[1/4] BRRN BRRN BRRN BRRN You give a small moan as you roll out of bed, your head now pounding as roll your face into the pillow. You remember that last night the group of actors was having an early celebration with the upcoming 50th episode. As the main actress, it was only natural for you to show up, but the only thing you remember from last night was accepting a bottle of scotch and then... Quite frankly you can’t even remember that. You roll out of bed, still in your camisole and panties, lured by the smell of a tantalizing breakfast that is coming from your kitchen. “Mmm.... Food...” you mutter as you open the kitchen door. “Ralamamadingdong...” you boyfriend mutters to himself as he’s busy cooking french toast over the over. “Mmmm... That smells just divine...” you mutter aloud as you walk over to the stack of french toast, mouth watering all the time. “Well look who’s up!” your boyfriend says as he flips a piece of french toast. “Given how much you had to drink last night I thought you’d be out all day!” “Food first, then bed.” you mutter as you head over to your cupboard to get a plate for yourself. “Bed? Don’t you have work today?” your boyfriend asks you. You shake your head as you dig out your fork and knife. “Na, schedule shift. Wednesdays are a half day.” “You know today is Tuesday right Rebecca?” your boyfriend asks you.
[2/3]You swear your heart nearly skips a beat as you hear this. Reaching around over to the change dish on the counter, you tap your iphone to see that the date is indeed Tuesday, October 22nd... And you start work in 30 minutes.Your jaw suddenly goes wide in realization of this. “Y-You asshole! Why didn’t you tell me!?”“Woah woah what? You didn’t even tell me of a schedule shift!” your boyfriend says turning around with a confusion expression on his face.“EERRRGGG!” you growl as you quickly head back into your room, digging out your clothing in a flash. “Yes I did! I thought I told you last week!” “No you didn’t! This is the first time I heard of it!” your boyfriend calls out. “I guess this means you’re having Nutri-grain for breakfast on the bus?” “FOUR OF THEM!” you belt back at him as you dig out the dress of Brooklyn Browning, the character you play as and put it on in a flash. “And I’m going to take a cab now since someone didn’t wake me up on time!” “Love you too!” you boyfriend says as he gives you a small peck on the cheek as you race out the door. ****** As you approach Four Leaf Studios, getting out of the taxi cab, you can see the security guard at the gate, reading a magazine calmly in his booth. “Wellman let me through, I don’t have the time!” you urgently say to him. “Pass pl-” “LET ME IN YOU FAT FUCK!” you say slamming your employee pass against the glass.
[3/3] “Good luck Rebecca, you’re gonna need it before tears your head off.” The security guard says as he waves you through. Shit! He’s right! The main director hates tardiness! You were lucky to get an acting gig like this! You turn around the corner, seeing the set of Hero Quest Rena being set up on the side. “SORRYRENADON’THAVETIME!” you immediately say to Rena as you race by her as she’s trying to wave. You immediately race inside of the area, nearly kicking open the door for Succubus Lord Quest studio. You can see the set already mainly being set up by the stagehands. “Leo! Where’s the director!?” you ask Leo as she is getting her Oksana makeup applied. “The chair. He’s... testy now. So be careful.” Leo warns. “Thank you!” you say running over to the directors chair nearby, before stopping in front of it while gasping for breath. “Mr. Act, sorry I-” “Care to explain why you’re 15 minutes late?” Mr. Act asks while still looking at the stage being set up. You can see Arum’s actor, Kelsie, pointing and snickering at you right now. Bitch... she only looks like that because she’s anorexic anyhow!
>>27884025"I'm sorry sir. I overslept."
>>27884025Apologize, blame being an idiot.
My god! I've been waiting for this thread forever!"There is no excuse. I assure you it won't happen again!"
>>27884324You heard the man! Commit to our games!
>>27884025"BECAUSE THERE WAS A CRASH ON THE ROAD YOU FUCKIN ASSHOLE."
>>27883999I have had no sleep for about 4 days now. Today was to be the day I sleptAnd then you had to do the 50th thread todayWell fuck me then, another sleepless nightI hope you are happyI am
>>27884324Forgot your image.
>>27884382lol! Perfect image!
>>27883999what is this?
[1/3] “I’m sorry sir! I overslept! It was due to be being an idiot! It won’t happen again, I promise!” you say profusely apologizing to the point of bending down. You NEED this job damnit! This is supposed to be your first big role as a lead actress, and if you blew it by a single party... Well let’s say you’re going to get quite loaded at the bar afterwards. “Yea yea... You’re lucky Quimby is having some camera problems.” The director says not looking from from his script. “By the way, the script calls for leather battle armour, not the dress.” You look down, you heart actually skipping a beat as a horrified look spreads across your face. “...Whatever. Just use your light magic to bend the light.” The director says before he reaches for his megaphone. “PLACES EVERYONE!”
[2/3] Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the 50th edition of Succubus Lord Quest! Now complete with a catering service in front of a live NEET audience! (BTW, you pay for any food you take.) Last time on Succubus Lord Quest after Brooklyn nearly has his mind imploded by Miyian tier math. After which we had a stroll through a street, and no thanks to a nosy pair of Gemelli, named Lita and Aria, was ambushed by a Miyian gang. However thanks to the help of Lita, Aria, and Latooni (A Miyian from the Church of Pamille), they were able to push back the Miyian gang. After agreeing to an interview with the Gemelli pair, we went off to see Arum, which had bad news as she leared something is heading towards Fort Hope, as it was observant enough to track down three well trained Laminians and execute them during the travel. After summoning Lamia to prove we knew the Queen’s, and then Lamia’s trolling of them, we now return to where we left off! Also apologies for the lack of threads. I took a week off for exams, then the next week I must’ve got food poisoning from Thanksgiving dinner, feeling sick as hell to take a day off during the time I was supposed to catch up on work. Work is caught up with though, and now the gif perfectly explains what I feel like.
[3/3] After spending some time summoning Queen Oksana, you decide to double up and summon Queen Miyu as well. You want some answers regarding just who, or what, is heading towards Old TO. “See, the reason why a chair makes a good Administrator is because they’re strong and dependable, and what lady doesn’t love a solid oak chair!?” Lamia asks. “BECAUSE A CHAIR ISN’T ANIMATE!” Arum says screaming at Lamia. “...Are you a specist Arum? I’m pretty sure if I used Life or Chair Control to bring this chair to life, it’d have quite different opinions than yours. I mean you don’t put down people who are in comas don’t you?” Lamia asks with a sly smile. “...She’s at it again isn’t she?” Miyu asks. “Yup.” Oksana replies while sitting on a chair. “Been at it for your entire summoning ritual.” “More like ever since she materialized. Ada has just given up trying to debate with her and is just now drinking in the corner.” you reply pointing to Ada, who just has a mug of beer and hand covering her face.
>>27884539... How did you get food poisoning from thanksgiving dinner in October?
>>27884610Canadian Thanksgiving is in October
>>27884584Can you get her to act serious for five minutes? We've got some serious issues to deal with here.
>>27884584Help me you sluts, there's a ghost coming to fucking chop off my head.
>>27884656A bit rude.
>>27884584"Lamia, behave."if she doesn't mime writing down "Lamia get no aether for the next... month"
>>27884584Could you two please get her to behave for five minutes. I have a bit of a situation here.
>>27884584"Stop, please. There's a small issue that I need help dealing with."
[1/2] “Lamia! Can you be quiet for the next five minutes please!?” you ask her. “We have a serious problem on our hands in that some sorta super ghost is coming to Fort Hope for my fucking head!” “OK~!” Lamia happily says as she walks over to the other Queen’s. “...Who are these two you just summoned?” Arum asks. “My name is Oksana and her’s in Miyu.” Oksana says pointing to herself then Miyu with her staff. “...THE Oksana and THE Miyu?” Arum asks. “Yes. Brooklyn took the time to summon as one of our royal members wouldn’t behave properly.” Miyu says glaring over at Lamia. Lamia just does her best to smile cutely as if she did nothing wrong. “So what appears to be the problem?” Oksana asks. “Brooklyn here says that she has some information on the strange... whatever the hell tracked down and killed two of my agents while rendering the other so scared that I’m scared she’ll die of a heart attack.” Arum explains. “First question is why did it let her live.” Miyu immediately replies. “The creature knew that my last agent knows space control. When it found that out, he made her cast a locator spell on a piece of cloth. She was able to escape only by a flash teleport spell at the last second, just as the monster was about to cut off her head.” Arum explains. “She won’t tell much, other than the monster practiced both Light and Dark magic very well.”
>>27884767Threaten to cut off her supply of loliphiles and dress her in ridiculous outfits
[2/2] “See that’s... That’s what worries me... I was killed by some figure in a dream I had, one that was in a lab and also used light and dark magic attacks. I thought it was just a silly dream, but then Erika had a dream of the same figure going through Fort Hope on a rampage.” you reply. “...We just learned that the same figure attacked Fort Hope last night.” Oksana and Miyu are silent for a few seconds, before they both look at each other out of the corner of their eyes. “...Do you know what kind of lab was it?” “It uh... Looked like some sort of Alchemy lab. It was hard to tell since the same creature went on a rampage and took out most of the things in the lab. It’s still rather hazy in my mind...” you reply. “Did Erika get a good look at it?” Lamia asks. “How about anyone in Fort Hope?” Oksana adds. “No... No Erika didn’t get a good look at it. The figure was dressed in an aura of darkness the entire time. Kinda like me when I use my darkness form. I do-” “Kinda like you or EXACTLY like you?” Oksana replies. You think back hard to your dream, trying to remember the darkness form the creature took. “...Pretty... much exactly like mine.” Oksana’s eyes goes wide as apparently she realizes something horrible, sitting back down in the chair from the realization. “Oh no... Oh no those bastards didn’t...”
>>27885205"Is this bad?"
>>27885205um... how bad is it?
>>27885205I assume my corpse is about to come hunt me?
>>27885205Ok, what didn't those bastards do?
>>27885205"Excellent news! Not only do you know what it is, but you know a likely culprit as well!"
