All your life, you have known that you are different from the others. What they had to toil for, came easy to you. Accomplished athlete, straight A student, handsome, smart, and the most charismatic fella to ever set foot in a bar. You always were a natural leader, people flocked to you and you could have any girl you wanted. Only the most perceptive people sensed the emptiness in you and kept their distance. Which pursuit should be worthy of your considerable powers? You have dabbled with communism, racism, radical environmentalism, you have looked into almost all of the worlds religions. Ultimately it all felt hollow, just another tool to control the minds of the weak. And so you fell into boredom and despair, dallying away your days in pointless amusements. Until one day you received a calling. Not from above, but from below. And now, for the first time in your life, you know who you are and what you must do.You are the Son of Sin, the False Prophet, the Antichrist. You know for a fact that in exactly three years from your awakening, the world will end. Your task is to taint as many souls as possible before the last day, by promoting the seven deadly sins, driving humanity further from God and getting the masses to accept the mark of the beast, which you still have to create. Your newfound purpose immediately fills you with a wave of calm, determination, and something you might have never felt: pure joy. But you cannot get ahead of yourself. You must build on what you have achieved in life so far. Your aimless pursuits have taken you to a comfortable post as a:> Successful businessman> Politician> Media personality> Priest> Scientist> Manual laborer
>>5049208>Successful BusinessmanWell, it was nice knowing everyone.

>>5049250>What they had to toil for, came easy to you.>the most charismatic fellaPresumably we would be a dude who slacks a lot, takes it easy, and still get appreciation, raises, tips, coworkers' respect, etcetera.

>>5049250>>5049288>>5049355I wanted to give you guys an "everyman" option. Laborer route would basically make you a highly gifted slacker. For a guy to whom everything comes easy and who has no passions and ambitions it really is rather arbitrary what he's keeping himself busy with. Different starting position obviously offer different approaches, a worker might start a grand proletariat revolution, a priest create a schism etc. Keeping the vote open for a few more hours.

Waiting for a tiebreaker, then closing the vote!

Your natural instincts drove you in front of the camera, but you remained keenly aware about the trappings of show business, so you always refused to become an “entertainer”, a glorified clown keeping the masses sedated. You chose a position where you could make your voice be heard and remain unpredictable. Sometimes funny, sometimes angry, sometimes cynical and sometimes even desperate, your late show has always been a wild ride for viewers and guests. Your specialty has always been making your guests feel at home and manipulating them into giving up spicy details of their private life, or unorthodox views you would normally not mention in polite society. It brought you nationwide fame, and a comfortable position financially, although you are almost unknown abroad. An aide busts into your dressing room, throwing you out of your musings as you are getting powdered and prepped. “We go live in 20!”. You simply nod and wave the guy off. Tonight´s guest was a fitness guru trying to promote his new book and the latest diet fad – you wonder if he would busy himself with the same pointless shit if he knew the world will end in three years. Tomorrow it will be a local politician who has come under fire for allegedly promoting conspiracy theories – ultimately a talentless hack who relies on shock value and dog whistles to make up for a lack of substance and talent. And the day after a famous black athlete who has lately become very outspoken regarding topics of racial inequality – living in luxury while his “brothers” in the ghetto murdered each other over change.Again drifting off, you close your eyes and bring back to your mind the mental image, the vision that was gifted to you last night in your spiritual awakening. The world to come. The world you will make. The air thick with the smell of burned flesh from the sacrificial pits. Screams of agony mingling with screams of lust and bestial joy. Humanity unchained, in it´s pure, bestial form, free from the constraints the old man put on it. And in the middle of it all your high throne, made from gold and diamonds and blood and flesh and bones. The mesmerizing beauty of it.But this was still far away, and you would need to put in a lot of work for the rivers to ever run red like they did in your vision. How will you start? Looking again at your guests you make a decision. You will use your platform to:>[sloth] sow fear and political division by promoting conspiracy theories.>[wrath] promote racial division and call for violent action>[envy] promote unhealthy beauty standards, catching the youth in a web of self-hatred and idol-worship
write-ins are always an option btw. As I said, it is OK to take inspiration from real world examples but we are neither playing Trump nor Kimmel nor Tucker. I mean c´mon are these guys really evil incarnate to you? Because that's what we are.
>>5050199>[envy] promote unhealthy beauty standards, catching the youth in a web of self-hatred and idol-worshipLeast likely to attract /pol/ to the quest, and ALSO I can see this being a fun route to take towards getting people to wear the mark of the beast.
>>5050199>[envy] promote unhealthy beauty standards, catching the youth in a web of self-hatred and idol-worshipCan't be TOO up-front, subversion is key. We should make sure to hit some of the qualifications of Antichristship before it kicks off also
>>5050199>[envy] promote unhealthy beauty standards, catching the youth in a web of self-hatred and idol-worship
>>5050199>(Lust) Promote a highly sexualises society, make people cheat on their partner and indulge in their deep dark fantasies
>>5050665It's nice to see you guys getting into the spirit of thing with the write-ins. This vote goes to [envy], but I'll include an option similar to yours in the next update.
You ponder about the path you should take. Political and social division was becoming greater and greater every year even without your doing, a little spark should be enough to blow the whole thing up. It would be easy, rallying up one side enough to want blood. But your mind is sharp enough to see the dangers and traps of this easy path. For when you pick sides in a battle, the other side will oppose you, and you will unwittingly drive them closer to God. You must remain appealing to all souls, or at least the biggest possible number.So, silly as she may be, the beauty blogger will be your gateway into the hearts and minds of the “glam”-generation. She is famously fit and beautiful, an influencer in food, lifestyle and fashion. You begin the interview on a friendly note, congratulating her on her work in fighting obesity, you’re getting tired of seeing so many disgusting slobs in the streets and the malls. Then as the interview goes on, you proceed to poke little holes in her self-image, commenting on the size of her ears, the diameter of her upper arms, or the shape and color of her brows. At first, she ties to overplay it with humor. Then she tries to quip back, but her remarks fall short as your physique is literally flawless. During the end, she is broken, fighting back tears, fingers twitching. She storms out of the studio as soon as the cameras turn off, and you are certain she will make an appointment with a surgeon soon.The next two guests you quickly huddle through, changing the actual subject of the show to superficial talk about appearances. During the next few weeks, you reinvent your show to be a beauty program, obsessing over BMI and dieting. You go into ridiculous details, with questions like “what is the perfect nose shape?” and “are my toes too long?”. Your target demographic notably shifts to a younger, more feminine group. And the effect of your program are visible soon. Plastic surgeons are booked out for months, and it is getting to a point were DIY surgery kits are being sold on the black market. Eating disorders ravage a generation. A few concerned parents start organizing and protesting your show, but they are silenced in the wake of it’s great success, and in the hype you create for the few obscure half-starved international models you have picked as models and idols in your show. But the biggest hype is still about yourself, and your own beauty. Lately, the channel has started selling merchandize with your image on it. And for the first time you noticed something strange, your pictures becoming blurry to you.
Gained Antichrist characteristic: Beauty of the Beast. While you were always a handsome devil, you will now appear as the epitome of beauty to any beholder. This means that every person will see something different when looking at you, but it is never noticed because as soon as anyone tries to describe your physique, words fail them. So while some know that you are a natural redhead, others will admire your pitch black dreadlocks. To those with True Sight, your image will seem blurry and disconcerting.You have 1060 days leftNow that you have the attention of the youth, you will…>[lust] build on the physicality of your program to promote sexuality and adultery. Push your audience to follow their urges and desires.>[pride] promote more and more “strange” beauty standards – body modifications that irreparably distort men from God’s image.>[envy] shift the focus of your program to the lifestyle of the rich and beautiful, promoting idolatry while at the same time stoking resentment in the ugly and desolate masses.

