For those of you unfamiliar with Heavenly Jewel Change. It is a Chinese Wuxia web-novel. You can read it here, it is completed: https://www.wuxiaworld.com/novel/heavenly-jewel-change The Wiki (May lack information with certain characters but has all the mechanical information we need): https://heavenly-jewel-change.fandom.com/wiki/Heavenly_Jewel_Change_WikiLots of things like place names and people will be OC. so I can run with interesting character ideas.First Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3638342Last Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3741978MC Pastebin: https://pastebin.com/eUJQC3YBYou play as Zou-Do-Shai, personal bodyguard to the 6th Princess of the Dershwa Clan, and a Teleship Lieutenant for the Dershwa State military. Last time you came back from your trip, to find work was being done to prepare for the attack by the Moon. You then found out the Mama of the orphanage died soon earlier. You were invited to the funeral, and upon request from Jiang, you invited her too. Soon after you got the Angel of Death God Tier Set, which utilises your Saint Element to buff your own or another's stats immensely. You saw a few people again and a day before the funeral the City was attacked by the Moon! Dershwa City managed to defend themselves and damage the Destruction Element cannon.You attended the funeral, at which point more invaders, this time radical beastmen tried to invade, you, Jiang and the Hunters killed them all. You also encountered YianEyue, who awoke as a Heavenly Jewel Master after a botched attempt to perform a sacrificial ritual on the corpses of her brethren to become closer to her heritage. You have sent her away with the Alpha of the Dragon Tribe for training and safety. However, he killed you after you managed to insult him. Once you came back and he left with surprise, you were then met by Demon Hammer, who has allowed you a small Q&A with him.>Writing for the questions from last thread, next post.
>>3783535"When you gave me that energy, did you know I would awaken with the Saint Element?""No. Show me your Jewels boy."You summon them. He doesn't recoil, however, you start to feel a slight burning sensation across your entire body."Heavenly Jewel Master? You must have a special bloodline. No matter. I will have to spend some time learning about this sensation. I feel incredibly uncomfortable."You have to strain your neck to look up at him. If anything you feel uncomfortable."I was awakened as a Heavenly Jewel Master by a medicine, my Icy Jade Jewels came with that. Does everyone in power have Icy Jade?""No, but it is more common than one might think. I mean, Strength is the easiest to demonstrate, with Endurance or Stamina, you have to get hit, which for most people is just embarrassing. The ruler of Sunrise Island doesn't have Strength I don't think, the leaders of the beast tribes, well most of them, some other places...it's just how things work. Don't worry about it, none will stand up to me.""Is it due to your Element? If Saint is going to turn me into an angelic embodiment does that mean you are a demonic embodiment?""I mean, it does make me strong. Basically I have an alternate, inhuman form which makes all of my Physical stats stronger, and I am a bit mean to people, but I only get bad when I have a good reason to. Long and I think that in a fight, I could beat anybody on this planet with that form. Later I think I will try and explain how different the Evil Element is. I don't know about your Saint Element, you're the first I've seen with more than one Jewel.""I heard Demonic Element users have unique skills, including transformations? Can you transform into a Demon?""Fine. Curiosity is good. I have not chosen any of my Skills. They came already stored when I awakened my Jewels. They are all good, but I would like to have had some choice. The Skill in my 12th Jewel is called 'Gift', twelve stars. It cannot be used on me. It gives a gift to the person I used it on. I don't know what yours is, but it could be shit or be good. It varies.""What were you doing in the woods anyway?""Out for a walk. I needed a break from politics and a nice calm walk was a good choice. You aren't complaining about being alive are you?""No. It's just it made no sense for a Heavenly Jewel Master to be wondering in a weak part of the Cursed Forest."1/2

They have some of the greatest potential of all beasts! You just ran into a baby! Those poor men didn't see what was coming! I killed the wolves with my hammer, and went on walking! Demon Hammer. Pretty fancy. I'll show you later.""So are you my Master now or something? Are you going to teach me stuff?""Well, that could be a small problem. You are part of the Dershwa Clan's influence, and Long doesn't want to let you go. So. Yes I am your Master. I gave you life and that gift. However, legally, you are just a student until you decide to leave them. I am an expert in Heavenly Energy Control, and combat. I can also introduce a prude like you to hundreds of beauties! Consider taking a trip to Miller at some time. I want to know more about your Saint Element and how it interacts with my Evil Element.""R-right. How much do you know about me again?""Next to nothing. I saw you yesterday and sensed your cultivation. I had no idea you had come up so high in the world. Tell me, what was your gift? I consider it to be one of three Skills that I regularly use. I don't mind if you don't tell me now, it's normally nothing that impressive, but do tell if you feel comfortable."Player Choice>Tell him your evolution of Stored Skills including an example>Say no.
>>3783557>Tip on Creation ElementI'm not sure whether to tell him or not. Hmm...

>>3783557>Tip on Creation Element>Tell him your evolution of Stored Skills including an example
>Tell him your evolution of Stored Skills including an example"My Stored Skills can evolve and grow, my only Lightning Skill is now twice as powerful, for example.""Now that's a good one! I think I have some plans already, but I will think on it some more."It is at this exact moment you get the same sensation of the Dao speaking to you."Just a tip, tier 2 Elements are made from a combination of tier 1 Elements, in fact, there are more tier 2 Elements you have yet to see. Following this process, you could mix Elements until you had one which could do the job of all of them."The sensation ends."Well well kid! Do you have any plans for this afternoon?""I wanted to do some Heavenly Energy Control practice, you said you were good at it?""Yes. Go ahead, I'll give some advice."You also think of the words in the Guard's book, you don't dare bring it out, but you can use it as a small guide in your head.>Roll 1d100+129 for Heavenly Energy Control practice, with help from a Divine skilled user and some stuff from the book.

So you head over to the Elemental Research department and ask around for the latest projects."Well you have a choice.

What we all know so far is that everything, except for the sands of the Wastelands was erased from existence. We have a sample of it here. However we think that it was due to a malfunctioning cannon that the sand wasn't erased.

>>3784015Yep, what did you have in mind? Because it still has the constitution of a Heavenly King, you would need something of that strength or the container would break, leaving the Saint Element beast no choice but to go back to Shan-Bai. If you mean force it out still as an Evil Element beast, same rule applies, but it would not follow anyone's orders, and go on a rampage/escape.

>>3784023well we can at least leave it dormant so Shan Bai is in control right?
>>3784043Yeah, but we get to have her explode in random bouts of tiptap. Best of both worlds.
>>3784043No. This is a possession. Just like the Evil Element beast had COMPLETE control until you showed up.

Shan-Bai looks up at you. She wants orders."Jessica. That's not your sister. There is still something possessing her.

>>3784737>Contemplate the advice from the Dao (Write-in for conclusions Zou can make from this)After that mess, you need to meditate a bit, take a break.

Can you only mix Elements of the same tier or is it more free? Can you do it?You think that trying Elements of the same tier would be the best step. You know that the Dao said you had not seen all the stage 2 Elements. This makes things complicated, because they must exist somewhere in the world naturally, but where?You could try Wind and Water first, but you have no idea what it could make, and you have never had the control to use two Elements at the same time, you have never done it before! You would need a Skill to make two brains exist at the same time. You can't multitask like that.

