Michael enters the room. "Good morning, Shadow." He waves a hand.The machinery assembles itself around your cage. It forms a square U-shape around your head. The inside is bristling with rods and diodes and sharp sparking parts. You draw yourself away from the bars, glaring at the grey-green steel."This," Michael says, knocking the metal, "is adamantium, internally lined with an aluminum-copper alloy of my own design meant to channel away any offending magic." He grins, then leans casually on the machine. His bad arm dangles like a limp fish. "But I brought something better, today." He turns. "Get in here!"If you had a throat, you'd gulp hard. He's called in extra help. But who could possibly help him?Ila walks in through the door. Her eyes widen when she sees you sitting in the cage."You know, I was thinking," Michael says. "I've been fighting fire with water for a hundred years. Why not try some fire on for size?" He runs a finger down Ila's shoulder, letting it linger. She either knows better, or is still too stunned to react to his touch. "I think I'm going to enjoy this.">con't"Now. My lovely little Ila. Sit right there."Ila doesn't move."SIT!" Michael screams.She sits.>con't
I'm not particularly good at it, but drawing Mr. Crazy's face is fun.

Rolled 44, 43, 84, 81, 7 = 259>>25329092why is he so killable
"Place your hand on the lever. Your fingers in the appropriate slots. Gather plain shadow mana. The machine does the heavy lifting. Begin on my command." Michael busies himself adjusting parts of the machine. "...alright. Throw the switch."Ila throws the switch. Clouds of shadow mana gather about her hand. But it's small. It slithers through the machine at a snail's pace."Channel like you mean it."The flow increases slightly."I said channel.""I am, Highest."Michael backhands her. She's nearly knocked from her seat, but she uses the handle to hang on. "MORE, YOU IDIOTIC BITCH!"Tears are leaking down Ila's face. Her hand trembles on the switch.You know how hard it is for her to resist commands. In fact, it's impossible for her to hang on forever.But she's trying.What do you do?>just do as he says. Don't provoke him. I can take it.>hold on, Ila. Don't give in.>write-in>some other strategy
Some people have mentioned possibly doing our Servant thing with Ila once we get a chance.I have to say that sounds like a good idea. Not something we can do right now, but it'd be good to keep in mind when we escape with her in tow and beat the shit out of Michael.
>>25329092Same thing as yesterday, but our distraction will be our wisp-bro. Ask Ila to hide wisp-bro.
>>25329134Personally I just imagine him as a blonde Two-Face wannabe.He's got the split personality and everything.
>>25329134just reverse the image, its his left side thats all messed up but good job anyway
>>25329153>just do as he says. Don't provoke him. I can take it.
>>25329134>Michael's face when
I really, really, really want to bust out of this cage. Right now.
>>25329160Wisp bro has not returned from his assigned mission to inform Flint of your current status.
>>25329153>just do as he says. Don't provoke him. I can take it.It's shadow mana, hell it might be good for us.
>>25329160I like this. Do it.
>>25329153<What's the matter, Michael? Too scared to do things yourself? Too weak? Must you use a helpless woman that you've threatened into submission to do your dirty work?>Fuck yeah, I'm going to taunt him, I don't give a shit.
>>25329190Yeah it's kinda strange that he doesn't realize that. Even the hostile shadow magic the demon lord used rolled right off of us. Let's try and take it.
Rolled 29>>25329153>just do as he says. Don't provoke him. I can take it.I have seem what he is like. i refuse to let you do anything that would cause him to be even worse to you than he already has. >>25329194we sent wispbro to find flint
>>25329153<Channel me your energies. This one violates all that is Justice and I wish to provide him the reckoning he so greatly deserves. Remember the fight with the Demon...>
>>25329165>>25329180GET OUT OF MY HEAD.
>>25329202Do it. Maybe then we can blow his ass up again!
>>25329153>>just do as the little cripple saysI think we should provoke him make him angry and stupid so he makes a mistake.
>>25329153She has to do it, I don't think we want her to suffer. Lets take the hit from him and talk with her in brainchat. Maybe she can get something out of him.
>>25329153Impress her with our resistance last time. We're not dodging this bullet unfortunatly, so we'll need to make sure he keeps using her instead of some other shadow mage with no liking of us.
>>25329153>just do as he says. Don't provoke him. I can take it.Wait, aren't we basically immune to shadow? Encourage her to pour as much power as possible into the machine and consume it as it hits us. We will grow stronger and destroy the cage.
>berserk is always an option
anyway now that I'm slightly calm(hah, no I'm not)>>25329153>don't worry Ila I will be fine.
What's the status on breaking out of the cage again? 8 to go?
>>25329209But I am you.You really need to get that schizophrenia treated some time.
>>25329153<oh h-hi Micheal-sensai>
>>25329233Hunger might enjoy eating that shadow stuff. We're also extremely resistant to our own element.
>>25329233It's designed to make fire magic, which we are somewhat weak to.
>>25329153can we pretend to be in more pain than we were when he was using his own magic on us unless it actualy does hurt more
>>25329207>>25329234And let him know that we know each other? Are you dense? Think of the horrible thing he will do to her just to hurt us.
>>25329276Ever heard of the saying "Fight fire with fire"? So fighting us like that obviously means shadow. Insert personal insult and pre-emptive counter-riposte.
Rolled 6>>25329153>just do as he says. Don't provoke him. I can take it.thank you Ila. i know how hard this is for you. but do not make it harder for yourself on my accounti just realized something. right now i think Ila is the only character besides the sage that has sacrificed for us without asking. she is putting herself through pain to lessen our own. we do this like breathing, our suffering doesnt matter it seems. but only the sage has sacrificed anything but dignaty and truth for us.
>>25329276he was refering to "fight fire with fire" not actual fire
>>25329306There are only two people we know to have Telepathy, us and Fang. People without telepathy can't pick it up.
>>25329306Though speech you dum-dum. Telepathy.
>>25329306We can use telepathy so that only she can hear.
I still think we might be the shard of wrath and haven't awakened our nature yet, at least not completely. Granted, there isn't that much evidence to support this theory, but there is some, at least in my mind. First, there's the fact that we have the berserk ability, which is something that is typically associated anger. There's also the humanity/temerity stats, which represent the two faces of wrath (burning, impassioned fury and cold, calculated hatred). But what struck as the most telling was the burst of anger in Palthair after Magcock teleported away.I mean, I'm probably wrong but hey, I figure it's better to kick in my two cents and actually contribute a new take on things.
>>25329310Yes, i realized that right after I posted it.I was thinking about our fire weakness.also, I need sleep.
>>25329320Nope. We've talked to others in our party with it before. More than impressions, even.
I would suggest that when Ila hits us with the shadow-powered magic from the machine, we should act like we are profoundly hurt by it. You know, scream in pain, cry for mercy, etc.If Michael thinks we've been beaten, perhaps we can take him by surprise.
<Just do as he says, Ila.>She looks up. The flow of mana increases. Her will to fight the order is fading rapidly.<I'm Shadow. You won't hurt me.>Ila sets herself and shoves mana into the contacts. Purple shadow twists through the diodes. Power begins to spin on the edge of the needles.<When the time comes...his comeuppance will be swift. It will be brutal. And it will be without mercy.> You smile. <Until then, endure.>Michael strokes Ila's shoulder as she puts real effort into the task. "That's it...almost there. Good girl." He lays his own hand on the other side of the machine. Light energy forms on the diodes opposite hers. "On my count of three, put everything you have into it," Michael says, "or I'll finish the job I started when I ripped your soul out of this shell you call a body. Is that understood?""Yes, Highest," Ila says."1. 2. 3."Magic flares.What do you do?>take the hit and endure>use Hunger to eat the incoming magic>attempt to repel the blow with Isolation>some other strategy
>>25329349Anybody can hear telepathy directed at them, but they can't respond with telepathy. They have to respond verbally.
>>25329320>>25329349Wait, nevermind. Completely misread what you said.
>>25329333I honestly think we are the shard of morality more than something we haven't realy done.
Rolled 93, 92, 37, 22, 47 = 291>>25329356eat it, we hungry
>>25329356>attempt to repel the blow with IsolationIsolation was just strengthened and Hunger is probably slightly weak from yesterday.
>>25329356>attempt to repel the blow with IsolationHad not thought of that, lets give it a shot. It might damage the cage.
>>25329356Is he trying to feed us I wonder?
>>25329356>use Hunger to eat the incoming magic<"THANKS FOR THE MEAL.">
>>25329356Let's give Isolation a shot.
>>25329384Nah, we repaired hunger to the level it was at yesterday.
>>25329356HE'S THE ONE THAT KNOWS HOW SOUL RIPPING WORKS! I'M EXCITED AND THRILLED TO KILL HIM!Use Hunger.
>>25329387Wait, is he trying to get us to EAT Ila?
>>25329356.. oh hey theres an idea. Use both. Isolation on the Light Magic, Hunger on the shadow magic.
>>25329399Aaah, but we have to torture him into giving Ila her soul back first. Or maybe it will just return once we kill him. Who knows.
>>25329356>>use Hunger to eat the incoming magicDo it.
>>25329403No? At least if that is what's going on I haven't read it.
>>25329356Hunger all the way!
>>25329415her soul is trapped in a jar. presumbly we have to break the jar.
>>25329356Eat the incoming magic, but do as >>25329355suggest.Act like we're in terrible pain.

