http://pastebin.com/hyKYGWzC <---- Previous Threads and FAQhttps://twitter.com/SuquButts <---- TwitterYou are a Succubus. You have glowing eyes, demonic horns, little useless wings and a tail. You are curvy, attractive, and alluring. Today was supposed to be your day off.You are currently in Hell, taking cover behind a splintered church pew while a bunch of Demon guardsmen with crossbows are getting shot up by mask-wearing Demons with funny-looking guns and wings. Crouching next to you on your left is Herus Garst, the bone-headed human hero of Antaven and smiter of evil. He and his childhood sweetheart were transported to Hell illegally and separated: the winged Demons currently shooting up the place are most likely the people after him. To your right is your canine superior, a stuck-up bitch of a beast-lady-Demon named Shezra who is the leader of the Secret Police. She busted in with her own gang of troops in pursuit of Herus as well. As for you, you are also here for Herus, but you’re operating independently as a personal favour for your department boss, Lord Corosticul. At this point it's pretty obvious that things aren't going well.You had been sent as an agent of the Ministry to search for Herus and bring him back alive in order to figure out who is behind the illegal breach of Hell's dimensional transit system. After several run-ins with mysterious armed groups, you tracked him to a small Church on one of the lower levels of your home city, Ashfall. However when the Secret Police led by Shezra busted in on one side and masked assailants flew in on the other, you found yourself in a bit of a predicament. With your retinue of debased minions spread out across the city, you only have so many options available.What's the plan?
Shezra has the manpower to hold these attackers down. We need to get hero-boy out of here. Too bad I don't remember either of them wanting to cooperate...Also, good to see you back!
>>27207870You turn to Shezra. Her ashen fur bristles as your head pokes into her personal space. She smells like sweat, dog, and...a slight hint of perfume? "Shezra," you say in your most sweet-yet-loud-enough-to-be-heard-over-the-gunfire-and-screams-voice, "We need to get this guy out of here!" Herus glares at the two of you as he's mentioned, clearly unhappy about being talked about by evil Demons. Shezra shakes her head. "It's too heavy! We'll get shot if we stick our heads out now! I can take a few hits but that mortal will be swiss cheese in seconds!"To empasize her point, a stray bullet blasts through the church pew, sending wood chippings everywhere. It hit a few inches from your head.Perhaps you could come up with a diversion?
>>27207761>>27208040Joy, this is an utter clusterfuck.Okay, there are places we want to be, and they are not in the church caught in the crossfire.Gemini was going to get Gepette and Argenta so we do have some backup coming in if we can hold out.So we want to get hero boy out of here and bug out. I think we can convince him to come with us by saying that we can help him find Annie and want to help find her, but we need a distraction. How many spell casts do we have left? A skull bomb or sulfur cloud might make it possible to get out of here.Would it be possible to make a hole in the floor or wall and escape through that instead of going into the crossfire?Does Shezra have any equipment on her that could help?Also, tell Shezra that her perfume smells nice.
>>27208040Sulphur cloud over the pews! Is there a back exit we can bolt for?I've missed a few threads, so I'm not sure what's going on.
>>27208103>>27208215You stop and think. Gemini went to get help, but Gepette is still probably busy with the Soul candidates and you don't know if Argenta got home. Even if they're both available you'll probably have fifteen-to-twenty minutes before any help arrives. Sil is outside, so she might come in sooner. That said...The church pew is crumbling fast, even only with the occasional stray shot. If the gunners's attention was focused on you, it'd be destroyed in moments. It isn't safe to stay. You cast your eye around the room. The Church was converted from an old warehouse, so you doubt that there's anything useful like a basement to fall into. Since it's built on a platform they try not to dig too deep in this District. That said, there seems to be a side entrance behind the altar. The two groups of Demons are at the front entrance and the right wall, so if you got closer to the altar you'd have more cover. Though it's also possible there's someone waiting in the wings to catch you should you make a run for it.Shezra swears as another of her soldiers goes down with a gurgle. You try and gently put your hand on her should but she shrinks away, growling. Shezra is much taller and stronger than you are, but you smile anyway and compliment her perfume. She seems surprised you noticed and looks away.Next to you, Herus tightens his grip on his sword. You'd better think of something before he does something stupid.
>>27208284skull bomb AND sulphourous cloud. Try to get to the side entrance while they are distracted with wounded.
>>27208284I think it's best to use one of our spells here. Either the Skull bomb to kill, or the Sulphur cloud to distract while we leave. It's more important to get the guy out of here then to save the mooks, I think.
>>27208330I gotta agree. We're outgunned and outmatched here. Get Herus, Shezra and her men out of there. Hell, we might even get the help of the church demon to help us against those goons who are shooting up the place.
>>27208284About how many masked enemies are there? Have Shezra's forces taken any out?As for the plan, we'll want to drop a skull bomb amid the masked ones, it'll distract them, the explosion will knock them around, and it ought to give us enough time to leg it towards the exit with Herus, we can flame whip anything in the way if need be. Sulfer Cloud might also work.
>>27208284Alright Herus, I need you to trust me here. My job is to get you and the other mortal OUT of Hell. Neither of you are supposed to be here. I don't blame you for not trusting me, I'm a demon and I've done some heinous shit. But right now I am your best friend in the world and am COMPLETELY HONEST when I say we need to get away from here.
>>27208308>>27208330>>27208377>>27208394You furrow your brow and clap your hands together. Your companions turn to look at you."Okay, here's the plan. I'll summon a smokescreen spell, then lob a magic bomb at those masked goons, then we make a run for the altar. I don't like using up magic but-" Shezra raises a paw. "I have a combustion grenade, that can save you the trouble." She looks at you with yellow canine eyes. You smile at her kind gesture and she looks away from you again, her dog ears low. Herus seems less-convinced."Why should I trust you two? You're both evil Demons, you could be leading me to my death." He has a point, you'll need to reason with the big lug."Alright Herus, I need you to trust me here. My job is to get you and the other mortal OUT of Hell. Neither of you are supposed to be here. I don't blame you for not trusting me, I'm a demon and I've done some heinous shit. But right now I am your best friend in the world and am COMPLETELY HONEST when I say we need to get away from here."After a moment, Herus sighs and nods in acceptance. You can tell that if you try anything he'll run you through instantly, however.You take a peek at the Altar's side-entrance. You can go now or wait a little longer. What's the plan?(there are around ten to twelve goons, Shezra's men have killed three but they're down to about five guardsmen themselves)
>>27208519Drop smoke cloud, drag idiotic git out the back. We can reason with him when we're not dying.
>>27208519Go for it, waiting longer just means the goons will have more time to take out the guardsmen and then go after us. We want the grenade and the smokescreen to go off at the same time if possible, maximum confusion.And it was supposed to be our day off.
>>27208612Yep, best plan
>>27208648>>27208612>>27208558"Go!"Shezra barks out a command to her men who take cover, and stands up. With a flash, her black paw slings an amber sphere directly into the surprised attackers, who are caught in a flaming blast that knocks them out of the air. As Shezra grabs Herus and drags him out of cover you spring up and cast Sulfur Cloud. A twirling mist of noxious yellow gas fills the air and sends everyone except you into a coughing fit. Smiling, you follow your compatriots towards the back.After passing through the walk-on entrance into a storage room, Shezra kicks the back door open and heads out into the alleyway with Herus. You follow, totally unaffected as Shezra and Herus both cough up flem and bile onto the pavement. Well, that worked. You can hear the cries of more local police and bored sellswords descending on the place from out front, the gang of shooters inside are probably in trouble now. Still, where's-Something hits you hard in the stomach. You feel your internals being crushed. Looking down, the hilt of a silver sword has slammed into your waist. Herus is right in front of you. He smiles. You fall to your knees, gasping as the wind is knocked out of you. Shezra looks up from her vomiting to see Herus deftly jump onto the back of a skybarge that quickly flies off down the street. She barks in surprise and looks at you, clearly pissed off."Why didn't you-! Shit! I've got to go after him! I've-!"Wham! Shezra is knocked forwards into a trashcan and bangs her snout. Standing over her, clad in black armor and a tiny corset is Sil, giving you a curious look."Did I get the right person?"Shezra's tail wags lazily as she groans in pain. Well, now what?
>>27208834Ask Sil where's Lierre. Get the wounded to her so she can heal them.
Who's Sil? If she's taking your orders, tell her to go after the idiot hero. Examine your own injuries.
>>27208834Damn, I figured the sulfur cloud would keep him choking long enough for him not to run off like that. Fuck.Casually start petting Shezra's tail, because we may as well and it is wagging."No, not exactly. The right person ran off. We aren't going to catch him by just running after him. Fucking heroes, fucking nuns, it was supposed to be my day off.At least we didn't die, and we got some information out of this. Whoever brought those two in here is up to something nasty, and those masked demons were remarkably well equipped. The stupid hero shouldn't be too hard to find again, he's hardly subtle, but let's get Annie before we try to grab him again. He'll be looking for her anyways and if we have her he'll be a lot more compliant. And to do that we should regroup, catch our breath, share whatever information all of us have gathered, and formulate an actual plan."After we've caught our breath we should meet up with our friends, or at least some of them, especially Gemini, go over the information we've gathered and what we know about the situation, and puzzle out where Annie went. Lierre shouldn't have gone far so she can heal us up as well.
>>27209039>>27209008>>27209006"No, not exactly. The right person ran off."You get up and dust yourself off. Your stomach hurts like hell but it doesn't seem like a lasting injury. Sil seems sad. You give her a pat on the head. "Don't worry, at least we figured out where we stand. We can track him easily with Gemini and we know all he cares about is his girl. Let's regroup with the others-""No, damn it." Shezra pulls herself up. Her finely-ironed uniform is scuffed and torn, and she's sweating and breathing heavily. Her canine teeth bared, you feel like the wolf-Demon is about to jump on you."Why the FUCK should you get to save the day? I'm the one who upholds the law. I'm the one who is efficient, intelligent and loyal. You're just some loose horned bimbo who knows how to suck a dick. You're not going to win. I'm going to find that stupid human and you're going to go home. If you cross me again I swear by The Pit I will end you."She turns on her heel and stalks off down the street. Do you want to try and talk to her or head back to your apartment and regroup?
>>27209209Let's gather everyone here then go home. We need to think up a plan.
>>27209209Let's let her cool off first, right now she's concussed and annoyed. Head back to the apartment and strategize.
>>27209209Talk to her."Shezra, I know far more than how to suck dicks. I know how people work, and that means I know what Herus is going to do next, I know what he wants and how he's going to go about it. You're going to be nipping at his heels, tiring yourself out, just chasing him like a stupid dog and not catching him, and I'll be waiting where he's going to go. Didn't you notice that both times we've run into each other today I got there first? And you've been doing a lot more running than I have. How are you the efficient one if I get there first and expend less effort? And every single time you've burst on the scene the human ran off and you didn't catch him.So Shezra, I have a proposition for you. You want the acclaim for saving the day? Do you want a pretty plaque that you can put on your desk? You can have it. There is no contest between us, I'm not competing with you. All I want is to do my job and then go back home to a very full bed. I don't care about recognition. If you work with me we'll both get what we want, if you don't then we'll fuck each other over, again. And in that case we both lose, the human wins, and our bosses get pissed at us.Shezra. Do you want to be the smart hunting hound that intelligently cuts her prey off and corners them giving them no escape, or do you want to be the stupid hound that mindlessly chases after its prey?"As we're talking approach closer to her, put a sway in our hips, and if possible touch fluffy tail.
>>27209209blah blah. Let's just do what we've been tasked with doing, so we can get back to our day off. Group up with the people who will actually help.
>>27209369>>27209589>>27209612You decide to gather your party before venturing forth, and resolve to talk to Shezra later.---On the way home you collected Gemini and Lierre and met Argenta who had just finished work. Geppette was waiting for you when you arrived.However, it seems that the city has gone into lockdown: The Police and Safety Bureau have released an APB for Herus, probably because of Shezra's report. As a result all lifts and transit systems have been shut down: You barely made it back to your apartment before you would have been stuck on the lowest floor. Now all you can see outside are Police airships and Guardsmen on high alert. You turn back to your pigsty of a living room. To the left on the couch is Silmera and Gemini. Sil apparently took to the androgynous Demon, and has her arm around its shoulders. On the floor next to them is Lierre, slowly oozing her slime onto the floor. You stick a bowl under the trickle thoughtfully.Meanwhile, Geppette is sitting on the table, and Argenta is muttering to herself in the corner. The two of them seem unhappy with the new arrivals. You might have to defuse the situation.At any rate, you need to figure out where to go and what to do. What's the plan?
>>27209641God damn it. Now next time we get close to something Shezra is going to show up and fuck it up for us, again.Start by giving people kisses, because we haven't seen some of them all day and we love them."Right, so Herus is running around like a stupid hero and Shezra is chasing him like a stupid dog. Let's leave them to that, they can distract each other and we don't have to worry about that.Which is why we play it smarter than her and go after Annie, because if we have Annie we control Herus, to a degree."Have everyone spill any information they've gathered today. Have Gemini do a city wide probe, to see if she/he can gather any more information on possible locations she can be as well as if he/she can determine which locations are shielded. Take a look at a map of the city and circle on it locations that it's likely for her to be.
