Worlds collide and clash, as doors open and energy floods in, all with one destination. Forces beyond sight smash together and impact with shattering explosions. Two grand armies match up against their counterpart, one of the abyss and one of existence. And into this, a change is about to occur, something to shift the balance.A glimmering light shines over… There. Wait. Where is there? Who are you?>Are you a boy? Or are you a girl?>How old are you?Rolls will be a DC system in divisions of 5 using the D100, taking the best of the first three for the most part. Alternative systems may arise as time goes on, but we’ll see.
I'll keep options open for another few minutes, but it seems to be quite clear
Right, you are a boy. Well, more like a young man. You remember yourself as being... 24? 26? Somewhere around that. Either way. It doesn't really seem to matter too much, what with the entire "swimming in blackness and I can't see anything but this one point of light" business.Speaking of that, you... swim? towards the light source. As it gets closer and closer, you hear a high pitched ringing noise that grows in intensity and frequency as you approach. Eventually, it grows to the point that you squeeze your eyes shut and open your mouth to try and relieve the pressure. Just as suddenly as it came, it disappears again. You open your eyes as your feet touch ground! You look around and see ->Roll a D5 to determine what kind of world you ended up in. I will take the first one that appears twice.This will affect the way you will grow and interact with the worlds around you, as well as the way your power will grow.

You step out into the blinding light and see... a small village. It appears to be late at night, judging by the presence of the twin moons in the night sky and generous sprinkling of stars. It also seems to be the only reason that you haven't been accosted in some way for randomly appearing in the middle of the main street. You glance around yourself and shudder, it's cold! Well, it is the middle of the night and you aren't wearing... anything. Uh oh. That could be problematic. It's really freaking cold right now, and with no clothes you could freeze to death quite quickly. You glance around. The village seems to be more or less like a normal village straight out of a fantasy game. Blacksmith, Inn, market square, homes. Only you have no idea where you are.>What do?
>>41065199Head for the nearest home and see if they hung any clothes out to dry.
>>41065262>>41065199Sure why not.
>>41065302>>41065262You head towards a small house made out of wood, and sneak around the side. The snow makes things both easier and harder to do, as it bogs you down and crunches under your toes. However, it does mask the noise when you fall over a rock and it lessens the impact quite a bit. As you approach the window, you see a large sheet has been hung out to dry in an easy to access place, which you quickly swipe. There are other clothes there, but they won't be so easy to get to.>Attempt to get the other clothes. A bedsheet won't cut it!

>>41065554Ok then. That's a critical success.You move like a ninja, whipping up with the bedsheets and grasping the end of the cloth tightly. You swing the sheet around and it responds like a snake, coiling up and over and wrapping around the centre of a number of clothes. Giving it a sharp crack, you swing it in and grasp the clothes. A full set, in your size too and made for winter. Perfect. Two minutes later, there you stand, resplendent in your new clothes. You still, however, have no idea what to do or where to go now. One thing does stand out though. You have zero money.>What do?

It doesn't seem to be damaged at all, yet it's apparent that it's been deserted for some time. You quickly make your way inside. Everything seems to be well furnished and equipped.

You decide that in order to properly achieve anything, you need to explore your new abode. You drop the bedsheet on the ground and head further into the house.One fruitful search later, and you have uncovered a good supply of non-perishable food in the pantry, a pair of shoes (GOOD. Your feet were freezing!) and a small wallet. The previous owners must have been in a serious rush to get out of this place. You head further into the house and uncover a cellar. You decide to go in, bravery overruling common sense and you quickly find yourself in a tunnel system.After exploring the first few bends, you deduce that this system goes on for quite a while.What do?>Go on, explore! Who knows what could be down here!>Head back, you've seen enough for now.>Stay here but don't explore any further. You could make this into a new personal base.

This cannot bode well.You turn around as a whistling wind flows past you from deeper in the cave. Almost immediately you can tell the difference - those paired floating orbs were definitely not there a second ago. And they definitely weren't getting closer at a rapid rate. As the... thing becomes visible, you can clearly tell that it's a spirit of some description as it lunges at you.Time jerks to a halt.A scream of rage can be heard in the distance.A shimmering, multi coloured aura surrounds your body, refracting with light and casting specks around the cavern.

