Welcome ladies and gentlemen to another edition of Succubus Lord Quest!The quest that may update slowly, but I take pride in it’s persistence!Last time on Succubus Lord Quest it was all about the preparations! Excel is safe, the Subota’s have their battle plan, Nalika’s Persuasion of the other Wrath demons, and the prep talk with current Belkarian Regent-Regent is done! Now all that’s left is the main battle against Lord Dio in order to free the Succubus Leaders!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-FIAlso why am I posting landscapes again? I dunno, seemed cool.
[1/2]“Then we’re going to give them the best gift they can hope for. They’ll have their chance at the Pride Demons tomorrow for the attack, and quite a few of them are itching for the attack.” you tell Zenga. “Do you think you can get enough people up for the attack the next day?” “I’m... I’m not sure. I feels as if no matter what I’d be doing that it won’t be enough.” Zenga says turning away from the window to face you, her pained face filled with uncertainty. “I mean, do we even stand a chance at this?”“No.” you reply frankly.“B-But then w-”“But we have to hope. Hope is all we have left in this god forsaken wasteland, Succubi and mortal alike. If we don’t rise up and do something against our oppressors, then we may as well just hand ourselves into them.” You tell Zenga, repeating a quote you heard from your father when you were younger.Zenga is about to reply, but stops to ponder on the statement.“I’ll know your answer if I see you at the library tomorrow.” you tell Zenga as you begin to walk out of the room. Given the big day you have tomorrow, your best bet will be to replenish your magical supplies, cast your warp field spell, then head to bed. Hopefully things will go well tomorrow, probably give a few prayers to see if your ancestors will watch over you in battle.******“B̞̏͒͒͘r̖̖̹͍͓̥̽͋̾ŏ̸͚̤͇̼̈̋o̼̰͍̣̪̭ͫ͘ḱ̻͕̙̀̒͢l̜̥̃̆ͭ͂y̧͎̟͈͓̳̍̊ͅn̶̩͖̄ͦ̎̌͐̓ͭ.͔̖̥̬̺͇ͧ͂́ͯ.̿ͧͫ͑̅̽҉.̍̐̎”Ugh...“Bͧ̚͜r̸̀̓ͨ͆̽o͚͉͇̘̿ͤ̈̇͂͘ȯ̸̬ͥk̬͚͖̒̃̅ͩ̓̍ͭl̡̓ͭͤ͗y̙͈͔̖̖͉͛ͩͩͩ̽̌͞ň͎̟̤͍̮̮͈̒ͫͦ.̠͈͈̂́̔̓̆̇͘.̲̯͚̩̾́ͅ.̧̯͉̽̉͑ ̵̳͖͕͎̖ͦ̐ͭ̎̑ ̢̦͍̎I͎̫'̙̑͂͌̉m̨̞͔͔̪͚ ̨̝̫͒h̭͚͉̟̹̦̭̐̀͋ͤ̉e̩̥͖͈̼ͣ͐͘ṙ̙̜̤̜̇̚e͕̯̳̘̠ͅ ͏̪̺i̻̬͙̰͐͌ͤn̍̑ͫ̆.̼͙̼̺̤̣̑͠ͅ.͈̞̮̌͐̐̑̋͛.̺̼̦̜̿͠”
[2/2](4chan wordcount is being a bitch about this, so here's what brooklyn experiences while sleeping: http://pastebin.com/3i7xyEPa)******You wake back up in a cold sweat, shivering from the voices and experiences that were in your dream.“Brooklyn? What’s wrong?” Mina asks, lying down next to you.“It was... A dream.” You say to Mina, clutching your chest as if your heart is going to explode out of your chest.“I... don’t think you had a dream.” Mina mutters, still half awake.“I was in... the astral Prison the Queen’s were in. Someone... was asking me to help them.” you tell Mina.“Who was it?” you ask.“I... don’t know. It sounds like a young girl but... distorted. Fearful...” you say to Mina as you rub your head. “What a great thing to worry about on the dawn of battle...”(Anything else you want to ask Mina about in your dream?)
>>33872067I fear beck's weapon may be a person. What is her specialty?
>>33872290From what you know, Beck's speciality is high energy Physics (both normal and mad). Her Miyian specialities are about making weapons and analysis machines.
>>33872326Forgot my name in the firefox client
>>33872406Then I've got nothing.
“I... I think Beck’s weapon may not be a weapon at all, but rather a person.” you reply to Mina.“A person?” Mina asks.“Yes, a person. Who or what I don’t know, but by the sounds of it they want out.” you reply to Mina.“Hooray! We have a reason to investigate Grendel Beck!” Mina cheers.“I doubt that a half hazy dream is something to work on but... It’s better than nothing.” you say. “...Still unnerving to have something like this now of all times.”(Anything else you want to ask?)
[1/2]“Just don’t worry about it for now Brooklyn. Just get some rest for the incoming next day.” Mina says grabbing your wrist. As a Belkarian, her gentle tugs seem more akin to someone pulling you with quite a bit of force.“Yea... Still a bit too early to be worrying...” you mutter as you go back to sleep in the bed.******The next morning you put on your leather armour and reflector module that Amanda had made for you, hoping that in the upcoming battle this would be enough. The events of the morning for everyone in the area can be described as tense, but in the good way. Everyone seems to be raring to go for this sort of activity. Shiva herself seems to have made you all a ‘victory breakfast’. Which indeed is quite good, though you couldn’t exactly stomach the glass of six raw eggs.As you make your way to the library with your squad of adventuring friends in tow, the guards take no time to whisk you and your friends through the front doors. Many of the Okarians seem to be staring bloody daggers at the non-Okarians entering moreso than ever no. That’s to say NOTHING of the Greed demons outside, who were denied entry and whose aura’s were so strong you could literally taste their jealousy and rage.“M-My word!” Uilodsir gasps as he sees the library.“All the books!” Nalika gasps. “I-If I could even read a thou-”“Yea the shock passes after a while.” you tell your group nonchalantly.“Excuse me, inquiry, which one of you is Lady Browning.” An Okarian Libarian guard asks you.“That’s me.” you reply.“There’s been a development. Please follow me.” The Librarian says turning around.“Good luck Brooklyn!” Mina says waving towards you. “We’ll meet up in the forest!” you say heading along with the Librarian.
[2/3]As you climb up the stairs to the room of the Subota’s, seeing that compared to the mess that it was left in the day before, it seems to be utterly transformed entirely. A row of Ayarians seem to be deep thought while you can see a few Okarian space users scrying out the location of the battlefield. Mary and Wendy seem to be standing in front of the large viewing device in the living room, displaying a map of the area.“Mary! You’re back up!” you exclaim.“Yes, though not in the condition I was hoping for.” Mary says, still a icepack on top of her head. “I won’t be taking part directly for this battle.”“So the development isn’t that the battle will be cancelled?” you ask.“No. In fact we’re slated to go ahead. We have the word that the Celestian Forces are making attacks against the Greed Demons, their attention is now split between us and them. They were not able to support the Pride Demons in nearly the numbers the Pride Demons were expecting. As a result, we will be dealing with a largely physical force.” Wendy says looking at the screen.“...I have a feeling there’s going to be bad news too.” you reply.“Your Draugr friend is back. He broke out of the Laminian containment cell.” Mary states.“What!?” you exclaim in shock. “I thought you had that place locked down!”“We did, but we didn’t expect him to have friends.” Mary replies.“...Friends?” you ask.
[3/3]“There were no survivors, but according to the scene there was more than one assailant helping the Draugr escape. We had the entrances and exits guarded, but they originated inside of the facility we were holding the Draugr in. We a Gemelli check the area, and they said whatever the Draugr used wasn’t Soligrams, or even anything remotely similar to them.” Mary explains.You bite down your lip in frustration. Of all the times that bastard has to come back alive, he chooses now. Worse, he seems to have friends AND thanks to his stupid powers he’s also able to rip open portals as he pleases! You’re not sure what he’s planning, but you bet your life that asshole is going to try and appear during the main battle."When did it break out?" you asks."Around 4:30 AM this morning." Mary replies....That was the same time you had your nightmare.A) “...It can’t be helped. We’re too far along to make major changes to the plans. The Draugr is going to be a wildcard here, so at just need to deal with him as if he’s a powerful enemy whose capabilities we know.”B) “We can’t risk this. Have some space users throwdown spacial wards at the battlefield. There’s a risk the barriers may tip off the Pride Demons, but I have a feeling that the Draugr’s surprise for us is going to be far worse than what Dio has planned.”C) Other
>>33873431>B) “We can’t risk this. Have some space users throwdown spacial wards at the battlefield. There’s a risk the barriers may tip off the Pride Demons, but I have a feeling that the Draugr’s surprise for us is going to be far worse than what Dio has planned.”
>>33873431>B) “We can’t risk this. Have some space users throwdown spacial wards at the battlefield. There’s a risk the barriers may tip off the Pride Demons, but I have a feeling that the Draugr’s surprise for us is going to be far worse than what Dio has planned.”Any way we can disguise them?
“We can’t risk this. Have some space users throwdown spacial wards at the battlefield. There’s a risk the barriers may tip off the Pride Demons, but I have a feeling that the Draugr’s surprise for us is going to be far worse than what Dio has planned.” you reply. “Is there any way we could disguise such things?”“The trees themselves. The space spell for detecting wards works by one directly sensing them, and if they’re hidden amongst the trees then beyond a certain distance they won’t see them. The foliage here is quite thick.” Wendy explains.“It would mean that the power of a full surprise attack would wear off.” Mary warns.“Do it. I’ve seen what this thing is capable of, and believe me if we even give it so much as a single breath it’d blow our entire offensive away.” you reply.“I’m also concerned about Dio.” Wendy explains. “What if h-”You shake your head. “It’d be me he’s after. Dio won’t be anything more than a blip on his radar.” “Brooklyn, you are part of the team that is going to take down Lord Dio. Remember that the person who takes him down will become the official ruler of Old TO.” Wendy explains. “Such a thing would be a major political victory for us, one that we desperately need.”(Anything else you wish to add before we move to the battlefield?)
>>33874023Not really. Guess we gotta ensure that Brooklyn lands the killing blow then.
>>33874065True. Shame that we can't feed him to the queens.
