Welcome ladies and gentlemen to another edition of Succubus Lord Quest!Last time on Succubus Lord quest it was all about setting up the new policies inside of Old TO while seeing what future powers could indeed be allies with us. One popular suggestion was that Old TO could become a new sort of Las Vegas where people blow their money and resources on various sorts of sin.But then a new development, we discovered that somehow there is now a brand new voice in our head that seems to be influencing Brooklyn’s very own thoughts and tastes! We last left off when Brooklyn was amidst of this discovery.We now continue from where we left off!For information on characters and old threads:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Um4gk-JN4CHFJJdQrJjfbzg6Q8FHcmfxP8sRDhaf-FI
[1/2]Given that this is a time based emergency, you decide that it’s best to get some expert head shrinks in on this matter, just in order to figure out what exactly is going on with your head.“Amanda, can you develop any more tests in order to better figure out this thing in my head?” you ask her.“A proper test would take at least a day to think up.” Amanda replies.“That’s fine, an entire day of solid work sounds fair in this case.” you reply.“Oh *goodness* no not an entire day of work! Ideas of this sort can’t be rushed, they often just come to to me when I’m doing other things.” Amanda replies.“Honestly?” you ask.“Best I can do on such short notice.” Amanda replies.“Good enough. I’m also going to get some Ayarians, see if they can help pinpoint this problem.” you comment.“Having an Ayarian poke around your head could be dangerous Brooklyn.” Amanda warns you.“...Oh god damnit, the shrines.” you reply. “This just limits me to Sebastien and Erika then.”All the more reason why you, Brooklyn, should not risk it.“I’d probably say such a thing is lessened in risk, but if need be you could ask the Ayarian Leader once she properly heals.” Amanda replies. “They gave her anti-psi drugs of some sort, and even when her migraine ends she’s going to need to flush the toxins out of her system, which is a few days even with medical support.”“How long do I have before this thing poses a serious risk to my personality and beliefs?” you ask.
[2/3]“No idea. I’d need to make a second test later on tonight then plot the differences, a third test to be absolutely sure. What I’d do is figure out how this started, as doing mental surgery or giving out drugs that affect one’s thinking are not to be handed out lightly.” Amanda warns.“I agree. In the meantime I need to get prepared to the meeting with the Leader’s on what to do next.” you reply. “...Only this time not have Dis try and ambush us out of nowhere.”“Very well Brooklyn, I’ll be here if you need me.” Amanda replies as she turns around back to her desk.As soon as you come back out of Amanda’s room, you can see Wilhelmina standing outside. “There’s been a situation.” Nalika quickly blurts out.“Of course there’s been.” you pessimistically reply.“A group of militant Miyian’s have captured a building downtown and are holding everyone inside of it hostage. They claim that if you don’t turn leadership of Old TO over to a person of their choosing in four hours, they’ll begin executing a hostage once every half hour.” Nalika quickly summarizes.“Oh for the love of...” you mutter to yourself. “How many hostages?”“About 50, a mixture of Succubi and mortals mainly. They’ve released all the Miyian Succubi in their custody however.” Nalika replies.
[3/3]A) You, Brooklyn, do not negotiate with terrorists. Dispatch a security force to make an example of them all. The lives of peasant hostages are well worth setting a swift example that no one crosses you, Brooklyn.B) Send out a squad of guards to deal with them, you need your group at full power for those damn challengers.C) Send out a squad of your ‘friends’ who specialize in stealth asskicking while staying home to prepare for the leaders and challengers. Default: Sebastien, Erika, Troy, AdaD) Same as above, but offer to lend a personal hand. Let people know that their new Ruler would stick her neck out for even ‘low class’ hostages.E) Other

>>34259342Derp.Nalika, should be Nalika.
>>34259403this, because the sooner we get looked at the better
[1/2](Sorry for that delay)“Find Sebastien and tell him to get ready to move out. Get Troy and Erika and... have Alex make something fast that helps with hangovers.” you order Nalika.“Shall I also fetch Ada as well?” Nalika asks.“No, I shall be going as well.” you reply.“Are you sure about that?” Nalika asks. “Going into battle just after a large conflict the day before?”“I need to show the people that their new leader won’t tolerate any sort of mistreatment of those under her, and what better way to show that personally.” you reply.“Very well, I’ll go fetch them now.” Nalika replies.“And Amanda’s armour is still shorted out from the other day... Damnit, I hate wearing that traditional armour, it digs into my ass far too much...” you mutter as you head back to your room.******“So you’re saying the personality deep within my head is Dio’s?” you ask Sebastien on the carriage ride over.“At a glance yes. To be absolutely sure would require a full mental scan, but the mental defenses around it are very impressive. Like Dio, the Dio shard seems to have an immense willpower.” Sebastien says. “Going along with any suggestions it makes would boost your willpower immensely, but at the same time going along with it would probably make it stronger.” Sebastien replies, a cigerette hanging out of his mouth as he checks the ammo in his revolvers.“Can you cut it out?” you ask.“Do you cast advanced spells without doing a ritual first? Without preparation would turn you into a vegetable in all likelihood.” Sebastien replies.“Wonderful.” you say with a sigh as you lean back in your chair. “Erika, Troy, are you two alright?”“Still a bit groggy, but fine otherwise.” Erika says nursing the goblet of drink Alex gave her.“I still want to know how my pants ended up on castle roof.” Troy replies.
[2/3]“A mystery that will probably never be solved.” you quickly reply before you step out of the carriage, now at your destination, the supply docks near the now closest astral portal. A large crowd seems to have gathered around the area, currently held at bay by a guard line with mortal guards. In the back a large warehouse seems to be blocked off, and a few blood splatters and scorch marks can be seen on the ground. Thankfully you don’t draw too many stares yet, dressed conservatively in casual clothing with your armour underneath.“What’s the situation?” you ask a nearby guard.“D-Duke Browning!” a nearby guard gasps.“Time is of the essence, so give us the brief details.” you tell him.“Y-Yes ma’am! About an hour ago, a gang of Miyian’s known as the Hydrogen’s took over the building, killing the guards inside of the building before killing a few more outside before they announced they had hostages. We’ve kept our distance since then, but we were unsure of how to proceed until we heard orders from the higher ups.” the guard replies.“Hm...” you say as you trail off in thought. “...Wait, Brodin?”“What? I’m here for the clean up.” Brodin replies.“You’re here because this is a booze warehouse.” Sebastien replies.“I’m sure they won’t notice a barrel or two missing during the chaos.” Brodin replies.“...Have they made any demands?” you ask the guard again.The guard just shakes his head. “Only that you step down from your position as Baron of Lord TO so that the Miyian’s could appoint someone of their choosing. Who they haven’t said. Negotiators haven’t had much luck either, as they don’t appear to be interested in talking.”
