Continuation of >>36582230>>36589291Well, since Jheska was the only one who would come in here, and I've kept myself alive through doubles that have had my mind duplicated into them, its fairly reasonable to assume that she's using my methods to body hop around. We don't know when she started, but we know she had the ability, as evidenced by her putting that seed of her mind into Fryia. All the doubles moving and speaking in unison with me is because I am only actively using this one outside the tanks. Speaking of, please do not look under the tapestry at the far end of the room covering the old looking tank.
>>36589447Woah, the meeting is going one, this is the first time we have an overtime.So I understood we need to befriend the other guilds, right?
>>36589447Thank you Pierre I will sue your notes to begin a counterspell for Jheska's possession. >>36589505Correct, We can't afford them attacking us during this time. Plus we may need their help.
>>36589505Yeah, tentative alliance with the druids. Reaching out to the clerical orders and the fucking bardic college down the road. Pestered their Soros, and I'm 95% positive one of the druids is fucking tuypo in disguise. Should have known the little bastard would go native. Oh, and Noel kept trying to get their soros to sniff her apprentice, remember to give her shit about that.
>>36589540Do I even want to know?
>>36589540>>36589505>>36589539Greetings, members of the mage's guild. I, Kazran Ka'ban of House Ka'ban, come to you as an envoy form the glorious drow houses of the Underdark, to discuss about pressing matter.
>>36589581He said Noel smelled like burnt cotton, so she got excited and tried to find out what Sam smelled like. I bribed him with rotting gorgonzola and apparently I smell like sweat, copper, and underdark perfume. Any light you can shed on that would be appreciated by the way.
>>36589581I find that if you have to ask that you probably don't. Also don't shoot I brought muffins.
Well, my work seems like it is a success, how has the meeting been going? Are we still going to be working with the druids or have they backed out yet?
>>36589626Speak then.>>36589636Well blood can smell like copper, you did sweat a lot recently, And im fairly certain Jheska molested you once or twice.>>36589638Peace offering or trap? I wonder.....
>>36589626AHHDROW ALERTDEPLETE THE CATAPULTSHIDE THE WOMEN(IF POSSIBLE, IN A FAR PLACE OF WHICH ONLY ME AND ANOTHER EXPENDABLE MINION KNOW THE LOCATION)EVOKE THE DJINNRAISE THE KRAKENKILL THE ELVES
>>36589626You had better answer two pressing questions. Why do I smell like drow sex and where the fuck is jheska?
>>36589680Do the muffins look female?
>>36589680No, I'm pretty sure the guy could differentiate between iron and copper, plus I've bathed a lot recently.
>>36589687I will answer to your questions, most egregious wizard, when your armored female companion stops aiming catapults to me.>>36589682
>>36589694Not that kind of trap. Pervert.>>36589711Well if he's a seer, it could mean you're going to get fucked by a drow. Wonder who?>>36589682Cromina, stand down. For now.
>>36589723She's not going to fire them unless you make a bad move. Or refuse to answer our questions and explain yourself. Or did you forget the drow army that marched on our hall not so long ago led by that brown leggy knife eared bitch Jheska?
>>36589756>>36589742All catapults on target! Fire at my command! For the glory of asmodeus and the nine hells, fi--WHAT? It is a drow! I got stabbed by several drow! SEVERAL TIMES! They are clearly evil!... well more evil than me!
>>36589783Questions first, then maybe a killing. Keep that bloodlust in check.
>>36589783There will probably be plenty of time for stabbing later. For now, let's see what the drow is here for.
>>36589783Time and a place for everything. Drink this, it'll steady those nerves.
>>36589810Stabbing you say....
>>36589742>>36589756Ahem. If I am allowed to talk, now, I want to make sure you know my presence means no harm. No magical traps on my body, no teleporting beacon for soldiers of the glorious armies of the houses. I come to you in peace, to seek alliance in times of need, sicne your interests are the same of the Great Houses, to seek and kill the filthy traitor known under the name of Jheska.
>>36589863Yes, do continue. *eyes glow*
>>36589863I fucking knew it. So where'd she get the army?
>>36589810Back in the fighter days, we had nothing of this bullshit, just a book in which was written how many XP was every uncommon race worth... >keeps muttering
>>36589863You got my attention, please go on.
>>36589916Oh don't get me started on the old days or we will both be talking about them all night.>>36589863So she betrayed you too then?
>>36589885>>36589887This is something we solved yet. The Fae'shan House that was plotting with the human mage Ashburn has been completely destroyed, his members scattered and killed like hunting game animals. No traitor was allowed to stand.Jheska, as she likes to be known, was exiled from the underdark centuries ago, I... suppose you know what was the reason of her punishment, don't you?
>>36590008No, do go on. The gratification at being right arouses me. Pay no attention to the fact that the bagginess of my robes draws attention to that.
Here your coffee everyone. Also, this is a sign up sheet for an expedition I shall be leading. Sign up if you want to
>>36590008Asking that of a Diviner?*snorts* but do continue you'll say it far better than I.>>36590032Thank you Mortimer.
>>36590008Personally I do not think I have been informed of the specifics of her crimes, but knowing her one can guess.>>36590032Ah, coffee, just what I needed, thank you Mortimer.Now what's this expedition you mentioned?
>>36590076A very, very, very high risk high reward type
>>36590044>>36590024She was found... guilty, to say the least, of arbitrarily meddling with the laws that stand as the foundation of the glorious drow society and subverting the natural order of things, not to mention avoiding the punishment her Goddess laid on her. As such, after having been found guilty of the murder of a royal princess, she has been cast into exile, damned to never see her plan coming into fruition.
>>36590117I'd go, but I'm preparing for a very low risk high reward one myself.
>>36590137Damn. Well ok then
>>36590131That sounds more like a list of qualifications honestly.
>>36590117Yo! And I'm coming along. But we should really say "Yo" more often, helps with the camaraderie.
>>36590076Seeing Jake'ness stupidity if you ask me.>>36590131So succinct Kazran, so what do you and yours have to offer us?
>>36590117That sounds PERFECT for an apprentice like me! Where do I sign and when do we leave?
>>36590157Ok that's one.>>36590180You just made it a whole lot harder for me to get people to sign up. Thanks man
You don't say....
>>36590211Right here >>36590220Hello Stabby
>>36590236Hey Mortimer, muffin?
>>36590156Your opinions are of no concern, wizard. The threat she poses to everyone, but mostly to the royal house, is.>>36590180Her head, on a pike if possible. The gaze of the Goddess reaches far away from the underdark and so does our magic, in other words, we do know her location. We can give this information to you, though... though, we will have to ask something back, as payment if you want.
>>36590212I value you and your work, but I won't let other go to their doom unknowingly.
>>36590264What did you do to them?>>36590270I can respect that. But still, you made my job a lot harder
>>36590266I'm just going to not mention any possible complications because I'm sure your divine magics see and know all, so I'm going to ask what kind of payment you'll be asking.
