After a few hours of furious negotiations (even among yourselves) in the ship's dark cargo hold, you, Tia, Yaraon and Zaan manage to narrow down the oath that you'll be submitting Silk to. Thinking back to it, she's been very smart with her persuasive words, and got you and your companions to agree or concede much more than you would normally have.On the other hand, you realize that she herself has not gone too far with her demands, even where she could have. You have the feeling that she really wants to find a deal that you'll find acceptable too.The new draft of the oath is:- Silk will be the absolute ruler of the Black Marsh Wyld as our vassal. She reserves the right to reshape it in any way she wants as long as this doesn't affect Creation. Its borders cannot be expanded but they may be reduced slowly to nothing over the course of 200 years.- Official visits inside the Wyld, authorized by you (having the visitors carry a specific symbol or token you'll agree on) are not to be harmed and to be treated with the utmost respect. Anyone else must be warned to leave, they become fair game if they do not comply, but she is forbidden to mislead or trick them into wandering in the Wyld.-Likewise, her official visits to Creation are to be treated with the utmost respect (by you and your people, at least).-She is forbidden from hunting and devouring the souls of humans, or anyone else with emotions including but not limited to gods, and from hurting others in any way, even in self-defense, but she is allowed to sustain herself by feeding off ambient emotions. She is allowed to have a harem of humans to that end, but not as slaves. They have to be volunteers and to be treated humanely according to your standards.-You will do your best to protect and defend her from outside enemies, including other Fair Folk seeking to invade her realm.(cont.)
-She will provide you with materials crafted from Gossamer at your request, up to one half of her owned reserves, crafted by her to fit your needs.-She has to accept and submit to any physical binding you or Tia inflict on her.-She has to assist you in war when called.-This deal applies to both yourselves and your respective followers.-This deal lasts until you can meet with Mikahil, at which points it can be confirmed or renegotiated, and voids the previous oath you had with her.And Silk's objections, upon taking a good look at them on paper, are: "Mhh... well, two hundred years is a really short time. I was hoping to stay a bit longer. I AM going to be your vassal after all, am I not?"You blink. "A short time? Really?""Well, it is, isn't it?" She doesn't sound like she's joking. "How about... just that we keep the post-war borders fixed for a hundred years, and then re-negotiate every hundred years?"You rub your temples. Yaraon really doesn't look like he approves, but then again, he is going to be the god ruling over whatever land you take off her, so that's normal. "I'll think about it. What else?""I can't possibly be disarmed AND help you in war now, can you?" She has a point. "If you want that from me, you'll have to let me make a new sword and a new army. Of my own this time, not borrowed from Dorian, of course. I never shared his taste for human children anyway."You try not to think too hard about it."Last thing: Half of my gossamer is way too much. How about a third? After all... for you it's a nice extra commodity, but I need that stuff to actually BUILD and RULE my realm."(cont.)
>>31040802>Anyone else must be warned to leave, they become fair game if they do not complyI am children might have an issue here. Also someone who is injured might not be ABLE to comply.
>>31040945sounds fine to me, honestly a bit of goodwill here would be worth more than a bit of Gossamer By the way, we should ask Smoke how things between her and Yaraon went
>>31041036If they are too injured to leave, how did they get into the wyld in the first place
>>31040945>"I can't possibly be disarmed AND help you in war now, can you?" She has a point. "If you want that from me, you'll have to let me make a new sword and a new army. Of my own this time, not borrowed from Dorian, of course. I never shared his taste for human children anyway."As long as she doesn't use her new army to attack us or our allies obviously
>>31041091Depends on what she makes the army out of I suppose.
>>31041036The wylds are pretty far from most towns I doubt there would be any kids there that we should worry about
>>31040945third is fine. half is just being greedy.200 is too fast, but every 100 years is too slow... debate the amount of years.>>310410811. They could have gotten injured in the wyld (it is a dangerous place)2. Untreated injuries worsen over time, they could have been lightly injured when they entered, by the time she contacts them they are suffering from bloodloss and infection
>>31041109How does she make armies?
>>31040945>GossamerCould an exalted newbie get a quick explain on this, preferably from what Maka would know of it?
>>31040945>"Well, it is, isn't it?" She doesn't sound like she's joking. "How about... just that we keep the post-war borders fixed for a hundred years, and then re-negotiate every hundred years?"This might be a problem depending on when we want to make our own kingdom and retake Gem
>>31041118>Demanding she be disarmed>Demanding she aid in waryea, this is a contradiction, we need to drop one or the other>but every 100 years is too slowfucked up the phrasingrenegotiating every 100 years is too... renegotiable.Also, another thing we can give her is to basically add more lands ELSEWHERE. that is, as we kill or conquer more fae, she can lay claim to their lands too under similar terms, she is basically benefitting from our victories over the wyld by managing the decline of the marsh.
