Emerging from the sea after your visit to secure the alliance of the water elementals, you hoist yourself up onto the pier of the docks, dripping wet with seawater.The people of this little pirate haven are crowding around you, yet keeping their distance, after your proclamation of Exalted status. Which was going to be really hard to keep hidden anyway at this point, and you wanted to make it clear that you are not a god.But you have another problem right now. One that you seriously never considered: while you were swimming, someone stole your clothes.>search for the thief>ask the people around you to catch the thief>ask the people around you if they have seen your tabard>forget about the dress, go find Tia/Mikahil/Rubel/Quint/Yagate (pick one)>other

>Who are we?Maka, an exiled noble recently Exalted as a Zenith-caste Solar. She's in the western city of Tianna as a guest of queen Amata (DB), an old friend. Abyssals are targeting the city for conquest, Lintha pirates have infiltrated it with spies and agents, and half the island is controlled by paranoid Lunars. Fun times. You have just made a deal for the water elementals of the sea to fight with you against the fae when the lunars of the Three Rivers will attack the swamp.

So, any passing drawfags wanna sketch us up Maka in her Tabard outfit?
Rolled 10>>30813078>ask the people around you if they have seen your tabard
"...has anyone seen my clothes?" you ask to the mass of people ogling you.The reply is slow and confused, but you see some people nod to themselves and comment "so THAT's why she's naked!" or something like that.Some work up the courage to ask what your clothes look like, even."Mhh... It's a white silk tabard, open to the sides, with a golden border... About this long..." you begin to explain, but are interrupted by murmurs from the deep of the crowd. Some cries, some screaming.Then, the crowd parts and surrounds a dirty-looking kid dressed in ragged clothing, desperately clutching your tabard to his chest as the peopoe try and rip it from his hands. He's bleeding from a shallow wound on his forehead, and is cheek is badly bruised.A lobbed rock hits him in the back of the head, and he lets go of your dress, which is repossessed by the crowd and quickly passed to you.Amid the cries of "thief" and "scum", the citizens begin to kick him around, and some begin to pick up more rocks. Other tell you "he's not one of us" evidently fearful that you will punish them as well, for his crime.>get dressed, leave to find Tia/Mikahil/Rubel/Quint/Yagate (pick one)>stay and watch>ask the islanders to leave the punishment to you (what?)>rebuke the islanders, protect the thief>other (what?)

>>30814135Well, we've got all this delicious brown skin that we're showing off pretty much all of to everyone, it'd be no good if it started to get all dry and chalky.Besides, it's a too trivial task for our other exalted to do (except in bed), and it's not terribly appropriate for our pirate minions to do it.Some young kid is perfect for the job.>>30814147Either works, really. We've slept with more girls than boys so far.
Rolled 6>>30814147I'm pretty sure we're not going to actually have sex with him, but him stammering or blushing around us would be funny
>>30814167This. Having a servant kid around to do small tasks is pretty appropriate for Maka's High Priestess social station, too.The amusement of poking fun at him/her when they're all flustered from having to rub oil into Maka's assorted bits is just Icing.
"...thank you for finding my clothes." you mutter distractedly as you don your tabard. The silk cloth clings to your wet body suggestively, or so you presume judging from the reactions.Then, you step in the middle of the impromptu stoning. "... Alright, stop. There's no need for this. I'll handle his punishment."The replies of the crowd include "You needn't concern with this!", "Kill him for this sacrilige!", "She's going to drag him back into the sea?" "Maybe eat him?" "Leave it to her!" and a varied, indistinguishable cacophony, but the rocks stop flying.The kid is all bloody and bruised, and is shaking from fear and shock. He doesn't look a year above 13, with dirty clothes and wild hair. He has "homeless orphan" written all over him, a kind you've seen all too often in this island. You have to hoist him up and carry him away since he doesn't look like he's going to move on their own. He's amazingly light.You move away, but the crowd follows you for a bit, some still lured by your poorly-clothed body and others apparently perversely interested to learn how you will punish the thief.As you leave the village and whatever little farmland there is around it, however, these people mostly give up, bit by bit, until you're left alone with the little rascal in a small clearing of the sparsely forested island, thick with rocks and undergrowth.The moment you let him go, he kicks and scuttles and rolls on the ground and runs away, hiding in the bushes with a horrified scream.>kill him>drag him to sea>eat him>scold him>give him a beating>let him go>forgive him>ask him why he stole your clothes>ask him why he's so scared>ask him about himself>tell him about yourself>ignore him, return to the village>other?

soc + zenith = 10 2 1 10 6 5 7 = 5 successes"...I'm not some kind of monster, you know." you call out to the thick bushes where the kid is hiding.No reply comes, and you continue: you're quite sure he's still listening. "I'm not going to hurt you. I just want to know something: why did you take my dress?""...it looked expensive." you hear him muttering, still hidden."I imagine it is. It's a gift from Queen Amata Tai Tianna." you reply."...I'm sorry."You can't help but smile. "...no, you're not. You're only sorry because you got caught. You needed the money, right? To eat. You feel like you weight ten, twenty kilos. I felt your ribs jutting out of your chest. You're not really sorry, and you shouldn't be."You hear a frushing noise as he pops out from the undergrowth, crying from a mix of shock, fear and relief . He looks even more mangy and sickly than when you first saw him, with leaves and branches stuck in his hair and clothes like this."What's your name?""...Regis.""Your parents?" you already guess the answer."Dad died at sea fishing." he replies, trying to stop sobbing and put up a brave face. "Mom caught the chills a year later." then, with a hint of pride: "I can live alone.">let him go>let him go, let him keep the tabard>ask him to come back with you to Tianna, saying Amata will provide for him>ask him to come with you, you will provide for him.
>>30814240>forgive himHe DIDN'T steal our clothes. He found a piece of gold-embroidered silk discarded on the docks. Then, when we explained it was ours, he gave it back. Picking up valuable trash abd then giving if back when he found out we intended to keep it isn't 'stealing.'Anyway, I expect Maka has some special sympathy for a homeless orphan.

>>30814527> ask him to come with usI expect Amata will allow us a personal servant - and if not he should be easy enough to provide for regardless. We don't have a butler/seneschal yet, after all. He'll be our manservant in training.
>>30814569And our personal oiler.

He's getting the gift of learning a valuable and elite profession (royal servantry; seriously, that's super elite) and being provided food, lodging, and so forth as payment rather than as charity.

Rolled 9>>30814527>ask him to come with you, you will provide for him.>hugI'm already looking forward to Amata's reaction to this
>>30814593Well yes, but that doesn't mean we can't be all touchy-huggy-feely. Maka's all about the physical contact.
>>30814580Big honkin' guts for a kid. At this rate he'd dive down a Yozi's throat for us by the time he's 30.

"How about you come with me, then?" you invite him."...hueeh?" is his very honest, very surprised reply, filtered through his closed nose."I'll give you a job." you wink."...but I don't know how to do anything." he replies."It's okay. You look like a smart kid. You'll learn quickly." you put a hand on his shoulder, then gently pull him to you in a delicate hug. You feel his tense, bony body losing tension and finally relax in your arms."...I'm sorry...""I already told you, you have nothing to be sorry about." you squeeze him a bit tighter. "Just... From now on, you're only allowed to take my clothes when I ask you to." you joke.You let him go as you realize he's struggling for air, his head stuck deeply in your soft chest.

>>30814652Are we not agreed she has to woo and date us first before we agree to this whole married thing.Plus there is a ceremony that needs to be had. We are not married yet.
>>30814920Arguably the whole lunar bond situation counts as a preemptive wedding ceremony, but whatever.It's not like she's ever going to take no for an answer, so it's really just a matter of how long we want to drag it out.
>>30814920>LunarShe claimed it to be so. That was the ceremony.
>>30814920Yeah, I want her to romance us. She's still basically a total stranger.
Rolled 10>>30814863Tia: So let me get this straight. We are recruiting murderous pirates and gods to fight the Raksha. I am a shape shifting murder machine bound to you, and you intend to go fight Abyssals and Lintha. And you are brinking this scrawny kid along. Why do people say *I* am the unhinged one?
>>30814945>Maka: "Because I have huge stonking tits, darling, and your eyes go a but wild when you smile."
>>30814945"Because pirates and gods can't give a pedicure for shit."
>>30814920Well, depending on EF's metaphysics just remember that we might be officially, legally and legitimately married to Tia according to whomever governs such affairs in the celestial bureaucracy.
Am I the only person curious about makas first age incarnation?I imagine nude translucent warstrider clad murder dancing, and specialized charms to entice everyone who sees her, effortlessly and innocently ruining mortal men and women just by being near them. Dooming them to forever lust after an unattainable perfection.
Rolled 9>>30814988Not without the proper ceremony we are not.Com on we want to actually have her go out on dates and such and get a engagement party, a bachelors party for the both of us, and then a wedding night.
>>30814995Well, given Tia's reaction on meeting us I'm 80% sure Maka's first incarnation was a guy. Other than that the rest of your idea fits fine.
>>30815005our metaphysics =/= exalted metaphysics.If the Celestial Bureaucracy says your married, your marriage is basically carved into the structure of the universe.
>>30814995>>30815016As it was said that can be arranged. Boy, girl we are Exalted. A bit in twilight to get some shaping sorcery and medical knowledge and we can change from one to the other. And allow us to plonk godblooded everywhere.
>>30815005Oh I want her to court us (it will be comically adorable) and a nice ceremony to demonstrate our love and commitment would be acceptable if a waste of time and resources if not heavily propagandized to help solidify our rule over Gem, but I'm just pointing out that any metaphysical benefits we might get out of the deal we're probably already benefiting from.
>>30815021He's saying he wants Maka to request a courting period ands official ceremony regardless of how Wxaltedfag's Lunar Mate metaphysics works. He - and I as well - want romance and to play it all up instead of going straight to 'welp, we're married now.' Just because some heavenly justice of the peace says we're married - and everything Talon said suggests that's not the case, and that Tia is just being clingy - that doesn't mean we're not going to have our beautiful royal ceremony.
>>30815041Why would we want to gender shift? Maka's pretty awesome the way she is.
>>30815055Temporarily.So we can do things like make dozens of godblooded children instead of one at a time.Also getting Tia pregnant.
>>30815051Pretty much.>>30815055Why not? Its a excellent disguise. People are searching for Maka the awesome Queen bitch of the Seas, and around the corner comes this guy, and walks past everyone not being given any grief.
Rolled 2>>30815061>Also getting Tia pregnantMeh.If we want children without Maka being pregnant then we can just summon a neohma
Hey, Exaltedfag? Last thread, some of us realized we weren't sure how many dice your average soldier has in their attack pool. I thought it was probably three, with a green recruit fresh from training likely having Physical 1 and Dawn/Warrior 1, a seasoned and elite veteran having 2/2, and your average professional soldier having 2/1 or 1/2. And untrained peasant would, of course, just be 1.Is that accurate? Higher? Lower? It would give us a good benchmark for how good Maka is at stuff and how much better people get with training charms.
>>30815074Just not the same.
>>30815061Why would Maka want to let someone else bear her child? Maka has been a woman her whole life and rather seems to enjoy it. She would probably prefer to be the wife/mother with Tia being the husband/father.
>>30815097>>30815074Don't tell me you don't want to see those silver Lunar tattoos stretch with a pregnant belly.
>>30815061Eh, not really my interest since I always feel like that gambit is cheating and ought to be met in kind by a DM. "You have spent ten years breeding and training a thousand sunblood enlightened children. But now, as you stair at the legions of abyssal offspring, warriors beyond number, led by their parents, marching on your domain, you can't help but wonder whether sitting on your hands for a decade was the best use of your time." Obviously it wouldn't really take a decade unless EF outlaws time dilation charms, but industrial scale production of god bloods always seemed like an antagonist favored plan to me.
>>30815097>>30815102>implying they can't get each other pregnant
>>30815106>time dilation charmsNot a thing in Exalted, and it's pretty high-tier sorcery for that time-dilated Elsewhere enclave. And it warps time in the opposite direction with very little time passing within.
>>30815097I doubt it. We have too much stuff to do that does not afford such prolonged leisure time as pregnancy. Plus we are exalted this is probably the only excuse Maka needs to live out all her fantasies and try it all out.
>>30815102I'm more into a hot as fuck sun priestess, pregnant and wearing a loose toga, her condition more a mark of motherly pride than an inconvenience.
>>30815139>>30815102Look okay guys we can have both of them pregnant, mmkay?
>>30815124Didn't lunars get their own little pocket dimension that they could accelerate the passage of time within for the purpose of training up their solar mates and allies? Could have sworn that happened at some point.
>>30815139>>30815102This is making me a bit uncomfortable. Can we shelve this whole avenue of discussion, please.
>>30815134Pregnancy doesn't require downtime except in, like, the final month for exalted women. But honestly, this is in the 'maybe someday' category for me. We're not going to make babies anytime soon unless Tia accidentally knocks us up.
>>30815157No. Their pocket dimension has normal time flow.
>>30815134We're exalted. Why would our pregnancy slow us down or cause issues? I can easily see Maka go toe to toe with an infernal with a baby ready to come out.
>>30815158Beautiful motherhood makes you uncomfortable, anon?
>>30815178Huh. Never mind then.
>>30815186Especially with Physical plus Zenith Resistance/Survival effects. "Condition Denying Form." Remove all penalties from things like illness, poison, injury, pregnany, and so forth, including guaranteeing the child's safety to birth as long as we're still alive. Have it be a permanent, Hardship Surviving Spirit type effect. That would be a solid charm also useful for pregnancy instead of something strictly for pregnancy.

