving but it's a slow process of improvement. They were claimed by their mothers and taken away. Some at least showed interest in setting roots down. Yet this process hasn't really changed that much. It only recently began improving as you have better communicated with the baby mommas and gotten closer to your children. You don't even have power among your dynasty descendants actually. All power and progeny are held by their mothers.

...what an embarrassing state of affairs.

Bazk Dynasty currently engaging in slaving and raping to loot bloodlines to empower their own.
Rage Demon Tribe is engaging in diplomacy with other factions to form a greater warband.

...Have you not noticed Zixra? She was all of that and more on top of being a horny maneating rampaging rapist. How did you miss that?
You have no idea how bad it's going to get anon. The problem is so much worse than you can imagine. Let me make example. Care to guess how many of those monsters you were fertilizing this entire time were Arachnea you know giant spider monsters who lay eggs and eat people? Guess how many egg clutches they have since laid and hatched thanks to you. Guess how many monsters have been thoroughly fertilized thanks to you.

The problem isn't so much as providing waifus to BBEG(that is actually the Top Tier problem and a mere single part). Another HUGE problem is your whoring by breeding all their goddamn minions for them. All those monsters whose recovery was SUPPOSED to be slowed due to (parasitic) breeding trait off (slow ass) mammals and predators of said intelligent mammals just overcharged turbo blazed into action.

Now you think that's bad enough right...right? Well that is just the start. You see the current bunch of villains is just trying to get themselves established and start their dark dynasties. Including other dark figures...well guess who is willing to plow and support every twisted cunt who so much as accidentally winks at him? Well gee maybe that ain't so bad...

Well except now all those twisted cunts are gathering together and concentrating among themselves for a very simple reason. Buffs. You see previously they could just find a worthy target to tap that ass and run. Doesn't matter if they wanted it or not...except now there are BUFFS on the table. Not only are there buffs on the table but slowly allies too. So suddenly they no longer want to leave anymore now do they? Instead they would rather stay and establish themselves. Entrenching their position.

There are minions arounds...BBEGs..and now elites.

You see the problem here now?

DO YOU SEE ANON! DO YOU SEE WHAT YOU FUCKERS DID! YOU DO SEE HOW THE PIECES CAME TOGETHER!

...So can you imagine the looks on those heroes faces when they run into an entire goddamn alliance of evil cunts?

What about those poor male villains who were supposed to have the advantage via harems and mass rapes to get a headstart lol...except now there is already an evil pussy alliance that is forming. This is just the first fucking generation. Goddamn.

I feel sorry for the heroes of these times. Already running into a villain alliance. Talk about fucking hard mode.

Like seriously. Keep that shit up and become a muscle wizard man.
-----
It was another round of INTENSE workouts and training with the monsters. You had Kylevera to keep you company and as an easy booty call within reach. Took breaks to accompany your kids when not slaying pussy and trying to stay on your baby mommas good side...goddamn do you have a lot of baby Mommas. Wasn't noticeable until you actually tried to be there for your kids but now...fuck no wonder so many dudes just went fuck it when they had a harem and focused only a few favorites.

You ain't like that though.

No no. You worked out with the muscles. Got the shit beat out of you by the monsters. Pimped yourself out and hung out with your kids. All in all a great and easy experience. Right up until Zixra showed up out of the blue one day with your eldest twins.

"Your turn now and yours to keep, also make sure to teach them well so they don't die in bed alright? My Mom apparently has some names in mind for matchmaking already...BYE NOW!" Just like that, she was gone after kissing them and having a goodbye fuck with you. She was off raiding.

For the first time...you were entirely alone with your children and expected to raise them. You could FEEL their little eyes boring into you and you felt a rising panic.

"...Kylevera HELP!" You thoughtfully walked out of sight first before screaming and running for aid. You weren't prepared for this.

"I don't see the problem," you finally find her working out and practicing her magic. You tell her about your situation. "Weren't you supposed to take them in when they got older? You have been active with your other kids and certainly prepared right."

"..."

"...Right?"

"...Please?" You beg her on hands and knees kissing her ass.

"...You can't be serious. First, you forget to CHARGE them for your whoring services AND you forget to prepare for your own fucking kids to be sent over? What the fuck are you even doing with your family?" Groans Kylevera as she face palms in frustration.

"Isn't that what I have you for though?" You seriously ask her.

"..." She just stares down at you completely and utterly speechless. "You...have no idea how much I am regretting this right now do you?"

"What am I supposed to do!" You beg her.

"...Is all that you think about with your fucking dick and magic?"

You are wise enough to not tell her the truth.

