>I apologise for the restart but I'm a huge faggot, so please rape my face>previous threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Academy%20Quest>twitter: https://twitter.com/Archmagisterkun>Character sheet: http://pastebin.com/aEfAsXNX>Rules: If I don't specify what to roll, just roll 1d100; I'll take the best of the first five, with the exception of crit fails which can be overridden with crit successes.Your name is Hairy McTerrorcastle. You are a student at the Fifth Circle Academy, specialising in the School of Summoning under the buxom and bouncy Magister Pythianne.Your adventure has seen you talk to Imps, watch a man walk through a table, meet a strange and possibly dangerous otherwordly being, enter the whimsical land that is the Academy Archives. You were invited to an experiment with Pythianne, but before that, there was the issue of a strange letter given to you and Jaqul.After joining up with the odd and strange 'Fifth Circle' who claim to be the source of the Academy's name, and seek to nurture Magic, you went off to get some rest for tomorrow's experiment.The experiment, you think, was a smashing success. Not only did you reach the Entropic Plane and encounter a new entity, you made him(It?) your friend! After dancing with him, and promising him he'll never be lonely again and that you'll never forget him, he seemed to take on a more physical form.With the knowledge he granted you, you learned that the Entropic Plane is the Plane of 'Forgotten things'. Exerting your will, you manage to cause some sort of portal to another part of the Plane, where you met up with Pythianne.Declaring your love for her in passing, she informed you that the experiment was over and it was time to go - you returned to the real world, but not without learning how to summon your new friend, 'Oblitus Luna'.
The familiar pull of leaving Astral Travel leaves you feeling drained.You're back to your place in the Magic Circle, Pythianne in front of you holding your hands, and Magister Lyssa hovering by the side."Well? How'd it-" Before she can finish her sentence, there's a knocking on the door, and it swings open.The Archmagister strides in, bounce in his step. For once he doesn't appear to have anything strange about him.He smiles at you... but says nothing. Pythianne squeals in excitement and begins gushing about the 'incredible success'.You glance at the Magisters. Pythianne is babbling on about how wonderful and exciting the trip was, and Lyssa looks faintly surprised. Jasper is... Jasper is unreadable. He's smiling softly at ever-... no, it's just you. He's smiling softly at you. You can't tell what he's thinking though... It's starting to scare you a little actually. You feel like he knows something you don't which is true, he probably does, but in the sense that what he knows directly affects you. And probably not in the good way."Hello sir." You greet him quietly, bowing your head a little in deference. His smile twitches a little. "Hello, McTerrorcastle."Pythianne is still going on about the ramifications of your actions - something about revolutionary, and groundbreaking. Lyssa seems to be tuning her out, nodding at appropriate times - you get the feeling she's used to this kind of thing.>Actions?
>>26703943Ask Jasper if he wants to meet Obby.
>>26703943Summon Oblitus Luna.
>>26703943"Why so cheerful Archmagister?"
>>26703987Why is everyone so happy so just summon an entity we will have no control over? It could just be the worst idea ever.
>>26704014We have no control over it? We told it to grow legs and it grew legs. It's a synthesis of lost memories and our will.Obby may not be bound, but I trust him more than Bowie.
Reposting crazy theory - If someone has more knowledge of Tarot cards, mind helping out?1.The Entropic realm houses memories of past - AND FUTURE. Denizins are major Arcana of the Tarot decki. The Hermit(Vizier?) - On Pythainne's first visit she met a man with much knowledge of poems and books -The Hermit (IX) Stands alone on a mountain with a lantern -Symbolized acheivement and growth -Has reached higher awareness -Impact: Pythainne learned? No other data.ii. The Hanged man - On Our (Hairy McTerrorcastle's) first journey, we met a man hanging by his foot from a tree -The Hanged Man(XII) Is a man hanging by his ankle from a living tree -Symbolizes letting go, patience, inner harmony -Impact: We let go and danced, harmonized so we could come back the the entropic realmiii. The Moon - On our trip together with Pythainne, we reached up and poked the moon, to find it a humanoid being. -The Moon(XVII) Is a moon hanging in the sky between two great pillars, appears to be shedding into the water, a domesticated dog and a wolf howl at it -Symbolizes Fantasy, physchological conflict, Imagination, Illusion, Anxiety, Romanticism -Impact: We appear to have confessed our love for our teacher. See above symbolism.iiii. The Sandman - Found by the original plane explorer. No theories on this guy yet.v. The Gnarled man - Jasper meets him in the memories we are given. Still trying to figure this guy out. Gnarled?
Rolled 47>>26703943Try to read Jasper's mind and/or face
>>26703973>>26703991>>26703996>>26704051You can't get a read on him. He seems cheerful, but you can tell something's going on behind his face. You're starting to become aware that there has always been something going on behind his face now that you think about it - behind all his eccentricity. He's not the Archmagister for nothing."You seem very cheerful Archmagister." You say to him quietly, whilst Pythianne goes on and on in the background. He smiles a little wider. "I am." Is all he says in response. Okay, yeah, you're getting a little worried."Would you like to meet my new friend?" His smile twitches. "I'm afraid that will have to wait. Pythianne should be running out of breath in... three... two..." On cue, she pauses, taking a deep breath."Pythia, I do believe that's enough." He says calmly, voice cutting through the air with a sharpness that belies it's softness."Firstly, I do believe congratulations are in order - well done, McTerrorcastle, and a good show by you too Pythianne, Lyssa. But I'm afraid I have to spirit our dear student away for a small talk over tea." He holds his hand out to you. "Don't worry, it's not bad." He smiles at you again.Pythianne seems a little perplexed, and Lyssa just seems curious.>Take his hand?
Rolled 2>>26704051This. Just this, we attempt to get in his head. Imagine how he would be thinking and try to match our thoughts so we can just slink in. Or brute force who cares! We're HAIRY MCTERRORCASTLE master of all magic, except alchemy.
>>26704110Obviously knows we know that we know he knows of our knowledge of the secret know-how.Let's go.
>>26704146>>26704134You take his hand. The warping sensation you felt before wreaks through you, and you find yourself deposited in a soft, plush arm chair, in front of a small table.A pair of teacups hover a few inches above the table, a floating teapot pouring in steaming tea."Would you like some sugar with yours? Cream?" He holds his hands out to... do something?Pointing a finger at his own cup... a small jet of milk begins streaming out at a gradual pace, pouring into his tea. Huh.>Actions?
>>26704280Aww shit nigga did that nigga's finger just projectile lactate into the cup? Awww hell naw.
Rolled 70>>26704280summon milk into our own tea as well! We need to show this nigga up.
>>26704280Uhh. Yeah. Sure. Get some sugar and milk and such and put it in the tea. Once we get the tea all sorted out and have taken a sip, ask him what is up with this here.
Rolled 22>>26704317Summon the milk!!!
>>26704280Just go along with the tea party.However take note that we need to figure out how to do that later
>>26704280No milk or sugar. We drink tea the way it was meant to be drunk.
>>26704280"Nah I'm good"On a side note, I saw something interesting while rereading the last thread. When we saw Luna's memories, when he meet Pythaine, instead of refering to her as 'it' as he did us and Jasper, he referered to her as 'Creature of false life and undeath'.
>>26704351>>26704317>>26704349Your tempted to summon your own milk... but you have no idea how to begin with that. "I'll take mine as is." He nods at you.A pair of sugar cubes appear from... the teapot. They flop out of it's spout, landing in his cup with nary a splash. He twirls his finger lightly, and the tea in both cups begin to stir."McTerrorcastle, do you know why the Fifth Circle Academy was founded?" He raises his cup to his lips, taking a sip as he speaks. "Ahhh... Lavender.">Actions?
Rolled 86>>26704422"...mask guy?"
>>26704422Take a sip of ours.I'd heard it was to ensure those with Magical Potential were properly trained and set on the right path?
>>26704422No, but i have a feeling that you might.
>>26704422"I assume it was to give young mages like me a chance to learn in a more safe and controlled enviroment, no?"
>>26704470>>26704446"... Mask guy?" He raises an eyebrow at you. "Er, nevermind. Just reminded me of someone."You raise your cup to your lips and sip it. Lavender? This isn't lavender. It's... more rosemary. Kind of like your mother used to make before you left home."Isn't it to ensure those with magical potential were properly trained in a safe and controlled environment?" He nods."Basically, yes. The Academy was founded during the War of the Wizards era, and it's goal was to give those with magical potential the opportunity to learn without being beholden to older Wizards. Many of the Magi of the time took apprentices, but many of them were not interested in the idea of training those who would one day surpass them." He takes another deep drink of his tea."The Academy's purpose has always been to protect the Students. From themselves, from other Wizards, from any source that might do them harm."You sip your own tea. Definitely rosemary. "... Am I in danger then, Archmagister?"He laughs lightly. "Heavens, McTerrorcastle. We're all in danger.">Actions?
what are the ??? on our character sheet? I see we have a bonus to ???? and a 20 in one field of ????
>>26704422Ensure that the next generation of unholy overlords are properly trained not to be an evil overlord?
>>26704551From what? Other than other wizards?
>>26704557What are they indeed?You already know there are forbidden schools of Magic... you just haven't figured out which ones go where.
Rolled 65>>26704551"From what? Or who?"
>>26704406>he referered to her as 'Creature of false life and undeath'....Well shit>>26704551"So...why the rush to talk to us in private, sir?"
>>26704551Exactly what are we in danger from, sir? Ourselves?
>>26704587sorry I only just joined the rp and i'm reading part I right now
>>26704617>>26704601>>26704582"From what? Or who?" He sips his tea again. He places the empty cup down, and the teapot begins to fill itself again."McTerrorcastle, how much damage do you think one of the Magisters could do if they decided to? If, say, Magister Gareth, Ranafiel or Pythianne decided they wanted to destroy everything?" He's giving you a serious look now."Do you think the Empire could stop them? How many lives do you think would be lost if Magister Alaine or Vann turned their talents to war?"He doesn't wait for answer. "The answer is innumerable. The Empire likely could not recover - do not get the wrong idea, the Empire could and would put a stop to their rampage... except maybe Ranafiel." He refills his teacup. "I don't even know if I could stop Ranafiel... but that's beside the point. The point is when a Mage reaches the level of power common amongst the Magisters... they're no longer something that can be stopped."He sips his refilled tea. "Do you know what is the most common cause of deaths, amongst Magi in this age?"You don't like where this is going.>Actions?
I wasn't thrilled with starting the thread over but I must say this one's proceeded very smoothly, so okay.>>26704617seconding this response
>>26704696A lust for power?
