Having traversed the ocean to Zipangu, you find yourself drawn by a melodious singing voice towards a glade. In the steaming pool at its centre you see a half-submerged woman. With a misplaced step you break a branch that gains her attention. She inspects you then beckons you with a lascivious smile. The steam clears as you approach the pools edge. You soon realise she is no ordinary woman but a:
After your steamy rendezvous in the forest, you find yourself at a crossroads. There is a sign post in front of you with a number of locations listed. Unfortunately, You are unable to turn back as the bridge you passed over collapsed. So you take a moment to read the sign and choose your path:
You decide to make camp after your journey. you also gained a new traveling companion, but she decided to scout ahead while you rest. After she disappears you hear a commotion nearby, on inspection you find a group of oni fighting and making merry. You have time to kill but are unsure of what to do:
You finally make it to the Zipangu capital. Being low on resources you make a deal for some quick coin with a merchant. Unfortunately, you fall for the scam of a chocolate Gyoubu Danuki. And with a cheeky smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye, she gives you a few options for repaying her.
After a month of working for The Gyoubu Danuki, you feel you deserve a break. So you decide to investigate a mountain retreat on your day off. But your luck was failing again. The hot-spring was already occupied by two groups; One lead by a Ryu, the other lead by an Inari. After an hour of them bickering, they offer a few suggestions for your stay:
The Inari's offer was too good to be true. Once in her room she gave you a few choices before she would start your 'Training' as she called it. Each time she mentioned 'Training' her ears wiggled and a mischievous smile spread across her face. Once you were both sat and the terms were made, she told you to return after completing one of the following:
After your conversation, the Inari turned to pour a cup of tea. so you casually reached forward and 'Touched fluffy tail'. The fur was the softest thing you had ever felt. But you soon realised the tail had curled up your arm and the inari was watching you with a grin. Your mind felt heavy and within a blink you were suddenly chained to a wall. The inari and ryu were in front of you with a group of women. The inari noticed you rouse and said you were to be punished for touching a priestess, the mischievous glint never leaving her eye.
Everyone was surprised when you chose the quiet Shirohebi. It shocked her the most, so much that her pure white skin and scales flushed. But as she dragged you along you felt something grab your collar. It was the trader, she did not look happy. After a short explanation she conceded and followed. Once in a room they told you to strip and kneel, after doing so they undressed before sitting in front of you. both of them looked amused, although the Shirohebi's skin was now a light pink. The situation was very different from what you expected.
True to her word, the Shirohebi squeezed you late into the night. Leaving you very sore the next morning. But that was not the end of it, that morning the trader dragged you back to town and proceeded to take her frustration out on you. Never had you felt so exhausted in your life, but the fluffy eared girl laid sated with a blissful smile. All you had left was the decision of where to go next.
In a set of fortunate events, you find that your earlier traveling companion was the source of this information. The young Lizard-man had decided to scout the surrounding area in the time you had spent in the town. So after meeting her again you set off into the jungle with another group of adventurers. Once you arrive you find a stone city with a stepped pyramid at one end. The majority of the group were undecided so left you to pick their route.
Your Boisterous Lizard-man companion gained the better of the group as she dragged you to the far side of the city. Nature had done its part as trees and flowers sprouted from various places. But the Air became thick and heavy as everyone approached the Pyramid, Around its base an assortment of purple grasses and black barked trees were growing. The Trees ultramarine leaves providing a little shelter from the sun.
It was a long trek to the top. The others followed, but when you checked, only the female adventurer, Danuki and knight were left. The air felt thicker and everyone had started to sweat, a cackling that sounded like a hiss brought everyone's attention to the dark entrance of the pyramid. A woman appeared from the dark, her lower body that of a snake, Her eyes covered by an ornate metal plate. She asked everyone why they came and to speak in turn.
You stood there dumbfounded by the snake woman's beauty. She smiled when it felt as thought your eyes met. 'Very well, you two may get your wishes.' She pointed to the young woman and knight then clicked her fingers. In a blur of scales, a pair of Lamia appeared from the darkness and dragged them into the temple. 'They will find their history and improvement, now what to do with you three?'
Holding on for your life was all you could do, apart from screaming. Your lizardman companion was exploding with energy as she raced into the depths of the temple. A few torches guided her way past various dark intersections but she remained undeterred. And with a girlish wail your companion tripped, leaving you both in a pile. A third screaming body fell on top of you both, but it was the trader who smiled when you looked. Peering over a rocky drop revealed three bridges leading to different tunnels.
There was only one option that you were going to take. Your honour urged you to help the woman in distress. So you dragged your companions along the snake bridge and down the tunnel on the other side. Once you reached its end you found yourself in a large open space with a pit at its centre. Glancing down you could see multiple snake women chanting around the female adventurer. Her legs appeared fused together while snakes bit into the flesh on her legs and seemed to be merging with her body.
You looked to the boisterous Lizard-man, she glanced to the candle bearer and came to the same conclusion. Grabbing you with her tail, the Lizard-man jumped and grabbed the candle bearer while you reached for the female adventurer. Screams of frustration echoed in the chamber when you disappeared to the other side of the pit. Looking down, the female adventurers legs were partly scaled and appeared to be separating. The last of the snakes had fused with her before you could pull them away. The trader was already with you by the time you landed, she had run around the pit.
With the snakes in the pit the group managed to escape and return to the town. The female adventurer was shocked to find her new body and was still coming to terms with what happened to her. She almost looked like your Lizard-man friend except for the scales being fine and her feet and hands being human in shape. After a day of rest you all decided to leave the town behind to continue your journey. The female adventurer wanted to repay you for saving her so asked if she could join.
A week had passed since leaving the temple. And the female adventurer had become accustomed to her altered body, although the new urges she felt unnerved her. At camp one night she decided to sit close to you, an uncomfortable although not unwelcome closeness on such a cold night. The lizard-man and trader had gone to the local town for supplies. It would be nice, except her stubby tail was trying to work its way into your clothes. Maybe she is just trying to warm up? like the lizard-man when she feel cold.
