You agree to do it, and Emilia wishes you luck, suddenly seeming all too meek as you slip some gloves on and stand in front of the door that Hydra's holed up in.With a knock you don't get a response beyond a sudden shift and some scared shrieking. Nothing worse than those Wraiths though.“Hey, Hydra Nineteen... Uh, can I call you Zicks?” You look down the hallway. Everyone else well out of sight around the corner.“Can you open the door? It's me, Faust.” Still no reply.. You think hard about what to say for a moment.“I'm hurt. I need healing.”“T-This Hydra cannot administer healing right now. T-the Red Nurse is here. H-Hydra isn't safe yet. Hydra isn't s-safe yet. Don't hurt Hydra, please.”“I'm not going to, but I'm hurt and I need your help. I'm your patient right? You checked up on me. I'm hurt again and I need healig. If you don't I'll die. Please perform triage.”There's a panicked shuffle from behind the door. “The Red Nurse can only operate. Her blood cannot heal.”“It's fine. I just need help.” With a sigh, you press at your injured arm and pull the wound open. If you can calm her down it'll be okay. She can stop the pathogen. “I got hurt by the scary lady too.”The door cracks open and there you see the little girl's eyes again in the light. Her whites have gone a flat blood red against her gray silver irises. From your face, her eyes travel down and you show her the wound.With a detached nod she lets you in. The bathroom's really clean. And despite the slowly beading bite-marks on her shoulder she's more or less fine, the clotting already occurring. She starts with plucking out a few strands of her silver hair, and stares at it thoughtfully. “I don't know if a Red Nurse can use these...”
>>34878166 Calmly, you reach for the medicine cabinet and pull out some floss. “Try this.” She seems to find some relief In the replacement and gets to work on your arm, every now and then she reflexively reaches for a piece of air instead of pulling another bit of floss out.> “You keep saying Red Nurse...”> You really like Operating on people, huh?> Do you have an antidote for that stuff?> (Other)
>>34878176>> Do you have an antidote for that stuff?
>>34878176> You really like Operating on people, huh?So Red Nurse is her second persona that kills everything.
>>34878176Thank her.Reassure her that it's safe now, the scary lady is gone now.
>>34878176>> “You keep saying Red Nurse...”
>>34878176I have no clue what would react which reaction
>>34878176> You really like Operating on people, huh?"Both of you do, Red Nurse and Hydra. It's a good skill and you do a good job. Thanks.You're safe now, the crazy lady isn't going to hurt you. What does Hydra need to feel safe?"
>>34878176> You really like Operating on people, huh?> Do you have an antidote for that stuff?Ask her if Emilia is her friend and if she wants to save her from the red nurse
>>34878166>ZicksHe actually went with it. neat
>>34878460Someone a couple weeks ago was talking about how he thought it would be cool if Asher referred to Hydra as "Zicks" because her numerical designation XIX sounds like that if you try to say it as a word. Looks like Dran decided to go with it.
>>34878176 It stings as she runs one of her needle-like claws through your skin, but the methodical work seems to do something to help her a bit. “You really like operating on people, huh?”The girl doesn't look up at you, “Born to fix and heal people. But when I'm the red nurse... We can't heal anymore. Fixing gets hard. Blood infusion does most of the the work. But Red Nurse only fixes bad people.You see that her eyes are still red. Must be a tell. “You're not dying... are you?”“No all the sisters are immune to Red Nurse.”“Do you miss your sisters?”She pauses, thoughtful for a moment before she continues to work, “I do. But they're okay.”You don't have the heart to tell her what happened to the sisters that came with her.. Or rather you know that it's not wise. “How can I help you feel safe? What makes you feel safe?”Hydra pauses again, sniffling back some tears. “I... I like it when my sisters hug me.”“What if I hugged you?”“Patients shouldn't give hugs to Red Nurses.”“But you're fixing me right now.”She stops again, pushing the tears away from her face. She spreads her arms open ever so slowly. “H-hug... please.”Feeling a touch awkward, you put your arms around the little lady and give her a pat on the head, “There, there... It's, uh okay. You're safe now.”She clutches you tightly to have a little cry for a while. There's some muffled flailing from the other room and some choice words by Marcus, but the girl eventually calms down. The flesh of your arm feels like it's on fire from where you touched her clotting blood.Hydra XIX, with eyes clear gives you a little injection with a darkened claw.
>>34878622 You ask her if she can do it for Emilia too, and she follows you close, clutching at your shirt. You make sure that she doesn't see Gertrude.“Good job.” Marcus congratulates you, Saphira on the ditto.“So... What are we doing with you-know-who?” You say with a point at the vampiric woman that's still been suppressed by Marcus.“I'll leave that up for Marcus to decide,” Saphira gives a quick look over at Marcus and nods. > “You better not be thinking of keeping her on after this.”> “Good. Take care of her Marcus.”> “Do you have the medallion, Saph?”> “I'm going to fucking bed. Good night.”
>>34878649> “I'm going to fucking bed. Good night.”We need sleep and limit points.
>>34878649> “I'm going to fucking bed. Good night.”Not sure whether we should ask for the medailion
>>34878649> “Do you have the medallion, Saph?”People who shouldn't have their hands on our things do. We must rectify this.
>>34878649>> “I'm going to fucking bed. Good night.”We need to chat to Lucy about her fucking dumb cunt fallen lust angel.
>>34878649>[x] "I'm going to stay with Hydra for a bit. If you don't just get rid of you-know-who, at least modify her contract so that shit like this can't happen again"
>>34878649> “I'm going to fucking bed. Good night.”Need sleep. Either ask now or tomorrow for the medallion
>>34878649Does Saph have the medallion on her now or something?
>>34878649>> “I'm going to fucking bed. Good night.”Take the medallion from Saph on our way up. Can't trust anyone with it.
>>34878649>> “You better not be thinking of keeping her on after this.”
