Welcome back to Desert Island Maid QuestYou have been marooned on an Island by forces beyond your understanding. You have killed minotaurs, turned a vampire into your service and summoned the spirits of the dead to take down an evil moth demon. Now you have to settle a cat fight between your two maids.Character sheets and mapshttp://imgur.com/Je7YoLJ,MzkZygY,BuFMxAW,VpRhk5Y,8vK8eYK,D6Wnkrh,fr5jbCXPrevious ThreadsPart 1: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/26863512/Part 2: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/26882709/Part 3: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/26920770/Part 4: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/26963732/Part 5: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/27045808/Part 6: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/27070757/Part 7: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/27108553/Part 8: http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/27165918/
When we last left off...Evelin blushes, well, she would if she wasn't a walking undead horror. "Now now, don't be so thoughtless when you got a gal's heart in your hands. That heart. It's mine. You see, when I told you I didn't last long hiding in this mansion, I meant the part about not lasting. Some of Beth's monsters...got to me. I was in really rough shape. It was either let them finish the job and die horribly, or join in Beth's service. I didn't want to die, so she tore out my heart and fed me some of her blood. After a few hours I awoke in that coffin and left the mansion. Couldn't return because of her magic and I spent the next month hunting down every monster of her's that hurt me. She thought it was amusing. A sort of training. Well after that I simply roamed the island and followed her orders when she called. I really couldn't refuse. I never got one of Beth's victims to taste my blood. When you did I got enough of a jolt to shake off some of her power. Now with my heart free the rest is broken. No doubt she alerted that moth bitch to us coming here. She'll be pissed now that she lost one of her only good lackeys. Now, if you don't mind, can I have that back?" She extends her hand towards you, but not grabbing the heart. Tracy coughs having been silent since refusing to leave the basement. "I think you should keep that for yourself. No offense Evelin, but you tried to drink me earlier. How can we just up and trust you?" Evelin glares at Tracy. "How dare you, that heart is mine and I deserve to have it returned to me. I wouldn't cut off one of your tails and wear it as a belt now would I. The heart is mine, give it to me...pretty please?"Tracy growls and knocks Evelin's hand away. Evelin hisses and rises from the floor, talons extending. "Don't think because we fought together twice means we're on friendly terms, DOG." Tracy's hands wreathe in blue flame ans she flattens her ears and snarls." Once a minion always a minion."
This is a critical event! Evelin and Tracy are at each others throats. How you handle this situation will have far reaching consequences.Plan your actions wisely chosen one.
>>27186867Interpose ourselves between the two. "Tracy has a point that trust is hard to come by, but we're not going to get anywhere good if can't trust each other. You both saw what happened to Desiree and the Maids. Is that what you want, to be so consumed by mistrust that you end up destroying any chance for happiness?"
>>27186867Do we have that rose on us? If do, can they both hold it at the same time to give each a bit of calming healing?
>>27186955You put yourself between the two, the heat from Tracy's fire licking at your shoulder and Evelin's aura pulling at the other. "Is this how you two want to live. Consumed by hate and mistrust? You saw what it did to Desiree. Can't either of you show a bit of trust."Tracy growls, the hair on her tails prickling. "This isn't about hate or trust. She was a minion of Beth this afternoon. You have her heart, how could you just blindly trust this bitch. We trusted Desiree on her word and she almost drank us. I don't feel like repeating that. Keep the heart for now."Evelin hisses back, waving her claws about as she talks. You have to duck a bit. " I have waited years to get this back. To be free of that whore Beth. What have you lost to her? A man? Your pretty face? You have no comprehension of the suffering I endured. That. Is. My. Heart. Now honey dear, would you give your darling girl her necklace?"They show no signs of backing down.>>27187054You have the rose, but you would have to convince them both to back down and hold it. (Cunning or Affection roll depending on how you propose it)
>>27187054you could also physically force them to grab it (athletics) or throw it up and hope they grab it (luck), etc. It all depends how you want to play it!You will be rolling the highest of 2+your stat 1d100s against the lowest of their stat 1d100s
>>27187307Throwing it seems like a terrible idea. I'd go with affection, but i can't think what to say
>>27187247Getting them to touch the Rose first to further calm them down seems like a good idea. "Alright, I see both of your points. Now, please, see my side of things. Here, both of you, I want you to touch this Rose. Even if you have trouble trusting each other, trust me."
