Old thread>>33420115You are Sireyi Valyenya, 18 years old, you are on your first quest.You have retrieved the Horn of Alzurad: a legendary artefact that can call dead heroes back to fight for the holder of the Horn. But now you’re lost on another plane, trying to find your way home.You are currently deciding whether or not to accept a young dragon as your familiar.
>>33426177>Accept the deal
>>33426177We love pre-wrote responses as much as the next guy but you missed everyone asking what the fuck is his motivation.anyhowaccept
>>33426177>Yes. I accept
>>33426177>AcceptThere's no chance of corruption, the QM flat-out stated that this quest had no trap options.Island of Storms and Dark Sister do, though, so we should be more careful there.
>>33426177acceptalso, should we heal him at least till he stops bleeding?
>>33426237He's going to kill himself and transfer the remnants of his power to us, that's his part of the deal.It's only been a minute, how could you have already forgotten?
>>33426237Does our god have an arsenal of divine nukes for when we destroy the barrier and open this bitch up?
>>33426276Also didnt mean to link anyone.
>>33426177There is no other choice. It will be a great boon for decades to come. Additionally, we will have a huge amount of willpower, inhumanly so, in the future. Furthermore, we have contacts to powerful beings, strong enough to let us control the dragon in the unlikely case that it will succumb to its dark nature despite our tutelage.
>>33426276we have a horn
>>33426276We have one on our person right now, we just can't use it until the barrier drops.We will probably also have angels and divine influence start coming back into this world once there's an opportunity.It'd also get rid of that annoying 'double divine power DE cost' effect that's happening right now.
>>33426311blow the horn
>>33426308add long as we behave as we always have and treat it with love and compassion then it will be okay
>>33426177>inb4 it goes insane due to the voices in Sireyi's head
>>33426177>>Accept the deal
>>33426308>succumb to it's dark natureYou really don't know anything about dragons, do you?They aren't evil by nature, that is exclusive to demonkind.>>33426337It'd just go honk and then do nothing.
>>33426359>not remembering blow the horn anon
>>33426359>black dragon>no inherent extremely violent, arrogant and haughty disposition"evil" is not the only label with bad connotations
>>33426369I remember him.I'm the guy that responded with 'No.' or 'Veto.' every single time he posted.
>>33426389fuck you blow the cock
>>33426214His motivation is that Dragons live many millennia, and that the familiar will grow strong because of us. Basically, it's like giving your kid up to be a noble's squire, because you're dirt poor, and eventually that kid's going to have some serious power, land, and because you know they're intelligent, may even inherit if they can swing things. Or he can just let his offspring die. >>33426177Accept, because we can show the familiar that there are choices beyond it's wants and needs (and yes, I do have unused arguments on how treating everyone equally is the highest form of arrogance). "I accept."
>>33426379>Implying those are the result of genetics and not upbringingIt's not going to corrupt us and it won't be inherently a hyper-bastard to everyone else just because it's a black dragon is the only point I'm trying to make.Blearax outright stated hatchling dragons were all love and trust, that would imply that it's the world and their parents that make them into cynical hyper-bastards.
“Before I accept” you say “I want to know what your motivation is, why go to all this trouble just to get me to take this hatchling as a familiar?”“What, an old dragon can’t dote on his something...something...grandchild?” he says innocently. You simply stare at him, as if sensing your skepticism he says “Alright, my most beloved grand-daughter extracted a promise from me that I’d never hurt any of her hatchlings under any circumstances, that I’d do everything I could to protect and nurture them until they grow up, I take my promises seriously” he pauses “And she made me accept a geas spell, the conniving little bitch.”“Alright” you say “I accept”“Very well” he says, “Now take out your cup.” You retrieve the cup from your backpack and he holds forth a dripping digit. You catch the blood in the cup and then slice your arm with a knife to add your own to it. Brearax says some words you don’t understand and you feel magical power swirl around the cup you have in your hands.“Now we wait” says Brearax “For the little hatching to find his way”As you wait you take out the magical items you have and lay them before the old dragon, he sniff them carefully, then licks them, leaving a generous coating of saliva on each one, lovely.“The bracers” he says “boost the wearers strength, though I don’t know how much they will help you young paladin, with your powers.”“The axe is a favoured weapon of the ogre god, called Maw, the devourer, horrible thing. Anyway, the axe is enchanted specially to hurt those smaller than the wielder and champions of good, it has no other powers, nor is it intelligent or likely to corrupt anyone.” He pauses “unless that person has an unhealthy obsession with axes anyway...”
You don’t have to wait long before you hear the cracking of an eggshell and a small, lizard-like head pokes its way out of the acid pool.Scrambling towards you the little dragonling squeaks at you as it approaches, you’re not sure if it’s greeting you or threatening you. It’s about the size of a housecat and it is a dull, wet black in colour.“It’s so tiny” says Bokin in wonder, reaching towards it with one hand, you wave him back, it’s still covered in acid.“Congratulations Paladin” says Brearax, “it’s a >Boy>Girl(pick only 1)
>>33426509Okay, so the Axe is safe for Bokin to use, no problem.>>33426535>Girl
Rolled 2>>334265351 is boy, 2 is girl.
Rolled 2>>334265351=girl 2=boy
>>33426535>Boynot sure why it matters
>>33426560>>33426564Wow.That solved nothing.I'd like to vote that OP just roll a die to decide what it is, because this vote angers me.
