    Reverse Chivalry last and final update, anyone interested?

    A different time than when I usually do the thread, I could detail some prior events till the normal time perhaps?

    Whatever people want really. As stated though, this is probably the last thread, as the game has resolved itself now.

    A resolution! Huzzah!

    I, for one, welcome a story.

    Well hopefully I won't get banned this time around.


    Ok so lets see, last time that left off, the Order HQ had been sieged and the lot of them either captured or routed (or killed), and with surprise of surprises when the Rogue character came back leading the cavalry, intent to save our butts and seeking to make amends.

    That night everyone celebrated and was happy, and the paladin and her husband were reunited finally. Not for too long though, as it would be.

    As it turned out, the Rogue never actually turned good and was always evil, in fact more evil than we imagined. Typical drow shit.

    Unbeknown to everyone, at some prior time he had made an alliance with the more violent aspects of the Order, that if they helped him reclaim his country, he would let them run the whole religion and clerical aspects of his country, as well as make it their new headquarters.

    In effect he used us to either kill or drive off the strict, yet more or less "good" people of the Order, so that the evil ones could take over.

    To thank us, he gave my character to the former Squire of the Paladin whom in turn had him forcibly bred with a violent, ultra-strong demon, meanwhile the Rogue got to take the Paladin with him as a trophy prize.

    They vacated the post-battle celebrations, and made haste for their new paradise.

    Sorry no justice, just tragedy and failure. Probably.


    And so everyone resolved to follow and declare war on them, but only as a shaky and already probably to diminish consortium of people. Only by consistent convincing by the more charismatic characters were things able to barely hold together.

    And so our march began to the Rogue's country, gathering strength along the way. Yet in kind, the Rogue and his new allies were also gaining strength, and planned as well to make the captured Paladin their new supreme demon soldier.

    All in all it looked not all that good. But press on we did.

    And so eventually we reached the Rogue's borders. It was either continue or go home, and we weren't going home.

    Of note, everyone along the way had been mustering whatever strength they could and gathering whoever they could from across the lands and our adventures. Even the "good" people of the Order joined with us to bring down this menace.

    As per suggestion of previous threads, as well as having the assistance of the ooze mage, my guy was also able to contact the head Maid of our home, as well as the significantly large number of former enemies and villains whom had in the past been spared by the Paladin and developed feelings for her, forming something of a traveling fan club of would-be suitors.

    And so we proceeded onward to the capitol. We had a whole country separating us though.

    Sorry Titanium Man. You've served me well in the past, but the tragic endings call to me strongly!


    We had quite a sizable force, but our real strength lie in the few exceptional people allied with us (major NPCs, former game characters, etc...). While we would be outnumbered impossibly by the Rogue and his ilk, they would be hard pressed to fight us directly.

    So we started our assault, basically moving from one town to another, driving out the enemy forces while trying not to kill natives. We still looted for supplies though, logistically we had an army to feed and supply.

    The problem was once within the borders we were being attacked from all sides on a constant basis.

    Thankfully the Old Hero and elves came up with an effective idea. Using the ooze mage, they had her create a wall around us that moved with our forces, basically an encircling barrier. 100 feet deep and 100 feet high, with a diameter of many miles, it wasn't so much that it posed a danger to the enemy so much as they had no way to cause any damage or break through.

    Only with decent magic could they pose a threat, but anytime the mage was attacked from some side by magic strong enough to have an effect on her, we just rallied forces to that location. She opened up and we attacked the attackers in turn.

    This did a good job of protecting us, but we were still taking heavy casualties all the way to the capitol, simply fighting too many foes at once at all times.

    Eventually it passed the point where, even if we wanted to turn back or retreat, we wouldn't be able to make it under the attrition of the enemy. The capitol was our only bet.

    People can rage all they want, but the game is over now, so the outcome is settled. This isn't an advice thread, this is a eulogy. For the game.


    Thankfully the DM wasn't enough of a dick to have us get wiped out on the road there, but once arriving at the capitol after many weeks, we were at even more of a disadvantage. Not only had the evil Order members consolidated all their strength across the lands to this place, but as well they had trained the armed forces, especially here, into a great fighting force. As well, the Rogue called upon his relatives from underground to come to his aid, and so they did.

