Welcome ladies and gentlemen to another edition of Succubus Lord Quest!Last time on Succubus Lord Quest, you met up with the rest of the Subota’s: Wendy and Luna respectively. While Wendy seemed to be the picture perfect example of what one could see in a Succubus and Okarian in general, Luna was the very bastion of irresponsibility. Out for months adventuring and only informing the family she was pregnant with Oksana’s first granddaughter when she showed up, in the second trimester no less.After the meeting at the library, you decided to head off to visit your uncle and your sister. After ‘talking’ to your uncle about going to Hawaii instead of joining Dio’s army, you and your sister had a small talk, which led to the unveiling that you were a succubus. While you kept the information of the Queen’s hidden from her, she tended to take the news as she always did: Immediately pointing out any and all negatives.We now continue from where we left off!Also the second post was an ugly post with lots of eyesore text, which is now all compiled here!https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Um4gk-JN4CHFJJdQrJjfbzg6Q8FHcmfxP8sRDhaf-FI
[1/2]“Oh so not only are you tall, but you also have an hourglass figure, a plump ass, and are taller than me, but you also got cow udders!?” Excel says pulling on your wings.“AH! I-I don’t know! In fact I hate the breasts just as much as you do! They get in the way all the time and I hate how they jiggle with every step!” you protest as pain shoots through your body.“Really?” Excel asks, loosening the grip.“...Well they are pretty sensitive, so they do pretty good whenever I’m having se-”“THAT’S IT! I’M RIPPING THEM OFF!” Excel says putting her on her back.The next bit of your visit consists of only screams of pain and pleading before being used as a dress-up doll for some clothes that Excel wanted to buy for her friends.******You wake up the next morning, briefly wondering what you should do. The thoughts of an upcoming Succubus Rebellion both excite you, but at the same time very much frighten you. This is going to be the first major step for liberating the Succubus race, but at the same time you feel a nervous lump in your stomach. You have no idea how this is going to unfold, the very prospect of responsibility on this scale makes you a bit queasy. Not only that, but you’ve been very lucky so far with your battles. With you now trying to tackle the bigger players, the idea of losing people close to you seems much less or an idea and more of an uncertain reality now.“...I’m going out to buy some teas.” you mutter as you climb out of bed, figuring that it would be best to get your mind off such things temporarily.
[2/2]“Yes ma’am, this tea is mainly a ginger extract with a tiny hint of peppermint inside of it. Perfect for sharing with friends for Christmas!” the tea stall salesmen says, his voice raised in order to be overheard from the cacophony of noise that is also generated by the market in the morning.“Oooo... That I like. Can I smell it?” you ask the shopkeep.“By all means yes!” the shopkeeper says opening the tea jar for you.(“Pardon for the intrusion, lady Brooklyn Browning.”) a female voice in your head says.Who are you and how long have you been looking into my head?(“A thousand pardons Lady Browning. I am merely an Ayarian messenger named Jennifer, and I meant to do this meeting while you were sleeping last night, but I was unable to remotely locate you.”) the female voice replies.That’s because I warded sleeping location, and the sounds of things the ward is working. What’s your message?(“I come on behalf of the current Ayarian Leader Jennifer and the Subota’s. They wish to seek an audience with you inside of the library as soon as possible.”) the Ayarian tells you.And are part of your orders to keep an eye on me as I head there?(“Oh no, I’m just a messenger milady. I try to avoid conflict whenever possible.”) the Ayarian replies. (“Should I inform the Subota’s and the Ayarian leader that you’re on your way?”)“Well milady, shall I begin bagging some of this tea for you?” the tea salesmen in front of you asks. During the mental conversation, you forgot to sniff the tea.(“It smelled quite good, so I’d say it would be a good deal to go for the tea milady.”) they Ayarian replies....You can hijack senses too!?(What do you say?)
>>33451267"Very well."Make sure to use space control to give our pet her orders about the Greed Demon.
>>33451236>The next bit of your visit consists of only screams of pain and pleading before being used as a dress-up doll for some clothes that Excel wanted to buy for her friends....sigh...
>>33451463While I'm not exactly thrilled we got steamrolled by her again, I'm personally more concearned by the fact that we didn't get a chance to shove her through a portal to fort hope.
>>33451517I wanted to confirm the DP spending. AS of last thread Brooklyn didn't know portals, but since no objections were raised, I made him do some off screen training before we went to bed.
>>33451557Okay. Guess that works. Do try to tone down the steamrolling though.
>>33451604Hey, some of us like steamrolling.
>>33451636And a lot of us don't, at least when the players don't get any input.
>>33451676I see that. The way the talk between Brooklyn and Excel was ended just seems strange and whiplashyBrooklyn should use some suggestion magic to get her to calm down at least. It seems pretty straightforward.
>>33451676>a lot of us don't,I that's exaggeration. At least when considering some harmless humorous stuff.
>>33451636I personally find it rather annoying, if only because of the number of times Sand's been asked to cut down on it.
>>33451729>Brooklyn should use some suggestion magic to get her to calm down at least. It seems pretty straightforward.No I actually don't like that. Using manipulative magic to control your own sibling for some minor stuff? That is a slippery slope and rather abuse of the power.
>>33451730Not really, there's a pretty solid block that's rather against it, at least applied to brooklyn
>>33451676You're getting a little to upset over something currently being used for comedic effect.
>>33451758No it's not. The magic is not corrupt in and of itself. As long as it's used for the right reasons, it's equivalent as any other harmless form of manipulation like using white lies or compliments to set someone at ease.
>>33451787>a pretty solid block>a lot of us don't,same thing. Anyway, this is kinda not relevant now. So i'll just leave it at that.
>>33451787And there's a pretty solid block of people who are annoyed at your block of people.
>>33451848>the magic is not corrupt in and of itself.Well duh, that wasn't my point or concern.Rather you shouldn't use magic to manipulate people for rather minor things. Or even use white lies/compliment to do the same.Excel wasn't doing anything dangerous, or her actions wouldn't have changed anything.It was just a comedic moment. Like you would see in an anime or something. It doesn't affect anything and it's kinda a part of this quest (as Sand seems to like those).
“Very well. I’ll take a pound.” you say ordering a bulk collection of tea.(“Very well, I’ll inform them that you’re on your way now.”) the Ayarian says before her voice cuts off.After taking your tea, you decide to check up on how your current pet is doing. Ducking into a nearby alleyway for a brief moment, you trace out a small window as you attempt to gain access to your little pet Amelia. As you look through the window, you can see them trekking through what is currently a sewer in Old TO, where exactly you don’t know.“Ugh... There’s only mud and frozen mud here.” a female dwarf in armour mutters to herself.“Yes, but this is all for the best. Our comrade has a point. If the Succubi are indeed going to be attacking the Pride Demon forces, then the only thing standing in our way are going to be the Greed demons.” a Dragonborn Paladin wearing silver armour replies.“And with that, the armies of Celestia should be able to move into the city, spreading gospel and salvation to all!” Amelia replies merrily.Hm... You’re not sure what to think of this. While your viewing windows don’t allow sound to transmit, you could sneak a personal note into Amelia’s bag rather easily.A) Be angry with Amelia about the idea of Celestian armies matching in Old TO.B) Cut her some slack. This was probably the only way she could convince them.C) Other
>>33451947>B) Cut her some slack. This was probably the only way she could convince them.But still promise that you will have to "punish" her.
