Rolled 1 (1d5)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 heading back at the Waystation after your meeting with Breaker. Meeting with one of the Reunited who doesn’t want to kill you or use you in some crazed plot was a welcome change of pace.Through your mental contact with Rainya you learn that whilst you were out meeting with Breaker she managed to manifest another body, meaning you’ll have to deal with 5 Rainyas when you get home...A quick check of your comm shows you have a message from Yonsul saying she has information on the lady with the spider legs.You’ve got a lot to do, but what do you do next?Shee's To Do List1. Go after Kulrathe and/or his officers (plan?)2. Talk to Garrax (reunited)3. Seek the favour of one of the Five (which?)4. Contact the Rebellion (about what?) 5. Research the Fae Court/Palace, is there a way in?6. Make some more stuff for your Realm7. Take Research Facility back (how?)9. Talk to Yonsul 10. Go after Jade CrimsonthorneOr>Other (what?)[Meta]XP use for Rainya and Kaelyn used from last thread.There is extra XP pending from work done by AA, I’m still reading through it currently[End Meta]With 5 bodies Rainya reduces a seers chances of predicting your movements to 20%Don't mind me, just rolling a d5
>>38264080>9. Talk to Yonsul
>>38264080>9. Talk to Yonsul>Mental Contact with Rainya, and have her talk to YonsulObfuscation HO!
>>38264097Or we could just bring a Rainya with.We should do that
Does mental contact with Rainya mess with spider-bitch's predictions? I thought she needed to be standing near us. Can't see it in ally powers section.9. Talk to Yonsul. Mirror bitch is main threat right now. Kulrathe's threat is dispersed amongst all the Reunited.
>>38264139>Does mental contact with Rainya mess with spider-bitch's predictions?Yes
>>38264104It would actually be a even better protection, since she is more likely to scry on Shee then on Rainya or Yonsul.Its just making sure, 1/5 are decent but not exactly perfect odds.>>38264139Since we could talk to any Rainya, and the way it works, I'd think so.
>>38264153Should we strive to have a Rainya each with each of our allies?
>>38264172Probably better to keep all our allies close as possible, since Rainya does get malus on all rolls from being divided.
>>38264172Not a bad idea
>>38264197As long as they have a Rainya
>>38264224There could be just one Rainya for the entire group and four with us, and It'd be the same thing.And significantly better in case fighting actually happens.
>>38264245Doesn't it give her a 4 in 5 chance to scry us correctly. I think I need to read last thread again...
>>38264259The whole thing is rather vague, and the way it works mechanically doesn't really add up with the way its explained.For example, we get the full protection if we have 5 Rainyas around while talking to Yonsul, even though all Rainyas would be around to hear the same thing.Just roll with it, I guess.
>>38264278I will, if cthulhu mom says it works like so, so be it
>>38264278Its just that the power doesn't actually duplicate the possibilities through each Rainya.It just multiplies it by the number of Rainyas in existence, it doesn't really matter much what they do.Otherwise the enemy could just scry Shee herself, and being near Rainya would make no difference if it would just switch between Rainyas 'actual' activities.
>>38264278>>38264303Thats the right attitude, just trust in Sea Mom.
You send a text to Yonsul saying you want to meet her and you arrive at the Waystation just moments after she has arrived. One of the wait staff tells you which room she is in, and that she has just ordered lunch. You head up to meet her.“Well I found her” says Yonsul without preamble, as you sit opposite her “Or I think I did anyway. That sort of cybernetic enhancement is rare and once you factor in her gender and appearance it narrows the field a lot. There is in fact only one woman matching the description you gave in Hive 39. Jane Vindell, age 29, lives on Level 38” Yonsul gives you her address “Her late husband was an investment banker of some kind, about 30 years older than her, she was his second wife. He died about a year ago in an accident, circumstances were suspicious enough that she was investigated, but there wasn’t enough evidence to say that she killed him, even though he *was* having an affair so she was never charged. She had the implants put in shortly before he died.” Yonsul hands you some printouts with Ms Vindells contact details, as well as a list of known associates, favourite places and shops she frequents, and her doctors details. The file includes a photo which matches the appearance of the woman you saw.“Thanks Yonsul” you say “you’ve been a great help, really, thank you.”“I’m glad to help” she says, shaking her head sadly “sorry I couldn’t do more.”Inside you the ball of rage and grief grown from Ashs threatens to overwhelm you, you push it back down “you’ve done plenty” you say “this is more than enough, really.”
Hell Dad is still my favourite of the Five.Baalzamon is second
“Its strange though” says Yonsul “her getting a modification that’s usually only done on the sort of people who work on maintaining and repairing the Hive exterior – I mean the whole point of those legs is to be able to climb anywhere as well as having extra *hands*, why would the wife of a rich banker get that? And where? Her regular doctors notes don’t list the clinic she got the mod at.”You shrug “maybe I’ll find out”“Yeah” says Yonsul, as her starter arrives she starts eating “you wanted to know anything else?”Your response?>No (ends conversation)>Yes (info on what?)>Other (what?)
>>38264338>No (ends conversation)>Unless she has anything new on Garrax
>>38264338Other, Offer her one of those blood fruits, advise her what it is first however.
>>38264346Supporting this. She's already got feelers out on Kulrathe, not much else we could have her doing.
>>38264338>Yes (info on what?)>Anything she knows about Jade Crimsonthorn, she shouldn't look anything up, but if she personally knows something, favourite Clubs or similar, that would be helpful
>>38264365We should not get her hooked on blood... stupid idea
>>38264365Whry?Dhampir don't drink blood.
>>38264338>>Yes >anything more on Garrax, Kulrathe or Jade?
>>38264338>Anything she knows about Jade Crimsonthorn, she shouldn't look anything up, but if she personally knows something, favourite Clubs or similar, that would be helpful
>>38264365Fairly sure the fruits don't do anyting for her. They are blood fruits, not vitae fruits.As dhampir she can't make blood into vitae, they need vampire blood.
The poison custom ammo don't actually come with the poison, that comes separately, so I was thinking that we could get some poison rounds and then grow some kind of really nasty poison plant and use that for the round.
>>38264472That could work. Or we could mix several poisons together to make it really nasty.
“Anything more on Kulrathe, Garrax or Jade?” you ask hopefully.Yonsul responds “Garrax no, as far as I can tell, he’s just tending to his business, legal and otherwise. His comm bill spiked massively a few days ago though. It seems he’s been sending a lot of messages offworld somewhere but without a warrant I can’t read what he sent.” Who could Garrax be talking to off-world that might be a danger to you?“Kulrathe” Yonsul shakes her head in frustration “I have to be careful there, but it seems like he’s gearing up for something, he’s requisitioning a lot of long-distance vehicles, especially ones hardened for deep-desert use and enough desert gear for a hundred or more people, his own assault crews plus support staff. There was a report from an orbital monitoring station about an unidentified craft or crafts, landing about four hundred miles away. If he’s after that I don’t know why, it should really be the military’s thing.”“And Jade?” you ask. Yonsul shrugs “What can I tell you about her?” You nod.“Rich girl” says Yonsul “a long list of arrests for the usual stuff, drinking, public order offenses, stuff like that, but unlike many rich vamp kids Jade has quite a few arrests for illegal mental influence – most kids stop doing it, or stop getting caught after the first time and their folks yell at them. Hell, Jade almost did prison time after making a guy walk in front of a car and nearly die, but the Crimsonthornes offered him enough money to forget his injuries. Seems she likes messing with peoples heads. As for her friends, who she hangs around with? I can’t say, her last arrest was over a year ago so anything in the file could be out of date by now.”“Well thanks anyway” you say “that’s plenty for now.”“Alright” says Yonsul. You stay and chat with her as she eats her lunch and bitches about her job. After finishing her lunch, Yonsul says goodbye and is on her way.
In the back of your mind Rainya asks –So, are we going after her now?--Maybe- you say –But is she’s a mage with precognition or whatever, then her home will likely be full of traps.-What are you doing?>List of tasks as abovePlus option of>Find info on downed spacecraft
>>38264586>Ask Tenley after blackmarket cybernetics surgeonsIf she has a complex machine as her only mode of movement, she needs someone to install and maintain it, and clearly she isn't doing that herself
>>38264586>Find info on downed spacecraftThe demon guy already told us didn't he?We have his card, lets hit him up on the comm or in person.
>>38264610>lets hit him up on the commIt was explicitly not a comm number.We'd have to visit Hell again.
>>38264586>Ask Tenley after blackmarket cybernetics surgeons
>>38264628We can't visit Hell without disturbing Hell Dad yet, since our only route there is trying to contact him. Even that might've just been because he was too busy in Hell to not have a part of himself in Hell for a second.I don't think disturbing him to find out more about a scrub demon is a good idea, and we can find shit out through non-scrub sources.
>>38264648The question is, do we wait for Tenley to get the info we need, and go after the Syrnians in the meantime, or do we try to scout out our enemies home?It sounds like Garrax has been in contact with the Syrnians, so taking care of them or at least getting info about their situation, might be prudent.
>>38264648Do we have to disturb Hell dad?Pally, how freely can we enter hell?Do we need interdimensional teleport to do so?
Talking to Tenley it is, writing
>>38264688>Pally, how freely can we enter hell?Entering Hell is something we could do with high-level Form of the King of Hell, so its definitly not easy.
>>38264675If Kulrathe is out of his place, then maybe we should try to plan an ambush
>>38264688>Do we have to disturb Hell dad?Currently? yes>Pally, how freely can we enter hell?Form of the King of Hell is one way to do it or...>Do we need interdimensional teleport to do so?Is another way to do so.Blind teleports into Hell are...reckless...though.
>>38264675Spider-bitch has the absolute highest priority due to her bullshit precognition.
>>38264693He's not yet, and when he goes, it will be with a veritable army.And if we slaughter all those cops, then Reaper will be happy to send the army after that dangerous terrorist.
