You are Sireyi Valyenya, 21 years old, you have been made into a Baroness, and given lands on the border of the kingdom. You’re about to depart on an expedition to the Drowned Lands.Character Sheet http://pastebin.com/tsAx3JGTParty http://pastebin.com/DMfRaXQVYour Realm http://pastebin.com/jYjB9BBQRules http://pastebin.com/yKvP3AiPParty Powers http://pastebin.com/awA8AvWiThe World http://pastebin.com/3H9fnizcArchive http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/33059651/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=paladin+of+joyQM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQMQM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQMYou decide to call your tiny little angel Ophinus.“Ophinus” you say to the tiny person hovering in front of you “Ophinus, wake up.”The tiny angel opens its eyes, and smiles “Creator” it says “Nice to meet you, I’m Ophinus.”Your angel is instantly popular with your children: Ebonsong especially. They can play with Ophinus for hours, and Ophinus never tires of looking after your children.The day approaches when you must join the expedition to the Drowned Lands.The full flotilla is over 50 ships, and the expedition comprises over 10,000 people: sailors, soldiers, mages, researchers, nobles and their retinues. Each of the 4 churches is sending representation and the fleet and expedition is commanded by Duke Kostvin – one of the 5 Dukes of the Kingdom.You are joining part of the fleet in Alstersport – the full flotilla is meeting up further out to see before beginning its journey.Ebonsong, Philly, Isla, Matthias, Jianxi and Poppy are all going with you. Ophinus is hidden in your cloaks hood, occasionally giving a high-pitched “Eep!” upon seeing something new.The seven of you arrive in Alsterport, unsure of which dock your ship is departing from.As you wander along the docks you hear a loud voice behind you “Get out of the way you idiot!”
You turn to see a group of the Knights of Konig riding towards you, all the other people have made way for them, but you didn’t hear them over the normal sounds of swearing sailors, fishwives selling their wares and general clamour of the docks.The lead knight, no, Paladin by his armour and holy symbols rides up to you and looks down at you with a sneer, which turns into a look of recognition.“Well well” he says “If it isn’t the Whore Knight, did they finally kick you out, Champion of Sluts?”His words bring back all the times he used to call you that back in training, Its Gustas Garrond, the man who made your time in the training grounds of Konig far less pleasant than they had to be. He looks over your companions, clearly unimpressed, and then his gaze focuses on Ebonsong, currently in her half-dragon form.“Konigs Beard!” exclaims Gustas “A half-dragon child! Tell me Whore Knight: Is there anything you won’t rut with?”>Hello Gustas>I have a name you know, and a title>Walk away, not worth it>Introduce Ophillian, Priestess of Konig>Other
>>34773285>Hello Gustas>I have a name you know, and a title>Introduce Ophillian, Priestess of Konig
>>34773285>Introduce Ophillian, Priestess of Konig
>>34773285>Other>Is there anything you won’t rut with?”Yes, It's you Gustas. I have shame you know.
>>34773285> OtherJust laugh. Little bitch ain't worth our time.
>>34773285>You should really try to be more creative in your insults.How much of what we did is classified? I'd have thought that killing three demon-lords and saving a Lost Realm would be big news, even if we cannot say more about how we got there other than "Magic accident with ancient artifact".
>>34773285>Walk away, not worth it
>>34773285>"Still the old joker, I see."Ignore him from that moment on.
Ah, if we were even half so slutty as we keep getting accused of being.
>>34773285>Smile, snort and walk away. this bitch is not worth our time.
