Welcome ladies and gentlemen to another edition of Succubus Lord Quest!Last time on SLQ, Shiva, the Motherly slacker Wrath Demon currently living with us, took Brooklyn out for a celebration party of officially becoming a Demon Lord with a Hero vowing to take us down. During the same party, we had a distrubing warning of some one close to Brooklyn is going to end up betraying us soon. The next morning, Brooklyn woke up to find that she is in now the proud possession of her very first suit of ‘proper’ Succubus Lord Armour... Proper from a mass media point in that it’s nearly a swimsuit. After that, we took Leona over to the Church of Pamille, to see if we could rekindle her crushed Celestia Faith into something new. After having a small meeting with Matriarch Ishtar and the Paladin Teresa, the Church of Pamille and Ishtar agreed to help us without doing anything major for now.After that, Leona and Latooni met and connected in a way that Latooni really does know what Leona is going through, and comforted her accordingly.We now continue from where we left off!Also the second post was an ugly post with lots of eyesore text, which is now all compiled here!https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Um4gk-JN4CHFJJdQrJjfbzg6Q8FHcmfxP8sRDhaf-FI
[1/2]You and Erika bid your time for nearly an hour, simply admiring the art in the church (Or describing it to Erika) while Latooni and Leona have some alone time together. While Latooni was right in that Leona will have you and Erika as her friends, right now Latooni is the only one who really understands how Leona feels in this situation, so for now you and Erika are entrusting Latooni with the care of Leona.The Church itself is a rather large an expansive buildings, and while the Queens are mentioned in name, no solid pictures or even solid descriptions of them exist here. Indeed the most you found out about the queens was that one of had, “Long, elegant, immaculate Raven black hair”. Certainly Oksana, but after seeing her with bed head, you can’t help but to reflexively chuckle every time you read that bit of church dogma.“The Queen of Magic burst through from the window, her perfectly formed rav- Pffftt.” you say stifling a laugh while reading some of the Church of Pamille Bible.“Brooklyn!” Erika points at you.“I’m sorry, but with what I studied of the Queens myself, this is like hearing a fairy tale.” you reply.“What’s like hearing a fairy tale?” Latooni asks.“Nothing!” You say quickly putting the book back into the row seat bookshelf.“Oh Erika you were right! This religion isn’t anything like I thought it was!” Leona says nearly tackling her cousin in a hug.Erika just laughs, embracing her cousin as she crashes into her. “Oh?”
[2/2]“Yes, the Church of Pamille is a religion that was originally made by Succubi and those words of wisdom from Empress Pamille, so we have a few important key lessons. Such as cooperating with others in order to properly expand, avoiding things such as stagnation wherever it may occur.” Latooni replies.Hm, prompting advancement over stagnation? No wonder the Pride Demons don’t like it. “And here I thought humans joined the church merely to have set with Succubi.” you reply.“And the polygamy.” Latooni replies.“...That too.” you reply.“Latooni also told me a bit about herself! She’s a Miyian just like Amanda is!” Leona exclaims. “She can even forge artifacts!”“Wait, *you* can forge artifacts!?” you ask in an impressed tone. Artifacts and relics are rare, potent items often passed through great demonic families. Even at their most basic level, they are weapons whose blade never dulls or breaks.“Yes... I learned how when I was growing up as a smithy worker in New TO. Though there is one part of being a Miyian I’m not particularly proud of.” Latooni asks.“Oh?” Erika asks. “What part?”“...Well see, every Miyian has one area of Superscience they just seem to naturally excel in. For me, it’s weapons of destruction. I just often find myself questioning my reason for this religion accepting me at times. We try to teach peace and cooperation, and here I excel in making weapons of death.” Latooni says, a small frown on her face as she sighs. “You saw one of my self-protection weapons back when that Miyian Gang attacked us. That was a non-lethal version of one of my earlier works.”
>>30802699"A very wise mortal once said: 'All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.' I consider it a great thing that a good person like yourself can do something if the need arises.
>>30802699"You probably understand that not everyone wants to cooperate. Conflicts will happen and while you might not need them now maybe someday you will have to use one of your creation to protect what's precious to you. As long as you're wise enough to only use them when that time come I'm sure you'll see there is nothing to be ashamed of."
>>30802699But that's not a bad thing.
“A very wise mortal once said: 'All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.' I consider it a great thing that a good person like yourself can do something if the need arises.” you reply."You probably understand that not everyone wants to cooperate. Conflicts will happen and while you might not need them now maybe someday you will have to use one of your creation to protect what's precious to you. As long as you're wise enough to only use them when that time come I'm sure you'll see there is nothing to be ashamed of." Erika adds.“No! If one has a weapon then the only thing the other will do is either want a weapon just like that or a bigger weapon just in case they fear the other strikes out. I believe that peaceful talks will only occur when each side fully understands the other, and so long as people try to kill one another, that’d never happen.” Latooni replies.“So even if you’re fully responsible, you’re saying that your opponent may not see the same way?” you ask.“Yes, that’s right.” Latooni replies. “I am very experienced with the production of weapons, but I walked off that path long ago. The only thing that lies down that path is death and destruction. I want to use my gifts for the flourishing and benefit of both mankind and demonkind.”Latooni replies. “But yet you used one of your weapons when the gang attacked us.” you point out.Latooni looks a bit flustered when you point this out. “I did it because I wanted to help all of you! I believe that if one is careful you can avoid harming the other, but after a certain point I acknowledge that conversation or avoidance may be impossible! I just don’t like any of my creations taking a life no matter whose it is!”
>>30803222"A fair point. I'm more militant than you are, but killing usually shouldn't be the first recourse."
>>30803222"It's good to value life. But like you said, sometimes you can''t avoid violence. The biggest problem there is, sometimes people don't /want/ to avoid it. Of course, if you can settle things in a non-lethal way, that's good.In fact, you should take pride in that. Imagine police forces or peace-keeping troops armed with your weapons. Situations where force is necessary, but your weapons give the option of non-lethal force. Things like that could save a lot of lives."