“Is there anything else to discuss?” you ask.“No, we just wanted to warn you to be careful.” Mary points out.“I will be.” you reply.“And... Please keep an eye on Luna and my future niece.” Wendy then asks you.“Goes without saying.” you say tipping your hat as you head towards the exit of the room.The portals to the battlefield are near the bottom of the library, within the sheltered firing range district. If anyone comes in here they’d be in the middle of a firing range with a large batch of twitchy Okarians. Not a pleasant experience for anyone.Stepping through your portal, you can see that you’ve arrived at the location, a forest a good several dozen kilometers north from Old TO. You remember passing by this place on the way to Old TO. The ancient pine trees of the forest still alive despite the centuries of winter inflicted upon them, so tall and imposing that you feel akin to an ant standing amidst their presence. You can already see a few people working around the area, such as some mortal mercenaries starting to make camoflauge before the Pride Demons arrive, even Terra appears to be here trying to communicate with some Polar bears in the forest (how those things live here is beyond you), and some other Miyians off in the distance starting to set up the plans for Amanda’s ice canceller.“Think fast!” Mina says as she hits you in the chest with a snowball.“...Mina we’re about to go into battle.” you remind her.“Yes, and one should know how to defuse a bit before a major battle!” Mina says pointing over to a location. Looking over, you can see a snowball war going on between a collection of Wrath demons, one of them Nalika herself.(Anything you want to do or talk to before the battle? All of Brooklyn’s NPC buddies are here [minus Shiva].)
>>33874646And minus Wilhelmina of course. I want to check up on Amanda and see how she's doing.
>>33874743Works for me. I want to see if we can integrate into the Miyans
>>33874228Can always eat him and barf up soul energy to the queens.
“I... just want to survive the day. YOU relax, I’ll check up on some of the others.” you reply.“Can do!” Mina replies.Heading along over to the path of the Miyian tailings, you can see that all of them in the forest are now building what appears to be a large egg shaped object, easily the size of a carriage. A few Miyian’s are working on the ground while some others hang from ropes on nearby trees in order to access the top. A few Miyian’s dressed in ‘civilian’ clothing (you doubt that any Miyian wears normal clothing) and each of them holding some sort of strange weapon can be seen.“Halt! Who goes there!?” one with a rest blade says pointing it at you.“Oh Shaniqwa relax!” Amanda says rushing over to you.“So the anti-ice device is going well?” you ask.“As far as an untested device made on a first draft blueprint is going, yes.” Amanda replies as she looks down at a clipboard on her hand along with an old world pen. “So far we’ve managed to reduce the chance of it exploding upon activation down to only 22 percent.”“I knew you could pull this off.” you reply to Amanda.“Don’t thank me yet Brooklyn. Even if this does work, we have no idea what flaws it may have.” Amanda replies.“It *will* repel ice at least right?” you ask.“Yes, although we had to tone it down a bit, lest it try to consume the moisture from the bodies of living creatures.” Amanda replies.(anything you want to ask/do?)
>>33875163This is me>>33874743And yes, Wilhelmina too
>>33875163"Yes, that would be bad. Maybe you could use that principle in a bomb later though. Would be great for buildings we need to capture intact."
>>33875268Offense and Defense, tow sides of the same coin. Speaking of, is our armor all shiny and upgraded?
>>33875408The leather one? It has the improvements that Amanda gave you yes.
>>33875523Good. You had mentioned that all of our friends were being upgraded behind the scenes, and I had hoped that its current stats reflected her improvements.
"Yes, that would be bad. Maybe you could use that principle in a bomb later though. Would be great for buildings we need to capture intact." you tell Amanda.“A horrible bomb. Making machines is like an art Brooklyn, if you’re making a sub-zero cancellation device you don’t want it to make bad bomb. Likewise if you’re making a bomb, you don’t want a half-hearted sub-zero cancellation device.” Amanda explains.“Don’t half ass the job?” you ask.“If you wish to talk in commoner language, then yes.” Amanda replies as she writes something down on her clipboard, before looking quickly back up. “N-No! The Durasteel coils go in section 12, not 5!”You leave Amanda to lead her squad of Miyian’s, tipping your hat as you leave the bomb in Amanda’s capable hands.(Anyone else you wish to talk to at this moment?)
Alright then, this next part may be a little big
[1/4]With nothing else left to think of, you head up over to your position and get ready for battle.Troy helps your small group gets camouflaged high up in the trees. In order not to be immediately detected by the Draugr, you’re forced to hide inside of wards for the time being. You were hoping to do without them, as space magic doesn’t work when you ask it “Find me any enemies in front of my location”, but anyone with sight and even a basic understanding of Space magic could attempt to locate it, so your main hope is to see if you can close the distance fast enough to catch Dio, Dis, and any other demons off guard.After about twenty minutes of waiting, you can hear the sounds of a heavy caravan off in the distance. Your eyes now switching between the sky and woods in front of you to see what is going to be incoming. You can hear the enemies, but you can’t see them yet.A large, bright object can then be seen going off in the noonday sky, almost lighting up the forest akin to a second sun. Nearly a half a second later, you can feel the sensation of your skin suddenly getting drier as Amanda’s machine activates.“EVERYONE! ATTACK!” Erika roars from her tree branch location, causing your group to jump out and swing through the trees.Yells of astonished shocked can be heard from the Pride Demons up ahead, but quickly deafened out by the sounds of battle cries and explosions.Flying out with your wings over the battlefield, you can see that the Pride Demon has a rather large force... In fact a bit larger than you expected. Not only are Dis and Dio there with their elite guards, but seeming hundreds of other demons are in the same location. Not just Simoians, but rather creatures like broken Succubi Soldiers, Simoians, Balorgs, the shadowy dog creatures known as Braghests, and the long snake like Cindoo’s with their armoured and spiked silver exoskeletons.
[2/3]“And here I was getting bored!” Dis laughs from his mount, his blade leaping out of his hand to instantly bisect an incoming Belkarian. He doesn’t get another chance however when Luna immediately opens fire upon him, showing him with multicoloured beams of light that seem to open up from all around him, forcing him on the defensive.“Lord Dio, our ice magic doesn’t work!” A nearby Pride Demon exclaims.Lord Dio forms what appears to be a massive ice sword in his hand, using to swat aside a Wrath Demon mercenary like a gnat.“Our individual spells still work! Use them with Pride men, a symbol of your own personality that you shall carve into the bodies of these ignorant wrenches!”“...Hahaha! What the hell are you going to do with those mortal bears!?” two Simoians laugh as they see Terra next to her bear friends she talked to earlier.“They told me they were hungry.” Terra simply says holding up her hands to form what appears to be two green-brown spheres in her hands before shattering them. The polar bears next to her suddenly seem to massively grow in size, double the size of normal bears. Their teeth elongate into daggers and claws into nearly swords, their fur seems to become a bed of spikes, eyes glowing a deep red as they look at their newfound pray. “And they agreed to help in exchange for food.” Terra says before pointing at the now terrified unit. “Freddy. Kruger. Kill.”“Dio!” You yell out from above as you desend for a clear shot. “It’s time that you pay for yo-”Just as you’re about to get a clear shot at Dio, you can hear the sound of something landing behind you. Turning around, you can see an all too familiar silhouette standing behind you, rags blowing off it’s weapon to show a large black gunaxe.“...NO! NOT YOU!” Mina loudly exclaims at the Draugr. “GO AWAY!”“Relax. We go nearly a dozen people with us here this time...” Brodin menacing says as he holds up his scythe.
[3/3]As Brodin says this, the Draugr holds up his hand, a strange black flame coming from it, before suddenly closing it. Darkness seems to squirt out from the hands and onto the ground, which quickly begin to grow in the shape of several well armed and armoured robots, easily technology on par with the Miyian superscientists.“Oh they’re just soloigrams.” Alex says throwing a rock at one of them, only causing a loud plink before falling to the ground. “...Or... maybe actual soldiers.”“A Miyian Mercenary!? Very well then!” Lord Dio says pointing his blade towards the Draugr. “I, Lord Dio, accept your challenge vile scum!”“In the name of Ruin.” the female masked units say as they begin to rush towards your allies, the Draugr in the dead center of them heading towards you.You quickly roll to the side, expecting another counterattack in a split second. But the counterattack doesn’t come. Instead it speeds by you in a blink of an eye before dashing towards Dio....What!? Why is it att-That bastard! He’s after ownership of Old TO! He’s actively working with the Miyians in order to gain control of Old TO and try to expel all of the Okarians out from the city! He's not after you at all this time!
>>33877082Trip Our clone with his own shadow. Mina and Alex engage the Drauger in CQC. We go after Dio. Start with trying to spear his heat with his shadow
>>33877182Agreed. Its intensely irritating how he seems to ignore all precautions we take around him.
>>33877082Where's that Vanilla paladin? Have her nuke the twit for us.
>>33877423Rescuing the leaders currently
>>33877964Ah, never mind then.
“Why the hell do you always find a way to circumvent anything I lay out for you! You’re more stubborn than my sister!” you proclaim. “Alex! Mina! Stall him!”“On i-” Mina is stopped by one of the Miyian combat grunts, barely dodging a mace that swings in front of her before bending over like a reed for the second attack.“Une moment Madam Brooklyn!” Alex replies, clashing his sword with another mace from the Miyian combat suit....OK. Brooklyn Draugr also seems to have quite the powerful minions as well.Looking back onto the battle, you can see Brooklyn Draugr heading towards Lord Dio. Lord Dio charges towards the Draugr, swinging his mighty blade of ice at the Draugr that easily cuts down one of the nearby trees in mid swing with no effort.The Durugr however seens to get on his knees, sliding along the ground as he cuts the legs of Lord Dio’s land wyvern mount from under it. Lord Dio stumbles onto the ground just as the Draugr leans back on the ground and fires a black blast of energy at Lord Dio. Lord Dio seems to barely react in time, slamming his sword into the ground, blocking the attack from your Draugr self.“Ah yes! A worthy foe for one such as I, Lord Dio!” Lord Dio brags in a happy tone as he stands up.(For any of these results you can elect to get angry, getting angry increases your battle power as an Okarian but makes it harder to retreat in battle. Also remember to roll for battle actions now. Remember you roll for attacks, but defensive is passive)A) Uproot tree with Darkness tentacles, smack people with itB) Attempt to use a White Hole Smasher to hit the Darugr’s Minions, Dio, and the Draugr himself with an AoE attackC) Make an Annhilator Axe attack on someone.

Also, for future reference, all of our orders are obviously relayed using telepathy. And since when could "several" combat robots stall all of our people? You've certainly implied that there remain no Miyans capable of making such devices.

[1/2]“No! This is supposed to be my battle!” you say taking out your axe, floating up into the air with the axe now hovering in between you.As you do this, the Draugr on the other side of you also seems to float up into the air, mimicking your movements as his weapon and the red lines in his blindfold start to glow.From then on, your movements and the Draugr’s are nearly synced. Purple spell circles appearing both in front of you as you both throw annihilator orbs into the circle. Your respective weapons coming down directly into the middle of this spell circle.“Silence you peasant wrench! This is a battle between worthy foes!” Dio roars out as he runs towards the Draugr. The Draugr still appears to be concentrated on maintaining the spell, holding onto his weapon as Dio seems to charge into it.“...AND YOU WON’T BE TAKING THAT AWAY FROM ME THIS TIME YOU SON OF A BITCH!” you roar as you fire off your stream of darkness lasers from the spell circle, each of them pouring out towards the nearby Miyian automatons, Dio, and the Draugr. Draugr also fires his off, all of them directly into Dio point blank. You miss three of the eight of the automatons in the area, but you’re happy that you got both Dio and the Draugr.You know what’s happening in each of the dark spheres that engulf your victims. Instead they are being pummeled by Annhilator shots from all directions, a delicate darkness shell from the outside preventing the entire thing from exploding.
