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“I’m going to stay at the facility tonight with Kae” you say.“Oh...” says Rainya “Ok, I guess...”“But I might get lonely” you say teasingly “Big empty facility, with just me in my lonely vigil over a hurt friend. All alone.”As Rainya giggles you say “So can I come and pick you up? And Lirael?”“Sure” says Rainya, her voice full of mirth.You add “We might need to keep Lirael away from her for now, no clue how those two will react to one another.”“Yeah” agrees Rainya “You can’t do that forever though.”“Probably not” you agree “But I don’t want to introduce them whilst one is injured, get yourself and Lirael ready ok, I’m going to try something with Kae, maybe, and I’ll be there in a few minutes.”“Ok” says Rainya, takes a breath as if she wants to say something more, pauses, then hangs up.Weird.“Will psychically accelerated healing harm her?” you ask the program. It pauses and then says “Unlikely.”Good enough, you put your hands on Kae and focus, sending your senses deep int her tissues. Damn that thing did a number on her. She has ruptured blood-vessels all through her body, if she was human, or, you reflect, fully human, she would already be dead.
You go to work, repairing burst blood vessels, coaxing blood out of places it’s not supposed to be, and just generally putting Kae back together. Once you’re done she is breathing easier and her heart beat is strong.You watch Kae for a few more minutes but she just lies there. You take this opportunity to go and fetch Lirael and Rainya.---When you return you ask Lirael and Rainya to wait outside you head in, only to find Kae sitting up in bed with her eyes open, dried blood still everywhere, and arguing with the hologram.“You damn machine!” fumes Kae “I’m fine, how many times do I need to- Oh hello Shee, where did you go?”“I Just went to get a friend” you say, or two.“How are you?”“I’m fine!” grouses Kae, folding her arms “What happened?”“What do you remember?” you ask. Kae looks thoughtful.“We had just knocked out the Twist-freak” she says “And then we went for the chaoswell, I touched it and...that’s it,” she gives you a worried look “Did we succeed?”“We did” you reassure her “You just got a little hurt.”“And?” says Kae, giving you a searching look “There’s more isn’t there?”Your response?>Nope, that’s it (exclusive option)>You’re a part-fae>Your father turned you into a *Subsidiary Soul*>Bring Rainya in>Bring Lirael in>Other (what?)old thread >>38035932
>>38039595>You’re a part-fae>Your father turned you into a *Subsidiary Soul*
>>38039595>You’re a part-fae>There is something else I need to show you, but tits probably better if you see it straight from my memories. Its a hard thing to accept.
>>38039595>Do you want the bad news, or the less bad news?
>>38039595>You’re a part-faeas in asking the hologram docto restate the diagnosis>Your father turned you into a *Subsidiary Soul*
>>38039595Sigh.kae, we have a lot to talk about.Explain everything.Alternate between informijg kae on you and her too.
>>38039649HOW IS THAT THE LESS BAD NEWS!? Weeeelll...Paranoid Conspiracy anon here. IF she's half fae... and Shee's name means Fae blood.. could they be related?
>>38039595>You're a part-fae>Your father turned you into a "Subsidiary Soul"I'm kind of worried that our PE is so low right now. She might do something crazy. Still voting for TRUTH though.
>>38039595>Your father turned you into a *Subsidiary Soul*
>>38039675I don't think she's half fae. Probably at least 75%.We saw her mom and her mom looked to be part-fae herself
>>38039688>She might do something crazy.Life Drain would still be a good first response to crazy things.And most of our combat suit doesn't need PE anyway.
Do we even use that rifle we turned into an infernal focus?
>>38039595>Your father turned you into a *Subsidiary Soul*>You good to go on? cos this gets out there.>You’re a part-fae and I saw some stuff about your past.>You asked if I loved you and otherwise got a bit odd about me lying to you in the future but that could be fay normal.
>>38039789I wish we'd made a staff instead.
>>38039802I voted for staff. Sadly no one else did.We can still turn one of the plasma pistols intoa wand though. That'd be useful.
>>38039805We should have taken the locket as Focus.
>>38039825Yep. When I was archive binging this quest and I got to that part I had to just stop and think "Are they seriously not using the locket? What the fuck? They're never going to use that gun!"
>>38039838I think most people had forgotten about the locket.Still saying we should get rid of the gun so we can turn the locket into a focus without spending XP for it.
>>38039856>Still saying we should get rid of the gun so we can turn the locket into a focus without spending XP for it.Does it actually work that way? I'd support it if it does.
Please roll 1d20+11 fellowship, 4 rollsgoing with part-fae only for now, subsidiary soul will come up again
Rolled 7 + 11 (1d20 + 11)>>38039878
Rolled 1 + 11 (1d20 + 11)I want to bring peoples attentions to the new peripherals we got for Willpower of the Mirror/King.Which are amazing.>>38039865It does, we only need to destroy/dismantle it.It was, however, a gift. So people are, to some extent understandably, reluctant to do it.>>38039878
Rolled 15 + 11 (1d20 + 11)>>38039878This is going to be "the gauntlet of fellowship rolls" isn't it?
Rolled 3 + 11 (1d20 + 11)>>38039878
>>38039904YesYou still have 10XPJust saiyin
>>38039890>It was, however, a gift.I get your point. But hindering ourselves to keep it as souvenir, is kinda against the original purpose behind the gift. So I don't think its a big deal.It doesnt have any particular emotional attachments, and it did serve its purpose for a time.
>>38039920Quick Autism! Buy Fellowship! I don't know how any of this works and I will never take the time to learn.
>>38039920So.Uhm. How about dem Negotiator ranks?
>>38039904Buy more fellowship? Skill or whatever?
One +1 Fellowship over direct Fellowship stat costs us 4XP just for upgrading to 12 and getting +1. Not worth it.So either we get the +6 for 10XP of the two additional Charimsa.Or we spend 8XP on 4 Ranks negotiator. For +8 in persuasion, diplomacy and negotiation.
I guess we could raise Fellowship to 15. It'd cost all of our xp.Not sure if we can get a bigger boost than that'd give by getting something else, though.
>>38039958More Crown maybe?
>>38039940>>38039944>>38039958Primary options are:4 ranks of Negotiator for a large (+8) bonus to Persuasion for 8 XP total2 ranks of Charisma (to ninth degree) for a total of +2 to all Fellowship checks and another +2 to Persuasion, Intimidate and Leadership for 10 XP total. Also boosts the crown's effects, which are pretty good.Oh, and Charisma 9 would grant us another 3 XP discount on a single peripheral of Charisma, but that doesn't really matter immediately since we'd be out of XP.
“Yeah” you say, “Look I saw some stuff in the chaoswell, and the medical scanners picked up some stuff and I think you might be part fae, and part human”.Kae just stares at you, shaking her head “No” she says quietly, adding again, louder this time “No, that’s impossible! My father is Lord Reaper and my mother was a noble of the royal court, I’m fully fae!”“Doctor, or hologram or whatever” you say to the medical hologram “Could you repeat the bit about human DNA.”The hologram obliges “The patient is a member of the subgenus Homo Sapiens Chaotica, informally known as: Chaos-kin, Faeblooded, Tw-”“Thank you” you say, cutting it off, you turn back to Kae “Look I’m not trying to trick you, I think this is the truth, and I thought you ought to know.”Kae glares at you “If I’m not fae then who is my father huh? Who is my mother?”“I think Lord Reaper is your father” you say “I don’t know who your mother is, but in the vision I saw she looked part fae/part human too.”Kae gives a mocking, but brittle laugh “As if a high-ranking noble like my father would go near a...a...a twist!” she almost screams.“I can see why he’d keep it from you” you say “I just thought you deserved to know the truth Kae.”Kae looks at you, searching your face for any sign of deception, and then tears start to leak from her eyes, leaving trails in the dried blood on her face.“Damn it” she whispers “Why didn’t you tell me father?”What do you do?>That’s enough for now (no more talking)>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)>Hug (tentacles?)>Invite Rainya in (and Lirael?)>Ask about Graced Vampires at the Royal Court>Other (what?)
>>38039982Isn't that maxed out?
>>38039981We can't to 15, 10XP would get us to 14, since Fellowship is a tertiary for Shee.
>>38039995>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)Hug time is after this one. She will need it.
>>38039995>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)>Voting for +4Ranks Negotiator
>>380399932 ranks of charisma the other effects are good.I want the negociator, but...
>>38039999The crown is a sub-power of Charisma of the King of Hell, which can be raised to a level equivalent to our favor with the King of Hell, so 9. We currently have 7.The crown's effects are: add degree in Charisma to Leadership (stacks with Charisma's native bonus), add degree in Charisma to mind-affecting power rolls.The Crown is effectively the same as Charisma for the purposes of increasing it's powers due to this.
>>38039995>Hugshe is wierded out by most of our gift right now i really not the time for tentaclesafter that>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)
>>38039993Does whatever we're doing now with Kae actually count as persuasion?
>>38039993I'm personally in favour of charisma, more because I like the theme of it rather than any superior mechanical effect. I'd be perfectly fine with buying up negotiator instead.>>38039995>Hug (tentacles)>That's not all!
>>38039995>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)>Hug
>>38040044It definitly is either Diplomacy or Persuasion, so either option would count.>>38039995>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)>Hug (No tentacles, those are for Rainya)And it would just freak her out right now.
>>38039995>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)could that human who raised her be mum?
100% backing Negotiator if we're about to drop that "Oh btw ur dad is pure evil and you're his Get Out of Death Free card" bombshell.
>>38040075Forgot to add Hug (no T)
>>38039995>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)
>>38039995>Hug her, without tentacles, let her cry herself out a bit, then ask her if she is ready for more or not>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)
>>38040044I believe so, as it is often used during friendly social interaction.The previous roll was a Persuasion roll, unless I'm mistaken. (Charisma rank (7) + Fellowship Modifier (2) + Negotiator Rank*2 (2) = 11)
>>38039995>Hugshe is wierded out by most of our gift right now i really not the time for tentaclesafter that>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)+4 negociator
>>38040091Can't we just let her read our mind?
I think we should get the 4 Negotiator. The +2 more we get from it can definitly make the dfference here.
>>38040105if it is a persuasion i am all for negotiator
Yes, it's Persuasion
>>38040113That will most likely happen. But we also need to get her to accept it.And that won't be easy. And there is the fact we can totally change our own memories.
The question is mostly, maximum security here(Negotiator) or a slight risk (+2) here, in exchange for a more broadly useful choice (Charisma) for later.
>>38040119+4.+4 more.The bonus from Charisma of the King of Hell is +2/rank after level 5 to the Fellowship *score*, a +1 to the Fellowship *modifier* is gained for every 2 point of Fellowship beyond 10, ergo a +4 to Fellowship score (2 ranks, as we are discussing) would be a +2 to all Fellowship checks due to the increased modifier.
Hug (no tentacles) plus Subsidiary Soul10 minutes to reach consensus on XP then I call for rolls
>>38040154Ah yes, sorry. Got confused about it being a ability bonus, not a ability mod bonus.
>>38040170Voting for Negotiator here.It seems we can all agree we want whatever bonuses possible for this.
>>38040170>>38040050This Anon here. Not sure where you're counting votes from.Just in case, I'm voting for Charisma of the King of Hell
>>38039995>Hug (tentacles)>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)
>>38040170I'd prefer Negotiator.
>>38039995>That’s not all....(Subsidiary Soul)>Voting for +4Ranks Negotiatorpls
>>38040170we should do shit the +4 from negotiator, this shit is seriousVoting for negotiator
>>38040170Better to make it a vote for >Negotiator>Charisma
>>38040170Also favouring Negotiator.But when in doubt >>38040253short five minutes should suffice. Probably less, since I don't expect much support for Charisma.
ok, we'll make it official5 minute vote>Negotiator>Charisma
>>38040170Negotiator, 4 ranks.
