Which Minerva is a part of. Hectic? Yeah. It's been that kind of day.
>>35962430You get yourself some much needed sleep. You're going to need it. The morning comes quick – quicker than you would have liked. But at least you woke up at a reasonable time. You're tempted to check up on Sandra, but you decide otherwise. She might get mad again like that one time. You'll settle for a knock on her door. “Sandra,” you call out to her. No response. Maybe she's sleeping?The main door squeaks open. Sandra pops out, nodding curtly at you. Maybe not. “Sandra.” You repeat once more, now that she's actually here. “I'm sorry that–”“Spare me the sob symphony, please.” She holds up two fingers. “I just want to know two things. What happened and what did I miss while I was out?” “Do you want the long story or the short one?” you inquire.“Short, but with the important details added in,” Sandra answers. “Where to begin,” you muse. “Well. We arrived in a nation called Arkad, who is at war with their own rebels. Arkad Insurrexica, I think? Anyway, they're fighting each other because they seceded and Arkad didn't like that because they are a conquer-nation or something like that. Anya, the blonde, is on Arkad's side. I think she hates me. Minerva's the blue haired girl that you didn't really get to meet because you were busy being unconscious. She’s nice, I guess.”Sandra massages the bridge of her nose, exhaling slowly. “Okay. Did you pick sides?”“No,” you respond. “I don’t know enough so I want to investigate before I can do anything.” “I see.” She mulls over the matter, tapping her finger to her chin. “Oh, and. About the fight against the Arkad woman.”“What about it?” “...Good job,” she brusquely coughs out.
>>35962457A knock on the door. You open it to find Nina and her crewmate, uh. You never asked for his name, did you? “Heya,” the guy greets you. “How was the place?” “It could've been better. We got stuck in the middle of a battlefield the moment we stepped foot in the place, so we didn't get far.” You still have no idea what his name is. You hand him the map, pointing to the general area. >Desire Granted! Explore the unknown area. >Current BP: +10(x2)+11 = 31/75 BP“So did you run for your lives?” chuckles Nina. “No,” Sandra cuts in. “He obliterated them.” “That's our god for ya,” the man whistles. “As expected of Vala.” “I can rest easy knowing that you'll make the right decision.” Nina kneels, giving you a formal bow. “We don't have any army, but we'll be your moral support! Ffion backs you, whatever you do. You are our benevolent deity after all.” >Belief Points granted. Current BP: 5(x2)+31 = 41/75 BP“Thank you. And peace be with you.”“Good luck!” the man shouts. “Yeah. I'll take any luck I can get.” Motioning for Sandra to get closer, you smirk. “Ready this time?” “No,” she groans. “Go anyway.” And the two of you disappear. >41 – 10 = 31/75 BPYou reappear with Sandra, but not at the place you expected. The area looks different from the previous battlefield. It's a lot more rural and not ransacked with the aftereffects of your magic. Just ahead are two girls. One with frizzy brown hair. The other with white hair. “Uh, hi,” you call out to them. Sandra, still woozy after the teleportation, wobbles away.“He's trying to kidnap a girl!” What.Then they both shoot at you. >Roll 2d100+30

>>35962642Both within three of 100. That's about a 0.09% chance
>>35962623>>35962642I spoke too soon...
So, does Vala look like a 20 year old or like a 40 year old or..?
>>35963012Might be funny if he was a 40 year old who progressively got younger as more points are put into Influence/Strength.
