As you walk through the city with Evangeline there seems to be more tension between the two of you than before, every time you catch her looking at you she quickly turns away.“Thanks for that,” she decides to say after a while, “I’m sure that humiliating him like that should keep him busy on a ‘quest to restore his honor’ or whatever for a while.”“Is he really so important that killing him was a bad idea?”“Yes,” she laughs, “he is a total creep and looser but somehow he managed to be appointed to control a frontier area far to the west.”“If he is that important, why does he have the time to come down here?” You ask which makes Evangeline sigh.“Sometimes I wish teleport technology was never invented,” she muses. When you arrive at her quarters in the lake side district, Evangeline bars you from entering.“I know what you are thinking right now, but I’m not so sure about things,” she says, “after all I am still your prisoner right?”So you part ways for now and catch up on Hestia’s reports.Completed Research>Time dilation implant – The researchers got goblin volunteers to test the idea of an implant to improve the reflexes of an individual. The result was, not pretty. Slowing time in the brain caused blood to pool in the head resulting in ruptured blood vessels and death. Speeding time caused the brain to suffocate and begin to cannibalize itself to maintain glucose levels. The idea was abandoned into the growing pile of unsafe experiments.(1/3)
(2/3)>Gravitation modification implant – Playing around with time didn’t work very well so the scientists decided to experiment with a series of spatially compressed gravity neutralizers to create a system that would enable the implantee to be weightless. Reports are mixed; while successful a weightless person has no means of propulsion and could easily get stuck in midair. Long term use of the implant shows the possibility of severe weakening of the body in a similar fashion to an extended stay in a microgravity environment.>Asymptotic material study – At what point does one material cease to be itself and becomes something else entirely? Hestia has devoted the time to break the limits of traditional material sciences enabling the creation of materials that display properties that would be described as impossible. The structural integrity of all robots and buildings is vastly increased. This breakthrough has caused Hestia to alter the designs of her power armor to accommodate the new materials.>Bonetooth shield – Great care was taken unraveling the enchantment on this shield. Hestia can now replicate the effect of negating a magical attack entirely. Applying this to the force fields would cause them to instantly fail in the event of even a single mana arrow hitting them so further study is required to maximize the potential of this enchantment. With all the goblin tribe items studied Hestia recommends returning them to the shamans due to their cultural relevance.>Shrieking blaster –Your gun has been sacrificed to Hestia’s pursuit of science. The sonic element, multi-shot and ability to draw mana from the user rather than use ammunition has been unlocked for new weapon designs.>Structural monofilament reinforcement – Along with the new material sciences Hestia has created the researchers have developed an advanced subdermal weave that resists and negates some damage while greatly increasing the protection offered to bones and internal organs.

You wander alone for a bit lost in thought. Hestia has been having trouble understanding the nature of the invitations that you recovered from the revolutionary in hell. So you find a drone to contact her over.“Hestia, could you help me find someone?” You ask the drone, it spins about in place when you talk to it.“Certainly, who are you trying to locate?” Hestia’s voice comes out happily from the drone.“I was thinking about talking with the demon who won the magic contest during the tournament,” you respond which makes the drone stop spinning.“Why would you want to speak with,” Hestia pauses for a nearly imperceptible moment, “her?”“Mastery of demon magic could help us understand how the invitations open portals to hell. I was planning on assisting with research and it seemed like a good place to start.” “I believe I share Ayla’s sentiments that the succubi you allow to enter the city are an unneeded distraction, but you are correct the demon’s assistance would be helpful in this instance.” Hestia agrees and the drone resumes its gentle spinning, “I have the demon report to the research center shortly.”“Alright that works too, I need to fetch Ayla to help too.” “I shall bring her as well then, prepare for teleport,” Hestia states and with a flash you, Ayla and a demon are in Hestia’s monitor room.“Kill them all for glory!” Ayla is shouting as the teleport resolves, “What the? Hestia that was mean I’m practicing.” Ayla is barely dressed in a toga and a crown of laurels. “Yes I see that you are enjoying your preparations for the arena but your presence is currently required,” Hestia states.“Just what are we doing here?” The demon saunters up to you, “Is this a special benefit for all who win your little contests?”(1/2)