>>31041130No idea.>>31041138Made from emotions, useful as mostly low tier magic items. Jade and other magical materials are better, but we don't have access to those.
>>31041138Raw material Fae forge stuff out of.
>>31041138magical wyldstuff that can be turned into almost anything, often making better versions than what would be possible with mundane materials
We should clear what happens if Maka dies, wouldn't want her to overrun Tianna the moment we get a botch in combat or something
>>31041222That's true. We need to have a line of succession as far as prime negotiators is concerned.
>>31041241Ideally if we aren't available her oath would fall to the current ruler of Tianna.
You roll your eyes, getting quickly tired of all this pointless arguing. Honestly, Silk seems very annoyed as well. Desperately struggling to... ...Rather than power, you fell like her greatest need is to have a place where to belong. She seems to have grown tired of other Raksha, so she has resolved to live in a small island of Wyld cordoned off by Creation, and spend some time on her own. Is she the Fair Folk equivalent of the ascetic living alone on a mountain? As weird as that concept sounds in your mind, it's the only one that makes sense. Her attempts at negotiating the oath are mostly caused by fear that you'll deny her a place where to live as herself and be herself. ...You can arrange that.[TALKING TO THE HEART][MAJESTIC RADIANT PRESENCE]Social + Zenith = 10 10 8 10 4 1 10 7 2 2 = 10 successes"You're getting bored with all this talk, Silk?" You ask her, as Essence surges around you."Eh, a bit. I just with we could agree on-" She suddenly stops, looking at you, eyes fixed on your forehead."I'm going to make you a different offer now. Completely different. You're free to take it, or to reject it and then we can just finish working on this oath.""...It's not an oath?" She wonders, surprised. Backing up, slowly scooting on her shapeless base along the rough wooden floor of the cargo hold.You extend your hand to her. "Become my pet."(cont.)
>>31041292>You extend your hand to her. "Become my pet."Aw yiss
>>31040945>"I can't possibly be disarmed AND help you in war now, can you?" She has a point. "If you want that from me, you'll have to let me make a new sword and a new army. Of my own this time, not borrowed from Dorian, of course. I never shared his taste for human children anyway."New sword is fine.New army ... what does that require? Souls? pretty much the only source I can think of that will be ok are lintha and other fae.>200 years too fastagree to a slower figure of shrinking as long as it is constantly shrinking at a set figure. I am ok with going all the way up to 500 years.if she bulks at that, point out there will be other wyld territories you will likely get in the future where a more permanent border might be an option, but in THIS case you already agreed to get rid of it all.
>>31041292>. "Become my pet."EF is best QM
>>31041292I did not expect this.
"...But-""Your Wyld realm will be defined by me. Your feeding will be provided by me. You will have the weapons and servants I'll allow you to have, and as much gossamer as I'll see fit to leave to you." You state."...What will I be getting out of this deal?" She asks, in utter disbelief."Me, as your mistress and owner."The light has inundated the hold, brilliant as noon. Yaraon is flabbergasted. Tia is... massively turned on, it seems?"...Why should I agree to this?" Silk can only mumble."Because you want to be safe. I can make you feel safe. Because you want to be yourself, and to enjoy yourself. I can make a yourself that you'll enjoy being. And... because you want to see interesting things. And I'm the most interesting thing you'll find in Creation.She stares at your hand, entranced.>She takes your hand>She refuses and you default on your previous Oath (Also I'll have to AFK for a long while. by the way, unless i see as many people complaining about wanting to change this roll as I've seen complain for the previous botch, I'm not going to change how I do rolls)

Rolled 9>>31041377>She takes your handThis is pretty hilarious. Do we need to find a collar for her now? Or would tia get upset that she didn't get one first?And no to changing the system. Its fine the way it is.
>>31041377See you later!>She takes your handSounds a lot more fun and less pain-in-the-ass than the original deal. A bit easier, but eh, I doubt we'll be lacking challenges and suspense in the quest.
>>31041377>>She takes your handEF is a kind and gentle QM.
>>31041377>She takes your handWhat is she going to wear, she can't be a maid Mirriam is our meido
Rolled 1>>31041450she's a pet, pets don't wear anything (except maybe a collar)
>>31041450We have a meido AND a butler, so...hmmm.Wait, she's a fucking blob thing, why would she wear clothes (when not needed to)?
Ok, this seems unanimous and as such resolved. as soon as we are done with it, PLEASE find a secluded spot alone with tia andUse talk to heart:"TIA! You didn't kill garnet, he trapped you in an illusion. After letting you kill an illusion of him he took my form and said hateful things to you, things I would never say, specifically to break your heart because he was jealous that you have my soul and he cannot. Only when you started to run away did I manage to pierce the illusion, at which point he escaped, and you fell asleep crying before I could explain properly. I thought you realized this is what happened, but the comment you made earlier made me realize you still don't know"
>>31041461>(except maybe a collar)Yes this is a good idea
>>31041484What comment? That she was wrong to kill Garret? She already knows that.
