Welcome ladies and gentlemen to another edition of Succubus Lord Quest! Last time on Succubus Lord Quest, we decided that to first spend some time, we ought to take the twins out for a lovely lunch dinner, which was somewhat spoiled by Brooklyn’s sister showing up. After which we decided to see if there were any way to get rid of Brooklyn-Draugr (The answer being yes, but not that easily). Lastly, we decided to see if we could find the current Belkarian Leader after picking up a temporary follower that is Nalika’s mother, Shiva. We last left off when we were going to see one of the Belkarian owners of the fighters guild in order to see where the current Belkarian Leader, Fredika, is!https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Um4gk-JN4CHFJJdQrJjfbzg6Q8FHcmfxP8sRDhaf-FI
As you climb up the many upon many flights of stairs from within the stadium of the fighters guild, you eventually reach the top of the staircase. The top floor appears to be a more proper version of the bottom floor. Full of rather impressive relics on display alongside vivid images of brave warriors using them. Even a few heads from beasts such as a Hydra and a dragon. “...I thought Hydra heads couldn’t be put on display like that.” you say admiring one of the heads as you pass by. “Stasis spell I’d imagine.” Wilhelmina replies as you continue the walk down the hall. As you approach the area where the glass overlook of the arena should be, you are stopped by what appears to be both a Wrath Demon and a Belkarian carrying spears and both in armour. “I’m sorry ma’am. This area is off limits unless you have a reason to be here.” The male Wrath demon says. “The nearest washroom is a floor down in case you’re about to ask that as well.” The Belkarian then adds.
>>28253659"Actually no you were just what I was looking for, someone to stop the mother from a friend. She's currently cleaning the floor with everyone downstairs."
[1/2] "Actually no you were just what I was looking for, someone to stop the mother from a friend. She's currently cleaning the floor with everyone downstairs." you reply to the guards. “...What?” The Wrath demon replies as he heads over to peer out the window down to the surface nearby, his face going pale as he sees down below. “...Purple you’d best have a look at this.” “Broli I swear if this is for something trival...” Purple gives a sigh as she walks over to the platform, before getting the same expression on her face. Looking down the stairs you can see the fighting ring has already racked up a comedically high stack of ruined bodies that lie all around the ring of the arena. Another Succubi who is in the area is stabbing at Shiva with a mana shield up with spear thrusts that are seemingly just a blur with electric crackles in the air. Shiva however appears to be dodging them all nonchalantly and seemingly without much effort. Pretty much everyone in your own group goes wide eyed and pale faced, except for Nalika and Wilhelmina who you can never tell anywho. “That’s... that’s the Battle Mage that beat me a while back...” Mina admits. “Stunned. She always makes fun of me for being to slow.” Wilhelmina adds. “She’s just showing off.” Nalika replies. “...Purple, we got to work to do.” The Wrath demon says as he rushes away from the window. “B-Broli hey! You can just abandon your post like that!” Purple says as she begins to rush down the stairs.
[2/2] “Hey you! YOU! You just can’t abandon your posts like that!” Two Pride Demon’s dressed in a combination of Fighter Guild and noble house colours say while rushing by you. “...That was surprising easy.” Alex comments. “Then let’s seize the chance then, shall we?” you ask walking over to the doors of the suite nearby and throwing them open. In the skybox that is set up above, you can see that this is far more like a room made for one to conduct business and entertain guests with some plants (Exotic in a place in eternal winter), a large dinner table, luxary fireplace, and large open view to down below with one sided glass. The current Belkarian seems not to even notice you enter the door, the only thing visiable is the back of her green hair and cape with some sort of logo on the back. “...What on Earth brings a demon like that here?” the Belkarian asks as she watches the match down below.
>>28254339"It's a coincidence really though she's was a surprisingly willing diversion. My name is Brooklyn and I'm looking into the whereabout of Fredika Zombolt on the behalf of a friend."Question sandact, can listening spell detect hidden suggestion message or the fact that we used suggestion at all?
>>28254339I forgot what we're doing here, but, bump.
>>28254339Introduce self politely. This may involve FLEXING.
>>28254566We're trying to get the current Belkarian leader out of her broken-oath depression.>>28254581>Brooklyn>Flexing>In front of the Belkarian leaderWe don't really lift, you know...
>>28254655Then we flex Mina.
"It's a coincidence really though she's was a surprisingly willing diversion.” you reply. “...Wait how did yo-... Oh there are my guards.” the Belkarian replies. “You mean were you guards.” Nalika replies. “My name is Brooklyn and I'm looking into the whereabout of Fredika Zombolt on the behalf of a friend." you reply.“...Fredika? What do you want with her?” the Belkarian asks turning around. Looking at her you can see that she’s in what can be said as a stunningly regal attire composed of an extremely fine naval uniform, complete with both pauldrons and badges pinned to her chest. Hanging by the side of her uniform on her belt, you can see what appears to be a rapier which is probably work half the Fort Hope treasury due to it’s rarity. “Ah Mademoiselle Zenga. I did not expect to see you here.” Alex says with a bow and a predatory glimmer in his eye. “By any chance are you free after work today?”“Oh! Alex!” Zenga says giving a small blush on her cheeks, hesitating a little before standing back up straight again. “A-Again! I’m going to have to ask what your business with Lady Fredika is!”
>>28254787"As I said I'm looking for her on the behalf of a friend, it has to do with her previous vows and a certain someone that love anal."Fuck if I know any other secret way to say purple without saying it... I hope her love of anal wasn't that much of a secret while being obscure enough to not being obvious to the Pride demon please veto if you think this is too horrible
>>28254787Well, sometimes it is nice to have a manwhore around.>>28254863They ALL love that.
>>28254926The whole point is that it's Purple "shameful" secret and we didn't plan before coming here.
>>28254863in fact change "that love anal" to "that won't admit that she love anal." I can't believe I'm writing this
>>28254787I doubt claiming romance would work. Unless we offer Alex up as a whore sacrifice. That or seek her wisdom.
>>28254787We want to cheer her up!
>>28255140Traveling manwhore show?
>>28255174Well I was thinking get her in contact with Purple so she can end her centuries-long depression from not being able to help the queens but we could do that as well.
>>28255294I don't think Zenga=Fredika... Also the broken vow was earth defense, not failing the queens if my memory doesn't fail me
...So is the plan here to pimp out Alex for information? That's the vibe I'm getting and I want to be sure.
>>28255319I don't know, I'm not a fan of the idea.
>>28255365Alex seemed to be a fan of the idea
>>28255401Alex seems to be a fan of everything involving succubus
>>28255401>>28255419Alex never shy about using talents to his advantage.
>>28255466>Alex IS never shy about using HIS talents to his advantage.Gods, how did I write that like a retarded Russian.
>>28255494Because it was a remark a retarded russian would make while talking about his sex life?
>>28255527But what if Alex is a retarded Russian?
[1/2] A small smile creeps across your face. “Why wait? I mean this event isn’t time sensitive. You and Alex can have a little dinner right now if you’d prefer.” “I-I do not think that is proper conduct.” Zenga replies standing up straight. “I may not be a knight, but I pride myself on being Belkarian nobility! I don’t think that such a bribe would be effec-” ****** “So... Where’s Fredika?” you come into the room after a half hour later. “She... She’s downtown at one of the local bars.” Zenga says buttoning her vest back up. “The Red Piss Alehouse.” “Sac Le Blu! Why would someone like Fredika go to such a horrible place!” Alex asks nearly jumping back out of his pants. “Alex has a point. That place is barely fit for beasts, let alone someone like Fredika.” Mina adds. “Fredika... Often spends the majority of her time down there. She was once a fearsome warrior, but now she’s often so distracted by her failures that even the newbies can often beat her here.” Zenga replies. “Ah ah ah... You promised everything my petit flower.” Alex says with a smirk.
[2/2] Zenga blushes deeply before turning away from you all. “This... This is only a rumour, but there is talk of some of the other Belkarian nobility and Fighting Clan elites wishing to either take her spot as the head Belkarian or leader of the Fighter’s Guild. She’d probably be kiddnapped and subjected to various tortures until she consents to release her position, but I’m not sure who else would be in on this conspiracy.” “You mean you right?” Alex then asks with his arms crossed. A small silence can be heard throughout the room before Zenga turns around. “Well what else are we supposed to do!? Watch as the current Belkarian leader attempts to drink herself to death and makes a mockery out of everything not only the Belkarians, but the Canadian Fighter’s Guild stands for!? Some action had to be taken! Well I admit I have a decent shot at either, something had to be done before Fredika completely destroyed the integrity of both organizations!”
