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/AnAspiringQMThe five of you relax on the beach for a few hours. Or at least, some of you relax. Kaelyn and Lirael find relaxing on the beach easy, simply lying down in the sun, though Kaelyn bugs you until you create a proper swimming costume for her. You’re tired enough to simply flop down, you didn’t realise making things was so hard. Rainya is a little more hesitant but eventually lies down on a towel next to you.Dev tries lying down, manages to stay still for two minutes, then he’s up and walking along the shore “where are you going?” you ask.“I’m going exploring” he says “I need something to do.”You and Rainya exchange a look and then you say to Kaelyn and Lirael “will you two be ok here?”Kaelyn gives you a lazy wave and Lirael says “Hmm, sun” You leave them to it as you and Rainya go exploring the rocky island with Dev. You catch up to him as he’s scrambling over boulders.You and Rainya easily catch up to him, using your newfound ability to extend your tentacles from any part of your body makes climbing really very easy, and you lift Rainya up the harder parts of the climb.“Having fun?” you ask Dev, looking down as he climbs up the boulder you and Rainya are standing on“Just, need to be doing something” he says, grunting as he pulls himself up“I thought this was your day off” you point out.
“And if I was at the Waystation I might be watching the holo” says Dev “Instead, I’m in this whatever place you’ve made, and I’m exploring-woah!”You grab Devs arm in your hand as he slips and you start to get dragged down with him, damn you keep forgetting that despite your strength you’re still smaller than most people. You lash out with your other hand and with your tentacles, grabbing the rocks around you to brace yourself, and then you pull Dev up. You feel a pain in the hand grabbing the rock, you realise with an irritated glance that you grabbed a sharp stone spar, and even your tough skin can still be cut.“Thanks” Dev says “That could have been bad.” You’re not really listening, instead you’re examining your hand, and how the blood is flowing back into the wound, sealing it up behind itself and the wound fading, until there’s not even a scar. You wonder why you’re not freaked out by this, and then you remember: because that’s the way it should be. I mean really, why should blood not go back into your body, that’s where it’s supposed to be after all.“Hmm, oh yeah” you say to Dev, looking at the sheer drop over the edge of the boulder “yeah that could have been bad.” You’re aware that Rainya is giving you a funny look, but Dev either isn’t bothered by your attention being elsewhere, or hasn’t really noticed.“You can’t just lie in the sun and relax?” you ask Dev, he shakes his head.“Can’t seem to” he says “Too much energy, gotta do something, besides, can you?” He has a point, despite still feeling tired from making...everything, you want to be up and doing something. You can also feel that crystal...thing in the back of your mind, with the promise of a new aspect to incorporate into yourself.What do you want to do now? You don’t have a watch but it’s probably late morning, maybe midday. You have nothing else planned today, though tomorrow you will be meeting the black market guy that Tenley knows.
Shee's To Do List1. Activate psychic power (enough time has passed, the risk is no minimal)2. Check with Gambon about contact with the fighters3. Talk to Garrax (reunited)4. Talk to Yonsul5. 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?9. Rainya and Shee time (location? Go on a date? Other?)10. Open weird crystal box thing (Aspect vote)11.

>>38057071>10. Open weird crystal box thing (Aspect vote)Lets get it done
>>38057071>10. Open weird crystal box thing (Aspect vote)
>>38057071>10. Open weird crystal box thing (Aspect vote)then>Relax on the beach with your friends
>>38057071>10. Open weird crystal box thing (Aspect vote)Definitly the date afterwards.
>>38057069>10. Open weird crystal box thing (Aspect vote)
>>38057071>10. Open weird crystal box thing (Aspect vote)What do people thin of Brotherhood, Fellowship or Comradeship as alternate names to family.
>>38057091I vote C
>>38057091Fellowship sounds best if people are really determined to change it.
>>38057091I think that out of all the aspects that should have had different names, Family is one of the least. Also I think that Comradeship sounds dumb.
>>38057091Fellowship is pretty fitting actually. But since i focuses mostly on caring for these people, instead of getting moral bonuses or such, I think Family works fine.
>>38057096My problem was Family felt like it overlapped to much with the mother, and it contained to many offspring confrontations.
>>38057091How bout Bond?
>>38057071Not sure which is my vote so adding a seperate,>9. Rainya and Shee timeFor after we open the box.