>>27209770Also, last thread we sent Gepette out to transform the remaining humans with Demonseeds. Ask her for an update on that. And have everyone update us on any relevant information they've seen, heard, done, and so on today.
>>27209770Seconded, sounds like a good plan to me.
>>27209835>>27209770You decide to ask everyone what they've learned today and ask Gemini to do a mind-scan while you talk. Geppette steps forward on her spikes, smiling cheerily at the sudden attention."So hey! I went to that place with the cages and the dudes and stuff!" She beams. "I took those guys and zapped 'em with magic and they turned into funky-looking monster things! I'm kind of out of magic though because of it, so I can't really help much." She shrugs and you notice she's not flying and in fact can barely stand, wobbling on her pointed feet. Gently you take Gepette in your arms and carry her into your bedroom. The chalky-white skin is warm to the touch as you feel her forehead. She's slightly warm but should be fine with bedrest. You brush hair out of your face and give her a kiss on the forehead and tuck her in. Gepette won't be much help today.Back in the room, Argenta and Sil are glaring at each other. You step between them and they both back away glumly. Argenta sighs."Revie, things aren't good. The patrons were all talking about their shipments being seized, things being cancelled, walkways closed off... And anyway, what's up with these clowns?" She points a finger at Sil, who immediately huffs up. You put your hand firmly on Sil's chest and give Argenta a look."Argenta, honey, they're here to help. Sil, did you notice anything around the back?" Sil blinks, and pulls out a wallet. It's dripping blood."I took this from some masked dork with wings." She grins. How did she...? Nevermind. You take it and open it. Inside is an ID tag with a crest you don't recognize. It "looks" like a Noble family's crest, but you couldn't tell which one. Gemini pipes up. "This city is much more chaotic now," it says quietly, turning to look at you with no eyes, "I can't see very well, but I think that a large number of Demons and mortals are heading up towards the top."Hmm...
>>27210056Ornate Enclave Districts:Top Level: Private Estates, Ascension SpireMinistry Level: Soul Ministry Building, Department Of Demonseed, Hall Of The Lost, Legion BaseResidential District: Your Apartment (YOU ARE HERE), Bright Spark Bookstore and Café, Slave QuartersShopping District: Markets (Daemon Arms, Fatal Fashion, Grocery Bounty, Slave Stockyard), Broken Bone Bar, Legion Warehouses, Direweed ParkRecreation District: Mortal Delight Brothel, Bloodmoon Bath House, Tyr Arena, Blackstone Church, House Of Pleasure Stripclub, Tonic Trouble Bar, Skyterror Tours, Hell AtriumPort: Slums, Arrivals, Departures, Cargo FieldWhat's your next move?
>>27210056>>27210073A coup d'etat? Where are the large group now? Can Gemini get a reading on them?
>>27210101Gemini's brow furrows. "All I can tell is that there are two groups of moving targets, one being the Police patrolling in an orderly fashion through all levels, and a more quickened cluster of entities of various forms heading upwards. I cannot see the Estates clearly."
>>27210169We should check it out at least, it might be a group chasing one of our targets.
>>27210073Look through the rest of the wallet, see if there's anything else of use. There any way we can send a message to our boss with the crest so he can see who it belongs to? Could the crest be faked in order to put the blame for this on a different noble family?And we still don't know where the hell Annie is, but honestly I'm not sure that's the most important thing right now. Referring to last thread the possibilities were somewhere unknown and shielded, 4 the Market, 1 in the Slave Quarters. I don't think it's the Market, we've been through there same with Herus. We're on the same level as the Slave Quarters so it should be pretty easy to check that out or send one person check it.The rest of us need to find a way to the Top Level, something is happening over there that we should keep an eye on.We should probably keep Lierre here, she won't be much use to us in this.Also, would Lierre's potion help Gepette recover faster?
>>27210169Yes. Let's go up to the Private Estates. We can find out about the Noble crest there. I think we should bring Sil, Argenta, and Gemini. Let Lierre stay here and help heal Gepette if she can. We can't get someone to mind her on the mission.
>>27210329>There any way we can send a message to our boss with the crest so he can see who it belongs to? Not with the lockdown in effect. He's probably arguing with the Bureau right now.>Could the crest be faked in order to put the blame for this on a different noble family?Who knows? The guy Sil beat up was just a mook. Seems like an elaborate ruse.>Also, would Lierre's potion help Gepette recover faster?Gepette's asleep, maybe if you woke her up or something.
I agree with heading to the Private Estates. The family who someone's trying to run a false flag on would probably be thankful.If we can't just slip Gepette the potion without waking her, just let her sleep.
>>27210471>>27210357Okay, so we're going up.Who do we take with us?Silmera: Elf, has a warhammer, good in a fightArgenta: Demon, mace-tail and powerful fighterLierre: Demon, oozes healing powers, dumb as a post and needs to be led aboutGemini: Demon, ESP-user, powerful detection skills, small and fragile
>>27210561Sil, Argenta, and Gemini.Lierre has uses, but babysitting her in what may end up as pretty much a fucking warzone doesn't sound fun. Gemini gives us way too much situational awareness to not have with us, can help us avoid big fights, and take cover when shit goes happen.
>>27210561Is there a limit on how many we can take?I'd recommend SAG unless we have a limit of two. Taking Lierre basically makes another person useless.
>>27210684Nah, but you don't want anyone getting skewered right?
>>27210721Well, we do have a some of Lierre healing fluids. We can just put them in some bottles and use then as healing potions.
>>27210832>>27210684>>27210607You fish some old glass Jars out of the sink and head over to Lierre. Sil and Argenta watch, rather flustered as you start sqeezing and kneading the lumpy, minty sappy goo from Lierre's swollen breasts. With each groping glop the dizzy Demon lets out a soft gasp or a short moan. You fill up a jar. Then another. She's panting heavily, this is really turning her on. While this is happening you turn to Sil and Argenta."Okay, you two are going to come with me. We're going to have to find a way up, evade the patrols, figure out which castle-tower estate is where Herus and the conspirators are, and then bust in. Suit up, I'll finish up our provisions."With a final twist you empty the last dollop of healing gel into the third Jar and put them into a should-carrybag, then give it to Gemini. The slender Demon looks up at you curiously as Lierre collapses in a puddle of various liquids. "Gemini, you're coming too. Can you carry this?""Yes, but..." It hesitates. "Are you sure I won't be a burden?"What do you say?
>>27210964"No. Your abilities will be -very- helpful. You'll just play a different role than Argenta and Sil, that's all."
>>27210964Pull Gemini into a hug and give her kisses in between talking to him/her."Gem sweetie, what I need from you isn't fighting. Sil and Argenta more than have that covered. Don't worry about that.You however know everything that is happening in an area, you know where groups of people or demons are so we can avoid them or get ahead of them, you can pinpoint people, you know what people are thinking. You can do something invaluable that none of the rest of us can.We'll keep you safe my dear. Just keep us informed of our surroundings and what's going on. You are not a burden."And we should probably get Lierre on a couch and put a blanket over her, tell her to take a nap or something.
>>27211145>>27211080You wrap your arms around Gemini, kissing them on the cheek. Gemini tenses up, embarassed."Gem sweetie, what I need from you isn't fighting. Sil and Argenta more than have that covered. Don't worry about that. You however know everything that is happening in an area, you know where people are, you know what people are thinking. You can do something invaluable that none of the rest of us can." You feel Gemini's arms wrap around you."We'll keep you safe. Just keep an eye on the area around us and you won't be a burden." Gemini looks up at you, her eyeless face full of emotion. You can feel that she has a very strong imprint on you, since you were there for her birth. In fact, all the girls seem to have imprinted on you...you can feel Argenta's arms over your shoulders. She's dressed in a suit of armor, but you don't really mind since you're having a nice moment with your children. Then suddenly Sil appears and manages to ruin it with her pointy shoulder-pads.---The three of you head out. The streets are deserted, and there's patrols everywhere. Carefully your group makes its way toward the central cylinder. There are guards near the elevators and the transport berths are all chained up.Perhaps you could steal a ride from the Spider pens? That, or beat up the guards. What's the go?
>>27211323Steal a ride. Because we're just that cool.
>>27211323Steal a ride.
>>27211344Taking your gang over to the nearby cage racks, you find that the proprietor has already headed home. Between rows of spitting, hissing black giant Spiders are several raised walkways. You head in, having used a Spider before, however amusingly enough Gemini and Argenta hold back. Cute.Sil, meanwhile, is right there beside you, poking poor Spiders with her long fingers and giggling like a schoolgirl. You're about to ask her why she's so giddy when the cheery Elf points to a cage with a fuzzy eight-legged giant inside. "This one!" she says, and you can't think of a reason to turn her down.A few minutes and convincing later you and Silmera are now on the backs of a large, bristly arachnid mount. To the left are Argenta with Gemini on her back, both of them riding a smaller and less-aggressive Spider, looking as apprehensive as they are. Clicking your tongue, you order the two Spiders forwards towards the exit. A pair of Policement in horned caps heard the chaos and yell at you to stop but they quickly jump out of the way as you barrel past into the plaza.There are two ways up. You could asend via the main spire and go straight to the top, or climb up the Districts via the walkways and platforms and support struts. One is much fast but more exposed while the other is slower but gives you more cover.Which way?
>>27211682Main spire, we're in a hurry and people are distracted by everything else going on.
>>27211769You head up the main spire in a hurry. The Spiders' legs find purchase in the nocked and rough surface of the main cylinder, and they start skittering up at rapid speed. With your arms around Sil's thin waist you feel like a maiden riding on the steed of a knight. To your side Argenta and Gemini are having much less of a romantic time. You laugh as you pass the Ministry District. "I can detect something!" Gemini says over the howl of the air currents, "From above!" You crane your neck backwards and catch sight of the huge shadow blocking out the sun. It's a massive aerial warship decked out in the Ministry colors, a dual-balloon airship with armored Dragonscale fabric. The ship's huge open deck and several cannons swivel to meet you as you and Argenta halt. Standing on the bow is none other than Shezra, decked out in a leather combat suit. Her multiple rows of small breasts are now more obvious, the tight suit accentuating her more feminine curves. A black nose looks down at you."Revulvael! I told you, I TOLD YOU, You are NOT doing this shit. I'm going to count to three and if you don't turn back I'm firing this net launcher at you!"The nasty-looking snare-gun turns to face you."I can jump up to her," Argenta whispers. If you sent Argenta to attack you could probably get past, however Shezra is very strong. You could also try and get up there yourself with your whip and send the others on ahead...Decisions, Decisions.
>>27212064Let's send Argenta with the strict orders of rejoining us as soon as we're out of range of their weapons. Besides, she'll like us giving her a duty like this. Poor girl will feel less left out.
>>27212064Get up there ourself, send the others ahead.We can solve this through judicious use of diplomacy and our silver tongue, hopefully. We still have the ID tag with the crest on it, right?I think we can convince her to stand down, work with us, and help us deal with the problem instead of being caught up in her hissy fit against us. And I still maintain we should have talked to her earlier.
>>27212223>>2721215550/50 huh? Which should we do?
Rolled 2>>272122801 - Argenta2 - Us
>>27212319(okay!)You shake your head. "Sil, Argenta, you guys keep going. I'll catch up."Before they or the ship can react you leap from your Spider, sailing through the air. With a flick of your whip you seize a support strut on the blimp's radial fins and swing up, using your momentum, onto the deck. Landing on your heels with poise and grace, you straighten your vest and turn to face Shezra.She's pretty much beyond mad right now, nearly frothing at the mount. The rest of the crew scrambles below deck in fear, you're alone with nothing but a massive dog-woman for company.How will you defuse her?
Rolled 1>>27212402"I don't see why you need to make this a competition. Given the troubles this human's already given us, I'd think that combining strengths would have been the easy choice, Shezra dear. I don't care about my name being in this, you can take all the credit. What do you say?"That said, we can always ditch her later.
>>27212468This, but if she starts to respond negatively, just sucker punch her.
>>27212468Given that roll, I think we should prepare for a little bit of puppy training.
>>27212402Give her our friendliest smile and look her up and down approvingly."Hello Shezra. Might I say that you look absolutely stunning in leather, it suits you. If we weren't so busy I'd be inviting you back to my place for some fun. I know, you want to kill me and so on. But why don't we put that on hold for a bit sweetheart.I have a very simple question for you. Do you want to fix this massive clusterfuck that's going on or is your grudge against me more important than doing your job? This isn't about competition. If you want the credit and public recognition for all this you can have it, I don't want it, it'd cut into my busy schedule of sleeping in and having copious amounts of kinky sex. If you do keep up this grudge neither of us are going to get what we want, we'll both be in the doghouse, so to speak, with our bosses, and I might get less leisure time.You can't deny that I know what I'm doing. Every single time, without the entirety of the Secret Police behind me, I've ended up ahead of you. Hell, I had the human eating out of my hand before you busted in. I know how the human thinks, I know what he wants, I have good guesses as to where he's going.Also, there might be a coup d'etat going on about now. There's a large group headed upwards right now, I doubt they're up to any good."Toss her the ID."This was on one of the masked demons with guns. Do you happen to know which family it belongs to? Obviously it doesn't mean they're involved, it just means that someone wants people to think they're involved.But as you can see you have far bigger problems than me going on and I'm the best chance you have at solving this. You'll find I can be a very good friend to have around."
