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
>>36314108>Dran lost his triphillariousmeanwhile preparing for suffering
-[Elsewhere]-Metal thing rumbles, a prison on circles growling down black road. Me eyes heavy, dreamtime come and go. Nice smell. Me sisters close. Warm feel. Dreams come...Me eyes open for the first time, bright lights, everything slow. Ghost-cage keep me here, air come through mask. Annoying, me take off. Men outside, cage opens and me jump out. Arms ans legs clumsy, me hit the floor and cry loud. Hands touch and me bite them. No blood, hand real hard, taste bad and notgood. Me cry again when they grab feet. Me want mommy. Me want sisters.Hand show redfood, me stop crying and bite for good taste. Man says “Good Girl.” Other man says, “Good Monster.” They chucklelaugh. Mom taught me words. Me good girl, me know. What is monster?Me ask, but no words come out, just more cry.…
>>36314204Me with other sisters now. Two others, we cuddle-sleep together. It warm and safe until commander-sir comes and call me name. Me wake up and follow him down hall. Me go through door. Commander-sir say sit and me do. Takes off muzzle-bit and me try to ask question, he frown at me cry.Me just want to know what me here for.Commander-sir give shot like fix-sisters and leave. Me feel warm, hot, angry. Heart beast fast and everything start to get real slow. Door open and me smell something bad. Me run out real fast to find bad smell.Dark light, me angry. Very angry. See something moving, dangerous bad. Me yell for it to go. It yell back. Me get angrier.Voice says “Hurt them, bad.”Me heart pound in ears and me run at bad thing. Me use burn-touch to hurt and it screams. It bite me and me scream back, grab it head and burn-touch hard. It thrash, squirm, scratch at me back. Me throw it away to make hurt stop. It roll, and make bad-cry. Me growl low and it jump, but me faster and use hands as more feet. It miss and me spin, jump at it back and burn-touch its eyes.It bad-cry again, and me yell at it to be quiet. No words, just screaming come out.Me stop being angry-mad and me look at bad thing. It has hair like sisters, but no eyes anymore. Me try to shake her, tell sister to wake up. But still no words come out.Me shake her again. Sister wake up.
>>36314227 Door open and me ask man for help. Man say, “Be quiet.”Another say, “Well, C XII won again. Here's your fifty.”Me cry again for man to help.“Easy there.” The man say, “Easy. We'll get a Hydra to fix you up.”Me cry again and shake sister. Not me. Fix sister. Please. Me try to tell them. Me want to speak but no words, just sad-whimper.“Fucking hounds. We need to get some blockers for this one.”“An older generation huh? They're prone to heart attacks, right?”“One of the reasons we need to dose 'em with blockers when they freak like this.” The men leave and me stare at sister. What are blockers? Me don't know that. Me ask sister, and me mouth make noise croak. Sister still no wake up. Why me do this to sister? Me only angry.Hydra-sister come in. Smell nice, good. Me shake sleeping sister. Please fix. Hydra-sister put arms around me. She say real soft and gentle, “It's okay. I'll make the bad feeling go away. Just keep waiting, it'll all be okay someday.”Me cry. What okay? Me do not have bad feeling. Me want sister to wake up! Me feel stabby from Hydra sister, they do that to fix. Me eyes heavy, and me go to sleep again.…
>>36314245Me wake up, look at sisters so close, not still-sleep. Bad dreams. Why me have them?Me miss mommy dreams. Me blink and feel face-wet. Dry face with arm, man look at me, funny look.He stand up, why it take men so long to move. They so slow. He talk to other man, “Sir, I think that one was crying?”“Don' worry 'bout that right now, we have a pressing issue from the Field Museum. Overs back at base say that there's a lil' somethin' goin' on over there.”“Christ almighty, I went there just last week... It's not another appearance of that monster from Millenium is it? I saw the feeds for that during debrief... Chicago's going to hell, isn't it?”“Oui,might be indeed. First that monster in Millennium, now all these people transforming into black-eyed demons... Those don't even measure to what's happening overseas.” The man talking lights a stick, it glow with hot-red, “Faced a damned Djinn over in the middle east, fuckin' spirit took offense to my wanting it to stop butchering soldiers. Made it eat magic lead.”“Is that how you awakened, sir? I heard you were in California during Ground Zero of the first follower's attack.”
>>36314274“Sure was, mon ami. Helped kill that fucker Susej.”“Is it true that he's dead? The follower's haven't weakened much, right?”The older soldier with the soft-talk voice says, “They have faith that this man will return from death. They are waiting, and fighting.”Waiting. Me waiting for something. Me sisters wait too. What faith? Do me have faith too?Man look at me, “Staff Sergeant? That one's staring.”“Pay 'em no mind man.”“Where do they come from anyway?”“Don't go ask'n questions you dun want th' answers to.”“Yes sir...”Metal thing stop rumbling, me feel it come to stop.The Senior Soldier talks into a phone, “This is Staff Sergeant Moreau to central command, we are in position to contain and quarantine the problem area.”Me bindings undone, and me jump out if metal thing with sisters. Bright-light make it hard to see. Men put things on us so we can see. It much better.We ready, getting mad-angry.Looking for my 4chan pass...
Oh. Looks like Ferrokinetic army man is a complete bastard.Awesome.
>>36314368>Oh. Looks like Ferrokinetic army man is a complete bastard.Wasn't that guy an ally in Overhuman Quest: Petre Lupei?
>>36314387He was fighting Followers, and Petre was fighting Followers, so yeah.
>>36314335Dammit, Dran. I already felt guilty enough about killing the clones...
