Across the worlds connected by the sea of dimensions, many magic-using civilizations have thrived. The era of large scale conflicts and weapons of mass destruction have come to pass. The Time-Space Administration Bureau has brought order and peace to the remains of the Belka. However, even in this era of peace, conflict still exists.It is the year 81 of the New Calendar, and a revolution is coming. A cursed poison threatens to destroy the foundation of the modern world. It all started with a book and a ring; this is the fated meeting between the boy, Tohma, and the cursed girl, Lily. The Gospel of the Silver Cross Incident begins now. Between either your new family or your revenge, which will you choose to live on?Follow on Twitter: https://twitter.com/BelkanSniper
So. How are we going to go about using earth magic against flying enemies?
>>29870914How to roll: NFQ uses the Simple Solo System, which means the quest uses a D100 as the base. I will count the first three rolls, unless stated otherwise and if any of them manage to obtain a number lower than the DC stated then it is a success. Sorry for the delay, had to rush the gym to ge back my Cellphone.>>29870949You will get something this thread to help that. 100 is a critical failure and 1 is a critical success.
>>29871209Here is a Stat Sheet, still a prototype. Also difficulty is in White Devil Mode, the shadow of a white death looms over your fate. But first an interlude.
>>29871230You are Rear Admiral Chrono Harlaown, and you want a drink, actually you should just drink your whole secret stash while you at it. That is the only way to deal with the headache this case is becoming. From this moment on you have lost communication with your forces on the ground, add to that the bureaucracy and the interference of the other branches, this was becoming a complicated Incident. To make things worse they had lost that kid, after the interference from the explosion had cleared they had managed to capture some footage of the boy from the Claudia, but the Kid managed to lose them by running for cover in a thick forest. After that some particle released from the explosion was interfering with the Claudia’s sensors, now he could not teleport to the planet from the ship, could not communicate with his men on the ground or even just try to scan for signals of that criminal. Part of your marine detachment was stuck on the world, under the command of Enforcer Camrill, and you could do nothing to offer them aid. >[1/?]
>>29871271You probably should have not sent Enforcer Camrill to the case, but she was the strongest mage you had at hand that could deal with a criminal this dangerous. For the moment your hands were tied, but soon you would fix that. The remaining marine detachment in the ship was not equipped to handle an orbital drop that is why the Dimensional Navy HQ had sent him the closes forces that could serve as reinforcements. The combat transport ship Aquilla, and with it the best Orbital Diver Squadron in the whole Navy, the Comets. How funny, this would be the first time in 20 years that the TSAB would be forced to rain men on one of their core world.
>>29871282Soon an armed squad of trained space marines would descend from the heavens on that punk kid and wipe him out from the face of the planet. Well maybe not to that extreme, but the Comet Squadron would soon descend to aid the Enforcer and the ground troops in cornering that kid. You hoped this would be the end of the case, but you knew it would not be that simple. It never was that simple. But at least you managed to contact Commander Yagami (your friend, Hayate), and in a week the elite Special Duty Section 6 made to deal with these sorts of cases would arrive. You just hope that things do not escalate in the meantime. >[3/3]
>Now for the real quest start.... Your name is Tohma Avenir… and you probably have become a wanted man by the TSAB. There is no other choice after you blew up that lab (“and a mountain range,” Steed told you earlier) after you saved that girl. Oh, you can already think how your friends and family will react when they find out.Your sisters will be sad. Su-chan will probably kill you! But the worse thing would probably be Vivio, you really do not want to see her crying face. The White Devil will murder you. It is best to not think about such things. >[1/?]
>>29871351After rescuing the girl, whose name you learned after was Lily, some weird reaction happened and everything went white. When you came to be, the whole lab you had broken in had been reduced into a crater. It was like that silver light had consumed everything, the land, the lad and nearby humans, and left nothing, except you and an unconscious naked silver haired girl. Then you decided to run, luckily you had a spare blanket in your backback to cover the lady, while you carried her in your back towards the forest, you needed to make some distance from the explosion site. The journey had been three hours long, and you had covered some surprising 30 kilometers in this terrain while caring the girl (where you getting stronger?) and erasing your tracks with spells, but finally you had made enough distance from the ruins that you decided to make a camp. It was getting dark and you were tired.With magic it was easy, you just had to rip apart solid rock and make a cave, then use part of the materials to cover part of the exit. Piece of cake. >[2/3]
>>29871362The girl had only woken for some moments at the camp before she had fallen asleep. At least you had managed to get her name, Lily, feed her and dress her in some of your spare clothing. You do not think that you will get anything out of her until tomorrow morning. The sight of such a cute girl in your shirt made you fell weird, but it was not a bad feeling. You really should not be thinking that. The last thing was the silver ring on your arm, when you concentrated on it, it summoned some sort of gunblade and a black book (along with a weird message). It seems like you could not remove the bracelet for some reason. Now that you had camp set, you were going to: >It is night and the Camp will last hidden until the next day, sleep. >Talk to Steed about what to do next (and why he reacted so weird about those rifles). >Check the silver ring on your right hand, along the gunblade and the black book. >Wake the girl, try to find out what is happening.
>>29871379>Talk to Steed about what to do next (and why he reacted so weird about those rifles).
>>29871414Will wait 10 mins for another vote before writting, but thanks for playing.
>>29871430Welp,I am impatient, so writing.
>>29871414>>29871504You turn to your companion, your Intelligent Device, Steed, right now he was your only ally in what had happened, so you feel the need to ask him what to do.“Steed, the lab… we blew it up, right?” It was an obious question, but you really still could not believe that had happened, or even ponder how that had happened. [Yes, buddy, it seams that liberating Miss Lily from her capture had started some sort of self-destruct sequence in the Lab, prompting that explosion.] Steed was to the point, there was no use to sugar-coat things for his master, now was the time for them to decide what to do. “Steed, do you think… that the TSAB might now that we were involved?” That probably was your greatest fear. If the TSAB started to chase you down it might be possible that one day Su-chan, on officer, might become your enemy.Would you dare to fight Su-chan for the sake of saving a girl? Before you can ponder that question, Steed helps you. [It is quite possible, the TSAB has several Satelites and Spaceships in orbit of the planet, one might have been able to capture you attacking the lab or escaping the aftermath of the explosion. The possibility that the TSAB might be after you is quite high.] >[1/?]
>>29871648No surprise there, then the question should be, “Steed, what do you think we should do now.” [The best option might be to turn ourselves to the TSAB, if only to avoid a confrontation with them. If you feel that you might need someone to help you, then go to the Belkan Church nearby to use their relay communicator to ask Su-chan to mediate for you]. You had no love for the bureacrasy of the TSAB, they were the ones who had shelved the case of your village and had left their deaths unpaid. If you were alone you might not have problem just turning yourself in to the authorities, but what about Lily? Would the TSAB really help her, or would they conscript her to become a mage and force her to the same things that had been done to her in the Labs. There were many stories like that in the dimensional sea, about mages forced to fight for the TSAB, and you had no desire to do that to Lily. But still you were not sure you could handle fighting the TSAB.“Are there no other options, Steed?” >[2/?]