>>30803222"I don't think any sane being enjoy taking a life. While I don't share you opinion, I have no problem respecting it and all it entails. "
"It's good to value life. But like you said, sometimes you can''t avoid violence. The biggest problem there is, sometimes people don't /want/ to avoid it. Of course, if you can settle things in a non-lethal way, that's good.” you reply. “In fact, you should take pride in that. Imagine police forces or peace-keeping troops armed with your weapons. Situations where force is necessary, but your weapons give the option of non-lethal force. Things like that could save a lot of lives."“I wish I could see it that way. The only thing I see when my weapons are used is a failed situation...” Latooni sighs.“Oh don’t be like that Latooni! You didn’t seem to let that bother you when you were showing me around!” Leona replies.“Well... It doesn’t bother as much today as it used to. I can build other things yes, but I’ve always found it troubling that a weaponsmith like me is attempting to become a pacifist.” Latooni replies. “But you’re right in that I do remain hopeful. People who were far more morally bankrupt than I have been known to become Saints after some realization. So I too patiently await the day I achieve such a realization.” (Anything else you wish to do at the church or ask Latooni? If you want to leave, I’m going to assume home unless said otherwise.)
We should get some aether. It is not smart to walk around only half full.
>>30803666Nothing, here. I had a question sandact, since we can give our soliogram aether so they can cast spells now, could we do the same with the explosive kind to allow them to cast annihilator beams?
>>30803763Only Light spells. Space will allow them to cast annihilator beams without blowing up.
>>30803666"There's nothing wrong with working towards pacifism. War tears everything apart. It's those who think that with a more powerful weapon, war will end that are a problem."Say to Leona "Remember, this isn't about Celestia or Pamille, this is about seeing the world is bigger then you thought it could be. Remember what's in your heart. See the similarities that everyone shares."
>>30803838That's what I thought, how adverse would you be to a player writing a tentative version of the spell?
>>30803875I'd have to see some idea or concept of it before I judge it.
“It’s been nice meeting you Latooni, but we must be going on about the rest of our day now.” you reply sitting back up.“Oh! I-I’m sorry if I’ve been keeping you longer than you all wanted!” Latooni says starting to panic.“Oh no please Latooni! It wasn’t any trouble at all!” Erika replies.“Yes! If anything the time I spent here wasn’t enough! But we must return to our rooms to get everything unpacked.” Leona replies.“Oh thank goodness... While in that case please be sure to come back again when you have a chance! We’d be delighted to have you all here once more!” Latooni tells you all.“But of course.” you reply with a smile to Latooni.“Goodbye!” Erika says waving to her.“Bye Lat!” Leona says waving as you all walk away.“Are you coming back to the house to unpack Brooklyn?” Erika asks.“Na, I’m going out to grab something to eat.” you reply.“Oh then I’ll c- ...Oh.” Leona says as images come into her mind.“Yea that word has a different meaning for us now doesn’t it?” you reply.“Still! Don’t go doing perverted things when you have no romatic interest in your partner!” Leona preaches pointing her finger at you.A) Go to a bar, drink, do many perverted thingsB) Go to a bar, don’t drink, do many perverted thingsC) Go to a bar, feed in non-lewd waysD) Other (Specify)
>>30804049>B) Go to a bar, don’t drink, do many perverted thingsmake sure to use a throwaway ID
>>30804049>B) Go to a bar, don’t drink, do many perverted thingsI'm not AGAINST non-lewd feeding, but it is the easiest way. And a bit of cheap fun.Hey Sand, can we cant the Ask Fate ritual any more this month? Last thread it was suggested investigating the Miyian assassination with Okarian means. Something that may not have been done before.
>>30804049>B) Go to a bar, don’t drink, do many perverted things>>30803925As I said tentative conceptAnnihilator Soliograms (Not Learned)Pre-requesite: Light Control (Great) and Dark Control (Great) Space Control (Average/Good)Aether Cost- High to Very HighDescription- The caster creates up to 6 soliogram infused with both Light and Dark magic allowing them to cast Annihilator beams and/or explode. Those soliogram can't be larger than medium, though caster usually make them smaller to augment survivability. Some ammount of mind control to infuse them with basic sentience is reccomended since micromanaging them is mentally taxing.
>>30804254*cast the ritual
>>30804254You can cast it again this month yes.
>>30804049>A) Go to a bar, drink, do many perverted things
>>30804315Oh good. I vote we do that later then.
>>30804288Yea something like that is fine
>>30804378Light control has a Light form like darkness does right?
>>30804378Time to go over SRW attacks and write down everything else I wanted Thank you Sand
Yea... Like you’re going to let this time to get some R&R just slip right under your own fingers.“Oh don’t worry Leona, I promise nothing will get too out of hand.” you say with a gentle smile.Leona just seems to stare at you for a few seconds before a small smile appears on her face. “Alright Brooklyn, I trust you. Be sure not to hurt anyone!”“I won’t~!” you reply as you skip merrily down the street.After a quick change into another body, your next trip over to the bar involves every intention in the world to do whatever the hell you want for the next bit and enjoy life before the next disaster happens. Finding actual Succubi from human women is a bit of a pain, and indeed you managed to accidently kiss one you mistook for a human. Nevertheless, using some of Mina’s tips and your own... experimentation with yourself, both you and your partner manage to have a great time together. ...In a rented room of course. You don’t want to even KNOW what’s on the walls in the public latrines.After a good, solid, four hours of clubbing, you decide to make your way back to your own home tower. As soon as you enter, you can see what appears to be your father sitting in front of a fireplace reading a book, with Marina at a desk nearby doing paperwork.“Hey Dad.” you say taking off your winter coat. “Hello so-... Don’t tell me you came home with your head looking like that.” your father says pointing out your messy hair.“...Huh? Oh! Yea sorry!” you say immediately patting it down. It seems even a shapechange can’t undo rough bedhead. “So what have you been doing all day?”“Oh I was interrogated by Lord Dio’s dogs.” your father replies.Ada stops signing her own papers for a moment. “...What?”
>>30804395It does yes. Never thought about it but it should.