Magic bolts. Reaaaaally weak ones. You don't bother deflecting them, instead swatting them away with your hand. They fizzle out with a whimper. “Uh, I only want to know where–” The girl with the brown hair steps in front of the white haired girl. Her look of bravery is unyielding, if not melodramatic. All you want to know is your current location. Is that so much to ask for? She throws out a spear of ice. A rather flimsy one. You can tell that it's rather fragile, so you lightly kick it with your sandal. It shatters completely, much like the poor girl's battle spirit. Is... is she crying? “So, um,” you continue. “...Where am I?”The white haired girl blinks numbly. “Could you not be one of Arkad's men?”“I wish you'd ask me that before you shoot me,” you sigh. “Anyhow, could you take me to a safe place? My vassal's about to pass out again.” Sandra, as if responding to your words, keels over.“...Please?”They take you there, but not without making it as inconvenient for you as possible. Well, at least the brown haired girl is. She alternates between pouting at you and avoiding eye contact. The other girl seems more comfortable. She takes you to a small village, even smaller than Ffion's Village of the Clouds. You enter a cottage, bustling with children on the first floor. You set Sandra down on a nearby cot. “Just... let me be for a while. You figure things out.” She waves you off, covering her eyes with the back of her hand. “Traveler,” the white haired girl speaks. She motions for you to sit down, so you oblige her. “Where do you hail from?” “Ffion Isles, if you know where that is. It's an island high up in the sky.” She frowns. “Can't say I've ever heard of it before. Our community has little business outside.” You shrug. “That's okay. I've only recently figured out how to get out. And it isn't the most surefire way either.” “Then how'd you do it?” she inquires.>By being a god>It helped that you had a map. >Magic.
>>35963308>>It helped that you had a map.This. With the most straight face possible.
>>35963308>By being a god
>>35963308>It helped that you had a map. Divine magic?
>>35963308>It helped that you had a map.
>>35963308>It helped that you had a map. I picked a direction and prayed(to noone in general)
>>35963308>>It helped that you had a map.
>>35963308>>35963408may as well mention the whole "magic" thing as well.
>>35963308>you would've won your first rollWhat. How weak are they?
>>35963470probably not divine? Sheesh, give the mortals a break.
>>35963470Sandra is part god and her best stat is rank 1 magic.They're normal humans, so rank 0 or 1 at best most likely.Vala is r5 magic.
“It helped that I had a map,” you helpfully mention. “Yes, and that helps you how exactly when you have to navigate back and forth from sea to sky?” the brown haired girl asks spitefully, leering at you whenever possible. “My sense of direction is horrible,” you say, shrugging. “So, back to my original question. Where am I?”“You're in Lymarck, traveler. Welcome to our humble estate. It's been a while since our last friendly visitor.” The white haired girl stands up, curtseying. “I'm Lillian, the current Deity of Lymarck.” “Well met. I'm Vala. And she?” you point to her brown-haired friend. “Don't point at me,” she lashes out. “She is Arden. Also the current Deity of Lymarck.” Lillian gives Arden a shy smile of acknowledgment. “Oh, oka–” Wait, wait, wait. “...Pardon?”“We're both Deities of Lymarck,” she clarifies.“You can do that?” you question her, almost jumping out of your chair. “I don't see why not,” Arden sneers. “Two's stronger than one.” You pause, staring riiiight at her. “...Two's stronger than one,” she mutters again, visibly frustrated. She clenches the top of the chair and turns away. Just in time, Sandra joins the party. “I don't think I'll ever get used to that, Vala.” “This is Sandra.” you introduce her. “My esteemed vassal.” “Nice to meet you, Sandra,” Lillian bows. “I'm Lillian.”“N-Nice to meet you too,” Sandra stutters.“I'm Arden. A pleasure, Sandra.” “Ah, err, yeah...” your vassal mumbles. “Pleasure to meet you.” Now that introductions are over with.>Ask away
>>35963949If they're both deities, then why didn't we get BP for beating them?
>>35963949Why is your magic weaker than my piss?
>>35963949Anything I can do to help out around here? Wanna be allies?
>>35963497...huh.Well, they're not mortals. Uhhhh... This is awkward...>>35963949How's deiting? Everything going alright?
>>35963949"Wanna help me fill in all these spots on the map that just say 'unknown'? I'd really appreciate it."
>>35964037>beating them>swats away bolt with hand
>>35964037That wasn't really a fight, also what >>35964038 said
>>35964037Because their magic is weaker than our piss.
>>35964087they're both dieties so .5 plus .5 equals 1!!
>>35964038They probably didn't spec into magic. I bet it's all in intuition.
