    Gnolls are some serious shit. But Nagas? Ten times worse. Loud, obnoxious, won't shut up about their "Fallen Empire", and they eat ALL of your food. Great to pretend to be friendly towards if you have a mouse problem though.

    Yes, I have two in my employ. They are loyal to a fault, if a bit dogged in their quest to please me. They seem like faithful guards to the least. They, and the other minions keep me company in my eternal watch over whatever it is I'm watching. Frankly, I've quite forgotten.

    They tend to have some pack tendencies at times.

    if you're firm about some shit, let them know where you stand, you'll be good nine times out of ten.

    For the other one, Tazers and Bats are cheap, and then you're good for nine out of those ten.

    I've met a few gnolls. They get a bad rep but I feel like they are kind of misrepresented in the same way kobolds are.

    There's much worse creatures out there like those god damned lizardfolk. Just walk into their swamp and they are all "Get out of my swamp blah blah blah" and I tell them "If you were literate you would post SIGNS saying this is your swamp and then you'd have an excuse to bitch at people who are just minding their own business."

    I repeat the process with smaller words and it still doesn't work. I've taken to just avoiding swamps all together unless I'm adventuring.

    Except when I tried to give him my money he stabbed me and ran off laughing.

    I stumbled out of the alleyway and tried to get help, but the Orc on the porch across the street just lauged as I passed out.

    Eidolon summoner guy again, bit of an odd question for any other summoners in the thread.
    I know Xara is supposed to be a partner to me and all, and we're getting along great the past month, hard to think of being without her, but well...
    How affectionate is an Eidolon supposed to be? The other night I broke up with my half-celestial girlfriend. It was mutual, we both need to focus more on our classwork and the like, but I was bummed out regardless. Anyway I get back to the dorm and summon Xora up like usual and she's a lot more, affectionate isn't quite the right word, touchy-feely?
    It's just gotten more so today, to the point where I'm trying to fight off confusion boners and she's decided she doesn't need to dress in the dorm because 'I wasn't made with clothes on' to quote her.
    Now I know that somewhere deep down she's responding to me because of the link and all, but I'm not sure how to react to all this, any suggestions?

    Ok, Werewolf guy with allergic girlfriend here again.

    So, I finally worked up enough courage and called her. We had a long discussion. I explained my situation, pretty much telling her everything I told you guys (that I have good control over it, yadda yadda). She said that she was nervous, but was willing to give things a try, especially since I take so many precautions against it.

    So now my question is: is there anything I can do to alleviate her allergies for when we're together? Like something to boost her fortitude or render her immune? Even if it's temporary, that's fine, I'm willing to plan things out with spells and whatnot. Preferably something reasonably priced, I know I probably can't afford anything permanent. I wanna make this work, /tg/.

    As I said in the previous thread, I had a Gnoll roommate my first semester at college (as well as a Gnome, and a Cuban-American). I don't really buy that "Usually Chaotic Evil" bullshit. He got along great with the Gnome, always cracking each other up (kind of hard to get much sleep with them around, though).

    Maybe things would be different if he hung out with other Gnolls. There was this pack that always loitered in the student union, never seemed to go to class. The couple of times we went to the union together, they shouted something at him at Gnoll. I assumed they were heckling him, but with Gnolls its hard to tell. He never wanted to talk about it. I kind of got the feeling they thought he was a sellout. But if getting a good job in accounting and getting out of the shit that happens at temples of Yeenoghu makes him a sellout, I think he made the right decision by selling out.

    Well, my roommate is a Drow guy and because I have to live with him and his schedule(which is based on his sensitivity to light), the school basically guarantees me spots in evening classes. Took me a while to adjust my internal clock. Of course, being back home is throwing me way the heck off. Can't help the neighbors with their farm work at night, y'know.

    Night life with him actually ain't half bad when we head out and do stuff. Sometimes it takes him a bit longer to get ready to head out, what with him being a very sexual person. I keep telling him his impulses are gonna get him killed if he doesn't keep it under control. I shared a story here once, the time we were almost killed by a couple of minotaur ladies who weren't interested in him at all. I ended up doing some things that probably saved our lives. Anyways, he ended up repaying that debt pretty recently. I think I'll share it after I go get some food.

    I hear ya Grond. Folks in this thread don't get it. It's about insurance.

    A Troll laborer let's an employer get away with all kinds of unsafe conditions. Now a days many warehouses keep a couple around for shit jobs and have a can or something to burn any bits that get lopped off in. So long as it's not fire or acid related you can avoid all kinds of accident reports/claims.

    Here's the thing though. All those places are non-union. The Union places have much tighter restrictions. They can't have a troll trade an arm to unclog a jam or something. So the advantage against an Ogre is much lower.

    Basically if you want to do labor and not be behind the 8-ball vs Trolls for the same kind of work? Get into the Union. Plenty of places with solid career paths for an Ogre Laborer.

    There's a manager at a place that does swingsets and park shit that's an Ogre. Been there 15 years. Still has to lift things now and then, but that comes with being as strong as a forklift. He mostly manages from his office. Great guy.

