Welcome ladies and gentlemen to another edition of Succubi Quest! Did you know that SupCom is one of those games where it is VERY easy to lose track of time? I certainly didn’t know, and boy those four hours flew by fast! Last time on Succubi Quest, it was more of a relaxed sort of session as we recovered from our wounds. We went to the bathhouse, blew up some bandits heads with Brooklyn’s martial arts skills, went to the library to grab a book about the history of Greed Demons, then ran a DnD game for our friends. Much prodding was to be had about Brooklyn’s new form, in addition how DM Brooklyn dealt with a min-maxer. We now continue we were left off, where Brooklyn will be retiring home for the night.

After a good game with your friends, you retire back to your place. “I’m home.” you say as you enter your house. “Hi Brooklyn!” Mina says waving as you enter. She must’ve healed up more than you thought if she can wave like that. “How were your friends?” Brodin asks as he takes a bite of one of your cookies. “Full of annoying question about my new state. But on the bright side they didn’t seem to mind.” you tell them as you put your stuff away. “Well they should! You’re still you, regardless whenever or not you’re in a different body!” Mina says. “By the way, some guy named ‘Lance’ came by to see if ‘Sara’ was here.” Brodin says. “He did!?” you ask, feeling your heart nearly skipping a beat from happiness. “Yup! He wondered whenever or not you’d be free tomorrow!” Mina says. “He said he was sorry about not being able to contact you sooner, as he’s been REAL busy at work lately!” “...Well its the weekend and I have nothing planned.” you tell Mina. “What about getting rid of Blizzarios’s body?” Brodin asks. “...OK that’s probably somewhat of a pressing issue.” you reply. You then wonder about what other planned things you wanted to do this weekend, mainly to get involved with the noble girls, the date with Lance, and probably get to cleaning up the shrine. But needless to say, it’s been a rather long day for you. Is there anything you want to ask or do with either Mina or Brodin before you go to sleep?
>>22760558If either of them knows a use for a no-head pride demon body.If not, any good ideas of how to get rid of it. Perhaps suggest eventually framing a bandit group of his death?
>>22760657I don't think anyone would buy it.
>>22760657Ada's original plan called for the Pride Demon going to be a victim of various power struggles that'd happen soon after Blizzarios was taken care of.Thing is you never did talk to Ada about how to get rid of the body.
As long as the body isn't found in the shrine i don't think it matters much. Remember the story that will come out is a bounty hunter got him.
Yeah, I think we should just sleep
>>22760814Very well, sleep it is.Typing now.
“I’m tired... I think I’m going to turn in for the night now.” you tell Brodin and Mina.“Yea it’s getting to be about that time. I think I’m going to head out to the bar foa bit.” Brodin says getting up.“Yea... I’m getting tired as well.” Mina says yawning.“See you two girls in the morning.” Brodin waves as he leaves your house.“Night Brodin.” you say as you begin disrobing.After doing the various bits needed before one heads to bed, you get under the covers. Without saying a word, Mina cuddles very closely against your back.“...You know you don’t need to do that anymore since your body temperature is back to normal now.” you tell her.“...And that’s a reason because~?” Mina asks.You can only smile at this, shifting yourself back against her more, feeling Mina against your back as you both begin to fall asleep.******You wake up new morning, stretching yourself awake as small rays of sunshine can be seen through the curtains in your house. Sitting up, you can see Mina lying down next to you and Brodin passed out drunk on the carpet in front of the fireplace. All’s right in your... unique new life....Well minus the fact that you’re a woman, but two out of three isn’t so bad.You get up, heading over to the fireplace to make yourself some morning tea. While the kettle boils, you check your bandages on your arm. You are certainly healing faster, in fact you guess that by tomorrow you should be fully healed up. You give them a quick change, and during so you find out that most of your bandages in the first aid kit are nearly gone.While your tea continues to boil, you begin to wonder how you should spend your day, and what you should do next in the more short term of things.
Someone else still plays SupCom?Good heavens.You have Steam, by chance? Assuming you're talking about Supcom 1/FA (not that SC2 weaboo scum) maybe we can get a game set up.Otherwise, continue on, OP
>>22761130I do, but computer is being shit and cant play anything without it shutting down on me...gotta get it checked
>>22761122I think short to medium term we want to get a solid base of operations and funding in this town, before we start gathering the numbers we need to accomplish anything.To do that we need to do the following:1. Gain control of the government of the town2. Gain a reliable source of funding. (See 1)3. Get the girls nice and corrupted.4. Get the queens enough power to turn them into succubi.5. Get access to some rituals for our cultists to help string them along.6. Increase our personal power.
>>22761130I used to play Supcom1 some time ago before my laptop's graphics card spazzed out. I never got to play SupCom FA, so I'm doing that now.I often like to watch replays, but sadly none of the replays work for me >>.As for my Steam name, the same name as I run the Quest with
>>22761130i have 1 but is on 360, not PC... no FA for me...but; back to the game...Todays to-do listSara's 2nd date with Lance.(forget alias that deals with noble girls) teach them some more, do some personality testing on the sly, see which ones would make good allies/subordinates and what clan they would best fit in.I still think starting a 'Magic Journal' is a good idea, it would allow us to work on magical research at our own pace, maybe do a bit, hit a mental block, go liberate another Bandit camp, some political and social intrigue, then back to the research with new sources of inspiration and a bit more experience on hand.First topic of research; Healing Magic. Don't want a repeat of the aftermath of the Blizzario fight... that and we could keep our allies in the fight for longer.
is it possible to give our hardlight/Soligrams ranged attacks? can we make them(Soligrams or lasers) out of ultra-violet or other frequencies that people can't see?
>>22761389"The thing about me is that their are so many me's "
>>22761389At higher levels of light magic, you can give the holograms ranged attacks yes.
>>22761122Brodin can dispose of the rest of the body easily, it's part of Death Control. I think we should practice some magic stuff, set up a late evening date with Lance, maybe around 9 or so. Meet with Amanda earlier, around 4-5, maybe have a lesson with her and the other nobles until it's Date time.
>>22761355Sara is the persona you used to deal with the noble girls.Also aside from long term planning, I mainly also wondered what you'd be doing as Brooklyn's next action.
>>22761355I think we need rituals for the cultists more than we need healing right now. Also, annihilator shot is currently at basic. Shamfrul display!
>>22761475Or we could have a Lunch date with Lance. That actually sounds better, it makes our schedule more flexible for the noble girls.So set that up, make sure we're wearing something nice.
>>22761508seconding this motion.
>>22761462ok, another Question since we can bend light and shoot lasers can we bend the lasers to shoot around corners or passed cover?
>>22761561You can do that at the current level of control yes, but the more powerful the laser the harder it'll be to bend.Also yes, you can fire lasers outside of the normal visible spectrum, but the range on these will be reduced.
...Wait a second... Brodin’s a Reaper. He should be able to dispose of Blizzarios’s body in addition to the bandits without any problems whatsoever. Well that’s one massive problem off of your plate. Now just to take care of your other ideas... You think that a lunch date with Lance would probably be in order with Lance today. It’s quick, easy to fit in, and allows you time to do some things with the noble girls later on today. Seeing as how he dropped the message off last night, you can assume that his day is probably mostly free today, so you’ll make a small note to get to the barracks at around noon. After pouring yourself a cup of tea, you notice that it’s about 8:05 AM. More than enough time to try to sneak in some basic magic training you gather. But what to train is the question in of itself.(Yea Annhiliator is at basic, but the good news is that the power is based on your controls. Levelling up the Annhiliator shot will mainly unlocked new modes or bonuses for it)
>>22761717still voting for teaching ourselves healing magic....and making a journal of it...
>>22761717How high level a power would "broken sight" be. (Aka, the ability to tell at a glance whether a succubi is broken)
>>22761717I say we focus on continuing our work with Light/Darkness Magic, we don't want to overgeneralize.
>>22761761None. That just comes with good ol' deduction.
>>22761827Not even as a unique ability? It does profoundly effect the physci of the recipient and does have an atheric component.
I vote we work on Annhiliator or figuring out how to store/enchant spells/items
>>22761848It does effect the psyche yes, but it does not have an aetheric component.The ones who'd have the 'easiest' time figuring out which ones are broken are probably Ayarian's with their mind reading ability, but if they block (or worse, mislead) the mind scan results, you could be in a world of trouble.
>>22761953So its basically a mental condition then? In that case a well designed psych exam should be able to detect it with a high degree of accuracy. Also, misleading these kinds of psychiatric tests is virtually impossible IRL.
>>22762017If, somehow, we can convince them to take a test without blowing our cover...