    Still though, there was only one way and it was forward. Probably we would die, but it didn't matter anymore. And so we began the siege of the capitol itself.

    All the while, they seemed to be celebrating something, a countdown each day to what we could only assume was to be the date of the ritual to transform the Paladin into their next First One.

    Now the attack itself was actually somewhat boring, despite being the largest battle in the known world in perhaps hundreds of years. Basically each "force" kind of split up and targeted a different portion of the city, each group intent on breaching it's walls first and each led by a player. As well as the revolutionary and her forces whom infiltrated the city to bring it down from within.

    We didn't want to have the ooze mage simply wash over the city like a tidal wave, as we didn't want to cause unnecessary collateral damage. To the people as well, not just the city. Still though, if needed we would enact that plan. Basically during the assault we gave the civilians within about a week or less to prepare or leave, as encouraged by the revolutionary, after which point we'd use everything at our disposal.

    Until then, each group set about attacking their portion of the walls and outer city, while the enemy inside tried to defend. However now that we weren't on the move, the balls were in our court.

    And so, while after about a week some of the groups were already broken into the city and fighting within, we basically gave the mage the go ahead to drown everything. And that she did, never a more belittling feeling felt by anyone, to see all the dispersed ooze slowly but surely retract to a central focus. A great mountain formed, through which only dim light of the sun gleamed. She waited for a few moments, before crashing down, filling the whole lower city like a basin having water... or jello poured in.

    Anyone who wasn't stupid or suicidal either retreated to the top levels of the city and castle, or went to designated points of safety (alongside our forces who were in the city already). For at least a day, we just boated around leisurely on her surface, some imitating gondoliers and singing.

    Sharing a boat with her, or the part of her she chose to mostly dwell in, I heard her remark that she couldn't remember the last time she's eaten so much. Of note, she made sure to either well up or spit out any people. That is, who weren't enemies.

    There were enough of those.

    Clearly the Rogue and Squire had underestimated us, but still had some cards up their sleeve. By way of magic and miracles and DM ploys and shit, we couldn't simply ride the ooze mage over the upper levels of the city as well, and so had to fight our way to the castle at the top. However, now we outnumbered them, and though they proved a very strong resistance, it wasn't until we reached the castle itself that we reached a stalemate.

    Between strong defenses by the demonspawn and powerful magic by the consolidated mages and priests, it was right at the Rogue's doorstep that we were unable to progress.

    And all the while, they still counted down the days, we couldn't wait.

    And so in the end, with the last day arrived, we gave up trying to breach the defenses by force. Using the help of the thief and his ilk, the HQ force of our army (the PCs, former game characters, major NPCs, etc...) were able to locate a way inside by way of the catacombs beneath going through the mountain.

    Finally we were inside, and though we were able to hold our own against the enemy now (within the castle itself, with the lot of us all mostly very strong characters), but there was little time left.

    We had expected to encounter magic resistance and be driven back, but all the mages were gathered for the ritual.

    We made our way to the great hall, and beyond the throne room converted to a chapel and place of the ritual. And here, guarding the entrance was the Squire with all the demonspawn, as well as the Rogue and all his drow family/allies.

    This was the real battle, the big showdown, battle of the ages. I think my greatest regret was that my guy wasn't apt to fight, and more or less had to hold back, along with the revolutionary and help from the sidelines.

    Still though, our job wasn't to defeat the enemy in here, that was everyone else's job. Our job was to stop the ritual, and so we just waited for an opening to get past. When it came we took it, and the three of us bolted for the throne room, dodging here and there the great skirmish showdown taking place.

    Now it was the Revolutionaries and Old Heros intent to stop the ritual and save the day with an item they'd acquired, but I already had a feeling that things weren't going to turn out just as perfectly as we wanted them to, so I had a contingent plan worked out. The small portion of ooze mage I was able to smuggle in was opposed and thought it was a joke, but when the time came, if ordered I knew she would oblige no matter the cost.