>>36590270Hey, I do know perfectly I am going to die in five years so no reason to worry. Although, it is probable that you were not worry about me.
>>36590266You should trust this guy, he sounds like he knows what he is doing.>>36590294I did nothing to them. Why does no one trus- Dr.Stabby can't keep a straight face at that one.
>>36590266So what would your price be Drow?>>36590294Fair enough, though I still believe this is great folly.>>36590299*smirks*>>36590314Decommissioning annuls some prophecies Cromina, be mindful of that.>>36590333Thought so.
>>36590333I'll make you those little sandwiches you like if you tell me what you did to them.
>>36590236Awesome! I can't wait to tell the others I'm actually going on a dangerous expedition, they never thought I would live to see this day. This is going to be awesome, high risk for high pay, what could go wrong?
>>36590349*I* did nothing to them other then accept them as a gift and bring them here. If you don't trust me, why don't you check it from traps. You still remember how to, don't you?
>>36590389Change your robe color apprentice, it may save your life.
>>36590401Yes I do.>check for trapsDamn it Stabby>>36590389Your going to die soon>>36590420To late for that. He said one of the phrase you should never say
>>36590299Nothing that you should be worried about. Just a simple token of respect and trust. We would like to have our precious princess sojourning for the next months, until, say, we had found and killed jheska, in the most warded, guarded and supervised place on this plane... that is your guild. Obviously we trust you not to harm her in any way but, as a little exchange of courtesies, we would like to have one of your number coming to the underdark with us and sojourning into the queen's palace.
>>36590458*starts laughing* Pierre, the seer was right!
>>36590347What? No prophecy at all. I am simply going to die in a couple of years, I can't do nothing to stop it so I just roll with it.
>>36590458The guild hall.....riiiiight.....So, we got any volunteers? Also, can she clean? It's very important that she be able and willing to clean.
>>36590487May I ask to what? I really don't want to burn the mana to see you're everything to figure it out.
>>36590420But I got it from this other apprentice a while back, said he was two days away from graduation and that it would bring me luck or something.>>36590449I'm going to what? I said what? What did I say!?
>>36590483He wasn't smelling the future damnit, just whatever was on us at the time. For that matter, if I wanted to bang out a dark elf I've had the opportunity before.
>>36590458Hi, I'm Dr.Stabby, Jack of all trades and kinda sorta boyfriend of Jheska's. I'm here allll the time.
>>36590508You know what you said
>>36590508It's a cursed rob, youngling. You also said a series of words that bring horrible misfortune to those that utter them.>>36590517You sure about that?>>36590458Who'd you have in mind?>>36590524And spying for her most likely.
>>36590492I say we send Stabby, any objections?
>>36590483Can you explain the reasons behind your hilarity, wizard?>>36590492She has received the best education in the plane, so she is clean and well-mannered as a princess should be, isn't it obvious to you?>>36590524>draws an halberdI have probably misheard your words. Are you what with Jheska?>>36590546Let's see... what about your self-proclaimed short-lived knight female, there?
>>36590549I'm sure stabby won't object to hanging out with drow women.>>36590546Yes I'm sure, it all started because he complained about Noel smelling like she set Sam's wardrobe on fire, which she did last week.
>>36590549None here. Might have to bind him and knock him out to get him to go though.>>36590574Just a coincidence I found funny at the time. It's of nothing. Also it's Cromina's call.>>36590587ARE you SUre?
>>36590574He means he's wanted to plow Jheska for some time, he isn't actually involved with her. Anyone familiar with him can tell you that he doesn't care for her on a personal level. He just has a thing for drow women.
>>36590508Oh dear. You're in quite the bit of trouble. Well, if it helps, it'll probably be quick. Now, does anyone know what happened to all the dire chickens? Fluffy needs his lunch.
>>36590549I'm not part of your guild.>>36590574Me and her fuck like animals all the time. sometimes I break us in here and we do it on Soros's bed.
>>36590604Yes I'm sure, I smelled it myself and couldn't place what it was.
>>36590633So you're going to willingly miss out on a palace full of drow women?
>>36590633Damn it Stabby
>>36590633For a thief you are a horrible lair.>>36590646Then that means Jheska likely took you for a ride my friend.
>>36590506Burning from within probably. You see, I was not exactly, ehr- suited to be a spellcaster. Not at all. But since I wanted power I kinda, ehr, bargained for it. It was nice and all but the magic power is effectively cleaving trough my body. So that's it, I got some more to leave and then I'll go to the nine hells, I hope. There I'll try to sort it out with Big A. >>36590604ehr, why not. I am in BDSM and killing me is really just accelerating the things of five years tops. >>36590593I get you wanted me to come with you but there are better wizards than me to ask to, don't worry.
>>36590669........>>36590574I surrender, take me away.
>>36590675.....I feel dirty and I'm going to down a few potions of cure disease. I'm also sleeping at my restaurant for a while.
>>36590528It's the part about how I would live to see this day isn't it? I knew I shouldn't have gotten ahead of myself.>>36590546They are cursed? Are you sure? The guy who gave it to me seemed fine, in fact I saw him yesterday. Told me some story about door duty or something.>>36590627...that does help a bit, thank you.
>>36590707Seriously, how did you not pick up on that sooner?
>>36590729Well, your status has upgraded from coming to die to person who will constantly get knocked around but not die
>>36590734I blame old age.
>>36590689Most appreciated, Knight. Trust is everything in alliances.>>36590633>>36590707You. I do not sense magic coming out of you, so what are you, some kind of rogue? Whatever. You are saying you both had relationships with Jheska AND polluted the body of a drow, albeit traitor, with your semen? This will not stand. Prepare to die, pathetic little rogue!
>>36590729Someone wearing a red robe always dies first when things go badly on an expedition. ALWAYS it's become a rule of creation at this point.>>36590711Also exterminate any spiders you see.>>36590734He isn't that bright.
>>36590775Well this is going to get bloody.
>>36590727 you know, for a moment I felt like you were trying to keep me at your side and were concerned about my well being. It is good to see you are not.
>>36590775Don't, please, for the love of everything. You're just going to get stabbed to death and back to life. It isn't worth it. I asked him to teach me to fight and he just locked me in his basement for a week and beat me unconscious every time I woke up.
>>36590763That sounds A LOT better, better than death at least.>>36590779...huh?...Sooooo... I should get someone to come with me and wear this robe instead?
>>36590818He's jealous of potential male rogues. Now kisssssssssssss. I've only got a week to finish my guild romance bingo card.
>>36590775Dr.Stabby springs backEasy son. Someone, namely everyone but me could get hurt.
>>36590822Are you saying that old man is no match for the head of the Black Guard, Kazran of House Ka'ban? Do not be stupid, wizard. I'll chop his head with but a single motion!
>>36590825Yes. Also, what magic do you specialize in?>>36590818You made your decision . I'm not going to argue with you>>36590835That's not it!>>36590854Oh this not going to end well for you
>>36590854Black Guard? As in a fighter type?Dr.Stabby frowns.
