Last Thread : http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/32141485/Twitter : https://twitter.com/81DEsW1xz4NYou are Joshua Thirteen, UNAAF Special Forces Division Seven. A soldier of the highest degree, and have been fighting the war against the demons for the past eighty years. You were winning the battles, but losing the war. Even in the horrors of war, you built a life for yourself with a woman, Lauren, whom you had saved. But humanity was betrayed, you were betrayed. When you recovered, you found yourself in an unprecedented world, a backwards world living in fear of the demons you very nearly triumphed against.You searched for the answers to how such a world came to pass. As you gathered power back around yourself from your demons who had stolen it away, your memories returned slowly. First of Lauren’s prognosis and incompatibility with the transdifferentiation organ. Then, with Matt as the two of you survived yet another suicide, and joined forces to fight back against the military that had betrayed you. Then you found a third memory from the soul of a demon you stole, but did not contract. That your brother killed your wife and left you for dead.But even with the immense strength you gained from the fire demon, it isn’t enough for you to be certain of victory over your betrayer, as you are barely at half strength. So you turned to your remaining demons. Victoria refused to return her power to you, though you still have her blades. So you turned your attention to finding Scath, and came upon him using your form to sleep with Cyn. Between him and Alice, you learned that Matt had been coordinating all of your allies and using them, waiting for you to return now that he has grown in strength.Now you stand in the plaza around the statue of the Demon Lords, and a group of guards have confronted you and seem to want to arrest you.>Ignore them and find a way to Beelzebub below you>Tell them something>Kill one or two of them>Other
>>32180954>>Ignore them and find a way to Beelzebub below you
>>32180954>Ignore them and find a way to Beelzebub below you
>>32180954>>Kill one or two of them
Alright, well, do you have any particular methods of finding the path down?
>>32181343Inspect the statues
“Sir, you match the description of a wanted fugitive. You’re going to have to come with us,” the lead guard says as he steps forward with the piece of paper. You glance over at them. The guards are nothing special, just regular men who’ve stayed active. Their combat training is most likely minimal. You look over the paper again, it’d be more accurate to call it parchment really, it’s thick and discolored. With the sun at the current angle, you can see the grains of the paper; it’s certainly not made of wood. Some kind of reed perhaps, but you haven’t seen any reeds.“What charges are those?” you ask as you start tapping your foot on the ground near a small vent in the cobblestone. You can faintly hear the echoes from beneath the ground, but there’s so much ambient noise you can’t get a clear picture.“Destruction of property, attempted murder of a soldier of Lyr, assault and kidnapping of a noblewoman, desecration of the High Temple, and conspiracy to commit high treason. Put down your arms and come with us immediately,” the guard responds as his men fan out around you.You think for a moment and nod. “I guess I did do those things,” you comment as you choose a particular spot in the plaza.“So you confess?”“No, but I will do this,” you say before lifting your foot and stomping it into the ground. The shockwave ripples through the ground, knocking the men to the ground and cracking something metal deep beneath you. You hold your ear up for a moment as you drop to the bottom of the crater you made, listening to the metal echo, and zero in on the nearest entrance.>Just sprint down>Say something on your way out>Other
>>32181343not really...should have asked Alice how to get to the lower tunnels.Sewers is the only choice unless we spot what could have been an elevator of some sort.Maybe by scent of really rusty oily thing, maybe by knocking the ground and find where is hollow...
>>32181576>Just sprint down
>>32181576>Say something on your way out"You might want to check on your noblewoman, if your lucky, you might stop her murder"That might get them off our ass for a bit.
>>32181576>>Say something on your way outYou can add that to the charges too
I would just combine, but one of the suggestions could impact quite a bit, so I'll wait for a tie breaker
Alright, well, I'm just moving on with snarky sprint awayCan I get a d100 for excellence?
>>32181888No, I disagree with this course of action, I feel the other reply has more merit then just being snarky.