>>22762017lol "Mina i want you to make me feel so jolly i want to dance. My objective is to see how long i can resist."
>>22762105...If we create an organization, such tests would be mandatory on a regular basis for everyone. For succubi, this would be no different than polygraph tests used by the US government.
>>22762017>a well designed psych examWhere are we going to get one of those? I don't think designing psych exams is in Brooklyn's skill set. New objective: find a succubus shrink?
>>22762017>>22762143It would probably be easier to get our Suggestion high enough and then ask the succubi.
>>22761717Let's get that aura hiding so that we actually have it next time we need it.>>22762162I don't think suggestion goes that high.
>>22762162humm secrete suggestion "if your broken tell me" or "why do you want to join"
[1/2] You decide to try and develop your skills with your newfound ability, the “Annihilator” beam. Certainly a potent ability, and quite handy to boot. ...Right after you finish your tea of course. ****** “Hm... Morning Brookly-” Mina’s yawn is interrupted halfway as she looks upon you. “Mornin.” you reply. Right now you’re busy trying to minimize the shot of the Annihilator. During that time you had a few... accidents. Mainly is slightly singed and blown back a little, but it is all in the name of progress! “...Whacha doin...” Mina asks, still being stunned by the display. “I’m trying to see if I can improve my Annihilator beam shot. Right now I’m trying to minimize the shots so I don’t damage my house. Even if the power of the shot goes way down, just trying to do this is a challenge in of itself. The first dozen tries it blew up right in my face.” you say to Mina as you make another dark glowing ball on your fingertip. You then send the shot directly at Brodin, watching his barrier completely dissipate the shot. Brodin seems blissfully unaware of the ‘attacks’ hitting his barrier. “...And people make fun of me while I do my kata’s.” Mina replies. “Are you any closer to something at least?” “...Yea... I think I learned how to do a few things, but I’m not sure which hunch to lean towards...” you tell Mina as you throw another small shot at Brodin’s shield.
[2/2] (ANNIHILATOR SHOT LEVEL UP! PICK A BONUS!)- Starfall: A technique where you make dozens of Annihilator shots appear above some location, before sending them straight down to bombard an area. These shots go straight, do not home in, and detonate after a short time. (Aether use: Large)- Charge Shot: A charged version of the Annihilator that is just plain better in every way. Moves fasters, hits harder, bigger explosion. However the Aether consumption is increased. You still have your normal shot, but you also have this one. (Aether use: Medium)- Explosion Radius +: Increased Explosion range for shots!- Speed + Homing Plus: Shots travel faster and have better homing capability.- MeiOh: Taking an idea Brooklyn got from one of his comics, he charges his fists with light in one hand, dark in the other, then smashes them together. The result is fairly powerful explosion with him in the middle. Brooklyn is immune to the explosions, as are his belongings, but nothing else (so be careful with allies). In addition, Brooklyn becomes immune to the explosions of his own Annihilator shots. This technique covers less area than Starfall, but contains much more power. (Aether cost: Large)- Mystery Box: It's a Mystery! It could contain something really good! It could contain something of above! Or it could have nothing! It's a mystery!
>>22762338The box.... THE BOX!
>>22762338Charge Shot. I don't want to risk the box, Starfall doesn't have the tracking awesomeness, and MeiOh means we have to be close to them.
>>22762361tempted to go with box also. however exploding annihilator shots would be fun . love to see the look on the pride daemons face when parring only slightly reduces damage.
>>22762338WHAT'S IN THE BOOOOX
>>22762338out of the named selection, the Meioh is the most appealing only because of the passive immunity of it. so i'll vote for....MYSTERY BOX
Well i like Starfall...'mortar' fire on unsupecting foes! and fuck trenches, fire in the hole! and a "better" AoE
>>22762338Starfall. Come on, it's awesome. MeiOh is also acceptable I suppose.
>>22762338BOX BOX BOX
... darn you to hell for giving us the mystery option. Box
Box it is!Typing the update now.>ningdFT Husbands.Catchpa thinks that Brooklyn's and Mina's future husbands are inside! Is it right!?
We should work on our willpower. One of these days....
“Come on! Tell me what’s inside!” Mina begs you. “Are you sure you want to know? What if it’s nothing?” you ask Mina, holding the small box with illusion magic that you made. “I’ll know if you just open it already!” Mina says, clenching her fists in excitement as she literally trembles with excitement. “Alright... One two... TA DA!” you say, removing the box, showing a small gerbil in your hand. “AAAWWW! KAWAII!” Mina gushes as she reaches down to pick up the small rodent from your hands. A small smirk spreads across your face as she picks it up and brings up to her face. The small hamster suddenly explodes right in her face. “HAHAHAHAHA!” you laugh as you see Mina’s blown back face. You made sure that the explosion wasn’t strong enough to actually hurt her. “...Wa... What the...” Mina asks she looks at her hands, seeing nothing in them. “YOU SHOULD S-HAHA SEE YOUR FACE!” you continue to laugh. (YOU LEARNED ‘KAMIKAZE HOLOGRAM’! You can now make your Soligram’s explode on impact! This is a property of the Annihilator shot, so all details of the explosion are linked to the skill of Annihilator shot. You also found Mina’s Crushed Hope) (Action after pulling this prank?)
relay hoping for some sort of war form or armor we can create out of light and darkness.
>>22762805 give he a hug to try and un-crush that hope
>>22762805I am sorry . if you want i can bring it back minus the explosive part. make same gerbil and have it act all cute
>>22762805Give her a hug and a kiss. Renew that hope!
>>22762805Ok, that's kind of cool. But not very useful.
>>22762850seconding the solidogram gerbil motion.make it up to her by giving Brodin a Kamikaze Hologram of 'a cup of tea'...
>>22762805Try to stop snickering, then give Mina a hug and a kiss to make her feel better. After that have Mina help us pick out a nice Lunch Date outfit and then if we have time go out and get an Aether snack before the date. >>22762902It's actually pretty useful. We use Soligrams as meat shields in combat, making them explode just makes them even nastier.
>>22762907i don't think it will work as he is watching
>>22762902we could also use them as 'Guided Bombs' to take out human targets or to destroy vital infrastructure or mechanisms
>>22762943.... just thought of the Christmas Animals from south park. OMG
>>22762902we had the gerbil set to harmless. exploding holograms are way useful, just think anything could be a landmine. exploding chairs, rocks floor, doors.
>>22763101Innocent looking decoys while we lurk nearby with invisibility. Alternate personas in case we need to interact with various groups at one time...
>>22762902I've changed my mind. Thinking about it as a soligram upgrade it was meh but thinking about it as an annihilator upgrade, it's great. We can create single Soligrams for Light Aether just like annihilator projectiles, they have bigger explosions (free Explosion Radius upgrade!) they effectively travel instantly and are undodgeable because we can create Soligrams anywhere in our line of sight, obsoleting the Speed+Homing upgrade and Starfall (create a load of explosions right on top of them is better creating a load of smaller explosions above them which they can dodge) as well, and it's better and cheaper than Charge Shot. It's like everything except MeiOh in one.
>>22763135bladed weapons that explode inside our enemy.
>>22763200lol an army of flying exploding gerbils
>>22763230Imagine how effective exploding holographic loli's would have been against that last guy?
>>22763303he'd have gone willingly to his doom.
another idea is when we bet powerful enough to throw out boss battles. and when they die they self destruct.
[1/2] “Oh... I’m sorry Mina... I couldn’t resist.” you say wiping a tear from your eye. “That was mean!” Mina says pouting. “Oh I’m sorry...” you say trying to give her a hug, but the only thing Mina does is try and squirm out of the hug. “Here, let me make it up to you.” you say holding out your hand. Small rays of light can be seen gathering in a spot above your hand, before making another small hamster appear in your hand. “...Will this one explode too?” Mina asks as she looks at it skeptically. “No, it won’t this time.” you say as you make the hamster run onto her lap and give her the cutest expression you can muster. “...Apology accepted.” Mina says as she takes the hamster. “Good. Again, sorry but I couldn’t resist.” you say as you get off up the bed and head over to your small collection of hung up dresses. “Now I’m just about to go on a lunch date with Lance, and I was w-” GGGRRRRROOPE You remain in place a few seconds, wishing that Mina wasn’t under your bed so that you could just throw yourself under there and die of embarrassment from how loud your stomach was rumbling.
