You are Shee Hyul, rebel leader, psychic and Reunited. 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/AnAspiringQMOld thread >>37744504“Lirael needs the blood” you say “and I, I'm an addict. It’s not the sole reason why I do it, but I'd be lying if I said it doesn't play a role.”Rainya gives you a look that’s difficult to decipher, then you realise that she apparently pities you.“It’s ok” you say to her “We care about each other” hugging Lirael again “and we each want the other to be happy Rainya, it’s not complicated.”Rainya just shrugs “Ok I guess” she says “I don’t get it, but I’ll stop bugging you about it.”Ah, seems you can’t please everyone...With that decided, you head out with Rainya and Lirael, ready to start another day. You do need to be at the restaurant this morning, but it opens at midday, late morning is soon enough, and its currently early morning. You have time to start something else before you go there.What is the plan?Shee's To Do List:1. Open crystal thing in your head (this is now an option)2. Make contacts to sell the guns.3. Teach Dev enough about mechanics to upgrade and quickly repair his mech.4. Activate psychic power5. Check out the reunited leads (chaos mage, elite cop, the brawler, etc.)6. Talk to Tom (reunited)7. Talk to Yonsul8. Clear the facility of serec9. Talk to Ash10. Figure out what to do about Quinn>Pick one or write-in
>>37748879>1. Open crystal thing in your head (this is now an option)Kind of necessary now. I doubt we'll hit demi-god full blown deity off the bat this is just the starts of a long road.
>>37748879>Go to the restaurantAll of the other things take way more time then we have. Or we don't know how much they take.Or in case of Yonsul, we want o meet her at the restaurant.
>>37748879>Go to the restaurantSo we can talk to Yonsul there, I suppose.I wonder how often we will have to talk about this with Rainya.
>>37748955I imagine she'll ask to try it before too long.
>>37748879>Go to the restaurant
>>37748932>>37748955We don't have to be at the restaurant til late morning. Might want to do something else and just set up the meeting with Yonsul.
>>37748976The issue is, there is nothing else we could do in that short time frame.All the other stuff takes more time, or we have no idea how much time it takes.Its sorta pointless to do anything else.
>>37748879>Meet Yonsul at the restaurant.After we're given the tour of the place though. We probably don't want her tagging along for that.
>>37748879>Open crystal thing in your head (this is now an option)
>>37748964I had nearly expected it now.I guess she still needs to work up the courage to ask.Its part of why I wanted the addict thing to be mentioned, because Rainya should know what it means.
>>37748879>Go to the restaurantAnd invite Yonsul after we have been handed over the place.
>>37748879>1. Open crystal thing in your head (this is now an option)We have to handle it sooner or later, before it causes some kind of problem.
>>37749064Yeah but not when we have very limited time. For all we know it knocks us out for a few hours.
>>37749026Me too. I wouldn't the worst thing though for Lirael to have another feeder though. Unless more than one is improper somehow.
>>37749074It wouldn't be*
>>37749072We have an hour or two anon. Just have Lir or Rainya check on us before work.
>>37749074>Unless more than one is improper somehow.Definitly not. Its the standard afterall, as Shee mentioned normally one Feeder couldn't sustain a vampire like we do with Lirael.But its not like Lirael needs another Feeder, and it wouldn't be good for Rainya either. To be addicted.
>>37749117It'd make them closer emotionally. I wouldn't mind seeing that, but it is mostly a liability.
>>37749072Yes, but we don't have a set time to be at the restaurant , besides i think this is a bit more serious than a restaurant we already own, being something we don't know much about and in our mind.
>>37749153>besides i think this is a bit more seriousIt totally is, which is why we should do it with care and in a properly controlled enviroment.Optimally we would do it in our reconquered facility, but definitly not in a shack somewhere in Dust Town.
>>37749203The facility isn't going to be safe for a while. As long as Lir and RAinya are out of the shack how could it hurt? Worse case we wreck our house and live with Rainya til we fix ours back up.
You say goodbye to Lirael and Rainya, as you head into the hive to go to the restaurant. When you get there the lights are out, and there’s no staff in sight, you wander around the Waystation and think you spot someone in an upstairs room.You knock on the front door and wait. Eventually it is answered by a stern-looking woman in a grey dress “Ms Hyul” says Ms Carter “I was not expecting you so early, please do come in.” She ushers you into the empty restaurant “I was just doing the accounts, I’m afraid I’m the only one here at the moment, I expect you will want to introduce yourself to the staff, but they will not be here for another couple of hours, how may I assist you?”How can she assist you?>I want to get to know all my staff better, including you>Talk to me about the accounts>I’m just going to have a look around the premises>I’ll wait until the other staff to arrive (short timeskip)>Other (what?)
