Welcome to Millicent Fauxly Quest.>Before Millicent arrived at Hogwarts she was a prized daughter in a pureblood wizarding family. She has little knowledge of the muggle world and doesn’t show any fascination for it. >Hogwarts has changed Millicent in ways she didn’t expect. She thought she was going to be a Slytherin like her bitter rival (who has become a friend) and older sister, Maud. Instead she was placed in Ravenclaw house, something which has disgraced Millicent and her family in their pureblood social circles. >The best easiest way to roleplay Millicent is ‘Raven’ from Teen Titans, this was purely by the actions of those in the quest (and a happy one at that). >Millicent likes to be left alone to her own devices, she has a competitive streak but also a yearning for the contact and approval of others despite what she may tell herself. She likes to be centre of attention when she has earned it through being the best at something, not out of fame or through an embarrassing incident. Major Character Traits:>Millicent seeks approval from her father above most things>She has a fear of large bodies of water>She is best friends and can tell Olivia anythingNew comers are more than welcome.

Rolled 65They see me rollin'
>>24151808All the fields except the one I wanted...
Rolled 7inaban here! Doing a barrel roll!
Rolled 71Dice don't fail me now.
You make an attempt to reeanct the scene with Elise, using her like a puppet as you go on for about three minutes, mimicking Robert’s voice poorly. Nothing happens. >Go find Robert>Seek alternative plan of action
Words cannot express how happy I am to finally experience a Millicent Fauxley quest after reading the threads on suptg. I've been monitoring /tg/ constantly the entire weekend.
Rolled 95>>24151924> Seek alternative plan of action.Why not knock on the door? If this fails, might as well go searching for Robert.>>24151925Please don't lurk, participate as well.
>>24151924Well, we could just Leviosa up the shaft, but I suspect there would be security precautions against uninvited guests.Use Leviosa to send something up as a test?
>>24151961So glad that I've forgotten to remove my dice roll in my email box thingy.
>>24151924Turn around and shrug, saying we'll have to get Robert.
>>24151961>Why not knock on the door? Second.Also, shout "Hello! Anyone in?"Look around, see if he has a door bell or something too.
Rolled 81>>24151924I thought we had photographic memory? Also yes we should knock.
>>24152024changing my vote to this then
>>24152209never mind seems my idea won
You turn and shrug to the others as no real idea comes to mind as to what to do. ”We could go speak to Robert” says Olivia “Though I would rather not”Joel hums in agreement as he mulls over what’s best to do. Nigel on the other hand seems to have wandered off down the hall. “Nigel?” you say, wandering down to see what he’s up to. He’s standing in front of a portrait. “Hello” he says pleasantly to an old man slumped in a chair in the portrait. “I was wondering if you could help me.”The old man scratches his bald head and leans forward, the hairs of his beard fluffing with every word he speaks in a low huff. “And what could a first year possibly need beyond being-in-lessons-when-they’re-supposed-to?”Nigel doesn’t falter, he replies in earnest. ”We have a matter to speak to the Headmaster about, would you be so kind as to give us the password so we may do so?””No”“Why?”“He’s not in”“Where’s he gone?”“Beats me”Nigel looks to you for some assistance. >Question the portrait>try something else>Go talk to Robert
>>24152295>Go to class.The big reason for going to see him right away was to confirm/deny that he and the flying teacher are one and the same.If he's not here then that's already over.We can come back later when he's in if we still want to talk to him.
Well, if he's not in..."Thank you for your assistance.">go to class
Rolled 17>>24152295Go to class. We are a Ravenclaw and I'm tired of falling behind in our studies. We haven't tipped our hand to Bergle yet so we should wait to be more subtle.
>>24152440My writing is almost bareable when you shop it like that. 10/10.
>>24152295I see no reason to doubt him, though that is some troubling information.
I always miss the quest these days, so I have no clue if this is still relevant:If we want to find out if Maud is a contestant, shouldn't we just try to find out if she got detention for trying to steal one of the crystal spheres?
Rolled 84>>24152558Considering that we have identified the BBEG, our relationship with Maud will probably be relegated to post-climatic battle cleanup.
>>24152295Question the portrait. Has the headmaster been acting strange recently?
>>24152609I don't know, I think she's a part of this, considering that bad things have been happening to contestants.I think we should get confronting her out of the way, maybe have Joel lurking nearby to subdue her with his hero powers.
IM HERE IN TIME!