    Grond, I don't know what kind of jobs you had previously, or what you want to do. But have you considered getting a job in construction? Every contractor I've ever known has taken the approach that they can't afford to be racist if it means turning away good workers. Even if you're only average strength for an Ogre, that's above the normally possible Human limit. And with your height and reach, you're probably worth at least two Humans as far as framing and concrete work.

    To be honest, I hadn't realized that some undead got a sense of dread and "The Final Death" when someone like me comes around and I'm more than a little impressed at the courage it took to withstand it for a week.

    With that level of self-control, he'll probably end up being my manager.

    He probably has memory decay. Once undead have been around for a few centuries, they begin to lose old memories, or those memories begin to blur. He might be confusing your wife for a lover from centuries or even thousands of years ago.

    Seriously, if you live in an area that doesn't have a big ogre population you shouldn't have trouble finding a bouncer gig. The main job requirement is to be big.

    Summoner here, just got back from the classroom and I've taken in an aspect from Xara. Being fireproof is a really odd feeling, like heat doesn't bother me anymore to the point where I drank my tea still boiling hot without noticing till the bubbles hit my glasses when I was studying earlier. It's nice, being that little bit closer to her, and she says she's more glad for the protection it gives me then for the slight loss of power on her end.
    I gotta say guys, thanks for convincing me to go through with the summoner program, Xara is one of the best things to happen to me, and if I finish the program with honors in extended summoning and demiplanes then I'll have a shoe in to a really good job for life. Can't thank you all enough.

    So this one time I fell asleep in the woods after taking a hike, and I wake up in a wagon with a bunch of halflings. Next thing I know we're getting crunk as shit and then I somehow I ended up joining some adventuring party full of idiots.

    So I wonder off while they're fighting some dire elk or something and find some little town, rent a horse from some guy and get lost in the Swamp of Endless Ire.

    I can't even remember how I got out, but I ended up living with some Dwarves for a week and then moving to the city. So my point is be easy on hobos, some of us are pretty cool.

    Okay, got that out of the way. So.

    All right, little bit of background information. At school I would wake up every day at about 2 pm or so. Go pick up a late lunch, get classes done, screw around a bit, do some more classes, eat dinner with the posse, then usually head out with my roommate, who we will be calling Phil for the sake of simplicity. Anyways, somewhere along the way a nice, cute Lamia girl starts eating dinner with us. Now, our dinner group is her, Phil, an Elf from New York who we'll call Eddy(real womanizer), and another human guy named Jackie(bit secretive, kind of scary, but overall a cool guy). So basically, with two guys constantly hitting on her and another not being very warm, she kinda developed some kind of attachment to me pretty quickly. It doesn't help that I was a little extra friendly to her, but hey, that's just how I was raised.

    As for those who would suggest bouncer work and bodyguard work, I would rather not have him get himself killed working for some insane wizard. Now, here's a question: How would a female elf go about convincing a male Ogre that it is alright for him not to have a full-time job again?

    He's getting quite ridiculous about the whole ordeal, even though my accounting work more than pays for the bills.

    Insane wizards don't really tend to frequent beer bars or crappy night clubs. The worst he'd ever have to worry about are adventurers and they're far more likely to get fucked up at the bar of the local Holiday Inn so they have a room to pass out in.

    And I'm not sure there is a way. I'm not sure if I'm impressed or horrified by the implications of a relationship like this, by the way. But to get back on point: you're emasculating him. Even if you don't mean to, even if he doesn't think so consciously, there's something to be said for self-sufficiency among ogrekind. To have a woman bringing home the bacon, even more so an ELVEN woman... well, it makes him feel like less of a man. It's the principle of the thing. What would he do all day if not work at what he deems an acceptable job? He wants to feel useful and sitting around while his pointy-eared sugar mama would certainly not help him psychologically.

    Get him interested in a hobby, preferably something that allows him to create something he can sell.

    In my experience, ogres are naturally active people and get restless when they don't have something to do. Modernized ones also find themselves driven to provide, whether for themselves or people they care about.

    Woodcarving is a good example. People like handmade items, and having an outlet for creative energies is equally important when dealing with the sort of person who considers the referring-to-oneself-in-the-third-person thing a sign of... shall we say, mental deficiency.

    A couple weeks of this go by and eventually she gets herself together and asks me out while we're alone. This puts me in a bit of a spot, see, as I already have a girlfriend. I try to turn her down just as softly as I can, but this isn't really something I can do well. I think I kinda screwed up. She looks rather sad and heads off in her own direction.

    A week later Phil and I are out at this bar/grill place that does karaoke. Only karaoke place in a small college town means excellent business, the owner must be some kind of genius. We're just having ourselves a ball, even finding a couple of Goblins to help us sing "Walk Like a Man." After a couple of hours, we start walking back to the dorm. I've really got to pee, so I take a few steps into the closest alley and set up behind a couple trash cans. Just as I'm finishing, I feel something scaly quickly climbing up my leg. I'm about to scream, but a pair of hands cover my mouth. The scaly thing continues coiling up around my body as I'm being pulled into the darkness of the alley. Then she starts whispering to me.