    And so we barged in, with the shout of "ELIZABEEEEEEEEEETH!"

    How buoyant they were. If they had armor or heavy gear on, she absorbed them. It's possible that a number of civilians fit the bill as well, but the vast majority made it out alive. Covered in slime but alive.


    And there was the ritual being performed. Elizabeth was laid out, and First One was ready to kill her (the First One's intent, but they wouldn't actually allow it). With all the wards and shit in place, they were now just restraining the First One, trying to locate and isolate the evil within her, and bring it to the surface so that it could be spread. All they needed now was the miracle.

    However I suppose it arrived in the form of us, because we crashed the party. The head Priestess wouldn't have any of it and opted to devote a portion of her concentration to killing us. Me and the Revolutionary alone would've been slaughtered, but the Old Hero was something else.

    One on one he toed with her, and kept her occupied, while us two tried to shut down the ritual in whatever way we could. Attacking lower level mages, attempting to destroy the wards. It didn't look to working all that well though, and even worse news that the Priestess while cowardly begging for her life was able to trick the Old Hero and deliver the killing blow.

    She then turned to focus on us.

    She stood in as the BBEG for now, and so gave the speech in his/her place. How we were stupid to have come here and it was too late for us. We had posed quite a threat, the biggest they'd ever faced, but now that we were finished they were better for it. If they had to suffer greatly at one point or another, let it be in these early days, so that their future would be bright and untarnished. And she assured us, this was their early days, they had a world still left for them.

    We basically opted to ignore her and continue to disrupt the ritual. She said we were even stupider than she thought, as by now the mages and wards had done their job, and everything relied on her now. Readying a bolt of death she prepared to strike us down.

    I guess she didn't expect the sword through her stomach. The Old Hero stood up from behind, twisting the sword and thanking her for that last bit of information, as he'd been wondering too how they were going to stop the ritual.

    She was shocked and all like "But I thought you were dead!" and in a last act of desperation hit him square in the chest with the death bolt. As the smoke cleared though, he stood resolute and simply took off his helmet revealing little more than bones. With the simple farewell of "Baby, I *am dead!", he kicked her off the sword and off the altar into one of the big pits of fire.

    With that, things looked good. I mean we had no idea what was happening in the main great hall, which side was winning, but the ritual had been stopped. The Priestess was dead, and with her the majority of their religious/clerical strength. If they were to start the Order over again, it wouldn't be off the back of a crazed half-demon churning them out soldiers.

    And for once, at least in that moment of ignorant bliss, everything seemed right with the world. The keyword being ignorant, as things never go the way you want.

    Yes, their great works of grandiosity and despair had died with the Priestess, but so did their control over the First One, and not seconds later as the last vestiges of suppression left her body her eyes snapped open and she let out a terrible and ground-shaking scream or roar or what have you.

    Almost immediately she started tearing apart mages who began to flee in vain. We knew that if she was not stopped, then everyone, not just us but the Rogue and Squire and their allies too would be killed.

    The only problem was, they had no idea of how to stop her. The Old Hero tried engaging her and was promptly shattered like a glass window, while the revolutionary tried reasoning with her but was swatted like a fly into a wall at the far end of the room, grievously injured in the process. Lastly was the Paladin to wake up, and engage the First One herself. Oddly enough despite being unarmed and still not all there from the ritual, she fared better than the others. Perhaps because of the protective wards placed on her body, or maybe she just reminded the First One of someone, who knows.

    The ooze mage, though she knew it would do little good, opted to engage her, but I held her back. I had a plan, I had a plan from the start. It was not a plan I ever wanted or entrained, but I now knew it was necessary, the only way and one I was finally prepared for;

    Without warning I made clear my presence. In that moment, though still locked arm to arm in combat, the Paladin and First One both paused to look. The Paladin started crying happily, expressing how happy she was that I'd come for her. She would probably die now, but she could die happily knowing.

    What she didn't expect though and I knew, was that the First One was also happy to see me. When the Paladin realized this and what was to happen, she started screaming, fighting back with all her might and yelling at me, begging me fitfully to run, get away from here.