>>30815236>Lu BuMuh nigga.
>>30815236http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VepXN0_usEsLu Bu? Yeah, this would fit right into exalted.
>>30815236Perfect, thanks for the clarification. So, yeah, once we get Tiger Warrior, we can train people to 3/3, and keep going as we keep leveling. That's fucking sweet.
>>30815186Wouldn't pregnancy technically count as a disease effect? Meaning doing that would cause auto still-birth?
>>30815308Not seeing the connection. The feats counts as being a part of the mothers body, for being another healthy part of the mother, for the duration of the pregnancy.
>>30815260More Dawn you mean. More Dawn is only 6 Experience. More Physical is way more expensive. And yeah, WITHOUT ANY CHARMS we're only BETTER THAN A HARDENED MILITARY VETERAN.
>>30815308No. Charms aren't hunter-killer drones and pregnancy is natural and healthy. Also, the charm I proposed wouldn't eliminate diseases our poisons, just the penalties. Actually curing them would be a Twilight Medicine charm.
Rolled 10>>30815326But phys is used for more than just fighting
>>30815345It also costs more than double what increasing Dawn costs and, since Solars are based on skills rather than attributes, wouldn't grant access to any new/better charms.
>>30815345We could get Dawn 4 for what it would take to increase physical once, and Dawn 4 actually unlocks new, better powers for us to take. We're Solar, not Lunar, so Physical doesn't do that for us.
It takes a few minutes for Regis to calm down.When he's done sobbing, he just says: "...I'll work for you.""I'll be sure to treat you well." You reply. He's just too cute. Of course, he'll need to put on some weight, and decent clothes, but you'll worry about that in due time.You realize that the sun is about to set.It's probably best to head back to the village and look for Tia and the others. "...We'll go back to town.""But..." He replies, hesitant and fearful."It's all right. They aren't going to hurt you. It was all a misunderstanding. Besides, I'll be with you, right? I'll protect you." You try and give him some courage. He quietly nods.On your way back to the village, after a bit of uncomfortable silence, he starts asking you questions."...So... what am i supposed to do?"You think about it. "Well, you'll run errands for me. Run errands, like bring me clothes, help me brush my hair in the morning..." You gesture bending an arm behind your back, showing that there are points you can't comfortably reach. "...things like that. You know, a household..." You stop yourself short of using the word "servant", thinking of one that will sound cooler to a kid. "...butler.""Will I have a uniform?""...Sure, why not." You say, noticing how much he seems to like the idea. "With the, er, buttons and everything. Also, well, of course, three meals a day, comfy bed whenever possible, baths...""Baths?""Your duties will also be to clean me in the bath and dry me up afterwards. Also oil me." You grin, testing how precocious this kid is. Judging by his massively flustered reaction, quite a lot.Some more time passes. As the sun sets into twilight, you return to town. "...So you're Exalted? What does that mean?""...It basically means I have been given powers by a god."He oohs, fascinated. "What god? The island god? Father Ocean?"You shake your head and point westward. "The Sun."He oohs some more. "...Why did he give you those powers?"(cont.)

I'm on a network where twitter is completely blocked. Believe me, I'm looking for workarounds but none seems to work at all.Right now I'm looking for online friends who I can trust with my password to make the post for me.

>>30815385>"Your duties will also be to clean me in the bath and dry me up afterwards. Also oil me."I assume he considers these perks rather than chores.
"I'm not too sure. We talked only once, and I didn't understand everything." You explain to Regis, who seems to take the statement that you had a conversation with the Sun quite in stride. "But I think he wants me to protect Creation.""From what?" Ah, the inquisitiveness of kids."From... all the bad things, I imagine? The Deathlords, the Fair Folk, the demons, normal people who are being evil or stupid or both... that sort of things. I like to think that this is why I've been given these powers."After a quick walk across town, you can't seem to find Tia. You begin to wonder what you're going to need to do to get in touch with her, when you see something you weren't expecting: Yagate White-Tooth and a small band of his savage-looking pirates. He's heavily bandaged, but standing upright on his own two feet, which is an impressive feat even accounting for his enormously robust constitution.He seems to have been looking for you, actually. The moment he sees you, he walks straight up to you, in the middle of the road (attracting some onlookers, probably curious about how much bloodshed there will be THIS time), and flat-out says: "...We need to talk. Here. Now."His men seem as puzzled as you are by this odd development. On his part, Regis hides behind you.>Make it clear that he's not allowed to use that tone of voice with you>Listen to what he has to say>Ignore him>Interrupt him, state your offer again>Attack him>Other?
>>30815435does not help seeing as that was 3 hours ago and he only just tweeted it
Rolled 8>>30815550>Listen to what he has to sayProbably Tia in his form
>>30815550>Listen to what he has to sayThat's Tia shapeshifted.
>>30815550>Listen to what he has to sayIf he's going to risk getting almost killed again to talk, then it should be important.
>>30815550>Make it clear that he's not allowed to use that tone of voice with youDoes Maka have to punch some bitch again?
>>30815550If he's taking that tone of voice with us after the thrashing we gave him, there's probably something pretty serious going on.>Listen to what he has to sayMake it clear that we'll give him another thrashing if it's not worth our time after taking that tone with us, though.
>>30815550>Listen to what he has to sayIt's not like we've got the strength to fight right now anyway.
>>30815550Cross arms, raise eyebrow.
>>30815550>>Listen to what he has to say
>>30815550Damn. I thought the Willpower option won out.
Rolled 6>>30815550>Listen to what he has to sayThen talk, but it's better worth my time
>>30815550>Listen to what he has to sayIf its really him. What he has to say must be really important if he can't spare the time to drag us off somewhere where no one can see us.
>>30815590Compassion was probably ahead when EF started writing.
>>30815570>Probably Tia in his form>>30815575>That's Tia shapeshifted.Does that mean she ate his heart?
Rolled 3>>30815612Or she has the knack that let's you take a form for a short time with just a drop of blood
>>30815606Fair enough. I hope he starts making 'Writing now, voting over' posts, but it's no biggie either way.
>>30815612You don't have to eat their heart, just drink their blood.But yes, she probably ate him. Lunars are insanely-terrifying skinwalkers who eat your families and wear their faces with only tiny imperfections letting you know it's someone else.
>>30815590He used both the Willpower and Compassion choices together.That vote was suspicious as hell so it's fine either way.
"...I've decided to give up." The ferocious beastman says to you,with a tone of voice so strong and bold that you almost misunderstand the meaning of his words."...You mean that...?" You ask, a bit confused."You want the Black Eye, my ship." he states."I want your ship AND your service." You point out. "The ship is useless without a captain.""You'll have to find another one, or have the crew elect a new one." He says, turning to them, who now look REALLY surprised. "...I realize that, if you want my ship, I can't exactly stop you. Take it, then. It's yours. But I can't work for you. I can't promise you any loyalty. Just... let me go. I'll disappear forever. When a captain is defeated, it's time for him to either die or retire.">Attack him.>Let him retire, ask the crew to elect a new captain that will answer to you.>Let him retire, ask the crew to wait for you to pick a new captain. (among them? / from outside the crew?)>Try and persuade him to stay as captain.>Try and force him to stay as captain.>Other?
>>30815669>Let him retire, ask the crew to elect a new captain that will answer to you.It's clearly Tia in disguise.
Rolled 2>>30815669>Let him retire, ask the crew to elect a new captain that will answer to you.
>>30815669>>Try and persuade him to stay as captain.Retire and do what, moisture farm? He's a pirate, he's OUR pirate.
>>30815669>Try and persuade him to stay as captain.Give it one shot to talk him out of it, but if he really wants to leave, let him be.
>>30815590They are about tied, so i had Maka express a mix of both.When most of the votes are split more-or-less-equally between two or three options, I try and create a narrative that attempts to encompass all three. Rather than just going with what had 1 or 2 votes more than the others.Of course, I'll do it when possible. If the actions are completely mutually exclusive, i'll count every single vote.
Rolled 2>>30815669>Let him retire, ask the crew to elect a new captain that will answer to you.>>30815690>>30815693It's Tia, trying to explain his disappearance.
>>30815694Makes sense to me. Like I said, it's not biggie. I was just surprised.
>>30815669>Let him retire, ask the crew to elect a new captain that will answer to you.Tia either convinced him or is masquerading as him. Either way, trust that she did her job, and did it well.Good job, Tia.
>>30815702I don't think Tia is the subtle type.
>>30815669>Let him retire, ask the crew to elect a new captain that will answer to you.Eh, this works.
>>30815718Then she might have threatened him into doing this.Either way, we said we would trust her, and this seems like something to trust she did her job on.
>>30815727Of course this is just another situation highlighting why saying "I trust you, so I don't need information" to someone who says they have a plan is stupid.
>>30815756I 100% agree. I was one of the people voting for sharing information to make sure we're not stepping on each other's toes. Operating blind is something Maka is confirmed shit at.
>>30815785>>30815756Third anon here agrees. Sadly i was not present then.Oh well..."There is nothing i can say that would make you change your mind?"
>>30815718And I don't think eating a dude's heart to take his form is particularly subtle.
He rules by strength, and then he got humiliated. He can't lead anymore.Of course, by that same logic, he couldn't refuse our challenge without looking weak or like a coward either, especially considering the trash we talked about him.He pretty much never had a choice.
Social + Zenith = 8 1 8 6 3 2 2 = 2 successesYou turn to his crew, who don't seem to know what's going on anymore. "...You guys.""Y-yes?" Someone answers. You're pretty sure they're quite terrified of you by now. Now you just need to turn that fear into healthy respect."I'm assuming ownership of the Black Eye, unless anyone has anything to object."No objections."Head back to your ship. Elect a new captain. As long as he's willing to deal with me, anyone willing to assume the responsibilities - and, of course, the rank and higher share of profits that come with it. If you're fine with renouncing piracy and becoming traders for me, that's all the best. Otherwise, you can stay as privateers under my contract, or become a military ship.""O... of what navy?" Someone asks, still not having everything clear. Understandable."Mine." You reply, adamantly."...Do what she says." Yagate growls. "...It was good fighting with you boys. But you're on your own from now on. Bring my farewells to the others."Bit by bit, the crew heads back to the ship and the crowd, seeing no blood, disperses as well, leaving you (with annexed Regis still hiding) and Yagate alone in the street."...It's you, right? Tia?" You lift an eyebrow.Under your eyes, the massive beastman shrinks down to the silk-clothed shape of your Lunar mate sporting a huge, and just as sharklike, grin. "Yeah, I'm not a terribly good impersonator. Crew might suspect something, but I don't think they'll do anything stupid. I made sure of that.""What did you do with the real Yagate?" You wonder."Kept him under observation for a while, from the window. It's not enough to eat their heart to turn into them, you know." You hear Regis shuddering. "There's a whole procedure. I'm more the kind that hunts by ambush rather than by chase, though, so it was quite discreet.""...But you DID eat his heart?" You ask, still trying to picture the image.(cont.)
"Oh, yeah." She nods, with a hint of evil gloating in her eyes and laugh. "By the way, he's huge!""...I did notice." You reply, confused by that statement, and by her use of the present tense. "He was almost three meters tall, and built as a brickhouse made of smaller brickhouses.""No, I didn't mean the stature!" And she waggles her eyebrows suggestively. "I'll show you in bed tonight... Besides, it has a really weird shape, and his skin is all rough and-"You cough. "Uh, Tia, not in front of the kid."It's only then that she notices Regis. He looks at her, still half-hidden behind you."Oh!" She exclaims. "How did you manage that in just two days? Besides, I'm pretty sure I've been careful the night before yesterday." You're not sure how to reply to her nonchalant statements, except maybe to note that that night was anything BUT careful. After a few seconds of Tia being crazy, you find the right words: "Er, no, no, he's just an orphan from here in the village. The people were about to stone him - well, long story short, I stepped in and offered him a job.""A job?" She replies.You look at him. "He's my butler. Oh, right, Regis, this is Tia, my-""I'm Maka's husband."Poor kid looks WAY out of his depth now, but he still manages to reply "Uh, pleased to meet you.""He's adorable." Is her first reply, sending a shiver down both your spines. "Are we adopting him?"Deciding to change the subject fast before this gets weird in front of a 13-years-old kid, you talk about...>...how to handle our relationship.>...how her "eat its heart, wear its skin" power works.>...what to do now.

