The battle draws on and decisive blows are made, a strange power originating from the priest and Beliala's regeneration proving nigh-indomitable.During Jackie's final gambit, the day appears to be won. Yet celebration was cut short, by the demon as she pulled through, regenerating even through Jackie's final attack.The time and day are unknown.>ObjectivesPrimary: > Escape from where they're processing Overs...Optional directive:>Save people squandering their potential.(Lucifer)Twitter>https://twitter.com/Overhuman_QuestAsher's Sheet>http://pastebin.com/kmsL31FP Encyclopedia/Characters>http://pastebin.com/n7kNbtwG
Your head rests in Luci's as the too of you lie in bed. She plays with your shaggy brown hair as you sigh into her grasp. Feeling warm and at home, even for the moment you try to forget about the situation of your body back in the real world. For now, you'll enjoy your time like this.You've never really had a woman do this to you. Just innocently playing with your hair, letting you seek some refuge in her pocket and just rest for a bit.Helia might let you do it but...“You seem disturbed by something, Love.” Her voice is like the most saccharine lover, exuding an aura of affection while still bearing the understanding of a mother and the subtlest mystique of a seductress. A hand traces over your cheek, and the contours of your jaw as she looks down to you, her beauty bared to the world.“Just wondering about a woman back in the real world.” You're quiet for a moment before looking up into her blue eyes that glisten like sapphires with far-off stars dazzling from within. “It all could've gone better, couldn't it?”You say as you lay your head back down, idly staring at a fireplace that's appeared at the foot of the bed to cast a warm glow upon the two of you.“Indeed. Though mortals once tended to only have so much leeway in altering their fates. It's no surprise that you aren't quite used to altering yours yet.” She lifts your hand to her lips, planting a chaste kiss as she slowly wraps her hands around yours, interlacing and unlocking her fingers to feel across the entirety of your hand.“As it is now, this is still not your end Asher. I do not console those destined to die.”> “I want to know some things.”> “I need more power.”> “How can I save them?”> “I love you.”> (Other)
Huh. Got my days mixed up for what to run...Guess I'll just do AoPH tomorrow?
>>3244738524 hours early? Not complaining or anything, though. Anyway...> “I want to know some things.”What do you get out of all of this (our missions)? Asherah wants power, Donner wants to reproduce, but what is Luci's game?
>>32447483You'll lose players for both.Some people probably haven't even checked the twitter because they assume it's O(h)L.It's Just the first post, you can still delete and go back.
>>32447385> “I want to know some things.”yay early overhuman
>>32447519I might need to go with it. I still don't have the thing done for AoPH and it's going to be needed if the next AoPH makes enough progress.Didn't get any time to work on it today due to family time.I was planning on finishing it up today...My decision will be based on how many votes turn out right now.
>>32447660>I still don't have the thing done for AoPHWhat are you even working on?>My decision will be based on how many votes turn out right now.Well, you know. Samefagging.You really need to think these things through, man. There's no use in telling people whether or not you'll continue based on how many votes come up since they can easily just spam votes. Just go ahead, since you've already archived the thread.
>>32447709A map of the islands. It's taken some time because I'm a rusty artist and I'm trying to make the geography make at least remote sense even barring poke-weather and terrain.
>>32447746AoPH is shit and the followers are shit, run this one.
>>32447804Oi. Don't be like that.
>>32447546Anything you want to ask in particular?
Can we just go ahead and buy> Geokinesis: Manipulation of earth, sand, and soil. Advanced stages will allow for spontaneous creation, fissures, golemmancy through summoning, earthforge creation, and manipulation of spiritual properties and dabbling in crystals.
>>32447838How can I unfuck myself from this gigantic pit of fuck.
>>32447385> “I need more power.”One day I aspire to be the one showing up out of nowhere to push someones shit in.
>>32447385>> “I need more power.”Please help us Lucy.
>>32447385> “I need more power.”> “I love you.”This is bad. This is really bad but I'm voting for it anyways. Dran you crazy motherfucker.
>>32447940>> “I love you.”please no
>>32447385The only one that matters.
>>32447385>> “I need more power.”> “I love you.”Pretty sure one will lead to the other. And who needs human girls?
>>32447940supporting "I love you"
>>32447385>Your head rests in Luci's lap as the two of you lie in bed.fml.
>>32447981Is this a vote for "I love Luci?"
>>32448051Sure. I'm ok with going full crazy with Asher.
>>32448092>Lucifer... IS A WOMAN!>And I... LOVE HER!>Luci, I...>LUCI~ I'M HOOOME! *Cue sitcom laugh track.*
>>32447964I was scared of another Fara situation, but really, the only problem with Fara was that she wasn't strong enough to make up for the murdering of our friends. Luci, however, is probably one of the strongest things out there. Even if she ends up doing crazy shit or trying to manipulate us, we'll still get to have a fun time with it.
This is completely insane and I'm perfectly alright with it.
>>32448180I don't think I care at this point. Attempting at all to keep allies alive sucks. Not being insane sucks.Bring on the crazy.
>>32448051Dran, if Luci friendzone's Asher, I will cry. I swear I'll do it.
>>32448208To be honest, I want to keep Hot Rod alive, I don't give a shit about any of the others. Maybe the tranny too because it seems pretty chill.
>>32448252Hunter was dead to me the very second he decided to call himself Hot Rod.
>>32448252>I want to keep Hot Rod aliveAs do I.
>>32448273Aww come on. It fits his God, though. And his enthusiasm is endearing.
Looks like Dran fell asleep again.
You rise from her lap, sitting upon the bed cross legged and hunched over a little as you rub at your neck. Even if this isn't real, you enjoy all of the little nuances of your real body. Though that's probably only because- You feel her hands at your back, soothing out the stress and pain with gentle yet forceful touches. You give in to the massage and let her knead your body like clay. It's therapeutic, and like before, this isn't something you've ever experienced with a real woman. Yes, you've had sex, and you've shared a first kiss. But sex is cheap, and the kisses never had any need behind them... Aside from that woman you fucked on the day that this all started. The day that the world changed and everyone thought they were all going to die.It may have just been the drugs, but out of all the men there, she chose you to kiss as though she was going to die, like she needed to know everything about you even though she knew nothing about you.Sex with her was like the passion of a hurricane ready to break harbor, but that's likely just the ecstasy talking. Yeah. It was the ecstasy. That's what you've gotten by with whenever you remembered that chick.Might be that you're just clinging to something that you'd like to believe but... She drapes herself around you, looking into one of your eyes from your peripheral, “What are you thinking about?” A whisper, and a hand slides down your chest, caressing your pectorals to draw out a hesitated breath.Reaching around, you lasso her around the waist and push her down into the bed, staring into your eyes as she bites her finger with a coy grin and bedroom eyes,” Oh my... What are you doing?”