>>33426535>BoyGood thing this happened before the Draconic Hatchling act of 835. Nowadays, you can get sued if you get its gender wrong when it's born.
>>33426535>GirlEven though a dark part of me totally wants a dragon husbando
>>33426535>Girl>>33426577MathrianMathrian plsIt's a newbornpls no dracopedo
>>33426574I just want to get it over with, and bitching rarely solves anything. But you are right, we should at least say this is kinda pointless.
Rolled 2>>334265351 is girl, 2 is boy. Wish this was out of player's hands.
>>33426535Do we have the divine ability to choose the gender of all the babies?I say we make all people born in our presence into hermaphrodites, get fetishy up in this joint.
Girl it is, my apologies for upsetting people
>>33426597You know you want its cloaca
>>33426650Either that or paladins are trained to be able to assist with birthing and/or correctly identify genders of all creatures upon birth. Gotta cover all of your bases with this legal stuff when you're a do-gooder, you know.
“You have such a beautiful black hatchling, your parents must be so proud” he sniggers at some private joke. “Now drink, and let the hatchling have some too.”You take a mouthful of the dragon/half-angel blood cocktail, it tastes foul and choking it down is hard. You kneel and offer the cup to the dragonling. It approaches cautiously, sniffing carefully, evidently it likes what it smells and it scampers forwards and jams its muzzle into the cup, slurping loudly. Whilst it’s distracted you take a rag and wipe of as much of the acid covering it as possible.You can feel the blood you swallowed roiling in your gut, or maybe it’s something-PainPainpainpainpainpainpainPAIN-else. You pick yourself up off the floor, Bokin is kneeling next to you, a look of concern on his face, the little dragon is bumping your hand with its head.You can feel the dragon in the back of your head, you can feel it’s curiosity about everything, you can feel its attachment to you, like it always wants to be near you.“It’s done” says Brearax with satisfaction “The two of you are joined, now what was I going to, oh yes, yes, I forgot”“Forgot what?” you say suspiciously“The stronger your powers become” he says “The faster she’ll grow, on her own it could be 50 years before she’s able to speak, with you, ah who knows.”[Gaining dragon powers will speed the dragonlings growth]“You didn’t think we let wizards take our young without a reason, did you?” he asks.“Now, down to the second thing I want you to do.”“What second thing?” you say suspiciously
>>33426725“Kill me” he says simply“Are you mad?” you respond, “I’m not killing you.”“Yes I am” he responds “And yes you are” he gestures around you “Look at this place, this squalor, will you condemn me to another 100 years of suffering, champion of Velya? Do all the lives I took, all the cities I despoiled condemn me to such a fate? Will you not grant me mercy?”“There must be another way” you insist “I can heal you, maybe we can escape-”“No” he shakes his head sadly, “Even free I’d not last more than a few years, I held on as long as I could to rescue the little one, I have no more fight in me, my time is done.”>Alright, Bokin, take the hatchling and leave the room>No, you deserve to suffer for what you’ve done>No, I’m going to save you somehow
>>33426750>Alright, Bokin, take the hatchling and leave the room
>>33426750>Try and pray to Veyla on this matter
>>33426750>Could I not attempt to heal you? A single attempt might not do much because of your size, but it might let me close your wounds in a few days. You would never be as powerful as you once were, but you will be able to walk and fight again, if that is what you want.
>>33426750>Alright, Bokin, take the hatchling and leave the roomIt would take too much time to heal him and he is an evil dragon. We should grant him this final mercy.
>>33426750Also mention our bracer and that we could fully heal him
>>33426815What he wants is to die.He challenged Villarax because he was already starting to feel his age and he wanted to die in a blaze of glory.It has nothing to do with becoming fully healed again, he'd just rather die than fade away, which is what would happen if we healed him.
>>33426750>Alright, Bokin, take the hatchling and leave the roomCaptcha: sin LawashedWash away his sins with the sacrifice of his life.
I'm in a mind granting his request
“Alright, Bokin, take the hatchling and leave the room” you say “but-” he starts to object“Bokin please” you say. He leaves without any further comment.With Bokin carrying the little dragon out of the room, which seems to be whinging at being separated from you, you turn to Brearax. He lays his huge head down on the floor and twists sideways, exposing his throat, one good blow with your halberd should end it.“I’d demand we make a battle of it” he whispers “But the noise would bring the ogres, and I haven’t the energy.”A ruined eyesocket tries to wink at you “But if I were 100 years younger I would make you work so hard for it you’d be limping out of here exhausted and bleeding.”“Any last words?” you askHe ponders for a moment, then says wistfully “I wish I could have eaten one last virgin princess, they tasted the best.”You bring your halberd down into the tender flesh of his throat, the thin faded scales there offering no protection.A torrent of dark blood gushes forth, soaking you and knocking you off your feet, when you regain your footing the blood flow has slowed to a trickle, and you can’t hear Brearax breathing any more. You wait a few moments to ensure that he’s dead and then you leave. May Velya guide his soul to wherever he’s supposed to go.Bokin is waiting outside, holding the hatchling in his hand, you realise you haven’t even named it yet. “Any ideas what to call the little one?” you ask Bokin“Uh” he says thinking “how about Darkness of the Midnight Sky?” Wow, you had no idea the kid was so poetic>Darkness of the Midnight Sky>Rescue>Flamewing (hey, might as well confuse people)>Blackie>Other
>>33426930>Darkness of the Midnight SkyThat's actually a pretty good name for a dragon.'Midnight' as a shortened nickname, though.Captcha: *rkeWsb* CRUMPIt's all ogre.
