You sip your tea thoughtfully; the gang members you snatched from the streets of Eyesocket had turned out to hold a few marginally competent individuals after all. The remaining fifty or so in your dungeons are not so lucky. They have no place in your household staff; all that remains is to find a slaver who will take them. Then, you will have more than enough money to purchase a controlling interest in one of the airship yards of Mark; a first investment that will form a foundation for your expanded holdings. Now, where will you sell them, and whom to…?
>>25003354You are Isabella Katarina Markova, twelfth of the line of Carmilla, thirteen generations from Dracula, the First. This places you with enough blood and power to make you a minor noble in Shadescast, the city of the vampires, and possess your own castle- which does not necessarily have sensible geometry, and which is not always in the same place. Though your physical appearance is that of a young girl, you are actually three and a half centuries old. You spend your time responding to requests from other vampires for lore, and holding tea parties and other social events, both with humans and vampires. On occasion, you indulge in adding one or two of them to your collection of porcelain dolls…Recently, you were attacked by a human vampire hunter who managed to temporarily kill you. Upon rising from death, you captured him and left him in the tender hands of your doll collection… but first he managed to majorly deface your castle and burn a portion of your library, including some hard-to-replace texts. Signs point to him having been hired by a rival vampire… and one who was here, and managed to take one of your dolls. Currently, you are working to turn the mayor of Mark into your soft, gooey servant. The process will take one or two weeks more. You have an eye to investing in the airship trade- but first, you need to raise some seed money, so you have become a slaver temporarily in order to turn a quick dollar. > Full character sheet & background pastebin:http://pastebin.com/tK7nCkvq
>>25003354Hmm, think through any contacts we have in Shadesclast, people who have come to us for arcane advice who have business dealings along these lines. It would be far easier and faster to offload them onto someone who specializes in selling and buying slaves than to find individual purchasers ourself.
Can we pick up with the money-wizard?We never did sort out what to do with him.After that, let's go to the Shadescast save-market and find a buyer.
>>25003437I believe the consensus was that he was to be added to our staff and given control of our accounts, under light hypnotic control. His name is Thomas, unless you wish to change it to something else.
>>25003354Hmm, we'd broken twitchy's curse, but did we ever finish the conversation? If he hadn't committed to serving us we should probably finish that up. The excruciating pain from us ripping the curse from him should help.Also, did we take that blood sample?As to the sales, in 350 years we haven't found an auction house or reputable dealer in the vampire city? We need to make some contacts.
>>25003478We did take a sample of blood from him, but didn't make him drink ours. We're a bit of a recluse. Generally we've just been consulting with others and expanding our doll collection.
>>25003468Oh, that's fine then. Might want to put him under greater Domination, he's a known embezzler and said himself he was a flight risk.Dominate 10 goons to act as a house guard, don't want our new staff running off before they're trained. Then head to the market.
>>25003510We have a sample of his blood, if he runs we'll be able to find him easily, he knows it's a bad idea, he's under light Domination and I don't want to go too heavy on Domination on him as we don't want our accountant to be unable to think for himself properly if we overdo the Domination.Keep an eye on him and watch for signs of disobedience, but no need to pull the trigger on it yet.
>>25003478And no, we didn't finish that conversation really, but I'm going to assume it went roughly the same as the others in order to hurry things on a little.
>>25003543Do note that as a spellcaster, he's not quite human. He's going to be a bit harder to control. >>25003478>>25003437>>25003415Roll Acumen to select a buyer for our new slaves.
>>25003546That's fine. Assign some guards and let's move on.If we don't have existing contacts to buy the slaves, we'll have to fine one.The slave-market would seem like the place to look. To the slave-market!
Rolled 34>>25003576Hopefully we know a guy, we might be a weird loner but people do come to visit every once in a while.
Rolled 29>>25003576>Do note that as a spellcaster, he's not quite human. He's going to be a bit harder to control. Oh, give him some proper Domination then.
>>25003603Naturally, we know where to find quality chattel for sale, and who to call up to sell on our own chattel. A vampire by the name of Earl Blackford. Seventh of the line of Orlov, he's made a name for himself among the nobles of Shadesclast by buying and selling chattel.
>>25003655He's traded with us before, as we've added some of his wares to our doll collection in exchange for some aid in subduing particularly strong-willed chattel. Will you handle the transaction in person or have one of your servants do so?
>>25003683In person, I believe we ought to pay him a visit or invite him over for tea to discuss the matter. I would prefer inviting him over, but will bow to standard etiquette if it suggests that we ought to visit him instead.
