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/AnAspiringQMWith Sara Yonsul gone, after a rather emotional conversation you head upstairs to the top floor of the Waystation. The empty apartment up there is a convenient place to explore this latest Gift of the Five, afterwards you’ll talk to the chef Gambon about other fighters he knows.Once upstairs and alone, you poke the crystal thing in your head, and it unfolds, its power flowing into you, just like any other Gift you try to shape it, but instead it starts to shape you...The powers of all Five surge and battle within you briefly and you feel unwell, you feel like throwing up and a pain grows in your head, then subsides. Maybe they just needed to reach some sort of equilibri-Ahhh, no, hurts, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH. You double over as pain rips you apart.You writhe on the floor as your flesh feels like it wants to rip away from your bones. Within you the nascent godling you are is finally born. You are no longer just a human, if indeed you ever were, you are now something...more.This is not a Gift of the Five, this is something else emerging within you. You instinctively understand the choice you have. You can choose a single aspect from the four offered, or you can try to fold this thing back up and leave it for another day, stuffing the proverbial genie back in its bottle.
The Aspect you choose now, and the ones you may choose later will define you. No longer will human morality or outlook control how you understand and relate to the world, instead your Aspects will.Aspects will have a rating, like Hope/Cynicism, actions in favour of that Aspect will raise it, actions opposed will lower it. Aspect Morality replaces Hope/Cynicism. Aspect ratings will unlock or change Gifts. Aspect bonuses/penalties are linked to Aspect level.Once your understanding of an Aspect has reached a certain degree, and you have incorporated more of the Fives Gifts into yourself, then you will be able to select another Aspect.Once your first Aspects rating reaches 3, and you have two or more Gifts from each of the Five, you can gain a second Aspect.The Aspects you have to choose from reflect the choices you’ve made, the actions you’ve taken, and how you’ve directed your own growth.The four Aspects you have to choose from are:Aspect of EmotionYou are passion and spirit, wild and untamed.This Aspect grants bonuses to all rolls to inspire emotions in others.You increase any emotion-based bonuses you gain.You suffer a penalty to Will rolls to resist emotion-based effects.You must spend at least 1 additional point of psychic energy when using powers in stressful situations (such as combat), as you throw yourself fully into anything you do.Gifts you have now or gain in the future will include additional emotional effects, terrifying foes, and bolstering allies.
Aspect of FamilyYour world consists of those you care forThis Aspect means that you suffer a bonus to all rolls when using non-harmful powers to help, benefit or aid those close to you. You add the same bonus to all combat rolls when fighting alongside those you care about.The list of those you care for may change over time.The context of your affection may be possessive, or not. It might be romantic, or not.However you suffer penalties to harm those you care about, as well as take more damage if they attack you, even if they are deceived or mind-controlled.Gifts you have now or gain in the future will include the ability to bolster, heal or monitor allies, or may simply become more effective against those who harm your loved ones.Aspect of ImpossibilityYou are all that should not beThis Aspect means that your foes suffer penalties to all d20 rolls as well as defences as they doubt their own abilities around you. Blocking or countering your powers is likewise harder.However you take more damage from anti-magic weapons and effects (rare).Gifts you have now or gain in the future will demoralise foes, as well as break the physical and magical rules.Aspect of ValourYou are courage, bravery and inspiring leadership in battle.This Aspect means you gain bonuses to resist fear, as do your allies. You gain a damage bonus to any magical ability that deals damage, however you find it difficult to turn down a challenge (requires a Will roll).Gifts you have now or gain in the future will include additional weaponised options.And of course you have a fifth option: pack this decision away for another day, different Aspects may be offered in future, but only 4 at one time.15 minutes to discuss, because its the start of the thread.Vote will be called then, at last for 5 minutes.
>>37769801>suffer a bonusOtherwise, I'm mostly tempted by Emotion and Impossibility.Valor isn't really Shees 'thing' in my eyes.
>>37769821The Aspects offered are based off of recent actions, so it is Shee's thing by definition of appearing here.
>>37769801I was about to jump for Impossibility, but> different Aspects may be offered in futureSounds actually viable to me, none of them really convince me currently.Would we know when new Aspects become available?
>>37769821>suffer a bonusThanks for spotting.I proofread before posting, I swear
>>37769836>' in my eyesI just happen to disagree with that assessment.
>>37769843>Would we know when new Aspects become available?Not really, but they are based off recent actions, so if you want a particular Aspects, acting in a way consistent with it will probably put it on the list, especially if anons write-in saying that want a particular Aspect.
>>37769801I'd go with impossibility, given our task, or family, considering our conduct so far.
>>37769801Family was close to what was discussed about home last thread. Impossibility and Emotion are both good. I would go for impossibility out of the 4 but the concept of fighting the Fae by maintaining order in the world still needs some discussion.The challenge part of Valour is dangerous.
>>37769863>so if you want a particular AspectsDo you make them up on the spot, or is there a list?
>>37769876>Do you make them up on the spot, or is there a list?Both.I have a list of Aspects used for Shee and other Reunited but I'm willing to write new ones if needed.
>>37769801If we go for one now, I would take Impossibility, since "breaking the rules" is the rebel thing, and while Emotion and Family fit Shee, I can't really imagine her to be "about" either.
>>37769874>by maintaining order in the worldWell, you could try to steer Shee towards a "Order" mindset, so we could gain such a Aspect later.But I honestly can't see how we woul do that, Shee doesn't seem to particularly care for rules and order. Quite the opposite.
>>37769874Impossibility could let us fight the Reclamation by virtue of making Oneira itself not even know what the fuck.I'm not hugely worried about the challenge aspect, we have a pretty high Willpower and there are ways to lower DCs/penalties.>>37769821Our in-combat behavior fits the definition fairly well.
>>37769921>Our in-combat behavior fits the definition fairly well.True, but thats just one single part of Shees behavior and life, and otherwise she isn't particularly about Valor.And her in-combat behavior is covered by Emotion already.
Ok, time to vote.>Emotion>Family>Impossibility>Valour>NoneThe last option puts the thing back in its box, but can only be used once, the second time the Aspects vote is triggered an option must be taken.5 minute voting time
Impossibility it is, ok.
>>37769963Fuck anon, you just made me sing the whole thing.
>>37769980Yeah, didn't want a risk on the next 4 when we had 1 choice that fit well enough.
>>37769980So do our chosen Aspects affect our Oneira form in any way? Are we going to force Kae to make a SAN check accidentally?
>>37770029That'd be sort of cool actually.I suspect it will affect it in some way. But its just the first step, I doubt we are already weird enough to someone who has dealt with royal fae.
>>37770042I would be very disappointed if we don't get to force SAN checks on fae at some point.
>>37769995Not much point anyway, since we are already fairly 'close' to our sceond Aspect, depending on how fast we gain Aspect rating. But two more shouldn't be too hard.
Your flesh twists and writhes as your mind expands and for one brief moment you glimpse the truth about the world around you, what the fae are doing, what they truly are, and that they don’t even realise there is something controlling them. The Five were wrong, they were wrong! Trapped is not dead! You foolish men, do not use the last line of defence! You were lied to! Imperium must never-Before your still mostly-human mind shatters under the strain the lie called *reality* is pulled back over your thoughts like a comforting blanket. You remember only fragments of what you saw, but you are left with a very strong feeling that the fae have to be stopped somehow, and that this whole world feels subtly wrong somehow. The world is broken you realise, you need to fix it by imposing your own reality upon it. You stand up, you feel kind of weird. You flex the fingers in one hand and they bend backwards, curling into a fist with the back of your hand in the midst of it, not the palm. Then they return to *normal*.It doesn’t really bother you, your fingers are supposed to do that, and it was a good pain anyway.[Aspect of Impossibility 1 gained; Hope and Cynicism removed.]Well that was...different. Once the pain has faded and you’ve had a little time to ponder your new outlook on life you head back downstairs and slip into the kitchen. There the chefs are working at cooking up the first orders of the day.You are unnoticed as you wander into the kitchen and head towards the mountain of a man, known as Gambon.“Gambon” you say, he turns around and looks down at you “Are Ms Hyul” he rumbles in a genial way “how can I help you?”“I was wondering if you had a few minutes” you say “I need to talk to you.”
“Of course” he says, leading you out of the kitchen and to one of the pantries “How can I help?”“It’s about your activities as a fighter” you say “I have a few questions, if you don’t mind.”“I don't mind” says Gambon “Fire away.”What do you ask him? After all, you don’t know a great deal about the fighter you’re looking for.>Know any fighters that follow Jagganatha?>Who are the top fighters right now?>Do you have any fights scheduled soon?>How can I become a street fighter?>Other (what?)
>>37770099>Who are the top fighters right now?>How can someone become a street fighter?
>>37770099>Who are the top fighters right now?>Have you heard of any fighters particularly blessed by Jagganatha?Pretty sure a lot of street fighters follow Jagganatha to an extent
>>37770099>Who are the top fighters right now?>Have you heard of any fighters particularly blessed by Jagganatha?
>>37770099>Who are the top fighters right now?>Know any fighters that follow Jagganatha?Oh jeez, our appearance in fights are going to get disturbing. Having some try and break our bones only having them bend under their hands. I can see our regeneration doing weird things like our blood flowing back into wounds. Time for the creepy head turns.
>>37770099>Who are the top fighters right now?>Have you heard of any fighters particularly blessed by Jagganatha?>How can someone become a street fighter?