>>28255709"Well then, time to try Brooklyn secret tea magic, no time to say more. Oh and you can keep Alex for the night see it as a bonus for the extra info."Time to go save some belkarian knight.
>>28255709>“The Red Piss Alehouse.”Well, that sound ominous. I suggest avoiding the booze and hookers. Though asking for weird hookers might lead to Frederika, or at least a way to scout the place out.
>>28255870SecondedOn a side note, prostituting Alex worked really well.
>>28255801tell her that there may be a way to get fredika out of her funk, that is actually why were looking for her among other thingsthen lets head out and talk to fredika, and lets try to show her that the queens are still around and that she didnt actually completely fail her old wovs and that she might be able to attone for them
>>28255919I suppose we could technically argue that earth did not fall, because the Astral Prison remained in Succubi hands.
>>28255870Grab Shiva while passing by, I'm sure fighting a team strong enough to kidnap Fredika would entice her amd at worst we can start a bar fight
>>28255945and we are planning on taking everything back, so we can spin all of it as a long stalemate, not as a defeatim sure she would like that if she believed it, and she WILL believe it if she sees the queens still alive
[1/2] “Yes... I’m very sure that a place named ‘Red Piss Alehouse’ is no way indeed omnious.” you reply. “From my previous jobs, it’s the place only the really desperate went to. I heard they water down drinks with something other than water to keep costs down.” Wilhelmina replies. “I... was happier not knowing that.” Nalika replies. “No use standing around here then. Come on. Let’s head over to the Red Piss Alehouse to see what we can find.” you tell the group, before turning to Zenga. “Oh yes, and as for thanks, we’ll let you keep Alex for the rest of the night when we’re done.” Zenga is about to say something, before she blushes a beet red and turns her head aside. “Brooklyn! A whole night!?” Alex asks as you head out of the room. “I’m only one man! There’s only so much I can do to please a w-” You turn around and grab Alex by the collar. “Alex. If I *ever* hear you talking about how you have a problem with demonic nobility in bed given my *condition*...” you say in a nasty voice (with a hint of jealousy) before making your left hand glow in dark flame. “I will impale you.” “Oui! PERFECTLY clear!” Alex immediately says in fear. Heading back down to the arena floor, you can that Shiva is still inside of the ring. Not even a nick on her clothing as she only uses two of her eight hands to parry a barrage of blows from some Elf on the stage. “Ha! I’ve trapped you!” The male elf says pointing his short sword at Shiva. “You’ve got no where to run!”
[2/2] “Dear... You didn’t lure me here. If anything I came here to be closer to the exit of the arena~.” Shiva says in a politely happy tone. “What!?” The Elf says. In that precise second where the Elf is stunned, Shiva seems to grab his arm and pull him in just before the other arm slams directly into the Elf’s stomach at full speed. A bit of blood actually flying out of his mouth and the look of intense pain on his face before he goes unconscious. “There we go~.” Shiva says grabbing the Elf’s sword and putting back in the sheath before throwing the Elf outside of the ring to what appears to be a pile of human misery and suffering. “Are you having fun mother?” Nalika asks. “Immensely!” Shiva honestly replies. Many of the people around the ring are simply staring at various spots in the ring. Empty space where likely some battle took place, but are too stunned to even move their own eyes. (Anything Brooklyn wants to say/do to Shiva here?)
>>28256285Enter the ring and fight Shiva?
>>28256346No. that would be suicide... though She might be able to solo the Drauger...maybe at some later point we could mention knowing an immortal undead who makes for a good fight...
>>28256285"We're going to a less than respectable bar to find the person we're looking for, you're free to come with us but if you do I'd prefer if you would refrain from challenging her until after we fix her."
>>28256285well, tell her were going to the red piss alehouseshe might want to tag along
>>28256663Fucking net shortages.Updating now
"We're going to a less than respectable bar to find the person we're looking for, you're free to come with us.” you tell her. “Is Nalika coming?” She asks. “No.” Nalika replies. “Then I’d love to come~” Shiva replies as she walks down and out of the ring, the crowd just seeming to magically part ways for her as she walks down to you. “...I'd prefer if you would refrain from challenging her until after we fix her." you add. “Oh come now Brooklyn. Not all Wrath demons are slaves to their pa-” “NO! NO! THAT *DOES NOT* COME FROM YOU!” Nalika immediately says as part of an outburst. ****** As you approach the Red Piss Alehouse downtown, you can see the sign hanging by a single chain, showing a tipsy Dragon holding a mug of ale. Several bums line the street nearby, either sleeping or asking for some change as you walk by. The inside of the tavern is nearly dilapidated as the outside, but only with a far stronger smell of... you honestly be happier not knowing. Nearly all of the patrons inside of this place appear to be the really sleazy or low trash kind of people. The really desperate people who’d settle for booze at just about an- “...Brodin?” you ask at a Reaper nearby. “Hhhheeeyyyy!!! Black Mushroom! Welcome to the cheapest drinks in town!” Brodin says holding his mug up, you taking a reflexive step back to make sure none of the drink spills onto you.
>>28257001"Hard at work I see... Any undead at the bottom of that mug?"use Aether sight to try and see Fredika...
>>28257001Turn on our aura sight and look for fredrika"So before we inadvertently trash the place for some reason or other, did you spot any drunk succubus?"
[1/2] “...Brodin. I thought you had more taste than this.” Mina says shaking her head at Brooklyn. “What!? Ever since the last bar got trashed this was only other bar which was closer!” Brodin protests. “...There is a three star bar just down the street here.” Wilhelmina states. “Yea but that’s the ENTIRE street!” Brodin replies. "Hard at work I see... Any undead at the bottom of that mug?" you as Brodin as you scan the room with your aether sight. The thing that immediately catches your eyes is that a good half dozen people do indeed have some form of enlightened aura to them. “Ha! You don’t to ask that, as you know I’d of already taken care of the spirits at the bottom of this mug!” Brodin says slamming the now empty mug down on the table. “Take THAT evil brown spirit barrel!” “Hm... I suppose one who doesn’t fear death would be the one to drink this poison.” Shiva says as she holds a mug of beer in her hands. “Hey you wrench...” a large, fat man with an eyepatch says standing up behind Shiva. Seeming to tower over your group. “That’s my d-” Nalika’s reply to this is simply extending one of her arms straight up, instantly seeming to knock out the teeth of the man before he stumbles to the floor.
[2/2] “Oh Nalika! You ARE learning some lessons from me!~” Shiva replies. “I couldn’t bear his breath.” Nalika replies. "So before we inadvertently trash the place for some reason or other, did you spot any drunk succubus?" you ask Brodin. “Hm... Uh...” Brodin seems to think. “Oh! Yea! This was this one white mushroom who was taken away by a group of black bears! Just walked right out the door the morning!” Brodin recalls. “Great! You know what they look like!?” Mina asks in an excited tone. “...Who?” Brodin asks. Alex only sighs at this point, his hand covering his face. “Hey... We don’t like your kind asking too many questions ‘ere, arite?” you hear some man say behind you. Looking behind you, you can see that unlike the other rabble here is has some rather impressive armour and axe. Bit ill-kept but something leagues above the other things here. As you look around the bar, you can see the people with enlightened aether signatures also get up from their chairs...
>>28257402"Oh, good, tell us what we want to know and I won't turn you into a puppet."
>>28257402Looks like we're trashing the place first after all.
Darkness tentacles time?
>>28257402roll our eyes at himwe have, what, two wrath demons, one of whom just beat the everliving shit out of an entire fighters guild, a belkarian, we are an okarian lord who has only ever practiced her combat powers and... well, we have some others with us who fit the bill tootell him that wed rather not trash the place but that it WILL happen if he starts something
>>28257402"Brodyn does any of those gentleman might be related to those that took the white mushroom?"
"Brodin does any of those gentleman might be related to those that took the white mushroom?" you ask. “Uh... Yea! Those are the black bears!” Brodin proclaims. “Oh, good, tell us what we want to know and we won't turn you into a puppet." you reply. “Oh now you see that won’t do any good fer you there missie.” the man says taking a few steps until he seems to tower over you. “See me and mai friend ‘ere should be more than capable of teaching a group of wee lasses such as yourself why you shouldn’t be asking questions that are better left not asked!” “...I’m a guy.” Alex replies. “...Could’ve fooled me.” the big man in armour says after a few seconds of studying Alex. Alex’s eyebrow only twitches in response. Looking at this man, the first thing that comes back to your mind is your height. I mean you weren’t the tallest guy in the world, but damn just by losing a few inches and it feels like everyone else is a giant compared to you.
