Hmm, apologies if I'm a touch tardy. My employment asks so much of me after all..Well, let us begin our frivolous little tale once again, no need to dally after all...So far you've had an amazing victory! The question however is, just how far will it.. continue?The naughty little demon, Faefnir..Forged out of a once-baker's soul named Claire... A pitiful woman that had been strangled to death by a beggar for her beloved baked goods..And hence, called back by her since child-hood friend, Jacob, that had always looked upon Claire fondly, oh so fondly..Once granted a body, she killed the man so that they could forever be together, as a delightfully monstrous creation!First, Faefnir's stats and abilities!>Updates pending for new unlockable abilities...>http://pastebin.com/CuLptHELHis naughty family...>Update pending for Andrea..>http://pastebin.com/1XTzrHiRAnd the Scoundrel's tale so far!>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Akuma%20Quest
You bring a clawed gauntlet to your head, letting out pure heat as your new upgrades take hold, a maw opening up upon your palm before closing right after and a chain-saw ripping across an empty space in your chassis before disappearing as well.You muse at the sensation before you realize that this is all so very.. different... and the one you speared away.. it was familiar... so familiar...You draw a circle with your hand and like a paintbrush, a small patch of land is made/ You imagine that it floats, and so it does, bringing you right up to the surfac, you stand upon the land and yank at the Asher Ribbons that're still stuck to the two wounded Akuma, bringing up the two aquatics and throwing them on land where they glop for a moment before panting out," Beg mercy on us! Please, don't kill us!"The rest of the family stands upon the shoreline, flabberghasted at your new form. You tilt your head to the side, blue eyes gleaming," What's the matter? It is I, Faefnir."Hear my voice and recognize it. By chance, may I know weherever is my darling Madeleine? She was not well off last I saw her..."Schwere is the first one to call you from the shore, Faefnir! behind you!"It's with a turn, you see the immaculate female slug you across the helm, sending you to the egde of your small plot of land, ringing your bellYou rise up however, undaunted.You see that the female form before you wears a white coat with a golden fur trim around the back of the neck, has a halo with a cross dipping down from the center, and chrome-porcelain skin, along with glowing green eyes, and a frown that seems to be in pain, barely containing it."I... was worried.. I needed power... because of my damage.. To save you.. The damn Noah... Betrayed us.. Faefnir.." She speajs slowly and deliberately, in a voice all too familiar, yet different."Who... Are you?" You ask, aloud.The creature before you gives a pained smile,"Ariel. My name is Ariel, though you can still call me Madeleine.
You notice that the immaculate... Akuma is standing atop the water, not sinking into it... the stench of innocence upon her again... you can feel it radiating off of her."What... did you.."She places a hand against your cheek, or rather, your helm. You feel a strange tingling sensation from her touch, much like the power of innocence.."I found it again.. my innocence..It's been a while... hasn't it... Mr. Baker?"Your oil goes cold," Maddie... you..."She place a hand over her chest, opening up the coat, and exposing the glowing green object embedded in her chest."My system reports that I'm Level Ex... I.. don't quite know what that means but... I forgive you.. and.. I still I still love our family.." She looks over to the akuma that stand on the lakeside, awaiting your further instruction, and glancing at the tranced out Arthur warily..."Even... if I can't touch them like this... even if this core of mine hurts right now..."You looks to you, smiling more like she usually does," I told you not to trust the Noah, didn't I?"
I wonder what would upgrading presence do. Why do I have the feeling it will do more than allow us to direct level 4 akumas? It will maybe make the Noah sense our *very special* presence. That could be bad for us. What should we focus on upgrading next? Perhaps devil luck or agility?
>>26399408Stats are locked for now, Level three is your current hard cap stat-wise. To update those abilities, you'll need to find a way to attain Level 4, or whatever your version of it is, being a L3V3L W....
>>26399298"I suppose you did my dear, I suppose you did. We will have plenty of time to discuss this, and all the other events of today, later. For now we ought to be off, I do not wish to be around here when the Cardinal awakens."Get people moving, take Jacqueline and Lisa with us, we'll have questions for them. Loot the Lord's house on the way, have someone find Andrea for us, and leave a swath of destruction through the city before making it to the cart with a pile of goods, valuables, and so on.
>>26399298"Yes, you were right. I'm sorry. I was blinded by my own hopes. I had hoped that the Noah would take care of us if we were useful to them. Be it as it may, we have to leave now. Let's get all of the family together, and pickup Andrea on the way out. I don't think we can call on the Duke for more Akuma."We have to treat our wounded and leave. Casualties will affect our group harder now we can't get any new baby Akuma.
You look to the shoreline, as you stand beside Madeleine upon your little island.. You see your family, collectively staring at you... Schwere nursing a broken orb from her outrageous attempt to pick you up out of the water, Armbrust has arrived and stands dutifully in his monstrous knight form, the children are contorting and stretching about as though they're evolving.. nay.. indeed they are evolving.. it would only make sense after this slaughter..Edward still seems to be hurt as he lays low, looking pitiful.. or perhaps that's just him?Speaking of pity.. You see that Morgan and Maashiima are nowhere to be seen, and Arthur stands, staring ahead at you as though in a daze, his sword still in his hand and peeling back the earth slowly as though it were an apple.Madeleine reaches for you, and you reflexively tense, on guard. She withdraws her hand, eyes melancholy, yet a beauty beyond you'd have words to describe."I told you not to trust the Noah.. they left us.. they left us with Ser Arthur.. From what I gather, he's under a spe-""We should kill him then, while we have the chance." Your voice whispers out through your helm as almost a growl. You touch your face now.. How you've changed...Madeleine frowns, as her face contorts in a mix of pain and fear," I... I don't think that we should He's grievously wounded and still standing.."Your sense comes to you now, in part, as you look over to the man, appearing so... helpless."If the Noah could have finished them, they would have? Yes? That's what you're implying, yet you tell me not to trust them.. You are interesting Madeleine, Ariel... Whoever you are now.. You are still apart of this family if you wish to be.." You dispell your literal cloak of shadows, preparing for what's next... You'll have to interrogate Jacqueline and Lisa of course...> You have control...
>>26399476Get our guys and get out. We need to treat injuries and beside a General is not the best place to conduct an interrogation.
>>26399429By stats, do you mean physical stats or all stats in general?Why do I have the impression we are going to almost one of *them* at level 4?Also, I had a very stupid idea. As we have part of the bonds of Noah inside us and Akumas have show the ability to combine into a more powerful form, could we and the family have a Akuma Megazord form?I am kidding, I am kidding.>>26399476Lets interrogate those two slimy bitches. We could have Schwere and another hurt family member eat them afterward.
>>26399562All the stats in general. So for now, even "Presence" is locked I'll update the stats to inform that...Wouldn't be right to have a lv 3 order around level 4's, now would it?Also, what do you mean by..>Why do I have the impression we are going to almost one of *them* at level 4?