>>22763371[2/2] “Oh it sounds like you’re certainly ready for a lunch date alright!” Mina replies after. “Oh lord... You moan as you let your head bang against the wall. Feeling your stomach, you can feel that your aether supply is nearly a third full. Practicing like that took some energy out of you, and that story you told the other day was only really enough for a daily snack. To get a full meal, you’d need a much bigger crowd. “Well if you’re really hungry, you could drain Lance of a little bit. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind one bit~.” Mina says. “Mina I’m still... not sure about that...” you tell her. Lance is a tricky subject for you. The male side of you is still somewhat revolted at the prospect of kissing other men. However you can also feel some other part of you in that whenever you think about Lance, his jittery floating feeling can be felt inside of your heart. “Brooklyn, the way I see it is that you were basically given a new lease on life. I’m a girl, been one since birth. Did I have any second thoughts when I slept with you?” Mina asks you. “N-no...” you reply. “Well there you go! Now I’m not saying that you *must* enjoy it. Indeed there are a few Succubi who are completely straight. What I am saying is that you shouldn’t knock it before you try it. After all, you may enjoy it! Isn’t that little widdel Hammy!?” Mina asks the hamster, rubbing her nose with it. You avert your gaze from Mina to that back towards your clothing. Mina’s logic is semi-sound in the logic that one shouldn’t avoid something before they tried it. But... You’re not sure what side of this emotional teeter totter you should be on, or how to reply to Mina’s statement.
>>22763384Just remember that we're emotionally unstable and should think over everything at least trice before doing it.
So do we need to create special clones and if so, how taxing will they be compared to the normal ones
>>22763384I seriously don't want Brooklyn to fall in love with a guy, or to sleep with one.If you take this quest that far, I'm out.
>>22763384"I'm not sure Mina, I'll just see how it goes. Now help me pick out a nice outfit for the date. If we have time we can get a snack first."
>>22763449>I seriously don't want Brooklyn to fall in love with a guy, or to sleep with one.>If you take this quest that far, I'm out.
>>22763384"Mina, I will try to keep an open mind in this regard, however I PROMISE NOTHING!!!"fold arms in a huff"Now get over here and help me choose what to wear..."
>>22763503Your loss, its all part of the growth of the character.
>>22763449I'm not especially keen on it either, but I'm sure OP won't force anything on us. If the majority of the players wants it, it's pretty hard to argue.
>>22763384On one hand it's silly to avoid him over nothing if we really do feel that way about him. On the other hand it's still way too weird and uncomfortable. Definitely not today. Preferably not for a few years. We have all the time in the world to get used to our new existence, we're immortal.
>>22763560Majority rule will be the key thing here yea.
>>22763532>part of the growth of the character.a character can grow in other ways than realizing they now like guys.If you wanta guy turned girl to go do stuff with guys. Go follow Fantasy Quest.
>>22763637>Implying it cant happen hereSeriusly tough, its all because of anons making it that way...
>>22763637Lets not start fling shit over something that may or may not happen in the future, lets cross that bridge when we come to it.
>>22763532I am OK with this but if some are not i prefer not to cross it.
[1/3] Alright... Keep it together. You need to keep in mind that you’re a bit more emotionally volatile that normal. Either way, this is only the second date. That’s hardly enough time to decide what one’s true emotions will be with someone anyways, even without the emotional bullcrap the clan comes with. “Mina, I’ll keep an open mind about such a thing. But I *definately* won’t be doing too fast this dinner date.” you tell Mina. “Oh well yea of course! Hell if he moves too fast then shoot him down! EVERYONE knows you should only try such a thing after your third real date!” Mina says. “However, I promise NOTHING!” you say in a huff with your arms crossed. “Now help me pick out some clothes!” ****** “Ugh... Why did she make me wear the hat too...” you mutter to yourself as you continue to walk towards the barracks. Mina ‘suggested’ (IE: Forced) you to wear your witch like clothing. She insisted it looked good on you, but you’re still somewhat nervous walking around in witch clothing given that you actually ARE a witch. But it’s not like you can do much about it since Mina barricaded the door after she ‘encouraged’ you outside. You head on over to the Crimson Bears barracks, heading up into the main lobby. At lunch time, you’d expect this place to be filled with some mercenaries heading in and out, but at the moment it’s as if the place is a completely ghost building, at least if it weren’t for the secretary behind the desk ahead of you. “...Where is everyone?” you ask the Secretary. “The Langy family is offering a lot of money for this current contract. Many of the mercs here are working overtime in order to take advantage of the increased wages.” The Secretary replies.
>>22764071[2/3] “Um... Is a mercenary named Lance here then? I hope he’s here, because he stopped by my house last night, but I was out.” you reply. “Oh yea sure, I’ll send someone to get him.” the Secretary says. He then glances over his shoulders, pointing to an armoured guard in light metal armour, then using his thumb to point towards the back. “He might be here. Increased wages or no, we try to rotate people out after a few days in order to give everyone a chance to work.” “I see. Well thanks for checking!” you thank the Secretary as go take a seat in the lobby. It takes a few minutes, but eventually Lance does come through the door. “...Hey!” Lance says, his face beaming as he sees you. Lance walks towards you with his arms outstretched. “...Hey.” you reply somewhat sheepishly. You can feel Lance’s arms wrap around you, giving you a hug then a small twirl around in a circle. “Hey! Sorry I haven’t been able to get in touch with you lately! Right now, as you can possibly imagine, work’s been really busy for us since Blizzarios came into town. I’ve been pulling 15 hours shifts for nearly three days.” Lance says. “Oh wow...” you reply, actually amazed.
>>22764085[3/3] “Well it’s really easy work. You just stand around on guard. We highly doubt that anyone would actually attack the castle when a Demon Knight of all things is in there, but you never know.” Lance says. “Anyways, what brings you here Sara?” “Well... You came by last night looking for me, but I was away at the time. I knew it was going to be about getting a new time for a day, so I was wondering whenever you’d like to... possibly head out now? I thought a lunch date would be good as I might have some things later tonight and... Oh god it’s so embarrassing to have a girl ask for the date...” you say pulling the hat over your face. You’re not actually embarrassed, but rather you’re just acting the part of Sara. Lance laughs. “Oh don’t worry! I’m not macho enough to turn down an offer from a lady! Besides, a nice lunch date does sound somewhat nice. Do you have any place planned in particular?” (You can name a restaurant [Red Fox Inn, Adamant Door, The Atlas, other] and one event you’d like to go do with Lance for the date. With that I may turn in for the night, as it feels like I was hit by a truck. I'll begin this when I wake up tomorrow)
>>22764101pick a quiet place for lunch, for the event, is there some kind of mass-entertainment (i.e. Cinema, sporting fixture ect.) as it would allow US to feed while on our date...
>>22764101>Adamant Doorit's a quick launch date anyway, we have stuff to do later.
>>22764101Hmm, the Adamant Door sounds good, but I'm fine with most places.For the after lunch activity I'd suggest him taking us dancing and teaching us a bit, or something along those lines.
>>22764184if I'm remembering correctly the red fox inn fits as a nice quiet place for lunch, and there is at least a sporting arena as that's where we first saw Ada, but if there's a Cinema I'd rather we went there.
>>22764296>I'd suggest him taking us dancing and teaching us a bit, or something along those lines>Performance: Good!we're probably a natural at it.
>>22764101Don't forget we have to teach noble girls later in the afternoon.
things we need to upgrade:Will power - very important seeing as that newly knighted Pride Demon was capable of ordering us to stop moving, and as far as power levels go he was rather low on the totem pole.figure out spell storing - if we can learn to store pre-paid spells(as in the Aether cost of the spell was paid at the time of storing) in objects(e.g. wands, talismans, jewelry) it would allow us to fight longer battles/more battles with less drain on our Aether reserves.boost Light Control and/then Darkness Control- light seams to be our current best combat element especially after learning to make exploding holograms, but we should try to keep these two elements at about the same level because of our UNIQUE Ability ANNIHILATOR BEAM is powered by the weaker of the two
I don't know if this was mentioned but... Once we get the choice to transform someone else after the twin, maybe we could transform orc doc into a Miyian. You know allow him to do field testing on that trap we found.
>>22765578Maybe. I was thinking that our first targets would either be our gaming buddies or Amanda and the Noble Girls. They're all potentially useful. Though it'd be much easier to explain the noble girls as they won't switch gender on us.>>22765434Just as important, or more importantly, learning rituals that can be used by those without Aether. Having something like that for our Coven could be useful.
>>22765626>Just as important, or more importantly, learning rituals that can be used by those without Aethereveryone's got Aether it's just most can't use it>>22765578brilliant, but should wait until we have control of the fort, remember how we had to go to him to get a note verifying who we were? I don't think having him write verifying that he's who he says he is isn't going to fly.