>>38057101>it overlapped to much with the motherIts the same thing actually.We can totally have the same domains as the Five.
So keep/change Family?
>Aspect Effects>Currently NoneWouldn't this currently be the tentacles from anywhere thing?
>>38057117I say keep it. Its not a perfect fit, but sofar no perfect fit has been found, so no point changing it.>>38057119Thats a different thing. Thats a change to our tentacles ability not a Aspect effect.
>>38057117I vote to keep it. I don't see any major reason to change it honestly.
>>38057119I put it under the tentacles gift, but left that subsection under aspects in by mistake
>>38057117The only change would be Family : Subtitle to make it more a group of people rather than a nuclear family ideal.
Said it before I'll say it again: "Corruption" should be either "Change" or "Control". Either one of them fits what it actually does better.
>>38057091If we *have* to change the name, I'd prefer Kinship to one of those.
>>38057136Ah that's a nice word for it.>>38057132Those two words don't feel any better the Corruption.
>>38057128It already says in the description that its actually about people you care about.And technically none in the list of people it applies to is even Shees family. Rainya and Lirael might be at some point.>>38057132I'm okay with Corruption. I guess "Influence" would work too, but I see no reason to change it.
>>38057132Why bother changing it now? We'll still know what it is. That goes for Family as well really.
>>38057153Mostly to stop the people who keep going "Hurr it's a *bad* power! Corruption is a bad word it's *bad*!" even though what matters is what we do with it.
>>38057153The only thing I would change would be Emition into "Passion", since that fits it better. But I'm not sure if that even still matters, maybe we only get 3 Aspects anyway.
>>38057158Eh, there will always be retards. Can't really do anything about that. If they still don't get it, changing the name won't help it.
>>38057158Well, that doesn't really bother me. And like I said, we'll still know what it was.
>>38057153It seems to be including a small clarification after the powers name will help with this. It's just keeping it succinct and emphasized is necessary.
>>38057121>>38057124>>38057128So no need to change then anons? I know this wasn't a Pally vote but I'm picking up a no need vibe from this.
>>38057173Unless someone stumbles over a far more fitting word to describe it with, I think Family serves its purpose.Its not like Shee has a literal family to confuse it with, so it doesn't even matter.
As you take a moment to rest atop the boulder you reach deep inside yourself and nudge the crystal thing, causing it to unfold, you can choose 1 of 4 AspectsAspect 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.Vote will be called in 15 minutes
I just remembered, we need to give Yonsula heads-up about Kae not being around anymore.In case that brings trouble with Crimsonthorn.
I will call the vote for the new aspect AFTER a separate vote to rename existing and new aspect – this will be called in 10 minutes.So far only Corruption and Family has had requests for new names so only these will be included in the rename vote unless write-ins request renames for others.Now is the time to suggest new names for Aspects, so far I haveFamily: Kinship, Fellowship, Comradeship, BrotherhoodCorruption: Change, ControlThere will also be a *no change to name* option.In-character this will be the 3 Aspects balancing and changing themselves slightly with the introduction of the latest one.
>>38057188I think we can call the vote in 5min.Does anyone here intend to vote for anything but Family? Emotion, maybe but even thats unlikely.>>38057197"Influence" sounded good, but Corruption needs name changing even less than family, gonna pass on that one.
>>38057209>"Influence" sounded good, but Corruption needs name changing even less than family, gonna pass on that one.u serious, m8? It needs it more than Family if anything.
>>38057197I'm actually kind of liking Kinship.
>>38057215Not really. It describes what it does, I don't think it needs to have a "nice" name just because Shee intends to use it that way. Thats just silly whitewashing in my eyes.
>>38057197Family needs no change, not really.As for corruption we already have it so what's the point really?
>>38057209I don't see any reason to change the names. They do well enough at describing what the powers do.
>>38057209Voting "Kinship", Influence sounds like it covers a bit less than corruption. I'm sticking with corruption because it can lend to a more destructive side of our power. We have done a few questionable things for what we see as "better".
>>38057225I see no need either.
>>38057227The problem is Kinship is even more wrong, because it implies blood-ties more strongly than Family does.
>>38057209I really like inevitability and will vote for nothing but.
>>38057221Corruption is an inaccurate name. If Tentacles had some ridiculous name like "Prehensile Rape Limbs" a somewhat exaggerated analogy, I'm aware, there's no way people would be saying " I don't think it needs to have a 'nice' name just because Shee intends to use it that way. Thats just silly whitewashing in my eyes."
