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’re not here to talk to the Reaper, you’d rather be somewhere else, you focus, not only on your psychic powers but on the part of you that is impossible, the part of you that overcomes all limits. You want to be far away from here, somewhere out in the desert, in case Reaper follows you or tracks you, from there you’ll decide what to do.You feel the world around you warp and twist as you carry you and your friends awa-“No!” yells Lord Reaper and you feel a sudden, crushing despair hit you, you’re worthless, you’ll always be worthless, nothing, no less than nothing, you’ll never be anything. You deserve to die, you should kill yourself and just get it over with. Around you, you see your allies fall to the ground, whimpering, seems you’re not the only one feeling this, though you’ve remained standing at least. A testament to your willpower.You push harder, you need to be away from here, you need to...be...somewhere else...[PE 0/48, HP 228/130]You appear in the desert, far away from the facility. Your allies, including Dev in his warmech, are all around you, but they remain collapsed in the sand, dealing with their own issues, Dev is slumped in the warmechs cockpit, though the warmech itself is upright.
You don’t feel so hot yourself right now. You see Kaelyn start to shake it off and get up on all fours, swearing.[-10 to all d20 rolls]Still, at least that’s over, for now-A hand grabs your throat and lifts you into the air as Lord Reaper appears out of nowhere.“Did you really think you could run from me?” he snarls, his fist tightening around your throat “Do you think it works like that? I take from you your ability to travel!”You feel a painful wrench deep within you.[Teleportation powers may no longer be used without including Impossibility, at this time]“Father no...” mumbles Kaelyn“Just a moment my dear” says Lord Reaper, an ornate black-and-silver scythe appearing in his free hand “I’m just going to kill this little freak and then I’ll make it all better.”Actions?>Teleport away (Impossibility)>Attack (weapon? This pleases Jagganatha)>Say something (what?)>Other (what?)Only Kaelyn can act, out of your allies, at this time.

>>38106257>Other (what?)Absorb Spell. I take your ability to travel.
>>38106283If we kill him, Kae dies and he comes back anyway.

>>38106299>not taking his ability to take stuff.Way better.>>38106289Doesn't that cost 30 PE, of which we currently have 0?
>>38106283>Absorb Spell and Baalzy Shadow Form
>>38106257>Absorb Spell>Attack in Titan FormEgo-Humbling Strike allows us to not kilol him if it comes to it, we can't hope to teleport with the -10 malus.
>>38106307I sincerely doubt that will kill him, but it will maybe stall him
>>38106323>Doesn't that cost 30 PERule of Shadow does cost 30PE. Yes.Absorb Spell costs 10. And Titan nothing.
>>38106323No, it's not. If we make it so he can't follow, we can leave again and actually get away.It costs 10 and we can burn HP. All the forms people want to use cost Psychic Energy as well, in case you forgot.>>38106326It won't come to it, we can't defeat him.

>>38106355YIt's a shame we're out of XP. I'd have loved to get this one permanently.
>>38106355>Attack (This pleases Jagganatha)>Titan Form>Y
>>38106355>YI meant the Afflict Spell anyway.
>>38106355>YThat's what you get for being a douche, Reaper.>>38106363I recall it being mentioned it costs 8 when we got the power.>>38106369Maybe we can go into XP debt for it, if we're even allowed to get this one permanently.
>>38106393>I recall it being mentioned it costs 8 when we got the power.How about you just look up the ability and see that it doesn't?
>>38106257>Say something (You don't mess with my family)>Attack (This pleases Jagganatha)>Titan Form
>>38106407How about you read the archives and realize it's probably a typo?>>37904428>[Titanic Form Gained: For 8 Psychic Energy Shee can turn into a 12ft tall combat form. Her Durability and Might increase and she gains a Focus Weapon. Exact stats will be added to the sheet before next thread]
>>38106369Well, it looks like we're about to get into a fight with Lord Reaper and we did just get that Forged By Battle gift that gives us XP for fights and even more XP if the fights are ridiculously stacked against us.Maybe Jaggantha will have mercy on our soul and let us get enough XP to buy it.Hahahaa yeah right.
Can someone tell me if this is wrong. Can we expend HPs to pay for an ability's PE cost?
>>38106421How about you look up the archive and realise that was retconned because it has never cost us 8PE afterwards?
it is a typo, Titanic Form *should* cost 8 PE, I left it out by mistake, for now though it's cost is 0 due to QM error
>>38106421Rules > ArchiveEspecially since the ability got updatet since then with new levels.
The only way out of this that has a chance of everyone surviving that I can see is if Kae submits.
>>38106462Nah, bullshit.We just take his ability to travel.Then we teleport out of here.
This is a fight we can't win... not yet.What do you other anons think?Do you intend to stay or are you just stalling a moment to teleport?
>>38106453QM post > Rules>>38106437Pally doesn't always track PE expenditure in the text if he doesn't think it'll be overly relevant, so I assumed that was just what was happening.
>>38106475Wouldn't ability to detect be better?
>>38106492>QM post > RuleshahahahNo. Pally changes abilities all the time.
>>38106488Could impossibility make it possible for us all to teleport to Shee's realm without the massive penalty?
>>38106488I'm planning on using our absorbed spell to remove his ability to Teleport, then getting the fuck out.Even if we *could* win, we can't contain him long-term and killing him would be...bad.>>38106501Did you miss the part where he said it was a typo? Right above your previous post?
>>38106499He can have others detect for him, move helps us right now better, I think.Means he's stuck in the desert for the moment.
>>38106518>Did you miss the part where he said it was a typo? Right above your previous post?A post he made after that conversation at which point my statement was true. That you happened to be guess lucky, doesn't mean you actually had a valid point then.
>>38106519But he's alone right now, and won't he know where we teleported?
How did he even find us in the first place? No where is safe now that he knows what we all look like and can apparently find us anywhere. Except maybe Shee's plane.
>>38106518>Did you miss the part where he said it was a typo?Doesn't really change he was right with saying Rules > Archive.
>>38106552We -could- ask Baalzmon for his help. Ask him for a way to hide from anyone.
>>38106552He just scried for Kae, which we foolishly brought along to the facility.Despite trying to avoid doing so.I'm not sure why Shee didn't think that would be a bad idea.>>38106580Baalzamon isn't all powerful.
>>38106548Then he teleports back and gets someone to detect us.>>38106580Good joke, anon.
>>38106580I'd rather ask anyone else.
>>38106591No, he's not. Be he is the god of being sneaky, so I figure he probably has something that could help us out with hiding.
>>38106580I'm all for
>>38106604>Be he is the god of being sneakyAlso he is the god of betrayal.Not the perfect guy to rely on hiding you.
You feel the power of Jagganatha pouring into you, stronger than anything you've felt from him before.Accept Gift?>Y/NDC 25
>>38106604He is the very last person we should be asking favors from.
We could really use Mile-High Jump right now, Jagga. In case you are looking for a gift for us.
>>38106622>NGuys. We literally can't win that one right now because of the -10Despair penalty.
>>38106622Y>>38106660Losing the roll doesn't mean "bad shit" it means "Jaggantha chooses for us". We got Titanic form last time we lost a Jaggie roll.Mirror was only bad shit because we lost and he was pissed at us.
>>38106622>N>>38106630>>38106646>>38106651>>38106656We LITERALLY can not succeed at this roll.13-10=320+3<25
>>38106657If that is even a choice>>38106660fuu.. Good pointI change my >>38106656>N
>>38106660Well, in current situation, would having Jaggantha have his way with Shee Hyulk really be a bad thing?
>>38106681>"Jaggantha chooses for us"NO IT DOESN'TIT MEANS A RANDOM GIFTJagga chooses the three gifts we get for shaping.The unshaped gift is RANDOMWe've been over this the last time.
>>38106710Yes, dead reaper is not really dead reaper, it means dead Kae
>>38106681It doesn't mean that at all.The failed shaping roll is completly random.Jagga only chooses what we get offered if we succeed.Which has been explicitly spelled out when the sstem was explained.
>>38106681I'm now imagining Shee as Popeye getting fed spinach by jaggantha
And people tell me I'm a dick when I complain about retards that can't read making retarded decisions all the time.THIS EXACT KIND OF THING.
>>38106622>Y>>38106720>>38106735If by 'random' you mean "QM's choice", then yes.
>>38106760>If by 'random' you mean "QM's choice", then yes.No, Pally also picks from a random table, actually.He might cheat at it, but then your entire defense is.>I'm sure the QM will cuddle us for our retarded decisions.
>>38106741He showers her in Gamma Radiation.>>38106622Y
>>38106622>YBecause I want to see what happens
You can stop samefagging now.You already generated as many Y as there are IPs.
Yeah. We should really be risking rampage or who knows what else when the only way out of here with a chance of saving everyone is keeping our heads and teleporting away.
>>38106777Shee's new permanent form. Thanks Jag!
None of you ever again get to complain I'm not completly right in complaining about people making retarded decisions in this quest because they are incapable of reading.And they even go sofar to samefag their retardation because "I bet the QM will save us from our own stupidity!".
>>38106824No, I will still complain about you being a shit-flinging retard when you act like a shit-flinging retard. You don't get to tell me what to do.
ok, roll that 1d20+3 to shape the gift
Rolled 14 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>38106852I'm feeling lucky.
Rolled 20 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>38106852
Rolled 19 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>38106852gotta get that 25.. yay
Rolled 14 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>38106849Luckily you faggots just proved I'm not shitflinging at all, I'm just saying what is literally true.>>38106852
>>38106824It's just risk-taking behaviour. I'm willing to bet everyone that voted yes knows of the potential consequences. Regardless, we may get lucky. Either Pally rolls well on the chart, or the decision is delayed until after the huge dice penalty has run its course.>>38106852Annnnnd I'm wrong.
>>38106852You funny guy.
>>38106868>>38106867exact same time.. the worse one on top, damn
>>38106849You don't get to tell someone he's "shitflinging" when people make objectively reatrded decisions, and then defend them with proves that they don't pay attention to the story.This is worse than the Mirror "we have +12WillMod", because that one we actually had a chance at.
>>38106888Order of the roll doesn't matter, we needed two nat 20s to succeed.
>>38106881>I'm willing to bet everyone that voted yes knows of the potential consequencesNo they don't.They think pally will cheat then randomisation to give them something good. They rely on the QM bailing them out when they do something stupid.There is absolutely no benefit to risking this right now, when we HAVE a perfectly functional way to get away.
>>38106907I wonder what happens if we crit on a shaping roll? Assuming this will still be worth playing after the next couple of updates.
>>38106934Oh please, as if Pally would actually pick something bad.I voted Y because I know he won't.
>>38106877>Implying I voted>Implying you aren't still flinging shit>Implying they didn't decide it's worth the risk because of the borderline-suicidal waste of an action that turning into a Titan and attacking him is>>38106903>It's retarded because I'm unwilling to take a riskUnless you want to make an argument that the QM is going to coddle us by not having the extremely powerful fae that we've been warned about excessively murder us instantly, that is.
>>38106949I look forward to your recation
>>38106953>by not having the extremely powerful fae that we've been warned about excessively murder us instantlyWe could have gotten away right now. We don't need that gift to do that.
The power of Jagganatha flows within you, despite your weakened will you manage to make it something beneficial at least...[Invulnerable HideAttacks cannot penetrate your skin. By spending 12 psychic points you ignore all damage and effects from a single attack you are affected by.In Titanic Form the cost of this is reduced by your ranks in Titanic Form (to a minimum of 2 Psychic Energy).]You almost made the roll, so I figured I could at least give you something useful for this fight.Otherwise I would have rolled.
>>38106966>>38106989See? What did I tell you?
>>38106989oh come on, don't coddle us pally! Roll it!
>>38106989>By spending 12 psychic points you ignore all damage and effects from a single attack you are affected by.But...aren't we with 0 PE?