[2/2]“NOW!” you yell, taking your axe out from the circle, and holding it above your head. “GET OUT OF MY SIGHT YOU ANNOYING LITTLE SHIT!”You bring your axe down, cutting your spell circle in half. The delicate spell that was maintaining the giant darkness sphere’s crack, reacting to the light coating inside before each one is engulfed in a massive explosion. Wood, snow, and splinters fly everywhere as the one explosion containing Dio and the Draugr are extra large since it also had the Draugr’s attack.Your vision practically becomes red as you look for both the Draugr and Lord Dio, seeing them as soon as they emerge from the bubble. Dio is flung back by the explosion, crashing through a tree before landing on the ground, armour cracked in multiple locations. The Draugr is smoking, damaged by the attack but appears to be faring better than Dio at the moment. It gracefully seems spring off a tree after the explosion and rush back towards Dio with the axe on his weapon.A) The bragging demon is mine! Restrict Draugr Brooklyn with Tentacles and attack DioB) The clone must die! Go after the Draugr while he’s focused on Dio!C) Let the Draugr and Dio fight it out for a round, take this time to charge up a massive laser or Annhilator orb for next round.D) Other
Rolled 95>>33879069>A) The bragging demon is mine! Restrict Draugr Brooklyn with Tentacles and attack DioAlso, the description implied that we would hit some of the robots. Did we manage to free up any of our comrades?
>>33879123Most likely. Right now Brooklyn has some tunnel vision to where she's focused on Dio and the Draugr. She can still defend against attacks from anything else normally, and her battle prowess increased a bit.
Rolled 2>>33879123This is an important question. Also, 8 is a bit high for "several.">>33879069A) The bragging demon is mine! Restrict Draugr Brooklyn with Tentacles and attack Dio>>33879205Get them to tie up the Drauger
Rolled 99>>33879069A) The bragging demon is mine! Restrict Draugr Brooklyn with Tentacles and attack Dio.We need to focus on getting the last hit here. While we can attack Dio, the turn after this should probably be devoted to doing so, if not absolutely necessary.
>>33879307Not really. Getting the final blow is good, but if we fail we just have to beat the Drauger unconscious again and he'll lose the title.
>>33879359And with space magic at Good + 1, all it needs to do is teleport away to keep the title.
>>33879379That's not how it works. His magic is slightly more effective than ours, but he doesn't have in combat teleportation I don't think. He basically stored all the robots in his own shadow.
>>33879123>>33879225I find it funny how the first roll was a critical success, but the next a critical failure.Dice be swingy tonight
>>33879418Fortunately, you take the higher of two rolls, so the second doesn't matter.
You quickly lash out at the Draugr with malicious intent. Your shadow seems to leap from your body, rushing towards the Draugr and grabbing his ankle in an instant. He tries to cut it off, but is quickly latched onto several other tentacles in the area.“What!? Who dares interrupt the duel between I, Lord Dio, and my opponent!?” Lord Dio barks out.“ME!” you immediately roar as you dash into firing range at Dio.“PEASANT! HOW DARE YOU YOU INTERRUPT OUR DUEL!” Lord Dio screams at you, his well groomed face of a mortal man in his late 50’s says with light blue hair. “This place is none for you, stand aside peasant!”You let Lord Dio’s magically charged words bounce off the middle finger you give him.“...MEN!? WHO AM I!?” Dio roars towards his men.“The supporting pllar of Old TO!” “A brilliant swordsman!” “The unflinching mountain of ice that doesn’t fall!”“The mountain of ice it is!” Lord Dio replies, his armour seeming now to slowly take some snow off the ground until it eventually encases him into an icy tomb.You’ve read about this before. This isn’t ice magic. It’s an ability Pride Demons have to increase their own prowess in a certain field, and for Dio that means his defense just increased several notches.A) Attack Lord Dio (Insert attack here, or look at the previous suggestions in posts for ideas)B) Attempt a Demonology roll to find out a counter for this power.

I'm the black flame huntress, and that pathetic undead copy is interrupting MY DUEL. Now hurry up and die, I want to get this over with so I can play with Dis again, we never did finish our last fight."
>>33879820Upping his defence has probably dropped his speed due to encumberment..."Oh, have I offended you Delicate Sensibilities? Are you going to sulk now that I have interrupted your 'Duel' with the Undead over there? Then Accept This As My Apology!"fire off a Narrow Spark at him. Drill though that armour.

"Are you blind, Dio? It was my attack that bested you beforehand, or is your mind so far-gone that all you can focus on is an easy victory?" you taunt him.The vein in Lord Dio’s head nearly pops out of his skull. “Peasant! I, Lord Dio, was going to take it easy on you, peasant, but now you leave me, Lord Dio, no choice! You, peasant, will not be fit for the slave pits after!”Hm... Judging from how he constantly clarifies the subject, or more rather the subject’s station as perceived to Lord Dio, it appears that Lord Dio is using a type of Pride Demon magic that works by solidifying his identity and role within the world. Likewise, it appears most of his powers are literally fueled from his own ego and what others perceive him as. If Lord Dio was unsure of who he was and his men could not reaffirm (AKA: Asskiss) him of who he is, then most of Dio’s powers go out the window. In short, he’s more powerful when those in awe of him are around him.Dio quickly charges towards you, closing the gap of melee range between you quickly. Looking over at the Draugr for a brief second, you can see that he’s still stuck in the darkness tentacles for the time being.A) Clear up Mina so she can hit Dio with Emotion Control, causing the feelings of doubt within him firstB) Find SOME way of making sure Dio’s men cannot provide emotional support to Dio.C) Other (Use previous options as examples)
Rolled 23>>33880834>B) Find SOME way of making sure Dio’s men cannot provide emotional support to Dio.Soligrams for everyone. Also, get someone over to tie up the Draigr
>>33880878Also, darkness form its intimidation bonus is a nice perk for the whole distracting asskissing and causing doubt..
Rolled 83>>33880834>B) Find SOME way of making sure Dio's men cannot provide emotional support to Dio. Dio's underlings are going to be easier targets than he is
Rolled 26>>33880834>>33880878 and >>33880932 sound good
Alright, getting tired now.Gonna go to bed, so expect the thread to be back up in 8 or so hours, give or take an hour.
Rolled 99>>33880834B) Find SOME way of making sure Dio’s men cannot provide emotional support to Dio.C) Other (Get Angry)Load them with enough Aether to do 3 rounds of Suggestion at max Aether Burn. Twist what they've been saying to discourage Dio.>>33880932He'd probably interpret it as a worthy challenge. Now, his guards might get a bit worried over it, but he probably wont lose his cool.However, Sandact might allow the use of Light Form, if we get angry enough.
I suggest freeing up mina to use emotion control. Humm if emotional boost requires line of sight black out all the light around dio should cut him off.Another thing is that we can do is use preform to make him think he is way out of his league; of course backed up by shadow/ light magic. What i really want to do but most likely won't work is use mind magic to fake a very angry missive from Arcturus to Dio. "I am very disappointed with you Dio. You may be blind to the mess you caused but my spies are not. I just learned that your stupidity started a revolt and on top of that YOU LEFT YOUR POST! Dio you are Herby striped of your tittle until further notice and you better hope that you prove that you are still useful for something." even if he thinks it is a fake it could detract him enough to knock him off kilter. After all Arcturus would be very mad if he heard about this.
>>33880834A) Clear up Mina so she can hit Dio with Emotion Control, causing the feelings of doubt within him firstWhy is the Draugr so meta?
Awake now.Let's see about updating
Seeing that Lord Dio’s powers are fueled by his asskissing minions, you decide that you ought to resolve some of that.Your bloodshot eyes trail over to the minion’s that both the Draugr and Dio brought with him. Deciding that you had enough of these bastards, you summon up a large soligram division to try and deal with both of them. The Soligrams rush towards their enemies, and shocking some of them even land attacks and dodge their incoming attacks this time around. A lot of the soligrams heavily damage wound Dio’s guard, and only some are left in critical condition. The Draugr’s friends seem to be not doing any better either.“Soon you too shall fall under his name.” one of the Miyian automatons say before it explodes, freeing up Brodin.“Brodin! MINA!” You instruct him.“I’m on it, quit yelling...” Brodin mumbles as he then throws his scythe towards Mina’s unit in an attempt to attack it.Dio’s is now within melee range with you, his sword coming down on top of your head and nicking you on the side, deceptively fast for something so large. While you armour appears to have stopped a serious threat into what appears to be a glancing blow, you can suddenly feel what appears to be a large chill coming up over your system. The freeze of winter now becoming hellishly hot as it spreads through your body.Meanwhile the Draugr in his location appears to be finished cutting off all the major tentacles, freeing that bastard up to attack again...A) Have Mina hit Dio with Emotion controlB) Have Leona use a Wind Control spell to nullify sound in the area, so Dio cannot hear his minion’s asskissing.C) Actually work with the Draugr on an attack in order to see if you can bust through his armour.D) Other (See previous for ideas)
>>33887609>B) Have Leona use a Wind Control spell to nullify sound in the area, so Dio cannot hear his minion’s asskissing.Mina's a bit busy now
>>33887609>B) Have Leona use a Wind Control spell to nullify sound in the area, so Dio cannot hear his minion’s asskissing.Also, shadow jump away from Melee range. Any allies that have been freed up go after the drauger. Keep him away from this fight.
Rolled 80>>33887688Forgot a roll
>>33887609B workssomething like C would be fine, but there is no need to directly work with the draugr, just keep Dio between brooklyn and the draugr and it will naturally happen
Rolled 23>>33887686forgot to roll
Rolled 36>>33887733i guess i forgot to roll too?
“LEONA!” You bark out to her. “CUT THE SOUND! NOW!”“B-But I’m healing s-”“DO IT!” you scream at her.“Y-Yes!” Leona says in a terrified tone, quickly summoning up electricity in her hands before pointing it into your general location.The entire area surrounding you and Lord Dio becomes silent as death itself. The sounds of the chaotic battlefield that was rang in your eardrums is no more, an almost eerie sensation that sends small chills up your spine.The Draugr, now free of his tentacles, takes this time to blast off towards towards Dio in a burst of speed. Taking the advantage against Dio, the Draugr appears to slam the spiked end of his weapon into Dio’s armour, before quickly flipping his weapon around and slamming it directly into the hole in Dio’s ice armour. The immense pressure from the axe cracks his armour bit by bit, until the Draugr’s struggles pays off, axe sliding off with a slick trail of blood on the edge of his axe. For a second you’re worried that you were not the one to kill that bastard, but it appears Dio is still standing, now shouting something at the Draugr in the zone of silence. Probably something to do related to peasants no doubt.As this happens, Mina walks over to you in the zone of silence. She tries to shout in order to be heard, but it appears nothing is getting through.