>>34878695Maybe ask to include Hydra in the Zeitgeist contract thing if only in name so that they don't have to modify the contract of every single crazy that comes through here
>>34878649Can we bring Hydra with us and let her stay in our room or does she need to go get washed off or what? I don't want to leave her alone.
Pic related is an array for the purpose of merging spirit and matter.I figure it would be useful for alchemy+summoning experiments.
>>34878649 “I'm going to fucking bed.” You say with an all too needed exhale of all the prior tension. Fallen angels being shitheads and mass-bioweapon clones. When did your life take such a far turn from the norm?As you set to leave, You look back to see Hydra looking at you, “Come on Zicks, you can sleep in my bed tonight.”For a moment she seems confused, pointing to herself.“Yes, you. Come on.” She cleans up, and you make sure ti sterilize her with a soft bit of fire. Don't want to wake up throwing up blood after all.She seems a bit uncertain about getting in the bed with you, but you reassure her that it's alright. It's strange though that she's still in her Overwatch garb. A gentle black formfitting synthetic garment of some sort. It squeezes against the thick of her thighs.You try turning over at first, but she seems to instinctively curl up beside you, whispering, “Mommy.”“Just call me brother. I'm not your mommy.”“...Okay.”It's a strange thing. You vaguely recall sleeping with your sister when you were a kid. You'd get nightmares sometimes, think that some demon or whatever was out to steal your soul, or a bogeyman hiding under the bed.That was a time where it wasn't even possible. Now? Well... You get out of the bed to take a peek under. A look with the astral gives you some tell that there was something there until you checked. Like a monster of your own imagining.Sleep comes fast, and not all that fitful.“Asher.” You awaken to a familiar voice, you're sitting in a loveseat, Lucia laying her porcelain legs across your lap, a naked toe touching your face. “Well you caused quite a stir.” She nudges you a bit with her foot.“She was being a bitch.”“She's gone now you know, your cunt made Gaia swallow Asmadei. I'm short a prince and commander.” She says with a irritation seeping through her voice, “You know that she's lost until the damned earth dies or Gaia chooses to relent?”
>>34879158>A look with the astral gives you some tell that there was something there until you checked. Like a monster of your own imagining.Awesome...
>>34879158>“She's gone now you know, your cunt made Gaia swallow Asmadei. I'm short a prince and commander.” She says with a irritation seeping through her voice, “You know that she's lost until the damned earth dies or Gaia chooses to relent?”Well so much for her whining to the other fallen
>>34879181Hide yo kids. That shit might actually be in the closet.
>>34879158Emillia really rekt that bitch hard.
>>34879158Emilia steppin the fuck up.
And to think it was too much for her to go "Sure thing, Asher. I won't try to kill you or your allies."
>>34879158Next time i try that league I use a fitting circle
So now that we know what adept alchemy can do, which easily available chemicals have you guys thought of so far. HCN: aka Cyanide. Dissolves in water so we can still use hydro on itN2O: Can you say Nitro-Fiend? Cl: Bring some salt. Gas the Bones. 20 liters for from 50g Salt Octanitrocuban: Probably very close to Ashers complexity limit but turning coal into military grade explosives is pretty awesome. After a bit of studying Asher should be able to wrap his head around "carbon cube with NO2 on every corner"
>>34879158Emillia just semi-permanently removed one of the kings of hell
>>34879245Nitric Acid. Easy as fuck to make from air and water.
>>34879245chlorine trifluorid is our planned bonekiller
>>34879273Well these are other killers. Why settle for one?
>>34879245Helium, won't notice something's wrong till youve already suffocated
>>34879245We wanted ClF3 to gas/dissolve/burn the Bones.
>>34879286Because training makes it easier.Also we only have to carry that many raw materials then.
>>34879245How about just molecular oxygen?
>>34879289That's a funny way of spelling Carbon Monoxide.
>>34879286Because ClF3 is easy and deadly.>"It is, of course, extremely toxic, but that's the least of the problem. It is hypergolic with every known fuel, and so rapidly hypergolic that no ignition delay has ever been measured. It is also hypergolic with such things as cloth, wood, and test engineers, not to mention asbestos, sand, and water — with which it reacts explosively. It can be kept in some of the ordinary structural metals — steel, copper, aluminum, etc. — because of the formation of a thin film of insoluble metal fluoride which protects the bulk of the metal, just as the invisible coat of oxide on aluminum keeps it from burning up in the atmosphere. If, however, this coat is melted or scrubbed off, and has no chance to reform, the operator is confronted with the problem of coping with a metal-fluorine fire. For dealing with this situation, I have always recommended a good pair of running shoes."
>>34879158 “No, I didn't know. She said that I should worship her...” You look away, only to have your head turned back with a foot. You feel like a chastised child, small.“As you should-”“But she is not you. You are the only one that I would treat as a goddess.” That recovery makes Lucia throw her head back and laugh, he feet falling into your lap.“You are loyal to a fault my dear.” She says as she wipes away a tear of mirth. “With an icon suitably charged with power as a beacon, a carnal ritual between yourself and that cunt, and yourself as my champion and summoner. As an angel in the name of our cause and your refusal just lays it all to ruin.”“She tried to kill me,” you return, once more meek.“You insulted and refused her. Had it been myself, surely you wouldn't have been so rude?”“Of course not, I-” A foot is shoved in front of your face.“My toes are too clean. I need you to slobber all over them like a desperate dog. You'll do this for me, won't you?”> Lick her toes.> Have some pride.
>>34879317I want to see Bones regenerate while being burned by that
>>34879350>> Lick her toes.I have the weirdest boner right now.
>>34879350Why did we chose a female Lucifer again?
>>34879350Uh, nah I drawing the line here, fuck yourself
>>34879350>> Have some pride.
