You are Christopher Phillips, previously just another teenage nerd living in a small English town, and a lot of things have changed in your life since you died. For example, you've never previously been asked to pay for something in blood.Despite some ominous visions, you've decided to attend the party that Isabella Donaldson, the most popular girl in school, is throwing tonight. You need to protect your friends. You need to make sure she doesn't find some other way of taking control of you. And you very much need to make her understand who's the top predator around here.You've not gone into this without a plan, of course: with the help of Avril Dunway, your possibly-Fae companion, you'll persuade her to agree to a magically-binding deal that will prevent her taking control of you or your friends. You're certain you can have Isabella wrapped around your finger and ready to agree to anything by the end of the night. Just to make sure, you've gone to Jason Souza, an old friend of yours who now dabbles in various shady chemicals, to get some special help. He told you that if he got something rare and powerful, its price wouldn't be measured in money, but you still weren't expecting him to ask for a drop of your blood in payment.Jason is still looking at you. He's holding a tiny glass vial in one hand. The liquid inside is a solid black.((Cont.))
>>25932055"Sounds weird, huh? But I don't set the price, not for something like this. Guaranteed to blow her mind, leave her wanting nothing but you. Accept no substitutes." "Why blood? Does it have to be mine?" "Afraid so. There's something special in your blood, apparently, and someone wants a sample. Can't say much more than that. Take it or leave it."Avril is tugging slightly on your arm.If it'll get you Isabella, it's worth it.No way. You'll find another way to get to her.Try and persuade Jason to tell you a bit more about what he wants with your blood.Find out what Avril wants.((Archives at http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Monsterhearts%20Quest . There will also be a pastebin coming later for the second fade-to-black scene.))
Try and persuade Jason to tell you a bit more about what he wants with your blood.-[x] Whatever the reason, refuse it.Turn your shadowruns on, do not give any blood.
>>25932066[x]f=ind out more, try to find out why they want it. I agree that refusing regardless is a good plan though.
>>25932066((Writing now. Also as a note: based on some quick maths I did last thread, rolls from now on will be best of two rather than best of three. Otherwise the odds are too far from the base Apocalypse World probabilities, which really skews the effects of various stats and powers.))
[X] Try and persuade Jason for more information.-[x] Act ignorant of Magic and stuff. Normal people don't believe in it, so pretend![x] Nevertheless, forfeit the deal.
>>25932280"That's still not very comforting, Jason. You can't tell me anything more about what someone wants with my blood?"He scratches the back of his neck and looks a little sheepish. "I don't actually know all that much more. Just that whatever it is, they want it bad." He taps the bottle. "This isn't the sort of thing they hand out lightly, you know. Coke, speed, I can get stuff like that just by snapping my fingers, but this is a full-on lust potion. There's something special about you all of a sudden. Even if you don't take the deal, I'm sure there's a lot of other things my sponsors can offer you. Just... think about it, okay? It's not all that much, in the grand scheme of things. Just a drop of blood.""I'll think about it, yeah. But not right now. This is just too weird for me."Jason shrugs. "Alright, man, up to you. You know where to find me if you change your mind."Avril relaxes a little as you walk away. "That could have gone badly. I could smell corruption all over him, but I didn't dare say anything in front of him. Some powers it's never a good idea to make deals with, even when they can make good on their end of the deal. The price always ends up being higher than you think."Continue circulating downstairs. See if there's anyone else here you know.Head upstairs and get started with IsabellaFind somewhere private with Avril and make some more plans.Other
>>25932427>Continue circulating downstairs. See if there's anyone else here you know.
>>25932427[x]Continue circlingMight as well mingle like we said we would. Besides we wanted to make Isabella a bit eagerright?
[x]Continue circulating downstairs. See if there's anyone else here you know.
>>25932456>>25932581Damnit guys stop agreeing or else this quest is gonna get wierd.
>>25932684You and Avril continue to walk around, taking in the main party. It's a big house, and you doubt you'd have time to check each and every room without spending a couple of hours. Still, you make your way through the main party areas - a dining room where a massive old table is being used to host a buffet with every type of snack imaginable, a room that's been cleared out to serve as a dancefloor, the pool area (which continues to be seriously impressive simply by virtue of it being the only private pool you've ever seen), and two rooms you have to hurry through with your hands over your mouths because of all the smoke in the air. Fortunately it doesn't seem to be spreading much beyond those rooms.Most of the popular kids from various school years are here. The sports guys are here, of course - the football team, the rugby team. You see Zack and Apollo doing shots - Zack waves at you as you pass and gives you a thumbs up when he notices Avril. Apollo just stares blankly at you, then goes back to his drink.By the time you get back to the main entrance to the house, Cassandra has come in, and makes her way through the crowd as soon as she spots the two of you. "Not upstairs yet? You really shouldn't keep Isabella waiting like that. And so stiff, too. This is a party, relax, enjoy yourself. If you want, I could always give you a massage. They always help me relax. No? Well, your loss. Maybe later."Time to go deal with Isabella?AbsolutelyOne last thing...
>>25932917I'm curious as fuck to go upstairs but my paranoia is saying to get the fuck out of the house.Say to Isabella that her party wasn't that good to keep you entertained enough at school.I'm voting to get the fuck out of this party.
>>25932917[x] One last thing maybe see if you can convince Cassandra to show you that funny video that was going around on peoples phones.
>>25933025We have to know what happened
oh, i was getting bored, nice to see this one started.well, lets see how fucked we are and how we can turn things around.
>>25933140"Actually, there is one thing I'd like - I heard there was a video going around, something someone took earlier today. Sounds like it was pretty funny."Cassandra shrugs a little. She manages to make it look graceful nonetheless. "Eh, if you like. You really had to have been there, but it's still pretty good to watch." She pulls out a mobile phone, taps at it a little and turns the screen to you. You can make out Jill, sitting on the floor of the showers. There's a whole bunch of girls laughing and shouting out of shot, and small, blurred white objects are being thrown at her. Jill eventually scrabbles to her feet, grabbing her clothes and fleeing. The camera flicks back to the showers, where there's a small patch of blood being washed away, turns to Isabella's laughing face, and then cuts out. "That's all of it. I should head upstairs now, sorry. See you up there." She turns at the top of the stairs to give you a brief wave before heading deeper into the mansion.When you get to the stairs, you can see there's a few well-muscled guys screening people at the bottom. They give Avril a glance, then wave you both through.Upstairs is quite a bit quieter. The corridor that leads in from the landing ends in a T-junction, with doors down both turnings. There's quite a bit of loud moaning and grunting coming from the left hand fork.Open the door to the rightOpen the door to the leftThere are a few smaller doors along the corridor. Let's open some of them.
>>25933354Oh christ, how in the hell did someone in England miss out on sex ed? Welp time to start making moves so that Jill is more comfortable in her own skin and doesn't think her bleeding for a week straight once a month without dying is unnatural.[x]Right hand fork, the silence interests me.
>>25933354>[x]Open the door to the rightlets go with this one.i was suspecting this, but isnt she a bit old for her first period? well, anyways, we can use this to get closer to her with avril.
>>25933354[x] Smaller doorsThat's the noisiest option.>>25933382>how in the hell did someone in England miss out on sex ed?That mother of hers... Poor Carr- uh, I mean Jill.
>>25933354[x]Open the door to the rightLet's go with the right one. Say to Avril to be ready to leave with you at anytime.
>>25933419Uh oh, we looking at a psycho psychic chick? Neat.
>>25933441Don't bully Jill! That's not nice!
>>25932066>There will also be a pastebin coming later for the second fade-to-black scenethis makes me happy, thanks mh.
>>25933441It's just speculation/a shared trope.But if it is true, that's an extra reason to encourage Jill and be a good influence for her.
