Trusting in your strength, you slam into the wall.

But it isn't just any normal stone. It's stone imbued by the power of an earth mage after sitting in what might be the most magical fortress of all time for untold ages. It's stronger than any normal stone. Super, special, secret stone. The stone of your doom.

Or maybe you just got unlucky.

You slam into the wall. It cracks and crumbles under the force of the blow, but holds firm. You reel backward, stunned.

>you've taken 5 damage (51/56)

The gargoyles, still following your orders, swim through the stone like sharks, but she's quickly gaining distance. Your blow opened a hole; you could Ink through and continue your pursuit. But now that she's had a few more moments, she'll probably have something up her sleeve...not to mention you'll be running after her through unfamiliar hallways in the dead of night.

What do you do?

You slide through the gap in the wall. The mage is already turning the corner. You pull yourself through the gap, frustrated. <Fang! If you can hear me, one of them is getting away!>

You get the rest of your body through, then Blink to the corner of the hallways.

You feel yourself trip something.

Earth magic flares. A barrage of stalactites twists from the walls and fires at your position. At the same time, jagged stalagmites rise from the floor, forming a field of spikes to impede your progress.

You take wing and soar ahead, outrunning the attacking and avoiding the spikes. You spin and twist through the hall, and the earth doesn't touch you. You gain ground quickly, but leave the gargoyles behind.

The earth mage glances over her shoulder. Panic streams across her face. She forms a brown sphere between her hands as she runs, then releases it. Blocks of stone grow out of the hall in a twisted, intricate net. It's less solid than the wall, but clearly it's just meant to slow you, not stop you.

You plow forward, half sprinting, half flying.

You try to avoid the stone, but with your momentum, it's impossible. You slam through the barriers one after another, breaking them apart with your body. You lose speed, but in a moment, you're through.

>you've taken 3 damage (48/56)

The mage is just ahead. She's cobbling more mana into another spell. You're not going to reach her in time for a direct attack.

AGREED.

Also, someone should probably archive the first thread, if it hasn't been done already
>>
>>25514245
Yep
>>
>>25514255
It's there already.
>>
>>25514232

I am just saying she is a little far and Ray of Darkness is made for this: Taking out a single opponent at range, is extremely accurate and we cant afford to let her escape.
>>
>>25514245
gargoyles can be useful with helping defend Abby or we can take them to the Shadow Mages as sentinals.
>>
>>25514245
15 of them. At least one each. Probably more.

Yes eat.
>>
>>25514283

Plus we have to do it fast before some else see us.
>>
>>25514283
I think we should get fast blink instead, to catch her.
>>
>>25514283
We have the ability to easily refresh our mana from the pool below the city.

We can afford to cast both shadowflare and shadow beam, that way if one fails we have a backup.
>>
>>25514328
Fast blink is not a utility thing. It's like Double Team from pokemon. Just flash around to increase evasion.
>>
>>25514342
But it does probably unlock long range teleport.
>>
>>25514311
Another idea, just throwing it out there, is to make this place our base. I know it's risky, seeing as we ate the family that lived here, but SM has repeatedly said it's a virtual fortress with a ton of defenses. We could use it to our advantage if we keep the gargoyles around.
>>
>>25514393
Why would we make this place our base when we have Fang's house? It's surely more defended, and no way Fang will let Abby stay here instead.

And why do we need a base all to our own since Flint is staying in Fang's house too?
>>
>>25514354
Given that teleportation has been shown to be a spirit thing, i would expect any teleport at the end of the blink chain to have a prerequisite in spirit magic as well.
>>
>>25514449
The leading theory is that whatever comes after mind crush will unlock teleport.
>>
>>25514342
>Fast Blink - You can unleash a flurry of sight-range teleports, baffling and confusing your enemies. (exceptional dodge buff for two turns; opens additional movement and escape options. Costs 6 mana. Negates enemy initiative. 5-turn cooldown.)
The thing I'm looking at is "unlock addtitional movement and escape options". I thought this meant that we could use it for movement options, like catching up and getting places quicker than supersonic
>>
>>25514505

also, blink + fast blink don't share cooldowns, do they?