>>38040364>NegotiatorI can see the point of Charisma, but too much is at stake here for that risk.
ok, Negotiator it is, please roll 1d20+19, 4 rolls
Rolled 13 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38040456
Rolled 15 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38040456Woho, we are officially more thn half as good as Sireyi at diplomacy now.
Rolled 7 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38040456
Rolled 14 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38040456
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>38040456After the thread I want to know how high the DC was.
>>38040467kek. Bet the DC was 35
>>38040467That comment made me realise that Shee and Sireyi are pretty excellent Infernal/Solar comparison.
>>38040519Shee isn't evil though.. she's just not.. 'good.'Worlds a good bit darker for her than it was the Paladin counterpart.
>>38040495Probably like a 25 or 30.I find it interesting that it could be that Shee's dad was buds with kae's half brother, before the events shown.After this going to be show and tell with lirael likely.
>>38040539Didn't Sireyi get stuck in a world that had almost entirely been taken over by demonic forces? That's not exactly better than the Fae domination.
>>38040539Infernals aren't evil.
>>38040539>Worlds a good bit darker for her than it was the Paladin counterpart.Not really.This planet is basically a tamer form of Drache.At least here the regime isn't actively conspiring to make everyone evil.Apollyon is really pleasent by comparison.
>>38040568Yes they are? Isn't that what infernal implies?
>>38040611Follower of Konig detected.
>>38040519You now realise the Lords of Life are the Neverborn>>38040611No they aren't. There is nothing forcing a Infernal to be evil. He can be, just as a Solar can. its more about themes.
>>38040611That's just propaganda that angels have successfully spread to undermine their opponents. Infernals are really no different from you and I. Don't be racist.
>>38040631>The Neverborn>Sealed is not deadJust a reminder.
You take a couple of steps until you’re next to the bed and then you sit down on the bed and wrap Kae in your arms and hug her tightly, she struggles briefly and then leans into the hug, hugging you back and crying into your shoulder as you rock her and tell her that you’re here for her.A while later, after sge has calmed down you say to her “and that’s not all?”“No?” Kae gives a grim chuckle “Are you my half-sister or something?”“Actually” you say “Have you ever heard of a power called Segmented Soul?”Kae goes stiff in your arms “Yes” she whispers “It’s considered to be one of the worst powers one can wield, having it is a death sentence among the fae – though there are always whispers and rumours of old fae knowing it, and having legions of Subsidiary Souls.”Ouch...“Why is that?” you ask “I mean, I get that killing someone, like, your own creation or child to save yourself is...horrible, but-”“But why would Fae care?” asks Kae with a cynical laugh “It’s one of a number of powers” she muses “Attributed to Those Who Came Before – old gods and entities that existed long before the fae, the details are...debated but what is known is that fae – and a few others – can learn these power but...”“But?” you prompt“But learning them and using them” says Kae “is always a sign that the fae in question is going to go mad and start enslaving and killing his fellow fae. An inevitable fate that none have yet escaped” she says bitterly “Or so we’re told, perhaps the oldest of the fae want to keep certain powers for themselves and deliberately drive mad those who learn it. Either way, it’s forbidden.”“I think your father” you say hesitantly “Made you into a Subsidiary Soul of his somehow when you were a baby.”As Kae gives you an incredulous look you describe what you saw, in the visions and the image of her father, as well as his anger. You leave out the bit about her asking you if you loved her. You can talk about that later.
Kae hugs you tight “I don’t want to believe you” she whispers into your ear, between fresh sobs “But a part of me knows that it is true, I just wish....I wish....”“Me too” you say, holding her tight and rubbing her back “Yeah, me too...”---It’s even later now, but Kae has calmed down, somewhat at least.“So what now?” she says, looking at you as you sit on the bed next to her.“Now you rest” you say, handing her another cup of water she grimaces at it, then downs it “Nothing harder?” she asks“None I could find” you say, “Besides, alcohol probably isn’t a good idea right now.”“Please?” she asks plaintively. You recall the Waystation has quite a stock...“And after resting” adds Kae “I march up to my father and tell him what an asshole he is.”That might not go down that well....How do you respond?>Yeah, you tell your father what for!>I think you should join us, the rebels>Invite Rainya in (and Lirael?)>Ask about Graced Vampires at the Royal Court>Other (what?)Kae wants a drink, get her some alcohol?>Y/N

Could we psychically show her all the shit we saw in the Chaos well? Might be nice to see her mother even if she is a twist..
No way in hell we tell her to join the rebels right now, but we can't just let her go back home after that. No way.Also,>more votes than IPs
We should probably still tell her about us and the rebels. And how we don't really see eye to eye with eachother lately.
>>38040814>Also,>>more votes than IPsThat makes me wonder too, since the vote is basically unanimous as far as I can see.
>>38040814I count 14 votes and 15 IPs, so it's just 100% participation unless I miscounted.
>>38040841Ah no, that was my mistake I just realised. I wanted to delete my vote in favour of a write in, but I forgot. Sorry.
>>38040841There were 14 IPs (13 players +1 QM) and 14 votes when I posted that
>>38040814Hey I'll have you know only 12 of those are mine!
>>38040565>Didn't Sireyi get stuck in a world that had almost entirely been taken over by demonic forces? That's not exactly better than the Fae domination.And she managed to permakill its demon overlords, bring down the interplanar barrier, and help establish governmental reform.
>>38040950>and help establish governmental reformTo be fair, nearly all of that was done by her Interplanar-Sister.But the point is correct, if Sireyi were here this planet would be run different pretty fast.
>>38040976I really want to meet the angels of this setting at some point.I bet Pally is already trying to figure out how to make us use Liraels ability to travel to Heaven.
“Maybe we’ll have a drink later” you say, adding “I don’t think confronting your father is such a good idea, what do you think your father would do to you if you confronted him?”Kae opens her mouth to say something like *my father would never hurt me* and then she closes her mouth and thinks for a minute before saying “He’d probably make me forget this conversation” each word sounding like it has been forced from her.At the very least, you think.Kae continues “But where do I stay, and where is this anyway?” Ah, the difficult questions.“That’s a part of a larger secret” you say to Kae “Before we talk about that, I’m curious, did you hear anything about Graced Vampires at the Royal Court?”Kae gives you a suspicious look “Where did you hear about that?” she asks“A friend told me” you say.“The King has two captive” says Kae “A man and a woman, I’m not sure why, only that his generals where pretty excited so I think it’s something military. There was a child too” she adds, staring off “The King put her in a cage and the Court used to poke her with sticks, starving her and using experimental spells on her until she went feral, she seemed so sad, I stole some blood from the hospital and fed her a few times, and I think she was warming up to me a bit, then one day she was just....gone.”Huh, that fills in a few gaps at least, as well as tell you where to find Liraels parents, hopefully.“So” says Kae “Where is *here*? And what do *you* think I should do? Since I can’t go home.” Kae sounds like she blames you, or maybe she just wants to start a fight to distract herself from her own pain.Your response>You should join us (*my* rebels)>Invite in Rainya (and Lirael?)>I’m here for you, however you need me>You also asked me if I loved you>You still want a drink?>Other (what?)
>>38041046>Invite in Rainya and LiraelMakes me wonder Lirael didn't recognize her>I’m here for you, however you need me
>>38041046>I’m here for you, however you need me
>>38041046>I stole some blood from the hospital and fed her a few times, and I think she was warming up to me a bit, then one day she was just....goneHahahaha. And I had just said it would come up at some point.Well played.>I’m here for you, however you need me>Invite in Rainya and Lirael
>>38041046>I’m here for you, however you need me>Invite in Rainya and Lirael
>>38041046>Invite in Rainya and Lirael>I’m here for you, however you need meI'm going to assume we don't need a Perception check to see if Kae was saying the truth.
>>38041046>Invite in Rainya and Lirael>>I’m here for you, however you need meWell lirael may have a positive reaction to kae, if she did try to help her.We can explain where this is slowly.
>>38041046>You should join us (*my* rebels)>Invite in Rainya (and Lirael?)>I’m here for you, however you need me>This is a place to train to be psychic>I have a Island above my resonant you could hide in.
>>38041075Yeah, looks like we have to thank Kae for getting to meet Lirael.
>>38041046>Invite in Rainya and Lirael"Um, before we get to that, there are a couple people I want you to meet.">We're here for you
>>38041046>Do you want to meet her?

The pirate story wasn't the whole thing. Guess I did win that bet, mystery anon.>Invite in Rainya and Lirael>You should join us (my rebels)
>>38041046>I’m here for you, however you need me>You also asked me if I loved you>Invite in Rainya (and Lirael?)>You should join us (*my* rebels)
>>38041145>Guess I did win that bet, mystery anon.You did indeed. To be fair, thats mostly because Liraels version was incomplete then.
>>38041145It was true as far as we knew until now.In retrospect probably because she didn't remember. Which also explains why she didn't recognize Kae.
Please roll me 2d20, first is fellowship so 4 rolls needed, second is for some other thing, it's hardly important, barely worth mentioning really
Rolled 8, 11 = 19 (2d20)>>38041207Pally...
Rolled 13, 15 = 28 (2d20)>>38041207
Rolled 4, 9 = 13 (2d20)>>38041207
Rolled 4, 16 = 20 (2d20)>>38041207Pally pls
Good thing we got Negotiator instead of CotKoH. Right?
>>38041300Depends on what Fellowship it is.
>>38041203>probably because she didn't rememberNot just probably.If Lirael had memories of Kae, Shee would have recognized Kae in Liraels memories. OAnd Lirael would have recognized Kae in Shees.More so, Shee would have known what was going on with Lirael during her imprisoment, which apparently she didn't.
“Whatever you decide” you say “I’m here for you if you need me”Kae gives you a cheeky grin and says “However I need you huh?” and looks you up and down as you blush “I’ll remember that promise”“I meant” you clarify “Wherever you want to go from here, I’m here- no, *we* are here for you, girls would you come in?” As you requested Lirael and Rainya enter. You stand up to introduce them “I think you already known Rainya” you say “And this is Lirael.”“The little girl from the cage!” gasps Kae, looking back and forth between you and Lirael “No wonder you wanted to know, Oh Shee, she’s adorable!” Kae holds her arms out for a hug from Lirael“Cage?” asks Lirael, looking confused.“Yes” says Kae, her arms still outstretched “They put you in a cage at the royal court and hurt you but I fed you, don’t you remember?”Liraels eyes lose their focus and she says very slowly “I remember, I remember a cage with bars that I couldn’t break and...and before that, my mother screaming as they hurt her...the fae, burning her!”Lirael screams and leaps at Kae, her face a mask of rage. You react quickly and pluck her out of the air and hold her tight “Lirael you say, calm d-” Liraels flailing elbow smashes into your cheek, you feel bones crack and teeth loosen.[HP 125/130]Damn you forget how strong she can be when she wants to be. You struggle to hold onto her as she thrashes in your grip and tries to get at Kae, snarling like an animal and baring her fangs.What do you do?>Just hold onto Lirael until she calms down (arms only, or tentacles?)>Feed Lirael, might calm her down>Use power (what?)>Other (what?)
>>38041472>Just hold onto Lirael until she calms down arms and tentacles>Send everyone else out, for their own safety if nothing else>Feed Lirael, might calm her down
>>38041472>Just hold onto Lirael until she calms down arms and tentacles, the non-bone version>Enhance Ability(Strength)>Send everyone else out, for their own safety if nothing else>Feed Lirael, might calm her down
>>38041472>Just hold onto Lirael until she calms down arms and tentacles, the non-bone version>Enhance Ability(Strength)>Send everyone else out, for their own safety if nothing else>Feed Lirael, might calm her down"It's not her fault, Lirael. She tried to help you. Try to remember that."