>>38057197Keep it as is. We know what they mean and not all consents translate into words anyway.We could always do the Family/Kinship/Fellowship/Comradeship/Brotherhood thing you see when a telepath want to use a word not native to their language.
>>38057209As far as I can tell there are only a couple anons that even have a problem with the names.
>>38057238I've heard it used in a similar meaning to deep friendship before, and one of it's meanings is affinity.
>>38057244>Corruption is an inaccurate name.Its not inaccruate though. it describes perfectly all that it does.Prehensile Rape Limb would be inaccurate because its also a Prehensile Smashing Limb.Its a faulty comparison, Corruption really is what the name describes, its jus that it has a negative connotation even if it can be used to a positive purpose.
>>38057238Not realy, I find kinship as a more Grow up together version of family. We have experienced the same things and that has made us closer together.
>>38057254So is Family. I'm not saying Kinship can't mean not blood-ties, it just has a even stronger association with it than Family does.Because your Kin are your relatives, by definition.Calling someone not related "your Kin" expresses closeness, but just in the same way as calling someone your family does. Its pretty much the same thing, except that not-related people can be your family even without blood-ties.
>>38057255That's not what connotations mean. Corruption is negative by denotation. It literally means negative change. If it was just negative connotations, then the denotation would only mean "change" and people would just have associated negative things with it, but that's not how it is. The definition is to change something negatively.

>>38057266>Keep the same>Keep the sameEven if they needed changing, all the options are worse.>>38057265Not really, it means alteration by definition.
Closing Aspect Name vote, opening New Aspect Vote>Emotion>Giving>Inevitability>FamilyNo change to Aspect names then
>>38057279You can use "alteration" instead of "corruption" in any sentence, but you cannot do the opposite. Squares and rectangles - one word is more specific. All corruption is alteration, but not all alteration is corruption.>>38057307>Inevitability
>>380573075 minute vote, just to be clear
>>38057307>Family>>38057313What the power does is however not "Alteration" because thats far too broad.Imposibility alters things too.
>>38057307>InevitabilityIt combos very well with what we already have.
>>38057307>FamilyI can't realy justify Shee not having either Family or Emotion, one of the two is mandatory to describe her, in my opinion.
>>38057313Corruption is only negative if it's wielder is a bad person. In this context, Corruption means "To make more like oneself, or one's ideal". Since Shee's ideal is fairly good, I don't see it as a bad thing.>>38057341It does, and I'm hoping it comes up in a 4th Aspect vote if we have one, but my heart belongs to Kinship.
closing vote here, looks like family won, but counting to be sure
>>38057359>It doesI think thats a terrible reason. It doesn't really describe Shee very well at all.And choosing it because "it combos well", even if it actually doesn't, is just silly.
>>38057362Yeah, Family won 9 to 5.Kinda surprised nobody voted for Emotion, I was expecting at least a few votes for it.
>>38057370I would have voted Emotion, until I saw Inevitablity got more than one vote, so I voted for Family, because it works too.
>>38057354I really do not want us to get Emotion. That drawback is asking for trouble.
>>38057370Extra PE cost for every power use that only gets higher and higher as the aspect gets higher.Fuck that.
>>38057384Compared to Inevitablities making us go Jagga dumb and keep fighting until we die?Emotions drawback is tame and harmless by comparison.
>>38057386>that only gets higher and higher as the aspect gets higherNothing in the description implies that.And its not "extra cost", its just that we have to spend extra PE to boost the skills.So its not like we don't get anything from it.
>>38057066I roll for it.
>>38057395The massive PE drain is pretty terrible.With our willpower we could beat most will dc at onset. Still family was best choice in my opinion.
>>38057398Can you read?>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.
You look around at the people around you, Dev and Rainya at your side, Kae and Lirael lying on towels in the distance. Yeah, that’s a part of who you are, you don’t need to be more like the Five or some strange arcane principle, this is your aspect right here, your family. Perhaps not by blood, but family all the same. You wonder if the Ichor in the Depths would have anything to say about that? Probably, but not your concern for now.Inside you, you can feel things changing, the change hasn’t finished yet, it will never be finished you suspect, but for now, it has slowed.What do you do now?>Options as *To Do List* above, or write-in.