>>29871701[You might need be able to go to the city, Port Town, from there you might find some clues about what has happened and resupply, also the spaceport would not be too far, maybe it would be possible to get off planet.]“I… do not know what to do….” You had no idea what was right. It probably was better to just turn yourself to the TSAB, but…If you did that it would mean to put a stop to your revenge.Could you live letting the deaths of your family unanswered? No. Still, once again, Steed had managed to break your hesitation, [Tohma, buddy, do not worry, no matter what happens I will respect your choice. I am your device, as long as you need me, I will serve you to open all paths for you.] Once again you are glad Su-chan gave you this device... I see, then there was no need to think about it right now, he would just choose in the morning, still there was something that bothered you. >[3/4]
>>29871727“Steed, those rifles those guards were using, do you know something about them?” Steed has acted weird when he had seen those rifles, maybe he knew something about them and about who those guys where. [I… Tohma, I need to review my database some more… I am not sure about the information I recovered from them. Please give me more time.] Steed, is there something about those rifles that is worrying you? Still you choose to respect the wishes of your friend and stopped the inqueries. It was getting quite late, what are you going to do now: >It is night and the Camp will last hidden until the next day, sleep. >Check the silver ring on your right hand, along the gunblade and the black book. >Wake the girl, try to find out what is happening. >[4/4]
>>29871769>Check the silver ring on your right hand, along the gunblade and the black book
>>29871871You concentrate on the silver right on your right arm, and the weapons it gave you. Instantly, in a silver flash two weapons appeared in your hands, one was a silver gun blade, the Divider 996, and then a black book (The Gospel of the Silver Cross some part of you whispered to your mind). The gunblade looked like someone had taped a blade to a revolver, and just looked plain silly, while the book refused to open even if you tried to force it. But that was not the strangest thing about those items, the strangest thing was that you knew how to use them. You feel that you can use that gunblade to cut apart your foes easily, and even cast shooting magic with a mere thought. The Book, you could use it to call gran rituals of destruction. Honestly, that scared you, just what was this ring Lily gave you. It is getting really late, and you were tired. Still, you will: >Try to use one your new weapons. >Go to Sleep>Wake Lily and talk to her, if so about what?
>>29871972>Go to Sleep
>>29872052That night while you sleep, you dream of: > Your hometown.> Meeting Su-chan> Two colored eyes> The night before you left on your journey> Your loss in the Inter-Middle
>>29872058> The night before you left on your journey
>>29872084Anon, I love you... you choose my favorite one of these.... >Writting.
>>29872084That night you dream of the past, of a time before you had started this journey or had met Lily. You dream of the night before all of this started. You would have to leave the early the next day, the trip to Ruwella would take too long and you had no time to waste. Yet a friend had called you to this place, inside the autonomous zone of the Saint Church, a place where the TSAB would not interfere. Standing on a small ledge was your friend, the one who had called you. Green hair, eyes of two colors, clad in Knight Armor, she was the descendant of an Ancient Belka King, and the heir to the Kaiser Arts. But to you she was your friend, Einhard, also part of your family. When you finally reach her, she turn towards you, her eyes fully judging you. “Tohma… you are planning to leave tomorrow right?” Even though it is a question, you did not bother to answer her, she already knew. “Then, why did you not tell me that you were planning to leave the planet for six months?” She is angry, angry at losing a friend once again, angry at the friend who had just wanted to leave her.How do you answer to the King before you? >I did not want to see you cry…>There was no need to say anything>Do not apologize…>Write IN?
>>29872171Forgot the pic....
>>29872171>I did not want to see you cry…
>>29872171>I did not want to see you cry…>> I'll come back to you
>>29872212>>29872202>>29872196There is not excuse, to be honest, you had only told Su-chan that you had planned to leave. You did not want to see any of your friends or family being saddened for you. You knew if you did that you would instantly hesitate and lose all hesitation about your trip. You could not afford that, if you wanted to move on, you needed to do this. So gathering your measly courage you face Ein, your eyes meting hers, “I just did not want to see you cry” You are being honest, the most honest you have ever been to someone. Then again, you were always the most honest with this girl. “Eh…” Ein seems surprised, as she takes a step back. “Eh… you.. you idiot, did you not think that I w-.. that the others would not be sad if you suddenly disappeared? Think about Vivio, she would cry if you just left her.” Now Eins seems really angry, well she is the type of person that can show the greatest kindness to others.That was why you liked her.
>>29872274“I am sorry, I can only promise to come back for you… and the others.” You are being sincere, there is nothing that will stop you. You will steel your resolve and face your friend. At your response Einhard is silent, there is a silent moment before the king rises again to face you. “Tohma then tell me, why are you leaving?” Her face is stone, her eyes hard, and her fist is ready to be raised… she will judge your answer and like a king discern the truth. Still, why ask this, Ein of all people should understand… still how do you answer…>”Genya offered to adopt me, I just want some time to think about it” >”I want to just get over what happened to my hometown…” >”I want to go on a training trip, I hate being weak…”>”I want to try finding the ones who killed my family, before everyone’s kindness makes me forget.”
>>29872288Sorry guys, I have to take a break for two hours, I have a class soon, I will retake the quest when I get back, so please make sure it does not die in the mean time. While I am gone please take some time to think about this. Last thread you were awarded 10 Evolution eXperience Points….Decide on one of these three skills to purchase.>Infight IAdd +10 to DC to actions involving CQC and Melee Attacks (including spells). >Gunfight I Add + 10 DC to actions involving to ranged attacks, including Shooting and Bombardment spells.>Prevail I Add bonus stats the less health you have and ignores part of the wound penalties, at this level you gain at 1 HP you gain a + 15 DC bonus.
>>29872288>”I want to go on a training trip, I hate being weak…”>”I want to try finding the ones who killed my family, before everyone’s kindness makes me forget.”
>>29872288Combination of these:>”Genya offered to adopt me, I just want some time to think about it” >”I want to go on a training trip, I hate being weak…”I've got a feeling Tohma would never be able to get over his family's death easily, and at the same time, he can't just use that solely as a reason to leave.Some time alone to think about things would be nice, just to put his thoughts in order. Of course, getting strong while he's at it is an added bonus.If it just so happens that he runs into the people responsible for his family's death, so help him God...OOC: Nice to have you back OP. Are we seriously now in Vivio Harem White Devil difficulty?
>>29872579Yes, that is why nanoha hates you, you made Vivio cry....
>>29873224Well, there's only one way to fix that.A love confession.And since we might as well talk about this. Do you guys see Prevail l as being useful? I'm not to sure about it myself.
>>29873341As it seems like OP is using SRW-styled skills, we can at least make a good guess on them.For Tohma, I think Infight might pay off faster than Gunfight, as he probably won't master the Silver Cross's spells or the Divider's gun mode that easily unless we go full ECLIPSE.Prevail is useful when we're tough enough to tank hits. Also works when battles start to drag longer and for winding up a come-from-behind victory.Doesn't work if we get one-shotted/nat 100 though.I'm for picking Infight.Us ganking guards with just a heat knife last episode went pretty well, I wonder how good we will be with a gunblade?
