Tough decisions can be harder to face than actual battles, sometimes. You think this is one of those.Your alliance defeated Tarien Dorian, the Prince of the Black Swamp, and reclaimed thousands of kilometres of Wyldland to Creation. This land has been divvied up, with the lion's share going to you, including two powerful water-aspected demesnes and the remainder of the Wyldland, ruled over by your new pet Silk.Now, you're back in Tianna and put in front of the choice.On one side, you are the lawful queen of Gem, since you were a mortal, and you plan to return from your exile and reclaim your throne someday.On the other, you now own land of the island of Tianna. You conquered it in battle against the enemies of Creation, and your claim is just as legitimate.And lastly, you do not want to part ways and sever connections with Amata's kingdom. She has been a good friend, a gracious host, a steadfast ally and a passionate lover, and you could say the same of Samiel and Irene. You feel like a part of the family and kingdom yourself.And you've decided that you are not going to give up any one of these three things.You have already discussed with Tia and found a solution together to propose to Amata."Amata." You tell her, softly lying down in your bed. You stare at the roof with a long sigh, your mind and heart in chaos.She caresses your head. "You look like you've got a lot on your mind."You smile tiredly in response. "I do, don't I. I... I want to stay close to you. But...""But you have a destiny. A calling, from a higher power." She nods. "And, on top of that, you have your own past. Your own kingdom."You nod."...I and Tia came up with an idea. It's a crazy idea, so feel free to shoot it down."She lies down next to you. "I'm listening."Tia, with a grin wide as her mouth, lies down on the other side, combing a hand through your hair. "You'll like it."Millian, a bit embarrassed, looks at Regis questioningly. "Are they going to...?"(cont.)

>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.>Solar? Zenith?

I don't know if that thread will survive in the archives, or if it should. In case it doesn't: nothing happened in it in-game, it was all out-of-game discussions, so if you're reading this from archives don't worry, you didn't miss anything important.Also, sorry for not putting a title on the thread, forgot.

>>31319849With the charm some people are talking about, "YOU STAY AND YOU JOIN" is likely to actually get results.
>>31319870EF said we'd do it at the start of this one because our thread was on the last page when the session ended last time
>>31319878I really don't want Husband-Seducing Demon Dance for exactly that reason. I just know we're going to mind-control some people into doing shit for the sake of convenience or humor. And down that path lies the First Age.
>>31319870On Friday, he said we would vote on experience at the start of the next (this) thread.
>>31319878Yeah, we should not get that, or HSDD. Too UMI for my tastes
>>31319892But the first age is fun!For Solars.And everyone mind-raped into agreeing with Solars.
"You can stay." You smile, patting the free space on the bed.Nervously, the maid and the butler walk up to it and sit down. Amata seems endlessly entertained by their reactions."...So, what was your idea?" She asks you."I want to rule together with you." You say, turning to her. "We've known each other for a long time. I know you. I trust you. And... I'm a bit ashamed to admit that I also need you.""Nothing to be ashamed of." She nods, caressing the silky texture of your tabard with gentle tugs. The fabric it's made of is so smooth and soft to the touch it's almost addictive. "Tianna has an already-established bureaucracy, government, and, in general, a fairly solid structure. It's better to expand something that's already there, rather than building from zero.""I thought you had no interest in territorial expansion." You reply."Not for myself." She explains. "But if we're together? And I have my own personal sexy, charismatic powerhouse with her own pirate army, and her husband who eats Fae kingdoms for breakfast? Well, no reason not to get a bit ambitious, is there?""Speaking of which." You grasp Amata's hand and hold it in yours, and with the other hold Tia's. "...I and Tia would like to get married just after the festival for Dancing Smoke. Either here in Tianna, or...""Or in your new Manse when it will be ready, right?" She guesses. "Maybe it would be better to do it there? It would be more... your own thing. If you can wait.""I waited a lot." Tia mumbles. "I can wait a bit more. I'll let Maka decide. there to hold it.""On the other hand, doing it here could make a positive impression on the people of Tianna." She notes. "If we handle it well. I'd be the one marrying you of course.""About that." Tia interjects, but you prod her in the side. You'll talk about that later.>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.>I'd like to marry her here in Tianna, in a grand ceremony.>Other?
>>31320173>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.
>>31320173>I'd like to marry her here in Tianna, in a grand ceremony.
>>31320173>>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.
>>31320173>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.we can have a much crazier ceremony there, if only because the gods and Exalts can do a lot more without random people running in fear
>>31320173>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.We already discussed this and the ceremony is mostly to satisfy us since we decided we're already married
>>31320173>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.Their marriage is something for them, not for Tianna.The other marriage on the other hand can be a grand ceremony and all that.
Rolled 5>>31320173>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.It won't be as grand a ceremony as in Tianna, but we can still invite the gods/lunars and other alliesThe big ceremony can be the marriage with Amata
>>31320173>Other?I don't care so much about where we do it, I care about how. We need to get an astrologer to find out when the next solar eclipse will be, or at least a time when the sun and moon are both visible in the sky. Then, we need to be priestess-bride sanctifying the marriage in the name and light of both sun and moon, praying to our respective deities for their blessings.Let's go full-Zenith on this.
>>31320173>I'd like to marry her here in Tianna, in a grand ceremony.Since the ceremony is just for show, it should be a SHOW
>>31320223This is a good idea. I like it.+1
>>31320223We really have to do something big like this, we're a Zenith marrying our Lunar mate, it's going to be amazing
>>31320173>>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.I'm sure a nice private wedding filled with pirates, Lunars, Dragonblooded, and gods will put any 'grand ceremony' we would be allowed to have in Tianna to shame
>>31320223Fucking thiswhichever wins, put this in with it.
Rolled 8>>31320173>I think I'll marry Tia in our own new home, when it'll be ready.>>31320223that really depends on how long we'd have to wait. I'd be fine with a month or so, but any longer than that and I'd rather just do it normally
>>31320223I could not support this sentiment more.
>>31320223YESpic related, but with less lifeless craters
Rolled 8>>31320223I'm on board with this.
>>31320302>implying we didn't make those craters fucking the shit out of Tia
"...I'll wait for our manse to be ready." You say. "Which... brigs me to my next marriage."Amata slowly drags herself over you, resting her chin on your stomach. "...Is that an offer?"You nod. "It is."Millian almost falls from the bed. "You can't mean-...""I do." You reply.Amata smiles and drags herself a bit closer to your face. "You're planning for yourself a serious harem of beautiful and powerful women, Maka.""Yes!" goes Tia. "I'm so proud of her!"You didn't feel a shred of shame walking around with no clothes in Freeport, but this is making you shy and embarrassed in a very weird way. It's so strange to discuss this with Amata and Tia."There are conditions, though." Tia gets all professional, resting her arms on your chest. "I'm first. I'm at the top of the list. Are you okay with that?""As long as you won't keep Maka all for yourself."You stand upright, tossing both of them off you. "...I'm not a table, you two!"Amata giggles. "...I'm alright with being your second. I know I can't possibly compete with the bond Tia has with you. That's something that transcends this life." She kisses your navel. "All I know, however, is this Maka here. And if I'm being allowed to spend the rest of my life with her, then I'm a happy woman.""...Weren't you already married? I was worried that..." You mumble."...It's a long story. I... I'd really prefer to talk about it another time.">Insist>Move on
>>31320173Not like it has a chance of winning but>I'd like to marry her here in Tianna, in a grand ceremony.Because having a big ceremony is important, and the bigger the better
Rolled 9>>31320223I'm down with this. >I'd like to marry her here in Tianna, in a grand ceremony.Also this, if we can combine the two without causing a fuss. Too many people still don't like us.

Rolled 7>>31320425>Amata giggles. "...I'm alright with being your second. I know I can't possibly compete with the bond Tia has with you. That's something that transcends this life." She kisses your navel. "All I know, however, is this Maka here. And if I'm being allowed to spend the rest of my life with her, then I'm a happy woman."I'm so happy we chose to marry her
Rolled 4>>31320425>Move on
>>31320490Best MILF indeed
Rolled 4>>31320425>Move onAm I sensing arranged marriage? A somewhat unhappy one? Maybe the reason she was willing to get Samiel out of his?
Rolled 7>>31320425gently kiss her, on whatever the closest part of her to us is now that we threw her"It's alright. We'll have to talk about it eventually, but I'll wait until you're ready"
>>31320425>Move onI'm a bit worried about it being relevant what with the whole remarriage and such, but I trust Amata to be smart enough to not keep something important away from us just because it's an uncomfortable subject.
Rolled 2We're voting on what to spend our XP on in the discussion thread, if anyone isn't in there:>>31320487
Rolled 7>>31320509>arranged marriageCould be, it might also be how the Realm heard about Samiel in the first place and I think EF mentioned that Amata has a pretty strong lineage especially for someone not from the Realm
>>31320625So we get to save a classy, wonderful lady from a lonely, loveless marriage with lesbian orgies and massive brown tits.It's the fuckin' love story of the year.
Sooo... time for a royal threesome?
"...Alright. When you feel like taking about it...""Don't be rude to the queen!" Millian defends her, even against you."I'm sorry, I'm sorry." You raise your hands."By the way, another thing I wanted to ask you." She stabs an index finger in your bellybutton, making you jolt in surprise. Her finger is incredibly cold, damn Air aspect. "You did it with my son, too, didn't you?"Tia pouts. "She didn't invite me.""I was worried you'd break him!" You complain, clutching your chilled stomach."So you did." Amata pushes you down. "...How was he?""Eh. It wasn't like that. It was more... he did us?" You think about it. "We wanted him to take charge.""Oh, good." She nods. "I think he needed to-" She stops. "Wait, you and who?""...Dancing Smoke?""Ugh.""She seems to have taken a liking to Samiel." Tia nods. Amata clearly isn't thrilled.Millian and Regis are just looking at you three talking in a tangle on the bed. Both red as beets, but also rooted to the spot.Amata, on the other hand, doesn't look too thrilled about the idea of Dancing Smoke having an interest in her son.>Ask her why.>Speak in favor of the relationship.>Speak against the relationship.>Keep a neutral stance.>Other?