>>31041292>Social + Zenith = 10 10 8 10 4 1 10 7 2 2 = 10 successesPetfaeherewego.jpgAlso jesus christ what the fuck how did the dice get that absurd? That's more successes then we have dice.
>>31041523Tens are worth two successes
Rolled 12, 63, 69, 84 = 228>>310415232 for each 10 gives us 8, the 7 and 8 give us 2 more, the 1 subtracts one, and we get +1 from Majestic Radiant Presence
Rolled 3>>310415381 doesn't subtract successes
>>310415381s don't subtract success and all MRP does is give us 3 extra dice to roll
>>31041555correct. Only matters in the case of a botch.
>>31041377>She takes your handAt least we won't be treating her like an actual person with real feelings.
>>31041507Didn't she say she thinks he is dead?Even if she does know, it is worth actually explicitly saying to her what happened, and that it was not maka, and that you do not think those awful things about her
>>31041533I know that. But I feel that the dice gods have returned their favor to us! That or having more then 4 dice to fling helps with it.
>>31041636can you explain? I am not quite getting your post
>>31041678People have been treating the fae as if they were actual people with real feelings.But they're not real people, and their feelings are just props and lies.If we treat her like a pet, I assume we won't be doing that anymore.
>>31041678I think he's referring to how fae fake their emotions. On the other hand, a shape and role are restricting to a fae. In essence they have a distinct tendency to believe their own lies.
>>31041636>Real feelingsThat depends. If she fell in love with us then it would be real. Fae can't get rid of bonds made with beings from creation. Unlike say another fae where it would be fake.
>>31041699But pets have feelings. people treat their pets with kindness.The emotions are real, they are just native to their being. And far less tightly integrated with their person. They are real artificial external graft emotions
Hey, Exaltedfag? Feel free to shoot this down if it would be too much of a bother for you, but could you use your Twitter to tell us that a new thread is incoming in x days or y hours instead of just posting links? I don't really find it useful to just have links pop up when I can just search for Exalted in the catalog and find any of these threads that way anyway. I would find it much more useful to know when, instead, I should be looking.If not, that's fine too. Just wanted to toss some feedback your way as far as your twitter is concerned.
>>31041738>they are just native to their beingtypo, meant>they are just not native to their being
She seems to be the creation loving type of Fae and those types are far easier to control just by nature of not wanting to kill everything.>>31041774This is more annoying then my grammer nazi grandmother.
>>31041817>thenthanthan = comparison (more a annoying than, less than, more than)then = time (turn right, then left; pillage then burn)
>>31041377>Tia is... massively turned on, it seems?I am completely unsurprised by this.
>>31041890Of course, she's best lunar mate after all
>>31041865I know bro. I just like giving anons that correct spelling and grammar a hard time.
>>31041890>>31041906We are oddly gentle and maternal with our absolute Solar authority.
Rolled 10>>31041890I think it's because we remind her of how she remembers our former incarnation with that 10 successes social attackthat or she's into petplay
>>31041377>(Also I'll have to AFK for a long while. by the way, unless i see as many people complaining about wanting to change this roll as I've seen complain for the previous botch, I'm not going to change how I do rolls)I'd prefer it different, honestly, but I understand you're not about to change. That said, a pastebin explaining what each stat and caste is, and giving examples of what each combination would look like and when you do and do not call rolls. Basically, write something up that if read by an observant player would give them a pretty good chance of guessing if there's a roll, and if so what we'd be rolling.
>>31041928She's probably turned on because we're acting like the benevolent and magnanimous god-queen we're supposed to be.We're playing our role very well, which makes her feel even better about being our knight and sworn protector. This is the sort of thing that earns undying fealty.
Rolled 1So after she takes our hand we're hugging her, removing the iron and calling her a good girl, right?
...and just minutes ago fa/tg/uys were shitting themselves over being fucked by QM...how ironic...
Rolled 61>>31042006>calling her a good girl, right?A good pet
>>31041292Is Majestic Radiant Presence UMI? Or just being extra persuasive? I'm honestly not sure with her response.Not that I care either way, just wondering.
>>31042006of course. Then we'll have to figure out how to make objects out of Essence, so we can make a Glorious Solar [choker] for her
>>31042044Its not UMI, that's husband seducing demon dance.
>>31042044It's not UMI. It's just being extra charismatic. We explicitly tried to not make Maka an UMI monster.
>>31041970More like because she likes it.>>31042054>husband seducing demon danceSomething we really should get one of these days. Just in case we need to do a dance for a army or two.