>>30804675"I guess even they heard the rumor about you mentoring the hero."
>>30804675"Well, since you're not bloodied or broken, I guess the interrogation was mostly friendly. Tell me what happened."
[1/2]“Well, since you're not bloodied or broken, I guess the interrogation was mostly friendly. Tell me what happened." you ask sitting down in a chair next to your father. “It happened when I was in the shopping district downtown. I was picking up some food with Alex’s recommendations...” your Father says recalling.“Wait, Alex knows how to cook?” you ask.“Oh yes! Very well in fact! His father was a chef so he knows how to cook quiet well. You should let him cook a meal for you some time Brooklyn.” you father suggests....Tempting if he wasn’t always hitting on you... Actually everything that moves.“But back to the story. I was shopping while minding my own business, when suddenly one of those Narloyepth demons come up behind me, ‘asking’ me to come along. Sure enough I follow them, and go right into a room that contained two guards and a single Envy Demon shapeshifted to look like some sort of sly con man. The fedora, the coin, the old world tuxedo, everything.” your father says sounding unimpressed.“What happened then?” Marina asks.“Simple, I told him the truth.” your father replies.“...What?” you reply.
[2/2]“Brooklyn, there’s no way I can cover up that I used to be a teacher at the Celestia school. I told that Envy Demon exactly who I was and what I was doing. I also told me that if he harmed me, then Celestia would burn him alive over the course of the next 1000 years, at minimum. I also told him that if I even *suspected* that he was going to go after my family, I’d blow the Celestia whistle and flood the city in a swarm of Angels.” your father replies.“...Really?” you ask.“Yea. Most of it was actually a bluff, but he didn’t take that chance. He cut me loose right after that I went right back to shopping.” your father replies.Marina listens in on the story, only seeming to blush as she hears such a thing. “W-Well we this is concerning. They’re starting to conduct random interviews by the sounds of things.”
>>30805265"Seems like we are overstaying our welcome. Best to point the pride demons in another direction and then leave until things calm down again."
>>30805265"I guess I'll have to prepare to be questioned myself, I just hope they won't find cause to use mind reading on me."
>>30805265Archive reader here Sand.Trying to catch up quickly so I know whats going on and can participate freely, just wanted to say that as of thread 20ish I really like your quest!
"Seems like we are overstaying our welcome. Best to point the pride demons in another direction and then leave until things calm down again." you say with a small sigh.“Speaking of information, I’ve successfully managed to get some information from the Gemelli grapevine. There is indeed a large undead presence in Old TO, but then again this is Old TO and nothing here is ever in small quantities.” Ada replies.“And?” you reply.“Oh up to their usual antics it seems. They’re trying to expand a dead zone so that it’d cover Old TO and ghosts can safely materialize. The other group are the local vampires, and they want to try to blot out the sun, endless feeding night, all that cliche tripe.” Marina says reaching for a cup of tea. “Though with the Pride Demon crackdown, they are digging a bit deeper underground and hiding their plans.”
>>30805592"I'll see what I can find on dead zone and sun blotting the next time I go to the library. So, I need to invite Excel over so she can meet everyone, set a date for the leader meeting, cause a big enough disturbance that some other group is blamed for the draugr action and maybe find a way to investigate something in Chicago. Am I forgetting anything?"
>>30804697I vote we blame the vampires then.
>>30805687Leader meeting is on next Thursday. The day in game is Saturday
"I'll see what I can find on dead zone and sun blotting the next time I go to the library. So, I need to invite Excel over so she can meet everyone, cause a big enough disturbance that some other group is blamed for the draugr action and maybe find a way to investigate something in Chicago. Am I forgetting anything?" you ask everyone.“Seems to be in order.” “Looks sounds fine to me.” both your Dad and Ada reply.“Excellent.” you say leaning back in your chair a bit, enjoying the warmth of the fireplace. (It’s still about 6 PM, what do you wish to do now?)
>>30806025when is our next study group meeting? We should do some reading. maybe ask Leona what she thinks of the church now that she is away from it...
>>30806025I believe we wanted to go out with the twins. Might as well get that out of the way
>>30804697Cool. Can we do some sort of light/dark one winged angel form?
>>30806025Relax for the night, invite excel tomorrow if we don't have study group
>>30806159That would probably be a unique spell that we'd need more Aetheric theory to avoid blowing ourselves up.
>>30806083>>30806192Study group is on Tuesday
“It’s been a while since I had any free time. I’m going to go upstairs, unpack a bit, then relax the rest of the night.” you say.“Night Brooklyn.” Your father and Ada say.Unpacking your room is a casual breeze when you have tentacles made of pure darkness do your bidding for you. But as you put away the books on the bookshelf, you head over to the clothing bag and notice that the ‘Succubus Armor’ you had since this morning is still lying on top of your clothing bag. While you honestly never want to be caught in public with such a thing, you do admit that you’re morbidly curious to what sort of capabilities it has...A) Put it onB) Read a book then go to sleep, praying the sun doesn’t explode while sleepingC) Other
>>30806273So monday, excel, tuesday study group and planing for friday, thursday talk about our options to visit or get chicago investigated, wednesday meeting, Friday we blow shit up and skip town
>>30806402>A) Put it on
>>30806416You're forgetting the twins.
>>30806402C) Put it on, practice demon lord speech
[1/2]Well... You guess putting it on for a *little* while won’t be that bad...Taking off your clothes and stepping into the Succubus ‘armor’, you struggle to find something like a zipper on it, but as soon as you put it on the entire thing thing seems to adjust to your size. At first it’s a shock and somewhat uncomfortable, but once the adjustments are finished it does indeed feel like a second skin.“...Oh good lord... My asschecks are totally exposed in this!” you mutter to yourself as you use the full sized body mirror in your room to look over your uniform. “And does this uniform need to push up and emphasize my breasts so much!? I’m seriously getting worried whenever they’re going to pop out at this rate!” You try to push down you breasts, but only do so in vain. The armour ‘is’ magical, so hopefully, HOPEFULLY it’ll stick.One thing you do notice however is how easily your aether tends to flow in this suit. It feels as if before you were channeling magic magic like a person with vision problems, but now you can feel the aether flowing through you far more easily.“Hm...” you say raising up your head, engulfing it in a purple flame of darkness before looking at the mirror. “Demon! I vow that someday I will take you down!” you can hear Rifter the Hero’s voice in your head.“...Me? A demon?” you ask with a cocked hip and raised eyebrow.