>>34879367Because people can't keep it in there pants and now we have to deal with the consequences
>>34879273>>34879289>>34879290>>34879317Check the ask.fm. Adept alchemy won't allow creation of elements it's just super chemistry. Well unless you want to carry Teflon around with you ClF3 is out
>>34879350I have no clue how to react
>>34879350> Lick her toes.Goddammit
>>34879350>> Lick her toes.Weird
>>34879350You know what, fuck you Luci
>>34879387We need Cl and F atoms.Cl from salt and F from toothpaste
I hate Asmodeus so much. Why did she have to be fucking difficult about things. Why.
>>34879350> Lick her toes.She's right, we had a damn good opportunity and threw it away because people are paranoid control freaks. And I'd also like to note that I don't feel bad about Lucia calling us a dumbfuck because I voted against refusing, and against lashing out.
>>34879387We could totally carry around teflon.
>>34879350No luci, fuck you.
>>34879421Same. A well deserved scolding. Although the toe licking is kinda gross.
>>34879350We should clearly start to look towards different gods for jobs.Preferably male so that shit like this doesn't happens
>>34879421So you want to be an indecisive hypocrite with no pride or worth.
>>34879350>bitch as semen demon said shit about us licking Lucia's feet>this shitNah son, Ain't proving her right
>>34879350>people trusted the Father of Lies
Where did all these blasphemers come from?
To make things clear, This is a choice between remaining faithful and forgiven by Luci or bearing some insult and Asher looking to separate himself from this.>>34879472>People didn't trust the father of lies.
>>34879350She's the one that fed our ego, now she bitches when we're egotistical?
>>34879492People are pissed off about Asmodeus still and this situation right here isn't exactly helping things what with Luci deciding to act like a bitch for the first time in ever.
>>34879350>Have some PrideI knew Luci wasn't as good as it seemed.
>>34879350> Have some pride.That's what she would do, if asked by her god.
>>34879499Remain faithful. This is our ticket to a shit ton of power. Why the fuck are people throwing this away? Asher doesn't have any honor, you kidding me people?
>>34879350> Have some pride.It hurts me to do this.
>>34879350>> Lick her toes.Fuck ya'll idiots. I ain't letting this go. It's our road to the top.
>>34879350> Have some pride.I mean I like Luci but that goes a bit far.Also in future we seek out male gods.
>>34879350> Have some pride.I'm done with her. I was wary when people voted for Lucia over the original Lucifer, but I eventually kinda started to like her.Nope. Asmadei killed it. Good bye.
>>34879534He has a great deal of pride. Did you miss the part where he tried to bitch slap an angel called himself god?
>>34879409>F from toothpasteGoogle says 0.03%
>>34879561Fuck working for gods. I'm sick of them. I'm sick of all of them and their stupid fucking agendas. Fuck them. We work to get stronger from here on out and then we drag these pompous astral assholes down off their clouds and butcher them for parts.
>>34879586We don't need to tie ourself to gods.We can still do some work for them get a reward an piss off.
>>34879456I want to actually use the resources we have available, not throw them away. Use dialogue and at least a pretense of reasonableness to establish working relationships.I'm not part of the group that cost us an Expert leveled summon due to paranoia and lashing out and killing her, a summon very closely associated to Lucia, for doing the exact same fucking things Lucia does.I was also one of the people who tried to get people to chat with Fara and peacefully deal with things before they escalated to her going murdercrazy. I've learned that in this quest people will jump on the stupid paranoid train as quick as possible, avoid resolving situations peacefully, and jump immediately to rage when someone or something tests their control freak nature. And I've noticed that people don't really listen so I don't really try that hard and watch the fuckups that inevitably arise.
>>34879593*and piss off
>>34879605>Expert leveled summonIt was actually a Master rank
>>34879499Don't get me wrong. I want to stay on board with luci, I feel pike that's a route lock. She won't make us lick her toes however. Asher will be even more useful than her one day as her 'champion' hopefully.
>>34879605Dran already agreed that being a bitch was the wrong choice to make here.
>>34879593That shit never works out because Gods are ALWAYS trying to screw with people. They are like the Jews that you see in those anti-semite propaganda pictures.
So people are throwing away ANOTHER allow right after the fallen angel event? None of this makes sense. Asmedeus is a follower of Lucifer, which we were and we told it to fuck off because we only worship Lucifer itself, and now we're casting away ANOTHER useful tool and ally? Something is fishy here.But it's over anyways. Outvoted. Damn shame.
>>34879652I honestly voted to not lick her feet just because I dont want to deal with drans femdom fetish anymore
>>34879679I should have samefagged more when we were able to vote whether male or female Luci
>>34879652Anyone who vehemently opposes even agreeing to not kill us whenever the fuck they want is someone I don't want to deal with.
>>34879679Then I'm sorry to say that you're an idiot. This is free power you're throwing away for something that costs literally nothing.
We all knew some bullshit like this was going to happen the second Dran was taking the succubus-fucker anons seriously.
>>34879696>literally nothingIt also costs our character's pride, of which he has a fair amount, and ability to be respected. Not all the joy in the world is worth being half a person.
>>34879713I'm still pissed.He promised us bro-tier luciferian summons and we got Queen Bitch
>>34879734Oh what a bunch of shit. Whatever. I'm not gonna be able to change your mind on your anti-whatever crusade.
I can't wait for people to realize that Lucia Oathed us.
>>34879742People don't take kindly to being exploded in the face.And angels don't like being denied when they're obviously on your side.
>>34879753she did?When was that?
>>34879643I suggest a fair bit of murder, it solves a lot of problems and there's definitely a time and place for it. But when dealing with someone we summoned, who is associated with our chosen deity, and is a fucking powerhouse, diplomacy was the best course.We spent time and resources on that, a medallion we might not get back, and it was Helia's first ritual sexing so considering the metaphorical importance of virginity we may very well not be able to get results that good from her ever again. And we literally got nothing out of it except Lucia, rightfully, bitching us out.And why? Because people like you are paranoid to a level where it fucks everything up, seem opposed to compromise on an ideological level, and don't even try to look for third options. And I'm going to keep watching as you lot dig yourselves even deeper.>>34879742We likely could've had a bro-tier summon and a working relationship if we were willing to work with her instead of starting out by snubbing her and then escalating to murdering her immediately.