>>3784846>Go to the mass grave for resurrectand we have now missed out on the Sun Di interrogation forever
>>3784850lets jsut get an AOE rez toggle so we dont have to spend multiple turns at the graveyard
>>3784852I mean, if you do get an AOE res, your next turn at the Graveyard would only provide around 8 points for evolution, after this session. Instead of the 200.
>>3784853am saying to make it a toggle, like we can choose single target or AOE
>>3784853we could always go rez civilians in the local graveyards if we wanted to grind out more points, btu for war footing we kinda need the mass rez
>>3784855You're gonna need two rounds for that, as that is two different evolutions. One for the AOE, one for the toggling back to the past single use. It basically means you have 2 Skills in one, so there has to be some difficulty.
>>3784860can we install the toggle and then the AOE?
>>3784860Question: do we need Evil Element creatures to train Enlightenment or can we train the skill without a target?
>>3784862Then you'd have a toggle that does... nothing?
>>3784862No? There is nothing to toggle to, so, no.
>>3784864You need a target, as it is the entire point of the Skill. Same with Resurrect.
>>3784846>>3784850>>Train a Skill (Rain Arrows)well seems we kinda screwed ont eh AOE rez toggle given how many points we need for a rez upgrade, so i guess we might as well train up one of our more important combat skills when facing Moon monsters
>>3784846>Go train Jiang
>>3784874If you never use the Skill, it will never grow. You are not screwed out, it will just take a little longer. Of all the questions you asked, you never asked if you could just separate people, like, take one at a time out of the pile a far enough distance away to not be in range of Resurrect. It would mean you could only do about 50 per shot, but hey. It's better than nothing.

Then I can move the beast out of Shan-Bai-""Where is she.""With Jessica.""That bitch didn't even tell me! I can't trust you, my sister or my sister!""You can trust me dammit! I just need some other Evil Element monsters and I can fix this. I can try to desummon the beast entirely.""Why can't you do it now?""Stored Skill limits. Give me some time.""Whatever. I'm going to Jessica now."She leaves.Player Choice>Follow her to the Elemental Research department>Train on your own

Wanna die?""I've told you basically everything! My Skills can grow alright! Demon Hammer gave me the ability to do so!""Who?""He's kind of like my Master. Prime Minster of Miller City.""Wow. That must be fun."She picks up the pace. You try other ways to speak, but you can tell it is just making her more irritated. You both make it to the Elemental Research department."WHERE THE HELL IS MY SISTER?!""Oh shit! I mean. Princess. Which one?""Jessica, the smart one, the one with answers better than this bastards!""H-her office!"He ducks out of the way, where Jiang walks on, you try to and are stopped by him."Dude what the hell? Jessica specifically didn't tell her to stop this from happening. Dammit, just go there and suck it up. Use a Life Skill or something."He lets go, leaving you to face your doom.You find Jessica and Jiang facing each other. The possessed body of Shan-Bai following Jessica. Papers in her hands. Halo glowing."JESSICA! What the hell did Zou do to our sister!"She runs over and knocks the papers out of Shan-Bai's hands. They fall to the floor. Jessica sees you and looks royally pissed."An improvement. I think. Shan-Bai. Please step away. This is a bit dangerous.""This was not ordered by the enlightened one.""What?!"Jiang turns around to you. Grabbing your collar."Enlightened one my ass!"This time, Shan-Bai moves on her own accord. Letting go if the papers."Please step away from my Master.""Oh you what? Master? I own him! He's mine! I am your double Master!"You think now might be the time to intervene. You can sense something happening to the beast inside Shan-Bai. Something about prime directive. Time to give the beast a name.Player Choice>Write in for a name, I plan to keep it around after the solution for shenanigans.
>>3784943Actually i think i might vote for Ruach, part of Ruach Elohim (meaning Spirit of God) since this beast is metaphysical and pretty much and angelic spirit
>>3784951BOOOO. Not even spelt correctly! Sephirah!
Voting for 10 mins longer, maybe even longer, as I might need to eat something. Cod sounds nice.
>>3784943Better idea:>BixieA Chinese beast, considered a protector of Feng Shui practitioners that wards off evil.
>>3784961There are two different types of Pixiu, a male and a female. The physical difference is seen by their antlers. The one with two antlers is the female of the species and is called a "Bìxié" and the one with one antler is the male of the species and is called a "Tiān lù".Nice>>3784956Not sure on the Etymology of this. Is it just a ploy to get Jiang on your side with an insulting name?>>3784957Could also mean "Wind/Air" rather than spirit, could link to your Elements.My vote is for Arariel, or Angel of the Waters of the Earth. Fits with Shan-Bai's Water Element.
>>3784965>Not sure on the Etymology of this. Is it just a ploy to get Jiang on your side with an insulting name?No, I just wanted to get a word in before a biblical name got in...I then had a much better idea.If we make another one to go with it we can now call that "Tian lu".
>>3784968I mean. You do have 19 beasts to enlighten left. So I can do that. Maybe giving only 5 a name for now. I do not want to keep track of that.
>>3784968Sure. You have 19 left to convert. I can spare one.
>>3784973Sorry. My computer lagged a bit it seems.I have to go eat now. Be back for 18:40 pm BST. Thanks for playing! Voting will be open until that point.
>>3784978btw can we just go explore the wilds during the evening to try to find Evil Element Beasts? i imagine being Saint element would make it easier for us to sense them
>>3784943What about Ahura? In Zoroastrianism, it's a class of deities of order opposite to the Daevas, divinities of chaos and disorder.From the same linguistic root comes both Aesir and Asura. It seems fitting as our first pet Saint Beast.
>>3784984I mean sure. You would have to roll for it, and you would have a higher DC in the Wastelands, but stronger monsters, but sure!>>3784986Taken note of. Shortlist of 5 names, not sure which one is going to be first>Ruach>Bixie>Ahura>Arariel>SephirotGod Cod and cooked tomato is good. No fish and chips sadly. Too hot for that, but fish none the less!
>>3784995If we want to associate her with her host's Water theme, there's Anahita (a.k.a. Sarasvati) too.Ceto and Charybdis are great if we want to take into account Water, divinity and her monstrous aspects.

>>3785033>Bixie"Bixie, please back off for now. Just do what she says. She is my boss.""Yes Master."You can sense through the bond that the two of you share that the beast, who now thinks of themselves as female, you're not sure why, but you can tell she feels extraordinarily happy."Hmmph! What's your big idea? Shimmying up on my turf. Even Zou said I'm his boss.""I apologise."It's weird seeing the once demonic girl saying all of this, but you have a plan."Jessica. Where can I see some Evil Element beasts to fight?""Wastelands. Do not tell me you are going to-""I need to! Do you want your sister back or not?""She is a good porter...ah hell, I. As the Marshal of the Space Force. Give you one days leave, tomorrow. Use it wisely Lieutenant.""Oh hang on a second! Somehow now you get to order him about? Why. No-one tells me anything!""Consider it punishment for leaving the Palace, a day after an attack. For a...what, a date?""A funeral!""Yeah right, special dress and everything."You can see some of the surrounding research staff start fast-walking away, they do not want to be here for this."Damn you!""I mean, you'll also loose control over him as you become stronger, as the need for bodyguards becomes less and less."Jiang has no comeback for that."Fine! Zou! I'm training with you right here and right now! I'm coming with you tomorrow as well! I want to see this Skill in action."She summons her staff."Endurance training, you'll need it."A fire needs time to run out of fuel.

She's only 14 so I don't think she realises the brevity of the things at stake here. Could you tell Bixie she can trust me as well?""Bixie, if Jessica tells you to do something reasonable, treat it like an order.""Yes Master."You leave to go to bed. You need a rest.>You have run out of time!>Sleep>Start of the 83rd dayYou wake up to Jiang, in full gear, telling you to get up early. You do so. Using Water to clean yourself.