>>37770099>>37770117adding>How can I become a street fighter?I lost that one in formatting apparentlyShee would be a pretty good street fighter
“Who are the top fighters right now?” you ask Gambon. Gambon looks a little surprised then answers “Well the real champion is Killer Gorg: He’s a former criminal pit slave with a lot of bionics, he’s basically a walking tank, but slow. He’s also getting old, too many head shots over the years means he sometimes forgets who he is fighting.”“Then there’re three top contenders to knock Gorg out.” Explains Gambon“Ray *Lightray* Maschio is a champion with control over light, can fire blasts of laser energy, and he’s fast. He’s young, a newcomer, but he’s risen to the top, really fast.”“Rockhide is another champion with the power to turn into stone. He’s fought Gorg once already, and almost beat him. He’s been in the game longer, a veteran.”“Donni Sezzio.He’s...I dunno about Donni” admits Gambon “He claims not to have champion powers, but he’s tough, like bullet-proof tough. I think maybe some high-end cybernetics. Most fighters have some involvement in organised crime, but no one knows who is backing Donni, bit of a mystery man, turns up for fights with only a few people in his corner, then leaves straightaway after winning. Only been around a few years, never lost, not that I heard of, anyway.”“Thanks” you say, wondering about these people, who they are, and what secrets they have.“Know any fighters particularly blessed by Jagganatha?” you ask.Gambon looks thoughtful “A lot of fighters follow Jagganatha” he admits “but particularly blessed...I hear there’s a newcomer, Breaker I think he’s called. He’s been making a name for himself, he’s supposed to be very strong despite being small for a fighter. There might be more, but those who gain too many Gifts” he says “Often end up in the Underhive, really low down, I don’t fight there, too many weapons involved.”“How does someone become a fighter?” you ask. Gambon looks you up and down critically before answering.
“Anyone can be a fighter” he says “There’s small fights going on all the time, you just turn up. But if you want to earn big money you need another fighter, or agent to introduce you to the people who run the fights.”“Do you have an agent?” you ask.“Yeah” says Gambon “an old friend, only books me for certain matches though, he knows I’m not looking for a shot at the top, just to make some money, you want me to introduce you? He manages a few fighters.”Do you want him to introduce you?>Y/NAnything other questions>No>Yes (what?)And afterwards?>Talk to other staff (who?)>Do other non-restaurant task (options in next post)
>>37770341>N, Not right now>No>Do other non-restaurant task (options in next post)
>>37770341>not right now>No>Talk to the three long time waiters/prostitutesI'd like to know who their usual clients are and if we can get anything useful from them.
>>37770341So, our candidates for who might be the Jaggantha follower are Donni and Breaker. If either of them is it.Probably have to look into the Underhive at some point.>>37770341>Y>No>Do other non-restaurant task (options in next post)
>>37770341NNdo something else
“Not right now” you say “perhaps later”.Gambon nods “Is there anything else...?” he asks “I mean, I have meals to prepare”“Nothing further for now” you say, Gambon heads back to the kitchen, as you ponder your next move.It’s currently early afternoon.What do you want to do?Shee's To Do List:1. Clear facility of Serec (with whom?)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 Kae8. Talk to Ash>Pick one, or another action
>>37770457>6. Talk to Tom (reunited)>Take Rainya with you
>>37770457>6. Talk to Tom (reunited)Isn't Tom the Chaos mage? Or does "Check out" mean get info about him before actually meeting him?And do we get the choice of who to bring, or do we need to go back to DustTown first if we want to bring someone?
>>37770472you can choose who you bring.Talk to means going and talking to him directly.Checking out means info gathering first.
>>37770457>5. Check out the reunited leads (chaos mage)
>>37770457>6. Talk to Tom (reunited)>Rainya and Dev, if he is available
>>37770457>3. Teach Dev enough about mechanics to upgrade and quickly repair his mech.So Shee's cell don't depend on her for everything
>>377704576. Talk to Tom (reunited)>With Rainya
>>37770457>2. Make contacts to sell the guns.Resistance should be able to help us in this, but first talk to the accountant she probably has connections.
>>37770522It would be more fruitful to talk to the other Chef, since we know he has connections.
>>37770506But even if we teach Dev how to fix the mech he still needs us to aport it out of the facility.
>>37770533And?Not having to spend time to maintain and upgrade it would safe us a lot of time. Apporting it is a matter of seconds.
>>37770544No I get your point, I'm just saying that our team still pretty much relies on us for everything.Yes that's one thing less that we have to do -personally- but still.
Do the Adept/Master bonuses from Psychometabolism count as form alterations for the purpose of Infectious Form?>>37770576>I'm just saying that our team still pretty much relies on us for everythingWell, no. If he does it, its one thing more they don't rely on us for.Obviously they rely on us to do things they are literally incapable of.
I just realised, couldn't we have used Adaptive Form to react to the electricity shock?Or can it not react that fast?
>>37770622Thats actually a good question. How reactive is AF, really? We haven't used it at all in that fight, can we use it at the same time with a psychic power?
>>37770533I had forgotten that. But it's still one less thing that only Shee can do, so the point still stands.One day we will either show them how to get there or habitate the facility as both HQ and residency.
It’s time to talk to the only other Reunited you know where to find, other than Garrax.You head back to Dust Town and locate Rainya, she’s helping the other duster women clean up after the midday meal, but happily drops what she is doing to help you.“What’s up?” she asks, as you lead her away.“We’re going to see another Reunited” you say “I don’t think there will be trouble, but just in case, I want to with me.”“Right” says Rainya with a nod. The two of you head into the Hive, going to the lower levels.Down here it’s dark, there’s graffiti everywhere. Pushers hang around and try and get you to buy drugs. Despite your past habits, you feel no real desire to take anything; your activities with Lirael keep your desire for any sort of chemical narcotic away.You see people wearing different gang signs as you head towards where Garrax told you to find Tom. The two of you attract suspicious looks from many people, the only ones who take no interest in you are those with no interest in anything. Down here there are people just sat on the street or walking along as if in a daze, drug-addicts, dream-eaten, or people who were fed on too much by a vampire and ended up brain damaged from lack of blood.Something about that...about this, doesn’t feel right, there’s layers of thing hidden from you. You wonder if you should be scared, or more curious.You ask around as circumspectly as you can about the *Unseen Sorcerer* and you are directed to an old rundown warehouse. It has broken windows and there’s old industrial equipment around the place. But the doors...the doors look solid, and the locks are rusted, but not broken. Someone here takes their security seriously.“What’s the plan?” asks Rainya.Shee will...>Go knock>Sneak in>Other (what?)Rainya will...>Stick by you>Wait out here>Other (what?)Rainya has up to 4 bodies, she could surround the place *and* go with you if you wanted.
>>37770664>Go knock>Sticks by us, but has one body stand watch outside
>>37770599>Do the Adept/Master bonuses from Psychometabolism count as form alterations for the purpose of Infectious Form?No>>37770622>>37770640Adaptive Form can be used against attacks, but only after suffering from an attack or attack type.Had you been shocked a 2nd time it could have been used as a defence.And if you fight another monster like that you can pre-emptively gain electricity resistance.
>>37770664>Go knock>Stick by youToo bad we haven't invested in Rainyas sneaking yet.Completly forgot about it in the excitment of the Serec fight.>>37770680>And if you fight another monster like that you can pre-emptively gain electricity resistance.Good to know, thanks.

>Will Reinforces the BodyYou add your Willpower modifier to all defences against magical attacks and effects. You add twice your Willpower modifier to your hit points.Just to keep in mind as something we can purchase if it comes to a fight.
“Stick by me” you say “and be ready for anything.”Together the two of you go up and knock on one of the doors, the only one without an obvious padlock or blocked by debris – this must be the *customer entrance*.The door swings open after you’ve finished knocking, huh, it felt closed when your fist hit it, maybe the Unseen Sorcerer likes to impress his clientele.You see a darkened corridor ahead. You focus for a moment and boost your senses, the darkened corridor is suddenly easy to see, there doesn’t appear to be any traps. Next to you, you can hear Rainya’s heart beating like a drum, her breathing sounding loud and ragged, and can smell her, you can smell the scent unique to her.“Hello?” you call out.An echoing voice answers “Enter, and state your request.” There is no one in sight.You and Rainya cautiously head down the corridor and enter a large room, covered in mirrors. There is no uniformity hear, just whatever mirrors the owner could scrounge up. On the ceiling, on the walls, even some free-standing around the place. In the middle of the room is a man in a long robe, a hood pulled forward and obscuring his face. He’s sat on a large but threadbare chair.“Why do you seek the Unseen Sorcerer?” he says in an odd, echoing voice.Thanks to your exceptional senses, you notice a few things.Firstly, all of your reflections in the mirrors are subtly different, in some you’re standing a little differently, in others you seem shorter, or taller, fatter or thinner. And in others...Some reflections show you holding weapons, different ones showing different weapons, until every weapon in your arsenal is on display. Some reflections of Rainya show multiple versions of her, even though she is not using any of her other bodies at this time.Some show Rainya holding a bow made out of multi-coloured energy, weird.
And the man in front of you? He looks the same in all the reflections but...he has no scent. You can’t smell him.But he is too detailed to be a hologram, plus holograms tend to glow, he doesn’t. A magical illusion of some kind?What do you say?>Make up some typical request, you have an illness you want curing or something>I want to speak to the real you, not the illusion>Garrax sent me, he agrees to your bargain, and has found a sorcerer named XAnthian to ast the spell>I know you’re Reunited, I want to talk to you>Other (what?)You can write-in to tell him you’re Reunited if you want, display gifts etc.