[2/2]“Yes I mean you, vile demon!” you can hear Rifter’s obnoxious voice in your ears.“Hahahaha! Don’t make me laugh!” you say closing your hand into a fist, making the small cloud of darkness vanish and small blast of air come out around you. “I’m a frickin’ demon lord! The one strong enough to rule over all the lands you bear witness to! I’M going to crush you like a grape!”Cccrrrreeeaaakkkk...A sharp chill runs up your spine as you turn around to see what the creaking noise was...Only to see your Father, Mina, Alex, Shiva, Nalika, and Uilodsir currently peeking in the room.“...Oh don’t mind us!” Mina exclaims.“That’s not bad for a practice speech!” Shiva exclaims.“Always with the lofty aspirations, eh Brooklyn?” Alex asks you with a coy smile....You want to die.
>>30807004"Remind me to add torturing my treacherous and unfaithful minions to the next one."
>>30807071yes. deadpan delivery.
>>30807071Brooklyn gives no fucks.
>>30807071>>30807112Thirding for a deadpan delivery
"Remind me to add torturing my treacherous and unfaithful minions to the next one." you reply in a totally deadpan voice.“I’m so happy that costume fits you so well though Brooklyn!” Mina says throwing open the door.“I’m still in shock that... You know.” your father replies.Uilodsir seems to have the same message as your father, albiet with a nosebleed as well.“...Ah yes! That was the outfit we all went out and got that Sloth Demon to make oui?” Alex asks.“Yes! And it was so cheap for a relic too! Only two Astral Diamonds!” Shiva exclaims as she puts a hand on her cheek.You nearly gag upon hearing this. “*Two* astral Diamonds!? That’s 200 plantium pieces each! That’s nearly 200,000 gold!”“Yes! Well worth spending my entire travel budget!” Shiva replies.“...What? You *what*?” Shiva asks staring at her mother in disbelief.“Oh it’s fine~. After all, you guys are paying for my food and lodging now!” Shiva replies merrily.
>>30807004Now might be a good time to remind everyone that the Pride demons are doing random interviews. Everyone needs to prepare themselves to tell A truth, the truth that reveals as little as possible.Oh, and "What? Everyone has to start somewhere!"
>>30807279"As long as you promise to get involved if the fight looks fun."Also, give them the info here: >>30807298 . What will happen, will happen, but it's best to mitigate things.
>>30807279"Hey, if you need to rebuild your funds you could always go after fake me once he revives and the pride demons put a bounty on him. The irony of them paying you for that job would be delicious."
"Hey, if you need to rebuild your funds you could always go after fake me once he revives and the pride demons put a bounty on him. The irony of them paying you for that job would be delicious." you ask.“Tempting, but for now I’d rather stay out of any sort of conflict or major interaction from the Pride Demons, before they also figure out who I am.” Shiva replies.“Who are you then?” Uilodsir asks.“Oh just your average everyday Rage Demon~.” Shiva says with a small wink.As Shiva says this, Nalika’s nose starts to bleed as her eyebrow twitches.“...Nalika?” you ask.“Suppressing rage.” Nalika replies back to you.
>>30807553"You should get one of those old world stress balls. Anyway, shows over."
>>30807553"Remember to be careful when you go out, everyone. The pride demons are doing random interviews." Stop Mina if she attempts to leave the room.
"You should get one of those old world stress balls. No matter how much you squeeze them they never break.” you reply to Nalika.“Oh, that sounds like a challenge~.” Shiva says happily.“Everyone! Out!” you say pointing to the door of the room and summoning up a wave of darkness to push everyone out.“Goodnight Brooklyn!” Mina and your Father call out as they’re being pushed out.“Oh and be careful about the Pride Demons! They’re doing random interviews now!” you say warning everyone before closing the door shut with your tentacles.“Here I was tempted to throw this thing away or sell it, but something costing this much will probably be a bit tricky to do.” you mutter as you take the armor off. “This thing is worth more than nearly all the gold in Fort Hope.”After a nice long session of reading about undead, you decide to hit the hay and go to sleep.(Do you want to do anything specific before going to meet up with Brooklyn’s study buddies? If not, I’ll be skipping to it)
>>30808020>Invite excel to the new apartment
>>30808126Oh, yeah. Seduce the twins.t
>>30808126oh yeah we have been planning to do that forever. Lets get it out of the way. theater and dinner, this time with no excel to cockblock us.
Upon waking up the next day, you decide to head over early in the morning to catch Excel before she heads off to her own job. Leaving her a quick notice that she can head over to your new place after her job.“Hm... Maybe I should buy some sweets for our family reunion~.” You say skipping over to the marketplace.As you hum softly while window shopping the various treats, a massive jolt goes up your spine. Normally you heard only Gemelli can feel magical ‘pressure’, but this is so thick and full of malice that ice just seems to tear all the way up your spine and into your brain, which is now screaming at you “Run, Run now.”Turning around to see what this dreadful power is, you can see what is the beginning of a demonic convoy walking down the street from the West, heading towards Lord Dio’s castle. Large Orge and Gorilla like bodyguards march down the street in black and white armored, emblem of that from a different noble house from Blizzarios’s.Then you see it as he walks by. A Pride Demon with a rather lean face, but a sick twisted smirk of supreme confidence on his face as he walks by with black and white articulated armor with the Obscurité Family Seal proudly displayed, white shortsword hilted at his hip. You can only hold your breath out of pure fear as he walks by you, and it’s only when he turns around to go to a new street do you collaspe, holding onto the window for support. Good lord! You didn’t need to turn on your Aura sight for that thing! You *felt* it! Up until now you always felt that if you were careful with your engagements you could take anything on, even Dio or Articus himself. But this... This thing will obliterate you the very instant you try and battle him, THAT you know.“...Lady? Are you alright?” A young boy asks, looking concerned as you are hunched over for breath.
