    You are CHLAON THE CHARRED, Minor Imp of the Arcane Order. You have been wandering about a human city, advancing your plans and stealing souls in the name of your sire. You have also have managed to meet the Crown Prince, Karl. He has shared with you his hatred of demons, and has recruited you in helping him to hunt them down.

    But that's in the past.

    You have just recently stolen a soul from a man who could not pay off his debt. In exchange for paying it off, you have tricked him into giving it up unknowingly. You now possess a small kitten, which you for some reason asked for as the "Obvious" portion of your contract.

    The man has left, a smile on his face and a sack of silver coins in his palms.

    You stand in the middle of a street, currently appearing as a very average man in baggy pants and a vest, in the poorer district of town.


    (Sorry guys, for the delay. My computer sorta...died. I'm working off a temporary replacement, and will get one of my own very soon. Hopefully we can get this show back on the road.

    >Walk around town, looking for opportunities.

    You tuck the mewling kitten into your vest pocket, making a mental note to take care of it later.

    You wander about the streets of the city, keeping an ear to the ground and your eyes open to potential contracts.

    You hear a few rumors along the way...

    >Did you hear? They say the elves took an entire village this time! The king says he's got his wizard on it, but nothings happened.
    >They say someone's been digging up graves just outside the gates. They're posting guards now, I heard, to try and catch him. Do you think they'd be able to stop the bloke if he's a real necromancer?

    But enough rumors. You're searching for the poor, weak, and destitute. The most likely to give up their souls.

    The orphan girls, looking to be on the cusp of adolescence, are still begging for food and water just a few blocks from your summoners home.

    You hear a woman pleading with a man inside a fancy home, before she begins to scream in pain and fear.

    You stop as you hear the woman begin to scream. It's...not like you want to be altruistic or anything. This is only for the soul, yeah.

    You look around the house. Eventually, you find a window and peer in. You see a young woman, thick-set and wearing a torn gown. She is lying on the ground, crying, as an older man with a thin mustache shouts at her, calling her a whore and a bitch. He begins rifling through the drawers as she lies weeping on the ground, and produces a small knife.

    go invisible and help her kill the man. Hold him while she stabs him or something.

    Stay invisible and tell her that someone will find out about the murder and tell her that she will hang for this.
    unless she lets you(the disembodied voice) cover this up. All she has to do is sell your soul to you in exchange for freedom.

    >Help her kill the man

    Deciding quickly, you elect to help the woman. You become invisible, and pull the window up a crack. As the man turns at the noise, you slide in through the small opening. As you flop on to the ground, he starts barking about how he's going to kill the woman for what she did.

    He begins advancing, and you extend your leg, tripping him. The woman gets up off the ground as the man screams in frustration, and she begins trying to wrestle the knife from him. You hold his arms down as she does so, and she, with relative ease, wrests the knife from the mans hand, and throws it away. She runs outside, screaming for help.

    Damnation! You curse inwardly as the man gets up. He goes to pick up the knife.

    >Just kill him off

    You stand on your own two feet, and go over to the man. You trip him again as he rushes for the door, and begin kicking him in the ribs. He begins to mewl in pain, and he curls up in a ball. He drops the knife, and you begin kicking him in the face until he stops moving. Still invisible, you slide out through the window again. Though currently unseen, your shoes are now wet with blood, and there is a tooth embedded in the sole of your boot.

    You hear the woman return with guards, and you hear their gasps as they discover the scene of your crime.

    You make haste and leave the scene of your crime. You are beginning to feel tired. You can't stay invisible forever, it's beginning to exhaust you.

    You are still coated in blood. The kitten is still in your vest pocket. It is still mewling.

    You find a fountain and wash the blood off yourself and the clothes. You then wander about until you find a clothesline, and steal something that looks like it fits, and switch into them. You are now wearing a nice jacket, a simple shirt, and nice pants.

    You walk back, now visible, to your Summoners home. Making a nest for the kitten out of Erics old clothes, you give it a bowl of milk warmed on the stove and take a nap.

    When you awaken, the sun is getting ready to set. Eric is in the room, petting the kitten. You can hear his mother cooking downstairs.

    >Go meet the spymaster.

    You suddenly remember that you need to deliver the altered demonic text to Karls spymaster. Retrieving it from Erics room, you take on the guise of Chell, the completely average woman who looks just like any other in this city.

    You go out to the center of the city once more, harassed by guards wondering what a woman in such poor clothing such as yourself could be doing there. It gets quite annoying.

    Eventually, after you frustratedly explain the situation, a guard decides to just take you to the castle himself.