Rolled 85>>33887979...we have a telepath. have Mina engage the Drauger. We finish off Dio with dark form rip and Tear
Rolled 42>>33887979I'll second >>33888032
Rolled 24telepathy sounds good, yeah
>>33888232Apologies for the delay. Had a plumbing emergency.Typing again now
Rolled 2>>33888862that sounds better than a bathroom emergency
>>33888918Well when the water main kinda burst, it's fairly problematic.
>>33888032>>33888232Hopefully Erika is near enough that she can do this (and we should be polite, I feel like we're getting a bit demanding of others, probably because we're angry).
Rolled 46>>33889169also in the middle of battle where we are acting as a commander
>>33889196This is the important bit.
You just grab Mina’s shoulder, point to the Draugr, and hope she understands.Meanwhile you take your time to slowly get used to your old friend, darkness. Your form rapidly blurs as black flames begin to pour off of you and drip onto the ground below, where an inky cloud of darkness slowly begins to take form around you. The orb of darkness follows you as you lunge at Dio while the Draugr is tied up by Mina.Tentacles of darkness launch up from the ground directly at Dio, battering his Ice armour and cracking it like a stone egg. Dio meanwhile reacts by throwing a spear of ice at you before your form is completely consumed by darkness. The ice spear’s path is deverted by your armour and magics, but has a shocking bit of force behind it. You’re not sure if Amanda’s armour she made for you can take another blow like that from Dio.A quick glance to the side shows that Mina has the Draugr occupied for now, but you’re not sure how long it will last.(Insert a way in how you want to attack Dio, or do what you want)
Rolled 89>>33889243Turn his shadow against him. Entangle him, spear his heart, and then spread inside him until he falls apart in a shower of gore.
>>33889285damn, that's brutal.
>>33889243we already have sound nullifiedmake shadow in front of his eyes so he is blinded as well, then coup de grace him
Rolled 33>>33889243I'll second >>33889285
>>33889196>>33889225This kinda brings up something I'd been thinking about. Lionheart Aura is a pretty cool ability that I think it might be in-character for Brooklyn to take at some point (not too much, but some). It gives everyone bonuses to moral and mental checks.>>33889225Use White Hole Smasher because it's our highest-damage attack that doesn't cost all of our aether. If we could combine >>33889285 and >>33889336 into the attack, awesome, if not, that's fine too.
[1/2]You decide to take this chance by using Dio’s very own shadow against him. He seems relieved for a brief moment, but finally seeming to catch on that something is very wrong just as a strand of darkness grabs hold of his sword arm. Taking two tentacles that form out of the ground, you batter against the back of Dio’s armour, great pieces of ice shattering off his armour in an almost shotgun like formation all around you. A piece of ice wizzes by your cheek cutting it while another seems to embed itself partically within your leg, but your fury allows you to ignore the pain. All of this will be worth it when Dio is finally dead.Once the gap in Dio’s armour is battered open, you take your time charging up a spear of darkness that will eventually rip directly through his heart, splitting apart his body and ending this once and for all.It’s then you can see the Draugr near Mina suddenly dissolve into smoke then appear directly behind Dio, waiting this exact moment to play his hand before he beats you to the punch, slamming the spike on the back of his weapon directly into Dio’s back. Your eyes widen in horror as you see Dio cough up blood from his mouth. His very fall towards the ground appearing to be in slow motion as the life leaves his body......Before Dio plants his foot towards the ground, refusing to go down. At this point, you can feel the very ground begin to shake, in what feels to be a massive earthquake in the area. Pillars of Ice nearly as tall as the trees erupt up from the ground while other trees fall over. Looking over at Dio, the wrathful Lord slowly begins to stand up. The frost around the air seeming to block all other views towards Dio aside from his red eyes.
[2/2]Mina and the Draugr seem to be on the course to taking Dio down immediately, but are only blown away by ice erupting below their feet.“NOW! BEHOLD MY TRUE FORM!” Dio roars in a voice so loud that even Leona’s silence barrier is broken. Lord Dio then screams, and the last thing you see of him is a massive cocoon of ice flying up around him before begin flung away from the ice.Flying through a nearby tree branch and hurting your wing a bit, you tumble down on the ground before looking up in the air. Lord Dio seems to now tower above you all. A literal giant being at least 50 feet in height, his sword the size of literal buildings while his bread is replaced with that of pure ice. His breath comes down from his mouth, eyes glowing a deep blue with all the fury that winter contains. “DIE PEASANT!” Dio roars from above the treetop, bringing his weapon down upon you. The weapon seems to quickly fill your eyes, as if the entire weapon is an infinite plane with no end in sight...A) “YOU ARE HUGE! THAT MEANS YOU HAVE HUGE GUTS! RIP AND TEAR!”B) “...WHAT!?” (Attempt a demonology roll to figure out what the hell Dio just did)C) Other
Rolled 44>>33889813>A) “YOU ARE HUGE! THAT MEANS YOU HAVE HUGE GUTS! RIP AND TEAR!”I swear, what does it take to kill this asshole? We've been rolling extremely high all fight too. He's rappidly approaching the Drauger in sheer annoyance

Rolled 19>>33889872>I swear, what does it take to kill this asshole? We've been rolling extremely high all fight too. He's rappidly approaching the Drauger in sheer annoyanceyep, he's getting that way
>>33889872True. The fight has past its fun portion and gotten a bit annoying.Oh, just wanted to mention: but for me the Drauger is not a fun villain.>>33889930We'll be fine. We're substantially stronger than him and have barely been scratched.
Rolled 89>>33889918>Rolled 1d100: 14>>33889949>Rolled 1d100: 19right, time for me to turn my dice off
Rolled 83>>33889969good work
>>33889872He's the second-in-command to the lord of Canada. We should be rocking boss music right now.
>>33889872Dio's specialty is health, endurance, and his ego.Unlike the Draugr he can die though.
>>33890054No he's not. He's a Baron, the 2nd in command of Duke Arturis is probably either in his castle with him, or in charge of New TO, the governmental center of the region.>>33890058Honestly, I think most of my frustration with the fight is the damned Drauger. He's intensely annoying, and not in the good way.
[1/2]The huge sword of ice in front of you clearly has no safe spot to dodge in your eyes, so the only other thing left to do is obvious to you. You quickly make a large copy of your axe in darkness form, easily enough to block the side of the sword as it drives itself towards you. You brace yourself, but the force is still enough to slam you against the ground. Holding your weapon up, you can see the abominable Lord of Old TO bringing his sword up to slam down upon you again.You quickly rise up from the crater you were in, taking your monstrous darkness axe and throwing it against Lord Dio with an explosive twist. It flies directly towards him, hitting his armour square in the chest with an explosion that rattles the trees in all of the forest. But as the explosion clears, your eyes go wide only to see your attack didn’t do a damn thing to him. The enraged Lord of Old TO breathing out a stream of supercold vapor from his mouth.The Draugr also seems to react, flying up to Lord Dio and trying to blast him in the same spot you hit him with your axe, only for Dio to swat the Draugr out of the sky like a fly. The Draugr speeds towards the ground and collides with it in a massive plump of snow.“Shit, I was hoping the bastard wouldn’t have this.” Sebastien mutters under his breath. “Have what!?” you ask.
[2/2]“It’s a high level Pride Demon skill called, ‘Driven Beyond Death’, only able to be used when the user is near the brink of death. Aside from growing into a monster, they become nearly invulnerable to any sort of attack.” Sebastien says pointing his gun at Dio and firing, the mighty anti-tank rifle seeming to bounce off his armour like a raindrop. "His magic and offensive skills also increase dramatically as well. It wears off after about... Two minutes though."“That monster will kill us all in two minutes!” you reply. "Isn't there any way we can kill it!?"“I said nearly invulnerable. Any solid hit should take him down, but the problem is we’re going to need an attack of incredible power to pull this off.” Sebastien replies as he reloads his rifle. “...I’m too sober for this crap.” Brodin complains after hearing Sebastien."Oh! I know! Let's just punch him REALLY hard!" Mina suggests"Look out!" Sebastien says as he ducks behind a nearby tree.Looking up at Lord Dio, you can see the mighty giant take in massive breath of air before expelling it in a massive roar down at you, Brodin, and Mina. Jagged pillars of ice erupting from the ground while trees themselves are snap frozen into pillars of ice instantly.A) Fire off a Final Buster SparkB) Call your father over for a Father so- er Daughter Buster Spark attackC) Teamwork everyone into slamming Dio with their most potent attacks all at onceD) Other

Rolled 86>>33890439>A) Fire off a Final Buster SparkI'm personally in favor of this option, but that's because from what I understand its important that we get in the killing blow for the title thing. Won't a combination attack cause issues?
Rolled 12>>33890537the only important thing is that the draugr doesnt get it
>>33890580Dude, speak for yourself. I've waited a year and a half for this moment. I certainly don't want it fucked up. changing >>33890483 to >>33890537
Rolled 78>>33890605that "moment" is inevitable unless brooklyn dies or somethingif any of the people under us get it they can pass it to us, but its not the important thing in this fightwe need to get back the clan leaders
>>33890537I'd suggest having all-but-one of us attack Dio to create an opening which we exploit with White Hole Smasher. The final person is there to Fuck with the Draugr when it attempts to kill-steal again.I also wish we knew the status of the prisoners.
>>33890634Allowing the Draugr to get the kill means Beck gets the title, though. That's really dangerous.
Rolled 9>>33890495 herechanging to seconding >>33890537 we should get everyone else to interfere and hold back the draugr
>>33890634>if any of the people under us get it they can pass it to us, but its not the important thing in this fightTo me it is. There's a reason I've repeatedly called for people to screen the Damned Drauger for us so we can go 1 on 1 with this prick.>>33890644Works for me
Rolled 31>>33890671yes, hence why i said that the only important thing is that the draugr doesnt get itno need to pull a stupid move for brooklyn specifically to do it when we lose nothing if we work with all of our people
Little long part, but hopefully it'd be worth it
>>33890699>no need to pull a stupid move for brooklyn specifically to do it when we lose nothing if we work with all of our peopleExcept possibly the primary motivation of about a 1/3rd to 1/2 of our player base.
>>33890699Sounds good.Quick tactics thing: We shouldn't use Buster Spark here. We'll be left with no aether and there's still more battle to fight.