>>30808087Yeah, has she seen dad yet?
>>30808579"I'll be fine, do you happen to know who was that by any chance?"
>>30808579"Yeah, I'm fine"Wow, that's some serious dick waving if we felt him that much more strongly than a Wrath Empress.
"I'll be fine.” you say standing yourself back up. “Do you happen to know who was that by any chance?"“Oh! That was Dis! The Pride Demon General! I heard he’s super cool and he came here to beat all the Succubi!” The kid proclaims....Oh piss. He did actually show up.OK Brooklyn... Calm down... Now taking what you know of magic and demon kind, compare this to Shiva. Shiva, even at nearly 66% of her power, had no real ‘pressure’ to her own power. If anything, you suspect this is nothing more than a Pride Demon power made to intimidate. It makes sense... Pride demons are known for such things....But to have something to have *that* amount of emotion? You were lucky you didn’t run away screaming.You’re now concerned about this. Really concerned. While Teresa said she probably planned for such a thing, you’re wondering if one the REALLY big fish showing up means if any plans you have are going to go AWOL....But the Leaders are capable people and they should be able to handle this on their own... Right?(Go see a leader or just keep shopping until it’s time to get Excel?)
>>30808841Take the twins out
>>30808841Send an imp to warn the Subotas and make ourselves available tomorrow, they'll likely be able to handle it from there. Other than that keep shopping
>>30808841Twins to lunch.
>>30808841oh yeah we have been planning to do that forever. Lets get it out of the way. theater and dinner, this time with no excel to cockblock us.
Newcomer to thread and quest.Is this lewd at all?
>>30808990Once in a while, most of it is fade to black.
>>30808990There is some holding hands, anon.
>>30809006>>30809019>>30809026Second question, is there a way to play at this point without being assfuck confused about everything or reading 64 threads of 100+ posts?
>>30809196The doc will give you the rundown on the characters, otherwise you'll have to archive binge or ask question>>30809114We promised our sister we'd have her meet everyone and we have saved brooklyn father.
>>30809196Read: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Um4gk-JN4CHFJJdQrJjfbzg6Q8FHcmfxP8sRDhaf-FIBasic deal after that is we are currently trying to meet succubi political leaders (only have one more to meet), get a secondary village set up for civilians with the upcoming war going on, and finally remove a Sharks vs. Jets rivalry between the Magic Users and the Tech Users (Okarians which we are part of and Miyians).Currently people are doing some slice of life stuff, it's a staple of the quest.
>>30809224>We promised our sister we'd have her meet everyone and we have saved brooklyn father.I was more confused by the apparent inability to count.
>>30809246I'm pretty sure sandact is ignoring the push for smut for plot
>>30809240>Sharks vs JetsWhat?There's actually a debate over this? Jets are better in every way possible.

>>30809273...I seriously doubt that is going to work.
>>30809299It's been going rather well until now, but you know they just switch fixation as soon as they finish with some girl
>>30809224>>30809240Third question, is there any incentive to restoring our humanity and retaking mankind's position as the rightful dominant species?Or are we just gonna go full demon?
>>30809374We're a succubus and we were promised earth
>>30809345...Not really? They've been interacting with Amanda pretty frequently. Also, for your condescending passive aggressiveness towards your fellow posters, I'm going to go with >>30808931
Yes... Yes a nice lunch with the twins would be nice. Something to help take your mind off of that horrible, horrible feeling that is still crashing through your body.You head on over to the twin’s house. It’s not a very big place, just a standard two story house in between two other houses, but given that the twins are from a Trader Family, they probably don’t even stay in this house all that much.You give a few knocks at the door before someone answers the door. “Look I told you Mr. Sinclaire, we are not interested in dealing w-”“How about I make you an offer that you can’t refuse?” you ask Stacy with a smile as soon as she opens the door.“Oh~.” Stacy says in an intrigued voice, finger on the corner of her lips. “That’d depend on what on the offer is~.”“Lunch. You and sister.” you reply.“Lunch sounds sublime!” Stacy says clapping her hands together. “Katlin agrees as well! Give us a few minutes to put away some things and we’ll be right out!”******You avoid the restaurant that Excel works in for fear of her ruining your date, again. As a small change of pace, you decide to go to what appears to be a breakfast and lunch cafe. There is no tea, but the variety of fruity drinks they have there makes you want to try those out as well. Much of the decor is that of a tropical environment, and many of the plates served are claimed to come from Hawaii itself.“So Brooklyn, I trust everything is going well on your end?” Stacy asks as she looks at her menu. “Are you making progress with someone who isn’t accidently trying to burn your house down?”“It was only the bed that caught fire!” Katlin protests slamming down her menu.
>>30809386Earth is a pittance compared to man's manifest destiny among the stars.But if that's not on the menu, then I won't order it.
>>30809374>Third question, is there any incentive to restoring our humanity and retaking mankind's position as the rightful dominant species?If that was possible, then no. Demons are not compelled to do things in this any more than a normal person would (barring outside influences).As for restoring humanity? Yes. Humanity outnumbers demons basically 100-1 and provide most of the food, labour, and other resources needed to survive.
>>30809442Hey, I won't stop you.
>>30809442Well we have plenty of things to worry about before the stars, like the king of despair was it?>>30809390I've lived far worse than someone voting to spite me really
>>30809402"Quite well. Hit a few snags, but I've overcome them. Or blown them up. So, still having trouble with your magic? I'll have to arrange some... lessons.">>30809462I think he means becoming human again, which I figure is slightly more likely than becoming an incubus.
>>30809487Outstanding. After courting these wenches we should plan a coup. You know. A little side project. It would fit with our dramatic increase in power from lowly scholar to succubus lord. We desire more power, and we've been pushed around. Of course we want to reassert ourselves, and do so violently and in a very shiny way.>>30809508>King of DespairSounds like an intriguing diversion. I wonder if any of the killing-places from before the apocalypse remain. If he's at all biological, he will be quite frail to what mankind would have had in store for him had they been ready.tl;dr: My body is ready.