>>36590854No, I'm saying that he is not a normal rogue. He's more like the legendary old fart that up and coming rogues go to get their asses kicked by so they can hopefully learn something.>>36590867Oh come off it, you'll nevver get the girl if you don't tell her how you feel. Besides, I read both your diaries.
>>36590893Come here, so that I may bash your head in with my club
>>36590835I'm not going to kiss anyone, Pierre. And you got a spider on your shoulder by the way, but do not kill him or the drow will be reaaaaaally mad about it.>>36590854I wholeheartedly support you.>>36590893I have NOT a diary!
>>36590893Good stuff rig-Dr.Stabby springs back from another swing.
>>36590881It is fear what I see? Or scorn maybe? You don't like fighters, traitor fucker?>slash at his throat>>36590893None will be sad if he stops breathing, than.
>>36590867Well I wouldn't say I'm specialized in anything yet, but I do know a fair deal of elemental spells. So when is the expedition leaving? Man, I can't wait to tell my brother about this when we get back.
>>36591015Stop tempting fate, you dolt
>>36590967Haha don't be silly, why would an-Dr.Stabby rolls back again but receives a cut. he then tosses some knifes at the drow.-yone afraid of fighter types? Defiantly NOT this guy.
>>36591064Hey, I AM half fighter, uneducated swine!
>>36590923If you strike me down, I will become more powerful and sexy than you can possibly imagine!>>36590926THEN EXPLAIN WHY I WROTE IN THIS PINK FLOWERY BOOK? YOU THINK YOU CAN WITHSTAND MY CONSPIRATORIAL MATCHMAKING SKILLS?
>>36591064Aren't Fighters you big weakness?>>36590926>>36590923Will you 2 just fuck and say you love each other already?>>36590689You do realize I can fix a simple Mana overload right?
>>36591126Your almost as bad as jheska when it comes to thing like this soror
>>36591064Your knife are nothing to my armor, rogue. But this is not the place nor the moment to further our feud: Your life will be taken for the glory of House Ka'ban and the drow as a whole, however, and sooner than you can imagine.>>36591097>>36591126I demand an answer then. Is your guild going to accept the alliance?
>>36591171Sure, Cromina said yes.>>36591169Yes, but it comes from exasperation born of affection instead of joy born of malice.
>>36591171Hold on, this is important, I've been trying to get these two to hook up for months now. And yeah, we're just quibbling on who to send. I also seriously advise that you do not continue to attack Stabby, he will kill you and you need this alliance as much as we do by the sound of things.
>>36591086Which is why I only half respect you.>>36591126>Pic related>>36591171Dr.Stabby thinks better about pointing out that you are probably not always in armor. Does this mean you won't take me to your women?
>>36590627Well, three fleshwarpers? Where's Lupa when you need her? I must say that this is a most welcome addition to the guild. More collaboration opportunities are always welcome. I specialize in self-modification, what is your specialty?
>>36591126Who the fuck do you think I am, Noeal? Listen to me, mort is nice but there is only sex between us. And only occasionally.And about the mana overlaod, I'm sorry you can't do that. Well, at least you can if you go talking the big heads of the nine hells but then I will lose my power. And I prefer to blaze bright and high than to glow faintly and lastingly.
>>36591248You up for an expedition?
>>36591266I prefer the term smolder. And you should reeeaaallly see what he writes about you. Might even change your mind.
>>36591266Added to my to do list then. Also love finds everyone Cromina. You're just Lucky Mort won't break under your touch... unless he wants too. In the mean time *places a sigil in hand* That should extend what time you have by a good two to three years.
>>36591307First off, it's a log, not a diary. Second, there is a fucking huge spider on your back
>>36591298Where to? I must have a reason to actually travel, though this will be a good time to try out my spider-leg body modification. Is there a rare specimen I can find?
>>36591238I will never take you nowhere near a drow woman as anything else than a human sacrifice>>36591307Am I going to wait some more then? The leaders of the Houses demand an answer and they are not known for their patience
>>36591341We are going to the Northern Barrens, so maybe
>>36591349Dr.Stabby claps and rubs his hands togetherI'm willing if you are. Bitches love human sacrifices.
>>36591333Uh, thank you I guess. But worry not, I am not fryia, I am completely, unapologetically evil, love has no ties on me.
>>36591336I am internalizing my horrified screams, as I recognize the smell of horny spiders. Someone dispell it please. Seriously, at least tell her how you feel so you have some closure. What have you got to lose?
>>36591407*doubles over laughing* S-sss-Sure Cromina.
>>36591364Second question, why do you want me? There are plenty of other mages that have wider talents than I do. Unless it's healing or creating creatures and self modification, I am pretty much useless.
>>36591453How many healers do you think we have here? You were off on some project when we were attacked, so you missed me going to town with a needle and thread. The fact that that happened should tell you some things.
>>36591421Actually, spiders are s..sacred. So you must not. Harm. Them. Here, I'll take it off for you.You smell oddly of drow pherormones, wizard. May I ask you why?
>>36591453I'm taking who ever I can get. Also, we are being accompanied by an apprantice who wear's a red cloak
>>36591421Dr.Stabby chucks a knife at the spider.>>36591364Don't worry boy, I'm sure you and cromina will bump uglies by at least season 5.
>>36591491I wish I knew for certain. All I know is that I feel rather violated and want to go cry on a chamber pot, stuffing my face with fatty foods and leaving the door open.
>>36591491Jheska raped him in his sleep apparently.>>36591502*Tentacle deflects knife into the ground* REally? Trying to start more shit?
>>36591364Northern Barrens you say?You think you could bring my apprentice whit you, I'm sure he will bring down the tower with his incompetence any day now. He would probably make a good meat shield though, unless you already have someone for that.
>>36591502>chucks a knife at the spider.HOLD!>stops the knife mid airARE YOU AN IDIOT? DO YOU WISH TO SPOIL THE ALLIANCE WE MADE?
>>36591534It left my hand right as he said it. as in I completely missed it.
>>36591476Oh for fucks sake, you bitches keep making fun of the fleshwarpers for the kinky shit but when you need a god damn arm regrown. I swear, you guys need to at least get some basic healing magic training to be in the guild.
>>36591502That's a guaranteed way to kick yourself out of the game down there, you know that right? No harming spiders, no badmouthing their goddess, no stabbing higher ranking people than the one you are going for. They'll like you, but the political turmoil will ruin any chance of getting lucky. Best to off ambitious underlings vying for their position.
>>36591579God luck getting that amendment passed. Lupa's tried 3 times now.
>>36591502I'm going to feed you to my pets if you keep this up sir.>>36591536The more the merrier
>>36591534This would be in her style, I recognize.>>36591586Intelligent for a human, and wise. I can leave the princess in good care, then....?
>>36591626Yes, but I'd suggest my restaurant over the guild hall. We're working on repairs from jheska's little stunt still.