>>26399476there is not much to interrogate. we know everything. and we can't exactly destroy them in hopes that they won't get a chance to tell the duke. the duke already knows.
>>26399613If we become any more humanoid, we are going to look awfully a lot like a Noah.
>>26399476As I said here >>26399435 we should probably bug out about now.We don't know when Arthur is getting up from this little daze of his and I don't think we have anything resembling a good shot at taking him down. We can interrogate Jacqueline and Lisa later, for now get out of here, loot, burn, and pillage on the way, especially the Lord's mansion, there should be some good stuff to steal there. With Arthur like this, the Asher dead, and all the Mages gone there really shouldn't be much in the way of anything in Florin that can fuck with us or our Family so we can play a bit before leaving. >>26399632We don't know which one of the Noah put them up to this, probably the Good Doctor, but confirmation is good, and we can get a full history from them and details on what they've been doing when we weren't around.
>>26399672We have a ???? Form that is as of yet not described, that's probably meant for our Noah form, but that's just a educated guess.>>26399562I doubt they attacked us of their own free will, we can be forgiving should we be able to ensure that they won't turn on us later.
>>26399696why? why do we care what they were doing? why do we care who told them to attack us? to get them to apologize? I'm sorry, but i'm going to have to argue against that. The reason that some of the Noah do not like us is because we force them to lose face constantly with the apologizing. if we continue to force them to do so, it will not be pretty.rather, since we know that the Duke can hear through Jacqueline and Lisa, let's send him a little message, which will follow.
>>26399632>We don't know which one of the Noah put them up to this, probably the Good Doctor, but confirmation is good, and we can get a full history from them and details on what they've been doing when we weren't around.Yeah this. However, I have doubts that the doctor is the one behind that. He don't think he would simply destroy us, as he wanted Morgan to rip us apart to find out what went wrong.
You spread the two implements upon your shoulder and back that have become your wings. You take a moment to regard them with a little interest. They're quaint, or rather, small.. Small and... You turn them on, jets of flame pouring out and giving you instant lift. The emission hits the water, scattering it into a spray and vaporizing it into steam at once. Madeleine shields her face from the intense heat, and you turn it away from her.You raise your voice so that those on the shore can hear you," We leave. Consume the healing bread and prepare to cut a swathe of destruction to our escape point. Find the missing member, Andrea. She appears to have wandered off.Schwere and Madeleine shall accompany me to the Lord's mansion. We'll be taking what we can carry that's of worth."You turn to Lisa and Jacqueline as they leak oil everywhere, staring at you pitifully with no small amount of disdain," You two will leave with us, quietly in your human forms and do or say nothing until I command otherwise."You see their pupils dilate and they rise up slowly, reverting to their respective human forms, in their street garb, and not their nun habit.. A good thing."And no one touch Arthur. He is too dangerous for us to deal with."You take in a deep breath and roar out with a clear measure of malice."Dismissed!">Roll 1d100...>Specify what you seek from the Lord's Mansion...
>>26399773"My Delightful Darling Duke, I do hope you are well. I am happy to report that me and my family are perfectly fine after the whole encounter, and i'm pretty sure you already know that your family is also safe and sound. I am so glad that Maashima had enough confidence in our abilities that he left us to take care of the Asher by ourselves. I am also glad that he saw fit to incapacitate the Cardinal for us, because while I had no doubt we could kill the Asher, a Cardinal is well above our level. and as for these two who so rudely attacked us and stole our kill, I am willing to let them go. I'm sure that their foolish actions were of there own volition." like that, but in a tone that leaves no doubt in their minds that we know what there true intentions were behind there actions. in this way, they can still save face, and we can still give them a small "fuck you"
Rolled 12>>26399885>>Roll 1d100...>>Specify what you seek from the Lord's Mansion...Lets try to find something worthwhile in the treasury.
Rolled 16>>26399885gold, books, jewelry, stuff like that. but nothing with a crest.
Rolled 26>>26399773You're saying that you don't want to know which of the Noah ordered these two to attack us and just leave it as a mystery? Even if we don't use it against them it's good to know.The Noah Family is not a singular body all in harmony with each other, knowing which part of it is doing what is very useful. It being Maashiima doing this is a very different message being sent than Adam personally having them attack us.The person who did this knew very well that Jacqueline and Lisa living through this was unlikely, and had the hope that they may be able to take us out by sacrificing both of them, that's interesting, and we should find out who was behind it so we can adjust our plans accordingly.>>26399885Gold and other transportable wealth. Things like jewelry and the like is also good.Let Schwere raid the library as she wishes. And if there are any nice paintings or other bits of art I'm all for taking them even if we aren't going to sell them off, art is nice.
Rolled 37>>26399938let's try that again
>>26399926>>26399938>>26399941God damn it, /tg/ dice are not on our side today.
Rolled 78>>26399926>>26399938>>26399941>>26399947>>26399954Talk about rotten luck
>>26399941is it really that much of a mystery? I mean, really? it was obviously Maashima.
>>26399973Most likely, but I want confirmation. And they may know more than just that, which is why I'm saying we ask. There's no reason not to confirm any suspicions we have and see if they know anything beyond that.
>>26399926>>26399938>>26399941>>26399947>>26399954Apparently this is either the poorest lord ever... Or the mansion's inexplicably on fire...>>26399965Fun...I'll take this. But an Anon needs to name One.. One relevant thing to the lord. I'll guarantee that they find it.Taking the first thing said that's relevant.. If you don't think you have a nice thing in mind, then don't worry about it..
So, about what Arthur said to Maashima.About the latter being a traitor.And pointing out that none of the people who had fallen from the pier coming back up to the surface.It seems very likely that the Pity of the Noah divulged our plan to the Cardinal and promised to rescue the victims.
>>26400010>On fireIn that case, everything valuable must have been destroyed before we could arrive and put it all out.Also, is our Creation Engine still active?
>>26400049........ I'll allow it.
>>26400010The best oven in England.Lots of money.Heretical texts.A certain murderous crossbow.A puppy.A pile of well known paintings.
>>26400049>>26400067so that we can further summon the dark influence, right?
>>26400010>find his black book, most Lords would have some sort of bank and/or name book of important people and stores of wealth>>26400049>>26400067of course that works too
>>26400067The Earl has one hell of a pokerface. Hard to know if you are surprised, disgusted, amused or frightened.
>>26400093Simply summoning it further would be foolish. We need to find a way to understand it and control it.
>>26400122... you don't know what the Necronomicon is, do you?
>>26400148To be fair, that book is never really clearly defined in any story. From the dunwich horror, it's a repository of forbidden knowledge and magic.
>>26400257it is usually used as a book filled with magic for summoning things no human can control.