“Sex sells” is one of the basic tenants of showbiz, and it splendidly aligns with your interests. You keep you beauty and lifestyle segments going, but you gradually involve more raunchy content into your show, with segments like “the thrill of public masturbation”, “extramarital passion”, “incest – the forbidden fruit”, “I have sex with my dog – so what”, and similar features. Instead of beauty bloggers and fashion models, your guests increasingly become figures of the adult entertainment world who proudly talk about their most depraved acts, or famous perverts. You comment them on their bravery for following their desires and making bank doing it. The fashion you promote becomes increasingly skimpy, with “whore glam” trending on the social media sites. Sign up for camwhoring services is exploding, and there is a noticeable increase in sexual misconduct claims. The effect on marriages will take a little longer to manifest itself, but you are sure it will come.The downside is, that opposition to your show becomes much louder and more organized, your show is under constant attack from lawsuits and public bashing. And so it comes as no surprise when you are one day visited by a visibly starstruck network executive, after an especially provocative piece questioning age of consent laws. “We all love your show, I watch it every night! And we appreciate everything you are doing for the network, we see how our viewership has exploded since you changed things. But it’s too much, the network cannot take this level of heat anymore. You need to tone it down!”. Well, expected, but still annoying. How will you handle this?You have 1004 days left>Cave in and tone down your content. You need the range of the network (at least for now), and maybe a more subtle approach will reach more souls in the long run.>Fuck them! Traditional media is dead anyway! Take your show online and produce even more extreme content.>Fuck this! You’re getting tired of this whole sex gig anyway. Time to reinvent the show again and focus on [write in]
>>5051327the Antichrist is notoriously changeable, so usually no single vote will "lock" you into a certain path. If you want, you guys can start spitballing ideas for the mark of the beast. The mark should be a permanent physical modification that taints the soul and marks the bearer as a soldier in the army of darkness. The more "evil" a mark is, and the more willingly it is taken, the stronger it is. I have a few ideas myself but for this I would actually prefer if the players came uo with something.
>>5051405>Fuck them! Traditional media is dead anyway! Take your show online and produce even more extreme content.
>>5051405>Cave in and tone down your content. You need the range of the network (at least for now), and maybe a more subtle approach will reach more souls in the long run.
>>5051405>Cave in and tone down your content. You need the range of the network (at least for now), and maybe a more subtle approach will reach more souls in the long run.We still need to spread abroad as well, it's too early to hamper our reach. Going independent and more extreme will just intensify the backlash. Our whispers must be heard by every ear before we start to truly speak.
>>5051405>Cave in and tone down your content. You need the range of the network (at least for now), and maybe a more subtle approach will reach more souls in the long run.I have no desire on focusing on one single sin anyway
>>5051405>"You wouldn't let go of your perfect little cash cow that easily, so how about we rework that contract a bit?">>Cave in and tone down your content. You need the range of the network (at least for now), and maybe a more subtle approach will reach more souls in the long run.Move to a later timeslot where this is sorta more acceptable, but still more toned down.at the same time...Ask to guest star with whatever the network does (cooking show -> gluttony) and if they see you behaving well, maybe get an earlier timeslot as well.To get that timeslot... well, would be a shame if another host would be involved in some sort of scandal.
>>5051571I like this idea! Support. And after gluttony...Maybe pride? Get people to fully embrace hedonism in terms of sexuality, consumption, and then self-expression, distancing then from God in body, spirit, and habit? Encourage worship and primacy of Your True Self? The Inner Beast?Then release a lifestyle brand with a big logo, representing this ethos, and encourage anyone doing major bodily modification in alignment with our ideals to incorporate a tatoo of it>>5051405Anyway, that's my idea. For now, I support the replied-to anon.
>>5051405>Fuck them! Traditional media is dead anyway! Take your show online and produce even more extreme content.we are the devils son, we dont back down, we double down.
I love the discussion folks! A few things about the ideas mentioned:We are doing a late night show, so the timeslot is not really an issue, it´s more that we are producing stuff which is too raunchy for TV in general. The gluttony idea is generally a good one and something you can do, but keep in mind that we have been feeding unrealistic beauty standards to impressionable minds and caused an anorexia epidemic, going from that to gluttony in your messaging is a hard sell even for the worlds greatest spin doctor (which you are). Closing the vote, update coming soon! We are staying with the network.
>>5051791We can encourage them to binge and purge! Or to buy ridiculously extravagant food. Or to drink heavily. All of that fits within Catholic notions of gluttony.
>>5051791have you ever seen a womans magazine?>lose 15 lbs with these easy steps>love yourself as you are>try these cupcake recipes!It's all hypocricy!We are not promoting getting fat, we are promoting to seize your desires!
>>5051791what's in our contract?if they were to kick us would they have to pay us out?is there a non compete or exclusivity clause that would disallow us from appearing on other networks?
You take a deep breath and then a long, drawn-out sip from your little coffee cup (black of course), all without breaking eye contact with the network executive. His eyes begin to flicker, as if he is trying to avert his gaze but is forcefully pulled back. He turns pale and begins to quiver. After you have sipped your coffee to the last drop, you effectfully put down the cup, it´s little clink breaking the pent-up silence. “Fine” you say, before the poor sod pisses over your dressing room rug. The executive blinks incredulously, clearly this is not the answer he was expecting. “Excuse me?”, he croaks. “I said fine. I´ll do it your way. Let´s say, PG 16. It is still a night show, yes?” “Yes yes, of course! Thank you sir!” And with a short bow (who the hell bows?) the little wimp rushes back out the door.So that´s that. You tune down your sex content to subliminal messaging, slutty fashion trends, and stories of adultery. The adult performers disappear from your show again to be replaced by new-age hippy chicks talking about the sexual revolution as if it was the 60s. You make a lucrative deal with an adult toy company and you start a BDSM trend when you put a focus on “pain and pleasure” in one of your more risqué pieces. Your audience keeps growing, until it stagnates at a high point. You feel you have hit a ceiling with your strategy. The beauty focus brought in the teens and the women and those are still your audience. With the sex stuff you got the middle aged men (at the cost of some women), but with your new tamer format it is back to an almost completely female (or gay) audience. And you are still only domestic. While you already have a considerable corroding influence on America´s youth and are slowly eroding traditional marriage, you are almost unknown abroad. You need to change your strategy to make your voice heard. You have a few ideas…You have 969 days left>You have noticed that the reaction to your looks has becoming much stronger recently.