“...This is bad isn’t it?” you ask Oksana. “No... No it’s not bad at all...” Oksana replies. “...It’s terrible isn’t it?” Miyu asks. Oksana simply nods. “What... we have here is a special sort of Draugr, a form of super zombie. Normally when one is raised, it is tasked to either protect something... or hunt someone unendingly to the ends of the universe.” “...Oh...” you reply. “It gets worse. See, there was a theory that if you can split one’s aether signature into two bodies, then the Draugr would get the abilities of the one it shared Aether with... In the addition to it’s own superhuman power boost.” Oksana replies. “...Wait... Wait what? You’re saying this bastard can do everything I can do!?” you ask in a panic. “But better.” Miyu replies. “And it’ll only get worse. It’ll grow in power as you grow in power as well.” Oksana replies. “Then just dust the damn zombie and move on!” Lamia replies. “Easy peasy!” “Draugr’s don’t stay until they’ve accomplished their tasks. You can kill one, but it’ll only get right back up some time later and attempt to continue.” Oksana replies. “Even vaporizing one won’t do you any good. They’ll just reform somewhere else.”
>>27885749So trap it! Forever! Or can you kill the creator and destroy it?
>>27885749Then we need to trap it somewhere it can't do any harm... I suppose you guys are about to get one nasty cellmate.
>>27885749"Then...I need to kill myself!"
>>27885874this, because the reaction would be amusing.
>>27885965this, so we can continue to confuse and annoy the hell out of everyone
“Then...I need to kill myself!" you say aloud. Miyu and Lamia just give you odd stares as you say this. Oksana shakes her head while her hand still rests on her forehead. “You’d just be giving it what it wants. The only way I know of how to kill it is to kill whoever the owner is, and you’d know who that is when the Draugr listens to them. Once they’re dead, the Draugr will be ‘mortal’ in a sense so that the next death or two will be permanent.” “Can’t I just trap it?” you ask Oksana. “Don’t you know space control?” Oksana replies in kind. “Yea but I-” you stop yourself in mid-sentence upon realizing the horrible implications of this. “Wait a fucking second! Are you saying it’d know space control too!?” “It most likely already does. The only reason it stopped to force the Laminian to do a ritual is because, like you, it doesn’t know anything beyond the basics. When you darted in and out of places, it probably caused the Draugr’s tracking spell to flicker. When that was the case, it found someone who had more potential in space control for it.” “Never mind that! Are you saying that it’d eventually learn how to rip open portals and just teleport to me!?” you demand. Oksana takes a deep breath before replying. “...Yes Brooklyn. That’s exactly the case. With space control, it’d become very difficult to trap as well.”
>>27886192"Wait, does it know how to make tea as well?"
>>27886192So, how do we stop it? If you say somethingridiculous like kill a demon king or emperor I will go out and buy a table, spend hour meticulously setting up elaborate and neat displays, then flip the damn thing in rage
"Wait, does it know how to make tea as well?" you ask."Most certainly yes, since it'd share all of your knowledge up to some point." Miyu replies."Concentrate Brooklyn!" Amanda scolds you.
>>27886266"Wait, if I get amnesia, would it also get amnesia?"
>>27886192"So what do.""I mean, I need to /kill/ myself. Not actually kill myself, but make it think I'm dead."
>>27886266Excuse me for freaking out here now that I have a murderous doppleganger. Than the only way to deal with it is to have my students get stronger than me and take care of it.
>>27886433That won't help, we need to kill the master. Or somehow figure out a weakness in the spell. I kind of want to make this into our butler.
>>27886266"and what would happen if his master broke his teaset?"
Well I'm certianly glad that we worked on our Teamanship rather than powergaming.
>>27886457>>27886489Isn't the master that king of despair thing?
[1/2] So, how do we stop it?” you ask. “If you say something ridiculous like kill a demon king or emperor I will go out and buy a table, spend hour meticulously setting up elaborate and neat displays, then flip the damn thing in rage.” “You need to kill the owner. It may be a mortal... Or it may be a Demon Emperor.” Oksana replies. “It could be anything. The only two rules of thumb for the Draugr is that it will only listen to it’s owner, but above all will try to kill you whenever it thinks it can get away with it.” “So it’s just a dumb, mindless zombie. Powerful, but dumb. An issue yes, but certainly not a problem!” Amanda says. “Actually no. Draugr’s are very intelligent. They don’t just mindlessly attack. They have all the cunning as any normal intelligent being does.” Oksana replies. “But that’s whenever it sees you or gets a chance. Otherwise it’d be fulfilling... whatever the hell their master wants them to do.” “...Come to think of it, didn’t one of these things also attack the Okarian Embassy one time?” Miyu asks. “The one sent by that Greed Demon Duke Necromancer? Yes.” Oksana says, her hands gripping her staff tighter. “That son of a bitch used the body of my dead wife, Makoto.” “...Ah yes. Then went Janine sent it to the Miyian University for study, it came back to life, destroyed the university, then rampaged across town for several days trying to find you.” Miyu replies to Oksana.
[2/2] “It was destroying everything because it was tearing the city apart piece by piece to find me.” Oksana clarifies. “Yea, I had to pull some deep cover in order to find out that the Greed Demon Duke used illegal Necromancy, and the Pride Demon’s... didn’t like that.” Lamia replies. “Was entertaining to see them do house cleaning!” “Several days!?” you gasp in amazement. “Yes, but Makoto was a Dutchess level Demon herself. It nearly killed me the first time by sheer shock of seeing my dead wife.” Oksana admits. “It was Janette who was the one who decided to take the fury of the Makoto Draugr and the one to finally put it rest. Needless to say it nearly popped the lid on the Succubi secrecy agreement we had going on back then too.” Miyu replies.
>>27886630We can use the fate spell to find out who is the master of that thingy.
>>27886703"Thanks for the impromptu history lesson, but are you suggesting that I just need to sit back and let myself get killed?"
>>27886703Good thing I have that fate spell so I can find out who made it
>>27886703"Could the Draugr in theory learn how to break from it's master's grasp if I simply train my willpower enough?"
Ask whom the master is. The person who made it is not necessarily the same as who is controlling it.
>>27886829Yea, use fate spell for that.
"Thanks for the impromptu history lesson, but are you suggesting that I just need to sit back and let myself get killed?" you ask. “Of course not. It’s just that you may need to tighten up your personal security a little more.” Miyu replies. “Right... A little...” Lamia says holding back her snickering. “Could the Draugr in theory learn how to break from it's master's grasp if I simply train my willpower enough?" you ask. “It won’t want to. If anything it is incredibly angry at you for past transgressions.” Oksana replies. “What the hell did I ever do to it!?” you ask. “Well... You did leave it cold and lifeless on the concrete slab back on the shrine instead of a proper burial.” Lamia recalls. “...God... Damnit...” you say, recalling that you never did get a chance to bury your body.
>>27886926"Run away from it forever. Great plan."
>>27886926But this problem does have a simple solution. I use the fate spell to discover the master, and kill them
>>27886926"Shouldn't it also know that I wasn't going to leave it there?" "I mean the guys that denied him a proper resting place were the guys who grabbed him from the altar before I could recover him.""Let me guess, it doesn't care.""AND THAT'S WHY YOU DON'T HAVE A PROPER RESTING PLACE!"
>>27885874Just remember to dispose of the corpse properly this time.
"Shouldn't it also know that I wasn't going to leave it there? I mean the guys that denied him a proper resting place were the guys who grabbed him from the altar before I could recover him." you reply. “Let me guess, it doesn't care. THAT'S WHY IT DOESN’T HAVE A PROPER RESTING PLACE!" “Brooklyn! Calm down! We don’t need you breaking now of all times!” Ada calls out to you. “AN INVINCIBLE ZOMBIE ASSASSIN IS AFTER ME! OF COURSE I’M BREAKING DOWN!” you reply. “But I got a solution to this! With the Question Fate ritual I can easily find out who the owner is, kill them, and be done with this damn ghost!” “And if the ritual fails to find them?” Miyu asks. (Are you sure you want to cast the ritual? I ask there is a limit to the amount of times one can cast it per month)
>>27887429Yes, though we should think what to do with the extra question before
>>27887429We've cast the ritual,what, once before? And I doubt we're suddenly going to be trying to do it all the time now. Unless there's a good reason not to, let's cast it and get some info.
>>27887429What are the chances of the ritual failing? I can't remember what the rules for it are.
Rolled 54>>27887689checking for ritual
>>27887743We're only supposed to roll when prompted. Its best of two I think.
“I’m sure it’ll turn up something!” you say as you begin to set up the next ritual. Arum can only sigh as you set up another ritual. “That candle wax is going to be so hard to get out of the floor...” Preparing the Question Fate ritual by making a circle of candles and some string, you get Amanda to help you out with the ritual. Pretty soon, you’re sure that you cast it once you feel yourself become part of something far greater. “Ha! Let’s see you take this mysterious doppleganger! Fate! Who is the one controlling my doppleganger!?”? “That... That can’t be right.” you repeat to yourself. “What I meant was that a Draugr who has my powers is hunting me down. I want to know who the owner of this Draugr is.” you ask.? “DAMNIT NO!” you reply, your heart skipping a beat in terror. “Then where is the owner of the Draugr!?”? “Not picking up a response?” Oksana replies. “Y-Yes! I mean I think I should be able to get three questions out of it, but the only thing I’m getting back is nothing!” you reply. “That means the owner has some wards up protecting his location and identity.” Arum replies. “Fate rituals usually hit heads hard against most sorts of wards.”
>>27887788Well shit. Could we get something with more vague questions or does the ritual just see a huge blank?
>>27887788Did we use up our three questions or can we still ask something we'd get an answer to?
>>27888005Questions which cannot be answered in some way do not count as used up. so you still have three questions.
>>27888063So we can keep asking until we get some sort of info?
>>27887788fuck I told you all the only way to beat this thing is to kill ourselves.
>>27888076We could ask other things.
