Succubi, Succubi Everywhere!
This is part 39 of my Monmusu Quest: Paradox playthrough, which began back here. If you're a succubus fan and one of your criticisms of Paradox so far has been too many weird fuckin' monster girls, you're going to really enjoy this segment. Maybe.
We're on the way back from Sphinx's pyramid with what is hopefully a cure for the errant Queen Sara. Off to the throne room we go. The guards try to insist only Luka can go forward, but they're not exactly competent and it's easy to shove past and enter the throne room.
Now all we have to do is to talk Sara into drinking this little vial of blood…
Yeah, that was never going to happen. At least we've made her go full monster, I suppose.
Why fight, Sara? I have a big room in my personal pocket castle just for fun stuff. And sausage. Plenty of sausage.
Um, yes. Tempted. Very tempted.
Resist, Luka, resist.
There's no point succumbing here anyway. Wait until we get her back to the castle. If she's anything like MGQ: Chapter 3 succubus Sara she'll have like a billion request moves.
Beating her gives us the opening to force-feed her Sphinx's blood. She's just starting to come back to her senses when a guard rushes in to tell us the Luddite village is under attack by the three succubus sisters.
What, more succubus action? Hubba hubba.
The old Sara returns as she rushes off to get changed into armour. Actually, we probably want succubus Sara to be honest. Plucky swordmaiden Sara was a bit useless in the fighting department if we're being brutally honest.
Thirty minutes before we get there, the succubus trio arrive at Luddite village. The villagers claim they're under the protection of the Goddess. Somehow I don't think that's going to help them much.
Some guards bravely rush in.
Yeeps! Redshirts obviously don't get the benefits of tasteful fadeouts before being turned to dried-up husks. Morrigan evidently doesn't believe in the virtues of foreplay.
Astaroth says she's kinder.
She grabs the nearest dude and moments later he's on the ground naked and she's on top of him, big boobs swaying away. We even get animated pixel sex in the main RPG exploration/navigation screen, which I wasn't expecting to be honest.
Lilith also wants in.
Which means more animated pixel sex as she gets on top and even bigger boobs start swaying around. To say I'm looking forward to seeing what Lilith's Bad End scenes are like would be an understatement. I also have a horrible feeling we won't be seeing any until chapter two.
Hmm. Hate to say this, dears, but this looks a terribly inefficient way to massacre a village. I don't think succubi are exactly suited to this task – just give us a few days or so while we bonk every single man to death one-by-one.
Ah, that's why they have Morrigan. Vicious little bitch, isn't she.
She bamfs around the screen and huskifies all the hapless observers. It looks like she's frying them with lightning, but the sound effect is the same coming sound effect the game uses whenever Luka loses. For some reason my imagination creates an image of her magic causing her victim's cum and energy to burst out of their cock and balls in a devastating cumplosion. And because my imagination has already pictured it, that means you poor bastards will probably be reading about it in a story someday.
Luka and crew arrive in time to watch Astaroth and Lilith finish their 'meals'. Sex with super-hawt sex demons is indeed hazardous to the health.
It looks like we're going to be fighting Astaroth. Before it all kicks off Morrigan lets slip something she shouldn't. Not that it matters. My machine translator gets as far as 'chaos-ization' and gives up.
Astaroth is a proper boss fight. She has an annoying mass-seduce attack that results in the entire party piling on Luka in a mass orgy. And then her temptation attack.
Don't stick your dick in there, Luka. Goddammit!
Her Bad End is death by tits as she wraps them round our hard-on. Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, urk…. [fade to black].
This is where I take a slight pause to try and work out how to level up characters and re-organise the party. There are so many choices in the game, it's easy to get lost. It's something I might look at in more detail in a subsequent playthrough (likely when the game is fully translated). For now I don't think I can go into more detail and keep to this daily schedule. There is a lot to play around with in Paradox.
I've been using both imps (Rami and Remi) for most of the game. This is where they really shine as they are resistant to both wind and pleasure attacks. The rematch takes a while as Astaroth has a lot of HP. For some reason she doesn't use the mass-seduce attack and I ignore her temptation move and carry straight on to the victory scene where she looks pissed off at being beaten.
She's not properly beaten. They never are. But she's not in the mood to escalate her power to murder Luka right now.
In an odd twist she reveals she's acting to save the world.
You what? I'm sure all these dead dudes lying around might have a different opinion on that.
Astaroth reveals it's all part of Alice's mother's master plan, which she neglected to inform Alice of. Astaroth seems unhealthily keen on a rematch versus Alice at some point. Now I'm confused. I thought the Lilith sisters were one of the Big Bads and now it sounds like they're pawns of an even Bigger Bad (Good?).
Astaroth departs to leave Sara to look tearfully at all the dead bodies. Back in Sabasa she makes the decision to abdicate the throne so she can follow Luka and fix whatever mess the world is in. It might also be something to do with the fact she now has the freedom to run around twatting things with a bloody big sword.
There's no time to rest, though. A guard rushes in with another problem. This time it's the Witch Hunt village. More on that tomorrow.
