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/95D5RNhPBusiness http://pastebin.com/NwspZmKwAllies http://pastebin.com/yVgtiFeuAlly Powers http://pastebin.com/Xm6UGDyXQM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQMQM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQMOld thread >>37897977“I like you Rainya” you say, taking her gently by the shoulders, adding “We both, like it, and you know basically all there is to know about me. I don't have anything to hide from you Rainya. It makes me happy you can love the more unusual parts about me. We could, try taking things a bit further, slowly, and see where it leads. I would normally tell someone at this point about the dangers involved and how I and they might die at any point, but you already know that. But I want to remind you of it, I won't hold it against you if you back out, because its not going to be easier from here on.” You speak fast and realising you are babbling you take a deep breath to steady yourself, only for Rainya to lean in saying “Shhh”.Oh Gods is she going to, yes she’s going to kiss you you’re not ready what if she doesn’t like it does your breath smell oh what are you supposed to-“Awww that’s great!”Rainyas lips stop just short of yours as you both turn to see Lirael lying down in bed watching you with half-closed eyes.Rainyas face immediately heats up and she says “I uh, I gotta go Shee, I’ll see you in the morning.” And she flees your shack in haste.
You turn on the little vampire girl, who is looking at you with a goofy grin “Oh Shee” she says “That’s sooooo sweet, you two are perfect for each other!”You lay down on the bed next to her “Goodnight Lirael” you say.“I mean, you’re both great people, you’re friends, you both have so much in common” Lirael waxes on about your and Rainyas imagined virtues and compatibility, as you try to blot her out.Finally Lirael cuddles up to you and whispers, her lips brushing your ear “Y’know Shee, I like your tentacles too, just saying”.“Goodnight Lirael” you say from between gritted teeth---The next morning, Lirael wakes up next to you and is still wearing a smug grin. Even the bliss of feeding her only just makes her attitude tolerable, perhaps she thinks this means that Rainya will be feeding her too? Ah well, a decision for another time.You, Lirael, Dev and Rainya eat breakfast together before heading out.“You sure you can’t come?” Rainya asks Dev, he shakes his head “I can’t miss too many days” he explains “I need this job.”Ah yes, one of these days you’ll need to decide if you want to employer Rainya and Dev at the restaurant.You, Rainya and Lirael head out to the facility as Dev heads off to work.“So what are we looking for?” asks Lirael“Anything valuable” you say, as you walk down the corridors, Lirael on one side of you, Rainya on the other side “But preferably a vault with armour in it.”“I don’t need armour” says Lirael, striking a pose “I’m too tough!”“Isn’t she adorable” giggles Rainya, at your other side. Lirael takes this as an invitation to swap places with you, walking between you and Rainya, holding one of each of yours and Rainyas hands in hers, and giving Rainya an angelic smile.Yeah...You might need to tell Lirael to tone it down, she could just be being friendly, or she might be looking for another feeder...
After several hours of searching, you find another locked vault, a quick scan with your new senses tells you that it is psychically active, probably teleportation proof, or resistant at least you guess.At your side Lirael rolls her eyes at you “Here we geek again” she mutters and gets out her datapd, taking a seat on the other side of the corridor, pulling Rainya with her by her hand, though Rainya keeps looking back at you.How do you get in?>Pick the lock, usually routine>Break the door (this pleases Jagganatha)>Try teleporting anyway>Other (what?)
>>37902385>Pick the lock, usually routine>Use Enhance Senses

>>37902385>Pick the lock, usually routineEnhance senses>>37902416>I actually think she might be looking for another parent..Yeah. That's the impression I got.
>>37902385>>Break the door (this pleases Jagganatha)I just want to see a Shee Smash, us failing it and Lirael ripping the door off afterwards.
>>37902385>Pick the lock, usually routine
>>37902416Put yourself in his position, if Ash were the pc how would you feel getting strung along by Shee? We are doing exactly that when he finds out he's going to be pissed. Hell Tg/ has called females in other quests whores for less.
>>37902574Then he can go cry about it.
>>37902587To the Fae about how she's got psionic powers and is a devil worshiper.
>>37902574True, but seen from our perspective we also have to consider that he has been (or is) with quinn
>>37902574>how would you feel getting strung along by SheeShe isn't stringing him along at all.Ashs unfortunate lack of a meaningful social circle and resulting obession with Shee is unfortunate, and something we should help him with, but not her fault.I'm not responsible for the irrational attitude large parts of /tg/ have towards women.Also, you failed to rpovide example of that "constantly lying to him".>>37902596The fae won't do shit because we are marked as Kaes.
>>37902596Who we've already discussed those matters with? Okay.
>>37902574>if Ash were the pc how would you feel getting strung along by SheeRealistically /tg/ would have looked for a different waifu a long time ago.I would very much like to see Ash doing the same thing, It would be good for him.We can help him, really.
>>37902596If he'd be willing to do that then definitely fuck that guy. Buthonestly, that seems like just about the least likely thing that could happen.
>>37902612But both made it abundantly clear he was holding a pretty big candle for Shee.>>37902618Because she said she was interested in being his friend again but never calls unless she needs something from him. Saying he wanted to trying to rekindle their friendship and maybe something then go and jump another girls bones. He's already said we're stringing him along this pretty much proves it. As for Kae, we may be Marked but If he makes it public we're still fucked up the ass without lube.>>37902651Realistically Tg/ would have screwed her over or forced something. Which is what Ash is likely to do.>>37902654I hope you're right, I fear you're wrong.
>>37902718>But both made it abundantly clear he was holding a pretty big candle for Shee.True..
>>37902574/tg/ would be trying to fuck Kae or that vampire chick whose name I've forgotten.
>>37902749We were first girl man. We'd be trying to fuck them too though
>>37902718>but never calls unless she needs something from himWe have literally not called him once to get something from him. In fact, the only two times we ever called him was a). to appoint a night-out with him, where we got us into a fight with three vampires because we wanted to have his back, and b.) to inform him how Quinn tried to fuck with him.Stop making up this shit. > Saying he wanted to trying to rekindle their friendshipYes, friendship>As for Kae, we may be Marked but If he makes it public we're still fucked up the ass without lube.No we aren't, because we are Kaes. And if he were willing to do that,m that would pretty much prove us right in our decision to not enter a relationship with him, because it would reveal him as enormous asshole.
>>37902749Tg would be trying to harem all the girls and be pissy that our long time friend and first girl wouldn't jump on our dick.
>>37902763First girl in backstory. Vamp chick or Kae would have been first girl to be seen by /tg/.
>>37902763Nah, we were the childhood love interest that barely shows up.He is way more often together with Kae.Realistically, /tg/ would most likely either fuck Kae or Quinns sister.

