Well, you came to the right place! This quest has an emphasis on world building, character-driven narrative, social interactions and combat. Averagely I post from 6pm to ~10pm PST on weekdays and weekends are determined by my schedule. Last time you spent some time off relaxing in the harpy village and training. You received your new custom weapons and armor and decided to head back to Auriel to get your curse checked out. On the way there though you got caught once again by the arachne of Felwood forest. Your attacker Fey took you back to her place and you managed to coerce her to let you all go. When you finally got to Auriel he told you he couldn't dispel the curse. But he did manage to stop its progress for now, but as a side effect, you stagnated at the age and mind of 15. You asked for some more advice on the sun orb artifact you are carrying and decided to head to the island nation off the east end of the continental plane. You landed on the "Land of Wa" and learned that a war was raging here between 4 warlords. You decided to travel the land before deciding what to do about the war and while doing so you met Takakura or "Taka." a kitsune who longs for adventure and agreed to help you on your trip if she got to join you. You were traveling to the southern part of the island ruled by the dragonkin Ryuga and were being stopped by local village guards who demanded you leash Taka.
>>497141Taka looked up to you waiting for your reply. She was only a kid and degrading her like this just to enter the deeper land ruled by Ryuga was not something you were willing to do. Instead, you call out the guards on their demands, “She is only a kid, how can you be that heartless!” “We have a strict policy of-” “A strict policy that implies you all can handle a little girl if she becomes a problem. Which she won’t and even if she did you are suggesting that you all could not deal with a small girl yourselves. How shameful of you, are you concerned that this small girl is capable of beating you all?!” You let out your feelings and hoped that the guards would see reason. The guards whispered to each other before speaking once again. “We have a strict policy on kitsune here though your qualms are well founded. Why if we could not handle one little girl then we might as well kill ourselves for being embarrassments to lady Ryuga. We only ask that you keep her close.” That was your intention anyways. Shiromitsu told you that he tried peace talks with Ryuga but she refused him simply because she detested the kitsune race. You still have no reason why, but by that fact along you can assume a kitsune was not safe on the streets by herself here. “Thank you, guardsman, for seeing reason.” You thank the guards and head into the town that lay between mountains. The town was affluent with dragonkin, but also various bird species such as harpies and even a few sirens. Though these sirens seem much more mild mannered than the ones you remember. You receive a large number of looks as you stroll through the town. You were expecting that, but these looks tended to linger longer than when you were in Shirokami. You approach one of the locals in hope of finding information. “Hello there ms, would you mind if I asked you the fastest way to lady Ryuga’s castle?” She looks over your group, “And why should I answer you?” “I apologize for not explain fully.” You try to remain as polite as possible. In this land, it seems politeness will take you almost anywhere.”I had hoped to meet lady Ryuga and seek her wise advice on a matter. Not to mention lady Ryuga is renowned as a great leader in this land and not meeting her while here would be a waste.” The dragonkin looks pensive, to say the least, but she sighs and answeres your question regardless,“She lives in a spire that winds around the mountain top east of here. The best way to get to it is by taking the eastern path that splits from this one through the city.” “Thank you madam and we are sorry for bothering you.” The woman gazes down at Taka. Taka does her best to smile but the woman only looks disgusted, “Yeah, you should be.” >Try to learn more in this village (like what?)>Head straight for Ryuga’s spire>Write in
>>502126Try to learn more. People watching that sort of thing. Maybe ask one or two people about state of the war, how they are doing, opinions of other nations, that sort of thing.

>>502264It might be best to watch around town and ask people their opinions on the situation. You tend to notice that most of these people are living pretty relaxed lives. There were children at play, people were working the fields as normal as you could imagine. People in the market square were shopping without a care. Yuki got excited when you went there but you had to talk her down. She already spent more than enough of your funds on clothes and accessories. Overall you would say that it was as if these people didn’t think there was a war going on let a half an hour away from their homes. When you ask some people about how the war is going, how they are and their opinions on the other nations they largely say good, fine and that Tenji (Ryuga’s territory) was the best and they disliked Shirokami the worst. This whole prejudice against kitsune has you puzzled so you decided to take the chance and as a few people “They are tricksters!” “Nothing they say is the truth!” “ungrateful mongrels!” were the responses you got. Taka was hiding behind you all from then on. You did manage to get one older gentlemen who didn’t mind going into detail about the war. “The war has been raging for quite some time, but we have never faced attack, lord Ryuga is a kind leader and only wishes to protect her people. The other nations, however, are either liars, sinful, or crazy. You can’t trust any of them. I only hope that lady Ryuga will win this war soon. I want to be able to live to see her as lord of Wa”
>>502320After spending enough time in the town you head on the eastern path to Ryuga’s spire. You didn’t exactly where it was, but you figured a spire winding around a mountain was easy enough to find. As you travel you notice more and more dragonkin flying overhead and around nearby mountains. Must mean you are getting closer. Eventually, you come to a large wall that was built into two mountains sectioning off the rest of the path to the spire. You look up at what it was guarding. An ornate spire that wound around the mountain. It looked almost like a Chinese dragon was wrapped around it. It was made of almost pure jade and had other gems for detail embedded in the beast. It was one of the only sections of this land that had perfect blue skies above it with rays of sunlight that glistened the spire and only made it look more beautiful. Adrian is drooling over all the gems that could potentially be in there. You punch him lightly in the arm, to discourage stealing from alive people. “Who goes there?!” you see a guard on the gate calling out to you all. You bow, “We are a group of travelers wishing an audience with the lord of Tenji, lady Ryuga.” “And what makes you think she would want to see you, let alone with that thing!” Taka ducts behind you after that comment. “We simply thought it would be a waste to travel to this lovely land without meeting the wise and kind Ryuga.” The guard thinks over what you said. “I will report to my higher-ups and see what they will allow.” “That would be most kind of you.” The guard leaves and you await their return with hopefully good news. “She seems to have a flair for vanity, this Ryuga” Rozalin comments on the lady’s ornate spire. “She is definitely a proud ruler, how that translate to her people skills will be interesting.” The guards return shortly, “You may enter, but I must have you hold onto your “thing” while inside. Lady Ryuga will either see you like that or the kitsune will have to wait outside.The lord of Tenhi despises kitsune to her core it seems. Bringing Taka with you might cause tensions during talks but leaving her by herself in this land as an alternative is… a difficult decision.>Take Taka with you>Leave her for a while by herself>Leave her outside but with others (who?)>Write in
>>502359>Leave Taka outside with the whole group minus you.Otherwise, bad things will happen to her.
>>502363>>502367Leaving Taka by herself is dangerous but going in with her could cause issues. “Everyone, stay here with Taka while I talk with Ryuga. “You can’t be serious!” Anna objects, “You are walking into a warlord's palace, by yourself?! Last time we almost got into a fight with the guards. If something like that happens again, you could be killed instantly. “It won’t come to that.” “How do you know?” This time, the voice came from Yuki. “How do you know nothing will happen,” “Because Yuki I have done this a bunch before, trust me I can take care of it.” “You can take care of it? Are you hearing yourself? You are taking on everything by yourself again!” “Yuki that isn’t what this is about, it's about protecting Taka.” “That doesn’t chance the fact that you are doing it alone, but fine if it's for Taka then I will let it go for now. Just… make sure to come back.” You placed your hand on Yuki’s shoulder. The thought of not coming back never crossed my mind.”You now turn to the guards, “I will see Ryuga alone.” “That is acceptable.” The jade doors of the wall slowly open as you boldly stride into them. If Ryuga was as wise and kind as she has been made out to be hopefully these talks won’t turn sour and you’ll have to somehow fight your way out of the jade palace. There were 5 guards surrounding and leading you to the spire. As you imagined the entire spire was a large spiral staircase and Ryuga would be at its summit. You could have sworn that the climb took you an hour as you nearly collapse after taking the final step. The guards who escorted you, however, were barely breaking a sweat. Must be nice being a dragon that could fly. At the top of the staircase you were greeted by a large door which was painted in bright colors dragons soaring over what you could imagine was the land of Wa the others were below the dragon all looked to be paying reverence to the majestic creature. The guards slowly split the painting in two as the doors swung open. Inside this room, you found a beautiful woman, with ornate accessories covering her head to toe. She must have been wearing at least 3 or 4 layers of robes and her hair looked like it is cared for every single minute of everyday. And her diamond headdress only further added the beauty of her hair to her person. The woman seemed to be waited on by at least 3 different handmaidens who likely brought food to her and fanned on request without a moment of hesitation. “Lady Ryuga, it is truly a pleasure to meet such a distinguished one as you,” You bow respectfully to the warlord. “Yes quite, It is rare… to see a human in these lands, one has not come here in over hundreds of years, why are you here now?>I am a traveler simply seeking answers to questions (what questions) 2d20+4 for her to even answer them >I am a traveler looking to pledge myself into your service. >Can I perhaps interest you in more, intimate matters?>Write in

Rolled 9, 12 = 21 (2d20)>>502443SupportWe should also ask what her opinion of the other lords is.
>>502443>>502455Lady Ryuga, I am a traveler seeking to find out what killed the last ruler of Wa and why this war between the four of you have lasted this long.” “Hmm,non stop” She seems to mull over to answer you or not. She then nods, “The last lord died from someone’s foul play, likely Kakuri, that snake is one in every sense of the word, or it might have been Shiromitsu that lying filth. The night of his death was a meeting between the five of us. The old lord was quite old and wanted to ensure that use four could be at peace with each other. I lead the talks of peace but it was clear to the others that whoever got to be the next lord was the one to declare true peace. I started to address the people of the land rather than their lords and soon the old lord died. I think it was one of the threes desperate attempt to keep the people from unifying under me. It worked as everything fractured but this war has become tedious. I had hoped to win in a year at most, but each warlord had tricks hidden up their sleeves especially that Shiromitsu! The guile and in some cases non-stop aggression has fueled this war and it is only burning higher and brighter.”“Lady Ryuga, you have made i clear that you dislike Shiromitsu, but what do you think of the others?” She scoffs, “Kakuri is a cunning creature, he only strikes when he knows he will win and looks for everyone opportunity to win. Shirabu is a brute, and takes pleasure in killings. How the old lord managed to reign her in I have no idea. “Thank you lord Ryuga, but if you don’t mind I have one other question.” “Again? How many do you have girl?” You might have more after this so you just say it plainly, “Why do you seem to hate kitsune so much.” Her face turns sour for a moment but then regains her beautiful solace like appearance. “Because they are liars, cheaters, and mischief makers. That Shiromitsu is the perfect example. He always played games even when the old lord was alive to gain more power for himself. “Kind Wolf” more like a “Filthy Weasel.” She pauses, “I am feeling exceptionally nice today. And I will warn you that your kitsune companion is lying to you about something, never trust them no matter how small, they will only slit your throat the moment you stop being useful to them and you let your guard down.”>Ask more>Time to reunite with everyone>Write in
>>502482What sort of games did Shiromitsu play?
>>502482"You mean like the fact that Shiromitsu is a woman pretending to be a man? Uh... were did I get that idea?"
>>502502"Also it seems quite incredible that the Emperor has no descendants or heirs to the trone. Even if he became Emperor when he was too old to have kids, shouldn't he have been grooming someone to take his place when he died?"
I am in between passing out. I'll be back tomorrow at 6pm PST.
>>502482Should probably mention that the kitsune people are by and large more welcoming and polite than her own people. I mean really, we should team up with the demons or whoever makes the least bones about what they are then help them purge this depressing land.
Please don't be rude to our host, specially don't say Kitsunes are better. Unless you want the MC to get killed, thank you.
>>502793Purging bag idea. We are info gathering time. And even after info we don't want to Purge. No need to cause another genocide.
>>503209Ditto, there is also the fact we need to be polite and should not provoke a dragon in her lair.
>>503679Provoking dragons, the leading cause of death among adventures. Right up there with falling in pits, and rocks falling from the sky.
>>502493>>502509“If you don’t mind lady Ryuga what games did Shiromitsu play?” “Political games, forging alliances stabbing others in the back. All he cared about was his own gain, he would turn on his own mother if he had the opportunity. One time he even fooled me into believing he had a god idea to bring everyone together when really he was plotting my own downfall. Sneaky bastard uses a guise to get his way.” You get an odd thought, “Could it be that Shromitsu is a woman pretending to be a man with their screen divider?” “No that is not the case, he is a snake who hides his face to maintain an advantage in talks that is all.” She sighs and places her hand on her face. “But that is enough of that man,” “What of the former lord of war instead? Did he not leave an heir or have no descendants.” That is not how it works in the land of Wa. The most powerful lord becomes ruler and manages all the other lords. Though when a lord dies this leads to wars most often. They are always quite short as there is one clear powerhouse. But the old lord wished us to cooperate and divided our power equally resulting in this big mess. The system is flawed, as evident from our current situation but it has been tradition and tradition.”“It is clear that you came here for questions and I answered, but now it is time for me to ask you little one.” “Of course Lord Ryuga” “Will you and your entourage join this war? Not only from your armor but from your stance I can tell you have seasoned many battles. You intend to meddle in our islands affairs at some point. Perhaps aid the side you feel is most just. Well, I can tell you truthfully in the land of Wa wars require no one to be just. You fight and you die all the same. You may seek out the other lords for audiences such as this, but you will learn only the same. You and your colorful group of companions are unknowns and could sway this stagnant affair. Just hope you choose the right side if you do join.” You were a bit confused, she warned you, but she never asked… “Lady Ryuga do you intend to ask me to join your cause?” “No I don’t” She simply replied “?” “You don’t want me to help you?” “If I asked you wouldn’t answer, I am not blind to what you are doing. You will decide your own course of action, not me. But if you do wish to join me I will not turn you away.”Do you intend on joining the war?>I intend to do something about this mess (what?)>I only intend on observing>I only came here for the cute and beautiful monster girls like yourself.>Write inIf you are trying to lie to her it is a d20+2
>>504544I intend to do something about this mess I don't know what yet though. Right now I Must know more about every land by going to each land. But after that I shall decide on what to do.
"I came to this land out of curiosity. But now that I learned about the war I want to help to end it. However until I have talked to the other lords and find out everything I can, I won't make a decision."
>>504568>>504608“I originally came here lord Ryuga out of curiosity but seeing as things are I want help in some way. How that is I do not yet know as I intend to talk with all four lords before arriving at a decision.” You laid out your honest feelings, you didn’t know if it would satisfy the warlord but you answered all the same. “Very well, then you best leave here and continue your journey.” “Thank you for your time lady Ryuga.” The guards look at you and you get the message that it was time to leaveYou make your way back through the spire and Ryuga’s guards acted normally. Thankfully going downstairs is a lot easier than going up and you were back on the ground in no time. The guards continued to escort you as you head to the wall with your friends hopefully on the other side. Once opened you did see your friends but there was one extra among them. A harpy like girl with green and yellow erratic hair about her. “So I was all like sreeeeeee, and then they were all like booooooom!” this figure spoke. “Awesome! What next?!” Adrian happily replied. Seems like this person was trying to recount a story but only Adrian seems to be the one that follows. “What about you human what awesome things have you done.” She asked the young man. “Well, I fought off slavers, helped raise a revolution and the best part.” He prepares his hands. “I can do this!” He shoots geysers of flames from his palms and the girl seems ecstatic.” “Ahh, that is soooo coooool!” “RIGHT?!” Whoever this new girl was she was hitting it off with Adrian. But it was time to interrupt their conversation. “Alright guys sorry about that, and you might you be young miss?” “Me I work for Ryuga and was bored so I came to chat with these eccentric foreigners. The young man here proved the only one refined enough to understand my conversational ways.” “Great…” You look over to Adrian and he gives you a thumbs up. “Well, I better get back to Ryuga, Human what is your name! “Me? Well, my name is-” “No not you, you.” She points at Adrian. “Oh my name is Adrian and I follow our leader.” “Adrian eh? I’ll have to remember it, my name is Raiko come by sometime.” With that, the bird left. You were a little surprised at what just happened, “So uhh… what happened?” “Everyone agreeing states, “I have no idea.” Besides Adrian who answers, “Met a nice girl who was flying on her way back to the spire,” Taka jumps in, “That wasn’t just a girl that was Raiko! You know the one that erased a small section of woods off the map?!” “Really?!” You Adrian responded in equal amazement.You never would have expected one of Ryuga’s most powerful tools to be like that, or hit it off with Adrian. Well, this can be talked about later, for now, we should decide where to go next.You are currently on the southern part of the island>Kakuri and his snakes in the north>Shirabu and her demons in the east
>>504955>Shirabu and her demons in the east.>Ask Adrian if he wants to stay with his new girlfriend for a while.
>>505068>>505108You think about heading to Shirabu and her demons in the east, she is the closest to you after all. Though maybe you want to be careful if her reputation does precede her this might get hairy. “Alright everyone we are going to go to Shirabu in the east, but we must be on guard.” “Rodger that,” Anna affirmed. She was already on guard while we were here, but now she pretends to be “super” on guard. Before you head out, though, “So Adrian you had a nice time with that girl.” “We only talked for like 10 minutes while you were away but overall yeah I thought she was nice.” “You uhh want to stay here and hang out with her?” He turns red, “W-W-What?! I always go with you guys, and how would I know I would be safe here on my own.” “Rozalin leans in, “Simple. All you have to do is stay on her good side. If you need some tips, though…” She begins to whisper in Adrian's ear but Aki pulls her away from him, “Don’t listen to her, just be yourself with this, granted you should be careful since you would be close to Ryuga.” You address their concerns, “Ryuga is a smart leader, she will not harm you in any way regardless if Raiko doesn’t want you there.” “Are you sure?”Roll a 2d20+4
Rolled 14, 14 = 28 (2d20)>>505253
Rolled 8, 10 + 4 = 22 (2d20 + 4)>>505253I don't know what I'm rolling for
>>505290“Well…” Adrian shifts his eyes around. “I guess I can stay here for a bit….” “What?!” Yuki yelled. “Are you just okay with being left in potentially enemy territory while we head out like this?” You again speak, “Trust me Yuki he will be fine. “How do you know that?” “I just do, Adrian you should have some fun every now and again. We are heading to the Eastern territory, but we will come for you once we finish our tour. “O-Okay?” You give him a quick pat on the shoulder smile and face him toward the spire. Adrian stumbles as he walks to the gate and announces his entrance to meet with Raiko. The guards open up and you see a yellow light flash from the spire down to the ground behind the wall. Adrian is by himself now, but hopefully, he will be alright. He should be, you didn’t want to say it in front of him but Ryuga knows you might become her ally so she would keep him safe. Even if you become her enemy she would hold him hostage to keep you from attacking her. It was kind of a jerk thing to do to make someone a contingency in a war but hopefully, he at least enjoys himself. “For the rest of use, we will head to the eastern country.” Roll a d20>>505380To convince Adrian to stay
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>505454Why did people vote to leave Adrian here again? Why did you people do that?
>>505454Weird reason to split party, when he didn't even want to stay
>>505502You travel down the mountain path and head for the east. The dragon guardsmen and people all take note of you but as you were on your way out they didn’t care as much as when you arrived. You just silently made your way through the towns. You were walking near the border of the two territories when you notice another skirmish was taking place.>Check it out>Ignore it and keep moving, if they are busying fighting themselves they won’t fight you>Write in
>>505561>Check it outAccursed Inquisitiveness.
>>505585Well, last time things went fine why not check it out this time again. You sneak on through the woods that bordered the two provinces and found a familiar sight, Oni fighting dragon people. This time, though the Oni were decisively winning. It was 10 on 5 to be fair. One of the dragonkin yells, “Damn it where is she? She loves to fight small fry like this?” “I don’t know!” one of the others yell, “She hasn’t been responding to our calls.”Welp. >Join the Dragonkin side>Join the Demon side>Keep moving
>>505502Because he meet a nice girl and the MC isn't a jerk? Also he can see how to prevent bad things so je knows what not to do in a relationship.
>>505673>>505771Best to keep moving. You head further into the demon territory but so far it is relatively peaceful, well as peaceful as worsening black landscapes and storm clouds can be. You heard the constant skittering a small animals which you had no idea what or where they were. The ground rumbled under your feet occasionally and the trees in the forest slowly looked more and more decayed and rotted. After a bit of walking the rumbling of the ground intesified. Through the trees you could start to see a dark plain with a hole 50 men riding horses. Tehr was one energetic one in the ground shouting something or other. You get the feeling that this happens a lot here. Roll a d20
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>505879
>>505899Surprisingly your journey into the lands was not too rough. Seems most of the raids and skirmishes take place on the borders were as the inner territory is relatively peaceful, if not a little dark in tone. You now come up to a small village where familiarly the guards there stop you. Two oni, one red the other blue say to you. Now what is a human of all things doing here?” “I didn’t know there were any of them left Hans.” “There ain’t supposed to be Franz, but I wonder if they be squishy like the lord tells us.” You sensed your opportunity, “You mentioned lord Shirabu, Could I seek an audience with her?” “You mean you wants to talk? Well I don’t know how well that will go for ya, but the lord does enjoy her challenges.” “Challenges? We just wanted to talk to lord Shirabu.” “Don’t worry human she will accept your challenge, she always does.” “That's too bad Franz I wanted to fight the human myself.” “Can’t be helped the lord always looks for a chance to stretch her legs. The two oni mildly complain to each other as they let you pass. “One last thing” you called to the guards, “Were is lord Shirabu?” “She in the castle?” He looks to his companion as if he didn’t know. “Yeah the castle east of here!” The other one yells. “Thanks?”That was certainly interesting, you were glad you got in easy but it felt a little off. “Hey Taka do the demons always act like this?” “They are usually rowdy like the ones on the border but the tradition of honor on this island is strong everywhere. If you challenged their lord only they could address it.” “But I didn’t challenger her at all! I just wanted to talk.” “Apparently that was enough for her.” “But she wasn’t even there for it!” I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what she is like. As you walk through the town you notice that it seems a lot like a normal village only bleaker and most people have demon horns or tails and questionable temperaments, “Hye Nessera was your old village like this. “Yes, it was relatively peaceful, more so than this one though.” Interesting.>Hand around town (and do what?)>Head straight to Shirabu’s castle
>>506017Hand around town and repeat what we did last time. People watching. Asking people about the state of the way, how they are doing, opinions of other nations, that sort of thing.
>>506037>Hand around town (and do what?)>Have Victoria and Anna fight any challenges.
>>506049That works. A lady only answers worrhy challengers if they defeat her warriors first.
>>506049I mean, let us not try to start shit. But if it comes to that and we can't talk our way out of it. Victoria can probably take out people.
>>506055Any demons that see Victoria and Anna would asume they are in a classic blue oni red oni relationship.
>>506059Damn I never noticed it before but it fits. Will those two become Oni if they defeat too many demons? (I hope they do)
>>506049You might want to hang around town like in Tenhi to figure out more about this place. You were concerned about people challenging you because you all were newcomers. You were right to be concerned as many people show up to challenge you to one on one brawls. You didn’t have to answer them but if you wanted to be more in touch with the populace you might want to. “I’ll do it,” Victoria cracks her knuckles. “Thanks, Victoria just try not to kill people,” Anna piped up, “Hmph if she is fighting then I will too.” “Heh,” Victoria scoffs “Shall it be the usual pipsqueak?” “You mean your usual defeat?” “Over my dead body!” After delivery, that line Victoria belts one of your demon challengers in the face. Anna seems upset, “I didn’t say we were starting yet!” “We’re starting.” “Why you!” Anna and Victoria then begin to hover around you as you walk through town. Beating up anyone who tries to mess with you while counting how many people the each took out. While you were surrounded by a whirling storm of fists and hurtful comments you managed to talk with some of the crowd, well most of them were interested in challenging you so you had Nessera talk to some of her own people. “So what is the general word on the streets Nessera?” “Word is that lord Shirabu commonly fights on the front lines herself but her advisors are instructing her not to. She is said to be cooped up in her castle and restless. Making your challenge probably all the more welcoming to her.” “Good to know… Taka, is there anything about demon traditions you know of” “Hmm,” the young kitsune scratches her head, “They like drinking?” She tilts her head in uncertainty. Well, it’s something. After causing a whirlwind of beat up men and women you think it is time to head toward Shirabu’s castle. After Anna and Victoria’s magnificent display it didn’t seem like many people wanted to mess with you. Well except Anna and Victoria messing with each other. But that was nothing new. “Another tie?!” “No way I beat up 15 there was no way you got 15 as well. I counted both of ours!” “Fat chance pipsqueak, you’re just trying to make up for not being able to keep up.” “grrrrr.” Anna holds herself back and stews in her own anger. She might need to redirect it at another soon. You think in the distance you can see your destination, a dark castle which looked straight out of gothic European architecture. Tall, pointy and overly elaborate arches. The castle was black and you could swear that a permanent thunder cloud was stationed over it. You should think about how you are going to go about approaching Shirabu. >Challenger her to a fight>Try to ask questions >Challenger her to a drinking contest. >Tell her that either Shiromitsu or Ryuga are planning an attack as you two speak!>Try to pet her if she is cute>Write in
>>506146>Challenge her to a fightShe's restless this might put her in a good mood.
>>506146It's going to be a little girl isn't it.
>>506146Try to pet her if she is cute? Damn you QM always dangling amusing things in front of us. Want to vote on this so bad. But the correct answer is >Challenger her to a fight
>>506168>>506175What do you mean by Mother her?