>>25003543>we don't want our accountant to be unable to think for himself properly if we overdo the Domination.Alucard had already explicitly said it Domination doesn't stop them thinking for themselves.From last thread:>Domination doesn't kill ability to think for yourself.It does kill risk-taking and personal initiative. IE, dominated people won't advise you unless you ask them, and will hesitate to take any action that might harm you.
>>25003636This is actually a reason not to Dominate him outright. As it stands, his mental defenses are running more or less on autopilot, and we can creep in edgeways. Direct domination will result in him throwing his full weight against us at inconvenient moments.
>>25003704Seconded. We will enjoy tea with him and discuss business.
yup, still voting for the gentle touch on all our new minions. We want them to make their own decisions. FOr our betterment of course. But having will-less slaves aren't going to cut it.
>>25003683Assuming he's visited us, how recently have we hosted him? Was it before or after the last time we remember seeing our missing doll?Regardless we should go in person.
>>25003713Oh, whatever gives us the best results controlling him then.
>>25003704One of the reasons you've cultivated a reputation as a recluse is so that others that etiquette would dictate you visit- normally vampires more powerful than you- will instead have to enter your castle, behind your threshold, where they will be much less of a threat. Of course, no vampire is ever expected to invite another in to their castle; there are special protocols for temporarily relaxing one's threshold to an outsider, which are commonly used. As such, it's more polite to visit others, but you can get away with asking most others to come to you.
>>25003740Might I amend your suggestion to include an exception for correcting any misbehaviors of our new minions?
>>25003761The question is really "do we want someone devoted to us NOW, who could become an enemy at any time unexpectedly, or do we want a tenuous ally who will gradually come under our thumb with time?"
>>25003779Then lets follow the standard protocol for inviting someone over. Maybe give him a personal look at the chattel we are selling.
>>25003779Excellent, send off a message in the usual method to Earl Blackford congenially inviting him to visit us at his earliest convenience to join us for tea and to discuss some business. Make sure to use proper stationary and ensure that the Castle is in a proper state to receive a guest of his stature.
>>25003802Definitely bring him under with time. in the mean time though. Keep a close eye on him.
>>25003802Tenuous ally, I think.And have we spoken with the other children yet?
>>25003802If those are our options, I'd go for long term control.We just won't let him free with our financial accounts or let him wander about unrestricted until he is sufficiently Dominated.Basically, house-arrest and slow Domination.
>>25003802Keep an eye on him and take our time. Treat our possessions well, do not hurt them frivolously, use pain and punishment as a method to correct unruly behavior and provide some level of reward should they serve us willingly and ably. They are beneath us just like a mutt is beneath a mere human, but even a dog is rewarded when it is good.
>>25003802Been watching this quest with interest, haven't really caught one in time to participate till now though.If we wait and work on him, there is a chance that somehow he is clued into our efforts, but a higher chance of domination success in the long run. If we act now, we will have him by surprise, with a chance he can oppose the domination however.
>>25003813>>25003845You use your good calligraphy set and take the time to personally write a missive to Earl Blackford; he is five generations of blood closer to the Source than you, so even a well-placed Lady such as you must treat him with deference and respect. Though his name is somewhat worsened by the Orlov line associated, his purity of blood cannot be denied. Therefore, you take the time to form each letter perfectly with all the three centuries of skill you possess, and seal it in blood from the servant who will carry it to him. If he chooses, he may take that member of your household staff for his own; hopefully you will not be so unlucky, however.> Roll Acumen for how well you present yourself to the Earl Blackford.
Rolled 92>>25004071Make sure we have a properly fancy hat, gloves, dress, shoes, that everything is immaculate and in proper condition. We must look every inch a proper lady.And our servants, make sure they're also properly dressed, especially the new hires. That the merchandise is fed, cleaned, and in proper showroom condition, can't forget the little details.
Rolled 92>>25004071Hope we make a good impression. We want a reasonable price for our slaves.
Rolled 23>>25004121>>25004104Well fuck. We just committed a warcrime of social faux pas.
Rolled 47>>25004071Make a second letter, send it on a separate course, accidents happen. No reason not to take the effort to ensure proper delivery
Rolled 51>>25004104>>25004121Ouch! Well, we're not getting that servant back and he'll probably charge us to take them.We'll find another buyer if we need to.
Rolled 20>>25004121>>25004104This is very bad. I can deal with setbacks, but this may make us look positively uncultured.