>>37749227>Worse case we wreck our house and live with Rainya til we fix ours back up.You think that won't be noticed by the people living around us?Rainya and lirael and optimally Dev definitly should be there.And if we can't do it in the facility, we need to find another place with some privacy.
>>37749245>I’m just going to have a look around the premises>I want to get to know all my staff better, including you
>>37749245>I want to get to know all my staff better, including you>Talk to me about the accounts>I’m just going to have a look around the premises
>>37749245>I want to get to know all my staff better, including you>Talk to me about the accounts>>37749251If we do go into an eldritch deity or even part way, it could cause severe san loss all round. Being alone would be smart.
>>37749245>I want to get to know all my staff better, including you>I’m just going to have a look around the premises>I want to talk to someone in private here later. Should I know anything about the privacy of the rooms upstairs?
>>37749245>I want to get to know all my staff better, including you
>>37749282>Being alone would be smart.No, it really wouldn't be.Being alone while being incapacitated and helpless for a unknown amount of time is not smart.
>>37749311Let me rephrase no letting them actually see us until we're done. Don't need them going off the deep end because they saw something not fit for mortal eyes.
“I want to get to know all my staff better” you say “including you.”“Oh” says Ms Carter, seemingly surprised “Of course, what would you like to know?”“Uh, tell me a bit about yourself” you say, you might as well start there.Ms Carter puts her hands behind her back and stands straight, looking slightly over your head “I was born in Hive 39, I was top of my classes in school in business studies, whilst working at the Waystation I have completed a correspondence degree in accountancy and business studies, I have worked here for twelve years, I trust that is sufficient?”Well that was...abrupt.How you respond?>That will be all Ms Carter>How did you come to work here?>What was your relationship with the previous owner>Why serve the King of Hell?>Any hobbies, personal interests?>Any family?>Other (what?)
>>37748891>Because she loves Lirael?Yeah, but considering the topic currently, using love would have definitly given Rainya the wrong idea.
>>37749473>How did you come to work here?>What was your relationship with the previous owner>Why serve the King of Hell?
>>37749473>Why serve the King of Hell?
>>37749473>What was your relationship with the previous owner>>Why serve the King of Hell?
>>37749473>How did you come to work here?>Why serve the King of Hell?
>>37749473>How did you come to work here?>What was your relationship with the previous owner>Why serve the King of Hell?>>37749475Maybe. It's not that big a deal really. It's just slightly annoys me. It makes Shee seem cold, imo.
>>37749563I dunno. Matter of taste I guess. I personally dislike it when love is being used too fast and often.It means more if the person uses it sparingly, in my opinion anyway. I realise other people see that different.
“What made you want to work here?” you ask Ms Carter.She gives you a cool look “Mr Snow was kind enough to offer me a job, it was the best option I had available to me at the time, so I took it.”“And what was it like working for Mr Snow?” you ask, trying to get a handle on this woman.“I very much respected him” says Ms Carter “I wish him well in his new role.”Yeah that tells you nothing.“Why do you follow the King of Hell?” you ask.Ms Carter stares at you over the tops of her glasses for a moment before saying “This world runs on hierarchies, on ranks of power, the King offers the best way to navigate such, will that be all?”Seems she doesn’t like talking about herself much.Will that be all?>Yes>Actually I wanted to discuss (what?)
>>37749718>YesWell, no need to pry anymore than we have if she doesn't like it.For now, anyway.
“Yes” you say, no point in prying if she doesn’t want to talk about it. With that decided, Ms Carter hands you a set of keys, and goes back upstairs to her work.You prowl around the building, getting used to the layout, it seems to be just what it was advertised to be: an ordinary restaurant. You don’t find any secret doors, or spy holes.There is a very nice 3-bedroom apartment on the top floor of the building that’s standing empty, you could move in here quite comfortably.Eventually you hear noises downstairs that indicate the staff are arriving, you ponder how to approach things, you wonder how much they’ve been told, and who you should speak to first.What do you do?>Speak to everyone together>Speak to the worshippers of the King of Hell>Speak to the wait staff as a group>Speak to the chefs as a group>Speak to an individual (who?)>Other (what?)
>>37749946>Speak to everyone togetherafterwards>Speak to the worshippers of the King of Hell
>>37749946>Speak to everyone together>Speak to the worshippers of the King of Hell
>>37749946>Speak to everyone together>Speak to the worshippers of the King of HellI think the non-cultist part of the staff is rather unimportant, but it helps to shopw presence.