>>28257753Darkness form (YAY massive social intimidation bonus). "I'm sorry, I didn't quite here what you were saying."
>>28257793how about nowe dont want to be linked to the BLACK FLAME HUNTERlets do something with our laser or hologram powers insteador maybe just point out the wrath demons
>>28257793>using black flame huntress formnope>>28257753"You're welcome to try. I might teach you and your friend thing or two about getting your ass handed to you."
Again darkness form is not a unique skill. Using it is no more likely to link us to him then using any darkness magic.
>>28257753"Now sir, we are only looking to speak briefly with a young woman who came drinking here. No need for anyone to end up as a corpse over this."
>>28258066this is good, but change > No need for anyone to end up as a corpse over this.to > No need for you to end up as a corpse over this.
As the man comes closer to you, you let some of the darkness on you lick off of your body in small flames as you look up at him. “I have two Wrath demons behind me, a Belkarian, a Warlord, and a Reaper directly in front of you. You're welcome to try. I might teach you and your friend thing or two about getting your ass handed to you." The man takes a step back upon seeing the display come off of you. “F-Fine! You hardly look to be worth the effort anyways!” the man says turning around to head back. “It’s always the big ones that are so easy to scare...” Mina mutters. “I know right. Just punch them once and they tend to end up weeping.” Shiva replies.
>>28258362Mayhap you gentlemen could tell us where our query has gone? I assume you know who I am referring to...
>>28258362hey, not so fast fuckohe still needs to tell us about fredika
“Perhaps you gentlemen could tell us where our query has gone? I assume you know who I am referring to.” you ask the man. The big man just smiles as he looks at you, before then pointing at you. “HA! Jokes on you! Our superior in fighting is also on his way here right now! Bluff all you want girls, but there’s no way you’re going to beat him?” “Hm? Oh you mean this man who tried to steal my coin purse?” Shiva asks holding up what appears to be a helmet with the imprint of a fist in the side of the head. ...Wait when did that happen? The man in armour’s face goes pale seeing the helmet in front of him. “...Pleasedon’tkillme.” “Again. Where. Is. Fredika.” Nalika asks. “S-She’s behind held some captive in a building down in the Old TO memorial section! 4-45th Memorial!” he blurts out. “I know where that is. It’s the area where the Science Lord put his bunker during the time he tried to take over Old TO.” Wilhelmina replies. “Ah oui! That’s the place downtown that is virtually abandoned!” Alex replies. Hm... You wonder how you should approach a situation like this...
>>28259128>“S-She’s behind held some captive in a building down in the Old TO memorial section! 4-45th Memorial!er, what? Anyway, we'll head over there, but our best sneaky person will lead the way, cloaked.
>>28259128>S-She’s behind held some captiveWhat? Does this mean she is being held captive? If so, getting a lay of the land would probably be a prudent first step. Perhaps with a little darkness, we might conceal our entrance.
>>28259128"Oh man can we don sentai costume? I'm calling red."Calling for dynamic entry
>>28259128>Hm... You wonder how you should approach a situation like this...unless this is some kind of ruse on someones part it should all be pretty easygo there and try to find out what we can about the sceneif we cant learn anything significant just go in and get to fredika
>>28259128It's the top of the fighters guild and Belkarian nobility, right? That will be tough. We'll have to be really sneaky and clever and... No wait, just throw Shiva at the problem again.
>>28259450I don't think we should rely on shiva too much
>>28259529She'll probably leave soon anyway. She's just tagging along to annoy her daughter. We should throw her at as many things as possible while we have the chance.
>>28259601We should try to beat some things ourselves and make a better impression.
>>28259625>A whole group of Belkarian Lords and Fighters Guild ElitesFailing will not make a good impression.
>>28259128we need to get as much info out of these chaps as possible. things like Who has her, why they have her, what they are planning to do, ect.
“Thanks idiot.” you say letting your darkness aura recede. “Come on guys, let’s go check out the area.” ****** “...This it?” you ask Wilhelmina. “This is it.” Wilhelmina says looking at her map. Looking up, you can see what appears to be a large building about ten floors high and made out of a pure rock called ‘concrete’. It seems to be only building standing on this block, as while a lot of the rubble has been cleared, there is still a lot of mess around this area in terms of scorch marks and craters. You can’t even hear anyone else alive in this area, as many people still think the inventions of the science lords still haunt this area. “I... Can’t see anyone extremely powerful inside that building...” Brodin says. “Nor do I... I think there are people waiting for us inside of the building for an ambush...” Shiva says in a worried tone. You can see Nalika twitch at the response from her mother. “...Brooklyn. We only need Fredika right?” “Yes b-” Upon saying this Nalika gets into a wide stance, holding all six of her arms clenched at her side, before finally putting all six of them at once out in front of her. A huge, blinding light can be seen in front of you accompanied by a thunderous roar. A bright, shimmering light lasting for a few seconds before finally dying down. Nalika with her outstretched arms in front of her, panting as smoke comes out of all six of her palms. Looking back at the building, you can see nothing but the rubble on the first floor being left behind. “Now why did you go and do that? That building did nothing to you...” Brodin says. Shiva just sighs as shakes her head. “Sweetie what did I tell you about wasting chi like that...”Hm... Interesting. Probably only a bit less power than your own Final Buster Spark.
>>28259721So wait, she just demolished the building?I guess torture chambers are always in basements anyway. Get whichever twin has Earth Control to start digging.
>>28259803>So wait, she just demolished the building?Yup
>>28259721"Well, lets find her then."
Well, they know we're here.Nice move, by the way.
>>28259721Time to start digging. Fredrika time!
“Time to start digging then.” you tell everyone in the group. “Nice move by the way Nalika.” You begin to dig through the rubble of the building that Nalika had blown apart. During that time you do find a few bodies, but Brodin goes about disposing of them with his death magic before they can really become a problem. ...In fact you think he’s doing that just to avoid getting away with lifting anything at all. “Found something.” Alex calls out in the rubble nearby. As you walk over, you can see what appears to be an iron door on the floor of the ground. “Well then, let’s head on in then shall we?” you ask using darkness tentacles to rip open the top of the iron door and throw it aside. As you look down, it is quite dark and a rather steep staircase into what appears to be the underground. “Brooklyn... It’s so dark down there...” Mina says in an intimidated tone of voice. “Oh don’t worry Mina... I’ll be sure to protect you...” Alex says in a smooth voice. (How do you plan to approach?)
>>28260206We can see in the dark, have us go by ourselves to scout the place.
>>28260297They know we're coming because we just dropped a building on them. There's probably only one entrance. I don't think walking into the ambush alone is a very good idea.
>>28260297>>28260455Conflicting votes here >>
hum send trap finder.... i mean hologram first? hologram copies will trigger any automated defences/traps left over or ambushes giving us advantage and info on terrain ahead..
>>28260297We have light spells, no need to split the party. NO NEED TO SPLIT THE PARTY EVER
>>28260671THIS. They already know we are coming, the stealth ship has sailed.
>>28260664>>28260671yeah, lets send three or four holograms down instead, see what happens
>>28260671>>28260713>>28260717Can't send soligrams out of our line of sight cap'n
>>28260875then look into the hole first
>>28260875actually we can technically with space control as line of sight sort ha\s become blurred.
>>28260931we aren't leveling up with draugr on the loose
>>28260931i forgot to add space control map building.
>>28260931makes you wonder why gemili dont use space control then
>>28260971Actual line of sight, not magical based.
>>28260206"Mina, sweetheart, I am not going to make you go down alone. And look," create solidigram, "I will even take the lead, in a manner of speaking."
>>28260875I don't know about the other two, but I was just saying we should light up the place, not send decoys.
>>28261044Creating light seems like the best idea
[1/3] Deciding to take the road of caution, you decide to create several soligrams and send them down first to see if there are any traps in the area. Sure enough you can actually see your soligrams head all the way down without any noticeable difficulties or traps. “Soligrams went down safely. Let’s go.” you say. “...Where’d Shiva go?” Brodin asks looking around. “She probably noticed a shiny rock somewhere. Now come on.” Nalika says as she descends the staircase straight down to the bottom. “Nalika wait up!” You and Mina say as you head down the stairs. As you head down the stairs, the hallway you head down seems to be extremely... barren in a sense. Paint far too chipped to read from the old world can be seen on the walls, all while some scorch marks can be seen around the walls and other areas. You keep your guard up the entire time, fists clenched and ready to throw out exploding orbs at any moment. You keep some soligrams out ahead of the group, just to trip off any traps, but as the tunnel goes on and on you simply don’t find any to trip off... Eventually you reach what appears to be a metal door from the old world. It takes both Alex and Mina some effort to open up, but eventually the both manage to pry it open. The door opens up to what appears to be some fancy old world hover tracks down below. Only a collapsed tunnel can be seen down the right, but when you look to the left you can see what appears to be another collection of Old World ancient trains, the entire area dimly lit by a collection of Old World light orbs that are in dire need to service from a technology cleric. “Wow... There are so many of them...” Mina comments. “Back when the Pride Demon’s took over, they demanded that the transportation systems be removed.” you reply.