Staring into her sapphire eyes, you breath heavily, gripping the sheets, and bending down to just before her lips, “I love you.” In the next breath, you kiss her. She melts into your grasp, wrapping her legs around your back and guiding you.“We've got the time, why don't you show me?” Her eyes roll up, a little, fluttering as you join, and you rut her.“Yes... Yes... You human trash... Show me your struggle!”You are human trash, you struggle everyday of your worthless life.“I'll be... Be your star... And guide you through the dark!”She is your shining light, the one that keeps you from losing yourself to the shit of this world.“You will light... The path for others... with my flame... Burn away the despair... of mediocrity... Yes... and rend the shackles of order asunder! Hnnn!”Everyone will be liberated from their weakness, the day to day. You are the champion that will purify them with flame, free them from the tyranny of-“God! Yes!”Everything goes dark as you feel her light embrace you …
>>32448778>“God! Yes!” - LuciferHuh.Also, it looks like the crazy arrived right on cue. Excellent.
And Asher's heart grew 3 sizes that day
>>32448738>>32448778Well I'm glad I just finished fapping not even one minute before I hit f5.
>>32448954Luci didn't tell Asher she loved him back. Fuckthisgayearth.jpg
>>32448778>>32448738Did we become Lucy's champion
>>32449086This is my biggest worry. But that makes it when she does say it all that more special.
>>32449086We you seriously expecting that?
I'm looking forward to seeing Father Assrape again after this.
“You must have power, love.” You come to, in a dark place nigh-devoid of light save for Luci's own form radiating warmth, light, and knowledge against the ignorance of darkness.Slowly, you start to become aware of yourself, a hollow vessel filled with darkness, only to find reprieve by standing in Luci's light. You feel tears well up within your eyes as she makes you aware of the loneliness you've repressed.“Yes... I need to become stronger. To do your will and change the world to how I see fit...”Her hands touch your cheeks and she kisses you again. And you can only feel faithful that she would waste her time on a worthless maggot like yourself.“Then learn how to use your power.”>Lucifer has gifted you with 4 Lucilimit for expenditure on Pyromancy or Summoning.“You have time here, in this empty domain,” She walks around you, her eyes bathing you in her grace the entire time. “I shall instruct you in how to use your magic, and just the same, you may teach yourself more advanced incantations to dominate the true world.”Her hand blesses your cheek with a smooth touch, and a smile forms upon her lips,”Your power is to tear the truth asunder and rewrite it with your own lies. Remember this.”>You may train Spells, develop and practice Cantrips in this space.>The limit for cantrip practice here is three.
>>32449239and we became a faggot
>>32449239Upgrade summoning and pyromancy both to adept right now.Start working on that fire construct armour body cantrip that's Summoning+Pyromancy (and materia Firma I guess?)
Would you guys be too terribly concerned if I took out steam and Ice as upgrades and just chained them to hydrokinesis?-Aerokinesis-(Prime Elementary) [Apprentice 0/4]-Pyromancy(Advanced Prime Elementary) [Apprentice 0/4]-Materia Firma-(Enchantment) [Apprentice 0/4]-Illusion-(Meta) [Novice 0/2]-Summoning-(Meta) [Apprentice 0/4]Or unlocking> Geokinesis: Manipulation of earth, sand, and soil. Advanced stages will allow for spontaneous creation, fissures, golemmancy through summoning, earthforge creation, and manipulation of spiritual properties and dabbling in crystals. > Electrokinesis:The manipulation of electricity, originating from the power of air or possibly metal. Early spells will be no more than slight shocks and static while advanced will lead to magnetism, plasma gathering, and true electron manipulation.> Ferrokinesis: Manipulation of earth metals. Early stages are restricted to what's present and known. Advanced stages will allow spontaneous metal creation from nothing, and the their spiritual and scientific traits to be applicable to other -mancies. >Florakinesis: The ability to control the bodies of plants. Any known traits of the flora will be tapped into and abused. Plant fibers will move to your command.>Photokinesis: The manipulation of particles of light. It'll be a difficult skill to master to great effect, yet it could also be one of the most powerful as you blind enemies, sear their flesh with focused rays, and enchant light.
>>32449350nosteam and ice is all waternice LuciLimit pointsrank up pryomancy
>>32449350>Would you guys be too terribly concerned if I took out steam and Ice as upgrades and just chained them to hydrokinesis?That's how they should have been from the start. As for the 2 LIMIT we sunk into them, I don't even care if we get a refund or not at this point.>-Pyromancy(Advanced Prime Elementary) [Apprentice 0/4]Put 4LIMIT into it.>-Summoning-(Meta) [Apprentice 0/4]4LuciLIMIT
>>32449398Steam was free. But I'd refund the 1 point for ice.
>>32449441>Steam was freeReally? Huh. Well alrighty then. I really need to reread through the beginning at some point.
>>32449441What would happen with our Oath of the Sculptor?
>>32449441I think we might want to hang onto that one.The value of using a LIMIT point to blow this joint and bring a bunch of overs under our banner would actually be worth all the LIMIT points we lose out on from the encounter.
>>32449481I think it'd probably just get applied to hydrokinesis and reworded a bit.>+ranks when using hydrokinesis to form or control ice defensively, -ranks when using hydrokinesis to form or control ice offensively
>>32449350I'd like to keep our alchemy options open. That requires adept, right? If so, push pyro and aero to adept and unlock geo or save for combat.That gives two adept skills to work with, and leaves the option for alchemy dabbling open.
>>32449514Alchemy only requires apprentice in the air/fire/earth/water to unlock.Right now we need fire and summoning for actually doing things.
>>32449514Need apprentice to start.Lucifer package>Adept Pyro(4Luci>Adept Summoning(4LIMITAlchemist's package>Adept Pyro (4Luci>Apprentice Geokinesis(3LIMITStore them->4 Lucilimit should still be spent...
>>32449576Alchemist's PackageI want Asher to be as combat viable as possible without relying on summons.
>>32449576Alchemist's package. It makes our unlocking of the chakra's actually worthwhile. Plus, Luci can probably help us get Alchemy.
>>32449626You know that the Lucifer package lets us essentially make power armour out of fire, right?
>>32449641So does the alchemist package
>>32449641Both give us that.
>>32449660>>32449655The fire armour is a summoning + pyromancy cantrip that needs adept ranks.So no. We don't get it from buying geokinesis.
>>32449641This is true. Very very true.>>32449655>>32449673This is so. It'll reduce the burn by a lot. Mind also that adept ranks are when spells abandon the logic of reality even further.
>>32449673That's pyromancy + terra firma
>>32449700No it's not.
>>32449673Yeah we do, it just gets less burn with the summoning.And considering you're all retarded and can't make contracts for shit, I'll take the Geokinesis.
>>32449700It's summoning, pyro, and materia firma.All three are needed.Pyro for the medium, MF to make it corporal, Summoning to program it with independent action. (Ability to function and respond to threats without direct input. Would be pretty literal and nuances handled by me.)
