You are Shee Hyul, rebel leader, psychic and Reunited. Your world is ruled by inhuman creatures and this has gone on far too long, it’s time to fight back.Character Sheet http://pastebin.com/fYSgcZdERules http://pastebin.com/LEEi5A3uArchives https://archive.moe/tg/search/username/Pally/type/op/And http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psychic%20Rebel%20QuestSetting http://pastebin.com/95D5RNhPBusiness http://pastebin.com/NwspZmKwAllies http://pastebin.com/yVgtiFeuAlly Powers http://pastebin.com/Xm6UGDyXQM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQMQM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQMYou get up the next morning and head upstairs to see how Kaelyn enjoyed her night in your Realm. As you enter the bright sun greets you, ah yeah, maybe you should make a sun that rises and sets rather than one that is full glare all the time. You walk around the beach house looking for Kaelyn and calling her name. You don’t find her there, could something have happened to her?You head outside “Kaelyn? Kae? Where are you?”“Over here!” you hear her call and you head around the front of the house only to see Kaelyn...hitting pieces of furniture she’s dragged out onto the beach.Kaelyn is wearing a loose t-shirt and tight shorts and is doing some sort of exercises: throwing combinations of punches and kicks at couches and tables stood on end, the wood splintering under her blows as she assails them, dodges imaginary blows and then returns to pummelling the poor wood.You lean against the wall of the house, fold your arms and say “So I make you all of this, and you smash it to pieces; that’s gratitude.”“What, you don’t have a morning workout?” says Kaelyn, after smashing the last intact table to fragments with a powerful kick, damn she has some power in those lithe legs that just go on and on and on up to those tight little shorts that wait, did she just ask you a question?
“Not really much time for it in Dust Town” you say “morning was wake up, wash, breakfast then go to work.” How long ago that already seems...“Well, you’re not in Dust Town any more” says Kaelyn smiling at you and gesturing at the ocean “join me for a swim?”“Actually” you say as she heads for the water, pulling off her t-shirt “We were all going to get together and go back to the facility, Dev wants something to do and I have a warmech that needs repairing and upgrading, Rainya wants to get stronger and I uh...I...uh...”Kaelyn has stripped not only her t-shirt off but her shorts too, and apparently that was all she was wearing. She walks up atop a rock and in one smooth motion dives into the sea. She surfaces and then turns around, looking at you, just her head and shoulders visible “You don’t want to come swimming?” she asks. You walk out onto the rock and look down at her.“I don’t know how” you admit, growing up in the Hive, and then living in a dusty desert, there wasn’t much chance to learn. With your gifts you don’t think deep water is scary or dangerous to you but you don’t actually know how to swim, not properly anyway.“C’mon!” says Kaelyn, splashing at you playfully “I’ll hold you so you don’t drown.” You can see her body beneath the water, the ocean so clear you can almost see every detail. A swim would be nice, Kaes wet naked body pressed up against yours and-“We’ve got a lot to do today” you say, forcing your mind away from...away. Anyway “Perhaps another time” you say with just a little regret.“Alright” says Kaelyn “I’ll just be a few minutes and then I’ll come down. Or do you want to stay and watch?” In your mind you see a very detailed image of Kaelyn walking up out of the waves, wearing nothing but seawater and a smile.“I need to get some stuff” you say weakly “I’ll be downstairs when you’re ready.”
“Ok” says Kaelyn, swimming out across the bay you have created. You head back downstairs, cursing your hormones. You’re with Rainya dammit, even if she is being...difficult...right now, you shouldn’t have a wandering eye. You notice one of your tentacles has extended and is reaching plaintively back behind you, in the direction of the swimming Kaelyn “Don’t you dare” you growl at it, retracting it into your body.---At the facility, you get Dev st up in the warmech repair bay, he’s supposed to be at work today but according to him he can take one day off without a problem. Watching him expertly take the damaged warmech apart you wonder if just welding is using his talents correctly, he could get a much better job if he wanted.Still, a problem for another day. You, Rainya, Kaelyn and Lirael find a gym with all sorts of equipment, including practise mats and a punching bag. After a short warm-up you say to Rainya “So, if you want to get stronger, why not try fighting Lirael, as we discussed?” You’re all wearing light, loose clothing to make moving easy.Rainya gives you an eager look “You’re on!” she says “Lirael, whenever you’re ready.”“What?” says Lirael, giving you a disbelieving look “Why am I fighting Rainya?”“Because” you say “Rainya wants to get stronger, and I think you’re the best person for her to test herself against.” And, you add to yourself, maybe getting her ass kicked by a little girl will convince her to put this power level bullshit behind her.“But I don’t want to hurt her!” complains Lirael as Rainya, just one of her for now, takes up position on the mat and motions for Lirael to join her.“So don’t hit her hard” you say “Just keep it light.”“Easy for you to say” grumbles Lirael, walking out onto the mat as you and Kae sit side by side on a bench nearby.
Lirael and Rainya put on gloves and padding and start sparring, after a minute Rainya stops “Lirael” she says, “you’re not using your strength are you?” Both of them are clearly amateurs, with no real skill in fighting with fists, maybe you should start them on basic punching drills first?“No” admits Lirael “Rainya I don’t want to hurt you.”“I can take it” says Rainya “the whole point of this is for me to get stronger and tougher, don’t go easy on me.”“Ok...” says Lirael, uncertainly, focusing for a few seconds, then she darts for Rainya impossibly fast, her fist slamming into Rainyas midsection. Rainya folds up, and slowly falls over.“Rainya! Rainya are you ok?” asks Lirael, kneeling down next to her “Rainya please be ok!”“I’m fine...I just....wasn’t ready...”wheezes Rainya, clambering slowly to her feet “That’s what I’m talking about, again Lirael.”“Umm, ok...” says Lirael. ---Ten minutes later there are four groaning Rainyas lying on the mat and Lirael is stalking over to you, pulling off her pads and gloves off and grumbling “This sucks Shee, I don’t want to hurt Rainya any more, can we do something else?”The Rainyas pull each other to their feet, despite their obvious pain, Rainya is one stubborn girl, you don’t know if you should admire her or pity her for that.“No” says Rainya “We’re not done yet, Lirael, again!”Her back to Rainya, Lirael gives you an unhappy look “Do I have to?” she asks.Kaelyn stands “I’ll fight you Rainya” she says.Your response?>Say nothing, just watch>Great idea Kaelyn, go for it>Lirael, back on the mat please>Rainya, I shall be your opponent>Other (what?)
>>38102359>he’s supposed to be at work todayWhat is his new job anyway? We were never told.
>>38102377>Rainya, I shall be your opponent
>>38102377>Rainya, I shall be your opponentI do not trust Kae to be able to hold back.
>>38102359>he’s supposed to be at work today but according to him he can take one day off without a problemI thought he got fired from his job?
>>38102377>Rainya, I shall be your opponentLooking at Kaes charsheet, while the Metanatural Stats are really strong, she is nowhere near Shees level.
>>38102412He was looking for a new job and a place to sleep, so there is that.He probably just didn't want to be paid by us, he's stubborn like that.
>>38102384>>38102412Thanks for spotting, will include in an update
>>38102377>Rainya, I shall be your opponentKae has a bit more skill than Rainya's ready to handle right now.
>>38102413If you're just looking at raw stats, yeah. Dragon Style is pretty damn powerful, though.
>>38102377>Great idea Kaelyn, go for it
>>38102436It is, but Shee got a lot of really powerful abilities too.Kaes main strength is her massive DR.
>>38102423Could you give us a little spoiler on which kinds of Champion powers would give Rainya a PE pool?
>>38102470The Mystic ones.Currently Rainya seems determined to go full Warrior.
>>38102486Clearly that isn't working out for her so well.Getting a PE pool to learn Kaes martial arts would probably help her a lot in bridging the gap here.