[3/3]“Do you have a map of the warehouse?” you ask the guard. Having one would help with your space magic.“Certainly, we can easily get one from the Shipper’s Office.” the guard replies.A) Distract the Miyian’s by talking to them while Sebastien and his group sneak in with a portal ripped open by you. (Roll for space magic, difficulty average)B) Go in with Sebastien’s group and take care of matters personally. (Roll for space magic, difficulty average)C) Space magic may not work, just do one of the two above without the space magic and save the aether.D) Other

“Get the map.” you order the guard as he then walks off. “I have an idea. I’m going to distract the Miyian’s in the building, while the rest of you sneak in the back with a portal I create for you all.” you tell them.“Good idea. That handles our way in to the building at least.” Troy replies.“An exit may be tricker though.” Erika comments.“How long would you need me to stall them?” you ask.“Long enough for us to handle any sort of guards overlooking the hostages and secure the room where the hostages are located. If we need any sort of support, we can give a signal to send the guards in.” Sebastien replies.“Here’s the map Duke Browning!” A guard says bringing you the map.A map let’s you focus on the spacial coordinates easily enough, opening up scrying windows inside of the warehouse to see where a good place to drop the portals would be.A) The hostage room has a lot of guards inside of it, but a few dark areas for sneaking. (Risky insertion)B) The booze hold area seems to only have a few guards, some of whom are busy sampling some of the booze. Drunken guards make easy pickings.C) Put them on the roof, and let the group decide where to begin their infiltration.D) Other

>>34260792And make sure the keg is paid for with palace-funds.
I'll say when you can make rolls againIn the mean time, gonna take a few minutes to fetch some food.
>>34260729I don't think our space control is powerful enough for sustained portals yet, Anon. Still, it'd be a great way to get people out if we can.
Alright back now, typing.
“There’s a place in the middle of the warehouse. Miyian guards are there, but they’re loaded drunk.” you comment.“Easy pickings.” Troy says running his fingers along the edge of his dagger, which looks to be more of a machete or shortsword.“Just get ready. I can only keep the portal open for a few seconds at most.” you reply as you walk over around a nearby corner, drawing a chalk circle on the wall as you begin the ritual for portals. It’s a fairly lengthy ritual at nearly 15 minutes in length, but you eventually manage to get your portal open to the location despite encountering minor ward by the Miyian forces.Without a word, the stealth group slips through the portal just as it closes behind them, your last image of them standing up on top of a column of barrels.“Time for my action...” you say rolling your shoulders before heading off towards the warehouse.“WHERE THE HELL IS THE RESPONSE FROM THAT SO CALLED DUKE OF YOURS! I KNOW YOU’VE HAD ENOUGH TIME FOR EVEN A CRIPPLED RUNNER TO DELIVER A MESSAGE TO HER!” A Miyian shouts up from the second story building.“Yes, I did get you message, otherwise I wouldn’t be here otherwise.” you reply.“Oh look who showed up! The Okarian bitch herself!” the Miyian calls out from the second story. You can hear her, but you can’t see her. Which makes any sort of aether sight problematic. “Don’t try anything funny either! I’ve got a hostage right here, and one slip of my wrist and his head will be coming clean off you hear me!?”“P-Please stop this!” a young man can be heard begging.“Shut up!” the Miyian replies, a hand in the window making a quick movement to something below the window frame, most likely hitting him for speaking.
>>34261529"So, what's the point of this nonsense?"
Oh yes, here rolls would be good. Remember, think about what you say. Even if you get a hundred but all you say is "pls let everyone go", then I'll make it autofail.Plus the rolls are required not to piss the Miyian off.
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>34261529"Can I ask why you resorted to violence and terrorism instead of challenging me legitimately like everyone else who wants my spot? I'm more than happy to talk about this but your actions are not helping your cause very much."
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>34261529"So, who do you want to replace me? And how in the world do you intend to ensure she isn't instantly usurped by Luna?"
Rolled 65 (1d100)>>34261677>>34261529This
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>34261529"I never forgot the key role the Miyians had in Dio's fall. Many more would have died without their aid."
>>34261677>>34261704These are goodand if she throws the whole " But you will mistreat us deal" then throw in some reasoning with this >>34262034
>>34262073That's what I was trying for with the comment. Someone recommended it and it wasn't included in the speech, so now is a perfect time to include it.
"Can I ask why you resorted to violence and terrorism instead of challenging me legitimately like everyone else who wants my spot?” you ask. “I'm more than happy to talk about this but your actions are not helping your cause very much."“Oh so says the caste born with a silver spoon in their mouths! Do you know the sorts of troubles we Miyian’s face!? Some of best and talented people forced to send of or sell their own daughters as whores in order to make ends meet, meanwhile the Okarian’s live under the blessing of the Greed Demon’s as their own personal pets and whores!? No! No we will not stand to have a Succubus caste who are under the influence of the Pride Demon forces!” The Miyian adamantly declares. “You who have no idea what hardship is has no right to claim the title of Baron of Old TO!”"Who do you want to replace me? And how in the world do you intend to ensure she isn't instantly usurped by Luna?" you ask.“I get to decide that, not you! Once you surrender your ownership of Old TO we’ll then give it to someone who truly deserves the spot!” the Miyian shouts back. “As for Luna, we have our ways for dealing with that bitch!”
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>34262123"You truly think that you are the only ones to have suffered? And do you really think that you can defeat the pride demons by first rejecting the assistance and validity of the Okerians?"
Rolled 42 (1d100)>>34262123"I know rather well what sorts of troubles Miyian's face, a very good friend of mine is a Miyian, and do you know how she tried to change things, to make things better for her caste and all succubi? She didn't take hostages, she fought alongside me against Dio and his Pride Demon minions, she was instrumental in bringing about the end of the Pride Demon's tyranny in Old TO, and now she is helping rebuild, helping improve things for her fellow Miyian succubi, helping to make this city a better place instead of lowering herself to the level of the Pride Demons.I would gladly invite you and any other Miyians who would wish to join in discussing and solving the issues you and our fellow succubi face, but I'm not going to swap Dio for someone just as bad as him.I want to help you and your fellow Miyian's, It pains me to see my succubi kin suffer such hardships and I sincerely do want to change things for the betterment of us all and not further ruin things by infighting.If you truly do want to help the Miyian caste and remove the hardships it faces, then don't lower yourself to the level of Dio and the Pride Demons, but instead, talk to me.All you are doing by performing this act of terrorism is make people think you deserve the hardships you endure, and make it that much harder to help change things for the better."

Rolled 66 (1d100)>>34262763>>34262123This, is non confrontational enough to hopefully not piss her off
"I know rather well what sorts of troubles Miyian's face, a very good friend of mine is a Miyian, and do you know how she tried to change things, to make things better for her caste and all Succubi?

