The fight should be over. And you didn't do a thing.You feel still groggy and light-headed, like you had the sleep of your life.You didn't. It wasn't a restful sleep. You had visions. You talked to the Sun in your dreams. Or maybe, you just dreamed about that, but, in any case, it wasn't a restful sleep. Bit by bit, as you wake up completely from the trance, you begin to feel tired again, as if you never had that nap in the first place.And, you wake up with more questions and doubts than you had when you dozed off. Amata is napping on a chair next to your bed, a red-and-white blanket thrown on her shoulders. She looks like she's really enjoying her sleep, her mouth half-open as she snores slightly.Your sixth sense (and also your stomach) tells you that it must be late evening. By now, the battle for Black Atoll should be over. The others should be back soon... If everything worked fine.You hope it did.> Just wait.

>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?

>>36500583Still at 3/5. Since you got kicked down to 0 Health, recovery is slower than normal healing.Think of it as a Quest-equivalent mechanic to Aggravated damage, if you know the tabletop rules.Also, I originally meant to have going to 0 Health and recovering leaving a permanent scar, even on the Exalted. It would normally happen, but the damage that took you down was mostly crushing and internal, leaving no scar.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36500569
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36500583I don't think it's gonna be a problem this thread but iirc we healed 1 point last thread.Assuming the whole sheet is unchanged from before and not just the xp we should be at 3/5 hp.

>>36500420>> Just wait. Try and get some actual, restful rest.The others are Exalts too. Most of them are more experienced than we are as well. They know what they're doing. And we promised Tia we wouldn't go anywhere until she got back.

Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36500768He DID get stabbed by five tails though so maybe he's gonna have a small scar where that action happened.
Tryong to not wake up Amata, you stand up from the bed. Your bones and muscles sting and ache, and for a moment you have the uncomfortable feeling of having tiny steel needles driven through your joints.You clench your teeth and leave that damn bed. Some of your bandages come undone: your skin is pink and fresh, and feels sensible and tingles in reaction to the exposure to the colder, fresh air around you. The healing salve Zaan used on those wounds has been completely absorbed, it seems.You still look like a patchwork of burn marks, but it's much less noticeable now: you're slowly returning, you imagine, to your normal, original, uniform coloration. Honestly, sometimes your own body scares you. Should you try tying back up your own bandages as they come undone, or remove them entirely? You should probably also get something to wear... and you have no idea what. All your stuff was on the Gloria.>Remove your bandages, they did their work. They're just getting in the way now.>You don't want Zaan or the others to yell at you.

You wrap yourself up in your blanket, feeling a shiver of artificial cold from your raw, exposed skin, and silently sneak out of the room without disturbing Amata.Closing the door behind you with slow, careful movements, you inspect your own bandages closer. Yeah, they're pretty dirty, but you have no idea where to find new ones, so you'll have to change them later. For now, you try and tie them back down in place to protect your burns.Mental + Twilight = 7 5 10 1 6 = 3 successesAfter fixing them in pretty much (you think) the same way they were before and are supposed to be, you take a walk around the ship's underdeck.This must be one of the vessels from Tianna's navy: you don't recognize it at all.It has a small hold and a few rooms (you suppose you've been put in the captain's room or something similar).If you remember correctly, this type of ship should be a galley, powered by a mix of sails and rowers. From one of the doors you hear some lively noises of people chatting and partying and playing games, so you suppose that that must be the rower's... room? (You're not sure what the real name of that section of ship is supposed to be. Seamen seem to have specific names for every small part of their ships.)On the other side, a stairwell leads, you presume, to the top deck.Also, no clothes to be found here.>Go where the rowers and the ship's crew are>Go upstairs

>>36500945The art is nice, but the addition of caste marks and golden bling would better show it's an 'Exalted' portrait.
>>36501197Kara's mark would be hidden by the hair, and I imagined this piece as 'What if they never left Gem?'Of course, this pic will have to be updated, if another of Maka's relative is found alive and rescued.
>>36500945>no pantiesMaka's gonna Maka.
>>36501197Quick, someone apply Lens Flare
>>36501209>'What if they never left Gem?'How is that interesting enough for you to commission artwork? Without Exalt elements it's a generic photo of two people, albeit scantly clad.
You enter the rower's room, and the conversations immediately fall silent as everyone turns to you.There are about a dozen seamen, all wearing some variation of Tianna's naval uniform. Which is not a particularly fancy thing, just consisting of a blue jacket with some white and black highlights. Some are dirty or torn, or had the sleeves removed or replaced. Some unbuttoned, some just shirtless or wearing something else and keeping the jacket draped on the shoulders or tied around the waist. Not a big show of uniformity, but you wouldn't expect that from a crew in a warzone. This isn't a naval review, after all.You used to think that galleys were all driven by slaves, but actually, Tianna (and a lot of other places) has professional seamen, which are also part of the crew, rotate between rowing and ship-handling, and act as marines during boarding and counter-boarding operations. These men, in fact, seem well-trained and are almost all armed with swords, cutlasses, axes and other small, portable melee weapons. Some have bits of armor on them, either chain or a breastplate, and a couple have helmets.Some were drinking, others were playing cards or just chatting. They seemed pretty relaxed, probably celebrating the victory (if you've won: they might know already, if Amata contacted the strike force while you were in trance), or just killing time and being happy they avoided the fight.These twelve men are too few to man every rowing space on the ship. You imagine this boat was left with a skeleton crew.>Ask if they have news>Ask to speak with the captain>Break the ice, mingle with the crew>Order them to set course for (Tianna/Black Atoll/where?)>(Other?)

>>36501374Why did we even leave it?