>>37770950>I want to speak to the real you, not the illusion>I know you’re Reunited, I want to talk to you>Garrax told me about you
>>37770950>I want to speak to the real you, not the illusion>I know you’re Reunited, I want to talk to you>Garrax sent me, he agrees to your bargain>Direct Rainyas attention to the reflection with the bow
>>37770950>I want to speak to the real you, not the illusion>Garrax sent me, he agrees to your bargain>Direct Rainyas attention to the reflection with the bowWhy is Shee so lewd?
>>37770950>I want to speak to the real you, not the illusion>Garrax sent me, he agrees to your bargain, and has found a sorcerer named Xanthian to cast the spell>I know you’re Reunited
“I want to speak to the real you” you say, looking around the room “not the illusion.”“Until you tell me why” says the illusion “this is all you’re getting.”“I know you’re Reunited” you say “Garrax sent me, he wanted me to tell you that he agrees to your bargain.”The illusion freezes in place, completely still, like a holo on pause.“What happened?” whispers Rainya.“I think I surprised him” you say, you point to the reflections of Rainya holding the bow of light “Look”“What is that?” asks Rainya, he stares at the reflections, even moves her hands to trace the image of the bow in the mirror “Weird” is all she says.But it’s meant to be there for her, you think. Just like your own joints are meant to bend both ways.The illusion twitches and then asks “And what are Garrax’s terms, a date, a time, a place, where do we meet” the voice drops an octave “and who casts the spell? I told him already I won’t trust any High Priest of the King.”How do you respond?>No more talk until I see the real you>Make something up about the date, place etc>I don’t know the time or place, but the mage is Xanthian>Other (what?)
>>37771126>I don’t know the time or place, but the mage is Xanthian>Garrax made me the same offer, and I wanted to meet you, and get a different perspective on his plan
>>37771126>No more talk until I see the real you
>>37771126>Garrax made me the same offer, and I wanted to meet you, and get a different perspective on his plan>No more talk until I see the real you
“No more talk until I see the real you” you say. Once again the illusion freezes, but only for an instant, then it simply fades from sight.A few minutes later a door opens at the other end of the room and a man in a robe, looking very much like the illusion steps through it. In fact he looks identical to the illusion, and the robes don’t quite move right. Huh, so you see through one illusion and he thinks another will fool you-wait...you inhale, you can smell him. The illusion walks towards you, stopping outside of arms reach, folds its arms and says “Well? When is it going to be?”It’s hard, you can’t pinpoint the source of the smell, but there’s another person in here with you. They’re definitely not standing within the illusion, but against the wall? By the door? You can’t tell.Playing for time is the way to go for now.“Garrax made me the same offer” you say “and I wanted to meet you, and get a different perspective on his plan.”“You’re...Reunited?” says the illusion, but the voice breaks up and then the illusion freezes again. You scan the room quickly but can’t see the real Tom Davis anywhere.“And what did you say?” says the illusion after a moment, moving once more “Did you agree, or are you hear to kill me?”You’re Reunited?>Yes>No>Don’t answer thatWhat else do you do?>Talk to him about Garrax’s deal>Say you’re not here to kill him>Attack (options in next post)>Other (what?)Please roll perception 1d20+21

You decide not to answer about being a Reunited, after all, he’s not being honest with you either...You strain your senses, trying to find out where the real sorcerer is.“I’m not here to kill you” you say “I just want to talk about Garrax’s deal, what do you think to it?”“What do I think?” says the illusion in front of you “I dunno really, I think...”There! A blur in front of a mirror at the back of the room, there’s someone there, concealed by a spell maybe, but the smell of another person is coming from that direction.“I think” says the illusion “I think it can work, maybe, but I’m not sure, hence the spell I want Garrax to agree to, and if he has, that’s good, we just need to meet now, so when are we meeting, and where, and who is casting the spell?”“Why does that matter?” you ask.He gives you a scathing look “It’s clear you know nothing about magic, I’ll make it simple: a bad mage can twist the spell to hurt someone, clear enough for you?”Yes actually, now you know what he’s scared of.What now?>Do you know of other Reunited?>Are you sitting the contest out?>I don’t know when or where the spell is to be cast>Other (what?)And whom do you talk to?>The illusion>The person hidden at the back of the room

“Do you know of any other Reunited?” you ask, directing your comment to the blur at the back of the room. Rainya shifts a little at your side.“Wait” says the illusion “what are you doing, I’m over here, and no, I don’t know of any other reunited.”“So what” you say, “you’re sitting it out?” again you address the blur at the back of the room.“You need to leave now” says the illusion, raising its arms, hands emerging from long sleeves.You shrug “Sure” you say “I don’t know when or where the spell is to be cast, all I know is someone called Xanthian is going to be casting it, want me to tell Garrax you’re ready to agree a time and a place?”The illusion freezes for a moment, and the blur shifts a bit, what is he doing?“I do need to send him a message” says the illusion “but your body will have to tell the tale.”You kept the illusion in your line of sight even as you spoke to the blur, so the swarm of what look like glass shards pouring from the illusions outstretched hands doesn’t catch you off guard.You and Rainya dodge in different directions and the hail of shards misses you both.“Die!” yells the illusion, all around you, your reflections start banging on the mirrors as if they’re windows, and they’re trying to get out.You see Rainya gather herself, ready to call her duplicates.ActionsShee>Try and calm him down>Attack (weapon?)>Power (what?)>Other (what?)Rainya>Wait>Duplicate? (how many?)>Attack (weapon?)>Other (what?)You recall that Rainya might not have seen through the illusion. You may need to tell her where to aim.
>>37771685>Cover Rainya by standing between her and the illusion>Try and calm him down>1Duplicate
>>37771685>>Attack (weapon?)Use the grenades to effect the entire area, this should destroy the illusions and any other surprises.3 duplicates and attack with plasma rifles.
>>37771734Dude, the man decided to kill us after we said we would leave him alone.
>>37771738The room you're in is small enough that a plasma grenade will affect the entire room, just a heads up.
>>37771685>Plasma grenade to shatter the mirrors>Cover Rainya>Duplicate 1>Direct her to shoot at the blur
>>37771772Then i change my vote to attacking him with plasma rifles.
>>37771685>>37771777Changing to >Teleport out with Rainya>Apport Plasma grenade in
>>37771685Seconding >>37771734>>37771771It has something to do with the mention of Xanthian, and I want to know why that is.
>>37771771Garrax obviously send us here to either get killed by or kill this dude. And I'm not playing into his hands like a sucker.
>>37771685Can we use our four tentacles to use two two-handed weapons?
Talk it isPlease roll 1d20+7 to calm him down
>>37771826I'm assuming we take a penalty for doing so since two-handed weapons aren't covered by Limbs Unrivaled?
Rolled 14 + 7 (1d20 + 7)>>37771843
Rolled 16 + 7 (1d20 + 7)>>37771822But then we don't get the advantage of Limbs Unrivalled.>>37771843
Rolled 12 + 7 (1d20 + 7)>>37771843NO FEAR!
Rolled 16 + 7 (1d20 + 7)>>37771843
>>37771808Maybe, but this is a good opportunity to waste another of our future enemies. I highly doubt Garrax's plan will work as the five definitely won't accept and he is probably planning something.
>>37771798>It has something to do with the mention of XanthianI had more the impression he was aggravate by us looking at him.Might be a mental defect from favoring Mirror too much.
>>37771871>as the five definitely won't acceptThe five will accept Garrax as the sixth once he has subjugated us all through mystic rules lawyering.Sure, its a good opportunity to waste him, and if we can't calm him down, we will. But if we kill him, it can make interaction with the others a lot harder. Because Garrax will tell them about this incidence as proof of how they must work together to take down people like us.
You step in front of Rainya, and address the blur as Rainya summons a duplicate.“I don’t want to fight you” you say “I think Garrax wants one of us dead, won’t you at least talk it out?”The illusion sneers at you “And why you’re playing for time, you have your pet create more of herself, nice try, but you’re outnumbered.”And with that dozens of duplicates of you and Rainya step out of the mirrors, huh, illusions, big deal, but as they raise their variety of weapons, suddenly you’re not so sure.There’s over 30 version of you here now, and just as many Rainyas.“I don’t think I can handle that many” says Rainya. The version of her with lightbows have drawn the bows and arrows of shining energy are pointed at her.The illusion just stands there smirking, as the blur heads for the door at the back.The images of you and Rainya attack you both.Actions?ActionsShee>Attack (weapon?)>Power (what?)>Other (what?)Rainya>Duplicate? (how many?)>Attack (weapon?)>Other (what?)And of course, please say who you’re targeting with any attacks or powers.
>>37771871The five will also probably accept if, in word or in deed, all the other members of the alliance acknowledge him as their leader. The rules of the engagement said that we don't have to kill our enemies, just subject them to our authority, which, with a bit of finagling, Garrax is in a prime position to do.
>>37771959OK, screw this guy.Drop plasma grenade, teleport both of us outside.
>>37771959>Teleport out with Rainyas>Apport Plasma grenade in
>>37771959>Drop plasma grenade>Teleport right next to the illusion>Tentacle Hentai

>>37771959>Teleport out with Rainyas>Apport live plasma grenade in>>37772004>>37772019>Teleporting out with the *illusion* instead of RainyaI don't even.
>>37771959How many grenades do we have in our arsenal?
>>37772038He's covered with an illusion that prevents us from seeing him. That's what I meant.And of course we're grabbing Rainya, that's so obvious that I didn't feel the need to explicitly state it.
>>37771959>Teleport out with Rainyas>Apport four live plasma grenades inShee is tough, don't know how tough her duplicates are
>>37771981I meant the plan he told us about, the non-lethal competition. I also think he will do something like you said. That is why i said he is planning something and our best bet would be to play by the current rules and kill him and later Garrax.
