You spend the rest of the afternoon sparring with captain Alexei.You're a bit impressed: he's a nimble and agile fighter, probably quite used to fighting on the deck of a ship. His fighting style, self-thaught and informal, includes many wide dodges and parries that make full use of the cluttered environment of a ship-to-ship boarding action, combined with his own short stature and slender frame.He favors dual-wielding with longsword and a parrying dagger, though he's proven adept with a variety of weapons."Do you know swordfighting, though, boss?" He asks after a while."Of course." You reply, a bit surprised by the question. "...why?""Well, I always see you fighting barehanded." He's sparring with wooden weapons against three seamen at once while having this conversation, and he's quite good at staying focused on both at the same time, it seems."Well, when I Exalted I didn't have a sword handy, and quickly realized I didn't need one.""Tia has one, though." Sidestep, dodge, and a lunge to the stomach, deftly knocking aside one of his attackers."Matter of choice." You shrug, grabbing a wooden training sword and taking the place of the knocked-out attacker."Oh shit-" he frantically raises his guard, just a moment before you slash his wooden blade in two with a well-placed blow."If you've got time to worry about my swordsmanship, then you should focus more on your own." You return to the barrel you were sitting on, and order: "let's move on to four against one."Following your orders, two more seamen join the fray. Alexei groans and grabs a new sword.At the end of the day, as the sun is setting, he returns to his ship, all beat up and sore.Millian has already long left to return to the castle. You're left alone on the docks. After staring out at the setting sun for a few minutes...>return to castle (look for who?)>go to the ship>other?
>Who are we?Maka, an exiled noble recently Exalted as a Zenith-caste Solar. She's in the western city of Tianna as a guest of queen Amata (DB), an old friend. Abyssals are targeting the city for conquest, Lintha pirates have infiltrated it with spies and agents, and half the island is controlled by paranoid Lunars. Fun times.>Solar? Zenith?

So....you know...keep an eye out for that in the future.>Anyways just wanted to let you know that I'm busy kicking ass and taking names, and that you're invited to the weddings if, you know, you wanna go and have the free time and everything.

Everything's pretty cool over here in Tianna so thanks for listening, I guess.>talk to you soon>Maka xoxoxoxoxoxo
>>31338558Jesus Christ, EF. What crazy-ass time zone do you live in?
>>31338500Thinking about it. I wonder what it takes to learn GLORIOUS! SOLAR! SABER!Lets see, it would take 11 XP to bring Zenth up to 5. That's something that we should think about soon, but now I think we should get Terrifying Glorious Presence for bow. Anyway>go to the shipI think we should check up on things down at the ship
>>31338711Dawn 3 is enough. if there's interest and since Maka is using weapons it could be an option at the end of this thread (not now, ough)
>>31338711Naw, Zenith up, just so we can say 'yeah, maximum Zenith, deal with it'.>>31338737Weapons are for casuals.
Rolled 5>>31338500I'll second >>31338620 if the sun is still full in the sky, and we should be less of a fratboi, but the general gist of it seems good.
>>31338815in my defense, Maka is a moron, so she writes (prays) like a moron too.Complete with transliterated capitalization, spelling, punctuation, and general grammatical errors.
>>31338838She's not really that stupid.When she actually sits down and thinks things through she's quite smart.It's just she's usually too busy fucking and punching to do that.
>>31338849What you've described basically comes down to "Most of the time Anon is kind of dumb, but every now and then he has a good idea."Which, well, yeah....accuracy through volume
>>31338500>>return to castle (look for who?)Look for whoever's still able to walk after last night. Socialise a bit.
Rolled 1>>31338838shes a queen, she ain't illiterate or a moron, she's just a little less professional since exalting, and she prays plenty fine, her prayers are not written or said, but danced, in the nude, sensuously, beneath the sun
>>31338936You don't need to be a genius in order to be in charge/have power.Historical examples include: Most tin pot dictators, most elected congresspeople/public officials, old timey inbred European monarchs, a lot of corporate executives, etc...Her being queen means she was in the right place at the right time (see: being squeezed out of mother's vagina).In addition, that was more communing with the big man. This is praying. There's a difference. One is a spirit quest fueled by peyote, this is a letter/status report.
>>31338968I am now imagining Maka writing a kindergarten-level letter, in crayon, to send to the Big Guy.He sticks it on his fridge with a magnet, pleased as punch.
>>31339006See? Isn't that the best imagery in the world?It also completes with illustrations of Amata and Irene and Samiel and Tia (both in war form and not).Happiest step-dad in the world.
>>31339044Comes complete with...It's getting late.
>>31339058I read it as 'competes' anyway, which makes more sense that your correction so whatever.GMT+10 a best it's only just past 7PM here.
>>31339079It means "there's a letter written in crayon with attached drawings, also in crayon.'
>>31339094Ah, I was thinking the illustrations were separate.
>>31339140I don't know if you're ESL or not, but "comes complete with," is synonymous with "also comes with"
>>31339166Well, yes, but that's not what you originally posted.>It also completes withI read that as 'competes with'. Implying the images are separate and competing for attention and pride-of-place.
>>31338500>other?The prayer seems like a good idea. But it would be nice to take the scenic route back to the castle to do it. See the sights, meet the people, debate some immaculate preachers...Still voting for HSDD.
Rolled 5>>31338500Head back to the castle and pray, but take the slow path like >>31339215 saidAlso I vote we max Zenith
>>31339213But, well, that ISN'T what I wrote in that first post. Like, I get it, my omission (forgetting) of some words makes it a bitch to read but it'd be good if you weren't misrepresenting me too.>"It also completes ..."which then got turned into>"It also [comes complete with] ..."
Rolled 9>>31339235Buddy, your discussion is getting stupid and past the point of what started itIt is exactly what you said first post
>>31339215Mindcontrol a shit. I vote to delete it from the list permanently.>>31339235Not misrepresenting you, bro, just stating how I interpreted it.
Rolled 3>>31339262And I vote against your vote to forever cut us off from a perfectly legitimate option of doing things
>>31339215Likewise. In the last thread I got in an argument about it with those who were against it and they compared UMIs to nuclear weapons.This turned me off from them, but now that I had the time to think about it I've realized that UMIs being nukes is not a reason not to buy them. It is a strong reason to to buy them! I want to slap myself for being so retarded!If we had a charm that made our punches as powerful as nukes I would vote to get it right away. The same principle applies.I might write an essay explaining why UMIs are in fact souped up persuasion later.
Rolled 7>>31339274I'll second your veto of his shortsighted vote
>>31339279>I might write an essay explaining why UMIs are in fact souped up persuasion later.Not in this thread, please. Keep this game-related.
>>31339253Semantics a shit, yeah. 99% of the time it's buttmad autists, but every now and then a stray "l," makes a difference.>>31339279UMI is literally persuasion-type charms on steroids. I mean, what do you think Talking to the Heart is? That's using essence to forcibly change, alter, or plant something into someone else's skull, and that shit gets used like salt and butter.UMI is literally just social rolls on bath salts (essence.).
>>31339279No thanks.No mind control.
Rolled 10>>31339300yeah, leave it til after the thread is finished>>31339312oh shut up
>>31339279UMIs are literally mindcontrol.They're a slippery slope; one minute you're causing someone to 'gain a positive feeling for you', the next you're overwriting their personality entirely.>>31339301TttH doesn't do any of the things you just said. It causes the user to say things that have the desired effect. The ability itself doesn't actually effect the 'target' in any way.
>>31339318He's not (entirely) wrong, though - UMI is doing things to a brain that that brain wouldn't necessarily do to itself.He's being a huge turd about it, though.UMI is the stick exalts use to scratch themselves when their arms won't reach.It's not the first tool, or the best tool, or the most efficient tool...but sometimes it's what you need to accomplish a goal.
>>31339343The charm text literally says "Captivating a single person's trust and affection."Sure seems like it 'affects,' the 'target,' in very material ways.
Rolled 5>>31339343>TttH doesn't do any of the things you just said. It causes the user to say things that have the desired effect. The ability itself doesn't actually effect the 'target' in any way.wut>>31339362exactly
Rolled 10>>31339343> The ability itself doesn't actually effect the 'target' in any way.Uhh yes it does, if anything, the words we say are the ones with the UMIs, to do the work for us instead of us using a UMI
Stop the UMI arguments or I stop running the quest. Bring them to the Exalted General or open another thread and link it here.
>>31338500>Return to the CastleSee how everyone is recovering.>>31339387Thank you.
Rolled 6>>31339387thanks EF, those arguments tend to derail threads and shit up the place
Rolled 9I wonder what this quest would be like if we picked twilight caste. The advantage is that we would have been able to wyld shape the wyld away, however we wouldn't be able to get the help that made beating the wyld much easer.
