    [Opening this thread for OP, he is having some difficulties posting images right now]

    You are Chlaon the Charred, Imp of the Third Order, minor Changeling, Thief of Souls. Since your initial summoning by the inept "Wizard" Eric, you have escaped your petty bindings and begun your work on thieving the souls of mortals who dwell in this strange and unknown realm. You have been called by your Sire to return within the week to the Pits of Hell to report to him and negotiate a "Deal" of sorts. Eric has agreed to be a student of magic under your tutelage in exchange for servitude, and unbeknownst to him, a hidden clause in his contract will render his soul yours if he betrays you. You have also attained the services of a nameless old homeless man who you have consumed the soul of, who asked you to kill his former boss for the crime of firing him and his friends and replacing them with a single dwarf.

    It is currently night time, a curfew is in effect, and you have just saved a man from dying in exchange for his soul.

    Right, I'm here.

    Forgot to type this out in the opening post.

    The "Rules" of this quest is that the majority decides what happens. Roll-offs will happen, d20 based, when I can't really tell which side has more support. Don't roll for actions unless I ask for a d20, which will determine the success or failure of it.

    You cannot consume the mans soul, for you already have! (Fatass, I bet you don't even filter them and dilute your souls in the tears of innocent virgins.) You have gained two small mouths in the palms of your hands that can produce small, incomplex objects at will. However, producing too many in a short time will fatigue you.

    Right, abilities.

    You are an IMP. You do not need to breathe or sleep, but you must still eat and drink on occasion. You are immune to the effects of cold, can shapeshift slightly (Primarily facial features and skin tone), and cast limited magic. The spells you know are SHOCK, a buzzing electric field from your palms. NOTICE-ME-NOT, a minor glamour that renders you sorta-kinda-not-really invisible, or at the very least, easily ignored. DARKNESS, which creates a cloud of darkness that obscures vision not enhanced by infernal methods such as your own.

    And now, tiny little mouth-hands that can create simple, small objects.

    Exercising your will, you decide to test your new ability. You attempt to produce a small nugget of precious gold...

    You hold up your right hand, and the small hand coughs and splutters, before extending a long tongue. Unwrapping, it reveals...a single gold coin, otherwise featureless. You'll have to learn what the currency around these parts looks like before you truly begin counterfetting properly.

    The man at your feet begins to stir, awakening after your crude attempts at first aid.

    "Wh-what happened? My leg hurts..." He moans, his voice slightly hoarse from screaming.

    Casting a quick spell of Notice-Me-Not, you ditch the meatsack and go around looking for more souls to steal.

    The mother and her starving children still exist, and there are numerous nameless bums panhandling at every street corner. Children in ragged clothing run about playing, and you realize, rather slowly...you're in a shithole. An absolute shithole. The buildings are worn and disheveled, the people are poor and filthy, and there isn't a guard in sight. This seems to be a place abandoned by the rest of humanity.

    Wandering over to the markets, you thank the stars for your knowledge of magic. Still appearing as a human child of approximately 14 years, you'd normally not be trusted around this area. Thankfully, with magical aid, no one seems to notice you, or the fact that other than tattered breeches, your only real clothes are a blanket thrown around you like a shawl. You pick and peck and thieve around, stealing hams and sausages from merchant stalls when the fat men running them aren't looking. Eventually, you have almost too much to carry and return to the slums. While you may be easily ignored, such an abundance of food can't easily be left alone...within a short time, one of the children, looking to be about 6 years is pulling at your shawl, asking for food. His mother pulls him back, apologizing for his rudeness. She still stares hungrily at your bounty, and the gauntness in their cheeks is evident of the trials they've been through.

    "You know, I could give you some of this..." You say to the mother of two. She smiles, revealing a few missing teeth "And a bit more!" You say, fishing the gold coin from your pocket. Her eyes light up at the sight, and it's obvious that your tiny little coin is worth quite a bit. "You'd only have to give me something small."

    She looks hesitant now, a bit distrusting. The deal seems a bit TOO good for the moment.

    "Your soul, my lady. I'd very much like your soul."

    She backs off, pushing her children behind her.

    She appears unconvinced.

    "You look like a child. You should not be out, eh, thieving souls. What you even going to do with them? Who your master eh? Probably some stupid wizard, too big for britches."

    Pressing your hands against the womans chest, you shock her just long enough to loosen her grasp. You begin running away, as she convulses on the ground, the cloud of darkness lasting just long enough to cover your escape. You run for longer than you thought capable until your legs ache and burn. You dart into the sewers, and the noxious smell hits you again like a fist to the face. As luck would have it, as you collapse down on the ground, you hear a familiar voice.

    "Eh, wotsit? What the fuck are you running from? Thought you were a big bad scary demon."

