“Was it necessary for you to cut holes through my carefully designed city?” Hestia asks you. “You are lucky that your attack missed any critical infrastructure and did not cause a spatial rupture.”Ok so maybe playing around with strange orbs that mysterious people give you isn’t such a good idea, but it worked out alright.“Why didn’t you just secure the portal yourself?” You ask her.“The demon was content to stay there and murder any others exiting the portal, it was a more efficient use of resources to ignore its actions.”“Has there been any problems from those above us?”“There has been in interesting development, a building has been teleported down. Perhaps to observe what we are doing.” Hestia states. “I will transfer an update of the situation to you now.”Completed Research>Permanent spell enchantments – With a modification of the enchantment process and use of the spell storage crystals Hestia has developed the ability permanently bind spells to objects. >Electromagnetic damper – Electronic systems have been upgraded to greatly increase stealth and resistance to electromagnetic disruption.>Neutron scanning – Hestia has used your joint research into the nature of time, space and gravity to create devices capable of generating and detecting neutrinos. These weakly interacting particles are capable of being used in place of traditional scanning equipment to minimize any chance of detecting ongoing scans. It is also possible to use the neutrinos in communications to help ensure much better security.>Force Fields – A full study of how the force fields are generated has been completed, unfortunately no new information has been revealed, however there has been insights into how to improve on the basic design.(1/2)
(2/2)>Mana Farming – A vast variety of crops have been engineered to grow solely by using mana. The plants growth is no longer limited by conventional understanding and new avenues of research may develop. The humans and imps morale has been raised, new forms of alcohol are able to be produced.>Personal time modifier – By localizing the effects of time dilation to a single being unusual effects have been created, Hestia highly recommends that the use of such devices is greatly restricted as the potential for catastrophic damage is immense.>Meat cloning – The imps have been fairly unhappy with the previous fare available to eat, but now there is a large selection of meat products for consumption. There may be some textural differences with more traditionally obtained meat.Current problems>Hell invasion – Your trip to the realm of Osanas’ patron has apparently caused three months to pass. During this time a large force of demons has occupied the demonic city in the first layer of hell. Invaders through the portal were being slaughtered by some demon you just killed.>Outpost – A strange building has been teleported down to the pit. It is a fair bit away from your city but with the improvements in dampening our electronic systems should prevent them from spying.Hestia has been very busy while you were gone. The city has seamlessly integrated the imps into the population, the learning program has been able to reduce their evil and destructive impulses to levels more or less equal to the goblins. The human researchers seem resigned to the imps living here.> Seal the hell portal> Go back into hell and enforce order> Go visit someone> Deal with another research ring> Check out the outpost> Train> Other Welcome back to Afterlife Quest!Twitter: https://twitter.com/ApophisquestsTGAskfm: http://ask.fm/ApophisTG Pastebins: http://pastebin.com/u/ApophisTGPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Afterlife%20Quest
>>42166766> Go back into hell and enforce order> Other - research jamming the outposts scan abilities, have Hestia prepare a scout/emissary party to investigate the outpost.
>>42166766> Go back into hell and enforce order
>>42166766>Go back into hell and enforce orderOne thing at a timeWe should work on creating a fort for the portal entrance at hell to process hell's citizens and on the merits of what they wanna do give them work visas or set them to work building up hell.If they don't want to work with us then they can go fuck off to some other part of hell. We don't want to endanger our city (specifically our researchers and AI, we can't replace them)Hestia should continue to monitor the outpost and make forcefields a priority for the city.We also need to pick up our Lazarus implant and a Personal time Modifier (PTM).I assume it work with limited charges and can give us something like a haste like spell effect.
>>42166766Oh hay Apophis I had some more ideas for stuff to research, would you like to hear them?
>>42167304Sure, hit me with it while i write for back to hell.
>>42167331#1. One big reaseach goal we should be focusing on is biology, with goblins and how to shape them (make them smarter, stronger, some even more human like so they can reproduce maybe?)#2. We've neglected Symbiosis and creating new parasites and symbiotes for our body. My end goal for researching more into this is creating a venom suite like in the marval comics, or anything else that comes to mind. These symbites have the potential to be far stronger than implants due to our life connection too.#3. Mechs, robots, and other things for our civ. From combat to labor we should focus on building more of these, not only is it useful to have, it increases our army and Hestia's effectiveness.Plus I'd love to have our own mini gundum to roll around in.
>>42167422or you know, A crysis suit.
>>42167446A crysis suit would be later down the line I'd imagine, but the idea I'd have in mind is that it would be a suit that rolls together magic, science, and technology together to create a penultimate piece of full body armor to work in combat, space, and other extreame enviorments and combat situations.It an extream reseach goal that'd come much later down the line, but I think it'd be something fun to work on as a personal project.
“Has there been any sort of contact with the outpost?” You ask Hestia.“Negative, I was waiting for your return, I was worried that you may have abandoned me for what you found of the other side. Direct contact with deified beings has never been studied according to my database.” She explains. “The city has been equipped with gravity distortion and time dilation fields, any attempts at invasion should be nearly impossible.”“Well good work in monitoring them even if nothing is happening but there are a lot of demons waiting here I need to deal with first.” “Fighting demons is boring master, I’m going to go play with Sazglangolor until you are done.” Ayla says as she floats away.“I have prepared a system of countermeasures for the hell portal.” Hestia says as she displays schematics on your laptop. “A series of force fields, turrets, and perhaps the containment system devised to hold Ayla should prevent anything currently known from breaching the portal chamber. Unless another lord appears.”“Alright these look good, and I shouldn’t be gone for long this time. A show of force or diplomacy should clear the demons out.” You say as you enter the portal to hell once more.“Lord Slayer returns, you’ll all pay now invaders!” A lone imp chips from the middle of the crowd outside the building that the portal is contained in. There is a crunch as someone in the crowd snaps the creature’s neck. Again the demons are directing their blood lust at you, one false move could turn this into an all out brawl.> Organize a tournament, let the strongest fight you> Cow them into submission with a show of force> Create a system of bureaucracy for legalized immigration> Other

