Snatched from the brunt of the wave, the young man faces an inhuman creature of humanoid form that strikes out his eye to deliver onto him the gift of magic by means of the followers.Praise be to Susej they say. These followers.Selfish in his means of survival, a young man rallies with these people for his own safety as the government seeks to keep the truth of the world under wraps, that magic exists and that people like the followers are throwing it into chaos.Sent on a mission to liberate people captured for conscription based on their awakening to magic, he journeys with others to meet with a woman planted for this very purpose, finding adversity on the way.Having left a trail all too easy to follow, he's been captured and taken to the very place he'd been looking to gain access, though not exactly on his own terms...Recently rescued by unknown allies, the young man takes on a new alias “Faust” to help him lay low.You are Asher Faust, welcome to Over(human)Limit S2
>>36149524 The museum is open for halloween, hastily yet expertly décor set up for the time. Cotton-spun cobwebs, decorate stone columns, the cold autumn wind blows the wispy hair of strawmen with ghoulish masks. Their eyes watch your party as they pass. Echo, who's insisted herself along gives them a little wave before running to the fore of the group, she's the first to buy a ticket, running inside with no one willing to call out for her to stop.“So, it's here?” Saph whispers, as she comes in close to you, her auburn bangs getting blown in her face every so often, forcing her to push the hair back.You touch the rail to the staircase as you walk up to the double glass doors of the entrance, “Yeah. Legna, my valkyrie, found it.”“The energy here is good, though we need to go down below the ground.”“There's an exhibit we can use for that.”As you buy your ticket, you notice Tony, eying other guests touring around inside. After entering, he says soft and low, “We'll need to get these people out, yes?”You shrug, pushing up the gaiter hiding your deformity, “We could pull a fire alarm, or I could start one.”“That'll call the fire department and complicate things if the Watch shows up.” Saph says as she quickens her pace and turning to walk backwards, “Best time for the Seelie is twilight. We can scout the area, then get some preliminary setup before we start anything.” She smiles, patting a bag slung over one of her slight shoulders, “We can split up and check out the exhibits while we're here, sound good?”Emilia slips her arm around yours, “I'm with him. What are we going to do about Echo though?”
>>36149534 Saph glances over her shoulder, Echo's running around already got her yelled at by some of the staff, “Echo... Will do whatever she does. She invited herself along, but I don't think she'll help too much with it.”“Hey guys!” Echo yells from down the main hall, waving at your group, “There's mummies!” Not even five seconds later, she's off running again with another guard yelling at her but doing nothing much else to stop her. Not like they could if it came down to it.“Hm. Mummies, eh?” Tony starts on after Echo. As usual something in that unerringly quiet and even tone of his rubs you the wrong way. Man gives you goosebumps, but you can't say that you don't owe him one. Sure as hell saved your ass from the mechs back at the fashion disaster.> Go to the underground adventure exhibit and wait.> Knock on a door, visit Dorothy.> Go see the Mummies with Echo and Tony.> Piss about in the lobby with Camille.> (Other)
>>36149561> Go see the Mummies with Echo and Tony.
>>36149561> Go see the Mummies with Echo and TonyAs if we wouldn't want to hang with Tony.
>>36149561We should look around for the dinosaur skull. Maybe Emilia could sense the power of Gaia in it and lead us there or something
>>36149693We found it already last time we came here.
>>36149718I was pretty sure the skull wasn't with the rest of the skeleton
>>36149767It wasn't. We still went and found the thing.
>Rage-beast is the only thing keeping us alive.Step aside, Devon. Asher's got the Edge now.
>>36150239It took you this long to figure out that he was getting kept alive by Biggie?
>>36150139But that's wrong anon
>>36150260It took me this long to realize how edgy that sounded.
>>36149561 You tag along after Tony, Emilia holding your arm as Saph heads to the Underground adventure to scope out the area. You soon find signs and a sudden change that let you know you're in the attractions devoted to Ancient Egypt. Modern artist's heiroglyphs decorate the quiet walls with loe lighting casting them into an almost mystical light.You find displays that show ancient egyptian bronze and gold, tarnished ritual daggers, urns with organs that have long been dessicated, and ornate sarcophagus of more than one mummy.In an especially dark-lit area there's an exposed mummy on display behind glass. You can see every bit of the old rags used to protect and dry the body, the empty eyesockets, the withered hands of a corpse that's seen the turn of the era.As you come up on the mummy, you see Echo squatting low in front of it, staring intently. Tony wanders around, taking slow and deliberate strolling steps, the tap of his dress shoes clicking upon the thematic stone floor.
>>36150559 You can hear Echo whispering, and nodding as though she's listening to something. As you peer into the astral to investigate, you see a person of light staring back at you, tall, proud, and peerless.Echo looks over to you, her astral foxtails twirling about in a flurry of faux-flame, a grinning fox mask upon her face, “Oh, hello Faust.”The silent Egyptian turns away, back to Echo, whispering something only for her before taking a seat back where the real-world corpse is. Squinting your eyes, you ponder at whether or not this entity is a shade. By the look? The understanding? No, it can't be... It's more like it's been anchored here to this world by the preserved body. Looking around at the room, it stands alight with the power of the glyphs, ancient sentries and familiars sitting at their masters' side, sneering, and shunning yet another desecration to the mummies' sleep.Emilia pulls at your arm, “I don't think they like us here.” She whispers just as Echo passes by.> Talk to the Egyptian specters.> Bow out and rendezvous with Saph.> Visit Dorothy.> (Other)
Sorry about the pacing, doing shit with my computer and recounting a fetching tale of a girl I met today that had Human teeth in a coinpurse.