>>25933354((Writing now.))>>25933468((The pastebin will be up at some point tonight, eventually. One of the reasons the post times have been slipping a little is that I keep going back over it trying to find a way to write the scene that isn't just incredibly repetitive.))
>>25933494Use more horrific purple prose, i/e/ His purple helmed warrior has thrust into her tender mound of love pudding.
>>25933622thats... i... god thats bad.
>>25933494You go right, and open the door at the end of the short passageway. Inside is a large bedroom, with a circular bed in the middle. Some sort of elaborate symbol has been drawn on the floor all around the bed, with unlit black candles at various points. Cassandra is lying in the centre of the bed, blindfolded and gagged but otherwise naked. When she hears the door open, she shuffles round on the bed a little until her feet are pointing towards the doorway, and then slowly lifts her legs up into the air, before bending them towards her and putting her feet behind her head. Then she lies there, silent and waiting.There doesn't appear to be anyone else in the room right now. There are two doors on the far walls, but the symbol covers most of the floor, so you'll probably have to walk on it at some point to get to them.What do you want to do?
>>25933657Point out the symbols to Avril, then point to the doors on the far walls. If she okays it, close the door behind us and go as quietly as possible over to them, avoiding the symbols as much as possible. Ignore Cassandra and hopefully let her think we left the room.
>>25933657Can we...I dunno, scuff or scratch the mark?Make it imperfect?Because I've seen supernatural- that's the BEST way to ruin a trap but still look like it's sprung.I mean, we ask Avril whether she thinks it would work, but that's my input.Gives us a nice "nofuckyou" moment-like the Morinth Mission in Mass Effect 2.Which, by the way, this is reminding me of way too much for things to end well.
>>25933657GET. THE. FUCK. OUT. OF. THIS. PARTY.NOW.
>>25933657i am so afraid to do anything, it seems thing are out of our hands to some extend now.find something (even fingernails might work) and *quitely* break the symbols drawn on the floor.nothing too big, do it so noone will notice unless they specifically look for it.cass probably thinks we're someone else, surprising her might get us some info. ask "who is it that you are waiting in that state?"
>>25933718>>25933755GUYS GUYS! YOU ARE ALL FORGETTING ABOUT THE VISIONS. IN ONE AVRIL WAS ON THOSE BEDS, ON ANOTHER IT WAS US. LET'S GET OUT WHILE WE STILL CAN.
>>25933792Seconded. time to nope the fuck out of here, but scuff the runes first incase were trapped anyway
>>25933755>>25933792i suggested against coming to party about twenty times, but it was decided we should come; might as well try to get something out of it.or get fucked trying
>>25933814Spoiler for metagaming.Everytime we have sex with someone we'll get addicted to having sex with that person. Let's not get addicted to Cassandra or Isabella because this wouldn't end well.
>>25933657I just joined, and I'm surprised no one suggested we laugh like crazy. Because she looks so serious on her magic circle.
>>25933835we will not want to do something that stupid either way, metagaming or not.also dont forget we also gain from iti should though, making such decisions depending on metagaming is highly likely to bite yo in the ass.
>>25933859i actually like this idea. it fits well with my>surprising heridea quite well.
>>25933859Well... We're an undead boy who just got asked to pay one drop of blood. Why would a magic circle be funny? If anything it's scary as fuck.
>>25933812You quietly point out the symbols on the floor to Avril, and make a scuffing motion with your foot. She nods, then holds up a hand, and gets down on the floor to take a closer look at the symbols. It's hard to make them out clearly without a good light source.As Avril bends over to study the symbols, you can see her dress riding up at the back. You were right, she's not wearing anything underneath it.You're suddenly reminded just how hungry you are. How very, very hungry.((Roll 2d6.))
Rolled 6, 5 = 11>>25933906
Rolled 3, 4 = 7>>25933906
Rolled 5, 3 = 8>>25933906brave sir robin ran away
Rolled 6, 5 = 11>>25933906DAMN YOU YOU SICK BASTARD
Good enough to fuck her brain?
>>25933906I told you guys! We need to get out now or we are going to fuck Avril there and they will get her or something even worse.
>>25933915Good one anon. It would have been unfortunate to get to such a vital moment and then distract her with feeling up her dress.
>>25933936I think we are trying to hold back.
>>25933915this is as close to a success as we're getting.come on, will save!We can't give in when there's spooky magic going on!
>>25933947Well, fucking her without being disturbed, so as to sate ourselves, then dealing with the whole Isabella thing would be good.
>>25933915No. No, this isn't the time, this really isn't the time. You damp your hunger down. It's there, under the surface, though. That's going to be distracting.Avril carefully points out a few individual parts of the symbol, and you scuff them out with your shoe. Nothing seems to happen right away, but Avril nods, and points to the far doors. One of the doors is larger and more ornate than the other.Cassandra is trying to moan something through her gag, but you can't make it out.Try the larger door.Try the smaller door.Go and find out what Cassandra wants.
>>25933972Are you fucking serious? There is some kind of magic ritual sex going on with a naked woman on a bed and you want to have sex with your fae there? Seriously?
>>25933989Remove gag, take smaller door she might be an unwilling sacrifice? of sorts
>>25933989try the smaller door.
>>25934009don't remove gag!
>>25933989Turn 360 and get out.
>>25933992Between drinking a vial of poison, not drinking anything and drinking a health potion? I take the latter, yeah.
Rolled 4, 3 = 7>>25933989>[x]Try the smaller door.because why not. let that cassandra bitch as she is.>>25933992lets not. it would be fun though, i have to admit.
>>25933989Try the smaller door.Maybe we will find the person responsible for putting down the symbol behind there
>>25934045forgive me, but what kind of skills do we have, any spells?
>>25933989[ x ] Try the smaller door.Don't remove the gag, all she'll say is gtfo or shout for Isabella
>>25934061We seduce pretty well.
>>25933989>[x] Smaller doorNot because we have an issue with size or anything ¬¬
>>25934072Sooooo were a zombie incubus?
>>25934009>unwilling sacrifice...NAAHQUIETLY peak through either the door when we open it-Who knows what's on the other side.
>>25934081Well, yes. No. Kind of.Incubus is an entirely different skill set than what we have, but we're doing our best impression of one, and it's WORKING.
>>25934081I was under that impression.
>been waiting for this all day>finally see it and already 50 posts omittedWelp.Catching up I guessJust saging for lack of contribution, no offense meant.
>>25934131((The quest starts at roughly the same time whenever it's on. Don't worry, we'll be running for quite a while yet.))((Also, next post being written now.))
>>25934081actually its most probably a ghoul
By the way, can we maybe sometimes get pastebins of things that don't happen? Because it looks like we're going to successfully avoid Avril getting gangbanged, but that scene sounded like it could be the hottest one yet.
>>25934106Indeed. Picking up the addictive trait would be totally justified.
>>25934292>it looks like we're going to successfully avoid Avril getting gangbanged>implying
>>25934106Is there some zombie skillset that we're neglecting, then?
>>25934292>our Fae gets NTR'd>hottest one yet...but...why
>>25934156You open the smaller door. On the other side is a large and fairly luxurious bathroom - a few shower stalls, a massive porcelain tub that looks big enough for four or five people, and what is presumably a separate jacuzzi.From the door you came in by, you can hear the sound of loud footsteps coming down the hall.Quickly run through the other doorTry and hide in the bathroomStay and confront whoever this isOther?(( >>25934292 Maybe. Considering that we've had four fade-to-blacks already, and only one and a half pastebins sorted, it might take a while to get round to it.))
>>25934131Actually, saging a quest is good practice in general since only the updates really add content, and it's courteous to those who don't like the front page clogged up.
>>25934292Stop this. I don't want my fae to be gangbanged.
>>25934338Because wanton self-destructive sluttery is my fetish.>>25934360It would be non-canon.