(2/2)Ayla pushes herself between you and the succubus. “Yes, master what’s up?”“Is it possible for you to assist in understanding these invitations? We are having trouble discerning how the magic works,” You ask the demon.“Ah, you’re no fun,” she pouts at you, “I’ll help you learn about it later, I’m busy enjoying being free from hell right now, but if you want to study alone,” she trails off and licks her lips.“No that will be fine, just come around here sometime later,” You say much to the disappointment of the demon. “Another time then perhaps,” She says and leaves you.“So what are you studying today master?” Ayla asks, “normally the people here don’t like me coming in much.”“Are you able to create things?” You ask Ayla, “When I do it Hestia has trouble scanning how it works.”“You mean like this?” Ayla makes a sphere of water appear and starts twisting it around into different shapes.“Interesting Ayla, would you please go to room 37-c and continue creating things until you are no longer able to,” Hestia states, “What you did there seems to vastly different from how Reg- the goblin king does it. I might be able to study the process you are using.”“Do I have to?” Ayla asks, “this sounds boring.”“I’m sure if you help Hestia she can arrange for you to have one of those mana filled crystals like you saw at the lake that we used against the giant crab,” You say which makes Ayla immediately start leaving the room. “Well, I have to go help now master see you later!” She calls out while racing out the door.“Good luck with that Hestia, I’m going to study that parasite I created,” You say as you too exit the room. >AwarenessAs you go to where the parasite is kept in containment you notice the twins have spotted you and are headed your way.>Go talk to them>Escape to parasite researching>Other

>>42289401>New souls have to be made somehow?There are seven beings headed your way right now, that is a little concerning. You turn you greet the group of people and find just the twins alone and receive a slap from the both of them.“How could you,” one starts and the other finishes, “just leave us for months.”“We though you went off and died or something,” they continue, “you could have at least come and saw us right when you got back.”“Listen girls, I was taken to another plane of existence. Someone’s version of paradise, I was there for a few hours at most. It wasn’t until I came back that I was informed that I was gone for so long.”“You at least better take responsibility for this,” Katherine says.“We both are pregnant,” Elizabeth tells you.“I know, I can feel life,” You explain to them and motion to Katherine “twins,” and then to Elizabeth “and triplets.”“What? That many?” They are surprised at your comments, “we need to go check on that,” Katherine says and her sister agrees.“I didn’t mean to make you worry with the time distortion I was caught in,” you tell them.“Fine but,” Katherine says and she sister nods in agreement then finishes, “we want to move into your place so you can’t ignore us any longer.”They want to move in you, allow this?>Y>N With that all resolved you continue your mission to research the parasite.“I know it’s not really your fields but would you two like to assist me in studying that parasite I made?”“That gross thing?” Elizabeth asks.“I don’t mind, but you’ll owe us,” Katherine says which Elizabeth nods in agreement to.“So how was it that you made this thing again?” They ask together.“I seem to be able to just make things appear,” you explain.“Then make one that shoots out spikes or something,” Katherine challenges you.(1/2)

(2/2)>48You close your eyes and focus on the idea of the parasite, except rather than generating water jets it condenses chitin spines to use as a weapon. With a pop and a pair of screams from the twins a spiky looking thing appears on the table in front of you, it waves tentacles around trying to grasp onto someone.“That is so creepy!” Elizabeth shouts, “do it again, oh but make it shoot out smaller things at burrow into people like botflies.”“Ugh! That is so gross,” Katherine complains.“You got you idea already, so it’s my turn.” You fell a bit woozy after making the creature but you try again. How does this even work? Should it spit out eggs or something that burst open and scatter larva all over that dig into flesh? Elizabeth is pretty strange if that is the first thing she thought of. More screams accompany the birth of another parasite; it has pulsing green sickly orbs all over its surface.“This should be good enough for now,” You say and take samples of the two new parasites before placing them into containment. You work with the twins for a while analyzing the genetic makeup of the creatures. They are all very similar but you are still missing something current genetic knowledge just can’t be used to understand these creatures. You miss how easy it is working alongside Hestia for these things, but with your data compiled for her hopefully she will find something you missed and prepare to engage in more advanced biological research.>Go do something with the Twins>Check on Ayla>Train to get your mind off of things>Other

>>42289588Its the future you chose.If Ayla has kids they will have very impressive magical abilities.
