    Right, let's try this again. I forgot to archive the last thread and don't remember shit about what happened beyond a vague recollection of killing a man for his boots. So, re-do?

    You are a monster. The unnatural spawn of magic and sin, you are despised by the natural world and reality itself. Man fears you, hunts you, and wishes most dearly for a world rid of your presence. But you are no great beast, crushing villages and eating the flesh of men. You are newly formed, weak, and unknowing. But what exactly are you?

    (Ask for a further explanation of any monster choice and it will be provided.)

    We roll d20's for actions. The d20 determines the success, not the likelihood of being chosen. Whatever I find most entertaining or most commonly supported will be used.

    You are an IMP. Unwise and untested, you are a young demon fresh from the spawning pits, summoned by mortal hands into the world. You awaken for the first time, in front of a young man who furiously exclaims his happiness in "Finally getting the spell right!" He is skinny, rather short, with messy blonde hair and he dresses poorly.

    But before we get to your reaction to being summoned, what TYPE of IMP are you?

    >Red Imp
    Strong in arm and quick to anger, Red Imps are resistant to fire and larger than other Imps, though still no where near human height.
    >Blue Imp
    Small, slight, and calm, Blue Imps are immune to cold and talented in magical affairs.

    You are a RED IMP. Standing at just under four feet and child-like in body, you have yet to mature into any of the more powerful demonic archetypes. However, do not mistake your infancy for helplessness. You are stronger than a mortal man, and can walk through flames unharmed.

    So to get that started let's fake attempting to strain against some force and pout. Then ask what the 'master' is up to, where we are, and whatever else is important to immediately notice.

    As an IMP you have small wings capable of gliding. You grow hungry and thirsty as mortals do, but at a slower rate. You do not need to sleep. As a Blue Imp, you are just over 4 feet. You cannot go "Invisible" but you can make other people...not notice you. It won't stop careful investigation, but as long as you wear something to cover up the horns and skin, most people won't give a shit if they see a flash of blue every now and then.

    Return to him, then give his forehead a small nudge, channeling some magical energy. No spell-casting involved, but the paranoia of what we just did to him should give him nightmares. After that, cast Firecracker to alert the entire household. Once the chaos has been sown, hop out a window and take flight.

    You take a blanket from his bed and drape it over yourself, casting the Notice-me-not spell on yourself before taking his spell book, a small, ratty affair that's very small and very old. It smells musty, and barely any magical aura radiates off of it.

    Walking out of the door, you find yourself in a small home, poorly lit but otherwise cozy. The smell of baking bread wafts from the oven and a plump woman with her hair tied in a bun is cleaning dishes. She doesn't even turn her head but calls out "If your one of Erics friends, then you should be heading off soon. Don't want t'be caught after curfew. There's a loaf on the table if y'want it, now be off."

    Devouring strong emotions will give you temporary surges of strength, but souls will provide you with permanent power.

    Taking the loaf of bread and holding it under an arm, you exit out the front door. The sun is setting, and you look around to get a good view of your surroundings. You seem to be on the outskirts of a city, right by the wall. It's very tall, visible above the houses. The crowds of people in the streets are slowly dispersing as guards call out for Curfew time. The people are predominantly light-skinned and dark-haired.

    Listening around as you wander the streets, you hear of a few rumors. The government is cracking down on Necromancy again, and 10 people were hanged in the last week alone. A troll has taken up residence in a cave outside of town and has been raiding caravans. The King has not committed any forces to the matter, and the citizens are getting concerned. Finally, the Crown Prince has announced his sponsorship of a new tradesman's guild.

    As an Imp, you have a general sense of when other demonic forces are present, but only of their presence or absence. You do not feel any presence at the moment.

    Magic. It's our greatest weapon, so may as well get better at it.

    Also, do we change in appearance? I'd imagine we grow a bit, maybe look a bit older and more commanding.

    Turn to the old man: 'Cease your whining. If you serve me well I will see to it that your afterlife is not as unpleasant as you think. If you displease me, however, I will personally throw you into the Lake of Fire and watch the Forked Beast tear you apart for all eternity.'

    Roll that Bluff. He's going in the Lake anyway, but we might as well get some use out of him.

    Also, I like this idea >>17978137 about Polymorph.

    Gonna just go with the highest roll as you guys are pretty much the only ones here. I'll be taking an hour or two long break real quick, and then start running this again.

    Your skin and flesh feel like quicksilver. Though not completely capable of changing internal form, you are now capable of manipulating your skin tone, hair color, and facial features. You can also make small changes to your physical structure.

    Succubus is a job that has a lot of potential for career advancement. After all, sex is one of the few things that a lot (like seriously, a fucking ton) of fucking morons are willing to sell their souls for. It's a sweet gig that could be a stepping stone to really fast advancement to something else later which doesn't involve having to have sex with worthless mortals.