>>26704696>[Worried look intensifies]This is my vote for the action. Worried look.
>>26704696I daresay it's time to let him know there's a magister running a secret society. Voting to tell him about the sekret clahb we just joined.
>>26704741he just asked us about the fifth circle. he probably knows that we joined it.
>>26704741Voting against. He obviously knows.
>>26704696Well quite obviously we are the main reason for magister death.What we actually do is ask "what?"On another note we gotta practice that force magic.
>>26704696Doeasn't the Empire employ Royal Mages as part of their military that are on par in power with the teachers at the academy?
>>26704696Well, I'm hoping it's not summary execution.
>>26704696>VannSleepy guy that sees the future?Well now I'm intrigued. How would he even war?
And this is why we should never have joined your secret little shitty club.
>>26704806By telling his side what the other side is going to do
>>26704806You seriously can't imagine how knowing the future would be bloody useful in a war? I can't imagine anything more powerful than knowing exactly how to use my limited forces in the best possible way to achieve victory.
Does transmutation fall under alchemy?
>>26704824>>26704829Japser was just talking about a one man war / rampage. I don't see seeing the future as powerful enough to be one of the 3 magisters that get name dropped for this.
>>26704723>>26704726>>26704728You're face is very worried now. "... Lust for power? Other magi?"He lets his teacup hover in the air in front of him. "The former is part of the reason, but officially, the most common cause of death amongst Magi who leave the Academy is 'Magical accident'." He makes air quotations at this. "Mistakes are always made, and sometimes when you're dealing with magic, mistakes are fatal. From official statistics, one could say that the safest place to practice and learn Magic is the Academy.""... But that's not true." You murmur, staring at him. You're getting an idea of where this is going."Oh, it is true. You'll be safest here. Well, YOU will. Some of the other students will never encounter a 'magical accident'. They lack the potential." He drains his tea again."I'm going to be blunt, McTerrorcastle. You're on a fast track to being put on the Empire's hit list. Mages are like trees. As students, we're weak. Once grown, we are almost infallible. The Empire does not want Magic to continue. They believe it's too risky - it takes one, just one rogue Mage, and thousands can die. The only reason most of the Magisters are still alive is because they couldn't get rid of us if they tried." He leans back in his chair."You? Not so much. Vann told me what would happen if you went into the Experiment. But you have two choices. Publish your results... or keep it under wraps." You swallow a little."If you publish, you'll get fame and fortune... and attention. The Empire will see you as something to deal with. If you don't... well, they'll probably see you as something to deal with at some point in your life."You sip your tea. You didn't ask for this."You don't have to decide now. I'm sure you have other questions you want to ask.">Actions?
>>26704855If I could reliably tell the future 1 week in advance, I could singlehandedly start world war 3 and get 90% of humanity killed. Starting with the stock market to get credibility, then going to pakistan/india, then getting China, then russia involved, then Europe and back to the USA.
>>26704903>you never asked for thisU- unatco?
>>26704855How would you catch him? He knows what your going to do to stop him before you do. He can see the future, why kill a thousand people when you can kill the one that causes millions of deaths with his demise.
>>26704903I suggest we keep it secret, keep it safe.also as for a question to ask Jasper, see >>26704780
"I am Hairy McTerrorcastle, and I hide from no one."
>>26704903Well lucky us, there's nothing we really want from the publishing itself, we just want to get better at summoning.Ask him the best way to pursue our studies while keeping a low profile.
>>26704903can't I just file a paper with a 50-60 year moratorium so it doesn't come out for a few years? yet I still get credit for the discovery?
>>26704903I wasn't planning on publishing this anyway. What I know is what I know and until what I know is a lot more I'm not publishing anything.
>>26704903this Empire sounds like shit lets overthrow it ASAP
>>26704903I'm sorry sir, I can't die yet, but I don't want to steal Pythianne's glory.
>>26704940>>26704956"... Doesn't the Empire have Royal Mages? I read about a Court Mage once..." Jasper snorts."You think the Empire would trust a powerful Mage to be kept close to them? They might have powerful Healers, maybe Diviners but never a Mage actually capable of truly fighting.""Well, how do I study without drawing attention to myself?" He pauses, and shrugs."Keep your head down, and try not to do anything huge. Like going into the Entropic Plane and learning how to summon one of it's Aspects." He gives you an amused stare. "Did you still want me to meet him? He sounds nice.">Actions?
>>26704943>34 in Force, 27 in summoning>showing off in front of an empire hostile to magesNope, nope nope.
>>26704903I think I'm going to keep it quiet, sir. Imperial assassins do not a happy Hairy make."
>>26705024>>26704957ask about this please
>>26705024"You've actually met him before, Archmagister. He remembered your visit. If you're interested in seeing him I could summon him now. Officially, though, it's a terrible shame that the experiment didn't produce any results."
>>26705024Sure, let's introduce him. What's the worst that could happen?
>>26705024"Is the school, I dunno, protected from the 'maybe Diviners'? I'd prefer not being paranoid about that."
>>26705024Actually, why don't we get Pythianne to publish it.She's probably powerful enough to not be messed with, and when the 'empire' eventually find out it was us, we should be pretty powerful.
>>26704957Why care about credit? The important thing is magical power, not academic street cred.
>>26705024Sorry sir, I can't risk dying yet.I've yet to confess properly to Pythianne.
>>26705095Implying we don't want it all
>>26705100inb4 Vann puts a hit on us
>>26705095This anon understands us. We seek power! Not credit from the magic community, ironically we're exactly the reason the empire wants to assassinate promising mages.
>>26705100I'd prefer to give that a rest. I mean, really.
>>26705152I agree. It was just some randumb act that unfortunately had a 100 behind it.
>>26705133Street cred flows from real power, not the other way around. Patience, my young McTerrorcastle.
>>26705075thirding for this
>>26704957>>26705077>>26705075"Can't I just file it with a moratorium? Like, 50-60 years later and still get credit?" Jasper blinks. He chuckles. "Sure, if you want. It's your paper. I'm just telling you what will happen if you file it now."You nod, standing up to prepare your summoning. "You've met him before, Archmagister. He remembered your visit." The Archmagister laughs, smiling at you. He goes to say something then pauses."Yes and no, really. I guess you could say I did meet him and I didn't..." He chuckles at you. "I'll show you. You summon and I'll summon."You blink, and begin the Summoning spell in sync with the Archmagister. His version is very similar...Black sand begins to whip around you, slowly forming a solid shape in front of you. By the Magister, dust and... paper scraps whirl about, slowly condensing into a physical shape.Soon, Oblitus Luna is standing by you and... the Librarian?They stare at each other silently. Oblitus cocks his head to the side and glances at you. "... You remembered me.""Well! Isn't he a pretty boy then? Love the style." Jasper laughs, still standing by the Librarian, who just gives you a vacant wide-eyed stare.>Actions?
>>26705100I'm enjoying that little romance subplot, lets add this in somewhere when talking to him.
Once we're too fucking big to even think about touching, we start throwing it in the Empire's face."IT WAS ME ALL ALONG! SUCK IT! I RUSED YOU ALL!!!!!!"
>>26704035Rather, I think all of these creatures are the same being that have taken on different forms to passing travelers. This is based on the fact that the one being we met had memories of all the recorded journeys to the entropic plane that we've read or heard about.
>>26705178>>26705152Pythianne's worth wooing, but our confession was ill timed and poorly handled. We could definitely play it cool for a few months... or years.
>>26705241That's what I meant by it. I don't mind going for Pythia, but this constant dogging on the subject is fucking grating.
>>26705217Well since you summoned him to run the library. Maybe you could tell us where the study rooms are? All he says is left, bloody confusing instructions.And to Obby of course we didn't forget you! How could we?
>>26705217Oh wow. That explains so much.(pause for a second)I suppose it wouldn't really be my paper anyway, would it.
>>26705263Personally I want to get back to finding a nice Succubus companion for lewd humor potential>>26705217Whelp. We're not the first to figure it out, huh. Ask him to explain how he figured it out and if he has any notes he's willing to share if we promise to keep them on the down low.
>>26705217Shit. This means we abandoned the Hanged Man. I guess this means we should visit him sometime
>>26705343Weren't you paying attention last thread? Obby IS/WAS the Hanged Man. And the Sandman. And, very possibly, the entirety of the Entropic Plane. Or just a fraction of it. I dunno. It's magic.
>>26705217Ah, I guess we've confirmed that there is in fact more than one being in the entropic plane.>>26705343On that note, I say we make the entropic plane our specialty. The raw power of imagination and the death of all things is at our fingertips. Why waste time dribbling with demons when we can master the true physical reality of the universe?Not that we have to abandon demons altogether. Bowie is still a bro, and a potentially useful bro.
>>26705343Sounds like a plan for the next time we visit the Entropic plane.OH, ARCHMAGISTER. We need to ask Jasper if it's cool if we trade some human names for names of demons with Haztoraxifeliv.
>>26705383No, the Archmagister just proved that false by summoning the librarian at the same time as Orbi
>>26705398>>26705383>>26705343It's weird. We manifested something that seems to be multiple things.Why don't we ask the Archmagister about these observations? He probably knows something or other about it.
>>26705398>Why waste time dribbling with demons when we can master the true physical reality of the universe?Because conventional magical combat has just been strongly hinted to be important to the PLOT. Dat empire's gonna come down but not without a fight. Luna's cool, but in a fight, who knows? Especially in our plane.I wish there was something we could summon that would stay invisible and follow us around, watching our back. Not Haztoraxifeliv, but someone we can summon easily for longer periods of time.
>>26705416Hell no he didn't, he summoned another part of Orbi.Or he summoned another Orbi.Or they are a hivemind.OR they simply share each others memories and think of them as their own, they seemed pretty good at showing memories to us after all.Lets ask him.
Anyways, from what he has just told us, it would seem like that dark brotherhood thing is actually a REALLY FUCKING GOOD IDEA.Awesome place to experiment without getting put on a hit list.