>>37772097>and our best bet would be to play by the current rulesBut thats wrong. It isn't in our best interest at all.The opposite, going around killing the competition will just make it more likely for the others to team up with Garrax to fight us.Currently there is no Reunited trying to kill the others i this Hive. If we kill him, we will be the common enemy Garrax needs.
Please roll to teleport 1d20+18, and vote on extra psychic energy used, if any.

>>37772127Exactly, which is why I wanted to keep Tom alive for now and get some information out of him.If we do kill them then we should immediately go finish off Garrax as well, but that will be supremely difficult in his club.

no third vote for points use? Ok, taking average of 2
You call forth a plasma grenade from your arsenal and tell the Rainya’s “Grab on, we’re leaving!”Both of Rainya grab hold of you tight. You focus on the area outside of the building, far enough away that any explosion won’t affect you and you feel....something blocking you, your eyes open wide as your duplicates close in and attack.[PE 25/32]You are subject to a storm of bullets, plasma rounds and whirring machine blades. Fortunately their sheer numbers means they can’t all come at you at once, and with so many both shooting and attacking you in close quarters, some of them hit one another. Those hit shatter into glass shards, seems they are rather fragile.But their attacks are quite real. You are shot with slugs, burned by plasma rounds and sliced up by humming blades, the onslaught is agony. You fall to your hands and knees, barely keeping conscious.[HP 33/78]Rainya, where is Rainya. Is that....no, no...Rainya!You can see what’s left of Rainya being hacked to pieces by mirror images of her, blood soaking the ground, her head rolling across the floor until it stops by your arm, open eyes staring at you. Then you see the images of Rainya approaching another Rainya by the wall, is that, please say that’s the real one!Rainyas back is against the wall as the images approach her, she has no weapons and she reaches in your direction with one hand “Shee help me!”Actions?Shee>Attack (weapon?)>Power (what?)>Other (what?)Rainya>Duplicate? (how many? Rainya’s max duplicates are down by 1)>Attack (weapon?)>Other (what?)And of course, please say who you’re targeting with any attacks or powers.The illusion is still standing there, watching the images kill you both. The blur is nowhere in sight.
>>37772364Okay, impenetrable teleportation block.Of course he would have those.>>37772364>Storm of Fire, all six Pistols>Three Duplicates to cover her>Storm of Fire

Wait, if teleportation is blocked, how did we get stuff out of our Dimensional Arsenal, thats a teleportation effect.
>>37772453>>37772488>>37772502>Rainyas back is against the wall as the images approach her, she has no weapons>She has no weaponsAssuming the second mention of Storm of Fire is intended for Rainya and not just an accidental repetition, how is she going to do that with no guns?
>>37772364I wish we were drizzt and could cast Darkness.As it is, is there any light source available we could shoot? There's no light tricks without light.
>>37772518I actually didn't read that. Why the fuck wouldn't she have weapons?And if she doesn't have aweapon, where did her non-bow doubles have them from?
Ok, make an attack roll 1d20+12
Rolled 2 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>37772544Shouldn't we decide number of targets for Storm of Fire and all that?
Rolled 13 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>37772544We have wishcrafting right? She made a wish for us to help her can we use it to boost ourselves?
Rolled 2 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>37772544This situation seems impossible to get out of in one piece.Seems like something right down our alley, yes?
Rolled 18 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>37772544
>>37772544>>37772558If we would have apported to her or something, probably.It didn't say she was wounded, so we can't use it to heal her.
>>37772538>where did her non-bow doubles have them from?Thats actually a good question.Did our doubles hand them over and then walke over to her all in the short time we were disoriented from being blocked?
>>37772553Well I'm assuming you want to target as many as possible, but if you want to aim for fewer, then sure, go ahead.Whilst I'm writing, does anyone want to prioritise targets or limit the number of targets?
>>37772608I think the duplicate that had all the weapons is the one that got killed.
>>37772609>want to prioritise targetsThose attacking Rainya first, then the ones with plasma guns.
>>37772625Why would she hand off her weapons to her duplicate?Apparently there is a "real" one, and the others are duplicates.I mean, now completly putting aside how they managed to get seperated, considering we stood right next to eachother. And we somehow magically had no chance to defend ourselves despite massive close combat fighting ability.
>>37772667>And we somehow magically had no chance to defend ourselves despite massive close combat fighting ability.By the same way they managed to close in so thick on us they overwhelmed three people with no chance to react. While still somehow leaving space for us to get shot at.Plot.
We forgot to use Adaptive Mutation for armor, again.
“Rainya!” you scream as your tentacles explode out of your back, damn you ruined your top.Guns appear in your hands and your tentacles as you start laying down a hail of fire at the images, the mirrors, anything in the room that’s not you or Rainya, even as you run towards her.Around you there are explosions of glass as your shots find their targets. Your doubles numbers are thinning, as Rainyas doubles advance on her, you wonder where did their weapons come fro- what...?Your brain struggles to process the sight of the images of Rainya with claws, gaping jaws, machine blades jutting from palms, all manner of strange mutations. You’ll ponder that later you decide.As you watch, Rainya summons her remaining two duplicates and they both try to defend her, unarmed against shapeshifted monsters.Time seems to slow down as you get closer, more of your doubles have been destroyed by your guns, they’re almost all gone now.As you continue to run towards Rainya one of her duplicates gets swarmed under by freakish twisted version of her.You’re closer now, all your doubles are gone and your shots are thinning out Rainya’s duplicates.Rainya and her final duplicate are backed against the wall, as you watch one of the Rainyas is pulled down by the images and...devoured.Closer now, your relentless hail of plasma bolts is eating away at the group of images around Rainya.Why are you moving so slowly, what is happening, this feels so strange.Rainya is so close now, you could almost reach out and touch her.Your plasma guns are empty now and you drop them, summoning up your machine blades and slamming into the group of freakish Rainya images even as they pin Rainya down.You hack and stab with all of your blades until finally, there’s nothing fighting back. There’s just glass shards, scraps of flesh and blood, and you...and Rainya, lying on the floor, looking up at you her eyes unfocused, her whole body shaking and bloodstained.
Around you flames crackle. Seems much of the room is on fire.What do you do?>Leave>Go through the door at the back, maybe you can find the blur-guy>Other (what?)Heal yourself and Rainya now or afterwards?>Now>Later
>>37772850>Go through the door at the back, maybe you can find the blur-guy>Now
>>37772850>Go through the door at the back, maybe you can find the blur-guy>NowThis question of when to heal sounds suspicious, but I guess.So what, he summoned future possibilities?When Chaosmagic or more mirror gifts get unlocked, I'm curious to get that power.
>>37772850>>Go through the door at the back, maybe you can find the blur-guyNow
>>37772880>This question of when to heal sounds suspicious, but I guess.The room you're in is on fire.Healing now or later is an important point.
>>37772880>This question of when to heal sounds suspiciousI think its matter of invested time, with this being a illusion or something like that.
Please roll 1d20+21 perception
Rolled 6 + 21 (1d20 + 21)>>37773000 inb4 rainya is already dead.

Rolled 10 + 21 (1d20 + 21)>>37773000Why exactly did we not attack those Rainya doubles that attacked her doubles?Wasn't that the plan?
>>37773019Obviously she isn't, but she might have lost the Duplicates, if she could only make two after the first died.
>>37773045I just hope, that if we end up with this guy in our mercy, that we make him pay/off him
>>37773045Well whatever it is, with a roll like>>37773020I'm pretty sure we perceived it.I'm worried that this is one of the mirror Rainya's... and she's gonna try and stab us. which also means real Rainya is dead
>>37773063I just wanted us all to get along.
>>37773063 I still suspect illusion.Because this scene didn't make any sort of coherent sense.They somehow managed to attack all three of us standing close together with melee attacks, while still shooting at us in such large numbers, while driving us away from eachother, somehow.I can't really wrap my head around how this is supposed to play out, so I'm gonna call Illusion for now.
>>37773026>Why exactly did we not attack those Rainya doubles that attacked her doubles?>Wasn't that the plan?You did, you killed them.
>>37773127Yes, but only after killing all our doubles, while the priority was>Those attacking Rainya first> then the ones with plasma gunsSo Rainya attacker had highest priority.For a reason.
You bend down to help Rainya up, she whimpers when you touch her and tries to get away from you.“It’s alright” you tell her “it’s me, Shee”. You crouch beside her.Rainya suddenly hugs you tight, as if afraid you’ll disappear if she lets go, you make use of the opportunity to assess her injuries. No single injury is bad, but there're a lot of them, and she’s lost a lot of blood. As Rainya hugs you and sobs, you focus on closing her wounds.With Rainya healed you focus on your own as Rainya whimpers out “I felt them eat me Shee, oh...oh Go—arrrgglh”.And then she throws up, you manage to twist out of the way as your friend empties her stomach all around you as the smoke gets thicker and the flames start to take hold, spreading around the room.“C’mon” you say, standing and helping Rainya to her feet “We need to go after him.”“Yeah, yeah we do” says Rainya shakily, as you hand her several plasma rifles. Rainya closes her eyes, concentrates...and nothing happens.“No...” she sobs “They’re gone, all gone.”Ah yeah, you guess they are. After a moment Rainya takes a single offered rifle, and several grenades. The two of you heading through the door at the back, just as the smoke is making it difficult to breathe.“Are you up to this?” you whisper to Rainya“Yeah” she says, but doesn’t sound it, before adding in a firmer voice “he needs to die!”You enter into a darkened corridor, you can see fine, but Rainya sticks close, the walls appear to be wooden, with mirrors dotted here or there, or sometimes just tinfoil, anything reflective really. You only need to go past a couple of side passages and around a before you realise you’re in a maze of some sort. However the walls are made of cheap, probably thin, wood. You examine one, nailed to a post, yeah, less than an inch thick these boards.