>>31042054>>31042061Ok. As I said, I wasn't sure. I wasn't there when we got our ability and her response to it could have easily been interpreted as 'UMI time'
>>31042061I love how artificially making yourself more charismatic is pretty much the exact same thing. But people care more about messing with peoples minds even though either way you're doing just that. Just one is making yourself so godly they have to submit while the other is making them submit though mental effects.
>>31042092That and she has a bit of a domination/submission fetish, yes. She likes seeing us get all powerful and authoritative.
Rolled 1>>31042123you can resist NMI by paying WP, no matter what happens, and become immunecan't do that for UMI, that's the difference
>>31042061>We explicitly tried to not make Maka an UMI monster.Well let's not be too hasty, there are some cases where we would want a UMI, like against slavers or people we really don't like
>>31042123It's because they still have the option to decline. For example, it doesn't matter how hot you look if you try to sleep with someone with a sleazy pickup line. With a UMI, there's not even a chance at resisting, and usually permanently fucks up the person
>>31042123it's the difference between making a genuinely good meal or making someone thing the ham sandwich you made is 5 star cuisine
>>31042147It's still in the end the same effect though different means. Not only that but UMI can also be fluffed as speaking so well you can't naturally shake it off. So it always seems weird to me when people act like it's the worst thing in the world compared to say mass murder.
>>31042169Nah it's the difference between doing a mental effect to force them to agree or cheating and boosting yourself above normal limits and forcing them to agree just in a harder means. Either way you fuck them up because it's not like anybody is going to spend willpower unless they really don't want to do that.
>>31042169Sort of. It's closer to taking steriods vs. shooting other runners in the legs
>>31042277I like this analogy.
It's good we got that out of the way, every Exalt Quest needs:1. A virtue argument2. A great curse argument3. An UMI argument
>>31042297Though I'm glad 3E is moving away from the charms as always distinct things. Mainly because it should move things away from the "Exalted artificially boosts!/reality hacks/whatever" Line of thought into the more "Holy fuck if this guy puts effort he can do amazing things!"
Rolled 9>>31041377>She takes your hand
Rolled 8>>31042193It's because there's a certain visceral horror to having your mind/personality alerted with magic while leaving you body intact. A death of the self, even as the body lives. Whether it's rational or correct is a matter for debate, but I can at least understand the reaction.
I wonder how long while is? Do you think it's more than 3 hours?
>>31041377>Yaraon is flabbergasted. >Tia is... massively turned on, it seems?I told you we'll fuck our way into godhood. I told you dog!
>>31043283godhood is a downgrade for a Solar
>>31043283Godhood is pretty weak in this setting. Primordialhood on the other hand...But I doubt /tg/ would go for that.
>>31043563>Godhood is pretty weak in this setting.Extremely variable, actually. 'God' is an entire class of entity ranging from the equivalent of single-celled life to the Unconquered Sun himself.>Primordialhood on the other hand...Is often crippling, still got themselves killed, tortured, and imprisoned by exalts, and only available to Green Sun Princes.
>>31043563Doesn't that mean being some sort of monstrous conglomeration of souls and the representative of some concept?
>>31043643yup. Which, when you think about it would mean we'd be 2nd level souls I suppose.
>>31043623This. The bull god would do pretty damn well against the average solar one on one and the UCS himself could rape most exalts without trying.
>>31043677but could he rape an E10 Solar?
>>31043695Considering he has a scene-long perfect defense? Likely, unless he's forced to suppress virtues.
>>31043643Kinda. A Primordial is simultaneously a location, an organization, and a single being that's the gestalt of both of those things. For example, Cecelyne is a desert, a religion, and the being that is those two things combined. Malfeas is a city, a lordship, and the being that is those two things combined.Primordials aren't human.
>>31043724>Thinking an E10 Solar would just straight up duel him without having a planSeriously, you don't get to E10 by being this stupid
>>31043695>E10 SolarThe things that don't exist anymore and have vaguely defined powers that has never been stated?
Would it be possible for someone to give a rundown on all the various magical substances in exalted for a newbie?From what I've seen so far, Iron is magically anti-fae (Steel doesn't exist yet?), the Fae turn emotions into 'Gossamer' which is vaguely magical, and then Jade is some kind of super magic?I wonder how much Gossamer Maka+Tia produce between them with just ambient emotion
>>31043871Pretty sure steel exists. Iron is just classic anti-fae, and is used to combat them as it nullifies their powers and whatnot.
>>31043756Conky automatically wins at planning against the solar however due to it being part of his domain of 'Being best at any opposed conflict with a person'I'm just tossing out stuff for whiteboxing a battle between them. As saying 'The solar has a plan' is an assumption and also assuming that Conky doesn't.>>31043871Iron is not magic. It's just the nature of it being too solid and...real...for Fae to handle. Gossamer is a low-tier artifact material compared to the magical materials but VERY plentiful with Fae. It's also very good for making stuff related to Dreams and Stories.Jade is just generally all-round awesome and the first of the True Magical Materials. It's relatively common compared to the others and very versatile, being able to be made into basically anything and be very good at it. It does however, favor elemental things.