Just throwing this out there for future xp spending stuff later on since I might not be here later on.>Artifice 2 unlocks touch-range technomancy>Shee can extend tentacles out of tentacles to touch things up to 72ft away from herSo we could shoot out tentacles to latch on to enemy mechs or vehicles or whatever and take them over. It'd also (probably) be pretty good for dealing with the thing in the armor vault that shoots us every time we open the door. Just snake a few really long tentacles into the room and try to tag it before it blasts all of them.Also apparently Artifice + Corruption could lead to some kind of auto-hacking aura thing, which I thought was pretty nifty.
>>38102511We already knew this?This kind of thing is why we got Artifice at all way back.
So, should we start expanding soon or something?
Maybe we should let her get beaten up by Kae too, and then remind her we could kill Kae and Lirael at the same time in a single moment.Maybe then she will get it isn't really about how good they individually are.
>>38102511 Why not Artifice + Corruption + Impossibility. It could make programs that open a door for certain people without the needed hardware for it.
>>38102562What do you mean?
>>38102571Take over some crime organisation for example.
>>38102592The point would be?
>>38102592We have enough to do already and no real impetus to do that. Opposed.
“I’ll fight you Rainya” you say, walking over and putting on the gloves, though not the pads. Rainya gets a mulish expression on her face as you approach “Don’t go easy on me” she says “I can handle it.”“First you need some skills” you say “Stand more like this” you demonstrate.“Like this?” says Rainya, trying to copy you.“Not bad” you say “Hands higher, feet closer together, good, like that. Now, come at me.”Rainya starts launching punches at you, which you block, or simply sway out of the range of. You take a few swings at her, slower and weaker than your full power, to get her used to seeing the blows before they’re coming, you telegraph the blows as much as possible.“You’re not taking this seriously” accuses Rainya.“Why do you think that?” you ask.“You’re not punching hard!” she says, emphasising her words with a hard shot to your midsection, which you brush away. “And” she continues “You’re only using your hands, not your tentacles.”“And I’m only fighting one of you” you point out, motioning at the three Rainyas sat down, watching you fight.Rainya nods in acknowledgement “Ok” she says “If I fight you with all of me, will you do the same?”Your response?>No, lets focus on the basic skills for now>You’re on!>Actually, you take a break, I’m going to fight (who?)>You can fight someone else instead (who?)>Other (what?)
>>38102592We really don't need to add managing a criminal empire to the ever expanding list of Shee's responsibilities.
>>38102592I'm not sure organised kneecapping of occasionally innocent people is Shee's strong side
>>38102592We already have our restaurant, which is filled with worshippers of the Five and people with criminal contacts, I rather interact with them a bit more and expand our operations from here than add yet another thing to do.>>38102616>I will fight you with all my tentacles. Beat that, before you challenge all of me.
>>38102616>You’re on!Yeah, the tentacles are not going to be completely combat oriented.
>>38102616>No, lets focus on the basic skills for nowThis is supposed to be a lesson, not just a beatdown.
>>38102639>>38102638>>38102636>>38102620inb4 'no bottom lefty, no!'
>>38102652>Tentacles developing personalities
>>38102616Pally, did you update the Charsheets based on AAs purchase?
What do people think about showing her Ruler of Shadows just to really emphasize just how bullshit the Reunited can be? I'm not saying to fight her with it, just show her and say that random shit like this getting pulled out of nowhere is why we were so worried about what Donni was going to do.
>>38102672>What do people think about showing her Ruler of Shadows just to really emphasize just how bullshit the Reunited can be?Except that Ruler of Shadow and the like isn't the actually dangerous shit, because it basically telegraphs "I'm gonna get serious".Its stuff that isn't visible until it hits you, which we are afraid of.Just ask Donni.
>>38102672No, lets save it for now.
>>38102672I dunno. That scared even Kae pretty badly. But using some of our other abilities to show her what kind of tricks they might pull is probably a good idea.
>>38102671Yes, though if you spot anything missing, please let me know
>>38102671Ego-Humbling Strike would be pretty good now, yes. But I don't think he did.Its missing the all of the purchases.
>>38102709Ego-Humbling Strike is missing, the purchase is noted but the ability doesn't show up anywhere.Oceanic Dream should be Rank 2.
>>38102709It still say 14 unspent XP. Is that right? I didn't think it was.
“You’re on!” you say, all of your tentacles extending as the four Rainyas surround you.You’re in a fight with Rainya, actions?>Attack (how?)>Use Power (what?)>Teasing grope>Other (what?)BattlefieldRainya (4)>>38102728>>38102742Should be fixed now, my apologies, and thanks for spotting
>>38102776>Attack (Grapple 2, blows 2)
>>38102776>Enhance Ability(Strength)>Grab and Pull(All Rainyas)>Teasing Grope
>>38102782Teasing might not be the best approach when she wants us to be more serious
>>38102776>Enhance Strength>Hit Rainyas(3)>Grapple and Teasing Grope 1 Rainya
>>38102791It drives the point home, if she can get free from them, she can punch us for it.We are not fighting her "serious" anyway.She'd be dead in the blink of an eye if we were.
In attacks/weapons what's second roll for?
>>38102801With only out tentacles (no other powers), she might hold her own for a while.
>>38102776>>38102782Changing to this>>38102793Might be better to give a her a feeling for our situation against a strong opponent with weaker allies around.
>>38102776I'm thinking we make this the most frustrating fight possible.>Use Power (what?)Blink + Resilient Fluid BodyThen we flit around dodging or even just taking hits which will be completely shrugged off, and fling a Rainya into another Rainya every once in a while.
She's really being an idiot with all of this. We'd have done the same thing in that fight had it been anyone else in her position.
>>38102814Mking it "frustrating" is kind of against the point. We want to show her how overwhelming the enmies power can be.
>>38102776>Attack (Area Lash)
>>38102776>>38102793Seconding>>38102811She would survive maybe 2-3 rounds of Area Lash.
>>38102809First roll is to hit, second roll is damage.>>38102822Her feelings are understandable, if not fully justified. NPCs are not coldly logical beings all the time, as it should be.
ok, please roll 3d20, in order: Strength, hitting 3 Rainyas and groping
Rolled 3, 16, 1 = 20 (3d20)>>38102866
Rolled 14, 8, 6 = 28 (3d20)>>38102866
Rolled 11, 15, 20 = 46 (3d20)>>38102866
Rolled 14, 3, 15 = 32 (3d20)>>38102866I assume we can do non-lethal damage?
>>38102853I'm mostly amused about this situation and the difference to nearly the same conversations with Jal.Maybe Rainya would feel better if we gave her tentacles too?
>>38102853Yeah they're understandable, but she should realize that Shee's main responsibility, as a leader and as a friend, is to make sure everyone survives.
Rolled 17, 9, 13 = 39 (3d20)>>38102915hnnng, so much magical realm please yesThat said, she would probably approve and improve
>>38102915>>38102939We'd need to level Blood control then.
>>38102915We're the ones with the tentacles in this relationshipWhat she needs is the Baalzamon Tail.
>>38102915Mystical Martial Arts would be a better way to improve her.
>>38102934Thats not really the issue, I think. She does get that.But she doesn't want to feel helpless, what she wanted to hear was a clear "you have to do X, to be counted in the big league", except there is no X because the big league has dozens of weird shit abilities.>>38102963Those aren't mutually exclusive, even though there are other mutations that would help her more than tentacles would.
>>38102977>because the big league has dozens of weird shit abilitiesSo we need to get her to worship the Five too?Maybe we could make a deal with jagga, she does seem to be his kind of girl.