>>33426930Its adorable. And unless someone has a better name I'm cool with>Darkness of the Midnight Sky
>>33426971Might as well.Midnight is end to the old and beginning to the new day.Let's take the kid(s) out of here. We have places to be.
>>33426930>Darkness of the Midnight Skynickname:>Blackie
>>33426930>OtherEbonsongEbon DawnDawn of EmbersInevitably Successful in All EndeavorsSable Flame
>>33427002>>33426990>>33426971Good?It sounds like one of those shitty hippie names like "Sky Rainbow" or some shit. Let's choose a proper paladin name
>>33426990Heres a good one for a mature/middle aged Midnight or Sky. Which one should we call her?>>33427059Oooh I like Ebonsong...
>>33426930I wonder how this will translate to our being bound to the Horn.Imagine if someone blows the horn in a minor territorial dispute and in answer the sky will split open with lightning and thunder and a colossal black dragon will fly out of the cloud together with a six-winged angel.I don't know about you, but I would have shat myself.
>>33426930Midnight works. It's the darkest hour, but also when things stop getting darker and start getting brighter.
>>33427059Ebonsong is actually a really good name.Changing >>33426971 to Ebonsong>>33427134"It's like we don't even need the other heroes anymore."
Unless anyone objects, Ebonsong it is
>>33427059Keys go with Ebonsong because other choices such. Does "ebon" mean anything?
>>33427162I'm not seeing where the song comes from, but I can live with it.
>>33427249In this context? Black.>google images first pageeh, pretty enough.
>>33427228Can anyone enlighten me as to what the name is supposed to mean or where it derives from? Is it just ebon and song put together?>>33427249ebon "ebony wood, ebony tree," mid-15c.; see ebony. Figurative sense of "dark, black" is from 1590s; in some cases a poetic shortening of ebony.>>33427254song (n.) Old English sang "voice, song, art of singing; metrical composition adapted for singing, psalm, poem," from Proto-Germanic *sangwaz (from PIE *songwh-o- "singing, song," from *sengwh- "to sing, make an incantation" (see sing (v.)).
“I think I’ll call her Ebonsong” you say. Bokin hands Ebonsong over and she settles around your neck like a scaly collar, licking blood off you. The three of you leave the ogre stronghold.You make sure you put plenty of distance between the stronghold and yourselves to make camp. Later that night in your camp, after you’ve washed yourself in the show, and Ebonsong lies asleep on your lap, Bokin turns to you with a troubled look in his eyes as he shuffles into his bedroll, he’s taken his armband off and is now his full size.“Sireyi” he says “Why did you kill Brearax, I mean, he was helpless, isn’t that murder?”Please pick only one>Go to sleep Bokin (do not explain)>It was the best option (lesser of two evils explanation)>He deserved to die, he killed a lot of people himself (justice reasons)>No one should experience what he had, no matter their sins (mercy reason)Bokin looks up to you, what you say to him on certain matters will shape his view of the world.
>>33427377He wished for me to end his life. He would have made sure he dies either way, this way he no longer needed to suffer long. He didn't make the choices easily and thought about it for a long time. I think sometimes people are allowed to decide about their own life.
>>33427377>No one should experience what he had, no matter their sins (mercy reason)Additionally, there was no other option. He was old and dying regardless. I managed to remove a possible great threat to good, gave him as close to the death that he desired as I could, and I gave him peace from his pain.
>>33427377>No one should experience what he had, no matter their sins (mercy reason)>He was suffering, even if he could be healed it would only prolong his suffering, he would despise watching himself age to dust and fade away.>Mercy isn't always nice and gentle.
>>33427377>No one should experience what he had, no matter their sins, and no one should be left to suffer there in that way. (mercy reason)
>>33427377>No one should experience what he had, no matter their sins.
>>33427425samefagging, but given that the other options have a label, I'll dub this>self-determination reason
>>33427526>All these cute dragonsMathrian, please.My heart can't take it.
>>33427606lol >>33427526 actually wasn't me I'll get some more cute dragons for you though
>>33427606This is not cute, this is fearsome waiting to be revealed!
>>33427663This, on the other hand, is quite cute.It's not a dragon though. Dragons can't be cute, no siree.
I am loving the pictures“Murder” you say “No, it was mercy, and respecting his wishes.”“How so?” he asks “I mean, aren’t you supposed to save everyone?”“I wish I could” you say softly “I wish everyone lived happy, peaceful lives with no suffering, but the world doesn’t work like that. Do I regret killing him? Yes, absolutely, but” you stare Bokin in the eyes, trying to impress on him the importance of your point “No one should have to endure what he had, no matter their sins, by killing him, I set him free.”“Further, he had the right to choose his own end” you say “He wished for me to end his life. He would have made sure he dies either way, this way he no longer needed to suffer long. He didn't make the choices easily and thought about it for a long time. I think sometimes people are allowed to decide about their own life.”“Oh” says Bokin thoughtfully, rolling over and going to asleep.Roll Fellowship, 1d20+11

let's put on the braces of strength before we forget about them (unless the bonus does not stack with divine warrior then give them to Bokin)

>>33428010not everyone appreciates this gay furry (scaly, whatever) shit.