>>34879759Those LuciLimits points I guess but I wanted off the Luci ride since the beginning
>>34879759When we said said we would do "anything" for her.
>>34879772I'm pretty sure that spend lucilimits aren't able to be taken back.Atleast Dran said so when they were introduced
>>34879756And we don't like it when they start trying to fuck with our brain. Don't even try to act like you expected us to keep her as a summon for even one second.
>>34879742Asmodeus WOULD have been a bro-tier summon. All it wanted was a sex cult, fucking and shitting on God. That's all it wanted! And you people freaked out and decided to kill it.Sex cults and fucking! How can you be anymore bro-tier?Sex cults and trust and we would have had a very powerful demon lord.I'm still astounded over the stupidity.
>>34879788Technically she only started to fuck with our brain after we refuse her.
>>34879820I'm pretty sure we didn't pick the outright refusal.
>>34879805People were pretty wary at first, but it was more or less split down the middle with many leaning towards yes so long as she could say one convincing thing or at least not do something incredibly offputting.So what does she do? She whips out the fucking mindmagic to try to control us after she flipped the fuck out and refused to even make a simple contract.
>>34879820First pick was uncertainty, essentially a vote telling her to convince us that she's not going to fuck us over. It was after that she started to fuck with our brain.
>>34879805Technically, what happened is we got mindraped by the amulet so that we'd fuck somebody, which is definitely also rape, and then the fallen angel tells us that she wants us to submit and worship her, refuses to make a contract or take any obligation not to fuck us over altogether, and then tries to threaten us. It may have escalated, but I don't see how it could have gone any other way. No, she should have chilled the fuck out and tried to approach us like a reasonable god damn person.
>>34879846>female>dran quest>reasonableIt was doomed from the start.
>>34879788It was a minor mindfuck, the Followers have done more to us, Lucia has done far more to us, Zeitgeist has tried to fuck with our head, though more through mundane coercion methods and incentive.A bit of mindfucking isn't the biggest deal. The world isn't fair, and fallen angels aren't known for compromising. We could've gotten something good out of this, and people threw it away.
>>34879859It's suprising how much different this situation would be if we had chosen a male Lucifer
>>34879861It's almost like people want an early grave.
>>34879350 “No.” You stiffen your jaw.”“Excuse me?” Lucia responds nigh-incredulous. “You insult our cause and now you refuse such a generous penance? Darling, you wound me.”You stand, looking over at her with both eyes here in the astral realm. “I won't stand for this shit. You know that Asmadei threatened Emilia? She is mine. No one threatens what is mine.” You point a finger out at Lucia as your rage blossoms.“Not even you.”Taken aback, Lucia's smile only turns wider as she stares back with an absolutely incredulous expression, “Oh? Is that so?”You quickly take a defensive step back as she uncrosses her legs, standing up. “Yes.” You hold your fingers up, digging deep for power.“Something that I'd given to you, shall I take it away? Rip it from your soul?”“It is also mine and I will not return what has been given to me.”“And where will you go? You think the mad Asherah will take you back? Her followers are all lunatics. Sure you'd like to be like that?”“I wouldn't go to Asherah.”“Oh? Then you'd take refuge with that Saphira? But where will your unguarded spirit rest whilst those of my domain seek to plague your slumber?”“I...” You begin to falter, her words running deep. Without her, you are nothing, aren't you? Without Lucia. Who is Asher but another worthless human? She gives you purpose. She desires you to lead, to have followers, and power. All she asks is that you love and submit to her. Who would love you but her?“I am sorry, Lucia...”“Of course you are. Your refusal was quaint mortal, but your filth must know its duties to the fallen. We lift you up and together we crush god. Yet for now- you taste my feet.” She lifts a foot and presents her toes. All too clean, all too sweet.Your mouth opens.> Succumb. She's your love and you promised her that you'd do anything.> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...
>>34879846>It's okay when The Followers do it>It's okay when Ashera did it>It's okay when these faggots do itAll the sudden>Hey. Fuck bitches and worship me like you do my lord and I'll give you power>WHOA WHOA WHOA FUCK YOU DON'T TRY TO CONTROL ME EVEN THOUGH WE'VE BEEN CONTROLLED BY BASICALLY EVERYONE WE MET BEFORE THIS.
>>34879891Yeah what a terrible mistake that was
>>34879898> Succumb. She's your love and you promised her that you'd do anything.
>>34879898> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...
>>34879898>> Succumb. She's your love and you promised her that you'd do anything.Voting even though I'll be heavily outvoted.
>>34879898>> Succumb. She's your love and you promised her that you'd do anything.
>>34879898>> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...Well, I'm sure she has no god damn use for filth. We'll just go out and take care of our own shit. Fuck this.
>>34879898> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...I think we already know how this is going to go.
>>34879902This is pretty much why I'm confused.
>>34879898> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...>>34879904The biggest we've ever made
>>34879898>[x] Succumb. She's your love and you promised her that you'd do anything.
>>34879929Yeah but there was never that removal of Pride I guess. Pride is the key word here
>>34879898> Succumb. She's your love and you promised her that you'd do anything.>>34879929I don't get it either.
>>34879929No, it's never been OK when they did it, the situation has just always been such that refusal would have been met with instantly getting murdered.Here we had a summon, something we popped into the world, trying to control us directly. Something siphoning off our power to exist, like a parasite, that we should have had control over.Other massive forces and organizations conspiring to fuck us over? I don't like it, but I can roll with it to not die. Our own power being hijacked by some cunt demon angel whatever for a joyride? Fuck her.
>>34879929You're right that there has been too much leniency in the past, but these guys are taking it to a new level. And it's a level that's unacceptable for anybody that would call themselves a human being.