Her body has been in a coma for weeks!""Bixie, summon your Jewels."Ten pairs of Jewels are summoned."I will fight to protect you, Master, and Jiang.""There you go, Heavenly King and a Saint beast, what could be better.""Sis, why can't you come?""Busy with Moon stuff.

I would like to know what will happen to me?""Well, you will be summoned to a special dimension, like the fish will now."You think for a second, and the Saint Fish which were swimming in the sand below you disappear."Then, will I lose my body?""I assume so. You are merely in possession of Shan-Bai's body aren't you?""Master. This is mine? I do not want to be body-less. Please do not leave me alone with the fish.""Well, maybe in the future, I can find a body for you, but for now. Please have patience.""Y-yes Master."Jiang speaks up."What if Shan-Bai's body disappears as well?""Then we will have a small problem, I don't think it will become one however.""Alright."You all walk home, Bixie's strength keeping the weaker monsters at bay.When you arrive back to the wall, Jessica is waiting with a medical team, and some supplies."Sup. All done?""I think so, let's do this.""Please Master don-!"Bixie's voice disappears. You can sense 20 spirits, most are quite small, with one incredibly large one. You cannot talk or hear any of them. Perhaps you should give the Fish a collective name, as they will act as a school, not individually. For the first time, there was some emotion. You can care about that later.Shan-Bai falls unconscious. Jiang and Jessica catch her. You see no evidence of the Halo or glowing eyes. You've done it. Jessica speaks up."Alright. I and some others will tend to her. Zou, as you are not a licensed doctor, and neither are you Jiang. Please leave. I happen to have a Doctorate in Medicine. So be off with the both of you. Come back tomorrow. I will assure you she won't die. There are some other problems though. Mainly. This will be the second time of using her body in her entire life of more than 90 years.

I know you must have been busy with...that, in the past few days, but it would be great if you could turn up for work. Otherwise I'll have to take away some of your salary. We have a report from our acquaintances in Miller that another Pod has landed. I want you to provide air support. You and Shwei-Fa are our only Teleship Pilots. We want an opportunity to try some new tech out, it's a bit rudimentary, bit it can get the job done. Get yourself over here before I teleport you myself.""Yes Sir."You are wondering about Shan-Bai, but an attack from the Moon is quite serious. You get your gear on and run over to the hanger."Sir, get in quickly. I have everything prepared for take off, do you want to fly or shoot? We have a combined Spatial-Water armament which works by teleporting ice and water inside of the body of the target."Player Choice>Take control of the wheel and teleportation mechanisms, this will give you control of which enemies for Shwei-Fa to attack and the control of evacuation manoeuvres. You would roll/choose for the encounter.>Take control of the weapon's systems, this would mean you would be responsible for attacking directly, however not for the encounter roll or evacuation, I would do that. The Cannon has the strength of a 6 Jewel Elemental Master, with a 1d7560 per attack. For the first 10 attacks the cost is free, but afterwards, it will cost 100 HE of your own HE to use. The same rule applies to Shwei-Fa, who has a Heavenly Energy level of 4 being an Elemental Jewel Master.
>>3791413>Take control of the wheel and teleportation mechanisms, this will give you control of which enemies for Shwei-Fa to attack and the control of evacuation manoeuvres. You would roll/choose for the encounter.
Rolled 518 (1d7560)>>3791425I run for a little longer, but, if you appear to be the only one playing at the moment. The quest will stop and begin again at 16:00 pm BST.>Take control of the wheel and teleportation mechanisms>For reference. Shwei-Fa has 140 HE.The two of you get in your respective seats and get ready to go. The coordinates are set and you teleport the ship and put it into hover mode.When you check your view. You see a massive battle happening to the east of the country, a force even larger than the one which attacked Dershwa.You can see about 8 beasts which are very large, metal slimey behemoths, all walking on two legs. Then maybe 40 medium size humanoids, and a few hundred weaker ones. It's hard to tell which target to go for first at this height. You can tell You'll just have to shoot and hope you hit something. "SweiRoll 3d8 for which behemoth you hit, mode of 3. Then I am rolling 1d100 for Zhong Chizui, DC 90.1. Fire2. Water3. Earth4. Wind5. Chaos an Element you have not seen yet.6. Lightning7. Darkness8. NatureRolling 1d7560 best of three for damage as Shwei-Fa is shooting. Each behemoth has roughly 20000 STA. 10 rounds remaining after this shot due to Shwei-Fa's HE total.
Rolled 10 (1d100)
>>3791440>Roll 3d8 for which behemoth you hit, mode of 3. The quest will be stopping now, for it to restart at 16:00 pm BST, when others might join. I am not sure of anyone in Florida is a player here, but they won't show up today.
Rolled 6, 2, 2 = 10 (3d8)>>3791440could we use our rain arrows to attack or do we need the snipe evolution to do that?
Rolled 5, 5, 4 = 14 (3d8)>>3791440
Rolled 7, 6, 5 = 18 (3d8)>>3791440
>>3791463Forget snipe you have homing abilities. However, to attack with them, you would need to stop piloting and expose the internals of the ship to the cold low pressure environment of this height. Whilst you are partially resistant to the cold, your copilot is not. If either of you die, then the ships isn't actually flyable. It needs separate Spatial Element to to different tasks, after all, who says the spare Heavenly Energy for fuel and attacking is on the ship itself?Btw the vote for a crappy MS image is open all afternoon.
>>3791469if one of the behemoths was Evil element we would totally try to enlighten it wouldnt we?
>>3791475The situation demands nothing less.
Rolled 6, 3, 4 = 13 (3d8)>>3791475I mean yeah, but they haven't been able to copy any stage 3 Elements yet, only stage 2 and below. Not only that thanks to the Destruction Element, if something like that were here, then your Skill use would be destroyed by it, rendering it ineffective.>You shoot at the Chaos beast. You see now that the vast majority of the troops have the Destruction Element on all their bodies, but not one of them. You see Shwei-Fa fire at this one, and it does minor damage. You see that parts of his body are phasing in and out each other, some parts disappear. The people he touches start to rip themselves apart. It's terrifying! You know that these things copy Elements, which one is he? He has the erratic nature and spread of Wind, but his body flows like Water. What on earth?You see that the attack didn't really phase him. You feel like if you want to have a good impact, you need to kill one of the behemoths."Sir! Due to the presence of the Lightning and Wind giants I suggest we remain at this height, it will give us less choice of target, but we will be out of range of attack.""Thank you Officer. I'll take your advice.">After 3 more mini-rounds, the two sides will be rolling 1d100 for a cumulative round victory, this is mini round 1 of 4, 2 of 4 coming up next.>Next mini round>Roll 3d8 mode of three for which behemoth you hit>Rolling 1d7560 for Shwei-Fa's attack, 9 remaining after this one.

>>3791520Cannons this time are specked for Water and Spatial. Moon peeps remember.
>>3791523oh if the cannons are doing water damage then i vote for hitting the Fire guy
>Fire>6030 Damage doubled to 12060!You see the Fire behemoth start to steam profusely! She hit it! It has been severely weakened! You see that its personal Destruction Element has all dissipated as well."Sir? I think we can take it out with one more shot, the ground troops should be able to harm it now that shroud is gone. Permission to fire again at it?""Granted!">Roll 1d7560 best of three for damage, if you deal more than 3970, it will die. If it survives, it will take one more round for it to die. Mini-Round 4 of 4.