[2/3] “They decided to store them in various underground sections of the city.” Wilhelmina adds as she continues to walk through the area with her hand on her blade. “They’re often a favorite target for many under city gangs.” “I can see that...” Alex says with his own blade out. “Plentiful cover and living space, away from prying eyes...” You then hear what sounds to be a clapping sound coming from atop a nearby train. Looking up, you can see what appears to be a large and very hairy humanoid sitting on top of the train in a chair. “Well done getting through the building. Kinda makes me regret booby trapping the entire thing if you were just going to blow through it.” “Mother always told me that such things are in the basement anyways.” Nalika replies. “A-A werewolf!?” Mina asks in a surprised tone of voice.“Where’s Fredika.” Wilhelmina asks, getting into a stance with her sword.“...Oh you friend? We’re still holding onto her in the meantime. We have a few... things we want her to do.” The Werewolf asks.“Ralph, I never thought of you the type to abduct innocent women like this.” Alex says in a coy voice.“Ha! Normally I don’t! But there is far more at stake here than just one capture woman!” The werewolf says hopping off the top of the bus, appearing to be at least a good seven feet tall as he seems to tower over all of you, wearing only a pair of shorts and an open jacket. “Some of the higher ups at the Fighters Guild are sick of the splintered and fractured leadership. We all know that Fredika is the strongest and most skilled warrior amongst us all, that much was proven back in the old days. But now she’s just a shell of her former self. If she wouldn’t been dead then it would’ve been easier to appoint a successor at least.”“How dare you speak like that of Fredika.” Wilhelmina says. You can taste the spicy anger that is coming from off her aura.
[3/3]“I only speak the truth Battle Mage. We gave Fredika chances... multiple chances. But now the matter is in our own hand, and we’re going to be forcing her to appoint a new successor of the Fighter’s Guild. ...Of course she’ll do the same for the Belkarians too, as part of our little deal we had going on.” Ralph replies, his eyes only seeming to be two glowing orbs against a black silhouette.“Egh! How can something so rotten exist within the Belkarian nobility! I thought we were the purest clan of them all for matters of honesty!” Mina says while in her stance.“That’s because we are realists who seek to better the world, not live by rose-tinted glasses.” Ralph replies as he snaps his fingers.Looking around, you can see about 10 other people make their way from out of the train cars, holding a mix of various weapons. A few Succubi can be counted amongst them, but many of them are human.“...I-I’m sorry I just zoned out and now I come to seeing we’re surrounded by people who want to try to kill us again... Am I passed out in the alleyway again?” Brodin asks as he looks around.Werewolves... They are vulnerable to Silver, but you’re out of luck on that front. They’re somewhat popular in Canada due to their intelligence, increased senses, and high regeneration rate.(I'm going to grab a shower and go to bed, but I'll sure as hell continue this tomorrow!)
>>28261332i dont get ittheyre just going to attack us even though they dont know why were here or anything?okay, why notput up a few darkness tentacles to protect us and a few others to take out the humansthen sen out blasts at the leader

>>28261466>theyre just going to attack us even though they dont know why were here or anything?Nalika collapsed the entire top.He's going that since you did something like that, you're obviously after them.
>>28261466We DID kinda blow up a building getting here.
>>28261556>>28261601so why did he get into that exposition then
>>28261684Because as soon as he knew we were after Fredika, he knew we weren't just random people there for the hell of it.
>>28262299yeah, but he talked a lot even after he knew it

>>28268688Indeed you will, as I'll be updating now!
[1/2]“Appears like it. (Get ready to close your eyes)” you say to Brodin. You hidden suggestion comment can only work at one person at a time for now, so you’re going to need to keep talking to him. “So are you going to attack us without even why we’re here? I mean it seemed odd of you to open up with that entire speech like that.”“...You vaporized the building above and know about Fredika. Even if you are innocent, I can’t let loose ends hang around like that.” Ralph replies.“Wilhelmina, got any experience with werewolves? (Get ready to close your eyes)” you ask her.“No.” Wilhelmina replies.“Alex? (Get ready to close your eyes)” you ask him.“Non.” Alex replies.“Nalika? (Get ready to close your eyes).” you tell her.“Once or twice.” she replies. “It was during a rainstorm and couldn’t get the smell of wet dog off me for weeks after.”You can see the werewolf’s eye twitch a bit after hearing that comment.“...Mina? (Get ready to close your eyes)” you ask.“Oh look your fur is all matted and ruffled! If any Kitsune found out about this, they’d be quite angry with you!” Mina lectures Ralph.“Don’t compare me to those glass mouthed pretty boys! Besides, do you know how damn long it takes to get ready every morning! Nearly two hours!” Ralph replies.
[2/2]“You know being a woman I can... actually sympathize on you with that.” you reply, recalling the stupid amount of preparation you needed to do for anything remotely formal. You then ball up your fist before extending it out at Ralph. “But that’s pretty much where everything we have in common ends!”You flood the area with a brilliant burst of light. Ralph manages to shield his eyes a bit, but is still caught fairly off guard by the attack. A few of the guards in the trams seem to be caught off guard as well, but two of them holding bows must have some light resistance of some sort, as they immediately let loose two arrows at you as soon as the burst goes off.You try to dodge the arrows, the first just whizzing by your stomach while the second just grazes the side of your arm and makes a small cut in the side.The rest of your group still have their eyes closed, but are now quickly beginning to spread out into the subway trams with Alex heading straight towards Ralph.
Rolled 100>>28269697Use Darkness tentacles to stab the archers though their arms and legs. Should cripple their ability to fight efficiently....rolling JiC
>>28269743that just in case is best case ahah.This because 100 on roll.
You decide to let Alex and the other tough fighters deal with the large and powerful werewolf. You’re going to deal with at least getting rid of these other two archers in the area. You summon up a darkness lance and aim for one of the archers, sending out a field of small darkness lancers directly to the human one of the archers. You’re betting your money that all of these suckers are enlightened in some fashion, and you can’t discount any of them. The archer sees the attack coming and tries to hop down behind the train for cover, but you bend the darkness tentacles at the last second to impale the archer directly through his arms and legs dead on. Not enough for a killshot, but certainly should be enough to cripple him. “HMMM! HMMM!” you hear a panicked voice down next to you. Looking down, you can see what appears to be two people. One of them appears to be a young child with long blond hair, looking up at you with pleading blue eyes for you to undo the bonds that restrain him. Another older woman behind him with white hair also appears to be tied up, but seems to have a blank look in her eyes. You can hear the sounds of some clashing of blades outside. By the sounds of it, the other warriors appear to have shaken off your flash, or at least some of them have.
Rolled 59move them to a safer area while sending a few exploding-solidogram soldiers to distract some of the fighters.

Rolled 52>>28270032Not taking any chance until the fight is over they're staying like this. make attack of opportunities, fire lasers at occupied opponent. Also keep an eye on the fight so we can disrupt the enemy strategy when necessary.
>>28270095This. Perhaps I am a bit paranoid, but I do not want to untie them quite yet.
Rolled 87>>28270032Yea, let's save the untying till we're done.. Until then... Solidgram army assemble!!!
“Sorry guy! Bit busy right now! I’ll try and free you once we’re not getting shot at!” you say summoning a small squad of explosive Soligrams out the the train and jumping on top of it.As soon as the head of a single one makes it over the train, it’s sniped by an archer and explodes violently. Two more are sniped before they make it to the top of the train, making it so only about two actually get on top. Ducking down to get a slightly better view, you can see it’s that Belkarian(?) archer from earlier. You can tell this one knows light control, as all of her arrows have a bright stream of light coming out from behind them.Damnit... With that archer up there like that she’s free to keep you pinned down without you having to do shit.“Oh come on! Stop moving around! It’s hard to hit the two of you!” Brodin says a bit down from a corridor of trains, making a wide sweep with his scythe at some man carrying a longsword. Brodin’s single slash makes a huge gash directly in the side of the train where he swipes, but misses completely as the man as already jumped to the top of the train tracks.“Allons moi chien!” Alex says taunting to the werewolf down a few trains over. You can see what is going on exactly due to the trains getting in the way of your sight, but the sound of tearing metal leaves some things to the imagination.“HA! Got you!” you can hear Mina say as you can see a figure literally fly through a train as it’s impacted by Mina’s punch, landing in the train across from you. “Try getting up from t- huh!?”Mina seems surprised as the figure just casually rips an iron pipe out of her leg as if it were nothing. “Aide. Nice try.” The Aide says before getting out her nunchucks again.“...THAT’S why your ribcage felt so hard!” Mina replies.As this goes on, you notice the long haired kid is now kicking the side of your leg, a small look of anger in his eyes as he wants to be untied.
