First time doing this, but let's see where it goes.The throb between your temples has replaced all conscious thought. Coming and going, it is the rhythm of your world. You don't remember falling, but you must have as the blurry image of a rain-slicked wall seen from below registers in your gradually clearing head. As the cacophony slowly subsides you start noticing more details. Such as your proximity to a heavily trafficked street and the blood trickling from your temple to mix with the rivulets of water running down the grey asphalt. The rain is still falling heavily, soaking your clothes through and through and you blink before unsteadily sitting up tp lean against the house behind you. Well, progress is progress, no matter how small. "I wish the rain would stop". Try to shield yourself while waiting for the nausea to pass. Try to stand up, dizziness be damned. Call for help (Vocally? Search for your cellphone?) Take care of your wound. It didn't seem big but then that needn't mean much. Other.Your outfit must be a total mess by now, but what does it look like? Business suit and pants, dress shoes Functional skirt and blazer Casual wear. Jeans and long-sleeved shirt. Other

Will there be cute girls in this quest?
How does it take you 30 min to write the second post in a quest? Do you really not have anything pre-written?
[X] Taking care of that pesky head wound.[X] Wearing casual clothesIt takes some effort -- a ton of it in fact -- but after a while you manage to tear a long strip of fabric from your shirt to wrap around your head. A smaller piece of cloth you fold a few times in order to apply pressure directly to the injured spot and keep the wound from opening further. Seems those lessons they made you take had some use after all. The dizziness comes and goes but at last you're settled with something even the most merciless first aid instructors would be content with. Meanwhile, the rain has slowed to a drizzle and you feel confident in standing up. Bonus choice! [X] Check inventory. It seems you weren't expecting to be caught in a downpour as there is no umbrella anywhere in sight. You do however recover a rucksack from a from the sidewalk a few meters from where you were sitting. Inside there's several notebooks with sketches(soaked), a battered (and now completely dead) Samsung Galaxy I, a few pencils and a lighter.To your slight irritation you notice that during the whole time, nobody bothered to help the obviously injured person on the wayside, pedestrians instead opting to hurry past while pretending you were thin air.This makes you Angry, people in this city behave like animals to each other Sad, they strike me as automatons sometimes Resigned, it's just the way this city ticksWhere do you want to go? Hospital Home Uni I have friends, maybe I should visit them. Other

>>27387279[X] Resigned, it's just the way this city ticksNo point in getting worked up over something we can't really do anything about.[X] HomeIt's cold, it's raining, and our head hurts. Let's go home and get into something dry.
>>27387203Why are you so impatient?
>>27387279[X] Angry, people in this city behave like animals to each otherJUSTICE.[X] Home> implying we have insurance> implying we bother to associate with people
>>27387453I think because the OP and title imply smiting and we're still being a useless bitch right now.>>27387349This.
[X] Nothing to be done about it[X] My home is my castleNo, you're not a saint but seeing people drift through life unawares has a way of getting under your skin even though you usually manage to ignore it. Still, there's nothing to be done about the human condition especially not in the state you're in now so you resign yourself to slowly walk home unsteadily, pausing from time to time to let the last vestiges of your dizziness wash away with the wind. Overhead it's starting to clear up and by the time you've reached the apartment building at the outskirts of the city it's almost looking as if summer were planning a return. Your quarters greet you with the usual mess of books, notes, and CDs strewn every which way, making you feel right at home. As you flop onto your bed you feel... lighter. As if the air were carrying you somehow. You pay it no mind and put on your favourite Dvorak compilation when all of a sudden, the very air and every surface in the living/bedroom seems to take on a fiery radiance of its own and you smell something like burning hair.  Freak out. Try not to freak out. Fail Observe. Head injuries sure have a way of messing with you.
>>27387714[X] Try not to freak out. FailThings catching on fire is bad, find problem, fix problem.
Are we Urban Moses or something?
>>27387714>lie down>try not to cry>cry a lot
>>27387714> Try not to freak out. Fail
>>27387714[X] Observe. Head injuries sure have a way of messing with you.Guys please, it's all in our head.