>>31043865If you're going to compare the most powerful god in existence it's just fair to compare him to the most powerful Solar in existence before saying that gods are better than Solars
>>31043871>Steel It exists it just isn't everywhere yet.>GossamerIt's mainly just something a fae can use to turn into something else. That is pretty magical. Biggest use for us though is dosh.>JadeDragon blooded material. It's also the currency of the realm.There is also.>SoulsteelSteel made of souls>Moonsilver Lunar materials. Used in the lunar tattoos.>OrichalcumHoly gold purified by sunlight.
>>31044017There's also Starmetal which is made from dead gods
>>31043950Biggest issue is we have no idea just what E10 solars really looked like. We have some high level charms but most are like E7 We do however have UCS stats.
>>31044017What about the bronze that Tianna's been using?
>>31043871There's Jade, which comes in multiple colors and is the most common. Dragonblooded usually have Jade weapons fitting their element.There's Orichalcum, it's made when gold is melted by lava and heated by the sun and found (very rarely) in the ground or can be manufactured. most often used by solarsThere's Moonsilver, which is Silver and stuff and used by Luanrs, mostly. I think it can change its shape or something.There Starmetal, made out of stars that fall down when a destiny changes, mostly used by SidirealsThere's Soulsteel, steel infused with the tortured souls of the dead, used by Death Knights.There's also Adamant, which is super-diamond. It's very, very sharp and hard but isn't commonly used by any type of Exalt
Someone was saying something that most solar exalted just wind up using old exalted stuff?
>>31044072it's just bronze
>>31044129what do you mean exactly?Do you mean that most Solars use old artifacts often looted from their own tombs? That's because in the current age people can't make stuff comparable to the super-weapons of the past so older is better, unless you're a solar crafter
>>31044129Orichalcum is indestructible so if you can't make your own stuff it's easier to just find some old artifacts
>>31044072That's made of tin and copper. Mundane materials are still mundane materials. Steel, bronze, iron, etc. There's also weirder, more obscure stuff - feathersteel, Chiaroscuro glass, and so forth.
>>31044273all artifacts are indestructible unless you use special charms
>>31044017>Gossamer>It's mainly just something a fae can use to turn into something else. That is pretty magical. Biggest use for us though is dosh.Some people were talking about it being good armor, that true?
>>31044352Depends on the armor. It's better then anything normal for sure. But not as good as most decent level artifact armor.
>>31044103>There's also Adamant, which is super-diamond. It's very, very sharp and hard but isn't commonly used by any type of ExaltAdamant Caste called.
>>31044103>There's also Adamant, which is super-diamond. It's very, very sharp and hard but isn't commonly used by any type of ExaltIt's Minecraft diamonds.

She takes your hand.Tia makes some kind of inarticulate, gushing/squeeing noise.Yaraon has the look of someone so utterly caught by surprise that he has no idea how he should react.Zaan is desperately trying not to laugh."You know, this is going to be actually harder on you than it would be if she were more independent." He says, trying to stay serious. "You WILL have to take care of her.""It's okay." You reply to him, gently removing Silk's chains, which fall to the ground loudly, and instead taking the veil wrapped around your neck and chest, and tying one end of it around her neck in its place. It sinks a bit into her flesh as it returns to semiliquid consistency, but she doesn't melt through it or slide out of it, even though it would be trivially easy to. "I'm sure she'll behave, and handle herself just fine.""...Yes! I will!" She says, looking super determined. Her shape has changed, becoming more definite and less menacing, probably in reaction.What should you do now? >Ask Silk to alter her appearance>Ask Silk to retrieve and turn (all/part of) her luggage to you>Ask Silk (something else)>Ask Yaraon something (what?)>Ask Zaan something (what?)>Let go of Silk's leash, she is free to stay around you>Rejoin the meeting (talk about?)>Rest your wounds>Spend some time with Tia

Rolled 10>>31046317>Ask if there was anything else we were needed for and if not, head with Tia to whatever bed we're "resting" in. Do not let go of Silk's leash, we want her to know we take our role as her owner seriously.

Rolled 10>>31046317>Tell Silk to make herself a maid outfit?Tell Silk to make herself a maid outfit.
>>31046683I spent decades meditating under waterfalls and on mountaintops, cultivating my internal energy so I could return to produce lewd ideas such as these.
>>31046736Eh. I'm not into maids - especially when it's something messy like goo girls, or for harem-members themed as pets. If we're going to have a maid, it should be a mortal, to play counterpoint to Regis.
>>31046736Silk can't be our maid, Mirriam is our meido, speaking of which we should sex her too
>>31046736We have a maid. Silk is our sex pet/impromptu lubricant.
