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/AnAspiringQM“Sure it is tough” you say “that tells us the really good stuff is hidden here, help me out Dev.”The two of you spend the rest of the evening and much of the night working on the lock, but it frustrates you at every turn.“Why won’t this work!” yells Dev in frustration, throwing his tools down in disgust.“Keep it down” you say, indicating the slumbering forms of Rainya and Lirael, who have long since dropped off, when they did you made sure to fetch them blankets and now they’re curled up a ways away down the corridor, as you and Dev work on the lock. Neither of them stir.“Sorry” says Dev in a quieter voice “But this damn thing is fighting back.”Indeed, it does seem that way. You’ve got the cover off, but any time you try to redirect power to trick the lock into thinking it has received the right code, it changes its own energy flows, sometimes it seems to defy the laws of physics to do so.A few changes are indicative of an AI protecting a lock, but this has been going on for 2 hours now.You extend your psychic senses, scanning it carefully, and then you have your answer “It’s psychically active” you whisper to Dev “I think someone used some sort of psychic power on this thing to make it unpickable.”“That would explain a lot” says Dev, nodding “So what now?”
Indeed, what now? It’s almost midnight, you need to be getting ready for the mission soon.>Keep trying to pick it>Break the door>Leave it, for now>This thing, I think I can beat it...somehow (Aspect: pick Impossibility or Corruption, may have side-effects)>Other (what?)old thread >>37923062

>>37928518>This thing, I think I can beat it...somehow (Aspect: pick Impossibility or Corruption, may have side-effects)Lets see what this does. Corruption.
>>37928518>This thing, I think I can beat it...somehow (Aspect: Corruption, may have side-effects)
>>37928518>Leave it, for now and get to the police station.
>>37928577Except there's literally no reason to do that.
Shouldn't we have Dev get away from us before we use our god power son a lock?
>>37928609Actually yeah there is, side-effects are stronger the higher the Aspect is.
>>37928628That's a reason to get the Aspect higher, not a reason to keep them even, and Impossibility's effects are better anyway.
>>37928518>>This thing, I think I can beat it...somehow (Aspect: pick Impossibility)Dev stand back a moment.
>>37928611Why would we? It makes no difference, we change the lock.
>>37928653Yeah when side effects are mentioned and we have him close to the target I get twitchy.
>>37928518We probably shouldn't use an aspect with everyone so nearby.
>>37928577>Implying that this increases the chosen Aspect>Implying you aren't just making the Willpower DC more difficult for no reason by choosing the weaker Aspect
>>37928518>This thing, I think I can beat it...somehow Aspect: Corruption
INB4 Dev gets changed because he was too close to the lock.
>>37928711Are you high?This is a Aspect choice, it ALWAYS increases the chosen Aspect. Thats the point.>>37928704We already did before. We can't bottle away our very nature from other people.
>>37928760>This is a Aspect choice, it ALWAYS increases the chosen Aspect. Thats the point.Previous Aspect-improving choices have been doing or saying things in-line with the Aspect, not actively trying to use the Aspect to override reality.
>>37928518>This thing, I think I can beat it...somehow (Aspect: pick Impossibility
>>37928805Actually, yes. Thats what they did.Our last Impossibility choice did exactly that.Doing things in-tune with them is exactly what heightens them.
>>37928820We didn't do anything in the vote with Rainya, and the point from killing Tom was a bonus after the fact. This is the first time we have actively used an aspect power, Dev should take cover.
I wonder if we could corrupt the whole facility at some point creating a safe haven for our "family."
ok, roll 2d20, both are will rolls.First is for this to work, 2nd is for side effects, high is good, low is bad
>>37928870>We didn't do anything in the vote with RainyaWe overrode reality to make it happen anon, in case you didn't get that.
Rolled 13, 16 = 29 (2d20)>>37928820>Our last Impossibility choice did exactly that.It didn't overwrite reality, we just felt like not having limits was more literal for us.>Doing things in-tune with them is exactly what heightens them.Yes, that's what I'm saying. Previous choices about Aspects stated that they'll enhance it, this is just saying we're going to use it actively, for the first time.>>37928895We didn't do anything of the sort.>>37928894

Rolled 8, 18 = 26 (2d20)>>37928894
>>37928907>We didn't do anything of the sort.I understood it too as Shee enabling Rainya by using her reality warping.
>>37928968Either you're wrong or the system is flawed due to having exponential gains of Aspect level and needs to be changed.
>>37928895Nope we just encouraged her we did nothing it just happened because she was around us. It was passive this isn't.
>>37928907>this is just saying we're going to use it actively, for the first timeWe already used it actively before, actually. Against the tile in the shower.And its the reason our joints can go backwards now.
>>37928984>Either you're wrong or the system is flawed due to having exponential gains of Aspect level and needs to be changed.No? Doing something in tune with our nature, increases it.When we use our Aspect to make the world more like we want, how aren't we acting in tune with our Aspect of making the world more like we want?
>>37929032If it would increase our Aspect, it would have been formatted as [Aspect +1].
>>37929032Yes, and the point in that is that we could just do things by using our aspect itself with it's power increasing each time until it hits the cap. It takes the point out of even having Aspect levels.
>>37928984Not really, there is just a difference between actively and passively doing it.We don't actively want to make our joints go backwards, but we do anyway because reality gets funky like that around us.So we did affect Rainya with our Impossibility back then.
>>37929086>Yes, and the point in that is that we could just do things by using our aspect itselfObviously we don't have free choice about when and how to use our Aspect. Otherwise it would have come up as option a lot more often.
“Dev go stand over there would you” you say to Dev “I’m going to try something and this might I dunno, melt, or explode.”“Ok” says Dev, retreating down the corridor as you place both hands on the lot and close your eyes in concentration.You focus on one of your core aspects, the parts of you that define your powers, what sort of Reunited you are, what sort of God you may become.You are Corruption, not in the sense of evil and bribery, but that the world around you bends to your will, it belongs to you, and things that belong to you change as you see fit, they do what you what them to do, they are what you want them to be.You’re not truly increasing the Aspect within you, you’re just making it work for you.The lock flashes maddeningly and you can feel it fighting you, you can feel something resisting you. In fact you can feel that there is definitely something controlling it, something actively resisting you.The lock finally gives up and a series of lights appear on the top, indicating that it is open.The doors creak a little and Dev says “Well done Shee you did it!” and then the doors stop, with barely the gap of a finger in between them. “Damn” says Dev in a disappointed tone.You resist the urge to scream, the lock is defeated but the doors seem jammed.You thump the wall in frustration, your fist leaving an imprint, even as you watch, the imprint on the wall fades. Oh right, yeah, the world around you conforming to your wishes. You try to keep your mind from wandering, just in case.You try looking through the tiny gap but you can’t see anything, damn interlocking doors!What now?>Keep trying (Corruption: lower DC to succeed as already used, warning, raises DC to avoid side effects)>Try something else (Impossibility)>Enough for now, come back later>Other (what?)

>>37929415No, stronger Aspects are more likely to have side-effects. We've been told that before.
>>37929193>>Other (what?)Close the door, we can come back later
>>37929431Stronger aspects have increased penalties, as in our anti-magic weakness. I don't recall anything about side effects.
