PREVIOUSLY on A Black Comedy: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=A%20Black%20Comedy ...======It is a slightly overcast afternoon in the City of Oblastgrad.You step through a large pair of polished oaken doors, a package slung over your shoulder that needs to be dropped off. Beside you is your good friend Tom Riddle - stitched up all posh and dapper as usual - who has taken it upon himself to escort you through the Carrowmere Manse. The foyer is every bit as elegant as you recall. A checkerboard floor of polished marble and obsidian. Candlelight wafting from orichalcum chandeliers. Spiral pillars that dance upwards to the cathedral cieling, magicked to reflect the sky above. On the balcony of the second floor, the noblewoman you came to visit - the Marquessa Amelia Carrowmere - greets you with a curtsey and an outstretched hand. It is all so picturesque - the very portrait of a Noble Household, greeting a knight errant who had completed for them a quest of great importance.Or, well, it would be if the package you were carrying wasn't a squirming paladin provocatively gagged and bound. It's also somewhat ruined by the fact that the Marquessa isn't wearing one of her elaborate jeweled gowns that she was to court; having instead opted for a short silken bathrobe over lacy undergarments. You'll certainly give her points for confidence - she's pushing 50, after all - and even more points for managing to retain her -confidence- despite her advanced age. Really, by the time that you get to the fact that the butler is wearing a torture device in miniature around his neck - the Holy Symbol of Crassus, a deity in the same pantheon as your Tepes - you're just grasping for details.>Field too long
>>27131188"Quinn!" Amellia coos. "It's been far too long, my old friend~ I'm glad you decided to come back from those dreadful thorpes in the Fangs. What brings you to our humble estate?" She eyes the trussed up paladin like a predator salivating over a piece of raw meat. "Did you bring me a present, perhaps? A freshly plucked farmer's daughter, for my collection~?">Alas, no. Perhaps next time. I was hoping I could leave Blue in your care for the day.>A project of mine, actually. I was hoping I could borrow your dungeons for a fortnight or so.>A Paladin of Achilles, to speak the truth of it! I was planning to break her myself, though.>[OTHER]
Quinn's Character Sheet: http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=651682Blue's Character Sheet: http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=652565
awww yiiis it's go time.>A Paladin of Achilles, to speak the truth of it! I decided I had too much free time and that I needed a new hobby.
>>27131197>>A Paladin of Achilles, to speak the truth of it! I was planning to break her myself, though.
>>27131197>A project of mine, actually. I was hoping I could borrow your dungeons for a fortnight or so.fuck yes we did some ill shit last night
>>27131218Oooh, a TWF paladin? That should be pretty neat. Maybe we should hold onto that magus sword....
>>27131197>A Paladin of Achilles, to speak the truth of it! I was planning to break her myself, though.>Write in"but I am open to suggestions though"
>>27131197Bow back to Amelia, take her hand and give it a quick kiss or kiss her on the cheek, if we're close by. "Alas my dear Countess it is not a present for you, it is a project of my own. Though I may very well call upon your assistance.You see darling, she happens to be a Paladin of Achilles and I knew that I just had to have her for my own and see what I could do with her."
>>27131478Hurf, good catch anon! We can't forget our manners. We need to set a good example to Blue and, of course, the Marquessa deserves our utmost respect.
>>27131197A paladin of Achilles, to speak the truth of it! I was planning on making her my personal pet, though.
>>27131662Durr, Marquessa, not Countess. I honestly have no clue how I got those two confused. But yes, she seems like our type of girl and showing respect to someone whose dungeon we're using is a good idea.
So what are we going to do with the paladin once we break her? What are we going to try to mold her into?I see two very broad options:Antipaladin: The dark mirror of her former self, Good to evil, law to chaos. She'd probably kill for fun like we do. Problem is, I don't trust us, so I wouldn't trust her if we turned her into us.Dark Knight: Evil knight sworn to our service. More reliable, but possibly less fun to be around. Also, it doesn't have as much mechanical support in our current system, which kinda sucks.I personally prefer the Dark Knight approach, what do you guys think?
>>27131704Somewhere between the two. Our partner in crime, someone who appreciates what we do and enjoys it.But we want her to have grown dependent on us, we want to be a cornerstone of her reality and personality. Basically elevate ourself to an idol in her mind.
>>27131704>>27131725 has it right. There's a happy middle ground between 'gleeful sociopath' and 'service bound to us so she doesn't try to eat our heart and wear our skin'
>>27131704I'd prefer a loyal minion to a potential rival i think.
>>27131704All we want to do is fuck her up and make her bad, so let's not concern ourselfs with the goal and enjoy the journey.
>>27131785But the destination is the reward.
"A Paladin of Achilles, actually," you say. You give your old employer as much a kneel as you can manage, and reach out to kiss her ring. "She and a few of her friends decided to attack me while I was out having some fun with a couple of farmers. Being the only one of the four who didn't die in a single hit, I figured what the hell! Here I was with a bunch of free time on my hand between pillaging, why don't I take a leaf out of the ol' Dame's book and start up a collection of my own."The Marquessa pouts."I take it she's not a gift then..." She says, more than a little disappointed."Not as such, though once I get settled with a place of my own, I could invite you over to watch, I suppose." The paladin on your shoulder gets real squirmy when you say that for some reason. You've got to take a second to readjust her position, unless you accidentally drop her on her head. "I'm more looking for a sitter for a few days - I've got business in the city, and I need someplace to keep her where the yeomen won't stare.""The second dungeon is open, milady," Tom informs the Marquessa. "All seven cells. Business with the traffickers has been unfortunately slow this season, I'm afraid."Huffing, the Marquessa waves Tom off. "Very well, very well. You may the second dungeon for a fortnight or two, until you've gotten yourself situated in town. But there's a few things I want in return." Her pout turns into a smile. "One of my little beau's has been -cheating- on me again with a younger woman. I've already take care of procurement, but you were always so -good- at making them suffer.""I do take pride in my work," you say.Of course, that just gets your package even more irate."The second..." she gets a light shining in her eyes. "The next time you decide to go gallivanting off into the countryside, I want you to bring me back a present. Boy or girl, I don't really care, but they have to have that air of country innocence about them, you understand?">Field too long.
>>27131860>Those terms are more than reasonable, Amelia.>When do you want the boy to die? I'll have to schedule around it...>I'm not quite sure when I'll get another chance for a sojourn to the Fangs...>[OTHER]
>>27131704Dark Knight would be better. Antipaladin means that we'd almost certainly have to kill her ourselves at some point.Which would be fun in it's own way, but kind of wasteful overall.
>>27131830As I see it, the reward is having broken a devout paladin. Nothing can compare to that, not even tourturing babies infront of their parents.
>>27131873>Those terms are more than reasonable>When do you want the boy to die? I'll have to schedule around it...
>>27131873When do you want the boy to die? I'll have to schedule around it...
>>27131873>Those terms are more than reasonable, Amelia."I do understand, as a matter of fact, and would be only so happy to oblige."
>>27131873>Of course! Nothing could make me happier! That said, could you recommend a mage in town? One who possibly won't require brutal and immediate silencing after he divines the value of a few items for me?That's assuming we don't know one already, of course. We seem to have a fairly good set of connections.
>>27131873>Those terms are more than reasonable, when do you want the boy to... begin his long trip to the realm of death?
>>27131873>When do you want the boy to die? I'll have to schedule around it...>I will bring you a matching set, my darling dove. Pets live more fulfilling lives with a mate, after all, and twins are just so adorable. Maybe I can find some paladins...
>>27131873"Of course Amelia. I understand quite well. There is something about the ones who believe in honest work. It may be some time before I next go into the countryside, but when next I do I shall bring you your present.As for your beau, when would you like me to begin my work? It has been some time since I have had such a marvelous chance, I intend to draw it out for quite some time."Once we have come to an agreement kiss her on the cheek and head downstairs to situate our paladin.
I was just looking at our stats in the last thread.Holy fuck. We're literally superman. 22 STR unbuffed shouldn't even normally be possible for a human at our level. Even assuming +3 of that is from magical artifacts, 19 STR is still really high for our level, especially when combined with a DEX of 18 and INT of 16.Not to mention the fact that if we have a +3 STR item on top of our kickass armour and glaive, then we've probably snapped the wealth allowance for our level in half.
>>27132041If you look at the bottom of the character sheet it says we possess wealth in excess of Wealth Per Level because we're not a Caster to even things up a notch. Besides, playing a Caster wouldn't be as fun.
>>27132041We are an actual prodigy of misery, unlike the fools you read about in fairy tales.
>>27132041The Orichalcum glaive alone is enough to break the WBL into a million pieces. Assuming we're thinking about Immortal's Handbook Orichalcum here, that thing could buy us a small country.But hey, simple men, simple tastes.
Our anger gives us focus, makes us powerful.
>>27132070Only because it would be too easy. Ironically, with such a high INT, we'd be a pretty decent caster. As is it, we just get a shitload of skill points.