Ideas for us to Succeed and not Die:I think the biggest key to our success is not relying on dice during life or death situations. We do this with preparation.Magical amulets. See if we can engrave a shield spell on an amulet. If we have something that will automatically take the hit even if we fail our roll, we'll be much better off.Weapons. Considering the number of times we've already been attacked, I think it's perfectly sensible to carry a few weapons.A knife- Simple, effective and likely to catch someone off guard as a weapon of last resort.Prepared potions- Smoke bomb to cover our escape. An exploding potion so we have an attack that doesn't rely on dice.Thoughts? Other ideas?
You stand beside Nigel and look up at the portrait. “Ah! A Fauxly!” he exclaims with joy “The pride of Slytherin!”>Yep, Slytherin all the way>See the robes? Not a Slytherin. >other
>>24152663>Other"Are you mocking me? You know I'm not Slytherin."
>>24152663sarcastically >Yep, Slytherin all the way
>>24152663>Yep, Slytherin all the way*Spoken with deep, scathing, sarcasm.**Finger at our robes.*"Are you mocking me? You know I'm not Slytherin."
>>24152663"...Right.Well have you noticed anything strange about the headmaster recently?"
>>24151747>>24152663>Slytherin>Nigga we blue nowSeriously, it seems the old man seems to be blind just like very fuckin portraitLet's take advantage of that>>24152661We are economically restricted because hurrr disowned by parents
Rolled 22>>24152690>>24152709>>24152741Lolno. How is that in-character?>>24152663Simply ignore the comment and hope he doesn't notice. "Sir, I'm afraid we need to contact the Headmaster, we have found information on a plot to harm students, and their next target is going to be a first-year Slytherin. This is an emergency.
>>24152663"How do you know my family?"Also enquire as to how he recognised you based on looks alone.Maybe he's colourblind, hence he doesn't realise we're Ravenclaw?
Roll for Luck. 1d100. 65 or less wins.
>>24152747Wait... That isn't your normal tripcode.
Rolled 53>>24152802What are we rolling for?
>>24152824Doesn't matterNice roll
Rolled 23>>24152829Oh thank god I was about to panic.
>>24152787>Lolno. How is that in-character?We are generally anti-social and he just hit a seriously sore spot.That's how it's in character.>A Fauxly, The pride of Slytherin!Yes, and they are on the edge of fucking disowning us because we didn't get in.
(Sorry for ignoring the dialog input there, had an idea and want to roll with it. See below)With an amazing spot of luck you realize that the old man hasn’t put his glasses on which sit limply in his hand. He continues to look at you with a dull gaze as if tired of a hard day’s reading, perhaps his reason for not realizing you’re wearing a blue lined robe is because he’s colour-blind…Any doubt of course would be rendered from his mind the moment he puts on his specs, being as Nigel stands next to you with the same coloured robes on. You notice the old man’s hand ascend as he fidgets to put the glasses on, you have to distract him! Say something! Quick!
>>24152962Do we know any minor charms that can change the color of our robes?
Rolled 64>>24152962"Sir! One of Slytherin's first years is in danger. We've uncovered a plot that needs to be brought to the Headmasters attention at once!"
>>24152767>We are economically restricted because hurrr disowned by parentsWe have access to a potions lab. We already have one potion in our inventory that we brewed during class and kept.In the cannon-verse, Harry and Co were always sneaking away ingredients to brew potions and stuff in secret.If we go to the library and look for a book on engraving amulets, we might be able to do that ourself.At the very least, it's worth looking into.
>>24152962"THE HOUSE ELVES ARE IN OPEN REBELLION WE NEED THE HEADMASTER NOW!"
>>24152962>Millicent Fauxley at your service my good sir, I am at hurry>I need to get into this office immediately>>24152997Do we?>but we studied
>>24152915>We are generally anti-social and he just hit a seriously sore spot.>That's how it's in character.
>>24153018are you suggesting we become a street peddling gypsy?
>>24152962"Sir, we must speak to the Headmaster about a danger to a Slytherin student. This is an urgent matter, sir."
>>24152962>try to startle him and make him drop his glasses by yelling >>24153031out very loudly
>>24152962Can we roll to know who this geezer is? Ourebloods LOVE their history lessons. even the blood-traitor weasleys knew their lineage so we might remember if he's related to us
>>24153018>sneaking awaysee>>24153053But the idea is nice.We need shit.And as always >Occlumency>Legilimency
"Sir, we must speak to the Headmaster about a danger to a Slytherin student. This is an urgent matter, sir."Your words are precise and to the point and is enough to stop the old man in his tracks and to stop him from putting on his spectacles. ”Really?” he says, intrigued and worried in equal measure “I do hope it has nothing to do with your sister, you better go in at once and wait for the Headmaster inside. The password is ‘It’s Raining Inside’>Use password>Speak with the portrait some more>Seek alternative plan of action
>>24153145"Thank you very much for your assistance.">Use password
>>24153053>are you suggesting we become a street peddling gypsy?Wut?Err... No. I'm suggesting we prepare some potions and charms in advance so we don't need to rely only on dice rolls during life and death situations.Having a shield charm engraved on an amulet to take the hit what we fail our roll could save our life.Having a paralyzing potion to throw when our hex roll fails could win the fight.