"...Sorry, I hope I'm not getting in the way." You apologize, entering the room. "Am I disturbing?""N- No, we, we weren't doing anything." They all seem a bit nervous, but the way you made your entrance made them more relaxed than they would otherwise be, being caught slacking off by their soon-to-be queen who is also an Exalted and an Anathema, and barely decent."It's alright, I have no idea what's going on." You smile at someone who seemed undecided whether to start hiding the cards and cash piled in front of him or not, and nod at him relaxedly. He loosens up a bit. "Is that Starseed or Startree?""Uh?" He looks down at the cards, taking him a moment to realize that you're talking to him. "Y- you know how to play Startree?""A little bit. I know three guys who play Scientific Startree on their time off." You sit down next to him, and the others in his small group shuffle a bit awkwardly to make space for you."Oh. Scientific Startree is for crazy people and professional gamblers... we just play Starseed. None of that extra-hands, extra-card-draws, passes-changing-direction-every-turn bullshit." For a moment he seems to worry that maybe he shouldn't have used a bad word in your presence, but he realizes he doesn't seem to mind. Everyone's handling you with gloves and walking on eggshells around you. Well, what can you do other than try and make them comfortable?"I don't have money on me anyway, so just keep playing and ignore me. I'm still learning the rules, I'll just watch for now."They nod, and slowly go back to playing normally. Someone hands you a small wooden cup full of rum. The atmosphere slowly turns back to lively."Any news from the strike force?" You try asking.(cont.)
"We lost the flagship." One of the players replies, somberly, as he draws a new card as his start-of-turn move. "The other ships are picking up survivors. Admiral Hazaakaa's still missing in action.""Queen Amata contacted them?" You ask."One of those barbarians with them is a Sorceror. He sent some kind of little messenger spirit to us with a report." Another one explains, evidently talking about Zaan. He gives you an odd look. "...Are you a Sorceror too?"The correct term should be "sorceress", but no sense correcting him. Instead, you shake your head. "I don't have the slightest idea how sorcery work myself."He throws down a good hand with a grin - three Elephants, all five Seasons and three Flowers, and the Eight Winds, and the others groan and throw their cards down. He sweeps in the handful of cowries on the plate."But, in general, it seems like the battle was won.""Man, I hope they murdered the FUCK out of the Lintha."You nod. "Can't argue with that.""Will we get a divvy of the loot even though we weren't there?""I'm not sure the others will get a share either. We're not pirates, Areen. Get that into your thick skull.""But maybe they'll get a bonus. What about us?""Well, on the other side, we didn't get shot at. I'm fine with it.">If Rajaan is still alive, he'll take care of it.

"If Rajan's fine, he'll handle it." You try and reassure them. "You did your job, and he'll keep it in mind, even if it wasn't a frontline job.""And if he isn't?""Well, then Queen Amata would become also commander of the fleet until she gives the commission to someone else. You won't be forgotten, in any case."You spend some time with the crew, downing a few drinks and learning how to play Statree and Starseed. The crew eventually warms up to you, not seeing you as some weird inhuman monster to be avoided. Which is nice.After a while, you return to your room. As you enter, you hear the last howling, energetic noises of Sorcery going off, and a glow of blue Essence hovering around Amata. Your sudden entrance startles her, so much that she actually trips and falls down face-first with a loud cry."...Amata?!" You rush in to try and help her back on her feet, but she stays down, face planted on the floor. You guess she must be really defenseless and unguarded while using her magic.You've never seen Amarta show you a weak side like this. She seems to realize how uncool that must have looked, you presume. She stays frozen on the ground, sighing."...Some on, stand up." You stifle a giggle.Bit by bit, the glow of magic around her disappears. "...That must have looked incredibly uncool." She wimpers, finally rolling around on her back and accepting your hand offered in assistance.You pull her up. "I won't say anything.""I... I don't like people seeing me when I use sorcery." She mumbles. "You caught me completely by surprise.""...Sorry. I wasn't thinking."

>>36502002There is one spell that does that.Well, and demon summoning.
>>36502002Raise the Puisant Sanctum, yet another reason to get our Twilight to finally learn some sorcery.Or we could just summon a bunch of demons. That always works.
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>36502050It always amuses me that "summon demons" is a viable option for "heroes" in this setting.
>>36502073Sweet spoils of victory.
>>36502073Well it's not like anyone cares about Solomon having done so, and it's not like his flaws aren't recognized. Precedent!
>>36502073Demons aren't exactly evil in this setting though. SOME, are, but not all of them.
"...Why are you so defensive about magic?" You have to wonder.She shrugs, almost shivering. "...I feel defenseless. When you're conjuring magic, you have to follow very specific movements. It's like... you know, maybe it's just my own paranoia, but sorcery feels like something very personal. It's... Like being seen while showering, or while undressing, or while sleeping, things that feel very personal. Plus..."She's lowering her voice, and you lean in closer to listen."...Well, you know how sorcery works? to earn the right to use it, you have to pass five trials. One of them is to face your darkest fears. Another is to sacrifice something important to you.""I... see.""Please don't ask me about those. Let's just say... that every time I use Sorcery, I'm reminded of what I've faced, and what I've lost. And it makes me uncomfortable. So... For these, and other reasons, I just like to be alone when I use sorcery."You nod."What spell was that, anyway?""Another Infallible Messenger. They're almost here. I transmitted them our position so that they know where to rendezvous with us."As she finishes her sentence, a brilliant flash of blue light erupts between you, taking the shape of a small, body-less flicker.You just have the vague image of a pair of ethereal, dragonfly-like wings made from pure light in hues and shades of blue, aqua, teal, cyan and green. The flicker lazily spreads its wings, and transmits, in Mikahil's voice:"Alright. We'll see you there, then, in about four hours."Then, it disappears."...That was the reply." She explains. "The spell lets whoever receives the message answer it immediately." She smiles. "Incidentally, why did you leave your bed?""I was bored." You admit.""Walking around wearing nothing but a blanket and bandages." She groans. "I'm amazed you didn't give some sailors a heart attack.">Ask Amata for fresh bandages>Ask Amata for some clothes>Get back in bed>Get back in bed, invite Amata to join you>(Other?)

Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36502184Forgot my dice, not that it seems likely we'll need them
>>36502189>Aren't the trials supposed to be good for youNo. Or rather, they are supposed to be "good for you" from the perspective of someone not very sane and reasonable. So no.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36502189A sacrifice has to have value to the aspiring sorcerer/ress. So yeah it might have been "holding her back" but it was still something that she valued that she gave up.
>>36502147>Walking around wearing nothing but a blanket and bandages.To be fair we did try and look for clothes
>>36502189The overcome fear definitely, but you could potentially pick a dumb thing to sacrifice and hella regret it afterward
>>36502189>Aren't the trials supposed to be good for youThe five ordeals don't have a positive agenda, they just work the way they do, maybe it works out well for you, but they aren't supposed to do anything except be fulfilled.
>>36502235What are the five ordeals?
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36502270I wonder how far up the ladder we are going to push our twilight. I heard that its better to stay at the Celestial Circle rather then go all the way to Solar Circle.
>>36502270A sorcerer in creation has to pass five trials or called five ordeals in order to be able to learn sorcery.Humility, need to learn "humility", which really just means understanding your limitsTutelage, need to find a teacherJourney, you have to wander for a whileFear, you have to face and master your greatest fearSacrifice, where you have to give up something of value
>>36502285>all the way to Solar Circle.well, you need to be Essence 5 to get it. I wonder how EF will represent that
>>36502290>Fear, you have to face and master your greatest fearHonestly because it does specify MASTER i'd say if Amata is still hung up on that AT ALL (instead of JUST hung up on sacrifice) then she didn't actually pass her fourth trial
>>36502330She must have passed her fourth trial because she can cast sorcery.
>>36502330"Master" is probably only meant for the moment or something similar.Obviously she must have passed by whatever standards are applied, otherwise she couldn't use sorcery.
>>36502344>>36502332it's a passive aggressive "exaltedfag you fucked up" you silly gooses
>>36502354It's more of a "we have different interpretations of canon if this is intentional, is it?"
>>36502354Or its just a anon that isn't familiar with the setting and doesn't know you literally can't cast sorcery if you don't pass.
>>36502363It doesn't require much of a different interpretation, White Treatise says it requires "a act of courage" which means it suffices if you overcome your fear in that moment, how well you cope with the trial afterwards isn't relevant.
>>36502390I feel that goes against the spirit of it.That's like sacrificing something and afterwards immediately getting it back or erasing your memory of the journey.Sure, by RAW it would work, but you're supposed to learn something and gain some sort of cosmic insight from the trials.
>>36502390In that case then it's inconsistent between different sources, because what >>36502285 says is mastering it, and if the fear still significantly effects you afterward than you haven't mastered your damn fear.
>>36502405>but you're supposed to learn something and gain some sort of cosmic insight from the trialsWho knows?Again, the Trials don't intend anything. They just work how they do, how and why they happen is pretty much open to the ST.You can just as well think the point might be to prove that you can overcome your fears to do something when it comes down to it, not all the time, but in important moments, which would completly sufice for learning sorcery.
>>36502422No its not, you just have a different interpretation of what masterin your fear implies than the guy who wrote that.And even if Amata did overcome that fear, the experience itself can still be harrowing.
>>36502422Mastering your fear doesn't mean you don't have that fear anymore, it just means you are consistently capable of acting despite that fear.You can still have it.
"In any case, I need some fresh bandages.""How are your wounds, by the way?" She asks, standing up and rummaging a bit around the room, in cupboards and drawers."Improving." You mumble, dropping your blanket on the bed and slowly undoing your bandages. "My bones aren't screaming anymore, and my skin feels funny and uncomfortable but not painful.""I'm sure plenty of people must've told you already, and you can certainly realize it by yourself, but your constitution and healing speed are downright terrifying." She starts pulling bundles of tightly rolled-up white bandages from a wooden box she found, which seems to contain some sort of first-aid kit. "When we picked you up, you didn't have an intact bone in your body. That was, what? barely three days ago. You're healing broken bones in hours."You nod, not sure of how to reply, as you remove the last of your bandages. She giggles, looking up to you. "I'm sorry, but you look like a pinto version of yourself."You groan. "Yeah, I know."She begins to wrap you up carefully. "Keep in mind, I'm no medic." She warns you beforehand."We can still do a bit of patient and nurse play if you'd like~" You tease her.She grins, giving your wraps a tight pull that sends a jolt of pain down your spine. "Ow! Ow!""My, this is a serious case." She hums. "The patient won't shut up and keeps annoying the nurse... whatever should I do?""Well, I might have a few suggestions on how to calm the patient down...(cont.)
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36502455>"I'm sure plenty of people must've told you already, and you can certainly realize it by yourself, but your constitution and healing speed are downright terrifying." I wonder how everything would have turned out if we didn't have body healing meditation. I guess EF would have resorted to "You've been unconscious for a week"
>>36502547Maybe he would have just taken our vote as written instead of making Maka do something different for the dramatic tension?With our successes we could have definitly kept the demon between us and the eye.
You spend a very pleasurable four hours in bed with Amata, until the time when the rest of your force is supposed to arrive.When you begin to feel the crew of the ship going back to work and running around the ship to man their stations, you also leave your bed and wrap yourself up in the blanket, heading topside. Amata isn't in any condition to join you, unfortunately, but you manage to get a spare jacket in the style of Tianna's naval uniforms from the crew, and wrap up the blanket around your waist and tie it down like an oversized long skirt.The rest of the fleet is sailing towards you, emerging from the night, with full sails, the decks crowded with jubilant crewmen, and your own ship's crew responds in kind.You idly notice the ship's mainmast lying down on the deck, tied down with ropes to keep it from rolling overboard after Tia broke it....You guess you have to be glad that she didn't think of breaking every single oar on board.One of the ships is the damaged Gloria, and really in a terrible condition, sails tattered, one flank almost entirely shriveled up by Lintha curses, and the clear signs of cannonball impacts along the hull. It's a testament to Valeriana's skill as an engineer that it's still afloat.From its deck, Mikahil waves wildly to you as soon as he sees you, then leaps across a large stretch of water, landing gracefully next to you. He flashes you a smile of greeting, but he immediately frowns casting a worried glance at the broken mast. "Lintha?""Tia." you shrug. "How is she?"Out of the blue, a large grey vulture comes down sweeping from the night sky, carrying a large brown cloth bag in its claws. It drops the bundle hurriedly on the deck, then leaps at you, turning into Tia in mid-air in a flying hug."MAKAAA! I MISSED YOU SO MUCH!""...It's been a day, Tia." You groan. "Barely a day.""Are you hurt? Are you alright?""I'm fine." You exchange a quick kiss with her. "How did things go?"(cont.)
"Tia went all-out." Mikahil says, clearly still impressed. "I've seen some Exalted fights, but nothing like that. She punched the fortress into rubble. With one punch. I didin't even think you could DO that.""With enough love, everything is possible." Tia grins, squeezing you like you're about to disappear any moment now."Tia?""I'm replenishing my Makanium supply."Now all ships in formation, your joined fleet changes course, heading back to Tianna.It feels weird to have won without fighting the battle yourself. You almost feel like someone left out of the loop.>Ask about the battle>Ask about the loot>Ask about losses>Ask about Rajan>(Other?)