>>27132041Your starting stats were bought with 25 points:16 STR, 16 Dex, 12 Con, 14 Int, 10 Wis, 8 Cha You get a +2 to any from human, put into Strength, giving you18 STR, 16 Dex, 12 Con, 14 Int, 10 Wis, 8 Cha.You have 2 points from levels, both put into Strength:20 STR, 16 Dex, 12 Con, 14 Int, 10 Wis, 8 Cha. Those are your stats unbuffed. In addition, you have a Belt of Magnificence +2, giving a +2 enhancement bonus to all stats.>>27132087No, this is a homebrew I use in my personal campaigns. It only costs 50% more than Adamantine.
[Orichalcum] A magically enchanted form of gold. Orichalcum is extraordinarilly rare in nature, occurring naturally only when a lode of gold intersects with a point where two or more leylines cross. Manufactured Orichalcum can be made through a ritual lasting two hours that expends spell slots equivalent to four spell levels, in which the crafter (or crafters) must succeed at a spellcraft DC of 10, 15, and 20 and a Profession (Smelter) DC of 10, 15, and 20.Orichalcum weapons are always Masterwork Weapons, and count as Adamantine for the purposes of overcoming hardness and damage reduction. In addition, all Orichalcum Weapons are spell storing weapons - and are indeed so receptive to magic that a special option is available to wielders of Orichalcum Weapons.When the weapon does not have a spell stored, its wielder may perform an Arcane Parry as an Immediate Action. An arcane parry may only be applied to spells that require an attack action, or are "Burst" type spells whose center is within a space threatened by the wielder. When targeted by such a spell, the wielder may make an attack roll using their highest Base Attack Bonus opposing the spell's Save DC, or the caster's attack roll, whichever was higher, taking a -5 penalty to the roll. If the Parry Roll is higher than the DC or Attack Roll, the weapon absorbs the spell, and stores it as per the rules for Spell Storing Weapons.Orichalcum Armor functions as Adamantine Armor for the purposes of Damage Reduction. In addition, all spells cast on the wearer that have a set duration act as if the extend metamagic has been applied, harmful or beneficial. Wearers of Orichalcum Armor suffer a -2 penalty to their spell resistance, if they possess any. Orichalcum Weapons and Orichalcum Armors are immune to any spells that target weapons or armor - harmful or beneficial. Due to the magically receptive nature of Orichalcum, the price of magical enhancements to such items are halved.
>>27132096We've got good Int at 16, after magic items, and we also have really damn good Knowledge Arcana and Spellcraft, so we might not be able to cast spells ourself, but we know more about Magic than a lot of lower level casters.
>>27132132That Belt is horrifically overpowered for our level.And I mean that in the best possible sense.
>>27132167So it's basically Adamantine- typically the best super material you'll find- with a + attached? Suits me fine.
>>27132171We clearly do the kind of jobs andrun in the kind of circles that get us such wealth, which is a lot easier with zero scruples or respect for human life.
>>27131920>>Those terms are more than reasonable, Amelia.This.>>27131873
>>27132132So how do we stack up on a setting scale? Are there Elminsters walking around, or are we near the top in murder potential of individuals?I'm guessing that we're way beyond the average villain at the very least. We've got too much style for anything else.
>>27132207No, seriously. It gives +12 to our stats overall. That's Epic level stuff right there.
>>27132280It gives +2, no?Also, being mildly overpowered as an evil character is fun as fuck.
>>27132280are you always this much of a sperg, or do you just hate fun in quests
We killed a whole party of adventurers last night. We are a solo encounter.
>>27132298+2 to all stats. Which is +12 overall. That's incredible. That alone would be a reasonable wealth for a 10th level player.And I agree.
>>27132330>hurr durr I cant tell when someone is relishing how awesome something is
>>27132347(They were CL 5s, to be fair)
>>27132280Isn't like the magical item limits make any sense anyway. That and that is mildly overpowered in the short term. Which is awesome. Now for real overpowered go for a cheap ass build.
Lets get some normal person to suffer along with her. Then make her hate them via psyops. Let them betray her for slightly better treatment, etc. . .Then, when she is at her lowest point and has tons of repressed rage, give her a chance to vent it all on that person.
>>27132396Honestly I imagine some random gang of neckbeards right now being like."DM YOU DOUCHE!! Why are you dropping a CL+5 psycho on our ass already?
>>27132359Wow, you must be amazed by Pathfinder's +6/+6/+6 Mental Headbands and Physical Belts...No offense, but it's just a bunch of low level items in one slot. It's price is 25000 gp, a thousand more than the six +2 items. Hardly epic level. Hardly approaching 10th level WBL. It's practically standard issue at mid levels in 3.5.>Get back to writing!I hear ya.
>>27132442I already did that last thread.
My only problem with this quest thus far is that we're prioritising the paladin over everything else.Admittedly in the sense that we wish to corrupt her, but I still think having another long term goal would be good.Otherwise, she becomes the focus of our adventures and down that path, waifu-induced redemption beckons.
>>27132442>Well his CR says he's equal...
>>27132465>Redemption>Implying we can turn back>Implying the mountain of bodies behind us isn't too high to climb
>>27132514>implying we don't want to make that pile biggerBeing bad is just too much god damned fun.
>>27132465>Waifu redemption.>This crazy fuck...Nah no. Though for long term goals I imagine just spreading misery at the moment.
>>27132514>Implying we aren't having too much fun, and redemption is boring
>>27132504It'll start subtle, anon. We'll stop torturing innocents, and we'll excuse it with not wanting to waste time. Then we'll stop robbing people, talking about how they only have chump change.Before you know, we're a grumpy anti-hero with a Paladin sidekick nudging us into being a decent human being, with whom we have consensual sex in the missionary position with intense handholding every night.
>>27132563...Maybe we should just kill her and be done with it. Seriously. I can see her drawing the kind of person who'd support exactly this to the thread.
>>27132563We can fill out our party with people like her, and replace them with the females of the adventuring party that killed them. We could also get into the conquest business if we wanted.
>>27132563Why do you hate fun?
>>27132618Ehhhhh, conquest leads to ruling, which means way to much "delegation" and not enough hands-on slaughter.
>>27132563And they say we are the evil ones. Fucking sick and wrong.
>>27132642I love fun. As long as it's wholesome and morally healthy!
>>27132592....I think I might be one of those people.
>>27132649It could also lead to war in the name of chaos on a world wide scale. Just for shitts and giggles.
>>27132563Jesus fucking christ, how horrifying
>>27132618I'd rather build a dungeon, advertise it to the nearest town, and wait to see how many idiot will enter it.
>>27132677And that's why you will die first.
>>27132563>Villain Quest>Thread II>Implying the paladin will redeem usNo but seriously, this faggot brings up a good point - We have a pet project, but no long-term goals. Still, thread 2.
"Those terms are more than reasonable, Amelia. Though I must ask, is there a timeframe within which you want the poor boy dead? There are several ways that I could... prolong his suffering, but if you want him dead by a specific date..." You rub your chin, ignoring Blue's squirmings. Her mutters have died down to an almost sarcastic back talk, not that you can make any sense of it through the gag. "I'm probably going to be fairly busy over the next fortnight or so. I can schedule around it if need be, though letting a man stew in their own wounds can be a torture in and of itself..."Amelia waves you off."Do as you will," she commands. "Just have it done before this spring turns to snow. And be sure to tell me when and where you'll be going about your work - you know how much I love to watch.""Indeed," you say.Tom turns to you, and slaps Miss Blue on the ass before beckoning you to follow. "I'll take you down to Dungeon Two then, so you can get your paladin friend all set and situated."You've somewhat forgotten how big Amelia's Manse was since the last job you did for her - what was it, half a year ago now? The paintings in this particular wing of the manor, which leads down to dungeons, are all the sort that would have a common man stoned to death for public lewdness at best. At worst, portraits like the Rape of Helen would have them strung up for heresy and all their property confiscated. But for all Amelia's devotion to Crassus, she's quite the influential player at court.>Field too long
>>27132781>>27132781The dungeons themselves are located underneath a series of well hung statues, the levers to trip them being exactly what you would expect. A flight of stairs down, and you find yourself within a cold and moist room, with a floor that feels as ices beneath your bare feet. There are seven cells within the dungeon. Which one do you drop off your captive within?>One of the two with bars but no restraints. Let her move about for a bit.>One of the two with a long chain collar, giving the most freedom of motion.>One of the two with a cross, that binds the captive cruciform as per the Crassian Faith.>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.
>>27132754Long term goals? Easy: we corrupt this paladin, then use her knowledge of her order to destroy it in the name of Tepes.
>>27132754How about becoming the world's biggest asshole?
>>27132754The original thought from thread 1 was to make her fall, leaving her broken physically, mentally, and philosophically, a fate much more evil than death
>>27132789>>One of the two with a cross, that binds the captive cruciform as per the Crassian Faith.
This quest is right on the border of my fetishes. Okay no it's neck-deep in my fetishes. We captured a paladin, tied her up, now we're carrying her around and conversing about breaking her.My loins are in a perpetual state of "Stirred, but not (yet) awakened">>27132781>The Rape of HelenOkay no. Back in a few.