>>22765752Okay, usable by unawakened people who can't use actual magicy magic. None of them can do the magic stuff we can unless we teach them rituals like that.We are going to love the Langy library, and Ada is almost certainly going to give us free useage of it. We'll just curl up in there with all those lovely books.
>>22765626> I was thinking that our first targets would either be our gaming buddies or Amanda and the Noble Girls.of our Gaming buddies Roger or Tristen should be first, but I think the twins should be first.
>>22766010I meant after the Twins, sorry. Yeah, twins come first. Honestly it won't be that hard to convince them, they said that they hated feeling powerless, we tell them that we have a way so that they can be stronger, make it so they never have to feel powerless again and they'll leap at the chance. I was thinking Brock. He is good at combat and metaphysical stuff, he could make one hell of a Okarian or Belkarian, or something else entirely.Tristen is good at numbers and people, if we don't make Amanda an Ayarian he'd work for that position pretty well, or he could make a good Laminian.Not sure what position to give Leo or Roger though.Pretty much any of the group could make a good Miyan or Okarian due to their scholarly stuff.
>>22766096>Rogerpolitical science is still science as such would get a bonus from Miyan traits, and his Min-Max tendencies is the sort of approach one should take with Miyan super science.
>>22766351>, and his Min-Max tendencies is the sort of approach one should take with Miyan super science."Brooklyn, I created a weapon that can help us defeat the pride demons permanently?""Great, what's the drawback?""Well, it kinda kills everybody.""Everybody?""Everybody.""..."
>>22766377>"Brooklyn, I created a weapon that can help us defeat the pride demons permanently?">"Great, what's the drawback?">"Well, it kinda turns everybody who isn't already a succubus into Aide succubi.">"Everybody?">"Everybody.">"That's some drawback, huh?">"Yup.">"...">"...">Just as planned.
>>22763532You know what is a great character growth?Brooklyn accepting her body and realizing that she isn't romantically and sexually attracted to men. Basically be a lesbian succubus. Now THAT is a novelty!
>>22766647>That isn't my fetish
>>22766647between the new hormones,Okarian over emotional weak point, and the euphoric high produced by consuming Aether, one can argue taht we have no idea what we prefer; but if you stop and look at the majority of our choices you'll see they are female.
>>22766731for in this scenario Lance is the Forbidden Love.at least to those who dream as such...
>>22766647I think it'd make sense for Brooklyn to be attracted to Lance, he's a nice guy, he's a hunk, and we've shown some level of attraction to him. I'm not saying we should immediately jump him, but we shouldn't toss the idea out just because we used to be a man, we're a fucking succubutt, we shouldn't hide from that.Lesbian succubus isn't a novelty, this is /tg/, we love our lesbians, perhaps too much.>>22766731Most of the romantic options we have are female. I mean there's our gaming buddies, but that'd be a bit awkward, and there's Brodin, but he's a drunk and we can't eat his Aether anyways. Besides, Mina has no compunctions against us sleeping with other people of either gender.
>>22764101the adamant door seems good.have another drawing too, the thing in the top right corner, is supposed to be a scythe and a tail spelling SLQ, I'm pointing it out because I was half asleep when doing it and now it doesn't look like it did when I draw it.
>>22766801maybe we could turn lance into a Succubutt
>>22766647I approve of this. If only because I'm quite tired of being informed that he makes our heart go crazy when we initially wanted him as a contact, nothing more.
>>22768460IT IS DECIDED. WE SEDUCE LANCE AND SUCK OUT HIS DICK.
>>22768576What do you mean, "we", kemosabe?
>>22768576Yeah no. Lance seems to touch off our stupid emotional issues. I'd prefer to suppress our feelings for him and just have him as a friend and use him for his connections.
>>22766647>>22768511>>22768694I agree. Frankly if I hear about how attractive we find Lance when the players are at best dividded one more time I'm going to advocate immediatly killing him. No other character has this issue, so killing him would hopefully end it.
>>22768576or we get him control of the Bear Mercs and get control of are own band of mercs
Alright, awake now. Gonna see if I can post an update after some food.>>22767711Is that supposed to be Ada that Mina is about to hug?Neat logo tho
>>22768873I second this motion. We consider him a rather nice guy but we are not attracted to him AT ALL, Okeran "emotional volatility" or not.
>>22769383Hey, no need to kill him. Just break it off.And by that I mean emasculate him into succubiness
>>22768920Succubutt merc commanders just saying
>>22769472Its conditional upon the "players do not, and have never collectively found him attractive, but Brooklyn likes him/has mixed feelings anyway." Any character that can cause us to lose control of our character in such a fashion NEEDS TO DIE.
>>22769357yes it is, and thank you
>>22769525I can safely say that no matter what happens with Lance that your emotions will rage out of control. What Brooklyn is feeling right now are just emotional conflicts of interest, and I've told you guys before how you can vote to deal with them so long as the majority agrees.Besides, the only thing I can say that'd drive your emotions off the deep end is if (no saying in stone, but an example and nothing more) that we got into a relationship with Lance, then he ended up being the King of Despair and murdered Mina in front of our eyes while taunting him? Brooklyn would probably have a very extreme reaction, same for most other beings on the planet.
>>22769642*emotions WILL NOT rage out of control.Christ I hate missing words like that.
>>22768873>>22769383>>22769525>people actually getting their priorities straightIt's nice when it does happen.
>>22769525I agree. If this goes anything like our first date, Lance dies. Frankly, I'm still less than sold on this whole "emotional volatility" thing. If Sandact feels the need to give us a weakness against socail magic for balance purposes that is one thing. But to the maxium extent possible we should control not only what our character does, but how she thinks, especially since the restriction was not initially told to us. Lance is by far the most egregious case of this not happening, so I frankly would like him to either stop causing these issues or to die.
>>22769642They kinda already did on the first date. We went there with the intent to use him and ended up half falling in love with the guy and kissing him with precisely zero player input. If that isn't emotions raging out of control I don't know what is.
>>22769692You can still control Brooklyn's feelings involving things. Emotions often come up unexpectedly, but when they do come up you're free to correct Brooklyn. Given time, he will adapt and then begin to automatically choose how other voted Brooklyn should feel in the given situation and circumstances. Think back to when we drained the first bandits. Brooklyn's initial reaction to this was shock. If you want, you could say such a thing is normal, or tell him that such a thing is normal for a human and not make such a big deal for it.>>22769741Yea you do make a point here. I'll try to be careful from now on.
>>22769691>>22769692wow, you people are pretty extreme. sure, I don't think we should fall in love with him but killing him? a bit too much I think.I say that like it was the initial idea we use him, I sure we can resist the raging emotion if we go at the date with the intent to.
>>22769821ya I agree with you killing him would be pretty fucked up
>>22769809Can I say that Brooklyn has learned to sufficiently deaden his emotions such that he brings himself back to precisely where he was before his transformation in terms of emotional volatility? Because that's what I want to say.>>22769809Yeah, I think that most of the complaints about dealing with our emotional conflict of interest with Lance is that we never wanted that to exist to begin with. We don't want to deal with it, we want to not have to deal with it. Also, you got Lance's hopes up, which means that becoming "just friends" is going to be a complete pain in the ass.
>>22769821I should point out a few things:1. Killing him is conditional on those raging emotions you mentioned.2. We weren't able to resist last time.
In fact, I clearly remember that the first time this was discussed, the majority of players went "fuck Lance, acquire bitches" and wanted the emotional instability to be dropped. Sandact assured us it wouldn't be used in the EXACT WAY HE IS USING IT NOW.
See, I like things the way they are, and I am entirely against the character turning straight(gay?).What should happen is, third date, she gets caught up in her emotions and has sex and UNINTENTIONALLY (that isn't sarcasm, but emphasis) sucks him dry.The harrowing experience forever associates emotional feelings for guys with feeling like a monster, so Brooklyn swears off men.But I doubt anyone else would agree with that, because the anti-gay-Brooklyn people don't want the sex in the first place and the anti-anti-gay-Brooklyn people don't want the sex to be a bad thing for Brooklyn.So it's probably definitely not going to happen.
>>22769942brooklyn is not really male anymore so really the only sex we have had so far was gay sex
>>22769942People like you ruin quests.
>>22769894Agreed. If Lance causes us to be remotely attracted to us ever again despite the fact that:1. The players never expressed any interest in him.2. As you said, when it came up we decided we didn't like him or guys in general.3. We told our student, our D&D buddies and pretty much everyone else that WE ARE NOT INTO GUYS.then he needs to die.
>>22769965Brooklyn's gender is male.Sex is female.He still thinks of himself as a guy internally, thus, he is one. How long that lasts is up for grabs...>>22769994It's a perfectly reasonable event to happen. It'd be a horrible experience, but it would be perfectly in-character to actually happen. Going straight character-wise, I'd be surprised if it didn't.
