>First thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26439322/>Twitter: https://twitter.com/ArchmagisterkunYour name is Hairy McTerrorcastle. At the age of five, you were identified as magically apt. Taken at age ten to the Fifth Circle Academy, you began a life of study, hoping to master the Magic within you. At fifteen, you and about a hundred other students were presented with the choice of specialisation. Seeking the knowledge of Summoning and Binding, you ventured further into your education, successfully completing your first class with the somewhat hyper Magister Pythianne.Having previously studied and grasped the spell they were covering in today’s lesson, you successfully completed it - bringing forth into the material plane, an imp named Bowie.You have met several other students, and attempted to befriend them.Class is over for today, and you have nothing else on your schedule. It is currently midday. You planned on asking Bowie for information about Summoning Magic.>Basic rules: Roll 1d100 to determine success of actions when asked to. Best of first three is used but critical fail overrides (critical success will counter critical fail).>Don't be a dick, be a dude.

>>26458201>???? 20>Summoning 15So confused
>>26458220I think he's giving us some HIDDEN POWAH.But in all seriousness, let's continue. We ask Bowie the Imp if he has any insight into summoning to share with us, since we seem to be hitting it off with him so well.
>>26458220There was a roll he said he was rolling last thread we rolled a 1
>>26458251He also said he's a scholar and that we were 'acceptable'. Perhaps ask what do to make sure it's him that comes through and not some lesser imp.
>>26458296Yes definitely. "So, how can I be sure to summon you and..." glance at other imps "not a lesser imp."
>>26458155You ask Bowie for information on Summoning. He's an Imp, and he said he knows a thing or two about Magic - maybe he's got a few things he can teach you?The red-skinned humanoid only clicks his teeth at you. "Krrr-rk. We are not. Binder, like you, Krrr-ka. We are..." It pauses, flexing it's wings idly. "Tricker. Liar. Deceiver." It nods at this, seemingly satisfied before flicking it's tail."Can't teach you. Fleshling different." It wrinkles it's scaled nose as it looks at you with squinted eyes. "But... will help you. Knowledge good. Seeking of knowledge better."
>>26458312Dont have to be binding, I'll take anything, evocation, summoning, random spells, perhaps youve even got a few friends that want the next big thing in town?
>>26458312"Even if we can't use it, it's good to understand, yes?"
>>26458334Oh, that's a good idea. "Are there things from the mortal world that your kind especially vie for? Things that you can take back when the binding wears off?">Establish trade with outsiders>???>Profit
>>26458359I actually meant, if hes got any friends that want a cool new master. But your idea works too
>>26458424"Do you know the witch's/mage's/wizard's alphabet? If you can write it down, it'll be easier for me to learn. Foreign tongues sound like gibberish to us fleshlings until we practice."
Rolled 31>>26458424I roll to say his name. Maybe we not fuck this up.
>>26458455Oh, yeah, if we research "Ghost Sound" maybe we can use it to pronounce shit for us.
>>26458424Can we sub "Bowie" in instead of that screech, or is there a spell we can use to play back sounds.Also, what do you gain out of this? What kind of imp just gives themself away,
>>26458493He said it himself, they're liars and cheats. He probably just made a bunch of gibberish sounds and expects us to fail. He's obviiously humoring us...But it's going to be fun figuring things out later.
>>26458424Ask our teacher, we are still in class.Apologise to Bowie, we're new to this.Although, if they're all liars and tricksters, why should we trust him?
>>26458572Who said anything about trust.Asking the teach would be good though... >_>
>>26458581I meant about his name, for all we know he could have given us the name of some super tentacle beast that'll rape us if we can't bind it
Rolled 21>>26458572>why should we trust himBecause we bound him? I'd think that would require tem to tell the 'truth', eveen if they can still omit things or misrepresent the truth if they really want to.
"Do you know Imperial?" It gives you a blank look. "No. Telepathic." It snaps at you, with a flick of it's tail. It has no concept of friendship, but it seems to grasp sarcasm quite well. Delightful."Can you write it down?" Bowie frowns slightly, but shakes it's head. "Krrr-rk. Only felt. Not seen." Hmmm. Can't write it down... well, you DID hear it. Maybe you can replicate it?>31You attempt to repeat the horrible screeching noise you remembered. You honestly have no idea how to do this. You don't even know where to begin. Bowie only gives you a curious look. "Krr-tik?"You get the feeling you failed miserably. "Um... just trying to say your name." Bowie clicks his teeth again. "Idiot fleshling. Cannot understand. Krrrr-kark." It seems vaguely annoyed at you now.You scratch your chin. It occurs to you that you never wondered what Bowie gets from all this - he's been very cooperative but the Guide did say that Imps and Hellish entities in general did not work for free."Say, Bowie... why are you so helpful? What do you get out of this?" It gives you a glance and bares it's teeth in it's strange smile."Ha! Krrr-ka think properly now. Like any fleshling, not understand own actions. Summoning is contract. We take magic, serve in response. That is trade. We give name on... credit." It gives you another scrutinising look. "Krr-ka... has potential."Not entirely sure what to make of this, you look around for Magister Pythianne. She's... gone. She's probably somewhere else in the Summoning Chambers though.
Rolled 5>>26458639Well I'm glad I'm not just wasting your time Bowie.Since I'm having trouble with this, I'll ask my teacher for help, you're coming along.
>>26458639So let me get this straight, you cant share your magic with us because you don't channel, you have stores of magic harvested from different sources.Is that right?
Look for Pythianne. Meanwhile, ask Bowie about the nature of contracts and what exactly it is the Imps get out of them. Also, ask if there are other things Imps and their kind want from fleshlings?
>>26458639>creditMy bernanke senses are tingling. What happens if we give him lots and lots of magic?
>>26458682If this is the case, Ask Bowie if he can teach us this magic sucking powerWe can harvest from other students in exchange for favors
Rolled 60>>26458682>>26458707>inb4 an annoyed Bowie tells this stupid fleshling that it not work that way
>>26458738Speaking of He calls us fleshling Which implies he isnt made of fleshHis skin was flame likeIn D&D there are mages that bind a demon skin to themPotential?
>>26458773>Find out what Imps want, magic power it seems but that needs elaboration.>Trade it for their dead.>???>Profit
Rolled 44>>26458773No potential, I'd prefer not to be a daemon just yet.
>>26458806No, but that means that SOMEONE might want it. If there's a market, we can fill it.
Rolled 20>>26458813It wouldn't work like that, silly fleshling.
How quickly can we grind our summoning skill? And who can we talk to to find out our mystery 20 stat? It's right next to Blood so I'm very intrigued.