>>32181912Well, reply faster next time. Or provide a good argument for it when you post.It's not like anyone is going to believe these guys anyways
>79“Guess that’s more charges for you,” you say before sprinting towards the entrance. You disappear before a single one of them can even get to their feet again, and slip into the alleys surrounding the plaza. The entrance is of course disguised, but your impact shook free a bunch of rust and trapped oil, so the scent is unmistakable.You quickly find a number of broken palettes and crates leaning against the back of a derelict building. You grab hold of them and try to move them, but it seems that they’re actually a disguised door, so you change your grip and rip the whole thing off. The bolts and hinges and chains each take turns snapping apart with the wood, giving you a tangle of broken pieces to toss aside.There’s a staircase below, not an original Epsilon either, but rotting wood that had been assembled a few years back. You grumble a bit and jump down, planting your hands on either side of the tunnel to throw yourself down without putting any weight on the staircase lest it break.You hit the bottom of the tunnel, denting the floor, and straighten up as the lights come on. “Oh, interesting,” you say as you see three demi-humans aiming rifles at you. Ad hoc pieces of rubbish, but they can throw a slug.>Response?
>>32182039So it was a trap, we're walking right into his hands, I say we leave and find our other demons first.
>>32182039Do we have any sort of weapons?
>>32182039Beat them up
>>32182095As I said in the OP, you have Victoria's blades. Short things, but they were made nearly perfectly. They won't win a contest of strength like your blade can, but will cut an enemy just the same.
>>32182039try and knock them out quickly>>32182073and our other demons wont be guarded?
>>32182073Please, we used to kill Alpha demons, these rats are nothing to us.
>>32182118Slice and dice time then
>>32182130I'm not saying they'll be a problem, but we're walking into a trap that has had 100 yrs to be prepared.>>32182122They might, or they might not, but walking into a trap you know nothing about is always a stupid idea.
>>32182039just a simple "ah, what do you you guys have against me?" should sort things out, no need to go murderhobo on their asses
>>32182039"Let me pass and i won't hurt you, i'm looking for Beelze."If they refuse, we knock 2 out and have the third one as a guide.
>>32182039 asks what's interesting before starting a fight
>>32182213The "Oh, Interesting" comment was just that there are three demi-humans with modern ish firearms, in Epsilon.
Vote is for assaulting before they shoot youCan I get a d100 for excellence?
Rolled 14>>32182262give me 1
>>32182243woops completely misread that>>32182271fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck
>>32182305Tis but a flesh wound[/spoiler]no.
>>32182305should probably go for it
>>32182305I'd be ok with taking itthen again I'm always ok with taking itbecause I blindly trust you to not fuck us over
>>32182305Don't even think about it.
>>32182305You're turning us into a girl?! Nuoooooo!!!!
>>32182305nahif you're gonna kill us with shit-tier enemies because of a single failed roll you might as well end the quest already.
>>32182432I dont see any problem there as long as we are cute
>14“Naaf scum!” the ape in the middle shouts. Before you scan say anything back, the kid on the left fires. His barrel wasn’t aligned with you so the round flies uselessly between your legs. Instinct kicks in. Both of Victoria’s blades end up in your hands in the time it takes for you to clear the distance to him. One swipe cuts the gun in half, the next opens his throat.The other two open fire on you, shouting unintelligible garbage at you. They’re not nearly trained enough though and can’t keep up with you. You run wide, almost running on the walls of the room, and every one of their rounds goes wide. You cut open the Ape’s back, severing his spine, and move to the last one. He tries to pull the trigger on you, but he should be empty.You don’t bother with your blade and just strike him in the chest with your fist. His ribs practically turn to dust and he flies across the room, but not before reflexively pulling the trigger. There was one bullet left in it, and it rips a whole through your side, painting the wall behind you with black blood and bits of rib. “Fuck,” you groan, clutching your injury as you watch the wolf man fall to the ground, foaming at the mouth and writhing in pain. You don’t even want to imagine what you did to his heart.You try to close the wound in your side, only to get a gurgling growl from your stomach.>Just continue to Beelzebub>Raid their supplies for food>Other
>>32182305does this gif give anyone else an erection?
>>32182544>Raid their supplies for food>Cannabilize their corpses for food if necessary.
>>32182544>Just continue to Beelzebub
>>32182544>Raid their supplies for foodwe need to heal
>>32182544>>Raid their supplies for foodeat their bodiesAlso, are their rifles any use to us? Maybe they have melee weapons with longer reach than the blades we have? (What kind of blades do we have anyway?)
>>32182627Two of these, but single edged and with technobabble steel strengtheningThe rifles seem like they'd jam every other magazine
>>32182627victoria's pair of... butterfly swords? (or just twin daggers, maybe) and a rifle would probably be useful, unless we can throw a rock harder and further than a bullet
>>32182544brutal...>Raid their supplies for foodDo not eat them, no cannibalism.