You try to concentrate on what your senses are telling you. Beside you is Rainya, her breathing heavy, her heartbeat rapid. And out there....is the sound of another person breathing rapidly, as if scared.Beside you Rainya coughs, as the smoke gets thicker, even through the closed door.What do you do?>Yell out to him, try to talk>Try to find this guy in the maze, using noise as a guide>Use your slug-thrower rifle, shoot him through the walls>Leave, the building is on fire>Other (what?)
>>37773248>Try to find this guy in the maze, using noise as a guide>Use your slug-thrower rifle, shoot him through the wallsPin point him via sense then finalize his ass.Also adapt up some armor.
>>37773146Judgement call on my partThe way the rolls where coming out saving Rainya and her doubles first would have resulted in an unconscious and maybe dead Shee. So I switched it.I'm sorry if I made the wrong call.
>>37773248>Leave, the building is on fireWatch to see if he comes out afterwards.
>>37773248>Yell out to him, try to talk it's a little boy
>>37773248>Use your slug-thrower rifle, shoot him through the walls>Adapt some filtering lungs that can handle the smoke
>>37773274>Supporting thisDeath to all who try to kill us!
>>37773248>Leave, the building is on fireJust let him get smoked out
>>37773274here if we can adapt more than once>>37773295Also be ready to apport Rainya out if it gets too bad.
>>37773275Since 2/4 asked for healing, why didn't Shee just do that, instead of switching priorities?We healed while fighting in the last fight too. I understand that it was only half the votes, but since it doesn't cost any resources, it would seem like the better alternative to me

>>37773480They all must die. Today is drama day, anon.
>>37773480Shee has no sympathy, He nearly killed Rainya, he dies. If this was bait it just means we have to hunt more. besides if he was using the kid as bait it means the kid is likely better off being dead than living with this asshole.
>>37773514Yeah, seriously. We gave the guy a chance, and tried to murder us. Screw him, regardless of his motivations.
You put away your blades and take out your slug-thrower rifle, all the while listening for the sound of breathing. You brace yourself against a wall and put the rifle to your shoulder.At the same time you breathe deeply, filling your lungs with smoke. You body obligingly adapts. You feel a brief pain in your chest and then you can breathe much more easily. At your side, Rainya crouches down, trying to get under the smoke.You blot everything out and focus on the sound of breathing...there. It’s lower down, so then his head should be...you adjust your aim a little and squeeze the trigger.In the silence that follows you hear a gurgling, liquid noise, and then another. You and Rainya advance cautiously through the maze until you find a short teenage boy, maybe your own age, lying on the floor, a bloody hole high on his chest, muscle and bone visible in the exit would. He’s alive, but barely.“Please” he begs “please.” His voice a gurgle, he’s drowning in his own blood. At your side Rainya shifts, you realise she is bringing her plasma rifle around to aim at him, her face blank, but her intent clear.What do you do about him?>Talk to him, find out what he knows>Kill him>Leave, let him die here>Other (what?)And Rainya?>Don’t interfere>Talk her down>Take the gun off her>Other (what?)
>>37773574>Kill himHe messed with ours. >Don't interfereShe got maimed because of this punk. It's her right.

>>37773413Voting for multiple actions is a popular choice, but multiple actions at once apply penalties to all rolls.Was healing instead a possibility? YesDid I run through all the possibilities to pick the best one? No.If desired I can open this up for discussion at the end of a thread about what players would like me to do regarding specific tactics in an overall plan.

I wonder does killing another reunited give the killer a highlander boost?
>>37773984THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!
You resist the impulse to interfere, what Rainya does is her call.To the bleeding boy on the ground you say “Tell me what you know about Garrax and other Reunited and maybe I’ll heal y-”You jump back with a small yelp as a beam of plasma energy slices through his chest and into the floor. You turn to see Rainya grimly wave her plasma rifle back and forth until the body is just charred remains.“Rainya...” you start, reaching out to her and putting your hand on her shoulder, she starts coughing.“Let’s get out of here” you say, the two of you leave the burning building before the fire blocks any chance of escape.You need to lead Rainya out, she doesn’t speak, just follows where you push her, her face blank. When you’re both a few streets away from the burning building you try to figure out a way to help her. Ah dammit, you’re no head-doctor, whatever is wrong with her you need to....wait, you feel...everything is blurry, what-You hear a thump as you fall to the floor.---All around you is darkness, and Five familiar beings.“Congratulations” says Jagganatha “You are the first to slay a Champion.”“What?” you say, not really understanding.The silver form of the Infinite Mirror storms towards you, even as the King and the Ichor block its path.“I won’t forget this” says a voice like shattering glass “You’ll never get another thing from be and my next champion will rip your head-”“Oh” says the dark form of Baalzamon, curling around you, but looking at the Mirror “Breaking the rules of the game are you? Please say yes, just say yes, and I’ll pay the forfeit instead, go on brother, say yes.”The Infinite Mirror pauses, and then says in a controlled, but clearly angry voice “As you have killed my chosen champion, I am bound by the terms of the contest to offer you a Gift, will you accept?”
You feel the power of the Infinite Mirror surge into you, far stronger than any you’ve felt before, perhaps too strong for you to handle.Seems he’s keeping to the word of some unknown agreement, but is trying to push so much power into you that you won’t be able to handle it.Will DC 25Will you?>Y/NAnd other?>Tom was your champion? Is that why he was so powerful?>Other Question (what?)Killing another champion is clearly not something you should have been able to do.[Aspect of Impossibility +1]

>>37774050>Why was he trying so hard to kill me? I didn't want to do that.
There's no point in keeping him alive. He's paranoid, untrustworthy and since he's reunited he is a natural enemy.Oh and he tried to kill us. Fuck him.
>>37774050>>37774072This is me, also>YThis is why we take all of the willpower buffs.

>>37774107We have willpower +12 don't we? That's a 13 or higher. And if we have XP we can blow it on another mirror willpower upgrade (though that might be impossible now that mirror hates us.)
>>37774121>Refusing won't do us any favor, guys.Yes it would. It would mean not taking a enormous risk of allowing Mirror to fuck us over for killing his champion. A roll of 17 is not very likely.>>37774126Not available.>>37774139Wut? We have +8
>>37774135We might actually be able to buy one unwritten rank for a +2 to Willpower, since we got to 5 favor last thread.>>37774139We have a Willmod of +8, anon.
>>37774107dude, we have a bonus of +12. we just need a 8.
>>37774158Assuming that one still costs 5XP.>>37774139Please don't tell me all of you guys voting Y are this stupid?I mean, I get wnating to risk this, but I hope its not because you literally don't know our stats.
>>37774050>Tom was your champion? Is that why he was so powerful?>Does that mean each one of you have champions as well? And i will have to kill all of them?>YNo pain, no gain.
>>37774158We have a +12. +4 normal, +8 infinite mirror gift.
>>37774176>(p)Willpower – 18 (+4), Willpower of the Infinite Mirror 26 (+8)>+8You are literally retarded.
>>37774176How'd we get the extra +4 anon we had a mod of +8 on char sheet plus roll is 25 Dc
>>37774176????How could you even get the idea we have a willmod of +12?We have +8. You can just look at Shees charsheet.>>37774190Infinite Mirror Increased our Will STAT by 8, which is a mod increase of +4!>newfags don't even know how stats work anymoreWhat kind of world is this?
>>37774176Wait my math was a bit of there. Sorry, a bit drunk.
>>37774190That's +8 to *Willpower*, a total *Willmod* of +8.The roll will be 1d20+8.
>>37774156>>37774158Willmod +8Base will +4Jesus, it's like you guys don't know how stat buffs work.
>>37774221You evidently don't.The 4 is not added to the 8, the 8 is displaying the total Willpower modifier once bonuses are applied.Every 2 point over 10 gives us a +1 to the stat's modifier.26 - 10 = 16/2 = 8, a Willmod of +8.
>>37774221...It increases the Willpower STAT by 8 you retard.Whichz means a increase of mod by +4.>(p)Willpower – 18 (+4), Willpower of the Infinite Mirror 26 (+8)>+8!Cant you fucking read?
Since apparently we are taking this stupidly high risk Pally, can we purchase Willpower of Infinite Mirror 5 now to slightly increase our chance?
OK, going for high risk, high reward ok. Please roll 1d20+8Also, do you want to spend 5XP for another rank of Willpower of the Infinite Mirror?>Y/NThe irony of that is not going to be lost on the Five.
Rolled 14 + 8 (1d20 + 8)>>37774291>Y
Rolled 1 + 8 (1d20 + 8)>>37774291>YI told Mirror I won't play favorites, your champion attacked me and killed him. It was personal between him and me, not you an I.
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>37774291>YI think the king and Ballzy man would appreciate it. Mirror already hates us so whatever, and the other two probably wouldn't care.
Rolled 10 + 8 (1d20 + 8)>>37774291>YTime for our first negative mutation!
>>37774320Are we going to explode now?
>>37774327phew, good think I messed up my modifiers.>>37774332Not that it matters lol
>>37774335Nope need 2 ones to critfail.
>>37774332It might not be negative. Mirror doesn't actually get to shape the power if we fail, it shapes itself, IIRC.
>>37774335maybe, pally picks a power/mutation at random
>>37774318>>37774320>>37774332Thank you retards. We are fucked.And that all thanks to people not being able to read stats. Fucking fantastic.
>>37774349You are most welcome, friend or friends.
>>37774349I knew the risks and our stats. So we got a bad one, shit happens. Chill your tits anon.