>>25004104A good question: How will we present ourselves to the Earl Blackford?> Our choices:> Sweet and Childlike> Dark and Elegant (Currently Worn)> Wise and Learned> Occult and Mysterious> Other?
>>25004194>Sweet and ChildlikeI happen to enjoy the irony of the outfit considering what we are.
>>25004194>Sweet and ChildlikeOur letter was obviously that of a deranged vampire. We should act the mind addled part.
>>25004188It's not like we suddenly forgot 350 years of social etiquette.A bad result probably means he's just in a bad mood and isn't receptive to our offer.
Rolled 96>>25004104>>25004121Oh dear. I believe we managed to confuse one of our household staff with one of the new slaves, and the slave is now taking the opportunity to bolt into the streets of shadescast. > Roll Celerity to catch the escapee before he gets away!> Roll in this post is the slave's roll.
>>25004194>Sweet and ChildlikeBeing a cutie is always fun~!
>>25004194Dark and Elegant, it plays to our style, maybe if he see's us fail at emulating that he'll be more amused than anything.
Rolled 23>>25004248Do we even stand a chance of catching him? I think so, the slave probably is missing a leg with that roll.
>>25004194>Sweet and ChildlikeSeems to fit the persona we've created.
Rolled 68>>25004248Well, that's a failure. This is his second opposed roll if Isabella also fails.
>>25004272Huh, we had a legit success after modifiers, right?
>>25004272The slave runs directly into a passing vampire and they both go down in a pile of tangled limbs. You sieze him bodily and manage to drag him back to the castle before anyone notices, flushing pale red from embarrassment. > Roll Acumen to see if you can find the letter which was discarded in the commotion.
>>25004272Good job namefag. We dodged a bullet.>>25004277Since we left the others stored in the dungeon, I assume it was one of the 4 we spoke to. Who?We will need to make an example. Seriously, giving us shit like this on the first day?
Rolled 63>>25004325If we don't find it, we can just write a new one. It's not like it contained sensitive information.
Rolled 6>>25004325whoops terribly sorry about that, extra beatings for hi today hehe.
>>25004332That was the thug. (Whose name was Slab, which you changed to Bradley.)You have no idea what possessed you to make you think that giving him the letter was a good idea.
Rolled 13>>25004373>>25004387I am born of fail.Was the vampire someone important? Probably not since they got knocked over by a human slave.Should the slave be punished? I think so. He might be a nice snack.Deleting my shame
we never actually talked to slab did we?
so basically we just had a guy who knew nothing wandering around and handed him a letter and let him go free.I think that was our fault.
Rolled 27>>25004325It ought not be that difficult to find. Random note, since this is a roll under system similar to DH, in DH they place rolling under the base stat, a bonus of +0 at the difficulty of Challenging, and most Ordinary and Routine tasks are at +10 to +20, with other bonuses coming from skills and the like.You may want to consider for most tasks applying a bonus to our stat if the task isn't overly difficult from that, and additional bonuses if we're skilled in said task or have resources that make it easier like a library for research or a weapon for fighting.
>>25004386I think he needs a more demeaning name now, or a round of behavior modification for failing our "test."
>>25004426Yet he was still disobedient to us and our wishes, that's worthy of some level of punishment if simply to educate the sod.
>>25004360You find the letter intact, and it turns out that you simply handed it to the wrong person; the servant who should have taken it was standing right next to "Slab." Of course, they would never dream of correcting your mistake...This is the problem with dominated servants.
>>25004386>You have no idea what possessed you to make you think that giving him the letter was a good idea.I assume we just handed it to the closest minion without looking to check who it was.Our house staff have long since been utterly Dominated, I guess we just got used to that.We will have to make sure not to do that again.Send Bradley to the Doll House for punishment.
>>25004448Yes, situational modifiers exist and apply.
>>25004474We saw what they did to the Hunter, I still have hopes to make use of the musclebound idiot, and losing all of his teeth and becoming a scarred and broken mess is not conducive towards that.Punishment is in order, pain and education, but the Doll House may render him hard to utilize later.
>>25004474I agree, just a short session though. He misbehaved, he gets punished... but its his first infraction.
>>25004414He was a terrible conversationalist. He's about as bright as a box of rocks and twice as hard to talk to. Tough, though.
>>25004504The Dolls obey our orders.Just tell them we want him in working order once they have finished playing.
>>25004504The dolls are very good at torture. You had no need for the Hunter to be useful to you afterwards; with Slab they can be instructed to be more careful.
