You are Charles Paul Underwood, student, computer wizard and, recently, amateur demon summoner.Having received the Demon Summoning Program in an email from the mysterious Steven, you've found yourself dragged into struggle you can't even begin to comprehend.Last thread, you activated your demon summoning program(s), inadvertently drawing the attention of a number of demons. Your childhood friend, Madeline, paid dearly for your summoning ritual, as the demon Garm viciously savaged her and crippled her right leg. In an attempt to heal her, you've decided to meet with a Goddess that has apparently taken up residence in the Brooklyn Bridge Park, who Garm claims possesses sufficient power to repair Madeline's damaged limb.

It takes you a short while to get to your car, but with Pixie's help, you finally manage to lower her into the back seat.Madeline winces as she tries to manoeuvre her ruined leg into a more comfortable position, but says nothing, giving you an exasperated look when she sees your concerned expression. "I'm not going to get any better from you faffing about, Charley. Don't worry about me, and just start driving."With a nod, you climb into the front seat, Pixie perched on your shoulder. The car starts with no problems, and you pull out of the communal parking lot shared by the local flats.>Go straight to park?>Go somewhere else first?>Other?>It's currently 11 AM.
Rolled 23>>27846612>>Go somewhere else first?Go to the pharmacy to grab some painkiller
>>27846541Yeah, started the last thread without my trip, so I figured I'd best just restart.>>27846567If you're sure, anon...
>>27846612>>Go straight to park?Unless anyone else has a better idea.
>>27846630This, try to grab any food or supplies just in case
>>27846649Now I'm just thinking about what type of demon could jump us at the shop.
Rolled 30>>27846649Speaking of food, we should buy some steaks for our furry friend.
>>27846686Pretty sure he would prefer something a little more... living.
Rolled 19>>27846681>Go to bathroom at mall>This appears
>Go to the pharmacy+suppliesWhile you're tempted to rush to the park, you can't help but feel that rushing this won't help anything. Garm nearly killed you. If there's anything as dangerous between you and the Goddess as him, you want to be prepared."Charley, what are doing?" Madeline groans from the backseat, as you pull to a stop outside the local supermarket. "This isn't Brooklyn Park.""I'm just picking up some painkillers. Antibiotics. That kind of stuff. I'll only be a moment.""I'm fine, Charles," Madeline says, sitting up slightly. "Let's just-""Would you be fine if I was to poke your leg, right this instant?""You wouldn't dare.""Try me."There's a brief stand-off, and then Madeline sinks back into her seat, pouting. "Fine then. Buy me pain-relieving medicine. See if I care."You sigh, and get out of the car.It doesn't take long to reach the pharmacy, and you quickly look at things that might be useful.>Painkillers (Grants + 10 Temporary HP!): 5$>Antibiotics (Removes Poison and Sickness.

>>27846849>>27846832You're 22. Madeline is 21. She's somewhat undeveloped overall though, and has a major babyface. You've known each other since before starting school.>Is there a gun shop?>In AmericaWhere do you think you are?
>>27846496don't forget to put a link to the thread on twitter next time (or now)
>>27846884We're in New York, actually.
Rolled 27>>27846884Well, QM mentionned Brooklyn park, so I doubt that we are in Japan.>>27846892Lets go to the gun shop/weapon shop afterward.A gun or a combat knife would be useful.
>>27846892We should be able to buy a glock or /k/ forbid, a hipoint with our money, along with some mags and ammo. If we're in Jew York, expect much trouble procuring a firearm so acquiring it illegally would be more efficient when shtf
>>27846911>>27846918I really should have guessed that from the Brooklyn Bridge Park thing. All the moonspeak at the top confused me.
>>27846801I think we should get 10 of everything.
>>27846849>>27846863>>27846885So to try and average a bit, how about 10x Painkillers, 5x Antibiotics, 15x Chunka Chocolate and 3 Slakah Thirsts?And your current stats:CharlesHP: 55MP: 50Abilities:Attack, Guard, Dodge, Negotiate, Flee, MagicMagic:War CryWeapon: Golf ClubArmour: Antique Trenchcoat (Resistances:?

>>27846892I'm sure she insists that she'll hit her growth spurt soon.Also any boys that tried to ask her out probably were accused of dating a minor
Rolled 65>>27846988That list works for me.Hey, could we fuse a demon and an item in our inventory? Namely, our coat?
>>27846988sounds fine >>27847026probably not yet
>>27847026I'd honestly rather we didn't fuse Garm for a while, at least not until we've got some other heavy hitters. If I'm remembering correctly, Garm can do almost double our physical damage.
Rolled 55>>27847137I didn't want to fuse him immediatly.I just wanted to know if the possibility existed because...I suspect there is something odd with our coat.
>>27847026You purchase what you want, drawing an odd look from the cashier about the sheer quantity of items you're buying. You murmur something about a camping trip and he thankfully doesn't ask anything more.>Acquired 10 Painkillers>Acquired 5 Antibiotics>Acquired 15 Chunka Chocolate>Acquired 3 Slakah ThirstsFunds Remaining: 295$As he's packing your bags, you poke at your smartphone, accessing the Cathedral of Shadows app. Since demons can be fused with humans, at least according to Garm, you've been curious at whether they can be fused with anything else. There, in the very corner of the options menu, you see a button labelled 'ALTERNATIVE'. You press it.*ERROR**THIS FIRMWARE DOES NOT SUPPORT NON-ORGANIC FUSION**PLEASE INSTALL 'DEMONICA APPLICATION*Well, shit. If you had your PC on you, you could probably look a bit more into that.>Go to gun store?>Go home and check out phone?>Go to park?>Other?