Sorry to call for a follow-up but this is important as some players have combined Titan Form with Impossibility Aspect.You'll be going huge to pull the doors apart, but will you be using Impossibility too?>Y/N5 minute vote
>>37929455>NWhy take the risk prematurely?
>>37929453"Side-effects" are just our Aspect expressin itself more strongly.The stronger the Aspect, obviously the stronger it expresses itself.
>>37929506Instead of making assumptions, why don't you tell me where this was stated?OP would warn us if one of our Aspects had a significantly higher chance of side effects upon use.
no impossibility it is.Please roll 2d20, first for Enhance ability, second for strength check.And please vote on extra psychic energy used, average of first 3 votes will be used.

>>37929576I just realized Dev hasn't seen us hulk out yet.
>>37929734Now he will.I doubt it can still phase him by this point.
>>37929734Oh yeah. Well, too late now. We really need to have a talk with him about all of this soon.
>>37929814He already knows we got all kinds of weird as shit powers.But after telling him we're his family, he should be told about the Reunited gig.
You address the doors “You asked for this!” and then you start to grow, and grow, and grow.You grow two additional arms, you clothes fade away to be replaced by simple cloth wraps and your hair changes to a darker red and grows as your skin turns grey and stone-like.You dig you now thicker fingers into the tiny gap as Dev whistles in admiration, hah, maybe Rainya isn’t the only one who likes your new form.Then you start to pull the doors apart, muscles ripple and strain as you push with all your might, using your powers to dredge every little bit of strength from your new form.[PE 45/48]With a loud squeal the doors are forced back, motors burning out as they try to battle your strength. You open the doors to see row upon row of armoured suits, big ones, small ones, light armour suits, heavier ones, even personal-scale power armour. There are also huge bins full of force field generators. And in the middle of this large vault is a matte-black box with block protrusions, perhaps 8ft tall.Huh that is w weird-looking thing to keep in a place like thi-An invisible wave of energy picks you up and slams you into the wall opposite the doors, you know its a wave or ram of some kind because the doors you just part-opened bend out in your direction too.Even in your new form, that hurt.[HP 114/143]“Shee!” bellows Dev in a panic as Rainya and Lirael wake up, further down the corridor.What do you do?>Attack the box (hammer and fists)>Use power (What?)>Try talking to it (saying what?)>Other (what?)And Dev?>Attack the box (weapon?)>Wait>Other (what?)Rainya and Lirael are just waking up and can’t act this turn.

>>37929991There is no "Telepathy" power, that would be Mental Contact, which we don't have.
>>37930014oh well, drop that, try to talk to it.
Ohh.. do we have to try and smash it?? really? do we?I'm almost 100% certain thats a stupid course of actionThis Hulk thing we have going has got to stop at the physical level, no reason to get all stupid
>>37930014Sadly we aren't deep enough into artifice to use Domination on technology.
>>37930036Most of us are voting to try talking first, so stop whining.

“Stay back everyone” you bellow in that deep voice somewhere between sexy, and inhuman. Dev wisely stays back, and blocks Lirael and Rainya when they come rushing to your aid, still half-asleep.Could this be the hardware for the Teacher maybe?“Cadet Hyul” you say “Here to retrieve equipment.”A laser-like blast just appears before the box and shoots towards you, hitting you in the chest. You use your thick arms to shield yourself from the intense heat, but damn it still hurts![HP 105/143]The beam is sustained, continuing to burn you. Still, you can withstand it for now.Whatever it is, it’s not talking, just attacking, but what is it? If you could read minds maybe you could...wait, Lirael is with you now.Actions?>Lirael uses telepathy and talks to it>Gestalt with Lirael to talk to it>Smash it!>Other (what?)Dev and Rainya?>Wait>Do something (what?)Shadows of the Depths 2 it is

>>37930203Why does Shee think that she can communicate with it mentally at all?Isn't it normally impossible to use Telepathy on machines?
>>37930203>Gestalt with Lirael to talk to it
>>37930203>Leave it be for today, we have a mission to take care ofyeah whatever this is, its not urgent and worth it expending resources on right now.Who knows what happens if we talk to it.
>>37930275I don't think so. Being able to use Telepathy powers on machines was a big selling point of Artifice.
>>37930275Other anons have been voting to use telepathy, so I thought I'd include it as an option.Something I missed from my previous post though>You can sense powerful psychic energies coming from it.

>>37930321Thats a rather important bit then.
>>37930363I'd totally go with close the door if that is posibble
>>37930368true, and my apologiesvoting time extends 5 minutes from now in order to allow vote-switching.
>>37930203>Leave it be for today, we have a mission to take care ofMaybe we can shut it down if we can find this place's mainframe.
>>37930363The doors are bent outwards from that wave of force earlier, I doubt they can be forced closed at this point, assuming forcing them open in the first place wouldn't have prevented that already.
>>37930444Couldn't even open the doors due to it's low level.

>>37930461Abusing those powers could probably really fuck us over. We shouldn't just be throwing them around.
>>37930459We didn't even try opening the door with it.We used it to overcome the lock, and it did exactly that.
seems to be a tie between leave + close doors (kinda the same thing I guess) and Gestaltso going with leave + close doors.
>>37930489I was voting for it under the assumption it wouldn't be a loophole exploiting little shit when I try to get it to do something.
>>37930523Sounds okay. We might need that Psychic Energy tonight.
>>37930567What are you talking about?We tapplied it to the lock, it worked.The door then just also happened to be jammed, because we didn't use it on the door.
>>37930567The Door was being held shut by a psychic box. The Lock is Shee's now.
>>37930617You, you applied it to the lock. I wanted it to get access to the vault, I didn't care how it was done.If it's so weak it can't even affect the door the lock is attached to when access to the vault was clearly our will (to which it is supposed to respond), then I see no point in using it until it's stronger.
>>37930682You use it to make it stronger.
>>37930682Then you should have voted for that.But you didn't. So your just out of luck in that regard. >If it's so weak it can't even affect the doorIt can, we just didn't do that.
You stomp forwards as the beam continues to burn you and stretch out all of your arms, grab the bent doors and pull them together, blocking the doorway and shutting off the beam. Damn did that hurt though.[HP 89/143]“Shee are you ok?” asks Lirael, running up to you, as you resume your natural form and heal your burns.“I’m fine” you reassure her “I don’t know what that was, but...damn”“And speaking of damn” says Dev, giving you an approving grin “since when did you get so ripped Shee?”Rainya moves next to you and puts an arm around you as you say to Dev “Oh, it happened recently.”“That sounds like one hell of a story” says Dev“It is” you say “but for now, we need to get going, we need to be in place before the alarm at the archives goes off.”“Right you are” says Dev, packing up his tools.“Actually” you say to Dev “you’re not coming.”“What?” he says “Why not?”“This is going to be a stealth mission” you say, indicating his rather large form “and well, that’s not your biggest strength.”Dev opens his mouth to say something, pauses and then concedes “fair enough” he says “just tell me all about it tomorrow ok?”“Will do” you promise.---You, Rainya and Lirael are outside the police archives building, ready to go in. It’s just before 1am. The lights are out and there appears to be no guards at all present.The place is locked up however, and who knows what defences it has.