>>25004538I'm going to second this
>>25004546Okay then. First we talk to Bradley, tell him in no uncertain terms that we will not allow for our property to act out in such a way and that he ought to reflect on his behavior and what it brought him while he is suffering from the Dolls' careful ministrations. Remind him that this is entirely his own fault and he ought to learn from this experience in order to better serve us in the future.
>>25004589>>25004517>>25004474>>25004465>>25004464"Bradley, Bradley, Bradley."You shake your head at the hulking brute."Where exactly did you think you were going to go?"You sigh."Such stupidity will not be tolerated; if you cannot serve me, then you will make a good toy for my dolls."Their porcelain hands reach around from behind him and seize him securely."Do try not to break him."He doesn't scream as he's carried away. He'll learn to soon enough.You hand the letter to a servant, and check its identity this time. Yes, one of your dominated staff. For sure, this time. > Roll Acumen for your second try.
While we're on the subject of our Dolls.Can we talk about the Armour-Doll idea?We were already planning to create hoboflesh beasts. I say we combine this with our Doll ritual and create Armour-Dolls.Essentially, flesh beasts in an armour shell.They have a few advantages~~They look swank and will make a stylish Honour-Guard if we go out in Shadescast.~They will make fine decoration placed in our castle halls. (Castle likes nice decorations)~They will allow us to be surrounded by guards, even with Human guests, without breaking cover.~If we make them right, armoured juggernauts could kick some serious ass.
Rolled 60>>25004696Right, second try, let's not fuck this one up. We're an elegant noble vampire, we ought to act like one.
Rolled 13>>25004696Do be quick about it.
Rolled 86>>25004696Let's see if we can get it right this time.
Rolled 10>>25004696Rolling acumen, I mean really what are the chances it is another slave/prisoner?
>>25004728Noble, haughty, and successful, I like it.
>>25004727The servant leaves, and returns bearing a letter in reply. You cut the black ribbon with one fingernail, and read the missive.My Dearest Isabella Markova:I would be delighted to discuss such an arrangement with you within the coming hours. I will be arriving in approximately thirty minutes. I do hope all has been arranged.- Earl Blackford, Seventh of the Line of Orlov.It's somewhat blunt and imposing, but the fact that your servant is bearing the letter suggests that he is certainly willing to consider the bargain. What, if anything, will you do to prepare?
>>25004697I don't see any reason not to. Unless anyone has any objections we can do that after we get our negotiations over with. Also can we make anything else besides dolls? Animals maybe?
>>25004816Check the servant for mental tampering (Other than our own).Sort the hoboflesh into For Sale, and Keeping.Put on our prettiest dress, and have the dolls prepare some tea and pastries. Blood filled jam tarts ofcourse.
>>25004816Prepare everything. Make sure none of the damage the Hunter did can be seen by him. Have our stock ready for inspection as well.
>>25004826You have experience in shaping flesh to your will, and the blood magic to be successful at it. Experimentation might allow you to create any number of horrors.
>>25004844>>25004858A fusion of these, I think.
>>25004697And so the age old debated begins anew: Armored dolls or toy soldiers? We'll need to harvest more base materials either way.
>>25004816Have the Servants put the slaves in proper condition, make sure they are reasonably clean and able to be shown. We don't want them to look dirty, overly malnourished, or otherwise in poor health, it's not a good sign for a purchasing. Make sure where we plan on receiving Earl Blackford is nearby the cells for the ones we intend to sell. We don't want to make him take an overly long walk.Have tea prepared as well as biscuits, pastries, cookies, and the like all ready. As funny as it would be we shouldn't pull the super creepy doll tea party on him, it's a business meeting.Make sure we're fastidiously clean, wearing a lovely outfit, that it all matches and that we have our most charming smile ready.
>>25004898Don't forget the blood red bow for our hair. It completes the look.
>>25004816Make sure our parlour is ready to receive guests. Ensure the slaves are reasonably presentable.Have tea prepared. (the special tea, you know the one)
>>25004919Good sir, we wear a fascinator not a bow, fascinators are both more adorable and more elegant.>>25004942The Assam blend with hints of vanilla and caramel?
>>25004948>fascinatorI have learned a new word today, and yes, they are quite adorable.
>>25004898You arrange everything carefully; the merchandise is groomed and clothed, the kitchen staff are at the top of their game, and the best silver tea service has been prepared for your guest.You yourself carefully select a cherry-red dress edged with black lace, and a matching black fascinator, which you affix a small red bow to, matching the red ribbons of the glossy flats that adorn your stockinged feet. Black opera gloves add a touch of class to the childlike outfit- after all, it won't do to have the Earl not take you seriously. All is in readiness. The earl knocks on the Shadescast gate.> How do you greet him?
