You've taken quite a beating.When you reopen your eyes, the effects of adrenaline and of Zaan's healing salve have long faded away. Pain and muscle ache all over your body make you feel like a wreck. You're covered in linen bandages all over, an attempt to protect your scarred, flayed skin while it regenerates.You find yourself staring at a wooden board ceiling, tucked in a small bed in a small room. You're on the Bloodshark, Rubel's ship.You turn your neck around (with effort), feeling someone else's presence in the room, and you spot Tia, lying asleep on the floor. Perhaps sensing, somehow, that you have awakened, her eyes blink open.She stands up on her knees and leans over on your bed, slowly and carefully. "...how are you?" She asks, in a low voice.You bring your neck back in a straight position, and it cracks very loudly. "...ow." You reply.Tia looks like she's actually about to break down and cry. "...I'm sorry, Maka. It's all my fault.""...what? No!" You reply in a mumble."I should have gotten there earlier. I shouldn't have dropped that ship on you. I... I thought you'd get out in time. I thought you noticed it..." She mutters, brushing a hand against your bandaged waist, almost astonished by the damage you suffered."...I have no idea what happened to me back then." You admit, taking her hand in yours and squeezing it gently, trying to calm her down. "I saw the shadow, and saw the bits and pieces falling from the sky, but for some reason it felt normal, or I just didn't feel like looking up. Being in a fight does strange things to your perceptions. I should have seen it, but I didn't." You look into her tearful eyes. "It's not your fault. And, I knew you couldn't come in time, but i still decided to board the Murdering Heart without you. Again, not your fault."(Cont.)
"I should've been there to protect you." She replies, brushing aside your entire argument. "From now on, I'm never going to leave your side.""...I understand that you're worried about me, but someties we'll-""Never." She interrupts you. There's a spark of light burning in her eyes as she stares you down. For a moment, you find yourself panicked and terrified. "I'll never let you go anywhere alone anymore."> Agree> Deny> Try and calm her down> Try and cheer her up> Hide under blankets> Explain that you only boarded the ship because of Karas> Ask about something (what?)> Ask for someone (who?)
>Who are we?Maka, an exiled noble Exalted as a Zenith-caste Solar. She was in the western city of Tianna as a guest of queen Amata, an old friend. Abyssals are targeting the city for conquest, Lintha pirates have infiltrated it with spies and agents, and the Realm is probably planning to get rid of you. But things are also looking up. You have gathered a lot of allies and friends, have a powerful Manse under construction, and are unifying Tianna in a great nation under your overwhelming charisma.You just discovered the reason everyone seems to be so interested in Tianna: an enormous magical fortress lies buried underground, a relic of the First Age with enough firepower to destroy anything...>Solar?

Question on the archived threads i only made it to 35(lot of reading jesus)what happened between the time tiana told everyone we were marrying and now?
>>36281040...a lot. A whole lot. A fuck-tonne of a lot.
>>36281040Lots of things, really. Like an awesome festival, and making a truce with the abyssals, fighting dragon-blooded, discovering a huge weapon under the island, and starting to build our own city.
"...Tia, you're... You're scaring me a bit. Calm down." You whisper."...I... I just don't want you to get hurt again." She breathes a deep sigh. "I'm calm. I'm calm.""Look, sometimes we'll have to act separately. Like in this operation, we had to split up as part of the plan." You reason."And that was a mistake I'll never do again." She replies. "I'll be always next to you.""Look, Tia, I'm an Exalted. I'm a Solar. I can take care of myself.""No, you can't." She replies. "But that's alright. I will take care of you from now on."She didn't calm down at all. She just LOOKS calm. But her expressionless face, twisted in a trying-to-be-reassuring fake smile beneath crying eyes, gives you the chills.Someone knocks at the door, and the sudden noise startles her. "I will protect you." She repeats, as she stands back up, reaches for her Daiklave, and turns to the door...> See what happens> Talk her down> Try and distract her> Try and restrain her

"Tia."Something is wrong."Tia!"You try and stand up. It's a slow and painful slog, and even wrestling the blanket off you is an uphill battle.You thought you managed to bring Tia's crazy somewhat under control, but apparently it can always resurface...Legs and arms burn and sting as the fresh, raw skin of your flayed wounds rubs painfully on the bandages, the blankets, the bed, and each other.Physical + Zenith = 6 7 8 9 3 6 3 3 = 3 successesTia is clearly about to put her daiklave through the door, directly. She doesn't even know who is behind the door. She doesn't care. It could be Karas, or Amata, or anyone. Worse, it could be a mortal crewman coming to check on you, someone who stands absolutely no chance to survive or dodge.You stumble with a couple hurried steps across the small room and throw yourself at Tia.It's like waking her from a trance. A moment ago she was so perceptive she woke up when she detected your change in breathing from sleeping to conscious. Now, she doesn't even hear you stumbling noisily across the creaky wooden floor, and just jolts in surprise when you fall on her.Throwing away the daiklave to keep it away from you and trying to cushion you and sustain you, you both end up falling in a tangle of arms and legs, sprawled on the ground. She breaks your fall with her body."Don't." You whisper in her ear.Amata opens the door, and stares down at you two with a look of disapproval."Maka, what the hell are you doing? You're barely alive, covered in wounds and bandages, pumped full of medicine, and all you can think about is sex? And on the floor, even? I realize the bed is a bit small here, but...""N-no, wait." you try and get back up, but slip as your strength fails you and plant your face in Tia's chest. "It's not how it looks like.""Talk about a chichéd line." she giggles, offering a hand to both of you, helping you to your feet. Tia seems still confused and dazed, like she has no idea what just happened.(Cont)
>>36281274Her Great Curse seems like a lot less fun than ours.And a lot more likely to get someone killed.
>>36281325Our great curse isn't fun when people start saying "No." Either.That's when we start punching people.
>>36281341>people saying "No" to Maka
>>36281341Yeah, but it doesn't default to "Stab anyone who comes near our waifu, no matter their intentions."Also, Maka is charismatic enough that Mind Rape is more likely to result than the regular kind.I'm not saying our's isn't inconvenient, just that in the long run Tia's is likely to be more troublesome.
>>36281368I so want to see Karas' great curse. Everyone else's as well!
>>36281355Can happen. And when it does it's going to be someone who's going to be able to punch a lot harder than us.>>36281368You're right. Tia's can be directly a lot worse it seems.
>>36281376Please don't be so eager about everyone we know going insane.

As soon as you're back up, both of them shove you delicately back on the bed."You should rest. You're wrecked.""...Right. Right. Stay here."You put up a token resistance. "But I want to know whay's going on.""Alright, alright, I'll bring you up to speed so lie down now."They sit down on the edges of the already-narrow bed, on either side. You see Amata's hands and forearms are bandaged, and she has a fresh scar across her forehead. "...yeah, the Lintha didn't give up easy." She explains, noticing your gaze. "We fought hard all over the Murdering Heart. You missed some pretty good action."You glance sideways to Tia. She probably didn't see the rest of the fight either, as she's listening intently."Did you kill it?""Rajan got nearly blown to bits as well, but he managed to make good with his oath. We broke into the Murdering Heart's organ cavity and he insisted to personally slash its hearts open." she grins grimly. "Damn thing had a lot of blood in it.""Got anything interesting?" You ask."A pretty good haul. They had quite a bit of loot in their hold, probably taken from some recent raids. Trade goods, gold and silver, raw gemstones, silk, iron, spices."You wonder how it works when a monster ship carries in its hold/stomach spices, as your mind wanders for a moment."And directions for the Black Atoll." She adds."How did you get them?" You have to wonder.She looks away. "...Five Tails is very good with a knife."You never heard about a Lintha betraying his kind, not even under torture. This is a first."So, now, we-" You start, but Amata interrupts you.(Cont.)
"You do nothing. You're going to stay here and help me coordinate." She pushes you back down on the bed, interrupting your half-assed attempt to stand back up. "You're not frontline material now."Tia nods vigorously."But-""Think of it as... Queen training.""Queen training?""You're still inexperienced in tactics and strategy. Being removed from the action for a bit might give you perspective."> Alright, I'll stand back.> Only until I'm healed.> No way, I'm going.

Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36281597forgot to roll. Which you apparently do with each post? This system confuses me.
>>36281597>that's where we really shine by creating and inspiring the meat shields.But we only have one war charm, whereas we have multiple personal combat charms.
>>36281597I suggest integrating shields to our gauntlets the next time we find some orihalcum. Possibly add armor-piercing spikes to work with our HTH.
>>36281621>I suggest integrating shields to our gauntletsFrom what I remember our Gauntlets are meant to be sleek, sort of like opera gloves, so they don't look out of place on the rare occasion we wear formal clothes.
>>36281609Pffft. Force multipliers is where it's at. We get so much more out of having a bunch of awesome mooks than gassing out our personal combat charms.I mean, we're still a social specced class, we're going to get fucking ROCKED by combat specialist classes.
>>36281517>>Only until I'm healedBeing a queen sounds very boringI binged on exalted quest all this week and I'm finally caught up and in an actual thread woo
>>36281684Yes we're primarily Zenith, but Resistance, which deals with taking blows to the face and laughing them off, is a Zenith skill. And Dawn is our Second highest skill, if we were really social specced that would be Eclipse.
>>36281723Eclipse is overpowered, not social.
>>36281738What nonsense are you blathering?Socialize, Beuacracy, and Linguistics are all Eclipse skills, how is that not necessary for a social specced character?
>>36281738Sometimes you really wish you had one of those awesome Spirit Charms.Like Measure The Wind.Cheap. Effective. Immediately know what you're dealing with.And Zenith's are Social-Personal while Eclipse's are Social-Group.