Rolled 51, 47, 96 + 25 = 219>>27187536"Alright, I see both of your points. Now, please, see my side of things. Here, both of you, I want you to touch this Rose. Even if you have trouble trusting each other, trust me."You pull the Violet rose out of your pocket and hold it between the two,Rolling on affection. Ill take the first 4 linked 1d100sTracy's disposition towards you gives her a -25 on her lowest roll.Evelin's disposition is weaker, only giving you a -10 on her lowest.Tracy gets 3 rolls, Evelin gets 2Tracy's roll is above.Evelin's below.
Rolled 75, 35 + 10 = 120Evelin's roll
Rolled 8>>27187615Oh man, this is gonna be bad isn't it.
Rolled 52, 52 + 10 = 114>>27187615>>27187624Tracy's number is 22Evelins number is 25
Rolled 43>>27187615Come on, you're the Chosen One!
Rolled 98>>27187615One more roll!
>>27187694>>27187674You feel a little like a jackass holding a rose in one hand, and the encased human heart in the other, but you're certain this will work. After a bit of prodding with a sideways glance at Tracy, she relents. Her ears lift, the fire about her hands dies away and she grasps the rose. "I'll do anything for you master~~~" she sighs, giving you a little wink but devolving into a sigh as the power of the rose calms her. Her tails flick about in an almost teasing manner and she slowly starts to turn towards you. "Oh no you don't. I'll hold your wonderful rose two my sweet man." Evelin coos. Her claws withdraw and she quickly grabs the bottom of the stem. The moment her hand closes her eyes seemingly glaze over. They both slowly kneel down and sit on the ground, never letting go of the rose. Despite the power of the rose, they are still intent on fighting however. "Master gave the rose to me first you dirty little bat. He loves me. I saw him first. You just want to steal him away for yourself..." Tracy babbles. Evelin tries to slap Tracy but her hand weakly brushes along her cheek. "He drank my blood. We are bonded and all I want is my heart back. With it I can be free to love master..." It's almost like the two are drunk or in a trance. It seems like you can actually engage in a dialogue now.The rose hasn't completely calmed either of them,but they are both much much more relaxed and in a better place.Well Chosen One, time to play peacemaker!
>>27187930Work our way between them gently and wrap an arm around both of them.Tell them how truly blessed to have met both of them. Certainly we would have died a good while back without either of them atthe our side
>>27187930"Tracy, Evelin, I don't want you two to fight over me. I care for both of you. Without you, Tracy, I would have been fodder for Beth on the first day. And Evelin, I feel for your predicament, I really do. "But Tracy, think about what's happened. Evelin's attack on you was when she was under Beth's control. And it makes no sense for her to still be a minion of Beth, not after killing another of her lackeys in order to get the key we needed. To keep harping on something she did while under Beth's control is too much. "And Evelin, you have to stop baiting Tracy all the time. How do you expect her to stop looking at you as an enemy if you do nothing but insult her and try to keep me exclusively for yourself?"