"...Why do you dislike Dancing Smoke so much?""I don't trust gods." She sighs. "In general. They want worship, but most of them don't seem to be interested in earning it. Most of them are just a step above being bullies. Some don't even make that step.""...She is kind of pushy...""Pushy? She wanted human sacrifice." Amata points out. Millian and Regis shiver. "She did?" "And you left me with her?!""...She accepted the idea that she's not going to get it.""In exchange for worship." Amata rolls around, staring at the roof while idly playing with your hair. "It always comes back to that.""...Yes, but there's not just that.""Oh?""...I think she's very lonely." You muse. "And, well. Samiel had a great first time and worked out some of his frustrations, and she has someone to soothe her loneliness. They both gained something from it.""...I don't like it." She's still determined. "But Samiel is an adult... in every sense of the word now I guess. He's free to live his life how he wants to. I just hope he doesn't make any mistakes. Will you keep an eye out for him?""Of course. He'll be my son too, soon, right?"She nods. "...Did he dominate her, at least.""Completely." You grin. "I made sure of it.""I should get him to give us a detailed, minute-by-minute account of the event." She ponders. You cringe instinctively. "Maybe in front of a crowd.""You're evil.""Look who's talking, Anathema." >Talk about religion in Tianna>Talk about the Manse>Talk about the city>Talk about Mikahil and his architect friend>Talk about Samiel>Talk about Irene>Talk about Regis and Millian>Enough talking for now(short AFK)
>>31321067>>Talk about Samiel>>Talk about Irene>>Talk about Regis and Milliannamely bringing them all officially into the harem
>>31321067>Talk about religion in Tianna>Talk about the cityLet's have the immaculate order situation dealt with BEFORE Smoke's festival. Hate to have something ruin that public event.
Rolled 8>>31321067>Talk about the Mansewhat options are we going to have
>>31321093Regis is too young.
Rolled 2>>31321067>Talk about religion in Tianna>Talk about the cityHow are they going to respond to us and what can we do to prepare before hand
Rolled 3>>31321067>Talk about religion in Tianna
Rolled 3>>31321067>Talk about religion in TiannaSince she just playfully called us Anathema, it gives us a nice way to shift the conversation to religion and how we can work on shifting people away from the Immaculate view as all Solars as monsters.I mean, she knows two Solars and three Lunars now. She should be able to tell that we're not babyeating monsters. The question is just how to convince everyone else.
Rolled 4>>31321067>Talk about religion in TiannaAmata seems pretty iffy on religion. We need to know she's okay with us starting a cult before we do.
Rolled 9>>31321093>namely bringing them all officially into the haremI actually want them to be cute together, we're obviously going to sex them eventually, but I kind of want them to be together first

