Deled staggers, stumbles, then immediately straightens up, angrier than before. Even a kick to the face with such force did little more than annoy him, without the force of an Exalted behind it."...I will destroy you both for this." droplets of dark, essence-like water drift up around him, as a dark blue glow expands from his jade armor. He lifs both arms and assumes a fluid, shifting guard stance, claws raised to cover his face and upper body, and at the same time poised to strike.Pyre Spark lands solidly behind you, seeking cover from the giant monk's rage. "GO GET 'IM, MAKA!" she cheers you, but the crowd, witnessing the buildup of Essence and fighting spirit between you two, pulls back in fear and awe.Suddenly, Deled shifts to attack, taking a single, long, lightning-fast leap towards you and closing distance in a split-second, taking his cloak off and throwing it at you!For a moment, the thick black cloth suspended in midair is all you can see.>he's hiding behind! Punch through it!>it's a decoy! He'll come from the sides!>it's a decoy! He'll attack from above!>it's a decoy! He'll attack from below!>don't get caught up! Step back and stay defensive!>(other?)

>>32368839Yes. I needed that rest. My low posting rate lately has been mostly due to being overworked. Hope i'll be able to get it up a bit now.Also, an advance warning: if things go well for me this summer I might have the chance to do 2 months of internship abroad. Of course, I can't guarantee threads in that case.This summer I wanted to go on with translating a bit more of QuickStart!! as well (since no real translator showed up to take my place, unfortunately), but I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens to me.

Rolled 10>>32368802>don't get caught up! Step back and stay defensive!
Step back AND to the side. He may try for a ranged attack through the cloak, which will hit us if we simply strike forward or step back. Dragonblooded and their elemental stuff, after all.Alright, what attack stuff do we have to respond with?
Rolled 7>>32368802>don't get caught up! Step back and stay defensive!

Rolled 5Also, in order to put into perspective how much of a badass this guy is.We have Phys 3, Dawn 3 and Solar Hero Style. Making a total of 3+3+3=9 dice in a fight.He has, as a best case scenario, Phys 4, Water 4 and Terrestrial Hero Style. Making 4+4+2 dice. And he's doing 2 damage per hit with no boosts. Assume he has a twice per scene from artifacts. And artifact armour damage negation. Not to mention an unknown bonus from Water Dragon Style. Worst case? Phys 5, Water 5, THS. 12 dice per roll. 3 damage per hit, before bonuses. And that's not counting if Water Dragon Style has a bonus that stacks with THS. And artifact weapons and armour. And hearthstones. Best case, we lose by a little. Worst case, we die.

Physical + Dawn + SHS = 5 9 10 7 1 7 4 5 10 = 7 successesYou react to the cloak being thrown to block your sight and engulf you by taking a long step back. The uneven flagstones of the town square make it hard to get your footing right after such a quick movement, but the cloak loses momentum as it flies, and begins to drift down. You raise your fists and look straight up, scanning the sky for a leaping Deled ready to drop down on you...Instead, the cloak suddenly stars moving on its own, leaping towards you. From it, you see the outline of a fist emerging, tipped by three short black steel claws, in a lightning-fast hook that, starting from very low, almost ground level, slams into your lower abdomen.[-1 HP]The pain is sharp and sudden, as you feel the claws rummaging in your innards and your blood spilling along your legs trickling down.The impact almost propels you away, but you shunt the pain away and react by locking your right leg around his neck, slapping his arm out of your stomach, and then nailing him with a good punch in his right temple.[+1 damage bonus used]After your first exchange of blows, there is once again some distance between you.You have stopped losing blood right away, but that doesn't make your wound any less painful. Your legs feel a bit numb, and that's not a good sign.As for him... he has a large bruise on his temple and is losing a bit of blood, but by his smug grin you can tell that he's not seriously hurt. And you hit him with everything you've got!You glance at your gauntlets: the metal is bent where you connected, and, despite that, it felt more like punching water.You stare into the monk's supremely confident eyes, and realize that, on your own, you're probably no match for him.And he knows that.(cont.)

Physical + Dawn + SHS = 10 7 10 8 6 10 7 4 2 = 10 successesDespite your wound and the fact that you're clearly outmatched by your opponent, who is armored and armed with jade artifacts, you stand your ground, and bring your guard back up."Don't count on luck again." He mumbles, touching his wound with two fingers, and wincing slightly from the pain. "Or on mercy." He adds, steeling his gaze, now even more focused from the pain. A deep blue glow extends from him, and makes you feel like you're drowning. All your movements seem so slow and sluggish...You don't even reply, just waiting for his next move.For ten seconds, you're staring into each other's eyes, reading each other's body language, predicting any possible move...Then, he moves to attack, closing with a quick chain of faints that almost catches you completely off-guard. He ducks and waves left, right, up, down...He gets inside your guard, and a fist wreathed in a swirling tornado of black essence slips through your defenses and slams you square in the chest, between your breasts.The blow transmits the energy to your body, and you FEEL your heartbeat screeching to a halt with an almost-mechanical grind, and then your blood suddenly start flowing in reverse, then sideways, then in all directions.[-2 HP]Your sight instantly gets covered by a red filter, and your eyes start watering, causing your vision to go fuzzy. Your head spins, and your stomach spins in the opposite direction. You can't breathe anymore.Coughing and hacking blood and desperately gasping for air, you thrust your hands out to grab Deled's neck, exposed for a moment, and grab him in a choke-hold, lifting him up over your head, struggling against his immense weight and strength.As you squeeze the breath out of him, he knees you in the stomach, causing you to gag and vomit way more blood that you thought you even had in your body.(cont.)
Rolled 1>>32370014>Fight defensively for now. Stall for time.Surely the guard has taken notice of the hug golden banner over the city.
Rolled 2>>32370372Oh christ10 successes and he's still slapping our shit. He must have rolled crazy good or be ridiculously overpowering.

Blood, mixed with water, is everywhere, and makes your grip slippery. He tries to force your hands open.Before he can do that, he suddenly jolts in pain as you hear a whistle and the loud THUNK of an arrow impacting against his back."You... coward..." he hisses, struggling for breath."...I don't want to hear that..." you growl back at him, your voice almost unrecognizable, "...from some backyard bully who used Pyre as a hostage!!"You lift him even higher, and then arc backwards, suplexing his head through the square's thick flagstone pavement. The impact sends shards of rock flying all around and digs a crater about a meter wide.Your hands slip, and you let him go. You let yourself fall to the ground.With a deep, rough gasp for breath, you spit a ball of blood and other internal fluids of dubious color and origin, and try and clear your throat as you struggle back to your feet.He doesn't seem as quick to stand back up. A long arrow is sticking out of his back. It managed to get between his lamellar armor's plates, but just barely. It didn't inflict any serious damage, and in facts falls off on its own. But, knowing Zareen, you can imagine the tip being covered in some kind of poison.>Hit him while he's down.>Let him stand back up.>Pick him up, throw him.>Tell him that you're letting him go back to the Realm if he quits now.>Other?

Rolled 3Stupidly overpowered Dragonblooded.All he had to do was study Martial Arts for years incredibly hard and spend years killing people in combat and he can actually fight better than a solar exalted weeks ago that doesn't focus on combat?DB OP please nerf.That's literally how some of you are sounding
Rolled 10>>32370589We choked him, suplexed him, and he's currently lying in a pool of both ours and his own blood.He's also poisoned, and we've gotten up first. We're winning. Not by much, because people decided to try and 1v1 the guy who's been trained to fight on par with Dawn caste Solars, but we're doing pretty good considering we should be pulp by now.So yeah, break his fucking arms and THEN we can talk about justice.
>>32370619first round: 2 votes out of 15.>overwhelming supportsecond round: 2 votes out of 15.>overwhelming supportNow shut up.
Rolled 2>>32370653Honestly I think its because the entire fight its been portrayed that we've done very little while we got the shit kicked out of us yet we've rolled awesome dice seemingly without result, its understandable why some players would feel the way they do.
Rolled 3>>32370484>Hit him while he's down.If Ten Ox helps us incapacitate him then do it.
>>32370653nah, most are acknowledging he's a badass>>32370681point taken, but this guy was more or less MADE to kill the likes of us before we become titan killing powerhouses
Rolled 3>>32370681So him being smashed into a meter wide crater is "Doing little"?
Rolled 10>>32370702in our perspective and compared to the hits we've taken and dished out, yes
Rolled 2>>32370681That's probably because we're using our fist and he has claws. Blood flowing just sounds worse than blunt trauma to most people, even when both represent -1 HP
Rolled 5>>32370715we really need more health and actual fighting weapons
Rolled 6>>32370552I would like to complain a little about that. Anons usually forget to use their charms like that time with the fae, but in this situation, if you had used the Ten Ox Meditation I do not think anybody at all would have complained since this guy is a murder machine.I am good at roguelikes so I know how to keep track of my abilities in the thick of combat, but others might not.You should have felt free to activate the Ten Ox Meditation yourself in this situation and optimize our ability usage if you think that we are neglecting them.
Rolled 2>>32370484>"You... coward..." he hisses, struggling for breath.He's a DB of the Wyld Hunt.He of all people should realise that ganging up on someone stronger is totally legit
>>32370624Yes. That is my point. Why do you keep claiming we did nothing to him when he is down and we have a chance to take him out for good?I am assuming you are the same anon because my post was directed at him.

Physical + Dawn + SHS = 8 2 5 10 6 4 10 2 8 = 6 successes.[Ten Ox Meditation] [Essence: 1/5]"STAY DOWN!" You walk up to him, in the middle of the crater, with hesitant, unsure steps, your head still spinning, your head still ringing, your sight still red and fuzzy, and pin Deled to the ground with an arm, punching yourself in the chest with the other, trying to restart your heart, which you haven't heard beating since his last strike. "STAY DOWN DAMNIT!""MAKE ME!" He screams back, defiant, definitely trying to do so.You manage to hold him in place, an arm locked behind his back, and finally, with much relief, start hearing the familiar noise of your heartbeat again.You shake the drowsiness from your head, and slam your fist straight into his pinned arm, aiming at breaking it. It feels like punching rubber, but you're not letting him get away. One, two, three hits. Finally, you hear the bone snapping, and him screaming."ARE YOU STAYING DOWN NOW? ARE YOU STAYING DOWN NOW?!"He stays down.>Keep wailing on him.>Pull him up, drag him to his ship at the docks.>Throw him away.>Let him stand up, tell him he has to return to the Realm now.>Other?