>>22770001It's because Sandact clearly wants Brooklyn to gargle all the cocks eventually.
>>22770027Considering the number of times we have said we don't like guys both IC and OOC it is completely out of character. Plus, I don't actually hear anyone expressing interest in bedding him. Only discussion I can see is whether or not to say "fuck this shit" and immediately kill him of Sandac tries to insist that Brooklyn is in any way attracted to Lance.
[1/2]“The Adamant Door fine with you? It does have some good things to eat.” you say to Lance. The other thing you’re hoping for is that since that place is always so lively, you’d be able to get some more emotional aether energy from such a place.“Sure! I love their pork, so why not!” Lance says. “Just gimme a few minutes to go put on some civvie clothes and I’ll be right back out, alright Sara?”You can feel Lance making the hug between you two a bit tighter. “O-Ok... I’ll wait here.” you shyly reply.****** The Adamant door is lively as per usual, full of people who are just off their lunch time, shedding their facade of civility and becoming more akin to a bunch of rowdy animals while inside of this place. Of course you don’t mind it a single bit. The collection of strong emotions here is helping to slowly refill your aether reserves. The only problem is that the flavors are more akin to that of a roller coaster. There are so many flavors whirling through the air that eating something actual physical would probably make it taste like cardboard in comparison. “Are you... Sure you don’t want anything?” Lance asks while eating his pork. “Y-yea I’m fine.” you reply as you nurse your mug of water. “You know... They actually have some good live music this time around.” Lance says as he looks over to the small band performing on the stage. “Care for a dance milady?” “Eh? But I don’t know how to dance!” you protest. “Either do I! It’ll be fun, so come on!” Lance says taking your hand and pulling you out to the dance floor.
>>22770064[2/2] “W-wait!” you protest as you’re hauled out to the dance floor. The next few minutes compose of what both you and Lance constitute as dance, in a very loose term of the work. Falls are taken by each, feet are tripped over, laughs are had. You’re actually having a lot of fun, in more of a ‘two idiots try to dance but are horrible at it’ kinda way. “Alright... Then how about we do this!” Lance says taking a step back so he can prepare to spin you around. But as he does, his back hits a man who was sitting at the counter. “Hey!” The man says. “Oh, uh, sorry about that.” Lance replies as his attention returns to you. “You spilled my damn drink!” says the the drunk man. As he turns around, you can see that some of his glass is indeed spilled, but barely a mouthful at best. The large man also reeks of booze. Lance sighs, turning around to meet the man. “Look, I’m sorry alright.” “I don’t think you understand the issue I’m trying to address!” the man says, getting up out of his chair. With the size of his body, he appears to be more like a gorilla than an actual man. Just as smelly as a wild animal to boot. You look around, seeing that already some curious onlookers are about to head over to your area to see what happens next. You yourself wonder what you should do as well.
>>22769821>wow, you people are pretty extremeYou might even say we're emotionally volatile.
Or perhaps it's just railroading.You guys act like it's something unusual in a quest.SD runs the quest, we play in it.Sometimes we can affect things. Sometimes we can't.
>>22770122In which case we use our choice to kill the guy we don't like.>>22770068Calm down [suggestion]
>>22770068See if we can slip a soligram into the crowd to start a bar fight. It should be good for feeding at least.
>>22770068try to gtfo of there with you and lance
>>22770150you don't like don't act like you speak for everyone
>>22770151Soligrams will vanish after a single successful hit. You sure about this?
>>22770177no just buy him a new drink.
>>22770162I'm not entirely sure what you are saying. But I am expressing my opinion, which seems to be in the majority. Which is "If we can't help but be attracted to him, then we kill him."
Let's kill Lance. Most of us don't care about him, and every time he's around Brook he's a liability.>>22770186>>22770162>>22770154Samefag.
>>22770212I did two of those but the drink one was not me and we can't just go around offing people that is called being a dumb fuck
>>22770212You want to kill him in the middle of a crowded bar with loads of witnesses and everyone suggesting a reasonable way to escape is a samefag? Ok.
>killing Lancewhat happened to keeping our morality?
>>22770242No, we want to kill him outside, in a dark alley.
>>22770242No, we want to politely ask the angry drunk to please leave our date alone while giving a secret suggestion to get angrier try to kill Lance.
>>22770212...why, just why does everyone want to -kill- the guy? let's just stop going out with him! it's easier, won't make have raging emotion because we just killed a guy because we didn't want to -go out- with because of unstable emotions! I'm also starting to suspect that the "kill lance" team is a single troll trying to mess with the quest. but seriously you want to kill him? sure if you can find a remotely good reason, other than EMOTIONS, to do so.
>>22770212I don't think we should kill him, even if we do it sneaking there is still the problem of the bear's bureaucracy, the receptionist would have noted down that he left with us.
>>22770242I agree with you that killing him in the middle of a crowded bar is not a good idea. I'm extremely tempted to kill the guy, but if we are to do that we should use suggestion to turn the crowd against him.
>>22770294>...why, just why does everyone want to -kill- the guy? let's just stop going out with him!Sandact isn't fucking letting us!
>>22770150Seconding Suggesting the drunk calms down.
>>22770278Clearly murder is a better solution than to breaking off the relationship in order to maintain our male, non-murdering personality as it was before becoming a succubus.
>>22770177Good point. Let's use hidden suggestion to get the drunk to go after some random guy in the crowd."There's no need for any of this. Here, let me buy you another drink (it was that guy over there. You always hated that guy)"
>>22770321I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not.
>>22770294I'm the one who originally suggested it. Please not the conditional nature of my desire to kill him. It mostly revolves around our "emotional volatility" that Sandac forced upon us. 90% of that bullshit has been in regards to Lance, so if it continues I want him to die so we never have to deal with it ever again.
>>22770321Do you have any solution that will remove this rancid subplot that only a few fags keep supporting? Because it sure as fuck feels like we're being railroaded into this at every opportunity despite lots of people hating it.Fuck, why is this even discussed. It won't happen and we'll keep doing this dating shit until Brooklyn happily accepts teh cock, because that's what the transformation fetishists in the threads want.And the OP is one of them.
>>22770306did we at any time say to lance "I don't want to go out with you?" no, if we don't say it out loud then he'll keep thinking we like him therefor he'll keep asking us out causing this discussion to happen over and over again
>>22770306"Hey, Lance came by while you were gone saying he was free for a bit."[ ] "Okay, I'll go have lunch with him."[ ] "I should probably try to let him down softly, I'm not so into him."[ ] "I'm gonna see if I can get him to like me more so that I can learn if there's any useful information about his mercenary group, which is one of the biggest in a city known for its mercenaries. That seems like it would be vital information to have for someone planning a coup d'etat."Which choice did the players make?
>>22770278If we kill him it should be because our damned Okerain "emotional volatility" keeps getting the better of us, and we lash out, defying and mastering our volatile emotions. It basically describes what we want to do OOC, and while it kinda sucks for Lance, it is a nice bit of character growth.
>>22770348A bit of a dead horse, but I said in the last thread that such a thing was always part of the clan. Hell, I'm glad Belkarian didn't get voted in. As their con and me not mentioning it by accident in the first game? Just thinking about the backlash of that gives me nightmares.Anywho, read up on the choices and where THQ IP's went, so onto the next part.
>>22770372all, I believe
>>22770348And that still is a good reason to kill him, we are basically a girl on hormones, and guess what!Most of then don't go off and commit murder, every time they get a little emotional.
>emotionally volatileIT'S AS IF BROOKLYN IS IN FACT SCHIZOPHRENIC NO BROOKLYN DON'T LISTEN TO THE VOICES IN YOUR HEADwait fuck keep listening to this voi-dammit
>>22770212>If we're still railroaded into loving him again it seems the only way out is going completely out of character and murdering him in cold blood>You have a fun time on your second date but don't get any lovey feelings>fuck it lets kill him anyway lol #YOLODude no.
Haha, I went of to sleep after Sandact left, come back and see people are taking a stand against this issue.I always wanted for Brooklyn to stop being so indecisive and to GROW A BACKBONE.Have him take a stand against people that keep forcing him to do things he doesn't want (Mina).
>>22770365Yea, if you don't want it, then just tell him next time that things aren't really working out and it's best to part ways. That'll be it really.
>>22770392Yeah, and you decided that compromise wasn't possible. Expect the backlash to reappear every time you raise the issue until you stop raising it. Plus, you justification for that drawback was "The character in my previous campaign CHOSE to act emotionally volatile." Well guess what, we didn't fucking choose to do that, and we don't want to do that. Every time you force us to do that we will get pissed.
