Psychic Rebel Thread 19You are Shee Hyul, rebel and psychic. Your world is ruled by inhuman creatures and this has gone on far too long, it’s time to fight back.Character Sheet http://pastebin.com/fYSgcZdERules http://pastebin.com/LEEi5A3uArchives https://archive.moe/tg/search/username/Pally/type/op/And http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psychic%20Rebel%20QuestSetting http://pastebin.com/95D5RNhPAllies http://pastebin.com/yVgtiFeuAlly Powers http://pastebin.com/Xm6UGDyXQM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQMQM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQMYou’re standing in a luxuriously furnished office with an 8ft-tall hulking demon that just introduced himself as Garrax and claimed to be one of the Reunited.You were out dancing with Kae and Quinn had just told you of a plan by the vampires and fae to force all dusters to either be feeders for vampires or the fae, claiming they’d be farmed like animals.Kae hasn’t mentioned such a plan to you so you hope Quinn is lying. Still that’s a concern for later, right now you have one of the Reunited to deal with. Since the whole deal is that only one of you gets to survive at the end of this insane war for survival this is going to be a battle to the death.You tense, ready to summon a gun or teleport when Garrax holds up a hand and rumbles in a voice too deep to be human “Wait, I don’t want to fight.”“Oh yeah” you say, this is a pretty big room, you have plenty of room in here to dodge and teleport. You’ve fought in tighter corners than this before. But this is his territory it could have traps, plus the security guards for the club could be called up here at the push of a button.“Yes” says Garrax “Why don’t you show me your true form?”“Why would I do that?” you ask, watching him for any aggressive move.
“So that your allegiance is plain” says Garrax “to be blunt: I propose an alliance between us, but I’ll not treat with any champion of the Lord of Betrayal.”Well, that kinda makes sense.What do you do?>Hear him out, but be ready for an ambush>Attack (combat options in next post)>Flee (run? Teleport?)>Other (what?)
>>37609824>>Attack (combat options in next post)If he follows the lord of betrayal yeah no.

