(Sorry. It's been a while.)It took you a while. You had to try and fail multiple times. But you finally managed to talk your way inside Tianna's Immaculate temple without starting a fight.And it was almost harder than the actual fight with that Deled fellow earlier today.At least, after much persuasion, Ragara Yuumei let you in. He's still keeping a bow pointed at you, though. It's hard to act calmly in this circumstance..."Nice to meet you, Ragara Yuumei." you smile pleasantly, inviting him to sit down as well with a nod. He does not seem to have any intention to lower his guard, however."You still didn't say what you want.""Pardon?" You fake surprise."You'r reason for coming here. You just said you wanted to talk. About what?" He asks you, in a tone of voice that expects a straight, immediate answer.You have to weigh your possibilities and say something that won't get you fired at, or kicked out. Something that he'll be willing to talk about, and that will further your goals of at least a little bit...>I want to find a way to avoid violence involving the common people of Tianna.>I want to remind you that Tianna has freedom of religion.>I want to convince you that I'm not a monster.>I want you to leave Tianna.>I just want to get to know you better.>We should get to know each other better.>We should get to know each other better. In bed.
>I want to find a way to avoid violence involving the common people of Tianna.>32728160Oh my god I thought you had died.
>>32728160>We should get to know each other better. In bed.
>>32728160IT LIVES>I want to find a way to avoid violence involving the common people of Tianna.
Rolled 5>>32728160YES YES YESDICE ON
>>32728160>We should get to know each other better. In bed.Is this still the same scene, so popping a charm would make our caste-mark/anima flare? We should just get straight to it, is all I want.
Rolled 3>>32728160>I want to find a way to avoid violence involving the common people of Tianna.I had been getting worriedDon't forget your dice
Rolled 3>>32728160>I want to find a way to avoid violence involving the common people of Tianna.>I want to convince you that I'm not a monster.Diplomacy, Ho!
Rolled 8>>32728160>>I want to find a way to avoid violence involving the common people of Tianna.Appeal to his sense of duty and compassion!We may be inhumanly hot but he's a trained monk.
Rolled 8>>32728160>We should get to know each other better.>I want to convince you that I'm not a monster.The second should follow the first, logically, but still.
Rolled 2>>32728204forgot dice, it's been so long
Rolled 6>>32728227Forgot my dice as well
Rolled 8>>32728267>>32728258Should have stayed forgot with those rolls
Rolled 1>>32728227I think we should still have MRP active
Rolled 10>>32728160So we need something that he'll talk about with us while still leading up to us sleeping with him and the other DB we haven't seen>I want to find a way to avoid violence involving the common people of Tianna..>I want to convince you that I'm not a monster.Something like a mix of these then, we want to make it seem like were talking about the stability of Tianna while also getting him to see us more as a person than some demon
Rolled 3>>32728309I assume we can't use another charm before our cast sign lights up right?
>I wanted to apologize for almost killing compatriot, that Deled fellow
>>32728447Like fuck we want to apologize for that.
Rolled 10>>32728447forgot to roll
>>32728459Of course we don't, but we can SAY we do, because it makes us look like the better person. Plant a seed of "if THIS is the anathema, what the fuck does that say about Deled?"
Rolled 9>>32728160>I want to find a way to avoid violence involving the common people of Tianna.>We should get to know each other better.Also, please let us know when you're gone for more than a week. Even just a "I'm still alive and interested in continuing" is fine. We worry about these things.
Rolled 2>>32728476That general concept is fine, but apologising about Deled is not the right way to go about it.Slapping Deled's shit is not something anyone need apologise for, ever, no matter what they are. Immutable Rule of Creation.
>>32728499Well put it in terms of, "if only there could've been another way to deal with it."Also it's an actual reason to show up now, right after we almost killed one of their members, that isn't "i'm showing up right now because you're basically weaker than you have been for the rest of the time you've been here" which is probably what he'll assume otherwise
>>32728160>I want to remind you that Tianna has freedom of religion.>I want to convince you that I'm not a monster.All working towards>We should get to know each other better. In bed.
Social + Zenith + MRP = 5 3 3 8 8 2 6 8 1 10 3 = successes"...There's been a lot of trouble in Tianna with fights and violence caused by religious differences." You start.Yuumei looks straight at you. "...That's because you're setting up a cult for yourself.""I'm not. The cult of the Sun was already here, it was just minor. I guess it became larger once I Exalted. And well, that's not surprising. Besides, it's the Sun that the cult is worshipping, not me.""You still reap the benefits." He points out."It's not different from how you reap the benefits of your own cult I imagine.""The difference is that one is just and one is evil."You sigh. "Look, I'm not here to talk theology. I'm here because people are getting hurt and I want to avoid that." You smile dryly. "Let's be honest. I know that you'd like nothing better than to remove me, Pyre Spark, and her entire cult from the face of Creation, but you can't, because the laws of Tianna still protect them, and because I also protect them."He sighs, exasperated. "Queen Amata seems quite committed to this line of action, yes." You can tell he must've tried to persuade her to ditch you."So unless we really do solve this with violence, we have to find a way to coexist in Tianna, because I'm not leaving.""I even heard you're building an entire city, consecrated to your dark demon gods or whatever."You feel like pounding your head against the wall. "It's the SUN. It's the OPPOSITE of DARK." You try and keep your cool.This guy is obviously not as much of a violent asshole as Deled was, but he's clearly a very determined believer in the teachings of the Immaculate Faith."But, yes. I guess you're not leaving either.""We have faithful to protect here, and it's our duty to oppose you everywhere you go." He replies."Tianna is on my side, as well as several Exalted. The only way you're getting rid of me is with a war." You point out.(cont.)
Rolled 4>>32728603Argh, talking with religious zealots is making my head hurt
>>32728625Let's be frank as far as immaculates go he's not even a zealot, I mean he's not currently trying to murder us, his beliefs just happen to be INCONVENIENT for us
Rolled 10Weird idea, but has anyone ever tried summoning Lytek and having him testify that Solars aren't agents of hell or whatever Dbs think?
>>32728687Comedy alternative, has anyone tried convincing the immaculates that sidereals exist and are ALSO anathema? that would clear up the immaculate problem pretty quick
>>32728687Lytek is in charge of Celestial Exaltations. Some one else (The god of inherited power) is in charge of Terrestrial. The two don't like each other very much, as discussed in the Alchemical book.
"You're holding the entire island hostage, and you still deny being a monster?""I'm not holding anyone hostage any more than you are. I'm just saying. DO you WANT a war?"He sighs. "...Regardless of how much I want it or don't want it, the Realm is not going to stage large overseas operations unless you prove an immediate threat to our interests, or unless a Great House believes they have much to gain by your defeat. Which will happen soon enough, I hope." He sounds quite frustrated with the current situation."But for now, all the Realm will do is send people like you and Deled." You smile. "Now, let's put it this way: Everyone's eyes will be on you after today's fight. You will not be free to act as you please. Amata tolerates your presence on her island, but if you keep causing trouble to her she might well decide to kick you out.""That's unthinkable. Who will protect her from you, then?"You chuckle "At that point, it will be me to protect her from you. Because you will be the problem."He looks like he has trouble grasping the concept."What I'm saying is, if you want to stay on Tianna at all, you need to stop causing trouble to us." You explain succinctly.He lets out a long sigh and puts his bow down. "...I hate you. I can't understand what kind of sorcery you used to gain Amata's trust and affection to such a degree.">(Just smile smugly.)>The power of love.>We had our fights, but we've grown to trust each other over time.>It's just mutually beneficial, I need her as much as she needs me.>I'm really, really good in bed.>(other?)
Rolled 4>>32728723If the god of Celestial Exaltions tells you "this person's Exaltion is free of Infernal Taint" or something, then you better believe him because he would know.
>>32728758>>(Just smile smugly.)
>>32728758>The power of love.Maka is love.
Rolled 10>>32728758>I'm really, really good in bed.

Rolled 9>>32728758>The power of love, and hard-earned mutual trust.>Also really good in bed.
Rolled 3>>32728758>The power of love.
Rolled 4>>32728758> The power of loveWe were well acquainted pre exaltation.
Rolled 10>>32728758>>It's just mutually beneficial, I need her as much as she needs me."My dead Yuumei, you're not going to convince her of anything if you can't recognize that someone who DOESN'T already share your beliefs is going to find it hard NOT to trust someone who saved them from deathlords."
Rolled 9>>32728758>The power of love.>I'm really, really good in bed.Like super good
>>32728758>>The power of love.Hell yes we are doing thisalso>I'm really, really good in bed.

Rolled 10>>32728827>"My dead Yuumei,You probably meant dear, but that's still a great... what ever the typing equivalent of a Freudian Slip is.
Rolled 3>>32728758>The power of love.>I'm really, really good in bed.>I can show you if you want.
>>32728876I did, but yeah, that's pretty great (freudian typo?)
Social + Zenith + MRP = 4 10 4 10 2 2 10 9 3 4 10 = 9 successes"The power of love." You reply, with an absolutely straight face.He stares back at you, unimpressed at first, until it slowly dawns on him that you're being serious."Also, the fact that I'm really good in bed." You add, this time allowing yourself a smile."I can imagine that." He replies. "With that kind of l-lewd body...""Oh, you mean this?" You slowly pull your tabard sideways, causing him to emit a really weird, surprised sound. "...You want to touch?">Seduce him aggressively>Seduce him gently>Just flirt briefly to keep his guard down, but keep the discussion going>You don't need to seduce him, just keep trying to make him reason.

Rolled 1The moment we start to make progress, we get shit rolls
Rolled 5>>32728967>Seduce him gently"'that lewd body'? where's that famous dynast decadence?"
Rolled 8>>32728967>Seduce him gentlyIt's working!So who was the last one we had to seduce? There were two, right?
Rolled 4>>32728967>Just flirt briefly to keep his guard down, but keep the discussion goingNo need to go too hard at it.
Rolled 4>>32729028I think he's at Amata's palace
Rolled 9>>32728967>>Just flirt briefly to keep his guard down, but keep the discussion going
>>32729041Wasn't it a woman? I seem to vaguely remember that.
Rolled 1>>32729061Eh, a woman is fine too.
Rolled 6>>32728967>Seduce him gentlyWords have failed, usr your body instead
Rolled 1>>32728967>Seduce him gently to keep his guard down, but keep the discussion goingBedroom diplomacy.
Rolled 4>>32728967>Just flirt briefly to keep his guard down, but keep the discussion goingI'm still for seducing him, but I think it's gonna need a little more work before we can do it.
Rolled 7>>32729072Dice have failed us, more like.
Rolled 2>>32728967>Just flirt briefly to keep his guard down, but keep the discussion goingJust a bit more before we really get him into bed
>>32728967>Just flirt briefly to keep his guard down, but keep the discussion going
>>32728603Sorry, I know I'm a little late to the game, but why is that 3 successes instead of 5? 8, 8, 8 & 10, right?
Rolled 4>>32729178I vote those two successes be applied to this set of rolls or we're probably gonna lose the progress we just made.
Rolled 10>>32729178It is 5, he just didn't write the 5.
>>32729193Ok, fair enough I guess.