>>37774361There was no point to taking this risk at all.
>>37774349Oh go fellate yourself anon. I knew what our willmod was. I considered it worth the risk anyway for a big pay out.Besides, this was bound to happen sooner or later. We couldn't keep beating every shape check.>>37774372>There was no point to taking this risk at allThe reward? especially because Mirror said he's never going to give us power again?
>>37774372that is incorrect.
>>37774372That's your opinion anon. Mine differs.
This is why importantr shit should be done early in the thread, because late thread only means idiots come in and fuck it up.There was no benefit at all to taking this supidly high risk.>>37774390>We couldn't keep beating every shape check.We could keep our risks under control by making checks we have a good chance of meeting.
>>37774403>RiskAnon, if you think Pally hands out actually bad consquences for stupid decisions, you must be really new here.Bad things happen in his quests when he decides its drama time, not through rolls.
This will take a few minutes, please be patient.
>>37774457In other words, instead of treating the threats like they're threats, you're relying on the QM going soft on you.I hope this failure fucks us up really, really badly.
>>37774457this is also incorrect.
>>37774403>There's no benefit to taking this stupidly high riskWell clearly there's no benefit now, because we already lost. Thanks for that captain hind sightHowever there was a benefit for taking the risk, due to the dice check this was clearly going to be a very high level power. And ever since Pally reworked mirror's shit, mirror has provided some very high quality powers.Hence, there was a chance to get something that would give us a definitive edge and despite the high chance of failure I thought it was a risk worth taking.On top of that, just because we fail the dice check does not automatically mean we get fucked over. It just means we don't get to pick our power. Now there's a pool of abilities, along with detriments, that we will randomly get a power from.Plus, we haven't seen the failed shaping scene yet, I'm looking forward to that.In the end, you're side lost either way. So stop power gaming, kick your heels up, and enjoy the fire works.
>>37774486I'm not at all. I just know how it is.I treat the threats as threats, thats why I warned people in my vote that we don't have much of a chance to meet this check.But I realise this quest is infested with idiots that vote without thinking for a second about consequences. And I'm grateful Pally doesn't fuck us with a rake for some peoples idiocy.>>37774514>Thanks for that captain hind sightPeople pointed out the high chance of failure before the roll.
>>37774514>So stop power gamingWut?What sort of delusional are you were taking a stupoidly high risk just for some potential high power advantage is less gamey then not wanting to risk allowing the Mirror to fuck us over.Which we got told IN CHARACTER was his plan.
>>37774514We might not even get a power. Failed shaping rolls can result in wholly negative effects with no benefit to us.
>>37774540>I just know how it is.please, tell us how it is. I could use a good laugh.
>>37774566>anything in this quest>stupidly high riskno
>>37774540>People pointed out the high chance of failure before the rollAnd if you read the rest of my post you would have seen that I acknowledged that risk but decided to go for it anyway.>>37774566>Which we got told in character was his planWut? No we didn't. In character we were told he had to offer us a power for defeating his champion.Also in character we just saw Rainya almost die despite how powerful we are, and you expect us to turn down a chance at a big power. Just because it might be bad for us? Since when has Shee ever cared about herself first? We always take the plunge even if it might turn out horrible. We let a fay read our fucking mind.>>37774605Talked about that too already.
>>37769940Damn. Kind of upset only five anons were up for this considering how much of an impact it is on the character.
>>37774632It happened at 5 am for me. I ain't getting up at 5 am for this.
>>37774632Yeah I missed it too, I like the impossibility aspect though.
>>37774628>Wut? No we didn't.>but is trying to push so much power into you that you won’t be able to handle itOnce again I ask all people participating to learn to read.>And if you read the rest of my post you would have seen that You accused of hindsight, I pointed it it wasn't hindsight.
>>37774619A 4/5 chance of failure for each roll in Bo3 with this quest's dice would be defined as stupidly high.>>37774628>Seems he’s keeping to the word of some unknown agreement, but is trying to push so much power into you that you won’t be able to handle it.
>>37774659>trying to push a lot of powerWhich is, again, a reason why Shee would take it in character despite the risks.But yes, he is trying to get back at us obviously.
>>37774657Yeah 7 here and I worked night shift.>>37774658It's not the worst thing that could of happened as far as I can see.. but I'm always a sucker for family type powers.
>>37774628>Just because it might be bad for us?No, because it was explicitly a trap that was ment to lure us in with high reward promises for taking a massive risk.Something Shee has ALWAYS declined. Such wih the two party invitations, which wre basically this.And she has never not cared about herself first. There is a specific limited amount of people she cares about, but this choice did not offer direct benefit to either of them.
>>37774677The chance of failure was very high and the potential benefits are about equal to the potential negatives.This was not an intelligent risk to take from a statistical standpoint.
>>37774677>Which is, again, a reason why Shee would take it in character despite the risks.No she wouldn't. Shee was never before a high-risk, high-reward person. EverShe declined the option of spying on both fae and vampires and declined the chance to save the lives of rebelion members because she was not willing to take high risk for high reward.
>>37774318Failed the DC by one fucking point, unbelievable.
>>37774736It's not about the high-risk, high-reward, it's about the power. Shee's always gone for maximum personal power, and the potential of a huge lump of power would be enough to make her take the risk.
>>37774756Two points. Even taking the purchase of WIP 5 into account.
>>377747562 points but yeah. needed a 16 to clear 25 with a +9
>>37774662Where are you getting 4/5?
>>37774765>Shee's always gone for maximum personal powerNo she hasn'. Thats even bigger bullshit.If she would, she would have gone into the activation tank more often.>>3777479416/20
>>37774756Two, actually.14 + 8 + 1 from the most recent purchase.So two fucking points.>>37774765Except for when we declined personal power (Ichor's second gift) or avoided taking the actions for maximum favor gain because we didn't like them, you mean.>>37774794Oh, sorry, 3/4.Still pretty nasty odds.
>>3777479416/20=4/5.>>37774811>Oh, sorry, 3/4.No 4/5 is correct.16/4=4 20/4=5.
>>37774803Yea she has, she risked pissing off all 5 gods and having them all reject her because she wanted powers from all 5.
>>37774811And then there are the times we go for max personal power, like when we spent 12 hours in the activation tank.
>>37774825pass on a 16 meaning 16,17,18,19,20 pass
>>37774803>>37774811>>37774825I think you're all forgetting that it isn't 1 roll, it's 3 rolls.
>>37774836No she has never done that?The Five themselves told her she should puruse power from all of them. Thats the entire pint of this exercise.>>37774843>And then there are the times we go for max personal power, like when we spent 12 hours in the activation tank.Wut? That didn't increase our power compared to spending 3.
>>37774852No, he specifically said 4/5 (actually its 3/4) on each roll.He took that into account. The odds were still unfavorable.
>>37774861>The Five themselves told her she should puruse power from all of them.Lol no, she got told to pick one and she refused and said all of them. Reread the archives.
>>37774878No? 3/4 is the chance for one roll. We have 3 rolls. The chance for 3 rolls is not the same as the chance for one roll.
>>37774884> The winner will combine traits from all Five: It has been proven again and again that following a single patron only, or up to four, does not work.OH WOW LOOK AT THAT:The King LITERALLY told us we need five patrons.And they explicitly offered us the favor of all Five by themselves.Learn to fucking read, retard.
The mutating power of the Infinite Mirror explodes within you as you battle with all your might to control in, inadvertently strengthening one of the other powers of the Infinite Mirror as you do so...But the power within you is too strong, and it runs wild, you feel your body turn to glass, then you grow ten heads, then you can see a dozen version of you then, nothing.You get up, shaking your single head on your non-glass body. You look yourself over but you see no changes, nothing visible anyway. All around you is darkness...and only four of the Five.“What happened?” you ask, the Ichor offers you a tentacle and pulls you to your feet.“Some people” says Baalzamon “Have no sense of subtlety, or taste.”“The Mirror tried to destroy you” explains the King of Hell “That’s...not allowed, so he threw a tantrum instead.”“A good one though” says Jagganatha “The challenges you will soon face will make you stronger.”Oh joy...“What exactly did he do?” you askThe Ichor answers “he put thousands of images of you all over the galaxy” she said, particularly in places where Syrnian priests would find them: the bottom of the cup of sacred wine, inkblots on holy tests, breaks in stained glass windows, things of that nature.”“That’s all?” you ask, somewhat relieved, honestly you were expecting something worse.“The Syrnians will investigate” says the King “And may send a mission to your world, if they do, they will likely seek to kill you or take you captive.”“Given the lack of tolerance Syrnians have” comments Baalzamon “for anything mystical, this could in interesting.”“In war” says Jagganatha “Your true strength will be revealed.”Lovely...“So Tom was the Mirrors champion?” you say “That explains his power at least.”Baalzamon crowds in close “Oh not just that” he whispers “I think the Infinite Mirror was cheating, did you wonder how you got so easily separated from your ally in the fight...hmmm?”