“Alright” you say “I’m listening” you don’t relax though, instead you’re ready to teleport or attack if he makes any wrong move.Garrax smiles, or at least, you think he’s smiling, there’s a lot of tooth in that smile. “Excellent” he says “Now I don’t know how much you know about what we are, but the Five seem to want us to kill each other in pointless struggles. I object to being their pawn, and I want there to be an end to this. To that end I propose an alliance of the Reunited that will put to the Five that we will not be their pawns, though individual members may petition them for favours, the whole of our alliance will not turn upon one another.”“So what” you say “A trade union of Reunited?”“Of sorts” he says “Yes”“And how’s that going?” you ask“Slowly” he says “Though a few are amenable to it, no one seems to want to commit.”“And what about those who won’t join?” you ask “They’ll get the hatchet?”Garrax frowns “No one will be forced to join” he says “or killed for not joining, but the terms of the agreement include a mutual defence pact: That we will aid one another. So if someone wishes to play by the Fives rules and keeps attacking members, then yes, they will die.”You get the feeling that’s not the whole story, indeed this whole deal feels suspect somehow.“I’ll want to know more before I agree to anything.” You say “Like-”“Ah” says Garrax, cutting you off “As I said, the champion of Baalzamon will not be invited, please show me your true form before we discuss anything further.”“How do I know it’s not you?” you ask “You could be Baalzamons chosen.”Garrax laughs “Before I hit upon this idea” he says “As you can see, I clearly followed the King of Hell.”What do you do?>Talk more about this alliance>Attack (combat options in next post)>Flee (run? Teleport?)>Other (what?)Show him your Gifts?>Crown of Green Fire>Tentacles>Both>None
>>37610008>Talk more about this alliance>Ask him for more prove, he could have gotten the favors of both, afterall>TentaclesDon't want him to think we are competition.
>>37610008>Talk more about this alliance>Ask him what Champions he has found>Tentacles>>37610023Don't ask him, there is pretty much no "prove" he could give that he couldn't fake, and I'm wondering if he doesn't know he can have more gifts. If thats the case, I don't want to tip him of.
>>37610008>Talk more about this alliance>TentaclesI'm torn, on the one hand, revealing us as Ichors "champion", gives him a pretty good idea of our genuine motivation.On the other hand, revealing favoring the King, could make us competition for leadership in this alliance.If he really is the Champion of the King of Hell, then he can't help but have to try to make us subordinate.
>>37610008Hmm...showing Shee's ichor will make her attractive. Ichor is the overprotective mother, so Shee would be great for the defense pact thing, expect a lot of calls to go help others.Showing the crown would probably focus on her fellowship prowess, though. Make it obvious shes trustworthy.
>>37610069>so Shee would be great for the defense pact thing, expect a lot of calls to go help othersIchor is most of all a very possessive deity, I don't think those familiar with her would be very comfortable relying on her Champion.Especially considering all the emotion influencing abilities she gives out.
>>37610008I have the strong feeling he doesn't want the champion of Baalzamon around because he would be the most likely to see through his bullshit, and possibly realise he is also a champion of Baalzamon.
“Alright” you say and concentrate, four tentacles slide out of your sleeves or from under your top, a jacket or blouse with a back that pops off would make this a lot more comfortable you think.Once out you wave your tentacles in front of Garrax, he nods “A devotee of the Mother I see” he says “I think we can work together.”You carefully draw your tentacles back in “So about this alliance” you say “how many are there involved, how many other Reunited have you found?”“There’s three in this city I’m in talks with” says Garrax, pouring himself a drink, though he doesn’t offer you one “And a further six in other Hives that I’m aware of. I want to form the alliance with as many as I can before reaching further, I believe that the more I have in this alliance, the more likely other members will be to join.”“So no one has joined yet?” you ask.“Regrettably no” he admits “The usual reasons, mostly they think it’s a trap of some kind, though there is one who I believe I’m close to coming to an agreement with, he’s just being...cautious.”“Go on” you say.“A self-taught chaos mage by the name Tom Davis, though he calls himself the Unseen Sorcerer” explains Garrax “He lives on Level 3 and mainly follows the Infinite Mirror. He has agreed to join me as long as we both agree to never attack one another unless in self-defence. He demanded that the agreement be magically enforced. I have, at some expense, secured the services of an outlaw chaos mage calling himself Xanthian. I believe Tom knows him and will trust him enough to agree to the oath.”“And the others?” you ask“All in good time” he says genially “Rather than take my word for what I’m doing, I was wondering if you might like to talk to Tom yourself, and if you’d be so kind as to pass on the message about Xanthian and tell Tom that I am willing to agree to his terms, though I cannot speak for future members of the alliance of course.”
Again, you have the feeling he’s not telling you everything.What do you do?>I’ll talk to Tom, then we’ll see>I want to know about the other Reunited you’ve found first>I want to talk about something else (what?)>Other (what?)
>>37610204>I want to talk about something else (what?)>How did you find me?>I want to know about the other Reunited you’ve found first
>>37610204>How did you find me?>I want to know about the other Reunited you’ve found first>You said "mainly", I was wondering how having one gift convinced you I don't follow BaalzamonSo, let me get this straight.His only other potential ally, mainly follows the god of opportunism?Yeah.
>>37610204>I’ll talk to Tom, then we’ll see>How did you find me?
>>37610204>How did you find me?>What is your endgame in this? We can't exactly stick around forever on the cusp of godhood, someone is going to be tempted to take the offer.>I want to know about the other Reunited you’ve found first
>>37610204>>37610206Adding>What is your endgame in this? We can't exactly stick around forever on the cusp of godhood, someone is going to be tempted to take the offer.
He's the King's follower. He clearly benefits from this with more favor from the King.
>>37610280For all we know he might be mainly following Baalzamon.Clearly he gets 'some' favor from this, but depending on his angle, it might not mainly be from the King.
>>37610288Well, the club is a strong indicator of him being the King.Shadowruns are good in certain measures, but please don't blow it out of proportion.
>>37610309>the club is a strong indicator of him being the KingNo? Assuming the club is from the King, it just means he got at least 2 gifts from him.Which is as much as we got from the Mirror.
>>37610309I think you are bit very naive here anon.He gets gifts from all gods just like we do, him showing two King gifts, doesn't mean he follows mainly the King.We could have had a eyeball from Mirror by now too. That doesn't mean shit, and the fact that he tries to pretend it does for some reason is more than suspicious.
>>37610314The club wasn't offered for the second gift, though, so there is definetly some commitment to the King there. This whole scheme smells of King favor as well.>>37610325I think you're being too paranoid instead and seeing trees having epilleptic attacks. So far your reason for him to be a Baalzamon follower is "He could be one!".
“First” you say “How did you find me?”Garraxs smile fades a little “Before, when I was still intent upon winning through any means” he says “one of the first things I did was petition the King of Hell for a Gift to allow me to sense other Reunited. It’s not perfect, it works better up close, but in my club, my domain, its very strong. I knew who you were the moment you walked in the door. I had my security intercede when it looked like you might be leaving.”So he probably saw everything on security cameras.“I want to know about the other Reunited you’ve found first” you say “before I decide.”“I suppose I can tell you about them” says Garrax “though not their names or locations, in case you’re thinking of hunting them down. Of the two others in the Hive, one is a devotee of Jagganatha and is a street fighter, he’s big, tough and brutal, but also smart, can think his way through a fight.”“Another walks a very dangerous path: He’s an officer in the police, commands a squad of elite cops that get called in to very dangerous situations: kidnappings, bomb threats and so on. He has been very...cagey with me, but I believe he mainly follows the King of Hell. He also has a lot of contact with Fae, so he is good at hiding what he is.”“And the others?” you ask“I’m not sure of” he says “I’ve not gotten close to them so I can’t be sure they are Reunited or just ordinary followers of the Five who have been granted a few Gifts.”“How does this end?” you ask “I mean we can't exactly stick around forever on the cusp of godhood, someone is going to be tempted to take the offer.”
>>37610360>The club wasn't offered for the second giftThe three gifts we get are random from a list, we could have gotten the club as first gift if it would have been picked for the three offers. And thats assuming the Club is actually from the King.> So far your reason for him to be a Baalzamon follower is "He could be one!".No one says he is one, we say, he might be one for all we know. Because thats the case, we have exactly zero prove he follows mainly the King.And this scheme might as well be a Baalzamon thing of playing us against eachother. And there is nothing stopping him from racking up a bit King favor while still mainly favoring Baalzamon.
Garrax laughs “Yes that would be awkward” he says “Once all of the Reunited are in the alliance, as a whole we present the Five with an offer: We will compete as long as the competition is nonlethal, and that the winner agrees not to kill the others – and for the Five to agree to enforce this last clause. I have no illusions that we can fully stymie the Five, but I like living, and I’m betting the others do too. So, now that you know, what do you say?”What do you say?>No (leave)>I’m in>Attack>Ask other questions (what?)>Other (what?)
>>37610388>I will think about it, you must admit, it sounds all very suspicious. I will talk to Tom myself and then we'll see. I know where I can find you.
>>37610388>I will think about it, you must admit, it sounds all very suspicious. I will talk to Tom myself and then we'll see. I know where I can find you.It all sounds very convenient and vague.But we can look up the other three first.
>>37610388>We will compete as long as the competition is nonlethal, and that the winner agrees not to kill the othersHahaha bullshit.The Five already told us we don't actually need to kill the others, just subjugate them.Which is exactly what this guy is doing. The moment his "alliance" has united all of us, he wins by having brought us under his "command".
“I will think about it” you say “you must admit, it sounds all very suspicious.”“True” chuckles Garrax“I will talk to Tom myself and then we'll see.” You continue “I know where I can find you.”“Of course” says Garrax “You can find Tom Davis on Level 3 in the Northern Quarter. He has an abandoned warehouse there that he uses as a place of business – selling minor spells to the people who live nearby. If you ask around for the Unseen Sorcerer someone will be able to lead you to him. Please tell him I’m ready to agree to his terms and that Xanthian will cast the spell.”“I’ll be in touch” you say vaguely and then leave. Outside the security guard escorts you respectfully back to the main dance floor.Kae, Quinn and Quinns posse are their dancing. As you rejoin them Kae asks “Trouble?”“Nothing I couldn’t handle” you say, wondering what to do about...everything.What do you do?>Just dance the rest of the night, forget your troubles>Slip away to see this Tom Davis>Press Quinn for more info about the vamps plans>Other (what?)
Looks like we are going to be busy the next few days.Keep Charun from going through with that mission, or somehow hinder it.Find the other three Reunited, maybe Yonsul can help us with that police officer.>>37610512>Just dance the rest of the night, forget your troubles>Tell Kae she needs to visit you in your dreams again. We have to talk and soon.
>>37610512>Try to find AshWe need to be fast on this to remediate things
>>37610512>Just dance the rest of the night, forget your troubles>Tell Kae she needs to visit you in your dreams again. We have to talk and soon.>>37610525We also need to find out what Yonsul knows about this plan and how she is connected to the vampires.
>>37610512>Just dance the rest of the night, forget your troubles
>>37610512>Contact Ash or look for himEven if we told him it's Quinn's fault, I still feel bad for this all and fear what it will do to their friendship.We need to fix things up ASAP and make sure all is well. There is also a lot we wanted to discuss with him, and was waiting to meet him personally for it.
>>37610512>Tell Kae she needs to visit you in your dreams again. We have to talk and soon.>Go home
>>37610512>Contact Ash or look for him
>>37610467Nah, setting up the alliance by itself is expression of mutually beneficial agreement, not necessarily submission.Although he might be setting up a scheme to eliminate his entire competition in one move and is using this strategy to both gain intel on the other reunited and simultaneously strengthen his position in the meantime.
>>37610582There is command and loyalty magic bullshit going on if he follows the King, I wouldn't take it as face value that its called "alliance".
>>37610512>Contact Ash or look for himCan we be nice to Ash at least once?
>>37610512>Contact Ash or look for him>Tell Kae she needs to visit you in your dreams again. We have to talk and soon.
>>37610512>>37610557changing to >Just dance the rest of the night, forget your troubles>Tell Kae she needs to visit you in your dreams again. We have to talk and soon.For tie-break, then.
>>37610512>Just dance the rest of the night, forget your troubles>Tell Kae she needs to visit you in your dreams again. We have to talk and soon.