>>26458738>Right on the nail."Well. I'm going to look for the Magister." You leave the main chamber and look around. You have no idea where you are or where to go. Bowie tugs on your collar and points down a corridor. "That way."Thanking the Imp, you head down the dark corridor, and decide to ask it a few more questions whilst you have the chance. "Say... I don't suppose there's a way we can learn how to harvest magic like you do?" Bowie flicks you with his tail lightly and gives you an annoyed glance. "Just checking.""Krrrk. We know of fleshling before. Great fleshlings that stole life and power from all. But not in our way." He's probably referring to the Magi of ages past, likely ones that practiced Blood Magic."Why do you want our magic? Do you need it to cast your own spells?" Bowie points you down another corridor and considers the question. "Not 'need'. Magic give power." You don't bother asking it why it wants power."Is there anything else Imps want from us 'fleshling?" "Us? No. Power is all. Others?" Bowie shrugs as best he can, wings flexing."Others want others want. Most want Magic. Some are... different."You arrive at a small door - the iron plaque clearly reads 'MAGISTER PYTHIANNE - SUMMONING AND BINDING'.You can hear muffled conversation coming from the door.>Listen in? (1d100)>Knock?>Something else?
>>26458865>supposed to be "Others want what others want", blargh
Rolled 33I wonder if Blood magic could be used in conjunction with things we summon.
>>26458201>Summon Imp (Summoning) (DC 30)Yesterday that was 35. It dropped to 30 after>Congratulations! You have gained +5 Summoning! (Source: Class)So does that mean that at level 45 we can summon imps without rolls? Lets get 45 asap. Imps4days
Rolled 6>>26458865Perhaps we can try outTHE ALL SEEING EYE!Ask the imp to help
Rolled 61>>26458865>Listen in? (1d100)lets hear some stuff!
>>26458865>Knock?Don't be a dick.
>>26458865Listen in.Also, guys, we need to see if we can store our own magic in a jar or something to trade upon summoning when the opportunity arises.
Rolled 38Tell me Bowie, if my magic power gives you power over there, if I increased the amount of magic I gave you each time I summoned you, would you be able to help me more?Would you become stronger and capable of more feats?
>>26458904>>26458928>>26458913You briefly consider whether to knock or to listen in, before deciding to eavesdrop. Mischief away!Bowie's ears twitch only slightly but otherwise it makes no moves to do anything else. Pressing your ear against the wood, you can clearly hear two voices and a soft... snoring?"... but that's why you really should be more careful Pythia. Summoning's numbers have been declining. What will we ever do without it?" You're fairly sure that's the Archmagister's voice."Jasper, as an educator, my goal is to inspire! And what inspiration could they need if not that of the cute and adorable?""I'm just saying Pythia, Lyssa has been very insistent that you don't summon anything too... horrifying. There was last year's incident with the Herald you remember?""If you're worried about the students being irresponsible, then we should drive home the dangers of unsupervised magic!""All I'm saying is please consider... cutting back on it a little. For the student's sake." You hear a sigh."... Alright. I'll try and stick to elemental spirits from now on, and basic outsiders.""Thank you Pythia. Now, if you excuse me, I have a lecture of my own to begin."He's heading towards the door.>Actions?
Rolled 43>>26459077Whoops, was supposed to roll there.
>>26459077Knock on the door.If he asks why we're here, it's to say how cool the summon was, and how to get help with the names.
Rolled 40>>26459077knock on the door before he gets there
Rolled 4Why did we come down here again?
Rolled 93>>26459077We should knock before he gets to the door. That or set us up like we just got to the door and be in the motion of starting to knock
>>26459132To get help with getting Bowie's true name.She may also give us some "extra" lessons.
Rolled 62>>26459166You knock on the door. No sooner than when your fist had left the door and began descending for another knock does the door swing open.Sitting a mahogany desk, littered with books and scrolls is Magister Pythianne whose turned to face you, her face shifting from vague curiousity to positive delight when she realises it's a student.Archmagister Jasper is present, as you figured he was. What you didn't expect however, was the fact that he is currently riding a llama. He gives you a friendly smile and a "Hello!"Reclining on a couch opposite the desk is... the Magister in white. Vann you think his name was. He's... sleeping. Huh.Bowie settles on your shoulder, talons gripping you lightly. "Ah! McTerrorcastle wasn't it? Come in, come in! You had questions? Well, I have answers! That's what I'm here for, after all, you know, teaching, educating." She says excitedly, practically shooting out of her chair to pull you into the room and all but pushing you into one of the cushy armchairs in front of her desk."I just wanted to say how cool the class was. The Daemon, I mean. Awesome." Jasper gives you a scrutinising look, but nods at your words. "See Jas?" Pythianne puffs her chest out, causing her cleavage to bounce slightly. "The new generation knows where it's at!" The Archmagister makes a disinterested hm of mild agreement in favour of studying you for a bit more. "Well, I'll tell Lyssa maybe her worries are a tad unfounded this year. But! The lecture awaits! Onwards, noble steed!" The Llama begins to trot away.Pythianne turns to you as the door closes itself behind Jasper. "I also wanted to know about um... well, learning Bowie's name." Pythianne glances at the Imp who clicks it's teeth.She gives you a thoughtful look, turning a tad more serious before nodding. "Well, if you want to learn it's name, it's not as easy as learning say, my name.">cont
Rolled 5>>26459312"For Infernals, names are... not something light? I mean, for us, name's are just identifiers, but for Infernal's are more closely tied to the self. Names are... an expression of the self. To learn their names you have to... learn them? If that makes sense?" She frowns slightly."What do you think, Haztoraxifeliv?" Your not sure what exactly she says, but the harsh guttural noises and screeching sounds echo in your ears, a tingling sense of warmth. Bowie blinks in surprise before giving the Magister a shrewd look.She laughs lightly at his expression. "Oh don't look at me like that, cutie. I'm not a Magister because of my charming personality you know.">Actions?
>>26459312>cleavageGod bless the person who chose Summoning. God bless them.Also, from the last thread:>"She likes what she summons. She likes it a lot. Other people don't." With that, he turns back to his book.Is she into tentacles or something? So much potential.
>>26459380Not really, are you using magic to help?
>>26459380And you expected us to learn that straight off the bat Bowie?Or Haztoraxifeliv?And I think that charm of yours is a little more prominent that you think, although your powers aren't to be doubted either...
Rolled 55>>26459429I'll back this.
>>26459380So is there like a crash course in daemonic I can take or...?
>>26459451She's saying that to learn a daemon's name you have to know *them*, although I imagine the process becomes simpler when you know how to do it, we should research into that next.
>"...Ok. So, because their name is an expression of their 'self', I have to get to know them to actually know their name. But then how did you figure it out so fast? Is there a way we can practice it?"
>>26459380So I was reading about summoning this eye..but with the "no unsupervised magic rule..can you help me try and do it?
Rolled 41>>26459493Need to sex?
Combine >>26459531 and >>26459429And if he says "but she just did it" then we will say she's the best in the business, and we're a goddamn novice.