"...How's Rajan?" You ask Mikahil. It took you a moment to realize, in the dark of the night, but he seems to be wounded as well: his clothes are half-burned, and soaked with blood. You see some large, deep cuts, still fresh, one on his right shoulder, almost down to the bone, and one stabbing between ribs."We don't know." He replies, concerned as well. "He was hit by an energy blast. That jade chainmail cloak you gave him exploded in a million bits absorbing the impact, and he was flung off far into the ocean like a rag doll.""Energy blast?" You scratch your head."The Lintha had some magical artillery too, probably stolen from a Realm ship. He took a shot square in the chest. I've never seen anything like it... he even bounced off the surface of the water twice, like a skipping stone.""...Could he be still alive?""Maybe. I don't know. It seems unlikely." He sighs. "Five Tails is searching for him, but the ocean is pretty damn huge. Still, he's a Water-aspect, so he might have survived underwater... I mean, if the blast and the impact didn't kill him right away, he's not going to drown, at least.">Leave one or two ships behind to search for him>Ask Tia to help Five Tails to search for him>Nothing we can do right now.Combined with:>Ask about the battle>Ask about the loot>Ask about losses>Enough for now>(Other?)

Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36502911Oh boy. If EF doesn't kill him then I wonder if he would end up in that place under the sea. Where they treat Dragonblooded really badly down there. >Ask Tia to help Five Tails to search for him>Ask about lossesThinking about it, Amata said that it had been nearly three days and we spend a bit less then two days fighting the bleeding heart and getting to black atoll. Which means that the truce with the Abyssals is likely to expire while we are in transit.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36502996>Which means that the truce with the Abyssals is likely to expire while we are in transit.yep, what I was worried about before all thiswe'll probably get back and find Tianna in ruins with everyone dead and the Abyssals in control of the Titan
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36502996Well seeing as when we left we had 3 days until the truce was over, I'm pretty sure its already over and they are already murdering their way through our cities.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36503009Which is why we need a boost back home! Or we could cram all our exalted into the Gloria and get Mikahil to spam his sail charms.
>>36503009>we'll probably get back and find Tianna in ruins with everyone dead and the Abyssals in control of the TitanNow you're just being ridiculous.Everything we know about the abbysals indicates they're really more likely to hold the entire population hostage.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36503039well thats one deathlord, the other is happy to murder his way through the countryside
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36503054No, the other is a sneaky, political bitch trying to force us to fight the first Deathlord by framing them.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36503066I don't see how getting a ghost to go murdering about screaming about the titan is being politicking
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36503079Because he was trying to frame the first bitch for that. If he was actually trying to fuck up Tianna, he would have sent an army of ghosts. Instead, he tried to fire a shot that would start a war.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36503094>Because he was trying to frame the first bitch for that.There is actually no evidence to support that, the ghost didn't try to say or plant anything incriminating the other deathlord, it didn't say much at all.It's more likely coincidence it attacked when we had the truce than a deliberate direct conspiracy.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36503105Amata herself said that's probably what that motherfucker was doing. So did Phoenix. It's a transparent and obvious ploy - have a single ghost attack while we're trying to establish a ceasefire with a deathlord in order to sabotage that truce. To suggest that wasn't his plan is like someone shooting an arrow with a note on it next to you and you assuming the arrow was intended to kill you rather than deliver a message just because it was an arrow.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36503133>So did Phoenix.When did he say anything about it?
>>36503133Either way, if/when there is an attack we'll want to do some investigating to determine who is really attackingDid we get the whole pass phrase from Karas, it might be useful in determining whether or not it really is the Silver Prince or not
You think about it. "...can we leave a ship or two behind, to look for him? I don't think even a crazy bastard like him can swim back to shore.""...it'll slow us down a bit, we'll have to shuffle the loot and some of the crew around, but we can leave two undamaged ship behind. I think he deserves that much." He admits."How long will we lose?""A hour? something like that, if we have us Exalted helping with moving the stuff around.""Can you take care of it?"He nods."...What about other losses?""...The Lord of Waves, Tianna's flagship, was sunk in the first minutes of combat. We saved someone, but it went down with 40 crewmen."You let him continue."Over the course of the fight, we lost about as many again, split between navy, pirates and barbarians."Adding everything up with the losses on the Gloria... about a hundred dead?""I don't feel like counting." He mumbles."I don't, either, but I must. It's a leader's duty to keep track of this sort of things." You reply. "And since I stood out of the fight...""Don't feel guilty for that. We all agreed to leave you out of it.""I'm not blaming myself, or anyone. Sometimes...""...Yeah... sometimes, it just happens." Mikahil says. "Yes. About a hundred.""Was a hundred lives a good price for getting rid of the Lintha?"Mikahil doesn't reply. That's a question only you can find the answer of.>Ask Mikahil about (what?)>Spend some time with (Mikahil/Tia/Irene/Samiel/Karas/Valeriana/Zaan/Zareen/Alexei/Iohannes/Rubel/Iscariah/other?)>Rest until your return to Tianna>Suggest a plan>(Other?)

Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36503191Fuck you.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36503154>>36503233This.
>>36503197This is probably a good idea. The Lintha might be good at keeping gods in line but they're shit at making friends with them. The local deities are probably very happy to see them gone, and are probably perfectly willing to give us a boost home in return.The Storm Mothers are a problem, though we might be a bit lucky to be wounded in that respect. They hate the beautiful most, and right now we look like a burn victim. That probably cancels our Exalted hotness out back into just "particularly sexy mortal" territory.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36503154>Suggest a plan>(Other?)pray to the local gods for a fast trip home in return for liberating them from the Lintha
Or prayer could easily be 'send us home fast and safe or YOU'RE NEXT' and it would probably still work. Killing all the Lintha like that is a big deal. Of course, being polite and making friends instead doesn't hurt.
"...So, what did these hundred lives buy us?" you ask Mikahil."Enough to keep the men's morale that high despite the losses." He answers, pointing at the deck of a nearby ship, where the sailors are singing and making a racket so loud you can hear it from here."Good loot?""Amazing." He nods. "Those Lintha picked up everything. Copper, iron, silver and gold, chiaroscuran glass, antengan ivory, haltan hardwood, gemstones and jewelry, barrels of salt, rum, sake and brandy, bolts of silk and cotton, dyes and tinctures, rare spices, exotic goods and wyld trinkets, Coral Archipelago bonds and obligations, jade ore and tokens, and a mountain of cash in jade coin and scrip, silver coinage, and cowries.""That much? I thought this was just a secondary base.""It is, but my guess is that they just keep stealing stuff over the years and never ferry it back to their main haven in the southern sea.""Why?" You wonder.He shrugs. "Beats me. Maybe they're competing? Trying to go independent? Some other internal, political issue? In any case, for us, it just means that they had several decades' worth of massed loot there.""Does this solve all of our cash problems?" You ask, expectantly."Not quite all of them. But." A sly grin forms on his lips."That smile. What are you thinking?" You ask the Eclipse."You see, seeing all this money together gave me an idea.""Do tell." Yes, meanwhile Tia is still latched on to you. Recharging her batteries."It's a lot of money, but not quite... you know, not more money than we know what to do with. Not more money than we could ever spend.""Are you planning on crashing the entire economy of the West?"He's still smiling.(cont.)
>>36503405>"Are you planning on crashing the entire economy of the West?">He's still smiling.I approve of this venture MikFucking Solars

Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36503419>"Are you planning on crashing the entire economy of the West?"We can take over wavequest relatively peacefully by crashing its economy and then getting them to elect Maka as the new feathered one as we have the only solution to the economic problem we created.
>>36503538There are more ways than one to take over a country.But wouldn't doing this have some nasty effects on the population, riots, rebellions, starvation of the lower class as the people in charge try and hold out for as long as possible.