    Why? Collateral is perfectly legal? I suspect this business model would be legal in the US today.

    I suspect we'd be better off trying to make a run at being a legitimate bank. You'll make much more money sharking in the short term, but if you offer competitive interest rates, you'll end up getting a fuck of a lot more customers. In a volatile market, with no social security, we're going to get a lot of souls - hell, we'd get a lot of souls even if we charged no interest at all.

    You see a shithole, I see a volatile market with no social security. We'll make bank because we'll be the bank.

    Also, convince local authorities that easy credit is great for the economy.

    "Take me to Old Jimmy!" You say imperiously. The old man snorts at your tone, but says nothing as he leads you through the sewers. Through winding passages and fume-filled hallways you travel, until eventually you arrive at a camp. It's small, and there's only one person visible, a pretty woman with too much makeup and too little clothing stirring a pot of...something unidentifiable. She smiles at the Old Man, and he tips his hat to her. He leads you to a pile of rags, and kicks it lightly.

    "Eh, wot? Whatchawant?" The pile of rags reveals itself to be a skeletal man with a long white beard and eyes crusted over with disease. He coughs blood on to his hands, before feeling around with his hands for a stick. He picks himself up on it, and feels around again before finding the old mans shoulder.
    "Whatcha want?"
    "I found someone who can help you. Well, make your last few days...a bit more comfortable."
    "Who is it?"
    "She cute?"

    The Old Man brings you a dirty glass. You pour a strong drink, bland and flavourless aside from the strong, potent quantity of alchohol. You offer it to Jimmy, and he takes it hesitantly, his hands shaking. He takes a sip, and licks his lips. He then drains the whole glass, and sits down in the pile of rags.

    "Good stuff, good stuff..." he mutters. He holds out his glass for more. You pour him another glass.

    "You know...I was an adventurer once." He takes another gulp. "We were a right crew, we were." You pour him another glass. "We...didn't work out."

    He begins telling his tale, of how he was the son of a blacksmith in a small town out in the country. He had eyes for an elven maiden who lived out in the woods, and in an attempt to earn her favour, gathered his friends, made them swords, and set off to slay a troll. The Troll-Witch dwelled deep in the caves beneath the forest, and emerged occasionally to steal children. His voice slurs as he talks about how they stalked it for days in those lightless tunnels, being picked off one by one. Eventually, only he was left, and he ran.

    He ran, ran for his life and left those tunnels with the cackles of the Troll-Witch still in his ears. He walked back to town, head held low as mothers wept for their lost sons and the Elven Maiden turned her gaze away from him. His father disowning him for the great waste, he wandered from town to town, begging and stealing for his every meal. One day, after he had begged and stolen enough to appear respectable, he returned to his town with a fat purse and fine clothing, and found it empty. The homes burnt, the bones of his friends and family strewn about on the ground. In his heart, he knew what had happened, and picked up the sword once more and returned to those lightless tunnels. Searching for days, he finally found the lair of the Troll-Witch, and slew her. Leaving the riches of her lair behind, he wandered from town to town, hunting monsters, rooting out the filth of the world, and gaining a name for himself. Eventually, young men and women began to follow him. heads filled with the thoughts of adventure and glory. He made friends, lovers, family, and eventually, found himself a wife. A young woman, half his age, head full of dreams, had stolen his heart.

    Before the man retired, he told his friends that they had to keep the dream alive. A guild, as one would call it, to teach young men with heads full of dreams and hearts filled with anger to swing a sword and make a plan, so that no more frightened young men would find themselves in the lightless tunnels below the world, alone and afraid, hunted by great beasts.

    The guild prospered and its coffers filled with the treasures of those monsters slain, but eventually, they questioned why a weary old man with more children then he knew what to do with was telling them how they did things. They knew not what he had done. They knew not what he had bled for.

    Cast out, he could find no work to sustain himself. His children abandoned him, his wife starved, and eventually, he found his way to the sewers to die.

    As his tale ends, Jimmy vomits over himself, and drops the still full glass. He coughs, and doesn't stop. As the Old Man and Carlotta walk over, concern on their faces, he continues coughing and spluttering, blood pouring from his lips, his eyes popped out with effort.

    Eventually, he takes one last, rattling breath, and falls to the ground, his head cracking against the moist stone.

    Carlotta buries her face in the Old Mans chest, weeping silently for Old Jimmy.

    You walk up to the corpse, and remove something trying to float up through his clothing. It's worn, and scarred, and missing several pieces, but it's bright and blue and blazing. Old Jimmys soul is in your hands.

    You force the soul between your teeth, swallowing it down with difficulty. It's power fills you, but you hide it away for now. It burns away inside you, left alone.