>>33428045I say give the giant the bracers just because I want to see what kind of strength he'll have in his giant form.
>>33428066Give it to Bokin then. The axe as well.Also Ebby all grown up.>>33428082Honestly I really don't care one way or another. Its little different to me than any other form of sex/porn/whatever.
>Success[Bokin Loyalty +1]The next morning you wake up with a dragon hatchling curled around your neck. Ebonsong squeaks in protest when you gently unwind her and rise, leaving her in your blankets to keep sleeping.You now have a choice to make, with your new abilities, you won’t be so obvious to the half-demons of the Empire of Drache you could try to find your ‘dark sister’ using the name House Valyenya as a lead, or you could head to the Island of Storms.Whilst you ponder your choice, Bokin comes walking up to you, it looks like he’s made a special effort to brush his clothes clean and straighten his hair. He’s currently in his smaller, 10ft tall form.“I’ve been thinking about what happened in the ogre lair” he says, seems like he’s prepared a speech “and I’ve come to a decision about something” with a sinking feeling you think you can guess where this is going. “You saved me and I owe my life to you.” He goes down on one knee and holds his greatsword out to you in both hands.This had better not be a marriage proposal.1/2
>>33428181“I pledge to serve you always as best as I can” he recites “I will honour and obey you as your faithful knight forevermore.”Oh that’s a relief. Still, he’s just a kid and is rushing into something he may regret. As a member of a noble family you know how knights pledge to lords, you also know that, not holding a title yourself, you cannot swear knights to your service.Under Church law as a Paladin you can accept church soldiers into your service. Of course, both of those depend upon the laws of the Kingdom of Dornmer where you grew up, and you’re not in Dornmer anymore.How do you respond?>Don’t be silly Bokin>I’m not actually allowed to accept such an oath, officially>That’s very thoughtful of you, but I cannot accept>You saved my life too Bokin, I’d say we’re equal>You’re my ally Bokin, of course I’d save your life, and I’d hope you do the same for me>I accept your service Bokin (solemn)>I accept your service Bokin, your first task is to wash the dishes>OtherAnd finally, where do you intend to journey next?>Dark Sister (Empire of Drache) >Island of Storms (along the coast)2/2
>>33428132>Honestly I really don't care one way or another. Its little different to me than any other form of sex/porn/whatever.Then keep that shit too yourself. Internet is full of dragon porn and erotica, don't pollute this quest with your personal fetishes.

>>33428536Your choices would be3 non-N spells for 1XP (1XP -2XP)or4 N spells for 1XP (1XP -3XP)Mixing and matching N and non-N spells is not permitted, harsh I know, but it's only 1XP.The reason for non-mixing is to keep the book-keeping math simple.
Blah, apologies, only just realised.Sanctuary Paladin power added to rules pastebin, sorry if this screws up peoples plans.
>>33428474I have seen quests damaged, even destroyed, by sex and fetishes. Stop raising the topic, especially out of the blue.>>33428628And you calm down. You are not gonna make him stop by being even more obnoxious.
>>33428685But there aren't four N spells in first level...>>33428715That power is definitely on my 'get in the future' list, but it doesn't change anything for now.Since it's not discounted by FoV, we'd need to sacrifice angel magic 2 to get it.
>>33428715That power looks pretty awesome. I recommend investing in it.
>>33428723>pic related>>33428723Alright anon, I'll keep that in mind. I apologize. As its not a fetish for me or something that disturbs me I tend to find all the angst surrounding it amusing. But I apparently that is quite bothersome to some people and I'd prefer not to help cause a shitstorm with a joke.
>>33428474That spell purchase list is invalid due to >>33428685I'd also like to ask that Sorceror Magic L2 be added to the list of things we're getting with SXP.It costs 6.>>33428826Yeah, but in order to get it right now we'd need to skip over Angel's Magic 2, which would rob us of an additional discounted XP off all the magic spells we're buying immediately.
>>33428763>Since it's not discounted by FoVWow I just cannot stop screwing up today.It is supposed to be a Favoured of Velya ability (rules updated)
>>33428869Well shit... How are we supposed to buy 4N spells if theres only 3 at level one?I'll second the Socerer Magic L2
“You saved my life too Bokin, I’d say we’re equal” you remind him.“Ah, yes, well, thank you anyway” he says, getting back to his feet “You’re welcome” you say “and thank you too.”“Where are we going now?” he asks.“It’s time to visit the Island of Storms I think” you say.As the two of you travel through the mountains, it’s going to be 2 weeks before you get to the coast. You’ve noticed that as big and strong as Bokin is, he’s just a kid, and hasn’t had proper military training.Perhaps it’s best if you spent some time teaching him a few things...about combat.Please pick only 2>Train Bokin in melee combat>Train Bokin in Halberd combat>Train Bokin in increasing his Agility>Train Bokin in increasing his Strength>Train Bokin in increasing his Constitution>Encourage Bokin to develop his magical abilities – maybe he’ll get an ‘ice armour’ spell or something.>No training
>>33428871I'd still rather get Blessed Health for the moment.Sanctuary doesn't seem amazingly useful at first level and I'd prefer to not have to worry about diseases.I'm kinda worried the situation on IoS will be some sort of horrible plague.>>33428937I dunno, I guess we just don't get to have those spells.Or we have to waste that potential 4th N spell.WHICH IS HERESY!