Rolled 4>>32370849Okay, now this is a tricky decision. We have a chance to end it right here, but it would provoke the Realm.

>>32370875You're not actually sure what's his legal situation. If he has immunity, if he can be extradited, and so on.Technically, you're not a guard officer or an official representative of Tianna's law enforcement (yet), so ... yeah, you could do that, but you'd be bringing this whole matter into the legal field and you don't know how that could work out.
Rolled 7>>32370849Break the other arm.And a leg.I swear to god, we don't want him awakening from unconciousness and just straight up wrecking us with his free arm.

>>32370849>Tell him to fuck off back to the realm. Ask somebody to take him there, if needed.I don't trust him to not have a last ace hidden and stab Maka while she carries him.Also, combat training, when?
>>32370927I though that was what we planned with Amata. No reason to risk it then. Throw him out and send him back to the realm.
Rolled 4What was the plan? The jail then a trial at court or something?>Pull him up, drag him to jail
Rolled 3>>32370849Can we PLEASE loot his swanky looking claws?I mean, those things hurt. We could use them!
Rolled 4>>32370923oh well... then>>32370849>Pull him up, drag him to his ship at the docks.with some back up from zareen or he'll get dumb ideas
>>32370849>Pull him up, drag him to his ship at the docks.that was the plan
Rolled 6>>32370923yep, thats the plan essentially, from the archives:>"We know that there's one of them loudly asking for your violent elimination. He's the first target. You'll have to find a way to start a fight with him while being in the right. It must be public and geared in such a way that it will make him seem the bad guy, even in the eyes of the Immaculates.">You frown. That will be a lot harder than it sounds, you fear.>"Then, you beat him up, one-on-one, and don't kill him.">"No?">"Killing him would be an excuse for the Realm to rally and intervene. And he knows that. If he's fanatical enough, he might try and get killed against you on purpose, or use any sort of dirty trick to make you look like a violent murderer.">That sounds even harder.>"At which point I can kick him off the island for breaking the public peace." She continues.>"What about the other Immaculates? There's at least two of them.">"You seduce them.">"...I'm sorry?">"You seduce them." She replies, deadpan. "Either winning them over to our plan, getting them to pull out of Tianna, force them in a compromising position - being found in bed with a Solar would be really bad for their public image, of course it doesn't have to work out like that, it's just one idea - or, well, you'll have to improvise a solution."
Rolled 9>>32370849>Pull him up, drag him to his ship at the docks.>take his claws
>>32370849>Pull him up, drag him to his ship at the docks.The moral of this story is 'Dragon-blooded with Immaculate martial arts and artifact weapons/armor are probably better than us at fighting.' Who knew?
Rolled 5>>32370849>Pull him up, drag him to his ship at the docks.Oh and loot him. Armour, claws, dire lance.
Rolled 6>>32370952oh yes, EF, whats the go with looting his gubbinz?>>32370849>Other?drag him to the docks then throw him at his ship
Rolled 10>>32370958>he might try and get killed against you on purposeWe need to be wary of this part. The average monk might not be super excited about killing themselves when they can fight another day but this isn't the average monk. He's fucking crazy and he might go for the martyr play.So break his arms and legs so he can't
Rolled 5>>32370952>>32370968>>32370975They aren't our fighting style. And we're getting God-Kicking boots soon anyway. We should still take them though, I'm certain SOMEONE we know could use them.
Rolled 6>>32370990I'm sure we could punch pretty damn good with his claws, and if anything it deprives him of his weapons and gives him more shit to deal with at homeeven if we don't end up using them, we should take them
Rolled 4>>32370971Yes, but the second moral of the story is 'We never need to fight alone.'
Rolled 10>>32370990Jade is Jade is Jade. We're looting his 'gubbinz'.
Rolled 7>>32371003I prefer straight punching and kicking to Claw fighting, that's why I want gauntlets and boots
>>32371004And the third moral is 'We probably need more Dawn charms so someone doesn't murder the shit out of us next time we get caught alone.'
Rolled 9>>32371013>Jade is Jade is Jade. We're looting his 'gubbinz'.For sure. If nothing else, taking his artifacts for Tianna will be a huge gain for them, and that's not even taking into account how much it will shame Deled to be sent back home alive and stripped of his ancestral artifacts.He'll look like a pathetic man-child.Loot the shit out of his shit.
>>32371013ever thought how this would make us look? that's priority here, so yeah, take the weapons of, but no don't take them with us
Rolled 3>>32371019For you, yes. For me, i'm pushing for HSDD right after this.
Rolled 10>>32371041It's more how it would make him look. Him losing his artifacts will make him look pathetic, and not in the way that invites retribution from his family. They'll actively try to keep what happened secret, which will delay a hunt further, because they don't want to look like pathetic rubes.Take and keep his weapons. Not for us, but for the jade-starved royal family of Tianna.
Rolled 1>>32371042> i'm pushing for HSDD right after this.Me too, we'll need it to Seduce two Immaculate monks to our side
Rolled 4>>32371042>For me, i'm pushing for HSDD right after this.Oh, for sure. I definitely want that before we get more combat charms. It's just, before this, I felt completely done with combat charms. This has made me realize we actually will need more of them - a lot more.
Rolled 4>>32371015and I prefer to loot his shinies and not leave him with the weapons even if we don't use them
Rolled 2Wait!The tabard! Did it survive the fight? I need to know!That and getting yet ANOTHER replacement would be a huge pain.
Rolled 2>>32371066I'm for taking them but not using them. I want to keep our straight punching and kicking style, no claws or anything like that.
Rolled 1>>32371095We made this one of Gossamer, it should be fine.
Rolled 7>>32371096Maybe the Deled are gonna try to buy them back or something. Who knows.
>>32371106omnious 1 is omnious
Rolled 3>>32371096I couldn't agree more. Personally, I want Samiel to get his armor and have the claws reforged into a sword. He's in dire need of some artifact stuff, and this is our opportunity for some jade to do that. Sure, it's Black Jade, but that isn't too big of an issue, it just means it won't be color-coded quite right for him.
Rolled 8>>32370849>Pull him up, drag him to his ship at the docks."If you want to be a big man in a small town , fuck off back to your monastery "
Rolled 3>>32371106Bro, hear me out here.Silken. Armor. Tabard.
Rolled 10>>32371113>DeledPeleps. Deled is his personal name. And yes, us ransoming back the artifacts actually is a viable option. At any rate, we should absolutely not let him leave with them.
Rolled 6>>32371096and I'd rather use them for the bonuses they give instead of our crappy gauntlets
Rolled 5>>32371113Peleps family but Deled is a black sheep to them.They shipped his ass to the immaculate order for training because he was too fucking crazy to keep around the house so I don't imagine they'll be champing at the bit to help him out.
You grab Deled by the collar and heavily lift him up. He's gone limp, but he's still breathing."Paralyzing." Zareen informs, walking up to you, stabbing him through the neck with a second arrow with all the casual ease of a hardened killer.Meanwhile, the crowd is starting to creep back in.Your battlefield is a mess of blood everywhere and shattered flagstones. It was an impressive fight, but the aftermath, you have to admit, must look even more impressive than it actually was."...Help me here." You ask Zareen, as you start to undo the belts and fasteners of his suit of black jade lamellar armor. "Don't want him to get any funny ideas in any case."She assists you, and in a few minutes you get the armor and claws off him. He's slowly coming back to his senses, but not enough to do anything other than struggle weakly against the two of you."...Is he down?" Pyre Spark asks, evidently spooked by the mayhem surrounding you. "...Dear Sol, you look like you've been through a meat grinder.""He is. And I do." You mumble, noticing something odd. On his right side, under the armor, you spot a deep piercing wound, caused by something narrow and sharp like a bodkin arrow, knife or stiletto. You're sure Zareen only loosed one arrow.Whatever caused that wound must have slipped between the plates of his armor with both great strength and fantastic accuracy. Someone helped you from the shadows.Entrusting the suit of armor to Pyre Spark with instructions to bring it to the castle, you and Zareen drag the barely-conscious Immaculate to the docks."...you'll regret not killing me, Anathema." He mumbles."I probably will." You admit. "But, for now, I'm sure you're the one regretting something.""...Only not... coming with a REAL Wyld Hunt."You unceremoniously toss him ten meters into the air and onto the deck of the Realm merchant ship that carried him to Tianna in the first place, under the startled eyes of the crew."You lost something."(cont.)
Rolled 1>>32371127I'll hear you out is you tell me what book Silken armor is in so I can read it without hunting it down.
Rolled 6>>32371130>and I'd rather use them for the bonuses they give instead of our crappy gauntletsThey wouldn't be compatible with Solar Hero Style.
Rolled 5>>32371145Abyssal help? Or something else?
>>32371145>Whatever caused that wound must have slipped between the plates of his armor with both great strength and fantastic accuracy. Someone helped you from the shadows.And we didn't even notice
Rolled 5>>32371177>>32371180It's probably Mikahil's Lunar. Failing that, it's probably Phoenix still trying to be a bro.
Rolled 9>>32371180It could have been Five Tails, She definately would have no love of a Wyld Hunt showing up that might expose and fuck up her husbando mikahil.
Rolled 6>>32371163Ol Mac D codex.- Oadenol's Codex Pg.159
Rolled 5>>32371145>Someone helped you from the shadows.>Sidereal intensifies
Rolled 8>>32371196Or Mikhail himself, the one other time we saw him fight, he used throwing.
Rolled 3>>32371196>>32371198Kitty is still up north at last count.
>>32371198>>32371196Last we know she was gone with Mikhail.
>>32371145I'm taking the wound as Zareens doing and a wink at us to learn archerycarrying a folding balista on our back would make a good addition in our arsenal
Rolled 10>>32371177>>32371180>>32371196Speaking of surprise attacks from the shadows I've been wondering who the fuck shot that arrow at us at the festival way back.Was it Zareen? Was that when she became 'infatuated' with us?
Rolled 10>>32371145>Whatever caused that wound must have slipped between the plates of his armor with both great strength and fantastic accuracy. Someone helped you from the shadows.Hmmmm... interesting Might be Night Caste Solar running around somewhere
Rolled 10>>32371211If it was done with a thrown weapon, it would still be stuck in him. It was a melee stab.>>32371216>>32371220What? Didn't we ask her to tail the Immaculates when she snuck into the palace to introduce herself?>>32371225Well, the arrow was fired by someone without Exalted-level skill. So I seriously doubt it.
>>32371225It wasn't Zareen. She wouldn't shoot such a lazy shot.
