Mental + Dawn + HEP = 10 7 9 2 9 6 2 10 = 7 successesYour forces pour through the fey lord's palace and, in a series of brief and bloody engagements room by room, corridor by corridor, completely clean it up of opposition. The passageways are littered with the corpses of hobgoblin lizardmen, and some of your men are reporting back to you that the throne room is empty and under control.You are hanging back, short on breath, blood and essence. Even your mortal followers are running circles around you at this point: all the fights, the stress and the wounds of this campaign are piling up on you.You still don't have a clear view of the situation, but the military part of the campaign seems to be a success. You destroyed a fortified force almost twice your number and suffered very little casualties, although you don't know exactly how many yet.Of course, the enemy commander is still nowhere to be seen.Having lost your bearings for a moment, you're relieved when you see Samiel, about as exhausted as you are, appearing before you as he turns a corner. "Oh... Maka. Here... you are." He pants, slowly sheathing back his battered, blood-soaked sword. It's so bent out of shape that it refuses to slide evenly and completely into the scabbard.As you hear the distant cheers of your pirates coming from somewhere else in the circular palace, you prop yourself up against a wall, and slowly slide down. He sits down across the corridor from you."...Tia and Silk?" You ask."Zaan says that a few of the barbarians have seen Tia and Silk head down a flight of stairs two corridors from here. They didn't follow them.""...Talon? Dorian?""My bet? They're down there as well." He replies, slowly standing back up. "...You stay here and rest a bit. I'll take a team and go check.">Okay.>No, I'm coming too.>No, I'm going, you stay here.
>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. After a long and terrible campaign against the Wyld, you and your allies have finally stormed the last stronghold of fae resistance: the palace of the Prince, Tarien Dorian.>Solar? Zenith?

"I'll come with you." You say to Samiel."Are you... sure? We don't know what's down there. You look like you could use some rest.""Look who's talking." You reply. You descend the stairs together. The atmosphere gets confusing and oppressive, and you feel the Wyld trying to pull you apart as you move further down, step by step. "Ugh. This is much thicker than the Middlemarches." Samiel grunts."Can you keep it at bay?" You ask, worried. You have a Charm protecting you, but you're not sure Samiel has one as well."...I'll manage." He says, tossing his sword out of its badly-fitting scabbard. It vanishes in a cloud of spiders before hitting the ground.Finally, you reach the bottom of the flight of stairs: you're in a hazy forest covered with gore and entrails."A forest underground?" You wonder."Wyld." Samiel shrugs, approaching what seems to be the giant corpse of a living building, made from flesh and blood, exploded from the innards and likely the cause of the carnage surrounding you.You sneak in as well. Blood and broken, ripped slabs of meat are scattered everywhere, together with disgusting growths and pulsating organs of unknown purpose and origin."Last Behemoth?" Samiel asks.You nod."Tia?"You nod. Without another word, you begin searching.(cont)
Aw yes, up in time for exalted.
Eventually, you find Tia.She's siting on what looks like a giant liver fallen from the roof and half-splatted on the pavement like an overripe pear. A bloody skull with still a lot of flesh attached in one hand, a small knife in the other. Talon is lying on the ground next to her, belly up, passed-out."...Tia?" You call out to her, confused."...Maka!" She drops everything and runs towards you with reckless abandon."STILL WOUNDED!" You scream just in time to keep her from hugging your wounds back open. She slows down and instead fives you a regular tackling hug that only splinters your skull a bit."I wanted it to be a surprise!" She says."Uhmm..." You look at the half-flayed skull. the top has been opened and emptied. It's clearly a fey skull, sharp and angular. "...Tarien Dorian?"She nods energetically. You hear Samiel whistling in amazement behind you."...Where is Silk?" You ask her."Oh, once we were done here she said she was heading for the throne room." She replies. You notice that she's been wounded in the fight, but seems to be doing fine. She's looking up to you with longing eyes...>Ask her what happened>Praise her>Leave this dungeon, move up, rally the troops>Leave this dungeon, move up, go to the throne room>Leave this dungeon, move up, evacuate

Rolled 6>>31237383>>Praise her>>Leave this dungeon, move up, go to the throne room
You pat her head with a light smile on your face. You were so worried about this whole ordeal, but the handled everything on her own. Well, with Silk, but that just mans you can trust Silk too"I'm so proud of you." You kiss her.You are interrupted, though, by a distant, light rumbling noise."...That came from upstairs." Notes Samiel, who is meanwhile helping Talon back on his feet."...Let's go to the throne room." You suggest, taking Tia's hand.The first thing you notice is that the Wyld here has become a lot less hostile, though not any weaker. As you rusk back up and into the corridors lading to the throne room, you sense a definite difference in essence. The hobgoblin's corpses are quickly melting, some of them already vanished to nothingness. Finally, you arrive.The room is circular, fashioned like a shallow pool with a complex system of channels and waterfalls keeping the water circulating down and, sometimes, up. A vast stone throne dominates the center of the room, with a large reverse-waterfall acting as backdrop to it. The water pools on the roof as well, and from there flows in many directions.And there's Silk sitting on the throne, or more appropriately slouched on it. The lower part of her shapeless body melds with the pool of water."Maka! Tia! Hello there." She says as you enter. Several soldiers and Zaan are already here, sitting around, and they welcome you as well, with loud cheers. Finally, you can relax. Your knees give way, and you drop on the floor. "We... won.""Took long enough." grins Rubel Sareni, who you notice sitting a few meters from you. "And we've lost some good men along the way.""But we've won." Points out Samiel, sitting down as well. "And... we can take a break.">Order Silk to relinquish control over the Wyld zone>Rest, leave Samiel in charge>Rest, leave Zaan in charge>Rest, leave Tia in charge>Rest, leave Silk in charge>No time to rest, organize the troops to leave the Wyld