Rolled 59>>25329356>attempt to repel the blow with Isolationwe save hunger for now. we will need it. i suspect this will not be the only time tries something today. and i want to see if we can hunger powered consume someone. Daraxis made a comment about taking knowledge. i want to take everything this guy has if possible
>>25329412This is a fantastic idea. Use Isolation's increased power to cover for Hunger a little bit, too.
>>25329356Hes expecting hunger thats why he brought his special magic syphon adamantium thing lets hit him with isolation
>>25329434That sounds like a good idea.
>>25329415Its not a bad idea but it could work.
>>25329355>>25329434This, even as we try to use hunger.

Rolled 24>>25329505OH BOY WITH HOPE WE HAD
Hi, SM. Long time reader, first time poster. Just want to say I've been loving the quest, and don't worry about the people who've had a few complaints in the last few threads. You're an awesome GM, you're seriously one of the best on /tg right now. This quest is going to become so awesome once we get out of here and CONSUME this monster of an angel. Keep up the good work, and I for one can't wait until we get back to the rest of the group.Also, guys, just a reminder that this quest now has its own page on TvTropes! Check it out!And finally, vote 3. We're going to kill this son of a bitch if it's the last thing we do, but first things first, we protect Ila too.
>>25329510Triple check my count for me, it was really close.
Rolled 22>>25329505GIVE AND TAKE, BITCH
Rolled 27>>25329505Maybe this roll won't fail as usual.
Rolled 79>>25329505rolling a second time just because.
Rolled 51>>25329505come on 100
>>25329534>Also, guys, just a reminder that this quest now has its own page on TvTropes! Check it out!
>>25329513>>25329523Hmmm... not bad. Isolation shard probably gets a bonus from being supercharged. Hunger shard is probably a flat role.
>>25329535>Tripleyou sly dog you
>>25329524I don't believe light resistance is available at this point.Considering light is our opposed element, I'd assume that's the last resistance available, if at all.
>>25329513>>25329518>>25329523The dice can go FUCK THEMSELVES.
>>25329564well we just had a nat 100, we can't get them all the time.
>>25329552Le /tg/ culture XD
>>25329564Hopefully all our planning is background bonuses, we also didn't get any crit fails or supercrit fails. So there's that.
>>25329534I really appreciate that. Thank you.I think /tg/ hates TV Tropes, though.>>25329513>>25329518>>25329523Meh.Too bad for the dice-gods you had a kick-ass plan.
>>25329534I like how the tvtropes page says Shadow seems to identify as male when he said that he doesn't want to identify with either gender because the whole concept has caused him nothing but grief.
>>25329564Meh. Two out of three are above average. Statistically, we couldn't hope for much better.
>>25329576>>25329577All of my yes.
>>25329577so my plan gave us enough of a bonus to do well even with miocre rolls?woo I contributed!
>>25329577>Too bad for the dice-gods you had a kick-ass plan.I hope that isn't sarcasm! :D
Rolled 87>>25329563It is, check again the shadow aura tree.
mediocre... somehow I lost half that word.
>>25329574This isn't a culture thing. This is a "TV Tropes is gay" thing. It would be culture if we were defending elf slave wat do threads.
>>25329577>I think /tg/ hates TV Tropes, though.Most of 4chan hates TV Tropes from what I've seen. As someone who used to regularly edit the site, I understand perfectly why.
>>25329577>Too bad for the dice-gods you had a kick-ass plan.God bless circumstance bonuses.
my guess is light resistence is after Eclipse.
>>25329610That's LightNING resistance, bro.
>>25329577DON'T FORGET YOUR SARCASM BRACKETS!
>>25329610LightNING resistance. Important difference.
Rolled 13>>25329623Oh a shit you are right my mistake.
>>25329630I kinda want to force that picture into Hyperion's mind should we ever find him.
Rolled 27>>25329626In the beginging it was good and well love by everyone. But then all the "this troper" crap became rampant and it never recover from the damage it did to its reputation.
Shadow erupts from one end of the cage. It just shoves you over more than anything - but it serves a purpose. To put you in prime position for the Light.The light reaches you. You see Michael's face bend in concentration. Searing fingers of light dive into your skin, hunting for your power.This time, you're ready.-EAT!-You envelope the Shadow. You feel power returning to you. Ila seems to notice. She hunches low, then pours more into her effort. Michael's too busy concentrating to care. You devour her mana like a snack.Your magic floods back to you. The shadow power you're eating is counteracting the cage's suppression. It's damaged, too - the combined force is too much for it to handle.The Isolation shard hums. No intrusion. No nothing.Alone.A green wave of energy like frozen ice grabs onto the fingers and shoves them back to the outside of the cage. There, they stay, battling for dominance.What do you do?>This is the chance you've been waiting for. Use shadow assault!>No, shadow beam!>Berserk, activate!>some other strategy
>Nightflare the cage.
>>25329682Nightblaze.10 mana Then rip Michael's arms off.
>>25329682>No, shadow beam!We bought it for a reason, and it does mroe damage.
>>25329682Shadow Beam, aimed through the cage and at Michael, considering how accurate it is supposed to be.
>>25329704nightblaze is too noticable.
Rolled 55, 58, 100, 79, 53 = 345>>25329682use nightblaze at max mp
>>25329682>The Isolation shard hums. No intrusion. No nothing.>Alone.Holy shit, do we have our own AT field generator now?Also, SHADOW ASSAULT, GO. We're far more specced towards physical attack, and I don't want to Berserk out with Ila in the room!
>>25329682NIGHTBLAZE MAXIMUM POWER
>>25329704>>25329707Actually yeah, changing my Shadow Beam vote to Nightblaze because it's reliable.
Rolled 36, 47, 61, 50, 17 = 211>>25329716at?
>>25329682Punch a hole in Mike, show him true loneliness with isolation.
>>25329716Shadow beam does more damage.The only advantage of assault is that it hits multiple targets. We only want Michael
>>25329682NIGHTOBRAZU! NIGHTBLAZE! NOW!
>>25329682Shadow beam fis bloody arm off
>>25329682>No, shadow beam!We don't want to accidentally shoot/dismember Ila. Fire the beam through the gap of broken bars we made earlier. If possible, right into Michael. If not, at the control panel.
>>25329712We can target the cage exclusively.
>>25329682Blaze it up!
Rolled 37>>25329682I want to say shadow beam, but we have to get the fuck out of this cage. nightflare the cage then go juggernaught on michael's two tone ass. but not beserk. we do not want to hurt Ila.
>>25329715Stop rolling 5 goddamn dice.You're wasting all the 100's.Yes, I believe probability works like this when it comes to dice, sue me.
Rolled 55Just saying, nightblaze might break her soul-sever spell as well. For better or worse.
>>25329735Ah, good point.
>>25329735It also cost less mana, but y'know.
Everyone, nuking every enchantment within 150 meters is NOT subtle.
>>25329682Nightblaze the cage and then break out and punch Mike in the dick.
>>25329682420 NIGHTBLAZE IT FAGGOT
>>25329763Seriously, might as well shoot out a flare giving away our position.
>>25329770BLAZE DA NIGHT ERRY DAY
>>25329763A minimum power Nightblaze is good enough. Besides, we're noping out of the tower immediately.
>>25329740>NIGHTOBRAZU!I wasn't even thinking about nightblaze. Makes sense.Max power is probably a good idea. But do you want to radiate it, or use the alternate, and focus it on the cage specifically?
>>25329772It isn't if we define it to one spell.
Rolled 82>>25329682the problem i have with shadow beam is it does not garentee us getting out of the cage. i want out.
>>25329772So uhWho doesn't know our position right now?I mean we're only sitting right in front of FUCKING MICHAEL here.
>>25329757I think breaking the Soul Sever is more of Purify's gig.
Rolled 47>>25329716Shadow beam could work better. Its single target and we are close range. Either that or nightblaze.
>>25329763Agreed. Nightflaring the cage is our best option
>>25329785>Focus on the cage and PUNCH MICHAEL'S DICK TO SMITHEREENS!
>>25329763>>25329770Nightflare. Use tha mana we're getting from Ila to break the cage.
>>25329785Yes, targeting the cage.
Rolled 100>>25329785nightblaze the cage specifically. I do not want to chance this thing surviving
>>25329785use it on the cage
>>25329785I'll take focus on d' cage
>>25329785Nightflare fucking everything in a 150 meter radius.
>>25329682MAXIMUM NIGHTBLAZED FOCUSED ON HIS ENCHANTED ANGEL SOUL
Rolled 25>>25329785Yes, focus it on the cage.
>>25329785Focus it on the cage and Michael, divided evenly. Shatter the cage and cut him off from his power for a moment.
>>25329682If we do nightblase can we keep it small enough that it only hits the cage and then immediately shadow beam him
>>25329763It's Michael's tower. The only enchantments you'll be breaking are his, and he'll be alerted no matter how we play this.As for detection spells, you can't detect something erasing you.
>>25329811I... .....fuck you
>>25329811If Shadow Master is kind enough, That ought to do it...
>>25329811The gods have spoken.
>>25329811SM, we have our answer. Also 100 fuck the hell yes.
>>25329811...Waster.>>25329785Definitely just the cage.
>>25329811STOP ROLLING for fuck's sake. Wasting these.
>>25329785Let's hit the cage with it.If we can dispel the light magic on it, we'll be able to Kool-Aid Man right through the bars and pull Michael's limbs off.
>>25329785I say focus on the cage. Flint said that that Erebus' more powerful servants had antimagic. So they'll know a huge wave is us.Then activate berserk.
>>25329811Ha, ha. I agree with this plan, but you should've probably spared that roll for when it was asked for!
>>25329811If only the roll had been called...
>>25329785EVERYTHINGWe want to get rid of as many wards around here so we can make a break for it ASAP.I mean christ we're only in Michael's sanctum here. Who knows what kind of shit he's got up here?We'd probably take out any alarms too, meaning we'd have more time to GTFO.
>>25329811Please. Pwetty pwease?With a chewwy on tawp?
>>25329832>expecting SM to accept a roll that isn't linked to a call for rolls just because it's a 100Get a load of this guy
>>25329811--------------------------------------------------------------Devil's choice:(1) Don't take this 100. Roll to blast away the cage. Considering it's weakened, you'll probably do fine.(2) Take the 100 and accidentally, as some people might say, do TOO well.
>>25329854There's an open window like, next to us. And our wisp was able to enter and exit through it.
>>25329839>>25329840The cage is already weak, if we hit Michael too he won't be able to immediately hit us with light magic.
>>25329871Fuck it. Do too well.
>>25329871>(2) Take the 100 and accidentally, as some people might say, do TOO well.