"Unlike you, I AM a frontline type of person." You reply with a sly smile. "You're going to keep me boxed only while I'm this badly hurt, but as soon as I'm back on my feet..."You suddenly stop, noticing Tia's gaze fixed on you.Those are the eyes of someone that's seriously, non-ironically, actually considering amputating your legs or something similar, to keep you "safe". Amata either missed it or decided to change the subject right away to keep the conversation going. "We're setting sail for the Black Atoll now. We just finished loading the Heart's cargo and scuttling it. Or killing it, if that's a more appropriate word.""Good. When will be arriving?" You try and shake off the cold sweat."A day or so. It's a good outpost, tactically. Square in the middle of an area of sea outside of the direct path of most shipping routes, but with many rich routes within three days of sailing." She sounds impressed.One day. Wonder if they'll let you take part in it. "What kind of force will we face?""No idea." She shakes her head. "We don't even know if the Admiral, that Lintha you fought - probably a pureblood - was in charge of the whole operation or just of the Murdering Heart. We just know where it is."You sink into the bed, sighing softly. Your skin itches.Zaan certainly helped, with his medicines, but you know that the speed at which your wounds heal is increasing, compared to when you attacked the Wyld swamp. You have this perception of your powers growing steadily, in different ways and directions.Do Exalted just steadily become stronger and stronger, more and more powerful with time? Linearly, or does this growth plateau after some time? How much time?And yet, no matter how strong you feel, you still got almost killed. Well, you don't consider yourself a specialist warrior, in any case.That train of thought distracted you. You should...>Ask for someone (who?)>Ask about losses and damage>Ask about the loot>Ask about something else (what?)

Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36281761>>36281738>>36281723>>36281684Well since we got a dawn now, who can be the combat monster and train our troops. We can now afford to some dots in eclipse and come eclipse charms so we can become the ruler that Tianna needs.Although I imagine the next port of call is to get a charm that allows us to kill immaterial stuff. Also getting a 'fuck CoD' charm would be a bonus.

Not particularly great at the second part, but it works with the "convincing people to join us" part.We are a survivalist command centre, not a combat monster
>>36281826No, next port is AST and soak upgrade. To not die.
>>36281793Lets ask for Karas. We need to catch up on events. I wonder how did he got an exaltation. Did he stop a ship with his bare hands too?
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36281793>>Ask about the loot>>Ask about something else (what?)Where is our Broski?
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36281845Oh yea. Not dying is important.Still, we need to be able to fight gods and ghosts without them trolling us by becoming immaterial
>>36281845We can soak with upgraded meat shields. We just have to be able to survive alpha strikes.I know it's a hard concept, guys, but in some games you actually have to run away from things that can/will kill you. I mean, I know it's stated to be that it's hard to actually kill exalted in this quest, but that doesn't mean we can't die. Or have people sacrifice themselves to save us. If it wasn't for our friends (and our supreme Yandere) not even that would have saved us from our "Lead with our face!" tactics of fighting.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36281793>Ask about losses and damageWhile cuddling with Tia and an arm around Amata
>>36281872>survive alpha strikes.>arguing against ASTI must be misreading something.
>>36281793What losses did we take, what loot did we find, is the admiral crying in the galley now his life has no meaning, and is our brother dressing in frilly dresses again? In that order.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36281871OR, and this is just a thought, we could get our friends who are specialists at this to help us out. You know, since we aren't operating in a vacuum and we're social specced. > Tia: Punch her in her soul> Maka: I don't know how to do that> Tia: I will make Zaan do it for youSeriously, guys.
>>36281872That just means we need to get better at fighting. We gain experience FAST in this quest, and people have noted Maka is growing quickly even by Exalted standards, we don't need to pigeonhole ourselves like that, especially since a lot of people who follow this quest LIKE Maka's current progression of primarily Zenith and Dawn.
>>36281890Obviously I feel like we're strong enough to take a hit or two already.I'm not against getting AST either, but just saying that we can get more out of diversifying into an army. Keep in mind that we weren't even getting our shit pushed in by the BBEG last fight, but getting worn down by mooks. MOOKS.Tougher mooks, but still.
>>36281910And a lot of people would like to progress her Zenith and Eclipse, as evidence by how the charms have been selected so far.
>>36281920And that's why we need to upgrade our Soak.
"...what about our losses?""Gloria's been wrecked by gunfire. It's sailing back to Tianna for repairs. Out of the fight, probably for a while. Overall, fleet-wide, our losses were surprisingly low. Our Exalted sustained most of the fight, the toughest part at least. Overall, fifteen dead, fourteen wounded. Including pretty much all Exalted."The Exalted will all make recoveries, of course, but some of the mortals might have been crippled for life.Did you kill these people? You brought them to this fight. You picked a fight with the Lintha.You shrug away those thoughts. The Lintha needed to be taken out, for too many reasons. Leaving them alone would have been worse."Rubel suggested setting aside part of the loot to compensate the wounded, and the families of the deceased. An old practice of theirs." Amata informs you. "Pretty good thinking for pirates." she begrudgingly admits.> Good idea> No, we need that money> I have a different idea...

Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36281946Or we could get meatshields to fight with/for us so that our soak doesn't get overwhelmed by shit dice rolls again.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36281959>Good idea>Call me IshmaelHaving a Pension plan and benefits program will encourage a lot of people to join our navy/army, and encourages professionalism in the service. it is absolutely a good thing.

Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36281980How many times have we been in a situation where we could afford to wait for the meatshields to do the heavy lifting?No, we need that upgrade, we've needed it for a long time and have been aiming at getting it for even longer.

Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36281959>Good idea>Call me Karas, please
>>36281946The problem is that we burn through our essence & health with no chance to regain it, and while we have good soak we're taking all the hits directly to our face pretty much, especially if we get shit rolls. Not to mention that it only applies to wherever and whoever we're fighting at the time.If we had better trained guys, then maybe Amata's ship wouldn't have been sunk. What if we had lost her because of that, guys. How would you have magically soaked that?Look, I'm all for us being a badass battle bitch, but we are already at Queen and Commander level. And while we can lead from the front, we can't do everything and we're going to have to delegate. I don't see why you would be opposed to something that could help us in our immediate battles AND with battles across our kingdom.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36281959> Good ideaMoral is important. Although we need to be careful not to let our losses get too high.> Call me Karas, pleaseAlthough I imagine our brother is in worse shape then we are.

Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36281999>If we had better trained guys, then maybe Amata's ship wouldn't have been sunk.How? We were the only ship on the scene and had to save Karas' ass, no amount of better trained mooks would have helped that.Yes, we need to use better trained troops more often and in increasingly larger quantities, but we still need that soak upgrade, and we need it first.For the love of god, don't throw a wrench in our plans when we're finally one step away from it.