>>27188107You kneel down on the cold stone floor inbetween the two maids. They are currently weakly slapping at each other, barely mustering the energy to lift their wrists. You gently take both of their hands and push them down. You wrap your arms around the two maids and pull them close, taking care not to knock the rose away just yet. You make a point to lock eyes with them both and you open up. "Tracy, Evelin, right now isn't the time for fighting. If we had not worked together we would be dead. Drank by a moth demon or ripped apart by shadows. Tracy you would still be hiding in that little beach house and Evelin you would still be a slave to Beth. Without either of you I would just be another notch in Beth's belt. I am so lucky to have you both. There must be some way we can work this out. Evelin, we want to trust you but we have seen how Beth operates. Is there a way you can assure us that this is your heart? And Tracy, can you trust Evelin if she proves it?"Tracy nods her head. "I'll follow you Master. I've trusted you this far...you haven't let me down yet...." Her tails curl around both you and Evelin in a show of good faith. Evelin begins to tear up, a small drop of blood runs down her cheek. "Please master...don't...don't be scared..." Her free hand, shaking, reaches up to the neckline of her dress. She pulls it down to reveal piece of metal nailed to her chest. She pulls the metal away with a grunt and reveals a gaping hole over her left breast. The cracked ribs sit like jagged teeth over the wound and ragged bloody flesh hangs over a pulsing lung. Thick black blood slowly oozes from the wound. Tracy gasps, here eyes wide. Evelin doesn't make eye contact. "Do you believe me now?"How do you respond?
Slow night bump
>>27188483Look to Tracy. "I believe her. Though what will happen when you get your heart, Evelin?"
>>27188483"Of course I believe you. I haven't stopped believing you since the bonding.So, how do we get this back in there safely."
>I miss a large amount of the quest
>>27188762Well, maybe not much...Seconding.
>>27188801You come at a good place time then. About to resolve one of the charecter's side quests! >>27188657Tracy is still staring dumbfounded at the gaping wound in Evelin's chest, but nods. You ask Evelin how you can give it back to her and what will happen. Evelin takes a deep breath. It is somewhat disconcerting to see the lung in her chest swell in time with her breathing. "When you give me my heart...willingly... I will be free...I can replace it myself...No more Beth." You turn the heart shaped locket over and over, examining the runes as they swirl over the glass and are startled to see the heart give a slight twitch.Do you give Evelin the heart?
>>27188875Yes, give her the heart.
You first take the rose from the two maids, certain that the conflict has passed. As you take the rose the haze over the two of them seems to lift, but the anger is gone. Tracy looks like she is on the verge of either tearing up or throwing up, the grisly wound on Evelin's chest being quite the shock. You take Evelin's hands and look her deep in the eyes. "Evelin, I know we didn't start out on the best of terms, but we are all in this against Beth. I can't undo what happened, but maybe with this you can start to rebuild. This is your heart, and it belongs to you." You move to place the amulet in Evelin's hand but it tries to resist, like forcing two magnets against each other. But the resistance is not strong and you push the glass shell into her cupped palm. The second the glass touches her blanched skin the it cracks and shatters. The blood gushes from the broken vessel and the chain falls away. The heart begins to beat in earnest. The tenderness of this moment does not blot out the morbidness of the tableau. Evelin takes the heart and presses it into the hole on her chest. The tissue and vessels begin to regrow and knit the organ back into place. Skin and muscle stretch over the wound and in moments the wound is healed. A surge of color flashes over her skin, but quickly retreats. Evelin looks at her hands and leaps into the ear, giggling wildly to cries of "I'm Free! I'm Free!!" She is overjoyed and is flying laps about the room. She settles next to you and Tracy and embraces you both. "Thank you! Thank you! I'm free!" She pauses. "I'm...free" She slowly breaks down into tears. "I'm free..." You and Tracy both embrace the crying vampire. The stress of the mansion romp ebbing away. Tracy sniffles a bit as well. The group of you sit in the cool dark basement for a while and hold each other.Evelin is free and is now one of the maids of the house.Evelin's disposition to you has been raised to devoted.+25 XP for completing her loyalty mission.What do we do now?
>>27189163Well isn't it obvious?We go home and give that Mystery Toliet a spin!
>>27189163Secure our loot and figure out how to sneak past the rock elemental.Then >>27189207I honestly wonder what Yuriko has done with the bungalow. It'll be an interesting tour, to say the least.
>>27189207I should point out loot and xp.XP: 111Loot: 30 Flamable Moth Scales, 1 Set of materials for Yuriko upgrade, Key to the mansion basement, 3 sets of skeletal remains, 1 exoskeleton armPool unexplored
>>27189264Should we do the pool?We wouldn't have to come back here.