>>38102987>So we need to get her to worship the Five too?I wouldn't be surprised if she already does actually.Has anyone seen our prayer books lately?>>38102996Wouldn't be a terrible thing, actually.Depends on the specifics, of course. But there is a lot she could get from it.
Rolled 2, 18, 8 = 28 (3d20)>>38103008We should ask her about her believes
>>38102977I'm not sure she's really going to be able to scale with the rest of the team going forward and her asking us to put her at even more risk will likely just end up getting her killed.
>>38103020>I'm not sure she's really going to be able to scale with the rest of the team going forwardEnsuring that se will, is pretty much our current concern.There are several things we can do to let her scale up better.
>>38102987Wouldn't we eventually have to fight her? It'd also make her, weak as she is, a bigger target for other avatars.
>>38103020We could always ask Ichor for a way to help us better ensure our family doesn't die.I don't even know why I'm making this post. There's maybe 2 or 3 players that would even consider actively asking the Five for help with something anymore.
>>38103031>Wouldn't we eventually have to fight her?Why would we?We only need to fight Reunited, other worshippers can get gifts too. Its just not as easy.But we can make a deal with the Gods, similar to what the guy who owned the restaurant did.
>>38103045I'm with you bro, the favour few
>>38103045Blood control 3 infectious form. gift her some abilities and have kae teach her magic martial arts.>>38103031Worshippers with boons=/= reunited.
>>38103031That's not how it works. Reunited are the ones in the death match. Regular followers, even ones granted boons, do not deathmatch.Did you forget how our restaurant was acquired through the King of Hell's church? All of the top employees are worshipers of the Five (well, the best one of the Five)
>>38103045Its all a matter of necessity or not.If we could get a good deal with jagga to enhance Rainya, that'd be pretty sweet.The main reason I'm considering this is, that we can't give transformation gifts with Infectious Form, because others couldn't transform back then. And besides those, there aren't a lot of useful Mutations to hand out.So getting a transformation gift directly from the Five would be better.I still want to ask Ichor about relationship advice one of these days.
>>38103054I think we should spend a little more time trying to improve her champion abilities before just jumping straight to asking Jag for a favor.
>>38103092Me too, I would really wanna hear them, but not so sure we should follow them tho.
>>38103092>spoiler"Fuck her right in the pussy"
>>38103092>I still want to ask Ichor about relationship advice one of these days."Knock her up."
>>38103102It doesn't hurt to ask if its possible.Champion powers aren't that great, and she is rather limited in her ability to acquire them.
>>38103122only because we don't really challenge her
As you wait for Rainya to attack, you boost your strength, you want to show her how far she has to go before she can challenge you after all.The four Rainyas charge you at once, well at least she’s managing a coordinated assault this time. Before they even get close you lash out with your tentacles, knocking three of them back, but pulling your blows enough not to hurt them seriously. The fourth one you grab with a pair of tentacles, lifting her up in the air, wrists and ankles pinned together as another pair of tentacles slide around her body, hugging her loose clothing tight against her skin, running all over her body, rubbing in just the right places. You can feel Rainyas body respond, torn between being ready for a fight, or getting ready for something else. The other three Rainyas approach again “Really Shee” says one, sounding irritated “I thought you were taking me seriously.”“I am” you say “attack me.” The three launch themselves at you and using your tentacles you easily block all of their attacks, meanwhile you flip the other Rainya, the one suspended in air by your tentacles, upside down and bring her head level with yours, whispering in her ear “The point I’m trying to make” you say, even as you block her other bodies attacks “Is how dangerous this can be, how tough the foes are that we face – foes that could kill even me if I’m not careful.”“So help me!” says Rainya, struggling against your grip “I want to help you, I don’t want to be just someone you protect, I want to be someone you respect, someone you can rely on, what do I need to do? Should I start following Jagganatha, maybe? What else can I do?”
We could go find some Serec and then have her fight it in a really drawn-out battle in an attempt to have her develop psychic powers.
>>38103008If she gets to shape Gifts like we do...still no since her Willpower is too low for now.>>38103020She has potential access to all four Champion bloodlines, her scaling is not the biggest concern we should have right now.>>38103045The reason most of us aren't immediately for it is that there are almost always better options compared to asking them, and when there aren't we consider it.Whining isn't a good arguing strategy.>>38103092We can give her physical mutations that *aren't* full-on transformations, which can then be hidden by granting her disguise abilities. We just need to get some more of those. It would be better to ask for such Gifts for ourselves and then grant them to Rainya.>>38103122>Champion powers aren't that greatLiterally the same thing as Might and Endurance of Jaggantha, but without the favor limit. I doubt these are even all of the Warrior abilities.

>>38103197No it isn't, because shaping is not a thing she does anyway. Thats not how gifts usually work for followers.Pay fucking attention.

>>38103214>The whiniest bitch.I don't see how asking people to pay attention to the story is "whiny".He is completly right, you would know these things if you would bother to actually read.
>>38103197Shaping is for psis and Reunited not followers anon.Loyal followers get gifts without shapping, reunited don't as they are demigods, they need to do it on their own.
>>38103140You're a Champion with all four bloodlines, I think we can think of something.We can strive to access them together
I want Rainya to get that cool bow thing from back a while ago when we fought Tom. That was cool.
>>38103140>Lets focus on fighting skills>Kae, ideas?>I might be able to give you some powers, I think>N>Up to tentacles
>>38103254I would have hoped you people would have at least a bit of restraint in your samefagging, to not put it over IP limit.
>>38103230To be fair, the ruleset for this quest is fairly cumbersome and subject to regular change. We even have essentially a second QM just to help make sense of it all.
>>38103268>Only one side samefagsConfirmed for samefag.
>>38103253Oh god yes, that would be great. That way she would also be a little way away from the close range battle most of the time
>>38103268But you are the one samefagging.
If the Five grant powers based on their own Aspects, why don't we try to grant something to Rainya based on our own?Yeah, we're not as strong as the Five, but we're also not spreading ourself across billions of miles of space like they are to fund their multi-millenia deathmatch extravaganza. Maybe we could handle one person?Shoulda claimed the chaoswell to fuel ourself.
>>38103269Its not cumbersome at all.It takes minimum reading to get through it, and more importantly that factoid is a story fact, and has nothing to do with the rules.>>38103279>>38103271Several non-Jagga votes are literal duplicates anon.
So fighting skills, plus ask Kae, suggest talking to Jagganatha and maybe you can give her powers yourself, ok, writing.
>>38103282That would be pretty cool if it's possible.
>>38103282Don't have that power yet.Might get it at some point, though. Considering its the last Charm in the Devil Tiger ascension.
>>38103290>suggest talking to JagganathaI didn't include that deliberately, and more people left it out than in.
I always thought Jagganatha was female. I dunno why, must be because the name ends with an A
>>38103269>To be fair, the ruleset for this quest is fairly cumbersome and subject to regular change.Not really? Its pretty easy to see through.There is quite a bit of it, but its maybe a half ahour of reading.>>38103303It costs us nothing to talk about it.
>>38103314>It costs us nothing to talk about it.Doesn't change that it isn't what I voted for and *is* what I voted against.
>>38103290Yes, but not giving powers.
I wonder if one of the Baalzi gifts would be to let us form and control a shadow ghost puppet thingy. That'd be a neat one.
>>38103290>>38103303Agreed. I don't want to ask Jagganatha. If I did I'd have included it in my vote.
>>38103329It doesn't say we do that right now. It says we mention it.We never have to actually talk to him about it.I have no idea why you are so opposed to it, considering there is literally no downside.
>>38103314>It costs us nothing to talk about it.>Implying I care about the cost>Implying I didn't vote against it just to avoid it coming up againYou don't get to subvert the voting process like that, anon.>>38103232I just don't like the idea of any of Rainya's power coming from a source that isn't her or us. I also don't trust any of the Five very much and am worried that Rainya following one could lead to division should we wind up going against their wishes.>>38103285>Several non-Jagga votes are literal duplicates anon.It's pretty common practice to copy a vote instead of organizing your own if it says what you'd want to say.>>38103337The downside is it coming up again, ever.