If you truly do want to help the Miyian caste and remove the hardships it faces, then don't lower yourself to the level of Dio and the Pride Demons, but instead, talk to me.”“Lower ourselves!? HAHAHAHA!” The Miyian seems to burst out into a fit of laughter for a few seconds. “That is rich coming from a Succubus who whore themselves out to the Greed Demon’s in order to ensure their precious library remains intact! We Miyian’s kept our university operating through blood, sweat, and tears! Don’t dare try and take the moral high ground here when your entire clan is morally bankrupt Okarian!”
How are we deciding which action is being taken? I'm confused
>>34262822This was me.
>>34262836I basically pick the answer that seems to best in the situation or the one that got the most votes.
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>34262822"Do you honestly think I am happy with the Greed Demon's and my clan's situation? I despise what they did, and while I was born long after their 'deals' were made, and I'm relatively new to this city, I am going to do my damnedest to remove their shackles from my clan, but I'm not going to doom peace for the rest of the succubi in this city by doing so. I admire how the Miyian's managed to retain control and operation of your university, but do you think they managed that by acts of terrorism?You stand here, judging me by no actions of my own, in turn, should I be judging the Miyian's that I stood and fought alongside against Dio with, should I judge them to be terrorists and rogue succubi who would rather kill innocents than fight for a righteous and just peace themselves?I stood proudly shoulder to shoulder with those Miyian's that fought against Dio and his minions out on the ice, I stood next to them as equals, fighting together, for all of us, and here you are, undermining what your own clanmates have achieved and making things worse for yourself and your own clan.You want change and justice for your clan, I understand that, and I want it for your clan too, but this? All this does is colour your hands with the blood of innocents and make you as bad as the Pride Demons and the Greed Demons while ruining all the progress your kin have made.This is not the way to help your Miyian kin."
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>34263201 hereWell thats it, I'm out of material and ideas and this bitch is fucking annoying.Is there a way we can check with Seb and Erika how their progress is going because I really want either of them to shank this cunt right now.

>>34263201Good roll for a good post, well doneWish I was half so artful
>>34263201Awesome post, 10/10.Possibly add the fact that the only way to keep the library even in Okarian hands was to become slaves to the Greed demons, as without it, the Greed Demons would have stripped it of anything they could haul away and then burn it to the ground.That the Miyians were able to keep their University open to succubi at all, especially with the Pride demons cracking down on old-world tech, is a testiment

[2/2]“You Okarian bitch! Don’t you dare fucking tell me how I can help my own kin! An outsider never knows of the difficulties that we face each and every day! You Okarian’s may have had your magic restricted, but not outright illegal during the reign of the Pride Demons!” The Miyian replies to you, her voice now filled with anger. “You even admitted that you were an outsider to this city! How could you even begin to know the pain and anger that ANY of the Succubi have felt for generations inside of this city!? What makes you think that you can just waltz in here and pretend that you’re better than the one’s who have lived in this city for decades! Ones who truly know the pain and suffering that our kind has experienced!? The only thing you’ve Okarian’s have ever done is stay sheltered in your protected part of Old TO while the rest of us suffer! During the fight to first repel the Pride Demons, it was the Miyian’s who fought their guerilla wars the longest! During the Science Lord Wars, it was us Miyian’s who took the brunt of the damage and rescuing! While for Dio, you only made a move because you KNEW you’d be able to seize control of the city!”
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>34263827"No, I made a move because I sensed a chance to finally free us of pride demon rule. I saw a chance, and I pulled it off.

[2/2]“You stupid whore! You talk to us about ruining all you ever worked for!? Back in the Old World we were akin to gurus, and now we’re nothing more than street rats! Fuck you! These hostages are as good as d- What the!?”The sounds of gunshots can be heard throughout the building as small bulletholes open up in the wall nearby. The sounds of energy rays being fired can be heard up above the second floor, followed by multicoloured lights. The crowd down below starts screaming, running away from the scene as fast as possible.(What do?)

“Secure the perimeter! Make sure no one tries to escape!” you order the guards as you rush inside of the building.As soon as you enter the building, you’re shot with a stray lightning blast from above. Your own ability in light magic allows you to deflect the beam with your light barrier easily enough.Looking up into the rafters, you can see Sebastien currently having a shootout with some Miyian’s up on top, unable to use his big gun. Troy hops down from the rafters and slices the neck on one of the Miyian’s trying to sneak around and stab Sebastien, while the sounds of Erika’s psi-sword can be heard in the room behind Sebastien. “She uses light magic, use the physical weapons!” the Miyian leader up on the top floor says.As you look down, you can see some Miyian’s rushing at you from across the room at speeds not possible for normal human running. You quickly adjust the local gravity, forcing at least two Miyian’s to continue their path now uncontrolled into the wall, the impact knocking them out cold. Two more however appear to have stopped just in time for the gravity nullification to come up, two of them jumping off the nearby pillars in the room and now rushing directly towards you.
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>34265331switch gravity back on for them, but make it several times normal and keep them there while we summon some soligrams to distract the Miyians
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>34265331Bright flash of light and a dozen or so soligram clones, designed to look exactly like us. Should be extremely difficult to pick us out, especially if we use space magic to disguise our attacks.
Rolled 71 (1d100)>>34265331>>34265391this plan. then go for the boss bitch
Rolled 22 (1d100)>>34265331Avoid them as much as possible, focus on moving through the room & defense. Get to the hostages asap. Use gravity manipulation and shadow teleport as necessary.
Rolled 67 (1d100)>>34265391do this, then>>34265422do this, then>>34265447do this
>>34265467Please stop asking this. What you're doing is asking for three actions in a turn when you only have one, and I said in last thread I don't like typing out huge parts as I feel that even after a single action, the battlefield can change quite a bit.I don't mind voting for single parts, but going "A, then B, then C" in battle often makes me discard such things.I don't mean to be negative about such things, but just a polite suggestion
You try to reverse the gravity on the Miyian’s in order to catch them off guard, but the only thing that happens is them landing on their feet and rushing towards you. This catches you completely off guard for a moment, one of the blades a Miyian takes out crackling with electricity while an axe with green fires blazes in front of you. Deciding that the axe is going to hurt a lot less, you dodge the axe while leaning into the electrified sword to help pull the blow.The sword hits the side of your traditional armour through your clothing, but even then you can feel the shock of the sword rip through your body. You grit your teeth as you swing your own axe back at her, narrowly missing both of the Miyian’s and causing them to hop back.Son of a bitch, these ones not only have devices that boost their movement, but also let’s them ignore changes in gravity up to a certain extent.A) Focus all of your power into the gravity to crush them flatter than a pancakeB) Use Annihilator shots, since their element is technically neutral.C) Other
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>34265765>B) Use Annihilator shots, since their element is technically neutral.
>>34265331>“Secure the perimeter! Make sure no one tries to escape!”guard mumbles to himself: "Wow, what an idiot, we were already doing that before she arrived. Better not say anything since she's the Duke though. Also how does that make sense, shouldn't she be the Duchess?" *mumble grumble*
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>34265765>B) Use Annihilator shots, since their element is technically neutral.