    You walk up to Carlotta, and she turns towards you, wiping tears from her eyes, her makeup running down her face.

    "What do you need?"

    She bites her lip, before sitting down by the pot again. She stirs it half-heartedly, as she begins to speak.

    "I, well, uhm...Tom's probably told you enough already...A certain, uhm, gentleman, feels that I'm behind on payments. So he hit me...a lot. And..and he told me that, if I showed my face again, he'd kill me. My parents are...they're worried, they don't know where I am, I haven't been outside in days...I need him, uhm, dead..."

    Our shocking hand has proven to be pretty lethal if we hit a person with it more than once, actually. We used it to fry a man's heart.

    Well we could probably produce a small knife with out mouth hands to finish off a shocked opponent, or just find a bottle somewhere. It's not like humans are especially durable. Shape shifting would let us entice Lust as well as moving unnoticed, invisibility covers that as well but might make killing people easier as we could invisibly sneak up on someone and shank them in the kidney.

Probably wait until he's along somewhere or until we can find a good place to lure him away. Then we either taze him from behind, then continue to shock him while strangling him, or, if we lured him, convince him to kiss us or something, taze him during the physical contact, and then strangle him while shocking him.

    Turning invisible, you begin stalking the streets, searching for the pimp. By the physical description she gave you, he's short, rather chubby, and he tries to grow a beard but can't manage more than a mustache.

    You begin following the man invisible, watching as he goes around demanding money from harlots and having those that can't pay beat by his thugs. Eventually, the sun sets, and he heads to a bar. Though a violent man, he's seemingly free with his money, and buys rounds for many people. The man doesn't drink anything himself, however, preferring to order large and lavish meals. Eventually, stuffed to the gills, he heads back to his home, a three story affair in the nicer part of town. His thugs leave for home, and he enters, locking the door behind him. There are two guards at the front door, the windows appear to be shut tight, and there are no alleyways to sneak around behind the building.

    You awaken, slowly, in a dimly lit room. You try to move your arms, but fail. They are tied behind your back, and you sit in a chair. As you look around, you see that the walls and floor are covered in glowing red sigils. The Pimp stands in front of you, flanked by two guards. He pulls out a chair and sits in it, and looks you in the eye.

    "Now, what do we have here? A little burglar, peeping in on my business? Or are you something more..."

    He walks over to a pit filled with glowing coals, and removes a poker, cherry red at its tip.

    "I'll tell you, but only if you leave the goons outside. They're scaring me." Then if he sends them out, shift the fat to our tits, then shock this motherfucker until he stops twitching. If he doesn't send them out, do the same, but immediately. If we can't get the guards to leave, be prepared to be shocking every which way. We only need just a touch to get someone convulsing on the ground, so we should use that to our advantage.

    "I'll tell you, just send those two outside. They're...scaring me." You try to look as terrified as possible, and it seems to convince him. After a bit of chin-rubbing and contemplation, he tells them to get outside.

    "She's tied up anyway, and you double-checked the knots."

    As he's turned away and the goons are walking out the door, you shift most of the fat from your arms to your chest. While this does constrict your chest, your arms are free to slip through the rope at any time.

    "Now, as you promised..."

    "Come closer, I'll tell you."

    He hesitates, but steps closer. He turns an ear to you as you move your head closer, and as you free your arms, you whisper "Carlotta" into his ear. As he turns in shock, you wrap your hands around his throat and turn on the lightning. The sizzling pop of melting fat and bubbling flesh can soon be heard, but the drubbing of the hot poker against your body causes you to cry out involuntarily as it burns your flesh. He dies, but not before his guards burst in to a room full of...nothing. His corpse lies on the ground, and an invisible you darts past the guards and down the stairs. They hear you running down them, and give chase. You reach the front door, but...it's locked!

    Furiously trying to unlock the door, notice the guards barreling down the stairs. You rush over to the side of it, and wait for them to reach the bottom before jumping on one and wrapping your hands around his throat, shocking the life out of him. In his convulsions, he falls on top of the other, and while they try to untangle the knot of limbs and muscle, you find the right latch to open the door. You run outside, and realize that it's...daybreak?

    You run and run, until your legs burn with pain and you can run no longer. Crawling over to a nearby sewer hatch, you go to what is becoming your home, and collapse.

    You have one day left, you realize, before you need to head back to hell and answer to your sire.

    You rest, lying in place fully awake, until you feel as if you can move again. Heading off through the sewers, you eventually find Carlotta and the Old Man again. The corpse of Ol' Jimmy no where in sight, the pot of stuff put away. They sit down, talking to each other.

    "It...is done." You gasp, your hands still covered in the meaty char of a dead mans neck. She looks at you, afraid, before standing up. She's shorter than you now, you realize. Just slightly.