>>26705294>>26705300>>26705321>>26705419"Oh wow. That explains so much." You say, staring at the Librarian. That's why he's so weird and... magical."Hey, since you summoned him to run the Library, could you tell us where the study rooms are? All he says is left."Jasper glances at the Librarian and starts laughing. Once he finishes, he wipes a tear away from his eye. "Well, nobody knows. I've tried asking Timateus here," He slaps the Librarian on the back who doesn't react, "And all he says is 'Left' as you've noted. After some exploring, my only conclusion is that the study rooms have left. Completely.""... I don't suppose you could explain what this is?"Jasper sits back down, the Librarian standing still. "You can go now, Timateus. I'm sure you have more books to sort." The Librarian vanishes before your eyes, silently. Oblitus lurks at your side, shifting slightly."If I'm perfectly honest, I'm not entirely sure. Seeing as you've ah, bonded with one, I can assume you are aware of the nature of the Entropic Plane?" You nod."Well, er, Oblitus here and Timateus, the Librarian are... I suppose you could them Aspects. It's what I call them anyway." He studies Luna carefully. "This is mostly conjecture, seeing as getting a straight word out of Timateus is impossible, but they represent 'Forgotten Things'. Timateus, for example, embodies... 'Forgotten Lore'." He studies Luna a bit closely. The entity just inches away slightly, a tad uneasy."I have no idea what your friend might embody. It's likely something that you yourself possess a strong connection to. They only really bond with people that share a connection to their Aspect, I think. I run an Academy - it's always been my goal. I love knowledge!" He giggles."So, McTerrorcastle... do you mind if I call you Castle? Such a mouthful. What Oblitus Luna embodies is likely what you yourself embody most.">Actions?
>>26705416>>26705469>You summon and I'll summon>His version is very similarI imagine it's more of a blank conceptual slate, formed by scattered remains of memories, both of the plane itself, and of those who contact the fruit.
>>26705517>Embodiment of swagger.No, seriously. Castle thinks he's the best fucking thing ever.
>>26705572I don't even know. Stubborn insistence that things should be how we think they should be?Or SMUG
>>26705517Refer to >>26705517
>>26705572Correction he knows!
>>26705572So much this.otherwise, I say Luna should be the embodiment of potential.
>>26705517Well, the only thing we've really done, other than relentlessly study is make friends. I mean, sure, the only reason we went into summoning in the first place is titty-sensei and the desire to summon earth-shattering demonic monstrosities to take over the world...but, when we summoned our first imp we just..made friends with it.We're friendship. The most powerful aspect of all.
>>26705517Give Obby a one arm brohug type deal and say something like "Well, that's great news, Obby! That means you're the best thing ever!"
>>26705517Ask if he minds trading names with infernals.Other than that I think we're good to go. Thank him for the advice and lets be on our way, we've got MAGIC to study. I'd love to spend the next two days studying the books we've borrowed in depth.
>>26705628Hundred times this
IT MUST BE BREASTS!It even started out as a spherical object after all!
Uh, I'm liking this friendship thing. I vote for it
>>26705627>when we summoned our first imp we just..made friends with it.By the gods, we're so great.>>26705628We have a winner.We just embody the self-absorbed glorious bastard who actually after a lot of huffing and puffing will eventually go back and do the right thing. And not because it's the right thing, but because it was convenient, and the villain was annoying us.
>>26705627>We're friendship. The most powerful aspect of all.Lauren Faust was right all along
>>26705627>We're friendship. The most powerful aspect of all.
>>26705628A million times this.
>>26705656We like breasts, but we don't EMBODY the nature of breasts. No, thats Pythianne
>>26705663We're like an anti-villain who's tsundere for Good. There needs to be more characters like this in media.
>>26705681Dude, have you ever watched anime before? Friendship is essentially raw energy that can be transformed into any form imaginable. Even laser beams.Especially laser beams.
Everyone, consult the Arcana.The moon is to represent the shadow of one's self, and one's fear of the future and the present, as well as a variety of other things.
What are tech levels like for the common people in this setting?
>>26705638>>26705628>>26705572You sling an arm over Oblitus's shoulder. He's a little shorter then you, and a tad thinner. He gives you a curious look with his one eye. "Good news Obby! That means your best thing ever!" The Archmagister laughs as Oblitus gives you a confused stare. "... Oh..." Is all it says, quietly."Now, I'm sure Pythianne is getting worried that I'm eating you or something." He gives you a warm smile, and gets up again. "You'll have to excuse me though - I need to put on my bunny ears for my run with Ranafiel."He ushers you out of his office, and closes the door behind you.>Return to Pythianne?
>>26705728Mostly medieval, nearing the discovery of gunpowder.
>>26705628This and then after:"You know, magister...I like magic and knowledge too. And I don't like being assassinated by empires. Sounds painful. You're obviously invested in the academy, and don't want magic to just go poof...so, can I take those together and assume that you'd be alright if there were more powerful mages around supporting the school?"Let's get permission to be a badass from the top.
>>26705731return to the tits
>>26705731Hell yeah, need to talk with Pythianna about our awesome new buddy!
>>26705710Exactly: Friendship is like Magic.
>>26705731Yes. Also make sure the Archmagister doesn't forget the fluffy tail or he won't be able to reach max speed.
>>26705731Yea, sure.Is Obby human looking enough for him to just be around like the Librarian is?
>>26705739Well shit, I was thinking 1920s levels of tech. I'm not that guy though.>ActionYeah lets check in with Pythianne, compare notes on our experience.
>>26705763He's wrapped up in cloth, but otherwise looks human. At least, he has a human shape. You don't know what he looks like under the cloth... if the cloth can even come off.
>>26705731Poor Obbie. Let's head back to Pythianne.Also, >>26705739 who needs force magic when you can fill their brain with lead from 500 paces?
>>26705731>>26705746>closes the door behind you.Dammit. Oh well, let's head back. We'll have to see if Jaqul and that slightly annoying faggot that studies general magic got up to any shenanigans. And maybe Ariane brewed up some weed, yo.
>>26705762This, a bunny can't run fast without his tail to balance him
>>26705715If it's Arcana based, we're obviously the Fool. The zero-sum. The third option. Both the lowest and the highest.
>>26705791The one with unlimited potential
>>26705774So, he looks like the Kishin Asura? We good then.
>>26705791>The zero-sum.Let's not, CHiM just isn't worth it. I don't think Vehk really enjoyed divinity anyway.
>>26705731Let's go back. I'm sure Pythianne will squee over Obby
>>26705783>>26705781>>26705772You begin heading back to the Summoning Chambers. Oblitus gets a few interested looks, but nothing truly major. He seems uneasy with the attention, and sticks close to you, almost like a lost puppy.You imagine he has no idea what to do in this situation.Reaching Pythianne's office, you find her filling out scroll after scroll of parchment. "Oh! You're back! I was just writing up the experiment, getting it all ready for publishing... er, if we are publishing. Are we publishing?" Oblitus fidgets with his arm-cloth. "Oh! OH! You summoned him! Oh he's so adorable look at his little cloth! What does he look like under, do you mind if I remove them dear, no, it's okay, what a beautiful eye," She goes on and on, poking and pulling and tugging at Oblitus, who gives you a pleading look.>Publish?>Actions?
Hey Archy! Is it possible to do more than one class? Going in with Ranafiel for Force Magic as a double major sounds like a good idea, considering even Jasper is doubtful about being able to drop him.
>>26705858I think it fit's nicely, as we have the power to become whatever we want, and the lowest/highest incorporates the rolls we make.BUT ENOUGH METAGAMING, LET US ENJOY WIZARDRY>>26705863Well, she has already seen him, but I'm sure she will squee anyways.
>>26705887You can take tutoring - I think someone asked this before. You can only 'specialise' in one class at a time though. You can switch.
>>26705885Tell her that if she wishes to publish it that she makes no mention of you nor Obby, at least for now.
>>26705885Hm...this is incredibly risky, but...what if we have a demon publish for us--setting up intermediaries so we can get the dosh without the risk--or at least, not "entire empire after us" levels. The information alone, and the potential chaos it would cause...some demons would love that.
>>26705885Do NOT PUBLISH. There will be no attention on us until we want it on us, and by that time we'll have some real power.
>>26705885If you do publish. Can you please not mention me? Also please stop harassing him, he's uncomfortable enough already.
>>26705885>Publish?"After that talk with the Archmagister, I don't think it's the best idea for me to put my name on something like this just yet.">Actions?Ehh. Not sure. I guess just keep talking about the publishing issue? Maybe mention that we might do it anonymously or something. I dunno.
Publish!? Hairy McTerrorcastle needs no validation from his peers!
>>26705885Publish! We are Harry McTerrorcastle, we face our enemies head on!
>>26705885No publishing for us. If she wants to publish that's fine but keep our name out of it for now.Let's reassure Luna and let him know we'll see him soon, then let's try out our Summon Imp 2 and chat with Haztoraxifeliv some more. We can give him Ranafiel's name, that should be worth quite a lot. Let's get that succubus name.
>>26705885"You can publish, Archmagister, but...leave me and Oblitus out of it.""What! How come?!""...the archmagister said it would be better not to stir the pit with the empire.">and then, we lead into the serious shit. It's time we got some answers from the professor."Professor...what exactly are the boundaries, here? The archmagister wants magic to continue. He wants to learn, and teach. But apparently, the empire wants to keep magic contained, and they're willing to do it by force. What am I supposed to do? Learn in secret until I'm as strong as you, or him? Make pacts with demons just so I can protect myself?"I don't know how far I should go. How far I'm supposed to go. How far I even need to go. I feel like no one's telling me anything. I feel like I'm playing a game, and I only know half the rules. Less than that."
>>26705947What an unsmooth way to tell her to stop bugging him.
>>26705964>stir the pit*stir the pot
>>26705958Spies!!! He's trying to get us killed!!! We are not this puny Harry, we are the one and only HAIRY MCTERRORCASTLE!
>>26705947About as smooth as a sandpaper condom...
>>26705885"Eventually...I don't think I am ready for what could come with it. The Archmagister explain to me comes with too much notoriety in the empire."
>>26705885Don't publish.Or at least don't take full credit. Fame, fortune, and power will one day be ours. But right now let's not make ourselves a target at 15.
>>26705958>HarryYou damn plebeian.>>26705947>Also please stop harassing himLet's just subtly step between her and him while we try to pin her down somewhat with this:>>26705964
>>26705964HAH! Hairy McTerrorcastle does not turn into a whimpering puppy in the eyes of opposition! No, we take it with swaggering stride and pure awesome.However, being awesome does not mean we can't be devious, cunning and most importantly patient! There is a time for everything, and now is not that time.
>>26705989Or maybe smooth in a weird obtuse way for a weird and obtuse woman. We're showing care about our summon, what more could she want from a man other than caring for his precious summons.
>>26706001>Let's just subtly step between her and himTHIS THIS THIS
>>26705998NOT READY? We are Hairy McTerrorcastle! Do you have no shame? If we aren't ready, the last thing we do is admit it.And stop with those ellipsises, they are unmanly and make us seem uncertain about ourselves.