>>36314368What makes him a complete bastard?
Overwatch doesn't know Asher is responsible for the Ragebeast?
>>36314450He's participating in the clone fighting ring and he knows that they aren't just dumb animals.
>>36314460No, that wasn't him. Was another guy.
>>36314108Updated with most current known info.>Asher's pastehttp://pastebin.com/iKjMCE6n>Summons and Contractshttp://pastebin.com/RGVeLgA6
>>36314477You know that we're still going to blow him up , right?
Just gonna post this here for anyone that doesn't frequent the ask.http://ask.fm/Dranzy/answer/120313489182
Hey Dran you sorta put the Summons&Contracts paste as Asher's sheet.
>>36314477Part of me wants to through the "Don't ask questions you don't want the answers for" line back in his face somehow. But then I remember that Asher is almost certainly more of a bastard than this guy is, so it would lose a lot of the punch.
>>36314549We should definitely try to go full fae by the portal. Dran says we can shape-shift out of any faggy form we might get from it
>>36314549If we had stayed at the tree we would have been curbstomped by the templars because we didn't convince ZG to defend the portal
>>36314587Base form isn't even that bad. It's just Asher like he was when he was a kid but with nicer hair and plant parts on him.People freaked out because some asshole went and edited a shitty tumblr pic of some chick to look like Asher and everyone thought that was what Asher actually looks like.
>>36314108>Asher's Sheet>>http://pastebin.com/kmsL31FPThat's the summons paste. Should probably fix that.
We realy need to look into a mirror.I want to know how our regenerated eye looks
Sunnuvabitch I can't get my pass to reset and the old ones aren't working.Whatever, getting that next post.
So I guess the "important thing that Xix would want to do once she gets the familiarization intelligence buff" is make it so the other clones aren't stuck in this fucked up situation.
>>36314592We don't have to stay right by the portal. This thing is going to be faeifying shit for miles around it unless someone comes up and throws down some wards to stop it.Just standing around like we are now would be doing it if Asher didn't have those mummy wards on him.
Why do I have the strange feeling that some horribly botched spell of Asher is going to revive Susej.
>>36314885Yeah but the vote was saying "I'm staying here"
>>36314902Because it's just the kind of hilarious salt-in-the-wound tweest that Dran would pull.I don't think it's going to happen though. Asher's too shit to pull something like that off by accident.
>>36314885I say we have those wards removed asap
>>36314946>Asher's too shit to pull something like that off by accident.Ass-mad-INuff said
>>36314946>salt-in-the-wound tweestStill waiting to see how we end up killing Xix one day.
>>36314902I can already see Saph's reaction>You revived WHO?
>>36314969Only worked because Lucifer had promoted him up to vital-plan-piece.She should have fucking told us about that before suddenly dropping a surprise Fallen Angel on us. The entirety of threads 8-8.5 was a great example of what happens when communication breaks down between supposed allies.
>>36314335>already wanted to protect xix's smile>thisI hope asher knows some knockout gas type chemicals, because I really don't wanna kill the clones.
>>36315043It's not like we can take them all prisoner though
>>36315043Now is realy not the time to use non-lethal combat methods
>>36315043I don't like it, but we can't really do non-lethal here...
>>36315054It would be pretty adorable. Send them all to Tir na Nog? I wish Q_Q
>>36315153We could get emilia to have Gaia hold on to them.Gaia seems capable of that
>>36314764How long is that post taking? Didn't type it out beforehand?
>Asher doesn't have Divination anymore>The clone fighting ring is pure metaknowledge>Asher himself still thinks that most of them are mindless monstersIt's going to take Xix saying something after the familiarization happens before he decides to go for operation clone freedom.
>>36315043>implying they're not gonna be gruesomely torn apart by our mines
>>36315208>implying Asher won't smile when he sees the mines working perfectlyDran is truly evil
>>36315191If you want to act nonlethaly, I'll make it a retroactive request by XIX during timeskip. Up to you guys.It'll change the course of the future encounter with Echidna a bit.
>>36315191>Asher doesn't have Divination anymoreWhy?
>>36315290We can't act non-lethaly in this situation so better not retcon it.
>>36315293Because that was part of Lucifer Pyromancy. That got torn out and replaced with RAGE BEAST XTREME DAMAGE Pyromancy.
>>36315290Could you also say that during prep, we grew some grass/trees/plants up larger to use as things to tie em up with?
>>36315290Well we know like two ways of non-lethal, smothering them with non-oxygen, kinda easy actually, and knockout has chemicals that asher doesn't know enough of to be helpful
>>36314108Hey Dran, will you begin AoPH again someday?
>>36315290Does Asher really have any non-lethal ways of taking someone out of the fight? I would like to not kill them if possible, but I'm not so much of a bleeding heart that I would severely handicap myself.
>>36315290How would we even fight nonlethally though? We would have to just leave it to the others
Asher knows one transmutation that makes knockout gas. Unfortunately, that gas is also highly flammable and explosive to some degree.The other option is binding them in stone or plant matter.
>>36315290At the very best we would have to summon a new summon purely for capturing enemiesAnd doing quick contracts would be death
>>36315368>>36315367Asher has Geokinesis and Floramancy. There's grass that can be rapidly grown and used as woven bindings, or the ground itself to bury them.