>>32182544>>Raid their supplies for foodIf it's not enough...well there's 3 fresh corpses.
>>32182689i forgot to add>steal money
>>32182673>The rifles seem like they'd jam every other magazineDo we know enough about guns and maintenance that we could somehow fix at least one of them (likely cannibalizing the others for spare parts)? And how many rounds did they have left?
>>32182737>Do we know enough about guns and maintenance that we could somehow fix at least one of themMaybe, would certainly take a bit of time. You'd have to look around to find their ammunition.Vote is to raid their supplies
>>32182737It's probably more that the guns are over 100 years old I imagine
>>32182673>Two of these, but single edged and with technobabble steel strengtheningSo they are probably better quality then anything we could find in the near future?Still, I think we should get a massive Berserk-tier sword which is basically just a massive slab of steel.
>>32182753Then lets take their guns and ammo. I hope at least one of them had a backpack or something. We might want to try fixing one rifle later.
>>32182754Hey, if the gun is maintained the entire time age won't damage it much.>>32182758You haven't been following from the beginning, have you?
>>32182780agreed, let's pack them and see what we can do with them later
You look around the room you’re in. It appears to have originally been some hovel in Gamma, expanded by tearing down the flimsy walls between the other homes. There are a number of doors, both mundane and blast, leading to different areas of the understructure. But, the men you killed were guarding a number of supplies. You quickly open some of the boxes and bags to see what they contain. You find a number of old bullets, a few dozen, along with a bag of homemade gunpowder and a small bag of primers for recasing. You toss those aside, far too unreliable.Then you find what you were looking for; dehydrated rations and a gallon of fresh water. The bricks of calories can hardly be called food to a normal person, more of a building material really. You’re not sure what the primary ingredient is, but there’s allegedly real meat and corn packed into every kilogram block. The instructions on the century old food say to soak it in water for an hour to feed a squad of four for half a week. You just bite a hunk of it off, grind it between your teeth, and wash it down with some water. Reminds you of the days before ambrosia.“The gunshots came from over here!” someone shouts above you. >Response?
>>32182940"Yeah, we got the bastard, come quick!"
>>32182940Grab a gun
>>32182940hide behind a (blast) door and prevent them from opening it, they'll probably think the old thing is stuck (let's also try not to bleed in front of the door too much)
>>32182940hidethe fuck do they even know what gunshots areor guns
>>32183047>cocaine is illegal>therefore the police can't recognize cocaine
>>32182940is there any other way out where we could flee to?
>>32183000neat idea, we mimic a voice tell them an intruder is moving on their way, that should buy us some time for more food.
>>32183069There are other ways out of the substructure, but not in your immediate vicinity
>>32183065You might wanna read the previous threads before you start assuming you know what people are talking about.
>>32183113I'm pretty sure this guy>>32183065is in the right actually. I shouldn't be contradicting myself right now when I say that while the Dragon Code and the Lyr theocracy and such all prohibit firearms, I have commented several times about firearms still being a thing in the ghetto. Off the top of my head I'm only recalling Alice's comments to the blacksmith, but there should have been more.
>>32183157Brb rereading previous threads myself.
>>32183192Do let me knowVote seems to be for grabbing a gun and getting behind the blast door, more or less. Yes?
Use Scath's power to turn into one of the wolfman, try to make it like one of the dead guys lost his marbles and tried to kill us all.
>>32183261something like that, I guessOr hide whatever is the best place to hide
>>32183283Can we do this? Will they not automatically smell the elf on us?
>>32183306The guards are humans, and a full body transformation is a bit out of the scope of your body for the same reason you don't grow horns when you have Akab's power
You toss the rest of the brick into your mouth and pocket the other two they had as you drain the last of the water. You grab one of their guns and sling it over your shoulder as you wipe your lips off. “They’re in the tunnels! They must be below. Come on, we have to catch them now!” the guards shout as you walk over to the blast door. You can hear the thumping of their boots and the rattling of their chainmail as they gather around the entrance.But they’re hesitant to descend, giving you enough time to dig your fingers under the bottom lip of the blast door. The frame is rusted and tight, so you have to fix your footing and dig your fingers in a bit deeper before you grunt and lift the hundred kilo slab. The entire tunnel grinds and squeaks as you force it up enough to slip under.Luckily, you manage to slide under the bottom of it and drop it back down before the guards work up the courage to descend. The door slams back into its seat, sealing you in truly total darkness. Beelzebub is close, but deeper still. As you wait for your eyes to adjust to the darkness, you hear four guards descend the wooden steps and start swearing in disgust as they look over your carnage.You blink your eyes at the darkness. You’re certain you should have your night reflectors by now, but you’re still in complete darkness.>Response?