>>33451906Maybe. Kinda irrelevant now, just wanted to remind op that its a bit of a controversial topic
>Space control (GOOD)>PortalSo, theoretically, we can scry queens shrine and make an instant portal there, right? So if wanted to give them a "snack" or send someone for conversion, we could just do it? No need to track through snowstorms.
>>33451947>B) Cut her some slack. This was probably the only way she could convince them.
>>33451938>Rather you shouldn't use magic to manipulate people for rather minor things.Why not? As long as it's not used maliciously it's the same as any other kind of manipulation. Which gets done by everyone all the time, including Brooklyn and everyone in the real world. And Brooklyn SHOULD do it more to Excel, so she calms down.>Excel wasn't doing anything dangerous, or her actions wouldn't have changed anything.Irrelevant.
>>33451947Tell them they can focus on spreading their religion once the pride, and greed demons are taken care of, and that the pride and greed demons, are far too large of a threat to their efforts to be met with less then full force.
>>33451938Honestly sandact sshould just have someone other Brooklyn play the building of antics everyone still has their fun.
>>33451947Bshe seems to be doing fine
>>33452040The shrine is immune to scrying magics.You can however just make a portal to the building the shrine is under very easily though.Reason: One wouldn't know about the building unless they knew about the shrine as well, as for all intents and purposes it's a broken down Old World building.
>>33452224So wait. We actually COULD just take Excel there right now? We didn't need to go through with the whole "please move out of town so you're safe" and "I can't tell you now, you'll see in a few months" stuff?
>>33452246Yes.You'd need to feed the Queen's, but yes.Remember that Excel has to agree to it of her own free will however. If you use magic to make her agree, then the ritual won't work.Also, a bit off topic, but this is high level light magic in action:http://www.theonion.com/video/deadly-super-rainbow-tears-through-west-coast,36464/
>>33452064>And Brooklyn SHOULD do it more to Excel, so she calms down.I guess we should agree to disagree. I don't want to argue points of morality and will just have to let the votes decide.
>>33452314I don't see any problem with Excel agreeing. She pretty much jumped at the chance and even revealed she'd fantasized about it before.Feeding the queens... Eh, it wasn't THAT big of a problem before.We could just drop down and do it now. Depending on how the library stuff goes and how much time we have I guess.
>>33452246>"please move out of town so you're safe" and "I can't tell you now, you'll see in a few months"that is why I actually voted for the upgrade to space control and asked Sand for the clarification.Now we just need to find food for the ayarian queen. Some unlucky Pride Demon's human soldiers would do.
>>33452404Doesn't seem to be a shortage of those in town.
[1/2]You decide to cut Amelia a tiny bit of slack. This is probably the only way she could’ve convinced her teammates, but it doesn’t mean that you won’t be ‘punishing’ her for it later.“I’ll write a note at the library about that.” you say closing the remote viewing window and heading on your way.******Once you arrive in the library, your card is once again confiscated for ‘overdue’ late charges. Once again you’re whisked up to the upper floors of the library, walking through the halls before arriving at the living Subota’s room again.Only instead of the three of them, this time it’s a virtual collection of Succubi in the room. A rainbow of hair colours, varying forms of dress, and voices of nearly every pitch fill the room. There’s what appears to be an Okarian chef in the kitchen using fire control and floating cooking instruments to make food on Old World cooking appliances, all while a map of Old TO to New TO is laid out on the big screen in the back of the room.“I thought only leaders were allowed in here.” you mutter to yourself.“Ah, Lady Brooklyn, you’ve arrived.” Wendy says walking up next to you. “But I made an exception. In times of dire stress I can lift the rules about only allowing Okarians into the library without too much strife.”“Without too much?” you ask.“I’ve already gotten several complaints about Okarians seeing non-Okarians in the library.” Wendy replies.“I’m sure there’s a dozen things we need to address, but let’s start with the basics first.” you reply.“Yes, let’s head to a more private area.” Wendy says leading you out to the noise filled living room and out onto a balcony overlooking the entire library. “It’s so... quiet out here.” you reply before looking down over the railing, seeing the many, many floors of the library before it hits the bottom. “Are you sure this place is secure?”
[2/3]“Mary put a ban on sound here. We can speak without anyone overhearing.” Wendy asks.“How’d Luna put up with Oksana being back?” you ask.“They argued for nearly the entire night. The only brief pause was when Luna got irritated with asking me to cast the ritual so often until she finally demanded that I teach it to her.” Wendy replies, looking down over the railing. “She tried to use her space magic to both locate mother and tear open a portal to her, but was furious when it didn’t work. It makes me feel a little more secure that if Luna couldn’t do it, the Pride Demon’s shouldn’t be able to as well.”“How did Oksana take news of her grandchild?” you ask.“She was both happy and furious at the same time. I overheard Luna saying that while the child was an accident, it was far from being unwelcome. Mother basically railed on her about that for hours. I didn’t expect my sister to be pregnant, because that changes our plans a bit.” Wendy admits.“How so?” you ask.
[3/3]Wendy looks down over the side, just giving out a heavy sigh. “Brooklyn, Luna is carrying my niece right now, and unplanned or not, I’m very happy that our family finally has a new member. It’s just... the timing of all of this.”“You mean how she’s going to fight Dis.” you proclaim.“Murphy’s law shows it’s ugly head towards us. Luna is probably the only one of us who can actually stall out Dis long enough for our other forces to attack. I don’t mind sending my sister out to attack, but when she’s carrying our niece I... I... Shit!” Wendy screams out, loosing her cool as a cloud of darkness manifests around her, tentacles forming to crush the metal safety railings. “I’d go out there and rip Dis and the entire army myself apart if I could! But no! I’m bound to a... stupid promise made by a perverted Greed Demon who wants nothing more than a wife and knowledge! I want out! I want out of this god damn prison, but at the same time I have to put my own family in serious danger in order to have a chance to be free!”Wendy at this point only begins to sob, tears falling down over the railing as the darkness aura around her recedes.
>>33453019Hug her.That's all I got.