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>34265765B) Use Annihilator shots, since their element is technically neutral.I'll also vote for this (although really late).
>>34266004Let's... use the other roll
>>34266035indeed, the 76 and 72 are good
>>34266035Highest roll is automatically used. 95-99 is a crit, 1-5 is a crit fail, 100 is even better.
>>34266332And how many rolls are used?
>>34266332Oh and crits trump regular rolls. So 100 > 95-99 > 1-5 > 6-94.
>>34266332>1-5 is a crit failthank fuck I only rolled a 6
>pomtrned Hendersoncaptcha...I don't think that being Mr. Henderson will help here.>>34266414It's the reason why the previous post was so difficult.>>34266404Anon, I know it's late, but you really should read by post more carefully...
I love how the argument consisted of "Miyians have to whore themselves out to survive! Meanwhile, you Okarians merely whore yourselves out to survive."
>>34266445Fanatics are assholes.
>>34266439You said nothing about the number. So basically we could sit here and roll a few hundred times and it would all count?
>>34266404IIRC only the first 3 though its been a very long time since the dice rules were implemented
>>34266479I think it's first two rolls, with more as we learn levels of Fate control (first 3 at Average, first 4 at Great!).
>>34266501Only the first two actually.
>>34266510>(first 3 at Average, first 4 at Great!).then we should level that up when we next spend xp
>>34266548We don't have fate control.
Seeing that trick is down, you switch to your old favorite of the annihilator shot. You charge up a shot quickly before throwing it at the axe Miyian. She curves to avoid the attack, but your attack is faster as it hits her dead on, exploding in a force that sends heavy alcohol laden drinks. Her flaming axe then catches herself on fire, the Miyian screaming in pain as green flames engulf her.The other Miyian looks on in terror, stepping away from you as she looks at her flaming companion in utmost horror.“Fuck this! Nobody move!” the Miyian leader says above you. “We’re getting the hell out of here, and you’re going to let us, otherwise this man dies!”Making a small scrying window, you view up to the second floor so you can see the Miyian. You can see that she currently has the young working man held up by knifepoint at the neck. Tears fall down his face as she currently stares down Sebastien from across the hall.You need to be careful here, one wrong move could trigger the Miyian and it could be over in a split second...A) Help the Miyian on fire and put out the fire, or else the entire place goes up in flames.B) The Miyian is above you, use a laser shot through the floor and finish her off.C) Try to find some way to get her non-lethally. She could know something.D) Other
>>34266548i dont knowits a sort of interesting system it would make us succeed more but give more chances for both positive and negative criticals as well
>>34266580That's probably why he said we should level it up. Durr.We wouldn't need to get it if we already had it.
>>34266584>sends heavy alcohol laden drinksOh god, where did they go? We used space control for those 4D blasts, right, the alcohol could end up ANYWHERE
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>34266584>A) Help the Miyian on fire and put out the fire, or else the entire place goes up in flames.D) We have a space control LOS. Tie her up with dark tenticals.
>>34266580then we should fix that>>34266584A) Help the Miyian on fire and put out the fire, or else the entire place goes up in flames.goddamnit, we need to to this fast so we can laser the stupid bitch upstairscall for the flaming Miyian's friend to help put her outFlaming Miyian sounds like a great drink name
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>34266584>B)
>>34266584A) Help the Miyian on fire and put out the fire, or else the entire place goes up in flames.C) Try to find some way to get her non-lethally. She could know something.Gravity could work on the Leader, but we don't know for sure.
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>34266656woops, forgot to roll
>>34266656>then we should fix thatTBH, its very low on my list of things to get.
>>34266723why? it would help with everything
>>34266748I think its too expensive to be worth it, and I'm opposed on principle to grabbing any control that sounds fun.
>>34266810It actually sounds the least fun of anything we can get. Getting it would be just so we can be more effective.If we wanted to go for fun we could, I don't know, get a rainbow of water, fire, air and earth control.
>>34266810>and I'm opposed on principle to grabbing any control that sounds fun....What.Though it kind of sucks that there isn't another way to increase the dice pool outside of getting fate control to average and higher
>>34266810It would also buff our Annihilator shots. Lets just ask Sandact after the thread is over as to how much of a power booster it'll be.>>34266859Time control has haste and a few other fun things we can do.
>>34266890Haste sounds a lot more fun than the stuff in Fate control, therefore >>34266810 must be against it.
You decide to reach out to save the Miyian on fire, using your darkness powers to wrap up and around her in order to smother the fire that is around her. “That’s the last time you lay your hand on our kind Okarian!” the lead Miyian says as she slits the throat of the man above.Sebastien reacts instantly, firing a shot that hits the Miyian square in the chest. Troy leaps from the ceiling as well, cutting off the Miyian’s knife hand from above.“Fuck!” you comment as you sprout wings and fly above. As you look up, you can see the hostage dead on the floor with the Miyian screaming in pain. Troy uses the pommel of his weapon to hit her on the back of the head, knocking her out.“Damnit! You stupid bitch!” you say giving a kick to the Miyian in the gut while down.“Brooklyn there wasn’t anything we could do. I didn’t have a clear shot and she would’ve killed the hostage before Troy hit the ground.” Sebastien comments.“The rest of the hostages are safe through. Shaken, but safe. Erika is leading them out now.” Troy replies as he flicks the blood off his knife. “Dutchess Browning!” The guards call down from below, now pouring into the building. “What shall we do with the Miyian’s who are still alive?”"I'll also need to release a statement on this..." you mutter.
>>34266954I assume we have a dungeon or cells to hold them in? put them in there.we will make them work to repay the damage they have done and to compensate the families of those they killed
>>34266954>“What shall we do with the Miyian’s who are still alive?”Dungeon and interrogation.And don't randomly let them out after the interrogation either.>"I'll also need to release a statement on this..." you mutter.Nah, it's fine.
>>34266903Might also open up the possibility of (HIGHLY LIMITED) time travel. As in, no changing major stuff, but possibly tweaking stuff 'no one can be sure of'.>>34266954Imprison them. The Leader and the others murdered people. Any belongings they have need to be sold to pay recompense to those that lost their lives here. They also need to be put on trial at some point.
>>34266954>>34267016Oh, and I almost forgot. Silence the leader with darkness tentacles before she says anything stupid and gets herself killed.
>>34267016well Luna managed to make 5 hours stretch into like 8 when we banged her
>>34267016I hate time travel.
>>34266954>>34267007We do need to give a statement to the city after this.
>>34267036>Silence the leaderyep, we need to do that
>>34267061Nah, it's fine.
>>34267061yeah, something that sends a message that we won't tolerate this shit, and that we are working to help all the clans recover from the years of oppression that Dio forced on them
>>34266954First, bind & gag the leader with darkness tentacles. "Get them to the dungeons. Any items on their person will be sold to compensate the families and loved ones of those they killed."