>>25005082With deference and elegance, but don't overdo it.Being too subservient will lose us respect if he thinks we can be pushed around like the little girl we appear to be.
>>25005082Stand in front of the door, have it open by itself and welcome him with a curtsy as we are flanked by a few bowing servants."It truly is a pleasure to see you once again Earl Blackford. It has been too long." Invite him in, not in the true invitation sense, but in the standard method of temporarily relaxing the threshold a little bit that we normally adhere to.After he comes in stand on our tippie toes, and have him lean down a bit so we can give him a friendly peck on each cheek."Shall we adjourn to the sitting room, there is some truly lovely tea awaiting us."Act like an adorable little girl.
>>25005082Have the Butler open the door and greet him.Once his coat has been taken, have him escorted him to parlour, where we will greet him."Earl Blackford. It is a pleasure to have you in my home. Would you like to sit down and enjoy my humble offerings *gesture to the tea, biscuits and the cute maid with bare wrists* before we get to business?"
>>25005082Let the servants welcome him and have them escort him to you, have tea and a light snack available for him if he so pleases.
>>25005232>>25005192I've already put in my suggestion, but I'm not sure that'd work.There's a threshold in place, and I think we ought to personally relax it for the stay of his visit instead of him just walking in when a mere butler or servant welcomes him.
>>25005232Do we know a protocol for greeting a generations apart elder?
>>25005281Well we're already bending it by inviting him instead of visiting him, but that's because we're a known eccentric recluse. I'm guessing that being an eccentric recluse gives us some level of leeway in etiquette, which is awesome.
>>25005320Very much so, but if there is a specific phrase or secret handshake that we could use to impress him. That we go a way to offsetting any other breaches of protocol.
>>25005188You greet the Earl directly, opening the door with the lightest touch of your power and curtseying in unison with your servant's bows as he steps within your hall, seemingly entirely unheeding of the threshold. An alarming thing, as this castle has been inhabited continually for centuries; his being able to ignore or endure its threshold speaks to his power. "Thank you for coming, Earl Blackford. The goods are prepared for your inspection. Would you like to partake of my kitchens before you view them, or would you prefer to see the merchandise first?"He smiles, revealing pointed fangs he does not bother to hide. A sign of arrogance; that, or he does not visit the outside world much anymore. "I would prefer to see the merchandise first, Lady Isabella. Then we may sit down to tea to discuss terms."You nod, and escort him to the slaves, which he examines in detail, asking questions here and there. After what seems like quite a long time, he finally turns to you."Hm. They're strong enough. Good chattel. But most of them don't have two thoughts in their head to rub together. I'll grant there's enough of them to be worth something to me, but it'll take time to sell off this many, and none of them are what I would call 'specialty product.' What do you desire in trade for them?"He pours himself some of your tea, waving away the servant who attempts to pour it for him, and sips it as he waits for your reply. > How much do you want? Once you decide, roll Acumen to see how much of it you can get...> Session winding down, will end in about half an hour. Speed would be nice.

>>25005485The main thing I want from this is money, currency usable in Mark and Victoria so we may make investments there and improve our holdings. As for how much we want, I want enough to get a controlling interest in the airship yards, more if possible. I'm not really aware of the prices of slaves compared to the stock prices of airship yards and trading centers.
Rolled 43>>25005485Enough to establish myself as a minor partner in the airship business. I would take payment in shares of a particular company if it's more convenient for you.If he goes for this, awesome the less competition the better. Time to see if we can pull it off.
Rolled 90>>25005485>They're strong enough. Good chattel. But most of them don't have two thoughts in their head to rub together."Indeed, my current supply would fall under the category 'unskilled labour'.I would like simple currency for them if that is acceptable. Payment in coins.Earl Blackford, as you know, I am somewhat of a recluse. As such, I lack many business contacts outside of my field of expertess.Would you know someone - perhaps a mine owner or such - that would desire a large amount of unskilled labour?"
>>25005624>>25005627>Enough to establish myself as a minor partner in the airship business. I would take payment in shares of a particular companyNo! Don't tell people about our future plans!He doesn't need to know that. Do you want a rival to poach our shipyard?
>>25005684I'm >>25005624 and I didn't mean for that to be spoken, just telling Alucard that I wanted funds, for Blackford we tell him we have a need for liquid funds for projects of our own or something along those lines.