>>31339510Maka still probably wouldn't've had more knowledge about wyld physics, and her being a twilight doesn't preclude diplomacy.it probably would have altered her interactions with UC and shit, though.And Irene. So much Irene panty soaking firehosing hurricane wetness.
Rolled 9>>31339525>And Irene. So much Irene panty soaking firehosing hurricane wetness.well I imagine she's still recovering from yesterday/lastnight/this morning so thats still there/tg/ always like to try diplomancing and with Maka as she is, we can diplomance them in the face
>>31339549"Speak softly and carry a big stick."Maka just speaks big stick. Very efficient.
>>31339549I mean in regards to being a twilight would be more arousing for Irene than being anything else.Obviously she'd still put out like a feral animal, because that's how DBs/Exalted works.
>>31339570I'd her big stick.
>>31339606You'd be gay if you wouldn't, Anon.
You head back to the castle, just in time for dinner for everyone. You rejoin witgh Tia, Amata and everyone. Millian has returned as well.After having a short chat around the table, the discussion veers on the festival. Apparently the preparations are underway, being overseen by Smoke herself."I... Also kind of promised a sacrifice to Yaraon, the god of the island's plains." You mention.Amata rolls her eyes. "...well, we got demesnes out of this, so I guess it's worth it. I'll see to it.""With all these hearthstones we'll get, we could power a lot of essence weapons." Irene is overjoyed. "I can't wait for these manses!""Manse building can take a very long time." Samiel deflates her enthusiasm."...I know." She sighs."Anyway, festival will be tomorrow night." Amata reminds you. "And you'll have to dance. Have anything ready?">I have some ideas. (What?)>since you're organizing, I have a request... (What?)>I will improvise.>I should talk with her about it first>I was thinking I could use a partner.
Rolled 7>>31339634>I have some ideas. (Tassels, oil)>I was thinking I could use a partner.Other than that>I should talk with her about it first
>>31339634Dance naked.With Smoke.Who is also naked.
Rolled 2>>31339634Seconding >>31339670Of course we're dancing with Tia first, then Amata and we can dance with Smoke and then Irene and Samiel after that.
Rolled 2>>31339670Gonna go with this.Unless it's too much, then >>31339681
Rolled 6>>31339681Now now, full nudity is reserved for the Unconquered Sun, Smoke will have to settle for ALMOST naked Maka in tassels
>>31339760Tassels are tacky.How about bodypaint?
>>31339775Also pretty tacky. You go from Vegas pole dancer to some music festival whore.No real net gain.Stop being prudes. Everyone wants Maka birthday suit.
Rolled 9>>31339775We already have a tassel bikini, and we already promised smoke we'd be covered in oil (I think, that might have just been the people in the thread at the time)
>>31339775Praises to DS written on our body, then we dance the night away? Sounds fun.
Rolled 4>>31339787>Stop being prudes. Everyone wants Maka birthday suit.I agree, but they have to earn that, we don't hand that out willy nily, we can do that at the end of the festival for Smoke
Rolled 6>>31339775bodypaint is even more crass and tacky, stick with tassels, we'd pull them off well
>>31339787>some music festival whore.I thought that was our job here.>>31339791>we'd be covered in oilShe's going to set us on fire, isn't she.
>>31339795>"They have to earn it"Ugh. You're the kind of person who doesn't believe in social security either, do you?People don't have to "earn," shit.Maka wants to be accepted? You do embarrassing stuff at parties. Besides, she's a huge slut.
>>31339817You caught me. But we can try to be a nice whore, and not a trashy one.As for the second point, I thought that was the whole point of buying that resistance charm is so that we can be on fire with no damage as we party hard and throw down with Smoke.
I'm really starting to hate the playerbase of this quest.
>>31339822She's not a slut. She's Exalted.
>>31339839Which is kind of a lot like calling a "car," an "automobile."
>>31339830Natural fire.I expect someone deliberately lighting us on fire constitutes an attack.
Rolled 5>>31339791>>31339817Looking back, we didn't actually promise her we'd be oil'd up, but it was implied
>>31339634>I should talk with her about it firstbut>I have some ideas. We need oiled up bitches, us being one of them.Anyone who wants to join in is welcome.We should get some shiny jewellery to go with he tassels.
>>31339849I dunno, oil burning is pretty natural, but I suppose that it's also not my decision there.That said, the only "unnatural," fire would be stuff like firetongue weapons and stuff from charms and whatever.Regular whale oil (or whatever) sounds pretty natural.
Rolled 9>>31339865This is good too, add this to this >>31339670
Rolled 2>>31339865>We should get some shiny jewellery to go with he tassels.nipple piercings?
>>31339860Yeah, but at a fire festival with dancing bitches, why would you ever *not* be oiled up?>>31339869It's not like that.Bathing in a river of lava is a natural hazard. It's covered by the charm.Someone whacking us with a branch they've set on fire is not a natural hazard. It's not covered by the charm.Basically, us getting deliberately lit on fire may not constitute a natural hazard under the charm's conditions.
I fucking hate all of you now. Rule 0 has been broken.
Rolled 6Do we have any ideas for the non dancing parts of the festival?
So yeah now I'm actually worried about this oil thing.>>31339896?
>>31339888I was thinking bright shiny bronze/gold bracelets, anklets, necklaces/chokers, but that works too.
Rolled 10>>31339889>Basically, us getting deliberately lit on fire may not constitute a natural hazard under the charm's conditions.It would be stupidly situational then and more about the scenario, and not the makeup of the fire, it would make sense for any 'natural' fire to be rendered ineffective because of it, and to not cover and magic'd up fire because its not naturalA stick on fire that hits us in the face is still natural fire, unless you magic'd the fire on the stick
"...yes, I have some ideas. I already have a costume, and I was thinking of adding some oil. Since it'll be at night, with fires in the background I imagine, that should give off some good reflections."You hear the clanky noise of Tia dropping her fork and knife on the plate."Although I was thinking about bodypaint too... I still have to decide on that.""A solo performance, or you'll be dancing with Smoke, or someone else as well?""I was thinking about that too." You mumble.Amata makes things clear: "Let me be perfectly clear: I can't. Samiel and Irene too. We're the royal family, we can't get involved in this."You nod. "Yeah, I can understand that.">I'll dance alone>I'll pair up with Smoke>I'll pair up with someone else (who?)
>>31339902Being oiled up is fine.Being lit on fire is probably not.>>31339865Anyone who wants to join in is welcome.We should see if Samiel wants to get oiled up and dance with Smoke in a thong or something.
>>31339916>It would be stupidly situational then and more about the scenario,Welcome to the whole point of the charm.It's situational by definition. We debated this back when we got it.
Rolled 7>>31339917>I'll dance alonethen>I'll pair up with Smokethen>I'll pair up with someone else (Tia)
Rolled 8>>31339917>I'll pair up with smokeI'd say Tia, but she'd be too busy looking at us to dance
>>31339917>All threePlease tell me we won't have to roll for this.
>>31339917>>I'll dance alone>>I'll pair up with Smoke>>I'll pair up with someone else (who?)We're going to do a fuckload of dancing.Lots of different dances....we should see if we can scrounge up a Tassel bikini for Tia on short notice, too.
>>31339930Yeah, Tia might get a bit distracted, then a bit distractING if you catch my meaning
At charm's protection is vs. Natural hazards as opposed to attacks, not as opposed to magical hazards. Given the safe, non-combat circumstances and the collaboration of a fire-aspected goddess, it's safe to assume that Maka could set herself on fire and not suffer damage, if that's what you're wondering.
>>31339917We'll open up with something all stiff and ceremonial with Smoke, move on to general partying with Smoke, and then graduate to 'basically fucking in public' with Tia. And Smoke.
>>31339916>It would be stupidly situational then and more about the scenario, and not the makeup of the fireThat's *exactly* what the power does.A forest fire won't do shit to us.Someone deliberately poking us with a burning stick will.That's how the damn thing works.
Rolled 10>>31339917>I'll dance aloneI think we should keep Tia in reserve incase something happens. Perhaps the Abyssals will try again. I doubt it though. They might launch a proper invasion instead
>>31339937>Oiled up Tia in the tassel bikiniBONERBONER STOPSTOP THAT
>>31339947So we can dance with the volcano goddess WHILE ON FIRE?Fucking PERFECT!
>>31339917>I'll dance alone
>>31339957>Implying Tia can't fight just as well naked and oily as she can "In reserve"Beast form, yo
Rolled 2>>31339948That would work I suppose. Might get us in trouble we we announce we're engaged to Amata, but when has that ever stopped us?