>>27387928Except it's affecting our sense of smell as well, that's more than just hallucinating.
>>27387959Strokes do that, actually, and it's not uncommon for people to hallucinate smells. It's generally not single-sense hallucinations.
>>27387976If OP pulls a LEL SO FUNNEH it was all in your head stunt I'm going to be upset.
>>27388031It would be intensely homoerotic.
[X] Try not to freak out. FailOkay, you're just imagining things. This will be over soon and--NOPE NOPE NOPE, that's it, you've had enough. Jumping off the bed - again, there's this odd feeling of weightlessness for a split second - you grab your bedsheets and start beating at your table which now glows a pale yellow. The flames however seem rather unimpressed by your efforts and keep on burning as if you hadn't done anything. On the flipside, they don't seem to be consuming anything either and despite the smell there's not a trace of smoke to be seen anywhere. Turning around with your heart beating madly you suddenly spot a figure in white, flowing robes sitting at the foot end of your bed looking every inch like some kind of whitewashed hare krishna, except more radiant and perfectly clean. The... person (he? she?) looks at you with a faint smile as if saying "are you quite done yet?", then pats the spot beside themselves like an old friend would when reserving you a place at their side.This day has gone from bad to weird pretty quickly.How do you react, player?Sorry for the low-ass speed.
>>27388246>[X] Try not to freak out. Fail
>>27388246Sit next to the person. Obviously we're either insane or this is happening.
So I just started reading. What is going on? Are we shizo?
>>27388246Sit down next to them."Why is my room on fire? I'm having a seriously weird day and would like some answers."
>>27388246Roll with it.
>>27388360>Are we shizo?I think it's worse.
>>27388360I think we're going full Angel of Death mode in a little bit, but I'm not 100% sure yet.Who the fuck knows.
OP is either BargainBrew or Twen.
>>27388544Nope, they both use simpler more straightforward english.

>>27388713No need to be rude I was just asking.
>>27388674How about no.
>>27388612For starters, neither of them use  to denote choices, opting for ">..."Bargain Brew likes dialogue a lot more than OP, and tends to have a lot of shorter paragraphs, not a single large one.Twen tends to be more "text-based video game" in writing style. Above, when checking inventory, Twen would have said something more like:>Inventory: rucksack, notebooks, sketches (soaked), battered Samsung Galaxy I, etc.
>>27388755Aww shit cyberdetective mode engaged full power.
> Go with the flow and sit down with him. Inquire about the weird shit that happenedAll be damned, this won't get any easier by running in circles like a beheaded chicken so best get it over and done with. You sit down a safe distance from the man (you decide it's a man for simplicity's sake) and set out for your first question before he holds up a hand to interrupt you. "Yes, I know what you might want to ask; 'What is happening, Who am I, How did you get in here' and all those other newbie questions". First let me begin by introducing myself: I'm Malak and I'll be your host for this evening. As for what is happening: A lot of things, but primarily your Awakening which is the reason for my being here. He gestures at the surroundings, his speech picking up momentum as he simply overrides any attempt at you getting a word in edgewise."These are just side effects of my being here and will subside once I leave. Now, let's get to the main question, which is 'What am I and what are my duties?', of course". He positively -- and you strongly suspect literally -- beams at the last part.  Let him talk. Interrupt with a question (specify) Interrupt him out of spite, this guy's way too rude OtherDo you think You're hallucinatingYou're experiencing something you simply can't explain You don't care You are the victim of some kind of swindler.
>>27388953> Let him talk.>You're experiencing something you simply can't explainMy patience is waning. Let's actually get this quest moving.
>>27388953[X] Let him talk.[X]You're experiencing something you simply can't explainIf we're hallucinating there's not much we can do about it, and if this is a swindler it's the single most dedicated conman I've ever heard of.
