My skill set brings all the girls to the yard.
And by yard, I mean, the temple of a young goddess who’s using me to build a fortified city around herself before the god of war can finish slaying every deity in the heavens.
He’d better not find us before we’re ready. Spoiler: We’re far from ready.
But hey, I get a cool skill out of it. The goddess allows me to view anyone’s strength, vivacity, and other attributes as though they were numbers on a menu, and then use their life experiences to make them stronger. I can unlock their special skills too, and it’s all stuff no one else can see.
Hence the girls: A beastkin builder, a negotiatrix made of slime, a half-elf gypsy that charms snakes — and more — seeking safe refuge and a place to belong.
Think our ragtag group can survive a divine onslaught of apocalyptic proportions? I know what I think. Come on in and find out.