>>32183439uhm... fire demon powers, use them, set ablaze something.
>>32183439with what happened to our ears/nose, it wouldn't surprise me if our eyes got damaged too...say, if we pierced them, how long would GRD take to regrow them?
>>32183439>>32183565maybe even just use them to provide light
>>32183596>shave the cartilage from our eyesYou might want to take a moment and rethink this.
>>32183596what? our head is all right, isn't it?We're just in complete total darkness where not even a bit light is, that's why we can't adjust.>>32183439Can we make sparks by quickly dragging one of the swords along the walls?
>>32183596Pretty sure you're physically incapable of destroying your own eyes
>>32183625where did i say anything about cartilage? >>32183654ah, right, i guess that settles it. let's just wait and heal
>>32183654? like are our eyes super hard?
>>32183638wait, doesn't a doppleganger have some mind trick powers ? we are just being played... maybe ?
>>32183638Probably, but it'd damage the blades>>32183565Keep in mind, you're aren't exactly fireproof, and the only way you could make a fire by yourself would be using up some contact combustibles>>32183690No one is physically capable of destroying their own eyes without extreme duress. Built in restrictions
>>32183721I'm positive that's not true. I'd prove you wrong on webcam but I don't want to be blind for the rest of my life over an internet squabble.
>>32183721>Probably, but it'd damage the bladesdo we have anything on us which we could use like that? Maybe we could feel around, there might be some steel pipes or whatever still lying around.
Wait, the lights were working in the previous room, right? So, maybe, search for a light-switch?
>Keep in mind, you're aren't exactly fireproof, and the only way you could make a fire by yourself would be using up some contact combustiblesok, can we wrap some clothing around a steel pipe or a blade, spit some alchool (can we do that ?) and using it as a tourch ?and, what are Beelzebub powers ?
So, do you guys have a final plan?>>32183889What you'd be spitting is a bit more dangerous than alcoholAlso, Beelzebub is a doppelganger, a mind control specialist essentially. What Victoria can do, but a hundred times more dangerous
>>32183932>failed mind control roll for Voctoria>this guy is hundred times worseThis is going to be fun
Break off a big enough rock from a wall. Lift the blast wall again and put the rock under it for that it stays lifted for few centimeters and allows a small shaft of light in. This should be enough to have our eyes adjust.
>>32183988This is a steel tunnel. The bedrock is far below.
>>32183932no allucination then.no, a fucking pitch black room is hundred times more dangerous.
>>32184022Oh, then lets shear of a bit of steel from the walls and use that you make parks by dragging it hard against walls.
Jesus guys, no one even thought of shifting our vision spectrum? We're belting out shitloads of IR
>>32184085we can do that?
>>32184156That would fall under a subset of Scath's powers, yes.
>>32184178then start writing.>>32184085thank you anon.
>>32184178well, fuck, lets do that then.Jeez, why did you make us puzzle this out for half an hour if we had such a power?
>>32184178>>32184085You should have told us this earlier Fronk.Let's do it, I guess.
>>32184221Because it's a boring answer and I wanted to see how you'd all handle it.
This is the greatest trap Matt could ever devised.
>>32184178You gonna have to give us a summary of what our demons can do at a point, or a reminder if it was already posted.