>>27847202>Go to park.
>>27847202>This urge between being torn to buy a starting weapon now, or wait till we can just loot oneThere's demons running around, right? Cops are going to die, right?
>>27847202let's go back to the car first, check on madeline and give her some painkiller if everything is fine, go to the gun store and buy two
>>27847246If I learned anything from devil survivor, it's that eventually you will fight evil cops with demons of their own.
>>27847202>>Go to park?Do we have a tire iron or something in the boot? Might be better than a golf club.
>>27847247Not to shit on your parade or anything, but you're not gonna get two with 295 bucks.I wsa lucky to find a Llama at my local store that was consignment for 250. he would've taken 200 cash, but that was a special thing.tl;dr: Gunaboos don't get your hopes up, because with 295 and no time, you're not gonna get anything. There's going to be a waiting period at a FFL, and you don't really want to be buying a gun from a crim, do you?
>>27847202>Go to park?let's not wander around to long
>>27847261And if I learned anything from Devil Survivor 2, it's that we need to fuse up some Titanias with Reflect Phys as soon as possible.
>>27847307OR we can just bait robbers with our money, throw the dog at them and loot
>>27847202For a moment you consider checking out the gun store, but then you dismiss the idea. You've fired a gun maybe twice in your life. It probably wouldn't be a smart idea to trust your life to one now, especially when your trusty gold club has proven a fine weapon thus far. You make your way back to the car, and hand Madeline one of the painkillers. Despite her earlier dismissal of the need, she quickly gulps it down with some water.>Lost one Painkiller!"Thanks, Charley," she smiles at you briefly, then pokes you right in your concerned expression with her intact foot. "Now can we get on the road? It'd be nice to talk to this goddess before it's night."With a grunt of acknowledgement, you start the car up.ROLL 1D100
Rolled 80>>27847341She's taking being maimed surprisingly well.When do we get the PTSD?
Hey, I just thought of something: What if this 'Goddess' is the Healing Fountain goddess from Nocturne? We might need some Macca.
Rolled 78>>27847436Meta knowledge will likely be punished in this quest, mate. Let's try to avoid that.
>>27847454Sorry, wasn't trying to be meta.
>>27847354>>27847355>>27847369>mfw you passed a DC of 70/tg/ dice, what are you doing?It's a smooth ride to Brooklyn Bridge Park, but you can't help but notice that the roads are curiously empty for a Saturday morning in New York. Normally, you'd expect the traffic to practically be heaving, but instead there's far fewer cars than you'd expected. More than that, there aren't too many pedestrians on the pavement either. It's be easy to dismiss all that out of hand, but you can't help but feel that there's some kind of connection to the recent events in your life going on.It's early afternoon when you reach the park, and you quickly find yourself with another issue. It's a big place, and you have no idea what you're looking for.>How do you search?
>>27847494Call out Garm, he's got a sharp nose and he's already been here. He'll have an easier time than we will.

>>27847494Summon up Garm. He's a dog, right? Maybe he can sniff it out.
Rolled 3>>27847494Well, healing is often associated with water, ponds and fountains, so lets look for a fountain or a pond.
Rolled 24>>27847494ask pixie if she know where to go
>>27847494>>27847517>>27847526Seconding these. Keep eyes and ears open for trouble.Also, don't worry. Rolls like that don't last long. We'll start crit-fail trains before long.
>>27847517This but also have Pixie fly up to get a birds eye view
>>27847552Good idea, this place is suspiciously quiet, aerial surveillance is always good to keep from getting surprised.
You tap on your smartphone and in a flash of light, Garm appears before you."YOU NEED GARM, MASTER?"You nod. "This is place you met the Goddess, right?"Garm looks around and then sniffs the air. "YES. THIS PLACE. WANT ME LEAD TO GODDESS?"You nod again. "Yeah, just give me a second."As Garm patiently waits for you, you move over to Madeline, who alternating between glaring knives at Garm and flinching whenever he looks in her direction. It looks like she hasn't quite recovered from her attack, regardless of the front she's putting on.But there's more important things to consider right now. Like how you're going to move her about.>Princess carry?>Piggy-back?>Supporting her while she limps?>Suggest she stay at the car for now?>Other?
>>27847704Truly this is the most important question of the entire quest thus far.
Rolled 10>>27847704>>Piggy-backIts probably more efficient.
>>27847704pat her shoulder and say something like "don't worry, he was a wild mutt but now he's my bitch" and make her ride him
>>27847704>Supporting her while she limps?She's our bro, she needs a hand but doesn't need to be carried.Or have her ride Garm.Also, have Fairy do aerial recon, you never know who might be hiding around here.
>>27847704>Princess carry?How is this even a question?
>>27847704>Piggy-back?Or suggest on how she wants to be carried
>>27847704Princess Carry, of course.
Rolled 85>Princess carry?Guys, SMT means one thing only...TELEPORTERS.Also, go to four chan on our phone and warm people about demons. It might sound stupid but there got to be a thread or two about this shit somewhere. Go to /g/ about the program. But that later on.
>>27847704Keep garm and pixie ready to battle, we can help her walk or carry her if the need arises and she's not to stubborn about it.Also, just got to the thread>Demonica appI love you storyteller.
>>27847704What is the most comfortable way to carry someone who recently had their leg mostly chewed off and reattached?