“Rainya” you whisper “one of you comes with me, the other says out here with Lirael on lookout, ok?”“Ok” Rainya whispers back as you approach the door. The lock here is both mechanical and electronic, requiring a physical key and a code. Not beyond your skills, but you will waste precious minutes getting in.You open the cover and start fooling the electronic lock into thinking you’ve entered the right code, only for it to hiss, spark, and die.The door you’re working on is now truly locked. This thing will need to be cut off. You curse under your breath. Time is passingWhat do you do?>Pick the lock on another door>Teleport in>Smash the door>Other (what?)

>Subtle Talent: Psychic Sense to check for wards and detections>Subtle Talent: Teleport if none found
>>37931377I'm worried they might have a ward that could still detect our presence even if the teleportation itself is hidden.
>>37931424I was about to say that could only be a thing if they were actively looking for a intruder.But with all the strangeness with Six and this mission, they might actually be.
ok, scan then teleport in subtlety it is
As Rainya waits at your side you take the time to scan the building for psychic influences, first making sure that your powers are undetectable and then you teleport in with Rainya, again after hiding your powers.Once inside you and Rainya head deep into the police archive building. You’ve love to carefully hack these machines and steal the data without anyone noticing, but you need to be out of here before the alarm system finishes rebooting, so you and Rainya simply pull hard-drives out of computers for later decoding. Once you have enough, you head to the basement, where Six said there was some special machine hidden.As you head down there you see a light on. You motion for Rainya to stay where she is and you creep down the stairs, quietly as you can. Peering through a crack in a partially open door you can see a room full of boxes, evidence storage room perhaps. In it there is an old Hiver man, maybe sixty or so, and behind him is a computer, sitting all alone in a corner.The old man is ticking off items on a list, opening boxes on after another, examining the contents, sometimes making notations, and then closing the box and moving on to the next one.

You are so agile and stealthy, that you cease to exist!Kidding, writing
>>37931827I have an idea, when we need to roll for a gift, you go first ok?
>>37931896I-I am not sure if I'm ready for this power. This responsibility, this pressure to perform. I should've never rolled that roll
>>37931988STEP UP ANON! TG NEEDS YOU!
>>37931988Just say what I say when my dice are hot.My luck is either very hot or very cold, with little middle ground. If you want me to roll for you fine but my luck will eventually turn sour. Hen the dice gods shall party on our corpse.Sadly this is entirely true of my luck.
You sneak into the room and whilst no more than a few feet from the old guy, you carefully open the computer behind him and slide out all of its hard drives, and without him noticing. You then close up the case and you head out. You wonder how often the computer is accessed, you theft might not even be noticed for several days.You and Rainya make it out of the building with over 2 minutes to spare and then you fetch Lirael so you can all head back to the Waystation, with your stolen harddrives all held securely in your dimensional arsenal.“What do you think is in them?” asks Rainya with a yawn, as Lirael heads to bed.“I don’t know” you say “but I expect we’ll find out, g’night Rainya.”“G’night Shee” says Rainya, with another yawn.---You look around you, all is dust town, in ruins, and underwater. The water is up to your waist. Looking around you see Kae standing on one of the larger piles of wreckage.“Shee I am so sorry” she says “I didn’t know about the police raid until after the fact, please forgive me.” She twists her hands together and looks at you uncertainly.How do you respond?>Nothing to forgive, you didn’t know>You could have stopped this! (anger)>We need to get into Quinns head, can you help me?>Other (what?)The fish and other things in the water start to circle around the wreckage Kae is on.Everything held in your dimensional arsenal is floating in the air around you.
>>37932086>Nothing to forgive, you didn’t know>We need to get into Quinns head, can you help me?
>>37932086>I want names.
>>37932086>Nothing to forgive, you didn’t know>We need to get into Quinns head, can you help me?If we get angry, I bet our ocean monsters would attack her.
>>37932086>Nothing to forgive, you didn’t know>We need to get into Quinns head, can you help me?>It's fine I know the real reason for the raid was for my head. I'll deal with it.
>>37932086>You could have stopped this! (anger)Might not be the best approach, but a sincere and realistic one maybe.>OtherWill you help catch who ever did this, he was after me
>>37932086>You could have stopped this! (anger)We have a right to be angry.
>>37932086>Nothing to forgive, you didn’t know>Can you kick up enough fuss to mack people think twice before trying shit like this again?>I think this was a cover to try and kill me
>>37932086>Nothing to forgive, you didn’t knowGuy in charge who ordered this sounded like a reunited too.
>>37932164God I'm stupid... Anger for Kae in here might not be wise
>>37932086>Jaochim Kulrathe, I want to know about him whatever you can find out, I believe he is a Reunited too>Nothing to forgive, you didn’t know>We need to get into Quinns head, can you help me?
>>37932086>Nothing to forgive, you didn’t know
“There’s nothing to forgive” you say to Kae “you didn’t know.”“I thought you’d be angry” she says, looking at you uncertainly.“I am” you say, as the sea creatures thrash in confirmation “but not at you, I think this was aimed at me, and I’ll deal with it.”“Oh” says Kae “ok, then why...?”“I need to get into Quinns head” you say “before we try anything else, offering him sanctuary, infiltrating a party with elder vamps, I think we should try reading his mind first.”“In his dreams you mean?” asks Kae “That’s, ah that’s complicated.”“You can’t take me with you, can you?” you say “I knew it, damn, sorry Kae I’ll have to find another-”Kae jumps down off the wreckage into the water “No it’s not that” she says “I can get you in, but if Quinn can’t tell anyone, that means someone one has protected the information, locked it up in his head.”“So what?” you say “He can’t speak it even in his dreams?”“No” says Kae “He will be able to say it in his dreams, because he won’t realise he’s talking to another person, he’ll think he’s talking to another part of his own mind, in a sense, going into his dreams might be the only way to get the information out of him without tripping whatever defences are protecting it.”“Ah good” you say “Can we go now? I mean, I expect Quinn will be asleep right?”“In order for this work” says Kae carefully “Quinn can’t suspect that his mind is being invaded, or he could wake up, or the traps in his head set to protect the vampires identity could be activated.”“What’re you saying?” you ask Kae“I’m saying” says Kae swallowing “That we have two options, either I get you in, and watch for the defences, but won’t be able to do much else – you’ll need to convince Quinn to tell you. Or, I can go in alone to get him to talk.”“Which has the better chance?” you ask.
“If I get you in” says Kae “I can watch for the defences, maybe warn you before they trigger, or slow them down if they do, but I’ll be so focused on that I can’t help you. Still I should be able to cover you. If I go in alone, I’ll be too busy talking to Quinn and pretending, to watch out, if only we had another telepath, but, anyway, it’s just us Shee.”“Alright” you say, mulling over the decision “I guess that-”“Wait” says Kae “there’s more, as I said, if Quinn realises we’re in there, it’s over, whoever is talking to him has to act....the way Quinn would expect us to act...in his dreams.”Oh...oh yuck!As you draw back with a disgusted expression Kae says “Yeah, it’s just that bad, so what do you want to do?”>Kae, you’re on your own>Alright, I’ll do it>Actually I might know another telepath... (mention Lirael specifically?)>We’ll try this another night>Other (what?)Also, tell her about Kulrathe?>Y/N
>>37932598>Alright, I’ll do itDo not get Lirael involved in this mess. She's had her head screwed with one too many times.
