As a guy with multiple sclerosis, I'll tip my hat to you for the reason for the chrome.

Not a review, but a friendly bump from the webmaster.

Giving Zinger a hit as an apology for this taking a while. The post will also be kind of shitty, since I'm sick and this is the FOURTH TIME DOING IT.


Luck was not on Carmine's side.

One of Verdant's arrows landed right below her, the ice Verdant had been planning to use for cover bursting upward. Right under her.

There was something about not getting hit somewhere sensitive I was supposed to do, wasn't there? The thought came just before Carmine's position took a sudden vertical adjustment , courtesy of the ice that had just punted her in the cu struck her in the crotch.

Pain. Lots of pain.

Carmine staggered back, whimpering and clutching herself, or at least holding her guns over the area as a measure of comfort. "Aw fuckin' 'ell, right on th' fuckin' bean..." It couldn't get worse. Her clumsy positioning could not have been any-

Carmine used to be a mobile combatant like Verdant. And then she took an ice arrow to the knee.

And yet, as the ice spread up her leg, trapping her temporarily, there was only one thought going through Carmine's mind through the haze of pain. At least it didn't hit the- COLD COLD COLD COLD COLD FUCKING COLD COLD COLD.

Carmine's song is to the tune of Xmas? I don't know such a thing!


"SINGLE 'ELL, SINGLE 'ELL, SINGLE ALWAYS," Carmine's cheery, accented voice rose in song as she made her way back to where Malina was, "I wonder 'ow many years I've spent jus' all by m'self?"

Her voice wasn't the only sound. Jingling. An ungodly cacophony of jingling accompanied the girl's singing, indicative of her dancing, prancing gait. Jingling... and a sound not unlike four hundred pounds of meat being dragged periodically behind her, facilitated by pulses of her semblance not so much pulling as flinging the massive beast forward every few feet.

"SINGLE 'ELL, SINGLE 'ELL, SINGLE ALWAYS," she was getting closer, and her song seemed to get worse. Carmine did not have a good singing voice. "Now I'm 'appy an' I've got teammates, in time for-," The singing stopped, the jingling stopped, and a loud series of honks and screeches, drowned out any residual jingling. "'EY! NO! BAD! GO BACK TO-" a loud thud sounded, "SLEEP!"

Silence. Horrible silence. Then Carmine continued her song, the jingling resumed, and the thud sounded again.

"Beacon's lit brill'antly," thud, "upon this festive eve," thud, "an' I've got lovely teammates," thud, "to dress up festively!" One more thud, before Carmine turned the corner.

Oversized red conical hat with fluffy white trim and a puff ball on the end. Strapless red dress with excessively fluffy white trim hiding any trace of her cleavage with the raw elemental floof. Shoulder-length candy cane striped gloves, arguably to hide her scar on her arm. Thigh-length candy cane stockings. Curly toed red shoes. And many, many ribbons covered with tiny jingling bells tied around her arms and legs. Tied into her hair. Tied around each finger like rings. Her hair was in front of her right eye to hide the scarring there, so she had to search more than normal to see Malina, starting toward her friend with a big grin, and another tug of the cable she held.

She did not stop singing. "'Cause I've got friends this year," whatever she was dragging seemed to have gotten caught, and she flicked the cable, with another loud thud, to dislodge it from the wall, "an' we're all single girls," she tugged again, only to have the loud thump shake the wall, "maybe we all should dress up cute an' go-"

Again, the loud honking and screeching, its source apparent as a large bull reindeer scrambled to its feet and darted past, bleating its poor traumatized, bruised heart out upon slipping free from Carmine's detached grapple reel cable.

The only response from Carmine was a long, drawn out "awwwwwwwwwww maaaaaan" as she watched the reindeer abscond to try to find its way back to that singing princess-looking student Carmine acquired the deer from. "I was gonna dress 'im up as a mascot..." She turned back to Malina, a pout on her face. "Malinaaaaaa, I need to get Chiu reindeer 'orns. Y'know. Backup plan." She sniffed, making her way toward Malina. "Somethin' somethin' just use a differn't 'orny animal..."

She sniffed again, and looked at the tree.

"... Lookin' good!"

I'm really sorry about the delays. A lot of pain, several bad medication reactions, and five hospital visits later, here I am. Still not 100% so I'll be kind of phoning it in. Sorry about that. Delays were okayed by all parties. Only Gus was bullied into accepting them, but that's more out of habit than anything.