And now I sit and watch as people bitch and moan that Pally didn't badend us on the spot just to validate their sense of superiority.
>>38106949I don't mean the shaping result would necessarily ruin anything, but we're in a very bad situarion.
>>38106967>We could have gotten away right now.We could've, but people jumped on the favor and voted to attack, which means he gets a round. I voted to use his remove power ability on his teleportation and teleport away, since I didn't care about favor.>>38106989>despite your weakened will you manage to make it something beneficial at least...So is that an actual mechanic that a near-pass locks it into being beneficial? Like you have a bunch of different ranges based on our distance from the DC with our roll which determine how likely or unlikely we are to get a negative mutation?>>38107025HP can be burnt in lieu of PE.This has been stated like a dozen times this thread alone.
>>38106989Eh, normally I would complain.But considering the circumastances, I guess I have to thank you this time.>>38107025We can spend HP.
>>38107047>So is that an actual mechanic that a near-pass locks it into being beneficial?Not officially, no
>>38107047>>38107055Sorry, sorry, I just got here recently and skipped everything not a story update.
>>38107035Considering we were completly right, and Pally himself said we were.We dont really need to.If Pally wouldn't have coddled the retards we would have gotten fucked.
>>38107078Read the Rules.Thats what we got all those pastebins for.
>>38107047>We could've, but people jumped on the favor and voted to attackBecause we have little chance to succeed at running with him holding us.Absorbing his spell and keeping him from following us first, was the better option.
>>38107072We had an almost pass with mirror and he fucked us.We have an almost pass with jaggy and he says "I can respect this" and then summons up a bag if popcorn and some beer.
>>38107085Potentially fucked. It still needs to be rolled on the range of gifts on offer. Again, I voted for the Jag gift knowing the risks.You're adverse to risk-taking, and that's cool. But you hardly need to shit everywhere just because others disagree.
>>38107085Stop being such an ass all the time. Maybe one or two of them voted for the wrong reasons, but the rest probably considered it a measured risk. Just because you didn't agree, doesn't make them stupid.>>38106967He's going to get at least one, probably two, rounds, since we've already been locked into spending at least one round attacking him in the process of earning this favor. Second round for locking his teleport. Third round we teleport away.>>38107142Well, we don't need to run if we teleport, you know?>>38107120That's a suicide mission.Joking, he really should at least try to read them.
>>38107143>We have an almost pass with jaggy and he says "I can respect this"I actually expected a scene like that.Although in that case he would have gotten us something cool but inconvenient, because he is big on "carrying the consequences of your actions".>>38107152I respect your position, but others admitted to voting Y because of not actually understanding how it works. And I specifically attacked the people that made the decision because they failed to properly read the rules of this.
>>38107035Can't please everyone, m8.>>38106989You certainly make a good effort OP. I salute your fortitude.
Despite your fears, despite your loss of hope, you won’t just lie down and die, you won’t give up without a fight. Your body starts to expand even as your tentacles retract. You grow, and grow, and grow. Soon Lord Reaper is forced to let go of you rather than be dragged off his feet. You tower over him in your titanic form.“My turn” you rumble, swinging hammer and fists at him. Lord Reaper snarls and deflects your attacks easily with his scythe. Although it seems you can’t hurt him, you’re holding his attention at least. You drive him back, even as Kaelyn makes her way to her feet and totters over to where the two of you are fighting “Father why?” she asks“It was for your own good!” he replies, easily fending off your attacks, and not launching any of his own yet, he keeps his eyes on you, but talks to Kaelyn as you fight.“My own good!” she yells “How is making me your own personal *return from death* card for my own good?!”“You’re not the only one I have” says Lord Reaper calmly “I gave you the power to match or even defeat a full-blooded fae my girl, otherwise you would have been easy meat as a child for any of your relatives.”As Kaelyn is momentarily stunned into silence, Lord Reaper turns his attention to you “And now” he says “I’ll rid myself of an annoying pest!” his scythe leaps forward, too fast for you to follow even as Kaelyn screams “No!”Black energies dance around the scythe and as it touches your skin, your newest Gift activates.[HP 278/130]Nothing happens, there’s not even a scratch. Lord Reaper looks surprised “that should have killed you” he says, then adds “no matter, ducking under your hammer swing and prepares to hit you again.“Father wait!” yells Kae “Don’t kill her!”Actions?>Keep fighting>Teleport away (Impossibility)>Can’t we talk about this?>Other (what?)

>>38107294>FamilyFinally. A use for it.Captcha: wekil
We shouldn't be using our weakest Aspect, just saying.
>>38107294>FamilyWe care about everyone involves
What do people think Family would actually be able to do against the despair effect? Corruption makes sense, it would change the magic on us, but I can't see Family actually doing anything.
>>38107214>Teleport away (Impossibility)>>38107294>Family
>>38107408I can see Family breaking the effect because we fight defending them right now.The problem is just its by far our weakest, so while it could do it in theory, it is less likely to be able to do it in praxis, compared to Corruption changing the effect.
Family it isPlease roll 2d20First is to remove his ability to Scry, 2nd is to negate his despair effect.
Rolled 19, 7 = 26 (2d20)>>38107435

>>38107457No it wasn't.it was the single most voted for option.And Keep fighting was stupid anyway.
>>38107457I can change my vote from nothing to scrying if we can just get on with it...
>>38107471Keep Fighting had 3, Remove Scrying had 3.That last vote for removing scrying was 1 second late and possibly a samefag.
>>38107490So you want us to vote again?Fuck that.And you can say "possibly samefag" about basically every vote.
>>38107507Doesn't matter if it was or not, the vote was still tied.
In the event of a tie, I decide. I chose remove ability to Scry.
>>38107539You should update the rules with that.I'm okay with it, but it needs to be written down then.
>>38107579I think it has been states in some other threads before
>>38107600I'm pretty sure it came up before, but since we have rules on voting, it should be in them.
>>38107619Alright. In the future, please acknowledge when there is a tie and state which option you are breaking it in favor of, otherwise I might assume there was a miscount again.
“I take from you your ability to use magical sight” you say to Lord Reaper.[HP 274/143]He staggers back in pain and surprise, then launches an inhumanly fast flurry of attacks at you. Your Invulnerable Hide blocks each one.[HP 214/143]Still, that drained you, another flurry like that and you might be dead, your next actions need to change this battlefield.You recall how much you care for your family, how much you want to protect them, and how hard you’ll fight if someone hurts them. You feel the pall of despair lifting from you, and in the sands, your allies stir, then it comes crashing back down on you. The part of you that lives for your family just isn’t strong enough yet.“You’re not getting away that easily” says Lord Reaper and waves his hand, a dozen black swords appear, hovering over you and your allies. But not Kaelyn.“Make one move” he threatens “Use any power and the blades fall, not quite as effective as the Lifestealer” he caresses his scythe “But more than enough to kill your friends.”“Now Kae dear” he says “Be a darling and come with me, or watch your friends die, one at a time.”Kae shakes her head “Father please?” she begs “If you have others, why are you doing this?”Behind you, you hear Lirael stirring.Actions?>Keep fighting>Teleport away (Impossibility)>Can’t we talk about this?>Take Power (what?)>Other (what?)

>>38107789Okay.Just stating in advance, I'm planning on burning 23 on Quicken and 50 on Teleport, because that warmech.>>38107822OP just said we have 74.
>>38107689>Teleport away (Impossibility)(Quickened)This requires very careful expenditure to work guys.Please don't fuck this up
>>38107689>Quickened Subtle Teleport (Impossibility)Since he'll probably just kill them all anyway if we don't.
>>38107833>OP just said we have 74.I can't see the math behind that.130-39-60.Unless that flurry was actually soaked instead of blocked by ther new ability, contrary to what the text said.
>>38107833It needs to be subtle or he'll drop the swords.
>>38107887Just count your blessings, I guess?
So Quickened Subtle Teleport (Impossibility) it isPlease roll 4d20 (last one is impossibility) and vote on extra psychic energy used for each ofQuickenedSubtleTeleport Also state destination.I'm going with 74 *real* hit points, even if my math is wrong0HP is unconscious, not auto-kill
>>38107912>It needs to be subtleThats what we got Quicken for.
Rolled 17, 1, 11, 12 = 41 (4d20)>>3810794123/5/45
Rolled 10, 7, 12, 10 = 39 (4d20)>>3810794123545
Rolled 13, 1, 12, 4 = 30 (4d20)>>3810794115044Waypoint
Rolled 13, 20, 11, 16 = 60 (4d20)>>38107941
>>38107950>>38107965Great. They're dead.
>>38107950>>38107965 we were not subtle at all
>Critfail during the Reaper encounterFucking Christ...
>>38107950>>38107964>>38107965That Subtle fail should luckily not matter thanks to Quicken.
>>38107989Good that we took his magic sight
>>38107965You literal faggot.You actually did.You actually fucking did.You voted for a wrong amount of Energy.Also the autofail, but I'm more mad about the average.Not only did you autofail us, you made it so that the average is fucked and we wouldn't have succeeded on the Subtle check anyway.I blame you for everything that goes wrong or could go wrong, even if it wasn't really your fault, for the rest of the thread.
>>38108008Its not a crit fail. Its just a auto-fail.Its not particular negative except for Subtle not working, which doesn'T actually make a big difference.
>>38107970>>38107941Destination waystation (stairway to our realm)So much extra psychic energy that we have just 10 hp left
>>38108018>>38108011>>38108032No, it does matter. Now that Teleport can be tracked by fucking anybody right to the steps of our domain.
For the love of god I pray we're not going right to the Waystation right now...
>>38108049hopefully the waystation will help cover our steps
>>38108049We did vote for that.>>38107941I hope its not to late to say >Destination somewhere in the Desert
>>38108070Oh, right, it has magic to disguise supernatural power surges and defeat tracking magic.We...should probably try to increase that by a lot, like immediately.Still afraid.
>>38107941>Random DesertThen we skip around a bit first. He can't follow us this time.
>>38108088>We...should probably try to increase that by a lot, like immediately.I hear you loud and clear bro
>>38108088>it has magic to disguise supernatural power surges and defeat tracking magicWe have no idea how good that is. Its not really meant to thwart fae nobles.So, I would not rely on that.
Waystation it is.This update is going to take a little time, please be patient.
>>38108090>2 fucking HP left>Teleporting giant-ass Warmech>In Murder Desert>"Skip around a bit, it'll be fine"
>Shee is going to end up on the floor in the waystation, nearly unconscious, in Titan formI hope she doesn't fall through the floor.
>>38108113It has been updatet. Still, that +10DC isn't going to do shit.>>38108125We're not gonna teleport the warmech into the Waystation either. Not to mention we can jsut leave it behind after this skip.
>>38108090We don't know how long it takes him to shake of the 'no scrying' we put on him.Getting to our realm as fast as possible should be top priority
Hopefully Rainya can get her shield up. Assuming it'll do any good. Lirael might survive the damage. Dev might be dead.
>>38108123>Waystation it is.We're fucked. Our asset is gone.Damn. I really like dthat restaurant.Maybe if Pally is really nice to us again, Impossibility makes it not possible to be tracked.>>38108154>giving him direct psychic lead to our hideout should be priorityNo.Not to mention, it definitly lasts long enough for us to use teleport.
>>38108149We probably untransform when we pass out. And we'll only be bleeding profusely and vomiting blood from overtaxing our body and mind to this degree, not yet unconscious.Though I wouldn't mind if Pally makes us fall unconscious anyway and our allies (Rainya and Lirael, mainly) fret over it, it'd be kinda cute and we need something cuter right now.
>>38108188We still got a lot of tempHP, so we won't fall unconscious.
>>38108149Forget about Shee, I'm worried about the Warmech.
>>38108204I am more worried about our fail and what that might mean for our allies life expectancy
>>38108224Nothing, Quicken takes care of us being fast enough.Subtle was to not leave a psychic signature.