>>36591626So since the alliance is all but signed I have one question. Is she allowed to learn Surfacer magic?
>>36591626Well for her to truly be safe, You'll need to take me with you. You'd be protecting her v- Dr.Stabby coughs
>>36591248Oh, I've been here a while, I just keep forgetting to graduate. Apprentices get ALL the best jobs, you know?I specialize in hybridizing animals, though I've dabbled in self modification. I've got a dozen or so spare bodies lieing around... which reminds me. Any of the departments got a surplus of apprentices? I lost a few bodies in the mess with the Kerberos/Terrasque hybrid fiasco. I need to replace them.
>>36591673Don't make me get conjuration to summon a hell knight to guard her.
>>36591601At least there are three of us fleshwarpers now, we are essentially the medics of the guild. Sad as that may be. Don't blame us if you end up as one of our experimental subjects though. We rarely have humans to use as control groups and test groups. On my end, I just add metabolic and hormonal tweaks, Lupa is more liberal with that shit.
>>36591646The Houses instead that it should be the guild, I am afraid.>>36591656It depends of what surfacer magic is, but besides, she is yet into divine magic.>>36591673We will make sure you will never be able to harm her, this is certain.>>36591543Come forth then hostage, and prepare yourself for the wonders of the underdark are not for the faint of heart.
>>36591700I don't work when I'm on sexcation.
>>36591719I make sure my kids know basic healing but most other departments won't. Also Lupa know not to warp me with all the magical afflictions I have. Nearly killed her alt time on accident.
>>36591754Meant common arcane spells, evocation, conjuration, divination, necromancy etc. etc.
>>36591754*sighs heavily*Of course they do. Also, stabby has decided to accompany you. You will soon learn what we put up with here.
>>36591754I can teach her how to garden if that's alright with you, after the expedition of course
>>36591699Oh my, quite interesting. I'm more than willing to give you a few cruelty free bodies, I clone them without a few key things needed for true sentience. You can add those parts yourself. I pride myself on being a bit more moral in my testing practices.
>>36591802Stabby will not accompany me. If I am even to see him in the underdark, or hear of his exploits, I am going to kill the hostage on the spot. Did I make myself clear?
>>36591861He isn't technically part of our guild, we have no control over the little shit. Please kill him if you can. As for Cromina, well she pretty tough took out the entire royal guard of that fallen house herself.
>>36591861He's not a part of our guild, and we can't do anything to stop him. For that matter, Cromina isn't easy to kill either. I'm telling you about him going as a warning for your sake.
>>36591861Too late, Pierre convinced me I need to go on sexcation. Don't Worry mort, I'll make sure nothing untoward happens to your bonny lass. when I can be asked to.
>>36591886>>36591906Shut up you two. For you non-lawful types this means nothing but he is right and if something like that happens I will track down stabby, take his head and present it to krazan hoping this will sate his anger, rather than trying to stop his blade from severing my neck just because I wish to live a little more.>>36591943Don't, doc. Just don't.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>36591943>club over head
>>36591886>>36591906>>36591943Then no pact shall be made. Either you restrain him or there will be no alliance between us and the Mage's Guild
>>36592022Are tentacles okay with you for restraints? I can do that.
>>36592022Fine. *while Mortimer distract Stabby I throw a bouncy ball at him*
>>36592022Can you just take him prisoner instead of hostage? You've probably got better tools to extract information about Jheska from him than we do.

>>36592059Charisma was your dump stat, I guess.>>36592051>>36592052I'll ask the Houses on this. Knight, come forth now, we are leaving. The princess is scheduled to arrive in minutes.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>36592059>ball shotBe quite Stabby
>>36591820Wooonderful! I'm sure they'll fight less, if nothing else. I can return the favor by sharing some of the parts from the basilisk I hunted in the sewers last week. >>36592059>>36592022Well, I could just feed him to one of my pets?
>>36592115*Wraps Stabby up with Drow hair bindings.*Coughed it up during one of my fits.
>>36592051It works? Impressive.>>36592113Yeah, yeah, take me to the riv- ehr, underdark. I am ready to go. good night guys, it was fun as always
>>36592131Oh my word, just what the doctor ordered. I want an eye please.
>>36592131I would deeply appreciate it.>>36592158>walks away with cromina behind him
>>36592152Yeah fine okay.>>36592115You have been practicing your sneak attacks! Dr.Stabby sounds a little too happy about that.
>>36592158Have fun, stay safe, try not to think too longingly of Mort while you're away.
All right. I have to go prepare for the expedition. See you then everybody. Also, the purpose of our expedtion is to find Jake'ness and convict him to decommission Jheska
>>36592152I never took you for being into S&M, Soros.
>>36592230This sounds like a spectacularly bad idea that will probably lead to tracking down Jheska and getting the other half of that recommissioning ritual from her.
>>36592113Ah shit, we should probably get some quarters ready. Who's up for babysitting?
>>36592264I'm not, this shit was literally vomited out of my mouth during a bad flare up of chaos blight. Saved it for study. Then had it enchanted with you in mind because of your shenanigans. It's effect is rather simple, you break out of or cut the ropes without saying the command word. You lose the ability to arouse or be aroused by Drow, forever.
>>36592264You have no clue how I am in bed. I'm ten times better, or worse, depending on how you look at it.
>an honor guard burst in, followed by an herald*ehm* I announce the princess of the great royal house, heir to the spider throne, future scourge of the surface dwellers, Jheska the Fourth, daughter of Jheska the Third.>drow princess enters the hall, looking rather bored, on top of a giant spider.
>>36592406I....................am at a loss for words.
>>36592333uh huh... Neat. >>36592406Hey baby! mind getting your step father out of a bind?
>>36592406*eye twitches before I smile* There had better be an explanation forthwith or i'm going to the underdark and letting everything that keeps me sane go all at once.>>36592450*stomps on Stabby's head* Shut up cretin.
>>36592466*You stub your toe on his thick skull*
>>36592466They didn't say which drow princess she killed, or what her station was beforehand. You want to go get drunk? I think the situation calls for it. Our lives have officially become a comedy of errors.
>>36592484>Implying a stomp and a kick are the same thing. If it was a kick that might've worked.>>36592501I am far too angry for a drink to do me or anyone else any good Pierre *3 more tentacles pop out of back*
>>36592466Greetings, members of the mage's guild (it is it, it isn't? Right). I am Jheska the Fourth, daughter of queen Jheska the third, and I've been instructed to stay here and learn about your unusual ways...>>36592501>>36592466>>36592426... what is with those humans, herald? They are not bowing down and they keep talking about weird stuff.Humans! I demand an answer! What is the reason on your weird behavior?
>>36592523good pointI honestly find this hilarious that you didn't see this coming. Also fuck you. Dr.stabby coughs out.
>>36592553We're mages, we don't bow, you're a guest here, no one told us you would look exactly like, and have the same name as Jheska the Traitoress, and now I have to make that distinction.