[X] Let him talkWhy were you even hesitating, of course you want him to finish. Raising an eyebrow the being continues."Every government needs those that enforce its laws and regulations, I'm sure you're familiar with that principle? On earth, it is primarily the task of us, the Awakened, to enforce the laws made in heaven and ensure that things don't go even more haywire than they do anyways". He shrugs"Enough of laws and regulations though. Take off your bandage".You comply. You expected as much, so the disappointment of the being's face is rather visible when your reaction to the wound's restored state is apparently much more mellow than he's used to. He'll deal with it.Next he instructs you to hop off the ground, and for the third time you experience the feeling of seemingly being much lighter than you remember. "Good, now focus on keeping that feeling in mind". After a while you manage a slightly shaky but otherwise stable hover above the floor and Malak relaxes for a second to give you a thumbs up."Each Awakened Guardian has a focus or specialization. What do you want yours to be?" He explains each briefely. Banishment of evil (weak against regular humans, short range) Elemental abilities (Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Plague) Protection (physical focus, CQC skills, burning blades etc)How do you feel about your power? It's superpowers, how could I say no? Finally a way to change the world. I don't know yet. They're okay I guess?Would you prefer to Have somebody teach you. Go your own way after basic training is over.
>>27389414BITCH WE SUPERMAN NOW.[X] Elemental abilities. Skill focus: HOLY FIRE.[X] It's superpowers, how could I say no?[X] Go your own way after basic training is over.Which is now. Holy shit get out of my house.
>>27389414>AVATAR STATE AVATAR STATE AVATAR STATE AVATAR STATE AVATAR STATE>I was hoping for some 70s feathered hair>Have somebody teach us, training montage time
>>27389414> Protection (physical focus, CQC skills, burning blades etc)> Go your own way after basic training is over.Musclewizardmode activate. Go our own way. What could possibly go wrong.
>>27389466>What could possibly go wrong.God gets mad at us and burns us to ashes...
OP, what of regular angels are they around?
>>27389414> Elemental abilities> They're okay I guess?> Have somebody teach you.
>>27389414ElementalIt's super powers(!)Get taught
>>27389414>[x] Elemental abilities (Holy fire)>[x] It's superpowers, how could I say no?>[x] Have somebody teach you.
>>27389538Malak looks at you quizzically, as if he didn't expect that kind of question. "When Adam and Eve agreed to take the Snake's deal they transferred stewardship of humanity and the planet to it and thereby removed some of god's influence upon this part of creation. It's a bit complicated but basically Angels only get involved when a believer prays for their intervention or Hell oversteps its boundaries. Otherwise Heaven will use regular humans and people like us to keep the peace". He seems awfully pleased with his explanation.>>27389598>>27389696>>27389544>>27389453>>27389437((Elemental seems to have won. Writing. Meanwhile figure out which element you want or all of them. The latter option is kinda tricky but completely viable.))
>>27389737Well, if we were to choose plague, do we strictly deal in diseases or can we also get a few things thematically related, such as swarms of locusts or bees?
>>27389737Avatar state, bro. All the fuckin' elements.
>>27389737Fire won already, but i suggest two other specializationsPlague and Earth.
>>27389773((Disease, locusts, calamity such as earthquakes although it's less "look at spot X and make the ground explode" and more "speak certain words and a certain area will be hit by an earthquake", snakes, mosquitoes etc. Big drawback: It's hella unspecific and not at all viable for direct combat in 9 out of 10 cases).>>27389786>>27389777((Unless it's flipped over to Avatar state or another option within the next three minutes we're doing fire in that case. Side note, if you level your ability high enough without dying you can become its embodiment and basically its ruler on earth.)).
Plague sounds pretty fuckin' cool to me.
>>27389933It sounds like pointless dickery.
>>27389923fuck fire Plague wins, better to be master of one then jack of all trades.
>>27389923Can we choose, say fire as our primary element and plague as secondary?Plague should actually be a secondary to all element user so that they can all go "old testament" on their enemy asses.
>>27389969It's less about meting out proper punishment and more about LOL LET'S KILL STUFF.>>27389975You never go Full Old Testament bro.Ever.