I know people really don't like asking the Five for help, but I really think we might need to ask King to beef the fuck out of the Waystation's defensive/stealth thingies.Whatever he has us do cannot be worse than Reaper storming the place with a legion of beastmen.
>>38108183Doesn't really change the fact that we have a -10 and *2 fucking HP*, you know?>>38108150Yeah, but still, 3 other adult-sized humans and a kid? Not an easy DC, and we'd need to make an Impossibility roll each time as well.>>38108202Not sure if that would actually make a difference, and we might lose consciousness even if it would because narrative.And again, because I think it'd result in a scene I'd enjoy.>>38108224Quickening means the power takes place in a near-instant, that's not a real concern.Hopefully.
>>38108268>we have a -10The -10 comes from his presence and even with it we still got +13 on all teleport rolls.We would just have to spend a turn asking Kae for a Donation of PE for the Subtle of the next jump.
>>38108266Its never gonna happen anon, ever.this saddens me to no end
>>38108266I'm actually willing to at least listen to Baalzamons offer in this regard.
>>38108266Would it really matter now? He's one of the strongest things on the planet and he's about to find out where we live.
>>38108351I might vote to listen to the King, but Baalzabitch can still fuck off with that shit.
>>38108355It will take him time to get someone here to track the signature.So if we ask right now, we have a chance.Although I halfway think Imposibility makes it impossible to track anyway.Last time he scried us or Kae directly, but I'm not sure it actually leaves a trackable signature.Especially since Kae was explicitly not supposed to leave our Realm to begin with,m to avoid this situation.
>>38108320The DC increase a *single* adult human adds to the jump DC is +10. And then there's the familiarity malus.Even without the -10, that's still a minimum DC 45 for each jump, which we can't make normally.I don't think Kae can donate energy, though I might've missed that in the rules. Even if she can, why would Chaos and Psychic Energy be compatible?
>>38108420I think it can be followed since he was right on top of Shee as soon as we got out of the facility. I'd think scrying would take a little time.
>>38108376>BaalzabitchFucky ou. Baazlamon has been nothing but helpful to us.>>38108437>And then there's the familiarity malus.Its not a malus, its a modification. It can actually decrease the Base DC.And you're confusing the rules for apport with the rules for Teleport.
>>38108453We took his ability of scrying and magical sight. We have time.
>>38108376>>38108462Fucking deja vu, goddamn.
>>38108437>The DC increase a *single* adult human adds to the jump DC is +10.Wrong ability. Teleportation has no fixed +DC for mass, and we teleport 4 people ona regular basis, its not even roll worthy.I refered to using Life Drain on her. She is unhurt and it would give us PE.
I don't think we even made the check to successfully teleport, did we?
>>38108506We easily did.
>>38108453>I'd think scrying would take a little timeHe can't just follow our teleport, he needs to track the signature and that would take just as long as scyring for us.He probably had aquieckened scyring prepared.
I hope we can make working psychic activation chambers in our realm because I'm sure as fuck not ever voting to come back to the facility and sleep naked in a vat of goo for several hours.
>>38108567Naked or not-naked doesn't really make a difference to Shee.
>>38108453Maybe he followed his link to Kae's soul?>>38108462>Its not a malus, its a modification. It can actually decrease the Base DC.It can, but I don't think we're overly familiar with the freaking desert, so it's probably a malus at this point.I assumed mass DCs would be the same for a reason that I'm sure made sense at the time.>>38108490Point. I would not vote to Life Drain Kae, ever. That wouldn't go over well. We'd also need to abandon the mech, which we might be doing anyway, I don't know.
>>38108608>I would not vote to Life Drain Kae, ever. That wouldn't go over well.I see no reason why not. She wants to get away as much as we do, and she is the safest choice for it.She is completly unhurt, its not even a risk, its really not too much to ask ina desperate situation.>We'd also need to abandon the mechI'm pretty sure the mech doesn't fit into the hallway in front of the stairs anyway, so we can't teleport it to begin with.
>Over 30 minutes for Pally to write this updateI'm so terrified right now.
The suspense is killing me
>>38108730We will need 130 days to get our HP back, we got a timeskip coming.
>>38108730I'm not that worried. PoJ had plenty of moments like this in it.
>>38108730>>38108734>FearmindPally, we're becoming a Gestalt.You know, again.>>38108742We can quintuple our regen rate to 5/day with Body Control mastery and a level or six in Durability would help.
>>38108730Tell me about it...someone didn't make it.
>>38108742We could just life drain and use heal powers.
>>38108730He is probably just choosing his words carefully as not to disturb the less serene anons
>>38108766Anon.Anon pls.We repeadetly talked about how HP bunred for EP can only be regenerated naturally.
>>38108766Nope, can't recover aggravated damage through supernatural means, it has to heal naturally.I think Body Control and Durability's heightened natural healing rates count, since similar powers did in the previous quest, but it might not, and definitely no other powers count.
>>38108787Just walk around holding hobos in our tentacles and periodically life drain them to top ourself off with temporary points.
>>38108807Hobos have 12 HP max and we can only get 1/2 that as THP. Even less if they're malnourished.
>>38108818Lots of hobos.
>>38108807>>38108818>>38108838Bad anons, Shee's not going full vamp/serial killer.
>>38108838We only have so many tentacles, anon. And I don't know if Rainya will still like them if they're covered in hobo protoplasm.>>38108872Yeah.It's way too inefficient.
Completely unrelated to what's happening now, but I just thought that it's possible that Jaggantha's avatar is an aggressive nerd who went 100% tech route instead of bighuge smash route. It'd be kinda funny to me at least.
>>38108903Leveling up Feast of life?
>>38108956He's probably both by now, but I expect technology use from him, yeah.
You gather your powers, you need to be quick, undetectable, and transport your allies despite not being able to use your teleportation abilities.As you and your allies fade out, the world warping around you, the black swords come falling down. Not a one of them makes contact and you are your allies appear in the Waystations food cellar, the only place you could think of big enough and sturdy enough to house the warmech, for now at least.You’re almost dead on your feet, but you know that you didn’t manage to conceal your psychic power use, you’ll have left a definite signal for anyone to follow you, still, with Lord Reaper unable to scry, hopefully that will take some time.“Shee we need to move!” says Kaelyn urgently“What?” you reply“My father!” she says, just as Lirael climbs to her feet and stares around in confusion, both Rainya and Dev are still out of it “He’ll be coming!”“He can’t” you say tiredly “He can’t sense anything at a distance, I took that from him.”“He’s a lord!” says Kaelyn “He has servants, other fae who answer to him, and the effects of your psychic power are so obvious even I can feel it!”Ahh shit....You can’t go stamping around the waystation like this. You shrink down to your normal size and extend your tentacles, peeling Dev out of the warmech “Grab a Rainya would you?” you say to Lirael and Kaelyn, each of them picking up two of Rainyas bodies, as you pick up the other two in your tentacles and all of you head up the stairs as fast as your exhausted limbs will carry you.You can see the doorway ahead of you, you pull open the doorway and you all stagger through, those of you that can walk, at least, safe at last, for now. You slump down, exhausted.“My father” says Kaelyn bitterly “My own father.”You struggle for something to say, as the Rainyas and Dev slowly shake off the despair. For you it’s gone completely.[-10 no longer in effect]
>>38108972>Leveling up Feast of life?Doesn't really help, vampire healing doesn't count either.
>>38108956I'm expecting someone like Twodee. Motherfucker's gonna have a killsat and killbots and a big suit of custom power armor with spinnin' rims on it for no reason.
“You knew already” you say “This was just him admitting it.”“Still” says Kaelyn bitterly “I didn’t expect it, I hoped you were wrong somehow, that it was something he’d made you see for you to accept me or some trick or, or something at least!”Lirael staggers over and hugs Kaelyn, muttering something soothing to her, Kaelyn wraps an arm around her.“Your father-” you start to say.“-is still very upset with you young lady” says Lord Reaper, walking through the entrance with a half-dozen richly dressed Fae with him. He looks around “Oh, a personal realm, how quaint.”You struggle to your feet, ready to fight, even if you can’t win. You concentrate and Reaper and his allies are surrounded by a massive steel box, which shatters into fragments, and then they keep walking towards you. You summon boulders, sea-monsters, all sorts of horrors you can think of, but nothing stops their advance, until once again Lord Reaper has you suspended by your throat, his fist squeezing the life out of you. Is this his favourite pose? You feel sorry for his lovers.The other Fae corral your allies, keeping them from you, one grabs Kaelyn and pulls her away, she punches him in the throat and he doubles over in pain, two more grab her. Your allies look ready to keep fighting, but you wonder how you can possibly win.“How dare you lay hands on my child” hisses Lord Reaper “you don’t have the right!” Your vision starts to grey out.Something vast bursts from the ocean, an island big enough to rival the one you made. It rises and rises and rises, resolving into a massive, vaguely humanoid head. Shoulders and the rest of the body follow it, until your ocean only laps around its ankles.Down from the sun descends a figure of burning light with red skin and fiery wings. At the same time the entire sky turns black, and a shadowy dragon of darkness drifts slowly down.
A monstrous sea beast rises, showing a beaked maw and dozens of lashing tentacles. “How appropriate” says the Ichor, to Lord Reaper “I was just about to tell you the same thing.”As the other fae back away, and look at the exit hopefully, Lord Reaper stands his ground against Baalzamon, The Ichor in the Depths, The King of Hell, and Jagganatha.“What” he says, enunciating every word clearly “are you doing here?”“Our agreement was simple” says the Ichor “no hunting the Reunited, not unless they broke laws, in which case appropriate punishment was allowed.”“This thing!” says Lord Reaper, shaking you violently “Took my daughter, payback is in order.”“Your daughter went willingly” rumbles Jagganatha.“She is under age!” says Lord Reaper “I decide if she went willingly or not!”“Much as I don’t like it” says the King of Hell “He does have a point, sort of.”“Family is important” agrees the Ichor.“But what if there were stronger ties” whispers Baalzamon “or some other loophole, after all, what are rules? Nothing.”“What do you propose?” says Jagganatha“A choice” says Baalzamon “Our Reunited can choose to save girl, or betray her and let her go back to her father.”“No!” thunders Lord Reaper “I will not-” a casual slap from one of the Ichors tentacles sends him sprawling, even as another delicately wraps around you, supporting you.“I agree” says the Ichor in the Depths “I will offer to save the girl, for a price.”“As will I” says Baalzamon “Of course”“Either way you make a powerful enemy” says Jagganatha “I’m in.”“No good ruler abandons those who follow him” says the King of Hell, hovering above you “I agree, the terms?”
“She can ask a favour from one of us” says Baalzamon “but to make more interesting...we tell her the terms, if she agrees, she must only promise to complete the allotted task and” he turns on Lord Reaper “any attack on her accept under the usual rules will be a violation of the agreement.” Lord Reaper climbs to his feet and yells “I will not stand for this!”“Then sit” says the Ichor in the Depths, slapping him with a tentacle again, knocking him down.“If she refuses” says Baalzamon “Then whomever she asked withdraws the offer, and she can ask another, until all options are gone, of course, she can also choose to hand the girl back to her father.”Oh great, you think, you can ask one of the Four for help, and they’ll set a price on Kaelyns life, refuse that one, and there are three chances left. And they don’t seem to want to tell you the terms of their offers until you pick them, no pressure...Kaelyn walks up to you and lays a hand on your arm “It’s ok” she says “I’ll go, you don’t need to bargain for my life, I’ll go.”“He’ll brainwash you” you say “He’ll make you forget.”“True” says Kaelyn, tears in her eyes “But what else is there?” she kisses you on the cheek “Thank you for being my friend Shee, thank you, I really will miss you.” and then turns to go.What do you do?>Ask Baalzamons terms>Ask The King of Hells terms>Ask Jagganathas terms>Ask Ichor in the Depths terms>Let Kaelyn go (The Ichor in the Depths *Disapproves* of this and will remove favour)
>>38108799>I think Body Control and Durability's heightened natural healing rates count,They do
>>38109034This is the first time I'm sad we pissed off Mirror. All Five coming would have been even better.>>38109057>Ask Jagganathas terms
>>38109057>Ask Jagganathas termsDaily reminder that Mirror sucks horse penis.