>>35964084It's a good thing they didn't hear me insult them.>>35963949You guys, err, seem like you have a lot of problems with Arkad. Like frankly, I don't see how you would be able to repel them.
>>35964125Then why attack us with magic then
>>35963949>Has the civil war affected Lymarck?>Are you guys with the Arkad Insurrexica too?>So you know Minerva?>>35964085
>>35964199If you have 0 or 1 in both strength and magic, and the guy is a distance away, do you throw magic at him or do you run up and punch?
Do you guys really want to see their stats? No roll necessary.>Y>N
>>35964256y might as well.
>>35964234Well if you are swole like a god you punch then in the face>>35964256Yes
>>35964256>>Nit feels a little disrespectful
>>35964256yIt'll be nice to see and gauge our own progress.
>>35964286Pity is the greatest disrespect
>>35964271>Well if you are swole like a god you punch then in the faceThe point is that they aren't swole. They aren't magic swole either. The only differentiating factor to determine method of attack was distance.
>>35964349Hope youv'e got a high enough influence and wish int to smite like a boss.
>>35964338That is also true. I'd rather flat out ask them, though.
>>35964390>Hey what are your stats?

>>35964442>Negative strengthIt would be a woman
>Ask away“I don't mean to be rude, but...” you sheepishly grin. “You guys are kinda weak for deities.” “I'm afraid we don't have many followers because we protect such a small village,” Lillian says abashedly.“I'll kick your ass,Vala.” Arden deadpans. Sandra, right on cue, adds, “Before you consider that... I'm going to assume that Arkad is somewhere nearby. Did you see a bright flash last evening?” Arden nods. “Oh, the bright light that broke the day cycle. It's called an aurora, right?”Sandra delivers her lines perfectly. “...No, that was just him.” Lillian gasps, covering her mouth with her hand. Arden, suddenly unable to function properly, buckles over. “WHAT.” “Hello, I'm Vala, Deity of Eire. Nice to meet you.” You wave to Arden. “Before you get all speechless, I have a couple of more questions to ask.” She sputters out incoherent words, so Lillian steps forward. “Yes?” “Has the civil war affected Lymarck?” She tilts her head. “Civil war?” “Err, does the nation Insurrexica– wait, Insurrexio, sound familiar?” She hmms. “I'm afraid I don't know anything about an Insurrexica or Insurrexio.” “And Minerva?” you add, grasping at straws.“I don't know,” she leans forward, putting her hands over yours. “I'm sorry I wasn't of help.” “It's fine,” you dismiss the issue. So they're not interconnected. Arkad's shaping up to be a monster, isn't it? A bell chimes throughout the village. “And that is?” Sandra asks. Lillian lowers her head. “Arkad's vanguard is returning?” “So what will you do?” you question the deities. Arden glowers. “Obviously, we fight.” >Do them a favor. You're not a fan of an unfair fight.>Stay back. See how they handle themselves in combat.>
>>35964894>Do them a favor. You're not a fan of an unfair fight.inB4 we run into Arya again
>>35964894>Do them a favor. You're not a fan of an unfair fight.
>>35964894>Sandra, do you want(wish) to help them?>Do you guys want us to help?If not, we can take advantage this and go check out the Arkad side while they fight. This also benefits Lymarck if we share information.
>>35964894>>Stay back. See how they handle themselves in combat.We should only really intervene if the army starts pillaging or something similar.
>>35964894>Do them a favor. You're not a fan of an unfair fight
>>35964894>>Do them a favor. You're not a fan of an unfair fight.