>>37932598Why can't we watch for the defenses?
>>37932598>>Actually I might know another telepath....I'll see if I can get them to agree (Ash or Lirael)>Y
>>37932598>Alright, I’ll do itWe should see him the night before he sleeps, that way it makes more sense if he dream about us.Also, tell her about Kulrathe?>Y
>>37932598>Could we move him out of head and in to another?
>>37932644Your telepathy skills aren't that great. But you can suggest it in-character if you want.
>>37932674The *I'll do it* option is about doing it now.Waiting until later is option 4
>>37932598>Actually I might know another telepath...>We watch for defences, while you pretend, you know him better than I do>Y
>>37932598>>Actually I might know another telepath...>>37932598>>Y
>>37932598>>37932689Sounds much better>You do it, I take care of the defenses, I have someone support me>Actually I might know another telepath..(Don't mentio Lirael specifically)
Do we really want to expose Lirael to a Fae in the dreamworld? It seems like a bad idea.
>>37932598>Alright, I’ll do it
>>37932760Thats why we go gestalt
>>37932598>>37932711Seconding this+>I will be a bit unusual then, don't worry about it
>>37932598>>37932711This sounds good to me.
We should be pretending. I mean are we the player character or not.Also Kae seems to know very little of human (or vampire) train of thought, she is less than ideal for this.
>>37932851She knows way more about vampires, and more importantly Quinn, then we do.She has seen him far more often.
ok, getting Lirael involved5 minute vote, are you going to wake Lirael up to do this tonight?>Y/NN assumes tomorrow night unless write-ins request otherwise.
>>37932883>YSorry little biter, but we need this done
If we bring Lirael in I want to start with "I need to know I can trust you with this"Kae had a very close friendship with a human in the past and making her opt in as part of our family/friends could be a great boon.
>>37932880Yeah, but she seems quite oblivious as how to act or what is normal in club life setting. I assume this extends to other human train of thoughts too
>>37932883>NBetter we ask Ashley after a few pointers for Kae, before doing it, actually.Optimally she can pretend to be his sister.
>>37932883>NWe can prepare her for it tomorrowAlso back this.>>37932915
>>37932883>NThis seems like a bad idea but whatever
>>37932929Yeah, but Quinn isn't human.And she is definitly more familiar with vampires than Shee is.
>>37932915>>37932883Sure. I support this
ok writingOooooh boy....
Well that's ominous.
>>37933058Eh, there isn't really a 'good' option here.We need her help to make this work, because Shee can't really hope to pull that off.The gestalt should make it impossible to pick Lirael out, and even if it doesn't, I'm perfectly willing to break whoevers mind we have to when it comes to her.
>>37933028Should I be scared now I am scared
>>37933058Maybe we shouldn't have endangered Lirael by dragging her into this? Maaaybe?
As you think about what to tell Kae you change the topic “The task force captain” you say Kulrathe, I think he’s Reunited like me, and I think he came after me specifically for that reason.”Kae looks disbelieving for a moment and then nods, saying “right, I’ll have him looked at.”“Thanks” you say “How about we try this instead, I know another telepath, if I get them involved we can watch for defences, whilst you talk Quinn into giving up the name?”“Yeah” says Kae “Yeah I can do that, I think.”“Alright” you say “Let’s meet up tomorrow night ok?” “Sure” says Kae“One thing” you say “Is there any way we could, I dunno, take Quinn out of his own Dream Realm or something?”“It can be done” says Kae “but its a pretty powerful spell, I’d need a couple of months to prepare it.”“Ah ok” you say “just a thought, look Kae, about this other telepath, I need to know, can I trust you to keep a secret?”“Of course” she says “Why?”>Tell her about Lirael>You’ll see tomorrow>Other (what?)
>>37932935>>37932992Glad I'm not alone, would "This isn't my secret to tell but I'ld like to be able to share things with you, I just need to know how far I can go." be better?
>>37933119>Tell her about LiraelOK ignore.>>37933126
>>37933119>You’ll see tomorrow, provided I can get her to agree.
>>37933119>You’ll see tomorrow>Hopefully you won't 'see' it in any case
>>37933119>Tell her about LiraelSure, it was onlt the vampire that didn't like this breed right?
>>37933119>You’ll see tomorrow
>>37933119>...nevermind. I'll see you tomorrow night.
>>37933119>>Tell her about LiraelSometimes I wonder if Kae can pick up how quick we are growing in 'power'>>37933164I think anyone who does shit to mundanes don't like this breed.
>>37933119>You’ll see tomorrow>We'll talk tomorrow, I still need to talk to that telepath
>>37933164She was being kept as a pet by a Fae lord, so that'd be an issue.
>>37933164I wouldn't rely on it, there is a good reason we haven't asked Kae after her parents yet.
Does Royal Dominion apply to the gestalt?
>>37933210Not just any Fae lord, the king of this planet's court.
>>37933164She was probably Kae's fathers pet cat or bird or some shit.She was ferral when we found her.
>>37933164>Sure, it was onlt the vampire that didn't like this breed right?The other issue is how Lirael likes Kae.>>37933119Seconding>>37933192
>>37933227Yeah, I knew it was a bigwig, thought it was the king wasn't sure though.
Can we ask about the magic farm?
>>37933249can if you wantAsk about chaoswell at the same time?>Y/N5 minute vote
>>37933210She was actually not ever kept by them, she got lost before arriving.We don't know how exactly she did escape.>>37933279>N
>>37933279>NToo many questions.
>>37933279>NNo reason tying us to that yet
>>37933279>NThat would be awfully suspicious if we do end up attacking it.
Pally, how long to you intend to keep going tonight?
>>37930838I want to make a FedEx joke
>>3793333230-60 minutessee you tomorrow + no questions about chaoswell it is
>>37933126Hopefully we don't have to reveal anything.Liraels Illusion mod combined with Shees will, makes it very unlikely Kae could see through any illusion we put up, even if Liraels actual form shines through in the gestalt.
Guys, isn't it dangerous to introduce Lirael to Kae?
>>37933400Which is why we're asking Lirael about it first and not doing it tonight. If Ash had leveled up his vampiric command powers we wouldn't even need Lirael. Sadly he's been twiddling his thumbs on that front.
>>37933400Everyone knows it is, it has been mentioned several times.Thats why we are trying to find a way not to.Like using the gestalt.
>>37933400Yes. Why the vote went for bringing her bugs the shit out of me.
>>37933400I'd really rather not take the chance right now. Especially in the dream world but, that's what we're doing.
>>37933318As the one Yes vote I wasn't planning on attacking the place that wants to make food. I want to find out if Kae is trying to grow food for the dusters.>>37933389>Hopefully we don't have to reveal anything.Hopefully we can show Kae what life is like and how it needs to change.