Rolled 13 (1d100)>>3791550>3062 doubled to 6124>It survives! End of round.>555 hint on something of my choice.Just as Shwei-Fa is about to fire. You get that odd sensation again of the Dao0 However, it does not look like an old man, but a very young, and crazy looking one."HELLO. YOUR TIP IS THAT DESTRUCTION ENERGY IS UNIQUE TO ONE PERSON, YOU CAN'T MAKE IT BUCKO! BYBYE!"You snap back to attention. You see that the massive pillar flame and metal is a lot smaller, and the other soldiers start to converge on it. However, you can see the other behemoths working. This is a pivotal part of the battle.>End of the round>Roll 1d100 best of ONE for your side's outcomeRolling 1d100 for the Moon-Slime's outcome. Failure will result in you being attacked by the Lightning Behemoth, you are able to dodge, but we'll get there when we get there.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>3791564ok so destruction unlike creation is completely unique to the moon nutjob, cant be created by any element combination
>>3791567sooo what about a tie?
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>3791564>>3791567Huh. Let's try again.>Roll 1d100 best of ONE!
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>3791570
>>3791572>They got the NAT 1, however, one beast remains standing, it will attempt to RUN.>72You see something happening. The destruction Element around almost all of the Behemoths starts to activate in a way you've never seen before! You see it start to eat at the metal. Erasing the flesh, until nothing remains of the beast. Even all the way up here. You can hear their almost human-like screams. What the hell.The soldiers mainly ignore that. They keep attacking the Fire Behemoth until it dies."Sir! The-the wispy one's still alive and it's running away! After it!"As you take control, you use a lot of Heavenly Energy to chase after it. You are now low down enough to attack with something of your own."Officer! Take the controls! I can do more damage to it by my own attacks at this range!"You get out of your seat, open the doors, and consider your options as the massive glitch runs to his Pod as fast as he can. You do not know what he can do.Player Choice>Write-in for how to attack it, you will get no help in it's weaknesses or strengths apart from the fact it is not susceptible to the normal weakness of a Moon-Slime.
>>3791580>Fully boosted Rain arrows, leave just about 1000 HE in the tank, turn on the ice piercing and homing effects
Rolled 10206 (1d20000)>>3791586Well here's the thing, with you teleporting and flying the ship, you don't have much Heavenly Energy left if you want to teleport home. So...this could be interesting.Also I'm not sure how boosting is gonna work with this. I'll try muh best.You are severely over-killing this thing if you do this. You have yourself a maximum attack in the Heavenly God range....this means the world will be permanently scarred by this, be warned, your Master may get a antsy with that fact. >Roll 25d226380, best of one, because there is no need for 3.Rolling 1d20000 for COORD>1000 HE left for attacks.

>>3791599i might have underestimated how much damage we could do with this, in teh future can we jsut give you a dice range and you tell us what we do to get that dice range with a skill?
>>3791608>3791608What like rolling 1d100 best of three and I figure out what that actually means?
>>3791608I don't know, I think this is very funny to look at.
>>3791609yeah nvm, its jsut gettign kinda weird keeping track of what dice fit in what power range, like i forgot our raindrops now had sucha stupidly high modifier and our boosting was so insane, like i dont think i can track teh math you used for those dice numbers. Ill jsut keep the astebin oen form now on to try to keep track fo what we do. I was trying to angle for something in the 100000 range since i knew they had stats roughly around 20000
>>3791609also when i wrote leave 1000 HE in the tank i meant that after boosting lets down and we aint fighting we have at least 1000 HE left so we can TP home
>>3791615Well. Tping back home takes a full third of your current HE total. So...yeah, think like 50 HE per mile? This place is roughly 300 miles away from Dershwa. Then there's some efficiency to lower the cost. All good stuff. >>3791614Rule of Wuxia #1: There is no such thing as a power range, there is only the top, and you.>>3791613Oh Boy wait till we get in the base millions of stats! >You win!You start using the Skill, silver light emanating from you as thousands of ice drops form and shot out around you. You see the beast shatter, and a massive ravine starts forming in the desert surrounding the Country. It starts to fill up with Ice. Until a blue and white streak can be visible from space.You get back in the seat."I'm taking us back home. Don't tell anyone that was me. the King is probably going to give me hell and back for that. I probably just changed the weather permanently back there.""Yes Sir..can you tell me how I can do something like that?""Cultivate, and get 12 Star Spatial Skills. That's a good start.""Can I have help with cultivating?""Sure. I need a break though. So nothing now."You teleport the ship back home. You feel no Heavenly Energy in you until your technique helps you start to recover it. However. You can feel it is slightly slower, the Destruction Element used in the first attack and this one has actually lowered the Heavenly Energy in the atmosphere to cause an impact.You get out. Change the normal way, and get think about you want to do in the evening.

She gives you a Diamond charm. "It will block one attack, just go in there and ask as many questions as you like."You walk in and see a normal Shan-Bai, however, she looks bed bound."Oh!

You don't think you'll get very far by talking. You look around and see a huge amount of medical equipment built into the walls. You see a breathing mechanism, something for the intestinal track, something for the heart, something for almost every organ."How are you feeling?""Bad. No. Can. Move. No. Can. See. An. I. Mals."It seems she can't hold a long conversation, as she stops to gather her breath and think."How's the rehab going?"Jessica interrupts through a speaker in the wall."Ok. We might want your help though, not for you, but for your buffing and boosting. We would like you to support one of the doctors and sis. 'Bzzzrtk!'" The sound cuts off. You see Shan-Bai looking at you with a lot more hope in her eyes."Please. Help? Help? I. Want. To-*cough* See. My *cough*"Then starts a coughing fit. You hear beeping galore from the machines behind her. Then she calms down."Next. Please."1/2

DON'T KNOW! *cough* *cough*"You hear more beeping."Zou get out of there! Shang-Dwei put some sedatives in her her vitals are going mad! Get a team in there as soon as possible!"You see Ice and Water forming where her limbs are, then shift back. You see a small storm forming, the Water ruining some of the electrics. You get out of there and avoid a team of about 4 Life users and one Darkness user head in with Jessica."I'll call you when I need you. Get some rest."You head back to your room. You try to imagine that. Being imobile for 90 years, then gaining the power of a Heavenly King in a moment.

Image is the best I could come up for the Palace. It is showing the beastman tribes as is shown in the Moon-War time. The building to the side is the Consolidated Equipment Master's Palace. It has an underground of course. The main building is mainly a facade, the sides and back are both grey to mix in with the massive steel wall bordering the Wastelands. The front is Amethyst for electricity. It has a glass ceiling, a pentagon, meant to look good for the public. As this place is a dictatorship, the Palace is meant to look angular. The ovals are massive Cat's Eye Jade, containing the enormous amount of space this place really holds. It is like a second City in there. >HE is now 2625>Go to Mars"Sure. What's one more alien race to get mad at us?""A shuddap you. I did some more tests, and I am 99 percent sure there are no aliens apart from maybe some bacterial life.""Bacterial? What's that?""Wha? Bacteria. Like. Germs and shit. How much have you learnt from the Elemental Research department anyway?""Not much. I am 14 and I didn't have the money or opportunity for education.""Well. Maybe getting you on an astrophysics course or a Life Element course would be a goodun. I am fairly sure there are no animals. Happy?""Sure. What about the 1 percent?""Minute evidence of an Element I have not seen before, mainly that the planet is cold on the surface, irradiate-sorry, toxic beyond belief, but the core? That could be a lot warmer, and not in the normal way. I'll explain later but we were using comparisons from the Moon and the slime that hatched from the egg, it's from that we got the cannon. Anyway. Get your suit on."You get changed, apparently due to technological constraints, you can't swap this one on. To take people beyond the Moon requires a bit more Spatial support.