Rolled 9>>31321116>We need to know she's okay with us starting a cult before we do.We also need to talk about thisOh have we also talked about our new pet Raksha?
Rolled 9>>31321140>Oh have we also talked about our new pet Raksha?We have not.
Rolled 1>>31321116I'm against starting a cult for now.Let's just settle into our new role as queen consort before we start preaching of Glorious Solar Supremacy.(Actually, I think that's the name of a charm too. Then again tack "glorious", "solar" and/or "supremacy" to anything and you have an Exalted charm, just like that.)
Rolled 5>>31321067>"Look who's talking, Anathema." Every scene with her makes me love Amata more.>Talk about religion in TiannaEspecially with three Lunars coming to the defense of Tianna against Abyssals, the subject of Anathema is going to be coming up.And if we're doing priorities lists:>Talk about Mikahil and his architect friend>Talk about IreneReally, though, I wouldn't mind taking each of these in turn.
Rolled 7>>31321149>Let's just settle into our new role as queen consort before we start preaching of Glorious Solar Supremacy.We can have a cult without doing that. A cult is of huge benefit to us, our skillset and caste make us a natural priestess, and it can be something as simple as people offering the occasional prayer that their (new) queen keep doing a great job, or shape up their act. Religion in Exalted is much more akin to making requests and occasional offerings towards an essence-using figure, rather than actual faith in the real-world sense.We DEFINITELY want a cult.
>>31320425>Marrying AmataWhy are we doing this, exactly? That would make Samiel and Irene our children.We have sex with those two.
Rolled 3>>31321213>Why are we doing this, exactly? That would make Samiel and Irene our children.>We have sex with those two.
Rolled 8>>31321213Because the largest minority of people wanted this, apparently.
Rolled 7>>31321213No reason we still can't.EXALTED
Rolled 7>>31321221The Largest Minority is generally called the Majority, anon.
Rolled 9>>31321236No, it's definitely not. The majority is >50%. The largest minority is when there's no majority, just one minority larger than the other minorities.
>>31321220Aaaand it will be a very good piece of propaganda for the Immaculates to use when it comes time to bring in the Wyld Hunt or the legions and knock us over.Decadent uppity god-queen who has sex with her own children?
Rolled 8>>31321245Which is a majority for most governmental and election purposes that don't use backwards first-past-the-post systems.
>>31321248step-children. there is a difference.
Rolled 4>>31321248>Decadent uppity god-queen who has sex with her own children?This sums up half of everybody with a bit of status in creation ever.
Rolled 6>>31321263No, it's called a plurality.
Rolled 9>>31321248I thought this is kinda common among the Dragonblood?I'm probably wrong, I'm new to exalted though
>>31321275what better way to keep the bloodline strong than to have grandkids with your kids?
Rolled 4>>31321287You're very wrong. They try to keep incests to cousins or more distant. Inbreeding is still a serious problem and carries HUGE stigmas.
Rolled 2>>31321287We're an ANATHEMA! doing it so it's wrong.I still so go for it
Rolled 6>>31321248>childrenStep kidsand it's only a problem if we keep fucking themWe probably will though
>>31321301We're not actually related, though, which sort of dodges that bullet.Now, if we start tanglin' with our grandkids, then it gets kinda First Age.
Rolled 1>>31321316Sort of, but I doubt the immaculate propaganda will care. We're fucking our kids, plain and simple, as far as they and the common folk they're preaching to are concerned.
>>31321264>>31321312They're not going to point out the difference if they're using it as propaganda.
Rolled 2>>31321325>>31321327It's a good thing we plan on dealing with them soon
Rolled 3>>31321126This sounds like a good order for things, but make it>Talk about Regis and MillianThen>Talk about Irene
Rolled 5>>31321340>It's a good thing we plan on dealing with them soonFor now. It's only a matter of time before more immaculates show up and the Realm starts trying to fuck us up. We need to be aware that all of our choices now are going to have an impact on how much material they have to work with when that happens.
>>31321340>>31321362Ideally we were going to convince the Immaculate Order that we're not a big priority as far as Solars-who-need-to-be-put-down go. The Wyld Hunt can only spare so many people with the Empress gone and the Great Houses fighting for succession, and there are 150 Solars out there now where there used to be 15 or so for the last couple thousand years.This, however, is a sign of decadent-god-king behaviour and is the exact sort of thing they look for.
Rolled 1>>31321461> Solar carving out a kingdom in the West> seducing dragon-blooded monarchs> fucking their stepchildren> not a high priorityThe Solars who aren't a high priority are the ones like Mikahil, intentionally trying not to upset anything ands keep their cover. We're the opposite of that.
>>31321461we are the Solars they try to kill. The ones who are drawn to lead, the ones who carve out empires and cause people to follow them, to love them. We are the Anathema that, if we fall to the Great Curse, could lead to the return of the First Age's level of oppression
Rolled 4>>31321461Well, it's not like we could ignore them forever. I'd have liked to avoid their attention until we dealt with the abyssals, but sometimes things happen and you marry the queen of an island nation and have sex with your step children
>>31321526>First Age>oppressionHeh, no. For one, everything was far better in that time, even with the occasional Twilight experiments. For another, the Immaculates you refer to believe that Dragon Blooded are the highest - and only - Exalts. They don't really know what the Celestials are, just that they are the opposite of what the faith teaches: individuals who gain great power because they refused their place in life.
Rolled 6>>31321664Bro, regardless of your view on the First Age, this is clearly the exact shit the immaculate order hates. And we ain't exactly Bull of the North powerful yet.
Rolled 8The Wyld hunt is used to killing single Solars and Lunars that have no idea what they're doing, no equipment and maybe 2 or 3 charms. We have 4 Celestial Exalted and a bunch of DBs. I don't think they can spare the resources needed to take us out.
Rolled 4>>31321729They probably could if the could get their shit together long enough to organize a proper hunt.So basically we're good.
>>31321729they are sure as hell going to trywhich is a good thing. Even if it's not as good as Orihalcum for us, the Wyld Hunt will bring us Jade christmas
Rolled 7>>31321729The only time they've needed to in recent memory was the battle with the Bull of the North, which they lost strictly due to intentionally-poor leadership at the top. We don't have half the resources the Bull has, and aren't likely to anytime soon. This time around, they would probably burn Tianna as a whole off the map entirely using airships with essence weapons.If and when they get word of us, of course, which will probably be in the next few weeks, considering how high-profile we are.
Rolled 9>>31321763>they are sure as hell going to tryare they? The men and resources they'd risk on us could take out half a dozen starting Exalt and prevent them from becoming a danger.
Rolled 10>>31321763>just having five dudes with jade try to kill us>not having legions of mortals, airships, and essence artillery with the DBs hanging out in the back in case we beat their mooksYou have intentionally-shitty wyld hunts, don't you?
"...Say, Amata? The Immaculates worry me." You confide to her."There are some here in the city, yeah. Less in the countryside. Their religion is naturally supportive of my right to rule, so I've left them alone up to now." She admits. "Though the reason they're here is pretty obviously to provide a permanent connection to the Realm.""They're in their payroll?""The leaders." she points out. "Most of the people of Tianna don't want the Realm to move in, at all. They've seen what happens when they do, what with Wavecrest being one of their client states.""Wavecrest is really poor, though. They don't have a lot of industry or resources.""Well, Tianna isn't very different. All the west is quite resource-poor. But the Realm still forces its own governors and taxes and rules. People don't like that.""Like you don't have your own taxes." You prod her side, payback for before."Well, I do, but they're spent locally. Not shipped overseas to sponsor armies that will never protect me, or extravagant orgies I won't take part in.""Better for you to spend your citizens' money on orgies you can take part of, right?" Tia asks. You wonder how seriously."My orgies are fairly cheap. This one, for example, is top of the line and costing me just food and board for you two.""...This is an orgy?" Millian seems unconvinced."Give us time." Tia replies."...See, my biggest worry is that I think my duty to the Unconquered Sun is to spread His word. And...""...And you think it would upset things in my city." She guesses. "...No sense hiding it: it would. Even if most people here aren't Immaculates... by now, everyone knows we're close. If you started preaching, AND we married, it'd be...""...close to a state religion.""Precisely." She playfully underlines her reply with a slap to your your backside, producing a sharp sound."Ow."(cont.)
Rolled 6>>31321786Of course they would. We're already a danger, and expending men and resources on threats like us is the whole reason they have those men and resources in the first place. They would just dial it up even higher.Remember, they can't FIND most starting exalts. They need to do stupid, overt shit that gets word of them spread. I wouldn't be surprised if we're the only known anathema with a confirmed location in the entire Threshold, at the moment, aside from the Bull.
Rolled 7>>31321781>battle with the Bull of the Northwasn't that an entire house legion? The guys that are completely focused on the coming civil war?I don't think we have to worry about them
>>31321820Two Tepet Legions. They were taken down by a Solar Exalt, an entire army of Icewalkers, and the entire nation of Halta. There may have been more stuff on the Bull's side, I can't quite remember.
Rolled 4>>31321820Yeah, that was a bit bigger than a Wyld Hunt, and is the reason why the Realm is so averse to committing resources to stop up and coming Solars.
Rolled 1>>31321820>completely focused on the coming civil warThat's an extreme mischaracterization of the situation, and the Tepet legions were going to steamroll him before orders from the top forced them into intentionally-suicidal formations to punish their legions.We don't have the same power as the Bull, nor the same deus ex machina bullshit to save us from getting roflstomped.
>>31321872>A Solar ExaltHe has an entire CIRCLE of Solars. He's got a fucking impressive force.
>>31321798Amata's got a good head on her pretty shoulders.
Rolled 5>>31321872And entire circle of Solars, actually, including someone with Solar Circle Sorcery and warstriders. And they were STILL going to lose until someone gave orders that intentionally ruined the Tepet legions.
>>31321887I couldn't remember if the Bull had his Circle with him. If he does, then it's entirely reasonable for him to take down two Legions, considering he had his own crack army of Icewalkers and an entire other empire backing up that Circle.
Rolled 9The Realm isn't going to send a Legion to take us down
Rolled 7>>31321922Yup. The bull had a full circle, warstriders, Solar Circle Sorcery, a massive army of Tiger-Warrior barbarians, and so forth.And he was STILL going to lose until the Tepet Legions got sabotaged by orders from the top.
>>31321798>We can handle being crushed by buildings and fistfighting Behemoths thanks to our iron skin>Smack on the ass still causes painDoes Amata have some sort of anime martial art where her slaps bypass Soak?
Rolled 2>>31321943They don't need to. We're not that big of a badass yet. All it would take is one airship with downward-pointed cannons.
Rolled 8>>31321949we have to activate that charm
>>31321949think it was more of a deadpan than actual pain
>>31321922Well, as was said...he was going to get his ass handed to him until Realm Politics happened and buttfucked the Legions.>>31321949She's a (Likely) high essence DB. I wouldn't be surprised if she knows at least one Celestial-Tier martial art.
Rolled 9>>31321961Tia can fly, she takes us with her, we board the ship and get a cool ride.
"See, even if we keep the freedom of religion, having you preach the Sun openly in town, while being so close to me, would be seen... as unfair competition at best. So, yes, even with the best of intentions, it would upset the entire city. And don't think that just getting rid of the Immaculate ringleaders would fix things.""I know." You nod. "I'd have to ease people bit by bit.""Bo-ring." Tia has been stroking the back of your head for a while now, evidently believing you to be a cat or something. Or she might just be trying to find something to do to fight boredom: she doesn't seem interested in your discussion, and is apparently just biding her time."...The part that worries me the most, though, is that there's definitely some people who'd follow your preaching.""...And then it would be a religious civil war between them and the Immaculates." That much is obvious."We'd win it." Tia points out."In a civil war, everyone loses." Amata corrects her. You roll around, accidentally closer to Regis. Poor boy gets startled, probably intimidated by the very confident skinship the three of you are displaying, worried that you'll drag him under the blankets and rape him or something. With a gentle smile, though, you make him feel more at ease."Even if I started my own town around my manse, and started preaching there...""...the situation would just change to hostility towards the new settlement and anyone who migrates there." She concludes. "The way I see it... You can either win their trust over a long period of time, or start a very focused, delicate and risky campaign aimed at weakening and discrediting them while promoting yourself, or act by force and remove them, either violently or diplomatically.""...You'd support me even in such a drastic course of action?""I'm marrying you, after all." She points out.>Win them slowly.>Focused campaign of persuasion.>Chase them out of Tianna.
Rolled 3>>31322000Probably not. Seriously, we're just plain not that powerful yet. A medium-sized platoon with a half-dozen DBs, a fully-buffed complement of mortals, and high-end magitech will just plain end us. We barely survived kicking the shit out of a bunch of fae, and fae are - generally speaking - sub-DB in power.
>>31322027>Win them slowly.
Rolled 4>>31322027>>>Win them slowly.>>Focused campaign of persuasion.A combination of those two. A long-term campaign of focused persuasion.
Rolled 6>>31322027>Win them slowly.slow and steady
>>31322027>Win them slowly.We need to handle this carefully.
Rolled 4>>31322027>Win them slowly.Let's take our time here, we're not in any super big hurry
>>31322027>Win them slowly.We have time. What we don't want to do is to go above the threshold where the Realm gets off it's collective ass and Wyld Hunts us and annexes Tianna because they obviously can't rule themselves if they let an Anathema marry their queen.
Rolled 5>>31322027>Focused campaign of persuasion.
Rolled 1>>31322036have you looked at Tia's stats? She's a murder machine
Rolled 5>>31322060Yeah, I like this. No reason to rush it, but also no reason not to exert some effort.
>>31322027>Focused campaign of persuasion.I am voting for Husband Seducing Demon Dance.
>>31322027>"...You'd support me even in such a drastic course of action?">"I'm marrying you, after all." She points out.MAKA HAS THE BEST WIVES/HUSBANDS EVER>Win them slowly.
>>31322036I am to late to prevent stupidity. Allas i am sadly going to post my too late reaons spewed without editing directly from my brain and in a haste in this thread too. Although with heavy heart i have to say i do not like the way we handled this. I thought we had it figgured out on how we are going to proceed and were not going to change from last week from Federation to now on Monarchy and Marriage alliances.So:And damn i do not agree with what this thing has brought us too.Haven't we had this basic divergence already in previous threads?Vassals to Amata will not work for us as a Solar since we will eventually outshine her by far and its going to be painful once there is conflict between us.Marriage limits our expansion enormously and will descend into dynastic policy.The only way for us to expand fast and be able to bring Three Rivers and eventually others like the Island of that Captain i forgot his name is a Federation.Full on Haslanti League Style.We don't care if you are a monarchy, a Nexus style bullshit trader town of the Guild or effing Look Shy Mk2. Or just a Mortal council hall with hired DB and God blooded specialists.All of these can be federated. But if we go with marriaghe others will want the same since its the only way to get in without being a junior memeber forever.In a federation they can get over being a junior member faster than in a monarchy and it can happen to more than one.Plus with a marriage at its core we make a main core thing kind of like the Habsburg/ Austro-Hungary empire.Fuck that shit. I say we go with a Mix of EU style join up with common law and administration standards shared coupled with a British empire dominions if we beat or have to protect someone that can eventually graduate to junior federated memebers.
Rolled 10>>31322094>She's a murder machineCOMPARED TO US. She's a murder machine compared to us. Even she didn't walk out of that unscathed. And the Wyld Hunt doesn't play fair. They poison, use meatshields, grind down with attrition, and THEN move in for the kill. And that's when they're not also using artillery, air supremacy, and so forth.We will not just be able to breeze past the Wyld Hunt. I'm not saying they're guaranteed to win - not by a long shot. But don't underestimate them. They're not idiots, and they are powerful, and they're very dedicated.
>>31322112contThe problem is that we really need Eclipse help to forge up the Bureaucracy of this to work right. We really need serious bureaucracy. But for our purposes this is the net superior choice as it is the one that allows us to get Gem the easiest way, and to forge a empire in the west that can have a chance to resist the Realm -and we are going to get noticed once we get Gem backThe only reason they wont move on Gem its because its fucking far away, but the Western Archipelagos they can reach with a navy so they will strike the Island because they wont let a solar have gem and the islands.Trying to merge Federation and Marriage Alliance and Monarchy is working at cross purposes. One goes for stability the other one is for growth. You can not do the same things and if you do merge them you get the disadvantages of both while only common advantages.Seriously Chose one or the other. Going for both is counterproductive.And i think we have agreed long ago that we wont be vassals to anyone and wont accept any sovereigns over us. And wont force Amata in the same position.Thus my vote goes to pure federation. We wait for our common acquaintance the scrawny eclipse and ask for him how we could apply our idea.Also considering how big of a deal we made marriage out to be to Tia do we really want to cheapen the whole thing to a bureaucratic procedure , especially considering we are already friends and lovers with Amata?>And now back to reading this thread again. This is my reaction to skimming through the first thread of the day, so yeah digest it with a grain of salt.
>>31322112Please don't.You missed it.We moved to a second thread to get away from the argument. Don't bring it here.
>>31322027>>Win them slowly.Focused campaign will need, well, our focus. And i want to focus other things.
>>31322112Your opinion is noted.
Rolled 8>>31322036To be fair that was one long ass extended campaign, most of the fights we went into we weren't at full strength, I think we were only not injured right at the beginning, other than that we were just waiting for our essence to refill and heading out
Rolled 7>>31322027>Focused campaign of persuasion.>>31322112>>31322132Why are you shitting up the new thread with this, stop, it's over, you lost, deal or leave.
Rolled 9>>31322112>>31322132OkaySuper late by the way
>>31321898And, assuming that picture is accurate, almost as stacked as we are.
>>31322132nah. what we need is a Sidereal ally
Rolled 6>>31322144>most of the fights we went into we weren't at full strengthThat's the entire point of Wyld Hunt operating procedure. They try to whittle you down one skirmish at a time until you're out of Essence and already a little injured. They're willing to extend tons of resources and entire legions of mortals to get you to that point.And then they buff up and alpha strike you into oblivion with the most powerful weapons they can find.The Wyld Hunt doesn't - and never will - fight fair.
>>31322027>Win them slowly.Either other option will likely result in retaliation, and we have bigger fish to fry. Abyssal fish.
>>31322112>>31322132I feel sad for you since you wrote so much but nobody even wants to care right now.
>>31322173...yeah, good luck with that.
Rolled 1>>31322108The absolute best
Rolled 10>>31322186hey, the Gold Faction is a thing
>>31322186>What is the Gold Faction
Rolled 2>>31322164That's a plus, Tia's great and all, but a bit lacking up top.>>31322173Someone once threw out the idea that Millian was a Sidereal, I forget if they had reasons or if they were pulling shit from their ass though, probably the later
>>31322173no, we ned to go Hard Modeseduce Chejop
>>31322215Pro-Solar sidereals, basically.
>>31322176Are the Immaculate Monks dragonblooded or mortals?Regardless, this is such a good spot for HSDD that more people should seriously consider the option.
Rolled 10>>31322222>Someone once threw out the idea that Millian was a Sidereal, I forget if they had reasons or if they were pulling shit from their ass though, probably the laterWe had a reason at the time. Millian was everywhere, we were getting secret letters from M, and Amata had told us about a secret spy ally. It turned out M was Mikahil. So, no, she's probably not Sidereal.
>>31322231>Interacting with the Ketchup>you'regonnahaveabadtime.tiff
Rolled 1>>31322235Both, along with bronze faction Sidereals sometimes
Rolled 2>>31322244We thought Mikahil might have been one early on too when he first showed up
Rolled 2>>31322235>Regardless, this is such a good spot for HSDD that more people should seriously consider the option.>Mind control the rival religion into forsaking their holy dogma in favor of us.FUCK. THAT. That would just be proving them right.
>>31322154This is not shit. Planing and development is my main enjoyment out of quests.And such a project was my main attraction to this thing. For me this is the fucking gold and we just wasted it to get married again, with a member of our harem basically. Because, Fuck it!I really dislike inconsistency and wild swing in quests.>>31322159No choice, one has to work, or wont afford power and net linkup.
Rolled 3>>31322265It's not shit because you had an opinion, it's shit because EF created this thread SPECIFICALLY not to talk about what you spent several posts ranting about, his one request was that we leave it in the other thread
Rolled 7>>31322265Listen, I agree with you 100%. I was all gung ho for a federation/deliberative, and it had been apparently decided before I even woke up. But SHUT THE FUCK UP. The last thread got retarded, and we need to let it die. The choice has been made, and we need to live with it.
>>31322235A bit of both.The combat monks are DB, but many non-exalted children go serve the faith as well as well as some regular mortals.Also, do you not think that the Monks (or just DB in general) would have defenses in place against "Anathema trickery"?Besides, it's not as if it's a snap of the finger. You have to do a performance. Meaning holding a speech, performing a dance, or something like that.In the middle of them trying to murder you horribly.I can't see any problem at all with trying to HSDD the Immaculates. No sir.
>>31322326>In the middle of them trying to murder you horribly.Not in support of the 'Seduce the immaculates' ideas but I find that this part is likely why Zenith's favor resistance charms.
Rolled 9>>31322027>Win them slowly.Also so that we can get more powerful by the time the Realms takes a notice.
>>31322264It would prove them right about what exactly? I am not really up to date on their dogma.We have to do this one way or the other and there is seriously not a better spot for HSDD than this.Also, HSDD is not automatic, we still have to roll Social+Zenith for it to stick. They do have a chance to resist.
Rolled 1>>31322326We'd have to be sneaky about it, pretend to be a whore and sneak in with the other whores and seduce them then, not that I think it'll work, but hey it's worth a shot
Rolled 9>>31322027>Focused campaign of persuasion.
Rolled 6>>31322377>It would prove them right about what exactly? I am not really up to date on their dogma.That we're power-hungry mind-controllers who want to take over the world and violate everyone's free will and other rights. Using UMI in the presence of or against immaculates will just prove them right. Like, overwhelmingly.
Rolled 6>>31322396That's fucking retarded.
>>31322222Maybe we should ask Tia about her suggesting to change Maka's gender on occasion for sexy times with Amata. Though there wasn't a charm for that listed on her sheet, was there?
Rolled 7>>31322406It's not like they'll spare us if we don't use a UMI,
Rolled 7>>31322132>Focused campaign of persuasion.
>>31322425They're a level 3 hearthstone for that
Rolled 7>>31322428No, it will just incense the order even more if we do use it, and likely call in a Wyld Hunt MUCH faster. Also, it's literally lowering ourselves to exactly what they saw we are, which will hurt both future recruitment efforts and probably the way our allies see us.Basically, it's just more problem than solution, and shady as fuck to boot.