Rolled 68>>28270469>broken frenchpls sandactUntie the kid but keep an eye on him. Fire some annihilator beam at the archer.
Rolled 12>>28270469Kid, maybe you don't understand about "in the middle of a fight, not a good time"? *throws out a few darkness tentacles* We'll help both of you as soon as we get this under control.
Rolled 82>>28270469rip the binds with a tentacle or something then kill that acher
Rolled 12>>28270469hmmm, darkness reacts violently to light.... maybe we could get a thin tendril of darkness to snake it's way though the shadows and 'grab' an arrow.... when she applies light magic to it, it will go Boom! and she will feel the sting of a backfire...
[1/2]“Fine!” you yell in reply as darkness tentacles rip at the binds that keep the kid tied up.“About time!” The kid replies as he nearly pushes you out of the way, leaning out the side of the window before taking a deep breathing before exhaling what appears to be a stream of golden flames directly at the Aide that Mina had punched into the bus. The withers around while screaming in pain from the golden flames. “That’s for abducting me!” the kid yells out at the Aide who is on fire....Interesting... You’re going to have to make a note to talk to this k-An arrow just grazes your head, the light trailer it had dying off before settling in the side of the train.Reflexive you run to cover below the train window and us some space control to bend your line of sight so you can still see your soligrams. You’re going to need to talk to the kid when you’re not being shot at.“...Huh while that was easy.” Mina says as she sees the screaming Aide run by.“Mina! Get the archer! I’m pinned and can’t move from this spot!” You tell her.“I’ll try, but her arrows are hard to dodge!” Mina says as she jumps on top of the bus.
[2/2]The archer takes her time to pick off another soligram just before seeing Mina, in which after seeing her she takes out another arrow and fires it off at Mina. Two arrows go by, Mina swatting one of the air with the other making an impact directly above her own arm.Glancing down at Brodin, you can see that the swordsman Brodin is now fighting against now has the added element of a spearman joining the party, thrusting at Brodin in a furious tempo of assaults. “Screw this.” Brodin replies spinning his scythe and slamming it into the ground, making a small spell circle appear on the ground followed by spectral wisps. The spearman as a result falters in his attack, coughing up what appears to be a large mouthful of blood, while the other swordsman on top of the car just seems to scream in horror for no reason while blood comes out of his ears, seemingly frozen in place by some invisible horror.
>>28270469Use a nice beam attack on the archer, the use a tentacle to undo the gag. Ask him what he is on about.
Rolled 50>>28270888Get the archer attention back to us, we should try those improved dark/light grenade in a real combat situation.
>>28270888Can't we just stay behind cover, use space control to see the archer and then just beam her?
Rolled 43>>28270955I'll rewrite "beam" from here to dark/lgith grenades.I forgot we had those >>28270946 good point.
[1/2]Hm... You really wanted to save this until you had more ideal conditions, but it appears you don’t have a choice. You begin to quickly try and formulate a stable version of your Annihilator Grenade, quickly but at the same time carefully putting it together. You’re not able to get the small pieces done right, but you hope that the structure should at least work.Just in the nick of time, as the Archer is now hopping away in order to get away from Mina, firing off an arrow to take care of the last explosive Soligram, Mina storming through the smoke in order to get her hands on the Belkarian archer.Just in the nick of time, you finish your grenade and hurl it at not the archer herself, but instead where she’d be landing in the train. You toss the grenade and nearly half of the entire car is engulfed in a large explosion, easily blowing out the roof and hopefully enough to mess up her landing.It seems to work as the Belkarian goes to fall, but at the last second uses a hand to grab the side of the train. She bites down on the arrow and uses her mouth to draw the string of her bow as Mina charges her.Mina seems to take the bolt head on directly in the leg, but that doesn’t seem to stop her as she lands another punch on the archer, sending her flying off of the handheld she has on the train and straight into the next carriage.
[2/2]Brodin meanwhile goes for the man who is vomitting blood currently, swinging down his scythe with a cloud of dark energy behind it. The man manages to jump back in time, but only for Wilhelmina to rush by and hit the man directly in the back, making him simply collaspe to the floor in a heap.“Thanks for the assist.” Brodin says to Wilhelmina.“My pleasure. I’ve never seen a Reaper fight before.” Wilhelmina says looking at the status of the men that Brodin attacked. “It’s...”“Some other reapers claims it helps them go to sleep at night.” Brodin says. “You get any?”“I got one, Nalika got two before moving over to help Alex. We need to help him as he won’t last forever against that werewolf.” Wilhelmina suggests.As you look at the kid, you can see that he’s now seeming to take deep breaths, as if out of breath from that previous attack he did.
>>28271378What is the status of enemy fighters? How do things look like?
Rolled 85>>28271378Time to help Alex too I guess, no need to make more soligram and be in the way of all the melee fighter, let's just fire annihilator beam from a safe position.
>>28271378Go bind the werewolf up with darkness tentacles. We may not be able to hurt him without silver but we can still stop him.
>>28271536This sounds good. Ask the kids if he is alright.
[1/2]“What are the status on the rest of the fighters!?” you call out to Wilhelmina.“Still a few left.” Wilhelmina calls back.As you rush through the train cars once again, you can begin to see the scene in front of you of Alex against the Werewolf. While the werewolf seems to have a large gash directly up the side of his chest from Alex, but it seems as if that’s the only major wound Ralph has. As he continues to take swipes at Alex with his claws, you can see that the lesser wounds are healing up without any sort of problem whatsoever before your eyes. Alex and Nalika however are looking a bit worse for wear. Alex has taken a few blows from Ralph while Nalika, appearing to have less wounds, does appear to be exhausted from the earlier beam attack she fired at the building.Ralph’s claws suddenly grow at length, making Alex’s eyes grow wide for a second before jumping out of the way. The slash that Ralph makes seems to literally cut the train car that he hit into three claw sized pieces from the swipe.Nalika herself appears to be running towards Ralph, just as some man from the shadows seems to pop out and stab her directly in the back with a dagger.“ARGH! GET OFF ME ASSHOLE!” Nalika roars as she grabs the thief, flipping him over onto the ground before stomping at his location.“...Oh nuts to this...” Brodin says as shadows begin to collect around him, forming up and building to the horrific image of the Reaper.
[2/2]“I agree with you there Brodin!” you yell out as you begin to pelt the werewolf with annihilator shots. The glowing black orbs seem to swerve through the maze of trains before finally hitting Ralph in a series of explosions. You can tell that Ralph definitely felt that one, seeming to seek cover from the homing balls.Just as this happens, you can feel a sharp pain in your shoulder before you are send sprawling to the ground. As you glance over, you can see an arrow now embedded into your shoulder.“Damn longbows!” You yell to yourself as you see the arrow.“Sorry. I thought I got him.” Wilhelmina calls out.“...Are you OK Ma’am!?” the kid asks rushing over to you.“I got an arrow to the shoulder! Hardly!” you reply as you look at the arrow shaft inside of your flesh. “What about you after that... thing you did earlier?!”“The holy flame breath attack? It makes me short of breath for a few seconds, but I should be good to use it again in about 10 seconds.” The kid replies....Holy flame... That explains why it was so effective against the Aide.
Rolled 66>>28271916"We'll likely need that to calm the werewolf down, now if you don't mind."Laser shot at the archer, I'd also like a status on our aether reserve.
>>28271901>“What are the status on the rest of the fighters!?” you call out to Wilhelmina.I was actually asking you Sand, not mean as a story dialogue. But ok.>>28271916We should really take care of the archers
Rolled 63>>28271916Use darkness to trap the remaining archers, then beat them down.
>>28271916What is this kid's deal? An angel fucked a dragon or something? And why is he with Fredika?
>>28272034Issue is that you don't know where the Archer is. Not because of darkness, but because he's hiding.
>>28272110Does homing work on a hidden enemy?
>>28272110Then simply explode the area from where he shot at us, also take cover
>>28272110>Enhanced Space Control>Can make a mental map of an area, determine everything about it such as every leaf or that ninja in the rafters.That doesn't help? Can we use space control to find him?
