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/LEEi5A3uArchive http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psychic%20Rebel%20QuestThread 28 http://pastebin.com/s3NR7dqHSetting 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 stare down at your midsection as though you can physically see through your clothes, your very flesh, looking at the tiny lives growing within you.The six lives within you are tiny, each smaller than a pea, burrowing into your flesh to build their own personal life-support systems.You are starkly aware of the plasma pistol in your hands – you were just checking it prior to your mission. After all, you could be seeing some tough fighting if the fae you are about to confront prove too difficult to control. You take a deep breath, and with trembling hands, load and unload the plasma pistols powercell, you check that the trigger pulls smoothly, that there are no flaws or faults in any part of your gun. You place it back into its extradimensional space and draw forth another gun, checking them each in turn. Eventually your hands stop shaking, though your thoughts are still racing.How did this happen? Well obviously the time Rainya wanted to experiment with her new shapechanging powers and- you blush at the memory.But you'd been controlling your own hormone cycle to make such a thing impossible, or so your thought. Perhaps your divine aspects overrode even your powers.
You pull your mind away from such musings, a problem for the future, right now you need to decide what to do. You consider postponing your mission, but for how long? The full nine months? Longer? no. You recall hearing somewhere that in the early stages chemicals and poisons are a concern, but much less so physical exertion. Well, with your sheer toughness and control over your own biology your babies are not at any great risk. You can do what you need to do, for now at least. What happens after, well, you can work something out, your realm should be safe enough, and Rainya can easily spare a few bodies to-Rainya!Rainya doesn't know...and telling her right before going into a very dangerous situation could distract her, make her lose focus, maybe even get her killed. As remote a possibility as that sounds, with her able to leave a body back here, fighting fae and chaos mages mean strange things can happen, you'll all need your wits about you if things do not go as planned.Of course, delaying telling her could really upset her too. Perhaps a compromise – telling her as soon as the danger is past?Or maybe Rainya is stronger than you know, and can carry this knowledge without it compromising her ability to fight.What do you do?>Tell her now (increases Family)>Tell her as soon as the danger is over (increases Family)>Don't tell her yet>Other (?)There will be a vote about protecting your kids later
>>44128244>Tell her now (increases Family)
[Meta]There has been some interesting discussion on Askfm.http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQM/answer/133608123436and http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQM/answer/133618205228Also some emails from the anon in question, which I'll not repost – though they are free to post them – and my replies if they wish.I would like to hear players views on how Aspects (and Gifts) should be handled in future. Not just picking new ones but increasing them, using them and how side-effects are handled.[End Meta]
>>44128244>>Don't tell her yet
>>44128261I'm not seeing the first anons problem, hopw its currently is perfectly fine. We opnly got 3 choices and when all three don't appeal to our idea of progressing Shee, we just advance a old one. Not seeing a reason why we HAVE to pick a new one just because one guy wants his favorite to win so badly.
>>44128244>Tell her as soon as the danger is over (increases Family)Aspect votes are good as they are. Its not like we have to always pick a new one if we don't like the selection.
>>44128244>Tell her as soon as the danger is over (increases Family)
>>44128244>Don't tell her yet
>>44128261>>44128282Gotta agree with this anon, looks to me like its literally just that one guy with a agenda who tries to change things because he's salty people didn't like that Aspect he liked based on his hyped up idea he got from some other quest.Nevermind that I'm pretty sure Domination would have won that vote if not for the advancing option but thats besides the point I guess.
>>44128272>>44128330I don't understand why you wouldn't want to tell her?
>>44128342The really stupid part is that Impossibility is what ACTUALLY reflects the Flatline MCs willpower, so he's really just basing it on the name without spending a single thought on the actual themes and mechanics involved.
>>44128406Because of what? I don't think Shee's likely to have a tragic miscarriage.
>>44128406Too soon? Why? What difference does it make?
Tell her once the danger is over, writing.
>>44128244>>Tell her now (increases Family)
>>44128282It was kind of annoying that most of the arguments around aspects were about the extremely minor mechanical benefits they grant passively.>>44128342I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have, unless literally everyone that voted for Advancement changed to Domination, and that's assuming the one vote for Domination didn't also vote Advancement.>>44128407I'm not entirely sure why you're assuming that the pastebin anon on AskFM and the anon that talked about Flatline are the same.
>>44128423>>44128424We need to buy baby stuff before breaking the news.