Time stretched out for Carmine as she saw Malina get hit, a moment seeming like a month as one thought ran through Carmine's mind. He shot her in the tit. A second thought. Also, he fucked up his one liner. That was a less important thought, so she went back to the first. Poor Malina. That looked like it hurt. Note to self: don't get hit in the tit. Or anywhere else super sensitive. Ooooh hell, if my aura fluctuates when I get hit, it might cause a wardrobe malfunction. The whole world might see my boob. Her awareness was dragged to her arm. Or my scar. ... Don't know what would be worse. At least my boob is cute? But eeeeeeeeee-

Malina. Shot. Pain. Carmine's wandering train of thought snapped back to the present. Some primal, buried part of her took her by the head, forced her to look at the threat Verdant posed, and forced her to do what it said.

FOCUS.

Verdant had turned to Carmine as her train of thought locked on to the battle, one of his ice arrows drawn. "Let's take a moment to acknowledge how great this fight has gone, may the best Huntsman or Huntress win."

Carmine just nodded, and fired Al-Maisan and Al-Nayyir between her and Verdant, explosive and smoke pellets kicking up a thick cloud to block line of sight between the two combatants. "Yeah, an' no 'ard feelings either way for 'ow this goes. Sound good?" Her message delivered, she ducked to the side, rolling and  using one gun to expand her smoke field and the other's flechette fire to pepper Verdant's position. (5 damage)

How badly would Titania take Big Rose going to Soljia and telling her, "Hey. Little Demon mutant," ignoring Soljia's inevitable tirade as a result, "Titania's, like, older she looks." Rose proceeds to make eye contact with Titania. "Like... a LOT older..."

Why does Malina put cameras in the bathroom and record her classmates peeing?

How does Zabar feel about the existence of the "Blowjob Cafe" in Vale? How does Titania feel about her students going to said cafe? (As patrons, not necessarily as servers.)

Soljia goes up to Titania, and just goes "Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock." When asked what she's doing, she replies, "I am having imitation-soundings with ideaness to emulate-be the reproductive viability-ness of biological clocks for the Titania-stupids-professor." Wat do?

Fresno had casually raised her hand when Merletta raised her weapon, her aura flaring when the bullets were fired. Predictable, she thought, watching Merletta and Fionn's rounds slow and stop. Slowly, she looked back at Merletta, and smiled, letting the bullets drop as she terminated the dust pattern. "The new strain of Guardian beast is performing admirably in the field. Despite the setback caused by you and your girlfriend." Slowly, casually, she knelt and touched the ground, and her aura suddenly flared again. "... Ask her when I'm done with you."

The only warning Merletta had was suddenly feeling as if Shiphrah Fresno was in the ground under her feet before the roots and stalks of the immature wheat surrounding them suddenly, and explosively, grew and entangled her.

The two students near her didn't get much chance to help as Hedora surged forward, his boot catching Fionn's jaw despite his illusion and sending him flying back toward the bullhead in a flash of light and surge of unnatural force. He swung his bayonet at Cherry, the tip barely grazing past the nose of her mask, spinning and kicking her in the gut to send her stumbling into Fionn with the same flash and force. "Heeeeey, kids." The soldier held his rifle casually as he started approaching them, raising it to point at the two students. "I'm gonna need you both to do me a solid, and not stand there and die. Okay?" It was a casual conversation, for someone who immediately opened fire.

Radicance was significantly less well-mannered as Strelka's flare round flew at her, only to be deflected by an unseen force and whiz past her and explode against the ground a good distance behind her. "Nope," was all she said as she fired a grenade against the ground between them, the explosion kicking up a large cloud of smoke and dust. "Not that easy." Casually, with one hand while she walked toward where Lil Rose had fallen, Radicance fired four grenades in rapid succession from her launcher at Strelka, each taking a slightly different trajectory thanks to the distortion field generated by her semblance. It was noisy enough to get Lil Rose's attention, her beanie perking up as her ears did and she figured getting out of the way was a good idea, running behind the wreckage of the bullhead to prepare an ambush.

Fresno just took a moment to watch the two engage the students, casually walking toward a held and relatively hopeless Merletta with a smile on her face as she reached into her pocket. "Typical Vytali bitch," she said, spitting in Merletta's face, watching the saliva roll down the Hunter's cheek. "My research was illegal, but it was necessary to protect my people. From the Monsters. From the Demons. And from you."