>>22770387>suddenly getting angry and murdering somebody>mastering our volatile emotionsPretty sure that's called succumbing to our volatile emotions.
>>22770442>Mina>Forcing him to do things he doesn't wantHuh?Did I miss a thread or something? I don't remember Mina ever coercing us about anything at all. Except taking our innocence, and there wasn't really any protestation over that anyways.
>>22770473She keeps telling Brooklyn to 'try the cock' he may find he actually likes it. Granted, she isn't pushy about it.
>>22770449That sure is a different tune than before.But fine. Let's please drop this subplot.Unless there's a huge majority of you guys out there who are desperate to see Brooklyn suck dick.I know I'm not
>>22770458But look at it from In character perspective.Brooklyn decides he is going to give this whole emotional volatility a middle finger, kills the guy. Thinks he won the emotional battle, then realizes giving into the rage is exactly what he was fighthing against.
>>22770451>WeTo be honest it doesn't mind me.
>>22770449yes when we have a chance, Give him 'lets just be friends' line.
>>22770539"I'm sorry. My experience with you have undeniably caused me to realize I'm entirely lesbian."We'll only be killing his manhood.
>>22770505I want to get the combat lesson that started all this shit first so that at least something good came out of it.
>>22770558>to realize that I'm entirely straight. For girls. Sorry I didn't tell you."*whips out illusionary dick*"I'm a guy."
>>22770526I'd much prefer it being we decided in a coldly logical fashion that he was a trigger for much of it and decided to remove that trigger>>22770527When I said we I was referring to the various people both last time and this time who loathe it and want it gone, who seem to consitute a majority. If we want to play an emotionally volatile character that is fine with me. If it is because we have decided the Brooklyn is an emotionally volatile person as an individual rather than something that OP forced upon us and refuses to even discuss meaningfully.
>>22770527I'm with you here I don't care about all this. I can't help but think that's killing a man who as done nothing go actually hurt us is silly..,
To be honest, I really don't give a shit at this point. I'm tired of people whining about it like a six-year-old girl who can't have a pony.I am entirely neutral on the subject of Brooklyn wanting Lance's dick inside her, but the over-reactive bitching is making me lean towards suggesting that she completely ignore the drunk guy and reach into Lance's pants right now out of sheer passion for cock.Because I am not Brooklyn. Even if I would never, ever go for the dick, it doesn't gross me out that someone else might.Fucking self-insert idiots who don't know how to play a role. Can we get back to the story, now?
>>22770630I'm probably going to be shooting myself in the foot here by saying this, but if I think I don't address this than things are going to continue to spiral out of control. Normally I prefer to remain out of such conversations, as last time I revealed inner workings like this it backfired on me.The emotional drawback of Okarians is really only supposed to come into play when things are actively rolled against Brooklyn via a social or mental attack. Feeling small gut action emotions about things is something I would've done, regardless of the clan chosen. Yes, you still would've felt love pangs for Mina after sleeping with her, but unless Brooklyn was a player then quite frankly the majority of people on the planet would feel such a way.Did I overstep my boundaries on the first date in regards to free will? Looking back, probably yes. The only I can do is attempt to make sure I won't repeat past mistakes.In order for Brooklyn to actually lose control of his emotions, it has to be something off the deep end. Something that'd most likely make *anyone* IRL feel enraged or sad upon hearing it. Such as seeing a loved one murdered in front of you while being taunted. I'd probably ask for a Willpower roll, and even if you failed it, I'd still allow you guys to vote on what should happen next.So if I bring up a subtle emotion in one of my posts, you're all free to mention whenever Brooklyn should squash it or not.As for discussing the flaw meaningfully, we did a few threads back. I posted the original notes I made for the clans and how it was an oversight that I didn't mention the Okarian and Belkarian faults.Now, I shall return to writing. Now watch this blow up in my face knowing my own luck.
>>22770630Agreed. Saying "whoops sorry about that, guess you just have to deal with it" isn't a meaningfull reponse no matter how nicely he phrased it. Especially since there were multiple attemps to meet him halfway that he refuses to even acknowledge.>>22770639You do realize that most of use want to kill him because he is the personification of this whole issue?
Cock: the most divisive thing known to /tg/.
>>22770558>>22770610"I used to be a man. In retrospect, I probably should have mentioned that sooner"
>>22770733You can just fuck right off.
>>22770739That is why I suggested for Brooklyn to declare himself/herself a lesbian. So in the future you would know to automatically quash those kind of emotions for guys.>>22760558>feeling your heart nearly skipping a beat from happiness.like that.
>>22770739see >>22770742To elaborate the previously suggested compromises were:1. Increase our physical weakness2. Drop the emotional aspect and keep the weakness to social or mental attacks.Considering what you just said, I think you should rename the weakness as: Lowered Mental defenses, and never mention the phrase "emotional volatility" ever again. Not much would change and the butthurt would be gone.
>>22770833We've already done that IC and OOC multiple times.
>>22770833Yea you can vote to shuffle those feelings under a rug or supress them whenever they come up. That is *exactly* what I mean by voting on how Brooklyn should be controlling his emotions.>>22770853I'm tempted, but lowered mental defenses is too broad. You can resist mental attacks fine (AKA: Blizzarios's "bow before me" and "stand still" you were not weak to). It's more akin to any emotional attacks inspiring emotions. Such as a Pride Demon making an emotion of pure awe being washed over a crowd.
>>22770899Weakness to emotional magic then?
>>22770899so instead of 'lowered mental defenses' it's 'weak against emotional attacks'
>>22770926Yea basically, weakness to emotional based attacks. I think I'll most likely implement this when I get a chance, hopefully it'd quell debates like these from happening again.
>in b4 female pride demon assaulting and is able to prey especially powerfully on use for we have "never known the touch of man"
>>22770956So instead of most Okerians suppressing their emotions in order to maintain control it is to strengthen themselves against social magic, and our queen thinks you should just be normal then? Works for me.
“Look sir, we’re sorry! Can’t we just buy you a drink and call it even? (That guy next to you is stealing your drink, and you always hated him anyways.)” you suggest to the man. “Hey... Wait a second...” the large man says, turning around to the man next to him. “You’re the one who keeps taking my beer away from me?” “...Eh?” The Swooping Hawks man looks on at confusion at the large man. It is then the large man decks the Swooping Hawk member, and the cheering on for a fight suddenly erupts. The music doesn’t stop, rather it becomes more of an upbeat tune more fitting for a bar brawl. “...Let’s... forget about the dancing for a moment then...” Lance says. “Yea... Good idea.” you reply as you head back to your table with him. “For Celestia’s sake, you can’t even have a good time with a friend without some asshole trying to ruin your time.” Lance grumbles as he goes back to eating his pork. “Yea... Emotions are rather high here...” you comment, now feeding off the large amounts of anger coming from behind you. You’re getting a better meal than you would’ve originally thought. “Just thinking about what could’ve happened to someone like you if they got caught up in that... Ugh.” Lance looks disgusted as the thoughts enter his mind. “Sara, do you know any degree of self-defense?” “Eh? Um... Not as much as I’d like.” you reply. “Well knowing the basics of how not to get yourself stand wide open are easy enough to understand at least.” Lance says. “I could give you a few pointers in a subject before lunch is over at least.” (Can now pick choices to raise a skill up! Empathy to basic, Axe to Base, Willpower to Average, Hand-to-Hand/Swords/Spears/Shields to basic)
>>22770899General instruction. Brooklyn is not attracted to guys, ever.
>>22770991Yea exactly, that works fine.Also one may ask "WTF do we need empathy for when Aura sight lets us see emotions?" Empathy can let you predict how people will act, or what their true emotions will be if they are hiding or masking their auras.
>>22771006what does empathy do?
>>22771006Willpower to Average
>>22771029That sounds like something that most humans should have at least basic in. Unless it is somehow above what a human can do? Also, we already have Axe as basic, shouldn't it be axe to average?
>>22771006>Willpower to Average,we have been putting this off.
>>22771006>For Celestia’s sakeAngel-worshipper? You'd think he'd be more careful with that given how extremely illegal it is.>Axe to BaseIsn't axe already basic?Anyway, I vote for willpower. I don't know what willpower and empathy are even doing in a Merc's self-defence tips but whatever.
>>22771073...Did we? I actually forgot. Pretty sure it was basic. I can do a thread crawl after this to see if we leveled up axes to basic at any time and I just forgot to add it in.
wait a second didn't you make the sex vampire cyoa like seven years ago
>>22771114OH! Now I see!Yea, axes should be to Average, not basic. Spelling error.