>>32449766But at the end of the day it's ineffective against bones.
>>32449766So, just to keep in mind. What exactly are we getting with alchemy? Is it combat effective, or just utility?
>Alchemist's packageIt is.
>>32449833Utility and combat utility at first. Combat down the line. It's not exactly FMA alchemy until later.
>>32449801Almost anything nerves and drop on bones are ineffective against bones unless it's some instant damage stuff. Not like I care what we do though at this point.
>>32449833It allows us to get around a Bone's ability to eat magic.
>>32449842By the how would an Astra work?
Now for Cantrips. This is the important part.Asher only has a few to his name.Cantrips are programs that achieve effects greater than any one component spell.I'll give you guys one as a freebie.>Changing Devil's Grin to "Fiend">First Earth Cantrip is "Pit">Writing, you guys brainstorm.
>>32449865The alchemist package isn't going to do that. We have 2 LIMIT left over now. 1 will go towards actually buying alchemy whenever we manage to unlock it. Then we need to get 5 more to bring it up to a level of usefulness in combat. And that's assuming we don't need to use one of our unspent LIMIT points to bust out of Overwatch, which we probably will since we still have low firepower.
>>32449933We could try to get a start on the fire armor. Call it "hell knight" or something cheesy like all our cantrips are going to be called.
>>32449933Is this where we're supposed to try to mix Pyro/Geo/Hydro/Aero all at once to figure out the Alchemy?
>>32449993we could just call it fire armor.
>>32450029Could do it, yeh.You have 1 LIMIT left.
>>32450039And we could just call "Devil's Grin" something like Incendiary Detonation of Magically Compressed Air.
>>32450047Might as well.
>>32450047I thought we had 2 because of the Ice refund.>Had 4 LIMIT>4Luci spend for pyro>3 LIMIT spent for Geo>1 LIMIT left>+1 LIMIT from Ice
>>32450055nope, that's too long to say conveniently
>>32450062Or you can bank it just in case. You can use it to escape for a pretty shitty situation.
>>32450055How about Hellforged Armor
Along the lines of what Dran wants us to be thinking of, if you don't follow DLN:>>32369133
>>32450081IDOMCA is a nice 3 syllable word that rolls off the tongue easier than Devil's Grin.
Guys: before we go to far: we really need to think about our power sets.The preacher who became an over at the same time as us just wrecked our shit. Almost everyone we talked to focuses on one or two things, and we have every kenesis in the book.We need to get some vertical power fast, and now. We need something that we can throw at an opponent and KILL it with, without this "well the sticky fire kinda annoys them and summons can help and sometimes I can block with ice and maybe spear it if its slow.."I don't care that much about what it is. i think fire is done to hell and that taking things to 0 kelvin aka heat death would be awesome, but it doesn't matter. We NEED some power and soon because we keep getting our shit slapped HARD.
>>32450112Well alright then. I guess we're doing that.
>>32450117I just tried saying it now, and testing results point to you being objectively wrong.
>>32450138We just unlocked Alchemy, which we'll be dumping pretty much all of our points into for the next two dozen or so we get if things go how I think they are gonna.
>>32450138I want to max summoning so we can stop calling such shitty betamax monsters. They all suck.
>>32449933Can we thoughtform a sentient gun? It could fire complicated spell bullets (really just a focus for high burst damage cantrips)? I'm thinking caster gun ala Outlaw Star....
>>32450173And what does alchemy do?Ok: scenerio: the bone with the crazy armor from last thread is in the same room as us and wants us dead, wut do?surround her in 0 kelvin Ice, almost instantly freesing her solid and killing her. Blow her apart with a heat wave that atomizes her very bones, or...what? alchemize stuff? Maybe I don't know what it does, but I would rather have some actually offensive power than all of this utility shit that hasn't done a great job of keeping us or our servants alive.>>32450212I really like the idea of summoning, and this QM is doing a good job with it, but I think it's up there with fire for over-donenes. I vote ice.
>>32449933We could name the black hole ward "Ignorance", since this whole sequence seems to have shown that light = knowledge.Instead of picturing the science of superdense matter, picture a total lack of understanding that needs to have all the knowledge (magic) jammed into it.
>>32450267That is fucking awesome.
>>32450267Or we could name it "Black hole" Seems simple enough.
>>32450267You, you I like anon
>>32450267Void, nothingness, ignorance, cold(i'm a bitch for ice), endlessness.I like this theme.
>>32450267Man, black holes are fucking awesome in any incarnation they appear in.
>>32450333Why do you have a huge hard on for ice? The summoning gives us good plot hooks and we love Lucy and her fire vaggo.
>>32450248Why would you vote ice for killing power when we put an oath on it that will fuck us over if we ever use it offensively?
>>32450371I actually have a good guess, but I want to see what he says.
>>32450248Alchemy is awesome because it creates permanent changes in matter than do not require magical input to sustain. One flash of magic and the change is done. It's hard for a bone to eat things you throw at them with Alchemy because you use bursts of magic to throw ridiculous mundane things at them.Alchemy at Adept can do matter->energy conversions. This is the level of thing we're dealing with.It also would let us summon up Mythos things, then graft them onto Asher's body. You know Balor's eye? The thing that kills whatever it looks at? We could use alchemy to implant that into Asher's empty eyesocket and obtain a deathgaze spell from it.
>>32449933"Blaster":Form a solid ball of earth and use aeromancy to accelerate towards a target. Use pyromancy to detonate it just before contact and send shards of earth shooting forward. Pros: Simple, long range, can't be eaten by bones (just like Jackie's spells, the magic only gets it moving so there is no magic to eat once it hits).
>>32450371I'm not that guy you link to but I don't not that it matters at all though
>>32450382Ice isn't killing them, Cold is.>>32450371Mainly because I haven't seen it done much before. Also, I just passed Thermo2 and the whole heat death thing appeals to me. With things around 0 degrees kelvin, atoms stop vibrating and all chemical reactions stop. It's basically as close to "eternal suspended animation/time stop" as physics allow us to get. Also: there is basically no defense against heat transfer that isn't fragile as fuck.>>32450392ok...I can see potential there. I still say we need some offense NOW because we might have to use it break out of this facility.
>>32450248>>32450392Really, the biggest pro of Alchemy for me is that it lets Asher overcome the Nerve's weakness.He can become more than human.
>>32450392>You know Balor's eyeMore fucking Celtic shit? I thought we got rid of you people.
>>32450448>Ice isn't killing them, Cold is.That really doesn't work. It's like pushing someone off a roof and saying that your shove didn't kill them, the ground did.
>>32450453T'was norse ye olde bitch'n were about.>Post incoming.