>>38109057>>Ask Ichor in the Depths terms
>>38109057>Ask Jagganathas termsOkay, so order should beJagganatha>Baalzamon>Ichor>KingLeave Baalzamon out if you really don't want o even ask for some reason.Although I'm sure I already know what Ichor will ask.
Forged by BattleYou have gained 10XPThis XP has limits on what it is spent upon (physical abilities, combat skills and Gifts of Jagganatha).
>>38109057>>Ask The King of Hells termsI think he will ask us to take over the resistance, doable.
>>38109057>Ask Ichor in the Depths terms
>>38109057>Ask Jagganathas termsOh man, this is too good. No matter what comes, this entire threads shit was worth it for this scene alone.
>>38109126Can we buy that thing we took from Reaper? That ability sealer thing? It counts as a combat skill, right?
>>38109057>Ask Ichor in the Depths termsOut of all of them I expect the least harshness from mom.
>>38109057>Ask Baalzamons termsShouldn't we ask "worst" first?
>>38109126Maybe you should add a "Forged by Battle: # XP" line underneath the standard Unspent XP line in the pastebin.
>>38109057>Ask Jagganathas terms>>38109164We should, but good luck trying to get people to do so.
>>38109155>It counts as a combat skill, right?Nope, sorry
>Ask Baalzamons termsOkay, who do we least want to get a favour from? Have him go first
>>38109057>Ask The Reaper his terms/set ours
>>38109057>Ask Jagganathas terms
>>38109057>Ask Baalzamons termsIf not, then>Ask Jagganathas terms
>>38109184I think we should go withBaalzamonKing of Hell Momand then JagganathaMom is less likely to give a bad deal is she knows she is not the last option, same goes for the King
We should ask Baalzamon, I bet he is gonna ask us to kill a whole bunch of shadow vampires for him.
>>38109232No, it'll probably be to kill the Walker in the Void, not just the lesser vampires.
>>38109232That would be a pretty sweet deal.Personally, though, I'm hoping he asks us to mindrape the cops who did the raid on Dust Town and turn them against Kulrathe.
>>38109198hmm, this might actually be interesting, we should do this firstand then>>38109184>>38109220
>>38109220I think after this we should goBaalzamon>Mom>King.There is a good chance Baalzamon wants us to kill the Walker, I fear I know what Mom wants and I'm not okay with it, King is probably the best we will get.
Jagganatha it is, writing
And then the King will demand something with a cost too big. And anon will whine.
>>38109258Baalzamon>Mom>King>JaggieIs fine be me tooor evenJaggie>Mom>King>Baalzamon could be ok too
>>38109258What do you think Mom wants? Have children with Kae?
>>38109057>>Ask Baalzamons termsFind out what mr shadows his price.
>>38109276Then there isn't anything we can do about it.But he is the only one where I can't think of anything too terrible he could ask.>>38109292On my list thats the second worst she's gonna ask. But there is something worse I've been paranoid off for a while now.
>>38109057>she must only promise to complete the allotted task andSounds like Baalzi just gave us a nudge-nudge wink-wink loophole there.He just said that rules are nothing and there's always some loophole, and then he said that the only thing required of us is to promise. He never said we actually have to follow through.
>>38109254Pallys called it. Pitty, we could have offered to kill Walker in the Void for him when he lands and got Baalzamon favor.
>>38109338We can still reject Jagga.Thats why we asked him first, otherwise we would have asked King.
>inb4 jaggie says "Beat The Reaper to death here and now and claim his daughter as your own." and then flexes at us
They're all going to be bad. This is just a terrible day for Shee.
>>38109331That magnificent bastard.Pally, is this actually a legitimate thing that Baalzamon intended or just a quirk of your wording?
>>38109338>>38109353Yeah, we can ask him afterwards, If we can convince the other anonsor maybe even get Pally to include it as an option
>>38109331Huh. I wonder if you're right and he'd take that as a sign of respect and give us +1 favor or if he'd just go nuclear assmad on us like he did with the shadow vamps.
>>38109331Thats definitly his intention, but that doesn't mean they will let us just ignore what we agree on.Only that we have some wiggle room, we will have to be celever about it and take the nature of the respective god into account.Pulling this with Jagga would be alot less bad than with Mom.
>>38109331> I really want to consider Baalz offer now
>>38109369Based Jagga.I would totally aggree with that. If we don't have to fear him reincarnating into Kae, I'm pretty sure we could kill him.
>>38109372The Five don't want to dick you over, anon. I mean, maybe their favors wouldn't be the *best* thing for you to do, but none of them are going to offer entirely ridiculous things. Baalzamon wouldn't ask you to betray a loved one, Jaggantha wouldn't ask you to go full retard, etc.They *want* you to succeed, and maybe get a better understanding of what their aspects really mean while you're at it.At least, that's how I've been viewing favor requests. Still vote against getting it most of the time because we've just got too much shit to do already.>>38109430If he gives us a full restore as part of that, then yeah, I'd go for it.
You turn to Jagganatha “My Lord, what would you ask of me?”Jagganatha rubs his chin thoughtfully “Though you have not sought my favour” he rumbles “Still conflict and challenges have found you, my task for you is this: walk to the edge of the desert and cast thirteen droplets of blood into the sand and then walk into the desert for three days, there you will see an old man sitting upon a rock, chained to it actually, I would have you break the chain and smash the rock.”As you stare at him rather confused by this odd request, Baalzamon starts chuckling, and then laughing, shrieking with mirth “I wish I’d thought of that!” he cackles “Yes, do that, go for that one!”The Ichor in the Depths lashes her arms “No!” she bellows “I’ll not allow this!”“It’s her decision” points out the King of Hell, indicating you.“It is death!” Bellows the Ichor.“Will it kill me?” you ask the Behemoth“Not necessarily” he rumbles “Though the prisoner has...wardens who will try to stop you, and you must face this challenge alone.”“What will happen if I do this?” you ask him“A great many people will die” he says “And the horrors of ancient will once more walk upon this world, within a year, the dead will outnumber the living.”Oh great, a world-spanning catastrophe.Accept deal?>YN
>>38109353>>38109386We can go one better anons, noone said we can't offer The Reaper terms before we reject Jaggie, 5 buyers makes it a sellers market.
>>38109331Sounds like you must make a good attempt, including preparing to accomplish the deed. Work towards it in good faith, even if you fall short in the end.
>>38109463Isn't this the sort of thing that we promised Lirael that we wouldn't do?N
>>38109463>Y I love it
>>38109463>NI knew it. It's just going to be bullshit all the way down the line.
>>38109463>NDammit Jaggantha.Although, he probably intends for us to try and stop or kill the prisoner and become stronger.But seriously, fuck that, not doing it, let's see what Baalz has on offer.
>>38109463>NIs it ancient Fae?
>>38109463>NLets hear the others out
>>38109463Would I have a chance to prevent that outcome, even if I accmplish the task?
>>38109463NDoes not even remotely line up with Shee's goals.
>>38109463>NWell that's horrifying.
>>38109463>Ask Kea if she knows anything about this and Reaper if he wants to cut a deal.
>>38109517"Very unlikely" rumbles Jagganatha "But if you did, I would be impressed."
>>38109463>YPretty sure he wants us to kill the dude and prevent that from happening. Thats exactly the sort of loophole Baalz meant.
>>38109540Some gods just want to watch the world burn.>>38109500It seems to be almost exactly what we promised Lirael we wouldn't become/do.>>38109455Apparently your optimism was misplaced and the Five are actually all a bunch of cocks.
>>38109548kill him, break chain, but I still say no
>He wants us to unchain the mad fae god of the desert who everyone has caused pants-shitting ever since he was mentionedFucking Jaggantha...Ok, I guess we're doing Baalzi next because he's going to offer something as bad or worse than this and I don't want to get forced into his deal because we put him off until the end.
>>38109571>and the Five are actually all a bunch of cocksNot really, its just a big task for a big favour.We can kill that dude and prevent all of this, and he never said WHEN we have to do it.
>>38109463>Ywen can just kill the dude and the plagues or whatever.
Ichor will honestly probably offer a good deal. It might be a bit iffy on the romance or personal side but I think we're safe from ending the fucking planet with it.
Hopefully mom's is just make lots and lots of babies with Rainya...
>>38109463>YSince the guy is obviously evil, we kill him while he is helpless, then we smash the rock and chain. Easy.
ok, calling vote here for *N*, writing, vote on next option will be posted soon, please don't vote until asked to
>>38109632I very much doubt that looking at Jaggas offer.But I think Mom is either going to be pretty easy, or absolutely horryfying.
>>38109638He's not helpless. People obviously want him gone and the only reason he's still alive is because they can't kill him.
>>38109671Or because he got wardens.
>>38109578Hopefully he just wants us to kill the Walker in the Void. Or we can offer to kill the Walker. I want to work murdering a vampire into this somehow.>>38109632I doubt it. She previously said she doesn't actually want us to reproduce quite yet since it would be incredibly dangerous for our family due to the contest.>>38109668Regretting my vote for N somewhat.
That sounds like a really bad idea “Thank you Unstoppable One” you say respectfully “but I must decline, unleashing such horrors on the world would not be in the best interests of myself or those I care for.”“You might be surprised who it would benefit” says Jagganatha “but very well.”Next you will ask>Ask Baalzamons terms >Ask The King of Hells terms >Ask Lord Reapers terms >Ask Ichor in the Depths terms >Let Kaelyn go (The Ichor in the Depths *Disapproves* of this and will remove favour)
>>38109707>Ask Baalzamons terms
>>38109648Can we get a discussion time then a vote afterwards on the offers next?
>>38109707>Ask Baalzamons terms Cmon cmon murder the walker in the void cmon big money big money no whammie no whammie!
>>38109707>Ask Lord Reapers terms
>>38109707>Ask Baalzamons terms>“You might be surprised who it would benefit”Oh? Lirael, I assume.
>>38109707>>Ask Baalzamons terms
>>38109707>Ask Ichor in the Depths termsI would say Baalz, but people were willing to accept Jag's, and that really worries me.
>>38109707>Ask Baalzamons terms>>38109726Seconding this request, might be good. Even if just 5min.>>38109738>Thinking Ichors will be betterHahahahaha
>inb4 the man chained to the rock was our dad
>>38109738I'm more worried about Ichor's and Baalz might surprise us. Jag's wasn't even that bad, we could probably kill the guy.>>38109671Impossibility, doesn't matter if other jerks can't kill him.
>>38109707>Ask Ichor in the Depths terms
>>38109756Not really. But I expect Baalz's to be plain awful.
>>38109707>Ask Baalzamons termsHopefully he asks us to kill the Walker, thats something literally everyone in the room is okay with.
>>38109768haha that would be great
>>38109726>>38109756very well, next will be 5 min discussion followed by 5 min vote
>>38109753You need to link to Pallys post I think.
>>38109707>>Ask Ichor in the Depths terms
>>38109792But can we actually do that? And why on earth do we give two fucks about what Reaper wants?
>>38109788>But I expect Baalz's to be plain awful.It probably will be, but thats why he comes next, instead of having him last, there is a moderate chance his offer will be acceptable but tricky.>>38109768We know he's dead. We've seen him die.
>>38109792Hopefully the fact that doing so would be very difficult and Baalzamon would really want it will make it so instead of it arbitrarily being something more controversial.>>38109822Maybe, but it'll be hard. I don't think Reaper was counted. He also might've meant the thread, referring to it as a room.>>38109823Did we, anon? Did we?