>>42167679> Organize a tournament, let the strongest fight you> Create a system of bureaucracy for legalized immigrationBoth a short term and a long term solution. Plus, if we keep the tournament as a reoccurring thing it will help distract the demons.
>>42167422With the gravity neutralizer tech you could make gundams if you want to, just a biped design basically. If people want to we can add designing and enchanting stuff to the post game wrap up section with exp spending so we don’t slow down action even more.

>I combined the two offered ideas, hope this worksYou stride out confidently into the crowded streets.“You’ve all come here because the lord is dead and there is a portal out, correct?” You ask the demons, a few murmurs of yes sound through the crowd.“I control a vast city on the other side of the portal and am open to allowing anyone who can behave join me.”The demons seem surprised at this.“However first we will hold a tournament of skill, four divisions – skill, knowledge, magic and live combat. The winners of each section will win free passes to my city. After the tournament there will be a system set up to apply for access to the portal for everyone else.”>47 vs mid dc 47“This seems fair to all, but no doubt there will be a catch. Why don’t we just kill you now.” A guttural growl from a nearby demon.“You die and then I claim lordship, my plan seems much better.” The demon says as the crowd parts to form a ring around the two of you. The demon is confident and seems intent on fighting you. Its body twists and changes one arm into a large blade as it rushes at you.>Kill>Cripple>Humiliate>Other

>>42167819Que us making nonsensical vehicle mounts
“So you knew that I killed the previous lord, yet you still want to try this?” You ask him as you channel your ki into an enveloping aura around you. The evil of hell seems to dim as the demon in front of you slightly glows and his flesh starts searing. The demons surrounding you make more space as your aura fills with holy power, then you start slinging magic to further ruin this demon day. There is an even brighter glow of light and a crackle of electricity as you unleash a fearsome aura, then you sacrifice your very life to bargain for more power. You almost miss a step as your skin fades to a sickly pallor, black veins under your skin pulse with the beat of your heart. Then to top it off you bind the fool who stood forth to oppose you, coils of light and electricity wrap the demon’s arms tightly to its body.>14 max HP lost>8 external mana used, 3/11 remain>double 41 niceThe demon melts into a pile of goo under the force of your oppressive aura.