>>27189264Ah right...the poolThe completionist in me says we have to see the pool...I hate missing things unnecessarily
>>27189281We would need some way to drain the pool.Or come back with Yuriko to freeze it.
>>27189319If I thought she could do it, I would say have Tracy Fox Fire the water outWould certainly fry whatever might be in the water
>>27189347Tracy is currently out of mana. If you want her to try it you will have to attend to that issue first.
>>27189347That's going to require a lot of magic and, if memory serves, she is out or near out.We could just try wading in ourselves. Do come crocodile hunter shit. Eh, we'll figure it out once we get a good description of the pool room.
>>27189347We should probably take along a dozen of the fire scales when we go to check out the pool.We can crack the pool lining using the Iron Man gauntlet we found.
>>27189409>we'll figure it out once we get a good description of the pool room.We know from Evelin's description of the Pool that we can drain it, if we can crack the lining. And we just happen to have an exo-arm with a plasma cannon built in.
>>27189403Maybe attend to that first?We could all use a bit of rest before tackling the Pool at any rate.
>>27189432Fair enough plan.On a slightly related subject, we ought to explore some of the wrecks around the island sometime. Island Maid Quest: scuba edition
>>27189445>be GM w/ adv. scuba cert and 10 GB photography folder>players suggest scuba diving.I love you guys
>>27189403I remember it being mentioned that emotions mattered more to recharging Tracy; is that right?Do we just need to cuddle with her and Evelin to recharge Tracy, and let Evelin bite our shoulder?
I need an agreed upon plan of action about how you are going to attack the pool if you choose to do so.
>>27189518Hey, all I wanted was a beach episode. 100% ulterior motives. If you know how to make that awesome, then that's great.
>>27189530Go check out the pool. First to see if there is a water release (like it will be that convient, am I right guys?). if not, IRON MAN a hole in the pool
>>27189527Tracy recharges MP with strong emotions. The more "intense" the better. Evelin restores based on drinking blood. Human male blood is the best to drink. Yuriko just recharges because she's from the future. She doesn't have to explain shit.
>>27189530Ok, here's a plan:1. Recharge Tracy and Evelin, while resting a little.2. Open the door to the Pool, get a look at it.3. If possible, use Exoskeletal Arm to punch the Pool's lining to drain it (if it's an above-ground pool), otherwise, use a plasma bolt to crack the lining and drain it.
>>27189566Agreed. We hoped for a sledgehammer and I guess we got something better.
>>27189573Oh yes we need to recharge them if possible. Also, can we upgrade Tracy's mana before recharging?
>>27189566I suggest we get some recharging first; remember, we're still hurting from the fight against Desiree.And we should bring like a half-dozen of those Fire Scales, just in case we need something to burn.
>>27189594What do you want to raise it to? I'll max it out regardless Recharge incoming.
>>27189626before I decide to commit or not, I can't recall if Tracy has a heal skill or if she only has fox fire and barrier
>>2718962630?That'll be 30XP.Maybe also Tracy's HP, since she's our front-line fighter.So another 30XP for 30HP.And improve Athletics to 3 for 30XP...hmmm....is spending 90XP on a maid in one go showing too much favoritism, even if she is our Head Maid?
>>27189664Looking at her character sheet, no, she only has Fox Fire and the anti-Beth Barrier spell.
>>27189710I think she's good on health.
>>27189710We can probably hold off on Athletics for nowIf anything, I want to hold that XP for an event...probably when we get closer to home though. I can't imagine a good event here in this mansion at this time
>>27189721I'll consider 75XP for upgrading Tracy's fox fire to heal an ally for 1d6 health.
>>27189782Oh, that sounds too good to pass up.
>>27189782just for the sake of clarification. Will fox fire have to designate between being a harming attack vs a healing skill for use or will it be an attack that can splash heal a nearby ally
>>27189782But, that would mean not getting the Mana upgrade if we still want an Event later.