Back, will start writting soon, but let me answer some questions...>>29873341A love confession... to who? Vivio already confessed and Tohma accepted. Tohma thinks of Ein as his best friend and family. Even though Ein is the one that wants the two of them.... >>29873421You are mostly right, Infight/Gunfight are skills that will pay off intermediately, while Prevail is one that will become good while you invest more in it and take more damage. Between Infight/Gunfight, Infight will pay off faster, as you have a Higher Body Stat than a DEX stat (check the stat sheet), which means generally melee attacks will have a higher DC than Shooting spells. >>29873341Prevail is a skill that becomes better with more investment (more levels), currently it starts working at 40%HP, giving you +5DC, then at 20% giving you +10 DC and at 1 HP you get the total +15, this changes when as you level it more (getting more bonuses and earlier) and it turns into Abnormal Survivor at 1HP, which makes you wreck things pretty easily. For Infight/Gunfight, leveling them more will give you extra rolls, the ability to negate crit-fails, more damage, extra range for skills, and some other bonuses.
>>29872579This is good insight at Tohma's character, I really like that you guys are paying attention. Do note that black text is the hidden thoughts that Tohma does not dare to even admit to himself, that fact that he can tell something like that to Ein is a sign of how much he trusts her. >>29872579>>29872308Writting.... will take a while.
>>29873674Man Belkan, you're crazy helpful for a GM.Alright I'll side with >>29873421 and pick infight.We'll see how it goes.
>>29873727Well, these few first threads are some sort of Tutorial for you guys, there are certain systems that I have not introduced yet, like the extra dice system aka the Infection Level, or the Re-roll Mechanic, Relationship Break. To be honest, I have not unlocked them because I have to test them some more in my head... Do check the Stat Sheet, the base DCs for stuff is generally the Stat plus modifiers (skills and difficulty), so generally you can get a good idea of what will work better if you check the stat sheet.
>>29873718There are no excuses for what you want to do, the only choice you have is to just face Ein head on and be honest with her. Just like Vivio taught you when you met the girl. “Ein… Genya asked me if he wanted to adopt me, he asked me to become his son and take the Nakajima name, I- I want to take some time to think about it, that is why I am not.” This Einhard Statos could understand, a long time ago she had been given the same choice when she had come into the custody of the Nakajimas. She had been grateful to them, but in the end she had rejected their offer. She had to carry the name of the bearer of the Kaiser Arts. That is the only way she felt that she could find purpose. But still… “Tohma, are you sure that is the only reason you want to leave like this?” >[1/?]
>>29873930You had another reason, and even had one that you did not want to admit to yourself. “Ein… to be honest, I also want to take this opportunity to go on a training trip... I hate being weak,” Your voice cracks, but you steel yourself. You will not cry but you will not hide, at least not from her. “…that is why I will take this chance to go on a training trip, to become stronger like you.” You hated that fact, that at the end of the day all your effort was for nothing, that even now you were no closer to be able to protect what you held dear.Before someone takes it from you… you want to protect it yourself. This Einhard Stratos could understand, the only one of her friends who understood that was Tohma. He was the only one who understood that sin that was called weakness. He was the only one who understood what it meant to be too weak to protect something dear. Vivo and the others practiced and trained for the sake of becoming better itself, for them the mere fact that they could reach their full potential probably was enough, but Tohma understood that part of her heart, the part that still wanted to become stronger whatever the cost, because she did not want to lose someone again. But even though she understood him, she only had one thing to respond, “Liar” >[2/?]
>>29874151You could only stare in shock, why would she think that, but the girl before him continued.“If it was just that, you could have still stayed there with us…” She had not time to hesitate, and for once in her life she could, no had to be this honest with a person she cared for, “If you wanted to deal with your adoption, who is better than Vivio to help you, she already understand what it means to belong to a family not related by blood.” She will not have mercy, because she cared for him she had to be this direct. “If you just wanted to train more, then you could have trained alongside me,” For a moment she paused before correcting herself, “…and Vivo, we could have worked together to become stronger. Together.” She stares at you, her eyes piercing your soul. Each of her points piece your heart like stakes made of truth, but still this girl had not ended. “Do not lie to me, Tohma Avenir!” You now realize your error, the King before you did not just inherit the Kaiser Arts from her ancestors, she also inherited the wisdom of a King, the ability to discern into the heart of others. The next part comes softly, carried with a tenderness that this girl had only shown you a number of times you could count in one hand, “The truth is… you want to find the ones who killed your family right?” How do you respond: >Accept, even so I will go. >Deny her, she is wrong. >Thank her, for being so kind. >Get angry, how dare she!>Write In.
>>29874381>Accept, even so I will go.
>>29874454Will wait for one more vote or ten more minutes...
>>29874381>Accept, even so I will go.Vivio has her past (of sorts) as Olivie Sagebrecht.Einhart herself has her past as Claus Ingvalt.In the same vein, Tohma has his own past during that attack on his village.Einhard should know how important their past could be. He can't just run away or ignore it, Touma would have to face it sooner or later.And in this case, sooner.(And, uh, apologize to Einhard for lying too, I guess.)
>>29874454>>29874557>Writting, question how good is this flashback thing... I am unsure if I am getting Ein right.>>29874557Also, you have good insight, I do like when the players analyze the characters.
>>29874843So far so good on the flashback.It's not like there's an actual event you can base it off, so all you have is Einhard's characteristic of being "cool on the outside and caring in the inside".
>>29874843For some moments you just stand there, gasping for air. This girl, she pierced your half assed excuses and dared to strike the truth that you did not even dare to tell yourself. You try to think what to say, try to get angry at her, try to find some excuse to deter her from that point, just anything to try to counter what she said, but that is useless. Once opened a wound can never be closedSo you take a deep breath, calming your heart, and meet her once again. “Ein… You are right.” You won’t bother her with the details of the disappearances of villages in Ruwella in cases similar to yours. That is not important. What is important is the reason you will leave. “ I have some clues of the men who destroyed my village, finally I have something… that is why,” Before your kindness dulls me, before it erases my hate, “I will go!” >[1/?]
>>29875091The girl makes no noise, she stands silently, judging your works, trying to decide what to do, “If you find them… Tohma, what will you do?” Compared to the accusation from before this question feels weak to you, she should already know the answer. You will make them pay. The method will not matter, be it by sword, by magic, by whatever means you will settle the debt. “You already know Ein, do not make me say it.” The King before you fades, as the girl beneath just shakes, her eyes are tearing, and her body and her fists are shaking. To her this is painful. To her, seeing her dear friend reduced to this is too painful, but at the same time she understands. To him this is the only way he has to deal with his past, and the traumatic events that led him to meet her. He probably feels he had no other choice and is hesitant to rely on others. That is why he wants to leave, but before she must do something. But before…
>>29875117“Ein, I am sorry.” You continue, “I am sorry for lying to you, about this, about trying to leave.” About being so weak to desire for revenge. To this girl you should be always honest, after all, you promised to be always truthful to one another. Ein says nothing, before taking a deep breath. She then raises her fists and takes a stance. The air suddenly changes and you, instinctively tense your body, as your right hand draws your device. “If you want to continue then I will stop you, Tohma, I won’t allow you to become a killer, I won’t allow you to make the others cry!” Magic starts gathering in her fists, this is the pinnacle of magical combat, the techniques that have passed since ancient times, the Kaiser Arts. “If to stop you I have to break you so be it. If I have to make you hate me to protect you, then so be it.” Her device, Leo, gives a chime as it jumps from behind her, landing on her shoulder. Instantly, the words ‘Safety Relief’ appeared before the push cat who then smashed them.The safeties in her magic are gone, from now on the King before you is fighting for real, to the death. >[3/5]
>>29875345You do not bother to waste time, and instantly your barrier jacket forms. In your right hand is a pile bunker and a shield, in your left is your power fist, this is the armor your device gave you, the armor of a miner. Between you there is no need for words, you have your position and Ein has hers. As you raise your shield and load a cartridge and Eins takes a step.,Under the blue moon that looks so big that one could punch it,As you get ready to face your friend,…you only think one thing. Tonight, Eins looks beautiful. >[4/5]
>>29875360The next day has come, and with it gone is the dream of a night important to you. The past is the past, there is nothing that can change it. Even though you did what you did, you only have the future before you. You wake early, taking care to check around the cave it looks like there are no sign of anyone following you. Lily is still sleeping, and you have already prepared breakfast for you two, you are only waiting for the girl to wake. You have some free time, what do you do:>Wake Lily yourself, and eat breakfast with her while you two talk. >Check the gun and the book.>Talk to Steed about what to do?>Ask Steed to tune in to the local news? >Set camp early and head somewhere else?