>>42289501N, we've lain with more than just them, and children are not a means to elevate one's status or position here. If we let them, then soon all the other women will want to, and that just becomes convoluted. It's best for everyone if things stay normal, with a few accommodations due to the pregnancies to make them at least comfortable during it. They are also free to abort if they want to, because childbirth is a scary thing, especially with multiple births.But yeah, we're a ruler, we can't play favorites with anyone.>TrainIm thinking dexterity, speed, and reflexes.

"Now kids, always remember to devour your enemies souls, so you can become strong like your father!"
The twins are not very pleased with your non committal decision to them wanting to move in with you and the way the cameras follow your every move makes you feel like you may have made a mistake. You were not actually sure that you could even have children in the first place since you died. But it’s too late to stop it now, the twins seem happy to be expecting mothers and with how connected to life you are it seems to be a bit off to pressure them into getting abortions.So instead you leave the research center with them and idly chat as you stroll back to your house. They like to just be spending this little time with you, but they do want you to bring Ayla around to visit them more often. Ayla seems to enjoy their company as well so you think about it, they could be a good influence on her.They watch intently as though memorizing which door is yours when you part ways at the spatially compressed houses. It’s all a bit overwhelming now isn’t it, so you head to the training room to train until your mind is clear.You open the door and find the adaptive robot waiting in the room.“Congratulations on learning that you are a father,” Hestia’s voice comes out colder than normal. The door seals behind you and she turns the gravity to 300x.“Hestia, this is quite a bit farther than I’ve pushed to before,” You tell her, collapsing to your knees under the force of gravity.“You will adapt, my improvements to structural design of this robot makes control in such extreme environments simple,” She replies.“Is this supposed to be some sort of lesson?” You ask, “because I’m leaning towards not letting the twins move in, we don’t need special treatment or social maneuvering right now. The city is still growing and everyone is learning to work together.”(1/2)
(2/2)“You misunderstand my intentions,” She says but you can hear the smile in her voice, “I just want you to be fast enough to deal with threats like the Director or the Marquis. Now you just need to dodge my attacks.”>51Hestia puts you through living hell, the adaptive robot’s morphic cannon is working overtime trying to create an attack that can kill you and you are forcing yourself to move through a level of gravity that you never tried before.You spend hours as target practice for Hestia, as she talks about how interesting the combat data he is collecting is.The gravity abruptly returns to normal when you are able to flawlessly avoid all of the attacks that Hestia throws your way.“You see now?” She asks, “You are much faster than before.”“No what I see is that this has been very cathartic for you,” you tell her, “I need some rest after all of this, piloting a tireless robot has some advantages.”“No, I mean it you did well,” Hestia says, “The robot’s reactor was constantly on the verge of overloading.”You wave her off and get some sleep, because when you get up there is still more to get done.> Go check out hell> Visit someone> Speak with prisoners> Do something with those eggs you found> Other

>>42290712A feedback loop, as in, subject A feels good, subject B links with subject A and feels what they feel, likewise, subject A feels what subject B feels.Now, subject B feels good from subject A, subject A feels subject B feeling good and starts to feel better, now subject B is feeling how subject A is feeling better and subject B starts to feel increasing "goodness" as well. Ad infinium. The brain can only handle so much stimuli, this is a fact, eventually our brain would reach that threshold and it would cause damage to our brain, neural overload, it could potentially cause retardation, or dampened ability to feel. You can become a vegetable by "feeling" too much.This would normally be impossible but because it is a LOOP, it doesn't stop on its own.Come on, anon.
>>42290815We have infinite mind, and a bunch of other magic bullshit powers, and Hestia is a literal computer
>>42290851So say that does save US, from it. Which I still won't put money on, because infinite mind doesn't specify that it allows for limitless stimuli, and no, I won't assume it means that, because assuming things is fucking stupid.You could still break Hestia or blow out her processors/CPU by forcing more input than she can reliably process into her.It works pretty much the exact same way for computers, you know.
>>42290815A: We have a mind capable of comprehending infinityB: I'd like to see proof of, outside of drug use, someone becoming a vegetable or being lobotomized by 'feeling' too much.