Rolled 6>>31237752>Rest, leave Zaan and Silk in chargeYou know, we never did see what stuff Silk had
>>31237752>Rest, leave Zaan in charge>Rest, leave Tia in charge
Rolled 3We should also give Silk some headpats and a forehead kiss for doing a good job and helping our men and Tia.
>>31237847true. We do need to ask her how gossamer works though, so we can figure out what she can do with it, how much we can safely extract, and stuff like that.
Rolled 2>>31237752>Rest, leave Zaan in chargeAsk Rubel about the casualties. We'll need to make sure the men who fought for us get proper honors.Also ask Silk about what she can do now that she has control. Maybe she could open a path for Flow and the other gods? They might not like Fae much, but we're here to build bridges.
>>31237890>Also ask Silk about what she can do now that she has control. Maybe she could open a path for Flow and the other gods? They might not like Fae much, but we're here to build bridges.They have directly competing interests. I seriously doubt they'll ever be best friends.
>>31237752>Rest, leave Zaan in charge>Rest, leave Silk in charge
"...Zaan, can you take charge of the situation with Silk?" You ask the Lunar, who has just finished hearing reports from the barbarian leaders."...Well, sure. Rest a bit. You've earned it." He nods, then exchanges a glance with the fae. "We'll take care of things from here."You close your eyes, feeling Tia nuzzling up to you as you slowly slip into unconsciousness.Some time passes.[1 HP recovered][All Essence recovered]When you open your eyes again, you're neatly tucked in a four poster bed somewhere. The feeling of the soft mattress and the fluffy blankets against your skin is something absolutely delightful after the struggle and non-stop fights of the last days.You take a look around, your muscles still aching. Someone removed your ragged sweater and put you in a light blue nightgown. Your wounds have been treated, cleaned, sutured and bandaged, you presume by Zaan.Judging by the white marble walls and roof of the room, you imagine you must still be in the palace somewhere. You must have slept longer than you expected to, but you have no idea how much time has passed. The room is mostly empty, but enormous. The bed itself is about eight meters across.Despite your aching body and many worried, questions, and business you must surely attend to, you can't help it, and you just enjoy rolling around in it for a good minute.You feel someone rise from another corner of the bed: Tia. Unlike you, she's been cleaned up, but still wearing her white dress. She moves closer to you. "Good morning, Maka." She greets you, accompanied by a kiss."Morning, Tia... how long have I been sleeping?""No idea." She replies, laying down on you, stomach on stomach. "I've been sleeping too." She gently nibbles on your ear while whispering in it. "We can do something more now that you're awake... We need to celebrate, after all.">Of course, let's celebrate our victory>Of course, let's celebrate our wedding>It can wait, we have a lot of things to worry about now
Hey, does a Gossamer sword have any convenient properties like gossamer armour?'Cause since his sword turned to spiders we could give him a new one as a gift -it might dislodge the stick from his arse a bit.
Rolled 8>>31238159>Of course, let's celebrate our weddingWe're married after allWe still only went on like one date, that's okay though
>>31238159>Of course, let's celebrate our victoryWe're not married yet, we still need a party and stuff
>>31238159>Of course, let's celebrate our victory>Of course, let's celebrate our weddingEldorado.gifLet's make sure we're careful to not rupture our sutures though.
Rolled 1>>31238167Nope. It's just exceptional-but-mundane equipment. Gossamer armor, though, is the shiznit, since it doesn't encumber or fatigue any more than normal clothing.
>>31238176It was a fucking awesome date.
Rolled 2>>31238159>Of course, let's celebrate our victory
>>31238196I'm going to assume it works somewhat differently in this system.
Rolled 10>>31238159>Of course, let's celebrate our victoryour wedding deserves a special occasion all to itself, we've got business to attend to before that, namely figuring out what to do with the Wyld, getting our ships and navy back to sea and bringing out pet fae with us back to Tianna to report our success and presumably bang Amata, Irene, Samiel, Tia and Silk all at the same time.we've also got that full day orgy with the water elementals to do in the future
>>31238196Oh well.Let's get him a Gossamer codpiece then. Even if he is a bit boring the boy's got some massive balls the deserve to be unencumbered.
Rolled 1>>31238159Seconding >>31238212Our wedding must be special, and it would be amiss of us to not fully and properly celebrate it in creation
Rolled 7>>31238159>Let's celebrate our victory>Later we should start planning our weddingPretty sure Maka would have grown up dreaming of a large state wedding. We can scale back since this isn't gem, but there sould still be festivities.
Rolled 4>>31238212>we've also got that full day orgy with the water elementals to do in the futureOh yeah, and we have to get Yaraon that sacrifice too
Rolled 3>>31238207Why? The whole point of gossamer is that it's not as good as a proper magical material. It's just speed-fabricated fae-stuff. If you assume anything, it should be that the armor doesn't have as big of bonuses, since Fatigue and Mobility penalties aren't a thing here.
>>31238212We can celebrate our ENGAGEMENT now, if we want.We're not married yet. The marriage is getting a proper ceremony.
Rolled 4>>31238159>Of course, let's celebrate our victoryAfter that we should thank everyone. Give the pirates some diamonds made from Gossamer, pat Silk on the head and get ourselves a suit of superheavy gossamer plate.
>>31238245It's still better than mundane stuff, which is all Sammy has access too.Tianna is very artefact-poor.
Rolled 4>>31238159>Of course, let's celebrate our victoryMaybe gently for a change, considering our wounds.
Rolled 7>>31238262>Tianna is very artefact-poor.For a decently-sized nation with a good amount of Dragonbloods, friendly (if covert) dealings with Solars, and 3(!) Lunar neighbours, it's downright incomprehensible.
Rolled 8>>31238262>Tianna is very artefact-poor.Yes. Even Samiel had to use a mundane sword. All they have is useless magitech crap>>31238264>Maybe gently for a changeThis. Let's see how gentle Tia can be.
Rolled 5>>31238262Kinda. It's basically just automatically exceptional. Gossamer is basically 'all weapons and armor made of this material are masterwork.'
>>31238283>a good amount of DragonbloodsWe've met what, three Terrestrials?
Rolled 7>>31238159>Someone removed your ragged sweater and put you in a light blue nightgownI'll mourn your passing naked sweater, we didn't even get it for a full fight either
Rolled 4>>31238159>Of course, let's celebrate our victory>>31238264Gently this time>>31238301I think there are supposed to be a dozen in various positions throughout Tianna
Rolled 7>>31238301There's at least one more we haven't met the admiral of Tianna's shipless navy
>>31238283its a city state, not a nation.
Rolled 9>>31238301Amata mentioned that there's a bit over a dozen other Dragonbloods (that they know of) in Tianna.We've really only met the royal family.And even then only like a third of them, though the rest aren't dragonblooded.
Rolled 10>>31238343>And even then only like a third of them, though the rest aren't dragonblooded.We haven't met the rest of the royal family?

>>31238347Irene (I think) mentioned how she had other siblings who didn't Exalt as DBs.
"Of course. Let's celebrate our victory." You reply, kissing her cheek.She seems surprised for a moment. "Our marriage?""Well, we... we're not married yet. We need, you know." You try and find the right words. "A proper ceremony. A party. All that. Make it official.""Oh... really? Marriage works like that?" She asks. This girl, really... "...hold on. All this time you had no idea what a marriage really is?""It's a special bond between two people." She replies, wrapping her arms around you. "Like what we have. We don't need a ceremony."You're not sure how to reply to that."I mean, we could. But you can have ceremonies with anyone." She touches her chest, where her heart is, and looks straight into your eyes. "What matters is here.">We're married then. No need for a ceremony.>We're married then.

Rolled 9>>31238476Sounds good to me.Hopefully we won't get that dress destroyed, either.
Rolled 4>>31238404>We're married then. But I still want a ceremony.We kind of need to keep reminding Tia that the whole Definition of our Exaltation is being a Charismatic public figure and people-person, in addition to the punching shit to death bit.We're all about the ceremony and splendour and showing ourselves off to people for the glory of Sol Invictus etc.
I hope we get artifacts soon or something like that
>>31238404>But I really want a ceremony to get married properly.We're engaged. We're promised to each other. That's different from formally being married.Plus we're really ostentatious and we want our party. We're a priestess, we can't have a marriage without a ceremony and vows and all that good stuff. Gotta swear our devotion in front of the Unconquered Sun and Luna and whatnot.
>>31238404Trying to weasel out of giving your bride her dream wedding is not a very good-husband thing to do, Tia.The bride gets what she wants.
"Well then, we're already married." You kiss her back. "But I still want a proper ceremony someday. With a cake and fancy dresses and so that everyone can see and know.""Promised." She grins, gently pulling the nightgown off you."...Please be gentle with me." "You make me SO hard when you say that..." her manic grin spreads as her breathing becomes faster and heavier."I'm not joking!" You grab her ear and pull her head sideways, eliciting a cry of pain and surprise from her. "I'm so full of cuts and wounds and sutures that you could play a game of Gateway on me.""Oh, I'm going to play with you alright." Is her reply, at which point you just give up on her.A few hours later, not without a bit of insistence (but, if it were for her, she'd have spent the entire day in bed with you), you leave the enormous bed and get dressed.Which mostly just means putting the blue nightgown back on.Then, you head out, and quickly find your bearings to the Throne room, Tia in tow.You find it... empty, except for Silk half-asleep, snoring on the throne."Uh..." you mumble, but even that light noise is enough to startle her back awake."I WASN'T SLEEPING- MAKA!" Again with the running, leaping tackles. At least Silk is soft. "You're awake! I wanted to come with you but Tia said she wanted to spend some time alone with you and that felt weird because she doesn't look like the kind of person who cares if there's anyone watching...""I... I thought Maka really needed some rest." Tia replies. "Where is everyone?""Attending to business or resting in separate rooms. Should I call them? We probably need to discuss things.">Call everyone>Call only (give a list of people)>I wanted to talk to you about something first (what?)Combined with>I like to be left alone when I'm with Tia>I don't mind people watching or joining>When I'm alone with Tia you can always join us

Rolled 10>>31238404>>31238569>But I really want a ceremony to get married properly.I want us to be under the midday sun on a day when the moon still hangs in the sky as we implore the Unconquered Sun and Luna to bless our union as their Chosen and Champions. It probably hasn't happened since the First Age, and I'd like to think they'd appreciate the deference. When can even lead in some worship of the sun once the vows have been exchanged.