>>28272275You can certainly try with space control yes
Rolled 76>>28272300Go for it, need a roll?
Rolled 32>>28272110Sounds like we could try a Dark-Spike Graveyard combo with Brodin....If we find him with it, get Brodin to hold it while we put a laser though the spikes around him, causing the whole graveyard to go boom...
[1/2]“The hell!? Was your mother an angel and your dad a dragon or something!?” you ask as to begin to try and use space control to map out where that bolt came from.“What!? No! I’m a Gold Dragon!” the kid replies.“Gold Dragon!? I thought you were all with Celestia!” you bark back as you get your readout back. You pinpointed the area where the arrow came from, but your space control shows at least several different areas where the archer can be hiding from.“Oh my god! How many times do we need to say it!? We live IN Celestia, we’re not with them!” The kid replies back. “Does everyone down here believe in that!?”“Apparently!” you yell back as you raise your hands up out of cover and begin to pelt the entire area where the Archer was detected with your Annihilator shots, hoping that if you at least don’t kill him that he will be at least flushed out of the area.Sure enough you can see him come out from the smoke, not hit but his snipers nest sure as hell gone. Wilhelmina tries to take him by surprise, slashing at him from below. However the archer must’ve been alert, as he pulls his longbow back and fires a bolt with such recoil that it snaps him back a good ten or so meters on top of the train.The arrow hits Wilhelmina, but her aether shield gives a quick blue flash before the arrow seems to impact her armour. Wilhelmina rushes the archer, firing a bolt of white flame at him. The archer trying to dodge, but catching his leg on fire instead.
[2/2]“DeAtH... hAs CoMe FoR yOu...” Brodin says in his Reaper form, grabbing his scythe with both hands while floating over to where Ralph’s location is.“Better Reapers than you have tried!” Ralph yells out as he springs from cover, claws on both hands extending before he makes a cross X swipe, cutting nearly two subway cars into pieces in the slash.Brodin seems to take the hit, the ghost robes falling off in some tatters, but not before swinging his scythe in a wide arch around him, seeming to cut both the roofs off the two subway cars near them. Alex comes back out of a train car, carrying his saber before making a large uppercut directly up the side of Ralph while he’s vulnerable. Ralph manages to dodge it, but what he doesn’t dodge is the triple punch directly from Nalika, punching him directly through a hover train car.“I’m done with the archer nnnooowww!” Mina says behind you as she skips up behind you. You notice that she has another arrow stuck in her leg, but she’s still fine otherwise.
Rolled 26>>28272674We have to immobilize that archer. Seems that it's his only advantage. Darkness tentackles
Rolled 15>>28272674Go darkness form. Tie him down and pound him into the dirt with tentacles.
Rolled 15>>28272674"Good work."Scan the area for any target still able to fight. Then take care of them.
Rolled 7>>28272711>>28272735..../tg/ dice...>>28272674
>>28272745shhhhh we can't always be usefull
That archer is a mobile little bastard, so your best chances of actually trying to beat him mainly consist of just trying to rob him of that mobility.You begin to concentrate and try to make darkness tentacles grab at his feet. Unfortunately he must see this coming, as he springs out of the way jumping to the next cart while firing another shot at Wilhelmina.Wilhelmina sidesteps the projectile before jumping after the archer again, this time resheathing her katana before hurling another glob of white fire at the archer once again.“Yea... I felt that one...” Ralph mutters as he tries to sit back up, but quickly rolls aside as Reaper Brodin swipes his scythe and cuts an entire car directly in half. Ralph tries to get up, but is further caught off guard when Nalika rushes over, breaking the coupling that holds both the cars together before lifting up one of the cars by herself, forcing Ralph down and directly into the path of Alex who is already within a stance.Rather than slide down, Ralph grabs a nearby pole and pushes himself down directly towards Alex, catching him off guard and planting his feet directly in Alex’s face.“WHAMMO!” Mina then says as soon as Ralph comes out of the car, punching him into a collision course directly into another car.Ralph gets back up, pulling out what appears to be a loose tooth from his jaw. “Can we seriously stop with being punched through the cars!? It was old the first time!”
Rolled 1>>28273146"No" Darkness tentacle slam him into another car. Oh, activate darkness form as well.

“Thanks for the idea Ralph!” you say using your darkness tentacles to instead grab a nearby train car. You can hear the metal buckle and bend under the strength of your tentacles, before finally hurling it in the archer’s direction.The archer manages to see it coming with the amount of prep you’re forced to do on it, and jumps down in between the cars, followed by Wilhelmina just as the car crashed over atop their heads and duel between them continues while out of sight.Just as Ralph gets back up and out of the train, you can see Alex, Mina, and Nalika rushing towards him. Nalika and Mina rushing in front, both of them bringing their fists back for a rather massive blow. Ralph is large enough so that he’s able to block the assault that Nalika and Mina lands on him, but not before Alex seems to jet underneath Nalika in a low stance before giving an sword uppercut from the bottom, retracing the scar that the Werewolf has on his body. This makes him stumble back a few steps, but not before Brodin seems to just fade directly through the subway cars.“TiMe To EnD tHiS...” Brodin says slamming his scythe directly down into Ralph’s body, exiting his chest on the other side as his scythe glows. Ralph’s eyes go wide in shock, before finally collasping down onto the floor.Alex takes a few deep breaths before collapsing at the rear of a train car. “He... He did not go down easily... Did he...”“Werewolves... If you don’t land a solid blow then they’re just going to keep coming.” Nalika says shaking all of her hands.“...I got him.” Wilhelmina then calls out from behind one of the subway cars. “I... Have an arrow in my knee though...”

[1/2]“Alright someone do a check of the arena and make sure no one is left. I don’t want to be stabbed in the back as we go to leave this damn place.” you mutter as you walk out of the train car.“How are we going to move wolfie’s body?” Mina ask.“I’m not dead you airhead...” Ralph replies with a cough on the ground.“I spared his life... he won’t getting back up anytime soon.” Brodin says in his normal form, holding onto his scythe. Some of the clawmarks that Ralph had made earlier can be seen cutting through his robe and onto his chest.“...Mina, can you please go and get Leona so we can help heal up some of these injuries we’ve sustained?” you ask.“OK!” Mina says as she pulls out an arrow and runs off.“Apologies, I would try to heal you, but I do not know the proper healing processes for healing demons.” the child dragon replies.“And you are?” Nalika asks the child.“My nickname is Kyon, as my dragonic name is too long.” the child replies.“...Wait. Dragonic?” Alex asks.“I’m a Gold Dragon.” the kid replies.“...What is a gold dragon doing here.” Wilhelmina asks as she overlooks from a hover train car above.“I was simply travelling before I was abducted and held for ransom.” Kyon says with a frown while looking at Ralph.
[2/2]“Hey look, you know how much money Gold Dragons, or even dragons in general often have?” Ralph asks.“Why do people keep believing these things!?” Kyon asks while fuming, his tail going straight up behind him in anger.“...And what’s your family’s worth?” Alex asks.“About 300 billion platinum for my parents alone. Why?” Kyon asks.“Great job fighting the stereotype there kid.” Brodin replies.“But why are you here in Canada? A place of eternal winter?” you ask.“I thought about exploring the world, so that’s what I’m doing. Most demons and people tend to leave me alone when they know what I am.” Kyon replies.“What did you do to Fredika.” Wilhelmina demands.“...Good question. I found her in the cabin over there and it looks like all life had been drained from her.” you say using a thumb to point back to the carriage.“Um... Nothing. A few of the guys might’ve tried to cop a feel, but when we met her in the bar and said we were kidnapping her, she barely put up and resistance and pretty much came willingly.” Ralph replies.
>>28274178"Well then I have some things to say to her in an attempt to shake her off, Brodin can you make sure I'm not interupted and nobody's eavesdropping until Leona arrives?"Time to make some tea and attempt to have a discussion with our new friend.
"Well then I have some things to say to her in an attempt to shake her off, Brodin can you make sure I'm not interupted and nobody's eavesdropping until Leona arrives?" you ask Brodin.“...Uh... Do I have to? That Reaper form took a lot out from me.” Brodin complains.Just as this is going on, you can hear Ralph laughing while on the ground.“What so funny chien?” Alex asks him while making sure his saber is visible.“Idiots! What you fought was only a small part of our overall force! As soon the building above collasped, agents from all over the city will be swarming to this location! There’s no w-”“Hhhheeellllllooo everyone~.” Shiva says walking out from in between the trains.“Oh great... It’s you...” Nalika says giving a sigh. “I thought you were distracted by a shiny copper coin.”“Oh no! On the way here I found this lovely crepes store! So I split off to get myself a crepes!” Shiva explains. “But on the way back here to find out, I ran into a rather rowdy crowd of gentlemen who tried to assault me for no good reason, and what better way to unwind after desert than a sparring session!”“W-What!? You beat 150 of our men AT ONCE just like that!?” Ralph gasps while staring at Shiva wide eyed.“Oh THAT’S how many there were! I honestly lost count after 79 with all the screaming and yelling going on.” Shiva replies.