“You’ll see tomorrow” you say “I think, I still need to convince the other telepath to join me”“Ok” says Kae “just go to sleep in the same room or close by ok, otherwise I might not be able to find them.”“Not a problem” you assure Kae.---You wake up the next morning feeling a little tired, that was a late night and too much dreaming means not enough sleeping.What is the plan for today?Shee's To Do List:1. Make contacts to sell the guns.2. Activate psychic power (this pleases Jagganatha)3. Talk to Garrax (reunited)4. Talk to Ash5. Talk to Yonsul6. Seek the favour of one of the Five (which?)7. Explore the research facility (looking for what?)8. Contact the Rebellion about a mission>Or something else?Or even>Nothing important today (skips to tomorrow evening, conversation with Lirael then meeting Kae)
>>37933433>>37933453Why not just seduce Quinn in his dream word?
>>37933469Because fuck that guy. That's why.
>>37933469Because we have no idea how to do that, not to mention the chances that Quinn would be telling DreamShee anything are basically nil.>>37933467>4. Talk to Ash
>>37933467>Nothing important today (skips to tomorrow evening, conversation with Lirael then meeting Kae)
>>37933467>8. Contact the Rebellion about a missionAsk where to drop off the stuff.or>4. Talk to Ashfor obvious upcoming reasons.
>>37933467>Practice what we're going to be doing in the dreamworld with Lirael. Try to mask her true form while we're the gestalt.
>>37933490Hmm, I think we could try recreating the night we got the info about the enslavement camp and slightly alter it.Dreams can be cryptic as well, few times they are what people want them to be like.
>>37933469Because that would mean relying on either Quinn being willing to tell Shee anything, or Shees ability to impersonate Ashley/Quinns Sister, both things that we really can't pull off.It would also mean relying on Kae for our actual safety, which yeah no.
>>37933469I'm all for thatFlirting a bit with him the same evening won't hurt
>>37933481Glad to see we are in agreement, anon.
>>37933467See if we can gesult with lireal and find out more on that thing guarding the armory?>Practice what we're going to be doing in the dreamworld with Lirael. Try to mask her true form while we're the gestalt.
>>37933467>Talk to Ash>Try to hack the research facility.
>>37933527That would require heavy use of Illusions which we also can't reliably ppull off in Oneira, Kae can.Again another reason why she is better for this.
>>37933467Cautiously >Talk to Lirael aboutt he plan>Practice what we're going to be doing in the dreamworld with Lirael. Try to mask her true form while we're the gestalt>>37933567Can we even enter the dreamworld together with Lirael?Can we go asleep as gestalt?Pally?
>>37933469Because he's awful and I can't wait for the elder vampire to rip his throat out.
>>37933619>Can we even enter the dreamworld together with Lirael?>Can we go asleep as gestalt?>Pally?You'll find out
Ash it is, writing
>>37933710I'm counting 3Ash 4 Lirael, actually?Am I off?
>>37933747No, its you're correct 3Ash/4Lirael.Someone deleted his vote, maybe thats the confusion?
>>37933747That's what I got.
>>37933710Yeah this guy is right >>37933747
>>37933747>>37933777my mistake, thanks for spotting.
I'm in favor of telling Kae up front about Lirael so she won't feel hurt if she finds out, also if we give her a secret she'll feel she opted in to keeping it but if she finds out on her own she might queston what else we're keeping from her.

>>37933826Kaes reaction to Lirael is however completly unpredictable to us, and may end very badly.More important then kaes reaction however, is Liraels opinion on the matter.
>>37933826Not every person we know needs to know all our secrets. We have no idea how she'll react to someone like Lirael either.
>>37933875>>37933897That's what the "Can you keep a secret" thing was for but I agree about Liraer getting the final say.
You rise and enjoy a leisurely breakfast with your friends, and once Dev has left you ask Rainya for some privacy and sit down with Lirael, who looks a little unsure.“Lirael” you say “I’m going to helping Kae get information out of Quinn, whilst she is asking him questions, I’ll be watching in case Quinns mind is protected against intrusion. To do that I want you to help me, we’ll need to link minds, because my own powers are...still developing. Are you ok with that?”“Uh sure” says Lirael with a smile, her nervousness growing more pronounced “If there’s no other way, is there another way?”Hmmm.....“And” you say, “I need to find some way to hide your identity from Kae whilst we link minds, do you think you can do that?”“Actually I think this might be a bad idea” says Lirael “Are you sure you can’t do this on your own?”Something’s not right here, how do you respond?>Let’s practise the gestalt now>What are you hiding Lirael?>Ok, I’ll do this alone>Other (what?)
>>37933990>What are you hiding Lirael?>If you aren't comfortable with it, just say so, and we don't do itHow would she hide anything from us, anyway?
>>37933990>>Other (what?)Do you know Kae Lireal?
>>37933990>What are you hiding Lirael?>If you aren't comfortable with it, just say so, and we don't do itI'm not going to force you to do something you don't want to do.
>>37933990>What are you hiding Lirael?...It better not be what I think it is, or she gets her first spanking>>37934032We would know if she does, gestalt, remember? We know everything she knows.
>>37933990>Ok, I’ll do this alone>What are you hiding Lirael?
>>37933990>Ok, I’ll do this aloneShe's hiding her own exist, geniuses.
>>37933990>What are you hiding Lirael?She gave Rainya the B, didn't she.
>>37933990>If you aren't comfortable with it, just say so, and we don't do it>What are you hiding Lirael?
>>37933990>What are you hiding Lirael?She's nervous about it more from the gestalt and us finding out whatever she's hiding.
>>37933990>If you don't want to, okay>What are you hiding Lirael?
>>37934050No, it's mroe likely she doesn't want to be discovered by a fae.
>>37933990Oh no you didn't you little beast!...RainyaHow long has it been since we fed her?
>>37934078probably but I find my reason to be more funny.
>>37934109Why would they hide it though? I would think especially Lirael would feel comfortable coming to Shee with anything.
>>37934140We explicitly told her not too.But It wouldn't surprise me if it was really Rainya that was curious.
>>37934140Lirael and Rainya would definitly feel bad about it after we explicitly told them not to.I'm not going to assume thats the issue, since other things are possible and its not really like Lirael to do something like that against Shees wishes.But its definitly a possibility.
I actually hope Lirael fed from Rainya. That at least means we can let other vampires bite Shee.
>>37934226Why would we wish such an addiction on our loved one(s)?
>>37934226I don't want Rainya to fall down the addiction spiral though. Don't want more people getting needlessly addicted.
>>37934226No, it wouldn't mean that at all.
>>37934216This sounds more like embarrassment then other sorts of panic maybe.
>>37934226...why would it mean that? I at least have no intemtion of ever voting to allow that to happen.
>>37934226Not really, feeder-vampire relationships don't work that way. A normal vampire needs about six different feeders to stay well-fed without risking the health of any of his feeders.I'd vote against it anyway, simply because I know your reasoning for wanting such a thing and hate you for it.
>>37934226Forget it.Not gonna happen.If they made a mistake like that we're going to be rightfully angry at them, but that has nothing to do with it.
>>37934267Personally, I don't like the idea of being someone's harem. Secondly, being an exclusie feeder, but the relationship not being reciprocated leaves a very sour taste in my mouth. feels abusive, even.
>>37934226I am indifferent, however a lot of the quest is on the hell no opinion.There would have to be another vampire that has to earn that position and as of yet none potentially are close.