>>5051846The payoff will probably be huge though. Our insane charisma will surely give us a devoted international fanbase. Also we can probably intimidate the director into working our messaging in the movie.We can have connections, international propaganda, and a rabid fanbase

>>5051830>While the camera loves you, you know that you still reach the best effects in direct communication. Just look at that poor sod earlier. Maybe you should start a world tour and preach your sermon the old-fashioned way.
You will need the big screen. So you start hitting the hangouts of the Hollywood elite. Most of them are lost souls already, so you always had excellent connections in LA. You hear of a few interesting projects in the making, actually going through your mailbox and paper basket you find out that you had already been approached for quite a few. However, you are keenly aware of the production time of a big budget movie – most movies in casting stage now will never be finished. You do, however, find the next best thing – an internationally successful series currently in casting for their next season. “New York Gals”, an inane little show about self-obsessed vapid females living their frivolous lives in the big apple. They are looking for a new antagonist, “Damien Kane”, a sinister billionaire playboy who will start a relationship with one of the Gals, only to manipulate her and cheat at every possible opportunity. It is perfect for you. So it is no surprise when you ace the casting and get offered a contract on the spot. You hand in your resignation with the network on the same day, to the great dismay of the executives. Your contract is quite loose (you negotiated it) and only requires you to do three more shows before you leave. You use these shows to again gradually introduce more risqué content, but nothing too over the top.Until your very last show. On the couch next to you is again a 20-something beauty blogger, not much unlike the girl who started you on this journey (who, as you later found out, killed herself after a botched nose job). She yaps on about how good her life is, and all the support she gets from her family and her boyfriend, who is sitting in the audience now. And still she is giving you looks, playing with her curls, blushing. So you think, why the hell not. You move closer to her, start touching her shoulders and knees, engaging in a little flirting yourself. And as she becomes engrossed, you rip open her blouse. You are so sure of yourself that you expect little resistance, but are still surprised to find none at all. The girl melts in your arms, you embrace her with your flesh, kisses, touches, slamming her on the table and beginning to fuck her on live television. The camera man wants to turn of the camera, but can’t keep himself from zooming in, the producer wants to cut the stream but can’t keep himself from switching angles. The audience has become dead silent, sweat on every brow, eyes staring unblinkingly. Until a woman in the third row stands up, lets out a bestial moan, and rips open her own blouse. As if on signal, all hell breaks loose as audience and crew mingle in the flesh, all broadcast in HD with closeups and dynamic camera work. The network would later make up some lame excuse about the water possibly being contaminated, a lie all too willingly supported by everyone involved in the orgy. But you know the truth.
Gained Antichrist characteristic: Aura of the Beast. Everyone in your presence will feel their desires more strongly and have vastly reduced impulse control. They will also feel a strong compulsion to follow you in word and deed. A small fraction of this power is transferable via media, but it is much stronger in your actual vicinity.You went out – quite literally – with a bang. While your show was all but completely unknown abroad, your little stunt made international news, and the handsome talkmaster involved in the late show orgy scandal went trending on all the networks. “New York Gals”, far from being appalled at the scandal, use the publicity to advertise their next season, which becomes their biggest hit so far. You made it. You are now an international TV star.

A RIGHTEOUS MANYour name is Jacob Baptist, and you are the pastor of Scottsville, VA. At least for now. Your dwindling flock has brought you some trouble with the judicatory court, who considers your sermon to be “too rigid” and “ultra orthodox”. Indeed you have noticed a lot of “feel god” Christians have stopped attending your services. You do not cry for them. People nowadays are constantly told to love themselves, that everything they do is great and they must never regret or apologize or do penance. It is what they are told in the schools, on TV, on the thrice-damned internet. It’s not what they should be told in church. They should be told the meaning of humility, servitude, penance. They should be reminded of the LAWS that GOD gave us! Not suggestions, laws!You have known that something was coming for a long time. You have studied scripture and theological treatises, and you have noticed the signs. And you can feel it in your bones. The end is nigh. This time for real. You don’t watch a lot of TV, and you are not on the internet. But the story of the orgy on life TV has reached even your ear. And you sensed that it was Him. So you went on the internet, in your local library and with the help of the lady. And you looked further into this rising star. His strange blurred look, his weird discordant speech that no-one seemed to notice. It is Him alright, the harbinger of the final days. A part of you rejoiced, thankful that you are part of the lucky generation that gets to witness the second coming. But before that, this foul creature will cause much suffering, and lead many weak souls astray. Unless a righteous man stands up. So you make a plan.>You are a soldier of God. If no one else sees it, it is up to you. You make up your mind to assassinate the Antichrist, or die trying.>If only one righteous man speaks up, he may save many. Form a united front against the antichrist, and challenge him to a public debate. Expose his evil to the world and show everyone his true face.>Judgement day is inevitable. Those souls tainted by the devil now were always weak. The role of the faithful is to endure these times and pave the path of the lord. Gather as many righteous souls as you can, and lead them to a safe and secret place to wait out the end of days.
>>5053402>If only one righteous man speaks up, he may save many. Form a united front against the antichrist, and challenge him to a public debate. Expose his evil to the world and show everyone his true face
>>5053402>The antichrist is the final weapon the Adversary, gifted with as much foul power as the devil could put inside it. We have no chance fighting it, and it's honeyed tongue would surely best me in a duel of wits. Instead of beginning a hopeless war, or a paltry debate, instead of cowering in some pit hoping for the lord to save us, I will go everywhere I can searching for any who will listen. I will start an grass roots movement preaching righteous values and moral thinking, working my way up from small towns, to cities, and then to the highest halls of power in this country, and then the world. Then when I have all the good of this earth working together, then we shall strike at the Deceiver in every way we can. >TLDR: stick to subtle preaching, social media manipulation and various other things in an effort to become the good opposite of the antichrist and gather a following strong enough that he will be unable to oppose your sheer numbers and resources in the final confrontation, all along the way doing everything we can to weaken and sabotage the antichrists efforts.
>>5053402>If only one righteous man speaks up, he may save many. Form a united front against the antichrist, and challenge him to a public debate. Expose his evil to the world and show everyone his true face.The righteous will recognize the truth of our words, no matter how much He twists them. The faithful will plainly see His exposed debauchery, no matter how cleverly He veils it. That alone will save many souls, even if we fail to truly cast Him aside

You weigh you options in your mind and heart. There is a voice inside you that screams to get the old rifle out and take care of this yourself. But you quickly dismiss this as a silly notion. As if it were that easy. And as if it was your place to pull that trigger. No, only the LORD will punish the wicked, and He will do it, when it’s time to do it. Maybe until then, you and those like you will just have to endure? Might that be your path? But you listen into your heart and you realize that it is fear, masquerading itself as prudence, as it often does, that suggests this way for you. The battlefield that this warrior of darkness is fighting on is the screens, and his weapons are his words and looks and mannerisms. So it is on this battlefield that you will attack him, with a coalition of likeminded decent folk, an army of the righteous at your back. Your foe is keeping himself busy in Europe, visiting talkshows and giving “self improvement” talks, spreading his poison. So you will have to get yourself a train ticket.TEST OF FAITH 3 anons please roll 1d100, DC70 (roll over)Don’t worry guys, next update we’ll get back to our favorite asshole.