>>32450390What was your guess?>>32450525It depends on how much of a lawyer you want to be about it, but I think you are right. We don't need to do ice, we could just get some sort of "thermomancy" and tear the heat right out of them.>>32450448The more I think about it, the more this thermomancy shit makes sense. We have some ice, we have some fire, we are investigating into alchemy and the fundamentals of creation, why not investigate into the fundamentals or energy too? It works with dark holes and all sorts of other shit.
>>32450532They're both shit
>>32450575Not what you said.
>>32450578Better than Egyptians.>>32450613I'm curious.
>>32450622The Hindu gods would have given us nukes.
>>32450656Most of the Hindu gods aren't even sure that reality exists or that there are separate "selves" or that suffering is anything but an internal conflict.
>>32450656But we already have a magical nuke.
>>32450656>Not wanting to summon the Cthulhu Mythos.What's the worst that could happen?
>>32450703Not yet. Alchemy before Adept is absolute garbage. The best thing you can do with it is transmute the air above someone into rocks.Hilarious, but lacking in real power.
In this void-space you can feel the darkness tingle with apprehension. The truth yet ignorance of this place crawling all around you like thousands upon millions of insignificant bugs.Expressing your power into this place, you feel it twist and distort as you cast an explosion into the dark, amplified to purpose as to how great you want it- want yourself to be.It's like a small sun, as the fire blooms out, scattering like a blossom and fettering the dark space.“Practice Asher. Keep practing...”You let the explosions go again and again as you demonstrate your mastery over fire, and yet, you know it is not enough. Like fireworks, these detonations lose their impact after some time.You don't feel any drain here. You're just moving things around after all, like stirring water.You set off your next explosion into the jaws that you'd created before. You had thought to call it Devil's Maw but...That seems crass, doesn't it?“Fiend,” You snap, and detonate what was once a Devil's Grin. One syllable. Rolls off the tongue well, and you smile at that. No incantation yet, but you'll manage. Your flame is stronger and this spell is a perfect expression of the power of a fireball sans the need to aim.You snap fiend into the explosive bite, and decide to rename that as well. “Fiend-Hound” You snap and clench your fist, the great pyroclastics biting down and persisting. With a shake of your fist, you simulate a dog thrashing prey.Content, you let it go.Your chakras swell and you can feel the churn of the earth, actualizing it into this strange space to use. With your previous castings, you get an absolutely malevolent idea.With the drop of a finger, the earth sinks away, and then you snap,” Fiend.” The hole belches flame, soon dropping down and flickering away into the expanse.
Speaking of nukes, what power would we need to say... create deadly radiation particles? Just wondering.
>>32450703Actual magic nukes not alchemically created ones.
Again. “Pit,” You drop your finger, another hole appearing in the earth, and snap,” Fiend.” It erupts, even greater than before, veins of flames gushing through cracks in the earth.One movement now. You drop your finger and snap, the earth splits open like a maw, and explodes flame from its abyss, persisting for some time as it wears itself out. “Pit Fiend,” You name your new toy with a smile.“Pit-Fiend-Hound,” A drop of your finger, a snap, and then a clench of your fist causes the earth to break open, explode into fangs, and then the earth itself chase after the burning teeth as though to swallow prey.Excellent.>Next (3) cantrips?> “Ignorance”- Convert Black Hole into a useable ward.> “Dust” Break earth and scatter it into the wind. Likely compatible with Hound and chainable from Pit.> “Orb” Manifests a sphere of earth or other corporal element under caster's dominion. May chain into Fiend, Hound, Dust, or be merely manipulated at will.> “Rain” Combine Hydro, Pyro, and Aero to create rainfall. Can be chained into Hound.> (other)
>>32450733Alchemy could do it at Adept rank
>>32450757> “Ignorance”- Convert Black Hole into a useable ward.Because black holes are awesome> “Rain” Combine Hydro, Pyro, and Aero to create rainfall. Can be chained into Hound.Because maybe we can turn it into acid rain or something> “Orb” Manifests a sphere of earth or other corporal element under caster's dominion. May chain into Fiend, Hound, Dust, or be merely manipulated at will.Because it reminds me of that one Golden Sun spell where you took the terrain around you, turned it into a sphere and threw it at the enemies and blew the fuck out of everything.
>>32450757>[x] “Ignorance”- Convert Black Hole into a useable ward.>[x] “Orb” Manifests a sphere of earth or other corporal element under caster's dominion. May chain into Fiend, Hound, Dust, or be merely manipulated at will.>[x] (other)Attempt to unlock Alchemy?
>>32450757> “Ignorance”- Convert Black Hole into a useable ward.Obvious.> “Orb” Manifests a sphere of earth or other corporal element under caster's dominion. May chain into Fiend, Hound, Dust, or be merely manipulated at will.Versatile and probably a good start at a Bone-killing spell.> “Dust” Break earth and scatter it into the wind. Likely compatible with Hound and chainable from Pit.This is a great Vein killer. Use the dust to contaminate the Vein's soul the second they try to cast.
>>32450757can you clarify what those fangs are? your descriptions are awesome but i would like a bit more crunch> “Ignorance”- Convert Black Hole into a usable ward.we all like this. but i dont like any of the others. i am starting to agree with that ice guy. it would work really well with black holescould we use the black hole thing to "move" between two different holes? blinking would be fucking useful
>>32450864It's a fucking ward.
>>32450864"Ignorance" isn't even a black hole or worm hole or whatever at this point. It's just a hyperdense ball of hungry hungry antimagic.Also, it's a ward. I don't get how people don't get that wards are not in the physical realm. They stay purely in the astral to fuck up spells.
>>32450757> “Ignorance”- Convert Black Hole into a useable ward.> “Dust” Break earth and scatter it into the wind. Likely compatible with Hound and chainable from Pit.> “Orb” Manifests a sphere of earth or other corporal element under caster's dominion. May chain into Fiend, Hound, Dust, or be merely manipulated at will.
>>32450757>[X] “Ignorance”- Convert Black Hole into a useable ward.Duh. We need some defense.Do we have to spend all 3 points? can we save some until we talk about it more? I still REALLY REALLY want Ice/Heat Death/Entropy powers.
>>32450925>>32450864Maybe Pyro will branch into straight up Temperature control, which will then let us remove heat or at least just move it somewhere else.
>>32450925Are you a retard? We're not actually spending points we're making cantrips.
>>32450886>>32450903ok sure whatever. is blinking a go or not? it's a great way to avoid dead>>32450958he did say "Next (3) cantrips". canwe just make as many as we want?
>>32450998As long as we have free time yes.
>>32450998>canwe just make as many as we want?No, because Dran probably wants to get back to the plot before the thread ends.
>>32450956Ice could branch into it too. Really almost anything could because heat is fundamentally energy and motion.
>>32450998No go. This has been explained several times in every thread since wards were introduced.Wards do not affect the physical plane. So long as Asher has a physical body, he can't travel using a ward.
>>32450998yeah dude blinking is definitely a gototally viable
>>32451086Don't give the idiot ideas troll.