>>37749946>Speak to the chefs as a group
When it sounds sufficiently noisy you head downstairs. You can see the staff setting up for the day, firing up the kitchens, getting tables and chairs ready, cleaning.Your arrival does not go unnoticed, Ms Carter is in the front lobby, directing people and she gives a discrete cough when you enter. Everyone turns to look at you.“Shee Hyul” says Ms Carter “The new owner.”“Hello” you say “can I get everyone together, please?”The chefs are bought out of the kitchen, and everyone just looks at you, you realise you haven’t prepare any remarks.How do you try and present yourself?>Be professional>Be friendly>Be funny>Other (what?)Write-ins allowed, otherwise Shee may make a bit of a generic speech.
>>37750211>Be professionalGeneric is okay.And I'm too tired for write-ins.
>>37750211>Be casual"sup mah niggas"
>>37750211>>Be professionalThese, or at least most of the long term staff, are worshipers of the king.
>>37750475All of the longterm staff are.
“I realise you may not know exactly who I am” you say “I admit, owning this restaurant was a bit of a surprise to me too. From what I’ve been told you all do excellent work, and I have high hopes that will continue, I look forward to getting to know you all better in time, and I know we will work well together. I just wanted to meet you all, not to tell you your jobs, or to tell you what to do – you know your jobs. I want to reassure you that I intend for the Waystation to maintain the excellent reputation it has, thanks to the hard work you have all put in.” You keep things short, no sense in rambling on. After you finish there is some polite applause and then Ms Carter dismisses the staff with a wave and a “Hpmh-hm” noise.As everyone heads back you say quietly to Ms Carter “And I’d like to speak to the followers of the King in a private room upstairs for a few minutes.”“Of course” she says with a nod “I’ll assemble them in dining room 3.”“I’ll be up shortly” you say.You give them time to assemble, pondering what to say or do when you head up. For most of the staff some generic comments are fine, but these are people who already know, or think they know, your secrets, and some of them are criminals, something more may be required. Thankfully, you have two easy to display gifts, evidence of favour of the Five.What tone will you take with the followers of the King of Hell?>Commanding>Friendly>Professional>Other (what?)And will you display your green crown?>Y/NAnd/or Tentacles?>Y/NKing of Hell is pleased by Commanding tone AND green crown
>>37750670>King of Hell is pleased by Commanding tone AND green crownTo clarify, doing both pleases him, one or the other alone, does not
>>37750670>ProfessionalCrown>YTentacles>NDoes that mean he is pleased if we do both, or either?
>>37750670>ProfessionalYNEh, we don't need his favor that bad, and we are way too green in this business to start with commanding.
ok, tied for commanding and professional, I'm calling it in favour of professional.Writing.You are about to manifest a crown of green fire, please pick an appearance whilst I write.>Crown: Regal and impressive, richly designed.>Wreath: Simple and appears alive>Aura: Flames flickering and dancing around youOr write-in.10 minute vote.

>>37750290I'm sad that I was not on earlier to back this.
>>37751107Huh, adding an insult to 4chan made it not register as spam.
>>37751077It also looks really stupid.

You gave a business-like speech to all the staff, no reason to change your tack now.With a much smaller group in the dining room: the chefs – Tenley and Gambon; the deputy manager – Ms Carter; and three of the waitresses - Alice, Shania, Felicity, you make a few more remarks.“As I have already said” you say to them all “I look forward to working with you all, and I expect you to maintain the high standards you have set. I will be dropping by from time to time, with friends, or business associates. I would appreciate your discretion in these matters, and I know I can rely on you. Don’t be afraid to bring me any concerns, be honest with me, and I’ll return the favour.”Most of the people you are talking to are giving little expression, or are smiling, but not in a way that seems genuine. Well, you’ll have time to get to know them. Ms Carter is frowning slightly. Maybe professional wasn’t the way to go, time to break out the finale.You concentrate and wreath of green fire in the shape of leaves and plant-life grows rapidly around your head and you finish with “And speaking of favour, I am favoured by the King of Hell, don’t doubt that.”Around the room there are a few gasps, and approving nods, and Ms Carter finally stops looking like a disapproving schoolteacher.“That will be all” you say, and the staff files out.Ms Carter is the last one to go, as she leaves she turns to you and says quietly “That was a good call with the gift of green fire Ms Hyul, but a word of advice: Followers of the King respect authority, not the light-touch management leadership currently in vogue in business.” And then she turns and leaves.What will you do now?>Speak to a group of staff (which?)>Speak to individual staff member (who?)>Just hang around and observe the business for a while (how long?)>Leave (options for next task in next post)>Other (what?)