>>27212468>>27212524>>27212543"I don't see why you need to make this a competition. Given the troubles this human's already given us, I'd think that combining strengths would have been the easy choice, Shezra dear. I don't care about my name being in this, you can take all the credit. What do you say?"Shezra looks at you for a moment. Then she growls, her ears low."What, so you can just use me as a meat shield? Another pawn for the minion-collector Revulvael? Fuck that shit. I'm going to beat you to a pulp and make you submit."She takes another step closer, her paws balled up into fists.Maybe another approach is required?
>>27212613"Shezra, you're --"Then punch her in the fucking nose.
>>27212613What sort of stun spells and abilities do we have again? I'd rather not go straight-up with the bitch.
>>27212674You can check the FAQ up top, you've got about two slots left. That said it might be a good idea to hang on to some for later.
>>27212613Time to get out the whip."If you won't see reason, there's only one thing to say - Down girl!" Let's just see who submits.
>>27212613"Submit to what? We both know you can beat me in a fist fight for all the good that's done you today. It's not going to prove anything to anyone. You still won't have found the human or done your job. I thought you said you were loyal, efficient, and intelligent. Attacking the one who can help you instead of doing your job is none of these.A pile of masked demons with guns killed a pile of your guardsmen and you're worried about me?Oh, by the way, there's a group of demons headed up towards the top, I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same group."Toss her the ID."The noble families are involved, or someone wants us to think they are. This is a lot bigger than your grudge against me."
>>27212791>>27212778"Submit to what? We both know you can beat me in a fist fight for all the good that's done you today. It's not going to prove anything to anyone. You still won't have found the human or done your job. " You take a step towards her. She flinches slightly. "I thought you said you were loyal, efficient, and intelligent. Attacking the one who can help you instead of doing your job is none of these.""Here's what I can do." You toss the ID onto the floor. Shezra's eyes sparkle in recognition. "The's a large group of demons who headed upwards towards the Estates. You should be able to put two and two together."Shezra looks down at the tag, her eyes wide. You can tell you've just completely blown apart her reasons for fighting you instead of dealing with the situation. Unfortunately, it looks like she's not going to stick her paws in her mouth. Shezra growls once again. Oh well."If you won't see reason, then there's only one thing to say..." Your whip crackles to life."Down girl!" A furry fist flies at your face! You roll out of the way. Shezra is on all fours and is upon you in an instant. All you can do is kick her in the nose with your heels and send her running into a barrel. The whole deck rocks as the hulking beat-woman rises out of the broken supplies. Taking the moment, you leap upon her back and wrap your whip around her neck. The heat won't burn her, but it hurts, and Shezra's energy is sapped as she collapses to the floor."Fuck. Just *cough* kill me! Spare me this humiliation!" She cries.She's at your mercy now, what will you do?
>>27212951I'm new to this setting, so what would be some socially acceptable options on how to deal with an opponent that attacked us out of sheer pig-headed malice?
>>27212951"No, for Pit's sake! I want to kiss and make nice, and will beat you till you do it! You are going to deal with that damn coupe so I can do my damn job!"
>>27212951"You can either help, or go home and stay out of the way. I won't kill you. If you want, I can thrash you later, but I won't kill you.Now, which is it going to be?"
>>27213007However you want, nobody's going to stop you. You could ride her up the spire if you wanted.
>>27212951Turn her over, keep the whip wrapped around her neck, look her straight in the eyes and give her a kiss on the lips."I never wanted to kill you or hurt you in the first place sweetheart. All I want is to deal with this so I can go home, enjoy my day off, and fuck. Killing you would mean a lot of paperwork.But you were the one who said you were going to beat me to a pulp and make me submit, and it looks like I just beat you to a pulp. So if that is how it has to be then submit, promise that you will listen to what I say and stop trying to fuck with me and let bygones be bygones. I still want your help because I can't solve this situation alone."
>>27213110Now that you mention it, I kind of want to see that. Maybe later though, forgiving authority seems to be the consensus.
>>27213140>>27213125>>27213057>>27213044So you guys want to either ask her to help or send her home, right?
>>27213165Correct. Ideally, she'll help us. If she can't pull herself together enough to do that, she should go home and we'll pay a visit to her later.
>>27213165Yup. We can add in that we'd like to see her naked at our place later, but that's not really relevant to right now.
>>27213165Maybe with a reminder that we're the alpha bitch from now on.
>>27213199That is a good reminder.If we manage to play our cards right the head of the Secret Police will be in our pocket from now on, that's very useful.
>>27213195>>27213198>>27213199You force Shezra onto her back. Her teary eyes look up at you."Oh honey, I never wanted to kill you. All I want is to end this stupidity and go home. This was my day off."You gently stroke her nose and she shies away, whimpering slightly."I just beat you up to get you out of the way. Now, I am going to fly this blimp up top, and you are going to go and gather the Ministry forces and come up to whatever Estate will be on fire when you arrive."You use your whip to drag her up with a yelp, and give her a kiss on the nose. "And remember, I'm the alpha bitch now. Remember that."Shezra pulls herself upright, but her face is still downcast. You can smell her strong body scent. After pulling your whip away, she goes to the side of the airship and leaps off, her claws digging in as she grinds down the side of the Pillar with her tail between her legs.You turn to the crew, who were watching from under the stairs. "Gentlemen, if you'd please?"---A few moments later, your commandeered warship floats up over the lip of the top level. Ahead of you, a giant cable streteches up towards the sky connecting with the far-off Enclaves of Ashfall. Ashfall itself is a super-structure that hangs across an entire hemisphere of Hell. At the base of the connection several forts and towers sprout, each a miniature city for each Noble family.Below you on the lip you can see a battle raging. Argenta and Silmera are clearly visible surrounded by black-clothed thugs, with Gemini...sitting off to the side and drinking tea? Picking up the ID tag, you match the sigil to a fancy gate nearby. That must be the place. As if to confirm your suspicions, Gemini stands up and points to the gate with a huge tower behind it. You grin. Gemini must have been listening to your train of thought. You immediately think of jerking off penises and Gemini spills her tea. So now what? Enter the tower with the ship? save your pals?
>>27213367Best save our pals. Less exciting to try kinky sex with them when they are dead.
>>27213367Save our friends. Stick together team.
>>27213414That's all a matter of viewpoint I suppose, but I agree. Let's save our pals and tell the airship to fly interdiction on the tower to prevent escapees.
>>27213438Oh, so you want to disembark the Airship and approach on foot, or go down in the airship and use the ship's guns to blow away the thugs? Of course, an airship against a bunch of guys with rifles may not be a good idea.
>>27213367How are Argenta and Silmera looking? Do they look like they're going to be fine or are they getting worn down?I think we should think at Gemini to call those two out of the melee, get them to disengage, and then we hit the goons with our cannon, on a unrelated note the plural of cannon is cannon or pieces of cannon, or net launchers. I think net launchers would be good since it means we can have the crew apprehend them and interrogate them later.We've got big guns, we should use them.Then I think we can enter the tower with our ship, bring our friends with if we can, it'd be nice to have Gemini give us a full accounting of what we're charging into.
>>27213482It's got armored balloons, two of them, and we ought to be able to keep our distance from them and just bombard them.
>>27213484>How are Argenta and Silmera looking?They're looking great, their outfits really show off their- oh right. They're good for now, though if Sil gets killed she'll die.>>27213505Yeah, but the crew might get hit since you'll be going low, and you need them to fly it. You might not be able to use it to get to the tower.
>>27213482I was saying disembark and then have the airship make sure nothing flies out of the tower to get away. As long as they keep out of rifle range they should be okay.
>>27213533Net launchers. We have them. Let's use them. Get Gemini to tell Argenta and Sil to take cover. We're gonna be shooting nets near them.
>>27213533People die when they are killed, you know.
So, bombard the thugs and land to pick up our friends, then attempt to approach the tower, yes?
>>27213640I am going to vot with disembarking, asking that the airship watch the tower
>>27213656Well let's see what the others think.
>>27213640I'm >>27213484 and >>27213505I'm for bombardment from a distance, keeping as much hull between the enemies and the balloons as we can.
>>27213640Yes. Bombard the thugs with Net Launchers only. Then we can go into the place together.
>>27213791>>27213775>>27213656"Tally ho!"The skeleton crew open fire with the nets as you swoop out of the sky. The imp helmsman assures you he can avoid hitting your friend, and as the heavy rope netting drops entire flocks of winged thugs to the ground, you're impressed by the crew's accuracy. Sil and Argenta cheer as your gigantic airship sidles down alongside them, and Gemini climbs on Argenta's back as the three of them make their way up the rope ladder onto the deck. You order your majestic vessel to return to the skies and approach the tower. Argenta nods towards the Estate."I've heard of those guys. The Camoran Family. They're often the butt of complains in the bars where I work." Argenta coils her metallic hair as she explains that they're a group who have a lot of connections to art and culture in the city, and that word from the Camorans can get a show cancelled or a museum closed. You wonder how they could be related...?Suddenly, as your ship breaches the gates, there's a krakoom! As a thunderbold streaks by. Flying down from the tower is a huge, lanky looking red-skinned Demon with leathery wings, armor, and a huge scythe. He looks pretty powerful. Your imp helmsman swears."That's Char Azrael." You motion for the thin fellow to continue. "He's a former Air Corps ace, but now he works for the highest bidder. He'll cut us up if we go for the top, I can only swing by that middle balcony before he shoots us down." You weigh up the options. Dare you tangle with the Red Comet?
>>27213964Fuck no. We're more of a patrol ship than a dedicated fighter. Swing by to the middle balcony.
>>27213964Well, this ain't good. We can't really tangle with him effectively, not enough crew or experience in this field.Have Gemini scope out the location, inform us of where the people are concentrated, where the fighting is, and get an idea of what Char is thinking about.Middle balcony seems like our best shot.
>>27214022>>27214133You call out to Gemini, but their reply is cut off as another booming thunderbolt lances along the side of the vessel, scraping off wood and metal."Fuck it! I'm going in!" cries the imp, who yanks the wheel hard.The airship rocks and angles nose down as you approach the spike-topped tower. It could easily be considered a small town itself in sheer size, and the flaps of Char's wings as he closes fall away as you prepare yourself and your friend for the leap. A second blast rocks the boat, but you manage to leap just in time, followed by Sil, Argenta with Gemini clinging tightly to her back and surprisingly enough the helmsman who lands in a heap. You manage to roll gracefully onto the tiled landing, and immediately turn to watch as your flaming transport slams into a hedge maze, sending Skeleton bones everywhere. Ouch. You hope those guys can pull themselves together after this."Look out!" Silmera is there with you as Char Azrael circles the balcony. You can see his face now: he wears a rather fetching white mask and helmet. The Demon smiles, and flies away.Huh. That's not good. That means there's probably something in here that can take care of you.The Helmsman rubs his head as Argenta helps him up, and Gemini hops down off her back. Your androgynous little companion walks slowly inside, headdress swaying with each step. You follow, and find yourselves at a fountain featuring a three-headed snake. Swag.Gemini points to two stairwells."There's a human downstairs and a human upstairs. At the top there is also a human. I can't..tell anything more, this place is shielded somehow."Well, up or down?
>>27214237Shit. Up has a chance of dealing with Char but better chance of finding those two. Down, is unknown dangers, chances, anything. Up it is.
>>27214237Go down, stay in the stairwell and peer around the corner to see who it is.
>>27214237Down first. We'll check upstairs afterwards.
>>27214373>>27214351>>27214348You decide to head down first. Don't want to let anything slip past. The tired Helmsman rests on the edge of the fountain and tells you to go on without him. Poor bastard.The stairwell is decorated with nicely-made statues of bronze figures, all in various states of undress. Sil oggles some of them but you manage to get her moving faster with a slap of her firm leather-encased buttocks. After making it to the bottom, you peek out into a large, open-air bath. Steam fills the air as water spurs forth from fonts into the shallow and inviting hot-springs.Looking through the steam, you can see a single humanoid figure in the water, with long shiny golden hair and a slender frame. Is this the woman you're looking for, or is it a trap?Gemini can't seem to tell. They have been having trouble getting readings in the tower. You pet them on the head and say that it can't be helped. You'll have to decide on how to approach this on your own.
>>27214446Look for motions, does she seem to be in trouble? If not, she is fine where she is and lets go check up top.
>>27214446Okay, we're going to approach her alone, keep the rest of our party hidden nearby on standby in case there are any surprises, we don't want to reveal that we've got a posse with us. Whoever it is might have information or let us know what to expect up above.Get a bit closer but keep a fair bit of distance, don't get in the water, and casually greet whoever it is. See how they react.