>>36150697> Visit Dorothy.Are we visiting her for last minute advice on the portal or what?
>>36150745Yes, and to see if she's going to assist.
>>36150697> Talk to the Egyptian specters.I'm thinking talking to dorothy after that
>>36150759We still need to find the skull sometime if we want to use it right? I definitely don't remember finding it
>>36150697> Visit Dorothy.
>>36150697> Bow out and rendezvous with Saph.
>>36150812It won't take too long to locate it, not a major concern.
>>36150836So if we don't force it as a writein at some point, it's safe to assume it'll still happen?
>>36150862Yeah we're good he said we'd have the option to use it on his ask page
>>36150697> Talk to the Egyptian specters.
>>36150697> Visit Dorothy.Apologize (in a non-apologeic way) for petting Solace. I want that motherfucker to squirm at our new power over him.
>>36150727>Human teeth in a coinpurseOververse leaking into the real world again, Dran?
Oh god. I just realized that if we go see Dorothy, and Emilia comes with us, then Meli might just pop into the shop and start up on her "mai husbando! mai sistaruwaifu!" and make shit go sour before the portal even gets off the ground.
>>36151003>shit go sourI can see it now. Meli pops up in her new Faun form. Emilia realizes she is married to a deer-fucker. Glorious.
>>36151003Meli still needs to die
>>36151003Ten bucks says emilia drops asher and goes off to find someone who isn't fucking faeries behind her back
>>36151130Shit idea anon, our new fae allies would not appreciate that
>>36151130Anon just knock it off already. The goal of this quest isn't "piss off every single mythos in the astral".
>>36151189The emia needs to die, I canoy deal with one annoying waifu, two is far to much
>>36151204Sup drunk anon
>>36151204Angry drunk anon detected
>>36151199We are doing so well though
>>36151199Well if the goal was to become the most hated person among people and mythos we have a pretty good head start.
>>36151306Well, it does work pretty good for ascending, look at dragons.Emilia is our China
>>36151340>Emilia is our ChinaWe... make it rain on her?
>>36151363China's the only place with a positive view of dragons
>>36151378There's more than just China for that. Yeah, it's mostly still just Asia, but still.
>>36151378So does Japan.
>>36151405Rest of Asia is xix
>>36151427Guess that makes Meli our Japan
So, uh, Asher's sorta leaking sanity constantly. Purifying Biggie would fix that. I know SAN loss might sound interesting at first, but if I know Dran... well let's just say we don't want that to happen.
>>36151427Dragon's aren't necessarily evil creatures. They can be outright ambivalent at times. The whole 'kidnapped princess' legend? Who knows what sort of shit the dragon had to put up with before it did that.
>>36151500>Dragon's aren't necessarily evil creatures.Except in the legends where they're explicitly evil creatures.
>>36151477I'm all for purging that bad karma.
>>36151477I'm not going to vote to fix it, I know full well we will go right back to whiny asher if we do it now
>>36151524Actually we just wouldn't slowly lose our mind and all of our magic will work right again
>>36151524Yeah, I'm hoping for at least one more weeaboo action scene and a bit more SAN loss. We do need to fix it at some point though.
>>36151524It was already said that purifying Biggie would still be angry asher.
>>36151570I think he said it would be more like focused anger instead of all out rage.
>>36151570Do you seriously trust drans word at this point?
>>36151593Ten bucks says we go FULL hippy, refuse to eat meat, refuse to eat plants and go kill lumberjacks until we starve to death
>>36151602I trust him to fuck in some way no matter what we do. That's just the nature of the beast.I just know I don't want to get fucked with Dran's spiky SAN loss strapon again, because that thing sucks major asshole.
>>36151602Uh yeah. More than perpetually butthurt anons at least
>>36151634You mean everyone but your naive ass?
>>36151678I'm here to have fun, not to be angry. Chill man
Ok, let's see.http://strawpoll.me/2986877
>>36150697 With the exhibit feeling a great deal more crowded than before, you back out of the exhibit, leaving Tony to hang out with the specters. Man doesn't seem to mind the dead, but their scowling makes you feel just a bit laid out bare.Finding the nearest door, you give it three knocks and whisper the password for Dorothy's shop. Twisting the doorknob, you find that it's... stuck? After a few more tries, you soon give in only for the door to open by itself, Solace slinking out like furry liquid. With a blink, his golden eyes are set upon you.“Shop's closed today, Dorothy is taking a personal day.” The feline whispers through the ether, surprising Emilia.“Uh, there's a cat... And it just talked.” She puts a hand to her forehead to nurse her head through having her mind blown. “The world's really changing, isn't it?”“Solace, you are?”“Emilia.” You say, answering for her.“We're really talking to a cat,” She chuckles a bit, coming to terms with it all too quickly as she kneels down to pet him.“Do-” You begin, only to find that Solace is letting her pet him. The cat turns for a better spot, tail raised and purring.“I'm not on the job right now, so this is fine.” So Solace says.You start to reach down, only to find him give a warning swat with his claws. “Hey!”“I'm still angry about the other day.”“Hey, sorry man- cat. You know that wasn't my fault.”“Indeed, fault lies with your faerie lover, yes?”“Your, what?” Emilia stops mid-pet, slowly standing up as she stares at you, a smile dawning upon her face with a manner of disbelief.“Oh, oh hoh oh...” Solace's eyes bears the gleam of a persnickety old prospector that's just struck gold.