>Pet and act like a caring mother to her if she is younger than you.> Challenger her to something you can win like a board game you are good at. Or chess or something like that.
>>506202That works better. Changing my vote to this.
>>506202This will do.Supporting.
>>506202Mkay. Ill support this.
>>506146Ohh I forgot to add it at the end but this is the last post of tonight. Good thing I checked before heading to bed.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>506202Challenging someone as like Shirabu if she is as bloodthirsty as people make her out to be to a fight would not be a wise decision. If it comes to it maybe you can play her in a game of chess or another board game you were good at. Though a thought occurred to you, what if Shirabu was younger than you? She has advisors as most rulers do but she is confined to a castle by them. Could that mean she has yet to come into age? If so maybe you could use this to your advantage. Maybe if you act like your favorite vampiress you can get somewhere. Just maybe. You continue your march toward the dark castle when you notice that unlike Ryuga’s tower or Shiromitsu’s castle there were no guards at all. You walk straight up to the castle doors and announce, “Uhh… I have come to speak with lord Shirabu.” The doors just open on their own. Spooky. In the main audience chamber though you meet a tall and skinny man of dark complexion. Lord Shirabu is not accepting chats at the moment.” “Well, this chat might end up being a challenge.” “Truly? She would enjoy stretching her legs and killing someone for a change of sitting in this dark place. I will fetch her immediately.”That was the easiest you have had it with the warlords. It seems the demons care almost nothing about defensive protocols or maybe Shirabu is so confident in herself she doesn’t need them. Either way, your “Talks” will begin soon.Rolling to determine the MC’s mad skills in a board game1=Stratego2=Battleship3=Monopoly4=Chess5=Checkers6=Backgamon7=Go9=Dungeons and Dragons10=Poker
>>508083>Monopoly This is a lieYou're not "good" at monopoly.Only blessed by RNG
Anyway, it seems Checkers wins.
>>508083You know she will accept your challenge, but it will be to a game of checkers not a game of combat. You could still “kill” at checkers by just being better than the other player but it might take some convincing to get the demon lord to play. From one of the dark staircases you hear footsteps coming down the stairs, “So who is it that I get to kill today?” Lord Shirabu spoke as the demon walked down to meet her opponent. You had to pinch yourself because there was no way that your random thought could have been right and Lord Shirabu is a young girl. She couldn’t look over 8 years old, had long flowing blond hair. Beautiful white skin with a simple but commanding black and red dress. The one accessory that did spook you a bit was the bloodied katana she was carrying slung over her shoulder. “Well!” she goads the audience.You really tried to hold it in but there was no way, not in the face of this, “Oh my god you are just so adorable!” It was as if you teleported to the demon lord as you sprinted to her in record time. “hehe, “ You pet and pat the head of the young demoness. “Whaaaaaaaaa?” She seems quite confused. But after a minute she gets what is happening and swings down her katana at you. It was a jerky swing so you were able to jump back and dodge it easily. “D-Do not treat me as a child. “The demon spoke as she was rubbing her head as if to cleanse it off your touch. You prepared your best Mother voice, “I am sorry darling but you just looked so cute, can you really blame me?” Again she seemed shocked. She points her Katana at you “S-Stop it! You came here to challenge me and I will see you dead!” small drops of blood fell off the katana. You double checked yourself real fast but you had no wounds. Yet it was freshly bloodied.>Lord Shirabu let us play a game of checkers d20+4>Lord Shirabu we shall fight you one on one>Lord Shirabu we will fight you all at once>Darling… let's be real here you liked it when I pet you and treated you like that d20+4>Write in>>506158>>506179>Planned from the beginning to make Shirabu a loli>Players guess it as soon as it becomes relevantI can't even

>>508251>>508255>>508262>>508267>>508273She seems to be wavering slightly when you treated her like that. Maybe you can channel Mother and Rozalin some more to convince her to not fight you. “Let’s be honestly darling, you liked it when I petted you and treated you like that.” “D-Did not!” “This wouldn’t be so hard on yourself if you just were honest.” You started walking forward as the young demon continued to increase the velocity of her shaky wrist. “S-S-Stay back! I have not received the official challenge so just say so so that I can kill you!” “Alright, I got a challenge.” “Finally!” The shaky wrist was stabilizing as she could let loose her bloodlust. “The challenge I had in mind would be me petting you and talking." The blade fell from her hands. "If I win you will have to talk with me about everything.” “Her wists and almost her entire body shakes rapidly. If you hunch was right she would accept and either way, her pride shouldn’t let her decline. “F-F-Fine! But if I win I kill you.”
>>508467“Now let’s begin.” She looks up at you with disdain. “You place your hand on her head and she keeps her disdaining glare in direct eye contact. “Now how have you been here in the castle?” She was taken back by the question. “Uhhh… bored, I haven’t gotten to kill anything until just...now” “That’s sad, a ruler like you should be able to do as she sees fit, for the good of the people after all.” “And I kept telling them that but noooooo, ‘you’re too valuable’ they said. Glad, I got to kill one on the way here.” So that’s why her sword was bloody, this little girl was kinda scary but you can’t let that stop you. Your petting skills were being put to the test and you continued your assault. “That’s too sad darling, you will just have to pay the enemy back ten times when you finally get out.” “Y-Yeah, ahh,” You increased the momentum of your palm and you could tell she was enjoying it. She was wavering, it was time for the killing technique. You shift yourself to behind the young demon and embraced her with your hand still on her head patting away, “Don’t worry Shirabu, you can tell big sis anything. I’ll make sure you will get out of here someday.” “mmmhhhm, Y-Yeah…” You feel the girl relax in your arms. But then there is a sudden stiffening of her body. She stops all movement and you hear, “no no no you will…. Not…she stiffened in a last-ditch effort of resistance. She held everything inside, her movements and even her breath. Nothing was going to break her, but this resistance only made you apply more pressure. You hand shifted from soft gentle pats to rough ruffling. “N-No…..” The two sensations which shifted rapidly combined with your ever tightening hug was slowly whittling away at her. “It’s okay Shirabu, just listen to your big sis and I’ll make sure you are well taken care of, we can even go out and play(kill) together.” After a second she releases all her tension. She realized that resistance was no longer possible, “Ahhhhhhhh,” she exhales as she turns to warm jelly in your arms. “Ha...ha...ha..” she was heavily breathing, “Y-Y-You… win...Onee-chan.” The little demon looked to be in between consciousness and she looked like she would fall asleep in your arms at any moment. She looked like she was about to nuzzle in.>Let her sleep>No she needs to answer questions>Write in
>>508472>Let her sleepWe can ask questions later.
>>508472>Powerful demon>Pets her into submissionTop kek>Let her sleepHave her sleep on our lap while we continue to pet her.
>Let her sleep>Ask Taka what she thinks if what you just did.
>>508523This works.If Taka is a spy she will be terrified.Tuxedo nissan capcha? Okay.
>>508483>>508485>>508523>>508538You should let her sleep, after what she went through she is pretty blissed out and you don’t want to ruin that for her. You keep her in your lap, though. She was even cuter while she was asleep. “So Taka, what is a Onee-chan?” You noticed that Taka appears rather stunned at what just happened. Not just her but Rozalin, Nessera and even Aki looked speechless. “W-What?” “You just petted a demon lord to sleep,” Taka utters. “Yeah?” “I just….I can’t... how?!” She is flabbergasted. You look to your petting hand. You clench and unclench your fist. Did you always have this power?” “I just can’t even….” She sits down and holds her hand to her forehead. “Hooooooooooowwwwwww?” She probably needs some time to cool down. Which is fine cause you had to wait for Shirabu to wake up regardless.You friends come up to you, “I must say I am impressed young one, we all knew you had the ability to talk but your finger work seems to be top notch,” Nessera admitted. “Fufu, maybe she can give me lessons sometimes,” Rozalin stretches her hands. You then hear a voice in your head, “I had no idea you could adopt my persona so quickly and effectively. Darling, you are truly something, but there were plenty of missteps , first you need to to have them fall into your arms not take charge yourself, then you-” You tune her out, “Whatever.”There isn’t much you can do while you wait for her to get up so you might as well think of some questions or what to do when she does get up>Questions (what)>Actually Shirabu I was wondering if you want to go get some exercise with me>Write in
>>508640Let us ask her some questions when she wakes up. That was the terms of our challenge. Ask her about this War? Why it has lasted so long? If she has tried to talk to the other lords? What happened to the old lord? Opinions of other lords? How she became lord even though she looks so young? What she wants to do to these lands? That sort of thingWe should continue with light petting while asking these questions. It seems to calm her down and makes her more receptive to questioning.
>>508640"So Taka are you a spy or the daughter of the lord of the kitsunes?"
>>508664Also ask if she would be interested in peace with the Other lords.
>>508675"Actually, why don't you write a challengeletter and I go to deliver it to [insert lord name here]?"
>>508689No need to cause havoc yet. We just need to know if she is open to peace. No need for causing challenges.
>>508709"Now that I think about it, it must make the demons very angry the dragons just keep summoning the Thunderbird to win the fights."
>>508736Are you just trying to start havoc? Happy demon good. Just questions. No need to cause anger and more war.
>>508740"I said that out loud didn't I? I was just suposed to think it."
>>508670>>508689>>508736>>508750So which one of them are we doing here?
>>508771Why not all? As long as the demon girl doesn't wake up yet the MC could be thinking out loud.
>>508778You could think of a few questions, your typical run of questions involving the war but you really just wanted to know how she became the lord of this realm when she is so young. Though while you are waiting, “Hmm we can spin this in a way to aid us, we can write a challenge letter and deliver it to a lord, or maybe we can help them deal with that thunderbird, but we have to consider if someone here is a spy. The kitsune are resource-” you now realize you were thinking out loud, “Whoops, sorry guys I got a little ahead of myself. Taka is upset, “You think I am a spy!” “No, no, no I was just thinking that someone could be…” “YOU MEAN ME!” “It was only a theory Taka I don’t think you are a spy, Lord Shiromitsu seems to be quite clever and if anyone would have spies it would be him.” “And I am his agent? I came with you guys for fun, and adventure, not to be accused of being a spy!” “Taka you are being drastic, all I said was…>Write in d20+4 (convince Taka you were just being paranoid and meant no harm)>Get out you spy!
Rolled 14 + 4 (1d20 + 4)>>508778Thanks buddy. The Havoc is "appreciated">>508790I'm sorry Taka I'm just being paranoid. I'm starting to jump at shadows, there are these voices. I can block them out, but sometimes. All of this is just getting quiet exhausting. I could truly use a break from all this. Again sorry Taka for accusing you of anything or even thinking of such things.
>>508790Um, spying can be fun too?
>>508813Are we just fucking with everything now. Should we just kill her right here and now and get it over with. Would that please people?
>>508856But she could be a spy. And Yuki could be a spy for Mother. So could Anna. Everyone is spy. We have little to no evidence but let us randomly accuse people of spying.
>>508803>>508664>>508675“I am sorry Taka, I was just being paranoid.” That won’t be enough so you’ll have to explain fully.” “You see Taka, there are shadows, spirits, something that are in my head. They talk to me and I can block them out but it has cause some… effects. I just let my head get ahead of me sometimes. I am sorry Taka for even considering it.” Taka doesn’t say anything but instead looks over to your friends. They all nod confirming your story. Yuki even speaks up, “She means well in everything she does, but she is overworked to death and now is… tired I’d say.” Taka sighs, “Fine.” Taka crosses her arms and sits down. Now I guess you can only wait for the demon lord to wake up.After a few hours of passing time by Shirabu awakens, “mhhhmmm, who’s for breakfast,” Hopefully she is just groggy or this might end poorly, “Ohh Onee-chan” she looks down and blushes, “You… don’t have to keep holding me you know.” “Alright,” You help her to her feet and give her one last pat on the head for good measure “So like we agreed you will answers some of my questions, first one being, “What is an Onee-chan?” “Ohh it is the traditional word for elder sister, it is quite old but I like it. My parents were always heavy on tradition.” “Speaking of parents, where are they and how old are you?” “I am I think 57 years old.” “I am sorry what?!” This time, Taka explains, “The demon lords have always had long lifespans. The ruling family can have a natural life of upward to 600 years, though they are still mortal and can be killed.” “Which is what happened to my parents! Those rats plotted to kill them!” She throws her arms around in a semi-cute anger. “What do you mean?” “One of those three plotted to kill my parents to weaken our position” Her blue eyes turn red, “But I sure am showing them what happens when you mess with us. “Their fields are burning, their people fear for their lives as we burn the villages and devour the remains. Hahaha! Oh.” Her eyes turn back to normal. “So do you want to rule over all of the lands or are you consumed with vengeance! Here eyes turn red again, “I want to watch those three burn, I will stab them while hold them one by one by their hair so I see the light leave their eyes. That would make me ruler in the process.">Ask more questions>Head out now to Kakuri >Write in
>>508873How do you know that one of the lords killed your parent?
>>508876"They died only a year after the old lord died. The timing is too consequential and I saw them bloodied and beaten, blood dripping from their many stab wounds. It was unlikely that the lords themselves committed the act but whoever did represent one of them. Mother and Father, we well liked in the country as they kept all of my people in check and in good temperament. It had to have been one of those bastards." She picks up her sword. "So which one are we going to kill first?"
>>508886Uh. None right now. Personally I am hoping to resolve this a little more peacefully. But we will definitely figure out who killed you parents. and they will be brought to justice.But if you want to work out some aggression a sparing match could be interesting. Not to the death or to wound or anything, just some training. Never fought a demon before.
>>508894"Peacefully? Tell me how they peacefully solved the situation by killing my family. The others are the same, none of them will back down. Killing them is the only option, and I promise to crush the one responsible for my family deaths. I only wish I was a necromancer so I could raise and kill them again, and again." Probably not a good idea to tell her you are one."You wanna go a bit Onee-chan? If you fight as good as you talk this ought to be good, but I can't promise..." here eyes flash red, "You won't be hurting after this.">Spar with Shirabu>We really should get going
>>508962>Spar with ShirabuWe are sort of injured we can always stay here a night. Shirabu probably will not mind
>>508972>>508965You know a spar with a dangerous enemy might be just what you need. You haven't actually gotten into a real fight with your new weapons and equipment and maybe you can give it a good test. “Alright, Shirabu let’s go.” She licks her lips, “Alright…” You all just travelled outside the castle. You faced opposite of the small demon. She held her katana nonchalantly in one hand, somehow blood was still refreshing dripping off it, but you didn’t want to know where that question led. “So what are the rules for a spar here in your land.” “There aren’t any, treat this as a fight, and I won’t kill you.” “Alright…” She readies herself as you do the same. “Don’t disappoint me Onee-chan.” She rushes headlong at you. >Play the defense game>Play offense>Magic>Let her stab you for a surprise attack>Write in
>>508986Let us try to stay defensive so we can get a sense of her combat style. See if there are any weaknesses.