>>34879898> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...It'll hurt, but it's something we have to do.There's two ways this can pan out for us.1. She respects our rebellion, since she's the avatar of that shit and gives us yet more power.2. We get our shit pushed in. But we'll be stronger in the end for it, because we'll be free. We'll make our own goddamn destiny. We may even become a god, and not some pawn in her shadow.
>>34879898> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...>Who would love you but her?Emilia would I guess
>>34879973Yeah, all that pride Asher has. So much pride that he follows anyone who asks him. So much pride that he allows people to place zeitgeist curses on him.ALL THAT PRIDE.
>>34879898>> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...
>>34880003It was either that or being mindwiped at some random place still with his hex on him
>>34879929>>34879973I mean people would die for Pride even starve. People can take a lost of control but almost never pride at least till they get beaten down.
Goodbye Lucifer. Our power fountain.
>>34879898> Succumb. She's your love and you promised her that you'd do anything.>>34879929It's funny, I just came into the thread and I just think that many of the players are just gluttons for punishment. We finally found some safety with our new 'buddies' and some minor little things happen here or there but the second something REAL interesting happens we can't deal with it and spaghetti everywhere.
>>34879898> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...The symbol of rebellion wanting us to submit our will.No thank you
>>34880003We have to work with other people, that's the only way to get by in life, in the fictional or the real world. But you don't ever need to lick someones feet unless you're a giant beta bitch.If I work at a business and my boss tells me to such his dick for a promotion, you don't go '"Well, you already work for him, so what the fuck is your problem?"
>>34880003Fine dignity or whatever. There a perceived level of pride even if it's not even there. If Saph asked us to lick her toes people would have told her to fuck off I bet.
>>34879898> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...It was never a good idea to trust Lucifer
>>34879898> Succumb. She's your love and you promised her that you'd do anything.Let us avoid the stupid option.
>>34879898Vote end. Let's see what destiny ya'll chose.Whatever it is, I hope it's the right one.
If Asher had any real Pride, he would bitch out after a little stunt like a Fallen Angel who just wanted some poon.
>>34879898>> Resist. No... No... You need to get away. There must be a way out...What is even happening anymore? When did my precious best-waifu Luci turn shit teir and get replaced by Emilia? I miss two threads and this is what I come back to?
>>34880057You and your femdom fetish
>>34880057There was a lot of samefagging here.
>>34879929No, people despise that shit, but the situation is always engineered in a way that gives no real choice. It was the followers or wander around in a ruined shithole full of monsters and government agents taking people off to who knows where. We didn't like Asherah at all and told her to fuck off the second she didn't live up to the hype.People were pissed the fuck off about Zeitgeist, but we know Marcus would instantly murder us if we did anything about it.Asmade, though, looked like it was at least possible to say no to.
>>34880057Fuck I'm gonna be angry if we succumb. But I won't be involved in a shitstorm, I promise. Though I will probably sullenly ask for a final destination vote as a last ditch effort.
>>34880057It's not the right choice. You know people are resisting not because of "Pride" but because they're tired of your "femdom" fetish, which in my opinion, shouldn't be legit votes. But whatever.
>>34880075>What is even happening anymoreThe Father of Lies reveals his other side
>>34880100I don't see the point in shitstorming in a quest. If it's an unreasonable decision that makes any possible attempts to continue the quest either worthless or outright offensive, like succumbing here, then you really should just drop it altogether.
>>34880103No man, I want Asher to be a powerful respected mage who isn't a bootlicking fuck.
>>34879929You've ended up with a core group of paranoid, but extremely shortsighted, control freaks. Then, after the light bit of mindfuckery you gave them a choice between a violent knee-jerk reaction or admitting 'defeat'. And sure, there's always a custom option, but considering how people bandwagon on things quickly those often don't really have a chance to get off the ground.I'm not saying this is entirely your fault, but you could've seen a decent bit of this coming and presented it better. But nothing I can really do about it even if I'm kinda disappointed at how these threads tonight have gone.
>>34880079Very close, a difference of 1 vote by my count.Okay, here's the rub.Do you guys want>the possibility branch to Asher Meeting Faust>Or Asher becoming the king consort to Lucia.with that out in the air, I want to know what you guys really want.
>>34880108What other side? You people keep saying this but it makes no sense at all.
>>34880133>the possibility branch to Asher Meeting FaustFuck yes
>>34880133>Or Asher becoming the king consort to Lucia.
>>34880133>>the possibility branch to Asher Meeting FaustAlchemy all the way. I am fucking done with this angel shit, and so should the rest of you be. Even a fucking dog will bite back if you kick him in the face enough times.
>>34880133Number 1 plz
>>34880133What does King consort even mean?
>>34880133>>Or Asher becoming the king consort to Lucia.I'm tired of being a wishy washy faggot.
>>34879566I missed this and now I want hte archives of the start of this quest, did some one save one for them all?
>>34880133>the possibility branch to Asher Meeting Faust>>34880153little bitch who licks her feet
>>34880133Don't care which they both sound pretty baller.
>>34880133I'd rather be king of hell, but not because I'm being up-jumped by someone more powerful than me. I want to do it myself. Meeting Faust would help with that I'm sure.
>>34880153We become king.
>>34880133Let me just ask, is there a "wrong" choice in that one of them will lead to suffering and no positives and the future will be perma-gimped, or are they simply diverging paths which are both viable?
>>34880160It was the last thread. And he did it BECAUSE of his loyally to Lucifer. Which apparently is out the window now.
>>34880133>the possibility branch to Asher Meeting FaustThat guy knows how it feels to get fucked up by the devil/Luci
>>34880133>>the possibility branch to Asher Meeting Faust
>>34880133>the possibility branch to Asher Meeting Faust
>>34880178Diverging paths.One will be more supported by your friends at Zeitgeist.The other will bear some hiccups, but not necessarily be opposed with Zeitgeist.
>>34880180People voted against it for many different reasons.
>>34880133You do realize this won't stop samefagging.