Baalzamon is ithue hue hue
>>38109822>But can we actually do that?I think we have a fair chance, actually.If properly prepared.>And why on earth do we give two fucks about what Reaper wants?He hears our task too, it would minimize the chance of him trying to interfere to make our agreement void.
>>38109822>And why on earth do we give two fucks about what Reaper wants?Because we can get terms that might make everyone happy and let Kae keep her officeal power.We lose nothing and gain an extra offer
>>38109877Okay, its apparently not the Walker. Damn shame that.Now I'm curious.
>>38109898That smiley had been put on the wrong order
>>38109914Why are you happy? If it's not the Walker, we're probably going to reject it. If it is, I was going to try to find a reason to do that anyway.It's probably just Pally fucking with us anyway.
>>38109877Its something with Quinn, isn't it?
>>38109941pally is laughing about something which means the is gong to be CAPITAL F U N
>>38109987Or he's fucking with us, he likes to do that.
>>38109987Yeah that doesn't mean we should just take it...
I still really want to know who Jagga meant.Oh shit.Could he mean Dev?
“Lord of Shadows and Darkness” you say “What would you ask of me?”A pall of darkness falls over the whole place, your eyes cannot see through it, but you can dimly make out the shapes of the Four.“Your allies cannot see or hear us” says Baalzamon, coiling around you “this is important. My deal is no world-shaping disaster, but rather a personal goal of mine...”Please be about killing shadow vampires, please be about killing shadow vampires, please be about killing shadow vampires...“I want you to capture one of the Walkers servants” whispers Baalzamon “They misuse their powers yes?”“Yes..?” you agree“But the principle is sound” says Baalzamon “But a fresh start is needed, a new clan of vampires with shadow powers.”You don’t like where this is going...“The young Graced girl” says Baalzamon “have her learn the powers of shadow mastery, once she has completed the Path of Shadows I will whisper my secrets to her and she will grow up to be the head of a new clan, and possibly still your good friend, won’t that be fun?”“How do I even convince the vampire to teach Lirael?” you ask.“Well” says Baalzamon “That’s up to you...and I’m glad you spotted my little joke, but just between you and me, you have one week before the girl must take the first step on the Path of Shadows, otherwise the deals off...”“I need a moment to think” you say, darkness all around you.5 minutes until vote. Questions will be answered as best I can.
I really have no idea what the King might want.
>>38110037Fuck the hell no.
>>38110037Okay this is suspiciously acceptable.There is a catch here.
>>38110037Fuck. That.>possibly still your good friendFuck. That.
>>38110037Fuck the hell yes. Lirael with Shadow Powers, that's be awesome, she'd be as versatile as Sireyi was.
>>38110037No way. Eat a bag a dicks.
>>38110004Eather way I'm excited.>>38110005That is not fun>>38110037hahahahahahaha Fantastic!
>>38110037I actually wanted that anyway.But Baalzamon wanting it too, I'm not sure.This is probably the best offer we will get, and since we know its happening, our Family and Corruption power can protect her from undue influence through Baalzamon.
>>38110037Baalzamon why.You were doing so well.I almost started to like you.>>38110073We can get her shadow powers without selling her to Baalzamon.
>>38110052>>38110071>>38110074Why? Do you think he's going to turn her against us or something?
...uh, I see no downsides to this. Can we ask him if it there is a loophole and come back to his deal after we see the other deals?
>>38110098At the very least. Yeah yeah I do.
>>38110098>Do you think he's going to turn her against us or something?I think he's going to try and turn her into something she's not. I just want the poor girl to be able to grow up happy and free from as much mental influence from outside forces as we can prevent.
>>38110092>without selling her to BaalzamonSilly hyperboles don't make you look good.We literally can not get her shadow powers without Baalzamon getting a say in it.>>38110103I think this is actually just a case of him wanting something really bad that we can provide.
>>38110037>I need to talk to some others first. (Lirael and maybe Reaper)
>>38110098I don't want her to be a pawn in his games.
>>38110098yes... >I will whisper my secrets to her and she will grow up to be the head of a new clan, and possibly still your good friend, won’t that be fun?”If that doesn't sound ominous I don't know what does.I'm inclined to say yas tho
>>38110128no anon, He's a pawn in her games.
>>38110115"Oh no" whispers Baalzamon "That rather defeats the point, don't you think?"
>>38110098He's going to try to warp her into his own personal clan vampire. Worse we're not deciding for Shee we'd be deciding for Lirael.>I whisper my secrets into her earOr something to that extent. We're agreeing for her.. That's a no go
>>38110128She lives with us; she already is. This would just upgrade her to a Queen instead of a Pawn.
>>38110037Sure, lets trust the bad man in shadows.Whats the worst that could happen.He seems like an upstanding type.
>>38110092We're not seeling her to him, though. We still will have too much influence on her for him to counter anything.
>>38110037>you have one week before the girl must take the first step on the Path of ShadowsHe never says swhen she needs to reach MASTERY. So we can have her learn the first step, and then stop until we got enough Family to keep her out of his clutches if necessary.>>38110037Does learning Shadow powers harm Liraels mind by itself?
>>38110114>We literally can not get her shadow powers without Baalzamon getting a say in it.Yes, we can. She can access shadow powers without Baalzamon being able to say shit about it. Even if we can't, that's more an argument to not get shadow powers than anything else.Not that it overly matters, since I plan to kill Baalzamon and the rest of these assholes eventually.>>38110149The less relevant she is to him, the better.
Accept Baalzamons terms?>Y/N5 minute vote
>>38110186>NHell no. Hands off the daughteru.
>>38110186>YThis is the best offer we will get, I know his angle but I'm confident we can outplay him.
>>38110186Nthis is better than the last but i cant...
>>38110211outplay the god of outplay... yeah
>Ichor asks us to fuck Lirael.
>>38110186NLitael, lady of light and shadow. Her mom said no to those for a reason.
>>38110186>YThis actually quite good.
>>38110145>>38110037Then I vote yes and will seek to get Reaper to give better terms but also try to get Lirael this power. (does this please Baalzamon?)
>>38110186>NHow people can even consider it is beyond me.
>>38110186>>YIchor's favour will be too fetishistic to my tastes, I'm guessing it. And I actually fear what the fuck the King will ask.This, though, is pretty harmless to everyone involved.
>>38110240Typed that wrong. Still Y though.
>>38110257Except fucking Lirael are you high?
>>38110186>YHow can anyone refusethis?
>>38110186>N>>38110257I'd rather enter Ichor's magical realm than sell out Lirael. And I don't care if you think it's hyperbole or not, that's how I feel.>>38110207It is not in any way a good deal, the only remotely redeemable part is exploiting a loophole and using our own godhood to make Baalzamon's mental influence fuck the hell off.
For fairness sake I will make sure to mention that this will definitly make enemies out of Liraels parents. Which is exactly the angle Baalzamon is playing here.
>>38110271Fucking her how? This won't harm her or do anything abd to her, are YOU high?
>>38110192Deleting my vote because I honestly can't decide one way or another here.
>>38110186>YI'm >>38110246 so don't let that samefag.
>>38110186>YAll my want
I voted yes because anything but having to be impregnated with the Ichor's deep one spawn.
closing vote and counting
>>38110289He's going to alter her and give her his secrets. >Possibly still being your friend!He even hits that he's going to fuck with her.
>>38110313Pff, details. Shee's own aspects will counter that.Corruption+Family+Imposibility. Good combination for this. Inevitability will also help a lot.
>>38110289>This won't harm herIt definitly can.We have a good chance to prevent it, but this is a deal we have to be very very careful with.Baalzamon will allow us to get out of this looking good, but if we give him the chance he WILL fuck us over.Thats just the sort of guy he is.
>>38110325You forget that Baalzamon is a FUCKING GOD.We are not.And it won because some cunt deleted his N vote.
>>38110325Are you just trying to fuck up the quest for everyone else? Do you enjoy ruining things?
>>38110358>We are not.For now.
Yes won with 13/14.
I'd have sooner handed Kae over to her dad than sell out Lirael. We can't out con the God of betrayal.
>accept offer from Baalz, nobody knowsNow what is you offer mom
>>38110306I'd say that it would be perfectly acceptable to take one for the team. Definitely better than handing Lirael over to Baalzamon.OP would have field day with playing on Anon's shadowruns, I guarantee. Besides it seems inconsistent to save Kaelyn and then de facto betray Lirael.
>>38110325Indomitability would be a far better Aspect for preventing it, but I'm not sure if we'll be allowed to get it.>>38110372There's a time limit, you will not be a god within this time limit.
Wow, a yes vote, surprised, alright, writing.
>>38110386>We can't out con the God of betrayal.Anon. e are literally the future Goddess of doing impossible shit.Our Domains include >Making people like we want them to beand>Protecting those we care aboutWe totally can outcon him in this.
fuck.. I regret deleting my no now...Selling her out is wrong..
>>38110410Because of idiots and their fucking samefagging.Fuck this, we just need to get that shard out of Kae and kill Reaper, or find some way to be outside his reach, I am not going through with this deal and everyone that voted for it can eat a dick.
>>38110405>de facto betray LiraelIts not a betrayal.You forget, we have a direct link to her mind.I do expect a return of the gGauntlet of Feelowship when we tell Lirael.
There are 29 fucking votes with 28 ips. There were 31 votes before fuckers started deleting theres.>>38110423Then why the fuck did you?
>>38110410Wow, this blizzard must be hitting hell too because things I vote for never win
>>38110411Yeah. Because all of our plans have gone flawlessly thoughout this quest. Beating the god of betrayal should be no problem...
>>38110410...I demand final destination.please
Pally will you leave this option?>>38110389
>>38110405Well, I'd have preferred going with the King, but there was only ever one vote to ask him. He'd give us a cool task like take control of the criminal underworld or something. I feared it'd be Ichor next.I do kind of regret the vote now, but, well, we'll see how this goes.
>>38110454XD Cuz I cn't decide n' i thuht i shoudn;t fvote!
>>38110389Seconding except Reaper then mum.
>>38110410So, who else wants to go unleash that prisoner to keep Reaper off our back and completely not go through with this shitty deal?Because I do. I want to unleash an apocalypse. Spitepocalypse.>>38110441>You forget, we have a direct link to her mind.You forget, NO WE FUCKING DON'T.>>38110460Because you suck dicks and I hate you and everything you ever vote for goddammit Baalzamon is such a fucking worthless cunt I hope we get options that displease him soon so we can alienate him like we did mirror.
>>38110467NO, fuck that, it will only happen again.
>>38110410Are you fucking serious?
>>38110492Please calm down
>>38110498There is nowhere to go but up from my viewpoint.And the vote *was* tied at closing, that N vote was only deleted after it had been closed.
>>38110485Thats okay tooBut I really want to head mom outand who says we can't accept too offers. That way we can actually back out of one of them
This is all kinds of fucked up.
>>38110461We have a pretty good record on these things.I'm not worried about what Baalz does, because he won't enter this equation until a long time in the future. Since the deal with him ISN'T for her to reach Shadow mastery anytime soon, and only then will he whisper her his secrets.Our deal is only to have her start.>>38110492>You forget, NO WE FUCKING DON'T.Uhm, yes we actually do.
>>38110492Might as well walk away from the quest anon. It's just going to get depressing now.
>>38110513NOFUCK YOUI WILL STAY ANGRYTHIS IS AN APPROPRIATE LEVEL OF ANGER>>38110539>>Uhm, yes we actually do.FUCKING PROVE ITIF YOU MEAN MENTAL CONTACT, THAT DOESN'T COUNT
>>38110556>FUCKING PROVE ITGestalt
>>38110570We're not in a gestalt you ass. That's a state not a constant thing.
>>38110570STILL NOT A PERMANENT LINK AND IT DOESN'T COUNTERACT THE FUCKING GOD FUCKING HER BRAIN YOU MENTALLY DAMAGED INBRED MONKEY FETUS
I hope the people in incoherent rage leave before we talk to Lirael about this.I don't want them to shit this up.