Your seat is lowered below. The stronger cannon having different requirements.You feel the ships gravity change, until some mechanisms fall in to place, meaning gravity centres again. You look and see a massive dirt red orb, meteor impacts and mountains and hills. It's not as pure coloured as the Moon, but it is still astonishing.

All you see are frequent volcanoes, or perhaps inactive or dormant ones. One of the mountains looks more pyramid like? However, one thing is clear. You can see no life, no monsters. Nothing. There is evidence that life could have been here. The volcanoes could provide a source of heat, or acted as islands as any seas evaporated, but there is nothing now."It is dry, barren and empty. Do we have equipment to explore it on foot?""Back home we do. What do you think about it all?">Player Choice>Write-in for what Zou feels about a barren Mars, not only for his own planet, but for all the life that could have been there. His feelings in discovering an empty planet, home to maybe some minute life."I say, as your Vice-Marshal, that we head home, not now of course, but in a few minutes. I need to take some pictures and ask you something.""Go on?""During the mission to Miller. They found a new source of Ice I told you about. However, I can't help but get the feeling that you might have been responsible for that, after all. The data we received from the Skill training rooms suggest you started to use a powerful Water Skill using Ice, and on the day you visit, this happens. I simply can't fathom it, unless, of course. That was you. Now you won't be in any trouble, you'll just have to either clean up your mess and face the consequences of changing the environment of a trusted ally, or give a really good reason that wasn't you.

>>3793548> Can life truly be totally eradicated? Could this happen to us, too, in the future? What guarantees are there, unless one overcomes the Heavenly God Stage, to protect life? Even as a Saint, I need souls to resurrect someone. But if all that remains is devastation... Not even a Saint could "resurrect" a planet.
>>3793548> Truth ("Guess now they'll have a fresh source of ice for their cocktails, uh? Might even be a boon of their tourism! Think I can get a cut of that?")
>If it has no life guess we gonna have to get some to put there>Tell him the truth"Well, yes I did make it, but I had no idea the Skill would do....that! It fires Water and sometimes Ice bullets, all I did was funnel all the Heavenly Energy I could spare to kill one of those behemoths. What was I supposed to do, let it run away?""Fine. I get ya. I think I need to explain something, what is the rank of the Skill?You have a look at the colour wheel, 12 Stars what the hell.""12 Stars. Why.""I-huh. You have 3 Jewels don't you? How on earth did you do that? Anyway. Skills, like people have a domain, specifically, stronger Skills and those of higher ranks can override the effects of a lower one. This domain can also affect the material world, we think that the Earth has its own soul, believe it or not, and is cultivating at this very minute. In other words, Skills in the Heavenly King and above territory can effect the Earth, in your case, you made a new source of Heavenly Energy. It has a domain separate from Earth, and this can cause problems. So talk to someone about what Miller want to do with it.""Sure. I guess the Ice will be good for drinks? They do live in a desert.""There will also be monsters! Things starting from the Zun Stage! Just...be careful when you use 10 Star and above Skills, they have their own identities-whatever. If you want more science babble take a course in General Elemental Theory. We're going home.""What about Mars? Does it have a soul? Is it cultivating?""I think so? As I said, I saw evidence of Elements, so...there must be something."You teleport back home. You think back to the barren surface. Maybe someday humans could live there, if the Earth ends up like that, then, could you even revive it? Could this happen to us, too, in the future? What guarantees are there, unless one overcomes the Heavenly God Stage, to protect life?You get out of the ship. It seems your effort back near Mars took a long time."Well Lieutenant, I can secure a set of Mars Walking gear for tomorrow, but not now.

>>3799110> "It was, well, terrifying. The lack of agency I felt when under the Succubus' Charm, how I felt the actions I took my own, but led by a dark impulse... How I was complicit in the slaughter back there... And how ready I was to give everything up for that monster... Terrifying. I don't think any power is more perverse than that."> Call Jiang. The lass is probably worried to death by now.
>Call Jiang"It was, well, terrifying. The lack of agency I felt when under the Succubus' Charm, how I felt the actions I took my own, but led by a dark impulse... How I was complicit in the slaughter back there... And how ready I was to give everything up for that monster... Terrifying. I don't think any power is more perverse than that.""I mean...the Divine Element does that...but to everyone, well, everyone who is the same strength or weaker than you anyway."You think back to Tsushiri...she's like her isn't she...a life destroyer."I'm going to call Jiang."You call Jiang, her voice ringing in your mind."Zou is that you?!""Yes. I'am alive. I'm myself, all is not lost, well, most is not lost.""You get back here right now so I can beat you up! You killed Fei!"Different strokes of people you guess."Fei? Jiang's calling, she won't be able to hear you so do something to say it is you.""Uhhhhhh Sonic Boom!""Jiang look for the sonic boom ring-"*BOOOOOM*"Ow. Fuck. Fei's back. Jessica isn't back yet.""Where the hell did you go?! We tried contacting Shimuko for some help in rescuing you but she refused!"Typical. As a Sunriser she is going to hate even being near mind control."Well I'm coming home now, shouldn't be long. I have Jessica's Jewels, but we need a way to contain the demon if it comes with.""I don't care about that just don't dye on me like with the Monkeys!""Will do. I haven't died once. Bye for now."You end the call. Without the brains of the operation the Elemental Research department is going to be a lot slower. Shian would be the best to take over, you think she is the smartest of the bunch. Anyway.Fei lands on the outer pentagonal roof of the palace."Phew! You aren't heavy, but carrying someone for hours is....really...tiring."You see her fall asleep right then and there. You catch her. Another trip to medical for you.When you set her down for some sleep in a bed. You are not met by Jiang at the door, but by Shan-Bai. In a wheel chair, but she is alive, and talking, and breathing, and functioning. At least someone has had a good few days."H-hello. How are you?""I want to get to work, it's nice to see you again, but I need to talk to Shian and the Vice-Marshal.""Um...Shian..she went out of the Palace to look for you...she isn't here....Zhang is testing a single pilot te-teleship, so, he's a bit busy, also called you an idiot...he wants you to attend some kind of official education I heard from the doctors....he said there was protocol for a Succubus and you didn't know it, so he want you to take a beast course."Drat, what fucking timing is this!"Fine. Jiang. I want to see Jiang.""Can I talk with you instead?"You sigh. Impatience is not a virtue."Yes, let me grab a chair somewhere else" You both sit down together, Shan-Bai says she wants you and her to just ask questions and say answers."1/2
>>3799158Phrased that weirdlyYou both sit down together, Shan-Bai says she wants you and her to just ask questions and say answers."The doctors say you are really good at healing, when can you help me? Can you train me with the whip or anything really? If I go out can I ask you to join me as you know the outer City and the outside better than me? And, lastly, can you help Sun-Di break through to Heavenly King please?"Right out with it huh?Player Choice (1)>Write-in for answersPlayer Choice (2)>Write-in for questions to ask Shan-BaiI need to eat some tea, so voting will last 30-40 mins with me back and ready to write for 18:40 pm BST. Thank you for playing!
>>3799164>The doctors say you are really good at healing, when can you help me?"I need to get some Life-element skills, because nothing I can do right now is permanent. I'll heal you soon, though, I promise.">Can you train me with the whip or anything really?"I can help you with a sword, but I don't know the first thing about using a whip...">If I go out can I ask you to join me as you know the outer City and the outside better than me?"I'd be happy to help you in any way I can.">And, lastly, can you help Sun-Di break through to Heavenly King please?""I'll do it."
>>3799164> "I'm fine with the first three, I'll probably get paid for that too, but... I feel like helping someone reach Heavenly King is still a bit far for me. I need to train my Heavenly Energy Control to a much higher level if I want to keep up with everyone, I'm afraid."> "What happened during my not-so-pleasant vacation?"> "Honestly, if so much education is needed to work with you, don't you feel like I've been thrust into the frontlines a bit too fast?"> "How's your recovery speed?