>>31339967We're going to need a lot of oil reapplications.
>>31339948Normally I'd vote to be a little more conservative than this, but seeing as how it's a festival for SMOKE, I can't see it going any other way
>>31339980Where's Millian and Regis?
Rolled 7>>31339917Seconding >>31339926
So, we're thinking:Oil, Tassels, solo dances, dances with Smoke, dances with Tia.Some dances on fire (probably with Smoke), Tia dances oiled up in a tassel bikini of her own.Millian and Regis on standby for re-oilingDancing and whatnot pretty much the whole festival.
Rolled 5>>31339948It'll end up like this anyway, so we may as well plan for it
>>31340011There's the jewelery and stuff, need to settle that.
Rolled 2>>31340011That sounds good, I'm not 100% behind being on fire, even if it won't hurt us, but I'm not vehemently opposed to it either. And the danceing should progress like >>31339948But wait, won't Tia's Bikini look odd with her Gloves and Thigh highs?
Rolled 9>>31340033yep, so wrist and ankle bangles, necklaces and nipple piercings maybe with some tassels of their own, anything else?
Rolled 10>>31340047I'm against nipple piercings, everything else there sounds ok
Rolled 5>>31340047>>31340052Earrings instead of Nipple rings?
>>31340033Ah, yes.I dunno how popular piercings would be, but I'm definitely on board for shiny bronze/brass/gold bracelets, anklets and necklaces.>>31340041>But wait, won't Tia's Bikini look odd with her Gloves and Thigh highs?Do the bikini in the same colour as her gloves/boots - white or something.See if we can get some silver jewellery for her to complete the ensemble?Shiny silver/white lunar reflecting the fire as a contrast to bright gold/brown Solar during a dance would look brilliant.
Wouldn't us being on fire and not dying freak the hell out of the normal people? And then all we'd need is one Immaculate guy going "ANATHEMA DO NOT BURN BECAUSE THEY ARE DEVILS" and suddenly us being accepted by the country gets a lot harder.
Rolled 10>>31340057whynotboth.jpg>>31340052why so anon?
Rolled 9>>31340058ooh, that sounds like it'd look awesome.>>31340065If we play it up like a stage act, it could work.Plus, they know about Fire Dragonblooded. Samiel was surfing the magma river with us, remember? They know some people just don't burn.
>>31340041I agree. White onepiece instead.>>31340052Nipple clipons? They're not even as painful as they sound!>>31340065"Volcano goddess did it."
Rolled 8>>31340066I just don't like non-ear piercings, so I'm fine with >>31340057Also I agree with >>31340065, we should really think about the fire and not just do it because it would be cool
Rolled 4>>31340079>>31340058>>31340041How about White leather Straps? They'd go with the boots and gloves and sort of fit the hot-and-oiled-up tone.
>>31340080>we should really think about X and not just do it because it would be coolThinking is for people who aren't Solars.
>>31340066Both is good. The more the better.
>>31340075I forgot that fire dragonblooded can do that too.I'm still a little leery, but I suppose being on fire isn't the weirdest thing to see an Exalt do in Creation.
Rolled 3So we've got>>31339948>>31340011For the dancing>>31340047For the jewelryThe only thing we need to decide still are>What, if anything, are we getting pierced?and>What is Tia wearing?
Rolled 9>>31340129I have no opinion either way on piercing, though I am uncomfortable with piercing Maka's miraculous breasts. Belly or ear would be appropriate.I am in favour of >>31340095or>>31340058For Tia. I like the idea of getting her silver jewellery to match ours.
Rolled 3>>31340129For me I'm gonna go with>Ears: Yes>Nipples: NoAnd Tia should wear what >>31340058 said
Rolled 8>>31340080>because it would be coolwe're a solar, thinking it would be cool effectively writes it into the laws of the universe
Rolled 7>>31340140Oh I hadn't thought of Belly, but when >>31340139 said it, I knew it was a yes immediately
Rolled 3>>31340139>though I am uncomfortable with piercing Maka's miraculous breastsso am I, although >>31340079 has a good point, nipple clamps are a thing, a glorious thing we should useearings are just going to get covered with our hair so why bother? but belly piercings, we should totally do
Rolled 10>>31340158>nipple clamps are a thing,Are they a thing in a preindustrial society though?
Rolled 9>>31340170with the way exalted carry on, probably
>>31340170I'm sure they're capable of bending a bit of metal into a slightly-open circle.
Rolled 6>>31340213>filenamepfthahaI don't think Tia would survive the bloodloss from seeing Maka wearing such things
>>31340251I don't think Tia would ever let Maka stop wearing such things. Heck if we did take them off she'd probably sneak a new pair on while we weren't looking.
Rolled 4>>31339917>I'll dance alone
>>31340251That's an argument in favor of the rings right?
>>31340269Well, it's an argument in favor of teasing Tia at least.
Rolled 2>>31340251I don't think we'd survive what Tia would do to us after wearing such things
Rolled 7>>31340269Yes, very yes>>31340263>Heck if we did take them off she'd probably sneak a new pair on while we weren't looking.Which is why they should become a permanent part of our wardrobe, hell we could enchant them or get them made from orichalcum or something
>>31339917>I'll start dancing alone>Then smoke will join me for the finaleAs a brief aside, do we have an upgrade for HSS available?
Rolled 10>>31340282>get them made from orichalcum or somethingWe'd have to find some first>>31340289We already decided who we're dancing with, we're doing wardrobe now >>31340129
Rolled 8>>31340269Remember: Ours have to be gold or bronze, Tia's have to be silver
Rolled 4>>31340312We aren't discussing this, stop
Rolled 8>>31340312take it to the exalted general
>>31340312For the last fucking time, SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT UMI.
>>31340318>>31340322Yeah, I got to EF's post on the matter immediately after that - I reply as I read. Deleted.
>>31340296I'd already voted on wardrobe. Hadn't on dancing partners. I got here ten minutes ago, sorry.
Rolled 8>>31340326Read THE WHOLE THREAD before you reply, chances are we stopped talking about whatever you're replying to long ago
>>31340336I read the entire conversation tree with my plugin, then chip in if my point hasn't been covered. I deleted my post, now shut the fuck up about it to stop shitting up the thread.
Rolled 4>>31340347The point isn't if your point has been covered, it's that the thread has likely moved on
>>31340356This is going to be my last reply:Learn when to stop shitting up the thread, you awful ass-muncher. I deleted the post. Now shut the fuck up.
Rolled 4>>31340367And here's my last rebuttal, had you read THE WHOLE THREAD before replying, you would have known that EF said not to talk about it anymore, and never made the post in the first place
Rolled 6SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP.Now, what should our ear and belly piercings be and what nipple clamps should we get?
Rolled 4>>31340395Ears could have those dangly chains that hook on to multiple bits of the ear.Belly, Iunno. Something with a gemstone(s) set in it?
>>31340395>nipple clampsNone, thanks. While fun for BDSM, they look absolutely terrible when dancing. Nipple piercings? Maybe. Hell, Exalted setting art is rife with nipple studs and cute panties. Clamps? Absolutely not.>ear and belly piercingsLet's exploit the fact that our skin's tensile strength is through the roof. We can get a massive sunburst navel jewelry, the size of our first, and similarly large/heavy golden earrings especially designed to sway as we dance. We should, at any rate, wear things equally evocative of the sun and volcanoes, since we're a sun priestess dancing to a volcano goddess.
Rolled 2>>31340395I don't know what they should look like, but they should be gold and if Tia get any they should be silverJewels on ours should be Rubies and Jewels on Tia's should be Sapphire
Rolled 7>>31340416>Belly, Iunno. Something with a gemstone(s) set in it?if we can, I'd like every piece of jewelry to have gems in/on them where appropriate, in number and sizebut I dunno if we can find what we need or have it made in time for the festival
Rolled 1>>31340422Not traditional nipple clamps, these kind >>31340213
Rolled 10>>31340422>Nipple piercings? Maybe. Hell, Exalted setting art is rife with nipple studs and cute panties. Clamps? Absolutely not.I'm in favor of nipple piercings, no idea why anons would find those weird and others not, but it was a bit of a compromise
>>31340436Ah, gotcha. 'I didn't feel like piercing my nipples' nipple jewelry. Then yeah, sunbursts, obviously.
Rolled 2>>31340422>>ear and belly piercings>Let's exploit the fact that our skin's tensile strength is through the roof. We can get a massive sunburst navel jewelry, the size of our first, and similarly large/heavy golden earrings especially designed to sway as we dance. We should, at any rate, wear things equally evocative of the sun and volcanoes, since we're a sun priestess dancing to a volcano goddess.Sounds good to me, I'd also prefer nipple piercings that have large sunbursts covering Maka's tits, and if we can, they could slowly melt over the course of the festival until theres nothing left but some small piercings and a small gem remaining
Rolled 9>>31340443There's some big cultural connotations to the things in some places that make people a bit hung up on them, that's all.