"I- I don't want to t-t-touch.""Are you sure?" Your smile widens as you stand up from the chair, almost threateningly."...D-don't come any closer." he also stands up, stepping back defensively."It's just innocent fun.""Th- that face you have is anything but innocent, you succubus! Y-you're going to eat my soul like you did with Amata!""I don't eat souls, don't be silly." He's with his back against the wall, and you close in slowly, non-threateningly, but without breaking eye contact, staring him down. "Though I might just eat you up in a different sense...""STAY AWAY FROM ME!"You stop inches from pressing your body against his, put your tabard back straight, and sit back down calmly.The look of astonished shock mixed with disappointment on his face is amazing."...What?" You ask, innocently. "I did as you told me."He stumbles back to his chair and collapses on it."I thought you wanted to see why Amata has... well, nevermind." You smile coyly. "So, are you going to rein in your own people and make sure that there's no more trouble in the streets?"He's close to the breaking point. Teeth and fists clenched, almost shaking. Immaculate monks must abstain from sexual contact. Now you wonder how long it's been for him. Or maybe he's completely virgin? He doesn't seem completely clueless, though..."Alright." He stands up from the chair, which topples and falls down loudly. "I'm... I'll leave Tianna tomorrow. Just... go. Go away now.""Good." You grin."I'll come back!""I'll be waiting~""With... with reinforcements!""Oh, going to bring friends?" You smile. "How many? I've taken up to thirty at once, but I could always try and improve my record~."He just stares at you empty-eyed for like ten seconds, before picking back up the bow. "...Leave.">Alright, I'll go. See you!>I want to tell you something first. (what?)>Don't you want to spend the night with me?~>Actually I was thinking about waiting for your friend as well.>(other)
Rolled 3>>32729257>>Alright, I'll go. See you!Let's not push too hard. That's two down, we can take the last one independently.We should go giggle about this with Amata.
Rolled 7>>32729257>Alright, I'll go. See you!A lot of good work done.Now to get the second one.
Rolled 5>>32729257I just have to sayThis whole encounter with him has been brilliant.Well done.
Rolled 1>>32729257>>Alright, I'll go. See you!
Rolled 6>>32729257>>Alright, I'll go. See you!we should ease up, he's gonna try piercing Maka and not in a fun way
Rolled 8>>32729257>Don't you want to spend the night with me?~
>>32729257>Don't you want to spend the night with me?~
>>32729257>Actually I was thinking about waiting for your friend as well.We might find out where the other one is at least.
Ugh, we really need to not push so hard with the next one
Rolled 1>>32729257>Alright, I'll go. See you!
Rolled 3>>32729257>I want to tell you something first. (what?)I really do care about Tiannaand her people, I don't have any villainous plans to take over Creation or anything
Rolled 1>>32729316Think he'll get as hard when we push?
Rolled 8>>32729257>"Alright, alright. But before I go we should set up some sort of arrangement to contact each other in case our respective followers get out of hand. I'd rather not take an arrow to the face if I come to you to peacefully settle a matter of my people being harassed by yours."
Rolled 8>>32729332>>32729322>>32729320>>32729317>>32729303>>32729295>>32729293>>32729276Thank Sol this isn't an important roll.
Rolled 1>>32729257>Actually I was thinking about waiting for your friend as well.>Don't you want to spend the night with me?~
>>32729345It might be. He could still decide to shoot us in the back when we leave.
Rolled 1>>32729336oooh, this is good
Rolled 5>>32729345We really should buy TGP soonHTH first though
Rolled 8>>32729257>Alright, I'll go. See you~
Rolled 10>>32729345I bet the dude IS a virgin because the pattern spiders make all attempts at changing that roll ones. He sees evil in the divine because fate says he never gets laid
Rolled 3>>32729257>Actually I was thinking about waiting for your friend as well.>Don't you want to spend the night with me?~
Rolled 8>>32729257>>Don't you want to spend the night with me?~Bad news, we probably won't sleep with himGood news, the wyld hunt won't come after us a long as we don't cause trouble for the RealmMore bad news, we probably will
>>32729408>Divine virginHe's like Maka's arch-nemesis or something!
Rolled 1>>32729427>>32729408If Maka does sleep with him it needs to be the Gentlest, happiest, friendliest sex he'll ever have.Poor Guy needs a goddamn break.
>Don't you want to spend the night with me?~Bang him like there's no tomorrow.
Rolled 2>>32729257>Don't you want to spend the night with me?~
>>32729293>>32729320>>32729363>>32729412>>32729459>>32729486Dice gods STRONGLY disapprove of this guy getting any.
Rolled 7>>32729513Now we know who really needs a Wyld Hunt called on them.
>>32729552The pattern spiders?
Rolled 5>>32729580I was implying the god of /tg/s dice roller, but if you think we can get enough Dragoon-Bloods into Yu-Shan then why not?
Rolled 7>>32729257Is there an option for a teasing exit? Something like "Your loss." or "Maybe next time then?" Because we should leave so as not to provoke him, but we want to make sure out temptation is stuck firmly in his head once we're gone.(just woke up, so sorry if I'm failing at innuendo)
>>32729595You know, I can't think of one reason.
"...Oh, but I thought I'd spend the night with you..." You reply."Don- don't even joke about it. There's no way I would...""No way?" You ask back."N-no way.""Sounds like there's a way." You smile, standing back up."...I can't, so go away.""So the problem isn't that you don't want to, but that you think you're not allowed to.""I AM not allowed to." He replies, defensively.You press yourself against him. "Then If I force you to do it, It's alright." you whisper in his ear."WHAT KIND OF LOGIC IS THAT""Ssshh. It's alright, isn't it? You're going to learn what secret arts I used to win Amata's heart." You put a finger on his lips, gently pushing him back against a wall. "And in exchange, you'll leave Tianna to me.""I... I can't..." He's practically trembling now."You don't have any choice."He closes his eyes. "...I already told you. I'm leaving. You win. I'm going back to the Realm. Why are you doing this? What do you want?">Claim you were just teasing him, leave.>Unfasten his armor, go all the way.>Wait for his decision to either accept you or throw you out.>(other)
Rolled 2>>32728160Didn't we buy HSDD? I'm pretty sure we did. I only ask because if it was on our sheet some people might be voting differently.

Rolled 9>>32729627>Apologize and leaveOk, with how our suggestions are being interpreted we are seriously being influenced by the Curse now guys. Time to back off.
Rolled 2>>32729627Tell him that we don't want him gone. We want to make peace with him.Then unfasten his stuff.
>>32729627>Wait for his decision to either accept you or throw you out.
Rolled 6>>32729627While still unbuckling his armour:"You said you can't. Tell me your reason?"Poor guy might have someone he's pining for.
Rolled 8>>32729627>Unfasten his armor, go all the way.>>32729693It's religious reasons
>>32729635We did, we're way more beat up, I think were down to 2 Health levels and we also have HSDD>>32729627>>Unfasten his armor, go all the way.We don't really want him gone though, we want him here helping us, protecting his flock from the big bad Solar

>>32729635...Damnit, I didn't write it? yes, you have it. Sorry, I messed up.
Rolled 1>>32729627>Unfasten his armor, go all the way.We bought HSDD, let's put it to use
Rolled 2>>32729627>What do you want?"You. At least for a night. There's something so alluring about a man that has so much restraint and wields such a ~big~ bow..."
Rolled 7>>32729627>Unfasten his armor, go all the way.Amata told us to seduce him, not scare him away
>>32729627...we're going to end up with that immaculate that was spying on us walking in on us fucking his buddy, aren't we?
>>32729681I'm with this dude, this is closing in on 100 person orgy in the streets levels of cursed behavior, the dude is begging us to stop but our glorious solar cock powers are making it difficult
Rolled 3I will laugh if the monk's friend shows up in the middle of sexytimes.
Rolled 9>>32729681>>32729744Except this the, the PLAN was to seduce them, possibly against their will.
>>32729744seriously y'all this be rape
>>32729257>"Th- that face you have is anything but innocent, you succubus!I can only imagine Maka's face at this moment
>>32729756There's more to seduction that giving a quick lay Anon. It's about establishing that they can trust us. Can you trust a demon that raped you and probably mind mojo'd you to do it?
>>32729761Nah he can stop us anytime he wants to, this is more like roleplay rape, he pretends he doesn't want it and then the horrible Anathema has her way with him
>>32729797except we have social charms active
Rolled 10>>32729816A dice adder, the equivalent of an excellency, it doesn't make him do anything it just makes us better at what we're already good at
Oh no! It's happening again...Or is it 'lack of happening again.
Rolled 9>>32729627>Claim you were just teasing him, leave.I'm probably too late to stop the rape
>>32729825not to make this into something like a UMI argument, but the dude clearly is being influenced to do something he will regret regarding his faith, honour and his personal opinion of himself
Rolled 1>>32729868Yes, us and our 9 NATURAL successes here.>>32728967
>>32729873well hey if the dice gods say rape the dude...
"What I want..." You pull on the strings of his armor and begin to unfasten it, metal plates hitting the floor one after another. "...Is inside here.""You ARE crazy." He protests, but doesn't make an attempt to stop you."You're wearing armor around your head too, Yuumei.""I... what?""Everything I say, every argument I make just bounces off you. You barely listened to me all this time. I couldn't get through to you." You explain, wrestling his breastplate off. In the struggle, you both end up on the ground as well, you on top, as you tear off his armor bit by bit, piece by piece. "You need to let go of this armor, or we're never going to understand each other.""YOU'RE CONFUSING YOUR METAPHORS AND REALITY" he protests as you rip his kimono open. You must admit that you're liking what you're seeing. He's covered in light scars that give him a tough look, and despite his slightly feminine face and figure he's definitely manly, slender but athletic and well-muscled."I might be." You admit. "Metaphors have never been my forte. But you seem a lot more honest now that there isn't all that steel between us.""I, I..." He looks like he's about to cry, and that makes it even harder for you to stop......when, suddenly, you hear it: a low, barely audible whistle coming from outside.That was definitely Five Tails warning you of something. Probably of the other immaculate returning to the temple.>Leave. Quickly.>Steal a kiss and leave.>Ask Five Tails to stall him.>Continue like nothing's happening.
Rolled 2>>32729868>the dude clearly is being influencedI mean he is I guess, but there's no actual mind magic involved, it's a man being seduced by an incredibly sexy woman, Maka is just that hot, she's making a monk waiverI also don't really care if he betrays his faith, since his faith says kill all Solars
Rolled 1>>32729904>Steal a kiss and leave.FUCKING... what the female equivalent of a cock bolck?
Rolled 1>>32729904>>Steal a kiss and leave.
Rolled 2>>32729904>Steal a kiss and leave.I hope we can continue this another time, I really do want to get to know you better
Rolled 8>>32729904>"I, I..." He looks like he's about to cry, and that makes it even harder for you to stop...Oh Maka how I love you
Rolled 2>>32729904>Steal a kiss and leave.
Rolled 5>>32729904>>Steal a kiss and leave."Looks like we'll have to continue our discussion another time~."
Rolled 1>>32729904>Steal a kiss and leave.>Maybe next time.~
>>32729926Well, at least we aren't crit failing this. I think.