Although you’ve taken apart this sort of lock before, it still takes time to duplicate the feat, almost an hour in fact. Lirael and Rainya are playing on Liraels datapad, you try to ignore the questions Lirael is asking Rainya about you in a whisper.Lirael knows exactly how good your hearing is, but you don’t know if Rainya is aware that you can hear the whole conversation. Fortunately for now, it’s nothing serious.Finally the lock is defeated and the door opens, you all scramble to your feet and you go in first, checking the vault for threats, finding none.“It’s clear” you say to Lirael and Rainya, who enter the vault behind you.“What is all this?” says Rainya, looking around in confusion “Robot skeletons?”“Cybernetics” you say, looking around at sealed packages of cybernetic arms, legs, implants of all sorts, even tails, wings and a gigantic spider body, damn someone here was...creative. You’re not cybersurgeon but a lot of this looks high quality and would sell for a high price. Of course, to you and your allies most of this is useless, with your abilities to heal quickly, your bodies would probably eject any implants. And without a skilled surgical team, not even Dev can benefit from these.You mark the location on your map and get ready to move on.“What’s next?” asks Rainya>Keep searching for armour vault>Other task (options in next post)>Other (what?)

Whatever. Fine you get a point, I not going to bother looking all this up again.>Yes, friendshipAnd we implied more which was the only reason he was ok. He even said then we were likely stringing him along.>No we aren't, because we are Kaes. Which works until he outs our psy or until a bigger Fae comes along and overrules her. Ash can spread the word out with ease especially if he uses Quin.>And if he were willing to do that,m that would pretty much prove us right in our decision to not enter a relationship with him, because it would reveal him as enormous asshole.Emotions are not logical and most people get pretty piissed off after being strung along. He may regret it alter but anger and pain is not conducive to clear thinking.>>37902891>>Keep searching for armour vault
>>37902891If we can actually do it >otherNeed need to hack in and up our clearance levelIf not>Keep searching for armour vault
>>37902891>Play some games or go shooting with Lirael and Rainya

>>37902934>until a bigger Fae comes along and overrules herOf which there are, like, two on the planet.Neither of which have any interest in messing with her pet Champion, because why would they?>Emotions are not logical and most people get pretty piissed off after being strung along. Yeah no.If he gets angry and shouts at us or whatever, I get that. I wouldn't even hold it against him. But what you're talking about us on a completly different level and not excusable.>. He even said then we were likely stringing him along.And he apologized for that completly uncalled for comment.The only reason we even had these conversations is because of him being so inappropriately pushy about it.
Please roll 1d20+3 again for searching

>>37903018>Of which there are, like, two on the planet.>Neither of which have any interest in messing with her pet Champion, because why would they?The king, Her father, The planetary court, and the Desert guy all over rule her. All he has to do is imply we're resistance and they'd come down on us or force Kae too.>If he gets angry and shouts at us or whatever, I get that. I wouldn't even hold it against him. But what you're talking about us on a completly different level and not excusable.Depends on how It plays out, but I can't see Tg/ not smacking him around after he yells at us. It'll play out like Charun's insult on us mark my words.>The only reason we even had these conversations is because of him being so inappropriately pushy about it.The comment was spot on it seems. The kid is pretty freaking isolated any perceived betrayal is going to get under his skin and stay there. If we had waited to persue Rainya until after he got some more people besides Quin and us to talk too I could see him letting it go. Now? not really especially since Quin will keep pushing for retaliation.

>>37903155>Implying either won't cause things to escalate.
>>37903123>All he has to do is imply we're resistanceGood thing he doesn't know about that at all, and Kaes word and Quinns grandpas word weight way more than his.>Depends on how It plays out, but I can't see Tg/ not smacking him around after he yells at us.I'm not responsible for others peoples actions, and Ashley being upset in that moment would be more justified than Charuns reaction was.>The comment was spot on it seems.No it wasn't, because Shee never made him any hopes at all. He was the one who kept asking, and Shee kept telling him no, its not going to be a thing now. Maybe it might be a thing at some point, but not now.Thats not stringing along. If we would have gotten mad at him fucking Quinn on the side, that would have been stringing along. But guess what? We didn't.
>>37903174>/tg/ didn't pick my husbando worlds gonna end!
>>37903123>It'll play out like Charun's insult on us mark my words.You keep saying mark my words, but you're just spouting idiotic nonsense. Am I supposed to take away from this that you have a learning disorder? Is the mark I should make one indicating you're retarded?
“We keep looking” you say, the three of you setting out again. After an hour searching through empty rooms you come across another vault, this one has a smaller door and is helpfully labelled *Cryo guns*. Well freeze guns are good against most targets and slow people down too, but your plasma weapons pack a harder punch.You get out your tools and kneel down, ready to start picking the lock when Lirael says “Shee this is boring, can Rainya and I go play SimGuns or something?”You look at Rainya, she shrugs and says “I don’t mind”, you look at Lirael, she is trying to hide a smirk, what is she up to?How do you respond?(Lirael and Rainya)>Stay with me>Sure, go play SimGuns>We’ll all go play SimGuns>Other (what?)(Vault)>Pick the lock, usual routine>Break the door (this pleases Jagganatha)>Try teleporting anyway>Come back later>Other (what?)
>>37903218>Break the door (this pleases Jagganatha)Again, faster we do this, faster we find other things. No one gets in the facility without Shee's teleport anyway, there is no danger of them being stolen.
>>37903218>Stay with me>Break the door (this pleases Jagganatha)Watch me break this shit!
>>37903218>Sure, go play SimGunsLirael behave.>Pick the lock, usual routine
>>37903228The risk is more the doors locking down from it.>>37903211God anon, my sides.

>>37903218>Stay with me>Break the door (this pleases Jagganatha)Cryo guns aren't that great, we can afford riksing to not get in.

>>37903462Ah, okay. So you took 10 again?
“Don’t leave just yet” you say to Lirael and Rainya “I might need your help for this next bit”“I’m not good with geek stuff” says Lirael.“Good thing I’m not doing that then” you say, extending your tentacles and taking a firm grip on the edge of the door, trying to pry it open.“You’re crazy” says Lirael “Are you going to help or not” you say between gritted teeth.“Fine!” says Lirael. The two of you pull and tug at the door, using your powers to boost your strength as far as you can. Eventually, with a scream of tortured metal, the vault door comes off and the two of you dump it on the floor.“Was that more fun?” you ask Lirael, she rubs her arms and says “You’re still crazy Shee”You examine the vault, there’s dozens of cryoguns, pistols, rifles, grenades, energy clips, enough to outfit a small army in here. “Well?” asks Lirael “We got in here, what now? Are we gonna take some?”“We still need to find some armour” you say, looking over the racks of guns.“But I’m *bored*”whines Lirael “You can do this Shee, I want to play SimGuns.”“I don’t mind looking after her” says Rainya “Besides, it’s not like you need either of us for this sort of thing, well” she corrects herself “Normally you wouldn’t, but if you’re going to rip every vault door off, maybe we should come with.”What’s the plan?>More vaults>Other task (options in next post)Lirael and Rainya?>Fine, go play>Stay with me>OtherYou feel the power of Jagganatha flowing into you, much stronger than before, accept Gift?>Y/NDC 20

>>37903643I don't think that's what she wants.
>She would have developed something else.Was that supposed to be "Shee would have developed something else"?Would NPC Shee have gotten involved in the Reunited plot?