>>38057402>The massive PE drain is pretty terrible.Stop throwing around exegarrations like that, it makes you look idiotic. Its not a massive PE drain, its one PE per round. And since we are definitly going to get Inner Fire, it doesn't even matter.>>38057405I was referring to "extra PE cost" its not extra cost. Abilities that already cost PE won't get more expensive.
>>38057395True, I like Giving though, let's see what Pally offers next.
>>38057415>9. Rainya and Shee time>Create a nice island to float out into the ocean on with her for some alone time
>>38057415>Perhaps not by blood, but family all the same.Oh, I know very well who would have something to day about that~
>>38057415>Becomes even more like Ichor>I don't need to be more like the five!Shee pls.>9. Rainya and Shee time (location? Go on a date? Other?)
>>380574156. Explore the research facility (Symbiot research room, refrigerator)
>>38057071>9. Rainya and Shee time Go on a date?
>>38057415>9. Rainya and Shee time>Ask if she wants go somewhere, or do something, if not>>38057426>Create a nice island to float out into the ocean on with her for some alone time
>>38057415>3. Talk to Garrax (reunited)We need to address this issue
>>380574157. Contact the Rebellion about a mission (or to cut ties officially?)Warn them about the army coming and the gates.>>38057419Every time we use a psy ability it costs extra points. It gets worse as we level it. Safe to say until we get Inner fire it's going to be a pain to keep pe in stock with emotion.
>>38057415>3. Talk to Garrax (reunited)
>>38057415>9. Rainya and Shee time>Go on a date
>>38057415>9. Rainya and Shee time
>>38057444>Safe to say until we get Inner fire it's going to be a pain to keep pe in stock with emotion.What? Do you know literally nothing about our abilities?Even if we somehow surge up in Emotion so we rise above 1 in the next few threads, thats still minimal, especially since we can easily replenish PE in fights with Drain Life.
>>38057419>Its not a massive PE drain, its one PE per round.It increases at higher levels, unless you think "penalties increase" doesn't apply to the penalty that you don't want it to.>And since we are definitly going to get Inner Fire, it doesn't even matter.Yes, it does, because losing that one PE/round regeneration when it takes 50 *fucking* XP to get it in the first place is something that matters to me quite a fucking lot.And then there's the fact that *every* instance of Alter Power also has the opportunity to be overcharged and sometimes we use multiple psychic powers in a round, so even if it's only one/power, Inner Flame still won't keep up.>I was referring to "extra PE cost" its not extra cost. Abilities that already cost PE won't get more expensive.They effectively will since overcharging is something we don't do for a lot of abilities. For example, we'd never overcharge Subtle Talent, since there's literally no benefit to doing so, so it's cost is effectively just increasing.>>38057459And then we'd have to spend much of the PE we'd recover on overcharging the thing in the first place. It's inefficient and cumbersome.
>>38057444Considering Mystic Siphon and Drain Life exist, PE drain isn't really any of our worries anymore.Most of our fighting abilities don't even use PE.
>>38057462>much of the PEAgain, its 1PE/per Emotion Rank.Thats what, 1-5 for the next 10 threads or so. Its nothing.
>>380574731-5 per power, per alteration of a power. It's something, something we wouldn't have to bother with without it, something that I feel outweighs any of the benefits of Emotion, since it's benefits kinda suck.
soImpossibility- Jaggie/MirrorFamily- IchorCorruption- Baalzi/IchorThis about right?
>>38057496Not really.The Aspects are close to them, but they are our own, they don't come from the Five and the Five don't have them necessarily.Ichor got Family, but no one got Imposibility.
>>38057496If you want to try to force them into fitting with one of them, I guess. None of them are really all that close to any of the five except for Ichor and Family.
>>38057507>>38057512Well I was saying what they were closest too. For possible reactions from the five.
>>38057496Corruption is mostly King.Nearly all of the choices we made that gave us Corruption were King choices.
>>38057516So add him to the list on it then? Ichor is a fan of it(infectious form making them more "hers" among other powers) And Baalzi is too from what I've seen.
>>38057541I don't really see it as Ichor so much.Ichor is mostly about improving and nurturing, not so much about making them more "in our image".
>>38057515I didn't have the feeling the Five actually care all that much about the Aspects.They want us close to their natures, but they do that mostly over Favour, since that is actually indicative of what we do.Aspects, not so much.We could have Family and still be displeasing to Ichor. It would take a bit of a stretch, but its possible.