    She did a better job than before, as rather than fighting her off, she was just struggling to keep the First One down, who after seeing me had a singular, animalistic want, need to get to me. She kept begging, pleading for me to go, but I just stood there. Not out of fear but resolution.

    I was never myself after what the wife did to me, much less after the First One. I never talked, never paid attention to people and often even actually avoided them. I wasn't strong, I couldn't fight or defend myself, and always was a burden on everyone after the breaking in. Really, it probably would have been better had I died or simply faded out, imprisoned at home.

    But despite it all, I could do at least this.

    Anyway so she tried, did her best to hold down the First One, keep her away from me. She even got some divine assistance, but eventually she threw her aside and made a bolt for my guy.

    He braced, knowing what was coming. She basically tackled him, hugging him and expressing affection. She even pressed his head to her stomach, as if to happily display the thing growing inside her that the pair of them had made.

    This was the First One though. By difference in strength alone, during this process she clean snapped his spine, crushed his ribcage and skull. As well, all sorts of other internal injuries and broken limbs, but not as dire as the aforementioned injuries. Despite her staunch opposition to harming him, she was simply blissfully unaware that she was killing him.

    And finally, as a summation of her feelings at seeing Martin again, she kissed him deeply. It was this that he had planned for, for despite the transfer not having taken place during the ritual, the First One's body was still in the transfer state.

    At this my guy let out a muffled noise/groan, and it was the ooze mage's signal. In a flash, she burst from his backpack, and wrapped him and the First one together, tightest at the head to keep the kiss going. She would have drawn away once she realized she could pass the evil to him, simply as not to give up her power, but she was now forced by the ooze mage, and the transfer successfully took place.

    And the Paladin as before, could only watch. She attempted with all her might as before to stop it, to break it off or get in the way, but the ooze mage forced her back (until the Maid could hold the Paladin back), lest she ruin the chance or have it transferred to herself as intended. She wanted nothing less than to have to do this, to keep the Paladin away while she forced her best friend to suffer, but it was his dying will.

    And so with that, after what seemed like forever (and probably actually was for Martin), the transfer ritual had been successfully performed. Though unconscious, the Cleric had been fully purged of the evil and the new First One had been made.

    Except that he tried to move or do anything, but the new, weak and broken body didn't allow it. At this they couldn't (or probably wouldn't) hold her back anymore and the Paladin was allowed to see him, hold him.

    It was about this time that the rest of the team, successful in their fight against the Rogue and the Squire entered the throne room, to happen upon this scene.

    Now, I may be mistaken, but I believe this was probably the crowning highlight of bawww in the game.

    And with that, things more or less faded out. It picked up again about two weeks later in game time.

    Our forces were helping to rebuild, while people and aid were coming from other lands. The war was over, and the natives were free once more, now was the slow, painful healing process. The revolutionary was put in power with her group, to help work for the best, and improve relations all around.

    As well, the "good" members of the Order began to gather. Not just the soldiers and missionaries, but common members and top leaders that had been kicked out in the rebellion. The Cleric now purged of the evil, could properly lead them and reform their ways to be a genuine force for good, as she had intended them to be from the start all those years ago before the Saint perverted her hopes and dreams.

    She had allot to make up for, and expanded their goals beyond just the religious, but to helping people and the common good across the lands. As for what was left of her time as the First One, she promised the Paladin that she would take care of Martin and hers' unborn child, raise it properly such that it would be the Last One.

    And we can't forget about the Rogue and the Squire!

    I know this will probably make some people rage, but in the end we didn't end up killing the Rogue and the Squire. There was convincing from the Cleric, but it was the Paladin who made the decision.

    Instead they were chained together and banished. Forced by sentries to wander the great eastern desert. Being stuck together, they will either turn on each other or simply starve. Either way they get to spend the rest of their lives together, the perfect pair that they make.

    >In b4 someone suspects a return

    If I know anything about anything of this game and my DM, it's that it's the equivalent to character death. He said that the Rogue should expect to die some way or the other for foiling the whole groups plans and constantly betraying us. This is just that. Sure it's possible that the two of them might survive, but never in these lands again, assuming they can even make it beyond the great deserts to the unknown lands beyond.