>>37903726Probably not. Hell she probably wouldn't have the feeder history at all.
>>37903722>>37903690What do you think then?I think it has been subtly hinted for some time now that she would like that. And her trying to get some alone time with Rainya.. mmm.. don't like it
>>37903726Given that her name is literally *fae blood*, I'm willing to bet Shee would've been a part- or half-fae if we hadn't chosen her. She might still be.
>>37903750The Feeder thing seems likely to have been a MC exclusive aspect.On the other hand, she would have been the only one with really likely vampire contact, being the Hiver girl.
>>37903756She would never just jump Rainya. She'd talk to them about her desires first.
>>37903758My inner conspiracy theorist would be so happy. I felt like a mad genius when I looked that up.To have it have meant nothing... I'm sad.
>>37903779Rainya hive maid. Vamp she cleans house for loves maids and little girls. She's both. Tada.
ok, roll Willpower 1d20+9
>>37903756Eh, she probably would 'like' it, but she also respects Shees wishes in the matter.She is just giddy having two "parents" now. Its a big deal for her.I suspect she only wants to talk to her alone about how to appeal to Shee, considering Lirael knows us perfectly.

Shee turns into a hideous abomination and is now terrified of seeing Rainya or Lirael.
I'm secretly happy its Jaggantha we get our first failed roll with. This is gonna be interesting
Well, I guess this was bound to happen eventually.
>>37903870>random bad powerEvidently the Five get to shape the power if we fail, so I'm not that worried. Jaggantha likes us somewhat, so he'll either just give us a power he wants us to have, or he'll give us a negative power we can overcome and remove or turn into a positive power with effort. Probably the latter, since it fits with his aspect of overcoming obstacles and breaking limits pretty well.>>37903930Second failed roll, actually.
>>37903943>Second failed roll, actually.The other one was stupid and doesn't count.I'd rather not think about it.>>37903943>Evidently the Five get to shape the power if we failWas that the case? I'm pretty sure failed roll meant their powers went wild in us and did something random.
>>37903967Well, Mirror's failed roll let him alert the priests of Syrne, I don't think it did that at random and the comments from the other Four seemed to imply that he made it do so deliberately.
>>37903967Well Mirror shaped our last fail tog et that cult after us, so we'll see.>>37903943I'm worried it'll be stuck to us and a detriment to us until he lifts its. Like weight resistance trainng.
>>37903987That was his backup plan, actually.He tried to have the powers flat out kill us and when the other Four stopped him, he used it for that.They might be able to turn them, but I'm pretty sure they said if we don't shape it they run wild in us. I'm gonna look for the line.
>>37903996>I'm worried it'll be stuck to us and a detriment to us until he lifts its. Like weight resistance trainng.Maybe, but if it is like that, then we'll get something out of overcoming it. Jaggantha doesn't seem the type to do anything that won't make us stronger in the long run.
>>37903987Here we go>“If your Will is weak” says the Infinite Mirror “It will run wild and shape itself, it might be a boon or a curse.
What, no gloating Pally?

“Let’s all take a break” you say, “I could use one too.” It’s almost midday after all and you’ll all need something to eat in a bit. You can feel Jagganathas power within you, you’ll attend to that in a bit.Liraels smile falters for just a moment and then she says “Sure, lets go!” and rushes off. You and Rainya share a rueful glance and head after herYou spend an hour or so playing SimGuns with Lirael, followed by lunch in one of the facility canteens. Dried rations are almost palatable if you cook them right. Well, not really but it’s not and it won’t kill you. You find yourself pining a little for your restaurant. The power of Jagganatha lying within you surges suddenly, you attempt to shape it to your will but it is too strong and runs wild.You hear a clatter in the distance and you realise that it’s your plate hitting the floor, and its level with your head, wait, what?You’re lying on the floor, Lirael and Rainya are bending over you.“Shee, Shee” says Lirael frantically “Are you ok?”“Back” you croak“What?” asks Rainya in confusion“Get back!” you insist, there’s no knowing what could happen. They both jump back when you start convulsing, your muscles rippling as you squirm. The pain mounts within you, until you are screaming as you writhe, dimly you are aware of Lirael trying and failing to get into your mind.The pain washes away all rational thought, and then suddenly it stops. You just lie there and breathe, you can hear Lirael and Rainya calling your name. You climb groggily to your feet and reassure them you are ok.“I’m alright” rumbles a deep voice like an avalanche. You look around wildly for the source of the noise.You can spot no one in the cafeteria with you, just Rainya, Lirael and a bunch of smashed up tables.Wait, have Lirael and Rainya shrunk? Or have you....?“What happened?” the vast voice rumbles out again“Uh Shee” says the small Rainya “You’ve uh grown some?”
Lirael holds out her hands to their full width “You’re ginormous!” she exclaims. You take a moment to examine your new form.Your head brushes the ceiling, you’re 10, maybe 12 feet tall. Your skin is grey as stone, but still quite flexible, you have four muscled arms, and in one of your hands is a huge hammer. Your clothes have faded away, in their place is a simple loin cloth and chest wrap. Huh, that’s weird, you’d expect your clothes to be just torn shreds but rather....Something about this tickles a memory you were told about magic, something about permanent magical transformations not affecting ones personal possessions, but temporary ones can.Indeed, you think there might be a way back...With Lirael and Rainya gazing up at you in awe, and probably a little fear, you focus, you remember what you look like, what you’re supposed to look like and you push, hard.Lirael, Rainya, the whole room grows around you, until everything is its normal size. Your clothes have return too, you regular ones that is, the hammer is gone.“What was that?” asks Lirael, a grin on her face and her eyes wide.“I think” you say slowly “That was Jagganathas Gift.”“Do it again!” says Lirael“Uh, yeah” says Rainya “It looked...amazing.”Well, here goes nothing...You focus on your new power, and start to grow once more. Once again you are huge, around 12ft in height, your tentacles have gone, instead you have 4 muscular arms (and a much larger bust), in place of your clothes you have a loin cloth and chest wrap, leaving your visible abs on display. Your skin is grey as stone, and your hair a brilliant red, falling down your back. You examine the hammer in your hand, it appears to be made of some kind of metal, and in your current form you can use it one handed.
And so Shee hid in a room and locked the door. No one likes some freaky giant monster.
[Titanic Form Gained: For 8 Psychic Energy Shee can turn into a 12ft tall combat form. Her Durability and Might increase and she gains a Focus Weapon. Exact stats will be added to the sheet before next thread]“Wow” says Lirael, looking up at you “Uh huh” agrees Rainya, hugging herself with her arms, her mouth open, she is drooling a little.What do you do now?>Experiment with your new formOr a task from your list perhapsShee's To Do List:1. Make contacts to sell the guns.2. Activate psychic power (not recommended)3. Check out the reunited leads (elite cop, the brawler, etc.)4. Talk to Garrax (reunited)5. Talk to Kae6. Talk to Ash7. Talk to Yonsul8. Seek the favour of one of the Five (which?)9. Explore the research facility (looking for what?)10. Contact the Rebellion about a mission>Or something else?