>>31340443>I'm in favor of nipple piercingsYeah, me too. If we're having Maka with pierced ears and navel, we may as well do the nipples and tongue as well. One piece of metal through the skin is the same as any other, really.
Rolled 5>>31340461Don't forget we don't want to overpower the tassel bikini.If we get too ostentatious they'll clash.Also getting this much jewellery made up quick could be interesting.
Rolled 7>>31340461No, lets not melt the jewelry after wearing it once
Rolled 4>>31340474>Don't forget we don't want to overpower the tassel bikini.well the bikini is coming off at some point so we could have them on after that point and then when we're doing the 'dancing with Tia so hard and suggestively we may as we be fucking' part, we can get rid of them completely
"Tia." You call out to the Lunar, shaking her from her half-trance."Bwuh?""Can you dance?" You invite her with a wink."...I never danced in my life." She points out."Perfect. I'll teach you." You stand up and walk up to her, grabbing her hand and pulling her with you. As you leave, you hear Amata giggling."No, Maka, I really..." Tia is letting you drag her through the corridors of the palace, but doesn't seem thrilled at all."Come on." You urge her. "You're faster' stronger and more agile than me, you have great coordination, graceful movements, terrifying endurance - I'm sure you'd become an awesome dancer in no time." You stop. "...what's the problem?"No response. When was the last time you've seen Tia like this? Did you ever?"...are you shy?" The thought blows your mind. "You've never been shy. Heck, you did stuff with me, in public, that was-""Because..." She mumbles. "Because you're so hot that I, I just lose control.""You could try and channel that into dance. Turning emotion into motion is how it works!" You suggest."...I'm a bit afraid. I don't want to ruin your dance. I'd... I could just get in the way.">Insist, you want her to join>She's not forced to do it if she doesn't want to>Propose something else (what?)
Rolled 9So it's>>31339948and>>31340011For dancing>>31340047For Jewelry, but with this >>31340213 kind of nipple ring instead of getting them pierced, plus piercing our ears and bellyI think we're good now
Rolled 8>>31340531>We'll try a practice run to see if she can handle it
>>31340531>She's not forced to do it if she doesn't want toBut we're still going to teach her to dance right now, regardless of whether she dances with us on the big night. Dancing is important to Maka.
Rolled 5>>31340531>>31340545>We'll try a practice run to see if she can handle itThis sounds good
Rolled 10>>31340531Seconding >>31340545She will dance with us damnitand it will be good practice for the wedding, and the other wedding
Rolled 7>>31340531We won't force her on the night, but we're going to practice like hell until then.
Rolled 1>>31340531Ohmygod Tia is adorable....is there a charm like TWTT for this?Swan Dancer Ballet Technique?
Rolled 2>>31340531>>Propose something else (what?)>Cup her face with our hands, then devour her lips with our tongue, then when she gives in, we dance and guide her body to dance with us, then when we're in the middle of dancing we stop kissing her and let her see how good she is.
>>31340531>>31340545This sounds like a plan>>31340533And so does this, provided Tia is up for her part
>>31340572Honestly, I wish each different skill had its own training charm - or that Bureaucracy, at least, had one - but no, I'm pretty sure that everything other than Physical/Dawn/Zenith is under the Lore training charm.
>Exalted Quest two days in a rowI would have woken up early if I had knownSo did we buy a charm?
Rolled 3>>31340531[x] >>31340545
>>31340593No, we haven't spent our experience yet. My vote is still for Eclipse or, failing that, TGP.
Rolled 6>>31340531>Tia>Shyjesus christ I cannot handle the sudden moeblob
Rolled 4>>31340531>>31340549ThisAlso we're going to need to get her naked in a bit so Maid can measure her up for her dancing outfit.
Rolled 5>>31340531>She's not forced to do it if she doesn't want to>But we could still use a practice partner if she's up for it.We should probably put Amata in charge of acquiring out new bling and we should talk to Smoke about what she wants (we might if it to her, we might give her something else...).
>>31340613>Also we're going to need to get her naked in a bit so Maid can measure her up for her dancing outfit.>implying she's not going to insist on the wedding dress or nude boots/gloves.
Rolled 8>>31340531>She's not forced to do it if she doesn't want to
Rolled 9>>31340621Well we can at least *try*.Hopefully she can understand we take aesthetics very seriously.
>>31340626Yeah. If we can get her some silver moon jewelry that basically matches our stuff, that would be sweet. And solid wedding jewelry, if we don't find a supply of orichalcum/moonsilver before then.
>>31340631I'm still in favor of Terrifying Glorious Presence
>>31340631>THSGot a LOT less appealing when EF enformed us that we can only train people for four hours per day, not four hours per person/group per day.
>>31340641I'd support that. It'll probably be useful for the whole Dancing Smoke Ceremony thing and our visit to the water elemental court.
>>31340667Yeah, definitely. My personal preference is for Eclipse, but I'm 100% okay with TGP because I definitely want to get it sooner or later.
Rolled 2>>31340593I still say Zenith 5
>>31340678We can buy Eclipse next session, but for now I think we have a more immediate use for TGP, with all the dancing and sexing were about to do
>>31340695See, I want that eventually, but I want to shore up our Eclipse first, and there's already a ton of Zenith charms we want available at this tier.
>>31340531>She's not forced to do it if she doesn't want to
>>31340651But think of all the extra sex we could have!
>>31340716We're already having 24 hour incestuous/divine orgies. There would be no additional sex.
Rolled 8>>31340725Days in creation last 25 hours I think, we can squeeze in a bit more
Rolled 1>>31340758That doesn't really matter.We promised them "one day and one night". Doesn't matter if a day is 12 or 48 hours, we still owe them one day and one night.
>>31340758Then it was 25 hours - we were fucking from noon to noon.>>31340771I'm talking about the orgy we already had, not our impending additional gangbang.
Rolled 2>>31340771The water court isn't going to be a problem.It's more sex with everyone else, really.If we get any mortal lovers they're going to be in for a hell of a time.
Rolled 2>>31340779Yeah, I realized that just as I posted.
>>31340788Do our command buffs apply to sex?
>>31340703TGP would not do much with dancing, since it can target only small groups. HSDD, on the other hand, is perfect for this situation.
>>31340802Majestic Radiant Presence probably does, and Heroism Encouraging Presence if we're commanding them as subordinates/troops.
>>31340802As long as we're orchestrating the orgy they probably do.
Rolled 1>>31340809Except roughly half of us don't want to use UMI on people, so HSDD is probably not an option because it will just be a shitstorm again.
>>31340809>TGP would not do much with dancing, since it can target only small groups.Which is relevant because we aren't dancing for a crowd, we're dancing for Dancing Smoke. That's how prayer works.>HSDD, on the other hand, is perfect for this situation.Take it to the General, we're done arguing about it.
>>31340809oh boy here we go
>>31340809The bonus success always applies, from the description it looks like we don't even have to activate it to get that bonus
>>31340809>HSDD, on the other hand, is perfect for this situation.Are you TRYING to make EF stop running this quest? Shut the fuck up.
>>31340833>Which is relevant because we aren't dancing for the crowd, we're dancing for Dancing Smoke. That's how prayer works.Well said.
>>31340858Look, I don't really want to get involved, but would you mind toning down the anger level a bit? Thanks.
Dunno why people want TGP. We're not planning on socially attacking Smoke, are we?I mean sure it could be useful for other stuff, but I just think we have better stuff to buy right now.Like GCS. Then we can dance on top of things. Like flagpoles.While on fire.
>>31340882EF literally say that if we don't stop arguing about HSDD/UMI that he would stop running the quest. See:>>31339387>Stop the UMI arguments or I stop running the quest. Bring them to the Exalted General or open another thread and link it here.So, no, I'm not toning down the anger. It's something to be angry about, someone doing something that could lead to my favourite quest no longer being run.
>>31340884Majestic Radiant Presence applies to all social rolls, not just social attacks, and prayer is a social roll. That means that TGP will give us an objectively-better prayer.Make sense?
Rolled 7>>31340884I imagine it's something like "being impressive/sexy while prayer-dancing" is just as much a social thing as "being convincing while arguing".
>>31340897Ok. Just try not to provoke a backlash.
>>31340910>on top of its effect, all social attacks have 1 automatic successThat's all TGP does. Adds an automatic success to social attacks. Which is good, don't get me wrong, but kinda useless for prayer-dancing.