>>36151758 “Ah, I- Well...” You fumble over your words for this. Practice hasn't done shit to dispel the awkwardness that this conversation was going to be. Putting it off has been a matter of pretending that there isn't a problem and resolving to deal with it when it came.“We're, ah. Married.” You finally say, best to get that out of the way first. Her jaw drops loosely, “What?” Eyebrows raised in surprise and disbelief, she shakes her head, “Asher, I like you but, when was that decided?”“It was decided when I visited the faeries in the ether, and I was shanghaied into marrying one.-”“And?”“-And I negotiated for you to be added onto the marriage...”“Without talking to me about-”“-Because I l-” The words are caught in your throat, instead, you touch her arm, causing her to lock up. Sliding your hand down her arm to carry her fingers, you look into her eyes,“I didn't want some bullshit with the astral say that you and I can't be together, okay?” her own eyes search yours before finding a disarmed smile.“Okay.” She says, the anger and surprise draining from her at that. Her approval puts you more at ease, much to Solace's distaste. “But when were you planning on telling me?”Still holding her hand, “When I could introduce the two of you. She'll be coming through the portal. Her name is Melisandre. Meli wants to meet you too.”“Okay.” She nods again, tears coming to her eyes.“You alright?”She nods, “Yes... I just didn't know you cared so much.”Solace bounds off, grumbling about how the scene got too sappy for him. Cat must've wanted to see you get reamed. “Are you two coming or not?” He calls back.
>>36151789I love how easy Emilia is to sway. Meli is going to have no problem convincing her into a threesome, is she?
>>36151789Huh. That went better than I thought it would go.
>>36151894I think she just has a soft spot for asher, asher will have to openly agree with Meli to get her to do anything, probably, emilia might just be a pushover
>>36151901It was too easy and in my opinion.
>>36151932I think Emilia would be willing to do most anything for Asher as long as it's not ridiculously evil
>>36151953Maybe it was, but I'm willing to just write it off as Emilia being a bit of a nutter.I'd much rather deal with this than the alternative relationshit wangsting for multiple threads.
>>36151932That or she's planning a secret murder or castration. Might have some big plans down the way or Dran is throwing us a bone.
>>36151953Well, in the discussion thread we kinda reamed Dran about how he was always kicking our balls over things (like the marriage) and he got the message and has been making some of the larger complaints easier to handle, it seems. I, for one, approve of this. Emilia's always been open-minded (putting it lightly), and this isn't too far off for how she could react.
>>36151991You waifu is banging another dude, she says she still loves you and some other sappy shit, how do you respond?
>>36152026Emilia is queen of betas
>>36152026Well now, are we actually banging Meli?>Your Waifu is was raped by another dude and was forced into a shotgun wedding, but managed to include you in it. She says she still loves you, how do you respond?
>>36151953Remember just who Emilia is. She wants to see the good side of things. If the situation can be interpreted in a way that sounds nice, she'll interpret it that way.>>36152026I'd probably be kinda miffed, but if they claimed that they got roped into it because fairy nonsense and they did the best they could to not let it destroy what we had, I would at least put the anger on hold until I found out whether or not what they just said was bullshit.And Emilia's a lot more forgiving than I am anyway.
>>36152026"S-sorry I guess I overreacted. Did I do something wrong? Please don't leave me :("
>>36152081We got a handjob in the shower and we were rather cutesy couple like in the shop before
>Everyone rages about Dran's femdom fetish>He throws Emila, Queen of the Submissive Betas at us>"TOO EASY!!!"
>>36152124Welcome to reality, people don't like stupid extremes.
>>36152081Sounds way batter that way.
>>36152124Well as long as Asher doesn't get castrated I am totally cool with it.
>>36152155Are you mad that there's no relationship drama to deal with?
>>36152155Speak for yourself. Meli and Emilia are both right up my alley in terms of submissiveness.
>>36152155I like Queen of the Betas. She's easy to deal with, relatively enjoyable to be around, and useful in the fighty parts of the quest.
>>36152174I mad that she dropped it in three seconds flat, I'd at least want her to be colder towards us for a day or two.
>>36152155I'll only be mad if she is as much of a beta queen towards Meli, I don't do yuri, also two girls fighting for a guys attention is the best.
>>36152205She'd be fucking nuclear if she was still FaraEmilia.She's not FaraEmilia anymore, she's back to calm yoga and meditation Emilia. It'd honestly be kinda weird if she got super mad over it, because she has been shown to be more than capable of acting like she isn't mad about stuff if she thinks anger isn't something she needs to do.
>>36151789 “So I was thinking of using the Tyrannosaurus skeleton as a portal focus, just need to get the head from the backroom and-”“Wait.” Solace stops you as you explain your idea of a portal to him. “Let me get this straight, you want to use the fossilized bones of an oversized gecko as a medium focus to summon the Seelie Fae?”“That's what I just said you little shitter.”Echo giggles, playing with Solace's paws as he sits in her lap. It's a spectacle to see the old asshole of a cat letting someone play with him while he holds a serious conversation.“If you use something that powerful as a gate there's no telling what would happen even if you drew out runes to draw out faeries. With the inclusion of the ley line you might even pull out things from prehistory.”“Dorothy ever do anything like this?”“She's tapped into Ley lines before, but never for something as grand as a physical portal to and from Tir Na Nog. Look, use the fossil if you want, I'm just saying that there's likely to be some sort of interference from its origin.”“What would you suggest?”“Dorothy's the one that likes fairies.” Solace wiggles off Echo and licks his paws, “A children's toy or something might work. Or a living child if you're-”“Solace, no.” Saph snaps at him, the cat raises his head, flicking an ear as he stares back at her before returning to cleaning himself.“Alright. Well, you have a connection to fairies, why don't you use yourself as a conduit to open the gate?” The cat says to Saph, and she crosses her arms.“I'd rather we just plant a tree in the ley line. Asher, you brought a seed, right?”You nod, “Yeah, got an acorn, figured that'd work, Oak's a good wood. Got a sprig of mistletoe too.”“A mushroom ring would be better.” Solace interjects.