>>34880133>the possibility branch to Asher Meeting FaustI don't want to deal with Angels anymore
>>34880133Either one is fine with me, I just don't want to get mindfucked by fucking summons.
>>34880133End.Faust it is.
>>34880133>Or Asher becoming the king consort to Lucia.
>>34880133>>Or Asher becoming the king consort to Lucia.>>34880133Voting for this because I don't think Alchemy is going to be NEARLY as good as Anons think it'll be.No way Dran is going to allow us to use poisonous, super exploding gas to kill everyone instantly. It would be too easy. It'll probably cause super drain or be too fucking difficult to do some other shit.
>>34880256Cheming it up will be easy. Finding it and having it in supply is a different matter. And there will be overs that have contingency for such things.
>>34880256Faust is also a summoner
>>34880256>It'll probably cause super drain or be too fucking difficult to do some other shit.that or there would some blow back. Shit would be a pain to use effectively without getting caught blase unless he decides to become a suicide bomber if he is using that shit on the spot.
>>34880289We have aerokinesis. Blowback is always a threat, but we can make it so the air doesn't move towards us at all if we want.
Legend of Asher>The Betrayer>Sacrificer of Bitches>Summoner of Problems
>>34880289From ask fm>So we have to carry some raw materials for our bone-killer chlorine triflourid?Yep. Though magicking it together from there would cause exceedingly little burn.
>>34880317It's not our fault that bitches throw themselves at problems for us.
>>34880317Looks accurate.Got any more to add to the list?
>>34880317>The Betrayer x3FollowersAsheraLuciferI'm sure we'll betray these fuckheads eventually.
>>34880331x4We betrayed our nation to join the Followers
>>34880331Well atleast we didn't jumped at the first job offer from Overwatch.>>34880339I don't think that counts
>>34880331>>34880339Luci picked her champion candidate a bit too well, it seems.
>>34880331>>34880339>>34880339Am I the only one whose getting tried of being turncoat all the time?
>>34880331I agree. I also don't have any real problems with that, we're just looking out for #1.
>>34880356You can never have enough enemies in a world where conflict breeds strength.It's going to fuck us over in the end.
>>34880356I actualy voted for staying with the followers.But Zeitgeist offer was way too good, or rather the consequences of refusing were to dire
I think we should go on a Fool's journey.
>>34880363Lucifer WAS #1. But we threw that out the window.
>>34880356Nah, they're all assholes.
>>34880387And we are the biggest.Well aside from Gertrude, Fuck her
>>34880382>I want the protagonist to be the protagonist
>>34880356Maybe people should stop taking advantage of us?>>34880383I never wanted her to be. I just wanted power in exchange for services, businesslike and professional for our own gain. I'm glad we didn't lick feet after she called us a dog.
>>34880383I was against turning her into a woman at the first place.Male Lucifer was much easier to deal with and would have prevented Dran from going full Femdom
>>34880387People are only interested in what you can do for them. Always have been, always will be.
If Luci is removed, I guess that means Asher's glow is going to revert to that cyan color instead of the ember read it is now.
>>34880397To be fair, we didn't even betray the Followers willingly, and sticking Lucia would be a sign of mental deficiency. We did screw Asherah, sure, but she was trying to en-debt us to her.
>>34880383Didn't Dran describe Asher's relationship with lucifer with Crawling in my skin?
>>34880397Asherah was a cunt.>Oh yeah, healing is so fucking hard!>I can't give you proper payment because I have to fix your eardrums so hard!>It's not like a mid-tier fae can do just as good a job>It's not like a mit-tier hydromancy can't do just as good a job>It's not like a total novice magi-surgeon can't do a better job.
>>34880452That was her themesong, I believe.Fucking hilarious honestly.
>>34880460I think morgan is mid-high tier.Actualy Asher isn't that much of a turncloak.Followers to Zeitgeist was forced because otherwise we would still be hexed and mindwiped in some random city.
>>34880477Just checked.It's actualy Belialia's theme song
>>34880505Belila had a pretty fucked up backstory if you ever read the first Overhuman.She was a cancer kid, terminal, and her parents were some of those dickbag faith healer nuts. First day of the magic happenings she has her awakening and ends up killing her family because she invoked demons and they tried to kill her or something.
>>34880521Is Dran the Urobucher of Quests?
>>34880521She was mad at them and went into a rage.The demons she invoked were the last things her parents thought about her.>>34880531What?
>>34880542Urobutchi is a japanese author who is famous for generous amounts of character drama and suffering. He's also something of a washed-up hack.
>Find song that's apparently about Fausthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pg7r31QxIS0Can't be any worse than Crawling as a themesong.
>>34880542Some anime guy who makes stories where everyone gets killed off or something.
>>34880531Nah. He strikes me as more of an Ishida Sui.If someone had told me the end of Tokyo Ghoul and said that it was the end of a Dran quest I'd never read, I'd probably believe them at first if I had never read TG.
>>34880572Oh man how that ended was a huge bummer
>>34879898 Trembling, you will yourself away from her toes, as clean and immaculate as they are. Even as much as you want to wrap your tongue around them to please her. You come of mind, there's something wrong, severely wrong.It's hard to think when she gives you a command. It's hard to understand exactly why it is that you want to obey. But you realize for a moment, and that's what it takes, that you are wrapped around her fingers, putty in her hands.“I... will... not be... controlled.” You slowly grit your teeth shut, and force yourself to stand, even though your body's like lead. Even though you'd rather stay at her feet and by her side.“So you would break your promise to me?”“Y-yes...” You tremble, again pressing your fingers together in rebellion. “S-stay... out... of my head...”Lucia pouts her lips, “But darling, I'm not in your head. I'm in your soul. That fire within you, that drive, the desire to win. Even your current rebellion. You think that it's you? I made you.”“Made me?” The words cut deep and you're confused again for a moment before finding your center, “You... Didn't, I'm me.”“Why did you burn that house down? Douse that man in gasoline and make sure he was on fire?” Lucia smiles, “That was my influence. I couldn't stand for my darling to be picked on by those brats.”“Liar.” You mutter, trying to dig in for your magic.