You can die from shock. Going unconscious is how the body tries to deal with that shit.
You walk around the house you hardly use trying to find a consol of some sort to contact Hestia with. You wind up finding a wing of empty bedrooms, dozens of bathroom, a few libraries, an observatory, a massive kitchen and entertaining area, vast gardens, and a seeming endless number of rooms dedicated to very specific forms entertainment. This is why you said keep it simple, no mansions. You don’t even need all these fountains and statues, statues which you notice are depictions of you, the avatar Hestia designed for herself and even occasionally Ayla. All your secret agent training tells you is that there are countless blind spots and ambush locations.You give up and just use the probes and laptop, so much easier than dealing with this house.“Hestia, did you happen to take those eggs I found before?”“Yes I prepared them for hatching and then put them into stasis, would you like for them to be hatched now?” Hestia asks you.“Ayla thought that they were intelligent, when they hatch if it is not dangerous we should bring her in as well, perhaps she can communicate with whatever it is.”“A sensible plan, transporting you to the hatchery now,” Hestia says, wait when did you get a hatchery?You appear with a flash of light in a small room with four separate chambers holding the eggs. The light intensifies in one of the chambers. “Speeding time to force the egg to hatch,” Hestia states.Cracks form on the surface of the eggs and a hole begins to form. “Time flow returning to normal,” Hestia says.The small creature within pushes its beak free and tears the eggs open to gain freedom.It’s a gryphon. The creature begins to eat the egg shell as soon as it can feebly move.>Try to interact with it>Its safe, get Ayla>Other
>>42291033>>Try to interact with itNudge its beak
>>42291024Actually, no, if you link up with someone it doesn't automatically result in feedback, this is designed around so that it WON'T do that. Because it's BAD.And everything is vulnerable. Everything we have faced has been vulnerable, and stuff has even hurt us, we have also managed to beat Hestia at computing certain things.And stumping them doesn't matter if we're already braindead by then.10/10.

You walk up to the hatching chamber and Hestia opens it for you. You reach in an gently and playfully nudge its beak. It responds by trying to maul you.“It seems to be hostile. Do you wish for it to be euthanized?” Hestia asks you.“No we should just get it some meat or something,” you say, “Can you determine a diet for it, masticated raw meat for now perhaps?”“Based on legend and the creatures that combine to create the creature that seems probable,” Hestia says and a bowl of ground cloned meat appears with a flash.The gryphon squawks when you push the bowl towards it, but smells what is inside and pushes you away from the bowl to claim ownership. It then gorges itself on the raw meat.When it finishes the gryphon looks around to locate you, takes a few shaky steps towards you then ever so slightly inclines its head. Then retreats to the far corner and begins to preen itself.>Pick it up>Try to communicate?>Ayla can do telepathy>Other

You reach towards the baby gryphon which makes it stop preening. It eyes your hand warily and as soon as you are within reach it lashes out at you with beak and talon. It can’t hurt you so you just scoop the little ball of murder up and hold it. Its heart is racing and tense with panic as it continues to try and maul you.“It doesn’t appear to like being touched,” Hestia helpfully comments.It redoubles its efforts to try and murder you but your skin proves to been an impenetrable barrier. You try rocking it back and forth or raising it up and down but the creature doesn’t care about your attempts to soothe it. It just continues to tear at you.“Perhaps it will calm down if I clean it off?” You ask no one in particular.“From its actions that seems doubtful, but here are some supplies,” Hestia says and a flash of light reveals some towels and a bowl of warm water.You spend a few moments cleaning and drying the gryphon off as it continues to try and kill you. Eventually you give up and place the panting creature back down in the hatching chamber. It huffs in indignation at you.>Get the Ayla in here to see this>Get the twins in here to see this>Go do something else now, Hestia can look after the gryphon>Other
>>42292064>OtherLet's check up on the arena in hell.