I just read that pastebin and I can't even get into it without being bothered by how the writer assumes to speak for the other players.Just starting with>People want more aspects but they think the ones we're being offered all suckThats completly wrong though, I can't remember anyone saying all the offered Aspects sucked. Some did, sure enough some do. As far as I could see most just felt like we needed to advance our current ones more and the others just didn't fit into what they wanted Shee to be.>Even if we did get that awful description, I know the aspect is better than that in practiceBased on fucking what? Unless you're AA you have absolutely no fucking idea how good it is in practice. All you got is your wishful thinking on how good you 'want' it to be.>Before now I don't think a lot of players even realized that writeins can boost aspectsThios makes me think the writer is actually a newfag who just got into the quest to be honest because that write-ins can boost Aspects and Favour is pretty damn obvious and how we got 3/5 or so of our Mirror Favour.>More people wanted a new aspect but they were counted separately by aspect and each individually compared to all voters who wanted Impossibility/Corruption/Family. If done as group vs group (old vs new), new won last vote. Done as a 6 way free for all, Unstoppable won.Did it occur to him that maybe people would have voted for other things if things would have been structured different so his assumption on Unstoppable would have won is kinda complete bullshit?>If you want people to go for aspects, I'd ask you to do something about the descriptions of them we get.We didn't have a problem witht he descriptions until now so, I don't understand why he thinks there is one now all of a sudden just because people apaprently didnt like the one he liked (which I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume he voted for Unstoppable but don't quote me on that).
>>44128480>I'm not entirely sure why you're assuming that the pastebin anon on AskFM and the anon that talked about Flatline are the same.Because its extremly fucking obvious.
>>44128480>I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have, unless literally everyone that voted for Advancement changed to Domination, and that's assuming the one vote for Domination didn't also vote Advancement.Actually I only voted for Unstoppable because I wanted anything but advancement, if Domination would have had achance I would have been onboard for that.>>44128480>I'm not entirely sure why you're assuming that the pastebin anon on AskFM and the anon that talked about Flatline are the same.I'm not really invested in this argument, but yeah the guy who was nuclear assmad about others not liking Unstopabble brought it up first.
>>44128480They were about minor technical stuff because thats what the argument eas about.
>>44128480>It was kind of annoying that most of the arguments around aspects were about the extremely minor mechanical benefits they grant passively.Because thats what we got when it comes to discussing what they actually do, thats what the larger implications ultimately come from.There is more to them than that, of course, but thats just saying "Aspects do good things" and yeah, all of them do, whats the point?>I'm pretty sure it wouldn't haveYou are probably wrong to be honest, anons have REALLY liked the mindrape sofar.>>44128480>I'm not entirely sure why you're assuming that the pastebin anon on AskFM and the anon that talked about Flatline are the same.I'm pretty sure I remember the guy arguing last thread to have brought it up as argument so I assume thats where the impression comes from.Seriously if you try to do the "I'm totally not that anon" thing, you ought to be more careful what you say.
>>44128261I just got to the part of your answer about expanding the description. I don't like it.I didn't even like it when the mechanical benefits where included at all, I prefer Aspect descriptions to be pure flavour.
You want to tell Rainya – and your friends as soon as possible, but this is the worst possible time – right before you are due to go into a deadly situation.You resolve to tell Rainya as soon as the danger is over and not a moment later. She'll probably be mad that you didn't tell her sooner, but in time she'll see sense. You finish checking your equipment, assure Rainya that her armour fits her just fine when she returns, and then you head downstairs to iron out the details of your plan with your friends.From the concerned looks Rainya is giving you, she knows something is bothering you, but she doesn't ask, maybe she just thinks its nerves about what is coming.Once you are all assembled you begin “We're going to take back the psychic research facility” you say, taking a deep breath “but if we just kill the fae or drive them out, we'll be facing an army, so instead I'll simply take control of the fae nobles running the place. We'll need to confront the most senior ones first and we;ll need to take them all at once – to avoid any of them getting away and raising the alarm, after that we can simply have them summon the junior fae one at a time and I'll deal with them.” Kaelyn scowls but doesn't say anything.“So how's this going to work?” asks Dev “we just jump in there and you hit them all at once with your mental hammer?”Lirael smirks, you smile briefly and shake your head “no” you say “I fully expect the senior fae to have defences against mind-control and even once I've overcome those they are each very powerful magically, and strong willed, we'll need to subdue them first, and then I'll work on them one at a time.”“They won't just let you though!” objects Kaelyn “once they see what you're doing, they'll fight.”“Will they though?” you ask her, looking her dead in the eye “will the average fae noble accept someone else being in control? Or do they hold their personal freedom so dear they'll fight for it?”
Why is this even a argument? Unstoppable was shit anyway.>You get better while you keep fucking up!How is that useful? Shee barely ever even needs a second try, and if something fails once.... why not do something different? Shee is extrmly good at adapting to things and all her powersets are geared toiwards not NEEDING a second try. Its literally a Aspect completly working against everything else she does.