>>25329871it isn't possible to do too well. I choose 2. I hope michael gets ruined.

>>25329871If we take the 100, can we do a 150ft wide antimagic nuking?
>>25329871Gee, you're being real fuckin' subtle about which choice you want.

>>253299372we chose to focus on the cage so hopefully it'll just be that.

>>25329871Voting 2.I don't want to risk rolling a 1 later and staying trapped. As it is, the worst case scenario is that Michael is too strong to kill and we jump out the window and supersonic away.
>>25329871This is going to end in tears
>>25329947Well that's a pretty stupid assumption considering we already know her soul in locked up with the angels and her body is in front of us. Derp.
>>25329979>inb4 Michael is in personal possession of Ila's soul
>>25329871i say 1. there is to much magic near us we want to keep
>>253298712Steward wanted to see us get out of this situation and it's time to show him just what we can do.
Rolled 51>>253298711 we dont want to call to much attention
Rolled 69>>253298711. I don't want to ruin steward.
Don't take the 100. Too much juice, and we might bite off more than we can chew. Besides, the cage is weak as it is.1
>>25329988Kubo-tier would never forgive SM for that.
>>25329871god damn it, SM. If we pick 2, you better take the next 1 we roll that isn't linked. Anything else will lose a good chunk of the respect I had for you.

Everyone saying we're immediately running, we're tearing Mikey apart.
what if the doing too well involves breaking michael's hold on lla's soul?

>>25330044Then we grab her when we vamoose.
>>25330043In a very extreme sort of way.
>>25329871Are the other angels still in the room or did they leave after installing Michael's equipment?
>>25330043He is a powerful angel, you know. If we fight him, we need to do it quick and clean, before he knows what's happening
>>25330051The fucker wanted us to get out on our own. Well, we're getting out on our own.
>>25330059The text said they left.

>>25330051Steward is disposable. Dude showed up as an adversary, and as long as he's with us, we won't be able to eat any dynamos without him interfering.
>>25330044Then we murder his dumb ass.After we get the location of the body, of course...
>>25330061Like when he's distracted by the "impenetrable" cage dissolving in a wave of antimagic?Keep to his left.

>>25330043Well, considering we are probably going to nullify a large portion of the tower, we might as well attack Michael at least a little before we run.
>>25330029>god damn it, SM. If we pick 2, you better take the next 1 we roll that isn't linked. Anything else will lose a good chunk of the respect I had for you.This makes me sad, anon.I'll think of something to balance the scales.--------------------------------------------You've taken the 100.