>>38264707I meant wait at his home, and wait till he came back
>>38264702While true, running blindly into her base would be pretty stupid.So caution can require us to wait for a bit longer, until we have more information.
Anyone want to explain to Tenley that we have some custom-made fruit that produces deliciously sweetened blood?
>>38264732Enough with those stupid blood fruits already. Stop trying to tell everyone about them.
Jane Vindell can’t be maintaining her implabts herself, and even if sge is you think, she must have had someone put them in. If its not listed in her doctors notes, then perhaps she had it done illegally?You head down the kitchen to see Tenley massacring some vegetables, dicing them rapidly into tiny pieces, he’s good with his knifes.“I’d like to ask you about something” you say “if I’m not distracting you too much?”He grunts and looks around for Gambon, who is across the other side of the kitchen berating some of the other chefs.With a sigh Tenley says “what?”“I need to know about clinics that implant cybernetics” you say “specifically, those that do so outside the law.”Tenley sniggers “fancy an upgrade do you?” he gestures towards your modest chest with his knife, why that little-“No” you say after taking a moment to calm yourself “I need to know which ones can do a complete rebuild of the lower body into spiderlegs.”“Ah high-rise mod” says Tenley “not much use for that and most of the workers get the mod paid for by their employers, yeah there’s a few, why?”“I need to know which one did the mod for a particular person, and find out what they know anbout this person” you say “how would I find that out?”Tenley stops chopping vegetables and gives you a frank look “I can find out” he says “but it’ll cost money to bribe the right people, say maybe, 50k estimate, and it’ll take a few days too.”Give Tenley 50,000 credits to find which the chop-shop that gave Jane Vindell her legs, and what they know about her?>Y/NTell Tenley about the Blood Fruits?>Y/N>Say something else (what?)Might as well put it to a vote...
>>38264801>N>NFew days is too long. We don't have that time.
>>38264801>Y>NWe should ask them if they need any other expensive plants tho.Am I the only one you thinks the mirror gal might have gotten legs as a reunited power?
>>38264801YMention it as a hypothetical, butYIf he asks, say we did botany before we did this.
>>38264801>N>Y>>38264837Yes, because that's stupid and not even part of Mirror's domains.
>>38264801>N>N>Anything that could speed up the process? If you give me a few names, I can take care of the rest myself
It would be hilarious I admit if he ends up asking if we can make something that falls in better taste with vampires.
>>38264844>Yes, because that's stupid and not even part of Mirror's domains.Depends, maybe she did it with Adaptive Mutation, the main problem is that she did it a year ago, and the contest only started recently.
>>38264844>Yes, because that's stupid and not even part of Mirror's domains.It would evidently be from before she was mirrors avatar (if she even is that now), and there is nothing preventing us from branching out from one god. Why should she be limited to mirror?
>>38264801>N, but thanks, but I don't have days>N
Appears to be a double no, writing.
>>38264860Adaptive Mutation is limited to biologically possible changes, IIRC.>>38264865Because multi-god Reunited like us are theorized to be uncommon, so it's somewhat likely she was a devotee of the Mirror before Avatarhood, though possible she wasn't.More relevant, what god would she even have gotten it from? Artifice could only give us cybernetic implants because of our Impossibility domain.
>>38264885Its like you people don't even want to find her...
>>38264889>Adaptive Mutation is limited to biologically possible changes, IIRC.Multiple legs are biologically impossble how?>>38264891Yes, we would like to find her soon, not in a few days.
>>38264891More like we don't want to fuck around for three days for a lead of debatable value at best when we already know where she lives.>>38264896When they're explicitly mechanical implants, yeah, I'd say so.
“I’ll keep that in mind” you say, after all that’s a lot of money, and you hope to confront her faster than that. You consider telling Tenley about your blood fruits but decide against it. Whilst you do get vampires dining here, you wonder if there’s enough of a market for them to make it worthwhile. You thank Tenley for his time and leave the kitchens and wonder what you’ll be doing next. It’s currently early afternoon.>Next task (what?)
>>38264896And if that fails? bacause we don't really have a plan do we.We not have this as a backup. I don't even..
>>38264901>When they're explicitly mechanical implants, yeah, I'd say so.You mean when they look like mechanical implants.Did it occur to you that when someone suddenly gets multiple legs, thats a bit suspicious and might be something they will want to hide, using illusions?You know, because she can do that.>>38264904>Go to where the MirrorA lives, and scout out the place
>>38264904>Go after Jade Crimsonthorne
>>38264904>Go to where the MirrorA lives, and scout out the placeOr>Find info on downed spacecraft
>>38264904>Go after Jade CrimsonthroneShe'd be a good source of information on Mirror Bitch, and isn't protected by Mirror Bitch's precog traps
>>38264912Apparently I am to perplexed to write.It should have been>Why not have this as a backup. I don't even..I mean we have not exactly been effective time wise or that proactive with our other tasks
>>38264934>>38264920How? Do you have any plan as to how we get into the Crimsonthorn mansion?
Guys, I just had a thought. What if Baalzamon is actually a hardcore Lawful Light guy, but has been cursed to always say the opposite of what he wants to say, and after so long he's now a shadow dragon because he said yes to things he wanted to say no to, and no to things he wanted to say yes to?
>>38264904>Go to where the MirrorA lives, and scout out the place
>>38264944Attack her when she's not in the Crimsonthorne mansion.
>>38264944Is she a NEET?
>>38264934>She'd be a good source of information on Mirror BitchNo she wouldn't, the Mirrors servant clearly had nothing but contempt for her, she wouldn't tell her shit.>>38264954How do you find her? When she isn't in there?
>>38264912Because Tenley has no protection against precognition and she probably had her surgeon mind-slaved.>>38264919Then how would it have affected us when we looked at her in future vision? I don't think that's how illusions work. It might be the inverse - she has mech legs but makes them look organic with illusions because organic spider legs are creepier. Intimidation factor.>>38264904>Go to where the MirrorA lives, and scout out the place
>>38264904>Find info on downed spacecraft
>>38264986>Then how would it have affected us when we looked at her in future vision? I don't think that's how illusions work.I see no reason why it wouldn't work like that.
>>38264986Because Tenley has no protection against precognition and she probably had her surgeon mind-slaved.>Lets take no risks ever, no matter how minute or improbable
>>38264960They'd made an arrangement that if she helped take us out she'd be turned into a Reunited. That means they must have negotiated before. We don't know how close they are to each other but she is a good lead which we can follow up on. She's also one of the few people we know who've seen Mirror in the flesh. And she's on our to kill list.Pretend to be someone else with shapeshifting abilities. Don't enter, ask a servant. We can pretend to be an unlimited number of people in order to find out where she might be.
>>38265013Yes, because clearly servants to paranoid vampires will gladly hand out information about the mindrape happy scion of the family to complete strangers. And will not inform anyone that we asked.Brilliant plan 10/10.
>>38264912>Tenley has no precogtection>Surgeon is mind-raped, probably live-in>Cost a bunch of cash>Would've taken way too long for it to be viable (<24 hours or bust)>If the surgeon wasn't enslaved they wouldn't know much>She might just have a robot for it, or maintain them with magic>Probably killed her original surgeon post-installation>I don't even know what we'd get out of it from him, no way is she stupid enough to have a guy that knows shit about her walking around when there's a psychic Reunited out for her blood, so anything decent he knew has probably been torn from his head>>38265007>Let's take moderate-high risks for a worthless lead that won't pay off for far too long if it could even pay off to begin with because it was *my* idea.
>>38265007Her spying on our staff is not improbable.Especially since we have used them for taks before.
>>38265026Again, shapeshifting abilities. Observing the place for a little while isn't difficult. Pick out targets to pretend to be. Read the target's mind beforehand to get context.
ok, going to scout Jane Vindels place it is.Who?>Just you and Rainya>With (who?)And plan?>Walk up and knock on the door>Just watch the place>Other (what?)Go in disguise?>Y/NI'm assuming at least 1 Rainya goes with you and 1 stays at the Waystation, unless write-ins specify otherwise.
>>38265038No it was actually my idea to ask Tenley, but I had hoped he would have a limited number of names we could hit up.Waiting days for that bit of information isn't worth it.
>>38264904>Go to where the MirrorA lives, and scout out the placeMake sure to bring a Rainya.
>>38265051>Us, Rainya and Kae>Just watch the place, look for neighbors whose minds we can search>Y
>>38265051>>Just you and Rainya>Just watch the place>Y
>>38265043We can't read minds.
>>38265038>Let's take moderate-high risks for a worthless lead that won't pay off for far too long if it could even pay off to begin with because it was *my* idea.I wasn't my idea, and what other formulated plan do we have?Besides if you are so sure we will be done with her in a matter of a few day, then the risk is even less
>>38265043>Observing the place for a little while isn't difficult.Clearly they don't have precautions against spies.That sounds like something rich and powerful vampires do, be unprepared for shapeshifters, when illusion using fae are their Nr.1 threat.
>>38265051>Us, Rainya and Kae>Just watch the place>Y
>>38265072Lirael can. Gestalt.
>>38265051>With Kae and RainyaNeed Kae for chaos magic>Just watch the place
>>38265076Only on their own grounds. Preventing observation of people entering and exiting the premises is a lot more difficult.
>>38265051>you, Kae and Rainya (2 of her, 3 at home)Can we gestalt with Lirael at home or in the realm?>Just watch the place
>>38265099So, you want us to stand around there for a few days until we chance on someone who happens to have the clout that him asking after Jade isn't suspicious?Especially since the majority would be servants, who either know, or have no business knowing where she is?
>>38265051>>38265093adding>Eat a few blood fruits to fill our vitae poolMight need that
>>38265075>What other formulated plan do we have?>Poorly thought out low-tier lead>Formulated planWe don't have any in the first place, but scouting is better than hoping we don't get screwed over by, say, spider-bitch mind-raping our cook and turning him into an anti-magic suicide bomb. You know, like she's been shown to do before.>Besides if you are so sure we will be done with her in a matter of a few day, then the risk is even lessI'm not sure, but if we aren't, the risk is present and near-pointless due to the fact that the surgeon probably doesn't have anything worthwhile for reasons I mentioned, and if we do, then the information is meaningless since we didn't need it.Even if she hasn't mind-wiped him, she would when she saw the future that Tenley would get info on her from her surgeon, because precog.