I want to request/subtly demand a proper romancing, but this is probably not the time.She's not entitled to us without going through the proper courting.
>>30816092Agreed. I want her to make us swoon.
>>30816092>>30816108We do sleep with her, but we sleep with lots of people. There's a difference between being lovers and being husband and wife, at least for Maka.
Rolled 2>>30815993Good job, mikhail, rest, in that order.
Rolled 10>>30816092>>30816108also agreed, I'm totally fine with ruining some furniture with her, but I want her to try and earn it too, and not just assume nighttime is sextime automaticallysure, we're going to fuck the living shit out of her, but she could at least court us when we're not rolling around naked
Rolled 4>>30816121seconding this
Rolled 4>>30816121>>30816137remember to tell the second pirate ship where to show up, too
>>30816131Well currently she's in the same category as Amata (and Amata's children), (i.e. people we're fond of that we're happy to sleep with) she's just got bigger aspirations.She needs to learn that she's actually going to have to work her way to achieving said aspirations, though, instead of just claiming them outright immediately.
>>30816152Exactly. She's a lover and a friend, but she needs to romance us if she's going to claim husband.
Rolled 10>>30815993>...praising her for a well done job.>Meet up with MikahilAlso tell her we got some elementals on board.
>>30816181>she needs to romance us if she's going to claim husband.Sharkdick.
"...In any case, well done, Tia. You did well." You decide some praising is in order. You were a bit worried about her plan, but it seems to have worked.She smiles and leans onto you, clearly requesting, or rather, demanding, a hug as payment, which you oblige."...Let's get back to that inn and get a bed for the night. It was... a busy day. Besides, we still need to catch up with Mikahil.""And that Iohannes Quint pirate fellow, unless you're giving up on him." Tia points out as you make way to the rickety whorehouse that is probably not deserving of being called an "inn"."I don't know. I haven't decided yet. Tomorrow's the last day, right? We might still manage to find more allies."She nods. "Yep. The others are waiting us at Azure Lake at the dawn of the day after tomorrow.""...I'm hungry." Regis helpfully points out. In fact, you yourself have not exactly enjoyed many regular meals these days.A thought then strikes you: this dress (which is basically all you're carrying) doesn't exactly have pockets, and even if it had, you never carried money in Tianna, relying on Amata for everything. But you can't exactly ask anybody to put anything on the Royal Family's tab here in this pirate haven, can you?You stop in front of the door to the whorehouse, thinking about the problem for a moment.>Ask Tia if she can handle it.>Ask to put everything on a tab.>Try and fast-talk it out.>Point out to the owner that you're Exalted and asking for money from you would be unwise.>Ask the owner to be charitable and offer you food and board for the night for free.>Try and steal or pickpocket the money.>Offer your tabard as payment.>Offer your services as payment.>Offer Tia's services as payment.>Offer Regis' services as payment.>Admit that you have no money and try and find a zero-cost accommodation.
Rolled 8>>30816197>Ask Tia if she can handle it.Another use for our new butler, carrying stuff for us
>>30815993>>30815975>meet up with Mikahil>Take over the last Captain>Take over the island/town>Get a bed for some shuteye.Lets get this done right so when we come here we don't have to do it again.
>>30816197>Go take sharkboy's loot.Dude was a pirate captain. We killed him and took his stuff. Presumably that includes large portions of his petty cash.
>>30816197>>Ask to put everything on a tab.We're an Exalted currently taking over the local shipping lanes and in good standing with the nearest large city.It's not exactly like we're going to disappear.
Rolled 8>>30816197>sleep on one of our new ships
>>30816197>Offer your services as payment.A Quick fuck with a Smoking hot Solar Exalted has to be at least worth a room and a meal.
>>30816197I don't really want to mooch off of Tia as well, considering we're already mooching off of Amata, especially if we're then going to turn around and start demanding things like a proper courting from Tia.We'll come off like an ungrateful freeloader.
Rolled 1>>30816225but then we'd wake up the next morning cuddling with Tia while on the seafloor surrounded by what used to be our ship>>30816197>Offer your services as payment.
Rolled 8>>30816197> Put it on a tab. We have two Pirate ships under our command. They are not going to change base or anything so might as well open up a tab and pay up once we come back from our mission. Plus i am sure some ship crew or officers use the in so they don't want to loose customers.> Iohannes QuintLets try to get him tonight. Once we wake up we can take over the town, if there is so much as a organized administration of it, and if not we are going to make one once we come back from punching fae. And pay our tab.

Rolled 10>>30816412pretty much.
>>30816412But Sex and Violence are our most effective actions so far!
Rolled 9>>30816435and dancingwhy does everyone forget about the dancing
>>30816435but we only sex awesome peoplethis is a bartendr
>>30816442Don't forget making allies. We're fucking slick when it comes to making allies.
>>30816453Ehh, yes and no. We make a lot of big promises, but we haven't delivered on much, and so far we're mostly a liability to almost all of our allies.For everything we do for each of them, they have to pull our ass out of the fire or smooth over the consequences of our stupid actions three times.How many times has Tia saved us? How many political mines have we stepped on that Amata's had to defuse?
>>30816489That's /tg/ in a nutshell, overconfident and undercompetent.
>>30816489And how much have we done as far as saving Tianna and scoring it allies is concerned?We're actually doing an extremely solid job. We're one battle, one 24 hour fuck-marathon, and one sexy oil dance away from securing an alliance with three Lunars and their tribes, patronage of the island's primary volcano goddess, and an entire elemental court.
>>30816504We're only going to get away with it because we're bubbly and ditzy and hot for so long.I mean, Tia will probably stick with us, protect us, and help us no matter what we do because we're her waifu and she's smitten with us, but the rest are eventually going to get sick of our shit.
>>30816521>We're actually doing an extremely solid job. We're one battle, one 24 hour fuck-marathon, and one sexy oil dance away from securing an alliance with three Lunars and their tribes, patronage of the island's primary volcano goddess, and an entire elemental court.True, but considering our track record I'm not exactly confident we'll actually deliver on this without fucking things up somehow.I mean, I HOPE we will, but I'm not really expecting it.
>>30816521Definitely this. We've already saved Tianna from being conquered and almost single-handedly rebuilt its walls. The closest we came to bungling things is startling people when we cleared the streets of rubble and spoiled - then personally resolved - a counter-espionage op.We're actually doing fantastically. People who keep calling Maka a fuckup are pretty much completely wrong.
>>30816538Blame the dice. Even when /tg/ does make good plans, the random number generator can and will make us fuck up.
>>30816538>our track recordOur track record is fantastic. We've only made two mistakes, personally fixed one of them, and resolved the other by single-handedly carrying a quarry's worth of stone to fix a wall. Maka is doing GREAT. If she knew how to run a business, she would be strictly fantastic.Running a business is the ONLY thing she's had a hard time of so far. She's got a lot more going for her than just sex and violence.
"...Actually, Tia?""Huh?" She turns around just as she was about to enter the establishment. "...we have a ship in dock, we can sleep there." You point out."But I wanted to do a cool scene where we walk in and I toss the purse that I took from Yagate on the counter and say "Give us your best room and send us all of your whores" and then while everyone is surprised I'd sweep you off your feet and walk upstairs-""Right, we're definitely sleeping on our ship." You reply. Regis seems to enjoy your impromptu comedy skit. So you head back to the Bloodshark. On board there's just a skeleton crew, including Rubel Sareni, who welcomes you back onboard. "So I heard you've become the talk of town." He says, looking impressed. "You got in a fight with Yagate Sharktooth, got him to leave you his ship and abandon piracy - good riddance I might add - disappeared into the sea and returned, made a scene walking naked all around town, and saved a kid from being stoned. "What." Tia replies, depressed. "And I missed that?""...Tia." You point out. "You already saw me naked. Why are you sad? What would have changed if you had been there?""That I would have seen you naked some more?" She replies, clearly missing the point of your question."...I'm sorry, who is she?" Yagate asks, pointing at Tia. At this point, you decide to just let her introduce herself with what's quickly becoming her signature phrase."I'm Tia. Maka's husband."He scratches his forehead. "Your, er, husband is very affectionate." He says.In response, she grabs your arm and begins dragging you away. "We're getting a room."As you vanish below deck, you hear a crewman in the background complaining to the captain: "See? THIS is what happens when we leave our women on land alone with each other for too long! Man, I hate Storm Mothers."The conversation continues with Regis asking Rubel is he can make himself useful on board, but you can't follow it as it becomes too faint and distant.(cont.)
>>30816555>"But I wanted to do a cool scene where we walk in and I toss the purse that I took from Yagate on the counter and say "Give us your best room and send us all of your whores" and then while everyone is surprised I'd sweep you off your feet and walk upstairs-"Damn it Tia stop making me love you.We need romancing first!I am endlessly amused that we're totally the waifu and she's totally the protag in this situation.
>>30816555>"See? THIS is what happens when we leave our women on land alone with each other for too long! Man, I hate Storm Mothers."Those damn Storm Mothers, turning women into lesbians.The Ocean Father and other water/ocean spirits/gods adamantly agree, by the way. They LOVE when women get to come see them, and hate the Storm Mothers for being such cunts. But, then, the Storm Mothers can throw you an entire league with a gust of wind while nailing you with lightning the entire way, so what can you do?
>>30816555>As you vanish below deck, you hear a crewman in the background complaining to the captain: "See? THIS is what happens when we leave our women on land alone with each other for too long! Man, I hate Storm Mothers."HA!Come to think of it, I wonder if the West continues real-world navies' proud tradition of male-male sodomy.
>>30816584>I am endlessly amused that we're totally the waifu and she's totally the protag in this situation.Agree 100%. She's the protagonist who does cool shit and sees situations as scenes to be prepared in advance.