>>35964894Sit back at first, just watch, if it's obvious they're getting rekt we step in and level the paying field, not too directly but enough that they have a chance
>>35964952Changing my vote to >>35964957

“So we're in agreement, then. But let me do you a favor, as an apology for earlier.” You leave the cottage, already making your way towards the Arkadians. Arden is about to say something, but Lillian quickly slaps her hand over her friend's mouth, nodding sweetly. “You have our thanks, Vala.” Over the bridge is the vanguard, lined up in formation. “Mark!” shouts a man holding a flag with a red cross striking through the middle. “We respectfully ask that you submit your village to the greater need of Arkad!”“And if we respectfully decline?” hollers Sandra. “Then we will respectfully seize it!” the man yells back. “Seize if you must,” you declare. “If you are able to.” “Have at you, then!” The archers release a volley of arrows. The amount of arrows flying down is quite meager – they didn't bring a lot of troops. Then again, they were probably not expecting a fight. You throw your hand down, a clap of air smashing the arrows into bits mid-air. After your fight with Anya, you feel oddly prepared for this skirmish, if you can even call it that.But their soldiers are advancing steadily. Some get hit by the broken arrows, which you find amusing. >You could allow yourself to show off a little. >Quick and simple. Gust them away.>Or something divine? (Current BP: 31/75)>

>>35966011I find this highly probable. Also, that we'll form and lead a pantheon.
>>35966115Funny thing Vala remains chill the entire time, but whenever he offers to help with something, the entire pantheon panics. He never draws the connection.
>>35966177So he is kinda an absent minded Zeus?
>>35966201A less horny absent minded Zeus. Of course this is still limited predictions and random chatter.
>>35966201But nicer. Also, knowing /tg/ substantially less lusty.
>>35966218>>35966219True, Greek gods seem to be more of a combination of both /d/ and /b/
>>35966297Yup, sadly I do believe the Qm is going to throw us a curveball, or several so who knows how this will really turn out?
>>35966297Yeah, though mind you this is only by comparison. Knowing /tg/ he'll probably have an active romantic life
You're not particularly in the mood to be fighting. You'd much rather be spending your time doing something else. But it's always Arkad and their conquests, yadda yadda. Frankly, you're getting a little tired of this! The winds are calm. And you're rather calm.Sandra frets, grabbing the hands of both Arden and Lillian. “Whuh!? What's going on–”Sandra drags them towards you, quieting Arden. “Is something the matter, Sandra?” Lillian inquires.Your vassal sports an uneasy grimace. “I've learned something the last day or so. When in doubt, hide behind Vala.” The leaves rustle. You breathe in. And then you breathe out. A sharp whistle can be heard, if only for a few seconds. As it fades away, a quick rush of air screams towards the hapless soldiers, devouring the arrows still in the ear, ripping away trees from their roots, and utterly ripping their armor off of their backs, sending an assortment of nature and equipment flying into aetherspace. There used to be a field lush with trees here. Now it's just uprooted grass and scattered soldiers running around practically naked.
>>35966423Well considering he is so far the only male deity or demi-deity......
>>35966492Oh. My god. That is the best mental image.We'd better fucking fix their backyard. I don't wanna be 'that douche'
>>35966492Sandra has a look of disappointment on her face. One that screams: “You know what you did and you should be ashamed of yourself.” You have no regrets. Defiantly, you tell your vassal, “I helped.” Lillian's face is that of complete awe and joy. She shakes Arden gleefully, who's too busy looking down at the ground bashfully. >Belief Points gained! +15(x2)+31 = 61/75 BP. “Vala, you're incredible!” Lillian grabs your hands, shaking them up and down frantically. “Would you join our religion? Or maybe that's too arrogant. Would you allow these two deities of modest backgrounds join?” “I guess?”Arden is completely horrified. “Lillian!”“It's not like we can do this by ourselves anymore,” she gripes. “We're Lymarck's deities, right? We have to save Lymarck. We don't have a lot of options right now.” “I refuse,” she abruptly turns to face you, sighing. “And it's not because of some petty grudge. I admit, we may have got off on the front foot, but let me be clear. I am one of Lymarck's deities. I protect its people. I will remain independent, no matter how weak that makes me. What is being a god, if it means you can't rely on your followers?” “So what if you can't?” In a quieter voice, Lillian adds, “It's better than being weak enough for Lymarck to fall.”>Let Lillian join. >Don't let Lillian join.>Other
>>35966508Maybe that is where the power difference is from
>>35966554>Let Lillian join.
>>35966554If you want to join you can, I have no objections whatsoever. But I do think you two would work together in accord far better separately. Still it's your call.