We can let the week go by I guess. Though that's it's own shitstorm too.
>>38110587I get your anger I do, but dude, calm down. We might be able to worm out of this still
>>38110598That will only fuck Shee much, much worse.Like, quest ending worse.
>>38110595GONNA FUCK IT UP DELIBERATELY SO THAT SHE SAVES HERSELF FROM US
>>38110587>STILL NOT A PERMANENT LINKAnd I never said permanent, I said direct.Gestalt allows us to know everything she knows, so if Baalzamon tries to tell her shit, we will know.
Can you tell us what the other offers would have been at the end of the thread at least, Pally?
>>38110528My thinking is the more offers we have to come the weaker The Reapers bargaining position is.
>>38110637Will do it ICNext update will be the last, next thread tomorrow in just under 15 hours
>>38110637I'd prefer he didn't, the shitstorm will only be worse then.
>>38110625AND WHAT WILL YOU FUCKING DO ANON?!YOU THINK YOU CAN BEAT HIS PSYCHIC SURGERY CHECK OR MENTAL PROTECTIONS?!DO YOU?!>>38110619>>Like, quest ending worse.PERHAPS DEATH WILL BRING PEACE>>38110618I WILL CALM DOWN WHEN THE SITUATION IS UNFUCKED AND NOT A MOMENT SOONER
Well thanks for the quest pally but I'm fucking done. Samefagging as ruined it. Thanks for it so far but it's plagued this shit from day one and now that it could actually fuck us samgefag decided to throw in with the god of lies because XD GREAT DEAL HES TOTALLY LEGIT!1
>>38110528>That way we can actually back out of one of themI'm fairly sure nothing currently says we can only accept those offers right now.Only that once they've been given we can't go back.I voted Y because Lirael can choose if she does this or not. If she doesn't want to, we take the fallout from Baalz and ask Mom and Dad.
Damn. Today's threads have just been terrible for Shee.
>>38110684No anon. Not even the dead can know peace from this awesome.
I really hope "Whisper my secrets" is just Baalzafag-speak for "give her sweet powerups" and not "brutal mindrape"...
>>38110661>Next update will be the last, next thread tomorrow in just under 15 hoursCan we still try and get more offers please?
>>38110702Actually we've decided for her and made a compact with a God. She's fucked. Or horribly betrayed by Shee. It was an unbelievably stupid thing to agree to.I still can't believe pally took 29 votes with 28 fucking ips.
>>38110712I genuinely hate you, anon, and I want you to know that I will be voting to destroy our relationship with Baalzamon or even reneg on the deal whatever the cost.This deal, has already lost, it is nothing, and it will be nothing. Burn.
>>38110661Ah, thanks for that. Getting that conversation at the start tomorrow, instead of when tempers run high, will definitly help.
Watch mom's be something that was totally agreeable.
>>38110743>I really hope "Whisper my secrets" is just Baalzafag-speak for "give her sweet powerups" and not "brutal mindrape"...It's both, you mook.>>38110773I will be here and *exactly* as angry as I am right now. Which is complete blinding fury to the point that I couldn't even type properly before now.
>>38110749>Actually we've decided for herNo we didn't. We can ask her if she agrees with this and if she says no, we carry the consequences.Hell, Shadow isn't even among the powers her Mom told her not to get.
How can we do this to Lirael ;_;
>>38110743>and not "brutal mindrape"Baalz doesn't do brutal mindrape, thats Kings domain.He will definitly try to influence her though.
>>38110811Let's hope the vote goes that way then. Otherwise we just turned Shee into a fucking monster.
>>38110826Because the Baalzabitches samefagged like the worthless, traitorous whores they are.
>>38110753I do what I do for you anon.
>>38110805Possible, Hindsight being 20/20.But it could also be something completly horrifying, and we wouldn't have known.
>>38110840He's going to warp her fucking mind. With our fucking go ahead because this quest is samefagged and pally doesn't give two fucks. And now that everyone upset samefag is going to run around talking about how everyone just needs to calm down. He's only fucked everything up! God!
>>38110870>But it could also be something completly horrifyingYOU MEAN LIKE WHAT YOU JUST AGREED TO?
Ok. Time for damage control.We only agreed to get her on the path. She just needs to learn the first shadow thing and we're good.Maybe just be straight with her? See if she is willing or has any desire to go further. If she doesn't, I guess we start trying to weasel. If she does, then maybe Baalzi will be nicer with her since she's actually willingly following him.I mean, he hasn't mindraped Shee and she's been given some pretty sweet powerups by him, so maybe he won't fuck with Lirael r-right?;_;
>>38110870inb4 she asks Shee to becoem a broodmother.
>>38110870I can't imagine it'll be too much worse than what we just did. I never thought people would actually turn on Lirael.
>>38110909we didn't turn on her. we're making her more powerful.
>>38110901Shit, anon, I'd prefer that over this.That's my fetish.
>>38110845>Let's hope the vote goes that way then.I don't see it not going that way, I heavily doubt anyone here wishes Lirael ill.If Shadow would have been among the powers her Mom warned her off, I wouldn't have agreed. And then there is this clause:> once she has completed the Path of Shadows I will whisper my secrets to herMeaning, according to this deal, he will only gets to whisper to her once she has reached complete mastery.But our deal does not say that she has to do that.
>>38110891>he won't fuck with LiraelIf he uses even the slightest bit of mental influence, the Five will become Six and then Five again very shortly thereafter, before moving onto One.The worst part is that most of Baalzamon's mental influence can't be fucking detected.
>>38110870No fuck your hindsight 20/20 shit. That's an excuse for a bad fucking choice.>>38110891No. There is no damage control for this you idiot. It's an agreement with a god. He hasn't been giving Shee all of his fucking secrets by whispering into her goddamn ear.
Wracked by indecision you try to imagine what would happen if you say yes, or what the Ichor or the King of Hell might ask of you. Finally you decide, after all, The Shadow is betrayal and double-dealing right? He’d probably be disappointed if you *didn’t* attempt to outwit him in this.“I accept” you whisper.“You won’t regret it” Baalzamon whispers back, lord of lies that he is.With that the darkness is lifted and you see Jagganatha shrug, the King of Hell shake his head and The Ichor last her tentacles angrily.Baalzamon swoops down on the fae, including Lord Reaper, as soon as his form conceals theirs, they are gone from your Realm.Your friends, your allies just look confused, and a little scared. You wonder if you have made the right choice.“What would you have asked?” you ask the Ichor and the King of Hell, wondering, second guessing your choice.“Does it matter?” asks the Ichor sadly “you have made a bargain now?”“No take-backs” says Baalzamon smugly. Jagganatha simply sinks beneath the waves, leaving your Realm.“I would have had you grand demon-hood to those of my followers that follow you” says the King of Hell “Some of those who now work for you and who are part of my Church desire power, longevity, youth, all sorts of things. I would have had you undertake smaller tasks to buy their ascension.”Damn...“And I would have offered you a choice of two tasks” says The Ichor “Knowing your...reserved nature. I would have had you bring the oceans back to this world, though some would have drowned in the rising flood, or for you to take a minimum of three lovers in the next oh, month or so.” Well maybe... “And the girl with the extra bodies would still only count as one” adds the Ichor. Ah, well, that’s that.All of the gods slowly fade from your realm, Baalzamon is the last to leave, and you are left facing your friends, who are in varying states of shock and upset. You wonder how you will explain it to them.
>>38110929Lirael is not reunited. She cannot become the Sixth.
>>38110891I conquer. We have to tell and hear her out on this. This might not be too badQ_Q
http://strawpoll.me/3658064>>38110958He was talking about Shee.
>>38110954Damn. Ichor would have beens shit, but Kings would have been good.
>>38110954Thanks for letting a samefag fuck this up pally. Really fucking appreciate it. The quest is fucked for me.
>>38110924Me too anyday, even if its gross we won't be fucking people over that we care for
>>38110891>Maybe just be straight with her?I see literally no reason not to be straight with her.
>>38110958I meant Shee, I was implying we murder Baalzamon and then the rest.>>38110954Oh, look, the other two were both perfectly fine. Or better, at least. I'd rather drown the planet than go through with this samefagged bullshit.
>>38111015>Oh, look, the other two were both perfectly fine.No they weren't.King was fine, but since he's the god of brutal mindrape, it could have been very well not fine.
>>38110891>Maybe just be straight with her? See if she is willing or has any desire to go further. If she doesn't, I guess we start trying to weasel. If she does, then maybe Baalzi will be nicer with her since she's actually willingly following him.I voted n, however, this might not b3 too bad.The shadow powers she dislikes cause they are creepy, thats it.I think Ball wants a clan to say fuck you to the other clan as a counter weight.I say that this bumps up freeing her parents some.If we can get realisitc aituations where it would be useful, it should not take too long to convince her.
Thread ends here. For your actions today you gain 8XP. Thank you for playing.Metapost regarding voting incoming.
>>38110954Even though I don't like poly, I'd have much preferred Ichor's to selling a little girl to the god of lies. Hell, Rainya would have probably even been down for it. How's she going to react when she finds out about the deal we did make?
>>38110994>>38111015Ah, ok, ok. Misunderstanding cleared.>>38110954Wow King. Could you be even more of a lenient? What a small thing to ask for.
>>38111039>The shadow powers she dislikes cause they are creepy, thats it.She doesn't even dislike them. She has just heard people who use them are creepy and weird.Its not even as bad as Destruction.We can get through this by having her learn the first level, and then stay there.Bargain fulfilled, and if Baalzi tries to whsiper her then, we can call foul and have Mom intervene.
>>38111069We're basically his granddaughter, in a slightly more literal sense than being the child of any of the other Five.
>>38111048Thanks for running, it was fundespite the bad atmosphere
>>38111081WE AGREED TO LETTING HIM WHISPER YOU CAN'T CALL FUCKING FOUL ON WHAT YOU'VE AGREED TO!Everyone he's doing exactly what we asked him too! stooop hiiim!
>>38111081>if Baalzi tries to whsiper her thenThe thing is, we can't really detect that. At all.>>38111115Blame the Baalzabitches.
First of all, regarding this decision. I hope I have made it clear in the update that Shee is wracked by doubt over her decision. In the next thread and the conversation with her allies, especially Lirael, Shee might recant and try to change the bargain, or switch to another of the Five. The price may be steeper as a result.Regarding voting and yes, what looked like 31 (29 after 2 deletions) votes with 28IPs on the counter (including me).Did someone vote more than once? Looks like they didWould Final Destination change things? Probably not, this was a 5 minute yes/no vote after discussion, all it would have done is cleaned up the vote to avoid nesting and switching, and given people another chance to push their choice.Who was samefagging? Can’t say, winning vote, losing vote, don’t know. All I can say is that there was 1 deleted vote for each option, and the winning vote won only by 1, so a very close vote either way.Does this routelock selling Lirael to Baalzamon? It does not. You are supposed to be Impossibility. I have faith in players ability to rules-lawyer their way out of it.
>>38111118>WE AGREED TO LETTING HIM WHISPERAt least learn to read, we agreed to let him whisper once she reached mastery, but we never agreed to let her reach mastery.
>>38111123Thanks for running pally, you're aces.
>>38111123>Does this routelock selling Lirael to Baalzamon? It does not. You are supposed to be Impossibility. I have faith in players ability to rules-lawyer their way out of it.So, basically, what >>38110891 said is totally valid?
>>38111123Since you give time for discussion could've made just FD.
>>38111123>The price may be steeper as a result.Okay, doing that, don't care what the task is.I hope it alienates Baalzabitch. I didn't even coin that term, but FUCK IF IT ISN'T ACCURATE.
>>38111122No point in assigning blame now, we will just have to figure out how to deal with the bad choices we apparently choose...>>38111123I didn't get the choice I hoped for, but I support your interpretation and choice 100%
>>38111123Thanks for running Pally, loking forward to tomorrow.