>>26459541Throw in a mention while saying this about a friend wanting to summon a succubi.
>>26459616"Summoning hot bitches" was the entire reason we became summoners.
>>26459451>>26459429>>26459418>>26459531"Not really. Do you use magic to help or is there like a crash course I can take?" She giggles lightly at you and leans back in her chair. You can hear slight mumbling behind you followed by more snoring."A crash course? Well, I suppose I can offer one. You don't generally start learning about names proper until later though. The basic gist is..." She pauses, trying to find the way to describe it."Focus on what you feel when you hear it. Infernal names aren't sounds so much as they are... feelings. As for how I did it so easily sweetie? Practice mostly. Practice with a lot of different Infernals. It gets easier to understand the name and really get a hold it's meaning."You turn to look at the Imp perched on your shoulder. It looks back at you. "And you expected us to understand that on our first go?" It flicks you with it's tail in mild annoyance."Don't blame it dear - it's kind of like discussing colour to the blind, or music to the deaf. It's not that you're blind per se, so much as it is you've never experienced it before." She waves her hand at one of her shelves, and a book zips into her grasp."Here. 'Dissertation on Daemons' by Atrocitus. Don't let his name bother you, it's really quite informative. Eager students get me all excited to teach!" She squeals again, hugging herself as she does so."But, if it's your little friend's name you want to learn, the best way to start is to listen to them say it. I could probably help, but it'd be considered rude for me to teach you their name. Especially whilst their right there!" She giggles again. "Is there anything else I can help you with, dear?">Actions?
>>26459637I concur>>26459654Thank her for the information and ask if there are any practical positions for learning summoning available on campus like a lab assistant or something for more hands-on learning. After that, retire and DEVOUR THAT BOOK
>>26459654Ask her about the different varieties of daemons that can be summoned, from succubi to Cthulu.Ask her when her free time is, so we can arrange summoning sessions, ask for good books too.Oh, and add in some flirting between those pages.
>>26459654excuse ourselves to study time. AND READ DAT FUCKEN BOOK!
>>26459699This, more infodump and possible infodump the better.
>>26459654I read about>Ahazi’s All Seeing Eye (Summoning) (DC 70)It seem really neat, can you supervise me trying to summon one?
>>26459697>"Is there any place we can go to safely practice our summons?">flirting: "What's your favorite summon? Do you prefer teeth, or tentacles?">"I was looking at this cool spell, Ahazi's All Seeing Eye...it seems a little tough, though. Do you have time to supervise while I try it out?"
>>26459697>>26459699>>26459723"What other kinds of daemons are there, exactly?" She scratches her chin lightly at this hmmm'ing under her breath."Feasibly? Infinite. Part of what we do here at the Fifth Circle Academy is actually research into Magic, pushing it's boundaries and learning the extent of what is and isn't possible." She hugs herself again, swaying slightly with another squeal of excitement. There's a snort behind you, but the snoring resumes again."Just thinking about all those potential things waiting to be summoned gives me GOOSEBUMPS!" She pauses slightly to regain her train of thought, having been distracted by imagined things you probably don't want to think about."In terms of Infernals though, the main ones you'll probably concern yourselves with are Imps, Hounds, Keepers, Incubi/Succubi, Devils, and Daemons. Those are the main 'categories' I suppose you could call them, but their are others and variations within them."You nod slowly, noting those for later research or thought. She gives you a serious look. "There are the more... individualised outliers but I'd advise you heavily to avoid them in general. The last time someone tried to even contact one... well... it didn't end well." You assume this might be the 'Herald' incident. It might be worth looking into."Do you have some free time we could do some summoning in? I want to practice this spell I read about, ah, Ahazi's All Seeing Eye."She blinks at you slightly, before giving you a sly look. "Doing a bit of snooping are we hmmm? Got your... EYE on someone?" She laughs at her little joke. "Of course!" She points out several times she's free this week, but regrettably notes she has some overseeing to do soon right now. "If you keep the Eye around, try not to get up to too much mischief with it." She gives you a wink for good measure."Well... if you don't mind me asking, what's your favourite summon?" You try to put on a more 'friendly' tone.>cont.
Rolled 99>>26459654Ask her about Succubi
Rolled 9>>26459930Oh god please dont
>>26459930I'd like to apply that role to >>26459924 if possible
>>26459930Well shit, 99 has spoken.Ask about incubi and omnibuses too though, as well as what they've been used for in the past, I want to see what makes summoning important here.
>>26459930well shit. If we are asking this, then we need to word it in a way that doesn't make it sound like WE are asking for ourselves. Pass it off as over hearing some other students in the hall or what have you
>>26459924"So, what would you summon an incubus for? I mean, do they have any use other than sucking your soul out when you turn your back on them?">Captchaaccidentally hutsbatYou accidentally what'ed your hutsbat, captcha?
>>26459924She squeals."Ohhhh! How could I choose just ONE? I mean, there's the Gurgling Terrors, the Eater of All Things, um... if it's Infernals, I'm really partial to Daemons, I mean, how can I not be, all those spines and carapace, and the way they speak and aaaah..." She sighs dreamily, staring off into the distance."Elementals, ohh, I really do quite like the Lightning ones. The static's really tingly and it's not that bothersome. Celestials, the Choir of Heaven is absolutely divine!" She giggles again at her little joke. "My main focus is on a different plane though. The Entropic plane. I... oh I can't choose a favourite from there." She sighs wistfully."Incubi and Succubi? Do people really summon those?" You try to phrase it as though you are surprised without giving away that you were harbouring thoughts about doing that yourself. She gives you a sly look anyway."Of course silly - teenagers exist after all. But yes, people have summoned those before. Most magi in history weren't particularly picky about where they could draw power from. And well, perverts exist in every area of life.""What kind of role does summoning really serve in the Empire though?""Well! It depends on what you prefer to summon really! Elementals are always useful and considered the 'pragmatic' choice - lots of cities like having an Elemental Summoner to help them with general things like watering the crops, construction, you know that kind of thing. Most people use Infernals and Celestials as servants and helpers. Devil's trade knowledge and secrets for... various things, and Celestial's are great if you aren't good at healing. As for the Entropic plane? Research!" Her eyes light up again.You thank her for her time and leave, taking the book with you back to your dormitory.You pass a few students you don't recognise on your way back, and find your room much as you left it. Jaqul hasn't returned from whatever it was he was doing today, so you have it to yourself.>cont.
>>26460002Why not just ask about the history of summoning?And then inquire more when she asks about incubi and succubi when she mentions them?Anyway, why are you so keep to stop us asking?
>>26460046You settle down with the book, 'Dissertation on Daemons'. Bowie flutters over to the desk to just watch you, somewhat bored but vaguely interested in what you're doing.>Bowie has two hours left until he leaves.>Read the book? (1d100, 1 hour)>Something else?