>>28274649But he is a puppy!
>>28274673he is disgusting infectionkill himremove him from existencewaste of time = ralp
>>28274669Shiva definatly would be able to solo Draugr Brooklyn...
>>28274669Shiva too stronk nerf pls Shiva is Gym GhinghamBut seriously can we get on with Fredika talk time?Go free fredika and brew some tea, when this is done offer her a cup."Purple would be ashamed to see you in this state, you didn't even put up a fight against your kidnapper."
>>28274669Well Shiva, I think you and Ralph should have a nice talk about people coming after us while I talk to Fredika. *Untie Fredika* Ok, now come over here for a bit while you and I have a little girl talk. You've been moping more then long enough, and it's time to get you straightened out.
>>28274669"Remind me to introduce you to a friend of mine someday, I think you'd get along like a house on fire. Or a city."
“Well Shiva, I think you and our werewolf friend Ralph should have a nice talk about people coming after us while I talk to Fredika.” you suggest to her.“Oh my! That sounds like such a wonderful idea!” Shiva says skipping over to a Ralph that now has a terrified look on his face.You head on over to Fredika, cutting up the bonds that held her in place before sitting down on a grav train seat that isn’t broken. Pretty much true to the sayings of others, Fredika is currently not even moving from her position on the floor, her own eyes appearing to be dull and listless as she remains on the floor. “...Thanks... I guess...”“You've been moping more then long enough, and it's time to get you straightened out.” you tell Fredika.Fredika just gives a sigh. “That’s what they’ve all been saying. Why doesn’t anyone ever take the hint that I just want to be left alone?”“...Why did you agree to be kidnapped then?” you ask.“It was fairly free of people until that Gold Dragon came by, and he didn’t talk much with the gag in his mouth and all.” Fredika replies.
>>28275054"Well I'll leave you alone if you wish so but one of my "sponsor" want a talk with you and I don't think she'll be happy to see you like this knight Zombolt."
>>28275105sounds good. I would have been tempted to use 'Benefactor' rather than 'Sponsor' but either word is suitable in the current circumstance.Maybe put forward the idea that the current 'occupancy' was not a loss, but a strategic withdrawal with plans for guerilla activities and a counter offensive at a later stage...
>>28275054"Tell you what, how about you come back to my place and I'll contact the person who asked me to check in on you and you can tell her you want to be left alone. Think she'll be dissapointed though, she has been worring about you for the bast couple hundred years."
>>28274724No we should spare him . he really is just a mercenary doing a job even if it is a horrible one. Also seems to be normally on good terms with Alex.Lets talk with Fredrika as after all she might be highly suicidal at this point, considering she went willingly. I really want to at least address the issue. As for Kyon well we could offer a place at our place. Wondering how he may interact with Leona and if he may have insight on Celestia.
>>28275158I would be cautious what with the mixed company. As much of a gem as the wrath demons have been, I believe to prudent to remain sceptical of their loyalty.
"Tell you what, how about you come back to my place and I'll contact the person who asked me to check in on you and you can tell her you want to be left alone. Think she'll be disappointed though, she has been worrying about you for the past couple hundred years." you tell her.“...I told Sherri I’m not into women anymore. It was a phase in a my life.” Fredika replies.“Well why don’t you come to my place anyways? If anything those people may send reinforcements again, leading to just another loud clash of battles and more social contact with people you wish to avoid.” you tell.“...You really try too hard... Don’t you?” Fredika asks. It’s at this point you notice that the clothing on her body must’ve been there for an extremely long period of time, if the stench of booze didn’t try to cover it up instead. A shame really as despite some the dirt and unkempt hair, she does appear to be a rather wonderful woman.“...You’re persistent, I’ll give you that. Fine, I’ll go. But if you live somewhere that’s below a bowling alley that’s below another bowling alley, we’re going to have a few words.” Fredika says standing up.Leading Fredika back to the rest of the group with the others, you can see Shiva just climbing off the chest of the werewolf.“My... and I was hoping that he’d at least put a bit more effort into talking at least.” Shiva says shaking some blood from her hands.Fredika’s eyes go a bit wide for a moment. “E-”“Now now dear, we all have our own little secrets, so how about you keep that bit of information to yourself hm?” Shiva asks Fredika with a smile.“Whatever.” Fredika replies.(Anything else before you leave?)
>>28275054This is down right sad. After Purple sent me here, I'm not sure I can stand having her see you like this! You call yourself a leader? Who in gods name was supposed to be holding things together until the queens returned again? Maybe you're right. I was going to take you to have a talk to your queen, but in this state, that might just be a waste.
>>28275445Nope. I think that's it. Go back to base. Have the twins look after the kid. Have a long private heart to heart talk between Purp and Fredika. Go!
>>28275445>Empress ShivaOy veyOtherwise no I think that's it.
Nah. Lets get back. Once there we can inform her that if she wants, she can get herself cleaned up while we call her queen. Or not
>>28275445>Fredika’s eyes go a bit wide for a moment. “E-”>“Now now dear, we all have our own little secrets, so how about you keep that bit of information to yourself hm?” Shiva asks Fredika with a smile.>Empress ShivaI honestly had my suspicions about this since we first met her
>>28275560Nah. No warning. This girl deserves to have her queen see EXACTLY how she's been doing. Now we all know Purple is the most gentle soul you'll ever meet, but something tells me she might have a thing or two to say about how Fredika's been handling herself the past thousand years.. and I think it would be good for her to hear it.
>>28275580It was sort of obvious that Nalika was the missing princess that those wrath demons in the draugr bar were talking about. But it's polite to pretend not to know.
>>28275691>tfw you imagine Shiva with a command horn and char glasses now
“We’re all done here, let’s head back to our place so we can lick our wounds and get some peace and quiet.” you reply to everyone at the scene. “Kyon, you can come too if you like.”“Warm food and good company would be great after being stuck here with these louts for the past few days.” Kyon replies.“It’s always nice to have a new petit and adorable girl with us as well.” Alex says with a warm smile.“I’m a guy.” Kyon replies with a flat stare and dull tone.******Once you get back to your place, Leona is more than happy to fix your wounds after getting over her panic attack that you were all attacked in some form. While the rest of the group heads into the the main room. The twins and Leona especially were fawning over Kyon and how adorable he was, probably being dragged off to dress him up somewhere.Fredika doesn’t take much effort to get into your room, and pretty soon you are making some tea for her.“...It’s quiet here at least.” Fredika says staring out the window while holding the teacup. “...Not so much as when we entered but at least now it is.”
>>28275754"Enjoy it while it lasts dear...some people are gonna have words with you. We will begin after you settle down some more and we have a word with the others."
>>28275754"I'm more at home in a library really, but yes it's quiet. So if I was to tell you that you didn't totally fail in earth defense and that the queens are still alive, how would you take it?"
>>28275754No explanation. Start the summoning ritual. Let's get purple in here!
>>28275754"You sure you don't want to clean up?" then when she says no "Your choice."
>>28275816Yeah, this sounds like the best idea, let's go with this. She's going to need a serious kick in the ass if she is going to be of any use to anyone, may as well give it to her like a bucket of cold water.
>>28275816Seconding she really needs someone to lay into her and get her motivated
>>28275754Quiz her, make sure she is not controlled or something. Also make sure she is focused and understand what is about to happen. Also do it when she she is in mid-sipping.
[1/2]Without saying much, you begin to prepare for the summon Queen ritual.“...What are doing?” Fredika asks you as she just simply stares at you preparing for the ritual for a minute before sighing and shaking her head. “Okarians...” she mutters as she sips her tea.After a few minutes, you continue the ritual to summon Purple. Fredika not even once looking back at what you’re doing the entire time.After summoning Purple, whom is already in her armour, you simply make a small head gesture towards Fredika. Purple looks at Fredika for a few seconds, the silence virtually deafening by itself.“Fredika, I’m extremely disappointed in you.” Purple says behind her.Fredika’s entire body seemed to freeze up like ice before she slowly turns her head back around. “...Purple? Queen Purple!?”“Yes, indeed it’s me.” Purple replies. “I’ve heard what you’ve been doing for the past 326 years. Needless to say I am *extremely* disappointed in you.”Fredika face goes from one of stunned to that of sorrow to full blown crying in rapid order, dropping he teacup as she brings her hands up to her face sobbing. “B-but my Queen! There we so many! I fought as long and as hard as I could, but in the end I failed! I failed in my vow to protect my Queen’s planet!”“Grow up you selfish brat. The loss isn’t solely on your shoulders. It was a combination of many factors, but your failure isn’t one of them. Saying that such a loss is yours and yours alone is practically one of the highest insults I can think of those who have fallen.” Purple says laying into her with no mercy. “Secondly, I warned you against taking vows you cannot keep. The only fault for such a thing is you and you alone.”