>>27888076Sure, but questions that have been answered with a ? will not yield information unless either:A) Worded differentlyB) Any wards protecting the user are broken (And before it is attempting, asking where the ward protecting the owner is won't work either)
>>27888063Is it clever enough to figure out when it's being blocked by wards, so we can ask it stuff like where the places it can't see are?
>>27888063Where is the Draugr right now?If nothing changes, how long until it reaches here?What is Lamia's most embarrassing secret?... payback's a bitch.
>>27888117Would something akin to "Where can I find someone that know who is controlling the Draugr?" work, otherwise "Is the king of despair involved" seems like a good idea>>27888149Can't read the past anon.
>>27888164Can't read the future actually. Past and present are viable for Question Fate.
>>27888117Question; If the owner of the Draugr has a master or is a slave to another being, does that being also have control over the Draugr or is it only able to be controlled by it's owner?I ask because we already know who's influenced the taking of our body....And If the Draugr can be controled by it's owners superiors....
>>27888198Welp, even if we can't learn about the Draugr, looks like we're learning a bit about Lamia.
>>27887788SO, I had a thought, or rather a thought had me.Cliff notes version:Brooklyn goes off on a hero hunt while dodging undead twin, find hero play little victim girl for him/her, sick hero on druegar, hero hopefully kills druegar but comes back, hero goes on quest to kill the creator.So in the end, no matter how powerful Hero has a fighting chance.
>>27888297Could work. There is supposed to be a hero in town at the moment. I'd be nervous about how much the hero could find out about us while investigating the zombie and it's master though.
"Where can I find the person who warded himself against my previous questions."
>>27888405That is true, but! we don't have undead zombie on our tails, plus we could always just do a 'I've been framed woe is me.'
>>27888436whoops, wronged that wrong I meant to say"Where can I find the person who created the wards against my previous questions."
>>27888405So we learn a bit about him before we get in a position where he can learn too much. I mean, he did enter a city full of succubi and has yet to go on a murderous rampage... That's something, right? It at least places him as more reasonable then that paladin was..It's at least worth looking into.
How about asking if the lab still has any clue on the Draugr, we know its location so we could just go there while leaving obvious clue to where we go to protect people.
[1/3] “If the owner of the Draugr after me has a master or is a slave to another being, does that being also have control over the Draugr after me or is it only able to be controlled by it's owner?” you ask, being very specific with the question. It is not controlled by the creature beyond the veil. The Draugr receives orders from the creature beyond the veil. “...What is the Laminian Queen’s most embarrassing secret?” you ask. “HEY!” Lamia protests. She liked to collect body hug pillows. “Iiiinnttterrreeesstttiiinnggg...” You say with a sadistic smile. “Brooklyn! Keep on track!” Ada lectures you. “Alright, last question. Where is the Draugr that is after me located?” you ask. N43 38.50074 W79 23.34828 “...Damnit random numbers...” you say sighing. “Random numbers?” Miyu asks you. “Yea. N43 38.50074 W79 23.34828 is what it gave me.” you say untangling the strings from your hands. Miyu’s eyes go wide upon hearing this, her glasses lighting up with information that she can see. “...Arum... This Laminian village is the same location as it was in the Old World right?” “Yes, why?” Arum asks. Lamia’s eyes go wide upon hearing this as well. “That’s... That’s...”
[2/3] “...That’s four of a kind right ‘ere!” the Irish accent Laminian says putting down her full hand. “BULLSHEET! Yous a cheata girl!” The rastafarian Laminian replies. As the Laminian’s play their game, a figure dressed up in a ragged brown cloak slowly walks around the corner to the Laminian stronghold, body completely covered by the simple robe and hood. It looks at the piece of clothing in it’s hands before looking up at the door, before putting the piece of clothing back in it’s pockets, walking towards the Laminian village entrance. “You’re off the table so you might as well be the The rastafarian Laminian takes a puff on her joint before she gets up. “Bitch... Alright now mon, what be ya purpose ‘ere today?” The figure only briefly looks down at the Laminian before pointing his figure towards the door. “...Ya mon. Just go ‘head and tell I’s what ya purpose for headin’ into da village is, and I’s be more dan happy to let da by’s.” The rastafarian Laminian replies. “Dun tink about attackin’ da door eider. Dat door can survive quite a beatin, and me and da rest of the girls ‘ere can easily take you down before manage to break open the door.” Upon hearing that, the figure reaches for the large wrapped object on his back slowly...
[3/3] “HE’S WHERE!?” you and Arum ask, nearly flipping out. “RIGHT OUTSIDE THE DAMN VILLAGE!” Lamia yells out. “YOU NEED T-” The entire building then manages to shake as the sound of an explosion can be felt rocking the building. “...Oh... Crap...” Ada says feeling the building shake. “Brooklyn! Brooklyn!” Katlin and Stacy say rushing up the stairs. “Some... thing in a cloak just blew through the main entrance of the Laminian town!” Inside of your mind right now, you can feel yourself screaming like a little girl, which is accurate because now you’re hearing the terrified screams of many little girls.( >>27888691 should begin with MEANWHILE... , my mistake)
>>27888713Well fuck me. *Bow to the Queens* Sorry but we're going to have to cut this short. First we need to drive the Draugr away for a bit so we have time to plan. *gather up the twins and head out to do battle* You girls ready for a wild ride??
>>27888713Go out and confront it. No point in running like a little girl...
>>27888822I think informality is our rule around powerful demons.
So how the fuck are we meant to track down and kill whoever sent the thing if its about to blow up Old T.O and is 30 feet away from us
>>27888853A short bow isn't exactly formal. Just a fast polite way of cutting things short.
>>27888868We might be able to use its corpse to track down the guy we don't like. I'm sure there is some sort of spell like that somewhere.
>>27888868because the one referenced of oksana's lover/husband/wife was at least duke level, where brooklyn is not anywhere near that strong.
>>27888713Time for the third fight that might kill me since I became a succubus, I wonder what I did in my previous life to merit this.
>“Draugrs don’t stay until they’ve accomplished their tasks. You can kill one, but it’ll only get right back up some time later and attempt to continue.” Oksana replies. “Even vaporizing one won’t do you any good. They’ll just reform somewhere else.”What about Brodin's corpse-destroying thing that vaporises and specifically stops necromancy?
>>27889043Good freaking call! We need someone to get Brodin here, STAT!
>>27889043could be a case of my kongfu is better than yours, but worth a shot.
>>27888713Rush out there, hug your body and say you are sorry over and over.
>>27889062Agreed, undead abomination seems right up his alley
[1/3] “Oh... Crap...” you mutter yourself as you then give a small bow to the Queen’s. “Apologies miladies, but we’ll have to continue this meeting another time.” “Good Luck, you’re going to need it.” Oksana replies before she vanishes. “Remember there’s no shame in running away if the situation warrants it.” Miyu says as she begins to vanish. “Don’t get killed~!” Lamia says as she vanishes.Just as Lamia begins to vanish, the eyes of both Katlin and Stacy go wide.“OUT THOSE WINDOWS! NOW!” Katlin roars as she makes a beeline towards the windows. Not questioning her, all of you begin to run towards the window, you using a darkness tentacle to grab the Laminian who’s curled up into a ball terrified.The timing could not be tighter, as the moment you jump through the window is the very second that the entire top flow simply explodes. The blast wave impact does more damage than the glass shards do, hurling you against the side of the building before landing down in the alley below.A terrible ringing fills your ears as you pull yourself up off the ground, checking your face for cuts with a quick light control mirror, but only see minor cuts and scrapes.Amanda is the one who pulls you up to your legs, yelling something at you that you don’t quite understand due the ringing in your ears. Sound is restored slowly however, as you begin to to hear the sounds of a battle out in the streets. “Brooklyn! I’m glad you clarified some things with me and don’t take this the wrong way, BUT I WANT YOU OUT OF MY CITY!” Arum yells at you.
[2/3] “Arum has a point! The more we fight in here the more damage that’ll happen to the nearby civilians!” Katlin says as she lights herself on fire. “The Eastside exit still work!?” Ada asks Arum as she wipes some blood off of her mouth. “Closed down but nothing is blocking it!” Arum replies. “Then that will be the quickest way out of here!” Ada replies. “Come everyone! Move it!” As you all begin to run towards the alleyway opposite of the street, you cannot help but to peer one look at the battle going on in the streets as you cross by... In the center of the street, past the fleeing Laminian’s, a rather large battle is taking place. Succubi surrounding a hooded figure on all sides. They all attempt to charge it, but are slammed to the ground almost instantly due to the high gravity. One of them, a Belkarian, manages to continue her charge with her spear. The cloaked figure seems to easily see this coming however, using a large, black halberd like weapon to glide the Succubi’s weapon along his own. Once past, the figure makes a lightning quick movement to stab the Succubi directly in the back with a large spike on the back of his halberd, the sheer speed of it enough to flick off the cloak of the figure... You... Honestly don’t believe it. The entire world seems almost to stop as you see the figure. It’s the exact figure of you, the same as you left it that day on the altar. Face, hair, even the five o’clock shadow you had. The only thing different however is that around the eyes there is a black wrapping, intricately marked with that of a single red eye in the center. For the slightest moment, both you and the zombie Draugr lock eyes with each other.
[3/3] The zombie Draugr, unlike you, doesn’t hesitate. It lowers the halberd towards you, pointing what appears to be a black magitech cannot at you before firing. A black stream of energy coming out of the weapon and heading directly for you. “GET DOWN!” Ada says as she tackles you down to the ground, causing the beam to fly by and hit a store down the street, instantly blowing up the bottom part of it. “It... It really is me...” you mutter to yourself, still not believing what you just saw. “DAMNIT BROOKLYN! NOW’S NOT THE TIME TO GET THE SPOOKS!” Ada says as she gets back up, nearly pulling off your own arm to help you back up.
>>27889538...That should be cannon, not cannot.
>>27889538Roll around on the ground like a pig.