>>27846496Military Brat wasnt chosen? Son of a bitch.
>>278478271, and you forgot your trip.
>>27847827Get her to ride Garm
>>27847827Piggy back, that way we can still run if needed, or drop her to defend the both of us easily enough.
>>27847827Actually, in light of remembering Pixie is with us... I'm (>>27847754) changing my vote to Piggy Back or Support While Limping. While Maddie is the broest of childhood friends, let's not get Pixie upset.
>>27847827>Princess CarryIn case people haven't noticed, Garm has foot-long spikes on his collar, which makes it kind of hard to safely ride him.
>>27847853It was between layabout and computer wizard really. Which you might regret until you level up a bit.
>>27847874Eh, late game awesomeness beats early game power.
Piggy back has it then.Writing.
Rolled 8>>27847853Computer whiz is too good.Human warfare did jackshit in any SMT due to demons insane feats. Indian demons riding lightning moving at actually lightning speed.We get a good body and know how to shoot but it all shit compare to demon summoning shenanigans we can do.Maybe we can start creating teleporters, and other shit like demonica armor.
>>278478272if we go with 1 Pixie will mad at us
>>27847874Yeah, sucks. One trend I noticed is that /tg/ is very adverse to anything military. I'm surprised male was chosen, though.h
>>27847901>Maybe we can start creating teleporters, and other shit like demonica armor.Or we could hack into the demon summoning app to edit the stored demons.
>>27847908There were three votes for male right off the bat. Given that this was a new, unannounced quest, I was going to give it to whoever got two votes first, so it was something of a surprise.But SMT typically has male protags. Maybe that won it.
>>27847958WHAT DID YOU DO, CHARLES, WHAT DID YOU DO!?
>>27847958Thats the best case scenario. Worst case would be summoning Helel to this world before we have the power to control it.
>>27847908 that's because there was no futa option
You back over to Madeline, offering her your back. It's a bit of a scramble, and you hear a pained hiss escape her mouth more than once, but she's eventually in a relatively secure position on your back, head resting on your left shoulder. Pixie plops down on your right, an annoyed look on her face. You twist your head slightly. "I'm sorry to ask this Pixie, but could you scout the air for me? I don't know what's in this park, but I'd prefer not for it to get the jump on us."She pouts at you. "What, so /Madeline/ get's to be carried, and I have to fly around?""You're the only one I can rely on for this, Pixie," You reply, a note of pleading in your voice. She holds her pout for a moment longer, then smirks mischievously. "Oh, alright. But once this is all over, you're going to owe me!"With that, she takes off into the air, leaving you to trudge along after Garm.After a few minutes walk, you begin to pick up on a sniffing sound that is entirely distinct from Garm's. It take you a moment to recognise it's source. You turn your head to glance at Madeline. "Are you /smelling/ me?""You stink.""Then stop sniffing.""Didn't say I didn't like it.""You're a freak.""A freak who'll bite you.""You and Garm would probably get along then.""Yeah, I can just see it. We'd have so much to talk about. 'ME LOVE MASTER'S SMELL', 'Me too!', 'WE BEST FRIENDS NOW', 'Yay!', 'HOW ABOUT WE FORGET TIME I RIPPED OFF YOUR LEG', 'Yeah, why not? That wasn't traumatic at all!'" She pauses. "And so on."You hesitate, not entirely sure what to say to that. "That... was a pretty good impression of Garm.""Thanks."It's at that very moment that Pixie descends, blessedly breaking the awkward silence forming between you and Madeline. "Hey, Charles! There's some weird people in red ahead. Garm's heading straight for them!">Actions?
>>27848149>>Actions?STOP GARM!We shouldn't fuck with those people in red.