"Well, I think we should get some rest." You say. "I'm still a bit wounded and need some time to heal. Tia is a bit beat up too."If Tia's animal totem were some kind of dog, she'd be waggling her tail right now, you imagine."I see." Zaan nods, and coughs loudly until Yaraon gets the message and realizes it's time to leave. "Too bad the room is busy, but I'm sure no one uses the cargo hold right now." He winks.As they leave, you briefly consider that, yes, the cargo hold isn't the most comfortable space on the ship.But you don't have much of a choice in any case, it seems. Especially Tia, she doesn't look like she's going to wait another minute.Yawning lazily, you slip off of the second and last strip of cloth tied around your waist, and drape it over Silk like she's a coat-hanger. "I really need a rest." You mumble, lying down, stomach-up, on the floor. "Hey, Tia. Massage me. With Silk.""With... Silk?" She mumbles, awestruck by your absolute genius."Of course. You see anything else appropriate around here?" You reply. "Be sure not to miss a spot."Tia and Silk exchange a knowing glance and nod to each other. Obeying to her silent order, Silk gently lies over you. Your body is wrapped in her substance. Much to your surprise, it doesn't feel slimy or sticky at all: it's more like fresh, cool oil, maybe a bit creamy. She spreads over you like a blanket, then, sliding all over your body, mostly gathers up below you, gently lifting you off the rough floor like a water mattress. On your part, the feeling is somewhat like gently floating on water, lulled comfortably. A thin layer of her bright blue substance is spread uniformly all over your body, however, clinging to it just like slightly thick oil would.Tia then provides the massage, and much, much more, over the next several hours.[session end]
>>31046769Mirriam is the queen's maid, she was just assigned to us.
>>31046811>Not only is she happy to play massage oil, she volunteers to be our mattressGoo girls are the best pets.
>>31046811>"With... Silk?" She mumbles, awestruck by your absolute genius.That one was for you anon
>>31046886You're welcome.Or possibly thank you.Either way I think I just got us some Tia points. And I think some Silk points as well.
>>31046811Thanks for running! Glad the session got a happy ending.
Rolled 7>>31046811I'm betting Silk was used as Tia's condom a few times...
So, time to get our experience and see our available charms, right?
>>31046822Is she her personal maid or just one of the ones that works there, because we could probably steal her if it's the latter
>>31046811we need a smutfag to write this scene on pastebin
>>31046940>implying Tia's using protectionMaka already lampshaded in-character that Tia's been anything but careful. We're going to end up with a whole litter of half-caste babies in three seasons.
>>31046953It's the latter and we're definitely poaching her.
>>31046945We can at least afford Tiger Training by now but I think we should hold on see what else we can get, it's not like we could use it yet anyway
>>31046967>Three seasonsSupernaturals in Exalted are pregnant for an entire year.Which are significantly longer than Earth years.
Rolled 7>>31046969>>31046953nah, we already stole her dress and her daughter, and are going to steal her son, Silk can be our maid, Amata can keep hers
>>31046983No, that's only Dragon-blooded. Other exalt types are pregnant for three of the five seasons.
>>31047011Oh, really? I know godbloods are too, unless Jukashi lied.
>>31046979I just want to see for now. Personally, I would prefer holding off on voting until next thread so we have some time to see our options and discuss them. I'm inclined to pick up Tiger-Warrior right now, just so we already have it once we get some downtime, but I'm open to other options if other things seem more urgent.
>>31047025I don't remember reading anything about god-blooded gestation. Jukashi may have just been extrapolating. As far as exalts are concerned, though, Dragonblooded have 15 month pregnancies, but Celestials have the normal 9.
>>31046991>No sign of Irene for like the past three quarters of the entire questIt's sad, man. Can't even remember if we've seen her since the quarry stuff.
>>31047064We saw her briefly during the diplomatic stuff in Tianna, but we left the morning after and haven't been back since.
>>31046979>We can at least afford Tiger Training by now but I think we should hold on see what else we can get, it's not like we could use it yet anywayI would put in a strong word for Graceful Crane Stance. It's one of those bread-and-butter abilities that seems a bit boring compared to alternatives. And then you recognize that it's wuxia-style mobility that opens up all kinds of tactical options and stunts.
>>31046991...Amata has a lot of maids. Like, in the mid tens of maids. We can nab one.Also, we're going to have to leave her one of her children. Now I'd rather leave Samiel because we need a tech head more than a warrior and troop leader (though having one would be useful), but rulership might be matrilineal in Tianna so I'm not sure Irene's actually available for us to take with us.
>>31047064We can let her poke around our new Raksha. I imagine she'd be interested in examining her.Silk doesn't seem like she'd mind, unless Irene decides to try vivisecting her or something.

>>31047081>Graceful Crane StanceI definitely want that eventually, just not yet.
>>31047097>1 bonus XP (>>31046439)Well now I just feel accomplished.Thanks OP.