>>31322406I reject that frame. Also I have a problem with the notion that we should allow them to continue preaching that we are demons. To invert the frame, in real life terms they are like Nazi's and we are Jews.HSDD (or something more focused than it) is kind of like the bomb of persuasive weaponry and we are at war. Why should we restrict ourselves to the equivalent of fists when we can do better than that?
"...They think I'm a monster. And there's only one way to defeat that notion: show everyone that I'm not." You say. "Attacking them head-on... would just prove them right.""You're not the brightest ruler ever, but you have your good moments, Maka." She ribs you."I just don't have all the experience you had." Beat. "'Cause you're old.""Oh you little-"After the short ensuing scuffle between you and Amata is broken off, you lie back down on the bed side by side. Tia then lies down by your other side, sandwiching you between the two of them."...If we're married, does that mean I had sex with my children." The thought suddenly hits you. "Both of them.""Well, no blood relation:" Amata brushes it off. "Besides, still not at the same time, much less not at the same time plus their mother plus your husband all together.""A shame." Tia shakes her head with disapproval."...Is it fine, though?" You wonder.You feel Amata's tone going unusually cold and serious, taking a step away from her jokes up to a moment ago. "...Maka. I've spent years of my life in the Realm. I've seen... things, compared to which whatever orgy, whatever sexual deviancy you might have is NOTHING. I've seen, even done, things that make my skin crawl to this day."You feel her arms gently wrapping you with their cool touch."Maka. You're a good person. You're honest, and you're kind. I trust you.""Do you trust me?" Tia asks, pointing at herself."...Well, you seem to be even more of a pervert than Maka, but she trusts you, so I will too.">Talk about the Manse>Talk about the city>Talk about Mikahil and his architect friend>Talk about Samiel>Talk about Irene>Talk about Regis and Millian>Enough talking for now
>>31322461No, I with a right UMI we could get them on our side. We could have them keep the Wyld Hunt at bay actually if we play it right.
>>31322515Because HSDD isn't just "a bomb", it's the equivalent of using BCN (Biological/Chemical/Nuclear), which might win in the short term, but destroy us in the long term.
Rolled 1>>31322536>Talk about the Manselet's talk about what upgrades our Manse is going to get
Rolled 8>>31322461There's literally nothing we could do that wouldn't call the WH down on us except be killed, no matter what we do they're going to hate us, a UMI is a tool we can use to help us, it's only shady if we use it in shady ways, stopping a wyld hunt from murdering us Tia Amata and everyone we love? pretty good in my opinion
>>31322515If the Jews dropped an atomic bomb on Berlin, most of the world would have probably been ok with genocide. We do the equivalent, and the Realm will spare no expense in hunting us down and killing everyone who ever spoke to us
Rolled 5>>31322536>Talk about the Manse>Talk about Mikahil and his architect friendI feel like we could knock these out at the same time
Rolled 5>>31322515Because UMI is literally mind control. If you want to use a real-world analogy, it's like jews kidnapping nazis in order to use drugs to brainwash them into being their willing servants. In doing so, they would be PROVING THEIR OPPOSITION RIGHT by being a fucking monster just like them.
>>31322536>Talk about the Mansewhich leads to >Talk about Irenebecause I'm sure she would love to build the defenses on that thing
>>31322536>Talk about the cityHm, administrator, sorceress, solider, probably an elder DB and spent time in the realm. Amata sure has many hats.
>>31322560Actually, I kind of agree to that. I would like is something that does work like a bomb and we will probably need to get HSDD as a prerequisite to that.(Also, there is that supersex charm, which I am semi-serious about.)
Rolled 2>>31322536>Talk about the ManseTogether we have about 4 new manses, what can we do with those
>>31322536>Talk about the Manse>Talk about Mikahil and his architect friend>Talk about Ireneall of these can fit together pretty well
Rolled 2>>31322536>Talk about ManseWhile we are being productive
Guys, i think this discussion about UMI is pretty much capturing the essence of exalted.The bit about having power and what you do with it and taking the high road or the hard road seems to be one of the biggest neglected facets of exalted.So now we have a choice: To UMI or not to UMI. That is the question.
>>31322588Our goal is to stop them from summoning the Wyld Hunt. What you call mind control is merely a step up from persuasion.Using mind control in the battle of wills is not worse than using guns in war.
>>31322536>Talk about the Manse>Talk about Mikahil and his architect friend>Talk about IreneI think these three tie together pretty well.I'm sure Irene would be interested in helping when Mikahil and his friend build it.>>31322576The end being good doesn't mean the means aren't shady.UMI is shady as fuck, and there are other ways of building up our power base without calling the Wyld Hunt down on us.Such as not directly and openly antagonizing or brainwashing the Immaculates, for starters.Staying harmless and low key (well, relative to other Solars) is our best chance, imo.As long as we don't make any big waves, the Realm is too busy to care about us.
Rolled 8>>31322584Seconding this line of thought.
Rolled 9>>31322682Right. And my stance is that we should take the harder-but-honest route. Instead of taking the easy-button and mind-controlling the immaculate monks, we should approach the situation with honesty instead of shady tactics.I think that fits how we've played Maka so far.And yes, the question over whether to let power corrupt you is one of the main dramatic points of Exalted, and this situation is a perfect example of it.
>>31322687>As long as we don't make any big wavesLike marrying the Queen and making Tiger Warriors?
>>31322685>What you call mind control is merely a step up from persuasion.No...it's literally mind control. EF has made it clear which of the social charms are actually mind control and which are not.
>>31322536>Talk about the Manse>Talk about Mikahil and his architect friend>Talk about Irene>>31322685It isn't using guns in war. It's using a nuke in war. Which is something that is in fact, really fucked up
Rolled 10>>31322687>Staying harmless and low key (well, relative to other Solars) is our best chance, imo.>As long as we don't make any big waves, the Realm is too busy to care about us.It's a good thing we didn't marry a Queen, make an alliance with three Lunars, and plan to retake Gem, those would be some pretty big waves
Rolled 4>>31322687By marrying Amata and plotting against the Immaculate Order, we've already decided we're going to have the Wyld Hunt's attention, the only question is HOW are we going to fight them
>>31322685No anon. Using most social charms is a step up from PersuasionUMI is mind control. Whether you see it as good or evil, necessary or not, you erode and shape a person's being to your whim
Rolled 6>>31322685>What you call mind control is merely a step up from persuasion.No, there's a very important distinction.Social charms like Majestic Radiant Presence directly affect our ability to socialize. They give us a bonus, and enhance us internally.UMI like Husband-Seducing Demon Dance directly affects others' ability to resist. They affect someone else internally, and are a fundamentally external expression of power.One is making us better at being social. The other is inducing a change directly in someone else. The distinction is important, and shouldn't be downplayed, regardless of what our decision on the matter is.
>>31322729We haven't married the Queen yet, the alliance with the Lunars wasn't exactly publicly announced (as far as the general people are concerned, we just stopped the barbarian raids) and our "plans" to retake Gem aren't even plans so much as a desire to do so.But the important thing is staying low key compared to other Solars.The ones who start preaching the Unconquered Sun on every street corner, beat up Realm tax collectors and generally act like asses because "Solar stronk!".The realm has a priority hit list, and as long as we have at least one other person above us on it, we're good.
>>31322709I mean, it is mind control, but it also is a step up from persuasion. Hmmmm...I think we should put off this decision for now. EF said that we can buy charms whenever we want.We should first investigate them to get a sense of how difficult it will be to get Immaculates off our back.If we use a little brains, we might be able to subdue them with words by persuading them that the Wyld Hunt would destroy Tianna along with us.If they show no compassion, then we have all the reason to now use an UMI.
>>31322884it's completely different from persuasion see >>31322766
Rolled 6>>31322884>If they show no compassion, then we have all the reason to now use an UMI.I expect I'll still disagree if and when it comes to that - I would sooner kill them than mind-control them - but yes, let's table the discussion for now.
>>31322884I don't think we should even interact with them directly.I think it's a better idea to just change the general attitude of the population over time so the Immaculate Faith slowly loses it's foothold in Tianna and eventually just phases out peacefully.If we try to talk to them, they'll go full Anathema mode and send for help from the Realm because Satan just showed up in Church.Also, I don't think we should UMI anyone. For any reason. I don't think it fits with Maka's character.
Rolled 2>>31322884>Hmmmm...I think we should put off this decision for now.It's for the best for now at least
>>31322884>If they show no compassion, then we have all the reason to now use an UMI.Or they could show compassion in that although the society may get fucked up by dragging us down, they are saving the souls of every man woman and child here from an abomination against the natural order and a demon clad in the flesh of a dead woman.There is plenty of reason for the Immaculates to oppose us beyond being assholes. What with us literally being super mega satan to them.Though I do support debating it later, not now.
Rolled 6>>31322884I fully expect us to be able to convince the monks in Tianna we're okay, it's the Wyld Hunt that I know is going show that I'm worried about, but that's for later
>>31322720>>31322759>>31322766Sometimes that is necessary. Let's say we had the ability to use an UMI to turn hardened criminals into decent law abiding citizens. Using that UMI would be an expression of power and twisting them to our desire, but would also be a good thing to do, to turn evil people into good people.If the Immaculates call the Wyld Hunt, a lot of people will die needlessly and not only on our side. We have a chance to change that future to our desire.With normal persuasion we almost definitely will not be able to pull that off, the most we will be able to manage will be to turn the citizenry into our favor (which would summon the Wyld Hunt.)
Rolled 5>>31322964>Or they could show compassion in that although the society may get fucked up by dragging us down, they are saving the souls of every man woman and child here from an abomination against the natural order and a demon clad in the flesh of a dead woman.That's a good point. Immaculate dogma is that celestial exalts - anathema, like us - are demons who stole the power of the sun/moon, ate the soul of a heroic mortal, and are now living in the body of that now-dead person to fuck up the world. Anything we say to the effect of still being the same person is a lie, and even when it seems like we're doing good, it's only to pursue some wicked plan.From their perspective, they would be condemning the people of Tianna to mind control or worse by compromising with us.
>>31322996So you're saying the ends justifies the means?I disagree.
>>31322996you underestimate persuasion charms and overestimate the scale of UMI
Rolled 9>>31322996I'm sorry, but I disagree. With normal persuasion, we can get ourselves to the point where we're getting +3 dice and +1 success on every roll, and every time we succeed we do 6 points worth of intimacy building/damaging. That's two normal charms away. That's huge.On the other hand, UMI is literally mind control, and is not only an easy button but us directly doing away with someone's free will in order to reshape them into what we want.I'll support the former over the latter 100% of the time, and I would sooner kill a person immune to persuasion than mind control them. At least then they could reincarnate instead of being less-than-a-slave.
>>31323011Yeah. While there are plenty of asshole Immaculates...there are also plenty who are genuinely there to help people as best they can and believe they are giving rest to a tortured being.It's why I'd rather not a direct confrontation with them. Still, we'll burn that bridge when we come to it, I imagine.
By now you're all three tangled in the bedsheets in various state of undressment - and considering your choice of costume, you didn't have to go a long way to get there. Especially considering both Tia and Amata are both very involved in the idea of touching and teasing you.You're a bit surprised at Tia being so gentle with you though. You have to wonder if it's Amata or Millian and Regis doing this to her. You had the two young servants stay on a whim, but now you wonder if you should involve them all the way through, let them leave, or say nothing and let them decide if abandon the scene, be an audience, or be active participants on their own.Meanwhile, you multitask, bringing up with Amata the subject of Mikail's "friend"."Is he another... well, you know. Another Solar?""Honestly? I don't know. Might be, might be not. I think it's a she, though. Valeriana Kava. All I know is that she's a craftswoman with an interest in architecture and urban planning.""Mikahil knows a lot of people.""He sure does." She replies. "I think he used to be a member of a trading company, but he also travels a lot. I think he actively tries to get to know as many people as possible. Like he's gathering allies or contacts for some project of his. He has an enormous web of debts and favors in the entire West, probably all of Creation.""Wouldn't be surprised if someone like him knew other Solars besides you." Is Tia's opinion. "I wonder if his Lunar already found him.""Did you contact him?""I did just before coming here." Amata nods. "Been a while since I used that spell. He said he was in Coral. She'll contact this Valeriana and, if everything goes off without a hitch, be here in one week with her.""Provided she says yes." You point out."If she doesn't, could Irene do it?""Geomancy and magical architecture aren't her forte. We have some books she could use as reference, though. She could try, if this Valeriana person declines.">Talk about?
Rolled 8>>31323069Yeah, and aside from the chapters of the immaculate texts concerning exalts, it tends to be an overwhelmingly good and positive influence that puts out tons of helpful, correct information.
Rolled 3>>31316853The old thread is still up you everyone really wants to continue this conversation
>>31323031Justice changes according to power.Suppose you pass a beggar on the street and it starts clutching at your sides begging to not let him starve. Your reaction will be and should be different depending on how much money you have. If giving him money to eat means that you and your children will starve then I would say it is justified to kick him away.
>>31323096Agreed. While they DO bully gods a fair bit when they act up...the gods kinda deserve it a lot of the time in exalted. Case In Point Miss 'I wanna have human sacrifice!'
>>31323098Yes.Please, move this discussion about UMI out of the game thread.
>>31323102no. it is justified to tell him you can't help him because you're practically starving as well. Why the hell would you beat a starving defenseless person?
Rolled 4>>31323133Exactly. If there was a stronger Immaculate presence on the island, that shit would have never flown. Mind you, it's ultimately good for us that there isn't one, but, you know, context.
Rolled 4>>31323085>>Talk about Regis and MillianSubtly encourage them to participate, but don't force them
Rolled 4>>31323165seconding this
Rolled 6>>31323085I wonder what price we'll have to pay Valeriana.Anyway, time to fuck. We should still be resting until our wounds are recovered.
>>31323165This is good
Rolled 7>>31323085I think we had enough talking.Also let them decide what they will do on ther own.
Rolled 6>>31323085>Talk about?Is there anything else left?I think it's time for another threesome
Rolled 2>>31323165...I really don't want to bang a 13-year-old, honestly.
Rolled 3>>31323165Let's go with this
Rolled 3>>31323165I'd rather not, let them leave
Rolled 2>>31323165I like this idea
Rolled 1>>31323198I couldn't agree more. Let's just let them leave.
>>31323085>Talk about Regis and MillianJust let them know that they're allowed to join in on the fun if they want to. (Or have their own fun on the side?)It's up to them.
Rolled 9>>31323198me neither.Letting them watch, okay I can live with that, but actually having them participate? No.We should tell Millian to show Regis around
Rolled 1>>31323237>We should tell Millian to show Regis aroundHe does need butler training
Rolled 1>>31323165Gonna go with this
>>31323165This is fine
Rolled 9>>31323165I'd rather not. Regis is a child, and that's wildly inappropriate to do with a maid. Just let them go.
Rolled 10>>31323253>Regis is a childYeah, that'd honestly probably gross me out enough to just leave this thread and pick the quest back up tomorrow, or later this week.
>>31323165Let's go with this
Rolled 5>>31323085>Talk aboutAsk Millian to show Regis around and tell him what's expected of him as a servant.
>>31323165Dude, Regis is 13. Are you trying to get the QM banned?
Voting for giving them the boot. Prefer not to push it THAT far.
Rolled 1>>31323357I wouldn't have said anything if he hadn't offered to have them join
Rolled 7>>31323165You want to have a child participate? Fuck that, they can watch or leave, not join in. I works rather not turn this into pedophile quest, thanks.
Rolled 8>>31323165this is a horrible idea. Let them watch or throw them out
>>31323165I wasn't gonna be the one who said it, but since you brought it up
>>31323376Not answering my question. Child Porn is a permaban.
>>31323357>Are you trying to get the QM banned?you are not serious right?
Rolled 7>>31323237Yeah, he does need a tour, doesn't he? I second that idea.
>>31323430>>31323357text is completely acceptable
Rolled 8>>31323430No I don't want him banned, but he DID offer, and I'm not against it
Rolled 10>>31323357>all those ERP threadsText is okay, plus he's going to fade to black like he always does
Rolled 8Wait, so the playerbase is making Maka a pedophile now? ...what the actual fuck?
>>31323479The ERP threads get shitposted and autosaged to hell whenever the word "shota" so much as appears in the OP. I would prefer not to skirt that line with this quest
You guys are looking at this the wrong way. Regis should probably head out if things are going to get fade to blackey, as even watching it is probably a little iffy.I mean, we could theoretically make him mentally mature with that Mental Training Charm we don't have yet, but the philosophical questions of mental versus emotional maturity seem like they're outside the scope of the thread.Let the maid stay.
>>31323514Look at the votes idiots. She is not becoming a pedho. Also stop judging the Exalted World with your own Real World Morals.
>this threadGuys, I generally remain silentbut this time I actually got an erection thinking about beautiful exotic women having sex all togheter, mothers, stepmothers and daughtersI mean, its a fucking huge erectionjust EF, I beg of you to avoid any faux pas
"Oh, well... What's next?" You roll about in bed, lying half over Tia. After a playful bite to her ear, you continue: "...The festival in three days, Mikahil coming down in a week.""Hopefully by then Talon will be back in shape and we can talk about abyssals too." Amata adds, piling up, most of her clothes discarded by now.Tia pops her head from under you. You swear sometimes she moves like she doesn't actually have bones. "Aren't they joining us?" She asks, staring at the two servants."You're scaring them, dear." Amata pushes her head down into the mattress. "They're too young, besides.""They're not." She points out.The two individuals in question mostly look confused by what's going on."Too young to participate but not to watch...?" You wonder aloud."Now, now." Amata giggles. "If they're going to learn sex ed from you and Tia, they're going to grow up with some serious problems.""It's to late for that, your highness." Is Regis' slightly smartass reply."Well... since you'll probably need a maid or two, Maka, how about I transfer Millian permanently to your service?" Amata winks. "For starters, why don't you go and help finish unloading the ship?""Well then." They both stand up and bow impeccably. "By your leave, madams..."And leave as fast as you can, followed by your playful laughter."Ah, youth." She Amata sighs. "Even as mortals, they'll have a lot of time to learn on their own.""NOW you're really speaking like an old lady." You point out."Why you-"(cont.)
>>31323514No, the playerbase is saying that Maka wouldn't mind if Regis chooses to join, but the decision is up to him (meaning EF).Personally, I'm hoping he'll get flustered as all hell and run away with the maid and they'll both do their best to forget their crazy employers while bonding, leading to blushing glances and hand holding.
>>31323552>Faux pasLike incest, you mean?
Rolled 7>>31323541Looks like there's more votes for pedo than not.Also, you're taking out your ass. Fucking underaged people is seen as perfectly fucked up in this setting. They went out if their way to make bisexuality the norm, age of consent an actual thing, and so forth while designing this setting's mores.
>>31323514Pretty much no one actually wants that. Maka only considered it because her brain was in sex land and men aren't the only ones that get dumb when they're horny.The thread's reaction is her going "Oh wait, nope, bad Maka,
Rolled 5>>31323580>pile of sexy exalted womenThis is what dreams are made of
>>31323601Like pushing it too much and without taste
Rolled 4>>31323580we need to get Amata to say "ara ara" the next time she goes into wise old woman mode
Rolled 3>>31323580I wonder how Amata will react when she sees our other outfits tassels, has anyone other than Silk and Tia seen them?
Rolled 5Guys, when are we due to go get gangbanged by the elementals? We don't want to put it off too long for fear of them flooding the harbour and sinking ships.
Rolled 1>>31323675We also have to give Yaraon that sacrifice
Rolled 8>>31323675It's been about a day since we won calm down, we can do it tomorrow, then spend a day preparing for Smoke's festival>>31323694and after the festival we can do this.
Rolled 1>>31323694Right, so, what's our timetable on all that?
>>31323675We don't want to forget about it, but I don't think we need to rush. They did get an island and a manse in addition to our promise. If we wanted to get it out of the way, though, I guess we could always take a dip in the Tianna harbor before Smoke's festival.
Rolled 7>>31323713It's going to need to wait at least a week or so, we need to spend this week training our pirate captians
Rolled 6>>31323713Two days, actually, and I thought the original agreement was to do it immediately after winning the war. I don't want us to be at risk of accidentally snubbing the entire ocean.
>>31323580>"Why you-"Hm, is this the part where Amata exacts retribution and Maka goes 'Thank you mistress, may i please have another?'Pretty hot.
Rolled 10>>31323755I'm fine with Maka loving being dominated in bed. Seems to be what's happening, what with Tia, Sam, and now Amata. At the very least, Red Sonja it
>>31323531>Emotional Maturity Nurturing Prana
>>31323724There still the immaculate order situation. That gas to be taken care of BEFORE the festival. Or at least something should be done about stopping them ruining the part where Maka dances. I shudder to think about Tia's reaction to the oiled up dancing being interrupted. Will it blend?: Immaculate preacher edition.
Rolled 2>>31323813Oiled up dancing in tassels
>>31323784Not really? She seems to like being dominant with Tia.
Rolled 9>>31323753I can't find a specific date beyond after we beat up the fae
>>31323849>>31323784We already know Maka goes both ways, three ways, upside down ways and full ways.
I've been thinking about what sort of powers we could give our manse.We could make it a Temple Manse, which would really draw the Sun's attention and prevent enemies of him from regaining essence while withing it.We could also add defensive powers like Integrated Essence Artillery and Traps.
>>31323784Seems to vary based on the person and situation. We're quite dominant with Silk, We switch things up with Tia and are Samiel's toy. Not sure about Irene and Amata
[1 HP recovered]This has probably been the least restful period of time, no matter how long, that you have ever spent in a bed.Like you need to get out of bed and go to bed.You feel your blood pressure almost through the floor, and your muscles creak and ache and tremble even as you merely lift your head and crane your neck to look out of the window flooded with light. Almost blacking out, you notice the midday sun greeting you.You entered this bed with Tia and Amata just after lunch, so barely after noon. And you're sure you've spent more than a few minutes here."...has it been twenty-four hours?" It slowly dawns on you, as you look around.Tia, Amata, Samiel, Irene and Dancing Smoke are clinging to you from all sides in a disheveled pile of contorted bedsheets and blankets, all snoring peacefully in your same overcrowded bed."...How." You just mumble, your confused brain slowly recalling the images one after another.Tia opens an eye. "Are you complaining?"Still trying to cope, and frankly feeling a bit surprised by her, you just mutter a startled: "...no."You mentally count up to three. On the count of three, just as predicted, Tia rolls over and straddles above you, calling "Second round~".(cont.)