Rolled 8>>32371200Cool, but we need more Atifact dot to get it.Social 5 go! We will be the Prettiest Solar Princess.
>>32371196I would guess Pheonix.
Rolled 2>>32371231>What? Didn't we ask her to tail the Immaculates when she snuck into the palace to introduce herself?Yes, but she stopped when we went north with Mikhail, as she had to go pick him up.
Once you're out of their sight, you drop your straight posture and tough looks and go back to limping and dragging yourself, using Zareen for support.Your eyes are still bloodshot and only now your heartbeat is becoming regular again. he might have opened three holed in your stomach, but most of the damage he did is completely internal. That technique he used completely messed up everything inside you.You guess that's what the famous Water Dragon Style does. Another hit and you would have popped like a balloon filled with blood.Mental + Night = 9 5 6 10 = 3 successes"...I think you can come out now." You say, to no one in particular, once you and Zareen are alone in one of the less-busy streets of Tianna.From the shadows, you see Five Tails emerge, with a sly grin. "...You could tell?""I couldn't even see you hitting him, though now I guess it happened at the same time as Zareen's arrow." You reply. "Then I just guessed you were still following me.""You need to be sharper." She warns you, pointing a long knife on a chain at you. "There could have been someone in the crowd trying to do to you the same thing I did to him.""And that's why you're here." You smile."You rely on others too much." Five Tails replies with a frown, helping Zareen sustain you from the opposite side."And yet here you are." You say. "I thought you didn't like me.""I... don't." She averts her eyes, equal parts angry and embarrassed. "But Mikahil needs you.""Just as much as I need him. And you.">Take me to the castle.>Take me to my ships.>Take me to Pyre's temple.>Take me to the Immaculate shrine.>Other?
Rolled 5>>32371318>Take me to Pyre's temple.We need a place to rest and going to the castle while official realm immaculate monks are being hosted there is stupid.Lets lay low and not directly antagonize the immaculates after deported Deled.
Rolled 3>>32371318>Take me to Pyre's templeDelay the move by a day or so, just relax with the cult while we heal.
Rolled 2>>32371318>"You rely on others too much."having allies to rely on is a good thing>Take me to Pyre's temple.
Rolled 1>>32371318>Take me to Pyre's temple.The monks are at the castle right now, and seducing them in our condition would be very hard, if not impossible, which leaves their shrine out, and no need to let our men see us like this again.
Rolled 10>>32371318>Take me to the castle.We need medical attention, and the castle sounds like the place to get it
Rolled 10>>32371318>Take me to Pyre's temple.Zareen, you know medicine right? I need a therapeutic massage. In the chest area.
>>32371318>Take me to the castle.Let's rest.
>>32371318>You guess that's what the famous Water Dragon Style does. Another hit and you would have popped like a balloon filled with blood.http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0336.htmlI'll never get that picture out of my head>which investigood question captcha, HSDD sounds good
Rolled 8>>32371318>Take me to Pyre's temple.We need a nap. We don't want to show up to the palace looking all wrecked.
Rolled 4>>32371368While the castle will undoubtedly have good doctors the other immaculate monks from the Realm are there at this very moment.We need to rest up but we can't just rub in their face that we're an Anathema with the run of the castle. That will get them to really ratchet up the "fuck this island" level.
Rolled 1>>32371318>Take me to Pyre's temple.We need to avoid potential enemies for now. There is a meeting with the monks in the castle, going to the ships would deliver us to Deled again while I don't think we are strong enough to go to the shrine. ....I hope Deled doesn't smash our ships once the paralysis wears off
Rolled 8Exalted newbie here, can we learn the Water Dragon Style? that sounds like something that would work well with out punching.Or is that not something a Solar would do?
>>32371448You definitely can. You'd need a tutor or instructor, though.
Rolled 9>>32371318>Take me to Pyre's temple.Sounds about right.
Rolled 9>>32371448We can learn it, Solars can, theoretically, learn any Martial arts style. However, Water Dragon style is an Immaculate Style, meaning the chance of us finding a teacher is slightly higher than Maka suddenly wearing practical clothes.
>>32371448We can but we don't really need to. It is more about the person than style. We are not a melee fighter, imagine we spend the time and effort we spend on social being spent on fighting instead. That is what that guy did.
Rolled 10>>32371448We can, but we would need a Water Dragon master to teach us. Without finding a tutor for specific styles, the only style that we can learn is Solar Hero Style, which is the style we've already been using. It would probably be better for us to just keep on with that.Remember, we only have one Solar Hero Style charm so far.
Rolled 6>>32371448>with out punching.derp, meant with OUR punching
Rolled 3>>32371318Just out of curiosity, why would we bring Maka to the immaculate shrine? The only reason I can think would be to troll the immaculate monks
Rolled 6>>32371448>>32371477>>32371478A more practical style for us is Unconquered Arms Style, it's a martial arts style that doubles as a prayer to the Unconquered Sun.That and continuing to develop Solar Hero Style
>>32371483looking forward to Sledgehammer Fist Punch, Hammer on Iron Technique and Crashing Wave Throw
Rolled 9>>32371483what about Dancing Swallow, could he teach us anything badass?
Rolled 3>>32371492One option would be to let them know we hold them blameless for the misdeeds of an individual, and that we seek peace and understanding rather than retribution for his actions?
Rolled 1>>32371492I imagine if we wanted to get staight on seducing the other monks without them having a chance to hear about Deled
Rolled 5>>32371498He's not around right now.
Rolled 5>>32371498Well, according to him, he knows Five Dragon Style, which is a Terrestrial Martial Art. We're probably better off just learning more Solar Hero Style, unless Exaltedfag offers us some version of Swallowing the Lotus Root that gives us a 50% discount on TMAs.THAT SAID, learning Five Dragon Style from him could be crazy-good if we want to teach it to Enlightened followers someday.
Rolled 9>>32371501uhh, we're going to seduce the crap out of them soon as part of our plan with Amata, I'm pretty sure heading there now though would be stupid after the fight we just had
Rolled 2>>32371498Swallow bounced after we got him to admit he was an immaculate spy.He's probably still on the island somewhere but he's not available to us.
Rolled 4>>32371518oh I know, and I'm hoping his dreams won't stop and he comes back, he would be a awesome adviser for us, keep our head on straight
Rolled 3>>32371516No, we were going to seduce the immaculates who came with Deled, since they're less cuckoo. They're at the castle.The local Immaculates in the local temple are not part of the seduction plan.
Rolled 5>>32371509If we were to teach our followers something, I'd want it to be Golden Janissary, though Five Dragons would also be good.
Rolled 5>>32371538ah my mistake, I thought they would be at their temple
Rolled 10>>32371544>I'd want it to be Golden JanissaryUntil we meet a Golden Janissary, there's no point holding out for that style. That's the downside to martial arts. You need a tutor.
Rolled 9>>32371538This is Maka we're talking about. EVERYBODY is part of the seduction plan
say, how can we use martial arts against lintha and abyssal air ships?
Rolled 1>>32371544Golden Janissary would be pretty useless against the realm or the pirates, tough
Rolled 10>>32371565>EVERYBODY is part of the seduction planYes, but some people need to be seduced first.
Rolled 10>>32371577we kick them in half
>>32371318>Take me to Pyre's temple.All the other options are traps
Rolled 9>>32371579Be useful against Abyssals and their undead minions though. It also seems more "Solar" to me than Five Dragons Style
Rolled 2>>32371585>Yes, but some people need to be seduced first.True. One step at at time, I guess.
Rolled 1>>32371577We use Night mobility charms to jump to them, then punch them apart.
>>32371577You punch them until they sink.
Rolled 5>>32371602Don't worry, one day all of Creation will love us. And, hopefully, make love TO us
Rolled 10>>32371595Who says we can't have both, get greedy anon.
You ask your friends to drag you back to Pyre's temple. Aparently the little priestess has already informed everyone in the cult that the journey to Pearl has been delayed."...Maka!" She welcomes you back, and helps Five and Zareen to lay you down delicately on her bed. "...Your eyes are all full of blood.""...Whatever Deled did, it made all of my blood want to get outside of me rather than inside." You mumble weakly as she removes your tabard."...There's not even a bruise where he hit you. The impact of the blow must have traveled throughout your entire body." is Zareen's clinical analysis. "While you were pinning him down, I noticed you hitting yourself in the chest. Was that a reflex of some kind?""I was trying to restart my heart." You explain."You're kidding." Is Pyre's reply."Wish I was. I really thought I was going to die." You sigh. "It stopped for almost five, ten seconds.""...For now, you need to rest, eat a lot, drink a lot, and take it easy." Zareen explains."...I can't wait more than half a day.""You hope to be healed by then?" She snarks."I KNOW I won't be healed by then. But I need to be presentable. I need to face the other Immaculates.""They'll turn you to paste.""...I'm hoping to deal with them without a fight. Which is why I need to be presentable.""That's way too dangerous." She protests.>I guess I'll rest and recover for a full day, then decide what to do. I can't do anything like this.>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.>I'm not going to rest at all, sorry. I need to leave right away. Help me be presentable. You have ten minutes.>Other?
Rolled 1>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.at how much health and essence are we again?
Rolled 10>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.We really do need some rest. But we can't afford to wait too long.
Rolled 5>>32371617Truly a motivation worthy of Maka's level of lust.>>32371626We can, and I do want both, but if I had to chose only one Golden Janissary fits better for a follower of a solar than Five Dragons (unless that follower is a Dragon-Blood).>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.
Rolled 8>>32371634>I guess I'll rest and recover for a full day, then decide what to do. I can't do anything like this.We should send Zareen as a messenger to Amata to have her try to keep the immaculates in the castle for the full day. That way they won't go back to their ship and find Deled with a broken arm and all of his army and weapons gone before we're done with them.
>>32371634>>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.
Rolled 3>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.HSDD and MRP can do the rest
Rolled 7>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.Timetables are the bane of us isn't it?
Rolled 2>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.Just because we almost took a dirt nap doesn't mean we mustn't try to be as fabulous as we can