Rolled 2>>32729904>Steal a kiss and leave
Rolled 8>>32729906>>32729920>>32729921>>32729922>>32729926>>32729933>>32729936>>32729943>>32729952Dice gods don't like us leaving this unfinished. They wanted their sexy Maka time.
>>32729906His faith says kill all demons, but the divine bureaucracy is being run by assholes who hand out wrong info. Also its more like being seduced by the traditional fae (non exalted) as Maka is beyond human in appearance and using MRP
Rolled 9>>32729904>Steal a kiss and leave.Wow, it was a good idea to put Five Tails outside the temple. I remember thinking that it would have been better to send her to the docks. Because I can imagine Deled deciding to smash our ships out before he leaves....He still might do that.
It's happening again...
>>32730003Oh shit our pirates are down there too. Hopefully they keep their heads down if he goes nuts.
Rolled 6>>32729904>Steal a kiss and leave.Being caught would be bad.
>>32729904>Steal a kiss and leave.Try to exit smoothly at least, not like we are running away.
>>32729973The dice gods need a better way to communicate with us. How are we supposed to please them if they only show their displeasure after the fact.
>>32729973Dice gods fucking hated making moves on this guy 2 votes ago, and were ambivalent bordering disapproving last vote. I'm pretty sure they just don't like the guy full stop.
Rolled 7>>32730062They did have fun watching us fight DeledI bet the Immaculates beat them up at some point and took all their prayer away
Rolled 8>>32729904>Ask Five Tails to stall him.
"...Seem we'll have to do this another time." You lean in and steal a kiss from him."...huh?" He mumbles, surprised."Gotta leave." You wink at him, and get back up.And then you almost get choked when he grabs your tabard and gives it a hard tug, pulling you back to the ground."...What?!" You finally manage to mouth, struggling free of the piece of cloth and leaving it in his hands."You're leaving me like this?" He complains. "After all you've done to me?""I... yes? I thought that-" You're cut short as he grabs you by the shoulders and drags you down to the floor. "Oh, no, you're not getting away this easily.""...What?!" You repeat. "I, I need to leave, It's-""Need to, or want to?" He turns the tables on your previous argument."You're being unreasonable!""YOU are being unreasonable!"That's about when the door slams open.You both turn to face it. Half-naked, twisted in a tangle of your own armor and clothes.A tall, powerfully-built woman is standing there, muscular and broad-shouldered, with blonde hair pulled behind her head in an effort to keep it clear of her eyes and not much more. She's wearing a simple light kimono and padded gloves around her closed fists, that look more like battering rams than anything else.Behind her, slightly hidden by the shadows but still visible to you, you see Five Tails, She seems equal parts horrified and amused."...A- Aeka?" Yuumei mumbles.She sighs. "...Alright. Who is raping who, exactly?" She asks.>I'm raping Yuumei.>I'm being raped by Yuumei.>We were raping each other.>It's... complicated.>Even if I told you you probably wouldn't believe it.>Want to join?>I was just about to leave, excuse me.>(make a run for it)>(other)
Rolled 8>>32730175>We were raping each other.>It's... complicated.
>>32730175Forgot to say, i did keep track of your (terrible) roll but forgot to include it in the post itself. Just to be clear.
Rolled 7>>32730175"I may have teased him too much. I definitely teased him too much. Though he's kinda hot once he finally gets assertive...."
Rolled 5>>32730175>We were raping each other.>It's... complicated.
Rolled 1>>32730175Wow, we ended up being TOO successful>We were raping each other.
Rolled 5>>32730175>I'm not sure, it was clearer a moment ago>>32730199Yes this is also goodMaka does like being bottom after all
Rolled 5>>32730175>I'm not sure, it was clearer a moment ago>I think we're raping each other.
Rolled 5>>32730175>We were raping each other.
Rolled 6>>32730175"There's nothing wrong with a little role play to spice things up."
Rolled 7>>32730175>We were raping each other.>It's... complicated.Also dice need to get it together.
Rolled 4>>32730186i'm a little scared of what a botch would have been
Rolled 5>>32730308Probably she wouldn't have needed to ask who was raping who. Either we fail to curtail our lust, or he overpowers us long enough to begin the rape himself.
Rolled 7>>32730330>he overpowers us long enough to begin the rape himself.I would really have liked if that had happened
>>32730336But then Tia would have had to 'deal' with him, and we'd have a Wyld Hunt on our hands.
"...We were raping each other." You explain. "It's a bit complicated.""Wait, no! What's not how it is!" Yuumei replies."I thought you'd consider it in bad taste to have sex with a Solar of all people." She says, looking quite unimpressed."I'm not! She forced me!""You're straddling over her, naked, and with both hands on her breasts." She points out. "I'm not judging you, Yuumei. I'm just surprised.""That's- that's not-""Well, she did defeat Deled, something for which I think she deserves a medal - Good job, by the way...""Thank you." you nod, grabbing Yuumei's hands and keeping them there."...And I guess you just got defeated as well, Yuumei. Not quite in the same way, but hey, at least you're enjoying it more than Deled did." She sighs again. "...By the way, yeah, Amata is pretty adamant about the whole deal. I think it's best if we cut our losses and just go back home now.""Yes! So help me out here, Aeka!" He says, struggling to get out of your hold."Oh, alright." She replies, sounding slightly annoyed, unfastening the belt tying the kimono around her waist and taking her gloves off. "Lets double-team her, maybe that way we'll have a chance.""NOT THAT KIND OF HELP!"(cont)
Rolled 3>>32730376>"Lets double-team her, maybe that way we'll have a chance."Oh no this is not what we wantyay
Rolled 4>>32730376>"NOT THAT KIND OF HELP!"EXACTLY THAT KIND OF HELPhe'll need it
Rolled 5>>32730376>Oh no, the big bad Wyld Hunt is coming after poor little me, how will I survive?Little do they know we play this game all the time with the Royal Family.
>>32730376See, Aeka knows where it's at. Why you gotta be such a waffler, Yuumei? Stop waffling.
Rolled 4>>32730400>Wyld Hunt RoleplayI can totally see them doing that
Rolled 2>>32730400>>32730417This is why we need a Sidereal, otherwise we could never realistically incorporate Tia into our hot Wyld HuntxAnathema Roleplay.
Rolled 5>>32730376>Lets double-team herthat's totally unfair. You won't have a chance with just two of you
Rolled 3>>32730441For a more accurate Wyld Hunt we would need a group of mortals to mote tap us first and then the DBs and Sidereal come to finish the jobThis is the only real way to satisfy MakaShe's thought about it
Rolled 1Poor Five Tails, she's the true loser in all this.
Rolled 2>>32730470Bah, she gets a good watch.Sneaking around like that she's probably got a voyeur fetish anyway.
>>32728160>get home from work>check twitter>new EQ threadfucking awesome day
Rolled 5>>32730400>>32730417Oh yeah, this is happening.
Rolled 7>>32730479We should have fun with her sometime. When she's more amenable to Maka's advances.
Rolled 1>>32730493Well, she's Mikhail's mate, so maka should totally teach her a ton of tricks to use on him.Perhaps even demonstrating on mikhail.
So someone posted this in the Exalted General thread awhile back, and I wanted to share it here. I almost forgot about it though since I saved it about a week ago.http://pastebin.com/zyYi58uXSeems like something Tia would want us too learn. Maybe Irene too.
>>32730212>Maka does like being bottom after allEh, it seems to vary. Though she does seem to like to tease boys until they seize control. Tia's this weird competition thing. Mortals and silk are our toys, as is everone's favorite volcano god.
....maybe, just maybe, you use that twitter of yours to say where or not you will post.if you say that you won't make it this week we'll understand. It's REALLY annoying to come here every minute of everyday to see if this is up.again, Please Use Your Twitter for updates and schedule ALREADY !
Rolled 6>>32730586Quest addiction is a hell of a drug!I had the jitters too, bro.
>>32730580>everyone's favorite volcano god.Man it's gonna be funny when Maka finds out that Valeriana a dom
>>32730575Seems like something Maka would want to learn. She's very proud of her... assets but also seems to have an interest in making them bigger.>>32730586>>32730620I dread what will happen when he gets his internship. Was that a confirmed thing, or just a possibility.
Soc + Zen + MRP = 8 7 5 1 5 5 5 6 7 4 5 = 3 successes[hours pass]"...You're making it really hard to leave Tianna now." Aeka exhales a long, drawn-out breath."I lost count at thirty, and you're still hungry for more?" You grin, stretching your muscles left and right."You're not even tired." Yuumei mumbles a reply. "You ARE a monster.""If we had time, I'm confident I could go for five or ten hundred more." You say, enjoying for a moment the look of startled horror on both of your victims. "But for now, I think I'll take my leave. It would trouble you people a lot if you were caught in bed with me, right?""This isn't even a bed." Yuumei complains, trying to sit upright, but his strength fails him halfway and he just drops back onto the floor."Figure of speech." you toss a blanket over the two of them, spending the next few seconds looking at the cloth drop on them and suggestively adhering to the masses and shapes of their sweat-drenched bodies underneath. "So, we have a deal?"Aeka is staring at the ceiling. "...I'm not sure it's any sort of deal, what you got out of us. Isn't this just a surrender?""Now I understand why Master expelled you from the Order." Yuumei mumbles."I thought we agreed to no longer talk about that." She replies."What are we going to tell when we get back home?""...The truth." You smile. "That Queen Amata doesn't want religious unrest and has come out in support of the Solar Exalted, or at least of this particular Solar Exalted, but without banning the Immaculate Cult from her lands because she still believes in religious freedom.""Just... don't tell anyone about tonight." Aeka asks."Only to my wife and husband. They know how to keep secrets, don't worry." You smile, and leap out of the window.(cont.)
Rolled 6>>32730641Well that went well.
>>32730641Well.Everything went better than expected
>>32730641That, from 3 successes.
>>32730722And HSDD, which is an extra 3 I think.
Rolled 4>>32730737Sort of. I think rather than giving us extra dice it enhances the result.So if we fail, we fail, but if we succeed naturally, it enhances the effect of the success.
Now you can stop putting on a confident face. Yuumei was assertive, but overall gentle... but Aeka was like a raging bull on steroids, made of marble. She really wore you out and most of your wounds hurt like hell. Some might have even reopened. You stumble in the first rays of dawn and, as you try and keep your footing, feel yourself being helped by Five Tails, appearing next to you."...Oh, thank you." You mumble, looking at her.She blushes and looks away."...What?" You smile."That was... educational.""I can teach you some tricks for use with Mikahil later." You suggest."Th-that's not what I...""...Though since you're a Lunar it might be best if we wait until Tia's here too. She can do some really crazy things... Anyway..."She brings a hand up, revealing a smear of blood."...yeah, thought so.""...Your wounds." Without wasting other time, she just loads you on her shoulders. "Hold tight."Still feeling groggy from the pain and the tiredness, you react slowly and sluggishly. "What are you dooOOOOOING" is your startled reply, as Five Tails takes to the air, leaping up easily thirty meters and landing on a roof on the other side of the road."I told you to hold tight." She warns you, as she jumps around city from roof to roof with amazing ease. You finally land on the castle's roof and are dragged, by her, to the infirmary."...Now here's a place I haven't seen in a while." You joke, letting yourself fall asleep as soon as you touch the bed.>>32730586Like I already said in other threads, I can't plan my threads ahead. I usually open one of these as soon as I know that there's a good chance I'll have a full free day to spend in front of the PC.