>>29875396>Ask Steed to tune in to the local news? Knowledge, power etc.
>>29875487Will wait ten more minutes, also chose a nickname that the TSAB will give Tohma, based on what they know so far. Current Default: Silverion.
>>29875396>Talk to Steed about what to do?Then,>Ask Steed to tune in to the local news?Let's not fiddle with the gunblade and the book without asking the Lily for anything regarding them.Plot a possibly route towards the nearest town as well.Suggesting "Silberkreuz" for the TSAB handle for Tohma.
>>29875589Silver Cross eh... I like it.>>29875487Writting.
Wise Up 02- The New You. Good Morning wielder of the black grimoire, I just want to write you about the new powers you have obtained from the black book and the girl. I am sure you have felt it, your body has changed, and you have gained the power to wield an unique weapon, a Divider. Its true purpose is not something you can use right now, but that weapon is very valuable, be careful in its use, as long as you have it and the “poison” in your blood you can become a true Mage Killer. I was going to write you about the other powers your infection gives you but it seems like someone is interfering with their development in you. Still you should be able to access some part of it, so there might be a way for you, yourself, to unlock the rest of those powers. Without the power to react, you won’t be able to survive what is coming. Just what is that broken girl thinking? Tohma, become strong. That is the only way to survive as what you have become. Take care, my little raven.
>>29875614>>29875589Lily is probably tired, and she has been crying in her sleep this whole time, so it might be better to give her more time to rest. Turning to Steed you ask him what to do right now. [Buddy, the situation has not changed much from last time, we can go to the city, Port Town, to try to find more supplies, better clothing for Lily and maybe some more information about what has happened. Finding allies might be possible and in a best scenario we might be able to even find a way to the space port from there, on the other hand it is probable that the TSAB already has forces there, so I caution you to be careful.]“And what if we went to the Church nearby?” [We might be able to communicate with Subaru-san from there and ask her to negotiate with the TSAB for us. In a worst case scenario the church knights there would capture, but that would mean that you would be in the custody of the Belkan Church and not the TSAB.] In other words it would mean that Vivio would own you and your fate… that is not funny.
>>29875739Ask just what everyone is doing about this. What are the TSAB doing, what's the Church doing, how are people in general taking this?`
>>29875770>gotta go IC
>>29875770>>29875781 You will get that in the next part, when you tune in the radio...
>>29875739“Steed, can you tune in the local radio, we might find something there.” Your device does not bother to reply, as he raises his arms-strings and tunes in to a local frequency, he displays a holo screen near where you sit, allowing you to tune in to nearby radio. There is not much relating to the incident, the only thing that the TSAB is officially saying is that, the explosion occurred from a malfunction of a magic reactor they were testing, and that there were none harmed. This is media control from the TSAB, probably trying to not alarm its citizens. From what you can get from the other local stations is that there is a general sense of panic in the people, most are worried about the huge explosion and some do not even believe what the TSAB is saying. You do stop bothering with local stations, and you hijack the signals and enter the TSAB’s private network. Never let it be said that your mechanical sisters never taught you anything useful. >[2/3]
>>29875934“Warning, all forces continue their search for the presumed suspect, codenamed ‘Silberkreuz’.” The holo-screen shows a basic sketch of you, “he is accompanied by an unidentified girl. The suspect is armed and dangerous, his combat rank is now designated to be AA-Rank, we advise all officers to approach with caution.”The radio channel changes, as another signal enter Steed, “… to all Navy Marines, orders are to tighten the net around the area, we can’t allow the criminal to escape. It is our duty to pass judgment. I expect this man to be found ASAP, and as an Enforcer I expect no less…” Before you can continue, a voice enters your mind <I’m sorry…> Immediately, you turn around, to face the sleeping girl who just woke. She is still too weak to stand by herself, so all she manages is to sit on your sleeping bag. <Because of me, those guys are now after you.” Her faces turns to a frown, as she seems truly sad that you are suffering because of her. You do not know what to do, but you must answer Lily and cheer her up.>Write In?>Say that it does not matter.>Tell her that helping her was worth it. >Tell her you do not mind being a criminal anyway? >[3/3]
>>29875949Just shrug, say, "We should get going. They're searching through the forest. We stay here, only a matter of time." Then, pack up, eat/feed her(if we haven't yet), and get going deeper into the forest. Also ask Steed if he can come up with some kind of warning if they're about to stumble upon a squad. For now, let's head to either port town or Church, whichever is closer.
>>29875949>Tell her that helping her was worth it.Besides that, it was our choice to help her, in the end.
>>29876021>>29875985You do not know what to tell her, so just tell her what you feel, “Lily, I helped you because it was my choice, so do not worry. No matter what happens I think that helping you was worth it.” You crouch before the girl, “So do not let me catch you saying that you are not worthy of being helped.” Because if you aren’t, then what am I. The girl stares at you silent, as if that concept you told her was foreign for her, but you do not have the time to stop now. “Anyhow, we have to get going. They are searching the forest, and we have to go before they find us.” You manage to set up camp, feed Lily and even manage to help Steed to hack the TSAB signals to get some idea of the last calls of their agents in record time, thus now it is time to set out from the camp.>[1/2]
>>29876177It is still early in the morning, just before a bit before seven. It does not look that way. Over your head, in the sky an oppressive thunderstorm has formed. The dark clouds have covered the blue sky and it still feels like it is still night.Somehow you feel like the heavy storm is judging you, and is finding you wanting in some way. You feel wary of what might happen. So, what do you do? The distance from your camp and the two locations is not that different, and from the map Steed gave you it looks like you might be able to open your way to both areas, but it might be a good idea to stay in the forest, and try to fight the TSAB and then break away. No matter what you choose, you must consider that Lily is still weak and you must carry her, and that will prevent you from sneaking too much, however your newfound strength (viral powers said the message) can still manage to carry her with no problems. >Go to City>Go to the Church>Hide again. Will be taking a half hour break for a moment, please vote.
>>29876213First choice would be following canon, I hope, while the other would be facing the wrath of the Church Knights, and quite possibly Vivio by extension.As much as I want to screw with canon, I don't know if heading to the church would lead to a Kaiser Dojo moment...
>>29876213Go to the church. If we really are infected, going to an area of dense population will only make the situation worse. If we go to the church, ask to speak to the TSAB person, perhaps we can resolve this situation without anyone else dying.The goals, as I see them, are as follows>Happiness of the innocent>Happiness of the whole population>Personal happiness/satisfactionWe already took care of the first one by helping the girl. The second one we need to do by avoiding a place of high-population and getting this resolved WITHOUT a full-scale planetary invasion, and the last one we can solve by getting revenge.