>>42292064>Get the Ayla in here to see this>Get the twins in here to see this>Get Evangeline in here to see this
>>42292064>>Get the Ayla in here to see this>>Get the twins in here to see thiscall em up, hatch the other eggs
You have Hestia gather Ayla, the twins and why not, Evangeline too. While you wait Hestia speeds time to hatch the other three, which you leave alone this time other than giving them some meat.When they arrive the twins are highly amused by Ayla tormenting Evangeline by turning into a replica of her.“Twin blonde twins reporting master!” Ayla says.“What is this about and can you please make her stop this?” Evangeline asks.“It appears that he eggs I found are gryphons, I thought you all would like to see them as babies. Just be careful they do not like being touched,” you tell them.The girls ooo and aww over the cute baby creatures. When their gushing ends Ayla confronts you.“This one is mad at you,” Ayla points to the once you picked up, “says that even after it graciously accepted your offering to it that you grabbed it.”“You can talk to them?” You ask, “I just picked it up and cleaned it off after it hatched.”“They don’t like that very much,” Ayla explains, “they are tired from hatching, I think they are full of pride, just keep giving them things and it will be forgotten in time. As long as you don’t try anything like trying to have goblins ride them.”“So they are going to be useless other than eating our food?”“And being cute!” Evangeline chimes in.“Not everything can be a soldier in your army master,” Ayla says, “if you treat them good then when they get bigger though they could make good ambassadors though.”Well that gives you something to think about, if they really are that prideful then binding one as a familiar could be a bad idea.“Not to interrupt but you have received a letter,” Hestia says.>Check out the arena in hell>Go visit someone> Speak with prisoners>OtherA white envelope with gold trim appears with a flash. On the front a large gem is depicted. You know who this is from but do you really want to read it?>Y>N

You decide that you might as well read this thing, how bad could it be?Dear Villain,No doubt you are presently quaking in your boots having received a letter from one as beautiful as myself. I have been training in such grueling conditions that I doubt you can imagine even a tenth of. I write to you now to inform you that I shall once again come to rescue my darling Evangeline. Your foul vulgarities will no longer affect me when I complete my training I shall arise into the realm of invincible immortals. With regards,Marquis Gabriel Armstrong - the jewel of the western front!p.s.Please give my love to Evangeline and tell her that we shall be together soon.The girls who crowded around your shoulder burst into laughter from the contents of the letter. You don’t want to deal with this right now, an arena with demons butchering each other sounds much better. So you leave them with the letter and start to go.“Wait, where are you going master?” Ayla asks you.“After that letter, hell,” you say.“Wait you have access to hell? I was hoping the imps I see around the city were just genetic experiments,” Evangeline says.“Oh yea! Hell is tons of fun, there are demons everywhere and they all like to kill each other,” Ayla tells her, “Can we go too master?”The girls look at you expectantly.>Fine take them all along>Hell isn’t the safest, just take Ayla>Go alone>Other
>>42293079>Hell isn’t the safest, just take AylaIt's for the best that they don't visit it right now.
>>42293079>>Fine take them all alongWe have some guards right?
>>42293079>>Fine take them all alongBring some drones and shit to watch them when we inevitably wander off to go do stupid shit
>>42293079>Fine take them all alongWith a regiment of guards and with them wearing protective gear, since hell isnt exactly a stable area.What should we write back with? I was thinking keeping our wording elegant, and writing in flowing calligraphic cursive on our finest paper with living silver mana infused ink just to insult the guy in the most damaging, thought out way possible. Absolutely destroy him emotionally in a proper way.Should probably do rough drafts on regular mediums to try to perfect the insulting contents.
>>42293206We don't insult him, we just one up the fuck out of his handwriting, we copy it exactly, but we make it fancier, with better word choice.He'll have to reply even more fancifully.
>>42293079Ask him what training he thinks shall enable him to defeat you, play his ego to get the details and then insult him with them
Writing a letter, alright – wait you have no means to get it back to him. Curses foiled again.So going with a trip to hell with everyone to see the sights.
>>42293270I love itCan we also send his own letter back, graded with notes
>>42293307We write it anyway, and hand it to him in person.>"Before we fight, read this first, would ya?">>42293327Beautiful.