“And that is exactly what I mean Pierre. I mean, what is the use of your so-called ‘higher power’? Just to keep you down. It’s what those in power have always done. In order to rule, they need to keep you weak. And in order to make you weak, they have to seal your inner beast. Because they fear its power!” The dark-clad French talkmaster nods sagely. “We all have so much power inside us, so much potential! That is why they have to seal it under so much bullshit, so much shame and fear. All that stuff they teach in the churches and schools. Even as early as Kindergarten! All those rules, you can’t do that, you shouldn’t do that. God sees everything! I’s all a big scam I’m telling ya!” The audience erupts in applause. Your work here was slowly bearing fruit. “I hear what you’re saying my friend, I really do.”, Pierre calmly states after the applause had died down. “But there are others who see it differently. A new movement that says we have all strayed from the path too much already. A movement for more modesty, and honesty, and good ald-fashioned fear of the Lord. Let’s hear what they have to say!” And on a big screen, the face of a grizzled man in black appears, Anglican priest from the looks of it. And he starts talking. About the spread of sin, and that all the righteous people need to take a stand to stop the spread of darkness. A smile creeps across your face. Is this supposed to be a threat to you? This ridiculous appearance, this preachy tone. How many could flock to such a clown over you? And he continues speaking. Of the coming end times, and of the signs already there. About the great seducer. And that he has seen him, and knows his name. Your smile freezes when he calls you the antichrist. HOW COULD HE KNOW? How could he have seen through your disguise? He, a mere mortal? And he challenges you to a public discussion.
You manage to laugh it off and sit through the show, before fleeing back to your luxurious Paris hotel room, sweat glistening on your forehead despite the winter cold. You don’t sleep that night. In fact you haven’t really slept in a long time. You no longer seem to need it, just like food and drink. You seem to be powered by an external source, like a machine connected to a high voltage cable. You spend your nights sitting in the middle of the floor, legs crossed in inverse lotus position, eyes closed, planning, scheming.Your first human instinct is to just kill the guy, or have him killed. It would be easy, and you would certainly get away with it. But would that solve your problem? You think back to the night of your awakening, and of the wisdom that was revealed to you there. The immortality of the soul, and that life and death are only different states of being, like water and steam. Killing this righteous soul would send him straight to heaven, and he would become a mighty commander in the old man’s army. No, to beat him, you must break his faith. But how?>[wrath]Stimulate his anger. Laugh in his face. Drive him to madness. Make him kill an innocent person, just because she supports you.>[lust]If there is something you learned to appreciate in the last few weeks, it is human’s weakness for lust.

The other two option rely on showing the world that the church is hypocritical and should be dismantled, which is fine... but if we can "Convert" Jacob to our side then the rest of the church would be possible as well, disguising our corruption as cooperation and forward progress. From there we would be free to corrupt the rest as we see fit.

>>5057058>>5056973>>5056620>>5056588Anons, how are we going to convince a chaste bible-thumper who knows we are the Antichrist (and therefore that his faith is factually true) that we align with his views?
>>5057196I'm banking on the Aura of the Beast giving us the edge necessary to win him over. Not that I think it will be a fast process for what it's worth.Or that it's guaranteed to work
>>5056523>[wrath]/[pride]ask him to come on a show with us, have an argumentation with himshow the world he's no different than any other preacher, getting off on the thought that others admire him and listen to his every word while simultaneously talking about the things that some other priests have been very much known to do with their young flock.We are at least pretending to be some beacon of virtue.Devolve until we get him into a fistfight. We'll have to take some hits in before we have the legal excuse to beat the living crap out of him.We can even confess that we are the antichrist by the priests definition, if being the antichrist means that we like to have fun and we want everyone else to have fun as well.
>>5057198Well maybe that is something I should clarify then. Your dark powers don't work against a true believer. So you have to rely on your wits and "natural" talents. Vote what you think is right, but don't bank on your powers for this one!
>>5057196We point out God's own cruelty and brutality from the old testament. ( bears killing children in Kings 2:23-2:24, fucking up Job's whole life for a bet, countless genocide)beat the preacher at his own game of quoting the scripture. Try to convince him that are our deeds really as bad as God's himself? Tell him that we're not some grand threat to the lord but another instrument of the lord's ire to test faith or some shit.Just really play into our knowledge of scripture, show him we're equal or superior to his knowledge

Over the next few weeks, the influence of the Jacob Baptist, the humble preacher from Virginia, steadily grew. It became an actual movement, with celebrities praising his ideas, and some church leaders rallying under his banner. And soon the cries for a public debate become too loud for you to ignore. So you meet the smoldering priest, in a late-night show not too different from your original format.“I have heard you wanted to talk to me, Jacob?”, you open in your best jovial tone, flashing a big white smile and opening your arms as if greeting an old friend. The audience erupts in cheers and laughter. “So what can I do you for, old boy?”“It is simple.”, Jacob answers. His hands are clenched and the veins on his neck are protruding. “I want you to swear that you are not the Antichrist.”You erupt in a hearty laugh, and open your mouth to say the words “I swear I am not the Antichrist.” But the words won’t come out. Curious. Vexing! On a deeper level, you understand what is happening. With your new powers came certain rules. Like that you cannot swear something you know to be untrue. You have fallen silent, and with you the entire studio. Everyone seems to be holding their breath, waiting for your answer. A satisfied grin begins to form on Jacobs lips, and he slowly opens them to continue talking, continue accusing. But you are quicker.“Suppose I am He. Would I then not also be a part of Gods plan? What was His greatest gift to humanity? Was it not freedom? The freedom to choose, to pick their own path? If I were the one you say I am, would I then not be a tool of God, to test who of his flock were true, and stayed with Him if they had to chance to pick another, sexier path?” The audience erupts in cheers and laughter at your last words.
Jacob has fallen silent. He furrows his deep brow as he tries to process the truth you have just told him. Then he shakes himself awake. “I know what you are doing, BEAST!”, he barks. “You are trying to lead me astray with your words, appear to my pride with your sophistry and flattery! Trying to pull ME to YOUR side! But not me! We have the freedom to choose! And I will never choose NOT marching against the armies of darkness!”You are dumbfounded. How could he have resisted you? A mere human? Just feet away from you! The old man must be cheating again. You quickly resort to your backup strategy. You spend the rest of the night trying to play your own words off as a joke, while laughing at Jacob and trying to portray him as a raving madman. The audience remains firmly in your grip, hollering at all of your quips and laughing at Jacob. But even here in the studio, you spot a few faces in the crowd that have fallen silent and do not join in the applause. After the end of the show, reaction remains similar. Most of the viewers compliment you on your “epic trolling” that made Jacob spit angry curses at you throughout the evening, and generally found the show mostly entertaining. But the next days see the numbers of “Jacob’s few” growing, as the righteous could see his message. For the first time in a very long time you experience something akin to failure. And it stings. How will you deal with this?>Have him murdered and be done with it. It was your first impulse and you should have trusted it.>Try to assassinate his character and drag him into the mud ([wrath] or [lust] prompts from the last vote, or good write-ins)>You have wasted too much time on that human already. Continue to laugh it off and ignore him, while working on spreading your message amongst the peopleYou have 773 days left
>>5059067I'm loathe to kill him now, if only because it would be kinda anticlimatic. So for me it's:>You have wasted too much time on that human already. Continue to laugh it off and ignore him, while working on spreading your message amongst the peopleIf we rail too hard against him, people will begin to see the validity of his message, same kinda thing happened with the whole covid vaccine thing, people trying to get other people vaccinated really hard just makes antivaxxers dig their heels in, so let's just treat him as a joke. Maybe even play into it, make our next book Antichrist Superstar or something.
>>5059067Yeah, I'd rather grow our platform right now and expand our influence while he does the same. Repeatedly going "I'm totally not the Antichrist" is going to make us seem desperate. Let's play into it and market it, keep it light. Like >>5059200 suggested While we keep spreading. I personally think it's time for us to start getting political and actually making some tangible changesOr we start making our follower do more depraved shit/spark more violence. They seem too normal as is.
>>5059204Oh! And as he grows he's bound to make friends and confidants. Maybe even a lover? I think we should have those closest to him either killed or converted to our side. Just so we haven't completely forgotten about him
>>5059067>You have wasted too much time on that human already. Continue to laugh it off and ignore him, while working on spreading your message amongst the peopleDon't want to make a martyr or show we are actually concerned about him
>>5059067>Continue to laugh it off and ignore him
Bah! The preacher’s star may be rising, but compared to you, he is still just a yappy little mutt at the side of the road. Annoying, but hardly worth your prolonged attention. You get a few devilish ideas, like messing with his entourage a bit, but banish those to the back of your mind for now. You need to stay focused, your most precious resource is time.So you resolve to refocus on your efforts of spreading your message. “New York Gals” continues to spread your fame worldwide and your “charmingly nonconformist” ideas make you a hot topic in intellectual circles and get you invitations to global talk shows and public speaking venues. But also your audience is captivated, and slowly falling into egoism and sexual depravity, you feel that you need to pick up your pace. But how?>It’s time to get political. Try to form a libertarian front, or promote identity politics and the right of every people and person to shape their own destiny (right libertarian/anarchism)>Jacob has managed to gather several important church leaders to his side. Maybe you also should try your hand with a few priests, you know many of the most depraved individuals wear the black or red, and might bolster your ranks.>Your success so far has been mostly in the lifestyle sector.