“Hello Gustas” you say wearily “I have a name you know, and a title, if you’re going to insult me, you could at least do me the courtesy of using it.”Gustas jumps down from his huge warhorse and walks over to you, at 6ft 6inch he doesn’t quite loom over you like he used to. Still, he’s probably about 3 times your weight, and all muscle.“I heard Baroness” he says “So nice to be able to congratulate you Baroness, services undisclosed to the kingdom, Baroness, been nursing a royal bastard have you Baroness?”You ignore that “Allow me to introduce” you say, without a hint of a smile, though Ebonsong can feel your emotions, and is grinning like a maniac “Ophillian, Priestess of Konig.”“I do believe” you say “That Konigs paladins are still organised on military lines and that Priests outrank you, yes?”Whilst Gustas is still struggling with the concept of you arguing back, Ophilian steps forward.“IS THAT RUST I SEE ON YOUR BREASTPLATE MAGGOT?” She screams in a parade voice that would make even the most psychotic drill instructor proud “IS IT JUST TODAY YOU DECIDED TO BE A DISGRACE TO MY BELOVED ORDER OF KONIG OR HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN A TUMESCENT SHITSTAIN? DON’T LOOK AT HER STAND AT ATTENTION DICKLESS!”Gustas was glaring at you but now he snaps to attention, for all his faults, he never disobeyed an order.“AM I GIVEN TO UNDERTANS THAT YOU ARE IN COMMAND OF THIS SHOWER OF SHIT?” Asks Ophilian“Sir Yes sir!” Says Gustas“SO IT’S YOUR FAULT THEY LOOK LIKE A PACK OF DRUNKARDS AND WASTRELS IS IT?!”“I take full responsibility Sir!” barks Gustas“GET YOURSELVES BACK TO THE BARRACKS AND POLISH EVERY BIT OF KIT YOU’VE GOT YOU SONS OF ORCS!” Ophilian offers a polite suggestionGustas looks conflicted “I have orders to report to the expedition flotilla.” He says
>>34773805“OH IS THAT RIGHT? THEY MAY I JUST SO KINDLY ASK WHAT IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD KONIG AND ALL HIS ANGELS YOU ARE DOING STANDING AROUND CHATTING ON THE DOCKS? DON’T LET MY DULCET TONES FOOL YOU, I AM GIVING YOU ALL ORDERS LADIES! MOVE IT! MOVE IT! MOVE IT!GET ON THEM DAMN SHIPS NOW MAGGOTS!” Ophilian directs them to move along.As the Paladins move on, Ophilian leans in to you “Well that was fun” she says “But he was wearing a commanders heraldry, once we’re on the expedition he’ll technically hold equal rank to me.”“Thanks” you say, your ears still ringing.Eventually you find your assigned ship and settle in for the voyage, it’s going to be 2 months getting to the Drowned Lands, what do you do with your time?Pick 4>Spend time with Ophilian>Spend time with Isla>Spend time with Matthias>Spend time with Jianxi>Spend time with Ebonsong>Spend time with Lunia>Talk to the soldiers>Talk to the commanders>Talk to the mages>OtherAnd also>Reveal new powers to allies (whom?)>Don’t reveal anything

>>34773905I second this. I'd like to keep the deity powers a secret between the priestess for a while.
>>34773860>>Reveal new powers to allies (All of them)Err, I don't think we need to be that open with all the soldiers and stuff. Might as well hold a press conference, at that point. Or are they excluded from "allies" and "companions"?
>>34773973Yep, we should not reveal it. We might have some problems if too many people find this out. Anyway Paladin, how do people react to the Saints you have mentioned in this realm?
>>34774000Of course they are, Companions means our party.
>>34773829>Spend time with Ophilian>Spend time with Isla>Spend time with Ebonsong>Spend time with Lunia>Reveal new power to CompanionsLittle sis won't really be surprised by us being even more amazing anyway.
>>34774011Saints are the highest mortal servants of the Gods.Equal in rank to the highest-ranking angels in a gods service.Although you've not discussed the specifics with Velya, this probably makes you the highest-ranking servant of Velya on the plane.Almost forgot, Pray to Velya?Y/N
>>34774000I was talking about our companions not the rank and file red shirts.
>>34774112YGiven our adventure, she'll probably have something informative for us.
>>34774112Heck yeah I wanna pray to velya! Gosh!
>>34774112>YHaven' talked to the boss lady in awhile.
>>34774112YIt will be nice talking to her without having an acute problem we want her to help us with.
>>34774112...Is this gonna end in a "holy spirit will descend upon you and you shall bear fruits in your womb" scene?
>>34774112Y>>34774175What is with you?
>>34774196A combination of fetishes and hope, I think
There’s a lot happening on the trip to the Drowned Lands, the Flotilla hugs the coast for much of the distance, before heading out to see.Fortunately Gustas is on a different ship to you.You spend your time with your companions, you’ve no interest in the politics of the expedition, and your new abilities make you wary of mages – you’re not sure what they’ll be able to tell of you.You spend a lot of time playing with Ebonsong: both in her half-dragon and full dragon form: she loves water and could fly and swim for hours.It is perhaps fortunate that you’re on an excursion far away from the fleet when she shows you a new trick she has.“If I wish really, really hard” she tells you “I can make an Ophinus.”“Can you?” you ask indulgently, Ophinus is currently on your back, holding onto your hair as you and Ebonsong soar above the waves.“Yes I can!” insist Ebby “Watch” gliding along she screws up her eyes real tight and in front of her appears a tiny black dragon with white feathered wings, perhaps 8 inches long, it flies along for a few moments, and then fades into nothing.“See” says Ebonsong “Told you I could!”“Creator” says Ophinus “That was...” “Yes I know” you say, you could feel that was a true angel, though a very short-lived one, like your own first attempts.>Say nothing about this to Ebby>Tell her not to do that>Tell her to keep this ability hidden>Tell her to practise>Other>>34773911Apotheosis?