>>30809402I've got nothing that doesn't sound horrible. So a combination of teaching and "teaching" like >>30809538 sounds about right
>>30809612>Outstanding. After courting these wenches we should plan a coup. You know. A little side project. It would fit with our dramatic increase in power from lowly scholar to succubus lord. We desire more power, and we've been pushed around. Of course we want to reassert ourselves, and do so violently and in a very shiny way.We unfortunately aren't that powerful yet. Probably one of the most recurring complaints is how slowly we gain power IRL.
>>30809675Hence, a side project. We wait for an opening, an indicator of what kinds of power we can tap into. And if we recognize any, or have any knowledge or talents that others do not, we exploit them.
>>30809675Nah, there is no main complaint. Other than why did we ever train water control
>>30809702But who would we coup? I'm in favor of more demon lord mind you, but I'm not sure who we're supposed to be couping.>>30809725Because Muh tiny passive bonuses.>>30809749The Tiny bikini probably does a better job.
>>30809749Right and we hadn't switched to the xp system then.
>>30809374We are a demon, but like any person, we have a choice of how to do things. So far, we've been pretty good as far as things go.Oh, and there's some sort of nebulous evil called the King of Despair out there. A Draugr was created basically from the moment after we turned and was completed after we finally took over our town (with the help of quite a few people, especially Ada).The Draugr seems to be trying to slow us down and ruin our power base, currently (and is doing a decent job, we've got to be careful).
"Quite well. Hit a few snags, but I've overcome them. Or blown them up. So, still having trouble with your magic? I'll have to arrange some... lessons." you say suggestively.“We’re fine Brooklyn. It’s just that Fire is also linked to emotion, and Katlin tends to have to have some vivid dreams or nightmares.” Stacy replies.“Oh! I’d love to have some extra lessons Lady Browning!” Katlin replies, completely missing the context of your hit.“...Sister, she meant doing other things in addition to the lesson.” Stacy says in a deadpan voice.“Like what?” Katlin asks.“Making out.” Stacy replies.“Make out of what?” Katlin asks in a genuinely curious voice.Stacy at this point only slowly rubs her own forehead in disbelief. You meanwhile just continue smiling, trying to come up with some sort of coherent response.
>>30809816"Well, first we need to go have dinner, then we find a place to practice..."
>>30809816"Well, you see that when practicing magic, you deplete your aether reserves, and to ensure that you get the most out of your training, I would have to... lend you some of my aether...."
"Well, you see that when practicing magic, you deplete your aether reserves, and to ensure that you get the most out of your training, I would have to... lend you some of my aether..." you say to her more suggestively.“Yes! I love the taste of aether!” Katlin says in a pumped up manner.Not so bad. You got through the dense rock that was Katlin, and so far there have been no interrup-“Oh look at Brooklyn the stud!” Nona says wearing a wide grin with a bright white and yellow waitress uniform below that.OH GOD DAMNIT SON OF A BITCH“Oh? You know this woman Brooklyn?” Stacy asks.
who was Nona again?
>>30810108The Bard from Brooklyn's study circle
>>30810044"She is a member of my study group."
>>30810131Thanks.>>30810044"Stacy, Katlin, This is Nona, An Okerian Bard who's in the study group I joined..."
"Stacy, Katlin, This is Nona, An Okerian Bard who's in the study group I joined..." you reply showing her Nona.“Greetings, pleasure to meet you.” Both the twins reply in unison.“Oh! Going for the old fashion Gemelli threesome huh!?” Nona says patting you on the shoulder.“I-I beg your pardon?” Stacy asks.“Oh don’t worry! Brooklyn is good as good! I’m sure he’ll treat you well!” Nona says patting you on the shoulder. “So what can I getcha? The Orange Juice and Strawberry Kiwi juice is on special for today!”“...A three of what?” Katlin then asks.
>>30810303Wait since when does Nona know we're a man?
>>30810348I'm more wondering when Katlin started taking idiocy pills
>>30810348Should be 'she'll'My bad
>>30810303"You won't believe who I saw earlier."
>>30810511Are you deliberately trying to kill the mood?>>30810303Turn on aether site. If she's fibbing the way I think she is, covert tentacle teasing is in order.
>>30810562>Turn on aether site. If she's fibbing the way I think she is, covert tentacle teasing is in order.Ah, the old standby. Fun times are ahead.
>>30810562>implying there was a mood to begin with
The first thing you do is turn on your aether sight, trying to see if you can see if you can get any hints that Nona is lying. Seeing in Dark vision, you see that Nona’s aura is a dark blue (suspicion). Hm... Not enough to tell for sure that she’s lying, but it should be enough to do something like a small rap on her rearside with a darkness tentacle. ...Which you do rather well actually. And that’s *exactly* what you are doing now!“...Ow!” Nona says jumping up in place.“You alright?” Stacy asks.“Yea... I think so...” Nona says looking behind her while rubbing her rear, completely confused to what just happened. “Oh so sad that the conversation was cut off, we’ll continue this never. As for juice, I’ll have the Orange Juice please!” you say to Nona.“Circle of OJ coming right up!” Nona says happily going back.You only give off a small sigh as she goes back behind the counter for now.“Brooklyn, did you slap that woman’s posterior with a tentacle?” Stacy asks.“Uh...”“Because I wouldn’t object~.” Stacy replies fluttering her eyebrows.
>>30810876"That could be arranged. After all, as your teacher its my responsibility to ... discipline you when necessary."Huh, I meant Katlin but that works too.Teach me not to use indefinite pronouns
>>30810938Huh, it really is difficult to type innuendo.
"That could easily be arranged. After all, as your teacher it’s my responsibility to... discipline you when necessary." you reply back with a small grin.Stacy can only chuckle playfully in return as she hides her face behind the menu.“...So was this a test and did we fail it or something?” Katlin asks breaking the moment.(Getting tired now, gonna head to bed now. Will update tomorrow before class)
>>30811140Night. Also, what does Katlin look like on Aether vision TMAnyway the correct answer is "Oh she passed, you on the other hand need some remedial lessons."