If we do plan on Servanting Abigail we should get Shared Resistances as well. (And maybe multishade)

why its retroactive, we could servant her then get it either right after or at the very end of this quest. She would have it either way.

>>25513989
sm is a pretty cool guy, he lets us do butt stuff and stuff
>>
Oh shit guys, I just remembered. SM wanted us to decide what to do.
>>
>>25514673
We don't really need to woryy about servanting until we get to her. I think that since everyone has had ample time to present their arguments on the subject, we should drop it until it comes time to vote on it.
>>
>>25514722
oh, right... I think we should blink, bind HARD, and interrogate her. then CONSUME, if approriate

Interrogate(depending on what she says), or Consume immediately?

Consume. She's in league with the peopel that wanted to kill Abby.

>>25514933
Which is why we would want to interrogate.

We can always eat her afterwards.

>>25514933

We lose nothing, and this could just be a misunderstanding.

>>25514949

My feeling as well.

In any case, there's a REASON the younger siblings weren't at the family dinner/home.

Which means she may not be related to the family at all. We may be trying to kill an innocent. Which I think would be horribly out of character. we should bring her back into the house for interrogation, and determine judgment there.

We can probably infer she lives nearby then, or is on a night shift schedule.

Interrogate first.

looking back at Jen Fang's diary, it seems that Abby's mother was not originally human... The question is, What was Abby's father working on that brought her mother into his life? Some kind of summon, mayhap?

In B4 Spirit Elemental...

>>25515378
It was the family house. She came in. She is part of the family.

She dies.

>Which means she may not be related to the family at all. We may be trying to kill an innocent. Which I think would be horribly out of character. we should bring her back into the house for interrogation, and determine judgment there.

Totally. If we consume her first without asking questions, we'll get temerity up the wazoo.

I still don't get why people treat this as a bad thing.

Just seems to me yall got murderous and gullible pretty easy. How do we know Yi actually intends to retire? "K guys I know im a ag├Ęd lich and all but let me hand off my kingdom to this 10 year old."

We know for sure prof and gramps are in on whatever plans they have for Abby but ma and pa didn't say anything really.

Yi just sort of said sic' em boy and here we are killing off his rivals
>>
>>25515418
Alright, let me rephrase my statement. If we consume a potentially innocent person without asking questions, it will be a very bad and out of character thing, regardless of her actual innocence.
>>
>>25515432
I had a suspicion that Fang was going to try to do a body swap on Abby or something.
>>
>>25515398

So? Is not like temerity is bad. She is a complication that could turn into a problem. If we act as Abby familiar and their is an incident about a family eaten by a shadow things will be more difficult.

Get rip of the complication before it turns into a problem.
>>
>>25515432
>10 year old
He's going to raise her to be his heir, he's not doing it now. Think 10, 15 years from now. Either way, it's something we can take care of later.

>Yi just sort of said sic' em boy and here we are killing off his rivals
You mean the rivals that tried to kill Abigail, an innocent ten year old girl who's been one of our most important people since day one? Yeah, not losing any sleep over here.
>>
>>25515396
We -can- kill her after interrogation, or if she just plain doesn't say anything.

>>25515418
It's a thing that damages our ability to interact with people if it outpaces humanity by too far.
to restate Temerity gives bonuses to intimidation and acting the role of the monstrous shadow, but it also can give penalties to human/humanoid interaction if taken too far.

No it's not. The actions related to temerity / humanity are based around our number in them, not their ratio. We've had roughly equal temerity and humanity the entire quest, yet we've definitely become more human over the course of it.

We actually had higher temerity for a bit, and it didn't change us.

It seems like everyone wants to nightflare her incoming spell. Good thinking.

So I know it's been suggested before, but should we adopt a more monstrous form if we intend to look after Abby for any length of time?

You use nightflare!

>mana: 19/20

The world shocks negative, and a pulse of magic-unraveling power travels from you toward the mage.