>>34774273Lack of sleep.
>>34774318>Say nothing about this to Ebby>Tell her to keep this ability hidden>Tell her to practise>We are amazed and very proud of her, but its important she keeps this a secret between us for now. She should trai it though, at best under our supervision.
>>34774318>Praise her.>Explain that this power is a secret, only our friends may now this for now.
>>34774318>Praise her but explain that it might be dangerous if anyone we can't trust found out about thisAre you warning me not to mention it anymore by feigning ignorance or did you actually forget?
>>34774318...Huh. Yeah that's something we're gonna bring up with our goddess. >>34774375This
“Well done Ebby” you say, she beams, clearly happy at the praise.“This is a secret power” you say “Only friends can know of this, no one else, understand.”“Yes sister” she says, rolling her eyes at you like you just said something stupid. You wonder how long you’ve got until she’s a teenager.Once you get back to the ship you decide that now is a good time to talk to Velya.As soon as you start praying, you hear her voice in your head, as if waiting for you.“My champion” she says and then starts again “No, that’s not quite right now, Sireyi” she says “I’ve been wanting to talk to you.”“How long have you known?” you ask, you’re still a little put out over all the secrecy.“Since you were born” says Velya “You carried the spark within you as a babe.”“How?” you say“Your mother” she explains “Was on another plane on a mission for me, when she witnessed one god killing another and captured a piece of the dying gods divine essence. She and I were trying to decide what to do with it, when she became pregnant with you. Once you were born, she could no longer sense its power within her, it was within you.”“But I’m not a god” you say “I’m just a half-angel.”“Not yet a god” says Velya “But just a half-angel? Hardly – you’ve mastered powers in a few years that take others decades, did you really not wonder why?”“Not really” you admit.“The divine spark” says Velya “has always been with you, oh I damped it down to protect you, but it has fuelled your powers your entire life.”“And Salvastis” you say “Is that why he took my mother?”“Yes” says Velya “He believes that she still holds it, and is trying to take it from her.”>Ask questions (what?)>End conversation>>34774408Oh that power, right, sorry it’s late here
>>34774593>>Ask questions (what?)Have powers, wat do?Ebby have powers, wat do?
>>34774593>He believes that she still holds it, and is trying to take it from her.”Let's talk about that other Demon who, after we touched the pillar, said that he would rub into Salvastis' face that he took the wrong one.
>>34774593>"So... she doesn't want me going there to save her, because of the threat of my spark being taken? And if he knows I carry it, he would have no reason to keep her alive...">>34774677This tooAlso>Ask about Ebonsong>Ask about the Drowned Lands
>>34774593>Another demon possibly knows I carry the spark now>And what the hell do about Ebby channeling divine powers now ? Has this happened with other Saints before ?
>>34774593>I can actually make angels now. Is there a reason to not make many angels?>Does my status as your servant change? Does my standing with the other deities/angels change? Will I become...a deity, too?
>>34774593>My friend, Isla, was altered as part of the ritual to purify my essence; is there any way to reverse these effects? In particular, the mental ones.
>>34774822Good questions.>>34774840Yes, we already know how to do this.
>>34774593Do you have any idea why people keep thinking I'm a slut?
>>34774854I know we could turn her into a part-angel; I'm talking about completely reversing them, at least the mental ones.
This is powergaming.
>>34774893We're a nascent god. Powergaming is part of the package.
>>34774893That is a post.
>>34774593Do you know what happened to the Elemental Cores after the fight? And the Pillar of Skulls? The demon who was backing the beastmen mentioned that I brought a gift for him when I last entered his realm. Is he referencing the cores?
>>34775010>The demon who was backing the beastmen mentioned that I brought a gift for him when I last entered his realm. Is he referencing the cores?He was referring to the divine spark in us.