>>29876293Nuts, I haven't reviewed the manga yet...Won't be meeting a certain Squall lookalike if we head immediately to the Church?
>>29876213>Go to the ChurchFlying through the plot double speed>>29876273Please, try not to meta game
>>29876332I dunno. I just know that, based on those priorities I tossed up there, going to the church is the best choice. Some careful words, a certain degree of honesty, and an adherence to those priorities will make ways out open up most often.
>>29876273Church is Kaisah Dojo, but that is a bog clusterfuck....
>>29876340>>29876293>>29876273So the Church it is, please roll me a D100 to see is you are found, DC is 55>30 +15(Skill)+ 10 (Steed) + 10 (???) - 10 (Lily)
>>29876965It's a DC10, actually, after bonuses...so...
>>29876976>It's a DC10, actually, after bonuses...so...No, this is a roll under, so bonuces add to your DC,and penalties reduce it.
>>29877008Oh, so that's how you got that. Righto.
>>29877030Also the base DC is the Dex stat, 30...
Rolled 2>>29877049Which makes sense. Sorry 'bout that.
>>29877064>>29877021>>29876994>Great Success, you avoided a clusterfuck and an instant bad end... Vivio is kinda sad yet happy at the same time, writting.
>>29877064Did I just crit on my first correct roll here?
>>29877101Close, still it is almost the same at this point. But be happy, you managed to avoid a disaster...
>>29877101Close but nope. 1 and 100's are the crits here (it was how we died first thread after all. And that was pre White Devil!)
>>29877166Just wait, you did a great job.... >>29877167Hi Spectral, nice to see you here.
>>29877190Mine was that big ol post up there. Not that you have to really go with it, but if you want some ideas on where I was goin with this...Lawful Good ftw
>>29877252Oh you mean the three point thing... well you are in luck, all three can be solved there.
>>29877094>>29877252There are no other options, in the worst case scenario the Church is probably a better place to escape from than the city, so deciding your route, you start your journey. You manage to make record time, staying one step ahead of the TSAB and each time a patrol neared you, you speed up and managed to escape the TSAB’s net. You feel that this is easy, too easy. But you have no time to worry, you have to get to the church fast to avoid the TSAB. Crossing the forest, you enter the plains where the Church is located. This is the same church that received you so many times these past few months, a home away from home for you. Carring Lily, you manage to head to the entrance and enter. Rows of pews from a path to an altar, there in glass, is the form of the Saint Kaiser. How funny, she looked nothing like VIvio, but still you appreciated the beauty of this church. <So pretty> Even Lily agrees with you, it seems that the stained glass has made her cheer up with its beauty. >[1/2]
>>29877431“I see so really you did come here, Mr. Avenir” Eh, you turn around, there standing at the door is Sister Magdalena, the head Sister of this outpost. This is skill, the skill of a knight that has managed to avoid detection by you. “Mr. Avenir, you were recommended by me by Cardinal Carim and are a friend of the reborn Saint Kaiser that is the only reason I have not called my fellow Knights. You have one minute to explain, why are you so suddenly considered a AA-Rank criminal by the TSAB? Do so before I am forced to capture you.” She raises her weapon, a battle cross, a whip made to destroy not the flesh but the will to fight. The Sister is mad, you better explain: >Write in? >I saved this girl>I did what I did>I have no time, the TSAB is after me.
>>29877456>I did what I felt was right. I can explain more later, but for now, the current situation must be resolved before the TSAB gets violent.
>>29877456>I saved this girlNO time to be cagey Tohma.We have to void fights whenever we can.
>>29877456>I did what I felt was right. I saved this girl
>>29877526>>29877556>>29877566I see, well roll a Charisma check. DC is 55>30 (MND) + 10 (Lily) + 10 (Carim) +15 (Vivio's love) - 10 (Crimes)... You are kinda lucky you choose this, then again you will need it.
Rolled 63>>29877605Rolling for being Dio.
Rolled 20>>29877605White Devil route is full charisma route
Rolled 22>>29877605WOO Let's try this~
Rolled 88>>29877645>>29877651>>29877631Congrats, checking and writting. Great Sucess in Char
>>29877707Wohooo, but not this update....
>>29877741>>29877651You have no other weapon but the truth, there is no time to be too cagy with authority, you need help and now. “Sister, I just saved this girl, she was being used as a lab subject at a lab hidden in the ruins near the mountains.” You turn to the side, making sure that Lily stared at the Sister. Yes, the innate cuteness that Lily has would win the heart of even the most evil of men. Yes, cute is justice too. The Saint Kaiser (reborn) taught you that personally! “I did what I had to do, but please help us before the TSAB gets violent.” The sister turns silent, taking a moment to consider things, that girl is cute, really cute but that won’t influence your judgement. “Very well, Mr. Avenir, the Belkan Church has always been willing to offer shelter to those in need, nevertheless I need you to do something for me beforehand.“Tohma Avenir, turn yourself into the custody of the Belkan Church of the Saint Kaiser. If you do, the state promises you to support you in your judicial defense against the TSAB If what you say is true, furthermore in the worst case, we will offer you shelter to you within the autonomous territory of the Church.” A good offer, but what she is not saying is that by turning yourself to the church you become a ward of it, expected to become a Belkan Knight, one of Vivio’s Knights. What do you do? >Accept, you need the help.>Decline, maybe you can negociate? >Make a counter offer: Write-In? >Ask for more time to think
>>29878081>Accept, you need the help.I have no clue how things will go
Rolled 14>>29878081>Accept it...some careful stepping and a few rule exploits can land us some professional training, respectable authority, and with some sucking up to Vlvio we can still get our personal vengeance...if we play our cards right. Then we can come back, vengeance satisfied, and have a respectable career that takes advantage of our acquired skills just waiting for us. The hard part will be the girl and hiding the ring....though perhaps we could open up to Vlvio about those, explain their usefulness, and become one damned good peacekeeper.
>>29878081>Accept, you need the help.
Rolled 69>>29878183>>29878197Not a bad deal, really, but remember that VIvio is not the current head of the Church, so she has no actual authority now, so it might not be as good as you think. (Though Carim would bend to please Vivio is she wanted something enough, like you.) checking something...
Rolled 1 + 30>>29878259Give me a San Check.... DC is this roll. There is a Squall coming to town....
Rolled 49>>29878294Is that good or bad? <_>
Rolled 64>>29878294>Dat rollWhat the hell
>>29878309You need a crit 1 to beat it... jikes this is bad for you guys... did I do it wrong?

>>29878448OH SWEET JEBUS
>>29878448No one touch anything!
>>29878294A Squall is comming!! >>29878353San Check, Failure, but not a crit Failure.Infection Level > 50% +1 Dice >The Infection Refuses to rise??? >All Rolls will receive Rage Penalties!!! >>29878448Guard Sucess, you saved a precious life!
>>29878448Ain't going to roll with this passing
>>29878557>Writting, be happy you managed a minimal failure there, if you had a bad roll it would have been TERMINATOR Tohma...
>>29878618Ohhhhhhhhh shit. ^^;Does...that mean my plan of peaceful resolution was shot to hell, then?
>>29878656Well... lets say that this is going to become a clusterfuck... a total one.