>>32450864>can you clarify what those fangs are? your descriptions are awesome but i would like a bit more crunchIts crunching power is defined by Materia Firma. THey crunch as much as they can with the solid mass that they're given. Earth crunches better than fire, de-facto.As for the potential of blinking, teleporting is dangerous if you fuck up and other persons would still require direct contact to initiate.And the "Ignorance" Spell is a ward, it only exists in astral.This is so.>>32451040Also so >>32451029Taking count soon unless anyone wants to propose another cantrip.
>>32450757>[x] (other)"Shield" Rapidly erect a wall of Earth (or Ice I suppose if all we got is water for some reason.)
>>32451101I gotta have fun somehow
>>32451120Basic but Necessary. Could have a prefix depending on the circumstances such as "Ice Shield" or "Rock Shield".
>>32451120Basic but good. And following the other simple words it would expedite a switch from offense to defense and vice-versa.
>>32451120I'll throw this one into the others since Asher's been doing this.
>>32451101jus because im new doesnt mean i want to fuck this up. this quest is really awesome sofar.
>>32451258I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and act like you're not trolling.Go read the archives before you hop into thread 27.
>>32451258it was awesomeand then the retard nation invaded
>>32451290Where did the retard nation invade?
>>32451300Probably the Fara ordeal, which admittedly, we could have handled better.
>>32451300round thread 10ish
>>32451325Eh..I think it was a good learning experience. It showed that our choices actually can fuck us over later. Plus this whole possession thing is a great sub-plot.>>32451300When people started bitching about retards instead of contributing.
Y'know what'd be a fucked up Cantrip?"Bake" - form an earthen oven around the target and then blast superheated air into it.
>>32451426Best way to deal with children and jews.
>>32451426Sounds like some straight out of Auschwitz. Awesome
>>32451370I don't see the point of contributing when my sensible choices will be drowned by your relentless tide of stupidity.
>>32451453Shush.>>32451426This is good, I'll put it in my notes to develop more later.
>>32451471Also: Also: Don't forget:THERMOMANCYActually I have questions about it. How much can we directly affect other person's bodies? I assume not much.
>>32451471Could we summon the shade of someone we haven't personally met but know about?
>>32451607How new are you and have you read the previous threads?
>>32451607Directly?>*Spells that directly affect a human body requires direct contact. This means that water manipulation CAN be used to exsanguinate someone, though you'd need to make direct contact and muscle through their magical resistance(aura/AT field/Chi/) This means that it can be much more efficient to launch a shard of ice into their throat when going for a kill. Close range is never recommended for Evoker Nerves.
>>32451607You're doing this shit on purpose, aren't you?
>>32451642Very, I read them all yesterday and this-morning. When reading that much my comprehension probably isn't very good. I've also had other things going on...I thought you liked new people in quests?>>32451650Thanks. So no tearing the head out of someone directly then. Does encasing them in ice count as using Ice to kill? What about frozen Oxygen?
>>32451607It's getting really hard to not call you retard.>>32451702>I thought you liked new people in quests?Only if they're competent. Which you're not.>Does encasing them in ice count as using Ice to kill? What about frozen Oxygen?Both would count as ice.
>>32451702>Does encasing them in ice count as using Ice to kill? What about frozen Oxygen?Yes for sure to the former. As for the latter, I'm going to say probably. It depends on whether or not we unlock Cryo/Thermo from something else. And we're not nearly high enough leveled for it anyway.
>>32451735First: be nice.Second: frozen oxyagen and frozen water are about as similar as paint and plastic.
>>32451702Did you read the meta discussions about how shit works in the setting? You're going to need to if you want to actually participate in discussion, otherwise you're just going to keep saying the same shit that people have brought up and had shot down for months and it's annoying.
>>32451702>I thought you liked new people in questsNever forget you are on 4chan where social skills are optional.I think the oath with ice is based on intent. If you only intend to use the ice to keep them from moving, you are solid. If you use it to stab/smother them, the oath will break.
>ShieldYou name something you've always done to protect yourself, you're figuring out more that these words could be considered “command” words and not just the names of the cantrip.>IgnoranceAsserting a newfound revelation to a once useless spell, you find that it begins to draw in magic, forcing it into a hungry void to be annihilated, much like a bone's own spell. The caveat however is that it must be consciously maintained and subverts your own ability to use spells.Possibly an ultimate defense against an enemy nerve, but only allows for your to “turtle.”>DustThe earth whisks away as though it's a vapor, becoming a freeforming solid at your command. The word “Hound” makes it bite down like a savage dog, and “Fiend” makes it detonate.>OrbDust is all and well, but you need a better solid. Concentrating it down, you assemble it into a new orb, increasing the power of “Fiend” when detonated and allowing you to freely control a concussive object.You feel much more resourceful now, and you can feel Luci nodding her approval for you, clapping as she returns to this place to plant a kiss upon your cheek, running her fingers from your chin, only to slide her nail up the other cheek as she passes by.Your eyes follow, unable to look away. “I'm not exactly the best one to teach this, however...”“You can see it in my mind.”She smiles, yes, I know what you're thinking Asher.” Her voice purrs, “The mythical alchemy one would read of in European mythologies. The pursuit of immortality, the creation of artificial life, lead into gold for endless riches. A ridiculous goal that only human trash would aspire to. Rivaling God, it is a preposterous notion...”She crosses her arms, but her smile grows more deep, wicked, and altogether beautiful,”Yet it is that hubris, that rebellion, that will bring human trash to godhood. It is something that I respect and seek to nurture above all else.”
The two of you part from that dark space with a shine of her light, existing once more in the covers of her bed. She pulls you under, and the sheet lights up like a starry night sky amongst the darkness embracing you both.“Your power is the denial of the world's truth to fill it with your own lies.” She whispers a ruby fingernail pressed upon your lips. She opens her hands and the two of you now stand upon her palms, the greater yous looking down as she does so again, and you're standing upon another pair of hands, again and again until there are an endless number of greatest beings looking down upon the two of you, an atom opening up between her hands, electrons whizzing by, the neucleus pulsating and spinning.“The end of this power will be the destruction and reformation of the very building blocks of reality.”Her hands close and you are back under the sheets, only to stand now under a night sky with a breeze carrying through a forest.A star explodes in the distance and freezes, the two of you observing the supernova come closer and closer until it obliterates everything around you.“Destruction is the beginning.”Everything begins to reform, every atom binds itself into molecules, molecules into chemical cocktails, into strands of DNA, The nucleus of a cell, the vacuoles, mitochondria, expanding greater and becoming more numerous. A skeleton forms, muscles, veins, come into fruition. A heart beats and blood pumps, you awaken once more seeing through your own eyes.“With Creation but the next.”You explode again, and she closes her hands.The two of you are back beneath the sheets, and the stars fade, returning to the dark place.
>>32451821I'm high as fuck man.