>>27189828It will have to be upgraded for another 75 XP if you want it to have splash damage.
>>27189940Alright then, I vote to upgrade FF to gain a healing warmth then. Never know when we will need an emergency heal after all
>>27189940Alright.I vote:75XP Upgrade Fox Fire to be able to Heal30XP Upgrade Mana to 30Tracy will need lots of Mana in order to take advantage of her Fox Fire's new ability.
>>27189964>Tracy is officially the team fighter, mage, and medicHead maid indeed!
You pat your two maids on the shoulders. "I know this might not be the best time to suggest this but after that fight upstairs I thin..OOOF!" Before you can finish both of the maids pounce on you. They aren't looking at you however. There is fire in their eyes as the tear you out of your clothes. Tracy hops on your lap first and boasts. "I saw him first, so I get first ride!" Her feet hook around your ankles, carefully avoiding scratching your legs with her claws. Tracy's hands press against your shoulder as she leans in, her mouth twisted in a deviant grin, but still locking eyes with Evelin. "That's fine little dog, I'm actually a little...thirsty. Hold still little juice box." Tracy's moistening cleft grinds into your stiffening member as her hips work up and down against yours in response to Evelin's teasing. Her gaze whips down towards you as Evelin raises your shoulders up. "Say it master, SAY I'M YOUR TOP BITCH" It's hard to focus on the sensations Tracy is gracing you with but you stammer out, "You're my top bitch Tracy, you're my top biOWW SHIT". You are thrown off by the feeling of Evelin's fangs piercing your shoulder. A thin stream of blood runs down your chest out of Evelin's mouth. She coos. "A negative, my favorite!" There is a slight sucking sensation at your shoulder as she feeds. Tracy bends down to lap at the leaking blood, her hot tongue playing against your nipple as she cleans you. The sensations are too much and you buck your hips, impaling Tracy. She squeals in lust as fill her up, bottoming out deep inside her. Evelin giggles as she pulls free of your neck.1/2
2/2"Take her master, take my mistress for me please?" You drive into Tracy as Evelin kisses you passionately, the coppery taste of your life blood hangs on her lips and you can feel her hand working herself under her dress. Tracy is nearing her peak as you can feel her claws dig into your chest lightly and the purple glow of he magic begins to suffuse into the air around you. Evelin dives back into the small wound on your shoulder right before the three of you come in unison. The purple magic of Tracy explodes around you and you pump into her. If you didn't know better you could have sworn you felt your energy pouring into the two maids, leaving a tingling sensation to the edge of your post orgasmic bliss. Tracy howls as she feels her magic pool fill again and her tails thrash about as she clamps down on you. Evelin holds your head in her lap as she bites her knuckle, her orgasm being much more reserved than Tracy's. She laughs and leans in, taking a moment to lock lips with Tracy. All the tension from before is gone and all seems right with the world, for a time. The mystery of the pool begins to nag at you and after cleaning up and redressing, the three of you hatch a plan.
>>27189966Upgraded. 5XP remaining. All HP/MP restored.You know something is lurking in that damned pool, but you also know that your new arm could crack a hole in a mountain. It's decided that you will poke your head in the door to see if anything nasty goes off, then a quick shot to the side of the pool basin, followed by waiting for it to drain and then a quick mop up to grab whatever is laying down there. The team agrees. You don the arm and the three of you head to the kitchen. The seared outline of the shadow monster is still pinned by the dildo in the wall. You slowly crack the door of the pool open and are buffeted by a foul smell. The natural pool is covered in a thick layer of algae and rot....Luck roll I'll take the first 4 1d100'sNumber to beat is 65
>>27190017>>27190029>"Say it master, SAY I'M YOUR TOP BITCH"
Rolled 89>>27190190Show me your secrets
Rolled 26>>27190190>dildoOh, right! We need to remember to recover our ammo.
Rolled 99>>27190190I'm just glad Tracy and Evelin are getting along now. They had me worried for a while.