all thats left if the story. Time to gnaw some fingernails.
>>25330106He's a dick.
>>25330080We're still going to let him feel the isolation shard to weaken him up for the follow up consume.
>>25330084>Dude showed up as an adversaryThe fuck you talking about? He's a potential ally that we're about to majorly piss off.
Rolled 12, 65, 12, 19, 6 = 114>>25330105no pls
Rolled 46>>25330102BLAZE IT UP, NIGGA
>>25330043And in doing so removing a highly polarizing and decisive figure from the oppositions organization. If Michael's crimes come to light it will be a serious blow to the Angels PR scheme, if he dies then we fucking martyr him.
>>25330084>Steward is disposable.I agree with this, but not for the reasons you state.He's disposable because he's a mass produced copy of the original Steward. Its why he's out here at all after all.
>>25330091We don't even know if there are any dwarves left.Being allied with a semi-functional machine race in a small canyon region is almost entirely worthless.
Rolled 99>>25330102HOLD ON TO YOUR BUTTS
>>25330117Most certainly, because that's going to weaken his ability to fight us a whole lot. Isolation shard will wreck his mangled mind.
>>25330126THIS so hard.We need Michael ALIVE so we can villainize him.
>>25330131wut? Are you stupid? Think on what you just said.
>>25330106Steward would have attacked us if we didn't give him the dynamo we rightly claimed from the mech we defeated.And he has never directly intervened on our behalf. For fuck's sake, even Auriel has been a better ally the Steward and she's a goddamn angel.
>>25330149Dude, fuck you.
>>25330131GIANT ROBOT-PILOTING MACHINE RACE.Might be worth it for a Stoneskin golem of our very own.
>>25330131an entire city of them with giant mechs
>>25330117No, magic (healing, I know but still) is his forte, I think is best if we fight him physically.
>>25330157Nope. We need him dead because he's a high potential threat to us and ours.
>>25330102420 BLAZE IT
>>25330118he wanted to see our capabilities and show we did
>>25330157leaving him alive is also stupid. he's a consumate liar and will do everything in his power to see that those rumors die.
>>25330149>that wasted rollTake the damn dice out already.
>>25330129Actually, if he can transmit his operating system equivalent back to base in its entirety, then you're right that what's with us is a disposable shell. Otherwise I disagree.
>>25330102For the love of all that is shadow, please don't immediately hulk out and kill Michael. Render him unconscious, dick punch him sure, but don't kill him. We need to prove he's a dick first.
>>25330149You are an asshole.
>>25330189I'm like 90% sure that he's been doing this on a regular basis.
>>25330174We already agreed on the isolation shard versus his tattered mind as a good idea. It's not magic so much as it is an incredible amount of projected feelings.
>>25330168Sorry, man, won't happen again.
>>25330126EXCELLENT POINT, but who would believe a shadow? What of a skeleton buried in a park, no one would believe it was an angel who murdered her.Using spirit magic to find out? Again, who'd believe something as twisted and evil as SPIRIT?
Rolled 53, 4, 80, 98, 37 = 272>>25330186shut it
>>25330119Don't pull a Bromont, wasting good rolls is a dick move.
>>25330102>This makes me sad, anon.Bleh, now I feel like a hypocrit. I was the one telling people to take responsibility for our decisions last thread and stop blaming you. Meh, at least the idiots get to see what their choices have wrought, now.
>>25330126Nope the less angels there are the better, plus this guy is their main healer is better if we took him out right now.
>>25330167He helped us twice today even though he wasnt supposed to
>>25330157see that is the smart, manipulative thing. we are not manipulative. never have been. he will die for his transgressions
>>25330199This! Also, knock Ila unconscious so she doesn't draw suspicion.
>>25330199Not really. Who would we prove it to?Nobody in this city is going to believe the word of a shadow over an angel. Let's just kill him and be done with it.
>>25330225This is the best argument for why he should die that I have seen.
>>25330199err how? We're a shadow elemental the entire nation of angels wants to kill.I see no way of proving his crimes that we can do. Plus he'd do everything in his power to sabotoge any investigation into it. Him dying and the proof coming out afterword would be enough for us.
Rolled 15, 52, 89, 49, 24 = 229>>25330214>Bromontis that what their calling it these days?
>>25330117Agreed.>>25330174We can use it after we melee by channeling it through our body.
>>25330225Just seems like less than the full measure of justice he deserves.
>>25330223>>25330167Yeah, and he has being testing us all this time after this he will be our ally, unlike before went he was merly an observer.
>>25330199It wouldn't do any good. He's been doing these things for centuries while building rapport with his allies.No amount of cute language is going to expose him and the evidence can be ignored or faulty, their justice system doesn't permit them to be wrong so there is no point in attempting that.
>>25330185Also whos going to believe us even if we show them the bodies
>>25330239On top of the fact that we just told Ila, who he has no doubt raped multiple times, that "his comeuppance will be swift. It will be brutal. And it will be without mercy."Keeping him alive is OOC.
>>25330261no. it is the full mesure of shadow justice. we spare only those that are redeamable. we do not torture. that is the path of wrath. nothing is gained by torture and effort is lost. justice demands a swift end. he is a lost cause. that is the worst insult that shadow can give
>>25330279Plus we need to kill him quickly so he cant order Ila to defend him.
>>25330263so? we tested the duke didnt we?
Also I want to see the look on Li Fang's face when he hears that we killed Michael.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9ehcpw_DpEThe power runs through you.Both shards vibrate with energy. They resonate with you, against each other - clashing - distinct. Discordant.For a moment, they play a tone of pure harmony.Nightblaze flares from you, coursing outward. It runs through the walls, the stone - even penetrating through to the adamantium frame that supports the delicate architecture of the inner city.The cage comes vanishes. The machine goes dark. Ila is thrown back across the floor. The walls crack.Michael tumbles to the floor, breathing heavily. The curse embedded in his skin begins to move. It crawls, slithers, as if it's alive.You feel a thousand eyes watching you from that dark magic.I TOLD YOU I WOULD SEE YOU AGAIN, LITTLE SHADOW.Before you can focus on Legion's voice, Steward appears in the corner. Green and brown magics crackle around his circuits. He raises an arm toward you, and you feel some sort of magic leave his back, speeding away through the air.He falls to pieces, and his core dies.Michael screams in agony. He rolls across the floor, knocking into a chair. The curse writhes faster. The nightblaze only lasted for a moment - his own magics are again fighting it. But it's a desperate struggle.Ila gets up on her feet. She looks at you. "I'm ordered to protect angels, Shadow!"The walls crack again, and this time, the floor shakes. The entire tower moves under your feet.What do you do?>HP: 28/52>mana: 20/20>consume Michael. Beat Legion to the punch.>bind Ila, then consume Michael>kill Michael>bind Ila, then kill Michael>grab Ila and get out>some other strategy
>>25330279I honestly want to think that guys a troll because no one can be stupid enough to believe that leaving their greatest healer alive who is also a torture fetishist rapist is a good idea at all or that Mr. Shadow would even consider it seeing as we've said we're going to end him when we can over the past 3 threads.

>>25330325bindIIa, then use isolation on michael and consume
And this is really funny.I wanted to suggest that we try to summon Legion purposefully and let it rampage in the tower
>>25330325Bind Ila, Cut Michael in half to make sure he can't resist, and then eat him.
>>25330391Ehhh, no. She's just a shadow mage. 5 mana bind should do it.
>>25330325>Before you can focus on Legion's voice, Steward appears in the corner. Green and brown magics crackle around his circuits. He raises an arm toward you, and you feel some sort of magic leave his back, speeding away through the air.Make sure to CONSUME Steward the instant we get the chance. We need to destroy the evidence that he was here - its what he would want.