>>22771114It says we are already at basic right on the character sheet.
>>22771124...I was waiting for this.I did, but looking back on it makes me almost cry for how bad it actually was. I was just ripping off Reikan's Vampire CYOA, but since CYOA's were dying left and right, I needed a gimmick.I liked the characters in that, but... god looking back on makes my eyes bleed. I want to try a different approach from my original CYOA's.
>>22771166GahahaYour writing's definitely improved a ton, but it wasn't THAT bad even back then. Nice to see you still doing stuff.
>>22771124>>22771166>>22771199I have no idea what this is about but now I half expect a vampire to pop around
>>22771199I consider the second Sex Vampire CYOA to be VASTLY better than the first. I like Oksana and the original group, but I feel as if I got the personalities for Aria and her Gemelli twin just right. My favorite part has to be when they find out they're stuck together, and the overall feeling of akwardness and disbelief that exists between them.>>22771233A CYOA is an old quest I did on another board way the hell back.
>>22770593Can't we ask Mina or Purple? At least it wouldn't involve all this shitstorm.>>22771006I'd be saying empathy, shield or sword to basic...having more skill that we can train with is usually better imho
So okay, let Lance down gently/ lets be friends then move on to the noble girls. Oh and people, I see a lot of suggestions for turning people into Succubi but very few ideas on how to gather the necessary energy.
[1/2] Over the course of the meal, Lance gives you a basic overview of how being in battle is not just physical, but it is also a very large part of a mental battle too. You need to be resolute in battle, no room for such things as hesitation. Secondly the affair that going into war and such is a nasty things. Seeing friends die and suffer, civilians crying about how their loved ones are gone. It is an extremely stressful affair, so one needs to keep their mind strong and in shape just as much, if not moreso, than one’s body. After all, if one has the strength to fight but not the will, then it is the same as having no strength yourself. This little grisy pep talk does scare you a little bit, but it does let you reflect upon the battles you’ve had before, and you feel as if you’ve become more confident for any long term or short term battle you may come across in the future. (WILLPOWER TO AVERAGE!) “...Oh wow is it already this late?” Lance asks as he looks at the grandfather clock in the restaurant. “Crap, I need to get back to the barracks.” “Thanks for taking the time out Lance.” you say thanking him. “Na, no worries. A Lunch date worked out rather well for the both of us. I had a great time! ...Aside from one minor issue...” Lance mutters. You reach into your coin pouch, preparing to take out a few coins to pay for Lance’s meal.
>>22771382[2/2] “Ah ha! Don’t you dare! The boys back at the racks would never let me down if I made a girl I went out on a date with pay for the meal. Especially if she ate nothing.” Lance says putting a gold coin on the table. “I-I’m sorry. I just wasn’t that hungry...” you lie. You were actually quite hungry, but thanks to that little bar fight and all the emotions in here, it feels as if you’ve had a large meal. You’re back to 2/3rds fill, if not a little over that. “No worries! Anyways I hate to run like this, but I’ve got to get back. Later Sara!” Lance gives you a small hug as he throws on his jacket, rushing out the door. Well... That ends that little eventful date. Checking the time, you notice that its nearly 1:30 PM. The day is still young for whatever you may want to end up doing.
>>22771388Let see what we need to do. set up a meeting with noble girls and go clean up that demon? The later would serve as an easy way to ask the queen about something we can teach them and ask them if they'd be interested in a D&D campaign
>>22771388Go look for the noble girls. Make some progress with them. ((priority: miss religious))
>>22771388Just a question but do we know when the twins come back from trading?For what we should do, well we kinda need medical supplies, have out wings, tail and horns grown at all, if we can fly we could get through building very fast looking for more meds, hey, we might even find some tea.
>>22771463Just ask brodin to go clean up the demon, we need to set up a meeting with the noble girls. Also, may want to check on Ada, see how far did she get with Amanda.
>>22771472didn't ada said she'd take care of that?
>>22771483Twins will be gone for about two weeks, give or take a little more. In all likihood, I may be doing timeskips later on.
>>22771562Ada offered to take care of Amanda, not the other girls. If you can get in contact with Ada, you can then possibly arrange a meeting between all of you.
>>22771574then taking care of them might be a good idea
>>22771574>arrange a meeting between all of you.this seems great. We should go to the palace(?), with pretense on seeing our friends.It's not like there is a danger of 'getting caught' anymore.
>>22771562Ada would take care of miss "I'll stab you in the back at the first chance" not miss religious.
>>22771749We just need to change miss religious devotion from angels to us... that will probably be the hardest part.
>>22771783Not really, we just need to convince her that succubi are not the evil demons, and that becoming one will help her get rid of the evil demons.
>>22771388>nearly 1:30 PMI suggest we set up the lesson with the noble girls for 4ish if we can, so that we can use the free time to work on our light skills.>>22771783this i agree with, the others are definitely less of a problem, of the girls only the power hungry one could cause as much trouble.
>>22771635Thing is Brooklyn as a Scholar, but still a peasant. Unless he has business in the castle, he ain't getting in.Amanda can get in, as she's a noble.This isn't railroading, as if you want to suggest sneaking into the castle via some other means, that's fine too.But so I'm reading this right do you want Brooklyn to head over to the bath house to see if she can meet Amanda? It seems to be the majority vote here for the moment.
>>22771913Ada's cover is still intact right? if so there's another way into the castle.but yes for now setting up the meeting via Amanda is the way to go for now.
>>22772118Yea, you could also ask for Ada's assistance. That's also another way. Thanks for reminding me!
You decide that its probably about time that you start setting up the meeting with the noble girls once more. They’re fairly nice girls, and you haven’t fully finished your... education with them yet. You head on over to the bathhouse area, heading up the steps and peering around a column in the front of the building towards the inside. You can only hope your large witch hat doesn’t make you stand out too much. As you look around the corner, you can see Amanda once again at the front desk of the bath house, currently doing her best to greet a rather large line of customers. You wonder how or if you should try to get in contact with the rest of the girls via Amanda. Going to the sisters in the castle could certainly work as well, but you decided to stop to see if Amanda was here on the way as she is by far the easiest to contact. “...What are you doing lady?” a small kid asks, nearly making you jump as you peer around the corner. As you look down at the kid, you can notice a few other people are looking at you and your suspicious behavior as well.
>>22772204tell them we're just looking for a friend.
>>22772204Just looking for someone. Don't worry your little head about it.
>>22772204"I'm trying to see if one of my friend is her"
>>22772204how come stopping by the bathhouse is suspicious behavior?/why are we behaving in a suspicious manner about a public place, it not like we need to be stealthy right now,right?
>>22772152Yea, >>22771635 here. I thought getting Ada to help us get in, is given. If we couldn't make it on our own.
>>22772377It's probably the hat.
>>22772377The hat, and peering around a column to look inside of the enterance.
>>22772204I wanted to see a friend but it seems she's busy.[Suggestion] Go tell the woman at the desk that her teacher will hold a lesson for her and her friends at usual place for 4.[/suggestion]
“J-just looking for someone! Don’t worry your pretty little head over it!” you say giving the child a small pat on the head before head off. You think that you’d probably have better luck at the castle. Ada or Erica in the castle should be enough to let you gain entrance. All you need from them is just a good word from them and you’re in. You make you way towards the Langy castle in all of it’s imposing might. Normally you’d mentally count the royal guards outside, but today there seems to be far too many, especially in addition to the mercenaries. The two royal guards lower their weapons to bar your way as you approach them. “I’m sorry, but only those with official business or permission from the Langy family may enter the castle.” the Royal Guards say. You wonder who you should be asking to come out. Ada or Erica... Or whenever or not you should seek another way in.
>>22772668Don't we look like Brooklyn now? (or still Sara?).we can say we have official business with Erica (she pays our teaching bills, right?) But go meet Ada.
>>22772668Lets ask for Ada, we can discuss the disposal and the "Training" of amanda while getting access to the castle.
>>22772668Suggestion: "I have permission from the Langy family"
>>22772730We're still Sara.
Alright kids, I've been at this for a little while now, so I'm going to take a small break. I'll try to post one last update before I hit the sack tonight.
>>22772737How about we don't ask for "Ada", but instead whatever her cover name was.I don't remember what the name she took was, but asking for any other name would only lead to trouble.I'm assuming Brooklyn has better memory than I do.
>>22772905That's the one, thanks. Kept thinking "Meredith", even though I knew it was wrong.
I was just going over character sheets, and I just wanted to make sure of something.The skill we're raising to Supernova+++ is Tea, right?From Miyu's sheet, I assume you can only have one skill at triple-plus, and I can't think of any other skill being important enough to get that high...