>>27190225Damn, off by 1Needless to say, excellent roll
>99 So closethe surface remains placid, but your eyes notice that long piles of the pond scum are trailing from the water's edge as if dragged by something large. You decide to take the opportunity and to blast a hole in that lake. The arm seemingly senses your intent and begins to emit a high pitched whine. Blue light begins to flow down the arm from the shoulder and you feel it pool in your palm. You raise it in front of you. "Yippe-Ki-ay..", a bolt of blue plasma erupts forward...Athletics check. The pool is pretty big and its only 15m away. 50 is the number to beat. I'll take the first three 1d100s
Rolled 33>>27190358Yippie-Ki-Yay, motherfucker!
>>27190381Just made it.Good going, Spectral.
>>27190381The bolt explodes through the pool, accompanied by a howling scream and slams into the thin stone wall. The rock shatters and falls away, revealing just how close that pool was to the cliff edge. "..Motherfucker!" You expect the water to rush out, but it responds by clinging to the edge of the pool. The pond scum swirls revealing teeth and eyes and sucking organs all twisting, folding into themselves and re-emerging, but slowly falling towards the hole and the rest of its falling bulk. You feel a muscle in the base of your brain twinge. That wasn't a swimming pool. that was an honest to Yog shoggoth. You praise your luck as the last of its pseudopods are dragged through the hole and is dashed against the jagged rocks. The sharp points tearing the amobiec horror to shreds as it tumbles into the sea. You shudder to think of what it would have taken to kill that thing and are grateful that you won't have to deal with it in the future,After a few moments the acidic slime clears the basin. It is safe to explore now.+30 XP for cheap shotting a lovecraftian horror.What now Chosen One?
>>27190535Give it another minute, just to be sure that it's all gone. Then enter the Pool Room and ask Evelin and Tracy if they still feel the powerful magic.
>>27190535>the pool was a shoggothI am so glad I got outvoted. I honestly thought we could have a swim.
>>27190595It was also resistant to everything except ice damage. It was a monster for Yuriko. You got very lucky.
>>27190642If ya can't beat it head on, blow it out the airlock I say. And that is what we did
>>27190731You passed the luck roll on it not noticing you. It rolled terribly on its DC, seeing as it was a super boss with all stats 5 and 40HP. I had planned on it awakening and chasing you guys through the house, but you spaced that pile of snot like true pros.You all cheer your victory against the protoplasmic horror. Tracy and Evelin confirm that whatever was there before is now long gone. You walk up and test the walls of the pit, checking to see if they are still coated in acidic ooze and if they can support your weight. They pass and you climb down the rough stone face. Sitting at the bottom of the pool you find a small black stone. Its surface seems clear but the many disjointed faces seem to flow together in a manner that makes you heard hurt. You ask the others and they both agree that its something powerful. You put the stone in your pocket and decide to let Yuriko analyze it when you get back to the mansion.Where to now?
>>27190858Is there an option to take Evelin's coffin with us or is that unnecessary?If it's unnecessary, then we're heading home.
>>27190858HOME. WE NEED TO USE THE RESTROOM
>>27190924>hey, how do you flush this thing?>YURIKO, YURIKO SOMETHING'S HAPPENING MAKE IT STOP
>>27190858Collect spent dildo ammunition from the house for Yuriko to recharge, then head home.
>>27190858Ask Evelin if there's any personal belongings left in the Basement.If not, then let's recover the Dildo's we fired, get our loot, and then go home.
>>27190950Actually? The big reddish-orange button to the left with the STOP symbol.
>>27190960Agreed. If she had any momentos or necessary items down here, now is the last chance to get them.
I just looked at my clock and my notes for what is coming and unfortunately my dear players I must call it here. I will keep our appointment for Saturday at 3pm and will address all these points then. I promise DIMQ X will be celebrated by the mystery toilet reveal. Thanks for playing!
>>27191152Thanks for writing! See you then!
>>27191152See you Saturday!
>>27191152O-okay, OP. See you Saturday.And that's 3 PM EST right?