Calloused fingers pulled something from the pocket. A seed.

"... And that's why I took so much pleasure from executing your dyke girlfriend, you ignorant Vytali cunt." Without any mercy or gentleness, the doctor took hold of Merletta's jaw, forcing her mouth open and jamming the seed and her fingers to the back of Merletta's throat as a tingling feeling robbed her of strength in her jaw muscles. "Shhhhh, shhhhh, shhhhhhhhhhhhhh," Doctor Fresno shushed, listening to Merletta gag, "Don't get any ideas about finally having another woman's fingers inside you, you disgusting abomination. Just swallow the seed..." She paused, and closed her eyes and sighed. "... Right. Phrasing. ... Might as well own it, I suppose. Swallow the seed for once."

The old woman seemed amused with herself when the seed slid down the Hunter's throat, and she stepped back, arms crossed. Smiling. Cocky.

How does Foshan feel about same sex pairings? How about Chiu as an individual?

Chiu learns about Pilum. How everyone in Pilum has a place within its hierarchy, and the individual is put to the most utility. She is not told that Pilum is a lawful evil fascist oligarchy (due to the Senate being rigged by the Great Houses) with legal slavery and "most utility" often means those at the bottom being liquified and used as materials. How does she feel about there being another place not as chaotic as Vale?

If Titania asks how she died in the bad end timeline, Big Rose avoids the question, gives a fairly obvious lie about not seeing, or flat out refuses to answer and gets very visibly upset for reasons you know. Does Titania push?

Titania finds out, possibly thanks to Leo. How worried would she be?

How does Chiu feel about cute things? How about Carmine's attempts to get her to wear cute things?

Does Chiu at least try to be discrete?

Yet more questions, how bothersome.

Yet more temptation to limit any further attempts at a worldbuild from you to bronze age technology.

Quote
What is the most powerful non-thermobaric chemical explosive that is allowed for common use (example: HE rounds), wether in actual form or Dust equivalent?

Depends on application.

Quote
Are jet turbines/engines which use electric arcs as a heat source instead of fuel or Dust too high-tech? If yes, does that mean that the "extremely low-tech only" previously mentioned for aircraft engines basically stands for "fans of whatever type only"?

Let me put it in a way you can get through your thick fucking skull:

You can use dust, or you can use a fucking hang glider.

Quote
What is the allowed use of weapons akin to Penny's Spinning Swords Beam Attack? If allowed (even if only marginally), would they have to directly consume Dust?

Not allowed on Penny's small scale without dickery, and you have been told repeatedly  that no you may not have high non-dust technology so what the fuck do you THINK the answer to "would they have to directly consume Dust" would be, you fucking moron?

Quote
What about regenerating organs by procedures such as 3D printing, applying powdered extracellular matrix, etc.?

How you phrase it? No.

Quote
While I'm at it, what would be a general limit on biotech?

Depends how you go about it, and the technology base the worldbuild is descended from.

Quote
In terms of medical robots, would a drone with an AI 'capable of pretty much only stopping excessive bleeding, internal or external', be acceptable? Or is that still beyond the realm of the CCT AI?

You're not getting medical robots.

Quote
How about quantum encryption, where the encryption and decryption keys are series of quantum objects? (Of course, this means that the encryption and decryption keys must be physically delivered, but makes attempts at interception mildly useless)

Not only no. Not only hell no. Full on FUCK OFF.

You're not getting your non-dust technology powerhouse no matter how you fucking wiggle. Keep wasting my fucking time, and we'll do that bronze age thing.


When I talk about Manned Bi-Pedal Vehicles, I'm not talking about Mechs like the Paladins, but rather weapon platforms like the Sentinels from Warhammer 40K or the ATSTs from Star Wars. From the looks of their designs, they'd be relatively easy to make when comparing them to the Paladins.

On the same topic, would something like the D-Walker from MGS5 be allowed?

There's no hard, "no bipedal robots" but you'll be under very close scrutiny if you're not Atlas.

Limit for materials technology excluding hardlight in Remnant? For example: carbyne, graphene, nanomaterials?

No solid limit, but you're going to be under intense scrutiny. Also, Nathan's warning about bronze age technology applies to you, too.