>>33428963>Train Bokin in melee combat>Encourage Bokin to develop his magical abilities – maybe he’ll get an ‘ice armour’ spell or something.Kid needs an Armor Class and he doesn't use a halberd.This is us teaching him skills that he will be investing XP in, right?
>>33428963>Train Bokin in melee combat>Encourage Bokin to develop his magical abilities – maybe he’ll get an ‘ice armour’ spell or something.>>33428964Oh god. Thats a good point. Last thing we want is to get destroyed by some random disease. And yeah, lets not waste a potential spell if at all possible. Anyway, I got to take my fiancee to a doctors appointment so I might not be able to vote and shit. Hopefully it wont be a problem.
>>33428963>Train him in melee combat>Encourage him to develop his magical abilities>>33428964Single rank of blessed health won't help with magical plagues anyway though.
>>33428999Yes, I'll handle the book-keeping but you can guide him in certain directions>>33429012Quest is wrapping up in next 2 hours Mathrian.Next one is due 12-noon tomorrow (14 hours from now)I hope your fiancee is ok.Don't worry, the dance thing will be up by the time you get back.
>>33429012Okay, so.Before we get to spending our remaining SXP on spells due to *spell buying URGH*, let's finalize everything else.>Blessed Health -2 PXP -1 GXP >Divine Energy +3 -3 AXP>Angel's Magic -1 AXP -7 GXP>Sorceror Magic L2 -6 SXPDoes anyone have objections?>>33429036Who said it would be magical?At this point, a mundane plague could come out of nowhere and completely fuck us.Probably screw over most ordinary people and be less expensive to just throw a billion mundane plagues at a problem kingdom than manufacture a magical one.
hypothetically speaking, what would a paladin of the goddess of joy to fall? cause immense amounts of sadness?
>>33429070Fair enough and might as well. No objections here.
>>33429136So far?Killing innocents, executing prisoners, generally severe breaches of paladin code.I don't think being the hero the world needs by making tough decisions that make a large amount of people unhappy would result in us falling.OP always says 'choosing this will force a roll to not fall' before we do something that might cause it, so don't worry too much.
>>33429070Which leaves us with 4 SXP for Spells.Sounds great to me. >>33429057Don't worry I'll be there. Its more than worth sleeping like ~4 hours a night.Thanks Pally. I expect she'll be okay. We are worried it might be Bronchitis or something but its unlikely to be anything major.Awesome, I'm looking forward to it.>>33429136I was saving this picture for something darker but I found a great picture for that.
You decide to teach Bokin how to fight in melee, and encourage him to develop him magical abilities.As you approach the coast you are heading down hill out of the mountains you spot a couple of things.Firstly, in the distance, on the horizon you can see the an island with a storm cloud nearby – if that’s not the Island of Storm, you’ll eat your halberd. It’s about 20 miles distant from your current location, but maybe 15 from the coastline, you could probably teleport yourself and Bokin over, but getting closer wouldn’t hurt.[Note: Ebonsong can teleport with you at no extra cost, as your familiar, for most beneficial magical effects she counts as being part of you, as long as the two of you are touching]Secondly, you can see a large port town on the coast, with ships of all sizes there. Maybe you won’t need to teleport there.You notice the flags flying above the town are the same as those used by the demon army from the mountains. The Empire of Drache.Maybe you will need to teleport there.It’s currently mid-morning and the town is only a few miles away, you could easily get there before midday.Roll willpower please, 1d20+4, and then we vote on options (may change as a result of willpower roll)
Rolled 11 + 4>>33429356Maybe we should teleport there.
Rolled 5 + 4>>33429356
Rolled 2 + 4>>33429356>Captcha roomess wasWell captcha says we should get a room... I think thats a terrible idea
Rolled 15 + 4>>33429356I have a bad feeling about this.
>>33429356We were explicitly warned that going to the empire too soon would result in us dying or being kept as a 'trophy'.And by trophy I mean demon rape-slave.
>>33429442Actually no. Charging into empire to challenge a head demon would result in us dying. Trophy thing was staying with the giants.
>>33429482Yeah, but do you really want to take either of those risks?Death or rape-slave?Not really good fates, there.We also might be powerful enough now that we don't die immediately and get taken prisoner instead.What I'm saying is that we should not go into that town without a *very* good reason.
>>33429536We are a paladin, taking risks to fight evil is what we do. And we have passable disguise now on top of that hat. Still, let's see what OP has in store.
>Success (just)With your newly-developed magical powers, you would not normally be able to sense this over such a great distance.But storms are totally your thing.That storm is magical, and more importantly it feels...protective to you, like it's on guard, ready to attack anything that gets near the island.You're not sure if it will (or can) affect your ability to Ride the Lightning.Maybe it won't see you as a threat, maybe it will.Maybe it can't block (or divert) your teleportation, maybe it can. Who can say for sure?All you know is: it's magic, it's guarding the island, it's a storm.Choices, choices>Ride The Lightning from here (20 miles)>Ride The Lightning from the coast (15 miles)>Go to the town (in disguise, obviously)>Other
>>33429070There appears to be no objections to these XP purchases, so I'm adding them to the character sheet.
>>33429621>in disguisethat means we use the dragon-form to hide our energies and look like we have demonblood, right?