>>37904428>Experiment with your new formGotta know whatv we got.
>>379044281. Make contacts to sell the guns.We can at lest sell of some cybernetics
>>37904428>Experiment with your new formFlex! Lift weights! Tease Rainya!
>>37904428>Experiment with your new formIf this is already an option, I'm curious to see what it means.Thats a pretty neat gift, depending on how it works in detail.
>>37904428>Explore the research facility>Experiment with your new formMore gifts?
>>37904428>fails shaping roll>all it does is turn us into another of Rainyas fetishes...Is Jaggantha shipping us with her too?
>>37904500the gods will it. but I don't......
>>37904428>Go play SimGuns with the girls.
It occurs to me we need someone more than Dev to frequent the hive, or get more information contacts if we want to be an effective resistance cell.
>>37904428>Experiment with your new form
>>379044284. Talk to Garrax (reunited)
“I think I need to test this out a little” you say.“Good idea” agrees Rainya“How?” asks LiraelYou spend an hour testing the capabilities of your new form. As expected you are far stronger and tougher in this shape, you can easily lift the warmech and after a brief argument with Rainya you convince her to test some weapons on you, the pistols at least. Only the heavy plasma pistols are able to cause you pain, smaller weapons barely even tickle. You can maintain the form for 10 minutes before it ends naturally and the hammer you have it able to tear holes in steel plates, when driven by your new strength.Once you’ve had your fun, you wonder what to do next.See to do list above, what do you do?>Pick option
>>37904766>Make contacts to sell the cybernetics
>>37904766>1. Make contacts to sell stash itemsWe need underworld contacts to sell off the cybernetics. They can also hopefully keep an eye out for things happening in the city. We're awfully blind in the city right now.
>>37904789noThis might save the lifes of our comrades some day, I say we keep it
>>37904766>Play with Lirael and RainyaLater,>10. Contact the Rebellion about a mission
>>37904808We don't need to sell all of it.
>>37904766>10. Contact the Rebellion about a mission
>>37904766>Contact the Rebellion about the cyberneticsThey can use it.
>>37904766>Talk to Garrax
>>37904428>10. Contact the Rebellion about a mission>>37904839If anything, then the cryo stuff. They have little use for the cybernetics, because it takes complicated operations.
>>37904808We have a Large surplus of cybernetics and cryo guns, and it's good gear. We can use it the money to get people to watch spots of interest for us in the city.
>>37904766>otherDine with Lirael and Rainya at resturant5. Talk to KaeWhen time comes, take a night on the town and meet Kae, quinn etc
>>37904862I'm fine with that.
>>37904884>Dine with Lirael and Rainya at resturantWe could combine this with making contacts, actually.Since that one Chef has underworld connections.
>>37904878>>37904867>>37904839>>37904803>>37904789Why are you so eager to sell our stuff?We are in no dire need for money, and god (the five) knows we might need these thing some day.Maybe equip the dusters when the day come
>>37904915>Why are you so eager to sell our stuff?Because we don't need cybernetics, and it would allow us to pad our finances for potnetial future expenses.
>>37904915I can't see us needing the cyber stuff.It takes complicated surgery to put it into people, so we can't give it to the Dusters or rebellion. So its useless to us.Better make money out of it to spend on useful stuff.
A tie between looking for contacts and calling the rebellion for a mission.Ok, I know what to do with this.
>>37904942We get 2000 a week, we have plenty for now
>>37904942Why give them to the rebellion, then? Wouldn't hivers pay better?
>>37904915I didn't say sell it, >>37904839 give works too.
>>37904963Nice, do your thing
>>37904965One guy wanted to give it away, the rest wanted to sell it.
>>379049642k is basically nothing though.
Guys, just think of the all the possibilities we have with these cybernetics! Of course, we will still have to amputate people for them, but it will be worthy it.
>>37905035We can do all that stuff with mutations too.And we would still need someone capable of performing that surgery for the cybernetics.
I think the cybernetics might come in handy when Dev or Rainya inevitably gets seriously busted
>>37905035Let's not give Rainya ideas.
>>37905070Then we use our multitude of mutation granting gifts.Which we can actually use, while we can not graft cybernetics on people and would have to find someone who can first.Something that would, you know, cost a lot of money. So we could easily sell those cybernetics now, and have the money to pay for a surgery if it ever became necessary.
>>37905070Then just keep the better cybernetics and sell off any of the lower-grade stuff, or just a small to medium amount if it's all the same quality.
>>37905099I hate how you make such an excellent point.. I still say we keep the weapons though. Some day we will need them to defend dust town
>>37905137I'd say we hand some of the cryo weapons to the rebellion, it can seriously improve our standing there and we still got several vaults to open with weapons we can use to arm people with later.
We should probably tell the rebellion about plans to make everyone feeders for either the fae or the vamps, and telling them that it will roll out here
>>37905099Consider we still haven't even found a buyer for the guns, I say we keep them for now.
>>37905181I'm afraid they might end up doing exactly what the vampires want and attack those attempts and destroy their credibility with it.We need to know more about how exactly this is planned to go, before we tell anyone, I think.
>>37905213We haven't even looked yet, and I for one don't want to sell the guns at all. The guns we might actually need one day in bulk.
>>37905243I'm also for keeping the most of the guns
“Time to head out” you say to a giggling Lirael, you’ve been entertaining her by trying to juggle heavy objects in your new shape, without much success.“Just a few more minutes” begs Lirael.“No” you say “we’ve found enough stuff for today, we really need to find someone who can sell this for us.”“What about the Rebellion?” asks Rainya, as you tidy up the place before leaving “Nah” you say “They’ll take too big a cut, we need to go to someone direct.”“I mean” clarified Rainya “shouldn’t we be keeping it for our next mission for them or something?”“All of the intel they’ve given me so far is either useless or too high-risk” you say to Rainya, and it’s true, none of the intel the rebellion gives you on your daily call has been good mission fodder.“So what?” asks Rainya “You’re going to sell it for personal gain?”You recall that why you don’t care much for the rebellion, Dev and Rainya have their own reasons for believing in the cause.“I just want to get the best deal” you reassure Rainya “once we have a reliable way to turn some of this into cash, then we’ll decide what to do.”“Oh ok” says Rainya, satisfied.Either way, it’s best you get back to Dust Town, you don’t want to call the rebellion from the facility, in case they can trace you, and you might be able to find someone capable of selling this stuff if you visit the right bars.“C’mon” you say to Lirael and Rainya “Lets go” and the three of you teleport back to your shack. It’s a much harder teleportation than usual, as if something is fighting you, when you arrive you realise half your shack is missing, torn apart.The three of you walk out of what’s left of your door into a scene of devastation.All around dusters homes have been torn down as if a storm has ripped through here, no, not a storm...a storm doesn’t leave bodies riddled with bullet holes in the street, a storm doesn’t leave plasma burns melted through tin sheets. Not a storm, something else.