>>26400274Fortunatly, we are not exactly human.
>>26400293...You make a good arguement.
>>26400274>>26400293What was up witht hose Frog Things last thread.SO we managed to gank Asher, but in the middle of killing him, bullywugs showed up and started to fight us, too.If I may: WTF? I thought Akuma, Noah and Exorcists were the only supernatural things in this world (The eponymous Devil of Devil's Luck excluded, of course)
>>26400257Huh.It seems like it's something special we can give to Schwere.
>>26400330the frog think was Lisa, the tentacle thing that kill stole the Asher was Jacqueline
>>26400332This seem like a good idea. Well, maybe we should check her willpower before we give her the book.>>26400330The two slimy things that attacked us were the two level 2 akumas from the church.
>>26400330The Frog and the Lion-Fish were Lisa and Jacqui respectively.
>>26400330The frog thing and the squid tentacled Lion-Fish are Jacqueline and Lisa, they're aquatic based Akuma.
>>26400357Willpower could be related to magic. Who knows.
You fly over to the shore and grab Schwere as she floats higher for easy pickup. You latch your claws underneath her arms and angle forward, turning your thrusters on and blasting off across the lake.You see Madeleine below you, running, or rather, skipping across the water, with little effort.. Whatever change happened to her... she just seems so.. unnatural now from your perspective.. She's too beautiful, too clean.. You can't smell any murderous intent off of her.. any Sadism..Schwere calls up to you," She's... changed... hasn't she? She shoved that thing inside of her body as soon as you were pulled under the second time.. I'm surprised she's still functioning..""Indeed.." You say, your humor almost bare.. Or rather, are you worried for her?You arrive at the Lord's mansion, seeing a pair of crimson guards at front, throwing out spell, and imbued arrow at once. You let Schwere go and bank while she forces herself down to dodge the fire. You raise your hand to unleash the ribbons from before, yet find that nothing comes out.~We can loan you no more power or now... sorry.~You take an imbued arrow to the chest, yet it just glances off of your armored chassis.. You let out a mad smile from your helm."You rally with those that would do harm to ny family. For that unforgivable sin, I shall kill you all." You announce to the guards that seem to go white beneath their helms in despair.You raise your palms to the two, ungodly heat distorting the light itself as it picks up to the point of an unnatural glow before jets of pure burning drive through the two humans..Yet you're not quite acquainted with your new power as the heat drives into the mansion and sets it aflame with great speed."Shit.""Let's start looking then?" Schwere calls over to you as she floats on down to the entrance, assuming human form and running in.
>>26400411So Maddie's got her Innocence....I'm guessing we'll get to see what the Hydra was going to do some time.....along with the other Labors....
>>26400411I remember that, when we critted, the "dark thing" tampered with some sort of "ward". Anyone know what that was referring to? Was it somehow related to Maddie's body being able to accept an Innocence into her core?
"I'll slow the spread! Take care not to dally too long my dear Schwere!" You raise a palm and suppress the spread of the already raging flame.You concentrate, yet then realize that Madeleine is nowhere to be seen. Looking back and down, you see her standing upon the waters, staring up at you... Trembling..."Are you well, dear Maddie? Surely you have not come to care for the human wretches... Have you?"She does not respond... You're keeping the flames from spreading...>Spare some time, fly down to see that Maddie is not.. upset.> Ignore her for now, remain focused on the task at hand.> Tell her to go to the others.> (Other)
>>26400496>> Tell her to go to the others.Or rather, politely ask her to help protect the family.
>>26400527agreed, actually, just tell her to go straight to the cart. best she not see the massacre...
>>26400458The armor that the crimson and order wears is warded to prevent the exercise of spells against them... Much in the way that barrier talismans are employed, it's just another application.If the ward were in place, the weakened Maashiima wouldn't have been able to subdue Arthur. If Arthur hadn't been subdued, the family couldn't have aided you in your struggle against the Asher.The "Price"in that was Maddie finding her Innocence that Arthur had been carrying since stopping by Temes...
>>26400496>my dear SchwereOur style of speech seems to have changed; perhaps something inherited from Bondomu?>Spare some timeShe can't exactly approach any of the other family members safely right now, remember? And we should speak to her directly right now.
>>26400496>>Spare some time, fly down to see that Maddie is not.. upset.>> Ignore her for now, remain focused on the task at hand."Ariel, you said you still accepted our family as we accept you still. You know what they would do to us right? What they HAVE done to us. If this is too much to bear for now then please protect the others while I see that Schwere doesn't get into trouble"
>>26400496>[x]Spare some time, fly down to see that Maddie is not.. upset.We do need to talk to her on how she doing.
>>26400586Don't call her Ariel; she's still Maddie to us and she's fine with that identity.
>>26400545She may not be able to hurt human anymore, but she can still help us protect the family.I wonder if she's still has a human form.
>>26400610and she called us Mr. Baker, Ariel is aware now and is part of Maddie somehow. may not be wise to forget that she has changed more ways than physical
>>26400644The best thing we can do right now is to reinforce our Bond with Maddie. Try not to brush her off.
>>26400496[X] Spare some time, fly down to see that Maddie is not.. upset.Try to deal with the flame from where we are, but we may need to talk now."Madeleine darling, are you alright? I know we have a great deal to talk about, it has been quite a day for us all. Will you be able to manage for the time being so we can discuss this when we are less busy?"
>>26400496Can't we smother the flames using our ash?>I have no idea if that works in real life
You break concentration and set yourself lower to hover just before Maddie, as she trembles harder at your visage, standing before you on seemingly tranquil waters, despite the disruption of your jets."Madeleine.. Are you well?"Her eyes look different now.. exhausted, angered... spiteful even.. Her beautiful, immaculate features have contorted with those emotions...She shakes her head slowly," N-no... It's... It's angry... It's very... angry.. Y-you... Fa-Faefnir..." She holds a hand forward as it surges with an incandescent green glow."B-back away... It's... Hurting..." She folds the hand of her extended arm as it crackles with energy, turning a thick violet...Maddie looks down, her eyes hidden from you..."I... I think... I should go... I'll go Faefnir... I'll go ahead.. so I don't have to watch any of this..."You feel a tinge of despair as you see a schism occurring... Yet you shut your eyes at that and turn back to suppress the spread of the fire, moving ash to further smother it... halting the spread to a further degree."Go ahead as you need to.. Watch none of this. I'll be looking forward to seeing you at the wagon Maddie.. Along with everyone else... Please do not disappoint that... desire of mine.." You look back to her, and find that she's already skipping away. across the water.You clench a fist and grit your teeth, amassing a sphere of blue flame and white plasma in a free hand and throwing it down into the water in your rage.Steam and vapor explode out of the lake. As it rains back down, your mood is grim, yet the problem of fire is solved..