Rolled 31>>33890888except no, because there is nothing to be gained by any measureif one of our peeps gets the kill, they pass the gains to us
>>33890930Pretty sure we have to beat them up first. Plus, I'd personally have it as clear as possible.
Definitely AGAINST using up all of our power. That's extremely reckless and should only be done when we are desperate.
As a clarify of what to expect, and hopefully to avoid a shitstorm in the process.I started writing after >>33890537.By this point, C appeared to be winning so I was going with they.Normally I don't announce the results early like this, but I wanted to stop people hurling nasty hateful things at each other, hopefully.
>>33890888Then we just challenge them to a duel later. First to three touches, magic that distracts allowed, highly damaging stuff not allowed.
>>33890930Yeah then kinda>>33890966As long as Brooklyn clearly got the final blow, I'm cool. Otherwise, yeah, you should probably rewrite
>>33890966Thank you, Sand.
>>33890977>>33890945i very much doubt that we need to beat up someone who wants to hand it over amicablythat doesnt make any kind of sense
Rolled 4>>33890966So what are you going with now? because everyone changed their votes and consensus...If you keep going with C thats just going to cause more shitstorms for ignoring all our votes and railroading ahead...
>>33890966I'd rewrite to take peoples desires into account personally.
>>33890966>By this point, C appeared to be winning so I was going with they.Except now everyone who voted for that changed their votes...Please tell me your not going with that.
>>33890966Honestly, I'd rewrite. The "lord" faction tends to get screwed over when it comes to grey area's like this.
>>33891041>>33891027>>33891018It doesn't make much of a difference since the result would be the same (except Brooklyn loses all aether with the buster). The roll was good for C, so metagaming or not, I'm betting the results were good with the team up.
>>33891027>>33891041>>33891059I have taken people's desires into account here, and I believe the next part should hopefully make everyone happy. All I ask is that you read all of the next parts before ripping off my head or jumping to conclusions.
>>33891099>I'm betting the results were good with the team up.Except that leaves the Draugr open to steal the kill like Sand is probably going to do just because it's so fucking annoying.Also, I doubt which vote the roll was for matters
>>33891099What you don't seem to understand is that for some anons the process as much as the results
>>33891132except the buster spark leaves the draugr even more open to steal the killwe need to do the most decisive show of force here
>>33891130Ah good, thanks, your post was not exactly clear on the subject.
>>33891155At times I wonder if Squirrelking has better grammar and spelling than me.
>>33891154Exactly. All we need is a clear shot/lucky hit here.
>>33891180probably? i mean, i dont know who squirrelking is and im not trying to be mean or anything, but...>>33891196no, we need the most decisive show of force, before the draugr gets his bigger shadow+light dick in the act and steals the killwaiting for a "lucky" shot to finally work isnt going to do it, and going all in on it now makes it even worse if we arent luckymeanwhile if everyone focuses, we have by far the best chance to bring the guy down AND doing it before the draugr can
>>33891196And what you seem unwilling or unable to accept is that people are willing to deliberately risk that in order to give Brooklyn an unambiguous case for lordship. The trappings of power is that important.
>>33891272the trappings of power are something that brooklyn already has guaranteed
>>33891283Perhaps. On the other hand, after a year and a half, some people are getting impatient. Especially since our attempts to do so earlier tended to be ignored.
>>33891316no perhaps about iteither brooklyn gets power or diesthats the reason brooklyn has been supporting the queens for all this time in the first placefurthermore, brooklyn already has tons of power - not to mention just plain being really strong magically, look at all the pull in succubus society and our own little group of murderhobos
>>33891364>furthermore, brooklyn already has tons of power - not to mention just plain being really strong magically, look at all the pull in succubus society and our own little group of murderhobosThe issue is that that power does not take the form of formal relationships, which is what they/we rather explicitly want. And by rather explicitly, I mean "essays have been penned."
>>33891238>>33891272My thoughts on the matter are distract, deny the Draugr, and get the kill. Can you see anyone else in our group wanting that power/responsibility?
>>33891437Amanda and Ada.
[1/3]“We need him dead AND WE NEED HIM DEAD RIGHT THE HELL NOW!” you shout out over the battlefield at Dio, as if your own roar would somehow stop Dio’s own voice.The wave of ice washes over your location, just as you erect a bullet of darkness for yourself. The ice manages to crash through the barrier, shards of ice flying up into your flesh. But you don’t care. You need a good foothold and firing angle, so you’re going to kill this bastard NOW!“...Everyone! I have a plan!” Erika says flying up above the ground. “Brodin, you have darkness tentacles and your avatar! Make sure that the the Draugr doesn’t get close under any circumstances!”“It’s time for rOuNd TwO yOu BaStArD...” Brodin’s voice warps and changes as he slowly begins to transform into the nightmarish figure of the Grim Reaper once more.“He’s not getting away from me this time!” Mina shouts out at the Draugr, following closely behind Brodin.“Everyone! Timing is important! Make this count!” Erika calls out to your group, letting her take the tactical reigns for the time being. You, Erika, Sebastien, and Nalika line up in order in front of the creature.(MAXIMUM BREAK!)“TEN THOUSAND PEASANTS ARE STILL ONLY PEASANTS!” Dio roars in front of your group.(“Distract him from a distance!”) Erika says as she seems to levitate a bow in front of her, firing off arrows with rapid and alarming speed.“Commencing covering fire!” Sebastien says pulling out a single handed revolver, taking fire on Lord Dio.“Let me show you what I thought of your residential policies!” Nalika roars, using all six of her arms to fire a barrage of energy bolts at Dio.“This is for the hell each and every one of your men put us through!” you reply, hurling explosive annihilator shots at Dio.All of the attacks seem to explode off Dio’s face, doing relatively little damage at first.(937 damage. 16387/169000 HP)
[2/2]“Dio! Your reign of oppression over Old TO ends today!” Erika yells, her psionic blade glowing a bright green as she soars past Dio in a burst of speed, coming across Dio’s chest to leave a green scar across his armour. Erika raises her hand up into the air and makes a fist, the same time the armour across Dio’s chest exploding in telekinetic power.(1987 damage. 14400/169000 HP)“Cleaning out the gun after this is a real bitch...” Sebastien complains as he fires his anti-tank rifle again, a cloud of snow being blown back from the shot. The anti-tank shot seems to bounce off at first, but is only reflected back to Dio against and again as Sebastien’s psychic force keeps the shot hitting the same general location on the armour.(1433 damage. 12967/169000 HP)Nalika takes a more direct approach, leaping up onto Dio’s chest and simply beginning to pound away at it with the fury of an meteor of pure hatred. Dozens upon dozens of strong blows landed in a incredibly short period of time, before Nalika roars out to hit Dio with all six of her arms, actually causing the giant Dio to stagger.(2635 damage. 10332/169000 HP)Which leaves you fully charged up and now ready to fire it directly in Dio’s fat face...(In which direction do you want to fire your attack?)A) UpB) Down
>>33891484B) DownBisect him from head to groin
>>33891484B), I suppose
>>33891484.up, up, down down, left, right, left, right, a, b, start!
“TIME TO FINISH THIS!” you roar as you fly up towards the head of Dio. You can see the Draugr off in the distance about to teleport, only for him to get pinned down by Darkness tentacles from Brodin.Dio hits the ground with a shockwave that is felt throughout the land, shaking all the trees in the area as he hits the ground. You’re directly on top of Dio as you land on his head, placing your hand directly head.“FINAL! BUSTER!” you scream, a bright burst of light coming from your hands as you can see Dio’s eyes fill with fear for a split second. “SSSSSPPPPAAARRRRKKKKK!”As you scream out this spell, all of Dio’s head below you is engulfed in the searing light that seems to blind the entire battlefield. Dio barely gets a chance to scream before the pillar of light rips into his skull. Peeling away his skin, muscle, and finally his bones as they’re all vaporized along with the earth below.After a few seconds, you step back from the hole in the ground you have produced, a pillar of lava now erupting from where Lord Dio’s head used to be. (13932 damage!)The battlefield seems to go dead calm, everyone now staring at the location to where you have blown off the Lord of Old TO’s head.(How do you react?)A) Beastial roar of victoryB) Heroic speech (insert)C) Intimidating speech (insert)D) Other
>>33891987D) Check out the rest of our forces and finish our objective, getting the prisoners. No need to be a showoff. Oh wait, the draugr is still around. Maybe do something about that.
>>33892082Oh right. We can't, since we just used up all of our juice.
B want to do heroic speech but we need to check on everyone.
>>33891987>A) Beastial roar of victoryHopefully while in Black Flame Huntress mode followed by >D) Check on our friends and the battle, and make sure the Draugr does not blindside usI'd vote for a heroic speech, but I can't think of anything and its 6am and I've not slept yet, so goodnight/morning and thanks for the thread Sand.
>>33892154There are mortal followers here. We are also somewhat angry, so that MAY be a way to gain Aether... A speech would give us Aether, especially if we used Perform.>>33891987B+C) "Behold the Tyrant of Old T.O., your unshakable pillar! Behold your inspiration! Behold your /leader/." Use light control to make sure everyone has a perfect view of what's going on (making sure the lighting is good and so on).Next, "Now is the time to fight for a life without shackles or oppression! For our friends, those we love, those who lost their lives, and those who can't fight! For Freedom!"D) Prioritize freeing the leaders and dealing with the Draugr.
>>33892523this sounds good
>>33892523I support this course of action...
You turn facing the crowd staring at you, dropping your black flame huntress form while letting the Lava pillar both to show off your proper lighting and dramatic effect behind you. “Behold the Tyrant of Old T.O., your unshakable pillar! Behold your inspiration! Behold your ‘leader’." you say in a gesture towards the ground of Dio’s massive corpse. “Now is the time to fight for a life without shackles or oppression! For our friends! For those we love! For those who lost their lives! For those who can't fight! For Freedom!"Upon saying this the entire crowd seems to burst into applause, now going after the quickly routed and decimated Pride Demon army. Estatic cries of joy seem to be filled with cries of equal terror from the quickly running forces.The speech managed to get quite a bit of your aether back in a single shot too.“Brooklyn! You did it!” Mina happily exclaims.“We’re not clear yet. Where’s the Draugr?” you immediately ask her.“Gone.” Brodin replies.“Gone?” you ask.“You blew off a giants head and made a volcano Brooklyn. Even the Draugr seemed impressed with your efforts, but when we looked again, he was... gone. Poof.” Brodin says making a hand gesture.You only give a sigh. You were hoping that you could at least take his body and seal it in a place never to be discovered by mankind ever again. “What of Dis and Luna?”“Dis and Luna’s fight turned out to be a bit too equal in a sense.” Sebastien replies as he takes a shot at a fleeing demon. “She teleported both him and her to some location. Luna took a few hits, but she’ll be fine.”“And the leaders?” you then ask.“Injured, but fine. Sister Teresa managed to successfully take most of them off the battlefield and into a recovery station. It seemed they tried to start the torture early.” Nalika replies.“Is... Is this really happening!?” Leona asks in shock. “D-Did we just chase the Pride demons out of Old TO!?”