>>31340935Hmmm. Exaltedfag, can we get a confirmation on whether or not a prayer check counts as a social attack for the purposes of that charm?
Rolled 6>>31340545I like this. She was gentle with us before, so let's be gentle with her back. She may have a relentless libido, but her heart is actually rather tender.
Rolled 9>>31340961I'm pretty sure dancing would be Physical and Performance, which falls under Zenith
>>31341009It was Social + Performance when we danced for the UCS, and that doesn't answer my question at all. I want Exaltedfag to answer whether dancing as prayer would allow for TGP to apply.
>>31341017It would obviously depend on our intent."give me thing because reasons" would."dude you're like toooootally awesome" would not.
>>31341038See, I'm not so sure of that, which is why I'm asking for EF to confirm one way or the other whether it applies. Considering the fact that 'like me more' is a valid objective for a social attack, I could totally see just praising someone as a social attack. A social attack is literally anything that builds/erodes an intimacy.
Rolled 10>>31341038>"dude you're like toooootally awesome" would not.why not?
"Well, how about we practice a bit and we see if you can handle it." You suggest."...I can try." She follows you to your bedroom. Along the way, you stumble in Millian, or rather, she intercepts you."I've brought your clothes and the usual extra costumes in your room in preparation." She informs you."You're the best, Milly." You thank her with a wink as you enter your room. Regis is there, waiting for you.There's a moment of tension as they cross glances and avert their looks."Right. First of all." You clap your hands."First of all, if you plan to set yourself on fire, I think your ludicrous tassel bikini will burn too." The maid points out with a grin."...how did you know that-""You said it yourself. I'm a maid. It's my job." She smugs."...actually, this was made with a very special material." You catch her by surprise. "I'm sure it's fireproof." "...oh." She replies. "...alright then. So, jewelry and piercings." She looks at you. "...I have no idea who to call for piercings."Regis raises a hand. "Uh... I do.""Really." You're surprised."Well. Pirate island." He points out. "I can probably find some of the tools in a few minutes."You nod. "Alright, good to know, but, no. I was thinking about those rings that don't need a piercing.""Oh, are you afraid of pain?" "Nah, it's probably that she could cut diamond with those things. How would you even pierce them?"You sigh. "Very funny, you two. Tia, get naked."It's amazing how fast she obeys your order. It does give you a sense of power, to be able to order her around like this. It also boggles your mind a bit: she has no sort of shame to undress like this, and you're sure she wouldn't hesitate to do the same in front of howevermany people.But she's afraid to et you down in a performance.Meanwhile, Millian is taking Tia's measures. "Do you plan to set fire to her too?" She wonders.
"Not really... It's a gesture of dedication to Smoke, and the promise was mine." You consider. "So, I think you should wear...">nothing>matching outfits with mine>more elaborate clothing>focus on jewelry>you choose, Tia.>you choose, Millian
Rolled 9>>31341065>There's a moment of tension as they cross glances and avert their looks.awwwwWe really need to find more excuses to have them interact
>>31341075>matching outfits with mineSilver moon jewelry to match our golden suns!
Rolled 3>>31341075>matching outfits with mine
Rolled 5>>31341075>matching outfits with mine>>31341081I like this idea.
>>31341075>matching outfits with mineMakes sense
>>31341065>>31341075Can we get some confirmation on whether TGP would apply for prayer rolls?
Rolled 4>>31341075>matching outfits with mineBut like >>31341081 said, Moons instead of suns, and silver instead of gold
Rolled 2>>31341065>matching outfits with mine>focus on jewelry>you choose, Tia.We'd very much like her to match, but we'll leave the final decision up to her, just like the decision whether to dance or not.
>>31341075>matching outfits with mineAnyone else think she should switch her white stockings and gloves for black ones, while Maka takes white for herself like the OP image?
Rolled 4>>31341100If those are her tell, I don't think they CAN be removed
>>31340961It does. As an aside note: it has the word "attack" in its name, but a Social Attack is not necessarily a hostile action: it's how normal social persuasion works.
Rolled 1>>31341100It'd be interesting, but we'll have a strong bronze/sun and silver/moon contrast going as it is, which is nice.
>>31341107Cool. So a 'social attack' is basically any social roll?So yeah, definitely TGP.
>>31341100>Anyone else think she should switch her white stockings and gloves for black onesNot really. Both Maka and Tia seem strongly-associated with the color white.>>31341106The Tell never appears as clothing. It's always something from your totem animal. She probably has a piece of chitin instead of a tramp stamp - or her green hair is her Tell, something like that.
>>31341107Well that settles it for me. I'm not sure it has Enugu support but is there any chance you could call for a vote on investing in TGP before the feast/ceremony/dance?
Rolled 7>>31341075seconding >>31341081
"Match her outfit to mine, actually. I have oil and fire, but she has her tattoos. They should make a nice contrast."Millian looks at Tia's bare skin. "She doesn't have any tattoos."As a respo se, Tia reveals the moonsilver texture hidden in her skin, and Millian lets out a gasp.""...when are you people going to stop surprising me? It's starting to get pretty stressful.""Sorry, sorry, I should have told you earlier."Over the next two hours, Millian and Regis (who by now has basicaly become immune to seeing you two naked) help you find the right combination of jewelry and accesories. As you think about the coreography, an idea strikes you."...Actually, Millian, Regis, your opinion. Would you think Tia would look better as a man in this?""Please tell me she doesn't mean it literally." Millian groans at Regis, who just looks down with a bit of sadness.>Tia should dance with you as a man>Tia should dance with you as a woman>Other
Rolled 10>>31341206>Tia should dance with you as a manso the women in the audience have some eye candy, too
Rolled 10>>31341206Tia should dance with you as a woman
Rolled 2>>31341206>Tia should dance with you as whatever she wantsMan, woman, bird, whatever. Her choice.My preference is woman, because we're honouring Dancing Smoke, who is a woman. Unless she's not always a woman in which case iunno.
Rolled 10>>31341206>OtherSee if we can get Smoke's opinion. This is going to be dedicated to her after all.Would she prefer two oiled up hot chicks, or one chick and one hunk? Obviously also oiled up, either way.
>>31341206>Tia should dance with you as a manThat would provide a nice contrast, and it would provide a neat symbolism. A moon man of the northern wilderness, a sun woman of the southern city. Both technically foreigners. Both leading praise of the volcano in the middle of the island.Yeah, I like it.
Rolled 6>>31341206>OtherWhatever she's more comfortable as.Getting aroused as a male while dancing could get... a little awkward.
>>31341237>Unless she's not always a woman in which case iunno.She did knock someone up.
>>31338620>turns out she's a crazy bug lady? but she's adorable and terrifying so things will probably work out.It literally just occurred to me that Tia's mantis totem might be a reference to /tg/'s thing for Thri-Kreen girls.How did I not notice that before?
Rolled 3>>31341242Hm. We could send Regis to run and ask her opinion.He can run pretty fast with out physical training.
>>31341206>Millian groans at Regis, who just looks down with a bit of sadness.They're going to end up being the couple who spend their time just sitting around drinking tea as an escape from Exalted craziness.
>>31341206>Tia should dance with you as a womanOiled up bitches is what we offered Smoke after all
Rolled 4>>31341253Yeah, but gods work kinda weird that way.
Rolled 6>>31341206>Tia should dance with you as a woman
>>31341206>Tia should dance with you as herselfI'd prefer dancing with her as a woman since I tend to think of her as one, but gender isn't fixed for Tia so I don't see washy we should impose one on her for the affair.
Rolled 3>>31341237Seconded. We might want to get Tia's final decision on the dancing before asking Smoke's opinion, though.
Rolled 10>>31341206>OtherTia should pick
>>31341288>gender isn't fixed for TiaOooh, maybe a costume with some kind of elastic that's forgiving of her shapeshifting? Let her change shape freely while she dances?
>>31341253She was still a woman when she knocked him up though...
Rolled 4>>31341245>Getting aroused as a male while dancing could get... a little awkward.especially when you remember her comments about that sharkman captain she killed and ate being 'big' and demonstrating it later when we demolished that island with sex
>>31341303Looking vaguely female and being a woman are two very different things.
Rolled 2>>31341300that would be cool
Rolled 5>>31341306I expect she has a variety of penises in her collection she can use.
Rolled 5>>31341321>bulge shapeshifting to various different shapes and sizes while dancingman, we'd make every woman in the kingdom jealous
>>31341300I'd rather not if it would freak out the public
>>31341330>it would freak out the public...and how do you feel about us lighting ourselves on fire as we dance, then? You don't think that would freak out the public at least as much as Tia changing sexes seamlessly while dancing?
Rolled 9>>31341345At a Volcano god's dance ceremony? Not ass much.