>>37934278Shee is stronger than six feeders, though.
>>37934304She is eleven anon.We are not in her harem. And thats not how Feeder/vamp relationships work. Its normal to have several Feeder, its kinda hard to overcome that kind of ingrained attitude.
>>37934304They aren't part of her 'harem'. They're like parents to her.
>>37934304>I don't like the idea of being someone's haremWe aren't, it's not sexual.>being an exclusie feeder, but the relationship not being reciprocated leaves a very sour taste in my mouthThat's not what exclusive feeder means.>>37934342That doesn't mean that her exclusive feeder relationship with Lirael is established as any different from the norm. If you want it to be, vote to tell her that.
>>37934364I don't see parents, maybe big sister, little sister?
>>37934388Nah, definitly parents.Thats pretty clearly the tone of that relationship.Why do you think she was so chipper about Rainya and Shee getting together?
>>37934388Then you need your eyes checked. Shee's clearly a mother figure.
>>37934364She is too oddly possessive of Shee for this to be a traditional parent-child relationship
>>37934424...Wat?You think possessivness towards people they cherish a lot is unsual in little girls?Have you never met a little girl in your life?
>>37934424There is nothing odd about that, even just looking at the mother-figure part.In addition to the cultural baggage around the Feeder thing, its not odd at all.
>>37934424Your mom doesn't want to feed you dinner. She wants to head down the street and feed those kids.
>>37934467>You think possessivness towards people they cherish a lot is unsual in people?Fixed
>>37934513True, but its especially true for little children, and especially girls.
You give Lirael a compassionate look “If you don’t want to do this” you say “just say so, and we won’t”Lirael looks relieved “Ah yes, that’s it” she says “I don’t want to do this, Kae uh scares me, I mean, what if she remembers me from the fae court or whatever?”She’s lying....“Lirael” you say as she gets out of her chair and heads for the door “what are you hiding?”“Nothing!” she insists.“Lirael the truth please” you say.“Oh alright” she says in a dejected tone, and then you feel the touch of her mind on your own, you let her in, seems she wants to show you rather than tell you.Images flash before your eyes, Lirael and Rainya together, and all the time you weren’t around, Lirael reading Rainyas mind, specifically about Rainya feels about you. In their time together, Lirael has been trying to talk Rainya into pushing you to move your relationship faster.You feel a moment of panic, was your whole relationship with Rainya Liraels doing, no wait. Lirael assures you that it only started *after* your late night chat that Lirael witnessed, but ever since then the sneaky little minx has been trying to get Rainya closer to you. The connection breaks.“Why?” you ask Lirael, who looks miserable.“I miss my family” she says, sitting down “I really like you Shee, but you have to go off and do” she waves her hands “adult stuff a lot, I want, I want more someone else too, someone to talk to, someone more to be my feeder, besides” she adds “I think you and Rainya would be great together, and Rainya likes” Lirael looks for the right words “weird stuff, I think she’d be fine with it.”“I feed you” you point out “I feed you often that you never need to be hungry.”“I know, I know” Lirael assures you “But feeding isn’t just hunger Shee it’s....more.”
You kinda know what she’s saying, the pleasure, the closeness, it triggers the same emotional responses in people as romance, no wonder so many vampires combine *feeder* with *lover*. Your own relationship with Lirael is more big sister than anything, but you get the concept. You recall that travelling a lot, Lirael hasn’t had really had a long term feeder, and now she has you, perhaps she’s getting greedy, or is wanting to be like other vampires, who typically have several feeders.How do you respond?>You can’t do that to people! (get angry)>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>I’ll talk to Rainya about being your feeder>I’ll be your only feeder for now, and I’ll try to spend more time with you>Can you help me and Rainya get together? (this pleases Baalzamon)>Other (what?)Options 1 & 2 are exclusive of each other, and options 3 & 4 are exclusive of each other. Apart from that, go nuts.----And thread ends there, please vote on this last option, it will form the next OP.Next thread will be Tuesday at noon BST. 1 hour Twitter warning as standard.For your actions today you gain 5XP
>>37934671>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>I’ll be your only feeder for now, and I’ll try to spend more time with you
>>37934671>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>I’ll talk to Rainya about being your feeder
>>37934671>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>I’ll talk to Rainya about being your feederOnce we get a little closer, okay? But it has to happen on Rainya and my terms. No interfering.
>>37934671>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>I’ll be your only feeder for now, and I’ll try to spend more time with youEmphasis that you can't just stop being a feeder, if Rainya starts its a long term thing.
>>37934671>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>Lirael, you have to understand. Being a Feeder is a addiction, yes it is pleasant, but its also a vulnerability. Its never nice to feel helpless and dependant, I trust you Lirael, but I don't want that for Rainya. Maybe, some time. Not now.As I understood it, she didn't really do anything except, coupling, which isn't exactly a terrible thing worth being angry about
>>37934671>I’ll talk to Rainya about being your feederLet rainya decide it.
I like your Answer>>37934776Better than mine>>37934749
>>37934671>>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>>I’ll be your only feeder for now, and I’ll try to spend more time with youYour going to make Rainya addicted to you like a drug. Little Girl drug.
>>37934671>I’ll be your only feeder for now, and I’ll try to spend more time with you
>>37934671>“I think you and Rainya would be great together, and Rainya likes” Lirael looks for the right words “weird stuff, I think she’d be fine with it.”We kinda knew that. Rainya is almost straight from /d/>>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>>I’ll talk to Rainya about being your feederLet Rainya decide it, the risks involved also.
>>37934816So we got 5 bonus xp for bad puns and other stuff, and 5 more for the thread itself.
>>37934671>You can’t do that to people! (get angry)
>>37934671Make it clear Shee does it because she cares about Lirael, but it's an addiction too. A strong one, and that's something she doesn't want to inflict on Rainya.
>>37934671>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>Lirael, you have to understand. Being a Feeder is a addiction, yes it is pleasant, but its also a vulnerability. Its never nice to feel helpless and dependant, I trust you Lirael, but I don't want that for Rainya. Maybe, some time. Not now.
>>37934671>>37934776adding this>Make it clear Shee does it because she cares about Lirael, but it's an addiction too. A strong one, and that's something she doesn't want to inflict on Rainya.
>>37934671>>37934857Forgot my selections.>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>I’ll be your only feeder for now, and I’ll try to spend more time with you
>>37934671>I’m not angry Lirael, but it has to stop>I’ll be your only feeder for now, and I’ll try to spend more time with you>Make it clear Shee does it because she cares about Lirael, but it's an addiction too. A strong one, and that's something she doesn't want to inflict on Rainya.>>37934798>Your going to make Rainya addicted to you like a drug. Little Girl drug.That made me laugh.
>>37934848Only 5Xp, since we spend the other 5 on SoTD2.
>>37934857Not to mention Rainya can't recover from it as fast as Shee and with how dangerous all their lives are that's a serious problem.
>>37934949Maybe we could train Rainya in healing abilities. Hell worst case scenario corruption could give her that ability maybe.
>>37934949I'm more worried about some vampire trying to take advantage of Rainya's addiction, which isn't really a problem for Shee due to her Willpower.