“These new powers that I have” you say “What do I do?”“Use them as you see fit” responds Velya“That’s not very helpful” you say“You were a child before” says Velya “So I gave you the answers, now you’re an adult, and you make your own answers. Stay mortal if you wish, with a few unique abilities, raise a host of angels of your own, climb to the heavens and take you place at my side: I shall welcome you, but above all – you choose.”“The Demon Urgorg” you say “He said Salvastis took the wrong Angel, how did he know?.”“On their own plane” explains Velya “Demons have more powers – including stronger senses.”“So why can’t Salvastis tell my mother doesn’t have it within her?” you ask.“You mother is a very powerful angel” explains Velya “Strong enough to hide such a thing even in a demons own domain.”“So... she doesn't want me going there to save her, because of the threat of my spark being taken? And if he knows I carry it, he would have no reason to keep her alive..." you say “Correct” says Velya “First you must learn to both increase your power, and to hide it.”“How do I increase my power?” you ask“You know how” she replies.You pause “I’m not sure I’m comfortable with that” you say.“You always were one of the most adorable of my servants” says Velya, you feel like something pinched your cheek “If you don’t want to raise your powers that way, find mortal companions you are willing to raise to angels.”“Ebonsong also has these powers” you say, avoiding that topic “What should I do?”“As long as she doesn’t show them to others” says Velya “It shouldn’t be a problem, as your familiar it’s no surprise she has your powers: Perhaps you should try making a draconic angel.”
>>34775193“Is there a reason not to make angels?” you ask “I mean, what’s my standing with other deities?”“As a god yourself” says Velya “You can raise as large a host as you want, and no one will object, well, no one important anyway” she clarifies.“Am I still your servant?” you ask“As long as you want to be” says Velya “I shall not abandon you – but nor shall I command you to stay.”“My friend, Isla,” you say “was altered as part of the ritual to purify my essence; is there any way to reverse these effects? In particular, the mental ones”“If you’re looking for mortals to turn into Angels” says Velya “I think you found a volunteer.”“I mean turning her back the way she was” you say“Not without risk” admits Velya “Demonic blood always was tricky to work with.”“Do you know what happened to the Elemental Cores after the fight? And the Pillar of Skulls?” you ask.“I don’t know where they are” admits Velya “But I believe that they are together, and that they have not left the Tribal Lands.”>More questions (what?)>That’s it for now
>>34775193>and to hide it>How do I hide it ?
“How do I hide it?” you ask Velya, she explains in terms that only someone with such power can understand.[Hide Deific Power: Costs 5 Deific Power, hides the presence of Deific Power for a week; can only be detected by others with Deific Power]With no more questions, you end your communion with Velya.You also spend a great deal of time with Ophillian, she’s always willing to talk to you, and although she’s a follower of Konig, she’s unlike any other.You’re standing at the rails one day, just looking out at the ocean when she says “Sireyi, there’s supposed to be a lot of undead in the Drowned Lands.”“So they say” you agree“Are you going to try and save them all?” she asksOh, this topic again, redemption vs smite first and don’t bother with questions“Not all of them” you say “There’s nothing I can do for mindless undead”“And those who can think?” she asks “Can you fight something like that, or will you try to convert them?”>Yes>Not if they attack me I won’t>I’ve killed in battle, Ophilian>These are not the undead that killed your family>Damned Konig-worshipper the world isn’t black and white>Leave (end conversation)>Other
>>34775416>I’ve killed in battle, Ophilian"No one is beyond redemption. No soul is so black with sin that the light of virtue cannot shine through, should they truly wish it."
>>34775416>>These are not the undead that killed your family>>Damned Konig-worshipper the world isn’t black and white>I’ve killed in battle, Ophilian
>>34775416>>I’ve killed in battle, Ophilian>>These are not the undead that killed your family>Those that are capable of redemption I will give their chance, if I can.
>>34775416>I can't answer that kind of question>Without any information on the circumstances under which they're encountered, I can't say for sure whether or not I'd try to save them>I'd like to save those that I can, but I'm not going to put your life or the lives of any of my allies in undue danger because of it
>>34775499>No soul is so black with sin that the light of virtue cannot shine through, should they truly wish it.No soul is stained so black with sinDammit.
>>34775416>I’ve killed in battle, OphilianA lot more than she has I'd bet.
>>34775416>>I’ve killed in battle, Ophilian>But I will try to convert prisoners.