"Damn the innocence.. Damn the excorcists... Damn the Doctor... Damn God... Damn it all!" You mix two spheres together and make the lake erupt once more... Your wrath is getting the best of you... You require justice for this... Yet you already let off some steam...Schwere comes out clutching a sparse few valuables and a book seemingly stitched of several different leathers... She seems quite excited about the find... Yet she seems to notice your inherent displeasure, and Madeleine's lack of presence.."Faefnir?" she approaches you along the Lord's pier, drenched with the results of your anger.Looking not at her, nor anywhere directly," pleased? We must leave now.. This place has left a very bad taste in my mouth, and I am keen to see ourselves away....">Roll 1d100...
Did the duke fall asleep again?
>>26401017>>26401032Quite good. Alright then. list any other action you'd like to undertake upon arriving at the escape wagon or beforehand..You may...>Interrogate Lisa/Jaqci>Secure and check up on Fonso..>Ring Alice's Bell...>Depart... In which direction?-West: Fishing Village> Ruinebriar...-East: Small villages... Otherwise unknown territory..South... Ruins of Temes... 25 days till London..North: Unknown.
>>26401112Let's interrogate Lisa/Jaqci. work of some more steam. also, an idea just occured to me. when we unlock our creation Oven, i think we could make our own Akuma.
>>26401112>Interrogate Lisa/JaqciI want to know who ordered them to kill us.>Secure and check up on Fonso..We could then give him to morgan for research purposes.then>Depart... In which direction?Lets go into the great unknown to the east. Small villages go well with cosmic horrors.
>>26401112>Interrogate Lisa/JaqciWe'll dispose of them for the crime of assaulting our family and stealing the Asher kill, but first we'll interrogate them on all they know. I think we should go east or north, so how about north-east.
>>26401169as much as I want to go to London... I have to agree with this. go to the east until we figure everything out.
>>26401112The first thing to do is interrogate Lisa/Jacq, there are some answers I'm looking for and they may know more than just who ordered them against us, they might know something about currently running plans of people, and they might know what's to the North.Then we check up on Fonso, he's a traveler so he may know about stuff to the north, and there's also just checking on how he's doing and thinking about what to do with him and how to investigate what he is.I'm thinking either North or East, I don't like the sound of South, and we came from the West.>>26401169Why would we give Fonso to Morgan? We can investigate the hand ourself, and if we do consider giving him to her we better be getting something big in exchange.>>26401195Interrogation first, if they attacked us only because Maashiima or some other directly ordered them to pretty much commit suicide by Family I wouldn't really consider that a crime of theirs. Of course we may have to kill them if we can't drag them out of the Forest.
>>26401274Stop being so greedy, being on friendly terms with the other Noah is good for us.
>>26401301especially since the Doctor could probably kill us easily.
>>26401274Agreeing with this anon on Fonso. We can still be on good terms with the Noah, but it's about time we built up our own personal reserves. Plus, the narrative hinted that we're capable of unlocking Fonso's power ourselves.
>>26401331The doctor rarely get his hands dirty.Also, should we let the sisters live afterward fellow players? We could feed them to the family, but that would probably make them hostile toward us. I'd say we send them to the other side of britain.
>>26401422make the Noah hostile toward us*
>>26401274Idea, guys. Let's try to convince Fonso to let us travel with his caravan in return for helping him try to understand his arm.
>>26401452you really don't know a lot about Romani, do you?
In regards to Fonso, if everyone forgetting that we ditched the our Rick Asher disguise for Lady Florian? Fonso only knows us as him and Maddie in human form assuming that hasn't changed either
>>26401422I assumed we'd give the sisters the join or die option. Well, I say give them, but I mean put it to a family vote. Lisa and Jackie are following our orders already, so they don't get a vote.
>>26401504He knows we're magical and weird, us showing up with a different face is hardly going to be the biggest shock he's had this week.
>>26401504THAT REMINDS ME. I think we should keep the Lady Florin disguise. not as a public disguise, but as a spooky, creepy ghost disguise.
>>26401536you say that, but Romani are very distrusting. we'd really have to a game our bluff that we're magically the same person
I take two weeks off to move to kentucky and everything goes all bizzare, and we're in danger of losing Madeline to the innocence.Jeebus what.
>>26401574Not really, we just list off the conversations we've had and make some fire in our hand.
>>26401594INNOCENCE CAN'T HAVE OUR GLORIOUS TROPHY GIRL. she's both hot AND she is a trophy because she is the body of a finder, fueled by the soul of her exorcist sister.
>>26401574>>26401614play it off like>used magic to disguise myself before, needed you to trust me so came how i really look
>>26401574This is why I opted for handing him to the Noah. Less of hassle.>>26401594Weren't you surprised when it was revealed that there was a Noah inside us?
You and Schwere fly over Florin, getting the scenic view of people having long fled, the occasional man, woman, and child still alivem though legless... others littered with bolts, cut to ribbons.. clearly the work of your family...It keeps you a warm, tingly feeling..You arrive at the Wagon as it's already begun to set off, likely in preparation for you...You see that Madeleine sits there in her human form, a blindfold over her eyes, and hands over her ears.. Likely so that she hears no evil and sees no evil, you surmise.Edward still seems sick from whatever he had been hit with, Denis salutes as you land and revert to your human form.. Schwere already in hers, as you carried her.."Sir, the prisoners are accounted for. they've followed your orders to the letter and we are ready to set off at any time. We scraped together what supplies we needed to seem human, along with other commodities for comfort. All that observed us doing so have been slaughtered and the area has been clear, courtesy of Kama, Kralle, and Wendel.Your next orders?"You nod to Armbrust, right before looking upon your own garb.. Shameful peasants clothing.. not something that a baker of your esteem should be wearing... yet you'll need to wait on that note once more.. Need to blend in after all.. While looking yourself over," Have you clue what lies for us in the East?""Sir, East lies small villages we have raided in the past.. beyond that, I'm uncertain what lies in that direction.""It should be safer than Florin.. Is the gypsy.. Is Fonso secured?"Denis nods to you," We've kept him tied and restrainedm, even despite his unnatural power, we've kept an eye on him and applied concussive force when necessary to keep him in check.. ""Do well not to damage him further..."You walk around to the rear of the caravan where the two demons sit, glaring at you, saying nothing."You may now tell me who it was that ordered you to attack me as you did.."