>>27132789>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.Let's keep her uncomfortable. You know how heroes like to try escaping if they have time to think.
>>27132789>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.Also we won't be corrupted by good if we don't keep her as our waifu. We could just let her go after she is nice and evil. This is how non-mage characters summon a demon.
>>27132789>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.Make sure that she can't put any weight on her toes. Let her hang for an hour or two and the tendons and muscles in her arms will be so weak she will be helpless.
>>27132789Put her on the cross upside down, duh.
>>27132789>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.She's still in a physical state capable of resisting, and as a paladin she'll probably try something rash if we give her half the chance. Let's not, at least not until she's been emotionally broken a little more. The restraints that place the most stress on the body are best, even if her divine healing powers will let her avoid the worst of it.
>>27132853Nah, we want her barely on her toes, so she has to either hurt herself, or focus on just holding herself up
>>27132789Let's start with just the bars and move her when she tries to sleep.
>>27132886An upside cross means humility before god.
>>27132789Definitely the adjustable manacles.I was just about to ask what sort of torture device the Crassus holy symbol was, but I already suspected it to be a cross.
>>27132789>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.We can always move her around later, but this would be a good start to induce fatigue. Better if we can give her an incentive to stand-tip to voluntarily...then she can break herself.
>>27132789Ungag Blue and talk to her before deciding which one she gets put in. "Hello there Blue. You see, you've been a bad girl, squirming, swearing, disobedience, and all sorts of unladylike things so we're going to have to put you in the dungeon to teach you some manners instead of letting you sleep in a nice soft bed, attended to by servants.But now we have to decide where to put you. Where do you want to be put Blue? If you ask me very nicely I might even listen to you."If she's not polite use the one with adjustable manacles and raise her up so she exhausts herself.
>>27132789>>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.keep her in this one for day or two.
>>27132789>>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.
>>27132886thats a great way to kill her
>>27132789>One of the two with a long chain collar, giving the most freedom of motion.
>>27132789>The one with the adjustable manacles, where you can keep her arms raised and her toes on their tips.
OP, we're having a hella time but please try not to make this whole thing about the paladin chick. It should be like a fun repeatble sidequest, let us go back to gruesome explicit violence and unecessary cruelty. Also tickle other fetishes
I've already voted, but one of the nice things about the adjustable manacles is that we have a clear and present method of punishment and reward. If she's good we can lower her a bit and put her in a less exhausting position, if she's bad we can raise her up more.
>>27133019aren't we putting her away so we can go do some other shit, like get an estate of our own?
>>27133019Leave, brutality, come home, fun, leave, more brutal brutality, home, more brutal fun, rinse, repeat, go to sleep in the blood. Keeps all parties happy! Minus the victims of course, though I guess they do get to meet their gods of choice.
>>27133020We need to attack her morals, not her well being, we need to release a bunny in her cell and get her to kill it for a loaf of bread or some shit
>>27133019This. Lets butcher+rape some children in front of their parents.
>>27133020not a bad idea. Speaking of which how will we be breaking her? Force her to choose between gradual escalating evil acts and let her rationalize it? Simple brute force Pavlovian conditioning?
>>27133019Agree.Well, aside from inserting fetishes, meh.>>27133100Too lowbrow. We can do better. Such as setting up a circumstance where the children end up murdering the parents. We're an artist, after all.
>>27133118Little bit of both.
>>27133100Pretty sure child raping is not happening on this quest.
>>27133139We have an assload of loot to hock, let's do that and try to find some fun on the way
>>27133100Too low brow. The correct answer is to have the kids chose which parent dies first. After beating grandpas rib cage in and forcing the kid to watch.
>>27133096The point of that is making her well and truly internalize that we have power over her and that all of her morals and ideals mean nothing when someone else has control.Also, the more exhausted she is the hungrier she'll be, the easier it'll be to push her to do bad things for her own survival and rationalize it.>>27133118Bit from column A, bit from column B, and also talking to her, getting her to realize that people don't care about her, that saving people is a waste of time. Nobody has come to save her, they've abandoned her to us. All the good she's done, all the people she's saved, none of this is coming to help her. And all the people she's saved, they weren't worth saving. They beg her for help, and the very next week they are cheating other people, or need saving again, and again. There's always going to be another group of bandits attacking people, another corrupt politician. All of her devotion is in vain and never did anything permanent.
>>27133187One of the special little tykes gets said ribcage as a hat for a bit as well.
>>27133139I do like that angle though, artistry is something we can focus on long term. Some sort of massive, gruesome edifice of evil - a tower built from the skulls of betrayed children perhaps. Something like that.
>>27133227If by hat you mean surgically implanted unicorn horn...
>>27133236A ground painting that can only be seen from 500' up in the air, done all in blood.
>>27133216We should make up a story about being saved from orcs by a Paladin much like her - it taught us that the weak die save for the whim of the strong, and eventually made us what we are. Ask her how many of us she has made in her adventures?
>>27133242If you by "surgically implanted" you mean "rib shoved into the forhead"
Convince her that her god has abandoned her and maybe fabricate some proof that the head priest of her order is a pedo.
>>27133297Of course, but gently, cause we want the kid to live as long as possible, we're not MONSTERS are we?
>>27133328>pedoReally? We can do better.
>>27133330yes we are
>>27133258Combine the two and I think we have a winner. Maybe a massive blood painting in honor of our pantheon? Blood fountains on the skull-tower to rain gore on all who approach, baptizing them for the honor. Banners made from the flayed skins of high ranking good clerics. Ooh, sounds like we need to hire an architect.
>>27133354BUt not HASTY monsters
>>27133349a cannabalistic pedo who hunts his prey with hounds
>>27133354I was going to say we're artists, and our preferred medium is pain, both physical and spiritual
>>27133216Another thought - we present a child and parent to the Paladin. The Paladin chooses which one will live and which will die - otherwise both die. The Paladin will most likely pick the child. Then we inform her that the child will have to kill the parent to leave. Unless, that is, she's willing to do the deed herself. Cue fall.
You of course head for the far cell. Whilst you do respect Crassus and his teachings - what with him being divine drinking buddies with good old Papa Vladimir - you're not a strict adherent to His Faith. Besides, your friend Tom might get offended if you lash her to the thing improperly. He was always a stickler for those sort of details, back when you and he were raiding buddies. You'd impale villagers on pikes, he'd grab the ones that tried to flee and nail them to a cross, and the two of you would stop for prayer once you were done, offering your works up to your respective gods."Alright Blue!" you say, flopping her on the floor. You chuckle a bit as she tries to wiggle away like some kind of big titted worm. "I'm gonna be leaving for a little while, but this is gonna be your new home for now."You untie the ropes around her arms. Were you feeling a bit more dramatic, you'd probably just cut it, but it's good rope you stole from that Yeoman, and you don't want to just waste it. She tries to throw a punch at you, but two days worth of being locked in the same position isn't exactly conductive to physical activity. You grab both of her arms, and lock them nice and snuggly into the... leather padded manacles.Right. You did sort of forget that Amelia uses these dungeons for -pleasure- more than she does for pain. Oh well, it's not like chafed wrists were all that big a part of your plan, and this lets you fit the cuffs much more snugly than you would normally be able to.In the spirit of these dungeon's original purpose, you decide that maybe one or two more humiliations would be appropriate. After adjusting the manacles to the position where you wanted them - raised well above her head, making her dance on her tiptoes to keep from hurting her arms - you pull out one of your daggers. Her eyes widen momentarily with that delightful fear of hers, before narrowing in defiance. Ready for whatever wounds you want to give her.>Field too long.
>>27133421Make sure to supply her with only a spoon to do the deed
>>27133439Of course, you don't plan on wounding -her-.Just her pride."You know, it get's a bit chilly down here at night," Tom tells you. "Your new pet might catch a cold like that.""I've worked in 'a bit chilly' before," you've said. "So her nipples might be able to cut diamonds come the morning, I hardly see how that's any of my concern. Besides..." You grin wickedly. "She's a paladin. Paladin's are immune to diseases.""Fair point," Tom says. "Well, I suppose you'll be off then."You take a look at the now naked paladin, and nod. Maybe you'll pick up something for her while you're out, now that her fugly gray tunic and britches are all in tatters at her feet. You're actually surprised - she's not crying like she was the other day when you pretended to feed her her old companions. She's just glaring bloody murder at you. Which is good - you want her focussed on you as the source of -everything- that happens to her. Good or ill.You leave, heading to...>The Warehouse. You've two tonnes of grain to drop off somewhere.>The Bazaar. Lets see how much you can get for your filthy lucre.>The Black Market.

No wait guys I got it. After we sell all our phat loot we need to buy some enchanted shit to boost our diplomacy or whatever we think it will take. Then we give her the classic villain speech.>We're not so different, you and I...
>>27133448MAGIC DISTRICTafter the black market
>>27133448Black market first, the armor would seem to be the "hottest" item we have, so we can use the grain in the cart to cover it up out of sight. Besides, who knows what me might see there for later?