"...You're really eager." You note, as you let Tia carry yourself to the captain's room (the only private room on the ship) and toss you on the small bed. Small enough to be uncomfortable for a single person."Is... is it bad?" She stops, suddenly looking confused. "You don't want me to?"You take a deep breath and sit up on the bed, massaging your temples. As much as you want to avoid replying with a clichèd "It's complicated", it's hard to phrase it in other ways. Now that you're alone with her, it might be a good chance to sort things out.>The Solar Bond goes only one way, so you have trouble understanding her or keeping up with her.>She's being way too clingy and way too horny. You aren't going to disappear on her. She can leave you space.>Since you've only known her for a few days, you have trouble considering yourself "married" to her.>You do not consider the Solar Bond a "marriage" on your part, so Tia will have to actually marry you if she wants that.>You don't like the "roles" (you're the wife, she's the husband) that she has decided on, and you'd like to redefine them together.>You want to know if she has any long-term plans for your relationship.>You want her to be a bit more jealous and protective of you.>Actually, nevermind.

>>30816642You DO want to get the hell away from Tia?Because I was talking about the protagonist from Waifu Quest, and that whole quest revolved around freeing ourselves from his orbit. Tia seems much less odious.

She does not default to husband. She is firmly in "fond friend/acquantance and regular lover" territory at the moment.This does not mean we don't like her.
Rolled 4>>30816646I like>>30816667really emphasize the fact that we want to be romanced. We like her a lot for someone we just met, but we'd rather be wooed than claimed
>>30816667If we miss any romantic cues, I will feel very stupid. Or very annoyed, depending on whether I missed it as one of the voters or if the majority missed it.
>>30816646Wow, so many tasty choices. Let's see... if we can choose multiple, open with>The Solar Bond goes only one way, so you have trouble understanding her or keeping up with her.Then>Since you've only known her for a few days, you have trouble considering yourself "married" to her.I'll leave other votes for the rest.
>You don't like the "roles" (you're the wife, she's the husband) that she has decided on, and you'd like to redefine them together.Also potentially this. We don't actually dislike the roles, but this is another thing that's just been decided for us. While she's romancing us we can decide on that.Honestly at the moment we'll probably like it best if we do end up as her wife, though. Tia is very dashing, she plays the role very well.
>>30816741She really does make a fantastic husband, despite wearing a bride's gown.
>>30816741Also I don't know about "jealous", but the protectiveness thing is nice. I like it when she plays knight in shining armor for us.
>>30816601Debatable. Maka is the main political engine of the duo.Its just that Tia is more into Violence and Sex than Maka. Almost to the exclusion of everything else. Thus Tia can afford to do perpetually cool stuff, because she is invested *only* in doing cool stuff. I bet she is one of the Three Rivers only because Talon or Zaan roped her into it somehow and some tribes needed another lunar to gravitate around and did not want the others.
>>30816758>>30816760Say this to her."Between the two of us, you do make a very dashing husband."
>>30816768>Debatable. Maka is the main political engine of the duo.Again, she is our knight and our sword. We are her lady love. We handle the politicking, the ruling, the priestessing, and the being-adored-by-the-masses, while she devotes herself to us, protects us, and generally lives up to our affections.Courting.
>>30816791>dashing husbandChange it to 'dashing groom.' We're not married yet, but 'groom' and 'bride' would be a good thing for her to aim for.
>>30816795>>30816791>>30816768>>30816760>>30816758>>30816741We should probably find a way to say all that to her, TBH.
>>30816768>Maka is the main political engine of the duo.In creation, that's the woman's role. Heads of state are traditionally female. The Scarlet Empress, Queen Merula, and so forth. Queens, not kings.
>>30816811If we're going to be formal about it we should use the full term and call her bridegroom.It also spells out her role a bit better, and makes a pun on her choice of dress.
You all do realize that making her wait just means that when our wedding night finally does arrive and she's finally got permission to consummate the marriage as husband and wife she is going to absolutely wreck us because she's been looking forward to it for so long.We will need more Resistance charms.
Rolled 2>>30816869You're saying that like it's a bad thing
>>30816869>You all do realize that making her wait just means that when our wedding night finally does arrive and she's finally got permission to consummate the marriage as husband and wife she is going to absolutely wreck us because she's been looking forward to it for so long.Sounds good to me.>We will need more Resistance charms.Also on board for that. Maybe a rapid-healing-through-meditation Resistance charm too.
>>30816869And yes, I do realize that we'll probably keep sleeping with her in the interim, but there is a difference between regular sex and "finally getting to properly claim my wife" sex, especially to a girl like Tia.
Rolled 2>>30816869I see literally nothing wrong with this outcome, so long as either Exaltedfag or a good writefag from the smutthreads puts it up on a pastebin
>>30816869>>30816888>>30816890Oh, no, Maka will probably have the night of her life.I just want to make sure we all know what we're in for.
Rolled 4>>30816896EF always does FtB, so no chance of that, I think
>>30816838...We destroyed our room in a castle and learned a soak charm in the process of our first night with her. I don't think we could be "wrecked" any harder unless we found a huge open plain to spend the night where we wouldn't rearrange the terrain too much.
>>30816914After all she's going to have to do to earn that wedding night?She will find a way, I assure you. She is going to make that a night to remember.
>>30816914As long as we don't mind turning that plain into a canyon by morning, sure.
>>30816869We're going to keep sleeping with her, but tell her that we expect her to pull out all the stops - to find previously hidden stops to pull out - on our wedding night. That should do it.
>>30816914>Soak charmWe're out of essence...
>>30816957See >>30816891 and >>30816925It's going to be a special night for her without us having to deny her sex in the interim, because it'll mean a hell of a lot more than the usual nightly romps.>mblood traumaI- I hope not, captcha!
Rolled 1>>30816715Forgot roll, sorry
>>30817006Do we have to make a roll on this?I assumed EF was just trying to find a consensus for how we want to go with this.
>>30816981Yeah, failed the captcha and went to scrounge breakfast without noticing. Decided to late post without reading the conversation I'd missed. Thanks for pointing those out though.
>>30817015I hope we don't with a roll like that.
>>30817015Perhaps not, but I remember EF saying that he appreciated having rolls for any decision regardless of whether they were needed. Better to have and not need than the other way around.
Rolled 6>>30817015Honestly, just always leave dice in the email field. If EF needs them, they're there, and if not, no harm done.
>>30816957>but tell her that we expect her to pull out all the stops - to find previously hidden stops to pull out - on our wedding night.Trust me, I don't think we'll need to tell her. She's going to do it anyway as a matter of husbandly pride.If Maka can so much as THINK when Tia is done with her, she will have failed as a new husband.
Rolled 1>>30817051With our mental score i dont see that as a problem.Talking or moving however...
There isn't an easy way of saying what you want to say.You look up to her. She's standing in the middle of the room, looking at you. As usual, it's hard to read her expression. It seems a bit of a mix of fear, worry and expectation. Tension. Nervousness. Happiness. Glee. Frustration. You pat on the bed next to you. "...Come and sit here, please.""Can..." She mumbles, walking up to the bed. "Can I do this?" She asks, lying down on the bed using your lap as a pillow."Of course." You reply. The gentle pressure of her head on your legs feels comfortable and reassuring. "Ahah, I can't see your face." She comments with a chuckle. Sighing, you remove your tabard and lean backwards a bit."...Tia.""Yes?""...I have trouble understanding you sometimes."She looks up at you like she doesn't understand. "...What do you mean? You're the ONLY person who understands me.""Then I've just been lucky guessing, because... I can't follow your thoughts at all, Tia. You do know that the Bond you say we share... it goes one way only, right? From you to me. I... I can't even begin to understand how your feelings for me are. How they work." You tentatively explain."...You don't love me?""I don't love you as much as you love me. It's hard for me. I... I've just met you."She falls silent."You have been living your entire life since you Exalted knowing about me. Searching for me. I... I met you a few days ago. At first, I thought you were being crazy.""I am." She admits. "I realize this. But... I can't do anything about it."You gently stroke her hair. "You can't, or you don't want to?" You idly wonder."Bit of both." She giggles."...But, I hope you understand. It's not that I don't want to love you. It's that you didn't leave time for my love to grow properly.""...Grow?""Yours is already fully-formed, Tia. Burning bright enough to light the entire night sky. Mine... will take time. And effort."A few seconds of silence follow.(cont)
>>30817087>Burning bright enough to light the entire night sky. Mine... will take time. And effort.">and effortWe have just given her something to throw herself completely into, fuelled by the fires of her all-consuming love.This is going to be interesting.On the plus side, we are going to end up with the Greatest Husband To Ever Exist, once all's said and done. I don't think Tia will settle for anything less.
>>30817087This is perhaps the most suspenseful "(cont)" yet.
>>30817129>I don't think Tia will settle for anything less.To be fair, I don't think Maka will either.
>>30817195Nah, Maka in general seems very accepting of Tia. I don't think she'd ever tell Tia she's fallen short of expectations.
"...So, we're lovers." She concludes."For now." You note. "You'll have to...""Anything." She interrupts you. She looks incredibly serious, a fire burning in her eyes. "Just tell me. For you, I'm going to bring you a necklace of stars. Carve a royal palace from the water of the ocean. The severed heads of thirteen deathlords. The Sword of Ice. The Crown of Thunders. Just ask."You shake your head, gently caressing hers. "...I want you to make me fall in love properly, Tia. I don't want amazing profs of courage, or extravagant gifts, or deeds done in my name. I just want to fall in love with you."She falls silent."...You're doing this because you want a family, right? Since you Exalted, everything changed. You're Anathema. You can no longer stay with mortal friends and family like before."Tia nods."And everything in your heart and mind screams that I'm the only one for you. The only one who can give you a normal life and a normal relationship and a normal family." You think about it. "...well, for a given value of normal."She nods again."Then, live every step of your new life with me. Don't skip anything. Start with romance.""I..." She hesitates. "I've never romanced anyone. I don't know where to start from.""Someone with your amazing skill in bed?" You note, surprised. Well, "skill" is the wrong word, but "raw power and complete lack of restraint", while closer to truth, wouldn't fit the conversation."...When I wanted someone, I took him or her. I never wasted time on others like that. They were just meant to... make me feel a bit less lonely for a while.""Did it work?" You ask, but the answer already hangs in the air."...A bit. Not much" She admits. "Sometimes. Some were good enough to keep for a bit. But I always moved on in the end.""Because you weren't looking for sex. You were looking for love."(cont)
>>30817211Granted. At the same time, a Tia who's become complacent wouldn't be the Tia Maka's come to know anymore, IMHO.
>>30817211At least, once Tia knows what Maka wants and has resolved to do it. Tia's been doing stuff Maka doesn't really want, and she's still being really gentle. Once Tia's genuinely trying her best to do what Maka wants, I don't think she'd tell her she's not the greatest.
>>30817220>"For you, I'm going to bring you a necklace of stars. Carve a royal palace from the water of the ocean. The severed heads of thirteen deathlords. The Sword of Ice. The Crown of Thunders. Just ask."What a sweetie. A little overeager, but definitely a sweetheart.
>>30817220>But I always moved on in the end.">"Because you weren't looking for sex. You were looking for love."LOOKING FOR LOVE, IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES~
Rolled 3>>30817220>Don't skip anything.PERFECT. That is literally my favourite part of this explanation so far. That's something she can latch on to hard.
>>30817254She's going to keep a checklist, you know.
>>30817254SECONDED HARD. One of the main reasons I love this quest is EF's writing.
>>30817260Obsessive people generally do.
>>30817275>On a date>Suddenly, attacked by Wyld Hunt"Tia, we should probably leave""BUT I HAVEN'T GIVEN YOU YOUR END-OF-DATE KISS YET! IT SAYS RIGHT HERE THAT I NEED TO DO THAT BEFORE WE LEAVE!""But... there are Immaculate Monks!""KISS FIRST, THEN LEAVE, THEN FIGHT. NOT SKIPPING ANYTHING!"
Rolled 10>>30817236Tia is best husbando
>>30817299>implying we wouldn't just start fighting the Wyld Hunt while making out
>>30817299>"But... there are Immaculate Monks!""AND WE MUST HAVE AN IMMACULATE DATE!"
Rolled 5I have to say, OP, you're really good with this talk about feelings and stuff
>>30817236Even if we tell her she doesn't need to, she'll probably end up doing this anyway. She'll want to end up in the history books as the perfect husband, the sort of archetype that men generations later will aspire to be.Because she's an Exalt, and this is her goal now.
Rolled 2>>30817299oh god, we are the waifu and she is the protagonist...and I wouldn't have it any other way
>>30817299>>30817317I really want this now
>>30817343I know.It's perfect.
The idea seems to just click with her. Her smile brightens up, like someone suddenly figuring out the solution to a riddle. "...yes!" Then, suddenly worried: "Have I found it?""You found where to start from." You reply, punctuating your words with strokes of her long hair. "I'm here now, ready to fall in love with you.""...What do I need to do?" She asks, probably more to herself than to you."I don't know." You chuckle. "Surprise me. You've been particularly good at doing that up to now."Suddenly, she stands back up from your lap pillow, and in a single motion (how does she DO that?) removes her silken white dress with a flourish.Bracing for her inevitable assault, you're instead surprised to see her offer you a silk-gloved hand. As before, she seems to consider those shoulder-length silk gloves and thigh-high stiletto boots "not clothing" for some reason. You wonder if you can consider that a fetish of hers, but then your train of thought carries you to strange places, like asking yourself what counts as a "fetish" for a shapeshifter.Your weird train of thought is interrupted by her voice. "Come with me, then. I'll take you out for the night.Wondering what she means, you gently take her hand, and she pulls you up to the small, round window cut in the hull. She flips it open with the other hand, and then climbs through.Here, as much as it pains you to do so, you have to stop her. "Uh, Tia, I can't follow you there." You ARE wondering what she's planning to do outside naked at night, but that's an even more pressing question, as the window is just large enough to fit your head through, but not your shoulders nor certainly your chest or hips. Thankfully you've grown used to Tia's flexibility, otherwise you would have probably found the anatomically impossible way she squeezed through that space... unsettling.(cont.)
>>30817385....we need a contortionist charm that doesn't step on Lunar Shapeshifting toes...