Also, can you open a path that would allow Smoke and [name of plains god I can't remember] to visit here? They should be part of this discussion too.
Rolled 9>>31238569I'm imagining our wedding ceremony being like this, with the sun glowing brightly on one side and the full moon on the other, the only difference would be less barren wastelands, and timestamps

Rolled 1>>31238838I'm an Exalted newbie, I'm guessing the Incarne are the really big gods like The Unconquered Sun, Luna, and the Goddesses that empower the Sidereals?
>>31238880Yes. The Incarnae are the big head-honcho gods.We're gonna have to ask Conky and Luna to move their respective heavenly bodies around, which will likely involve filing a lot of request forms with heavenly bureaus.
>>31238654>Call everyone>I don't mind people watching or joining
"Well, don't worry, Silk. You're my pet, you can always join us in bed if you want to." You answer.Tia nods in appreciation. "The more the merrier~""But now call for everyone, please." You sit down on the steps that lead to the water pool in the middle of the room, and dip your feet in. The fast-flowing water is fresh and soothing."Alright." She says, but doesn't move from the throne."Uh, Silk?""Yes?""...Call them, please?"She blinks. "I am."You decide she's probably doing something weird, and resolve to just wait. You're rewarded by the arrival of almost everyone who played a part in the campaign, one by one, over the next few minutes: Samiel, all bandaged. Rubeni, Alexei and Quint, also sporting light wounds, and, it seems, still kind of drunk from whatever debauched celebrations they must've had with their mateys.Then you're surprised to see Yaraon, Dancing Smoke and Regis with them! Yaraon looks even more pissed and angry than usual, and Smoke is basically dragging him, holding his hand. Or, rather, clenching it in her own. Flow shows up not much later, dragging herself on the ground until she can reach the pool, where she dives in. Zaan is the last to come, explaining that Talon is still in bed resting his wounds."He seemed fine when I saw him." You note as you greet an overexcited Regis."His physical wounds are fine, but his mind suffered a lot of damage. I'm helping him to piece himself together, but it'll take some time. For now, however, he wants us to go on without him. I'll speak for the three rivers.""And I for Tianna."

Rolled 3How see through is the nightgown were wearing?
>>31239002Tia picked it out, so I'm assuming its basically invisible, but massively sexy
>>31239020We could always dip ourselves in the water so that it's clinging to us, as well.
>>31239025probably do this after the meeting. Tia'll jump us the second we do, and we have important things to talk about first
Rolled 5>>31238981Seconding this, in that order.
>>31238928>All the optionsWe need to hash this out today...but I'd say start by getting a casualty report from our pirates and Zaan (for the beast men legions), move onto asking Silk exactly what we won with this Wyld zone and how secure it is in her control, then end with the necessary discussion/negotiations.
Rolled 9>>31239002As see through as you want it to be I imagine, but we have dark skin so it doesn't need to be as sheer for things to be visible>>31239020>>31239025>>31239035I like the way the people in this thread think sometimes always.
Rolled 5>>31239045Forgot my in case roll.
>>31239061Man, Dark skin is awesome.
>>31239107Yes, yes it is.
As everyone settles down (except the Smoke-Yaraon couple being noisy), you ask: "Alright. Just to understand the point of the situation better, Silk, can we get a report on the Wyld?""Well, I have it all under control from here. I cleaned up the palace, rearranged the rooms, and so on. By the way, apart for your presence and your troops, it's undefended. Your call if you're alright with me rearming or not.""Can you leave this Wyld zone?""Sure. To keep it safe for everyone I'd have to either visit it about once a week to make sure no monsters or such are being created.""And to feed?" You ask back."The more time I spend here the more well-fed and powerful I'd be. But I'd say a day a week to be decent:" You reflect on it. "Can you make us things with Gossamer?""Something, sure. I have Tarien Dorian's gossamer stocks now. However, once they've been depleted, I'll be able to rebuild them only very slowly, since we weakened this Wyld area a lot. And even then, I'll have to stay here for a while. You want me to make something?">Yes (what?)>No, not for now.Combined with:>You can rearm and handle defense of this palace from outside threats on your own.

Rolled 9>>31239352That's what I mean yes
>>31239315>>31239268Nice.Also I totally think the Wedding should in addition to fancy dresses, involve removal of fancy dresses as part of the ceremony.Maybe coinciding with a dance offering to Sol Invictus/Luna.
Rolled 8>>31239268>>31239315Why do that when we can have Tia pick out a new outfit?
>>31239218>>31239343 here, forgot to link saying this was a vote