“Don’t start that again” says the King of Hell “The rules are clear, no new favours or gifts during a battle with other Reunited.”“I know cheating when I see it” says Baalzamon, edging away from you “and given that the Infinite Mirror is now refusing to grant her gifts...”“Yes that is troubling” says the King, the four all exchange looks as he adds “and he really shouldn’t be able to, given the rules, but given how subjective some of the circumstances can be...?”“Are you suggesting what I think you’re suggesting?” says Jagganatha“I’m saying” says the King “That if the Infinite Mirror refuses to give a gift under the right conditions, one of us should instead.”“Agreed” says the Ichor rather quickly “Shee, should you ever be refused by the Mirror, you will instead receive one of my-”“NO!” bellows Jagganatha “No second, proxy champions or half-way measures, we all contribute, or none do.”“I say let the mortal decide” says Baalzamon, winking at you.“Ah first” you say, as they all four stare at you “I just wanted to be clear on a few things, I mean, I get now why nothing I did in that fight seemed to please any of you, but why was Tom so scared, I mean, why did he try so hard to kill me?”“An excellent question” Baalzamon praises you, and three of the four look to the King of Hell.The King glares at them and says to you “Garrax is not being entirely honest. I refuse” as the others protest he says “yes, I refuse, be quiet, I refuse to tell you his full plot, but Xanthian is a fairly well-respected black market mage, who is known for sticking to deals. However, Garrax has...something...on him and could push him to break a deal. Tom Davis knew this, but Garrax didn’t know that he knew. It was a ploy that Tom would agree to a bargain with Garrax, but it would be a one-sided bargain.”
“Tom was forewarned and so thought you were somehow in Garrax’s employ, and the name of the mage was a signal to him that it was a false bargain. Also, his illusions were impressively strong against magical detection. When you let him know that you knew where he was, he feared that your power was far greater than his, and so he threw everything he had at you in an effort to kill you, then he ran and hid, the rest you know.”“The Mirrors behaviour has been quite poor” says Baalzamon, curling around you “let me make it up to you, I offer you a gift, free of charge, one that you can shape easily.”“Or any of us could” says the Ichor, with a snort “since our brother is determined to sulk.”“Very well” says the King of Hell to you “Who would you want a Gift from, in lieu of the Mirror, today, and hereafter?”You have the choice of a free gift from any of the remaining four, as well as the opportunity to nominate one, or all of them to grant gifts in future if the Mirror refuses.10 minutes to discuss, then a five minute vote with two options: one for gift now, one for gifts in future.
>>37774948Don't quote from after the decision when pally twisted his plans to adapt to what we choose. Before we picked all 5 we didn't have any clues that we should have.
>>37774998I suggest we take a gift from Baalzamon, for the simple fact that he is the worst of the Five and pleasing him is way harder than the others.
I'm think Baalzamon for the current gift because we have the lowest favor with him and he's harder to get than some.Of course all of them should gift us if Mirror continues to be a jerk.Also We now know Tom is definitely going to backstab us so Woo!
>>37775009We never got a choice from the Five before then. Only the Fortune Teller asked us if we wanted a Patron, which had asbolutely nothing to do with the reunited deal, because we didn't know back then.It was Shee being cautious and not jumping for more power that led to her discovering the better deal.Which the other Reunited largely apaprently haven't.Pally didn't change his plan at all, this is exactly the sort of thing he likes doing.
Rolled 1 (1d4)>>377749981=king2=sea mom3=Baal4=Jag
>>37775009>Don't quote the part that proves me wrong! That isn't fair!
>>37774998Baalzamon, definitly.Maayyybbbee Jaggantha.>>37775009>itt things that never happenedWe never actively choose to follow all Five. We always choose to not follow specific one, and the Five told us from the start that we need all of them as patrons.
>>37775044I think Baalzamon for this gift right now, especially because he's so hard to please.For the future, hell if I know, can we leave it open option or put it on a rotation Pally? Let's ask the five that.They all seem rather eager to influence us, so what if we suggested that every time mirror refuses us a power, one of them gives us one in order, say Ballzy (counting this one), Jaganatha, Sea Mom, Hell Dad, Repeat.
>>37775058>being cautious>demanding that all gods give you a bunch of powers for free instead of just onelolno>>37775072Parts after we made the decision don't prove me wrong though. Learn to read before you make yourself look like an idiot.>>37775084>the Five told us from the start that we need all of them as patronsComplete lie.
>>37775093I wouldn't say he's hard to please. The mirror was.. we're just not a liar.
>>37775093Agreed or just have them all throw a little in for the gift if mirror continues to refuse and we pick the best offering.
>>37775097>demanding that all gods give you a bunch of powers for free instead of just oneExcept we never did that. Please provide qoute of Shee doing something like that to the Fives displeasure.The only time Shee asked something of all Five, was when she asked all of them for their Favor, which was after they told us we need all five Patrons.
>>37775093>can we leave it open option or put it on a rotation Pally?Open option is the all option.If you pick *all* in the next vote then each will offer when you please the infinite mirror and you will get to pick, in-character.
>>37775097>the Five told us from the start that we need all of them as patrons>Complete lie.Not him. They didn't word it like that they said that no one had succeeded without all of their favor.
>>37775097>Parts after we made the decision don't prove me wrong though.We didn't make any decision at that point, we had postponed the patron decision when they told us that we need all five of them.>demanding that all gods give you a bunch of powers for free instead of just oneThey're the ones that offered, we demanded nothing and postponed the decision because we wanted to know more about them before risking mental alteration.
>>37775116>Shee doing something like that to the Fives displeasure.There isn't one, because the decision worked out. We didn't know it would work out before we made it though, which is my point. It was a high risk high reward decision to boost Shee's personal power.
>>37775104Hard to please for us then. Especially cause we never seem to take the easy lies, and the big ones were just the type that would come back to bite us in the next post or something ridiculous like that.>>37775124And, since we just learned that defeating other champions gives us powers from the patron of the loser, one would gain 'favor' of all of the five by beating the champions of the others.At least that's how I'm interpreting it.
>>37775118Would it be possibleif Mirror continues to refuse, that they all just offer a gift and then we just pick the best offering or the most useful one at the time?

>>37775149No it fucking wasn't. You keep talking about some "decision" Shee made, that never happened.At no point ever did Shee demand anything from the Five. Ever.They offered and we accepted.We didn't even have a Patron choice before meeting the Five. Unless you count the Fortune Teller question, where we didn't take all Five. We refused to take ANY Patron.Stop making up shit.>>37775169>Baalzamon>All
>>37775149>There isn't one, because the decision worked out.No, I wanted a quote for Shee demanding gifts from all Five.
>>37775169BaalzamonAll>>37775178We were supposed to pick a patron from them, a single one. We refused, and said they should all support us. How is that not demanding?
>>37775209>We refused, and said they should all support us.Please quote that. You can't, because it never happened.
Baalzamon+All it iswriting
>>37775169>Ichor>IchorI may be biased.
I wonder Is mirror really that petty or did us taking a domain affect his attitude to us? Maybe he was hostile because we killed his champion and had an aspect opposed to his impossibility. After all choosing the impossible and making it stick is anathema to adapting to change.
>>37775276>or did us taking a domain affect his attitude to usIf anything our Domain should please him, since doing the Impossible just makes us even better at changing and adapting.
>>37775223>Five: yo pick one of us>Shee: no fuck that gimme all ur powers fgtsThere you go, word for word quote.
>>37775295not necessarily adaptation =./= impossibility. For example surviving in the artic without, heavy fur and blubber is impossible for a human, a mirror champion would adapt, something with imposssibilty would just make it so that it would survive by forcing the world to change.Impossbility makes the world change for it's sake adaptation changes itself for the world's sake.
>>37775339But in the end those are just two variations of a mirrorImpossibility makes the world mirror youAdaptability makes you mirror the worldIf anything, Mirror should be please, or maybe jealous of our Domain
>>37775339I get what you mean. But I don't think he is that invested in what we change.As long as something gets changed.At least, I can't see it as being anathema to him to such an extent he would be hostile to us for it. Change should be better than no change to him.
“I accept a gift from the Heart of Darkness for now” you say respectfully “and in future, I will consider gifts from whichever of you sees fit to offer me one, should the Infinite Mirror refuse.”“Done!” thunders Jagganatha as Baalzamon reaches out to touch you with a scaly claw.Baalzamon offers you a choice of 4 Gifts, no roll requiredDexterity of BaalzamonYou gain 2 ranks in this powerEach rank offers +2 to Agility, higher ranks reduce the penalties for taking multiple actions at once, as well as speed increase.Tail You gain both ranks in this powerWith Tail 1 you grow a long black tail, perhaps four feet long, slender and agile. Initially it aids you to balance, climb and swim, adding +5 to all relevant checks.With Tail 2 it becomes prehensile, able to act as a third hand, fully capable in all respects, though it effectively has only a single digit. Hidden HeartAnyone reading your mind has to beat the relevant DC by 20 points in order to read the truth, otherwise they only learn what you want them to know.Later levels raise the amount they need to beat the DC by.Form of BaalzamonYou are turning into a gigantic, shadowy black dragon.Initially you gain scales that grant damage reduction and weak claws.Later levels progress the transformation.10 minutes to discuss, then vote.Next post will end audience with the Four, so now is a chance for write-in questions Shee wants to ask.
>>37775424Tail. Hands down.Hidden heart is just an inferior static version of that other gift he can offer.Form is too much change, even if sexy change.
>>37775424>otherwise they only learn what you want them to knowHow exactly does this work? Do we get asked?Is it noticeable to them we keep things back?
>>37775384>>37775410Maybe, I was just wondering if it wasn't our aspect that really tweaked him off not the whole losing a champion thing. That we were either rejecting him, or trying to poach his turf.>>37775424Hidden heart or Dex seem like the best powers. Even if someone blows past our defense they'll still see what we want them too. for the hidden heart and dex if very useful when we go full weapon spam.
>>37775442>too much changeimpossible, I want form. Huge bonuses.
>>37775424>Tail"Are you gonna be mad when I kill your champion king?
>>37775424My inner weabo says tail. Cause I want tailThat said, Hidden heart might be useful, but it's an addendum of the power we have from the King of Hell.Dexterity is a support power, not feeling it right now.Form isn't bad, it would serve as a finisher against more powerful opponents, especially if we level it up. Though it's not very useful right now it could prove to be incredibly potent in the right circumstances.It's down to tail or form for me, though I'm leaning towards tail.