Her spell fires back - but not at you! It travels up into the stone of the wall. Your nightflare shaves it in half, cutting the power, but it makes contact with the stone.

A fist of rock plows down from the ceiling, nearly crushing you. You manage to pin yourself into the corner between the blast and the hallway, scuttling by without damage, but you lost some ground on the mage.

You throw a bind at the mage!

>mana: 17/20

But she raises her hands. A bubble of green, earthen light forms around her. The binds of Spirit snap around the barrier and fall to pieces.

You continue running down the tunnel. You can feel a presence ahead - Archon city guards! There's a strong Spirit mage with them.

You've only got one more shot to stop her. What do you do?

Giving Shadow an actual gender in any way would be the worst thing that could happen to this thread.

It would be the people who want Shadow to get a waifu vs the people who want Shadow to be the waifu.

>>25516361

No. Consuming the pendant and consuming all the gargoyles...it's like consuming parts of the same enchantment. All adds up to the same.

Honestly, I thought everyone's first idea would be "hey, give it to Abby. 16 new bodyguards!" Seems more valuable that way, but I guess you could eat it.

You can't let her get to the next intersection. If the guards see a monster - a summon - or whatever they interpret you as, chasing a citizen...they'll surely act against you.

You remember how Darkxis controlled you through your shadow...

You extend your own shadow. It grows, distends, then stretches along the ground, shooting forward for the mage. It doesn't look like it's going to reach - !

She approaches another series of lights embedded in the hallway. Her shadow flicks outwards.

You have her.

You grip her by her shadow. She freezes midstride. Her throat works as she tries to scream, but you've got her!

What do you do?

You feel each twitch and strain of her muscle through your shadow. With a grunt of effort, you drag her back into your arms. You keep her pinned with your shadow, and bundle her up in your arms, sprinting back down the hallway.

You wince as you pass the remains of the battle. The guards are going to be right behind you, if they heard anything at all - and by the direction they're traveling in, they at least sensed the magic. You duck around the stone fist and hop in between the broken slats of stone she threw in your way. Luckily, you don't come across anyone else.

You reach the Suen family home. The gargoyles are back at your side. You have them lock the door, then pin the woman to the ground.

The woman's eyes are full of fear, but she doesn't speak.

I've been reminded twice today already.

>>25517174
Glad I'm doing something right. Generally my rule of thumb is only to post when I'm adding something directly related to Shadow Quest. This cuts down on the "shitposting" that doesn't have anything to do with the Quest.

>>25517232
Because everyone hates tripfags but people are okay-ish with namefriends. I don't make the rules...

But that's enough off-topic posting from me, because this kind of shit is what makes tripping cancerous eventually.

Why is it even particularly important to be anything but anonymous in a quest? To avoid accusations of same faggotry? Understandable, I suppose. Not necessary. To identify your suggestions and rolls as yours? Why does it matter? They carry no more weight than any other roll or suggestion.

TL;DR, tripping serves no practical purpose.

You loom over her, facing her with claws, teeth, and angry eyes.

<If you are innocent, I will not hurt you. But you will answer my questions, or you die.>

The woman just stares at you. She's shaking like a leaf.

"...Li Suen."

<Are you related to professor Suen?>

"...y-yes. She's my sister."

<Do you support her bid for the council seat?>

"...y-you're one of Fang's summons," the woman says. She closes her eyes. "Just...make it quick."

"...yes."

>>25517391
Is it in any feasible for us to make a good faith attempt to rescue her without putting ourselves at undue risk, bearing in mind we have blink back up by now (I think) and supersonic, and enough health to tank some sky-sever?

If yes, we should rescue her because: she seemed hesitant, I suspect there's more to her than just a Saturday Morning Villain. She might have information, and she may still be salvageable. This is justice.

If no then sorry lady but my life is more important than yours. Om nom nom.

That's why you don't use a trip, all it is is a giant fucking signpost that reminds everyone what your opinions are and make it easier for the arguments to be brought back up again when they should just die out from the quest moving on. Just look at the daily reminder to see my point.