>>3799176ok am back early, and honestly we got thrust into the frontlines cause they needed us there
>>3799164>I can keep trying to boost your learning ability, but that is very hit or miss till i get better energy control, I'm still willing to try>I don't really know how to use a whip, I can try to supervise some of your training, but I'm better with a sword>I can try, but we will probably have to bring other people, and being in high alert I'm not sure if we can just leqave like that, already got in trouble for that once>I can try to help Sun-Di, not sure how much help I'll be but I'm willing to try>What did I miss while I was gone?>How common are monsters like this that there is a standard protocol for Succubus?>Is there a known way to cleanse them or are we going to have to hope i can do something impossible again?
>>3799182Still doesn't excuse very poor army management. I understand not having us go through all that from a narrative standpoint, but the minimum that should have happened would have been a month-long hell training crash course. We are an important military asset and should probably be treated as such.Hell, we should have bodyguards, instead of being one!
>>3799188tbf all that was made available to us, we just never took the courses, now they making them mandatory cause we fucked up
>>3799192They should've been mandatory from the start! We're a fourteen year old with the power to raise the dead and create massive climate-changing ravines, we should not be left to our own devices!
>>3799207To be fair on them, Zou gained ravine-carving power in this thread.
Am back from food early. Prawns are nice. I will be writing now.>>3799207The King, in your previous timelines, has seen exemplary work and attitude from every one. He trusted you to do the right thing, he still does. Also, the power of one of the 4 Great Elements is not to be understated. 3 of the main powers in this world have them. As a Princesses bodyguard you were given a free pass because of your power. However, it seems some things are now more necessary than before. You will hopefully be seeing the Vice-Marshal soon for a small chat. He likes to lash out at bit, being a cranky 70 year old does that.
>>3799207i dont think even we expected how stupidly powerful the combo of our set and our cheat ican truly be, as far as they knew we were slightly more powerful thans omeone at our cultivation level could be, and were mostly kept around cause jiang likes us and we could bring her back if she died
>>3799220well am happy they making some of those lessons mandatory, cause honestly theres a good chance we would have ignored them in favor of training, cultivating, jiang training and abusing our cheat
>>3799222Trips of Challenge, 3/5, this could be fun, later though."Well, I might need some more Life Element Skills, but the most I can do now is use Saint to improve your learning ability, however, I am ready to help when you ask."You see her face gain some colour, this must have been the main clincher for her."I use a Sword. I can spar with you, but I don't know how to use a whip. Fei might be a better option...or...just ask your Father for a teacher and get going, if the demon got to be so good using your body, then you should have the talent for it, even if you are wheelchair bound. I am not sure about the going out thing. The last time I did that I got in some major trouble, but I will try to help you any way I can. I can again, try and help Sun-Di break through, but I am nowhere good enough with my Heavenly Energy Control to make it consistent. I just have average talent with that. Jiang has outclassed me in weeks! ""R-right. Thank you. I will take that all to mind. Do you have any questions?""What has happened during my not-so-pleasant vacation?""I'm sorry, but I have been bed bound for most of it...I know that Shian left without permission, but the King isn't overly concerned. We are still working on equipment...for...the Moon."Saying this, she looks incredibly small, ashamed of her meagre condition and support."Honestly, if so much education is needed to work with the Palace, don't you feel like I've been thrust into the front lines a bit too fast?""Yes, but, the doctors told me the risks were worth it. You have been responsible for helping and saving the lives of hundreds of powerful and good people. The analysis of the Saint Element, resurrect. Me! Even now, you could bring back Jessica! I could see Fei on the bed! I don't know if the courses are mandatory. I've noticed that Zhang makes bad comments about the people he likes and trusts making mistakes, so it could be just him ranting...""How common are monsters like this that there is a standard protocol for Succubus?""We have a railgun Heavenly Emperor level beast in the basement. Squeaks is just something like that. I believe my Father ordered some protocol to be made for every book in the Library that had a monster in it...so...almost everything. Don't feel too bad about it. I have been alive..listening for 90 years! Hehe. So I know a lot even if my body doesn't work!""You're fine. Is there a known way to cleanse them or are we going to have to hope i can do something impossible again?""You mean things like the Succubus? Well, things can be..different for the Evil Element. They are really weak, but if you fall for them, there is no hope. The best advice is to avoid them, if not, then reach a cultivation higher than them, if you can't, then lead them to a church, or place of worship, and purify them. I suppose you could do that with your Saint Element?"1/2
Fuck just deleted a bunch of writing. gimmie a few more minutes!FUCKING HELLL WHYY.
"No, I need my 4th Jewel for that., I have an idea to bring back Jessica, but I'll need the holding facility you were when Bixie was possessing you, mind leading the way?""I-I don't think--no-no. I don't want to hear, think, see, listen! Nothing! Nada! J-just ask someone else!"Fine. She became a lot more angry, just leave it alone, you can ask someone else."Well, Fei is in Medical, do you want to stay with her for a bit?""Sure! See you later!"You see she is unnaturally happy, time to go.You leave to find Jiang, who must have very bad luck, because she's been searching for you all this time. She runs up to you, sobbing and crying all the way through."Zou! You're back! I am so glad you're alive!""Yes. Fei's in medical with Shan-Bai.""W-where's Jessica?""Complicated. I need to know where the containment chamber is, the one we used for Shan-Bai.""Wuh-, not a minute you come back and you want to do some work! I can't believe this! No! I am not telling you! Have some fun! Dance with me! Sing! Play games! have a break! Please, just don't work for a few days!"You definitely disagree. You need to do more. Fun. Later. There is too much at stake to mess around with games and dancing."No. I need to do something! Every moment, everything I do has to help people. This entire situation could have been avoided if I were better! If I knew more! If I worked harder! The things I've done are going to haunt my dreams, for the rest of my life! Well, looking at things that won't last too long will it! I can do better, could have done better and I know it!"Just do your best! That's all you can do! You have done so much already! Please, I just want to have fun with you for a bit."The crying changes, from happy to sad."All this work is going to break you, just, this must be your Element talking, listen to reason. Jessica knew you could do miracles. If she gets angry about her resurrection being delayed, then let me take the blame! Shian went looking for you and I couldn't I just want to help you and I think that means no training, no work, just living, ok?"You think of the corpses of the women you were responsible for. Their ghosts will be screaming for eternity if you don't do something. Then you look at Jiang, remember the times when you fought, danced, enjoyed each other's company. "I--I think-I want a break.""See? Doesn't that feel better?""But what about the Vice-Marshal? Jessica? Long? Wha-""Shhhhh. Don't worry about that, just follow me."She leads you over quite a while to the dancing room you have used."Wait there. I'll make you human again!">Roll 2d100 best of three, first for teaching gains, second for dancing gains.
Rolled 68, 90 = 158 (2d100)>>3799345I wonder what kind of music and what kind of dance they're practicing, if it is hard enough to warrant serious effort from superhumans beings like us.