“Ssshhh... There there...” you say walking over to her and giving her a small hug. “I can’t imagine the stress you’ve been under. I would’ve gone insane from being trapped here, let alone managing the Okarians. But there’s a light at the end of your tunnel Wendy. It may be a bit bumpy, but the light is certainly there.”Wendy sniffles as she wipes her nose, before finally returning the hug. “Thanks Brooklyn, that means a lot to me.”“How’s Mary doing?” you ask.“A few epi-pens and her allergy is gone, but now the slower poison has taken effect. I’ve got a dedicated healer next to her 24/7. Luna is furious about the attack, and at least I don’t need to worry about her motivation for all of this now.” Wendy replies.“So did Dio already leave the city?” you ask.“As predicted, he left at first dawn this morning. Many of the Greed Demons remained behind though. According to intelligence, it’s a combination of them not wanting to abandon the library when the real fighting starts and predictions of some power attacking them in the near future.” Wendy replies.“That would be my own doing. How long until they reach New TO?” you ask.“Five days tops. They didn’t use the portal, as they expected that Luna would attempt to re-route any sort of portals or space magic.” Wendy replies.“How’s Luna doing right this instant?” you ask.“She stopped debating with mother shortly before the meeting, so that’s good. Right now she’s in her room, possibly reflecting upon things for once in her life. She should be awake if you wish to see her.” Wendy replies.A) Go to the strategy meeting to hear more detailsB) See LunaC) Other
>>33453797>A) Go to the strategy meeting to hear more details
[1/2]“Now let’s head back inside, I want to hear more about the strategy meeting.” you reply.“The only thing you missed was Teresa and Jennifer bickering for hours.” Wendy replies as you step back in.“Jennifer dear, I keep telling you that an attack on Dio’s castle wouldn’t do any good, nor would an attack on them now do any good. An attrition war isn’t any good when the enemy really only needs two of their own men to survive the trip.” Teresa says pointing to the large map up on the screen.“Which is why we only need to have a small team of Ayarian’s just teleport in and then out with the captives!” A rather young woman says with a long pink ponytail and blue eyes. She appears to be dressed in the same clothing as Rebecca and Janine were. A since trenchcoat with a sports bra underneath.“With absolutely no sort of countermagic? That’s suicidal. The majority of the Pride Demons there are water controllers, who are all walking on several feet of ice and snow.” Teresa explains.“So we simply let our leaders be in the custody of these barbarians!?” Jennifer says hitting the desk.“No, I’m telling you to give it time. Rebecca would’ve never rushed into a d-”“Don’t you dare say what Master Rebecca would’ve done!” Jennifer yells out before turning around to leave the table.Teresa can only sigh as she sees this.“Inquiry, I take it she’s still headstrong about attacking now.” Wendy asks as she approaches the table.“Yes, but at least she hasn’t attempted to launch commandos at the transport army yet, so that’s an improvement.” Teresa says with a small sigh.“What’s the plan so far?” you ask Teresa.
[2/2]“So far we’ve established Luna teleporting all in with a portal ahead at some location. We figured that the Tostito’s Forest is a good location to right the army in. Lots of cover, easy to hide in, it’d be essentially the best ambush spot along the way to New TO.” Teresa says. “But our problems consist of what we should do with the snow.”“I heard about that. If Dio brings a lot of water users then we can be in real trouble.” you reply.“Yes, that’s one way of putting it.” Teresa sighs, putting her hand to her cheek. “The options we have are to either enlist the help of our own skilled water users to constantly counterspell the Pride Demons or to use fire experts to incinerate the entire area. Luna unfortunately doesn’t know water control, so we cannot rely on a strong ban to nullify water control.”“What are the problems of each?” you ask.“If we have a group of out water experts constantly counterspelling, then we basically have a portion of our force which is going to sit on the side and do nothing but counterspell, which puts a dent in our skilled attack force and not all water controls from Pride Demons may be stopped. On the other hand making a flash inferno of the area would get rid of all the ice and snow in rapid succession, but Succubi like you wouldn’t fare too well in the midst of a massive forest fire.”“Like me?” you ask.“Teresa is one of the old Succubi, so she has inherent resistance to fire.” Wendy explains.“It’s so handy when taking pies out of the oven~.” Teresa cheerily says.A) Support the counterspell optionB) Support the forest fire optionC) Other
>>33455209>“Teresa is one of the old Succubi, so she has inherent resistance to fire.”Do they have anything else? I am kinda confused about this "new/old" part. I know there once were succubi without a proper clan (like the Empress?).
>>33455209I think the fire option is better. Assuming we have some way to shield from it when it happens. Boiling that much snow and ice instantly would just incinerate everything else wouldn't leave behind burning trees for long, so it's just the initial minute or two we'd really have to worry about.
>>33455347That is correct. Before the Queen's there only existed the Vanilla Succubi.Old Succubi are ones who can trace their bloodline back to Pamille herself within a certain generational gap. They are considered to be a bit stronger and have inherent fire resistances along with a better affinity for fire, but otherwise they're not that much different than Vanilla Succubi. Those who are too distant to Pamille will often have their blood mixed with humans, and lose these boons and gain mortal skin colours and traits (EX: A succubi with an elf parent may have elf ears by default)
>>33455209>B) Support the forest fire optionYea, this seems alright. We could always shield ourselves somehow.Unless someone has a better idea for C)
>>33455625The only C idea I have is trying to find someone who can do the water ban thing.
>>33455685Someone who has Space Control at good and sufficiently high water control to ban it? That's an idea, we could ask that first.
>>33456075portal all of snow out? seems like that might be difficult though
>>33456197No. Read the "Ban" ability in space control.It's to ban water based from being cast, so they can't manipulate snow.
>>33456384>water based spells
“Do we have anyone who’s capable of making a water ban strong enough?” you ask.“Hm...” Teresa looks conflicted as she hesitates to answer.“The Miyians.” Wendy replies.“What’s the problem there?” you ask.“They’re blaming us for the leak of the meeting.” Wendy replies. “Our diplomatic ties are in terrible shape right now, and I doubt Beck is going to give us any real support when the only thing she’s lost is a single diplomat.” “...What?” you ask in disbelief.“I’m afraid that’s the case exactly.” Teresa says with a soft sigh as she rests her hands on her cheek. “We’d need a strong enough ban so that Dio and his cronies just don’t countermagic it. The Miyians would surely be able to make sure a device that would nullify water magic, however such a machine would be expensive to make.”“We have support from many Miyian gangs who feel this is an attack on all Succubi. While they have heart and spirit, they lack the proper resources to make such a device.” Wendy explains.“And the gangbangers would be able to pull this off?” you ask.“Miyian technology is different if that if a Miyian has enough time, resources, and if size isn’t an issue then they can make extremely powerful pieces of equipment. Even an average user in their destructive arts can make a bomb to blow up an entire city on paper, but to actually produce such a thing would require a lot of resources, very rare resources, or both.” Teresa replies.(HINT: Who do you know who can solve this problem?)
>>33456479Amanda. Or fuck that we could just bust Miyu herself out of jail YOLO
Well the problem is that it's iffy if Amanda could put something like that together herself. Wasn't she "majoring" in psychology? And trying to get her to use contacts to help out okarians doesn't seem like it would work out so great.
>>33456743the problem with the okarian-friendly miyans is they don't official support, and thus no resources. amanda just needs to be introduced to them and that problem goes away.
>>33456999Well we can do that then. Get Amanda to introduce us and then we throw resources at the whole group. We probably have plenty resources just lying around seeing how many leaders are working with us.
>>33457058The real question is time a problem?
>>33457098Well we'd have to ask to know that, just like with the other details. So we may as well just ask.
>>33457098remember that in addition to whatever we and the leaders can contribute, amanda has money. she's a rich bitch. with enough funds time isn't too much of an issue.
>>33456743Yup.That still hardly stops Miyian Super Science though. Amanda has the axiom of control, and controlling Brooklyn's mental state was just the beginning
Well, let's say that we may have an in with some Miyan groups then.We haven't seen Amanda in forever anyway.