Rolled 8>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good."We have to make sure that the other monks listen to us. Otherwise this Deled will come back. Except a leading a full Wyld hunt!"
>>32371644We have 2HP and 1 Ess
Rolled 6>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.Also, I'd like to buy HSDD now. I know it's not technically time for it, but I think we need it
Rolled 5>>323716692/5 isn't that bad, should mean only minor wound penalty
Rolled 7>>32371663I think we don't technically have husband seducing demon dance yet
Rolled 9>>32371634>>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.
>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.Also +1 for buying HSDD and for sending Zareen to have Amata stall the other Immaculates
>>32371686If there's enough of a consensus right now you can get it. Let's hold a mid-thread vote on it.Other than your other traits, your available charms are:-Husband-Seducing Demon Dance (Permanent. When being intimate or seductive, your social attacks can build or remove an extra +3 points of intimacy)-Respect-Commanding Attitude (1 Ess, Scene. Interrupts everyone and anything going on, in order to deliver a statement that will be heard)-Terrifying Glorious Presence (upgrades Majestic Radiant Presence: on top of its effect, all social attacks have 1 automatic success)-Phantom-Conjuring Performance (Perm. can fashion phantasmagorical images and sounds from your own Anima)
Rolled 6>>32371634 this was me >>32371654add a vote for HSDD, if buying it at this juncture is possible
Rolled 4>>32371705Eyo son gimme dat HSDDWe can even use it while low on essence!
Rolled 3>>32371705YES! Get HSDD.
Rolled 6>>32371705Get HSDD
Rolled 1>>32371705>Husband-Seducing Demon Dance (Permanent. When being intimate or seductive, your social attacks can build or remove an extra +3 points of intimacy)
Rolled 3>>32371705Husband Seducing Demon Dance absolutely.
>>32371705Get HSDD. It will make our seduction much more effective, it will help with Immaculates and for pretty much all we do in the future.
>>32371705Recasting this vote>>32371703
>>32371634>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.We kinda need to get it done fast.
Rolled 7>>32371705>Husband-Seducing Demon Dance (Permanent. When being intimate or seductive, your social attacks can build or remove an extra +3 points of intimacy)We REALLY want that right now.
Rolled 6>>32371705I'm conflicted.HSDD is obviously good for what we're planning to do with the monks, but TGP has more of a general application
Rolled 2>>32371634>>I'll get the minimum rest necessary, so focus on hiding my wounds and make me look good.
Rolled 1>>32371748>>32371705Eh, fuck it. I vote for HSDD
Rolled 6>>32371705question, what is a point of intimacy?
Rolled 8>>32371705>-Terrifying Glorious Presence (upgrades Majestic Radiant Presence: on top of its effect, all social attacks have 1 automatic success)this please
Rolled 6>>32371808An Intimacy is something someone gives a shit about. They have intimacies towards their families, their enemies - it's basically a measure of someone's social connection to something.
Rolled 8>>32371802>Eh, fuck it.That's the plan>>32371808It's basically social damage. An itimacy is how you feel about someone, someplace, or something, and the higher the level, the stronger that feeling is
Rolled 4Could we get examples on how strong people's intimacies towards us are?
Rolled 3>>32371821>>32371828right, so essentially social HP? that makes sense
Rolled 6>>32371818>>32371716Why do you two want TGP? HSDD almost doubles our social damage when it comes to romance/seduction/sex permanently. TGP only adds one success to our rolls. I mean, TGP is good, and we should get it sooner or later, but isn't HSDD more urgent?
Rolled 10>>32371808So with HSDD, we can erode the monk's intimacy towards the realm much easer.
Rolled 4>>32371840Pretty much. And with HSDD, we should be able to one-shot most intimacies with a lapdance.
Rolled 8>>32371808An intimacy in exalted is basically a short description of what a character cares about. Attacking of reinforcing an intimacy makes it stronger or weaker.Our goal here is to change the monks intimacy of "Resist the anathema wherever they be found" to "Maka is really fucking hot"
Rolled 8>>32371851twice as fast, yes
Rolled 9>>32371829>>32371840It's not just a high intimacy means they like us more.Tia probable has a 5 dot intimacy of love toward us.Feur-de-lis (that midnight caste abyssal we fought in the 2nd thread and made barons 1st mate a few threads ago) probably has a 1 dot intimacy of hate for us for foiling her plan top conquer Tianna.
Rolled 3>>32371876I thoght they ranged from 1 to 10?
Rolled 4>>32371876By the way, is that Abyssal's name Feurdelis or Fleurdelis. EF has used both spellings.>>32371898Pretty sure they cap at 5. Actually they cap at either Conviction or Compassion (I forget which), but those stats aren't represented in this system.
Rolled 3>>32371916In normal Exalted, yes, but I think EF said they go to 10 here.
Rolled 6>>32371916for the sake of quantifying things I have no problem of using good ol' virtue systemmight be slightly confusing for people who are not familiar with itbtw, still waiting for Maka to experience her first breakdown
[HSDD it is]Lying on that comfy bed, you quickly slip into unconsciousness, not even realizing the moment you fall asleep.Weird, unsettling dreams and nightmares plague your rest. Nothing sticks into your memory.Suddenly, you jolt awake, convinced you just dozed off tor a minute or so.It's night outside, with the sharp moonlight greeting you from the window.There isn't a part of your body that isn't hurting. You're covered in a dull pain that makes you feel like your sense of touch has fallen asleep as well, all over your body.You get out of under the blankets and walk up to the closest mirror, carefully trying to not wake up Pyre Spark, who fell asleep at your side. Zareen seems to not be here anymore, and even Five is nowhere to be seen.You have to admit that Zareen and the others did a good job. The slashing wounds on your abdomen and chest are almost invisible, although they're still there and hurting like mad.Alright. You're looking good. You have no idea if you're looking good enough to make someone betray his country, his religion and everything he believes in, though.Damnit, now you're feeling like the bad guy here.But still, if you can end this crisis with some (hopefully good) sex, it's a win/win for everyone. Right?...Now you're even a bit curious to see if you can manage to get into an Immaculate's pants. That'd be something to boast about."Yeah, I'll admit it." Five slips out of the shadows like usual, startling you a bit in the process. "Even I'm a bit tempted right now.""Good to know." You smile nervously."Need some backup?" She asks. "From the shadows, I mean. I'm not really into selling my body like you do." She adds then, disdainful.>Yes, come with me, but stay concealed>Yes, come with me. Don't bother hiding>Go fetch Zareen, then come and help in case things go wrong>No, I can handle this. Stay here with Pyre>Other(also feel free to write-in a response to Five's remark if you feel like Maka would reply to it)
>>32371928No, in normal Exalted intricacies don't have ratings at all.
Rolled 3>>32371959>Yes, come with me, but stay concealedFrown but don't say anything, it would take more time than we have to change her opinion of us, and it's not COMPLETELY inaccurate regardless.
Rolled 9>>32371959>Yes, come with me, but stay concealed"From the shadows is perfect, I'm at my best at night."
>>32371959>>Yes, come with me, but stay concealedI don't think we need to respond to her remark.
Rolled 6>>32371959>Yes, come with me, but stay concealed
Rolled 8>>32371959>Yes, come with me, but stay concealedMaybe you'll pick up some tricks for yourself tonight.
Rolled 9>>32371959>>Yes, come with me, but stay concealedwe should leave a note on our pillow for Pyre to read telling her we had to go work and not to worry.
Rolled 10>>32371959>Go fetch Zareen, then come and help in case things go wrongand what >>32371981 said, we are using sex to get what we want, even if it's more complicated than she makes it out to bebut say this >>32372010 out loud
Rolled 4>>32371959>Yes, come with me, but stay concealed"If you want to stay hidden, I have no objection. I understand completely if you would just prefer to... watch."
Rolled 10>>32371959>Yes, come with me, but stay concealedwe're not really selling, we're seducing.
>>32372010This is good i guess. We don't need to argue the ethics with her.
Rolled 8>>32371959>Yes, come with me, but stay concealed>>32372010>Maybe you'll pick up some tricks for yourself tonight.And say this
Rolled 4>>32372042"Seducing" means the only thing we hope to get out of it is sex. We have ulterior motives, just not money in this case.
Rolled 2>>32371959>"Even I'm a bit tempted right now."only a bit? I'll have to work on that, then.
Rolled 8If Swallow were here...
Rolled 9>>32372060we try to make them like us.If you bake someone cupcakes to show you want to be friends that doesn't mean you're buying their friendship.
Rolled 9>>32368942Good to see you back EF, by the way, good luck on that internship when it comes too
Rolled 10>>32372062Just wait till Social 5. We're gonna fuck everyone.
Rolled 6>>32371959"Watch and learn, then. I'm sure Mikahil will like it."
Rolled 7And we just hit autosage. Quite early today. Guess everyone was excited about the fight.Maybe they'll be a second thread.
Rolled 9>>32372111Aww, why?Can't we tease her about her possible crush on Mikahil?
Rolled 7>>32372115I'm not that surprised, on top of the fight EF had been resting for a while I actually ended up missing the whole fight, but we won, good job anons
>>32372117We don't know their relation. Depending on it, she can take serious offense in it.
Rolled 3>>32372143From what I've heard i bet it's something like she likes him, but he doesn't feel the same wayWe did use her intimacy for him to get her to help us back when we first spoke on the roof
Rolled 8>>32372188Could this be another case for matchmaker Maka?
>>32371959Side note: but did we steal his spear? I can't really tell what happened to it.
Rolled 5>>32372206I don't think he had it on him, just his claws and armor
Rolled 7>>32372206Heh, took his spear.Now Maka has a big spear and he has none.Maka should show people her big, new spear.
Rolled 3>>32372206Probably, we basically stripped him naked of any artifacts he might have been carrying.
Rolled 10>>32372201At the very least I want to try
Rolled 5>>3237220150 % success rate so far, our butler and maid aren't really together yet.
"If you want to stay hidden, I have no objection. I understand completely if you would just prefer to... watch." You reply, with a sly grin and a knowing wink.She turns away from you.For all her serious, cool demeanor, you have to admit she's pretty cute when caught off guard. Mikahil's a lucky fellow.You put back your tabard. It's too risky to go get other clothes from the castle, and you're sure nothing Pyre has is anywhere near your size.Then, you leave. You feel pretty predatorish, stalking through the night like this, barely dressed, moving with a purpose...You make your way for the Immaculate temple, which you reach easily: The streets are empty, and no one notices you.The building itself is a tall shrine with a pointy roof, built with white marble bricks, adorned with bas-reliefs of dragons crawling all around the walls. A lot fancier than Pyre's shack.>Knock. Act casual.>Break the door down.>Ask Five Tails to unlock the door for you.>Other?(indicentally, you recovered 2 Essence)