>>26460076Read the book and then try to learn Bowie's name.
1) study book for intro and major tips2) talk with Bowie, try to get a handle on his name
Rolled 52>>26460076Ask Bowie if for the first hour of investigating he can (softly) say his name over and over again as we study.

Rolled 53rolling for reading
Rolled 68>>26460130It's funny. McTerrorcastle has a douche name and swag, but is clearly a summoning geek. It's the most awesome character combination ever.ONWARD. SOON WE SHALL HAVE EXTRAPLANAR BOOBS AT OUR DISPOSAL.
Rolled 39>>26460076>Read the book? (1d100, 1 hour)I also think we should ask Bowie about his name.
Rolled 43>>26460110I'm going to support the name repetition here, bitch said hearing his name would help.>>26460172Every Jock would be a nerd if they knew they could summon pussy using their mind for a few hours study.
>>26460110>>26460115>>26460123>52You crack open the book and begin reading.It's... not what you expected. Atrocitus certainly knows what's he talking about, but it's so buried deeply in melodramatic waffle, it makes your head hurt just thinking about it. Every three lines or so he insists on reminding the reader of his greatness and, well, atrociousness.Still. You learn a bit about Infernals in general. Of interest, he mentions the benefits to understanding an Infernal's name.Not only does knowing the name give you a way to summon them properly and consistently, knowing their Name can also be used to empower the Summon in a way. Infernals, he writes, are 'limited' by the material plane, and being by understanding their name and thus, their 'essence', it is easier to bring them into the material plane with a 'truer' form. Whatever that entails.Tired of Atrocitus's melodramatics, you turn your attention to Bowie. "Guess I should try and learn your name huh?"It grumbles at you slightly but grudgingly starts repeating it's name.After an hour of practice, he bids you farewell and leaves in a plume of smoke. You think you've made some headway on learning his name though.

>>26460329>>26460251>>26460269You greet him, but apologise. "Sorry. I'm heading to the library right now. I'm doing some independent research for my Summoning class." Lutharius nods at you in understanding."What was that like by the way? I heard someone fainted...""It wasn't that bad. I summoned an Imp. I think the Magister likes me." You leave out the part where she kept babbling about monstrosities and horrors. "What about yours?"He pauses. "He was... wearing a dress. Nobody asked him why though. Other then that, it was pretty good! Mostly we just covered magical theory." You nod at him, bid him farewell and head towards the Library after a brief consultation with a map.The Library is a large, pristine building, with a great pair of wooden double doors. Pushing them open, you are met by surprisingly cool air and stone architecture. You can see a small square-shaped ring of stone that seems to function as something of a desk. Piles of books and scrolls litter it, and a small bell with a note attached that says 'Ring for service.'You glance around. You can't hear or see anyone else here. There doesn't seem to be a map of the Library, but you can see countless stone shelves, most of them far larger than you, all bursting with books. Various wheeled ladders of differing sizes litter about, probably for the use of those who don't know how to levitate.>Ring the bell?>Call out?>Something else?
I think when we get some 1 on 1 time with Magister Pythianne we should ask her for help summoning a succubus. I really get the feeling she'd be cool with it since she's so enthusiastic about summoning in general.

Otherwise, if it's not in quotes I do the dialogue based on the intent. >>26460341 you're welcome to call him a nerd but I figured everyone else might disagree (also he'll probably cry)
Rolled 65>>26460444No, we should find another Mage who wants to do it, but either doubts their skills, or chose another path.Then we get help from her.
>>26460488Yeah like she can talk, calling people perverts. But there are non sexual reasons to be interested in Succubi, and it's not like we'd do anything with the Succubus with her in the room. If anything having her there is a good thing because she can be backup in case anything goes wrong.

>>26460611>>26460599>>26460573Having no intention of getting lost in what appears to be a very large library that is more likely than not enchanted in some way or otherwise magical, you put your book on the table, and begin reading. The Librarian, whoever they may be, should be here soon right?>12It takes you only a mere minute to get tired of Atrocitus's longwinded megalomania. You glance up to see if the Librarian is coming having heard nothing, but immediately recoil in shock. Mere inches from your own face, a figure you can only assume is the Librarian gazes at you with wide, unblinking green eyes."Yes. Hello." He says in a soft voice, staring at you from behind a pair of small rectangular glasses. He's wearing a set of grey robes that signify his position as a member of Faculty but he's not a Magister outright.>Response?
Rolled 18>>26460695Hello there, may I inquire as to if I can borrow a book on the topic of the planes of summoning?And one on creatures already summoned?
>>26460695>"...ah...hello. Could you direct me to books on summoning, specifically, on learning demonic names? I was reading this, but it's a bit...less than educating about demons, and too educating about the author, shall we say."We might have a faggot's name, but we can be a subtle and incisive faggot.Boy Named Sue and all that.

>>26460695"I'm interested in studying the practical application of summoning; spells, theory, safeguards, pit falls, and other relevant information. I'm also looking for anything about understanding the names of summons."
>>26460824It isn't a family name. The fluff in the first thread said we insisted to our parents we be called Hairy McTerrorcastle after it was discovered we had latent magical talent. It sounded cool when we were 8.It's a fine name, my good anon. I meant to imply that what doesn't kill us shall make us INFINITELY POWERFUL.
>>26460742>>26460758>>26460760"Hello, I was just wondering if I could borrow a book on the topic of the planes of summoning?" Before you can continue you feel something thrust against your chest and look down. He's holding a leatherbound tome and is pressing it against your chest. When did he...? You take the book from him, giving him a curious look as you do so. He's still staring at you with those wide unblinking eyes."Um. Thank you. Is there any others about creatures already summoned?" Another book is pressed against your chest. You're not even sure where's he getting them from. Or when he's even moving. If he's moving.You're starting to wonder if he's even human."... Thank you. And... ah, one on learning demonic names? I was reading this other," The third book presses against your chest and you aren't even surprised to realise you couldn't seem to notice when he actually moved.You adjust your grip on the current books. You can probably carry one more.>Fourth book?>Thank him and leave.>Something else?
>>26460877Obviously the fourth book should be"So You Want to Summon Some Tits: An Idiot's Guide to Safe Succubi Spellcasting"Otherwise known as Triple S.
Rolled 58>>26460877If you're using magic right now, I want a book that'll let me do that.

Rolled 39>>26460911Erh, I don't see the point, it's one of our major objectives, sure.But we're already decked out with everything basic, going into specialised fields right away will hurt our progress.
>>26460987Basics are important but successfully summoning a succubus feels like a good short to mid range goal.And who knows, the succubus might turn out very useful, especially if we can get a good rapport going.