Rolled 58, 67 = 125 (2d100)>>3799345
>>3799363You haven't really stopped since you started. So think like 3 months of almost constant physical training and studying and working, until for the world to show you none of it was for any use, and you fail at a critical junction. It is enough to break a normal person let alone a child with miracle based superpowers.
>>3799368need to start dedicating at least 1 day a week to like dancing with Jiang, could we get like an indicator of what day of the week it is? Also am guessing Jiang has seen us working non stop adn training non stop and this is like teh first time she sees us collapse emotionaly, closest being when we were disturbed by what we saw from the divine empress people

Let's make this easy on ourselves and call it a Friday.>Teaching is now +29>Useful Dancing is now 9/100You don't think stretching yourself is a good idea. So Jiang and you choose something slow, but according to her, makes you appreciate the sound, rather than the feeling.It's nice, lots of strings and wind instruments. Supposedly trying to show the different seasons, but, you let it flow through you. You learnt a way to make sounds with the Wind Element from Fei, maybe this is one way you can use it, like she did when Jiang was young. You start to match the sound with one of your own, a light brass. You think it fits. Jiang leans in closer to you."See? Are you having fun now?""Yes. I needed this. Thank you, Jiang."The two of you keep going with a few more songs, until it has been a few hours, and Jiang says she needs to go see Fei."What, work?""N-no! It's a hobby!""How about we do this once a week?""Yeah! Of course!"She dashes off. You have some time. All these things to do, so little time, apparently Heavenly God's can live to 500.

>>3799411Yes and no. He is basically in command, so he can authorise any equipment or staff you need. Paper work is important. However, he is clueless about the interactions of the Saint and Evil Element.
>>3799402>Go see the KingLet's see if the old man has some advice for us.
>>3799414would he be aware of the steps required for containing a succubus?
>>3799417actually yeah talk to the king, tell him what happened, share our insight on how the Destruction element cant be recreated from otehr elemental mixtures but maybe something to counter it can be made from fusing the saint elements
>>3799419Yeah. He doesn't "know", but he's smart enough to figure it out. What could possibly go wrong?OOC he'll set up the main stuff with you shadowing him to check a few bits. You are technically the most experienced person they have on board with this phenomenon and the Saint Element, so he wants a second opinion.
>Talk to the KingYou need some advice. You make your way to the Library. You find that the King is not there. So you walk to the throne room.*Knock knock.*"Enter."You open the door. The King sits on the throne."So.

Do you need anything from me?""I think I have a better idea on how to combat the Destruction Element.""...go on.""It is a unique Element, not made from any others. You cannot recreate it as such. Also, I think we need to contact Demon Hammer and Tsushuri, because combining the 4 Great Elements looks like the best way to make something to work against it.""I'll see what I can do. Tsushuri is reclusive. Now be gone with you. I expect my daughter back as soon as possible.""Yes, your Majesty!"When you leave. You have to wonder.

What the fuck?!"You see Dr Xi-Tze fall out of the ship."Zou! You bastard! Call me or something first!"He runs over, mallet in hand."How are you kid?""I could be better, but I am here. Fei is here. Jessica could be here. How about you? What is the ship?""Right so you know how your ship needs 2 people?""Yeah?""Well this only needs one, which can double our pilot strength! 30 whole pilots!""R-right. I need to ask you some questions. Firstly, I need some help, and some equipment for resurrecting Jessica.""Ah--oh, I see, right to the point...it's been hell without her honestly. What do you need?""The containment chamber that Shan-Bai once used, with a set up for Saint and defensive measures.""When? As soon as possible? Sure! That sounds great! Just stick with me and I'll get right on that!""Something else. Shan-Bai mentioned courses you wanted me to take?""W-well. I didn't really mean it like that-I mean, you aren't an idiot, sorry about that, but, I just get mad sometimes at people I work with. Jessica liked making bigger leaps in research than the less talented could keep up with, so I gave her a bit of hell for that. The courses are open-book and available any time, and as you a Teleship Lieutenant you could attend for free. Most of it is common sense, you know. Elemental strengths and weaknesses. How to deal with monsters...I mean, basic stuff people just normally learn in school...you never had the chance I guess. Is the Succubus dead?""Yes, along with Jessica. Which is why I need the chamber, so contain a Succubus if she comes back instead.""Ah fuck. You know what kid. I have a request before all of that, I have a small pet project of mine. You know how I said that people at higher cultivations can't get drunk easily? Well, I have a small recipe, but I need your help. I need some Lightning and Life Element, but I don't have the control for the delicate structures I need, care to try?""Alcohol on the job?

>Read the Guard's book for some Heavenly Energy Control practice, but first, a call and Shan-Bai.You wake up in your own bed. It feels familiar, warm, you are home. Then you get a call."Hello Disciple. I have a complaint to make. I hear you were the one who made the massive Ice thing. Please come to stop it soon. I don't mind it existing, as I can use it for training down the line. Others are not so lucky. It is nice for ice cubes, bad for monsters. The electoral parliament put it to vote and we want you, or someone from Dershwa to come deal with it within two weeks.""Will I get paid?""No. You did this, and you will fix it. You can bring anyone you like, but you will be responsible for paying and supporting them. Goodbye."He ends the call. Did he even know you were gone these past few days?You get a knock on the door."H-hello? C-can I come in?"It's Shan-Bai. You get some clothes on and open the door."It is very early, is there something you would like?""When y-you have the time, please come help with my recovery and body coordination training. Our main focus is to get me standing up today. My legs feel tired already, but the doctors tell me that I can get some rest when I can walk to the bed myself.""I might be able to see you this afternoon Okay?""Okay! Thank you!"She turns round her wheelchair with some effort, and moves away from the door, it is at this point you see that the wheelchair has been custom made for her, as it looks a lot smaller than a normal one.You close the door, and take our the Guard's book, it has been well kept by you, so it looks as good as when you first got it...the Mutation of Life book on the other hand you haven't touched, mainly because it looks like it could break after 4 pages have been turned.>Roll 1d100+40 best of three for Heavenly Energy Control training.

A small titbit, when I had the opportunity to work in a physiotherapy department with the NHS, one of the things I both saw and partly participated in was helping someone after post op trying to get out of bed after staying in it for 6 weeks with no exercise. They struggled but they managed in the end. So this scenario is something I have experience with, not the demon possession part, but the physio part.>Go see Shan-Bai, this was mainly a choice for character building. >Jessica will remember thatYou head off to Medical after that. You have a long way to go, but you need to take it one day at a time.You ask to see Shan-Bai, and they tell you to head to the Physiotherapy room. When you do, Shan-Bai is being assisted by a doctor and some nurses, she is still in her wheelchair. Breathing heavily and red faced, her body is taking a toll. The doctor speaks to you instead."Ah hello Lieutenant! Have you come to see the Princess' progress?""I've come to help with my boosting.""Right, well firstly. Princess, so you want to show how you have been doing?""Hah. Hah. Yes. Please. I just. Need a minute.""Certainly."A little later. Shan-Bai attempts to stand up. Grabbing on to the wheelchair's arms, she pushes herself up, legs, although developed, shaking with every move. Her mind and body are not in alignment. This is trying to get them to work together after 90 years.She gets about halfway, then she drops back in to the seat, breathing heavily."Well done! You are making fantastic progress Princess! Lieutenant, if you would increase her Stamina, she could use the muscle groups more often, which would increase the electrical strength of the motor neurons in her body after a bit of time, any increase will help, I leave it to your discretion."You decide to buff her instead. You don't put on your Angel of Death set.Over the time you spend here, she improves greatly. By the evening, you see her taking her first steps! However, she opts for the wheelchair in the end, as she is nowhere near healthy."Thank you Zou-Do-Shai. I am planning to continue in the evening, but I think seeing someone else might-be...a bit more important."Player Choice for the evening>Go see Jessica>Stay with Shan-Bai>Contemplate the advice from the Dao (Try for the nat 100)>Do your Job as a Teleship Lieutenant>Go see someone (Who?)>Cal someone (Who?)>Train Jiang>Help with the developing space related research>Cultivate>Go to the mass grave for resurrect>Read the Guard's book for some Heavenly Energy Control practice>See if you can't try to listen to the souls again (Who?)>Train a Stat (Which?)>Mutation of Life practice>Train Sword Technique>Read a book (Which?)>Explore (Where?)>Manners Practice>Try an Element>Train a Skill (Which?)>Other?