[2/2]Fredika’s face goes horrified as she listens to what Purple says to her.“Are you expecting pity? Tough. You certainly do have skills Fredika, and it was those skills that proved a massive boon in the repulsion of the Pride Demon forces we fought nearly 326 years ago. But first and foremost, you’re my knight, and I expect you to act like one at all times. Not to go out and be the drunken prostitute you make yourself out to be now, putting shame on not only your Lord, but the entire Belkarian clan and the Canadian Fighter’s Guild.” Purple tells her.Without saying much else, Fredika simply breaks down in tears and runs for the door, literally crashing through it on the way out of your apartment complex.Purple however has her eyes closed in silent contemplation. Not a single ounce of regret on her face for what she has just done.
>>28276208"Nice speech. I suppose I should make sure she doesn't do anything stupid though.
>>28276208"Sorry you had to do this Purple, now if you don't mind I'll dispell this and run after her. I think we'll be able to talk more later if she get better."Time to run after Fredika.
>>28276208"So what now? Should we wait for her to man up and come back or what?"
>>28276208aaaaaannnnnndddd this is about where we step in to offer a few words of comfort, and tell her to buck up and get ready for round two because it's coming, and we're going to need everyone to be in tip-top shape when it happens.
"Nice speech. I suppose I should make sure she doesn't do anything stupid though.” you reply to Purple.“Leave her.” Purple replies to you.“Pardon?” you ask.“Your words won’t reach her Brooklyn. What Fredika needs to do is take a long hard look at herself. Sure she may take some alcohol, cheap drugs, or prostituting herself. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised at all three. Point is that this is a personal journey Fredika is on, one which will take time. Giving her that time is all that you need to do.” Purple tells you.“Hm...” you say, thinking to yourself.“Ara? Fredika just ran right out of the r-” Shiva stops as she looks around in the corner of your room. “Oh Purple! You’re not dead!”Purple just turns around and meets eye to eye with Shiva. “...What in the name of nine realms are you doing here? Don’t you have heroes to torture?”“Purple, that lost it’s appeal *centuries* ago.” Shiva replies to her while waving a hand. “Going back on your proclaimed duty then?” Purple asks.“Oh my no~.” Shiva merrily replies clapping a pair of hands together.
>>28276525"I guess I'll leave you two alone then... I need to check an old world map..."we do need to transpose those coordinates we got on the location of the unknown who is controlling the Draugr... best deal with it while we are waiting for Fredika to return from her 'journey'...
>>28276525"I'm teaching her daughter philosophy. She's a great student."
>>28276525*facepalm*"Out of the frying pan and into the fire. So much for keeping a secret.">>28276574That gave us a blank, the only coordinate we had was the Draugr and it was just outside the Laminian village.
You simply sigh as you rub your forehead. “Out of the frying pan and into the fire. So much for keeping a secret."“Don’t worry about it Brooklyn. This is one person we can trust at least.” Purple replies to you, before turning back towards Shiva. “What name do you go by these days?”“For this area, Shiva.” Shiva replies as she enters your room.“How fitting.” Purple replies.“Oh I found it one of the more interesting names since coming to this planet.” Shiva replies.“I... I’ll leave you two alone for the time being.” you say getting up and heading out of your room.“...Shiva. I’m wondering if you can do me a favor.” Purple then says.“Hm no can do Purple. As free-spirited as I like to be, I do try to stay out of the major affairs related to other demon kingdoms.” Shiva replies.“No, it isn’t that. It’s more of a... personal favor that only you can really do. It doesn’t politics in any sort of the word.” Purple replies.“Oh~. You Succubi are always such great tempters~.” Shiva says happily.You... Think you’d be happier off not knowing what those two will be talking about.“No! No stop that!” Kyon can be heard yelling inside of the break room.“Oh come on Kyon! Just this one dress! Please!” Stacy/Katlin says. You can’t tell their voices apart yet.“Yes! It’d be the last one I swear!” Stacy/Katlin says.“Guys! Guys! We shouldn’t do this to a Golden Dragon!” Leona says fretting over the circumstances.“Then why are you blushing?” Mina asks with a sly smile.As you turn around and enter the break room, you can see Kyon currently being dressed up in what appears to be a dress for young girls, the twins currently fixing his clothing and straightening his hair a bit. Leona looks on with a flustered blush, all while Mina and Alex simply look on with a smile.
>>28277114Ok. No. We're not doing this. Give the kids his clothes back. Do you have any idea how embarrassing something like that can be? The kids been through enough already, don't you think?
>>28277114"I suppose this gives new meaning to the phrase, hold a dragon for ransom. Also, please stop harassing him, its rather inconsiderate."
>>28277114"Will the nobles please stop kidnapping the poor dragon? Or do I have to find a knight to save him?"
>>28277234Most humorous...Also, whats left on our to-do list?We have the Okerian leader, kinda have the Lamian administrator who may or may not be a chair at present... The Belkerian leader is brewing...Amanda will have to work the Myian leader... The reporters should be our in to the Gemili...All that leaves is the Ayrians and the Aides...It would be most surprising if the Pride Demons don't have the Aide leader broken to them... so that leaves the Ayrians.... What intel we got on them?
>>28277375Actually, it would be important to find out who the Aide leaders mater IS. As they may have had one before the Pride Demons showed up. Also they are an amazing in on the leader.
>>28277375I think the Aide's leader was the one who lead the Church of Pamille and would go shouting it from the rooftops if she found out the queens were alive.The Ayarian leader is a guerilla resistance fighter so she'll be hard to get in touch with especially without drawing suspicion on ourselves and she's fighting the Pride demons anyway..
"Will the nobles please stop kidnapping the poor dragon? Or do I have to find a knight to save him?" you ask everyone in the room.“Oh! I’m a knight!” Mina says raising her hand.“...Please throw me out the window...” Kyon says with a pout.“But he’s such an adorable kid!” Stacy protests.“I’m 217!” Kyon replies.“Which is nothing in dragon years.” Alex replies to Kyon with a smirk.“Seriously take it off. The kid’s already embarrassed enough.” you tell the girls.“But his clothes were filthy!” Stacy comments.“Yes! We promised to give a kiss on the check to the elf if he’d wash the dragons clothes!” Katlin adds.“And he believed you?” you ask the girls.“Every word.” Stacy says with a sweet smile.“You cheeky bitch!” you say with a small laugh. “But seriously, give him something... anything besides that dress he’s wearing now.”“Ooohhh...” both the twins say moping as they head to get new clothes for him.“...Thank you.” Kyon says with a sigh as he puts his glasses back on.
>>28277635I can empathize with your plight.
>>28277635"I was a man not too long ago, now someone is trying to get me to date men."
Alright, this appears to have been a very fruitful thread, so I'm going to call it here for the night.I'll still be on if you want to ask questions or whatever.
>>28277940When is the next one?
>>28277940Did we get DP for the fight or whatever?
>>28277940I have to say that our character progress is rather slow, we barely improved.Are we saving up for something?
>>28278003Yeah, Light at Great! upgrading controls is an unimaginable pain.
>>28278031we need like what 640 for that?(I assume we get 20% discount as an Okarian) and we are sitting at 294 (+what we get for this session).
>>28278073Even should we suddenly get enough points, might I suggest that we not upgrade anything at least until our 'eternally more powerful than us' Draugr clone is completely dealt with.
>>28277965Yup. Will decide on that later.>>28277963Hopefully next week. Got some papers due, but with luck I should have the drafts done early, then once the drafts are done it's just a quick edit for the final.
>>28278226The problem is that we can't really afford not to improve.
>>28278003>>28278031I thought we were going for the aether regen special ability first?
>>28278353you can't buy that. Heck, we can't even get the slow trickle Solar boost because we're a succubut.
>>28278353what he >>28278369 said.I assume you are thinking of AHR Regain X?That one doesn't have a cost and the ability section of DP FAQ says that the abilities without a cost are rare and can't be bought, but earned somehow.