>>509007Shirabu goes for an overhead slash but you were able to brace with the combined strength of your blade and sword breaker. You feel the weight of a boulder bearing down on you as you block and you have to further brace your stance just to withstand the blow. You didn’t have to try and fight right now, the first step to winning is knowing the opponent, especially their fighting styles. “Not bad,” she huffs as she drops her weapon. It was entangled in your sword breaker but this was, unfortunately, a sword you didn’t want to break so you tossed both the weapons aside, but you kept note of where it was. Shirabu says, “This will get boring if you just stand there Onee-chan.” She leans down to the floor on all fours. After analyzing her surroundings she sets off. You had never seen anything so fast that wasn’t Auriel's time magic. You see brief images of her dashing from side to side in a zigzag pattern toward you. She delivers with that speed a punch to your solar plexus. Again you manage to brace but you are sent sliding back almost three feet. “So, have you decided to try yet? Or am I going to need to get more serious?”>Time for more defense d20+5>Time for offence d20+6>Magic (do what?)>Write inLast post of the night.

>>509718Yeah cause headpats is a game.Anyway I hope Yuki can heal us from this. I really don't want to do another Quest for Yaga.
>>509770We beat her at a challenge. Then decided to spar with her for some training. No idea why people are getting uppity. Do people just not read the previous posts. Because you need to to understand context to situations. Its not even that many posts. I'm not asking you to read the archives just like 4 or so posts from the QM.And about the fighting we are NOT I repeat NOT fighting her as a challenge. Again I repeat NOT part of a challenge. We are having a sparing match. NOT TO THE DEATH OR TO CRIPPLE. WE ARE TRAINING. Let me repeat again NOT TO THE DEATH OR AS A CHALLENGE. THIS IS A FRIENDLY MATCH.
>>509795She is young and a demon who is eager to kill. Maybe she doesn't know how to hold back in a spar.She is also a Lord, so is reasonable to be worried.
>>509810We have people to heal us along with our regeneration, we are in favour with her, and we have back up if things get to dicey. We are safe. We will probably hurt after this and need to spend the night here, but we are not going to be crippled or die.
>>509810She is also not young. Again read the damn posts she is 57.
>>509817Actually let's expend the night even if we survive the spar more or less intact. I want the MC and Aki to get a private room and finally do it before a random monster girl takes the MC virginity away.
Yeah let's make Aki our real girlfriend already.
>>509912Sadly this is a SFW board so if the GM wants to write anything NSFW she will have to link it here instead of direct posting.
Rolled 20 + 10 (1d20 + 10)>>509032>>509035Defense wasn’t getting you anywhere so it was time for some offense. You firmly grasp your blade in two hands and run toward your opponent. She was unarmed which typically would give you an advantage but this little girl seemed more than capable of dealing with the handicap. You swing your blade down she goes for a low shot to your legs but you shift to the side and she slides by you. “A feint eh? Not bad but you’ll have to work harder to actually hit me.” You were in a bit of a pickle you needed to stay agile enough to dodge but at the same time, you needed to be able to hit her. You widen your stance to prepare once again to attack. This time, Shirabu charges first. You meet her charge but when she lunges you jump over her and swing down, scraping her in the arm. That blow did not phase her as she turns immediately to grab you by the ankle, but she just barely misses. Damn! There has to be some way to fight and defend at the same time. Wait just maybe… You throw your arm to the ground and sprout a group of skeletons under your command. “Haha,” the demon laughs, “You are a necromancer? Well then let's see just how this goes.” These skeletons would only be fodder for her but fodder is distracting. The skeletons fan out around the girl while you close in once again. As the skeletons one by stagger their charges. Your skeletons reach her first but are getting easily batted away with single blows that shatter their shambling bones. In one of her attacks though you come down with your swing. Nicking her again but this time in the back. “Good GOOD” she calls as she finishes off the last of the skeletons. Rolling for ShirabuSo I had surgery today and am a bit high on pain meds. Let's do this bois
>>510919>We lose, badly, before we can even rry to use water magic.
>>510919A 30? Hope Yuki can fully heal us.
>>510919Shirabu, at unheard of speeds, dashes to her weapon and almost kicks it up onto her shoulder. “Let’s finish this Onee-chan.” She leans down and sprints straight toward you. This charge of hers was different from before she kept accelerating and there looked to be a red trail of blood behind her every step. Her eyes were glowing the same eerie color and she smiled with bloodthirsty excitement. You had to either block or dodge this attack somehow, but it felt as if the ground was trembling from Shirabu’s strides. You did your best to brace and prepared to parry. Shirabu’s strike came from the side, you did manage to block but the force of the initial strike broke your arm. The blade was not finished though as it slide across yours which was forced now almost against your chest to keep it from hitting vitals. You vitals were protected but the blade's swing continued and cut off your other arm at the shoulder cleanly. You fell backwards onto the ground. Blood flowing from your shoulder. Shirabu stood above you panting and licking the blood which flew from the severing of your limb. “Ha…. ahh… ha...Thanks Onee-chan. I needed that."Ther thanks were bitter as you were left bleeding out on the ground. “I knew this was a bad idea!” Yuki said sprinting over to you. “Damn, why did you have to be so careless like this!” She places her hands on you and the warm holy glow extends over your entire body.>Roll a d20+10

>>511223Shut up and vote to kiss Yuki, she earned it
>>511232Is what the GM wants...
>>511085Yuki yells, “Someone grab me her arm!” “On it!” Anna dashed over to your arm and despite looking grossed out carried it over to her as fast as she could. “Place it next to her shoulder.” “Okay.”The warm glow radiating off of Yuki’s hands turns hot. The pain you felt moments ago when your arm flew from your body vanished. “Come on!” Yuki gritted her teeth in frustration. The magic she was outputting was closing your wound but that wasn’t enough, she needed to reattach your limb. “Come on, Come on, Come on, COME ON!” she yelled. The next moment the warm glow Yuki radiated burned brighter and brighter yellow. It became blinding to all around as it looked like Yuki was channeling the Sun’s own image. You felt a surge of warmth, comfort, and safety. During this intense beam of light and after a minute the beam slowly dimmed until the glow emanating from Yuki stopped altogether. You looked over to your arm, it was back! You clenched your fist while bending your arm and it felt perfect, there were no signs of wear at all. Strangely enough your other arm that was only broken seemed fixed too. You could move it just as easily even though you were sure Shirabu shattered most of the bones in your arm. You sit up from your position with your arms spread wide in joy. You turned your torso and hugged Yuki as hard as you can. “Thank you so much, Yuki!” You could not believe the power Yuki had within her and your appreciation for her help was overflowing. “Yuki I could just…” You pull back from you hug and kiss Yuki on the lips in your moment of bliss. “Thanks, Yuki, I don’t know what I would do without you.” You smiled at your best friend, but she didn’t return one. “Yuki?” You expected her to at least acknowledge the kiss you gave her but her head was hung low and her eyes looked dim. She said weakly, “Yeah, no proble-” She collapses into your arms. “Yuki?” She didn’t respond, “Yuki?!” You turn her over to see her face properly. She looked unconscious. “Someone get her some help!” Your friends all dash over but Aki takes over for her care. The basilisk puts the back of her claw against Yuki's forehead and another on her chest. “She has a fever, but she is breathing and has a heartbeat. She’ll be fine but she needs rest and care.” You breathe a sigh of relief. Shirabu comes up to you all, “Onee-chan, I’m sorry I got carried away....” She hangs her head,” in an apologetic fashion. >”It’s okay, just apologize to Yuki when she wakes up">"Get away from me!">Write in