>>27214575She seems very tired, but not in distress. Someone who is having a soak after a long, hard day.
>>27214446I think this is a trap. We go in and try to talk with the lady. Sil goes left and Argenta goes right, round the bath. Gem stays where he is.
>>27214607>>27214591So do you want to leave your gang back or have them circle around?
>>27214679Only circle around if they won't be seen by the bather. We don't want to spook her or look threatening.
>>27214703She's facing away from you.
>>27214709You might want to put your name back on.
>>27214745Wah! Sorry!>>27214709>>27214605are me.
Anyway yeah. She's kind of slumped down in the water facing away from you, but doesn't seem distressed or anything.(sorry I didn't notice, I was watching the new episode of gatchaman.)
>>27214853>>27214853Now I'm almost certain it's a trap. Still go with the circle around plan.
>>27214910>>27214703>>27214607You tell Sil and Argenta to carefully circle around the bathhouse while you approach from the front. Gemini hangs back.You find yourself nearly slipping on the wet, slick tiles as you approach, but somehow manage to keep quiet. The steam clears slightly, and you finally get a good look at your target as you call out to them in as calmly a manner as you can manage.Pulling themselves from the water with a tired-looking smile is...an elf. A young, very thin elf with just the right amount of curve to their stomach and thighs. They have long, well-treated blonde hair reaching down to their waist, golden earrings, and makeup. And well...You take a look at the crotch. It was a trap, after all, just not the one you expected."Hello, mistress, are you a guest of the Lord? I would be happy to provide you with any services you may require." The silver collar around his neck marks this pretty young boy as a slave. He looks about be around 14-16, though you expect Elves don't age like humans so you aren't certain."Rami?!"Silmera bursts out of the steam, her eyes wide. The elf boy reacts with shock, blushing profusely and dropping back into the water."S-sister?! What are you...turn around!"Silmera spins on her heels. Not the family reunion either of them were expecting, looking at both siblings...Argenta wanders up, her tail swaying. "Nobody else in the room."So, how do you defuse this awkward situation?
>>27215072Start laughing.. "I really don't think either of you have any room to judge the other harshly at this point. You're both pretty though. Rami, would you mind telling me about this tower? Who is in it. How many people there are. What defenses there are. That sort of thing."
>>27215072"Im glad we found him for you Sil. Lets see about getting him safe before going back to work shall we?"Look around for a robe or something. Looks like we're stealing a slave.Do we have any way to remove that coller?Perhaps we could send him to Gemini. He\She should be able to sneak him out.
>>27215072Well, we would prefer to deal with this situation is a safer place so how about this. Give Sil a few minutes to talk to her brother. After that, he stays here as it's safe until after we deal with the situation upstairs. Then we can take him back to our house.
>>27215156>>27215160>>27215173"I really don't think either of you have any room to judge the other harshly at this point. You're both pretty though."The pair blush and smile. They really are alike."Im glad we found him for you Sil. Lets see about getting him safe before going back to work shall we?"Silmera nods. She collects a bathrobe, and hands it to her brother, who immedately pulls it on and hopes out of the bath. Rami looks at you and Argenta, and then at Gemini who has wandered over. He seems completely unphased. "Rami," says Sil, looking distraught, "What happened to you?" Rami just shrugs. "They force-fed me a lot of strange things, and used me as a plaything. The Lord of the Camorans especially enjoyed my usage. However since most of the family is on holiday I've just been pleasuring the guards and maids." The way he says it makes it sound like he's been enjoying himself in Hell as well. You suppose that he's probably in a similar mood to his wild sister.Silmera walks up to her little brother and sweeps him up in a hug, careful not to poke him with her gauntlets and spikes. You and Argenta wait in silence until they pull themselves apart, and watch as Rami wanders over to a locker area and gets changed into a rather revealing outfit of black lace and a see-through negligee. Once his hair is done up in a pair of girly pigtails Rami joins you once again, and Argenta asks if the effeminate little slave can help out. (con't)
>>27215332Rami frowns in thought."The family shouldn't be here today, they're all out, though I didn't see Lord Camoran himself get into the skycar I suppose. The living quarters are at the top, and the majority of the guards are downstairs." You ask him about any humans lately, and Rami looks up in surprise. "Yes..a girl was brought here just last night. She's staying in the guest room. I didn't see her at breakfast because I was servicing someone under the table, but I don't think she's left yet." Silmera is beet red, but you just pat her on the shoulder."So," says Argenta, her armor crinkling as she flexes, "What do we do with this little flower?" Rami points at his collar. "I can't leave while I'm wearing this." You gesture to Argenta and she snaps it into scrap, resulting in a surprised smile from Rami, probably the first genuine one you've seen from him this whole conversation. Rami then turns to you. "I'm following my sister. Please don't try and stop me."How do you respond? Sil looks at you pleadingly.
"It'd be smarter if you weren't near a battle. But fine lets go."
>>27215340"Of course you can come with us Rami. I told your sister I'd help find you, and I'm sure I can find a nice place for you to stay later.Though if we get into combat or know we're going to go into somewhere dangerous I'm going to insist you stay back a bit with Gemini here, you don't exactly seem like a combatant.Do you know anything else? I think there's another human in here, other than the girl."
>>27215340I'm okay is he comes with us. But when there's fighting, he better find a place to hide. You know what, put Gemini in charge of Rami. They can help each other find places to hole up while we fight.
>>27215395>>27215418>>27215462You shake your head. Another weirdo for the harem, you guess. "Okay, fine, you can come with. But stay at the back with Gemini here." You gently bring your shining ESPer into the conversation and gently place their hand in Rami's. Rami looks at his new companion up and down and rests his head on their shoulder. "Pleased to meet you...let's play dress-up later, okay?" Gemini looks a little embarassed. Sil, though, seems distracted. Not really having the time, you put it out of your mind and head up the stairwell once again, asking Rami about another human to no avail...only to arrive just in time for a massive grinning Oni to bite the head off of the poor imp helmsman and leer at you. You shoo Rami and Gemini back into the stairwell and step forward with Argenta, but Silmera puts her hand in front of the pair of you.There's something odd going on with Sil. Her body seems to be pulsing with energy beneath the skin, and the way she's holding her warhammer is rather more composed than before."Revulvael. Let me kill him. Trust me, I need to do this."You can tell she's standing by her words. The Oni rests his club on his shoulder as blood drips down his chin.Will you let her fight?
>>27215568The girl got a thing she's gotta do. Go for it, Sil
>>27215568Sure knock him dead.
>>27215568Sure.Be ready to assist, though.
>>27215072> reach over and examine the trap"I'm sure this must be a shock to you, but we need to know the layout of this tower"
>>27215568"If you lose I am going to be very cross with you.Kill him."
>>27215594>>27215598>>27215606>>27215644"Sure, but if you lose I'm not going to be happy." Silmea smiles, a deranged smile you've never seen from her before. It's kind of frightening. Argenta takes a step back, she can feel Sil's aura. So, it's come to this.The Elf leaps into the air like a puma.Elves are markedly affected by the magical currents and environmental flow of their surroundings. Since Elves have never had Demonseed occur within their bodies, none had ever been exposed to Hell before now outside of a few slaves kept out of sight.The Oni swings his club at her with a snarl, a solid tree-trunk of wood that Sil dodges with a careless flip. She lets out a primal scream and jams her spiked boots into the Oni's naked flesh. The red-skinned Demon cries out and tries to swat her but she's alread on the ground and running behind him.Silmera has been exposed so fully to the fresh air of Hell that something had to be building up inside her. You watch with awe as her muscles ripple and she grows in height. Gone was the slender frame, replaced by a powerhouse of taut flesh rock-hard abs. The corset snaps open and falls away as Sil bends to dodge an overhead swing, and her skin turns mottled and shadowy. Even the Oni realizes something is wrong when his fearsome opponent cackles as she kneecaps him with her hammer. Rami looks on in wonder as his sister takes her first step towards a new destiny. With another cry of mad laughter Sil jams her warhammer deep into the Oni's mouth and twists it into a puddle of gore and broken bone, snapping the haft clean off. Her skin has become ashen-black, almost purple, and the sandy blonde hair is shock-white. Silmera kneels in front of her first kill in her new form, and you walk up and gently under her hair-bun. She breathes out, and stands tall, the look in her eyes that of a predator, an untamed beast...but one that is looking upon her beloved. She's sane again.You've created the first Dark Elf.
Okay, I'm going to take a break to make a sandwich and eat it, possibly 30-40 minutes. You're welcome to chat amongst yourselves or ask questions or whatever.
>>27215789Hug that girl and give her a kiss, gently pull her head down if needed. A long one. And then another couple kisses for good measure. Also rub her ears with one hand."You're beautiful Sil, absolutely gorgeous. How do you feel right now? What's it like being that tall? Can you control yourself if you need to?"We should probably establish if she's stable and so on before we do anything else. Make sure she's not going to flip out unexpectedly. Once that's done we can head upwards, quietly if possible.
>>27215965Also, about how tall/big is she? How much clothing is she still wearing? How is Rami reacting to all of this? She still has pointy rubbable ears, right? How big are her tits? What color are her nipples?
>>27215789We need a bigger apartment. Hell we need an apartment complex to put the people we 'collected' in, so they can work for us and 'work' for us.
>>27216024>Also, about how tall/big is she?A head taller than the average Elf. > How much clothing is she still wearing?Corset fell off, rest is the same.>How is Rami reacting to all of this? Impressed!>She still has pointy rubbable ears, right? Yep.> How big are her tits?Same size.>What color are her nipples?No clue.
>>27215789Eventful day so far. What say we go seduce a nun?Unrelated note, what's sil going tobuse for a weapon?
>>27216103A-are you psychic
>>27207761Ah shit I almost missed this.Reading through.
Anyway, back to it.----------------------You give Sil a cuddle. Her muscles are still throbbing from their first workout but she's calmed down and now strokes your hair tenderly. Rami comes over, grinning and applauding his mighty and powerful sister, which causes the dark-skinned Elf to blush from the attention. Argenta picks up the broken hammer-handle."So what are you going to use for a weapon?" Sil just smiles and lifts the Oni's club with ease. You grin.The group heads on upstairs again, this time entering a new antechamber. Just as you arrive a familiar red-skinned Demon flies through the window, shattering glass and swearing as he fans the flames on his wings. A Ministry skybarge smashes through the opening behind him, and out jump a group of soldiers who point their crossbows at both you and Char Azrael. What's going on?Then, Lord Corosticul steps off the barge, accompanied by several other officials in full battle dress. Corost's face is grave, and he's looking around the room wildly as he approaches you. You give him a salute."Revulvael, so you're here." "Yes, sir," you reply. "I tracked down that human like you asked to this place. I believe both of them are being held on the premises. This causes Corost of blink and look up at the ceiling in alarm. His gnarled old horns shake as he yells for his troops to head on up ASAP.Suddenly, the chamber is filled with rifle fire! You and your group take cover behind a foot-high wall and Corost's people behind a pillar on the far side. It looks like a group of thugs were up on the second floor and well-armed. What should you do? Back off and let the Ministry soldiers handle it or run over to Corost and ask what's going on?
>>27216139Nope I've just gmed for nine years straight. Gets to where you can feel the plot threads coming. Lovely story btw somewhat... lewd but still lovely.
Ask Corost if he wants you to continue to try and apprehend the humans while he deals with the nobles.
>>27216223Back off and let the Ministry guys handle it. We can just get Gemini to give a psychic message to Lord Corost that we'll be looking for another way up so we can rescue the humans.
>>27216223How far away from us is Corost? How much rifle fire is coming towards us? How safe is it to run over to Corost?I would like to talk to him, he should know a few things like the Camoran family being out of town.Char Azrael is inside now, and we aren't getting up the stairs. Would it be possible for us to go up another way?
>>27216264Gemini isn't really at his/her best right now, this place is shielded and that's been interfering.It's worth a shot, and if Gem can get the relevant information out of Corost's head and pass it onto us that'd make life easier. Even better if Gem can leave a message for us.
>>27216279Corost is on the other side of the room, there's pretty heavy fire but it's focused on the soldiers. Char has been handcuffed, sorry, should have mentioned that.I guess you could climb up the outside?
>>27216303Hmm, we had a look at the outside when we were crashing into this place.How bad of a climb would it be? It probably isn't a feasible option, but it's worth checking out.
>>27216314Argenta and Sil could handle it no sweat with people riding on their backs, it'd just take them a while.
>>27216333Longer than we expect this fighting through the opposition to take?
>>27216333Do it. Argenta carying Gemini, Sil carrying her little brother. But first, we'll go up to secure the landing.
>>27216350I couldn't tell you. climbing on the outside might mean you miss an encounter on the inside, it might also mean getting attacked out there. The gun battle will end soon, but you really need to get moving since Corost won't hang around. If he gets to the top first it means no accolades for you as his subordinate.
>>27216370You said that Char is around. He's handcuffed, but he's pretty fast in the skies.Can we promise to put a good word in for him if he flies us up to where we want to go? He doesn't have any loyalty for these people, he's a merc.