>>25934353>[x]Stay and confront whoever this isstay cool. that our forte.
>>25934353>Try and hide in the bathroom
>>25934353[x]Quickly run through the other doorExploration, ho.
>>25934353[x]Stay and confront.We're not some coward, and we're not here doing something we shouldn't either. We were invited here, after all.On a different note, you really don't need to pastebin every fade to black. It would be cool if you did but your output isn't infinite and there's a lot of things that would be better than "You have lots of sex with Avril again" in more words.
>>25934353Hide with the intention of a confontation if we feel we can take who appears
>>25934448>pastebinI second that. The story is good enough without the smut having to be set into stone..
>>25934353[X]Stay and confront whoever this is
>>25934332Not especially- we appear to be using the Ghoul skills and template, as far as most of us can see, but we're a bit skewed- our hunger is for control, which we immediately used to secure a sub for ourselves, and we seem to be able to turn people on easily (Though this may just be a MH trait in general). It's the way we're using our skills that makes us a pseudo-incubus, not the skills themselves.We're playing a ghoul like another template, basically. >>25934371No. We will not be reading that. Not this day.>>25934353Please, no. We don't want Avril NTR'd.Also, can we lock the door we just came through? The door to the room with Cassandra?Because that wil give us more time to inspect the door we haven't looked at yet- we don't just randomly run into a room without looking first, people. Especially not in this house.
>>25934448((As much as I know people enjoyed the first one, you have a point. I want to finish off the one I'm working on now, because I did say at the start of the thread it'd be done, but after that I'll save it for scenes that are particularly special.))
>>25934359The OP of Romantic Comedy Quest (i.e tale/a/non) often used to use the rule that only saged votes are being counted. I consider this one of that poster's smarter decisions since it also makes samefaggotry without proxies all the much harder.
>>25934505> can we lock the door we just came through?No. It's a keyed lock - no bolt to throw or switch to push on either side.
>>25934353((Ok, writing now.))
>>25934505>Please, no. We don't want Avril NTR'd.God dammit, is this a waifufag thing? Are the waifufags here already? We aren't dating Avril at all. We just have sex and our control thing happens.
>>25934646>We just have sex and our control thing happens.Exactly.It's not our way to let go of a plaything.
>>25934646Considering we're talking about a non-canon story that would be entirely optional and presumably would be clearly labeled, I'm gonna say yes. It is very much a waifufag thing.
>>25934669>let go of>shareNot the same thing. Even if we were talking about something other than a side story.
>>25934353Stay and confront. We need to keep their attention on us and away from the markings.
>>25934646>NTR>we controlthats why we dont want it. we would love to have some with her and some others though, we are trying to work jill into it at the moment.
>>25934713>share>ntrgo back to google.
>>25934646No, it's not a waifu thing- she is ours. And her getting gangbanged takes that away. Like, for good, unless Isabella says otherwise. Isabella WANTS Avril. Badly.She's never giving that up.It's a matter of KEEPING CONTROL.Besides, Jill is our waifu. Avril is Chris's Fae. It's as simple as that.
>>25934713Well, >>25934741 said it nicely, I believe.But eh, just saying what would make sense IC.
>>25934741>>25934735>>25934722Pretty sure none of this changes the fact that the scene would be hot. And if it's not canon all that is entirely irrelevant besides context for fapping.
Guys.We should totally get Jill to go down on Avril.
>>25934794It will just take time from the actual quest. Just use your imagination and go fap.
>>25934819 We're trying, man. We set them up for "tutoring", remember? We're doing this.
>>25934819It was already a plan dude. Study sessions, remember?
>>25934819What do you mean by down, like down to her house?
>>25934794that depends on the person. i might like it personally, if it focuses on avril and not on chris' helplesness. some might not like it at all.it all comes down to qm's decision, who doesnt have the time for it at the moment anyawys.
>>25934831B-but I want the QM's description of it...
>>25934834>>25934845Oh? Keep up the good work, then.Also, can we agree to sage any and all meta from now on? Just as a good example.
>>25934859>if it focuses on avrilThat's what I was wanting too. Chris was fucking another girl in the vision anyways.>>25934867Right, sorry.
>>25934851Ueh-hehehe, y-yes, Shirou-kun, that's what I meant. They should visit each other's houses regularily and get to know each other. I hear that Avril has some wet carpets she needs help with cleaning.
>>25934867You could even, not meta, maybe? I don't know, it kind of ruins the fun to have the mechanics exposed in terms of skins and whatnot.
>>25934960Oh, sorry. I meant any meta discussion such talking about pastebins about and the like.
>>25934960Considering the quest was made for the system rather than the other way around, that seems like it would be a bit disingenuous.
Anybody see the sup/tg/ description for this yet? It is labeled like we are playing a game of FATAL
>>25934636You signal to Avril to stay put, close the door to the bathroom and wait. After a moment, Isabella steps into the room, with Apollo following behind her. She smiles to herself and nods when she sees Cassandra still displaying herself on the bed, then spots the two of you. "Avril. Chris. So good of you to join us. Don't worry about Cassandra, she's having a splendid time, aren't you dear?" Cassandra nods enthusiastically. "See? Of course, she could be having an even better time if people were giving her a hand." Isabella walks slowly around the bed, trailing her hand across the sheets. "I know this might look a little strange to you two, but it's just another way of having fun, really. Cassandra here enjoys the giving up of responsibility. Letting someone else have all the power, all the control. There are all sorts of different things that bring people pleasure, bring them joy. And isn't that a good thing? To spread a little more joy in the world, a little more fun? I'm sure neither of you get as much fun as you'd like. We have everything here. Whatever your heart desires.What can I do to bring a little more joy into your lives?She walks up to you, looking right into your eyes. You can feel how easy it would be to get lost in them, to drift away in her eyes."All you have to do is ask. Cassandra? That girl at school, Jill? I can get her for you. I'm happy to reward those who do well for me, as you've done tonight. Just tell me, what do you want?"
>>25935025((Oh joy, that misarchiving troll again. I'll email the archive admin. Not that any of the previous ones have been fixed AFAIK....))
>>25935031"I want you to stop messing with Jill, you conniving bitch"
>>25935025Some fa/tg/uys seem to come from very conservative backgrounds.
>>25935031And how would you do that?i saw the video
>>25935044The admin never seems to care if a troll is at work in mislabeling threads
>>25935031I'm here to say that you need to stop interfering with MY people or else there will consequences for you.And if I ever see you around Jill again, you'll regret it.
>>25935031Can we play dress up with Cassandra? I'd love to step up and deny your fun.
>>25935078>>25935025>ERP, Monsterfuck Quest, Porn, NSFW, Big Sweaty Werewolf Dog Dongs, Necrophilia.That's funny
>>25935031Ask her why she thinks we want anything at all. That may throw her for a loop, but at any rate her response will be interesting.>>25935059>>25935085>losing our cool>insulting our hostHow about no.>>25935044There's no collective game tag, so he might care for this one.
>>25935124>Big Sweaty Werewolf Dog DongsIf you say it several times it becomes a badass beat. Needs some synths and a heavy base and you're good to go.
>>25935124The troll knows what's going on.
>>25935031"i am quite good at getting what i want, i dont need your help to get to anyone. what i ASK from you is that you do not bother what i claim as mine, my sweet avril here and innocent jill being two of such.you think i would want your puppet there? even worse, want you?" a cold laugh to her face.
>>25935025There's a few trolls like that who upload threads they don't like then downvote them, along with any other threads that have been archived and meet their ire.
>>25935170seconded on all parts
>>25935124I fucking wish there was big sweat werewolf dog dongs.
>>25935121I thought we were going to try and enslave her ourself via seducing her with need. Make her view seducing us as a challenge, then slowly drive her desire for us up even further until it is all she can think of and she has forgotten why she wanted us to begin with.