But with a leftist twinge instead of right libertarian>Promote personal freedom above all else, that the people in society that tell you that you can't do that, that it's wrong, that it's immoral are simply trying to hold you back so you'll be easier to control. Talk about Big Brother, and the CIA and FBI's work on literal mind control on leftists and during the 60s and 70s, insinuate that they're still doing it but much more subtlely and imply through our extensive experience in hollywood that we've seen first hand government spooks manipulation of every major TV show and movie, all to better control the populace, and that the government should only be there to help you do what you want, not hold you back.

“It’s what I’ve been telling you Pierre, they are trying to keep you down. The media, the secret services, it’s all connected I’m telling ya. It’s a big psy-op. You heard of MKULTRA? That’s how it started, those were the first humble steps. Now the stuff is in the water, in the air, in the food you eat. There’s no escaping it as long as we are under the globalist agenda. Trust me, I’ve been on enough movie sets to see the men in black and grey do their subtle work.” Your words spread fear and mistrust amongst the people of Europe and back home. You have spend the last few weeks building a strong network in “alternative” circles. Old hippies, members of revolutionary European movements, conspiracy nutjobs and non-mainstream news bloggers. And it is slowly showing success. Public trust in government and established structures is eroding world-wide, as extremist movements and fringe political parties on all sides of the political spectrum gain support. The question remains, how will you go about this movement becoming political? Will you spread wide or focus your efforts? Will you remain in the shadows or get into the spotlight?>[jealousy]Hand-pick a rising leader who aligns with your goals and turn him into your tool, steering his movement and joining it with yours to become global.>[wrath]tacitly support extremist movements worldwide, staying mostly in the shadows while stoking tensions and spreading chaos and uncertainty.>[pride]become political yourself. Next year, the US of A will elect a new president. It might be you.
Sub-Vote:As you no longer need sleep, you spend most of your nights either writing or meditating/scheming. It is exactly 2 years before the apocalypse, that a vision visits you in your meditations. You are given the schematics for what should become your most powerful tool, the mark of the beast. In front of your inner eye, you see:>An ornate symbol of three intertwined 6s. The logo of the most famous “whore glam” fashion brand, and the logo of a fringe political movement focused on individual freedom and the will to power.

Fashion, lifestyle, politics… why must there be a choice? You think back to the vision you had, the glorious wheel of spinning sixes, and you know what to do. You get in touch with your depraved contacts in the fashion industry and have a clothing line created. “Whore glam”, lots of skin, lots of black and red, lots of leather. And prominently featured your symbol, the 3 intertwined sixes. And on all your public appearances from then on, you promote the “antichristus” fashion line, amply named to mock the fringe religious movement claiming you to be him. Some find it ironic, some find it hot, some just go with the flow. Whatever it is, your label storms the clubs and Hollywood, your shows are almost completely filled with young people completely decked out in “antichristus”. A fanatical fanbase develops, obsessing and bickering over “rare” and “limited” items, while some have taken the combination of your teachings and your fashion so to heart, that they get the label tattooed on their backs, between their shoulder blades.
And not only with your fashion do you mock Jacob’s movement, you leave out no opportunity to publicly berate these “poor imbeciles”, “goody two-shoes”, “crusty preachers” etc., and your fanbase follows you in your antagonistic ways, although you exert all your influence to keep them non-violent – for now. You hire a few tech-savy kids from Russia to create a bot army for you, spamming memes ridiculing Jacob and his movement over social media. Some confidants from his inner circle get hacked, one priest who rose quite high in the organization took his life, after illegal pornography was discovered on his computer (he claimed it was planted to the bitter end). Your supporters formed non-violent picket lines around the gatherings of Jacob’s few, berating and taunting them with sexually explicit poses. It was only a matter of time until one of them would snap, and then they would be the violent aggressors. So it is in high spirits that you walk into one of your self-improvement talks, a little speech about overcoming the three great inhibitors: society, religion and family, to truly become free. As usual, the audience is hanging on your lips, cheering and shouting, some of the less inhibited ones already starting to feel each other up. A see of black and red. Until you notice the speck of white in the second row. The petite woman dressed in a thick white down jacket despite the heat in the room. Standing, but not cheering, or moving at all. Just staring at you, sweat on her forehead. As soon as you see her, cold panic hits you. You are in danger! This is way too close! How could she get so close? You turn to rush off the stage, but you are too slow and get caught in the full heat of the blast.You have 681 days left
>>5064187>the blastHaha, holy fuck, did one of Jakob's buddies go all ploughshares-into-swords and jihadi our ass?
You awake in darkness, and heat. So much heat. So many screams in the air, or rather lack of air. That peculiar smell. You have never been here in your life, but you know exactly where you are. Back so soon? you hear a mocking voice, which seems to come from all around you, and even from within your head. A voice you have heard only once, the night of your awakening. The Morningstar. This will not do. I will have to send you back up, and arrange for some protection. The old man was cheating, otherwise this girl would never have gotten so close. So we can bend the rules a little as well. You will keep a little reminder of this encounter though. The burning presence leaves your head, and leaves you in the sweet, cold, embrace of darkness.When you wake up a second time, you feel in considerable pain. You are in a clean white hospital room, connected to all kinds of beeping machines, a gentle breeze flowing through the trees outside. A quick check reveals that you can move all your body parts, and they still seem to be in their right place. The left side of your face however is burning hot. You call for water, and a mirror. A massive figure in a black suit enters the room. No hair, eyes hidden behind shades and the blackest skin you have ever seen on a human being. Although you can sense that this thing is not entirely human. It has the smell of hell on it. Wordlessly, your new bodyguard hands you a glass of water and a small hand mirror. It is not as bad as you feared. Your face fees like two-face Harvey half-molten shit, but it is a much more benign burn mark. Still, no covering up that one. Would you even want to? weakness gained: Mark of the lady. The mark on your face will start to burn and cause you agony if you are in the presence of true believers. While being a convenient early warning system, it is a hell of a distraction. Your encounter has also left you with an irrational fear of women in white.“58 people were killed in the blast that night. You survived through a miracle.”, the black-clad figure speaks, with a voice like a bass machine. Many are calling for legal repercussions against Jacob’s few, demanding protection and a guarantee of their freedoms and civil liberties, free from harm. Others are more direct in their wrath, and call for an open war. You could just crush this.”You have 653 days left>[wrath]War it shall be then.