>>25330397"This one is mine, Legion. But you can have all the rest."Release him.
>>25330404Shadow resists spirit second hardest.
>>25330325Just fucking CONSUME this nigga already. He's got to go.Ila probably can't hurt us all that much, and once Michael is done for, she won't have to protect him.
>>25330407We can just carry his pieces inside us.
>>25330360>He falls to pieces, and his core dies.Not really. They can't make more of those cores, remember? He was making a last data transmission before that body was toast.
>>25330325>consume Michael. Beat Legion to the punch.No angel to save, Ila don't gotta do nuffin. Wipe that fucker out of existence.
>>25330415<Protect others from the collapsing tower! >THIS is a great idea! There are other Angels in the tower, she needs to protect them too!
>>25330435I like it. If she listens we don't have to bind.
>>25330425Oh, well shit.We need to find out how to make Cores, then. So Stewards can become truly disposable.
GUYS GUYS GUYS! EARTH CORE NOW AVAILABLE FOR EATING, LIMITED-TIME OFFER!... if we didn't destroy it in the process. Might've been a more spectacular show though, should we sprint as fast as possible to consume it, and only then bind Ila and do other actions?This is a very powerful demon we're facing. Screw the angel, nevermind Ila, this thing is the big bad of the Nether.
>>25330418>Letting the powerful demon loose in the all-you-can-eat angel buffetThis could work extremely well or incredibly badly
>>25330325After the deed is done we have to make sure and search steward's remains and pick up anything he might have wanted to keep. I'm sure we will meet him again.
>>25330325>bind Ila, then consume Michael7 mpuse isolation
>>25330325Bind Ila then Consume Micheal.after noms,<Direct me to where Your soul is kept, or I shall devour more angels>that should allow her to tell us. after all, she has been ordered to 'protect angels' and damage prevention is protecting them...LOOPHOLES HO!
>>25330450Indeed, that was part of why we wanted to ally with them, so we can study the cores. Hopefully they won't be too pissed about this.
>>25330415>>25330435Well, that's certainly worth a shot.
>>25330325>Ila gets up on her feet. She looks at you. "I'm ordered to protect angels, Shadow!"<There is nothing in your power that can stop this now, Ila.>CONSUME Michael.
>>25330325Grab Ila and get out. What would it mean for the angels if Michael turns into a demon? Answer: A complete shitstorm. With or without the evidence Auriel might find, the angels are going to be considerably weakened and embarrased that this happened. So yeah stop thinking with our stomach and use this to create havoc.
>>25330475see that only works if the angel programmer wasnt a dick. a loophole might just make her explode or something.
>>25330455>He falls to pieces, and his core dies.Why does /tg/ fail so hard at reading?
>>25330491because they only see that which they want to see...
>>25330382Ah, yes, excuse me my good sir.That's CONSUME, all caps. Hope that clears things up.--------------------------------------------------QM's note: 6 mp or more Bind will auto-bind Ila, as she's fighting against her orders at the momentVote 1:>bind Ila, drag her out of there. Let Legion consume Michael - he'll make a good distraction.Vote 2:>Bind Ila, CONSUME MichaelVote 3:>protect other angels from the collapsing tower! After Ila leaves, CONSUME
>>25330488His powers might win against the curse once again, like they did before. Now he was to fught an enemy within and an enemy outside.
>>25330475what makes you think they told her where her soul is being kept? I mean, c'mon, give the angels SOME credit.
>>25330491It's 6am but that's not an excuse at all.I just somehow read it as "his core", not "the core he is carrying".
>>253305203If it doesn't work, 2
>>25330520Let's give 3 a shot.
>>25330332I was not trolling, I was trying to find a reasonable way out of this mess that didn't involve the entire fucking ring city coming down on our ass. In case you forgot, asshole- Michael was the only enemy that was even aware of our sentience, something that will be made quite clear to Sandalphon and the rest of these bastards and exploited to further demonize us to the citizens of Venia. Secondly, what happened to JUSTICE? Killing him now is a temporary solution to a huge fucking problem that has wormed its way through the light's hierarchy. If there is no one here who could see any gain to his continued existence as a hostage, we've already lost any hope of saving the ring city from corruption.
>>253305202. Use isolation shard on Mike/Legion.
>>253305203. while she is leaving check steward. see if the earth core is still around
>>25330520>Vote 2>Bind Ila, CONSUME MichaelAfter this, I'm not letting Legion get this meal. Michael is ours, and ours only.
>>253305203! Holy shit my idea became one of the Sm options, not bad for my second thread.
>>253305202 fuck the angles
>>253305203Don't even bother to wait until she leaves though.
>>253305201 would be nice, but everyone seems to want 3.
>>25330520>2>Bind Ila, CONSUME MichaelWe need that xp
>>25330520>Vote 3:>protect other angels from the collapsing tower! After Ila leaves, CONSUMEI reeeaaally hope this works.
>>25330528oh, no, that's my bad, I forgot he had that one. still, I'd imagine he either didn't bring it, or it also got kebashed by the nightblaze.
>>253305202We need to have her direct us toward where they keep their "souls" so that we can use this distraction to free a shit ton of shadow mages.
>>25330520All the 2's.
>>25330520>protect other angels from the collapsing tower! After Ila leaves, CONSUMEI vote 3
>>253305201 - we need a distraction to get to the shadow Mage soul bank!
>>25330520More 2's for youse!
>>25330542There's no hope for saving the innocent if the war criminals in charge are still living. Things like Michael, real monsters. They need removal.Also, people do not change so easily. At least in this setting.
>>25330520Voting 3. If Ila refuses to leave, then go with option 2.
>>253305203We'd be no better than the angels if we just feed them to a demon.
>>25330579I'm just reasoning that his core would be much smaller than the huge war golem's and likely less resistant too.
>>253303253Also holy shit! IT WAS LEGION who originally cripple Michael!
--------------------------------------------------Cutting off votes.
>>25330325>>25330520As much as I would love to let Legion loose on the angels, just how many enslaved mages would the angels throw at it until it died? How many innocents would be killed by it? That is not Justice. Whatever we may be, whether or not we are Erebus or something else, we are Just.So, voting 2.
>>25330520Vote 3:>protect other angels from the collapsing tower! After Ila leaves, CONSUME
>>25330520Going for 2!
Given that Steward is conmected to Fang as far as the angels know we should probably consume his corpse.
>>25330520Its all about 3 niggas>>that delicious humanity maybe?
>>25330520all for 2.
>>25330527But Micheal is/was a dick. he most likely would constantly brag saying where they were and that she would never be allowed down there so long as he lived... yada yada...but either way, eat the living shit out of Micheal. Not cause of Legion, but cause he is a dick and deserves to provide something useful... that and if we let Legion have some fun, our apprentice might get caught in the crossfire...
>>25330622That's really naive logic. It's more of "we're punishing this guy because he's an unrepentant monster, personally."
>>25330634Remember the giant Nightblaze-like blast that we tried to absorb during that fight? Remember what happened? I think that was our first encounter with Legion.
20 2s so far17 3s so far.1 is irrelevant.
>>253305202, we can't let this chance slip away!!!CONSUME HIM
>>25330520>>25330658so yeah, 2 if it wasn't clear...
>>25330520legion distraction: not worth countingbind and consume: 17protect, consume: 16Someone double check that.

ya looks like Bind has it according to my count as well.

You know, when we bust out of here and start running, it might be worth it to find the center of the city and burn whatever XP we gain on the largest fucking nightflare we can manage.I'm sure we'd ruin countless valuable enchantments and effects.

You throw a Bind at Ila. Orange spirit ropes snap out around her, tying her up. She doesn't move - until your start toward Michael. The closer you get, the more she struggles. But it's an awkward struggle - her own muscles are fighting themselves.Either way, she's secure.You look down at Michael.You know what you have to do.You.Must.CONSUMEYou latch onto Michael's good half, and it isn't long until you meet Legion's curse.F̘͎̞̣̘e̜̪̘͓̗̬̬e͍l͇̱̥͔̹̲͢i͍̠̥n̛̲̝̝͕̝͔̰g̠̣̮ ͡a̘̗̲̤̠͇͎ ̪̟̤͈͚l̸͕̮͙̰̤i̢͈̟̯̮͈tt̡͎̯͇ĺe̦̟̗͚̟͎͟ ͕̜͘h͜ú̜͕̦͈͕̼ņ͙̞̠͇g̤̫̫̥̩r̯̩͕͍̺͔͠y͎̤̕,̼̝͎̝ ̤̞̪̳a̞̪̠r͎̼e҉̮̙͈̺̹̻ ̝́w͚̜̼̩̮̣͖e̺͍̙̼?̩͇̞͓͖̼̦<This one...is mine!>Wę̮̟̪̯'҉̝̲͙̠̖̯ĺ͎̮l̥͙̼̕ ͖̰̺̻́ś̞͖̺̘ͅe͎͕̟͍͇̕e͉̲͓͙̻͠.̥̝͔̺͎̤You slam into the writhing curse of Legion's influence.

Your latching appendages grapple for domination as you firht with the creature of the nether over the body of the still-living, still screaming angel.

Legion has been getting nailed with nat 100s from the outset hasn't he? Wasn't it a nat 100 that let us consume a part of him originally?