>>31341312I'm aware. But it's not like gods' have the reproductive plumbing to go with their genitalia anyway. Besides, Smoke acts more inhuman than human to begin with, so the only context in which her gender maters is how she self identifies. I'm pretty sure it's been established that that's female.
Rolled 3There better be a magma hot tub that we can skinny dip in with DS after the festival to relax.
>>31341370You're entirely wrong. All that kind of magic shit is basically equally freakout-worthy as far as the common folk are concerned. By the same token, it's all also praiseworthy and marvelous. For every people who send screaming, there will also be people staring in open-mouthed wonder and amazement.>>31341391It's called the magma chamber - you know, the volcano?
Rolled 7>>31341402I think the ratio will be a lot better than 1:1, actually."Bunch of hot Exalts will be oiled up and having a dance-ceremony for the volcano goddess." means they will probably take most weird shit in stride. Because Exalts.
>>31341460Oh, definitely. I'm just saying the ratio won't really be any better for 'bitch lit herself on fire' than 'bitch is a dude now.'
"Well, Tia, what do you feel more comfortable with?""...me?" it's clear she's still not terribly convinced about this whole thing. "...I mostly stay like this normally out of habit, and because this dress fits me better as a woman. It's not any particular attachment."The image of male Tia wearing that wedding dress flies through your mind and gets stuck in there. "Change now."She obliges. You've already seen him like this more than a few times, but standing there looking a bit shy and lost like that? That's almost criminal.Millian has more or less given up. "Maybe I should not be like this. I mean... It's a bit harder to control myself. In several ways.""...I think you should stay like this." the maid intervenes. "People will like it."You decide to move in. "...Tia. You should do what you want. How you want it. You should be yourself. You're not shy - you have even less restraint than me.""It's just that... I don't want to ruin your performance.""Tia... I don't care how well or badly you will perform. I just want you to have fun. I'll handle Smoke. Besides, I'm sure you'll be amazing."By now, Millian and Regis have finished helping you dress, or rather wear all your jewelry. Grabbing Tia's hand, you pull her to you and help her through her first steps.What dance should you prepare for the festival?>simple>symbolic>formal>elegant>acrobatic>sensual>eroticPick 2 at most
Rolled 5>>31341632>>acrobatic>>sensualLet's play to both our strengths

>>31341646Seconding this. Things will get plenty erotic if this party is any decent at all anyway.
>>31341632>>sensual>>eroticSmoke seems like the person who'd like things passionate and sexy, rather than complicated formal things
Rolled 6>>31341632>symbolic>sensualI think erotic is going a bit too far. This is meant as a prayer, not a prelude to another orgy.
Rolled 2>>31341632>symbolic>sensualWe don't want Tia going crazy mid dance, even this much is pushing it I think, but we have to be at least a little lewd

>>31341632>symbolicRegardless of whatever other traits we include, it NEEDS to have symbolic connotations. We're a sun priestess worshipping a volcano goddess. We need to get the symbols right.
>>31341632>>31341658If we go with both it won't matter if Tia loses control a bit, we can just work it into the dance>sensual>erotic
Rolled 4>>31341688>What dance should you prepare for the festival?This is going to be the dance we do for the festival
>>31341632>symbolicThis is a prayer, after all.
Rolled 3>>31341707Right, forgot to roll...
Rolled 2>>31341691>Regardless of whatever other traits we include, it NEEDS to have symbolic connotations.agreed.
Rolled 7>>31341632>sensual>eroticI mean, we're basically trying to seduce a volcano. Gotta do it proper. Maybe swap sensual for symbolic
>>3134172913th roll, first success.Maybe we should grab that dancing relevant Night charm...
Rolled 8>>31341747>Maybe we should grab that dancing relevant Night charm...That's not how that works. The dancing dice pool is Social + Zenith and uses Majestic Radiant Presence and its upgrades. Exaltedfag confirmed that for us.
Rolled 7We should just stick to fighting and fucking.
Rolled 8>>31341779Why? If you look at our actual charms, we're fantastic at leading and training people too, and forming alliances. Not to mention extreme exploration.We're good at tons of stuff aside from fucking and fighting.
Rolled 4>>31341632>symbolic>sensualSymbolic is a must-have, and sensual is the one people are most-into.
Rolled 8>>31341798yeah but leading and training and forming alliances all just leads up to more fighting and fucking anyway
Rolled 10>>31341632>sensual>eroticSymbolic is a close third, but I think Smoke cares less about that than the dance itself
>>31341632>elegant>sensualLet's charm the people.
Rolled 6>>31341798he's referring to how we only seem to get good dice when fighting and fucking
Rolled 2So, we definitely want sensual, and it's a toss-up between symbolic and erotic, right? Any chance we can get all three?
Rolled 5>>31341925That's a confirmation bias. We've had tons of good rolls for other things, we've just had a disproportionately large number of fighting rolls.
Rolled 6>>31341932I'd like all three, but like I said here >>31341850 if I can only pick two it'd be sensual & erotic
Rolled 1>>31341969Yeah, and for me, if it can only be two, it should be sensual and symbolic. It seems easy enough to mix sensual and erotic into a single one, though, for this purpose.
First of all, you need to find an alternative to a tassel bikini, since it doesn't really work well with Tia's manly body in several ways. Besieds, covering up any part of his deliciously toned upper body is a crime against nature. Additionally, her lower body needs to be contained, also for various reasons: comfort (his and yours), decency, and giving him a bit of a psychological barrier to prevent things from escalating way too quickly.After a few trials, you decide to ask Millian to get you a tiger pelt to drape around his waist, to enhance his "savage" appeal while keeping his manliness at least partially contained.But really, this is the first time you try dancing with a companion after your exaltation, with an Exalted. It takes you a bit to realize, after trial and error, that this changes everything.Physical movements in dancing are limited by flexibility and range of motion, by strength in some cases, sheer endurance in others. These limits have completely changed: Tia can casually throw you ten meters in the sky with one arm and catch you as you fall, with unerring accuracy, without hurting you and as a smooth part of another movement, just to mention a single example.And without mentioning Tia's shapeshifting.This forces you to redefine completely everything. It's as much a learning experience for you as it is for Tia. You spend the rest of the evening practising moves and steps and forms, experimenting with your new limits and how far you can push your bodies. You compose a sensual, suggestive interpretation focused on the sun-moon symbolism: this will be a prayer to them, too. Regis and Millian have long gone to bed when you take your first break. It's probably past midnight.>let's keep prsctising for the festival>you know the moves, now let's just dance through the night.>we should go to bed.>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.
Rolled 3>>31341925We also seem to get a disproportionate amount of good roles when not rolling for anything
>>31341632>symbolicGotta get that Sun and Moon imagery going!>sensualWe're lovers, it's hard not to. Besides, I think Smoke would appreciate it.
Rolled 9>>31341991>we should go to bed, and actually rest.
Rolled 9>>31341991>you know the moves, now let's just dance through the night.change to a much more erotic dance, see how long it takes before Tia fucks us on the dance floor
Rolled 8>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually restIt's been, what, nearly 48 hours since we've slept at this point? Go the fuck to sleep.That said, the imagery of sun and moon rising and setting with throws while dancing? That sounds gorgeous.
Rolled 2>>31341991Huh, interesting.>you know the moves, now let's just dance through the night.Just enough to get Tia's confidence up>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.THEN ACTUALLY REST. BIG DAY COMING UP.
Rolled 3>>31341991This >>31342024 we should figure out how far we can push it, then go to bed
Rolled 7>>31341991We probably need >we chould go to bed, and actually rest.But I soooo want>you know the moves, now let's just dance through the night.THS, I'm looking at you.
>>31342011Oh, silly me, the vote's over.>let's keep practising for the festivalOr>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.
Rolled 1>>31342024This sounds fun
Rolled 6>>31341991>>let's keep prsctising for the festival>>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.Bit more practice then get our strength back up.
Rolled 10>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.Try at least
Rolled 5>>31342024thisWe're an Exalted, fuck sleep
Rolled 6>>31341991So, how well-endowed is Tia's natural male form anyway? Above-average? Hung in a way that would make a mortal woman salivate? Hung in a way that would make a mortal woman flinch in phantom pain?Unusually small?
Rolled 9>>31342024Go with this one.Push it far, then sleep.
Rolled 10>>31342024>not fucking us while still dancing>>31342077EF, when will you let is literally fuck sleep?
Rolled 4>>31342077>We're an Exalted, fuck sleepUnless we pick up that no-sleep charm, we WILL pass out and fuck up without sleep. Sleep, food, and water are still all things exalts need.