“No, no...” whispers Rainya. You stick together and wander around, the devastation is widespread, covering over a mile, all around there are living dusters, piling up bodies and looking for survivors.Lirael huddles by your side, and starts to cry. Rainya just looks horrified. You grab a passerby “What happened here?” you ask him, an old duster.“The police happened” he says quietly “Looking for rebels they said. You should go, they might come back” You don’t recognise him, but perhaps he knows you?“Shee?” asks Rainya in an empty voice “what do we do?”Its mid-afternoon, Dev will still be at work.What do you do?>Help search for survivors>Look for Devs parents>Head back to the facility>Head into the Hive, find Dev>Do something else (what?)
>>37905330>Help search for survivors>Look for Devs parents
>>37905330>Look for Devs parents
>>37905330>Look for Devs parents>Help search for survivors
After this we need to Find Dev and Call Yonsul. Any bets as too police Reunited did this to bait us into the open?
>>37905330>Help search for survivors>Look for Devs parents>as if something is fighting youSome sort of detection? The place having changed?If they left behind a spotter, they know us now, after having appeared unharmed from that shed.We have to relocate either into the Hive, or into the facility.
>>37905330>Take the girls back to the facility>Head into the Hive, find Dev
>>37905330>Help search for survivors>Look for Devs parents>OtherGather our and Rainya's stuff>Contact Yonsul
>>37905330>>Help search for survivors>>Look for Devs parents
>>37905410>Any bets as too police Reunited did this to bait us into the open?Not directly.I'm pretty sure the police reunited is the police guy who got tasked with hunting down the rebels.I doubt he already knows we are one of them.
>>37905410Hopefully thats not why
>>37905448Good point, how should he know
>>37905448>>37905457Depends on how much he and Garrax talk. Garrax knows we're reunited, Tom is dead and We were wearing our clubbing clothes which were still dusty.
>>37905477This is some consecratory theory you got thereI was thinking along the same lines
>>37905477Its possible. But there is a huge difference between Garrax knowing we are a Duster, and knowing exactly where we live.Assuming he and Garrax are that much on speaking terms.As of now, its simply more likely he was here as police guy hunting down rebels, rather than looking for us in particular.
>>37905540Well Police guy might have just scorched earth to flush us out. Us being a duster was pretty obvious. They also think we follow Ichor exclusively which means we're family oriented. Easy way to get us exposed if they miss. Still we'll see soon no doubt.
>>37905594>Well Police guy might have just scorched earth to flush us out.I see no point in that considering we own a business on our name.
>>37905607They might've burned that too.
>>37905607They might have burned that as well. We'll see. Besides they might not know we own it yet.
>>37905623But burning down places we are likely to be at is a terrible way to find us. It just makes us hide in places they don't know.It would be far better to wait for us at these places and then attack. Rather than forewarning us that they are after us.I mean, yeah, they might be idiots. But it seems very unlikely compared to the plausible alternative of him simply having looked for the rebels.
>>37905330I would have to say this is very sloppy work on squashing a rebellion.To be expected on a dystopian shit-hole.I wonder what would be needed to get a hive apartment for us and everyone else.
>>37905665>I wonder what would be needed to get a hive apartment for us and everyone else.We already got one in the restaurant, actually.
>>37905665Problem we tarry to long in the hive we can't leave easily and Lirael can get found out.
>>37905715Then maybe we need to see about setting up a few safe houses in duster areas then.Sell a few dozen weapons, then see if we can get some safe houses here, so we don't have to hang out at the facility so much.
>>37905715We actually can leave the Hive easily.And Liraels illusion is largely save, unless we run into that power supressing dude.We could also take the facility as permanent home now, but I worry about what made our teleport more difficult now.
What if Mirror made the police Reunited into his new Avatar?
>>37905748>safe houses in duster areasThey don't have houses in the DustTowns.We could look for some LowHive, but that doesn't actually have any benefits to just using the apartment we got.
>>37905771The Sargent rather than being best girl has become worst girl
>>37905771The police Reunited favored the King. So its very very unlikely.
>>37905752Thing is Our teleport is Fae traceable and Fae can see through the glamour. There's a reason we are not supposed to use our powers in the hive. I'm amazed we didn't get found fighting Tom, guess his wards were really sturdy>>37905748Safe houses in dust town? No such thing.
>>37905773Well, long term we should see about getting a few low hive safe houses. And maybe 1-2 crash locations in dusterville.
>>37905784What has this to do with Yonsul?>>37905795>Thing is Our teleport is Fae traceable and Fae can see through the glamour.Not as far as we know, on both accounts.
>>37905752We should have made the facility a club and got the king to make it our safe place.Or that's a bad idea. I don't know.
>>37905818Anon it was said in the second or third thread our powers are trackable in the hive.
>>37905795>Thing is Our teleport is Fae traceable and Fae can see through the glamour.I don't remember it ever being confirmed they can trace teleport. We avoid teleport in the Hive because thre is a slight chance it might be a thing, but we wouldn't be teleporting out of there anyway.And fae aren't significantly better at piercing Illlusions, and fae are also pretty rare.
>>37905795One of the reasons I want Alter Power is that one of it's sub-powers specifically makes our psychic abilities impossible to detect or trace.
>>37905852We know there's a group of them in hive. They are curious by nature. Not counting a gifted who could do it by some other means.>>37905867Fair enough.
>>37905851No it wasn't. We speculated that might be a thing, but experience sofar has not confirmed that.
>>37905883All of those would still need to overcome Liraels massive bonus on illusion.At which point they could also pierce our disguise for mutations.
“We help” you say simply to Lirael and Rainya “We help.”The three of you spend the rest of the afternoon clearing wreckage, you and Lirael using your strength as subtly as you can. There are survivors, some unhurt, many badly wounded. Fortunately duster houses don’t cause many injuries when they fall. The police weapons cause plenty however.You find Devs parents...or rather, their remains. Looks like an explosion of some kind, but two bodies the right age and build, huddled in Devs parents house, it’s his parents.“Oh no” says Rainya, joining you as you pull them out of the wreckage for the corpse cart to collect “What’ll we tell Dev?”“The truth” you say simply “Nothing else to tell him.”Fortunately Lirael is spared this sight, once she’d broken down over the third dead body you sent her to the hospital to help out there.As the light fades you and everyone else keep working, then the many dusters who work in the Hive come home, Dev among them.You make sure that all three of you are outside where his house used to be when he gets there.“What, what happened?” asks Dev “Mum, dad?”“I’m sorry” you say “They got caught in, well ,they got caught up in it.” Walking here, Dev has already seen a lot of what’s happened.“No, no....” says Dev, collapsing to his knees, his voice a whisper “Where are they?”“They took the” you cough dust out of your lungs “they took everyone who died away, to put them to rest, I think there’s supposed to be a wake tonight.”In truth you’re not really sure, no one is organising anything, and this is too large for the usual duster community spirit to handle.“Oh” says Dev, tears starting to roll down his face “Well, I uh, oh...”“Yeah” you’re not sure what else to say, though you join in the hug with Lirael and Rainya, as they both cling to Dev.---Late that night, you’re all at the mass wake that hasn’t really been organised, so much as just...happened.