>>27133448The Warehouse. You've two tonnes of grain to drop off somewhere.
>>27133454who eats babies
>>27133448>>The Black Market. You know a guy, who could use a Achilles' Guard Disguise...also seems likely spot for inspiration or opportunity
>>27133448> Black market, let's get rid of this outfit.>Afterwards, the Magic district, and hey, maybe we'll take the wizard too.
>>27133531Anyone with a little taste, pleb
>>27133461I'd rather *show* her the truth of evil than just tell her about it. Charisma isn't exactly our strong suit. Now, something that helps with grappling might not be a bad investment after our run-in with that cleric.
>>27133525We should kill some starving people by drowning them in it.
>>27133448>>The Warehouse. You've two tonnes of grain to drop off somewhere.Then,>The Magic District. There's a young wizard who owes you a favor or two...Given that we are a villain, i wonder about the reason for the wizard's debt.
>>27133448>The Black Market. You know a guy, who could use a Achilles' Guard Disguise...The less evidence on hand the better.
>>27133550The telling would be convincing her to try it willingly and show her that it is awesome.
ITT: asshole lancer quest and we just locked saber up in a rape dungeon.
>>27133448>The Warehouse. You've two tonnes of grain to drop off somewhere.>The Bazaar. Lets see how much you can get for your filthy lucre.>The Magic District. There's a young wizard who owes you a favor or two...>The Black Market. You know a guy, who could use a Achilles' Guard Disguise...We should do things in this order. We can probably find interesting stuff to buy at the black market and in the magic district, for that we need cash.
>>27133562I actually like this idea. We can do something creatively evil with the mundane shit we happen to have. Hire some really fucking poor people to haul the grain for us and then chop their hands off when they try to pinch some of it.
>>27133448>The Magic District. There's a young wizard who owes you a favor or two...Get our stuff checked out. Maybe pick us some good things for ourselves. After that head to the black market, warehouse, and bazaar.Maybe we could pick up some nice humiliation tools for Blue while we're out.
>>27133579Well, what do you want us to do? Spread our rank E luck all over her face?
>>27133608And then feed them their own hands
>>27133628donate them to the soup kitchens
>>27133562>>27133608I like the way you two think.Though let's try not to cause too much obvious trouble in the city, since we've obviously got contacts here and likely will have a base here. Having the guard after us would be more trouble than it's worth.
>>27133608I...actually kind of like this idea. It's not a definite that it'll happen, but it's not a bad plan. Or we can offer grain rewards for some sort of medieval bumfight death match. get betting going with the local bookie and get ourselves some cash off the suffering of others.
>>27133643Well, we eventually need to corrupt them too.We also need to put some ranks in disguise, for more of this lighthearted tomfoolery
>>27133643If we went about it the right way I bet we could get away with killing some poor people. Poor people don't have rights in medieval fantasy settings. The guards would thank a fine gentleman like us for ridding their city of some gutter rat "thief".
>>27133750>>27133679>>27133650Focus, focus. We're 'gleeful sociopath,' not 'inbred hill person.' We don't have to be dumb about our evil. We're In It to Win It, not to waste our (valuable) time.
>>27133448>The Black Market. You know a guy, who could use a Achilles' Guard Disguise...
>>27133812Soo...add a slow-acting poison to the grain before we sell it?
>>27133812I thought we got this grain in the first place by slaughtering a whole farmstead full of people just cause we thought it was fun.
>>27133835Don't shit where you sleep.>>27133840Exactly.
>>27133840I think that's where he got the "Gleeful". The slow poison's not a bad idea if we can cover our tracks, but it's something that would require a bit of planning.
>>27133840That's the gleeful part. And the initial quest hook. Whatever, don't look past the curtain.>>27133835We shouldn't shit where we eat, especially if it won't actually net us any money or prestige.
>>27133840Yeah. Still this guy has INT 16 so doing something so blatant in the city seems unlikely. He might do it outside the city though. Or behind closed doors. But right now I think he cares more about da monies.
>>27133860Then again, that's more the "evil merchant" route, it's not that in character at the moment. i recant my support.
>>27133835What if we accident kill all our contacts?
>>27133835Fuck no, or not at least without our contact knowing. We can't afford to piss of our contacts in this city (yet).
I don't think poisoning people in mass would be that fun. Like a single dude, that we could watch choke and suffer while his family looks on in horror and nobody knows what happened, that would be only time I would want to use poison to kill.
>>27133903Or it gets into our own food at some point.
>>27133903Why not just a poison that causes misery without death, like a light case of food poisoning? We could take advantage of the general malaise to get away with stuff we wouldn't otherwise. Just an idea though.
Lets sell out shit, and get out of here. City melodrama is boring. We should go and desecrate that temple from earlier...maybe steal some priestesses. I want a harem of broken, evil ex-holy warriors.
The Black Market is first on your list of places to be. Fortunately, it's not really a place, and more of a state of mind - actually, no, that's horse shit. But the point is, there are so many contact points for this Black Market throughout the City of Oblastgrad that almost every good that you purchase here has been through it at some point or another. After sipping tea with Amelia and her... fourteenth, you think... husband as is only polite, you iron out the details and favors you'll be doing for her in exchange for temporary lodgings, and are on your way.The nearest contact point is well within walking distance, so you leave the dead yeoman's wagon with one of Amelia's stablehands. The walk there is hardly unpleasant, though there is a distinct lack of back alley ways for you to kill someone in. Thinking on it, that's probably a good thing, as you'd like to avoid having the guard pressing on you.You mean, you could escape the city and kill everyone they sent after you, but you sort of want to set up a 'home base' here to keep your pets and your lucre."John Jacob Jamison!" you declare, stepping into a rather posh and well to do shop. All sorts of knick-knacks line the counters and windows - fine porcelain dishes from the Coast, brass clockwork from the Sandlands, bear fur rugs trapped fresh from the Fangs, and of course textiles made here in the City. Not a place you usually find yourself in, though you suppose you might be giving him some legitimate business once you buy yourself some land."Is that - it is!" The shopkeeper - Johnny, as you like to call him - says. He's part happy to see you, part utterly terrified of your presence; about as comfortable as anyone else who's never gotten into a scrap is about you. "By the Parthenon it's been too long, man! How were the fangs?">Field too long
>>27133946Nah. It just doesn't feel right so far. I can see him doing it in say a random village or something in the middle of no where for kicks. But not in a place where he has contacts. After all in the long term it is much more fun to cause suffering though slavery and the likes.
Black Comedy just archived, remember to upvote.
>>27133949I disagree, city melodrama is the most entertaining. Combat is a business, not a passion.We should find a hobby while we're here. How about we find a basilisk or cockatrice or medusa and we start the hottest new statue trend?
>>27133969"Auspicious," you declare, with a wide toothy grin. "Many good fights, many poor fights. Found myself a lovely little hawk that I want to going falconing with; still got to break her in though." You lean in, conspiratorially. "An' I also found a thing or three that ol' Trent MacFarlane might be interested in. You haven't seen him around, have you?""He's... he's on a job..." Johnny says, nervous.>What sort of job?

>>27134033Johnny proceeds to defecate.
>>27134043I'm all for playing nice if he is going to play professional. If he act's like a meek coward who wastes our time we should find another, better, fence.
>>27134033THE DICE GODS WILL IT.SO SHALL IT BE.
>>27134033Perfect. Use this.
>>27134043We aint gonna break him. This is just how you treat those beneath you. And he wouldn't stop being useful.
I think we should have a discussion about what type of "evil" we plan to be.
>>27133987>Johnny, what's the matter? Trent didn't do anything -stupid-, did he?So much this.
>>27134098Spontaneity is half the delight.
>>27134098Chaotic. It would be less of a comedy if lawful or neutral I think. We aren't motivated by ambition or greed or power, except so far as they let us do as we please. Evil is fun.
>>27134098Hah! What is this "plans" you speak of?
>>27134140>>27134158yea...but I think that going around and poisoning random people is boring and pointless. I guess you'r right. How about short term plans? Sell loot, buy items, break Blue?
>>27134158Eh, we can still do some planning and stuff.We're no chessmaster, but we're far from stupid. And sometimes art requires a little planning.
>>27134152Keep in mind that that's not what chaotic means. The Drow are Chaotic Evil, and that's an extremely rigid society, but one built on treachery and power climbing by guile and viciousness.Being gleefully evil is a personality, not an alignment.
>>27134170I share your sentiments, brother. Poisoning some prole "because we can," isn't very satisfying.Short term plans are "make money smoke weed get bitches." Sell the loot, generally annoy Blue.I think we should loot/murder/extort/scheme/etc our way to a nice penthouse in a respectable and wealthy part of the City. That, or we consider a move to a larger trade hub/population center.
>>27134170Break blue is more of a long term endeavor I think. It's like our downtime between bouts of joyous evil for its own sake. Shep talks to his crew after a mission, we torture a paladin - same thought process.
>>27134201I like how casually you equate torture to debriefing. You get it!We do have some peasants to kidnap for the Marquessa as well.