Rolled 2>>32730769Oh yeah, we were beat up weren't we
>>32730769By the way, about >>32730638's question, what's the status of your internship?
>>32730769Oh, minor question. Tianna has a city god, but does the nation of Tianna have a god for it? Or did it used to be so small that they never bothered.
>>32730769and like I said the day before you could say that your ready to make a thread. If not than you can inform us that you can't so we won't search /tg/ every minute for it...long story short please just tell us if you can or can't run a thread.
Aaawww yeah, exalted quest! Nothng better to wake up to than this!
>>32730789>>32730638It's confirmed, I will be in England for July and August. I have no idea if I'll be able to make threads there, but I probably won't.>>32730810If I can make a thread... I make a thread. And no, I'm not going to make a post every day on twitter just to say "can't make a thread today", because often the days i can't make threads are days i don't actually have any kind of internet access.I make these threads as a hobby and to waste some time having fun. That's it.>>32730809No, mostly because Tianna has been, up to now, mostly a city-state.(continuing)You wake up some time later, feeling fresh and rested. Yawning and stretching, you step out of the bed and notice your maid, Millian, who was dozing off, but now blinking awake. "Milady Maka! Are you fine?""...I'm feeling a bit better, yes." You weren't kidding on the five or ten thousand more, but you try and keep your instincts under control.You still feel some pain where you were hit during the fight, but at least it looks like your wounds are healing. "...How are things going in town?" You ask her. "It seems the Immaculate's ship will set sail tomorrow. They told their people to keep the faith strong, but also to respect Tianna's laws and not act violently.""That's something, I guess.">Rest until healed>Meet Amata>Meet Samiel>Meet Irene>Meet Five Tails>Meet Pyre Spark>Travel back to Pearl>(Other?)
>>32730929>Rest until healedStuff can wait.
Rolled 6>>32730929>Meet Amata
>>32730929>Meet AmataWe should talk to her about the successful plan. And show her our wounds then ask her to kiss them better.
Rolled 10>>32730929>Meet Amata
Rolled 6>>32730929>Rest until healedWe can meet with people while we rest anyway so let's kill two demon birds with one GLORIOUS SOLAR ROCK.
>>32730929>Meet Pyre SparkWe should probably tell her she did good. And after that,>Meet Amata
Rolled 7>>32730929>Rest until healed
Rolled 7>>32730929>I have no idea if I'll be able to make threads there, but I probably won't.Ah that's depressing>Meet AmataMaybe we'll be able to catch her meeting up with Mikahil
Rolled 6>>32730929>It's confirmed, I will be in England for July and August. I have no idea if I'll be able to make threads there, but I probably won't.:(, well heres hoping you can, England is shitty but not that shitty, good luck with it and keep us updated please.>Meet Amata
>>32730929>Meet Amata>Meet Samiel>Meet IreneLet'd talk with the wife and... I don't want to say kids because that makes it creepy when we sleep whith them, and Irene is probably older than us anyway.
Rolled 6>>32730929>Meet Five Tails
Rolled 1>>32730971>not wanting Samiel and Irene to call us momI'm hoping they do, not even because I think it's hot, it makes my heart flutter
>>32730971>>32730985Doesn't Amata still have like 3 kids we haven't met?
Rolled 6>>32731001I remember at least two, one was a priestess for the city god and the other was some city official
Rolled 10>>32731001I think so, but they're not exalted.Still, since we're going to be their new othermom, we should probably meet them sometime.
>>32730929>Meet Pyre SparkI just realized that we never bothered to set any dogma other than worship the sun. Which, while a good idea, doesn't a religion make
>>32730929>Meet Amata>Meet Samiel>Meet IreneFamily TimeAnd by that I probably don't mean sex
>>32728603>"It's the SUN. It's the OPPOSITE of DARK."We're so cute when we're pissed off.
>>32731011She's been doing this a lot longer than we've been around, if anything it would be her filling us in on the other aspects of Sun worship, other than "4 Prayers a day at Dawn, Noon, Sunset, and Midnight" and make it lewd
>>32731042We're also the high priest of the sun. Its our job to fill in the other aspects, because absent the UCS saying something directly, we're the final authority on what Praising the Sun involves. And what philosophy we want to have surrounding it.
>>32731088Yes, but Pyre has more experience Praising the Sun than us (unless were a Sun worshiper in Gem, but I don't think that's likely). So while we may outrank her, it still would be a good idea to hear what she had to say on the matter.
Rolled 6Don't get me wrong, all this happy Lewd time is fun, but I think it's important to make sure Maka doesn't end up like The Lover Clad In The Raiment Of Tears. It's all fun and games until someone organizes an insane, never ending, amputee monk orgy.
You send your maid to go and call Amata for you, and she arrives a couple minutes later, right away."Good to see you woke up. Are you fine?" She asks. She doesn't seem too worried about you, but that's probably because by now she knows how sturdy you are."Yeah. I assume Five Tails told you everything?""With details." She grins.Millian looks back and forth between you, missing the subtext. Blessed innocence."Well." She sits on the edge of your bad and takes your hand in hand. "It seems like we've solved this crisis. Last I heard, the Manse's construction is proceeding and Tia is getting busy in the Three Rivers.""When do you think we'll be able to attack the Lintha and drive them away?""First we need to find out the whereabouts of the Black Atoll." She points out. "Otherwise we're not going to gain anything from the battle. We need to strike there."You nod. "Any idea how to do that?""I was thinking to give the mission to Mikahil, Fivetails, and Zaan. He's good at intelligence gathering, she's good at working with him, and he's an expert in anything concerning the sea. But we have another problem.""What?" You're not sure you're going to like this."...Are we going to just hope that the Abyssals don't strike while we're busy with the Lintha?""...That's improbable, huh?"She nods. "...We need to make sure.">We need to be ready to repel an attack from then even while our forces are busy against the Lintha>We need to defeat or delay the Abyssals first.>We need to distract the Abyssals while we strike the Lintha.>We need to make a truce with the Abyssals.>We should strike the Lintha as quickly as possible and hope the Abyssals can't act in time.
Rolled 5>>32731150I figure we can realize when we've gone too far when EF begins adding options like "Maim them so they cannot escape your chambers" to the list.
Rolled 5>>32731167>>We need to defeat or delay the Abyssals first.>>We need to distract the Abyssals while we strike the Lintha.one of those, I think
Rolled 4>>32731167>We need to distract the Abyssals while we strike the Lintha.
Rolled 1>>32731167>We need to distract the Abyssals while we strike the Lintha.
>>32731088>We're also the high priest of the sun. Its our job to fill in the other aspects, because absent the UCS saying something directly, we're the final authority on what Praising the Sun involves. And what philosophy we want to have surrounding it.Completely true.The last time the Sun had a major formal religion surrounding it, it was basically invented wholecloth by the Solar Exalted. It was primarily based around trying to earn the Sun's blessings, and consecrating works and locations in His name.The form for Sun worship that existed prior to that was heavy Aztec-influenced, back during the days of the Dragon Kings - honor duels, sacrifices of living hearts, and other worship. It was primarily based around making sure the sun was given the right power (worship, sacrifice) to make sure he had all the resources he needed to keep reality working right.Maka, if anything, likely comes from a tradition of worshiping the volcano deities around Gem as a form of bribery to keep the goods flowing and keep the volcanoes from exploding.>>32731136>Yes, but Pyre has more experience Praising the Sun than us (unless were a Sun worshiper in Gem, but I don't think that's likely). So while we may outrank her, it still would be a good idea to hear what she had to say on the matter.This is also true. May as well get her input on all this.
Rolled 5>>32731167>We need to distract the Abyssals while we strike the Lintha.This might be the time to talk to Phoenix if he's still hiding in the city
>>32731136Well yes, we listen to her obviously. Do realize though that the picture most mortals have of the UCS and what he'd want is horribly inaccurate.>>32731167>>We need to distract the Abyssals while we strike the Lintha.
Rolled 10>>32731167>>We need to defeat or delay the Abyssals first.if we don't have the time and they move against us, but if we do have the time then>>We need to distract the Abyssals while we strike the Lintha.
Rolled 10>>32731167>>We need to distract the Abyssals while we strike the Lintha.This is bait.
Rolled 2>>32731167>We need to defeat or delay the Abyssals first.The Lintha might amass power to stop us at sea but it's not in them to actually try to conquer the island. The abyssals will have no such qualms and they'll throw down hard. We gotta deal with them or our fleet going after the Black Atoll might be the only thing left to us.
>>32731136I would hope after all that training we did with her she would have had time to catch us up on any important sun worshiping info she has.
Rolled 3We could pray to the UCS and ask him how he wants to be worshiped
Rolled 7>>32731167>We need to defeat or delay the Abyssals first.>>32731207>>32731213>10>10WHY?
Maka needs to communes with the Sun and ask him how he feels about erotic/sexual prayers~
Rolled 4>>32731234Dice no liek abyssals
Rolled 6>>32731227I think Maka has already done that. The UCS's response was basically "Be totally awesome."
Rolled 4>>32731227Thread 4>"I wish to learn how to worship you, so I can teach others how to worship you!">"THEN, BE A CHAMPION OF JUSTICE, AND TEACH OTHERS ABOUT JUSTICE.">The voice hits you like a brick wall made of echo.>"TEACH OTHERS ABOUT KINDNESS. TEACH THEM ABOUT LOVE. TEACH THEM ABOUT RESPONSIBILITY. TEACH THEM ABOUT SADNESS. TEACH THEM ABOUT GUILT. AND TEACH THEM ABOUT HOPE."
>>32731195>Maka, if anything, likely comes from a tradition of worshiping the volcano deities around Gem as a form of bribery to keep the goods flowing and keep the volcanoes from exploding.Right, but we are in no way obligated to follow that tradition. We probably won't because we know that the UCS doesn't want us to do that. One of the things we should probably explicitly support are the various types of mortal essence wielders. They are generally marginalized, and someone telling them that they are awesome as long as they are being awesome would probably help. I mean, we don't have a million dragonblooded to keep creation safe, so lets use what we can have.
Rolled 1>>32731167>>We need to be ready to repel an attack from then even while our forces are busy against the LinthaI think this is something we should do no matter what else we decide to do, start Tiger Warrior Training the army, see if we can't get Valeriana to give them some sweet shit, I don't expect her to make artifacts, but maybe give everyone excellent gear, maybe bring in some of Tia's barbarians to beef up the army too
Rolled 3>>32731313Having valeriana equip the ENTIRE army is a little much but she might be able to hook up our officers with some fancier gear.I mean it's not that she can't do it but she needs all the time she can get to really oversee construction of the city and manse.