>>31239155Yeah I'm gonna have to vote for this >>31239488
Rolled 3>>31239488needs more tassels for more coverage, cause thats like 3 tassels per tit
Rolled 7>>31239488No thanks
>>31239585Unfortunately I'm on my phone. If I were home I'd offer up some pics just as sexy and much classier.
Rolled 5>>31239639I think Maka would be okay with that, but I was just looking for the style, not necessarily that exact Bikini
Rolled 6>>31239655No thanks on the picture or the outfit? Because I REALLY like the outfit, but realize that the picture (especially the breasts) may not be to some people's taste
"No, it's alright. Keep that Gossamer in stock. You can use a bit of that if you want and rearm yourself over the next days. I'd like my pet to have some fangs worthy of me."She nods. "Of course! Will do." The gods seem aghast at your statement, but you don't give them time to complain: you turn to Zaan and ask him: "What about your people?""We lost about thirty men. To be honest, we were prepared to lose a lot more. Tianna might not have realized, but this Wyld and Tarien Dorian's raids were a real nightmare to our people.""I know that Talon has some plans for the tribes.""He does. That's why he wants them to develop without any outside interference.""Can the barbarians and Tianna coexist?" Samiel asks, looking very serious."I know that Talon has no plans to expand or conquer, and he's a man who sticks to his word. We have an alliance now, so you have nothing to free. Our borders will stay unaltered to the south. Our people would like to have the plains north of Azure Lake, which were previously the Fae Prince's hunting grounds, for themselves, though, for hunting and grazing." As he says so he unveils a map of the island, with the changes in the western side freshly penned."I think everyone at this table agrees that this victory would have been impossible without you, Maka. If the gods would let you have it, the land we carved out of the Wyld is yours." He says. "With a few exceptions we'll have to discuss.""Exceptions?" You ask, trying to keep Tia from ranting about her fantasy kingdom of Makaland (a kingdom where everyone is Maka) too loudly.He nods. "Demesnes."(cont.)
Rolled 10>>31239717Aww come on, I thought we were split pretty evenly on the tassel bikini, you could have at least brought it up for later consideration
Rolled 3>>31239717Oh wow the wylds really shrunk
>>31239750We can worry about that later.Lewd fashion later, diplomancing now.
Rolled 1>>31239781>diplomancing now.damn, that other thing we do that isn't sex or violence
Rolled 1>>31239781Okay, as long as we consider it when next we pick an outfit then I'll let it go.
>>31239717Maybe some time in the future. We already have too many problems to worry about buildig a kingdom. The new lands can be divided evenly between Yaraon, Tianna and the Tribes. We only ask that the two demenses closest to Tianna be reserved for Tianna's use. Irene wants manses.
Rolled 9>>31239488I have no problems with the outfit, but i have problems with using gossamer to make it. Just stick with mundane materials.However, i vote to re-making the tablard that we lost previously. It can be remade BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER. SHORTER, SMALLER and EVEN MORE SHEER! And resistant to battle damage.
>>31239807Well, we can claim some land at least. It's uninhibited and Silk is self-managing.Really what we want to claim is the Islands surrounding the big main island.Lots of free land with no pre existing claims or disputable borders.
>>31239851*UninhabitedThough Maka is pretty uninhibited, yes. Maybe our subjects will emulate that and start a population boom.
Rolled 5>>31239819I wanted to make it out of gossamer because it's so small it would fall apart if someone looked at it funny if it was made out of normal materials
Rolled 3>>31239717Any good area for a temple for UCS?
>>31239873Well, since odds are good we're going to pop out a litter of Beastman babies in nine months or so since Tia's not been careful at all...
"Oh." You didn't think about that. "Did some new demesnes spring up in the terrain we carved out of the Wyld?""They have." He nods. "The gods have located them while taking control of their new land and of course, well, we have to decide what to do with them." He explains, moving some colored pebbles around on the map."Those are the demesnes?" You ask."Roughly arranged, yes. Well, more pebbles mean a stronger demesne. Black for mainly water-aspected, white for mainly earth, green for mainly wood, red for mainly fire. We were waiting for you to discuss this.""Of course, both Tianna and the Three Rivers want them." Samiel explains matter-of-factly. "And I guess you, too. We can help building Manses over them, in exchange.">Discuss which demesnes to claim for your own, which to leave to whom>Do not press claims on any demesne>Press claims on all demesnes>Let's not discuss this now and change subject (to what?)
Rolled 10>>31239874Silk for tassels, silk rope for strings. How is it going to fall apart?
Rolled 1>>31239819I'm an Exalted newb so I'm not sure how gossamer works, but this >>31239488 is basically less than a dozen strips strips of cloth and two or three pieces of string. Would it really be so hard to make both?
>>31239807Nah. Plus, we might be able to use our tiger warrior training technique as a bargaining tool
Rolled 1>>31239920>Discuss which demesnes to claim for your own, which to leave to whomI'm liking the 2 pebble water-aspected on the island, but I'm an exalted noob
>>31239920We take the 3-dot water demesne directly to the south.Tianna the fire and wood demesnes south of the river. And the Three Rivers claim the rest.That's 3 Dots for us, 5 for Tianna and 6 total for the Lunars.
Rolled 9>>31239928In battle like all of our other clothes? We haven't exactly been kind to our wardrobe.>>31239920>Discuss which demesnes to claim for your own, which to leave to whom
Rolled 8>>312399207 manses? Quite a bit.>Let's not discuss this now and change subject (to what?)Best way to solve this fair and equitably is to cap them all, see what hearthstones come up, then have each side bid for them.
>>31239920>Three-dot Fire-aspected ManseThat can be Samiel and Smoke's new home.
>>31239963It's not random, you know. You can design manses to give you specific hearthstones. Heck you can even design manses to change the aspect of the demesne, turn it from Water to Fire or something.
>>31239920>Do not press claims on any demesneHonestly, we can probably ask for one out of the ones given to Tianna. Not that big a deal. Better to smooth things over between the Three Rivers and Tianna without getting greedy. Make sure both sides get what they want, then collect a small 'finder's fee' from one or both.
Rolled 9>>31239959Crap I missed that they had been put on the map, but >>31239958 sounds like a good distribution
Rolled 1>>31239959Exactly, the tablard is an outfit that we might actually use in battle as a 'priestly' outfit. The tassel bikini not so much, hence lower odds of damage from battle. Bedroom antics not included in risk assessment.
>>31239920>>31239920Hm. The two- and -three star water demented on the coast would be good for us.The deme des in Three rivers territory are weaker though, and they did bear the brunt of a lot of the war. Diplomatically we don't want to give too much favour to Tianna given their pretty small contribution to this conflict, but we do want to engender future goodwill too.I say keep the 2biggest waters for ourselves. The northern three for 3rivers, and the southern two for Tianna, if everyone's agreeable to that at least.
>>31239982I was about to ask if Irene is an architecht and new how to do that sort of thing, but judging from the last thread Tia is an architect.What does she know about manse-building? We know she works wonders with corpses, proper building materials should work even better.
Rolled 7>>31239958This sounds good, but maybe someone that's played more Exalted can tell me, what can we use the manses for, like us personally
>>31239958This looks reasonable to me.
Rolled 8>>31239920>Discuss which demesnes to claim for your own, which to leave to whomWe want to try for that three-dot water one next to the marsh at the very least. Considering the fact that we have Silk on the throne, we have the most solid claim to it. Everything else is 100% negotiable, but we would obviously prefer more if we can get it.
>>31240015The main purpose of manses is they produce channel the essence produced by the demesne which then gets funnelled to us.The secondary purpose is the hearthstone, which is how we actually get the Essence (by keeping the hearthstone with us). Hearthstones also have their own little neat effects.
Rolled 4>>31239982Wait, i assumed that Irene will be doing the capping, and DB manse engineering is subject to randomness due to skill loss and lack of solar craft and sorcery. Even if it weren't, i don't think anyone has a copy of Oadenol's Codex (the artifact) lying around. So picking and choosing would be a dubious proposition.
Rolled 2>>31240000I want to wear the tassels into battle, that's why I want them made of gossamer, was I not communicating that clearly? Also I'm indifferent to the tabbard.
>>31239819>>31239750>>31239488If clothes are an issue, I suggest pic related. Still easy to remove for our sexy dancing prayers, but regal enough to hold court in.
Rolled 4Gentlemen, what do you think about an outfit like pic, but in our colours.
>>31239920Discuss which demesnes to claim for your own, which to leave to whomMention our training charm and how we'd be willing to help them out with their troops, in return for consideration
>>31240062>KuroInuNo. We're not dressing up like queen rapebait.
>>31239982Or change them to other, less terrestrial aspects. Unfortunately Maka knows none of this.
Rolled 8>>31240044How does the element of the demense affect us, dose that matter to us at all?
Rolled 10>>31240057I'm against wearing metal armor with this character for some reason>>31240062Pretty good, would be a good choice if I can't have >>31239488
Rolled 3>>31240053Then we have a disagreement. I'm in favor of your suggested outfit OFF the battlefield, and out of daily life altogether. Only in certain (read: lewd) situations is that thing coming out of the wardrobe.The talbard is something that can be used day to day.
>>31240087It determines the kinds of powers a Manse can have, the kind of Hearthstone it can create, and the ease of attuning to it. For Maka? None of that particularly matters.
Rolled 4>>31240081well if anything, we'd be the bait for thing that Tia can rape
Rolled 6>>31240053I'm just not a fan of the tassels at all, it goes past lewd to straight up hooker slut, that's not the image I want Maka to have
Rolled 2>>31240057Are we suggesting armour now? Cause i have a ton of impratical armour images.
>>31240091>I'm against wearing metal armor with this character for some reasonThen is this more to your liking? Add a little more gold trim and it'd be perfect.
Are we elementally aligned?as an Exalted newbie, I have no clue if we'd have a preference on what sort of stuff to claim due to natural alignment.Though, I wonder if we couldn't have Silk build some sort of 'port' for our pirates to vanish into, should it be required. If Fae enjoy getting baubles from Creation, that is.
Rolled 5>>31240145>>31240196How about we talk about this after this session is done
Rolled 9>>31240099You relize the tabbard isn't much more modest all things considered right? We're more endowed than the girl in the picture so we flash everyone everything when they aren't directly in front of or behind us,>>31240128I think they're fine, but I respect your opinion. Also I really want to do a prayer dance in them>>31240145I like that, even though I'm not really a fan of Maka wearing armor>>31240196I actually liked the previous one more
>>31240145I think we're going to try to stick with the slutty priestess look.
>>31240213samefag hereAnd what -is- a demesnes? some sort of elemental energy tap?I'd also like to request an old map be posted, as the archived threads seem to be having issues loading on my end. I'd like to be able to see just how much we shrank the Wyld and what we're being given if the gods allow it, please.
Rolled 1>>31239920I suggest we divide this whole thing up like this:Red for Tianna, Green and White for the Lunars and Black for our own, and we rent our Demesnes keeping only one for ourselves, whit the caveat that all demesnes and Manses should be used in a council like fashion for things regarding Island/Archipelago scale things of concerns, from defense to infrastructure.
Social + Zenith = 10 1 1 9 8 9 1 = 5 successesNegotiations go back-and-forth for a bit.It seems like, of course, everyone is more interested in the demesnes closer to their own territory. Zaan wants the northern two demesnes, and would like the one in the lake, while Samiel asks for the fire one, and would like the southern wood one in addition.The island has been claimed by Flow as a sacred ground, and they say that she'd be willing to let you use it provided that a manse is built keeping the water aspect, and in the shape of a temple to them. >Keep the lake demesne for your own>Leave the lake demesne to the Three Riverscombined with:>Keep the southern forest demesne for your own>Leave the southern forest demesne to Tiannacombined with:>Agree to Flow's deal>Reject Flow's deal
Rolled 8>>31240367>Leave the lake demesne to the Three Rivers>Leave the southern forest demesne to TiannaWhat will the temple to the elements give them?
Rolled 1>>31240367>Leave the lake demesne to the Three Rivers>Leave the southern forest demesne to Tianna>Agree to Flow's deal
Rolled 1>>31240355>>31240213We're a Solar, so we have no elemental alignment. A Demense is a natural phenomenon where a bunch of essence concentrates in one area, making it overflowing with, well, essence. A Manse is a building used to cap a Demense. A Manse is usually some type of workshop/temple/fortress. The person attuned to a Manse enjoys MASSIVE essence regen while in it, based on its rating, as well as getting a Hearthstone that provides 1/2 that benefit, plus a minor magical perk as long as it's carried. Most Manses also have neat magical functions powered by the local essence, which vary wildly depending on the designer and the intended function.Does that help?>>31240367Concede to both the Three Rivers and Tianna, and agree to the compromise with Flow. That gives us two Water Aspected Demenses, one a rating 2 and one a rating 3. That's VERY solid.
>>31240367>Leave the lake demesne to the Three Rivers>Leave the southern forest demesne to Tianna>Agree to Flow's dealActually a pretty sweet deal for Maka. I guess Tia can use a future hearthstone from our stock instead of the Three Rivers'.>>31240402Sweet, sweet ambrosia if the temple gets them more prayer.
Rolled 6>>31240255Or we could go with slutty form hugging segmentata....No need we cant be a bit practical and a wee bit less buck naked, so that when we fight we don't loose all the clothes and remain naked but in tatters with strategical gashes and rips in our covers.On has to thing of how we get progressively hotter during combat. And easily destroyed garments means that we get naked from the first exchange of fire and blows, wearing out the novelty of our form after a time.Plus its going to be distracting during Tiger Training.
Rolled 9>>31240367>Keep the lake demesne for your own>Leave the southern forest demesne to Tianna>Agree to Flow's deal
Rolled 5>>31240367I'm fine with leaving both the lake demesne and the southern forest demesnes to the others, but it should very clear how magnanimous a gesture this is. We did a hell of a lot of the work and are keeping almost nothing for ourself. We're doing this because we are a generous and magnanimous queen who appreciates her allies, not because we're a pushover.Flow's offer is kind of pushing it, considering that's the one manse we actually want. I'd prefer to build it as a temple to the Unconquered Sun rather than to her.
>>31240355>And what -is- a demesnes?A 'Demense' is an area of creation with an excess of magical energy (or 'Essence') that builds up in an uncontrolled manner and produces magical effects. They can be 'capped' to control them, to prevent magical explosions, random mutations, and unnatural disasters. Doing so involves constructing a 'Manse', a magical structure that evens out the flows and regulates them, venting the essence harmlessly into desired magical effects and allowing Exalts to tap into them as a source of near-limitless power. They can also power larger more powerful artifacts and magi-technology.
Rolled 4>>31240367seconding >>31240441I'd like the small lake one for ourselves, the southern wood one can be Tianna's, Irene can use it for her defenses, and Flow's terms are good and fair