>>31047097>Tiger Warrior Training Technique (Permanent, trains followers increasing their Physical, Dawn and Zenith scores by one dot per week of training, up to a maximum of either 4 or your score, whichever is lower.)Fuck it. I'm still in the 'let's pick it up now so we definitely have it later' camp. I feel like if we keep putting it off, we're going to eventually find ourselves with downtime but without this charm.
>>31047097>Heroism-Encouraging Presence (1 Ess, Scene. +3 to all rolls related to mass combat and troop leadership.)I feel like we're going to need it for assaulting Dorian's castle
>>31047097Terrifying Glorious Presence seems useful, if only because it means whenever we turn on Majestic Radiant Presence we can't botch social actions.Of course, I think we've only botched Mental so far...
>>31047128In case I wasn't clear, that's a vote for Tiger-Warrior Training Technique. There's a ton of other stuff I also want, but I want us to make sure we pick this up now so we definitely have it when we get a chance to use it.
>>31047110That was a well earned XP right there. Your lewd-fu is to be commended.
>>31047097Hey EF if we have enough XP could we buy a charm mid game?
>>31047097>Heroism-Encouraging Presence (1 Ess, Scene. +3 to all rolls related to mass combat and troop leadership.)This seems like the Charm we need now, not the Charm we need eventually to build an empire.
>>31047097I say Tiger Warrior Training.Question: Do familiars count as followers for Tiger Warrior Training? Because training our pet in more Zenith couldn't hurt.
>>31047064I miss Irene.
>>31047158I don't see why not. training times are silly anyway.
>>31047097>Heroism-Encouraging Presence (1 Ess, Scene. +3 to all rolls related to mass combat and troop leadership.)We need that and it deliciously applies to narrative and our exaltation when we inspired people.
Dang. Sounds like people are going with Heroism-Encouraging Presence - which, mind you, should still be super useful. Can we agree on getting Tiger-Warrior Training Technique eight experience points from now, at least? I really want to make sure we have it well in advance of any proper downtime, and I have a feeling we're about to get some after this fae war.
>>31047097We probably have about like 2 threads left while we deal the fae I think we could get like 8 Xp by then, buy Tiger warriors after that, so for now I want this>Heroism-Encouraging Presence (1 Ess, Scene. +3 to all rolls related to mass combat and troop leadership.)
>>31047097I am torn about getting Tiger Warrior Training Technique or Dawn 4. Screw it. I'll vote for buying Tiger Warrior Training Technique. Its better to have a well trained forced and not need it then not have it and need it. We also need to get to toughen up our Shota butler. He will need to learn how to defend himself if he says with us.
>>31047253for sure. The problem is Heroism-Encouraging Presence is going to be useful probably next session
>>31047296Yeah, I can appreciate that, otherwise I would be miffed. So, Heroism-Encouraging Presence right now, then save for Tiger-Warrior Training Technique.That sound like a general consensus to you guys?
Remember to archive!
>>31047296Also when we lead assaults on the Lintha.
>>31047316Yeah, sounds like the consensus to me. Hell, I might even suggest Exaltedfag make special note of it, or let us vote in advance for that so it just gets automatically spent. I've got a feeling not many other people would want to pre-spend our experience like that, though, just in case some emergency crops up.
>>31047136That's definitely something we want eventually
>>31047097I wonder what our familiar's statline is like. She's a noble, she's probably not pathetic. Probably.
>>31047097Hey EF do we have an essence rating in your system?
>>31047633Can you HAVE a fae noble as a familiar?
>>31047633She's not a familiar. A familiar is a distinct thing in Exalted.
>>31047649She's listed as one in our stat sheet
>>31047634Not really, why?
>>31047646>>31047649Just going of what the sheet says.>1 XP (gained Silk as a familiar)
>>31047677>>31047684Ah. I guess there isn't the same distinction in Exaltedfag's version.
>>31047646You're a goddamn Zenith.You can have anything as a Familiar if you want to. Who's gonna tell you you can't?
>>31047720remind me, what does a familiar do in exalted? and does it matter in this system?
>>31047741Not really a lot. It just means she's a pet rather than an ally.
>>31047757Ah, so she doesn't have any sort of metaphysical bond with us or anything. Besides being social so hard she fell in love with us of course.
>>31047741Normally, they have a metaphysical bond and can share our essence/charms and vice versa. They're usually badass animals that we can buff using our own self-buff charms and essence.In this quest, it seems it's just any kind of supernatural pet.
>>31047844You need specific charms to do that. Which you'll gain the ability to learn now.
>>31048083...which would be Zenith. Survival (Which is all the familar charms) is a Zenith Caste ability. Handy.
>>31048083To what extent can our commands redefine Silk? Have we effectively gained control of her Heart Grace? Can we have her reshape herself at will?