You reach down into the pool of goo as you let you magic fade and pull out the demon’s soul and pop it into your mouth as the crowd looks on wide eyed.New ability gainedLiving weapon: Rank 1This ability allows you to manifest –A non-technological weapon that you vote for when first using this ability- to use in combat. Its properties are tied to your own abilities and will grow in strength as you do. If it is lost or stolen it will crumble away into nothingness. You can manifest for your weapon for the cost of 1/5 of your total hp. Higher ranks may have additional effects. You feel the power swirl inside you settling on something new. Then you direct the demons to sign up for the tournament, Hestia provides a random number generator to seed the tournament and draws up very large brackets, you have thousands of participants. A swarm of scanning drones come through the portal to organize the event. While they are busy starting the tournament you work out a system with Hestia to provide the demons access to the portal for work visits, joining your growing army, etc. In the end you think that you have a fair system that will prevent future demon invasions.> Watch the finals of the skill tests> Watch the finals of the magic tests> Watch the finals of the knowledge tests> Watch the finals of the death matches> Other>>42169338Thats the picture I had in mind when I drafted the void power spell.I've never played Crysis or Dark Sector either.

So what do we want our summonable weapon to be?I'm all up for a returning projectile or something. Gives us another ranged attack we can just pull up whenever.
>>42169687I think a spear would be appropriate, what with us killing the enemy that landed us here with it.It'd also be a great thrown weapon for ranged attacks.
>>42169687spear guy here, if we go for something like that I'd rather is be the dark sector glaive for appearance.
>>42169687Halberd. Its a spear with an axe on one end, and sometimes a hammer on the back of the axe.That's piercing, slashing, and bludgeoning all in one, at the end of a longass stick to keep distance from an enemy. We have the physical strength to use it unhindered by the weight at the end, too.And hey, halberds can be thrown too technically. We have the skill to pull it off.
All of the things, sure.This one may take longer then.The weapon can be anything sword, bow, spear, kpinga, etcIf you can get consensus now I'll update the sheet, or you can wait until you use the ability.
>>42169769>>42169729meant to link this guy, whatever.
>>42169803Something like this then?I could get behind that.
>>42169810Can we channel Draining touch threw it since it's a part of us?
>>42169803Swords can be thrown, too.Not overhead like you always see, but from the side.Funny how it works, movies get it wrong again.Come to think of it, shitty Skallagrim did a video about it, I think.Hah.
>>42169920Swords are actually a really shit tier weapon tbh
>>42169920I'd like something a bit more unique than a sword personally
>>42169912Yes, it counts as a part of you so your abilities can be channeled through it.
>>42169935For what they are meant to do they are pretty nice. They can be a slashing, stabbing, and bludgeoning tool, depending on how you use it.Compared to other weapons, -any- sword can do all of that save swords built with a specific purpose.A generic broadsword is a general purpose weapon, really.It all depends on who is using it, when, and what for.>>42169949Ah but nothing is unique. I'm not really for having a sword, but you can't suggest something that wouldn't be well known -somewhere-.
>>42170062well, I find swords too commonly used in tropes, which is why I didn't suggest it, I also wanted something to use at range, but also in melee
What about a bow?>>42169963 means long range casting.
>>42170151>tropesWell, a sword is commonly used be commonly it stands for something.Swords are high-profile weapons, they are meant to be used by significant or wealthy people.Swords were meant as a symbol as much as a weapon.And you can effectively throw a sword.That being said, I don't want a sword, but I also don't want a blunt weapon, because our fists do that just fine.
>>42170231well honestly we could say it's a chain sword from 40k and be good.
>>42170284We could make it like Kratos' cleavers.A weapon attached by a chain or cable of some sort.
>>42170231What about the krull glaive?
It feels like we've degraded to /k/.
>>42170284Chain swords, lightsabers or guns would fall into the area of not too much technology sorry.You could try for a similar nasty effect with something akin to a shark tooth club style though.
>>42170332That kind of 'glaive' is shit. They aren't even actual glaives.>>42170284Non-technological.>>42170323Two halberds connected by a chain, fuckin halberd-nunchuks.