    Surprise surprise, it's our dinner buddy, little Ms. Lamia. She's pretty ticked with me and how I had apparently led her on in some sick little game. I guess she was misinterpreting my actions or something, heck if I know. She moves on to telling me how she'll make me hers and how we're going to be together for such a long time and we'll have such fun as she tightens her grip on me. I remember it being a bit hard to breathe and very painful. Of course, she has to follow it up with the creepiest thing ever. She takes that Lamia tongue of hers and starts licking my ear, even going around the opening. Feels really weird, man, though I'm sure some people get off to that. She moves it down to my neck before whispering to me again about how it was time to make this official or some nonsense. Basically, I've pretty much accepted that I'm getting raped and possibly eaten tonight.

    Xara is studying just as hard as I am, what with both of us having classes most days. The only 'combat' evolutions she's picked up are the ones she came with (though those claws are surprisingly dexterous) and some utility like flight and fire immunity. But yea she's constantly tutoring me in planar matters and math.

    Short answer, don't. It's not just an ogre thing. It's a male thing. We like to feel that we contribute.
    Even if he can't get a job that pays as much as your does, being employed and feeling like he's actually bringing something to the relationship besides his "club" will make him happier and more confidant.
    And that will help boost things in other departments...

    For the record, the relationship works just fine. Magic is a wonderful thing.

    He is most assuredly NOT mentally deficient. He's very clever; he fixed my father's house with the merest of fuss. And, to top it off, he figured out how to fix the shoddy electrical job done to it. Needless to say, my father was impressed by him.

    He keeps himself busy collecting and painting little "minis" as he calls them. Crude little things that don't even remotely resemble Elves or Orcs, but I do see your point.

    WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN OUT OF NOWHERE PHIL JUMPS IN. Holy crap I never knew just how agile that guy was. He just shows up, jumps off her head, and lands somewhere behind my field of vision. This ticks her right off and she's hissing up a storm at him. He tells her something along the lines of, "Let him go now and I won't have to show you just how pathetic you are." Something like that. Of course, she's confident in her abilities so she tightens her grip on me a little more. This puts me at the point where my vision was starting to get a bit spotty. Next thing I know she's been kicked in the face and scratched several times on her arms. Must've really caught her off guard because she loosened up and took her hands off my mouth. I remember his next phrase quite vividly.
    "I've already proven myself against you, now release him and slither back to your filthy hole before I show you what I can do with a knife."

    Did I mention that he carries a Bowie knife? Because he totally carries a Bowie knife. Thing's pretty nasty.

    Anyways, she drops me and lunges at where his voice was coming from. About a second later he lands beside me, knife drawn and bloody. She screams and slithers out of the alley, into the light, and down the street, holding her shoulder the whole way. We walk back to the dorm in silence. When we get to the room, he's the first to talk.

    "So, I'd say that makes us even."
    "Yeah pretty much. Thanks man."
    "Oh don't worry about it. But she's probably stalking you, man. We're not splitting up at night for a while, got it?"
    "Works for me."

I know that technically, faeries are considered an 'alien nation' by most governments, and no one expects them to act like us, but it's only when you walk into the market that you realize just how weird they really are. Now I'm a werewolf, formerly human, so I'm not precisely mister vanilla myself, but I didn't expect the buggers to be selling memories, sunlight, curses, and other peoples' gifts openly, never mind them trading destinies like other people trade bets. Fortunately for me, I was smart enough to realize I was in over my head and left before I agreed to anything. So, does anyone else have experience enough with the fae to tell me whether to try my hand at the faerie bazaar, and what kind of stuff I might look for, or what to avoid doing?

    Pretty much everyone I've asked said the same thing, including my Pack Alpha and the Alpha Bitch. I admit, I was actually hoping for a different answer, since some of those offers sounded mighty tempting.

    Tiefag reporting in. I was trying to get a job working for the police on night patrols, and let them know my abyssal origins off the bat, I've only been in trouble a few times for fighting in public, but no arrests. They were cool with it. Told me to come in tomorrow for an interview.

    I put on some cologne to mask my odor problem, style my hair to hide the horn on my forehead, make myself look respectable you know? We gotta do that or else we get dirty looks. Not my fault my great great great great great great grandmother was banged by an incubus.

    I go to the police station first thing in the morning, and halfway to the reception five feet into the building, I get a call on my cellphone.

    >> "[Tiefag], I'm afraid the position has been filled."
    >> "How could it? It's 7 in the morning!"
    >> "Well we just found someone better for the nightwatch, he came in 30 minutes before you and we love him, I'm sorry."

    Then he hung up on me. Who got the job? A fucking Aasimar! I can use a gun, I know martial arts, I can see down the length of the street, speak three languages quite well, and they hire some upperfag who literally walked in the door 30 minutes before I did!

    Fuckin' racism is still alive! Just bullshit man, just fuckin' bullshit.