“And to use this magic, you must control the fabric from which all reason begins.” She drags a fingernail through the darkness and it shifts into several thousand colors, even ones you know not how to name.“It will take much out of you, and yet, it would make you a god.” She lifts her chin, looking down on you once more. A mocking smirk appears upon her features, “A disgusting human that crawls upon the earth, no greater than a worm that crawls through feces and dirt. Can you imagine such blasphemy?”There is no disdain in her voice, no, just the opposite. You can feel the admiration laced around her words.You take her hand and pull it to your face, leaning into it, “And when this disgusting human filth is a god, he will...”> Summon you.> Summon you.> Summon you.> Summon you.
>>32451852I BET THESE ACTUALLY MEAN SOMETHING, BUT WE JUST DON'T KNOW.I'm picking the last one. I got a good feeling about it.
>>32451852>[x] Summon you.
>>32451887Idiot. Stupid choice.>[X] Summon you.Is the real way to go.
>>32451852> Summon you.True End is summon Lucifer. Excellent.
>>32451912Just watch. Fucking Fara will have somehow survived all the way to the end of this and somehow manage to fuck it up.
>>32451924You could have prevented that.You should have listened.
>>32451802>much like a bone's own spellHa. I'm going to choose to interpret this as Asher's subconscious dislike of Bones. I also like to imagine that he walks around occasionally muttering "bones are fucking op" under his breath.
>>32451924>not replacing Asherah with FaraI don't see how this could backfire.
>>32451924Just means we have to kill Fara for good. By killing Helia.
>>32451852> Summon you.> Summon you.> Summon you.> Summon you.Man moding this shit
You know.You guys are pretty swell.I like you guys.
>>32451955well...it's true.also, nerves were fucking up until one raped uskeep in mind we havent been in many fights yet
>>32451852"Well, I think so, Brain, but I can't memorize a whole opera in Yiddish."
>>32451981Like you too, Dranny.
>>32451852>Betray you for ultimate power
>>32451981Dran have you ever read the Golden Bough?
IDEA."Ignorance" eats magic. It's like a Bone's eating thing kinda.Well what do bones do with the magic? They can use it to learn new shit, like how Hunter could have eaten the tear for ice magic.Step one, Ignorance. Step two, Enlightenment.They want to throw magic at us? Fine. We'll steal it from them.
>>32452061FUCKING READ ITwww.sacred-texts.com/pag/frazer/
>>32451924>End of quest.>Asher is super OP>Divine ranks in Summoning and Alchemy>ItIsTime.png>No enemies left>Hot Rod looks nervous.>"Hey man, maybe let's not summon Lucifer">Ignore him>Summon Lucifer>Spaghetti stays firmly in pocket>Hot Rod dumps his 50 saved limit points into his gun arm skill.>Blasts away Lucifer and Asher>Hot Rod quest begins.
“Summon you.” You say with a relaxed sigh, staring into the eyes that a disgusting human maggot like yourself are incapable of looking upon. Yet they hold you there, pitying, disdaining, and revering you all at once.Her hand slides from your cheek, to touch your chin with a nail, forcing you to lean forward at the end of her finger, “Good, now show those others what it takes to crawl to the precipice.”>You have rudimentary understanding of Alchemy...>Alchemy unlocked!“Your body is being moved,” Her gaze holds firm. “I will answer any questions you have before you depart.”>Last chance for more answers. (You are unwilling to ask of what she's done to you at this time.)
>>32452078It was sort of a black hole initially. Why not make it's inverse a kind of white hole?Build up magic from them, and blast it all out.
>>32452103Ask her how King Crimson's powers work.
>>32452127I dont think we have enough time for that
>>32452116Very un-precise and messy.
>>32452103>What's the deal with airline food?But really, see if she has any info on Beliala. Like why she too stronk. Also, any more missions for us? Can we still do shit for Asherah, or are we too far on Luci path?
>>32452116We'd be better off making the bubble ward.>>32452103Who exactly is the Accuser?
>>32452116I didn't mean that at all.I mean to take all the shit they throw at us and learn it.
>>32452275Do you even Jojo?
>>32452296Still only at stardust crusaders.
>>32452275Nothing, it was just a joke.
>>32452275Have you not read JoJo? Really?Jesus Christ stop running and read it now. We can wait.
>>32452103I kind of miss the old sweetly seductive Luci. On the other hand, she seems to be enjoying herself, so why stop her? She's still probably less crazy than half the women in this quest.
>>32452319NO WE CANT
>>32452311>Still only at stardust crusaders.>only at>stardust crusaders.I started not too long ago and got all the way to Jojolion what's taking you so long?
>>32447483>AoPH>not Dead Last Ninja QuestAwww
>>32452376cmon manit's JoJoare you really gonna force him to delay JoJo? For you? How selfish.
>>32452319No, Anon. We cannot wait. Don't joke like that.
>>32452103>You are unwilling to ask of what she's done to you at this time>Implying we wouldn't have done everything exactly the same even with full control.I honestly thought you were just rolling with the fact that we were firmly dedicated to sticking our dick in crazy.
>>32452434we got mind and ass raped. we liked it.
>>32452431The only reason you can't wait is because you're not willing to.
>>32452180I actually would like to know if Luci has more missions for us
Three questions.”“Ask.”“Why was Belialia so strong. She killed the Followers at the orientation that fought her, and I felt sick before her strength. Is she a demon or-”“She is a gifted human that crawled from the door of death like many... However the aether tells me that she is one of the first.”You nod,” So then she has seniority over me... A gap that is hard to close.” Closing your eyes,” The Priest mentioned 'The Accuser.' Who is that?”“The Accuser is one that I've been crossed with before, yet maintained rightful separation from. The devilish hand of god that tests those who bear faith for him. Satan, the true devil as christians refer to it. That priest has given himself to a higher power to exact his revenge. Another futile struggle on his part, for in the end, he too will fall to you. He's already paid with an arm.”Her baleful smile grows more wicked and oppressive, her sapphire eyes dazzling with her beauty despite her foreboding expression, “I feel that he is in a critical condition at this time. I would like you to kill him should you be given the chance.”She places a kiss upon your forehead, “Don't kill yourself though. I couldn't bear the heartache of my filthy mortal dying.” You look down from her eyes and she wraps her arms around you.“Any other questions?”“That answers the third.”“Very well... Now...Return... Visit me again soon...”
>>32452612>my filthy mortalI love the pet names going on here.>Father Assrape in critical condition and missing an arm>We could have killed him had Nora not gotten nommed at the last second.
>>32452612>"my filthy mortal"<3
>>32452671I love that one of the arguments for sending Nora was that they were afraid of Jackie getting killed.
>>32452612>my filthy mortal
>>32452735Even more entertaining because people really wanted to kill Jackie anyway. I honestly think she was the best one to die from the perspective of us recruiting more loyal servants.Plus, on the bright side, we learned that summoning a shit against Bones.