>>37610609The vote has already closed, ten minute voting period, closed at 45:40
>>37610594>>37610596Oh wow. I congratulate you on your timed samefagging. That was quite the piece of art. Not bad.
>>37610615>These people voted for something different, clearly they are the same person.Get fucked, kid.
>>37610611Didn't come in in time, sorry.Seems tied though.
>>37610615Except not samefagged.As dar as I know, anyway.
>>37610626Dude, they just both happened to vote exactly within the last few seconds and increased the IP count?Yeah no.
>>37610615Strategically timed voting to avoid suspicion of samefagging for being late to the vote and unjust counter-samefagging, actually. At least on my part.
>>37610642Very plausible. Gonna believe that any minute now.Especially considering it would have tied the vote if the other one wouldn't have happened to vote too.
>>37610636...so? They voted at the end of the time limit, that doesn't mean samefagging. They were just more punctual than >>37610599>>37610609
>>37610657>They voted at the end of the time limit, that doesn't mean samefagging.If two people happen to vote for a minority decision just ahppen to do so in the last few seconds and one of them increases the IP count, you can't possibly try to convince anyone that wasn't samefagging.Don't be ridiculous.
You spend the rest of the night just dancing with Kae and the others. You end up visiting four clubs in total. Quinn and his buddies are well behaved: none of them try to bite you and only one tries to grope you, Janice you think her name was. When you and Kae get a moment on the dance floor you embrace her and say into her ear “We need to talk, how soon can you visit my dreams again?”“Tonight?” she offers“Sure” you say.Finally though it’s late, and you need to go. You’re exhausted from all the dancing, but also relaxed. Quinns posse are actually fairly fun to hang around with, when they’re trying to be nice. They bought you drinks, let you pick the clubs, and Simon and Steve beat the hell out of three strange guys who thought that because you admitted you lived in Dust Town, that you would suck them off for cash.You get back to your shack long after everyone has gone to sleep. On your bed is a note *Lirael is at mine tonight. Rainya* Oh that’s good, you strip off your clothes, wrap yourself up in your dirty blankets and just...relax...You look around you, all you can see is sand, you’re stuck in a desert, oh no, wait. This is a dream. You turn, looking around.“Hi Shee” says a voice, you spin around “Kae” you say in relief “You startled me.”Kae appears to be wearing the same expensive-looking clothes she has had on all evening and looks around the desert critically.“Been worrying about Geheganesh?” she asks“A little” you admit “The thought that there could be-”“Not here” says Kae “It’s only an image of him, but it could still attract his attention.”Everything around you blurs and you’re in the Hive, looking around at the palatial houses, somewhere really high up in the Hive.“So what did you want to talk about?” asks Kae “You got any good info from Quinn, and why’d that one guy Ashley run off?”
What do you say?>Tell her about the Vamps plan>Tell her about Ashley>Other Topic (what?)You’ll have another chance to talk to Ash in the morning
>>37610672>Tell her about the Vamps plan
>>37610672>Tell her about the Vamps plan>Tell her about Ashley
>>37610672>Tell her about the Vamps plan>Tell her about the owner of that Club being a Reunited too, she shouldn't go there anymore if she had plans for that.
>>37610672>Tell her about the Vamps plan>Tell her about Ashley>Tell her about the owner of that Club being a Reunited too, she shouldn't go there anymore if she had plans for that.Tell her everything
>>37610672>Tell her about the Vamps plan>Ask her what she knows about some noble fae making a trip into the desert>Tell her about the owner of that Club being a Reunited too, she shouldn't go there anymore if she had plans for that.
>>37610672>Tell her about the Vamps plan>Tell her about Ashley>Tell her about the owner of that Club being a Reunited too, she shouldn't go there anymore if she had plans for that.
>>37610711Maybe wait for that until after we talked about that plan.
“All sorts of things” You say “First off, the owner of Club Marakis is one of the Reunited, you’ll probably want to avoid it in future.”“Yeah” agrees Kae “Who knows what could happen, so...?”“Quinn” you say, wandering how to phrase this “Told me about a plan for the vamps and the Fae to force Dusters to either become feeders for the vamps, or the Fae.” You watch Kae closely.“What?” says Kae, seeming genuinely shocked “No” she shakes her head “Becoming a dreamer or a feeder has always been a voluntary thing, I can’t believe he told you that, that’s a lie.”She seems to be telling the truth.“So what do you think he’s on about?” you ask.Kae pauses then says “There wouldn’t be a global plan without my father knowing” she sounds certain “and he’d tell me, but maybe the local Hive Governor is working something out with the vamps, I am not sure, I’ll have to do a little digging.”“Let me know what you find out” you say.“Sure” says Kae “Now about that Ashley guy....?”“He’s a friend” you say “Quinn is, I dunno, playing games with him, and he wanted me to tell Ash I’d never be his feeder again, or his lover ever before Quinn would tell me anything. That’s why he stormed out, I need to talk to him and fix things.”“And were you?” asks Kae “His feeder?”“Once” you say “When we we’re just kids, everything is different now.”“So you weren’t doing anything but telling him the truth” reasons Kae “He’ll be better off once he calms down.”Yeah, hopefully.“Was there anything else?” asks Kae.Was there?>No that’s it for now>There’s some fae kids going into the desert in 3 days...(how much detail do you reveal?)>How do fae feed on dreams Kae?>Yes (what?)
>>37610785>There’s some fae kids going into the desert in 3 days...(how much detail do you reveal?)>We heard a rumor among Dusters, share your supicion it might be related to that plan>How do fae feed on dreams Kae?
>>37610785>There’s some fae kids going into the desert in 3 days...>That we heard they would be there, and there were rumors of them being at risk of being attacked there, and it might be what the vamps plan to use to kickstart their plan.>How do fae feed on dreams Kae?
>>37610785>There’s some fae kids going into the desert in 3 days...(how much detail do you reveal?)>How do fae feed on dreams Kae?>Ask her how much she knows or can find out about members of the police forces in this Hive
This is going to turn into Psychic Informant Quest isn't it? Not that I don't mind betraying Charon, he's keeping secrets from us after all.
>>37610829We need to tell her that, because she might be able to keep them from going.And if our suspicion is correct, thats way more important for the Duster than this shitty plan of Charun.>>37610785>>37610809adding>Ask her how much she knows or can find out about members of the police forces in this Hive
>>37610829Less that more keeping the dusters from getting eaten. We can't handle them right yet. Need more caches opened and guns out. This is saving the dusters, at least for now.
“There’s some fae kids going out into the desert in 3 days or so” you tell Kae “I heard that they might be at risk of being attacked.”Kaes expression instantly becomes guarded “How did you find out?” she asks“Just rumours” you say “I was worried the vampires might use their deaths or whatever as an excuse to kickstart their plans.”“Yes” says Kae, drawing the word out and looking away “I can see how they might do that. Alright, thanks for telling me, we’ll be on our guard.”Wait, we?“Are you going?” you ask“Yeah” says Kae “me and a few others, we just want to get away from politics and family pressures for a while and relax. I’ll make sure that there are some guards nearby on call or maybe I’ll order some police units into the area on training manoeuvres or something, thanks for telling me.”Ah. Now you either need her not to be there, or get Charun to call it off, this could get difficult. To buy yourself time to think, you try a different topic.“How do fae feed on dreams?” you ask Kae.Kae gives you a cool look “It’s fairly simple” she says “We visit them in their dreams, sometimes without them knowing, and show them highly emotional events, some real, some not. The emotion lets us draw off a little of their...well lets call it latent magical energy, everyone has some. Is that enough for you?” That doesn’t seem like a comfortable topic for her.What do you say?General>That’s all (ends conversation)>Are you feeding off me?>I’d like to know more about how dream-feeding works>How much can you find out about the police forces?>Other (what?)Kids in the desert>Kae, call off the trip (made up reason)>Kae, call off the trip (the truth)>Kae you can’t go (but don’t ask her to cancel it)>Just be careful ok (maybe you can get Charun to cancel it?)>Other (what?)
>>37610907>I’d like to know more about how dream-feeding works>How much can you find out about the police forces?>Just be careful ok (maybe you can get Charun to cancel it?)I think "the Kings headmans daughter will be there" is reason enough, otherwise we can just contact her again.
>>37610907>Are you feeding off me?Would you like to?>I’d like to know more about how dream-feeding works>How much can you find out about the police forces?>Just be careful ok (maybe you can get Charun to cancel it?)
>>37610907>I’d like to know more about how dream-feeding works>How much can you find out about the police forces?>Kae, call off the trip (the truth)Puh, dodged a bullet there>>37610930Bad anon.
>>37610907>I’d like to know more about how dream-feeding works>How much can you find out about the police forces?>Just be careful ok (maybe you can get Charun to cancel it?)
Could it be that Charun *wants* to provoke Fae into a retributive attack in order to attract more cannonfodder into the rebellion?
>>37610995Maybe he knows Kae will be there and wants specifically her captured for ransom.
>>37610995Possible, although I find it currently more plausible that Charun is being controlled by vampires using the rebellion.
>>37610995I'm more worried about Six being an idiot and doing it anyways. Charun's smart he know if that vamp's looking for a pretext would wreck our shit if they are ready for it.>>37611015We need to Gestalt with Lirael and see then.
>>37610995I still think he's the tool of a fae or vampire looking to take out its political opposition. The Rebellion is just the tool if some other power.
>>37611036>Charun's smartI hope you're right.
>>37611043I think its most likely only the vampires, they are the only ones benefitting from stuff like that broadcast.Undermining the fae works out for them, because the weaker the fae are, the more they need the vampires and are willing to give in to their demands, like that "enslave all dusters" plan, which the fae apparently wouldn't profit from.
>>37611044He's far more competent than Six. >>37611061Probably, we might need to do some checking.
>>37611088>He's far more competent than Six.Thats not exactly high praise.
>>37611061That broadcast also condemned vampires and showed their atrocities too. I don't think the rebellion is the tool of one race or another, but an individual of one of those races using it as a political tool. I don't think these guys are nearly as collectivist or threatened to be concerned about the overall welfare of their respective races, given their complete dominance.
>>37611102True, but he's s experienced and cunning, something Six isn't. He's also old by duster standards, yet still fit enough to fight. I'm willing to bet he's got powers like dad did.
>>37611107>That broadcast also condemned vampires and showed their atrocities tooSure, but any rift between fae and mortals, still benefits the vampires.The vampires don't need to be liked by the masses, they just need the fae to need them.So if humans rise up against the fae/vampire it helps the vampire.I have no doubt that some fae are very much questioning how useful the vampires are to them.
“I’d like to know a little more than that” you say “please.”Kae rolls her eyes “Look when people dream they connect to another reality, we call it Oneira, the world of Dreams. We draw our powers from it, and so we feed on people when they’re connected to it.”“I’ve seen the dream eaten” you say “People wandering around not knowing where they are, laughing at things that no one can see, not recognising their own families.”“It’s not...harmless” admits Kae “No, but it takes years of daily feeding before someone is that bad, if someone was only fed on every few days, they wouldn’t suffer any side effects, I’m told” she clarifies, then says sharply “and unlike vampires we don’t risk killing our dreamers by taking too much, think about that before you start trying to make me feel guilty, Shee.”“I wasn’t trying to make you feel guilty” you say “I just, I didn’t know how it works.”“Oh” says Kae, calming a little “Well uh, emotions flavour the feeding I guess you could say, and some have a close enough connection with their dreamers that they can feed off them whilst awake, just using daydreams. Some” she looks a little dubious about this “Even have kids with their dreamers but half-fey, I mean, poor them, but no one likes them. The fae families see them as pretenders and most regular folk can’t tell fae from half-fey.”“Thank you for telling me” you say in a conciliatory manner, then you say “This might seem a bit strange, but you said about ordering the police around: how much authority do you have over them? I mean, if you wanted to, could you find out about a particular person?”
Kae gives you a suspicious look “Officially they have to follow any order I give” she says “force deployments, files, evidence, I can get any of it, but any request I make will be on the Hive Governors desk in minutes, to give him a chance to hide things. I do know that the police are under a lot of pressure to find the rebels who did the broadcast, I hear there’s a task force being put together just for that.”Moving on...“Well if you have some police or guards nearby when you go” you say “You should be fine.”Anything else?>Goodnight Kae (ends conversation)>Can you find out about an officer in charge of an elite squad for me?>Other topic (what?)
>>37611156>Goodnight Kae (ends conversation)>Tell her to meet us again the night before she goes out, we keep listening for info we hear about that. Can't be too safe.