>>27889538Time to hightail and bring him away from the laminian city
>>27889538Yea, let's get out of here! Stacy, go grab Brodin and bring him to us. We're going to need his help with this thing. Everyone else, let's run!
>>27889538RUN RUN RUNAlso Sand, no pastebin in the OP? I've not looked at it for a while and have forgetten all our spells and whatnot
>>27889538Fire magic missiles at the "Single red eye in teh center".
>>27888843Brooklyn can run MANLY STYLE. with a fake mustache and chest hair?
>>27889538Apply Tentacles directly to the forehead band thing.
>>27889636Oh derp! I knew I forgot something!https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Um4gk-JN4CHFJJdQrJjfbzg6Q8FHcmfxP8sRDhaf-FIAlso WTF is up with the autoupdater. It wasn't working at all for me just now.
>>27889843>Also WTF is up with the autoupdater.I use 4chanX and don't have a problem, although sometimes it does not update for a minute or two
>>27889538we might want to use Enhanced Space Control to map out the area around us and find us the best/fastest exit and use Darkness to cover ourselves
Let's just focus on bailing from the area for now before anyone else gets hurt. Then we can try to kill it/shake it off.
“Right! Run... RUN! We need to get Brodin’s help with this thing or we’re as good as dead!” you say as you get up and run towards the exit. “We can try to slow it down, but we won’t be able to for long at this rate!” Arum says as she turns around. “Damnit why couldn’t it be a day when Mary was here!?” Ada brings you out of the East exit, which both you and Ada immediately slam it full of spells to blast it wide open before all you head into the sewer, your heart beating nearly twice as fast as the pace you’re running at. The sounds of a fierce battle still roaring out behind you. Thanks to Ada’s experience and your space magic, you’re both able to find out a location to the closest way out of the sewers. “Oh my ancestors... That was too close...” Amanda says climbing out of the manhole.“Not over yet. We need to find Brodin.” you say flicking some of the sewer sludge off of your clothing.“There are nearly a hundred bars in Old TO Brooklyn! Brodin can be in any one of them!” Ada says as she freezes the manhole cover shut under a thick layer of ice. “It’s Brodin! He’s going to pick the closest bar wherever he’s sleeping at!” you yell as you begin running down the street. ****** Heading back to the location nearest where the caravan was, find a bar nearby calling the Howling Wolf. Bursting through the door, the only thing you can really make sense out of is the heavy wolf motif. Right now you’re too busy trying to find Brodin to pay attention to anything else. “And den he just went... POW once da Necromancy spell broke!” Brodin says opening his arms widely. Sebastien, sitting across from him on the same table, just chuckles. “And that’s how I lost my Reaper license in Africa...” Brodin says. Seabstien laughs for a bit more, but stops suddenly once he realized what Brodin said.
>>27890099Brodin! We got a super undead evil opposite gender clone of me on the way! HEEELLPPPP!!!!
>>27890099Brodin, with all the undead you've been taking out lately you should be bucking for a promotion! Good news! We've got another one ready for you!
>>27890099Hey Bordin, feel up to some Draugr extermination?
>>27890099"There's some hot-ass necromantic magic outside. Like, right now. And it's going to kill all of us."
>>27890099"Brodin, ever had to deal with a Draugr? It seems that there is one crashing around town..... Could you help?"
“Brodin! We got a super undead evil opposite gender clone of me on the way! HEEELLPPPP!!!!” you nearly scream while running at him. “What? A male Brooklyn? Na... That’s can’t be right.” Brodin says taking a swig of his drink. “Adminstrator Arum said it was a ‘Draugr’.” Lamia says. “A what!?” Sebastien says actually getting up from his table. ...Now you’re actually scared that it got this sort of response from Sebastien. “Na that can’t be right... Draugr are a... pain in the ass to make.” Brodin says taking another gulp of his drink. “You’d have to piss of something really powerful in order for someone to send something like that after you.” You slam your fist down on the table. “Look Brodin! I know what I saw! Back in the La-” You can feel a hand on your shoulder. The sensation alone causing you nearly to jump out of your skin. “Brooklyn...” Stacy says looking over to a nearby corner of the bar. You slowly raise your eyes in the direction that Stacy’s is at. Once you’re finished, you can see Brooklyn-Draugr calmly entering the bar, before picking a nice seat that overlooks the table which has a new view of all of you, before just staring at all of you from beneath it’s cloak. You can only mutter what sounds to be whimpers of pure fear as you see the Brooklyn-Draugr sitting in the corner.
>>27890411Let's offer to buy him a drink.
>>27890411take a deep breath and calm down.
>>27890411Well shit. If it's not attacking everything the second it walks in, maybe we can talk to it. Grab Brodin, walk over, and sit down across from it. Leave everyone else at the other table to keep an eye on things and act as backup.
“...That it?” Sebastien asks. The rest of the girls can only nod in agreement. “Brooklyn... First things first... Take some deep breaths and calm down.” Sebastien orders you. “It didn’t attack us when it first came in, so don’t worry, right now you’re safe.” You continue taking some deep breaths. Your heart beginning to slow down bit by bit as you do. “OK... I’m calm. But why hasn’t it attacked us yet?” “...Could be for a few reasons. Either it’s too weak from a previous battle, it knows that if it starts a bar brawl here that it’d probably lose during the commotion, or a combination of both.” Sebastien says. “...It took on nearly an guard platoon of Succubi before coming here. How could it actually lose here!?” you ask. “That’s probably a good reason.” Ada says looking off at a nearby corner. Looking off to where Ada is, you can see a private section reserved for VIP members, but the people in them are actually Pride Demon’s. Both of them wearing blue armour as the laugh with their jokes. Sitting next to them appear to be two girls giggling, while two more Succubi dressed up in maid armour stand next to the table in perfectly ironed maid clothing. “...Those Ashuran’s probably have something to do with it as well.” Stacy says pointing at the bar front, showing at least no less than five Wrath Demon Ashura’s. “So you hear that the Princess escaped?” one of them asks. “Princess!? You mean that overprotective mother isn’t taking duels for her anymore!” The second ashuran says before pounding a closed fist into an open hand. “Bitchin! I always wanted to fight Demon Royalty!” “Don’t get your hopes up. I heard she was a weakling unlike her mother.” A third one says taking a sip of his drink. “...Tch. That’s a damn shame.” the second one replies before finishing off his drink.
>>27890833Princess? What princess? Inquiring minds want to know!
>>27890833Okay you might be right. I need to clam down
>>27890833Magic up a sign "Parley?" to the D-thingy.
>>27890937Ummm no we already have attracted way to much attention. Want to listen in but at the same time we need to get out. could could use space control and fake a change from our evil Doppler ganger to fight the Ashuran's. but i really don't think that is a good idea in the long run as it would start drawing investigations in our direction..I think we should try to sneak out through the back maybe take a corner leave an illusion and leave cloaked. (however that proably won't work if it hunts lamian's for sport
>>27891096Remember, it knows everything you do.Which means Aura sight.
>>27891176Good thing it doesn't know the ritual to the Demon Queens and gave that knowledge to whatever summoned him in order to hurt us right?
>>27891176just thought of something go into back lock door (with science). he won't be able to bash it down without starting a fight.have Stacy tunnel our way out with earth control.
>>27890833Just talk to the goddam thing, it's intelligent and probably got a link to it master for use to patch through.
>>27891269Honestly? Would it need the ritual? Whoever took the body knew where the Shrine was in the first place.
>>27891296I agree. This is probably our only chance to talk to it and dig for information. Let's not waste it.
>>27891274oh forgot to add cloak while doing so as while it may be able to detect people through walls it may dampen our signature enough to get away
“You know... Maybe I’ll... Just try to talk to it! I mean it’s an intelligent creature right!? I should be able to reason with it!” you say. All of the other people in the group just look each other as you say this. “RIGHT!?” you ask, starting to get worried. “...30 paces.” Sebastien says. “Pardon?” you reply. “Talk from 30 paces away. That way you’ll be able to see any attacks coming from it in time to dodge.” Sebastien warns. “Brooklyn! Don’t do this! This is the same as suicide!” Amanda says, grabbing onto your arm and begging you. “Oh don’t worry Amanda! I’ll be far enough away to make sure nothing disastrous happens!” you say patting her on head and turning around towards the Brooklyn-Draugr. “...I hope.” You stop at what you guess about 30 paces away from the Brooklyn-Draugr. Even though you’re 30 paces away, you can see a small cloak of flaming darkness flooding around the damn thing. Sebastien and Oksana were right. If you get too close to this thing it may attempt a risky attack to spear you with a high speed darkness tentacle. You do wonder what to say to the creature however...
>>27891441"It's been a while brooklyn. Or did your name change?."
>>27891441"Good afternoon. Nice to see you being civil for once.You at all interested in chatting or are we a bit beyond that? I did look for you by the way, but you were already gone."
>>27891441I think we need to talk. I honestly pains me to see you used like this. I wanted to bury you properly, but when I came back you were already taken. Can you understand me?
>>27890833>“So you hear that the Princess escaped?”>“Don’t get your hopes up. I heard she was a weakling unlike her mother.”I'M SURE NOBODY WE KNOW MATCHES THAT DESCRIPTIONNOPETOTALLY INNOCENT BAR CHATTERCOMPLETELY IRRELEVANT TO OUR LIFEYES INDEED
>>27891441"Body System login: personal ID: ifbodystolen, Password: bodypassword, Initiated program: Foreign influence purge. Operation initiate code: Willprobablynothappen."