>>38265113Jesus Christ. You're acting like this is some immense task to work out the bare-bones schedule of a vampire socialite with an arsenal of demi-god powers. And this is neither here nor there now, the vote is over.
>>38265108>Can we gestalt with Lirael at home or in the realm?Yes, Gestalts can only be initiated whilst in mental contact but can be maintained across planar boundaries.Adding, 5 minute vote, Gestalt with Lirael?>Y/N
>>38265137You think she has mind-raped everyone she has been in contact with in her past? really?
>>38265159This particular person who could have had vital information about her when there's a highly dangerous PSYCHIC Reunited with a confirmed Avatar kill? Yeah, yeah I do.
>>38265159Yeah considering we offed the last avatar so easily, she better be paranoid.>>38265158>Y
>>38265158>YDisguise us as guys, no one will suspect
>>38265171Your arguments are not all bad, but I really think you're blowing the risks out of proportion and neglect the insight we might gain, it might not be her only implant for example, she might have other shady underworld dealings. We will never know.
>>38265205If we had cybernetic implants, I sure as hell would mindwipe the surgeon.I see no reason why she wouldn't.
>>38265205She has no family in the area, she knows we're looking for her. If she hasn't mindraped or wiped him then she's an idiot. Relying on your opponent's stupidity only highlights your own.

If we're going to constantly be rolling for whether or not MirrorA picks the right future, maybe we should up Rainya's duplicates potential asap
>>38265253Optimally MirrorA is dead before the end of this thread.
>>38265237Heh, I hope it's 5 that means Mirror Bitch divines the truth.Fortunately she should be in perpetual uncertainty, even if she chooses the right vision, she'd still have lingering doubts.
>>38265258I very much doubt things will go optimally here. If she isn't dead, I'm sure as hell voting for plurality.
>>38265258I still want more Rainyas.
>>38265269>I'm sure as hell voting for pluralityI'd be voting against that, because it would be a terrible use of our XP.We need to actually have those Rainyas manifested for the bonus, and manifesting with Plurality 1 basically cripples Raynia with mali onever d20 roll.
What if, for Pluralityall of the d20s were added together per check, instead of each one having to do it individually if they're all doing the same action. (such as firing the bow at the same target)
>>38265327Then it'd be broken, and wouldn't make much sense anyway.
You link minds with Lirael and head out with Rainya and Kaelyn, after Kae covers you all in an illusionary disguise. Rainya leaves one of her duplicates back at the restaurant. You approach the address Sergeant Yonsul gave you for Jane Vindel. It’s high up in the Hive in a very clean-looking neighbourhood. A lot of the houses are large and ornate, some of them looking very old. Many of the driveways each have one or more expensive cars even in mid-afternoon, this is the sort of place where loiterers are noticed quickly and any crime means the police will arrive in minutes. How the other half live eh?An old lady, walking a tiny dog that yaps incessantly, gives the three of you a dirty look and mutters something about “gangs moving in” and hurries past you. The Vindel residence is no different, surrounded by a high wall and sturdy-looking gates. A box on the side of the house boasts the effectiveness of its alarm system and tinted windows make it difficult to see what’s going on inside the place, clearly the resident values her privacy.Still, you’re in luck the house opposite hers is empty right now, a quick scan of the place reveals no minds present and no chaos magic beyond the a simple privacy ward. Its garden is protected by thick undergrowth and high hedges – a perfect place to conceal the three of you whilst you watch the Vindel house.“That’s a lot of magic” says Kaelyn conversationally as the three of you lurk in the bushes.“Yeah” you agree, whilst trying to get a feel for the place with your own senses even as you experience Lirael playing hologames back at the Waystation.You can sense a lot of magic on the Vindel house, lots of different auras, too many to easily puzzle through.
>>38265284There's currently a 20% chance every couple posts that MirrorA figures out what we're doing and starts counter-planning. A five-fold increase in blocking MirrorA's abilities is well worth losing out on her perception rolls while she follows us around.
Kaelyn breaks some of them down for you “detection spell, alarm, another alarm, anti-scrying spell, explosive trap, teleport trap, mind-wipe trap, alarm, some sort of summoning trap...” She lists too many for you to count, either way the message is clear. That building is well protected.“I can see someone moving inside” says Rainya “but not any details.”“Same” says Kaelyn, both of them peering at a figure that occasionally walks past a window.You can see far clearer however, there’s only one person in the house and it looks like Jane Vindel, spider legs and all. She’s just doing...normal stuff. As you watch she finishes a sandwich and washes the plate in the sink, sits reading from a datapad and performs exercises as shown by a holo. Just normal everyday boring stay at home stuff that a woman living on her dead husbands wealth might do. Could this be an illusion? Or an act to draw attackers in?>Actions (what?)
If we got Plurality 4, and there were 250 different Rainyas running around...could we drive MirrorA insane with all the possibilities she were seeing at once.
>>38265346Blast the fuck outta the house. Go full rampage.
>>38265346>Leave for now, we can use Clairsentience to watch over the street
Okay...Say we have one Rainya with us and 4 Rainyas at home. The four at home combines into one.This leaves 2 Rainyas, one at each place.Can the 1 We have with us then split into 4, effectively moving 3 Rainyas from one place to another?

You continue to watch as you reach out and probe the minds of the residents of nearby houses. They’re full of concerns about themselves: do their husbands or wives still love them, are they getting fat, will that bitch next door ever stop making eyes at their husband, small worries from your point of view.You start looking specifically for information about Jane Vindel, it’s not much: Quiet, polite, keeps to herself a lot, seems she never got over her husbands death all that time ago. Keeps odd hours sometimes. I could have sworn I saw her in her kitchen one day and then not two minutes later she’s walking down the street headed home, huh, I must be imagining it, why does he have those legs, so strange, still, she is grieving. She is up late a lot, trouble sleeping? I know a great therapist maybe I should recommend him to her? As you do this Kaelyn and Rainya keep an eye upon the house. Jane Vindel goes about her normal activities.>Actions (what?)
>>38265543>Leave for now, we can use Clairsentience to watch over the streetOkay, so this is a illusion.
>>38265543>Leave for now, we can use Clairsentience to watch over the streetWe too can play this game
>>38265543>I could have sworn I saw her in her kitchen one day and then not two minutes later she’s walking down the street headed homeGuess that more or less confirms that the thing in the house is probably an illusion.
>>38265591Considering its Mirror, it might a Duplicate too.
>>38265598If it's a duplicate, she's going to be extremely hard to kill.
>>38265543Looks like we will have to take drastic measures and Subtle Apport one of the mercenaries we saw to us.
>>38265543Have we seen any of the mercs faces Pally?
We really should have kae put up some wards of our own
You’ve seen enough, whatever is in there isn’t Jane Vindel, it’s an illusion or a duplicate or whatever, just there to fool the neighbours. The hard knot of emotion in your chest that you didn’t want to acknowledge eases a bit, as much as you want to burst in there, guns blazing, it would accomplish nothing, and just give Lord Reaper the excuse he needs to hunt you down.“I’ve seen enough” you say to Kaelyn and Rainya “I can watch over this place at a distance now, let’s go.”“Aren’t we going to capture her?” asks RainyaYou shake your head “no point” you say “it’s an illusion or a double or something else, it’s not really her, when I kill her it has to count, it has to be real, this...this is nothing. I’ll watch this place just in case she visits to maintain the spells here but for now, lets go home.”You slump a little in defeat, you were hoping for a quick victory over Ashs murderer, but it was not to be. You feel Liraels concern for you through your joined minds. Rainya puts an arm around your waist and you all head back to the Waystation, feeling only disappointment.What do you do next?>Tasks as above or write-in>>38265693Yes
>>38265719>Have kae put up some wards of our ownAsk Kae if she knows which nightclubs Jade goes to
>>38265719>Find info on downed spacecraftTonight, after we the customers left, we can try Apporting one of the mercs into the basement of the restaurant, going into the desert will probably make the range too long
>>38265719Send a message to the Kenleys. Give them the name and address, say that this is the person who arranged for Ash's death. Warn them that they are a powerful Champion, and if they're going to act use appropriate force.
>>38265719>Find info on downed spacecraft>>38265749And they are going to believe this, why?>>38265736Cool, have you prepared any? You think we won't need Kae for a few days, since making wards takes hours?
>>38265749>KenleysKellens, how did I get Kenleys.
>>38265759She can't take a break once in a while?
>>38265719>Go to Tenley again, someone hired a large number of mercenaries a few days ago and brought them to a warehouse, that can't have gone noticed by the underworld
>>38265759>Cool, have you prepared any?He can't, because Kae can't make those kinds of wards yet.
ok, writing talking to Tenley
>>38265759Does it matter if they do?
Back at the Waystation you head down to speak to Tenley, releasing the gestalt you have with Lirael. You find Tenley threatening one of the chefs in the kitchen for cooking something the wrong way, after Tenley has finished haranguing the poor man he sniffs at your presence and beckons you to follow him into the pantry “changed your mind huh?” he asks.“Not about that no” you say, adding “a few days ago there was a lot of mercenaries and gangs in an ambush low-hive, what can you tell me about it?”Tenley shrugs “The vamps” he says “the oubliette or whatever they are called, they bring a lot of off-world muscle with them weeks ago as *security*, the gangs they hire a few days ago, they attack someone, a lot of people die, the vamps and their soldiers leave, the gangs...go back to being gangs.” Hmm, seems like the shadow vampires were doing most of the underworld stuff, still, it might be a connection to the follower of the Mirror, weak as it sounds.“Which gangs?” you ask Tenley, he gives you a few names, places they hang out at and then goes back into the kitchen.What now?>Actions as above Plus new>Go talk to gangs
>>38265918>Go talk to gangs
>>38265918>Go talk to gangsI love how Tenley has warmed up to us.