>>38103337They just don't like Jaggantha, I'm guessing. Or they don't understand how things actually work.
>>38103340It will come up again anyway.>Rainya following oneWho the fuck says thats apossibility? Its about asking Jagga to give us powers to one of our Followers, we don't tell her to follow Jagga.Thats completly different.>>38103347>Or they don't understand how things actually work.According to their posts, that seems to be the case.
>>38103347>Or they don't understand how things actually work.Considering the people complaining about asking Jagga are the ones who keep proving they don't know how things like shaping work, yeah.
>>38103360>give us powers to one of our FollowersMaybe we should ask the king
>>38103360Jaggie won't be handing out powers unless someone is reunited or a followers of his. Us getting him to give her powers without her following him devoutly would cost an arm and a leg.
Alright, modifying slightly.I could 12 votes in the time limit, the only options to get more than 6 votes were fighting skills + KaeJagganatha on 5, so not includedGive her powers on 6, a tie, so I'm choosing not to include at this time. Please feel free to check my count as I write.
>>38103375>Jaggie won't be handing out powers>baseless assumptiomsThat completly depends on what deal we make with him. Maybe he lets us give one of our favour gifts to her.>>38103372We can ask any of them, except Mirror and Baalz.Jagga just has the better gifts for her physical leaning.
>>38103382Just go with that so they won't keep whining.Chances are the faggots that don't pay attention aren't around most of the time anyway, and then we can still ask the Five.
>>38103382Sure, do your thing.I didn't vote for the jaggie thing, but wouldn't might if you included it
>>38103410Yes, one guy got a fact wrong which means everyone against it is an idiot with no attention span.The only reason that I vote against favor is to spite the people that constantly whine about it.
>>38103450>spite votingYou're an even bigger faggot than I thought.
>>38103395>That completly depends on what deal we make with him. Maybe he lets us give one of our favour gifts to her.At what cost? It won't be free. Additionally we could easily level blood control and hand stuff out with infectious form.
>>38103457Surprising no one, I don't care about your opinion.
>>38103462>It won't be free.It will cost us one of our own favours, obviously.We don't know what he would ask, but it costs us nothign to ask. This is something we could easily reject, so asking is literally for free, and might benefit us greatly.And I already explained why Infectious Form is a inferior method. Singular mutations don't really help her much, and the transformation gifts that would increase her strength a ton, aren't available through Infectious Form because they would be permanent.
>>38103450how mature.. trying to spoil the quest for othersspoiler, I not even for it
>>38103450>to spite the people that constantly whine about itThis is the first time asking Jagganatha for potential empowering our allies has come up.You can't do it to spite people who whine about it, because no one ever did before now.
>>38103485>It will cost us one of our own favours, obviously.What was that about baseless assumption anon? Additionally Jaggantha is big on self reliance, whose to say he won't just start talking to her directly if he knows she's interested?
>>38103526I think he's conflating this situation with every other time anyone's ever said that maybe we could ask the Five for help.
>>38103548>What was that about baseless assumption anon?How is that a basless assumptiom? If we make hima deal to give our favour gifts to Rainya, it will obviously cost us a favour gift.Because that would be part of the deal.
>>38103566Like Gift transference? I don't think that's possible, when we shape them we make the Gifts part of ourselves.I'd rather ask all of the Five for ways to empower our allies (possibly through a "Power of the Ancients" gift-bestowing power) than just mentioning Jaggantha in particular. Like when we wound up getting Royal Dominion.
>>38103585>I don't think that's possibleWe literally know its possible, because it already happened.We transferred our gift to the previous owner of the restaurant.
>>38103566Taking anything with a eldritch abomination God, is not wise anon. Who's to say that's the price? Who to say he won't extract it from Rainya or do something else entirely? Until he tells us the deal, don't assume anything. Additionally he may go to straight to Rainya when we ask him instead of using us as a middleowman, if it doesn't lobotomize her, whose to say what she would accept?>>38103596Special gift from King.
>>38103596>We transferred our gift to the previous owner of the restaurant.We hadn't actually shaped that one, according to the narrative.
>>38103548>>38103566>>38103585Both are possibilitiesWhy are you so eager to discuss this? How about to just try and think what the characters would do instead of all this metaIf you really want to know you should try and make it happen, only Pally decide whats gonna happen
>>38103585>Like Gift transference? I don't think that's possibleIt already happened, thats how we got the restaurant.And the "Ask Jagga" was just what we mention we could do, no reason we can't go ask all Four and say "Hey would transferring gifts be possible, and what would it take?".If we don't like what they say, tough shit. We don't really "need" it.>>38103607>We hadn't actually shaped that oneIt kinda proves we didn't need to, since the guy had no risk of random mutation.
>>38103608Except that one isn't.To kill time.I have.Fuck you, curiosity is a terrible reason to vote for something.
>>38103608>How about to just try and think what the characters would doThere is no reason why Shee wouldn't. Jagga has been pretty alright with her sofar.And again, its not like she needs to accept what they offer. Its a no-risks move.
“Well focusing on your fighting skills to start might be a good idea” you say to the Rainyas in front of you, lifting the suspended one out of the way so you can see.“Kae” you say, calling her over, “What do you think?”Rainya gives Kaelyn a hostile look. In your grip your tentacles continue to hold the suspended Rainya securely, as other tentacles rub up against her.“Well...” says Kaelyn consideringly “without any magical talent teaching her Dragon style or Water style is pointless, though I could teach her some more mundane skills I suppose.“I’m not asking for favours from you” growls Rainya.“Be nice” you chide her, as Kaelyn is momentarily taken aback, and then smiles at Rainya, but not in a nice way. Before they start snapping at one another you say “Is magic in-born then, or can it be taught?”“It’s a natural talent” says Kaelyn “You either have it, or you don’t, so that’s out.”“So there’s no way for Rainya to I dunno, unlock a latent magical power or something?” you say. A small part of your mind notes that the tentacles caressing Rainyas body have slipped beneath her clothing and she is struggling in your grip at little, pleasantly so.“Not really no” says Kae, as the three Rainyas in front of you look a little distracted by something. Kae continues “Though as a champion she could develop it I suppose, but other than that the only way to *give* her magic would be to make her a Gifted or an Imbued I guess.”“I’m...not” says Rainya “I’m...not being....a Gifted...they’re...horrible....”“And tightly controlled” agrees Kaelyn “Not a good idea at all.”“What about Imbued?” you ask Kaelyn “You mentioned those earlier.”“They’re illegal!” she points out, before catching herself “Hm, yes. Um, I suppose that’s possible, maybe.”“How do they work?” you ask. You notice the three Rainyas are not talking, just breathing heavily, their eyes unfocused, what is wrong with her?
“Well” explains Kaelyn “The Imbued are given a little magical power that grows quickly within them, usually along predetermined paths, sort of. They’re split into overall themes, Warrior, Mage, Leader and so on. Their natural abilities suitable for such a roll increase along those lines, and they can choose to learn other things – A Warrior isn’t incapable of learning magic, it’s just harder for him than increasing his physical abilities. A Mage can learn martial arts but it will be harder for him than casting spells.”“And you can do this?” you say “Why are Imbued illegal anyway?”“Because they can’t be controlled” says Kae “the magic to do so draws upon a very old spell, any attempt to alter it so far has failed, and one of the restrictions is that the Imbued cannot be controlled by the one who empowers them – and controlling Imbued in other ways typically results in them developing resistance to such methods in short order. The Gifted were an attempt to reverse-engineer the spell, but are...less in many ways.”“Well Rainya” you say “How about that?”The three Rainyas don’t answer, just stand there looking overheated, and then you hear a moaning noise coming from your side, you turn to see the upside down Rainya covered in tentacles, under her clothes, over them, leaving no part of her unmolested.“Oh Rainya, sorry, I’m sorry I didn’t mean it!” you quickly withdraw all of your tentacles and lay her down on the mat. She just lies there panting.“Are you ok?” you ask, kneeling down beside her as Lirael heads over as well.“Oh yeah...” gasps Rainya sweating “I’m great, I’m wow, yeah, I’m not mad at you any more, just, when do I get to go on that ride again?”You laugh and hug her “I’m sorry, I wasn’t paying attention.”