>>36152238 “I can't grow mushrooms.”“You're really not prepared for this, are you?”“Shut up.”> Use the Acorn, traditional Norse reveres it as do druids.> Use the Tyranno skeleton, what could go wrong?> Convince Saph.> (Other)
>>36152251CONDUIT TIMEI SMELL DOUBLE AWAKENING
>>36152251> Use the Acorn, traditional Norse reveres it as do druids.
>>36152265The conduit thing was about Saph, not Asher.Using himself would likely go horribly wrong because of Biggie.Also there's no way this is about to be a second awakening.
>>36152251Remind me why we brought saph again? This isour thing right? Why does she get a say at all
>>36152251>> Convince Saph. What IS Solace talking about anyway?I meant to extend that like the others.
>>36152230I'd like to see them get in a pitched argument.
>>36152251> Use the Acorn, traditional Norse reveres it as do druids.I don't think I want any dinosaurs running around
>>36152251>Use the acornCan we get museum samples of mushrooms to work with as well? Arrange those in a circle?
>>36152251> Use the Tyranno skeleton, what could go wrong?
>>36152288Because she can use her power to mimic summoning and act as a stand in for the purpose of the ritual. Emilia's here because she wants to be.Echo's here because Echo's Echo ECHO!
>>36152251Ask solace what would happiness enough of we were the focus. It's a quick question
>>36152321We didn't vote because?
>>36152251> Use the Tyranno skeleton, what could go wrong?Rule of cool time?
>>36152306That is actually a good fucking idea.>>36152296 Jurassic Faepocalypse.
>>36152345Question is, would they be loyal to asher?
>>36152306Seconding using museum samples
>>36152334Because NPCs have some degree of agency on their own? Because Asher has no reason to turn her down on this?
>>36152251Dran, I want to use the T-rex skeleton soooo bad. Rule of Cool tells me it will be great. But, my trap-sense is going off the charts here, so I don't think I can pick it.
>>36152306This but with Dino bones as well, I want dem fae dinos
>> Use the Acorn, traditional Norse reveres it as do druids. Add in mushroom samples for a faerie ring.>> Use the Tyranno skeleton, what could go wrong?>> Convince Saph. What IS her connection to the fae anyway?I actually want to give you guys like 15 minutes talk time over this.Pretty important decision and shit.
>>36152306Seconding this with the acorn.
>>36152408Acorn + Mushroom ftw
>>361524081: Norsefied fae2: FUCKING DINOSAURS RUN3: Get bitched at by saph for prying
>>36152381It's fucked up. I felt the same way about Asmadei, fallen angel cool as fuck, but the entire thing just seemed like such a massive trap that I couldn't bring myself to vote for it.Turned out that the right choice was just surfing the rule of cool wave, but you never fucking know with this stuff. The dino stuff could fuck us over horribly. The portal itself being a mobile plant dragon thing could be bad, and if it spawns dinos into the world, then they might just go around randomly killing people. I don't think we could get away with that if it comes on the heels of us turning Millennium Park into magic Chernobyl.
>>36152408What would the power boost from the skull even do for the portal besides let dinos through?
>>36152408>>> Use the Acorn, traditional Norse reveres it as do druids. Add in mushroom samples for a faerie ring.
>>36152408We're in a mueseum, ten bucks says we can find an Old ass child's toy or something
>>36152408>> Use the Acorn, traditional Norse reveres it as do druids. Add in mushroom samples for a faerie ring.>> Use the Tyranno skeleton, what could go wrong?>> Convince Saph. What IS her connection to the fae anyway?Why not do everything? Fuck it.
>>36152408Legna have anything (spells, insight, etc) to contribute on the Norse end of things if we use the acorn?
>>36152408Asher knows about mythos right? Can we use his knowledge to get a list of shit that might work? Can we combine shit?
Guys, remember. Overwatch is going to show up after we finish this thing. Using Saph will make that fight that little bit harder and will distract Marcus, making it so we can't just let him deal with Belila.
>>36152408I don't want Saph to do it but I do want to know her connection to the fae
>>36152450It would be a powerful focus to increase the portal's stability.And they'd be hybrid Seelie Dino Fae.>>36152495A tree or a ring would work here. Aside from that, making the portal out in the lake would've worked too since that's another way to get to TNN.>>36152508There's going to be a very clear grace period. It's not going to be right away in the least.
>>36152508Fuck I forgot that, we could go with t-Rex skull to hit them with whatever monstrosity we pull out. If we're lucky it's a dragon that will ache the bones to death with its fire breath being powered by a fucking leyline
>>36152536Would only the dinosaurs be modified or will the current fae also become more dinosaur-like?