>>30817500Be careful what you wish for /tg/, you just might get it.
"...What?" She asks you, from outside. You imagine she's holding on to the hull of the ship, maybe with her nails, to stay level with the window. Then, a grin opens on her face as she realizes your problem, and the obvious solution, and she grabs the window frame with both hands, her castemark lighting up..."Waitwaitwait! No! It's MY ship now, remember?""...Oh." The light slowly dies down."...You dive, I'll meet you down!" You tell her, and run upstairs.Along the way, you walk between captain Rubel, Regis, who is apparently being given a tour of the Bloodshark, and the crewman from before, who you can hear continuing his rant from before: "-I mean, it's obvious that the women are going to get WEIRD with no one on land to-""Sorry. G'night." You hastily apologize as you dash between their group."...SEE? WOMEN HAVE GOTTEN ALL WEIRD NOWADAYS! AND IT'S OUR FAULT! Hear my theory, captain! If we just...-"You reach the side of the ship, and dive directly into the sea. The splash of cold water over your body is invigorating, but you're in a shallow bay, and the seabed is really low. You almost hit the bottom, but manage to land on it with your feet, kicking up a small cloud of sand and scaring away a school of fish or two.You hadn't noticed earlier because you had too much stuff on your mind, but the seabed of the bay of a tropical island, especially when moonlit at night, is an amazing sight.Sunken ships and rocks riddled with shining coral and colorful polyps are scattered in the silver-blue landscape, as rays of light filter from above, dancing at the tune of the surface waves. Seaweed forests grow from the bottom up, swaying in the current.(cont.)(sorry if this is long. hope i'm not boring anyone. if you'd like to suggest an action or interrupt do so)

Tia swims towards you from the patch of seaweed she was waiting for you in. You notice again, like you did in the bath, that when underwater she has some large, partially-open cuts along her neck and shoulders. Looking at her better, you notice her fingers are webbed. Somehow, her gloves have adapted to that.About to run out of air, you motion to swim back up, but she gently keeps you underwater. Moving her hands and body in contact with you, she kisses you, and you can feel fresh air being breathed into your lungs.You play for a while like this, swimming and dancing and chasing each other in the fairyland-like scenario of the bay at night. Finally, you both resurface, floating up, cradled by the slow waves. Just being in water like this is immensely comfortable. You briefly wonder if your new elemental allies are helping, or if it's just due to relaxing after a long and stressful day.As crazy as Tia is sometimes, you do feel relaxed when you're with her. After a day of handling social situations, spending time with someone who is just herself, straightforward, ruthlessly honest, and who is as powerful as you (or more, maybe!), who will protect you no matter what, and is definitely, without doubt or fear of betrayal, always on your side no matter what... it's just a good feeling.The waning gibbous moon is shining brightly in the cloudless sky. The two of you just spend some time with your eyes lost in the sea of stars."...I said I'd take you out for a ride, Didn't I?" She says, after long speechless minutes - maybe hours? - where your only communication was through your intertwined fingers. You feel the water moving and her hand leaving your grasp, and, when you turn, a huge dolphin is looking at you."...I guess you did." You reply, climbing atop her as she begins to swim away, picking quickly up a prodigious amount of speed.She did surprise you. And, well, you'd lie if you said that, as weird as it is, it isn't romantic in its own way.(last cont.)

Rolled 3>>30817723>They do tend to keep harems of unreasonably sexy water nymph slaves around, though, specifically to deny them sex so that their beauty is worthless.We have found a cause just enough for him to champion>having them join his crew out of gratitude.as long as they are still apart of our navy...
>>30817760>About to run out of air, you motion to swim back up, but she gently keeps you underwater. Moving her hands and body in contact with you, she kisses you, and you can feel fresh air being breathed into your lungs.Oh, she's good.She's very good.
Rolled 6>>30817725Shit, you kidding me? With a goal like this, the Ocean Father will make him an exigent on the spot. Exigent of the Ocean Father, rescuing tons of hot bitches from the Storm Mothers and bringing them beneath the waves with him? Hell to the fuck yes.
>>30817763>The only way around that is to use a submersible instead of an actual ship. For all their fury, there's not much they can do to a ship that's below the waves instead of above, especially with the water/ocean elementals/spirits backing his play.>He'll be Captain Nemo, but with ALL the cock-gobbling bitches.FUND IT!
>>30817760The gloves and stockings are her Tell, aren't they?
>>30817775>Submarine-captain Exigent, with a crew composed entirely of sexy water nymphs with rapidly-acquired unreasonable technical skillsI legitimately want this to happen now.To say nothing of the shenanigans with hot-bunking.
>>30817787I don't think Lunars are allowed to have Tells that blatantly sexy.If they are, I've been playing in the wrong games.
Rolled 10>>30817797>I legitimately want this to happen now.Same, I seriously hope that in the near future we can give him his own ship to sail on his crusade under our flag
>>30817797It could be a spin-off. Exalted Quest: Exigent.Of course we have to get Tiger Warrior and train him first.
>>30817782>>30817775>>30817769>>30817763>>30817723>>30817725We found our main minion. Boba Fett syndrome induced.Liberating bitches with our blessing and aid and creating a large following for our dancing-fighting-fuck cult so that Tia can brag about how many bitches we have.
>>30817816They're his bitches, though. He's doing all the work of earning them.Doesn't mean we can't demand the occasional use of them as his direct superior.
>>30817816>bitcheswhores. They will be entertaining the Ocean Father and this captain nemo expy too.
>>30817832Or an orgy with him, his bitches, and us and Tia.
Rolled 5>>30817832>>30817843Indeed.Gentlemen, I believe we've found the man who shall champion our navy.
>>30817843He'd probably be fine with that.His only issue with us is that we don't spend enough quality time around dick, after all.
>>30817814Tiger warrior montage!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSS5dEeMX64Tiger Warrior Dance!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bISVUxMYASo
Rolled 1EF, I hope to god your taking notes right now...
>>30817852Possibly. He'll be a bit busy with his personal mission in that submarine, though.He could definitely be our special-forces trump card guy. Nobody knows we have a water-nymph-crewed, elemental-powered submarine.Beat the Lintha and their demon-pulled ships at their own game.
>>30817857Tia can be a man. Tia prefers looking great and that means the form of a girl.
Rolled 7>>30817866Yeah, that Mulan montage is literally Tiger-Warrior Training Technique. Turn a bunch of worthless scrubs into hardened badasses in just a couple months.
>>30817872Yeah, good point. Get the elementals on board with it and you wouldn't need much for the submarine aside from weapons. The elementals can provide propulsion and oxygen.
>>30817852Okay, let's not go overboard here. While certainly funny, he might be completely useless at leadership or logistics or any of the other stuff you need to know to be a good admiral.
Rolled 6>>30817915Ah, but with Training charms, he can be good at all of those things. It's literally just a matter of finding someone with a personality you find favorable and then giving them the skills they need.
>>30817915He doesn't need to be an admiral, just a captain. And Tiger Warrior Training might cover leadership and logistics. Does it?
>>30817915We don't need him to be an admiral. We just need him to be sufficiently obsessive, and then set him loose to go crusade.Our navy is a separate thing that occasionally drafts him when his skills are useful.
Rolled 1>>30817915>a good admiral.never said he had to lead it or be a good admiral, merely champion it, and many champions are great for several things, but shit at manyhe will give our navies a reason to fight, give them hope that someday, they to, may bang sexy water nymphs on the ocean waves and that they may, one day, be as badass as he is, in service to us
>>30817832>>30817843>>30817852>>30817857You mean we are going to let him have all the fun?Plus the training, support, gear, etc.We at least are entitled to our fair share of punching storm mothers and liberating nymphs.We will make him captain of our militant branch of the cult.The bitches can join his branch all the same, we are still the main suggar of the cult.Does not mean we take away from his glory or spoils, just putting them to better use.If he can fix the bitches they can propagate that fixing through our cult. This way he does not have to bother with the administrative side of things. Thus keeping at being captain and liberator.
Rolled 7>>30817928>And Tiger Warrior Training might cover leadership and logistics. Does it?It certainly covers tactics and battlefield leadership.
>>30817956Ok, I'm sick of chasing tips conversation back to its source. Who's this "He" and what are our plans for "Him"?
Hours later, the two of you wash ashore on a tiny, uninhabited atoll in the sea, little more than a large patch of sand on the outline of a surfacing coral reef. The sand is fine, and the water is crystal clear. A small corner of paradise.By the feeling of the wind in your hair and its whistle still ringing in your ears, and the terrifying flow and pressure of the water whenever Tia dived underwater and you with her, you can only imagine that you're quite distant from any place you've known or seen this far. Your worries, the war, the fae, the abyssals can wait at least until dawn. For tonight, this strip of sand is your kingdom. You open your eyes as you feel Tia crawling up to you. "Am I doing this right?" She asks with a light smile.You nod sagely, already acting superb about being the ruler of your newly founded nation, population two. "Quite, quite.""What I want is your love." She repeats, clinging to you. "But that doesn't mean I can't have the sex as well, right?"She's certainly honest with herself.>Not before we're married. But once we're at that point, I promise it will be worth the wait.>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.>You can have all you want, you just need to ask.combined with:>You've been quite rough last time. I understand you have a lot to deal with, but I'd like you to be more gentle>Be as rough as you'd like with me. I'm sturdy, so I can take a lot.>I'm going to get a bit rough with you, if that's alright. I know you're as sturdy as I am.>You're the shapeshifter, feel free to take charge when we're in bed and use any trick you have.>I want you to shapeshift according to my whims when we're in bed. I'll take charge.>We still have a wrestling match to finish! And we'll do it every time~>Other
Rolled 8>>30817956>You mean we are going to let him have all the fun?Oh no, he ain't getting all the fun, and besides, Tia wouldn't let him when theres sexy water nymphs to bang together
Rolled 3>>30817956You know, sexy, fuck happy water nymphs as members of our militant and missionary branches of the cult, set in the western islands, i think it will spread like wild fire.This is genius.We liberate sexy nymphs and get the ocean on our side and then convince them to enter our faith, and use them as missionaries or militants. We are going to get so many converts we wont know what to do with them.
>>30817980This guy. >>30817683Our plans involve this: >>30817723>>30817763>>30817769Also possibly this:>>30817775