>>42170378>suddenly Reggie shows his Maori rootsFuckin' A.Hey guys, I'm pretty sure at higher levels we can have more than one weapon like this.
>>42170400>infinite symbiotic blade works
Does a Channeling Staff work as a viable choice? Would we actually be able to do magic better through it?
>>42170539not sure, but it's basically an extension of ourself.>>42170378we may need a final destination vote to decide on a weapon choice.
You get a good seat and prepare to watch the death matches, the finals will take a while to get to so you get Hestia to provide you with footage of the other finals while you wait.>Skill testThis seems to be more like a demonstration of various skills that don’t quite fit the other categories, a panel of three demon judges vote alongside one of Hestia’s robots. The two finalists are a pale looking guy in a trench coat with a katana and the succubi leader. The emo guy is up first, he bows to the judges and talks about how he wants to win because with a pass out of hell he will eventually be able to visit Japan and then he blabbers on for a while about stuff no one cares about. He says he can’t use his sword to harm another person so his display is on a large rock. He approaches the rock places his hand on his katana and then walks away. The rock crumbles revealing a statue of a giant katana. Damn he is lame, but really fast. His final score is only 24, Hestia gave him 10 points but the demon judges didn’t like that this is the only thing he did during all the match ups. Next the succubus cranks up he lust magic and seduces the judges, including the demon that looks like a slug, you suppose that it is a rather simple but effective strategy. Hestia gives her a 5, and the other judges bring that total up to 27. Ayla isn’t going to like a succubus in the city the female researchers will no doubt agree, but the men will be happy.>Magic testIt turns out that there were surprisingly few competitors in the magical tests. The main competitors seem to be a robed lizard thing with a lantern and a knife and a floating angel ghost. A couple of succubi like demons that are also competing keep far away from them.(1/2)
(2/2)The lizard and ghost compete against each other in the semifinals and while a female demon waits nervously for the finals. The lizard and the ghost use some sort of magic on each other against the rules and they both suffer from some kind of curse and die falling to the ground and vanishing away.The remaining demon wins by default for her mastery of the elements much to her relief.>Knowledge testThe knowledge test had no preliminary rounds, it looks to be just demons furiously typing away at computers. Hestia kicked her learning program into high gear, pulling and cross referencing data the demons input to learn more about the nature of hell while also testing them on numerous topics. There are around a quarter million demons just doing this test alone, Hestia must have been very busy providing the equipment for this insane test. Three quarters of them all fail before level 10k, then half the remainder fail before 12k. Before level 18k only 500 competitors remain. Then they all slowly fall out until the victor finally loses at level 26k. Surprisingly the victor is an imp, when it wins it chirps about how it got smart by not dying for a long time.>Death MatchesThe death matches are dominated by demons that looks just like the one you killed through the portal and a demon without skin. They both savagely slaughter their opponents reducing the other competitors to piles of body parts by claw and sword.The skinless demon proves to be the better fighter cleverly avoiding sword strikes and slowing wearing the other demon down. Eventually it wins through its use of superior tactics, to your surprise if tears the other demon open and pulls out a soul orb and consumes it. Then it points to you.“MORE BLOOD! FIGHT ME WITHOUT TRICKS COWARD!” It shouts.> Fight it> Ignore it> Other

You enter the area with the demon and prepare to fight.It rushes at you its claws rake across your skin but don’t break into it.“Good good, you are not the only one to kill lords you know.” The demon laughs at the ineffectiveness of its own attack.You feel a bit conflicted about using magic right now so you keep it simple and pull your sword out.“I said no tricks human.” The demon growls.>double 34You slash at the demon, who counters by leaping backwards just in the nick of time.

You let your mana flow into your sword as your transform your sword into a glowing lightning and fire storm. “More tricks human? Does death scare you?” The demon asks then he blows a gust of frosty air through his pursed lips.>40 vs dc 45Shards of ice shatter against your force field nearly causing it to fail. Then the demon begins his attack for real, it leaps into the air and drops down on top of you with a shattering overhead strike.