“Hey Brooklyn! It’s been a while! Did your name change at all since we last saw each other?!” you ask it. Brooklyn-Draugr just remains in the chair, looking up at you with the shadow flames flickering across it’s body. “Here you are sir!” a barmaid says putting down a mug of water on the table in front of Brooklyn-Draugr before moving on. “It’s nice to see that you’re actually being civil here. I tried to look for you but... somebody had already taken you away by the time I got back.” you tell Brooklyn-Draugr. “You at all interested in chatting or are we a bit beyond that?” Brooklyn-Draugr just continues to look up at you with that damn monoeye cloth wrapped around it’s eyes. “Can you understand me at all?” you then ask the Brooklyn-Draugr about 30 seconds later of just awkward staring. Out from one of the flames, you can see what appears to be a darkness tentacle manifesting from Brooklyn-Draugr. The tentacle wraps itself around the mug, carefully scooping it up and then lifting it up into the air. Then with a slow squeeze it begins applying pressure until the mug finally breaks, spilling beer all over the table. Brooklyn-Draugr continues to crush the glass piece in the tentacle before finally letting go, the remaining pieces of glass looking more like sand than actual glass, all while looking at you with that red eye. ...You’re pretty sure he can understand you, and what he just did was a message."...But that was some of the good Beer..." you hear Brodin behind you whimpering
>>27891745"Well, I hope you can forgive me in time then. Stay safe"back to the others."So... is there a way to permanently kill it without having to find and kill it's owner?"
>>27891745Pull out our tea stuff and whip up a pot of tea. Stare Brooklyn-Draugr right in its eye while we do it.If there is anything of us left in Brooklyn-Draugr than it will drink that tea and make pleasant conversation. Because that's what you do when someone offers you a nice cup of tea.
>>27891745"Brooklyn-body person, no, i did not kill or seduce our uncle, sister, or our dnd pals, and no, i did not wreck the house and destroyed our precious tea set."
>>27891807Damn straight! That the difference between us and him. While he destroys bad beer, we create good tea! It's the ultimate expression on Yin and Yang and in the end it's why it is impossible for him to ever win! The sad thing is, he will never be able to understand what he lost..
>>27891858can we use aura sight perhaps we can at least check if your aura is the same as its or any other weird shenanigans.like the tea idea however.
>>27891312If this doesn't have anything to do with the queens why was our body even taken in the first place. This Daugr seems like a big deal just to stop one succubus when we've already gotten others turned by the queens.
“See! You’re just like me in a way! I also destroy bad beer too!” you reply. “Then you’re an enemy of man!” Brodin shouts out in back. “See, I know you! What you want is some tea!” you say reaching into your rear pockets for your tea ration. You don’t have a tea set on you, so you’re forced to use your shitty soligram cups. You pour up some hot water using your water control before adding in the tea leaves and mixing it up with your darkness tentacles. After you’re done mixing, you then use a darkness tentacle to gently put the cup in front of the Brooklyn-Draugr. You wait for nearly a minute, bated breath all in the meantime, but he doesn’t even seem to react to the tea. You give a defeated sigh. “I guess you are not l-” But when you open your eyes again, you can see that Brooklyn-Draugr is indeed sipping your tea now! “See! That’s progress! We’re now communica-” As soon as Brooklyn-Draugr is finished the tea, he uses a darkness tentacle to crush the cup into dust. “...And we’re back to square one.” you mutter to yourself.
>>27892054Well since talking is no good let's just wait until brodin has sobered a bit before taking the fight somewhere it won't incommode anyone
>>27892054Man. Talk about sore. Did your tea making skills really atrophy that much? If you're unable to make a cup of tea yourself then I'd be glad to make as much as you want, but show some respect for the dishes it's served in! I know you were taught better then that!
>>27892142Proceed to make another cup of tea.
>>27892142Fuckin' zombies. Lets GTFO. See if we can get the draugr somewhere we can off 'em. We are going to need a little breathing room before we go on the hunt.
>>27892054Engage in a debate with it, you are the owner. No, really you are.
>>27892368Prove it by being the superior tea making master to the owner the the eye sasher owner.
>>27892314This is the safest we're likely to get, and while we do this Brodin and Sebastian are getting a chance to get their wits together and think something up. I assume Sebastian is already probing the fucker for info and will let us know when he's got the info on who created and is ordering this thing around. YOU GOT THAT SEBASTIAN?? *Thinking loudly*
>>27892054"I bet that whoever is ordering you around doesn't make tea.Can you even make tea any more, or did they take that away from you too?"
“Man. Talk about sore. Did your tea making skills really atrophy that much? If you're unable to make a cup of tea yourself then I'd be glad to make as much as you want, but show some respect for the dishes it's served in! I know you were taught better then that!” you tell Brooklyn-Draugr.Upon hearing these words, Brooklyn-Draugr forms his own soligram cup and pours some steaming water inside of it. It then reaches inside of it’s cloak, pulling out it’s own set of tea leaves. “Oh! So you think you can make better tea than I can? HA! I doubt that!” you boldly proclaim. Brooklyn-Draugr simply ignores you, calmly using a soligram strainer for the teacup. “...Table, over there.” you say pointing to another table about 30 paces away. You’re curious, but you’re not stupid. Brooklyn-Draugr does exactly what you say, putting the steaming cup of tea over on the table. “Hmph.” you say looking at the tea, giving it a little swirl around in the cup. “Temperature is impressive, as is the mixture. But the most important part is taste. So let’s see how you measure up th- Beauty. Serenity. Sheer Bliss. A single tear rolls down your eye as you feel the flavors of the tea on your tongue. You want this sheer, transcendent moment of bliss to last simply forever. Aether, while good, is just basically a high. This... This is just pure beauty and wisdom contained inside of a cup...
>>27892463Ok fuck this, time to die, "I have achieve nirvana, I don't care about this life anymore"....I don't know what to do anymore....
>>27892463"Hmm, good. If you can make this tea why are you even bothering with this whole thing?"
>>27892463A tear of pure bliss slides down my cheek. Ah, Brooklyn, Brooklyn, Brooklyn. How could you waste such skills in the service of Despair? That's it! We're taking you back with us. I can't believe that someone that can brew a cup like that is truly beyond help!Mission to drink the ultimate tea... Success!
>>27892463Now let's GTFO
>>27892463"And you are wasting your time trying to kill me? You realise that once I am dead, you will cease to be as well. And you have so many teas yet to sample. I propose that you seek the furtherance of your art and leave me in peace. Because, obviously whoever brought you into being cares not for tea." Ain't gonna work, but what the fuck, why not.
>>27892463OMG, have you even tasted your own tea?! Try it! (Roll to awaken his dormant soul (for tea))
“...I have experience nirvana... I have no regrets left in my life...” you mutter as you finish the tea. A massive jolt of pain can be felt in your mind for a split second, ruining your awareness into a higher reality. (“Focus Brooklyn!”) Sebastien snaps at you. "And you are wasting your time trying to kill me? You realise that once I am dead, you will cease to be as well. And you have so many teas yet to sample. I propose that you seek the furtherance of your art and leave me in peace. Because, obviously whoever brought you into being cares not for tea." you say trying to appeal to the creature, using a darkness tentacle to return the cup of tea back to it. “So come back with us Brooklyn, that way we can spend the day simply drinking tea to our hearts content!” Brooklyn-Draugr takes the glass from your darkness tentacle with his own... before crushing it into a almost sand like texture. “...I tried.” you say giving a defeated sigh. (“Brooklyn, I’ve been trying to read that... thing’s mind. The only thing it seems to care about is you. As in literally that is the only thing it is thinking of.”) Sebastien says. (“I did however get other gleams from it’s mind. It’s tracking you with a belonging from your old house in Fort Hope. That’s how it located you the first time and that’s how it tracked you here. It also took a lot of damage back in the Laminian village, and if it fought us here and now, it would most likely lose in the resulting bar brawl.”)(Time for me to go to bed now. I'll be continuing this thread tomorrow after class... which is about 13 hours from this post)
>>27892743Alright. Goodnight man and welcome back! ... Now I just have to decide if I could possible bare to destroy a creature that makes such wonderful tea.. I am so conflicted..
>>27892054Ok, so we need some rope and a Everflowing Teapot. We already have a wizard, now we just need some gold.
>>27892743Start a brawl, get in the zone, and COUNTER everything thing he does, Light to dark. dark to light. Space vs space moves. EVERYTHING. Try to capture if things go well. We got friends and allies to compensate for his superior use of our skills. Aim to remove the eye cover to see if it matters.
Bump post before I head to bed.
>>27893226It seems unwise to be the instigator with pride demons right there, just saying.
before we instigate anything or run off, we should probably promise to our corpse that we will give it a really nice burial, or at the very least expect it to give us one if things go that way
Folks.What's one of the larger regrets Brooklyn had and people keep teasing him about?dying a virgin
>>27895977but would it be losing his virginity if its technically masturbation? please don't answer that, I'm a terrible person
>>27895977Stop pushing your necrophilia fetish
>>27896331would it be necrophilia or masturbation if he decided to go after his draugr now?
>>27896423Draugr is an undead: NecrophiliaWhile Draugr is technically brooklyn body they aren't the same entities anymore, rather than masturbation it would be "self-cest" instead of masturbation
>>27896331Necrophilia is dead things. Undead aren't dead, they're undead. He's his own person, with his own hopes and dreams (of brutally murdering us) and not just an object, you prejudiced pig.
I shouldn't be surprised to see this kid of debate >>.Should be back hope in about an hour and a half
>>27897791I'm pretty sure it's just troll trolling troll
>>27897850yup, we are lesbian anyway so its not happening. Plus, we STILL haven't seduced the twins yet.
Maybe the Draugr is just jealous because we're rolling in poon while he's stuck being a smelly undead virgin.
>>27897791>>27898112We'll still attempt to waifu anything, up to and including our own decaying opposite gender corpse, though.Look at the poor us. It just wanted to get laid! We can totally understand.I bet Mina would work well, we're weak vs her. In bed.
>>27898112We seduced the twins, the only reason we haven't slept with them was we haven't had the time. To be honest, we haven't gotten up to anything with Amanda or Mina for a while either. We still make game night with our friends though.Man, we are shit at being a succubus.
Yeah, well, we never asked for tits.