    All right! All right! I admit it!

    I slept with the guy who lives in the apartment next to mine!

    I-I didn't plan on it, it just sort of happened. He gave me his backup keycard in case he lost his and I came home so drunk that night I didn't realize I was at the wrong door and by the time we figured my mistake curfew had set in and he offered to let me stay...

    A-and I was so... drunk and he was so... so nice and I think my perfume got him a little high or something and... one thing led to another and we... and I... uhm...

    And I don't care what any of you think about it! Who cares if he's Avak'nu? He's a good man, he's kind, he's polite and he's nice to me...

    Yeah, tell me about it. Same thing for us werewolves. Everything's fine until it comes out about what I am, and suddenly it's all 'please don't eat me mister big bad wolf', 'get out of here before you enter some kind of death fury', and the occasional confused fangirl asking me if I sparkle in the sunlight. I keep telling them, I'm only ever -forced- to change under the full moon, I'm never under any kind of supernatural compulsion to kill, and I can change back and forth freely whenever I'm not under the full moon. If I happen to kill someone and devour his flesh, it's because I wanted to, not because the full moon turned me into a mindless, rampaging murder machine. And yet they seem to still call me a monster. Just turned away a paladin who was looking for the 'mindless beast that stalks the land by moonlight', or some other damn fool thing. Fucking adventurerers.

    The occasional person. I give them all the same speech. I tell them that your First Change is almost definitely going to be the most unpleasant experience of your life. You can feel every shifting bone, every sprouting hair, and there's absolutely no anesthetic feeling like there is on subsequent changes. All those stories about mad werewolves going on rampages? They were driven mad by their First Change, at least temporarily. And after that, yeah, you change. Hard not to when you know you can become a half-ton killing machine at a moment's notice, and when everyone you meet smells like meat. They usually turn green and run off before long. Those that stay...I take to the pack for testing. Most wash out. Maybe two out of a hundred end up joining us. It's a good life, if you can make it.

    Liberty is your first breath of fresh air after a lifetime of slavery to Man.

    Liberty is the last breath of your oppressors, squealing for mercy with your claws at their throat.

    Liberty is the fire in your lungs and the ice in your heart as you drive your blade into human flesh, the quiet smile when your explosive runes detonate in a fat trader's wagon, feeling the blood of new scars and old enemies running down your body- And knowing it was all worth it.

    Liberty is ours. Join us, and it will be yours too.

    Any posers that try to play tough with our pack get to prove their claims. Werewolves don't put up with that shit, and braggarts usually don't last long. Can't count the number of young pups I've killed because they think my graying hair and my scar collection say I'm old and on the outs.

    Me? Bloodline, similar to yours. All it really does for me is make it incredibly difficult to be dishonest, leave me stuck in situations like this: >>17275886, and occasionally lets me patch people up when they're hurt.

    Just remember that, over the course of history, hundreds of thousands of people have gone through struggles similar to yours and come out on the other side. The world has a way for anyone to do anything, but it's fickle in that it rarely gives you the answer on a silver platter.

    Always use a Sigil of Demonic Warding, you never know if your lover is a succubus or incubus in disguise. It only costs fifty cents, and could possibly save your immortal soul.

    The heraldry means nothing, and even if it does to someone else, the only important thing is that he was being dumb about his gear. Pride and being a shining beacon of hope is all well and good, but if you're going to do something stupid like put your life on the line to save people from "horrible creatures of the night," you might as well be smart about it.

    That would likely be one of the Called To Action paladins I talked about here: >>17276998. Chances are good he'll either wash out and die, or he'll survive long enough to learn the Do's and Don'ts that veterans pick up.

    I don't mean to tell you your business, but it might be a good idea to keep an eye out for him. If he makes it, he could be a good friend. The abilities people like me gain are fairly useful in a pinch and it never hurts to have allies.

When all the treaties were ratified and we had to become respectable types all of a sudden, that shit went out the window, on the condition that no one ever brought it up, on either side. Ever. Paladins who want to kill me for that are breaking the law just as much as if I were to go out and devour some stupid adventurer fucking up my forest. So get over yourself and realize that not all species conform to your black and white ideas of morality.

    >and olives.

    My Causin ate an Entire Olive Tree once. Just, like, the whole Tree. No funny joke. Just ate it.

    It was mostly a tongue in cheek comment. Eating a human for a giant would be like eating a mouse or a grass hopper for a human. A Mouse or a Grass hopper that could list off the reasons why it'd didn't want to be eaten and why you shouldn't do it.

    The whole Giant=cannibles thing is "mostly" a myth.

    Thanks to my family's contacts and means i have been fortunate enough to get into the Initiates, Yup, the Initiates of the Sevenfold Veil.

    That is the problem you see, apparently the Initiates are considered a bunch of arrogant racist Prime Material Plane supremacists by certain parts of the population.

    Anyone know if that is true? They are a bit stuck up and arrogant, but i have only been at the campus for a few months and due to the fact that they hew closely to that old "No one must know our secret lore." model of magical learning i still have not got a solid grasp on their politics and views on extraplanars.