>>37611156>Goodnight Kae (ends conversation)>Seems between the Rebels and the Vampires this city is pretty busy Keep in touch Kae, I'll let you know if I hear anything else. This "plan" has me on edge. I wouldn't be surprised if the Vampires take a shot even if the rebels don't.inB4 the officer in charge of an elite squad is Yonsul.
>>37611156>Can you find out about an officer in charge of an elite squad for me?He might either be a great ally, or our worst enemy in this.Good chances he will be in charge of that special task force supposed to take care of the rebels.
>>37611156>Goodnight Kae (ends conversation)>Tell her to meet us again the night before she goes out, we keep listening for info we hear about that. Can't be too safe.I'd love to ask after Yonsul too, but there is pretty much no way to keep that from her.
“Well goodnight Kae” you say, hugging her “visit the night before you go out into the desert ok? I might know more by then.”“Of course” says Kae “I’ll see you in a couple of nights Shee, look after yourself”.Around you the uphive surrounding fades and you drift deeper into sleep.---The next morning you wake slowly, turn over to see if Lirael is still there, only to find yourself alone. You panic for a moment before recall that Lirael spent the night at Rainyas. You rise, getting dressed and washing and get ready for the day.What are you doing first?>Speak to Ash (comm?

You head over to pick up Lirael and Rainya, they are both awake and dressed by the time you get there.“How’s my two best girls?” you ask in greeting as you open the door.“Shee!” says Lirael, running to hug you.“Hi Shee” says Rainya with a big smile “How was last night?”“Interesting” you say “C’mon” You all head over to Charuns and you tell them both about what happened last night. You also tell them both about the planned mission, and how important it is to call it off.At Charuns you have to knock several times before he opens the door a crack “What?” asks Charun, looking rough.“We need to talk to you” you say“Gimme minute” he growls “Getting dressed.”Once Charun is ready, he lets the three of you into his shack “Ah Rainya” he says “So Shee has told you.”Rainya nods and you say “Charun we can’t do this mission, we need to call it off.”Charun squints at you with his single eye “Why?” he asks.“There will be reprisals if young Fae are killed” you say “A lot of people could die.”“A lot of people are already dying” answers Charun “This will send a message to the Fae, scare them.”“But-” You start“No buts” says Charun “This is a good opportunity, we’re doing this.”How do you respond?>Fine (maybe you can get Kae to cancel?)>Fine, but we aren’t going, you’re on your own>This is part of a larger vamp plan (tell Charun vamp plan)>Reapers daughter will be there (keep connection to Kae secret)>Other (what?)

>>37611488>This is part of a larger vamp plan (tell Charun vamp plan)>Reapers daughter will be there (keep connection to Kae secret)Charun still thinks we are in some vampires pocket, as far as I remember, so hopefully he will draw that conclusion instead of forcing us to make up a story.
>>37611488>This is part of a larger vamp plan (tell Charun vamp plan)I was out with a friend at a club. I heard two vampires talking about it, and how it was sure to work because>Reapers daughter will be there (keep connection to Kae secret)We do this they'll slaughter us all wholesale for their reprisal. We are not ready for this. We'd be waking a sleeping dragon after we stole from it's hoard. Win or lose we'd be screwed in the aftermath.
>>37611551>I heard two vampires talking about itYes, because obviously random vampires would talk about this secret plan in some random club.Makes sense.
>>37611568Ok. We were robbing a club and came across their electronic correspondence because the sysadmin was a retard who kept his password on a post-it note on the holoprojector.No, I don't have proof, I didn't have my flashdrive. Plus access would have been logged on remote server and attempts to store the messages or circumvent logging would have roused suspicions.
>>37611488>Reapers daughter will be there (keep connection to Kae secret)>And she is insanely strong, we can't do anything about her
>>37611664I'm not sure if revealing Kae's presence there will lead to anything else but Charun (and anyone else he passes the info to) being even more determined to capture her.
>>37611677Yeah, I suspect that too, but its worth a shot, and if he is that retarded he doesn't understand how capturing her is a bad idea, there is really no helping him.Then I'm afraid its mindrape time.
>>37611677If he's fucking retarded enough to not put together why this is a VERY bad idea, we gestalt with Lirael into his head. Odds are someone fucked up his brain if he doesn't get it.
“This is part of someone elses plan” you say.“What?” asks Charun. You lay out the plan Quinn told you, about the Dusters being used, about how this could be an excuse.“So what, we just roll over for them?” asks Charun “No, if anything that should make us fight harder.” He chews on his lip for a moment and then says “Look Shee, I’m not sure what your, ah, boyfriend told you, but if you could get any proof of this, a recording, a written plan, anything that we can use to rally Dusters behind, that would be big, really big, we could use that and we wouldn’t need to...do this mission” Charun finishes lamely, mindful of Lirael being present.“I’m not sure I can get that for you” you say. For starters, Quinn probably doesn’t have access to any real proof, if such exists, and you don’t want to go near him if you can avoid it.Ok, time to play your biggest gambit “I also heard” you tell Charun “That the group of kids going into the desert includes Kaelyn Reaper, who is-”“Reapers daughter” finished Charun. He’s silent for a time, then turns to Rainya and Lirael “Would you wait outside, Shee and I need to talk about this privately.”“We’ll be close” says Rainya as she steps outside.-Real close- says Liraels voice in your head.Once they’re gone, Charun starts pacing in his shack “Reapers daughter” he says, savouring it “That old bastards daughter, well, this is it Shee, this is it!”“What?” you ask “You don’t mean you want to kill her do you? That’s more trouble than we can handle.”“Her no” says Charun “I don’t care about her, but she’ll bring him to me, and I’ll get a chance, I’ll finally get my chance.” One hand goes to his face and caresses his ruined eyesocket.He turns to you “Alright Shee, thank you for this, now I need to go. In order to kill the Reaper, we’ll need an army, that’s going to need to be assembled. I’m in your debt.” He heads towards the door.
What do you do?>Let him go >Talk him down, tell him this a bad idea>Offer to get proof of the vamps plans>Refuse to go on the mission>Tell him about you and Kae>Other (what?)
>>37611737>Talk him down, tell him this a bad idea>Don't let him leave this room
>>37611737>Talk him down, tell him this a bad idea>Refuse to go on the mission>Threaten to reveal his plan, we are not letting him sacrifice everyone in Dusttown for his personal revenge
>>37611725This is personal, not part of the rebellion. This is a good way to get everyone killed.>Talk him down, tell him this a bad ideaThis is a very very bad idea. All for some personal payback maybe?
>>37611737>Talk him down, tell him this a bad ideaYou won't just be facing him, You'll be facing all the Fae all the vampires. They took this world when we were immeasurably stronger. Now? They'd fucking annihilate us and every other dust town on the planet because they could. Those who survived would be bloodslaves at best. I understand you want that fuck dead. But striking at his daughter would only get everyone dead. Him, us, all the dusters everyone.

