    [Opening this for OP again, he's still having difficulties making threads.]
    Previous threads:

    You are CHLAON THE CHARRED, a minor, newly created Imp of the lowest order. You have, for the past week, been running around sowing havoc in the slums of a Nameless City in the frozen north. You have claimed a handful of souls within that week, and devoured them to gain power for yourself. Your sire, however, SAMAS TIRAZEL, has learned of your success and demanded your presence. And by demanded, he has forcibly summoned you to his Palace in the Pits of Hell.

    You stand before the Charnel Prince, the Soul-Glutton, dwarfed by his monstrous form. Even as a demon, it hurts the eyes to look directly, a massive, writhing cacaphony of mouths and tentacles, with a single, perfect, human form at its center.

    He has yet to speak.

    You shuffle your feet slightly, looking down at your still human-looking toes, before bowing down on your knees. As your forehead scrapes against the cold, wet stones of the floor, you hear his sibilant voice creeping inside your head once more.

    "My child, why do you avert your gaze? Do you fear me, pet? Do you think I have called you hear to punish you? You have done well, my child. Have you not claimed souls in my name? Have you not sown discord and havoc amongst the mortal races? Have you not served your own desires, and thus, my own? Stand, and discard the skin you wear. I want to look at my pet as she truly appears."

    You shed the disguise of human form, your hands forming claws, your tiny wings sliding free of your back, your stumpy tail bursting from your backside. Your skin darkens to it's normal blue as you open your mouth to speak.

    "I...I do not know why I am called, Master. That worries me."

    You hear a throaty chuckle reverberate around the room, not in your head.

    "We never assigned you, pet. Do you not remember? I was hardly done spawning you before you were called to the mortal realms. There is so much to teach you, so much you need to learn...subtlety, for one. I have been watching your adventures on the mortal planes, child. Already they advance to stop you. Do you truly think you could steal so many souls and not attract the ire of the Divine? It is but a trickle now, but as you continue to steal, the more they will try to stop you. As to that end...you are useful to me in that city, and assigning you elsewhere...well, that would be too easy now, wouldn't it?"

    You nod, if nothing else.

    "Now...we must find a sin for you, my pet. And I think I have the perfect one in mind, my little soul-glutton." As you look down, you see once more the souls of those you have taken them from burning brightly through your skin, illuminating you from the inside.

    "Is it not obvious, darling? You are a perfect glutton. You let nothing stand between you and your next meal, you think nothing of the consequences for devouring the soul-stuff of those you deal with. You have the hunger inside you, right now, don't you? Burning away, always driving you to take more and more until you burst! Even the most idiotic Imp shies from soul-gluttony on a scale such as yours. But you do not shy away, no, you EMBRACE it.

    As his chortling becomes uproarious laughter, the tendrils that make up his form begin to inch towards you, slowly growing closer. In your fear, you turn to run, but they whip out and grab you by the legs, dragging you up in the air. The blanket falls from you, and the tendrils wrap around you like a cocoon, leaving only your face uncovered. They pull your eyes open, wrench your jaw until it dislocates, and squeeze around your throat.

    "You are such a small thing, child...we need to change that."

    And with that, you are drawn into his form, and, thankfully, pass out. Occasionally you awake to great pain and worse nightmares. Your teeth are wrenched free of your jaw, and hard metal jabbed into their place. Your skin is stretched, torn, replaced, over and over. Your eyes are ripped out, allowed to heal, and ripped out once more. He never stops laughing, never stops telling you that you agreed to this.

    And as your torture draws to a close after what seems like an eternity, you realize he...he did what?


    >Belly of the Whale
    Your innards were removed, leaving only a single digestive sac. You have no hard internal structure, but have the muscular control to retain human shape.
    Your jaws have been strengthened to the point where you could bite through stone. Your strength overall is greater then that of a man.
    >Giant in Chains
    You were force fed and bloated, and bound with chains and sigils to a resemblance of your past form. You are far denser than anything of your size should be, and inhumanly tough. You can release the chains to grow, but binding yourself again pains and damages you as you force your bulk into a smaller cage.

    Wait wait wait, before we decide, we should figure out which one gives the most benefits to what we do.

    >Belly of the Whale
    So this basically means we can eat pretty much anything, and force ourselves through small spaces? Good for stealth, and combined with Soul-Thief, would make future upgrades easier, as we could swallow corpses whole.
    Again, synergizes well with Soul-Thief, as it makes the process of devouring corpses much easier. It also makes defending ourself much easier, as we can simply resort to fisticuffs instead of flashy, draining shock spells.
    >Giant in Chains
    Sounds like it would blow our cover rather easily. Being far denser than we should be would be easily discoverable, and the benefit of increased survivability doesn't really cancel that out. In addition, what does BECOMING HUGE do for us?