>>511436Yes.He made a whole rant about it just being a spar and we almost lost an arm.
>>511436>>511447I only operate on what I know or assume at the time.If I knew ahead of time that this would happen of course I wouldn't suggest a spar. But I didn't know this would happen.
>>511457Some people asumed correctly that fighting a DEMON LORD even as a spar was a bad idea, but noo...
>>511457We warned you bro, we warned you about the stairs.
>>511466And yet none of these people were around when we voted. Do you want me to just admit I messed up and made a bad call. Then cool, my error. If you want to stop such things in the future then be here for the votes. But talking about how it was a bad vote way later on doesn't change anything.>>511478Stairs? What are you talking about?
>>511498Ah yes. Everyone is against us. Assume the worst of everyone. We should just kill all our "friends" and everyone we meet. Only way to be safe.
>>511496They voted for a board game then there was another vote were the DM put a vote for a spar despite the board game vote made previously. What are you guys, five? We have to lock away everything dangerous less you drink the cleaning supplies?The reasons we voted for a board game still applied, as in, we were a mere human facing the leader of a race of demons.
>>511503>Protests saying we were jerks to monkey boy>Then protests when we give a chance for monkey boy to get laid with someone who is not the MC and leave him someplace were he is somewhat safer than in the road.
>>511515So the theme of the day is read the damn posts. So read them. The sparing came after the whole board game stuff. We beat the challenge by petting her then voted to have a sparing match as some training. There was nothing attached to this. This was not a replacement for the board game. Why do people keep bringing up the board game plan. That plan is super in the past. Are we going to also mention how we should have gotten more info and not have trusted the Grand General of the mermaids.>>511522I protest the monkey boy part because you are calling him Monkey boy, still.Further more how do you know he is safe. #Remenbertobeproperlyparanoid2016He is probably dead. Which is probably my fault somehow.
Can we decide to stay and sleep in the same room with Aki and Yuki? So we can watch over Yuki and Aki can watch over us?
Sorry guys its gonna be a bit some things came up
>>511418>>511425>>511436You looked at the demon and then back at Yuki. “It’s okay, you’ll just have to apologize to Yuki when she wakes up.” The demon still hangs her head low. You reach out and rub her head a bit. “I told you it’s okay , you just got a little carried away during the spar, you’re a demon, after all, just try to be a bit more careful in the future. For Onee-chan’s sake, okay? “Mmmh!” Shirabu smiles and nods her head. “In which case, we should head back to my castle for now. I have plenty of rooms available and if my advisors say otherwise I’ll just “exercise” my right of rule.” She grins.“Alright.” You stand and pick up Yuki and carry her over back to the castle. Inside you found Yuki a room immediately and set her down on a bed. Looks like you get to enjoy the hospitality of a demon lord tonight. Hopefully, it will all go smoothly but you think on what would be best to do tonight.>Talk with Shirabu>Talk with one of your friends>Stay by Yuki’s side (as a friend)>Stay by Yuki’s side (as more than friends)>Write in
>>511717>Stay by Yuki’s side (as more than friends) with Aki."Aki, remember when we talked about sharing or actually I said I would ask you first, well..."
>>511729It makes sence, let's do this.
>>511717>Stay by Yuki’s side (as a friend)
>>511729>>511745After placing her in her bed you take a long look a Yuki’s face. She has the face of enthusiasm and a caretaker. She had cared for you ever since you were young and her bright personality has always brought a smile to your indifferent face. She has always had your best intentions at heart and cares about you more than anything else. You think again that you were truly lucky to have her as your best friend. The more that you look at her, though… You bring your hand to her face and part her hair so you could see her face more clearly. The more you look at her, the more beautiful she becomes. You feel a small beat slowly rising in your chest. You take Yuki’s hand into your own. Her hands are quite warm, likely from that intense spell she managed to cast. The same warmth that saved you… you slowly run your thumb up and down the back of her hand to feel more of her warmth. Just minutes ago you kissed her. You were high on joy and adrenaline when she healed your arm, but maybe now that was more than mere impulse. You have never thought about it too much until now but, you are feeling something more for Yuki. You two were best friends and had always been close but right now, you want to be closer. You couldn’t discuss your feelings properly with her asleep but you say quietly under your breath to her. “I think I love you Yuki,” You bring her hand up to your face and lightly kiss it before setting it down at her side. After a few seconds of reflection, you got up and left her sleeping peacefully. You had to confront these feeling sooner or later but first, there was someone you had to talk to. “Aki,” you call to your basilisk companion. “Is it okay if we talk?” “Of course,” Aki hugs you, “I was terrified you know… your arm was severed and you were bleeding out. I wanted to rush to your side like Yuki but she is the healer here. But now that you’re safe and with me, I don’t want to let you go.” You would return Aki’s hug normally but right now you had something important to discuss. “Aki, do you, remember when we talked about sharing feelings and that I would ask you first?” “?” She seems a bit confused but she is waiting for you to continue.” “Well…. I…. uhh….” You scratch your head nervously. You may be 15 now but age alone doesn’t prepare you for moments like these. “I think… I love Yuki.”
>>511933Aki freezes. It was like her body was suddenly encased in ice, and no matter how much she tried she wouldn’t be able to thaw herself. “Aki... “ “She holds, “Aki? Aki please you need to at least hear me out.” After these words, she slowly sets you down and she curls up in front of you. There was the beginning of tears forming in her eyes, “Are you… breaking up with me?” “No! Heavens no! I would never want that!” "Then what do you mean by ‘you think you are in love with Yuki.’” “I meant to say 'Aswell', I love you, Aki, truly but I might love Yuki in the same way…” “Do you love her more than me?” You could see the droplets running down her face now. "What? that isn't what I am-" "I saw you kiss her, openly in front of everyone, *sniff* we never...." She pauses and looks down, "Am I not enough? *sniff* is there something wrong with me?Aki…>Convince her that you want to love her and Yuki equally d20+4>Yes Aki, I am breaking up with you>Write in
>>511969Let us just say that we are confused at this moment and need time to think about our feelings. But we should also reassure her that we love her and don't want to lose her.
>>512022“Aki,,, why would you even think that? I love you and would never want to lose you.” You hug her. “I am… confused and don’t know what to think. Which is why I wanted to talk to you about it. I thought maybe you might be able to tell me what this was and if there was anyone who should know about my feelings it has to be you.” You hold her a little tighter. “Aki I know what I said was jarring and I’m sorry if I ever made you feel that way, just please give me some time to sort these things out.” “I never ever want to lose you Aki, and I am sorry for scaring you two times in one day like this.” “Okay…” She sounds a little hesitant, but she does hug you back. You do need to sort out your feelings, but you can only hope that whatever you end up deciding is the right choice. You head to bed shortly after that. You were both physically and now emotionally drained and just wanted to sleep. You went to your room that Shirabu said was just for you. It was quite large with a huge king sized bed. There were fancy decorations set about. Fine hide rugs, velvet curtains with a dim light of candles in the corner. The burning wax left a distinct tinge in your nostrils as you walked over to your bed for the night. “This really is way too big, but I guess it gives you space to really sprawl out. You start to take off your clothes before heading to bed when you are suddenly jumped on from the back. “Huh?” “Onee-chan I’m glad you are here, now we can sleep together like sisters always do!” Shirabu said happily. Do they? You think back. Lily and you did sleep together a couple times, but you were both like 5 and 7 years old. You look down at the giddy young demon who seems to be earnestly excited for tonight, even if it was just you two laying down next to each other. “Alright, but just because you are so cute.” you pat her on the head, “hehe!” The two of you prepare for bed in your own ways. You just simply change into your pajamas and Shirabu just jumped in after you and nuzzled up close and got comfortable. You wish you had this child's carefree attitude when it came to things. It still amazes you that they young demon lord has such staunch personalities, One was an earnest child who longed for family. The other is a bloodthirsty avenger who takes pleasure in fighting and kills indiscriminately. Just being near her could be a danger, but for some odd reason sitting in this bed with her just felt good. You did want the best for this kid and maybe you could even bring out more of her cute side if you try.
>>512191Before heading off to dreamland though you think about what is going to happen tomorrow. You think you did more than enough talking with the demon lord regarding the way which means Kakuri in the north would be the wisest option. Though it seems Shirabu is eager to get out and fight on the front lines.>Simply head to Kakuri, leave Shirabu here and tell her to go nuts>Head to Kakuri, leave Shirabu here and tell her to stay in the castle for now>Ride out with Shirabu and cause some chaos for Kakuri, make him come to you.>Head somewhere else on the island>Write inLast post for the night. Don't know when I will be able to start running tomorrow but expect it to be between 11:30am-1pm PST
>>512194>Head to Kakuri, leave Shirabu here and tell her to stay in the castle for now
>>512196>You heard everyone said that the snake Lord was... a snake in personality. Maybe you should find out some more before you go to see him? Just because the other Lords have been honorable so far doesn't mean Kakuri will be. Plus you are mentally tired and you could rest a few days. Why not stay a day or three at the castle? That also let's you sort things with Aki and Yuki. Plus you prefer it was one of those two ( or the two of them) the one who took your virginity away and not some random monster.
This works >>512353, but also sent someone to see if Adrian is okay. Otherwise I agree with this plan. Also have Anna and Victoria defeat as many challengers as they can un one day to increase your reputation among the demons. I think the Imps shouls be the ones to go as they csn turn invisible and are basically our ninja. Does this work?
>>512366Yeah, why not?So it would basically be:>Stay a few days in the castle, sort out your feelings for Aki and Yuki. And lose to virginity to Aki or Yuki or the two of them together.>Find out more about Lord Kakuri, just because the other Lords have been honorable so far doesn't mean Kakuri will be.>Have Anna and Victoria win as many fights as they can by day to make your reputation strong amongst demons.>Sent the ninja imps to check on Adrian since they can turn invisible.
>>512384Yes that works. Also:> Have Yuki and Taka bond even more, this time on the Demon Lord money, actually, have Shirabu join in the girl bonding, she could usex a friend about her age (well somewhat, she is a child by demon standards and Taka at least apears to be a kitsune child).
>>512396>Yuki wakes up, no the kiss wasn't a dream. MC loves her as a lover not just as a good friend.>Yuki also gets TWO little girls to play dress up with.>Yuki wonders again if she is dreaming, then both MC and Aki drag her to bed for a threesome.>Yuki happiness has maxes out! Yuki is evolving?"Uh Yuki, why is your hair blue now?"Yeah, let's do this.
>>512384>>512396>>512403Kakuri by hearsay has been only described as a snake both in body and spirit. You thought when you started that Shirabu would be the most dangerous warlord, but maybe Kakuri was the true threat. Perhaps it would be best to remain here for a bit and gather a bit more information if you can. You also needed some time to properly sort out your own feelings with Yuki and Aki. Not to mention the fallout that might occur because of it. You fell asleep that night with Shirabu in her surprisingly comfy bed. The next morning you greeted your team outside of Yuki’s room. She was still but Aki checked her fever and it was subsiding rapidly. “That’s good, let's stay here for a day or two everyone we need to regroup for when we go to Kakuri. For now, though I will stay and make sure Yuki is alright. Your friends seem to understand and all start to turn away to wonder the castle. Anna and Victoria get into another “conversation” about the usual, “So you wanna go blow some time?” “Doing the usual?” “Yup, let’s race to 25.” “You’re on!” They head out of the castle you would be concerned if it wasn’t those two but just in case, “Rozalin could you be kind and make sure they don’t get into too much trouble.” “You say that but is there much I can really do to stop them?” “You can at least defuses situations.” Which was all you could really hope for. There was something else on your mind, “Nessera” “Yes young one?” “Would you mind going to Ryuga’s and checking in on Adrian. I feel a bit bad for leaving him like that and want to make sure he is okay.” “Stealthfully I assume?” “Of course,” “Very well, though that monkey should be able to get out of dangerous situations. He has a knack for doing that.” You give a small grimace at her offhand remark, as she flies off.
>>513170Now then, you sit by Yuki’s side waiting for her to awaken. When she does you have to talk to her about many things, but maybe first we can go and do something fun. “I got it!” “Shirabu?” “Yes, Onee-chan?” “Do you got into town much?” “Occasionally but usually my advisors bring me things I need,” “Well do you know of a place that sells clothing?” “Ehhh,” She looks down at her dress, “I think I know the place where my parents got me this, it was in a nearby town.” Perfect. After another hour you heard Yuki groan and shift around in her bed. You jump up and grab her hand. “Yuki? Are you okay?” “eehhh, my head...hurts.” She mutters as she slowly awakens. She places a hand on her head as she sits up. “What happened?” “You healed my wound but in the process must have used up a lot of your energy. You passed out shortly after and now we are here.” “Oh… sorry about that.” “Sorry? You don’t need to apologize for anything, you got my arm back and your actions made me realize… things. Anyways you should rest for a bit before getting up, I know just the thing for you after a hard day of work yesterday.” “Hmm?” “hehe,” You laugh as you point your finger out the window of the room to a nearby town. You then boisterously shout, “SHOPPING OF COURSE!” The MC today should>Stay at the castle and sort out their feelings (how?)>Go shopping with Yuki, Taka, and Shirabu>Go out and meet up with Victoria, Anna, and Rozalin and maybe blow off some steam>The Joy of Sculpting with Aki>Write in
>>513173>Go shopping with Yuki, Taka, and ShirabuIt would make Yuki happy. And spending time with people helps with figuring out feelings.
>>513185“Shopping?” She still seems to be a bit out of it. “With who? Where?” “With me, Taka and Shirabu and over there.” you held you pointing position. “Me too?” Shirabu points to herself. “Wait!” you hear a yell behind you. You think I am going with her, again?!” Taka uproars. “Come on Taka, it could not have been that bad, and this time you are going with a seasoned veteran. And a new friend.” “Friend?” Shirabu again points to herself. “Yes. Think of today as a bonding experience, and part of your making up to Yuki for yesterday. “ “Alright, speaking of which,” The demon child walks over to Yuki, “I am terribly sorry for putting you into a situation.” Yuki makes her vibrant smile. “It’s okay Shirabu, just be more careful next time.” Yuki then smiles mischievously, “hehe, but you will be the first today.” “The first what?” the demon asks. You lean down and whisper to her, “Brace yourself, your repentance is neigh.” What do you mean by tha-” Yuki jumps from her seat grabs Shirabu’s arm and sprints off. “Whaaaaaaaaaaaa-!!!” The demon yelled in futility. Taka shivered at the familiar sight. You put your hand on her shoulder, “It’s okay, I’m here for you.” The kitsune hung her head low, in resignation for what is to come. You were surprised at first at how fast Yuki bounced back but her consumer mentality propelled her forward. All signs of fatigue were gone as you four ran from store to store. It must have been quite a sight for the locals as 3 girls were sprinting between clothing and accessory stands. Not to mention one of the three girls was dragging their lord behind them so quickly the lord's feet never touched the ground while Yuki was in motion. “Onee-chan! I want to get off Yuki’s wild ride!” We all do Shirabu, we all do… Yuki put all of you through the works as you expected, the worst victim, this time, was Shirabu. “Ahh, we just need a tinge of cuteness to match this set of clothing, the contrast of this jewel matches perfectly with your image!” The young warlord was covered in jewels and was trying on different combinations of hats, clothes, jewels, necklaces imaginable. “How about a dark sun hat… No that wouldn’t do we would have to reorganize everything…. Ahh! Of course! What we need are pink ribbons! It's perfect it contrasts the black but blends with the red! All we need is a proper hair style.” Shirabu through it all stood there assaulted. She was a powerful demon warlord but her commitment to apologize and with you present kept her from screaming. She looks at you and mimes with her mouth “Help… Me…” “Just a bit more,” You give her a thumbs up.
>>513328You focus your attention back now to your energetic best friend. She always was at her brightest at times like this. “Hey Yuki, do you want to help me pick out some necklaces?” “Of course!” You and Yuki look over a small stand, “So what were you thinking? Diamond, ruby? Pearls.” she shakes her head, no it's still a little early for pearls.” She raced through hundreds of possibilities in her head, all while speaking rapid fire to herself. Looking at her like this you couldn't help but chuckle, “Haha.” “Whats wrong?” Yuki asks. “Heh, nothing just though about how you look so happy when we are out doing things like.” “Why of course! Fashion is bot a mandatory part of our lives and perfecting it is my goal, it will always be a joy to work like this.” “Haha, yeah you’re right.” You to Yuki and then down at the necklaces in front of you. “Hey, Yuki….” “Yes?”>”How would you handle a situation when someone said ‘I love you?’”>”Do you want to go out tonight, just the two of us somewhere in town?”>”I am having trouble figuring out my feelings for Aki (really talk about Yuki but use Aki as a cover name)">”Nothing... never mind”>Write in
>>513335>”I am having trouble figuring out my feelings for Aki (really talk about Yuki but use Aki as a cover name)"
>>513335"That... that time you talked about someone you loved, it was me, right?"
>>513405Blunt, but I like it. Let's do this.
>>513405>>513414“Yes?” Yuki looked at you expectantly. Before answering you looked down at your friendship locket you had. “Do you remember back when you told me you loved someone but they didn’t know.” “Y-Yeah, but where is this coming from? We are shopping right now. “I know Yuki I just... “ You take a deep breath, “When you talked about that… you were talking about me weren’t you.” Yuki’s eyes go a bit wide and the ruby necklace she was holding slipped out of her hands onto the stand. “W-What are you saying?” “I am saying that I know you love me Yuki.” “huh,” she is processing what is happening. She reaches back down for the necklace and plays it off, “I don’t know what you are…” her hands start shaking and she can’t seem to get a grip on the gem. “D-Damnit.” She breathes heavily, “I need to use the restroom.” she darts off. “Yuki!” Last time when Aki did this you didn’t know whether to run after her or not, this time, you knew you had to. You were about to take off after her when you hear behind you. “Where is Yuki going, Onee-chan?” Shirabu and Taka are together waiting for their next barrage, but it won’t come just yet.” “She went off on her own, I’ll have to grab her, but you two can head home for the day you have been through enough.” “Praise the abyss!” The young lord yelled as she skipped off home. “Praise the great fox!” and Taka joins her in the skip back to the castle. Now time to get back to it. “Yuki wait!” she was in the distance and you had to wade through crowds to get to her. “Yuki! Please stop!” you shouted as you shoved your way through the streets. She ran down an alley. You caught up only a minute after her as it happened to be a dead end. Yuki had her head in her arm and was leaning into the wall, please go away,” she says softly. >”The reason I asked is because I realize now that I love you too.”>Leave Yuki alone as she requested>Kiss Yuki ferociously>Write in
>>513554>”The reason I asked is because I realize now that I love you too.”
>”The reason I asked is because I realize now that I love you too.”Let's keep being blunt.
>>513560>>513566“Yuki please I just want to talk with you about this.” You steel yourself, “Yuki, the reason I asked is because I realize now that I... “ you close your eyes for a second, “I love you too.” She looks up at you, as you slowly walk toward her. “When you healed me yesterday I kissed you in joy and when you passed out I cried out in panic. That kiss wasn’t fake and my feelings for you now go beyond what we had as best friends. You reached your best friend and embraced her. “I’ll say it again Yuki. I love you.” She seems stunned and her arms hang limply between yours.“It’s true, I do love you for longer than you could imagine, but… why now?” “Because, the more I am with you, the more attracted I feel, your charms, your personality, your demeanor all of it. You and I have always been close but right now... “ You strengthen your hug, “I want to be closer. You always know how to talk to me and help me when I am down. I love everything about you Yuki, it just took me time to understand my own feelings. But now…” You pull away from your hug just enough to kiss her, unlike your kiss yesterday this one lasted much longer. You felt incredibly warm and Yuki’s arms slowly wrapping themselves around you. When you finally pull back Yuki was the first to speak, “I love you, but this timing…” You admit that the timing wasn’t ideal in the slightest but you already talked with her about this. “Yuki I said I could be open to anything involving love and relationships remember, well now I love you, and I love Aki. I want both of you to be happy and so we can all be happy together.” “hehe, how idealistic, but what if I want you all to myself now” She squeezes you tightly. >Convince Yuki to share you with Aki d20+8>Pick Yuki over Aki>Write in

>>513701>>513702>>513907“Yuki, I want everyone to be happy and I think you can understand that Aki would be 10x happier if I was with her.” At least, as she is now. “But I don’t want to lose you either Yuki, so please do this for me.” You kiss her again. You make contanct but she pulls away before you do. “That really isn’t fair, you talking like that and kissing me, but... it would be best for everyone right now.” Thank you so much Yuki, you plant a huge kiss of Joy on her. “Mphmmm?” She was surprised by your suddenness. You hug and swing her around. “I love you Yuki, thank you for always understanding me.” “Hehe, just try not to get too carried away like usual.” No promises, but you were just too happy right now. Not only did she accept your feelings but she also accepted your wish to share yourself with Aki! How could you not overreact, if only a little?After your moment of jubilation, you and Yuki hold hands as you walk back to the castle. “You know…” Yuki starts, “I actually liked you for quite a long time.” “Oh? How long? “A bit after we met,” “?! but we were only 8 years old at the time!” “hehe, it's a little silly when you think about it like that, but when I first saw you I thought you were the prettiest boy I had ever seen. You had such a nice face, slender limbs, and you had a matching kind personality. After our first couple days together I found out you were actually a girl but your entire demeanor still said boy to me.” You were getting red, you remember that in the past literally, everyone you met thought you were a boy. It wasn’t until you met with Yuki that people started thinking of you as a girl. “Hehe, I remember yelling at the other boys ‘she’s a girl can’t you tell?!’ when only a short time before that I thought the same thing. After learning you you were though I thought ‘look how cool this girl is, not caring about her appearance, and rolling with the boy cover.’ I was always a girly girl, I liked everything pink and I was playing dress up as soon as I could walk. So your contrast was so, staunch, striking and vibrant. I wanted initially to learn more about you, understand you.”
>>514009Yuki looks up the to the sky, “Do you remember the day when those boys tried to steal my necklace and toys and you scared them off and you said, 'We can't let them try that ever again.' Or the time my dad came home extra late from work and I couldn’t get back into my house. You stayed with me for almost six hours saying, ‘It’s okay Yuki you’ll just have to stay at my place, for now, I’ll make sure you are safe.’ What about the time you argued with an adult who knocked me over when we were riding our bikes. You yelled at the man and you even helped me fix my bike and clean my scrapes. What I learned from all that was that you were simply a beautiful person. You didn’t need people to tell you that, and you didn’t want people to tell you that because of your appearance, but I always knew.” Her fingers rub against yours. “I then made it my mission to make you as beautiful as I knew you were on the inside, on the outside. I knew you wouldn’t care, but it was something that only I could understand and do for you. Since then 5 years have passed, and here we are, stuck in a strange land together. Over that time I became enthralled with you. I always wanted you to be happy, to have fun, to enjoy and better yourself. And forever I would be with you. Even now I feel that way.” Yuki turns her head to look you in the eyes, “It was slow at first, but now, I love you so much…” “Yuki…” You meet again for another kiss as you enjoy your stroll back to the castle.When you got closer to the castle you let go of Yuki’s hand, you didn’t want people to jump to conclusions without first talking to Aki about all this. When you meet up with everyone you noticed that Anna and Victoria were badly bruised up but were laughing away as they remember the day, “You remember that one idiot that tried to hit you with a rubber mallet?” “Haha, or that one girl that tried to beat me by only slapping my face.” At least it looked like they enjoyed themselves even if their bodies didn’t. “Overall I would say it went well they each defeated 15 opponents and now have a ‘reputation’” Rozalin informed you. Nessera isn’t back yet with your report but you figure it would take here a while to get to Ryuga and back regardless. Shirabu was flaunting her new clothes that were just a fine black and red dress with some pink ribbons mixed with her red jewelry. You couldn’t see Taka, though, she got off easy from Yuki today, maybe she is concerned she might try and collect her due when we got back. Looked to be a pretty average night at the castle and you figured you had enough time to get something small done before you head to bed.>Try to gather more info on Kakuri>Talk with Aki about everything, alone>Talk with Aki about everything, with Yuki>Hang out with Shirabu>Find Taka>Talk with Victoria and Anna about their day in detail>>513914Sorry about the wait, things keep popping up and these pain pills are making me kinda sleepy

>>514093Find Taka, tell her that your little sister now and talk to Aki later.
>>514099You mean telling her that she is our little sister because we adopted her? Yeah, why not?
>>514048>>514081>>514093>>514099Hmmm, you really do wonder where Taka she came back with Shirabu so maybe she knew. “Shirabu, do you know where Taka went?” “Ohh she went to her room as soon as we got back, said something about safety from the fashion animal or something weird.” Sounds about right. You head to Taka’s room and give her door a loud knock. “Taka are you in there?” There isn’t an answer. You try again, ‘Taka!”... … … still nothing. You reach for the door handle and it was unlocked. You slowly open the door and peer into the room. You see Taka laying in bed asleep. Must have been a rough day for the little girl.Roll a d20+2

>>514191Looking around you notice that the window to her room was just barely ajar and there a small piece of paper of paper near where Taka is sleeping. Also, Taka seems to be quite still for a sleeping. Usually, there is a bit of movement when you inhale and exhale but maybe Taka was just so small it didn’t make any difference. Or maybe….>Write in
>>514232"She isn't here isn't she?" The thing is, if the Taka in bed is fake, then what should you do? Both demons and Kitsune could do a trick like this, but the demons seem to be mostly of the battle crazy type. So did Tara leave on her own or was kidnapped?Maybe you could ask Mother or the old man. Do you still have that thing he have you to talk to him?
>>514232Well let us draw weapons and pull back the covers. Also read the note after the covers.
>>514252Well actually keep weapon ready, read note, then carefully check under the covers. Let us do this quietly.