>>24153145thank him and then hurry in to the headmasters office.
>>24153145"Our sister? Why would Maud be in trouble?"At this point we already have the password, so it doesn't matter whether he knows we're in Ravenclaw or not.
>>24153177I cast my vote for thanking him. Fauxleys ARE raised with manners after all
>>24153145"run ahead guys, i have to something else to discuss.">Speak with the portrait some more, ask specifically what he knows about the family and the slytherin legacy
>>24153178oh, i like that. The gypsy thing can be our fall back.
Rolled 29>>24153145Thank him, then get in the office. Manners are important
>>24153145>Speak with the portrait some more"Then you have been informed, sir? How much have you been told so far?"
>>24153145This>>24153177Draw the wand>mfw Aspen master race>>24153145also how the fuck does he knows us?Does Fauxley's have a significant physical trait that distinguishes them?
>>24153240We could learn the habits of the headmaster with this. Ask him where the headmaster might be.
>>24153264There's a reason why we embarrassed our parents when it was announced that we're in Ravenclaw.
>>24153192So no one but me thinks it's a bit worrisome that when we said a Slytherin student would be in danger, Maud was the first person this portrait thought of?
Rolled 33You thank for the portrait for his assistance as you work up to asking some more questions, it’ll have to wait for another time however as Joel calls you over. You draw your wand and recite the password and, would you know it, the eagle statue raises into a narrow stairwell. The four of you make you way up into the office before the stairwell closes behind you. Looking around the office you remember the last time you were here speaking with the Headmaster about being sorted into Ravenclaw. You had made the decision to stick with the hat’s choice…though whether you made the right one is still for you to decide. >Search Office>Wait for Headmaster>other
>>24153340nigga we wizard famous
>>24153340We're currently halfway disowned and our family is the laughing stock of the pureblood community.>>24153362Its VERY worrisome, we need to ask this guy his name and what he knows and well, who our family is? We don't really know much about our families legacy yet our reputation seems to proceed us.
Rolled 52>>24153399You're family is respected among slytherins, other than that you're just like everybody else.
>>24153362That IS why I wanted to ask the portrait about what it knows.>>24153394>Search OfficeBut don't TOUCH anything.
>>24153423that's what i mean i just added some ghetto flare.
>>24153394What's the office look like again? if it's dumbly-esque it might be worth it, if it's full of dangerous shit searching could be a bad idea
>>24153426Going with this. Unless looking at something counts the same as touching something in the Wizardry world.
>>24153394The only reason we came was to see if the headmaster wasn't here, right? Because that would mean Bergle is somehow pretending to be the headmaster.So that suspicion is confirmed, the headmaster is an imposter. Lets>look around for incriminating evidence and maybe useful books/wizard tools
>>24153399No, I got that.But if he knows us as "dat Fauxley which sorted into bluuz", he wouldn't say hurr muh SlytherinIf he doesn't know the fiasco then how did he picked us as a Fauxley?Is it the robe?Is it the invisible billboard on our head that says that we are a Fauxley?>>24153426>>24153437>>24153451Spotcheck?
>>24153437>dumbledores office>safepick one, he had candy that tried to eat you.
>>24153480of course it's not safe, but we need evidence and tools, and we're not going to get either playing it safe. Gotta take risks sometimes!
Rolled 57>>24153475Rolling for>Accio everything
>>24153475shit yeah we search that
>>24153526doodlefag should do an accio everything picture with like a bookcase falling on millie
>>24153426Yeah that sounds good.
Rolled 9Roll 1d100 for Search. I’ll decide on degrees of success.
Rolled 96>>24153596>Rolled 9I have a bad feeling about this.
Oh boy, am I on time!? Nice.
>>24153611Nice going Ambition.That's why Slytherin sucks.
>>24153611We are finding so much nothing.
Rolled 44>>24153611...uh oh
>>24153611>And the headmaster's office goes up in flames
Rolled 37>>24153596I spy with my little eye...
>>24153611Fate point guis? Or not?
i just wanted to have funhopefully we don't get sucked into another dimension
Rolled 54>>24153650Do you feel like we'll jusgt get the fate point for free? DO WE FEEL LUCKY
>>24153611OH SHIII->>24153615MY SIDES.