After that last bit, you make your way back to the table and sit down. “Yea... This isn’t going anywhere.” you say to the group. “Why would that Draugr want to kill Brooklyn Sir Brodin?” Stacy asks him. “Come on now... No need ta be formal.” Brodin says with a slight slur of his words. “As for the reason... Undead being undead. Some are simply like Old World machines in that they simply will not stop. The zombies that are capable of intelligence yet still follow orders are considered the most dangerous. If it was a Draugr, like the kind that keeps coming back, then it would just be... a huge pain in the ass.” “Do you know how to kill it?” you ask Brodin. “Now you can’t kill somethin’ already dead Black Mushroom...” Brodin says as he finishes another mug of beer. You just give a sigh. “You know what I mean.” “Oh that’s simple. Use a spirit or death spell to make sure it doesn’t come back is all.” Brodin replies. “Just hope the owner is strong enough to do somethin’ like nullify is all.” “OK, if we’re going to counter him, first things first. We’ll need to start a brawl in order to get anything done. It will be a double edged sword yes, but seeing how there’s seven of us and one of him, we’d be able to spread out more in the carnage at least.” you say. “Issue is whenever we escape or fight him, there will be the issue of that damn thing coming back to try and kill us all again.” Sebastien says. “He’s using a tracking spell to pinpoint you, using a piece of your old dress from your old house.” “Also black mushroom, your male self is a real asshole...” Brodin says sipping his beer.
>>27898982I wasn't that bad before I was a woman!
>>27898982He disrespected the tea. He clearly has nothing to do with me.
Okay, so the people who could conceivably kill him are:Brodin or Wilhelmina (who isn't here).
>>27899059YupAlso any other plans? Like how to start the bar brawl, battle plans, or other things.
>>27899139Hmm. Use suggestion to start the brawl. Then pile on, and wear him down. In particular, he's based on us so he should be pretty shitty in melee. Once he's hurt a bit and has turned on his darkness form we hit him with our strongest light spell for massive damage. Then Brodin perma kills him.
>>27899139We have the two Pride Demons with Two Succubi Maids and a group of Wrath demons. If they can can be led to fight each other or the draugr, we would at least have cover to go to work on it. Perhaps convince the Wrath demons that someone insulted their mothers or have one of them spill their drinks?
>>27899139I'm not sure we want to use suggestion with the demon here... maybe we could use a darkness tentacle to throw a beer at them, the draugr is the only one that has shown to use it and it has the same aether signature as us.
>>27899281Yeah, chucking a beer at the pride demons would probably be the best way to move forward.
>>27899139Simple to start a fight. Use suggestion on the wrath demons that the draugr called them wimpy little mamas boys that couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag.
>>27898982>your male selfI am surprised Amanda or Stacy, or whoever doesn't know about Brooklyn's past, didn't comment on this.Probably don't have the time.
[1/2]“...Katlin, Stacy. That Draugr as a similar aether signature as I do right?” you ask.“As far as we can see, yes.” Katlin replies.OK then. Since that thing is based off of you, it should therefore only have melee skills that are a little better than your own, and with nearly five Ashuran Wrath demons nearby...(“You’re actually going to do that aren’t you?”) Sebastien asks while he calmly reaches for his revolver under his duster.Yes I am.Using a darkness tentacle, you wrap around and crush a beer mug in the exact same fashion as your Draugr-self did.“Hey. HEY! WHAT THE FUCK!?” the Wrath demon says standing up holding the handle of his beer. “ALRIGHT!? WHICH ONE OF YOU ASSHOLES HAVE A DEATH WISH!?”“O-Over there! That dark guy sitting the corner over there was crushing cups for the past while now!” A nervous mortal sitting nearby immediately speaks out.“Oh... Is that that case...” the Wrath Demon says. You can nearly see the vein popping in his head as he gets up along with his four other friends.“Oh... This is going to be messy...” Ada says reaching for her knife.“So... You think crushing glasses are so much fun that you had to go do it with mugs belonging to others huh!?” The Wrath demon says standing over Brooklyn-Draugr.Brooklyn-Draugr only continues to stare at you the entire time, but you can see that bandage wrapped weapon of his inch slightly closer to him with darkness tentacles.“Brooklyn, the Pride Demon’s...” Stacy warns you.
[2/2]Taking a quick glance over at the Pride Demons, you can see that they’re not busy shooing off the arm-ladies. Both the Pride Demons and the maids watching the situation like a hawk.“Oh... You’re going to just ignore us? This that it?” The Wrath Demon asks Brooklyn-Draugr, who still doesn’t move from the spot. Losing his temper, the Wrath Demon brings his fist down on the table. “ANSWER ME D-”It’s at this time the Wrath’s demon hand is impaled by a spike of darkness that shoots up from the table. All of the Wrath demons make an immediate jump back while Brooklyn-Draugr grabs his weapon. Rather than moving it around and pointing it at the Wrath demons, he takes the weapon and points the glowing purple tip directly at you.You immediately duck and cover upon seeing this. “OH CR-”The purple blast of energy flies out of Brooklyn-Draugr’s weapon, shooting directly over your head and impacting the fireplace that was in your path. The entire wall collaspes as burning pieces of wood begin to spray all over the place, catching quite a bit of Wolf’s fur on fire.It’s then that all hell breaks loose. You’re not sure if it was the man punching the fat guy at the bar front, or the card player who lost everything takes out his knife, but judging from the sound of breaking wood and fists impacting against others, it sounds as if there’s a full fledged bar brawl going on.
>>27899689Didn't we practice passing off as a mortal? Maybe we should do that and let our friend handle this. We wouldn't want them to know there two people with the same aether in the room.
>>27899734You could very well do that yes.
>>27899689Keep an eye on the maid succubi, try to subtly sabotage the zombies fight against the wrath demons.
>>27899734Actually, the Draugr DID just try to kill us. And probably will continue to. We could pass it off as self-defense and attempt to hurt it. Keep in mind we want to minimize deaths/permanent injuries here.So, I see three choices here: Run (hiding wont work while he's TRACKING US WITH OUR DRESS), attempt to take him down, or possibly run to the church where our Dad is supposed to be (two birds with one stone).
>>27899689>>27899907So, with that in mind, use light magic in an attempt to destroy our dress/damage the Draugr, keep the hell out of the brawl, and wait for consensus.
>>27899907The problem is that it did attempt to kill us, two people in the same room with the same aether/aura fighting is suspicious no matter how you put it.
>>27899907The Okarian Library is also warded and has a lot of protection within it as well.
>>27899965The Library would be a good idea, although it'd help to inform them about the Draugr first.On the flip side of things, it would draw a LOT of attention to us (not that this wont ANYWAYS).
>>27899689Get some solidgram backup in here, keep an eye on our evil twin and look for an opening to get Brodin in there to permadead that thing! No need to be too flashy while other people are willing to attack the Draugr for us.
How about incapacitating it?
>>27899982I'll elaborate on this. Draugr are hard to make, which means quite a bit of attention. On the plus side, it can be fobbed off as an attack, but if we play a major role in it's takedown (which will most-likely will), >>27900078Killing it will incap it, killing it with sufficiently high Necromancy/Death Magic (like our study buddy might have) could stop it.
>>27900102Sorry, didn't finish my first bit of this: but if we play a major role in it's takedown (which will most-likely will), Greed Demons will be VERY interested in us, and our cover could be blown.So we need to tread VERY carefully, both with how we deal with the Draugr (going to the Church where dad could be vs. the Library) and how we deal with this right now (the are Pride Demons in the barroom, watching).
>>27900102>like our study buddy might haveAh, I forgot about our "Reformed Necromancer" friend in the study circle. She would most definitely probably maybe be able to help, good idea.
>>27900153One of our handcaps being avoiding having the spotlight on us. Greed demons should be left confused. Another great reason to destroy the dress.
[1/3]“OH WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING!? WHY ARE WE IN ANOTHER FIGHT FOR OUR LIVES!?” Amanda yells from behind the table. “Relax. Judging from how things are going, we won’t need to interfere that much.” Sebastien says. “That... thing is powerful, but inside of an area like this, it isn’t able to bring out it’s full potential.” “Yea there ya go. Just let someone else handle it.” Brodin says as his darkness tentacles beings some more beer too him, many of his tentacles now positioned at sloppy or crooked angles. “WHY YOU L-” The Wrath demon who got one his hands stabbed is met by Brooklyn-Draugr swinging his halberd directly at Wrath Demon. The Wrath demon raises up his three right hands to try and intercept the blow, but the halberd that Brooklyn-Draugr has seems to explode upon hitting the Wrath Demon, sending him soaring out of the wall of the bar and out into the street.“Weapons out boys! Looks like we got ourselves a rowdy one!” a Wrath demon remaining in the group says, pulling out what appears to be six swords.The remaining Wrath demons pull out various sorts of bladed weapons, while some of them just appear to have glowing hands as they get into a form.“What is the meaning of all this!? I demand that you cease this disruption at once!” A Pride Demon in blue armour says walking in amidst of the chaos, who are mortal and sober enough immediately parting way for him. “...Tammy why are they fight?” A Pride Demon with glasses ask as he watches the group of Wrath Demons and Brooklyn-Draugr.
[2/3] The maid seems to close her eyes for a few seconds before opening them again. “The Wrath demons are angry that this enlightened man destroyed some of their drinks. The man on the other hand seems to have a singular focus of hatred towards some woman named ‘Brooklyn’.” “Great another block of property damage caused by a crime of passion.” the glasses wearing Pride Demon sighs as he simply shakes his head. “Good work Tammy.” “As you command Sir Uluck.” The Succubus replies. “...Ayarian.” Sebastien replies. Great. Like you needed that. “I demand that you cease this activity at once Ashurans!” the blue armoured Pride demon says strolling ahead of everyone else says, seeming to tower over the Wrath demons. “Stay the hell out of this Noble boy! This is our matter!” The wrath demon whose fists are glowing replies. “Stay ou-!? This is the property of the Great Ch-” The Wrath Demon’s only reply to the Pride Demon is a jumping uppercut right onto his jaw while he is talking, sending the enter two meters of the Pride Demon sailing into the air and crashing into a table.