>>36314335Light harasses the field, turning the grass into emerald shadows obscured by the high-powered glare of the trucks' first armaments. You're forced to wince, cry and turn away, retreating inside like a vampire in fear of the light. From their angle, they'd just get a clear shot on you, and from yours? All you can bear witness to in this world and the other is a wall nothing short of an artificial, non-magical ward.Saph calls out to you as she keeps to the shadows, the blazing glare pouring in through the windows, “They're setting up a perimeter?”“Sure as shit! I set mines out there, but I won't be able to pick which to detonate so long as those floodlights are there.”“No shadows either. Needs to be fixed.” Tony comments from down the hall.There's a haggard laugh, “A false light of Ra.” Noite looks to another mummy, a young woman with raven-black hair and nigh yellow eyes. There's a smile across his dry cracking lips even as they reform and replenish themselves. “I may be able to do something unless The Asher has something in mind...”You figure, with the nitro set, all of it going off at once could generate a smokescreen. Alternatively, Emilia could shoot it or you could let Noite do whatever he has in mind. Smokescreen would be just as blinding, but you could command the blown up soil. Ruin their advantage...
>>36315410Fuck I don't know.Roll a d2 or something I'm ok with both
>>36315410Haven't we established we are shit at that though?
>>36315410Okay let's do that I guess. Use vines to pull them into the ground with the head exposed away from the mines
>>36315396Fae can do stuff like that, and we did just open a portal to TNN.Not like we need to worry about contracts with them right now anyway. They fucking love us.
>>36315433Is that a vote?
>>36315433“What do you have in mind?” You call up to the ancient man.His smile stretches wider as do his eyes as he claps a hand upon the shoulder of the young woman, her own expression hidden by remaining bandages. “Ai here, will battle with the false light.”The Egyptian woman bows her head, looking towards the entrance hall as if the foes were already at the door.> Mass detonation.> Emilia's got this.> Let the Mummies handle it.> (Other)I originally planned for XII to get blown up by a fiend from Asher at the end of that thing. In the middle of writing it I felt it a wasted opportunity, so I omitted that.
>>36315482> Let the Mummies handle it.Also you're an evil fucking bastard but should have done that.Would have created more impact
>>36315482I pray that "battle with the false light" doesn't mean "wander into the minefield".
>>36315482> Let the Mummies handle it.Ask the mummy to remove the ward protecting us from becoming fae
>>36315410Ok, I'm fine with giving it a shot. We can try non-lethal up to the point where we need to pull out the big guns. Spare as many as we can. Maybe earn some Honor Points with Legna for not murdering childern?>>36315482> Let the Mummies handle it.I want to see this shit.
>>36315512She's probably gonna battle the light with light, but hers will be old magic+Ra's blessingShe should be good
>>36315445They fuck us over if we don't make a contract.Hell you guys probably don't know how fae marriages end.
>>36315559Now I'm worried, enlighten me anon, how fucked are we
>>36315482> Let the Mummies handle it.For what do we have the oldest old-magic guys around as reinforcement?
>>36315559Contracts aren't as important with summons that aren't evil jackasses.And we have advantage with the seelie right now because they would consider it rude to fuck us over after opening the door.Dran's already confirmed multiple times that the sentiments you're currently expressing are misplaced and unfounded.
Vote here:>Lethal tactics vs clones.>Nonlethal tactics vs clones
>>36315663>Nonlethal tactics vs clones
>>36315663>Lethal tactics vs clones.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>363156631 lethal2 non-lethalay
>>36315663>Nonlethal tactics vs clonesWhen viable, don't risk it all on this, we can't afford to lose right now
>>36315721Just the clones, though. Fuck those other guys.
>>36315625Because fae are fickle. They rarely have lasting marriages so they usually end in one of two ways.1.) The husband is fucked over by the wife or2.) The wive leaves the husband.
>>36315663>Lethal tactics vs clones.Fuck we can't afford to lose troops to the clones.Maybe use non-lethal when possible
>>36315663>Nonlethal tactics vs clonesGotta protect that smile
>>36315750Meli and emilia running off together when?
Wow, 7 posters and 7 votes. I'm pleasantly surprised by the lack of same-fagging!
>>36315793Ya want me to samefag a bit?
>>36315663Clarifying on >>36315685I would like to use non-lethal where possible, but I don't want to completely preclude lethality if it appears necessary.I don't want to vote for nonlethal and then have Asher trying to tie a clone up while it gnaws off his ass.
>>36315805>Implying you aren't me.
>>36315793Of course, we over human players always have excellent morals
>>36315793I wonder how many people were here during the Asmadei thread. I wouldn't be surprised if we lost a bunch of people from that, but there's no way we had 40+ to start with.
I wonder how the templars are going to look
>>36315881I'm expecting the AngelBone.
>>36315881I had an image of one that was going to give everyone a lot of trouble, but I lost it.Nonlethal has it, though Asher will kill for self-preservation.
>>36315881Have you guys heard of the Knights Templar cartel? Mexico must be so fucked up in the Oververse
>>36315909If we throw enough proto-angels/light elves at him will he die?
>>36315920Was it an image that a player sent you or one that you found yourself? I have it if it was the former
>>36315927Dude it's probably nowhere near India or Europe.I mean in europe you have fucking everything.>Vatican>X-pagan faiths and old holy places>high population density
>>36315784Keep in mind that there are also several faerie with dangerous jealous streaks like the vali that would put Fara to shame.
>>36315979There's also the Nazi death camps and other places where fucktons of people died.Millennium park just had 3000 people die in it and anyone who goes there now gets mindbroken and set on fire. Europe is probably a hellhole.
>>36315966Templars have a lot of "holy warrior" figures.And I like Guildwars.
>>36316030I don't even want to know what the death-camps or gulags are doing to people who enter.