>>26461050We need to start a brothel. Succubi brothel
>>26460919>>26460911>>26460958"I don't suppose there's a book teaching me how to do... that thing you're doing?"He stares at you silently. You take that as a no."Could I get a book on Succubi then?"Your actually ready to grab the book the moment it touches your chest this time. You are now loaded with four books.>Go back to your dorm?>See if there's a study room in the Library?>Something else?
Rolled 1>>26461100>"Could I get a book on Succubi then?"I hate you all
>>26461100Is there a courtyard? Or a quad or something? Maybe we could do some reading outdoors and some people watching. If not I say Library.
Rolled 46>>26461100Dorm, studying there is best.Goddamn it OP you host this in the dead of night and exceedingly early morning for me, BUT THIS IS THE ONLY QUEST I WANNA PLAY
>>26461100Ask him what the return policy is and if there's a study room in the library. I want to work in private. Best if no one sees the books we're looking at.Then thank this cool dude for his help.
>>26461100Study room in the Library. Roommates would only be a distraction at the moment.
>>26461132There are courtyards outside. Some people eat, read, generally hang out in their spare time there. You can also occasionally find some people practicing certain forms of Magic outside.
>>26461100>See if there's a study room in the Library?We should skim the books to see if they are actually what we need before leaving the library, may need the Librarian's help again.>>26461117You can't stop this. Succubi are great at Enchantment, compliments our skill set nicely.
Rolled 48>>26461117>Rolled 1>It's actually a 1d100God I hope this doesn't count against us somehow
>>26461133I enjoy making you suffer.I might make an effort to host earlier then.
Rolled 90>>26461160We don't know what anything is capable of in this universe, succubi could just be a glorified sex doll for all we know.
>>26461156Then I say we spend some time outside and study. My vote, anyway.
Rolled 10>>26461200Don't worry OP, I'm fine with not sleeping, my boss won't be though.
Rolled 65>>26461211The other summons seemed highly intelligent, even more intelligent than the average mage, though perhaps not as intelligent as the Magister.I have a feeling Succubi would be awesome. Roll to read that book first.
>>26461160>>26461141"So uh, what's the, Return policy like?""End of loan, books will be returned." That's... not very specific. "Do I just come back to give them to you, is there a drop off or...?""End of loan, books will be returned." He repeats quietly but confidently. You look down at your books. They'll probably disappear at the end of the loan term. "How long do I have them for?" You venture."One, Two, Three weeks." You think that was a choice. Maybe. He doesn't really make himself clear. You'll probably find out at some point if you don't figure it out now anyway."Okay uh... are there study rooms here?" He nods very slowly, still not moving his eyes from you. His wide... unblinking eyes. You get the feeling Pythianne would find him cute."Left.""To the left?""Left." Yeah. You're not getting anymore out of him.>Study outside?>Study inside the Library?>Study at your Dorm?>Something else?

>>26461268>Study inside the Library?LEFT
>>26461306>>26461346>>26461352You decide that you're going back to your dorms to study. For all you know, staying in the Library will make you turn out like the Librarian. It doesn't seem like that bad a fate but you have dreams. Dreams of money, wealth, and power. You are Hairy McTerrorcastle and damn it, you are not risking it!You thank him once more, a little awkwardly, and turn to leave. You realise you didn't specify a period of time, and turn around to do so only to find him gone.You can't even bring yourself to be surprised at that. You can, however, bring yourself to leave before this place starts to get to you.The trip to your dormitory is uneventful, but you pass Jaqul, who only nods at you and mentions he won't be back at the dorm until near curfew. Looks like you have it to yourself.You plop the four books down on your desk, next to the previous ones, and look over your haul.The first one you picked up, about planes - Planar Encyclopaedia by Scholar Devayth. You give it a brief skim, and find it very articulate but dry. It's a very complete guide covering planes and planar denizens but nothing that screams out 'I'M A SPELL'.The second, is named only the 'Book of Names' in black flowing script. It has no author. You flip through the yellowed pages. The first few pages talk about Infernal names, but the remaining pages seem to be composed entirely of just names. Names and portraits. The portraits all seem to be of horrifying and increasingly fiendish Infernal denizens.The third book is titled 'Treatise on Summons', by 'Lanius'. It's concise, and details several experiments into the nature of Summoning. It touches upon Magic Circles and you pick up on something interesting 'Astral Projection'. Might be worth looking into.>cont.
>>26461527The last book, 'Incubi, Succubi, Omnibi' talks in depth about, well, the titular Daemons. It goes into vast detail about the different ones the author summoned (who remains nameless). It classifies them by what they ask for in payment (but does mention this is not an accepted practice - or at least, wasn't at the time).The author seems to know an awful lot about Incubi, Succubi and Omnibi.>Read a book?

Rolled 31>>26461555Hrm, hard choice.Lets go with the sex demons for now.
Rolled 98>>26461555Lets see what we're exactly dealing with, lets look at all the daemons
Rolled 30>>26461555Read the succubi book, focusing on the succubi portions
>>26461555>I'm going to nip out and grab a bite to eat. Feel free to take this time to debate the merits of the books.
>>26461629WELP, I wasn't much for it, but now you say it....
Rolled 100>>26461555>The third book is titled 'Treatise on Summons', by 'Lanius'. It's concise, and details several experiments into the nature of Summoning. It touches upon Magic Circles and you pick up on something interesting 'Astral Projection'. Might be worth looking into.Sounds by far the most practical and easiest to read. We can work on target demons once we have a firmer grasp of summoning in general. The books aren't going anywhere, and even if they do, they'll end up back at the library one way or another.
Rolled 67>>26461555>Read a book? (1d100)The one about names. I wanna be able to call on Bowie.
>>26461681We are now the master of Astral Projection and the basics of magic circles.
>>26461681Fucking thank you. I'm sick of these retards screaming for succubi.
Rolled 54come on guys. Treatise on SUmmons is best for now.
Rolled 85>>26461555third book
>>26461681Well shit, I guess we're covering the basics first.
Rolled 78>>26461681thank god the anti-succubus! fuck yeah.
Rolled 21>>26461688We should just spam read books all night.
>>26461703Do you have a better idea for a mid-term goal?
>>26461720>all nightSleep is important for information retention. Let's not be silly.
>>26461681Third book it is! But seriously, finding out about the exact nature of summoning could end up being very important in the long run with all this mention of payments.
Rolled 13>>26461732I meant until time to sleep.
>>26461729How about something that hasn't been implied to only be summoned by perverts and teenagers?
Rolled 24>>26461741Idea, let's say we just divide the time we have left before bed time evenly between the three books and find out their general content. After that, we make a study schedule based on what we want to dedicate the most time too.
Rolled 65>>26461789Besides whoring them out for money? They probably have other powers. Also, bragging rights for being able to summon them.Seriously though, "Pay me, and I'll summon up a man/woman of unimaginable beauty and sexual skill for you to fuck. Upfront payment.