>>38041472>Just hold onto Lirael until she calms down (arms + tentacles)>Try to connect with her mind
>>38041594We can't initiate that as far as I know, because we lack Mind Contact.
>>38041472>Just hold onto Lirael until she calms down >Shh, it'll be alright. We'll get them out. It'll be ok. I'm here.
Luckily even with maximum Enhancement is Lirael weaker than Shee.>>38041655I think they died already.
>>38041673Or horribly mindbroken creatures that Shee will need to "fix."
>>38041673I really hope they aren't dead. That would suck a lot.>>38041693I'm sure our good buddy Baalzamon could help us out with it.I'm really not looking forward to that thread...
>>38041472>Shh, it'll be alright. We'll get them out. It'll be ok. I'm here
>>38041712>I'm sure our good buddy Baalzamon could help us out with it.That would be the second time we get Favour from both Ichor and Baalzamon.
>>38041712>I really hope they aren't dead. That would suck a lot.While true.There is a part of me, a part that heavily favours Ichor, that would consider that very convenient.
>>38041729Baalz does care about making people happier, so long as you do it in a morally questionable way.
>>38041742Me too. I feel bad for it but, yeah.
You wrap your arms tightly around Lirael even as you boost your strength. Tentacles emerge from your back and restrain her, until she can barely move.“This will just take a moment” you say, carrying Lirael out of the room and somewhere more private, rather than asking a recently healed Kae to get out of bed.In another room you make a small cut on your shoulder and present it to the snarling Lirael, hopefully the smell of blood will- oh yeah that’s it!Lirael bites deeply into your shoulder as you lie down on a bed in another room, far away from Rainya and Kae. You keep your arms and tentacles wrapped tightly around Lirael though, doing your best to ensure your mind isn’t completely overwhelmed by this pleasure. Lirael makes pleased noises as she drains your blood and you taste your own blood as you bite your lip when the rising pleasure becomes too much to bear...---Afterwards, you lie on the bed with a calmer, remorseful and slightly confused Lirael“I attacked her, really?” asks Lirael for the third time.“Yes you did” you say “Kae said something about the Fae Court and you being in a cage and your mother being burned, what do you remember?”Lirael screws up her brow in concentration “I don’t remember” she says “I think...I think the pirates sold us to the fae, I remember cages and laughing cruel men, but I was with my parents so I wasn’t scared. Then I remember them taking my mother and father away and a smell of burning...I’m sorry Shee that’s all”.“It’ll come” you reassure her, wondering if you should use your powers to help her recover the memories at some point “In any case, Kae said you were kept in a cage and hurt by the fae, but she fed you, I don’t have any reason to think she’s lying” so far...“I’m sorry” says Lirael, contrite “I just, I remembered my mother being hurt and then everything faded away, and then the next thing I know you’re feeding me.”
“It’s alright” you say. You carefully unwrap your tentacles and arms from Lirael and head back to where Rainya and Kae are talking.“-nd when I nibble her ear she makes this sighing noise that, oh hey Shee!” says Rainya as you enter “Lirael, how are you feeling?”“Msorry” says Lirael, glancing guiltily at Kae “Dinmeanit...”Kae looks lost for a moment and then smiles, holding her arms out for a hug “That’s ok, friends?”Lirael eagerly swarms up into Kae’s arms, little cuddle-hungry thing she is and starts asking Kae questions about the fae court, as Kae answers you tense, in case there is another outburst from Lirael, but your fears are unfounded and soon the two are chatting like long-lost friends. You just watch them with a smile on your face, and barely notice when Rainya comes and stands next to you, putting an arm around your waist. Eventually Lirael asks Kae “What are you going to do when you’re better Kae?”“I’m not sure” admits Kae, her arms still around Lirael “I can’t go home, I was thinking I should head into the desert.”“Why?” asks Lirael “Geheganesh” says Kae “He cares not for politics, but has been known to help fae who have lost their way, it’s really the only thing I can think of right now, perhaps when I’ve rested, I’ll have other ideas.”Lirael gives you a look “Can’t see stay with us Shee, please?” she draws out the last word.At your side Rainya says quietly “If she could be convinced to join us, she’d be a powerful ally.”Your response?>Sleep Kae, we’ll talk in the morning>Yeah desert vision quest or whatever sounds good>You could stay with us Kae (tell her you are rebels? Y/N)>Other (what?)
>>38041966>>Sleep Kae, we’ll talk in the morning
>>38041966>I have a place where you could stay. Its a bit unsual, but it would be safe, and probably not boring>Tell her about the rebels, our differences with the leadership, and make clear she doesn't have to get involved in it if she seeks shelter with us

>>38041966>>I have a place where you could stay. Its a bit unsual, but it would be safe, and probably not boring>>Tell her about the rebels, our differences with the leadership, and make clear she doesn't have to get involved in it if she seeks shelter with us

Its a bit unsual, but it would be safe, and probably not boring>Tell her about the rebels, our differences with the leadership, and make clear she doesn't have to get involved in it if she seeks shelter with usI'm not sure we are actually rebels right now. We aren't really doing much rebel things.I think we just help Dusters a bit, at this point.
>>38041966Tell her about the rebels, our differences with the leadership, and make clear she doesn't have to get involved in it if she seeks shelter with us
>>38041966>Sleep Kae, we’ll talk in the morning>You could stay with us Kae, tell her you are rebels.>I have a place where you could stay.
>>38042080The only rebel thing we've done since Charun died is to take out the chaoswell, and that wasn't even something that the main rebel group was doing or even thought themselves capable of doing. They just would like that it got done.
>>38042080Our goals still match theirs, I hope. Liberate the planet from the Fae. Otherwise, what are we even doing?
>>38042128>Otherwise, what are we even doing?Longterm goals include>Finding Liraels parents, probably removing Lord Reaper/King Ordayen in the process>Surviving the First Stage of the Reunited competition>Protect the Dusters as good as we can>Take care of people we like
>I have an unusual place you can stayI'm not sure if you mean the facility or your own realm?Please clarify or I'll just go with facility
>>38042199I meant realm, but facility works too I guess...
>>38042199I meant the realm in the restaurant when I voted for it.
Sorry, I was under the impression that "unsual place" would clearly indicate the Realm.
>>38042199We mean realm but both work, let her pick.
>>38042199My bad then, when I wrote it seemed obvious enough to be the Realm with "unusual but safe", since she already is in the facility.Sorry I phrased it too ambigious.
>>38042240We would still show her the Realm then, and I can't see a reasonw hy she wouldn't want to stay in the place where we can provide pretty much everything.
>>38042243>when I wrote it seemed obviousWelcome to my job Anon, welcome to my job...Ok, realm it is, also please roll 1d20+19, 4 rolls.
Rolled 8 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38042274
Rolled 9 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38042274Yeah, I get it Pally.
Rolled 11 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38042274
Rolled 17 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38042274Watch this be the first triple 1 in the quest.
>>38042294You were right anon. We have three 1s.
“I have a place where you could stay.” You say, adding “Its a bit unusual, but it would be safe, and probably not boring.”“Where is it?” asks Kae “It’s on the top floor of my restaurant” you say “And I think it might be another dimension or something too.”Kae gives you a look that suggests she doubts your sanity right now.“I’ll show you” you say “Anyway, the important thing is that you’d be with us, your friends, and you’d have a purpose.”“And what are *you* and your friends” says Kae, giving you a slightly suspicious look.“We’re rebels” you say, as Kae’s eyes widen you clarify “We’re only slightly connected to the main rebellion – those guys are assholes, seriously, we try not to hurt people, we’re in this to protect people, such as the dusters.”“Ok....” says Kae “That’s...not surprising, or even shocking, well honestly with everything else, I’m all shocked out for now.”“What do you say?” You ask “Want to join the proud and happy few?”Kae gives you a thoughtful look “That depends” she says “On what the goals of your little band are?”What are they?You could tell her you haven’t decided, true, but not very inspiring.You could tell her you’re in this to protect people.You could tell her you just want the fae off this world, then people can decide for themselves.You could tell her that, no offence, the fae aren’t running the place very well, it would be better if you were in charge. This would please the King of Hell.You could tell her that you intend to build a better world, and then make it a reality. You have a vague notion of somehow merging your realm with this entire planet, just as the fae are trying to merge it with the world of dreams. This suits both of your aspects (increases both).
Or you could tell her something else.This is an important vote as it sets the goals for your little group. What you choose will set the DC Of the final Fellowship check to get Kae to join you.You have 10 minutes to discuss and suggestion write-ins, then a 5 minute vote will be called.
>>38042552You could tell her that you intend to build a better world, and then make it a reality. You have a vague notion of somehow merging your realm with this entire planet, just as the fae are trying to merge it with the world of dreams. This suits both of your aspects (increases both).Just getting my new ip in, combining it with protecting people as a good reason as well.
>>38042552>You could tell her that you intend to build a better world, and then make it a reality. You have a vague notion of somehow merging your realm with this entire planet, just as the fae are trying to merge it with the world of dreams. This suits both of your aspects (increases both).I like this one. Maybe work in something about how things are broken now and they're getting worse. We need to fix it.
>>38042552>You could tell her that, no offence, the fae aren’t running the place very well, it would be better if you were in charge. This would please the King of Hell.>You could tell her that you intend to build a better world, and then make it a reality. You have a vague notion of somehow merging your realm with this entire planet, just as the fae are trying to merge it with the world of dreams. This suits both of your aspects (increases both).These two options are so, so appealing to me.
>You could tell her you’re in this to protect people.I think this is a good starting point, should we ask her help with working out what we might be able to do if we get godhood.
>>38042552I don't really care if she "joins" us. She can just hang out in our Divine Realm and party all day for all I care. Maybe teach a few Martial Arts. She doesn't have to help us or fight with us.So I don't really care. And I don't think we can acutally boil down our intentions to a few lines.We, Shee personally, wants to survive the Reunited contest, get Lirael back to her parents(if still possible) and help people she cares about along the way.Thats really literally all we are doing. We do some stuff to help the Dusters if we run across something that helps there, like with the well, but its not really our goal.We just wan the place to not be a opressive shithole. And we do whatever it takes to get it there. I'm not even sure how invested we are in actually changing this planet in the long-run.
>>38042531>tell her you’re in this to protect people.>tell her you just want the fae off this world, then people can decide for themselves.>"The humans on this planet, especially the dusters, suffer and are taken advantage of everyday, and all at the hands of the Fae and their minions. And it's only going to get worse and you know it. We mean to change that."
>>38042552I'm okay with everything that isn't targeted against one specific group, like "all the fae need to be run off the planet". And saying we fight for the Dusters or some shit would be flat-out lying because if we actually were in this for the Duster we wouldn't have spend the last week n our cozy restaurant. We would have been in Dust Town helping people rebuild so they have a place to sleep.
>>38042531>You could tell her that you intend to build a better world, and then make it a reality. You have a vague notion of somehow merging your realm with this entire planet, just as the fae are trying to merge it with the world of dreams. This suits both of your aspects (increases both).
so several people are liking multiple options, so I'm thinking a list of all the options with multiple Y/N voted forlikeOption 1Y/NOption 2Y/Netc>>38042634Thank you for the comments, this vote is partly because so far Shee hasn't really had many long-term goals apart from those you listed.I suppose I could separate *no long term goals* from *I don't know* as an option.
>>38042758discussion extended for 5 minutes because of multiple option suggestions.Is this ok as a vote format?
>Honestly, at this point we are just trying to make life a little bit safer for the Dusters when we can. Yes, it would be nice in the long run to remove the opression and exploitation that people on the planet suffer from. But we do't know how to accomplish that right now. Removing the fae, no offense, wouldn't accomplish that. And removing all the vampire families would require a global civil war that would help no one. So for now we try to help people in the little, like with the well, and wait for the chance to change something about the big picture.>>38042758I honestly don't think its a good idea to "settle our goals". Its okay we tell Kae what we plan, because the character wants to hear. But that shouldn't affect anything beyond that, except that Kae would expect us to act on it.