I think the original post last night established fairly well what kind of evil we are.>It's all so picturesque - the very portrait of a proud and honest yeoman's homestead.Or, well, it would be if you hadn't just finished slaughtering the yeoman and his family. Well, to be completely fair, you didn't kill -all- of them. You made the Yeoman and his wife choose which of their children they wanted to live, and then made them do the deed for shits and giggles.
>>27134197>That, or we consider a move to a larger trade hub/population center.That's probably The Capital, where there's no way we could get away with smuggling Blue in.
>>27134152Yep. Chaotic evil. My favorite alignment if played smart.Problem is most people really suck at making good Chaotic evil.
>>27133987>Trent didn't do anything stupid did he?Then throw in something about his thick accent and beard, even if he doesn't have one it works as a test to make sure Johnny is still Johnny, not to mention Ironic humor is in no way above us, or below uscaptcha: soluble whygarI was not aware whygar's were soluble
>>27134201>>27134222perfect.>>27134232....Awesome.I like this type of evil. Cruel and sadistic and smart about it.>>27134259you must have flunked basic chemistry then.
>>27134232Yeah, there's a part in "Grunts" where a couple of halflings murder a family and then roast the baby for kicks and to throw the guards off the trail. All for a quick robbery, that's kind of what I envision us to be. Escalating basic evil acts to something bigger and grander.
>>27134232And killed the rest of the kids after the parents were dead anyways.Can't have orphans growing up as avengers.
>>27134197The City of Oblastgrad is about as big as any city you're going to get on the continent. The Capital is the only one that can compare, and it's only bigger because it's essentially a walled in -country-. Fuckin' fascists everywhere in there, too, always detecting evil and whatnot. High and mighty little shits who consider themselves the "last bastion of Law and Justice."Oh, how Quinn would love to raise that city, or at least corrupt the ever loving shit out of it.
>>27134294>Oh, how Quinn would love to raise that city, or at least corrupt the ever loving shit out of it.Raze, you mean?
>>27134278We are personal too. Need to see our handiwork and revel in the carnage, is why poisoning strangers would bore us. Or atleast not be worth the potential consequences.
>>27134307Nope, raise. Put a volcano under it and we're good.
>>27134271clearly I must have flunked it
>>27134294The Long War, brother! The Long War.Sounds like this city is as good as any without a major move and shift in locale - not that I'm against this, we just need to take care of the logistics before we commit.Can we get a quick rundown/tl;dr of the geography of the known world, hoss?
>>27134307Whoops. Yeah. That sort of Raze.
>>27133987>Johnny, what's the matter? Trent didn't do anything -stupid-, did he?Being intimidating is fine and all, but we're not the sort of stupid thug who's quick to do it so overtly. Let's be the right kind of scary if we're going for scary. If it's worth doing it's worth doing right.
>>27134334You don't mean slowly build up a loving, caring village, only to tear it down and watch the betrayal on everyone's faces?
>>27134376I've always enjoyed saying "Raze it to the ground" because of that particular homophone.
[Option: Intimidate the Scaredy-Fence][Secondary Option: In a Classy Manner][Intimidate Check: 20 + 13 = 33][Intimidate DC: 10 + 1 + 3 = 13][SUCCESS!]"Johnny, what's the matter?" you ask the man. "'Cause you're fuckin' quiverring in your boots over there, and I don't much care for it. Some rookie chucklefuck on the guard refuse his bribe? That happens sometimes. You sell out the market? Well then I'd have to kill you; but I know that you're not the type." You look him dead in the eye, and oh sweet Tepes the punk is all but sobbing. "Oh bloody fucking hell, Trent went and did something -stupid- didn't he?"The fence is now visibly shaking. Reminds you kind of like how that halfling was before you went and cut his fat wizardly head off. You wonder if... you don't have a set, but you're fairly sure that if you gave the man a set of - was it Moroccos? That gourd and rice instrument. But yah, if you gave the man a set of those, you could probably bust out a smooth little jig to the sound of his fear."Yeah... he... he..." Oh great, now the man -is- sobbing. Or, well, stuttering, which is one step below."Okay. Here's what we're gonna do, Johnny," you say. "You're going to tell me where Trent is and what the balls he's gotten up to that's making you piss yourself, or I'm going to cut out your tongue out and feed it to my pet hawk, savvy?"Actually, you might just find a tongue or two and feed it to Blue anyways. That would be hilarious."He's gone nuts, man, nuts!" Johnny says. "He took over and... and started making loans to folks desperate enough to go to him - and I can understand torturin' them, or even outright killing them. But he's takin' it out on their -kids- man... I... I don't want any fucking part of this, man... just... he's at Fourth and Sven, last I heard.

>>27134428>>Oh! Thanks, Johnny. Fourth and Sven... thats down by docks, right?
>>27133421This man is an artist.I think rather than make her actually enjoy evil, we simply need to make make her commit evil of her own free will. Maybe even let her even think what she's doing is an act of defiance against us. Once we make her do something truly awful and she's all "oh no what have I done?", if she's not driven to suicide, we let her wallow in self-loathing for a while before coming up with an amusing way to off her.Making her into some sort of dark knight or antipaladin isn't as fun and will just lead to waifuing.
>>27134440>I believe you Johnny,Because if you were setting me up, or if you were going tobetray me later, do you know what I would do? Well....Chuckle.....just imagine
>>27134440>Well, someone's got to make sure you don't betray the secrets, ol' chum.Clearly we need to kill Johnny soon. Come back at night and lock him in his shop, then burn it down.
>>27134440>Oh! Thanks, Johnny. Fourth and Sven... thats down by docks, right?"And if if I catch a whiff of this going to the guard, you'll wish you had kids i could take it out on instead of you." *smile* "You don't have kids, right? That would be embarrassing!"
>>27134440I guess he is no longer useful. He has demonstrated he is willing to betray somebody for the same shit we do. If we think we can get away with it, kill him. If not, plan to kill him at a later time of convenience.
>>27134428>>Oh dear, that's horrible. I'll be sure to never ever deal with any child killers, something that I definitely am not.We sell them, not kill them.

>>27134507Nah. We're more valuable to him than Johnny, and that's why.Do snitches get stitches? Yes, yes they do. Rats get bats. But we need to play the long game. We'll vet and groom someone to replace Johnny and Trent....in a bit. For now, Johnny lives. It's a convenience thing.
>>27134556Rather, we're more valuable to Johnny than Trent. muh b.
>>27134481No, no no. As long as she can rationalize it, it won't have an impact on her. Make her have another prisoner who is a dick to her, and drives her temper up to the wall. Who keeps selling her out for minor amounts of better treatment while she takes the noble route. Her anger will build, and build, and build, and then we give her a weapon and a chance to vent. But she cannot vent on us. Only on them.
>>27134440>>Well, someone's got to make sure you don't betray the secrets, ol' chum.
>>27134593Elaborate plot to get her to kill an innocent by mistake. Let her find a weapon and think she is escaping all on her own and the only person in her way is this one horrible evil jail keeper who is actually some bright eyed young paladin who thinks he is guarding some horrible murderer.
>>27134647Yesyesmake sure to give them clothes that both make them read as evil to detect evil
>>27134673We could condition an addiction to something evil into her. Food contains a addictive drug, feeding time coincides with torture time for dude in cell next to hers. Eventually feed her occasionally with out the drug in it, and without torturing the guy. She will figure out she feels like shit whenever she doesn't get to hear a guy scream in agony every day. Then lead into some subtle scenario where she can hurt somebody her self while she is jonesing.
"Oh I do hope you haven't told the guard about any of this, Johnny," You say, smiling pleasantly. "Why, if you did, well the old eidetic is that 'snitches get stitches', if I do recall correctly. And well, if anyone but -me- hears about this sort of thing happening... I'm a devout follower of Papa Vladimir. A ripped out tongue fed to my pet hawk is gonna be the least of your concerns, understand." You rap him on the forehead with your knuckles, like an older brother chastising his younger sibling. "Well, then you might wish that you had kids that I could take things out upon..."Thanks for the info, Johnny! Fourth and Sven... Fourth and Sven... that's down by the docks, isn't it?"Johnny nods, the light of fear strong in his eyes. You clap him on the shoulder, turn around, and walk out of the shop, waving pleasantly. Right as you hit the door, you stop for a beat, a thought running through your mind. "Wait a tick!" You call back to him. "You don't have kids, right? That'd be awkward right there, it would!"There isn't a response. You suspect the poor fellow may have passed out behind the desk. Either that, or he's locked himself in his office to go quiver under a mountain or three of paper work. Either way, you don't have much use for him any more - you -could- just torch the place, if you really wanted to. Of course, Johnny's probably in with the Merchant's Guild these days, and they've got a habbit of not letting things go, if you cross them.Smart.

>>27134942Pretty much this.
>>27134882Maybe because it went up at 6 AM and OP realized not enough people were on?Or maybe it wasn't even OP, but he saw it and stole it for later? Different tripcodes, after all. Or maybe that's because he felt he could draw in some of the HP Nasu audience if he used the same tripcode. If so, that worked.