>>26461729>>26461703Honestly, we'll have a better idea for a mid-term goal if something happens.For now, we're driving the plot. Being able to summon and reliably control a succubus is in fact a good goal. Succubus tend to be low-to-mid powerful, both with charms and demonic magic. Maintaining self-control with one in the room is a good bar to leap.That said, we don't know anything about succubi in this setting. Something to look into. Hey, we've got the book right there, how convenient.If the plot comes and bites us with a quest hook, we can change tact and work on whatever is relevant, be that a summon that can support allies or something more directly violent. While we're in charge of developments, rather than reacting, I say full steam ahead with the succubus.Let's face it, we're Hairy McTerrorcastle and by god we do what we want. And what we want is a pair of extraplanar tits with which to start a sex ring.>succubi encourages more students into the summoning school of magic>inadvertently save the magister's school while making ourselves some sweet cashAll part of the plan.
>>26461822Hypno Jew, if that were the case, it would have been done before this.Obviously something is wrong with them, or summoning them is actually really hard.At any rate, we will do it eventually, but skipping everything in favour for it is a bad idea.
>>26461822For that to work we first have to bind a Succubus to our will, no easy feat I might add. We are a teenage boy in the peak of hormones, we are an easy target for Succubi they would crush us. >>26461681Read the 'Treatise on Summons.
Rolled 87>>26461681this is the best idea
Rolled 91>>26461860>>26461864I never said we should dive in headfirst. Of course we need to study up about what they are, what the catch is, and if screwing them is dangerous and whatnot. Besides, summoning is clearly a dying art and succubi are maligned therefore there is a market to be filled. Also, there's clearly only a few hundred fully trained mages or less, so please.I'm making a goal. We'll figure out if there's pitfalls on the way, but no need to shoot something down when you don't even know where the ammo is yet.
Rolled 81>>26461902I agree actually. We're probably like... ten quests away from succubus summoning anyways.
>>26461852>we don't know anything about succubi in this settingNope. We know that they're low level things. Very low level. When we asked the magister about them, she said that it's mainly teenagers summoning them. And she also didn't give any examples of things they're good for.People who are so dead set on succubi want them because sex demons. That's it. Virtually any of the other things our teacher talked about would make a better goal. Or just being able to summon Bowie effectively. But no. Succubi.
Rolled 34>>26461957You're assuming a lot, but that is a good point. Still, that doesn't mean we can't figure out something better for them.
>>26461923This. I get the feeling the anti-succubus camp just doesn't want to turn things into an ERP session which is understandable, but overly cautious. Especially when our head teacher is described as being stacked and clearly nothing bad came of it.
>>26461957>But yes, people have summoned those before. Most magi in history weren't particularly picky about where they could draw power from. I think you're extrapolating too heavily. Sounds like they could be useful.If you're right, and they are easy to summon, then they'd make better practice because we aren't very strong yet.Either way, I'm the anon that rolled that 100 for the third book. I'm totally on board for getting to know Bowie and broadening our knowledge base before going for succubi. It's called a goal because it's something to work toward, not something to do immediately without regard for everything else. But barring any other quests, succubi sex ring, because why the fuck not? And along the way we become bros with Bowie and learn something more practical like a elemental or a gratuitously violent demon.
>>26461957Succubi are still the most interesting thing to summon at the moment and they fit Hairy's character. Bowie's cool and all but he's too cryptic, which is the opposite of what a Succubus would be.
Rolled 75>>26462018Its just the entire feel of our focus on it. It feels fetishy as all hell, and right now I'd prefer to focus on getting actually powerfull
Rolled 83>>26462108We're focusing on getting powerful. I'm only pushing for it because summoning is clearly heavily regulated and I think some influence would be useful. It's more of an "en route" goal to power. We're going to learn a lot just by figuring out how to safely control them anyways, which is good practice for controlling REALLY powerful outsiders.
>I am back. Unless my reading comprehension fails me, we are reading the third book? With a critical 100, very nice.
Rolled 95>>26462153Yeah, we're reading the third book.
Rolled 44>>26462148I think we just shouldn't skip all the basics in favor of succubus sex ring.
>>26462108Seriously, if you have a more interesting idea than summoning succubi, say it. "Getting stronger" is too vague to really pique anyone's interest since that's basically a given.
Rolled 54>>26462228As I've said, I've never said nor implied that we do so. In fact, I've frequently advocated getting book learning for power. Just because you tl;dr things doesn't rewrite intent.
>>26462244Well, first of all is learning how to learn names, because otherwise if we come across something like a arch succubi by accident and can't learn her name, it's very low in chances to ever summon them again.Next would be learning what plane we want to specialise in, which is why we got the first and second book.
Rolled 22>>26462299We've already established we aren't skipping steps, and it's already been established that we're going to attempt to gain the ability to learn names. Seriously, could you try bringing something new to the table?
>>26462330Excuse me dear sir, but was I responding to your argument with the other idiot?No I was not, I was making a small point to the man I linked my post to, not yours.
>>26462299On that note, I'm in favor of specializing in the Celestial and Demonic planes. Elementals are boring. Who wants a big candle or a rock golem when you can have a plague demon or metatron?The "Entropic" plane also sounds rather fascinating...the magister seemed to be interested in it for her personal research. I can't imagine what kind of summons it holds, though, seems rather vague as a category.
Rolled 45>>26462369I care not.
>>26462153>100You place 'Treatise on Summons' on the desk and open it.

>>26462461I think we should Eat then hit the Planar Encyclopaedia. The Planar Encyclopaedia would be a good book to read cause I have a feeling we don't know all the flavor to the summons in this setting and reading the Encyclocpedia would give us a better understanding on how to organize our quest for power and prestige as a Summoner.

Rolled 10>>26462824So would I, to be honest. I was shouting it out because I wanted to avoid it. :P
>>26462881He's this quest's token obnoxious faggot. Just learn to live with it.
>>26462738Succubi/Incubi/Omnibi (Infernae Femina/Masculus/Semimas)A close relative of Devils, the Succubi and their ilk can be identified by their price. They possess a different category to ordinary Devil's due to their nature - Devil's seek what they want for alien reasons, but Succubi replenish their power via 'feeding'. Some feed on emotions, others on bodily fluids. Others drink from life directly.Archdevils/Archdaemons (Infernae Diabolus/Militis Superior)These powerful figures ascend from the ranks of ordinary Devils and Daemons when they have accumulated enough power. Rarely summoned unless sought out personally, they no longer take much interest in the Mortal world. Tend to command large hosts of their brethren, and jostle with each other for power.Fiends (Infernae Monstrous)Fiends are monstrous creatures, subsisting on slaughter and bloodshed. Like Daemons, they too were used as tools in Wars, but to bind a Fiend is almost impossible, their raging minds living only to kill and rend.Hounds (Infernae Bestis)Varying in size and power, 'Hounds' are a catch all term for the various infernal animals.Shadow (Infernae Umbrus)Shadows and other Infernal Denizens, whilst by no means enemies, are not 'allies' by any stretch of the word. Shadows tend to be silent and speak only when asked to once summoned. They are frequently used as Spies.