>>36316030>Europe is probably a hellhole.If you think that's bad wait until you see India.
>>36316030>muh six gorrilian
>>36316146Whether you think it's fictional or not is irrelevant. It did happen in Overhuman.
>>36316146You forgot dran is a bleeding heart liberal, of course the chosen people died in the trillions, why would you believe otherwise you dirty anti-Semitic goyim
>>36316268>>36316146I realy don't know how /pol/acks are able to read this quest
>>36316283It's fucking weird, isn't it?
>>36316299So, do I write softcore murderporn? Because I'm under the impression that I am.
>>36316321I don't even know, man.>inb4 "YOU WRITE SHITTY LIBERAL PROPAGANDA!!!"
>nonlethal wonYou guys do realize that you just won a fuckton of points with Emilia
>>36316362Emilia can die in a fire, I know who I did this for.
>>36316362That's fine with me.
Is Asher's plant arm glowing when he casts? Did the partial faeification affect his glow color at all? What the hell does his left eye look like?>questions Dran will never answer
>>36316362We might've actually just gotten ourselves kicked out of the Malevolence pillar. First thing Marcus said during the recruitment speech was that he will not accept anyone who cannot bring themself to kill.Guess we get to work for Eloc now. Or quit ZG entirely I guess.
>>36316362We wouldn't be free of her anyway, might as well do things we want to anyway, not like she changes the story in any GIANT way, she's just there to take up space and shit man
>>36316506There's a difference between "I can't kill" and "I'm choosing not to kill"Asher has shown time and time again he's quite ready to slaughter his enemy
>>36316537It would be realy strange if they kick out the guy who is responsible for the field of burning death for not killing people
>>36316321Dran, any way that we can go back on not being fae? Due to us looking into going Light with our Valkyrie and the bonuses I've changed my mind from being strongly anti-fae
>>36316696We just need to remove the protection rune the mummy gave us
>>36316558>Caused the deaths of 3000 people that weren't supposed to be killed>Refused to kill enemy combatantsEhh... It wouldn't really be that far-fetched. He's not averse to violence but he's not exactly good at the job either.It's like if you hire an artist to paint a portrait of your wife, but they keep painting her as a futa. Sure, he's technically a good artist, but you don't want the fucking futawife painting so you fire his dopey ass.
>>36316321I do like how you describe things. It's often pretty discreet, but conveys things pretty well. All the sex scenes, for instance, have been pretty tasteful, but still fappable.
>>36316696We might not be able to go fae now, but we will get other opportunities in the future.Spreading the acorns from the portal tree will make more faeified land. It probably wont be as strong as the portal tree itself, so we'll need to do several.
>>36316769>but still fappable.The Luci scenes were pretty awful half the time. Shit was unfappable and I still think that he was trying to make it as purposefully offputting as possible.
>>36316718I figured as much, still we need the opportunity to do so and I figured now was as good as any a time to ask dran to throw the option in
>>36316880>Pop an Ignorance ward in the middle of combat.>Pray that mummy ward breaks>Shit pants when it results in some kind of horrific magical clusterfuck that nearly kills us and summons Horus or some shit.
>>36316906>implying it doesn't revive Susej
>>36316919Throwing Susej at the Templar seems like a smart move
>>36316696http://ask.fm/Dranzy/answer/120160451102What do you think?
Is Dran asleep already?
>>36317004He's having to rewrite the clone murder spree.
>>36317004Still trying to fix my pass shit when I'm not writing. Almost done.
>>36317004>getting a blowjob from toothy while she rubs her bag of teeth on your nutsThe new standard.
>>36317120She lets him meet her parents. He lets her meet his questers. Sounds fair.
>>36315482 “Take care of it, we'll get ourselves ready for when and if they break in.”Saph looks over her shoulder, back at Echo, Emilia, and Tony, “We need to push them back and create our own perimeter outside. Between the fairies coming through, we should have enough to mount a proper defense if they realize they're being threatened.”You bite back something you want to say for a moment, but you feel that you should say it, “Restrain the clones if you can. If they don't have magic it's easy enough to halt them and Emilia or I can take care of the rest.”Saph gives you a sharp look. She nods slowly turning to the others again, “Take the clones prisoner. We hold out until the others arrive.” Back to you, she gives you a light touch on the shoulder, “We need to set up barricades, I'm borrowing your power over earth.”“What should I do?!” Echo calls out, from above, as she swings down from a pillar, claws of flame from her aura clinging to the marble, slowly streaks of red dragging as she comes down.“Get ready to engage if anything gets inside.” Saph says as she walks over to a column, gripping it and removing it from its base carefully to avoid severe structural error. Its surreal seeing such a small girl do that much. Emilia comes to your side, giving you a slight smile, her augmented eyes sparkling with a a subtle luster, “I'm glad you want to do that for XIX... If Marcus brings her do you think...”“Maybe. We need to get read-” Shots rip through the front doors, blasting them away and traveling to the back of the hall, obliterating the Tyrannosaurus skeleton before exiting with just as much force. You heard one shot fired. Who the fucking hell has that kind of firepower? An enemy nerve?