>>26705952>>26705947>>26705961"You can Publish, just... leave me and Oblitus out of it, please?" She gives you a surprised look that softens slightly."Oh. So Jasper was worried about that..." She murmurs. She nods. "That's understandable."You take a deep breath and step between Oblitus and Pythianne. "Professor what exactly are the boundaries here? The Archmagister wants magic to continue but the Empire wants to keep it contained and they're willing to do it by force... What am I supposed to do?"She pauses, sighing deeply. "I... Whatever you think is best, really. We Magisters will do our best to protect you, and any other student that needs it. If you feel you need to get more Magic to be safe, then ask and we can help you. Just try not to make yourself a target?" She gives you a small smile and pats your shoulder.She looks away, staring at her desk. "... Vann's been acting odd lately. I'm a little worried something's coming up. The last time he started fidgeting around like this, a third year accidentally summoned something they shouldn't have and well... it didn't end well.">Actions?
>>26706003>swaggering stride and pure awesomeWhoa, whoa, whoa, anon, please. Hairy McTerrorcastle is the baddest dude around.However, endearing ourselves to our mentor and hunting down answers is also important. If we're really going to be the man, we have to know when not to wear a giant badge on our sleeve.For example, we cooked for our acquaintances to earn their friendship. We are capable of subtlety.
>>26706020>>26706001Let Pythianne do as she wants.
>>26705964110% this. My vote goes here.
>>26706050>ask for full story on the incident
>>26706051No, but it doesn't mean we have to turn into a dude with a speech inpediment
Is Pythianne with Vann?
>>26706105Vann is Pythianne's brother.
>>26706105Vann is Pythianne's older brother; Pythianne is his precious imouto.
>>26706050Magister Vann did talk to me actually...It was about you and me.
>>26706105Vann is her older brother.
>>26706050Oh. Well, that sounds nasty about the 3rd year. But this is a perfect segway towards mask guy.>>26706105Siblings.
>>26706118May as well mention this too.
>>26706118Again with the ellipses!Sounding all dreamy and romantic ain't gonna do shit to this sort of woman.The alchemy girl would positively melt though.
>>26706050Why don't we tell her about our earlier talk with Vann? I wonder if she knows he spoke to us personally.Also ask about that summoning incident.
>>26706115Ah, alright. We should talk to Vann directly about what happened with the third year, and what's making him nervous, we should also try to see if he knows anything about our future with Pythianne.
Hah! He knows Pythianne is going to fall for us!
>>26706050"So, about the 'more magic' thing. I got a letter from the Fifth Circle and, well, I went. It's certainly more magic, but the whole thing just seems iffy to me. And the part where I'm sure they're listening to me say this now is part of what makes it seem so iffy. I just feel like I should ask you about them."The Fifth Circle was their name, right? If it's not, what was it?
>>26706050I have three questions to ask her"whats the safest and fastest way you would recommend me to gain enough power to defend myself?" "can you teach me how to keep something on standby that i can defend myself with""would you recommend me studying another magic to defend myself?"
>>26706140Well then, why don't you write a post that will positively get her soaking wet then?
>>26706158Nope, you haven't read the previous threads I take it.He wants us away from Pythianna, so asking something like that would either make him even more hostile towards us or he would just lie saying it's gonna crumble and end with her hating us.
>>26706168It's pretty clear by now that the fifth circle is supported by multiple of the magisters as a way to keep magic alive, they just NEED to keep it under cover so they don't get assassinated.
>>26706168Frankly, I don't even think we need to ask. Judging from what the Archmagister told us about his motivations, it's obvious that if he isn't running the Circle, he supports it. They're trying to grow more powerful mages that can't be moved.>>26706174These are excellent questions, though I'm pretty set on Force Magic as a secondary, especially after Archmagister confirmed that Castle has a natural bent for it.
>>26706186If I knew that I'd have done it ages ago.I just know theres a time for lovey dovey romance and that is AFTER she is already interested in you.
>>26706190He doesn't want us away from her, he just wants us to know that Papa--or in this case, Brother Bear is watching.
Guys, need I remind you we have a date with alchemy girl?
>>26706190no i've been reading through them slowly as I post in here.
>>26706230She's a mute, and she's flat.Sorry, Pythianne all the way.
>>26706230We'll get to it.I bet we can find her hanging around the Fifth Circle's clubhouse. I want to see what sorts of interesting things Oblitus can do, and the we should chill with her and Bowie.
>>26706144>>26706118"Vann actually talked to me earlier, before I went into the experiment..."Pythianne nods. "I know, he told me he warned you about the repercussions of the experiment. I was excited to know you came anyway!""... Right. What happened with the Third-year incident anyway?" Pythianne fidgets with her sleeve."Er... one of my students, one of my best students actually, tried to summon Aralogath, Herald of the End. We lost ten students to that... if Ranafiel wasn't by on his usual exercise, we might have lost more." You nod. She doesn't seem to like talking about this."What's the safest and fasted way you would recommend for me to gain enough power to defend myself?"She gives you a shrewd look, before glancing at Oblitus - he hasn't done much since you started talking, kind of hovering behind you. "Honestly? Try and learn Oblitus's abilities. He might be powerful and he seems loyal."You nod.>Actions?
>>26706230Do you really think that Operation: Hot for Teacher is ever gonna lead anywhere? She's an adult, and a teacher. We're a horny teenager who constantly asks her about summoning succubi.
>>26706230We're Harry McTerrorcastle, we can handle more then one girl!
>>26706267That's what we say, not what we feel.
"I strive for something beyond the strongest, that challenging me would be the most ridiculous thought ever, that fighting me would be a sin!"I think it's a sign. Accel would be the most absurdly OP Force mage if translated to this setting.
>>26706261we asked her about that like, once.
>>26706230I think it's the description of the tits, the anons can't resist trying to get at a large pair of imaginary tits for some obscure reason.I personally think we have some me recruits who're obsessed with the magister cos until last thread we seemed to be set on Ariane.Also Vann has to know about the fifth circle unless they can hide us from his divinations
>>26706257>she's flat.She's always been described as wearing baggy clothing. We haven't had a beach episode to tell yet.
>>26706259Well, there's that. And then there's force magic.We can do both.
>>26706277Why not ask force mages if it is possible?
>>26706259>tried to summon Aralogath, Herald of the EndWhat the fuck. Who would even try.. Just... WHAT.
>>26706286I'll admit, half the fun is describing her chest and watching anon's react
>>26706284Dude, every time we talked to her about demons we asked about succubi. Every. Time. Look it up.
>>26706302Start describing Ariane's body so she can get some attention too. Date will be a good opportunity to see her out of baggy clothing.
>>26706302I still can't believe she didn't mind us seeing her nude.Actually ask her about that.
>>26706259>Aralogath, Herald of the EndJesus Christ how horrifying.Let's head to the clubhouse and give Oblitus a test drive. And talk about how great we are.Then we can see what the buds are up to and drink potions with Ariane so we can go on a metaphysical exploration of the inner psyche.
>>26706277Yes. We need to start throwing buildings.
>>26706314>inb4 she's a really effeminate dude.
>>26706321Yeah, that won't be extremely awkward...
>>26706322This but we can show her Obby and introduce the two of them. Also is Ariane mute, deaf or both?
>>26706259Well, let's take her advice and try to learn more about Obby.
>>26706333>inb4 she's a really effeminate dude.Well, we always have wispy blond necromancer girl to fall back on.
>>26706321Rather than that, tell her she looks awesome naked!
>>26706366>Not wanting the trap.What are you, a faggot?
>>26706360I think she's just mute, she's responded to our talking perfectly well. That or she reads lips.
>>26706347I'm not sure it's natural for people to see each other though..
>>26706322>>26706321>>26706294"Um... about the Astral Travel..." She looks at you. "Yes?""... Why weren't you bothered about being naked?" She blinks, and giggles."Dear, I work with Jasper. He goes around naked once a month on average. Besides, your not the first person I've Astral Travelled with. Although Vann doesn't let me drag him along after that trip to the Infernal Plane..." You decide not ask.You bid her goodbye and leave for the Sekrit Clubhouse.As you move over to the tree, you do see Ranafiel and Jasper running side by side. He is, indeed, wearing a pair of pink, floppy bunny ears... and is that a cotton tail? It's a cotton tail.Making sure the coast is clear, you slip down into the Fifth Circle.Jaqul is sitting in the main room, reading a book. There are a pair of older students you don't recognise, one male, one female, calmly playing chess. They look like twins.The Alchemy Lab's door is open, as is the Library. Masked Man is not present but his Mask is still hanging on his throne. You can hear the sounds of sparring from the Force Dojo.>Actions?
>>26706373>fully sublimated by the TEEGEE
>>26706261We've never seriously asked her, and only jokingly asked once, a fact I'm miffed about.
I pointed this out earlier, >>26704406but I still think something is up with Pythaine after what Luna said in the flashback thing
>>26706385Shout out that the empire is out to assassinate us all and that we need to keep our cover low.
>>26706259We really need to meet Ranafiel and get more of that force magic swag
>>26706385Head to the dojo. If we are to fully learn of the Entropic Plane, we must know how to control things in this Plane as well.
>>26706385Check the force Force Dojo, we may learn something from watching.
>>26706424LETS SPAR WITH OBBY
>>26706385Either the dojo or the summoning chamber. There was a summoning chamber down here too, right?
>>26706385Let's let Jaqul know we're here now. He needs to know.And then we go to the summoning room with Obby. I suspect that he's going to be able to fuck shit up. The librarian seems to telegrab books. Maybe Obby can just straight up warp reality.
>>26706385When is our date with Ariane? Is Obby still with us?If we have nothing else to do, we should watch people spar and try to pick something up.
>>26706385Just poke our head into the alchemy lab to see if Ariane is there. If she is wave and come in, since we can't contain Obby it doesn't matter where we go with her. Also Obby seems shy, Ariane seems shy, they might hit it off big.
Wonder what would've happened if we didn't qualify for the Fifth Circle. More standard Slice of Life stuff?
>>26706449>WhenIt's whenever the fuck we feel like it. Seriously, we told her we'd hang out later and exchange notes. And by notes, she'd show us some cool potions and we'd introduce her to haxifoar, uh, haxorlifxx, uh, zifaxlse - fuck it, we'd introduce her to Bowie.
>>26706380That's about as natural as it gets.
>>26706464"He's pretty cool, what's his name?""The experience of carving libraries worth of information into the flesh of human slaves in the dark depths of the Infernal Plane."