Rolled 8>>31240447>We did a hell of a lot of the work and are keeping almost nothing for ourselfWe'd get the smallest share if we kept the lake one for ourselves, which is only fair seeing as we did a majority of the work, I don't see why we shouldn't get one for ourselves.>>31240367Thirding >>31240441
>>31240368Thank you and holy shit.>>31240367>Lake demesneTempted to see if Tia can claim it herself, so that it is both part of Three Rivers and, through our bond with Tia, also part of Tianna. A symbol of the 'bridge' that is the Three Rivers/Tianna alliance, if it were. It would effectively be Three Rivers owned, but Tianna could make use of the power from it from time to time, if we can convince Tia.>Leave southern forest to Tianna>Agree to Flow's dealI believe that would constitute a fair chunk of our agreement for Flow's assistance?
Rolled 6>>31240489>We'd get the smallest share if we kept the lake one for ourselves, which is only fair seeing as we did a majority of the work, I don't see why we shouldn't get one for ourselves.We're keeping the three-dot manse on the island, not the one-dot manse in the lake.
>>31240433technically, we want at least 3.1 for us, 1 for our wife, and 1 one dot manse for silk.
Rolled 10>>31240505>We're keeping the three-dot manse on the island, not the one-dot manse in the lake.uhh look at the map again bro, no 3 dot one on the island, and the island is flow's
Rolled 1>Keep the lake demesne for your own>Keep the southern forest demesne for your own>Agree to Flow's dealSuggest that the two demesne in contention, lake and southern forest as well as the island one be used in combination for Island level defense and infrastructure and under a unified allied command. This way we don't get to much dissension and a unifying presence on the whole thing that we are in loop of while at the same time being seen in a good light as we bait all of them into cooperation.I man come on this is the obvious conclusion of a keen social and political mind of somone like Maka. We are zenith after all and politics is our bread and butter.
Rolled 2>>31240517Pretty sure he means the one directly below the wylds
Rolled 5>>31240496>Tempted to see if Tia can claim it herself, so that it is both part of Three Rivers and, through our bond with Tia, also part of Tianna. A symbol of the 'bridge' that is the Three Rivers/Tianna alliance, if it were. It would effectively be Three Rivers owned, but Tianna could make use of the power from it from time to time, if we can convince Tia.thats an interesting idea, if we don't get the lake for ourselves, we should propose that>>31240505theres only 2 3 dot demanses, and neither of them is on the island...
Rolled 4>>31240367>Keep the lake demesne for your own>Leave the southern forest demesne to Tianna>Agree to Flow's deal
Rolled 1>>31240510Can Silk use the manse?
Rolled 10>>31240537I'm not seeing anything in EF's post that talks about that so I've no idea who gets that
Rolled 8>>31240464>>31240434But imagine the gradual sheer...Kind of like striptease. Instead of just jumping out of a towel buck naked.
Rolled 4>>31240537if we do get that (i'm not seeing where it says that we do), then I don't mind giving the lake one up, or using >>31240496 's idea
>>31240552sort of. She can use one to not die in creation. There are a few other options (which are better), and I don't know if she has those
Rolled 1>>31240554Look at the map in this post >>31239920
Rolled 7>>31240554It's the one everyone really wanted us to get, and since he didn't mention it going to anyone else I assume we got it
Rolled 1>>31240539>>31240517Whoops, got confused. I meant the one immediately south of the Wyld swamps.Since it's right next to Silk's domain, and we have the best relations with her.She can do what she likes with the two-dot one on the island, I suppose. If she wants to let us use it in exchange for building a temple to her, that's fine.
Rolled 3>>31240583that says we might get some, says nothing about that specific demanse...
Rolled 2>>31240583The map does not say anything about who gets it dude.
Rolled 5>>31240560Our character is basically an exhibitionist, but since we can't just walk around naked I'll the time, I'm instead aiming for as high a percentage of the time as possible
>>31240560>Toph>Eyes focused on target
Rolled 7>>31240521So this means that in essence, Tianna gets the Red one,Three Rivers get the the green and white upper ones,and We get the three dot black one,While all the others are going to be used via council and the island one is going to be a water temple.Another option would be to agree to Flows deal and claim both the two in contention, while then renting two demesnes each to the others since at the moment we dont really have anything to do with them.This way they get a bigger boost short term to set themselves up, and we stipulate that we will continue to rent one for each but reclaim two eventually when we have something to do with them.This way we unite the Island but at the same time get a bigger control in the island manse power output.Imho, i prefer my alteration on the plan but eh, manse power is going to be the one thing that the islanders will have to bicker about and if we control the largest part of them we can arbitrate between them and help them out on unifying projects.
Rolled 5>>31240605THE MAP, NOT THE POST, THE PICTURE ATTACHED TO ITThere is a 3 dot water demanse, it was not mention as going to someone else here >>31240367, ergo, it is safe to assume we got it as that is the one everyone was asking for>>31239958>>31239992>>31240015>>31240017
Rolled 8>>31240640>So this means that in essence,>Tianna gets the Red one,>Three Rivers get the the green and white upper ones,>and We get the three dot black one,I think Tianna also gets the two-dot green one toward the south? Although we don't know of any Wood Aspects who'd get really good use out of it.Maybe realign it toward Earth and give it to Irene, or realign it towards Air and give it to Amata?Amata's an Air Aspect, right?
Rolled 6>>31240367Lets do this:>>31240640