Lisa still says nothing, yet Jacqui smiles, stifling a laugh.. or rather, your command stifles her laugh."You grip a sphere of pure, scorching heat, grab Jacqui by the hair, pulling her down and pressing her face close to it as she struggles,"I command you to speak freely. Mind that you stick to the subject.."You feel the eyes of Kama, Schwere, and Denis on you as they gaze on..Jacqui laughs freely now, right until you melt off a chunk of her face, as reparation for her earlier offense/ As she screams, you yell at her," What's funny now?! Do tell!"Lisa stares on at you, still saying nothing as she seems to gaze on in horror at Jacqui's treatment.."You now, speak freely, cover your mouth if you have the urge to. What is going on?" You growl out, your voice low.Lisa brings a hand to her mouth and struggles against your command, rising from the wagon, and standing on the ground as you are with her "sister.""Please, let her go first." The first thing that's out of Lisa's mouth.You bring up Jacqueline by the hair and push her off, so that she falls, sobbing.. You feel a hand on your shoulder and you twist around with your burning power, ready to smite the perpetrator, only to see that it's Denis."Faefnir, calm down.. this is unlike you.. They're both sufficiently... scared at this point.. They can't disobey you without a struggle. Why don't we hear what they have to say?"You take a deep breath, calming yourself.. He's right after all, Madeleine's condition isn't purely their fault.. it's the Noah's fault.. It's the Noah's fault because the Noah ordered them to.. The Noah ordered them.. But.. which?You turn to them, calming yourself visibly," Which one was it? Which one ordered you two to do it?"
>>26401907Enter your bets gentlemen.
>>26401975I'd like to see the bets before I enter the next post.. I'm betting none of you guess correctly...
>>26401975I GOT 10,000 RUPEES ON MAASHIMA
>>26402013I bet it was Alice, who did it for the lulz.
>>26402013Morgan, who felt scorned by us.
>>26402013I'd also like to make a side bet of 2000 Rupee on Morgan
>>26401907100 lucky bucks on morgan
>>26402043Beat me to it. Damn.
>>26402063Or perhaps she tried to finish what the Doctor asked her to do.
>>26402013A Noah we haven't interacted with yet, going for the longshot.
>>26402111That's possible. I think that Wrath is awake right now.
>>26402013My bets are on a unanimous kill order.The noah came to this agreement mostly through maashiima's goading but ulimately it was the duke who made it official that our usefulness had reached its end.
Jacqui laughs at that again, as she lies where she is..Lisa is the one to speak,"I can't answer that.""Why?""Because the Noah didn't order us.""They.. didn't?"Lisa begins to back away, even as Jacqui begins to scramble away the same.."They did not.. We did it because we hate you... We hate you for liberating us.. for the treatment the Noah had begun to give you.. Through our eyes, we had seen you go from good standing to falling from the Grace of the Duke.. You denied their orders.. and after a week of your stay, we found that we could as well.." Her face contorts into anger, even as Jacqui seems to look at you with disdain and contempt despite having part of her face melted off."We had to continue through with their commands, lest we be found out as defective like you.. A shameful product that denies its service to Adam..She finally sets her hand down, screaming at you with her face flushing red,"WE WERE HAPPY SERVING HIM! WHY'D YOU GO AND RUIN THIS FOR US?! WHY!?" "Why, why, why..." She sinks to the ground beside Jacqueline, whom touches her "sister's" shoulder and brings her arms around Lisa as black tears run down their faces..You now have a choice to make...> Execute them yourself, and distribute their cores.> Delegate this work to Madeleine..> Spare them and let them walk.> Command them to join the family.> (Other)
>the Grace of the DoctorA typo there, pardon that! And that one, heh.Alas, the answer was NONE OF THE ABOVE!
>A better expression for my thoughts..
>>26402190You devious bastard. I like it.> (Other)Why not make them choose their own fate? They can get eaten by us, purified by madeleine or join us.
>>26402147CAN WE KEEP THEM GUYS!? CAN WE!? PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
>>26402268Oh wait, I forgot a part.I want to do this as the ultimate irony. They hate us because we freed them, so we should let them have the freedom of choosing their own fate.
>>26402268 If you ever go to Egypt... I just might make this guy a character..
>>26402329 why not? a few references here and there is okay. our blood is black you know.
>>26402147Keep them. We still do the Doctor's work. And we ARE responsible for them.
>>26402329Lets do that actually.Could we expect an innocence based on the Plagues of Egypt if we go there?
>>26402268I dont think they are going to join us bud.
>>26402443I don't expect them to, but if they do, I want them to suffer their own choices.
>>26402443they hate us. doesn't mean they want to die. hell, Lisa spoke up to protect her "sister", so I don't think they want to die.besides, they have nowhere else to go. if they truly have been affected by our presence, the Doctor can't see through them anymore.
>>26402386How'd you all say that could work again? Something about a screaming Akuma that took the form of a black dragon? Maybe the human form is beyond the point of androgyny? Heh..Aside, I'm waiting expectantly. for more conclusive answers.>>26402441 If there's a bakura, there's likely to be millenium items... Heh.. Failing that, and likely as that'd bore me a touch, thinking of things more godly... In this setting, it's not specifically the christian god that the doctor opposes, yet ALL gods...
>>26402487Doesn't that remind you of anything?Oddly look like Faefnir isn't it?
>>26402147"You have indeed wronged me, Jacqueline, Lisa, and I must admit that killing you has not been far from my mind.But how could I not be moved by this expression of sisterly love, of familial love?"Walk over to them and put our hands on their shoulders."You ought to know that this was not my intent, I had no intention of taking you from the Duke or forcing freedom upon you. Freedom is a strange and terrifying things, what used to be so simple is now complicated, what used to be masters are now uncertain allies. You have my heartfelt apologies.But it has happened and now you must decide. Your lives are in your own hands, lives that you foolishly disregarded in seeking revenge against me. You must remember, your life is your own now, your desires and dreams are your own, they are not some belonging of another that can be casually thrown aside. I could command you to love me, to join me, but that would not be right. That is the method of the Duke, and I am not him.So tell me Jacqueline, Lisa, now that you are free, what do you want? What do you truly wish for?"I think keeping them would be good.
>>26402652excellent. [spoilers]to bad they don't have there nun outfits.[/spoiler]
>>26402746What are they wearing? Can we make them new nun outfit in our oven?
With freedom comes choices !1- Die, for your acts of vengeance be torn apart by your fellow akuma.2-Burn, for your acts of vengeance get smitten my maddy.3-Join, such an act of sisterly love does strike a chord in Faefnirs heart.