>>33429621I'm going to posit that the storm is defending against evil aligned creatures more than anything. Therefore we should be fine to teleport in. If people aren't willing to take the risk I totally understand>Ride The Lightning from here (20 miles)
>>33429621Well how the fuck are we supposed to get in?>Take flight and approach the island. Fly high to not be detected, maybe we can garner more information from closer distance.
>>33429692I'm the guy that was paranoid about the town being OP's magical realm, but if we can use dragon-form to get a near-perfect disguise...I kinda want to see what life is like in Drache.>>33429703RTL is teleporting.We would teleport onto the island, through the storm.
>>33429730Yeah, the storm seems angry, angry about demons presumably. That's why I want to fly closer, to see if we can sense more about it.
>>33429666yup, with Bokin either waiting outside, or using the Hat to pretend to be an ogre (you saw the Army using ogre mercenaries)Flying closer to the storm is an option, yes. In fact with your speed it wouldn't take long at all.
OK, so, spells. I'm going to start with level two, because fuck all of you for me having to be the one to do this:-2 SXP>Arcane Sight>Scrying>Dimension Door>Dispel MagicI think sticking mostly to utility spells would be best for our first bunch of spellsNow for L1 (fuck you all):>Identify (Using unidentified loot: not even once)>Speed (In case we need to flee on foot)>Alarm (to avoid being ambushed while we recover DE)L1 N spells:>Shining Scales>Thunderclap>Suffer Not The HereticAlso, just saying OP, making us partially waste XP because of our discount being too huge is a little bit infuriating and heretical.All would be forgiven, under the condition that if you add any new L1 N spells in the future, we can spend the 'wasted' piece of XP to get one of our choice for free.If anyone has any spells they'd prefer instead of certain ones in either level, please object so we can discuss the relative merits of the spells.
>>33429962>All would be forgiven, under the condition that if you add any new L1 N spells in the future, we can spend the 'wasted' piece of XP to get one of our choice for free.I agree to your terms sir
>>33429962No objections here.
>>33429962Those sound great anon. I'm in complete agreement. I thank you for your sacrifice. God Dammit I hate posting from a phone
Since the only firm choice people are discussing seems to be go out and greet the storm in person. I'll do that if there's no objections in the next few minutes.I'll leave it for a bit in case folk are too busy reading spells n'shit.
>>33430093Go take care for your girl, dude.
>>33430134As long as we get a chance to explore town before we're locked into this quest.I *really* want to see what life is like in Drache, it's starting to become an obsession.
Since we bought scrying, should we scout the place we will teleport to first? Wouldn't want to teleport to a busy market
So, anyone be mad if I said that L2 Dragon-form is the first ability I think we should get next time we get XP and the sole reason I want it is because muh fluff-dragon?Well, also those other things it does, but mainly because fluff-dragon.
>>33430355Don't use the abilites responsibly, dammit.That's no fun at all.Also:>Average day in marketplace of last human kingdom in a world oppressed by demons>SUDDENLY AN ANGEL OF GOD APPEARS IN A FLASH OF LIGHT AND THUNDER
>>33430363fluff-dragon? You mean so that our familiar grows faster?We need to level our sorcery so that we can break the barrier on our own but leveling up our familiar has its own perks.>>33430394Do we really need that kind of attention? For all we know the island has spies from the demon empire.
Leaving Ebonsong with Bokin you fly out over the waters, heading for the island. As you get close, within a few miles, part of the stormcloud breaks off and heads in your direction.Moving quickly, it interposes itself between you and the island. This close you get the feeling that the storm isn’t hostile to you, but nonetheless it is keeping itself between you and the island.You can see a sizeable settlement on the island, people going about their business, and fishing boats floating close to the island, none of them seem bothered by the constant storm nearby.Maybe it only attacks demons, or people wanting to harm the place?You could fly back to the mainland, try to use your speed to get around this little stormcloud, force your way past it using your storm powers or approach slowly, focusing on being friendly and non-threatening.>Go back to the mainland>Go fast around it>Force my way in>Approach non-threateningly>Other
>>33429962No objections seen, so adding these spells
>>33430420>>OtherLets try teleporting alone, if it works, go back for Bokin and Ebony. Wouldn't want to risk them being harmed before we know that teleporting is safe or not.Trying to get on the island any other way is waste of time even if it works, as we will need to teleport Bokin and Ebony anyway.
>>33430417I meant fluff-dragon more in reference to:>your wings may look like the wings of an angel or a black dragon, or a combination of both>combination of bothAnd the fact that it might affect the other draconic parts that manifest.Ergo, we would be a fluff-dragon when transformed.>>33430420>Approach non-threateninglyIf this doesn't work, we teleport in, all of us.Because fuck you, cloud.>>33430459It's finally ogre.>>33430481It costs 1 DE per mile, so 1 DE in, 1 DE out.20 DE to teleport from the town, 5 to bring Bokin, none for Ebby.We have 26 DE total, so we'd be one short.

Rolled 13 + 3>>33430588Hello storm, will you let me through due to muh heritage?