“Heal them then send the lot of them to the dungeon! I want every single scrap of information ringed out of these bitches!” you exclaim.“Yes Dutchess!” the guard exclaims as they begin to round up the Miyians.You can only look down at the dead worker below and simply sigh.“Brooklyn, you did your best. It was a situation where there was a loss any way.” Erika says reassuring you.“Still feels like shit in a sense...” you say as you look down at the dead man. “Find his family, I’ll write the letter personally. The brain should still be alive for a few moments more.”“Now who’s the morbid one.” Troy pessimistically replies as he gags the leader.As you head back outside, many people erupt into cheers upon seeing their own Dutchess personally talking an interest in the safety of normal citizens. Many wish to shake your hand or give it a kiss, while a few hugs come from the females. Needless to say it’s quite the bit of aether that you enjoy.Upon returning to the castle, you find out that about seven out of the 16 Miyian’s came back alive, many of them being treated inside of the dungeon. Many of them being treated by Leona, a person whom you can trust. Knowing your luck a guard may let a Miyian out to soften you up.“Lady Brooklyn.” Nalika replies as she enters your study in your private bedroom.“What is it Nalika?” you reply, not looking up from the blank sheet of paper that is supposed to go to the man’s family.“One of the Miyian’s you captured wishes to speak with you.” Nalika replies. “She said that she’s willing to talk so long as willing to let her go.Poppycock, those who oppose you, Brooklyn, must rot in the dungeon forever.
>>34267466"I'm only willing to let her go depending on what she says and how she pays for her crimes, but lets see her anyway."Talk first and see what the bitch wants before doing any deals
>>34267466"Did they kill anyone?" Prepare to go meet here.
Rolled 97 (1d100)>>34267466>>34267530Rolling to resist Dio's faggotry.
"I'm only willing to let her go depending on what she says and how she pays for her crimes, but lets see her anyway." you reply getting up from the letter. You were getting nowhere with it anyways.You head down to the dungeon, seeing the two Miyian’s who attacked you earlier. One of them has major burns head to toe, lying on a clean cot brought down from above. Her green haired partner sits next to her on the bed.“I thought I told you to seperate the prisoners.” you tell Nalika.“The medics were concerned of how the unconscious mind might develop if a Gemelli partner is away from one who’s partner is in a coma.” Nalika replies.“What!? *You’re* a Gemelli?” you ask the green headed on. The green haired Succubi nods. “My mother was a Miyian, so she raised me as such along with my partner.”“What do you want then?” you ask.“I... want to thank you for saving the life of my partner. The idea that my link with her would’ve been cut and me turning into a wreck is enough to give any Gemelli a waking nightmare. I want to thank you by telling you anything you want to know, and that my partner and I have accepted your rule as the Dutchess of Old TO. You truly a person who cares about the plight of us Succubi.” The green haired Gemelli replies.
>>34268199Aether sight this shit. Sounds like we finally caught a break here, even if that poor kid died because of that Miyian bitch.
>>34268199seconding >>34268253if she is being sincere and truthful then I'm thinking we can reduce their sentence to merely working for usbut lets see what she has to say and her thoughts on things first
>>34268340Actually, if what she is telling is the truth, we should consider just letting her go w/ the option of offering her either a job, or the chance to give us more info if/when she receives it if the exchange would save lives.
>>34268488if she is reasonable and sincere, the only reason I don't want to release her soon is because of the message it would sendbut if she's legit, I'm all for offering her and her partner a job, if she feels like it and is likeminded
>>34268623Which is why she gets off with some probationary work for the city. She tells us if any nut-jobs plan anything stupid and if there is anything else going on in the Miyian community & she gets her freedom.
You turn on aura sight, seeing her aura as a bright Vermillion (joy) colour, showing that she’s indeed sincere about this.“Hm... You’re actually telling the truth.” you mutter. “How much do you actually know?”“My partner and I are naturally nosy. We let the Miyian’s remain in the dark about exactly how good our senses were. We’re not as privy to as much information as our gang leader, but we do know a fair bit from overhearing conversations.” the green haired Gemelli replies.(I’m going to be going to bed now. What questions do you want to ask her? i will begin this when I wake up tomorrow)
>>34268769ask her about her gang and why they ended up doing this plot, did someone hire them for ittell her to tell us everything she knows about miyians who are willing to do the sorts of things as their group (fighting against okarians at the expense of all succubi)
>>34268769thanks for the thread Sand, we'll try to keep it alive, I'll bump it with any questions I have for the Gemellifirst ones are about the Miyian's current situation, the gossip and the juicy details surrounding why they went hostage taking
>>34268769Ask her if she knows of the powered-armour the Miyians used who attacked with the Draugr. Also find out if Beck might be planning something.
"Do you know who put them up to this if anyone or what they were trying to accomplish besides trying to get themselves and a bunch of innocent people killed." hopefully we can get rid of dio's mind shard before we start doing stuff like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sLNOhA7C2Q
Last bump post before I head to bed.
>>34268769We need to know what else they have planned in case this plan didn't work, key figures and hideouts.
[1/2](Doing this special update now since I can’t sleep, and may as well bump with content. Will try to go to sleep after)"Do you know who put you and your gang up to this, if there was anyone. What they were you trying to accomplish besides trying to get yourselves and a bunch of innocent people killed." you ask.“Officially, we did this of our own free will and volition.” The Gemelli replies. “Unofficially?” you ask.“I thought a few things were off about the operation. For one the Miyian’s in our group seemed not only to be bumped up the workshop waiting list by almost a few pages, but they also seemed to get more resources than usual from the university. Not only that, our boss seemed to know quite a bit about you.” The Gemelli replies.“How much?” you ask.“Enough to know your personality profile said you had a soft spot for mortals and that taking people hostage was enough of a threat that it might get you to reconsider or show up. Secondly, we knew your combat abilities rather well, and many of us were specifically decked out to deal with Light and Dark controls.” The Gemelli replies.“So where you hired?” you ask.“I’m not exactly sure, but it seems like we were hired by someone within the University, at least that’s what my guess would be. I’m fairly certain my boss was the only one who knew for certain, as we didn’t hear anything from even those directly under her, and believe me they’re into some vile things.”“Like what?” Nalika asks.“They... Pick.” The Gemelli says, fidgeting slightly.“Pick what? Locks? Pockets?” Nalika asks.