>>38111190>So, basically, what >>38110891 said is totally valid?Yes
>>38110954>“I would have had you grand demon-hood to those of my followers that follow you” says the King of Hell “Some of those who now work for you and who are part of my Church desire power, longevity, youth, all sorts of things. I would have had you undertake smaller tasks to buy their ascension.”Wouldn't that mean that we essentially lose the restaurant (or at the very least the staff gets massively downgraded)? I can't imagine they'd stay working at the restaurant as demons.
>>38111123>I have faith in players ability to rules-lawyer their way out of it.We were working on it but Baalzamon kicked Reaper Man out before we could.
>>38111244Why not? I think its even explicitly said that on higher levels there might be demons work for us. They could disguise themselves when serving
>>38111244They still could. The issue might be the smaller tasks he would ask for, since we would basically hand him a blanco-check for whatever he wants us to do.
>>38111238Ok, baller. Maybe make a note of thoughts like that in the narrative when Shee's doing her whole wracked-by-guilt thing? Should assuage at least some of the asshurt. I hope.
>>38111295Nope.Gonna do everything in my power to alienate Baalzamon at every turn from now until hiatus and reneg that deal whenever the opportunity comes up.
>>38111244>I can't imagine they'd stay working at the restaurant as demons.Depends how you sell it to them.If you get them a promotion no strings attached then no. If you say "I'll get you immortality but you have to keep working for me for 100 years after getting it" then yes.
>>38111123Great thread, Pally, maybe except for the ragers.Also, guys, chill. There are ways to not let Baalzamon get his claws on Lirael. What will you do when she decides to follow him out of her free will?
>>38111123In short, all is well. Thanks Pally, looking forward to the next thread.
>>38111319I really want to do this anyway, despite the deal we just made
>>38111327>What will you do when she decides to follow him out of her free will?We just have to raise her better than that.
>>38111295Shee just fucking soild out Lireal. Even wracked with doubt means jack shit. Shee sold the kid out.It's fucking unbelievable and shouldn't have fucking happened.>>38111327Fuck off samefag.
>>38111357Its a pretty cool thing to do, I agree.
>>38111327It wouldn't be willingly, Baalzamon has ways to warp people's minds in a way we can neither detect nor remove.>>38111329Hahahaha, no.
>>38111319The good supposedly motherly figure sells out her kid. Thanks pally Really fucking appreciate it.
>>38111370>Implying samefagging wasn't on both sides.
>Get Impossibility really really high>Get Family really really high>???>???>Pray
>>38111409>Sell out kid>Getting family
>>38111409Corruption too, actually.All three of our Aspects are basically tailored to keep Lirael safe in this.
>>38111319Can we spend the 10 bonus xp we got from jaggy forged for battle?
>>38111409If it could be, we should probably be stripped of the Family aspect.
>>38111382>AA is laughing at the statement that all is wellOnly now do I realize what a horrible mistake was made.>>38111393Yeah, I have no doubt we'd have lost favor with Ichor if Baalzamon hadn't prevented them from knowing what happened.>>38111404>Implying there are more than 4 pro-Baalzamon anons
>>38111429>Can we spend the 10 bonus xp we got from jaggy forged for battle?Sure you can, you can spend XP at any time
>>38111382>Baalzamon has ways to warp people's minds in a way we can neither detect nor removeIf he were willing to do this outside of the terms of our deal, he'd be doing it anyway.
Well i just caught up. Way to throw Lirael to the big bad shadow wolf guys. Fucking Morons.
>>38111437Thats not AA.
>>38111449Don't worry pally let the fact that you're upset bleed into the character! You can watch her make the wrong choice and be sad about it!
>>38111449Read the fucking thread, there are ways to not give her to baalzamon and we can't be blamed for it. Jesus.
>>38111449We can still undo it or ignore it.>>38111445>Implying it's not her learning shadow powers at rank 1 that lets him in
>>38111449I was thinking we could keep going and pick up more offers.
>>38111496Not him. Fuck you. "GOooood I ruined this for the rest of yall why are you upset!"
>>38111496The easiest way was not to vote for it. But yeah, I'm sure tricking him out of the deal will go swell.
>tfw I'm too bummed to properly sperg about spending xp
>>38111511That's because you're an idiot.
>>38111511It was pretty clear to everyone else that acceptance means you get that deal from the spiel by the Five early on.
>>38111549We explicitly can still seek a different deal later, as long as we haven't rejected it.That was always clear.
>>38111473Ok Mr. Condescending why did you think this was a good idea? There is a reason we are tight with King and Ichor, not Baalzamon or Jaggie. >>38111496I did, what you seem to forget is that it was voted for and that now he will mindrape because in order to save our asses she ahs to let him in.>>38111500And get killed by Kae's dad, we won't get any more offers that way.>>38111511It was made explicit once we accept we get no more offers. If you wanted to say yes off the bat you should have gone with a god we were tight with.
>>38111575>he will mindrape because in order to save our asses she ahs to let him in.No, only after Lirael masters the shadow mumbo jumbo, which will most definetly take a long while, if at all.
1 level of Artifice and one level of Forged By Battle using the xp from FBB?
>>38111575>It was made explicit once we accept we get no more offers.Stop making this shit up. We can still get more offers, and no point did it say we can't get a different deal.Pally himself explicitly said:>Shee might recant and try to change the bargain, or switch to another of the Five
>>38111632You missed part about price.
>>38111575>And get killed by Kae's dadIf we can't get a better deal, I'd prefer that, yeah.>>38111571Yes, but not as soon as I'd like, and we shouldn't have accepted this one in the first place.>>38111606Baalzamon can probably get in at rank 1 and we can't really detect or stop him.>>38111621No, disagree. Two levels of Durability.
>>38111654You think we won't be willing to pay any price they ask so Lirael has a choice?This is completly up to her.
>>38111571We shouldn't have had to do that in the fucking first place it should be abundantly clear that it was a horrible choice.
>>38111606>Thinking the god of betrayal is being straight with youHow cute.>>38111632You missed the part about it fucking us over possibly worse and that the good deals are off the table.>>38111656>If we can't get a better deal, I'd prefer that, yeah.Well guess you're going to vote for dying then because I doubt ichor or king will give us anything close to a good deal now.
>>38111656>I didn't get my way so the quest MUST DIE
>>38111683>it should be abundantly clear that it was a horrible choiceIt really wasn't. Baalzamon has no interest to fuck over the future of his vampire Clan.Lirael is safe, her relationship with Shee on the other hand depends on how we handle this.
>>38111656>Baalzamon can probably get in at rank 1Now, don't make such ana ssuption. According to his words, he will only do that once she has completed the path of shadows, so even if *can*, he *won't*.
<Pally> had a very close Y/N vote in thread to sell the daughteru out to an evil god (with enough loopholes in the deal to get out of) to save an ally.<Alany> Which ally was it?<Theheadmaster> That is so delicously evil* CX (~CX@9B4B2EFF.88042246.F9302FFA.IP) has joined #QMC* CX is now known as Kogash<Pally> Kaelyn, the part fae, the brick.martial artist/mage of the group<Alany> Oh her.<Alany> I suppose they voted not to sell her?<Pally> no, they voted to sell Lirael to Baalzamon, by 1 vote<Alany> Gasp.<Pally> well, I admit, I was surprised<Theheadmaster> Wow, so they sould the daughter?<Pally> yes, but as I said, loopholes, lots of loopholes
>>38111729>(with enough loopholes in the deal to get out of)See, all is well.
>>38111715He won't fuck over the clan. He will bend it to his will. He'll do his very best to fucking turn Lirael into a deceitful monster. The whole thing being predicated on Shee's betrayal of her even gives him something to explicitly exploit.Do you not understand that?She lost her mind to a half-assed gifted in the desert. She has no chance against a god.
>>38111726He will probably try, but given his goals there was no way he wouldn't try anyway.
>>38111697>Well guess you're going to vote for dying then because I doubt ichor or king will give us anything close to a good deal now.I didn't say a good deal, I said a better one. Virtually any deal is better than this bullshit.>>38111704>Implying we'd just lie down and dieUse some common sense, we'd use our one week to get that shard out of Kae and prepare some kind of way to deal with Reaper. If we die, then so be it, if we live, we don't have to deal with that shit from Baalzamon.>>38111715>Lirael is safeYeah, just mind-fucked into being someone she's not.>>38111726He said he won't tell her secrets until she masters the path of shadows. Said nothing about fucking with her personality.
I did say that there were loopholes and I'm not embarrassed by anything I said in an open chat.Feel free to post more if you like.
>>38111781It doesn't matter if there are loopholes, because we're not doing it.
I just don't understand why everyone jumped at Baalzy's offer. Ichor has always been straight with us. There's a reason we have her favor at highest rank.>>38111729<Pally> yes, but as I said, loopholes, lots of loopholesOn both sides and Baalzy is better at it.>>38111750>Trying to out loophole the master of loopholesYeah we're fucked.>>38111726>Assuming he's telling the truth to us.Really?>>38111766>I didn't say a good deal, I said a better one. Virtually any deal is better than this bullshit.we twerked off the other three by accepting his offer, the deals they'd be willing to give would likely be worse due to spite.
>>38111781I don't think it was meant to embarrass you, not that you have anything to be embarrassed by
>>38111804>the deals they'd be willing to give would likely be worse due to spite.I don't care if they're worse from a purely logical standpoint, I'd still take them over this bullshit.
>>38111804>we twerked off the other three by accepting his offerKing isn't mad at all. And he's the one we will be asking if Lirael says no.
>>38111827>And he's the one we will be asking if Lirael says no.He's the one I'll be voting to ask period, since I have no intention of asking Lirael if she even wants to learn, because fuck Baalzamon.At the very least, I have no intention of trying to persuade her to learn them.
>>38111804Hey Hey Hey I don't read the archives I voted yes because Balz seems fun. Deal with it.
>>38111881>At the very least, I have no intention of trying to persuade her to learn them.Then we can agree, and I'm confident we can vote tomorrow to make sure Lirael knows she has a free choice.This being something she might actually want, is one of the reasons I agreed to begin with.
>>38111894He is, but he is also a dick probably
>>38111894I motion that this cause the vote to be considered tied and a revote held at the start of the next thread.Because fuckers like you shouldn't count.
>>38111894You really should catch up on a quest before voting to try and deal with the god of deception and betrayal. He's the fucking Ebon Dragon from exalted for pete's sake!
tfw when Baalz won't even screw us over, but his ploy is simple to let us soak in doubt and bad conscience while his champion Garrax do us over
>>38111926I don't think Lirael will agree anyway, so there isn't a point.
>>38111926>being this butthurt over losing a votehuehuehueAutists like you should not be counted either, so that changes nothing.
>>38111894Congratulations, you sold one of the most adorable characters in any quest to the Ebon fucking Dragon, an incompetent asshole betrayer god.
>>38111945Oh Nah I'll probably never post in another one of these. I love it when I see contested votes though.
>>38111962>AutistThanks for the compliment, mate.Seriously, after AA, that word feels more like a compliment than an insult.
>>38111967haha now you're just batting the hornets nest aren't you?But seriously, not a cool move dude
>>38111982It is. it means you're better the these fucking neurotypical scum
>>38111967Ok why?Seriously dick move for the trolling bro.
>>38112004Well false dendrite isn't running I have to bother some one.>>38112026Because rejoicing is needed.
>>38111967>all these lies and misinformationThis pleases Baalzamon.
>>38112067Oh great we've got a rejoicefag infestation. Someone break out the priest slayer bullets!
>>38112067You sound like fun, you read the archive and join the questAnd stop making the stupid choice.. you took the bad choice bad anon
>>38112103If he's actually one of the false dendrite guys then he voted to abandon a friend to her death for shits and giggles.