Hi all, just quickly dropping in to let you guys know I (and the quest) am still alive. I should be able to get an update posted in the next 12 hours.
>>5066968Thanks for the update!
You take a few deep breaths, and then your clenched fists open up. “I am going to call you Jeremy.”, you calmy state to the hulking giant. He remains completely motionless. “You look big and strong Jeremy, but you lack vision. Now is not the time for violence. A fucking suicide bombing? 58 people dead? Shit, that’s the best thing that could have happened to me.” On the same day you put out a statement to all your fans, telling them you are alive and well, and strongly discouraging any rash actions and especially violence. You remind everyone that, after all, your movement is all about love and freedom. And that it is the job of the authorities to deal with dangerous criminals such as these. For the next day, you talk to the press. You hold a passionate speech about what it means to be free, about the freedom of expression and belief that has been fought for so hard, and that always had been threatened by dictators and religious fanatics.Until this day, despite often striking a “serious” tone, you were first and foremost regarded as an entertainment figure. This speech made people see you as a political person, a visionary and a freedom fighter. Tattoo parlors were booked out as casual followers now dove deep into your ideology and went to get the mark of the beast.Jacob was in full damage control move, he sharply condemned the suicide attack as fundamentally unchristian, and disowned the culprit, a certain Mary C. Blanche. But not even his own movement was completely united in the rejection of the attack. So when you started pushing for legal repercussions, you were met with some violent reactions which in turn furthered your agenda. “Jacob’s few” were labeled as a terrorist organization in the US, several countries in Europe, Russia and China. Jacob himself and his inner circle have relocated to south America where their brand of Christianity is more accepted. With that being taken care of, the question is, what do you do with your newfound political reach?>Campaign for a place where your followers can be free from prosecution, and make it a new Babel. Followers from all over the world can flock there and build a temple of sin.>Rally your followers to use freedom of speech to express divergent thoughts and disrupt established structures.