>>27216370How durable is the ceiling?
>>27216392Solid Hellforged Stone, warded. You could blast through if you had a few days.>>27216387He's only human-sized though, so he can probably only carry one of you. It's worth a shot if you're happy to leave the others behind.
>>27216412How fast could argenta and sil climb it without carrying anyone?They could climb and we could strike a deal with char
>>27216370In that case we should just try to climb.It's a gamble but staying with him isn't going to speed this up much.Would we be any faster if we wouldn't have to carry Gem and Rami?
>>27216440Alternatively we could take charge here wipe out the soldiers and head on up before Corost does.
>>27216438Slightly slower than running up the stairway but that's not accounting for any mishaps on the way up both inside or out.>>27216440>Would we be any faster if we wouldn't have to carry Gem and Rami?Not much, they're pretty light.
>>27216474In that case, striking a deal with Char and having the other 4 climb after us sounds decent enough.
Okay, so:>>27216503or>>27216460Unless any one has any other ideas?
>>27216474Okay, considering that it's not really faster, we definitely don't want to be attacked while trying to climb, and that this battle should be over quick I don't think it's really worth going for that.Stay behind cover for now, if we can manage to get our Flame Whip far enough to help take out the enemy gunmen do so, yell over to Corost that Camoran family is out of town right now.Once the battle is over task some of the soldiers to hold the stairs from any of the guards who are going to come up after hearing the commotion. And then head up with our group, take the lead and move fast.
>>27216526Lord Camoran isnt gone.And a well placed skull bomb could speed this process immensly.
>>27216526I agree. Also, if it like the thugs have bunkered up and the troops can't break through, skull bomb.
>>27216549Therefore since they are all firing at ourBoss i say we toss a bomb into thier midst and lash any survivors qith a flame whip sil and argenta can stomp any survivors but our group keeps moving
Okay, so, attack them along with the troops, if things look grim blast through with a bomb. How does that sound? Any objections?
>>27216583Sounds good enough.
>>27216583Looks good, and try to avoid getting shot. If we can stay behind cover while still flame whipping their sorry asses do so. Sil and Argenta are probably going to stay back for a lot of this one, charging a position armed with rifles is often a truly bad idea.
>>27216583Youd think there would be a servants stairway. Ah well. Good enough for succubus work.
>>27216608>>27216597>>27216596Ah, fuck it. Let's fight.You tell your compatriots to take cover, and though it pains Sil and Argenta they comply, slinking back into the stairwell. You leap over the wall and dash across the ground in a zig-zag. As you pass Corost, dodging gunfire, he tosses you a small obsidian orb. You stuff it in your skirt pocket and run up the stairs just as a squinty-eyed Demon at the top draws a bead on you. As he does so, a crossbow bolt slams into his skull, shot by an opportunistic soldier from behind you. Good timing. You leap over the dead thug and summon your flame whip, cutting the nearest rifle to shreds and searing the wielder before kicking another in the groin. He goes down with a squeak and you grab his rifle and sling it downstairs- Corost grabs it and empties its' rounds into the other remaining thugs. Waving your impressed companions up, you give your boss a salute and head on up to the next level as the Ministry soldiers start clearing rooms on the upper chamber. As you head up the red-lined spiral staircase, a voice issues forth from your pocket. Slowing to a brisk climb, you pull it out and activate the channeling rune. This is a communications orb. Corost's gnarled, picked face appears."Revulvael, listen! The humans were a diversion. My resources were focused on locking down ports and finding them that we completely neglected the Ministry...Something important was taken from the Vault. It's something that really should have been thrown into the Pit. Whatever you do, make sure the Camorans don't take it out of the box!"You can't believe it."Listen, boss," you say, "The humans were brought up here. If this is where they didn't want attention it doesn't add up. Why bring your distraction right next to the real culprit?" Corost shakes his head."Be that as it may, the item takes priority. You have to stop them from using it."What is he talking about? You should ask what questions you can.
>>27216684What does it look like? Any distinguishing features on the box?
>>27216684Gonna need some info on the item, boss.Unless it's that thing that rends humans down into soul-juice for use in sword forging.
>>27216684"So any level of force is okay so long as they don't open the box?! And the humans are just a sidenote?! What in Hell are they trying to do boss?"
>>27216684"What does the box look like? What is in the box and what will it do if the box is opened? I don't care if it's classified or not, you know that I need to know just in case. Is there any way to stop whatever is going to happen if it's opened?"
>>27216729Also"How the hell did you figure all this out?"
>>27216706>>27216710>>27216729"So any level of force is okay so long as they don't open the box?! And the humans are just a sidenote?! What in Hell are they trying to do boss?"Corost's eyes look down and then away from the surface of the orb. He then seems to move, as if trying to keep away from his soldiers. Then he begins to talk in a whisper."What I am about to tell you is above top secret. Only those in the upper echelons of power know this. I wanted you to be kept in the dark but since you'll probably be inheriting my position you might as well know now."You stay your feet and look around. Nobody is listening. You nod."Aeons ago, when the Trinity of Realms were born, they were connected. Heaven, the Golden World, Hell, the Red World, and Earth, the Green World. They were all connected by a network of dimensional tunnels, the kind we now use to travel to the human world. They are not our creation, but a primal conduit of the universe."You don't understand. Corost continues."They are networks for Souls. Angels, humans, Demons, they all share the same basic essence." "Wait," you say, "What about-""Demonseed are just souls that are mis-aligned, allowing us who have the same affinity to notice them. The truth it that all souls are mutable, but not by normal means."You put two and two together."So the item in the box...isn't normal means.""Correct." Corost sighs. "Something existed before our current civilization. Something that created the Crown. It is a device that allows the user to convert any entity into a Demon. The Demon reflects the personalityof the bearer and often has an affinity with them. You can see what this means."You could. This Crown could turn any Demon into an Emperor should he just take it to Earth for a power trip."You must stop them, and put the Crown back in its box. It's the only way we can preserve the order of our world and the Trinity itself."What do you say?
>>27216813"Aye aye sir." Looks like shit just got real. Hell, it might make Argenta happy. This is a mission a paladin would fall for.
>>27216813"Alrighty, boss."Let's get the team to form up on us then look for this thing.Wouldn't it be fun if we used it on ourselves though?
>>27216813"Understood boss. I'll take care of it. What does it look like? What distinguishes its appearance from other crowns?And it was supposed to be my day off.">>27216875We're already a Demon. I don't think it'd change us.
>>27216840>>27216875"Aye aye, boss!" You salute and crush the orb in your hand before he can say any more. Argenta and Silmera appear behind you, the "kids" riding on their backs. You wave your companions onward. "Forget the humans!" you say as you run, "We have to find a certain crown and make sure the Lord Camoran doesn't use it!" Argenta raises an eyebrow, but nods.Up ahead a pair of Minotaurs guard the final door, a heavy oak slab with a huge brass knocker. Argenta runs ahead and spins, her mace-tipped tail caving in a skull and sending the body slamming into the other surprised guard. Leaping over the two tumbling corpses Silmera smashes the door down with her huge club, Rami flailing on her back. You yourself leap through the cloud of splintered chunks and land in a very large, open room. You look about. A vaulted ceiling looms above, dotted with fancy glowing chandeliers and engravings of famous Demons and Gods. You cast your eye over elegant wooden bookshelves full of ancient tomes beyond reckoning, and towards a raised dais facing a beautiful sunset view of the blood-red sky through glass. Standing on the dais is a very large, fat, froglike Demon with fancy, gilded horns. This must be Lord Camoran, you decide. To the right, bound at wrist and ankles, is a rather distressed young human girl, plump and well-endowed. That must be Annie. And finally, to the left, was a small wooden table surrounded by a pile of smoking, broken pliers, crowbars, and dead manservants. The source of the broken tools and dead hired help was the black box sitting open on the table. In Camoran's hands was a small, silver band, open at one end.The Crown.Camoran turns to look at you in bemusement. You can tell things are about to get serious when an iron porticulis slams down behind you, blocking your companions from entering. Sil and Argenta cry out and start to wail on it, but it'll take a few minutesYou look Camoran in the eye. choose your words carefully.
Whip that crown. Take it out of his hands.I wonder where the paladin is.
>>27217020So I'm guessing he intends to use it on the girl for some reason.Do we know anything about that girl's heritage or something?And does the last part mean that we are supposed to talk to do some pre-battle banter or something?
>>27217108Well, you want to bluff him into spilling any info you can partly because it might be interesting, partly because you need to buy time for your pals to get in.Or you can charge in whip-waving, your choice.
"Oh, good, you're the idiot who wants to put a demon on the throne of a human empire. I was wondering who would be that stupid. You think no one will notice?"
>>27217020Slowly approach him, don't make any fast moves. Keep our eyes open and look around, make sure there aren't any other crown like objects in the area and that what he's holding isn't a decoy."Hello there Lord Camoran. Lovely sunset isn't it? You know, I was going to have my day off today. It was going to be wonderful. But then the call came in and I had to deal with this gigantic mess. Really not how I wanted to spend my day. I hate my boss.So congratulations, you have the Crown. Though otherwise you're not in the best of situations. I doubt you're going to be able to leave the tower with it. The place is surrounded, anyone who tries to fly out will be taken down, the your estate is already being secured and taken. You have one human who you can transform. But honestly my boss is going to take all the credit for this anyways and that one human might be able to kill me if you transform her and I would rather avoid that. I doubt you took her randomly. Why her in specific?So let's work out a deal. You're not going to want to come back here after this. You'll have your nice little kingdom elsewhere full of loyal servants, and I couldn't care less. So you deed me your fancy estate with such a lovely sunset view and I'll help you get out of this place alive and with the Crown. What do you say Lord Camoran?"This is all complete bullshit, just a way to buy time and if possible get close enough to take the crown.
>>27217149Oh, this sounds good.Do the rest of you think this is good?
>>27217186I am fine with this.If he makes any moves with the crown, then we whip it out of his hands.
>>27217186I agree, this sounds pretty good.
>>27217020"Good evening, Lord Camoran. I see you've got a fancy little Crown for yourself. I do hope you're planning not to use it.""Yes, I know what it does. I also know that a newly created demon reflects the person they were. So I'd advise not trying it on the girl: even I'm surprised sometimes after turning several people, and when they turned they weren't terrified. I don't know what turning Annie there will do, but I'm sure neither of us will like the consequences."
>>27217206>>27217149>>27217140Actually I think I can amalgamate these. You all alright with that?
>>27217254I'm good with it.
>>27217186Also, on a not really unrelated note, how long does it take to use Combust one someone and how obvious is it that we're doing it?I'm thinking that a possibility, one I don't particularly want to do if we can avoid it, is to just Combust Annie, it means that Lord Fatass won't have anyone to turn into a Demon. If negotiations look like they're going to go south real fast it might be a good idea to off her with Combust, Skull Bomb, or Flame Whip. >>27217254Go for it.
>>27217254Sounds good to me
>>27217271I wonder if the crown might not make her an angel instead. If their demonic aspect is based on what they were like, and considering the presence of the paladin, she might be so innocent it doesn't 'demonize' her at all....
>>27217289I don't know, I would guess not though. We turned a nun into a Demon.And our boss said that the Demon reflects the personality of the bearer and often has an affinity with them, I doubt that if the Crown is being used by a Demon it'll make someone an Angel, but given how little we know of the Crown I'm not saying it's impossible. Or she might be a Angelic looking Demon.But I don't want this to get to the point where we find out.
>>27217206>>27217149>>27217140"Hello there Lord Camoran. Lovely sunset isn't it? You know, I was going to have my day off today. It was going to be wonderful. But then the call came in and I had to deal with this gigantic mess. Really not how I wanted to spend my day. I hate my boss."The yellow, pallid eyes of the Noble swivel towards you in derision. I see you've got a fancy little Crown for yourself. I do hope you're planning not to use it." you continue, but Camoran steps forward in a threatening manner."Then if you know about it, then you know what power I now posess." he croaks. You feel a bead of sweat on your forehead.""Yes, I know what it does. I also know that you're not going to be able to leave the tower with it," you add carefully, "The place is surrounded, anyone who tries to fly out will be taken down, the your estate is already being secured and taken. You have one human who you can transform. But honestly my boss is going to take all the credit for this anyways and that one human might be able to kill me if you transform her and I would rather avoid that. I doubt you took her randomly. Why her specifically?" Camoran grins."Of course she's random, I needed an unregistered human to test, any slave I buy would be required as census data." He laughs heartily. "I can't be too careful...though it seems I wasn't careful enough, since you Ministry dogs were able to find me." You feel your brow furrow. "But you led us here by taking two humans, one of which headed for his lover, isn't that part of your plan?"Camoran just looks at you in confusion. "What do you mean, tw-aaaaaarrrgAAAAGH!"(cont'd)
>>27217413The glinting sword blade drips with Camoran's ichor. The portly Nobleman falls forwards, Herus' blade sliding free. Herus kicks the crown over to you. It rolls to a stop at your feet. Dumbstruck, you watch as the human, who seems to have climbed the entire tower from the outside runs over to his dear woman and cuts her free. Annie jumps into his arms and kisses him on the cheek, crying tears of joy. Herus turns and nods to you. "I hope you appreciate the assist," he says, grinning with incredibly white and perfect teeth, "Because in return I'd like a trip home." You sigh as Camoran groans in pain, swearing.Suddenly, the dais rocks. On either side of the window emerge two black obsidian pillars. You raise an eyebrow in confused but then suddenly realize what's happening as energy crackles forth. Camoran cries out, confirming your suspicions."The portal?! But I'm not ready to go to the human world yet! Who could possibly have activated it?!" You already know. Through the gate between worlds march several golden armored human warriors decked religious iconography. Scions of The Faith. One of the most powerful militant Holy orders on Earth. This whole thing was a ridiculously convoluted trap! They baited everyone who could be a threat, Corost, the other officials, most of the ministry, you, the Crown, all into one place and dropped an army of zealots on top. You see the runes on their weapons glowing as the porticulis breaks down and your friends and your boss and his men enter. Herus and his girl have disappeared off to an adjoining room and Camoran gets a blessed blade through his throat and dies as a cloud of ashes. You quickly pick up the crown and back behind Argenta and Sil. The battle line has been drawn...what's the plan?