>>36592553*in High Drow* We do not bow because here you have no power. Magical strength is all that is respected here. Your position of birth and politics is worthless here.>>36592581Behave and 'ill heal you up.
>>36592581I've had a long day. Soros dragged me into the creepy room that I had to divulge the contents of in the name of guild security, and now I need to move it somewhere else. Fortunately I won't need help.
>>36592553Well, I'm irreverent because I have a dozen spare bodies, I build monsters that make you look like a tiny kitten, and, well, I'm a mage. Mages bow to no one.
>>36592628Don't even think of letting her in that room. By the by.
>>36592553Let me out and I'll behave. besides it's not like I'd kill and or have sex with my stepdaughter.>>36592553How are you doing sweet heart? I brought muffins!
>>36592650can I make her sign a blood oath to never discuss the contents, nor utilize any knowledge gleaned inside?
>>36592612>Eyes widenI... How dare you, insolent wizards! Pollute not the tongue of my people with your silly reasoning.>>36592588I am afraid you are talking about previous queen. It'll be my mother, yes.>>36592651>sniffs the muffinsherald, check for poison before I am to eat them.
>>36592651<Silence> I said shut up Stabby. I am in no mood.>>36592664No, i'll get my apprentices to clean up if you are that desperate.
>>36592651>>36592553Don't eat his muffins. Keep in mind that due to your status as a hostage, you are amongst equals here, not inferiors.
>>36592669Dr.Stabby tries to warn that he needs to untrap the muffin basket first but is silenced by a spell.
>>36592669Look, you can either accept the insolence or have a bad time here. The guild runs on insolence and irreverence.
>>36592669Numbnuts over here *points at Stabby* trapped those, don't touch elfling. Also we will not bow and scrape for you here. Your mother learned that the hard way.
>>36592713Dr.Stabby would like to point out that *He* did not trap those. but he can't. Silence.
>>36592713Why does it keep happening Soros?
>>36592678I am not an hostage. I am a guest. >>36592713And since I have the favor of Lolth, which my mother did not have, I do belive none can say to be "equal" with me.
>>36592724<lifts the spell> Be good our it'll be black tentacles next.>>36592757Cosmic Irony?>>36592780As someone who ahs destroyed her material avatar more times than I care to count, Who cares?
>>36592780Hostage, guest, it amounts to the same thing. Did they not inform you about how the guild works? If I didn't know better, I'd say that they were hoping Noel would see you and snap immediately.
>>36592833I do not know what a "Noel" is. But Kazran while make it as no one cold harm me, as he has done since my mother tried to kill me.
>>36592780I can do spider tricks too, without the pesky favor of Lolth. All it takes is the proper pheromones.
>>36592805Dr.Stabby sighs and starts subvocalizing words and phrases. He starts with the list of things he is least likely to say. The first, for those of you that read lips is, "Soros is right".
>>36592871He dumped you on us for protection. I suppose you need to know a few things. Your mother led an army here, took control of the body and mind of Noel's lover, who was a valued friend and ally to many of us, brought back several old enemies of the guild, and destroyed large portions of our home. You do not have any protection here other than us. My advice would be to lay low, and not make enemies.
>>36592887*rolls eyes*>>36592871So since you are here and more or less stuck here for the duration, which school is going to be your major apprentice?
>>36592919Any bets on if its yours, mine, or noel's? I'd say probably not Noel's, she doesn't deserve this much cosmic irony.
>>36592919She's going to learn Stabomancy! Not as good as stabupuncture but I figure she's here to learn magic, not art.
>>36592906I do have Lolth's blessing. Also that is her style, she has done this kind of things since before the exile. >>36592919>>36592947Tell me more about this "Noel", please, I am curious about... her? Him?
>>36592947No bet, odds are the girl going to want to blow shit up with fire.>>36592952We do not have a stabomantic class Stabby, sorry. If she wants to learn from you after this is done feel free.
>>36592991Noel is the female head of the Pyromantic department. She makes fire lots of it and burns her enemies to the ground with it. Odds are she will not like you do to parentage.
>>36592993Thats going to be a safety concern.>>36592991She's a sorceress specializing in pyromancy, and is going to kill you on sight if this doesn't get explained to her before she sees you. She also already has an apprentice, and if any harm comes to said apprentice, she is not going to take you on.
>>36593021Which the kid learning to toss fire or learning from the rogue after this alliance is concluded?
>>36593008>>36593021So she hates Mother, it seems, and is really passionate about it... I like this lass. I will gladly learn from her.Also, can I ask you who said lover was? An handsome and dashing man, I take it for sure.
>>36593067I'd say the kid's concern being anywhere near Noel. Also, make sure she's not just an immature double. I'm tired of all the fast ones that keep getting pulled on us.
Dr.Stabby keeps subvocalizing, starting on a new list. That being most common command word used by those at the guild. The first is "It's magic, I don't have to explain it."
>>36593082A woman named Fryia the Crow, possibly one of the greatest witches of our age. rmsaacp edification.
>>36593082Only if you like having your skin slough off your bones in a maelstrom of hellfire kid.Her lover was Fryja the Crow who you're mother trained as her protégé. You're mom is currently wearing her like a meat suit.>>36593089I checked she check out on the basics, she'd have to sit down for the advanced ones.>>36593104Indeed.
>>36593147Well, I'm sure she'll oblige.
>>36593111...Fryia, you say. This is curious. Mother always went away from the Underdark instead of, say, attending her duties, before I was born, or so Kazran says. And even when I was she kept doing it and when she was home, she talked to Lolth about how this one human named Fryia has grown powerful and loved her and thoguht she was like mother for her. Then she killed my sister, tried to kill me, and fled.But this one you talk about can not possibly be the same Fryia that took my mother away from me, am I right?
Dr.Stabby starts guessing randomly now
>>36593220Wait what? When she first showed up here she told us she had been exiled. Also, Fryia saw her as a friend, and then when Fryia went and found herself a lover, your mother went apeshit, committed suicide via soros, and promptly started wearing Fryia like a meat suit. Fryia wasn't responsible for any of this.
>>36593262This cannot be. She was only exiled one century and a half ago, after all.
>>36593285Well gang, looks like its another shocking revelation about old Jheska lying. Please tell me you brought some kind of royal booze, because I am just about tired of dealing with your mother. Oh, and if you know any way to keep her out of a bedroom, I am all kinds of ears at this point.
>>36593262Sorry for being so late guys, I had to help an old lady with some errands before I found the meeting place at the Black Fortress to be completely empty.Took me hours to find you guys here!
>>36593262Logic on a Drow, a child at that. You know better.>>36593220*rubs forehead* This is going to be a long day.>>36593285You mom has been with the guild for Millenia little one. Very rarely do mages age normally. Yes Fryja is that old and she is still considered young by our standards. I was here when the guild was formed. It was just after Eirlena the Cruel, Seventh leader of house Ashtaris got beheaded. Hell I saw the bitch off and waved.