>>36317163 The marble column comes down as a sizeable barricade, crushing another exhibit. “Get behind it!” Saph yells and you're in no way going to argue the fact as you swap to Reflex mode and leap over the pillar with Echo and Emilia, Tony already on the other side. More shots rip through the front, tearing out a greater entrance. The pillar holds with support from You, Saph, and Emilia empowering it, the shots no longer carrying further this barricade. “They brought a powerhouse,” Saph whispers, “I recognize it too. If we recruited him then...”“Who?”“Ai! Go!” Noite commands and the mummy female descends dropping soundly from the balcony while the others weave glyphs in the air,”We will strengthen your shield. If you have the strength, use it to break them!”As the flood-lights pour in through the new holes, you feel the column's endurance increasing beyond even Zeitgeist's joint casting. “I can make the push alone, cover my flank!”“Do you even know what that means?” You shout back as more bursts of heavy gunfire punish the building. “It means watch my ass!” She screams at you as she digs in, pushing forward, forcing the pillar to be a sort of horizontal battering ram as her clothes shift to bulletproof mode. You don't think that even that could stop those rounds...
>>36317192Outside, an young Egyptian woman of well over five thousand years of age stands in front of a wave of dazzling light, her reformed eyes see it for what it is, artificial, a fake sun. The sky is an aurora and the sun god has turned his eye from the world. One of the metal rounds fly past her, slipping past her bandages, the barest touch tearing away her burial bindings. Force travels through her body, making her quake with anticipation. Her body is blasted away, yet she does not fear as her body's time still reverses itself, the mana imbued in the spell flowing backwards into her wound.Staring out to the blinding sea, she takes a breath, not with her lungs, but with her body and soul, in words known to all men, the tongue stolen by Abraham's God. “I devote my life to Bast, then and now, forever and more. A servant to her prophet, a servant to her prayer. To hunt the corruption, plague, and vermin. By her side, I will purr happily and save the people with the blood on my claws.By the mystic Nile, sacred river flowing with life.My hunt begins again.”Magic surges, the next round's force reduced to its true caliber and snatched from the air with a swift flick of the wrist. Her body flows with liquid black, the blessing of the Egyptian cat. Shadows across the fields only partially eliminated by the concurrent sources of light. Her pupils constrict, aided by drinking dark, the land returning to its true form by her sight alone. With a step, her eyes scan the field, picking up the traces of magical contamination, work that has been done.
>>36317264 The first shadow arrives and she slips past with a natural speed, they are not the enemy that Bast's servant hunts this night. The false Ra. Wicking past the metal pellets, moving them out of the way where they would otherwise catch her, she avoids the traces of contamination about the field and leaps for the light. With hands wrapped in clawed shadow, she tears into the light, cold fire erupting from her strike, unleashed from its prison and coiling through her body. She convulses as it surges through her. But she must stifle this scream. To know Bast is to know silence. Silence and fear.Yet pain is fresh in her mind and metal tears into her body. Her paw catches it as it leaves and she throws it to the other set of lights to release the false sun.Nursing injury, she leaps from the back of the metal chariot carrying the light into great buildings that nearly rival the glory of the pyramids. It is dark there and dark here now. Lick your wounds Ai, when they come, they will die....
>>36317264Holy shit. Echo dun good by recruiting these guys.
>>36317293hoooooolllllyyyyyy shitnormally, catgirls don't give me this kinda boner
I guess Ai is a Vein? Sounds like it.
>>36317293Oh hell yeah that was fucking awesome
>>36317293Well that was certainly unexpected
In retrospect, Ai should always be silent, I think that incantation should've been said by Noite.Thoughts?I'm working on the next part with ZG.
>>36317264>“I devote my life to Bast, then and now, forever and more. A servant to her prophet, a servant to her prayer. To hunt the corruption, plague, and vermin. By her side, I will purr happily and save the people with the blood on my claws.>By the mystic Nile, sacred river flowing with life.>My hunt begins again.”This really makes me want to prewrite an incantation for ragemode so that we don't end up with yet another middleschool metal garageband lyrics-tier incantation.
>>36317322>>36317329>>36317330>>36317351>>36317387You guys do realize alchemy was invented in Egypt.
>>36317432Or she would only speak when incantating something
>>36317468Yeah we should realy work on those
>>36317470Please tell me you're not about to start pushing to join up with the mummies...
>>36317468Well we could go full edgemancyThe waves of flames that I've unleashedWill eat us all aliveThe rage that burns within my heartIs uncontrolled and wildAnd now everything shall die!But than again I'm a Metalhead and those lyrics realy fit ragemode
>>36317501Why not? Thoth is one of the only two god who rule over alchemy the other being Hermes who's a complete.
>>36317563>The rage that burns within my heart>Is uncontrolled and wildThose lines should realy be in the incantation atleast>>36317432It would be best if she only speaks while doing an incantation and is otherwise completly silent
>>36317591First reason I don't want to go full-mummies is because I'm sick of flipflopping all the fucking time.Second reason is that they want to go back to Egypt, and I don't want to go to fucking Egypt.
>>36317591Better to stick with Faust for Alchemy. We don't need to go deal with Thoth or Herme's bullshit.
>>36317639Your loss. Faust barely knows even a fraction of what alchemy is actually capable so we'll always be limited if we only stick to him.
>>36317705I think the most important thing to do is finish our Fae-hood and not doublecross yet another faction in the process.
>>36317591No, we're limited because we can't stick with anything. This is the root of every single problem we've had in this quest. Asher can't stick to shit, and you want to go drop everything to run off to Egypt and join a group of mummies you know next to nothing about because one of them had a cool fight scene.You're being ridiculous.
>>36317746Meant to link to >>36317705not like it matters much since you're the same person.
>>36317741>Sticking with fae>The weakest and least trustworthy faction.Why are we working with them again?