>>38042783Not really no. It just results in Shee proclaiming a weird mix of goals that we will in effect never actually act on.
>>38042783We should go with write-ins. We convince Kae the character, doing Y/N will be a calculation nightmare and not actually determine anything, because people that didn't vote for a option that happened to win, won't follow it. And since its late, a lot of people voting here right now, won't be here to decide on a lot of threads.
>>38042783Why exactly do we need a "long-term goal"? We've been pretty okay sofar with just taking things as they come, handling issues that come up.And its not like we aren't busy enough.
Is "Make the world a better place by kicking ass untill it starts making the world a better place" a valid goal?
>>38042783>YWith certain elements of the various write-ins as options.
>>38042868>Why exactly do we need a "long-term goal"?I would like some sort of goal or plan for Shee to act towards. However if players prefer to simply react to events as they occur, then I can go with that.Most of the write-ins seem to be about Shee making the world a better place in small ways, as she can without having an overall goal. I can certainly include that as an option.
I still want to do the thing where we turn our realm into the real world.
>>38042929>However if players prefer to simply react to events as they occur, then I can go with that.Thats pretty fine by me.I heavily doubt deciding something now will make us start acting on that goal RIGHT NOW. You would be herding cats anyway trying to make people actually pursue those goals instead of the immediate issues we have to deal with.
>>38042966 Maybe we should have Rainya and Dev give their opinions too before we ser anything in stone.
>>38042966>>38042998Sorry. Didn't mean to link you.
>>38042998>>38042929Thats also a signifcant point. There also would need to be a option of "what do you/others want to change?"We aren't doing this alone.
>>38042998We could possibly lose one or both of them with what we say here.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.
>>38043049Thats not true here though.
What do you tell her?I have no long-term goals, I’m just trying to make the world better in anyway I can>Y/NNot sure yet>Y/NThe first 2 options are exclusive to all others – in either words, if either one wins, then no other options will be included.Protect people>Y/NRemove the Fae>Y/NI should be in charge>Y/NI will make a better world for everyone>Y/NThis is not setting things in stone or prevent Shee from ever working towards a goal that didn’t win, it’s about having some sort of overall plan to follow, As have said, if players don’t want to pick a plan, then I am fine with that. And yes, delaying the decision until you have spoken to everyone (Not Sure Yet) is fine too.If you don’t want to vote for all options just put in greentext the ones you do want.Voting time 10 minutes from now
This is something we really should have decided on, or at least had a better idea of, before recruiting anyone else.
>>38043065sorry, vote starts now, lasts for 10 minutes is what I meant
I want to take over the world.Protect people>NRemove the Fae>NI should be in charge>YI will make a better world for everyone>Y

>>38043065NYYNNYVoting for two in the latter half because I'd prefer those two if 'not sure yet' doesn't win.
>>38043065>I have no long-term goals, I’m just trying to make the world better in anyway I can>Y
>>38043065>Thats something all of us need to decide together. All of us have visions and goals and I will try to do justice to all of them. I only want those I care about to be safe and happy. And try to help others to make their loved ones safe and happy.This vote is terrible

Thinking the lazy copy-pasting shits that vote here will actually do shit to work on those goals. You really should know better by now Pally.This does nothing but allow the option of having people say reatrded shit, like tell to KAE we want to remove all fae for being fae.

Wow. I really thought there'd be more support for at least giving Rainya and Dev a chance to speak.
>>38043065NNYY?N?Maybe? If we need to, they'd go, I guess. At least just them as rulers because shit sucks now.N, but I don't completely write off the possibility. Still rather it be someone else.Y
>>38043235Dev's at work and we sorta took over this group and declared ourself the boss and the others declared that they'd follow us.Seems kinda weird to go back now and start being all "Oh, no. We're all equal leaders here!"
>>38043235They're our underlings and will know their place. This is the beginning of a new and glorious divine empire. I wish, damn hippie voters
Ok, ending vote here, thank you for your patienceIt appears that the winning votes are Protect + make a better worldPlease check my count of course.
>>38043235>>38043283Oh wait. Dev got fired, didn't he. Forgot about that for a second.
>>38043235You think the samefagging shits that want to bring their version in here actually give a shit about the story and characters?It doesn't matter anon. If it consoles you, it will just make Shee look like a schizophrenic douchebag for a moment, nd then we can continue to act as if this stupid vote enver happened and follow the story and ask Dev and Rainya for their opinion in a vote that matters for shit.
>>38043314>I'm salty that my preferred option didn't win
>>38043314>"I want to help people and I have a vague idea of how to do it involving dimensional something something"Wow. Such a schizophrenic douchebag.
Please roll Fellowship 1d20+19, 4 rolls required.
Rolled 17 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38043329I don't have one. In difference to you idiots I actually think about these things and realise we don't actually have a overarching goal and we won't do anymore to pursue these things than we have before.>>38043363
Rolled 5 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38043363
Rolled 9 + 19 (1d20 + 19)>>38043363
>>38043283But she's not even asking her girlfriend what she thinks they should all be risking their lives for. It seems unbelievably cold to just declare our groups intentions without even a conversation about what each of them thinks they should be.
>>38043345The schizophrenic part will settle in once we continue the quest and never actively pursue these goals anymore than we have before.Which is exactly whats going to happen because sofar the main interest was on the reunited subplot. We stopped actively doing rebel things ages ago.
>>38043283Its not about equal leaders. its about valuing their input. And we just made clear we don't give a shit what they want. Rainya for example, had already once thoughts on the issue we didn't adress at all. Most likely because most of you have already forgotten about it.
>>38043402But we just sabotaged warp gate.
>>38043402>We stopped actively doing rebel things ages agoAre you even reading the quest?
>>38043441>>38043437I don't think that guy is counting it because the order didn't come from Six.
>>38043371Gosh anon, if only we mere peons had your keen insight. We could continue on without a goal.>>38043402Except for that raid on the police compound. And that mission we just did.
>>38043437Which was the only rebel thing we did since the station.And we didn't do it for the rebels, we did it to not have the beastmen coming here. Hell, we even said we don't care about all the other warpgates.
>>38043392I'm assuming that Pally will make it input from the group.
>>38043462>Except for that raid on the police compound.Which we did to pursue the Reunited plot.
>>38043402The reunited subplot sort of insists that we persue it though, in light of how utterly fucked this world. Once it got started we couldn't really back away anymore. At least that's how it seems to me.
>>38043477I sure hope so or I'd expect her relationships to take a serious hit.
>>38043508>The reunited subplot sort of insists that we persue it thoughThat is part of the issue, yes.We will definitly pursue the Reunited plot.The other thing? Maybe if Pally steers us there by himself. Not on our own.Even the warpgate we only pursued because Kae told us about it.We ourselves ignored the gate.
>>38043477Thats why this should have been with write-ins instead of the Y/N thing.There should have been a option of "This is my take on it, but what do you guys think".Which wasn't even an option!
>>38043537Of course we ignored it before, Six never told us that it's going to be used to transport army.
>>38043454>Six>RebelHe's a terrorist, anon.>>38043470So sabotaging a government facility to protect the interests of the civilians when there's literally nothing more you can do isn't a rebel activity because we didn't somehow stop every single possible future worldgate attempt on the entire planet?Doing something *for* the shitheads in the rebellion and it being a *rebel thing* are not the same thing.We *settled* for just sabotaging this one incredibly valuable structure that will make it nigh-impossible for them to open a worldgate anywhere near here.>>38043537We didn't ignore it, we were planning on investigating it later to make sure, Kae just told us before we got the chance.
>>38043537>Even the warpgate we only pursued because Kae told us about it.It was a farm untill Kae said it was a army incoming. I don't vote to stop food being grown anon.
>>38043582>So sabotaging a government facility to protect the interests of the civilians when there's literally nothing more you can do isn't a rebel activity because we didn't somehow stop every single possible future worldgate attempt on the entire planet?I literally called it a rebel thing in the post you were quoting anon.Learn to read.
“What I want is to protect people” you say “There’s a lot of dangers in this world” you mentally list a few, vampires, shadow-wielding vampires, serec, the fae, the Reunited “And the ordinary people of this world don’t have much chance against some things. I’ve got a lot of things I need to deal with, but I want to protect people.”“That’s fine as a goal” says Kae “I guess, but how are you going to do that?”“I’m not yet sure” you say “stopping the army camping near the Hive was a good example though – if I see something wrong, then I’ll try to fix it.”“There’s always going to be things wrong though” says Rainya “I mean, just surviving is a day-to-day struggle in Dust Town, and I don’t think Hive-folk are exactly safe either, from what I’ve seen.”As you all talk, Lirael just watches and listens.“Rainya is right Shee” says Kae “Even with...everything I’ve learned today, that’s just the way of the world, it sucks” She says with a bitter laugh “Get used to it and have some fun whilst you can.”“It doesn’t have to be” you say “I want, I want to build a better world, this world can be changed, it can be better, we can make it better, as impossible as that sounds.”“Noble ideals” says Kae “What the hell, it sounds fun, I’m in.”“Me too” says Rainya, smiling at you and giving you a one-armed hug “It sounds fun. I still want to find out what happened to my brother though.”“We’ll find out” you tell Rainya “I’ll make sure of it.”“I’m in too” says Lirael “And I think my parents would approve, once we free them.” You don’t mention your doubts about whether they’re alive or not.“Shouldn’t Dev be here for this?” asks Rainya“I’ll talk to him” you say “So far he’s said he wants to set everyone free, that was his reason for getting involved in the rebellion, if he still wants to do that, then he shouldn’t have a problem with this, if he does, then we’ll talk, I won’t force anyone to follow me.”
“And on that note” says Kae “I’m getting tired, I guess I’ll see you all in the morning?”“You can count on it” you say, wondering what the morning will bring.What do you plan to do tomorrow?Shee's To Do List1. Activate psychic power (enough time has passed, the risk is no minimal)2. Check out the reunited leads (elite cop, the brawler, etc.)3. Talk to Garrax (reunited)4. Show Kae your Realm5. Seek the favour of one of the Five (which?)6. Explore the research facility (looking for what?)7. Contact the Rebellion about a mission (or to cut ties officially?)8. Research the Fae Court/Palace, is there a way in?>Or something else?
>>38043639>4. Show Kae your Realm
>>38043639>5. Seek the favour of one of the Five (jagganatha)
>>38043639>4. Show Kae your RealmAnd hope we got news from the fighter we contacted.
>>38043639>4. Show Kae your Realm>Start to make some changes to the realmSo far, it just has a lot of water and an island with a building on it and I'm fairly sure the island is some kin of cross between a pillbox and a shed.We should at least put a bed in it if we're gonna ask Kae to live in it.
>>38043681Pretty sure creating stuff for her is going to be part of showing her.
Oh, look. The people freaking out were doing so for nothing.>>38043639>1. Activate psychic power (enough time has passed, the risk is no minimal)
>>38043639>4. Show everyone in the group your Realm>Get some alone time with Rainya. Some actual alone time, for once.
>>38043639>4. Show everyone your RealmFairly sure we haven't shown Rainya, Lirael and Dev either yet.
>>38043639I think sooner than later we should check symbiots.
sorry, yes, I am changing *show Kae* to *show everyone* unless there are any objections.
>>38043639>4. Show everyone your Realm
>>38043639>Explore the research facility with Kea, see if she knows what the box that trys to kill us is?>Dare you enter my magic realm?
>>38043748Ah good, thats alright. Was about to change it.
>>38043735I'd just as soon never touch them and forget they even exist. Assuming they have the same kinds of problems that tend to crop up with those sorts of things.
>>38043763I still want to at least know what they store in the freezers.