>>37751448>Invite Yonsul to talk

>>37751448Talk to best girl
>>37751616>Doing shit to cater to the expectatations of the helpThe King would be disappointed son.
>>37751653The King is already disappointed that we didn't establish our authority properly. It has nothing to do with their expectations.
>>37751683It has everything to do with Shee doing things her way. Not how someone else wants her to do it.Otherwise we might as well go to the King and become his Champion aka. bitch right now, if we just do things how he wants them done.
You send a message to the sergeant, short and to the point, giving the address of the Waystation, and requesting a meeting.Barely a half-hour passes before the sergeant is knocking on the door, just before the place opens, you let her in“Shee” says the sergeant looking around “what’s this?”“Not here” you say, “follow me.” You head upstairs to one of the smaller dining rooms, once in private you say to sergeant Yonsul “I’ve got a lot to tell you”.“Are we safe here?” she asks, folding her arms “As safe as we can be” you say, sitting in one of the chairs “Kae told me something interesting” you say, outlining the bribery involving the Governors advisors. Sergeant Yonsul takes a seat opposite you and starts taking notes, writing down every scrap of information you can pull out of your memory, until it’s all been said.“That’s good” she says, a grin on her face “That’s really good, with this, we can really start squeezing a few people, anything else?” she looks at you, hopefully.How do you respond?>Tell her about Quinn>Tell her about your restaurant>Talk about the Serec>Talk about the Reclamation>Ask her about winged vampires>Invite her to have lunch with you>Other topic (what?)

>>37752178Having written it, I doubt its quite in our favor enough.He is hard to figure out, but generally I think you need to take advantage of someone to please him with opportunism.
“Yes” you say, gesturing to the place around you “this is going to become your new favourite restaurant” you say grandly.“What?” asks Yonsul, straightening up and looking confused.“Well I can’t be busted for possession all the time” you say “not now I’m a respectable business owner, so I figure you visiting my restaurant is a good excuse for us to me, in fact, why don’t we start with some lunch.”You press a button on the table and a voice, one of the wait staff says “Yes Ms Hyul?”“Two lunch menus please” you say, with a smirk at Sara Yonsul. Who has gone from confused, to amazed, to slightly suspicious.“On my way” promises the voice, you turn the comm. off.“How?” asks Sara“A distant relative left it to me” you say “a surprise, but a welcome one, I’ve not tried the food yet, so I can’t recommend you anything.”A half-hour later you and Sara are tucking into your starters “This is great shrimp!” says the sergeant, at least, that’s what you think she said around that mouthful she’s chewing on.“Mmmh-hmm” you agree, your own mouth full as well. Damn, it’s been so long since you had real food, even a simple entree is heaven...When you have stopped revelling in the taste and the texture of your dish you say to the sergeant “I heard some more about the vampire meeting” you say “As well as maybe a way to find out more.”“Go on” she says.“First though” you say “I want to know, why do you get all the *vamp business*?”Instantly her expression, her whole body language changes, going from relaxed enjoyment to closed, suspicious.“That’s personal” she says “I don’t like to talk about it.”Huh, seems like this is a touchy subject....How do you respond?>Ok, I’ll tell you anyway>One secret for another, tell me, and I’ll tell you what I know (this pleases the Infinite Mirror)>Change topic (to what?)>Other (what?)

“One secret for another” you say evenly “this is big news, and if its personal, then I’m sorry, but I still need to know.”Sara nods slowly, giving you a hard stare “Alright” she says “Alright...my mother was a feeder” she says in a voice devoid of emotion “A blood-whore actually, she’d let vampires feed of her for money. Until one day a vampire came to rescue her” her voice turns bitter “her knight in shining armour, treated her well, got her an apartment, made sure she never had to get bitten for money again. She was his” her voice becomes a growl “personal feeder after all.”“And when she was loyal to him, in love with him” she says, her voice once again drained of emotion “he started abusing her, oh it started slowly at first, little things, the apartment wasn’t clean enough, the food was cooked wrong, who was that man she had been talking to. Then it got worse, yelling, threats, beatings, feeding on her when she said *no*, including” she swallows “when she was pregnant.”“Now you could say” says the sergeant “that he had an excuse, that he was married to a high society vampire, that he’d married into a powerful family, and that he had to act a certain way, be a certain way with them, always professional, always successful, and put up with his wife sleeping with whomever she pleased. Or you could say that everything he did was his own fault.”She pauses, you open your mouth to say something, and then she continues “Now feeding a vampire is addictive, it’s pretty well known, but what is not as well known is that when a vampire feeds off a pregnant woman, the baby gets a taste of it as well, and on a developing brain that leaves a mark. Oh the kid doesn’t know it” she chokes out, her hands clenching into fists on the table “But the first time she gets bitten, she knows she is an addict, and will be her whole life.”