>>25935170Yeah, this seems like a good option at this point.
>>25935170>>25935195I like those two. Combine them if possible.
>>25935170Changing my vote.
>>25935217show her we dont want her. thats our seducing game, and it is what we are best at regardless.losing cool and giving cheap threats are not like us.
>>25935031"And what do you ask in exchange? What's *your* heart's desire, Bella?"Then, if she corrects us, laugh and "Okay, what's your greatest desire, besides not being called Bella?"
>>25935101, then >>25935170 then >>25935217I like that.
>>25935217This man gets it.>>25935031"I'm all too familiar with people wanting to give up control. Hell, a week ago, if you had asked me, I would have probably agreed in an instant."Idly toy with Avril, just a tiny bit- her hair, maybe- just to be a bit symbolic."But not so much anymore. So, while this does look incredibly amusing, and entertaining, I'm going to have to decline for the moment."Get up to leave, and exert a bit of our power on her right as we pass by, with maybe afeather-touch to get things moving."Fantastic party, though. Really."Then we. FUCKING. LEAVE.
>>25935031What I want? But Isabella, I came to find out what it was /you/ wanted. You have all these choices, all these options but somehow there's something just...out of reach. I can help you reach heights you never knew existed.
>>25935170Hopefully you're right. Dropped him an email.
This isn't a suggestion for an action or something to say now butI kind of want Cassandra. She sounds pretty perfect from Isabel's description, we just need to figure out how to break or transfer control.
>>25935175>sage>agrees with "the troll"Hm, I wonder...
>>25935282((Also, writing next post. Will try and work out something approaching a consensus on what to say.))
>>25935286taking cassandra now will only make us isabel's puppet. we can take her on our terms later.i'm all for playing with her a bit though.
>>25935195There's no reason to show our hand like that. and acting all superior doesn't make any friends. Plus we don't know if we really are superior, our hand could be empty for all we know.>>25935268Telling her all about ourselves is a stupid move.
>>25935320>superiorwut? that has nothing to do with superiority.
>>25935290Dude, we're all saging. It's just polite.
>>25935305There is no consensus. It's split between "get mad and tell her about ourself" and "don't do that do anything but that".
>>25935320Then we stick with the basic gist-"Nofuckyou."We CAN do >"while this does look incredibly amusing, and entertaining, I'm going to have to decline for the moment."and on, without revealing too much.
>>25935339>politei disagree, if anyone is bothered by seeing this on first page because of me, they can go try and suck themselves off for all i care. of course feel free to do so if you believe it to be the polite thing.
I understand the people wanting to play with Cassadra but I don't think we should because that's like obeying Bella and we should not do that.
>>25935336That post has us act as though we were in a superior bargaining position. Superior enough to casually reveal things while being very rude.
>>25935339I'm just saging because one anon seems to get off to that. Myself, I don't care, I use catalog ordered by creation date.
>>25935356actually there is. stay cool is obviously what most people voted towards.
>>25935371>The polite thing for me to do is to ignore the preferences of others and tell them to suck themselves off if they don't like my actionsDo you even know what the word "polite" means?
>>25935382that reveals nothing. she already knows we are close to avril and jill. everyone knows cass is her puppet (its obvious in this situation actually)
>>25935393Three votes by my count to "stay cool and ask why she thinks we want anything" and multiple "get mad and be a pompous ass" suggestions, some of which were seconded.
>>25935305"That's a very interesting question, Isabella. What makes you think I want anything at all? Particularly something that I'd need your help to get." You stare right back at her, exercising every bit of control and willpower you have to keep your face perfectly composed.((Roll 2d6.))

>>259354708 is a success.
>>25935482>this is the fourthUh... how many are counted again?
>>25935506but only BARELY.And Isabella isn't dumb.
>>25935506I think it's contested. Wouldn't that mean it depends on what she throws?
>>25935523On the other hand, staying cool is our best stat.
>>25935412yes i do. i dont think it is polite to anyone to keep this thread away from the first page. if they dont like quests and expects us not to keep them bumped, i believe that is unpolite of them, and they can go try and suck themselves off because of it. i believe this was more clear.of course, if anyone thinks saging is polite to others, should feel free to do so.well, this is my last post regarding this discussion, since i believe this should be enough to make myself clear.
>>25935495>calling avril sweet>calling jill innocent>oh my god what have we done?are you an idiot? those things are their basic traits, and anyone in school should be able to label them as such.
>>25935554And with the catalog function they can just filter the threads they don't like out.
>>25935554>someone else is (subjectively, from my point of view) impolite, therefore everything I do is politeNo, you really don't.On the subject of courtesy, you might also see your way clear to capitalizing some letters. The first of each sentence and each instance of the word "I", if you were unclear.
>>25935591>those things are their basic traitsPretty sure Avril's basic traits are "slutty transfer student from Ireland with green hair" and Jills are "nerd with super religious mom".
>>25935523Successes don't work that way in this system.
tonight's player's really make me miss first two threads.
>>25935498You stare Isabella down coldly, ignoring the nagging hunger at the back of your mind telling you to make her kneel and the deep pools of her eyes. "What do *you* want, Isabella? What's your heart's desire? You've got all these choices, all these options - what is it that brings you joy?"Isabella falters for a second. She doesn't say anything. No snappy comeback, no cutting insult. For a moment she's vulnerable.Press the advantage. Make her seem weak in front of her followers.Walk away. Let her know that you saw her weakness, and didn't even need to push at it. It'll give you an emotional hold over her later.
>>25935532Unless our QM is doing something which is probably very complicated, nothing in MH or any Apocalypse World hack is contested, at least in that way. Player rolls, we get our result first, depending on how much we succeed and how the QM is handling NPCs (since the MC never rolls RAW), the other person may need to make their own roll.
>>25935653It seems we've picked up the more usual quest crowd.
>>25935675>[x]Walk away. Let her know that you saw her weakness, and didn't even need to push at it. It'll give you an emotional hold over her later.lets take the win in her lair.
>>25935675>[x]Press the advantage. Make her seem weak in front of her followers.As much as I would normally find this a non-safe option, when you see where the prey is weak, you strike. We turn our back, we show mercy now, we'll have a weak spot, and she'll pick at it. Go for the jugular.
>>25935675>Walk away. Let her know that you saw her weakness, and didn't even need to push at it. It'll give you an emotional hold over her later.
>>25935653I'm here.>>25935675[x] Walk away
>>25935675Wait, are those are only two options? I don't really like either.
>>25935601>The first of each sentence and each instance of the word "I", if you were unclear.Oh this does it. I'm a different anon, and I was neutral on the whole "is it polite to sage" shit, but I've made up my mind now. You don't get to preach courtesy while meta whining about capitals. I choose the side with integrity.
>>25935735i would assume you are free to suggest others. qmm never restirctedus so far.
>>25935653S-sorry. I'll try to calm my autism.
>>25935735((Feel free to submit a custom option if you like, but I'm going to have to interpret it as either "apply a Condition" or "take a String on her for later".))
>>25935675>[x]Walk away. Let her know that you saw her weakness, and didn't even need to push at it. It'll give you an emotional hold over her later.>>25935735You can always make your own choice but you'll need people to vote on that.
>>25935743>you don't get to preach courtesy while preaching a specific kind of courtesyI'm also a different anon and I feel that your criteria for picking sides are stupid.
[x]Walk away. Let her know that you saw her weakness, and didn't even need to push at it. It'll give you an emotional hold over her later.Let's bail now that we have the chance.
>>25935763So, [ x ] take her bra?
>>25935763I want to take a string, but literally walking away seems to weird.>>25935795I don't think that's a viable option at this point.