>>30811140See ya in the morning.Nona is just so completely oblivious it's hard to believe she's actually a succubus. OR IS SHE?
>>30811140About 90% sure Katlin is just messing with us. We must punish her.
>>30812595>ignore biggest threat to our plans since the arrival of draugr in old TO in an attempt to get laid>call NPC obviousnever change /tg/, never change
>>30813110Well, our plan /is/ to ignore him. Point the blame for the draugr at the undead, get out of dodge and keep a low profile.Direct conflict with him will, at best, have us all slaughtered. We're just going to stay under his radar until he goes away again.
>>30813170>depending entirely on Dis ignoring our plan to point the blame at the undeadYou can't really believe sand would introduce him and not use him do you?
>>30813188Not all characters have to be used as soon as they are introduced...our encounter with Dis could serve as a reminder of how little power we have compared to the big boys, a motivator to train and improve ourselves...After all, eventually we are going to end up fighting him. Hopefully it will be on our terms once our rebellion/liberation movement has become active and we have significantly increased in power...Though yes, we should be careful of doing things that may attract his attention...
>>30815127Except you forget all the foreshadowing which is standard in sandact storytelling. The last time we ignored it we ended up being attacked by surprise by out undead body and I'm not making that error again.
>>30815254Not the anon your arguing, but if you think that the moment the pride demon general Dis shows his head that we should start shit with him, your deluded.We knew he was coming, and it does not change our plans, merely means we have to be more careful and thorough in our plans execution so we don't end up facing him.
>>30815279>Prepare contingencies when super powerful enemy that could destroy all our efforts shows up>starting shit with himStop putting words in my mouth
>>30815303thats what I'm getting from your arguments anon, if you don't want me to draw those conclusions from your posts, then please be more eloquent and elaborate in your reasoning
>>30815303The plan proposed -the one you seem to be objecting to- is to point the Pride Demon attention elsewhere and keep a low profile.Avoid conflict with enemies that can push our shit in and build our forced quietly.Do you disagree with this plan? Do you want to face him directly? If you have something to add, go for it.
>>30815532And how do you cause something major enough that it will point the pride demons without them acting against us again?
>>30815567By using a throw away identity, choosing our target and time carefully (IE, when the important pride demons are sleeping) and getting in and out quickly.
>>30815586Except that both possibilities we have>Creating a dead zone>Blotting the sunAre unknown to us, saying we'll use stealth when it might require large scale rituals and not leave us a choice on the matter is irresponsible. You also forget that we need to shield ourselves from Fate rituals that might not care about our throw away identity. You also forget that we will likely be betrayed soon anyways.
>>30815685We're trying to frame them, not do their work for them. Its a throwaway terrorist attack and there are ways to shield from fate, some of which our allies probably can do.
>>30815685So you're basically saying that Sandact has set up a situation where we are fucked no matter what? Well I feel safe in ignoring you.
>>30815738>terrorist attackEven then we will have to do some of their work otherwise it will just be pinned on succubus again.>>30815753I'm saying we were given all the 'foreshadowing' we needed to prepare for it not that we were fucked.
>>30815738>Half-assed "terrorist attack"You can't be serious can you?
>>30815793>I'm saying we were given all the 'foreshadowing' we needed to prepare for it not that we were fucked.How? Say something constructive or sit back and enjoy the ride.
>>30815855That was literally the plan. Impersonate another draugr in such a way that the blame is pinned on undead while attacking some sort of pride demon target.
>>30815793Either start making actual constructively reasoned and well explained arguments and alternatives or shut up.
>>30815685>Creating a dead zone>Blotting the sunWe're not trying to do that. No one ever said to do that. Those are the plant/ambitions of the antagonistic undead groups in the city.We intend to frame one of them for the draugr shit. Since the draugr is undead itself, and there is zero evidence of anyone else being connected to it, they seem like the best scape-goats.We have the same powers and skill set as the dragur and we're shape-shifters.The plan is to have a ''dragur'' attack something, then have some ''Vampires'' act as back-up and destroy something that will piss off the Pride Demons.Leave Pride Demon witnesses that can report they saw a dragur and some other undead causing the attack..... Then cover our tracks and just keep our heads down.
>>30815901>>30815874So the 'plan' is "attack pride demon holding and hope they think it's undead doing it" that's it? Why did we send Ada to uncover the undead plans then? Why are we even planning to look into dead zone and sun blotting ritual? How is this a plan?
>>30815962No you calamitous fuckwit, the point of looking into their plans and such is so that we can attack something that would be a convincing target for the actual undead.
>>30815962>Use shape-shifting powers to take form of undead.>Attack something, using the same MO as the Dragur.>Leave Pride Demon witnesses that can report undead were responsible for the attack.>Cover tracks and keep out heads down while the Pride Demons focus their attention on their prime suspects.We asked Ada to gather info on the different factions so we know who to frame. We're looking into the rituals and stuff to choose the best scape-goat.Instead of just complaining because this plan doesn't measure up to you Machiavellian brilliance, make a fucking suggestion.If you can think of something to improve the plan. Speak up.If you think you have a better plan all together, let's hear it.
>>30816077>>30816082Honestly, I think we should just ignore him
>>30816082Ditch the attack, make it look like a faction is accelerating their projects, dead zone seem the most obvious one at this point. Any false flag attack at this point in time is unpredictable at best since no one will claim it and succubus do have access to necromancy.
>>30816112They are already (falsely) assuming Succubus responsibility for the attacks.They are currently gearing up for a full-scale Succubus Hunt.Either we shift the blame onto someone more deserving, or we get fucked.>Frame someone else.>Get Fucked.Currently there is no option 3. Unless you have another option, stop your asinine complaints.
>>30816112>make it look like a faction is accelerating their projects, dead zone seem the most obvious one at this point.How the fuck could we do that? We don't know shit about doing that.If it was that easy, they would have done it themselves.More to the point. Attacks have ALREADY happened. We need to pin the blame for these attacks on someone else.We don't just want to start shit between the Pride Demons and Undead for the fun of it. We need to pin the attacks on them. Provoking conflict for some other reason won't do shit to help us.