>>36152536Would you allow us to combine those two?I'd back the hell out of Nordic Seelie Dino Fae
>>36152577Dinosaurs are the most honorable warriors
>>36152536>And they'd be hybrid Seelie Dino Fae.>Meli as a Faun... dinosaur... thing....
>>36152595>I am no mere deer fucker
>>36152589Nordic dinosaurs are even more honourable
>>36152536Any chance we could use it as a summoning focus instead? Like if we turned the skull into a gemstone via Alchemy.>>36152577>>36152589Can't tell if amazing or ridiculous.
>>36152536So, we are going to make a sacrafice of blood right? I feel the spilling of blood will be necessary to break a hole through the universe
>>36152480A Tyranno skull with an oak tree growing through it, surrounded by mushrooms, norse/druidic glyphs, and Saphs aid.
>>36152663What the fuck
>>36152571What are you summoning?Faeries.What's the focus?A fossilized Dinosaur.WHAT ARE YOU SUMMONING.Faeries.WHAT IS THE MODIFYING FACTORA TREX SKELETON
>>36152577Too much of a good thing could be bad
>>36152663Please Dran. I would love the shit out of doing that.
>>36152663I was thinking that it'd turn into more of a planty Trex/tree dragon thing with the portal in its mouth and the mushrooms growing out of its back.
>>36152663>overwatch walks in on this abomination
>>36152685Shit man sorry I asked.
>>36152713How big is a Trex skull anyway.
>>36152686I'm willing to take that risk considering every option we have has a great deal of risk. Hell this entire plan is insanely risky
>>36152685So >>36152663Would lead to the creation of some abomination faeries that seek the sweet embrace of death upon entering our world. Neat
To be honest I don't really want a dinosaur deer wife
>>36152726I've been saying Jurassic Fae, Not Faerie Dinos.
I'm still hoping for a double awakening, being right next to a portal to tnn while it's being formed is gonna get us slammed with all sorts of energies as it stabilizesThe question isBone or vein
>>36152764So any response on whether we can combine the skull and acorn?
>>36152765Honestly bone would be for the best, we get blasted the shit out of REALLY often, being able to eat that would be nice, plus bones can do body modding easier, gotta get full groot
>>36152765I don't think it's happening, but Vein hands down. Nerve has best burst casting, Vein has best sustained casting. Vein's also really good for the army-maker builds.
>>36152765Eh veins can cast internally infinitely I feel like that'd be the most powerful since we are going full alchemists
>>36152782Too much variety and not enough focus. You don't want to summon a new great old one or anything, would be quest end as it destroys Asher's mind and soul.
>>36152765It's either "WIZARD!" or "BATTLE MAGE!"That's the real options
>>36152748>Jurassic FaeSomething like this?
>>36152817Gotta admit, that'd be a more dramatic end to this quest than Omar got.
>>36152817Well that's disappointing. Thanks dranIll stick with acorn then
>>36152817>too much varietyLiterally two things, earth and nature, fossil and seed. They seem like they would work together nicely
>>36152765Bones.You guys have no idea what a proper knowledge of anatomy can allow for with a bone. Especially with a powerful Nerve's mana pool.
>>36152866>proper knowledge of anatomy>AsherAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>36152860Use the highly magic pumped Dino bones to feed the growth of a SUPER strong oak tree pumped full of enchantments, then use that as a focus?
>>36152831Something like that.We're going Dat Acorn and Faerie ring. It's been ahead, and it's most in character.>>36152860The Oak represent Norse. The Ring represents Fae.The bones represent Prehistoric monsters.It'd summon a great old... Nah, it'd still kill ya. Then fly off and terrorize the world.
>>36152875We can study, dran said ashers been too busy being a hippy to bother doing it
>>36152860That was what I figured, but if dran isn't going to going to go for it then I guess he wont
>>36152884>>36152896This could work right? A strong grown oak would be a better focus than an acorn wouldn't it?
>>36152866Or we could just make the new bodies using Alchemy/Flora and then do the Vein thing that lets us transfer our soul between them.Vein is just way better when it comes to a 2nd class with the spells Asher already has.
>>36152896>no option to say fuck it, strip it all of its adtral significance and use the pure energy as a focusDo you even alchemist?
>>36152954>dat Camille dick10/10
>>36152954Oh Lawd. Looks like we have the new OP art for Dran!
>>36152954Why does marcus have three dicks?
>>36152954I fucking love it
>>36153009I think that's supposed to be Echo.Anon's forgetting that she's only a foxgirl in the astral.
>>36153009I'm pretty sure that's Echo.>>36152954I'd like to think that Wallie would be all "NOPE."
>>36153022I AIN'T PAID ENUF TO FIGHT TREETHULU, FUCK ALL THIS SHIT.
>>36153009Thats echo and her tails.Marcus is the smoking one.Didn't have the time or patience to give everyone the detail I gave Wallie and the tree.
>>36153021Nah, I just figured the ears were demon horns, I always imagine marcus with demon horns
>>36152903That's not what would happen though. With Asher's current spells, disposition, knowledge, and the way Bone mana processing works, he'd almost certainly end up instead becoming some kind of air/water/earth/fire/plant hybrid elemental thing.
>>36152939Improve motor neurons and nervous system efficiency. Enchance circulatory system to withstand high pressure, and reinforce heart to be capable of extreme bouts of pressure. Increase tendon strength and bone density to the point of not breaking under the weight of hyper-dense musculature. Make skin frictionless and durable enough to not tear from any movements made by the body. Perfect chest cavity so that all the bits are held securely in place, as opposed to just sloshing about in a semi-stable mass. Make brain held in place right in the skull to prevent whiplash. Fine tune spinal cord-based reflexes.In a few weeks, we could make the world go slow-mo at will.