>>514266>Examine the piece of paper without touching it directly and draw your weapons just in case.>Look over the window and under the bed. >Mention that's a pity Taka is asleep as you were going to take her to eat Aburaage aka deep-fried tofu
>>514289We probably saw that on an anime or manga, sure let's do this
>>514289>>514296Something fishy could be going on here. You quietly draw your weapon and walk over to the bed. The still Taka remains still as you close in step by step. When you reach the bed you now see that the Taka in bed was actually a few stuffed pillows. You then examine the paper, but you are careful not to touch it just in case magic is at work here. The paper turns out to be a small note which reads, “If she has zingli hak su Shirabu then kusdf lok tara continue to ishmein drei. The paper was clouded in a faint blue haze that covered words on the paper. An illusion spell of sorts probably to prevent others from reading the paper though you were able to make out at least a few words. All of this was incredibly troubling, but you can’t waste your energy on going on a wild chase at the moment, but maybe you can goad her out somehow. “Aww, that’s too bad. Shirabu made some delicious deep-fried-tofu she called Aburaage or something, I figured Taka would have figured she would have wanted some. Oh well. You slowly walk back out the room close the door and sheathe your weapons. There wasn’t much else to do so you might as well just return to the dinner table. “Where did you go? Aki asks when you return to the dining room, “Just the restroom,” You sit down at the table and prepare to eat the meal Shirabu’s servants managed to whip up. It was actually a fine fish fillet. You had some reservations about demon fish fillet but after Victoria dove right in and didn’t die you figured it said. You begin eating when you hear a running come down the hall. “Sorry I am late everyone, did I miss the food?” your young kitsune said energetically.>Not at all Taka, here have a seat next to me… (be passive aggressive)>Not at all Taka, here have a seat next to me… (be aloof)>Disappointed?>Flip table and shout accusatory statements.>Write in
>>514383>Tell Taka you will oficialy adopt her.
>>514406This will totally confuse her!Let's do it!Also how long until we level up again?
Welp OP felt asleep.
>>514406>>514412She is probably up to something but you also want to throw her off her game. “You didn’t miss it Taka, in fact, you are just in time.” “Alright!” She sits down at the and readies her weapons of choice for devouring a hearty meal, “bring on the to..” She takes a good look at what was being served in front of her, “fu…” She looks up at you across the table. You smile, she frowns. “Disappointed Taka, I would have figured you the type to enjoy fish, though this might just be a blind stereotype of mine.” She “laughs” at your dumb comment, “Ha. ha. Don’t worry I love fish!” She starts eating at the speed of light, and she is moving her body to a better position to get up for the chair. “Try not to eat so fast you choke. You might miss my special announcement.” “Special announcement?!” Yuki blushes. Errr not quite yet Yuki, but no matter. Taka has her eyes locked on you and awaits your announcement. Dramatically stand up and hold your cup up in front of you. “I have decided that I will officially adopt Taka! Though I don’t like the idea of being called a mom so you’ll just have to be my little sister with Shirabu.” “Another Onee-Chan?!” Shirabu lights up at your claim.” All of your other friends appear concerned. “Uhhh, are you sure you can jut do that?” Anna asks while looking for confirmation from another. “I guess?” Rozalin shrugged. There were surprised but nothing compared to the surprise of Taka who yelled loudly, “WHAT?!” “Now Taka I know this is sudden but I just wanted to let you know how much of a good addition I thought you have been to the team so I wanted to make it permanent if possible.” “O-Oh really….” She is clearly jarred as you would expect anyone to be after they just declared adopted but this works. “Well, I have to think it over,” Taka manages to spit out. “I mean I am glad you want to take me with you, but it has been maybe a week, this is too sudden.” “Awww, no second Onee-chan…” Shirabu hangs her head in disappointment. “W-Well I said I would think about it right? For now, we should just eat our dinner as normal, we can talk about this later.” “Agreed” you sit back down and “enjoy” your meal. Taka seems to be a least 100 different shades of confused but stays through all of dinner.
>>514565After dinner is finished most of your friends head off to their respective rooms, Shirabu even waves at you to join her in her room like last night. You wanted to talk to Aki tonight, but right now you had to address another issue right in front of you. “So…” The kitsune remains seated across from you, “What was that all about?”>What are you talking about, you are just so cute, who wouldn’t want to adopt you >So how do you feel about, illusion magic and odd words with papers>Write in>>514412Probably After the Land of Wa Arc, you have done an amazing job of not getting into fights, well except the arm incident yesterday.

>>514637>>514645>>514632“What are you saying Taka, I am genuine when I say I want to adopt you. You are just so cute after all” She looks dismissive, You sigh, “You see Taka a few months ago I lost my family.” You paused for a moment, you only wanted to do it for dramatic effect but you truly did feel a tear welling up in your eye when you remember that day. You wipe away the tear before continuing, “I was taken here by a vampire and in the process, my family was killed. I appreciate my friends more than anything, but I also want to form a family. I am sorry I brought this onto you so suddenly but please would you at least consider it." We got clothes, food, and even friends around your age here. This is ultimately a selfish request of mine, but I also believe you might enjoy yourself as you have been these past few days."Roll d20+6

>>51472522 uh? Looks like we just adopted a girl.
>>514725The kitsune looks you up and down as if she is judging both you and your story. Your game with the kitsune depended on this one interaction. You were barely lying but if she is a spy or informant or whatever she would be judgemental no matter the situation. Taka sighs, “Alright, I’ll stick with you guys for a while longer.” “Wonderful!” You run over to where Taka was sitting and give her a big hug. You have been doing this a lot recently. “Ahhh, try not to choke your new sister now would you?” “Sorry just got a little excited there. Though I am not going to be excited as her. “Hmm?” The demon lord of the castle walks back into the dining room, “Onee-chan are we going to bed yet, I am tired.” You point at Taka, Shirabu questions, “Nee-chan?” Taka looks to you and points at herself “Nee-chan?!” You smile give her a thumbs up before Shirabu jumps onto the kitsune, “Nee-chan!” you and the young lord share a small giggle as you carry your newly acquired sisters back for bed. “W-Wait a minute we are sleeping together?!” Taka says nervously while fidgeting. “It's the rules Nee-chan!" Sisters always sleep together!” The demon asserts. “I’m not so sure about that…” “Ahh!” Shirabu jumps onto her new sister. “Nee-chan your so fluffy! She rubs Taka's tail. “Ahh, no don’t touch there!” “hehe.” For a setting intended for sleep, it was quite lively, but that had to end. “Now you two play nice.” “Okay Onee-chan” Shirabu puts her attention back onto you as you lay down and she curls up next to you. Taka lays down on the opposite side facing away from you. While looking at Taka you think about the situation. The thought of Taka betraying you all hurts but you need to know more before getting accusatory. For now, she has agreed to be your sister which may be exactly what she wants if she is spying on you. You are pretty sure you fooled her into thinking you were sincere. Part of you was. But the other part of you knows that spying on a spy who doesn’t know you are spying on them is far better than her running off on you. “Good night you two.” You pet both Shirabu and Taka’;s heads before heading to sleep. The second day in the demon lord’s castle was drawing close but what do you intend to do with that time tomorrow.>Info gather on Kakuri>Talk with Aki about you, Yuki and her (with or without Yuki)>Talk wit one of your other friends>Sisterly bond with Taka and Shirabu>Write inLast post for the night.

>Talk with Aki about you, Yuki and her (with or without Yuki)We need to resolve this fast, no way a random monster will be our first!
>>514806I prefer we talk to Aki alone, otherwise it looks like we are ganging on her to accept.
>>514803>>514806>>514807>>514811You wake up the next morning still next to your new sisters. Shirabu was still was attached to you and Taka was laying off by herself. As you sit up and rub your eyes you think that the best thing to do today is talking to Aki about the whole situation with you, her and Yuki. “Augghh I hope it goes right,” “What goes right Onee-chan?” The demon yawns as she wakes up still hanging onto you. “Nothing important,” you rub her head in reassurance, “Just make sure you and Taka get along okay?” “Okay!” Hopefully, they could find something pleasant to do during the day, you doubt Taka would try anything if she was malicious toward you and even if she did Shirabu would just kill her on the spot. You get up stretch and head out to the main hall where most of your friends were at. Anna and Victoria were going to rest today, which made sense given how they beat up almost half of a small village. Yuki was working on her fashions and today it seems Serena was her victim. Tessera still hasn’t come back yet hopefully she does soon or else you might have another problem. For now, though you turn your attention to one of the women you love, “Aki is it alright if I talk to you for a bit.” “Sure, but you’ll have to help me with some sculpting today.” “I can try.” You wanted to talk with Aki alone, for a bit you thought it might be easier to talk to her with Yuki but you might be indirectly pressuring her into a decision. You walk off with Aki outside to the main courtyard where she donned her beret and sunglasses, cracked her claws to limber up and put claws to clay. All the while she had her trusty and nerve racketed assistant.How are you going to talk to Aki about the situation?>Write inAlso, what are you going to sculpt?>Something awesome like a Shirabu cutting off the head of a dragon>Something romantically cheesy>Michalangeo’s David>Write in
>>516049>>516061Hmm, you think what you should say in this situation but maybe it will work itself out while you help her sculpt. Aki talks chat you up when preparing, “Did you have anything in mind for art today, I always think it is fun asking others to see what you end up creating together.” “Hmmm,” you remember one of your teachers showing you a picture of a famous statue in Italy made by some famous guy who you think might have been a member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but you didn’t know for sure if turtles were allowed to sculpt in the past. “I have an idea it is a human man. “Ohh really? Like Adrian,” “Yeah but older and naked.” “N-Naked?” “Yes for the beauty of the anonymit- I mean anatomy!” Yeah, that one. “If you say so…” You kind know how the sculpture looks but it was just a well-toned human man so it can’t be too hard to mess up. While working on your hopeful masterpiece you make small talk with Aki, “So how was your day yesterday?” “Boring,” she huffs, “You went off with everyone but at least I had Serena to spend some time with.” “That girl really does love you doesn’t she?” “Hehe, almost as much as I love you.” you a cough in surprise at her statement and you feel a winding up in your chest as you think, “That just isn’t fair Aki…” She smiles away as you work but you know for sure she hasn’t forgotten you told her about your feelings for Yuki, maybe she is upset about you going out with Yuki yesterday. “Sorry for not spending too much time with you yesterday, I wanted to make sure Yuki was alright after what happened.” “If you say so…” She brushes off your attempted explanation with a slightly annoyed voice. Yeah, she’s upset. “Listen, Aki, we need to talk about all this.” “Indeed you do,” you can feel her making upset eyes at you through her mask. You take a deep breath, “Aki…>”I want everyone to be happy and if that means being in love with multiple people then we should be able to” d20+4>”I don’t want to lose either you or Yuki so please could you bear with this.

>>516630>>516461>>516400“Aki I…” you tried to continue your train of thought but it proved harder to say than you thought. Last time you tried to talk about it, she misunderstood and had a small breakdown. This time, you need to make sure she understands that she means everything to you. Your hands work faster and faster on the art piece as you desperately try to think of something in this now awkward moment of silence. “Is… everything alright?” the basalisk asks. “Yeah, I just… I just.” Your hands stop. If you couldn’t come up with the right words then. “I just wanted to show you how I really fell.” you would have to use something more direct than words. You pull away from the sculpture and head over to Aki, “Is something the matter?” she asks as you draw nearer, “ahh!” she is suprised when you grab her, “I love you, so much…” you say before your lips meet. She was suprised, to say the least. “Wait…” she tried to say but your mouth wouldn’t let her. She tried to speak and even push you away but your tounge wouldn’t let her. This time, you were the one that invades her mouth as you press your body harder against her. She looses balance and falls to the ground, but that didn’t stop you. Her arms that were trying to push you away before now relax and are wrapping around you. “Mmhhmm… mhhmmm hmmmhh” she began making small moans as you continued your assault. Once she was fully relaxed you pulled away. You and here both panted heavily,” “Aki, you mean the world to me and I never want you to leave me or vice versa,” you kiss her again. “I will always love you, and I will always love Yuki, please I want to do this, and more together.” “mhhhm, mmsshha, ahhh, hmmhhmm,” You contine your session for a while before you give Aki the chance to answer. “That… isn’t… fair…” she breathes, her heart must have been beating furiously as she was taking large heavy breaths between almost every word. It really wasn’t fair for her. You knew she loved this and using this method may not have been the most open but it was the one that would yeild the best results. You reach up to her face and take off her mask. You look her in the eyes and simply say “Please, Aki, know that whatever happens I will always love you.” She pants, “I guesss… we.. can try…” “That is all I am asking.” You smile and lay your head on Aki’s chest. You think, all you need to do now is have a talk with all three of you and see what happens, you got the okay from both of them individually but when brought together things might get… interesting.”
>>516724But right now you were both in a state of euphoria losing track of all other things, besides each other. As you were slowly waking up from your haze you noticed that this time Aki never coiled around you like she always does, it wasn’t necessarily bad, but a little odd, what could she have been doing? As your senses come back to you, you now notice that Aki’s tail was wrapped covered in clay as it was wrapped around the sculpture you two were working on. The tail kept moving as if independent of its owner polishing the artwork. The artwork itself was… incredible! The large man with the sling you saw in history books was now born in front of you! Every part of his body was well toned and detailed. You could trace the muscular lines of his body which were almost pinpoint accurate to human male anatomy. The face was well defined and the hair was completely and thoroughly detailed. You were in amazement, “How, on earth did this.” Aki’s tail after finishing the final touches fell to the ground with the rest of her body. This must the true power of an artist! Never ceasing to create and working toward perfect that their own body will keep working subconsciously! “Wow…” you said simply in amazement. You looked down at the artist and found that her body was covered in clay but artists make sacrifices for their pieces.“Aki, we should get washed up” ‘Yeah…” she weakly responded. What to do now?>Talk with the others>Get together with Yuki and Aki. >Get together with Yuki and Aki for the mutual understandings, and maybe it will lead to a bit more Lewd>Gather info on Kakuri>Write in

>>516739Yes. Let's do this.
>>516739>>516743You do know that we are 15, Yuki is 12, and Aki is something. We are quite young for Lewd.
>>516845We are twelve too, we are just cursed.Plus eventually we will get bad rolls and some monster will rape us. Better to have our first time with the people we love.
Do people want me to work on the paste for the lewd as we continue or just want me to do it all now? because it will take me a bit of time if I wanna do it right.
>>516954I am a fan of long posts.
>>516954Take your time. Let's just pretend they had sex for now and let's continue the regular quest.
>>516986Thinking about it further I agree with you. Let us continue and bring the Lewd later.
>>516739>>516743You should talk to Yuki and Aki together now that all things are agreed to. After getting all that clay off the two of you, you went to find where Yuki was. She was playing dress up with Serena as you expected. “Now pose!” Yuki called to the imp as she flashes between four or five different poses for the fashion director. “No, no, no we need more, spirit more, zazz more, glitter! That’s it! Hold on while I go grab some” Yuki turns from her set and notices you and Aki, “Oh, what's up?” “Having fun?” you tease, “Hehe, only a little.” Aki speaks to Serena, “Sorry but we need to steal Yuki away from you, is that okay!” The imp nods furiously and makes a break for the door. seems she had enough of the fashionista. “So, Yuki….” Once the imp was gone and down the hall, you closed to door to the room. “Aki and I have talked about… us, and she has agreed to give it a try. “Really?!” Yuki says excitedly. The basilisk is surprised, “You are on board that easily?” “Well I did talk to her about it yesterday,” you explain. “Ahh…” you jump back into it, “This is wonderful girls, now we can all be together how we want to be,” Aki reminds you, “Yes but you have to love us equally.” “I already do!” “Prove it…” Yuki says softly “I’m sorry?” Aki whispers in your ear, “She said… prove it.” “But, I just do? That isn’t something you can express… well, I guess other than… Aki smiles, “hehe, and goes in for a kiss. “No fair!” Yuki yells as she scrambles over to you and pulls Aki off of you, “Thanks, Yuk-” you were cut off by Yuki’s lips now. She was far less aggressive than Aki but all the same persistent. You try to shove both of them away off of you. “Girls please… get ahold of yourselves.” but it was no use as their combined efforts broke through your defenses. These ladies were proving insatiable as they continued to attack. With the two of them working on you, you felt yourself slipping as the more you struggled the more you realized it was pointless and that this sensation actually felt, pretty good, “ahhh…” you let out a small moan before your mind hazes over and your mind goes blank.
>>517113Hours later you wake up to find yourself in naked in a bed with Yuki and Aki who just as you were, naked. You grasp your head as it felt like you had a headache or something. Maybe you banged it on something during the encounter, but you can't remember. Yuki and Aki were still both asleep, Yuki you could wake up, but Aki on the other hand… who was by the way sprawled out shamelessly would take some time. It seems your emotions finally ramped to a point where you were able to spend an intimate encounter with the ones you love. You giggle a bit as you think back to how many times someone has tried to take your virginity. The first one was Aki, how ironic that thought is now. Now that you Aki and Yuki are “officially” girlfriends it might be time to focus your attention back on the matter of the Land of Wa.>Wait for Nessera’s report>Gather more info on Kakuri>Hang out with your sisters>Head out to Kakuri>Write inSorry that took a bit, I had to get some things situated at home

Rolled 11 (1d20)>>517151>>517157We should find out more about Kakuri, you think as you slip away from the bed. There was a tiny bit of light left in the day and maybe one of your friends was able to hear some things since you have been busy.Rolling for passive info gather
>>51729111? Well more than rumours but nothing that isn't public knowledge.
>>517291You get dressed and head out of the room and meet back up with most of your friends who returned after a long day. “Onee-chan! Nee-chan and I killed a snake man today!” “G-Great. Good for you two. Taka explains further, That snake was from Kakuri we think. He was spying around the northern border and was slithered his way deeper near the castle. He wasn’t much of a fighter though and as soon as Shirabu saw him it was over. “”I got to drain all this blood out!” The demon says ecstatically. “A-Alright, did you get anything off of him?” “Only his personal notebook that detailed the general political situation of the demon land by hearsay. But people say Kakuri has a scout run out into the field almost every day looking for weaknesses.” “Damn, if only he had more on him.”While you were talking with Taka about the situation you feel a tap on your shoulder. “Hmm?” you turn to see Nessera who looks like she just got back from her mission. “Oh, Nessera, how did it go.” “More difficult than I would have liked it to be, I had to be careful with Ryuga’s guards flying everywhere, but I was able to meet up with the Adrian.” “And what did he have to say?” “He seems awfully happy to be there, Ryuga is taking perfectly good care of him and it seems him and Raiko hang out on a regular basis. Some he says she even sometimes takes him out with her on her missions for Ryuga.” “That’s dangerous…” “I agree but since he is with Raiko he should be fine for now, overall though he is quite happy and is enjoying himself.” That’s good the guy gets enough grief as it is, he should have some time to enjoy himself. Though you’ll have to take him back at some point.The day was drawing to a close but tomorrow you should>Try and capture a Kakuri spy>Go to see Adrian>Write in
>>517386>Expend time with your sisters and look how to make Taka adoption legal.One of them is the Demon Lord so she could just sign Taka adoption papers.
>>517407Yeah let's do this. We are in no hurry unlike most of our quests. Also we could train our water magic more.
>>517386We should read the notebook Taka and Shirabu found.Also some more training would be good.The day after next we should continue our quest and go see Kakuri or at least spend the day collecting info then go see her.While we are not under a massive time pressure we should continue with our quest of ending this war.
>>517426We can stay a day or two more. Let's adopt Taje first, thrn read the notebook and finish the day with magic training.
>>517407>>517413>>517426>>517455>Adopt Taja legaly with the demon lord help.>Read the notebook>Train magicThere, does this work,
>>517464Yeah, the adoption should not take that long with a Lord backing so that leaves time to read the notebook and train magic later.
>>517464>>517474>>517493You weren’t in any big rush right now, so you can hang out at the demon castle at least for now. Tomorrow you think you’ll look into officially adopting Taka into your family. Also, you should really read that notebook they got from that spy. If you can you should also practice some of our magic just in case things on this island get hairy. While you were in bed with Shirabu and Taka you took the time to ask, “Hey Shirabu how do you legally adopt someone here?” “I’m sorry what?” Taka jumps up at your question. “Hmmm, official adoptions here is kinda like a marriage. All you have to do is have a priest or someone like me watch you guys perform a ritual.” “Well, that is pretty simple what do you do?” You drink about a cup of each other's blood.” “... … … I’m sorry, did you just say we have to drink each other's blood?” Taka hangs her head, “Yeah, that is the ancient ritual.” “There aren’t newer rituals?!” “It’s tradition.” The demon lord asserts. Well then. You’ll think about it over the night.After a sleeping with the thought of blood rituals in your head all night you get up and ask Taka first thing. “Can I see that spy’s notebook?” “I thought you would want to so I brought it,” She pulls out the notebook from a desk drawer and hands it to you, “here.” “Thanks.” You start flipping through the pages. There were lists of towns and their population size. Noted geographical features like craters and forests. The opinions of peoples to their lord Shirabu, most of which were indifferent if not a little disappointed that all their raiding isn’t getting them anywhere major in the war. The snake did leave a small note that caught your interest through which said, “The lord has foreign guests and have been here for a few days, these could be the same foreigners that arrived in Shirokami almost a week ago. Continued surveillance is suggested.” If anything Kakuri knows you are here but so far all this notebook is telling you is that he is meticulous with his information gathering. It would be almost impossible to get the drop on him. Besides that, the notebook looks pretty uninterested. You flip through it once more just in case to see if there is anything else of note.Roll a d20+2Also about that adoption....>Perform the ritual>Tamper with the ritual (how?)>”You know maybe we’ll hold off until we can find a nice place that just lets me sign a few papers.”