>>26706385Introduce ourselves to the older students and look for another summoner. Need to start learning from someone with a different perspective.
Let's simply as Oblitus if he can obliterate things, or if he can help is with other things.
>>26706451>>26706442>>26706437>>26706424You poke your head into the Alchemy Lab. Ariane is indeed mixing potions, listening to the instructions of an older student. "... and then grind the basilisk scale carefully. Only a little bit."You wave at her when she glances up and she smiles. She'd wave back, but she's holding test tubes. Oblitus pokes his head in as well, and she looks faintly surprised at this. "...""When your done, can you meet me in the Force Dojo?" She nods, still carefully pouring powdered scales into a vial of thick, bubbling red liquid.You head to the Force Dojo, greeting Jaqul as you go. He glances up at Oblitus, blinks, and looks back down into his book.The Force Dojo is currently occupied by the tall Force Mage you met earlier, and a small, dainty little brunette girl. They're engaged in a vicious spar, and the little girl is winning easily.It seems mostly Physical... except they're about a foot away from each other, striking out with telekinetic blows and parrying with Force Shields.She's pretty good - a vicious kick sends the taller male back into a padded wall, as she wipes sweat from her forehead.>Ask Oblitus about his powers?>Continue watching?
>>26706527Ask if oblitus can do what they are doing
>>26706527>>Ask Oblitus about his powers?>>Continue watching?Might as well ask him while we watch.Ask him if he thinks he could match them.
>>26706527>Ask Oblitus about his powers?Not a straight up question though. Something like, "You're really awesome, so you should be able to do some really awesome things. Why don't ya show me something awesome!"
>>26706527Converse with Oblitus about his powers while watching the two spar. We're Harry McTerrorcastle, we can multitask easily.
>>26706527>Ask Oblitus about his powers?If my theories are correct it should be simmilar to how Force Magic operates. Both are about imposing your will onto the world, but whereas Force Magic alters physicalities, Entropic Magic alters concepts, ideas, raw energy. I would bet anything that the Plane of pure energy is related to the Entropic Plane in some way.
>>26706527Ask Blonde girl about force magic.Then after we get the quick and to the point force magic response ask Obby about his powers.
>>26706527Is it possible gain any more crazy insight bonuses from watching a spar? Otherwise probe Obby about his abilities. Although I have a feeling we'd have to come up with abilities for him to use based on what we observe is his forte, rather than him just telling us.
>>26706561This. >>26706573Also, this sounds probable. Maybe try to get Obby to alter the concept of gravity so that something floats?
>>26706581I think disintegration may be a further application of force magic? Instead of thinking of moving or some such thing you merely focus on removing the object from existence.
>>26706581Crazy, no, but it's obvious that a physical motion adds to the ease of casting. Not necessary by any means, due to whatshisface simply disintegrating everything he touches, but it likely adds to the ability to visualize the intended change.We should not rely on this. The ability to toss someone aside without moving is far more powerful than telegraphing your intent.
>>26706544>>26706545>>26706559>>26706561You watch as the taller male gets up again, charges with a roar... and is tripped by a telekinetic force. Power is all well and good if you can't wield it well it seems."Say, Obby, you're pretty cool. Why don't you show me something cool you can do?" He looks at his hands."I... I don't remember... I..." He stares up at one of the training dummies, reaching out with one hand. "Lonely. I've been so lonely..." It begins to move... it's arms bend and it's legs shift. The half-stitched face blinks. "I don't want to be lonely anymore..."The Training Dummy pulls itself off it's chains, standing before Oblitus.>Actions?
>>26706609The force magic we aim for is the kind that as we sit on our throne of bones, commanding our legions of devils and demons, and a hero bursts in to stop us, we look at him, and he becomes a pulp from sheer force of will we used on him.
>>26706647That's awesome obby! Can you do it with more than one at the time? Try making them dance!
>>26706647Ok. So he animates golems. And it looks like already human-shaped things are easier.So, "You're not alone anymore. You're my friend now, and I'm your friend. But I bet you could make more. Like that guy standing right there." (gesture to the dummy)
>>26706647Did he just animate the training dummy?
>>26706647>"I don't want to be lonely anymore...">sadcastle.jpg>The Training Dummy pulls itself off it's chains, standing before Oblitus.Holy shit.Army of inanimate objects, here we come!On that note, let us comfort our friend and partner in crime.If this aspect reflects something of us...does that mean we're lonely, too?
>>26706647Animation? The power to animate objects? Please be this awesome!On a side note, let him continue until we sense danger to our secrecy, someone else or our selves then step in and give Obby a hug and say "your not alone anymore remember?"
>>26706647Test the limits of his ability. Try to animate more dummies, make them fight each other.
>>26706699Nah. Just deathly afraid of it.
>>26706647Maybe he is representing forgotten power
I wonder if he can animate other people.Let's not find out yet.
>>26706647Guys, please.We should go comfort Obby. He's not alone anymore, we're here for him. We're his friend.
>>26706699>>26706708>>26706695You hug him from behind. For someone made of black sand and feelings, he's surprisingly warm. "Shhh. You're not alone anymore, remember? I'm your friend now, and forever." He stiffens a little but relaxes. "Can you make anymore?"Oblitus holds his hands out. A second training dummy joins the first. A third jostles and moves a little but as it grows in power, the others seem to weaken. His limit seems to be two... or maybe it's affected by size as well? In any case, it looks like has to divide his power between them.>Actions?>I'm going to start drawing up Oblitus's Character sheet in a moment.
>>26706723Afraid of loneliness?It would make sense. We named ourselves Hairy McTerrorcastle. We don't want to be ignored.We don't want to be forgotten.
>>26706752Maybe control them or make them like him/us. Seeing as his power is related to making friends.
>>26706771Practice makes perfect.How about we ask Force-girl if she'd like to spar against some dummies? Summon magic vs Force magic!
>>26706771Let's do some experiments, first: find out the absolute limit of dummies. Secondly: find out the full extent of commands we can issue, try making it dance and attack each other.Third: Try it on other objects and see how much we can control at once.Last: Try it on a willing human.
Rolled 34>>26706771Try it for ourselves. We have telekinesis, and we're the one who "created" Oblitus, so we should have the basic potential.
>>26706771Maybe check how the other people reacted to this. Also try ordering the dummies to do something, if that doesn't work ask Obby to send back two to their original positions and lets practice with one. Later on we can try on other materials and objects to see the finer details.
>>26706828Don't roll unless the Archmagister asks us toEspecially when you roll that low
>>26706821Our teacher perhaps?Lets ask Oblitus the effects if used on humans first though.
>>26706828>>26706798>>26706798"Hmmm... I wonder how tough they are..." You glance at Luna, before glancing at the brunette girl. The tall mage is panting on the ground, and she gives you an interested look. "Nice trick. Enchantment?" She says calmly, wiping some sweat off her forehead."Something like that. I want to see how tough they are." She nods, assuming a boxing stance."Let's see how good these things are!" Oblitus blinks in surprise when she Force Punches a dummy in the stomach. "... That's not very nice..." He murmurs, tilting his head. The struck dummy collapses to the ground bonelessly as the second dummy charges forward, surprisingly quickly. It's surprisingly acrobatic, flipping and rolling around the girl's blows, jabbing her lightly with it's hands. Oblitus frowns lightly."... Too soft..." He mutters. He's probably referring to the dummies themselves.>Try sparring one for yourself?>Other?
>>26706906"So how are you doing that?"
>>26706906Hey girl, wanna see if this enhancement works on humans too?
>>26706931Is that directed at Oblitus or the girl?
>>26706906Might be an idea to stop before Obby does something dramatic. Like turning their fists into adamantine, we don't know if he can but better not take chances.
>>26706906Well I HOPE he's referring to the dummy.In any case, why don't we ask what Obi wants to do?
>>26706906>Other?"If the dummies are too soft, you should try shaping one out of the stone in the ground."
>>26706938I think it would be better directed at the girl. Obby is just going to say he doesn't want to be alone.
>>26706906So Luna's a good trainer, huh? We should learn how to create REAL golems and put them under Luna's control.Let's try learning a trick from the Force girl, as well as her name. We can promise to let her spar with Luna's golems later.
>"... Too soft..." He mutters."Then just make them harder," you say.>>26706939Ah, whatever. We'll just take her to the healing magister. She seems like the type to be impressed with a show of strength anyway.
>>26706972>"Then just make them harder,"This
>>26706972What would we tell the healer?"She fell down the stairs sir, I swear."
>>26707011Force Magic training. Sparring got a little heated. Should've been doing it with someone watching, etc, etc, so sorry.
>>26706931>>26706953>>26706944You shrug at him, tapping him on the shoulder. He blinks in surprise, the Training dummy collapsing to the floor bonelessly. "If they're too soft, you could make one from the stone in the ground." He looks down, focusing, before sighing. "... I can't." He mutters.Well. Worth a shot. Seems like he can't make them move unless they're already capable of movement."Say, I didn't get your name. I'm Hairy McTerrorcastle, but my friends call me Castle." She gives you an amused stare but holds out her hand. "Josephine McLaine, third year Force student." Oblitus fidgets with his cloth again. "This is Oblitus, by the way. Oblitus Luna. He's not a student." You add the last part almost as an afterthought."If you want to try and practice on the golem's later, that's cool with me." She chuckles, stretching lightly. "I'd like that.">Actions?
>>26706972Yeah do this
>>26707011People die here all the time, breaking a couple of ribs during a force sparring match doesn't seem too unlikely
>>26706934Ah shit, lets go ahead and try this.Wonder if it goes permanent of they were sentient beforehand too.
>>26707032We should probably stop treating Obby like a slave. We don't technically control him.I think we should tell Obby to take a break while we ask blondie if she could help with our force magic.
>>26707032Ask Oblitus if it works on humans too, and if yes, ask the girl if she wants to volunteer.
I just had a thought about the masked man. What if its the librarian?
>>26707032Maybe ask her about some force magic. "I'm focusing on summoning, but I've been meaning to learn some more force magic too. Read Ranafiel's book about BE STRONG, but all I can really do is toss around a pillow. Any pointers?"
>>26707032Tell her we're a fan of force a bit ourselves and ask if she can teach us a thing or two.
>>26707083Dude, we don't even know if he CAN get tired.
>>26707083How are we treating him like a slave? He's following us around because we're friends.
>>26707120Obby do this. Obby do that. Obby stand on your head.Pretty much what we're doing.