    Is it crazy to want retribution for the suffering we endured? For the rampant expansion of human territory to be undone?

    The treaty ended the wars, but did not undo the damage. Holds taken in blood remain trodden under human boots. Mass murderers masquerading as adventurers- Retired in luxury, surrounded by their stolen wealth! Where is the justice? Where is the retribution? Where is the pain we suffered but caught in our throats and ours alone to endure?

    The fact that there are people like this guy: >>17276825, who's probably never even seen another plane, is irrelevant and it probably extends to those who couldn't even survive in the planes that their ancestors are from.

    You want a pre-treaty story? Fine...let me tell you one of my favorites.
    All right, this was back in the bad old days before the treaties were ever thought of. Werewolves were a law unto themselves. If you were smart, and human, you gave us tribute once a month and left us the fuck alone, and we didn't touch you. Worked well for both sides, right?
    Well, this one group didn't think so. God-buggerers, every one of them, called themselves the Flame of God, vowed to cleanse the forest of all the evils that infested it. And by cleansing it, they meant burn it to the fucking ground. Great believers in the cleansing nature of flame, they were. Well, quite a few people were upset by that. Dryads, the fae, even a few fucking pointy-ears were in on this.
    So one night, dead of night, not a soul awake, we all descend on this little hamlet where they made their base. Anyone who kept to the old ways, iron horseshoes on the door, a saucer of milk for the fairies, a sprig of wolfsbane to let us know they paid tribute, they were left alone. Anyone who flew a Flame flag, or tried to attack us, got dragged off. Not killed, that was too good for them.
    Once we got back, we divided our captives, maybe thirty guys all in all. We split it so many ways, the pack only got three. Those three we turned, and dragged to the most ass-backwards, remote part of the forest for their First Change. Two of them killed each other before the night was through. One...decided that maybe burning everything evil wasn't such a good thing now that he was 'evil' and joined us. From what I hear...those three got it easy compared to their friends. Apparently, the fae decided to teach them the hard way why you don't fuck with the forest, ever.
    Of course, all that is in the past now. I don't eat people or turn them, and paladins don't fuck with me or my pack. It all works out so much better, and if things are boring now, eh, I'm an old graymane anyway. Not my world anymore.

    That said, you should always remember to use a sieve. Take what's useful and leave the rest. Whether the other planes are actually trying to destroy our home is irrelevant, because if it's true we won't have a shot in Hell of stopping it and there's no sense in ruining a perfectly good mind by trying to tackle an impossible task.

    The pre-treaty times were essentially a crap-shoot of suffering and ignorance.

    My Grandfather regularly had to run off with a Grain Silo strapped to his back with his arms full of Livestock so he could provide for his family.

    But more to the point it also made everybody really, really, cruel. Now My grandfather had a personal vendetta against Animal people after a Bearman Werebear? BEARPERSON slashed his big toe and he had to get it amputated or lose it to infection.

    He Enacted his revenge by doing something equal parts eccentric and poetic: he essentially made a tunic completely out of Animal people hides.

    Werewolves, Deermen, Werebears, Pigmen, etc..etc..

    It wouldn't have been "so" disturbing if not for the fact that when you keep the heads on hides there are always those weird little eye holes in the pelts.
    He made sure every single one of those pelts "heads" were looking right at where his Toe stub was.

    He figured if the Animal people wanted to maim him so badly they could spend all of eternity admiring their work.

    An oath was made- Before my time, but of my blood. To say too much would give away my location, but I will say it was a good oath to a great creature; one dying, one watching its way of life die with it. Slain when those refusing to abide by the treaty were brought under its thrall.

    In so short a time, the struggles of so many were forgotten... We vowed never to forget. Never to become docile, nor to forsake our independence- for we know the peace of Man. It is a withering death. To see your children taken into their communes and pushed into their ghettos, clinging to human culture and convenience while the ways of old languish in their mind, and are erased altogether.

    We know. We have seen the face of Man, and it has seen us- And it is now the Shining One, but it was not always. We will not let the truth be buried with our ashes, rendered from flesh by the slaves of the Unspoken One.

    The old days in a nutshell, frankly, like I already said. Half of the shit I did was done in the name of repaying old insults. The other half was stopping new ones before I started.
    Yeah, these days I work at a hunting supplies store. Apparently, there's a certain...charm in having a graymane werewolf give forestry advice to pups. I don't see it myself, but enough people seem to lap it up that I make good cash. Even with my bluntness.

    Stop being such a self-righteous prick. You're obsessed with avenging injustices seven generations removed from you. You're just being short-sighted and bloodthirsty. The treaties were a big hatchet that we all had a part in burying. You act like no human has ever suffered at the hands of a kenku. My great-grandfather was at Naples when Kawrak's murder descended on the townsfolk in the last week of the Neapolitan Conflict. He never spoke of it but we've gone through his memoirs. His hands shook violently when he wrote about the retreat. Children and the elderly were singled out and eaten alive because they couldn't fight back.