>>38103606>Who to say he won't extract it from Rainya or do something else entirely?The deal we make with them says so.They aren't going to fuck us over, because they want us oin their side. Especially Jagga won't fuck us over like thatr, because its not in his nature. There is a reason we wont ask Baalzamon.>Until he tells us the deal, don't assume anything.NO ONE EXCEPT YOU DOES.Thats exactly the point, we should just ask, then we KNOW the deal and can decide.NO ONE, says we need to do it. We say we should see what is possible and what is not.Get information so we can make informed decisions instead of your random sepculations.
>>38103649>You notice the three Rainyas are not talking, just breathing heavily, their eyes unfocused, what is wrong with her?Oh my...
“What were the options again?” asks the lone Rainya, reuniting all of her bodies into one seems to have calmed her down a little, though she still looks flushed. Lirael comes to stand beside Rainya and looks a you, giving you a smug smile.“Either working on your skills” you say “Or maybe Kaelyn making you into an Imbued, if you don’t mind Kaelyn?”“It’ll take a few days to cast the spell” says Kaelyn “And that’s *if* Rainya wants me to?”Rainya looks doubtful “I’m not sure if I do” she says “Is there no other way? And the skills thing sounds great but...I’m a pretty good shot, maybe I should stick to that and not hand-to-hand?”Your response?>Ok, no decision for now (exclusive)>Work on your melee skills>Stick with ranged skills for now>Convince Rainya and Kaelyn to make Rainya an Imbued>Develop champion powers (warrior, kinetic, mystic, or shade?)>Tech skills, comms, demolitions etc>Other (what?)Other options from earlier are still available
>>38103619>It already happened, thats how we got the restaurant.Not with a shaped Gift, we'd need to earn a new Jaggantha gift then transfer that to Rainya, which could hinder our own power growth.>"Hey would transferring gifts be possible, and what would it take?".I don't actually want to transfer Gifts, I want to get whatever power it is that lets them bestow Gifts and shape them in their followers in the first place.>since the guy had no risk of random mutation.Maybe the King of Hell shaped it for him in the Ritual of Ascendance or whatever it was they went to. If that is the case, I'd be unlikely to vote for it, because I don't trust the Five very much and all of those 'potential future' Rainyas from the fight with Tom are still making me paranoid.
>>38103672>Develop champion powers (warrior, kinetic, mystic, or shade?)>Kinetic or Mystic>Work on your melee skills>I could look into giving you powers myself.
>>38103672>Develop champion powers Kinetic>Work on your melee skills>I might be able to give you some powers, I think
>>38103672>Develop champion powers (Warrior or Kinetic)I'm hoping Kinetic has damage shields, Warrior probably has some neat powers as well.>Work on your melee skills>I could look into giving you powers myself.
>>38103672>Convince Rainya and Kaelyn to make Rainya an Imbued
>>38103683>Maybe maybe maybeGee, would be great to have some actual info on what is possible and what isn't.>>38103672>Develop champion powers (Kinetic )>Work on your melee skills>I might be able to give you some powers, I think
>>38103672>Develop champion powers (warrior, kinetic, mystic, or shade?)You are a champion with all four bloodlines, how about we are a little more agressive in exploring the possibilities that lie in that? You looked great with a bow.>Stick with ranged skills for now
>>38103718We're just discussing things for fun, don't be an ass.
>>38103672>Develop champion powers (mystic)>Work on your melee skills
>>38103731Clearly its not just fun if people go out of their way to nlock a potential avenue for improving Rainya, just because they are unwilling to get more information.
>>38103672>Develop champion powers (warrior/Kinetic )>work on both melee and ranged skills>I might be able to give you some powers, I think
>>38103745>>38103718>>38103708>>38103703>>38103689Why work on here melee skills if she is better at ranged? That way she will be in immediate danger less often too
>>38103767Because her Warrior skills lend themselves to close combat a lot more.And she is already pretty much as good as she can currently be with ranged weapons.There is a lot more upwards mobility for her with melee.
>>38103767Probably because Pally wants her to use that cool as fuck bow.
>>38103784I know right! bow are hella cool, Indulge pally!this was my vote, if your in doubt >>38103725
>>38103784I hope for something else than the bow with Kinetic. Its good, but wouldn't really improve her much in the ways she needs improving.
>>38103672Whichever one's the bow. I think that was kinetic champion powers?I wouldn't mind the Imbued option, but I guess we can save that for she's somehow absolutely terrible at everything else.
>>38103672Melee skills, they are versitile. Knetic or Mystic champion powers.Imbued strikes me as something that would raise too many flags currently.
Kinetic powers, melee skills and granting her powers yourself it is, writing.
>>38103810>I wouldn't mind the Imbued option, but I guess we can save that for she's somehow absolutely terrible at everything else.Or for when Kae becomes capable of doing it at all, which she currently isn't.
>>38103801Shee is pretty good at melee (and ranged), as are Kae and Lirael. Rainya is the best one suited for ranged support, imo, so I'd prefer to develop her that way.
>>38103672>Other (what?)We find a Serec thing and you fight it until suddenly Psychic. Seriously, Life Drain is fucking awesome.
>>38103839>Rainya is the best one suited for ranged supportShe has no support abilities.What you meant is, she is best at ranged fighting, which is currently true, but her Duplication ability works best with her doing multiple things. She can both fight ranged, and cover herself.
>>38103834I figure the one who might need it would be dev, since he really is kinda behind and squishy.No wonder mundanes were fucked in the invasion, magic can just do too much shit.Giant death robots vs making relality your bitch.Lot of the fae stuff also for some reason to me seems to be same shit different name compared to the gifts of the 5.
>>38103842Pally stated that was one of the things that could have happened to dev.On a crit failure vs mind control.
>>38103767Defence bonus from improved melee skill.>>38103760I fail to see how one guy doing a thing for the wrong reasons gives you the right to be an ass to anyone you perceive as not being immediate and total support for your side.>>38103842That seems like a very, very bad idea.
>>38103872>I figure the one who might need it would be devI think Dev would be mostly okay with using technology to bridge the gap. That warmech is pretty good, and can get even better.
>>38103857>supportI meant ranged support in the artillery sense, not in the "buff you up and heal you and stuff" sense.And her duplication ability also means she has to split her attention and focus, IIRC. Not sure if it has changed or not, but having all of her copies doing the same thing would help prevent penalties of that nature.
>>38103885>I fail to see how one guyWhats the reason of the other guys who voted to not at least ask Jagga?
>>38103895The penatly is reduced by higher levels, its pretty small as long as we keep the numbers of Rainyas low.She could totally use Plurality to become 16 Rainyas with Heavy Weapons and mow everything down.But she doesn'T need a lot of Xp investment for that, and most importantly, she would still be far too squishy to stay in a real fight.What she needs is more versatility imo.
>>38103895Half of Duplication's levels are dedicated to lowering those penalties so that it's feasible to do multiple different things at once, such as melee and ranged.>>38103903I want to ask all of the Four simultaneously about getting our own Powers of the Ancients gift bestowal power and am incredibly paranoid about asking any of the Four about Rainya in particular. I can't speak for others.