Kae glares at you, then looks away, saying softly “less powerful nobles are used to more powerful ones mistreating them, they'll do whatever it takes to stay alive.”You wish you could tell her much you hate this, but that its necessary. Maybe afterwards.“One of the beastmen psychics told me that they most senior fae meet twice daily about the running of the facility” you say “the next meeting is soon. We teleport into the facility, sneak to their meeting room and confront them”.“What about guards?” asks Lirael “None near the meeting room” you say “it's deep enough in the facility that they don't post them, but if we make too much noise then some will come running. Fortunately they meet in one of the facilities war rooms – which has a very thick door and walls, as long as we don't blow the whole place up, we should be fine.”“And we're going in guns blazing?” asks Dev “what if we kill them.”“Try not to” you say “if it comes to it I'd rather they die than any of you, but we want to hurt them enough to make them surrender, but not kill them.”You look around “well?”Dev nods “ok” he says, clad in his heavy armour “let's go.”“I'm in” says Rainya, a determined look on her face.“I'm with you sis!” pipes up Lirael. You all look at Kaelyn.“For the record” she says “I don't like this, but I can't think of a better idea, let's just get it done.”“Alright” you say “I'm going to tell Ms Carter and Randolph what's happening, I won't be long.” You head out of the room, your mind still occupied by your latest discovery. What to do about them?>Nothing, trust in your own toughness (start mission)>Do something to protect them (what?)15 minute vote to allow ideas
>>44128342>>44128282Pally didn't even want to do old aspect boosting as an option in the first place, but people asked about it. I don't know how many others there were that emailed him or something but I know I asked about it myself. I voted to boost Impossibility during the last vote but I'd have been fine with any of the options except for Family getting boosted, really. Might not have voted for it if I'd realized we could get aspect improvement but that's a whole 'nother thing. It's kind of funny how people think that I'm just salty over Unstoppable not winning. I wouldn't have been opposed to it winning but it was actually my second least favorite behind Family. The one I thought was best was Domination and the one I thought was most fitting was Retribution, but Impossibility being higher would help with some neat stuff so that's what I picked.That said, I still think that there's a problem with the votes and I don't need to have some agenda to feel that way. The descriptions provided with new aspects are misrepresentative and it biases things towards boosting old aspects instead of ever picking a new one. If people genuinely think all the options do not fit and want to not vote for them while then that's fine. I just like informed voters better than uninformed voters. If Pally does choose to implement some changes I'm sure he'll come up with something better than anything I've suggested.Kinda regret saying anything in the first place now.
>>44128838Its a argument because one guy was hyped for it, tried to samefag and it didn't work so got butthurt at everyone. Considering how flimsy a fit to Shee itwas to begin with its not gonna show up again anyway so who cares.
>>44128841>Nothing, trust in your own toughness (start mission)
>>44128841>Do something to protect them (what?)Some different options.>Use Impossibility to force acquisition of Split Self, leave the pregnant duplicate in the realm while we have the baby-free body go fight (+Impossibility)>Turn Shee's womb into some kind of pocket dimension thing based off of Dimensional Arsenal (+Family)>Blast Fecundity of the Ocean with Corruption until Shee develops some planty mutations, then plant the babies like seeds in the realm and let them grow there. (+Corruption?)
>>44128841>Do something to protect them (what?)Make them into little seeds and plant them in Randolphs part of the realm
>>44128917You make some preatty heavy assumptions about how easy improving high ranked aspects is.
>>44128917>>44128926>turn them into seeds and plant themThat's fucked up, yo.
>>44128917I'd support the second, maybe the first if we had the XP for it.Third is a complete shit.
>>44128941Thats the point I imagine, supported!>>44128841>>44128926
>>44128940Both the impossibility and family options have already been confirmed by pally. I'd have put a question mark by them like the corruption option if they hadn't.Side note, unlocking a Prestige psychic power with Impossibility will also boost it up a rank.
>>44128841>Use Impossibility to force acquisition of Split Self, leave the pregnant duplicate in the realm while we have the baby-free body go fight (+Impossibility)>Turn Shee's womb into some kind of pocket dimension thing based off of Dimensional Arsenal (+Family)>>44128964It's not fucked up in an interesting way, it's fucked up in a "this is extremely dull and was hinted at being dangerous to the kids" way.
>>44128851>The descriptions provided with new aspects are misrepresentative and it biases things towards boosting old aspects instead of ever picking a new one.They aren't and they don't.
Oh hey the rest of the prestige powers got added to the rules paste!
>>44128841>Nothing, trust in your own toughness (start mission)or just not that plant baby bullshit
>>44128841>Turn Shee's womb into some kind of pocket dimension thing based off of Dimensional Arsenal (+Family)
>>44128841> Plant babiesIf we can't do that right now> Nothing
>>44128841>>Use Impossibility to force acquisition of Split Self, leave the pregnant duplicate in the realm while we have the baby-free body go fight (+Impossibility)>>Turn Shee's womb into some kind of pocket dimension thing based off of Dimensional Arsenal (+Family)
>>44128960>maybe the first if we had the XP for it.I think we can afford it right now but I'm not sure if we want to.>Third is a complete shit.Yeah I don't like the third much either but I figured I'd include it for the sake of rounding out the aspect options. Maybe we can make some kind of robo-incubator thing with Corruption and Artifice?
ok, change to the vote.in 5 minutes I will call a 5 minute, non-FD vote similar to the way powers vote. It will have a yes/no option of doing something, and will have a second category about what you do, based upon the suggestions offered
>>44128983>and was hinted at being dangerous to the kidsIt was actually never hinted anything like thjat, stop spreading misinformation just because you don't like shit.