Children, please, you can literally have everything you want. Just say "you want it all," and lo, we have it all.We'll have ourselves a grand training montage, and we'll proceed to take our place as prince of the universe. What's with all the fighting?
>>27390008I'm still not understanding your logic. How is BURN EVERYTHING less about LOL LETS KILL STUFF then careful and strategic use of powers that can't be applied directly?If anything, plague would encourage more precise application of force than fire would.
>>27389737Fire and wind.We are a living god damned thunder storm.
>>27390008Too bad its kinda useless in direct combat. Which is too bad because I would have like to kill opponent by conjuring giant swarms of locust.Pretty much like http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=uYnlzpSSevM#t=8
>>27390054...but you can have water and earth and heart and everything else too.
>>27390063Couldn't become a necromancer in a way with plague?
>>27390086Raising the dead as zombies be reserved for evil peeps and Jesus.
>>27390086I don't think necromancy is a viable career path when we're employed by Raziel to smite down the sinners.
Heh. You got to the angel quest idea before I did.Well, I suppose I snooze, and I lose.
>>27390078You're right.We need water too if we want to be a thunder angel.
>>27390078>>27390047We know being greedy and picking everything limits us/gimps us more than just picking one or two elements.>>27390103>>27390098Thats why i said a form nothing to do with close to it.
>>27390118Share your ideas, it might help the op and maybe you can still make yourself one except with demons.
>>27390137Don't be a little bitch, Anon. What're you afraid of?
>>27389975((Possible, just not very powerful since choosing from two different schools slows down leveling of the abilities chosen. Not forbidden IC or OOC by any stretch of imagination, just not recommended)).>>27390086Malak grunts, his expression pained "Let's just say the heavens don't like it when we mess in their business, even -- or perhaps especially -- when it's not true resurrection. It's kind of a similar deal as with Witchcraft and miracles. It's all about who you draw power from and under whose authority you operate, see"?>>27390063>Which is too bad because I would have like to kill opponent by conjuring giant swarms of locust.((Can be done if you're good enough AND have somebody watching your front while you call it down. You just have to enjoy being reduced to support Caster in a direct confrontation))>>27390148>>27390118((Yes, I'd like to hear them)).
>>27390148Maybe later. I gotta dash now.
>>27389923Maybe we should figure out what we are up against. Banishment of evil is clear. Doesn't work on corrupt humans. The elements are one thing. Angelic super soldier another. Is there nothing stopping us from having a major in elements and a minor in cqc and evil banishment.
>>27390183I like to have a specialized MC.
>>27390086Unless you are talking about litteral necromancy, which is talking with the dead, no. Now, plague is probably the most interesting option, but its more or less useless if we can't defend ourselves with it. I mean, who wins between the villain with a weather controlling machine and the hero with a gun?Now, if there was some way to directly fight with plague, such as swarms of bees, turning people into statues of salt, transmuting blood to wine or being avenged sevenfold for each blow dealt to us, it could be an interesting option.
>>27390227>Is there nothing stopping us from having a major in elements and a minor in cqc and evil banishment.The very post you quoted says that "No, nothing is stopping you, you'll just have to pay the price for it".
>>27390232>my needs, desires, and opinions matter more than anyone else's.That's cool, anon. I like the main character not to be a fuckin' pussy in the face of greatness.
>>27390250>>27390227Wait sorry.Please see >>27390215We can be a maverick master of everything it's just a fucking stupid thing to attempt.
>>27390250What kind of price. Recharging my silver cross at a church when I run out of power?
>>27390261Where the fuck did you get that shit from all i have been making suggestions and civil conversations.I can easily get outvoted for fire or any other element, but even the QM said it would slow our progress down.
>>27390295More like trying to learn to paint with your feet while you box with your hands.
>>27390295Sucking just a little bit more than necessary. Or a lot more depending on how patient Thorin is.
>>27390303>slow the progress downRight, and? Why does that bother you?