>>32184276>you switch your eyes over to IR>the room is empty except for one thing>He wrote Overthinking on the wall
>>32184294>you hear the sound of rushing water
>>32184340>there is a countdown timer on the wall and a button on a pedestal>the door is locked
You squeeze your eyes shut and focus Scath’s energy on them. They start watering heavily as you reassemble the reflectors into nerve cells. Soon enough, you start to see a dull red glow, even with your eyes closed. Everything is still fuzzy and you didn’t get the cells lined up quite right, causing strange distortions, but you can see, technically. The infrared receptors are working, but you haven’t used them in years.Back in the day you put out so much heat that you would nearly blind yourself, but now you have the fire demon’s soul in you. The steel tunnel is reflecting your light back as if you were a flood light. Holding your hand up to shield your eyes only makes it worse until you kill off some of your new receptors so you can take a proper look.The new tunnel section has been used recently, but there’s still a thick layer of grime on every surface. Someone walked through here a few days ago. You can’t discern any details without proper light, but you can easily navigate the tunnels.You proceed forward, leaving the guards behind. Several doors and passageways are collapsed or otherwise filled with debris and impassable, but there is one meandering path through all of it that eventually leads you to a ladder down, to the level Beelzebub is on. As soon as you put your weight on the old rungs though, they snap off. Thankfully, the shaft is narrow enough that you are able plant your arms on either side and slow yourself down. You still hit the ground hard enough that you wince though.“Who is it this time?” The voice is sleepy and terribly drawn out. Even though they are speaking from a far distance away from you, they didn’t bother raising their voice above a whisper. Must be your demon.>Response?
>>32184470>"yo it's josh, gimme my power back"
>>32184470"This time? You get a lot of visitors down here, 'bub?"
>>32184470"sup' beel? long time, right?"
>>32184470"Your favoritist person in the whole world now hand over my power so I can tear Matt's arm off and beat him with it"
>>32184470Walk to him."Did you miss me?"
“I’m back Beelzebub,” you say as you look around the tunnels. You’re definitely in Epsilon now, most of the tunnels are so small rats would struggle with them. Ancient pipes and cables still string from hook to hook and tunnel to tunnel, covered in spider webs and some kind of grime.“Is that you, Joshua?” the demon responds, his voice echoing from several different tunnels at once. You had thought it would be a straight access, but doppelgangers love mazes.“Been a while, hasn’t it?” you say as you start choosing your path as best you can, mapping your choices in your head.“Has it? All I know is at some point my simulation broke down. Some years passed until Matthew found me and brought me a new one. I’ve been enjoying it ever since. I think I might be old. Older than I should be,” Beelzebub explains as you find a few dead ends. “I can hear your voice, but I can’t see you. Where are you, Joshua?”“Coming towards you, keep talking so I can find my way through this fucking maze,” you respond before kicking open a grate door.“I can’t move my body any more. I don’t remember the last time I was able to either. Have you seen Lyrra? She was supposed to bring me a new simulation but she never did,” Beelzebub says, giving you the last hint to finally find his room.Your demon is decrepit with age. His muscles have atrophied beyond use, his rotting skin is so taught it would probably tear just from being moved, and his fruiting bodies have swelled up and covered his entire torso. You can’t see his head either, the fungus has attached itself to the External Neural Uplink around his skull. There’s light in this room at least, and not all of it is coming from the machine behind him, some of it is sneaking in through the ceiling above.1/2
“What the fuck happened to you?” you ask as the machine whirrs up and you watch a tube inserted into his back light up with a thin ambrosia. Another tube sucks out a blackened bile and Beelzebub sighs.“I’ve gotten old.”"You're knocking on death's fucking door," you say as you walk up to him. He doesn't have the strength to even lift a hand."Isn't that what you've always done?""Not like this.""Well, what are you here for?">Response?2/2
>>32184831Can you just like give me all your power before you croak?
>>32184831Im here for my power
>>32184831I'm back in business. I'd need power, all of it. I can help you stave off your potential death, but right now I'm rather weak so it'll be a rough ride.Or I can force you to "give up" your power, you have any preference?
>>32184815>Have you seen Lyrra? She was supposed to bring me a new simulation but she never did"No, I haven't. Everything has gone to shit out there who knows what happened to her."also that we have come for power but that was a given
>>32184870>>32184933guys, we can't let him die. We would kneel over due to corruption seeping back into us.
>>32184831"Are you following Matt orders? What are they?"> I think I might be old. Older than I should beyeah, it's almost a miracle you are still alive.