>>26707055>>26707090Guys, are you serious? She's not just going to randomly be our guinea pig for no reason after just meeting us. Who wants to be controlled like a dummy?>>26707083While I find your assessment that we're treating him like a slave is really off-base, I agree that we should ask our senior for some tips for a beginning force mage.Also, happily accept her invitation to spar in the future. Or hell, make it right now if she's the hands-on sort.
>>26707032What if Obby tried to befriend Jaqul and the others? We can't always be around, and animated dummies won't always be enough. Other people would love him too!
>>26707138It's just because asking him things went nowhere at all every time.
>>26707138Relax, we're just having him flex his muscles. It's important to know what he's capable of.We can ask him if he wants to hang out and pick up some chicks later.
>>26707090>>26707083>>26707055You give Oblitus a sly look. "Say, Obby... does that trick work on humans?" Oblitus looks at his hands. "... I don't remember..." You glance at Josephine. "Want to try it out?"She blinks, shaking her head. "Not unless he's sure what he can do." You nod. Understandable."Well, I've been learning a bit of Force myself. Care for a spar?"She grins at you. "If you think you can stand up to me.">Spar?>Do something else?
>>26707138Yeah, -asking- him to do -one- thing is really demanding, I'm shocked he hasn't killed us by now.
>>26707141No harm in asking.Especially since it turned training dummies into something she couldn't properly strike, imagine if that shit works on magic too, not just the physical body.
>>26707138Well yes, he has already proven that he does not act on his own, he needs to be asked to do things in order to act.He may open up / develop a personality as time goes, but for now he is really passive.And dude, we just asked him to do something, he could have said no.
>>26707160>want some tips and pointers>now we must sparThe lazy man in me is agin it, but okay, lets do this. Luna can watch.
>>26707160>>Spar?Can we get some tips from Miss McLaine, first? We're still just staring out on the force magic. All we did was telekinetically beat up our pillow, we haven't even punched or shielded with it.
>>26707160>"If you think you can stand up to me."We can't. No way in hell can we. If we do, we're about to get the shit kicked out of us.I say no. We can throw around something like 34lbs maximum if we're lucky. We'll get fucking wrecked.
>>26707175I'm probably over reacting a bit. Well just drop this, maybe next time we ask a force Mage to force punch his dummies we tell him first.
>>26707160I don't feel like being beaten around the bush just yet, and my friend here may take a little bit of action if he sees me hurt, so I'll have to decline.
>>26707160"Stand up? Probably not. But as Ranafiel says, Be Strong."
>>26707160Ask her if we can get some quick spell tips first so we don't get kicked through the roof and all the way to the magic hospital.
>>26707160Don't spar, go and find some books on the other forbidden schools so we can find ????.
>>26707201THIS IS THE PATH OF THE FORCE MAGE, TO BE STRONG.YOU WISH TO BECOME A PROPER FORCE MAGE, YET SHY AWAY FROM THE RISK OF PHYSICAL INJURY? YOU DISAPPOINT THE CASTLE.
Seriously, who gives two shit if we break a leg, we need to learn to use force magic in combat.BE STRONG, be a muscle wizard.
>>26707247Oh right, and mention to her that you have only been READING up on force magic until now, so she should expect to go easy on us
>>26707160Nothing wrong with some sparring. You learn something even if you get your ass kicked. The important thing to remember is to BE STRONG BE STRONG BE STRONG BE STRONG BE STRONG BE STRONG BE STRONG BE STRONG.
>>26707236I AM HAIRY MCTERRORCASTLEWATCH AS A BLINDLY LEAP OFF BRIDGES TO CERTAIN DEATHTHE MCTERRORCASTLE CLAN FEARS NO ONEAll I want is some tutoring time. We don't even know how to punch, how can we be a muscle wizard?Besides, the cute and toned brunette will be guiding our hands towards the targets.
And guys, Ariana was going to come to the sparring room when she finished.What's more manly than seeing us get beaten up by a girl? NOTHING! I say we spar!
>Wanting to be a brute MageThere's a reason we chose summoning, it was because we wanted breasts not burly chests, and on that note lets go get some tomes on Succubi
>>26707195>>26707196>>26707201"... Nah. I'd probably get my ass beat. You got any pointers?" She blinks, stroking her chin."Well... aside from practicing? Force Magic is like a muscle, really. Try making a shield though. Just, a solid wall of force. Get a friend to throw things at it until you can block them effectively. It's one of the cornerstones of fighting with Force Magic."You nod. Force Shield huh? Might have to try that out later.She heads over to the other mage, kicking him lightly. He groans. "Well, he's not getting up for a while. If you want some tutoring, I can probably help you out later - but first, I'm hungry as fuck. Want to get some food?"Ariane pokes her head in at this exact time, waving at you.>Go get food?>Other?
>BE THE STRONGEST!
>>26707286>implying she won't whisk out a healing potion to aid her crushInjury and trauma brings hearts together.
>>26707160SPAR!!!!The worst that happens is we get injured. The best is a crit on the dice roll and gaining major power progression.
>>26707293Decline her but say that we will have to take up on her offer later, we have a date.
>>26707293"I'd love to, but I've got a date, I'm afraid."ALL ABOARD THE ARIANE EXPRESS!
>>26707293Let's get some grub with the ladies.We should ask Jaqul if he's in an eating mood when we pass through the lobby....you know, the Fifth Circle seems like a pretty relaxed place. I get the feeling it's meant to protect our real exercises from the prying eyes of the empire more than be some kind of super secret evil club.
>>26707293Decline, we have a date
>>26707293Tell her sorry, we're going to hang out here for a bit.We need to catch up with Ariane and let her know to keep a low profile.Then we need to study succubi and summon Haztoraxifeliv to trade for that trustworthy succubus name. Maybe he'd have some insight on Luna as well.
Lets spar nowBE THE STRONGEST
>>26707293>Go get food?>Other?Ask Ariane to come with. And maybe Obby eats. Probably not, but it can't hurt to offer. And we should introduce them. The old Ariane, this is Oblitus Luna. Obby, this is Ariane.
>>26707293oh god oh god mute waifu or muscle waifu
>>26707328>>26707346These!We have a date with a compelling mute girl!
>>26707293I suggest we get food but not with force chick. Ariane is here and we gotta get wooing.Say to force chick "maybe another time"Then to Ariane "do you want to go grab some food? I can introduce you to Obby here and we can discuss a few more things."
>>26707333this. Invite the arab jace.
>>26707374Cancel that. Forgot about how it was supposed to be a date. One on one with the deaf girl
>>26707333Yeah, once I heard about the empires assassination plans I suddenly realized why this fifth circle exists
>>26707367>>26707346>>26707328>implying Hairy McTerrorcastle can't go on a date with two women at onceLet's go eat together with our summoned buddy.We can hang out in private with Ariane right afterward. We must build a coalition for the coming storm.
>>26707366Not a force Mage. That relationship would never work, Hairy MCTERRORCASTLE can be second to none and force magic is very much about being number one.
>>26707398>going for the haremOr we could not do that for once. Just one time we could commit. Just once. It doesn't always have to be Waifu collector quest.
/tg/ you need to play more dating sims. You don't build a harem by blindly dating every girl you meet, and you certainly don't do it by doing a first date with two girls at the same time. You have to do the individual plotlines first, THEN merge them into a workable harem.
>>26707391Mute, fairly certain she can hear. Though those do usually go hand in hand.
>>26707372>>26707367>>26707346>>26707328"Sorry. I have a date." You flash Ariane a smile, and she smiles back. Josephine nods, bending over to pick her fellow Force mage up. "Well, I better take this idiot to the Infirmary or something. Have fun." She heads off with that, effortlessly carrying him."So... lunch?" You say to Ariane. She smiles again and nods.You head out. Jaqul is already gone - possibly into one of the other rooms, you aren't sure. In any case, you reach the Cafeteria, and take a table.She pulls out the notepad, scribbling a small message on it and passing it over.'Whose your friend?'You scribble your response. 'Oblitus Luna - a Summon.' Oblitus watches curiously as you pass the notepad back and forth a little, making small talk.A serving golem shuffles over, awaiting your orders.>Order what?>Other?
>>26707398This is probably a good idea, but I got a feeling if we don't aim for one girl, /tg/ will just go for the harem route; it's annoying when every quest does this and realistically it would pretty much never happen.
>>26707423>/tg/>not going for the harem
>>26707441>Order what?Uhhh. Steak? I dunno what they have in this setting.And ask Obby if he wants anything. Or if he even eats.Inb4 can't remember.
>>26707441>Order what?Food. We're here for lunch.
Rolled 26>>26707441order spaghetti, rolling not to spill
>>26707441Order something with lots of fruits and vegetables. Gotta stay healthy.Tell her about our meeting with Jasper, warn her to keep her head down.
>>26707476It's magic, we can have whatever you damn well want.
>>26707447>>26707423Honestly the comment was a joke on the character, but my bad because it's impossible to tell humor from people that are dead serious.>>26707441Order braised chicken stuffed with melted parmesan and portabella mushrooms. Baked potato and corn on the cob for sides, and a few slices of watermelon for desert. Because Hairy McmotherfuckingTerrorcastle has specific tastes that will be satisfied.Ask Oblitus if he wants something to eat. When he tells us he doesn't remember what eating is, get him some chocolate ice cream to help him remember.
>>26707492We want chicken with steam boiled vegetables.Also ask obby if he likes food.
>>26707492Then deep dish pizza. Pizza is good for dates.
>>26707441Explain to Luna that Ariane is mute and maybe use this as a reason to find out why.Something along the lines of "Luna this is Ariane and she can't really communicate that easily so we talk using this notepad and pen"Then winning smile at Ariane and maybe something like "Sorry for not asking earlier but it didn't seem like a big deal, why can't you speak?"
>>26707524>eating with your hands>getting grease everywhere>toppings falling off the pizza as you try to get it in your mouthEugh, no. Dates mean utensils unless you're on a picnic somewhere nature-y.
>>26707552>why can't you speak?Jesus christ, have some tact. We'll get to that in due time.
>>26707564It's deep dish, you swine. You use utensils for deep dish.
>>26707505Fuck yes.If Ariane is impressed and asks for advice, recommend her sautéed salmon with thin noodles, aspargus, cucumber and slices of lemon on the side
>>26707505>>26707516>>26707487>>26707476"I'll have a braised chicken stuffed with melted parmesan and portabella mushrooms. Baked potato and corn on the cob for sides, and a few slices of watermelon for dessert." You look at Oblitus. "Did you want anything?"He stares at the table. "I... I remember... ice cream..." He murmurs. The golem jots it down. Ariane scribbles a note and passes it to the golem. It shuffles off to retrieve your orders.You take the notepad and begin scribbling down what you and Jasper discussed. She looks faintly pale but nods."By the way... Luna, this is Ariane and she can't really communicate that easily, so we talk using a notepad and pen." He makes an 'Ah' sound.>Actions?