>>27390215So, you are implying we won't be fighting alone.Should we choose support caster route, will we have easy access to some form of guardian? Maybe another angel or a demon forced into servitude to redeem itself.
>>27390308Learning to cook with my hands while I kick with my feet? I have become Sanji. oh no Succubi everywhere!
>>27390326it doesn't what bothers me is getting our shit stomped in when we could have been trying to get proficient in an element first than trying to branch out.
>>27390342Something like that, I imagine. So where were we on voting for Avatar State? It's time to embrace your inner force of nature, anons.
>>27390370I think we should hold an official vote. Right now its a mess.
>>27390370Having all of them just seems like a really easy way to get gimped.
>>27390362...hold onjust a secondyou're worried about losing, in a quest? What the fuck man? That's some weird ass shit. It's about a story, not winning. Goddamn.Why would "getting our shit stomped in," bother you like that?
>>27390378We'll wait for Op to post then respond to.
>>27390381I would refer you to >>27390388 . Why does being "gimpy," or "good," matter? Why not be cool, with unlimited potential?
>>27390408Because there are enemies. I would like the quest to continue for a while, not end the first time we get in a fight and get killed.
>>27390370I suggest trying to be proficient in one and then have the option of the other elements op up to us later.(it would be just like the show.)>>27390388Not losing exactly, but dying and the consequences that follow a loss.>>27390408I think its better to do it step by step instead of having everything unlocked.
>>27390402Fuck this prime element shit, I say we crush demons with the forces of gravity.
>>27390404>Do you want to be a jack of all traids or have a main power. Do you want a minor.> Fire element main, CQC minor
>>27390440*open up for us.
ALRIGHT, LET'S JUST CALL AN OFFICIAL VOTE RIGHT NOWWhat element are we going for?I vote plague.
>>27390451Does fire and CQC really work together, i though earth and CQC harmonize more.
>>27390428>>27390440Embrace greatness, anon, we have the opportunity to train. I'm sure our new employment comes with some sweet extended life benefits.We have plenty of time to fuck around in heaven or pensacola or wherever Divine Bootcamp is before we're tossed into the world.Stop letting your fear of now cloud the potential of tomorrow.
>>27390471We should just get op to explain the other elements since all we really know about is plague.
>>27390483So do you agree with my idea of have 1 element unlocked and then have the others unlocked by buying/doing something specific to unlock the others since that why we both are happy.
>>27390477I can dig it. Tremor sense would help tactical awareness. Could be a problem with flying enemies.
>>27390508No, dude, all I did was call you a bitch in a more polite, drawn out fashion. I think that's a pussy shit idea and we should start with the box checked "everything."We're going to get easy, shit jobs until we make rank of Heaven Detective.
>>27390487I believe the other elements are pretty damn self explanatory.>>27390508Something like that. We can start at level 0 in each ability and then distribute points. Events and leveling specific ability unlock specializations.
>>27390517Just throw boulders at them or maybe effect gravity if its part of earths powers.I loved that little blind girl
Alright, it's decision time folks.1) Fire2) Earth3) Wind4) Water5) Avatar6) Banishment7) Protection8) Multiclass (Specify).We don't operate on Shadow Quest rules, but you MUST directly reply to this post in order to be counted.>>27390334>will we have easy access to some form of guardian?> So, you are implying we won't be fighting alone.((Well, you gotta convince them to stay around although that shouldn't be too much of a problem, at least at first. God and True Angels are your boss, below that level parties kind of form and dissolve based on seniority, power and charisma))>>27390487Water: Ice, Ocean, Tides, Water life, summon floods.Wind: Weather, High-speed flight, general airbender shenanigans, Tornado summoning.Earth: Communicate with fauna and flora alike, control plants, use animal spies, cause localized explosions.Fire: Purging Fire, Fireballs, Control over heat and cold, Orbital Bombardment.
>>27390542True, but we do need QM to say his opinion on the matter since all we have been arguing about is not the elements anymore but on how many we should have.