>>27217420Retreat and get the crown away.
... I think its time to retreat. Let hell's warriors handle these warriors. We got what we came for and the humans here won't force Annie and Herus to stay here.
>>27217420...the nuclear option may be a little rude but we are kinda up against an army and we have a crown. I think it might be time to make the numbers a little more even.It's not like we are going to go THROUGH the portal and start converting random humans. This is just dealing with the fact that again, fucking army invading hell.How much do you want to believe that dickass angel from a few missions ago is behind this?Also: Is anyone else a bit worried about> Angels, humans, Demons, they all share the same basic essence.> The truth it that all souls are mutable, but not by normal means.> It is a device that allows the user to convert any entity into a Demon.I get the feeling if a particular angel gets his hands on this we will either be dead or sprouting a shiny halo some time soon. After all, I bet if it can turn people into demons, it can manage angels...at least with some Jury-Rigging.
>>27217420See if bossman wants us to stick around. If not, let's bug out with our crew and the humans.
>>27217420Put the crown on our head, keep a hand on it.Shout at the top of our lungs. "Why hello there boys. I do love a man in uniform.Now I'm pretty sure that whoever is in charge of you goons knows what is going on, what I have on my pretty head, and what I can do with it. You spent an awful lot of work setting this up after all.You see, I'd rather not upset the tenuous balance we have established between us right now which is why I haven't used it yet. And you might be thinking, what if I'm bluffing. The question you should really be asking is what if I'm not bluffing.So if that man in charge of you lot is at all smart you are going to turn around and head on home. We'll see you down here eventually." We start transforming them immediately it'll help the fight, but we'll still be in danger due to there being a large fight right next to us, and we'd lose a good pile of demons. We get them to fuck off back home and everything is peachy keen.
>>27217520>>27217493>>27217485Problem is Corost doesn't want the Crown to leave his sight, you might need to negotiate with him first. The troops are approaching and the stairwell is full of Ministry soldiers. If you want to try it you might need a few meat shields to protect you.
>>27217555I don't think they're here for the crown.They're here to hit a bunch of high ranking members of the Ministry with an army of zealots and murderize them all.
>>27217584I dunno, there was that dickass angel a while back who was very very interested in Demon-Seeds and how to manipulate them.
>>27217584They might not be here for the Crown, but whoever is in charge of this lot ought to know what it can do and would rather avoid having men in the middle of his formation turning into Demons.
>>27217611Still, I kind of doubt that the footsoldiers are care about any of this.They're here to kill demon scum and little else.On a related note, do we know how exactly the crown works?Could we even start transforming people left and right if we wanted to?
>>27217646Oh yeah, I meant 'They' as in the group, not 'they' as in the individual soldiers. They are likely pawns. Well armed, demon hating, blessed pawns.
>>27217646We don't know how it works. We may be able to, but we don't know. But they don't know that. For all they know we can randomly transform people in their group.And I doubt they would send a pile of goons without having someone managing them.
All I will say about the crown is that it can end the battle very easily...or not. There will be consequences. That said if you try and retreat now and your big companions follow the battle line will be broken and things won't go so well for your allies. You can still run though, since you have the crown and you want to survive right?Sure would be convenient if you were the only ranking survivor.
>>27217675And I doubt even more they wouldn't be pprepared for the possibility that we decide to threaten them with the crown.For all we know whoever is in charge of them is under strict order not to listen to the demonic whore.
I'd say we best get the crown back to Corost and tell him about the trap. From there, we might we asked to bring the crown to a safer place, but he needs to know we have secured the crown.
>>27217703If it was just the mooks, I'd recommend running but we have people we actually care about here. Some of which I imagine don't run as well as us.
>>27217721Corost is there in the room. He'd tell you to hold onto it for now.
>>27217703Convenient, but messy as all hell. Lot of paperwork and politicking involved in that conclusion. Less time to be lazy and have sex. And the power vacuum will be annoying to deal with as there will be piles of people bickering and fighting to get up there and probably try to backstab us. Is there anyone in the group of zealots dressed different or who looks like they're in charge? >>27217716And if so we aren't any worse off than if we didn't try to get them to bugger off and they attacked anyways. It's worth a shot, and if need be we can try to start zapping random soldiers of their into demons.>>27217721Our boss is already in the room, he knows about the trap.
>>27217782>Is there anyone in the group of zealots dressed different or who looks like they're in charge? Nope, they're identical shock-troops. The portal is still open, though, maybe the commander is on the other side?
>>27217721Isn't he already in the room anyways?I mean, I wouldn't be opposed to a quick shout of "It's a trap!", but that doesn't really cover how we should react to the fucking army about to attack us.I kind of don't want to leave our boss behind, though.He's been pretty cool until now.Using the crown or even talking about it is a clusterfuck waiting to happen as well.Can you imagine the amount of support the fanatics could get for a crusades after we do something like that?There's a reason its existence is supposed to be a secret.For now I'd guess starting off with a skull bomb and discussing strategy with Corost is a decent enough plan.
Okay, so basically get stuck in for now, worry about the crown later?
>>27217827Yeah, looks like. Lets keep close to Sil and Argenta, so they can protect us. Crown probably is a priority target.
Also, hahahttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27207761/The thread was archived but http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.htmlcheck out the name and tags. Cute!
>>27217872Noticed that as well.The amusing thing is that whoever did that went through the trouble so early that suptg was the first place I saw that this quest was running again.
Can't we destroy the pillars that are creating the portal?Can we do that with a skull bomb?
>>27217841With a cry, battle was joined. Holy blade cut through Demon flesh, obsidian bolt let-fly through blessed steel, and two really big blunt objects (Argenta's tail and Silmera's mace) flew two and fro with reckless abandon, smashing and crumpling as they went.You and Corost fought together in the maelstrom. As he slung whirlwinds of force to send human warriors spinning, you swung your flame whip and beheaded more Scions."Keep a good grip on that Crown!" Corost cries over the din of battle. You hold it tightly in one arm and swing your whip with the other, pulling the sword from a Scion's grip as Argenta punches him into a wall. Suddenly one large warrior is upon you, his blade raised. With a yelp you leap backwards and call for Corost who flings a spiralling energy blast through the surprised mortal's chest. Close.Getting to your feet, you notice that the fighting has drifted over to the entrance you came in from. Additionally, that portal is the only way of knowing where the enemy is coming from on the other side. Perhaps you could get through and take a peek?Sil smashes another soldier into paste and jogs over to you. The dark Elf grins, Rami on her back still. "I bet we can make it through." she says.Will you make a run for the Portal and try to shut it off from the other side, or focus on the enemies here?
>>27217703Ooh, what kind of consequences?
>>27218018Shutting it off from the other side may leave us trapped...but it's also going to make SURE that we don't get a phalanx of angels as the next wave.Either option could be pretty damn bad.
>>27218018Run through the portal with the crown on? Way too risky. We focus on the enemies here.
>>27218037Demons are automatically recalled to Hell after about 12 hours without charms, so you have an out.>>27218022Fun ones.
>>27218052A lot can happen in 12 hours...but I'd almost say it's worth a shot.
>>27218052Is there someone we could hand the crown while we're trying to get to the other side?Maybe Corost?And does SiI count as a demon for this?
>>27218070Nah, Elves are Elves, regardless of skin color.And yeah, you can pass it to him, should be fine.
>>27218052Fun consequences! How delightful. Let's powercrown it.But whatever we do, just don't go through the portal.
>>27218018>Finally caught up!Let's make a run on the Portal, it's such a trap, but fun consequences.
>>27218018Nah, we're keeping the crown AND rushing the gate. It might be our only tool for surviving, as we only have one or two spells left.
>>27218077Then I'd say pass it on to Corost, go through the portal and try to close it from the other side.If we can't find a way back, we return home after 12 hours and even though leaving Sil behind would be kind of a shame, she did originally intend to leave hell sooner or later and it's kind of getting cramped at our place already.Besides, we went through the trouble of creating Dark Elves, so we might as well ensure they spread somehow.
Okay then guys...uh, how shall we reach a consensus? We've got a few posts left and you can debate or roll for it. I've got plenty of time.
>>27218118Yeah. It will return with us if we live and we can hand it over. We are running out into wherever the mobs of blessed mooks come from, I think we should be as well armed as possible.
>>27218018First, we don't take the Crown with us because that'd be a terrible idea.Secondly, we don't take an Elf with us, because she doesn't have an easy way back and if we want to put her in the mortal world let's not drop her in the middle of fucking zealot territory. Also, what happens if we run out of Revives in the mortal world? Do we pop back home?
>>27218118We don't need to survive.We only need to close the gate.The crown on the other hand wouldn't come back with us.Instead, it would end up in the hands of the most powerful group of religious fanatics in existence.And that's not even going into the fact that [i]we are supposed to keep the crown secret.[/i]This is a horrible idea.
>>27218118No, no no no no.Let's say they stab us in the gut with something, take the crown off our pretty little head, and then everything goes bad.Or they dogpile us with goons not killing us and take it off of us. And then stab us a lot.We do not put the crown in their hands like that.
>>27218124If she wants to go home, which honestly why would she? We can put her home somewhere pleasant.What is on the other side of the portal dear anon? If you answered an ARMY FULL OF RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS ARMED TO THE TEETH then you were right!
>>27218187She might try to go through herself.
>>27218137I saw we go in and take everything we have with us. We will go, convert whoever we need, and then destroyed the cult at the core.If the Revie's boss dies, great!
>>27218187Even if her chances at escaping aren't particularly good, the fact remains that leaving her behind would deprive us of a lot of our fire power, since we are pretty much running dry on magic and she's one of our primary combatants.We should still take her with us.If we're really that worried, we can still let her stay close to the gate and have her go back before we shut it down.
>>27218187>ARMY FULL OF RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS ARMED TO THE TEETHYou know what would be delicious? If, somehow, said army of religious zealots armed to the teeth became an army of chaotic demons armed to the tentacles.It solves the problem of Hell being invaded and destroys the cult, possibly forever.
>>27218212Then we tell her not to fucking do it and to hold the line here. If she dies she's dead for good, and if we destroy the portal there is no easy way back for her.Also, what happens if we die up there and run out of Revives? Are we Dead Dead or just back home?>>27218222Aren't particularly good you say? Down right fucking impossible is more like it. She will almost certainly DIE. And she doesn't come back. The other side is probably full of nasty, nasty, enemies, the only reason we can consider it is because we come back home afterwards without any trouble. Though another question to consider.Can the Church force us to stay in their world if they capture us and apply charms to us?
>>27218241>Also, what happens if we die up there and run out of Revives? Are we Dead Dead or just back home?You get forcefully ejected back home. Demons are tethered to their home-realm, basically.
>>27218237If we want to turn Religious Zealots into Demons we can just turn the ones we have right the fuck in front of us into Demons and throw them back at them.
>>27218250But the ones here aren't the core of the army. They're just the frontline soldiers, the canon fodder. The juicy meat is behind the portal, waiting for their time to join battle.
>>27218249Snazzy. That makes life easier. We can pop through, drop two skull bombs in the right place to take the portal out, and then either cut our neck open or get impaled on a spear and pop back home.Obviously we drop the crown off on someone else beforehand because we're not giving these chucklefucks the fucking Crown. >>27218264Look, if these guys get the Crown everything is fucked for us. EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING!! They will quite literally be able to make huge fucking armies of Demons to throw at whatever they want. They can turn any human into a Demon, that's a lot of Demons, a lot more than we have. They could drown us in soldiers. We lose, the entire Demonic race loses if they get it. IT IS GAME OVER! No matter how nice and fun an idea as that is it is not worth the slightest risk of them acquiring the Crown from us.
>>27218137Can we just wait and see what comes through the portal?
>>27218237>What I am about to tell you is above top secret.What part of "What I am about to tell you is above top secret." do you not fucking understand?This is not hard people!Do NOT use the Crown or we are in a LOT of shit.