>>32731259Also, add worship and veneration of Nysla to the list. Girl really needs some love
After thinking about it for a few minutes:"...we'll need a distraction.""Distraction?" She replies."Something that can buy us time... enough time to get our forces from the sea back to the island to face anything they might throw at us."She nods. "...Do we know what they're actually after, though?""They apparently want the island, but don't care about its inhabitants. I remember Feurdelis saying that she was ready to let the city evacuate bloodlessly.""Who knows what they plan to do with Tianna, though. It can't be anything safe." She mumbles. "...So, how do you plan to distract them?"You comb through the ideas crossing your mind...>(reply?)
Rolled 7>>32731353We need bait.Something to make them run in circles chasing ghosts while we do our business.To do that we need data.
Rolled 9>>32731353haven't the faintest idea, why do they want the island, maybe if we knew that, if we knew what the fuck is up with the island, then we might be able to redirect or slow their efforts, but we don't know what the fuck is up with the island, so we don't know how to distract them...
Rolled 1>>32731353they may be after old magitech/first age stuff on the island.create a fake dig site where we've supposedly found a bunch of artifacts or something. Something big like an airship or soulbreaker orbs
Rolled 7>>32731353>We try to find out ourselves what's so bloody special about the island and use that.Time to go all Indiana Jones on this thing!
>>32731259>various types of mortal essence wieldersI think we should also make a point of getting in good with other non-human races. Dragon Kings, Jadeborn, and whatever others exist in the blank spots on the map in EF's version of Creation. Reestablishing a proper culture for the Dragon Kings here in Pearl, a city that will be itself a city-sized church to the Sun, would be amazing, and in many ways ideal.We just need to get to Heaven first to get the DK scribes there to help us start the first new DK academy.
Rolled 4>>32731353Is there some way we can make the island stupidly difficult to find for select parties while our fleet is hitting the Lintha?I mean the abyssals can't invade if they spend all their time steaming in circles.
Rolled 1>>32731353If we knew why they wanted the island we could use that as a distractionMaybe this is the time to talk to Phoenix, if he's still lurking around the city
>>32731355She's the one who controls the daystar, and was the UCS second back when he did the job. Also has had an unrequited love for the UCS (which he may or may not have noticed) since before the Primordial war. She works herself until she literally passes out to uphold his ideals, and she really, really needs to get laid.
>>32731420She seems nice.Threesome?
Rolled 9>>32731353Let's figure out what the shit is on this rock that makes it so valuable to the abyssals.
Rolled 10>>32731353we need to know what they want about this island
Rolled 9>>32731416>Maybe this is the time to talk to Phoenix, if he's still lurking around the cityIf he's still here now would be a good time to talk to him, feed him false info, find out exactly what they want, seduce him to our side
>>32731430She's a bit blunt to people who are corrupt dicks (by which I mean she tends to physically assault them), so she's not exactly the favorite of the celestial bureaucracy. But yeah, there isn't a more honest, harder working god in creation.
We need to to back to research about the island itself. I suggest we have a chat with the city god once we recover. And maybe start looking though the castle libraries or royal archives for the island's history.
>>32731420>daystar>being canon in this version of the settingI sure fucking hope not.
>>32731568I still wish there were a haunted house/graveyard somewhere on the island so we could check out the Underworld.
Rolled 3>>32731529So we are totally boning her
>>32731569Nydia can be the UCS's personal secretary or something.
Rolled 9>>32731597that we totally bone
>>32728160fuck yeah finally! just got online and found this. Exalted is not dead!Lets get up to speed and then voraciously devour this A grade entertainment.
>>32731597I actually got her reassigned to be in charge of the department that manages the UCS prayers and the responses to them once. The carnage was increadible, and the UCS's prayers went up 50% in 6 months.
"...First, we need to know what's so special about this island." You point out. "This has got to have something to do with your first age weapon cache, and the weird sand up north.""Last I heard..." Millian interjects. "...miss Valeriana was finishing the manse's foundation in Pearl and found something underground.""Something like what?" You ask."No idea." She shrugs. "Word of mouth.""But maybe it's another piece of the puzzle." You suggest."Might be worth checking." Amata nods....You can't help but suspect that she ALREADY knows the secret of the island. But if you ask her, she'll deny...Or maybe you're just being paranoid. In any case, you have to trust that, if she isn't telling you, it's for a good reason."Well, I could try and have a chat with Phoenix, if he's still stalking me." You add."He probably is." She nods. "We still sight him every now and then. But what do you hope of getting out of him?""I have no idea, but I'd still give it a try. How about I try and meet him tonight, and then unless anything weird happens, we get to Pearl tomorrow and try and put the pieces of the puzzle together? We can send Five Tails up north to call Tia as well, in case she stumbled into something as well."Sounds like a great idea. Now that the Immaculates have calmed down, I can afford leaving the fort for a day or two." She nods. You look straight into the eyes. "Until then, we can enjoy ourselves waiting for the night to come~"Millian just shakes her head and leaves you alone.(cont.)>>32731569(it is, except it can also transform into a giant super robot)
>>32731690>(it is, except it can also transform into a giant super robot)>the Daystar not only exists, it's a mechQuest dropped.
Rolled 7>>32731705>mechthe term is warstrider
Rolled 4>>32731705I thought you knew how much EF likes magitech, there was no way he wasn't going to include the DaystarMaybe we'll get to ride it
Rolled 1>>32731705why do people dislike the Daystar?
Rolled 3>>32731690>The ship that peacefully carries the light of the UCS across Creation can also transform into a giant warstrider to smite his enemies.Now that's how you Exalted.
Rolled 9>>32731750because they're secretly the Ebon Dragon
Rolled 4>>32731789yep, exalted, the only game where you can say "I'm no mere God" and be totally serious about itI luv it
Rolled 10We still need to tell Pyre that she was awesome for kicking Asshole!DB in the face
Rolled 1>>32731828We also need to tell her off. We told her to RUN if that asshole showed up. She decided to run TOWARDS him. That kind of rules-lawyering would be impressive to an Eclipse, but not to us.
Rolled 4>>32731879are we going to punish her?
Rolled 6>>32731879>>32731828scold her till she's down, then give her a big hug and tell her she did good nonetheless
Night is about to fall and the last rays of light filter through the window's curtains.At first you thought that Amata, both arms wrapped around you in a tight embraced, had fallen asleep, but she was apparently deep in thought about something.You gently kiss her forehead. "What's wrong.""...We need to talk about your problem, Maka."You lift an eyebrow. "What problem?""You know what problem, right?" She turns the question on you.You sigh. "...Yes, I know."She sinks deeper into tour bosom. "It might be an aftereffect of your Exaltation, or of certain charms you've developed. Or it might just be how you are, and Exaltation just helped it come out. Now... I love you anyway, Maka. Heck, I'll admit, I might be loving you even more BECAUSE of it. But... you have to promise me something."You know what it is even before she speaks. "...I have to keep it under control. I know. It..." You hesitate. "I won't joke: it's hard. Especially when I have to actively try and seduce people like I just did."She shakes her head. "It's not just that." She looks up to you. "Maka, you need to realize. You're more beautiful and physically attractive than any mortal, you have charms and powers that make you even more desirable and skilled in bed, and even that make you almost completely tireless. You have an enormous sexual appetite, and all the means to satisfy it in any possible way you could want. With anyone, anywhere." She smiles tiredly. "That's a lot of power to have."You slowly nod. Damn, she can read you like an open book. "So... Remember, I and Tia will always be there for you." She reaches up and gently kisses you. "If we're not enough, and we might not be sometimes, knowing you... there are the others. You have Smoke and Silk, Irene and Samiel, the other lunars, the other solars, your priestess, that walking sixpack, and so on... Just...""Not go wild, right?" You kiss her back."Only on us."(cont.)
Rolled 7>>32731897Yes. We're going to spank her in the name of the Sun~. We can even make it a prayer.
>>32731906Amata Best waifuAs always
Rolled 2>>32731906>that walking sixpackwho?
Rolled 1>>32731906>Amata is already putting together a coping strategy for our Great Curse/Limit BreakAmata, I've said it before, and I'll say it again. You're my favorite waifu. Tia is still my husbando.
Rolled 2>>32731933our DB assassin dancer
Feeling much reinvigorated by the time spent with Amata, you leap out of the bed and get dressed.As the night grows darker, you set out, looking for the elusive Abyssal.Of course, it's not long before he finds you. You meet on the rooftop of a tall complex of apartments in central Tianna. The night is still young, and crowds of passerbys by the light of torches and lanterns still wander the streets without any idea of your presence up there."I thought you wanted nothing to do with me anymore." Phoenix says, wrapping himself up in his cape. "After all, you never replied to my letter, and talked about it to Amata despite my request to keep it private, did you not?">Why do you keep spying on me?>What do you want from Amata?>What do you want from Tianna?>What do you know?>What are you going to do now?>Can we make a truce?>(other)
Rolled 10>>32731906Amata is a good wife, I will always be happy with our decision to marry herIn light of trying to be less of a giant slut how about a wardrobe change?We still have that Gossamer corset/tabard outfit we never wear
Rolled 8>>32731961>What do you want from Tianna?
Rolled 7>>32731961>>Why do you keep spying on me?>Can we make a truce?>What do you want from Tianna?
Rolled 3>>32731961>What do you know?>What do you want from Tianna?>What are you going to do now?>Can we make a truce?In that order. We're in dire need of his context before we discuss a ceasefire.
Rolled 7>>32731961okay, at least be reasonable, we might be on different sides on this, but he was trying to be nice>Why do you keep spying on me?>What do you want from Tianna?also>Amata is my wife and I don't have any secrets to keep from her.
>>32731961>Can we make a truce?>(other)"Oh,I wouldn't say I want NOTHING to do with you. I just needed to sort my priorities and grow into my powers first. Now that we can treat as equals, we can have a meaningful discussion about how we're going to prevent unnecessary violence on this island."
>>32731961>Oh, I its not that I don't want anything to do with you. I just had to ask the boss upstairs a few questions first. His answers were enlightening.
>>32731961>Why do you keep spying on me?>What do you want from Tianna?>>32731965Given how our body changed when we upped our Social (Appearance) I don't think the corset would fit anymore. I'm also too much in love with the tabard, even if it gets us in trouble sometimes. The only other things we've worn that I liked was the Bikini we danced in and the Ragyou/OP Pic fusion outfit.
>>32731961Oh add something like this >>32732033 (though phrased more eloquently) to my vote here >>32732038
Rolled 2>>32731961>>What do you want from Tianna?>>What are you going to do now?
Rolled 3>>32731961>What do you want from Tianna?>Can we make a truce?I want to save him, get him on our side and try and turn his shard back into a solar one, well not just him if possible, all the other Abyssals too
Rolled 2>>32732033I'm for bringing this up, but not opening with it.
Rolled 5>>32732062>turn his shard back into a solar oneThat's not something we can do for him, and him doing that himself is something ABSOLUTELY FUCKING MASSIVE enough to build an entire quest around, and then some.
Rolled 3>>32731961I'll second >>32732020first we sex him up, then when he's ours he can spill the beans
>>32731965I keep trying anon.>>32732038You really underestimate the ability of Gossamer.
>>32731961Activate MRP obviously.
Rolled 4>>32731961>Why do you keep spying on me?Oh, come on. We had JUST Exalted. We had a lot of stuff to figure out before adding a pen-pal.