[2/2]“No! They’re feet! They put them right up on the table even during dinner and just pick at them! It’s disgusting!” The Gemelli exclaims.“Still, why exactly what exactly was your boss supposed to do supporting that hateful ideology?” you ask.“The boss had her husband and child killed by Okarians in a turf war about 50 years ago, but even putting aside personal grudges she does have a point. To many Miyian’s it’s completely unfair that the Okarian’s live in their ivory tower which is largely unchanged since the old world, and not only that but the Okarian’s have occupied the better off parts of the city. Many of us were fighting against Okarian expansion attempts into our own territory for many years, and many Miyian’s are very protective of the land they have left.” The Gemelli clarifies. “Most of thought that as soon as an Okarian became Dutchess, all Miyian territory had their days numbered.”“Didn’t the Pride Demon’s legally give you control of some land?” Nalika asks.“They did, but they never enforced it. Unless the clan war came to their doorstep, they often avoided anything resulting from it. In fact I think they didn’t care a single bit that Miyian territory was lost, as the Pride Demon’s didn’t care about Miyian’s in general. The only reason we have the University is for them to prevent young Miyian’s from blowing themselves up.”
>>34273584"Well, I'm no pride demon and Miyian territory is quite secure. Who are the most influential moderate Miyuns? I think I need to arrange some meetings."Lets get an agenda set up so we can get on top of things. First, get that list from the head of the witches of sane Miyans and have the church of Pamille arrange a meeting. 2nd find someplace secure and Call up Miyu. We need to report to the Queens and get the location of the cache's the Science lords missed. 3rd, get that information to luna and have her go dungeon diving. Also, when's the meeting with the heads of the clans again?
>>34273740Not with Beck. She isn't going to even resemble being reasonable. A better approach would be to convene all of the clan leaders and bring these matters in front of everyone. Then the Miyans could be offered deals that would reassure them that we mean them no harm.
>>34273797We've already schedualed a meeting with all of the leaders. We've also tried to find some moderate Miyuns to replace her if necessary.
Still can't sleep.Last bump I make before I wake up and continue or say fuck it and go on
Well, while we are a long way from removing all clan borders, we can offer the Myians space to build new workshops and connection to a larger, more open trade network...Magic, while good for the user, doesn't often help the people... Myian Tech, not super science, CAN help the people, thusly is a worthwhile investment...On a meta note, could Amanda's personality test highlight if a succubi may be broken and/or a pride demon spy?
>>34273584So, meetings and such we need to arrange:Vampires (do they need blood? They should run a hospital)Moderate Miyun meetingLeadersOkerians (I wonder if we can arrange some sort of magic tech support contract with the Wrath demon empire. If the witches can make a device that will allow rich wrath demons to dial 1-800-TECHSUPPORT whenever they find something they can't smash.)Our Celestian Spy, since the Knights of Nii are undoubtedly plotting our demise as we speak
>>34276137Space control to send or receive goods, Fate control as a use of Economics knowledge, various controls for their ability to produce effects for crafting and building (earth control to build a house or city, fire to produce a key temperature, and so on), solidigrams to carry particular items or manipulate things, lasers to finely cut items so that little-to-no material is wasted, Darkness control to reduce gravity in a set area (a cart or a set of them) so that many heavy items can be transported with little effort.All of these things just require a user to cast the effect. Crafted items could do something similar, depending on the aether cost.None of these require Miyians. I think you really need to consider that the Witches are just crafters with a different power set.
>>34277032thing is with if we go full "magic fuels eco" senario, we will start to have problems with food sources as succubi run dry and need to fill up, in that case we need the tourism up to support the need for aether, or cut back how widely it's used
>>34277496Magic also scales poorly. Science is better because the economy isn't reliable on a powerful few, who get paid to match. Tech encourages a middle class
>>34277496>>34277562Well, our ultimate solution to that is careful management of the population in Old TO, the raising of humans up to benefit their talents (while employing them by using those talents to generate aether for succubi, giving humans money, recognition, and value within succubi culture).As for Science > Magic, remember that Magic IS a science, and that the Witches FUSE magic and technology.Finally, the idea of a people in a 'middle class' is good, but it automatically assumes that there will be those below holding up those above. There may be winners and losers in society, but the poor are an economic drag, thus helping them achieve their own worth is in our economic benefit.This is all up to Sandact, but I think at least part of what I'm saying meets his vision for the story.
Back now, beginning story updates
[1/2]"I'm no pride demon, so Miyian territory is quite secure. Who are the most influential moderate Miyians? I think I need to arrange some meetings." you ask.“Including the one’s who hate Okarian’s or no?” the Gemelli asks.“May as well hear both.” you reply.“Miyian power structure is a bit different than other demons. Often we high regards to those who are masters in their respective fields. Usually such people are also incredibly strong as well given that they could all make doomsday machines of some sort. The first is Sister Lacosta and her speciality is the axiom of Apokalypsi. She’s a gentle soul who follows the teachings from the teach of Pamille loyally, but is also loyal to the Miyian’s as well. If you’re looking for a woman whose loyalities do not lie with Beck, then I’d most likely start with her. Just be warned, she tends to pull information from nowhere and it often disturbs people who first see her.”“Good good, keep this coming.” you say encouraging her.“Beck, legally, has the same rank as Lacosta, but her speciality is that of Katastrofi.” the Gemelli states.“...Destruction if I remember the Miyian practice areas well enough.” you reply.“Correct, though I’ve never actually seen her build something that could take down a city, I heard she once made a superweapon during the Science Lord wars. The Pride Demons took it away after the war, but they must’ve been thankful as they didn’t even punish her for building such a device.” the Gemelli replies. “Shoujing Ming is a Miyian from the Cli lands, and her speciality is that of Automata, and she’s almost always surrounded by a few of her creations. Her loyalties lie heavily with Beck, so I’d probably stay away from her.”“Great, someone who can mass produce powerful golems.” you reply.
[2/3]“I’m not exactly sure they’re listening to her by force. Shoushen Jing often orders her creations around by force, giving them free will but forbidding them from acting against her. I think if you freed her creations they’d be happy to help in return.” The Gemelli states. “The Epikrato expert known as Lady Hemmingsway is currently in jail, under orders by Beck for her attempt to try and take over the University... and all of Old TO. She’s been diagnosed with MADS so she’d be a wildcard at best. Um... Lady Barbara is the one who is an expert with Exelixi, the axiom of healing and restoration. All I know is that she owes Beck massive loyalty since she literally is a rags to riches story and Beck was the person who helped her. She’s in charge of the medical department in the university as well.”“Anyone else?” you ask.“The current Metaptropi expert, the axiom of change and transformation, is currently in the process of being filled. The last Metaptropi died in a tragic accident that irreversibly turned her and her entire lab into gouda cheese.” the Gemelli replies. “Fairly recent, but it’s new enough that many people aiming for that spot are still preparing for their conflict against other competitors. The Prostasia expert known as Mi-Trak Scrillion is a Miyian from the Sloth demon territory, one that Beck freed from their caste system of slavery and whom loyalties lie with Beck. This one is the hardest to gather information about, because any sort of eavesdropping is almost impossible with those Prostasia inventions she has at her disposal.”“And the last?” you ask, thinking there’s one more.