>>25935763Can we stay and still take the String?I mean, Strings are fucking boss, but I personally don't want to stop being aggressive with her, because we haven't /won/ yet, and letting a competing predator walk around is bad enough. Let alone after rubbing our nose in how much we don't give a fuck.
>>25935821((Fair enough. If people want, I can modify that option a little, to something likeBack off a little. Let her know that you saw her weakness, and didn't even need to push at it. It'll give you an emotional hold over her later.Do people prefer that option?))
>>25935795we might always try, but i would vote agianst it. what if she doesnt have any? that would lose us the moment of adventage.
>>25935863((Also, time extended to take account of the new voting option.))
>>25935858We have won though. We know it, and she knows it, and that's what matters.
>>25935863i never interpreted>walk awayas run out of the without looking back anyways. so, it desnt make much difference for me.
>>25935863Yes, I'll take that option.
>>25935888No. We embarassed her a little. We made her lose her step in front of a couple of people she has under her power. At the end of the day, we hurt her a little, but she still has everything. We supernatural now, we play the long game. We don't win until the other guy BREAKS.
>>25935863Still [x] walk away. The party was shit anyway.
>>25935863I assumed you meant something like that. We back off and get out of the party. No point in staying there now.
>>25935945We should still indulge in some free drinks downstairs.Also I really do want to fuck Cassandra even though I know this is the wrong time for it.
>>25935994>Also I really do want to fuck Cassandra even though I know this is the wrong time for it.no please.
>>25935994Hell no, just walk out
>>25935994We can get out and go have some fun with Avril only. We are hungry for her anyway.
>>25935994Some other time for sure. Maybe we get a hold of her at school or something.
>>25936034>>25936046Ditching the party now would be fleeing.
I'll paranoia for a bit now. The two occurences of blood are Jill and someone who wants ours. >Jill is a vampire that want to get our blood.
>>25935994>>25936055>ignoring that fucking her makes us ISabella's servant anywayThat was the entire set up for this, you guys.We can't fuck cassandra. we can't fuck isabella, either- not yet. Not until she's as good as ours, and make sure her control won't work on us.Then we can fuck the redhead and the blonde.
>>25936078Of course not. Just say you are bored and go have fun with Avril.
>>25936121What color is Jill's hair again?We can square this bitch. Or get the five-pointed star solution.
Well, I should have been in bed an hour ago.>>25936121It has to be later, but I agree with the people that want to take her. Don't really care about Isabelle, though.
>>25936148I think it's:Jill: black hairMasamune: black hair (probably fake)Avril: GreenCassandra: RedIsabella: Blonde
>>25936185Yeah, Square time. The Hat+1 Trick.
>>25936299Four colors. Square. I mean, unless it's the Rhombus of Success, or something.
>>25936310wait avril has green haid and you all think masamunes is fake???
>>25936367Not that Anon, but both of those statements are true.
>>25936367Canon: plastic, like a wig.
>>25936367yes. it wasnt masamune, was it? what was it again?
>>25936414oh right, thanks anon.
>>25936367Avril is a fae from Ireland. Her hair is most likely natural green.
>>25936437Considering her pubes are Green, it's either natural, or she takes dying WAY too seriously.
>>25936437>>25936464She implied it was dyed, or at least that she chose for it to be green, when we first confronted her about being fae.
>>25936150You lean back a little. "I'll let you think about that one. In the meantime, this has been a great party, very entertaining, but I think it's really time for us to go. I'll see you at school."Apollo looks slightly dumbfounded. You can't make out Cassandra's expression behind the blindfold, but her legs stay where they are. Isabella still looks shocked, but it quickly turns into a smile. "Yeah, I'll see you around, Chris. And you too, Avril. You can't hold out forever."You walk out of the house, Avril following behind you, and down the long drive. A guy you don't recognise is standing and watching the gate, though it doesn't look like he has much to do at this point. Avril laughs. "Well, that wasn't quite what we planned, but I think it worked out pretty well in the end. The look on her face was just brilliant. We've challenged her now, though. She's not going to just back down and submit to you. Be careful, sir."Is there anything else you want to do tonight, or on Friday? Most of the weekend will probably be taken up with preparations for Jill's birthday party on Monday. Tomorrow you have English Literature, more Physics, a free study period just before lunch (which you usually spend in the library) and Chemistry last thing on Friday afternoon.
>>25936464I bet if we looked closely, her eyebrows and lashes would also be green, if it were natural.
>>25936148>>25936185((Also, I believe I mentioned it previously, but Jill's hair is a light brown colour.))
>>25936526>She's not going to just back down and submit to you.I told you dog. I told you.We need to spend that Library time figuring out some of what the fuck is going on, supernaturally speaking. Tonight though, we should Eat.
>>25936526like a bawws, ummm i mean head home. perhaps enjoy avrils compant on the way. we do have an urge to sate thanks to her
>>25936526We go to the park, "eat" and then we go to the door of Avril's house.I'm too paranoid at this point to leave her alone just after challenging Isabella.
>>25936526TONIGHT WE SHALL DINE on avril
>>25936568So it is the five-color-points solution. Now we just need to find a girl with white hair or something else, and I need to think up a cool name to do with Hexagons. Because Monsterhearts. Hexes. It's like PB&J
>>25936526We should be starving, better Eat Avril somewhere private.
>>25936526Do we have a computer?Or is there a computer at the library or at school somewhere?If so, we research. We learn as much about supernatural compulsion, control, etc. as possible.We also might want to experiment on random people, see what we can and can't get them to do, based on our influence alone. So far we've known the people we're ordering on a more personal level, which makes it easier for us to order them around.Just a suggestion, either one.
>>25936526We should talk to Jill about the blood, explain what really happened. We can use Friday for that, to get it out of the way before her birthday party.Tonight, we should check with Avril if there's anything we need to do or be aware of regarding Isabella. We want to be ready for whatever she can do asap.We should socialise more with Masami, too: we haven't talked to her much, or even introduced her to Avril, so we should do some bonding before the party, perhaps over preparations. See if we can find out a bit more about her too.Jill being top priority.
>>25936526>>25936615also, tomorrow spend the break time avril, jill and misami. talk about jill's party and other stuff, just have a fun meal.during library time, search supernatural beings. anything we can learn.
>>25936573>>25936614I'll throw my support behind these.We might also want to inquire as to whether or not Avril's family knows about us or our...relationship.If she gets in trouble or something, we're out of a plaything, and an ally.
>>25936526Aside from Avril? Talk to Masami a bit more, get her to open up. For Jill talk to her about what happened and maybe ask her if she wasn't let to take the health lessons.
>>25936526((Okay, writing now.))
>>25936747You're still really hungry. The park seems like a good stopping point for a nice green snack, and Avril is very happy to oblige. Once you're done you head to the library. You ask Avril if she can suggest anything that might help you learn more about Isabella, or about supernatural compulsion in general. She roots around in the historical section for a while, still extremely distracting in that dress even now that you're more sated, and comes up with a book on cults and brainwashing.It's fairly interesting reading - sex is apparently a common tool to indoctrinate new members into a cult, making them feel loved and happy and reinforcing their association of the cult with good things - but it doesn't deal much with supernatural influences like Isabella's. Still, it might come in handy at some point. The next day you head off to school, ready to have a talk with Jill about what actually happened to her on Wednesday and try and reassure her that it's nothing to do with sin.Unfortunately, Jill doesn't seem to be at school today. One of her classmates says her mother called in to say she was sick.English Literature is your first class of the day. As soon as the class breaks up into study groups to dissect "Lord of the Flies" even further, you make a beeline for Masami.Do you have anything specific you want to talk about with her?
soo does anyone have a copy of the pdf?
>>25937167ask her how she likes it here? get her to talk, have a warm chat. talk to her about ourself and our family(usual stuff). then tell her "tell me a bit about yourself and your family" with our convincing power.