>>517652>>517653While looking over the notebook you ask Shirabu, "So it isn't actually a marriage, that adoption ritual is it?" "Well, no but they are similar, in both cases, you are making someone family and drink their blood. Marriage usually has more rituals like the man and woman going on a 3-day trip by themselves with no weapons into the woods and bringing back the head of a special demon boar. They then use its tusks as marriage accessories like rings and necklaces." Brutal. "Thanks for the clarification Shirabu," You pat her head and reach back to flip another page of the notebook but the demon holds your hand on top of her head. "Is something wrong?" "C-Can I be officially part of your family too Onee-chan? You talked about adopting Taka but you're MY Onee-chan.">Sure Shirabu, we can become family too>Sorry, Shirabu you are a powerful lord of a country, I can't just adopt you like that, if anything you would have to adopt me>Sorry, nothing personal kid.
>>517668>Sorry, Shirabu you are a powerful lord of a country, I can't just adopt you like that, if anything you would have to adopt me
>>517668"While I would like to. You are a powerful Lord. If I adopt you now we would be putting the two of us at risk. Also the Snake Lord would surely use me as hostage. And I am not going to stay on this island forever and you cannot leave your people for long. Taka is a homeless urchin with no one else and can follow me around since she has no family or royal obligations. Please don't think I don’t want to, I really do, I want a family. But unfortunately, being a good ruler means putting your people over your own desires. You would be a bad ruler by giving yourself a weakness like me."
>>517688This.Hence why we didn't become queen of the globins, we prefer family to rule over a country.
>>517693>>517688>>517686"Sorry Shirabu, I really, really want to and to me, you will always be my sister, but to do this officially has many issues. I could be taken hostage and used against you, I also plan to leave the island at some point and you would have to stay. I can't take you away from your people." "B-But I want to," "I know you do, but for your people and the land you can't, you would put your own wishes over that of the people and a good ruler means doing the opposite. Plus think of your parents, if you avenged their deaths and then just left their land to rotate what would they think." The demon hangs her head low, she understands what you are saying. she doesn't like it, but she understands. "I really do wish it could be Shirabu, but unfortunately, I can't. "Okay... well I can at least do your's and Taka's ritual!" About that...>Do the ritual>NopeThe vote was last 3 yes 2 no. But after the clarification I wanted to vote again, just in case.
>>517712Let us not drink blood.
>>517712No.>>517718>>517719She's a fucking spy.
Let's be the best big sister ever!
>>517718>>517719>>517727>xd lets adopt someone who's clearly spying on us and using uswhat the fuck is wrong with you people
>>517728I kind of want her to confess before we adopt her. Or to decide we matter more than whoever she is working for. I mean Japanese take honor very seriously and being adopted by blood magic goes way beyond what she signed for when she took the mision.Is also possible we could be wrong and she isn't a spy bu choice. She could be merely be forced to do this by someone.
>>517732>Take honor very seriouslyThen why would she willingly drink our blood? She could just bullshit an excuse and since we're stupid enough to think adopting an obvious spy is a good idea if we do go with it she can continue to spy on us and Shirabu.
>Do it but ask Taka if she wants to since there is no going back.
>>517736If she refuses we ask her to explain why. And she isn't that very good of a liar. She said before that she was in THE LABD OF DRAGONS WITH HER LORD.Something an orphan would have not done.
>>517739"I don't think I'm ready for such a commitment"WOW SO HARD
>>517739Yeah I remember that. Aparently she underestimated us or was a slip up.
>>517741"You know, that reminds me. You told me that you went to visit the dragon lord with your lord and the dragon lord refused to see him. Now, why would a mere street urchin be on a diplomatic mision to a place were they could have killed her easily?"
>>517737Changing my vote to this.
>>517737>>517739>>517759"About that Shirabu, I need to talk with Taka about it first just in case. I think I wanna do it but I should still ask her." "Okay Onee-chan, but I'm going to grab the cup and knife just in case!" She darts up the castle stairs. Time to talk to Taka about a blood ritual, "So Taka, how do you feel about being adopted officially?" The Kitsune scoffs, "I said I would be your sister, this blood thing is just symbolic I am sure." You were surprised, "You sure? It is a blood ritual with demons. there has to be something binding to it." "Hmmm, it's hard to say. Are you sure you are okay wth something like that?" "Shirabu is the one performing it, so I'm not scared or anything, plus I do really want to adopt you." "fufu, then it's fine by me." She smiles. Well then, guess it is time for a blood ritual. Shirabu turns how the stairs jumbling around an ornate knife and chalice. "waahhh!" she tumbles near the bottom of the stairs and the two ancient items slide across the ground. She quickly dashes to pick them up, "Don't tell anyone about that, and don't worry the dings with buff right out." Before the ritual though you want to finish your dealings with the book. While flipping through the notebook again you notice a rune is inscribed on one of the pages. You do not know what this rune does but it is emanating a small pulse of mana every couple of seconds. But for now, that is all you can gather from the book. Which is a shame.
>>517797Is probably a tracking rune. Destroy the notebook just in case.
>>517798Ditto. It doesn't have that much valuable information anyway.
>>517797You didn't know what this rune was exactly but the fact that it was on something from Kakuri couldn't be good. Once you were done reading the book you toss it into the fireplace and watch it burn to completion. The rune on the page burns away and poof of magic follows releasing small bits of mana dust. Now though it was time for a ritual. Once you were done with the book you went to meet up with Shirabu and Taka.Shirabu takes you two to the courtyard and has you sit down next to the other. "You will take this knife and make a cut on your arm. You will bleed exactly a cup into this chalice thanks to the magical properties of the knife. She hands you the knife. "O-Okay" you go to make the cut and when you do a torrent of blood flows from your wrist and if feels like you just cut your hand off. "Ahhh-" you were beginning to scream but it was cut off by the blood suddenly stopping, your wound closing and all pain vanishing. Your hands shake a bit as you set the knife down next to Taka. Shirabu then hands Taka the chalice, "With this two turn to one, by drinking this the blood that flows in her veins will flow in yours and you two will become sisters. Taka sniffs the drink, shudders and indulges. When she finishes her drink her eyes roll back for a second. "What a rush!" she yells as she lifts up the knife to her wrist and copies your actions. Shirabu says the same words to you as you drink. You were a bit grossed out, and when you did drink you tried to slam it back in a futile attempt to not taste it. You eyes roll back as well and a haze fills your mind for a brief second. After that though you get on one of the biggest adrenaline rushes of your life. "Woah!" "With that" Shirabu states, "You two are officially sisters." Taka looks over at you. "Does this mean I can call you 'Onee-chan'?" >Yes>No>Hell yes you can!>Call me Master
>>517808"Yes. And now that you are my sister I can do this!" Hug and tickle her
>>517813Nvm. Supporting this.
>>517813Yeah, let's do this.(Also, will we grow fox ears or something?)
>>517816Well considering we just drank blood. No. Drinking blood doesn't do anything to your genetics. Just like drinking Orange Juice does nothing to your genetics.
>>517818What part of "magic ritual" you don't undertand?
>>517818Well the magic did something to us... and to Taka. We will just have to wait and see.
>>517820>>517821Would have to be powerful magic to fuck with our genetics. Polymorph being on the high end of the spell level. And I suspect that a common bonding ceremony doesn't involve some high level magic.If It does then wow, these people must be powerful casters to throw around polymorph in a bonding ceremony.
>>517813>>517815>>517816“That is exactly what it means, now come here.” “myah?” she yelps as you hug and begin tickling her. “H-Hey! Don’t tickle, hehe. S-stop it hehe,” you will not be denied, hehehehehahaha.” She relaxes in her arms when you’re done. “You can be mean sometimes Onee-chan…” “Well, I try not to-” You suddenly felt 10 small rubbing pressures on your body. This time, Taka’s fingers are the one that tickles your entire body. You couldn't believe how fun this felt, it made you want to giggle like a crazed girl. “Hehe, no, no-- stop hehe.” she dexterously works you, “Hehahaheah.” One she stops you take a deep breath, “You can be pretty mean yourself,” “hehe,” Taka smiles. Now, with that excitement out of the way you wanted to practice some of your magic but which one?>Water>Death>Sun Orb
>>517828>WaterNot the sun orb we aren't that crazy.
>>517828The orb. Yes. The Precious Orb. All Glory to the-Ahem. We should practice Death magic. Because spooky scary Skeleton.
>>517832>WaterWe are gonna become a water benderAlso not the sun orb, is adictive as shit.
>>517833All we do with that is making mooks and have the damn master want us. Our group keeps getting bigger and the enemies stronger so the mooks will be less and less useful. We aldo have Yuki to revive our parents once she gets powerful enough.
>>517837What you don't like mooks? I Love mooks. Just as much as I love this Orb. This precious orb of glorious sunlight.
>>517823>Is a blood ritual.>Is performed with sacred artifacts so valuable the Demon Lord asked us to please not tell anyone that she dropped them.>Both participants have to be willing and do it out their own free will.>The leader of the demons presided the ceremony.And you call it a common bonding ritual - -
>>517840The plan was to eighter use it in a boss battle in a sun orb or death situation or give ut to Yuki so she uses it to power up her healing.
>>517841We don't know how common this is? That could be perfectly normal in this culture.
>>517843There is a reason the GM asked so many times if we were okay with this, there are gonna be consecuences.
>>517834>>517832Time to practice with your water magic. You didn’t know how well you would be feeling after that whole ritual but you felt pretty normal and the adrenaline high you got from it last a long enough time for you to get some extra work in with your magic. You work with your magic to form cascading waterfalls in the air that feedback into themselves. Then you work on basic manipulation as you always do, trying to gain further control over larger sums of water. Roll a d20
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>517853
>>517854You give your best practicing but you don’t feel like you make much progress, you can move the water slightly faster if at all now. But you did get a neat idea and got a flask of water to carry with you at all times. This way you can always have some on you no matter the situation. That pretty much ends your day, though. It was a fairly uneventful, well minus the blood ritual. When you retired for the evening at the castle you were greeted by your two lovers. “I can’t tell you how long I waited for that last night…” Aki whispers. You and Yuki both blush. “J-Just make sure that we all continue to get along from now own.” You scratch the back of your head. “That was never the true issue in the first place.” Aki runs her claws gently up and down you. Paying close attention to your developing curves. You fear you may have awakened something in her. “Now, now enough of that.” You pull yourself away. I am just glad we are getting along well and let’s keep it that way.” “Sure!,” Yuki gives you a big hug.So ends day three at Shirabu’s castle. You got an official sister, burned a notebook and a jar of water. All it all you’d say it was an alright day.But what do you have planned for tomorrow>Information gathering on Kakuri>Hang out with your sisters>Hang out with one of your friends>Maybe go grab Adrian>Write inLast post of the night. Tomorrow is Monday and I generally don't run on Mondays but I will be gone Tuesday and Wednesday so I will try to run tomorrow from 12 - 6pm PST
>>517871>Information gathering on Kakuri
>>517871>Hang out with your sistersWe gotta enjoy those moments while we can,
>Hang out with your sistersEvery time we get depressed we hear voices, let's have some happy moments.
>>517873>>517876While laying down next to your sister that night you think you will spend tomorrow bonding with them. Taka maybe coming with you after all this but Shirabu will have to stay and you should spend as much time together as you can. When you wake up that day you talk to your sister's first thing in the morning. “So do you guys wanna do something together today” “I wanna kill another snake, man! Or maybe 10!” The demon throughs her arms in the air. Taka adds, “Thinking about it, it might be best since Kakuri is sure to send more forces." The kitsune nods, "Yeah, let's go snake hunting.” Sounds good to you, bonding time while hindering Kakuri or maybe learning something about him, it’s perfect.>Go with just your sisters for maximum bonding and speed>Bring the others just in case for safety, but it might be harder to track agents stealthfullyProbably will only be able to stay on till 3:30 PST or so, unfortunately. I got some things to take care of, but I will keep people updated on what will be happening the rest of the day and the next couple days
>>518535Go with just sisters and Nessera. While bringing everyone is safer, large crowds of armed people scare off spys. So just us and sisters is optimal. We are also bringing Nessera because she can go invisible thus giving us back up while not increasing our visible numbers.
>>518548“Sure let's go, but I want Nessera to come and help us track some of the spies from stealth.” The best way to get the jump on them is with a small group and having an ally that can turn invisible is perfect for this. “Yeah!” Shirabu jumps from the bed grabs Taka sprints off outside ahead of you. “W-Wait we gotta grab-” *sigh* Guess you just gotta grab Nessera and meet up with them outside the castle. The imp mother was as indifferent about the situation as ever, “That would make logical sense” she says before following you silently. You meet up with your sister's outside the castle who were already armed and ready. Taka explains, “Yesterday we found one should we head back there?” >Makes sense sure>No let's head to the nearby town instead>Let's wait on the plains instead>Lets check near the river.
>>518584They won't pop up at the same spot, that is just bad spy work. Let's head to the outskirts of the nearby town first. The town serves as a good spying target and probably has cover for spy's to watch from
>>518604“Nah lets head to the town and search near the outskirts. They wouldn’t be good spies if they just went to the same space twice.” “Sounds good Onee-chan.” You head out to the town. You largely hang around on the outskirts but you have Nessera fly farther out to get a broad look of the town.Roll a d20+7