Rolled 99>>27848149>>Scent talk, boxers from earlier.Damn girl, we need to find a neko to fuse her with asap.That said, call garm back, let's approach these guys slowly and cautiously. Did we ever officially claim pixie?
>>27848149Have Garm stop, don't approach them straight on, take a different path, preferably one that will get us sight of them while remaining hidden.
>>27848149Have Garm stop, and keep a cautious eye on them.Pixie! See if you and sneak up on them and see if they're saying anything.It's been too easy thus far, and too quiet. We shouldn't just walk right up to them.
>>27848228Pixie was automatically registered into your compendium when she joined you. Consider her registration to be updated everytime she levels up.
>>27848149Girl sniffs our boxers, then admits to sniffing us, and loving the smell.Why are we just childhood friends and not more with her, after all we're both adults even. Why are protags always dense to this sorta thing.
>>27848149Make a joke about how its a good thing she didn't fuse with Garm considering a dog's superior sense of smell considering how much she sniffs us. Otherwise, ask Garm if they were there last time and if we're near the goddess- if not, be careful and prepared for trouble
>>27848276Good to know, but I'm still worried, we ran the DSP on our phone, comp, and 3ds all at once.We've only found two demons so far...
>>27848228... no... no we didn't claim pixieAlso return garmWe don't want to lose control of the situationAlso why didn't we spend $20 on a good bat? Or even some tools like a wrecking bar for a weapon. Maybe nails for the bat?Most anything is better than a golf club.
>>27848276See>>27848330Pixie is indeed ours. Heck, he even gave us the legit option of fusing her at the start of this thread.
>>27848330>Most anything is better than a golf club.If it was good enough for Yu, it's good enough for us.
>>27848281'cuz after 20 years of friendship "romance," isn't really a thing unless something weird happens.Like being eaten by a demon-doge.
You tap on your smartphone, and Garm appears next to you."PROBLEM?""There were a bunch of people ahead of you. Do you know who they are?"Garm growls thoughtfully. "PEOPLE? IN RED?"You nod."THEN KNOW THEM. SAW THEM WHEN SAW GODDESS. LOOKED STRONG. DIDN'T TRY TO EAT.""Is that all you know?"Garm sniff the air. "NEW SCENTS. DIDN'T NOTICE. MORE OF THEM THAN BEFORE. THAT ALL.""And there's something weird going on in the air," Pixie says, floating down next to you. "There's some kind of aura in the park. It's not really very comfortable. It doesn't feel /natural/ either.">Send Pixie to scout on people in red>Try an sneak up on them yourself>Send Garm>Other?

>>27848548We got time
>>27848562>>27848591Guns are no better than any other kind of weapon in SMT games though, so there's no purpose to gimping ourself trying to force guns onto a protagonist who has no skill with them when we could be spending the time fucking with the demon summoning program to hack our way to victory.Beyond "muh /k/" of course.

>>27848562Screw that. We can just throw streams of demons at people instead.

You come to a halt, staring at the sight before you.In a small clearing, a makeshift fort has been erected, palisades surrounding a group of small tents that in turn border what appears to be a huge marquee made of animal fur. Men and women dressed in bright red walk around the camp animatedly. More worryingly, you see a number of obviously inhuman figures, which seem to either ignore the humans, or follow obediently behind them. It looks like you aren't the only one with demonic allies."GODDESS IN THERE," Garm whispers from next to you. "BIG TENT."It's open ground between you and the camp. You won't be able to sneak in.>Reveal yourself to the people in red>Attack camp>NOPE letsgetoutofhere.jpg>Other?

"Alright, I'm going to and talk to them," you announce, standing up. "What?" Madeline hisses into your ear. "These nutjobs built a fort in the middle of New York! These are obviously not shining paragons of sanity!""They're also camped around the Goddess we need to talk to to heal you," you point out. "I'm not seeing a huge amount of choice here.""Look, I can wait, ok? There's no need for you to-""Can't hear you!"With that, you step out onto the grass and begin walking towards the camp, holding your arms in the air unthreateningly. Garm and Pixie move by your side, trying to look as unthreatening as possible. Very easy for Pixie, not so much for the demonic hound.You're no more than a third of the way to the camp when a group of the red-clothed cultists gather, and move out to meet you. As they near, it becomes obvious who the leader is. A huge man, easily more than six foot tall and built like a brick shithouse, steps out of the group. Behind him stands a large and bizzare looking creature that resembles a cross between an ape, a tiger and a hound. Despite it's odd appearance, there's a certain gleam in it's eyes which belies a frightening intelligence. Together, they make for an imposing sight."Halt!" the man roars, "Who are you, that approaches the Temple of Parvati, consort of Shiva?"
>>27849267Shiva... is kind of a big deal in SMT, isn't he?
Rolled 30>>27849267I'm here to ask the goddess in the tent to heal my friend.
>>27849267Ham it up a little. "I am Charles of New York! I have gone on a long and arduous journey by car to speak with the Goddess on the Bridge!"Then talk normally. "I just became a demon summoner, and my friend was attacked shortly after. Her leg won't heal unless I can get her help."
>>27849267>Response?Make it good.
>>27849345We should probably phrase that a little more respectfully. These people seem like they take this goddess shit seriously.
>>27849330Typically one of the strongest demons available. In several games, almost retardedly strong.
>>27849360This, but the second part needs better phrasing. Maybe a bit of pleading.
Rolled 87>>27849267>"Halt!" the man roars, "Who are you, that approaches the Temple of Parvati, consort of Shiva?"IT IS I! CHARLES PAUL UNDERWOOD, SUMMONER OF DEMONS!