>>44129052Why the change? And can you confirm those extremly easy Aspect rank ups actually work?Because all of them seem far more trivial (and in case of the Dimensional Arsenal one unrelated to the actual Aspect) than what it usually takes.
>>44129052Can you add a suggestion about implanting them into Rainya or creating tiny nanomachine nannies taking care of them in our body?
>>44129093>Why the change?For clarity, many votes are conditionakl or voting for multiple outcomes>And can you confirm those extremly easy Aspect rank ups actually work?They do, this will be made explicit in the vote
>>44129050If the options are plant babies or getting Split Self, I'd front the XP cost for you.>>44129063Pally was unsure, which is essentially the same thing as danger.A more realistic assumption, it would be somewhat boring because all the kids would wind up being plant-based and overlap with Randolph instead of having a variety of influences.
>>44129122That doesn't actually answer the question, creating a pocket dimension has nothing to do with family.
>>44129142>because all the kids would wind up being plant-basedYou're assuming we would leave them there, which is completly wrong.
>>44129146It's an extradimensional womb which has no purpose beyond protecting Shee's unborn children. Seems pretty Family to me.
Please do not quote this post. Post only your votes, nothing else.5 minute vote.Will Shee do something to protect her babies?>Y/NAnd what will it be? (pick 1 option only)>Split Self (increases Impossibility)>Dimensional Womb (increases Family)>Plant/seed babies (increases Corruption)>Attempt to implant into Rainya (assuming she agrees)Nanomachines nannies option not allowed at this time (Artifice too low)
>>44129142>being plant-based and overlap with Randolph instead of having a variety of influences.More likely they would all have a variety of influences, one of which would be plant based...which would be a problem how?>>44129192>Y>Attempt to implant into Rainya (assuming she agrees)

closing and counting
>>44129192I thought it was like a power vote, not FD.
>>44129298That "new condition" has been there for the last few power votes.
>>44129192>Please do not quote this post. Post only your votes, nothing else.>5 minute vote.Ypu really have to start making your mind up about how you wanted this vote Pally, I don't think most people bothered reading all of this after you said its like every power vote.
>>44129298>>44129311That's how they've been for the last couple months, people just have been ignoring it.
>>44129315No it hasn't, power votes have never been "don't quote this post". Nor "only post your vote".
>>44129315>>44129323Just showing the example of the Ichor power voteSo, which Gift do you shape the Ichors favour into?>Corpse Eater 4>Oceanic Reality 5>Swim the Star Ocean 5 minute voteNo such conditions.It was literally only the last thread that did that.
>>44129315Last few months would be last thread, pretty sure it was alsoonly the Baalzamon power.
>>44129366>>44129377>>44129338You know what the solution is?READ THE POST BEFORE VOTING IF YOU WANT TO MATTERIt's *literally* a trap for idiots that don't read before voting. You aren't going to get any sympathy for being stupid.
>>44129397Nah fuck off.I'm not gonna not complain about something retarded and boring winning just because Pally felt like changing the voting rules for no particular reason.
>>44129397No reason to read it when it should be like any other. If he hadn't said like other power votes, I would have bothered reading it.
>>44129427There have been previous power votes that used this, and ones that haven't. Being like a power vote is exactly why you should've read it.But you didn't.Tough shit.
>>44129192>Nanomachines nannies option not allowed at this time (Artifice too low)Why can we vote for something that requires new XP AND a succesfull roll we haven't made yet, but not for something that only requires new XP?
Looks like the powergaming fags forced their shit in somehow anyway. I hope the roll fails.
>>44129454>>44129192Thats actually a good question, we got XP for easily 3 more ranks of artifice? So why can't we do that? I'd love nano caretakers.
>>44128995I was surprised by Chaoscraft. It's actually decent.
>>44129486As long as it isn't plant babies. That shit's retarded.
>>44129497You must be new here, some anons have always been extremly resentful of the power creep in Pallys quest, the conjuring of gifts from nowhere as newest escalation unsurprisingly didn't make them very happy.
>>44129486>>44129497Its a power balance argument again, don't even start.
>>44129548>As long as it isn't plant babies. That shit's retarded.Making a second body to carry babies is even more retarded, and more importantly boring. And Shee shouldn't ever do boring.
>>44129549I could maybe get that in PoJ or Egwin but isn't the apotheosis arena a central part of this one? Bumping an aspect like this is something like getting 0.001% closer to being like one of the Five and that's if we're generous.
>>44129596I consider plant babies to be more boring, because it's literally burying drama and cute scenes.
>>44129600>I could maybe get that in PoJ or Egwin but isn't the apotheosis arena a central part of this one?Actually its less of a problem in PoJ which was meant to be about the overpowered godling.But PRQ, believe it or not, was originally supposed to be more about gritty necessary choices and being desperate for power.
>>44129600Its actually more of a problem here because the story works less if Shee doesn't need favour anymore, which is the case when she can just create gifts whenever she wants.