>>518663Your camp out wasn’t all too interesting. A couple merchants come here and there. Nessera flies down to you and informs you about one of the merchant bands. “There is a cloaked man in that group who seems to be shifting his gaze quite a bit.” “Hmm,”>Ambush>Approach as potential customers>Approach as lawmen from Shirabu herself (I mean she is right there)>Write in
>>518668>Approach as lawmen from Shirabu herself (I mean she is right there)Might as well be dumb and obvious. Puts spys at ease when you are easy to fool. And when spys are at ease they slip up. And when they slip up you can catch them.
>>518681“Alright, Shirabu we’re going to walk up to him and pretend we are lawmen under you.” “Huh?” Taka interjects. “That is super obvious” “Yes, but being so obvious might put him at ease. Nessera , be prepared to grab him if he does anything fishy. She nods.” Alright. You take a second to embrace your lawman persona. You and your walk up to the merchant band. “Halt, under the orders of lord Shirabu this caravan must be briefly searched in case of enemy spies or malicious intent on her lordship.” One of the merchants responds, “But we are a simple crop merchants, we have nothing but produce.” “Then this will be a simple procedure.” “But!” You point to your demon sister as they try to argue and they immediately shut up. “L-Lord Shirabu!” The merchant's bow and the cloaked man is a half second slower to do so. You start once again, “I assume now we may proceed,” “Yes ma’am!” You searched through the merchants one by one. Their cart really was only filled with crops and the men were not armed whatsoever, but as for the cloaked man in question. “You sir, please remove your hood as you are drawing more suspicion to yourself.” Shirabu walks up behind you to put pressure on the person. Roll a d20+8
Rolled 18 + 8 (1d20 + 8)>>518749
>>518761You eye the hooded figure and they take off their hood, A beautiful mantis girl was under that hood and she smiles warmly at you.” “Can I help you, sir?” You were taken back by her appearance but you stood resolute. Yes,ma’am please let me just search you for a quick second.” It was only a brief overview to find something out of place. But there was nothing. She too seemed to be a humble food merchant, but then why was she hooded until just now? “Hmmm,” you try to look for anything but nothing was coming immediately to you. “Are we done here?” she asks expectantly. “I am afraid not…” there had to be something but keeping her detained like this was starting to wear on the other merchants. “I am sorry ma’am but I must insist that there is nothing wrong and you let us simple merchants leave.” She raises her arm as if she was going to shove past you but it was stopped by Nessera from behind her. “What?!” the woman yelled as she felt an unknown and unseeable force tug on her arm. The imp mother slowly turned off her round and announced to you. “She is using illusionary magic.,” “Why you!” a mist of mana begins to emanate from the woman and you can now see the clear dagger the woman held in her hand that tried to move you aside. Her clothes now had many bandoliers and pouches which likely contained other sorts of spy equipment and magical potions. You draw your weapon as does Taka and Shirabu. “Ma’am you are under arrest under the pretext of espionage. “Shit.” the defeated mantis said as she gives up resistance. You let the other merchants pass as they were honest and Nessera didn’t detect any magic on them.The mantis you bound and sat her down for questioning. Well, you wanted to but Shirabu looked eager to cut the woman up. “Onee-chan can I cut off her arm at least?” The woman recoils slightly in fear.>Sorry Shirabu we should start with normal questioning for now (what questions)>Sure Shirabu after you cut off her arm I ask a question if she is lying cut off her other>Flay for now, then we maim her when we are done>Write in
>>518866Let us search her for any information first, along with disarming her of basically everything that is not basic clothing.Then let us start with questioning. With us playing the good cop and Shirabu playing the murderous cop.First and foremost let us ask her who she works for?
>>518878You kneel down to Shirabu, “We can’t kill her yet but I want you to act like you are about to, she’ll get us more info that way.” “Alright….” She hangs her head in disappointment. “First thing first, though. You stand up. Take everything off of her that isn’t basic clothing. You didn’t need to say another word as Nessera strips the mantis. “H-Hey not so-” Nessera was indiscriminate with her removal of anything dangerous but apparently her definition of basic clothing was underwear. The now embarrassed prisoner stripped to nothing but her bra and panties had absolutely nothing on them and it was time to ask some questions.“So who do you work for?” “Like I would tell you!” the woman shouted. Shirabu taps her sword on her shoulder. “See? She won’t talk Onee-chan?” Guess I’ll take an arm off anyways.” Shirabu raises her blade and swings down hard. “WAIT!” the woman yells as Shirabu’s swing falls to the side of the mantis and destroys the ground next to her. “You should probably answer my questions or the little lady here will cut you in half. She did the same to a spy just yesterday. Between you and me, though, I think you are pretty cute and it would be a waste, so please just answer my questions.” The mantis turns her head away from you and slowly begins to speak, “I work for Tharja .” “Who is Tharja? ” Shirabu winds up another swing as you continue your questions. “She’s Lord Kakuri’s advisor and a sorceress.” Now we are getting somewhere. “Tell me more about this woman and Kakuri” “I don’t know much myself but Tharja is a human foreigner who just came a few weeks ago and has helped Lord Kakuri since”It seems you and your friends were not the only humans on this island. >Write inGoing to head out for now, possibly be back later, but likely not. I will make updates on when I may return later due to the next couple days being a bit hectic
>>519014Why is Kakuri spying on Shirabu, besides the obvious reasons? Did you have any other objectives here besides spying? Do you have any info pertaining to us or other humans? How many more spys are out here? What do you know of the other lords?
>>519029This work also, who wants to bet the Master is involved?
"I honestly hope this sorcerer is not a minion of that Master guy who is a necromancer."
So, if the Master is involved we should change out aproach. Going with an army is bad but we should get Adrian back and face whatever chalengue awaits us with a full party.Also we should make sure the Snake Lord hears how the one of the naster misions blew up a city using a volcano because it had lost the battle.
I will be back at 6pm PST tonight
>>519029Another human here? Maybe it was one of Mother's previous kids like Adrian, or it could be a hold out survivor somehow. It might be like that strange human back with the goblins someone working for the Master/No-Named man of the accursed lands. If that was the case this just got a lot more difficult. For now, you bury the thought. “So why are you spying on Shirabu besides the obvious reasons?” “Well the obvious reasons and also we heard there was another human on the island and were searching for them.” “Why?” because lord Kakuri and Tharja consider them risks.” “Do you typically have other objects here besides spying” “Sometimes they have us to key target assassinations but I wasn’t on of the agents sent for that.” “How many other spies are out there?” “At least a few dozen, they get sent everywhere though and we tend to work alone to not draw attention to ourselves. “Finally, what do you know of the other lords?” She seems a bit annoyed about talking. “Shiromitsu is trying his tricks as always, though you can say so is Lord Kakuri given my situation. I heard Shirabu was dormant and Ryuga was busy being high and mighty to do much of anything. Besides that, you would have to talk to other spies. Not that I would tell you about them even if I knew where they were at.” The spy scoffs after finishing your barrage of questions. “Hmmm”>Let Shirabu kill the spy>More questions>Let the spy go>Make the spy your spy, d20-2>Write in
Rolled 8 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>523761Can't think of any other questions. I say we make a double agent. And if that doesn't work Shirabu can deal with her. While normally I would be against the killing of hostages, this is her land and her war so she can decide what to do with hostages.
>>523869Damned. Keep forgetting how /qst/ wants its minus for dice rolls. That should've 8-2 so 6
>>523761Tie the spy up.
>>523898You mean tie her up and leave her there? Because she is already bound
>>523984Tie her up and drag her around with us.
>>524049>Leave the spy there
>>523869>>523881You briefly think about trying to make this woman into a double agent. “I have an idea… how about you work for us?” “What?!” she shoots back. “Think about it, you get to live, if you help us you will help us win the war and will be handsomely rewarded, oh, and you get to live.” The spy glares in anger, “No listen here, just because you have me like this and got to ask questions doesn’t mean I would ever think about helping you! I would rather die than side against Lord Kakuri.” You sigh, “If that is what you wish. Shirabu, she’s all yours.” “YAYYY!” the little demon bounces into the air in excitement. Before running over to her prey. Shirabu gazes at her sword and examines it in front of the woman. “So, for now, lets play a game, It’s called ‘You’re a little teapot’ I sing a song and you play along okay?” Huh, sounds like a nursery rhyme from back home. Maybe Shirabu just wanted to play around for a bit. The woman is confused, “How am I supposed to act out what you say when I can’t move?” “Don’t worry it’s easy!” Shirabu raises her sword into the air and declares “Alright, here we go! Ahem,” “you're a little teapot short and stout, here goes your handle…” With that line the demon cuts off the woman's arms, “AAAAHHHHHHH!” the woman begins to scream horrendously as the playful demon smiles and continues her game. “And here goes your spot…” Now the mantis's legs were cut off. “When you are all steamed up, you just shout” “YOU FUCKING MONSTER, AAAAHHHHHH!!!” The woman screams. “I tip you over…’ Shirabu impales the woman through the stomach and with a powerful upward swing launches her into the sky. The sky rained blood in front of you as Shirabu finished her game “And pour you out!” you yelled as her blade caught the mantis mid swing cutting her cleanly in half.” “Thanks for playing!” she giggles with her sword now drenched in blood. “Holy shit!” you yelled at the display “Did she do this yesterday too?” Taka nods. Damn, this kid was scary. You looked around at the gruesome mess and was honestly surprised at how little the townspeople seemed to care. You saw plenty of them turn to face the screaming but as soon as they saw Shirabu they just returned to their business.“Onee-chan! Onee-chan! Can we do it again?!” “Find more spies?” ‘Yeah, yeah!” “Uhhhh….”>Try to find more spies>Call it a day>Travel around (where/why)>Write in>>524049>>524117Sorry guy I was almost done by the time you two voted
>>524122>Call it a dayOtherwise we will end hearing voices again.
>>524122Call it a day
>>524170>>524181After that much “excitement” I think it is safe to call it a day. “Alright girls lets head back.” “Awwwwwwwwwww” Shirabu wines “Don’t be greedy now, you’ll be able to fight more when the war breaks out. If it breaks out.” You are sure she wants it to, but at the moment you want to figure all this out. You return to the castle to your friends hanging around the place lazily. All of them were playing cards and while playing Anna and Victoria were talking about their fights when they notice you. “So I have him in a chokehold right and Anna comes to give him a spear when- Ohh hey you are all back. How did today go?” “Great!” Shirabu skips past “You know, good I guess.” you sigh. Taka adds, “A little messy, though.” “Well, when we were out today we heard some people talking about increasing skirmishes on the borders. Kakuri is becoming more aggressive and Shiromitsu has been poking into the demon land. At least that is what we heard. Most of the people here just talk about how great of raiders they were.” “Alright, I’ll keep that in mind.” You hold your head as you go to sit down. “Are you okay?” Yuki asks “Yeah, it was just a long and messy day…” “Just don’t push yourself, you know what happens right?” “Yeah, yeah..” The voices tend to come back. What happened today wasn’t enough to set it off it seems so that’s good but you can’t help but get the feeling that you are being stagnant. You want to head to Kakuri but he sounds too dangerous now to approach. You might need to make your decision about this war before seeing him at this rate. Then there was also the human sorceress who works for him. “God I hope that man from the accursed lands isn’t behind her too.” Part of you thought that it had to have been, but another part wished it wasn’t the case. “Another human?” Yuki questions, “Like the strange man?” “Maybe, but for now, we need to think about what we are going to do now.>Try again for spies tomorrow>Head out for Kakuri>Make your decision about the war (what is it?)>Write in
>>524375>Train Water MagicIt will help to take our mind out if this and relax.
>>524416Sure, why not?
>>524416>>524426You were starting to think about things a little too hard. What you need to do is relax. You stand up, “I’m going to go out into the courtyard for a bit to get my mind off things. I’ll be back. “O-Okay,” Yuki replies as you leave her there. Once outside you open your vial of water and start to flow it from hand to hand with your magic. Doing so was almost serene, rocking and waving with the flow your body starts to move in a rhythm as you begin to make more complex movements. The water stream is flowing, coiling and whisking past every party of your body as you move. The sunset skies reflected its orange glow off the waters. You closed your eyes focused on nothing but these movements. All other things seemed to stop mattering. You kept swaying for who knows how long. At least 15 minutes but after that, you lost track of time. Your serene mind begins to awaken and you halt your movements while letting out a deep breath. The water pours back into the vial and you open your eyes. To your surprise and embarrassment, Anna was actually outside with you. “Looking good,” she says as your face turns red. “H-How much of that did you see?” “Most of it.” You bury your chin into your chest. “No need to feel embarrassed, that performance was beautiful.” Now you were a different shade of embarrassment , “R-Really?” “Yeah, I wish I could make moves like that when I am fighting.” Your embarrassment slowly turned to curiosity. “Fighting huh, seems like you and Victoria like fighting an awful lot.” “hehe, yeah I guess you can say that. We like fighting so much we fight each other.” “Yeah but recently you two look like you aren’t fighting at all.” “That’s cause we got other opponents, and even then we are fighting each other in some way.” “Competition.” “Exactly, I refuse to lose to her and she refuses to lose period. Haha, its quite a dilemma.” You were confused. “If it was such a dilemma then why are you smiling and laughing.” “Well, thats because for some reason… I am having the most fun time of my life doing it.” She scratches her face with a finger, “I don’t really understand it but, I like this, being here with everyone, fighting, and winning. It’s odd I mean we were kidnapped yet look at how much freedom we have. When we first got here I wanted to tear Mother’s head off but now… now I don’t know.” Anna rubs her hand on the back of her head and thinks, “What about you?” “?” “Wouldn’t you say that this experience has been fun?”>Yeah it has>No this has been terrible!Also, the MC now has the ability to enter a calm and relaxed state in combat. Takes a round but it gives a bonus to dodge for the rest of combat (unless special circumstances occur)
>>524559"Well, some things were good, others were horrible. Me, Yuki, you and a lot of other kids got their parents killed after all. Also if you and Victoria keep fighting so much you might end becoming Oni... were did that even come from?
>>524602This works. Unlike other people we did had a loving family. Wait, the sorcerer isn't our sister, right?
>>524559Some of this was good, Aki and Yuki, helping people, meeting all of my friends. Some of it was bad, the genocide, the destructions of the volcano, parents dying, my legs.But was it fun? Yeah. It was hard and dangerous. But this has all been quite fun. I just wish less was at stake. What with the man of the accursed lands, the potential descruction of this plane and our, and the bad premonition of Yaga. This whole thing has been very stressful. Though still quite fun.
>>524621Ohh... so that's why that evil guy wants us so much, he already got our sister.Gosh darn it, I hope not.
>>524602Eh, this works. I hope both Anna and Victoria become Oni too.

>>524602>>524621>>524656“Well some things were good like meeting everyone and being able to help people out, but some things were pretty horrible..” you remember the accidental genocide, the destruction of the goblin city, not to mention all this started with your parents being killed. “Yeah,” Anna says, “Some things are good some are bad, but that is the nature of things I guess, we’ll just take it one day at a time, but until then…” Anna slaps her fist into her open palm, “We’ll just have to take care of jerks like that guy in the north and that guy from the goblin city.” “Yeah,” You think about Anna and Victoria’s relationship for a second now that it is clear that Anna enjoys fighting like Victoria. “Hehe, you know if you keep fighting like this you’ll turn into actual Onis” “W-What?! No way! We beat up those guys not become them. Wait is that even possible.” Anna holds her head as her mind runs wild with ideas.” “Hehe, sorry that just was just a small thought that came from nowhere.” “Geez…” Anna says as she turns to walk back inside. Might as well join up with everyone again. Now it was starting to get late but everyone was still gathered at the dinner table. As you walk in Victoria yells to you two, “Oi pipsqueak, we sent you to get her 30 minutes ago!” “She was busy and I didn’t want to interrupt,” Anna explained “fufu,” Rozalin laughed “Or maybe they got distracted doing, “other” activities. “Quiet you.” You replied to Rozalin's all too familiar jeers. “So why is everyone here?” Aki explains, “Well we saw you were a bit confused on where to go from here so we thought it might be best to have a meeting about it. “Ahh” makes sense. “So what are our options?” “Well, we think it might be a good idea to head out together to Kakuri.” “And I said that was stupid.” Yuki said, “We still have no idea what is going on up there, plus if there is a human sorceress this is all the more dangerous. If we go up there we should go with Shirabu and her army.” “Yes but that would mean we are officially joining her war when we still haven’t gotten enough answers to make a proper decision.” Nessera was the next one to speak, “I think regardless of your decision retrieving the monkey would be a good idea, things aren’t looking good from what we hear and him being separated and under another lord could be trouble.” Shirabu jumps into the room and literally into the conversation, “I want Onee-chan and Nee-chan to stay here!” she pouts and smacks her arms and legs against the table she landed on. Taka shrugs at the whole situation.Hmmm. This is a pickle.>Stay with Shirabu and figure something out somehow>Head off to Kakuri with the normal group>Head off to Kakuri with Shirabu and her army>Retreive Adrian>Write in
>>524754First we should retrieve Adrian. It would be a good idea to get the party back together. After we get him we should head back to Shirabu and come up with a plan.
>>524754"Uh... wait, there was something that spy said about the Dragon Lord being a drug adict? What? Just os who giving him those drugs... and also he has a Thunderbird just like the Master had a Firebird... that's a strange coincidence. What's next, an ice bird? I think we should ask an audience with that dragon again."
>>524762>>524770Let's ge Adrian and talk with the Dragon Lord again.
>>524775Seems safer than facing the Snake, so okay.
>>524784>>524775>>524762>>524770“Before we do anything major we should go get Adrian back. Whatever happens, I want all of us to be together to deal with it. Not to mention talking with Ryuga might yield so new results. “Aaawwwwwwww” Shirabu picks herself up off the table Onee-chan…” You pat your sister’s head. “Don’t worry we will be back, we just gotta make sure one of our friends is okay.” “Alright… but you're leaving tomorrow right?” Yeah, I don’t wanna go right now.” “Yeah!” Shirabu jumps at you for a hug, one more night with Onee-chan!” “Haham ohh you.” now you address everyone. “We’ll head out for Ryuga’s in the morning but for now enjoy your last day here.” “Rodger.” Anna says as your team begins to disperse “Nee-chan!” Shirabu jumps onto Taka. “Guess it’s my last night here too huh.” She tries to pry off the young demon but to no avail. You’ll miss this odd atmosphere with your sisters for a while but you can’t possibly take Shirabu with you given her station. For now, you’ll just enjoy you last night with a comfortable sleep, hold your sisters in your arms as you drift away. Roll a d20+2