There are hundreds of people grieving, you and your friends among them. Today Dev lost his family, but you all lost friends. Just ordinary faces you smiled and nodded to every day, all gone.You all stand around as drinks are drunk, and people tell tales of the dead, you and your companions are mostly silent, your allies are in shock, and you don’t want to draw attention to yourself.Then the tine starts to change, from grief – to anger. Questions are yelled out, who is to blame? Why did the police come and kill hundreds here? What is to be done about it.As the shouting gets louder Dev turns to you and says “Shee, do you suppose I could sleep at the facility? Just for tonight of course?”Your heart breaks a little that he thinks he needs to ask, but before you answer you hear the loud voices of the crowd, many are blaming the police, and the Hivers, and many more are blaming the rebellion. If they decide to turn on Hivers or rebels, you could all be in trouble.Where are you and your companions staying tonight?>Research facility>Restaurant>Other (where?)And what do you do about the crowd?>Just leave>Convince them the police are to blame>Convince them the Fae are to blame>Other (what?)

This is all part of the vampires plan and the Governor is probably in on it. It might not even have been real police that did this.
If we start a riot the vamps get what they want

>>37906450They want someone to blame, I expect something like a DC 15. We got a 13?Going to have people blaming the fae, blaming hivers, blaming the vampires, blaming the rebels, blaming the governor, blaming the serec, blaming cultists, blaming the police, blaming their neighbors.Probably even blame little green men from mars if those crackpot theories are still around.Look for someone to blame for living in this shithole like this. And then having the cops or anyone else blow the fuck out of it for no damned reason.Probably just rounding people up to execute them. See we are tracking down the rebels!
If we had better control over our facility we could rehouse people there someday
>>37906587No, that's stupid.
>>37906587Bad idea, turns it from a safehouse into an apartment complex, that is closer to a fort.We could then expect them to land with both feet on it.
“We’re all going to the restaurant tonight” you say to your companions “Afterwards, afterwards we’ll see.”“Right” says Dev, “Yeah, we’ll do that” he seems in a daze though, as if he doesn’t care.“Are we going now?” asks Rainya, one arm around a quiet Lirael“In a few minutes” you say “Wait here.” You head into the midst of the loudest argument.“It’s the police!” yells one voice “They had the guns, they killed folk!”“They wouldna been here if not for the rebels!” ripostes another “What are they doing anyway, do they think they can change the entire world? It can’t be done!”It can, a tiny voice whispers inside your head, it can be anything you want it to be. You push it down and raise your own voice “Who orders the police?” you say “Who tells them where to go?”There’s a pause, then lots of voices start talking “The fae, the vamps, Hivers, rich folk, The Governor.”“That’s right” you say “Galryn Versmuth, Governor of Hive 39, oh the police might have held the guns” you concede “And they might even have thought they were looking for rebels, but make no mistake, they came here to kill Dusters on the order of the Governor. Did he even write an order, did he even tell them what they were to do? Or dill he kill hundreds with a dismissive wave of his hand? He holds the power, I say he should hold the blame.”There is a pause and then voices are raised in support of your argument, even as others call you a rich hiver and a rebel agitator, tempers flare and a brawl erupts, despite being at the centre of it, you manage to fight your way free with little difficulty, though there will be a few people nursing broken bones tomorrow as a result.Once free of the growing melee you head over to your friends “Lets go” you say.“But what about?” Rainya gestures to the brawling crowd“They won’t listen” you shake your head “They’re letting off steam, maybe later they’ll listen, lets go”.
---You lead your exhausted, somewhat traumatised allies to the Waystation, heading in the back door. You see Gambon smoking outside the kitchen entrance.“You look like shit boss” he observes “Someone take a run at you?”“It’s been a rough day” you say “We’re all going up to the residence, I’ll be back down to grab some food in a bit.”“Right” he says “Get some rest.”You all go upstairs and your friends start pulling blanets out of cupboards and making up beds as you take a quick detour to a private room, you can feel the power of the King of Hell burning within you, aching for release.The King of Hell offers 1 of 4 GiftsCharisma of the King of Hell (2) – Gain 2 ranks in CharismaWillpower of the King of Hell (2) – Gain 2 ranks in WillpowerForm of the King of Hell (2) – Gain 2 ranks in the Form mutation, gaining a demonic appearance, wings, a tail and can breathe fire.Mark of LoyaltyYou can place an invisible magical symbol upon someone who follows you. This symbol can only be detected by very powerful magic, though it immediately becomes obvious when triggered.If anyone bearing a mark betrays you, the mark burns into their flesh, leaving a horrible scar and causing terrible pain and harming them. You are automatically aware of the identity of the one who betrayed you, and the general nature of the betrayal, though not the exact details.Vote in 10 minutes
>>37906736>Mark of Loyaltyseems pretty cool, if not too useful atm.Do the people you use it on have to know?
>>37906736Well Willpower seems really go get especially since it'll combo with Mirror's and let us really rack up will boosts and peripherals.Mark is good as well though.
>>37906736>Willpower of the King of Hell (2) – Gain 2 ranks in WillpowerThats just too easy already.Of course we're gonna pick that.Mark of Loyalty is very meh, we can already punish people and root our betrayal if we were willing to go that far.
>>37906783>>37906793Wanna bet dad had an upgraded version of it on Charun?
>>37906736Willpower, no contest.I mean, the others are useful, but after Mirror's little snit and these fucking dice, I want the Willpower boost and the ability to boost it further more than anything.
>>37906806ouch.. yeah, that might be it.It could be a great way to deal with garrax
>>37906736>betrays youWhat constitutes a "betrayal" here?>>37906806Pretty good chance thats true.
>>37906826>It could be a great way to deal with garraxGarrax doesn't follow us.
>>37906736Will power is a no brainer of course. If we had ranks in it, there would be a discussion, but no real choice cause of dice.>>37906806Probably.
>>37906806I thought it was a Deathblock from our father's psychic powers.
>>37906827>What constitutes a "betrayal" here?Harms you or your allies, reveals your secrets, things of that nature.
>>37906864We were about to see secrets about Dad from Charun mark takes effect and offs him.
>>37906897That would be exactly how Deathblock works.
Rolled 15 + 5 (1d20 + 5)>>37906880Of the secret was revealed under coercion would it care?
it seems people are set on willpower?nobody for charisma or form?
>>37906736>Charismawe don't need that much>WillpowerAll my yes, we all know how much we roll that stat>Formgood but not the best>Markis there anyone we can see us using that on?
>>37906914We start taking penalties on char and form is kinda meh since we have titan.
>>37906912It would still activate, but it would also tell you that coercion was used - though not the specifics.
>>37906914We can already upgrade Charisma, not a fan of physical mutations.We want Willpower since we can't otherwise increase it due to Infinite Mirror being a bitch.
>>37906914Both are okay, but Willpower is by far our most used stat. It supports basically everything we do.There is really no reason not to improve our Will whenever we can.