>>34880600 “Don't hurt me.” She says, and you halt. “I'm not lying. You know that I'm telling the truth. You think magic just popped into the world?” She walks by you, a hand sliding across your cheek as she gently passes around you, inspecting. “It's always been here. There's just a high tide and a low tide. Gifted and ungifted. World isn't fair after all. Some are just born with talent, others with contagious Cynicism...”“Mothers that lift cars to retrieve their children. Pastors healing people and casting out demons. Monks that train for decades to master the art of ki. Magic wrought from latent energy... If only Jesus of Nazareth hadn't decided that this age would be one without magic. Shutting those floodgates and letting man do as they please was the worst thing such a holy man could've done.Before there were great works, the pyramids constructed by powerful master magicians and their slaves, holy men, that could heal with a touch, the Buddha that mastered his own reincarnation enough to survive the cycle of life and death.Such a mistake, and now such madness as we all try to make sense of the world again now that it's back in force...” Lucia throws her head back in laughter.“Why are you telling me all this?”“Why? Because I want you to know that the world's been different. You were only ignorant to the changes.” She sits down, and a throne appears.“To reclaim what I've given you, I'll need to tear you apart. Please hold still for this.”“No.” You growl, trying to steady your head out of the haze that it's been put into, your astral body unwilling to move itself. You feel claws of shadow and light digging into your astral body and pulling, seeking to rip you piece by piece. “No! Please no!” You scream... But who would you expect to answer?But something does answer, "Wait."
>>34880600>Starts a whole "I am the one that gave you power" speechNo I'm do...>>34880693>[Happenings intensify]Fine I'll stay
>>34880693Didn't you say she can't reclaim Lucilimit points?
I hope she does take away the powers she gave us. We don't deserve them.
>>34880772>How Asher became worse than Hot Rod
>>34880693>"Wait."Oh look, it's the original mirror inhabitant that she's been squatting over this entire time.She wasn't in us originally. Or glow thing didn't change until she gave us pyromancy and it didn't change significantly until alchemy.
>>34880693 An eye appears from the fabric of this reality, a mountain range's crust and a deep blue sea going unto abyss while framed by land for an eye. “This child is loved.” a great voice rumbles the confines, even so far as to give the mighty Lucia pause.“Gaia.” She hisses like acid upon her tongue, “Why do you intervene?”“I would return your swallowed commander to see this child of mine unmolested and freed from you and yours from here on.“I don't need help from-” You start, but Lucia quickly silenced you.“You would return her? Unscathed?” Lucia asks.“Yes.”“Do so then and he goes free.”“You will allow him freedom first. I may wait.”Lucia, understanding the term closes her eyes. “Very well, you'd outlive me unto the next apex species to arise from the ether. He goes free and Asmodae is returned to me.”“Agreed.”You feel the binds lift, and a sudden relief overcomes you, though there's a tensing as Gaia returns Asmodae.“As agreed.” She says, and the fallen angel comes out all flowery and fawn-like. “Unscathed.” As Lucia begins to protest, the fawn pounces on and starts humping away at Lucia, much to the latter's distraction. As it stands, you thank Gaia and hurry back to the real. Eye blinking open, you find that Emilia's holding you tight around an arm, while Zicks is snuggled up against the other.Making your peece with the predicament, you let yourself doze off, resolving quite firmly that come the morning you're getting a dreamcatcher and heavily warding everything. You're pretty damn sick of these spirited away dreams.Come morning breakfast, Saphira announces that since Eloc's company is participating in the fashion show, everyone's going on the last day to see the finale.Never ends with these people, does it?Least you'll get to see Anna Swan in person.
>>34880823Suprise Lucifer lies.
>>34880824Well Gaia is usefull.Nice
>>34880824Welp. With Lucifer gone, I take my leave as well.I can't play with players this retarded.
>>34880862Good fucking riddance to a half of a person like yourself.
>>34880862'til next thread
>>34880862Loving these hellblazer reactions.
>>34880862I look forward to seeing you stick around to bitch about how everyone else is retarded for the rest of the quest.
>>34880862why the hell would you want to deal with an entity that wants to enslave you and turn you into a puppet? The moment that bitch told me to lick her feet id flip my shit too.
>>34880862Luci wanted a slave, not what I came here to play
>>34880862Luci's own words were the undoing of the relationship between her and Asher. One of the first things she told us was to not bow to these astral "gods", and likened them to bloated thoughtforms.
>>34880862I liked Luci but I don't know how you can support her after what she pulled this thread
So is the medallion totally fucking worthless now or could we perhaps melt the thing down into raw mana at a penalty rate for overall potency when compared to the Luciferian fuckmagic aspects and use it for something else?
>>34880990We could feed it to a bone and see what happens
>>34880887I'm not even mad here. Stay with Luci, abandon Luci, whatever. It works either way. I'm still just happy that Xix is the ultimate in loli boneslayer technology.
>>34880997Aw geeze. Leave Hughes alone.>>34881005Echidna is cooking up something even worse than that.
>>34881019>Echidna is cooking up something even worse than that.The clonemother must die.
>>34881019I shriek femininely at the mere thought of something worse than Fuck-Everything super cancer Ebola aids.
>>34881019>Aw geeze. Leave Hughes alone.Did you just confirm fun if we feed him the sex medallion?
>>34881019>Leave Hughes alone.So, the twinkielord is a Bone, eh?Gas the Bones, magic war now!
>>34881043Least it makes sense for why Overwatch's started to gain some ground, yeah?
>>34881019So, basically, Echidna is doing what I would do in Oververse
>>34881063You probably shouldn't mention the twinkie.
>>34881082Cooking up Bonekillers?You would have my full support
>>34881080No, but Yes and maybe.
>>34881082Self-impregnating and pooping several kids a day via magic with massively different genome and specialization akin to some kind of termite colony?Hey, if that isn't magical realm, I don't know.