Rolled 5>>31342024this. Only fuck while still dancing
Rolled 2>>31341991>male TiaSo Tia is normally a humanized Gardevoir, does this make male Tia a humanized Gallade?
Rolled 9>>31341991>>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.lets get well rested for the festival, and the ensuing ravishing of Tia and Smoke that shall come afterwards
Rolled 9>>31342097>male Tia a humanized Gallade
Rolled 5>>31342124best husbando of all timein both forms
Rolled 8>>31342024do thisWe'll take a quick nap right before the festival
Rolled 1>>31342124>>31342130ha ha ha hagardevoir can be male

Rolled 7>>31341991>you know the moves, now let's just dance through the night.
>>31342090Not if you're an Alchemical!Well, even as an Alchemical you still technically need to shove things down your food-tube every few days.
Rolled 3>>31342141>gardevoir can be maleYeah, but Gallade can't be female, so it works.
Rolled 3>>31342145No I do not, we are Tia's waifu and we admitted it long ago
Rolled 7>>31342024Lets do this>>31342145no anon. We are the waifu
Rolled 5>>31342166>shove things down your food-tubeMost people call that a mouth.
Rolled 7>>31342124>>31342130>Look up this artist>No mega GardevoirTia will never be as busty as Maka
Rolled 3>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.
Rolled 10>>31341991>you know the moves, now let's just dance through the night.which will probably turn into going to bed pretty quick. I'm surprised Tia's been able to resist the tassel bikini this long
>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.It does nobody any good if we are to worn out to perform at max when the time comes.
Rolled 7>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.
Rolled 5>>31342024As someone who says 'fuck sleep' on a regular basis, i support this action
Rolled 8>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually restAsk Tia if she can just hold us and cuddle all night. I would be super on board with that kind of romantic, tender intimacy.
Rolled 6>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.just cuddle with Tiashould also get her super horny for the after-dance fuck if she get's blueballed now
Rolled 6>>31342024thisbut only like five rounds of sex. We do need to sleep a little tonight
Rolled 1>>31342124>>31342130I imagined Male!Tia to be more muscular, but this is fine too
Rolled 2>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.we need to get some rest
Rolled 7>>31342024We don't need to sleep except every Physical days, right? we've got one more night of madness, so do this
>>31342384With Maka's current amount of physical exertion, I think it might be a good idea to get some extra rest even if she doesn't strictly NEED to.Even if a regular human only NEEDS to sleep 6-8 hours per day, if you've worked a 10 hour shift of hard labor, you'll want to just conk out for a while anyway.
Rolled 3>>31341991>you know the moves, now let's just dance through the night.
Rolled 5>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.
Rolled 10>>31342417Especially since we haven't slept in over 48 hours.
>>31341991>we chould go to bed, and actually rest.
Rolled 2>>31341991>>you know the moves, now let's just dance through the night.
>>31342488We haven't? Didn't we take a nap to recover from injury?
Rolled 8>>31342538After a day long orgy, we really should get a good nights rest
Rolled 5>>31342488>>31342550We fell asleep for a bit after the orgy, our health wouldn't have recovered otherwise
Social + Zenith = 3 9 9 8 2 3 7 = 4 successes"...see? What did I tell you?" You pant after your last round of dance, short on breath, held in Tia's arms. "You can dance.""...you're sure?" He does seem a bit more confident than when you started."Absolutely. You learned the moves, but... You're still a bit stiff. You don't still have dance in your blood."He takes your remark very seriously. "...what should I do?""Well, you learned the steps and moves for tomorrow. Now... Just dance. Have fun. Dance for your own enjoyment, without rules." You grab his shoulders and sommersault over him, landing just behind him and encircling his lower waist with your arms.Silently, he turns around, holding your hands, and taking a few tentative steps. You follow him, deciding that you are not going to guide him, corrdct her, or anything like at. You will follow his leadership.You dance the night away.As day breaks, utterly exhausted, you let yourself be carried in bed by Tia. You never danced this much, and you slowly realize that you've been awake for most of the last two days. Tiredness catches up to you.As Tia tucks you in bed, you joke: "aren't you going to ravage me tonight? Since you still have energy to go.""...you want to rest, right?" He whispers, with a goodnight kiss to your cheek."You don't." You note. That much is apparent by just a glance to his tiger pelt skirt. "You have some impressive willpower.""You were trying to break me?" He asks."A bit." You admit.>we should really rest.>do with me what you want tonight.>other
Rolled 7>>31342538We had an accidental 24 hour orgy instead of sleeping.
>>31342575>we should really rest.even Tia thinks we should rest
Rolled 1>>31342563resting and sleeping aren't the same thing.
Rolled 10>>31342575Just cuddle and rest now. But bet Tia he can't make us pass out from pleasure after the ceremony
Rolled 9>>31342575>>we should really rest.
>>31342575>>we should really rest.
Rolled 8>>31342575>we should really rest.
Rolled 3>>31342575>we should really rest.
Rolled 3>>31342575>we should really restWe'll make it up to him/her tonight.
>>31342575>I'd like you to just hold me until I fall asleep.Have to show Tia that there are other ways of being intimate than fucking each others brains out.Sometimes just cuddling can be even more fun.
>>31342575>>we should really rest.Need to be in top shape for our performance. We owe it to Smoke.
>>31342623This too, yes.
>>31338593>Mob-Dispersing Rebuke (1 Ess. Say something threatening or make a show of strength, roll social + dawn. Unless a unit has a heroic leader who can beat your roll, the unit immediately routs and disperses.)This seems like it'll be really useful once the Immaculates start getting annoyed with us and whipping up the common folk.
Rolled 4>>31342575>>we should really rest.We've just spent a full day fucking. Some rest please.
Rolled 6>>31342623yes cuddling is a given
Rolled 6>>31342677>Maka and Tia sleepin' in>unwashed masses show up makin' a ruckus>"OI. FUCK OFF.">[dispersing intensifies]

In bed together, Tia, whose monstrous endurance causes him to be not as tremendously tired as you, apparently feels like taking as he gently cuddles you to sleep.He can be really sweet and delicate when he wants to."...hey, Maka?" She whispers. "Remember yesterday night?""...not all of it." You reply. "It turned into a crowd bit by bit.""It did." He nods, caressing you with gentle touches."It was weird." You mumble, half-asleep by now. "I mean. They're mother and child. In bed together like that...""You didn't even realize." He smiles."Realize what?""They weren't in that bed for each other, Maka. They were there for you."The thought never crossed you."You're still not used to it. Did you look at yourself in a mirror? Anyone would want to be in bed with you." He kisses you. "Being the one who can spend evey night with you makes me the happiest man in Creation."After a short pause, he then says: "...and knowing that my wife is so powerful, so beautiful, so strong that so many people will want to share her bed... Makes me feel so proud. ...what about you? Do you like it?">the more the merrier>the more the merrier, when I'm with you>only those I care about>I wonder how many we can have together>having you is all I need>other?

Rolled 6>>31342872>the more the merrierI'd rather not say " when I'm with you"We already had sex without her and I plan to in the future
Rolled 3>>31342872I'm somewhere in a combination with>the more the merrier>only those I care about>having you is all I needSo basically, she prefers being with those she cares about but as long as she is there's no upper limit to the amount of fun one can have.But if she had to choose just one, she would choose Tia in a heartbeat.

Rolled 10I'm really against this "only those I care about" because it implies we'd never use sex to get something from someone, which we totally would
>>31342872>only those I care about
Rolled 3>>31342872>the more the merrier>I wonder how many we can have togetherI wonder if that will make her mention her kraken form
Rolled 5>>31343112We totally plan to if we can get that social sex charm we were talking about yesterday

Rolled 6>>31342872>the more the merrierI'd rather not restrict who we can have sex with
Rolled 1>>31343169Yes, I was agreeing with you
Rolled 5>>31343169She asked if we enjoyed having so many people wanting to share our bed, not if we would be willing to share our bed with people.So "only those I care about" means "yes, I like that those I care about like me, but I don't care about those I don't like."It doesn't mean we can't share their bed too, but we just don't like it (as much).
Rolled 6>>31342872>the more the merrier, when I'm with you>I wonder how many we can have together>having you is all I need
Rolled 9Is it just me, or is Tia getting less and less crazy the more she's with us? I feel she's gone from obsessive to mostly adorable
Rolled 8>>31343525It makes sense really, she spent years looking for her solar mate I bet she was going absolutely crazy without us, so now that she found us she's calmed down a lot
>>31343525That's because she is. She used to be crazy and obsessive because she had her five-dot Lunar bond pulling her violently and inexorably toward us for her entire Exalted life.Now that she's here and we've got a relatively happy life together she's fine. She has her waifu, all is right with the world.