Rolled 8>>32732111>Oh, come on. We had JUST Exalted. We had a lot of stuff to figure out before adding a pen-pal.This is also true, that was way back when we were still trying to figure out who we were and what we wanted
Rolled 4>>32732107and that, of course
Rolled 1>>32732107seconding this
Rolled 3>>32732080Still, having been told what he is from UCS-sempai, we now have some common ground with him. It's a start.
Rolled 1>>32732080Oh for sure, I'm not saying it'll be easy or even that we'll be able to do it, but I want to give him the chance to be able to, plus remember what UCS said
Rolled 3>>32732087>You really underestimate the ability of Gossamer.That doesn't change the fact that I don't like it as much as the tabard.>>32732107+1
Rolled 5>>32731961>What do you want from Tianna?>Why would you assume I'd want to do any of this on your terms?
Rolled 5>>32732139>That doesn't change the fact that I don't like it as much as the tabard.I like the tabard, but only wearing one piece of clothing forever is just fucking BORING. It's boring in the same way that constant-lewds are no longer exciting. What kind of person doesn't change their clothes sometimes?The tabard's been our main/only outfit for WEEKS in-game. Change it the fuck up.
Rolled 1>>32732164Fucking this, we need some variety in our wardrobe
Rolled 9>>32732138We're gonna redeem the Abyssals, then we're gonna do the same to the Deathlords.We're gonna make UCS-Senpai so pround
>>32732038The corset fits even better. That's how increasing Appearance works.You cut to the chase. "What's the deal with Tianna?"He sighs. "Figures.""Answer my question.""You're not going to believe me.""Try me.""Alright." He sighs. "Here's all I can say: you can evacuate entirely Tianna island. No one gets hurt. You leave us complete control over the island for a month. I can't guarantee that any buildings, or the island itself, will be intact once we're finished using it, but I guarantee that no one will get hurt, and that, if you could know my mistress' plans, even you would approve of them.">I believe you>I don't believe youCombined with:>Why do you keep spying on me?>What do you want from Amata?>What do you know?>What are you going to do now?>Can we make a truce?>(other)
>>32732171>I don't believe you>Why do you keep spying on me?>What do you want from Amata?
Rolled 8>>32732171>I don't believe you>What are you going to do now?
Rolled 2>>32732171>>I believe youBUT>Those terms aren't exactly something we can agree to.>What are you going to do now?
Rolled 2>>32732171Say... can he use dodge charms on that question?
Rolled 9>>32732171>I don't believe you>What are you going to do now?
>>32732171>I believe you, the ghost of an insane first age solar who's giving you orders on the other hand...
Rolled 1>>32732171>I believe you, but those terms aren't ones someone can accept on faith.
Rolled 7>>32732171>I don't believe you>I would welcome a diplomatic solution to this conflict, but without at least an attempt at transparency, it's impossible for us to agree with any demands.
Rolled 3>>32732171>I don't believe you>What are you going to do now?
>>32732171>I believe you, but that's unacceptable.>What are you going to do now?
Rolled 8>>32732171>I believe youSure why not>>32732192>>Those terms aren't exactly something we can agree to.Also this, if we could now more then maybe or even make another plan together, but we can't up and leave like that no matter whatAnd also>What are you going to do now?>Can we make a truce?If I really would approve of this plan let's talk about it, let's find a peaceful solution
Rolled 5>>32732171Now would have been a super good time to have JET to see if he was telling the truth
>>32732171>I believe you.>It doesn't really matter, though, because that's entirely off the table.>Want to try again? I'm still interested in a truce.
Rolled 10>>32732171>I believe you>We need to negotiate. Mass evacuation isn't really an option.
Rolled 10>>32732171>>I don't believe youhe said we weren't, and we don't>Can we make a truce?this island is ours bitch, we ain't handing it over for them to mess with
Rolled 3>>32732205Seconding something like this. >I believe you>Why do you keep spying on me?We believe he actually means (kind of) well to the people of Tianna, but without knowing the plans we can't say whether his trust in his mistress is justified. Also: still never going to happen.
Rolled 1>>32732164I still want to put Maka in a sundress
Do we really have 12 EXP?
Rolled 4>>32732171>>I believe you>Why do you keep spying on me?>Can we make a truce?
>>32732245>this island is ours bitch, we ain't handing it over for them to mess withOh, I believe he is telling the truth, that doesn't make his terms acceptable.
Rolled 9>>32732138>THE UNCONQUERED SUN WILL TURN BACK TO THE WORLD OF CREATIONHoly shit I didn't now he said that
Rolled 5>>32732294That's why we've gotta get Pearl finished. Guy's going to need a place to rest his GLORIOUS SOLAR FEET when he comes down to visit.
Rolled 9>>32732275Matching sundress for Pyre too
>>32732276yeah, so since we are now masters of persuasion we should get some martial arts prowess>>32732406wasn't that official cult of maka attire?
Rolled 6>>32732275Oh dear god yes we must have casual wear like that for Maka
Rolled 3>>32732406oh fuck yes
Rolled 5>>32732480>>32732406I wonder, is it possible to have a strapless sundress?I mean Maka's tits are big enough to hold it up on their own.
Rolled 6>>32732519Yes and Double Yes
Rolled 6>>32732519We could probably figure something out
>>32732480>>32732497>>32732519>>32732531Well, I'm glad you're all eager for a change of wardrobe that doesn't break every law of decency in existence....right. Solar, I forgot.
Rolled 5>>32732550anon, this is just when we want to be modest, or as modest and casual as we can be, for serious business, we have tassel bikini's
[MRP] [Essence 4/5]Social + Zenith + MRP = 8 2 2 9 1 7 3 8 5 10 10 = 8 successes"...Regardless of whether I do or don't believe you, you know perfectly well that we're not going to evacuate the entire island just because you're asking politely."He nods. "I can imagine.""What are you going to do now?" You fold your arms."Invade Tianna the moment you sail out to fight the Lintha?" He suggests with a smile.You roll your eyes. "You know, huh.""You were also pretty hot with those immaculates back then. Bit clumsy, maybe.""Nevermind that. We NEED to take out the Lintha.""And we need to take over this island.""WHY? You know the secret of Tianna?""Not in full, but my mistress does." He explains. "And no, I'm not going to tell you even what little I know." He smiles. "You know, we could help you against the Lintha.""...In exchange for the island?""I know that sounds like such a no-deal to you. But would you at least consider it?""Even if you take the field with us, that doesn't prove anything. It doesn't guarantee that you won't backstab us.""It doesn't." He admits. "But I'm hoping you'll at least see that we're actually TRYING to come to a peaceful deal and you're the one shooting down all of our proposals.""Don't make me look like the bad guy here." You reply angrily. >Fight together with us, and I promise I'll take your demands into greater consideration.>I don't need your help, just leave us alone until we've settled things with the Lintha.>No, sorry, but your demands are entirely unacceptable. No deal. Of any kind.>(other)
Rolled 4>>32732574>No, sorry, but your demands are entirely unacceptable. No deal. Of any kind.
Rolled 8>>32732574>>I don't need your help, just leave us alone until we've settled things with the Lintha.we should probably turn on our social attack charms so we win this argument by waking up with him unconscious in bed with us
Rolled 1>>32732574>"You were also pretty hot with those immaculates back then. Bit clumsy, maybe."This smug fucker, I like him>>32732574>Say this again with my Eclipse over our hands and I'll agree
>>32732574"A fair point though. How about a counter-proposal: turn back. As the Unconquered Son says"NO EVIL BORN OF A HUMAN HEART IS BEYOND REDEMPTION. NO DARKNESS BORN OF A HUMAN SOUL IS TOO BLEAK FOR LIGHT." Help me build something good here, rather than destroying all I work for.
Rolled 10>>32732652>Say this again with my Eclipse over our hands and I'll agreeNo we won't the Island is a no no.>>32732652this
Rolled 9>>32732574>Your proposals are all completely ridiculous, come with zero attempts at actual justification to back them, and not a hint of mutual benefit. Your 'diplomacy' is no different from an invader making unilateral demands.
>>32732628>>Say this again with my Eclipse over our hands and I'll agreeNo we won't. He might blow up the island and clearly wants a superweapon. Probably to attack the Realm.
>>32732574>I don't need your help, just leave us alone until we've settled things with the Lintha.Clumsy? CLUMSY? Care to test the remark? Here and now.
>>32732574>(other)"Listen, the 'mysterious stranger' bit was cute for a while, but it's wearing thin. The island itself is too large and too heavily populated to evacuate. The logistics of it simply aren't possible. So, you want something ON the island. I'm guessing either the first age weapons or the materials to make them. Nobody alive trusts the dead to have those exclussively and we're not going to hand them over. So it's time to compromise. If you spell out EXACTLY what it is you want and how you plan to get it, we can work together to share it. You and your mistress get 40 percent, Tianna and its people get 40%, and I and my circle get 20% of whatever it is. You're not going to be allowed to run loose and destroy Creation unopposed. But that doesn't mean we can't work out a deal where everyone wins.
Rolled 7>>32732652works for me
Rolled 10>>32732628Yeah, get Mikhael in on this.
>>32732708>>32732697>>32732691>>32732652turn on dice
>>32732628No we won't. Seriously, we aren't giving up the island.
Rolled 1>>32732744trying. 4chan keeps messing up for me. Maybe it's the extension. It keeps blanking the email field and not displaying the captcha
>>32732708No, nope, not a chance. You do not give abyssals any piece of ancient solar super magitech.
Rolled 3>>32732628>>32732574>>32732760>>32732691To clarify because I wasn't very clear, I meant we'll agree to think about or at least for further talks to try and figure out what they want at least, not giving them the island if they fight with us
Rolled 8This seems contentious.
Rolled 4>>32732856not really, we ain't taking his deal or letting them have the island for any amount of time, the hard part is figuring out how to get what we need from him, and fast because this conversation has been fucking useless so far, we've gotten absolutely nothing out of it, nor have we swayed him to our side any
Rolled 4>>32732574>(other)"...who were you, Phoenix? You were once a Solar, a Champion of Creation. What happened? What that your Mistress is offering is worth so much loyalty? You can return to the Unconquered Sun, you know. I'm a Zenith. He told me."Kind of lame, but no one's been pushing the redemption angle (might not be a real option, but worth a shot?)
Rolled 2Yeah, dice.Whatever we say, pop TTTH.
Rolled 2>>32732933I'll second that>>32732904>Kind of lame, but no one's been pushing the redemption angle (might not be a real option, but worth a shot?)honestly where we're at in this convo is an awkward place to be pushing that, and if someone comes up with a good write-in going for that angle, I'll support it, but I'm drawing a blank and the pro-offered ones are shit
Rolled 7>>32732987>this convo is an awkward place to be pushing thatPretty much, maybe we'll get another chance later or another time but right now it's too antagonistic to try it
>>32733004Honestly, now seems like the best time. He's claiming we have no proposals. But we do.
Rolled 7>>32733004kind of annoying that this entire meet up with Phoenix has been a fucking waste of time and effort
>>32732652Works for me. All the other proposals are terrible.
Rolled 3>>32733040make a good one and I'll support it, but I'm not seeing any proposals for us other than "no your not getting the island, we sex now?"
