We're at part 43 of my Monmusu Quest: Paradox playthrough. If you're fresh here and don't know what the fuss is about, I'd suggest starting here.
Last up we had a choice between two mad sorceresses/alchemists and went with the one with the bigger tits, Lucia. As people have pointed out, this was probably not the correct choice given her tendency to feed you to her giant grub pet if you ask for a bit of nookie back at the castle.
The tits are a lie.
The grub is the truth.
Oh well, at least we've resolved the little civil war down in this grubby (sorry!) little corner of the world to both Sara and Alice's satisfaction. Alice thinks it's time to go and contract the second of the elemental spirits (rather embarrassingly, I still haven't figured out how to use Sylph correctly so far). Sonya also lets us know that the town further north, Saloon, makes some strong crystal weapons that will be handy when it comes to exploring the third Tartarus pit.
Before then there is another location we haven't visited yet – Lucia's tower.
The tower is to the south of Witch Hunt Village. As the war is over, Lucia's forces – a succubus nurse, cute l'il oni and slime girl with very big hands – are happily supping tea to the left of the entrance.
Normally that would be that, but Paradox as a game is very careful to make sure there are no Lost Forevers. Rather than force the player to do enough finangling between Lily and Lucia so that they have an option to recruit both sides' forces, it takes the pure gameplay decision of just opening up her tower afterwards and treating it as a generic dungeon.
The tower is a bit of a maze with plenty of loot stashed in chests (and no fucking pots!). There's no story part to be done here as we've already recruited Lucia, but there are three new monster girls to add to Luka's Harem (as well as further chances to recruit the Worm Villager and Iron Maiden if you haven't already got them).
The first is another out-of-sequence returner, the succubus nurse from chapter three.
She's the first to put the highly dubious incontinent state on characters. She had quite a variety of artwork in MGQ: Chapter 3 if I remember correctly, which will probably mean a lot of different request moves in the castle. Unfortunately, one of those probably features her using that giant syringe as a suction pump. It will be good to have a trained nurse doctor in the castle… maybe.
Then there are two new brand new monster girls. First up there's the spunky little oni.
In keeping with her mythological heritage she's one of many club specialists that can be utilised. Her temptation move is quite sweet as well.
"Let's have sex!" makes for a refreshing change over "I'm going to swallow you and flood you in digestive juices."
The other is a specialised slime girl/automata cross with sex toys for fingers.
Edwina Fleshlight-Fingers was made to harvest sperm from either willing or unwilling donors. Because of her protean nature she can change the shape of her fingers to match her 'partners's' specifications exactly. Every sperm bank should have one.
Her Bad End has her give us a comprehensive milking with her squishy fingers.
Lucia might be the badder girl, but her forces seem a little more pleasant and less toothy than Lily's.
Let the Lily vs. Lucia debate rage on.
There's not much story in this section as we already cleaned that up going through Lily's mansion. I suppose I could have been more thorough and used a side save to check out the alternate pathway, but to be honest I'm only barely keeping on schedule and the game is grindy enough as it is.
Hmm, an earlier finish does give me the perfect opportunity to plug my books again. Check them out if you like reading about bad girls giving out sexy bad ends. And only some of them eat people, honest.
Tomorrow its time to return to the desert in search of Gnome.