>>38043715>>38043800Hold that thought anons, not the time in this vote, since thats rathe rincompatible. That comes when we throw everyone else out and retreat on our traveling island.
>>38043841I understand that, I'm just marking my support for the idea so that Pally might include something along those lines as a pre-written option once it is actually relevant and possible.
>>38043861Ah, good idea, then.
>>38043841I don't mean right now. Just something to do before the day's over.
What happened to the first thread of this session? when i looked for it to catch up it was gone. What happened?
>>38043967https://archive.moe/tg/thread/38035932/#q38035932Basically we walked all over the place like the Hauptmann von Köpenick and only got fucked when Kae got overload from the well.Still worked ort relatively okay.
>>38044009Thank you anon. Shee bless you.
>>38043967>send most of the mages into the hive for R&R>one saw through our disguise and got mindraped from us>we drained the well, started seeing visions>Kae got high as a kite on chaos energy, and asked us if we love her, because only her father loves here and everyone else just uses her>we found out her father put something of him inside her when she was a baby>Kae is half-fae>we introduced her to Rainya and Lirael>she met Lirael when she was imprisoned by the fae, and gave her some blood, which is probably how Lirael managed to escape
The next morning, you, Rainya, Kae and Lirael wake up in the facility. Kae is fully healed and feeling energetic enough to do something, so you all teleport back to the Waystations residence to find Dev in the kitchen, in his underwear and t-shirt, eating cereal.“What?” he says as the four of you give him looks of exasperation or amusement “It’s my day off.”“And this is Dev” you say to Kae “Kae Dev, Dev Kae”“Hi” says Dev to Kae, waving a spoon at her“Uh hi” says Kae “Such a lovely place you have here, so uh...casual.”“Dev can you at least put some clothes on” chides Rainya“Its my day off” says Dev.“How would you like it if we went walking around in our underwear?” asks Rainya “put some clothes on.”You miss the next part of the conversation, torn between laughing at the idea of Dev being put out at a bunch of girls walking around half-naked, and imagining Rainya in her underwear.“Alright, alright” says Dev, heading for his room muttering “women!”Once Dev is properly attired, you lead everyone up the flight of stairs and out onto the tiny island. As always here, the sea is churning and a storm is blowing.“Huh” says Dev, wrapping his arms around him, his thing clothes little protection against the cold “I swore I woke up this morning.”“What is this place?” asks Kae, Rainya just nods in agreement and Lirael says “Ugh this is cold and wet.”“This place” you say “Is mine.”“Can you make it warmer?” asks Dev “For the girls, at least?”He’s starting to shiver.“In here” you say, leading them all into the small shack.“Congratulations” says Lirael “Your gods have seen fit to bestow upon you...a mighty hut!”“Behave” says Rainya to Lirael“Shee” says Kae “this is uh a lovely place, but why are you showing us this?”“Because” you say, concentrating. A table and chairs appear and the building grows warmer. On the table a map appears, showing a vast ocean with a tiny island spec in the middle.
“We are here” you say, pointing at the island “And this whole place is mine, I can change it.”You wait for that to sink in, then everyone starts talking at once.“Shee you have your own realm” says Kae, impressed “only very powerful fae can do that, I uh, wow.”“What can you do with it?” asks Rainya“Can you make spaceships?” asks Lirael excitedly“This could be a training grounds” says Dev excitedly “Or a base!”What do you do?>I want to hear your ideas on what to build>Kae is living here, she gets first pick>Lets build stuff on the mini-map I made (what?)>Enough, lets go (leave)>Other (what?)
>>38044194>Kae is living here, she gets first pick
>>38044194>>I want to hear your ideas on what to build>Kae is living here, she gets first pick within reason.I should be able to do anything I can think of properly, but it'll take time. The more complicated the more time it'll take.
>>38044194>I want to hear your ideas on what to build>Kae is living here, she gets first pick, you others start thinking about some things you want. But start with small things, it takes time.
>>38044194>I want to hear your ideas on what to build>Kae is living here, she gets first pickbecause i very much dount she can be detected here form the outside
>>38044194>Lets build stuff on the mini-map I made (what?)I wanna make some floating islands. With trees on them. Actual trees.
>>38044194>“Can you make spaceships?”"You know what? That was the first thing I was gonna do. Which one would you like? Not to big though."
>>38044194>I want to hear your ideas on what to build
>>38044194>>I want to hear your ideas on what to build
>>38044266Well depends on how much magic was being used to find her and if her dad could track her through the subsidiary soul. But yeah I can't imagine it'd be easy.
>>38044194>I want to hear your ideas on what to build>Yes Lirael, even a spaceship, but I need to see how those actually look like first before I can make you one. Its longterm project.
>>38044194>I want to hear your ideas on what to build>Kae is living here, she gets first pick
>>38044289Its probably possible to find someone here if you invest enough effort.But I doubt we'll be so lucky having him come here.
>>38044194>I want to hear your ideas on what to build>Kae if you want to start living here I can make anything you need, but it might take time.
>>38044194>“only very powerful fae can do that, I uh, wow.”Something tells me we would have had a way better chance with the chaoswell than people gave us credit for.
>>38044366We always had a decent chance. Just less so then Kae, because she actually knew what she needed to do.
>>38044330Well yeah I wouldn't go in to another demi-deity equivalent's plane either. But if I know where it is I could launch attacks or try and pop its planar bubble.>>38044366Probably, still we learned stuff we wouldn't have otherwise. Now we can cleanse of her subsidiary souls(hopefully) so she doesn't become her dad when we invariably off him.
>>38044414>invariably off himMight be easier to just trap him in our Realm.Can't reincarnate if you don't die.>>38044414>and pop its planar bubbleSince this is more Exalted than Planescape, I feel very confident saying that most definitly not a thing.This place can't be destroyed unless we die for reals.
>>38044468>Might be easier to just trap him in our Realm.>Can't reincarnate if you don't die.Provided we can seal him off in it and make another realm or subdivide our own, that's a good idea. Need to see how it'd play out though. Also make sure he can't suicide.>Since this is more Exalted than Planescape, I feel very confident saying that most definitly not a thing.>This place can't be destroyed unless we die for reals.Here's hoping. I just want to be prepared. He could still zerg this place with beastmen though.
>>38044535>He could still zerg this place with beastmen though.Another reason why we should get higher Ranks in Oceanic Dream.So we can start filling this place with our children.
>>38044535The only way in or out is a narrow staircase, though, so Zerg vs Shee Hyulk isn't going to end well for the fae.
>>38044575You can probably make other paths into the place.Or at least it seems likel enough that I'm going to assume its possible, even if most likely not easy.We do have the option to get defenses though, so it shouldn't be that much of a problem.
>>38044563We have a lot of abilities we want upped still it isn't a bad idea.>>38044575Kae is half to 3/4 fae and full fae are stronger. Unless we get really fricking strong her dad could rip us a new one, as could most fae champions at this juncture. Additionally new pathways could get opened or torn. Interdimensional teleport is a thing as well.
>>38044655>We have a lot of abilities we want upped still it isn't a bad idea.Too true...>We will never have enough spare XP to make Feast of Life seem like a good investment.
>>38044703yupIf Feast actually improved the Hp to pe conversion ratio when upped I'd seriously think about it.
>>38044575As long as we're here.
>>38044754And as long as a fae lord doesn't show up..... Her dad is a general he doesn't need to be the one to come for a fae to kick our shit in.
“Well Kae gets first pick” you say “since she’ll be living here.”“I will?” asks Kae“Can you think of a better place?” you ask“Than a pocket Realm that’s almost impossible to detect and very difficult to enter with magic” says Kae “That can be changed into anything I want?”“Within reason” you say“Within reason” she agrees “Uh no, this is perfect, thank you Shee!” she hugs you impulsively. Lirael suddenly shoots Rainya a curious look, Rainya just smiles, thinly.“Anyway” you say “What do you want Kae?”As the others start talking you say “Kae first, then I’ll hear your ideas.”“Oh not much” says Kae “A small house, 50, maybe 60 rooms, fully staffed of course. A forest to ride horses through, I should only need a dozen or so horses, I’ll describe the breeds. A golf course, I don’t play much, but it’s the done thing. A personal shuttle and landing pad. A modest estate, perhaps 200 acres, with deer and other wildlife.”You’re slightly stunned as she continues “A shopping mall, with variety, 100 stores perhaps. And some clubs, maybe a dozen, with people in, 24 hours for preference, fully stocked bars, say, you can make the guys and girls look like whatever I want them too right?”You forgot that this girl basically grew up as a princess, you’re surprised she didn’t ask for a-“Oh and a castle!” says Kae “I’ve always wanted one, that should be enough to start with.”“Right” you say weakly “And the rest of you?”Rainya and Dev look a little stunned, Lirael says “Can I have a castle too? A silver one?”“I thought you wanted a spaceship” you say “Which, by the way, you’ll either need to help me build or get me a lot of pictures and technical manuals.”“Duh” says Lirael “You put the castle *on* the spaceship, honestly Shee” and shakes her head.“Rainya, Dev?” you ask, in the hope they’ll ask for something reasonable.
Dev speaks first “Well yeah” he says “A base with guns and training grounds and places to practise battles and stuff” ah good, typical reliable guy stuff.“And maybe a zoo” he adds, noting your look he says “What? I like animals.”“Rainya?” you ask again. Rainya looks thoughtful“Well you’ve got an ocean” she says “Why not make the weather sunnier and start with a beach? I’ve never been to one, but I’ve seen pictures” Yeah, Rainya sunbathing, there’s an idea you can get behind...“And then maybe like a hospital or something” says Rainya “I mean, can people even get sick here if you don’t want them to?”That’s...an interesting idea, you hadn’t thought of that.“Well either way” you say “I think the first step is to make the island bigger.” This idea meets with general approval.And after that?>I’m going to make (what?)>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)>No making things today, do something else (options in next post)>Other (what?)Go nuts with what you wanna build. If there’s no consensus I’ll organise write-ins into voting options.
>>38044703Doesn't it give us 120xp worth of vampire powers for maxing it out while only costing 60 for all of it? I guess vamp stuff isn't all that good.
>>38044805>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)>Warmer and sunnier, so we can ogle sunbathing Rainya while working>I’m going to make>Lets get started on one castle then
>>38044805>>I’m going to make (what?)A beach, some trees, a bar>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)Slightly warmer and calmer with a cool ocean breeze.
>>38044805>I’m going to make (what?)Everything.
>>38044805>>I’m going to make (what?)A beach, some trees, a bar>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)Slightly warmer and calmer with a cool ocean breeze
>>38044805>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)>Warmer and sunnier, so we can ogle sunbathing Rainya while working>>38044823this anon has his priorities right
>>38044807Its not bad" but it would requires us to actually save up and then dump all those 60XP.And then most vampire powers aren't really as good as what we could otherwise buy, because its mostly Enhancements, instead of unique abilities.If we were more physical combat focused it'd be worth more, but then Strength of Jagganatha would be better.>>38044805>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)>Warmer and sunnier, so we can ogle sunbathing Rainya while workin>A House first, modest, around the size of the restaurant. Castles come later
>>38044805>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)Make it sunnier and hopeful. >Focus on the hospital and training yard castle. >Tell Kae being a bit ambitions, start off with a beach resort as a place to stay.
>>38044805Floating islands. Lots of floating islands. And trees on them. Maybe make spatial folds through archways, maybe archways made of trees bending together, that connect the islands so you can get from one to another by just walking.I'd like to set the place to high-tech. I'd also like to add some AI hologram things and computers and stuff. Something like Teacher but less busted would be nice.
>>38044885Would be a good idea to see if we can drag the entire research facility here later on.
>>38044805>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)>Warmer and sunnier, so we can ogle sunbathing Rainya while workin>A House first, modest, around the size of the restaurant.