Is it possible to get better range on the duplicates so that she could have one of them way off somewhere else to keep her from dying if all the others get rekt?
>>38103949>I want to ask all of the Four simultaneously about getting our own Powers of the Ancients gift bestowal powerThey can't grant us that, its part of our Ascension.There is a pretty good chance we will get something like it later, since its part of the Devil Tiger charmset. But we need to advance as deity for that, they can't do it.>and am incredibly paranoid about asking any of the Four about Rainya in particularWhy would we ask them about her in particular? We want to know if its possible at all, to begin with.And its not like the Five don't know about Rainya anyway.
>>38103949The last thing I want to do is to ask them for a Favour THAT big.I'm okay with asking if its possible to transfer our gifts to someone else, but asking for something this huge, even if they can do it, it would cost us more than we're willing to pay.
“I might be able to figure how to give you powers myself” you say to Rainya “I have a few ideas” you wonder about using the Gift of blood control the Ichor already gave you, or possibly about giving Rainya Gifts you earn from the Five, somehow. “We’ll save the Imbued idea for another day” you tell Rainya and Kaelyn, both of whom look a little relieved.“Still” you say to Rainya as she gets up “You do need to work on your close quarters fighting, whether unarmed or with weapons, its a critical weakness that can be exploited.”“Alright” says Rainya “Point taken.” She turns to Kaelyn and says, though it sounds like its been dragged out of her “Kaelyn, would you mind, terribly if you would be so kind, dear, to teach my clumsy ass how to fight?” She smiles at Kaelyn at the end, or possibly grits her teeth.“Of course” says Kaelyn “I’ll expect you up in the top floor bright and early, no time for slacking off.”As Rainya opens her mouth to respond you say “And, maybe you should think about developing your champion powers, specifically the Kinetic ones the Teacher mentioned?”Rainya switches her attention from Kaelyn to you “This is going to end up with me getting electrocuted isn’t it?” she whines.“The Teacher did say a massive energy jolt could kick-start such powers” you say “would you prefer heat? Or light?”“Aren’t those the same thing anyway?” asks Rainya. You recall Dust Town schools don’t have much of a science curriculum as she adds “Alright, electricity it is, am I supposed to stick my hands in a power socket?”Activate Rainyas Kinetic powers?>Y/NDefault is electricity, but feel free to write in other methods if you like.
>>38103999>YShe asked for it.Don't worry Rainya, Shee can distract you with tentacles while it happens.
>>38103955MetaRange on Rainyas duplication powers is actually infinite. Even across the entire galaxy or on other planes of existence all the Rainyas stay connected. Highly-specific spells are required to block this.Its just that Rainya and Shee don't know this.
>>38103999>Yas much as it pains me its nescessary
>>38103999>YAs long as she makes a double before trying anything.
>>38103999We could let her get shot by the armor room thing.Just keep one dupe outside out of the way somewhere she she doesn't die.
>>38104055I would prefer to do it under controlled circumstances.
>>38104055The effects of that would be very interesting, if she survived.
>>38103999>YKinetic energy rapidly converted into thermal energy.Guess the joke.>>38104046It's possible it won't work if she isn't in one body.
>>38104078It's possible it is too. I'd just rather be somewhat safe about it for now.
>>38104106Not sure if that was intentional, but it made me laugh.
>>38103999>Y>Kinetic energy rapidly converted into thermal energy.Probably to late to vote, but Shee should make that joke.At least Lirael and Kae will get it.
Pally, where the hell did you draw those Chaos Magic rules from?That stuff is insane, even by your standards.
>>38104192Looks like some D20 rulset, since he forgot to edit out the references to Fortitude and Reflex checks, which we didn't have until now as tracked stats.
>>38104192That looks a lot like the d20, 3.5 epic spell casting rules.Or how to break the game in 1 session and get the rules removed.
>>38104226It has similarities, but its too different to be drawn from there.
>>38104225>>38104226>>38104246It's from one of Pally's homebrews, I think. I'll go over it and look for inconsistencies with the quest before I go to sleep today.
So I decided to read through some of the Paladin of joy stuff and I gotta say... your character interaction/relationships writing has gotten much, much, better.Some of the early stuff between the three girls is painful. Sireyi really feels like a massive third wheel in a relationship of two caring people.Really glad to see that even if it's moving fast here.. the MC doesn't feel like they were tacked on to someone elses relationship
>>38104268>even if it's moving fast hereIts really not, by Quest standards.
>>38104268They go through a lot of shit together. Makes sense that they get closer faster than normal. To me anyway.
>>38104311With Rainya and Shee yeah. With Sophia and Jal? It.. was.. they professed love to each other then looked over at Sireyi and said, "Oh yeah you too totally XoXoX, back to my tearful union with my true love."
>>38104261The first problem I see is that we don't see what the backlash effects are, which is ver yproblematic since a lot of stuff Kae can't do without getting backlash.>>38104268>even if it's moving fast hereIts not moving fast at all, by any measure.Its glacial for Quest standards, and for a real relationship its also a pretty decent pace.As for Sireyi and her relationship, honestly I never saw it like that, it felt to me always more like she has arelationship to each of them individually, even if Jal and Sofia also had one.Isla was the one who felt always "out-of-place" with Sofia and Jal.
>>38104343Oh I was only talking about this quest. I've never read PoJ.
>>38104343>Oh yeah you too totally XoXoXEh, it took, many many threads and years in-game between that and the three actually having a relationship.Sofia and Jal definitly rushed it with tryignt o get Sireyi, but that was intentional.
>>38104376Jal best waifu
>>38104384She is indeed.I miss her.Sofia and Isla too, but Jal was best.
>>38104376I don't know what the typo is.. but it's just really awkward to read a loving scene with Jal and Sophia and then a few moments later have one of them just dead pan to Sireyi that they love her and that's it. Feels like they're just saying it for the kids or some such. I've been told a relationship develops over years so maybe 10-15 threads from where I'm at in the archive.
“Perhaps converting kinetic energy into thermal energy is easier?” you say. Kae gives a polite smile, Lirael rolls her eyes, Rainya gives you a blank look.“Lets try the warmech repair bay” you suggest, “I’m sure there will be something down there that can give out a regulated electrical flow.”You all head down the warmech repair bay, to see Dev putting new armour on the warmech.“Ladies” says Dev, turning from his work.“Looks good” you say “You’re better at working on this than me.” Dev just looks embarrassed, and pleased.“Speaking of work” you say “You said you could take a day off from yours, but I thought you’d been fired.”“New job” says Dev “car repair, didn’t I tell you?” you shake your head.“Ah sorry” he says “Been repairing cars, today I was supposed to go on a safety course but my boss said I didn’t have to go after I showed him the safe way to use all the tools.”“Ah good” you say “Anything around here that can give out a variable electrical current?”“Sure” says Dev “what do you need it for?”“Well...” you explain.---“Harder!” screams Rainya “More, give me more!”She is standing some distance from the rest of you, a metal rod in each hand – both of which are connected to a piece of repair equipment repurposed for this task.“Are you sure?” asks Dev “You’re taking a lot already”“Crank it up!” insists Rainya, as you, Lirael and Kaelyn watch. Dev increases the power slowly, until Rainya suddenly collapses, and he shuts it off. You and Lirael are neck and neck as you both sprint for Rainya “Rainya, Rainya are you ok, Rainya talk to me!”Rainya coughs, and opens her eyes “Did it work?” she asks weakly as you heal her. Lirael grabs Rainya in fierce hug.“Maybe we need to try another method” you say “this-”You stop talking as a strange yellow aura starts to emanate from Rainya, coalescing into a weak force shield.“Is that...is that me?” asks Rainya in wonder.