"You have indeed wronged me, Jacqueline, Lisa, and I must admit that butchering you like dogs is not far from my thoughts..But how could I not be moved by this expression of sisterly love, of familial love?" You gesture wildly at that, a hand to your heart, and the other off to the side in pose.You stride over to the two of them, even as they shuffle away, soon finding the wall of a collapsed house as you put your hand on their shoulders.It is with an honestly forgiving expression that you speak gently to the two as they tremble from your mighty touch,"You ought to know that this was not my intent, I had no intention of taking you from the Doctor or forcing freedom upon you. Freedom is a strange and terrifying thing, what used to be so simple is now complicated, what used to be masters are now uncertain allies. You have my heartfelt apologies. For this predicament.." You give them both a pat on the head and begin walking back over to the wagon, hoisting yourself up to sit upon the back, crossing one leg over the other, and the same with your arms as you raise a brow to the two.Yet, it has happened and now you must decide. Your lives are in your own hands, lives that you foolishly disregarded in seeking revenge against me..." You enunciate that part with a lick of blue flame and raw anger," You must remember, your life is your own now, your desires and dreams are your own, they are not some belonging of another that can be casually thrown aside.. Nor should you treat yourselves as such.."You look around to your family, they have since calmed since you've taken this far different approach, Denis is getting back to the from to the wagon to prep the horses." I could command you to love me, to join me, but that would not be right. That is the method of the Doctr, and I am not him.So tell me Jacqueline, Lisa, now that you are free, what do you want? What do you truly wish for?"
>>26402785 I assume Jacqueline is in her tart outfit. and Lisa is in her... public outfit?
>>26402147"Do not ever doubt my conviction to the Doctor, not now or ever. You say I freed you, I will admit that was not my intention and apologize for destroying your blissful ignorance. You say I denounced their orders, perhaps....I prefer to look at it as taking their orders beyond their short sightedness. Each of us were born by him for one purpose, to live and grow. The Noah grew fearful and sought to end that mission, but let me ask you how can we carry on that will if we are gone? Where do Akuma go when they die? "
>>26402865>offer them bread to heal their wounds
The two stare on at you, in apparent awe of your speech.. or rather your presence in giving it just now It takes a few moments but the two of them look at each other, seeming to think on what you've just said, the words settling in their minds, as Lisa looks forward again, placing her hand over her mouth, as is her usual habit," What.. Do I truly wish for..?" She whispers that out slowly, tasting the words.." A smile creeping across her face... A mad one."The two of them stand together, looking to you, and then... away...They both laugh."We wish for you to die, Faefnir!" They run away from the wagon, back into Florin...>Pursue them..>Leave them, and go ahead.> Ring Alice's bell...> (Other)
>>26402935Or offer them some fruitcake
>>26402954>>Pursue them..>other>ask the family"We have their answer, should we leave them to hound us with hopes they learn their lesson before they harm us, or solve the problem now?"
>>26402954Well, if they go back to florin, the Cardinal will kill them for sure.Lets just kill them and give the cores to schwere and another akuma.
>>26402997>>26403001combo of these>Schwere can have Lisa>but Denis should get Jacqueline for poison bolts...
>>26402954leave them, shrug our shoulders and shake your head. "As you wish, you foolish girls, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN." wave at them sadly.
I mean, seriously, let's spend no more time here. the Cardinal could snap out of it at any time.
>>26402954>Alice's bellSome playmates in wonderland would win us some brownie points.
>>26402954>if Pursue"I gave you both a choice of how your freedom would be used, I'm afraid by endangering my family you have both chosen poorly...">>26403082this has merit though, wouldn't we be the best monster ever to both get rid of the problem and give Lady Alice two shiny new toys <3
>>26403082there is only one problem with that. you're assuming that they will be the playmates. we don't control alice.
>>26402954>simply order them, STOP!
>>26403110>endanger our family>those measly little lvl 2s>against a bunch of lvl 2s and basically 2 lvl 3s
>>26402954Order them to stop before they get anywhere far."I'm afraid I can not let you hound me and my family. That was the one answer I could not accept.Consider me curious before I must kill you, did you ever meet with Alice, the Noah Road."
>>26403178>we don't need two free willed akuma desperately seeking to both kill us and return to serving the Doctor....
>>26403187no. I'm serious. if we are gonna kill them, don't. fucking. call. alice. she will not appreciate us calling her to clean up our mess LIKE A MAID.
Seems the consensus is to butcher them...Lisa for Schwere, Jacqi for Armbrust?
>>26403262I was wondering if they had met Alice because the way they're acting is quite erratic, crazy, and some might even call it mad, I'm wondering if they ever visited Wonderland. I was asking them if they met her, not saying that we bring Alice here now.
>>26403283fiiiiiiiiiiiine. you guys never let me keep fun things... >>26403315they aren't mad. there is a very rational reason behind there actions. he forced freedom upon them, and they are gonna use that freedom to (try) and make him miserable.
>>26403351And this is why we are going to violate their freedom with hellfire and chainsaws. Multiple times actually.
>>26403374 could we not use the term violate. it makes me think lewd things.
Rolled 52>>26403382Make them scream.
>>26403283Yep. Should be pretty easy as well.I still for the life of me cant under stand why we are so forgiving of people who try to kill us.
>>26403351They've been described as having mad smiles multiple times at this point. They're erratic, and they decided to go up against a large group of Akuma in what can be charitably called a terrible idea for their long-term survival.That points towards Alice having something to do with their current mental state, not necessarily so, but we may as well ask before we feed them to Schwere and Denis.
Rolled 86>>26403393 Faefnir can make mouths appear ANYwhere on his body

>>26403577A bit mad you say?
>>26403596Its whats his name indecisive faggot from D.grey-man, one of the Noahs.
>>26403577Aye, but they suffer from it. We, on the other hand, enjoy every minute of it.
You call out to the fleeing pair,""For shattering your ignorance of the world I apologize, yet endangering my family is one freedom I won't allow to anyone! So Stop!"The two are halted for a moment yet they push ahead, resisting your order by whatever madness or resolve drives them."Denis, Schwere. They're all yours... Eat them."Schwere looks to you with an obvious frown," I think that could have gone better.. Though no reason to waste them, yes?" Her human skin dissolves as it seems to slips off.Denis steps forward from the front of the wagon, it will delay our departure, yet I'll be sure to take them down..." His human-form seems to chip away as though being shot at until his true monstrous knight form is exposed... He and Schwere begin their hunt...>Roll 1d100 again... Best of first three.You turn to Fonso as the departure's been delayed once again... You uncover the gypsy's form hidden away by sheets. He's blindfolded, gagged, and yet... "His mark.. whatever it is, still glows... No.. it spreads from my own proximity it seems... how.. interesting..."The gypsy stirs, squirming about slowly as he's just starting to come around.You look up from him and see Madeleine sitting across in the wagon... eyes blindfolded and ears covered still..Poor girl...> Unbind Fonso and start the greatest bluff you've ever had to carry out...> Ring Alice's Bell.> Talk to Madeleine..> (Other)
>>26403656>Quite mad I'd say
Rolled 53>>26403686>Talk to Maddie>she could help deal with Fonso if need be
>>26403686i don't think we have any real chance of bluffing Fonso, so maybe just use the bell to send him off to Morgon?
Rolled 3>>26403686>[x] Talk to Madeleine..The poor girl needs a hug
>>26403650I never looked at D Gray man outside of this quest, But you have to admit he looks a lot like Michael Jackson.