>>25331047It's nisemonogatari a sequel to Bakemonogatari I think. Here's a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1jY7BLQVMc of that gif came from I think
>>25331099In our defense, we didn't have much choice.
>>25331047Nisemongatari. An anime about paranormal investigations and a half vampire MC who tries to solve mysteries. In that picture he's brushing his sister's teeth as she orgasms. It's actually pretty super good. Diolouge is amazing.
>>25331065why is my dick so hard right now?
>>25331094hey man Im new at this internet buisness
>>25331074It's like our 10th one when CONSUMing.
SM, please give us the chance to write in what we want to say/do to this prick as we CONSUME him.
>>25331047>>25331109It's also where my name comes from. There's a vampire in the show with the name Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade.>pic is her
>>25331139"You have told me of your pleasures. Let me show you mine."
>>25330964Does anyone have that image where two people are pulling on a guy's arms, and one of them rips his arm off, and he runs off screaming, while one of the other guys just says something like "damn, forgot to make a wish"?Cause that would be totally appropriate here.
>>25331146good fucking anime and light novel

>>25331242Say nothing. He's just meat now. Our breakfast.
>>25331242This is Justice
So... I know everyone is excited about Michael getting a proper dick-punching, but what are we going to do about Legion?Personally, I'm all in favor of letting him go on a rampage here. Plus, we need something to keep all the angels occupied while we GTFO.
>>25331056Man, fuck that bitch. You know what, I don't care if it's out of character- I want to rape legion. Full on tentacle rape this piece of shit. At the very least, the angels are corrupt and want to keep an iron grip on the world. At least these fuckers have a reasonable motivation for oppressing us. But legion? He just wants to be a cryptic bastard that fucks with us because he thinks hes hot shit. When the time comes, I'm gonna roll for penetrating this faggot. Shadow master better not pussy out either, no fade to black, no "oh you just consumed him"- no. no. NO. I want this zalgo texting motherfucker to chock on mr. Shadow's dick.I'm dead serious, I hate this dude more than all the angels combined. I'm so mad bro.

>>25331289This is objectively the best possible thing we could say.
>>25331289>>25331285I don't think we can do better than this.
>>25331198Serious. It has some of the most over the top fanservice I've ever seen (which is annoying) but other than that it's incredibly well written and also /tg/ as heck. I mean, it's about trapped souls, gods, vampires, curses and such. I'll shut up now, though. I don't want to derail.>>25331241Season 2 this summer.
>>25331301>>25331289Seconding what tsun said with angel food cake.
>>25331289Ahahaha wish this place had cameras so we could take a picture of his face
>>25331242On charges of torture and rape, you are sentenced to death.
>>25331242I'm so glad you refused my offer to help before I got to know you Michael. (take the form of the armless woman as we continue CONSUMING him). I had misjudged you then.
>>25331242he has a mindbreak boner?we have a justice boner.<In the end i kept my offer. I have healed curse. you will die what you really are. a monster>

I'm so excited I don't even know.
>>25331289ok this. i want to say this so much it hurts
>>25331242<You spoke of taking pleasure on the flesh of other, lets see you enjoy it on yours.>
>>25331289This. A billion times this.
>>25331347Same here. This is going to be delicious.
this is going to be GOOD.
Hell fucking yes, this was totally worth sitting through the shitstorm that yesterday's threads kicked up.
>>25331380This will be brilliant. I don't know (for sure) how we'll be paying for it later, but right now? Worth it!
Also, we should think about getting more stealthy and hide our presence right after this. If we are lucky the other angels hadn't taken notice of us getting free yet.
>>25331483Yeah, if we want to free Ila, our next order of business will be figuring out how to get her soul back, and I think that's going to really, REALLY hard.
I don't even care what the consequences are, I just want to see Yi Fang's face when he learns what we did here.
>>25331483>>25331514Soundless and what ever is after it would be great, now that we have wreath of darkness.
>>25331380I know you shouldn't rush genus, SM, but please hurry. I just got to know.
This is assuming quite a bit, but....If Nightblaze sent warden back as his own dynamo, leaving the earth dynamo here and assuming dynamos are made of elementals...Did we just release an earth elemental?Should we be concerned?
>>25331537We might also want to look into getting Compress as well.
>>25331537Or oneness to drop the cost of all shadow magic.Or save for servant.Or maybe even that one ability that costs mana for more stealth. I forget the name.
>>25331521I think he might attempt to copulate with us...Wait a minute,Oh godOH MY GODGUYS, WE WERE THE WAIFU ALL ALONG!MY MINDFUUUUUCK!!!!
>>25331563We could transmute Michael's angelity into Ila's angelity!
>>25331563Servant is a more long-term goal, I want Ila to be our first subject, and I think it'll be more prudent to use our Exp for other things that are more urgently necessary to secure her freedom.
>>25331580YI FANG WAS THE MAIN CHARACTER ALL ALONGIT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW
>>25331514Well Michel is (Or should I say was HAHAHa) the healer and scientist of the group and was the one who personally remove Ila soul. Maybe we can get more information about it in this tower. >>25331537I was thinking about magical stealth, we should also avoid using focus for now.
"I...don't want...to die..." Michael whimpers.You begin to change. You morph into an armless woman.<It's too late for that, Michael.> You finish eating his legs, and begin chewing up through his abdomen, one slow, excruciating bite at a time. <No one I've met has deserved to suffer as you do.> You take another bite. Michael screams louder. <Do you feel that? It's the pain you've inflicted on others. Here it is, returned tenfold.> You bite off his hand. <With interest.>Michael screams, and screams again. His voice starts to become hoarse. "NOOO! PLEASE!!"<Is that what your victims shouted at you?> You subsume his left arm, dissolving it in the acid of your body. <How does it feel?>He's a limbless torso, now. His gasps are short and uneven. His eyes are wide and unfocused.You loom over him, waiting until his gaze locks on you.<By the way,> you say, <Auriel is copulating with Sir Flint of Arland. They love each other very much. You'll never have her.> You press in closer, until you're touching his face. <You told me of your pleasures. Let me show you mine.>His remaining screams are muffled as you consume the rest of his body.You stand. Ila watches you. She's crying. There's a grim smile painted on her face.The building shakes underneath you. It's tilting dangerously to one side. Stone grinds on stone. Points of light are scurrying below...a response is starting to form.