You approach the storm slowly, trying to appear as non-threatening as possible. Your own personal stormcloud doesn’t move and you slowly glide straight through it,It lets you pass without attacking you.You fly over the island and you can see a large town surrounding a castle set high upon a hill.No one in the town seems to notice you, but as you approach the castle you see a score of archers with arrows ready, though they haven’t drawn their bows yet,On the battlements next to them is an older man in courtiers robes, he shouts up at you.“Who are you and what business do you have here? If you do not land and submit to the authority of her Royal Highness Sofia of House Jalweyen then we will be forced to consider you hostile.”Method of conversation?>Land>Talk at a distance>Leave >OtherAnd what do you say?>I’m Sireyi, Paladin of Velya>I mean no harm>I wish to meet with the Princess of Jalweyen>Other
>>33430838>LandWe do not have VTOL.Do we?>I’m Sireyi, Paladin of Velya>I mean no harm
>>33430838Land and introduce ourselves, naturally.
>>33430838>>Land>I’m Sireyi, Paladin of Velya>I wish to meet with the Princess of Jalweyen
You land on the battlements, near the courtier, holding up your hands to show you mean no harm.“I’m Sireyi, Paladin of Velya” you say “I mean no harm, I wish to meet with the Princess of Jalweyen”The old man chews his lip thoughtfully before asking“What is a Paladin? Who is Velya? What are you? And why do you want to see the Princess?”Oh, those old chestnuts...>A paladin is...(explain)>Velya is...(explain)>I’m a half-angel>I believe I can help the princess>I believe the princess can help me>OtherAround you the archers watch you, but make no aggressive moves.

>>33431100no, the dragon form dosnt have wings
“A Paladin is a champion of a god.” You say “Velya is my goddess, lady of joy and happiness, and I'm a half-angel”. He stares at you as though you’re making no sense at all.“I believe Princess can help me, and perhaps I can help her as well.” You say calmly.“Hmm, you are a strange one” he says “I think it best if you do meet the princess, she will be able to see if you hide any evil or treachery in your heart. Now you can only approach her under guard, she is too valuable to risk, and you must surrender your weapon” he indicates the halberd strapped to your back.>I don’t need to see the princess>I’ll see the princess ‘with’ my weapon>Ok (surrender weapon)>Other
>>33431189>Alright.Let's not tell them that the halberd is the least dangerous weapon in our arsenal.
>>33431055>>33431133Sounds good. Activate the halo when we do this
>>33431189>>Ok (surrender weapon)
>>33431189>Hand the weapn overit's not like it's the main reason why we're dangerous anyway
>>33431189>okLike it really makes a difference lol
“Very well” you say, unslinging your halberd and offering it to him. A guardsman steps forward to take it.“Follow me this way” says the courtier. Leading you down the stairs and across the courtyard into the castle proper. As he does so a dozen armed guardsmen accompany you, including the one carrying your Halberd. They stick very close to you.When you walk under the portcullis into the castle, you sense it. You can’t believe you didn’t sense it before, your panicking mind can only rationalise it that it must have been warded before and you just stepped across the ward. The gatehouse roof is overhead and you can no longer see the sky.Up ahead, coming from the main castle building is the strongest evil you’ve ever sensed in your entire life.Its wonder this place hasn’t fallen into Hell. It’s a wonder your skull hasn’t split under the pressure. It’s only a single signature of evil, coming from somewhere deep in the castle but it’s terrifying.You sense....true evil (Evil, Magic, Demon, Demon Lord, Death, Slavery, Tyranny, Necromancy, Domination, Pain, Torture, Corruption, Sadism, ???, ???, ???)The courtier, and the soldiers around you, seem completely unfazed by it and march onwards, with you in their midst.What have you gotten yourself into?Thread end. Thank you for playing. See you in 12 hours.Next....non-canon stuff.
>>33431189> Other"Good site,I must object to bring deprived of my weapon. Times are dark and many with noble titles hold might but treachery in their hearts. I will permit you to peace bind it but not confiscate it. If this is not acceptable, then I can buy regret the boon you have deprived your sovereign of.
>>33431482Finally, a worthy adversary!
>>33431482Well crap. Was worried something like that would happen
>>33431482Well, guess we found the 'great evil'.Only question now, whose life will we have to sacrifice to prevent it from escaping?I know that we're going to try and solve this in a no-sacrifices make-our-own-fate kind of way, but I want to be sure we're all on the same page:If it comes down to it, letting an evil so terrible that even our Detect Evil can't identify the extent of it's vile deeds go is not happening, no matter what.

The following events are non-canon.A 'what might have been'.You visited the Dropped Cloth in disguise, whilst looking for Trader (Smuggler) Jisan.But what if you had visited in your natural form.....Inside the tavern are three long stages with tables lined up alongside each one. At the end of each stage a long metal pole runs from the floor of the stage up to the ceiling.This early in the day there are only a few patrons, and only 1 woman dancing on a stage, she looks like she's new - she keeps missing steps and the few patrons don't seem too interested. At this point she still has all of her clothes on.You ask one of the serving girls about the owner of the establishment and a few minutes later a very fat woman wearing far too much make-up and far too many rings on her fingers and through her ears comes out to see you."Yes, yes!" She exclaims as she catches sight of you "I can see why you came to see Mama Sallie. Child I can make you a star! That hair, those hips, that skin, those breasts, and those wings!" She ushers you into a office "Here's how it will work, we'll start you off as a once a week exotic act whilst you get used to the dances and before the years end you'll be headlining the shows.""For private ah...performances you'll service only the wealthiest clients, and only those known to be pox-free.">I’m looking for Trader Jisan"Oh well, yes he's here quite often, but he's a private man." A crafty look enters her eyes "I couldn't possibly draw trouble down on him, unless of course you were one of my girls, I look after my girls.">I can pay youIgnoring the money you offer she changes tactics. "Alright, no permanent contract just a single dance, come back tonight and do a single dance and I'll give him to you on a silver plate, I'll have a girl lure him into a private room so you can talk to him. We'll put you in a mask and a few wires on those wings so it looks like a costume, no one will know it’s you."