>>27390569Plague. Gotta love that background caster who rains down precision death from the high tower.
>>273905698.(earth, and protection.)
>>27390569>8) Multiclass> Element (fire or earth)> CQC
>>27390569Plague.We can keep a guardian handy to deal with direct threats. In most RPG the support wizard is the one with real power anyway.

>>27390569I like Toph from avatarSo 7 and 2 for me.
>>27390549((Actually yes, it's part of the portfolio although you can get telekinesis as a non-specific skill later on. It's more of a support than a combat skill though.))>>27390576((As stated you may have as many as you want as long as you pay the price)).
>>27390637>as long as you pay the priceTotally legit folks. Yup.
>>27390569>>27390630Changing to earth because gravity.
Did this quest suddenly get discovered or are the samefags attacking?
>>27390661Could be both.
>>273905696)What happened to paladin love, guys?
I'm going to make a suggestion/compromise.The skew is basically full elemental, dabble in protection to utilize those fists of fury. Here's the proposal: Change the word "elemental," to "Avatar," and make the initial choice we're deciding on right now be "You're the Avatar, pick your native element." I think that more or less solves a lot of the problems. We can train (or neglect) the others at our leisure, while not removing any options.Y'all dig?
>>27390637Eh when ever i think of telekinesis i think of the force so i usually view it as offensive.
>>27390661Samefag Strikes Back, I think, but it could be both.
>>27390679Avatar has got some advanced CQC. I approve.
>>27390679That has already been suggested and that is why avatar is up there.>>27390661Probably both since we have been keeping this on the front page with our arguing.
>>27390691>>27390676>>27390661Shit's happening and the updates in which shit was not happening are short enough to read through rather quickly.
>>27390661Doesnt look like either, since non of the options has exceeded 3 votes.
>>273905696 & 7, since 7 basically negates 6 weakness.
OP, make an executive decision and get on with it. We've been on chargen for 4 hours already. No choice is going to make everybody perfectly happy, so there's no point in waiting around to try.
>>27390735>OP, make an executive decision and get on with it. We've been on chargen for 4 hours already.It's funny cause this was one of the very few chargen I enjoyed.

>>27391055So we ended up being a mage huh, then i suggest going for protection as soon as possible then.
>>27391015>Also some one changed their vote so Earth& protection won out.((Would love to count that since I'm a sucker for plant talking but the rules stated any vote has to quote the post in which the vote is called directly which doesn't seem to have happened. Even if not, I was asked to put my foot down and I actually agree. Hope you're not too disappointed anon.))>>27391082((I'll give the opportunity, yes.))
>>27391124Its all good, you had to put your foot down eventually.
>>27391124No, spineless QM are the worst.
>>27391124Well we can push it to the limit and become a Prototype, Zerg, Tyrannid. Maybe we can infect someone with a non communicable retro-viri that awakens mind or body powers. I can work with this.
>>27391218/tg/ just can't be happy with being a walking portent of doom.
>>27391218>Well we can push it to the limit and become a Prototype, Zerg, Tyrannid. Maybe we can infect someone with a non communicable retro-viri that awakens mind or body powers. I can work with this.What the fuck are you smoking?
>>27391238We are going old testament on people
>>27391250I hope plague also include curses
>>27391245Just having a mental field day. Plague would be over virus(genetic engineering), parasites(symbiotic organisms and special purpose) or bugs(anaphylactic shock), spiders(I'm summoning spiders, all of them), and rats(little plague bearers). I can imagine with our powers the bad guys will try hard to recruit us
>>27391314>Summon plague of rabid bearsYep.
>>27391347That's just evil
>>27391386God sent me.Don't panic, I know what I'm doing.
>>27391314Your version of plague would meld well with Earth
>>27391416That was accidental.
>>27391478It doesn't hurts its chances once we get a vote on a secondary power, though i personally would choose CQC since we are basically a mage now.
>>27391520CQC is a bad idea. Our abilities require long casting times, so some kind of barrier would be best, to keep us -out- of the fray as long as possible.