> Normal halberd sneaks inYou stow the sword and focus on the new energy you felt from the soul you ate. You feel it emerge from your body as a halberd which promptly is coated in fire, lightning, and holy glow.“Every new trick you use is another I use.” The demon gloats at you and begins to swell in size becoming twice as large as he once was and his mace follows suit. Then he leaps into the air again to crush you under the weight of his mace.>42 vs dc 35You’ve seen this one coming before you to roll off to one side avoiding the blow. The demon however throws his mace at you in mid air catching you in the chest spreading burning hellfire all over you. You feel weaker as your regeneration repairs the damage done.

>>42173510Fuck no, you're a idiot.You're giving him every advantage to kill us.
Ok time to finish this, you charge a mighty laser in your throat.“I warned you about tricks human.” The demon says and slams his mace into the ground. The ground rumbles and shakes as he vanishes in a cloud of dust.>31 vs dc 35You fire your laser, not where the demon was but where you can sense him being now, under the ground tunneling towards you. The laser slices through the ground nearly catching the demon.“Good trick human, nearly worked this time.” He taunts you.

>>42174204This fight would've been over a long time ago if people would stop fucking around.We're a mage. Let that settle in. We may still be able to use weapons like swords to kill most things but we're specialized in magic. And we're fighting a guy that we know if holding back, and has apparently killed a Hell Lord too.This guy is competent enough to be a threat to our life, and not only do people want to fight him with shitty weapons, they don't want us to use magic on a Demon that's very obviously a close combat master.I can't help but think that person must be trolling the thread trying to activly kill us.

Using the void is a bad idea after all you decide, you force the spell to dissipate.“Nooooo, you need us.” The voices claw at your mind as you will them away with the void.“Think that weakening yourself will help now?

You can feel that the demon has tried to claw its way to a different position to avoid any further attacks. It also feels like its slowing dying from all holy energy being released.

We can pump either life-connection to nine, or regeneration to nine, for all of our exp. My vote is on life-connection, because that very well might have a regenerative effect at that rank or something.
>>42176674You're right. Let's do that.I was just thinking to boost survivability. But that's short term thinking, since we could train a bit and fix that. We should try and kill a few more stronger demons, and possibly even another lord.
>>42176736personally I'm trying to work towards that, in the immediate though we have an out post to deal with at home.
>>42176663Geo-spatial intuitionWhat's the boost from this?
>>42176822It makes you never miss ranged attacks.Lowers dcs behind the scenes as well.>New abilities gainedCold resistance: Rank 4Cold resistance gives you the ability to negate cold based damage. You reduce incoming cold damage by an amount equal to your ability rank.Ice breath: Rank 2By focusing your mana into your lungs you can create a wave of frosty air. This ability consumes mana to use. Higher ranks may have additional effects.>Ability changeHellfire modificationYou can now produce blue hellfire that freezes. It acts the same as normal hellfire other than its freezing effect.
>>42176998Not bad abilitiesI'm gonna vote on upping life connection to nine tho

>tfw the void fucking with usY'all niggas.Told ya.Also, to that guy bitching about "we should be a mage, bluhbluhbluh"Go fuck yourself. Everyone knows being good at melee is preferable to magic, since magic is finite, and just punching a dude to death is an option we -always- have.You a stupid nigga.
>>42181688You're an idiot that wanted to fight without magic, sorry but you got btfo
>>42181688But we're not good at melee, we're only passable or decent at it. We are much stronger when it comes to magic. I can see how we're better suited to melee with things like regen and such other useful skills. We just need to use what we're strongest with. When we're fighting a fuckhuge skinless demon who is very strong, we should have kept our distance and used our most powerful and reliable ability so far, the laser. There are times and situations for melee. This was not one of them. Do you think that melee was the right choice here? I don't, but you're entitled to have your own opinion. Even if it's wrong. So have fun with your incorrect opinion.
>>42182239I posted before the fight, and just got back.So as I was absent for the voting, I was beaten out of nothing.Cheers.>>42182268Opinions cannot be right or wrong, as they are opinions.Melee was not the right choice, but someone condemning the rest of the playerbase for wanting to try a new power and because his initial vote choice was ignored is immature.That being said, I can't wait for someone to shut down our magic and get rid of all our MP, the thrill of that shit going down sounds exquisite.