Rolled 3>>31323954Where's that?
>>31323938Everything went better than expected. At this rate we will need Tireless' Hero Soul to cope with all this exertion...We should really be training up our captains before they leave.
Rolled 9>>31323938I was going to ask if we needed that charm to reduce fatigue and exhaustion before we meet the water court, but I think we'll be fine-ish
>>31324000Oadenol's CodexTEMPLE MANSEPriesthood of the appropriate deityThe manse honors a god to the very roots of itsdesign, celebrating the deity’s greatness. Every inchof its architecture is a prayer. Servants or spawn ofenemy powers—for example, Celestial Exalted, in the case of Abyssal Temples, or raksha in CelestialTemples—can sense this and are anathema to it.They cannot naturally recover Essence or Willpowerpoints while within range. If they foolishly attemptattunement, they’ll suffer three unsoakable levels ofaggravated damage from internal Essence burns.Players receive one free bonus success on any rollfor prayers issued to the deity from within the manse’sconsecrated walls. Furthermore, if a priest of the appropriategod makes a Resources 5 sacrifi ce—or sacrifi cessomething otherwise priceless and powerful—the godreceives a great boon: concentrated ambrosia in theshape of the sacrifi ce. This is often enough to provoke aresponse even from the Celestial Incarnae, who mightprovide a moment of wisdom or token blessing
>>31324030That does sound pretty nice and appropriate for our Zenith. Wouldn't be too nice for Silk, though.