I have tally'd the votes up as followsPosts that linked mineYes 4/No 4Plant/seed babies 5Rainya 2Posts that did not link to mine (as requested)Yes 4/No 1Split Self 2Dimensional Womb 2Rainya 1CombinedYes 8/No 5Plant/seed babies 5Split Self 2Dimensional Womb 2Rainya 3But please check my count(assuming my count is correct) using linked votes or not changes the outcome.I accept that I was not explicit in saying that linked votes do not count.I ask for votes to link to be counted (or to not link to be counted) as a way to stop anons repeating their votes with minor alterations. I also don't use the same condition every single vote, again, my fault.With that in mind I plan on calling another vote with only 3 options:A plant/seed babies B dimensional wombC split selfvote to be called in 5 minutes, vote to last 5 minutesvotes that link my post will not countvotes that contain anything other than the letter will not countUse standard letter, not greentextMy apologies for slowing the quest down due to ambiguous voting rules.
>>44129672Sorry for delaying things, but could we get a answer on the Nano caretakers question? If we can spend Xp on splot self (and do the roll first), why not for Artifice? Not enough XP?
>>44129672There were 3 split self votes unlinked but I think the third one didn't count because 3 seconds too late.
>>44129702What would the nano caretakers thing even do? Stick the babies in vats and have nanobots grow them?
>>44129738>What would the nano caretakers thing even do?Protect them inside Shee. Sheperd them to undamaged body parts or become tiny armor to protect them, that sort of thing.
>>44129672Could we just have>A Plant babies>B Not plant babies (subvote afterwards)Instead?I dislike the splitting over this because I hate A so much.
>>44129702Ah yes, sorry forgot to answer this one.The nanomachines option didn't seem like *enough* to me, plus it can be combined with other options.Regardless of where the kids are, they could have nanomachine nursesAnd saids nanomachines would provide more protection against disease than they ever could against Shee being badly injured.So I mostly didn't include them because (as I understand the suggestion) it wouldn't be all that effective.
>>44129753That's not nearly as effective protection as any of the other options.
>>44129755I would ask the same for Split Self, so...

You tell Ms Carter where you'll be, and then head up to see Randolph, explaining why you'll be away.Then, within your realm, you sit down, and focus upon your dimensional arsenal. You can put objects in it, why not a living thing? Why not a part of yourself. You stretch forth your hand into your dimensional arsenal, but instead of drawing something forth you just leave it there.You bring the stump of your wrist up to to your face, seeing the muscle, bone and blood vessels just end, like an anatomists cross-section of a wrist. Within your body you can see your own flesh beginning to deviate from the norm in structure. That's good, that's the way it should be.You leave your hand in there for a minute, then draw it out and flex your fingers, no harm, not even any numbness. You try again, then with your leg, then all of your limbs, your torso simply hanging in mid-air, huh, weird.Finally, you try to hide your children away, along with enough of your body to help them grow.Roll 1d20+5 (Family)

How do people feel about getting Chaoscraft? Not right this second, obviously, but it unlocks some really cool things. Namely,>Luck Manipulation>You can bless people with good luck or curse them with bad luck.>Check: Make a Chaoscraft check, DC 10. You imbue a single target within your line of sight and within 30 metres with a +2 bonus or a -2 penalty to all d20 rolls. Using this power costs 2 psychic energy points, for every 5 points you beat the DC by you can increase or decrease the granted bonus or penalty by 1. This lasts until the end of the encounter.Even works on shaping rolls and aspect stuff.The shapechanging thing is pretty cool but not that great since we already have sotd. The stuff about manipulating backlash and penalties would be decent against any chaosmages we have to fight coming from the fae and Mirror. Would also help buff Kae.
>>44130166>If it does matter, they have nothing to lose.Well actually yes, because before it was a minor joke no one cared much about Pally could have just dropped in when he felt like it.Now they made it a issue, so they pretty much just shot themselves in the foot by making people care.
>>44130170The way it went was 2 against, 2 for, 4 against, 4 for.So, uh, kinda shooting yourself with a remark like that.
>>44130227>The way it went was 2 against, 2 for, 4 against, 4 for....Uh no? It was 1/2, 2/2 and then 6/2.You are really not helping yourself here.
>>44130227I don't even care much but when I voted it was 5to 2. So...
>>44130170>le smutfag strawman>>44130261>>44130248When i voted, it was 6/4.
>>44130248So you're saying that one got 4 votes in a row, and then the other got 4 votes in a row.
>>44130268>When i voted, it was 6/4.Which just kinda proves the point it wasn't constantly tied like >>44130227claimed.it was 6/2 and then all of a sudden only smutfag votes.So yeah, just some transparent sad attempt by a fetishfag to force his shit on others. Moving on now.
>>44130288Except I didn't claim it was consistently tied at all.
>>44130279I'm saying one had a pretty obvious majority until a magic shift happened despite the fact that one side clealry had more reason to vote than the other to begin with,
>>44130288Smutfag this, smutfag that.I think you have a problem understanding that there is no smut in this quest and no one is voting for smut.

Good god its succubusfaggotry all over again, quick Pally....