>>34775499>>34775517Wouldn't be so sure, this is a setting with objective forces of evil, and there are a lot of souls out there.
“I’ve killed in battle Ophillian” you say, “I’ve burned men to cinders, I’ve cut them down with my blade and watched the light go out of their eyes, I’ve never taken joy in it, or seen the glory in it.”“So if you’re not afraid of killing” she asks “Why not destroy something that’s not even alive?”“If it thinks” you say “Then it’s as good as alive.”“But they’re evil” she points out."No one is beyond redemption.” You say “No soul is stained so black with sin that the light of virtue cannot shine through, should they truly wish it."“Fine words” she says “but not practical.”“Give over” you say “These are not the undead that killed your family.”She’s silent for several minutes, then turns to you “you don’t think I know that?” she says “You don’t think I can remember everything about the abominations that killed my family, this isn’t about that, damn you Velyan, must you pick at every wound to try and heal it!”She angrily turns to go.>Let her>I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to...>Calm her (Angels Voice)>Some wounds need healing>Other

“I’m sorry” you say “I didn’t mean to bring up the past” you put a calming, soothing tone in your voice.“Hah!” she says, sniffing, unshed tears in her eyes as she turns back to you “You didn’t need to, it’s always with me, like a wound.”“Some wounds need healing” you say as you wrap her up in a hug, she struggles briefly and then gives in.“Careful” she says “You’ll embarrass me in front of the troops.”“You’re such a guy” you say “You always were.”“Yes well” she says, holding you tight “It’s an off day for me; otherwise I’d grab your ass and bury my face in your tits.”You laugh and hold her until she’s feeling better.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------You also spend time with Poppy, she’s right at home on boats, scampering up and down the rigging like a monkey; if you couldn’t fly, you’d have no chance of keeping up with her.The two of you chat about old times, joke about old friends, recall the mocking song you once made up about GustusOne day she’s sat in the crows nest, as you perch on the beam, finishing the last verse “No one stinks like Gustus, is a pig like Gustus, oh what a guyyyyy, Gustuuuuuuuus!”You both giggle and for a moment it’s like you’re back at school, two girls without a care in the world.“You want my advice?” asks Poppy“About what?” you say“Your love life” she says pointedly, and then you’re back in the real world again, or rather, the world according to Poppy.>No>Fine, lay it on me (general advice)>About Sofia>About Jal>About Isla>About sex>About marriage>About children>Other
>>34776258>Fine, lay it on me (general advice)
>>34776258>>About Sofia>>About Jal>>About Isla>>About sex>>About marriage>>About childrenWelp. Does this count as general advice? Or is general advice somthing lik e'use this position', 'give these signs' etc?
>>34776258>Yes, please.>General advice>About Sofia>About Jal>About Isla>About sex>About marriage>About children
>>34776258>Fine, lay it on me (general advice)>And anything in particular?
“Ok fine” you say “But just the general advice, let’s avoid the sticky specifics” damn Halflings act like they invented sex toys sometimes.“Spoilsport” says Poppy, sticking her tongue out at you before continuing “You’re too timid” she says “The two girls you’ve got would love for you to chase ‘em around the bedroom a few times. And that Isla wouldn’t say no either I’d wager.”“That’s not how I am Poppy” you say “For me it’s about more than that.”“And who said I was talking about sex” she ripostes “Just kiss ‘em senseless. What I mean is, sometimes you’ve gotta go get ‘em, you can’t just wait for ‘em to fall into your arms.”“I prefer a slower courtship than you” you point out “I want to be sure that they want me, not just force them to do what I want.”“Yeah?” says Poppy “Well I got news for you Miss Gorgeous Half-Angel: Get over yourself.”“You” she clarifies “might look like you just fell from heaven, but you’re not so pretty that girls completely lose their wits around you.”“Speaking from experience?” you ask, determined not to let Poppy get all the jabs in “Because I have to say, you’re not up to my usual level.”“Is that a height joke?” asks Poppy in mock-indignation“Go over your head did it?” you ask, leaping backwards as Poppy launches herself at you, she perches on the rail as you circle around her, gliding on the ocean winds.“But seriously” she says “You really ought to-” and then she leaps for you in mid-sentence like some demented monkey. The two of you spend hours chasing each other over the ship.