MetaFeat of Life, I realised I had left something out which needed to be explicitVampires don't have PE, they have Vitae, Feats of Lifes vitae pool can be used to power your psychic abilities
>>38044805>I’m going to make (what?)A nice tropical resort setup, Kae's got some... big ideas but we can build up to that.
>>38044905Yeah, that'd be cool. Or just make a copy of it if we can. The psychic activation chambers would be neat to have.
>>38044908I think we realised that already.Its a bit broken in that it gives us infinite vitae by just feeding on and healing Rainya all day.
>>38044805You know what this place needs? A pretty sky. A really, really pretty sky. Nobody on this hellhole of a planet has seen the sky in forever because of all the goddamn dust everywhere.I want stars and a moon or two and nebulae and all kinds of pretty shit when you look up at it at night.
>>38044927>>38044880You need to remember, Shee has no idea what a beach or a beach resort looks like.
>>38044805>I’m going to make (what?)Small house for Kae>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)warmer
>>38044962Hopefully Kae and Lirael will help guide us.
>>38044805>I’m going to change the weather (to what?)>Warmer and sunnier, so we can ogle sunbathing Rainya while working>normal house for Kae to live in for now
>>38044777>fully staffed of courseShe's in for a rude awakening when she realizes that we can't actually make staff yet. Never bought that xp thingy.Unless she doesn't mind the place being staffed by sea monsters from Oceanic Dream. I don't think we can do that, but maybe?
>>38044805>I’m going to change the weather Sunny>Mind link with Lirael so we know what she likes.>Make a castle/base.>Sports/training stuff>Kae, It's my first realm that will take time.
>>38044986Definitly. And now let it sink in that Kae and Lirael will be our only guidance in what this should look like.I'm just saying, we are going to spend the day here then. Week, really.
>>38045009Its not actually that expensive to make a staff. But more importantly, I'm not inclined to create fully sentient people, because thats what they are, just to be Kaes servants.
>>38044962Rainya must have some idea.
>>38045031How would she? Not even Shee had ever seen a ocean before she got Oceanic Dream, and Rainya actually grew up in Dust Town.
>>38044996>>38044906>>38044874>>38044873>>38044823Shouldn't you guys vote to make a beach as well?My understanding of the island was that it was pretty much just a rock in the middle of the sea with no real beach to speak of.Why would Rainya specifically mention making a beach if there was already one and it was just a matter of changing the weather?
>>38045009I had a weird thought of the place being staffed by Chibi-Shees. Just seeing their vibrant red hair dashing about.
>>38045055Why else would she want to see it unless she has some idea of what it is? She must have seen pictures in an old book or something.
>>38045059Pretty sure creating a spot for Rainya to sunbathe on is implied. Doesn't need to be a full beach.
>>38044873>>38045059a beach would be good yes
>>38045029We can make beings that are pretty much just robots.
>>38045074Because leaving votes up to interpretation and implication like that is such a kind thing to do to your QM.
>>38045073She has a idea its a thing that exists.But she has no real idea of what it looks like.
ok, 3d20 for willpower rolls, 1 for weather, 1 for beach and 1 for house.
Rolled 1, 6, 11 = 18 (3d20)>>38045091
Rolled 16, 17, 4 = 37 (3d20)>>38045091
Rolled 7, 3, 3 = 13 (3d20)>>38045091
Rolled 20, 9, 1 = 30 (3d20)>>38045091>>38045080Possibly? Would need to adjust the default then. By default the population is fully sentient and lives normal lives.
Rolled 15, 18, 15 = 48 (3d20)>>38045091
Rolled 20, 9, 20 = 49 (3d20)>>38045091
>>38045122Anon why you so late?
>>38045137Fucking pictured captchas on a mobile device.
>>38045163>why?You do know that 1s and 20s don't actually cause criticals unless there are more than one of them for the same thing within three rolls, right? That 1 is literally meaningless right there.
Pally, does Oceanic Dream interact with our realm the same way it does with the real world, or with our dream world?
Pally when we will be able to get another aspect?
>>38045194You don't know yet, you'll find out after experimenting a bit, and maybe buying some more Oceanic Dream.
Wait, would wiahcrafting apply here?
>>38045190too many systems on too many quests, i got confused with in were it was an auto fail but not a crit fail, thank god its not like that
>>38045161At least the captcha will present the challenge. I'm not sure if it's because my phone is WP8.1 but the only way I can post mobile is if I set it with my pass.
>>38045238Interesting. So we need to buy some Oceanic Dream and try to create a monster in here.
Does Ruler of Shadows have higher ranks or is it maxed out at 1?
“How about a beach-front house?” you ask Kae“As a holiday home?” says Kae “Sure, but the weathers a bit...”“I know” you say “Let me fix that first.” And you start to concentrate.The weather starts to calm and the thick storm clouds grow thinner, eventually fading away to a few hazy wisps, you see a beautiful green sky above you, with a bright red sun shining down on you. This takes you about a half-hour“Uh Shee?” says Kae “What’re you doing?”“What?” you say “I cleared up the storm and its sunny.”“The colours Shee” says Kae “the colours, have you ever seen a sunny sky?”“Not really” you say “These just....feel right” Indeed, they feel like home, the way a sky and sun ought to look.“I think Kae is right” says Rainya, as Lirael facepalms and Dev looks a bit unsure “The pictures I’ve seen are yellow sun blue sky.”“Picky picky” you say, concentrating, changing the colours takes a few minutes “There, better?”“Much” says Rainya.“The suns supposed to be...oh never mind” says Kae “bright butter yellow is fine for now, now about the beach?”“Right” you say, concentrating. Around you the island expands, growing and growing and growing....An hour later you have an island that looks about 3 miles across, and you’re shaking a bit from the effort.“Ok” you say “time for some sand...”And 10 minutes later there is sand, lots of it, and dust, because that’s what goes with sand, right?Lirael picks up a handful of sand and lets it run through her fingers “This is kinda...yuck” she says.“Finer sand” suggests Kae “And no dust, please?”Everyone’s a critic... You clean up the sand, and then get started on the house. It looks...like a nice house in the hive would, maybe a bit like Ash’s house?“That’s not really what I was hoping for” admits Kae “How about I make an illusion and you copy me ok?”What is this, back-seat world-design, who is the Creator around here? “Ok fine” you say.
Deep inside yourself you can feel another, familiar crystal thing growing, huh, maybe you’re about to incorporate a new aspect into yourself. You think something have changed in your body to. You flex experimentally and a tentacle appears...out of the palm of your hand. Huh, cool.After making things follow Kae’s illusion like a paint by numbers you look critically at the wooden house “Are you sure?” you say “It looks kinda...flimsy.”“It’s a holiday home” says “Kae “And it looks fine, I take it the fridge is stocked, how about some drinks?”“Yes” you say “The fridge is fully stocked, absolutely” well, it is by the time she walks over to it, by the Five these tiny details are going to kill you. Rainya, Dev and Lirael sit down in the chairs you have made.“And the wardrobe?” asks KaeYes Mistress, no Mistress, would you like a footbath Mistress? You grumble internally, as you stock the wardrobe with all the clothes you can remember from your last shopping trip, and a bit mischievously, the only swimsuits in Kae and Rainyas size are going to be the skimpiest damn things you can think of.“Really Shee?” comes Kae’s voice from inside “Really?”You sit down in a chair, lean back and stare at the beautiful sky “Princess” you whisper to yourself “you can suck my tentacles...”---And that’s it for today, thanks for playing. Next thread is midday tomorrow, which is about X hours away. For your actions in this thread you gain 12 XP.
>>38045480And by X hours away I mean 13, obviously
>>38045480Thanks for running Pally, that last update killed my from laughter.But we totally need a Green Sun. Doesn't matter, they'll learn to like it.
>>38045480>Deep inside yourself you can feel another, familiar crystal thing growing, huh, maybe you’re about to incorporate a new aspect into yourself. You think something have changed in your body to. You flex experimentally and a tentacle appears...out of the palm of your hand. Huh, cool.OH FUCK YEAH!Did we also get the one where our biology starts to resemble cybernetics? That was my favorite Impossibility combo power.
>>38045480thanks pally thread was fun
>>38045548We need more high-level artifice.
>>38045480Kae doesn't feel bad that Shee has no idea what sky/sun/sand should be like? Imperialist fae bastards. >>38045548Please no. Cybernetics is fucking weird/creepy.
>>38045451>>38045530Maxed out at 1 rank, though peripherals might be a thing.
>>38045571>Please no. Cybernetics is fucking weird/creepy.>Impying you get a choice
>>38045571>Not wanting impossible magic biology cybernetics stuffAnon pls.
>>38045480Did we level up impossibility again? We're at five now right? Can you show us what aspects we can get so we can talk about them, if we are getting them soon.>>38045584Considering they are our power I'd say we'd have some choice.
>>38045480Thanks for running Pally.>You flex experimentally and a tentacle appears...out of the palm of your hand. Huh, cool.This is clearly our sign to get more tentacles.
>>38045535glad to be on service
>>38045480Can Shee extend tentacles out of tentacles now?I'd love to see her extend a tentacle out of her hand and then extend 3 "finger" tentacles from the sides near the end to really grab things good. Send one of the branching tentacles out of each hand. That'd be cool.
>>38045548>>38045571Gotta agree here. Fuck cybernetics.
>>38045548Where are you getting this from?
>>38045610My understanding of the gift mutations is that they just happen due to our aspects and there really isn't any choice to have them not happen.
>>38045650Well we control what power we level We'd need artifice for the cybernetics. Besides why would we need steel when flesh is stronger?
>>38045649Pally presented some of his ideas at the end of another thread. >>38045650The choice would be to not advance Artifice.
So does wishcrafting factor in to what we just did? Seems like it would.
>>38045680It should. At least in the direct requests.
Why do people hate the impossibility cybernetics so much? It's not like it suddenly gets rid of our physical upgrades or abilities. Probably wouldn't even be able to tell something was up with Shee unless you started cutting cross sections out of her and putting them under microscopes.
>>38045719Thats not what it does. It would be much more visible then that, its a primarily cosmetic change to begin with.
>>38045671>>38045675And you think level matters to gift mutations because...? We're going to get some level of natural cybernetics just from L1 Artifice, accept it. Maybe don't choose the eldritch horror aspect if you aren't comfortable with a bit of physical mutation.>>38045671>Besides why would we need steel when flesh is stronger?>Natural cybernetics>Steel
>>38045757So basically what you're saying is we have to have this no matter what?Bullshit Pally has always given us a choice on these sorts of things.
>>38045719Because it's a major cosmetic change. I don't want Shee looking like Robocop. Simple as.Why do you want them so much?
>>38045757>We're going to get some level of natural cybernetics just from L1 ArtificeIts not "natural cybernetics". Its mechanical features. Like, robot eyes and the like.
>>38045741>>38045810>Thats not what it does.>My idea is how it will lookAre you OP or AA?Then you can't make that statement, because you don't know what it does.There might be external changes, it might be entirely internal, who knows? Not I, and I can admit it and trust in the two of them to make something good that isn't a big 'fuck you' from a mechanics standpoint.>>38045791We did have a choice. We already made it, though.
>>38045798Because I personally like it and think it could open up some cool stuff and even if we do get it and it looks absolutely ridiculous for some reason, we have Shadow of the Depths.
>>38045827>Then you can't make that statement,Yes I can. >You begin to exhibit mechanical featuresQuoted Pallys own words.