>>44130317>When the thing I like was winning, it was an obvious majority>When the thing I don't like ties back up with the exact same voting pattern, it was a magic shift and therefore samefagging because I don't like them
After several minutes you've got it: you can hold part of yourself within your dimensional arsenal with only the slightest effort. You make sure you've got it before going back down to join your friends.[Family Aspect increased]With that sorted, you all head out to the psychic research facility.XXX-Ready?- You send to them, as you are all gathered around the heavy reinforced door leading to the war room.-Ready- they all respond. Your finger hovers over the button to open the door.Getting in was easy: you snuck through the facility quietly, and Lirael and yourself simply used your telepathic abilities to ensure that the few guards you encountered forget they saw you.As you approached the war room, Kaelyn gave you a final warning -these might not be high nobles- she sent -and they're in a supposedly secure place, but they will still have defensive spells active, mostly in case one of them attacks another--What kind?- you asked-Mostly protection against magical powers- Kae sent -there will be some protection against physical attacks, but their best powers will be used to guard against magical attacks-Your best powers are magical ones, but you also don't want to simply kill them. You are outside the door to the war room and (as far as you know) there are the four most senior fae inside – you can definitely sense four powerful chaos magic signatures within.When you burst through the door, what will you do?Shee>Plasma pistols>Power (?)>Other (?)Rainya>Plasma pistols>Power (?)>Other (?)Kaelyn>Unarmed Attack >Power (?)>Other (?)Dev>Heavy Laser Rifle>Power (?)>Other (?)Lirael>Plasma Pistols>Power (?)>Other (?)

>>44130466Yes. Yes it is. It's called implantation. The latter bit is referring to gestation. Pretty standard.

You tap the button and the door slides open, you all rush into the room.You quickly take in the situation: four fae sat around the end on a long table at the opposite end of the room. As you enter they turn in your direction and start you rise. Three are dressed in military-looking uniforms and look fairly young – though it can be hard to tell with fae. One is dressed in ornate robes and has long white hair.Dev and Rainya open up with laser rifle and plasma pistols respectively. Kaelyn prepares to pounce on any fae that moves towards you, or tries to flee.The whole room is plunged into shadows as Lirael summons the void into reality. You call forth hands shaped from void energies that reach out and grab at the fae. You snare three of them, but the white-haired one throws himself backwards with astonishing speed and your Hand grabs only empty air. Your Hand twists and writhes in the air, turning back towards you as if its going to grab you. You sense some sort of spell protecting the old fae that would turn magic back against its caster.You are beyond such magics however, beyond such petty rules and constraints and your Hand turns again, lunging for the old fae once more, he sidesteps it.The energy blasts from your allies slam into shields of multicoloured light that appear around each fae, doing no discernible harm.The white bearded fae does not deign to speak but simply holds out his hands and an elegant jewelled staff appears in his grip – with one swipe of his staff your Hands of the Devourer are banished, hissing coloured streams of dancing energy piercing them and ripping them apart.Two of the other fae rush forwards as the other starts casting some sort of spell. It's hard to say exactly what it is.-Kae- You query her as she rushes forwards and engages the two younger fae, exchanging lightning fast blows with them -what is he doing?-
-Summonin-ack- A vicious punch snaps her head around -Summoning help- she warns youKaelyn is fighting two of the fae half-way down the long room, and two fae, including the white-bearded one, are hanging back, using magic.Actions?Shee>Plasma pistols>Power (?)>Other (?)Rainya>Plasma pistols>Duplicate (how many?)>Power (?)>Other (?)Kaelyn>Keep fighting>Power (?)>Other (?)Dev>Heavy Laser Rifle>Power (?)>Other (?)Lirael>Plasma Pistols>Power (?)>Other (?)FoesSenior Fae3 Junior Fae

-Dev guard the door- you send -no one gets in or out--On it!- he responds, dropping back. You lash out with your mental powers, targeting the older, presumably more powerful fae and trying to bend his will to your own. He grins and you feel the psychic energy turning back on you, ready to enslave your will to his. But you are that which should not be, and your powers defy such possibilities. Your telepathic assault slams into him and he grimaces, but manages to resist; you feel a strong burst of chaos magic from him, as if he's burning through his reserves to keep you out of his mind.[PE 71/118]At the same time he casts his own spell and you feel your flesh rip as dozens of points of intense pain suddenly appear within you. You harden your own flesh reflexively and you hear what sounds like metal twisting and breaking – coming from under your own skin.[PE 61/118]Rainya splits into more than a dozen bodies and races forwards to help Kae, and to distract the younger fae casting his spell. The Rainyas slam into the rear fae before his spell is complete and the energies run wild – transforming the table into the middle of the room into what looks like green glass, it starts to hum.The Rainyas gather around him and try to hold him down but he throws them off, they're simply not strong enough to hold him; a fierce hand to hand erupts, with the Rainyas able to hold their own, but not really hurt him, at least, not just using their fists.-This hurts!- complains Rainya -can I hit him with my energy sword, just once?-Against those facing Kaelyn they are much more effective, distracting them both long enough for Kaelyn to turn the tide. With a ghostly dragon appearing around her, Kaelyn launches a flurry of punches and kicks against one of her foes – he sinks to the floor groaning and twitching,Lirael summons forth more hands of voidstuff that lash out at all the fae,

If we can even do that at this level, I can't remember.It's an entirely unnecessary risk with no tangible benefit.