“I could probably solve the problem of resources, but the real question is do we have time?” you ask.“Not for an elaborate Miyian super invention no. It’s going have to be something quick.” Teresa replies.“Inquiry, whom do you have in mind Brooklyn.” Wendy asks.“A Miyian friend of mine. Friend of one of your ‘friends’.” you reply to Wendy. “Her family basically has the liquid water monopoly up north of here, so she’s a very rich bitch. With her resources it shouldn’t be a problem at all.”“Oh that’s perfect! Look tell your friend that her invention must be ready in two days! I know this is a tight deadline, but this is the time they start heading through the forest, so we absolutely cannot miss this.” Teresa explains.“Inquiry, bacon wrapped shrimp or chicken.” an Okarian asks holding a dish in front.“Catering? Do you also have lobster stuffed with taco?” you ask.“Lobsters are boiling as we speak.” Wendy replies.A) Take a snackB) Wait for Lobster TacosC) See how Wendy is doingD) Ask Wendy or Teresa for advice on the upcoming battle, being your first major one.E) Other
>>33457511Shouldn't that be taco stuffed with lobster?Anyway, >D) Ask Wendy or Teresa for advice on the upcoming battle, being your first major one.
>>33457511B) Wait for Lobster TacosC) See how Wendy is doingD) Ask Wendy or Teresa for advice on the upcoming battle, being your first major one.E) Take some Lobster w/ tacos over to Luna.
>>33457589>>33457511>B) Wait for Lobster Tacos>C) See how Wendy is doing>D) Ask Wendy or Teresa for advice on the upcoming battle, being your first major one.>E) Take some Lobster w/ tacos over to Luna.This is fine
>>33457511Ask about the Miyan armories that we know the location of. Will those be helpful?
>>33457846>Ask about the Miyan armories that we know the location of. Will those be helpful?oh those, I forgot about that.We can scry the location first.
>>33457949>>33457846i dont think raiding their stuff would really be a good idea right now
>>33457988No, Its Miyu's armories full of goodies. The University Miyans have no idea where it is.
>>33457846>>33458049Well we could even get there in a few minutes now, if we do know the location. With our new portals and stuff.
>>33458266Yeah, but we can't move massive amounts of equipment through.
[1/2]God knows you’d never have such exotic food back in Fort Hope, so you decide to wait a bit for the lobster tacos before bringing an extra large serving for both you and Luna. You summon up a darkness tentacle to knock the door of her room.“It’s open Brooklyn.” Luna calls out on the other side.“How did you know it wa-” you stop talking once you enter the other side. Luna basically in nothing but her panties and a tank top watching about two dozen different scrying windows, one of them being the outside of her door. “That’s how you knew I was coming.”“Yea I guess.” Luna bluntly states without removing her eyes from her scrying window.Looking around Luna’s room, you can see it being littered with both artifacts from the Old World and the current age, no doubt trophies filled from Luna’s adventures. Posters of attractive young men, most likely exotic adventurers with names like “N-Sync”. Classical music of the old world fills the room, with you attempting to listen to the lyrics.“...Baby got back?” you ask repeating after the lyrics.“It was ancient when my mom listened to it, but it’s a good song so why not.” Luna replies still lying down on her bed.“So are you... happy that your mother is alive?” you ask Luna.“Of course I’m happy!” Luna quickly snaps at you. “Just... shocked that’s all. I wrote her off dead years ago, and then one day after I come back she’s there in the living room ready to yell my ear off for running off again. Bring the food over here if you don’t mind.”“You don’t like it when she does that?” you ask.“No, I feel that she REALLY start practicing what she preaches!” Luna grumples as she snatches a fork from your hand.
>>33458288Sure we can. We have that hammerspace ability. Or just move it through the portal, too.
[2/2]“Your mother was running from the Pride demons, so I really d-”“No not THAT you idiot! It’s when I was gro... Hell pretty much my entire life!” Luna states as she breaks open some of her lobster. “I was the youngest daughter of three, so it felt as mother’s attention was already split. Not only that, but she busy ALL the god damn time! Those all nighters at the office when she was raising us, to ‘managing the library’ shortly after Dad died, which was just a flimsy excuse to sit on her ass watching plays all the time! Dad was pretty much the only person I ever got along with, but he’s been dead hundreds of years!”“Pardon me to asking a person question, but why didn’t your father become a Succubus? I mean your mother, even back then, had the power to turn him into one right?” you ask.Luna just sighs as she cracks open her lobster. “Mom’s last soulmate died after they were together for a century, which caused Mom to go off the deep end. Dad insisted that if he turned into any sort of demon, then the same thing would happen. In his own way, he wanted to teach mom what loss meant. He said he had no regrets when he died, but...” A tear comes out of the corner of Luna’s eye as she puts her hand on her stomach. “I at least would’ve wanted him to see his own granddaughter. If anything I’m mad at myself for waiting this long!”Luna has a few sobs before she puts her head back up. “Brooklyn, you used to be a guy, right?”“Yea, I was.” you reply.“I know this is loaded but... Imagine if I was your daughter. How would you feel about your grandchild?” Luna asks with tears in her eyes.Hm... Luna may be tough, but even still she’s just as frightened about Motherhood as anyone else is.
>>33458332"Happy, scared for her. Oh, and if I was in Oskana's position, I'd be pissed as hell at myself, and feeling terribly guilty, to ask my pregnant daughter to fight someone like Dis while I sat safe on my ass. Sure, the circumstances wouldn't leave me much option, but that probably wouldn't chance how ashamed I'd feel."
>>33458499This basically."Angry at the powerlessness."
>>33458320I think you're massively underestimating how much stuff are in these armories.
>>33458839We can hammerspace anything smaller than a microwave oven. We can carry anything as big as a person through a portal.Why do you assume we'd have to clear the place out to get something good from it? Even one thing could be a gamechanger.
>>33458887I was assuming we'd want to bring in all the equipment as rapidly as possible so we can properly equip our forces
>>33458950The idea would be more to find something special that could change the rules of the entire fight. Since the stuff there is supposed to be from a time of much higher technology and mad science, and pretty out there. Stuff like a lot of infantry weapons isn't what we're lacking.
>>33459021Yeah, as the person who suggested it, you're totally wrong. We want infantry weapons, because there's a would of difference between a human with steel sword and chainmail and one with powered armor and a railgun. We want more of the combat drones like the one langley used. And yes, we want what miyan superscience is in there.
>>33459097We aren't using humans. We are using elite demonic battle mages.
>>33459172We will be using humans soon enough though.
>>33458332"You would be fighting Dis anyway if you weren't pregnant, right? This just gives you something even greater to fight for. A world where your daughter will be safe. Just don't let him find out you are, or he'll try to use it to his advantage."
>>33459200But not for this thing we're planning just now. And any kind of time limitation we have right now isn't meaningful for future plans.
>>33459207How the fuck is that relevant to the question she asked?>>33459021No, the idea was to get tons of useful stuff and to have a powerful bribe/threat to the Miyans. Beck gets uppity, we hand it over to the witches.
>>33459247And why would a ton of crap be more effective at that than a magic nuke?
>>33459277Because we don't want to nuke the hostages. Duh.
>>33459302Okay, but I'm sure you see where I'm going with this.Why go to the secret bunker and take a lot of lower rarity stuff when there are possibly a few very high value, probably irreproducible, items around?Anyone can make a bunch of guns. Well, the Miyans definitely can. But artifacts from a bygone age where technology was more advanced, ones that were made by the queen of their entire clan, would be much more special.