>>34881140I think he means exterminating the Bones.
>>34881140I don't know if I'd be using myself as the growth tank, I mean I might, but I'd definitely investigate other avenues first.
>>34881140When's the next thread?
>>34881154>The mutie hunt begins.Best start thinking of some derogatory slang for everyone.
I'm making a face right now. I voted to ditch Luci anyway because everything was fucked by that point anyway, but this still bothers me immensely.Oh well. Hopefully we can open up Asher's Astral Chop Shop and make it work.
>>34881140That could be horror if its spun that way.A forest with trees made of urine that the PCs have to pass is magical realm, its an obstacle that ends in the characters unable to avoid something that's obviously a weird fetish.Its hard to know though, for instance Star Wars is a great series but it does some things that put the characters in weird situations that could be considered magical realm. Ultimately it boils down to whether or not you trust your groups collaborative storytelling ability.
>>34881211http://pastebin.com/xQt56BXsI guess there should be a couple minor changes now that Luci has been remove.
some one please archive this thread.
>>34881264It was already done hours ago.
>>34881264Dran archives it as soon as he creates it
>>34881211"Bone" works.Gas the Bones, magic war now.
>>34881288Just as a question, but how far have we diverged from your rails?
>>34881294Mutie Freaker. Monster. Troll...?
>>34881308>Implying calling someone Bone isn't insult enough
>>34879350>With an icon suitably charged with power as a beacon, a carnal ritual between yourself and that cunt, and yourself as my champion and summoner. As an angel in the name of our cause and your refusal just lays it all to ruin.The way these two sentences connected has been bothering me this entire thread. Did you fuck up copypasting or something?
>>34881303I had a couple paths plotted out.I'd expected you all to jump on the summon and finally had a luciferian summon that was interested in the same ends.But in the event of rejecting that there was basically the slate for Asher to reject Lucia and the possibility that he gets more into Faust and the freedom that Zeitgeist will offer once the other new recruits are trained up to satisfaction.That even with Hydra also went about as expected or as far as I'd planned.You can switch rails, but thus far I have an idea of what kind of tracks along with divergent ones to lay.>>34881319Nah, just fucked up editing the line.
>>34881354>I'd expected you all to jump on the summon and finally had a luciferian summon that was interested in the same ends.Not even the most basic of contracts and fucking with our mind was realy not a good way to make people like that summon
>>34881388Hey, still had sex.
>>34881354>I'd expected you all to jump on the summon and finally had a luciferian summon that was interested in the same ends.I wanted to jump on the summon, but I just couldn't do it without a tiny bit of assurance that she wasn't going to bite is in the ass. Pretty much anything would have worked, Luci just whispering "you can trust her" or something would have firmly swung me from "I'm not sure..." to "HELL YES!". Or her just going "I'm not going to slaughter you or your playthings" would have worked too.Instead she staunchly refused to even imply that she couldn't kill us and break all our things on the slightest whim and tried to force acceptance through magic and that swung me hard to no.
>>34881388this guy gets it>>34881403true
>>34881403Hey did we get limit points for that?
>>34881354>Her first action upon being summoned is to slap on a demonic visage and threaten us with harm for for saying "Asmodeus">Refused contracts after the first season of the quest was basically drilling us with the importance of contracts non-stop>Mind magic as a first resort over any number of more reasonable thingsYou really didn't expect the players to hate her? /Really/?
>>34881439That would mean we actually got something from this clusterfuck, so no.
>>34881452We managed to beat down and restrain a King of Hell for a while before Emilia burned her limit point
>>34881475Emilia managed to beat her down. We Blinked away and then cut ourself in a futile attempt to bind her.
>>34881489If I remember correctly our rod-fiends beat her down.Could be with help from Emilia though
Well thanks for running, Dran. Can't say I enjoyed it really, but maybe next thread.
>>34881354>I'd expected you all to jump on the summon and finally had a luciferian summon that was interested in the same ends.Why? Because we had tiny little nuggets of meta knowledge that they were supposedly "bro"? We had zero in-universe indication of that. The way Asmadei acted was like evidence AGAINST the claim that they'd be bro summons. People wanted to not get fucked over more than they want a powerful summon, and the only possible reasoning behind Asmadei's actions is a desire to fuck us over.
This entire episode can be summerized as:"When you assume, you make an ass out of you and me."
>>34881354I can't help but wonder how much Saph's idea of "rejecting the old" seeped into the minds of the players. I mean, we still might have rejected Asmade, but would we have rejected Lucia as well?All in all, the thread was actually pretty good from a non power-gaming point of view. We got laid, summoned and defeated a fallen angel, hugged a little girl, and became our own man.
>>34883785>but would we have rejected Lucia as wellWe wouldn't have if she hadn't tried to make us lick her feet.personaly I would have no problem working for gods if we keep a strict buisness relationship. We provide a service, get paid , go off.
Bonekiller gas is actually highly profitable for an Alchemist to produce.>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PolychlorotrifluoroethyleneThis stuff is C2ClF3. Just remove the carbon and we have anti-Bone gas. Add carbon to the anti-Bone gas and we have a harmless plastic. This means that if supplied with Carbon, Chlorine, and Fluorine, we can stockpile as much anti-Bone gas as we want, and it will be perfectly safe.>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_bifluorideOur source of F. It costs appox. $2000 per metric ton. We'd actually profit from Alchemying it into its component parts and selling off the Potassium, as pure Potassium is about $100 per gram, $65/g if in bulk.>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_chlorideOur source of Cl. Normal table salt. It's about $200 per metric ton. Similar deal with the KHF2 in that selling off the Sodium after extracting the Chlorine would be a massive profit. >http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GraphiteOur source of C. About $2000 per metric ton. Nice and simple, nothing but Carbon in here. No byproducts to worry about.
>>34884183Oh, right. Sodium is ~$25/g if selling in bulk.