[3/3]“Solace in Numbers is the last Miyian expert in Skafoi, the axiom of travel. We have no idea where she’s currently at, as her and Beck are rumored to constantly have disputes with one another. I think the rumors are that Beck gave Solace’s competitors extra resources to try and replace her and Solace caught her in the act. Because of this, Solace generally spends her time away from the university, which she has the perfect cover story she’s also the dean of the archaeology department at the University.” the Gemelli explains. "That's all of the influential Miyians I can think of off the top of my head."
>>34279724Describe to her the design materials that the Miyians helping the Draugr used. Offer to have Amanda come down here to give a more accurate description. See if the design matches a particular school, a teacher they know of, and so on.
>>34280406Also, if any particular group of Miyians disappeared during the time of the battle for Old T.O., and haven't reappeared.
We should ask them their names. It's probably courteous.
“Can you notice Miyian inventions on sight?” you ask.“It... doesn’t work that way. Asking to see a Miyian invention is akin to seeing a sword made by a swordsmith. There are many different styles.” the gemelli replies.You make a small holographic image appear from your hands, the same things the Draugr summoned during your battle with Dio. “These things in particular, I want to know if they were using Super Science equipment for certain.”The Gemelli leans in closer to the hologram as she studies it closely. “Hm... I can’t tell. The armour certainly seems futuristic and... Argh I’m sorry. My thinking is a bit fuzzy since my partner is sleeping right now.”“Do your best, that’s all I ask.” you reply. “I think I’ve seen similar designs from the Sloth Demons, though that’s just a shot in the dark. Is there anything else you could tell me?” the Gemelli asks.“They appeared from a pool of darkness and vaporized into darkness upon death.” Nalika replies. “Their voices were also monotone, like Okarian’s, but they didn’t seem like Succubi.” you reply.“In all likelihood these things are made using the Automata axiom, only with really good weapons and armour. It would explain them being vaporized upon death, but using darkness to enter battle seems to be something new. It certainly sounds like technology however, but none I’ve ever heard of.” The gemelli replies.
>>34280964No further questions. Lets get the church to arrange a meeting with Lacosta. Tell her its church business, then when she shows up we can have Miyu talk to her
“Nalika, send a message to Lacosta. Tell her it involves the Church of Pamille in Old TO.” you order Nalika. “Right away Dutchess Brooklyn.” Nalika replies. “I’ll sketch her in before you meeting with the current leaders tomorrow.”“Anything on my schedule today?” you ask.“...Just handling Lady Excel and her new accommodations.” Nalika replies....Oh right, there's checking up on your 'pet' too.(Do you want to do anything else? Talk to some NPC’s perhaps? It’s still fairly early in the day at around 3 in the afternoon, so if you want to do something you can. Otherwise I’d probably skip time until the next day.)
>>34281807I think we should visit with Excel today and make sure she's getting settled in. Maybe talk more about becoming a succubus?After that I think we can skip until tomorrow.
>>34280964Lets let them go. Possibly let them know that if they hear of anything else that might be seriously dangerous, they should tell someone at the church. Then we give that person a message box for us linked to one of our pockets or something.
>>34281807Lets see. We need to deal with the challengers, ask Sebastien to start preparing with Erika to get Dio Jr. off our shoulder, arrange the next succubi meeting, and from there...eh.
>>34281929this really, we should sort something out with those twins, community service, smaller jail time?just throwing ideas out.
>>34281807What about Dp?
>>34281991I'd say let them go free with community service of some sort. If they killed someone, make sure they have a way to make amends.We didn't technically promise anything, but they've been really cool. We should at least point out they didn't force us to agree before they talked, and others wouldn't be as nice.
>>34281807"Technically, you didn't remember to get me to agree to give you anything," and interrupt with, 'I'm not finished yet!' if they complain, "but you have helped me with a possible way to heal the rift between Miyians and Okarians, along with several other useful bits of information. So I will let you go as long as you do some sort of community service for anything you and your partner damaged and anyone either of you injured. Beyond that, I would recommend not telling anyone about what I asked for, as I hope you can see you may have been set up here to gauge my abilities. Finally, if you can convince the leader of your group that your partner isn't dead, that may be helpful.And just a helpful reminder, remember when you are making deals to make sure who agrees to what, as not everyone is as generous as I can be."
“Due to your cooperation, I have decided on a lighter sentence for you. I’ll need time to think on it, but until then I’ll see that your food in the dungeon is better than what they usually serve.” you tell the Gemelli.“Thank you so much!” The Gemelli says with a bow.As you leave the dungeon, new things come to mind. “Wait a second, what about those challengers?”“You may fight a few today if you want, although after the hostage situation today some of the people were removed from the list.” Nalika states. “Your only official knight is Mina, which means that she can also fight some challengers on your behalf. I too could handle some, but I’d prefer if I didn’t.”Hm... Dealing with Excel is important, but you also have a lot of other things to handle as well...A) Get Mina and go handle some challengersB) Check up on your pet, Amelia, to see how she’s doing.C) See Excel, doing battle before meeting family usually doesn’t bode well.D) Other
>>34282328>C) See Excel, doing battle before meeting family usually doesn’t bode well.
>>34282328C) See Excel, doing battle before meeting family usually doesn’t bode well.
>>34282328>See Excel, doing battle before meeting family usually doesn’t bode well.
You decide to go over to see how Excel is doing, hopefully her adjusting well with moving in and all. You honestly count your luck that the Draugr didn’t go after her first, as he would’ve known where Excel’s lives with him having all your memories since your ‘death’.The area where Excel is being moved into is one of the towers of the castle proper, one smack in the middle of the castle and closest to Lord Di- *your* new quarters (when they finish cleaning that place out). You walk by some workers who are taking a large painting of the previous room’s occupant out, before walking into the room proper. Your Father is helping Excel adjust to the new room. Excel currently is jumping on top of the mattress in the room like a little kid.“Brooklyn!” Excel says as she jumps off the bed and runs towards you.“Excel!” you say running over to her with arms extended.Just before Excel is about to hug you, she grabs your collar and pulls it open, making buttons fly to show your traditional armour underneath.“Why in our mother’s name were you wearing THAT when delivering your speech!? Do you have any idea how embarrassed I was when my friends at work asked that my BROTHER was wearing something you’d see at the Red Light District!?” Excel exclaims.“I was so worried about you too!” you say hugging her tightly. Excel immediately finding some flaw in someone upon meeting them is just her character.“No! Stop hugging me you pervert!” Excel says trying to push you away.“...This is like deja vu with my mother.” Nalika comments.
>>34283080Whatever we say use darkness tentacles to help with the hugging.I'm not good at the talking and i don't know the logic on what you guys had with that.
>>34283080"Excel, this is traditional clothing for a person of my station. It is in no way embarrassing at all and you are insulting Succubi culture by dislike it."
>>34283080It's formal garb, sis. It's supposed to make you eyecatching and odd. You should feel glad you don't have to wear it!(what does the formal garb look like, anyway?)