You turn it right before stumbling out of the bed. "One day, mark my words, Tia, one day, I will find a way to satisfy even you. I don't know how many people I'll have to involve, how many charms I'll have to learn, What artifacts to use or how much essence to spend, but one day I'll find a way to make YOU have enough."Truly an epic motivation, worthy of the Solars of old>Ask about working for me>Ask about Regis>Ask about last night

Before passing out, she manages to grab and give a light squeeze to Amata's upper thigh, gurgling in her half-awake state something like "mrrrhghh makaaa" before finally slipping back into unconsciousness.To that stimulation, the already-fast-asleep queen responds by an almost unintelligible "mmm.... won't... fit..." before going silent.Well, looks like you don't have to worry about your first two wives not getting along. Or is that a husband and a wife, or two wives?You'll have time to figure that out. Feeling like the winner just by virtue of being the only one awake and walking at the early morning hour of noon, you briefly consider the situation....You'll take a bath first, and then have a big... you're not sure what you should call it, even. Lunch? Breakfast? Yesterday's dinner that you missed? Those.Millian is waiting outside of your room, dutifully, like a good maid. Sure, she was reading a book, but you can't fault her for that. She probably had no idea when you'd wake up."Had fun?" She asks. This might be a bit too sarcastic for a mere servant, but you decide that you don't care right now, and respond with a honest: "Very. You?"She looks sideways, surprised by the direct answer and riposte. "...You smell like volcanic ash."You sniff the air. "...I wonder why."She sighs. "...Bath?""Bath."

Rolled 3God damn it, someone archived the other thread. Everyone vote it down if you want to never remember what happened there.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Tianna
Rolled 3>>31324227the every night gangbang, or one of the special ones
Rolled 4>>31324274The one we promised the ocean
Rolled 3>>31324274The one where we get gangbanged by the entire ocean. We need to know if we need to keep to a schedule on that, or if we can blow them off indefinitely. Other stuff is only more important if they're not going to flood the city because we missed a deadline.
Rolled 2>>31324227I couldn't find a specific date other than after we deal with the fae, I might have missed it because I feel like we did set a specific date, we probably want to do it at least before the festival though
Rolled 1>>31324299we should do that pretty soon, before we go to fight the Lintha. And we should bring Tia this time, to avoid another "Travesty of epic proportions"
Rolled 4>>31324299I wonder if we could hold it off until we build them that temple manse, I'm sure sex in there would make it extra special or something
>>31324334>Tia vs. the Ocean...Truly an epic struggle.
>>31324185Ask her if she knows where our captains are.
Rolled 10>>31324354Do it to christen the manse. As soon as it's fully built, fuck the entire ocean
Rolled 3>>31324354>hold it off until we build them that temple manseManses take years - at the fastest - to complete even for exalts, barring an EXTREMELY obscure Celestial Circle Sorcery spell.
>>31324354Obviously we need to just marry the ocean as well.
Rolled 6>>31324417Oh god no. The ocean will drown the rest of our harem - or try, anyway. Water elementals are notoriously clingy and have a long and proud history of drowning sailors because they're too jealous to let them fuck anyone else.
>>31324030So, if we build them this, do we still get a cool stone we can use to power essence cannons?
"So." You ask her, stepping gently into the tub of smoking hot water Millian prepared for you. "You don't mind working for me from now on?""N- not really." Her voice wavers for a moment. "I mean, there's already a surplus of maids and servants here at the castle. Amata isn't a spoiled queen and she takes care of herself, so our workload is really light. Many of us don't have much to do. Makes sense to shift some of us, really." She gives you a suspicious look while selecting what scrub to use. "You ARE still going to pay me, right?""As long as I can afford it." You reply, soaking in the water, You feel life slowly returning to you."It's not like I'm a millionaire." She jokes back, passing a hand on your back. "...Someone did a work on your back.""Oh, that was friendly fire." You mention."Really.""Mostly me being stupid and making the wrong call in the heat of the moment." You admit with a bit of shame."It's amazing how fast you heal." She picks a tough-looking scrub and fills it with soapy water. "You wouldn't consider yourself a person with delicate skin, right?""I might take offense to thaaAAAAtt." Your reply is almost interrupted by the not at all gentle touch of her brush on your sides. "Don't worry, I'll use a softer one for your wounds." You can't help but think she's enjoying this as some sort of subtle vengeance."So... Regis, huh." You mention."What about him." She's immediately on the defensive."He's cute, right?" You wink."You're-" She was probably about to say something unflattering, but holds back her tongue. "How many times have you defiled him already?">Don't dodge the question!>I saved him for you.>Oh, nevermind.>I didn't!>Countless times.>Come on, be honest.>Other?
Rolled 10>>31324454Sure. It'll just be one of their design instead of ours. Normally you can guide the type of stone you get.
Rolled 6>>31324463>I saved him for you.I thought it would be cute
>>31324463>I saved him for you.>Don't dodge the question!
Rolled 5>>31324463>I didn't!He's a child. He's seen some shit, but to be fair, I think that pales in the face of staring directly into the Wyld, which he also did. Dude's a badass, but still a kid.
Rolled 10>>31324463>Countless times. (jokingly, let her wonder if we're serious)>Come on, be honest.
Rolled 4>>31324463>Maids answer first
>>31324473>they choose the design for an item we received for fucking themIt'll totally not be a dildo.
>>31324454yes, all manses produce a heartstone and get some additional powers.Theoretically, you could sacrifice or weaken the hearstone for more manse powers, but it's usually a bad idea
Rolled 6>>31324463>I didn't!
Rolled 1>>31324463>>Countless times.>>Come on, be honest.
>>31324463>>Countless times.>>Come on, be honest.