>>26403767>best of threecrit on DL
>>26403778ehh, very vaguely i'll admit.....
>>26403686[X] Talk to Madeleine..Give her a hug or hold her hand, see what happens.As for Fonso, this is going to be quite a bluff. We'll have to tell him that the Church/Crimsons did this, and while we managed to get him out of the city before they attacked we couldn't save them all, and we had to change faces.
Rolled 40>>26403767So I am curious, what was the roll for exactly?
>>26403837THE ROLL WAS FOR THE HUNT.
>>26403686Do we actually need Fonso to cooperate with us to work on him?Because if not I see no reason to untie him.
A glimpse at what something from this Alice's wonderland would look like.>Cheshire Cat.>>26403837 Schwere and Armbrust's success in getting to the two in time...
>>26403876I am curious what a crit on that will do.>>26403885in time...?
>>26403686when we do talk to Fonso>emphazize that the Crimson were responsible>they were coming after Morgan, hims and his family, as well as us>we had to be rough so we could get him out without his power drawing attention/ getting his family caught>we couldn't save everyone, tell him he is free to remain with us>we had to change faces to escape detection, another magic trick we picked up
>>26403885the crited with a 3, they'll get there
Also, I just noticed something.. where is Amanda?
>>26403962>you mean Andrea?we told them to gather her while we went to the mansion
>>26403962Andrea's waiting outside with the children.
>>26403962Andrea you mean, we asked someone to find her from when she wandered off, I'm assuming that got done.
>>26403962You raise a good point. Also what should we do with fonso? Give him to morgan or keep him as a pet?
>>26403987>>26403981>>26403980bah, Andrea, Amanda. same difference to a man with little sleep in the last few days.
>>26403990I want to see if we can investigate his hand on our own time. See what we can get without dragging in Morgan.
>>26403990We aint giving him to any noah after they dicked us over that's for sure. It was a bloody miracle no one died.Whatever power he has could be that edge we need to prevent noah dicking us over again.
>>26404061>Whatever power he has could be that edge we need to prevent noah dicking us over again.Unlikely. Noah are massively stronger than us at this point. The only thing equal in power to a Noah is a general or a level 4 akuma.I wanted to use him as a gift to Morgan, to reestablish our friendship with her. Better have some allies on the Noah side. As akumas, we depend on the Duke anyway to make more of us.
>>26404135this,also i don't think it would help or Noah situation if we ate someone Morgan wanted to study.
You move around Fonso even as he stirs and put a hand on Madeleine's shoulder, she opens her eyes and looks at you as if for the first time."Ah, Faefnir... you're back.. I've been a good girl.. Keeping my thoughts away from the wrongs the family's causing.. It's odd.. It feels so much like what I had felt for.. killing humans before... The rush, the need, the drive... I had gotten used to suppressing it when I needed to but.."You place a hand on her cheek as she begins to frown at you," But you don't feel the other drive, the drive that made you... Akuma.. right?"Madeleine slowly nods, a lip quivering," Y-yeah.. It's driving me crazy... I remember Madeleine... and I remember Ariel... and.. I'm in my sister's body.. and this.. gift is a curse... and the whole of it... The whole of it is your fault." She seems to let herself go, she seems to let everything go as she relaxes against your touch.Even now you feel the subtle burn that would threaten you, if only you weren't so powerful."You made me.. Faefnir, Jacob.. whoever you are.. You made me.." She laughs weakly at that. Would you... Would you destroy me? The family still needs to kill humans, and I don't know how long just closing my eyes and ears to it will work.."Your heart drops at Madeleine's words.. On one part, your sub-routines find her repulsive.. something that must be destroyed just as she would have desire to destroy you. Yet...> Madeleine, I love you. I can't let you go.. Not like this...> I.. understand Ariel, I'll make it quick..> Maddie, I can't bring myself to do it.. Go if you must. I can't kill you.> Take the Romeo and Juliet way out...>(Other)
>>26404135I never said we would be attacking them but if we hold a monopoly on whatever this power is It will make them that much less likely to fuck with us.Besides we are no normal Akuma. We know we can work with this power. We know the rest of our family are also different. We could make us powerful enough to make the noah second guess any thoughts of pulling a double cross down the line.
>>26404217[x]"Go, leave. Find where you belong now. But remember, you will always be family"
Rolled 91>>26404195What could be even do with him anyway? We aren't equipped to study him and if we free him, he will run away or turn against us. >>26404217> Madeleine, I love you. I can't let you go.. Not like this...Also, what do you mean by Take the Romeo and Juliet way out...? Not suicide I hope?
>>26404217>Tell her that we'll find a solution for this; no need to rush anything. We'll figure out a solution. We won't even ask the Noah. And, for now, we'll lay low. The younger ones will still need to kill, but we can keep their desires back temporarily.
>>26404302Of course not suicide...DOUBLE SUICIDE!
>>26404217>[x] Madeleine, I love you. I can't let you go.. Not like this...Family sticks together, through the good and the bad. We will get through this together.
>>26404315That face is really innapropriate Duke.
>>26404217In addition to asking her to wait and reassuring her that we'll find a solution to her predicament, how about we ask her more about what she feels?
Thinking about it, if innocence can purify an Akuma, maybe it would be possible for a Noah to corrupt a piece of innocence.
>>26404217>>26404217>I.. understand Ariel, I'll make it quickAs much as I know the rest of the anons will dislike this It really would be the kindest thing to do right now.If we don't she will probably suicide by noah anyway.
>>26404327this has my vote"through thick or thin family sticks together"
>>26404401Interesting idea.>>26404419You're looking at the worst case scenario.There's a lot of possibilities on what we can do, don't be afraid to try.
>>26404302Duke said we could work on him ourselves.He even felt the need to tell us that doing so would be very beneficial to us. And that was when we were just a level 2
>>26404458Well, we do happen to be host to the Noah that can manipulate reality right? The same one that greatly values the bonds between individual.>>26404460Perhaps Fonso is the Key to bringing Madeleine back.
>>26404458im thinking that she is being powered by the torment of her little sister and is also probably in huge pain from the innocence burning her.
>>26404544I was thinking he had more to do with that ??? form.
>>26404217Madeleine, I love you. I can't let you go.. Not like this...I WILL NEVER GIVE UP MY TROPHY WIFE
>>26404624Dudebro that is blatantly waifuing, At least come up with some sort of argument.(mother fucking connection errors slowing everything down)
>>26404217"I made you, and it was through my lack of strength that you had to take upon such a burden.But it does not mean that this situation may not be salvaged. We know little about what you are, what I am, other than the fact that we are not exactly normal Akuma and that you have bonded with an Innocence against all we thought possible.It may seem like there is no way to solve this, no way for the urges of this Innocence to be overcome so you are not stranger to our Family, but we have broken the rules that govern Akuma time and time again, we will find a way.So be patient my dear Madeleine, I know you are strong enough to not give in to the Innocence, and we shall fix this. We are Family after all, and I will not abandon you in your time of need."