>>34283480It's basically like this.Gonna make some dinner, be back in a little bit.
"Excel, this is traditional clothing for a person of my station. It is in no way embarrassing at all and you are insulting Succubi culture by dislike it." you tell Excel.“Oh so you’re saying you adopted Succubus culture completely!?” Excel asks.“I guess you can say that in a w-”“Give me a niece then!” Excel exclaims.“Eh!?” you gasp.“I’m saying I want to have a niece and give Dad a grandchild before he dies!” Excel exclaims.“Actually I’m going to be living longer than you in all likelihood.” your father corrects Excel.“You stay out of this!” Excel orders your father. “Point is that my BROTHER of all people shouldn’t be wearing such a scandalous outfit!”“Well it was either to appear like this or lose respect amongst the Succubi in the city!” you exclaim. “Besides this thing isn’t as comfortable as it looks! It rides up my damn ass!”“Then take it off!” Excel yells.“I’m setting an example for those under me!” you yell back at Excel.(Anything else you want to tell your Father and Excel about?)
>>34284338Does our dad know anything about the Draugr & Miyian's teleportation/appearing through darkness?
You take a small breath from your fight with your sister before it escalates into a bigger shouting match. “Dad, do you know anything about the minions the Draugr summoned during that battle with Dio?”Your father thinks heavily for a few moments. “I’m not sure. They’re nothing like I’ve ever seen before. I’d probably say they’re golems of some sort due to their lack of emotion. Golems are also easier to transport than living beings.” your father replies. “I think the best course of action would be to try to capture one for study, if possible.”“Hm...” you say thinking.(And that’d be the end of the thread since it seems things are dying down. As for DP, there was 200 you gained from dio, then 50 from both the hostage rescue operation and your grand speech. I’ll be here to answer questions until the thread dies)
>>34284916Really, shit. I just got off from work. sure you can't go a little longer?
>>34284916Doesn't seem to have died down to me. Usually, when people have no questions, we don't say anything
>>34284916Yeah we just didn't have much to add on that last one
>>34285020>>34285061>>34285053I could go on a little longer then. It's probably because I can't think of any more material for the rest of the day. Spoilers, the first opponents on the challenger list are pushovers as the list is mainly first come first serve.Anything else would you like to handle in the day then?
>>34285120Checking on Amelia sounds good. Challengers can wait until tomorrow.
>>34285151Works for me. I had assumed that any particularly competent challengers would be noted.
>>34285165Yeah. I assumed that we wouldn't run into say the leader of the Sorcerers without warning.
>>34284916Current DP count would be 195 (previous) + 250 (new) = 445?>>34285120We could do a weighted list, where our allies set up challenging fights w/ easy ones in between. Heck, our aether is full from the hostage rescue, or nearly so.
[1/2]After spending some time with Excel and your family, you retreat back to your guest room and decide to check on how your pet Amelia is doing.Going back to your studies and deciding to procrastinate further on the letter writing, you try to casually open a space window to see where Amelia is and fail at doing so.“...Odd. My memory of her shouldn’t be that far gone.” you reply as you reach into your pocket, pulling out a small locket of Amelia’s hair to use as a catalyst for the spell and take your time in casting it, hoping to overpower any sort of ward that may be protecting her.As you open the window, you can see them being in what appears to be a small makeshift shrine in some unknown location. All of them are kneeling in front of a statue of an Angel, one with four wings with a stunningly beautiful woman.“-ot sure we can take on the new Demon Dutchess by ourselves.” the Dragonborn Paladin comments.“We’re sure we could handle her, but she has support from the Succubi community, including power players such as the Subota’s themselves. If she were to die, then there is absolutely no way we’d be able to safely retreat from the area, not with Luna Subota now in the area.” the Dwarf Fighter in armour says kneeling on the ground.“Rockfist as a point milord. Subota herself managed to ward both Old TO and Edmonton off by herself, and those wards are still active. We do not have the power to go up against a ward of that strength and expect to reasonably break through.” Amelia replies while kneeling on the ground.
[2/2]“Worry not. The forces of Celestia shall not let these people suffer under the foot of Demonic rule any longer. W-” The angel stops speaking for a moment, the head of the statue now turning to face you. “We’re being watched!”Almost immediately the Ranger gets up, turns around, and fires a bow off in one fluid movement. You barely dodge in time as the arrow hits only a few inches from your head.Immediately you terminate the connection you have with the window before immediately beginning on a small makeshift ward before they attempt to scry you back. Looking back at your chair, you grab the arrow and pull it out of the chair, looking at it over you can see the tip of the arrow appears to be somewhat distorted. Looking at it with space vision, you can see that the arrow actually exists in a four dimensional plane of sorts, but struggles to manifest within a three dimensional plane.“Hm... Distortion arrows.” you muse to yourself, that’s how he was able to use a scrying window to attack you.
>>34285910Well, that's troublesome. I suppose we shall have to take more active measures against them.
>>34285974Agreed. We'll have to check up on her another time.
Jeez everyone is pissed off about laboring under our oppressive yoke when we haven't even gotten a chance to do anything yet.
>>34286020Celestians are kinda dicks.
>>34286020To Celestia, yes. To Celestia, a demon ruling a city is literally the worst possible thing to happen to the residents of said city
>>34286020Welcome to being the person in charge! Everything you do is wrong!
>>34286020>>34286055Imagine what rock music/vidya gayems/the internet is doing to young people these days. Now imagine they're doing all of these three things at once, and that's before we're going to make the city into a Las Vegas of sorts.
>>34285910Maybe have Brodin send a messenger cherub after her in an hour or two?
Anything you wanna do? Kinda dropped something big so I'm wondering what the reaction would be.
>>34286199I want to make all the mortals under our rule happy, just out of spite.
>>34286199I had pretty much assumed that the Knights of Nii would be plotting to kill us. My initial idea is to find some means of setting up a clandestine meeting with Amelia. There, we finish her corruption, and maybe have her lead her friends either on a wild goose chase, or into a trap
>>34286244Lets do the Cherub thing. Also, I checked, and Amelia has called us Brooklyn before, just thought that worth mentioning.
You give off a small sigh as you sit down in your chair, thinking over recent events. You knew the Knight’s of Ni were going to attempt to kill you, but you never imagined it’d be this fast.“Guess defense is going to be the forefront of the meeting tomorrow.” you sigh as you spin the arrow around in your hands.“Alright... plans for tomorrow. First is talking to Sister Locosta, second is the meeting. Topics at the meeting will include defense, the Miyians i- when Beck doesn’t appear. Then last I think I’ll knock about that Carbon gang Leader bitch. Easy peasy...” you say throwing the arrow at the wall.(Alright I literally can’t think straight anymore. Sorry I really need to can the thread until next week now.
>>34286567Well thank's for the thread. Catch you then.
>>34286567thanks for the thread Sandwe need to spend some special time with our pet and maybe gently reveal to her we are the duchess