Okay, I'd just like to thank whoever it is that gifted me with sapience. Seriously, I love this - I mean, cooking? Why did I never try this before?
>>36593319What should I do? Tell her to go try and be best friends with Noel, what could possibly go wrong?
>>36593347I was just saying you're normally smoother than that.>>36593342Try the enchanters or fleshwarpers Mammoth>>36593314We haven't met there in years Anderson.
>>36593299I'll give you some Lolth blessed charms that will block her if you...>>36593319No way! I mean, my mother became queen 600 years ago but... I mean, non ever knew that she...She grew this Fryia to be her child then? And your guild to be her kingdom?
>>36593319Wait, how old is she? She was apparently around when Fryja was growing powerful. I am so many kinds of confused and I can't get spider venom liqueur anymore, and I have a sudden itching desire to look behind the curtain in the creepy room but the time isn't right, and I just want to go play restaurant owner.
>>36593378Thanks! ...uuuh which way are those again?
>>36593379If I what? And yes, she wanted to take control of the guild. She also wants there to be a guild to take care of, so we keep getting cryptic hints about dangers to come.
>>36593378Huh, that's odd. This is the 50th time in a row that I go to the wrong meeting place occupied by various monsters. I think someone might be pulling a big prank on me....
Dr.Stabby has probably guessed the right word by now and slips free. If he hasn't Oh well, that's why he has chloroform and viagra. Dr.Stabby untraps the muffins and offers one to his stepdaughter
>>36593379Considering your mom is walking around in Fryja's body for a meatsuit and the fact the closest she came to offing me was just before I ripped her to shreds I think it more likely her ploy at power failed miserably.>>36593388She was here as I was at the beginning.>>36593403To the left follow the corpses.>>36593410Seem likely.>>36593418it was I will never fuck a Drow, Jheska in particular. Seems prophetic now. *smirks*
>>36593378It's been a long day. I had to make friends with druids.
>>36593500No no no, Junior here.
I'm done packing!>>36593379who is this?
>>36593406>>36593500I am back to your guild, wizards to check on the conditions of our Lolth-blessed princess.My I have a word with you...Soros and Conspierre, it is?The fact that the queen was aiding the mage's guild was known, at least to the most influential drows, but since she had the favor of Lolth none dared to complain, until Lolth took away her blessing and gave it to her daughter. The princess is quite... emotional about it, since she has been nearly killed by her mother, and in drow society it is considered outraging to try before the daughter is old enough to wield a blade, So please be careful when you approach this matter.
>>36593520Jheska's daughter and the princess we traded Cromina for apparently.
>>36593520This......is Jheska's daughter. Jheska murdered her sister right before she invaded the guild hall. Life is confusing and complex right now, and I would walk nude into randolph's guilt free quickie pit for an irish coffee.
>>36593500Alrighty then! Now to find those enchanters...
>>36593378>>36593500Fuck you, I will not be eaten by a god damn mammoth.
>>36593537What's the girls name?>>36593547lordy
>>36593533We will be tactful at least, but there are questions that need answering.
>>36593500"Good thing I have viagra."
>>36593552Actually, I'm an herbivore. I kind of can't eat you....or can I? Never figured that out...
>>36593558Her name is also Jheska. I now have to differentiate between multiple Jheska's in my life.
>>36593533Also why didn't you tell me the princess was my step daughter? I almost went on sexcation.
>>36593533Kazran! Are you hiding something? Lolth sees all, as you, of all people, should know...>>36593558Who is this human male? A servant perhaps? Is he going to take my luggage?
>>36593549You're welcome.>>36593552Still herbivorous>>36593582You can't they didn't change your stomach.>>36593579You'd need to have a lethal overdose to have an erection.
>>36593611The power of boners is stronger.
>>36593533Tact isn't my strong suit but i'll try.>>36593608Drop it kid, trust me you don't want to know.>>36593604As if that'd stop you.
>>36593572Feel free to ask then. In the name of the alliance we signed today I will allow you to do so.
>>36593608He's an assistant. He helps with things we are unable to do. He will help if you are incapable of managing all of your luggage on your own. I doubt that is the case, so please do not badger him. Drink some of his coffee, and you will respect the man.
>>36593584Ok then. So, should I keep Noel away from her then?>>36593608I am Mortimer, The Dutitiful Assistant. Stay out of my garden and we wont have a problem. now do you know a drow name Tu'ulth?
>>36593611Oh, good. That would be awkward.
>>36593641What are any dangers we're going to have to protect her from? Likely ones and unlikely ones please, I'm sure you can appreciate the sheer amount of cosmic irony going on here, and it doesn't ever let up.
>>36593635If you say so *smiles*>>36593671Wouldn't it though?>>36593685Keep asking questions, i'll take her to the scanner and aptitude tester.
>>36593702Can and will do. Let me know if anything comes up.
>>36593638Dr.Stabby pulls out a cellphone and makes some calls but otherwise stays near Soros.
>>36593754Damn it Stabby!!!
>>36593754Yes? *cellphone fritzes out* Those doodads don't like me apparently.>>36593723Yup.
>>36593754It's that thing again! Quick, before our mothers try and get in touch with us!
>>36593773"what?">>36593780Dr.Stabby continues his call uninterrupted except for a comment he makes to Soros and MortimerHarry Dresden you are not.
>>36593685Aside for the most obvious ones, like your famous magical incidents, anything that sports pointy ears is a threat to her. Surface elves, those bastards, will try and kill the favored of Lolth on sight. This is all I can say for now, since I have to go back to guard duty, but remember that my men are constantly watching over her from afar, and so do I.
>>36593795>>36593773>>36593780Wizards! I request food!
>>36593870If the excrement hits the fan, she will be moved to a safe house, be aware of this.
>>36593888Here is a nice little selection of sandwiches I have made.
>>36593888Dr.Stabby hands her an untrapped muffin, that has a bite taken out of it.
>>36593888*sighs heavily and performs his best soros facepalm impression*Have you heard of Chateu d'Pierre?
>>36593853Never said I was, his world limits him quite a bit. Still the electric field I have up seems to mess it up. >>36593888Fine but after we get you tested and sorted.
>>36593905You are a good servant, this satisfies the favored of lolth.>>36593906Who is this vulgar man, wizards, and why does he tries to get my attention since when I have walked past the doors?>>36593916Is it a fortress, perhaps?>>36593920What kind ofsorting? Begone, foul wizard, Lolth would not allow you to harm me.
>>36593916Good impression Pierre, you've ben working on it.>>36593995That an has the hots for your mom, ignore him. If we don't get you tested and sorted then we can't teach you arcane magic kid. Fine have it your way.
>>36593920If you say so.>>36593995Not a word anyone. I want this to be a surprise. I guess. great, a dump stat in Intelligence.
Ok. Guys...Never try the poppies that grow out in the garden... Felt like I was in the dungeon dimensions for hours.