>10You feel suddenly weightless. A floating sensation within yourself and outside yourself. You look around and see that you are back in the black space that you were in before you entered that world that you were in just seconds before. That bright light from before is back and approaching you. You feel a certain sense of apprehension as it approaches you and begins to solidify. It's actually really goddamn big. Like REALLY goddamn big. And then it completely solidifies. It's a dragon. A gigantic black dragon that ripples with power, visible as a shining black aura covering its body. It lowers its head and looks you square in the eye with one of its own, larger than your entire body and a solid shimmering white. You gulp as you expect any number of horrible ends."So you're the one that is to be with me for the rest of time?"That definitely wasn't what you expected. A middle aged, somewhat sassy female voice. You look around and think about where it could have come from until you are sure that, yes, it had to have come from the dragon."I am Tiamat.

The revenant's claws bite into your arm in hold there as you let out a scream of agony. The creature rips its arm sideways and the claws open a massive rent right the way down your right arm, rendering it useless.

The Revenant is clearly uninjured, while you are the opposite. And it knows it. The creature bears its fanged maw before lunging at you anew, with terrifying speed. But this time, you are ready for it. And waiting for it.You raise your ruined right arm with difficulty and place it in the path of the incoming revenant. You can feel the power you now possess, as We, inside your frame. You push it, feeling it flow forward and outwards, rapidly spilling and overflowing, until!>PassYou arm shifts. With an intense crawling and itching sensation, scales ripple out of your arms at the middle of the upper arm and flow downwards, past your elbow, passing over your hand and massive claws spring from your fingers, starting at the second joint.

>>41068241And yes, I do know this is bad, but I had to get it out of my brain. It was stuck and rattling something fierce.
The revenant is clearly keeping it's distance now. It isn't sure what to expect, having seen its supposedly defenceless prey turn into a legitimate threat. Good. You can use that time.You turn inwards again, diving for that well of power that exists in the blank space. As you enter the blank space you see Tiamat again, who raises(?) an eyebrow(?) at you. "My, you're quick. The last Spirit Pair that I was with took years to gather enough courage to come back here and try to fully access the power of We. I suppose that I can reward that kind of forward thinking.""Just be aware, too much of this power in a frame unused to it could be potentially lethal. Be sure to keep this power to levels that We can handle, oh Pair of We. I will warn you if you go too far."As your mind is rapidly ripped out of the blank space, you find yourself back where you were, with a tremendous power thundering through your veins, threatening to tear you inside out. You catch that power and mould it, flooding it along your body as that itching returns in full force, over your entire body this time. It is all you can do to not stop. It is, however, worth it. As the sensation fades, you feel different. Your entire body is coated in scales now, with massive claws on your hands and feet. You can feel sharp fangs in your mouth and as you shake your head, the feeling of hair is no longer present, replaced with horns. You can feel the weight of wings at your back and a tail extending from the spine. You smile and chuckle at your new body and are slightly shocked as the chuckle is echoed with a low growl from your own throat.The Revenant has had enough of this shit and is out of here. It turns tail and flees, rocketing down the passage. You can understand its feelings. You look pretty terrifying right now.1/2

>That'll do, release the transformation, Tiamat mentioned that this might be a bit much.With a low sigh/growl, you undo the transformation, letting the scales ripple back into your skin. You notice now that when your scales appear and disappear your clothing goes with it. That means that when you are fully transformed, you must be wearing absolutely nothing. "Do not worry about your modesty" you hear Tiamat growl. "When We have the frame enter a more battle ready form, our two genders cancel out as they mix. Our transformed frame is androgynous." Well, that's at least partially comforting.You do, however, have a decision to make. You aren't nearly as helpless as before, but you still have no idea where you are, or where you are going.>Continue into the cave system.

>Continue into the cave system. Exploration!You decide to head further into the cave. Who knows what that revenant could get up to. And, more to the point, who knows what other things could be down here.As you travel further into the cave system, you begin to mark pillars with symbols to indicate where you have been so you don't get lost. You round one final corner and stop dead as you behold a terrifying and appalling sight.There are ghosts of all kinds down here, harmless for the most part but ruled over by a caste of revenants. The revenants think nothing of brutally devouring one of the harmless kind and rule them with an iron grasp. Every now and then, you see a normal ghost, overcome with rage, transform into a revenant, at which point it becomes just like the others. And at the pinnacle of this, you see a large skeletal ghost draped in faded finery with a large red gem pulsing at its chest. This is clearly the leader.What do?>Nope.jpg. Out of here.