"Do you realize you have done absolutely NOTHING this entire time to buildup your dynasty but whore yourself and recruit followers a single time right? You weren't even getting PAID for the whoring until I showed up to manage things!" She screams at you.

"..."

"We don't even have a proper home! Literally just a fucking whorehouse! That's it! Your only other properties is a goddamn captive hydra and the 'gifts' from all your whoring. Yet NOW you want me to help clean up your mess yet AGAIN!" She shrieks at you.

"...I mean technically everything was being covered by my Sugar Mommies," you helpfully point out at the wrong time.

"..."

"...Just saying," you finish withering at her silent glare.

"...I quit."

"What...NO DON'T LEAVE ME!" You beg her grabbing onto her legs as she tries to walk away.

"FUCK OFF. SOLVE THIS PROBLEM YOURSELF!"

"I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!"

"HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW HUH? I ONLY RUN A GODDAMN WHOREHOUSE!" She points out.

That night you learned a valuable lesson. Those children can take care of themselves and the reason why your Baby Mommas insisted on waiting so long was so that they would be old enough to learn properly and not mind living in a whorehouse. In fact they learned an awful lot...which was probably the point.

Honestly I wanted to see if anyone would catch on and notice the clues.
Secondly I would consider redoing the action plans but that would require having more dynasty members to make it actually worth doing.

The issue with objectives is there might be different ones depending on the ambitions of the MC and leadership of the dynasty...except this dynasty has no leader. I'm still figuring out how that is gonna work exactly. You have 'heads' but those heads are not born members of the dynasty but are fucking someone who is and influences the dynasty.

No, you no nothing about architecture. The best you can make is mud huts and tents. Usually the MC just mooched off a woman for a place to stay....like pretty much always. The whorehouse is actually made of stone, bone, wax, and hide. It's very tough otherwise it would have long been destroyed.

>>5243577
You are wealthy. You literally never spend it because you mooch absolutely everything all the time. Like seriously you are actually the richest guy in the entire tribe hilariously enough. Mainly because you never spend it but still.
Also you suck at hunting because you so rarely hunt.

>>5243583
Already saw them while you were 'working' in the whorehouse. No, they do not respect you for it until they lose their virginities. That is when they will develop all new respect for their manwhore of a dad. Being a gigolo ain't easy when your fucking such deadly pieces of ass like that. All. The. Time. They have no idea how much shit he goes through, dangerous it is, and how hard he actually works.
The same is true for all your kids. If you think your cock is gonna impress them hate to break it to you anon but most of your kids' dicks are gonna grow bigger than their Dad's. Your family is being selected for 'high performance' after all.

"...Shouldn't you have asked the monsters on how to hatch this egg?" Asks the Wraith Lord.

"I did." You confirmed as you toss it into yet another vent. This one powerful enough to make the egg float in midair.

"And?"

"Well they told a me a lot but I just don't know man."

"...Really? Not even those monsters who raise broods don't know how to hatch a broodmother egg?"

"Yeah...wait monsters who raise broods?"

"Yeah you know big clutches. Batches. Like those swarm monsters."

"..." You stare at the wraith lord dumbly.

"...What?"

"Why haven't you said this ENTIRE fucking time!"

"...I thought it was common sense?"

"I know just the monster matriarch."

"You knew a monster matriarch this ENTIRE TIME?"

"...Maybe," you whisper.

"I am shocked you were willing to waste so much time considering your limited lifespan."

"How was I supposed to know fucking know?"

"Its a BROODmother? Which monsters raise BROODS you fucking dumbass."

The next visit you brought along the Brood Matriarch who brought along a swarm for her own protection as she didn't quite believe you when you claimed to have a Broodmother Egg. There you met with the wraith lord as well.

"...You were not kidding after all. To think that it was with YOU that the Broodmother egg went. I thought the had all been distributed ages ago with the Queen," clacks the Monster Matriarch Rixia.

"So you can hatch it?"

"Well of course I can," she confirms picking up the egg. "What an...amazing gift. I will see to it that you will be suitably compensated."

"Wait...what?"

"She cannot survive in your hands," she explains with a chitter. "Even when hatched. Broodmothers require...special tender and loving care. I can keep her alive and for her I will see to it our union is greatly strengthened. Heh that bitch Zixra thinks she is Alpha? She will soon see."

"...Wait that guy is your consort?" Asks the Wraith its jaw literally dropping to the floor.

"Yes...and?" Confirms Rixia.

"...Wow. I did not see that coming boy. I mean...how is he still alive exactly...didn't your kind um..."