Rolled 10>>31324463>>Don't dodge the question!
>>31324463>why do you want to know? jealous?
>>31324463"I'll admit that he's seen me naked, but that was less seduction and more he stole my clothing."or>I didn't!>I saved him for you.
>>31324463>I didn't!>I saved him for you.
Rolled 3>>31324548I'd be offended if it wasn't, as it would mean they obviously weren't paying attention
Rolled 8>>31324463>>Don't dodge the question!
"Oh, yes, mhhh..." You start making a show of counting on your fingers, quickly going past ten. You break in a chuckle before she can smack you with the brush to let her know you're joking. "...Come on. I didn't."She takes a sigh of relief."I totally will once he gets old enough, though." You rib her."You're terrible." She sighs, pouring shampoo on your hair."It just means you have to grab him first." You suggest.No reply, as she begins to scrub your head."...Be honest with me." You smile."He's a half-savage. He doesn't know how to behave in a proper court environment, much less civilized society. He's basically a... a little pirate.""Do you hate pirates?"The question catches her by surprise. "N- not really."You smile smugly."...He's not really cute. But... I guess he can be a little bit cool sometimes." You guess she must be thinking about something he said or did yesterday, and that she'll NEVER tell you. So you relax, soaking in the water again, tossing a glance at the book Millian was reading, left in a corner on a chair:"The Adventures of Captain Eagle and the Pirates of the Golden Isle (book 4)"(cont.)
Rolled 1>>31324548They don't get to be that specific, unfortunately. They more choose the direction of the power, which will be water-themed.
>>31324916>"He's a half-savage. He doesn't know how to behave in a proper court environment, much less civilized society.that just means you have to show him how.> that she'll NEVER tell you.we could ask Regis
Rolled 2>>31324557Unless you want a truly magnificent fortress, of course. You can get pretty close to unassailable pretty quickly by getting rid of stuff like hearthstones and amenities.
After your good bath (made complete by some more Millian complaining about things) and a quick but hearty meal you're left to wonder what to do in this nice afternoon.>Wait for someone (who?)>Go meet the captains>Go find Regis>Spend time with Millian>Return to bedroom>Other?
>>31325011>Go meet the captainsTime to figure out who gets training first.
>>31325011>Go meet the captains>Go find RegisGrab them all and begin training - I'm sure they'd like to get back to their crews soon.>Spend time with MillianInvite her to watch.
Rolled 6>>31325011>Go meet the captainsLet's get that training startedBy the way how much time before they have to leave
Rolled 6>>31325011Time to give Regis and the captains some training. We might also want to give Millian some Zenith to help her score with the dashing Regis.
Water hearstone usually help with manipulating water, poison or help with martial arts. There's also this:STONE OF GENDER TRANSFORMATION (MANSE •••)This peach-colored, almond-shaped crystal enablesits bearer to change gender at will. This transformation isinstantaneous and can be made as a reflexive action
>>31324463>I didn't!>Come on, be honest.>I saved him for you."You ARE somewhere around his age, right?"He's a little too young for Maka.
Rolled 9>>31325011>Go find the ocean spirit (I think her name was Flow) to figure out when the want you, and make sure it doesn't conflict with anything, especially Smoke's festival> Then >>31325042
>>31325011>Go meet the captains>Go find Regiswe can start their training.ask Millian if she wants to watch
Rolled 7Just want to remind everyone that Regis currently has the Physical of a very fit grown man. I'm betting that's why she's into him. A boy her age with strength and coordination like that? That's a panties-soaker.
>>31325075I'm more interested with:JEWEL OF DAANA’D (MANSE •••)The bearer of this watery, dark-blue sphere gainsa special rapport with water elementals. When shesummons water elementals, her spell or thaumaturgicalritual takes her only half as long and costs half as manymotes of Essence (count every mote spent as two). Thebearer also gains three dice for all rolls to influencewater elementals, including binding or banishing them.These benefits do not apply to gods of water.Manses aspected to other elements may produceanalogous jewels.Flow's an elemental, not a god, right?
>>31325011>Go meet the captains>>31325033Whoever leaves the soonest.Also, we should actually put Millian on the Tiger Training list
Rolled 3>>31325011>Go meet the captains>Go find Regis
>>31325075We have to get this eventually.
>>31325139>Also, we should actually put Millian on the Tiger Training listninja maid? Not sure she would agree to that
Rolled 3>>31325075There's also a rating 2 water one that boosts your social/mental defense by one point. I'm hoping that's what we get from the water temple. And since we're hopefully getting a celestial artificer/sorceress in on the big one, I'm hoping we can change that to Solar aspected, along with personally consecrating it as a temple to the sun.
Rolled 7>>31325167If Tia learn that knack that lets her transform other people she could turn us male whenever she wanted to
>>31325178>consecrating it as a temple to the sun.we have to make it a temple to the waterspirits, that was part of our deal
Rolled 8>>31325130We're not a sorcerer, so it's a moot point.
Rolled 3>>31325198I think he's talking about the 3 dot demense
>>31325201>The bearer also gains three dice for all rolls to influence water elementalsI assume this also applies to social combat
Rolled 2>>31325176Hey, we can train up Zenith that way too. A Zenith 3 maid could be useful. Not as useful as an Eclipse 3 maid, but still.
>>31325176Convincing people to do useful work is what being a leader is about to me.
Rolled 10>>31325176All maids are already secretly ninjas, didn't you know?
Rolled 5>>31325198We have one rating 2 one and one rating 3 one. I'm hoping that the elementals score us a tranquil mind stone at their temple, and that the rating 3 one can be made into a solar temple.
>>31325176Then we can convince her. Also, i don't think she would be so much against it.
>>31325192Let's ask Tia to develop that when we have some private time.
Rolled 7>>31325217You're assuming wrong. It's for actual summoning sorcery/thaumaturgy.
>>31325277it says all rolls to influence water elementals. Why shouldn't an attempt to convince them of something be an attempt to influence them?
>>31324916>"He's a half-savage. He doesn't know how to behave in a proper court environment, much less civilized society. He's basically a... a little pirate."That's why she needs to civilize him....The same way Enkidu got civilized.
Rolled 3>>31325296By going full Ishtar?
Rolled 1>>31325011>>31325042I like this idea.Train the captains and Regis and invite Millian to watch.>>31325296>Enkidu>The Epic of GilgameshYou. I like you.MillianxRegis is my OTP.
Accompanied by Millian, you head down to the docks, where you find your three captains in one of those stereotypical seedy pubs clouded with smoke and filled with tough-looking customers.You see them playing cards around a table. Quint, who is facing the door, notices you entering and waves at you. Seems like they're kicking back and relaxing a bit, probably enjoying their new money judging by the amount of empty glasses on that table.Oddly enough, Millian doesn't seem particularly intimidated by the atmosphere, although she IS somewhat nervous. Regis isn't here... you guess he must be on the ship.You draw a lot of attention, by the way, as you enter the establishment with your gossamer tabard on.Almost everyone either recognizes you, or already heard about you from the crew of your ship, or doesn't recognize you but decides to leave you alone anyway. Only one seaman, clearly half-drunk, staggers up from the counter and puts a hand on your shoulder with familiarity."Hey... damn, girl... you fine. D'ya wanna- d'ya wanna drink? It's on me." He mumbles, his other hand groping under your tabard.>Knock him out (a lot).>Knock him out (with minimal collateral damage).>Intimidate him.>Ignore him.>Play along.>Other?
>>31325296That's so appropriate it hurts.You're good people.
>>31325415>Knock him out (with minimal collateral damage).
Rolled 8>>31325415>Play along.Temperance 1
Rolled 5>>31325415>Knock him out (with minimal collateral damage)Nope
>>31325415Is he cute? Useful?I vote we inspire him to become the sort of person we would have sex with. Reveal to him the path to being one of the world's heroes and change his life forever!
Rolled 3>>31325415Explain that he's drunk and that he needs a nap. With Talking to the Heart.
Rolled 8>>31325415>Knock him out (with minimal collateral damage).We have standards.
Rolled 1>>31325415>Play along.Go wait for me in the back and I'll be right there
>>31325415Can we just politely push him away? There's no real peaceful option here.Failing that.>Knock him out (with minimal collateral damage).>>31325452Temperance: NoStandards: Yes
Rolled 6>>31325415>Play along.
>>31325465This is reasonable. He's just being friendly. No reason to hurt him.>>31325460This also works.
>>31325460We still need to fix Captain Nemo, let alone this guy.
>>31325415>gently let him down
>>31325415>Play along till the a nearby wall/column>smash him out on it
>>31325511We can always use more extras and he can make up for his rude gesture by becoming useful. It's not like we can run out of Tiger Training.
Rolled 9>>31325490I was joking about the Temperance 1, but isn't the oint of it that you DON'T have standards
Rolled 4>>31325465I'm on board with this. It's situations like these that social charms were made for, and our first essence in a scene doesn't flare our banner according to EF.
(about training, i'll also point out that if you train a single person it lasts only a day, because you can follow him or her very closely. if you try to extend the training benefits to a group of person, the time for a training becomes a week. Just reminding.)
>>31325465I like this. Let's not be stereotypical about this. Be polite and don't use the poor man to make a point to the bar. We don't have anything to prove.
Rolled 7>>31325571Let's go with Alexis this time, Alexis was Captain Nemo right?
Rolled 6>>31325557No, the point is that your don't have self control. You can have Temperance 1 and still only have the finest things. You just end up screwing an entire royal family, gods, and exalts for a full day instead of filthy pirates.
>>31325571so if we're training less than 7 people, it's better to give everyone an individual training session?
>>31325557Temperance is more like self control, iirc.So it's not that you don't have standards, you just don't say no when someone offers something you want. (Like dat Tia ass.)
Rolled 1>>31325465This one is nice, let's go with this
Rolled 10>>31325594Seems that way, which is fine with me. It prevents us from trying to train people past their personal limits as part of a group.
>>31325571What is the maximum size of the group? Also if we are training only three of them, would it make sense to raise one dot every two days or something?
>>31325594Yes, one at a time.>>31325593There are no virtues in this quest. Your remarks about Maka being "temperance 1" are incorrect.You can joke about it, but remember that you might confuse people who are new to the thread or the mechanics.Maka is as temperate or intemperate as you want her to be. Same for her standards.
>>31325592No, Captain Nemo was one of the guys on the Bloodshark who was ranting about the Storm Mothers.We decided we like that guy.
Rolled 8>>31325465Sounds good. And if that fails, we knock him out. Good compromise?
>>31325639and we made him a captain
Rolled 3>>31325627The maximum size is only limited by how many people can see and hear us to follow along.
>>31325502I was going to say that he's being a little TOO friendly, but this is Maka we're talking about. And if we're leaning towards her being Compassionate, then she'd probably understand the plight of the lonely sailor.Seconding a suave social move, with TttH if need be.
Rolled 5>>31325415politely turn him down.If that fails, knock him out
Rolled 10>>31325639Right, that's Alexei. We printed him to captain after Tia ate the sharkman.
>>31325655He's only a captain once we get him a submarine.Then it's his job to fill it with bitches.
>>31325662Maybe we should find a Twilight and have him invent television.
Rolled 4>>31325688we gave him a ship already
>>31325684Oh, is that him?Are you sure?
>>31325639He was Alexis, yes.>>31325627There is no fixed maximum size, but you need to be able to order the entire group (which must be a coherent, established group) around and train them all together, which means you might need, for large groups, specific spaces, specific structures, to be clearly heard by everyone, to have clear line of sight to everyone, discipline, silence, stuff like uniforms and such.In general, I'd say that without specific infrastructure you can train up to a Wing of troops (200-300) at the same time.
Rolled 10>>31325688No, he's already captain of the sharkman's ship. Now we need to upgrade him to submarine. Honestly, these three captains are probably going to be our three admirals someday. One in charge of the normal navy, one of the airships, and one of our fleet of submarines. Alexei will have the submarines, of course.
Rolled 4>>31325709Completely sure, yes. He's also the one that Irene suspects of being a woman crossing.
Rolled 4>>31325736We should meet Tianna's Navy dragonblood, I think she mentioned having one, him leading our three crews of Tiger Warriors ought to fuck up some people real good
>>31325752...Odd that a might-be-a-woman would espouse those opinions so loudly.
Rolled 1>>31325767Might be worth introducing them, sure.
Rolled 8>>31325794Might be that she's just very heterosexual and left behind the land to avoid exactly what she felt Maka and Tia fell into. Gives her even more of a reason to hate the Storm Mothers too, especially if she's just cross-dressing rather than Tya.
Rolled 10>>31325767I think Irene said their were about a dozen Dragonblooded on Tianna, and one was in charge of the navy, yes
[Talking to the Heart] [Essence: 4/5]You look the sailor straight in the eyes."...You're drunk. Go home."He frowns. "I'm not drunk."You gently push him and watch him stumble as he tries to keep his footing."...Alright. Mebbe you're right."A bit saddened by the turn of events, he walks out of the pub, and you join your captains at the table without a problem."Hey, boss." Alexei nods."Rubeni here was getting his ass smashed at Scientific Startree." Quint points out.You sit down, and snatch a sip of rum from his glass. "...What's a Scientific Startree?""Well, it's like Startree, but every odd pass is counterclockwise, every even pass is clockwise, and every prime-numbered turn the dealer starts with his first and last cards revealed. Plus, there's a fixed go-down point cap at 7000 and a bonus draw every time you go to the resolution phase and any one at the table reveals the same card you have revealed.""...By the way, Startree is like Starseed, but with two bonus cards, an extra draw after the first round of bets, and a few extra winning hands that are not legal Starseed winning hands normally, like having seven figures and at least one elephant, or if you have no winning hand but the sum of all he points in your hand is exactly fifteen. Quint's been teaching me since yesterday.""...I don't really know how to play cards. I was wondering, though...">Ask how are things>Ask about training>Ask about Regis>Other?
Rolled 9>>31325877>Ask about training>Ask about Regis
Rolled 9>>31325877>>Ask about training>>Ask about Regis
Rolled 8>>31325877>Ask how are things>Ask about training
>>31325877>Ask how are things>Ask about training>Ask about RegisWe're getting a general status report and then we offer to train them and their men.Where does Regis fit into this?Eh, might as well ask about him too while we're at it.Also, that sounds like an awesome game.I'd like a full rulebook for it, kthx?
Rolled 2>>31325877>Ask how are things>Ask about training>Ask about Regis
>>31325967Remember, most of their men are in Freeport, and they're here with a skeleton crew. You could train just those, but it'd still take a week, and you could return to Freeport and rejoin with the rest of your men in two days' time instead.
Rolled 1>>31326032Scratch training off of this
>>31326042Offering to train them doesn't mean we have to train them NOW.
>>31325877Ask him whether he's serious about fucking up Storm Mothers some time in the future. We're working on figuring out what our plans are at the moment.
Rolled 2>>31326069We already said we'd train them before we set sail
>>31326042We want to get the captains up to at least 3/3 physical dawn, and I think we have enough time for that if all of them are at like 2/2 which wouldn't surprise me as heroic mortals
Rolled 4>>31326098we're training the captains, not their crews
>>31326098Okay in that case, let's just start with them.The crew can wait.
Rolled 6>>31326111>>31326129Why waste time doing that when, as >>31326042 said, we could wait two days and train the whole bunch?
Rolled 7>>31326148because training them individually takes 1 day per person and there's only 3 of them?
>>31326148Because raining everyone will take the whole week and only raise one stat by one
Rolled 8>>31326163>>31326193Smoke's festival is in two days, we need to spend one day in the ocean and I bet we won't get anything else done the day of the festival, so when would we train the three captains? We could, at best, train one.
Rolled 4>>31325877>"Well, it's like Startree, but every odd pass is counterclockwise, every even pass is clockwise, and every prime-numbered turn the dealer starts with his first and last cards revealed.