>>27849360Use the word "petition" goddesses love lowly mortals respectfully petitioning them.
>>27849267"Shiva? I'm Polish, not Pakistani." Then:>>27849360Something like that. Say we need to get our friend first aid.
Shut up, Garm.
>>27849374We don't wish to cause any trouble, however my friend has been grievously harmed and we've heard that there was a goddess here capable of great healing.All we ask is for an audience.
>>27849468>"Shiva? I'm Polish, not Pakistani." I laughed.
>>27849468No, no, no."Shiva? I'm Polish, not Muslim"
"I am Charles of New York! I have come on a long and arduous journey to find the Goddess of the Bridge," You meet the man's eyes. "My friend has been badly injured, and I wish to petition the Goddess to heal her."The man eyes you appraisingly. >Roll 1D100

You may pass, so long as you and your demons can endure a single round of combat with myself.""You alone?" you ask, eyeing the demon behind him. It grins, showing off far too many teeth. The man nods. "I alone. Nue will merely watch.">agree?>Don't agree?

"Alright, I agree," you say, lowering Madeline gently to the ground. "Let's fight."The man grins viciously. "Excellent. In honour of your courage, you have my word that whether you triumph or not, I shall take your friend to see the Goddess."You step away from Madeline and raise your golf club, Pixie and Garm taking up a defensive pose next to you.>CharlesHP: 55MP: 50AttackGuardDodgeWar Howl>PixieHP: 40MP: 70AttackDodgeGuardDia>GarmHP: 110MP: 40AttackDodgeAgiFurious Charge>Select three actions>Roll 1d100 for each

>ALL GUARD/DODGEAs one, you, Pixie and Garm take up defensive postures, watching the red-clothed man cautiously.>Gaia Cult Leader>Berserker GodWith a roar, the man sweeps forward with blinding, impossible speed, crashing his fist into Pixie.

>>27850359Nah, the only times he's complained, has been when the luck of the roll completely circumnavigated what I assume were encounters.Probably encounters that would have discouraged us from coming this far.
>>27850383And now we very well may die and Garm and Pixie got splatted.Great job.

>>27850235I guess he was lying about that god being generous. He's not a spirit he can lie. But we are in range of that tent and we don't know how that god feels about lies. Or it could be like politics and our naive self just jumped into the deep side of the pool.

With a confident smirk, the man raises hand at you. The air grows impossibly chill instantly, the grass beneath your feet frosting over and then freezing solid.And then a wave of solid ice forms around you. For an instant, you are held utterly still, the spell pressing against every part of your body, locking you in place. As if from a great distance away, you can hear Madeline scream. But there is no cold. If anything, the ice feels nearly pleasant to the touch.And then it simply vanishes, and you nearly tumble forward from your newfound freedom of movement.>Charles Nulls Ice!The red-clothed man stares at you, his face twisted in shock."How..." And then he shakes his head. "No, it doesn't matter. You have survived. I will lead you to the Goddess now, if you wish.""Charles!" Madeline is dragging herself towards you, leg trailing behind her. "Are you alright!? I-I saw you caught in that ice! Are you okay?""I'm fine," you murmur, patting yourself absentmindedly. You look to your side. Pixie's broken body is lying on the grass, surrounded by a crimson smear of her own blood. She seems impossibly frail, and one of her delicate wings hangs onto her body by only a thread of torn muscle.As you watch, she fades away, vanishing into particles of light. From your other side, something similar is happening to Garm, the great hounds broken body coming apart in great clumps of shining light.>Action?

Desperately you draw out your phone and activate the demon summoning program, your fingers a blur on the screen.Trembling slightly, you turn to the page that shows your current demons.Pixie and Garm are both there, but their portraits are greyed out. You're not entirely sure what that means. Once again you curse your lack of your PC.You tap on Pixie's portrait, and her data screen pops up. In the top corner, in bold red letters is a single word: DEAD. You check Garm. The same.You close your eyes for a moment, body shaking with grief. After a moment, you shake your head. No. For better or for worse, they still seem to be on your phone. There must be a way to bring them back.There /must/ be.For now though, you need to deal with the situation your in, or their sacrifice will be entirely worthless.>Go see the Goddess>Other?