[X] PlagueYour fellow - strange how you've so quickly come to think in those terms - Awakened seems uncharacteristically ponderous for once, eying you sideways before slapping you on the back in an exaggerated display of camaraderie."Plague school, interesting choice. Most of those that pick it have had some sort of calamity happen in their lives and studying ways to call them a method with which they cope. You however seem to have lived a fairly uneventful life by all reports. You must be either gutsy or coold~", he draws out "cold" and somehow adds a little twirl to it " to pick that path. Either way, I'll show you the basics".The next hours are spent speaking certain foreign-sounding syllables hundreds or even thousands of times, Malak sometimes snapping at you for getting a single vocal wrong. While you catch your breath he expands a bit on your powers and how to use them."The power of the Him are more infinite than the Universe. Your body, however, is not. What this means is that you'll have a limited amount of Pleroma accessible within a certain time-frame with you will have to make good use off before you run out. True Miracles you ask for are of course done directly by Him and Free of Charge if you will, but don't tempt the Creator, it never ends well".He corrects your posture and the old game begins anew. You feel as if you're slowly getting the hang of it. As night falls, you practice in the light of his fires, their glow at once soft and strong enough for him to make out every single mistake.> Skill sheet partially unlocked!!Main school: Calamity.School Focus & Paragon skills: N/aSecondary school: N/aPleroma charges: 12"If you're in a pinch you may perform an Overdraw which taps extra Pleroma, but the side effects won't be pretty."((10 d20 to see how you fared during your first tutoring session.

> glorious success, you now know how to perform Vermin Plague, Summon Bees, Inflict Disease(I) and Hailstorm(I).[X] Go for a drinkAll things considered you really could do with a stiff drink right now. At your invitation the angel agrees enthusiastically and you make your way towards one of your favourite clubs before your partner redirects you wordlessly one street away from your destination. The establishment you end up entering bears more resemblance to a Hobbit's house than a bar, an impression that is only reinforced once you spot the pudgy barkeeper. At your inquiry Malak just chuckles, picking a spot somewhere in a booth far away from the commotion. What do you order for yourself, player?

>>27393501In a dirty glass!
>>27393094And I'm back.Sage for not wanting to draw out too much attention.But here was the idea I was ruminating on for my angel quest.First:Players would be an actual angel. Pretty far from the source material, but a supernatural and holy entity. You are an emanation of His divine power, a being manifested with a purpose and given freedom. To judge. Mankind has a spiritual sickness, and He that is on high would know whether or not His intervention was needed. Hell's agents roam the Earth freely, perverting and manipulating the poor souls of Earth.The initial introduction would have them go forth and investigate a city of corruption, fallen under the sway of a succubus's cult. This would serve three purposes- first, to introduce the antagonists, second, to gauge the intent of the players, and third, to provide a quick and easy out for me if the players don't understand the theme and decide to fall like a moron for the succubus ("Your husk makes for a fine conversation piece in her resplendent throne room." Or something else suitably dire).After the player's interactions with the mortal realm, there'd be a rough three paths I had envisioned:1) Redeemer. Go forth and save what mortal souls you can. Save people, talk to angels to convince them to buy time, bring hope to the hopeless, all the good things. Kind of a guardian angel kind of game.2) Avenger. Go forth, hunt down the wicked, and bring them your divine wrath. Making examples of sinners, smiting those that would defy God, following fallen angels in to Hell to drag them out screaming, that kind of thing. Combat batman style.3) Scourge. Wipe the slate clean. Seek out a way to speed the end of the world, before His mercy acts up again and he spares the lowly worms that continue turn apostate despite every kindness. Mortals and demons unite against you. BBEG kind of game.Those were the inklings I had. Your idea is better.I wish I could have written "Wayward" for the last.
>>27394630Oh wait I recall your pitch from a few weeks back. Run it, I don't think we'd clash.
>>27395614Well, okay. I'll take that as a license.Shame I've got so much else in my backlog of quests.