>>25937167"You know what you are Masami? You're a little koala bear giving handsies out behind the Rite Aid for bottles of Nyquil. Me? I'm a fucking Siberian Tiger going to the prom with a god damn F-16 jet fighter. And while you have your hands full of shame and cold medication, I'm going to fuck that air superiority bitch until she poops out a striped Cessna. So, I ask you Masami- do you want to ride on my go cart? Or do you just want to suck on shitty half melted brown otter pops for the rest of your life?"
>>25937167We should get Avril or Masumi to phone Jill's house later.Ask Masumi about her life and family back in Japan, and how different she's finding England. Let's see how familiar she is with society and how she's settling in.Ask about interests, too, academic and otherwise.
>>25937167>mother called in to say she was sick...Well, this isn't good.Start off with something like "hey, remember me? I was hoping we could work together again."I'll leave actual questioning or discussions to other anons.
Uhh ask her about the amulet/talisman?
>>25937167try to avoid talking about her hair, but failing
>>25937277this is a joke post, right? But I laughed hard.
>>25937277Somebody, hold on to this until it's actually appropriate.I don't care how much it doesn't fit our chill posh demeanor, a use will be found for this quote. Someday.
>>25937277Dude we turned down getting drugs from our dealer friend. who i suspect is of the infernal skin from core
>>25937372>>25937334>>25937311NO ONE ASKS A TRAIN WHERE IT GETS ITS TRACKS, THEY JUST GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY.
>>25937372why... just dont metagame please, it is unpleasent for alot of people and doesnt help anyone.
>>25937433i think we had legitimate reason to expect some sort of infernal involvment with him
>>25937433Not so much the first part, because of the second part. The metagaming is useless to people who don't have the Monsterhearts game to read, so most of us who do keep it to Spoilers and a little back-and-forth. It adds an extra layer if you know what's going on to the enjoyment, but takes away nothing for the people have no idea what's going on. You don't like it, don't read spoilers.>>25937478The "interested party" wanting our blood, and Avril said he (metaphorically?) reeked of corruption. Also, he wanted our blood. It was super-shady.
>>25937309"Whatever you do, don't mention the hair!""Hey Masami, nice weather we're having! You can feel the heat in the air. I mean, hair! No, air!""So, um, Jill's party. I trust you'll be hair? There! I trust you'll be there!"
>>25937410"Hi Masami, do you remember me? Chris. I was hoping we could work together.""Y-yes, I remember. Of course." You work through the book a little - she seems to read English pretty much flawlessly.You try to work in a few questions about Masami's life and family in Japan as you talk. Her answers are fairly brief - she had quite a large family. They were all always very nice and friendly, but she needed a change. England is lovely - the people are still a little intimidating, but it's nice to start making friends. She'll definitely be coming to Jill's party on Monday. She still seems a little nervous around you, and she's still playing with that pendant every so often, so you ask her about it. As soon as she realises she's toying with it, she lets go and quickly puts her hands down, clutching her book. "It's nothing. Nothing important. Families and their superstitions, you know.""Superstitions? What do you mean?""It's, uh... supposed to protect me. Watch over me when I'm far from home. It's just something that reminds me of home, I guess." She blushes a little. "Chris, this might sound like a strange question, but would you mind if I... held your hand? Just..... just for a moment." She blushes again, a deep red standing out against her pale skin..
>>25937835Sure, why not?
>>25937835its a trap!!! but in all seriousness who not, its a strange thing to ask but i dont see why not
>>25937835"it is not that strange but, why do you want to hoold my hand?"
>>25937894>>25937923>>25937931You guys should just get your gloves on, because a pharmacy parking lot is waiting for you.
>>25937835Guys. We're cold. I mean, I won't bitch and moan over a consensus, but we have a noticeably lower body-temperature. Are we sure we want to do this?
>>25937835Alright but I have to warn you first,I have cold hands.
>>25937835"Th.. thank you." Masami takes your hand cautiously. "Oh! It's cold..." She strokes your hand gently and a little reverently. Her skin is a tiny bit clammy, but very soft. After a little while of this, she suddenly drops your hand, looking down at the table and blushing. "I'm sorry. You must think me so shameless, holding hands with a boy I've only just met... it was nice of you, though." She picks up her book and starts reading intently, still blushing a deep red.You have a free study period before lunch, an hour and a half which you're supposed to be spending doing independent research, catching up on homework, or taking part in optional sports or music sessions. You usually spent it in the library reading. That was before the events of last Sunday, though.Go and find Avril in the break between classes, convince her to skip class, and have some fun.Sneak out into town and see if you can do some shopping.Go to the school library and see if there's anything on the supernatural.
>>25938123>[x]Go to the school library and see if there's anything on the supernatural.we will have avril tonight.
>>25938123>[X]Sneak out into town and see if you can do some shopping.
>>25938123>>25938123TO THE LIBRARY!!! we need to learn more about our situation
>>25938123[x]libraryJapanese spirits that are tied to the moon.
>>25938123>[X]Sneak out into town and see if you can do some shopping.I don't know, but I'm cared to leave her alone so we should take her along.
>>25938123>Go to the school library and see if there's anything on the supernatural.
>>25938123Having fun isn't hard, when you've got a library card
>>25938123>>25938160same annon here.we should especially research about the symbol on masami's pendant. see if we find anything that matches what we know of her.(japanese/asian, shy, weird hair)also search more about those *cults* we found last time if we have time.
>>25938392You flick through the books in the library. There's a surprising variety of unusual books here. You wouldn't expect "Blood Rites and Sacrifices" to be found in a school library, for instance. You pull out a couple of books on cults and one on Japanese spirits, and set to work.((Roll 2d6.))
Rolled 5, 4 = 9>>25938490
Rolled 6, 5 = 11>>25938490If only we had the Chosen move with the library.
Rolled 4, 6 = 10>>25938490
nice rolls, we are gonna get some nice knowledge out of this research
>>25938490Okay we need to borrow blood rites and sacrifices for reasons.
>>25938514we don't need the chosen move with the library- you just found what we're looking for.
>>25938490>>25938514There's a massive variety of Japanese spirits to look through. They seem to have spirits, ghosts or monsters for just about every occasion. You do have one fairly substantial breakthrough, though. You find the symbol that's on Masami's pendant. It's not a protective symbol. It's associated with certain obscure cults in remote island or coastal regions. That's all the book says - it's just given as an example of the sort of thing cults use as an identifying symbol - but it's a lot more than you knew an hour and a half ago.You grab Avril for a bit of lunch and a bit of feeding outside. She doesn't know where Jill is either, but reminds you that she's supposed to be meeting Jill for some tutoring this evening - hopefully she can talk to Jill then.The weekend is quickly upon you. What sort of preparations do you want to make for Jill's birthday party?
Damnit! I can't believe I totally missed the party. I had a step by step plan to handle Isabella too.I'll adapt it to a later event.
>>25938648lets check the thread where we talked about jill's party ? was it second or third?
>>25938648>>25938772we told her we'll hold something fun and simple at our place. masami and avril will be joining us.we have to find a present for her. lets go out with avril on saturday to look for a present, and arrange the cake to be delivered on monday. of course we get the snacks and drinks (no alcohol) ready too.we'll also be spending some nice time with avril. i'd like to ask masami to come too, but we dont have her phone do we?
>>25938961((You have Geography with Masami on Mondays, so you can give her directions and/or get her phone number then.))
>>25938648((I am certain I had players at some point.Well, writing now.))
>>25939037we already invited her to party, i meant invite her to come to town with us.
>>25939116there's no real danger or wow here- we all pretty much know what we agree on.Don't worry; we'll be panicking again soon enough, I wager.