But I still think we should get on buffing troops for reasons mentioned by >>36281999.That "being able to afford to wait" goes both ways, hey?
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36282019Eh, still probably not a bad idea to check for commanders & promotions, stuff like that.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36281999>What if we had lost her because of that, guys. How would you have magically soaked that?How would more trained troops that were no where near close to being able to help have helped? Sure it's great if we have them to use them, but we didn't, and in situations like that, we won't, the plan decided that, and was dependent on that, so your argument is stupidly flawed.Don't use that argument to try and guilt trip us, that's just pathetic.
>>36282027We've been waiting for AST for about 20 threads, it's been a long term goal ever since EF said it was a thing. Meanwhile this is the first time you've brought this up that I can tell.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36282027>That "being able to afford to wait" goes both ways, hey?No it doesn't, they are either in position to help, in which case we use them, or they are not, and we're hung out to dry.Yes I'm all for buffing our troops, but we're getting AST first and thats that.
"Let's do this." You nod. "Leave it to him, I trust his judgement. He's been sailing and fighting on the sea longer than either of us."During all your discussion with Amata, meanwhile, Tia is staying silent, half-sprawled on your bed, laying her head on your belly like an oversized dog who thinks he's still a puppy."And... I'd like to have a talk with Karas and... If you can also call Zaan to change these bandages and give me some more of his happy juice, please?"Amata nods. "Sure. I'll go rest as well, it's been too long since I had a chance to. Best to be fresh when the next fight will happen."She leaves you alone with Tia."...Maka?" She asks, without moving."Yes?""I'm sorry."> don't be sorry, be careful.> it's all right, don't worry.> you need help, Tia.> (other?)
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36282027Dude, we've been planning for more than 20 fucking threads for this, yes we know about better trained troops, and yes we're planning for it, but we've got a plan in place, and it means we get AST first.Don't fuck with the plan.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36282053> it's all right, don't worry.> don't be sorry, be careful."We need to watch out for each other Tia."
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36282038You mean to either help us with the assault, or to protect the ship that went through fierce fighting while defended only by her and a bunch of regular people? How could having trained troops have helped in that situation? Gee, I don't know. Maybe we would have been enough of a threat that they would have had to actually focus on us instead of the captain playing cat-and-mouse with us? Or directly defending the ship?It was a bad situation we were in regardless, but that note really points out that if we just go full combat then we're missing out on our actual force multipliers such as being able to be effective in multiple places. We got the charms to organize and control a large army, lets make them a legitimate threat on their own that can help defend us, or wear down an enemy so they're spending essence to get to us.Remember, whoever blows through their special attacks first usually loses.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36282053>> (other?)HUGSand also >>36282060
>>36282055I thought I agreed to getting AST. Just not going full-combat route. We have specialists on our side for that already. It feels like the party bard is trying to tank.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36282053> you need help, Tia
Wait, what does AST stand for?
>>36282053> don't be sorry, be careful.All Exalts should be careful.
>>36282053>you need help, Tia.Tone down on the yandere.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36282053>> you need help, Tia.We all have our curses but sometimes . . . yours scares me. It seems like you would do anything to keep me safe, but that sometimes you don't listen to what I say. I'm not a pet or a thing to be kept locked up, I was exalted for a reason, and I'm going to go out and fulfill that.
>>36282067In Exalted, a Zenith is more a paladin than a bard.Seriously, you're ruining the plan.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36282061>You mean to either help us with the assault, or to protect the ship that went through fierce fighting while defended only by her and a bunch of regular people? How could having trained troops have helped in that situation? Gee, I don't know.What.In either case they would not have helped, if they came aboard to assault, they wouldn't be helping the Gloria, sure they would be helping damage the MH, but still not stopping the Gloria getting shot at, in the second case, they still wouldn't help with it getting shot at.Also, you do realise how small the Gloria is right? It's like a yacht, it can't hold many people, the small crew piloting it and us Exalted are pretty much max capacity, so both your 'arguments' are stupid and poorly thought out.No matter how you try to dress it up, more trained troops would not have been able to help the Gloria after we committed to help Karas, not unless the Gloria can hold a couple hundred troops...
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36282061>1>>36282087>10The dice gods agree, you're arguments are crap.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36282067>It feels like the party bard is trying to tank.Don't try to use such a comparison, you just make a fool of yourself then.Getting AST is not going 'full-combat route', its making sure we can effectively command the battle and best use our army commanding and leadership abilities and help finish off the fight.And please, we're not anywhere near close to being a bard.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36282092Well, far be it for me to argue with /tg/'s RNG. We all know how awesome that is.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36282061>How could having trained troops have helped in that situation? Gee, I don't know.If you can't see how they would not have helped in that situation then you really need to go and reread those threads, how are slightly powerful humans meant to stop canon fire from the Murdering Heart?
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36282053>> you need help, Tia.WE ARE BOTH IN DIRE NEED OF SERIOUS PSYCHIATRIC ATTENTION
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36282053>> (other?)"I think we both need help Tia. We just have to be careful."MOAR HUGS
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36282053>don't be sorry, be careful.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36282053> don't be sorry, be careful.Also hugs.Hugs forever.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36282100I guess the sexing made my mind go that way. And the fact that we can burn essence/spells to be tough for a round or two, and then get rocked. But then again, I usually play either PF or more story-teller based games, I'm honestly not too familiar with exalted. But it said Friendly to Beginners at the top.It just seems like it would be a better plan to not put ourselves in positions where we're taking max damage. Especially since, like I said, it seems like we have good social charms.I'm not arguing against the AST, though, just against going directly into combat if we can avoid it.
"...you scare me, Tia. Sometimes, you really scare me." You tell her, with brutal honesty. She flinches from the words like they physically hurt her.You sigh. You're not going to enjoy this, but..."...I was Chosen for a reason, Tia. I'm not a small child to be protected, or a little animal to be kept in a golden cage. You're amazing, but I can fight too. I am... I am going to become tougher. So you can feel safe even without staying between me and danger every second of your life."She gently nods."...sometimes you just shut everything else out and don't even listen to me. Like you decide that, in that moment, the entire world is your enemy.""Except you." She adds. "The entire world except you."You nod. "It's not. I want to fight together with you, even if I'm not as strong as you. So... Accept me as someone who needs a companion, not a bodyguard."She nods.(Cont.)(Going to afk a bit, give me a hour or so.)
>>36282110> We almost get killed by mooks, are worn out by the time we reach the boss, get deus ex machina save from WaifuAllies are the worst, guys.Anyways, fuck it, I'm tired of arguing. I mean, I can go on if you really want to, but I get the feeling neither of us wants to listen to the other.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36282137>It just seems like it would be a better plan to not put ourselves in positions where we're taking max damageThat is the plan, and was the plan, but Karas fucked that up royally.
>>36282137They don't last "a round or two" They last a scene, which is an entire combat or in some cases a series of combats. Exalted can excel at multiple things, and in Solars case, the entire thing is excelling at multiple things.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36282151>> We almost get killed by mooks, are worn out by the time we reach the boss, get deus ex machina save from WaifuRight, just go and put words in my mouth instead of reading my argument about that very specific context, I was not even addressing the rest of the fight, just the issues with your comments on how more mooks would have helped the Gloria.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36282151>but I get the feeling neither of us wants to listen to the other.uninvolved anon here wondering what you're smoking as you're not even reading that anons post and just trying to strawman a tangential point.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36282144awww, we need to give Tia headpats and cuddles now
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36282151>Allies are the worst, guys.He wasn't saying that at all, so nice job there.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36282144We need some Tia TLC time while Zaan patches us back together again, maybe we can use Tia as a pillow for once?
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36282223No anon, we're not even going to try until we know if he wants that and our wife and husband are fine with it, and even then, I don't want t.We just need a quiet night in front of the fireplace with Tia in our lap, while it rains outside, with a glass of wine in our hands.
>>36282223I can second this.
>>36282223Are you trying to start an argument that will kill the thread while EF is away?
Rolled 5 (1d10)Our DB minion told us that she's also a dancer.Has she danced for us yet?
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36282223Please for the love of god no
>>36282252No.We should dance with her some time.Invite Pyre Spark too.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36282252I don't think so, but she should>>36282223>>36282243>>36282248No.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36282223>>36282243>>36282248No thanks.>>36282257Yes please.
>>36282238>glass of wine in our hands.>not a glass of heroin pissDo you even exalted? That said, i'd like to at least have a Karas x Tia thing to happen at least once.
>>36282169Why not, you're the one ignoring the fact that there was fighting ON the ship, and that if we had been able to press the attack on their flagship then they might not even have been able to attack ours, instead focusing on us.Instead, the captain of the ship had her crew harry us while they sunk the Gloria.
>>36282223I get the feeling less people would be wanting to jump Karas's dick if we had more men in our harem. Our options for heterosexual love our woefully limited.
>>36282303That's only partially true.I was neutral on it, but I've decided to support it more because of the nay sayers now.
>>36282303Maybe a few, but a most that want to go for it probably want to because of the incest angle rather than in spite of it
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>362823011. They didn't sink the Gloria. 2. Yes it would have been great if we had more troops to press the attack, but where would they come from? The Gloria would not be able to have transported them, it's not big enough by any means, so that means they would have had to come on one of our other ships... Oh wait, they did just that...