In the last few days you have thought long and hard about how Jacob could get to you. His movement was infinitely smaller than yours, how could they keep being a thorn in your side? The conclusion you came to was that it was because Jacob’s few were exactly that, a movement. A proper organization. Whereas everything you had were followers, unconcerted individual actors and actions. This needed to stop. You needed to organize. So you spend a good two weeks surveying what is there already. Fanclubs, outspoken supporters, influencers… Which of them were smart and powerful and wicked enough to become generals in your army? Who could help you carry the dark torch of your teachings into the far reaches of the world? You identify a few promising individuals and call them to your side. All of them are utterly lost souls already and heed your call without even thinking about it.There’s the dark and luscious Brigitte Benoit, the French model/influencer who started the trend of tattooing the mark of the beast between your shoulderblades. A high-society degenerate with excellent connections to the international jet-set and a global following of admirers and copycats.There’s Boris “Botnet” Nikitov, the Russian hacker in charge of many of your social media bots and behind many of your targeted smear campaigns. A slim pale IT whiz almost devoid of human emotions.There’s homely Carol Kramer from Ohio, president of your most influential American fanclub. While most fanclubs consist mainly of scene kids, Carol’s is filled with respectable citizens, soccer moms and pillars of their communities. Her husband was against her following your invitation so she left in the dark of night.There’s lanky and quiet Abdul El Arayn, eldest son of a gulf Sheikh. Your following in the Islamic world is weak, maybe the quiet aristocrat who was referred to you by dark business contacts is the key to change that?There’s petite and exotic Mai Sook, the Korean pop sensation that popularized your imagery and message in the far east, opening the minds of countless impressionable young souls to your reach.And there’s bulky Ralf Müller, the German political extremist who has moved from the far right to the far left and now has found a political home in your radical libertarian/anarchist agenda. An angry, violent man with a lot of clandestine contacts to extremists throughout Europe.You take these chosen champions to a remote Arizona farm, that you have rented and prepared for one week of intense brainwashing. Drugs, tantric sex, public humiliation, De Sade, Nietzsche, Crowley, BDSM porn… And last but not least your own dark presence slowly driving them out of the reach of the old man and into your clutches. At the end of this week, they will all be good generals in your army of darkness, but you take a special interest in…>Brigitte>Boris>Carol>Abdul>Mai>RalfYou have 590 days left
>>5069436>RalfHe will be our second. Or number one.
>>5069436>BorisSocial media and the internet could be invaluable in quickly corrupting many people.The future is now, Old Man.
>>5069436>AbdulRich Arab nobles get away with all kinds of shit and have unscrutinized access to sovereign wealth funds. Channel his resources to fund our own private compound nearer to the Holy Land, where we can make horrifying wonders.
>>5069436>Brigitte>AbdulThey make a perfect pair. A rich oil sheikh and his “girlfriend”. They can go anywhere and get away with anything.
>>5069927Ooo, clever. If we can do this, I change my vote from >>5069692 to this.>>5069436
>>5069436>RalfWe have enough personality, it's time to get some military style force
So at the moment we are tied between Ralf Müller and a combination of Abdul El Arayn and Brigitte Benoit. Just to clarify, those 6 are your core disciples now and their full powers are at your disposal. The purpose of this vote is to determine whom you put a special focus on. It is of course possible to focus on several, or even to put no special focus on anyone and try to split your attention evenly amongst all 6. All of these choices will lead to different results.
>>5070386oh shit while I was writing my little essay here we had a tiebreaker. Vote remains open for a few more hours, should be able to get an update up within the next 5 hours.
“Welcome, my children”, you say with your warmest smile and tone, arms spread out as if preparing to hug a long lost son. “I do appreciate you coming from all corners of the world just to pay little old me a visit.”. The ragtag gang you have assembled in your hotel suite in Phoenix suite are all mesmerized in their own way. Mai looks up to you in an almost religious revery, Brigitte and Carol are physically shivering with excitement. Abdul just stares at you with wide open eyes, Boris seems to be completely dazed and is staring ahead with an empty gaze. Ralf has his eyes closed, veins pumping on the temples of his shaved skull. You can feel the raw energy protruding from this man, and you have no doubt in your mind that if this group were to strand on a lonely island, Ralf would make them all his bitches within minutes. “I want you to take this night to rest and take care of whatever you still need to take care of. Tomorrow at 7 PM Jeremy will wake you up and gather your electronic devices. At 8 AM sharp we will leave to our little retreat. I am looking forward to spending some quality time with you guys.” No one says a word until you shoo them out of the room. You hear some nervous chattering and awkward conversation through your door but ignore it. None of it will matter anymore soon.The next day, everyone is strapped and ready to go at 8AM sharp. While everyone has his unique reaction to your aura, the rection to Jeremy is universally pure, unadulterated dread. So everyone jumps at his growled commands and soon the black bus with the tinted windows leaves for the humble farm you have prepared in the desert. While everyone moves into their shared bedrooms, Jeremy drags a sofa-chair to the front yard, sits his big ass down in it and proceeds to sit there, not moving a muscle, for the next seven days straight. Meanwhile inside, you party. Extasy, coke, copious amounts of alcohol and the constant hardcore porn blaring on the big screen TVs you had installed in every room set the mood for a night and a day of debauchery. Then you start the shaming. You individually deconstruct every one of these poor fleshbags for their many obvious flaws and shortcomings, reduce them to crying little babies, their souls lying before you naked like a skinned rabbit. Again it is Ralf who positively pikes your interest. When in one “group therapy” session Boris throws a particularly biting remark at him, instead of breaking down the big German just gets up from his chair and flings it in the face of the Russian nerd, sending his glasses flying in a rain of splinters. Primitive? Yes. But you have a feeling that primitive times are coming. No matter, with a few well chosen words you reduce him to a quivering mass as well. Then comes the Methamphetamine, and the lessons.
. You give a 20 hours long non-stop lecture about theory of freedom, Satanist theology, anarchism, magic etc. A lot of it you know to be false, but that is beside the point, you are trying to bring across a message here. After the lecture, partying and again criticism. Rinse and repeat. As the week goes on, you let the members of your little group commit random acts of cruelty onto each other as well as a few unlucky subjects you have acquired for the occasion. Things get rather messy and Jeremy has to get up from his chair to get the bleach and go to scrubbing. Again it is Ralf who outdoes the others, he just seems to always be willing to go one step further than everybody else, if not several steps. You find that you are spending more and more one-on-one time with him. Not that the others are not important, but you have a feeling he might be your most useful tool in the immediate future. At the end of the week, all six look at you with the same expression. Head bowed, eyes aflame with passion and power, a mad grin fixed on their lips. And the tattoo between their shoulder blades glowing in a faint red.Gained Antichrist characteristic: Eyes and Ears. You have formed a spiritual bond with your 6 disciples that allows you to enter their minds when meditating, seeing through their eyes and hearing through their ears. You can also telepathically send messages and commands to them, although it is one-way communication only.After your little bootcamp, you release your followers back to their respective corners of the world. You have given loose instructions to all of them, but you feel that you should not try to micromanage, the important thing is that they are properly motivated, which they now certainly all are. You do keep a closer eye on your prodigy Ralf though. He immediately gets to work, using his extremist contacts to spread your message among those living outside the law and ready for violence. The closest thing to warriors this degenerate age has to offer. And within weeks he has organized a paramilitary clandestine organization with a few hundred members spread throughout Europe, an actual terrorist organization in a cruel mockery of Jacob’s “alleged” terrorist organization.
You have muscle now. How will you use it?>Jacob’s few have been a thorn in your side for too long! Although Ralf’s “Cleaning boys” are based in Europe and Jacob’s people mostly in South America, it should not be too hard to bring the torch to them and end this charade.>Commit semi-random acts of terrorism against authority figures to spread fear and uncertainty, pushing the message that only you can protect yourself and bringing more violence and mistrust into the sated societies of Europe.>Target churches and organized religion. It is time to wage open war against the fools following the old man.>Let the network remain hidden for now. Focus on training and equipment while you direct your attention to another plan [what?]You have 548 days left
Oh and if you guys have and special ideas of what you would like the other 5 disciples to do, please feel free to share as well.
>>5070711>Target and assassinate political leaders, respected religious figures, and any influencer speaking out against you and the general sin and debauchery you promote, while also occasionally hitting banks so we have some liquid funding for other operations. Leave Jacobs few alone for now, they still have a role to play in the Climax. >At the same time, have Boris set up as many bot networks as he can promoting our message while stifling anyone speaking out, trick the old fools in power into allowing trojans onto their devices holding sensitive information, and generally try to upset the balance and order of the world IE: stage ransom hacks on oil pipelines, meat and produce suppliers, Amazon, and any industry that is necessary for the day to day functions of society. If this is all to much for one man to do, give him free use of your resources to put your plan into effect.The real war starts now.
>>5070756Supporting, but be extra careful that no assassination can be traced back to us. We have been going for something of a "peace" & "love" approach, it would be a shame to blow it too early. As for the other disciples, they should either focus on winning the hearts of others by spreading our message, or winning their wallets with business deals/blackmail. Whichever they are most suited for.
No update today folks. Should still be able to get 1-2 updates out this weekend.
Wait, why did my IP change but I still have [red]QM Powers [/red]?
>>5072691Your powers have abandoned you too, now.
>>5072688OP? Do you yet live?
Cardinal Krantz was pretty happy with his campaign. Although it was going slow, his little movement for more modesty and discipline within the ranks of the catholic church was gaining steam, and his talks about having a second more literal look at scripture was also gathering more supporters. He had kept his meetings with Jacob’s representatives mostly clandestine, instead building a network with ultra-conservative wings of the church such as Opus Dei. In his book, they were all fighting the good fight, so there was no reason not to sit on one big table. Yes, the cardinal had all reason to feel happy with himself as he exited the low-key, yet luxurious conference hotel where he was meeting with south American missionaries. He entered his dark Maybach, and gave a wink to the driver. Wait… where was the driver? BOOOOM!Yes, Ralf is keeping himself busy. You marvel at the young faces you see through his eyes, faces devoid of human empathy, or any feeling really, other than cold, methodical hate. The potential of humanity for hate and destruction never ceases to surprise you. Conservative politicians and their billionaire donors, church elders, some of them known figures, others policymakers and lobbyists those enormous influence was only known to a few initiates. Sometimes it is a bomb, sometimes a rifle, sometimes a knife – Ralf’s “cleaning boys” are surprisingly versatile. Brigitte and Boris are also busy spinning and spreading convincing cover-stories for these acts of terror – radical Islam, anarchism, right-wing terror, you even spread a story about an old communist terror cell suddenly restarting activities. Confessions and manifestos shoot up like mushrooms, all to keep the feds chasing shadows. Abdul is mostly busy as a financier and middle-man, pumping dark money and equipment into your organization, the other girls are just networking and spreading your message in their homelands.
Meanwhile the real culprit is mostly busy keeping a profile as public as possible to deflect any attention. You are half-assedly shooting the new season of “New York Gals”, while still touring the talk-shows spreading your liberalist agenda while sharply condemning violence. You have noticed an increasing number of faces in the crowd that smile diabolically every time you mention peace, as if they were in on the joke. You are not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Entertainer and inspiring speaker by day, terrorist leader by night – a man who does not need to eat or sleep can be very productive. But you still wonder if this campaign of terror is really paying off for you. It is undeniably fun. You are hitting any attempt of organized resistance, crushing it in it’s roots. Creating chaos and uncertainty while also striking fear into those who want to speak out. But is it really furthering your goals? What even is the direction of this bloody underground war?>Focus on propaganda from now on. Draft a convincing ideology as close to your teachings as you can go while still retaining plausible deniability. Use your tech-wizards, pop stars and influencers to spread the message of this new-formed terrorist organization to booster it’s ranks with lost souls and create a global movement of bloody violence.>Further professionalize your outfit. You have good contacts with a few rising politicians in second and third world countries, use your resources to help them to power, so they can in turn help you.>You have played with Jacob like a cat plays with a trapped mouse, but it is time to end the charade and get rid of the priest. He and his have been suspiciously quiet and you are worried that they might plan something big. It vexes you that they remain a blind spot for you.You have 464 days left
>>5076091I do, thanks for bearing with me. I will have a few days off soon, so hopefully I'll be able to pick up the pace a bit before I leave for Christmas.
>>5076106In the shadows:>Focus on propagandaIn public:>Start advocating for radical transhumanism and a new school of material and spiritual thoughtGradually bring the two closer together, until those who follow our terrorist activities and those who follow our hedonistic public persona are in accord.
>>5076118Support, we want to disfigure and de-sanctify the human form as much as possible
I see a lot of support for transhumanism. What do you guys have in mind? AI? Uploading your brain? Bionic implants? Gene-mods? All this stuff is not exactly your area of expertise so you'll have to find a few eggheads for this.
>>5076908Let's start biological, with extreme surgery and abandonment of the human form.
It is the unassuming Mai Sook, who surprises you with an unexpected present. Following the general Korean trend for extensive plastic surgery, she got in touch with a surgeon known for loose ethics. Merging Japanese “Gyaru” fashion with some occult imagery she picked up on your desert retreat, she transformed herself from a lithe, fair-skinned beauty into an abomination. And her followers followed suit. Immediately seeing the potential, you jump on the bandwagon immediately, publicly praising her and more extreme members of the “body modification” scene – with all it’s great advancements in science, why should humanity still be bound to the boring, naked flesh it was born with? We can be so much more. We might even grow wings to fly and soar the heavens one day. All the circus freaks who once had toured the afternoon talkshows suddenly arrive in the center of popular discourse, and you are quite busy meeting them and spreading their message of self-hatred and narcissism disguised as bravery. This very public profile also serves as a handy distraction to anyone who might otherwise connect you to the actions of your young German disciple.Ralf has toned down the terror considerably, instead keeping busy mostly with ideological work. The “cleaning boys” are now a recognized terrorized organization, with a convincing ideological blend of Anarchism, Anti-capitalism, and radical libertarianism attracting lost souls from all over Europe. Scores of young people taking the mark in the East and the West, some to follow a fashion fad, others to join an underground army. You have created a beast with 6 heads, a hydra. You cannot help but smile smugly at your work.
Until you feel something… shifting. You turn on the news. Aah, the US election. You smirk as you remember, not even a year ago you were actually considering running in this clown show. As if it makes a difference. Some young firebrand, supported by a wave of evangelical support – the system will eat him up quick enough. You’re out of touch with American politics, so just to make sure, you spend the next few days focusing on Carol to find out more about the Republican incumbent, Gerald Whitelake. Carol herself has spent the last few weeks lobbying for the Republican favorite, an old political hound completely in the pockets of oil, tobacco and the military industrial complex. She was as surprised as everybody else when he lost the primary, and even more baffled as Whitelake became President in a landslide. While his agenda of bringing America “back under God” was slightly worrying to her, she and most of her organizers would just laugh it off. Until one day, the FBI was at her door. Apparently there was a new blasphemy law, and she and her girls were found to be in violation of it. She was quickly stuffed into a black SUV and driven off. As the bag goes over her head, you feel the sting of a true believer in you, and the last thing you see before you are forced out of her body is the face of Andrew Johnson, one of Jacob’s senior officers.You howl in rage in your Stockholm hotel suite. So that’s what Jacob was up to. While you were busy playing soldier in Europe and cozying up with the middle- and far-east, he has taken America from you. Your home! He has imprisoned Carol! The nerve! No, this will not stand.>Stay low-key. Bust Carol out of prison in a night raid, and build an underground movement fighting against the new evangelical leadership. You can’t imagine these blasphemy laws are very popular with the people.>Before doing anything else, you retaliate against Jacob. Find him and his officers wherever they are hiding, and destroy them once and for all.>Try to get back into Carol, and solve this though her. She is uniquely gifted after all, a woman like her in a public prison might provide an opportunity.You have 408 days left
>>5079548>Try to get back into Carol, and solve this though her. She is uniquely gifted after all, a woman like her in a public prison might provide an opportunity.Breaking her out by force would be too obvious, instead use our charm through her to take over the prison from the inside.
>>5079548>Stay low-key. Bust Carol out of prison in a night raid, and build an underground movement fighting against the new evangelical leadership. You can’t imagine these blasphemy laws are very popular with the people.She will be our martyr. No longer are we the media darling and Jacob and his flock the underdog. Now, we are OPPRESSED, and the godly recognizable as TYRANNY.Gradually unify our "cleaning boys" and our transhumanist/hedonist cult with a rallying cry.>Free Carol>...Then Free The Rest of Us!
>>5079568I'm a bit confused by this vote. Vote says to break Carol out, but write-in implies she's still in prison. What should it be anon?
>>5080886break her out afaik
>>5080886Stage public protests, then break her out and use her fugitive status to rally people to the cause.
>>5079548>>Stay low-key. Bust Carol out of prison in a night raid, and build an underground movement fighting against the new evangelical leadership. You can’t imagine these blasphemy laws are very popular with the people.