>>26707592Oblitus, can you return what was lost?
>>26707592Wrap up the date and lets summon Haztoraxifeliv. We've got some Dealin' to do now that the Empire is on our back.Also tell Ariane that we've got her back if anything happens or she ever needs help.
>>26707624Wow. That's some speed dating right there.
>>26707592Make conversation. I'm sure Hairy McTerrorcastle is a suave and charmto ng person, but /tg/ is, for the most part, not.
>>26707624Hah, summoning Haztoraxifeliv was going to be PART of the date.And I specifically remember promising to check out some concoctions she was brewing.
>>26707592Tell her about the trip to the plane...uh...but leave out the naked bits.Then ask her what she's been up to. I'm pretty interested. That will segue into -hey why don't we go somewhere more private so you can show me-.Also, I have an idea, based on something I mentioned earlier.I say we ditch the succubi idea, or put it on the back burner. Succubi have been done. It's old hat, the shit horny teenagers get up to. It won't be taken seriously. This is below the McTerrorcastle name.I say we summon creatures and build an on-campus restaurant. Our kitchens shall be staffed by the greatest demonic chefs; we shall become the evil caricature of Gordon Ramsey, leading our troops with a flaming soup ladle. Our summoning magic shall become ever stronger under the innocent guise of capitalism. We shall pioneer the mixtures of magic and food, creating delicacies the likes of which the world has never seen. The emperor won't want to assassinate us once we get to his stomach.Ariane can help, potions will be a critical component of our production.
>>26707592Continue small talk.Maybe ask how alchemy is coming. Tell her about the study rooms literally having left apparently. Uhh. Learning some force magic (did we tell her about the pillow? add that in if not).And then summon Bowie. She wanted to see him.
>>26707619Wait a second, are you going to try and have Luna give her back her voice and hearing?
>>26707592OK, to not sit about and not say anything, how about we ask her about her day? What potions was she brewing earlier? Were they the ones she was going to show us?
>>26707660>And then summon Bowie. She wanted to see him.We're not allowed to summon unsupervised; I don't really give a fuck about the rules, but doing it in the middle of the dining hall at lunchtime is kinda silly. We'll have to do it back in the clubhouse.
>>26707662God I hope not. "Here you go, you worthless freak. Look how great I am."
>>26707673Of course we weren't going to do that in the middle of a meal.>>26707662>>26707619Now THIS has piqued my interest, we should take note of this for later. Maybe we can ask Haztoraxifeliv if he knows any school of magic that can perform such feats.
>>26707649Perfect, after food lets go back to the cabal room and show her our new and improved Haztoraxifeliv.>>26707640Conversations feel really weird in this format. ">action?" just feels too open ended. I prefer the studying/worldbuilding/insane dice rolling more.
>>26707697Well I want to talk to her.
>>26707649>>26707645>>26707654>>26707660You tell her about how you met Oblitus. She seems very interested in that, but you tactfully leave out the fact that you were naked... and staring at Pythianne most of the time.She tells you about her alchemy projects - they're covering Elixirs mostly, things to increase the body's capabilities. She's incredibly interested into the dynamics of the ingredients.Your food arrives - she ordered the same thing as you apparently. She blushes lightly, and just scribbles down 'It sounded good.' The golem puts a sundae in front of Oblitus.He stares at it quietly, before picking up the spoon. One of his hands goes to pull down the cloth around his mouth and... well, he's got a human mouth. It doesn't look that interesting, to be honest. You aren't sure what you were expecting.You continue to make small talk as you finish your lunches. In case you were wondering, she was very much surprised at how delicious hers was. Oblitus said nothing but he definitely ate all the ice cream."Come on. Let's go back - I still need to show you Haztoraxifeliv."You take her by the hand, noticing she blushes a little at the contact, as you both head back to the Fifth Circle. Once in the Summoning Chambers, you prepare the spell.>Roll 1d100 to cast Summon Imp II
This seems like a good opportunity to ask about her personally. Where's she from, does she have family back home, why is she interested in magic, and potions, specifically? You know, normal date shit.

He's larger, and actually standing on the ground now. A little under four feet, with burning red skin and a pair of goat horns. He has hair now, shaggy and black, and little taloned feet. He flexes his membranous wings with a yawn.He's also completely naked. "... Ah. Krr-ka summoned me." His voice is a bit deeper, harsher now.Ariane looks quite impressed though. Oblitus seems confused mostly."Ariane, Oblitus Luna, Haztoraxifeliv. Haztoraxifeliv, Ariane and Oblitus Luna."The Imp blinks, shrugging at both of them. Ariane smiles and waves, still holding your hand. Oblitus... Oblitus hides behind you a little, gripping your shoulder. It's like introducing dogs. Or cats.>Actions?>Might have to wrap this up soon
>>26707748>You take her by the hand
I wonder how awesome Haztoraxifeliv's rank 2 form is
>>26707860>I probably could've described that better, but he's essentially more humanoid now.
>>26707877good but apparently not as good as other infernalswait until summon imp III for the cool stuff to start happening
>>26707860Tell him we'll trade the Magister of Force's name for that succubus' name. Also ask him about personal protection, like in >>26705466>I wish there was something we could summon that would stay invisible and follow us around, watching our back. Not Haztoraxifeliv, but someone we can summon easily for longer periods of time.
>>26707908>talking about succubi>while on a dateWatch out guys, we're dealing with the Master of Romance over here.
>>26707860Ask him about Oblitus, and the Plane of Entropy, and if he knows anything useful about potion making. Also, personal protection.Also, did we wake him up? He's free to skip out and take a nap, we have a lady friend to attend to...Speaking of, it's going to be awkward trying to hit on Ariane when Oblitus is standing there watching with his single eyeball.>>26707908>trading the name of the Magister of Force for the name of a succubi when we have our date standing next to usEven if I didn't think that was a bad trade, you're still a moron.

>>26707866>still holding your handIt's always the quiet ones
>>26707860What was the time running for this spell?

We can summon our own succubus and learn its name ourselves.Or, better still, forget succubi, acquire demon chefs.We'll call it Hell's Kitchen.
>>26707963I'm also in favor of not trying to fix what isn't broken. >>26707975These roles have always been bad. It's a shame we have no endurance, almost embarrassing.
>>26707979It's not about the name, you retard, it;s about "HEY, I'M ON A DATE RIGHT NOW, BUT CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO SUMMON A SEX SLAVE? THIS BITCH AINT PUTTIN' OUT NAW'M'SAYIN?"

He flexes his wings again. Oblitus is still hiding behind you.>Actions?
>>26708027Ask Obby what's wrong

We can be full of ourselves without shooting empathy in the head.
>>26708027Well that's mighty nice of him to freely offer such a spell.We should fill him in on the whole empire soon to be out to get us situation.
>>26708027"What's wrong, Oblitus?"I want top buddy's opinion on Imp buddy.Also, ask him about potions, see if Ariane has any questions for a knowledgeable demon, etc.
>>26708015>she's already expressed that she'd prefer a voice anyway.When?
>>26708089I believe in passing she mentioned it was annoying to write back and forward on the pad. It was a scrap of fluff at some point.I wouldn't take it as permission to try and immediately cure her.
>>26708062>>26708044>>26708038"Obby, what's wrong? Bowie isn't going to attack you." Oblitus flinches lightly. "I... I remember claws... and teeth..." He murmurs, burying his face in your back, peeking out over your shoulder.Ariane giggles a little. "... Okay then, I guess. Did you want to ask him anything Ariane?" She shakes her head. "Well, I guess you can go if you want Bowie." Bowie nods, and vanishes."I think you had some potions to show me as well, didn't you?" She nods excitably, and drags you and by proxy, Oblitus, to the Alchemy Lab.She scribbles on her piece of paper.'What'd you want to see first?'>Elixirs>Brews>Salves

>>26708111"How about a love potion?" Wait for her reaction, and then chuckle. "Just messing with you. What do you think's your best work so far?"
>>26708111Whatever her favorite is.
>>26708111"You said you were working on elixers, yeah? Let's start with them"
Ask him how to get her voice back!
>>26708124>"How about a love potion?"If she pulled out a bottle of Everclear it'd be the best joke ever.
>>26708141>>26708134>>26708119"Well, what's your favourite?" She beams, dragging you over to one section, scribbling madly on her notepad.'Elixirs, definitely. There's just so much you can do with them! Increase strength, heal diseases, improve bodily function... Check this one out! One of the older students made it, said it was to improve 'physical performance'!' She holds up a bright pink bottle. She goes on about the elixirs and their effects for a little bit longer.You think you have time to check out another section if you'd like, or wrap up the date here?>I'm gonna wrap this up at the date's conclusion.
>>26708185>said it was to improve 'physical performance'!'It would be irresponsible not to drink it.
>>26708146The autism is strong with this one.Hey, here's a brilliant idea. Later, on, preferably after we're not on a first date, we -talk- about it with her, and find out how she feels about the situation. Then, if she asks US for help, we help.Rather than try to correct her to a state we think she should be in.
>>26708185Got any elixirs that improve your capabilities, "down there"?
>>26708185>One of the older students made it, said it was to improve 'physical performance'!Ask her to elaborate further and if she wants to test it with us.
>>26708185>'physical performance'!'>"Cool. Want to share a swig?"I mean, what's the worst that could happen?
>Ariane shows us essentially a love potion or medieval viagra>people think she'd get mad over an infernal deal involving names of succubiAriane's a horndog. And that's okay.
>>26708246It doesn't matter--you don't go on a date with a girl and start trying to pick up other chicks, that's not cool, man.
>>26708246Hobbies include holding hands and being a freak in bed.
>>26708225>>26708211>>26708208>>26708201>I brought this on myself, didn't I..."Cool. Do you think they'd mind if we drink it?" She blinks, before shaking her head.'Well, not really - the ones left here are for public use.' You pop the cork off it and take a swig, holding it out to her.She takes an experimental swig of her own. It tastes like peppermint, but a bit salty.She blinks. You're feeling a little flushed now... and... oh. Oh. It was THAT kind of 'physical performance'. She's blushing furiously - you don't think she was aware of that at the time.If she could speak, she'd probably be saying something embarassed but all she can manage is a silent squeak.You're feeling pretty... energetic. From the colour of her cheeks she is too. She looks at you, a little unsurely before steeling herself.And then she kisses you. Oblitus makes a surprised noise... followed by a mumbled '... I remember...'.>Actions?