>>37775472This pleases Jagganatha.
>>37775442Anon, Hidden Heart *is* 'that other gift'
>>37775424>Hidden HeartFuck, too good, way too good. Perfect to go infiltrating parties and other important events.Form of Baalzamon is also pretty neat.
>>37775424Dexterity, or Tail. Dex isnt really a much used stat for us, so I would say, rather not.Tail augments our weapon spam with an additional limb. Heart is alright.Form is neat, but since it is permanent and some pretty massive change, I would shy away from it, since peope don't trust someone who is too obviously with Baalzi.
>>37775424Could my opening the crystal have affected Mirror's view of me? Will any of the rest of you get upset if I kill one of your champions? I don't plan on it, but considering the stakes of this "game" I will when they try to do it to me.
>>37775424You know if we turn into a dragon we will likely get a tail later on too. Just saying to all the tail supporters.
>>37775517Dex is needed for accuracy when we go storm of fire, which is going to handy clear out mobs and Serec.
>>37775457If you are unaware of the mind-reading attempt, they simply gain nothing useful.If you are aware, or at least suspect it, players can choose what they learn.If the mind-reader fails to beat the higher DC they believe they have succesfully read the truth.This is about presenting a false version for them to read, not about blotting them out.
>>37775522Yeah but we also get a bunch of other stuff.And either its a transformation we can turn on and off, and we don't have the tail constantly. Or its a permanent change, and we get a bunch of stuff we don't want.
>>37775534So, with the King's protection, we would be aware of any attempts, right? This seems a pretty good combination.
>>37775424Oh, this reminds me, are we gonna get the other thing from the shard now or has that been removed because it's 2OP?>>37775517Dexterity's main benefit is decreasing the penalty for multiple actions, to me.Heart is pretty amazing for any kind of infiltration or having to keep important secrets, such as Lirael's existence.>>37775532The agility increase will increase the number of possible attacks and therefore the malus from SoF, though.
>>37775424>Can you only pick one Champion during this contest? Considering how many Reunited there apparently are, I would have thought you could try to recruit someone else for the job.>Is there a way to know how is someones Champion, so I can avoid offending you?
>>37775563>>37775590I'm leaning towards hidden heart because with it and King's protection stacked on we can avoid all but the best mindprobes and mislead even those with luck.,
5 minute vote>Dexterity>Tail>Hidden Heart>Form>>37775563Yes>>37775590Other thing from shard has been removed.
>>37775627>TailMea culpa. But dat Tail!
>YesThat does it>>37775627>Hidden Heart
>>37775627>Hidden HeartI would have thought since the King only warns us against influencing, and not what kind, we still wouldn't know if its mind-reading and couldn't use the active effect.Then Hidden Heart is definitly good.Although I'm not sure if its that useful. We are mainly at risk from reading from vampires, who can have absurd mods on those rolls.
>>37775627>FormI want... the scales... So much
>>37775627>Formbest option for all the big shit that's gonna go down soon.
>>37775627>>37775651changing to Heart
>>37775627>Hidden Heart>>37775744Not really. best would be Jagganatha or King's forms.
hang on, checking timestamps, trying to figure out 4chanx
>>37775770>king's form>picking the form of a loser
>>37775782It's not the King's fault that Shee's father was a weakling.
>>37775770>best would be Jagganatha or King's formsDepends really. Jagganatha isn't quite our style. King fits us more, but we can't really tell either way without seeing the higher level boni. KIngs wings would be cool though.
ok, going with Heart, despite tied vote one was flipped only a few seconds late.
>>37775796Honestly when the time comes, combine ichor and King's form. Very much us, very freaky, fairly strong and it's a impossibility to fully comprehend.
>>37775772I'm still unclear on this.Is "Transformation" a transformation we activate to get those changes, or is it called transformation because we permanently get those changes, like our tentacles?
>>37775789It's not Shee's father's fault the Kings is too weak to give him good gifts.
>>37775826Permanent unless specifed otherwise
>>37775866>Form are at will changes like dad's>Permanent unless specifed otherwiseApparently not.
>>37775880I assume it's concealable by our disguise powers. But I still want it either way.So much sadness right now
>>37775906One day, anon. One day.
>>37775906>I assume it's concealable by our disguise powers.Obviously it is. But it still makes a difference if its part of our real form or not.I do like his Transformation too though.
>>37775906Provided Baalzamon's champion doesn't try to snipe us off immediately I think we can get a few more gifts out of him. I'd really like more disguise powers before we get something so very noticeable.
>>37775937>Provided Baalzamon's champion doesn't try to snipe us off immediately I think we can get a few more gifts out of him.I actually think Baalzamon will be the second least offended by us killing his champion.He would probably enjoy giving us a gift for it, considering its sort of a betrayal.
>>37775937I think Jagganatha, Baalzamon and the King will keep gifting Shee even if she kills their champions. Ichor, on the other hand...we might want to leave hers for last.
>>37775937Alright, but I don't want to hear whining the next time we get caught in a hail of plasma and bullets when we could have picked up a form with damage reduction, increased health, additional weapons and flight here.
>>37775965If we just imouto Ichor's champion then problem solved, all we have to do is make her subordinant to us, which will be accomplished by showing how much more caring we are than she is.I say this expecting Ichor's champion to Kuudere.
>>37775963Yeah, true. Also we should let Lirael feed on us more and maybe donate to soup kitchens or give money/food to beggars more. He'd consider those betrayals too and might even give us some favors.
>>37775963>>37775965Good points, here's hoping. And yeah ichor might be pissed about it, but on the other hand we're pretty tied between her and king so she might not be.>>37775966Blink and apportation is lovely for that stuff. Plus we'll get better armor once we make contacts with the back market and sell some stuff off.
>>37775965>Ichor, on the other hand...we might want to leave hers for last.I'm worried about that one too.Which is why we will become her Champion.>>37775966Honestly we can get all these things with Adaptive Mutation, we only need to be allowed to activate it. Apparently it takes some time to do so, otherwise Shee would have gotten armor when the Duplicates moved in.
>>37776007>showing how much more caring we are than she is.so by lying? maybe we should take more gifts from baalz
>>37776014>Blink and apportation is lovely for that stuff.Like it was in this fight?>>37776007I believe Ichor already has a champion, they all seem to have one already. I bet she's a MILF, too.
>>37776008I'm not sure what you are talking about.Helping the murderer of someone who fought for him, is definitly a form of betrayal.
>>37776014>>37776021I'm willing to bet that neither of those would be as good as the form.
>>37776035>I believe Ichor already has a championInb4 it's sergeant Yonsul
>>37776014>Blink and apportation is lovely for that stuff.Yes, its all sorts of cool, if we get allowed to activate these things. Which isn't always the case as we saw today, so having more passive defence is definitly a plus.
>>37776039Yes, and giving poor people money is definitely a form of betrayal. You're getting them dependent and lazy.
>>37776058>Ichor's champion has been slowly seducing Shee and getting close to her, the police and vamp shit is all just a cover.This is pleasing to Baalzamon
>>37776039I thought you meant Betrayal as in he gives us stuff and then we go and kill his minion with it, as in, we're the one betraying him, not him betraying the memory of his champion.It doesn't really matter, evidently they *have* to give us a Gift if we kill their champions as part of the rules.
>>37776070Not really, we don't have a obligation to them in any form.
>>37776035We didn't use it to keep Rainya safe, in a one on one fight it's a lot more useful.>>37776054We just buff up toughness of Jaggantha to compete and upgrade our gear.>>37776065True hence why we buff armor and shields. We need to have at least one more disguise power to make sure no one see what we're becoming.
>>37776083>It doesn't really matter, evidently they *have* to give us a Gift if we kill their champions as part of the rules.So all we need to do for more Mirror stuff is to go murder his new champion?That's what he gets for throwing a hissy fit, I guess.
>>37776086And Baalz doesn't have an obligation to his champion in any form, especially after he dies.
>>37776116He'll also continue throwing overpowered gifts at us just to try and fuck us over.Imagine if we get one though? inb4 screaming that we don't want anything more from Mirror
>>37776083>It doesn't really matter, evidently they *have* to give us a Gift if we kill their champions as part of the rules.Yes, but the question was if he would be mad at us for having to do so. And I think he and Jaggantha are the ones least likely to get mad about it.>>37776105>We didn't use it to keep Rainya safeWe really need a power that allows us to protect our allies better.Maybe get Infectious Form to give them some physical Mutations. Or some barrier they can wish for.>>37776058I expect Baalzamon more in her case.>>37776035>I believe Ichor already has a championI think they got several anyway. There are Reunited all over the planet.
>>37776105So we're getting like 3 different abilities and spending money on armor, just to get a single benefit out of many that form would give us.All this when form costs only as much as one of those abilities, and gives us more than all of them combined.I don't see why we don't just get form.
>>37776145Nah, I'm cool with getting more from the Mirror.It pleases me to use his abilities and he can't do shit about it.Sweet sweet Willpower.
>>37776145We need to find out which other gods gives out a will boost get it from him(betting its jaggy cause he's stubborn) and just pump or will to ridiculous levels.>>37776163Yeah might be a good idea. Or try to get Rainya's champion power upgraded.>>37776178Because it is very noticeable and if we're near a fae they will more than likely see through a single layered disguise?
>>37776213If you were worried about being detected we already have tentacles.
>>37776281Tentacles are retractable into our back and even if the pierce the illusion they are less noticeable in us than scales, fangs, and claws.