Demanding your power back then
“I’m here for my power, the power you took from me when I needed it,” you state. Beelzebub doesn’t move, but manages to make a whistling like noise as he thinks. “Will you give it back?”“I suppose I could. Though it would likely be the end of my life. It matters little to me though, I’ve lived for eons in the machines your people have provided me. I am old and do not mind this life ending. Perhaps if the Dragon is truthful, I will be given new life, though whatever rebirth I have will surely pale to the fantasies I’ve lived,” Beelzebub explains. Then the machine activates again. You hear a rubber bellows move and Beelzebub’s chest inflates till bile bursts from the pores in his mycelium, then his chest deflates again and the machine chirps happily before squeezing saline into him.“You’re barely alive right now,” you say as you walk forward and kneel next to him.“I was only hanging on in hopes that Lyrra would bring me her new simulation. She always made the best. Have you ever seen the mists of Jupiter up close while sipping on authentic Indian tea? I have, and it was bliss for many a year. I fancied myself a bit of a fisherman you know. There were monsters down in those storms, and I had such a nice seat up on Titan.”>Take his power>Other
>>32185301>>OtherIf we take his power and he dies then it is over for us too (sooner or later). The corruption will kill us sooner or later.We need to find another way, I don't know which but we have to. Maybe we need to find Lyrra and her simulation.
>>32185301>"wow ur a nerd">Take his power
>>32185301>>OtherLet him talk while he do his thing, maybe it'll keep his mind off. A bit of small talk.
>>32185301"Did Matt tell you anything?"
>>32185301Can't we give him a bit of power like we did with Victoria?
>>32185301>>Take his powerMaybe in the next life you will be a fisherman
>>32185430Victoria's body is able to sustain itself on it's own, his isn't. You could get him back into action, but it would be a constant drain on your energy rather than a one time expenditure.
>>32185301"sounds like you had a fun life my friend, rest well now.">Take his power
>>32185481What would it takes to have him self sustained?
>>32185515You'd need a miracle, which you could do with the Dragon's power.
>>32185515Ambrosia i think, lots of it.
>>32185532so we have to make a deal with the dragon?Great.
Let's do this final destination styleLink here with just the number, no >, no nothing elseVote closes in five minutes1 - Take power2 - Leave him alive and talk
>>32185649talk about what ? he is so oblivious of the world outside and he's ready to die, don't tell me you grow a heart and want to prolong his existence ?

>90>Deal Taken>100>55 points accumulated66% total power“Look, I need your power back so that I can kill Matt, but I don’t want to kill you. Not the least of which reasons are it will end up killing me,” you explain as you put your hand on his chest.“All is fine by me, but if you do leave me alive, I ask that you bring me a new simulation. The real world is dark and boring, and I can’t move my body as freely as a songbird,” Beelzebub says as you pry open his seal. He seems to have a withered grip on it still, but with a slight application of will, the energy breaks free and flows back into you through your arm. The seal on your chest corresponding to the doppelganger lights up as his energy returns to you.Lights start blinking quickly on the machine and an alarm goes off as you feel his body sag inwards. The change is subtle, but the flesh around his torso seems to wilt until a new transfusion of ambrosia is forced into him.“Guess I’m not dead quite yet. Maybe I will see Lyrra’s simulation. Do you think you could bring it to me next time you see her?” he asks.>Response?
>>32186471"If she'll give it to me."
>>32186471She is already on her way, just hang in there a little longer
>>32186507>>32186504You should also indicate direction for after your parting words. he doesn't have the strength to sustain a conversation any more
>>32186471"yes, i promise"
>>32186519Leave to track down other demons
The Fire Demon 35/35Dragon 0/40Beelzebub 10/10Akab 0/12Victoria 0/15GRD 8/8Magpie 7/7Scath 6/8Total : 66/100Beelzebub, the doppelganger was fourth demon to be bound (10% total power, 10% accessed) This binding is primarily to minimize the downsides of the other bindings. Provides increased resistance to mental illusions. Prevents scar tissue from forming and expedites proper healing. The apathy also tempers Akab’s influence.Figured you may want my notes on the matter
>>32186607I guess go after Akab now then
>>32186627>>32186588You guys can be a bit more imaginative and involved you knowAlso, I can only do two or three more updates before taking an extended break till late tonight when I'll update while doing homework.
>>32186660What is Akab like? Physically and mental
>>32186607I want to go after the dragon 1st then we can pick up the rest fairly easy afterwards
>>32186684He's basically an orc with a temper. So an orc.
Are you sure you guys want to leave the city to track down Akab/the Dragon? There aren't enough people voting to be the true majority, but no one is voting against.
>>32186824we're not voting against because we wanna do it too and the option we want is winning
>>32186824>>32186660uhm... let's... uhm... let's... i can't think of anything.SWORD, find our sword! go to lake!