>>25331594>>it's time for stealth. Release Ila, and find where the souls of the shadow and spirit mages are keptThey don't know what happen we still have time.
Please, do not servant anyone.We need to unlock more shit, first.
>>25331594>CONSUME STEWARD BEFORE ANYTHING ELSETHIS IS VITALLY IMPORTANTWE MUST DESTROY THE EVIDENCE
>>25331594alright. get soundless, compress, shadow domination, earth and wind resist, poison, twisting gloom, shadow blast, fog, and gaping maw. i dont even know how much xp that will take
>>25331594...That was kind of disturbing honestly. Fucker deserved it though.
>>25331654We don't need to use Servant on Ila. She already has all the shadow powers we could grant her. She's just constrained by the angels.
>>25331700This.At the moment Servant does jack-all. We need to buy Servant powers first.
Rolled 42>>25331594>>it's time for stealth. Release Ila, and find where the souls of the shadow and spirit mages are keptAbout the experience spending, could we use some in summoning since we haven't done much in that tree yet?
>>25331674Rather not use it for that. I'd like to finish some of the grey trees, go for the stealth skill Soundless because it likely leads to more stealth related skills, maybe get the earth & wind resists in the strength and defense trees.
>>25331703Oh shit yeahhold up maybe we should buy pocket and store Steward in there?
>>25331594>it's time for stealth. Release Ila, and find where the souls of the shadow and spirit mages are keptGet Soundless and Oneness for starters.
>>25331594All the stealth, you hear me?ALL.THE.STEALTH.Fog, twisting gloom, soundless, shadowmeld... All that shit- right fucking NOW.
>>25331703release Ila>>25331594and collect steward. especially the chest section. need to see if the power core made it through
>>25331722Servant is also passive buffs. It will make her shadow magic even stronger.
BUY SHADOWMELD >Shadowmeld - Magic-based stealth. Pay any amount of mana. Physical and magical stealth increases based on how much mana was spent until stealth is broken. Can be used to re-stealth mid-battle.
>>25331755Our exp. is better spent elsewhere.
>>25331594>it's time for stealth. Release Ila, and find where the souls of the shadow and spirit mages are kept<Ila i'm not going to harm any other angel so once I release you there is no reason to attack me, from this point on I would like to be considered friends of the angels> can we bullshit something like this so she isnt compelled to atack us imediately?
<Be mindful, Justice is not kind, though you would do well to remember that the worse you treat them, the more like them you become. I feel that the Airship may soon attract attention. If my instincts are correct, I may have a gift for you there...>let us preform more Justice and free the souls of the mages. or at least take them with us...
>>25331741>>25331769Pocket is locked, we can't buy it.
>>25331594Tell Ila that despite everything, Auriel is still a member of the angelic host and that Ila's service should revert to her if we can't fix things now.
>>25331771I agree with tsun tsun on this matter.Time for master stealth.
>>25331703Right, this. Don't leave the deactivated dwarven marvel of technology for the angels to reverse-engineer.
>>25331594we stealth now.
>>25331771Yeah we need this!
BUY ALL THE STEALTHALL OF IT
>>25331755She's literally the last person who needs Servant.Abby should be our priority, followed by (maybe) Joey.
>>25331771Buy it. We need more stealth
>>25331745Seconding this and adding Compress and Gaping Maw, it will only cost us 28XP.
>>25331594first, buy compress, twisting gloom, soundless, fog, and shadow domination. shadow domination because i think it might unlock more stealth options
>>25331828No one needs servant, we should put off making anyone it until we, ourselves, get stronger.
>>25331594I vote to hold on to exp until we figure out how to get darkness within. If we have the key, we might as well hold on to the exp for it.
Okay, lets buy ALL The resistances.Wind, Lightning, Water, and Earth Resistance. I don't know how much that will cost us, since they just cost n.
>>25331771Let's also get soundless with that. Super stealth buffs upon constant stealth buff.
Seriously, if we're going to go all Mission Impossible inside the Ring City, we need all the stealth we can get.
>>25331771Agreed Shadow Meld would be the best.And then use 10 mana for stealth
>>25331594Yes. That was... everything I could have hoped for.It was wrong, but... I'm so fucking happy, I don't even. *sniff*
>>25331594Just enough xp to make one servant. Well played SM.
>>25331771Buy it. Buy it and all the other stealth we can
>>25331896And yet, we seem to be about to spend it on things that are not servant. We're like fucking hamsters with our ADD on this skill tree.
>>25331896We're not making servants we're getting stealth buffs. Pouyey you.
Lets buy Shadow Meld and see what unlocks
>>25331792Pocket is broken as hell though."I'm going to need about a hundred very large steel poles.""Why?""Oh, no reason"... And then orbital bombardment happens.
>>25331771Agreed. Let's do this.
>>25331910Because servant shit.
GUYS HOLY SHITWE CAN AFFORD TO GET VOID RING
>>25331594>You morph into an armless woman.I...I feel like I contributed something. Thanks be to the Master of Shadows.
>>25331910We need to finish the smaller cheaper trees, and stealth is pertinent to our situation, so it's best for now.
>>25331896I am pretty sure that is our chance to save Illa it seems like a pretty damn well placed hint
>>25331896We don't have any candidates for servant nearby, but plenty of need for combat and/or stealth powers right fucking now.
>>25331933We don't have the mana pool to support it, sadly
>>25331933You're right, it'd only be 34 points.
ALRIGHTY---------------------Stealth is winning by a mile.---------------------Purchase list:Soundless - 3Twisting Gloom - 3Fog - 3Shadowmeld - 7Total: 16 EXPEXP remains: 29I'm buying these 4 by sheer popular demand.Oneness and Compress also seem popular.Please submit opinions.
Going to have to agree.Buy all the stealth SM>
>>25331962What does Soundless unlock?
>>25331933This. A few quadrillion times. We need more magic offense.
>>25331962Wait until we get those and we will talk about buying more.
>>25331962Buy those, wait to see unlocks
>>25331947Servant doesn't LITERALLY make someone our servant, it just gives them a bunch of permanent buffs. If we want Ila on our side, we've gotta figure out how to free her first.
>>25331962>25331962That's good, can we buy all that and see what's AFTER soundless? Because so far that line has been all stealth.
>>25331962compress as well. and oneness. and shadow bomb. i have a fellign we will be wanting some explosives
>>2533195930xp for a mana pool15xp for servantWe just need to get her soul back...