*IF* Shee unpacked the crystal thing and picked an Aspect now I was thinking of offers the following 4 Aspects.As always, Aspect choices are based upon recent actions.Aspect of EmotionYou are passion and spirit, wild and untamed.This Gift grants bonuses to Fellowship rolls to inspire emotions in others.You increase any emotion-based bonuses you gain.You suffer a penalty to Will rolls to resist emotion-based effects.You must spend additional psychic energy when using powers, as you throw yourself fully into anything you do.The bonuses and penalties grow at higher levels.Aspect of GivingYou live to help others.Grant a larger bonus to another’s roll when aiding or helping them. You gain a bonus on any roll to heal others but you suffer penalties to intimidate or interrogate others.The bonuses and penalties grow at higher levels.Aspect of InevitabilityStruggle against you is fruitless.All nearby foes suffer a penalty to all d20 rolls and defences. However you must pass a Will roll to flee, even in the face of overwhelming odds.The penalties and Will DC grow at higher levels.Aspect of FamilyYour world consists of those you care forThis Aspect means that you gain a bonus to all rolls when using non-harmful powers to help, benefit or aid those close to you. You add the same bonus to all combat rolls when fighting alongside those you care about.The list of those you care for may change over time.The context of your affection may be possessive, or not. It might be romantic, or not.However you suffer penalties to harm those you care about, as well as take more damage if they attack you, even if they are deceived or mind-controlled.Gifts you have now or gain in the future will include the ability to bolster, heal or monitor allies, or may simply become more effective against those who harm your loved ones.If anons want we can vote on this (wait until I call it)Or we can leave it until later
>>38045856>Aspect of Inevitability>Struggle against you is fruitless.>All nearby foes suffer a penalty to all d20 rolls and defences. However you must pass a Will roll to flee, even in the face of overwhelming odds.>The penalties and Will DC grow at higher levels.I really like this, especially in combination with Impossibility and Corruption.
>>38045856Not a big fan on any of those. But if we get them, probably Emotion.Leave the voting for tomorrow, a lot of people have already left. Would be pretty unfair to them.
>>38045637>Can Shee extend tentacles out of tentacles now?Yes you can tentacle-ception8 tentacles at 9ft each? you can have 1 72ft long tentacle if you wantOr have some out of your palms to swing spiderman style etc.I plan on having Shee try a few things next thread.
>>38045856Emotion doesn't really fit Shee. As much as I'd like it to. She's pretty cool and business like most of thx time.
>>38045856I like the look of Giving and Family
>>38045827No i'm pretty sure mechanical is verbatim from pally, as to we already made a choice? Unless it gives us a mechanical advantage without loss I can't see it auto passing. Getting deformed when our illusion is down would require a vote surely. Only reason Tentacles went by without a hitch is because them coming from anywhere is useful with no drawbacks.>>38045856Family seems most Shee to me.
>>38045899Are you reading a different quest? Shee is extremely emotional.
>>38045856Leave until later
>>38045856Inevitability or Family for me, probably Inevitability because it's pretty rad.>>38045899The extra cost to all psychic powers as an increasing penalty is pretty irritating too.>>38045920>Opinions
>>38045888usually we get only 4-5 early voters anyways. Remember our first aspect had only 7-8 votes?
>>38045920I don't know where you're seeing it. She seems almost detached from most things.
>>38045953Thats not the point, its still within the running quest. While this one is over. its unfair to people who couldn't know there is a choice still running.
Cybernetics mutationsYes, some are visible, and some are not. High-end cybernetics are designed to look *normal*.Cheap cybernetics or those sacrificing aesthetics for raw power (huge arms) are obvious.For Shee Artifice + Corruption would start out subtle: Eyes that can see infrared, a retractable datajack etc.Anything major I'd put to a vote as Shee has 9some) control over what her body would grow.
>>38045856Family or giving please...
>>38045974>Dread Gazing Quinn out of anxiousness>storming out to beat that guy who hurt Rainya to a pulp out of anger, despite realising it doesn't change anythingJust two examples. Most importantly, if she weren't emotional. She wouldn't be offered the Aspect of Emotions.
>Get Giving to ridiculously high levels>It becomes literally impossible to intimidate anyone>Even when we go full-blown Lord of Shadows and are tearing everything apart as a horrifying shadow tentacle abomination, people just stand there looking unimpressed
Yeah, I hope we can settle this tomorrow mornign when not so many moralfags are here who want to choose shit because it sounds like the "good" option. Because they aren't paying attention to there being no such thing.
>>38045991On which side of the spectrum to the available aspects fall?
>>38045991So, are you doing voting now or later?
>>38045996>>38045996We're not voting right nos are we?
>>38045991Are there skill caps?Is it based on max modifier?
>>38046033Not being good or bad for me. Family seems the most like Shee atm. After all her team are her family and her world. Ichor has already proven family=/= good or nice.
>>38046037Later. We're not going to do a vote after people have already been told the thread is over and can't vote anymore. its one thing with XP, because everyone knows thats when we do it. But a regular vote shouldn't come without announcement after the end of the session.
>>38046041No pally will probably have the vote early as hell tomorrow while I'm asleep so I don't even get a say.
>>38046089Wake up earlier then.
>>38045920She feels them but is not led by them.>>38045856I think it would be best to let the thread have an hour to get players then ask. After the mess that was the domain vote in the last PoJ thead let's gather the players for this.
>>38046114Why so antagonistic anon?
>>38046009And I'd direct you to the scene in this thread where Lirael lost it when she remembered her mother being burned. Shee barely showed any feeling. It was kind of weird.
>>38046117>She feels them but is not led by them.>>38046009That is provably wrong. Read the actual quest before saying nonsense like this.
>>38046089Yeah. It still pisses me off that one of our aspects got decided with 4 votes.
>>38046034Emotion/Inevitability - *bad*Giving/Family - *good*>>38046037>>38046041Voting Later>>38046044>Are there skill caps?Cybernetics do not offer seperate skills, they offer bonuses to existing skills, they have flat bonuses>Is it based on max modifier?There would be XP-bought upgrades with a max modifier, probably Con-based.
>>38046131I think he's saying more along the lines of, "Oh good I don't have to stay up! Goodnight I'm going to bed">>38046156Yeah. CHARACTER FOUNDATION Shifting! LETS DO IT WITH 3-4 GUYS!
>>38046156>things that never happened
>>38046163Impossibility had very few votes compared to Corruption vote. like 7-8 compared to the twenty plus?
>>38046133Uh, that was more Shee having no idea what the fuck was going on. How do you think she should have reacted to it emotionally?
>>38046033>Anyone that chooses an aspect I don't like is a moralfag and they're just choosing it cause they think it's good!>>38046139The latter is an example for Family. Your opinion, and his, are both subjective, and both of them are equally valid. If someone feels differently than you, deal with it.>>38046181Impossibility is also the best aspect and I'm glad it was chosen.
>>38046181Still wasn't decided with 4 votes, it was decided with 7-8 voters. Which isn't that much less than the regular voter number here.Which is usually 14 or so.
>>38046193Like she was trying to comfort a child rather than like she was reading a shopping list.
>>38046181Corruption got ~10 votes for it in it's vote. Impossibility had ~8 votes and was nearly unanimous. It's not as big of a gap as you're trying to make it seem.
>>38046224So vote family so she can have some of her humanity back. People get keep selecting "Evil" traits.
>>38046246That has nothing to do with how Pally wrote that scene.And also your post just proved my point about moralfags.
>>38046268When the QM comes out and says "this is evil and this is good", your point kind of falls apart.
>>38046216>The latter is an example for Family.At best its ALSO a example for family.It very clearly shows Shee is very much guided by emotions.
>>38046158Given how players have voted so far which aspect(separated from the bonuses and maluses they give) do you think fit shee the most out of this vote?>>38046216I like it too, but I hate that people are gunning for straight *bad* aspects to be edgy.>>38046221Actually I just went back and counted 5 votes 4 impossibilities and 1 no. Thread 22>>38046238I meant vote total and see above post.>>38046268Ok edgefag whatever. I'm voting for family because I see it as best fit.
>>38046268>moralfagThat guy is nothing of the sort. He's a manipulative chode who is playing politician, saying anything and everything without a care as to if it's true or not, in an attempt to get people to vote for the things he wants.
>>38046289>your point kind of falls apartIt really doesn't? My point is people voting for something because they want the "good" choice.Which is exactly what he just proved is the case.
>>38046314>people who like things I don't do it because they want "edge"Or maybe because its fitting for the characters behaviour sofar?IMPOSSIBLE
>>38046343If people start slinging at your a moralfag I'm going to counter it with edge. Good for goose is good for gander.
>>38046314My personal opinion would be Family.Despite my inability to convey it well I see Shee as being very caring towards her close friends (i.e. *family*).As always, I prefer to let the players decide rather than railroad.
>>38046314The concept of "bad" aspects wasn't even a thing when we made the first choice. Nor was it really one when we made the second.Because only one person knew it was a actual categorie.So no one could have chosen Impossiblity nor Corruption for being "bad", especially since there is nothing that implies "badness" about Impossibility.
>>38046381Well I mean.. Corruption just sounds bad on its face.
>>38046033>I'm complaining that not everyone wants to be edgy.>>38046139Acting on an emotion and being lead by your emotions are not the same thing. When cops killed lots of dusters we kept our emotions in check, that's more feels than someone hurt our friend but Family covers the Rainya thing anyway.
>>38046402I voted corruption because it is my fetish
>>38046375Considering several posts literally said they want it for being "good", and no one has ever said he wants one of the choices for being "bad". No, my moralfag is justified, while you edge accusation is conjured from nowhere.
>>38046416>When cops killed lots of dusters we kept our emotions in checkNo we didn't. We held a speech about how they should direct their rage at the Governor.We didn't hold our emotions in check at all.
Wait, are people seriously trying to ascribe "edgy" or "moralfag" tags to the aspects now? You can make an argument for every aspect being whichever of those you want.
>>38046377I honestly agree, I'm kinda surprised we haven't picked it yet.>>38046381Corruption ont he face of it with it's description didn't scream anything but *bad* to me. A certain game didn't help either. But I do agree impossibility on it's face was pretty close to neutral.>>38046422Only one anon and that was well after moralfag accusations were being thrown about.first moralfag post>>38046033first I want shee to be good post>>38046246
>>38046416>Acting on an emotion and being lead by your emotions are not the same thing.Shee has been led by her emotions several times.When she Dread Gazed Quinn, or when she invaded deeper into Charuns mind to get the memories of her father. Just two examples.
>>38046422I want family because I think it fits the characters and I love the buffs for allies.Inevitability sounds like it'll get us killed when the dice turn on us in a bad spot.Giving seems.. okay. Love the healing/aiding bonuses.. not a fan of the interrogation penalties.Emotion sounds like it will encourage us to act retarded.
>>38046472>Only one anonIn this thread. I'm sorry if this is the first time you join us, I guess in that case you can't know this is part of a longer ongoing debate.
>>38046486>Emotion sounds like it will encourage us to act retarded.Thats more what Inevitability does.Emotion doesn't really do more than have Shee give it her all. Which isn't really retarded, not like for example Valour was.
>>38046502Anon, seriously, stop. If you ever had a point, it's been lost as a result of your behavior.>>38046526Emotions encourage more dumbass behavior than any other force in the universe. Science fact.
>>38046547Are you telling me that the caring for family is not "emotional"?
>QM starts calling things *bad* whenever they seem to focus on debuffs or are just more chaotic>People start swinging this around as proof of questionable morality and saying that it makes the mc "edgy"Fuck. Family may be *good*, but family stuff has been played as mafia-type leg breaker shit half the time it's come up in the quest so far.
>>38046578>Family may be *good*Everyone who thinks that hasn't poayed attention to Ichor.Family Aspect is the part that will make us off Liraels parents to keep her.
>>38046460Yeah but you know how some people throw shit when the vote isn't going their way.>>38046502Yes it is. Still moralfag got thrown out first without and prompting of good or bad before. As such It's being a douche.>>38046578Yeah hence the * meaning it can be played either way. I just see Shee with a family aspect over the others right now. Shee is very family oriented.