“Alright then if you wall really want to go to hell that badly,” You say.“YES!” Ayla cheers and morphs back to her normal look, except with that toga and laurel crown again. “The arena is so much fun, they all listen to me there.”You are not sure if that should make you worried or not, so you ignore it and make your way to the hell portal room.“You know we are not going to give up that easily,” Katherine starts and Elizabeth finishes as they both take one of your arms, “You seem dedicated to being the goblin king, so as long as you are there for the children it’s ok.”“You are both are already sharing him?” Evangeline asks, “How does that even work? And you both have children?”“Ohohoho, do you want to find out?” Ayla teases her.“Wait I didn’t say that!” She protests.“You also didn’t say that you didn’t,” Elizabeth joins in on the teasing.“Don’t have, but we are with children,” Katherine clarifies, “five between the two of us.”You try your best to just stay out of it, they can resolve this one all by themselves. “It’s easier to just not have the parts that make babies,” Ayla comments off hand when the teasing stops.“You can do that?” Evangeline asks.“Sure it’s just like taking your heart out,” Ayla pulls a beating heart free from her chest which makes the others go pale.Yup just stay out of it, not your problem at all.Thankfully the portal to hell arrives just in the nick of time.“Here we are, the portal to hell,” You show the ladies.“Looks like a mirror,” the twins comment.“It utilizes an enchantment that was recovered from a pair of mirrors,” Hestia chimes in, “I have prepared a group of drones to act as protection and guides while you are in hell, please do not wander far from them.”(1/2)
(2/2)You exit the portal in an opulent palace, Hestia must have moved the portal to the central castle at the peak of the outcropping the demonic city is built onto. The palace and the city have been restyled into an elaborate gothic style, the height of the formidable architecture combined with the twisted demonic statues make the city feel a bit oppressively awe inspiring. While Ayla playfully floats around making faces at statues the others stick close to you wide eyed as they take it all in. A few imps here and there chirp lord slayer when you pass and demons for the most part give you a wide berth.As you draw closer to the colosseum you see that buildings have also been repurposed into all manner of things. A few enterprising demons have set up shops or even restaurants where they transform the free rations Hestia’s farms provide into something more palatable for others. Imps and succubi seem to be the majority of the workers and shopkeepers. What is being sold is no doubt inferior to anything Hestia can make but it could be interesting to take a look at some of the shops when you finish in the arena.The arena dominates the area where the colosseum sits and inside you see that a large amount of water has been used to create space for aquatic battles as well. The colosseum is adorned with banners depicting the Bonetooth tribe’s emblem, the jagged goblin fang, and statues of yourself and Ayla. Hestia certainly managed to achieve a sense of grandeur with the whole thing.>Just sit and watch the fights>Fight in the arena your self>Other
>>42294032>Just sit and watch the fights
>>42294032>>Just sit and watch the fightsPossible recruits?Or at the very least, some entertainment.
>>42294032>Just sit and watch the fightsIf anyone calls us out, then we fight.
>>42294131>Abandoning your charges in HellBruh, no.
>>42294188>not showing off for the girlsI'm 90% certain Ayla could kill any of these demons
>>42294531Yes.But can she do it before the demons kill one of the girls?Why take stupid risks?Don't be that way. We won't find a good fight down here anyway, I bet. Next level of Hell, sure, but this one I think they're all tapped out.
“Yes, it is time for the arena,”Ayla ushers you all into the best seating area, “I’m the best at this don’t worry.”From the raised front row seating you can see the arena begin to fill up with demons. They seem to be moving around with ease Hestia’s drones float about maintaining order. When the arena fills Ayla steps out to the front of your seating area. She grows to ten times her normal size catching the attention of the crowd.“Demons of hell!” Her voice booms throughout the area like thunder, “we have gathered once more to see who is the strongest!”“Death awaits the weak!” She calls out to the cheering crowd and the raises her hands up bringing total silence to the colosseum.She allows the moment of peace to continue for a few moments.Her arms drop as she yells, “Now let the games begin!” The crowd erupts in cheers once more.Ayla shrinks back down to her normal size and floats back over to you while giggling. “See its fun here,” She tells you.The fights being slow with goblins or imps fighting each other or animals, mostly lizards and tigers, but a few crabs and spiders show up on occasion. You spend the next few hours chatting with Ayla, Elizabeth, Katherine and Evangeline getting to know everyone better as you watch increasingly stronger demons do battle. Hestia’s drones come by now and then to drop off refreshments, but her attention seems to be elsewhere.In the end there is the fight everyone has been waiting for a headless demon with four arms is fighting a strange looking female demon with a long neck. The match up seems fairly well matched, they exchange blows and fight evenly for the most part but you can tell that the winner is going to be:>Four armed demon>Long neck demonWhen the fight concludes it will bring the end of the events at the arena today, so afterwards you:>Check out the shops>Speak with the winner of the last fight>Escort the ladies back through the portal>Go to the second level of hell>Other
>>42294531You mean like all the other fights where we "showed off" but actually kinda got our shit kicked in?