>>38265945I like Tenley. I hope we can get him demonhood one day.
>>38265918>Go talk to gangsIn case we don't get to do specifics until then>Have Kae disguise herself and Rainyas as big tough looking guysI dont want to have to kill anyone because they didn't take us serious

>>38265918Leak Jane's address to Kulrathe. Best case they kill eachother. Worst case Kulrathe gets an avatar kill, but at least then Jane's dead. Ok case is the Kulrathe charges into the house and gets killed by the traps.
>>38265989>Rainyas and Kae>Tough guysLirael needs to stay out of gestalt, so she can check on the street the MirrorA lives from time to time.>>38265991>Worst case Kulrathe gets an avatar killNo, worst case they recognise a common enemy and team up.
>>38265989>Rainyas and Kae>Tough guys

>>38265989Take Rainya and...dunno who else. Also, Pally, can we put 'Find ways to improve the Restaurant' on our to-do list?
>>38266091We have to wait until Pally has written that up.
Rolled 2 (1d5)Sorry yes, watch the area around the house is what I meant, and yes, one Rainya is staying behind as usual.>>38266091Sure
>>38266097Why? We've got 300k+ in the bank. If we talk to our secretary, she could probably give us a list of ways we can invest in the business, with capital like that.
>>38266119Because Pally hasn't written the possible purchases for improving the restaurant yet.
>>38266144We haven't asked? Also, I think it'd be straightforwards. Musical entertainment, improve the kitchen, hire more folks, advertise, and possible options using our botany.
>>38266158>We haven't asked?Yes we have asked Pally several times.His answer had always been, he hasn't decided yet.
>>38266176Ah. Well, shit then. Maybe I can work with AA or Pally on getting some business maths down.
You grab Kaelyn and Rainya again, Kaelyn covers you all in illusions of tough-looking street thugs, the kind of guys people do *not* want to mess with. Though you don’t have much to fear from an ordinary gang, three teenage girls don’t present an intimidating front. Constantly fighting off would-be assailants will get tiring after a while.You swagger out of the Waystation and start asking around, trying to find out anything you can about the whole ambush.You spend the rest of the day looking up the different gangs Tenley told you about. Most don’t know anything about any *Spider-legged bitch*, or are too difficult to find. One gang however, the Iron Hawks, is all too eager to see you, finding their hideout and talking to their leader isn’t the problem, it’s how things go after that... The leader of the Iron Hawks, a bulky tough named Rengel is willing to trade information about *that bitch* in exchange for...“You tell me about the red-haired bitch that took out my boys that day, and I’ll tell you everything I know about that freaky spider-bitch” says Rengel.You’re in a rundown building in Rengels *place of business* around you are a half-dozen guys all carrying guns, and their logo of an iron hawk does look familiar, yes, just like the ones you and Rainya killed.You Rainya and Kaelyn are there looking like very tough guys.Your response?>I don’t know any red-haired bitch>Oh yeah, she lives at uh...(make something up)>This guy knows something? Attack + interrogate!>Other (what?)I'll see if I can write up some restaurant stuff before next thread.As always, if you want to get involved, hit me up on twitter
>>38266210>Oh yeah, she lives at uh...(make something up)Give him the street where the spider bitch lives
>>38266210>This guy knows something? Attack + interrogate!This sounds like a Jaggie option to me.
>>38266210"She's a Duster, but after her place got shot up in a police raid, she went into the hive. I have no clue where, but there's only so many places a duster can hide out in here."
>>38266210>Oh yeah, she lives at uh...(make something up)>Give him the street where the spider bitch lives>>38266263Are you stupid or something? if it were, it would say so, like it always does.
>>38266241>"She's a Duster, but after her place got shot up in a police raid, she went into the hive. I have no clue where, but there's only so many places a duster can hide out in here."> I might be able to find out more.>>38266263Next post, lets see how far we can take them without attacking.>>38266241Thats pretty stupid, why would we give that adresse?Also we don't want to send them to our enemies, they might just team up.
>>38266281>always doesIt doesn't always. Sometimes we have to ask for clarification.
>>38266263good point, yes, that would please Jagganatha
>>38266210>Oh yeah, she lives at uh...(make something up)>Give him the street where the spider bitch lives
>>38266281>>38266300You are aware that if he has legitimate information he might already know the street, correct?
>>38266210Tweet sent. You prefer Skype or email?
>>38266303Thats a problem how?>>38266290No, it always does unless Pally has forgotten it, which has rarely happened. Clarification is for write-ins.>>38266288>Also we don't want to send them to our enemies, they might just team up.They already worked together with her.
>>38266210>Oh yeah, she lives at uh...(make something up)I'm still worried about the idea of anyone that isn't AA getting that involved...
>>38266327So they might already know the adresse as >>38266303 said and instantly call our bluff
>>38266327>No, it always does unless Pally has forgotten it, which has rarely happened.Thank you for your faith in me, however in this case I did forget.
>>38266344In which case we beat them up and have lost nothing.
Please roll 1d20+12 to lietelling him Jane Vindells address it is

>>38266356We have nothing to win by telling that adresse, its even worse then just a random one
>>38266401Yes we do, if they go after that place, that distract our enemy and weakens her defenses.We don't want to give a random adress, because we don't want them to smash into the houses of random people.
>>38266417We will see how it played out, I hope you are right.
“Yeah I know her” you say “or rather, I heard of her, she lives up hive at uh...” you give him the street Jane Vindel lives on, though not her exact address. Rengel stares at you for several long seconds and then shakes his head “yeah, figured she must be some rich up-hiver. Ok, the bitch with the spider-legs is weird man, I don’t even know, ok, lemme tell you about how we got hired.” He relays his tale.“Well I always insist on meeting whoever hires us just in case they crazy right? Well I meet with the freaky vamp, off-worlder ya know, and there’s the spider bitch wit him, so I start asking questions about who we fighting, what they armed with shit like that. His answers don’ make a lotta sense but I need ta know, anyways, the bitch starts giving him attitude ya know? Like why we gotta hire all dese trash? bitch is dumb anyway, I ignore her cuz hey, ain’t my bitch, an’ he paying money, so I nod an’ I smile as she calls me trash. Anyway, he musta lost his temper or somethin’ cuz he turn on her and he give her a smack so fast I din’ even see him move and she fall down and don’t move, now I know her neck broke, I heard it snap. But even dead this bitch still talking” he affects an upper hive accept “very mature, I can just make a new one” he continues his tale “anyway tha freaky off-world vamp don’ like that so he says to her *I can still reach into the Astrobleme and pluck you out* well this getting kinda freaky so I take my cut of the cash and I head out, next thing I know, lots of my boys dead, my advice is this: Don’t let the spider-bitch hire you, she trouble man, she trouble!”That doesn’t really tell you much that you don’t already know but Kaelyn twitched a little when he said *Astrobleme* so maybe she knows what that is.Actions?>Ask other questions (what?)>Drop disguise, want a piece of me?>Ask them how much they hire for>Leave>Other (what?)
>>38266575>Ask other questions (what?)>"I assume you don't want to be hired against her either? A pity">Use the time to Psychic Surgery into him a reluctance to go after "the red-haired bitch", too much up-hiver trouble, and she's probably just as freaky

Psychic Surgery+ Did she hire anyone else is isPlease roll 2d20 (subtle, psychic surgery) plus vote on extra PE used.>>38266696CorrectPointing him at Jane and making him attack her would though.
>>38266696Baalzamon favor would probably be something like convincing him to lead a crusade against the spider bitch and suicide all his guys into the house.

>>38266717Get out of my mind anon!
>>38266714>>38266717I don't think it needs suiciding.Just making him develop a immense hateboner to want to help us against her would probably be enough.
>>38266734I meant it more as "they'd all get killed in the attack", not "we'd have to make him want to kill his own men".Goal isn't suicide, but prompting them to attack would just end up with them killing themselves.
>>38266754I understood what you meant. I don't think having them do it in a stupid fashion in which they die is necessary.If we would make them offer to help us in our own assault, that would probably suffice to please him.
>>38266770That's still suicidal. These dudes entering the fight is like throwing mice in a blender. It doesn't matter whether you send them in first alone or send them in later with a couple rocks accompanying them, it's still going to be a mouse smoothie.
“Did the bitch hire anyone else?” you ask. Rengel shrugs and starts listing off gang names. As he does you carefully reach into his mind and chip away at his desire to see you dead, convincing him that you’re too much trouble for him to want to have to deal with.Once that’s done you ask “other than the attack though, has she hired anyone for other stuff, like guards?”Rengel shrugs “Dunno” he says “No Iron Hawks tho, thas for sure.”“Aight” you give him a nod and are on your way. Once you are far enough away you ask Kaelyn “Astrobleme?”“It’s a canyon” she says “A big one, I read about it in school, supposedly started by a falling asteroid, and then carved out by water long ago.”“Water?” you ask “Apollyon has always been-”“Dry I know” says Kaelyn “but my teachers are convinced that once, it wasn’t. Anyway the Astromobleme is a deep Canyon, maybe a half-mile down, a few miles wide in places, and over 200 miles long. In the depths there are some odd creatures living. My father said that sometimes they dump the failed experiments there, new types of beastmen and such.”You nod glumly, a massive canyon full of monsters in which a mage lives who can see the future. Still, at least you know where she lives, you hope. “Where is it?” you ask Kaelyn“About six thousand miles away” says Kaelyn “give or take a few hundred? I can show you on a map.”Its late evening as you head back to the Waystation and you’re all feeling hungry.