>Aggress only on the revenants/leader>Transform arm and torso (comes with tail and wings)As you begin to transform, feeling your upper body garments disappear, leaving your pants behind as scales and talons take their place, you hear Tiamat's voice. "The big one is a Greater Lich. With the level of connection that We possess in the blank space, he will be a difficult challenge. The revenants will come to his aid. Try and eliminate as many of them as possible before he notices."With that in mind you decide to fuck stealth with a ten foot pole and charge straight up the middle. You can feel Tiamat's unconscious approval even as you rush forward, grasping an unsuspecting revenant from behind and tearing him bodily in two. The Lich King rises and begins to chant, black energies flooding his form as magical energy thrums in the region."I approve of this course of action, however, We may be under equipped for this.

I think that I can get more out of this for no backlash at all!" Well that's a comforting thought.As your mind is pulled out of the blank space you feel a massive flood of power enter you again, only it doesn't hurt like last time. This time, it flows up to your mind and gives you a certain... altered perspective on things. Namely, everything looks a little different.But there's a time for that later. The Lich King is still there!.. And he looks like he's prepared a pretty nasty spell by the look of that giant comet he's got there.You, however, are unafraid as you extend your hand, your improved connection with Tiamat allowing you to understand your capacity. The capacity of We. The natural power of your Spirit Pair. The power of the Dragon of Gravity. You reach out with your clawed hand and PULL.The Meteor flies out of the Lich Kings hand and flies past, before coming to a rest in the gravity well that you have just summoned over your head. He attempts to speak but gets no further than "What did you just -" Before you flatten him against the floor with a blast of gravitic energy.>Congratulations! You have now grasped the power of the union that you are part of. We is the power of the Gravitic Draconus. You're still bad at using it, but you grasp the basic concepts.What do?>You have a giant flaming rock. Use it. You're pretty confident that Lich is still alive.>Drop the rock, that'll do. Diplomance your way out of this.>You know what? Fuck it. I'm out.
>>41069354>You have a giant flaming rock. Use it. You're pretty confident that Lich is still alive.
>>41069354>Drop the rock, that'll do. Diplomance your way out of this.
>>41069354>Drop the rock, that'll do. Diplomance your way out of this.We need information
>>41069354>Drop the rock, that'll do. Diplomance your way out of this.Make friends with the revenants and the ghosts and have the revenants make friends with the ghosts.
>>41069354>>You have a giant flaming rock. Use it. You're pretty confident that Lich is still alive.
>>41069449>>41069450>>41069558That is consensus!writing ~
>Drop the rock, that'll do. Diplomance your way out of this.You allow the meteor to drop to the ground with a satisfying crunch as it smashes the top half of the revenant that you ripped in two. You do, however, keep up your partial transformation. No point in being stupid. This is hostile ground.The rich king rises to his feet, clothes ripped and bones chipped. He speaks. "It has been a very long time since I saw a Spirit Pair in this world. So why are you here? Some attempt to cleanse this plane once and for all of the Null? Accident?"As he speaks, you watch the ghosts begin to back off, starting with the normal ones. The revenants are too scared to do anything severe, although they are clearly still hostile. One speaks up. "Sire, if I may-" but gets no further as the Lich King cuts him off. "SILENCE! I AM TALKING TO THE SPIRIT PAIR HERE! YOU MAY SPEAK FOR YOUR KIND, BUT I SPEAK FOR THE NULL HERE AND THIS CONVERSATION IS ABOVE YOUR MEASLY EXISTENCE!"Well then.The rich king turns his attention back to you. "So, Spirit Pair, why are you here. For if you intend to fight my, I will face you in my true form, as the ancient battle dictates."What do?>Accident, I wandered in here by mistake. What are the Null?>I came hunting ghosts and you're the leader.>Other (write in)
>>41069735>Other (write in)>Well if you're a good nice Lich I'm here to be friends. If you're a bad mean Lich I'm here to dispense JUSTICE
>>41069735>Accident, I wandered in here by mistake. What are the Null?
>>41069735>I came hunting ghosts and you're the leader."Although WE do like fighting, I prefer to learn more about where I and what a Null is."
Well that's a complete lack of consensus, so i'll wait for a while
>>41069735>Accident, I wandered in here by mistake. What are the Null?I don't think we're 100% ready for this even with our superb power level
Alright, going with >Accident. I wandered in here by mistake. What are the Null?writing~