>>22773031>I assume you can only have one skill at triple-plus,why do you think that? We were never told that there are skill caps.
>>22773031Tea's going beyond Supernova+++. Way beyond.
>>22773145I can just picture us beating people and winning wars with the power of Earl Gray.
>>22773213>>22773145>>22773031this is what you guys reminded me of>replace the coffee with tea and you get the idea
>>22773213Become ruler of earth? Leave that to Ada we're going on a mystical quest to find and make the best tea in the multiverse.
>>22772668I think we should ask for Ada (Marina).Since both of us have the hidden message ability, is it possible to have a conversation in subtext so we can talk openly while everyone else just hears us discussing the weather etc. ?
I just want to say that I want to take care of miss ambitious by ourselves. If only because we need the practice given that we are supposed to rule a planet. I vote to use suggestion to get her to confide in us.
>>22772668since suggestion is currently a single target ability, could we use it twice? as in;To Guard 1 "Yes, I have a written... Oh No! I must have left it in the bath house... Could you let me in please? I have an important meeting with Mary-Anne (I have permission to enter, you don't need to check)To Guard 2 "I promise i won't do it again (The other Guard knows what he is doing, No need to question his actions)
>>22773294Nah, lets be ruler. Anyway, lets just leave for now and find a way to arrange a private meeting with miss ambitious. Frankly, I do not want her help with the nobles, because I want them to be primarily loyal to us, not her.
>>22774263Being the ruler is a lot of work, leave it to someone who likes politics. Reading books and making tea is more important than ruling is.
>>22776089being a ruler is about knowing how to delegate
>>22776288>>22776089Maybe, but I think delegating the indoctrination of our recruits to someone who is by their own admission a power hungry sneak is a bad idea. I want them to be more loyal to us than to her.
>>22776288>being a ruler is about knowing how to delegateQFTWe still have the long goal of getting "Empress" title.
>>22776358Then be there every time she trains her.That way it seems you are the higher ranked of the two and she is only training her on your behalf.
>>22776377Agreed, and this isn't the time to delegate this task. Ada is already the most independent minded of our allies and her seizing control of the town provides her with a serious power base. Our own power comes mostly from the fact that the demon queen chose us, which Ada isn't entirly aware of, and the fact that Mina and to a lesser extend Brodin support us. Giving Ada a chance to build up her own faction of Succubi before she has acknowledged her subordinate position is a bad idea.
>>22776569This is where our connection with Lance can be useful. If we work to get him in charge of his mercenary outfit, then see if we can get either Lance, ourselves or another pawn into a position as the leader of the Mercenary Guild (if there is no Guild, then we make one by subverting the leaders of the other Outfits as well). Then, while Ada may have the merchents and nobles in her pocket, We will have the Military muscle which, push comes to shove, can be used to police the town and ensure that our authority is not undermined.
>>22776481But how do we enforce our superior position when Ada doesn't really see it that way?
>>22776709If it really comes down to it?I say we break her.But ONLY in the worst case scenario.
Why do we want to be superior and rule? This notion is as little Brooklyn Browning as it is possible to get AND as little ocarian it is possible to get. As i see it we should try to settle down with books to acquire knowledge and new magics. And drink tea. We do have a responsibility to try to restore the succubi race, but our abilities are are better spent going through ruins and making sure the people we want to turn are the right people. Being a ruler comes with far to much work and responsibility. I say let Ada run the city
>>22776858...You do realize we hatched a master plan to break all of the queens to our heel in the first thread right? Plus, we have consistently asked about precisely what being an empress would mean and how to become one.>>22776826No, how to we reenforce our superior position vis a vis Ada to those that Ada is training when Ada does not see it that way.
>>22776858because that was part of the deal when we changed in the first place.we find a way to free teh Queens and kick Pride demon ass in exchange for not dieing and control of the world went this is done.
>>22777024>...You do realize we hatched a master plan to break all of the queens to our heel in the first thread right? Plus, we have consistently asked about precisely what being an empress would mean and how to become one.I wouldn't call that a 'Master Plan' so much as 'Something a couple of people wanted to do'
>>22776858While I agree that it's best for Ada to run the city, we still can aim for the far bigger goal of running the planet. Think about it. If we have Ada's loyalty, she would be even more helpful, once we set our eyes beyond our current town.>>22776697 this seems unnecessary, and may cause internal conflict that we don't need.>>22776569I don't think Ada is that power hungry, she was mostly obsessed with this town because she was planning/working for 10 years. Also, she cant have her Succubi faction as she cant turn people into succubi. And she can't go public, as other Pride Demons will go to war with her.People, give her some credit. I don't think she is backstabing bitch.
>>22776569How will she get her own faction of succubi? The only ones in town are Brooklyn, her and Mina and the only ones powerful enough to make new succubi are the queens who are also on our side. She wants this little town, she can have it. We have the rest of the world to conquer.
>>22777086I never said she was a backstabbing bitch. I simply think that allowing her to train those we turn into succubi is a bad idea because the nature of the training we are proposing ensures that those new recruits will be primarily loyal to her. And guess what, if the town that we will rely upon for funding is under her control, and half or more of the succubi listen to her first, guess who is going to inevitably call the shots? It won't be us it will be her, because she is more important to the group than we are. That's not treachery, that's just how things work. She's not disloyal, she just doesn't have any loyalty that I can see to us as a leader.
>>22777235We're not allowing her to train those we turn into succubi. We're allowing her to make Amanda and just Amanda more manageable. We're still very wary of turning Amanda into a succubus at all.
>>22777235>inevitably call the shots?the one that is a lord and backed by 8 Queens
Do Mina and Ada know that Brooklyn is a Succubi Lord? They seem not be reacting to that fact.
>>22777134We let her train and influence those we intend to turn into a succubi. Hell, some people are talking about letting her train the girl we want to turn into an aid. Guess what? If we do that we ain't going to be her master. I don't see her as a long term rival, I see her as a great potential subordinate. But to do that we first have to take some steps to ensure that the power imbalance in our relationship is great enough that she is willing to acknowledge she works for us.
>>22777425Mina knows, her personality is such that she doesn't care. Ada doesn't know>>22777353They are in a prison and can't directly help us. Lets face it, if another succubi takes over and promises to free them, what are they going to do?>>22777316That's not what some people are talking about. Plus I would prefer to do that ourselves anyway, since that is a useful skill for a ruler of a planet to have.
>>22777483Ada isn't a Lord, she's nowhere near strong enough to free the Queens. And I don't see anybody at all talking about letting Ada make everyone we recruit her bitch, which is what you seem to be arguing against. Because that would be stupid.
>>22777543Lord is just a title, like all other demonic titles. No, but there is a danger that she would be more loyal to Ada than to us. Plus, I want to do it ourselves anyway because it would be fun and we need to learn how to do these sorts of things if we ever want to be a ruler. Hell, why do you want her help anyway?
>>22777719Lord isn't just a title "Lord's are more powerful yes, but right now the Queen's barely had power to turn you into a Demon Lord. Normally you'd start off much stronger, but they couldn't do that.You'd be able to learn magic and your other abilities faster compared to other demons though." - thread one
>>22777719>Lord is just a title,It's not just a title, it also means Brooklyn has better potential for getting stonger.>>22777798what he said. (just noticed that post once I started this one)
>>22777719If I remember right Sandact said at one point that a lord was a different more powerful kind of succubus.
>>22777719Lord isn't just a title. It took 7 queens in a big ritual together to make us, a remarkably weak Lord.The remaining Gemini Queen can use her power (i.e. less than 1/7 of that) to make a normal succubutt all by herself.
Both a demon and a Demon Lord could, in theory, reach the same power level. Demon Lords will be getting there faster though. Compare the amount of things you've learned compared to how fast Mina took to learn her first upgrade, or Brodin.
>>22778301Interesting. I still want to take care of Amanda ourself. If nothing else, its good practice.
>>22778340true, but there is no reason Ada can't help. She is more experienced in that sort of thing and may offer advise to us.
>>22778301so we getting an update soon? We are autosaging and on the 5th page.
>>22778470If necessary she can help us out, but I would like to start of with the suggestion idea that has been bandied about.
>>22778480whelp, i guess it's time to Archive the thread then
Yea, I wanted to do one more update, but it'd need to wait until after my game. Ok well, maybe over the weekend.
personally i think we should approach that one girl who has alot of faith (can't remember her name) and try to slowly convince her that the world is not black and white.
>>22778742I've always seen that as a desirable side objective, not entirely necessary but would be great to do it