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36282303Tia has all the dicks we'll ever need.>>36282320That's just petty anon and makes you as bad as them, don't be spiteful.
>>36282336How and why is it bad at all?
>>36282336>Rolled 10 (1d10)>Tia has all the dicks we'll ever need.The dice gods agree!
>>36282341The dicks or being a spiteful faggot?
>>36282336>Tia has all the dicks we'll ever need.But what about when Tia isn't around?Do you expect us to go without?
>>36282365Anon with how she just acted, I imagine Tia would break off a few for us to use if she ever needs to be separated from us.
>>36282336>>36282365>>36282372Hey, she still wants Maka to have a large harem.
>>36282372>Letting your Lunar order you aroundI am severely disappointed in you.
>>36282386That's just when she goes into kraken form
>>36282387I bet he thinks the Usurpation was justified.
>>36282387Who said anything about her ordering us around?I just meant that if we needed to send her away she seems like the sort that would immediately plop off a few detachable penis' for us before she had to leave.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36282395silly anon, of course it was
>>36282403Sorry, I misread you post, clearly it was Sidereal trickery. Or maybe Raksha.>>36282407Bronze Faction pls go.
Someone create Exalted General again
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36282419All the elder Solars were so fucked up, there was basically no way of redeeming them and they had to be killed. You don't actually think they should have let the really fucked up Solars continue to do what they want?I think they should have killed only the really bad Solars and created some sort of oversight that could hold Exalted accountable instead of "do whatever you want, as long as you don't fuck with another Solar, we don't care".
>>36282329I have no idea why you think having a smaller ship, and thereby a smaller crew, would be an argument against having that crew be a trained elite.
>>36282454It's not you idiot, read the fucking conversation chain. I was arguing about how having more would not have helped the Gloria in that particular instance because of the situation it was in.I'm all for having more trained elite, but for fucks sake actually put some effort into reading for once.
>>36282450>All the elder Solars were so fucked up, there was basically no way of redeeming them and they had to be killed.Depends on how you interpret the 1st age really. Plenty of their ghosts turned out alright after all.
>>36282454Anon, you do actually realize how powerful those trained 'elite' are when we are finished training them right?They are still unexalted humans, they still cannot bunch cannon balls out of the sky...
>>36282450That was impossible, the Sidereal barely won theUsurpation thanks to killing most Solars before the fighting started, if the Solars would have had even a moment to prepare, they would have wrecked the Sidereals shit and mindraped them into submission.Its also not true that "all" the Elder Solars were fucked up, there were plenty of good ones.
>>36282483Ghosts aren't hooked into the Great Curse.
>>36282329>"We almost lost the Gloria. It would have gone down under if not for Mika's charms. But it was still crippled badly. It's barely afloat, and we lost six sailors in the fight."Hm, looks like you're right, they didn't sink it.Still, remember when we were trying to disable the artillery and instead >http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35972465/#p35974163Got wrecked by their mooks? That was why I thought we lost it.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36282496then why didn't the good Elder do something against the fucked up ones if they were the majority?
>>36282509The great curse isn't solely responsible for the Solars downfall, it just amplifies the effects, if the Solars would have stayed true to their virtues, the great curse can't do shit.
>>36282512How could you miss that? It was the first thing we checked on after we woke up after going into a rage at the mere possibility of it being sunk.
>>36282516Who said they were the majority?I said "plenty" not "most".And you assume the "good" Solars gave a shit about what the other ones did.
>>36282490No, but they could keep the enemy mooks off our backs so we don't get worn down by them, grind off enemy Solars & DB, let us achieve multiple objectives like taking out artillery & ranged support while we're busy slapping cannonballs around. Having them be trained means they don't just get wiped out casually and be useless overall, as well as us not having to worry too much about saving them.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36282535Are you really a good person when you don't care that your peers are engineering people to make beautiful music when tortured, then torture them and show them of as art pieces?
>>36282540That's all well and good, and that's exactly what we planned for, and guess what, we have those troops, our pirates we trained up.But do you know where they were? Not in the fight until well after we boarded the Heart to chase after Karas.Yes they would have helped earlier if they could have.But that cannot help what they cannot fight, and if they are still leagues away from the fight, then what the flying fuck are they meant to contribute to the battle?
>>36282550Assuming that is a thing that actually happened. Which it didn't.Most solars kept their shit to themselves. And you confuse solars with paladins if you think they are supposed to be "good people", they aren't, they are supposed to be heroes in the classical sense, that leaves plenty of room for fucked up-ness.
>>36282516They were more of a sizable minority, and most of them probably didn't realize how bad things had really gotten with some of their colleagues.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36282567I'm pretty sure the music from tortured mortals thing is canon
>>36282550"good solars" means not absurdly decadent, callous assholes. Not "lawful good" solars, which isn't a thing.As a matter of fact there were Solars who did exactly that, but most solar didn't have a mandate to judge their fellows.
>>36282589I mean the "showed their peers" part.If they showed that kind of thing to anyone it would be to similar solars, not just to the deliberative.The point was most solars didn't know what the other ones got up to, because Creation is a big place.
Rolled 8 (1d10)This argument is fucking retarded. The only reason we don't have better-trained troops is because we ran out of time to train them. Next time, we will have them. And we're definitely taking improved soak charms. Everyone's getting what they want. Nobody is losing out on anything by getting it. Just shut the fuck up instead of pissing away ANOTHER hundred posts on this stupid fucking fight. These threads don't happen enough anymore top slam them into autosage with something so dumb.
>>36282558We didn't have any trained soldiers with us. Tia (by GM fiat with no intervention by us) trained the Black Fang soldiers and had them with her.We actually HAD the option to take people with us > >Full speed ahead, flank it, and then we all board it.But nobody even considered taking untrained mooks with us because, well, what's the point in having them in a Solar fight?Then, like I said, we got worn down by THEIR mooks.
>>36282627What are you even arguing here?
>>36282622That's all I wanted. I don't have anything against Soak charms, I just don't want us to over-focus on direct combat. I agreed multiple times with getting AST. Just for some reason one guy got really pissed off that I said troops could have helped us.
>>36282627>We didn't have any trained soldiers with us.EXACTLYTHIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYINGHow the fuck have you not gotten that yet?We had our pirates and Tia's soldiers on the other ships, the ones that could actually carry them, and not on the Gloria which was a fast scout yacht.So what the fuck is your point because I don't even think you know it now.
>>36282627uhhh wutdude, did you even read his post?also>We actually HAD the option to take people with us no we didn't, they were on the other ships in our fleet, several kilometers away from us, the only fighting troops we had on the Gloria were the Exalted and us, the rest were crewing it for Mikahil
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36282643Nobody was arguing against you. You were both agreeing at each other angrily without actually reading what reach other said. Just shut the fuck up. Don't even respond to this post. Just end this fucking idiotic argument/discussion. You're both regards who are literally killing this thread by wasting its post count. Shut the fuck up.
>>36282643No anon, you said troops could have helped the Glora not get sunk, which was fundamentally flawed several times over.
Rolled 5 (1d10)Thinking about the use of trained soldiers. We will need all of them in order to crack black atoll and make it spew out all of this goodies.Lintha are certainly going to supplement their forces with blood apes and other demons. We should find out why Zaan doesn't like to summon demons or at least find out if he knows any banishment sorcery.
>>36282689We should just tell our Twilight to summon some demons for us. Thats what they are there for.Elemental summoning is way too unreliable.
>>36282701Our Twilight is a Crafts/Lore Twilight. They don't know Sorcery.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>362827011.Our Twilight doesn't know sorcery. She only know Thaumaturgy. We will need to correct that but we can't do it right now.2. Did we bring our Twilight with us?
>>36282701She doesn't have any Sorcery.
>>36282714As a Twilight she got Occult as caste ability, she can learn sorcery.
>>36282719We brought everyone to the party, she was talking to Irene before we shipped off
>>36282725But she doesn't have any is the point. She CAN l;earn it, but hasn't.
>>36282725Not in less than a day.
>>36282757Makes a sacrifice and buys the chrm. Problem solved. We've been ignoring charm training times the entire time. And it was also a joke, because I keep forgetting how little people here sometimes know about the Setting and didn't realise its not as blatantly stupid an idea to them as it is to me
The minute of tense, nervous silcence following is interrupted by a sudden knock.Without waiting for a response, Zaan gingerly walks in the room, slamming the door behind him. He has a large canvas satchel with him, and his torso is messily bandaged and plastered with some kind of medical goo. He has a large fish in his mouth, clearly still raw and fresh. He must've started eating it from the tail, since the head is the part poking out of his teeth. It quiclkly disappears inside his maw, though."Sorry, was finishing my dinner when Amata called." He explains nonchalantly. "So, let's take off these bandages and see how it's going."With the two Lunars' help, you remove them. It's a painful, delicate process. Your skin is pale and sensitive, feeling rather like the raw flesh of an open wound, except it's almost all over your body. The light and dark patchwork reminds you of a cow's pattern. "Uh, I'll not stay like this for long, right?" You ask, suddenly worried."I don't mind it." Tia replies.Zaan ignores her. "Sometimes supernatural wounds leave scars even on the Exalted, especially when they're very deep. This damage is extensive, but not deep. It'll probably regenerate. By the way, your healing speed is really amazing for a non-Lunar. Last time I checked you, on the Lintha ship, you had about 20 fractures all over your body."The praise makes you smile, but he gives you a stern look that makes you shut up."You should be careful. They haven't healed completely. Your bones are still brittle. No heavy lifting, no fighting or hard work. No running or jumping." Then his hard gaze moves to Tia. "No physical activity."She frowns sadly."Honestly." He mumbles, applying the healing salve over your burned skin and beginning to wrap you up. "You should really be more careful, you know. You could've lost them. You were lucky.""I know. I promise I'll-" wait. "Wait. Lost who?"(Cont.)
>>36282725We should ask EF how sorcery works in this setting. Having to pay for EVERY individual spell when most aren't very useful strikes me as one of the things he might have changed.
>>36282780>You could've lost them. You were lucky.Oh thank goodness.
>>36282780>You could've lost them.Gonna be hard to find the dad among those triple digits.
"The babies, of course. I mean, Exaltation will help you there, but you should still be mindful of-" he pauses. "Wait, you didn't know?"> (speechless)> Wh-wha? ...wha? What.> Turn to face Tia. Stare. Hard.> B-but... I...
>>36282814>> Turn to face Tia. Stare. Hard.