You make sure to spend time with Isla, to see how much she’s changed. The crew and passengers are not exactly fond of part-demons, so Isla spends a lot of time in her cabin. She doesn’t seem too bothered she has plenty of books and has her own notes to write up from the research you two did together.Isla is still herself, but she seems more confident, more willing to put herself and her own ideas forward now.She no longer seems to swing between the old Isla, and acting like Ellahi, instead the two extremes have blended into a new Isla, one who is not so content to be passive, in conversations, or other matters....The two of you are in her cabin one afternoon discussing the more esoteric points of research regarding demonic energies you discovered during your recent blitz through the libraries of the mages guild.You’re looking over the annotated diagram she’s drawn of the magic circle you used, trying to remember if it matches up to the real thing. It’s got a lot of fine detail and you’re examining it carefully, sat on the only chair in the cabin with Isla standing next to you.“Sireyi” she says“Hmm?” you say, looking up from the diagram and turning to face her, only to feel her lips on yours and one of her hands cupping the back of your neck.>Pull back>Go with it>This isn’t you Isla>Why?>OtherTo clarify going with it does not trigger a sex scene, just some kissing.
>>34776710>Go with it
>>34776710>Go with itWhy not ? its what we wanted, and she wanted already.
>>34776710>Go with itFuck it, let's see how she reacts afterwards.
>>34776710>Go with itThis is her now, so yay.Also, I'm sad, I wanted advice regarding the marriage thing.
>>34776791Don't really know what advice we would need. The only reason why we haven't is because we don't want to consumate before having freed our mother.
>>34776827That's not actually the only reason we haven't, as was explained last thread.
>>34776847I don't think those reasons deter the readers, and I actually mend those with "us" this time.
>>34776710>Go with itI'm always up for nonsexy times kissing!
>>34776909The readers will still need to get any relationship up to rank three before that can happen.>Relationship levels>First Romance pick: Dating>Second: Serious long term relationship, not doing anything that removes virgin status>Third: Committed/Married, virgin status lost.Just to make sure, if your motivation is smut and not just the regular cute romance stuff, OP has said (several times) that this quest isn't going to have any smut, a very wise decision.
>>34777022>>34776847What was the reason, then? There was an opportunity for Sereyi to commit to Jal and Sophia, yet, it was pushed away.
>>34777077Oh really?Where was this option?You know, you said this last thread too, but then never answered my query.
>>34777022>>34777077Seiryi doesn't want to commit until she fully feels like this a truly solid thing, as shown abstrracted in the "stages". And she isn't atg stage 3 yet.I'm not interested in smut, only in not stringing the girls along any longer than actually necessary.
I want to screw all the girls, so we can powergame with the benefits...I am not good at paladin
You respond to her kiss by kissing her back. Her mouth on yours opens and her tongue darts across your lips, you respond in kind and soon you’re out of the chair.Your hands explore each others bodies; as your tongues explore each others mouths.You’re focused completely on Isla, on loving her, knowing that she’s been wanting you for so long, even though you only recently admitted your attraction to her.She’s no longer the timid little girl who hero worships you; she’s a young woman who knows what she wants and intends to get it.You’re lost in sensation, her soft skin, the taste of her lips, the feminine scent of her, she’s so delicate in your arms.When her leg wraps around yours and trips you onto the bed you’re caught by surprise. As she straddles you, looking down on you with hunger in her eyes you decide to turn the tables on her and you take a gentle but firm grip on her and reserve your positions, until you’re the one pinning her to the bed.She responds eagerly to you taking charge, arching her body to meet yours, rubbing against you and unbuttoning your breeches and trying to strip them off you.It’s that last action that brings you to your senses somewhat.“Wait, wait” you say, lifting your body up until you can look her in the face.“What?” she says, looking at you through heavy-lidded eyes “too soon.”“Yeah” you agree “I’m not ready for...”She looks disappointed briefly and then runs her hands up and down your sides “Fine, fine” she says “The clothes stay on for now, no reason we can’t have fun though?”“I suppose” you agree as she tangles her hands in your hair and pulls your face down to meet hers again.You don’t get much study done that afternoon. [Isla relationship level 1 gained]
Throughout your voyage your have heard rumblings of factions and politics, divisions within your expedition. You’ve ignored it and focused upon your companions.Eventually, after two long months, you catch sight of the Drowned LandsIn the distance they’re not much to look at: tall mountains, no different from any others; as you get closer you see a chain of islands.As your ship approaches one of these islands you see sailors exclaiming in surprise and looking down into the water. You look over the railing: below you, underneath the water you can see a whole town: buildings, streets, a town square, all eerily abandoned.As you watch a humanoid figure darts out of a doorway and back in again. No, that must just be your imagination, probably a fish of some kind.Eventually your ship anchors just off the beach and the boats are lowered, with no need of such things you and Ebby fly over to the sand, landing on the beach; you have arrived in Drowned Lands.Thread End. Thank you all for playing, I hoped you enjoyed it, and damn you Mathrian for making me fall out of my chair laughing.I’ll stick around for a short time to answer any questions people have, if I miss your quest then I’ll check the archives in the morning and post next thread. Next thread will be Saturday 12-noon BST.