>>36593995No, it's a 5 star restaurant, and a favorite of the nobility here. I also own it. You'll get one meal so that you know I mean it when I say it is the best you will ever taste, and then you earn the rest with good behavior. Said good behavior starts with a series of non invasive tests to make sure you aren't harboring any kind of curses, hexes, etc. It will also determine magical aptitude, and help decide what schools you will be qualified to pursue an apprenticeship in. You will be either an apprentice, or a servant here to earn your keep. The choice is yours.
>>36593995Here, have some of my coffee to go with them
>>36594088Kid's naïve not dumb. Give it a rest Stabby.
>>36594031... is this arcane magic at least half as powerful as divine magic?>>36594064We will let Lolth decide, since my life is blessed by her word.Take me to this restaurant tomorrow, wizard.
>>36594106I mean I've said stepfather like 15 times by now, you'd think she'd picked up the hint.
>>36594112*smirks* I disrupted a summoning of Loth with but one well played spell youngling. I've slaughtered lesser gods with it. You tell me.
>>36594126More likely she was ignoring you.
>>36594140I can give it a try.>>36594106How dare you, I am 165 this year. I am no kid at all, it is your gross and bestial language that impedes my speech.

He removes the lid, revealing a steaming plate consisting of filet mignon, cooked to perfection sous vide, wrapped in dire boar bacon. On the side are mushrooms stuffed with crab and bleu, topped with a light crust. It comes with a wine pairingEnjoy.
>>36594200I am older than this guild child. The vast majority of people are children to me. Enjoy your food then we'll test.
>>36594126Are you related in some way with my mother? All of those dorw that claimed the same has been killed horribly. I wonder why Kazran has not done the same with you yet... maybe he is still playing with food as always.>>36594201>picks up a mushroom, giving it a critic's stareThis seems edible, I guess I can try. Still nothing as my royal cooks' dishes though...
>>36594299That's what they all say until they try it. I have acquired recipes that the surface elves have gone to war over.
>>36594299 At least have some of my Coffee to go with that
>>36594329You must be pretty proud of your coffee... I feel like the need to write it somewhere...
>>36594299your mother and I are pretty much married, making me your step father, or something. I am sure we will have the best father/daughter relationship. huh I'm going to need to steal a #1 father mug now.
>>36594361I sure would be surprised if this whole thing turned out to be a clever ploy, I tell you what.
>>36594361I've spent 475 perfecting the art of brewing coffee. I have every right to be proud
>>36594391I feel like she's going to go "Tee hee" any second now, be careful.
>>36594391Now if only you put that much work into your Stubupuncture and thief training.
>>36594401Yes, I have that feeling too.>>36594361If you are quite done, we need to do the testing now.
>>36594418Half-giants don't make good thief's Stabby
>>36594433Just do it here, not like it causes pain.
>>36594377No. I think I'll just order someone to murder a dangerous psychopath like you, for everyone that happens to find my mother something other than an horrible hag is clearly screwed.>>36594433I am ready for the ordeal.
>>36594474Alright then This way. The tests test your magical aptitudes. the scan will be run simultaneously. It isn't dangerous. *ushers her into the chamber* Alright. Starting test. *apparatus starts moving.*
>>36594474Dr.Stabby laughs>>36594515Are you sure this is safe?
>>36594515What, hey, what is this thing doing?... Fine. I have no fear, because Lolth preserves me from every harm and strikes down my foes. Therefor I will endure your strange test, wizard.
>>36594555Yes I designed it myself and it hasn't so much as bruised someone unless they did something pants on head retarded.
>>36594555Perfectly safe. Soros designed it off of my research.
>>36594572*orb is placed in hands and a target appears on the other side of the room* "Applicant please attempt to set the target on fire without moving, Concentrate on drawing power through the focus"
>>36594656...I wonder what it will do for conspiromancy, never actually seen this thing in action.>>36594441Do you know how much baggage she brought? If so, nearest high security room that isn't taken?
>>36594573Oh and just so you know, my two favorite people in the tower will be watching her, on top of any other security you have in place. Also, kill anyone claiming to be from the bakers guild on sight.

>>36594441yes they do. They just need to rob bigger targets.

>>36594733I think I'll make her cart her luggage up there and then realize it won't all fit. Or is that too petty? She called my food "edible." MERELY EDIBLE.
>>36594733and on that note, I bid you all a good night>>36594775Hey, its not like she insulted my coffee
>>36594705Uh, it is kind of hot here.I mean, very hot.Let me go, it is too hot in here!>practice target explodes
Yawwwn~Well, that was a good nap. So what...*a deep rumbling tremor echoes through the guild hall*...Someone. Start talking.
>>36594799Very good applicant. *target is frozen and removed temperatures brought down to normal* Next is Conjuration *chalk is palced down within arms reach and a diagram appears* Please draw this circle and attempt to summon a minor imp applicant.
>>36594835So.....Jheska had a daughter. Used to have two. Murdered one of them. Drow envoy denouncing her as a traitor promised information, if we took in their princess for her protection. Turns out the princess was Jheska's other daughter. Who was also named Jheska. Aaaaaand Cromina took an underdark vacation so it would be an equal hostage exchange. Soros is scanning her now for any trace of Jheska the Traitoress' fuckery, and I had to come clean on something. Namely, Jheska stole her body hopping technique from me. And my creepy room where I keep my backup plans.
>>36594838Fine then, just don't order me around.>scribbles >spiders start pouring in reality... uh, I guess Lolth sees this kind of thing as rather personal...
>>36594895Dr.Stabby golf claps
>>36594895*portal closes and summon dismissed* Interesting. *a wall drop cutting the area in half and a crystal orb appears on a pedestal* Please use this focus to see into the other side of the wall applicant.
>>36594937>>36594937Would it kill you to use proper manners? It is a princess the one you are talking to!...... is there the possibility that there is a spider into the other side of the wall?
>>36594835Oh. And Jheska senior tried to kill this Jheska junior as well. Honestly, I'm most upset that I have to differentiate between multiple Jheska's now. Jheski? What would that even be in the plural? Anyways, she's our peace treaty with the drow faction that hates the same Jheska we hate. Someone less tired than I am should explain all this to Noel so that princess here doesn't get incinerated.
>>36595017............... possibly. Please continue with the test applicant.
>>36595041I think I would disable Noel before Jheska came to harm.
>>36595070I don't think you're prepared to deal with a berserk Noel. Not in this situation.
>>36595070Unlikely, Noel Angry is far more akin to a fire demon than a mage.
>>36595064Oh, ok...... It is all spiders, I am afraid.
>>36595093You'd be surprised at the lengths I would go to to keep my step daughter safe.>>36595108Dr.Stabby pulls out a blue marble and rolls it between his fingers.Yes, and?
>>36595119*wall lifts up no spiders* Continuing *presents a broken thigh bone and a crystal to the Drowling* Please use the focus to mend the bone Applicant.
>>36595166The anticipation just keeps mounting, I'm honestly excited to see how you worked in a conspiromancy test.