>>25939116You sort out a nice cake and a variety of snacks for Monday, and tell your parents about the planned party. Your mother is happy to hear that you're having some friends over, and has no problem staying out of the way of the party. She offers to sort out some home-made cupcakes as well.With the food sorted, you head out on Saturday to shop for a present for Jill. You're not sure what she'd like - there's always the option of getting her a book, but that seems a little dull for her first actual birthday party. You text Avril to see if she has any ideas on what to get Jill, and ask her if she'd like to come shopping with you. You don't get a reply.You have a couple of thoughts of your own. Jill doesn't have much in the way of fancy clothing, so you could get her a nice dress. You could try and get her a prepaid phone she could use to keep in touch with you. Or you could get her something by one of her favourite authors.A dress sounds like a good plan. Her mother can't possibly object if you keep it nice and plain.A phone would need to be hidden from her mother, but it's the best choice to start getting her freedomA book is the safest choice, something she can show her mother without too much worry. You can work on Jill's freedom in other ways.Other
>>25939236>>25939116What this guy said. It was much the same at the start.
>>25939277A book. Preferably an assortment including some book or another intended to help with generally the same thing as sex ed,
>>25939277Dress and phone are bad ideas-The dress because MUH PURITANISM, the phone for obvious reasons.However, I can see the phone coming in handy in the future, so either the phone or the books...Can we hide the phone IN a book?
>>25939324I say muh puritanism because her mother CAN object- who the hell's buying her kid clothes? Do they WANT her kid to wear those clothes?and the train of thought continues.This is just me assuming, though my vote for the book or the phone still stands.
>>25939314meant to include that we smuggle the sex ed book in. maybe get a hardback and exchange covers with a bible or some such?
>>25939277[x] Book Her mother is already on high alert at the moment, wait for things to die down a bit before we slip her the phone
>>25939277lets just get an ordinary book... least likely to cause uproar. but with puritan parents anything could be heretical
>>25939324>>25939314>Can we hide the phone IN a book?we could combine these two. gets her a phone (risky but we need to take some risks to progress with her) and helps solve some of her problems
>>25939324book on religious skepticism with a hidden compartment in the cover for a smartphone?
>>25939277Get her an inoffensive book, offer her help getting a phone for emergencies.
>>25939277((Okay, writing now.))
also if we do get her a book, tell her to keep it off and hidden in her room, and keep it on vibrate when its on. if she ever wants to, she can text or call us for any reason.that should make her feel a bit more secure about keeping something hidden from her mother, cause i'm sure the idea will terrify her at first.also makes it really hard for her mother to learn about the phone.
>>25939550You pick up a cheap pre-paid phone and look through the bookshops for something Jill would appreciate, that's not got an overtly "Satanic" cover (where "Satanic" covers dragons, wizards, snakes, half-naked barbarians, women in skimpy clothing and many of the other standard cliches of fantasy art). You briefly ponder getting something thick enough that you could cut a compartment into it and hide a phone inside, but Jill would never forgive you for cutting up a book like that. Eventually you settle on something with a fairly simple, abstract cover. Her mother wouldn't bother to read through the entire book to determine if it's sinful.Hmmm. Avril really should have texted you back by now.You keep looking through the bookshops for a bit longer, picking out one or two more books for Jill and a few things for yourself. After a little while you get a text. Huh, it's from Jason. You didn't know he still had your number."Meet me in the park in half an hour. Come alone."This is blatantly a trap. Don't go.This is blatantly a trap. Go anyway. He needs to learn not to try and pull this sort of thing on you.It might not be a trap, you never know. He might just want to talk.Other
>>25939753ohh hell... what is it now...
>>25939753>[C]This is blatantly a trap. Go anyway. He needs to learn not to try and pull this sort of thing on you.
>>25939753((Also, we're past the autosage limit and it's 1:30am where I am, so the next story post will be the last one for tonight. I'll stick around as long as I can to answer questions, like before.))
>>25939753aaaaand here comes the panicking.We go. It's a trap, but we go.A shame we don't have any sort of arms or combat abilities.
>>25939753> Avril really should have texted you back by now. MAXIMUM SHADOWRUNS
>>25939753call him not that he'll answer but ask him why he called you there.>[x]Go
>>25939847It's a trap, but we gotta show these fucks that they can't fuck with us
>>25939753This is blatantly a trap and you haven't heard from Avril. Be prepared to make his brains leak from his ears under your power of persuasion.
>>25939879Also try calling avril, see if she picks up. If she does mention Jason.
This is blatantly a trap. Go anyway. He needs to learn not to try and pull this sort of thing on you.Bet this is ebcause of Isabella, and he's with Avril.
>>25939753>This is blatantly a trap. Go anyway. He needs to learn not to try and pull this sort of thing on you.text Avril to see if Jason got her as a hostage
>>25939847Hello fellow Britfag! I too am forgoing sleep for this panic fest thanks to you
>>25939847oh by the way, the decision that was made during last thread that made your evil laughter echo through the neighborhood was talking to jjason, right?
>>25939969((Pooooossibly.))((Writing next post now.))
>>25939753Trap. Text Avril, plan to go.Be prepared to kick the shit out of people. Hey, have we checked how strong we are? Like, are we still as tough as we were when we lived, or what?
>>25940120we should be a bit tougher than an average person but we didnt really worked towards that aspect, so it probably wont be much of a help with jason.we use our brains and sex-appeal.
>>25940182I know we didn't improve our Volatile, but I don't think we've ever made a test so see how strong we are, like if it's human, but better than we were, or if it's supernatural. I mean, if we can like, bend bars and lift gates, it could come in handy now.
>>25940233We didn't have to roll percentile for our Strength, so we're probably not too good at that.
>>25940258we should probably be hoping we're bulletproof too
You text Avril again. Then you call her. She doesn't pick up.Now you're angry. Jason's taken control of this situation from you. He's probably taken Avril from you. You're not going to let this pass.You dump the presents at home and stalk off to the park to confront Jason. You're rolling over in your head all the things you're going to do to him when you get your hands on him.You walk into the park and take a look around. It's fairly empty. There's a large open grassy area where someone's walking their dog in the distance. There's the bench that you and Jill had pizza on nearly a week ago. And over the other side of the park is a large stand of trees. You don't see Jason anywhere, so he's probably in there.You march into the trees, casting your head about. There he is, right in the middle, lazing against a tree. It looks like he's alone too."Jason. What the hell is this about?""Come on, Chris. Can't we have a nice chat? Like old friends?""Where's Avril, Jason?""Ah... yeah, about that." He shrugs apologetically, and you see a couple of large, bulky looking gentlemen step out from behind the trees around you. One of them has Avril, bound and with tape over her mouth. He's holding a knife to her neck."I'm sorry, Chris. I really didn't want this to get all messy. But there are certain... people, certain very important people, to whom I owe some rather worrying debts. And they're cashing them in. So I really do have to insist about that blood, you see."
>>25940303we are undead anyways.
>>25940324We'll level with him. A( he doesn't know who he's fucking with, who /Avril/ is, and who he's pissing off by threatening her.And B( if he doesn't let her go right now, we're gonna tear his head off and use it to play football.We Ghoul. We're good at being terrifying, and following up on it.
>>25940324((Monsterhearts Quest will continue tomorrow, at 18:00-19:00GMT.

Go vote on the rest of the threads, anyway.Questions? Comments? Curses? Fire away.))
>>25940324"You. put her down and let her go. Jason. I will give you my blood , but I expect compensation. A favor owed from you, and a favor owed by each person the blood is given to. Have we an accord?"
>>25940324*poker face cold laughter*"you think you can hurt her, jason? i dont know what you owe to whom but i do know if you hurt her, you are in more trouble than you can imagine, and i'll only be a little part of that. you will not be getting my blood by using her."