"I know you already have plans, and you already spent some of this money on the Manse, the foundation of Pearl, and to pay for the prospection and mining of ores on Tianna." Mikahil explains. "So, here's my proposal: We take that out of the pile, plus a bonus for the soldiers with us and pensions for the wounded and the families of the dead. That still leaves a pretty big pile of cash.""How much would that be?""About... twenty-thousand red cowries.""That's a lot." You're still struggling with the cowry system the West uses, but a red cowrie is about a pound of silver.That's... over nine thousand kilograms of silver. That's a large amount of money even for the standards of the Queen of Gem."If you'll let me have it, and you and Tia come on a small adventure with me, I can turn that into one million red cowries in two weeks.""One million red cowries." You repeat. That number is so stupidly huge that it means absolutely nothing to you. You can't put it into any perspective you can understand. You try to mentally convert it in pounds, trip over the numbers, and lose track. "You ARE going to crash the Western economy.""Well, only until you don't get your hands back on Gem's treasury.Once you do, give me a season and I'll crash it everywhere." He smiles. "But that's long term planning.">Ask for more details on his plan>You'll think about it>You don't have that sort of time right now, can't he do without you?>That's crazy talk, you don't want him to do it.>Other?
>>36503575Yup. Of course, there isn't exactly a practical way to conquer the world without hurting a few people. Gotta break some eggs.>>36503538Having us be elected the new feathered one would leave us with a lot of institutional baggage to deal with. Better to absorb them into Tiania rather the other way around.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36503591>>You'll think about itI'm all for this plan, but not when we're busy dealing with the Abyssals right now.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36503591>You'll think about it
>>36503591>Ask for more details on his planNo sense of right or wrong-ing.
>>36503591>You don't have that sort of time right now, can't he do without you?we're kind of busy at the moment
>>36503591>Ask for more details on his plan
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36503591>Ask for more details on his planWe can't afford to do this until the Abyssals are dealt with, probably, but I need to know what he has in mind. I NEED to know.
>>36503591>Other?"We need to deal with the Abyssals first, on top of that I need to start acting like a Queen, which means less adventuring. Or at least setting up proper stewards for when I do."
>>36503591>Ask for more details on his planHe plans, Maka persuades, Tia enforces.That's perfect.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36503591>Ask for more details on his plan"Just as long as we're not selling chocolate covered cotton, I'm intrigued and I wish to know more."
>>36503591>>Ask for more details on his planSuper sure, but when are we going to find time for it?We still have a lot of stuff on our plate, dealing with probably two Abyssals, one who plans on taking over the world with a navy large enough to do it and another who wants one of the most powerful weapons ever created. Then we have our own plans, taking back Gem, sending people to scout for our remaining family, and anything else that comes up.
>>36503591>Ask for more details on his plan"Mostly, the bit where crashing the west's economy helps us. Don't want to skip that bit. "
>>36503591>>Ask for more details on his plan>>You'll think about itShort term: Let's get him to find our surviving family and gather the information he'll need to work his crazy plan
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36503591>Ask for more details on his planThis is a direction changing event that we would be fools not to take advantage of, as other people will.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36503639>Short term: Let's get him to find our surviving family and gather the information he'll need to work his crazy planRight we still need to ask him about this
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36503591>Ask for more details on his planTell me more, magic sun man.
>>36503591>That's crazy. You're crazy. I'm in you Mad Magic Sun Man.
So, Maka is now wealth 1 or 2
You lower your voice and lean in closer to the grinning Eclipse. "Alright. I'm listening.""Most of the money in the West orbits around the Coral Archipelago. First, I plan on converting all these knickknacks into solid cash, either cowry or silver. And making a good profit with that.""Alright, that sounds pretty normal. Where does the crazy part come in?""We use some of that money to pay expenses for the lavish visit of the Queen of Gem herself."You narrow your eyes."Of course, the Queen of Gem is the stereotypical vapid noble chick with more cash than common sense.""Hey.""So, when they find out that her chamberlain, yours truly, has a plan to con the vapid bitch out of her cash, every pirate, brigand and cutthroat of the archipelago will want to have a part in it. Especially when word goes around that recently a pirate boarded a ship carrying jewels from Gem, and she's so outraged that she intends to use all her cash and influence to buy, and destroy, as many government-issue pirating licenses as possible, to reduce the number of sailors that can assault ships while still enjoying the protection of the Coral government.""...That would send then in a panic. They'd all band together against me.""And the price of those licenses would spike, since they're a reliable source of income and a much-coveted good, and people will have the perception of a sudden scarcity so everyone will want to buy one before they all disappear from the market.""But the only one who will benefit from that price hike is the government, or whoever actually has a pirating license to sell. We don't have any.""That's why we need Tia."You look at Tia, who has fallen asleep with her chin planted on your shoulder. "Why does Tia have pirating licenses to sell?"(cont.)
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36503711Isn't Wealth 1 suppose to be equivalent to Resource 3 or something?
>>36503763No, its resources 6 basically, you're thinking of Salary. Wealth 5 is "Can crash the entire first age economy at will." Nobody has wealth 5 in the current age.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36503762>"Why does Tia have pirating licenses to sell?"Quest is why doesn't Tia have pirating licenses to sell?
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36503762>"Why does Tia have pirating licenses to sell?"She's going to eat the man that does have licencesOkay we are super going to need ranks in Night if we want to do this
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36503785we've got a whole shitload of other urgent business needing to be dealt with immediately, I think this is more long term planning for after all the current chaos
>>36503775>>36503785We just wiped out a massive Lintha base.The foremost murderpirates of the ocean.Where do you think the licenses came from?
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>36503792Yeah for sure, I didn't mean to imply we should buy them now or soon, just before we actually do it
>>36503797Coral, a completely different place. Lintha don't place nice, and certainly don't need licenses.
>>36503806I am implying they murdered pirates. They seem smart enough to keep anything that could be used as money.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36503154>"I don't, either, but I must. It's a leader's duty to keep track of this sort of things."That was one of the most Queenly thing I've heard Maka say
"Because the chamberlain of Gem is going to get a lot of pirates in the same room to sign an alliance to take you out, remember?""You're... going to have Tia beat them up and steal the licenses off them?""All heist plans must rely on a bit of muscle at a certain point." He shrugs. "We use the cash to buy as many licenses as possible with one hand, and with the other, we steal the ones already owned. We corner the most lucrative market in the West: the pirating business. We bring the Coral Archipelago to its knees and make our own rules."He looks inordinately proud."At that point, we have three choices. One: we keep the pirate license business intact, and over the next, say, ten years or so we make that famous million red cowries off that market.""Two?""...Two, we crash the entire system. No more licenses, no more government-sanctioned piracy. Pirates go back to being either privateers or outlaws, and we cash in on this crash. That will net us about a hundred thousand red cowries.""One.tenth of your famous million."He nods. "Then I take that money and challenge Plentimon, god of gambling, to the mother of all card games, for a payoff of ten to one"That's so insane you're not sure how to respond. Finally, you manage to put together an answer: "And... you're so sure that you'll win against the GOD of GAMBLING because...?"He grins. "I'll figure something."You groan. "Alright. This has been steadily getting crazier. I'm scared to ask what the third option is.""Pirate Queen Maka."You give up.>Alright. Keep the money.>Sorry. We'll need that money.>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.>(Other?)
>>36503841>Alright. Keep the money.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36503841>>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.but I'm all for this
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36503841>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.But we WILL revisit this plan after that.
>>36503841What's stopping Coral from making new licenses and/or declaring that all licenses that are stolen become invalid?
>>36503841>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.Lets try and keep Maka somewhat legitimate as a ruler. We don't need Anathema getting even worse of a name.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>36503591>I can turn that into one million red cowries in two weeks.">>36503841>ten years or so we make that famous million red cowries off that market."uhh theres a big difference between two weeks and ten years...
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36503841>>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.Let's put it on the list though, like literally second or third on the list.Let's also ask him about how long it would take him to travel to Gem and back
>>36503841>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36503841>>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first."Mik look, I would throw this money at you if I thought you could survive being hit by 2 tonnes of silver, but we have to deal with the more immediate problem we face; the Abyssals. Once they are dealt with, I'm all for this crazy plan."
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36503841>Alright. Keep the money.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36503867I think that number came from the gambling part of the planIt's my favorite plan, I can't say I like government-sanctioned pirates
>>36503841Wait, how do we stop Coral from issuing new licensees? Isn't the power of those Licenses eminating from the power of the Coral Fleet? What's stopping them from saying "Fuck you, we're voiding all licenses are reselling them in a new format."
>>36503863>>36503841I want to know this as well.
>>36503867>>36503863Yeah, this is seeming shakier and shakier the more I look at it. And if it fucks up? We're likely going to get Ito some shit, shit we don't need after Abyssals AND Lintha
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36503841Uhh EF why can't we give him the money and worry about the Abyssals? Why is worrying about the Abyssals rejecting this plan? The way the prompts are worded it doesn't seem like we would be merely delaying it until we have the opportunity for it, but are outright denying the plan from ever happening.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36503841>>36503863>>36503888these
>>36503841>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.I wonder if his curse is connected to gambling
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36503841>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.His plan is certainly a priority, though. I'd like to ask him if it's time-sensitive.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36503841>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.This plan would be awesome, but we need to make sure that we have a Tianna to come back to.
>>36503841>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.Honestly I'm skeptical here.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36503913What would that be, a temperance flaw?
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36503841>Alright. Keep the money.On one hand, I've seen what happens to get-rich-quick schemes. On the other, this sounds incredibly legit you guys come on.I mean, what could possibly go wrong?
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36503863>>36503892>>36503897Coral will almost certainly, sooner or later, make new licenses. But Privateer Marques are valid to whomever holds them. Stealing them from someone else makes yours just as much as buying it. It's like the marque to be a Rogue Trader.In the short term, though, you end up with TONS of pirates who are no longer legal privateers, collapsing Coral's pirate economy - which is its main source of income. And Coral probably won't be able to issue new marques affordably enough to salvage their economy - not to mention the fact that after that scandal, the stability of their economy and government will be suspect enough that a marque will no longer have the same cultural/economic power as it once did.Basically, it's like crashing the US Dollar. It fucks the country, and we make out like bandits, as Coral's left to try to hopefully maybe pick up the pieces.
>>36503925We waste all of the money and we're chest-deep in Pirates who are after our skulls.Not to mention Abyssals and Lintha revenge.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36503841>>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.Let's revisit this when our own kingdom is not under direct threat right this instant
>>36503841>>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.
>>36503841>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.Samefagging ho!
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36503841>>Sorry. We have to worry about the abyssals first.
Rolled 5 (1d10)There's a tremendous amount of samefagging going on here. You guys should be ashamed.
Rolled 8 (1d10)I know we just finished taking out the local Lintha base, but I wonder if any of the spies they had in Tianna are going to cause us trouble or if they're just going to run
You scratch your head."...What stops Coral from just issuing new licenses, or declaring the ones we steal null and void.?""Me." He grins. "I know tricks and ways to just bog down bureaucracy the moment it starts rolling. They won't be able to get any solution out in time to make a meaningful impact. Besides, it would wreck their credibility, and that's also a thing we can exploit by playing with their bonds and obligations.""Mh." You mumble. "In any case, we'll do this after we're done with the abyssals, if at all. Right?""Of course." He nods. "For now, we'll just set that cash aside.">Ask Mikahil about (what?)>Spend some time with (Mikahil/Tia/Irene/Samiel/Karas/Valeriana/Zaan/Zareen/Alexei/Iohannes/Rubel/Iscariah/other?)>Rest until your return to Tianna>Suggest a plan>Pray to the local sea god for a speedy return>(Other?)
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36503996Yeah, pretty clear theres one or two very blatant samefags after they lost the vote early
>>36503997Personally I'm more worried about the Lintha sending a FUCKHUGE fleet at us right after we deal with the Abyssals.