>>37934949On the other hand if anything happens to Shee then Lirael has no feeders.
>>37934949Thats not really an issue, since we would be healing up Rainya too then.The addiction part is the problem. At this point, its not clear if Rainya and Shee even works out, and then how long Lirael is even going to stay with them. One day Lirael might leave, and whats Rainya gonna do then?
>>37935003On the third hand, Shee will be getting a power that lets her not die when she's killed sometime soon.
>>37935003If something happens to Shee, Lirael has worse problems, and then Rainya would still offer herself, really.
>>37935003Well if that happened I'm sure Rainya would gladly take over that responsibility.
>>37935003That's probably the only case where it's ok. As long as she knows the risks she can feed, but only as an emergancy
>>37935004>One day Lirael might leave, and whats Rainya gonna do then?Well, Feast of Lifes higher levels gets us fangs too...
ok, next op will be no anger, and telling Lirael you'll be her only feeder, but nicely.
>>37935069Hey, question, we have been using Sweetblood every time we feed Lirael, right?
>>37935069Mind telling us if Feast of Life's fangs come with pleasent feeding?And how often do you need to get bitten before addiction starts?
>>37935094>Hey, question, we have been using Sweetblood every time we feed Lirael, right?Yes>>37935102>Mind telling us if Feast of Life's fangs come with pleasent feeding?Not to start with, but it can be purchased>And how often do you need to get bitten before addiction starts?Will roll based, takes a few weeks of regular feedings before you start rolling.In theory feedings could be spread out enough that a roll need not be made, but who knows what the *safe* number of feedings/week is.
>>37935163Catch you Tuesday, thanks for running
>>37935163Ah, so if she needs to feed in an emergency it's ok. But don't make a habit. Defiantly need to tell Rainya that so it is ok.
>>37935163Thanks for the answers, and thanks for running.See you tuesday.
>>37935163Would you mind giving a few teasers for Impossibility powers or something about how it's going to change our gifts?When is that process going to start, anyway?
>>37935248>teasersYou asked for this.Please note that these are DRAFT IDEAS ONLY and may be modified, or not show up at all.Blood ControlImpossibility: When you receive any healing effect, any of your blood you have on you or your clothes retreats back into the wound, sealing it closed.Limbs UnrivalledImpossibility: All of your limb joints can bend in any direction.Oceanic DreamImpossibility: Many of the creatures in your dream realm appear unnatural – odd shapes and sizes and combinations of animals. Invaders to your dream realm take double the usual penalties from Aspect of Impossibility.TentaclesImpossibility: Your tentacles no longer emerge just from your back – you can extend them from anywhere on your body.MightImpossibility: You can exert all of your strength with only the tiniest part of your body, and only the tiniest movement. With just a flick of a finger, a jab of an elbow or a head-butt, you deliver the entire force of your supernatural Strength. This does not necessarily change your unarmed combat style, it is quite intimidating when you can simply poke a building and cause an entire wall to crumble. While this does not increase your damage output, it means that even when bound or restricted from moving in some way, you can still bring all of your Champion Strength to bear in an attack. Your damage output and ability to lift are not impinged in any way when you are forced to rely only on a single limb, a part of your body or a restricted range of motion. You are impossible to restrain unless completely immobilised or paralysed.DurabilityImpossibility: Severed limbs will crawl back to you and reattach themselves. ArtificeImpossibility: You begin to exhibit mechanical features, like natural cybernetics.
>>37935323CharismaImpossibility: Your body begins to change shape to match the ideal of whoever you’re talking to. Fortunately these changes are so slow that they’re unnoticed unless you spend a long time in a person’s company. When you’re alone your body quickly resumes its baseline form.As for when, all I can say is *soon*. I have a lot of stuff to write tomorrow
>>37935323TentaclesHave fun with that Rainya...
>>37935342>>37935323I had a feeling we were going somewhere along these lines. I don't even dare think about the corruption pathAre there any way we can stay.. human-like? (Both in appearance but also in mind)
>>37935342I want this just to see what Lirael or Rainya would really want Shee to look like.
>>37935342These ideas are great. I thought we already had Limb Unrivalled we bent our hand into a backwards fist. The second level, could be any of our body parts are bendable at will.
>>37935474If we even want to that is. I do, but that decision is not mine to make of cause
>>37935489That was when we first broke reality before it forced us back into thinking things should work a certain way.
>>37935474Would be nice externally, we can focus internally so our insides are just not right/ too much inside for our small frame.
>>37935474I think we'll always look Semi-human. It's the template we started with. Most of the gods even look a bit human.Our mind.. will probably stray from the course a bit just due to the ability to do impossible things and bend reality to our will.
>>37935563Yeah... I'm afraid it going to be forced down some unfortunate paths. Something along the lines we had when discussing the unwilling corruption of those around us Because that is going to happen if we are not carefulAnd if you can "suddenly" grow cybernetics, I am left to wonder in what strange ways our mind might grow
>>37935474I doubt it. Unless we take on other aspects that counter the nature of those two.
>>37935474Mind doesn't actually change much as a result of Aspect advancement, as far as I can recall. It won't be *quite* human, but close enough. The important bits, at any rate.Remember that Corruption isn't evil and might actually have less monstrous transformations than Impossibility since Impossibility is Eldritch Horror-lite while Corruption is more normal reality warping.Also keep in mind that these are just the Gift changes. Impossibility's powers are another beast entirely.>>37935641>Because that is going to happen if we are not carefulWe'll get a warning if it does start, and then we just get the peripheral to shoot cancer-lasers.I wasn't joking about that.
>>37935658Like family and hope(or something similar?)
>>37935477>what Rainyas ideal Shee looks like.Tentacle-muscle-goo-girl?
>>37935679 I really wish those were our current aspects.
>>37935679Yes, taking a *good* aspect might be something you should do.Currently both of Shee's aspects are in the *evil* spectrum.>>37935477>LiraelProbably closer to her mother but still definitely Shee.
>>37935754You and me both. Okay, I have to admit I quite like impossibility>>37935676I don't think either corruption or impossibility are evil or even necessarily bad.I am not sure I get you cancer-laser reference?
>>37935838>I don't think either corruption or impossibility are evil or even necessarily bad.Oh, they aren't, not really. They can definitely be used for good ends, but they're still technically in the *evil* spectrum, albeit leaning more towards neutral.>I am not sure I get you cancer-laser reference?It's a hypothetical Corruption power that shoots cancer-lasers and is tied to better control of our corruptive aura. The lasers would deal CON and Unholy damage at lowers levels and warp people('s corpses, since it still kills the brain) into short-lived Abberant minions at higher levels. A side effect of the enhanced aura control is that we wouldn't subconsciously warp people if that ever does become a part of the Aspect, though I don't think it will be.
>>37935929You seem to know more than me (us) about whats in the cards, are you in close contact with Pally, Autism anon?
>>37935929Almost all the powers we get from the 5 fall pretty close to classic evil powers.It appears that some NPC's love the use so much and are willing to do almost anything to gain favor.For us, in the end it depends how we use them.
>>37936052The five are Yozi expies so what do you expect from nascent green sun princes?