Quint's been teaching me since yesterday."Jesus fucking christ, I would love to play a gambling-focused exalt in the West. Supposedly there's more casinos there than in the rest of Creation combined. It's like the Old West meets Las Vegas, in terms of gambling....just putting it out there.
Rolled 4>>31326215it's only 4 hours per day, actually
Rolled 8>>31326261>it's only 4 hours per day, actuallyWhich means that, if we spend 12 hours, we could give each of them a +1.
>>31326280We can probably actually do this if we don't do anything else those two daysWell if EF is okay with it
>>31326280How about we get Tireless Hero Soul?
"So, you might have noticed me training Regis during the trip." You start off."Yes." Rubel nods. "What's up with that?" They all seem interested."Among my various magical powers, I think I've managed to develop one that allows me to train people at a far faster pace." You explain. "I've been trying it on him first, to see if it works."They all nod and mumble like that explains something."...what?" You wonder.Rubeni smiles. "We noticed when he was helping us unload the ship to bring some of our haul to the market to sell. He's just a kid, but he had no trouble carrying as much stuff as an adult. We thought something was wrong.""He arm-wrestled me." Alexei adds, clenching his hand. "He wanted to arm-wrestle me, and he actually won two out of three."The other two captains look at him and grin."What.""You're not exactly Captain Beef-Arm, Alexei." Quint takes a last sip of rum."...Alright, maybe not, but I have ten years on that kid.""Anyway, if this really works well, it might give us and out crews a huge edge on..." Quint mumbles. "...pretty much anyone else on the sea.""Do you happen to have a First Age ship in your pocket too, boss?" Rubeni jokes."Give me some time, still working on it." You reply. "...Any side-effects?" Quint asks.You never thought about that. "...I don't THINK there are any, but...""Why don't you try on Regis a bit? See how it turns out for him. Besides, we left most of our men in Freeport.">I'll continue training Regis for now>I'd like to train (Quint/Rubeni/Alexei)>I have someone else in mind (who?)>Change subject (what?)>Leave
Rolled 5>>31326311I repeat>Smoke's festival is in two days, we need to spend one day in the ocean and I bet we won't get anything else done the day of the festivalWhere do you get that we have 2 free days?
>>31326280Isn't there a limit on how long they can continuously train before they get KO'ed by their exertions?
Rolled 1>>31326311Yup, it would have to be the focus of those two days if we do that. Otherwise, we could spend eight hours one day to give two of them a +1 and four hours the next to give the other a +1. Basically, it's just a matter of if we want to give each of them a +2 or each of them a +1 - and of how busy we are.>>31326334Could be a good idea.
Rolled 3>>31326311I wonder how much we have to do while they're training. Could we read a book or something?
Rolled 8>>31326342>>I'll continue training Regis for now>>I'd like to train (Quint/Rubeni/Alexei)The offer stands for each of them. Explain that we thing we've got physical ability, combat, tactics, endurance, and leadership covered. You know, if they're interested.
>>31326348>and of how busy we are.Tia.
Rolled 5>>31326342>I'd like to train all three of you
>>31326342>I'd like to train AlexeiI'd like to take a vote here on Tireless Hero Soul. With it we not need to sleep and could spend the next week putting the captains, Regis and Millian through a training regiment.
Rolled 1>>31326347Yeah, four hours apiece per day. Which is why we train one, then the next, then the next. Four hours apiece.
Rolled 10>>31326389>>31326342>I'll continue training Regis for nowWe DO NOT have the time to train themas I have said twice>>31326215>>31326345
>>31326342>I'd like to train AlexeiIf they really don't want to we could do Regis
>>31326424yes we do.
>>313263424 hours Alexei, 4 hours Quint, 4 hours Rubeni, 4 hours Regis, 4 hours Millian = 20 hours.We could spend the last four hours having sex with Tia. I am voting for Tireless Hero Soul
>>31326342>I'll continue training Regis for now>I'd like to train Alexei"Good idea, but I'm also inducting Captain Noodle-Arms here. No offense Alexei, but even if you have the most obedient crew you are the newest captain in my fleet and I want to make sure you can pummel your way thought anything you can't talk your way out of. Plus crews like to see their captains pull their own weight and kick ass, raises moral and all that."We can't leave things with her having lost multiple armwrestling matches to Regis.
>>31326464We're down to 4 essense, we can only do 4 people
>>31326280Doesn't work like that. The 4-hour-per-day limit is on you, not them.
Rolled 10>>31326455>>31326455HOW? We have half a day today, we need to spend tomorrow in the ocean, and Smoke's festival is the day after that, when do we have enough time to train 4 people?
Rolled 5>>31326488>Doesn't work like that. The 4-hour-per-day limit is on you, not them.Ah. So it's either one person per day, or a group for a week. Understood. In that case, consider my vote for continuing with Regis until he's totally twinked out.
>>31326506>we need to spend tomorrow in the oceanDid we ever set a date for that?
Rolled 3>>31326486>We're down to 4 essense, we can only do 4 peopleTraining people doesn't cost essence.>>31326523No, but I agree, it should be sooner rather than later.
Rolled 2>>31326523I'd like to do it as soon as possible so as not to test Flow's goodwill, it's the one thing they asked for (though it's not all the ended up getting)
>>31326342>I'll continue training Regis for nowSo far the only side effect is a slight risk of waking up covered in bitches. Risk may be increasing with each training session.>>31326523No specific date beyond "after we beat the Raksha", and we have beaten the Raksha.We should handle it as soon as possible since we don't want the ocean to suddenly metaphorically fuck us because we didn't literally fuck it.
>>31326517Training one of the captains would be more beneficial. We could train Regis after they are gone.
>>31326342>Train AlexeiWe can train Regis while they're gone, and assuming we don't have to be present for the whole estical we can find 4 hours a day to train the captains
Rolled 6>>31326342>I'd like to train AlexeiWe can train Regis later

"Well, Regis worked out fine. You said so yourselves." You reply, sounding very confident. "What do you say, Alexei? Want to try it?""Uh." Caught by surprise by your proposal, he doesn't reply immediately, and the other two seize the initiative by administering him some pretty powerful slaps to the back as a form of encouragement(?)."Come on, do it. Let's see if she can make a man out of you, because apparently I haven't.""I, uh. I can't really step back, can I?""Nope." You reply, inviting him to follow you outside.>[Physical] First of all, we'll work on coordination and muscle mass.>[Dawn] I saw you using a longsword in melee. Let me see how.>[Zenith] What you need most of all is not just toughness, but also attitude.

>>31326733>[Zenith] What you need most of all is not just toughness, but also attitude.To be a pirate captain, you need to be the one with the biggest swagger on the boat.That's the rule.
>>31326733Dawn. Let's make a swordmaster out of him.I say we train Regis in Zenith next, by the way. Get him properly charismatic Pirate.

>>31326342>"Do you happen to have a First Age ship in your pocket too, boss?" Rubeni jokes.>"Give me some time, still working on it." You reply.FIRST-AGE SUBMERSIBLE IS GO
Rolled 10>>31326733I'm so conflicted!>[Dawn] I saw you using a long sword in melee. Let me see how.
>>31326733>[Zenith] What you need most of all is not just toughness, but also attitude.Gotta seduce those water nymphs!

Rolled 4We're on page 10, guys.New thread?
>>31326733>[Physical] First of all, we'll work on coordination and muscle mass.Given how feminine he is, it is time to toughen him up a bit.
Rolled 3>>31326879I just archived this one, so that might be a good idea.
Nah, we're closing it here. It's lateish for me.He's going to train Dawn from next thread.2 XP (base)1 XP (sorted out your future)1 XP bonus (sixsome) (new high score)
>>31326960>1 XP bonus (sixsome) (new high score)We can beat this
>>31326960You can always make a new thread so we can discuss what Charms to buy next or something.
Rolled 5>>31326960>2 XP (base)>1 XP (sorted out your future)>1 XP bonus (sixsome) (new high score)Are we spending experience now?
Rolled 1>>31326960And once again we don't get to purchase ant charms
>>31326999It makes more sense to bank it, given that our training times are instant. I have plenty of things I would like to get, but nothing calls for an immediate purchase.If things heat up, we can call for a pause and go shopping for charms.
>>31327005In the other thread the discussion was mostly split between Eclipse 3 and Terrifying Glorious Presence, but was unclear which one was preferred.I don't really want to open a new thread, though... do you people really think it's necessary?
>>31326960Thanks for running.>>31327005Ant charms?
>>31327068It'd still be nice to see the list since what's available shifts depending on what we've been doing recently.
Rolled 3>>31327071I'm fine with either, but I favor Eclipse.
Rolled 2>>31327071>Terrifying Glorious Presence
>>31327071>do you people really think it's necessary?it is not.
>>31327071I still want TGP, with 5 XP leftover we can buy eclipse 3 next time
Rolled 5>>31327089meant to say any>>31327071That charm that let us do 6 social damage, did we meet the prerequisites for that?
>>31327071I like not eating up actual quest time with arguing over what to buy, but it's up to you.
>>31324195You upped the lewdness considerably. Though I think Irene needs to be draped with ribbons or something appropriately statue-y
Rolled 1>>31327192I think we can go lewder
>>31327071No need for a new thread. Let's just finish up real quick here.TGP sounds good to me.
>>31324185>Ask about Regis>Ask about last night>Ask about giving the harem pile some towels for cleaning or wet towels for rolling up and smacking Tia on the ass.
>>31327220We can fuck the Immaculate monks all at once.
>>31327128I agree with this. We NEED Eclipse 3, but TGP is pretty important to get. So we get TGP and then immediately get Eclipse after.
>>31327234What specifically does TGP do again?
>>31327071Let's get TGP, no need to waste time.
>>31327273it's upgrades Majestic Radiant Presene to add one additional success on top of what MRP does