    The guard is short, red-haired, and rather young, with the fuzzy growth of an almost-but-not-quite-beard on his chin. You are brought inside without much pomp or circumstance. Eventually you are brought to Karl, and he's wearing princely clothing for once, instead of his armor. By him is a thin man, who reminds you of a jackal, wearing dark leather and a mask that obscures his face.

    "Ah, Chell. I assume you brought the book? This is my spymaster, The Wizard Rorix. Once he's done reading the book, we can get your dress ready."

    You nod, and hand over the small book. The wizard flips through it offhandedly, and whispers in Karls ear.

    "Where did you find this book?" Rorix rasps.

    He looks at you, and then the book.

    "That would explain the missing pages...But nevertheless, it must be investigated. I'll send my men out to retrieve the rest of the wagon."

    Karl beams. "Excellent! We're making progress on capturing the fiends who are spreading this filth about. But, let us get your dress ready. It will be important for the festival."

    "Why is that?"

    He looks at you. "I almost forgot to ask...would you accompany me at the Parade? The Prince cannot be seen alone, and the noble women father has selected...between you and me, they are self-obsessed strumpets."

    "I would be honored to go to the festival with you."

    He smiles broadly. "Excellent! Now, let's get you a dress." The spymaster sighs as he leads you away. The both of you remain relatively silent as you wander the halls, until you come to a small room. A thin, regal looking woman and a handful of young girls sit around, looking bored. They seem to perk up as you and the Prince appear.

    "And this is the woman?" The regal looking one asks.

    "Yes indeed. Give her your best, Lucilda."

    Lucilda nods. Karl leaves the room, mumbling something about not wanting to see "Frills and lace" all over the place.

    Lucilda leads you to the center of the room, and begins taking your measurements, as the girls flutter about the room doing their work.

    It takes hours, but eventually, the work is completed. You didn't know just standing there could take so much effort, but it did. Lucilda tells you to do whatever you like, but to be back in an hour.

    You seem to have been left alone inside the castle.

    You wander the halls, looking for a library. It's rather surprising how few guards there are in the castle, as you don't encounter anyone in your searching, until you eventually find a room. It's filled to the brim with books and scrolls and tomes. You begin reading through, searching for something that can aid your magical growth.

    Let's see, treaty, treaty, tax report, treaty, crime reports, this all seems fairly normal. It seems that the "Royal Library" doesn't have much in the ways of magical tomes. There is, however, a locked door that is labelled "KEEP OUT".

    You elect to form a skeleton key. The mouth in your hand opens up, belching up a key. You try to jiggle it in the lock, but it doesn't work. In fact, the door seems to absorb the key, and the lock seals itself, becoming a blank metal surface.

    Welp. That's likely set off a magical alarm, time to leave.

    Time to leave. Let's check if our dress is ready.

    Quickly check if there is any sort of alarm!

    You decide to leave, thinking that the door probably set off a magical alarm of some sorts. You begin wandering the halls, checking to see if your dress is ready yet. You eventually, after an hour of wandering the labyrinthine halls, find the room again. You need to familiarize yourself with the castle, you think, as you open the door.

    The woman are lounging around, a finished dress in the center of the room. It is fancy, red, accentuated with themes of harvest and bounty, and ornamented simply.

    "Ah, you finally return to us. The dress is almost finished, we just need to do some test-fitting...do you have the time?"

    Then, how much of our presence could that key we formed and tried to open the door with reveal if inspected by a seasoned magic user?

    Or better formulated, how much of US was in that key?
    >> Monster Quest !!2+7gWdDw/nh 03/27/12(Tue)14:58 No.18478335
    You produce things from your own flesh and energy. Any seasoned magic user could, if he was knowledgable in such clairvoyant magic, discern who made the key.

    Possibly. It depends on the tests they do.

    We need to get that key back.
    We could confess to the prince that we tried gaining access to the locked room and that it ate our skeleton.
    Apologize profusely and blame it on our inquisitive nature, one does not simply stop being an investigator, it's part of who we are after all.

    ate our skeleton key
    Given the nature of what we are meant to be investigating, the last word is rather important here.
    >> Anonymous 03/27/12(Tue)15:03 No.18478421
    and this is why I wanted to eat the wall...

    Very well then, we must assume it is only a matter of time till we are discovered, take the dress, then quickly leave the castle and set ourselves on that search for the cult. We need to prove our worth and come up with results which we present if we are accosted by the Prince after which we 'admit' we tried to secure unallowed entrance just in order to be able to better...

    You know what, screw that, just take the dress, go to the prince and ask for forgiveness BEFORE we are accosted. He seems like the kind who appreciates the sinner seeking his own redemption. That redemption brought via setting extra-effort into investigating that cult.
    >> αlpharius !yJOmegoN4Y 03/27/12(Tue)15:06 No.18478445
    If we play this right, we won't have to reveal we're a demon.