>>24153666Well... this zoom-in is appropriate.
we are so fucked ;_; i regret nothing
Guis! Calm down! Fate point or not?
>>24153749fuck it, I vote fate point, we still have 2
Rolled 76>>24153683>>24153749Heart of the Cards!Winds of Destiny, CHANGE!
>>24153749i dunno, i mean, i kinda want to let this play out? but i don't wanna die. Or even worse, get saved by joel. Again.
>>24153749I say we save them, I mean, what's the worst that could happen?
>>24153780Yes, screw Joel.Fate point, please!
>>24153780Well, I don't want to prolong this any further so let the die lie then.
eh, im going to vote no fate point.
>>24153780>>24153804I would rather jump into the lake then get saved by Joel again.
Rolled 60You decide to search the place for some evidence to support your theory that Bergle being the impostor. The group splits up as everyone heads off in their own direction; you take the flight of stairs and look for something, anything, which might further validate your suspicions. You come across a series of books that line the back wall above a map of the castle. You remove a couple books and look inside. Most are in another language so you can’t even begin to decipher their meanings or what use they might have. As you set a couple aside you notice another book at the back that you might just be able to reach…you stretch your fingers as you dig your hand inside to grab it. You’ve. Almost. Got. It…The entire bookcase tumbles down and almost crushes you as books rain down and strike the floor. You take a hit to the eyebrow which will definitely leave a bruise if not a cut if you’re not lucky. The others run over to see if you’re okay. Joel kneels beside you and casts Wingardium Leviosa to set the bookcase back. Nigel and Olivia lift you to your feet and brush you off as Joel sees to packing the books away, one at a time as he reads the covers, just as perplexed as you. “Are you okay?” asks Nigel “That cut looks like it hurts”>Stings like a--, whatever stings feel like. >Yep, thanks for your concern. >Find anything?>other
Rolled 44>>24153857>that was fun to write. >trying a slightly different writing style
>>24153857>Yep, just stings a bit. Find anything?
>>24153857God fucking damnit Joel.I'd really rather have Maud as any ally and Joel as a rival.
>>24153857Stings like a Doxie, Anyone spot anything?Also, see if we can find that book we stretched for
>>24153884>>24153898Yeah that sounds good.
>>24153857>Find anything?>other: look around for that book we were reaching for
>>24153907Let's go with this.
>>24153867I say it works.>>24153857> OtherFavor that eye that has the cut while look to see if we got the book or not.
Rolled 63“Stings like a doxie” you say with thinly veiled frustration “Find anything?” Both Nigel and Olivia give sad little shrugs of defeat as Joel finishes stacking the books, half way through he got tired of doing it by hand and like a true wizard saw to using a spell to do it for him. You turn back to the shelf to find the book you were reaching for…it’s a book on how to tame unicorns…you give an internal scream as you clench your fists. You hear the sound of ascending footsteps!>Hide>Wait>other
Rolled 56Why are we such a clutz?Can't even ride a broom, search a goddamn bookcase, travel on boat.......
>>24154018Wait and lie like a rug.Also tame unicorns? Silly Milly we have that ...ahem. built in
>>24154018>Wait in a panic
>>24154018>other>Defiantly stand in the breach like a man (elven year old girl) possessed.

Rolled 3>>24154018>Wand with whom I have lived, wand with whom I now die, serve right and justice one last time, seek one last heart of evil, still one last life of pain, hx well old friend, and then farewell.
>>24154018Make sure it doesn't look like we've been snooping around.
Rolled 78>>24154030It's like you're the ron of the story or something...AHAHAHAHAHAHA:3
>>24154097>Topple a shelf>Have massive forehead bruise/cut>look like we're not snooping around
>>24154037>WaitWe can always say we were only curious about the books. Which we were, so it isn't a lie.Also, taming unicorns?Didn't the unicorn charge toward Bergle during Care of Magical Creatures? Hmm.
>>24154106>we're the bumbling sidekick>and Hermione>at the same timeWE COULD'VE BEEN RUTHLESS, GUYS

Rolled 1>>24154164I didn't hear you?
>>24154106Never! I reject your reality and substitute my own!
>>24154159>>24154183I feel this bodes poorly for us.
>>24154183STOP IT YOU'RE STEALING ALL THE 1s
>>24154198>>24154203Guys, don't worry, the second 1 was a 1d1.
you can't hide from the headmaster of hogwarts. let's try and hide nonetheless.captcha: avoid eedsufa.let's also avoid the eedsufa.
I need a clear answer. >Hide >WaitThink this through.
>>24154227>WaitHonestly I doubt we have much chance of hiding.