"Eat our mates? Certainly except we have a bit of a...common history. A shared past if you will," explains Rixia to the Wraith Lord. before turning back to you. "When the Broodmother is mature she will no longer be as...sensitive a state and you may once again see her. Well assuming you didn't do anything to harm her. They are surprisingly aware in their eggs."

"..."

"..."

"Wait did you two do anything to this Broodmother while she was HELPLESS and DEFENSELESS in her egg," suddenly hisses an angry and alarmed Rixia standing up on her many legs.

"Actually I stopped him from crossing the line," confesses the Wraith Lord desperately moving away from the enraged but now slightly calmer Monster Matriarch.

"...Oh really now?"

"Yup. Totally," you agree nodding to him. "We merely...helped with her future development right?"

"Yup."
>>
>>5243636
oh shit im retarded
>>
>>5243636
>They are surprisingly aware in their eggs."
We should apologize profusely for because goddamn are we a terrible dad.
>>
>>5243636
Taking another much closer look at the egg Rixia peruses it carefully. "...Interestingly. I didn't think it was possible to acquire such a close death attunement and mana adaptable. Very peculiar indeed. Seems like I will have to take my time hatching this little one. Should have realized that the very last Broodmother egg the Queen held back for so long would be so special and full of potential. Hm...might take a while to hatch after all. I take back what I said about being able to complete this quickly I'm afraid," says the now calm but fascinated Rixia.

"So no details on your shared history?" Asks the wraith lord to you.

"How the fuck am I supposed to know?" You tell him shaking your head.

"Same Swarm. Same Queen. Same Spawn. Same Spark," simply elaborates Rixia.

"I have no idea what that is supposed to me," mutters the wraith lord.

"...wait YOU are the one the Queen suggested?" You suddenly realize aghast.

"Yes," simply nods the Matriarch. "Queen deemed you worthy. Not sure why I should have chosen you but now I know. VERY interesting changes to brood yes. Before I forget you want a new home? New building a home yes?"

"...Uh yeah I was going to pay people to make me on-"

"No need. I make."

but really I can take-"

"No."

"But."

"No." She orders you her lowering her head right before yours.

"...Okay. I'll..um let you handle it then."

"Good."

"Many offspring. Many breeding. Needs proper care. Your kind. No idea. We build. Make good."

"Oh good."

"One last thing..."

"Yeah?"

"Egg tells me...you make hurt."

Oh shit.

"So I make YOU HURT!"

"I'm SORRY!"

All you can remember is your head exploding and screaming. So much screaming and unable to pass out. You never would have imagined that the cruel monsters' horribly painful idea of 'training' was actually relatively pain free. Now you know you not even entirely sure how much time passed besides(eventually) waking up in the nest of Rixia you finally let it end.

"..."

"No words?" She asks you looking down at you.

"...No I had it coming," you admit. "I was a terrible Dad as usual." You say crying.

"Bad Dad." She agrees to nod her oversized head. "Can change."

"...Really?"

"Yes Yes." She affirms before picking you up and walking out of her teeming nest. "Broodmother...not very forgiving as you hurt but I punished. However monster families...not nice places. Very harsh. Very cruel. Very Brutal. I lead swarm...so even worse. Feral Children. All Are. Smarts Rare. No Longer."

"What how?"

"You did."

"Swarm Smart. Swarm Strong. Swarm Starving." She clicks rapidly over her floor and clacks with her speech. "I didn't understand why monster blooded good...monster blooded weak. Why queen insists on you? Now I know. monster blood supportive. Monster blooded smart. Very useful. Very...interesting. Broodmother though...even hungrier."

"Wait...are ALL monsters these my children?" You suddenly ask shuddering in horror at the sheer teeming numbers of them.

"Yes. Is tiny nest."
>>
>>5243660
lmao I guess the research did have an effect on the egg
>>
>>5243660
Your vision went dark and fainted sliding off Rixia. Resulting in Rixia cocking her head in confusion.

"Weird...not many. Very few. Why faint?" She asks herself.

When you later came to. You unfortunately confirmed the fact that it didn't get any better. Their numbers were...just too fucking many. How were POSSIBLY supposed to be a Dad to that many of them? You couldn't help but whimper at the thought.

"Many children. DIfferent species. Different Dads." Explains Rixia as you realize she was there with you on the bed.

"I don't understand. I thought the naga kids were bad enough there were a ton of them. I have no idea how they do it to be honest."

"Your kind few children. Different approach. Many children. Different approach." Tries to explain Rixia. "Swarm. All are children. Yet in a swarm does one care for one child like a bird cares for an egg? No. Egg more precious to bird than an egg is to bug. Your approach is good for rare children but worthless for common children. You cannot treat them the same way."