    Indeed, my good man


    I elect for us to admit ourselves to the Prince, and ONLY the prince, for ourselves to possess some minor magical ability that has its uses in our line of work -we had told him that we are a 'spy for the church' or something of that kind, yes?- which is also coupled with an inherent interest to improve our capability, also coupled with our inquisitive nature which, as we have proven earlier, brought him hard evidence and at least several steps closer to his own goal, for which indeed it had been our sole interest to gather more information, while forgetting that we are indeed not on unfriendly grounds in our eagerness to serve.

    In short, excuse ourselves to him on grounds of our willingness to work with and for him. For the Good of All.

    Also avoid looking at his moustache as it may rob us of our speech, if only for the moment.

    You try on the dress, feeling nervous about what could happen to the key. The women poke and prod with needles and string as they adjust the dress to your frame. Eventually, they remove it, considering the job done, and allow you to leave wearing your old dress, the new being too fancy for casual wear.

    You search for the prince, asking around for his location. Eventually, you find him talking to the spymaster about the book. The spymaster Rorix turns to face you first, having heard you from a distance away.

    "Ah, Chell." He rasps, putting the evil tome down on a table.

    "We were just looking for you." The Prince says, his expression looking...worried?

    "You didn't go into the library, did you? The alarm went off not too long ago."

    "I did go into the library..." You admit.
    But before they even open their mouths, you raise your hands.

    "Because I'm interested in learning magic! There, I admit it."

    Karl raises an eyebrow. Rorix remains expressionless under his mask.

    "I'm a very, very, minor wizard. I barely know how to cast a spell, and I haven't been able to find a teacher...I was hoping that your library would have something I could teach myself off of. And, well...I'm a very curious person. When I saw the door, I just had to try and get in, do you understand?"

    Karl nods. The spymaster however, begins to laugh. It sounds almost like a barking cough, and he doubles over. The prince pats him on the back, trying to help, and eventually Rorix recovers from his fit.

    "Minor wizard? Minor wizard indeed, to make such a key. I've never seen anything like it! As soon as I extricated it from the lock, it melted in my hands, burning my gloves. I almost lost a finger to it. Clever indeed, to put such a trap into your creation..."

    He looks to the prince, and then to you.

    "You wouldn't perhaps...be interested in an apprenticeship? I may not know the fancier, flashier magic, but I know what works and what doesn't."

    Karl nods. "It's true! You won't find a better Seer in all the land."
    >> αlpharius !yJOmegoN4Y 03/27/12(Tue)15:30 No.18478766
    Well that turned out better than expected.
    Though if he is a seer, apprenticing to him could end up revealing our identity.

    >> Anonymous 03/27/12(Tue)15:30 No.18478768
    My vote is to humbly decline the offer. This reeks of a trap to me. What if agreeing to be his apprentice counts as some kind of binding contract forcing us to be his thrall, and he already knows what we are?

    On the other hand, the soul of a wizard would be something else... but just be careful here, we're playing with fire.
    >> αlpharius !yJOmegoN4Y 03/27/12(Tue)15:32 No.18478784

    We are already a servant of the church, to accept tutelage from another would be a betrayal.
    Though we would not decline any small tips or help that could be given.
    >> Anonymous 03/27/12(Tue)15:32 No.18478794
    If he's a Seer, then it's only a matter of time before he sees through the disguise. But we can't turn down the offer outright as that would be rude.

    Say that we would like to but we have to finish our mission then get permission from our handlers in the Church before we can try it.
    >> Monster Quest !!2+7gWdDw/nh 03/27/12(Tue)15:35 No.18478823
    "Erm, I'd love to! But...I have to finish my current mission first, and then maybe I could ask for permission. I'm very busy."

    The spymaster remains quiet for a few seconds.

    "Well...alright. What is it that you need to do first? I'd very much hate to see such a talent go to waste..."
    >> Anonymous 03/27/12(Tue)15:36 No.18478841

    We might be able to decline the offer on grounds of us trying to keep a 'low profile'...

    But honestly, I see no reason to, I say we go with the offer, but keep watch over any needles or anything with which he might attempt to remove blood or skin from us for him to examine, if he has any suspicions.

    And assume that he possesses suspicions we must, as he is indeed a seasoned user of the arcane arts it seems. It is likely that he seeks to confirm said suspicions, but will not tell the Prince of them until he knows more, if we accept the offer that is.

    However, if we decline, then it is possible that he will either tell the Prince to keep an eye on us on grounds of his suspicions, which he will certainly tell him or further investigate our claims of being a spy of the church.

    I vote we accept the offer and take care of ourselves.