>>37611725Oh, it's personal isn't it. Of course it would have to be.>Talk him down, tell him this is a bad ideaWhat exactly does he want to accomplish? Even if he succeeds - which he will not, since Kae will be prepared for bullshit - what does he intend to do even if he removes the Reaper? Is this supposed to be blaze of glory operation where everyone involved gets to burn, and afterwards Vamps or someone else gets to pick up the spoils?
>>37611737>Refuse to go on the missionNow we have to get her to cancel her day out. Welp.
>>37611737>Talk him down, tell him this a bad ideaWe might have to wipe his mind of this information to be sure he doesn't try to do anything behind our back.
>>37611788He wants revenge and doesn't understand how fighting fae and vamps army to army failed badly the last time we did it.
>>37611843This rebellion is retarded. We should make our own one, with hookers and blackjack.We should appropriate its assets first though.
>>37611864Easier just to get into leadership position. Obviously the leaders know fuck all about what their doing anyways. Charun and Six made it because one's cunning and the other is a good fighter. They obviously weren't selected for their brains.
>>37611864I personally still favor rising through the ranks, and as it looks, we will be making our first step now in having Charun step down from command of this cell.All the leaders are retards anyway.

You step in front of Charun, blocking his access to the door “No” you say.“Get out of my way Shee” says Charun, sounding calm.“You can’t do this” you say “No matter how much you hate Reaper you can’t throw all those lives away for a personal vendetta.”“This one will be volunteer-only” says Charun “Trust me, the hard part will be telling some people they can’t come, not getting enough people to come, Reaper has hurt a lot of people.”“What about all the Dusters who will die afterwards” you say “even if you manage to take down Reaper, and I don’t think you can, you’ll have an army of Fae and Vamps to deal with afterwards. They took this world back when we had an army, what makes you think you can win now?”“I can beat him” says Charun, then corrects himself “We can beat him, this time.”“This time?” you ask “So you failed already and you think this time you-”“Last time was different!” insists Charun, “Last time it was just.” He pauses, you take a breath to continue talking him down, but then he continues “Last time it was just your father and I” he says, his voice rough with anger “He killed my best friend, took my powers and tore my eye out. I will not, *will not* let him get away again Shee.” He glares at you “This is a chance to get your fathers killer and you want to throw it away? I’m glad he’s not here to see what a coward you turned out to be!”How do you react?>Coward?

>>37611997>And throwing your live away on some fools errand you know you can't survive, instead of keep fighting for the sake of all Dusters makes you brave then? Go try to fight Reaper if you must, but I will not let you drag everyone else down with you.
>>37612049Don't mention this, but this fits:Our dad and Charun probably ended up killing Kae's babysitter too.Probably a case of wrong place, wrong time
>>37612096Unless Kae is signficantly older then us, thats not possible, since our parents died when Shee was a toddler. She doesn't even have any memories of them.
>>37612096I could see it

>>37612238Before now we only suspected but didn't know for sure he had any.My wild speculation would be Mirror, it seems to fit Charun.
“Coward?” you say “Coward? How dare you Charun, I’ve gone into combat beside you, I’ve fought against foes much tougher than me and you call me a coward?! Your vision blurs a little and your body feels like its burning. Before you know it you and Charun are yelling at one another, insults and accusations fly back and forth until finally you scream at Charun “No surprise my father died, if he relied on someone as blind and as stupid as you! Or did you just abandon him?!”Before you’ve finished speaking you see Charuns fist coming up from below, aimed for your face.Charuns always been tough, and fast, for an old guy, but you’ve gotten a lot faster too. Charuns fist just clips your jaw, turning your head a little, but nothing more, as you move in time.In the moment that follows the two of you just glare at each other, breathing heavily.“Get out” hisses Charun “We’re through, go.” You doubt there will be any more point in talking.What do you do?>Just go>Keep trying to talk him down>Attack (he hit you first...)>Alter his mind with Lirael>Other (what?)

>>37612265>Alter his mind with Lirael>Apologize to Lirael, but many peoples lives are at stake hereHe is obviously being played now. I wonder who gave him this nugget of sage advice.He will do anything to make reaper pay. He does not care about who gets hurt, he just wants revenge.He has forgotten whatever goal the rebellion has whenever a chance for revenge comes up. Make the reaper pay, who cares about how many rebels die in the attack. Or how many dusters get sucked in the reprisals.
>>37612333I'd like to believe that we can still talk him down.
>>37612367Why bother? We've never been that invested in the rebellion. We'll just take Rainya with us and warn Kae about the ambush.

>>37612367We would have needed a double 20 crit to really talk him down.Or a lot higher modifiers.>>37612388And Dev, can't let him get killed.I am not sure, but I think we want change, but not a full purge like a lot of rebels do.The rebellion is nice, but it is obvious they are using the wrong tool. It seems more about making them pay then getting freedom, or even improving the life of dusters.
>>37612404Kae doesn't want it either. If we warn her I bet she can pull some weight around to make it impossible for them to attack, or if that's impossible cancel the trip. We don't need to let the attack happen and fail.
>>37612433Yeah I don't really care about Dev. He can go ahead and die. All he does it pilot a suit we built for him. We could just do that ourselves.

>>37612532>He's really useless.LaughingFae.jpg
>>37612532>We do everything better than him, as stated inThats the exact opposite of what that post said.What I said there was we could use the suit, but we have far better options that are mutually exclusive with using the mech.Dev is as useful as any other of our allies.
>>37612532And? If you're going to kill off all the characters who aren't better than you at least one thing, the fae and vamps would have wiped out humanity a long time ago. He's our friend and he can watch our backs.
>>37612503>>37612532Having more people who can easily free us from jobs and spending xp in a direction is a good thing. We can't specialize in everything and having allies who can do stuff to free our actions is good.Besides, sometimes you need some muscle. Or at least some that looks like it too. Even if Lirael is way stronger the he is.The suite can do a lot
>>37612565That's not true at all. How long do you think it would take to teach Rainya to pilot the suit with a clone? At least >>37612566 admits that he's really only good for keeping an eye out.
>>37612606>How long do you think it would take to teach Rainya to pilot the suit with a clone?Then she wouldn't be free to do things she is way better at.We only get so much XP, and while Rainya could in theory do that too, its good that she doesn't have to because she is far more useful in other areas.Someone needs to pilot that mech, because its a good weapon, but everyone except Dev got something else to do which is better for them than using it, so thats Devs niche, which he fills well.
>>37612628Substitute Raiyna with anyone then. Dev's easily replaceable if he doesn't want to come with us, or if he's too much trouble to get out.
>>37612606Watching our backs in life and in combat anon. He might be a grunt but he's no coward, Besides limiting Rainya, Lirael, or Shee with a mech is dumb. Dev is the best fir for it. it was made to help baseline human compete with Fae and vamps after all.>>37612649You just want another girl don't you?
with all this talk about driving the warmech being his niche, I'm now picturing Dev as Coop.
>>37612649He isn't easily replacable because we literally only have three reliable fighting allies as of now.We can't afford losing any of them.And again, if he wouldn't use the mech, the mech would be useless, because no one benefits from using it except him.>>37612659>You just want another girl don't you?Don't start this shit.
Upset or not, Charun does not get to hit you and get away with it. With a snarl you twitch and four tentacles explode out of your back, ripping through the back of your clothes.Charun barely has time to realise what’s going on before you’ve got all four wrapped around him, restraining him and pinning him to the floor.-Lirael- you say in your mind –Can you come in here, and ask Rainya to guard the door--Sure- responds Lirael. A moment later she’s slipping in the door, her eyes widen as she sees Charun pinned to the floor, cursing at you and struggling. As strong as you now are, he doesn’t have much of a chance.-Lirael- you say in your head –We need to change his mind--Take his memories?- Asks Lirael -Maybe- you say –But maybe more-There’s a pause. Charun narrows his eyes, looking back and forth between the two of you.-But that’s bad- protests Lirael –You shouldn’t--If we don’t- you say –A lot of people could die, please Lirael--His mind is scary!- Lirael responds-We’ll do it together- you say –You don’t have to be afraid, I’m with you--Ok...- says Lirael dubiously, and then the two of you concentrate and.......become one.Shee/Lirael looks down at its constituent bodies, and down at Charun pinned to the floor. Huh, maybe you should pick a name, as you are more than just the sum of your parts, whatever, that can wait.You prepare to dive down into Charuns mind, despite how bad it felt the last time you, no not you, the last time Lirael did it.As you do, you suddenly see electricity dancing around Charun, coursing over your (?) tentacles, one of your bodies thrashes in pain and you almost cease to exist. Despite being driven to her knees, the part of you that is Shee keeps hold of Charun as he thrashes in her somewhat weakened grasp, pinning him down.You dive downwards and into his mind.
>>37612669A bit more in shape and less of a slob, but yeah I see it. Especially once we upgrade it.>>37612677Sorry call em as I see em.
Charuns mind is layed and complex. You see his memories, his motivations, everything about him, it’s all here. But there’s something strange about his mind. He feels...confident, as if he knows you can’t hurt him. But searching his memories, his thoughts, there’s nothing that would...no wait, he has a number of weapons on him, he just shocked you with one. But he has a special one in a back holster, one with bullets that...that do something to mages, psychics, anyone with powers. Even as you try to examine these memories they fade, and you feel bands around you, trying to crush you.Charun doesn’t seem like a telepath or mage, but there’s something in here trying to hurt you.What do you do?>Fight off this thing first>Alter Charuns mind first, then get out Either way, options for what you do in his head in next post.
>>37612677>He isn't easily replacable because we literally only have three reliable fighting allies as of now.>pick some random duster off the street>teach them to pilot the mechWe now have 4 reliable fighting allies.
>>37612709>Fight off this thing first