>>33459361No I don't really. Have Luna make a permanent portal, port the shit over here. Quantity has a quality all of its own after all.
>>33459399Well yeah, sure, as a long term solution. We don't really have enough time to search the entire bunker before the action starts now.The best way to use it would be to ask Miyu what to look for and get only a few of the things that would work best for our situation.
"Happy, scared for her. Oh, and if I was in Oksana's position, I'd be pissed as hell at myself, and feeling terribly guilty, to ask my pregnant daughter to fight someone like Dis while I sat safe on my ass. Sure, the circumstances wouldn't leave me much option, but that probably wouldn't chance how ashamed I'd feel." you reply.“Some things don’t change... Oh well, it’s a handicap for Dis then. Damn bastard will need it considering what I’ve got in store for him.” Luna replies."You would be fighting Dis anyway if you weren't pregnant, right? This just gives you something even greater to fight for. A world where your daughter will be safe. Just don't let him find out you are, or he'll try to use it to his advantage." you reply.“After what he did to Mary I’d still kick his ass. I just never got a clear shot at the bastard with the constant goons surrounding him!” Luna says punching her fist into her palm.“Do you mind if I ask you how you became so strong?” you ask.“Working my ass off constantly. Wendy was pretty much born with her skill, but for me I started off fairly weak. It was only through constant training and adventuring that I managed to get where I am today. My main role model was the Wrath Demon Emperor in a way.” Luna states as she breaks the Lobster’s shell.“Oh?” you ask intrigued.“Brooklyn, the man trained for literally one hundred years non-stop, then once he returned he never lost a battle before challenging the last Wrath Demon Emperor in a battle so epic that a literal moon of a planet was split in two. Even now I heard no one has ever beaten him in combat nearly 650 years later. That is just sick no matter how you look at it!” Luna states.Well... More like Wrath Demon Empress than Emperor, but you can see Nalika’s point about her mother slacking off, it’s gone to the point where people don’t even know their rulers sex.
>>33459247It's relevant to how she would feel, not how a grandmother would feel, you're right.
>>33459421Or grab some interns. Seriously, we don't have to do everything ourselves. We have minions for that.
>>33459455I don't see how there's enough time to bother with the lower quality stuff either way.We have two days. We have possibly very limited portal access. All of succubuskind is scrambling around and doing relatively important stuff already.
>>33459441"Empress. She's the empress. And she's currently crashing on my couch."Speaking of, we should totally have her wreck the Celestian army that they plan to march into the city.
>>33459525this, so much THIS!
>>33459441"Yeah... About that. I'm pretty sure I know her and she's in town right now."
So how did Luna get from "Oh, you're the new help." to being this chatty with Brooklyn?
>>33459664Being yelled at for 12 hours by her mom. Some of which was probably yelling at her for treating brooklyn like disposable help
>>33459664She didn't know that her mom was still alive, or that we are the one responsible for their eventual return.
"Empress. She's the empress. And she's currently crashing on my couch." you reply.Luna looks at you blankly for a second. “...What?”“The Wrath Demon Empress is currently sleeping in our house because she’s on vacation.” you reply.Luna looks at you for a few more seconds before bursting out laughing. “Oh Brooklyn! That’s funny as hell! As if someone like her would forget the duties of being an Empress!”Probably more like she’s the kind of person to forget that she’s an Empress. She never directly said that she was an Empress to your face, but you’re fairly certain that she’s one alright.Luna finishes off the rest of her taco lobster, putting the tray next to her table. “Thank you for the support Brooklyn. Honestly when I was talking to mother last night, I was pretty angry at you.”“Why?” you ask.“Because one of the top tier space users couldn’t find her after 500 years of scrying and adventuring, and meanwhile a backwater hick finds my mother completely by accident.” Luna replies.You’re about to retort to being a backwater hick, but you could probably see where she’s coming from.“So... Let me repay you...” Luna then says in a sultry tone of voice before diving for your neck.“L-Luna!” you gasp in shock. “We have a battle to prepare for!”“My preparations are all but complete...” Luna mutters in between kisses on your neck, her hand now groping your breasts through your clothing. “I could go for another ‘taco’ if you get my drift, or do you not like pregnant women?”A) “B-But you’re my Queen’s daughter!” (Don’t do it)B) Screw the clause, sleeping with Princesses is what heroes do. You may lack a penis but you’re still going to live out your fantasy!C) Other
>>33460283>C) Other>"...Can it wait until after the lobster tacos? I'm hungry."
>>33460283>OtherA) “B-But you’re my Queen’s daughter!” (Do it)
>>33460283Bnothing wrong with taco
>>33460283What clause are we talking about?
>>33460369No idea. Our deals with people tend to be ludicrously informal.
>>33460392>>33460369and that kind of clause seems ridiculouswhat, its illegal for succubus princesses to have sex?
>>33460283>B) Screw the clause, sleeping with Princesses is what heroes do. You may lack a penis but you’re still going to live out your fantasy!Well now...
>>33460283C) "Actually, I don't think it was by accident at all. The queens said my memory of who told me about the location of the shrine was tampered."In regards to A or B, as long as we have time to contact Amanda so she has a reasonable amount of time to start the device, get Shiva prepared to make some bootlegs of the fight (and maybe invite some Rage demons to a kegger and get them involved in the fight), and figure out what's going on with the Laminian's attempt to secure the Draugr's body and help out, sure.
>>33460487You forgot our meetings with Beck and the fighter's guild replacements
Small dinner break for me to eat
>>33460283>B) Screw the clause, sleeping with Princesses is what heroes do. You may lack a penis but you’re still going to live out your fantasy!This reminds me that we have to get a dick. Pitty that the person who could do that was immediately put into a coma.
>>33460283Why is this even a choice?
>>33460704Have you read the last 10 threads for this quest?
>>33460704Point, darkness tentacles are a necessity. Especially since Luna will immediately ask Wendy if she does that too.
[1/2]“B-But you’re my Queen’s daughter!” you protest.Luna grins as she looks at you with hungry eyes. “That’s what makes it all the better...”Luna then plants a kiss on your lips, nearly tearing off your clothing before aggressively going at it with you.******You lay down on your back, exhausted after an intense lovemaking session. “Oh man... That was... That was...”“Bardic knowledge put to good use.” Luna smirks while laying down in bed.“I... I don’t think I can even walk right now. I don’t think I can walk straight for a week.” you reply, stretching yourself out on the king size bed. “What time is it?”“About 5:30 PM.” Luna casually replies.“We’ve been at it for nearly five hours!?” you gasp in horror.“Closer to eight actually. Used a bit of time control to slow down time for us.” Luna casually replies.“Shit! Shit! I need to get to Amanda and tell her of the plan!” you say gathering your clothing off the floor in a hurry.