While you would very much like to go down and congratulate good ol' Trent for finally joining you and Tommy in the murdering people and their kids for shits and giggles club, Fourth and Sven is down in the docks. As you actually had hopes of getting something done besides dropping the slut off at Amelia's, going to the docks is a none-option. It's no where near any of the other things that you were planning to visit, except the far side of the Magic District. The Bazaar is closest, but even that's better traveled by wagon than by foot, and if you go back for the cart, you may as well sell off the Grain to Wintram.Besides, if he's in charge now, Trent might have something interesting for you to do. And interesting things, often enough, require you to be able to move large amounts of goods or chattel from one place to another.The walk back to the Manse is every bit as dull as the walk to it; you understand Amelia's desire for seclusion from the denser areas, but you don't particularly like it. The Warehouse District is mercifully close, only about fifteen minutes by your cart. You know a guy who will give you decent money for the grain - you've used his warehouse for certain procedures on more than one ocassion.Unfortunately, the guy he posts outside of his place seems to have caught a sudden case of death. A quick look tells you that the poor sod died of bladed weapon to the throat - or magic that mimics such. You sigh - you're not going to be able to sell this bloody grain, if some chucklefucks are killing the people you plan to sell to.The best option to take here is to...>Head into the Warehouse, see what the devil is going on in there.>Take a closer look at the dead fellow.

Rolled 3Keep writing, based QM. I am still here to read and give input.
Okay, no. Dead guard outside of a warehouse known for having sketchy shit go down inside of it? Either someone forgot to send you an invitation - in which case you are well within your rights as a villain to get your murder going - or someone is trying to get an in on your territory. In which case, -you are well within your rights to get your murder going-! You don't bother sneaking around or checking the dead guy out - there are few enough people in the world who could actually pose a threat to you that you don't feel the need to bother.You just pull out your glaive from your quiver. You check your hair in the blade's reflection - got to make sure it's of sufficient 'devilish handsomeness' before you make your dramatic entrance. Satisfied, you wind up your leg...And kick the door off of it's hinges."HEY GUYS!" You announce to warehouse. "WHAT'S GOING ON IN HERE?"You can pretty much tell. Let's see - people in a bunch of creepily matching robes, eldritch symbology painted in what is no doubt goat's blood, candles everywhere to give dramatic lighting. They must have gotten a discount virgin, though, because the person hogtied in the center of their alter isn't a naked hot chick. It's some fat smelly guy with a beard growing out of his neck.Still naked though. And you sort of wish he weren't, as now that mental image isn't going to leave your head for a while, and -boy howdy- is it unpleasant."Champion of the Righteous!" One of the robed guys says, pointing at you with a bony finger. "You were foolish to come alone! Soon, our ritual will be complete, and the darkness that we shall summon forth shall wash over this world, painting it with misery and suffering.">Field is too long.

"Look, I'm just trying to sell some grain I picked up to a contact of mine. Do you know where he is?"
Is it weird that I cannot help but imagine Quinn's face looking like this? Especially when hes doing his intimidating/sarcastic/friendly banter?

The -hot- one with the nice tits is supposed to be on the altar. Also, shouldn't you be doing this in some place of power like a desecrated temple or something? How's a man supposed to make a dishonest living if amateurs keep mucking up his places of work? Why I remember when I was making my first dark rituals, we did things properly back then...!
>>27135667YOU FUCKER. WE WERE FRIENDS. WE WERE FRIENDS, THEN YOU SHIVVED ME.I've never been more proud of you... T_____T
>>27135689Why not murder them all like the plebs they are and hijack the ritual? We'll simply increase the blood spilt to make up for the lack of virgins.
>>27135712We don't want a demon running loose. It'll cause more trouble than it's worth.Plus, we want to cause pain and suffering personally, not let a demon have all the fun.
Rolled 13>>27135696Heh. Its almost like we're roleplaying being evil bastards, hey?...wait a minute...
>>27135731Maybe we're strong enough to kill the demon and get some phat loot. Maybe we'll just see if the demon is interested in offering us a deal.
>>27135770not enough guaranteed reward for a whoooole lot of risk. I would not advise.
>>27135742Ohgodyouarerightfuuuuuuck>>27135731So, you don't want a demon glaive? Or even just make a friendly deal? 'Sides, what the fuck do we care about some demon as long as it fucks off from our warehouse and doesn't bother us.
>>27135770>>27135827We are not making deals with demons. That shit never ends well.
Rolled 2>>27135827Nononononononono. You dont just let a demon get summoned in a warehouse with peoples tied to you and people you know and let it wander off to wreak havoc. Thats a good way to have adventurers and paladins and shit investigating. Last thing we need is MORE distractions. We already have enough to do right now, lets just get our grain/wheat sold and out of our hands so we can go visit Trent.
>>27135827I'm actually wondering if we can beat a demon so hard it cries.On a side note do you think a demon would be a good cell mate for Blue? I mean she'd certainly hate it. She might even welcome our visits just to get a break from it.
>>27135898The XP we'd get from murdering the cultists or demon would be more valuable than the demon's life. It makes no sense to leave it alive.>>27135892is right. We've got enough to do without taking on another project as volatile as a demon. That's for the outdoors.
You sigh. You hate amateurs."Guys, you're doing this ritual wrong," you say. "First off - you, grandpa. Why are your robes the same as everyone else's, when you're clearly the leader of this little shindig?"Stepping forward towards the old bony fellow who is no doubt their leader, you pointedly ignore the fact that everyone in the room simultaneously draws a wicked looking dagger. They seem to notice that you seem to give zero fucks about their weapons, and share nervous glances with one another. By the time that you get up to King Purple Robes (You're gonna have to come up with a better name than that), all of them are shaking, and half had dropped their weapons."Are you questioning my-""Look, Melvin," you throw an arm around the old guy's shoulder. "May I call you Melvin?""My name is not Mel-""Melvin, listen," you interrupt, not really caring what his name is. "You're doing this ritual all backwards; besides wearing the same damn thing as all of your followers, I mean. Just look at the sacrifice that you've prepared" You stab the fat guy, killing him instantly. "I mean, sure, I guess his tits were big, and I suppose that he must have been a virgin, but seriously. He was fat, and he was ugly. Freakin' -fugly-. You don't offer a Demon or Devil or whatever a fugly sacrifice, it's just not done.""You... you killed our sacrifice!" Melvin exclaims, furious. "BROTHERS! SISTERS! TO AR-"You put a hand over the old man's mouth. The various brother's and sisters of his order, well they seem more than a bit less than sure of themselves. They should be, of course, but given their leader's fervor you'd have thought all sense had abandoned them.>Field too long...
>>27135915"Don't worry Melvs, he wasn't a good sacrifice." Looking around the room, you curse the confounded bagginess of cultist robes. Makes it hard to determine which chick has the most -confidence- of the lot. "You there. Mauve, not purple - and yes there is a fucking difference - get up here. Nothing to be afraid of." You chuckle. "Well actually, that's a lie, but I can promise you that if you do die, yours will be swift and painless."The mauve robed one steps forward. Nervously. Her steps stuttering."See," you say when she finally gets up here, flipping her hood back. "-This- is the type of person you should be sacrificing to the pit. They've got plenty of fuglies down in hell, it's the pretty ones they want." You turn to the girl. "You ever have sex before, Mauve?""Y-yes..." she says. "So... so I wouldn't be a good sacrifice. They need to be pure...""Nonsense!" You say. "The demons prefer the ones who know their way around the block, male or female. That way they spend less time cryin' and more time... well, doing other things."You push the old man to the ground with one hand, and flip the Mauve robed dame onto the alter with your other. The fat fugly corpse, you shove off with the girl's body, grinning a bit as she thrashes against your grip. You keep her pinned down, and turn to your impromptu audience. Hilariously, a few of them are taking notes - no doubt mindless things like 'flip girl onto alter', rather than the important stuff.Like how you've got to -hate- for the magic to work."And -this- is how you prepare a sacrifice," you shout over the girl's screams. "No need to strip 'em down like you did the fugly fellow - may as well just let them keep their dignity, till they get down to the depths." You pull out a dagger from one of your pockets. "'Course, when they get down to the depths, don't matter who's got dignity and who don't - it's all a bloody orgy of pain and lust down there!">Field. Too. Long.
>>27135898UGH theres always one voice in here who is constantly thinking about the woman, for once I'd like to go out and sell some illicit goods, beat up some innocents, and kick down a couple doors, without thinking of what awaits me back home
>>27135927You look the girl dead in the eye. "Say hi to the Incubi for me, Mauve. Tell them Quinn sent you for them to enjoy."Your knife falls, piercing the girl's heart.>[Roll 1d20] for Spellcraft.