>>35966508>only male deityWhat about that lightning guy?
>>35966603supportan...Also get Sandra's opinion?
>>35966611Not sure if he was a deity or just a strong mage.
>>35966649He said he was the deity.
>>35966554>Let Lillian join."Well, you don't have to abandon your people. I mean, I'd rather any patheon be more of a coalition of allies than some sort of monolithic empire. No point of beating up Arkad only to replace them after all."
>>35966664Yes, We shall form fantasy NATO. We'll be the Americans.
>>35966603Voting for this
>>35966664This >>35966664Arkad is being rather aggressive and I think working together as friends and equals is better then being some monolithic empire.We all want to protect our homes, friends, followers and there freedom.
>>35966664>>35966603Tied between these two votes.You will not accrue any BP whatsoever if you choose to be a "coalition"
>>35966863>You will not accrue any BP whatsoever if you choose to be a "coalition"Elaborate.
>>35966554>>Let Lillian join."just so long as you try and help"
>>35966875You gain benefits from voluntary conversion.
>>35966863...how does the mortal's power structure relate to ours?
>>35966908Okay, then I guess we just accept her then.
>>35966863ah So we won't gain BP from this action if we form a Coalition with them, but we will if they choose to convert? I'm fine with that.
>>35966928If you choose to have a coalition, you are allies. You are not gaining followers. You are also not acquiring a "branch deity" so to speak.
>>35966554Let her join.
>>35966988I was actually invisioning a system sorta similar to Greece though. Just because the Persains were fucking around didn't mean that when the greeks united to fight them they suddenly became a single empire. At the same time, just because Athena was the patron diety of Athens doesn't mean that Zeus wasn't also the King of the Gods, but the people of Athens didn't have to listen to the inhabitants of Olympus.
>>35967085For the sake of mechanics and clarity, I have to stick with an absolute choice between Coalition and Conversion. Sorry 'bout that.Anyhow. Called.
>>35967147What was the result?
>>35967428That's somewhat excessive, and I'm the guy who got shot down.
>>35967428>QM states that this one time he has to restrict the options>Faggot anon ragesBye anon, we wont miss you

>>35967576Oh get back to writing.Otherwise you won't get to leave the cage tonight.captcha: tasty icyberg.We should go to the arctic and make some shaved ice. I bet we could end this war with that.
>>35967674Don't tell me what to do.Their eyes fall on you. Apparently, it's now your responsibility. “If you want to join, then you are free to do so. I have no objections whatsoever.” Turning to Lillian, you pat her on the shoulder. “But, my personal opinion is that you two work far better together than separately. Ultimately, it's your call.” She silently pleads to Arden with her eyes, but the brown-haired deity refuses to match her gaze. Despite this, Lillian reaches over to pull her friend into a gentle embrace. Arden stiffly returns it. Returning to your side, she nods firmly. “I, Lillian, Deity of Lymarck, wish to join you.”>Belief Points earned! +50(x2)+61 = 161 / 75+25 = 161/100 BP.>Specialization unlocked! Valor: +10 to ALL rolls when defending an ally with weaker proficiencies.>Lilian's profiency has increased!>Miracles (innate) 2 → 3You sigh. “We have a lot to do, Lillian. We're still currently investigating the matter with Arkad and its rebels.” “I may not be strong, but I'll do my best to help.”“So that's that, huh?” Arden sits down on the chair, resting her elbows on the table. “You're just going to up and leave Lymarck?” “No.” Lillian responds, resolve in her voice. “I intend to come back and save Lymarck.” “I'll save Lymarck before you can even think about it,” Arden proclaims. “You'll see.” They bid each other a silent farewell. “...Arden,” your new deity breathes, “that idiot.” Sandra stays silent for the matter, pulling Lillian into a hug.Crossing the bridge, you faintly recall that you should be entering Arkad's territory. Damn Nina's crewman for taking your map. Or maybe you handed it to him. Damn yourself. Arkad should be to the left, and the rebels should be to the right... right?Right.>Investigate Arkad>Investigate the rebels
>>35967684>>Investigate the rebelsTalk to them first, make contact with the hug monster if you can. Find out what is happening and happened in the past.Nice that Lilian did get a boost to miracles too.