Rolled 10>>32372269I'll second turning on MRP
Rolled 4I hope we didn't need to roll for this, because otherwise we're screwed, and not in a good way
Rolled 4>>32372356We're knocking on a door, it's probably next post that we need to roll for. Probably
Rolled 7>>32372387>we fail at knocking on the door and just stand there for a while before giving up and going home
[Majestic Radiant Presence] [Essence: 2/5]You knock.You feel some movement inside. Someone grumbling incomprehensibly, then walking barefoot.Then the door opens, and you're left face to face with a young man with a sharp face and even sharper eyes. A few scars mar his otherwise beautiful face, including a large one over his right eye, all signs of old blows from very sharp blades.He is only wearing a pair of large hakama-style pants and a light, open shirt over his shoulders, revealing a similar criss-cross of scars over his wiry yet athletic upper body. He was clearly sleeping."...yes?""Hello."In his drowsy state, it takes him about two seconds to realize what's going on, two more seconds for his brain to fully understand it, and then two more to act on it.That's way too slow.>Put your foot in the door to keep him from closing it, but stay outside.>Slip inside.>Smile and wait for his reaction.>Start a casual conversation.>Lean in and kiss him.>Grab him, pull him outside.>Say (something).>Remove your tabard.>Punch him.>Other?

Social + Zenith + MRP = 9 6 6 6 2 3 4 1 2 6 3 = 1 successYou slip in, taking advantage of his moment of confusion, right before he slams the door.He turns to you, eyes wide with surprise.You smile.He grabs you by the tabard and flings you out of the window.You smash through the glass and land painfully on the street's flagstone pavement.Then, you hear him quietly screaming to himself in a panic, running around the temple, and the clanging noise of someone donning a suit of armor faster than it would be humanly possible.From the shadows, Five Tails is shaking her head."...alright." You sigh. "Plan B.">Plan B?
Rolled 3>>32372543>>32372545>>32372551now the dice gods are just trolling us

Rolled 3>>32372559Knock again, remain calm. Act as if everything was completely normal
Rolled 9>>32372559I have no fucking idea outside of kick the door in and walk back in there like we own the place
Rolled 9>>32372559Climb back up, knock on the door again. Remain calm. Tell him we want to talk about organizing a funeral for that old man that got pasted earlier today.
Rolled 4>>32372559Chase him down, we need to Calm him down before everything goes even more to hell>>32372567>WE ALWAYS DO SHIT AT SOCIAL ACTIONSWhat quest have you been playing.
Rolled 1>>32372559Hands upTell them were just here to talk
Rolled 2>>32372559>Plan B?Take off Tabard, lie in the street and start bawling like a baby when the monks show up Maka has no shame
Rolled 3>>32372559>quietly screaming to himself in a panic, running around the temple,aww, how cute>knock again and tell them we just want to talk.>Also, throwing us through the window was pretty rude
Rolled 7>>32372587This.Start with business, *then* segue into pleasure.
Rolled 4>>32372559Knock again and act like nothing is wrong like >>32372576said.
Rolled 7>>32372587This. Think about it. Straight seducing makes us seem like some sort of succubus. Business first makes us seem like a nice saintly person.
Rolled 10>>32372559When whoever is coming out to confront us does, we need to remain calm and tell them we just want to talk, not fight.
Rolled 2>>32372559KnockTell them we're here to try and prevent further clashes between the Immaculates and our cult on this island like what happened earlier.Gives us a legitimate reason to talk to them
Rolled 8>>32372559I'll second >>32372587
>>32372598>>32372647Yeah this, we're here to talkMention we don't hold them against what Deled did today
Rolled 10>>32372653I think this is a better reason than a funeral.
Rolled 6>>32372559Lean in through the broken window and tell him that we're only here to talkPout a bit.
Rolled 2>>32372683They didn't even necessarily kill one of our own personal cult members for all we know deled just murdered a worshipper of Sol Invictus in the street for nothing.How are they going to make it up to the KING OF HEAVEN.
Rolled 9>>32372559>>32372653This +1
Rolled 5>>32372693Changing vote from knocking to leaning in through the window while pouting

Rolled 7>>32372559>Plan B?>>32372653Knock and have a civilized discussion.
Rolled 3>>32372653This.Preventing further violence should be something they can get behind
Rolled 8>>32372559>>32372653I'm gonna go with this over the funeral option, as it gives us a better in for the seduction
>>32372653I'd prefer something like this than talking to them about the funeral, we want them to know we don't have anything against them for what Deled did
>Plan B is try Plan A again
>>32372785Do you normally give up on your plans when you are thrown out of a window anon? You must be weak.
Rolled 1>>32372785We don't want to fight them, do you have any other ideas?
Rolled 6>>32372785>Plan B is try Plan A againIf at first you don't succeed...

>>32372924Sure, it's not an obvious charm and we won't glow if we use it
Rolled 10>>32372924yeah, it's a bad idea.We don't want them to freak out more
Social + Zenith + MRP = 3 10 3 9 9 4 1 2 3 7 4 = 5 successesYou sigh, stand up, brush dust and glass shards off you, and look inside from the window.You see the immaculate, already in full kit, with white jade armor and a long but slender curved daiklave, staring back at you with burning hatred, already poised to strike.You pout."GO AWAY." He snarls."I want to talk a bit.""NO.""Don't you think the situation is a bit too tense here? I'd like to at least find a way we can exist together without this kind of fights and hostilities and bullying.""ANATHEMA.""I'm just concerned." You continue. "One of your guys slammed an old man through five inches of rock earlier today, and threatened to kill a lot more people. Took a little girl hostage. Things like that. Can't we find a way to-""He did the right thing." He interrupts you. "You're a monster. A blight upon Creation. I don't know how you managed to corrupt even queen Amata, but we're here to save her from you.""What about those people who were bullied and threatened by your followers for being worshipers of the Unconquered Sun?""Misguided sous that need to be directed back to a more wholesome faith. To learn who really deserves their worship.""Right. You mean the guy slamming old men around?""...""So you don't want to kill them all as well?""...Peleps Deled is... overzealous.

Rolled 3>>32372944>Won't you let me in? It's silly to talk like this from across a window. I won't try anything.

They don't need to see our caste mark to know we're a solar and the fact that we're glowing means we're doing some solar bullshittery to them as far as they would be concerned.

Rolled 5>>32373003Not yet, but we would've been if we'd used TttH
>>32372944Did he just imply the UCS isn't worthy of worship? Its ironic that he blames us for stealing the power of the sun while he's trying to turn sun worshipers away from the sun, which literally does steal his power.
>>32373009We wouldn't have, we would only glow if we used them at the same time, we can use it without flaring right nowI'm voting for TttH by the way
Rolled 7>>32372944>Why not let the people pick their faith freely? The cult of the Sun was already here long before I arrived. You can't blame it on me.
Rolled 2>>32373003We aren't glowing from the anima banner or our caste mark true, but majestic radiant presence is practically anima banner lite in terms of obviousness.
Rolled 1>>32373021That's wrong, every charm we use in a scene counts against the total. We can only use 1 without flaring our Anima.
>>32373036EF can we get confirmation om who's right here, because I'm positive he's wrong
Rolled 4>>32373034It doesn't say that on the char sheet, please don't assume stuff just because it works that way in Exalted
Rolled 1>>32373050Fair enough, It's up to EF anyway so we'll see what happens.
Rolled 5>>32373022don't you ever tell that a crazed zealot bent on destroying you and and everyone like youand not on that guy as well*rolling for whatever action is choosen*
>>32373034No it's not, MRP has no obvious effect, it's an incredibly subtle charm, it's hard to guess it's use too if you can't see our dice, like how do you know when someone goes from supernaturally good at talking to godly