[Spellcraft Check: 16+16 = 32][Spellcraft DC: 15+9+5 = 29][SUCCESS!]You recognize the spell as the girl's blood powers it. It's not one that can be replicated very easily, and if you were being at all honest, you would actually applaud these dumb fuckwits for not screwing it up. A well defined magic circle against evil outsiders, the mathematical formulae arranged such that the alter serves as the nexus. And hell, they even -fixed- the damn thing from the broken version that can be found in the Duodecim Ex Mortis, by adding an emotional trigger.Yeah, -GATE- is something that you don't see every day. You're honest impressed.A Demon - or at least, you'd assume that it's a demon - steps forward from the glowing rift that your malice tempered in this girl's blood tore open in the fabric of reality. The reason why you even have any doubt is the way that it looks - you can't quite tell if this thing is male or female. Mostly because it's not exactly what you would expect a demon to be - no muscle bound red skinned horned ubermensch with cloven feet there. Nor cute faced girl with bat wings and knockers thrice the size of her head. Kind of disappointing, either way. But it's still impressive.Mostly because it seems to be a wheel. A wheel made out of eyes. And fire. You're fairly sure you can smell most of the cult shitting themselves at the sight of the thing. You, on the other hand, are just curious. What you'd -like- to know about this fire-wheely-eye thing is whether or not you can kill it; or, more importantly, what weak points are on its anatomy...Of course, you're not distracted enough by the creature to see the girl return to life, and a matching Gate open up beneath her. You wink at her, as clawed hands grab at every part of her, covering her screams and ripping at her clothes, dragging her down into the abyss. You mouth "Have Fun!" at her, before turning to the Demon.>Field too long.

>>27136292Fun fact: if you take the Biblical description of Ezekiel's Wheel literally, you get Thrones. If you take it figuratively, you get fighter jets. That's totally serious, too.
>>27136299Not sure about this. It might be a good idea. But it also would mean Melvin would be the guy doing negotiations.
>>27136404That's why I advised that we coopt the ritual. We DID basically do it for them.

We should totally ask this demonguy if he's one of Tepes palls.
>>27136416Yeah. But if he does fuck up then it might screw with the spell or something like that.
Okay, as far as things go... okay, no, you haven't actually experienced anything more bizarre than this. But hey, it's -GATE- that we're dealing with here, a magic so powerful that it doesn't even exist within the normal parameters of the Five Orders of Magic. Well, it -does-, hypothetically, exist within the Order parameters, but only if one were to account for the possible existence of four additional orders of spell - and even then, it is of such magnitude that it is a Spell of the Ninth Order. The forces involved are enough that you could harness the energy use to -stop time- for a brief period.Hardly anything to sneeze at. But the problem is, this leaves you in a bit of a conundrum, as you don't have any witty quips prepared for this sort of situation. Had it been, say, a Succubus, you would have just told it to start a death orgy and be done with it. Had it been, say, a Kalavacus, you would have just had it kill everyone else and be done with it. But this... thing... you aren't sure just what to do with it."Hi Demon!" You say. "I'm Quinn. You mind if I call you Eyes-"[YES. WE MIND THIS NAME, summoner]"Well okay then..." You go and pick up the old man. "This is Melvin. Everyone else in the room is one of Melvin's followers. You looking for a soul or seventeen to snack on? Because they're not doing anything of worth with theirs, so if you want to munch on them, that's fine by me."[THIS OFFERING IS ACCEPTABLE, summoner. THE PACT IS SEALED.]>Field too long.
>>27136521You see the bodies of the cult sort of float into the circle. Those who haven't been knocked unconscious out of shock and fear are panicking, trying to escape from whatever grip the Demon is using. Honestly, it's kind of amusing; one or three of them is trying to -swim- through the air, away from the circle. As they cross, they all sort of melt, the Demon Creature Thing devouring them in a thick and goopy soul slurry. You're wondering whether or not you did that girl a mercy, sending her down to the rape pits of the second circle.[THIS IS POSSIBLE. HER SOUL IS STILL HER OWN. THEIRS HAVE JOINED THE SCREAMS OF MY THOUSANDFOLD CHORUS.]"Well that's not creepy at all," you say. "So, you mentioned a 'pact' of some sort being involved. Is this the sort of pact where I get some immediate tangible benefit in return for the souls you just ate, or is this one of those things where I do you a favor in exchange for an empty promise, and then I wind up naked in the marketplace without a clue of how I got there?"[BOTH, ACTUALLY.] The creature... you're gonna go with 'says'.

There's also Lesser Geas as an alternative option.Hope we can find an old Inquisitor of Tepes buddy.

"That was a pretty neat trick you pulled there," you tell the Demon. "You... I don't know -what- you did, but where you turned them all into a soul slurry and just drained them dry of their -selves-. Man, being able to do that... oh, the amount of death and suffering I could bring in Tepe's name. It would be so much -fun-."The Demon looks at you square in the eye. You return the intense gaze, trying to not break contact with all of the uncountable eyes that dot the figure. Really a bad idea, now that you think on it, considering that whatever the hell this thing is, it's -made- of eyes. And fire, a flame that burns so bright that you honestly can't stare at it for too long, unless you want to burn your sight away.[THIS POWER IS BEYOND MY ABILITY TO GRANT.]Your shoulders slump. Well that's disappointing - you were sort of looking forward to making a collection. A collection of souls, plucked fresh from your fallen enemies, that you might be able to continue tormenting them after their deaths. Creating a little chorus of despair and agony of your own, to sing you softly to sleep every night. Truly a beautiful desire...[HOWEVER, A SIMILIAR ABILITY IS WITHIN MY MEANS. DO YOU ACCEPT, summoner?]"HELLS YEAH!" you all but shout in glee. "Hit me with it, Wheel and Fire Eye Guy. Grant me the power to taste the souls of my enemies, and immortalize their everlasting despair!"[VERY WELL. THE PACT IS COMPLETE.]You wonder for a moment what he means.And then your entire vision turns -white-. Sweet Tepes impaling children in the Black Forests of Wallachia, whatever that thing did to you -hurts-. You hear a silent chuckling, and try to spit at the fucking bastard. You've had worse pains, once, when you were poisoned with that thing that made all of your muscles twitch at once, breaking your skeleton. But this one is less all of your bones shattering simultaneously, and more white hot liquid fire being poured through your veins.>Field too long.
>>27136836You smell the stench of sulfur.You wake up to a strong arm shaking you shoulder - you can feel the gauntlets grasping through your Kikko. For some reason it feels a bit tight, particularly around your chest. Your hair dangles down in front of your eyes - Tepes, how long have you been out? The voice speaking to you is clearly worried - maybe it's Tom or Amelia - and slowly drags itself into focus."Miss," it says. "Miss, are you alright?"You take a look at the fellow shaking you awake - shiny fullplate, reddish-brown hair, almond eyes, and tanned skin.>Okay lad, I know you're stunned by my beauty, but I -am- a man, after all.>That's odd. I don't remember getting kicked in the head by a goat last night.>OH SWEET TEPES WHAT THE DEVIL DID THAT THING DO TO ME?>[WRITE IN]
>>27136846>Okay lad, I know you're stunned by my beauty, but I -am- a man, after all.
>>27136846>>That's odd. I don't remember getting kicked in the head by a goat last night.
>>27136846>>Okay lad, I know you're stunned by my beauty, but I -am- a man, after all.Son of a FUCK. He turned us into a succubus, didn't he?
>>27136877nah, he just genderbendered us.
>>27136846oh boy. your magical realm, OP? Really? i hope this isnt permanent. i SAID there was polymorph with demons>OH SWEET TEPES WHAT THE DEVIL DID THAT DEVIL DO TO ME?
>>27136893Oh man, think of the shenanigans we'll be able to pull of with Blue now.Come down, pretend to be someone else and try to rescue her, then SURPRISE spirit breaking
>>27136877Well nowwe can have fun with blue with out turning her preggers
>>27136846We just become a succubus, didn't we. >Check our -confidence-
>>27136910If he is succubus I think his first thought would be switching to incubus. Because it would really suck to get stuck in female modo when the right spell is cast.
>>27136846>>OH SWEET TEPES WHAT THE DEVIL DID THAT THING DO TO ME?Gentlemen we are now ladies.
>>27136935no its better this way
>>27136948Time to smother children with our bussom?
>>27136846Sure the guy is right and we've been turned into a chick, quite possibly of the demonic variety.But that does not excuse this man for not greeting us like the incredibly handsome man we once were.Murder him.Then try out new soul sucking abilities.
>>27136846WE HAVE BEEN TRICKED
>>27136952Fuck that we're going to become a guy again even if it kills us.
>>27136971AHAHAHAHHAHAYou're killingOh god I'm going to diemy sides have abandoned me in my time of need
>>27136971To be fair, the eyewheel flat out told us that he would both grant our wish and fuck us over.But hey, at least we got soul sucking abilities out of it, although they're probably of a method we don't really want to use.
>>27136846what in the fuck just happened?fucking what?....just, what?
>>27136905She'll just cast her detect evil shit
>>27136980Look at it this waywe now have new ways to torture people also control them
>>27136998we MAYBE have soulsucking.I told you brotold you bout that mystery box
I'm going to hit the hay, for now. I've got a busy day tomorrow.And yes, you were just turned into a succubus. Fortunately, Alter Shape at will is a thing, and you can take the form of any small or medium humanoid you wish. As soon as you figure out how to do it right.