>>25005624This seems the most unoffensive so far. Any objections to it? >>25005638Do we want to ask about business contacts he could put us in contact with?
>>25005684Why would he care about our plans, if he was concerned he could walk in and kill us and we would be helpless to stop it. More likely, he would dominate us and that's the ends of that. A bit of frankness with him could ease relations, it's probably nice to know someone doesn't plan on stabbing you in the back immediately or in the near future.
>>25005722Yes, just ask for payment in currency (don't object to strongly if he wants to pay in something else) and ask if he knows anyone that wants unskilled labour.
>>25005759Well right now we'd probably have a not completely terrible shot at influencing him, still a horrible idea, but he is inside a strong threshold, he's still capable, but he's nowhere near his strongest. But if he did want to fuck us over he could at any time.
>>25005759>Why would he care about our plans,I doubt he does. That doesn't mean he won't tell anyone if they ask.If it's something we just bring up in casual conversation, he's not going to consider it a secret worth guarding.We know we have an enemy, it's a safe bet they'll enquire about our business dealings.
Rolled 6>>25005840ACUMEN GET!
Rolled 89>>25005840Hopefully we can get a fair deal and a good contact for future sales.
>>25005862Well, there you have it.
Rolled 42>>25005862Let's see how sharp the Earl is.
>>25005905So we win ALL THE THINGS right?
>>25005905Sharp as a knife, but our guile could cut diamonds.
>>25005905I think he might have just left without his shirt.Or the slaves. He just gave us his money.
>>25005905Over tea, you hammer out a deal, and Blackford seems to have taken quite a shine to a deliberately placed serving girl. You take advantage of his distraction to better your terms, and Blackford ends up overpaying you by quite a large amount. You'd say you got about double what your slaves were worth.But the best part? It turns out he had an estate in Mark that was disrupted by the worker's strike, and you managed to convince him that it would be almost worthless soon and he had better trade it to you before the bottom fell out of it. > You lose 10 points of slaves> You gain 20 points of Holdings, 10 points of which is a shipyard in Mark.
>>25005983Best roll i ever made.
>>25005983Hell fuckin' yeah!
>>25005983Excellent, we're just that good.Enjoy his company some more, do not simply rush him out of our home like some commoner who finished with business. Perhaps adjourn to a study for the rest of our time. Smoke some nice tobacco if he has such a habit. When he wishes to leave escort him to the door and be sure to kiss him on the cheeks before we go to celebrate our business relationship and friendship, or something like that. Mainly it'll just be adorable because he'll have to lean down.
>>25005983Jackpot!Did we get a contact for future sales? A regular income for our projects would be good.Thank him for his generous custom. Ask where he would like the slaves delivered and work out any other details of the trade we need to.
>>25006038We just received a fucking shipyard, yea i THINK we have contacts now.
>>25005983Holdings in an actual yard. Change of plans, visit asap, we'll also need to locate a manager that can turn the yard around.First walk out the Earl personally.This is a very providential turn of events, still move slowly, immortality has it's perks,we can take time to position ourselves.
>>25005983And we'll end the thread there. There may or may not be a session tomorrow, but it's fairly clear that our next order of business is going to be inspecting our new shipyards. Feel free to continue discussion, but I won't be on for at least 8 hours or so. I need my sleep. (Also, I have an RL game tomorrow that takes precedence, so I may not have time to host. As always, watch my twitter if you want to know about new threads.)
>>25006056Thanks for running, enjoying an intellectual quest with smar/tg/uys.
>>25006056Oh yes, just for repetition's sake: My twitter is @Wergeldt.
>>25006056There's an important question that needs to be answered. Did we make Blackford lean down so we could properly bid him goodbye? Does he think we're utterly adorable? Because we're pretty damn adorable.Also, our Hunger is probably getting reasonably bad at this point, we might want to casually snack on some Servant before we go out. We want a full blood pool so we can use Blood Magic.
>>25006181We are the adorablest.
>>25008277The adorablest little flesh twisting monster?
>>25009637You know it. The flesh twisting just makes us cuter. And if anyone thinks they're more adorable than us we can make them into a doll as punishment. We're the most adorable god damnit. Though if we didn't maintain a look of childlike innocence while we were twisting flesh or torturing the useless we wouldn't be as cute as we are. It's an important trick to have.We even wear fascinators, opera gloves, stockings, and properly fancy dresses. We're adorable and fancy.