>>37906935Pally removed penalties from high ranks. You can choose negatives to remove later if you want to reduce costs.>At Charisma of the King of Hell 6 you gain a +2 bonus to your Fellowship ability score. This does not count against your Fellowship score when calculating XP costs and can exceed normal human limits.>At Charisma of the King of Hell 7 your fellowship bonus from this power rises to +4. You can purchase a single Additional Charisma of the King of Hell power for a discount of 3XP (2 rather than 5).>At Charisma of the King of Hell 8 your fellowship bonus from this power rises to +6.
>>37906935>We start taking penalties on charFlaws are no longer mandatory
>>37906920Replying to myself>is there anyone we can see us using that on?Quinn?
>>37906976>Flaws are no longer mandatorywhy
>>37906986He isn't our Follower either.
5 minute vote>Willpower>Charisma>Form>Mark of Loyalty
>>37907004>He isn't our Follower either.Yet, it's the most likely use I can see.
>>37907034>WillpowerNo brainer, to me.
>>37907001They were never really mandatory anyway, since they could always have been bought off for 5 XP.>>37907034>Willpower
>>37907034>>WillpowerUseful power unlock,
>>37907034>Mark of Loyalty
Welp, looks like demonic form wonI'm joking
>>37907147So what happens if we stack multiple forms at once?We turn into Sheezilla?
>>37907206I like this idea a lot
You can feel the power of the King of Hell surging within you, making your psychic abilities stronger than ever.Your head downstairs and order several meals for everyone, carrying them up yourself. Your allies, no, your friends are all sat around the living room of the residence, slumped in chairs and staring at nothing.You put places of food in their laps and hand them utensils, “Mmnot hungry” mumbles Dev“Eat” you insist “Or I’ll feed you myself”. Grudgingly he picks up a fork and starts to eat. There is no conversation over dinner.Once everyone is fed, you sort out sleeping arrangements. Both Lirael and Rainya want to share with you, and Dev heads off on his own.“Someone needs to stay with Dev” you say to Lirael and Rainya “Can you too look after each other?”“But Shee...” they both protest“Lirael” you say, kneeling down “We’re always together, but this one night, I need to look after Dev, ok?”“Kay” says Lirael, sulkily“Rainya” you say, standing “I think sleeping together right now could result in either of us doing something before we’re ready for it”“Yeah” says Rainya, blushing a little“Look after each other” you admonish them. And then you head to Devs room.“What?” he asks“I’m just here in case you need me” you say, sitting in a chair next to his bed.Dev climbs into his bed after a moment you hear him say “Thanks”.You sit there until Dev has fallen asleep, and then you head back to your bed, alone.---And thread ends there, thank you for playing, for your actions today you have gained 14 XPNext thread in just over 13 hours, twitter update as usual.Character sheets will be updated before next thread, too tired tonight.
>>37907292Thanks for hosting again today
>>37907292Thanks for running Pally.Great session, with all its ups and downs.Also staying with Dev was a nice touch, thanks for that.
>>37907292Thanks for running.Quick question, are we okay with purchasing more mechanics for Dev now?
Rolled 13 + 5 (1d20 + 5)>>37907206Want.
>>37907292>Next thread in just over 13 hoursYou learned my work hours didn't you? Mean QM.
>>37907292thanks for running pally, you're aces!
>>37907365>Quick question, are we okay with purchasing more mechanics for Dev now?Yes
so 35 xp available for SheeBuy up to rank 5 for willpower of king of hell, which leaves us with 20 xp total?Lirael has 39 xp available?Rainya has 24 xp available too.Dev has 59 xp now?
>>37907386But anon I'm going to be questing for the next 2 weeks
>>37907292That bit with Dev was a nice touch. It's good to see Shee's softer side. Who knows how long it will still exist?
>>37907445I think Willpower of the King of Hell and Willpower of the Infinite Mirror are the same power, in the same way Durability of the King of Hell and Durability of Jaggantha are the same power.So we're at Rank 7 right now and could get to rank 9, since that's the higher of the two favors.
>>37907445Willpower from 2 sources just stacks, you currently have Willpower of the King of Hell and Infinite Mirror 7
>>37907453good bye, sleep schedule
>>37907453All is forgiven, if only because you're letting me get to bed before midnight.See you at 6ish again.
>>37907490So yeah, we can buy rank 9, which is a no brainer.Still leaves us with 25xp for Shee. Should we think about some fellowship improvements since we will want to start building contacts now?Do we have any interest in 'Will Reinforces the Body'Adds will mod to all magical attacks, and 2x modifier to HP.I figure Rainya is likely get to durability 8, which will be DR10 and +10more hp?
So, Allies purchases.Lirael 14/39>Endurance 12 (-15XP)>Healing 12 (-10XP)Rainya 7/24>Durability 7 (-15XP)>Stealth 2 (-2XP)Willpower or more Durability, or the last two level of Duplicate instead of the Durability 7?Dev 30/59>Mechanics 4 (-8XP)>Deactivate (-4XP)>Strength 18 (-6XP)>Constituation 18 (-6XP)>Intelligence 13 (-5XP)What combat specs do we want for Dev?
>>37907691We might as well make use of Devs Perk and increase Con and Streng to 20.Dev 18/59>Mechanics 4 (-8XP)>Deactivate (-4XP)>Strength 20 (-12XP)>Constituation 20 (-12XP)>Intelligence 13 (-5XP)
>>37907691Shee 25/35>Willpower of the Mirror/King 9 (-10XP)So, what do for Shee? Get a few Ranks in Darkness? Or more tentacles for even more DAKKA?Lirael 14/39>Endurance 12 (-15XP)>Healing 12 (-10XP)Rainya 7/24>Durability 7 (-15XP)>Stealth 2 (-2XP)Dev 18/59>Mechanics 4 (-8XP)>Deactivate (-4XP)>Strength 20 (-12XP)>Constituation 20 (-12XP)>Intelligence 13 (-5XP)
>>37907691>What combat specs do we want for Dev?Well, with the warmech, he uses the rifle and melee.Is the rifle computer only, or does the pilot feats affect it? Could he get sniper with it or Rapid Shot?What does the strength do for Dev then?And will we want to push him up on int so he can mastercraft stuff too, and improve the mech.He may end up needing to get use computer to also make best use of mech sensors.
>>37907864Darkness or leveling up smaller guns and rapid fire.
>>37907865>What does the strength do for Dev then?He can't necessarily always fight in the mech. Especially in the Hive, so its good to max out his Stats in that regard.Melee is already fairly goodI would recommend Sniper on that gun, for single target damage.
>>37907645>Adds will mod to all magical attacks, and 2x modifier to HP.To defences against all magical attacks, yes.It would be prudent. We don't have much of a defence against them currently, and the Mirror, who governs sorcery, is out for our blood, so it's likely we'll run into someone with spells or at least some spell-likes that wants to kill us soon.Alter Power is also something that should be seriously considered due to it's versatility. Some desire was expressed for Mental Contact and Ego Humbling Strike last thread as well.>>37907864Lirael's spending is fine.For Rainya, I'd keep leveling Durability for now. There will be a peripheral for Psychic Shield that lets you put protections into the minds of others eventually, if it's not a default functionality. I prefer to focus on survivability over damage output in companions when feasible.Dev's combat specs should be ones that can transfer into the Warmech's weaponry. Computer Use and Mastercraft are also worth considering.Darkness isn't really good until higher levels, but it might be worth investing.Getting more tentacles would be...versatile.