>giant fucking signpost that reminds everyone what your opinions are
That's the point. I'm not going to have this argument here, but if you spend some time on the debate-heavy boards on 4chan (>implying) then you'll soon realise how frustrating it is trying to argue against/as an anon.
>>
>>25517544

The people screaming death forget that the conspiracy may not end with just this family.

so by screaming for death, they may only be putting abby's life further in danger by leaving enemies unexposed

<...who else plots against her?>

"...we are allied with councilor Hae Cheung," she says. "...he's planning something. We were just the distraction. He said he would make my sister a councilor. Our family would have - " She stops. Her eyes drip tears. "...please, kill me. I can't face Fang. Just kill me."

<...what if I let you go?>

For a moment, she's stunned. But then she shakes her head. "...I don't know what gaps in your commands allow you to make such an offer...but...he'll just find me. He always keeps his word. And he told the councilors what would happen to anyone that threatened the girl." She shakes her head. "I made my choice. End it. Please. Please, don't let him have me."

You snap the woman's neck. She slumps in your arms.

You consume her quickly.

>you gain 3 experience (37 total)
>you gain 1 mana (18/20)

You empty the rest of the house, leaving it as if the family simply disappeared themselves in a single night. You look back on what you've done.

You had to protect Abigail...but this has been a brutal night.

...you are not as unflinching in the face of violence as you used to be.

You fly off the edge of the veranda and return to the entrance of Fang's tower. You enter the building, sneak up the stairs, slipping past the moonlight that filters in through the windows.

The study door opens as you approach. Fang is seated within. He looks up when you arrive. "...is it done?"

You nod. <...the Suen family is finished.> You look at him. <What did you tell the councilors would happen if they threatened Abigail?>

Fang rises. He looks out the window that tops his study, peering at the moon.

"...I have lost...too much," Fang says. "What little I have left...I must guard with all my strength." He turns to you. "I do not enjoy brutality, or violence. I take no pleasure in it. There is no pleasure in it. Only dominance...and the reward of complete dominance, is isolation. I received what I asked for, so long ago. I made my choices...and here I am."

<...what do you mean?>

"When I was young, I was brilliant. But I was not wise." He waves a hand. "...it matters not. Long dead memories. Dead feelings. Or so I believed."

<...until Abigail.>

"...I have nothing else but her. I sought my brother for nearly ten years. Not because I wanted revenge, Shadow. But because...I wanted to apologize. Now, he is dead, and I never will." He looks back to you. "I told them exactly what I would do to anyone caught in the act of harming her. I would rip out their souls and imprison them in a contraption I'd built specifically for the purpose. Their soul would be peeled back in layers, as if shaving the skin back with sandpaper, followed by flaying away bits of muscle. And then I'd cut the tendons, and extract their innards, and fry their exposed nerves raw. And when they were nothing but a quivering heap of sentience driven mad by the pain, I'd heal them. And then I'd go to work on them."

You nod. <...if you catch them...you may do as you will. As for me, a quick death is enough.>

"Well. You've only lived a few months, correct? You don't know the pain." He cocks his head. "What would you do to the person that killed her, Shadow? What would you do if something consumed -her-?"

What do you say to the Archmage, Yi Fang?

<In short, I'd do lots of butt stuff>

Something along the lines of not letting it happen in the first place.
>>
>>25517876
I would want to do as you want to do. I understand the feelings, Yi Fang, but I also understand the consequences. I have spent every day of my existence under threat from the powers that be because they seek vengeance on an entire facet of the natural world for a crime committed so long ago, and so shrouded in propaganda, that nobody can be sure what it even was.

I would be obligated to remove myself from the situation and leave it in hands more impartial than my own. I can only do the right as I see the right and commit my cause reverently to the Gods.

"dice gods."

Not sure how IC this all is but I guess we've all got our own interpretations. Shadow always struck me as a stand up guy who knows the right and wants to do it. I think he'd talk all big right now, but it might be a different story when push comes to shove.

We do not let anyone fuck with Abigail.
If they try to, they shall learn true terror.