>>27137002we are this now
>>27137002On the bright side?Change shape. At will. MOTHERFUCKERS!.
>>27137007To be fair, I think Mystery Box won by one vote... though that MIGHT have been what fucked us over.
>>27137020damnit man. i am not okay with this now
>>27137020TIME TO SMOTHER CHILDREN WITH OUR CHEST
>>27137020Next thread when?And long term, is this going to end up a higher priority than HP Nasu?
>>27137020Oh, so other than the forced species change, we don't really have much of a problem.Other than whatever horrible downsides succubi have.I mean we can just will ourselves back into our old form.
>>27137024Yesnow we can truly sow some chaosalsolesbians
>>27137025Not gonna lie though. Could be worse.We're probably gonna get some sick abilities and stat adjustments...right?
>>27137020When's the next session?Also, fuck yeah a new way to decive people.
>>27137020What time for the next thread?I'm decently interested.Always fun to be the bad guy
>>27137036Next Thread Wednesday at the earliest.
>>27137044And we have a bit of magic nowand can smother children with our chest
>>27136846Offer to suck his Dorf
>>27136971Oh god this is still fucking hilarious
>>27137044Str 13, Dex 13, Con 13, Int 16, Wis 14, Cha 26 Is the standard stat block for one. Now assuming it is the same then that is a total of.+3 STR +3 DEX +3 CON +6 INT +4 WIS +16 CHAThis assumes of course that they are the same in this world.Though I'm going to die laughing at seeing Quins reaction.Though honestly I see the big problem he would have being the default form. I don't t think he would give a shit if it wasn't that the right spell could break his change and turn him back into a chick.
>>27137095I think the whole "being a succubus," might be a thing for him too. You know. He was pretty happy about all his boy parts.
>>27137095I'm using Pathfinder's Succubus actually, which is +2, +6, +10, +8, +4, +16 for STR, DEX, CON, INT, WIS, CHA.http://www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/monster-listings/outsiders/demon/succubus
>>27136971I do believe this picture is a more apt summation.
>>27137095>be charismatic as fuck nowwelp time to go take leadership and get an army.but we also should probably figure out a way to get our strength stats back up since we seem to have been an extremely high level fighter.cause that sucks.
>>27137146>>27137125Did you not see this
>>27137118Yeah which is what I meant by Default form. I don't think he would give a shit about being a demon. But he would that any random mage could hocus pocus his form into female without his permission. That would be a real boner kill you know? After some random broad then suddenly chick.
>>27137146Your current stats, as a succubus, are:24, 24, 24, 24, 16, 26
>>27137158no one seems to noticeAlter Shape at will is a thing, and you can take the form of any small or medium humanoid you wish. As soon as you figure out how to do it right.>As soon as you figure out how to do it right.
>>27137177at least we got pretty buff.With that Suggestion and Dominate Human we are going to be a real motherfucker.
>>27137177I feel sorry for everything that isn't us
>>27137177huh didn't realize that, sorry.
>>27137146That is a add on I'm fairly sure bro. When one plays a monster they typically roll. Take the average stat of the monster and minus 10 to get how much stronger it is then the norm. Then add it to the rolls.So assuming we go that route which I think we will he just got a +2 bonus.
>>27137020>>27137050So first off, this is pretty fun stuff, keep up the good work. I like.Now as much as I hate to bring it up, I really must mention HPNasu. Specifically the end of the last thread, and how you said you would make another the next day, then didn't. I know that stuff happens sometimes, but you really should post an update on twitter if you're not going to follow through, much less if you're going to wait two days then start up an entirely different quest out of the blue.You've got some very loyal fans on that front, but good lord you should at least keep them appraised of a rough schedule. Its just common courtesy.I will say though that the lack of communication is the only gripe I have, your threads themselves are remarkably civil and fun, never lose that.
>>27137125>Greater teloport>at willwhat the shit?
>>27137255Oh this is going to be fun
>>27137125>can summon a babau demon as a minion once per day>suggestion, greater teleport, and vampire touch is literally at will>DR/10, immune to fire, electricity, poison and cold and acidholy fuck that is some serious bullshit.that just craps on wizards parades pretty hard if they cannot into past 5th level spells cause at best they can polymorph self into shit to fight you and even then you have DR 10/cold iron/goodgod damn we are a force of hatred and malevolence.
>>27137318sorry resistance 10 to cold and acid, but still holy flying fuck.
>>27137255> A succubus is formed from the souls of particularly lustful and rapacious evil mortals. did the fucker kill us?
>>27137318Dominate bluemake her do naughty thingslike hold our hand
Steps in order1. Become loli2. Teloport to random village.3. Pretend to be half dead.4. Assuming kindly commoners take us in. We pretend to rest a few days.5. Slowly slaughter village. When the last family the kindly group that took us in is left. Turn back to original form and start mocking them.
>>27137352>not giving profane gifts to the family thats left and walk away with them being forever cursed with demonic favors.remember pathfinder succubi are retarded powerful for its CL
>>27137352its so deliciously evilI LOVE ITalso we can get our friend the country child she wanted
>>27137334Don't think so. If he did we would be in the lower planes right now. Instead I think he just used the pact and remodeled our soul a little.
>>27137381Not much at all seeing our previous actionsaww wellits not like this wouldn't have happened when we died anyways
>>27137390>implying we would be turned into a succubus and not an incubus>or a balor
Though the most amusing thing is Quin is now immortal.
>>27137445Wellthe world is proper fuckedin more than one way
>>27137464>quins new goal is figureing out how to fuck the sky.
>>27137318You didn't mention.>Ethereal Jaunt>detect good as a constant effect.>Profane gift....hey guys..what would happen if we used profane gift on blue? For the suggestion at range ability.
>>27137486Too easylets instead slowly corrupt her with our lewd ways
>>27137490Nah I don't mean use it like that. I mean laugh at her misery she is blessed by a demon.
>>27137546Oh yeslets not wait to learn how to change our shapejust teleport right the fuck into her cellWatch her squirm and scream as we raise a finger and bless her
>>27137566Once per day as a full-round action, a succubus may grant a profane gift to a >willing humanoid creature by touching it for 1 full round. >>27136919>>Check our -confidence-You have, in your natural form, more than enough -confidence- to bully Blue about a lack of -confidence-, if you so desire.
>>27137566>not just letting her go and just fucking with her at the absolute worst times known to the world since we are an immortal jackass we can do this even into old age.
>>27137638But the first thing she'd do would be call down the power of her church on us
>>27137635dear TepesI thought blue had huge -confidence-
>>27137635I know it is impossible but I think it is hilarious that it doesn't say they can't profane gift themselves.
>>27137707How to put this with as much innuendo and as little overt statements of bust size as possible...Amelia has Big Confidence that would make a woman half her age proud, and knows how to flaunt it.Blue has a bit of a Domineering temperament, which she hides because it can get in the way.The Half Orc Didn't Doubt herself, confident in her ability to do the right thing.Where as GirlyQuinn is something of an Exemplar, when it comes to certainty.
>>27137862Dear lord.....WellI know what I'm going to vote for next part
>>27137862eye am baka,confidence means tits, right?
>>27138104Yes.Yes it does.
Hmmm, I think one important question is that can we still assume our old form? Because in case we need to deal with some of our old contacts, it might be a tad bit hard to convince them that it really is us, when all they see are a pair of KK-sized tits
>>27138134we do not know how to letbut we willAnd I don't think we will have to worry about them not thinking its usthe wonders of charisma
>>27138118I get why this happened now.You just wanted an excuse to use Red Saber, didn't you?
Hey >Villain QM !x6MuOu/vOw I just want you to to know that you're awesome.Polite sage for off-topic.
>>27137020c-c-c-c-can we still grow a dick?
>>27137408I think if we chose the torture option we could have become a Balor or Incubus
>>27138440We have Change Shape, which means we can become any Small or Medium Humanoid, it has no restrictions on gender, so yeah, we can become a dude again, hell we probably can just grow a cock if we want.It might take some practice, but we can probably pull it off.And our Intimidate score just skyrocketed due to our increased Charisma, which is awesome. And we got 7 points of Natural Armor, so we can toss our Ring of Natural Armor and still gain +5 AC over our old value. And Flight, and a whole fucking plethora of other cool goodies.Honestly once we get over being a chick, which shouldn't take long considering all the perks we got from this and the fact that we can change our form at will, we'll be fucking ecstatic about this.
>>27138777>>2713877Wow we can fuck everything literally -and- figuratively
>>27137158I know that you're probably gone, but I figure I should clear this up.Our Change Shape Ability is not a Spell, nor is it even a Spell Like Ability, it's a Supernatural Ability. This means it can't be Dispelled, it is not subject to Spell Resistance, though that's not relevant, nor does using it provoke Attacks of Opportunity. Only thing that can stop us from using it is an Antimagic Field. We can change to whatever Humanoid form or gender we so choose without having to worry about it going away, unless we stroll into an AMF.
>>27138883OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY
Wow. The people in /qtg/ weren't kidding. This really did go straight to shit.