>>36317432Hmmm...I've got a theme for a 'Fiend Ash' which would be a magical smokescreen we could view the battlefield through, needing pyromancy, aeromancy, and alchemy. A little edgy for my tastes, but the general idea is 'as war ends in death, flame ends in ash' that kinda deal.I'm having trouble refining it, but maybe one of you could take over for me?
>>36317867Fuck off already. We finally have a path to go down and we're not going to switch it up again on a whim.
>>36317867Because Asher's thing that he wants to do is magic forests everywhere or something.
>>36317925Then why not go with the kami or the Native American spirit. Why go with the weakest faction whose kryptonite iron? Serious iron is to fae as kryptonite is to superman.
>>36318113If you haven't noticed fae won't disintegrate on contact with Iron and we still control fire hot enough that Legna's steel melts if she goes to near
>>36318113Because people voted to go for fae instead of asking Saph / Gaia / Faust / anyone else for recommendations. They're the faction that Asher has the strongest ties to, most sway with, and though it hasn't been set in stone yet (mainly because of constant flipfloppers), fae/Arthurian/Celtic stuff seems to be the mythos area that he leans most towards anyway.Despite what you may think, you're not helping by trying to shake shit up at this stage.>weakest factionStop making shit up. Lying and wild speculation only makes your legitimate points look like bullshit too.
>>36317293 Emilia's roar echoes through the hall as she surges the column forward, driving it toward the entrance with everyone else keeping heads low, and behind the makeshift battering ram. The glyphs drawn by the mummies do well to deter the gunfire that's grown suspiciously quiet.The column collides the with the broken entrance, cementing into place a proper spot for holdout. The gunfire ends and the light's turned out.As your eyes adjust, black figures flip over the column, three altogether, a Cerberus unit, XIX's errant family, a mere couple yards from you. For a moment you hold your breath, mild terror at the suddenness of their arrival. They turn quickly and feign a lunge as you reflexively lash out with fire, the others circling around, Emilia and Saph quickly shifting their footing with Earth magic to force them to more wary behavior. The Cerberus dart back, appearing to give an opening, that Tony deigns to capitalize on. He's left remiss as a small smokebomb explodes, eating his own detonation.You hear Echo's laugh and the infantile yelling of one of the clones as you realize that Echo left everyone's side.The other clones hiss and growl, distracted by whatever Echo's doing.“More are coming!” Saph yells, and more rounds rip through the air above your heads, forcing you all to remain near-squat in cover. “Gunner's back!” You yell in return. Should we ward?”“No! The physical component means it can still kill you!”“I'll go out there!” Emilia says to Saph.“I know this guy, he'll blow you to hell if you go out, we just need to hold out for Marcus.”
>>36318308“What if I made the smokescreen, could we move in?”“Cover it in fire, Asher!”'Tony, Saph, Emilia, you get those clones, I don't trust Echo far as I can throw her!”You work out an incantation for a spell you'd had in mind for a while, you've seen it before in fantasy games. This should set off all the mines at least. “Legna, can you cover?”“Too strong, it'd shatter my shield in one blow.” “Fuck it then.”Taking a knee, you touch the back of your wooden hand and manipulate the grooves into a pentagram complete with a circle.“By the power of ash and flameWhere lands would burnI see no flower maimed.Burning rain from twilight's pageDonneth now the Seelie hourBless the land with primal rageAlight the land with moonborn fire!”The pentagram glows with a light unlike your usual, instead there is a a cyan blue brightening into a lilac gleam. You barely feel a thing compared to how powerful this spell was meant to be. It's as though... The world... Agrees?No, wait.You open your eyes, your astral eyes and you see faeries surrounding you all holding hands. There's at least fifty of them joined together. The spell...
>>36318204Do you even know what fae are? I'll tell you right now that iron is not an uncommon weakness for a spirit but no spirit is as vulnerable to iron as a fae and reason for that is that faeries are the lowest of low regarding spirits.
>>36318320This is going to be glorious
>>36318340Do you have a clue what is all considered part of the fair folk?
>>36318340You are being a ridiculous cunt and if I didn't know that there really were people in this quest as dumb as you're being, I'd just write you off as a troll.
>>36318320>lilacFuckin' purple, man. Every single time shit glows purple in this quest, things get weird.
>>36318408We are now officialy in the same category of fucked up as Marcus and Violett
>>36318320 Outside, the air distorts and lances of burning light come down like rain with silver light like the moon, a pallid prominence. They litter the grass, leaving the plants unharmed, yet setting the mines alight. The eruption the the explosives sends dirt and grass flying everywhere as the lances continue to rain down. One Staff Sergeant saw the spectacle as it began and erected an iron ward, welding mana together like a fortress and suffering as he resists the wide area attack to protect his allies. After losing clone soldiers to that fleeing shadow monster, he can't afford any more losses while waiting for backup. Even as the faerie light melts against the ward, he's already feeling the rounds he's been using to keep them pinned. Just a while longer...The explosions melt any chance he had of visual on the target. Time to play defense then. The grass upon the air floats with a stillness, taking on the lunar glow of the initial attack, pure mana enriching their individual and countless bodies. The hands of innumerable faeries of light each take a blade of grass in hand as they slip by the lunar lancets. The swarm makes the grass appear as though the grass has been given life to the mundane onlooker.Yet this would be the spell that the smallest faeries used to take up arms. With blades of grass, they could kill a man.
>>36318431And Tony and Gertrude.Though I think the purple had more to do with 50 fae group casting with us than it did any change to Asher himself.
>>36318371 I do but I also have read up about theosophy which puts them below regular spirits. Most fae are spirits of the dead rather the living which makes them vulnerable to a lot of thing other than iron.