>>36282814>> Turn to face Tia. Stare. Hard.>>36282809Well that's embarrassing
>>36282672Trained troops, yes. Instead, Tia took HERS, while we didn't have the time to train any for our ship. Ironically, we also had the choice to have Tia go on the Gloria, while we stay with the troops and our war charms. And you keep saying it's a sloop with no crew, but all I can see is that it was outclassed by the enemy flagship. It's a trade ship that we had double as a warship see> http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/31797550/So maybe you should check your facts a little bit before creating a narrative in your head.

Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36282901I'm pretty sure that's a charm for Twilights, it's suppose to be a replacement for there anima ability
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36282904Looks more like Zenith to me, honestly. It's basically just more soak, why would it be twilight?
>>36282901It's the Twilight Anima effect just like the Zenith Anima effect is destroying Creatures of darkness just by being around them, which is called Banish The Darkness on Maka's sheet, so probably not.
>>36282901Its a representation of her Twilight Anima ability, so no.

Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36282802We took the tea for that after the festival, the only people we've been with since then is our family and lovers, and only Tia is equipped for that.
>>36282952That doesn't work because maiden tea makes women infertile for a month.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36282850>but all I can see is that it was outclassed by the enemy flagship. It's a trade ship that we had double as a warship seeHow about you go read when we first are introduced to the ship, the only narrative there is the one EF has written.
>>36282952Unless Samiel is *really* Virile.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36282964The answer is that Tia knocked us up before that festival, back when we were galavanting around the island recruiting goddesses and pirates.And no, it doesn't, it's something you need to drink every day for it to work reliably, like birth control pills.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36282964and I'm sure there was more than enough time to pass for it to get out of our system, or at least enough for Tia to break throughthe festival was a long time ago
>>36282964Maybe the tea failed?Shit, I'd love that.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36282968Nah, Smoke's been draining him dry, Tia's the only one who could.>>36282982The rest of us wouldn't.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36282986>The rest of us wouldn't.What? I would. Most of us are shocked, not upset.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36282964Still works, if we didn't take it reliablely then we probably got pregnant that one time we had sex with Tia in the barbarian camp, I wonder if that makes Iscariah something in relation to the baby, she was there when it happened
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36282976Do you think it happened when we had our first 'date' with Tia and we sunk that island?
>>36282793I'm glad I'm not the only one who jumped to that thought first
>>36282976>And no, it doesn't, it'sRead Exalted Core book page 365, its says explicitly Maiden tea renders women infertile for a month.So if the tea failed because it wasn't high enough of a dosage, then it could very well be from the triple digits.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36282998Probably.>>36283000In that case, we were definitely already pregnant before the festival. Probably when Tia broke our bed, or when we sank that island.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36283000Read where EF said we took more than enough of the tea to cover that.It isn't from the festival.
>>36282978>the festival was a long time agoReally? Was it more than a month already, shit this long off-time fucked with my perception of time for this quest. How long has it been?
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36283011Just a couple weeks, not an entire month.
>>36283000>then it could very well be from the triple digits.No it couldn't be, EF flat out said we drank plenty of tea and that rendered that possibility nil.
You stare at Tia. Hard.Tia's face cracks in a broad, toothy, impossibly smug ear-to-ear grin, showing every one of her teeth from start to end.It's the face more desperately in need of a punch you've ever seen. Not even for the sudden, unexpected news, nor for the sneaky sensation that she might have known and not told you anything. Just for how SMUG she is about it. Zaan slowly facepalm. "...What the hell were you expecting? You're adult and gave every indication of being confident and knowledgeable about your sexuality, so-""I am!" You interrupt him. "And I take Maiden Tea habitually. I've been taking it for years, since before I Exalted even.""I'm sure you did." Zaan nods sagely, grabbing Tia's head with both hands and gently trying to twist it around by 360° and snap her neck to make her stop doing that fucking face. "But did you consider, well, Tia?""You're saying Maiden Tea doesn't work on Exalted?" You had no idea."No. I'm saying Maiden Tea might not have worked with Tia specifically. There's only so much a simple medical infusion can do, and, to the best of my knowledge, Tia has been nothing but persistent about, well. You know."You're still coping with the news. "...Yes, I know." Did Tia take the fact that you drank Maiden Tea as a CHALLENGE?"...Is it...?" You ask, half-mumbling your words."A month and a half, I'd say. I only found out when tending to your wounds. It would have taken another four months or so to notice otherwise. So yes, it probably happened just after you two met for the first time."You're not sure how to deal with this.(cont.)
>>36283000>So if the tea failed because it wasn't high enough of a dosage, then it could very well be from the triple digits.The QM said outright that wasn't a possibility with the amount of Maiden Tea we drank after that.
>>36283007>we were definitely already pregnant before the festivalNo way to know for sure.>>36283010>>36283022If >>36283018is correct, then it must have failed since we can't have gotten pregnant after taking the tea.
>>36283029>Did Tia take the fact that you drank Maiden Tea as a CHALLENGE?Yes. Yes she did.Tia a best.Forever and ever.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36283029>Did Tia take the fact that you drank Maiden Tea as a CHALLENGE?Just because you can doesn't mean you should Tia, I mean I'm impressed, but still.
>>36283037Be patient anon, otherwise you get egg all over your face when EF updates.See >>36283029
>>36283029Tia best husbando, most fertile prince(ss)
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36283029well, it's nothing even more maiden tea can't solve
>>36283029Right, Tia, we need cuddles and don't you ever keep something like that from us again.
>>36283029>"No. I'm saying Maiden Tea might not have worked with Tia specifically. There's only so much a simple medical infusion can do, and, to the best of my knowledge, Tia has been nothing but persistent about, well. You know."Okay what. How did Tia somehow make Maka FERTILE AGAIN? Maiden's tea explicitly makes the woman infertile, barren, incapable of having children.And even then, Maiden's tea causes abortions on top of that, so the child would have died after the festival.
>>36283065I don't even know what you mean, did you honestly think there was any possibility EF was going to incite the shitstorm it not being Tias baby would have brought?Seriously anon.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36283029>So yes, it probably happened just after you two met for the first time.Well, thank the Unconquered Sun the 'triple digits' paranoid fucks were wrong.
>>36283029>Did Tia take the fact that you drank Maiden Tea as a CHALLENGE?No, bad Tia, BAD.We need to figure out a way to return the favor. It will be hard since Solars don't have shpaeshifting, but I believe in us.
"I thought you'd know. I mean, what about your things?""My things?""Yes, your things.""Oh, my things." You get it. "...actually, I heard from Amata that, uh." You lower your voice. "The shock of Exaltation sends the whole cycle a bit haywire, so I didn't think much of it when they didn't happen."He shrugs. "Might be true, or might be only a Dragon-Blooded thing.""I thought you knew this stuff. Being, you know...""I'm a shark, not a gynecologist." He replies, finally letting go of Tia's head. "Besides, I was a man when I Exalted and I've stayed a man, so I don't have direct experience in that regard.""...You don't want them?" Tia asks, her smug grin now replaced by a worried expression.Oh boy.> Ask more details to Zaan first> Wait for Karas before discussing this> Call Amata> I want them> I don't want them> (Other?)
>>36283029>Did Tia take the fact that you drank Maiden Tea as a CHALLENGE?>"Worried you might get pregnant? Bitch I will MAKE you pregnant."Best husbando.Shit, that means we need to get properly married pretty quick. The last thing our budding nation needs is an out-of-wedlock scandal before we've even finished our city.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36283075>Maiden's tea causes abortions on top of thatOnly in excessively high doses, which the amount after the festival apparently wasn't.
>>36283087> Call Amata> I want them
>>36283075Well, you know, Lunars man.IMy low quality baiting aside, it was pretty obvious Tia did it with Lunar abilities. Lunar is also a fertility deity.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36283087>I want them"I just wanted to be FUCKING CONSULTED first. Damn it. I wouldn't have taken quite as many risks if I had known, Tia!"

Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36283087>"...You don't want them?" Tia asks, her smug grin now replaced by a worried expression.taking maiden tea is USUALLY a sign that no, you don't want children. I hate to sound like a feminist, but it is Maka's body and her decision if she wants to become pregnant, not Tia's. I)'m actually pretty pissed at her.> Call Amata
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36283087>> Wait for Karas before discussing this>> Call Amata
>>36283117>Not possible.Practically it could have been, I would think anyone would realise EF isn't gonna do it, but it could have definitly happened with a less forgiving QM.

Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36283087>> Call Amata>> I want themGood old panic that you nearly aborted them multiple times.
>>36283087>I want themThis is a great thing, it's just not a great time to have them and we're still in a little shock as to how it happened at all.

Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36283087> Call Amata> I want themI want to keep them, but can we still tell Tia that this is not okay? "I didn't know if you wanted children, so I made you pregnant and hoped for the best" is really not okay
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36283087Not sure if we want Amata to know about them for a while. She will be teasing us to no end.> Ask more details to Zaan firstHow many?
>>36283087>> I don't want themIt is no time for children
>>36283149Anon, Tia proclaimed we were her wife the moment we met her, and we managed to get her to slow things down and get her to properly romance us, that first date was sweet as hell.
>>36283168I'm not actually sure Half-Castes can happen between Exalted, its not really clarified.
>>36283149It's not like she poked holes in the metaphorical condoms.
>>36283190Except for the fact she got us pregnant on it without our premission.
>>36283149Nigga think a second. Tia is already a bit off mentally speaking. Up and saying you don't want her kids is going to cause a fucking psychotic breakdown. Not to mention that in-character, Maka's primary objections would be surprise and poor timing, not anything against having Tia's kids in the first place.
>>36283087> Ask more details to Zaan first> Call Amata> I want themI just want to know more and inform our wife of the good news
>>36283201Thats hardly her fault that our medicine didn't work.
>>36283201I'm sure our ovaries will not rant on tumblr about it forever and ever and start petitions to castrate Tia's sperm.
>>36283168Well, not in ours anyway.
>>36283087>>I want them.>>Call Amata.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36283168To be honest I imagine that Karas would be like Shirou or Natsuru when it comes to sex.
>>36283199Depends on edition.2nd edition was that the highest Essence partner decides the type of the offspring, if equal essence then Solar > Lunar.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36283203>Tia is already a bit off mentally speaking.yes, and if we encourage it it will only get worse
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36283199>its not really clarifiedIt absolutely is. The person with the higher Essence (Tia) wins, unless there's a tie, in which case Solar trumps Lunar and Lunar trumps Sidereal. Considering how much older and more powerful Tia is, they're Lunar half-castes, if they're half-castes.
>>36283200>>36283212>>36283213Maiden Tea is normally 100% effective, but Tia did SOMETHING that made that not the case
>>36283087> Ask more details to Zaan first> Wait for Karas before discussing this> Call AmataReal talk. Having children as an solar exalt is generally a bad idea in the current age in exalted. Too many sword and fire happy dragonblooded. And abyssals. And sids.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36283226At least they are not beastmen.Hopefully
>>36283201Last I checked fucking and getting creampied is implicit acknowledgment of the possibly of pregnancy. If we were really dead set against this kind of thing, we should have told Tia to pull out.
>>36283087>I don't want themDamn it, every time start liking Tia, she goes and does this shit.
>>36283228I don't think she actively did anything.Its just being Lunar, and possibly being our Lunar mate, and of course, need I say it? FUCKING PATTERN SPIDERS!
>>36283224Then we probably shouldn't have a committed relationship with her, given we're the object of her obsession
>>36283243>is implicit acknowledgment of the possibly of pregnancySee >>36283228
>>36283237Technically the lunar can decide if they become Half-Caste lunars or beastmen, but since its going to be a Solar half-caste, we might actually get beastmen half-caste solar children.
>>36283243Consider a woman on the pill. Or an IUD. Maiden tea is like that. But better. No side effect and a 0% failure rate.Which makes this quite a surprise. QM's prerogative i suppose.
>>36283226Lunar half-castes still have some animal features, don't they?Catgirl daughteru.
>>36283087>> Call Amata>> I want them
>>36283087>> Wait for Karas before discussing this>> Call Amata
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36283268Nope. Only if they were the result of interspecies forms - like if Tia fucked us while, say, a wolf - in which case they're full-on beastmen.
>>36283268Not normally, but, you know, Lunars, who knows?>>36283267Not quite, mechanically, yes, but IC you can very well have a too weak dosis for example.
>>36283274>Wait for Karas guise, he'll abort the babbys with his sward
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36283278Zaan's kid that we fought super early on was a shark beastman right?Does that mean mean what I think it means?
>>36283286He is going toe be absurdly happy about being uncle.
>>36283259>>36283267"Normally" 100% effective. When are Exalted ever normal.This is one of those things that's only obvious in hindsight.
>>36283293Zaan just said he's a shark anon.
>>36283283We've been taking it for years, and there is no difference in does between an Exalted and Normal mortal, I think we know how much we need.
"It's- yes- I mean-"You turn around and slam your head into the room's wall, one, two, three times, lightly cracking a wooden board in the process.Zaan sighs."...I do. I... I love you, Tia. And I'm alright with having children. But- I wasn't expecting it. Did- did you know?""I hoped and suspected." She admits. You feel like tearing your hear out. "I can't wrap my mind around it. How did you DO that?""Do that?" She tilts her head sideways, confused, repeating your words. "...Don't be silly, Maka. You know how I did it. I put my-""I mean, how did you do it despite the Maiden Tea?"She tilts her head the other way. "What's Maiden Tea?"Zaan slams his head on the wall as well."...It's a medicine that shouldn't have gotten me pregnant. I always take it.""You should quit it for a while now, by the way." The shark lunar mumbles, still stunned.Tia thinks about it for a moment."I just loved you more.""...More than what?""More than the medicine you took.""More than the med- Tia, the medicine is an inanimate object. It doesn't feel love.""Exactly."You're going to sink this ship by this rate.You collapse back in the bed. "...Zaan, please, go and call Amata and Karas... I need their- They need to know. Don't tell anyone else for now. I... I need to think about it."He nods, and, as he's about to leave, informs you: "By the way, my best guess right now is twins, or maybe triplets. It's a bit early to tell."The door slams, leaving you alone with Tia.> Wait for Amata and Karas>Tell Tia something (What?)
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36283293Makes me wonder who was the mother.

>>36283407Dude, I'm not sure you shoulöd be getting "the talk" on /tg/, but thats not how it works.
>>36283402Fuck yes we need to do that
>>36283407>deliberately trying to knock up their partnerThe fact that Maka let Tia pour gallons of her seed into her is definitly something Tia had good reason to consider ample consent. Sweet, sweet consent.And its not like she did anything beyond normal reproduction.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>Unexpected pregnancy.I was wondering how long it would take before we would finally get to some my my fetishes. Now I can quest with my dick in my hand, just like all the other players.
>>36283414Notice I used the word "deliberately".I understand accidents happen, but Tia admits she was trying to do it on purpose.
>>36283435I'm sorry it took so long for you, that must have been terrible.
>>36283435Kara's still isn't wearing heels, my fetishes aren't fulfilled yet
>>36283443You can't really do it "not" on purpose. Again, Tia didn't know she was taking meds, so she just did the normal reproduction thing and it worked, thats not Tias fault.

"Tia..." you sigh.She leans in closer, with a way over-excited expression on her face."...You should have told me.""What? I thought you knew. I mean, we did it so much, I'd be more amazed if this DIDN'T happen.You can't really deny that.Still, how the heck did that happen? Fate? Was it something so romantic (and out of your control)? Or was it the fact that Tia is a shapeshifter, and a very good one? She never had any qualms about using her shapeshifting in bed, and maybe that... changed things?Maybe with Exalted you just need a higher dose of Maiden Tea?...And, knowing you've been pregnant all this time puts all the risks and wounds you've suffered since then in a different perspective. Not to mention when you risked overdosing on that tea. It does make your skin crawl a bit. You didn't know anything. To think that you might've lost them there...Credit to Exaltation in general and to your sturdy body in particular, that you still have them despite all you've put yourself through.Was Tia so protective of you because she knew? Or, well, "knew"? You guess there was some level of purely animal instinct involved.Lunars, man. "Even if it might have been obvious to you, it wasn't to me. ...From now on, please talk to me about these things."She hugs you. "And from now on... you please be more careful about yourself."You'll have to consider that as well. There's no "yourself" any longer, in a way.Will you be able to do your duties of a Chosen of the Sun, queen, ruler, warlord and champion of justice and all that, knowing this?That's about when the door to the room explodes in a cloud of splinters ad Karas headbutts it into oblivion, rushing in.

In that situation, it would probably be Survival - maybe Resistance. Certainly Zenith, at any rate.>>36283511This is accurate. Transforming your breast milk to be chocolate is in-theme for Lunars.

Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36283535>Try to calm Karas down.>>36283567>>36283568>>36283569>>36283578>>36283580Are you trying to make him sink the boat?
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36283535>That's about when the door to the room explodes in a cloud of splinters ad Karas headbutts it into oblivion, rushing in. "WHAT IS HAPPENING WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY SISTER HOW WHEN DID THIS YOU MAKA BABIES AAAAAAAAAAAAA".Best brother ever>(Other)How is our brother holding up anyway? He seems well enough to headbutt a door and he must have taken more damage then us.He must have Physical 5 with lots of ox bodies.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36283535>Talk to Karas and Amata (tell them what?)"Well much the usual way, Karas. Do I really have to give you talk?"
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36283597He didn't get a Full Frontal Curse Beam. He's probably doing a lot better than we are, despite taking more damage in the fight leading up to that.
>>36283535"Karas, calm down for a moment and stop destroying things. Amata, looks like you'll have step-children soon."
>>36283593>Word of advice Karas, talk a lot with your future Lunar waifu. Prevents these misunderstandings.Words of wisdom from an onee-chan to her outoto
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36283535>"Karas, please tell me that I don't need to have a talk with you about where babies come from"
>>36283535>Let Tia explain it."I put in..."
>>36283611He charged right into one to shield us, remember?
>>36283535>We did it the usual way Karas, very, very often. Come to think of it, there is a good chance we just flushed the maiden tea out.
>>36283535>Have Tia explain>"Karas, when I told you I was fucking your sister I didn't mean metaphorically."
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36283655He had a shield in hand. That took the brunt of that hit. Remember?
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36283593I've been expecting Karas to have a Battle Brother type Lunar rather than him getting a waifu
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36283658>Come to think of it, there is a good chance we just flushed the maiden tea out.>What I'm saying is that I swallow.>She does - a lot.>A LOT.
>>36283676The shield splintered and he ate the beam head on while he was tearing the eye out.
>>36283535>>Talk to Karas and Amata (tell them what?)"AMATA WHAT DO I DO WHAT DO I DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!?"
>>36283682I don't expect her to literally say the word waifu.We all know Karas is going to get a bara husbando.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36283682I'm expecting him to have a gay-as-fuck beefy, hairy bear of a Lunar Husbando. The idea that someone in Maka's family could have a Lunar mate who doesn't want to get romantic is vaguely hilarious. Plus, Karas is clearly on the slight and effeminate side, despite being a Dawn. He'd make such a cute bottom.I'm still hoping her sister's our Night, though.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36283686Maka doesn't even need to breath, I thinkDoes having a dick in your throat count as a natural hazard?
>>36283686That's not how it works anon.
>>36283686Fuck that is an ugly comparison
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36283707>>36283708>baramind
>>36283709Depends on whether it was being wielded with malicious intent
>>36283709I'm sure Tias does.>>36283712Thats is exactly how it works.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36283708>>36283707Might even be Talon, for a while I though he was going to be Valeriana's mate actually
>>36283732 What did you do to my sides anon, I'm dying here
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36283737>Might even be TalonThat would be hot.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36283708Needs to happen
>>36283733Maidens tea isn't something that stays in the system though
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36283737It's a shame Maka never fucked Talon
>>36283737>Might even be TalonGreat idea, fingers crossed
>>36283755You clearly underestimate Tias sperm. Literal sexual healing.
>>36283340... anyone have those picks of the Thri-Kreen girl wearing a sundress and hat? I think they might be appropriate here.
>>36283767I don't think Tia learned Medicine anon......That said I like the cut of your hair.
>>36283708Fuck off with that gay shit.
>>36283767Sexual healing is actually a more likely cause than flushing it out, since the Maiden's tea essentially damages the system
>>36283780>no gay shit>in exaltedIs this your first thread? We had gay shit literally since the first one.
>>36283745No it would not
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36283780Nope. Karas is going to get his ass wrecked by a hairy mountain of a Lunar, then get on his knees and ask for more. And it's going to be beautiful.
>>36283787Depends on how fast she swallowed after taking the tea.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36283780>Fuck off with that gay shit.worried about gaynessTHIS IS CREATION!
"Calm down." You shut him up.Amata climbs down from his shoulders with a broad smile. "Congratulations, Maka."You nod, still feeling your head spinning. "Thank you. It came as a surprise to me as well, and I'm not sure how it happened exactly...""Maybe Tia is just too much for the Maiden Tea to handle." She suggests with a giggle."How can you take this so lightly?" Karas asks her, almost out of breath. "First of all, even without mentioning how irresponsible you're being, Maka! You're the heir of Gem! You can't just- I mean-""Oh, we already had plans to marry, in any case."Amata nods. "All three of us."Once he recovers the ability to speak: "You're all girls! How does that even- I mean, how DID that work?"Before Tia can offer a practical demonstration, you cut in: "She's a shapeshifter, Karas. A Lunar.""Can- can she shapeshift THAT too?""Yes, yes she can, and no, no you can't show him, Tia. At least wait a bit."She makes a sad face."I might not have expected it or planned it, Karas, but I'm going to keep them."He looks like he's about to collapse on the floor. "THEM?""Two or three." Zaan, half-hidden behind them up to now, steps out. The room is small, and fairly crowded by now. "It's a bit soon to tell."Alright, THAT's when he drops. What a living demon ship full of Lintha and monsters and eye beams couldn't do, Zaan just did with a short sentence.[Session end](I know it's a bit early, but we're already at 450, autosaging, and it's a good point where to stop at.)
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36283791Yes, it would.
>>36283707>>36283708Why does the fact that he's pretty mean he needs to be gay?I support all of Maka's family being bisexual
>>36283792No, that's disgusting. I'd rather have incest than this shit.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36283801>(I know it's a bit early, but we're already at 450, autosaging, and it's a good point where to stop at.)Awww, damn. I was hoping for a second thread, since it's so early.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36283813well fuck you, then
>>362838016 hours is a good run, you were cranking them out pretty fast there EF, thanks for the thread.>>36283804Yeah, at minimum I'd want Karas to be bi, so we can be his wingman. But I just hate that people go "oh hey we have a brother, LETS MAKE HIM GAY LOLOLOLFETISH"
>>36283801>(I know it's a bit early, but we're already at 450, autosaging, and it's a good point where to stop at.)You did start an hour earlier than usualGreat thread EF as usual, any idea about next time?
>>36283792Fuck off back to /d/This is not a smut quest, fucking smutfags ruin everything.
>>36283801Karas a cute.>>36283816>Exaltedfag>Doing a second threadYou are also cute anon.
>>36283804>>36283820What are you people on? Why does getting a bara lunar husbando mean he can only fuck dudes?Everyone else in the family is bi too.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36283813No, getting fucked by triple digits of questionably-sanitary people in one night is disgusting.Getting your ass plowed by your hunky homosexual life partner is just romantic.And yes, now I am just doing it to upset you, nerd.
>>36283792I'm really glad that EF is the author of this story and knows what he's doing instead of you at the helm of this.Fuck off with that shit already.
>>36283804I don't think anyone is suggesting he's just going to be gay, at least I'm not, I just like the idea of Karas and Talon being a thing
>>36283839I personally object to him being a bottom rather than him having a Lunar husbando. It's worked out Okay for us, aside from the occasional hiccup.
I love how those "igitt gay people" fags are probably the same guys that defend Makas sluttiness all the time, because of their hilarious phobias.>"Its only okay if its my fetish"
>>36283841>And yes, now I am just doing it to upset you, nerd.I don't care one way or the other, but now you're deliberately trying to sabotage and shit up the quest and it's threads.Would you just stop already?
>>36283852>I personally object to him being a bottom rather than him having a Lunar husbandoI don't see how those would be mutually exclusive. We switch with Tia too.A bara husbando doesn't need to be a top.
>>36283858How is someone talking about what they like to happen sabotaging the thread?People do it all the time, its part of the point.
>>36283535What the fuck, OP, this just went full magical realm. Are we going to have pregnant babies inside us from how much romping around we do?I mean, that sweet railroading into pregnancy? Fuck me, that's funny.> >(Other)You have to get Tia pregnant now so that we're both having babies. Since I can't, you're the next closest thing.There are no breaks on this rape train.
>>36283854I personally am laughing at all you defensive idiots getting baited hard. Are you really this new, or is it some childhood trauma you are unconsciously suppressing?
>>36283304>"I just loved you more.">"...More than what?">"More than the medicine you took.">"More than the med- Tia, the medicine is an inanimate object. It doesn't feel love.">"Exactly."Best lines, reminds me of tales of MU
Base: 2 xpCongratulations bonus: +1 xpBringing you at a total of 4 xp.Since it's still a bit early, a reminder: my twitter is @exaltedfag and I usually try to inform of threads with a few hours / half a day of warning, as well as posting a link to a thread when I start one. My schedule is shot to hell and back, so I might have to cancel a planned thread or spring one on you unexpectedly.If you have any question (possibly quest-related, I might talk about other stuff if you want but up to a limit), I have an ask.fm at http://ask.fm/Exaltedfag.And I sometimes show up on Rizon IRC, on #qmc.Also, all extra material for this quest made by you (drawfags, writefags, etc) will be rewarded with some extra XP for Maka, or the ability to make requests.
>>36283852I object to these faggots immediately just disregarding everything, ceasing trying to remain in character and just going on and on about how they want him to take it up the ass forever and ever.Play the fucking quest for fucks sake, if you want to erp, go fuck off to /soc/ but don't shit up these threads
>>36283868>>36283708 Specifically mentioned him bottoming.A dawn should only be bottoming when they choose to.We're a Zenith, we have Resistance, we're good at being the sub.
>>36283834> Railroaded into pregnancy from all the sex we've been having> Not a smut questI think you have some misconceptions there.
>>36283878>defensive idiotsWhat? I think I lost you.If anyone is defensive its the people going "b-but Karas can't fuck dudes, its not allowed!"
>>36283854Fuck you, Tia is my fetish in this quest. I don't care for the festival, but bara is as bad as guro.
>>36283801>"Yes, yes she can, and no, no you can't show him, Tia. At least wait a bit.">She makes a sad face.Pffft HAHAHAHAHAHA lost it. We need to have Tia shapeshift-flirt with Karas just to fuck with him.Thanks for running, EF. Great thread as always. 500 posts in 6 hours. Wow. For /tg/ that's pretty big.
>>36283858>speculation about sex in exalted>sabotage and shit upI'm not even him, but come on, even if its not your fetish, let the votes decide when/if exaltedfag putes it to a vote, rather than screaming about people shitting all over your fun
>>36283854I just hate all of them for trying to cram out of character smut into the quest just because they think its funny or they personally want it, if they want that they should go to the appropriate boards for that, this is not it.
>>36283813We already had incest, we fucked the queen & her daughter at the same time.Amata was all like "Meh, I've done/seen worse".