You frown. Deeply. "I'm not going to give up the island. To anyone. For anything. Besides, the evacuation's logistics would be... basically impossible.""It was just a possibility. You can leave the people on the island and we are not going to hurt them. Although it WOULD be better if you got them out of the way. We could also help with the evacuation with our airship.""That's not even the point. Look, I might not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I can tell that whatever you want is probably the first age weapons.""Not... really?""Whatever it is, how about we split it?"He just shakes his head. "...You have no idea what you're even talking about." He sighs. "Look, some of us want to get your island without causing a mess and probably with your help. we actually want you to help us and be on our side for this. But others would just prefer to remove any sort of trouble, including you and the people of the island.""Like Fleurdelis?""Fleurdelis has... many virtues. Patience is not one of those. I want to make this deal with you before she does something stupid. Which... she might do in any case. But at least if I get back home with a promise that you'll actually try to make a deal with us, she might calm down.""In any case, you're not getting anything without a lot of sanctified oaths." you reply."Tell you what. I buy you one week of time to deal with the Lintha. During this one week, you have nothing to fear from us. We can also exchange hostages. Once the week is over, we meet and try and come to an agreement. Even if the agreement fails, I'd like to at least set some rules there in case we end up fighting. Being champions of death doesn't mean we're monsters, you know.">Yes>No
>>32733058Uh, the other suggestion is: turn back to the light instead of serving darkness, and help me build something worth fighting for.How in the world is that "we sex now?"
>>32733044Well, I pretty much saw it coming. Of course he's not going to reveal the Abyssal plans like a saturday morning cartoon villain. Of course we aren't going to make a deal with an Abyssal. Of course we aren't going to evacuate the island.Both sides came to this meeting with entirely non-viable bargains. Maybe the deal is just an excuse to chat, or something, because clearly neither Phoenix nor Maka actually thought anything would come of this.
Rolled 9>>32733071>YesThat's actually quite reasonable and civil.
Rolled 8>>32733071>YesBut this better not be a trick!
>>32733071>YesI don't think we're going to move against the lintha in that week but that will let us prepare for the abyssals.
>>32733071>Yes"You also don't have to be champions of death you know. You were solars once. Should you wish it, you could be solars again. No darkness born of the human soul is to bleak for light after all."
Rolled 10>>32733071>YesIt's what we need, a delay and we aren't promising them the islandAs long as it's a sanctified deal I'm up for itI really want JET by the next time we have to talk to him
Rolled 7>>32733071>He just shakes his head. "...You have no idea what you're even talking about."no we fucking don't, and its getting fucking stupid at this point, Amata for fucks sake just tell us alfuckingready so we can actually plan and work out shit and move forward instead of being confused little children in the sandbox>>32733071>Yeswe really need Amata to be dealing with this shit she dumped in our lap without telling us fucking jack shit about, I was willing to trust her to be able to deal with things and let us know if her fucking retarded secrets became important, and this is getting fucking moronic
Rolled 7>>32733071>No"You don't have to be the enemy, you know. You're on the wrong side here, you can be better than this."
Rolled 9>>32733071that's the best of an agreement we are going to get guys, a week in which we can deal with the lintha... hopefully it will suffice>Yes
Rolled 6>>32733071>Yes>>32733122Let's not go full boar REDEMPTION before we've even got an agreement hammered out.
Rolled 3>>32733071Seconding >>32733122 & >>32732652 once again
Rolled 1>>32733071I agree with >>32733122
Rolled 1>>32733122Still don't really think it's appropriate yet, we'll have more chances to talk, let's wait until it's not as ham fisted
>>32733071>YesGoddamnit Phoenix this is like rule #1 of diplomacy. If you merely allude to the master plan, then the imagination of the negotiator is your worst enemy because they will automatically jump to the most ominous and threatening thing possible. Saying 'If you knew what it was, you'd support us as well', doesn't help worth a time because it just further spikes paranoia since people think you are analysing them.Fucking Phoenix.
Rolled 2>>32733101>>32733115>>32733125>>32733127>>32733128>>32733138Holy shit.
Rolled 3>>32733144why not? we do and we might actually get make some fucking progress in this entire conversation for once
Rolled 10>>32733122Sure, why not.
Rolled 2>>32733122Agreed. Don't forget to lay an intimate and comeradly hand on his shoulder. To activate HSDD
Rolled 4>>32733122I want to wait until we know him better, if he's okay with working with the Deathlord, what he wants to accomplish, if he even wants to be a Solar instead of an AbyssalWe just don't know enough about him yet to push it
Rolled 8>>32733219>To activate HSDDwe should totally use that, and TTTH
>>32733071>Yesbut I don't see us agreeing unless he tells us what their actual goals are
>>32733172Well the delay we might manage to secure gives us time to step up preparations and ideally we can begin to sow the seeds of doubt or whatnot in his mind.We aren't going to get him to defect in one conversation but we can lay the groundwork
"...You have a deal. If that's what you want." You reply."That was a funny way to word it." He blinks."Have you ever considered joining me here?" You suggest him. "Building, rather than destroying. Working for life, rather than death."He smiles. "...The world of the dead needs its heroes too. Sorry, but I'm at my best being myself."[Session End]2 XP (Base)1 XP (Solved the Immaculate problem, Maka tryle)
Rolled 8>>32733071>YesIf he's not in a hurry, maybe we should show him the temple manse that's being built. Perhaps a glimpse of the Sun's glory might change his mind. That and more time to seduce him. That 'clumsy' remark is bugging me.
Rolled 9>>32733244Thanks for the thread EF, do keep us updated on twitter regarding the quests status when/if you can while on your internship, would hate for it to die and there be no word from you on it
>>32733244soooo... when do we turn him into a team mate?Also, good session EF, gonna miss this the two month you're in englang
>>32733244>[Session End]Thanks for the thread as always EFI was glad to see it back
Rolled 1>>32733244Aw, no EXP for dealing with Phoenix?Thanks for the thread, EF! Good to have you back!
>>32733244Level up time? Any clue on when the next session will be? I'm glad this quest isn't dead.

>>32733313Right, so, if I remember right, you only count votes that choose only one option, right? In that case...>Monkey Leap Technique (permanent, vastly increased jumping distance/height)That will be INSANELY useful in ship-to-ship combat.
>>32733313i'd really like to get some dawn charms, that fight with deled would have been our doom if not for five-tails and walking six pack
lets get more dots.
>>32733313Fists of Iron
>>32733270I'll try and keep you guys posted via twitter.The quest isn't dead, and, honestly, i promise you i'll let you know, via twitter at least, if i ever have to stop doing it. As long as I don't, it means that it's running, even if slowly. :D
>>32733329Agreed. Let's work on our mobility.
Rolled 5>>32733329Good point. Our combat charms don't mean shit if we can't get close enough to use them.>>32733313>Monkey Leap Technique
Rolled 5>>32733313Because it wasn't posted in this thread>Attributes cost [current score x5] xp. Abilities cost [current score x3] xp, except Zenith costing [(current score x3) -1]. Charms cost 10 xp, except for Zenith-based charms (related to charisma and physical/mental fortitude) which cost 8 xp.
Rolled 6>>32733350>The quest isn't dead, and, honestly, i promise you i'll let you know, via twitter at least, if i ever have to stop doing it. As long as I don't, it means that it's running, even if slowly. :DOh I know, its just that the threads and twitter are all we have to see its pulse, and weeks/months of radio silence gives us heart palpitations and eventually we lose hope
Rolled 7>>32733350>I'll try and keep you guys posted via twitter.Please do. A quest that used to be daily going more than a week without running is a sure sign to most people that it's dead.
Rolled 10>>32733313As a side note, Is it possible to spend XP to increase backgrounds, or is the only way via Story/increasing Social
Rolled 3>>32733313>Monkey Leap Technique (permanent, vastly increased jumping distance/height)Failing that, Lightning Speed, HTH, or Essence-Gathering Temper would be nice too. I LOVE permanent charms, especially in this essence-strapped system your quest uses.
Rolled 2>>32733313Physical 4.
Rolled 6>>32733313>Dawn 4>Night 3
Isn't HTH good for punching lintha off ships?Thought we had an agreement to get that after HSDD.
>>32733306We didn't deal with him. We just delayed dealing with him until after we're done punching demons.
>>32733397Increasing Mental gives us more Essence and there's a charm behind EGT that would give us more boxes too, kind like that one Tia has
>>32733427It is, but that doesn't matter if we don't have enough mobility to get onto the ships in the first place. That's why I voted for Monkey Leap.
>>32733406That spends all our EXP.>>32733444So Mental 3 or EGT?
>>32733313>Monkey Leap Technique (permanent, vastly increased jumping distance/height)I'm on board with the mobility boosts. We don't have good enough ranged combat abilities for ship-to-ship fighting otherwise. We're basically a walking artillery piece with that jump charm, though.
>>32733458Mental 3 is cheaper now but it'll eventually cost too much to not be worth itBut for now I would rather get something else first
>>32733313Which is mechanically better right now? Increasing Attributes and Abilities or getting more Charms?
>>32733313Monkey Leap techniqueAlso reiterating this question >>32733396, it'd be cool to buy a Sidereal Ally.
>>32733444thought he said some time after lunar edition that one was out
>>32733488>Which is mechanically better right now? Increasing Attributes and Abilities or getting more Charms?Getting more charms is ALWAYS mechanically better - even with the new buffs to Attributes - unless we REALLY need more essence/health/backgrounds or need to unlock new charm tiers.
>>32733506I think we need more health. The fight with Deled nearly killed us.
>>32733506I STILL want more Night so we can get the walk on water charm
>>32733488Charms > Abilities > AttributesGetting Zenith 5 would be worth saving for it as would upgrading Night some, but charms especially Permanents are great with our small essence pool
>>32733539We can get Night 3 and 4, Dawn 4, or Zenith 5.
Rolled 5>>32733313>Monkey Leap Technique (permanent, vastly increased jumping distance/height)
>>32733313EGT sounds in characterand overall goodtaken
Rolled 8>>32733533yeah, we drastically need more HP
>>32733533We could get some armor to cover not having health, even a 1 soak armor with our IKB would mean an attack would have to do 3 damage minimum to even hurt us
>>32733313>Heaven Thunder Hammer (Permanent, succesful hits have knockback effect)
>>32733553Its more complicated than that. Don't forget that in exalted you frequently start off at 5 in the things you actually use
Rolled 2>>32733313>Heaven Thunder Hammer (Permanent, succesful hits have knockback effect)
Rolled 9>>32733569how would we go about getting such armor?and when do we get the god kicking boots and smashfists from Vale
>>32733569Armor and IKB don't stack.
>>32733603>and when do we get the god kicking boots and smashfists from ValeNext time we see her, I think we could get a mundane armor that would work once per scene from the city but we'll have to wait for Vale to get more Orihalchum before we get a decent artifact armor
>>32733620Can you answer this question here?>>32733396>>32733496
>>32733620Would multiple soak charms stack or could we get and upgrade to IKB?
>>32733313Voting for Physical 4. More health is always better.
>>32733641Only by raising Social.
>>32733662So after we hit Social 5, there won't be any way to add dots to Backgrounds other than story? I guess that makes sense, though I'm not very found of it.