>>36318320>>36318441So, making sure I'm reading this right; >we did some incantation>it glowed funny>surprise cast assistance from tons of fae>it makes silver fire rain down on the mines and the enemy forces>fae swarm out to shank niggas with grass blades.That right?
>>36318517I think it's still raining light/moon/fire lances
>>36318320>Donneth now the Seelie hourwot
>>36318628Not that Donneth
>>36318628It's just Asher being Gertrude's father again
>>36318628Conjucated form of "don," as in to put on or to assume. Essentialy, it's faerie time
If Asher had transmuted up a cloud of nitro or some sort of fuel above the enemy forces and then lit it, it would have made a shockwave that'd have likely killed them through the metal barriers.Instead he decided to rain pure mana flames on them.
>>36318320>you touch the back of your wooden hand and manipulate the grooves into a pentagram complete with a circle>The pentagram glows with a light unlike your usual, instead there is a a cyan blue brightening into a lilac gleam. This is exactly the kind of thing I was hoping he was gonna use the tree arm for.
>>36318441 Inside, you hear the explosions and see the burning lunar rain and stare on in awe even as Echo has her unseen battle with the clones, quickly pushing it to a close.“Did we do it?” Xera whispers, as one of the faeries of the circle.“Is it safe to come up?” Saph asks and you pass that to Legna.“Dirt clouds vision, but only for so long.” She answers back and you note that the sky is darkening, the pale lights of the city and the slivers outside being the only way to see at this point.You look up to the balcony and see the mummies moving back to their room. “Where are you going?”Noite turns back to look at you, “To prepare. Something dark comes this way. It is like a host of death itself. The most prominent threat is gone and I suggest you put up your strongest wards. We would do so, however it would halt the advance of your own ritual's progress.”The mummies withdraw for now and you take a moment to swallow hard. What the hell could be coming? Donneth? No, he's not that powerful. A host of death though? That sounds more like... The wyld hunt?“Well that sounds bad,” Tony smiles, his tone mismatching his words. It's like he's asking for it.Saph peers over top of the barricade, “If we rush them now, we could break through with all those faeries out there, They didn't put a time frame on what's coming though so, it's probably better to set up more here. I know some faerie runes I ma-” She catches herself, “I learned a while back. Asher, keep the the dirt in the air, Emilia, reseal the entrance with Marble.”
>>36318943>Something dark comes this way. It is like a host of death itself.Oh god it's Petre.
>>36318943 The two of you do as told, you keep the dust moving while Emilia plugs up the hole. With all the faeries inside that gunner won't be firing anymore bullshit for a while, The rain's stopped already, but the man doesn't shoot anymore, likely in the same box as you, awaiting reinforcements. He won't know about what's to come though.“I smell the death coming.” Legna whispers with a slight smile breaking her so often stoic features. “The unblessed have decided to make their move.”You feel the power of the Seelie intensify in the area as Saphira finishes her runes. “Done!” Yet it's not because of her. You feel something move and the ground peeling away as the tree continues its growth, pushing up through the ground of the hall. The skeleton of the tyrannosaurus that had lay fallen before begins to creep with errant mana, Emilia eyes it, knowing its power.The marbling of the floor is pushed away by the branches of the great tree, slowly but surely as it feeds from the milk of the ley line.>You have some time to prepare before the Seelie wave...> Check on Echo and the clones, you don't like it when you can't see that girl.> Set up to make use of the dino bones.

>>36318972> Set up to make use of the dino bones. Surely there's something...Also look in a fucking mirror.I want to know how our eye looks like
>>36318691He couldn't exactly do that because if he got direct LoS then Jacques would've popped his head like a grape. The rain attack was a completely random area attack.
>>36318943>I know some faerie runes I ma-" She catches herself, “I learned a while back. We really need to worm her backstory out of her at some point.>>36318972> Check on Echo and the clones, you don't like it when you can't see that girl.I /think/ we can trust Echo.

Or we could try to remove the ward the mummy put on us to attempt to go full-fae. Probably not the best ideas under current circumstances though.I think that I'd probably end up going for the dino thing.
>>36319110It seems more and more like Photokinesis wouldn't actually be a horrible investment.Being able to cast from around cover by bending the light to see at angles is valuable as fuck.
>>36318972>> Set up to make use of the dino bones. Surely there's something...
Going to the store real quick, expect to be back in like 10.>>36319139High-light is also something that Overwatch uses to keep Nerves from casting. They literally shine lights on nerves to keep them from casting accurately.
>>36318972>Create a summoning circle to bind a shade in, at least temporarily>Use this to magically call up Morgan La Fae"Yoooo there's some bitches comin to wreck mah shit. And then there's the templars, who are people that make Saph shit herself. So...can we work out an armistice until Overwatch is out of Chicago?"FUCK I LOST MY CONNECTION
>>36318972Remove the anti fae protection on ourselves. Maybe Saph could help if we can't figure it out. Or we could go to the mummy exhibit quickly
>>36319168Oh, for some reason I thought they only put that on themselves. Guess I forgot about it. If we can pull it off, we should.
>>36318972No matter what we do find a mirror.
>>36319168I'll support it if we can do it easily.I don't want to spend the entire action fucking around with the ward.
>>36319165>Armistice>between unseelie and seelieDude that's wishful thinking right there
>>36319165Dude, she left because Asher decided he wanted to ask the seelie to watch the forest for him.No way in hell she helps us here. If anything, she'd turn around and skullfuck us with one of the trex ribs the second she got a chance.