What do you do next?Shee's To Do List1. Go after Kulrathe and/or his officers (plan?)2. Talk to Garrax (reunited)3. Seek the favour of one of the Five (which?)4. Contact the Rebellion (about what?) 5. Research the Fae Court/Palace, is there a way in?6. Make some more stuff for your Realm7. Take Research Facility back (how?)9. Talk to Yonsul 10. Go after Jade Crimsonthorne11. Head to the Astrobleme (hunt Jane Vindel)It is assumed that you will be doing the chosen task tomorrow morning, unless write-ins indicate going tonight.
>>38266913>11. Head to the Astrobleme (hunt Jane Vindel)Unless Kae can hand out darkvision to everyone, we kinda have to do it tomorrow.
>>38266904that explains the legs
If Rainya got FotDM, Flight 15, and maxed out Duplication+Plurality then she could turn into 500 90m tall sea monsters that fly around at just under mach 2.
>>38266913Can we give dev a budget to trick out his warmech? Sounds like things ahead may get dicy.
>>38266913>11. Head to the Astrobleme (hunt Jane Vindel)
>>38266949Sure you can, but it will take him time to get the parts and trick it out
>>38266949We can't really bring Dev.Lirael can carry Kae and Rainya if it comes to it, but not the warmech.And I wouldn't like to have to leave him behind.Unless he finds way to give the mech flight very fast.
>>38266904>“Water?” you ask “Apollyon has always been-”Cmon, Shee. You heard Mom say that she was going to have you bring the oceans *back* if you'd taken her deal instead of Baalzi's. You know that there were oceans.
and by miles, Kaelyn meant kilometres
>>38266982I think when we talk about "hundreds" that isn't really a relevant difference.
>>38266971Well, we can buy more hp for him, and bring him with rifle + sword + armor, which would help. His armor is pretty robust.Otherwise, we wait till psychics and let adaption get him like 30 more hp with mastery.Toughness x3 and some straight hp is about the only way to do it currently.
>>38266913>Ask favour from momWe need water
>>38266982Can Adaptive Mutation grow us wings when we fall, or just something to float with?>>38267002Buying more Hp for him is pretty ineffective, his Armour is already very good, carrying him will be a problem, although if absolutely necessary, Lirael could carry all of them.Its just that without the warmech, Dev doesn't do anything relevant for the upcoming fight.
>>38266913>>38266926Before we forget it again>Have Shee fill her vitae pool with blood fruitWe are going to need the extra PE
>>38267021>Its just that without the warmech, Dev doesn't do anything relevant for the upcoming fight.He is still a sniper and good with a sword.
>>38267021it would allow you to glide more than fly.Ok, so off to a distant canyon in the morning. I'm taking a 30 minute break, please plan who is coming and what you're bringing, as well as how you intend to find her in the length of the place.
>>38266913>Have Shee fill her vitae pool with blood fruit>11. Head to the Astrobleme (hunt Jane Vindel)
Idea: Oceanic reality summons a cube of water that doesn't expand beyond the boundaries, but inside of the boundaries it still acts like regular water. Now that we have Shadowcraft, we can open up portals of shadow that link two areas.What if we were to use Oceanic Reality to summon up a cube of water and then put a shadow portal in the middle of it at the bottom just above the boundary with the other end of the portal above the canyon?Sit there sucking down bloodfruits and spamming OR with the vitae to flood the place.
>>38267050He isn't weak, but not on the level of what we are going to need, and he is far too vulnerable to mindfuckery.>>38267062Did you miss the part where it doesn't leave its place? It doesn't leave it place, it will not go through the portal.Leaving aside we don't have oceanic reality anyway.
>>38267061Should load up the armory with fruit, to recharge.
>>38267089It does not extend beyond the boundaries, but it could still flow through a portal.
>>38267100Would fresh fruit count as 'living matter' in that case?
>>38267054I'm not sure about Dev, if he can get free for the day without problem, he could come with the warmech, but its not such a pressing need he would need to risk his job for it.Lirael, Rainya and Kae are a must, of course.I would suggest we use Clairsentience to scout the place, and have Kae look for signs of chaos magic.
>>38267089>He isn't weak, but not on the level of what we are going to need, and he is far too vulnerable to mindfuckery.Yeah, i was thinking about clearing through the trash, less boss fight.Too bad can't make a tinfoil hat with those anti magic slivers imbedded in to resist mind fuckery for him.
>>38267104No it can't. Because then it would be leaving its designated space.
>>38267135It's not something that prevents the water from ever leaving the space, it's a force box container thing around it. If there's a portal, it will flow.
>>38267104No, it doesn't say anything about not leaving its boundaries, you are trying top use wording that isn't there.It says we can fill a designated space, such as a canyon, or make a free floating cube.The water does not flow anywhere.We could spam OR to flood the canyon, but that would take such absurd efforts, that just making a single cube and then smacking her in FotDM is way better.
>>38267155>it's a force box container thing around itNo it isn't.The water simply doesn't go anywhere else.There is no boundary it doesn't cross or anything like that, its just that the water doesn't go anywhere else.
>>38267168>a single cube and then smacking her in FotDM is way better.FoTDM is bigger than every body of water created by OR save for the last one, and even then it's still 90% of the height of the cube. The submerged stats of FotDM are irrelevant unless we get to a not-desert planet, we flood this one somehow, or we're in our realm.
>>38267196>At Oceanic Reality 4 the maximum size of your summoned ocean extend to 50 metres on each side, and up to 50 metres deep.>to transform into sea monster 30 metres tall
>>38267196Hydrokinesis is an Ichor thing, under Creature of the Deep, IIRC.
>>38267222Aaaaaaand I'm dumb. I thought it was 90m for some reason.
>>38267226It is.>>38267232Mind, the point is rather irrelevant, since we don't even have OR4, and won't for a very long time, but even the Dry State is plenty intimidating.Although Ruler of Shadow might be better.
>>38267253RoS is better against pure magic and it's essentially godmode against shadow users. FotDM is (currently) better for pretty much anything else, especially if it's in water. Being able to run around at 50kph on land is hella good compared to RoS only being able to blob around at leisurely-stroll pace. I really wanna do FotDM+Blink and run around at 300kph as a giant sea monster
>>38267304>RoS is better against pure magicIts actually bad against magic, because it doesn't have any innate defense against magic, and has less HP.
>>38267334Its better against purely non-magical stuff though, because of the 5*(Willmod) DR.
Looks like Shee, Rainya, Lirael and Kae are coming.I was for Dev, however it appears that won't carry the vote regardless.I was mostly worried about him being an easy target while we are the fuck away from the hive.Ate we going to like rent an air car or just teleport there?
>>38267392>just teleport thereProbably that. Would have been good to have these airbikes now, but too late for that.He'd be useful with the warmech, but too vulnerable for mindfuckery, I understand wanting to bring him with us, and let him contribute, but its not really viable here.I really hope we get Psychic Infection soon.
>>38267427We could offer to turn him vamp once we get PoB if he wants. He probably won't, and I don't really like the idea either, but it is an option.
>>38267453There are a lot of things that are options, but still not good ideas.Even talking to him about worshipping Jagganatha is better than that.
>>38267427>He'd be useful with the warmech, but too vulnerable for mindfuckerySadly. We have put off that stuff a lot.We should then speak to him tonight and give him a budget to upgrade the mech. Turn it into a command mech for drones and shit to help scouting too.
>>38267461Hell, we could probably turn him into an AI with enough corruption and artifice.That'd actually be pretty sick if we could have make an antinite whatever that antimagic metal is called robot body that we can plug his core into.I think that would be pretty kick ass. Can't imagine anyone would actually go for it, though.
>>38267485A power armour using antinite would probably be viable for him.We need to see what sort of stuff those syrnian hunters use, thats what Dev needs.
Back and writing update, will put prep to a proper vote because yes, it is important, vote will be at the end of next update.
>>38267453There is.VampireImbued, need to convince KaeDhampirePsychics.Cyberentics.5 worship, one of themWe likely going with psychics though. Times like this make me wish we had a few more allies.
>>38267519We barely know what to do with those we have.We don't really need more, as such.Yonsul is probably going to join our band at some point, provided she doesn't die.Except for Cybernetics, we already got one of each kind.Also, Imbued is not just a matter of talking to Kae, she currently can't do it.
>>38267519Most of those aren't contradictionary, cybernetics might be an option, but I have the feeling Dev won't like enhancments like that.He definitly won't like any vampire or fae stuff.Not even sure he will be okay with Psychic Infection.
>>38267519None of those are mutually exclusive except for vamp and dhamp
>>38267534Mostly talking about having backup in case stuff goes south.Like if we had another psychic, they could have focused on that and unlocked infection or other abilities.Having 1 or 2 back here at the hive as backup for dev or such would not be bad.I wonder if Jade would still target our fri3nds, probably.
>>38267604So you mean allies, not directly companions?That I can agree with yeah, having more of those would be nice.But, we're working on it, and if Pally ever stops strangling us with plot threads (as if), it would be nice to reach out a few tentacles to other Reunited.
>>38267630Most reunited are going to be a conflict, unless we can get them to swear fealty to Shee.I kinda prefer companions due to enhanced growth rate, even if they are used more like allies.
After dinner you sit down with your friends and try to figure out what the plan is. Kaelyn manages to find some holos of the Astrobleme canyon and you all examine it, trying to figure out where your foe could be hiding, as well as what defences she could have.“It’s useless” says Kaelyn in dismay “the place is huge, the bottom of the canyon is riddled with caves, any one of which she could be hiding in, it’s full of monsters and experiments, not to mention the spells she has cast to protect it.”“Is that a way to find her though?” asks Rainya “wherever there is magic, so is she?”Dev shakes his head “More like *wherever there is magic, so is a trap*, if she’s been there a while she’ll have found safe spots and dangerous ones, she’ll have trails leading into monster lairs and the like.”“The sheer size is daunting” you say “I mean, how are we supposed to search something this big?”“Why not make her come to us?” asks Lirael “like, pretend we went hunting for her and now we’re all lost and helpless and when she attacks you turn into a ginormous monster and gobble her up?”You all pause and look at Lirael for a moment.“What?” she says.“This mage has been preparing for you though” says Kaelyn “and whilst she can’t predict what you’ll do now” you hope “she does still know your tricks, a ward against teleportation is normally very hard to spread over such a large area but with the Mirrors help....” Yeah and with the Mirrors help even your own Aspect of Impossibility might not be foolproof.“I need to decide” you say “who is going, what we’re taking with, and how we find her.”