-No guards coming- Dev reports -Need a hand?--No I got this- you say, as you body begins to expand, and a massive hammer takes shape in your grip. Shee the Titan joins the fray.-Take them down!- You direct Kaelyn, Lirael and Rainya[PE 49/118]You rush forwards even as the old fae points his staff at you and a blast of magical energy erupts from it, hitting you in the stomach. Waves of heat and cold and lightning wash over you, a cloud of stones and thorns tries to pierce your flesh even as streams of mystical energy try to invade your eyes and mouth.You shut them all out and push forwards, hardening your skin against the assault.[PE 41/118]Finally you are in range and you bring your hammer crashing down upon the old fae, slamming him to the ground with a single strike. He barely has time to cry out in pain as your hammer hits him. He lies on the ground insensate. Kaelyn hits the fae she is fighting with several hard kicks, he reels groggily but doesn't fall.Lirael rushes over to the fae Kaelyn is fighting and touches him lightly, blood appears in his eyes and dripping from his lips, but only a few droplets, as he fights off her attack. -Fall down!- Lirael demands, but he doesn'tThe Rainyas summon multicoloured bows and fire off arrow after arrow at the fae but most of her shots miss, the rest splash against their shields. However their shields are now looking weak and dim, as if about to fail. The Fae fighting Kaelyn spins and kicks Lirael in the side, knocking her back screaming in pain.[Lirael HP 103/130]The one fighting Rainya, and desperately trying to dodge her shots, summons a silvery crystalline sword and rushes at her, slamming it through the chest of one of her duplicates.“Oh...” says that Rainya, staring down at the sword sticking out of her chest, then she slumps to the ground, her eyes rolling back into her head.
“Now you die!” yell the Rainyas, their bows turning into swords as they close in around him.

>>44132545>“Now you die!” yell the Rainyas, their bows turning into swords as they close in around him.Shit Rainya calm down girl.I kinda want Dev to suddenly turn around and shoot the last remaining fae in the back in a dramatic manner. It'd be funny for the guy who stayed out of the fight almost the entire time were to land the final blow.
>>44132545I thought we couldn't use non Jaggy gifts when we're in titanic form.
>>44132629We didn't use any.
>>44132635The option to Absorb spell was offered just now.
>>44132629Physical mutations disappear but I believe Gifts are still useable.I know Ruler of Shadows blocks non-Baalzamon Gifts, but I don't think Titanic Form did.If I'm wrong and did say otherwise earlier, please let me know.
>>44132614Using Absorb Spell costs 25% of our PE, I know there are anons who know the system alot better than me so I won't vote but are you sure?
>>44132698You forgot our Vitae pool of 70 which we can use for PE 1:1.
>>44132698Odds are good that the fight will be over in 1-2 rounds, and we still have 70 Vitae left to tap into. In a pinch, we could burn HP as well.
>>44132720>In a pinch, we could burn HP as well.Before that we would Gestalt with Lirael and if necessary with Randolph.
Ok, so Humbling Strike and 3-person takedown.Please roll 4d20Am delaying Absorb Spell vote because of Gift use confusion

>>44132832>NThe more powerful one fell with just 17, the PE for a mere 7 is just wasted for no gain compared to over 30 mod.
>>44132876It's actually 8PE, not 10.

>>44132912Could've sworn we got 4 more ranks in the bloodline for a +22 willmod total
>>44132923Nobody was opposed to getting more bloodline last thread but we didn't get it for some reason. I guess Pally didn't want to buy the ranks since some people raised a stink over getting more artifice too.
>>44132956thats very charitable of you anonActually I just forgot, its been a busy week
No Inevitability then
-Get the other one!- You direct your allies -I'll deal with this asshole-Snarling in anger you leap at the fae who just killed one of the Rainyas and swing your hammer, smashing him across the room and into the wall, he slumps down, unmoving but alive.Lirael, Kaelyn and the Rainyas surround the remaining fae, taking him down with blood talons, blasts from energy bows, and fists with ghostly dragon claws surrounding them.With no one fighting back, you all pause, looking around the room. From the doorway Dev says quietly “no one coming”, looking through the small viewing port in the closed door into the corridor outside.“Is everyone ok?” you ask, looking around.“It hurts” Lirael whines, then adds stoically “but I'm ok.”“Just fine” says Kaelyn, rubbing her jaw “but if my instructor could see me, he'd whip me for letting that one get through.”Several of the Rainyas kneel by the deceased one, and touch it together, the dead one disappearing, and the others grunt in pain.A Rainya near you says “Ugh, I hate dying”“So” says Kaelyn, looking around the room “now what?” The humming green table starts to fracture – cracks spreading across its surface.“Now” you say “We make use of these Fae.”Kaelyn gives you a dirty look “how exactly?” she demands.At the same time, the last fae that your allies took down breathes his last.What are you doing with the three remaining fae?>Read their minds>Control their minds (will have follow-up vote for specifics)>Kill them>Other (?)And the dead one, Use Tally the Slain?>Y/N5 Forged by Battle XP gained

>>44133221>Read their minds>try to offer them something they will agree to rather than mind control.I've been thinking and would like to know 2 things. The first is what should anons do if they come up with ideas for powers we could get? should I try to balance it fully before I bring it up or do we just leave a vage idea and expect AA to do all the hard work.The seconed is how do we all feel about asking the hive governer if he wants in on the hottest new vampire family to hit his hive? He must know what's going on with all the other hives falling to a reunited and may be the guy who is offering us an army (he has everything that was offered and reason to be desperate).