Rolled 10>>31343525We explained that she was being cray and how she could tone it down, and because she loves us she's been trying to follow our advise
"...once we get our manse... I want a large bed." You mumble.'How large?" He asks, intrigued. "Like the one Silk made?""Larger. Large enough for everyone.""Everyone who?" Your Lunar asks."Everyone." Is your last word before peacefully drifting into sleep. Cradled in his strong arms, holding on to him like a pillow, it makes you feel safe. Like, with him - or her - at your side, you could take over the world.[session end]2 xp (base)1 xp (dance!)There wasn't much talk about xp expenditures, so I'm honestly not sure if I should have Maka buy something. I know that, for a few threads, any kind of social charm will not be available anymore. This could become permanent if the UMI discussions continue.
Rolled 2>>31343575>. I know that, for a few threads, any kind of social charm will not be available anymore.so we can't buy Terrifying Glorious Presence?
Rolled 2>>31343575Can we buy the charm that makes us not need sleep? If we keep up the constant orgies, which seems likely, we'll need it
Rolled 3>>31343575We talked about it a bit earlier and last time everyone seemed pretty much decided on either eclipse or TGP, we could totally afford both right now, if that social thing applies to now we could get Tireless Hero's Soul instead
Rolled 6>>31343575>"Larger. Large enough for everyone.">"Everyone who?" Your Lunar asks.>"Everyone."I never though saying you wanted to bed the whole world could sound adorable
>>31343575Can we at least get Tireless Hero's Soul or Spirit-Discerning Glance? We'll need a lot of endurance when we'll visit Water Court and seeing them all at all times would do a lot of good when it comes for surprises. In fact, seeing gods, ghosts and demons at all times is really fucking useful in general
Rolled 6No Terrifying Glorious Presence?I'm for more Eclipse, then
>>31343638>The entire manse is one gigantic bedroom
Rolled 1>>31343681We can get eclipse and still have enough for another charm, if we can't get TGP I want Tireless Hero's Soul, Spirit-Discerning Glance, or Graceful Crane Style
>>31343575At that point we really just need a bog-ass padded room.
Rolled 2>>31343575Since we can't buy social charms right now I'd go with eitherTireless Hero's SoulGraceful Crane StanceorSpirit-Discerning GlanceIn that order
>>31343731>Tireless Hero's Soul>Graceful Crane StanceEh no.>Spirit-Discerning GlanceOkay I guess. I'd prefer more Zenith though
>>31343724>Reminder that Maka's score is five as of nowWe're still a long ways to go.Secret counting on her fingers in the last two panels is adorable.
Rolled 2>>31343819If we add Silk we can bump it up one more at least
>>31343724I'm not entirely sure that padding a room with swamp ass would be practical. Besides where would we store all the accoutremants and paraphernelia that will accumulate. For charms I'd vote Tireless Hero's Soul.We're going to have to have sex with the whole ocean and water spirits are very fickle. I wouldn't put it past them to become so enamored that they don't allow us to leave and we have to swim out the hard way.
Rolled 8>>31343819Secret is always adorable.Now I want us to have our own Secret
Rolled 9>>31343575>I know that, for a few threads, any kind of social charm will not be available anymore. This could become permanent if the UMI discussions continue.wut?re; voting, I'm all for>Terrifying Glorious Presence
Rolled 4>>31343880He just said social charms aren't available, you QUOTED him saying it
>>31343880tdlr: Utilitarians and Kantians won't shut up, so we aren't allowed access to social powers for a while
>>31343851>I'm not entirely sure that padding a room with swamp ass would be practical.Smart-ass. You know what I meant.
Seems like the option with the most support is Tireless Hero's Soul. Gonna go with that.Probably no game tomorrow, maybe in two days.Thanks for following this quest this far!
Rolled 6We could also get eclipse 3 since we have enough XP for it no matter what else we buy
Rolled 1>>31343966I agree, we should get that too
Rolled 5>>31343724But silk and flow would probably prefer if there were some shallow pools or something
>>31343851>I'm not entirely sure that padding a room with swamp ass would be practical.We could ask Silk. She likes playing sex-bed.
Rolled 1>>31343892I was asking why they won't be available
Rolled 1>>31343999But she can't participate if she's the bed.Addendum, she can't ACTIVELY participate if she's the bed
Rolled 2>>31343955might want to post such a thing with your trip on EF, cause I know that most support was for TGP earlier
Rolled 10>>31343995it's a water aspected manse, so I could see shallow pools and waterfalls.We should definitely include large baths for groups
>>31343575Any chance of seeing what's available even of we aren't buying anything?
Rolled 6>>31344014People arguing about UMI, like he said.

>>31344022>(Silk) can't ACTIVELY participate if she's the bedPretty sure she could eith by sprouting cilia/tentacles or by just being Fae and fucking logic.
Rolled 4>>31344061>fucking logic.so, with Silk and Logic we're up to seven, right?
>>31344051Well, at least people aren't suggesting we follow social contract theory.
Rolled 10>>31344072Like that but bigger, yes.Preferably with hot water
Rolled 4>>31344067We're also gonna do the ocean, at least a part of it.That's gotta count for at least two, right?
Having an army of first circle demons is a three point manse power.Harem of Nehoma anyone?
>>31344028Yes, sorry.>>31343955 is me.And I'm seeing more support for Tireless Hero's Soul.Especially considering that I'm putting a stop to the ability to buy social charms for a few threads, hoping this will shut up the people having UMI discussions for a bit.If it doesn't, we'll just stop voting and I'll just decide what Maka buys with her XP on my own.
>>31344054Oh, so HSDD and TGP are unavailable for purchase, but still taking up spots in the selection menu. Makes sense, sorry for the bother.
Rolled 6>>31344184Tireless hero soul and Eclipse 3 are what I'm seeing
Rolled 8>>31344184Can we get Eclipse too?I'm pretty sure we still have enough for it
>>31344184>decide on my own.This is probably the best way, especially since maka doesn't exert any concious effort to learn charms.Just make her improve at whatever we've been doing.
Rolled 9>>31344174>>31344072are those official Exalted pics?
>>31344279It's Exalted stuff and it's drawn by Melissa Uran but by her own initiative.
>>31344262Honestly that would be really annoying.
Rolled 7We get 2 manses, a 2 dot and a 3 dot one, right? I think we should turn one into a fortress manse, with essence artillery and traps and stuff.Make the other one our actual home, with large outdoor baths, giant bed, shrine, and an army of neohma in skimpy maid outfits
Rolled 3>>31344326One of them has to be a temple manse for Flow and the other water elementals, the three dot manse we can do whatever we want with it
>>31344326I thought we were only getting the one?
>>31344314...I am interested and intrigued. Where would her NSFW gallery be?
>>31344368You have both. The spirits just requested the one on the island to be built as a temple to them, but it would still be your propriety.
>>31344394Oh, I took that to mean it (its hearthstones) would be attuned to them, not us.Thanks for clarifying.
>>31344326>Neomah>wearing anything but jewelry
So if we're dancing as a priestess of the Sun and a priest of the Moon are Sol and Luna going to get Essence/ambrosia out of this as well?Are they going to notice our prayer festival here?
>>31344653they get tons of prayers all the time, so I think it's unlikely we'll get their attention
>>31344669We're Exalts leading prayer, though.
Rolled 9>>31344653I'd normally say no, but we are a Zenith, and Sol did come see us that one time, if we ever get to do that big ass wedding we want with Tia I do hope we get a vision of them there though
>>31344690It's not really a prayer to him, though. May be rude of him to intervene
>>31344702I didn't say he was going to intervene, I just wondered if he was going to notice us doing this. Likewise for Luna (although she might intervene, she enjoys fucking with people and general meddling a bit more than UCS)
>>31344699I could see Luna as a wedding guest, she has multiple bodies after all.Sol though is way too addicted to the games to come.
>>31344774EF said he's going to change stuff and we had the UCS respond to prayer before.The Games might not be a thing here. Or be much more low-key.Or maybe EF just wants the UCS being a bro.
>>31344774At the very least it's polite to invite him. He's basically our new dad.Just because our dad has a substance-abuse problem doesn't mean we shouldn't give him an invitation.
>>31344819I can see him change some things, but UCS being busy with the games and thus not fixing the world is kind of a cornerstone of the setting, that's like having the Empress still around
>>31343575>I know that, for a few threads, any kind of social charm will not be available anymore. This could become permanent if the UMI discussions continue.I feel dissatisfied by this. It does not really matter which side I am on, but if things are like this the both the pro and the con UMI side are suppressed. How do you exactly expect us to resolve this? We are not going to get along.Either take the UMIs out of the game or let us have them. Even flipping a coin is better than this.