Sara takes a deep breath, then another, and then says in a more even tone “So now you know, I hate vamps, and you know why, so please, do tell me how we can screw the bastards?”Well you owe her an explanation now, but is there anything you want to say first?>No, on with the explanation>Try to comfort her>I’m a bite addict too>Hold her hands>Other (what?)

When you are struck or affected by any supernatural power you may make a Willpower roll and spend 10 psychic energy to absorb it.You may use an absorbed spell or power once in the encounter, for no extra psychic energy cost.At the end of the encounter you may permanently absorb the spell or power, at an XP cost, if you do not have sufficient XP the power is lost.A permanently absorbed power is added to your abilities any may be used at any time, at a variable psychic energy cost.You must be affected by the power to absorb it, dodging or avoiding it means you cannot absorb it. Resisting it does not prevent you from absorbing it.Some powers may not be absorbed at QM discretion.This does not have later levels.Clouded ReflectionNone of your Gifts with obvious physical effects show on your form unless you are using them or wish them to show. This Gift does not have higher ranks, sufficiently powerful magic can pierce this disguise.Split SelfThis works the same as Rainyas Duplication power but the XP costs to gain extra ranks is higher (8XP/rank) and you need to spend Psychic Energy to use it.Expansions include making a duplicate *permanent* (no PE cost to summon), splitting just your mind (one body with 2 minds: one controls the body whilst the other uses psychic powers or purely mental gifts) and Combining (fusing with another person physically and mentally) to combine your powers and abilities.Vote will be posted in 10 minutes
>>37753249Me too but I've missread votes before.
Rolled 19 + 7 (1d20 + 7)>>37753289>>37753323Why is there constantly at least one nat1?
Rolled 6 + 7 (1d20 + 7)>>37753333Absorb Spell, no contest.Seriously, being able to eat spells and powers and permanently learn them is an incredibly broken power and we keep an XP reserve most of the time anyway, so it's very rare that we'll miss one of the good ones.
>>37753333Clouded Reflection seems best but Absorb Spell also looks good.
>>37753333Absorb Spell is cool, but the 10 energy is pretty damn expensive. Might be good against the fae though.Its pretty fantastic. Split Self in total might be better, but thats All the potnetial gifts being about as good as that one gift.Yeah I think I go with Absorb.
>>37753443We already have something that does the same thing as Clouded Reflection, all CR would do is make the DC harder.
>>37753333Gonna have to go with absorb. We blue mage now
>>37753333What happens if our Duplicate uses Absorb Spell? Can we get the spell after reuniting again, or is it lost?
>>37753333Guys, this Split Self.Double the Shee, double the tentacles.
>>37753503>all CR would do is make the DC harderWhich isn't a bad thing by no means. Its just completly blown away by the other two.
>>37753503I couldn't remember what won that vote and thought this was the same thing, my bad.
>>37753333>>37753517Also waiting for the answer to>What happens if our Duplicate uses Absorb Spell?
Pally. You forgot the shaping roll again.
>>37753333I think Absorb Spell is incredibly useful. We are likely to encounter a very large number of effects on later levels when we start fighting big league guys and there are bound to be some useful ones we can't get otherwise. Plus it is always nice to have a variety of different spells so you can't get countered or predictable.
>>37753333Does stuff like Horrifying Gaze count as spell or power for Absorb Spell?
>>37753648We could get Kae to hit us with some of her better spells as a kind of starter pack as well.
>>37753711>Hit me with your best shot Kae! Come on!>Everything alright Shee...?>Give me what you got!
>>37753333CR isn't really relevant right now, "Fusing" sounds 2lewd4me, so Absorb it is.
>>37753765>Shee is now a grease spot.
>>37753333Do absorbed spells and powers still affect us before the power activates or does the absorption effectively negate them on top of giving us one 'charge' of them?
>>37753861>Resisting it does not prevent you from absorbing it.Since this is specified, it seems clear that it doesn't negate the spell.
>>37753643Sorry, I've not slept muchSorry I'm late on vote>Absorb Spell>Clouded Reflection>Split Self5 minute vote>>37753517You get the spell the duplicate absorbed>>37753706Yes>>37753861they affect you as normal, absorbing does not stop this
>>37753907>Split selfBetween our own psychic powers and the 5 gods I feel like we have access to every spell out there already.