>>27850789You bond quickly. You had sea monkeys when you were younger.If people really don't like it, I can rewrite it. I was just trying to capture what seemed to be the mood on the thread.
>>27850789Well pixie was nice at least and normal people generally do not react well to people being killed right in front of them.
>>27850789I think we're upset about Pixie, not Garm.Pixie WAS the one who helped us fight Garm and healed Madeline, even if at our order.
>>27850710>Go see the GoddessThey will return to us! eventually
>>27850710The dog. Not so much. The pixie. We screwed up and she payed the price. And we still owe her for helping out.
>>27850833She is going to be pissed when we revive her. She will probably ask us to take her to dinner or something. Women.At least that one doesn't smell our underwear as her hobby.
>>27850866Not yet, at least.
>>27850817>You bond quickly. You had sea monkeys when you were younger.That's hilarious.But you don't have to rewrite it, it was just a comment. I empathize with shock and dismay at the sudden, bloody deaths, but I wouldn't be shaking in grief.

>>27850866>>27850873>>27850899Yeah... Let's not hide pixie in our clothes. Maybe we are related to some incubus. Or childhood friend has been scoping us out for a decade and a half and demons have very simple mating rituals.

>>27850953>Maybe we are related to some incubus.Now I really want to go demifiend route.
Not to rain on our parade or anything, but we should check our phone for our own stats and how the hell we managed to null ice without either a Magatama or Demonica armor or anyone casting Void Ice on us.
"Come on," You say to Madeline, picking her up gently. "Let's go.""A... are you alright?" she asks, clinging to your back. "I mean, they're both..."She trails off, unwilling to finish the sentence. It's probably for your sake. You can't imagine that she's unhappy to see Garm gone. Even your feelings on the hound are mixed. But Pixie... Pixie had a certain charm to her. An energy that was easy to grow fond of. You hope that you can find a way to bring her back to life quickly....Your shoulder feels uncomfortably light."I'm fine," you reply, voice steady. "I don't think they're quite gone yet. There's still some records of them on the phone.""And that means they're still... here?" Madeline asks, her voice curious."I hope so," You reply.There's silence after that as you tread through the camp after the cultist leader. In a few moments, you're standing in front of the large central tent. "This is the temple of the Goddess Parvati," The man says calmly. It appears that your previous 'fight' barely even made him work up a sweat. "Show her the respect due to her position, or I will kill you."He doesn't wait for your reply and instead simply opens the flap on the tent and steps in. You follow.>More in next post
>>27851015This is just some spitballing but what if we fuse their corpses and resummon them?
>>27851045No fusing Pixie. Not ever. We made a promise.
>>27851064You'd rather her dead?
>>27851045You can fuse dead demons. But this creates a hefty chance for a fusion error. Which isn't necessarily bad. Just very random.
Any chance our antique trenchcoat is the reason we null ice? It was mentioned that it had an "odd air about it" in the previous thread.
>>27851093Maybe the godess can revive her?
>>27851093Its temporary at the moment.
>>27851135Screw that, bitch would probably want some big time sacrifices or something in exchange.

>>27851208>>27851237>>27851257Hey, remember that Cult Leader guy? Remember when he said>"Show her the respect due to her position, or I will kill you."?
For a moment, the relative darkness of the tent, lit only by a scarce few torches, has you nearly blind. It takes a few second for your eyes to adapt and vision to truly return.And then another light, far more intense than mere flame could ever be, illuminates the tent. It is a gentle radiance, soft and warm, and a tranquil aura fills the area. In the newfound light you see fine rugs and tapestries, masterfully woven and beautifully patterned. Gold and jewels are heaped in piles around the room, gleaming under the light.And all of it pales compared to the woman sitting in the centre of the tent, the source of the divine radiance. She is nearly unbearably beautiful to look at.She smiles at you."Welcome, traveller," she says, her voice soft and gentle. "Please, be seated."She gestures at two plump cushions opposite her. You sit, sliding Madeline onto the other with great care."I am Parvati, consort to great Shiva. I know why you have come," Parvati says, her voice melancholy. "But I do not know you. There is a certain sadness in the way you bear yourself. Will you tell me the events that have brought you to this place?">Yes>No, skip to the point
>>27851308>YesShe seems like significantly less of a murderous asshole than Mr. Cult Leader.

>>27851376Yes, and? It's not like I'm saying we should call him a murder asshole.
>>27851395"I had sea monkeys as a kid."
>>27851308Yes, let's explain ourselves fully and avoid disrespecting the Goddess.
>>27851421Welp, you've sure as hell convinced me. Evoke that pathos!

You tell her. You tell her about the demon summoning program. You tell her about meeting Pixie and Garm. You tell her about the journey here, and the battle with the leader of her cult.After you are finished, she sighs. "Please forgive Sven. He is overly protective of me, I fear, and a firm believer in the ideals of Chaos. No doubt he saw something in you that he wished to test."You don't say anything to that, and she merely smiles again. "But perhaps that is too much for me to ask. At the least, allow me to help heal the grudge between you, before it grows any further."She reaches into the pile of jewellery next to her and brings out two beads. She passes them to you.>Revival Bead x2 gained!"These are artefacts of some power. With them, you may revive your slain demons. Simply focus upon the beads, and they will do the rest.">Use now?>Continue talking to the Goddess about healing Madeline?>Bring up another subject?