>>42294609>>Long neck demon>Check out the shops>Escort the ladies back through the portal>Go to the second level of hell
>>42294609>Four armed demon>Check out the shops>Escort the ladies back through the portal>Go to the second level of hel
>>42294609>>Four armed demonMotherfucker has no head and four arms.NO HEAD. The fuck, mang.>Check out the shops>Escort the ladies back through the portalIf the winner wants to talk they can find us afterwards in a store, or something.
>>42294609>Long neck demon>Check out the shops>Escort the ladies back through the portal>Go to the second level of hel
>>42294609>Long neck demon>Speak with the winner of the last fight>Check out the shops
The demons continue their battle for a while, but the demon with the long neck just seems to be a little too fast, her claws tear the four armed demon to pieces. You think about stopping to speak with the winner but with your guests here that could be a bad idea.“Why don’t we go look at the shops before heading back home?” You ask the girls, the bunch of happy looking faces you see has you a bit worried. What demons even use for money?You wander through the market looking for interesting things.“Look master candy!” Ayla points out a small chocolate shop, but does she really need a sugar rush?“The written form of spells is very rare, demons may have some though,” Evangeline wants to go to a book store.“Demon fashion could be interesting,” Katherine and Elizabeth agree when they find a clothing shop.>Candy shop>Book store>Clothing shop>Go to all of them>Other
We should max out Regen, see if it upgrades or just gives us a really nifty trick.
>>42295013>>Go to all of them
>>42295013>Go to all of themDon't split the party!
>>42295013>Go to all of them
Well since they were offered up to you in what should be fasted to slowest to get through you’ll just bite the bullet and go to all three places. The candy shop is small but has a surprisingly large offering of candies, some things like chocolate covered severed fingers are a bit off putting to your group but you find a collection of chocolate and assorted other candy that the girls are happy with. “Perhaps you would be interested in getting a little extra sugar in the back room,” the succubus clerk tries to tempt you but gives it up under the combined might of four death glares.>20 gold lost>Assorted candy gainedAt least you’ve determined that the demons are perfectly happy to accept gold coins as payment. So you head over to the small bookstore to search for magic books. This time one of Hestia’s drones enter the shop with you, it scans over all the books searching for magic and finds one. It is title is a string of expletives in Latin and claims to contain the magical ability to make magic not kill your enemies, a must for powerful mages who wish to torture successfully. Ayla finds a picture book depicting demonic creatures, the twins each pick out books of poetry and Evangeline chooses a large tome called the history of the arcane.>240 gold lost>Assorted books and a magic ability gained(1/2)
(2/2)You are nearly bled dry, you have just under 180 gold left, and you face the clothing store now. Ayla grabs piles of very sheer and skimpy clothes for everyone. You find the twins conspiring about something in a dark corner that looks suspiciously like it is displaying fetish gear. Evangeline finds a pair of thigh highs and elbow gloves to match a short but elegant blood red dress. You total comes to 300 gold, almost twice what you have left to spend. You may regenerate but you can be sure that there is no way you can make it out alive if you have anyone put what they choose back. So you dig into your pouch and hope for a scavenging miracle. You manage to draw nearly a thousand gold from your pouch and quickly pay for the items and leave before they spend the rest of your money.>300 gold lost>Assorted clothing acquiredSomehow you’ve survived shopping and made a profit from it, so you walk the girls back to the portal. After seeing Elizabeth, Katherine and Evangeline safely back with your purchases, you walk with Ayla to the point where the next level of hell can be accessed.“It has been a while since we were here, but it’s time to enter the second level of hell,” you tell Ayla.“Are you ready master?” She grabs your hands and her eyes glow.“Yes, the two of us can handle whatever is there,” you tell her.Ayla’s power builds and she tears a portal through reality to the next level of hell.> [ End ]That is the end for now.