>>34777158Thanks for running.
>>34777141Boner stop. not now.
>>34777158Huh. I don't suppose underwater breathing is a thing?
Thank you so much for running today Pal. Have a good night.
>>34777205Yes, so are shark people (Sahaugin)
>>34777102Of course. I have absolutely no issue with doing the deed if it's preceded by a romance and commitment (R3 relationship), which is what Sireyi wants in-character as well.>>34777141This is exactly what I wanted.>>34777158Thanks for running, OP.What did Mathrian do that was so funny?Also read that email.>>34777205>Water Breathing: Subjects can breathe underwater.It's a level two sorcerer's magic spell which we've already bought.
>>34777022I would actually like to bring all three to relationship 3 in the same year so all can marry at the same time. And then Seiryi impregnates all three girls in the same wedding night. Better put some Xp aside for that CON investment AA
>>34777233I like this idea
>>34777220>>34777222Ah I missed that. It's an awful big list, that character sheet.
>>34777086At the end of the date with Jal and Sophia.>>34777102Stage will only happen when she commits, though.
>>34777222>What did Mathrian do that was so funny?Posted the guy mopping sweat of his brow in response to one Anon getting a 1 for a passive seduction check, just struck me as hilarious.I'll respond Tomorrow
>>34777233It's up there in priorities.As far as Paladin powers go, the only one which is almost equal to it is Sanctuary 3.I'd like it if the relationships worked out that way, but given that by year's end it's likely that Isla will be at L1 and Jal/Sofia will be at L2, it might not, and I'm not going to vote to string them along.>>34777254I've memorized every word, mainly because I've been here for every single XP sheet.>>34777270There wasn't any option to advance commitment that I saw.The 'screw waiting' option wasn't a sex scene, and it would've been somewhat OoC to leap into it like that; I'd imagined it as Jal overlewding Sireyi and Sofia having to step in before things went too far.
>>34777270No, the third stage is the commitng. Its what we choose when we think Sireyi is ready.
>>34777141You sure you don't want to write smut?>>34777158Thanks for running, PoJ. Also, I have to ask you to stop communicating via email and use something more public, like ask.fm or the thread itself. Giving meta-knowledge to only one or two people is a bad practice.
>>34777329He does have an AskFM and answers any question which isn't too meta in-thread as well.
>>34777329>Also, I have to ask you to stop communicating via email and use something more public, like ask.fm or the thread itself. Giving meta-knowledge to only one or two people is a bad practice.Fair point, I'll ask those emailing me to repost questions to ask.fm
>>34777363Thank you.>>34777309I don't know man, I think that sleeping with someone woul dbe a form of commitment for Sereyi. Marriage would happen soon after.
>>34777309>and I'm not going to vote to string them along.I understand that, and I feel similar.Maybe marrying Jal/Sofia first, and then Isla might be better anyway, since they don't want to marry her afterall.We'll see how it plays out.
>>34777309>Jal overlewding SireyiMaximum overlewd?You are now imagining Jal overlewding Sireyi's brain and making it shut down and reboot.
>>34777551You've got your order of operations backwards.Commitment/marriage *then* sleeping together, not the other way around.But like I said, OP confirmed there wasn't actually any option to sleep together in-thread.>>34777363I'll be sending most of the questions from my notes to your AskFM over the next few hours.
>>34777642Would it be possible to choose advancing a relationship twice ?For the possibility of fourway marriage, assuming the ladies are okay with a fourway marriage of course.
>>34777363What is the email? There is something I'd like to ask that's not proper for the ask.fm
>>34777943I don't think OP would be okay revealing his email address publicly.I mean, think about where we are.
>>34778001Well, where did the others get his email from, then?
>>34778022Only AA has it.
>>34778022The only one that has it is me, I believe.
>>34777725It would. Posting from phone and cant recall my tripPoj