I understand you have a lot to deal with, but I'd like you to be more gentlebut we don't mind her being rough with us sometimes, sometimes gentle and slow is lovely and variety only helps
>>30817981Note: as a rule I'm always going to do fade to black on sex scenes because of various reasons, including the fact that /tg/ IS sfw. I don't exclude that I might actually write something explicit sometime (not on /tg/ tho), but in general I think I'd be pretty bad at it. Plus I've always found fade to black and suggestive hinting and descriptions to be a lot sexier than describing the act in detail. The result of this vote is mostly so that I know how to handle Maka and Tia being in bed/going to bed/waking up in the morning from now on (barring a vote to change it)
>>30817981>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.
Rolled 10>>30817980here.Boba Fett Syndrome :>>30816555>As you vanish below deck, you hear a crewman in the background complaining to the captain: "See? THIS is what happens when we leave our women on land alone with each other for too long! Man, I hate Storm Mothers.">>30817533>Along the way, you walk between captain Rubel, Regis, who is apparently being given a tour of the Bloodshark, and the crewman from before, who you can hear continuing his rant from before: "-I mean, it's obvious that the women are going to get WEIRD with no one on land to-">"Sorry. G'night." You hastily apologize as you dash between their group.>"...SEE? WOMEN HAVE GOTTEN ALL WEIRD NOWADAYS! AND IT'S OUR FAULT! Hear my theory, captain! If we just...-"

Rolled 10>>30818001And probably this: >>30817956If we want to milk it for all its Zenith and Eclipse worth.
>>30817981Not until marriage. Hahahahahahahaha...actually I kinda want to try this, just to see what she'd be like when the dam finally breaks, but nah.>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.>I liked how rough you were last time, but at the same time it's not always what I find most appropriate. Would you mind a more gentle session tonight?Might as well custom it.
>>30817981>>30817981>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.Or wife. Whichever works really>>I want you to shapeshift according to my whims when we're in bed. I'll take charge.
>>30817981>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.Basically this.The sex will keep being a thing - we've never stopped being lovers - but our wedding night and anything specifically intended as marital sex had better damn well be special.>Other>All of the aboveVariety is the spice of life, after all. Gentle sex, rough sex, mutual roughness, she takes charge, we take charge, we wrestle for dominance... change it up. Don't want our sex life to get stale.
Rolled 10>>30817981>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.>You've been quite rough last time. I understand you have a lot to deal with, but I'd like you to be more gentle>Be as rough as you'd like with me. I'm sturdy, so I can take a lot.Both of these. Rough is fun as FUCK, but gentle is nice too.>You're the shapeshifter, feel free to take charge when we're in bed and use any trick you have.She probably has plenty of surprises we don't know about.>We still have a wrestling match to finish! And we'll do it every time~If she wants to be rough, she has to contend with the fact that we're a powerbottom.
Rolled 8>>30818005>including the fact that /tg/ IS sfw. I don't exclude that I might actually write something explicit sometime (not on /tg/ tho)Text is actually fine, no matter the content, janny's and mods have said any and all text is sfw regardless of its actual matter, so don't think that banned test smut is a thing, we have weekend smut threads devoted to writing said smut. Just a thing to know and considerAlso, I'm totally fine with you keeping it to FtB's if your not comfortable or happy writing smut.A note to any anons who might/would write smut in the future, keep it in a pastebin and post the link after the thread is finished.

>>30818057sounds good. She just needs to ask~
Rolled 6>>30818005What >>30818040 & >>30818048 said, classifications on 'safeness' only apply to pictures, text is fair game, but if you don't want to go that far, then by all means stick with the FtB's and suggestive writing, its been damn good so far.
>>30818067We should absolutely be gentle tonight. After a date that romantic, it wouldn't fit to have us nearly break each other.Gentle, loving, romantic sex with lots of snuggling and kisses.
>>30817981>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.the next ones look like a bunch of either/ors, so>Be as rough as you'd like with me.

Rolled 8>>30817981>We still have a wrestling match to finish!Maybe not every time, though
Rolled 9So, it sounds like consensus is "Let's fuck and get even freakier once we're married" combined with "Sometimes I like it gentle, sometimes I like to bring down an entire building. Let's keep things spicy, shapeshifting whenever either of us have new ideas."That about right?
Rolled 7>>30817896And couple it with music and dance and haka because we dancing and this is island culture.>competent alreutpCapcha may be on to something
Rolled 3>>30818093Anon, don't forget the hand holding
>>30818102Sounds about right, although the marital sex doesn't need to be freakier. It needs to be meaningful, as opposed to just having fun with each other.If that makes sense.
>>30818102Seems like a hefty preference for taking charge most of the time though.
Rolled 2>>30818102sounds about rightour sex life is going to be awesome
>>30818102absolutelyand tonight is a gentle night
>>30818109That comes before the sex. That's the foreplay.
>>30818093Gotta agree, lots of time for freaky no-holds-barred fuckfests, the mood isn't really right for rough stuff tonight though.
>>30818124best husband gives best sex
>>30817981>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull>I want you to shapeshift according to my whims when we're in bed. I'll take charge.
Rolled 4>>30818126>>30818137indeed, we shall teach her to make love properly tonight
>>30818093This for tonight and as the mood takes us in the future. Most of the time I think Maka will want to play rough though.
>All these people wanting to take chargeWhat happened to Maka, Solar Power-Bottom?Or is that what you mean by "take charge"?
>>30817981>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.>I want you to shapeshift according to my whims when we're in bed. I'll take charge.
>>30818102basicallytonight though, we need to be in charge-we're going to show Tia what gentle lovemaking feels like
>>30818163>What happened to Maka, Solar Power-Bottom?It never existed?
Rolled 1>>30818178It existed in his imagination, probably
Rolled 5>>30818163>Or is that what you mean by "take charge"?That's definitely what I mean by 'take charge.' You can be in charge and still be on the bottom. Hell, you can be a dom and still be a bottom.
>>30818178It seemed to be the consensus a few threads ago.
>>30818189Not really. There's been a hefty bunch of people who want to strait up dom. That was what I was voting for.
>>30818102>>30818117I understand the desire everyone has for Maka to be the one in charge rather than letting Tia go full on husbando. I was concerned about it, as well, but I don't really see it as that big a concern anymore. She follows our lead in almost every matter, always seeks our approval, and is bound by what is presumably a five-dot Solar bond to be faithful to us.We'll never be weak to her or in comparison to her. In fact, I'd say letting her be as strong as she can only makes us look better. Or maybe I just like Tia.
>>30818206Being straight-up dom all the time is boring, and doesn't really fit her character thus far.Maka seems to like to switch it up.
>>30818206Me to.>>30818208Nobody wants to enslave her like some bad porn movie
Rolled 3>>30818189>>30818178>>30818178>>30818163It gets changed as we want it. We are Zenith. We are the highest of the high.And Lunars are flexible enough to be on any spot their Solar wants to. It's kind of their stick.Any route but the direct route.
Rolled 9>>30818206I want to be a dominant-leaning switch who is also a power-bottom.
>>30818221I'm sure there's some anon that wants to do that. Cheesy music and all.
>>30818189The consensus was to have fun, not stick to a prescribed role during playtime.
Rolled 2>>30818223>>30818221>>30818218>>30818208>>30818206>>30818189So basically we change it up as we fucking want it because we are not set in stone.Why do we need to argue about this?Its not like its in any way shape or form relevant at all to the main things we have going on.
>>30818223Fair enough, I'm just surprised is all.
>>30818206that was what I was going for. We'll probably be somewhere in the middle
Rolled 7>>30818102This.Add in that tonight we're going to take it slow and gentle and really show her how to make love, and its perfect.
>>30818247Pretty sure the consensus was "there is no consensus"
Rolled 4>>30817896>>30817866Disney song montages are some of the best for charms.Try this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEryAoLfnAA
>Everyone having fun with waifu/husbando discussion>Everyone loves Tia>Fun idea for new NPC>Best set of posts yet come out>Everybody having a great time>Suddenly people start tearing each other apart over what position for the main character to take during sexThe fuck happened to this thread?
Rolled 10>>30818295That montage is better for the results of a Cecelyne Infernal wish session.
Rolled 4>>30818287 I think a consensus is forming...look here:>>30818254>>30818223>>30818102
>>30818300>The fuck happened to this thread?/tg/ being Autistic as usual?
Rolled 10>>30818300ehh, that last point is more overblown than anything really, just a confused anon that thought their headcanon was actual canonnothing to get ruffled about
Rolled 2>>30818300Lack of a fight for too long. We start to fight over the most pointless shit once we get down to it.
Rolled 10>>30818300I'm just glad we're already in autosage, so this really doesn't matter too much
EVERYONE SHUT THE FUCK UP.GOOD, NOW QUICKWHATS OUR NEW CHAMPIONS NAME?AND WHAT SHOULD OUR CULT WITH WATER NYMPHS BE CALLED?
>>30818246Eh, while I wouldn't mind enslaving someone like a bad porn movie particularly we'd need a much better target. Queeny would work I suppose, though we won't pick her. Maybe the usurper of Gem?
>>30817981>I want you to shapeshift according to my whims when we're in bed. I'll take charge.>Of course not. But once I recognize you as my husband, we'll pull all stops, or find new ones to pull.
>>30818361HIS NAME SHALL BEROWBOATGIRLYMAN
>>30818321That doesn't really seem to the the consensus tho'
Rolled 6>>30818390Play on Nemo. The Harbinger of Men to lonely nymphs and ladies everywhere.Bad jokes and tropes about sailors and swooning ladies over them actually happen around him once we get through with him.
Rolled 2>>30818409...what? Yes it does. Most people want constant variety and switching it up or are willing to compromise on it.
Rolled 2>>30818428pretty much. Also it ends up the majority of the fighting leaving only one or two malcontents still sitting on either side.
>>30818428I'm reading it as variety with a heavy dominant/power bottom slant.
>>30818469That was my view as well.
Rolled 1http://youtu.be/fcTC7RkmHacAladdin - best Night Caste. Athletics, Larceny, Dodge, Stealth, Awareness - he's got it all going for him.
>>30818390I actually like Meno or Mino or something like that.
>>30818469i see it as more a switch thing. why limit ourselves?
>>30818469At this point I think we should just vote every time and let EF go grab a snack and freshen up while we figure out what we're doing.
Rolled 9>>30818469Eh. I see a few people very vocal about it, but the majority just seem to want a little of everything.
>>30818595Because what looks like an outright majority supports controlling the action in some form or another. Ergo, they get what they want most of the time, but we have occasional variety to keep things interesting.
"Of course not." You reply, whispering in your ear as your hands slide on her lithe, perfect body. "But I promise you, once we're married, I'm not going to hold back any more.""Wait." She lifts her head. "You were holding back?""Well, no." You admit your little lie. "I just mean we're going to pull all stops.""...I never had any stops." She reminds you. Not that you need it."Think of it this way." You reply. "If we go all-out NOW, then once we marry we'll be forced to find new ways to go even beyond that."She seems to be totally on board with it. "So... let me push the bar as high as possible now.""Oh, no, no. *I* am going to push it higher than you." You challenge her."...You're on."Alas, your kingdom lasted one night only before sinking under the waves.But it was a fairly memorable night, so it's okay.Hours later. A bit after dawn. Freeport Island. Deck of the Bloodshark."...So, you had me sleep on the floor to leave you "a room" for your "privacy"... and then you just spend your night at sea?" Captain Rubel rants.It's not often that a mortal gets to complain this way to two Exalted, but you have to recognize that he's right. "Look, I said we're sorry...""That's not the point! You could have just told me!" He sighs. "Oh, hey, Rubel, I changed my mind, I'm going to bang my magical girlfriend out at sea all night, you can have your room back and sleep on your bed!""But you saw Maka leaving!" Tia points out."But not you! And I thought she might have returned a moment later and maybe I didn't see her. You people are weird like this. I know it's not a big deal sleeping on the floor for a night, but come on people, you could have just SAID."He takes a second, long, deep, drawn-out breath, and calms down."Better?" You ask him.He nods. "Yeah." Then he straightens a bit, his back clearly aching after a night spent sleeping on wooden boards. "What now?"
>>30818627That's not my read of the situation.
Rolled 10>>30818645It's definitely my read. Perhaps you might be biased, friend?
>Try and meet with Iohannes Quint, the remaining pirate captain these parts.>Work on a plan to take over this port village.>Try and find Mikahil. He's probably still here somewhere, probably doing shady stuff.>Consider interacting again with local spirits, different ones this time.>Can you introduce me to that guy in your crew...?>Leave the island and head for (Tianna/Azure Lake/Somewhere else?)