>>24154227i am strong supporter of the wait and die honorably option.
>>24154227Well, if we hide, then either he'll find us or he won't, and we can either watch him for something suspicious or get our asses reamed out/killed.If we wait, then we can either talk to the headmaster (if it's really him), or try and smooth talk our way out of this.I say we hide.
>>24154227I am voting wait, because the chances of hide working is very low.
Polite reminder to put "quest" in your quest thread subject fields
>>24154227Wait....Since he's helped us this far, might as well ask Joel if he knows any minor healing spells.Lousy goddamn prodigy.
>>24154227>WaitAs I said, we can always just say we were curious about what kind of books he had.

>>24154304>DM is not the enemyWe're a fucking sidekick to one of those 'lazy genius' types who somehow is still in Ravenclaw despite having committed what should be the capital sin of that house, intellectual sloth.
>>24154436>We're a fucking sidekick to one of those 'lazy genius' types who somehow is still in Ravenclaw despite having committed what should be the capital sin of that house, intellectual sloth.I agree.
>>24154436He makes a good point.
At the sound of ascending footsteps you make the decision to take the book in hand, wand in the other, and stand your ground. Is it bravado? Have you simply come to a point where having the potential culprit behind all the trouble you’ve been having walk straight up that stairwell is too much to pass up? You stay where you are as Nigel and Olivia scramble behind a bookshelf.Joel stands by your side, wand drawn and gives you a nod with a grin whilst giving you a slight nudge. Roll 1d100.
>>24154436oh comeon, remember neville? he was a fuckup until his very last year. We've already almost burned down a forest AND killed a house elf.We're so much more accomplished than him in our first year. ...i think.
Rolled 70>>24154481Screw you Joel, we don't need you
Rolled 72>>24154436Fuck Joel.
>>24154495Both failures on your part I might add.
Rolled 81>>24154481And look what he's doing now!This first year chump thinks he can take on a professor of the most prodigious magic school on the planet, and not get his ass handed to him.The only thing that would make things worse is if he's right.
Rolled 97>>24154481Make sure we don't curse first and ask questions never k?
Do you guys seriously hate Joel?
>>24154539Nope, I'm just jumping on the bandwagon.
>>24154539I've seen worse sidekicks.
>>24154539What's there to like?
>>24154539it's a running joke to hate joel
>>24154517Were they REALLY failures? :3c>>24154539mm, he's not a bad guy, but he's always the one saving us. fuck that dude, we don't need saving.

>>24154539Naah, I just like whining.
>>24154539he's like that friend you have that's obnoxiously pretty, never studies and passes everything, has your back in a fight and is your friend for some reason you can't discern.their presence is just irritating because you never get a chance to shine, yet you don't hate them enough to be outwardly angry at them.
>>24154497But here's the worst part, our luck is so shitty that we do need Joel.Constantly.
Rolled 6>>24154481Or thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkpsFnsuMUs
>>2415449770... Could've been worse, I guess.
>>24154648Especially considering the next three rolls after. The dice gods are against us today.
>>24154648Sigh... This will never get old.
You wait with bated breath for whoever it is to walk right up those stairs and look you in the eye. You’re shaking and have begun to sweat with anticipation, if only those bloody steps weren’t so damn steep and winding! Joel looks to you and you look back at him…his grin turns to something else as he bows his head and looks to the stairwell. A tall gaunt figure enters with billowing robes that could only belong to a wizard of high esteem; none other than Headmaster Tooledge. He stops at the entranceway as he gazes idly up at you both with an emotionless expression. You feel time pass excruciatingly slowly as he watches you with sunken eyes. “Mr. Barish. Miss. Fauxly” he says in a droll voice “Is something the matter?”>Answer him (give reasoning behind answer)>Say nothing>other
>>24154630>mfw im that friend
>>24154644>The Sword of Promised VictoryMY HYPE METER CANNOT BE ANYTHING LESS THAN MAXIMUM RIGHT NOW
>>24154690Say nothing to make him sweat. Just stare at him.
Rolled 1>>24154690Ask him what the answer to the first question we asked him when we last spoke was. not twice pretend tooledge
>>24154690punch his dick
>>24154690What happened between Professor Trib, Professor Bergle, and Nathaniel, back when they were students?
>>24154690Well, we know who's causing all of the trouble now. We're just a little frighten that the culprit is aware of us knowing of his identity.
>>24154752...Joel and us are both eleven.He is the headmaster of Hogwarts.Why do we keep following Joel's lead?