>>29878656I don't mind this. While the offer is nice, I think reaming around as a fugitive for a while would be more interesting.
>>29878689Do not feel that bad, that is a good thing that you managed to get a 3 on a San Check, otherwise it would have been bad... really bad.
>>29878557>>29878618There is no need to reconsider, while becoming a ward of the Belkan Church might not really appeal to you that much, you still have to conside Lily. The Belkan Church has the authority to negotiate with the TSAB and if needed they would help lend your word weight with their political power. Plus becoming Vivio’s knight could not be that bad, you were sure that Ein planned to do something similar in the future. So the choice is clear, “Very well, Sister Magdalena, I will accept your offer.” You take the Sister’s hand, as both her device, the battle cross and Steed shine in light as they register the contract. Now this has become a lawful contract, one that either party may summit as proof as long as they held their devices. As you let go of the Sister’s hand and set Lily on a pew so she can rest, you begin to relax. With the help of the Church you might not come out of this smelling like Roses with the TSAB, but at least you think that you will come out of it alive. Plus it might not be so bad to be a knight for the church, right?
>>29878845>Happy End????It's Mismarca all over again!
>>29878845>>29878901Take this as the happy end for now... from now on it is a wild ride, unless the dice god loves you guys.
>>29878929>unless the dice god loves you guys.Pfft, the only one who likes us less than the dice right now is Nanoha.
>>29878929>canon successfully derailedI'd say my work was done here, but oohhhhhh no...no no no...the work is only just beginning.
>>29878845But that feeling does not last, before you can sing your happy ending theme, suddenly and violently the left wall of the church suddenly explodes. Suddenly a man walks into the church from the hole, clad in leather, fur and a bad attitude, the man walks towards the center of the church, while talking, “Hey brat, you know how much time I have wasted tracking you. After doing something as stupid as blowing a mountain, you could have had the decency to keep making noise so I could find you faster.” You do not even bother to hear what the man is saying. You do not even register the fact he just blew up the church, the only thing that you can see is his right sleeve. The tattoo of blue wings. The same blue wings of those two who had destroyed your home town. THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN THIS MAN You will kill him, with no mercy, no hesitation, and no consideration. This was your kill. “Hey kid, hand them other, that divider you stole and that broke plug! Those things are no toys.” He add, while raising his hand toward you, demanding something of value. Who cares, the only thing you know in your heart is that you will kill this man. >[2/3]
>>29879146YOUDIRTYLYINGMOTHERFUCKERI THOUGHT WE WERE SAFEI FUCKIN THOUGHT WE WERE SAFEFUUUUUUU
>>29879189okie i'm good. :3
>>29879146>THIS MANThe time has come.
>>29879189The dice man.... they hated you guys...
>>29879377>we Eren Yaeger nao
>>29879146But before you start, the sister interposes herself between you and that man, raising her whip weapon, and she prepare to smite the one who desecrated her church. “You heathen, I will never forgive you!” Her whip lashes, faster than sound striking the man… only to break! No, it was struck before it reached the man. The man in black raises his hand, showing a blade that you find familiar, a Divider just like yours, a gunblade!!! “Woman do not bother us, this is between the kid and me!” He points his gun at the sister, black energy gathering at the tip ready to shoot. >[3/4]
>>29879433>ErenNah, more like Gon Freecss during his second encounter with Pitou.
>>29879577But it never happens, because before he can even fire you cross the distance and slash his arm. His severed limb flies into the air along his weapon, but before you could stab him with your gunblade, he grabbed his dropped weapon blocking your attack before you could end this. But, instantly you jump back, as the air around you combusts into raging hellfire. “Fated Circle!” The remaining of the altar and the church is blown and now it starts burning. You retreat, landing before the Sister and Lily, glaring death a the man while he reattaches (?) his sliced arm. “Boy, that is sure a good greeting, let me give you one back!” The man grins, as he loads another bullet inside his shotgun-blade and prepares another spell. You no longer care for the nun, for the burning church or the fact that the TSAB might be coming with this commotion, even Lily barely registers in your mind. In this world there is only that man and you, and there was no space for both. Actions: Choose any or all? >Ask the Sister to leave with Lily.>Ask for Reinforcements (will you share the kill?)>Calm down, rage is not the answer.>Ask him to answer for your family! >”My name is Tohma Avenir, and you destroyed my hometown, prepare to die!” >Write IN Song for this fight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubiZDYU7mv0
>>29879609Focus the rage, diverting from it insofar as getting away from the others. Basically, the brief thought that wild, senseless attacks won't win this...beyond that, combo time. Use that Heat End attack in conjunction with the blade of your weapon (if possible, have no clue). Do an overhand swing with that, which he'll surely block...and with the free hand, earth spike through the chest.We probably will NOT be calming down right now...but doesn't mean we can't try and ruin this guy.
>>29879609>Calm down, rage is not the answer.>>He is strong, if you want to kill him you have to focus.
>>29879609>Calm down, rage is not the answer.Nothing can get you killed faster than loosing control of yourself in a fight>Ask the Sister to leave with Lily.We said we would keep her safe, so it makes sense to make sure she is out of the way right now

Rolled 27>>29880702Sorry, will have to take a half hour break, will have to leave my library to go home.... will continue in half an hour.
Rolled 75>>29880730Back, will write nao. >>29880676Those were outside the first three rolls man.
>>29881294I get you, it's just that it was in direct response to you asking for an additional roll. Didn't know exactly what it was for.
Rolled 81>>29880588This rage inside you burns, it buns your heart, it burns your body, it burns your soul. But more than anything it burns your reasoning. Your fist met your face, causing blood to fall from your head. The blood was good, it calmed you, prepared you to deal with your rage. So you kill it, that rage. That man will die by your hand, anger or not that would not change. Your heart turn cold, but that is good for now. Turning to the sister, you stare behind her, at the person she is protecting. Lily. The girl is shaking, scared and she meets your eyes and then you know. She is scared for you, of you, of the killer you have become before this man. That makes this decision easy, “Sister!” Your voice is stern, powerful like one of the Knights of Ancient Belka, “Take Lily away, I will hold this man off while you look for help.” The Sister does not bother to respond, she just has to stare at her broken battle cross to make a quick decision, she takes Lily in her arms, who protests and prepares to jump back. You guess that is the skill of a knight, to know when to retreat. Your enemy, that man, is charging a skill, but with your gunblade you aim faster, shoot faster even. From the tip of your gun a column of pure light shoots, the beam of annihilation is true, and eats the man, the wall behind and even the hill beyond. This is the power you wield, the power for which you are a wanted man>[1/?]