>>32186824We could go raid some nobleman's house for guns first.
>>32186864>>32186824Sword would be a help so take a break from demon hunting and lets grab that
>>32186921or Cyn, we could ally with the resistence...
Final Destination1 - Akab2 - Sword (Search the Water Filtration System)3 - Dragon
>>32186921why raid a nobleman when we could go to Naaf at Matt's house ?
>>32187034no '>' only number.
>>32187076that's still wrong...link to the post and number...
>>32187076>>32187109>>32187115Vote closed a while ago, but I'll still count the 2 anyways to move things along
You stand up from your withered demon as you watch him reactivate his ENU. His breathing is too weak for him to carry a conversation anymore, so there is nothing left for you to do here. You look up at the ceiling, thinking about the city above. Victoria is up there, but she’s the only demon you can call upon for power. The Dragon and Akab are distant from you, but their power is great.You clench your fist and assess yourself. Thanks to the power given by the fire demon, you should be stronger than Matt should be. The Dragon wouldn’t have contracted with him, but Alice did say that he increased his strength somehow. Without knowing how though, the only thing you can do to prepare is increase your own strength. But no matter how strong you are, you won’t be assured of victory with Victoria’s weapons, you need your own weapons, ones made to utilize all of your strength. You need your sword.Alice mentioned that you were in the water filtration system, the filters retrofitted to recycle all the water draining into the central reservoir and distill it to be potable for the people living inside the Annihilation Wall. For you to have been put in it means you must have been in a reserve tank of some sort, and as you recall you near UNAAF headquarters when you confronted Matt. He couldn’t have carried you far after downing you, so there are very few places you could have been. And all of them should be reachable by the maglev system.1/2
The room Beelzebub is in is a small hub of pipes and tunnels, and there is just enough light for you to see the faded signs pointing to the transportation system. You leave the old demon behind and make your way over to the transport tunnels. With the state of the sub structure, you don’t expect anything to still be working, but as soon as you step foot on the loading dock, you can feel the electricity in the rails. A cloud of dusty air rolls over the station and you step back from the edge as a single train car slides to a stop in front of you and opens its door.“It’s good to see you again Dear,” Lyrra says from static ridden and disused speakers, but the voice is unmistakably your wife’s. “The two of us should have a talk, if you wouldn’t mind stepping in.”“Cut it with the voice duplication,” you growl at the AI.“Can’t, sorry. I had to purge any unneeded cores to maintain minimal functionality. You’ll have to bear with it. I thought you would like to hear your wife’s voice though. It’s been a very very long time since you’ve seen her. You weren’t a very good husband to her, you know? What kind of man abandons her like that?” Lyrra asks and you throw Victoria’s blade straight through the speaker, cutting it off. A moment later, the station speakers start working so she can keep talking. “Rude. Now are you going to come see me, or what?”2/2And that's thread. I'll archive in a moment. Comments? Next thread Tuesday maybe.
>>32187375Purging stuff to maintain even minimal functionality? Sounds like AI had it rough too.
>>32187375Beelze was quite a surprise, poor fella can't enjoy the real world anymore.Plz no more puzzle...Can we raid Matt's palace? I bet we'll find interesting stuff in there, i promise i won't vote to kill any of his contracts.
>>32187673Oh there will be more puzzle. Even when you may not realize it is a puzzleGoing to Matts place would require going to Naaf
>>32187760So, we already done a few of them.No problem, how far is Naaf ?
>>32187375fucking AI, i have a bad feeling about her neat thread, poor beel
>>32188096You've actually missed most of them I think.I put more thought into the things that happen than you give me credit for I think
So, you have my attention for question answering if you have any.Also, sorry for going "Oh, you want your sword? Too bad, someone else needs your attention"I'm not going to post more updates, but I think I can churn out Beel's memory fragment tonight
>>32188719how stronk is matt now scale 1-10
>>32188741As I've said before, he's like 60% of your total power. To your present knowledge. You have to find out first hand if that has changed
>>32188786Gonna need bigger guns. Also going to need to kick the dragon in the face till he starts spilling.
>>32189394You are much weaker than the Dragon. But you'll only need bigger guns if you believe Alice.
>>32189451>Much weakerOf course but I don't think the dragon would react too badly to getting kicked in the face a few times and even if Alice is lying bigger guns are always better. If we could find a sniper rifle or something I would be a happy man.