You say nothing has doubt enters your mind. This is the only outcome that doesn’t give you an answer; right now you could be in a room with the culprit of all your problems or it could be the real headmaster. To not handle this situation with supreme caution could mean your life. With a glance at Joel you can see his jaw is clenched as he is equally as puzzled as you. Tooledge enters the room in earnest and sits in an armchair facing away from you. “Care to explain that nasty cut on your brow?” he says, resting his head in his hand as if the weight of the world is on his shoulders. >I was snooping around looking for answers to my problem, Joel knows, I know it was wrong of me, sir. >I had an accident in during Professor Bergle’s class and cut myself when I fell, I haven’t been to see the nurse yet. >say nothing>seek an alternative in-character course of action
>>24155106I don't think it's fair you are having us be frozen in helplessness the last couple of rounds. If you don't think there is consensus you should call for a vote before writing something in-story.
Rolled 48>>24155106Still doing this >>24154769Apologize of course if it IS him, can't be too careful you see
Rolled 58>>24155060>>24155069Well at the very least we can confirm it is the one that we first talked.I vote for this>>24155060wanna /ss/?Seriously in flame wars, trashtalk is a must.
>>24155106>seek an alternative in-character course of action"I fell and cut it when I slipped in a puddle of water."But more importantly, sir, your sister wished us to tell you that her friend has left her."
>>24155238get out of here kanahashi, you're dead
>>24155106>I had an accident in during Professor Bergle’s class and cut myself when I fell, I haven’t been to see the nurse yet. if he is bergle he might slip that he knows this is bullshit>>24155238 oh in that case, have at you slime!
>>24155106"It was a book on how to tame unicorns sir.I simply couldn't resist."
Rolled 118“It’s really nothing” you say, tapping the cut with you finger and looking down at the sheen of blood. “By the way sir…”Tooledge sits up and peers round the armchair with one arm supporting him, in the light you feel a twinge in your stomach at the sight of him. You’ve never seen him look so old before.”Yes?” he says, swallowing audibly with drowsy eyes. “"Sir, your sister wished us to tell you that her friend has left her." you say, gripping your wand tightly for something, anything to happen. You can feel a pressure building in your head which is only subdued by the knowledge that Tooledge might give the correct answer and that you’re not alone in the room…yet with if you’ve just put your friends in grave danger? What if you’re wrong and Nigel, Joel and Olivia are going to be the real causalities of this situation. Part of you wishes you could take the words back as you look at Tooledge mull over an answer. He looks at you, then to Joel, and then over to the bookcase where Nigel and Olivia are hid. ”I don’t have a sister” he says, waiting to gauge your reaction. >Pretend that he answered the question correctly>Run like a motherfucker>An alternative course of action.
Rolled 94>>24155408oh I thought PETRIFICUS TOTALUS
>>24155408>An alternative course of action.PETRIFICUS TOTALUS!
>>24155408BUST OUT THE FATE POINTS AND CAP HIS ASS WITH A HEX

>>24155462Except he isn't?At all?
Rolled 372In a moment such as this a discussion should be held for the best course of action which takes in all points of view. This is the moment that can go right or wrong based on your decision. I'll continue when I feel a reasoned and fair course of action has been met by everyone :)
>>24155408Burn all fate points. Petrificus TotalusSNEAK ATTACK!
>>24155442>>24155453>>24155462>>24155543We would not survive that fight. Unless Joel really is a super wizard genius. Even then, we would probably get thrashed.
>>24155541General consensus seems to be to petrificus totalis to his fucking face.The only question is how many fate points to use.
what does him having a sister have to do with it?
>>24155541Let him have his way with us.PETRIFICUS TOTALIS
this might be the moment where an adult wizard get ambushed by a number of kid, everyone shouting a different hex, and suddenly realizes he's unable to deflect them all.I propose burning a fate point for maximum outcome.
>>24155585The correct answer is all of them.
>>24155585Well, no, it's the first knee-jerk reaction.But really, we should act as if he answered correctly. Give him a false report on our progress in the contest.
>>24155541I would like to remind you that there are MANY instances in canon where unskilled children have dropped powerful adult characters via first striking.
>>24155408We gave him time to raise his guard, so fighting him is suicide.Running is futile.Only thing left to do is lie."Oh good, it's really you then. I'm sorry to bother you, but it's about Nathaniel. Do you know how long he's been doing this contest? At first I thought he only started doing it this year, due to him choosing first year students. But it seems as if this task is a lot harder than I thought it would be, maybe even impossible."
>>24155642A Tactical Genius would act like he gave the correct answer and get help.if the consensus is to blast i won't object to that though, he's sitting down and facing away from us, he couldn't be an easier target.