>>27218289Sure! >>27218285The Crown creates Demons based on the user, who also needs to be a Demon since it was also made by ancient Demons. The intent of the attack is to destroy it, not capture it. Sorry, should have made it clearer.
>>27218137Drop off the crown for sure. Is there any way we can shut off the portal from our side? Chuck a skull bomb through maybe?
>>27218285>Demon-hater fanatics making demonsDo you not see the error in your logic?
Rolled 4>>27218388I think it's probably kept in hell as a sort of M.A.D thing with the angels. They've probably got a superweapon too
>>27218388It's what I would do if I was a religious fanatic and wanted to wipe out Demons.I might not make the best religious fanatic.
Okay, how about we roll for it? Everyone posts what they want and rolls 2D6, highest number wins.
Rolled 3, 6 = 9>>27218509Might as well.Give the Crown to Corost, head through the portal with the entire posse.
Rolled 1, 6 = 7>>27218509I can already see how rolling for this is gonna end badly.Rolling to give crown to Corost and going through the portal to close it from the other side. Sil stays on this side since she can actually die and I'm not sure if we even have a way to get her back to Hell with the portal closed
Rolled 1, 4 = 5>>27218509Give crown to bossman, skullbomb through the portal.
Rolled 4, 1 = 5>>27218509Rush the portal, take the crown, convert everyone.
>>27218509Give the crown to Corost. And go through the portal with Argenta. We set up Skull Bombs on the other side then book it through the portal. Sil, her brother and Gem stays on the hell side of the portal.
Rolled 2, 3 = 5>>27218509Keep the portal, but keep the crown in hand. it might help us win this situation.
Rolled 1, 1 = 2>>27218509Hand the crown off to our boss. Head through the portal. Only bring Demons with us. Once the portal is destroyed Humans and Elves will have no way back and will be killed permanently by Fanatics.I repeat. Do not bring Sil or Rami with. Order them to not go through.I want to fuck the first Dark Elf, not get her permanently KILLED! Do not bring her with.This is a suicide mission, we're closing the portal Demons can get back by dying, people just DIE.
Rolled 5, 6 = 11>>27218577whoops forgot my roll
>>27218509All the decent suggestions will get low rolls, I bet you.
Rolled 4, 6 = 10>>27218577this has my support
>>27218595Yup, you're right.
>>27218570>>27218534No and no. Bringing the elves mean they die forever. Bringing the Crown risks losing it and Hell not having its WMD around. I want to keep our WMD.>>27218593I'm so happy you rolled well.
>>27218595I dunno about that.Okay, so the high rolls want us to leave the crown here with our boss, leave Sil here, and try and get Argenta to follow.Everyone happy with this?
>>27218629My body is ready
>>27218629Can we chuck some bombs through first. Clear the LZ, you know? Maybe shut off the portal if we're lucky as well.
>>27218653What if we need another spell on the other side? We only have like two shots left.
>>27218653Only two spells left and I'd rather use them to seal the portal.
Rolled 4, 1 = 5>>27218653We don't have "some" bombs.We have 2.
>>27218629Yes. If need be order Sil to stay here.If she wants to go to Earth she can take a different portal at a later date.Also, security on the Crown is going to have to be changed. I say the way we do it is in a private chat with our boss. We put a fake Crown in a box, cover it in wards and so on, no one will know the difference, the people guarding it will think it's real, and us and our boss will have secured it somewhere else.Also, as payment for solving everything today I have an idea. We need more room and Lord Caroman is kinda dead and a traitor. I want his house.
>>27218646>>27218642You grit your teeth and make a firm expression. "Sil, stay here." The dark elf's eyes flare up, but then cool off as Rami pats her head gently. She nods, understanding that you don't want to risk her. Then, you turn to Corost as he stamps a human into pulp and hand him the Crown. He looks at you, then cracks a crooked smile."You're an honorable Demon, Revulvael. A lesser subordinate would have booked it." He takes the Crown and shoves it into a pocket on his robe. "Now go, smash some skulls and figure out where this horde is coming from!" You beckon to Argenta to clear you a path. The suit-wearing giant thunders through the enemy formation, her tail tearing pauldron, gauntlet and faces asunder. Then suddenly a trio of Scions block the Portal, their armor featuring red marking that suggest rank, you realize. Argenta's glassy, smoky skin is chipped by an assault of swords, and the giant Demon growls as she simply drags the humans off the dias with a roar. Your way is clear.With a leap into the spinning blue void...you feel yourself land upon another world. Instantly the chill wind cuts deep. You shiver and scowl as you find yourself standing in a cold courtyard of some sort of monastery. Around you are the signs of many heavy footprints, behind you the crackling Portal. And no soldiers in sight. You raise an eyebrow. Was that all of them, then?Suddenly an armored foot hits the frosted dirt in front of you. It's a nun. She's in golden armor and weilding a sword and shield. From the look on her serious face you wager she's very young. But there's something odd about her...an odd pendant in the shape that looks strangely familiar. The nun steps forth. "None shall pass."It looks like it's just you vs her in this empty courtyard. Under the dim, cloudy sky far above.What's the plan?
>>27218796Give her the V.
>>27218796Plan is to use our whip to try and disarm the nun. Aim for the weapon hand, her legs and use our agility to the maximum. Also we need to look for what is powering the portal so we can skull bomb it.
>>27218891Sounds good enough.Anyone else have an idea what's up with the pendant?
>>27218891Lets try not to kill her. If only so we can interrogate her about what's keeping the portal open if we can't work it out ourselves.
>>27218796Does she smell like Demonseed?How easy to destroy does the Portal look?Could you describe the pendant? I wonder where we recognize it from.How obvious is using Combust? Can we do it while talking?I'm thinking that we talk and once we get all the answers we want she catches on fire. Though magic defenses may interfere with this. Don't do it just yet."You're assuming I want to pass. If I just stay right here can we talk? What's a cute young girl like yourself doing all alone in a place like this? And what behind you is so important that you stayed behind to keep people from getting to it?"
>>27218796"Oh we're not looking to pass. Just to turn off the portal. You're free to kill me all you like after that."
>>27218926...how does it compare with the odd ones we got from the demon gunmen?If it's the same, we should totally knock her off balance with 'Oh, I have one JUST like that!' and showing it (Then take her legs out from under her.)
>>27218935This with a backup of this >>27218891Total victory involves acquiring her and exploding the portal. Why shoot for less than total victory?
>>27218935>Does she smell like Demonseed?Nope. She smells super-pure.>How easy to destroy does the Portal look?It doesn't seem to have any physical emitters on this side. >Could you describe the pendant? I wonder where we recognize it from.You just saw some things on the other side that look just like it. Two of them. On either side of the room.>How obvious is using Combust? Can we do it while talking?You need to concentrate for a bit before you cast it, and since she's equipped with runes she's probably warded against it unless you can get her armor off first.
>>27218891If she doesn't immediately attack we should talk first. Easier to get answers when you aren't trying to stab each other.
>>27218960Alright. So the pendant is probably powering the portal, good to know.
>>27218972We are the one under time pressure here.The longer we take, the more reinforcements could arrive for her and the more troops will march though the portal.Trying to have a nice chat with a fanatical zealot shouldn't be our top priority.It's kind of obvious that we need to get our hands on that pendant anyways and, if we do need her information after the battle, we can strip her of protective items and hit her with a seduction spell for interrogation.No matter what we do, we're likely going to have to beat her up before we get to it though.
Why do I expect Corost to take the crown to himself and do exactly what the other demons wnted to do?And this nun, she has no demonseed. If we had th crown, we could have transformed her.
So, fight or chat?
>>27219084We had no idea what was on this side. It wasn't worth the risk.And I think if Corost wanted to use the crown he would've acquired it a while ago.
>>27219132Talk first, probably by asking if we don't want to pass, could we just skip the whole fighting thing.
>>27219132Start with chat, but it's likely we'll have to fight.
>>27219132Considering that she's still young, probably under the impression we want to invade and there are suspiciously few others around, let's just chat for now.
>>27219132Fight. I doubt she'll listen to anything we say. If we can hook a leg with the whip, we can drag her through the portal, and take the pendant there.
Rolled 6, 3 = 9>>27219132chat
>>27219132"Look, honey, I'm not here to pass. I'm here to shut this portal down. I don't know about you, but open portals between Hell and the mortal world are NOT tolerated."
>>27219166>>27219157>>27219140>>27219069"I don't suppose we could talk this over.. I'm not here to invade, just want to talk, maybe convince you to turn off this portal...?"You let your words hang in the air. The warrior nun closes in, her glowing sword drawn. Didn't think so.You jump to the left to escape her first stab, then take a step to the right to dodge the follow-up shield bad. The nun misjudges and her momentum carries her past you, you take the chance to grope her hips with your hand and thrust a fist into the back of her pelvis, causing her to fall to the ground. She may look tough but she's still just a human.Back on her feet, the sister charges once again, and this time you bring out your whip, wrapping the flaming strand around her shield and heating it up. Runes flare and pop and crackle as the nun drops her shield in a cry of alarm, and you finish by tripping her over and kicking the sword out of her hands.The nun looks up, dazed and dizzy as you plant a heel on her chestplate. Will you attempt to question her, or just collect the pendant?
>>27219267Collect the pendant and then give her a smooch and leave
>>27219267Collect the pendant...and her as well. Drag both of them through the portal.
>>27219299Seconded, be careful with the pendant though, we may want something between it an our hand.
>>27219267Question her. Better safe than sorry. This feels like a trap. I mean...ONE rearguard? For a portal to the demon realms? And not a very experienced one at that?
>>27219299Ah so devious. Let's knock her out as well.
So we take the pendant while questioning her, yes?
>>27219402And then drag her with us through the portal, yes.
>>27219327Going with this one.>>27219402Nah, we have her with the pendent attached. No need to grab the potentially holy object with our own hands.
>>27219267I don't like this, it might just be paranoia, but I don't trust it.It feels too easy. They sent in a horde of men and left a single girl, who wasn't really that impressive in combat, to protect this end.Scan our surroundings first, then question her. Ask her why they left her alone to guard this end, how they made the portal, all that jazz.If need be we do have two spells left, if she isn't cooperative we can always Seduce her. Though we may have to deal with her wards first, but that's manageable. >>27219402I'd question before we grab the pendant, it might be a trap, or holy. Also, first things first, make sure we have the Flame Whip wrapped around her neck or something like that so that even if picking up the pendant is a trap of sorts, reinforcements arrive, or her friends come back through the other side of the portal, she can't really capitalize on it as we still have her in an extremely vulnerable position.
Okay, so how about we just question her first, then decide?
>>27219492>>27219517>>27219563You grin at your captive."Why are you the only one guarding this end? Isn't that a bit lax?"She just glares at you."Come on, you just sent a whole team of men into my world, the least you can do is explain where the rest of your fools-""They are not fools!"She's crying."They're my family...The entire order is my family! They went to slay the Devil preparing to destroy our world! My family..."Agh, fuck. What now?
>>27219624Well shit. Odds are they are dead or going to be dead. Let's just bring her in and close the portal. She can be an "assistant" or something.
>>27219624They went a little beyond mission parameters then. Unfortunate, but I suppose that's what you get when you invade hell. I think it's time to bring our prize home.
>>27219624Welp, looks like their mission was actually accomplished before they even arrived.Too bad the holy warriors got all kill crazy.
>>27219624"You've been lied to, unfortunately. We were duped into a trap as well."
>>27219624If it's any consolation, the Demon trying to invade was named Camoran. And the last I saw of him, he was impaled on the blade of a silver sword. He was trying to set himself up as some sort of Demon Emperor, which would have meant civil war back in Hell. If he survives, his torment will be long and creative.So, now I'm going to close this portal. I'll try to give your surviving 'family' a chance to get out before they get sealed in. Hell's not good for mortals to be stuck in.
>>27219710Actually, they WERE the ones who finished him off.Still, I'm pretty sure we get assist credit at least.
>>27219728I'm not big on the clemency angle. After all, they tried to kill us - then she tried to kill us when we wanted to talk.
>>27219624"Sweetheart. There isn't a single Devil in charge of everything, that's not how it works back at home. But if it's any consolation your family did kill a very unpleasant Demon who was planning on invading and causing trouble for everyone, including us.And we don't want to destroy the world. Why would we? That's where all the people and souls are. That'd be like a farmer setting all of his crops on fire. We have a vested interest in keeping Earth around.Now that I answered a few things of yours why don't you answer a few questions of mine. This portal amulet of yours, how does it work? Does it need to be on this side of the portal to keep it open? Do you know what happens if it passes through the portal it keeps open?"And I say take her back with us, she'll freeze to death here and she is rather cute. If need be we can put her through with a note saying that she's ours and to take care of her, crush the amulet, and then stab ourself and come back home.>>27219814It's not like she did a good job at it. And we probably aren't going to be getting any answers out of anyone else who went through, having someone we can ask more about the order would be nice.