Rolled 4>>30818644Lets grab the last captain and then link up at Azure lake. If we have more time we have a choice between taking over the town, trying to get a third supernatural ally or getting there faster and trying to integrate our armies a bit better.
>>30818669>Try and meet with Iohannes Quint, the remaining pirate captain these parts.>Consider interacting again with local spirits, different ones this time.>Can you introduce me to that guy in your crew...?
>>30818667Perhaps, you might we as well. Either way if some people want a little bit over everything and a bunch of other people want to do one thing the compromise "isn't do a little bid of everything." Its "Mostly do that one thing, but change it up occasionally."
>>30818644I love Captain Rubel.

>>30818695>Organize Iron for our crews, so they can actually hurt the faehahahahaha. The fae would bumfuck some pirates hard enough that we would hear it past the 4th wall Iron or not.
>>30818669>Try and meet with Iohannes Quint, the remaining pirate captain these parts.>Can you introduce me to that guy in your crew...?WE NEED HIM
>>30818669>Can you introduce me to that guy in your crew...?Gotta meet that guy.
>>30818669>Try and find Mikahil. He's probably still here somewhere, probably doing shady stuff.>Try and meet with Iohannes Quint, the remaining pirate captain these parts.>Can you introduce me to that guy in your crew...?I'm getting really curious about what Mikahil's been up to. Probably drinking and catching up on sleep, now that I think about it.
Rolled 6>>30818669>Try and meet with Iohannes Quint, the remaining pirate captain these parts.>Try and find Mikahil. He's probably still here somewhere, probably doing shady stuff.Once we have the people we really should get iron as >>30818695 points out.>>30818697Lets finish this right before going out. At sea we should be a wee bit faster than on land.
Rolled 7>>30818669>Leave the island and head for TiannaI think we have enough people for now, time to make sure everything else is ready
Rolled 1>>30818687>>30818706>>30818737>>30818746We no longer have time for Quint. We have less than 24 hours to be equipped and AT Azure Lake. We CANNOT AFFORD to be late, and it took at least that long to get here moving a Tia's super-speed.
Rolled 9>>30818734Fae mooks wont, and the Exalted and supernaturals should keep the Fae nobles too occupied to fuck up the mortals.Lots of iron arrows.
>>30818712Right. If a bunch of people want 100% and the other people want 50% you compromise somewhere in the 70-80 range, not at 50%Yes, its a crude analogy, but it works.
>>30818759>We have less than 24 hours to be equipped and AT Azure Lake.Wait what, really?
Rolled 1>>30818669>Leave the island and head for Tianna>>30818734I think you underestimate how weak they are to Iron
Rolled 3>>30818759We did that less than 24 hours. remember we crossed the island after talking and dancing with Dancing Smoke.And then we flew around aimlessly searching for ships.We can spare one hour at most finding where the last major ship is docked and boarding it to get a one on one with the captain.Then we can go. In the preparation we can mention get iron weapons and arrows.
Rolled 5>>30818669>Leave the island and head for (Tianna/Azure Lake/Somewhere else?)Azure Lake. Time to kick some shit in.
>>30818669>Try and meet with Iohannes Quint, the remaining pirate captain these parts.Priorities people! We planned yesterday to get the last captain and take over the city before leaving. There is no need to be in a hurry.>Work on a plan to take over this port village.>Try and find Mikahil. He's probably still here somewhere, probably doing shady stuff.>Consider interacting again with local spirits, different ones this time.>Can you introduce me to that guy in your crew...?I want all of this, but let's go at it one at a time.
Rolled 3>>30818787Yes!>>30818801That conversation with Dancing Smoke took, what, an hour? And that was half-way across the island just to get there, and we barely made it to the beach on the other side by nightfall.WE NEED TO GO BACK OR WE WILL BE LATE.And if we're late, our alliance is FUCKED.
Rolled 4We also should not leave Mikhail on the island.We should delegate Tia or somone to find him and tell him we are leaving so he should get on board.
Rolled 10>>30818814>Priorities people! We planned yesterday to get the last captain and take over the city before leaving. There is no need to be in a hurry.We have less than 24 hours to get to Azure Lake. There WAS no need to hurry, but then we spent all evening dealing with a thief and all night fucking. That was our remaining time.
>>30818669Exaltedfag, how much time to do we have left?
>>30818669>>Leave the island and head for (Azure Lake)Gotta get goind
>>30818838Fine, but at least let's get Mikahil and some iron before we leave. Actually, we just might be able to fit in getting to the last captain while our mooks do the rest. Also, Rubel can introduce us to that guy on the way back.
Rolled 6>>30818895>get MikahilAgreed.>and some ironWe should probably just get that in Tianna. They're sure to have better smiths, and it shouldn't be too much of a trouble to get some iron swords while picking up our gauntlets and boots. That's assuming they're not using iron already - iron is cheaper (and shittier) than good bronze, and I wouldn't be surprised if they have to deal with fae ships sometimes.
Rolled 6>>30818895Indeed.Get the people to stock up on iron, meet up with the last captain, send word to Mikhail we are leaving and all of this can be done in a hour or so. We meet up with the guy on the trip to Azure lake. And on the trip we can try and get a few more gods or so , once we are near Azure.
Rolled 4>>30818734fae extras aren't that good. Also:"Any weapon made of pure iron (as opposed to steel) inflicts aggravateddamage on a raksha and also ignores any natural soak she gainsfrom Stamina and Charms."
How do we know if iron hurts Fae?Has Maka ever ran into a Raksha before?
Rolled 9>>30818969Yeah, it's fucking great. In this game, that would probably cause every attack to be 2 damage by default against fae while using iron weapons, not even counting the once-per-scene damage bonus.>>30818986It's EXTREMELY common knowledge in Creation, and Maka has Twilight 2. It's literally incomprehensible to not know about it.
Rolled 2>>30818986I'm pretty sure it's common knowledge in creation
Rolled 1>>30818969it also disspells some charms, I think
Rolled 9>>30818986Kind of common knowledge that one.I mean pretty much any campaign against the Raksha was done whit iron weapons. And the whole iron mythology. We have enough lore that we know as much as a well informed person in our position. This is something we should know.
Rolled 4>>30818969That's why I always have my exalts try to carry three versions of their primary weapon. An artifact, an exceptional mundane version, and an iron one. For example, an orichalcum daiklave, a Chiaroscuro glass sword of exceptional craftsmanship, and a simple-but-solidly-made iron one.The artifact gets stored Elsewhere, the iron one left on the horse or attached to the pack or what have you, and the exceptional mundane one worn on the hip.
>>30818840>Exaltedfag, how much time to do we have left?Depends on how you move.If you move alone with Tia as a vehicle, you can fly one hex in 5 minutes. So, a lot of time.Ships are about one hex in 15 minutes. Also note that the ships can't really go up the river and reach Azure Lake because they'd have to go through the wyld swamp. also because it's too shallow anyway. (Mikahil might have charms that make them go faster.)Land movement without riding a lunar? You're looking at 3 hex in 2 hours.Plan accordingly.
Rolled 4>>30819023That is a good policy. Or Witcher like outfit, with the orichalcum weapon elsewhere you can pose as a Raksha hunter.
Rolled 4I say we use our ship to go to Tianna, send our men ahead so we can spend some time in the city and then catch up with Tia as a horse
Rolled 4>>30819051And which of those little islands are we on? It looks like the fastest land route for our pirates to get to Azure Lake is 8 hexes, from the south. That's almost six hours. From the north, it's 11, for nearly eight. And after a march like that, they'll need a rest of they're going to be in any fighting shape....I really think we do need to be leaving in very short order.
>>30819087So we find Mikhael very very quickly. We can come back to meet Iohannes Quint afterwards.
Rolled 2>>30819058Yup. In this case, iron, rather than silver, is your 'magic' sword. And honestly, most of the monsters in the Witcher were product of some wyld zone/shadowlands.Unless I'm mistaken, though, there's no real bane for ghosts/demons, is there? Aside from Holy effects, that is.
Rolled 4We should really grab Mikhael and get moving
Rolled 4>>30819051Well we could have Mikhail or someone else in charge of the three pirate ships enacting a blockade of the swamp supported by the water elemental court.We only go with Tia and meet up with our supernatural allies at azure lake and then tell our lunar friends our force disposition, weather they want or can get the pirate ships in on the action.If so we fly over with tia to the ships and the elemental water court while the lunars hit from the east with dancing smoke and we force a landing with our elemental and pirate in support of ourselves and tia.Any campaign wont start today but tomorrow since the meet up is late at night.
>>30819087the left-most one with six woodland hexes. the bay the village is built around is the one on the bottom left.
>>30819051alright, so we need to talk to Quint and the cool mortal. Then get all the iron and send both ships ahead and talk to a couple more spirits. After that we'll catch up and meet them at Azure lake tonight
Rolled 6>>30819136>Then get all the ironhow? We don't have much money and I don't think a pirate village has many iron weapons lying around. It's why we want to go to Tianna
Rolled 9>>30819100Nope. We better get him fast now before he makes a exit.Also with three ships we can have them try and make a piquet line of the swamp gulf with the elemental and then have enough men to support ourselves if we do the pincer move.
Rolled 6>>30819162we already told the elementals to show up at the lake, we can't change everything now
>>30818669Is it worth worrying ourselves over the pirates right now? They can't meet at Azure Lake, and would they even be useful against the Fae?Would they be useful as a blockade off the coast? Could we just give them some orders and then meet back up after helping the Three Rivers?