>>37612709>Fight off this thing first>>37612715Random dudes of the street are not reliable.Dev is our ally, spend time to get to know him and get his loyalty.We have secrets we can't just share with anyone.
>>37612709>Fight off this thing first>>37612715Most dusters are far to freaking scared to fight. it wouldn't be that easy. Dev has combat experience as well. a random Duster wouldn't. They would not be reliable either.
>>37612715What the hell is your problem with Dev?
>>37612735A beggar we give food, shelter, training, and a better life to? They'll be far more reliable than Dev. He's just some kid in the rebellion for kicks, at the end of the day he still lives with his parents and they don't even know what he's doing. If it comes to us or family he'll pick family.
>>37612715Dev has a perk that allows him to get higher Constitution and Strength than other humans, so no, random people couldn't replace him.
>>37612756I don't want him to drag us down.>>37612775Neither of those stats matter when he's inside a combat mech.
>>37612769>A beggar we give food, shelter, training, and a better life to?You have to be pretty naive if you think pure gratitude transforms a random stranger into a trustworthy ally in a few days.Sure, Dev isn't completly reliable, which is afterall why he is in the lower of our circle of secrets.
>>37612790I doubt he will drag us down.

>>37612921You know what would keep us from wasting time repairing the mech? Another mech mechanic. But surely any old duster can do that.

You struggle against the bands wrapping around you, crushing you. As it tries to eject you, you search through Charuns mind for where this thing is. It tugs and pulls at you, trying to drive you out. Where could it be...there! Someone put some sort of telepathic defence in Charuns mind, you grab it and rip it out, shredding the horrible thing. Finally you are free to work.[Psychic Energy/Vitae 41]Charuns mind is complex and cluttered with a lot of memories, many of them unpleasant. It’s also now undefended against you, maybe. The active defence is gone, but there could be all sorts of tripwires and traps in his memories or other parts of his mind that could hurt you, or maybe him.What is the plan?Altering Charuns Mind>Erase this conversation from Charuns mind (no penalty, takes a few seconds)>Make him call off the mission (-10, takes 10 minutes)>Make him stop hating Reaper (-15, takes an hour)>Make him trust you completely (-15, takes an hour, This pleases Baalzamon)>Other (what?)Reading Charuns Mind >Don’t read>Find out about your father>Find out about your Charuns past>Find out about the rebellion>Other (what?)Rolls and votes on energy use will come after

>>37613128I think he just enjoys arguing, anon.
>>37613156We can't make him stop being a retard, so we at least stop him from getting others killed with his retardation.
>>37613192So we can kill them with your retardation instead?
>>37613210Last time we took over a rebel leader, we ended up saving countless lives. So obviously we must be doing something right.
>>37613210That's the general idea behind being a leader, yes. You don't get others to fuck up the way they want when you know better.
>>37613210Yes.My retardation is the jealous sort and doesn't want to let anyone else get people killed.
>>37613210As these anons say:>>37613223>>37613231The rebellion is pretty obviously run by old hands who are either being manipulated or so deep in their hatred they fail to see long term.
>>37613156Getting him to call off the mission is the simplest way to foil the vampire's plans to enslave all dusters and reveals the least about who we are and what we do to the fewest amount of people.Removing the past conversation is to undo the negative effects of it, such as our tentacular nature and having alienated Charun.>>37613182That makes two of us.>>37613210In a nutshell, yes.