>>24155456If we fail the roll, we have our wand's special ability to re-roll again.
>>24155666i don't know.what if he's giving us a wrong answer by purpose? We know he's not him, he knows he's not him, so keeping the ruse is maybe inadeguate.Wait, what if this is really him and we never met the real him?
Petrificus Totalus is the Gryffindor answer. Let's play it like he answered the question correctly. And since we know he's full of shit, we can make up a reason as to why we are here.>Good, you told us to keep you updated on the contest. I have a good lead on the magic ball
>>24155541I honestly believe that curses to the face are the answer. We outnumber him and he does not have his wand drawnSaying this, he's happy to sit down and answer the question, so if he IS a bad guy, he has a plan. therefore, despite my gut instinct, we should feed him a false report on our progress and inform him we suspect tribThen zap his shit when he lets his guard down
>>24155702THIS SITUATION DEMANDS FATE POINT USAGE>>24155703If it is him, then he should be able to handle us. If it isn't, then hopefully he can't.
>>24155660Except it's not first strike at all.He's gotten a chance to look at us, and Joel, and he already knows where Nigel and Olivia are.Sure a surprise attack could net us a victory, but he is not surprised.His weariness is because he is prepared to kill us all if he thinks we saw through him.
>>24155713actually that's a great reaction.I vote this.
>>24155721On second thought, I like this.
>>24155713Seriously, we're Ravenclaw, real Ravenclaw, not whatever Joel is.
>>24155713Yes, and we take control of the conversation back from Joel!
>>24155713Fine. Voting for this.
Rolled 30>>24155360You twonk>>24155408>>24155408>give a look to Joel>redraw the wand>I thought you were someone else>Guys could you give me a couple of minutes with Prof.They got out.>Put on your Political faceDon't burn Fate point, yet
>>24155713>>24155752And that's a Slythering answer. Ravenclaw wants to just get it over with so we can do more important things.Like outdoing Joel
>>24155784No. No Politics. Politics are for faggot slytherins
>>24155713consensus has been reached. all battlestations stand by. code is still red.
>>24155784Okay, this sounds worthy of a Fauxly. You have my vote, sir.
>>24155812No, a Slytherin answer is to sell our friends upriver and see where that gets us.And we can't beat Joel at his own game.We can only show Joel that his game is stupid.
>>24155713this will do we need to get a adult in here or some wizard cops
we also need this thread archived
My conclusion:1. Pretend he got the right answer2. Get friends to leave including Joel3. Act like a true Ravenclaw and good person by getting friends out of trouble whilst also using our smarts to outwit Bergle or whoever it is4. Leave situation alive and with options
damn it HPQ you put us in a hard situation.
>>24155892Sounds right to me>>24155920But isn't it so very ravenclaw? What does harry the gryffindor do? Shoot everything in his showdown. What does millie the ravenclaw do? Play chess against someone who's side of the board we can't see
>>24155920We put ourselves into it.Us and the Dice Gods.
>>24155892Yeah that sounds good.Although I'm not sure if we should go with >>24155713 specifically.
Rolled 19>>24155826Now we are aware, that this person is not the one that we first met.We know the enemy.That this person is not, if he was he would turn us to dust because there is literally no other way for him.Or is it?He's playing the dumb.He's the BBEG, we must evacuate the room, but others first.If he is the BBEg he will not allow others to leave the roomWhy?Because he can foresee that they konw stuff and if we come back mindfucked or do not come at all, he is screwed.>>24155784>give a look to Joel>redraw the wand>I thought you were someone else>Guys could you give me a couple of minutes with Prof.They got out.>Put on your Political faceDon't burn Fate point, yetRepeating my point.If they got out, we tactical political geniusIf they don't get out, we burn shit.We die Standing
>>24156005Thing is, we won't die. there is a grand total of one way out of this room. he has so far only been a thief. quadruple homicide is a hell of a jump. also, if we get stuck here alone, you do know who's coming to rescue us right?
Ok so we need to consolidate the votes.all for keeping our friends out and diplomating this shit say 1 all for attacking his balls off say 2 all for other say 31
HPQ? You alive?
>>24155969>But isn't it so very ravenclawohhhhh youuuuuuu
>>24156005God damn it, /tg/. This is why we're tactical genius. We just can't get into a consensus on one idea and instead just fling around our ideas until something so outlandish hits the bullseye and we all agree to take it....Only to be the worst idea to follow upon.Com'on, mang. Com'on...
>>24156058Yep. Ever vigilant. A silent guardian.
>>241560531and so help me god joel if you object I'm going to ram my wand so far up your ass you'll taste sawdust

>>24156150You've been forewarned. This isn't going to turn out very well.