This shit is terrible. Shadow Master, just coming up with something that doesn't sound as awful as all this drivel.

Working on it.

I like it.

<I do not know. As you have said. I do not know the Pain of loss. I have seen it in others, but never felt it. All I can say that I fear for both myself and my surroundings the day I learn of that pain...>

>>
>>25518053
We say we would, because imo Shadow thinks that would be the right thing to do.

Probably add a caveat in there saying that he probably wouldn't be able to though. Knowing the right and doing it are different things.

>We do not let anyone fuck Abigail.

>>25518057
What would we do to Flint's killer, if he died in battle? How about that dude who raped Auriel?
>>
>>25518067
Here is the best answer: we would punch them in the dick
>>
>>25518109
Also dick punching
>>
>>25518109
Flint's killer?
He would already be dead, slain by Flint.
As for Auriel, well, Michel has already met his fate, has he not?
>>
Start: 37

Servant 22left

Puppet master / Ray of Darkness / a couple from summoning / other

>>25518129
Clearly, we need a facility on the shiprakers for a prison where criminals are punched in the dick for their entire incarceration.
>>
>>25518110
>>25518129

Thirding dick punching.
>>
Can we ask him about the gargoyle necklace now?
>>
>>25518152
>servant
pls no
>>
>>25518135
Well what about whoever actually raped Auriel forever ago?

Implying it wasn't actually Erebus in human form that raped Auriel but just doesn't have memory of it like everything else.
>>
>>25518152
Lets skip the servant and shared resistances for now.
>>
>>25518152
supporting
>>
>>25518135
He's not the one who originally raped Auriel.

...not for lack of trying, though...
>>
>>25518152

Ghost and Silence of the grave was brought up earlier, and summoning 1 is cheap
>>
>>25518191
Why? We want her safe, this is a huge boost to her protection.
>>
>>25518184
Oh, that guy?
He's already ded
>>
>>25518152

summoning no
Ray of darkness yes
>>
>>25518110
>>25518129

Dickpunch mind.

I support groinpunching. Shadow had spent enough time around humans to know it isn;t pleasant for any gender.
>>
>>25518191
>>25518208

Need I remind you that we still need to ask her if she wants it
>>
>>25518208
More XP for us, Adavan and herself can protect her.
>>
>>25518222
And ask Yi Fang if he'd allow it.
>>
>>25518152
>servant

Nope. The only reason we'd spend money on upgrading Abigail is so that she wouldn't need someone to keep her safe. Servant ain't gonna do this, and so we'd be better off upgrading the thing that actually keeps her safe - us.
>>
>>25518152
Voting against.

We need to buy all available resistances anyway, plus Summoning, Ghoul to try and open, path into the Earth tree, and increased magical ability if we can.
>>
>>25518152
Ima say yes to this
>>
Before this thread is over, we need to meditate on our sword shards to see if they are shards of true darkness.
>>
>>25518214
We need to learn necromancy just to bring him back and punch him in the dick.
>>
>>25518222
The D?
>>
>>25518229
He gave us the OK.
>>
>>25518249
I support this notion.
But, if Auriel betrays us, we will learn necromancy and have him rape her again.
>>
>>25518217
actually both me. wouldnt be the first person we dick punched either
>>
>>25518230
servant gives her a better chance at surviving if she is ever without her gaurdians. I can see several ways to do so, especially in Murder!Hogwarts
>>
>>25518240
Wouldn't it be odd if they were considering the writing on them?
>>
>>25518230
Servant + Shared Resistance will make protecting her easier than any boosts we can buy with the xp.

The advantage offered by her getting a defense boost is greater than what can be gained from us boosting up a bit.

Also, we are leaving with Fang and leaving her here in a few weeks. Without Shadow or Fang to protect her.
>>
>>25518152
I like it and Ray of darkness gets my vote.
>>
Disguise
Multishade
Ghoul
Ghost
Fear
Poison
>>
>>25518249
All we need to do to bring him back is Remember...
>>
>>25518226
Adavan already got overpowered by magcock once.
>>
>>25518277
Well, we've never actually seen a shard of darkness, so for all we know they have writing on them.
Maybe we become able to grow a sword from our arm or something.
>>
>>25518152
Voting against Servant.