Who?>Alone (except for Rainya)>With (who?)Again, it is assumed at least one Rainya will be going with Prep/supplies>Nothing, I can teleport after all>Backpacks with clothes, shelters, food etc, full camping gear>Hire a hovertruck packed full of goodies>Other (what?)And searching the place?>Just walk down it>Clairsentience and Chaos magic>Hire (or buy) some scanning gear, radar, thermals, the works>Other (what?)This is a general plan vote, there will be other decisions when you’re closer.
>>38267690Yeah no, I don't like looking at it in such a game-y perspective.Companions should be taken for people we hold close to us and that are a direct part of our team.Our family, as it were.>>38267713>Everyone, if Dev wants to comeShe is prepared for most of our tricks, she will be expecting magic, psychic and mutations, tech however, we barely ever use>Backpacks with clothes, shelters, food etc, full camping gear>Fill yourselves and Lirael up with blood fruits>Clairsentience and Chaos magic>Buy some scanning gear, radar, thermals, the works

>>38267844Damn...Here I thought I was being smartClairsentience doesn't count?
>>38267812>electron grenadesLets get some of those then, for her legs
>>38267885Its not really scrying.>>38267819>>38267794>>38267783And how do we get the hovertruck there?
So everyone, including Dev if he can get time off work.Backpacks *and* hovertruck and blood fruitsMagic and scanning gearOk, writing
>>38267913Pretty sure its a tie on the Hovertruck, I haven't voted, and I'm heavily against it , because how do we get them there?
>>38267929Drive it..? I assume Dev or Kae can drive
>>38267913>>38267929I agreew ith that, unless someone has a really good plan that doesn't involve driving the thing there, I'm against it.>>38267936Of course they can't. When would either of them have learned it?And wasting the hours to drive will just make it more likely our enemy discovers we are on the way.
>>38267929Fair point, I'll put that in the update as everyone discussing in character the merits thereof.
>>38267936>>38267939Driving 6000+ km instead of being there in seconds, possibly letting her know we're up to something by our disappearance and giving her a long amount of time to bypass our protections once?
>>38267961Can anyone of them drive?Last I know Dev and Rainya couldn't.Neither can Shee, so unless Kae can drive, its not actually a option.
>>38267903Does none of you fags pay any attention whatsoever? We already have electron grenades.
>>38267967Okay, maybe its not a good idea.But assuming we can't teleport home or out, then we are really out of luckMaybe we could have a backup Rainya bring it there as a backup
>>38267994Except that Rainya can't drive.
>>38268003How hard is it to drive, really? If this thing is anywhere near the difficulty of a real car, she could learn all she needs to drive across empty desert in about 5 minutes.
>>38268023A truck? No you can't.And the desert is everything but empty. There is a whole bunch of dangerous shit living there.
>>38268023>empty desert>and then Rainya got murdered by Geheganash
>>382680234xp10k credits a day or so in simulated training for dev.
“We’re all going” you say “Dev can you get time off work?”“Probably” says Dev “yeah, I might need to swap some shifts though, might be working solid for a couple of weeks after.”“Thanks Dev” you say “and supplies, we could be there for some time, we’ll all take full camping gear, backpacks with tents, travel clothing, food, portable stoves, the works, hell I think we should hire a hovertruck, we can set it up as a base camp somewhere that I can ‘port back to if needed.”“As for finding her” you nod to Kaelyn and Lirael we have a great mage and the best vampire on the planet we’ll find her. We’ll also bring top of the range scanner, radar, thermals, the works, it should see any monsters or experiments coming at us.”“Ok” says Kaelyn “who is driving, I mean, we are driving right? Or can you teleport a truck?”“Ah” you say, you recall that you don’t know how to drive a hovertruck.“I can” says Dev “I can drive”“Since when?” scoffs Rainya“I work at a garage” says Dev “I’ve had to learn how, I’m not saying I’m road legal yet, but I know how.”“Shee can teleport it!” says Lirael loyally.You probably can, still, that distance would require 3-4 jumps and would use a lot of power, though with Liraels help and some of your bloodfruit you could do it without exhausting yourself.Are you bringing a truck?>Y/NAnd will you be teleporting it?>Y/N*N* assumes Dev will be driving it there
>>38268092YTeleport it one jump drive the rest
Couldn't we seed the canyon with some kind of horrible space murder-kudzu stuff that's near impossible to get rid of?
>>38268092>NIf we have to teleport it, there isn't even any point, the only good thing about using a vehicle would be not having to teleport.
>>38268133Its as a getaway option is we can't teleport away
>>38268127yes you couldWant to try that?
>>38268092YYTeleport it like 500 kilometers from the ravine and drive the rest of the way.
>>38268146Why don't we just fly?
>>382681566000m is long
>>38268092>NWe should use the shadow portal to get close to the canyon though.>>38268150Not really, can't see what it would accomplish, except give our presence away even faster.Unless we can grow anti-magic plants there is really no point.
>>38268150Sure, it might annoy her he we fail
>>38268171And, why would we be unable to teleport for the entire length of it?
>>38268195Did you read Pally's post? The mirror will most likely preventing us (through his agent ofc)
>>38268092>Y>>38268152>Teleport it like 500 kilometers from the ravine and drive the rest of the way.
Are we doing something with antimagic metal before we leave?
>>38268228How will he do so, after we killed her?Don't be stupid and undemine the valid arguments for using the Hovetruck as a fast base while searching, with your retarded "to get away" shit.
ok, no truck, writing
>>38268251I am just saying, it would be nice to have a plan b, if we fail to kill her. That is an option you know. Not that it matters now.
>>38268293If we fail to kill her she has either fled, and isn't in any shape to hinder our teleporting, or we are dead.
>>38268313I like your confidence. Lets hope it is not misplaced
>>38268251I was voting for it, and teleporting it nearby, like 500km out, so we could sneakish our way in and have a mobile base able to haul almost 1 ton or morw of supplies. Now it is just what we can carry. Volume does matter, despite how funny having Shee and Kae carey around giant backpacks may look.Sadly at work so i could not easy make arguments on the clock. Don't know if we got abilities that make drinking water.Gonna be a lot of ration bars to eat.
We should tell management that we will be away for a while
>>38268358We don't really have a ton of supplies, and you forget the carrying capacity of the warmech.Allowing us to move fast through the canyon without teleport, that would have made it worth it.But for carrying stuff, between Kae, Shee and the warmech, thats not a issue.Non-vital stuff, will be in the arsenal anyway.
“A truck will be too much hassle” you say “yeah, we won’t be taking that, just what we can carry, now, as for what we’re taking...”You spend the rest of the evening planning, and writing out a shopping list. Early the next morning you set out together and buy backpacks, camping year and supplies, including food, and water purification tablets. You pack as much as you can carry into your bags and you pack your dimensional arsenal full of anything you might find useful too.You also tell Ms Carter that you will be away for a few days.---A series of teleportations later, you are all at one end of a long canyon, staring down into the abyss below. The light only penetrates so far, you cannot see the bottom.What you and Kaelyn can clearly sense however, is a strong aura of chaos magic, permeating the entire canyon, but neither of you can say what it does exactly.“That looks like a long climb down” says Dev, his voice echoing in his helmet, wearing his power armour.“Yeah” agrees one of the Rainyas“Pfft, easy” says Lirael, flapping her wings.You fire up the bulky portable scanner you have bought with you, it can just reach the bottom of the canon at this end, though the resolution isn’t great at that distance. There’s nothing hostile or dangerous can detect, but there is a fast stream of river, and plant life, huh, interesting...It also tells you that the canyon floor is a half-kilometre down from where you are standing.“Lets get to it” says Kaelyn grimlyYou could climb (or teleport) down and head along the canyon floor.You could walk along the top and use the scanner.Or you could stay here whilst Kaelyn and Lirael use their powers to seach along the canyon stretching into the distance.Or you could do something else.Actions?>Head down into the canyon (how?)>Walk along the top, using the scanner>Stay and use magic and psychic powers (gestalt? Y/N)>Other (what?)

You, Kaelyn and Lirael sit down on some rocks as the Rainya squad and Dev guard your backs. You and Lirael link minds and reach out, peering down into the canyon below.Around you the wind howls and dust begins to settle on you. You see into the canyon...Its dark down there, not much light penetrates and yet there is life down there, a fast flowing river travels down the canyon and on either side there are trees, ferns, all sorts of plants. You see rodents and birds, insects and lizards and what they hell they are huge!Even the rats down there appear to be at least a metre long, and the insects and birds are of proportionate size, you’re probably outweighed by some of those things flying around. Long vines hang between trees and climb up the cliff edges, growing wide leaves that cling to the cliff sides to absorb light.As your point of view travels down the river you see a plant reach out and snatch up a rat, tendrils piercing the giant rodents body and draining it of fluids as the things struggles weaken.Then the vision starts to grow dim, you can feel a vast and yet somehow placid mind pushing against yours, forcing you away, no matter how you struggles against this strength it is like trying to hold back the tide. You open your eyes and Lirael looks at you in awe and a little fear “Shee what was that?” she asks.You shake your head “I don’t know” you say.At the same time Kaelyn opens her eyes, a look of confusion on her face “Shee” she says uncertainly “It’s like this whole place is one giant chaoswell, but that’s impossible.”“To me” you say “it felt like the whole place was...alive...somehow.”Dev and the Rainyas share a worried look.What now?>Walk along the edge with the scanner>Head down into the...jungle? (how?)>Other (what?)