>>37936092Well, obviously the police officer is a bit on direct command and brute force. He seems to fail to understand that a heavy precise strike is much more effective a lot of the time to achieve the goal.Then again he was never a beat cop, unlike best girl so he fails those important parts of anti-terrorist work and crime suppression.The rebellion seems closer to violent terrorists, compared to freedom fighters as led by the current leadership.
>>37936022Yeah, I hope that isn't upsetting to you. I provide feedback, design powers/peripherals and help flesh out mechanics. I usually don't have any real plot spoilers if that makes any difference, though I did know about aspects a few threads in advance and played a role in the development of their system.The cancer lasers are less something that's definitely in the cards and more a power idea that I had for Corruption a while ago which I am probably going to write up fairly soon.>>37936052Pretty much.>>37936150The Five all bear some similarities to five of the Yozi, imprisoned primordial beings from Exalted.
>>37936150Have Have you ever played Exalted? I haven't and I can still see it. Yozi are primordial gods trapped in hell who have green sun princes as their mortal servants. Each of the Five are very close to the five yozi who use such servants.>>37936155Police commander got as far as he did abusing his commands power and sacrificing people, His grasp of tactics is likely shit unless he has massive reserves to call upon.I would not be surprised if the rebellion leadership was compromised of bitter, old men, and Jaggie worshippers.
>>37936177no no, no upsetting here, just curious and a wee bit envy
>>37936177>Yeah, I hope that isn't upsetting to you. I provide feedback, design powers/peripherals and help flesh out mechanics. I usually don't have any real plot spoilers if that makes any difference, though I did know about aspects a few threads in advance and played a role in the development of their system.That is fine to me, the system is a lot to manage for 1 person. Especially how we keep adding powers.Any plans for more vehicle combat related feats? We now have sky cycles, which we need to play in the sims with. We should totally do that to blow off some steam.I hope that we can also fine true man sized powered armor. Be more useful for Dev in a lot of situations.>>37936242>I would not be surprised if the rebellion leadership was compromised of bitter, old men, and Jaggie worshippers.Bitter old men who just want to hurt someone. People like Dev either die or leave.
>>37936271>Bitter old men who just want to hurt someone. People like Dev either die or leave.Yup or get taken in and broken to the Fae and used against the resistance.
>>37936324I just wonder what we can do about it, what we as the players and Shee see as goals and what the rebellion wants to do are two different things. Shee's whole group is getting annoyed at the crap the rebellion is pulling it looks like.Charon was gun ho for killing some juvie fae, for pay back. That had very little return.Six wanted to blow up an archive? Stealing the data did not even enter his mind.Most of the info in there is minor, just hope the disconnected system has some good info.
Is it just me or was it pretty obvious that Pally was trying to hold back a little on the whole 'enormous war stash and infinite money' and people not respecting that at all? I can totally see why Pally would want to do so for a while, from a literary and QM perspective.Did people not see it or am I seeing things that aren't there?
>>37936404Honestly we need to rank up as a leader by doing awesome beneficial shit and replace Six when he invariably bites it due to stupidity. Then rinse and repeat til we either get a good leader over us or lead the resistance.
>>37936439Kinda. I know I have been pushing for armor, due to how squishy Rainya was in the 2 recent big fights she was involved in. The Serec and the mirror mage.Now she is packing much higher hp and durability.We could buy some, if we had funds. We have been slacking off selling stuff however.
>>37936439I saw it too, but considering this place is a minor forge for warmachines in addition to a psy facility and training ground. Pally really shot himself in the foot giving us a military cache base. We get the power supply up or fixed the resistance just got a hidden fortress of fucking the fae's shit in.
>>37936271>Any plans for more vehicle combat related feats?None of my own, but that reminds me that I need to make a close-range ranged feat.I'll try and give some thought to it, at least, but I've got about twenty other things I need to work on.>I hope that we can also fine true man sized powered armor.That manufactory in the facility might be able to construct larger mechsuits, should you procure the appropriate resources and manage to get it back online. There's also all those upgrade books that we bought.>>37936266>no upsetting hereGood, It's one of my greatest fears that my extra-session activities would seriously upset someone.
>>37936524>That manufactory in the facility might be able to construct larger mechsuits, should you procure the appropriate resources and manage to get it back online. There's also all those upgrade books that we bought.Probably, just have a bunch of other stuff to do. Now that Dev has some training, once we sell off some stuff simply hiring him as a mechanic might work.>>37936522>I saw it too, but considering this place is a minor forge for warmachines in addition to a psy facility and training ground. Pally really shot himself in the foot giving us a military cache base. We get the power supply up or fixed the resistance just got a hidden fortress of fucking the fae's shit in.The other thing could be is that Pally decided we needed this stuff eventually for reasons.We have not done too well picking up more allies though.
>>37936522Which is cool and stuff, but lets do it all in good time with the right pacing, is allLets try to play along when he tries to subtly hint us, I think this armour situation was.. unfortunate. I trust in based Pally.
>>37936597Yeah well We either need To rally more dusters to us or get more of our friends contacts on our side.>>37936602Honestly weapons are more dangerous than armor, I'd have thought weapon have a better lock, but whatever.
>>37936524The sheer amount of work you both have done and the walls of text you have amassed is awesome to behold, but holly molly do I not enjoy reading those unformatted pastebin-text Which is why I have read prolly only half of it
>>37936669I think the lock was more a question of Pally telling us that we should take a few moments to deal with what we already had rather than amass even more stuff for the stock pile. Could be wrong
>>37936669We'll, we are playing Shee a bit more considerate and not using a straight path to power.If we wanted straight followers there were tools offered to guard our existence and ensure our loyalty.We are closer to ichor in style other then king of hell.We will lead but we don't intimidate or coerce people. We want to earn their trust.
>>37936880We really need Dev, Rainya or ourselves recruiting people though. We need more operatives.
>>37936942Would be a good mission to recruit all the dusters to lead them against the police force.
>>37936983Not even all of them just some. Let them work as normal, and nobody notices them.
>>37936983By police force I hope you mean that one squad lead by Captain Douchebag.And by all the dusters I hope you mean a significant amount but nowhere near all of them and keeping our recruitment quiet.Because there are a lot of dusters, and quite a number of good officers on the force.
>>37937072>>37937121Yes sorry right on all counts,
>>37936983Nah, this is better. >>37937072Recruit them, cherry pick the best to be in our group and just gather info through them.We need useful leads most.If we go down the rebel path.Or we end up splitting off from the rebels. Have a lot on our plate.
We need one of us to really rank up fel for recruiting. Any ideas on who? Obviously Lirael is a no go.
>>37937121>>37936983I would like to keep our cards close and opperation small. But thats just a preferanceBesided, whats going to happen when the figure out or are told that it all happened because of a vendeta for us. No good things im sure
>>37937235Not saying we take them to our secret base, but having them keep an eye out for us would be good. Give us juicy leads and all.
>>37937235>I would like to keep our cards close and opperation small. But thats just a preferanceI do think we need 1 or 2 additional operatives that can specialize in other directions from Shee.Enlisting more informants would be really useful though, just don't need much in the way of contact that way.I doubt we can fully trust the info we get from Six.
>>37937471Agreed he seems pretty damn shady, and we need more eyes and ears in our hive.