You can't blame it on me.>What do I need to do to persuade you that I'm no monster?>>32373036>>32373047If you two want to check, I think he first mentioned it around the time of Dancing Smoke's festival. I don't remember the exact thread though.
>>32373036This guy is right. If you use another charm you start lighting your castemark.
Rolled 1>>32372944>Other: He murdered an old man in cold blood. You can explain to me how the Immaculate philosophy is not represented by the actions of one zealot. Can you say that to those the man has left behind? To the people who watched in terror as his life was snuffed out?>Why not let the people pick their faith freely? The cult of the Sun was already here long before I arrived. You can't blame it on me.
Rolled 2>>32373125Okay then my bad, no Talking to the Heart
Rolled 3>>32372944>>32373125yeah, let's excuse nonetheless, but without TttH>>32373134> You can explain to me how the Immaculate philosophy is not represented by the actions of one zealot. >Won't you let me in? It's silly to talk like this from across a window. I won't try anything.
Social + Zenith + MRP = 5 10 8 6 5 8 3 3 6 3 6 = 4 successes"...Won't you let me in?" You ask."OF COURSE not." He replies. "Now leave! You're lucky I'm not in the mood to start a fight tonight!""But talking through a window like this is silly.""I'm not letting you in. Now get lost." He snarls back."...Fine, I'll keep taking from here."He turns around and stomps out of the room, slamming a door behind him."Why won't you let them have the religion they want?"No reply."I wasn't the one who started the cult anyway. These people want to worship the Unconquered Sun. He's a god like any other - actually, he's arguably above all other gods! Why shouldn't he be worshiped?"No reply."Man, you're a tough customer." You sigh. "Maybe I can climb in from the window now?"The door slams open, with the armored immaculate behind it holding a bow, with arrow notched, pointed at your head."I guess that's a no. Are you going to at least listen to me?""You're just trying to brainwash me.""I want to have a dialogue. We're essentially leaders in charge of two religions who are having a conflict, and I want to solve it and restore peace.""There can only be peace with your death."You roll your eyes. "You're not as violent as you act. I know you tried to keep that madman reined in, and you're acting defensively rather than attacking me like he would have done by now. You're a good person.""That's why I have a duty to protect Creation from you."Man, he IS a tough customer. You're running out of ammo.>Rebuttal?
Rolled 8>>32373186How exactly am I threatening Creation, then?I defeated the Raksha and am about to go to war with the lintha.
Rolled 10>>32373186We want to protect Creation too and Tianna, we love this city and we love Amata, we don't want anything to happen to any of them, but if tensions continue between our cults it could start riots or worse
Rolled 6>>32373186"What makes you so sure I'm the threat to Creation? I've been going after the Fae, and deathknights, and Lintha. What if your faith is wrong about what I am?"
Rolled 10>>32373186I repelled the Abyssals when they attacked this city. I struck a massive blow against the nearby Wyld. And soon I'm going to be sailing against the Lintha.You ask me not to judge you by the actions of Deled Peleps, but would judge me by the actions of my fellow Solars?
Rolled 1>>32373186Like Deled was protecting creation from it's impeding destruction through old men?
Rolled 2>>32373186I'll second >>32373207 & >>32373236
Rolled 7>>32373244Electronic old men running the world.
Rolled 1>>32373186>Rebuttal?" There are things in creation far more dangerous than me. Malignant things. Vile things. Things that would set creation ablaze, just to watch it burn.I am not your enemy."
Rolled 8>>32373186>>32373236But dropping the royal WE
Rolled 4>>32373134Gonna try this again.>Other: A man of your faith murdered an old man in cold blood. You can explain to me how the Immaculate philosophy is not represented by the actions of one zealot. Can you say that to those the man has left behind? To the people who watched in terror as his life was snuffed out?If you kill me now, do you really believe that would lead to peace? Can you imagine the slaughter that would follow? How many innocents, regardless of their faith, would suffer? All because you refused a peaceful path?I was in your place hours ago, and I chose to spare my enemy, because I do not want that war. And you do not want that war. Talk with me. Please.
Rolled 9>>32373186I'll second >>32373243
Rolled 8>>32373186"Can you honestly claim i am not defending the creation? Considering any and all my actions..."
Rolled 4>>32373186Protecting Creation? I'm doing that too, maybe we can compare notes. How many Wyld Zones have you cleared and how many Death Knight invasions did you prevent yet?I'm also about to attack the lintha, you can join if you want
Rolled 9>>32373186"We have many common enemies. The Lintha, the Raksha, and the Abyssals. I wish to protect creation just as much as you. I don't judge the entire faith on one overzealous monk, and I implore you to judge me not by the actions of other solars, but by my own actions. I am not your enemy."
>>32373186Explain that we are going after the lintha, and that well have to fight the abyssals probably in the near future. We aren't looking for an alliance or forgiveness, we just want to be able to fight the enemies if creation and tianna without worry of being murdered in the night, or stabbed in the back, or have the ucs cult wiped out while were off fighting.
Rolled 5>>32373186"There are many enemies that threaten creation. Ranging from the Undead, Fae and the Demonic. If we keep fighting each-other instead of them, then only they will benefit from it. We need to work out how to live together before they make us stop living.
>>32373186>>32373243might be the only chance to say that quote:"What is better to be born good or to overcome your evil nature with great effort?"
Rolled 9>>32373308but we don't have an evil nature, just a slutty one.
Rolled 8>>32373186Adding my vote to >>32373243 and >>32373288
Rolled 8>>32373318Unfortunately, it looks like we blew our chance to sex this guy up, at least in this encounter. Maybe next time.
Rolled 2>>32373357Nah, just wait for him to put the bow away, let us in and talk to us like a normal person.We start seducing once we're sure he's not about to kill us.
Rolled 9>>32373357I'm honestly not seeing how its possible to carry out our plan after that magnificent fuckup of 1 success ruining everything we've setup and wasting the purchase of HSDD...fuck you dice
Rolled 6>>32373357Seduction is an ongoing process, get him to tolerate us first and then we move on getting him realize we're hot as fuck
Rolled 2>>32373370This is what you get for beelining towards HSDD in hopes of getting the dick.
Rolled 3>>32373383I didn't anon, I voted for TGP...
Rolled 3>Step one:make him not fear for his live>Step two:make him see us as a person and not a succubus >Step three:Seduce him
Rolled 1>>32373393Why the fuck didn't it greentext the >Step one?
>>32373393three isn't a step, if we get the first two that will happen automatically
Rolled 7>>32373367>>32373370>>32373376>>32373393By "maybe next time" I meant next time we met this guy, not that we should give up on seducing him.I like your optimism though. We'll get his dick yet!
Rolled 1We were never really going to seduce him in one shot anyway, this guy is an Immaculate monk, he probably has something like a max intimacy of hate for Anathema, we have to wear that down first before we even start seducing him
Rolled 10>>32373186>>32373244Seconding this, also mention how he himself said Deled's faith was pure so him murdering that old guy for the crime of emigration was obviously a righteous act in defense of all of creation.Somehow
Rolled 6>>32373440He seems pretty new, he doesn't seem to really hate us.maybe he's a virgin?
Rolled 1So when should we use HSDD? and is it scenelong?
Rolled 6>>32373472It's permanent, we don't need to activate it
Rolled 7>>32373472EF reworked HSDD, it's permanent. So I guess yes it is scenelong.
Rolled 6>>32373472It's a permanent, it's always active as long as we're being sexy or just intimate
Rolled 7>>32373472HSDD is a permanent, which means it's always on
Rolled 9>>32373472It's permanent, we don't need to activate it, we just need to get our slut on.
Social + Zenith + MRP = 8 10 6 10 1 2 7 1 8 4 9 = 8 successes"How can you say that I'm not protecting Creation as well?" You reply.He doesn't move, and his bow, still pointed at your head, doesn't waver."I fought the Abyssals. I fought the Raksha. I'm sure Amata told you that I'm also preparing a strike against the Lintha. Am I not protecting Creation?""You're just furthering your aims of conquest. Murdering a criminal in order to better rob him isn't enough to make someone a just man.""What I'm doing, I'm doing for the good of Creation." You protest. It's like arguing with a brick wall. "Aren't we fighting the same fight? Don't we have the same enemies? Don't we live in the same Creation?"He lowers his bow. Slowly."...Am I getting through to you?""No." He replies, brutally. "But you must be very, very good at lying at yourself.""Why?""You sound really convinced of what you're saying."You slam your head on the wall repeatedly. "Sol damn it you're stubborn! I'm telling you! I'm not a monster. I'm an Exalted. I'm a Chosen, like you are, only of a different nature! I'm still human! I'm still myself. I'm not a puppet of some sort of demonic force or whatever you crazy people believe."He opens his mouth."Then next thing you're going to say is: That's exactly what a demon puppet would say.""That's exactly what a demon puppet would say."He stares at you in amazement and confusion. You smile."You're not leaving me anything to work with. I just want you to see me as a fellow Exalted, and not as whatever crazy and wildly inaccurate idea of me you have. Give me a chance. Get to know me. Then, I promise I won't complain if you decide to still hate me after all."He sighs. "Is this how you managed to win Amata's trust, Anathema?""Actually, I knew her from before Exalting."(cont.)
Rolled 2>-Husband-Seducing Demon Dance (Permanent. When being intimate or seductive, your social attacks can build or remove an extra +3 points of intimacy)Hmmm... I wonder Does having a one on one conversation count as being intimate?
Rolled 7I feel like we're slowly getting through to him. Now we just need to seduce him to seal the deal

Rolled 1>>32373517It does if the goal of that conversation is to get them into your bed. This is Maka's goal in every converstion
Rolled 10>>32373520one thing at a time anon, we're about to tell him about ourselves. Then we say it's silly to tell someone about yourself and not learn anything about them so mr monk here tells us about HIS life.But it was a trap, he has fallen for the Maka and we'll be in his pants in a day or 7.
He frowns. "...She tried to persuade me that you are still yourself. Still human.""You were taught to fear me before ever meeting me, or meeting anyone who ever met me." You climb through the window. "...Now, you get to actually meet me in person. Isn't this a choice to see if your hate is justified?""I don't hate you." He frowns. "I pity you. You're a victim of a horrible curse that turned you into a monster.""Exaltation isn't a curse. You should know that." You reply."Our exaltations are different.""But they're still exaltations.

Rolled 6>>32373537>Talk about yourself>Talk about himSpecifically, talk about Exalting. That seems like a good place to start
Rolled 9>>32373537>Talk about yourselfstep two: make him see us as a person>Talk about himstep three: seduce him
Rolled 3these rolls...
Rolled 3>>32373537>Talk about yourselfSpecifically, tell him about how we dealt with becoming exalted, leaving stuff that might get him on the defensive.ASK about how he felt when he was exalted. See if we can draw parallels between us.
Rolled 5>>32373580and there goes our progress
>>32373537>Talk about the Cult of the Sun>Talk about AmataExplain specifically that we're trying to steer the cult away from seeing us as anything more than a prophet of the Unconquered Sun, because that's what we are.As for Amata, he seems to be on good terms with her, and defending other people who are defending you is almost always easier than trying to defend yourself.
Information that may be useful to y'all.The Immaculate faith is unique among the organized religions of Creation in that it takes a form other than a god bullying the shit out of his people. (No great offense to Maka, but from the Immaculate perspective her cult's indistinguishable from thousands of others: "nice city you got here, hate to think what would happen to if you stopped worshipping us") Courtesy of the people who, ahem, encouraged its formation, it also has the unique attribute of being factually correct regarding the workings of Creation, with a few minor exceptions in the form of claiming the Dragon-Blooded have the Mandate of Heaven and that the Anathema are soulless monsters who must be put to death for the good of Creation.The core duty of the Immaculate Monks is to preserve a theosocial order where gods serve men- not the other way around, because that way lies corruption and madness.

>>32371509I've said it before: We need to learn First Pulse Style. It suits Maka perfectly. Especially the Capstone charm.That said, coupling Golden Jannisary with Castigating Solar Judgement is a solid option.
As you approach him, he takes a few steps back, keeping the distance, and points the bow back at you."Whoa." You reply, raising your arms."Don't make funny moves.""I just want to talk." You reply, defensively. "Can I sit down somewhere?"He keeps scooting back, but hooks a leg around a small wooden chair lying nearby, knocked to the ground earlier while he was panicking, and pulls it to your side."Thank you." You pick it up and sit. "So... I imagine you'll want to know more about me. I'm Maka, by the way.""I know your name." He replies."Yours?"He hesitates."It's not like it's going to get ruined if you say it.""...Yuumei.