>>42295803> manage to draw nearly a thousand gold from your pouchScavenging best skill, we should max it
>>42295803Scavenging to 8 Draining touch to 4Is that ok?
>>42295845I think for now we should focus on upping regen to max. Might give us a free revive per thread like the lizard has from the lazarus nanites.
>>42295990Our vitalizing panacea implant currently does that.
>>42295803Living weapon 5Draining Touch 5
>>42296047It only does that so long as we down one of the potions every thread.Let's say we get stranded for multiple threads, might be better to do it naturallyand it might stack.
>>42296169It is not a potion, due you directly helping with the research you have the ability to replicate the lizard's implant now. People voted for you to have it too.
>>42296169>>42296047Wait, shit, I didn't notice it was an implant.Thought it was a tasty beverage the entire time, holy shit.Still, might stack.
>>42296169Straight from the pastebinVitalizing regenerating panaceaThis is an advanced medical nanite serum engineered to restore the health of whoever is injected with it. The serum recovers 1/2 max hp per turn and cures all non-magical status effects. Also allows for total regeneration from death once per thread.Nanites! No mention of it being temporary.
>>42296368If you don't vote right you look like a same fag anon.
>>42296392>vote rightBecause there are rules against showing support.Fuck, anon, just be honest, you don't like that option, so you call everything a samefag to try to stop it.
>>42296219Plus higher levels might cure magical effects. Who knows?
>>42296448like that, yes, because it looks like you're voting up your own post.
All the girls seem to like each other. We might get away with having a harem. Totally not what we were aiming for when we started, but still kinda cool.
>>42296506>like that, yes, because it looks like you're voting up your own post.You shitting me?Voting >thisand >supportingand all the bullshit in between hasn't been around for fucking ages.I mean, shit, we have fucking gifs for it.Fuck off.
>>42296529Remember, the more people you fuck, the crazier Hestia gets. And she runs virtually the entire city, now.That being said, I don't really give a fuck, who am I kidding?
>>42296568>Bullying Hestia into submission with our benisThe powers of D can save all of goblin-kind
>>42296529I was expecting more of a stringing them all along sad end because secret agent, but for some reason people keep voting for to spend time with everyone. The two most opposed to it developing that way are Hestia and Evangeline if you are wondering.If anyone cares the arena champion will still be around for a while, each time a new one shows up there will be a chance to talk to / recruit them.
>>42296544I think we have a misunderstanding, I'm talking about you not linking Apophis post in your vote.I don't care if all you write is >Thisor Supporting.
>>42296613will hestia change her mind if we get her a body
>>42296619You don't have to.
>>42296673She would be more open to things if the women you chose were smart, she may not act like it often but Ayla is smarter than the researchers you’ve recruited. I don’t know if anyone noticed but Hestia and Ayla have gained a bit of respect for each other. Their social link started at -1 and has been slowly going up.
>>42296613Yeah those two do seem the most opposed.Not sure of Hestia approves of us being with anyone though. And since he can't have a physical relationship with a computer, he's going to look for it elsewhere.
>>42296760It was to be assumed when Hestia started building statues of Ayla
>>42295938This seems to be the choice, updated.4 exp left over.
>>42296966ResearchImplant that can increase mana regeneration and capacitySybiote that'll increase physical abilitiesResearch: Moral and recruitement programs on a populace
>>42297065We need to build Hestia a body that can regenerate.And that Reggie can fuck.Regen is pretty fucking OP, really.
>>42297065Recharging enchantments and a sample of a non-weapon parasite would help pave the way for the first two.Moral and recruitment? I’m not sure what you want with that, architectural psychology and increase the number of goblin squads?
>>42297065>>42297320I think this guy was thinking more along the lines of a demon army.
>>42297997Hestia’s learning program will teach them in time then, or you can shortcut your way to ensure their obedience with the hell deed. Tribe info updated with demon city information.
>>42298525I mean programs/advertisments/radio waves/ ect to install loyalty and patriotism through psychology and sumliminal messaging in a populace like demons.We could probably have Hestia stick it into our learning programs.
Thanks for the thread, Apophis.