>>37753907>Sorry, I've not slept muchThat makes two of us then, I'm basically just soldiering on since you started Friday >Absorb Spell
>>37753979Even if we don't learn it, smacking them back with a free spell is pretty good too.
Well I think it's petty clear that lewd fusion won.I'm joking, adding Absorb spell to sheet.
You take Sara’s hands in yours, eventually her fingers uncurl and she grips you tightly with her calloused hands.“I’m not going to pretend it’s the same” you say “but I’m a bite addict too, I know what it’s like fighting the need, the desire, the ache to do anything to let them bite you.”“How do you manage it?” asks Sara in a whisper, you see wetness glistening at the corners of her eyes.“At first” you say “I avoided vampires entirely, now...I’ve found a good vamp, one who I trust, who won’t hurt me.”Sara takes a hand out of yours and wipes her eyes with a napkin “Well take care” she says “They can turn on you at any time.”“Some can” you concede, and then you head into the explanation...---“So let me get this straight” says sergeant Yonsul, all professional again, as you wait for the main course to arrive “Some vamp so important and powerful that treaties dictate where he can and can’t go is coming, the vamps don’t want anyone knowing, the fae might go to war if they knew he was coming here. His arrival is part of a plot to turn everyone” she growls “into feeders and the only lead you have is in the head of the Crimsonthorne kid.”“That’s about it yes” you say.“Damn”, says sergeant Yonsul, leaning back in her chair, “damn...”“Yeah” you say “That was my thought too, I was wondering about police protection for Quinn, maybe.”Sara’s headshake tells you what you already suspected, and her words confirm it “Officially we can” she says “but unofficially, the Crimsonthornes have too much power, he’d be found out, the only way it could work,” she gives you a significant look “is if you took him away yourself and hid him somewhere.”The facility might work but...“But you’d need to get him blood” says the sergeant “and keep an eye on him.”“That” you say “wouldn’t be easy...” though maybe Ash can help somehow.“So then?” asks the sergeant “What do you suggest? I mean, the party is only a week away now.”
What’s the plan with Quinn?>Not sure yet (delays decision)>I’ll make him talk (mind control)>I’ll be nice to him (ick!)>Kae and I will work on it>I’ll hide Quinn away for his protection>Other (what?) No favour for these because general categories, specifics to be decided later.Apologies to keep re-voting on this, but *decide later* will always be an option – right up until the party is here, and Shee may change her mind of course when she has more info.
>>37754155>Kae and I will work on itDouble team mindrape.
>>37754155>Kae and I will work on it
>>37754125>Kae and I will work on it
>>37754155>I’ll hide Quinn away for his protectionI bet giving him a few droplets of blood will be enough. Shee's blood is the best ambrosia thanks to Ichor.Also, no need to mindrape him.
>>37754155>Kae and I will work on it>We can offer ot hide him, or we can take his mind apart.Between us and Kae, that shouldn't be too hard.I'm not very happy about the "I found someone" bit, but considering previous such cases, and we had to say 'something, I'm just gonna say its not a big deal.
>>37754155>>I’ll hide Quinn away for his protectionWe can hide him in the facility and supply him with blood bags until we can learn whats up and either get him off world, get a new id or off him.
>>37754155>I’ll hide Quinn away for his protection
>>37754155>Kae and I will work on it>>37754232Quinn will not get Shees blood.Ever.
>>37754266Also the facility probably has areas shielded against magic detection and such.
>>37754155>Kae and I will work on it>I’ll hide Quinn away for his protectionDream visit tag team.
>>37754302Then use blood bags, like the more sane person suggested.
>>37754155>Kae and I will work on it>>37754266Thats a posibility we could do. Should still work it out with Kae though. She can help get the supplies.
>>37754155>Kae and I will work on it>>37754266Only way I'd be okay with him having a sip of Shee is if it was the Acid.
>>37754335Yeah sure. If he agrees to protection we can hide him and give him blood bags, or Ash 'arranges something'.
>>37754391Dude i meant blood bags from a blood bank or black market.
>>37754155>Kae and I will work on it>Ask her if she knows of anyway to get a hold of a large amount of blood bags.
If we wan to hide Quinn in the facility, then its probably time to tell Rainya and Dev about Ash.
>>37754155Can we have a revote, i think some people voted thinking we would have to feed him ourself if we hid him?
>>37754696No. One guy suggested that, and some people commented on it.