>Accident, I wandered in here by mistake. What are the Null?You decide to not tell the king of these Revenants that you came here deliberately to hunt him and his kind and instead simply inform him that you wandered in here by mistake."You mean you are simply here by mistake? That cannot be. You mean to say that you know nothing of the battle that took place here three thousand years ago? Between the Null and the Spirits with their pairs? This is a rare occurrence."Now becoming slightly confused, you press him about what Nulls are."You mean... you truly don't know? Ha. Hah! HAH! HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!" He lets out with a truly insane laugh. This is getting creepy. "So, you are an entirely new Pair? Well then, this is my lucky day! One who knows nothing of the conflict means one who has never been to Eris, the City of Light or the Dragon Citadel! You are nothing but a newbie! And perfect food for me!"As he says this, the Lich King rises to his feet and begins to transform. The bones shift into a single solid plate, forming a ridged chintinous armour that coats his entire body. A daemonic, grinning face appears as a mask over his head, as a massive glowing sword appears by his side.The ghosts instantly flee. They've clearly never seen this before. Although you can't blame them. This THING clearly never came from this world.What do?>Ask Tiamat for advise>Engage!>NOPE! OUTTA HERE!>other (write in)
>>41070011>Engage!Not the time to discuss things too much.We'll try to evade his first few attacks to gauge his power, and if we're too outmatched we let Tiamat assume control.
>>41070011>Engage!This guy is making it really tough to be friends with him.
>>41070044>>41070052>>41070055Well that was unilateral. This will probably be the last post for the quest itself tonight. If people want to ask questions a bit more, I will answer with in character knowledge for now. Or if people want to ask general things, go ahead. And if someone is willing to archive this thread, go ahead if you want to. I should be back tomorrow at around 10:30 Australian Western Standard Time, or about the same time I started today.Oh, and remember that acceleration I mentioned a while back? writing ~
>>41070102Archived.Also, will you be using a stat system or some such?
>Engage!You immediately lunge forward, not wanting to give this bastard any time at all to prepare. You tap into your understanding of the gravitic abilities available to Us to lighten your body and make his heavier, the better to get in the first strike that you are after as you spring into the air and rocket towards the former Lich King with your wings. You reach back with your claws and lash out with tremendous force, the thrust of your wings giving extra force to the blow.Suddenly, a massive force shoves you bodily backwards, forcing you off the central dias and onto the floor as you tumble backwards. The force of that blow was immense. As you look up you can clearly see the massive rent in the floor that the...thing's blade just opened up. As the dust clears, you clearly see the creature there, absolutely untouched. "This is not a fight We can win as We are." Tiamat's voice echoes in Your mind. "I suggest-" And then the world exploded.A massive fiery red portal appears in mid air in front of you and the thing visibly back pedals. "YOU!" It screeches. "WHY ARE YOU HERE!" A large red skinned man steps out of the portal and lands on the floor, visibly cracking it. Two horns break his forhead as he cackles once. He turns to face you and you can clearly see the number 666 tattoed onto his chest and forehead. "I'm here because I felt that a Spirit Pair had emerged in this backwater, so I came to investigate. It's good to see that We missed one Lesser last time."The Lesser (apparently) screeches once and then lunges towards the Red man faster than you can easily follow. With a backhanded slap, the Red man strikes the Lesser and the creature is instantly immolated in a pillar of black fire. As he turns around the Red man looks at you directly and grins. "Why hello there, little one. I am Satan, and i'm here to bring you to Eris."
>>41070164I may, but this universe has an extremely relative, extremely fast growing power system. What may seem like good stats now will be pathetic very shortly and they will become pathetic shortly after that. I may generate a stats system once the MC and Tiamat Peak out at their abilities and come into their own.Thanks for coming, as stated I will be answering questions for a bit now.
>>41070284Maybe a tiered stat system?I think I saw it in some other place before.Oh and is Eris THE Eris? Or similar in some sense.
>>41070343Well, there's going to be a bit of a power boost coming up now, that Lesser was a giant scrub. I'll think about a tiered system once the boost occurs.Eris is a place, not the Goddess. The name is... somewhat reflective of the nature of the place.
>>41070367Fucking chaos, shit
BTW, does the archive need to be updated, or will it do that itself?
>>41070102Can the dragon take a humanoid form?
>>41070478The thing is, you ARE that dragon. That's why Tiamat kept saying We. The two of you are one and the same thing. So by existing in a human form, you are doing exactly that: being a dragon and taking a humanoid form. And yes, that can go in the other direction completely. That's just a little out of your reach for now.
>>41070472It updates itself every 2 hours I think.And the board itself has an archive, so even after it drops suptg can still reach it (in case the drop time and the last update don't hit well)
>>41070490Late as hell but next thread when?
>>41073212Ironically, I'm about to go to sleep. In about 11 or 12 hours. You timed well.