Rolled 6 (1d10)Might as well use some charms, as we got full essence. Majestic Radiant Presence would avoid a botch
>>36504006>Pray to the local sea god for a speedy returnCharm it up in here.
After having the last few words with Mikahil about how to handle the fleet up until your return. you manage to get Tia off your back and make plans to offer a big prayer to the local sea god for a speedy return. Time is precious right now, with your truce expiring... just about now, and you still out at sea.You'll have to change out of this jacket and improvised long skirt made from a blanket and wear something appropriate for the occasion.>Ask Mikahil if there were any fancy clothes in the Lintha loot.>Ask for someone to lend you their clothes (who?)>Ask Valeriana, she can probably figure out something.>(other?)

Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36504228eh, still good enough
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36504216We were at 3/5 when we prayed to Sol too, just saying, not much has changed, we can pray in other ways
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>36504228EF said in this very thread we're at 3/5
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36504238indeed, we save the dancing for UCS-sempai
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36504260didn't we dance for smokes?
You jump off to the Fell-Star, exchange a few words with Yohannes Quint (he took an arrow to the thigh, but is overall fine and satisfied with the action), and meet with Valeriana, who is currently having tea with Irene and chatting about... you have no idea what, honestly. You're lost.But the tea is good, and, after a few minutes, you manage to get a few words in."Actually, it might not be exactly your specialty, but I was wondering if you could make me a dress."Valeriana sets down the teacup, surprised. "A dress?"Irene sighs. "Man, Maka goes through clothes like... I dunno. I can't think of a fitting hyperbole. But, a lot.""I noticed." The Twilight giggles. "You know, I could make you nearly-indestructible clothes.""...I thought you were an engineer, an architect, inventor... not a tailor."She shrugs. "Technically I am, but Charms are funny things. I've found out, since I Exalted, that I've gotten good to a lot of artisan crafts that i never really practiced, trained, or even thought I knew anything about. I'm willing to give it a try. Our loot includes a lot of silk, cotton and precious fabric, right?"Irene nods. "I'm more of a hardware type of person, but maybe I can give you a hand. What should we do?""Mh." Valeriana mumbles, looking at you. "Any suggestions?">(suggest)No choices here, just say what you're thinking. Feel free to post images if you have one, otherwise describe something.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36504304A sundress with a window to our abs in it

Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36504304>(suggest)Something long and flowing.
Rolled 2 (1d10)I hope Valeriana makes it extra lewd by herself.We're working on corrupting her ot the ways of lewdity ,a after all
>>36504271Also danced for the mortals, apparently.
>>36504331Oh, I like this! But not the hood, Maka's hair must no be restrained.Also, fuck indestructible clothes. A fight isn't a fight if Maka isn't naked at mid or the end of it.
>>36504331Yeah I don't mind something like this, long flowing, something gold-ish in color, or at least something that would look good with our Gauntlets and boots
How about stockings, a bra and gloves? Maybe heels too.Maka is so perfect she doesn't need anything more.
>>36504385+1Yeah, no to the hood, as well. It's actually similar to the OP pic, just a bit more regal.
Rolled 7 (1d10)An adult version of this?
>>36504323Does that mean Maka could play any instrument she wants?
>tfw have a folder full of pic with clothes Maka would be great in>tfw can't post anything because not at homeThis kind of thing should be left for after the thread had ended, damnit!
>>36504331I like this
>>36504385>>36504406I kinda like the hood, but it should be for when we're praying and attending to affairs of State, not out punching things.>>36504415Yes, or sing if she felt like it.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>36504415yes
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36504304>>36504430This dear god this
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36504415I am pretty sure that combining this with EF's simpified system would mean that yes. We can play any instrument we want. Just like that time we showed that we were good with swords even though we never touched one before
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>36504304>>36504430this
>>36504435Hmm. Not a bad idea. It would give us a Holy Mother of Pearl kind of vibe. Maybe for leading public worship services or something.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>36504304I'll second the pic in >>36504430
>>36504415It's all performance, baby!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uT3SBzmDxGk
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36504331I'll vote for this, for now. >>36504403This can be made for when we start Queening everything up.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>36504331the hood on that just does not work with Maka at all
>>36504331I'm really on the fence about the hood, I like it and then I kinda don't want it to block Maka's hair, maybe let it hang down when we aren't being priestly or queenlyI really like this kind of flowing attire though, it would look really good when we're dancing
>>36504435Keep the hood, but use it for ceremony
>>36504432>doesn't have a cloud storage like OneDrive he can use to post from his phone
>>36504449Well she was given a queen's education. She was probably tutored on lots of different instruments which she was always just okay with. Now that she's Exalted, she's a lot more than okay.
You follow Valeriana and Irene to the cargo hold, where they start rummaging around in boxes and boxes full of bolts of cloth in various colors, while explaining to them your idea.You kind of have the feeling that they're just half-listening to you: they're bouncing ideas off each other. You can barely get some words in."Maybe we could use this and this, and use this for the hem. Have something that will show off Maka's rocking tits.""Well, that's a given, but should it be short or long?""I was thinking of something flowy-""Ooh, let's add, like, a head veil, or a hood.""Look hos slim and shiny this silk is. It's practically see.through.""I- I don't know. I was think-""It's sexy but Maka is about to be a mom and a queen, she needs to change her style to be a bit more dignified.""Well, we could use it only for this part here.""Hey, where are you touch-""And how about we make it go down to here, like this? Can you make it do that?""I can try! Irene, you get some foundation in Maka's skin color to hide her burn marks. Let's get her out of these bandages.""Wait-"(cont.)
>>36504509I knew getting the craft nerds together was a great idea
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36504509Maka's getting groped? I love it
Seeing Valeriana work is mesmerizing.As her Castemark blazes into view, spreading soft golden light in the cargo hold, you see her pull bolts of fabric together and just sewing them to each other by passing a finger over their surface. She fixes buttons simply by pressing them lightly in the material, and cuts it by tugging at it and having it magically come apart right where she needs it to.The two of them hide your scars (which has already almost vanished) and apply a bit of make-up to you, then just wrap the fabric around you and start working on you like a mannequin. You see a long, flowing white and yellow dress take shape around you, hours or days of work condensed in minutes. Throughout the process, Irene lets Valeriana do her job and just assists her with suggestions or giving an extra hand to hold something down.They both seem to be enjoying themselves very much.Once the dress is finished, Valeriana touches it, and both it and her castemark flash bright gold for a few seconds."There." She says, standing back, looking satisfied."Thank you." You smile. "Now-""Wait, let me do another one." She stops you."...uh?""Use my design now!" Irene suggests, enthusiastically."Sure!" She replies, pulling the dress off you and grabbing a fresh bolt of cloth. "Stand still now."[Session end]Base: 2 XPOperation Lintha Crusher complete: 1 XPTotal: 10 XPI have to AFK a bit now. once I'm back, we'll discuss new charms.

>>36504847>>3650487520 XP, my mistake, still a pretty big investment
>>36500945>those heels, those stockings, that condescending expressionMaka please, stop seducing me you're just a picture.
>>36504937>stop seducing me you're just a pictureThat's how you can tell it's really Maka and not a regular delicious brown girl. That and the lack of panties.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>36504847I'll be disappointed if there aren't any holy charms on the list . Any charm that allows us to dish out aggravated damage against Abyssials, Demons and other CoD is worth getting.
>>36505005>delicious brown girlShe's actually incredibly pale for someone from as far South as Gem. Many people down there have skin that's literally black, and that's without getting into more exotic elemental traits that tend to crop up down there, like glowing eyes or smoking breath. Maka is, by comparison, a delicate and pale Northern-looking person.
>>36505029What would be the equivalent in the quest since it doesn't have Agg damage exactly, just extra damage only against CoDs?I mean I guess technically our Banish the Darkness could count as Holy, sorta
>>36505057Banish the Darkness is definitely Holy. But yes, extra damage or armor ignore or bonus dice - anything that gives conditional bonuses only against CoDs is Holy.
Just got back. Gimme a sec.
>>36505232You know we never tried BtD against any of the Fae mooks, if it does work against all CoD then it should have worked on them too
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>36505578I think it only works on Undead.Which is pretty weir since Solars were made before the Underworld or Undead were a thing.
>>36505597That's implying that First Age invented charms didn't pass into common use.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36505703it's our anima power, though. We got it for free right after exalting, IIRC
godfuckdamnit i hate everything forever.sorry will post later, maybe much later, probably new thread
>>36505716It might just be a side effect of banishing CoDs, since undead are basically machines run by necromantic power and banishing that power eliminates their source of animation.
>>36505753Sit. Hope everything's ok on your end EF.
>>36505753...Do you hate me?Also, will Final Ray of Light be a charm that we could eventually get? Seems like an awesome Zenith Capstone
>>36505767Then it should still work on other Creature of Darkness extras, like fae mooks. Also, as-written, it works on ghosts, which are in no way animated constructs. It's odd because the Underworld, ghosts, and Necromancy didn't exist when Solars were created, and I think that charm is supposed to be our Anima power - i.e. a power fundamental to all Zeniths by virtue of being Zenith. That's why people think it must work on other CoDs too - that and EF, when asked, said we won't know if it works until we try it on them.
>>36505839>said we won't know if it works until we try it on them.This is a big one, we should go talk to Silk, ask her to make a hobgoblin mook and test it outIf it works then we know it should work for demons as well
>>36505839Or we could ask UCS sempai. He might actually tell us, since we don't want to accidentally Silks minions.
>>36505753If it get's too late it might be best to just wait for the next thread, we could vote at the beginning of the thread instead of the end
Do our artifact gloves and boots have a name?
>>36505925>we could vote at the beginning of the thread instead of the endMost people who participate in this quest, myself included, aren't even awake when it starts. People have pitched fits about critically important decisions being made when a majority of the players are asleep, and with good reason. Having it at the end is the only sensible choice, even if it means having to delay it to the end of the next thread rather than the beginning of it.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>36505984If EF does another thread for charm purchasing it'll be today so everyone will have a word in it.
>>36505938Not until we name them.