    ...if you are reading this letter, then that's one blasted thing I can count on these lummoxes to do right. I can only hope that Brugok didn't pummel too many letter-carriers until someone figured out what I had instructed him to do.

    I am a junior wizard, apprentice of Archmage Sontius Saius. I was apprehended by a tribe of ogres while collecting herbs, and I was only able to save myself from certain death by casting an illusion to project to them the figure of a ogress. This only led them to carry me back to their camp, where they brutalize each other in an attempt to court me. The oafs didn't even question why I weighed a fifth of what I should have, or why I only eat a tenth.

    I cannot escape them. In order to not arouse their suspicions, I am forced to... "enhance" the facade occasionally. I am not sure I will ever live down the shame of what I am doing for self-preservation. Please, if you or anyone you know is capable, come either free me or put me out of my misery.

    Anyone know what to do about an epic level wizard that still run around with a lot of pre-treaty instincts?

    Old man Fibbert is a good neighbor but he is kind of scaring the crap out of us when he disintegrates someone because of threatening behavior or otherwise antagonizing him, he don't actively track down people to hurt them, but when the Three Fangs gang broke into his house all of them just disappeared the next day. No one saw anything. Hell, for that matter most of us is having a hard time remembering that there even were a Three Fangs gang at all.

    This is kind of ruining the neighborhood, lots of racial distrust building up. Everyone not Human, Dwarf, Elf, Halfling is convinced that it is all a part of some prelude to a pogrom and they have begun striking back, of course the smart ones avoid Fibbert and target innocents instead.

    Report him to the Mage's college. Every race polices their own, and sounds like this prick hasn't made many friends in his time leading up to 'retirement'. Nothing says 'satisfaction' like watching that policing in action. I remember, once, there was this vamp snacking on young girls, like fourteen and thirteen. Back in the old days, he'd have been fine dust spread over seven neighborhoods once whoever got there first was finished. Instead, we called up the Courts and told them about him, and the very next night he was carried off by three different Elders. Last I heard, they had him scrubbing their toilets all night, every night for the next five centuries.

    The violence can stop. Liberty fights for what should have been in the treaty to begin with- Filling in of the Sidemont iron mines and returning the ancestral aeries of the kenku, the ogres' barrows, and a memorial erected to Algroth, the Emerald Dragon. In addition, everything below South Harbor must be returned as the Packlands and the human settlements there removed.

    Lastly, we have a list of the worst offenders against many species of monsterkind, almost all former 'adventurers'. Of the some 130 people on it, some are dead, but many are either elderly or, worse yet, rendered ageless or renewed due to magic or potions. A special tribunal must be established to locate and punish these people, and those that have already died must have their descendants pay reparations to go towards memorials for the fallen.

    The rulers are deaf to our pleas. The people have turned away from them. They will be made to hear until things are set right.


    Naples was not our proudest moment, but in his later years Kawrak was little more than a creature of bitter hatred. Many followed him because they saw him as he was when he was young- Charismatic, driven, and a great tactical thinker. When he ordered slaughter, good kenku obeyed out of the belief that it was some grand tactical feint, or it was preventing greater bloodshed. Maybe at some point that was true, I do not know, but perhaps if he was not raised seeing so much violence perpetrated by humans he would not have become what he did.

    So. I'm technically human. But I've been cursed, or blessed if you want to go by the caster's point of view. Long story short, my car broke down, I tried to get a lift into town but turns out these cultist who worshipped a tiger god of some sort used me in a ritual. They wanted to bring said tiger god to Earth and rule the world, y'know the usual stuff. But they needed a vessel.

    Which happened to be me.

    So they picked me up. Konk me out. Strap me to a table in their temple. Transform my body, then do the ritual, but part-way through it, a rival cultist (of some sort of snake god or something) bursts in, kills my attackers, and in the chaos I escaped.

    But now I'm a 800 something pound tiger man. Every mage collective, wise sage, priest, doctor and what have you all say my condition is irreversable. So now I guess I'm no longer human.

    What do I do now? I lost my job (because who wants a fucking tiger person to be a chef, I would need an entire body hair net), my girlfriend left me for a fucking minotaur, and now I get hit with racial slurs everywhere I go. The law enforcement believe I'll freak out and eat small children..

    Today Old Man Fibbert shopped at Gemshas corner store, bought the newspaper and some donuts. When i entered the store i could feel a veritable wall of hate and sheer terror.

    You see, Gemsha`s younger son was one of the Three Fangs, and he disappeared just like the rest, apparently from what the rest of us have been able to piece together Gemshas husband decided to get revenge and we believe he poisoned Fibberts donuts.

    And in a few hours he promptly mutated into a hideous shrieking blob, in the end a few neighbors put him down in a mercy kill.

    Anyways, in the corner store today, a dead man could have sensed the tension and emotions, and yet Fibbert, he did not notice. Just continued his same old forgetful old teacher routine.

    Ask for its registration number. It's legally obligated to provide it. From there you can contact the owner and ask it to remove the being from the premises.