>>37613305nice rolls man!
>>37613366I meant the countless part, but >>37613289owned me pretty hard on that.
>>37613408I actually meant countless because we can't know how many would have otherwise died, so we couldn't count them.But I liked his version better too.
just realized, we might want to try and replace that thing that we just ripped out of charuns mind.
>>37613455Yeah we might, at that.
>>37613455I don't think we really can.I suspect its some gift he got.Reaper took away his previous ones, but no reason he can't have gotten a few new ones.
>>37613435I've always hated that definition of countless. If you take 5 apples off a ledge on a windy day, there's no way to know how many would have rolled off if you just left them there. But since the maximum number of apples lost is 5, no one would call it countless. I don't know exactly how many rebels were there, but I doubt we saved a huge number with our different plan.
You start with the recent stuff, wiping away what just happened, that’s easy, the memories have barely settled.Then you go to work on the mission. Charun hates the fae, he wants captives to interrogate and ransom, killing a few young fae would be a bonus. You focus on the risk involved, the threats they could face, a bunch of young fae of alone? Of course they’ll have guards with them, hidden nearby probably. Charuns mind is suspicious enough to accept that as a good enough reason not to go.And the other Dusters, they’d get hurt in reprisals, Charuns mind rejects this, he barely cares about the other dusters. Then...it switches suddenly, Charuns mind accepts this as a good reason, not because he cares, but because he promised...someone. You catch a glimpse of a towering demonic figure with large wings, the King of Hell maybe? No wait, from Charuns memories that’s what your father looked like the day he...You delve further into Churns mind, searching for information about the rebellion, about your father. Yes, there it is, every secret he’s been keeping from you, every precious memory of your father, it’s yours n-Charuns mind...convulses and trembles and then it feels like it’s coming apart. You’re falling, no he’s falling and he’s dragging you down with him!You scramble for any information you can get whilst extricating yourself from Charuns mind, but you only fall faster, finally you accept it, and let go of Charun, he falls, whilst you don’t.You watch him fade away beneath you, the last thing you hear before he’s gone is deep guttural laughter and roaring flames.---You snap back to the real world. You are Shee/Lirael and you are floating above your bodies, looking down. Held tightly in your tentacles is a limp body, unresisting. You reach out with your powers, the mind is...gone and the heart has stopped. With your healing powers you could maybe save Charuns life but his mind is just...gone.
You feel shock welling up in one part of you, revulsion in another, and you feel yourself splitting in two, no wait, you’ve only just been born you can’t die no----You are Shee Hyul, and you are holding a sobbing Lirael “He’s dead, we killed him and he’s dead.”“It’s not your fault” you say, holding Lirael “I asked you to do this, and he had someone else put those things in his head, it’s not your fault.”You rock Lirael until she stops crying, it takes some time.You’re sat in Charuns house, staring at his dead body.What do you do?>Hide the body>Leave, let someone else find him>Tell the Dusters you found him dead>Other (what?)
>>37613530>Leave, let someone else find him
>>37613508But we also don't know the number of rebels.So, its more we have a unknown number of apples, and some would have fallen off, but we can't know how many.>>37613530>Tell the other Dusters he had a heart attack. He was old, and the stress and finding out the risks of that mission was too much.
>>37613530>Hide the bodyWay to go, Anon.
>>37613530>>37613569This plus get Rainya and Dev together they need to know.
>>37613530>Tell the other Dusters he had a heart attack.>Tell Rainya the truth about what happened
>>37613511>And the other Dusters, they’d get hurt in reprisals, Charuns mind rejects this, he barely cares about the other dusters. Then...it switches suddenly, Charuns mind accepts this as a good reason, not because he cares, but because he promised...someone. That is pretty twisted. We appealed to any good or caring he had, and the things we were arguing would happen, he considered a benefit.
Well...Fuck. The question is, who installed that failsafe? Charun himself, or was he all a fabrication? Man, I feel really bad.>Hide the body
>>37613530>Leave, let someone else find himWell, this is a fine mess. And to top it off now we don't get paid for those guns.
>>37613569We have a reasonable max though. We know we can't fit a million apples on that ledge.
>>37613530>>37613591thisMaybe we should also tell Dev about the gifts soon.
>>37613596He did seem to have a lot of loyalty, if not love for our father though. We shouldn't have pushed into his memories, damn.
>>37613596>He considered dusters dying a benefitlearn to read bro
>>37613530>Tell the other Dusters he had a heart attack.>Tell Rainya the truth about what happened>Charuns mind rejects this, he barely cares about the other dusters.Wow, no wonder Lirael didn't like his mind, what a asshole.>>37613610But we don't know how many there are, therefore we can't count it. We can estimate it, sure.
>>37613530>study what we learned from his mindMan, this was a brilliant plan. We just screwed everyting up forever, no problems at all with that. I'm sure he will come back as something else and retaliate for this>>37613597The coolest thing is that Shee is now a murderer.
Shee can just never catch a break, can she?
>>37613622You are right, I flipped it. He didn't give a fuck about dusters, but promised someone, Shee dad? To at least try to keep the casualties down, likely
>>37613530I guess.We told him what we knew and he had an aneurysm.I wonder if people who installed this on him will know what exactly triggered the killswitch.
>>37613622Uh, no, he accepted Dusters getting hurt as a good reason to not do the mission.>>37613660Not as long as retards keep voting in this quest.
>>37613672I'm fairly sure it was something our father did to protect his secrets.
>>37613678But based on your reply to me you are one of those retards, as reading and understanding context are beyond you. So stop voting, anon. Shee might finally catch a break.
>>37613657>The coolest thing is that Shee is now a murderer.You do make a good point. I fear we'll go redeemer in response to that though, and not bitter hate filled cynic. I do wish Charun was still alive, he was a good foil for Shee. A good advisor sometimes. Also he was going to sell a whole bunch of guns for us.
>>37613698I didn't vote for this trainwreck, it's all on you faggot.
>>37613657>The coolest thing is that Shee is now a murderer.She killed people before.The only bad thing is the connections we lost with Charun, we have no idea if he planned this mission himself or if someone moves without him, and we need to sell those guns ourselves now too.We have to get very busy now fixing this.Getting into contact with the other rebels first.
>>37613716Odd are we're going to be the new cell leader.>>37613742Yup. Almost a blessing we lost our job now.
>>37613729You likely didn't vote at all. Just waiting in the wings to rant about anything that goes wrong.
>>37613657>The coolest thing is that Shee is now a murderer.We were already a murderer. If anything, this is less of a murder than our previous acts of murder, since we tripped a Deathblock instead of actually wanting to kill someone.
>>37613716>and not bitter hate filled cynicIt didn't raise your Cynism, which is already pretty high anyway.Not sure where you get hate filled.
>>37613729>assuming I voted for itGood job not voting on this. Continue to not vote, retard.
>>37613697I guess that's an option. And it would have been ironic that it bit us in the ass.
>>37613698I swear it's the same guy in every thread ranting about retards whenever someone disagrees with him. His posting style is very consistent throughout.
>>37613757>Yup. Almost a blessing we lost our job now.You know.This is actually a good opportunity to ask the King of Hell for that Favor, chances are pretty good he will ask us to take control of the rebel cell or something like that.
>>37613742>>37613762I wasn't counting the kills Shee had to do during missions and the like. She'd probably have died if she didn't.This, though? Got into a stupid fight and end up killing someone very important to even the quest itself
>>37613802It was still more manslaughter than murder.
>>37613785I always assume all shitposter and assholes in this quest are the same person.It makes me feel better.>>37613802>Got into a stupid fightYou can say about this what you want, but it was not a stupid fight, Charun was about to throw away the lives of hundreds of people for his personal vendetta.
>>37613818It still wouldn't have happened if Shee hadn't invaded his mind. I'd expect her to be pretty broken up about it and blame herself, at least a little.
>>37613850Shee was saving live, something Cahrun didn't care about. As to the whole mental bomb? Who could have anticipated that?
>>37613850Shee had very good reason to invade his mind, only the part of reading his memories is what she can be blamed for.And I highly doubt she will be very broken up about it, she didn't even really like Charun. She didn't want to kill him, but shit happens.
>>37613884>Who could have anticipated that?To be fair we did know he had protections, but that he would be willing to die for that memory, or that someone made him die to protect that memory was something we really couldn't have seen coming.
>>37613888I don't disagree with the action, I just think it'd make sense if she blames herself for this.
So, with Charun dead.Who's gonna call off the attack?
>>37613935>Your outlook is bleak, you’ll look after those important to you, but you know the world you live in is a horrible place, you are quite willing to take extreme action when required.I doubt it.>>37613944We will, the rebels will need to contact us. Assuming the go through it without Charun at all.
>>37613922Exactly. Pretty sure Shee isn't happy, probably sad about it in fact. But there was nothing she could really do once whatever the fuck it was went off. She'll blame herself but not as much as she could.>>37613944Whoever the new cell leader is. So us or whoever Six sends.
>>37613935She'll blame herself, but won't really care that much.
>>37613968Being cynical doesn't make Shee inhuman.
>>37613968Oh yeah, our cynicism went up. Well, that sucks.
You call Rainya into the shack and quickly explain to her what happened, how you tried to change Charuns mind, but that he had some sort of mental defence and he died.“Oh” says Rainya, staring down at the body “What do we do now?”“We tell everyone that he had a heart attack” you say “It is the truth after all, we don’t need to tell anyone what else was happening.”“Yeah” says Rainya, distracted “But Charun, dead? I mean, he was always there, I thought he’d y’know, go on forever.”“He was old” you say “The heart attack story won’t raise any eyebrows.”---And indeed, it doesn’t. A few hours later you are watching a pair of Dusters fill in a deep hole, Charuns body at the bottom of it. Very few of the other Dusters stayed for the short funeral. Seems Charun had few friends.No one seemed surprised Charun had died, and no one asked any questions about you being with him. The Dusters just dug a hole and then got on with their lives.In the end, it’s just you, Lirael and Rainya stood around the slowly-filling hole as the two nearby Dusters shovel much and dust atop Charuns body.It’s midday, Dev is out at work, you’ll have to tell him when he gets back.Lirael is quiet, almost unresponsive, you don’t know if she’s upset over what happened, or hungry, or both, you know she used a lot of power when you were in Charuns mind, you both did, she’ll need feeding soon. Your own emotions are all over the place, but you’re keeping it together for Lirael and Rainya.Rainya clears her throat “Should we, I dunno, say something?”Should you?>No>Say a few words, can’t hurt>Say something inspiring>Other (what?)And how does Shee feel about this?>Good riddance (raises cynicism)>Guilty>Don’t care>Other (what?)
>>37614012No, our Cynism has been 6 since we beat up that Grev guy, it didn't go up for this.>>37614023>Say a few words, can’t hurt>Responsible. She couldn't have known about the killswitch, but she didn't mean to kill him.

>>37614023>Say a few words, can’t hurt>Responsible. She couldn't have known about the killswitch, but she didn't mean to kill him.That seems sensible.