You have lost contact with Carol for a whole week. Whenever you tried reaching out to her it was as if your spirit hit a wall, and the searing pain in your head returned. Cursed Jacob and his ilk! While you tried reaching out, your disciples were keeping busy, rallying support through their own channels. Boris and Brigitte proved especially valuable, keeping #FreeCarol tweeting over the social media and organizing protests against the fundamentalist shift in American politics. Ralf has formed a squad of some of his most trusted fighters and sent them to different US cities, keeping an ear on the streets and trying to sniff out pockets of resistance. When you were finally able to make contact with Carol, she was sitting in a nondescript concrete room, on a chair and in front of a table bolted to the floor. The metal door opened and a middle aged man in a suit walked in. A jolt of panic raced through Carols nervous system, and again the pain forced you out. Did the FBI now have men of faith in their own ranks? Cursed Whitelake. You sensed something off about the man, he somehow seemed completely out of your reach. Where did he come from? While Carol herself had no idea where she was held, you had a pretty good idea. Small concrete structure in the Mohave desert, shows up on no maps and only as a grey blur on satellite images. Some illegal prison or safehouse in the middle of nowhere, this would not be an easy job for the Cleaning Boys. Ralf simply concluded that stealth was pretty much off the table and began to buy heavy weapons and vehicles through shady cartel contacts. Surprisingly the sheikh was of great value in this, with his dark connections and deep pockets. Armored Humvees, hand grenades, mounted machine guns, armor piercing bullets, even a freaking rocket launcher. The operation had turned from a heist to a frontal assault. After 3 weeks of preparation, the big night came. You had no mental link to Ralf’s goons, so you insisted on a direct video and voice link. You were looking through the action cam of the scout in charge, who rode a motorcycle at the front of the assault. The building got into view and everybody tensed up, getting ready for enemy contact. But strangely there was… nothing. The convoy was rushing closer and closer to the structure, certainly they must have been spotted by now, even though they were driving at night with no lights. Already the scout was almost there. You sensed something was off. “STOP”, you shouted, “RETREAT!”. But the reaction time through mere voice link was too slow, so two Humvees and the unfortunate scout were caught in the blast radius as the whole structure exploded.
A trap? A setup? How could they have known? They PLACED Carol there, to draw your eye to this shithole in the middle of nowhere, then moving her to old man knows where. You had your eyes on this structure for the last two weeks straight, she could have been there two nights max. The structure must have been rigged and set up well beforehand. They knew exactly how your powers work and were using it against you. This is… unnerving. How to move forward?>Find Carol through conventional means, play a little detective. This has become personal and you cannot stand to be ridiculed like this.>Refocus your efforts on reaching Carol. Surely if you push hard enough and activate your hidden reserves, you can break through their puny barriers and give Carol herself a nice little boost. You would only need some preparation. First you had to find three virgins.>Refocus on the political #FreeCarol campaign. Maybe she is more useful in prison after all, at least for now.>You have wasted enough time on all of this already! Refocus your attention away from the American continent and spread your following elsewhere [where?]You have 373 days left