Hey EF I was wondering what our DV is, or whatever equivalent you have
>>31048363Dawn+Physical+Misc/2 rounded up, he said previously. So, that's 3 normally, or 5 with Solar Hero activated.
>>31048385>(Dawn+Physical+Misc)/2I assume this is what you meant?
>>31048261We don't have enough twilight to know the answer to that question. Not having twilight is kinda annoying.
>>31048261You don't have her "heart grace". You can have her alter her appearance, but that's because she took on a naturally fluid form, not because you can change her fundamental nature for some reason.The basic idea is that you have a lot of power on her, but it's a power you have because you convinced her to become your willing slave/servant/pet/whatever word you prefer or offends you less.She is subservient to you, but willingly so: a role she accepted. Just because a dog recognizes you as its owner, it doesn't give you the power to transform it into a cat, to use a metaphor.Or, to explain more accurately: Fae always play roles, because outside of them they don't "exist" in creation. They craft personas for themselves. You convinced her to change persona, and her new persona is one subservient to you. She's doing this because she wants it, and because you've persuaded her that, by being subservient to you, she'll get what she wants: safety, entertainment, to satisfy her curiosity, to play around and to be lazy, and to express herself to her leisure without being bound to the whims or orders of other fae.If you treat her badly, or give her the feeling that you're not going to provide these things to her, she'll probably drop the persona and leave, just like a mistreated dog running from its owner or turning on him.To make a slightly lewder comparison, you persuaded her that slave-and-master roleplay is amazing and will satisfy her needs, and she decided to play along because you've been extremely persuasive.If it REALLY will satisfy her needs you could well keep her as your pet slave forever.If it won't... well, she's extremely long-lived and therefore very patient, so unless you really fuck everything up, she'll be willing to put up with a lot before getting tired and leaving (or worse).She is not technically bound to an oath now. You could oathbind her, but that would mean treating her as an equal, rather than as a subject.
>>31047097is 5 as high as zenith can go?where is our current XP amount available is listen?
>>31048636>safety, entertainment, to satisfy her curiosity, to play around and to be lazy, and to express herself to her leisure without being bound to the whims or orders of other fae.So she's a cat.
>>31048756Wait... but she sees us as her superior. How is that like a cat?
So. was Garnet killed by tia and his illusion was just a last act of revenge... or did he escape?Because if he escaped, we now have a powerful fae noble who has a grudge and an obsession with us (what with being sworn to love us forever); an interesting BBEG to say the least.One of the reasons it matters is that instead of taking our familiar's sword, we had her destroy it. So she is literally incapable of self defense.
>>31048781She's an intelligent, kinky cat.
>>31048785Garnet's illusion was killed by tia, then we killed him ourselves.
>>31048756Quick question on the familiar background: Will it naturally increase if our familiar grows in power, or will we have to deal properly with whoever that other fae lord sends to harm our pet?
>>31048854I thought we smashed glass... was garnet the glass? did we accidentally punch him in the soul during that illusion thing?
How in the hell did I miss this?Whoever suggested Silk be used as oil? I want to find you and shake your hand because god damn.
>>31048899I remember we broke through that glass thing and he screamed, it could go either way
>>31048925>Rule 13: All slain enemies will be cremated, or at least have several rounds of ammunition emptied into them, not left for dead at the bottom of the cliff. The announcement of their deaths, as well as any accompanying celebration, will be deferred until after the aforementioned disposal.
>>31048925Yeah, It was kinda ambiguous.
>>31048636How much is the base health level for a fae noble? 3, 5?
>>31049192probably 5. Nobles are fairly close to Dragonblooded in power
>>31048636We should ask her to try to make something awesome out of our libido. Well, some of our libido.
>>31049283I'm pretty sure it's more. A fae's body is really just a shape it wears. Slicing the arms off your coat doesn't actually hurt you, does it?
>>31049349It's just a shape they wear, but they're playing a part. If a knight in a story gets stabbed, he gets hurt
>>31049347A grand dildoklave?
Could someone give me a quick rundown of non noble Fae? I want to know what sort of opposition we can expect next time, and what sort of minions our pet can make.
>>31049422different rulebooks... but they are both essential rulebooks to live by.
>>31049433I thought that was just their military? Don't they have like, courtiers and stuff?
>>31048984>>31049422We did tell the crew to nail everything around the ship and on the ship with iron, and they proceeded to stab and nail even the deck planks.So , imho that comes pretty close. The only problem is the lack of a body.
Rolled 2So, when's the next thread?
>>31048636Next thread, we should show up with Goo-girl wrapped around our body like clothes.We can tell everyone we've got a new Silk Dress.
>>31057478>We can tell everyone we've got a new Silk Dress.Heh.
>>31057972I found it punderwhelming.
>>31049192Pretty sure its 5. There are after all heroic commoner fae. Though oddly enough there do not seem to be any in this swamp.