>>38057496Hey. Hey, I just noticed somethingWith Corruption, Impossibility, Family, plus having her own Realm, Shee can create a world of her own for herself and her waifu/waifus, where nothing can go wrong and everyone loves her.You know what that means? Shee is /tg/
>>38057614How is that a realisation? Every MC is /tg/. For obvious reasons.
>>38057614Yeah, why do I feel a sense of impending doom now?
Out of all the aspects we don't have which ones would you like Shee to get next?
>>38057675We don't know all of the Aspects we don't have.
>>38057675Inevitability. Nothing escapes Shee.
>>38057675Inevitability or slaughter. Damn hippies!
You turn to Rainya “Do you want to do something?”“Like what?” she says“I dunno” you say “I could make an island for just the two of us, or we could go on a date or something?”Dev whistles in appreciation as Rainya blushes “Smooth operator Shee” he says “time to float away on the love island!” Fuck off Dev, you just stop yourself from saying out loud as Rainya ponders your question.“Could we go shopping” says Rainya “I still don’t have many clothes suitable for wear in the Hive, and maybe lunch or something after?”“Uh sure” you say, you have enough money to do that. The three of you climb down and you ignore Devs ongoing oh-so-witty comments on the matter as you get back down to the sand and head over to tell Kaelyn and Lirael what’s going on.“Dev” says Rainya “Do me a favour.”“What?” he asks“Delay Shee!” Rainya suddenly runs on ahead as Dev slams into you, trying to knock you down. Despite this sudden betrayal you easily throw him off and chase after Rainya “Come back here!” you yell, grinning. Rainya just giggles and runs faster, even as a duplicate of hers splits off and heads in your direction, trying to tackle you.By the time you get near Kaelyn and Lirael you have three Rainyas and Dev trying to hold you back, with not much success.Rainya still gets there ahead of you “Shee and I are going on a date” she announces to Kaelyn and Lirael “We might be out late, don’t wait up.”Lirael sits up and says to Rainya “Have fun!”Kaelyn just stays lying down and waves at you, adding “Maybe you can make some more stuff when you get back?” You don’t dignify that with a response.You and Rainya change back into your real clothes and head downstairs. Checking the time, you see its midday “Let’s grab some lunch” you say to Rainya “Then we can plan” “Sure” says Rainya brightly.---Over lunch at a cafe not too far from the restaurant the two of you sit at a table and plan the afternoons activities.
“So you need all sorts of clothes” you say to Rainya “Anything else?”“Maybe a motor bike too?” says Rainya “I’ve always wanted to try one.”“Yeah I don’t have enough for that” you say “Sorry”“But you will” says Rainya “Once you’ve sold the computers and stuff, we can go looking for today, even if we’re not buying.”“True” you concede the point “Anything else?”“I’ve been thinking” says Rainya “About my role in, y’know, everything. I could start learning multiple jobs at once like I dunno, communications and demolitions and other stuff, do you think we should get some radios and stuff for that.” Well there’s a thought, you haven’t really given much thought to specialist roles in your little group, you’ve just kinda taken missions as they come, maybe some radios or something would be good? Demolitions and explosives are kinda illegal, so you’re best leaving that until later.“Enough about...that” you say “This should be about us, what do you want to spend the day doing?”“Oh I dunno” says Rainya “A movie, see the sights, a walk in the park, dinner, dancing, an evening out late, just the two of us I haven’t been on many dates, you pick.”What do you do first? (please pick only 1)>Clothes shopping (including underwear/swimsuits?)>Motorbikes>Radio gear>Movie (Action? Romance? Horror?)>Tourist stuff (see the sights)>Walk in the park>Other (what?)Dinner and dancing will be options later
>>38057718>>Clothes shopping (including underwear/swimsuits?)
>>38057718>Clothes shopping (including underwear)We can conjure up swimsuits for her anyway.
>>38057718>Clothes shopping (including underwear/swimsuits)
>>38057718>Clothes shopping (yes)Pally. Please.Be very detailed with the descriptions
>>38057718>Clothes shopping (including underwear/swimsuits)She can probably use more clothes now that she's gonna live in the Hive for longer.
>>38057718>Clothes shopping (including underwear)
>>38057718>Clothes shopping (Y)
>>38057718>>Clothes shopping (including underwear/swimsuits)>>Movie
>>38057718Don't they need licenses to drive vehicles in this place?Should probably look to get one for Rainya first, before buying a motorbike.