[Force Shield 1Rainya can create a Force shield with a shield rating of 10, this is a normal action and costs her 4 hit points. She can only protect herself currently with this power.]Suddenly red lights start flashing and a loud klaxon blares. “WARNING, WARNING” bellows the voice of the Teacher, painfully loud to your hearing “CLASS NINE CHAOTICA ENTITY DETECTED, ALL PERSONAL EVACUATE TO PRETERMINED SAFE AREAS.”“What the?” you ask, looking around at your allies, they all look a little confused “What’s going on?“Is this...is this about me?” asks Kaelyn“I dunno, maybe?” you say, then address the empty air “Teacher, what’s going on?”“CLASS NINE CHAOTICA ENTITY DETECTED, ALL PERSONAL EVACUATE TO PRETERMINED SAFE AREAS.” The voice repeats“What does that mean?” you yell “And can you turn the volume down, please?” you have your hands clamped over your ears, and still it hurts.The hologram of the Teacher appears next to you saying “You do not have clearance for that information Cadet Hyul.” Oh great, this again. At least the klaxon volume has been reduced to a normal level, even if your ears are still ringing.“Can you at least tell me it’s not because of Kaelyn?” you say, pointing to Kaelyn.“Affirmative” says the Teacher “Charging Hammerdown (10%).”“Wait what?” you say “What’s Hammerdown?”“You do not have clearance for that information-”“Really?” you say “You’re going with that again?”“Shee can you hear that?” asks Lirael“Hear what?” you say, your ears still ringing.“Footsteps” says Lirael “Lots of them.Suddenly Kaelyn gasps “My father!” Her face going pale “He’s here!”As she says that you feel a strong burst of what seems like chaos magic bursting around you, but with no visible effect.Ah shit...You and your allies are in the warmech repair, along with a mostly repaired warmech.Actions?>Teleport back to Waystation>Look for intruders>Dev into the warmech>Everyone grab some weapons>Other (what?)
>>38104417>Feels like they're just saying itAt that, point, they really were.If I assume right you are at the beginning of their relationship.There is definitly stuff where Pally had to improve in relationship writing, especially motivation for the romantic attraction which never was really as thing with Sireyi, due to being Sireyi.But Jal trying to get into Sireyis pants was Jal being Jal, and Sofia just got swept up in it, because of the circumstances back then making it a attractive option.>>38104443>Teleport back to Waystation
>>38104443Flee.. not sure how. Worried directly to the waystation will be tracked or something.

Not only it's unprotected and has no safety measures against...well, anything, if Kae's father is here, he probably has something to either follow Shee or screw her teleportation. Aaaaand abandoning the facility to him is an awful plan.

>>38104443Teleport somewhere that's not the Waystation so that we don't potentially get tracked.We can then afterwards teleport to the Waystation from the secondary point. Or if we're paranoid, teleport to tertiary and quaternary points before finally ending up at the Waystation.
>>38104491Fighting him just makes us dead and it sounds like this place is about to explode.
>>38104459So it will get better then? Because around.. thread.. 25ish.. it feels like the only person who really cares about her is Isla. It's not that I'm unhappy for Sophia and Jal at all they make a cute couple. It just really feels awkward as hell that Sireyi is involved.

>>38104538>we can't fight Kaes father right nowWe can, we just can't kill him and will probably get our ass kicked.
Guys, we can't let them take the facility. This place is probably the only place with defense systems against the fae, going back to the Hive is only going to leave Shee exposed in his domain.>>38104515I doubt Hammerdown is a self destruct sequence. That's be full retard on its builder's part.I'm pretty sure it's the only way to ward the reaper off. This is like a "Survive X time" mission.
>>38104517By 25, they dont really have much of a relationship.But I can honestly not say how archive reading might change how you see it compared to actually sitting through it.There is definitly more relationship development later, obviously, you aren't even through half the story yet.
I wonder if he can track Kae wherever she goes now?
>>38104560I think you are right, lets wait the countdown, maybe we should try and get help from the angry telekinetic box. Hopefully it hates him more than us.
>>38104560>This place is probably the only place with defense systems against the faeApparently not. If he can just walk in here, its pretty worthless in that regard.And we aren't going back to the Hive. We go back to Shees Domain.>>38104557>We can, we just can't kill himWe can end up killing him on accident, I'd rather not risk it.
>>38104573He probably can just scry shee. He is angry at her for seducing Kae away from her, I don't think she cares about psychichs or rebels that much. That's what I got from Pally's post in that thread.Anyway, with all these votes to run away, we can pretty much say goodbye to new psychich powers. And all the sweet loot we were going to sell, and whatever else is stored in the facility we haven't found yet.>>38104591Hammerdown is charging up, once it's fully charged it should blast the reaper away.
>>38104517Fuck reading the archives dude that shits boring just wait for it to come back and vote then.
>>38104613>Hammerdown is charging up, once it's fully charged it should blast the reaper away.You have literally no idea what it is and what it does.If it were that all-powerful, they wouldn't have abandoned the base to begin with.And even worse, if it DOES actually kill him, Kae dies.
>>38104560Either way he knows about this place now and we can't kill because for one thing, he's incredibly powerful and for another, he'll just come right back through Kae.
>>38104613>Anyway, with all these votes to run away, we can pretty much say goodbye to new psychich powers. And all the sweet loot we were going to sell, and whatever else is stored in the facility we haven't found yet.>Thinking he will bother to loot the facilitySeriously what? And even if we stood and fought, he won't back off. So its either leaving the facility, or killing him.
>>38104628Get out. Do not join that quest, do not participate further in this quest. You are cancer.
This is why interdimensional teleport is needed. It would be way harder for him to track Kae to our realm if we ported there from some spot in the desert directly to the realm instead of porting into the Waystation or Hive and then entering physically.
When Reaper is out sometime, we should go back and try something insane, like teleporting the facility somewhere else or somehow get it into our realm
>>38104665Just ignore him, he is still butthurt about something he was told half a year ago, there is no reasoning with that.Him still being here explains a lot actually.
“Kae what was that?” you ask “Something that blocks teleportation?”Kaelyn concentrates “yes” she says “Any attempt to teleport will end up sending you to...eww, father, why?”Ok, that’s out for now, maybe, with your ability to overcome limitations and do the impossible you might be able to get out of here.“Dev” you say “Get in the warmech, just in case.”“Right” says Dev, heading for the warmech and popping the canopy.“Shee” says Rainya “Are we fighting Kaelyns father because I mean, against a fae lord, do we even have a chance?”“I don’t know” you say “we might-”The doors at the other end of the warmech bay slide open, and twenty or so beastmen come pouring through, twenty metres away from you. They look pretty much how you expected them to look, a mixture of human and animal appearance, all at least six feet tall and wearing heavy-looking armour. They’re mostly carrying melee weapons, though some have bulky pistols too.“Hammerdown at 20%” drones the Teacher “please reach safe zones.”Actions?Shee>Attack (how?)>Use power (what?)>Other (what?)Rainya>Attack (how?)>Duplicates (how many?)>Other (what?)Kaelyn>Attack (how?)>Use power (what?)>Other (what?)DevDev is getting into the warmech, unless write-ins cancel this action.Lirael>Attack (how?)>Use power (what?)>Other (what?)BattlefieldBeastmen (20)

>>38104645>implying I implied he'd loot the placeThe loot Shee found, anon, and will find if she keeps the place.>>38104677Did we even get the protection upgrades for the realm? I wouldn't doubt a fae lord such as the reaper has the ability to enter other planes.Anyway, teleportation is out, so fighting is the only way now. Let's put that Jagganatha's gift to good use.