"...So how then?"

"Castes."

"...Go on."

"Do you treat common caste same as rare caste? No. You don't. My children very common. Broken into castes. So what castes are your children in?"

"...I love them all-"

"Wrong answer." Hisses Rixia. "Cannot expend equal effort into everyone."

"...I see your point," you grudgingly admit.

"You wish to make home. You wish to recruit followers. Must learn to identify castes and organize." Explains Rixia calmly. "Some children are more valuable than others. Other children are too common. That does not mean you do not love them. Cruel to treat common child as rare child. Will torment and kill that common child. Too difficult to compete, keep up, and survive. Thus perish. Caste necessary. Especially for you who makes many children from many species each who value their offspring differently."

"So how should I break them up?"

"Common expendable. Rare valuable. Unique Priceless." States Rixia.

"Thank you."

"No thanks. Is One."

When it came to recruitment you honestly weren't expecting...THIS. Word had apparently gotten around about you. Apparently about how lazy, rich, and mosti importantly whorish you are. As a result the majority of would be recruits are female.

roll 1d100 to see what you get. Dice pool of 2.

Meanwhile, construction of your new HQ began courtesy of what at first everyone thought was a gigantic invasion of swarm bug monsters. In actuality it was your construction crew. As they chose a spot(a previously desolate cliff face in the mountain) before digging in and rapidly hollowing it out. The hollowed stone was then digested and mixed with wax to construct a surface structure of the giant scale. Just like that a hive that could comfortably fit giants and dragons with ease formed. As eventually, other monsters showed up. Showcasing in a very embarrassing fashion your power once they began to...decorate it in a very lewd and loving manner indicating its purpose for matchmaking, lovemaking and home for your dynasty.

Interestingly the monsters also informed an addition was built another Rixia's nest as well. Being the first to formally welcome you outside the Rage Demon Tribe for your descendants and followers to base themselves.

In other news females are showing up interesting in courting your dynasty. They are interested in both the MC and to a lesser degree offspring.

Dynasty management. Offspring Management. Offspring Rights. Courting. Being courted.

Basically the fact that they are interested in stopping by your whorehouse means they want something more and are interested in getting involved with your dynasty. That is something of concern.

Not to mention OFFSPRING Management is vital cause they are the future MCs and very valuable assets.
These are all things to consider.

The two biggest things are Eugenics(courting) and Dynasty Management like handling your descendants.

Right now word has spread that not only are good for breeding but you ALSO offer valuable buffs. So...you are gonna be very popular indeed. It is best to handle it carefully.

I should also point out your relations with the Heads since your Dynasty has no Leader their factions actually have a shit ton of influence on you.

To accept the courting of all those coming to you...oh man. I will admit that makes my life a LOT easier. Good to see you're living it up as a gigolo. So that is the policy...buffs and dicking for everyone. The best part is it makes PERFECT sense in character. I mean why would you ever refuse or have standards at this point when the point is to ensure Dynasty is established and most importantly of all...why would villains have standards?
----
You chose to accept all requests of courting you. Neither did you pay much attention to what they intended to offer or even tried to negotiate. In fact whenever they tried to negotiate you would strip and fuck them right then and there to shut them up. Repeat. You zero intent to refuse. The sheer fact they came here instead of the whorehouse meant they had goodwill and you didn't mind strengthening the ties of your dynasty with others. As a result for the first time, you discovered a peculiar change in your routine.

Most days you spent whoring, handling your personal interests, and sucking up to your baby mammas. This time a new thing gradually became the norm. As you did end up fucking them but at the same time, you tried to befriend and get to know them as well as their intents/interests in you/your dynasty. It more or less all came down to the same thing. They heard about you and your dynasty peculiarities and they wanted a taste. So you simply gave them one and after that, they were hooked.

It was honestly a pretty simple and easy equation. You yourself weren't 'that' great. Tough and magical easy on the eyes if you are wicked and fun in bed, but let's be honest. A lot of higher quality males had more to offer. Except you could offer them buffs and the favor of your dynasty on top of yourself. That won them over. If they weren't interested they never would have bothered to take the risk and make the journey. Especially to the Rage Demon Tribe of all places. The simple fact that they were here meant you already won.

A for them wanting to 'negotiate'...who cares. You had them by the cunt hairs and they knew damn well plenty of other pussies were interested to take their place. Not to mention by the sheer benefits of your dynasty...the more they tried to screw you the less they would actually benefit. Even if they were broke ass bitch with nothing but their own pussy to offer...you would still take it because you knew that your children were worth it and who knows what she would be capable of once she had your support no?