[3/3] Meanwhile the other remaining Wrath Demons converge on Brooklyn-Draugr. Brooklyn-Draugr makes a field of spikes appear on the floor directly below some of the Wrath demons, managing to hit and impale a few, but the Wrath demons manage to make it so the hits are non-lethal. One of the Wrath demons actually break through the darkness spikes, ripping through it as if it were cheap cloth before making an X slash and a cross slash with his swords at the same time. Brooklyn-Draugr raises his weapon to block, managing to stop the X-Slash but the two other swords seeming to make a solid impact into his flesh at the side of his arms. The Wrath demons grits his teeth as he tries to apply more pressure, but Brooklyn-Draugr holds firm. “...You know... Looking at it from this angle, you did appear rather handsome as a man Brooklyn.” Amanda says complimenting you.Huh... The three Wrath demons appear to be holding themselves rather well actually.
>>27900456So stay and watch and maybe lie or half truth our way out or run for it?
>>27900456Why, thank you Amanda. I worked out! *munch some popcorn*
>>27900456Shiiiiiiiit, with that Ayarian...we can't fight here. Use an exploding solidigram to destroy the remains of the dress, then leave.
>>27900456"Thank you Amanda. Ada, can you tip the odds in the Wrath's favor without getting caught?"
>>27900565Ayarians can sense our surface thoughts with ease, and thus see through our lies easily. Mostly, we're hoping we aren't interesting enough for the Pride Demon to notice. Currently, that is the case.
>>27900569We need Brodin here to try and land the finishing blow. He can't even get in trouble cause, immunity.
Is usurping control of our body an option we've explored or is it unlikely to work?
>>27900591So lets fill our head with only thoughts that are innocent and true. "Oh god, why is he trying to kill me?" "I never asked for this""The teaaaaaaa""I am going to be so late with work tonight....""Wow, that guy is handsome!"
>>27900646I keep voting to attack the headband but that has yet to come to pass.
>>27900456I think we overstayed our welcome... time to leave.
>>27900715If Brodin doesn't finish it off we've completely wasted our time. We may not have this opportunity again.
>>27900715Let's stay awhile and listen!
>>27900649DOESN'T WORK, it's been explained before.
>>27900456So, how about an inconspicuous exploding solidigram (or group of them) that An-Hero the dress? This allows us time to decide the battlefield in our favour (getting the help of our study-buddy possibly and/or dad if either of them care) and keep away from the Pride Demons.We might also be able to send the Draugr a note (drop it in their vicinity to protect the messenger and give the Draugr a place we can ambush it, even with it's cunning).
>>27899677Is it wrong to imagine Wrath demons as sounding like The Macho Man Randy Savage?
>>27901122Possibly it's wrong to think of that in regards to our Philosophy disciple (yes, we have an Ashuran wrath demon focused on Philosophical debate as part of our party).
[1/3] “Thank you Amanda. I did work out when I could after all.” you reply while stealing some popcorn from a nearby fallen bowl. You... Didn’t actually work out. Rather you were a healthy weight due to money concerns for food... The Wrath demon that was attacking Brooklyn-Draugr immediately then jumps back to avoid two darkness lances that came from behind Brooklyn-Draugr. You’re amazed the Wrath Demon manages to parry them due to the sheer speed, but what he doesn’t dodge is when Brooklyn-Draugr points his weapon towards the Wrath Demon in midair and fires once again. The Wrath Demon puts all of his blades at the point of impact, dark energy sending him up into the ceiling before an explosion rips through the area. Several people in bathtubs then come screaming down below, water flooding the area and splashing onto the floor. “...Katlin... I got an idea and I need you to pull it off.” Sebastien says as he grabs two nearby lanterns with psychic power and pulls them towards him. “Alright Mr. Sebastien, just tell me when.” Katlin replies, gripping the table in readiness. “Why you insignificant worm!” the Pride demon who was knocked down says, rubbing his jaw. He holds out his hand, freezing the sudden splash of water that washes over the Wrath demon’s legs. The Wrath Demon tries to rip himself free, but is then punches directly across the face by the Pride Demon with a gauntlet nearly as big as his head. Ice shards fly out from the impact of the punch, which was so great that the Wrath demon is broken free of the ice impacts the wall of the establishment. The Wrath demon wipes his mouth, looking up at the Pride Demon with a smile. “You have a pretty good straight for someone who can’t even change his own clothing.” “And I would not expect a barbarian to know about class. Now we have some questions we’d like you to answer.” The Pride Demon says cracking his knuckles.
[2/3] “Oh yea? I have one too. Stupiddemonsayswha.” The Wrath Demon says while still within the wall. “Wha-” Taking advantage of the split second hesitation, the Wrath demon seems to explode out of the wall and land six punches directly onto the Pride Demon. Very noise sounds akin to a thunderclap as the air is violently displaced, hurling the Pride Demon directly through the bar front and crashing into the booze barrels. “That... That was perfectly good beer...” Brodin says with a tear from his eyes. The Pride Demon with glasses just sighs and shakes his head. “Tammy, do me a favor and help Chill out with this will you?” “Of course Sir Uluck.” The Ayarian says as fallen pieces of weapons and debris around her begin to levitate up, before finally with a point she sends them racing all towards the Wrath Demons. The Wrath demons quickly attempt to parry the materials being thrown at them. A few of the wooden projectiles seem to impact them, but the rest of the metal weapons seem to be parried away. Even Brooklyn-Draugr is forced to take cover behind a table. A fact which the Wrath demon blasted earlier seems to take full advantage of. He throws several of his swords down at the table where Brooklyn-Draugr is taking cover, actually managing to nail one of his limbs down to the floor.
[3/3] Sebastien then springs into action, throwing out the two lanturns from behind cover, sailing in an arc over to where Brooklyn-Draugr is hiding behind. You can hear the lanturns bust behind the cover. “NOW!” Sebastien yells to Katlin. As if on cue, Katlin sends nearly all the fire from the flaming wolf pelts nearby down on the oil soaked area near Brooklyn-Draugr, instantly seeming to ignite the area. “Well that certainly seems to take care of things.” Ada says taking a bite of popcorn. “No, that just slows it down. It should get rid of the dress fragment at the very least.” Sebastien says. “I don’t want this bastard tracking us where we sleep anyways.” “My... My beer...” Brodin says reaching out to the wrecked barrels which are spraying gallons of alcohol beverage onto the floor. Hm... If you want, you could try to make an escape right now...
>>27901224"Sebastien, thank you for that. I think I'll try to work out some non-magical solutions more often, it could work pretty well. Now lets all get out of here before one of us gets hurt, or the Pride demons decide they want to arrest everyone from existing."
>>27901224Does it look like Brodin will have a chance to "kill" it?"Brodin, keep it together man. You see that undead monstrosity over there? That beer was destroyed because of that thing! It's wrecked this tavern, and god knows how many more Inns it will wreck in the future. It is a true enemy to all beer drinkers everywhere! Too bad there's nothing we can to to stop it. *shake head sadly* Let's get out of here Brodin. I just hope it doesn't destroy every tavern in this city..."
>>27901286*for existing, damnit...>>27901316Sand would really be the judge of that, but...based on it's durability, and the fact that Brodin doesn't have high-tier Death Magic...probably not permanently.
>>27901224Take a moment to see if burning its possessions did anything to how it's owner is controlling it. If it is still hostile, blow up the head then get out of here.
If Brodin weren't smashed I would vote to try to end it.As it is, we should at least have enough time before it reforms to be able to retreat, regroup, and prepare to properly deal with it.
>>27901370Keep in mind that any more direct fighting will most likely draw a LOT of unwanted attention from the Pride demons. Also, the only person with bullets is Sebastien, and I don't think he's stupid enough to start something and draw that attention to himself, especially with his goals regarding Arcticus and relationship with Pride Demons in general.
"Sebastien, thank you for that. I think I'll try to work out some non-magical solutions more often, it could work pretty well. Now lets all get out of here before one of us gets hurt, or the Pride demons decide they want to arrest everyone from existing." you reply. You want to try and take out the Draugr, but with Brodin smashed you doubt you can get any form of success here. “My beer...” Brodin says looking at the scene in tears. “Come on Brodin, you’ll have some time to drink later when we’re not in the middle of a warzone!” Sebastien says as he grabs the hood of Brodin and pulls him up to his feet. In amidst the chaos, you all head out via the hole in the fireplace, Katlin suppressing the fires of the fireplace. Once you’re outside, you all run a good block non-stop until you’re finally away from the area. “Oh god... That was too close...” you say while panting. “Why do events seem to follow us like lightning rods!?” Stacy complains as she rests up against the wall. “I like that things are actually exciting for once.” Katlin replies. “Besides I thought between the two of us you liked to take risks.” “In Courtly Intrigue not total chaos!” Stacy replies.
>>27901787Okay. It'll be down for a while, but it'll be back. What we need to do is plan and prepare for it's return, so the next time it comes knocking we have options other than 'panicked flight' ans 'fear urine'.
>>27901787"Sorry about that."
>>27901787"Not that I want to cut short on a conversation that would likely see me break down in tears about why does all of this keep happening to me, but I think we'd be better having it somewhere else."Time to make ourselves scarce.
>>27901787Stake out the scene, see if you can see where the Draugr goes.
>>27901787Let's go home and plan. Anyone have any tricks to get Brodin sober?
“First things first! We need to head home a- Oh no... If he’s been tracking our movements then he knows the location of the carriages.” you say with a defeated sigh. “That was before I bought ourselves some space. Now come on, our residence is a bit aways from this dreadful place.” Ada says just as you can see some Pride Demon peacekeeping forces run by you. ****** You arrive at your new place. Basically instead of renting some sort of castle or tower out, Ada got an old world building that was still standing and rented out an entire floor of it.“...Isn’t this an overkill amount of rooms?” you ask Ada looking down at the hallway of rooms.“Given how quickly we seem to pick up new allies?” Ada asks you.“Touche.” you reply as you walk down.As you walk down the hallway, you can see Mina poking her head around the corner of a room. “Oh hi Brooklyn!” she says bouncing towards you and giving you a big hug. “You won’t believe what all the rooms are like here!”“Question, did you all get into the Science Lord Wars while you were out.” Wilhelmina asks, catching your eyes almost immediately as she’s dressed in some sort of Eastern oriental dress.