>>36283887>how they want him to take it up the ass forever and everNo onje says that, you're just being a bit too defensive here anon.And people talk about what fetishes they waant maka to play out all the time too.
>>36283894I was agreeing with you
>>36283876He's actively shitposting anon, and he's admitted to it.Ironic shitposting is still shitposting.
>>36283910>we fucked the queen & her daughter at the same time.We fucked the Quuen, her daughter, and her son at the same time.Get your insectual facts straight anon.
>>36283903>cramming smut into this questThat complaint is a bit late don't you think?
>>36283900Or just start an argument about whether or not more/better trained troops on the Gloria would have helped.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36283886Just two or three sessions more until we can buy a charm that our Zenith 5 unlocked.
>>36283919>insectualincestual I mean
>>36283933When Tia is around, it's all up for gropes.
>>36283893>railroadedhahahahahahahahayou, you are funnybut seriously autist, go dig a hole in a frozen lake and sit in it
>>36283917I gotta admit though, his baiting is great.Seeing the people that constantly defend triple digit orgies as complety normal and "don't be so puritanian", flip out because penises might be touching is hilarious.
>>36283914>No onje says thatExcept for those who literally said that, in this very thread, several times.
>>36283886Thanks for the thread EF, enjoyed the surprise
>>36283919we fucked Amata and Irene together before we brought Samiel into things
>>36283954No one ever said he can only ever fuck dudes.They said get a lunar husbando, no one else around here is monogamous.
>>36283951BUT PENISES TOUCHING IS WEIRDDD
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36283943>>36283893>railroadedAt least EF is not throwing a giant green bull at us.His is from a exalted pregenerated adventure called "A disease of an evil conscence" before you ask
>>36283954>speculationNot him, but get some thicker skin, and a firmer grasp of the English language
>>36283954They were talking about his Lunar husbando specifically, Karas can fuck as many girls as he wantsI actually also want him to bang Vale too now that I think about it
>>36283951You know I bet the same people who flipped out about the orgy are also pushing for the buttsex, don't go making assumptions anon, because when you do, you're a faggot.
>>36283987I just want someone nice and sensitive for poor Samiel. Girls scare him The faggot
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36283987We should get Karas and Valeriana together.I am sure they will make a great couple.
>>36283877Someone post the ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES!?!?! picture. It has never been more appropriate
>>36283995>pushing for buttsexIts intensly obvious baiting anon. They are just making fun of the slutfags. I know because I don't give a shit about yaoi and still enjoy posting it for that reason
>>36283893>RailroadedActions having consequences is NOT the same thing as 'railroading'. If you're too stupid to understand that, you need to leave /tg/ and never come back, and strongly consider suicide, because you're clearly too stupid to contribute to society or live a meaningful life.
>>36284017>Actions having consequencesTo be fair, maiden tea can mechanically not fail at its purpose, so handwaving it as "it just didn't work" is pretty much railroading.
>>36283997I'm not sure I can say that I like Karas overmuch, to tell the truth. He seems to me to be just an overgrown manchild, who just happens to possess near unlimited power. He's really going to have to pick up his game if he's going to get any respect from me.
>>36284021And only one single lonely pathetic anon lost his ass about it.
>>36284017It is though, all jokles I made about flushing out aside, if you just make something work different for the sake of making something happen that otherwise couldn't, then that is pretty much railroading.I don't personally mind, but it is.
>>36284027His behavior reminds me of Tia when we first met her.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36284021>maiden tea can mechanically not failIn the same way swords don't break, maybe. Anything short of artifacts and exalted charms can break/fail whenever it's dramatically appropriate and whenever artifacts/exalted charms bump into it.
>>36284017I'm sorry, but what did you expect when our magical lunar husbando shoved gallons of semen down our tubes? "Welp this naturally occuring tea is fullproof, no way has birth control ever failed."
>>36284021I'm fairly certain that there are Fae, Lunar, and Shaping powers that can bypass it. Possibly also some run-arounds with First Age artifacts, Craft:Genesis, and some demonic powers.
>>36284034>In the same way swords don't break, maybe.There are mechanics for breaking swords though.Its not really the same thing. Its hardly the fiurst time EF took liberties with the setting to make things he wants happen or explain them, which is his prerogitive, you can't really use the exalted setting as written, but tits still handwaving.
>>36284034And remember, Tia's been experimented on by that crazy-ass guy whose name I've forgotten because I've barely touched my exalted folder in two years, so she's going to have all sorts of surprises
>>36284053She explicitly didn't use any though.If we would have had time to shadowrun about the parentage more, I woulkd have suggested our fae at some point, because wyld influence would be the most likely explanation.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36284021I'm betting it was actually something in the Wyld that nullified the tea. Probably that fae cunt we murdered. I expect he intended to be the one to knock us up.And yes, Shaping magic ABSOLUTELY IS a mechanically-viable way to nullify literally anything mundane.
>>36284069well we did use Silk as a condom...
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36284053>First Age artifactsYea
>>36284072We got pregnant before entering the wyld.> It would have taken another four months or so to notice otherwise. So yes, it probably happened just after you two met for the first time.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36284088The Wyld was less than a week after we first met. So 'just after' works perfectly for that.
>>36284074So our kids are part Fae?Anyway, I haven't seen the most important topic of discussion, might be because I just got here to please point it out if I missed it. Now that Tia has successfully knocked us up, what's our plan to return the favor?
>>36284083Exalted, no sense of right or wrong.
>>36284102See>>36284083Neomah are another possibility, and there is some fertility deities we could talk to.
I just like the idea that Maka is such a turboslut that it's virtually impossible to NOT knock her up.
>>36284096In which case it wouldn't be guaranteed its Tias babies.Could be a last laugh of that fae guy.
>>36284083>not the god of he mountain, but the physical mountain itselfFirst Age Solars were alright, except for the whole everything else of courseIf we get this then we could literally have a threesome with Smoke and her volcano, or flow and the ocean, or Silk and the WyldI want this super bad
>>36284137I prefer Silk But lets be real, EF is not going to stir that shitstom of it not being Tias, funny as it would be
>>36284102Tia has a charm/trick where she can give us shapeshifting.So we can dick the Tia
>>36284149'funny' hah yeah...
>>36284163I don't see a huge issue for it being Silks. I mean, Tia would just take up the challenge.
Hey, could someone post a picture of Tianna? I'm trying to figure out whether there's a safe lava flow path to expand the island if we cause dancing to erupt again.
>>36284174Anon, the shitstorms would consume these threads for weeksdon't joke about the babbies not being Tia's
When was the last time we checked in on our pet fae?
>>36284185Nah, not if its Silks.Now if its were from the triple digits ...That'd be a sight.
>>36284179Here's a hex map
>>36284185Shitstorms already consume these threads.
>>36284193The only other persons I can imagine it being okay would be Amata's.But its Tia's so all is well.
>>36284205That reminds me, we need to knock up Amata too.And Irene.
>>36284195Nah anon, those are just arguments and they consume about 100 posts before we all move on.Trust me, I've experienced everything on the fecal shower scale except for the only-conceptual level 10
>>36284193Anon, do you know what I'd do if Maka's children were the result of the orgy? I would be aroused.
>>36284233 You're not the only one
>>36284233Why do you think I voted for the orgy back then?
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36284150>Tia has a charm/trick where she can give us shapeshifting.No, she doesn't. She might be able to eventually learn one, but she doesn't know it any more than we know Medicine charms.
>>36284256You voted for the orgy on the off chance that Maka would get knocked with a random stranger's kids?If so, I like the way you think.
>>36284282oh? I recall anons talking about her having one
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36284296They were talking about Lunars as a whole having one, and trying to convince her to learn it.The problem is, it could easily require three fucking prerequisite charms. It could be an insanely heavy investment. And she definitely doesn't already have it. She's a combat-specced exalt; that kind of thing would be a huge deviation from where she's trying to specialize.
>>36284296I've brought it up, but just in the sense of her being able to get one, she also mentioned the possibility way back when we first met her, but I think that was before EF finalized her stat sheet
>>36284296She mentioned, briefly, that there was a way to give us something resembling Twin Faced Hero, and asked if we wanted her to look into it.
>>36284320>and asked if we wanted her to look into it.Yes, we want her to look into it.>>36284311It's Tia anon, there is no 'specialization', just Tia
The only railroading was not being able to choose the father. if it's indeed Tia's, i will be sad.
>>36284296>"...What?" You take one step back, taken completely by surprise by her statement.>Talon takes a deep sigh and massages his eyes, with the look of someone who is used to dealing with this sort of stuff, or at least expected to. "Oh boy.">Tia turns to you, apparently confused by your lack of approval. "...Do you prefer to be the husband? We can arrange it."She said this way back when we first met her, but I think this was before Exaltedfag had fully decided on a full stat sheet
>>36284311>The problem is, it could easily require three fucking prerequisite charmsLunars blood shaping technique only requires Prey's skin disguise, which Tia already has.
Rolled 9 (1d10)I don't want Tia to get pregnant. Not until we've given birth, at the very least. We're already vulnerable enough as it is now that we know we're pregnant. Imagine how much shit-kicking ability our group will lose if Tia has to be cautious too. I want to be able to rely on her to protect us while we're pregnant, instead of both of us having to stay out of harm's way.
>>36284407Then we get Amata pregnant first, as test run.
>>36284407I'm all for waiting to pop out these babies first before knocking her up.Man I can't wait to dote on her so hard.
Just so everyone knows, I am working on Silk being bored: The Sidestory, though its not finished. It will be from Talon's perspective (because getting into a fae's head causes San damage) and will explore a certain bit of fair folk lore. Or it will just be silk messing with Talon and making him see things that aren't real because she's bored. Depends on if Exaltedfag agrees with my interpretation
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36284932What request are you going to make, XP?
>>36284932That's sounds kind of fun actually, can't wait to see it
>>36284964Not sure, maybe the armor of FEELS. Or getting todesign some of Silks behemoths
>>36285024>the armor of FEELSAre they lewd feels? because that would be pretty OP in this quest.
10/10 thread of the year
>>36284932Would going into the Wyld to visit Silk while pregnant affect the babies in a negative fashion? Are they protected if we use Integrity-Protecting Prana?
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36286486>Would going into the Wyld to visit Silk while pregnant affect the babies in a negative fashion?Maybe, but probably not, since we have Silk's protection.>Are they protected if we use Integrity-Protecting Prana?Yes, until the umbilical cord is cut, they're parts of our body, not truly independent beings for the purposes of such charms. They're also protected by our Exalted Constitution, instead of being fragile things prone to miscarriage. That is, without a doubt, the only reason getting a ship dropped on us didn't make us lose the babies.