You awaken only to find that you're blindfolded and gagged, a dull aching pain persisting in the back of your head, straining your thoughts as you try to make heads or tail of your situation.Nothing but darkness. You can't see fucking shit.Relaxing a little, and taking a deep breath you try to feel the astral realm, the sight layer to witness something, anything at all.More darkness, with only the faint outlines and pale manifestations of what could be around you. It's like you're cut off from the world in both physical and spiritual senses.You hear a low and dull rumble from the outside, as though you're being moved. Through your third eye, you see the space within light up with someone's awareness, giving you only a glimpse of everything before voltage runs through your restraints, making you piss yourself as you lose your consciousness.Awakening from the haze from what feel like not too long after, you find yourself sitting in a room, cuffed to your chair so tightly that your hands can't even budge a centimeter.There's a bright light filtering down from above nearly blinding you to all else.This is an interrogation room. You've seen it in the movies. Normally there'd be someone talking to you right about now but...An intercom comes on, “Good morning Asher Smith, good to see that you're awake.” A friendly voice comes in, a person. It's devoid of either contempt or irritation. They might as well be a good actor.“Just Asher is fine.” You lean your head back, and find that light in your eyes, so you instead look down.
>>32452889Yea, I thought that the whole "eating it" stuff made that obvious. Oh well, live and learn.
“We've been watching you for a while. Interesting stunts you've pulled recent.”You don't say anything.“Undermining rescue, inciting rebellion, killing people indiscriminately in a church for what your allies call 'ritual awakenings' was it? You've got quite a little track record. Destruction of government and private property's on here too. By all means, you should be on death row.” The voice pauses, as though to await a response.You maintain your silence, saying anything to that might as well be a confession and spitting in the speaker's face. You're a hundred and ten percent guilty but... This man is talking. What's his angle?“It appears you do not know, or you're using your Fifth amendment right. Very American of you.”The voice clears its throat. “You are alive right now because you are in a very precarious position, and we may be able to come to some sort of an arrangement if you are willing to cooperate with us.”> “What's the offer?”(Keep talking)> “No dice, I'm completing my objective.”(Break out.)
>>32452889>summoning a shit against Bones.High-leveled Bones to be exact.
>>32452921>“Just Asher is fine.”Gangsta
>>32452933>[x] “What's the offer?”(Keep talking)
>>32452933>> “No dice, I'm completing my objective.”(Break out.)Fuck off m8, you're a cunt.
>>32452933> “What's the offer?”(Keep talking)Pretty much no chance we'll take it, but you never know...
>>32452933>> “What's the offer?”(Keep talking)
>>32452933> “What's the offer?”(Keep talking)
>>32452935Yeah.>>32452612>however the aether tells me that she is one of the first.That's important. Beliala was a really strong bone.Not all of them can drain that skillfully or regenerate that ridiculously.
“I'm listening.” Though if it isn't something good enough that's all you'll be doing.“First and foremost, I want you to understand, that due to outstanding conditions, you are not permitted a trial by jury of your peers. I am your judge, jury, and the people of my outfit, your executioner.”The voice pauses for confirmation.“I understand.” Saying anything else won't move this along in your favor anyway.“Good. Now, as I have just said, you by all rights should be destined for death, however you are in a position which could be of use to us. We know things that you do not, and you know things that we do not. What's more, you are part of the Follower directed rebellion that has been incited against our very own country.”“I heard of what you people do. Taking people from their homes and families for their gifts.” You spit out the same spiel that Friend had fed you, and pause. “They are winning the war and I wanted to join the right side.”“See, Asher. This is where we can make our arrangement. They have lied to you. The Followers do not fight wars, they start them, and you are part of the rebellion they've begun against America. They do not lied, as I've read in my reports, and they have not lied to you.The wars out there have been started by them, and they've been completing their objectives.Asher, have you been informed of the state of the world in the past month or so since the attack?”“No. I have not.” This guy will only tell you more if you ask.“The world's population has been reduced from seven point two billion in the last year to around six point five million. Between the natural disasters that they've been assumed to conjure, wars incited and their direct involvement in some, we have a death toll estimated around seven hundred million.You are not siding with terrorists Asher, you are siding with a cult centered around war crimes.Do you believe in this, 'Susej?”
>>32453373> "Yes. I haven't met him, but others speak very well of him."> "No, he has died like any other man."> "Let's stay on track, what can you offer me?"
>>32453385>> "Let's stay on track, what can you offer me?""Who knows, who cares?"
>>32453385>> "Let's stay on track, what can you offer me?"
>>32453385>[x] "Let's stay on track, what can you offer me?"
>>32453385> "Let's stay on track, what can you offer me?"The dead are dead, Power is for the living
>>32453385> "Let's stay on track, what can you offer me?"
“Let's stay on track.” You mutter out loud, trying to move your hands a little, just a slight squirm, yet your host seems to notice.“Please stay seated. We can't quite let you enjoy comfort right now. Oh, and something I likely should've said at the start, the use of your magic at this time will be a breach of etiquette, and you will be terminated.”You don't move then, obviously this guy means business. “So what can you offer me?”“You seem to be the pragmatic sort. I can respect that. The offer is thus: You join Overwatch, with a little insurance policy involved. And you receive a full pardon from the US Government, NATO alliance, and protection from the Followers barring when you are deployed.”Sounds like a pretty reasonable offer. Conscription or death. Choices, choices...> Accept, likely the smoothest way you're getting out of this.> Decline. You're getting out now, all you have to do is give the followers a reference point.> (Other)
>>32453668> Accept, likely the smoothest way you're getting out of this.Is Donner still hurting? Can we make that our only condition
>>32453668>[X] Decline. You're getting out now, all you have to do is give the followers a reference point.Fuck da police
>>32453686Donner -is- still hurting.
>>32453668Decline. Working with them under duress isn't worth it, and that insurance policy is probably one of our friends.I really hope it isn't Camille.
>>32453668> Decline. You're getting out now, all you have to do is give the followers a reference point.
>>32453668>> Decline. You're getting out now, all you have to do is give the followers a reference point.I'm gonna decline. I don't know why, but I was hoping that they would have someone who could teach us more powers of something. Not sure why.
>>32453708Bomb in our brain.
>>32453668>>32453708>insurance policyI'd guess implanted remote explosive.And maybe some ritual that does who knows what, like the followers baptism.
>>32453720>I don't know why, but I was hoping that they would have someone who could teach us more powers of something. Not sure why.That would be part of working for them.
>>32453720>>32453796And that is why I accepted, I've always felt that Asher just wanted to get to the top
>>32453668Accept. How else will we become a dog of the military?
>>32453856I'd rather become a Mage King than become a dog of the military.
>>32453856But we're already Lucy's filthy mortal dog
>>32453668>> Accept, likely the smoothest way you're getting out of this.