>>27219728>>27219726>>27219679>>27219686>>27219679>>27219852(I'll try and amalgamate these)"You've been lied to, unfortunately. We were duped into a trap as well."The girl flinches."There was a Demon trying to invade your world, but he was killed by your fellows. He was just a fat, ugly fool who was trying to set himself up as an emperor, but we of Hell weren't going allow that. Your friends are fighting with ours by accident, it seems."You grin."The longer we talk the more of them die. Come with me and we'll go through, tell them to go back in, and then close it. How does that sound?"The girl nods slightly, but just as she's about to give up, she suddenly is wracked by a seizure. You leap away in alarm as the nun's battered armor shatters and her body glows. The whole room is filled with a blinding white light, causing you to look away in pain.You rub your eyes and look back once the glare has faded, and see a rather fearsome sight. Hovering above the dirt is a naked female figure, clad in blue wrappings with carved golden letters. Her eyes are covered by the strips of scriptual bindings, and her body glows with inner light. Above her bald head floats a golden halo.The Angel hovers towards you, radiating power. You move to the portal but she suddenly dashes in front of it, cutting you off. The pendant jingles around her neck as she floats menacingly towards you.Well now what?
>>27219912Oops, forgot my name.Geez I'm clumsy.
>>27219912Are you SERIOUSLY going to keep an open portal to HELL functioning on the mortal realm?!
>>27219912Hmm, this doesn't look like it will end with a peaceful solution. Can we drag an angel to Hell by any chance? Either way, ready ourselves and fight defensively. We can always chat while we dodge and lash.
"So you want to let them die down there ?"- for us nothing has changed she kills us we go back and don't care. Also i vote we takle her through the portal and see if the crown works on angle, that should also make chiths think twice about messing with us
>>27219912Combust a bitch
>>27219912...well, shit.I think we need to get use a pendent. She was lacking a demon seed, which means she lacked the flux that it would take to make a true change. I wonder if the pendent is empowering, rather than truly transforming.That and if Demons and Angels are truly mirrors, she SHOULD have her mind still behind it, even if a little warped by the change. The sudden desire to fight seems likely the work of the pendent, the only thing she didn't lose.Mind you, I also wonder how many of those warriors also had pendents.Also: Make a comment on her being more lewd than us. We at least wear clothes. She looks like she's a stripper from a library.
>>27219912Well bugger. And she didn't have a Demonseed earlier, that means she either was an Angel, which I think we could have noticed, or there's something seriously strange going on. Looks like we aren't bringing her home, I don't think she likes us very much and she's dangerous enough that it's not worth trying. Besides, if she's anything like us she can easily go back home. We might be able to use the Crown on her, but honestly, not worth the risk of letting her get close to it. Attack with the whip, feint an attack at her head, actually try to hit the pendant, either ripping it off of her and pulling it towards us, destroying it, breaking the chain, something.If we take out the pendant we've done our job.
>>27219912Whip that pendant from her.
Trash the pendent, see if that helps.I bet dickass angel is behind this.
>>27220062Can we really call him a dickass after using people and changing them against their will. Both sides are more than a little dickish in that regard.
>>27220117Not saying we are not dickasses too but he's supposed to hold himself to a higher standard than us. It's not so much about the action, so much as what's expected of you.Also, hypocrisy isn't bad when we do it.
>>27220023At this point we're just speculating though. Let's deal with the pendant, make her submit, and then determine our next steps.
>>27220117Yes. Because he's not us, and he was a complete jerkface to us. Hypocrisy is allowed, we're a demon.And because we're nice about transforming people, sometimes. >>27220156Well, hopefully at least, once the pendant is dealt with the portal will be gone.
>>27220023>>27220018>>27219999>>27219980You open your mouth to say something but she's already in your face! With lightning speed a hand closes around your neck and you feel insane pressure. The Angel is more like a machine than some girl and she lifts you effortlessly into the air. You realize you have to smash the pendant. Concentrating, even as the life is choked out of you, you summon your whip one last time and fling it at her neck. The black pendant shatters! The Portal flickers and fades! You did it... you did...(cont'd)
>>27220180Then do we want to wait till we're across to destroy it? I guess we could stab ourselves, but that seems unnecessay if we can just walk through. I'll admit my opinion is biased though. if she can't teleport out, I do like the idea of having an angel floating behind us on a leash for social events.
>>27220226Wham! The Angel girl is thrown forward, and you are tossed aside as she tumbles. A spiked book comes down hard on the Angel's head, crushing it into golden pulp. You blink in surprise as Silmera helps you up."Sorry, Revie." You sigh as the Angel's corpse disintegrates. That thing was really powerful. Rami hops down onto the cold frosted ground, and you smile and take off your jacket to put around his shivering frame. He gives you a kiss as thanks. Sil looks on around her, then turns to you, her eyes glimmering."In Hell I learnt of pleasure and pain...but most of all I felt the power of emotion, of feeling. My people, the Elves, we have no spark, no blazing lust, no primal yearning for war." She pets her little brother, who nuzzles against her hips. "I...want to grow, to share this wonderful gift with my world." Sil gestures to her ebony skin and powerful muscles. "I and Rami will go forth and spread a new destiny for us...the Black Elves!"You frown and suggest "Dark Elves". Sil agrees readily, and Rami climbs upon her shoulders. Now, there was one more thing to do.You head up from the abandoned monastery's courtyard, up word stone steps. The cold of the winter snow flurries against you. As the crumbling walls move aside, you find yourself on a cold landing looking out at something amazing. A huge city, decked out in Religious iconography, surrounded by fortress-monasteries and flags of hundreds of orders. Everywhere you look you see troops of Scions and revelling pilgrims. An entire army of humans ready to invade your world.Sil and Rami join you, and you wait with them until the morning, and see them off on their quest to found a new Elf nation. Then you feel yourself being pulled back home...(epilogue incoming)
>>27220226Well, that solves that!
>>27220238Cool as shit, thanks OP.
>>27220238>Wham! The Angel girl is thrown forward, and you are tossed aside as she tumbles. A spiked book comes down hard on the Angel's head, crushing it into golden pulp.Awww...
>>27220140>>27220180I think the whole demonseed/angelseed goes to help show both sides aren't so different. Maybe the angels are like Diablo/darksiders angels and are justifying their actions like we are. (I really don't mind because all the tasty harem members we got)
>>27220238Damn. I was hoping to bring them home and play with them before they went off. Well at least the Dark Elves shall spread, rape, and pillage. Good times.I hope we get Caroman's house for this. We totally deserve it.>>27220270Yeah, but they're jerks because they aren't us! Hypocrisy is fun.I know, we're both just using Earth as a place to get souls for population and power. But we're totally cooler than them.
>>27220270That's true, and we do still have to finish up with Shezra.
>>27220238That huge army. We should have brought the crown and converted them. It would help Hell in the future.
>>27220368If by "help" you mean "fuck up the status quo so much it isn't even funny and definitely land is deep, deep shit with pretty much all of our superiors" then, yes, it would have.
>>27220238If she's an angel, will she respawn back in heaven I wonder.
>>27220368Would have been nice but we don't know what the crown does to the user.
A few days later..."So, in your report...""Yes?"Corosticul, Lord of the Ministry, frowned. Revulvael was a star pupil of his. She stood before him now, decked out in uniform, magenta hair well-combed and lipstick applied. Ever since her mother had dropped her on his doorstep the elderly Demon had taken a keen liking to his every curious student. But..."In the report, you say that the nun had no taint of Demonseed. Yet in the events in the walled-city you saw for yourself that Demonseed and Angelseed are the same." Corost straightened his reading glasses. "How do you explain this?""Well, I have a theory." Revulvael straightened and began to talk in her velvet voice. "You informed me earlier that the Crown is a device that can turn anyone into a Demon, regardless of alignment or Seed." Corost nodded. "Well, in that case a target of the Crown would not be detectable by someone with affinity with Demons either." Corost closed his eyes. She knew."So," he finished for her, "It stands to reason that there's an equivalent to the Crown in the hands of Heaven.""Yes." Revulvael looked at her mentor in the eye. Corost sighed and beckoned her away from the stuffy office and down the corridor towards the Council Chamber."The Ministry reached the same conclusion. We are now facing a possible exponential increase in Angels. What's more, they are believed to be connected with the attack on Camoran's tower. Heaven is hostile."The pair turned a corridor. Corost swallowed his bile as they reached the open chamber, and closed his eyes as Revulvael gaped at the sight.
>>27220368> It would help Hell in the future.Pretty sure we would have ended up causing a civil war in Hell.
>>27220498Surrounding them were dignitaries from every section of Ashfall's government. Military leaders, rich noblemen, Snakelike priestesses, Giant Cacodaemons, Skeleton Kings, and the Grand High Archlord himself, Lord Satan, who was currently snoring away peacefully."Agent Revulvael of The Soul Ministry."Revulvael turned to her mentor."Because of your bravery, quick-thinking, unorthodox skills, knowledge of forbidden secrets and good judgement in the field, as well as the fact that you have an intimate knowledge of our foe..."Corost smiled mirthlessly."We, the Council of Hell, dub your Lady Revulvael, with the title of Green Empress."Revulvael felt light-headed. Corost beckoned her forward, and the young Succubus complied. "Your task, which you must accept...is to bear this."Corost pulled the Crown from his tattered robes. Revulvael's eyes bulged."To fight Heaven on Earth, we must create Hell on Earth. You are charged with the sacred duty of infiltrating the Scion City and converting it utterly into a bastion of Demonhood in order to counter the Angels. This will become our Endgame. Hell will not allow Heaven to rule the Trinity."Corost looked his precious protege in the eye. He felt sadness and shame at having forced this upon her, but Revulvael just smiled. It wasn't a false one, just a simple, accepting, loving smile. "Do you accept this role?""I do."The silver band was lowered, and a new age was about to begin.THE END FOR NOW
>>27220512Hooray!We are the great corruptor!
>>27220512>Green EmpressWell.Holy shit.
>>27220512And now we move to bigger digs.
>>27220512We are going to conquer the shit out of everything. Subtly. We've got a pretty large job ahead of us.We should probably work out a way to hide our tiny wings and tiny horns first and foremost. It just seems like a good thing to have. As well as improving our other magic if possible, we may need to step everything up a notch. Because it'd be really nice if we could use Seduce and Combust on Angels instead of just Humans.There are however two very important questions. Did we get a bigger pad? Like Lord Camoran's old house. Secondly, do we still get days off? Because we need days that we spend cuddling with our harem, having kinky sex, and sleeping in.
>>27220512This is going to be fucking awesome.Am I correct in the assumption that we were basically chosen for this because unlike any other bigs hot demon we'd be creating people with infiltrator skillsets similar to ours?
So yeah, that's a wrap on part 2 of quest 4. Thanks for playing! Sorry if it dragged a bit.Anyway, I'm dead tired right now so I can't write a bonus event story at this moment Buuuuuutsince I have a twitter, I can write it tomorrow and link to it on the twitter!So, pick a subject:>Revulvael, Rami and Sil in the abandoned monastery before dawn>Revulvael bossing Shezra around with her new rank and title>Gepette plays with anonAnd I'll get right on it after I rest up.Also the thread is listed on the archives as "stupid fetish quest" or something, but it doesn't really matter as long as I link directly to it from the FAQ.Again, thanks so much for playing along, this is really helping me as a writer. If you have any questions feel free to fire away.
>>27220732>No ArgentaI'll go with the GepetteThanks for running, OP.
>>27220732>Revulvael, Rami and Sil in the abandoned monastery before dawn
>>27220732>>Revulvael bossing Shezra around with her new rank and titleWhat's your twitter?
>>27220732>this is really helping me as a writerYou need it, too. Your descriptions are all painfully flat. Even the transformations and aftermaths which are so clearly your fetish have little life to them.
>>27220732>Revulvael bossing Shezra around with her new rank and titleI'm in for the comic relief of this one, though the first option would probably be sweet and ncie as well. And also might help further the Black Elf agenda.
>>27220732>Revulvael bossing Shezra around with her new rank and titleTime to kick it, doggystyle
Sil is leaving, we should give her a send off.As an aside OP, what would have happened if we'd gone for the amulet before we tried talking?
Everyone likes brown elves.
>>27221031Well, you would have had the opportunity to get away from her and nearer to the portal before she turned, which meant that you could then have had the chance to jump through and bait her after you and have the others on the other side finish her off. Then Sil would have had to convince you to let her go back through again, and if you refused she'd stay with you permanently in Hell.
Okay, so one for Gepette, four for Elves, three for Shezra.Looks like it'll be Elves unless there's some latecomers.
>>27221116>Everyone likes brown elves.Shes a drow, not brown.
>>27221116While this is true, Sil is black. Not brown.
>>27221487We'll still be seeing Shezra later in the quest, right?
>>27221689Dunno, depends on if we come back to Hell or not.To be honest I haven't planned that far ahead.
>>27221718I really want to boss her around a bit, I change my vote from Elves to her.We have bigger odds of meeting the Elves if they are in the mortal world
Anyway, threads nearly dead, and I need sleep. Goodnight, thanks for playing, I'll check the archive in the morning and do whatever is on top. If it's equal I'll flip a coin!Don't forget to pick up the Twitter! Bye!