>>35967684do we have enough BP to do some nation-raising, or is Lymarck even bigger than the rebel territory?
>>35967894We'd need adan's consent most likely.
>>35967894You do. Lymarck is much smaller.
>>35967966I really want to raise SOME landmass, just to see how effective it is. Can we ask for permission?But, looking at that picture...is Arkad bottlenecked trying to get to Avalon? Raising Lymarck would destroy any chances of a land invasion and turn that war into a naval one.
>>35967966Sweet. Let's do that then.
>>35968009Lymarck isn't the land that separates Arkad from Avalon. Lymarck is the dot on that land..
Are there other deities on the Ffion Isles?
>>35968051oh. That explains the comparatively small number of forces sent to take it.Let's raise the whole land bridge anyway.
Why are people so obsessed with making floating islands? That creates a lot more issues than it solves. Also let's go talk to the rebels, the citizens first then the deity.
>>35968064One (allegedly) before you usurped the religion. No deities showed up to defend the church when you dismantled it into a temple.
>>35968090see >>35968009you can't really say obsessed when we haven't even done it yet.
>>35967966I prefer we don't.
>>35968102What abilities can we buy with the BP?
>>35968222XX for Divine Miracle>Divine Miracles will allow you defy the physical plane and create miracles of a higher caliber>Eligible Specializations: Magic / Influence>MAGIC: Shield of Eire – Any lower tier magic is instantly deflected. Only works if they initiated first. Does not work when you are fighting them head on, or if the magic is higher tier.>MAGIC: Fast Cast – +20 to magic roll when activated (can only use once per thread)>INFLUENCE: Valera – Any Influence traits now affected deities.These are potential options you have previously seen. This is not a prompt to buy them yet.
>>35968356>INFLUENCE: Valera – Any Influence traits now affected deities.This mean that our posative influence traits also pass benefits to our associated deities also?
>>35968356>INFLUENCE: Valera – Any Influence traits now affected deities.
>>35968430>>35968453These are potential options you have previously seen. This is not a prompt to buy them yet.
>>35968430I really need to update this to clarify. Influence>Your proficiency in Influence will affect how easily you can acquisition Belief Points. It also plays a factor in voluntary conversion to your belief and passive follower gain in your area.meaning voluntary conversion and BP is affected.
“First, we're going to investigate Arkad. We know enough about the insurgents.”“We do?” asks Sandra. “I do, at least.” You point to her. “You passed out.” She elbows your side, frustrated. “It's not my fault that dimension-warping makes me unnaturally dizzy!” “Can't help it! That's the only way we can get here in the first place,” you smugly chant, dodging her jabs.Lillian smiles. “I'm glad you two get along.” “Sure. A deity and vassal have to get along. That's just fact,” you point out the obvious. “Don't think she meant it by religious hierarchy, Vala.” “On what other basis would you even use?” you ask. “If you need to ask, then it doesn't matter,” Sandra states, matter-of-fact. “Humans,” you shrug.“But Lillian's a god.” Oh. You manage to get into one of the cities of Arkad without encountering any troops. Seems like they're gone for now. The roads are bustling with activity, far more busy than any street in Ffion. You hear the gossiping and chattering of the crowd. One voice in particular stands out.Ahaha, can't be possible. Because what are the odds of that happening?“Anya, do you really not know what Halcyon is trying to do?” “Of course I do. Do you think of me as a fool?” >Now would be a great time to run and hide.>Keep eavesdropping>Show up in front of her
>>35968571>>Now would be a great time to run and hide.while more info would be nice, provoking a fight on her home turf is not.
>>35968571I'm so tempted to just show up in front of her.>Keep eavesdropping
>>35968571>Keep eavesdroppingOur 0 strength will allow us to blend in perfectly and escape if found out!
>>35968571>new development. Worth the risk>Keep eavesdropping
>>35968571>Show up in front of herSince no ambassadors have been sent to Ffion and we lack any of our own, I have personally arrived to open relations with Arkad.Totally not trolling.