>>36153101>nerves with bone powersAbsolute nope teir.Bones should never cast, that shit would be horrifying. Everything ever would die once 100% over rage was hit
>>36153101Or pull off all the same stuff by making new bodies with Alchemy+Flora and soul-hopping between then as a Vein, done for cheaper because it wouldn't require a slew of Bone shifting and enhancement spells.Then the extra points saved could go into the Vein internal enchantments, which have infinite cast time, so we've got the monster body, magically enhanced, and it doesn't cause us and Ache/Burn.
>>36153150And then you get boned to death by belila
>>36153150I feel as though you think body hopping is easy
>>36153164Vein enchantments are not able to be consumed by Bones.And they can direct cast at range. Are you saying you don't like the sound of being able to pull off Alchemic disintegration of a person without touching them?
>>36153196Are you saying you don't want to be bone-nerve masterace?
>>36153285That's exactly what I'm saying. Bone-Nerve isn't nearly as good for Asher as Vein-Nerve is.
>>36153309That's objectively wrong
>>36153314You're objectively wrong anon
>>36153314No it isn't.
>>36153325No you are
>>36153314Veins are objectively the strongestNerve+Vein makes the objectively strongest pairingBut nerve+bone would make the best pairing for appealing to drans rule of cool
>>36153333But what am I?
>>36153369A qm who should be writing
>>36152251 Deciding on the Acorn, you give the thing a charge and bury it beneath the ground. With a pass of magic, you lay the ground flat as Solace waltz's up to begin drawing runes. For a lack of thumbs, the cat scrawls complicated runes at a terrifying speed with nothing but his claws scratching right through the stone.As you set up the circle, a guard comes around to which everyone present turns to look at them. The guard looks down at the cat drawing, you with your eyes shining. They start to call alarm when a cluster of shadows wraps around their mouth and pulls them to the ground, stifling any noise from them.Tony walks up to the man, squats down over their subdued form, puts a finger to his lips and says, “Shhh. We need quiet in this exhibit.”With a wave, the shadows drag the man up against the wall, driving them into it headfirst, rendering them unconscious.Echo hops in, “I found mushroo-”“Shhh.” Tony says again with a smirking look on his face, “Quiet in the exhibit.” Camille watches you work and begins to assist with the scrawling of runes, creating floating paint with the same inscriptions that Solace is making upon the ground. Now and then, the cat corrects her and she fixes them. Eventually she says, “We'll see just how this goes. Asher, I'm helping you this once to repay what I owe you. After that...”“I get it. If you want to return to Overwatch, Saph said that's fine.” You shrug, “As for me, I'm stuck here because they don't want my stupid ass running wild.”“Aren't they letting you already?”“Already on strike two.” You reply. Saph watches you from across the room, supervising everything.“So, what's your connection with the fae anyway?”Saph straightens up abruptly, “I'm going to get people out of here, gently. Do what you need to.” She heads off without answering the question.“Huh, bitch.”
>>36153388 “Don't say that.” Emilia speaks up, “She doesn't bug you about your past, you know.”“Oh yeah, aside from the whole thing with the followers, right?”Camille clears her throat, “What made you want to join them in the first place? They're freaking insane.”“Overwatch got to ya.” You smirk back at her. She rolls her eyes, “Hey, don't give me that. As for me, the Followers just came to me at a fucking swell time in my life where everything I'd known for the last eight goddamn years got taken by the ocean.” You roll your shoulders, “Then they say, 'Hey, Magic's a thing and the government's been keeping that a secret for over a year.' How the fuck would that make you feel?”Camille's finishes up another aerial rune, “Well, you do have a point...”“But, they're psychos. I get that. Wouldn't go back even if they paid me. Brand new to the whole magic biz and first thing they do is give me a goddamn mission to get captured by Overwatch, you believe that? Not to mention, all the vets around us got offed.” You look over to Emilia for a moment before looking at Camille, “Say, how's Hunter anyway?”“He's good last I heard.” Camille sighs as she resumes scrawling. “He wasn't allowed to leave base until a couple weeks ago because of what the Followers did, but I've heard he's very effective at what he does.”“What does he do?”“I'm sure you know.” Camille forces smile.You'll take that in stride. Then.Tony shifts in place, leaning against a wall, hands in the pockets of his long black coat, “Followers, hm? I've not heard about them, who are they?”“Terrorists.” Camille states flatly.“A cult.” You correct.Tony scratches his chin a moment, “I'm supposing that they hurt people, force them awake?”“Yeah.”He stifles a laugh, but presents a grin, “Quaint.”Yeah, you too fucker.
>>36153406Tony a best
>>36153314Vein has >infinite internal casting (perma speed/intelligence/strength/durability buffs)>infinite ranged casting with proper medium>ranged direct casting that penetrates Bone defenses, especially potent because Asher has Alchemy>potential Biggie tulpa>aura properties benefit from all the spells Asher hasBone has>makes it somewhat easier to pull off the stuff we could already do with Alchemy>Physical improvements through shifting (is not permanent without certain hard to get spells)>Ability to become some kind of elemental>Ability to feed mana to our transformations to speed it up, though this is hampered by Asher's spell diversity making it cost more to reprocess the mana. Summoning mana also likely wouldn't lend itself to anything other than mythos invocation, which is pretty far removed from the enhancement shifts people seem to want.