>>33431642We'll act according to circumstances. However I see your eagerness to lay down innocent lives in the name of "greater good" as troublesome.
>If you agreeHow did you get talked into this? Some of the other girls show you some moves that afternoon and that evening you are ready to perform.There’s a large and raucous crowd in the Dropped Cloth this evening. Even backstage you can hear the explicit comments and one girl coming back to the changing room from her set is wiping beer off her naked body and complaining. Well, nothing to be done now, best get out on stage.Alright, if you’re going to dance, how will you do it?>Nervous/Shy, this is embarrassing>Grit teeth, just follow the dance moves and get through it.>Throw Your Hips into it, if I’m going to dance, might as well have fun
>Nervous/Shy, this is embarrassingYou start slow and nervous, moving down the stage quietly, an ethereal vision of perfection. The wall of noise hits you and you feel everyone’s eyes on you as your pale cheeks flame red. You start to dance and the noise subsides as you captivate the audience.Despite the strident music you move slowly and gracefully, dancing your way through the moves you have been taught with hesitant, delicate perfection.As the room falls silent you gather your courage and approach the pole at the end of the stage, holding it with one hand and then the other as you slide smoothly around it. As you twist around the pole you move higher up it, using your wings to cheat a little, then you leap away from the pole, gliding back down to the stage, ending in a crouch, your arms drawn around you protectively, a timid expression on your face as your wings mantle, trying and failing to cover your semi-nude body.The crowd is silent for a moment more and then bursts into noise, cheers, tears of joy, demands for an encore, claims of undying love and religious hysteria. You head back stage, thankful that it’s over.Before you leave on your ship you hear rumours of an angel appearing in a seedy tavern in the city has inspired dozens of copycat dances, it seems every showgirl in the city is now looking for a good pair of fake wings. On the dock front several artists are hawking paintings of the ‘Angel of Love’. They’re not very good, your hips aren’t that wide, nor are your nipples that shade of pink.Hopefully they’ll have forgotten you by the time you return.
>Grit teeth, just follow the dance moves and get through it.You just decide to grin and bear it, you move through the dance moves you have been taught with grim precision, ignoring the explicit comments and suggestions from the audience, finally, feeling slightly soiled, you head backstage.>Throw Your Hips into it, if I’m going to dance, might as well have funYou decide to go all out. You stalk onto stage like a predator, your wings high above you. Walking down the stage like you own the place you move through your dance set with real gusto, using your assets to your advantage.The crowd is very appreciative, cheering you on and throwing coins on stage. As you jiggle and gyrate you make full use of the pole, curling around it like a lover and teasing the crowd with what your athletic body is capable of, if only you were in a more...intimate setting.For your finale you drop to your knees, one hand on the pole is all that’s keeping you upright as you slowly lean over backwards until you are supine on the stage, writhing as you lay down.One man near the stage, who is a little too old to be in the Dropped Cloth, cries out with tears in his eyes “I have seen perfection!” before slumping to the floor. Nearby patrons check if he is still alive and, once satisfied he’s dead, check his pockets for money.To cries of pleasure, cries for an encore, and one man removing his trousers and throwing them on stage, you leave, breathing heavily and feeling oddly hot for some reason.Now that all assumes good dance (Fellowship) rolls, a failure would have you booed off stage and a critfail...
>>33431693It's not eagerness, I don't *want* to do such a thing and I'm willing to go to extreme lengths to avoid it.I *wish* we could do this without the sacrifice of innocents, but life is rarely so ideal.If it comes down to a choice between the life of a single innocent and the lives of everyone on the Island of Storms, I would choose the people.
CritfailAs you move through your dance routine you lean a little too close to the crowd and an errant hand snags on your tiny costume, with a horrible tearing noise the whole thing comes off, revealing your....everything to the crowd. Your impromptu nakedness elicits a very positive reaction from the crowd as you flee backstage in embarrassment, your wings wrapped protectively around you. The guards quickly grab the person the hand is attached too and throw him out.Party Reactions (if present)Staring up at you, all thoughts of watching for Trader Jisan forgotten, Isla seems to be having trouble breathing, her chest moving up and down and her cheeks are flushed. After a long silent struggle she rushes to the ladies water closet. Perhaps she had too much to drink?Initially splitting her attention between watching for Jisan and the crowd, Jianxi’s attention is drawn more and more to you. As you complete your finale, she is oblivious to anything but you, her eyes locked on you, her head turning to follow you as you move, like a mouse frozen before a snake. Her cheeks burning she realises what she’s doing once the show is over and makes a show of adjusting her clothes, before fading back into the crowd.Matthias initially plays the part of lecher well, cheering you on with suggestive comments. As your dance progresses he gets quieter and quieter, until his face is a frozen mask. At the climax of your dance he’s sat with his legs crossed and gripping his beer mug so hard he’s crushing it. As you head backstage you see a damp stain on the front of his pants. He shouldn’t have held that mug so hard; he must have spilt his beer on himself. End
>>33431763>he must've spilt his beer on himself.I don't think that's beer...