>>35968571>Now would be a great time to run and hide.This sounds like a good idea
>>35968571>Show up in front of herProffer hand to shake"I feel like we've met before. Do I know you?
Looks like you're eavesdropping!Roll 1d100.Pic related, it's what you would've done to Lillian and Sandra during the escape

>>35968873>>35968882The dice gods are benevolent to benevolent gods
>>35968970I think he's mad guys....
>>35968970you should know that best of 3d100 averages at 75.5....although I have no idea how balanced /tg/ dice are.
>>35969081I don't think you guys have lost a roll yet. Excluding my thread one fumble.
>>35969120We're good at being a god.
>>35969120Are you having fun?If yes, I see no problem with that
>>35969120Like I keep saying Vala's domain is luck.
>>35969081Does that factor in 1s overriding other rolls?
“Va–” You pull Sandra and Lillian close, effectively shutting them up. You hold your breath, straining to hear the conversation. “...And you're saying that they won't just kill each and every last one of those rebels?”“Of course not.” You know she's scowling. A really mean one, too. “Unlike those fools, we have honor. We don't retreat and leave our men for dead.” “Oh, come on now!” another voice barks. “Do you really think that “justice will save all” bullshit is the plan here? They're going to be massacred. Have a fuckin' heart!” “You think I like killing everyone? Hearing their cries for mercy? No.” You hear fists slam on a hard surface. “If we overpower Insurrexio in one fell swoop, then there will be less casualties on both sides. Good for everyone.”“Anya. Listen to me.” A pause. “What if we're wrong?” A dull thwack echoes. “I won't allow ourselves to be wrong.” A door slams. You can barely hear them anymore. Almost as if they were – Coming.Straight.At you.You push Sandra and Lillian away before attempting your own getaway, but the door bangs open, with Anya slamming a man into the wall before storming off. She didn't notice you, despite a few inches from crashing into you. A mask clatters to the floor. Very stiffly, you pick it up, handing it to the fallen man.“Thank you,” the man says, rubbing his neck. “You know how deities are.” “Yeah, of course. Deities.”It's the same voice. He has the same voice. He gives you a strange look, tapping the sword on his belt. Then, he smiles. In a rather heartfelt way. “Hey,” Sandra pulls on your collar, yanking you back. “I demand an explanation. Now.” Lillian's just blushing in the corner while you're being pulled around the street. You make eye contact with the man with the sword. “Blessed be you,” he says, disappearing into the crowd.
Aaaaaaand we're done for today, at least for the plot. Here's some meta. Spend your BP.XX (min. 50) for Divine Miracle>Divine Miracles will allow you defy the physical plane and create miracles of a higher caliber than any miracle below 50 BP. The amount of BP you spend is proportional to the miracle you can create.150 BP for Specialization>Eligible Specializations: Magic / Influence>MAGIC: Shield of Eire – Any lower tier magic is instantly deflected. Only works if they initiated first. Does not work when you are fighting them head on, or if the magic is higher tier.>MAGIC: Fast Cast – +20 to magic roll when activated (can only use once per thread)>INFLUENCE: Valera –Your Influence proficiency will now affect voluntary conversion rate and BP acquisition for deities.>Spend 150 BP to add (+2) to Lillian's proficiencies.Current:Miracles (innate): 3Magics – 2Wish Intuition – 3Strength – (--1)Influence – 1/2
>>35969689how much BP do we have now?
>>35969689>INFLUENCE: Valera –Your Influence proficiency will now affect voluntary conversion rate and BP acquisition for deities.Need this then we can focus on upping Lillian and ourselves.
>>35969689I'd like to use a greater miracle to institute a Golden Age in the floating isles.
>>35969689>INFLUENCE: Valera –Your Influence proficiency will now affect voluntary conversion rate and BP acquisition for deities.
>>35969689>Spend 150 BP to add (+2) to Lillian's proficiencies.+2 MagicALL THE MAGIC
>>35969689Can we deify Sandra?