>>3801801>Go see JessicaWe should have all of our fish summoned and at the ready and Bixie on the draw.
>>3801801I need some sleep. The vote remains open all night. Thank you all for playing! The quest is due to start again at 14:00 pm BST tomorrow. Please post something for me to draw. I'll just be using MS Paint for it and I'll look at my options tomorrow. Goodnight.
>>3801801>Go see Jessica
>>3801801>Stay with Shan-BaiI'd honestly feel too bad to do anything else... It also fits with our "Saintness" to help the infirm.
>>3801918disagree, if jessicas situaation was like Bai she just did a bunch of horrible shit, she needs support when she wakes up
>>3801801>Go see Jessicasucc time
Ok, so with no suggestions for drawing, I have decide to draw both appearances of Saint's Radiance, one is made with Black Jade, i.e, the incomplete form, the other is made with a gold coloured material, the complete form when you get all the pieces.
Rolled 21, 56, 87 = 164 (3d100)>Go see JessicaGoing to see her right now may not be the best idea, you have a duty of care to Shan-Bai. However, you also have a huge responsibility to Jessica.You ask the doctors where you could find her, and apparently, she is a few wards down, they just put her in a bed and left her to rest. They don't know whether she has woken up, but she hasn't called for anyone.You walk over, and knock on the door. No response. You decide to break the door open anyway.You see Jessica awake, and she has curled up inside about 3 blankets on the bed. You can just see her eyes poking through."Ahhh.....fuck. Fuck. I'm sorry. I don't know. I didn't know what to do...I'm me. I think...just don't get any closer. My body feels all weird.""Weird how? The Saint Element can help." You walk over to the bed."No. No! Don't get any closer! Back off!"That sounds bad."Why? I didn't see anything wrong with you in the initial examination.""It's not that! I mean, I can feel something on my back, but it's something else! Piss off! Get me Shian! Fei's dead but I need a Heavenly Empress! No men allowed!""I brought back Fei. I can get her if you like?""Yes! Wait no! She'll never get it the stupid virgin! Shit where the hell is Shian?""Probably travelling home right now. I don't understand the problem, please tell me what is wrong.""No! Fuck off!"A small opening appears in the duvets, and a laser beam shoots out at you."Alright, just don't complain if you starve or something."You walk out and try and close the door, however your break-in earlier didn't do any favours, so you have to use the Spacial Element to shut it.>You have run out of time!>Sleep>Start of the 88th dayRolling 3d100 for stuff, first for YianEyue DC 35, second Kreyzar DC 80. third Jiang DC 50Player Choice for the morning>Ask Fei to see Jessica>Go see Jessica again anyway.>Go see Shan-Bai>Contemplate the advice from the Dao (Try for the nat 100)>Do your Job as a Teleship Lieutenant>Go see someone (Who?)>Cal someone (Who?)>Train Jiang>Help with the developing space related research>Cultivate>Go to the mass grave for resurrect>Read the Guard's book for some Heavenly Energy Control practice>See if you can't try to listen to the souls again (Who?)>Train a Stat (Which?)>Mutation of Life practice>Train Sword Technique>Read a book (Which?)>Explore (Where?)>Manners Practice>Try an Element>Train a Skill (Which?)>Other?

>>3803514>Go Train Greater Restorationlets get a couple special evolutions on this so we can fully fix Jessican and also get it to work on more esoteric shit, like objects and the enviroment. The training for this is prob gonna be hospital time
>>3803514>Read the Guard's book for some Heavenly Energy Control practiceUnless we find a faster way to level this up, we should really dedicate ourselves to training, as the clock is ticking.
>>3803516To heal anything but living organisms you would need the Time Element or the corresponding Element.
>>3803531am hoping for at least the ability to heal more esoteric things in people, kinda like how we do with holy energy, hell if this could purge people of demonic energy we would be in a much better place
Rolled 2 (1d3)>>3803531Gonna have to go with this. Things with no souls/ inanimate need non Life based Elements>>3803514>56Failure!TICK TOCK >Jiang DC met! She is asking for training!>Poor YianEyue>HeheheheRolling 1d3 for choice
>>3803524>Read the Guard's book for some Heavenly Energy Control practiceYou get yourself ready for training, then you hear a knock at the door."Zou! It's Jiang! I broke through to the 11th Level yesterday so I want some training!"Player Choice>Train Jiang>Continue with training Heavenly Energy Control by yourself
>>3803534But that's not how the Life Element works. It manipulates life, it doesn't interfere with spiritual or inorganic matter. The best you could do would be boosting the body's recovery rate to treat the symptoms, but it's much better to rely on the Saint Element when dealing with spiritual afflictions. Aspirin does not cure possession by the devil, exorcism do.
>>3803542Grater Restoration is a Saint Skill not Life Element, you are thinking of Revitalize
>>3803536AM not saying to use life element, Greater Restoration is a Saint Skill so it should be able to do esoteric healings and remove demonic corruption if evolved. If I was saying to train revitalize I would agree that it wouldnt help at all
>>3803540>Train Jiangoh god
>Train JiangShe drags you to a training room specialised for Stamina."Look. I know I went on a small rant about making you not work, but this case is special!""Yep. You have any idea when Shian will be back?""Bueh?! Um. No? Might be tomorrow, a few days after. I haven't called her yet, she likes to be left alone. Training!""Let's start with Heavenly Energy Control, how is your domain forming?""Well? I don't really know. How's yours?""I need some work. Maybe using the Saint Element will help boost my meagre talent."You go through with Jiang about a domain, and what it should do for her.>Roll 2d100, first for Heavenly Energy Control gains+29, second for Buffing your improvement by 2! DC 93. Best of three.
>>3803540>Continue with training Heavenly Energy Control by yourselfI like Jiang and all, but right now we are the priority. She can find better teachers anyway.>>3803544That's true. We almost never used that

Rolled 86, 8 = 94 (2d100)>>3803555Congratulations on your trips of God, QM.
>>3803555Trips of God!As you train, you get the sense of the Dao creeping in. it looks like the form of a monstrosity. It looks like a man fused with a young girl."Well. You'll never get anywhere if you think like that! Jessica still has markings of the Evil Element, be very careful or you will break Jiang's poor heart if you get too close to Jessica, dear me, leave the assault on the Moon for too long and they'll get their cannon up and running again. Toodss!"The Dao disappears, you aren't sure you can do much after that."Zou what's wrong you look like you've seen a ghost!""Nothing, just keep going.""Okay!">>3803566Roll