>>38046585>Still moralfag got thrown out first without and prompting of good or bad beforeThe prompting was people complaining about "evil" Aspect choices. Ever since the first vote.It has been a consistent argument that not picking what the they like is making Shee "evil and bad".Just remind you how the hissy fits thrown over Corruption.
>>38046381Not a huge fan of dividing the aspects into good/evil either, it's mostly there (at this point) as a system to give two more stereotypically 'light' aspects and two more stereotypically 'dark' aspects each time this comes up. It's really more what you do with it that matters, I feel.It used to matter more, but it was changed before the system ever made an appearance.>>38046402But it's not, it's just that people who normally use it aren't very nice. You can be just as good or evil as you want with any aspect.I don't really like Emotion just due to the fact that I like Shee as she is now for the most part and I feel like choosing Emotion would result in emotions being somewhat exaggerated in the narrative or people being led around by them a little too much.>>38046421Remove thyself from my sight, cretin!>>38046583You are talking entirely out of your own ass.>>38046578It's typically seen as a more good thing, but it doesn't really matter. It could be as good or as evil as we make it.>>38046615Those were semi-justified as people believe it would be passively mind-raping our friends and that, well, that wouldn't be very desirable at all.
>>38046583Provided their still alive and not charred briquettes. Even then if they would stay on planet it'd be fine. >>38046615It didn't start back up until moralfag got thrown around. The good bad nature was ignored until then. Whoever flung that first shit pile started it up again.>>38046638Thanks for weighing in AA. What you take on the available aspects?
>>38046638>Those were semi-justified as people believe it would be passively mind-raping our friends´No, they weren't semi-justified at all. Because it assumed we had no control over our own power. Which is retarded.And the entire thing focused solely on the name.
>>38046583Pally said above that Inevitability/Emotion are *bad* and Family/Giving are *good*.This is just reinforcing my belief that good/bad labels for aspects aren't about morality as much as a descriptor of how they mechanically function and relative control levels within the narrative.
>>38046638>I feel like choosing Emotion would result in emotions being somewhat exaggerated in the narrativeI don't really see Shees influence on other people being much more emphasised now than before.
Still think "Corruption" should have been called "Assimilation" or just "Change" or something that doesn't have bad connotations and doesn't immediately make people think of fetish games...
>>38046693Which is what some anons were saying meant we had to have cybernetics because of our powers even if we didn't want them. I think most people saw the overwrite as the aspects malus.>>38046722I think he meant Shee doing more things based on emotion rather than sense like certain resistance leaders we know.>>38046742Probably would have helped.
>>38046638>It used to matter more, but it was changed before the system ever made an appearance.The issue is that even mentioning this being a thing now created the situation where people feel compelled to vote for choices to be "good", because they don't want the "bad" choices.And that is a problem.When the argument about the merit of an Aspect is dominated, as it has been for the last two, by "good vs. Evil" perception, that distracts from the actual important part of what actually defines Shee more.
>>38046742Fetish games?cor·rup·tionkəˈrəpSH(ə)n/nounnoun: corruption; plural noun: corruptions1.dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery."the journalist who wants to expose corruption in high places"synonyms: dishonesty, unscrupulousness, double-dealing, fraud, fraudulence, misconduct, crime, criminality, wrongdoing; Moreantonyms: honestythe action of making someone or something morally depraved or the state of being so."the word “addict” conjures up evil and corruption"synonyms: immorality, depravity, vice, degeneracy, perversion, debauchery, dissoluteness, decadence, wickedness, evil, sin, sinfulness, ungodliness; formalturpitude"his fall into corruption"antonyms: morality, purityarchaicdecay; putrefaction."the potato turned black and rotten with corruption"
>>38046780>like certain resistance leaders we knowI'm pretty sure Six doesn't do that shit because he's overly emotional.
>>38046780>>38046742What would be an alternative name for Family?
>>38046742"Control" fits what it does way more than "Corruption" does.
>>38045887Dude, an inevitable impossibility transforming shit left and right.This is stuff of legends, man. Shee could become an urban legend, no, a real legend with this combination.
>>38046815Emotions can be hurt feeling and bloody vengeance as much as a screaming berserker. After all wanting to hurt people for no real gain means either you're a sociopath or very emotional at a deep level. Also Charun and Kae's dad.>>38046841Multitargeted Yandere for one. Mutual possessiveness for another. Brotherhood. I'm working on more.
>>38046809>The dictionary doesn't list the fetish shit that has "corruption" in the title and it doesn't mention any of the corruption porn either, so it must not exist!Yeah, nah.
>>38046447>We held a speech about how they should direct their rage at the Governor.That was directing our emotions not being led by them (the weakness that comes with that aspect)>>38046479Anything related to Shees father could be called family. I'll need to reread the Dread Gazed Quinn part but It's as easy to argue Family as it is Emotions if Shee is standing up for her friends.
I'm surprised nobody flipped a shit about Shee making nothing but slutty swimsuits for Kae to wear.
>>38046912Not.. really what I meant the Fetish games was more of a question I have no idea what you're talking about.Corruptions dictionary definition conveys negative connotations to anyone who knows it.Corruption is never seen in a good or neutral light. It's a charged word.
>>38046841I think Family is pretty fine. Although its a bit misleading since it isn't literally about "Family", but the point gets across.I don't think you can make caring about other sound bad.Maybe, Possessivene. But that focuses completly on one possible aspect.
>>38046942Why would they? Shee has always been pretty lewd.If Dev would have angered her, he'd gotten similar.
>>38046980>Dev in a dicksockI'd be totally ok with this.
>>38046684I'd prefer not to upset anyone by having any more of an opinion.I like all of the aspects to some degree. Emotion is my least favorite, but even that one I'm probably fine with.>>38046693In the original write-up, it actually did passively mind-rape people we spent a lot of time around with no way to shut it off. It was changed, because that was an awful drawback.>>38046742Assimilation is too borg, Change might work.>>38046844That also might work.>>38046722It might, it might not, I don't expect it'll be anything bad, but I can't get that niggling little doubt out of my head that I won't like it much.>>38046784Yeah, but there isn't really any name for the two categories that wouldn't carry that same connotation. The English language is a problem sometimes.
>>38046941>Anything related to Shees father could be called familyNot really no.She doesn't actually remember him. By no stretch could her feelings for him be as "caring".
>>38047009>In the original write-upAnd if it would have been in this one, I might have agreed. But it didn't.>>38047009>Yeah, but there isn't really any name for the two categoriesWhy do there need to be two categories?
>>38046942Payback is a bitch and so is Shee when you tick her off.>>38047001If he tweaks Shee off like Kae did it could happen.>>38047009Fair enough. I'll be up at 7 pulling for family, because it look like best fit to me. I mean it's been up 3 times.
>>38046900Family as Brotherhood feels a bit closer to what it entails.
>>38047009>there isn't really any name for the two categoriesI would have considered "personal" and "invasive". Since how it affects others seems to be the big difference here.>>38047053If we vote for it tomorrow, I expect landslide victory for family. Maybe a Emotion or Inevitability vote here and there, but especially the latter isn't really appropriate, since it overlaps way too much with Imposibility.
>>38047077Friendship, really. Might as well call the thing by its name. its quite literally the Power of Friendship.
>>38047040In Pally's original write up.is was described as such actually.>>38047077I think it'd be best fit for alt name>>38047087>"personal" and "invasive". Good one!I do hope family wins.
>>38047009>Emotion is my least favoriteI would have thought Inevitability. Why Emotion?Is it because Lust would fall under its spectrum?
>>38047010It still shows an intrest in her family, what emotion do you feel Shee was acting on when she did that?>>38047077>>38047107Comradeship?
>>38047209>It still shows an intrest in her familyThats the problem witht he misleading name. The Aspect isn't about literal Family. Its about "people you strongly care for".. And caring strongly for him isn't what made Shee want those memories so bad.Because again, she never actually met the man.
>>38047254It's still what he reprisented to her. When said "people you strongly care for" are offten when Shee acts on her emotions.I acknowledge that /tg/ being /tg/ is a large part of why this happens but it is what I see happening.
>>38047040>Why do there need to be two categories?It's an organization thing and a bit of an artefact from the original system.>And if it would have been in this one, I might have agreed. But it didn't.Eeeh, yeah, but players tend to be paranoid about any possible thing that could go wrong or have negative side effects, even if they're unlikely.I don't think it was so much moralfaggotry as fear of hurting people we're close to and not wanting to take the risk of that, at least.>>38047087I'm not entirely sure what you mean by personal and invasive.>>38047196I have a new reason to not want it.Don't consider trying to pull anything like that anon, there are rules in place.
>>38047458the pe drain doesn't help either.
>>38047458Well, we now do have some xp to spend.Granted Shee is largely tapped outShee (14)Lireal (25)Rainya (43)Dev(46)Is there a skill cap on skills AA? I see a lot of skills maxed at 5 ranks, or am I missing it in the document?
>>38047711Can't wait for Kae to join that list.
>>38047779Can't wait for us to pick up some first age martial arts from her as well as sorcery.
>>38047779Yeah.Should we have dev push some agility, or some maybe other skills? I know computer use meshes well.Put him as the mech and drone handler?Kae will really allow us to do more, but she is going to be harder to role play for us.I think we should head back to duster town and use our new fellowship abilities to expand our contacts there.
>>38047692The...what?>>38047711If it's under Skills, assume it's capped at 5. If you mean certain Gifts, some of them have individual caps, and some of those may or may not be 5. Feats usually cap at either 5 or 1, with the exception of Mastercraft which has a cap of 4.
>>38047879I think he meant psychic energy
>>38047840agreed we need more people and eyes around here. that gate almost got opened on our watch. We should also let the resistance know what's up with the Fae army and gate building.>>38047879Psychic energy PE drains. Emotions make our cast costs higher.
Can Kae do that thing where a a fay gives someone fay powers but they don't have to obay the fay? I know it's illeagal but I think she'll be willing to overlook that now.
>>38047952you mean that Imbued thing? Maybe, depends if she knows how and how much it takes out of her. Dev would benefit from it most I think.
>>38047879Yeah, I meant normal skills, I couldn't find anything and assumed I was blind.Well I know Lireal will likely push the variety of vampire abilites to max before getting skills.I know Rainya people want to get lot of clones.I am not sure on Dev, other then push tech side a bit more.>>38047952Gifted? we might get rules on that when it shows up.
>>38047986Could have sworn gifted was mostly just shackling people with already potent abilities. Thought Imbuing was the fae giving out powers ups.
>>38047982Yes Imbued thanks. I'm not saying it has to be done but I like to know what's on the table,
>>38048039Here is the quote:Kae smirks “Well from a certain point of view, their loyalty is their greatest asset – it’s magically bound into them so they can’t disobey a direct order, though they can interpret the command given, and some try to rebel anyway. As to their powers, ah the Gifted come from a variety of sources, some had magic or psychic or champion powers and they’ve just been recruited as-is. Others are ordinary folk granted powers, though after the Liberation of Salvia the Court put a ban on creating a true Imbued – too powerful, too risky, so the Gifted are a compromise, not enough power or free will to rebel, just tough enough to be useful. Their powers depend on the fae who made them, the more powerful they are the more unstable, most fae pick a purpose for their pawn and stick with it: guardian, spy, hunter and so on, some pick a theme such as an element. I can’t tell you what their powers will be, because they’re too varied.”
>>38048076Well if she can gift without leashing that'd be good. I daresay an Imbued could end badly.
Some of the Gifted are actually just people who had powers already so the fae just leashed them without giving more power.I bet the champion of Baalzamon is one of those Gifted who is planning to fuck over his fae masters hard.
>>38048211Likely there are all sorts of limits, it may be like Lirael's ability to make Dhampires and Graced.Enough ranks and they can, not enough and they can't.