>>35969779>making Vala no. 2>negative strengthu shitter
>>35969737For those who don't know what I mean by this, I want to imbue our people with a sense of greatness that lets them take giant leaps forwards, coupled with a collective common sense that keeps things from going horribly wrong.In short, really good shit will appear in the floating isles and happen for no apparent reason or influence that we can notice, even if it does originate from us as the primary inspiration.
>>35969796No, for many reasons.
>>35969737>>35969811It was a good idea yesterday, it's still a good idea today
>>35969811Do we even have enough clout for that?
>>35969811So, what, we put 150 into Divine miracle?
>>35969813Any idea when the next thread will be?>>35969811Nah. Maybe if we got a bitching airship though.
>>35969889Ok, I'm cool with that
>>35969689Could we spend 75 BP (or 80 if you want to overcharge us) to add +1 to Lillian's proficiencies? Not sure I want to start next thread deep in enemy territory with only 11 BP.
>>35969886Obviously, a method of travel to and from the floating isles would kick-start this golden age and be first on the list.
>>35969886Tentatively, Thursday at 5-6 PM EST. I'm not sure, because I have an exam to take the same day. If not, expect one Saturday. As always, follow me on Twotres @nanolitre>>35969903All or nothing. Seems like Valera's winning, though. I'll call soon. >>35969910>>35969886>>35969811Having a "Golden Age" will not necessarily make you an airship. Could be possible, but remember that a lot of the benefits will happen offscreen and not directly to Vala, if at all. Also, any suggestions? Looking specifically for critiques or complaints you have to improve the Quest.
>>35969558>“You think I like killing everyone? Hearing their cries for mercy? No.”After the "Don't spare me next time" thing, that's a bit of a feelser.She feels like shit because Vala went and did the thing she thought she couldn't do - have mercy.
>>35969689>INFLUENCE: Valera –Your Influence proficiency will now affect voluntary conversion rate and BP acquisition for deities.
>>35970000Oh, I think some magic will happen. Mages from all over might come to study the island's random floatiness, after all.
>>35970000Are there going to be evil and more demonic looking deities or similar beings?
>>35970000I think at this point it's one person postin the same thing every five minutes.
>>35970000Are demons, angels, or other divine servants besides vassals a thing?
>>35969689>add (+2) to Lillian's proficiencies.+1 Magic+1 Strength (she needs to survive our general level of collateral damage)
>>35970131this as negative strength is never good.
>>35970044>>35970087>demons or demonic beingsMaybe.>divine servants besides vassalsVassals are inclusive of any and all divine servants. >angelsDepends on your definition of angel.Calling for Valera.
>>35970143Are their unaligned elemental beings out there?Are there any races other than humans and gods?What would a typical Archmagus' magic stat be?
>>35970143Are the new gods each loosely based off of a current sitting vassal?
>>35970180>unaligned elemental beingsI don't know what this is.>races other than humans and godsHumans are the dominant mortal race. >Archmagus' magic statThere are no archmages. If we're talking about deities and/or deity-blessed persons, then anything above a 4 is really good.
>>35970000Maybe set a limit for the number of rolls you're accepting so that we dont continue blow everything out of the water
>>35970263No. >>35970274Generally, I set it to three. Dropping the limit to two seems too wonky.
>>35967684>Specialization unlocked! Valor: +10 to ALL rolls when defending an ally with weaker proficiencies. Does this stack with different bonuses like magic skill?
>>35970351Yes. Go be a hero.
Who is best girl?
>>35970396Question, does Lillian have a shrine in Lymark and if not how much BP would it cost to have raised one before we left? Also, do we automatically detect when our territory is invaded by foreign deities or their mortal minions?
>>35970458Lillian does have a shrine in Lymarck. >do we automatically detect when our territory is invadedYep. Correlates to your Wish Intuition.>>35970403Wish Current a best girl
>>35970525She really is, though.
>>35969081Look at OWQ. For the longest time, our average high roll was below ten. On a d20, best of three. Then we got a maid...
So Valera now makes people believe in OTHER gods, those that we want them to?