>>26462940The Infernal PlaneThe Infernal Plane is rarely travelled to, for even as an Astral Projection it is a place of great discomfort. The air is filled with unholy screaming, and sears with maddening heat. Whilst semblances of Civilization can be discerned as existing based on the words of the Denizens themselves, it is organised in a way that makes no sense to mortal minds.>Actions?
>>26462940Can we get a Succubus that feeds on how CUHRAZY McTerrorcastle is? Like it feeds on swagger and an inflated sense of self-importance?
Rolled 27>>26462940How much time do we have left before bed?
Rolled 51>>26462980Roll to read the book on Succubi, focusing on the Succubi section, and looking for one that feeds on an inflated sense of self-importance.
Rolled 94>>26462980>Actions?Astral project to the Entropic plane
>>26462940Primary Long-Term Goal:Work with Bowie until we're awesome and he's an Imp Lord. Assist him in taking over a slice of the Demonic Plane. Rule the multiverse as father and son.In other news...Daemons are our main combat summon. Imps are good for magic. Devils and Succubi are a bit grab bag, but could be useful - same for Hounds. Fiends make good suicide bombers to ruin an enemy's day. Shadows for spying and learning the weaknesses of our enemies so that we may tear their world from them piece by piece before we finally kill them.Yes....YES
>>26462998>It is currently 7pm. Curfew is at 10.
>>26463004>>26463000>>26462998>>26462983Guys, guys, guys. Dinner.
Rolled 84>>26462980Well, read the last book, I guess because why not?
Rolled 84>>26462980So all of that was only one plane?Crikey, also shouldn't we gain something from that?A bonus to name obtaining or summoning in general?Anyway, lets have a read up of the fourth book
>>26463034Fuck dinner, it's time for ADVENTURE!
>>26463034>>26463004>94Well...I guess we can visit the entropic plane first, then get food.
>>26463036I'll give you a +5 to Summoning Infernals (or projecting to that Plane) but the information itself is less magic-related, more factual and documentary-like.
Rolled 8>>26463004WELP, BATTON DOWN THE HATCHES, CAUSE WE VISTING CTHULU MAGES ON MARS
Rolled 37>>26463063+5 to learning names of infernal plane summons, it's a documentary on them, and how they act after all.
>>26463063Will you post an updated version of >>26458201 soonish or at the end of the thread?
Rolled 10>>26463035I agree. Let's read the last book. Here's my roll.
>>26463095Yes.>>26463091That sounds suitable. Consider it done.>>26463004>>26463034>>26463036>You appear torn between eating, reading about Hot Bitches, and Astral Projection.
>>26463183Eating is boring. Just snag another sandwich before we go on an adventure if we're really that hungry.
>>26463183He rolled a 94 for astral projection, the gods will it.
Rolled 100>>26463183lets go to the entropic realms!
>>26463183astral projection, use that 94Hey...maybe we'll run into the magister, who also happens to be projecting herself there.inb4 we stumble across her being penetrated by a tentacle monster and she plays it off as "research"
Rolled 6>>26463183ASSSSTRAL PROJECTIONLETS VISIT AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON, or something.
Rolled 80>>26463241holy shit I just critted. PRAISE BE TO XOM!
Rolled 10>>26463242No good will come from this. I say this now, and I think we should read the next book instead.
>>26463241Time to accidentally find the professor wearing her birthday suit to a tentacle party!
>>26463241Shit man, nat100, better learn some awesome shit while we're there.
>>26463241Oh anon. I love you.
Rolled 277>>26463241>>26463004>>26463242>You appear to be flying off the rails! Would you like some help with that?You settle down for a bit of Astral Projection. Magister Pythianne expressed an interest in the Entropic Plane, and deciding to throw all common sense and self-preservation to the wind, you decide to pop in and say hello. After all, if Magister Pythianne likes it, it can't be that bad can it?You breathe in and out, relaxing yourself as you began repeating the chant in your head, focusing your Magic. It's a little disconcerting at first, feeling like your falling but slowly. At times it feels like you punch through some very thin paper. At some point however, the falling stops.You open yours eyes. The world is black and white. You look down at yourself - you're naked. Clothes are apparently not a part of Astral Projection. Fair enough, you suppose. It's just the mind after all.You look around. The ground reaches up to the sky like claws but when you look up, all you see are clouds. They swirl and dance slowly, a riveting ballroom waltz. It's silent. All you can hear is the sound of your soft breathing, and your steady heartbeat.The ground beneath your feet is solid, and feels like dirt. It is a pitch black, however, and you can't define it at all. You look around to maybe see something. Anything.A tree. In the distance. It seems so far away, but you can make it out clear as day. It's decaying branches are devoid of leaves but there's a single fruit hanging from the branches. You think it's a fruit. You can't tell.>Actions?
Rolled 49>>26463340Poke the fruit
Rolled 28>>26463340move towards the fruit pick it eat it!
Rolled 42>>26463340>277/1000Something tells me that's not good.Uh, examine the fruit.
Rolled 40>>26463340EAT THE FRUITwe must eat the demon world mushrooms of trippyness
Rolled 100BITCH, I'M HUNGRY FOR FRUIT
Rolled 46>>26463340lets eat the fruit
>>26463409fucking hard core
>>26463409>inb4 it's an alien beehive
>>26463409Holy shit, this character is just balls to the wall all the time.We should have eaten before projecting.
>>26463409We probably should have eaten dinner. That fruit looks good, though.
>>26463409Hairy McTerrorcastle, how do you even walk around with balls this fucking huge?
>>26463409>>26463374>>26463405>Brakes? What are those?You head towards the tree. You're not sure how long it takes you - time in different Planes passes differently to the Material Plane but you aren't even sure how far you've moved. You think you're closer. Are you closer? You can almost touch it...You reach out with a hand, grasping lightly at it. It's... not anything you've really seen. It's like a solid orb of light, attached very lightly to the tree. It only takes a small tug to pull it from the tree.It feels... it feels solid. Not cold. Not warm. It's just... there. You contemplate eating it. Can you even eat whilst projecting? You're not sure. But hey! What could go wrong right?You bring it to your lips and attempt to bite it. Your teeth scythe through it easily, soft and pliable. It feels... smooth. It tastes...Loud. You hear it in your eyes a song. It sounds... like a lullaby? You frown, looking down at the 'fruit'. It's a pitch black inside, and the 'juice' oozes from it, thick and viscous. The song plays for a little in your head before stopping.You lick the juice experimentally. A few more notes play in your head.Huuuuh.>Actions?
>>26463483>ears not eyes - that is a typo, not an affect of the Entropic Plane.