    If its owner has been slain and it's seeking revenge then you need to get the authorities involved. That means that there is a possibility of murder or manslaughter and its vengeful impetus counts as evidence and cannot be interfered with.

    If it's unregistered then you can just call a removal service. Many of them employ beholders who will just stare at the thing while they cut it down and load it up for transport. It's one of the few jobs they can reliably get. The sane ones anyway.

    And getting the authorities involved when there's a golem in lockdown just makes trouble for everyone. He could be recharging, for all you know; is your building atop a particular set of ley lines? I've had golems lurk in my office, it's built atop an intersection for proper rituals.

    Temporary my ass. I've known people to go permanently berserk from it. Usually people who never should've been turned in the first place. Weaklings, children, that kind of thing. In the old days...they were usually left for the paladins to clean up. Now...we have to put them down ourselves. It's the worst duty a pack can call you to, frankly.

    Your pack is your family. That's the first law. You obey your Alpha, you obey the Alpha Bitch, you obey the Great Alphas, and you never, ever hurt your packmates or deny them what you can freely give. Take care of your packmates, and they'll take care of you.
    The second law is harder: Keep your own sacred. That basically means...don't fuck with other weres. We're all one big family, and if you've ever seen a holiday domestic dispute, you know what that can mean sometimes. The second law says you can't just up and kill another were over less than a capital offense. Nonfatal stuff only, and you need a legitimate reason to issue a challenge to someone else.
    For approaching a pack for the first time, be humble, be respectful, bring gifts. Your Alpha is your boss, your father, and your priest. Show it. Act like someone they want to associate with, but don't deceive them about who you are. Don't get disheartened if they run you through a lot of hoops. They're checking to see if you're tough enough. Prove that you are. We value strength and toughness, so show it. Kick ass, take names, stand up for yourself, and don't take no for an answer. But don't be too aggressive, or they'll think you're feral. It sounds complicated, but it's surprisingly easy. Any other questions?

    Hmmm. Not good.

    Me and Krulth flipped a coin, he lost so he had to talk to it.

    He tried that registration number dealie.

    It would only give him the first four numbers, Og28-. And it added that it was on a sanctioned venegance mission from the Church of Vecna.

    If we wanted to know more we would have to take it up with the department of homeland security.

    This is bad is it not?

    Terrible? That thing is on private property. And yes, it is a thing. They don't have souls and there are certain people that would argue that it's an abomination to begin with. Most elementals are non-sapient but it's still cruel to forcibly bind them into service as a glorified engine for a personal slave made of inanimate matter.

    It's no different than illegally parking your car. Well, slightly different in that your car can't go on a rampage and kill a dozen people if left unattended. The removal service is legal, usually cheap since they retain salvage rights, and they're required by law to document the capture of the elemental and turn it over to planar denizen control to release it to the proper dimension.

    You've been looking for elven and Drow partners, I bet. The cliches are just too deeply ingrained. The only time you'll find someone willing to treat you like an equal would be if you hooked up with another Drow gal or were willing to expand your proclivities to races that have less interaction with the Drow or greater respect of partner equality, like Centaur or maybe gnome

    Though this guy,

    who didn't seem to realize that I was a human, transformed by other humans into a tiger person would be a good choice..

    Nah. He's probably some guy looking for attention. S'okay buddy, I lost my girl to a animal person too.


    Can I even breed? I'm not sure, even if I could even find Missus Tiger-Lady I may be sterile or something. I s'pose I'd meet a nice were-tigress.

    But a race of tiger people..s'pose we would need a different name..

    Well I was a Power Ranger's fan. We could be called the Saba!

    Inform your boss immediately. Like, right now. I don't care if he's balls-deep in a whore, if he's not answering his phone knock on his goddamn door and tell him what's up.

    You'll want to get the company's lawyers involved immediately. And do call up homeland security and verify this thing's claims. If it doesn't check out then you need to call the cops because something very, very illegal is going on.

    adoption is always an option if you want kids.

    There are certain people that would argue /I/ am an abomination to begin with simply because the circumstances of my birth involved me worming my way into the brainstem of an intelligent human (actually, former elf, but that's hardly the point) and growing into a full-fledged parasite, then obliterating the brain and intelligence to replace with my own.

    It doesn't change the fact that I'm the most successful attorney at the firm, or that I have rights; so does that golem.

    Don't tell me about *legal* salvage rights; if someone damaged the golem's wards because of something as inane as a lawn ornament arranged
    improperly and you let it get scrapped, you're the one who has to pay their towing. Let your boss or your co-worker deal with it, don't get involved.

    I've been told I'm an excellent lover, but lacking in genitalia, I suspect it would mean very little to you. If you want polite intellectual conversation and stimulation, however, I am always free for dinner with an intelligent drow.

    I know that feel, sis. I'm a changeling who passes most of the time to avoid suspicion. The one time I don't get discriminated against is from freaks who want to take advantage of my "natural talents" in bed. Freaks should be read as everyone. And everyone asks, eventually, be it for futa or a celebrity. Even the people who you thought understood that the form you take on a day to day basis is who you see yourself as, both in looks and gender.