[2/2]“Amanda... Oh you mean that snotty girl that mom told me about?” Luna asks.“Yes! That’s her! I need to get her to make an anti-water control device for our attack!” you reply as you take your bra from off the bed.“Oh well if you need to talk to her then that’s easy!” Luna says as she opens up a small space window up on her bed. “Only a description but... It’s good! You can tell her yourself now!”“Of course I’m going to tell her myself!” you protest. “How e-”******“-lse am I going to tell her!?” you protest, but looking at your surroundings you’re no longer in Luna’s room. You’re back at your own tower, inside of Amanda’s room. Your eyes lock with Amanda’s, Leona’s, and Erika’s. All of them having tea inside of Amanda’s room and currently staring at you naked while holding a bundle of clothing.Amanda is the first one to put down her teacup and close her mouth up from the shock. “...Brooklyn, I have many questions to ask of you. The three most prominent questions right now being how did you get into my room, what are you talking about, and why are you naked?”
>>33461340So, impromptu lesson plan, learn to dress fast if you are going to hang out with space control people.
>>33461340>You’re back at your own tower,The tower isn't warded against space magic?...
>>33461648It is. She's just that good. Her magic is probably 2 or three steps higher than ours.
>>33461684Hmm looking at the Space Control, seemed that yea you can scry the location of a target behind the ward. It just makes the skill check harder.Opening a portal, or in this case teleporting someone, seems aren't prevented in the warded area, as long as you have cryed the location.Not sure how BAN space control in an area, would work. Seemed if you want to teleport in there you ahve to counterspsell it first. (which I assume the caster would know).Guess we would have to upgrade the ward to BAN at least (if the upkeep isn't high).
Quickly recollecting your composure, you make some soligram clothes for yourself instantly before turning to face the girls. “A very quick lesson to all of you. Whenever you are with a person who happens to know space control, be sure that you’re able to change clothing very quickly.”Erika and Leona still remain wide eyed and mouths slightly ajar as they continue to stare at you.“Hmhm.” Amanda replies frankly. “Still, what about the main reason of why you’re here?”“I’ve come with a plan regarding the Miyian’s Amanda. Beck isn’t shelling out resources in order to help with the leader rescue front.” you tell her.“Not surprising. Either she’s doing it because she blames the Miyians or she doesn’t have the resources to spare with her own secret project in the works. Either or both are possible candiates.” Amanda replies.“So you confirmed she’s working on something?” you ask.“Confirmed no, but incredibly likely. Way too many of the same rumors and large shipments bypassing standard loading procedure before just vanishing. All far too suspicious to me and definitely an indicator that something bigger is amidst. But still Brooklyn, what is your plan?”
Alright things are winding down now. We'll continue this tomorrow at 10:30 AM EST.
Small bump before I head off to bed.
>>33462101"Ambush the Pride Demons in a nearby forest; I've already arranged some Celestian support, I think I have a way to get some Rage demon shock troops, but I need someone to build a device to deny the use of Water control in the area. The raid will be in two days. That's where you come in, Amanda."
>>33462101seconding >>33463984explain the heavy prevalence of water control magic users and the local environment to her
>>33462101She also needs to get in touch with the gangbangers. Getting her in as their sponsor should allow us to better equip our attack force. Speaking of equipment, what's the specifications on the armor she spent weeks making and upgrading for us?Because looking at her and our abilities, this was the finished product I wanted:from Prostestia:heavy armormental sheildingScry shielding From Exelixi:Improved physical abilities: Strength, speed, ect. Improved casting speedImproved light/darknessbasically, when a combat focused Okerian battlemage gets armor made by a Miyan who's literally built to build him that armor, things get scary.
"Ambush the Pride Demons in a nearby forest; I've already arranged some Celestian support, I think I have a way to get some Rage demon shock troops, but I need someone to build a device to deny the use of Water control in the area. That's where you come in, Amanda." you tell her.“I see! Such a device should be a trifling for one such as myself! What sort of deadline are we looking at? A week?” Amanda asks.“Two days.” you reply to her.“That... could be a problem.” Amanda states.“Amanda, you’re the only person with the resources to pull this off. The university isn’t contributing their share, and while we have the willpower and the brains to pull this off, we don’t have the resources.” you tell her.“Oh? You have other Miyians in on this? Where are they from?” Amanda asks.“Mainly from the church of Pamille and various gangs who see the recent events as an affront to all Succubi.” you reply to her.“Ugh... To work with such... commoners.” Amanda says with disgust.“We’ll be fighting in a place with several feet of ice and snow below us. If we don’t have a way to get of that ice and snow then we’re going to be walking into a slaughter.” you tell her.“I know! It’s just that... Time is going to be an issue. Even if I get the resources today, it means that the building the device will need to happen tomorrow. If you told me earlier than I would’ve been a little more prepared! Ugh!” Amanda says in a small fit. “What were you doing over at the library that took so long anyways!?”A) Having mindblowing lesbian sex with a Demon PrincessB) Strategy meetingC) Other
>>33468026>B) Strategy meetingAnd manipulating the Celestians, ect.
>>33468026deadpan>A) Having mindblowing lesbian sex with a Demon Princessthen go "No seriously">B) Strategy meetingthough could Luna help with the time issue? she managed to slow down time with us, so she might be able to get Amanda a bunch more hours
B>>33468130>deadpan>then go "No seriously"not sure if this would work, she knows brooklyn has tons of sex
>>33468130>though could Luna help with the time issue? she managed to slow down time with us, so she might be able to get Amanda a bunch more hoursThis could be a valid plan for>C) Other
>>33468130>>33468164we should ask her if space/time control magic could help her get more time and then see if Luna can help
“Strategy meeting. All the clans where there so it took some time for us to decide on anything solid.” you reply.“Fair enough.” Amanda replies.(“Why does your aura show that you’re lying?”) Erika asks telepathically.Guess that means she can’t read your thoughts, which is a good thing frankly.“Forgive the intrusion, I’ll leave you girls to your tea party now.” you say doing a small single handed curtsy as an apology before leaving.What now?A) Talk to Shiva about Wrath Demon supportB) Other
>>33468257>A) Talk to Shiva about Wrath Demon support
>>33468257>A) Talk to Shiva about Wrath Demon supportExplain that we don't want her to attack the pride demons personally. Mind you, if the Celestian army they are thinking about were to reflexively try to kill the first demon they see on the way to the city, well you are allowed to defend yourselves.
You decide to see if you can talk to Shiva about providing some kind of Wrath demon support, hopefully she’d be able to provide something.After checking Shiva’s and Nalika’s rooms, you don’t find any of them in there. It’s only when you go downstairs and see Shiva using the oven fireplace to make something, with Nalika tapping her fingers with two arms on the sides of the table.“Lady Shiva. I need you for a matter most dir-”“Makin’ grilled cheese!” Shiva merrily replies.“But Lady Shiva! This matter concerns all of the demons and the Fate of Old TO itself!” you protest.“Makin’ grilled Cheese!” Shiva replies once again in a cheery tone.“What do you want Brooklyn?” Nalika asks you.“I... wanted to ask Shiva if she could lend some Wrath Demon support to us for the upcoming battles. With both the Pride Demons and possibly a Celestian attack force, we’re going to have our hands full.” you say to Shiva.“...So what you’re saying is you want a hand from me.” Shiva replies bluntly.
>>33468872>“...So what you’re saying is you want a hand from me.” Shiva replies bluntly."Well, you have so many, it shouldn't be a problem..."Don't actually say this.