>>29881618>????? HP 18-> 13/20 But you know that this is not enough, not to kill that man. You waste no time, following the man outside the wall, to the new crater under that sky filled with thunderclouds. There is no hesitation, you slam your gunblade down on smoke the man is, not even bothering to wait for him to rise. You will kill without mercy, but that man will not die so easily, he raises his own weapon to meet yours. His face is near yours, and his eyes met yours, and this is the moment you take to ask.“You, was it you who destroyed the Vaizen Mines seven years ago. Tell me!” You press against him, waiting an answer. “Vaizen… who knows, Question this!” The man moves to strike you but you are faster, your gunblade igniting into crimson flames as you overpower the man and ram your weapon down his guts! >????? Hp 13->8 /20You press the opportunity, after you defeat the man you will beat the information out of him if needed. Gathering the strange silver energy in your free hand you prepare your attack. Your hand burns in righteous anger in name of those who can’t you will fight this man. “Darkness Finger!” Your fire turns black as you try to ram it into that man, but he is faster and more skilled than you. “This is how it is done, Napalm Fang!” His left hand burns as he crushes your gut, sending you back away and creating space. >Tohma HP 15-> 11 You feel your body burn, but you ignore it, the enemy is here. >[2/3]
>>29881955“Yeah, that is how it should be. Come kid show me what you got, and maybe I will give you an answer.” The man readies his weapon, as his wounds seem to close before your eyes. “Show me what you can do with a broken reactor plug like that girl!!!” >?????’s Regen II is active this turn.>????? Hp 8->10/20 Viral Level: 30%->50% It cannot rise any more, dice bonus +1What do you do:>Get close again >Shoot him with a spell>Ask him about your hometown>Maybe he knows something about Lily>Write In??? >[3/3]
>>29881970While we've got a shitton of powers, why don't we try and see what we can do with earth magic. Anything from chrushing him to some classic earth spikes will do...and prepare to just shoot his ass if he jumps away from the ground.
>>29881970>>Get close againAsk him what his name is so we know who we're killing.
>>29882043The problem is that while Viral Level is at 50% there can be no use of magic, the EC virus is consuming your core to produce more particles to fight. >Plus that man is a Mage Killer, like you. Magic means nothing to him. If you lower your viral level again there might be a chance to use magic.
>>29882081Well, fuck it then. Melee time!

Rolled 64>>29882367fuuuuuuuuuuuckwe ashes now?
>>29882369When I roll for the other chars, it means that the higher is better for them, to keep the higher is worse for the player thing.
>>29882383Are we dead now?
>>29882411It shall be engraved to your very soul...
>>29882449Ah. So this guy...became our drunk uncle for that moment, then.
>>29882486Not that guy... not that guy. The first check was an arrival check.
>>29882274“Your name tell me your name!!!!” You rush at him again, you are stronger than him in close range that means that if you press that advantage you can win! You swing low, twisting your body to rise the blade of your gun towards his neck. “You forgot to say please, idiot!” But he is good too, even if you are stronger, his skill are not something easily matched. Your blades lock, that man and you pushing to break the head lock, but it is useless. Before either of the two can gain the advantage, lightning strikes in the sky, the flash of light blinding the two of you while another player enter the battle field. >[1/2]
>>29882684http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaU-RuIzcpw>>29882302>>29882346Clad in white armor over a blue dress, she is the one tasked to pass judgement on all criminals. She is an Enforcer, the inquisitor knights that protect the order in the TSAB. She raises her device, the cursed lance of thunder, Gungnir, and declared the darkclounds around her her domain, she is their ruler and their power hers. “This power shall be engraved unpon your soul!” “Descend Gungrir!” Lighting covered the weapon on her hand, transforming it into a weapon of ultimate destruction. >Thunder Break Spieß The device, Gundnir cried, as the Enforcer tossed her cursed weapon. It’s yellow color separated the cloudy sky into two, as it fortold its true purpose. Nothing would be allowed to live in the world of that spear, that was its purpose, destruction. To Touma Avenir and that man there was not chance avoiding the destruction. That spear struck the ground surpassing the speed of lightning, and then their world was washed in yellow light!!! >Roll a D100 to survive! D40

Rolled 56>>29882839Dammit, I wouldn't have rolled if I knew that success meant breaking the seal.
>>29882913>That girl is crying, now your path is sealed. >Welcome Mage Killer, welcome Eclipse Driver! >Magic Delink SucessSpell Broken!
>>29882986Well, at least we're alive...
>>29882986...Now I have the feeling that we should have just failed
>>29883008Give me some time, I have to take my brother to a friend's house. >>29883024Now do not be like that, Eclipse is your friend, it just asks you to murder people. Plus now you have Terminator Tohma.
>>29883051...Yeah, now I really wish we were dead
>>29883051>>29883063...maybe there's a cure? ^^;
Oh gods, the tension.At least Takato isn't as boned.Yet
>>29883063Come one, do not be so sad, you might be able to do something if you join the Huckebeins. >>29883080Maybe there is one, but the fate of all infected of Eclipse is death, there are not exceptions.
Rolled 71>>29883784The fate of everyone is death. It's what we do till then that seperates the good from the evil.
>>29883842This all day long.
>>29882986If magic is the miracle that allows mages to turn their wishes in reality, then your sword is a cruel curse that destroys those illusions and leaves tears in its wake. Ultimate power of destruction comes at you. Ultimate power of destruction attacks you. Ultimate power of destruction kills you. But you do not die when you are killed.You will not stay dead when where people who still need you are.You will not die when she needs you. You will not fail when you promised to come back. You will not allow yourself to fail because you want to see her again. So when ultimate destruction seeks to end you, you crush it instead, completely, absolutely. Because you will not allow it to stand between you and your promised ones. The light fades, the lighting fades, the Enforcer can only stare in disbelief as her ultimate spell had failed. Standing there is a knight clad in black armor, his right hand wields a swords that brings destruction, his left a shield that protects from all. Behind him a book that contains secrets from an era bygone. That is you, the you who had been taken power to return and protect. This is you, the you who had desired power to destroy and kill. You stare at the Enforcer in the sky, the one who had interfered. Raising your sword you aim…>Tohma HP 11->1Viral Level: 50%-> 666% +11 dice bonus, there is not end to you, right? Overdrive. Roll D100 for Divide Zero, 14 Rolls Accepted. >DC 30

Rolled 68>>29884172Keep rolling, let's aim for a crit!
Rolled 28>>29884172Keepin on the rolling, since we already succeeded.
>>29884278>>29884309Stop, What happens if we nat 100
>>29884309I am waiting for the 14 rolls, just to see them. Each success is a separate shot of the Divide Zero.
Rolled 81>>29884320Shit, this guy has a point...
Rolled 45>>29884330>separate shot of the Divide Zero.AH, never mind then
Well, I failed. Guess I am not cut out to be a Divider.

>>2988446150% hit rate?Not bad.
Rolled 89>>29884461>mfw I'm 4 of them.
>>29884172Is it bad if I'm thinking lewd thoughts about this outfit?
>>29884483>mfw I'm the other three
>>29884564No, Tohma is lewd, he has a harem and is male in Nanoha.
>>29884461Suddenly the world shifts, the sky darkens even more and the world takes a sepia tone. This is a dimension displacement magic, a Wide Area Force Field.This world is separated from the common world, a cage in which someone has trapped you away from others. So that you do not hurt others. The sky darkens, as the thunderclouds grow thicked, and up in the sky you see her. Clad in white armor, a black spear (rifle) in hand. Like one of those Valkyries that the Belkan Church sings to, she stands in the air, casting judgment to you. You do not bother to hear her words, you do not care about her claims or her justice. You just hate her. But the dimensional disturbances do not stop there, even more barriers pile on top of the one you are. Dimension overlaid over dimensions, there is no end to the barriers that overlay over you. This is the Great Seal, a Jailing technique that uses over 100 barriers to seal a target. Not even the White Devil would be able to break this.So it is to the surprise of every mage in the area when you continue aiming at the Enforcer. The dimensions have been distorted, space has been distorted, and time has been distorted, but still you aim at the enforcer. You only whisper the name of the spell, “Divide Zero…Multiple Raid!” Then you shoot a beam of pure destruction, not once, not twice, not thrice, but seven times. Each blast had the power to destroy a battleship, but you shot it that many times. >[1/?]