“I’ll think about offering him protection myself” you say with a shrug “I’ll need to get together with Kae, maybe we can work something out to get it out of him, if we can’t, I’ll offer him protection as a back-up plan.”“Just be careful” warns sergeant Yonsul, taking a drink of water “rich vampires can be tricky, and a Crimsonthorne will be much trickier than most.”“Of course I will” you say “I’m always careful.” The main courses arrive and you’re both too distracted by the food to make any conversation beyond small talk, or discussing the food.Eventually of course it is over, and sergeant Yonsul makes her farewells “Keep me posted on the situation” she says “I might not be able to help as much as I’d like to, but I’ll do what I can.”“See you soon” you say with a grin as she leaves “I know the food will bring you back.”“The food” she says as she walks out the door and winks “and the company.”You head back inside, smiling, what will you do now?Shee's To Do List:1. Open crystal thing in your head (this is now an option)2. Make contacts to sell the guns.3. Teach Dev enough about mechanics to upgrade and quickly repair his mech.4. Activate psychic power5. Check out the reunited leads (chaos mage, elite cop, the brawler, etc.)6. Talk to Tom (reunited)7. Spend time at restaurant8. Talk to Kae9. Talk to Ash>Pick one, or another action---And thread ends here.Next thread in 13 hours.For your actions today you gain 7XPPlease do vote on next actions, this will be OP of next thread.>>37754696No re-vote because this is not final decision. You will have a chance to explore how Quinn will be fed if you offer him protection later.Right now this is general plans.
>>37754759>Ask our Chef about the BrawlerI forgot his name
>>37754759>1. Open crystal thing in your head (this is now an option)
>>37754759>4. Activate psychic powerNot a vote, this no longer has a warning next to it, why is that?
>>37754759> 1. Open Crystal thing in your head
>>37754821>>37754828NOT IN THE HIVE OF ALL PLACES!
>>37754844Normally you'd have a point, but we're inside our restaurant.
>>37754844Isn't our restaurant warded? Anyway, we can just head back.
>>37754759>Ask Gambon after the Brawler Reunited
>>37754824I forgot.And yes, activating a power is not recommended with serec loose in the place.
>>37754868I don't think it is.
>Ask Gambon after the Brawler ReunitedThanks for looking up the name>>37754858We have no idea what sort of mystical protections it may or may not have.We haven't been told about any, so we should assume it doesn't.
>>37754759>1. Open crystal thing in your head (this is now an option)First leave the hive.
>>37754914>>37754868Could we get a confirmation on this please Pally?
>>37754759>>37754923thisNot my first choice, but since others are determined to be retards and want to open the mind thing without any of our reliable allies around I have to.
>All these votes for opening the crystalJust to be clear, this will put it at the top of next thread, when only a few players turn up.Meta: The crystal will give you options akin to a powers vote. Not as powerful per se, but with wider consequences.It's about what sort of God Shee wants to become.She'll have the option to delay the vote once she sees the options, one delay only though.The restaurant is warded against magical detection yes. Not a perfect warding, but will protect against passive detection unless very powerful abilities are used.
>>37755039>unless very powerful abilities are usedLike ascension to godhood?
>>37755069Yes butThe first ability is not that powerful, this is the first step only.
>>37755039Great. It's exactly what I was afraid of...
>>37755039Looks like opening Crystal it is.Thanks for running Pall, see you in a few hours.
I think we should increase our fellowship, its easily our most used stat, perhaps next to willpower, and we can't have too much of it. We have the xp.
>>37755183Let's do it with the crown of hell, but buy off the disadvantage. It's almost equal in XP cost I believe.
>>37755183Actually Willpower is by far our most used stat.And our Fellowship is good enough as it is. We got better things to spend XP on.
>>37755183>its easily our most used statFar behind Willpower and slightly more than Int, actually.Its just more visible because its used for conversations which drag more attention than all the mechanics and perception rolls we make with Int.
So, should we keep 10XP as reserve now for Absorb Spell? Or 15?
>>37755397Save it all we can upgrade at will.
>>37755422You kind of missed the point. Its about a reserve for Spell Absorb alone.
>>37755180It looks like 7-7 to me.
>>37755039>It's about what sort of God Shee wants to become.I wonder how that will work.Do we get templates from unused Yozi?>>37755510Nothing else has 7. Brawler has 5.
>>37755510One Talk to Gambon is deleted, if you have missed that one, and the last one is too late.
>>37755529Cecelyne or SHWILI?
>>37755529>>37755560I guess we're making an incredibly important decision when there are only four of us then.
>>37755529>Do we get templates from unused Yozi?Nope.
>>37755529I'd rather make our own, after all this is pretty much swallow the scorpion.