>>25331984no shit, I was aware; i meant through the upcoming hell that is going to be the angels descending upon us.do you think that the shadow mage will be left be- guilty by association on an existence barely tolerated as is.
>>25332002I was talking about our mana pool 20/20 for use of spells.And that comment wasn't even about servant. It was about how we don't have enough mana to use void ring effectively.
>>25331962Yes to all of this.Thank you for listening to reason.
>>25331962Buy Shadowmeld and Soundless, lets see what those two unlock
>>25331962get Soundless, Twisting Gloom, Shadowmeld and Disguise.
>>25331925And still in red and has an arrow coming off of it that we would have to unlock when we haven't even gotten that tree unlocked. So let me put it simply since you didn't get it the first time. We can't fucking buy it yet. Read the ability tree picture, specifically the spot where it lists the key of what the colors mean. I should not be pointing out the obvious to you, anon.>>25331962Wait for the unlocks.
>>25331962Sneaky shadow time. I've wanted stealth for so long.
>>25331962What about multishade? They're already trying to catch ONE shadow - let's see them try to catch ten. The more, the merrier.
>>25331962Let's also get Earth Resistance, and Wind Resistance, and Schattenkrieg to see if that opens up Darkness within.
>>25331962Not suggesting it yet, but we might want to buy Disguise if we need to sneak any of our allies out of here.
>>25332048>>25332040We already got soundless, twisting gloom, and shadowmeld. READING COMPREHENSION.
>>25331962>>25331962Fast blink would be very, very nice to have
>>25332061Fast blink looks better honestly. Probably unlocks better things too.
>>25332085>>25332086>Fast blink mind
Just wait for him to post the new chart so we don't all get confused.
>>25332074Our allies can get out of here just fine, trapped shadow mages excepting, I'd say we should lay off the forms while we're here and just stick to being an extremely stealthy amorphous shadow.
>>25332086I'll second that unless something after shadowmeld/soundless looks even tastier.
>>25332061>>25332086I dont think they will work so well right now. We want to avoid detection at all cost, not misdirect our pursuers
>Max out stealth>Pretend to be Michael>Walk down the street sceaming "BITCHES AND WHORES!"
New Tree:Grave Silence - Unless you wish it, you make no sound detectable by mundane or magical means. (bonus to stealth and magic stealth)Conceal - Target gains all your current stealth bonuses until they are spotted or enter battle (costs 2 mana)
>>25332156Ohhhhgaaaawd. I wonder if shadowmeld works with disguises? The ability doesn't really sound like it does based on its naming convention...
We have shadow beam. Let's get Ray of Darkness so that its upgraded and we can play Shadow Artillery.
>>25332191CONCEALDEAR GOD CONCEALWE USE IT ON ILA, THEY CAN'T GIVE HER ORDERS IF THEY CAN'T FIND HER
>>25332156Oh wowI'd laugh my ass off if Sandalphon and the rest actually come down and start defending our horrible actions to save face
>>25332191Fast blinkI want to see if it has an upgraded teleport option for us.
We should probably get grave silence.
>>25332191Oooooooh, conceal... hmmm... Also, it seems like we need to unlock more of the summoning tree soon.
>>25332213I distrust your caps.>>25332191Let's gate gaping maw.
Still voting that we get something from the summoning tree.
>>25332220It's locked. Looks like we need to buy ghost and go down the summon tree a bit.
>>25332155>>25332155>>assuming our shit rolls wont get us caught no mstter how stealthy we are>>not realizing the utility of being able to blink multiple times around corners to get the fuck out of dodge
>>25332233>I distrust your caps.Oh, uh. How about this then.Conceal!Dear god, conceal!We use it on Ila: They can't give her orders if they can't find her!
>>25332246Let's get ghost then. Leads to grave silence.
>>25332191Summoning and conceal.
>>25332191Oh man, conceal and disguise were made for each other, let's get them.
>>25332191ok. compress. shadow dominationgaping mawpoisonand ghost
>>25332235>>25332249In that case, Conceal and oneness
>>25332191Look at the arrow leading to Grave Silence. If we want that ability, odds are we'll have to purchase Ghost from the summoning tree as well. 9 XP total - should we go for it, or do we want to spend it on something else?
>>25332259>locked ability>buy itholy bejeezus you people are fucking dense
>>25332264Much better. Never underestimate how reasonable an indoor voice sounds.>>25332249Anyone else want to buy ghost and what's after it to see if we can get to Grave Silence?
Gaping Maw and Shadow Domination.
>>25332274why do all these people want conceal?Ila is already stealthy as fuck. it gives no bonus for us.
Analyze might be good if we're breaking into the soul vault.
>>25332191Lets get compress and then save our exp.>>25332258Fast blink doesn't let us blink more, it just gives us a blink-based super.
>>25332289My vote is for Conceal and oneness as well.
>>25332299I know, it's like some of these fuckers are handicapped.
>>25332292No, the arrow is broken. We'll have to buy something AFTER ghost, THEN Grave Silence. Not worth it right now. Conceal and Oneness.
>>25332191We should get Gaping Maw to CONSUME better. Also Fast Blink for escaping.
>>25332191putting in a vote for fast blink
>>25332318>>25332289I'll second conceal + oneness
>>25332322I am pretty sure they mean buy everything up to it yo
>>25332318why? it gives negligible bonuses right now.
>>25332191Shadow domination could work wonder for stealth if we use it subtlety.
>>25332310Oneness, Analyze and Gaping Maw.
>>25332345We have 29 xpConceal + Oneness + Poison
>>25332311First, we should find Flint and Auriel, have them follow us into the Great Gardens, where we can find the body.
>>25332191crap, I must have missed something. when did we get shadow control, and what is shadow domination? can't find it in the pastebin
finish the strength tree. get earth res
>>25332397>Shadow Domination - You can dominate and control the shadow of most objects, including people. Bonus to shadow attack power.
Hey guys.Do we want to stealth from the angels coming up here, or risk fighting them for more xp? Too risky?
>>25332268I'll agree to that.>>25332345I'll agree to oneness but conceal isn't helpful right now. Ila is already naturally stealthy.>>25332397>Shadow Domination - You can dominate and control the shadow of most objects, including people. Bonus to shadow attack power.
>>25332418good point, I'm changing my vote to all o' dis
>>25332418>Shadow DomI want.
>>25332418If we knew exactly how stealthy that'd be cool. But I guess I can agree to drop conceal. It would be nice for the rest of the party eventually though.
>>25332191Gaping Maw and Compress. We should save a few points to burn if needed...
>>25332313>>25332313>"OPENS ADDITIONAL MOVEMENT AND ESCAPE OPTIONS"
>>25332418ghost buy ghost
>>25332418alright i will compromise to this. compres, oneness, shadow domination, and ghost
>>25332418Okay, Oneness and Shadow Dom.
>>25332465>>25332458..What's the point in getting ghost if we're not willing to go the whole mile towards grave silence? It seems like an undirected waste atm.
>>25332191guys, what if we can access Darkness Within if we finish all the trees leading up to it? I mean, Schattenkrieg is unlocked, and we finished the speed tree. I say we buy Wind and Earth Resistance, just to test it out.
>>25332415Way too risky. Ila is bound to protect the angels, we'd have to fight her too. All these angels flying around in their own capital city? Even if we consume more, it's only going to get Sandalphon himself down here.It's time to make like a tree and get out of here.
>>25332418 ok so this post is:ghost - 3oneness - 15shadow domination - 4compress - 5that's 27 xpI can dig it.We can get fast blink on our next run. Even though it's great for escape, we don't really want to escape exactly at the moment. we can just hop out the currently open window if we need to bail quickly - right now we need to evade detection, and that's what these four abilities do.
>>25332488to see what the intermediate thing costs, maybe?
>>25332191also everyone remember. shadow power does not break stealth.and shadow domination increases shadow power
>>25332503Adding poison is doable.
>>25332488because i was going to vote for whatever leads to grave silence next?
Consider this for later: Water Recovery. The Ring city is on an island. When we get that far, the regeneration will be needed one way or another, especially if we're still being pursued.
>>25332503addendum: wispbro will be upgraded to ghostbro now
>>25332503I can dig it as well.
>>25332525>So many things I want and even this ridiculous chunk of xp wasn't enough.
>>25332503>>25332503>>25332503And when we're underground looking for mage souls?
>>25332509Then we could get ghost first, see the intermediate, and then go forward while actually having xp to spend on moving that line towards GS?I'd prefer other things though.
>>25332503Seconding for stealth and because Shadow Domination will unlock a lot of stuff.
>>25332522Why ever bother with poison? We already have the ability to disease people yet we have never seen it work.I say save the EXP to spend later or for EXP burn.
Conceal and Oneness seem to be winning by a lot. Is this a go?----------------------------------------You glance at Ila. <Is it safe to unbind you?>She's still crying. She clenches tightly, drawing her knees to her chest. "Can't...help you. Would...attack you. They...come..."<Where is your soul kept?>"...under...deep..."----------------------------------------This is dragging on. I have to get to bed soon.Vote 1:>Fast BlinkVote 2:>OnenessVote 3:>ConcealVote 4:>Shadow DominationVote 5:>CompressVote 6:>GhostVote 7:>Earth Resistance/Wind Resistance/SchattenkriegFirst 20 votes get counted. You may vote for multiple numbers.
>>25332509That's one thing, but I've mainly been wanting to explore the summon tree. After everything SM has stated, such as being able to customize summons, and the probability of another resistance being hidden in there, I want to see more. It's also our least explored tree at the moment.
>>25332456Which we can buy when we need them, if we just save our EXP instead of spending like madmen.We get compress for a last touch of stealth, plus shadow power because >>25332520 , and then we leave the EXP along till we -need- to buy more.>>253325734&5
>>253325732. 4. 5. 6.NOT CONCEAL
>>25332503Throw on poison as well.
>>25332573vote 2, 4, and 6
>>25332573Vote 1.Vote 6.
>>25332573Go with >>25332503
>>253325732, 4 and 5.
>>253325731, 4 and 7.
>>253325732456 and poison
>>253325734: Shadow Domination5: Compress
>>25332573Oh god. Seven things to vote for. It's like the German party elections of the early part of last century.>4>2>1
>>253325732,4,5, and 6 are my votes.
>>253325731 and 7.
>>253325732, 4, 5, 6
>>253325731, 2, 5
>>253325731, 4, 5, 6
>>25332615I knew what I was signing up for when I made the tree. It's just something we have to work through!
>>25332573Fuck it. Eat Servant, leave a shade as the culprit, and sneak out to find Flint and Auriel.
>>25332573>Shadow Domination>Compress4 and 5.
>>253325732, 4, 5.
>>25332573Meh, I'll just count everything up to here.Cutting off votes.
I ain't gonna help you count all dis shit SM. You have amazing stamina to ask for votes like this at this time of night.
Don't forget!SPEND SOME MANA!to activate Shadowmeld.Dat stealth.
>>25332678Lol.>buy shadowmeld for mah stealth>forget to use itYeah, let's not be that silly.
>>25332573Basicly: 2 3 4 5 6To make it easier to count.
Id we spent 10 mana on shadow meld in increments of 2 (2, 2, 2, 2, 2) so that the total spent was 10, would it have the same effect as spending 10 outright or would it be less?
>>25332670Compress and Shadow Dominion seem like the only clear choices.We can get those, then see what happens. Shadow dominion's unlocks may change some people's minds.Also, it may be a good idea to cut off the thread soon. I've noticed that our worst choices tend to happen at the end to threads, when both the players and You are utterly exhausted and not paying full attention.
>>25332730Because if it is, Oneness will drop 2 mana spells to 1 cost. Meaning we could get a 10 mana power Shadowmeld for 5 mana by doing multiple small casts.