>>33468872"Of course. I'd be a fool not to want your help, covert or overt."
>>33468973that is quite funny
>>33468872>>33468977is good>>33468973we should totally say that, we should also ask Luna about her time magic helping Amanda, maybe we can make a note and portal it to herits getting late/early here, I'm gonna head to bed so good luck and don't fuck up
"Well, you have so many, it shouldn't be a problem.” you say to Nalika.Nalika makes a small growl as she hears this. “Yes, the joke is funny because I have six arms.”“Oh lighten up sweetie! One should be able to take a good joke!” Shiva replies.“At least it isn’t a deodorant joke.” Shiva replies before she sits up from the table. “Fine, let’s get going to the fighters guild.”“Let me grab my coat.” you say walking over and putting on your coat.It’s only about a block away from your house before Shiva just gives out a large sigh. “I can’t stand that woman.”Oh boy, here we go again.“Mother just... She’s just completely unable to relate to other people! I mean I thought I was over my inferiority complexes, but she’s just the polar opposite of me in every way! She’s tall, curvy and charming! Meanwhile I’m flat as board and probably negative in the womanly aspects division! She’s stupidly strong, fighting what is basically a small well prepared army in of itself while I just struggle with a single mutt Werewolf! Worse yet she’s so irresponsible! You just saw it back there, didn’t you!? I mean the entire reason why I’m here is because mom brought home some random mortal when bar crawling last night...” Shiva vents, before letting out a large sigh before drooping her shoulders. “At times I seriously wonder whenever or not she actually cares for me as her daughter of if I’m just another one of her passing curiosities...”
>>33469433I think you have the names switched
>>33469433Me thinks your mixing up mother and daughter quite often there Sand.
>>33469433Honestly, she reminds me a bit of Luna Sutoba. Remember, you're mother wasn't always this strong. It took serious work for her to get where she is. Work you could replicate if you care to. As for whether she cares for you... she is risking a war with the pride demons to help out you and your friends. Trust me, some of her frivolity is feigned. I know a Laminian who's remarkably similar actually, though much worse.
>>33469528Derp, yea you may be right there. Apologies.
>>33469570This.Mention the 100 years training part.
“Honestly, she reminds me a bit of Luna Sutoba. Remember, your mother wasn't always this strong. It took serious work for her to get where she is. Work you could replicate if you care to.” you tell Nalika.“Her infamous one hundred year training binge? My own concern was that she was insanely gifted even before that.” Nalika sighs.“As for whether she cares for you... she is risking a war with the pride demons to help out you and your friends. Trust me, some of her frivolity is feigned. I know a Laminian who's remarkably similar actually, though much worse.” you tell Nalika.Nalika shudders upon hearing those words come from your mouth. “Such a concept terrifies me. As for mother... I thought I was usually good at reading people, but a lot of mother’s ways comes from her desire to see strong people.”“Strong people?” you ask.“Mother doesn’t like babying people in a physical way. When it comes to something, she often offers support but she will rarely if ever do anything. In her own view, she literally gained everything with her own eight hands, and she’s often of the impression that she others can be the same way. This is why she was basically ignoring your requests back at the house about the grilled cheese. In a way she doesn’t want you or me relying on her.” Nalika explains. “It was the same way with my other brothers and sisters.”“Then why is she here?” you ask.“Originally, to check up on me. But after seeing that Purple was alive, something’s probably tickled her fancy.” Nalika says. “I remember mother saying that Purple was the only other person who was remotely close to her.”“Purple can keep up with that monster?” you ask amazed.“By keep up I mean take more than one hit and still remain standing.” Nalika clarifies.“Figures.” you reply.(Anything you wish to ask Nalika?)
i keep thinking this is Nalika's father http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpokjMDGM60
>>33470116"Nalika, have you thought more about what you want to do? Because from what I can see, while there might be a few ways to do it...you need to get out of your mother's shadow. And that means training your mind and body, as well as becoming leader of sorts within the Rage demon community.And that would start by doing something that you feel does benefit you. Not necessarily something fun, all training is tough work, but..."So, my thoughts here are to spice up the Rage demon involvement here, basically throw a party for them before/after, treat it as a 'training session' opportunity.
>>33470545definitely want to ask her what she wants to do with her life. Could say that sometimes a leader is not necessarily the strongest person but one who steps up and takes responsibility.
>>33470959oh forgot to add but what makes a good leader is wisdom and intelligence.
"Nalika, have you thought more about what you want to do? Because from what I can see, while there might be a few ways to do it...you need to get out of your mother's shadow. And that means training your mind and body, as well as becoming leader of sorts within the Rage demon community.” you tell Nalika. “And that would start by doing something that you feel does benefit you. Not necessarily something fun, all training is tough work, but..."“We Asurans have more endorphins released when we accomplish physical feats, but I have to admit that training for one hundred years does merit respect on any account.” Nalika replies. “It’s just that... I just don’t often like the Asuran culture in general Brooklyn.”“You dodged my first question.” you say to Nalika as you both exit the bazaar district.“That’s because... Look it’s because I don’t know what I want to do with my life. I originally became a mercenary as that’s what all Wrath demons do, and I thought exploring the universe would help. The only thing it did was get me more questions. Why are we here? What is our purpose? I just despise my race because the most common answer to both of those responses is ‘to punch things really really hard’.” Nalika explains.“Is that kind of extreme? I mean it’s like me saying all Succubi are whores.” you reply.“Well it’s the truth I’ve found so far. ...Come to think of it, I think I do have one thing I want to do. Find something more meaningful to do in life. I’ve *long* since given up trying to best mother for her title, but it still doesn’t make it any easier to find out what I should do in my life.” Nalika explains.
>>33471061As a clarification.Wrath Demons = Umbrella term for all sorts of Wrath Demons. Include things such as Balorgs and Asurans.Asurans = The multiple armed race that Nalika and Shiva are members of. Currently the "noble" race of the Wrath Demons.Noble Race = A member of the race who's the same species as the Emperor/Empress. For example, Vampires and Succubi are both Lust demons, but Succubi are currently considered the Noble race because of Pamille being the Empress
>>33471061"Well, I'll help you along the way whatever you decide."
"Well, I'll help you along the way whatever you decide." you tell Nalika.“Thanks Brooklyn, I appreciate it.” Nalika replies as you both stand before the Fighter’s Guild. “Well, here we are.”“Do you need any help?” you ask Nalika.“I think I should be able to handle things on my own.” Nalika says rolling her neck. “...Thank you for all of this Brooklyn. Normally I don’t like fighting, but with you I’m honored to help out with the Succubus’s plight in whatever way I can.”(In addition to replying to Nalika, what else do you want to do now? It’s nearly 6:30 in game time)
>>33471707Uh, aren't we following shiva to the fighters guild?
>>33471707Well, what do we even have time to do? I'm guessing the stuff with Excel is out until after the upcoming fight.>>33471738Nalika. And she just said not to follow her.
>>33471738It's Nalika. Shiva is the mother/Empress. And we got told multiple times that she doesn't want to directly help us.
>>33471761>>33471763Okay, now I'm just totally confused. that's not what >>33469433 says
>>33471799read the thread, its right here just for you>>33469493>>33469528>>33469582
>>33471799Sand mixed the names up in that oneAlso, we should fuck Shiva so hard she gets off her lazy arse and does something useful for once.