>>36595166wouldn't it just be necromancy if it's just a bone and not a living thing?
>>36595179She whiffed Divination pretty badly, so unless she gets a really good score in enchanting and illusion it won't come up sorry.>>36595201Healing is necromancy Stabby just channeled positive instead of negative either works for this test. Also Noel angry would make that trinket irrelevant I saw her get tossed into the plane of water when pissed and it did nothing.
>>36595166No spiders! His guild could use some more...>concentrate>Bone crumbles into dustUh. Seems like I broke it, tee hee.
>>36595241Administer it anyway, I'm curious. Besides, when was the last time I actually used divination? With recent developments, conspiromancy is becoming more and more of its own school.
>>36595241Heh, thanks for the heads up. I guess I'll just go for the killing blow blow then.
>>36595243Continuing *bone is swept up and an angry dog in a cage is placed down, jheska is given a wand, the dog starts barking* Please render the animal into a friendly disposition with the focus applicant.*Meanwhile Soros' eye is twitching* >>36595277It draws from those 3 however, like pyromancy is primarily evocation. Remember this is for basic aptitude.
>>36595322You know what, I'll be back in a munute, I've got a good idea for a practical test.
>>36595317Getting close to her would kill you, I literally saw it happen.
>>36595322What is this monster? It has way less legs than he should...>stare at the dog waving the wand>dog slowly stops barking>dog tries to hide in the opposite corner on the cage
>>36595357If it kills me, it kills me. I'd do anything for family, even die.
>>36595416Do not refer to me as family, dangerous psycho.
>>36595414Interesting, continuing *removes dog and wand, a mirror is set up in front Jheska* please use this focus to project a three dimensional image of yourself out into the room.>>36595416Housefly against a Ifrit.
>>36595468Oh, this is kinda easy. Illusions are important when murder is currency.>materializes a projection, abeit an imperfect, twitching one
>>36595468speaking of which, Do youthink it bother her that I'm sleeping with jheska who is using Fryia's body?
>>36595526Very good moving on. *mirror disappears and a wand is placed in her hand a floating ball or arcane enrgy is sitting in the middle of the room* Please Abjure this arcane phenomena with the focus applicant. >>36595529If you ever got that lucky you'd never see her coming. Jake'ness would flinch at what she would do to you.
>>36595580so does she have a way to bypass fire resistance?
>>36595667Yeah, I gave her a few books on that exact subject while she was figuring out that cloak.
>>36595667She can use frost and wraith fire so yes.
>>36595580All of this ordering is just going to put your name on Kazran black list. >...>...>The wand utterly explodes,but so does the ball too> Jheska is knocked out by the magical feedbacksorry man,entertaining as hell but it is 6 o clocck here and I need to sleep at least one hour or two. Just do not let stabby anywhere near little jheska
>>36595742FAir enough want to stay for your report card?
>>36595742Pfffffbahahahahahahaha. Oh, I should watch these more often.
>>36595742Dr.Stabby rushes in to heal his little princess. Why you so worried?
>>36595761 I'd check it tomorrow. 10/10 mage guild though
>>36595780No, she goes to the infirmary. With her guard. If she says anything bad about you, you're pretty much blacklisted from the drow for life.
>>36595815Have a good one
>>36595742*healing magic is placed upon Jheska and she is ushered out of the room*Necromancy FDivination FAbjuration C-Enchantment B-Conjuration D+Illusion A-Evocation A+ Recommended classes: Basic Evocation, Basic elemental affinity class(Fire), Basic Illusions, Basic Enchantment, Basic Abjuration.>>36595815Posted. Get some rest you earned it.>>36595827Agreed.
>>36595827Dr.Stabby finishes healing her before you finish your sentence.
>>36595815Have a good night.>>36595863that is to say and physical wounds. she should still go to the infirmary and for any head trauma.
>>36595858Damn, I made a little clay city to destabilize too. Ah well. Wanna throw it in the aptitude tester? Two peaceful factions, elevate one individual to rule the city, obliterate segments of each faction via manipulation.
>>36595858>elemental affinity class (Fire)Umm.I, uh, know this is kinda unorthodox but...maybe we can arrange for some kind of independent study?Just because...well, you know.
>>36595958Depends on what path she takes. I was worse at illusions starting out honestly.
>>36595958why doesn't we just tell noel that Jheska wants her dead. I'd think that would make her want to keep the girl alive and well.
>>36596012Let's be honest, it was really entertaining watching her blow herself up, but if Noel does it it will be much less so.
>>36595938Sure for those who get good marks on the schools you magic draws from.>>36595958If she's serious about Evocation I think it'd be wise, at least until Noel cools off.>>36596012Not that simple sadly. Trust the man with future sight on this.
>>36596042did anyone record her blowing herself up? I want it handy whenever she needs to be taken down a peg.
>>36596084In triplicate in high detail. *sips coffee*
>>36596132Magnificent. Show Noel if she isn't apocalyptic, might help lighten the mood and alleviate feeling threatened by her.
Whelp, take care of my daughter you two. I'm off to steal a mug then go a on a sexcation. tata~Dr.Stabby pops some pills and pelvic thrusts out of the building. I think this was my favorite one yet. have a good night guys.
>>36596163It'll help certainly, until the issue with Fryja is resolved she'll always be threatened by her.>>36596181Oh boy this has cluster fuck written all over it.Have a good one
>>36596203So she didn't ping on anything as far as body hopping goes then?
>>36596233Still getting results in actually, her blood relation is playing hell with the system.
>>36596278Blood shouldn't matter, aetheric only. if blood was a factor Jheska would have been in one of my bodies originally and they're all accounted for.
>>36596278Isn't there something about keeping friends close and enemies closer?In any case, I'll try and keep Noel from blowing a gasket over this...wish me luck.whoever's been archiving these threads best do so soon, we're on page 9
>>36596306They share blood and are of similar disposition and aetheric composition. The system says she is likely her own person around 95% sure. We still need to keep an eye on her though.
>>36596333Good luck, I sincerely hope you don't need it.
>>36596335Keep running tests while she's unconscious, let's be 100% on this. We need to make sure Jheska didn't plant any seeds sleeping in there. >>36596333I'd make sure she doesn't have the cloak on.
>>36596391Agreed. I'm doing so now.
>>36596333archived. still disappointed that my "end of an ara" title didn't go through on jheska's downfall because someone else got it first.
>>36596486That would have been hilarious now I too am sad about it.
>>36596439Well, if you need anything, I'll be up. Still haven't solved the problem of possible drow getting frisky in my sleep, so its hitting Mort's Extra Strength for me tonight.
>>36596552At least I managed to grab this one as "A New Ara" to somewhat make up for it
>>36596569Sleep im quarters then, I never let her in there, and I haven't sued the bed in months. Going to be pulling an all nighter between this and Unraveling Jheska's spell over Fryja anyways.
>>36596583I saw nice one.