>>24156196wait shit duh, of course he'll just mind control us... fuck we've got to keep joel around haven't weChanging my vote to 3
>>24156208Think about it, if we fuck up now, he'll probably trap us and give us a reason to plot our grand escape!
lets just stick with 1 and let OP write it out.Im glad we have a good dialogue going but if we don't stop flip-floping we're never going to get out of this scene.

"okay" you say, handing her other to Tooledge who gently holds her. "My, my what a lovely doll you have here" says Tooledge "my older sister used to have one quite similar to this" He hands Elise back to you and pockets his glasses. "One of the remarkable things about dolls is that they will never leave you" he says. He leans forward, smiling kindly. "Not unless you want them to. The choice is yours" He asks if there is anything else you wish to speak to him about. >>24156225>>24156225>>24156196We got our friends who knows pretty much everything.And he will not think this is the case because hurrrr asocial trait>understand.jpgTHAT IS WHY GHASTLY PICKED USLONER,TALENTED, NO BACKUP, EASY TO DISPOSEIf he mindfucks us, friends will notice.They will bust him and ghost like heroes.And he will lose the "Castles" the game.That will be his mistake.

You feel your heart thumping in your chest and your palms sweaty as you feel your grip on the wand tighten. In a state of panic you see yourself, a helpless little first year standing in a room with a potential criminal with the power to end your life. Do you do what Joel seems to imply and fight your way out of the situation? No, you’re better than that, you’re not going to make such a brash move that could put your friends in danger. It is in this moment that you realize just how dear your friends are to you. The thought of losing any of them is unthinkable. It’s simply not an option. You feel a very human fear which is replaced by something else…calm. You’ve never thought more clearly in your life, you can see every potential outcome mapped out before you as if it were a text book before your eyes, another book in the library that will give you the answers you need. You relax and give a cheerful smile to the headmaster as you take a sigh of relief. “Do you mind if we speak in private sir?” you say, eyes innocent and non-threatening, giving nothing of your game away. (part one)
>>24156393Like it'd be tricky.We need to make him think both that we don't suspect he's not really the headmaster, and that we don't think Bergle is behind this.
(part two)>>24156460The Headmaster looks at you and to the others. You can see the decision forming in his eyes, you know what he’s answer is going to be before he says it.“Of course, Millicent” he says with a forced smile “Your friends may come out from behind the bookshelf”Nigel and Olivia wander round with confused expressions as they go with a perplexed Joel to the stairwell, give a backwards glance at you and then disappear as they descend. You’re alone with him now as he turns back and sits face on in the seat, his back to you. ”Please sit with me” he says as he gestures with a spindly hand towards the chair opposite him. You walk with an ease in your step before sitting before him. “How is the hunt for the Trident coming along?” he says “Any luck?”>I’ve discovered its location, sir. I’ll bring it to you in the morning. >Still no luck, but I’m close, all I need is a little more time. >No sir, no luck at all. >Alternative course of action.
>>24156470I think I've almost figured it out. Would you like come with me tomorrow to find it?
>>24156470we need him to think he needs us or he'll just ask where it is. So we need to tell him about the mannequin so far. We tell him we've almost got it assembled and are just enchanting it. we'll hand it over to Nathaniel and have the location soon
>>24156470"I'm making progress or at least I think I am, but it's a lot harder than I initially thought. When Nathaniel said he recruited students in their first year, I thought that meant that it would be relatively easy... but I think there's a reason that there are no records of ghosts using artificial bodies, and it's not due to none of them feeling like it."
>>24156470>Still no luck, but I’m close, all I need is a little more time."The construct is nearly complete, and with the acquisition of a crystal ball, should be ready."
Watch, we'll finish this quest. We'll nab the overseer, and we'll get to select a new trait. HPQuest will homebrew up a new one called Tactical Genius. I'd put money on it.

Wait, we're assuming that he wants us to make the mannequin?That doesn't seem to add up.I mean if the goal were that simple, why not simply use his decades of magical experience to make his own damn mannequin, give it to us (or a more unscrupulous student) and simply tell them to pass it off as ours to Nathanial.
>>24156731Dunno, but he told us that making this mannequin was more important than our studies.>>24156659Absolutely.
>>24156737Fuck if I know, captcha said it not me
>>24156731He wants the Trident, which means he needs the mannequin.
>>24156731maybe it's like a unicorn thing, you know, you can only do it if you're young/truly innocent/a virgin, ect ect.
>>24156786Or he wants to make sure no one ever learns how Nathanial died.If his actions are just to get the Trident, he makes even less sense than Voldemort.