>>38268931>Walk along the edge with the scanner>Until close to where we we got stopped
>>38268931>Walk along the edge with the scanner
>>38268931"We could just drop a WMD in there. Making a bomb in my realm wouldn't be too hard, and it'd stop her from coming back here. What could possibly go wrong?"
>>38268931So.. is she tapping the chaoswell for power? Or is she fused with it or something?
>>38268970We can't make a bomb in our realm at this point.Let alone one that could cover the canyon>>38268931>Walk along the edge with the scanner
>>38268989Gaheganesh is a desert.In case you didn't notice, this is not one.
>>38268931>Head down into the...jungle? (Fly down)
>>38268931>>Walk along the edge with the scanner>>Until close to where we we got stopped
>>38268931>>Walk along the edge with the scanner
>>38269000Someone else, then? Whatever's down there is on the same scale.
>>38269093And you know that how? We know nothing about either of these things that would allow for a comparison.
Rolled 1 (1d5)You head along the top of the canyon, the scanner reading all the different living creatures you found down there. You companions walk at you side. After a kilometre you get to the points where you were pushed out, the feeling of chaos magic is strong here, but only slightly more than it was before.The scanner is...picking up all sorts of life forms, but no cybernetics in its range, nothing that would indicate Jane Vindel or any sort of super-organism, just the jungle, and the creatures within it. But what could have pushed you out?“Well?” asks Kaelyn “Are we just going to wander along the whole canyon length with the scanner, or are we going down?”“Or better yet” quips Dev “are we going home?”Well?>Keep walking, keep scanning>Head down (method?)>Leave (go gome)>Other (what?)
>>38269133>Head down (method?)>Shee heads down first with one Rainya and Kae, using tentacles to stabilize>Once we know its safe, Lirael carries Dev and the Rainyas down
>>38269133I really really hope 1 is not her lucky number.>Head down (Get flown down in shifts)Shee first
>>38269133>Shee heads down first with one Rainya and Kae, using tentacles to stabilize>Once we know its safe, Lirael carries Dev and the Rainyas down>>38269195You do realise if we get down alone first, our protection vanishes?
>>38269208Not if we maintain mind-link, my friend (we asked in the beginning of the thread)
>>38269133>Shee heads down first with one Rainya and Kae, using tentacles to stabilize>Once we know its safe, Lirael carries Dev and the Rainyas down
>>38269228>Not if we maintain mind-link, my friendYou haven't written to establish a Mind Link with Rainya though.And since psychic power use could be dangerous here, thats something you would need to specify.
>>38269133Pally, if Lirael would use Shadow Arms in gestalt, would they have Strength equal to Shees or to Liraels Willpower score?Does gestalt even affect Shadowcraft, when it comes from vampire powers?
>>38269271Good point.>>38269195>>38269133While maintaining contact with Rainya
“There doesn’t seem to be any other option” you say, resigned to your fate “Let’s go” You gesture to one of the Rainyas, and to Kae and the three of you start descending into the depths. With your tentacles and Kaelyns strength and agility its easy, and although Rainya isn’t the fastest, she doesn’t lack for endurance. You keep a couple of tentacles ready to grab her just in case though.It takes a long time for you three to get to the bottom of the canyon, all around you is a lush, thriving jungle, despite the darkness. You can see fine but Rainya and Kaelyn both peer around myopically. As foreboding as this place is, nothing has attacked you yet. You connect to Liraels mind and tell her to bring the others down. One at a time Lirael flies your allies down, saving one of the Rainyas for last.When you’re all down, Lirael asks you, breathing heavily “now what?”“Now” you say “we head in deeper” and together, you all head into the jungle...---And that’s it for today, thank you for playing. Next thread is Saturday, expected 7PM BST but time to be confirmed via twitter.For your actions today you gain 6 XPApologies for the short updates today, I've been flagging a bit after so many days in a row
>>38269309>Pally, if Lirael would use Shadow Arms in gestalt, would they have Strength equal to Shees or to Liraels Willpower score?The best Willpower score is used>Does gestalt even affect Shadowcraft, when it comes from vampire powers?Shadowcraft is a psychic ability, even if Lirael is using a different way to get at it.
>>38269401Thanks for running Pally, Jungle Exploration is Go!I'm just sad that if we did take the risk to inform anyone we are gone, we didn't also message Yonsul, she should know that.
>>38269401Thanks for running, and its perfectly understandable you are drained now, hope you have a restful week.There isn't much planning with 6XP I suppose.
>>38269401Its cool Pally. Hope to catch you SaturdayNo need for apologies if you promise 1 not the scrying number
>>38269416If we ever get Split Mind, could we use it in gestalt to have both bodies act independent?Or would it only be able to move one body and one mind?
>>38269494>If we ever get Split Mind, could we use it in gestalt to have both bodies act independent?Yes
No cliffhanger. That's kinda rare.
>>38269516I could have something attack you if would prefer?
thanks for running pally! You're aces!
>>38269557Thanks for running, mang. Best of luck with the restaurant shit.
Can we ask Kaelyn How much we can sell this Chaos Well for? I think we have a way to buy of her dad.
>>38269912We have no way to claim or enforce ownership of it, so we can't sell anything.And to assume the high ranking fae don't know about a huge chaos well on their planet is kinda silly.
>>38269912Might be natural chaos energy.Doubt he would care.
>>38269912>Implying it's actually a chaos well>Implying we can sell it>Implying the Fae don't already know about it and haven't abandoned the not!chaoswell for reasons>Implying we'd want to buy off Reaper like that even if we could>Implying any amount of wealth or power matters to Reaper as much as his daughter
>>38269951>implying its not alive
>>38269971It being alive wouldn't neccessarily prevent us from selling it.
>>38269993The comment >>38269934 made still applies.But it does not prevent us some messing with itIn fact it makes it so much more fun
>>38269951Living bundle of chaos or life magic, that pereates the area.Bet the intensity of it gives her a lot to draw power from and scrambles attempts to scry it.
>>38269934>>38269940>>38269951>>38269971OK I take it that won't work, can anyanon dream up a way to use Absorb Spell on this GameBraker prediction spell? I want one and will block all xp spending to aford it if I can.Please Pally? I'll stop trying to make the Plantpire implant if you let us.
>>38269971Hey, on the restaurant stuff, feel free to forward my contact info to AA.
>>38270129Thanks, will do
>>38270121If it were somethign we could Absorb, we would have already had the option to do so. Clearly it isn't used directly on us, and therefore not absorbable.
>>38270145>Clearly it isn't used directly on us, and therefore not absorbableSo we need some kind of "I am my realm" thing to catch it? Good work anon.
>>38270197Pretty sure Scrying doesn't count as targeting anything.
>>38270145>>38270227They're right you know, it would be impossible to absorb it, it would be a corruption of how the ability works, even to protect your family
>>38270281So, Corruption version of Absorb Spell when?
>>38270227Pity, as it and Absorb Spell come from Mirror Absorb Spell was probably the wrong way to go about it, we need a way to take the power of our dead foes.Who should we ask about that?
>>38270307Probably still Mirror.That sort of thing is pretty much all him.I think there was mention of a cannibalism power at some point, but I think that was removed? I don't remember.
>>38270307>a way to take the power of our dead foes.It was already offered, no one wanted it
>>38270325 Looking for gifts offered is seriously hard in the archive. What was the name again?
>>38270325The one where you eat them?
>>38270351>I love you some much Pally, your quest and best of all your humour
>>38270325Was it from Mirror? If we get it for killing Mirror Bitch can we get the Scry power? What should we name that power anyway?
>>38270353People called it too much of an xp sink so turned it down. Think it was maybe a Baal power?Low levels let you take appearance, bu eating a part of their flesh.High levels you gain powers and eventually just need to touch someone.
>>38270353>>38270380Corpse EaterEach part of the body to gain their shape, an expansion allows you to gain the abilities of those you each even in your normal form.
>>38270408Wasn't Mirror, pretty sure it was Ichor, actually.
What about an indomitable aspect? (Gives us a stacking bonus for repeatedly doing the same thing)
>>38270435Oh that. Yeah, fuck that still. It's gross.
>>38270435Sooo cool, but alas also very sick and wrong. we are totally going to get this when we get more evil
>>38270418>Think it was maybe a Baal power?Ichor, it was kinda inconvenient, and Resilient Fluid Body was offered in the same batch, so it didn't really stand a chance.
There *is* a Baalzamon power that has the same effect without the corpse eating, it just takes time to study the still-living target
>>38270489There is no way we are going to get it, not with the whole moral thing we got going.>>38270528now this is interesting
>>38270528I'm not sure the eating part was the problem.The power wasn't very unpopular, it just couldn't compete with being another of Rainyas fetishes.I guess the DR is pretty good too.
We gonna get psychics with Shee next right?After the vampire progenator thing?So we can grant them to people.
>>38270544>not with the whole moral thing we got goingWhat moral thing?We don't have a moral thing.And even if we did, eating a steak from a enemy has nothing to do with morals.
>>38270449So we bring back the ocean for mum by flooding that canyon to get that power at a high level so we can get Cheat Sheet powers.>>38270528Or this.>>38270281Or this... Why do we not have this power yet anon?
>>38270570Going to take a while, but probably.>>38270591>so we can get Cheat Sheet powersThe power was tailor made against us, I doubt we can get much use out of it, and we would have to take her crippled form for it. Fuck that.
>>38270471In other words, never.Even if we did turn evil (which we won't, because fuck evil QMCs), it'd still be just as much of an XP sink as before.>>38270571We kind of do.
>>38270652>We kind of do.I don't even know what you're talking about.Shee was never "moral", she got standards, if that.
>>38270691We are not having this fucking debate over you not understanding what the word moral means again, anon.
>>38270652>We kind of do.Not really?I can't remember Shee ever making a effort to do something or avoid doing something because its the "right thing".She always does whats prudent.Thats sometimes mindraping people, and sometimes its not mindraping people.