Gonna go for a walk for a small break, but I'll be back soon.
>>33893012"While the Pride Demons are down, they may not be out. This is just the start, but it's a great foundation for something bigger. We have bigger problems, however. If Miyians are supporting the Draugr, I fear that Beck may be involved. We need to deal with him immediately."
>>33893012"Not quite yet but we're making headway, there are a few more issues we'll have to deal with."Such as Beck and stopping his plot.
>>33893012gather the survivors and make sure the wounded are treated.>sleeping now, good luck.
>>33893200Sounds good.Also, while we may have killed Dio, we still need to deal with the Pride Demon forces still IN Old TO... But yes, this is the first keystone on our road to victory.
>>33893876We need to get everyone out of here asap. If possible, get as many wounded to where they can be treated through a portal of our own creation.
>>33894060that might be difficult as final spark eats all aether
>>33894077Ah, but as Sandact said here: >>33893012 , speeches at the right moments restore Aether (most of it in this case).
>>33894129Ah, Fair point missed that tidbit.
[1/2]"While the Pride Demons are down, they may not be out. This is just the start, but it's a great foundation for something bigger. We have bigger problems, however. If Miyian’s are supporting the Draugr, I fear that Beck may be involved. We need to deal with him immediately." you reply.“But first, we celebrate!” Mina exclaims.“Celebrate? We still have work to do.” Nalika exclaims in a slightly irritated tone.“She has a point. Right now much of our forces are going to be battle weary. After a major victory such as this, one has every right to celebrate their hard earned victory.” Erika replies.“Very well! Party all night!” Mina loudly proclaims, putting her fist up into the air.******
[2/2]Heading back to Old TO later by portals, you can see the mass celebration in the streets by nearly all the Succubi. The Old World builds appear to be even more battle scarred followed with blow apart buildings, but nearly everyone else is seeming to cheer for their victory as your group of soldiers walks down the streets in victory. Many people can be seen pulling over the statues of the past Pride Demon leaders of the city, while a few high ranking demons can be seen shackled up for display in the town square, people throwing snowballs at them while laughing.Heading over to the castle of Lord Dio, you can still see the place is a minefield of debris and battle scars on both the inside and outside. It’ll take a little bit of time before things return to normal. However the very entrance itself is enough to seemingly fit half of Fort Hope’s Langy family castle inside of it, even if damaged.“Wow! This place is huge!” Mina exclaims at the entrance.“And it’s aaaalllllll ours.” you smugly say.“Brooklyn, if I may ask a few important things before we start celebrating.” Nalika asks.“What’s that?” you ask.“There are going to be some... issues in the city. Some I’ve already heard some of the overeager succubus guards talk about.” Nalika replies. “The eagerness of some of the Succubi to mistreat their prisons, including talk about mass raping them. There’s also the matter of what to do with the captured Pride Demon forces.”[spoilers]Those soldiers are your subjects. Subjects under you will pledge complete obedience to you, Brooklyn, or face proper punishment.[/spoilers]
>>33894810you can just do ctrl-s for spoiler brackets, no need to type them out yourself
>>33894810No mass raping. However, breaking a succubus involuntarily is punishable by soul drain. The crime will be retroactive, even if thats in violation of good legal principles. Which is otherwise illegal. Also, all restrictions on succubus employment are obviously revoked. Oh, and we need to see how our pet is doing, so open a crying window
>>33894810uh>>33894923yeah, this is finetalk to queens about our victory and stuffmaybe ask them what they think about turning excel in the near future
>>33894923Oh, and science and superscience restrictions are also revoked, though you do need a permit for a WMD
>>33895047yeah that tooall random restrictions on everything about succubi should be revoked, like the no shapeshifting thing or the "ayarians are just illegal in general" thing
>>33894810"We don't have the luxury of the military the combined Lust and Human forces had before the war. We can't let ourselves become drunk in the face of what will be something VERY difficult.Any soldiers and anyone else loyal to the Pride Demons who have been captured are to be declared prisoners of war. They will not be harmed and will NOT be tortured. Anyone truly monstrous will have a fair trial when such a thing can be set up.Any guards who abuse prisoners will face open punishment. Officers or anyone in a command position who does this or allows it to take place, blind eyes especially, will face extreme punishment, including stripping of their rank, imprisonment, or death.We can't fall into propagandic stereotypes and have to claim the moral high-ground in this.
>>33895108We should restrict the use of weapons that require clean-up and the like. Cluster-bombs killing innocents are NOT what we want. Design or use of superweapons should be limited due to the scope required. If anyone wants to help develop something like that, we can help them as long as they're deemed psychologically stable and ethically competent.
>>33895276sure, i guess, but no need to go overboard on thisremember the scope and context of this quest
>>33894810I suggest that we invite the Leaders to our Castle to discuss the matter of Laws and Regulations.>>33895215sounds good for immediate implementation...
>>33895321Basically, just throw out some guidelines for people: Weapons should be used to kill enemy soldiers and their constructs, not destroy the land. Be energy efficient, don't kill innocents, don't design ultra-aids.
“A few orders then, effectively immediately. One, no mass rapings or torture of the prison’s. Use restraint when necessary, but we’re trying to set an example that puts us above the Pride Demons, not below their level. Any guards who abuse prisoners will face open punishment. Officers or anyone in a command position who does this or allows it to take place, blind eyes especially, will face extreme punishment, including stripping of their rank, imprisonment, or death. Secondly, all restrictions about Succubi are hereby revoked. This includes things such as super science. The only thing forbidden are weapons of mass destroy or things that could take out Old TO.” You tell Nalika.“Then why don’t you tell them yourself later on Brooklyn?” Shiva asks behind you.“Pardon?” you ask, turning around to see Shiva kick a stone column aside and through the ceiling as if it were an oil world beverage container, in addition to holding large barrels in each of her hands. “...And what do you have in those barrels?”“Spirits of course! Things I’ve been saving since this day, in order to enjoy the hard work I did with all my comrades!” Shiva states.“You didn’t do a thing besides make us breakfast!” Nalika yells.“The most IMPORTANT meal of the day!” Shiva gleefully then states. “But if you’ve taken over the town, you should build good faith towards you subjects and address them directly after all~.”The air headed Wrath Demon peasant is correct. Address your subjects in a manner befitting of your new station.(What now?)
>>33894810Could we send the Pride Demon Prisoners to feed the Queens?Could we offer Death Row prisoners the option of normal execution or Death by Draining?
>>33895595yeah, sure, why not address themafter that we can talk to the succubus queens about matters such as finally freeing them properly (when were we gonna do that again?) and excel
>>33895635Hey, you're the ruler. You can very well instate such things if you wished.
>>33895678>>33895635but what would be the point in letting them decide how they get executed? they end up just as dead
>>33895595>inb4 we channel the Monarch>>33895595I would highly suggest against this, unless these are beings who are going to die and could realistically feed them. This also requires telling people about the queens, faking the sacrifices' deaths, secretly transporting them somewhere, and so on.We can still do it, it'd just be another complex set-up.
>>33895595Set up a time for a general address in the afternoon. Get some people on logistics (making sure food and trade are happening/continuing to happen). Make sure we meet with those who need persuading to continue logistics. Plan out our assault on Beck, because knowing him he'll probably decide to break the news right as we suggest everyone party hard.Make sure everyone gets ready for a party.
>>33895595We should have people spread the word of our making of a public address at a reasonable time from now. We then need to write up a speech to give; not only stating that this is the beginning of a new era but also that it is by working together as Equals that the Clan Leaders were rescued and Dio was killed.I still suggest that we arrange a formal meeting with the Clan Leaders to finally deal with the Clan War and have a Unified Race.Since we've Killed Dio and liberated Old TO, Beck cannot just sit back and withhold support when the Pride Demons retaliate as they will be after the deaths/capture of ALL Succubi, not just the ones who participated in the attack.It would also benefit Beck as we can help provide for the collage, such as potentially granting more space and/or resources...Though I also think we should suggest opening up at least a small part of the Okerian Library to the public, even if it is only the lower end books and fiction. That would help promote equality, rather than the elitism currently associated with Okerians...
“...Very well, I’ll address Old TO before the party. But in the meantime I want to get some of the best people who still know logistics and are willing to work for us. I want to know the entire state of Old TO and Edmonton as soon as possible.” You say of Nalika.“Right away Lord Browning.” Nalika says with a small bow of respect before heading off.******An hour later, once you have bandaged yourself up and treated your wounds, Amanda gets you ready for your big speech debut.“Look, I’m fine.” You say to Amanda as you prepare yourself for your speech before your subjects.“No you’re not! Your hair is still messy now stand still!” Amanda says as she brings the brush through your hair for nearly the 30th time.“Look you could pretty much drop the brush from the top of my head and it’d just call clean through to the ground!” you tell her.“No excuses! Your hair must look perfect!” Amanda says.“Brooklyn, they’re waiting for you!” Mina calls out from the balcony door.You take a deep breath to collect yourself. “I’m coming.”As you walk on outside to the outside, those in your squad are standing next to you on the balcony. But the real sight is when you look down below, seeing what appears to be hundreds upon hundreds of teaming souls down below in the courtyard, and even more of them spying from the heights of the Old World buildings off in the distance to get a better look. Cheers seem to erupt from the bottom of the crowd to the point where it can nearly be heard deep within the city itself. Everyone cheering your name, not bothering to hide it as even during the battle the soldiers on your side were quick to gossip on who killed Lord Dio and who the new Lord of Old TO would be.(You’re free to describe what Brooklyn is wearing and what your grand speech will be)
>>33896289gotta be wearing our traditional succubus lord armor, skimpy as it may be it is a sign of power and authority among our kind! We must wear it with pride!
>>33896447>>33896467What do you want to say as part of the speech though?
>>33896662hmm, working on it.
>>33896662im kind of drawing a blank on that honestly>me and public speakingpls nothe basics would just be the legal stuff about succubi no longer having random limitations on them (specific focus on the shit miyians and ayarians had to put up with here), the fact that nobody may abuse mortals and other prisoners under penalty of law and so on
>>33896289We can either wear something conservative and non-frilly or the Demon Lord armour, or something better which others prefer. If we can accentuate the Demon Lord Armour by hiding what it flaunts to make a set of clothing that is even more alluring, this would work.Beyond that, speech time. We need to start with the statement that all beings in Old T.O. are equal, regardless of their race, weither Aetheric or not, enlightened or not, making sure that this includes humans.We should also speak towards the reintroduction of other cultures, not just Succubi (showing that all cultures have importance in this new city-state).We should talk about the importance of not losing our morals and ethics and becoming what the previous rulers were/are by hurting, violating, or enslaving prisoners of war. All are equal here, as long as they in turn respect others.We may want to say something about the slave trade the succubi engage in. I think turning it from a lobotomization/slave trade into something similar to endangered servitude, like the better parts of Africa when they traded slaves. I'm not sure if we should say this right now, however, and am not sure what other posters' feelings are in regards to this. Our points here would be that we would be taking those who are slaves, giving them the ability to live in a real society, making sure they aren't violated, and allowing them to work as they choose. This obviously doesn't help those who are already slaves or whose minds may be gone.Beyond that, talk about how trade with other communities shall continue, and maybe drop something into the speech about not having tons of kids.