>>26708297You're right, and I actually was making that point with force chick earlier. I've just been waiting a long time to see what succubi are like in academy quest world and progress is very slow. They're my favorite demon type.
>>26708328Here's the choice gentlemen.The easy route or the hard route, the teacher or the student.I SAY THE TEACHER, BREAK THIS ADVANCE OFF
Rolled 2>>26708328Are we a bad enough dude to take this to it's logical conclusion?1 for yes. 2 for no.
>>26708328"Hey...uh...Oblitus...mind hanging out in the summoning chambers for a bit?"And then make out with her like there's no tomorrow.>I brought this on myself, didn't I...I don't see any other QMs dropping viagra potions around here.
>>26708360Man, forget the teacher. Teacher route is for fags. Cute mute 100%
>>26708328Kiss her back of course. Then ask her about antidotes, because getting it on in front of Luna is awkward.
>>26708368It was meant to be a joke on her naivete in that she didn't realise it was a viagra potion and showed it to her maybe-boyfriend.
>>26708328I think we should find a way to deal with the effects of the elixir. Other than the obvious one, we will not taking advantage of an 'innocent' mistake. Yet, or unless she really really really is sure.On another note kissing is totally fine for us to enjoy in this state.
>>26708380No. Let him watch. He has to learn human ways.
>>26708328Kiss her back fully, grope her ass while we're at it, and then we should fuck her over the tables.
>>26708394Hairy McTerrorcastle knew EXACTLY what was going on.
>>26708328Kiss back. Try not to take this too far, then fail because we're 15 and just drank a horny potion.
>>26708408Yeah this. It's probably a bad idea to go all the way like this, in a public place, in front of Luna, while under the effects of a viagra potion...
>>26708363We're too chivalrous for this shit. Apparently.
>>26708328Maximum yes. Max. I. Mum. MAXIMUM
>>26708368He knew exactly what he was doing. His avatar on his twitter is the damn Whizzard.
>>26708394>big red button>you weren't supposed to push itHeh, I remember when I first started as a QM...Anyway, let me get this straight. Ariane, budding potions master, oh-so innocently pointed the viagra potion out to us?Sounds like she wanted some McTerrorcastle up close and personal.
>>26708459Time to reveal the castles tower
Would the proper metaphor be raising the drawbridge or lowering it?
>>26708459We didn't know for sure what would happen.Mmmmmaybe something bad. Mmmmmaaaybe something good. We didn't know.
>>26708471extend the drawbridge, if you will
>>26708459She's the top Alchemy student among the first years, she knew what she was doing even if Archmagister-kun didn't know she knew.
>>26708408>>26708380>>26708363You kiss her back, wrapping your arms around her and pressing yourself against her. You make out for a while, before she finally breaks off, still flushed. She reaches for the notepad and you hand it to her - she looks pretty embarrassed.'Um... continue this somewhere else...?' You nod. 'My dorm is free...'You head off to her dorm. It's a bit of an uneventful travel, except neither of you can really keep your teenage hormone hands off of each other. Luna follows at an awkward pace, not sure if he should hang by or drop back.You briefly mention he can hang out in your room for a bit, and give him directions.Safe, alone in Ariane's dorm...It fades to black.>Aaaand that's all folks!>Archived thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26703929/>Twitter: https://twitter.com/Archmagisterkun
>>26708459She acts shy but I think we all know what she really wants, the same thing every shy girl wants. I wont be fooled by her tricks, nor will I resist.
>>26708504>It fades to black.FUCKING HELL SHE DRUGGED USSHE'S AN EMPIRE SPY
>>26708524I meant 'fade to black' as in I'm not going to describe what's about to happen.
>>26708504Damn it Magister.Making decisions like this early quest isn't a good idea.
>>26708504bag 'em and tag 'em
>>26708535I think he knows thatWhen's the next thread? They can't come often enough.
>>26708559Probably Wednesday, 2100 4chan time but no guarantees. Check my twitter for updates on that - I'll probably have a concrete date by tomorrow.
So what's under those baggy clothes.
>>26708535I kid, I kid. That would be a Shyamalan-tier twist though.I can't wait for the next thread. In the meantime, if you're unsure of succubi, might I recommend watching Lotte's Toy, or reading a few chapters of the manga? Not all succubi are sluts or fetish fuel.
>>26708597Don't worry. Ariane's a woman.Although I WAS tempted...
>>26708619I'm not sure if I'm happy you didn't...
So, so far in the Fifth Circle we haveMcTerrorcastle: Summoning (Infernal Deals)Lutharius: General Magic (Blood Magic)Jaqul: Illusion (Domination)Ariane: Alchemy (Forbidden Potions)Dickass Force Guy: Force (Destruction)Blonde Chick: Unknown, Divination suspected (Necromancy)3rd Year Force Girl: Force (Unknown)
>>26708662Neither am I.
I WANTED A TRAP, DAMNIT
>>26708662>>26708691Okay how about this. We'll put it to a vote at the start of the next Quest.I didn't go trap because I thought that might have upset some of the players. But if there's support...
>>26708619So on a scale from 1 to Pythianne...
>>26708691Well, 87% of /tg/ didn't. Stop being such a loud minority
>>26708713If Pythianne's a ten, she's a four.
>>26708712No, fuck traps.
>>26708712Maybe instead you should put a twist on the succubus...
>>26708732and I ment that figuratively, not literally.
>>26708732>fuck trapsYes, quite.
>>26708712While I'm not totally opposed, I'd like to put my stock with >>26708724. Let's just keep this vanilla. Or as vanilla as magical lovings get.
>>26708729In terms of looks or size of assets?
>>26708765>>26708724>>26708732Yeah, I figured it was not something the majority wanted.>>26708779Assets.Looks? Well, that's in the eye of the beholder.
>>267087794/10 is probably in size, so they were probably nice, healthy and firm. Just how they should be.We're fucking 15, they will probably grow even more.
>>26708712Can we retcon the fact they fucked too?Honestly it's just going to further clusterfuck the romance situation, one moment we were in full swing for the teacher and now we're all for the mute.I'm not against either, but as it is we're just as likely to go and try do the same to Pythianne in probably a few seconds into the next part of the quest, which will just lead to bullshit an shitstorms.
>>26708738>Bowie hooking us up with that kind of succbusor>Bowie seeing that we tried to summon our own without his name, and he just shakes his head and says he was going to steer us away from that crowdI'm not sure which would be funnier.
>>26708832It was under the effects of an arousal elixer, and having confused feelings is understandable for a 15 year old boy torn between the cute girl his own age and his busty favorite teacher.It's not like Pythianne would let us fuck her anyway, she clearly doesn't see us as a romantic interest at all.
>>26708832Retconning the sex? Hmmm... I'm against that mostly on the grounds of 'You chose this.'
>>26708832You can have sex without derailing it into a waifu-quest.Sheesh.No need to retcon. Castle is able to focus on multiple things at once.As for Pythianna, she has nice tits. Otherwise she is an ill-fit, and probably over twice our age.
>>26708842>Start a business selling our succubus out.>Don't tell them it's a guy. >Watch the hijinksI feel like this needs to happen
>>26708916That could happen. You terrible person.You're my favourite now.
>>26708916>get beat up by force studentsI doubt they'd see the humor. And there's other stuff you can do with a succubus companion. Like lewd humor and interfering in others' relationship drama and such.
>>26708898>>26708894>>26708866Guys, this is the fourth goddamn part of this thread, I've seen mistakes on a far tinier scale plague quests for fucking years, I don't want something like that to happen to this quest.All I'm saying is, is that our Hairy McTerrorCastle knew where to stop, I'm not ruling out blowjobs or anything like that, but sex is another issue entirely here, we could even have repercussions from the academy itself.
>>26708970>Not becoming the force mage that beats people up when they try to start shit.
>>26708980Are you saying, that when you were 15, if a girl threw herself at you when you were basically acting on your sex drive you wouldn't do this?It happened and now we'll know better and not make the same mistake again. We don't need to retcon it just because we had magical hi jinks of a slightly more mature kind.Also VI is 6 in Roman numerals not 4.
>>26708980>we could even have repercussions from the academy itself.After spending a few hours totally alone stark naked with our teacher with the banging titties?It's really all up to Archmagister-kun. I believe in him.
>>26709055This will cause problems, and it'll only take until the next thread to show it, I promise you that.
>>26709038A constant reflect field would be so damn useful, but I doubt Force magic can be simplified to reversing vectors automatically.I think the best we could get is Force armor, like the force chick was saying with force shields. Come to think of it, that's probably Ranafiel's deal.
>>26709126Why not? Just constantly tell yourself "REVERSE! REVERSE REVERSE!" in a fashion similar to BE STRONG.Force is about pushing your will onto the world so hard that the world gives up and just takes it like the bitch it is. If Hairy McMotherfucking Terrorcastle tells the world to reverse the vectors he doesn't like, the world will fucking do it.
>>26709126Force Absorption sounds better.Absorb X amount of force from Y, and whenever we want we can shoot it back out at Y too.
>>26709160As long as we don't crit fail. But I could see that working.
>>26709119Sorry. I forgot this was on 4chan and that someone, somewhere, will go on and on about the sex.
Whoa, I missed the entire thread.Can someone tell me why we just fucked that mute kid we just met like, yesterday though?Seems pretty random considering we've only known her for a day, thought we were going for the big breasted teacher myself, especially considering we seem to be basically her only friend.
>>26709365We just met Pythianne, like yesterday also. And she's something like 2 or 3 times our age.So yeah.
>>26709365It's been more than a week that we've known her. We were on very powerful drugs. The big boobed teacher is a pipe dream for those who are obsessed with the idea. I personally don't mind as long as this is just chucked on the back burner or not used to justify some stupid crap, I'm looking at teacher or harem plans.
>>26709404We've known her since the start of the quest, shit, half of our actions were to do with her tits dude.>>26709442Honestly I'm in this for the crazy magic shit, it's just that teacher supported the shit out of it, and y'know, was generally a great bro, can't help but feel we betrayed her a little, especially after we were basically her first student to enjoy her lessons.
>ITT: Virgins who thinks sex ties you up yo one girl FOREVER! Sex while bith parties are under the influence to boot.Let's take a chill pill and just enjoy the over the top hijinks. This is pretty clearly a silly silly quest.