If she died...I mean did you really lose anything? Custody of the children would be yours. So you simply...learned to love them. Just as you grew fond of Zixra when you were a little boy. Letting her handle everything so you could focus solely on your own interests. This was the same thing. Each party did its own thing. Each shared with each other and depended on each other in their own way. Always supporting.

You didn't care you were nothing more than a manwhore just as they did and just as you didn't care about who came knocking at your door. It's funny that despite everything turned out you and your Baby Mommas aka Sugar Mommies are actually rather fond of each other. You kept them company and happy. Any female had the right to join them. You would refuse no one even if they had nothing else to offer. Sure you were just 'one man' they would say but you would remind them you were breeding an army and had a dynasty forming to also service them. If that wasn't enough there were always slaves to fill in the gaps.

Unsurprisingly you didn't even really notice when your newly recruited followers had 'also' slipped in with the courtiers who came from afar then again they started to blur together after some of the courting members decided they wanted to stay instead of going back. So they just joined them anyway. Impossible to tell the difference after that really...in the end, it didn't really matter. A lot of your newly recruited followers were female. No small part of them was limited to Female Only. They had no males and other unusual breeding problems. Hence why you were a godsend. By joining you they didn't need to worry anymore. You also generally recruited a lot of horny and slutty people who thought they could make it as whores and waifus. You knew most of them would end up dead and the rest would quit in the long run.

After all your 'faction' isn't one for those with...well very high regards and standards in terms of actual expectations with themselves. Unless there were special circumstances why the hell would they join up? Unless they intend to use you as a branch to transfer over to your sugar mommies...oh that is actually pretty clever come to think of it. You are very well aware of just how weak and low status your dynasty is. Your a bunch of moochers supportive moochers but still moochers. If they think they can get away with it your Baby Mommas will solve the problem for you without having you lift a finger as they won't turn down some slaves and additional manpower.

Finally, at long last, you once more got to begin your magic practice after Zixra had banned you from it. It was so damned nice to return to it at long last. It just felt so...relaxing and eager after taking such a long forced vacation from it. It had just been too damned long. Sure there are a lot of things resistant to magic but that only means you aren't powerful enough!

That is how you blew yourself up and got sent flying. Except for this time...it didn't hurt, unlike the other times, you did this. Huh. I guess she was right about how important it was to be tough enough. So you got right back to practice even needing to take fewer breaks and recover more quickly than ever before! Mwahaha. MOAR POWAH. At least until it was time to quit and give the kids storytime and spend time with your baby mommas. Not to mention working at the whorehouse.

Freakish Founding helps mitigate the effect but...well it doesn't actually stop it. It's something even Zixra took notice of and partly why she became so obsessed with slaving. This reminds me for the sake of my own sanity. Offspring are broken into different grades cause fuck trying to keep track of so many damned numbers and stats for every single one. Eugenics still very important but now its easier to identify commoner from nobility ect.

One important thing I must point out is the need to reinforce the agreements regularly because without a dynasty member attached to them the buffs are going to weaken and wear off completely. This is worsened by the fact that it can be further boosted by the quantity and quality of dynasty members they absorb as supporters. That can potentially get pretty nasty in a few short generations depending on how intensive they are about it.

Another thing that should be pointed out is the Dynasty's temporary ability to of being cross compatibility in terms of fertility and yet recessive in terms of expression. This is made worse by Dynasty effects and yet it offers a supportive boon as a result. In fact your dynasty has a very unusual and beneficial effect attached to its lineage.

That is its Supportive and submissive nature. It does not takeover even against rarer, recessive, and challenging to pass on bloodlines. Most importantly the capacity(meaning you can fit more before problems will arise) it takes up is greatly reduced due to a lack of struggle and competition. The bad news is it's going to be a fucking nightmare for you to 'breed true. Since it's so easy for anyone else to completely dominate and overwhelm your bloodline but in exchange, their own progeny is greatly boosted since their own capacity is temporarily greatly enhanced.

This isn't obvious right now because you have Progenitor and Founding effect going on but that will wear off and when it does you going to be deep shit. As your bloodline is a stupidly useful tonic to others but very tricky to maintain itself as it's just too damned easy for it to lose against anyone else due to its 'weakness'. Not actually weak just too geared towards being supportive.

Our monster alliance needs to be mega. And we need to find a buncha bloodlineless breeding stock to keep our bloodline going rather than the subsumed bloodline.

But first things first. Getting our trade links solidified