>>38270638But anon we could use a power from Mirror to thak the power Mirror tailor made to mess with us.If that's wrong I don't want to be right.
>>38270700No, I think you confuse restraint with morals.I can't remember Shee being moral, ever.Let alone to such an extent that eating the flesh of her enemies would be problematic for her.
>>38270755No, fuck you, we are not having this debate over the fucking semantics of the word moral again.
>>38270810Its not about semantics, you are just plain wrong in claiming Shee is moral, or we have a moral thing.
>>38270828I'm not even that guy you idiot. I just don't want to have the same debate over this idiocy again.
>>38270859What guy? I don't even know what debate you are talking about. You started about some argument you allegedly had at some point with someone.And I'm just pointing out that semantics has nothing to do with why claiming "we have a moral thing" is just wrong.
>>38270728Okay then, operation genocide is back on. Pretty prudent to make sure we get the entire clan when we get revenge for Ash's death instead of just a few individuals.
>>38270885>wasting resources to do something for a dead person is prudentNah, you're just a idiot.
>>38270908It wouldn't even be a waste of resource, we make the plants out of nothing *and* we'd get paid millions of credits for them. The genocide is a side effect.
>>38270921Design a plant that does that, then we talk about if its prudent.Because if this is the retarded "make them blow up" thing, I probably don't need to tell you that Clan Oubliette doesn't live in greenhouses.
>>38270810I was think the same thing.. >Scruples, morals, standards, restraint, ethics, qualms, or just a line not to cross..I think you know what was meant.Also not all of us speaks english as a first language, try to keep that in mind.
>>38270947Those are all different things though.Most of them, anyway.>>38270921And those plants distribute themselves, without ever being linked back to us?
>>38270947I think he's paranoid it'll respark an argument about morals vs ethics that ate a thread in Paladin of Joy. God that was a stupid argument.>>38270944He was probably referring to the gene-virus idea, where it would spread to any Oubliette vampire in contact with a carrier or one of the plants. Made Letum rot and living vampires sterile, IIRC.
>>38271001>God that was a stupid argument.I liked it.Fucking Mathrian, I miss him.
>>38270947There are certain things Shee will or will not do. Of coarse those limits change on the day of the week and the time of the daymThat is the problem with board quests.
>>38270977>And those plants distribute themselves, without ever being linked back to us?We've got a lot of abilities, I'm sure we can figure something out.>>38270944What >>38271001 said.
>>38271001>He was probably referring to the gene-virus idea, where it would spread to any Oubliette vampire in contact with a carrier or one of the plants. Made Letum rot and living vampires sterile, IIRC.That would require pretty significant effort to engineer, to make sure it hits every Oubliette vampire in such a fashion it affects no one else, and gets all of them fast enough they can't retaliate.How is that prudent as "side-effect", when we can just make regular cash crops with far less effort?
>>38271083Because I want to see if we can do it and letting the Oubliette vampires go annoys me.
>>38271029>There are certain things Shee will or will not do.I don't think eating flesh is among these thing she won't do.Unless Lirael objects to that sort of thing heavily, which I doubt, she'd find it icky at worst.
>>38271023you and me both anon
>>38271001I haven't played Paladin of Joy, but I intend to read it. It sounds horrible anon, truely does
>>38271083Cash crops. I figure with some artifice would could make plants that either grow cybernetics or grow shit like medical nanites that heal/regenerate people.Some weird shit from combining stuff.
>>38271109You claimed that genocide plan would be a prudent thing to do.Which it isn't.Its petty revenge, and thats useless except as deterrent, but since the Oubliettes are cool with us now, it doesn't even serve that.>>38271120He was probably sad when we lost the Hope score.>>38271138Cash crops are cool, but why waste ffort on having them make do shit they don't need to for profit?
>>38271165Different anon, why should Shee be cool with them after they tortured her childhood friend in order to destroy his mind as part of a plan to trap her?Shee is not an emotionless machine, I expect that the next time we run into an Oubliette vampire it will end in his death. It's just that chasing that particular piece of our revenge isn't something we can really do (for now), though.
>>38271165>Cash crops are cool, but why waste ffort on having them make do shit they don't need to for profit?If we wanted too we could even create plants that would grow in the desert, ate dust and somehow created water as long as it was dry.Or any other type of things that could improve dusters lives too. Survival currently eats so much of our time. I hope we are on the right track here.Pally is likely lining up a nice list of upcoming fights for us in here.After all, what sort of creatures would even fae call abominations that they made and were disposed of.
>>38271253>why should Shee be cool with themThats a completly different matter. I never said she is, it was about if revenge on the Oubliettes is prudent.Meaning, something we gain practical benefit from that exceeds the invested resources.It isn't such a thing.And I for one have no interest in revenge against them. We killed their mate, they killed our mate. As long as they stay the fuck away from us, I'm fine with them.
>>38271335That's not really how revenge or emotions work.If they step on the planet they're dead, if we have an opportunity to paste some of them I'd take it, once we ascend to godhood we're wiping their clan out in an afternoon. Those are my plans in regards to it.
>>38271294>what sort of creatures would even fae call abominations that they made and were disposed of.
>>38271396I don't want to enter the magical jungle.
>>38271294>If we wanted too we could even create plants that would grow in the desert, ate dust and somehow created water as long as it was dry.That falls to me under the "imrpove Duster conditions" plan we wanted to put into action once we have a bit of breathing space again.
>>38271368>once we ascend to godhood we're wiping their clan out in an afternoonBaalzi would have done so a long time ago if it were that easy.And Revenge and Emotions don't work in a uniform way.You want revenge on them? Vote for it.Then you'll see if others give as much of a shit as you do.
>>38271253>why should Shee be cool with themShe isn't, but killing all and any Oubliette vampire is not cool. We have a beef with a group of them.Its the same way we don't hate all fae equally, all reunited, or to be a little blunt all humans, even though someone from each category has wronged us.
>>38271472I really don't think he is alone in wanting to see them punished for what they did. But the hated, for me at least only extend to those few Oubliette involved
>>38271478Like our vampire clan won't end up in a war with them regardless.No shadow powers, just void. And likely a list of abilities that will make us just as liked as the Graced.>>38271396Save us from Pallys magical jungle.Shee will likely get a real welcome to the jungle soon
>>38271435Yeah, we should really get on that.Its a shame we haven't really talked about it for a while
>>38270528Baalzamon confirmed for best god once against.
>>38271435>That falls to me under the "imrpove Duster conditions" plan we wanted to put into action once we have a bit of breathing space again.I'll back that but it needs a catchy name, I'm naming the "use our Aspects to Absorb Spell Mirrors game braking scry" plan "Wonderful Toys" btw.
>>38271545>Save us from Pallys magical jungle.Lirael is with us, she is like a repellent when it comes to magical realm stuff.Nothing is going to happen, my logic is flawless
>>38271472>And Revenge and Emotions don't work in a uniform way.They usually at least stay somewhat uniform within the individual, and Shee was pretty pissed. Like if we had a higher Corruption and failed a Will save, I'd expect a large amount of that level of the hive to be a near-literal hell from her anger bleeding into reality level of pissed.>Then you'll see if others give as much of a shit as you do.In general it seems to be popular, though a lot of people are squeamish about genocide.>>38271478I kind of want to wipe them out still, but I get your point. I'll keep my murderboner at a manageable level.Had to restart my web browser to get captcha to load. Fucking 4chan.
>>38271613Yeah but what do you have to do to gain power from them?
>>38271553Dusters could use stuff that makes food, building and clothing material and general health right?Ideally while removing dust.
>>38271613If by best you mean better than the Mirror and inferior to all the other gods, then yes.
>>38271638>In general it seems to be popularNot really, there is like, two or three of you at most. You are just very vocal and opinionated.
>>38271655I agree, no need to preach for the choir
>>38271644Oh nothing much, I'm sure. Betray you're friends.We'll probably come into the power by chance eventually. Brutally mindrape someone and bend then to your will.Baalzi's not nearly as bad as people think he is. Turn a family against itself in a viscous firestorm of hate and secrets.
>>38271638I still want them dead, maybe not to the clan but any stepping foot on our planet and the leadership. Killing them all isn't right.>>38271655Yeah, when we aren't getting attacked or rushed on all sides we need to work on it.>>38271677I think there are more than that. Shee was legitimately pissed. The Oubliettes get no free passes. We can take our time with them though.
>>38271638>They usually at least stay somewhat uniform within the individual, and Shee was pretty pissed.She didn't express much feelings, or any really, about the Oubliette vampire.If she would feal that vengeful towards them, she would have had some thoughts about having that guy slip through her fingers.But she didn't.Her hate is pretty much focused on Jade and MirrorA.
>>38271677I tend agree>RevengeYes, for Ash>GenocideW-wait a minute, what!? Where did that come from?
>>38271711>I still want them dead, maybe not to the clan but any stepping foot on our planet and the leadership. Killing them all isn't right.Thats fine, no doubt in the future they will return to hunt down Shee.We will kill the fuck out of them then.
Did AA ever finish up the thingy?
>>38271786He did, but I need time to read and edit.Expect a BIG chunk of XP at the top of next thread
>>38271726I am pretty sure we didn't know they were involved at the time, mate.>>38271638Captcha is not happy atm
>>38271788>>38271788Didn't we go with the manifestation pool for these?That one should be pretty big by now.>>38271789>I am pretty sure we didn't know they were involved at the time, mateWhat are you talking about?I mean when Shee found out the vampire she had in her realm for two days was the one who tortured Ash.If she were actually that vengeful towards the Oubliettes, she would have had more of a reaction to that realisation.
>>38271826Didn't we first find out after we let him go?
>>38271826We let him go before that actually. We wanted to find him but he was long gone.
>>38271850>>38271880YES THAT WAS THE POINT.Are just dense or something?She would have reacted a bit more about the fact she just let the guy go who she now saw had tortured Ash.If she would have had that strong feelings about their involvement, you'd think she'd be more angry at having let him go.