Rolled 97>>26463483Eat all of it to gain the fruit's power.
>>26463483munch on it and walk around
Rolled 18>>26463483Continue eating it, and hum the tune out loud whilst doing so?
Rolled 39>>26463483WELL IM STILL HUNGRYEAT THE SHIT OUT OF IT
>>26463483Eat while looking around, the background music is a nice side effect.
Rolled 91>>26463509This.AND OH SHIT THE FRUIT SONG IS A DAEMON SUMMON
Rolled 66>>26463509>>26463529this is fucking amazing
>>26463509>>26463518>>26463519Shrugging, you begin to munch on the rest of the 'fruit'. Looking around, you can see nothing immediately that springs to mind of interest. There doesn't seem to be any other strange musical fruit trees in your sight. The clouds continue their strange dance.Looking at the tree it seems very much gnarled. It, unlike everything else, is in shades of grey and in places a stark bright white. It's branches droop down, ending in thin, brittle fingers.The music seems familiar somehow.>Actions?>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCKIUfvP96E (The lullaby)
Rolled 195>>26463597>fuck how many times am I going to do that before I fucking learn
Rolled 60>>26463597Press ourself into the trunk in an effort to merge with the tree.
Rolled 83>>26463597Try to remember where we hear it before?
Rolled 59>>26463597>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCKIUfvP96EI am the dark, that feeds your fearsI am the truth, that adds wretched yearsI'm the cold wind, that cuts your heartI am the pain, that tears you apartI am the beast, and now I'm you
Rolled 61>>26463597"Sup tree, that's some tasty fruit there, almost melodic"
Rolled 98>>26463597Dance to the music. We must please the clouds.
Rolled 44>>26463597Try to discern a 'feel' from that song. I wanna summon the tree of darkness when we get out of here.
Rolled 31Ask aloud "Where are Magister Pythianne and her tentacle friends?"
Rolled 49>>26463642holy fucking shit.
Rolled 98>>26463642THE DICE RAILROAD US TO VICTORY, AND THEY DEMAND OUR DANCE
Rolled 86>>26463689>>26463642sweet mother of god.
Rolled 794>>26463689>>26463642>>26463680You dance. Why the hell not? Strange creepy music is playing in your head when you bite into a ball of light that oozes black viscous liquid.You learned to waltz in your previous years - the Academy has an annual dance and you managed to get a date each year. You move smoothly and gracefully, almost imagining a partner in your arms.Your name is Hairy McTerrorcastle, and you are naked in the Entropic Plane, dancing a waltz to a strange tune in your head.You aren't sure for how long you were dancing, but at some point the music ends and you decide the dance must end as well. You give a mock bow to anything that might have been watching - the clouds, the ground, the trees.Trees. There's another tree. It's... new. It, like the other, is old, worn, and droops to the ground. It does not have any strange orbs of light though.No, nothing of the sort. It has a man, swinging from his ankle on a rope attached to the highest branch though.>Actions?
Rolled 76>>26463758>Rolled 794Now we're getting somewhere.Ask him how to get really good at summoning as fast as possible.
Rolled 88>>26463758"Hello. Were you a fool once?"
Rolled 91>>26463758"Hello! Might I inquire as to why you're hanging from this tree?"If he doesn't answer, eat him too.I was tempted to just put >rape.
Rolled 45>>26463758"Hello good sir, are you perhaps a native of this plane?"
Rolled 38>>26463798this pleaseexcept don't eat him
Rolled 88>>26463798lets go with this, but like >>26463816 said, no munchings and crunchings.
>>26463788>>26463798>>26463806"Hello." The moment you say hello, his eye snaps to you. 'Eye', because you now realise the other one is pitch black. Or missing. He's wearing white robes... or at least, something like them. His clothes, however, show no sign of obeying gravity."Oh̶ m͜y̵.͘ My, my, m͞y̕,̵ my͘.͏"You frown slightly. You... aren't too sure what he just said. You think you have an idea though."Are you a native of this plane? And if it's not too much bother, could I ask why you're hanging from this tree?""H̵a͞ǹg͝i͡n̸g?̵ ̷W̧h̀at̛ ̀h͢a̶ng͜s g͟oes͠ ͡d͟o̷wn but we͏ go ùp͞.̛ ͝Do ̴y͟ou ̧ál͠w̧a͞ys҉ st̶a͝n̨d҉ u̵po͝n͞ t҉h̸e ͞śk͝y s͏o?͠"You're fairly sure he just said you were standing on the sky. But...You're falling. Almost as if on command, you plummet towards the 'clouds', and land in soft, forgiving... sand. The Hanging Man dangles above you laughing uproariously in a strange, almost discordant voice.>Actions?
Rolled 3>>26463887"Well, I best be going now, hangman"
Rolled 36>>26463887"I like you hanging tree guy." And then laugh with him.
Rolled 95>>26463887>Ask him how to get really good at summoning as fast as possible.
>>26463887"seams not, so whats around here who are you?
Disregard the >accidental greentext
Rolled 25>>26463887Play along. "Not so, but they do say we all stand beneath the same sky is it not?."
Rolled 37>>26463912>>26463944Something along the lines of this.
Rolled 57I don't like hanging guy. Pinata time.
>>26463944>>26463913>>26463915"Not so, but they do say we all stand beneath same sky is it not?" You brush yourself off slightly. The cloud-sand-something is a tad rough but very fine and smooth, and shifts and changes to winds you cannot feel or hear. He(It?) laughs again."Do you mind if I ask you who you are?""I̕t̷͡ w͠a͘n͟t̶̵s ́a͘͠͠ ̡̡n̸a҉̕͞m͢e!̡̡ Á̵s̵̢ t̵̢ḩ̴̷ơ͡ug͏h ̸͠I͏ c͡oưl͘d ͘͜g̕i͘͝v̨e̢̨ ҉̵i̡̨̕t̶ ̀̕on҉̴e͠ ̨i̸̸̢t̡ ̧́͢c͡o̶u̴̵͟ļ̕̕d̷͏͟ ͝heą̸̀r͜͏.͟͝.B̢͝u͡t̷͢͠ ̴̢i̵̡͜f̶̧ ͘͠ì̸t̢ s̕͟͞e͜͠e̢͘k̶s͏ ͏̡t͏́o͏ c̵̸͡a̸ll͏ ͏̷m̢e͘͡ ҉͘͘ń̛a҉m̀è҉s t̨h͞҉e̷҉n ́I̸'̨̢̛l͜l ͜b̴é̢ v̡͜͡eŗ͜͡y҉̵ ̶̨c̸͠r̵o̕҉̷s̡͘͟s ͜i͘n̵͜d͝é̸e̷̢d̸̡!̸"He laughs again, swaying slightly on his rope."...

Rolled 84>>26463993Say in an absolutely serious manner:"How do I learn to Stand?"