>>32453668> Decline. You're getting out now, all you have to do is give the followers a reference point.Though their powerful, working under the eye of big brother just doesn't seem our style.
“I'm afraid that I'll have to decline that offer. Not really my cup of tea if you know what I mean.”You hear a chuckle from the other side of the intercom, “Asher, I don't think you understand the gravity of the situation. You are on death row here... Though I can understand your unwillingness to betray your comrades so willingly. However this deal will be off the table should another of you accept. We only need one, and then you're just another ding on the body count as far as your followers are concerned.I've run a background check on you though Asher. You're a pretty smart kid even if you wet yourself in front of the class in second grade. And you held up through the divorce of your parents and the tug-o-war they had over your custody.You graduated high school with average grades while excelling in history and writing, and even went to college to study history, philosophy, with many of your checkouts centered around mythology.We have your records Asher, and I don't believe you to be a bad person, or the product of your broken household or the fact that you haven't called your mother in three years.”The man runs his mouth on and on, but he doesn't say anything of use to you, just bringing up old pains, embarrassed memories, and information that you had thought was private.The voice just drones on and on until finally.“With all that said, I'll be speaking with you later. A friendly reminder that any display of using your powers will be met with lethal actions, and we have appropriate countermeasures to dealing with you as well as a very angry young lady that would like to have a word with you.”The intercom goes dead, and you're left to your own devices.>Well... What now?> Wait for the voice to come back.> Force your way out. (!!!)> (Other)>>32453918
>>32454165> Force your way out. (!!!)Well, had enough of this shit for one day. Let's bounce.
>>32454165> Force your way out. (!!!)
>>32454165> (Other)Yell that it was Michael Malackies fault you wet your self not yours
>>32454230He's gone, Anon.
>>32454165> Force your way out. (!!!)Eh fuck everything about this place. We have a deal with a demon to keep anyways. She IS the better master for this filthy dog to serve anyways.
>>32454217>>32454219Got a plan, or are you just going to blow stuff up until you're free?
>>32454300Blowing stuff up sounds pretty goodWe just got devils grin upgraded.
>>32454300Just blow shit up. Do we look like we care anymore? We DID just sell our soul for ultimate power afterall.
>>32454333>Do we look like we care anymoreWhy wouldn't we care? What's your problem?
>>32454300Use small amounts of flame on our restraints. stick some flames on the hinges and lock of the door. We really have no clue where we are or even what the room looks like so I have no idea how to plan.
>>32454333She'll be mad if you get killed.Don't you want to protect her smile?Or are you such a dirt-eating mongrel that you can't even do that?>>32454377I'll write up a breakdown of your situation.
>>32454409YesWe're a worm in human skin that swims in filth.
>>32454409But Dran this IS how we prove ourselves to her. If we cant escape from a bunch of fuckwitted government agent then why do we deserve the privileges we just got?
The restraints holding your arms down to the chair are firm, feeling almost as though they're affixed tightly enough to come down to the bone of your wrist. It's warm, but doesn't feel acutely metal, like some kind of odd alloy.Perhaps to throw off those with ferrokinesis?Your feet are bound the same. You try even to rock the chair, but it's made of a similar compound and welded into the floor.Doesn't appear as though they wanted you to move.What appears to be an entrance or rather your exit has no doorknob. You can only assume that it unlocks from the outside, or more likely, remotely. You get the sensation that you're being watched, but there's no cameras in the room, at least, not visible ones.That damn bright light is still in your eyes, messing with your vision, and forcing you to keep your head down.A half-blind glance does reveal that there's a vent somewhere around here... but it's too small.Getting out may best be done by waiting...Or oppressive excessive force. Fiend, or maybe even Fiend-Hound, maybe?>What's the plan? No Water, no rocks. Just Air and the potential of fire...
>>32454568Fuck yeah Fiend houndmaybe something smaller on the restraints first though
>>32454568Can we sense anything magical in the room? If not this would be a good time to summon a gremlin.
>>32454635You've got Nora.
>>32454568We need to wait until we're being moved or in a less secure location. Some knowledge of where the other overs are would be nice, that is our mission after all.
>>32454568Wait for the next offer. We gonna die if we try to bust out
>>32454652>You've got Nora.Fiiiiiiine. Summon her.
>>32454652summon her up then
>>32454652Let's summon her.
Saving the vote for summoning Nora...Gettin pretty tired here, and I'm sure the feeling's mutual.Comments, Questions, Concerns.>Good.>Bad.>Weird.
>>32454910>and I'm sure the feeling's mutual.It is actually. Thanks for running, Dran.
>>32454910Cheers Dran, It was good
>>32454910bit annoyed at the last threads outcome, seemed a bit unbalanced.But eh, your games tend to be very gritty and the odds are always stacked against the MC. I just like your writing.
>>32454959I've actually been holding back a bit on clearly unleveled encounters for AoPH, but I figured that for Overhuman the "All is fair in war" thing is a bit bigger of a deal. Not everything sent Asher's way will be on his level. In fact, if Beliala could've prosoloed without the priest, she probably could've killed everyone, but she had her objectives.
>>32455005Don't forget that it feels nice to completely curbstomp some scrubs once in a while, Dran.
>>32455109Gotta stop being a scrub to curbstomp the scrubs.Thought I hear that.Asher's new cantrips are actually pretty efficient. Especially the "transformation" of Devil's grin to Fiend.Pit Fiend is nice too because it focuses explosive damage.
>>32455137>Gotta stop being a scrub to curbstomp the scrubs.WE DIVERSIFIED TO MUCH AND NOW INSTEAD OF BEING GOOD AT ONE THING WE'RE SHITTY AT ALL THINGS
>>32455158Just means you guys have a rougher start and more versatility later.
>>32455174That's how I usually like to play.I'm smart enough to make it work.Problem is all the other voters are just plain ol stupid.
This seems like a good time to apply an Oath to our Pyromancy, it's one of the few tools can make use of in here and getting it to Expert would give us some serious firepower.We could tie it in to our new closeness with Luci, Oath of the Rebel or something like that.
>>32455174I was wondering. Are the numbers of Bones, Veins, and Nerves more or less equal? Or is one more common
The 4 cardinal spells are all "Prime Elementary" and if they're a -mancy instead of a -kinesis, then they're "Advanced Prime Elementary".What would Alchemy be? "Unified Elementary"? Just a "Prime Advanced Elementary"? Some other thing?
>>32454910>GoodNew cantrips are good. Plot twists with Luci were fun. The Overwatch situation seems interesting, even though there's almost certainly no way we'd join up with them (We still need to kill the preacher, if nothing else).>Bad.What will it take to make Luci love us, Dran? What will it take?>Weird.I expected something crazy out of Luci, but more in a sort of gradual manipulation. Obviously its not a big deal for us since we're all aboard the crazy train. Still, it was a bit jarring that Luci dropped everything on us all at once.