>>33471707Meeting with the leader of the fighters guild, strong arming Beck are the other things on our list.
>>33471867>Meeting with the leader of the fighters guildthe one that got captured and we're currently making plans to rescue?>strong arming Beckyeah, that sounds like an awesome idea, strong arm the powerful demon who has psychopathic hate for us
>>33471903>the one that got captured and we're currently making plans to rescue?Her replacement. We already asked the second strongest Succubi in the city, the Vanillla Paladin, to set up a meeting.>yeah, that sounds like an awesome idea, strong arm the powerful demon who has psychopathic hate for usWell, if reasonable discussion works I'm all for it. If it doesn't we either have to kill her or play political hardball. Which will be fun.
>>33471903>psychopathic hate for usI don't remember that, I don't even remember meeting her or pissing her off, when did this happen?
>>33471960She hates Okerians in general.
>>33471903>powerful demonWe could probably take her 1 on 1. So yeah, powerful, but not nearly as strong as you are implying.
>>33471998yeah, but that don't equal >psychopathic hate for us
>>33472025Hey, I'm not saying he's right.
>>33472023yeah, sure, but what does that help us? we arent getting a 1 on 1 fight and even if we won such a fight we would be shooting ourselves in the foot with it>>33472025dont you remember her from the scene with amanda or what was it? she is the image of deep and irrational hate
>>33472058Well, then why is it a bad idea to strong arm her?
>>33472023I don't think physical power has much to do with the situation. She's very powerful because of her authority and connections.
>>33471867Pretty much this. ignore >>33471903>>33472092Ours are considerably more powerful though.
>>33472102no, they are notshe has an entire clan behind her on anything she doeswe have a few friends behund us on anything we doremember that she is one of the most important succubi who are alive and activeregardless, even if we could get several succubus clans behind us and against her, does this REALLY seem like the time to indulge in civil war?
>>33472160>no, they are not>The Queens>The leaders>The Vanilla paladinYeah, our connections reach much higher. She has one clan. We have three and the church. if she gets impossible to deal with, we will remove her, and place someone else in the spot just as planned. Now please stop strawmanning
>>33472228we do not have them for the sake of going against the interests of succubi like you are proposingthats why i pointed out the "on anything she does" thing
>>33472256Dude, strong arming isn't attacking her. Its aggressive negotiations.
>>33472256Please stop it. Seriously. We've already asked for a meeting with the replacement head of the fighters guild and Beck. If she's cooperative nothing bad will happen. If she isn't we twist her arm until she cooperates or have her removed.
>>33472292She isn't going to be willing to go into negotiations. She flat out refused any kind of contact already. Now she's creating superweapons.This is not someone you can negotiate with. It's someone who needs to be removed. But guess what, we are already on the verge of a massive battle with the pride demons that we can't afford to lose no matter what. We don't have time, resources or coordination between clans necessary for a unilateral strike on the Miyians.
IIRC wasn't Beck blasted through the door when Dis interrupted the meeting?
>>33472343>She isn't going to be willing to go into negotiations. She flat out refused any kind of contact already. Now she's creating superweapons.Not really. We asked for a meeting arranged through the church. We haven't gotten a reply.
>>33472362i think it was an ambassadorbeck, of course, blames okarians for everything bad that happened at the meeting
>>33472343You have no idea what you are talking about. Consider yourself outvoted. see >>33472375>>33472362That was some random Mook IIRC
>>33472408>outvotedThat's fine if we already have it set up.
>>33472408i just dont want to antagonize the lunatic as long as we dont "strong arm" her everything should be fine
Oh wow, a quick dinner and there are tons of posts.Time to write the next post
>>33472433We did. We've also arranged a meeting with influential but sane miyans if this fails. Miyu yells at them, then they arrange a coup
>>33472488Hey, I can always create stupid arguments if it helps you come up with stuff.
>>33472482Eh, I want to politically strong arm someone though.
>>33472556Someday, anon, someday. Maybe even today if need be. Personally, I'm more sad that we seem to have ended up in the Clan that's hardest to get to the number 2 position. Seriously, why couldn't the insane one have been a Okerian, then we could have killed her and took her job.
>>33472556just dont do it to the crazy person with the bomb
>>33472607I'd be seriously surprised if her superweapon is something she can only use once.
>>33472596I'm pretty sure there are equally insane Okarians around. You need two sides for a feud.
>>33472631True. But killing Wendy and taking her job as head of the library isn't exactly a practical proposition right now. Or ever really.
>>33472654And Wendy is unlikely to be one of the problematic ones anyway.
>>33472669Which means we can't take her job.
>>33472700We have a better job anyway. Potentially. In the future.
>>33472669That is not the most inspiring statement. That reminds me, we need to get Ada a better job if we want to turn fort hope into our bitching castle.
>>33472700Considering how much she's bitched about the job, we probably could
“Well I got a meeting with the current Belkarian temporary leader, so I’m going to be going with you for at least a few more steps.” you tell Nalika.“Fair enough.” Nalika replies as you both walk into the Fighter’s Guild.The Fighter’s Guild has a different atmosphere than usual today. Back when Fredika was with them and doing things, it appeared they had a lot more energy. Now most of the people inside of the arena are merely brooding, heads hung low. A few Belkarians can be seen sharpening their swords while staring off into space menacingly. You let Nalika do her prep talk with her own race before heading on upstairs to meet with the current Belkarian leader. A few Belkarian guards stop you at first, but after mentioning your name you are easily allowed to head through.You head into the office overlooking the arena, seeing none other than Zenga herself, still dressed in her regal attire composed of an extremely fine naval uniform, complete with both pauldrons and badges pinned to her chest. Hanging by the side of her uniform on her belt, you can see what appears to be a rapier which is probably work half the Fort Hope treasury due to it’s rarity. Green hair flows out the back of her head, hand on the window as she looks down over the arena.“We meet again Zenga.” you reply to her frankly. “Indeed, we do. But I wish it could be in better times.” Zenga says with a sigh as she looks down below.“What’s the problem?” you ask.“Morale. Even the non-Succubi members looked up to Fredika, and when she finally turned around back to normal, there was a brand new... energy in the hair. But now with our leader captured once again, morale has dropped to an all time low. Many of the members are just itching for a chance to get back at the vile creatures who captured Fredika. Quite frankly, so do I.” Zenga says without tearing her head away from the window.
>>33473038Sounds like someone is about to get the best gift they could hope for.
Alright, I'll be brief here. Aside from saying anything to Zenga before we head off to the next scene? I got nothing else to mention or to think of, plus things seem to be winding down now. I was thinking next thread we'd basically start right before the battle, so is there any last minute preparations you want to do?
>>33475491Well there was the whole thing about portaling to one of Miyu's old caches. We could try that. If that's not feasible then just spend time training and checking over our people I guess.
>>33475491Asking Nalika if she knew of any particular places we could hire/convince some Wrath demons to help out here. Convince them possibly with a party of sorts. Make sure Amelia knows what we're going to be hitting, in case her fellows were going to strike the convoy or were going to cause trouble soon and divert reserve troops.