>>30816185No factions has any reason to do an attack with Dis in town. Why would they? Succubi are already taking the brunt of the blame, the two options that this give them is cut their losses and wait for Dis to go aways or finish whatever you were doing covertly and hope it's enough to deal with the pride demon once they are weakened by the hunt.
>>30816303Alright, need to make a quick store run, but when I return I'll update
>>30816303This, the only faction as far as we are aware that might have had a reason to attack with a high ranking demon in down was Celestia and they're out of the game at the moment
>>30816303As another anon put it, our current options are:>Frame someone else.>Get Fucked.We'll just have to make it look like another faction was responsible. If we plant enough evidence, -and with the complete lack of evidence point to anyone else- the Pride Demons won't really have anyone else to focus on.
>>30816303>>30816498Gentlemen, your still not being constructive and proposing modifications to the plan or alternatives.
>>30816640>Point out flaws>Offer counterproposalThe only answer I get is>We have no choice but to do it this way>>30816624Except that attacking the pride demon isn't our only solution to frame another faction. Especially when the faction we're trying to frame has nothing to gain and everything to lose from such an attack.
Wouldn't it be convenient if the pride demon random interrogations had several people commenting on some kind of increased Undead activity around the areas where the various attacks occurred...
>>30816726>Except that attacking the pride demon isn't our only solution to frame another faction.We haven't even picked the target yet. The basic requirements are:>Something with Pride Demon witnesses (or witnesses a Pride Demon would listen to).>Something the Pride Demons care about, so it'll get their attention.>Something the Undead would care about/have reason to attack.>Something we can take. No good attacking something that will just fuck us up.We're still waiting on Ada with the list of possible targets.
>>30816818So you don't even have a plan, just a general idea on something that Ada might or might not find and you're arguing it's the only solution?
>>30816808indeed, but will our fellow anons realize such a dastardly cunning plan or just completely forget like always
>>30816916My plan was simply to make it look like the non-vampire undead faction is ready to create the dead zone, have someone 'leak' that information or even better make a pride demon patrol stumble upon the 'proof' and watch as everything unfold. But it seems people want to see blood so whatever.
>>30816956The problem with that is, it won't solve our problem. If the Pride Demons catch the Undead advancing their plans.... They'll probably do something about it.It won't, however, do anything to shift the blame for the attacks. The Succubus Hunt will still go forward and we'll still be fucked.>>30816808We've already asked Ada to start the rumour mill working. Get people asking questions about who could be behind the attacks. Have them speculate about the different factions.Make it so everyone isn't automatically just assuming the Succubi are responsible.>>30816872Who said it was the only solution? It's just the only viable solution anyone's come up with. Either do better or stop back-seat-planning.
“Yes, but don’t worry, I’ll plan to dole out the punishments later~.” you say to Katlin.“Oh... I hate punishments!” Katlin says fuming a bit.“Oh don’t worry, I think you’ll tend to enjoy this punishment~.” Stacy replies.“...But isn’t enjoying a punishment the opposite of a punishment?” Katlin then asks.“You’ll see~.” Both you and Katlin reply in unison.The rest of the date goes fairly well, despite Nona small bits of prodding. After the dinner and taking the twins back to their house, promising the ‘punishment’ later, which is good as now you have some additional time to finish up your shopping just in time for your family reunion.******Having trouble thinking of how to continue, so I’ll just cut it here instead of forcing myself to continue.Next week we’ll actually START ON TIME, and have some... interesting things happen!
>>30817165>Next week we’ll actually START ON TIME, and have some... interesting things happen!Unless you forget again, thanks for running sand>>30817142It does, if we make it look like it's set to activate after they finished their hunt, with the right 'proof' they might also find out that this was a set up.
>>30817203>with the right 'proof' Any clues how to do that? We have zero knowledge on how to fake Necromancy or Ghost Field shit.We know for a fact we can disguise ourself at a dragur and wreck some shit. We're good at that.It's a much simpler plan, we know we have the skills and knowledge to pull of and has a lot less to go wrong.>if we make it look like it's set to activate after they finished their huntIf all we do is make it look like the Undead were trying to take advantage of the distraction, it won't do anything to shift the blame from us.

Basic divide and conquer strategy.
>>30817326>We make it look like the undead are the one that attacked Dio CastleThat's what my plan was for. I also suggested a viable method for doing it.

With way more points of failure. And relying a lot more on things out of our control.The Master Necromancer we know, doesn't want anything to do with Necromancy. We'd have to spend days/weeks researching what 'evidence' to create and how to create it. (if that's even possible) We have zero guarantee the Pride Demons will buy the evidence or that they'll follow it to the conclusions we want.Most importantly. This will take time. The Succubus Hunt is gearing up now. If the fighting's already broken out, there's a good chance nothing we do will be able to stop it.The other plan is far less complicated. Fewer points of failure. Less parts that are out of our control. Most importantly, it's a lot quicker. We just need to select a suitable target. It's a Smash & Burn, the attack will take little planning.
>>30817595>Need to bring in reluctant partner.Have her teach us how to do it we don't need to have her take along>Need to figure out what evidence to fabricate.We need something that look like it's able to create a dead zone and their involvement in Dio castle attack >Need to figure out how to fabricate it.Same as first answer>Need to figure our how to tie it to the Undead.Dead Zone>Need to arrange for the Pride Demons to 'find' it.Easily done with a well placed suggestion>Need to ensure the Pride Demons will draw the conclusions we want them to.That also apply to the attackWhile your attack has it's own drawbacks>Need to find the right target when the pride demon are on full alert>Need to fabricate and plant evidence that the undead did it>Need to find a way to actually explain the undead faction lack of rational plan>Need to ensure the Pride Demons will draw the conclusions we want them to.As pointed out, no factions other than the succubi have anything to gain from such an attack at this point, just smash and burning will just look like they are trying to set up someone else and they'd be right in thinking so