>>27902665Hug Mina back and relax into her arms."Not exactly, my evil zombie male murder clone tried to kill me but I forced it into a bar fight.It's been a long day."
>>27902665"Long story short, we met my immortal undead body that's better than me at everything and wants to kill me."
>>27902665Actually, it was a magical Draugr who wants to kill me and won't stay dead unless killed in a specific fashion. Oh, and it has all my abilities plus a special power boost and will grow more powerful as I do. So, nothing particularly unusual."
>>27902665Nah. We just got caught up in a brawl between a Draugr and a few Wrath Demons. ... The Pride Demons were starting in when we left. We brought back popcorn! How about your day?
Ah... Mina’s hug... You’re so happy to be feeling someone friendly wrapping their arms around you in a friendly embrace."Long story short, we met my immortal undead body that's better than me at everything and wants to kill me." you reply.Wilhelmina and Mina just blankly stare at you. “...What.”“It was... Quite an adventure...” you reply to both of them. “And all the beer was destroyed...” Brodin says sobbing. “Encouraging. Cheer up Mr. Reaper. We were going to have a small celebration about moving in to your new place.” Wilhelmina replies. “A party?” you ask. “Yup! We got food and everything!” Mina replies in a happy tone.
>>27903086"Well, that sounds like fun."Operation (finally) bed the Twins is a go?
>>27903086Time to have some fun, we should take some time to explain what happened in detail when everyone is there though.
>>27903086Sounds like a blast! Don't worry Brodin. We won't let that thing get away with destroying all that beer. We'll help you take it down permanently so that this never happens again. Now let's try to enjoy the party!
>>27903194Amanda is going to want in on that. She's a bit possessive.
After all of the bullshit that you went through today, you figure a good party is in order to help you calm down! “Sounds like a blast! Don't worry Brodin. We won't let that thing get away with destroying all that beer. We'll help you take it down permanently so that this never happens again. Now let's try to enjoy the party!” you say to the group in front of you. “YEA!” they all reply in unison. “...It will never be drank...” Brodin says still lamenting. ****** “Ugh... My head...” You mutter to yourself as you sit up from off of the bed. You had a pretty wild party last night, and after a large amount of booze, you honestly cannot remember a lot of things clearly anymore. You take a look down at yourself, noticing that you’re in the nude. This wouldn’t surprise you as much, at least not as much as the naked male elf lying in bed next to you. “Hmmm...” Uilosdir gives a satisfied moan as he stretches. “Good morning~.” Your heart skips a beat as you see the naked elf down next to you. “...Say... We didn’t... Do it last night... did we?” “Yes~.” Uilosdir says happily with a nod. “I mean... We didn’t do the full horizontal tango... Right?” you ask. “Yes.” Uilosdir says happily nodding. “It was a magical.” “THIS ISN’T HHHAAAPPPEEENNNNNII-”******“NNNNNGGGG!” you yell out loud as you wake up in your bed. You don’t hesitate a millisecond, throwing off your covers to verify that you’re the only one in bed. After spending a few worried seconds, you can see that you are indeed the only one in bed.“Oh god...” you say giving a massive sigh of relief. It is then you notice something in your arms. A rather long pillow that is depicting the picture of a rather muscular gentleman in overalls who is unzipping them in a suggestive manner.“Mmm.... Brooklyn? Have you seen my Yarinaka pillow?” Wilhelmina asks knocking on your door.
>>27903704Why do you have a Yarinaka pillow? And why is it in my bed? Wait. IS this my bed?
>>27903704"Wilhelmina, why do you have a pillow with whatever this is on it?On second thought, stupid question. What time is it?"
>>27903704>Yarinaka"Yaranaika".... try to wake up again.
>>27903704nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooopeI am done. Sorry, but I could forgive the dragging on with social stuff in the town, we had a fair bit to do there.But there's more sidestory shenanigan shit than actual interesting things in the game. Its like a shitty anime you keep watching because all you really want to see are the few cool scenes.Sorry Sandact, been with you since thread 1 but this is where I get off. Hope you enjoy running teaparties, dressup and tea quest, because its gone from those being amusing sidestories, to basically the majority of your updates.
>>27903845Brooklyn-Draugr is side story? Huh.Oh well, have fun at the next stop.
>>27903845Did you notice the bit where most of the thread was about 'Jesus Christ, we are being hunted by an immortal asshole tea-destroying undead'?
>>27903845I don't mind as much, but I would prefer he cut down on nonsensical OP's.>>27903194Looks like that's going to wait I guess. We should try to get that done this thread if possible though.
>>27903704Unzip pajama in a provocative matter."Is that the one you're looking for?"
>>27903928And suddenly we stop for partytime because its not like we have anything else to do.>>27903932Yeah, I skip that shit aswell, but I don't mind it, its just not my thing.>>27903926No, playing dressup with nobles, doing a party while being chased by an immortal killing machine stronger than us, constantly whining about tea (There's a hobby, and then there's unrealistic level of obsession to the point where its so stupid it draws the rest of the quest down with it), pajama parties with the queens. I'm not sure if its just nostalgia, but I remember the quest at the beginning being less about stupid shit like this.Your smut postings aswell didn't really help your credibility as a serious quest writer either, but thats just my opinion.Anyway, I'll stop whining now. Hope you guys can atleast get some enjoyment out of it I suppose.
“...Why do you have this type of pillow on my bed... Wait is this even my bed?” you call out to Wilhelmina. “That’s where we put your belongings.” Wilhelmina replies. “Inquiry, may I have my pillow back.” You drop the pillow to let it fall down against the bed. “Wilhelmina, what time is it?” “About 9:30 AM in the morning.” Wilhelmina replies. “The two reporter Gemelli are also here to see you in the living room area.” “How did they find us!?” you ask. “They ‘asked’ a few of the people down at the caravan area.” Wilhelmina replies. “Wonderful...” you say with a sigh.(And that'll be it for today as my internet is bugging out and I can't think very much anymore. As usual I'll take any sort of questions regarding stuff for the rest of this thread, assuming my internet stops being a dick)
>>27903998Don't you mean manner anon? Otherwise I agree with this.
>>27904013>implying I have any credibility as a writer of any sort.I just mainly write about things as I enjoy them. I did not begin this quest by expecting to be a good writer or hell I'm not sure if I'm even a terrible one. I just do it mainly because I enjoy writing and seeing others also being happy with my work.Secondly, Sebastien ruined the main method for the Draugr to be chasing after us. Without some lead he'll have some trouble finding us again. Probably could've been clarifed more yes, but the injuries he would've took at the 4-5 Wrath demons should've been enough for it to be knocked out long enough to recover. I thought that was self-evident, so that's why I made Brooklyn agree to the party.I'll give you the tea thing.Only thing I can really say is that stories and tones change over time. If you don't like it, that's fine. No one is putting a gun to your head and forcing you to read this quest. This isn't in a pouting/bitching manner from me, but rather something I sincerely mean and wish the best for you.
And to clarify an issue that came up in the chat.Brooklyn-Draugr isn't invincible. He isn't meant to be something like nemesis which you run away from all the time since you have no clear chance at beating him. Yes he probably could beat Brooklyn or any of his team 1v1, but as a squad taking time down should be difficult but not impossible. The issue was that it just tracked you and caught you with your pants down. The main problem will be trying to kill him for good.
>>27904337That's pretty much how I saw it, anyway.
>>27904337Am I going to be able to make namek joke about the fact that it's going to take forever to get rid of it?
>>27904369Only if it actually takes forever, otherwise it's just stupid.
>>27904369I will spoil that it's most likely the closest thing to a rival Brooklyn will have.I mean hell how obvious would you be able to get being a more powerful evil twin.
>>27904337Thanks for the run! I like the new bad guy.
>>27904451Well, I'm glad that we don't have to deal with a Miyian version of that. The draugr would basically be spamming ICBMs with countermeasures against any anti-missile system we come up with.
>>27904451I still think it's a shame that such tea making skills are being wasted in the service of evil. Is there any chance of ever freeing him and making him part of our team?
Oh yea, DP for this session.Managing to set things up with Arum and then run from Brooklyn-Draugr twice, I'd say you earned 75 DP this session.
>>27903821This is the greatest thing I have seen today.
wondering what other implications are their from sharing an aether signature nature? like would the degur be able to effect us in non direct means or stuff would ocationaly spill over from one entity to the other.Wondering if it would have demonic traits as well . if we start hearing rumors of an incubus i think we should start running. Also we should have asked using the fate ritual why someone wanted to create a degur of us.
>>27909588Some things do spill over. For example, that dream you had involving it. It was a very dramatic time for Brooklyn-Draugr, being just created and all. Brooklyn isn't sure what this would mean for her due to the connection, but asking some people would know about it (such as Madison or Wilhelmina) would help. Draugr's are rare enough, and Brooklyn's version of it being a special case makes things even more iffy.
>>27909858Just wanted to say something in regards to the Draugr. I suggested both after the dream and Erika's vision that we should talk to the queens. I don't think anyone wanted to (I was voted down). This is what happens when you ignore something the QM has been forshadowing for a while now.Also, for those wondering about how interesting the quest will be (how much stuff happening, combat, that sort of thing vs. slice of life), I've talked to Sand, and mainly he wants it to be not as bogged down in Fort Hope as it was (so stuff will be happening at a decent rate), but apparently Slice-of-Life is a part of this quest that will be staying(not something I dislike, not something I'm ultra gung-ho about).So expect the last 1-3 threads to be a good benchmark of things.
>>27910131Hm, fair assessment I guess. We've made good progress in the last three or so.>some givexpOh catchpa
>>27910131i also wanted to investigate the vision also and who was behind the prospector who gave us the tip.think it was ignored do to other stuff pooping up and the fact that people forget stuff over the week.