>>32373599The Immaculate Order, also courtesy of the people who (ahem) encouraged its formation, is capable of supporting pretty much any action. Immaculate Philosophy for Babies is that there were the Five Paragons, who were awesome, and should be emulated. There are also the Five Antitheses, who only exist as philosophical constructs, and who you should desperately try to avoid being.The Five Antitheses (who coincidentally look a LOT like their respective-aspected Dragon-Bloods in Limit Break) are That Bitch Who Seeks Power For What It Gets Her From Others, That Self-Absorbed Asshole Who Wrecks Other People's Shit Without Noticing, That Hidebound Asshole Who Clings To The Past For No Good Reason, That Greedy Asshole Who Hoards Shit That Does Him No Good But Could Do Others Good, and That Whiny Fucker Who Keeps Demanding Welfare Rather Than Get Off His Ass.There's a minor running joke that the most likely result of one of the Anathema killing Peleps Deled is the Immaculate Order immediately building a strike team of their finest monks to send the person responsible a gift basket and a "thanks for wrecking his shit" card. Guy is basically that first Antithesis incarnate to the point it seriously concerns his fellow monks.
Rolled 4>>32373751Truly the dice gods live only to drink our tears of despair and impotent frustration.Cursed be their cruel power.

>>32373789no need to be sorrywhen you're unable to hold a session it's okay, the way you're doing that makes more then up for it
Rolled 2>>32373825see >>32373789
Rolled 10>>32373789Don't worry about itAlso can we get an idea about those artifacts we looted from Deled are like?
Rolled 3So if HSDD is a permanent charm, does that mean Maka has essentially brainwashed herself to be even more sensual that she was before?
Rolled 4>>32373757hehAlthough he is in an important position in the hunt. I can imagine that he would be screaming for a wyld hunt when he gets back.
>>32373857INB4 WE BECOME DESUS2.0
Rolled 1>>32373852And when we'll get our boots?>>32373857...Maybe? Would that be a bad thing?
Rolled 10>>32373871HEY! We would never do that to Tia.We have much more pleasant ways to vent our frustration on her.
Rolled 1>>32373873>And when we'll get our boots?I assume we'll get them next time we see Valeriana
Rolled 5>>32373789s'all good, just let us know when/keep us updated if you can
Rolled 7>>32373873There's no 'off' switch. So she does the Jessica Rabbit every time she enters a room, does the Marilyn Monroe every time she takes a walk and does the Sharon Stone every time she sits.It would be a pain in the ass to describe...if you need to write from another character's pov.
>>32373892you know> Rolled 10you're right...DAMN
Rolled 9>>32373894So when we move the Cult to Pearl?>>32373897Yeah, when you go more than a week without even posting on twitter, it makes me worried that you may have dropped the quest.>>32373928I'm not really seeing a problem.>>32373892>>32373932She already basically does whatever we tell her too. So does most of our harem.
>>32373781Luranume, God of Fivefold Luck and Auspicious Surprises. Either that or Plentimon, god of gambling. You're better off trying to fuck with Plentimon; Luranume's got some weird bullshit going on with Luna, the Loom of Fate, and the city of Whitewall.
Rolled 2>>32373928>It would be a pain in the ass to describe...if you need to write from another character's pov.It'd be nice to see at least onceWe might get that chance on the first, it's actually be raelly neat to see Maka from someone elses perspective like we did when we were Tia
Rolled 7>>32373857Yes. I think it was inspired by Perfect Courtesan Calculator that gives an Alchemical an infinite library of sexual innuendo they use whenever they talk.Even when they go high clarity robot-speak
Rolled 4>>32373928>There's no 'off' switchits a pity we can't turn it off and not constantly brainwash people when amongst friends and lovers
>>32373949Why not both?
Rolled 8>>32373947>So when we move the Cult to Pearl?Yup, unless she comes to see us for some reason
Rolled 8>>32373976It only has an effect when acting seducinglyreally not seeing the problem
Rolled 6>>32373999>It only has an effect when acting seductivelyour body does that for us even when we don't want toso we can never hold a normal conversation with a friend or do normal activities without it brainwashing those around us
Rolled 1>>32373961I forgot about that.Fingers crossed for Sidereal.>>32373928>>32373968That's what I'm hoping for.>>32373996An asshole Solar from the first age who UMI'D EVERYBODY into thinking he was great. Basically the worst person ever who is not the Ebon Dragon
Rolled 6>>32373976>not constantly brainwash people when amongst friends and loversIf we're not trying to convince them of anything or change their intimacies, it has no effect. All it does is increase our 'social damage' from 4 to 7 when using sex/romance/seduction. What this DOES mean is that when we're trying to build intimacies like 'Maka is amazing in the sack' or 'I had a fantastic time last night,' we'll be much better at it.So all that we'll be 'brainwashing' our normal friends and lovers of is that we're superhumanly good at sex.Which we are. Especially now that we have this charm.
>>32373947...this is part of the reason, incidentally, that you'll have some trouble with the Immaculates.They're kinda used to dealing with situations where there's a single god/raksha/anathema who's busy bending the minds of others to their will. It's generally how they know who to target first; kill the mind-controller and you can usually trust their attendants to either snap, start infighting over who runs the show now, or realize just how deep the shit they're in is and start helping the Wyld Hunt.Basically from their perspective this whole island is one big bullseye painted on Maka. So no pressure.
Rolled 9>>32374015>so we can never hold a normal conversation with a friend or do normal activities without it brainwashing those around usAny more so than normal, you mean. It only applies when we're doing social influence anyway. It increases our social damage from 4 to 7.Basically, HSDD makes our effective Social score for the purposes of attractiveness, sex, seduction, and romance 3 points higher.
Rolled 5Basically, remember we're a solar, not an infernal.Our permanent charms don't have drawbacks.
>>32374017yeah, he umid himself too
Rolled 4>>32374050Is he a part of EVERBODY? Then I think I covered that.
Rolled 8>>32374017Desus also had a combo that he reflexively used whenever he fucked up to make everyone think it was the other persons faultBasically Desus was THE WORST and it's hard to be him accidentally as long as we don't want it to happen
Rolled 1I wonder what 5 tails take on this scene would be? She sees Maka walk up to temple, knock on the door, step inside when it's opened, get defenestrated a few seconds later and then keeps talking with an enraged Immaculate monk like it ain't nothing special.5 tails might not like her, but she would have to admit that takes serious cohones
Rolled 5>>32374057pretty sure he didn't umid EVERYBODY.For example the Incarnae were save, a bunch of other gods, as were the millions of demons in malfeas, the Jadeborn, the Raksha, most mortals in other directions, the yozi and the neverborn etc.
Rolled 6>>32374073>defenestratedI love that word
Rolled 5>>32374102I just love that, at some point in English history, people were getting chucked out of windows often enough for that word to evolve.
Rolled 1>>32374017He also blinded a giant called Oliphem. All he wanted to do was wonder around the west and be a lighthouse for everyone. That everyone included the Lintha.Even Desus couldn't persuade him to make him stop. We should get our twilight to make him a new eye, before someone does it for us
>>32374125we should really lock her with irene in a room for a few days, it'll be either a total waste of time or the best idea factory ever
>>32373724>ending early.Thanks for running.Dammit, I got here late and had some perfect zingers to chip away at the Immaculate's confidence.-Why does the realm produce and export heroin to all corners of the Earth?That doesn't seem like it helps anyone achieve enlightenment.-Quick question: How many ordinary mortals have achieved Enlightenment in their own lifetimes thanks to the Immaculate philosophy? Have you seen what I've done with Pyre? Within the month she'll be able to awaken her own Essence and see the truths of Creation.-You don't think Peleps Deled is representative of your order? I'd say his actions reflect your order quite well. He did to me, and to hundreds of innocent men and women, what your order has done to countries and kingdoms. "Follow my way of thinking or I'll murder you all" is not the path to true enlightenment. Deled and his type firmly believe that Might Makes Right. But Invictus Sol himself has declared that for all who worship him, Right is what gives us our Might. Which of those philosophies is more worthy of respect?-Since you seem more reasonable, I'll ask you to go to Pyre Spark. Ask her what I said she should do about the Cult of the Sun worshiping me. I'll wait here so you know there is no interference on my part. I'll trust you not to murder her like Deled tried to.r]-Tell me, when the Abyssals flew a flying warship into the city and unleashed skeletons soldiers with fire-powder weapons, where was the Immaculate faith? Did this temple help stop their invasion? Did your brother-monks take to the streets to put down the restless dead? Did feed and house the refugees and orphans created by the attack? I'm sorry, but until you can hold the moral high-ground on your cult's activities, you're going to fight a losing battle here.
Rolled 5>>32374102As do I.More people should look for the opportunity to use it.
Rolled 4>>32374163It's been three weeks since she showed up, we should go see Irene after this and talk to her about ValeAlso bring up that Admiral's gold we found
Rolled 1>>32374177>Why does the realm produce and export heroin to all corners of the Earth?That doesn't seem like it helps anyone achieve enlightenment.There isn't the same hatred of drugs in Creation as there is in the 20th/21st century real world.>Quick question: How many ordinary mortals have achieved Enlightenment in their own lifetimes thanks to the Immaculate philosophy? Have you seen what I've done with Pyre? Within the month she'll be able to awaken her own Essence and see the truths of Creation.Enlightening mortals is actually an Immaculate sin - mortals are protected by ensuring they lead uneventful and fruitful lives according to their station. It's basically a caste system. So, that's a point that works EXTREMELY against our favor if we were to make it to an Immaculate - it's basically actively encouraging mortal endangerment, like encouraging children to drive or something.The Immaculate Order isn't about 'enlightenment.' It's about protecting mortals, regulating gods, and kicking the shit out of rogue spirits, demons, the Fair Folk, and other supernatural hazards. The only people whose enlightenment the Immaculate Order cares about is that of the Exalted, and that's only so they can better serve their mortal constituents in a system of religious Noblesse Oblige.
>>32374244The Immaculate faith is phenomenally well written as setting elements go, in that it's pretty straight-up to the massive benefit of all parties. It's only got one straight-up lie: "the Dragon-Blooded are the rightful rulers of all Creation."The part about "the Anathema are monsters who must be slaughtered wherever they draw breath" is not so much a lie as it is a debatable point with very strong arguments on the Immaculate side.