Rolled 8>>30819133That means a minimum of 12 hexes to sail, which is another three hours. 36 hexes - 9 hours of sailing - if we want to take the route that leaves the sailors with a shorter overland march.Yeah, we need to get going very shortly.
Rolled 6>>30819051>>30819133If that is so the ships can get to the wyld swamp bay in less than five hours,And we can fly to azure lake in two hours, or more if we go from the bay and try to avoid the swamp.We can spare the time to get Quint and Mikhail and have them armed up with iron weapons from the town. We can even Fly to Tianna and then back. and make that all in six hours.If evening is at 2000 or 2100 and it is now say 09000 we have about six hours we can burn, around two or so in town here, two in Tianna, and two on the road or at Azure.
Rolled 10>>30819191Creation doesn't have firearms/cannons by default. The can't shell somewhere from off the shore, and can do fuckall to catch a ship that's faster than them.Triremes and junks are high tech here. Most ships are just rowed and lack sails.
Rolled 9We're on page 9.Second thread tonight?
Rolled 4>>30819224If we want them at Azure lake. Why would we want that?They are best employed as naval fighters and coastal raiders.Better we let them in the bay and with the lunar armies we try and push the fae to the shore where the pirates will then make a landing or bombard the fuckers from the ships with iron, while the water elemental protect them from bullshit magic.>>30819182We can send them to the bay as they arrive and meet and greet with the lunars
>>30819266Someone get this archived quick then.
Rolled 2>>30819276>If we want them at Azure lake. Why would we want that?Why wouldn't we? Creation is pre-artillery and pre-sail. They can't do shit from the sea aside from board other vessels, which the Fae may very well not even have. They're not useful for anything other than actually fighting, in this particular engagement.
Rolled 6>>30819254They have bow and arrows, for the small ships and probably scorpio or similar stuff. And the larger military ships probably have ballista and catapults.
Rolled 10>>30819320>And the larger military ships probably have ballista and catapults.What larger military ships? These are shitty little pirate ships that ram and board other ships to steal their cargo. At best, you're going to find a miniature ballista that fires harpoons to help pull other ships in.And since the hexes are large enough that they take an hour and a half to cross, and the Fae live in the middle of the swamp, they aren't going to do shit unless the fae decide to go hang out on the beach for some fucking reason.
Rolled 6>>30819303I was thinking landing on the beach and functioning as a element in a hammer and anvil move, with the elementals providing anti shaping defence while they pepper fae with iron or form a shield wall and poke with iron spears.They are pirates after all, so coastal raiding should be in their repertoire.I am trying to keep to our strengths and getting the elementals and the pirates inland makes them weaker.
Rolled 8>>30819369The problem with that is that the swamp is five hexes - 7.5 hours by foot - across at its very narrowest point. We have exactly zero way of coordinating something like that.
Rolled 6>>30819363I was talking for the larger military ships about Tiannas stuff and such. Pirates would not use catapults as it would be rather self defeating.>>30819363Well we could have the army march on the borders of the swamp to lure the fae army and then go towards the beach.When they finaly get us we are waiting them in a L type hold with the lunars up and the pirates and elemental at the shore.The lunars would then swing around and try and push the fae to the shore into the elementals and pirates.If we go to the fae we are going to have to fight them on prepared ground.I would rather eat them piece by piece, army first city and holdings later.
Rolled 3We agreed, with Talon, to bring everyone we can to Azure Lake to start our attack on the fae. Presumably, this includes a strategy meeting where we can work out a plan of attack. There's nothing saying we have to attack immediately.I think we should jsut do what we agreed on, show up, and discuss how we're going to do this with our allies, before we try to implement some "brilliant" strategy
Rolled 10>>30819386 We could really use that messenger charm...Or sorcerers to function as phones.We can coordinate with Tia or another lunar flying... but unless they transform into something small and inconspicuous they are going to give up the ploy...
Rolled 5>>30819434>I was talking for the larger military ships about Tiannas stuff and suchDid you read this quest at all? Tianna DOESN'T have ships, because the pirates keep sinking them
Rolled 2>>30819434>I was talking for the larger military ships about Tiannas stuff and such....Tianna isn't sending anyone to this battle, dude. It's just us, our personal allies, and the Three Rivers tribes. And I really don't think you realize how fuckhuge this swamp is, or how few dudes we actually have.
Rolled 5GUYS JUST GO TO THE STRATEGY MEETING AND DISCUSS STRATEGY THERE
Rolled 4>>30819462Two biermes it has. They could mount a small catapult or a boarding bridge.>>30819464I know. I was talking about naval shit in general.
Rolled 6>>30819485>I know. I was talking about naval shit in general.None of us are. We're talking about the upcoming battle. You know, actual relevant shit?
>>30819436This all depends how well we can arm them. We will have to make a trip to Tianna if the village does not have much iron we will just be wasting their lives by let them go into battle unprepared.Also our schedule will depend on Mikahil who might have sail charms. Let's go meet with him and last captain and then decide.
Rolled 6>>30819519I don't think the last captain is even in this port. We'd have to find him
Just information:1) Maka knows how to fight Fae with iron. She might not know intricate details, spells or wards, but she knows that they are weak to pure, low-grade iron without the carbon inclusions you'd add to make steel.2) There's probably a lot of iron in Freeport (pots, kettles, chains, anchors, etc), it's just a matter of re-purposing it to weaponry.3) The ships usually fight with arrows, fire arrows, and some light non-gunpowder artillery (ballistas, catapults, etc).4) A ship has a crew of about 30 people.Also, closing the thread here. Next thread? I'll try and make one tomorrow.I'm also considering making a non-gameplay thread to discuss your situation, the setting for people who don't know the game, bringing up to par people who didn't follow the threads / don't feel like browsing the archive, ideas, questions, and deciding how to spend XP. good idea, or waste of a thread?As usual, archive if you liked.2 XP (base)1 XP (recruited Regis)1 XP bonus (cleared your relationship status with Tia)
Rolled 5>>30819476Lets get Quin and Mikahil before that and then we make haste to Azure lake.
>>30819567Also: the meeting at Azure Lake is a pre-attack strategy meeting, but it doesn't mean you'll attack right away, or need to have all your forces there. It just means that you're done recruiting and building up and all that comes afterwards is the preparation for the attack, but it doesn't mean "ok everyone is here ATTACK NOW".In general, you can assume you'll be able to talk about it at the meeting, and that they expect you to bring important people involved in the decision-making process. not the entire crew, but probably the captains.
Rolled 1>>30819567Can we purchase Hardship Surviving Spirit now? There seems to be a consensus on that.
Rolled 4>>30819611>but probably the captains.how many people can Tia carry while flying?
>>308195672 XP (base)1 XP (recruited Regis)1 XP bonus (cleared your relationship status with Tia)Wow, you are being generous. Let's get Hardship Surviving Spirit or Dawn 3. Which one would be more useful in this situation?
Rolled 6>>30819636Hardship Surviving Spirit would let us survive any poison or other environmental hazards of the swamp. Depending on how long the next thread goes, we might be able to also pick up Dawn 3 before the battle - after all, we only need two more experience in order to afford both.
Rolled 1>>30819636we're probably going to use Dawn a lot, it's not just punching people, which we're going to do a lot, but also commanding troops and coming up with strategies.
>>30819619Yeah, I remember from last thread. I'd say it works. I'll add it later.>>30819625Enough.
>>30819625This is a good plan. We can get the last captain, take over the town and even get some more spirit allies if we play this right.After we get the last captain we send the fleet to Tianna along with Mikahil to get armed and once we are done we fly to the meeting with Tia and the captains using several trips if necessary.We should not be on the ships in the first place because of Storm Mothers.
Rolled 8>>30819682>Yeah, I remember from last thread. I'd say it works. I'll add it later.Cheers.
Rolled 1>>30819682>Enough.so you're saying we could airdrop our entire army on top of the fae?
>>30819714>We should not be on the ships in the first place because of Storm Mothers.I don't think they're dense enough to fuck with Maka and Tia while there are less-terrifying pretty ladies to drown.
Rolled 10>>30819732>I don't think they're dense enough to fuck with Maka and Tia while there are less-terrifying pretty ladies to drown....Dense enough? The Storm Mothers can rip us a new asshole. We're a fresh exalt - we can bully low-grade and even some medium-tier spirits, but even Dancing Smoke could probably kick our ass if she really tried. The Storm Mothers would FUCK US UP.
>>30819773Still not a smart idea to pick a fight with Exalts when there's mortals you could be drowning.
Rolled 10>>30819905They don't have some kind of drowning bitches quota, dude. They just drown bitches when they see them and get jealous. Considering how fucking smokingly hot Maka is, she would be a top priority on their jealous-bitch-outrage.
Rolled 6>>30819949With HSS we just swim to the sea bottom and they are shit out of luck because ocean father and elementals do not like them.>>30819717>>30819682Probably not the entire army but that means we can grab the captains and fly them over to azure lake. Meaning we can do some stuff in town like meet the third captain, or even take over the town if it is done before noon, and then fly over to Tianna and then turn back to Azure lake or just Azure lake..
Rolled 5>>30820036>With HSS we just swim to the sea bottom and they are shit out of luck because ocean father and elementals do not like them.Which does nothing to save the ship we were on. That's our actual concern.