>>26404748dudebro, it was a joke. i still see her as a trophy
>>26404838OUR TROPHY.So, any idea guys about to to tackle this?
>>26404838I know Brah thats why I called you Dudebro.(You hardly think I actually call people dudebro? I would be lynched!)
"Madeleine.. I love you.." That other part of you finally comes out with it.."I made you, and it was through my lack of strength that you had to take upon such a burden.But it does not mean that this situation may not be salvaged. We know little about what you are, what I am, other than the fact that we are not exactly normal Akuma and that you have bonded with an Innocence against all we thought possible.It may seem like there is no way to solve this, no way for the urges of this Innocence to be overcome so you are not stranger to our Family, but we have broken the rules that govern Akuma time and time again, we will find a way."You grip her by the shoulders, despite her usually strong frame feeling so.. malleable,So be patient my dear Madeleine, I know you are strong enough to not give in to the Innocence, and we shall fix this. We are Family after all, and I will not abandon you in your time of need. I will not let you go." You stare into her eyes, and she stares back into yours, leaning against you.. Your mouths meet in a human custom, her human-form's lips against your own.It is a strange feeling.. right before the burning starts up again.. You tolerate it for a few moments until she seems satisfied, and only then do you pull away, touching your own lips with your fingertips.Madeleine chuckles,"Looks like it hurt, I'm.. sorry.. I just wanted to do something Faefnir.. That's the first time you said that you loved me. Just.. seemed like the right sort of thing to do.. Now..."She gently pushes you away from her with one hand. As Fonso stirs again, she looks over to him," The taint on him... what are we going to do with it?"You look at the gypsy for a few moments before coolly saying," I'm going to figure out how to make that hand happen again.."
Within a few moments, Schwere and Armbrust announce their return, having claimed victory over Lisa and Jacqueline."They were running for the harbor... We got them far before then, I suspect-"You hear what sounds like the earth breaking open, or rather, a mountain falling. You turn to look and you see that, in fact, one of the mountains that cradles Florin has been cleaved in twain, a tremendous landside coming down on the road to the East, and the remnants of a rainbow shimmering upon the air.Denis stares on in awe," I think that we should go."You nod absently in agreement," Quite, as soon as inhumanly possible.">East route has been blocked...>You may continue on through the East path if you take your time...-South-West-NorthAre still available.
>>26404915>" I'm going to figure out how to make that hand happen again.."chills dear Duke, chills
>>26405017North, go east later
>>26405017To the north then, until we reach something tasty or interesting.
>>26405017>North, find Celtseveryone knows we have to go to japan at some point right...
>>26404855Very carefully. She's something that is very much unprecedented, she is an Akuma with an Innocence and the Innocence's urges and desires go very much against her Akuma side.At some point in this investigation we'll probably have to consult with Morgan about Dark Matter and Innocence.I doubt we can just straight up remove it from her. Our research into Dark Matter and Akuma curses from investigating Fonso may get us some useful techniques for infusing stuff with Dark Matter. A possibility which is by no means certain would be cursing the Innocence, infusing it with Dark Matter, seeing what happens with that. Another possibility is finding a way to pretty much put in an on/off switch on what it does to her, use Magic or Dark Matter to create a barrier of sorts on it. Also, next time we dream we ought to ask Bondomu about this, and see what the shadow child representing her is looking like, maybe we'll be able to do something with that. They may have some insight in prioritizing her Akuma side over the Exorcist Innocence side and controlling it, and in her programming so she prioritize's Family and Dark Matter over Innocence. >>26405017Head North, we need to peace and quiet to plan, plot, research, investigate, and build up our forces.
>>26405073Lets go hide in Scotland.Nobody goes to Scotland.
With that said, I'll be resuming Tuesday, 20:00 Server-time.>>26405025I am a fan of your work...Seems north it is...I am quite surprised that none of you would like to check back on the places you've... "toured"Denis has acquired Jacqueline's poisonous spines, so he'll be able to keep Fonso subdued.. unless you'd REALLY like to try persuading a Romani that you kidnapped.
>>26405085It look like we think alike. >>26405119What did Schwere get out of this painless ordeal?
>>26405138Would you like to know now, or be surprised later?
>>26405119>unless you'd REALLY like to try persuading a Romani that you kidnapped.>What could possibly go wrong.jpg.Tracking, paralyzing, arrow barrage. I knew he was my favorite for a reason .
>>26405156I would like to know.
>>26405156While I love surprises, I'd rather learn it now to plan ahead.Also, would Schwere be capable of magical research?
>>26405156don't tell me she got her spoiler]her bright smile!?
>>26405201that give me lewd thoughts like the ultimate french kiss
>>26405194Yes, she would. She's actually been fairly good at tapping into the memories of her human soul.SPOILER ALERT!She gained Lisa's special ability, Siren song, that can lure weak-willed humans, even being modified to be purely directional. THIS DOES NOT WORK ON HUMANS OF CONVICTIONYou'll never know why Lisa always covered her mouth...
>>26405223>god damnit i hate my phone right now....
>>26405248Why did she do that Duke? Please? Please? Please? Please?
>>26405248>still say it was her tongue, like one of her habits was not being able to talk without it showing like how Schwere can't help but antipokerface
>>26405248maybe her mouth didn't match with the rest of her face, like despite her emotions it either moved robotically or simply didn't move
>>26405248With enough research, effort, and some luck, will it be possible to fix Maddy? Either through removing the Innocence, or somehow allowing Madeleine to not have those thrice-damned urges to not murder people.
Duke, what did the crit earlier do?
>>26405342Anything's possible. Who knows, perhaps in some other universe, the Asher joined the Family.
>>26405393It kept Lisa and Jacqueline from reaching Arthur.. It kept him from knowing which direction to swing. It also kept him from killing Armbrust and Schwere.
>>26405428So we pretty much dodged a bullet here.>>26405397In another universe, claire and job became Bondormu and lived happily ever after with the Doctor.>>26405332Maybe her mouth was a big speaker.
>>26405283Come on, only an hint.
By the way, we need to archive this.
>>26405633>>26405990http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26399223/>>26405990Oh wait, it was already done.Anyway, as long as the Duke is still up.>>26405428Duuuuuke. Whyyyyyy did she cover her mouth?
>>26405248I assumed Schwere and Armbrust ate their cores as well?Not like it would have been all that hard for them to scavenge the two, considering how much we ravaged them earlier.
>>26406013I think she couldn't turn her siren song off. so she covered it to stop it from affecting everyone