Rolled 1>>31240655>it is safe to assume...It is never safe to assume.
>>31240675Samfaging for clarification:>Another option would be to agree to Flows deal and claim both the two in contention, while then renting two demesnes each to the others since at the moment we dont really have anything to do with them.>This way they get a bigger boost short term to set themselves up, and we stipulate that we will continue to rent one for each but reclaim two eventually when we have something to do with them.>This way we unite the Island but at the same time get a bigger control in the island manse power output.>Imho, i prefer my alteration on the plan but eh, manse power is going to be the one thing that the islanders will have to bicker about and if we control the largest part of them we can arbitrate between them and help them out on unifying projects.>>31240657They are trying to but honestly we have more of a claim to it than Tianna. Tianna gets more than enough through the red one. And if we manage to rent say one or two to them for some tome its more than they ever hoped and far more then they have invested and have a claim to.The Lunars on the other hand have a better claim to three demenses, but we could get it via Tia, although i would rather not since it would strain her relationship with the Three Rivers, since in essence it would unravel them, as we see Tias tendency to opt for Maka whenever presented a choice, and we do not want to break up the Three Rivers or loose our best agent there, namely Tia.Thus i would rather fight hard o get all four we can possibly get and then rent them out. Which in essence gives far more temporary power to Tianna and the Three Rivers. And then we stipulate that at least one for each , namely the ones they wanted will have to be rented to them and probably at a discount for the Three Rivers on the one in the lake, essentially buying our 50% stake in it every month or so.Seriously people think in terms of power company monopole, do not losse any of them unless we absolutely have to.
You concede to both the Three Rivers' and Tianna's requests, though you would have liked to keep that lake demesne. After agreeing to Flow's deal as well, an idea strikes you."Hey, Tia." You suggest your Lunar mate." Maybe you could have that demesne, as a member of the Three Rivers?""Uh? Why?" She asks back.That question laves you confused for a moment. "...What do you mean?""I'm not staying in the Three Rivers. I'm coming with you." She replies.Zaan sighs. "...yeah, I thought so."You turn back to Tia, with a puzzled look.She shrugs. "I've been tagging along with them waiting for my chance to find you.""Yeah, Tia didn't seem very interested in the barbarian tribes, or in Talon's project." The other lunar explains. "She was helpful in many ways, but always made it very clear to us that she was just passing through." He grins. "I guess she's your problem now.""Because... Well, unless we go live in the north of the island, it doesn't make sense for me to stay." She notes. "Besides, you are going to make a Makaland here now, right? I'll be at your side.""Are you?" Samiel asks back, detecting your doubts."You did talk about that, but you didn't make any definite plans." Quint notes. "You remember, right? You said you were going to carve a kingdom for yourself in the West.""...But isn't there your hometown, too, Maka? What about that?" Tia pressures you.Well, everyone is here. Except Amata, unfortunately, but Samiel can speak for her, you hope. It's time you make a choice for the future.(cont.)

Rolled 9>>31240855right, thanks for clarifying
>>31240682Anon from over here:>>31240752Why not? Think about the critical part Manses play in the Essence infrastructure of Creation. They are essentially the power plants of said civilization.Us owning them and then renting them out, even loaning them for no cost at all is better than loosing one of them since we wont be using them for a long time. We do not have the knowledge or resources to make them into the powerhouses solar Twilights or Eclipses could do, but we can claim them and then give their services to the others and in case we need them all we can reclaim their use for short periods of time without to much disturbance.In essence both Tianna and the Three Rivers get more Manse power that endures and we get more Burst power if we use them as weapons or something. Our goal is to unify the island, and this is our windfall to do it. Controlling 50%+1 of this manse power output.This in essence would mean that we can tip the scales in any vote regarding the usage of island essence since we control more than a sixth of the power output assuming the other three parts have similar capacity.Your monosyllabic answer does not give me any argument to the contrary of my somewhat reasoned power control policy.Seriously we are a Social Zenith, we are not going to use said Manses of industrial output. But far better to get as many of them as possible and then loan them out to the other two parties to amass constant political capital.Laving them to Tianna and Three rivers will not ensure the same degree of political control on their decision, and will promote isolationist trends.Whit us in control however of all four manses, we can ensure their usage is for Tianna and Three rivers but that we can nudge them towards unification or weather we want to nudge them into.
Rolled 4Gentlemen, what do you think about having a city built but be part of Tianna, but be OUR city?
>I will have a city built in my land here, as the starting point of a new nation.
>>31240766FUCK!!!!!!!!!There goes our chance for uniting the island.And all those Demenses lost because of people not understanding politics and economics.
>>31240881Monosyllabic answer is faster, and however articulate you are, speedy delivery is more important in the end than well thought out counterarguments.
>>31240881Manses and Exalted politics do not work like that.
>>31240907Not necessarily. We have beaten the fae, and after we deal with Abyssals and Lintha we can take hold of the kingdom through marriage.I would like to angle for that route.
>>31240402>>31240425>>31240433>>31240463>Leave the lake demesne to the Three Rivers>Leave the southern forest demesne to TiannaCan you please reason out your decision to willingly relent power to others, especially Tiann who did nothing, except Samiel and he already got a very powerful one?Considering the superior option to lend them once we have claimed them, and through that be able to exert constant pressure and control?Pleas do explain for I am baffled at your though process.Seriously considering its Social And Zenith we could have easily claimed them and gotten them without any ill feelings on the parts of the others. Would you explain why you left loot to others when we could have gotten far more good will via the alternate plan?
>>31240805>I want to speak to Amata before I decide.I'm still waiting for my faith to be rewarded.
>>31240805>I have every intention to carve a kingdom for myself in the West, though not starting with the island of Tianna.>I want to speak to Amata before I decide.And if she okays it:>I will have a city built in my land here, but it will be part of the kingdom of Tianna.We'd be in charge of the city, but it exists as a part of her kingdom.We're not going to start carving out chunks of her island for ourself.
>>31240945Irrelevant. I was said in the early threads that a Manse can power up a gun or a Essence cannon or whatever via a relay gem or whatever. Said feature enables us a similar usage making the analogy of manse usage with power plants correct. The fact that they can only occur naturally and then be later enhanced and not created makes control of them even more relevant.Of course Exalted politics are far more complex than that but it would have given us a considerable vector through witch to exert influence.
>>31240962Remember those sex charms we discussed?Tianna is under constant threat currently. They need a demesne for their city's defenses. Also, why make a kingdom when there is a perfectly fine kingdom already for the taking here?
>>31240805>I am undecided as of yet.We do not need a dock and port since we take over the pirate town once we return and the other ships. And then talk to Amata and perhaps try and create a Tianna Federation that will take over the Western Archipelagos.But we should get back to pirate town and take over ships andthe town...That and loot. The loot from the fae for our pirates and our war chest and the gold from the Behemoth we punched and then have planted in the earth.
>>31241003...Are you telling the questrunner that his own rulings are irrelevant in his quest?Are you retarded or something?
>>31241044Loaning out the manses would have gotten the same result.As for taking over a lot of us do not want to dethrone Amata.
>>31240989Same. Kinda depressed that it doesn't appear to be valid.
Rolled 8>>31240898I do kinda like this idea, it'll give us a staging point for when we leave for Gem, but if it's part of Tianna's kingdom we won't be leaving it unruled when we do leave
>>31241090Honestly, I'm waiting for the 3rd option thing that OP implied way back in session 8.
Rolled 8>>31241044>Also, why make a kingdom when there is a perfectly fine kingdom already for the taking here?Because we're not taking Tianna and Amata is a friend and lover you retard
>>31241126What third option?
>>31241103I say we make a Haslanti League expy here on Tianna. There is no point in us becoming vassals to Amata or viceversa.Between our married pair and fleet, Amatas Dynasty and the Three Rivers we could make that happen, and be collectively fare more potent a force than others.All the federation talk from the previous threads would be for nothing if we become vassals or take over Tianna.There is a third choice.
>>31241157That's a fairly decent idea.I'm still for making our proper kingdom over on some other island and keeping close diplomatic relations with Tianna (the kingdom) and the Three Rivers though.
>>31241156Unite the island Haslanti League Style but with exalts.Kind of like >>31241157 wants.And then go on and become rulers of the seas a la Britannia with ushering in the age of sail and rampant profiteering, exploration, trading and piracy.
>>31241156The whole "abandon our friends or abandon our past" thing. People complained about how they didn't have a closer option, then were told "Have a bit more faith in your QM."
>>31241090Not dethrone, but merely take a split of the responsibilities of ruling. As a Queen of Tianna, we can be the kingdom's general and public speaker while Amata can take care of things like economics and trade. It would be a win for both of us.
>>31241227...No. We're not usurping Amata's throne.
"I want to talk to Queen Amata before I take a decision." You reply. "Which should be as soon as possible, because Tianna is still under Abyssal threat."Zaan nods. "As promised, I will give you my full help. Talon, too, as soon as he'll be back on his feet. Until that happens, can we stay in here? Being in a controlled Wyld environment is going to be a great help in putting him back together."You exchange a glance with Silk, and you both nod. "Yes, of course. Just... let's keep in touch. In case something happens.""Maka." Rubel Sareni stands up. "We should discuss compensation for our men as well."You nod. "Of course." "Our men have, well, being looting the battlefield. It's how they operate, and Tarien Dorian's forces, being from the Wyld, had some interesting stuff. Rare woods, jewels, exotic weapons.""Oh!" You're reminded. "Also the first Behemoth we destroyed had a massive gold chain.""WAY ahead of you." He grins. "Although it was not pure gold, but more like composed by rock with a lot of gold inclusions."You clench your fist, trying to remember the sensation it left in your hands. "...It DID feel more rock-like than metal-like, now that you remind me.""Anyway, yes, we took that too, split it among the crews, paid for the wounded and set aside the dues for the dead who had family back in Freeport.""All that money is going to seriously upset the economy." You voice your worries, and that's when all three captains grin. "Yes, that's why we're not going to spend all of it there. We consulted while you were sleeping, and came up with a plan. After paying the men, we'd like to buy some better weapons and equipment, and some other ships, and recruit new men, around the Wavecrest archipelago."(cont.)
Rolled 3>>31241284Wonderful, let's go upset someone else's economy instead. Maybe some lintha controlled ports or something...just a suggestion.
Quint steps forward. "Let's be frank, boss. You're a genius at land strategy and you can punch out giant monsters, but you don't have a lot of experience in handling a navy yet, that much is clear. If you'll let us use that money on our own, and leave us off the hook for a month or so, we're going to give you one of the best navies money can buy. 'Course, it would be up to you here on land to find us a port and the supplies we'd need, but I think it's going to be easy for someone like you.">Don't make this kind of plans without consulting me.>Agreed. Good luck and good work. I'll wait for you in one month.>Good plan, but one month is too much. I'll leave you two weeks.>Other?