>>25940429How long before we Advance again, MH?
I say we try to make an ally of him. Offer him something his debtors can't. We can get through this without blood. And a sneaky guy like him under our control would be useful. Yes I say we seduce him
>>25940324Jason, I'm going to say this slowly so you understand. You, fucked, up. Now think about this, if Avril comes to harm you lose your leverage. You've just proven you can't be trusted. Now there is no possible thing you can tell me that will make me think Avril will get out of this with an injury if I walk away. Simple reason, your life will be over.Have you thought about what will happen if she's harmed? There'll be an inquiry for one, I'm guessing you were sloppy catching her because I'm sorry but Jason you were always sloppy. Now either the police catch you or you do what you've done previously and run off and ask for a favour to make it all go away. THey'll say sure and those debts of your will just keep getting higher.Don't try me Jason, you are not getting my blood unless that man over there helps you get it and then there will be two corpses in this copse and niether of them will be me or mine. Leave Avril and leave here and I won't ruin you further then you've ruined yourself.
>>25940429We really shouldn't have talked to him, I'm guessing?>>25940432I'd like us to go with this next thread.This sounds nice.
>>25940432Supporting this one here.
>>25940486I call this one. We have all the seduction we need, stick to what were good at,blood I a valuable thing to sorcerors
>>25940475((One more good feeding should do it, by my calculations, or a roll for one of your marked stats.))
>>25940513((Well, talking to him provided all sorts of interesting plot and some nice debate and discussion, so I don't think it worked out too badly. From an in-character perspective, yeah, you fucked up a little bit there.))
>>25940486>>25940566Problem. Jason owes supernatural debts. Presumably, even if we sex him (which means we have to keep doing it, BTW) he'll still need to collect, or it's real skin off his nose. We basically have to be a bigger bad than his loan shark (who is a literal shark for all we know), otherwise, he has no incentive to stop.I think a twofold, "Dude, Avril's got scary connections that'll haunt your ass forever and a day" and "RIGHT NOW, I'm going to beat the shit out of you" will probably make him reconsider. I mean, y'all can do the Harry Dresden thing and start racking up the supernatural mortgage from the bad-man bank but I figured we'd exhaust all other options before that.>>25940571Sweet, we will most assuredly be trying to shut someone down soon next time, and that'll be good. We can take that move that let's us un-die repeatedly.
>>25940432thats an awful, AWFUL, idea.
>>25940429I have a question. When Avril said "I'm yours, I.. promise. Even if you're not mine." does that mean that she is now bound by a fae promise to be ours?If yes, we don't need to worry that much about Isabella getting her.
>>25940634"And if you kill her, then what? I walk, and you still don't get what you need. I won't have to kick your spleen through your spine myself, because nothing I can do to you would be worse than what you've got coming from the guys who'll come looking for her."
You have no idea just how badly you screwed up, do you? We used to be friends, so I'll give you some advice. No matter how bad your debt is, enraging Avril's parent's will be much, much worse for you.
>>25940763Not all Fae promises work exactly the same! Some are extremely difficult to break, some just punish you heavily for breaking them. And you're still not sure whether Isabella's magic or Fae magic is stronger. That's not something you've tested out yet.
>>25940429I thikn you should be a bit more explicit when the characters are being lewd with each other. No need for a full scene, but details are welcome. Kinda like how you describe Chris noticing Avril's without paneties and can see her pubes, but instead, when they are being playful with each other.
>>25940810That would be an actual good thing. We could talk to Isabella and say that we want to do a little game with her. Then we choose some random girl/boy, make Avril get him/her to promise to be hers, we try to take him/her away from her and Isabella tries the same.That way we can know which one of us is the strongest.
>>25940812((What sort of details would you like to see more of? I mean, I really don't want this to turn into BFQ v2.0, but I can probably expand around the fade-to-black portions a bit.))
>>25940912Do you have the pdf for the system? Could you upload it somewhere?
>>25940912not that anon but..things like chris feeling avril's piercings through shirts. nice, erotic details. though, to give you credit, we havent been in much of an erotic situation with anyone besides avril yet. but there would've been some details at party, about cass and other guests for example.
>>25940912Different anon, but what I'd like is little sexy hints, like describing how we can see her lack of panties, how skintight her dress is, how a characters breasts look through her clothing, little bits of sexual contact, like brushing someone's thighs or breasts or someone briefly touching us.I liked the way the sex was implied with Jason at the party: he has a girl between his legs one sentence, he's zipping up the next. Nothing explicit, but enough to point the reader's imagination.
>>25940959((You can get the Skins (the playbooks) for free at buriedwithoutceremony.com. The main rulebook is $10 for a 160-page PDF. And it's actually worth it, too.>>25940965>>25941015This sort of thing I can absolutely do - like you noticed, I've been working it into the story here and there, but it wouldn't be a problem to amp it up a little bit.))
>>25940965This anon knows what I mean.Also, the FtB feel kinda...abrupt. The characters don't even begin to do anything, and there's a skip. i'm probably nitpicking now, but it's bothered me.There is no need for pastebins of random FtB, but people already told you this. And btw, if it's something really important, like, Chris domming Isabella, in my opinion, a good portion of that should go int he thread, isntead of leaving it all to the FtB. For plot reasons.
>>25941091I'll probably buy it since I liked it but I won't have the cash until next month and I wanted to start playing it now.
>>25941159piracy is always an option
>>25941201>>25941159Cough. >>25941032You guys know /tg/ does .pdf uploads, right?If you like the product, get the money to the people who make it when you can.
>>25941159Well, >>25941032 seems to have uploaded the full thing, so there you go>>25941096Yeah, I've been going back and forth a little on how much sexual content I can include without either a) getting the thread deleted (as happened with the original attempt at a Monsterhearts quest) or b) becoming the next Blatant Fetish Quest. Neither of which is really a good outcome in my eyes.I'll push things a little more in the next few threads, and keep my eye on it to make sure it's not getting out of control.
>>25940718why? we have a Fae witness which makes the bargain fully binding. this gives us a large number of favors with no limitations. we could, say, force Jason to swear eternal unquestioning loyalty to us, and he has to obey
Hey MC, after the quest is finished or after we've already penetrated most of the secrecy, would you be willing to share the custom skin you're using for one of the NPCs? I'd be pretty interested in seeing it.
>>25941463because giving our blood is always an awful, AWFUL idea.also it is possible that we can save avril by keeping calm and intimidating jason, as many anons suggested.
>>25941463Eh, I mean, that's a supernatural power Avril has. Our promises (unless they're WITH Avril) don't hold as much weight. No, Jason also deals in debts, so it may be possible for him to bargain, ye-olde schoole but it wouldn't have as much force. Also, dude, no, blood is bad. Especially given how much Avril said Jason was marked by black mojo.
>>25941530Possibly. I'd have to ask the person who made it whether they'd be alright with their work going out without their name on it.
>>25941091>like you noticed, I've been working it into the story here and there, but it wouldn't be a problem to amp it up a little bit.Excellent! A little amping up would be lovely.You could also use it in the lead up to fade-to-blacks. Like instead of just mentioning that we have sex with Avril, talk about pushing her against a tree and lifting her dress, and cut off there. That way there's more hints at sex than just saying it happens, and there's a scene that a pastebin can continue from directly if you do write one.>>25941269Little details are totally awesome and shouldn't make things NSFW. When we comforted Jill last session, for example, you could have described her panties and bra instead of just saying she was in her underwear.>I'll push things a little more in the next few threads, and keep my eye on it to make sure it's not getting out of control.Thanks MH!
>>25940489I vote this.enough with the games. Its time to get our hands dirty if we want to make some waves around here. We may not even have to, but reputation enough can carry us. We are probably the newest member of the monster squad. Nobody has any idea what we areprobably.