We should wait anyway. Manners and all that.

"Thank you," you say, voice thick with sincerity. "May I use them now?"Parvati nods, smiling gently.You focus on one of the beads, thinking of Pixie as you do so. After a moment, the bead glows brightly, before simply vanishing into non-existence.The tent flap flies open and Sven charges in, his wrathful gaze aimed at you. Parvati raises a hand."Peace, Sven. What he does, he does with my blessing."Sven hesitates for a moment, and then nods. He leaves, closing the tent flap behind him as he does so."Sven is quite sensitive to magic of all kinds," Parvati says. "And he is also quite protective of me. But there should be no more interruptions. Please, continue."You tap open the demon summoning program on your phone. Pixie's portrait is back to normal, showing her face in full colour. With a slightly trembling hand, you tap the image on the screen.There's a flash, and the small fairy is suddenly floating in the air before you. Her body is covered in wounds."Oh. I'm alive," Pixie says, examining herself. "A little beaten up, but nothing I can't fix."She raises a hand. "Dia!"The soft glow of healing magic covers her, and her injuries heal almost instantly. She gives herself a quick check, and nods in satisfaction.Then she wheels on you, pointing a finger directly at your face. "You!"You lean back. "Yes?""Stop picking fights with people! Seriously! Use your head!"You don't say anything back, and the fairy sighs. "Oh, whatever."Suddenly, Pixie smiles slightly. "And I guess I should thank you for bringing me back so quickly. It's... nice to see that you care."She floats over to you face and gently kisses your cheek. "There. That's your reward, ok?"On the pillow next to yours, Madeline makes a noise of extreme discontent, while Pixie hums pleasantly to herself as she settles on your shoulder.>Too long
>>27852106>>27852171>>27852225Yeah, I'll use one of those from now on.
>>27852365And then we later fuse her into a sexy, sexy Femme. Awww, yeah nigga.Just joking, even when we should fuse, we won't. Unless we get Mitamas at some point
>>27852365Pixie too cute.
>>27852469We have to make her part of our demonic boxer sniffing harem
>>27852514She's the right size, just stick her down in them when Madeline isn't looking.
Just a heads-up, we're on Page 7
>>27852365You quickly revive Garm as well, if only to distract yourself from the tension between Pixie and Madeline, but leave the hound in your phone."Thank you, so much," You say again to Parvati, "Truly. Thank you."Parvati nods and you continue."But there was another reason I came here.""Yes," Parvati says. "Your friend, Madeline. I can feel her injury."She pauses for a second, and then sighs, shaking her head. "I am sorry, but I cannot help."You blink. "Is there a reason why not?""The wound Madeline has suffered is deep, and it would take the grandest class of healing magics to truly repair the damage." Parvati responds. "Under normal circumstances, I would be capable of such, and would gladly heal her. But... these are not normal circumstances."Parvati stands. "There is a great force in these lands. One unnatural and pervasive. Right now, I must devote all my power to holding it at bay. It was for that reason that I called the Gaian cult here. To defend me and to strike back this foe. Until it is banishes, I cannot extend my power to heal Madeline."You stare at the goddess. "What is this enemy?"Her gaze is solemn. "I speak of the Heavenly Host. At this very moment, they are constructing a great church within this park. Worse still, they have mortal servants aiding them. Soon, unless they are stopped, they will be able to assemble a grand force."Angels. She's talking about angels. You're not sure what to make of a Hindu goddess fighting angels in Brooklyn. The whole thing seems a bit surreal.>Ask for more details about her plans>Ask if she knows anyone else who can heal Madeline>other
>>27852684>GaianHey OP, Devil Cortex much?
>>27852684>ask if she knows anyone else who can heal MadelineAnd then, without making any overt offer, ask that if, perhaps, we helped stop the Heavenly Host, her power would be free to help our friend.
>>27852715I am unsure of what you are talking about, in SMT the Gaians are the chaotic guys
>>27852715Huh? The Cult of Gaia show up in pretty much every SMT in one way or another.>>27852615I'm almost finished the thread. Another few posts at most.Could I ask someone to archive while I keep writing?I never know what to put in the description boxes.
>>27852684>Ask if she knows anyone else who can heal MadelineI hope we can avoid getting wrapped up in LAW vs. CHAOS this early. Plus, if Sven hasn't ripped these guys into their component pieces by now I don't think we can take them.
>>27852684>Ask for more details about her plansand we could take a look on the Angels later
>>27852788I'll go do it. Something vague is best.
>>27852684>Ask for more details about her plans
CHECK OUT OUR FUCKING COATWHY THE FUCK DO WE VOID ICE
Rolled 12>>27852684>>Ask if she knows anyone else who can heal MadelineNumber one priority. Angels ain't our business- we JUST got our shit wrecked by the guy outside the door- I'd rather not go headfirst into fighting angels just to get our demons killed again.So, let's get our friend fixed up.