>>29884721Each blast pierced several of the wall that each had stopped countless Lost Logia since the end of the Belkan Era. The first had washed over 14 barriers, the second 13, the third over 15. The destructive power of this spell could not be contained. But your hate did not stop, and slowly each beam of silver pieced the wall, until the last reached the Enforcer, except it missed. Just enough, just a centimeter, only so that only the barriers of the mage had been broken. Then slowly the black knight walked towards the fallen Enforcer, raising his sword up high, ready to end her. Only to fall to the ground. He can no longer move, his body can no longer function. There is a limit to stubbornness, and a limit to will, this is yours. >[2/3]

A Sinner, one that will suffer. In the everlasting darkness you wake, the you who has lost yourself in madness and hate, the you who has lost yourself in love and friendship. In this world there is nothing, nothing to save...Who do you meet in this world:>name someone....
>>29884852Ein. And Vlvio
>>29884886No other answers... will wait some more... those who have read FORCE should already guess what happened.
>>29884978I haven't.Also, if nothing else...attempt to reject the senseless void. If we have memory, cling to it. We still have people to protect, if we can.
>>29884978You probably shouldn't assume anyone has.Also: Curren Hückebein
>>29884886>>29885058..... to be honest, I had hoped it would have been Nanoha.
>>29885086It's her difficulty level, how can we not go see her?Nanoha Takamachi
>>29885086Fine, Nanoha then.
>>29885150There is no need to feel like I want to force people... so if you do not feel like it do not vote for her.
>>29885224I don't even know who that is. Buuuut the manga is named after her, so Nanoha
>>29885121>>29885224>>29885243Very well, in hell there is no room for nothing but devils...
>>29885243Well basically we just agreed to a really cool instant BAD END.
>>29885263In this empty place you want to think of your loved ones. You think of Su-chan, the one who saved you.But nothing comes. You think of Vivio, the one who opened your heart.But nothing comes.You think of Ein, the one who understands you best.But nothing comes.You think of every person you know, from your sisters, your enemies, even that woman who writes you in the black book.But nothing comes. To you it might seem like an eternity had passed, or merely an hour, but the truth is not matter what nothing came. No one answered your call, except one person. White. This place is hell, here there is no room for loved one or saints. In this place there are only sinners and devil. Maybe that is why she has come, clad in white and blue, a devil who has brought destruction to her foes and victory to her allies. A White Devil. Standing before you is Nanoha Takamachi, a person who hates you. A person who you hate back. >[1/2]
>>29885534How funny, in this darkness there was no one you could have clung to except this devil-woman. “Tohma Avenir,” She stands before you, as your body just rests in the eternal darkness, “I hate you.” But for the sake of formality it has to be said, “I hate you too.” You and she were not compatible, you two were too similar and too different to be compatible, and you two loved similar things yet for too many different reasons. If she was a monster that spread salvation to her friends, then you were a clown that spread tragedy to others. Yeah a great greeting, a great start to this, you already feel like shooting whoever was the one who thought of this. Nanoha FORCE Quest Part II End. Next Part: Deep End I Tune in Saturday.
>>29885555>you already feel like shooting whoever was the one who thought of this....*hides*
>>29885555>Tune in Saturday.You mean I have to wait a whole three days to see us die a gruesome and painful death?If I must.
>>29885555Thread Evaluation: Outstanding (was fun and strange)Exp Gained: 5 (Lost part of it due to Viral Levels being too high)Morality Gains: +10 Blue Robin, you feel closer to Ein and Vivio+15 Red Raven, you feel closer to a certain Devil...+5 Gray Eagle, a certain man smiles on your fortune.
>>29885658No, you are already dead, there is no double death in hell. A devil may not kill you twice, that does not mean Nanoha may not try... Also choce an Interlude: -Lily-The Enforcer-Eins-That man-?????
>>29885730>-?????Well this can only be two people.
>>29885730Hmmm....Lily. I like her, and she seems like she'd be the most fun one to play with, atm
>>29885794Who??? Curren? Su-chan...It is Nanoha, not really play to find out.
>>29885806So Lily... might not be a bad idea, will go Lily if no one votes in 10 mins.
>>29885730>-LilyWonder what's going on in that mind of hers right now.Especially after seeing Tohma get devoured by the Eclipse.
>>29885920Aww, does my -?????, not count?I still vote -?????
>>29885958Ah, I see, sorry to have not noticed it, I believed that it was a question about the choice.
>>29885979So, no other votes, will go for Lily in 5 Mins, then.
>>29886063Well Lily it is, the next thread will start with playing Lily... so get ready. The Hunt for Tohma's body Arc is starting, Get SET!!!!
>>29886213WOOAnd to think, this all started with us going to the Church instead of the City, as was canon. c:
>>29886265Well, this was pretty much derailed with Terminator Tohma in the last part of the battle, you guys had pretty much a lot of bad luck. Well, at least the next thread we will get the Grendels and a certain Ferret Librarian.
>>29886303Well, having ridiculous bad luck and breaking canon is a staple of /tg/ anyway.Good run there, OP.
>>29886303>you guys had pretty much a lot of bad luck.If we don't fail horribly at least once a session it doesn't feel like a FORCE quest.
Rolled 4Checking TImeskip rolls... >>29886324Well I have to prepare for this, this is going to be a really big change. >>29886349That too.How did you guys feel about the thread, did you like it? I also owe you player an OOC question to be answered from the last thread.Also just saying, if you had gone to the City, you could have gotten to meet the Grendels earlier and maybe gotten off world.
>>29886418Honestly, I loved it. In one evening, we go from village boy on the run to breaking every law of physics/magic known to mankind. How could this POSSIBLY be a bad run?
>>29886418No offense, but a bit more spellcheck/grammar fixing would be neat. I just don't want to nitpick more than I have to.Other than that, I'm good.(And I still can't think of a good OOC question to ask, damn.)
>>29886494>No offense, but a bit more spellcheck/grammar fixing would be neat. I just don't want to nitpick more than I have to.I know, there were some posts that I felt were bad, to be honest I blame that I am tired as I ran this from morning to night non-stop... Still, if you guys do not have any, you should ask the obvious one.... what happened to Tohma, or where he is now.
>>29886587No spoilers, my man. No spoilers......still, it would be nice to know...what happened to Lily between her being led off and whenever we take control of her?
>>29886650She trained, trained until her body almost killed her. She has a debt repay, a person to save and she will not stop at nothing to do that. She is not a flower of calamity anymore, but rather a flower that will give that boy hope. Plus her current partner is crazy... I mean like Odin-crazy...
>>29886720Oh shiz...also, what else is happening? As in...what's going on with Vivio, Ein, Su-chan...
>>29886761Vivio and Eins are not involved in this directly, they are safe in AW#1, Mid Childa. But Vivio is pressing the Church to recover Tohma behind Nanoha-mama's back. About Su-chan... Su-chan and Tea-nee were originally in the planet, they were the one who recovered Tohma and turned him to the special Anti-Eclipse Taskforce they are part of to try to save him. Su-chan cried at her failure... but at least she met Lily.