>>36153406>implying the followers aren't the best thingAsher is a pussy ass bitch
>>36153406>force them awake>QuaintHmm, does Tony know more about awakenings than we do? Could be helpful for recruitment if we can awaken people without possibly killing them...
>>36153406Tony would've loved our work at the motel
>>36153479We already know how, it's just hard to do.
>>36153388>Echo hops in, “I found mushroo-”>>“Shhh.” Tony says again with a smirking look on his face, “Quiet in the exhibit.”>>36153406>more Tony being bestOh man he's the greatest
>>36153458Asher was right about that being a really shitty first mission. Almost like they didn't give a fuck about him like everybody else. Who would have thought huh
>>36153479Hey at least we didn't hurt camille phsyically
>>36153519They are still less insane than everyone else
>>36153519It's pretty obvious that their recruitment plan encourages throwing their weight against things, they could care less if they lost a few here and there
>>36153529No, they're certainly more insane. They're just more likable because they're earnest about it. They don't try to act like they're anything but a big pack of nutters that everyone wants to kill. They know what they are, and they do it because they think it's what needs to be done.
>>36153543It is what needs to be done, every era needs a villain, they are that villan
>>36153456Thanks for writing that out anon
>>36153625I'm sorry for being biased towards the better choice.
>>36153511>we will never be tonyWhy live?
>>36153388>“I'm going to get people out of here, gently. Do what you need to.”Something tells me things are about to get nasty.
>>36153883No, I quit it.
>>36153406 Echo arranges the preserved mushrooms around the runes as instructed by Solace, you and Emilia use little spikes of earth to ground them in place.“Alright, when Saph gets back, you're all going to hold hands and start the ritual summoning.”You give Solace a nod, but he seems to recognize your stupid look.“You've never done a ritual spell before, have you?”“Nope.”The cat explains that you should have something planned, an incantation. And everyone should know it beforehand so that they can repeat the words back and increase the power of the spell. “And no matter what, no one let go.”“Got it.” Not hard anyway. Group incantation, everyone knows the purpose of the spell. What's the worst that could happen?“Oh, right. And since we're using a ley line, don't let yourself get drawn into it. Fall in and you're not coming back.” Saph returns and you all begin, the place cleared of distractions.>Words for the ritual?
>>36154064>Words for the ritual?"Swiggity swooty, i'm coming for that booty"
>>36154094HA!also, i'm out. Not some fucking eloquent fairy
>>36154064Hear our words all seelie faeCome to our realm it's time to play
>>36154064To all those who would protect the woodthe human world is your home for good
>>36154064"In light we find our dancing play/In life we find our magic/in night we hear the music gay/In strife we find what's tragic.In speaking we tell of better days/in hearing we learn of more/In this place we call the Fae/and open up the door."You may now all laugh at my terrible incantation.
>>36154064Shit son this ain't gonna be good.Under the earth hidden 'neath caveAcross the sea and hidden awayNine worlds converge within this treeFrom Tir na nÓg to Chicago enter Seeliesomething something eternal children blah blah tricks I dunno my words are a bag of dicks.
>>36154204change "cave" to "caves" and then change the second line to >across the sea over shimmering waves
>>36154064This circle and oak pave the wayand bridge the realms: mundane and fae.
>>36154192Or better: In strife we find t'was tragicThere. NOW it's mildly presentable.
>>36154064>[The fae are] children, faerie-tales, pranksters, and nature guardians.Maybe something about that. If we can work in the whole Norse people-came-from-trees thing, that'd probably help some.
>>36154064Fair children born of twilight, come play your games among the mortal realm, keep the wood from eternal night, something something ealm
>>36154204>something something eternal children blah blah tricks I dunno my words are a bag of dicks.You're a poet anon
>>36154064We should remember this shit is all about spirtual nature of it, night can mean death, light could mean life, tree could mean family, sky could mean heaven. So use whatever loose definitions you want, it's the fae they could care lessAlso mention shit about how if there are two places, they must share a door. Their bullshit common sense should help there.Also maybe mention shit about how they were stuck in the middle because falling out with God, and now they're set freeI wish I cluld write
>>36154303my shite >>36154192 seems to fit your requirements. Party all day, party all night, make things like they were in the old days of magic, etc.
I'm just hoping Dran picks something usable out of this mess we just threw at him and it doesn't turn into a "let this fucker be horribly pained"-tier incantation.
>>36154225Like Ask with his ash tree,and Embla with her Elm,I call upon the Seelie,be bourne unto our realm.Like so?
>>36154343But we're using an Oak, not any of those.
>>36154360Oak wasn't a part of the creation myth. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
>>36154343Who's ask and who's embla?
>>36154393It is now mother fuckerSeriously though us using oak is pretty stupid.
>>36154397First humans in Norse creation myth.Ask = first man. Born from Ash tree.Embla = first woman. Born from Elm tree.The idea would be to parallel that by having the fae be "born" from the Oak tree.
>>36154407I think just Dran didn't want to spend 40 minutes on another fucking tree vote that ends in everyone just picking Ash anyway.
>>36154417Yeah. Holy shit though, I'm not feeling alright. Wicked friggin headache.
>>36154442Maybe you shouldn't have been playing Asian video games
>>36154442Try taking off your headphones
>>36154417Yeah, but then why make the default oak? The correct choice is obviously ash, which we have easy acess to
>>36154483Eh, that might help actually.