Rolled 4>>31241520A few points in Eclipse and we'll be better than trained captains, we could use eclipse too, what with it having Socialize and Bureaucracy
>>31241560I just meant that it makes sense that we don't know sea strategy and logistics yet, considering prior to coming to Tianna we'd probably never seen so much as a lake in our entire life.
Rolled 7>>31241581Oh yeah, of course
>>31241347 >Agreed. But first i would like to train you three and the crews for a while, so that if something happens you are more than able to tackle unexpected problems regarding punching things without me.Lets give them Tiger Warriors before we let them sail of on a major recruitment drive.No need to have our veteran core attrition due to bar fights and such.
"I guess it can work. I like your initiative. But, first..." You explain to them. "...I'd like you three to wait a while before leaving. You're right, I'm not really an expert in ship-to-ship combat, but I AM pretty good in personal combat, and I'm a good teacher. I think I can give you a few pointers." You explain.They look at each other. "Well, we weren't thinking about leaving immediately. The men need their rest, they've earned it. You know, booze and whores and all that. A week?"You nod. "A week is fine. Leave your men to your first officers. You three will stay with me for this week, and I'll train you.""...In bed." Tia finishes your sentence. You karate chop her."Well, that about fi-" You notice that, now that there's a little lull in the discussion, Smoke and (being dragged) Yaraon are approaching you. "Uh, yes?""I wanted to give you my congratulations for this victory!" Smoke seems very energetic today."Uh, thanks. And yes, I didn't forget about my promise.""I know you didn't! I wanted to tell you that since everyone here agreed to leave the new territory we took from the Wyld to you, you'll have the honor to deal with a new god soon!""New god?" You're a bit confused. "I thought Yaraon was going to take control of the land.""I am." He replies, staring at his shoes. "But, well... I am a plains god. If you're going to build a city...""Oh, it's not sure yet.""But if you will, I can't be its god as well.""And that's why we'll soon have a new god for you!" Something is a bit wrong with how cheerful Smoke is, and finally the gears in your brain click together."...Is Yaraon pregnant."The two of them nod, albeit with very different levels of enthusiasm.You sigh.(cont.)

After organizing the last details, you're almost ready to leave.You'll have to return to Tianna, and there's a limit to how many people Tia can carry, so you'll have to use the Bloodshark, on a skeleton crew, while the other two ships and most of the crew will be in Freeport for some well-earned relax and partying. Samiel will be returning with you and Tia, as well as all three captains, Regis, and Dancing Smoke (who doesn't NEED to come with you by ship, but will stick around nonetheless).There's only one thing left: you can't go back to Tianna in a pajama.And Tia's requests and suggestions have been even more perverted than usual, lately. You don't have a problem wearing the kind of stuff she asks you to in the bedroom, but some of it might be inappropriate for the court, and not having that right "victorious Solar returning" vibe.Fortunately, you have Silk at your disposal. You still haven't decided if she should stay here or head back with you, but for now, she could make you some clothes a bit more resistant to battle damage than what you've been wearing up to now.>Ask for a Gossamer version of a previous outfit (which?)>Ask for a new outfit (what kind of outfit? post pics or link to them if they were posted previously)
Rolled 5>>31241774This one >>31239488
Rolled 7>>31241774>Ask for a Gossamer version of a previous outfit (which?)Let's get our Tabard back
>>31241774>>Ask for a Gossamer version of a previous outfit (which?)The gold-trimmed tabard. Maybe spice it up with some diaphanous translucent veils brushing our hips as we walk, some glittering gem-studded tassels shimmering at the ends. That sounds nice. Those will look really good swishing around as we dance.
Rolled 3>>31241774>Ask for a Gossamer version of a previous outfitTalbard.
>>31241774>Ask for a Gossamer version of a previous outfit (which?)Tabard.
>>31241798Agreed, but have it made more solar-y.
Rolled 4>>31241826Oh yes, more gold and suns are a must
>>31241774What about a gossamer version of pic, but with the corset bit going more into a tabard instead of underwear? I recall someone mentioning that a lack of underwear should be some kind of overlooked continuity for Maka's outfits.
>>31241788This one, made of gossamer.I'm going to try to find a less nsfw picture of it too
>>31240057this >>31240145Counts as gossamer breastplate.
Rolled 7>>31241774Huh, while i already voted tabard, i was wondering if we can get a spare set of clothes?The dress from the OP picture, as a backup and just so that we actually have something like it.
>>31241838Oh, that's nice
Rolled 6>>31241774the tassel bikini >>31239488
Rolled 1>>31241838Oh, I like this.
>>31241774>Ask for a Gossamer version of a previous outfitour first outfit
Rolled 2>>31241838I'm okay with this or the tabard actually
>>31241774considering we want to do TWTTSomething like this or Mulans outfit but with gold shit and sun symbols.We really need something martial to emphasize our martial prowess and victory over the wyld and ensure the population of our imminent victory over the Abyssals.
Rolled 5>>31241839Dude, with an outfit like that isn't it a bit of a futile endeavor?
Rolled 3>>31241788I'm still really against this though
Rolled 6>>31241774Agree with this.
Rolled 2>>31241893Boo, get off the stage. You don't get the finer points of dressing up for the part.
>>31241826Here.>>31241838A solar version of the Ragnarok Online monk, eh? Sure why not.
>>31241894I was hoping to find one that wasn't being worn, but this was the closest I could find, basically remove the second layer and make the bottom also tassels
>>31241962I like it, do it
>>31241838works for me
>>31241838On board with this.
>>31241774>>Ask for a Gossamer version of a previous outfit (which?)I liked our tabard
>>31239488>>31241962I like these