    The issue is that I fear it would become fetish fuel. I agree that being a succubus is probably the most profitable route we could go in-character, but in terms of metagaming, I feel like it would attract lecherous cretins who would see it as fap-bait. Do you think there's any way to prevent that? If not, would you rather tolerate Those Guys or purposely go a route which stands a harder time being seen as purposely erotic?

    I don't think that /tg/ generally goes for fetish fuel unless it's made clear to them that's the intention.
    Remember Frost Giantess Quest?
    As for prevention, we can do it as I originally suggested, and pull an Emma Frost. Rather than actually having sex, just make the victim believe that they did through forced hallucinations.

    Even if we do get Those Guys though, I believe that they will be manageable and reasonable. It's /tg/, not /v/.

    I don't think we can get a contract to work unless we ACTUALLY do the act promised in the contract. Since the act is 'have sex' rather than 'make me think we had sex,' I think that it would be necessarily sexual. However, I would prefer if we had it fade to black or something and presented it as a means to contractually gain power rather than an act which actually grants stimulating gratification for us. THAT type of sex can be saved in the unlikely event that our character, in the distant future, gets a mutual lover.

    It's all in the wording. We can be vague and leading.

    Instead of making a contract that says
    "Your soul for one night of sex"
    Make one that says:
    "Your soul for one night of unimaginable pleasure".

    As long as we never specify what we're doing, it shouldn't be a problem. I do agree however that it should be a fade to black in either case. Might get pretty creepy otherwise.

    Ok, how about a summary of what's actually happened as you haven't read the thread?

    The demon got summoned by a very bad novice wizard. Escaping his bindings easily, they ran off into the streets. Going into the sewers, they found an old man, and entered into a contract for his soul. They killed a man as the contract required, and returned to grab the Old Mans soul. That's REALLY all that's happened.

    Chloan, you find yourself standing in front of an old man cleaning himself up as best he can after a weeping fit. You have claimed and devoured his soul and become a changeling through the ingested power. As you consider what to do next, a voice can be heard in the back of your skull, like a buzzing whine. Eventually, it coalesces into recognizable sentences.

    "CHLOAN, MY CHILD." It booms.

    You alter yourself to look as a human. Your horns shrink into your skull, your tail fuses into one of your legs, and your wings shrivel up into nubs. Your skin lightens in tone, and your eyes become a bright, but human green. You now look like any other one of the citizens of this city, though somewhat attractive. You still appear young.


    You must escape your binding to this world given by your summoner to return to the pits, or find a wizard to create a portal. However, bindings not actively maintained by the summoner naturally decay over time and can be forced asunder by a powerful enough demon.

    Actually, that was 1d100. I wasn't trying to roll to have it turn out well. That was just a dice roll still in my email field from a different quest. Unless he actually asks us to roll, I think that we only stand to hurt ourselves by rolling.

    That said, don't tell him about the consequences of breaking the deal. Those consequences are in every contract - you don't have to tell people about them. Just tell him the actual terms, not that you'll be foreclosing on the collateral that is his soul if he breaks the deal.

    Aiding him in the ritual, he begins chanting the words. The room visibly darkens, the candles flicker and go out, and eventually a dark form begins to shape itself inside the summoning circle. The cloud of malevolence tests the bindings, and finds them up to the task. It remains silent, before manifesting a face in the center of the dark cloud. A purple-skinned man with a topknot and a beard, with strong masculine features answers your call.

    This. Some bandages would help in the second case too, but this. If there's arterial spray, he'll need to be taken to someone who can perform an amputation. I expect that's not the case, though. If his femoral artery was nicked, he would likely have been dead long before we got there. It takes less than a minute to be dead outright - and unconscious far sooner - with a sliced femoral. So, tourniquet, pressure, release of pressure, and then making a bandage out of his shirt should work.

    rolled 6 = 6

    Well, from what I understand, we are aiming to be more powerful in the short term until our size stabilizes, a succubus in the medium term until we've acquired a lot of power, and some sort of demon queen in the long term as a goal we'll probably never reach but towards which we will always strive. So, we're looking for more deals to make until we become a succubus. So, I dunno, interesting soul-getting encounters, ideally with bigger risks having more than one soul as payoff, with smaller risks having just the one?

    As for drawing, I would suggest a drawing of our character in her natural demon form. In fact, I would suggest a new drawing at the start of each thread, to show how the character has progressed and what loot they've gotten. The next quest would probably show our preteen-looking blue demoness wrapped in a cheap, brown blanket as a sort of makeshift dress/toga, horns, tail, and hand-mouths clearly visible..

    Know what I mean?

    rolled 67 = 67

    Will you make the picture in advance or immediately leading up to the new thread? IF it's the former rather than the latter, will you post previews here before you have the finished drawing?