>>524939You think you felt an odd chill while you were sleeping. "Mmnnhh," you groggily open your eyes. You fell asleep with both Shirabu and Taka in your arms but now Shirabu is directly on top of you snoozing away. It was pretty cute, but you also notice staunchly that Taka was completely missing. Instead, a pillow was in her place.
>>525062We should wake up Shirabu and tell her that we should fake being asleep. When Taka returns we should then restrain her and ask her why she left along with revealing to her that we have seen the illusionary note and that we know she is spying on us.
>>525062Punish our little fox>>525102 sister by tickling her next
>>525144Sure, thaf works.
Let's try asking Nessara to help us with Taka's spying.
>>525102>>525144>>525148Hmmmm, “Hey Shirabu….Shirabu….” “mmhhmm, Onee-chan?” the demon rubs her eyes. “Taka, is gone, do you wanna surprise her by pretending to be asleep?” “hehe, sure” Shirabu rolls off of you, and “pretends” to be asleep. At least she was off of you. You sit and wait for the young kitsune to return. She had done this to you before and if your hunch was right this means she is up to some more spying. Nearly 30 minutes had passed but in your half sleeping state it felt like hours, around this time Taka returned to the room quietly closing the door and moving back to join you two in the bed. You close your eyes and wait for her to get next to you. She takes a minute to survey both you and Shirabu before she nuzzles in next to you. You pounce. Throwing your body over hers and applying all of your body weight to the kitsune. “What?!” “Nee-chan!” Shirabu pounced on her other side and you meet your face with hers. “Morning Taka, wanna tell me why you left? Uhh, to use the bathroom?” Hmm, that would make sense, but after what you saw her up to before you can’t take chances. “Listen, Taka, I saw the illusion note in your room a few days ago and I know you are spying on me. So cut the crap and tell me what is going on.” “I went. To the. Bathroom.” “Hmm, wont talk huh? Well, then I guess we’ll have to resort to drastic measures. Shirabu?” The kitsune turned white. After seeing what she was capable of she had every right to be. Shirabu looks at you. Making sure to keep Taka pinned with your lower body your pull up your hands and make move your fingers around frantically. “Ohhhh,” Shirabu then raises hers and meets your signal. You two nod as you reach your hands down onto Taka and tickle away like you have never tickled before. “W-W-W-What are you- hahah, HAHAH, HAHA.. HA AAAAHHA. No- not there- hahaha” Four hands were truly better than eight in this instance but you could feel You assualt never ceases, never tires and never lighten. Taka squirmed under you before she slowly relaxed and lost all tension. Once her body no longer reacted to your hands you and Shirabu stop ticklegeddon. “Now, tell me what you were doing."D20+4
Rolled 16 + 4 (1d20 + 4)>>525222
>>525227“I went to the bathroom.” You cracked your fingers in prep for round two, but the kitsune kept talking, “After that, I reported back to my boss” “Your boss?” Yeah, I sent a message back to my spymaster back home.” “Back home, so in Shirokami which means you are working for Shiromitsu!” The kitsune nods. “What have you reported? Just the basics about you, your abilities, what you are doing here, what you have been doing etc.” >That’s okay Taka, just don’t do it again.>Get out>Kill her>Write inLast post for the night. Be back tomorrow at 6pm PST
>>525251Bind her and attempt to interrogate further.
>>525251Bind her and let us ask questions.Why Taka? Why are you spying on us? Why did you lie to us? What has all of this just been a job to you? Has all of this been meaningless to you? Are we just some tool to be used in your war then thrown away?
>>525251"I told you before. I did give you many chances to stop or back away but now you are my little sister. So I will punish you. One year of being Yuki dressing doll and also no tofu. Oh and you will send a message to your boss saying that you quit because you joined my family.
>>525380This sounds just like an old sister, let's do this.
>>525380>>525385>>525388You know if we were a family, our little sister might be planning the murder of our other little sister Maybe we should take it a bit more seriously.
>>526161You mean Shibaru? Taka knows that even if she was able to kill the Demon Lord, she would not get out of it alive. If we took it seriously and acussed Taka of being a traitor then Shibaru would kill her.Actually we should wisper thar to Taka's ear "Eighter you are a family member or you are a traitor and Shibaru will have to kill you. What's gonna be?"
>>526406We should interrogate her as she clearly is using us. We know she has been doing this EVEN AFTER MAKING HER OUR SISTER.
>>526417Oh we could do that. Is what she expects us to do. But the whole sister thing is what's confusing the hell out of her. Also it would be quite naive to not think the other lords are not spying on us too. We know for sure the kitsune and snake are, and the dragon probably are too. Not to mention Shirabu probably has invisible ninjas ready to kill us if we become a threat. Just because Shirabu trusts us it doesn't mean her advisors do. Is by being nice, adopting Taka and Shirabu that we are confusing the hell out of everyone. They expect it to be a master plan to take over at least one Kingdom and it really isn't.
>>526437Doing >>525380 will make her think that we are an idiot incapable of realizing how much her master benefits from this.
Fine.Whisper to Taka's ear"Eighter you are a family member or you are a traitor and Shibaru will have to kill you. What's gonna be? Also remember that just because you cannot see, hear or feel them it doesn't mean there aren't ninja ready to kill you if you betray the Demon Lord. I may have a couple of imps but they are amateurs. What do you think the ninja working for a Lord are capable of?"
>>526460That works and if she accepts...One year of being Yuki dressing doll and also no tofu. Oh and you will send a message to your boss saying that you quit because you joined my family."If she doesn't well, she is doomed and she won’t get out of this alive.
>>526465None of those are punishments.She can still report to her boss and claim that that was merely to ruse us.
>>526469And the pizza guy could actually have a gun and kill you as soon as you open the door.There isn't a thing as 100% safe. Actually you are most likely to get injured or killed inside your home than outside.Also considering how scared Taka and Shirabu are of Yuki and how deep fried tofu is a kitsune favourite food, yes I think it is punishment enough.Plus we are slowly driving her crazy with the way we act. Jusf remember her reaction when we mothered the Demon Lord.
>>526505Here's an actual punishment.SURVEILLANCE.Do you think there's no way for us to find a method that allows us to keep continual track of her location, or hell, just keeping her in a room that she can't escape from every night?
>>526514She is a kitsune and a spy. She expects to be locked down or to be imprisoned. She most likely has plans for that. The whole big sister thing? She has no clue.
>>526526And that does absolutely nothing? In fact, it probably makes her feel safer in spying if we're that willing to give her such a small punishment after revealing she's been working for someone.I'm pretty sure we could find a room she couldn't escape from.
>>526460>>526465>>526469>Whisper to Taka's ear"Eighter you are a family member or you are a traitor and Shirabu will have to kill you. What's gonna be? Also remember that just because you cannot see, hear or feel them it doesn't mean there aren't ninja ready to kill you if you betray the Demon Lord. I may have a couple of imps but they are amateurs. What do you think the ninja working for a Lord are capable of?"If she accepts>"As punishment, you will have one year of being Yuki dressing doll and also no tofu. Oh and you will send a message to your boss saying that you quit because you joined my family."And"Also, remember the blood ritual we did? You are going to do another one, with Shirabu and this one will be a public event."There, her Lord might ignore the ritual she did with us, but a public one with Shirabu? That's as blatant as you can make an aliance with the enemy, being adopted into their family.She eighter stays with us or is executed in her homeland.
>>526567Hell no.Our punishment better include permanent surveillance or her being locked in a inescapable room along with a search of her items every night.
>>526567Oh that's evil, I love it. It doesn't matter if she is a nine tail kitsune masquerading as a kid, if she does the public blood ritual she is fucked.
>>526567This is the most comprehensive and I am currently writing for it, unless a number of people are unpleased.
>>526567The kitsune under you left you perplexed. One one hand she was your sister, on the other see, was a traitor. You lean down and whisper in her ear. Either "Eighter you are a family member or you are a traitor and Shirabu will have to kill you. What's it gonna be? Also remember that just because you cannot see, hear or feel them it doesn't mean there aren't ninja ready to kill you if you betray the Demon Lord. I may have a couple of imps but they are amateurs. What do you think the ninja working for a Lord are capable of?" Taka’s eyes look to Shirabu. She knew full well that not agreeing toward your terms would mean her horrible and potentially slow death. “A-Alright… I’m sorry” she says quietly. “Good, you pull back from her ear. “Then as punishment, you will have one year of being Yuki’s personal dressing doll and you also get no tofu. That and you must send a message to your boss saying that you quit because you joined my family.” She seems awfully confused and also mortified at your demands, but you weren’t done there. “Also we will be doing another blood ritual with Shirabu but this will be a public event.” “W-What?!” she shouts. “B-But why?” “Because it will be a public renunciation of your allegiances to Shiromitsu.” “But what are the conditions you are going to impose exactly?”>Renounce allegiance to Shiromitsu only>Renounce allegiance to Shiromitsu and let me touch your fluffy tail whenever I want>Renounce allegiances to Shiromitsu and become my slave>Renounce allegiance to Shiromitsu and “Write in”
>>527560>Renounce allegiance to Shiromitsu and you will stay near us at all times. This condition might go away with time but right now you are on a very short leash and we don't trust you.
>>527576Eh changing vote to this. "Remember that I warned you several times about not betraying me. So feel yourself lucky you are getting such a light punishment."
>>527669>Renounce allegiance to Shiromitsu and you will stay near us at all times. This condition might go away with time but right now you are on a very short leash and we don't trust you.>"Remember that I warned you several times about not betraying me. So feel yourself lucky you are getting such a light punishment."
>>527709>>527610>>527576“You will renounce your allegiance to Shirmitsu and you will stay near us at all times.” “That’s ridiculous to expect me to be next to you at literally all times. “This might go away after a bit but you are restricted to a short leash for the time being” “Pfftt,” She scoffs. “Don’t be surprised, I warned you several times not to betray me, so you can consider yourself lucky you are only getting a light punishment.” “Fine.” “Good, but for now you get some sleep, but this time…” You grab Taka flip to have it now that she was in between you and Shirabu. With a death grip on both sides, there was no way she was going anywhere. “I can’t…. Move at all… this is uncomfortable.” “That’s the point.” After a few short gasps, the kitsune gives up and relaxes in your arms. That night you slept rather light.In the morning you insisted on holding Taka’s hand at all times, while Shirabu confiscated her sword. “Is this really necessary?” The kitsune complained. You looked at her and thought, “Yeah, yeah it was.” Your friends were packed and ready to head back into the mountains when you announced to them your attentions of binding Taka to a ritual. Many of your friends were surprised that Taka was a spy. Except for Nessera and Rozalin who half expected as much from the beginning. Shirabu gathers the blood ritual items and has her advisors make an announcement in town that was loud enough so that spies were sure to hear. Around mid day you went to the center of town for the ritual. This ritual was almost the exact same except this time Taka was the only one to drink your blood while you spoke the binding contract. Taka did not say a word and just went with your lead. The crowd was rather indifferent on the whole event, you feel like they only showed up because Shirabu was gonna be there. Taka stood up next to you after all was said and done. “Onee-chan,” “Thrilled,” you answered in a monotone voice. “Oneeeeeee-chaaaaaaannnn” A cry came from behind as you were jumped on by the young demon lord. After dealing with Taka it was time to go but boy did she not want you to. She said with tears starting to form in her eyes, “Onee-chan please come back soon.” You smile at your younger sister, “It’s okay I promise I’ll be back.” You give her a good rub on the head before saying our goodbyes and heading off into the dragon lands.Roll a d20

>>527752You traveled through the demon land down to the mountains but this time, you weren't so lucky as to avoid trouble. You knew about the constant raiding and tried to travel in a way that avoided them but as you crossed the border from the town you hear screaming. There was a village on fire to your left with many siren folk attempting to fly away but they were being shot down by the raiding party of demons. An Oni was slamming his club through houses as a hellhound torched the remains. It was ghastly. Wolf riders encircled the town to ensure no one could run either. One of the wolf riders seems to have spotted you but is waiting for your next course of action. >Let the village to burn, we don’t want to get involved if we don’t have to>Try to save the village>Write in
>>527773"They are Sirens. And I don't want to angry the little sister that didn't betray me."
>>527776Yeah. We cannot go and betray our only ally in the land. Plus we kind of hate Sirens and we feel betrayed by what Taka did. With our luck the Sirens will try to slave us after we save them.
>>527773It sucks but we need to move on. Helping them in anyway would be declaring an allegiance. And stopping the Demons would anger Shirabu, who we do not want to anger.
Well, don't fight against the Demon Lord minions.
>>527776>>527780>>527782>>527785You sigh as you look at the burning village and the raider watching you. You can’t betray the lord that likes you by trying to stop this attack would not be smart. “We’re leaving.” “Y-You’re not going to help these people being slaughtered.” Yuki looks concerned. “Yuki we can’t risk making Shirabu angry and we don’t have time for-” “SCREEEEEAAAAAACCHHHHH” you hear as a beam of pure lighting plows into that small village killing everyone in the vicinity. “HOLY SHIT!” Taka yelled as she jumped into your arms. That village was completely gone, charred edges of the attacks circumference were all that remained of the location. Trees in the surrounding area were scorched and the landscape itself was dug into the force of the attack. Some of the villagers were lucky enough to fly away at the right time but those on the ground that was being slaughtered could at least take solace that their attackers were vaporized along with them. Or at least you thought as many of the sirens from the village started to pop up from their hiding spots near the ground.You were stupefied, “How did…” “Awesome! Just wait until I tell Adrian about this. I hope he says I’m the coolest again.” You hear a thunderbird being pleased with herself. “Ahhh, but first search the village for survivors and find them shelter. I should have killed all the attackers but kill the stragglers if there are any. “Yes lady Raiko.” the thunderbirds dragon escort flies off to scour the remains of the raid. Leaving their leader by herself.>Write in
>>527849"Hey Raiko, how many times did you an Adrian have sex today?" You could swear ghost like fox ears apeared over your head at asking this. But that was ridiculous as you weren't watching yourself in a mirror or something.
>>527856So are we just going right up to Raiko and asking her this. Alright. Hopefully no Demons see us doing this.
>>527866"What's sex?" Shirabu asks, everyone sweat drops.
>>527856Way to change the topic. But whatever, let's do this.
>>527886I mean we should also ask her how things are doing and how Adrian is. But intro with the weird question.
>>527890Sure, why not?
Sorry guys some things came up I'll try and get the update out in the next 30 minutesBtw you are all crazy and glorious bastards
>>527924Thank you. As soon as we have a break from fights we should get Anna and Victoria drunk with sake and lock them in a comfortable room.
>>527926Do remember they are 12. Underage drinking is still bad/illegal.
>>527929Sentiment is still good though. They will eventually work things out and cause more lewd things to happen.
>>527929Even in Japan? Maybe we could age them up a bit.
>>527856>>527860>>527866>>527886I mean there was the girl you were looking for about Adrian might as well get off on hopefully the right foot. “Hey, Raiko!” “?” The thunderbird takes notice. “Ohh it's the “others," she says. You brush it off and spring immediately into your smooth talk like usual. “So how many times did you and Adrian have sex today?” At that moment, the entire world turned silent. You froze in place as the world seemed to turn black and white around you. That moment felt like 30 minutes. Color returns to the world a quickly as it left. “WHAT THE -” Taka tried to shout but “W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-WHAT?!” Raiko’s face turned red as lightning sparked around her. Nearby trees were singed and small pockets of flame were forming. Your friends instinctively jump away from the girl charging herself with lightning but you hold your ground. Raiko starts to breathe heavily and her face flushes in a different way as she starts to fidget. After your odd question you go down to your normal persona, "Lady Raiko how fairs Adrian and your dealings." "He is...fine" *huff* "Things are... alright..." *huff* “A-Are you okay?” you ask. The thunderbird's fidgeting increased as did her emission of sparks. Drool could be seen started to fall from her mouth. “W-W-Why did you have to remind me of…. I GOT TO GO.” the thunderbird soars off ad the speed of light. “Lady Raiko!” her escorts try to stop her but nothing was as fast as her. “The escorts now notice you all and after helping the remaining sirens surround you with their weapons raised. “What did you do to lady Raiko?

>>527961>>527962The private matters but is as polite as we can put it.
>>527963Ditto. Let's say this.
>>527967Poor Taka, we are indeed slowly making her go crazy. Her kitsune score is lower than us even if she happened to be an adult pretending to be a child.
>>527962>>527967>>527963>>527961“Please excuse as we only wished to speak with the thunderbird as she is close to one of our friends and we wished to hear of his well being. Although strangely after asking our question she got embarrassed and flew off.” The guards simultaneously raise their eyebrows, “Truly? Then what do you intend to do now?” “We hope to meet once again with Lady Ryuga and perhaps check up on our friend we mentioned from earlier., in fact… would it be too much to ask to escort us? “Well…” one of the guards whispers to the one talking to the group. “We are going back anyways, and we can confirm your story with Raiko there. You will have your escort. “That is all I ask and thank you.”Your apprehensive escorts have you follow them to their lord's palace in the mountains. During this time your party was able to finally relax, we'll most of them anyways. “WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO? WHY THE HELL DO YOU DO THIS?” Taka yelled as she can’t seem to understand why you did what you just did, not to mention the whole adoption things from two days ago. “It just felt like the right thing to say at the time,” was your only comeback. You intended to go into a full conversation, but in the back of your mind, you hear yourself snickering at how Taka is reacting. Rozalin jumps into the conversation while taking your arm into hers, “My that was absolutely marvelous! You used my technique so well and to soaring results. That is if you intend for that to happen and the poor boy being taken for a ride.” It honestly wasn’t but I guess what happened happened. After a long walk, you find yourself coming upon the palace of the Lord of Dragons and thought to yourself, how am I going to talk with her, and Adrian.Concerning Ryuga...>Questions (what)>Pledge allegiance to her>Try to kill her>Write inConcerning Adrian...>Drag him out if you have to>Let him and Raiko have some time for “things”>Write in

>>528061*High and mighty* we understood wrong it seems.
>>528047Fine forget the drugs thing then. Still ask about the Thunderbird
>>528066Ditto. Although her reaction would have been hilarious.
>>528046>>528047Minus the drugs part.Also mention the firebird that Man in the badlands had but don't mention the sun orb.Also we have been to 3/4 of the important cities of not Japan and there aren't any Shinto temples -_-
>>528072This works. And of course there would be no Shinto temples. Probably a bunch of not Shinto temples though. We should try and find one at some point. Might be interesting.
>>528078Let's find a sun temple because reasons.
>>528082Yeah. That's half the reason I voted for not Japan.
>>528083Okay so...>Let ask Ryuga about the past lords of the lands. Who ruled before her and stuff like that. Specifically who ruled before Shirabu and what happened to them. See if she knows anything about the killing of Shirabu's parents.>Ask the dragon Lord were he got the Thunderbird >Let Adrian and Raiko have some time for “things” and then give him a day or two to recover.>Try to find and visit temples dedicated to the sun cause "reasons".Is that aceptable?
>>528091Yeah that works.
>>528091Yes it is.
Oh I forgot to ask. Will you be doing the same as last time and leave taka with the others outside while you talk to Ryuga?
>>528104Yes. Tell the Imps to guard her well specifically.
>>528104No, let's present her as our adopted sister.
>>528113Why? To make the Lord angry?
>>528118No, to both show we are serious about the adoption and to see if she knows her.
>>528121That would be risky. But if she is faking being weaker than she is, she could excape when we leave her with the others.Mmm... we could gag and tie her. No, that would be too much. No, let's just do like the other time.
>>528124"Taka if you run away, we will hunt you. With the Thunderbird help, got it?"
>>528127Yeah, we are still angry, so let's say this.
>>528091>>528093>>528096>>528098>>528127>>528129As you got closer you turned to your group. We will do this like last time. All of you will wait out here with Taka and keep a close eye on her.” you lean over to express your displeasure with her, “If she tries anything we will get the thunderbird to hunt you down.” You glared at Taka who nodded her head in affirmation.You think you got things all sorted out. “Alright..” you make the familiar trek back up the, unfortunately, huge mountain and incredibly long winded spiral stairs. The grand scene of a lord high dragon attended by servants while basking in the warm glow of the sun came over you. “Ohh so you return young human, what might be the occasion. Have you traveled the land and arrived at your answer. “Not yet Lady Ryuga, I am afraid that I only have more questions in a desperate search for answers. The high dragon laughs, “Haha, wars are never simple dear.” “Evidently…. With that being said I would like to ask you some more questions.” “You may, but know that I will ask my own when you finish.” “A fair trade lady Ryuga.” you take a breath, “What do you know of the past lords of the lands, like the ruler before you and the same with the other provinces.” “An intriguing question young one, though I expect this has to do with Lord Shirabu’s parents.” It did, but you held your cool. “The ruler of my lands before I was an old dragon know for his wisdom. He taught that home and family were the most important virtue in life and that defending that home was the best thing you could do. He believed that in order to stay protected you need to have another look out for you, which is why he tried his best to rule as closely to the people as possible. She closes her eyes, “My father was a great man.” “I am afraid I do not know much about Shiromitsu’s land’s past and I care little for it. “Kakuri’s mother was much nicer than he is. She looked after her people like a mother and tried to negotiate in most cases. After her death, Kakuri started to change from a sweet boy to a cunning predator. Beyond that, I do not know. “Shirabu’s parents were well-tempered rulers, they were well liked by the people and were able to keep the demons in check for a very long time. Her parents were killed by either Shiromitsu or Kakuri as I care little for ill-hospitable land. “Do you know nothing of the killings?” “Why would I in detail. All I remember was that they were calling for a traditional meeting shortly after the old Lord of Wa’s death but were killed shortly after that. They wanted to solve things with taking if possible but there were killed by something.
>>528170“Lady Ryuga, I was curious where did you get Raiko” “Interested are you, I am afraid she has recently found a man she took a liking to, but I believed you were traveling with him. He’s quite happy to hear and If my refined draconic ears can hear him having an incredible time.” You flush with embarrassment. “No Lady Ryuga I just wanted to know where you got her and how you got her. “That is because she has her royal thunderbird bloodline. As the leader and former queen of the ancient Thunderbird tribe, She is the only remaining one after a hard civil fight between the many clans that tore the entire people apart. The thunderbirds have always been in the Dragon king's personal troops given their close ties to our nobility. “Also is there a sun temple I can find?” She is a bit confused, she expected the other questions but this one… “Yes, there is Asaichi shrine between the southern and western lands. Though it is operated by a kitsune.” “Thank you lady Ryuga,” “Yes but now it is time for my questions. “Did you enjoy your time with the demon lord?” “Did they make you do a pact ritual? Those are always fun. Also, what were you thinking making the child your sister though a blood ritual? >Write inI and tired as hell. I won’t be on tomorrow as I will be gone the entire day. Instead, I will make a new thread on Saturday at the normal time 6pm PST
>>528176I did enjoy my time. It was, interesting. What is a pact ritual? We made her our sister for two reasons, one to test her loyalties, and two because our family was killed and we want to remake our family.Oh and two final questions. Do you know anything about a Human Sorcerer in Kakuri's employ? Also how open would you be to talks with the other lords, either individually or as a whole?
>>528176"The time with the Demon Lord was interesting. Yes I did a blood ritual, and if by child you mean the Demon Lord, no I did not do a blood ritual to adopt her. Now if you are talking about a certain Kitsune... yes I adopted her. Is there something about blood rituals that I should know?"