>>37907927>Getting more tentacles would be...versatile.So, more Pistol training and tentacles for Shee?Shee 16/35>Willpower of the Mirror/King 9 (-10XP)>Ranged Combat 5 (-2XP)>Rapid Shot 5 (-2XP)>Pistols Training 5 (-5XP)>Tentacles 3 (-6XP)Gives us 4 more tentacles for gunsand the other two Rainyas.We should leave the 10XP as buffer.
>>37908046How much does will reinforces the body cost?
>>379080795 XP, as is standard with peripherals.
I think we should go for more killing or companion protection power
>>37907927>Dev's combat specs should be ones that can transfer into the Warmech's weaponry. Computer Use and Mastercraft are also worth considering.Does the warmech heavy laser gun, is it a heavy weapon? If so can't get sniper. If we can, it would be worth it I think. Otherwise just get Rapid shot. The range on the gun should be quite good however.Probably just weapon skill also for Dev, swords, melee training, long arms training, ranged combat.
>>37908117We need it then for reasons you already stated we can get more tents later.
>>37908046XP is wrong, of course. Should be 10/35AlsoDev 6/59>Mechanics 4 (-8XP)>Strength 20 (-12XP)>Constituation 20 (-12XP)>Intelligence 13 (-5XP)>Mastercraft 1 (-4XP)>Overcharge Weapon (-4XP)>Ranged Arms 2 (-4XP)>Sniper 2 (-4XP)Sniper under the assumption it works for the Heavy Laser rifle.>>37908079Standard 5XP.
>>37908225Dev has 0 points in sniper, would be buying sniper 1 or we just buy 2 levels of it.
>>379082772 levels of it from scratch.Which makes 4XP thanks to the discount from the GunSim.
>>37908046Somewhat surprised you didn't go for Alter Power or Will Reinforces The Body over Tentacles and skills/feats.>>37908171>Does the warmech heavy laser gun, is it a heavy weapon?I don't think so. It's probably just a heavy-variant weapon rather than a true heavy weapon, like the Heavy Plasma Rifles.
>>37908046I'd leave the tents off and get will reinforces the body.
>>37908322>didn't go for Alter PowerForgot about that.How aboutShee 0/35>Willpower of the Mirror/King 9 (-10XP)>Ranged Combat 5 (-2XP)>Rapid Shot 5 (-2XP)>Pistols Training 5 (-5XP)>Tentacles 3 (-6XP)>Alter Power (-5XP)>WRtB (-5XP)No point in any reserve that isn't at least 10 anyway.
>>37908322So instead we get rapid shot and get a barrage of 4d8 +damage. I say no reserve for dev, not much use for it.Get cleave later for dev so he can slice stuff up.>>37908361reserve is nice, but i don't see much use for it currently. I think we should start pushing fellowship soon, since we are having to step into leadership.
>>37908433>get rapid shotSniper is superior on rifles. By a pretty significant margin until later levels.
>>37908433Sniper is for crit seeking which breaks shields and does a lot more damage.
>>37908470Of course it is. But it depends if the Heavy laser rifle qualifies for it.If it does, i say get sniper 5 for him
>>37907864Shee 0/35>Willpower of the Mirror/King 9 (-10XP)>Ranged Combat 5 (-2XP)>Rapid Shot 5 (-2XP)>Pistols Training 5 (-5XP)>Tentacles 3 (-6XP)>Alter Power (-5XP)>WRtB (-5XP)Lirael 14/39>Endurance 12 (-15XP)>Healing 12 (-10XP)Rainya 2/24>Durability 8 (-15XP)>Stealth 2 (-2XP)Dev 0/59>Mechanics 4 (-8XP)>Strength 20 (-12XP)>Constituation 20 (-12XP)>Intelligence 13 (-5XP)>Mastercraft 1 (-4XP)>Overcharge Weapon (-4XP)>Ranged Arms 4 (-8XP)>Sniper 3 (-6XP)
>>37908433>I think we should start pushing fellowship soon, since we are having to step into leadership.It would be better to push Charisma. We could get the first two points of Fellowship for a slightly lower cost, true, but each rank of Charisma grants a +1 to Persuasion, Intimidation and Leadership in addition to it's Fellowship boost. The leadership boost from Charisma can double with the crown and also increases the crown's native bonus to mind-affecting powers.>>37908502The critical range is ludicrously wide at higher levels as well.
>>37908567>It would be better to push Charisma. We could get the first two points of Fellowship for a slightly lower cost, true, but each rank of Charisma grants a +1 to Persuasion, Intimidation and Leadership in addition to it's Fellowship boost. The leadership boost from Charisma can double with the crown and also increases the crown's native bonus to mind-affecting powers.Yes, but what I mean by fellowship, sorry for not being clear, is general people skills.Commander, Negotiator along with Investigator.Should dev also get some pilot skill too?
>>37908545Looks good to me.Might want to start thinking about other purchases for Lirael, but its not urgent now.
>>37908626>Should dev also get some pilot skill too?We could do that next time.
>>37908630Probably might and quickness next.Quickness is nice, extra actions.We don't have information on other powers of hers.In story we should do more to track down her mom.Don't really want her to be a big gift at the vampire get together.
>>37908707>Don't really want her to be a big gift at the vampire get together.Since they are in the hands of powerful fae, thats not a possibility.We should probably boost Quickness, more thats true. Also Command, to improve her Illusion would be useful.
>>37908744Yeah, she gets these abilites :>Empathic Projection, Illusion, Mental Contact, Psychic Blast, Sleep, SuggestionAt master effects at command 12.Need to push command next. Not sure healing means much, we don't have anyone we want to turn into a vampire yet.
>>37908567You want to make it >>37908545 official, or do you have anything to change?
>>37908838>Not sure healing means muchPretty much only took Healing for the better HP/vitae rate, which makes her a better second healer next to Shee.
>>37908838Master effects wouldn't actually do anything further yet since I'm kind of beating my head against a brick wall with Telepathy's mastery bonuses.>>37908846Reformatting now.
>>37908903Pally might want to start thinking about something to restrict the tenacle-gun spam.Since he gives us guns and ammo for free, there is nothing really stopping us from going with 20 guns of different types and massacring everything.
I kinda pity Dev, being the big muscular guy who wants to protect all those small girls despite being far squishier then they are.I wonder if we can give him our Titan form with Infectious Form.

>>37909098>Lirael HyulI like how you think.
>>37909098Looks good.Infectious form seems to be one we have to be careful with.Don't want Rainya bugging Shee to give her tentacles. But otherwise would be coolAre there any other things that can hand out gifts or enhance allies?I know Lirael can make vampires/dhampires.I wonder if there are higher blood control levels too.