>>27852684>Ask if she knows anyone else who can heal Madeline
>>27852684> Thank her for the info and ask if she knows anyone else who can heal Madeline> Ask about how we weren't hurt by Sven's magic
>>27852684>>Ask if she knows anyone else who can heal MadelineThis was the whole reason we came to this place
>>27852684> Thank her for the info and ask if she knows anyone else who can heal Madeline>or more information about the magicWe might have to put her on Garm for transport or capture a large flying creature. Since garm is the one who injured her I suggest we get more summons asap.
>>27852684You nod. "I understand. If that's the case, is there any other you know that could heal the wound?"Parvati sighs. "Several. But their situations are similar. This is not an isolated event. The Messians are building several churches within the city, and each is being challenged by a divinity. While this war continues, I fear that you will find few who have both the power to heal the wound and the inclination to do so.""So there's no-one?" You ask insistently. "No-one at all?"Parvati hesitates. "There is someone. The angel commanding the construction of the church that I am challenging. He would have the power to heal your friends wound, and would likely happily do so."You frown. "Why would you tell me that?""This conflict will already cause a great number of mortals a great deal of suffering," Parvati replies. "I cannot bear to only increase that suffering. Apart from that angel, I can only suggest that you use the demon summoning programs fusion application. Though how long that would take, I could not say."With that, the conversation comes to an end. Sven enters the room, and escorts you and Madeline out."You have heard what the Goddess has to say?" He asks. You nod.He smiles. "Good. Then think on it. Think on the path you should take from this point forth."He turns away.QUEST COMPLETECharles's Lvl increased!Charles is now Lvl 2!Pixie's Lvl increased!Pixie is now Lvl 2!
>>27853166Thanks for running peaty that Garm didn't level up
>>27853166Fuck law and fuck chaosChoosing which one to help us will severely lock us in one path.Peaceful days are over.Let's grind.Let's survive.
>>27853166I say we focus on our priorities and seek the messians to heal boxer sniffer.
>>27853166>From this point on, you can see the statistics of Charles and your demons!>Charles's stats>STR:5>AGI:8>LCK:7>MAG:9>INT:10>Please select the stat to increase by +1.STR increases physical damage. AGI increased accuracy and dodge rate. LCK is a slight increase to accuracy and dodge, and also improves critical rate. INT improves your ability to tinker with the demon summoning program and also improves your ability to negotiate with demons. MAG increases magical damage.
Rolled 83>>27853250Well he is already level 11
>>27853330Can we increase HP or does that increase automatically?Otherwise, yeah, I think we need agility. We need to be able to mitigate damage, because right now we cannot take a hit.
>>27853330>MAG increases magical damage.Lets go full wizard route
>>27853166We need to question pixie on Healing spells. Did we feel anything on level up... like a little bit more strength or magic. We might have to learn the healing spell to use on Madeline.captcha college ewimeriYes captcha we might end taking care of Madeline for the rest of our life unless we learn us some healing magic.>>27853357This guy knows what's up
>>27853250Garm is level 11. He's something of a crutch character. Or would be, if you hadn't picked a fight with one of the strongest humans in the story.
>>27853330luckwith how we sometimes roll, we'll need it
>>27853367HP increases automatically, as does MP.
Rolled 15>>27853330Magic. Always go with magic in a SMT game.
>MAG>Your magical power increases!>New MAG Stat: 10And with that, I'm going to call it a night.Thanks for playing all. You've been great.
Rolled 64>>27853330I say add to Mag. We need more mana and stuff if we want to use War cry more often
>>27853385Garm while the cause of the problem has set us on the path for more power and knowledge. He is one of the triggers for this path. It would have taken us longer to get the courage to fight. And because of him we have something to fight for, have gained knowledge and are on our way to becoming a doctor with magic hands.
>>27853385>Well he is already level 11oh, ok thanks again for running
I think we should focus on INT instead. If we get a lot better at INT, we can do all sorts of colossal bullshit. Like, say, copying a demon before fusing it. Or possibly even *de-fusing* a demon, or even stupid shit like fusing our smartphones with ourselves.
>>27853590why not make pokeballs while you're at it
>>27853330how does luck increase crit?
>>27853607Like the little demonwands from Devil Summoner 3!
>>27853590Definitely>>27853607Ohh that's easy. You need a ruggedized nanopet with mini-usb attachments and attach six to your belt. Our wear two smart watches and run one DS program on each
>>27853330So INT and MAG is our two main stats, then AGI and LCK are our secondary statsStrength is our dump, like every SMT protag should do if they can magic. If not, well shit.
>>27850833Garm was endearing in that waifu mutilating wayhis heart was in the right place, just not his teeth or claws.