Should Kae use this?>Exploding Ice Shards: After you wound someone shards of ice explode from them to strike those nearby. By spending 4 chaos energy or psychic energy points after making a successful unarmed or sword attack you make an willpower check against the ranged defence of anyone within 1metre per point of willpower modifier you have, this is an area attack. Those affected suffer 1d6 points of damage per 10 points of damage you dealt to the target of your unarmed attack. Both you and the target of your unarmed or sword attack are unaffected by this. Half of the damage is cold damage and half is slashing damage. At willpower 26 or higher you can exempt allies from this affect, damaging only those you wish to harm.It looks good against groups. This is a group.

>>38104825Fine with me.

Is there anything we could do using our Family aspect to better protect everyone? Or one of the others to make it possible to teleport?

“Where’s the safe zones?!” you yell to the Teacher as the beastmen charge he says “Scanning, scanning...”“Wherever they are” you say to your allies “Head for them, ok? Dev, cover them in the warmech”.“Gotcha” says Dev, powering it up. You wait until the beastmen are closer and then you unleash your power, a third of the Beastmen drop dead, the rest keep on coming.[Shee HP 270/130]“Shee!” screams Lirael, then the remaining beastmen hit you all, and everything gets confused. You and Kaelyn step forward, trying to keep the Beastmens attention on the two of you, your tentacles intercept their axes and swords as Kaelyn parries serrated blades using her bare hands.You can’t keep them all focused on you though, a couple get past to attack Lirael and Rainya. Rainya has her doubles surround Lirael as she yells “Shee, where’s the damn guns?!” All of her bodies have shining yellow force shields around them, though against the blades of the Beastmen they’re not doing much.[Rainya HP 49, 49, 48, 47 max 52]At your side Kaelyn punches and kicks at the beastmen killing one.“Powered up!” yells Dev, the warmech taking a step forward.“No safe zones active” says the Teacher “please head for minimum safe distance.”“Where’s that?” yells Rainya “3 kilometres” says the teacher, adding “Hammerdown at 30%” Actions?Shee>Attack (how?)>Use power (what?)>Hand out weapons (Dimensional Arsenal)>Other (what?)Rainya>Attack (how?)>Duplicates (how many?)>Other (what?)Kaelyn>Attack (how?)>Use power (what?)>Other (what?)Dev>Attack (how?)>Other (what?)Lirael>Attack (how?)>Use power (what?)>Other (what?)BattlefieldBeastmen (12)

Okay, so Dispel Check is 11+(Caster WillMod).So somwhere around 31-40 right now, since he probably got it augmented.Kaelyn needs to get a roll of 21 to overcome that un-aided.So we need to up it by at least 10. Requiring expenditure of 50MP.I think. I'm still not sure.

>>38105333It would be really helpful if your rules would actually explain how backlash is accrued. Because right now it only explains the backlash check, but not what actually happens and how it interacts with the backlash limit.
>>38105422As I see it we need around +10, which is a mod of -50 on the casting roll. So we would need to spend 50CE.Which would mean a penatly of -75/-50(not suire right now because of the agument rules) on the backlash roll, but I still don't know what happens if you fail that one, because the rules don't say.

“Here!” you say, plasma guns appearing in the grip of your hands and tentacles you toss then to Rainya and Lirael “Lirael keep back!” you yell “Rainya protect her!”“Got it!” yells Rainya, as Lirael gives a wordless cry of protest but does as asked.“Kae can you dispel the teleport block?” you ask as you slay away another axe-stroke with a bone-covered limb.“I can try” she says, fighting at your side “But I need a moment.”“Dev, Rainya!” you yell “Get rid of them!”You lash out with your tentacles even as Dev carves onto the Beastmen with his plasma sword and Rainya lays down a hail of plasma bolts. Under your combined assault all of the beastmen fall in moments. Soon all that is left is you and your allies.“Kaelyn-” you say“On it” she replies, tracing arcane symbols in the air in glowing light and murmuring in some unknown language.“Kaelyn-” you say again “Any time now.”You try the teacher in the mean time “Teacher activate safe zone”“Activation of safe zone will delay Hammerdown charging” says the TeacherAh dammit...As you all wait, weapons in hands, watching the entrance for any more beastmen Kaelyn finishes her spell and...nothing happens.“I’m sorry Shee” she says, shaking her head “My fathers spell is too strong.”[Kaelyn CE 119/169, Backlash 13/19]You’re not exactly surprised, still, it would have been nice to have an escape route. Then you feel it, a teleport, or maybe a gateway coming in. No, not a gateway, multiple gateways, maybe two dozen in fact.Around you points of light appear and expand, forming into doorways of light. You focus your own powers, they get near you so easily. One by one the doorways wink out, until only a half-dozen manage to open. However is coming through those is going to find themselves in the desert, amidst the rocks.
Through the remaining half dozen, all at the other end of the warmech bay, you can see hundreds, no thousands of beastman troops. They pour through the doorways, a swarm of slavering monsters and you allies greet them with a hail of laser and plasma bolts – which burst harmlessly against a massive force shield that springs up, protecting the army. Onwards they charge.“Stop!” yells a booming voice, the beastmen halt, barely three metres away, and then the horde parts, and a single figure walks through.It is a humanoid figure in elaborate, decadent clothes hung with jewels and gold. He stops just past the rank of the beastmen and addresses Kaelyn, standing at your side “Kae darling, please come with me, or I’ll slaughter all of your new friends.” He has no visible weapons.“Come with you?” asks Kaelyn incredulously “So you can use me as an extra life whenever you want? No thanks, dad!”“Kaelyn I love you” says Lord Reaper “But if you don’t come with me, right now, things are going to get difficult.”“Hammerdown at 40%” the teacher says tonelessly.Your response?>Say nothing>Tell him Kaelyn is yours now>Teleport away (Impossibility)>Attack (weapon?)>Say something else (what?)>Other (what?)You’re facing hundreds of beastmen in the warmech repair bay.Tell the Teacher to activate a safe zone?>Y/N

>>38105937i do not criticize your system, but why not ?it seems to me that an overflow of power would serve perfect for the porous of fuel

>>38106021How about no...
>>38106031>So Liraels healing also doesn't work?CorrectOk, please roll 2d20, first is teleport, 2nd is another Willpower rolland vote on extra psychic energy used, average of 3 used.Also pick location, or I'll just assume out in the desert somewhere.
Rolled 9, 8 = 17 (2d20)>>3810606180
Rolled 4, 5 = 9 (2d20)>>3810606125
Rolled 1, 12 = 13 (2d20)>>38106061120Desert in the middle of nowhere is where I want, yes.
Rolled 13, 18 = 31 (2d20)>>3810606110
Rolled 9, 16 = 25 (2d20)>>3810606180 sounds fine
>>38106069>25There are always faggots like you. Every single fucking time.
>>38106008>>38106012ah yes i see
>>38106066>>38106069>>3810607075 is okay, I suppose.The second willpower roll being so poor worries me more.25 is not a lot.
>>38106061>>38106071>Take the fourth roll for Impossibility (Impossibility)
>>38106066>>38106069>>38106070Why does the dice god hate us so
>>38106102I figure our Bonus from Family comes into play there too.
>>38106008>>38106012it could be argued tho that physical well being and life force are to different things, the life force thing being closer the the vampire power pool (vita or something like that if i recall correctly)
>>38106110Anon, Impossibility isn't the ignore the dice rules power. Not yet, anyway.Even if I wish it would be, just this once, to teach those taunting fucks a lesson.
Expenditure should be a normal vote.
>>38106139If it was then that faggot that voted 10 would've gotten counted as well.75 is close enough to 80 that I'm satisfied.
>>38106129>it could be argued tho that physical well being and life force are to different thingsThey obviously are, since Shee doesn't expand in physical size when she gets overcharged.But this is part of the overall problem of HP as a system, I wouldn't try to think too much about it.