    >> Monster Quest !!2+7gWdDw/nh 02/22/12(Wed)15:10 No.18057343
    Oh ok, applications?

    >Belly of the Whale
    Enhances your shapeshifting to a considerable degree. It won't let you get rid of, or create new limbs, but it will allow you to alter the shape of what's already there by a considerable amount. You'll also be able to force yourself through small spaces as you no longer have hard internal structure.
    Should be pretty obvious. Enhanced strength and incredible biting capability, a huge combat boon. Biting will be awkward though.
    >Giant in Chains
    You can use the chains binding your bulk as weapons, become monstrously durable and hard to injure, but do not gain the ability to heal more easily. It's more like...ablative damage reduction. When you remove the chains, you become a giant, which is strong, but no tougher or stronger than a normal human of that size. About 20 feet tall, I'd say.

    Your innards were forcibly removed from your body until you were nothing more than a boneless sack flapping in the wind. It took a while to get used to the lack of bones, but eventually, without any aid from your chortling sire, you stood up.

    "Now my pet, we need to send you back to the mortal realms. It looks like your summoner needs your help again..."

    You already feel the tug of summoning pulling against your body, and you are helpless to resist as you are pulled once more into the summoning circle Eric has drawn in his now...quite neat and clean room.

    "There you are!" he exclaims exasperatedly.

    You teach him to cast a field of darkness to obscure the sights of men. Nothing you can't see through, of course...it would be silly to teach your student something that could harm you, wouldn't it?

    As the night goes on and the lesson continues, the mountain of food disappears bit by bit. As the sun sets, the pile of bread and sausage is gone, and the boy has managed to cast the spell once successfully.

    Ignoring the thoughts of dresses intended for a much more full figured woman, you wrap the shawl-blanket tighter around you, making sure to cover everything before heading out into the city. You alter your skin tone and hair colour to once again match that of the average woman here, short, wide-hipped, dark haired, light-skinned, green eyed.

    You go invisible just in case and head outside to begin a night of thieving. Your first target being a tailor. The House of Eric is quite close to the mercantile district, and you don't even have to duck under the walls in the sewers to get in. The guard presence seems higher, for some reason. And as you pass through a gate, you notice a tall man, in splendid, guilded armour. He wears no helmet, holding it in his lap. He seems to look right through you for a few seconds, but goes back to talking with a beautiful woman sitting behind him on his white steed. They laugh over something you can't hear.

    You find the tailors store in due time, but it's locked.

    "Poppa? Didn't mom tell you not to fall asleep in front of th' fireplace again? You know that's bad for you!"

    You wait until you can no longer hear footsteps before heading upstairs. Searching around, you find primarily womens dresses and mens overalls, and some nice shirts. Nothing fancy, more artisan-class clothes and finery. They could be spruced up by jewelry, but there's not too much you can do...

    That seems a nice thought. However, what I recall is the likely-divine-watcher that we passed on the way in. And that we want to save some effort for disappearing upon us being spotted on our way elsewhere. So, exhausting ourselves to better understand our limits is good, but not when we plan to do other things, like leave the building and go somewhere safe (presumably).

    Holding the dress draped over one arm, you sneak around to the back door and unlock it as quietly as you can. The door creaks open as you exit, and creaks even more as you close it behind you. You walk off in the night, still invisible. You return to Erics room without much difficulty, and stay invisible for an hour longer, at which point the exhaustion forces you to dismiss it. Without a clock, you can guess that you can stay unseen for about 2 hours before it overwhelms you.

    We are assuming that it is the same guard on shift when we get back.

    If it is, we wait whilst invisible or out of sight untill shift change and then enter.

    That's not really the problem. The fact stays that he saw us leave with the other guard. You think he will stay quiet after the guard disappears? So they'll search for us and question us, if they have any means of magical detection then they'll learn that something is off about us.

    Yes, before the sheer undigested power burns right through your body. It takes a moment to digest a soul, so it'll take a few seconds between each one.

    No. It is only the mortal champions and weakness of Demon Princes in comparison the Divine that stops them from ruling the mortal realms

    Is it the apprentice who is keeping us bound to this world?
    Is it possible to find a different source of power to bind ourselves to so as to keep us on this world?

    What DOES happen with the souls we eat?

    Ooh, this. That's a damn good question.

    Yes and yes.
    You digest them. They become a part of you, and you control exactly what happens to the disparate consciousnesses floating about inside you. Torture them, force them to experience pleasure forever, etc, etc, your choice. They cannot be resurrected while you live, and if you spend enough time, you can corrupt the soul and create a fledgling demon.

    Then... I honestly imagine we'll give them pleasure. We aren't terribly sadistic for a demon, just utterly amoral.

    why would anyone bother torturing/pleasuring the souls they take? Is there some benefit to it?

    Well, he said you can corrupt a soul into a fledgeling demon. I expect you would want to make the souls happy so that they would serve you willingly and happily.