As long as we get summoning then I'm happy

Against
>>
>>25518152
Support. Abby needs more protection.
>>
<I wouldn't let that happen in the first place.>

Fang gives you a disdainful look. "We all wish we lived in a perfect utopia, Shadow, and here we are, because we are mean, greedy, selfish bastards." He slaps his palm to his desk. "You're invested emotionally. She dies. What is your response? Justice? Even-handedness? Understanding? I seriously doubt it."

<...I do not know. I don't dwell on such things.>

"That's it? You don't know?"

<I ate Michael slowly,> you say. <Piece by piece. He was an insane monster, a rapist and a torturer. So I devoured him while he screamed and begged me for his life. I ensured he died as pitifully as he lived.

<Whatever harmed someone visited upon her would be returned in greater measure.>

"Is that your justice? An eye for an eye?"

<It isn't my justice,> you say. <It is my judgement.>

"At least you have the honest to admit your subjectivity," Fang says. He sighs. "I will heal the knight, against my better judgement."

>you earn 15 humanity (306)
>you earn 4 temerity (221)

<I found this in their home,> you say. You offer him the pendant. <It commands 16 gargoyles.>

Fang smiles, and takes the pendant. He hmms and rolls it between his fingers. Spirit magic glows briefly. "A powerful enchantment. Earth and Spirit. I doubt I could replicate it alone." He smiles his trademark smile. "...the students in the class would have seen the professor bully Abigail. They would have seen her powerful summon. And the very same night, her entire family disappears without a trace, and she arrives at school the next day...wearing the Suen family jewel. Excellent work, Shadow."

<I also learned that Councilor Hae Cheung is formulating a major plot on her life. The Suens were just a distraction from the real threat.>

>con't
>>
>>25518152
Against, because whenever this shit goes up, my eyes glaze over due to the constant "NUH-UH!" "YUH-HUH" arguements.
>>
>People not wanting Abigail to survive
>We just murdered an entire family that plotted against her
>We learned of others doing the same

wut
>>
>>25518230
>Servant ain't gonna do this, and so we'd be better off upgrading the thing that actually keeps her safe - us.

The thing is, it will, though. We've been over this already. Check out the last thread
>>
>>25518281
>>25518275
She has zero chance of surviving without us, basically. She's a nine year old girl. No matter what we buy, she's always going to be fucked without us.

For the exp we could buy tons of shit that imo would make defending her substantially easier. Like Tao. Or Schattenkrieg. Or save up for Eclipse. The strategy of defending her will always be "hide her and run like buggery until she's safe". We've already got a concealment spell for that.
>>
>>25518152

support but no summoning
>>
>>25518152
Support, minus Fear. Spend 8 XP on The Sense to help out Abby some more.
>>
>>25518371
she would share our resistances to magic, a portion of speed and stelath as well. If she can dodge and hide then she can survive.
>>
>>25518152
Ascertain whether Abigail even wants to be servanted first. Shared resistance would increase the value of Servant considerably but if we don't use it it's wasted exp.
>>
>>25518381
whats with the summoning hate?
>>
>>25518362
>Translate this as:

If you all don't support my view, you want Abigail dead!

Are you a baby killer!?!?

Cut that shit out.
>>
>>25518362
>People not wanting Abigail to survive
Way to strawman, dipshit.
>>
>>25518359
<She doesn't wear the jewel. I want her to be a normal little girl, or as normal as circumstances allow, not as a monster, Fang.>
>>
>>25518381
We're going to have to dip into summoning eventually, it unlocks cool stuff in other trees.
>>
>>25518391
Okay, I wouldn't mind knocking off Fear to get The Sense.
>>
>>25518394
But for 25 exp we could unlock a ton of other stuff more useful than some minor buffs.

Get Yi to enchant some shit for the same effect.