    So yeah, I think that about wraps it up on everyone then? Eventually over the coming months, each party member, former character, group or notable NPC went their separate ways to end the game in their own way.

    A bittersweet ending, but not a bad one by any means. But, uh, tell me, what happened to your guy in the end? We know that he's got a powerful, demonic evil bound into his weak and possibly mortally-wounded body, but no actual word on whether or not this means death, or what. I'm more than a little curious as to how things played out. And hopeful that it means the great evil dies with you.

    Left last was the Paladin, who stayed around to ensure that the Order would be on the path to good without her. The Cleric was legit though, so her worries were put to rest. She was personally thanked by the Cleric and the leaders of the Order, and in relation to her receiving divine intervention during her spat with the First One, they were going to see what they could do about contacting the actual main church of the setting to see about having her made a Saint.

    And of course we can't forget Martin. The ooze mage remained. Though most of her body left to go back to storage (and look for more empty dungeons as she'd grown much much larger in the war now), around enough to form a typical gelatinous cube remained.

    Because of the evil within him now, Martin was granted amazing strengths, including healing. Despite his being put on death's door, after much time he eventually recovered. The only problem was he was insane, and ungodly powerful. Hence why the ooze mage remained, so as to contain him if need be when things got out of hand.

    Finally the time came for the Paladin to take her leave, after spending much time researching something. Going of off records and speculation and accounts, she dug up info on a particular individual that had been subject to the evil within the First One, but had possibly survived or even rejected the effect. One of her daughters from long, long ago, fathered by something not of the Order.

    And so she resolved to seek this person out if they still existed, and find out how to help her husband. When asked by the Cleric what she would do, she responded;

    >"Martin has given all that he is, and he is no more. But I'm going to change that."

    and with that the three of them (Martin, Elizabeth, a small human-size capable portion of the ooze mage) heading off to the mountains in the far west.

    THAT'S how it ended.

    Also forgot to mention, that because of the ritual had never been completed as intended, Elizabeth's body still has all the wards and barriers on it.

    So Martin is now binded with the evil, murderous insane and animalistic in nature, impossibly powerful to boot. But when he's near her, he's his old self again.

    Plus not to mention that even when fully possessed by the evil, he's still cripplingly afraid of her. Just that instinctual fear. Perhaps in time though, things will mend themselves.

    I'm hopeful.

    well that's not so much of bad end, your character, his wife, and the only sensible character in this whole setting wander off for some soul cleansing. The old hero out-badasses everything. The evil church is now a good church. The squire and rogue are cast off like a shitty, cocksucking, backstabbing version of paul Atreide left to die of dehydration. The priest has been exorcised. All in all this could have ended worse.

    Well the game is not completely done, we just wrapped everything up and finished it for now. The DM said that we might revisit it in few months to a year, after we've played some other games. He promised to do Shadowrun after I played his little plot-hook character in this one. Some of the others want to do other games as well.

    Of note though, here's the kicker;

    The DM told me after the game it was always his intent all along for this all to happen. It was the best way to power my character up so that he's back to around (actually, with the evil a bit above) the rest of the group in terms of level and strength.

    When I came to him and said that I didn't want my character to "die" by getting married and forced home, he agreed. When he saw that I was serious and wasn't giving up, then and there he started planning on how to get my character back to appropriate level, plan which culminated to the threads you've been following.

    The ooze mage removed it for him at his request, and all that's left, apart from scar tissue, is a simple heart shape.

    Naturally, above where his heart is.

    Simple, gets a point across I guess.

    You're talking about an ooze mage essentially selectively eating his skin as to leave an intended mark. It's not like he could get a coat of arms or something.

    I also liked that one because it didn't divert into such unpleasantness. I also considered writing one where he pulls a Sephiroth (George Newburn style because George Newburn is fucking cool). Also, the sequel I was planning to the Gabranth-style one would have had the paladins bring in a Garland expy. It works even better in retrospect considering what happened to him!