>>32733620Armor could still be worth it if only to help save us essence early on in fights, but that can wait I think
Rolled 6>>32733313Physical 4. Makes us punchier since we still lack a combat focused circle member.
>>32733644Zenith 5 has another soak charm in Adamant Body Technique, costing 1 essence but making you completely immune to any damage for one turn, and can be activated as reaction to an attack. Other than that, IKB is as good as natural soak for solars gets.>>32733683yes.
you all do realize that the more dots we have the more charms we get...I guess that's too much for such simple minds really.
>>32733703Tia is our combat focused member. She is a kraken remember.
>>32733716>Adamant Body Techniquewell NEED thatbut fist of iron sounds good too
>>32733716>and can be activated as reaction to an attackhow would that work in this format?And I'm guessing a turn is one post.
I would like us to go for Sagacious Reading of Intent. Considering we are a leader type and do not have mikhail all the time with us i believe we kind of have to get these fourJudge's Ear Technique Courtier's Eye Technique Mastery of Small Manners Sagacious Reading of IntentIf we want to be a viable faction leader. Starting with Sagacious reader.However if better than Monkey Leap technique would be Sea Wolf Style we were offered in the pirate episodes that gives us a +3 to naval dice rolls when active.Unless we can count on another admiral with better scores. And we did not really get the measure of the DB Admiral of Tianna.That being said being able to jump from our ships on the Black atol like a human missile in conjunction with our lunar friends might be a sight to see. But if we have them with us we can hitch rides already...
>>32733794Tia will be too busy being a Kraken to carry us.
>>32733808what about zaan?
>>32733808>Not riding your Lunar husbando into battle
>>32733794Good advice being able to immediately understand reasons and intentions might be something we would want to be able to do if we still go about adventuring or on our lonesome and making intrigue and deals and such without eclipse or such backup.But the essence cost of firing all four up is simply not feasible unless we double our essence pool.
Rolled 4>>32733722well I'm an exalted newbie and have no fucking idea what I'm doing in regards to charms and whatnot, hence why I've not votedso please, explain to this simple mind
>>32733844Its not that hard.We have a max of 5 Esseance.All non-permanent charms cost 1 essence to activate.We can only use one charm before everyone around us can tell we're using Solar Shenanigans because we begin glowing.
Rolled 8We're on Page 9 and falling. Are we going to find out what XP purchase we're getting, or will that reveal be saved for the start of the next thread?
Rolled 5>>32733879>Its not that hard.It kind of is when the only exposure to Exalted I have is this quest...also what you said has as far as I can tell, no relation to what you posted that I replied to
>>32733917he's a different anonI'm the one who posted that. anyway the more dots we have the more stronger charms we can get and the more dice we can use.
>>32733917Sorry, I thought you quoted someone else. My bad. Here's how it works.A Solar needs a High rank in Abilities to access stronger charms. Also, the number of Dot in a Castes abilities is how many of that castes charms EF posts for us to choose from at the end of each thread.
>>32733982Which do you think we should prioritize? Zenith 5 for Adamant Body Technique, or Dawn 4 for whatever, or Night 4 for the water-walking charm?
>>32733995I think we should get Monkey Leap Technque because we're 2 levels of night and a prerequisite charm away from walking on water, though that is my current goal.That and Social 5 so we can get more dots in background to buy a Gold Faction Sidereal ally to teach us Sapphire Veil of Passion, which is a martial arts style I think Maka would be well suited to.
Rolled 7>>32734071>I think we should get Monkey Leap TechnqueAgreed. We want something to let us cross between ships in the here and now.
Rolled 4>>32733995Dawn 4 or Social 5
easy thing: if we go the command route we'd better take zenith, if we're going to fight side by side with our sailors, we'll need dawn/physicaland then there's the case of mental, which would help is in both but not as much, since, essence pool and stuff
>>32733885Honestly it doesn't seem like there's much consensus on what to buy and votes are all over. I honestly don't know what to do save delay the XP use.
Rolled 9>>32734154It looked like there was a consensus on Monkey Leap. Now it's just two dudes arguing about buying dots after everyone's already cast their votes. See:>>32733329>>32733362>>32733397>>32733479>>32733496>>32733561Aside from that, there were three votes for increasing Physical and two for HTH as the closest runner-ups.
>>32734154nah that's okay, we'll need some time and cake, maybe tea, and somehow we'll get something with +1 to all othersso, yeah, better do that till we get a consensus
>>32734120social 5 takes 20 XP
>>32734192I think he meant Zenith 5.
>>32734071The Sidereal will, of course, be a chosen of Serenity, as they are the only ones that could keep up with Maka.
>>32734223I want Social 5 too (see >>32734071 for why) but we need to improve Maka's fighting abilities to get past the Lintha first, now isn't the time to be saving up.
>>32734154How many dots would Nysla be worth as a mentor/ally?
>>32734186Yeah, I stopped posting because I made my point already. I'm definitely under the impression that Monkey Leap Technique is the majority opinion, regardless of continued discussion.
Rolled 1>>32734367>dat armorwe need us some in the UCS' colours
>>32734250what did we get smashfists for, when val comes back? heck if we get a proper initiation we should develop our natural style further and keep punching things into submission
>>32734375I have a surprising number of pictures with 'lingerie' in their file name in my Exalted folder.
>>32734154There was a consensus for Monkey Leap Techinque, last I checked.
>>32734367>>32734396Are we posting outfit ideas?
>>32734422We are now!
>>32734367If were talking armor I would prefer something more armor-y
Let's go with Monkey Leap then.
Yay!Also that's what I was going to post next. So I applaud your taste.
>>32734440SureWith that were at 5 XPWe can totally afford Dawn 4 next thread
>>32734456Meant to quote >>32734434Also, I thnk this should be our new dancing outfit
>>32734440could you answer >>32734341As it seems that between the building a gigantic temple manse praying to her love and giving her some veneration she'll probably show up at some point.
>>32734440Sounds good to me. I wanted HTH, but that's good too. It should be super useful for ship-to-ship combat, especially combined with our 'perfect balance' charm. I'm picturing high-flying wire-fu jumping from rope to rope and rigging to rigging.
>>32734481I think for a Celestial God you need a Legendary Background (six dots), which I don't know if EF is using.If he is, we need to put one more dot in our manse.
Guys, remember, the Zenith caste color is Blue - like the blue of a noon-day sky. So, not only are White and Gold great colors for us, but so is Blue mixed in as liberally as you want.
>>32734481Probably Mentor 4.
>>32734509I don't really pay attention to the color of what I post, I figure people can manually add in the White/Gold/Blue.
Rolled 7>>32734509Holy shit this. Most times the less skin you show the more you leave to the imagination.A woman like Maka will leave everyone figuratively( or maybe literally) salivating in anticipation with a dress like that.
>>32734547Yeah, prancing around almost-naked is hot, but so is ANYTHING if it's properly-tailored to your figure.Then again, Maka is from the South, and is currently in the South West.
>>32734547We really have to start expanding our wardrobeWe've been wearing that Tabard since we fought the RakshaAt the very least let's change it up some
>>32734596For sure. The tabard is a classic, and I love it, but wearing the same thing all the time gets absolutely fucking boring.How's this for a battle outfit once we get our smashfists?
Sometimes I like to imagine how some of these outfits would work on Maka's more... generous figure.
>>32734638That chick has tits the size of her head. Maka may have bigger hips/smaller waist, but I hope her gazongas aren't much bigger than that.
>>32734653Have you seen the OPMaka has absolutely stonking tits
Rolled 2>>32734653it ain't wildly disproportionate, and in the version of Maka's reference pic where she's lying down with Tia's Girls loose, they are substantially bigger
>>32734513Are we aware of her existence? I'm not familiar with the setting, so I have no idea how well known she is.
>>32734653Remember Jessica Rabbit?Like that, but darker skin and white hair.
>>32734679Once againStonking tits
>>32734635I like it for the most part, but it kinda violates the "no panties" rule we have had on her outfits. And if we take them off, well, that's kinda going overboard>>32734653After we upped our appearence, it was confirmed that Maka's proportions no longer match the OP pic. What they are exactly is up to you, but I'm one of those "bigger is better, always" people. For me, they are at least half again as big as Maka's head. I'm perfectly fine with other people disagreeing though.
>>32734691GREAT JIGGLING MOUNTAINS!Okay, each of Maka's breasts is slightly bigger than her skull. That's not TOO bad. I mean, that's fuckhuge, don't get me wrong. But any bigger and I would start having problems.And luckily, it looks like she's got a real case of dem hips.Also, the way they droop off to the sides while she's on her back means she's 100% implant-free. The artist has an actual understanding of breast physics, which is nice.
>>32734635I agree with >>32734700, it's good, but we need something other than panties to cover Maka's naughty bits.
Rolled 6>>32734700I always figured that the biggest change in our appearance wasn't our proportions, it was how we carried ourselves.I mean say we have the same impossible body from when we initially exalted but we now instinctively carry ourselves in a manner that is just phenomenal.We draw every eye in the room by virtue of being a sexy bitch with a presence that commands attention.
>>32734700>I'm one of those "bigger is better, always" peopleAh, I'm all about ratios/proportions. Get too much of a good thing and it throws the whole out of whack. Big breasts are good, of course, but only so long as they don't get too large relative to the waist/hips/butt ratio.
>>32734700I'm sure there's something out there that can suit your needs...
I'm always a fan of just barely long enough tops
>>32734774Those are implants.Which, since she appears to be a robot, makes sense.
>>32734741I figure it was both. Millian specifically had to re-size our tabard because it didn't fit anymore.>>32734754Everything always stays in proportion, as a matter of fact the proportions probably got even more perfect after we upped our social.Here's the description by the way>Of course, beauty is subjective and depends on tastes, and it seems that you're going down a path towards a rather specific body type. But your skin, your hair, your face, your shapes... everything seems to have sustained a marked improvement in the last weeks. Even if you started wearing normal clothes, you have no doubt that the figure staring at you from the other side of the mirror wouldn't be recognized by anyone as a mere mortal anymore.
>>32734784Now with fishnets if for some reason you like that
Short dresses are great too
just hope we can get something with the combination of practical and lewd
>>32734849If we were a Dragon-Blood I'd suggest something like this.
>>32734849There is a reason why the tabard is getting so much use.Finding a second 'classic' outfit is tricky.
>>32734916Here were the other option presented to us with the tabard. I'm okay with any of them except the far right.
>>32734946I like second from the left best. The far left looks like something Tia'd wear while playing First Age.
>>32734946The leftmost one might work as a battle outfit.
>>32734946We could just get all of them and actually wear different clothes based on mood and situational propriety. Something fitted and non-restrictive as our fighting gear, for instance.
>>32734946I like the second in from the left, but it raises an important question. Do Bikini bottoms count as panties for the purpose of the "Maka does not wear panties" rule?
>>32734916oh damn, forgot thatso how about something that leaves everything but nothing to imagination?
>>32734946Yep, tabard is still better than the others. That has not changed.Maybe it's the white. Since i like the OP portrait dress as well.
>>32735145We can change the color, though I like the 2nd from the left a lot as is.