>>31241838this or the tabard
Gossamer is really an incredible substance. You're not even sure WHAT it looks like: Silk is handling, before your eyes, a shapeless amount of a substance that hangs on her slimy hands like a multicolored cloud of crystallized dreams, from which sometimes a flash of light shoots, like a spark from iron struck by a hammer. As she gently moves the hand over your naked body, the substance takes shape, form, texture and reality, but always as an absolutely fine, perfect material with no apparent earthly flaws or imperfections.And, of course, Tia is "helping out.""First of all, start with a corset." You order Silk. "Leather. Make it short - no, a bit shorter on the sides. Gold border. It should tie up.""Come on, Maka." Tia interjects. "it's not like you need a push-up anything. They stay up on their own, my babies." She ponders with a pensive "hmm". "...hey, Silk, make it a bit smaller so that she almost spills out... yesss... like that.""...You don't have to listen to her, you know." You complain, but your little pet is apparently enjoying this like some sort of game. "Then, mhh, like that tabard, you remember, Tia? What do you think?"Tia instructs her. "Use white silk with a gold border, and red gems hanging from it. Make it come down, but it has to be just barely long enough to cover her.""Hey!" You complain."What? This one is hanging from the corset. With your old tabard, hanging from the breasts, it was basically flapping half meter away from your body. This covers a lot more, so leave me some space.""Leave *YOU* some-""Oh, also put a long hole in it. Maka's navel and abs are a miracle of the universe and everyone needs to see them. Yes, like that, that's good."You roll your eyes. "And for the rest...""For the rest, a cape, jewelry and nothing else." Tia interrupts you.That's where the fight starts.(cont.)
>>31242160That is delightfully meta
Rolled 1>>31242160>Maka's navel and abs are a miracle of the universe and everyone needs to see them. Yes, like that, that's good."Tia you are the miracle
After a few hours of arguing back and forth and making poor Silk waste way more gossamer than you at first thought, you end up not with one, but with various outfits.One is an almost perfect copy of your older tabard, and one is an open jacket with a leather corset that covers up a bit more. One is a mix between the two, with a smaller corset and no jacket.One is a tassel bikini. You blame Tia for that.At the end of the designing ordeal, as you keep Tia at arm's length from you until she calms down and stops trying to lick your navel, you consider if you want to bring Silk along with you to Tianna or you'd rather keep her here to rebuild er gossamer stocks.>She comes with us.>She stays here.
Rolled 7>>31242277>She comes with us.
>>31242160>She stays here.Tell her to come to us once she is done.
>>31242277>She stays here.The gossamer makes an excuse to visit!
Rolled 1>>31242277>She stays here.tell her to visit us regularly
>>31242277She's got business to take care of. Invite her to all the ceremonies and leave her to it.
Rolled 7>>31242277>She stays here.We'll come get her laterIf I remember right the people of Tianna are still freaked out by us, bringing a people eating fae super won't help
>>31242277>She stays here.We really don't want that other lord to steal the place before she sets up defenses.
>>31242277>She stays hereAs much as I really want her to come with us, we did just make 3 extra gossamer outfits not that the tassel bikini counts as a full outfit, so a bit of time to restock wouldn't hurt.
>>31242277she should probably make a gossamer producing minion.
Rolled 2>>31242277We could train the captains in the wyld, we only need about 4 hours a day, they don't need to spend all day with us, tell them to go to the wyld in the mornings, that way train them and spend time with Silk
Rolled 3>>31242277>She stays here.I'll miss her.We should make sure to visit her regularly
Rolled 2>>31242277>She stays here.
>>31242277>She stays here.have her come to our city when we've started it, rather than scaring everyone in Tiana with more supernatural bullshit
"I think it's better if you stay here, Silk."Silk makes a sad face."I know." You pat her. At first the sensation of touching that slimy body wasn't very pleasant to you, but now you've gotten used to it, even enjoying it. "But the people of Tianna aren't going to like you at first, and some already hate me there. It would be awkward. Besides, you have to remake your sword and set up defenses and gather some more Gossamer, right?"She nods. "Then... good voyage, Maka."[Session end]
>>31242277>She stays hereBut we should remember to come get her before the parties and ceremonies and shit start.Also which outfit will we be wearing home? I vote for Tassels, but am at this point just happy it got through
>>31242385Thanks for running!
>>31242385awww poor SilkI hope setting up everything doesn't take too long. It's mean to leave a pet all alone like this
Rolled 2>>31242385Nice session EF, thanks
Rolled 8>>31242385>She nods. "Then... good voyage, Maka.">[Session end]I'm sure we could spare an hour or two to do something with Silk. Maybe get her a leash and take her for a walk through the wyld?
I wonder if the Lintha are going to troll us now by sinking the ships while the crew is celibrating.
>>31242385I'm looking forward to seeing Amata and Irene again!
>>31242385It's only, what, a few hours via Air Tia? Checking up on her isn't hard to do.
>>31242407Agreed. I hope she can set up a steward.
We need to ask Smoke if there is any red jade under her mountain. Samiel deserves a decent sword.
>>31242385>some already hate me thereWe still need to do something about this, it can't really be hard to make nice with the city being who we are
XP Rewards:2 XP (base)2 XP (conquered the Wyld of the Black Marsh)You can spend it to increase a skill from 2 to 3 right now.
>>31242491Wasn't her whole thing she wanted to be far away from any other Fae?
>>31242533Yeah if she needs another fae to be a steward she won't get one
Rolled 4I vote we save for HSDD. If the thing about that custom version of thousandfold courtesan having HSDD as a prereq still holds.
>>31242521Thanks for running. I think we should save up for Dawn 4.
>>31242521Partying hard is Eclipse, right?then I vote for that.
>>31242521I want another point in Eclipse, but am willing to defer to those with superior Exalted experience
>>31242521Either Eclipse or Night
>>31242521Let's either get Eclipse or save up and buy a charm
We're saving up for either seduction boost+supersexor ox-body and fast healing
Rolled 4>>31242521Either Eclipse or keep saving.
>>31242563Not a bad thing to angle for. I would say that Dawn 4 for Tiger Training and then HSDD for thousandfold courtesan would be a pretty good way to go.>>31242569>>31242575Not Eclipse, we should just find somebody to manage things in our stead. We should focus on our strengths. Sex and violence.
>>31242521I'm for twilight
>>31242521>EclipseMax those Social skills
>>31242521Let's bank it for now
>>31242521I vote that we keeps saving for another power. Perhaps we can buy the upgrade to MJP so we can put out a better performance for the volcano goddess.The Ox body and getting Body mending meditation (which should be the healing one after that) is also good, we spend too much time in the wyld resting up from our injuries
>>31242616save up for charms
>>31242685I really do want that upgrade, plus it's only 2 XP away
>>31242614Did EF ever say if seduction boost+supersex could be a thing a thing? If so we should save up for a Social increase since Appearance falls under that
>>31242711He said custom charms would be allowed
>>31242521Save up for the Dawn 4, HSDD+supersex charm or the two Night charms depending on which do we need the most. We will get much more mileage from our powers if we focus.Personally, I would eventually like to get D5 and Z5 and get the perfects.
>>31242742We can already access the only night charm we really need, Graceful Crane Style iis up for 10 XP, so I'm okay with maxing out our sex and violence skills
>>31242770Lightning Speed is worth getting too eventaully.
We could choose to start doing less violence personally, I mean we saw Tia last thread, she's an absolute murder machine, if we need to fight we could have her take point
>>31242787I am impressed Tia managed to get through her behemoth battle with full health and essence.You make a good point, but Dawn will also help with training and leading troops. Dawn 5 and Physical 4 should be on our list to get eventually.I like going in from the front and making a big impact.
>>31242787Agreed with this guy, Which is why I say Eclipse (this is not a vote, I already voted for Eclipse further up)
Rolled 7>>31242711Increasing our attributes is literally the biggest waste of experience imaginable.
>>31242385>Silk makes a sad face.I read that as her literally drawing a frowny face into her gooey head using her fingers over her actual face.
>>31242866Eh, going to twilight 5 would probably be excessive as well. 3 has a bunch of good options
>>31242711Solar Charms never have Attribute prerequisites.
>>31242951I remembered that shortly after I typed it, but figured it wasn't important enough to correct
I wonder if Legendary Warrior Curriculum is a thing here. To those who are not in the know. LWC is an ungrade to Tiger Warrior Training which allows you to teach more things under TWT like Ride, Medicine, Survival and Sail
>>31243042I was mostly pointing it out for the benefit of the people who don't know Exalted.
Rolled 9>>31243149I hope EF can confirm that one way or the other. A Permanent upgrade to TWTT that adds Night and Eclipse to our list of trainable stats would be extremely worthwhile from where I'm standing.
>>31243149>Ride, Medicine, Survival, and SailThose are all ludicrously useful for us.
>>31243503Not as a TWTT upgrade. there's another training charm in Twilight for that.
>>31243149Wouldn't we only be able to raise to up to the point we have them at?
Rolled 10>>31243537Okay. With both TWTT and the Twilight training charm, would there be anything left? Would we need a Bureaucracy/Eclipse-based training charm for things like Social and Eclipse? Would Night fall under the Twilight one, or is that not trainable?