I wanna go Summoning.
>>
>>25518152
Add Fear, wait with Shared Resistance until we know Abby will be servanted.
>>
>>25518453

Eventually but not right now.
>>
>>25518445
wut? Fang's plan is sound. It will also make it so the children see her as someone not to cross, and thus a potential ALLY.
>>
>>25518152
Voting against this.


It seems a flaw to this whole thing is that when something gets voted down, someone brings it back up until he can samefag enough to get it passed through pure persistence.

I say we put a moratorium on votes for servanting for a certain amount of threads to keep this from happening.
>>
>>25518371
>>25518468
Buffing ourselves has to make it so we can prevent more damage than servanting her will.

And it won't, purely because we won't always be there.

It will also help against ambushes and in situations if Abby is separated from us.
>>
>>25518445
I support this. We may have given up on hiding her, but goddamn it, she will be appreciated and have friends, not be considered a killer.
>>
>>25518152

We still want Tao.

THIS is why i've been saying SAVE IT till we know what we're doing.

Servant+Shared Resistance if abby consents. THEN save for Tao.

If not, then what?
>>
>>25518495
If that's the case, it can wait until the end of the month.
>>
>>25518468
The magic trees are of limited use right now. Better to concentrate on finishing the physical ones.

>>25518495
yup, this. We aren't going to be always around her. What if someone hired an assassin to sneak in while we were kiloing the Suen family?
>>
>>25518486
This was never officially voted on. It was discussed and now it seems that different people have come because it's 12 hours later almost.
>>
>>25518510
>Save for Tao
We could buy that now.
>>
>>25518477
Or they would ostracize her further...
>>
>>25518445
>being this naive
>implying the effect on other students Yi described wouldn't be just what we want to make others think twice before turning against Abby
>>
>>25518495
If we're not there she's dead.

She is nine years old. All the passive buffs in the world won't save her from dedicated assassins.

>>25518519
Physical is fine too. Shadow must grow larger.
>>
>>25518530
you can't get much further then what they are doing. Not a single one talks to her.
>>
>>25518536
>If we're not there she's dead.
Well, then she's dead in a month when Fang leaves with us to go get rid of the parasite and Abby is left here.
>>
I was for summoning her now but then I learned at the moment she only gets a small boost in speed and strength and a large one in stealth. I still say we should invest in upgrades for servant though
>>
>>25518536
>all the passive buffs in the world
I don't think that's true.
But yes, servanting her is a bad idea.
>>
I hope if the samefags finally manage to push Servanting through and the playerbase decides it is enough to leave Abigail alone, SM punishes us for it.

It would be deserved.
>>
>>25518565
Or we hide her or take her with us or send her to Haven on vacation to meet Mr Shadow's friends.
>>
>>25518486
I'd like to wait at least until we have a chance to meditate on the sword shards and the shadow shards together, in case they unlock the center darkness.

If it comes down to servant upgrades, The Sense is the most practical to start with, as it assists in detecting danger and has other uses.

Shared resist would be nice but expensive, especially if it adds to their resists instead of replacing them.

Shadow eater would provide a means of self-healing, which is incredibly useful for those who can't regenerate.
>>
Let's save servanting for when we have to go, please.
>>
>>25518583
That won't happen because Fang's setting her up to rule Archon.
>>
>>25518570

Nah man. Abby is pretty much destined to grow up to be a dictator and powerful sorceress. She needs to be raised accordingly and given the means of intimidating those below her and protecting herself from harm.
>>
>>25518536
>increases speed
>increases stealth
If they can't catch or find her they can't kill her.
>shared resistances: Spirit level 2
If she can take a single hit and survive then thats better then dying immediately.

>>25518583
Yi Fang isn't going to let us take her
>>
>>25518527

The ENTIRE reason we've been doing this sidequest is to open up the option of servanting abby.
Not for any waifuing, but because yi fang is essentially offering to pay for it, AND we're in town to help flint out.

Also, I'm not a samefag. I was persuaded by last thread's upsides to support it. In particular, shared resistanes is -amazing-, because it makes abby from SquishyHumanResists to BuiltShadowTough.

The entire reason this quest chain started is becau