>>44133221>Read their minds>Control their minds (will have follow-up vote for specifics)>YMildly inconvenient but I think we can work with this.
>>44133221>5 Forged by Battle XP gainedBeen forever since we've gotten more than the minimum from FBB. Surprising that this gave the same xp as our "fight" with Mistress Steel did.Is there some minimum level of difficulty for extra xp that we're just not hitting?
>>44133394>Is there some minimum level of difficulty for extra xp that we're just not hitting?Well you're managing to avoid the really hard fights. Which is smart, but means you get less from Forged By Battle.
>>44133339I have no idea how it works but I was planning on getting things mostly polished and then asking Pally for his email and discussing them, then I'd make some changes and bring them back.
>>44133339>I've been thinking and would like to know 2 things. The first is what should anons do if they come up with ideas for powers we could get? should I try to balance it fully before I bring it up or do we just leave a vage idea and expect AA to do all the hard work.The choice is yours. You can bring it up in-thread as an idea or even a full power. Or if you PM me on twitter or stick your email in an ASkFM question I'll email you.(obviously I'll delete the question rather than answer it)
>>44133339>He must know what's going on with all the other hives falling to a reunitedI heavily doubt they are aware of the contest at all.
>>44133467>Or if you PM me on twitterYou can only send PMs to people who follow you, so unless you follow that anon he can't do that
For controlling their minds, what will you do?You could simply dominate them, this is the quickest and easiest option, but will only last as long as you concentrate on it. It uses your telepathic abilities only.You could use psychic surgery to implant hidden commands or even restructure their personalities, this will take a long time but have lasting effects. It uses your telepathic abilities only.You could use your Corruption Aspect to simply make them want to serve you and help you. This is quick and powerful, but corrupting powerful magical creatures such as fae nobles may have a lasting side-effect upon you. >Dominate>Surgery>Corruption10 minute vote as normal.Also please roll 1d20+30 for mind reading>>44133485I stand corrected. Ok, send a regular tweet and I'll send my email address via PM if you follow me.

ok, looks like Surgery wins, there will be another follow up vote (sorry) for exactly what you're doing.>>44133757You might have the option to corrupt others in the future so, no comment.
>>44133467Good to know. As Twitter and Ask both need people to sign up I'll probably drop them in a thread.On a related note how would everyone feel about "Darkness Veils the Void" lets us use any void power as shadow and "Voidcrafting" make weapons (and other stuff maybe) out of void as powers for our vamps?>>44133474He probably knows everyoun else has been replaced and that cop who was keeping tabs on the Reapers Daughter might still be reporting some stuff to him.>>44133537>Surgery
>>44133786>He probably knows everyoun else has been replaced and that cop who was keeping tabs on the Reapers Daughter might still be reporting some stuff to him.Yonsul definitly isn't reporting our being a Reunited to him. And no, since not even most fae are allowed to know about the contest its extremly unlikely some random mundane does.
>>44133786>On a related note how would everyone feel about "Darkness Veils the Void" lets us use any void power as shadowI'm not seeing the point? Void is already Shadow but better.
>>44133818He's a Chosen. I've been reading the arcive (btw part 9 doesn't work). But ignoring my speculation where do we stand on seeing if we can get him on side?>>44133853Mostly just to show Bazbro we still love him and to alow us to keep what we can do hidden from anyone who might understand the difference (so Bazbro still loves us). I was looking to make something any vampire we create could take not things just for us.
>>44134056>I was looking to make something any vampire we create could take not things just for us.Could you restate that in different words?
>>44134056>He's a ChosenIf you read the archive you would know this means nothing in regards to how much the fae would trust to tell him, and this is top-level stuff.And likely never, or not until we have removed Kulrathe.>>44134056>Mostly just to show Bazbro we still love himIt would make him mad as fuck though.>>44134056>I was looking to make something any vampire we create could take not things just for us.All our vampires can use void.
>>44134097>>44134125Think of it as a cheep flavor buy for npc vampires in our family if that helps, something we could get but probably won't.Would you like a peripheral that let it work the other way on any shadow powers we have?>It would make him mad as fuck though.I did't get that from reading the quest but I'll take it as a possibility.