There's a Feast of Life peripheral that, if you have sufficient Impossibility and it goes into the quest as I'm planning, could let you dick over Baalzamon royally.Because it would let you turn Lirael's Shadow power into Void by making her part of your Clan bloodline, something Baalzamon has *no* power over, which would also imbue Lirael with your power directly making it impossible for Baalzamon to influence her without you knowing and you being able to deny or report him.This is highly theoretical since I haven't even run this powers rough draft by OP yet, but I'll be pushing for it to work that way pretty damn hard.
>>38112124They do that over there? Q_Q
>>38112129I will be very interested in seeing that, sounds fun.
>>38112129Well, you will have to tell us by next thread if we have that option or if we need to go to the King.Since I still intend to let Lirael choose on her own.
>>38112140Yes, thrilled with suffering and angst they shit up any quest they touch. If there is a blatantly bad choice the will pick it and jerk off to the resulting misery it causes.
>Something I actually voted for in the quest wins>Everyone hates it and is going to try to get out of it
>>38112202Not everyone.I like it but have since the start been thinking of ways to get out of it if Lirael doesn't like it.So there is that.
>>38112202Questing is suffering, I know.
>>38112187That's just horrible...>>38112103Okay I take it back
>>38112202You have to admit the advent of rejoicefags openly voting for it makes it suspect as hell.>>38112221See?
>>38112202>Make a horrible choice>Upset that everyone is up in arms about it
>>38112233>implying everyoneNope. I voted for Y legitimately, because I like Baalzamon as much as I like Lirael.A couple of anons are butthurt and being vocal about being butthurt, that doesn't make them everyone. Both sides samefagged, that muhc is obvious. That means each side has abou the same number of people.
>>38112129Wouldn't she lose her awesome ascended history then?
>>38112228Read the last 10 or so threads of FD, what I said was just the tip of the iceberg. They're actively trying to alienate the Mc from everyone and drive her to suicide via evil voice in her head.>>38112278Lirael doesn't have a rep for screwing absolutely anyone and everyone over. Baalzi does. The rejoicefags aren't helping either.
>>38112278Why do you like an Ebon Dragon Proxy who will dick us over if he gets the chance because he finds it funny?He's the dick ass scorpion that kills you and giggles saying, "it's my nature!"
>>38112186You've got a week and I should have the rough draft finished before 4 AM BST.>>38112149It also does some Corruption and Psychic things, still working on Family-based ideas.>>38112280It works slightly differently when imbuing a living vampire with your bloodline instead of turning a mortal. She won't lose Ascension and will still have her Graced powers.>>38112278Not necessarily. Both sides samefagged, but we have no idea on numbers. I think a fair number of people changed their minds shortly after the vote, too.
>>38112315>Baalzi does.He actually doesn't.I introduced the comparison, but Baalzi is not the Ebon Dragon, and he has been absolutely cool with us until now.Will he fuck us over given the chance? Absolutely.Will he take us fucking him over alot better than anyone else? Absolutely.
>>38112315Why the heck would you do that?Also why would anyone QM that?
>>38112346>Will he take us fucking him over alot better than anyone elseYeah he's not like buttblasted over shadow vampires or anything.
>>38112336>I think a fair number of people changed their minds shortly after the vote, too.Well obviously after seeing Kings offer.I still can't believe that.Also, I'm fairly sure a number of people had the same stance I do. That its something that could benefit Lirael, and her having the choice in this is worth getting dicked over by the King.
>>38112219>thinking of ways to get out of it if Lirael doesn't like itAst Kae how toGo to ReaperGet better termsPoint out to him he said they were to give her power so he can't complain to us wanting safeguards against other usesGo to BaalzamonSeek safeguardsPoint out we have what we wantPoint out this would get us a gift if we had pulled it on anyone elsePoint out we can offer 2 more vampire maybes to sweeten the dealProfit?
>>38112355It's hilarious. The QM is seriously upset having to write it as well and he just keeps going. Quest is also pretty dark so actually getting her to off herself is probably achievable.
>>38112336I admit I'm a lot more cool wiht this deal after learning we can still keep baalzamon away. King and Ichor's favours are sweet, but they won't offer them again, it will be something much worse now.
>>38112419>Ichor's favours are sweetNo, they were fucking terrible. They were "murder milions" or "whore yourself out".Kings was amazing though.
>>38112336>It works slightly differently when imbuing a living vampire with your bloodline instead of turning a mortal. She won't lose Ascension and will still have her Graced powers Really turn her into the little vampire death machine, feared by all.Make her even more hunted.
>>38112398I can see the potential benefits, but I am really concerned on Liraels behalf
>>38112450>"whore yourself out".How can you say this is bad? Ok, ok, magical realm, etc, ignore question and move on.The king's, though, it did seem pretty good, but there were tasks to do in order to ascend his worshippers into demons. It could be anyting, from fetching old relics to sacrificing babies, though.
>>38112346He's a slightly nicer version of him, i'll admit, still trying to out rules lawyer him is not going to end well. It's his domain. As for taking betrayal well Remember how the walker still pisses him off?>>38112355>Why the heck would you do that?I dunno I'm not a rejoicefag. I think they jerk off to ruining it for everyone else.>Also why would anyone QM that?Archelon is QMing it, but they've driven to end threads early and to put it on back burner.>>38112416You're a douche rejoicefag.>>38112450The latter option was easy enough though, Rainya, Kae and Ash. done. Not saying it was good but it was pretty easy.
>>38112499>How can you say this is bad?Someone forcing herself into relationships she wouldn't want otherwise is pretty bad, magic realm or not.
>>38112443What part would you like me to explain better?
>>38112419You should be able to.You'll need Feast of Life 6 before you can get this peripheral and it won't have a cheap cost (might ask OP to allow XP debt for it if it gets really down to the wire), so I'd start saving immediately. Forged by Battle XP is still cleared to spend since it can't be used on FoL anyway.>>38112454Plus side, Graced with this bloodline are even more obnoxious to kill than regular Graced would be.It will also help with Lirael's scaling, which is starting to slow down a bit.
>>38112504>The latter option was easy enough thoughWouldn't have been as easy as you think. You can bet Rainya would not be okay with it.Completly aside that something being easy, doesn't mean you should do it.I would have definitly rejected Ichors offer, and there is a part in me actually glad we never got it because I fear it might have actually been accepted.
>>38112559Still as far as offers go hers and Kings were the best. I don't understand why we didn't start with them first anyways.
>>38112545Please reread that queston anon, Yes is not a helpful answer.
>>38112543The important part is the required level of Iposibility.And of course it will make Baalzamon hate us harder than Mirror does.Going back on the deal is something we can sweeten him on by offering to kill a bunch of shdow duded, or mindraping them into worshipping him.But pulling the exact same stunt they did on him.He's not gonna like that.On the other hand it would give us a reason to get Feast of Life, so...
>>38112559I'm expecting Rainya to have an equally explosive reaction to what we've agreed to do for Baal, depending on how we proceed with it.
>>38112504I only know Archelon from the first 50 or so princess guard quest, he seemed pretty cool. I don't picture him for a guy to host insane friend-killing murderhobo kinda stuff
>>38112591>I don't understand why we didn't start with them first anyways.Because their offers were going to be the better ones, which meant having them last allowed us to reject any too terrible offer from the others.If Baalzamon wouldn't have offered us this with massive loopholes, we wouldn't have accepted.Of course, that is also why he left massive loopholes, but I hope everyone understood that.
>>38112600Sorry, I missed the "part" there. Assume I have no idea at all of what you said. Get better terms? From the Reaper, eh? Safeguards? A vampire he hates being as worthy as a Graced Vampire?
>>38112543>Plus side, Graced with this bloodline are even more obnoxious to kill than regular Graced would be.Just imagine if afterwards her mom teaches her magic.>It will also help with Lirael's scaling, which is starting to slow down a bit.Second worst scaling. Shee and Kae have the best. Dev has the worst, unless he has a hidden talent, or we imbue or vampire him.Mundanes run out of stuff to spend xp on.
>>38112668>DevWhy do we have him again?
>>38112634Players went very dark very fast, Arch's mc usually have nasty backgrounds, just players decided to take it in reverse.>>38112637Thing is he's very good with loopholes himself and cheating him will make him hold a grudge like mirror if not worse.
>>38112700The mech is useful and he can be our techie while we alter reality. Besides he's been a bro.
>>38112701I feel all kinds of sorry for that quest and for Archelon. Lets hope the hate we experienced to day won't devolve into anything like that
>>38112701>and cheating him will make him hold a grudge like mirror if not worseI think it really depends on how we cheat him.If we make Lirael a full fledged future Clan Leader that he can't influence, he'd be "well played". If we go the route of not letting her advance, we're gonna be constantly playing against him and he'd be okay with it too.If we go the Void route though, he will hate our guts worse than Mirror does.
>>38112701Or...make him proud and more interested in making Shee his Avatar.
>>38112700Because he's the smart guy in the group.
>>38112701Sort of makes me want to go help his threads out, but it's probably too late really.
>>38112751if the Rejoicefags stay it'll be ike this all the time.>>38112757Which is why I am worried.>>38112760Haha, you'd think, but walker pulled shit like this and now he's Baalzi's #1 target. Besides We aren't nearly backstabby enough to be a good avatar and he already has one anyways.
>>38112810It's still a pitched battle anon, both sides have had victories, help us stem their tide if you are up for the threads.
>>38112811>Which is why I am worried.Really nothing to do now in my eyes.We'll ask Lirael tomorrow and if she says yes, we're going with the Void plan. If she says no, we're going with the King plan.
>>38112811I think it could go either way with the hate/respect>and he already has one anywaysGarrax
>>38112757Way i see it, is that if we do it in a way that creates a loophole, he might get a laugh, some respect and then next time he will tighten the contract.He knows there are loopholes and watching the game played well is half the fun.
>>38112811>but walker pulled shit like thisHe might be slightly less mad, because he's mainly mad at the Walker because he still taps into his Domain.While Lirael wouldn't.
>>38112839Sure. I'll be there. I won't know what's going on but I hate to see trolls destroy a good thing.
>>38112811>>38112760Hey, I'd totally become his avatar in exchange of Lirael.
>>38112863I thought that too, but since the King was the one who spoke for Garrax, I really oubt it now.Of course the King is a stickler for rules, so he might feel he "has to".
>>38112515She seemed to want Kae on at least some level. Yeah, she probably wouldn't go for it without Ichor giving a push, but it is there. Random 3rd person I can see it being a problem with, though.
>>38112850We'll see.>>38112863Garax is King's follower though, just a rule lawyer in a court.>>38112877If she starts walking down the path I don't see her stopping, and one slip could earn eternal enmity.>>38112901The choices aren't hard. Just never ever vote REMOVE, ever. That hands the mc mobile to the evil voice.>>38112904>Implying he'd even take us right now.>>38112931Ash, we'd feel like shit but he'd go for it in heartbeat.
>>38112931>She seemed to want Kae on at least some level.I don't see where you get that idea from. She was clearly not enthusiastic about how Kae got touchy with Shee.
>>38112700Because he's a friend.and you guys love betraying friends so much.
>>38112957>If she starts walking down the path I don't see her stopping, and one slip could earn eternal enmity.No, I mean if we go with the Void plan. Then he'd be slightly less mad because its not his Domain.
>>38112811>if the Rejoicefags stay it'll be like this all the time.It does seem like the few people that stay and talk after the quest is over are more invested (obviously) are less malevolent (and frankly less annoying).I am all for respecting the final vote, but its sad if its rejoicefags, like you describe it, that push the decision.
>>38112601Level of Impossibility isn't set in stone, but likely either 6 or 8 for the Void part of your bloodline.Baalzamon probably won't hate you if Lirael doesn't learn his secrets before you turn Shadow to Void.
>>38112987Anon, he's a god they have temper tantrums when they don't get their way at the best of times. Hell Ichor is pissed at us now because we didn't even talk to her.>>38112991They did today, I'm sad I got off of work late and missed the vote.