>>37755654That's not it either.
>>37755606Eh, small number usually means sounder decisions in my experience. And some might get into the early thread for that vote.>>37755654Yeah but Pally said we get something like a power vote that decides what sort of God we become. So I assume there are some templates used.
>>37755677No, he's right. This is Swallow the Scorpion.Pally might do something different with that vote, but this whole process is totally that.
>>37755682True, we'll just have to see i guess.>>37755677We're becoming our own cosmic entity even if this is only the first step. This is pretty much us starting the transition from green sun prince(reunited) to yozi/primordial(a equal to the five)
MetaIts a theme/aspect voteYou can pick a theme that will grant specific bonuses, flavour Gifts, and open up new peripherals.You can pick other themes later, but not an infinite number.All of your themes add up to the God you become.
>>37755713>>37755749I was talking about the 'making your own' part, not the comparison to an inferior game.
>>37755788So its basically like the Domains from PoJ?
>>37755788Well, we'll see tomorrow. Thanks for running Pally.Had a good time.But now I need to sleep, Good Night.
>>37755788I want to know what our options are but I'll be at work at the start of next tread, see you at 6 Pally and don't let the anons use electricity under water this time.
>>37755904It was magical electricity, we were immune to electrical damage, it was fiiiine.
>>37755904> don't let the anons use electricity under water this timeThat totally worked out fine though.And was by far not the worst.
>>37755039Awesome.So what will it be? Goddess of freedom? Of friendship? Of shooting? Of scheming? Of murderhoboing? Of fun? Of waifus? Of Powers? Of rebellion? Laughing goddess? Defender goddess? Machine goddess?So many possibilies...
>>37755939Of Reality or order would be fun, cause the reclamation to halt once she ascended.
>>37755918>>37755930We're not immune this time, stay safe anons we can't come back from the dead this time.Can we?
>>37756016We also don't have Electrokinesis yet.I make no promises about when/if we get it.And we didn't come back from the dead in Paladin of Joy, though some of the waifus did.
>>37756016Just a matter of time until we can.
>>37756016There's one or two Aspects that might allow you to posthumously resurrect yourself at very high levels.
>>37755996I can't really imagine either of those as her domains. Maybe goddess of (im)practical solutions?
>>37756214Or goddess of dreams...... Make the fae run like little bitches at her coming. We can have multiple domains after all.
>>37756251I like this.
>>37756319Considering she dreams of a better world even if it's highly impractical its possible for her.
>>37756251Goddess of Dreams would probably make the *Fae* try to reverse the Reclamation, since if it went through, they'd be trapped in a realm (Oneira, world of dreams) where our power is quite literally infinite.But it's not relevant quite yet, as picking our first Domain is still a ways off. Aspects and Domains are not quite the same.
>>37756251Yeah, that sounds actually kinda appealing. Maybe some of the fae could even worship her at some point?Also how about life, since we've already taken healing.Or perhaps goddess of home, of shelter
>>37756402Honestly those sound good. Goddess of resistance is pretty much a given. Home, dreams and freedom sound good too.
>>37756499Hopes, dreams and home.HDH.
>>37756544See i can't see home that much she moves around a lot. Still we'll work on it, i guess. any thought on resistance?
>>37756574The planet is our home
>>37756588>>37756574>>37756544>>37756499>>37756402>Your world is ruled by inhuman creatures and this has gone on far too long, it’s time to fight back.Oh boy. "Your world" might become more true than ever if we pick "Home"
>>37756402Shelter and dreams sounds like the start of a messed up benign lovecraftian monster and I want to make it happen.
>>37756574She does, but with market preference for places she consider her sanctuary, like the psionic facility. And just now we took the restaurant as the gift from the demon king, which is also topically close.The dreamscape could qualify too in a way.Resistance sounds good as well.
>>37756695She just wants to hug you Anon. With her many tentacles.Sometimes she gets into squabbles with Ichor over that.Yeah, let's not make her another Ichor.
>>37756762Honestly the way her gifts have been earning she probably going to end up halfway between king and ichor.
>>37756762>>37756695I think Home is good. Home works for a lot of things.
We should become a goddess of humanity. Freedom for my people! Strength to those downtrodden by supernatural flunkies. Empress of Mankind and the like (Do it... Do it for Charun)
>>37757151Let's see what pally will let us get, but humanity sounds good. As goes Home and resistance.
>>37757249>>37757151Eeeeh. Home/Dreams are the ones I'm going for right now
>>37757296Well we can see what Pally will give us. After all some of those can be broken more easily than others.