>>37614023>No>Good riddanceHe was willing to let all the dusters die for his revenge. We did good.

>>37614023>Say a few words, can’t hurt>Guilty
>>37614023>>37614045This.Not quite guilt, because it wasn't her fault he had a killswitch, but she didn't need to dig into his mind and took the risk.
>>37614023>Say something inspiringHe had a dream... a dream of better world.Don't let memory of him and his dream die with him.>Responsible. She couldn't have known about the killswitch, but she didn't mean to kill him.
>>37614045Yeah. I forgot about it going up from the incident with Grev.
>>37614023>No>Good riddance (raises cynicism)He was an asshole. Sure,. we would have not killed him if it was avoidable, but his death is more inconvenience than anything else.
>>37614162>his death is more inconvenience than anything else.You have no idea just how awful things can become because of this, do you?
>>37614023>Say a few words, can’t hurtA vague apology for how his life ended and a promise to see the rebels victorious some day.>Guilty
>>37614023>Say a few words, can’t hurt>Responsible. She couldn't have known about the killswitch, but she didn't mean to kill him.
>>37614023>No>Responsible. She couldn't have known about the killswitch, but she didn't mean to kill him.
>>37614178Oh, it will become quite a problem, no doubt.I would have preferred to not see him die, but we can work these problems out, and if we do it right, we just went up in our position in the rebels.
>>37614178I don't like the rebellion anyway. From my perspective this was the best result we could have gotten.
>>37614335Not really, Charun was useful to us. Him dying is a loss for Shee, at the very least in a material sense.Not to mention it means we now might need to track down the rebel leadership to make sure this plan doesn't go off.
>>37614363He outlived his usefulness after showing us the old base. Now all he does is come up with shitty plans and overcharge us for brokering weapons.
You might as well say a few words “Charun wasn’t the nicest person” you start “But he looked out for us, trained us, and led us. He was a rebel who fought monsters, its little wonder he carried scars, both to his body, and his soul, he will be missed.”Rainya and Lirael just stare solemnly. You’ve no idea what’s going on in their heads. In your own you feel responsible for this, you didn’t put that trap in his head, but you stepped on it, if you had convinced him, if had seen reason. Ah well *if*. It’s not your fault, and its done now, Charun is gone and neither Rainya or Dev strike you as a leader.Six or someone else will send someone to replace Charun, or maybe you’ll be added to another cell. Huh, will they break you up and have you work with different groups? You don’t know what you’d do in that situation.And if they don’t send someone, or send an asshole? Maybe you’ll have to step up, either way, you can decide later.You look at Rainya and Lirael, they’re both looking like they need something to take their minds off things this afternoon, something to keep them busy maybe, or just let them rest. You’ll talk to Dev when he gets back and make a decision then.But what will you do in the meantime?>Leisure, reading, Simguns, whatever>Work on Warmech>Search for more vaults in the facility>Try to open the weapons vault you found>Seek the favour of one of the Five (which?)>Other (what?)With Rainya and Lirael?Y/NNo assumes they just rest and relax for the afternoon

>>37614465Once again, I don't want to be involved with the rebels. Charun dying is a chance for us to just get out.
>>37614494What reason there is to not talk to Ash?
>>37614441>Leisure, reading, Simguns, whateverAnd reassure Lirael she didn't do this.>Y
>>37614441actually changing vote from >>37614505 to >>37614482this
>>37614441>Leisure, reading, Simguns, whatever>Y>>37614489>>37614482We are waiting for Dev in the evening so we can take care of the rebel busines, do you want to start that talk with Ash and then have to go right away again?
>>37614494I know how to read.
>>37614489Haha. Two hours later we'll have accidentally staked Ash
>>37614509I hope we pass on that chance. I want to help them as much as possible.
>>37614425We don't have anywhere near the pull with the Rebellion he would've, and one of the other major leaders dislikes us personally whereas he evidently respected Charun, enough to keep us out of I9. Them trying to draft us into I9 would be inconvenient, as will the lack of respect people will have when we tell them to cancel the mission, if we're made into a leader.We no longer have a source of information on things related to the base or our parents. He knew a lot of things, things we still don't know, and it's inconvenient to lose that source of information.
>>37614441>Go talk to AshN
>>37614441>Try to open the weapons vault you found
>>37614441>Leisure, reading, Simguns, whatever>Y>And reassure Lirael she didn't do this.
>>37614533Dev doesn't have decision making power. We can delay talking to him for as long as Ash needs, as long as it isn't something ridiculous like a week.>>37614538>AccidentlyI'm sure some anons will vote to do so on purpose because he isn't a little girl.
>>37614441>Go see Ash. Alone
>>37614441>Leisure, reading, Simguns, whatever>Y>Talk to Rainya about that incident, make sure she still trusts us. And reassure Lirael.Gotta please Ichor.
>>37614582>because he isn't a little girlCould have fooled me, he keeps behaving like one.
>>37614533Dev was just a subordinate, wasn't he?But anyway, the rebellion can wait, the misison is in a few days.
>Leisure, reading, Simguns, whatever>Y>Talk to Rainya about that incident, make sure she still trusts us. And reassure Lirael.
Leisure it is, writing
>>37614629Its still better for us to clear this up with everyone, well, all two of them, before it comes to it.And we need to tell Dev our version of Charuns death, before Rainya says more than she should.
Could we seek a favor from the King next?Without the weapons sale, we could use the income from that Club, and most likely he will ask us to seize control of our Cell or something like that, which we will do anyway.
Please roll !d20+9 Intelligence
Rolled 7 + 9 (1d20 + 9)>>37614699
Since we can't really sell them anymore, maybe we should tell Six about the guns? The rebellion might be able to use them. After we clear the facility of course.
Rolled 13 + 9 (1d20 + 9)>>37614699
>>37614670I'm sure sooner or laer even Rainya will go away.
Rolled 12 + 9 (1d20 + 9)Hopefully we can use this evening to enroll Dev into that mechanics course so can finally learn higher ranks.>>37614719I'm not willing to give up on selling them yet, it can't be that hard to find someone willing to buy them from us.>>37614727I have no idea what you are trying to say.
>>37614719Man, Six will have a field day with Shee's ass after this. Charun was the one looking over her, Six can screw Shee up a lot now.
>>37614745There isn't anything Six can do though.He has no power over Shee at all.
>>37614745Yeah, he will. This is going to suck.
>>37614738>I have no idea what you are trying to say.Tryign to say that Shee will end up alone and friendless. Rainya will either be alienated or distance herself from Shee if we fuck up too much more.If she doesn't end up dead, that is.
>>37614738He's trying to say that everyone we care for will abandon us.>>37614719I'd rather not.
>>37614772>Rainya will either be alienated or distance herself from SheeThats pretty unlikely given how much Shee has done for her.Sofar none of her fuck-ups have affected Rainya negatively, and Rainya looks to much up to Shee to leave her.And even if she doesn't. We got so much favor with Ichor. We'll make her stay.The dying 'might' happen, but its pretty unlikely.
Shee's To Do List:1.Re-establish resistance contact2. Make contacts to sell the guns.3.Talk to Ash (TS)4.Repair Mech5. Teach Dev enough so he can do it himself.6.Cheer up Lirael7. Convince Resistance leadership to play smart(this is going to be tough)8. Ruins Quin's life.9. Talk to YonsulI miss anything?
>>37614817Survive and reunited bullshit
>>37614817Clear the monster from the facility..
>>3761481710.Kill that Scere thing that haunts the facilityPretty sure 4 isn't relevant anymore since Dev got enough meechanics skill now to do it himself.11. Get that club/restaurant/whatever for income.12.Find Tom and the other two reunited
>>37614817TS means time-sensitive, right?In that case, re-establishing resistance contact, convincing the resistance and speaking to Yonsul should also be time-sensitive, if we're going to be stopping the enslavement plan.We're actually planning on having Teacher do 5, and possible enrolling ourselves. Dev is good enough to do basic repairs already, I think, so 4 might not really be a thing.
Should we tell Six about the plan to enslave the dusters? It seems pretty relevant to the rebellion.
>>37614817Shee's To Do List:1.Re-establish resistance contact2. Make contacts to sell the guns.3.Talk to Ash (TS)4.Repair and upgrade Mech5.

>>37614902If TS stands for time sensitive, then 1. is definitly TS too, we only got one day for that until it might be too late.