>>33896289I like this >>33896750Maybe add in a bit about the battle itself, commenting on how Victory was only possible thanks to the combined efforts of everyone who fought. From the Fighters Guild and all it's members, to the various Succubi Clans which gave their support, Making sure to mention that it was a Group of Myians who created and operated a device they created to an impossible schedule which crippled the Pride Demons Ice Magic helping to even up the battle...
Is nobody going to comment on how we seem to have Dio in the back of our head now?
>>33896750 here, definitely have to agree with >>33897018 in their comments on the battle.>>33897119I'm not really sure what you're trying to say, so could you say it clearer?
Alright, time to type up the speech here.
>>33897211The spoilers at the bottom of the last few posts, that seem to be in Dio's voice. referring to people as peasants, demanding absolute loyalty from any who would work under us. It calls us brooklyn, so I was guessing its actually something else and not just brook talking to himself.
>>33897211>>33897452Specifically>>33895595The air headed Wrath Demon peasant is correct. Address your subjects in a manner befitting of your new station.and>>33894810Those soldiers are your subjects. Subjects under you will pledge complete obedience to you, Brooklyn, or face proper punishment.
>>33897475Yeah, why the fuck are we receiving shit like this. This is WEIRD.Is Erika around, did she pick up anything like that?
[1/2]You come out on stage dressed your traditional Succubus Lord armour. There is a little bit of a blush on your face on how such a thing is more akin to a female swimsuit just as you’re giving a large speech to nearly an entire city and will be recorded in the history books, but those are just details.“Everyone, lend me your ears!” you say raising your arms up.The entire crowd settles down their talking in a few moments once you speak up.“My name is Brooklyn Browning, Okarian Class Succubus and new Duke of these lands. I have come here to tell you that not only our oppressed have been vanished from this city, but also that this begins a new age for us. Back in the Old World, both Succubus and human, demon and mortal existed hand in hand in harmony. But I am not going to say that I seek to bring back these times... but rather I aim to surpass them entirely!”You let the crowd below burst into cheers for a brief moment, before holding out your hand for silence once again.“But the hard part is not over, but rather it’s actually beginning for all of us. The armies of the Pride Demon will seem to be the easy part in amidst of the moral and logistical crises we face in the future. We cannot do this alone, segmented apart from each other. Rather we must band together, both Demonic and mortal, in order to forge a new and brighter future for us all! This means that we cannot compromise our moral codes, what makes us good people, while tossing aside the codes of the Old Pride Demons that only sought to oppress us! We must prove that we hold the moral high ground against our foe!” you declare out to the crowd. “So until then, I ask of you not to torture any of our previous oppressors, but to bring them to us, so that they can receive their proper punishment. Demon, mortal, it doesn’t matter. All will be equal before the law, as the law shall not bend to the whims of the demonic class only.”
[2/2]The roars of the crowd this time seem to largely come from the mortals, who see this as a way to escape the near legal immunity that demons had in general. You do however, hear some boos from Succubi.“But this isn’t a case where I have forgotten about what I am. The kind of torture and filth that our proud race has been forced to endure for untold millennia. Effective immediately, all class restrictions involving Succubi are hereby revoked and stricken from the laws of these lands.”This prompts of what sounds to be an explosion of roars and applause from down below, indeed you can see many Succubi are now actually crying in joy from the news that they heard.“As I said, all will be equal before the new law. What that new law is, is something I admit we still need to make, but it is one of my top priorities. But I can tell you what it doesn’t have, and that’s the old handover laws from the Pride Demons. The only thing I ask from my kind is that you show restraint. Please do not build any weapons of mass destruction or devices that could endanger all of Old TO in the meantime.”(Anything else you wish to add, or do you want to end your speech?)
>>33897964We should mention the battle, in the way >>33897018 suggested.I'm also considering something to say about possible changes to the human slave-trade.
>>33897964I think we're good. Leave to the inevitable city wide celebration, and check in with someone about those voices.
Seems like a few posters passed out.Leave it till morning, maybe?
>>33899181Yeah, not really sure what's going on, but it seems like there's only 2ish people here.
>>33899205Three. Just got off from work
>>33899181>>33899205i am still lurking but too tired to contribute much
“The final word I have to say is that we are not in straights so dire as to undermine our cause for celebration. Eat, drink, and be merry tonight!” You say raising your hand up into the air.“Browning! Browing! Browning!” the crowd seems to cheer you on over and over. The sheer amount of aether being produced by them is akin to a sledgehammer to your face, but in a good way.******A few hours later, all of you are inside of Lord Dio’s main dining hall, doing your absolute best to cause as much of a mess as possible with people inside eating, drinking, laughing, dancing, and all other sorts of activities. Some rather grotesque things going on, such as Mina trying to cause a large flame by farting into a candle held up by Uilodsir, backfires horrifically when Uilodsir’s hair catches fire. Causing a fair bit of laughter to come out of the group watching as Uilodsir runs around screaming until he puts his head into a punch bowl.“Ugh... The mess... Such a mess...” Nalika complains.“...Une moment! Madam Shiva! Do that... thing you did back at that bar one time!” Alex drunkenly asks Shiva.“Oh... I dunno if I should...” Shiva shyly says, blushing a deep red while holding a bottle of mead.A) Be drunk, ask her to show “That”, even though you have no idea what it means.B) Be sober, but same as A otherwise.C) Other(I just had internet problems)
>>33899205Make that 4, though attention is split between this and Mark of Chaos...
>>33899241Minor question, but is their a power we can buy that lets our followers empower us like Dio did? Though less from asskissing and more pic related.
>>33899241>C) Do not directly involve ourself in the matter...
>>33899366Oh agreed, seems like a prime directive situation. Also, we should start a pool on when our first assassination attempt will be.
>>33899340That was a Pride Demon power moreso than general one unfortunately
>>33899420Is there something similar we could get? Pride demons get all the cool powers.
>>33899241B) Be sober, but same as A otherwise.>>33899498We have Suggestion, Cloaking, and a few others. Not sure what other cool social powers Succubi have, we'd have to check with the Bards among others.
>>33899575>We have Suggestion, Cloaking, and a few others. Not sure what other cool social powers Succubi have, we'd have to check with the Bards among others.I don't think any of those are Succubi exclusive though. There is shapeshifting, but in some ways that's actually a drawback.
>>33899667Cloaking and shapeshifting are exclusive.Pride demons have roughly the same social powers as Succubi
>>33899720To be fair, both of those powers can be imitated by controls, and in the case of shape-shifting far exceeded.
>>33899498humm wondering if we could do the opposite rather. could we empower our followers? thinking for example that mortals under our command benefit from our presence. (basically buff those near us)wondering if we can get lion heart for crazy save vs fear and an equivalent of into the jaws of hell from the 40k rpg that makes followers under our command immune to fear.
>>33899773Because we're more sensitive to fear and similar emotional magic, Lionheart would be a great idea. Lionheart Aura would be what you're talking about for allies.
>>33899773>>33899895Oh, and just something to add: There are a ton of other things we can buy. Politics and Persuasion increases, Willpower increases, upgrading controls, new controls (Fate and Time seem like they'd both be useful).
It seems there is a three way tie. Guess that means I'll be doing the tiebreaker.
>>33899953Fair. So, list of things we need to do in the next week or so:Meeting with the ClansMeeting with the Other major supernatural powers in the city (vampires, ect.)deal with our Celestial Mole/pet. She could be in trouble considering how badly things have not gone according to plan for them.
>>33900162not really C has two votes>>33899366>>33899413
>>33900164Regarding our Pet... could we get her set up as the Head of some kind of Celestia Branch of something in Old TO? Keep her in the city, not to mention giving us a bit of play with what the Adventurer Groups are up to...
>>33900314Possibly. On the other hand, she explicitly stated she wants a vacation for a decade or so. Getting her a job as our handmaiden, under a psudonym of course, seems like a better idea.
You decide that it may be best to try and not involve yourself in the middle of such an affair, best to leave someone like Shiva to her own devices.Though some more concerns are starting to cross your mind. Now that you’re the official Lord of Old TO, you’re wondering how long it’d be before the Pride Demons start sending assassins at you... Or really assassins from anyone. Celestia is probably going to be another point of concern about this.Just as you continue to think about this off to the side, you are catapulted through the air, sailing across the room as an explosion rocks the center of the room. You’re literally blown through a table, quickly self-righting yourself as you look at the identity of your first assassin.“Hahahaha!” Shiva can be seen in the epicenter of the shockwave in the room, laughing as she then crushes her empty mead container between two of her hands. “I told ja I culd down it all like that...”“You... You took out the entire party!” a drunk Ada points out.“Na... I just livened it up a bit...” Shiva clarifies, tilting to the side. "I only... burped a bit..."“No! This is a... a...”“Victory.” Nalika clarifies next to Ada.“Victory party! I’m not gunna let dis slide! ERIKA!” Ada calls over to Erika. “Gimme your weapon!”“The big un or the small un...” Alex says holding up her psi-blade and a dagger.Oh this isn’t going to end well...A) Have Nalika try and talk to her mother to stop thisB) Attack ShivaC) Other
>>33900576>A) Have Nalika try and talk to her mother to stop this"Yeah, I'm not going to attack you, I'd like my reign to last more than a day. Maybe we can spar in a year or twelve though.
>>33900576>A)"Nalika, While I understand that everyone is in high spirits, and high ON spirits, could you possibly get you mother to calm down a bit? I'd rather not have my first day in office be my last..."We should also get Ada to calm down...
>>33897475I find it funny.
yeah vote A as well.try to get ada to as well maybe chanle their aggression into a drinking contest?