>>36319265If I remember correctly she left on good terms though.What anon wanted is still stupid though since Morgan is mostlikely somewhere in the UK
>>36319250It's not peace, it's just saying, "Uhm...these guys are kinda in the way. Let's just agree they're the bigger threat for now, and we can kill eachother after.">>36319265We left on good terms.>>36319280We'd be summoning a shade of her, or something similar. The equivalent of giving her a call.
>>36319311>>36319280Yes, she did part on good enough terms. I doubt that the feeling would remain constant if we yoinked her away from her England stuff she's working on to beg her to fight on our side against her better allies that she let loose.>We'd be summoning a shade of her, or something similar. The equivalent of giving her a call.It doesn't work that way.
>>36319311>We'd be summoning a shade of her, or something similar. The equivalent of giving her a call.But Morgan has absolutly no sway about the unseelie.
>>36319311This is a terrible idea. For one, the Templars will be completely indiscriminate and in the way, so there's no point to look like a stupid fuck doing this shit.
>>36319330Why not? What I'm trying is a smaller version of a portal to her, basically just letting light and sound go through and nothing else. Two-way scrying?>>36319338Wrong.>>36319341She can get the Wyld Hunt after overwatch instead of us. We can worry about them later.
>>36319372Dude that's a fucking horrible idea.The fae are set on war and just calling Morgan ain't going to stop them.
>>36319399They can war all they want.AFTER Overwatch is out of Chicago.
>>36319372It probably won't work, and even if it does establish contact it's like calling up some guy who let a bunch of psychotic prisoners out of their cage to attempt to get him to make them stop wrecking shit even though he has no authority over them.Your idea is bad. I don't know what else to tell you.
>>36319438There's nothing we can actually say or do here to change the situation, except to make sure our side makes it through the night on top. You have to understand this. Trying to ask the unseelie groups in the city to side with us is just going to make us look foolish.
>>36319463>Trying to ask the unseelie groups in the city to side with us is just going to make us look foolish.At best. The more likely result is that they take advantage of the stupidity and backstab us for maximum damage, or something else happens because Dran and several allies die.How this anon thinks that his plan has any merit is beyond me.
>mfw all this hate for this plan>mfw Dran is going to see this and be like "Naw, they're going to come to you on this shit, kek, ur rong"
>>36319612Naw, Unseelie and Seelie can't co-operate. It's da rules. They'd rather fight and lose a three way war than play with the idea of being on the same side. Right now they're both trying to occupy a similar area and as much as possible while it's still Samhain and the veil is at its thinnest.
>>36318972> (Other)Warn these motherfuckers that Donneth is a traitor.Tell them to not let their guard down around him. If they see him, kill him.
>>36319765Donneth isn't a traitor. He's doing exactly what was expected. Not to mention, it is known that our contracts were broken, thereby alleviating Donneth of his obligations to us.
>>36319712I'm out for this thread nearly seven am and I'm dead tired please try to not fuck everything up.being a european anon is suffering
>>36319793He's a traitor in the sense that he was our summon and now he's actively trying to kill us
>>36319793I almost said "Don't be pedantic for no reason", but then I remembered where I am.
>>36319793Alright, how 'bout this. "Donneth is a really, really fuckin scary assassin Unseelie knight thing, and he wants my head. If you see him, try to survive long enough to scream and point him out for the rest of us."
>>36319793And that has any bearing on whether or not we should inform Saph, Tony, Echo, and Emilia that he switched sides because...?
>>36319793>He was on our side>Our allies probably wouldn't immediately see him as an enemy if he were to appear>He's now trying to kill usIf you have a better word than "traitor" for this situation, let's hear it.
>>36319861An old friend, perhaps?
>>36319904Was that supposed to be a joke or something?
Sorry guys, I need to get going actually. Got some things that need taking care of.I'll run saturday, (My tomorrow) for about as long if not longer.I know there weren't a lot of votes, but I hope it was a good thread.
>>36320004Same start time?
I think this is probably the only quest where I'm upset by the QM saying that there could be 2 threads instead of 1 in a week.If his schedule allows him time to run multiple threads, Dran doesn't run multiple threads that can stand on their own. He instead takes the one thread that he had planned on doing and chops it up into two threads, maybe adding some bloat to them but even if he does they'll still end earlier than usual and add up to a whole less than the sum of its parts.
>>36320154We should be worried about Tony betraying us for the unseelie right? Since we can't cooperate
>>36320398Tony isn't unseelie fae.
>>36320004I actually wouldn't mind less votes if it means you can write more. I kind of like when QM's just draw from the general discussion and only call votes when there is a big branching point in the story.But yeah, the action was looking pretty good. Can't wait for tomorrow's thread!
>>36320154Hope you're pre-writing the next post based on this replies.Also I will find you and murder you if we don't know how Asher's eye looks after the next thread
Just noticed that the thread is missarchived.Missing the S2 in the title
Just some chemistry knowledge for players... Iron will ignite under heat + high oxygen concentration. We can make O2 with Alchemy, so that might be a good way to overcome our iron weakness.
>>36326662Doesn't pretty much everything ignite if you throw enough oxygen and heat at it?
>>36326702A lot of things, but only if they can form a stable oxide in the end. For a fire to be self sustaining, you need to get more energy out of the reaction than you put into it. Sand/glass won't ignite in high oxygen / high temp because it is already an oxide (SiO2) and reacting with more oxygen doesn't improved things.
>>36326662Isn't pure oxygen a drug?
>>36326662Shame Asher is shitbad at chemistry and Dran will just say no.
>>36327643It's just rusting... high intensity rusting.
