Witch Hunt Village (The Choice)
Welcome to part 41 of my Monmusu Quest: Paradox playthrough. The first part of this insanity can be found back here.
Currently we're off to Witch Hunt Village to play peacemaker in demon civil war. It's not the easiest place to get to as we have to circle around the edge of the mountain range to the north.
The northern deserts have slightly different monsters. Crocodile girls and cobra girls from Sphinx's pyramid become regular encounters.
Once we get off the sands it's time to see some brand new monster girls. Big Spider.
Her temptation attack is to wrap our dick in sticky silk.
Then it's nope and even more nope as she climbs on Luka's back and a tube comes out of her abdomen for intensive sperm sucking.
The artwork didn't hit the spot for me at all with this one. Her head is a weird size, her expressions odd and the colouration makes it look like she has a beard. Nope, nope, nopity nope (and I even quite like arachnes).
Because it is such a long way around the mountains I decide to leave off the temptation attacks until I reach the village.
At the village someone in witchy gear meets us and tells us there are no problems. Lily is the feudal lord and everything is in hand.
Both Sara and Alice, who have various ruling claims to this area, acknowledge they have to get to the bottom of what's going on.
We run into one of the villagers.
Yep, nothing to see here. Nothing at all…
Her wormy arms are a power gifted to her by Lily. The village used to burn witches and the men used to treat the women abominably. Lily put a stop to this and everyone loves her. There isn't a male character in the village that isn't either an old dude or young boy. This is not suspicious in the slightest…
The battle-fucker also has a witchy look to her. A little too manic.
She does have variations in her artwork, which is a change. To be honest, I think the battle-fucker thing has been one addition to Paradox that hasn't really seemed necessary. This might have something to do with my irrational hatred of the sound of a saxophone.
Lily greets us at the entrance of her mansion and takes us to one side to give her story.
Yep, they massacred all the dudes. But they deserved it, honest.
Hmm, if you say so, Lily.
She asks us if we'll help her to put down the resistance by taking out opposition leader, Lucia.
We don't have to make the decision now. We decide not to and after leaving the mansion a representative of the other side asks us to come along and hear their side of the story. The opposition is hiding in a house on top of the hill in the upper north-east corner of the village.
A previously-locked door is now open and Lucia can be found in the basement.
I didn't remember Lucia being so endowed in the chest department in the original series. That might have been because I was too busy trying to stop her gobbling up Luka with her giant grub arm last time around.
In the previous series Lily was a mad alchemist/sorceress that took over the village as revenge for how she'd been treated by the village. Lucia was one of her 'experiments' and got her revenge by gobbling Lily up.
This time around Lucia was Lily's primary research assistant. This civil war has kicked off over a difference in ideology. Lily wants to spread her cure out across the world to care of the evil menz everywhere. Lucia thinks that will end up in the power being abused and twisted so that it's a tool for the strong to oppress the weak.
Okay, so it looks like we're getting another choice between characters. As with Alice and Ilias at the beginning I guess it's a case of picking whichever one we want in the party.
I'll sleep on it and make the choice tomorrow.