"Nalika, While I understand that everyone is in high spirits, and high ON spirits, could you possibly get you mother to calm down a bit? I'd rather not have my first day in office be my last." you reply standing up in the center of the room.“Yea yea I got it...” Nalika mutters, along with a few other things in a language you don’t understand. “Mom, would you mind cutting this crap out? You’re a grown woman, not some d-”It’s at this this instant you can see Shiva’s backhand make contact across Nalika’s face, a sharp crack filling the air as Shiva is shattered through the heavy stone doors on the other side of the dining hall, and into the pillars on nearly the other side of the castle.Your face goes to horror as you see Shiva’s reaction.“Haha! You’re still a bit too slow on the defense there daughter!” Shiva says with a chuckle.“Oh wow... It looks like we got a bit of a mess here...” Mina also says standing back upright. Mina tries to take a stealth attack on Shiva, gathering blue energy in her hand before launching it at her face. Shiva doesn’t even bother moving, just taking the blast to her face with a carefree smile on her face.Ada then takes the chance to desend upon Shiva with Erika’s psyblade in hand, about to bring it down onto Shiva’s head, before the attack is stopped barehanded by one of Shiva’s hands. Ada grunts as she tries to dig the blade into Shiva’s hand, but is only caught in the air by one of Shiva’s punches, Ada sailing across the room and into what remains of the food table.
>>33901255Sigh, focus on pulling the bodies out. Oh, and invite Luna over for the party. I'm surprised she missed it really.
>>33901395Luna can't leave the Library or it's forfeit to the Greed Demons, unless we murder her Greed-demon fiance.
>>33900576A) Have Nalika try and talk to her mother to stop this"Nalika, we need a training montage first and it is difficult to celebrate while bleeding. Perhaps your mother can... bake?"
>>339014721. That's wendy, not Luna2. We arranged for his assassination already. He's dead jim
>>33871813This is one of the better quests. Just thought I'd say that.
You just sigh as you watch the scene unfold. The best you can do now is to remove the bodies as they start to pile up around the area...As Ada goes tumbling off to the side, the Nitorin twins seem to react. Katlin seems to stomp on the ground, casuing a local tremor that seems to rip directly towards Shiva. Shiva wobbles around at first, but this seemed to be the plan as Katlin takes a fireball in her hand and hurls it towards Shiva. Bring drunk, she naturally misses by a country mile, the fireball hitting the end of the dining hall and exploding the stage in the back. Uilodsir runs out from the stage, on fire yet again.You can only just stare wide eyed at the scene of destruction.“You.. field! Look what you’ve done!” Katlin says pointing out.“YOU DID THAT!” you immediately yell at her.“Oh... I guess I ought to show you a real attack then~.” Shiva says raising a fist up at her side. “...A real attack? What do you mean b-”Shiva throws a single punch from her location, literally so fast that the air around her explodes out in a shockwave of force. Not only do your ears feel like they’ve exploded, but it feels as if the shockwave itself just ripped through your space barrier and armour like a hot knife through butter, before having an impact on all your organs.The sheer power of the shockwave not only impacts the air, but literally makes a small crater around Shiva, blasting chunks of rock and debris everywhere around the room like a shotgun. One of the pieces of lose debris goes directly for Katlin’s groin, impacting her there and causing a reaction of most guys tend to have when kicked in the crotch.“YOU! YOU’LL PAY FOR HITTING MY SISTER’S KITTY!” Stacy roars out, hurling gouts of fire at Shiva. Shiva simply continues to walk through the firestorm, an intense smile of a psychopath showing beneath the gaps in the flames.(What do?)
>>33902025Leave and hope nobody dies.
>>33902025Have a clerk begin writing up a bill to present to the Rage demon Empire. Be sure to pad it.
>>33902025"...Shiva, I am going to take the 'dead' to their rooms. Please don't wreck the place, I haven't even had a chance to move in properly yet... Stacy, you might want to take care of your sister rather than attempt to take revenge. Shiva will probably still be here when you've finished with Katlin..."
Yea you’re seeing where this is heading quite fast. Shiva is not going to kill anyone, but you kinda hope that she knocks some sense into everyone in the room, and that someone manages to get a clear shot to her own head.With a sigh you walk across the castle towards the location of Shiva, stopping the flow of guards that are about to rush into the room as you don’t feel like clogging the hospital. “They’re fine. Let them fight it out and just evacuate in those who are unconscious.” you tell the guards as you advance towards Nalika, who is currently sitting inside of a broken pillar. A look of dazed confusion on her face.You grab Nalika, pulling her out of the wreckage of the pillar. “Nalika, I want you to charge all of the damages incurred her tonight directly towards your mother’s current Lord. Be sure to pad quite extensively as I’d like some new statues here myself.”“Ugh...” Nalika mutters as she shakes her head.(Anything else you want to do before you head to bed?)
>>33902504A quick check in on what's her face. The Celestian.
>>33902573This. Also talk with the queens!
>>33902599Nah, Don't forget, this is a pride demon Castle. It needs to be swept for magical bugs and crap first.
>>33902630And is there a reason we can't step out of the castle?
>>33902630Point. I'm sure that his rivals tried to spy on him in any way possible, and so did all the factions in the city. It wouldn't do for them to inadvertently find something.
>>33902504Yell at Shiva to go make some cookies
>>33902694so why are we even in here in the first place
>>33902856Because Its a bitching castle. We haven't swept the place for bugs yet because we've had it for 6 hours. give us a day or two.
>>33902895and what's keeping us from going outside?
[1/2]Seeing how the castle is probably bugged to all hell right now, you decide that it’s probably not the best time to call upon the queens in order to get their advice. Only your ancestors can hazard a guess at how many remote listening spells are in this place, and that’s something you’ll need to hire a dedicated group of space users for.Instead, you retire to your abode. You do not want to sleep on anything resembling Lord Dio’s bed until the sheets are burned and then the ashed burned, so you merely settle for one of the guest rooms, which is still gigantic in it’s own right. Not so much of a room, but rather a mini-castle in of itself. A complete small washroom, magical toilet, small study, and an extremely large plush feather bed.Checking up on your pet before falling asleep, you can now see that they’re hunkered down in what appears to be the outskirts of the city. Amelia is currently sleeping, but what you find more noticeable is that two people are on watch instead of the usual one. It appears that they must be rather spooked by the recent turn of events in Old TO.The entire bed seems to melt within your body as you fall upon the blankets, fading away into a deep and blissful sleep...******
>>33902911Uh, are you suggesting we call the Queens in the middle of the street?
>>33902961The street? How about all the places we've always been doing it?Are you just trying to be random or something?
[2/2]“DEMON DUKE BROOKLYN BROWNING! I CHALLENGE YOU FOR THE OWNERSHIP OF OLD TO!” a voice suddenly roars above you.“Wa!” you say quickly rolling down to the side, missing a dagger that speeds by your head and into your pillow.“Damnit! You weren’t supposed to yell!” one girl says.“Well I have to yell, otherwise the challenge won’t be accepted!” the other one answers.Your eyes immediately snap to full clarify with the adrenalin flowing into your system. Looking on the bed, you can see what appears to be two Succubi with spears in what appear to be Pamille Church guard uniforms, while the other is a Laminian on your bed. “You’re supposed to be in the hall, not trying to kill me.” you spit at the guards.“Oh... change of plans!” The Laminian on your bed smiles as she holds up a razor sharp knife.“Guarding sucks!” says a brown haired Aide.“So we decided that it’d be more fun to become the ruler of Old TO!” the red haired Aide says as she points her spear at you, now bursting into flames as she smiles.“Don’t take it personally~.” The Laminian sweetly says....Right Demonic law. You keep what you kill.
Rolled 96>>33903003Shadow port out of range obviously, then darkness form. "You know, you might have wanted to figure out why all the Sutoba's and the other powerful succubi didn't try to take my spot first. Just a thought."
>>33903003Just kill them. May as well make examples so there aren't more in the future.
>>33903131Maybe not all of them. Leave one.And with this I am turning in for the night. Er. Morning.
>>33903003summon shadow tentacles to pin them all to the bed, Lecture on how incredibly stupid this was, then kill them
>>33903003Do >>33903098, beat the absolute shit out of them, but leave them alive. Then have them sent somewhere to learn some discipline.
>>33903208Alternatively, use shadow tentacles to pick them up and slam them into the floor repeatedly.
>>33873396>“Your Draugr friend is back. He broke out of the Laminian containment cell.” Mary states.
>>33903208why lecture them if you're going to kill them? totally pointless.kill the laminian, the Aides are too useful to casually kill. beat the snot outta them though.
>>33903270Why casually kill them? Don't lecture them, waste of energy & it's habit-forming (we don't want to give big speeches to the heroes that invaded our castle, so-to-speak).
>>33903236oh, you're that asshole who kept whining about the Drauger without providing any solutions. Fuck off.
>>33903236Yes and from the sound of it, the Miyians helped him. Which means Beck should be even higher on the shitlist.
>>33903296im not suggesting killing the aides, beating them up, yes. we do need to make an example of one though, and my vote goes to the laminian 'cuz she'll be an easier nut to crack.
[1/2]You can only shake your head and sigh at this behavior from the three ill-equipped Succubi.Just as the one on fire hurls a fireball at you, shadow consumes your body in a blink of an eye as you teleport over to the corner shadow of the room, near and inside the fireplace.“You know, you might have wanted to figure out why all the Sutoba's and the other powerful succubi didn't try to take my spot first.” you say as tentacles wriggle out of your form and worm along the ground, hellish red eyes opening up in the space around you. “Food for thought.”(Critical roll!)The three Succubi stop in their tracks, frozen in terror as you proceed to pummel the ever living daylights out of them in order to teach them a lesson.Just as the beating finishes, Alex and Mina run into the room, both of them half naked. Your father also runs in, hands glowing in a holy light.“Brooklyn!” Mina exclaims. “We heard a commotion over here a- ...Oh.”“I guess we were late for ze party.” Alex replies.“These three idiots tried to kill me in my sleep. I guess the Laminian got past the guards as these idiots were my actual guards.” you tell the group.“Well son, you shouldn’t upset at something like this of all things.” your Father exclaims.
[2/2]“They tried to kill me!” your father points out.“Yes, and there’s going to be a lot more of them coming at you. Don’t you remember your history Brooklyn?” your father asks.“...Oh right, those who get a new station are often attacked quite a bit aren’t they?” you reply.“Very much so.” your father replies.“You should be happy Brooklyn! The very fact that they attempted this means they acknowledge you as a leader!” Mina exclaims.“And people wonder why I didn’t want to be the leader in our group.” Alex states.You, Brooklyn, should make an example out of those who defy you. Off with their heads.What? But it’s only a normal d-You, Brooklyn, WILL be an effective leader. You, Brooklyn, know that my advice is best for what a leader does.(Roll willpower to shake off the mental control. A max failure is putting all three of the Succubi to death, a high enough roll ignores the compulsion)
Rolled 60>>33903604I believe it's time to find out who's trying to do this.
Alright we're about near death, I'll announce the results at the beginning of the next thread then.
>>33904097Any idea when that will be? Also, how much DP did we get this thread? Both for killing Dio and for using the Celestians as dupes.
Rolled 33>>33904097Next thread being this week or next week?
>>33904130>>33904136Next thread will be next week.As for DP, I'll need to think on it