>>36154490You wouldn't believe how many times I had a nasty headache that was actually caused by the way the headphones were pushing on my hair. The follicles can do weird shit with the skin if you mess with em right.
>>36154064 The words begin and you feel the others as they link their power to your own ans yours to theirs in return."In light we find our dancing play.In life we find our magic.In night we hear the music gay.In strife we find what's tragic.”“Under the earth hidden 'neath cavesAcross the sea and shimmering wavesTwo worlds converge within this treeFrom Tir na nÓg to Chicago, free”“Open the door, Come and blessed be.”The chant is repeated three times and echoed thus the same as you lead the incantation. After the first, the acorn sprouts, rapidly growing into a sapling, breaking through the floor and spreading out its roots to match the runes scrawled for the circle. The branches too reach out to the paint as it concentrates the mana further.After the second chant, a notch in the tree folds in on itself like a door at first, only for the hinges to break off. The whole thing begins to shake as other roots dip down especially deep to tap into the ley line. You can hear the voices now of the faeries on the other side.The tree keeps growing, pushing through the roof, moving it unabashedly out of the way.After the third, the space distorts and the notch widens to the ground as a yawning hole to the other side, the faeries peering though with sheer curiousity and excitement.The first one steps through and a wave of mana erupts from the tree. Slow and deliberate, as soon as they pass through, mana erupts from the ley line, exploding out in a wave of blinding light.Everything goes black as you're blasted away, the slight tingles of Faerie magic coursing through your body...>[End Thread]>Next Thread Saturday at 20:00 servertime.
>>36154600Good thread dran. Wish it could have been longer but I can't blame you for a headache
>>36154646I feel bad about it, why I'm running Saturday too.
>>36154600Thanks for the thread. Hope you feel better
>>36154600I just knew we would get hit with magic energyI hope we aren't a midget trap
>>36154684You and me both anon
>>36154684I hope we look like a human-beast hybrid, it would make sense that biggie would corrupt our transformation
>>36154707>overwatch busts in and finds a human-esqe beast with no real definable animal base>surrounded by fae freshly pumped full of leyline magic>and a good bit of ZG
>>36154736Don't forget, we used a very Norse wood for the summon, they might be full on warrior fae. Wallie is just gonna 360 and walk out this bitch
>>36154600Does this mean everyone with us just got a little fae magic infusion too?
>>36154684>I hope we aren't a midget trapI hope we are. I like midget trap Asher.
>>36154774Probably, I doubt anyone but saph and asher are gonna get altered by it, saph because whatever fae connection she has, and asher for obvious reasonsCould also be all the magic got blasted at asher, it did say "deliberate" might have been their idea of a thank you
>>36154600>open portal to tnn>not even 1 limitNot enough of a great feat for you dran?
>>36154852Saph got it, not us.
>>36154824I could see Tony going all unseelie.
>>36154684>>36154707He's probably just got slightly pointy ears now or something.
>>36154860I will be madder than mad
>>36154892That's more of an elf thing, though the line between elf and fae was really blurry back in the day
>>36154907Seelie corresponds to light elves in Norse.Guess what we just did with that ritual just now. It involves Seelie and Norse.
>>36154917Jesus Christ Norse elves are essentially old school Angels, fucking otherworldly POWERFUL as shit dudes. Belila is fucked
>>36154956Belila is a day1 awakened Over with one of the most busted spells a Bone can have.Asher isn't going to be able to beat her just because the universe decided to give him a fairy-scented wet willie.When she shows up, I say we turn the suit to agility mode and cheese it far away while spamming Marcus with fire mana so that he can go burn the bitch to death.
>>36154988I meant the fact that the fae walking out of the tree are gonna be Norse elves. I mean that's some heavy implying on my part, but still.
>>36155014The fae coming out of the portal are more of the tir na nog variety, not Norse elves. The elf thing was about the changes to Asher.
>>36155022Dino focus would tint them Dino, I'm assuming the oak would tint them NorseNot like it matters, we'll find out next thread
Just want to say overall.You guys have no idea how glorious it will all be. Legna's going to be so freaking stoked about what's to come this Hollow's Eve.
>>36155055I'm sure she's looking forward to seeing Asher make an ass of himself and perform horribly in combat.I know I am.
>>36155100Go away suffering succubus
>>36155055Of course we don't, there haven't been any clues as to what's gonna happen
>>36155198There've been plenty, it's just that it doesn't really narrow it down enough to make a guess about what exactly is going to happen.>Morgan did something with a "friend">It's going to cause happenings>Saph is going to be happy that it happens, for some reason>Overwatch is going to show up at some point to deal with our shitPretty sure there's more, but I'm tired and can't remember things.
>>36155243She use the magic of Samhain to summon the Warriors of Camelot? that would bring the Templars full force intoChicago, they couldn't let that shit slide. That would be a happeningMaybe she talked to Merlin had him do XShit I don't know, any mythos fags still around know any connections between authorian shit and Samhain?
>>36155273Merlin's still alive and I doubt he's in America.
>>36155283Morgan is an adtral being, and Merlin is a use of Old magic, shit wouldn't be that hard for him. I mean it's fucking Merlin dude. THE wizard
Before reading this I'm pretty sure you all fucked up massively
Wait Norse mythos had fae too. Will we be summoning Light and Dark elves?
>>36158263>Will we be summoning Light and Dark elves?Seelie correspond more to Light-elves.Dark-elves are more like dwarves/unseelie