    Adoption does not a race begin. Unless you give the kid some of your blood or something. As you are a special and possibly unique case, this is inadvisable.

    Forced Transformation is still "First Change" on the books, and most judges and police won't know the difference or care anyhow.
    >> Anonymous 12/20/11(Tue)04:40 No.17278588
    No, people argue that you're an abomination because once a month you have to go down to death row and pick out a meal if you don't want to die. The circumstances of your creation haven't been relevant for a while.

    Golems are property and they don't have rights beyond that. If a golem can't provide registration then that's not the guy's problem. If it's been there for 24 hours so it's officially abandoned. Ergo, it can be disabled and scrapped with no legal recourse.

    But it seems that this line of debate has been rendered moot due to the whole homeland security thing. I'd hate to be in that guy's shoes right now.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. There are a lot of weres going into police work these days. Our strength, speed, and scent abilities are rather valuable to that line of work. And any Were will be able to tell a transformed person from a First Change were at a glance. Even the pups have probably had to do a Blood Hunt on some poor mad bastard at some point. And if the arresting officer knew you weren't acting as a Changed...things get messy, fast.

    Oh believe me, I have a history with the king's mindshapers, I do. My ventures are what they call "alternative coping procedures", which they recommended I explore instead of being molded for the fourth time. I go under the foci again, I might not know who I am when I come up. It might be my last resort, though, either that or I respond to that ad in the Weekly Necropolitan about the "young-at-death woman seeking a 'lively' companion".

    Yes, the homeland security argument tends to default everything.

    And as for eating something on death row, what are *you* going to do with your prisoners? Kill them? Oh, no, that's *much* more humane than allowing us to feed, my apologies; we'll just die over here while you throw your delicious prisoners away.

    How very forward.

    Shit gets worse, Homeland security wont talk much but apparently the golem is:

    "A specialist in handling situations regarding information theft" and "we would appreciate your cooperation in this matter and would encourage you to lower your wards so that the matter can be brought to an end."

    Well, the latter wont happen (yet), thanks to the Castle Doctrine and Supreme Courts corporations are people too stance our lawyers are stalling the matter.

    But yeah, if you have a legitimate outlet then go for it. There's nothing wrong with sexual... well, "deviance" has such a negative connotation, but that's technically what it is. Fuck, my brother's married to a tar-keen or however the hell you spell it. My dad freaked out when he first found out about it but we've come to accept Tak-Kli as part of the family now. The pressure to have grandkids is all on me now though, even though I don't really have time for a girlfriend...

    But anyway, good luck to you, friend.

    Well, seeing as they're only capable of speaking via financial transactions that's a given.

    I had a roommate who used to send in customer suggestions to corporate totems all day, every day, just to get the one cent donations with the "Thank you for your input" transaction description in his bank account. He was able to pull in what amounted to minimum wage that way.

    He fucked up and accidentally bound himself into Wal-Mart's service by forgetting to click something on a form once. He's got three months of unpaid live-in greeting work left, last I checked.

    To the brave Mr. Snakes-for-Arms

    Thank you very much for facilitating my departure from that ghastly hovel. I was running out of homunculi to disguise as ogre infants, and no matter how adept I may have been at approximating ogre standards of beauty, I would not have been tolerated long if I weren't able to produce more heirs to the bone and feces throne, as it were.

    As promised, I've tried to put in a good word with Master Saius, though I'm not sure how much clout I have with him now that I've been reduced to, as he phrases it, "a pitiful, sullied worm of a man". If he does grant you an audience I'm sure your condition would be simple for him to assist you with.

    I must apologize for not being able to help you myself, but I haven't the proper licensing yet to reconfigure anatomy. I'm also most sorry that I did not stay in person to thank you, but I had several pressing needs to take long baths in boiling pitch.

    Mystery solved.

    After the boss threatened to turn off the wards unless someone told him why the golem was there, people caved.

    Its all bad, seems like the programmers got hopped up on some druid weed, decided that : "Like, information just wants to be free, dude." and hacked some government contractor and then they put it on the net.

    So now the government is pissed, the church of Vecna is pissed and the contractor is pissed.

    Oh, and our programmers are probably toast too. See, that golem there? It infallibly knows who is guilty or not of a crime, it is created by the church of Vecna but have been verified as unbiased and unflawed by the Pantheic Council.

    So that thing out there will be chopping up the programers like dry kindling before they can even utter words like : Due process, jury or mercy.

    Well, my shift is over in ten minutes. Then i will go home and then i guess i will see tomorrow if i still have a job or a place to perform that job in.

    The easiest way is to get the affliction removed. If you can't do that, you ought to see one of the specialists in discriminatory cases. I've heard about a few people who get off the list based on proving such things as 'well you can't /prove/ it's an unstable affliction' and so on, but it takes a skilled lawyer.

    If you're in New Jersey like the other fellow, look up Larry. If you're in New York, I might be able to help you out, or at least talk to some of my associates.