Rolled 9So on a completely different topicI want to put Maka in a sundress
>>32374414I'm cool with that.
Rolled 4>>32374414The other day I got a whole folder full of outfits I want Maka to wear. Not all of them can be posted on /tg/
Rolled 4>>32374412Yup. It's just important to be clear that 'enlightenement' is in no way, shape, or form their mission statement. It's 'safety' and 'prosperity.' Everything about it is built around those two concepts, to the point that 'enlightenment' is actually seen as badwrong, and to be avoided at all costs, because it's nothing but trouble.
>>32374414>sundressfor shit's 'n' giggles well make it official priest robes
>>32374414Matching outfit for Pyre?
>>32374412Their bit about 'Anything a dragonblooded does is automatically right and nobody is allowed to question them' is pretty much bullshit and the reason my Lunar straight-up murders every Immaculate she comes across.
Rolled 10>>32374444but they can be put on imgur and linked here...
Rolled 9Suitable wear for fighting Lintha?
Rolled 9>>32374545suitable wear for everythingMaka needs a set
>>32374461Not just that, but the their false karma belief, that the Dragonblooded are the highest form of human life, and that if your life is shit you deserve it because you were a bad person in a previous life.
Rolled 7>>32374565I thought the main draw was the red hair. What with the complications with women on ships in the west.
>>32374570hm... maybe we could bend that to our favour>>32374545when we get our hands on orichalcum, let's make these gauntlets
>>32374623They're too claw-y for my tasteI'd rather have something nice and punchy
>>32374623If we ever get some Oricalcum, we'll make the whole set. And the Phoenix Pinions too.That said, we now have a full set of jade platemail and jade claws to give to Amata's family. I'm sure Irene will enjoy tearing them apart for parts. And hearing about the Admiral's Gold. She's going to Squeee so hard.
Rolled 2>>32374623>>32374635I agree, too claw-y. But a set of wings would not be amiss.Wings of the raptor anyone?
>>32374623>hm... maybe we could bend that to our favourThing is, Celestial Exaltation happens because you're already the kind of person who breaks the beliefs.
>>32374666>Wings of the raptorAbsolutely, I've been wanting them ever since Vale mentioned them a while back and I looked up what they are
>>32374461There's a reason that Danaa'd is a Paragon and the Ostentatious Peasant is an Antithesis.That bit of doctrine can be- and is- horribly misused. For understandable reasons, dynasts tend to wield it as a mandate for their peasants to be subservient. The smarter ones don't, because a close reading of the Texts reveals something deeply and fundamentally disturbing. It's not "don't question the Dragon-Blooded, for that is unthinkable." It's "don't question the Dragon-Blooded if the monks aren't backing you up, because that results in you being turned into paste."Every once in a while the Sidereals would like to refine the overall mood of the Realm by subjecting one of its leaders to a humiliating political defeat. There is no such thing as a peasant rebellion. But there is such a thing as the Immaculates taking steps to remove the unrighteous from power.The fact that it happens to look a LOT like a peasant rebellion lead by Immaculates who were peasant-born? Eh. Details.
>>32374545>>32374635>>32374666Ever play Code of Princess?
>>32374749Too much pink and not enough gold, but something like that could work.
Rolled 8>>32374749Way ahead of you anon.
>>32374749For our battle armor I'd actually kinda want something more armor-y than lewd, I'd still like it to be lewd of course
Rolled 9>>32374749Way, way ahead of you.
>>32374800Once we're into Oricalcum artifacts the actual armor content doesn't matter. Essence force fields and literal rule-of-cool will do the job.
Rolled 2>>32374800What about this, but in bronze and gold.
>>32374816Oh I figured, I just meant I prefer a more armored look for our battle wear
>>32374816It's about keeping up appearances,
>>32374783Of course the metal bits would be replaced with Orichacum at the first opportunity, and the cloth bits would be Cobalt (the other, non gold color of Zeniths) and made of Gossamer or Silken armor depending.
Rolled 10>>32374816You mean rule-of-lewd
>>32374832This I actually kinda like, maybe add a dress around the hips
>>32374829When you can pull stuff like pic related off, then looks and preferences are all that matter.
>>32374832This works. Add in some white veils along the shoulders and hips and you're done.
>>32374749>>32374793>>32374804Excellent>>32374847>>32374856Adding Cloth to cover more? Are we talking about the same Maka here?
>>32374847Dress eh? I can dig something up.
>>32374793>>32374804This armor has the same problem as the the armor that other anon was pushing for before, it just throws Maka's body at people, proper lewd should be more about getting people to want to see it, show just enough that people want to see more
>>32374872Feh, wrong version.
>>32374839orichalcum bits with cobalt blue gossamer parts? sounds damn awesomeadditionally the wings of the raptor would give us awesome tatical advantage... not that we would need it by the time we get enough materials for all that stuff
>>32374873Pretty tall order.
>>32374873Everyone has different tastes anon
>>32374869>Adding Cloth to cover more? Are we talking about the same Maka here?Of course. Properly lewd clothing should entice and excite. It should inspire people to want to take that clothing off (to the exclusion of everything else). Just presenting a nude body isn't 'lewd', it's just crass.
>>32374904Wonder if we can fit Tia with something like this.
>>32374913This anon knows what's up
>>32374916I'd favor pic related, personally.
>>32374895>>32374913>>32374921To me how lewd an outfit should be depends on the circumstances, and the style of the outfit more than how much it covers.Pic related would be inappropriate on the battlefield or in a political setting, but might be okay in a religious one.
>>32374913>>32374921But going in the complete opposite direction and going for sheer over the top lewd factor is also a valid style choice.http://rule34.paheal.net/post/view/116758#search=Oh_My_GoddessThis is a case in point. Link is obviously NOT WORK SAFE.
>>32374960I think we found Maka's wedding dress.
>>32374984No that's terrible
>>32374960Political setting? Got you covered.
>>32374984No, that's kinda terrible. The peircings clash, there's no enticement, no thrill. It's just a peice of meat standing there with a vapid expression on its face. That's not Maka at all.
>>32374984we always can go uberlewd, but last time we needed a ration of maiden tea to feel safe afterwards
>>32374984Well, if we're posting impractically lewd outfit ideas then how about http://imgur.com/i9mqvbk
>>32375004See I like this one, something to keep in mind is that Maka's a Queen, we need something lewd while not diminishing our image image of being a Double Queen
>>32375032But we also need to work in her Priestess role now.
>>32374984If you really want to go with something like that, put the piercings along the collarbone and sternum and string translucent white-and-gold veils between them so that everyone can see the goods, but there's still cloth in the way of touching them.
>>32375041A bigger stick? I don't really see the difference between the two roles excepting that priest garb can be even more lewd. Since prayer is an 'offering' to the gods, if you know what i mean.
Rolled 10>>32375041How about pope hats on her tits?
>>32375030I like it, though the nails are very distracting, Maka obviously wouldn't have anything like those.>>32375032>>32375041What about this?
>>32374904And a lot of people hated that other armor, it got people arguing about it everytime it came up
>>32375079Firstly, proof of concept of uberlewd. Got shouted down.Second, i have no real intention of pushing for that or similar getups. Hell, i shouted down that last guy to try it.Third, the lack of covering is kinda the point.
>>32375041For that we just need to have some UCS imagery on our armor and were solid
>>32375117I wasn't talking about pic related specifically, but more about what level of lewd is appropriate in an outfit.
>>32375112I saved that pic
Rolled 10Damn, i was on the road and had no net.Too badI don't think we have to argue that the Immaculate Faith is wrong per say. Id rather argue that they are slowly going the road of the first Deliberative.Without regulation they are going to end up as the first solars.We need to state that we have no intention of that happening to ourselves but we cannot in good conscious not warn or try to help out those who realize this as well.Couple this with our choice in the cult of the unconquered sun and we can make a good case that we honestly do not want to repeat the mistakes of the first age Solars, and could make a case that the Realm and the Immaculate faith is slowly going down that road save for a few happy and lucky incidents.Compounding this with the Abyssals who are every bit if not way way worse than what the Immaculates preach and I would think a smart person would steel itself as hard as it can and try to get the Solars who can be talked to and are obliviously behaving or at least trying not to full on First age madness on at least a agreement to to fuck up one another shit.We all want something better. Some of us like Maka is not satisfied with better just for herself.Maka wants better for everyone so she can have better than she could have had before that by default.If this Agent of the Realm goes for Safety and prosperity we have to play those angles.Show that we are a agent of Safety&Prosperity(TM), and in some ways better than most Realm Agents and sometimes Immaculates.We can use the simple admittance and existence of someone like Peleps Deled without the heavy oversight to make him function like a regular agent a point for us.He said that not all are like Peleps Deled, but they tolerated him, so there is a sin of association.
>>32375159each having it's own cult
>>32375151That is the level of lewd that got shouted down.
>>32375156How about thishttp://imgur.com/jbdbSHfNote: The image itself isn't super lewd, but 4chan won't let me post it directly for some reason
>>32375177That's why I wasn't bringing it up until someone else did. It was made abundantly clear last time that I'm the only one who wants that as Maka's outfit.
>>32375187I don't actually have a problem with those, but we were talking about armor to wear to battle
>>32375214Perhaps you were, but I was talking about outfits in general
>>32375187Much better. I like the pink, cobalt is more appropriate though.
>>32375236Fair enough, and I do actually like that dress
>>32375177That ones nice, and it comes with some Wings of the Raptor
>>32375208I feel for you. I felt the same what we voted for that moth yellow sweater. I didn't like it, but i had to suck it up.Of course i rejoiced when that ugly thing died a butterfly filled death.
>>32375272I don't like the shield. Reminds me of soulsteel.
>>32375314Oh yeah we don't need that
Rolled 3>>32375314I like the shield, just make it look happier
>>32375283Your sympathy is appreciated, but I have plenty of new outfit ideas. Still think >>32375151 is the best though.>>32375314>>32375321I kinda like it, though it needs a different facial expression. However, we don't really use weapons or shields.