“Clothes shopping first” you say “essentials take priority.”“Right” agrees Rainya. And the two of you set to it, heading to clothing stores, trying on different things, different combinations to create your own unique styles.As you do, you notice that Rainya seems to prefer clothes that are nice but kinda...background. The outfits she puts together are forgettable, fade into a crowd style.“Are you sure you don’t want to get something that, makes you stand out more?” you ask Rainya.“Oh no” she says, shaking her head “As a former Duster living in the Hive I don’t want to stand out, I’m fine with fading into the crowd.” You have a mental image of Rainya as every person is a crowd...wearing different clothes“Hey now there’s an idea” you say to Rainya “With different clothes and disguises and stuff you could *be* a crowd”“Shee” says Rainya patiently, as she examines her latest outfit in a mirror critically as you watch “I can only do three duplicates so far, I doubt I’m ever going to be able to pull that trick off.”“Still” you say “It would be cool.”“So what’s next?” says Rainya as she heads back into the changing rooms.“Underwear” you say as she comes out “and swimming suits.” Rainya gives you an amused look as she picks up her bags “Don’t I have enough swimsuits at the beach house?”“You have a few” you say as the two of you head to the next store “But what happens if you need to go downstairs?”“I dunno” says Rainya “What?”“They could fade away” you say “Which personally, I’m ok with, but-”“I need to buy some beach clothes” says Rainya “Definitely, and underwear.”“And you need to check that it looks good on you” you point out “nothing worse than badly-fitting underwear after all.”“Was this just a chance for you to see me model underwear for you?” asks Rainya in as exasperated tone, as you head into the next store.
“Uh...maybe?” you reply. Rainya laughs “Ok fine, but you’ll be doing the same for me.”---“Are you sure?” says Rainya, turning around to try and see her own rear in the mirror “I mean black and lacy I get, white I get it stands out against my skin, but blue and white stripes?”The two of you are in a changing room together, trying on different types of underwear, swimwear and bra’s and giggling a lot. There’s not that much room to move in here and you find yourselves helping each other into and out of the clothes in question.“It looks great on you” you say “Definitely.”“I’m not sure” says Rainya “Besides, they make my butt look big, don’t you think?”“Your butt looks fine” you say “unlike my own, somewhat flat ass.”“You are kinda skinny” says Rainya “But that’s ok, I still like you.”“Thanks” you say dryly“So what do you think I should buy?” asks Rainya “The underwear and the swimsuits?”Underwear>Black panties>White panties>Striped panties>Other (what?)>Buy everything>I forgot what they looked like, would you try them on again?Bra’s>Regular Bra>Push-up Bra>Other (what?)>Buy everything>I forgot what they looked like, would you try them on again?Swimwear>One piece>Two piece>Bikini>Other (what?)>Buy everything>I forgot what they looked like, would you try them on again?

“I think you should get all the underwear” you say “It’d be kinda boring just wearing the same thing everyday anyway, don’t you think?”“Yeah” says Rainya, still trying to check out her own butt in the mirror “you sure these don’t make me look fat?”“You look fine” you reassure her “For the bra’s though, I think you should stick to the regular one, the push-up kinda....”“Made me look like I was going to topple over?” says Rainya“You are blessed enough in that area” you say tactfully “not to need any help, I’m a little jealous actually.”“Oh please” says Rainya, leaning down to kiss you on the forehead “your body is fine, besides, I’m sure the Five would give you I like shapechanging or something if you wanted it, right?” Yeah, probably...“Anyway” you say “I think the bikini looked great on you, maybe get four in different colours?”“So you can tell me and my doubles apart?” says Rainya with a grin “Why?”“I dunno” you say “I just think it would look sexy.”“Hah ok fine” says Rainya “Now it’s your turn to model.”“Sure” you say confidently “which bikini did you want me to try on first?”Rainya gives you predatory smile “Who said anything about bikini’s?”Uh...---“I’m not sure how to feel about this” you say“You look beautiful” says Rainya with a dreamy smile. You’re wearing a long green dress with a cutaway back and bare arms. The high heels took a bit of getting used to, but you’re slowly getting the hang of them but....“This isn’t really me” you say “It’s kinda, I dunno, girly.”“Please” says Rainya “you don’t have to wear it out and about.” You look in the mirror and watch her walk up behind you. You hear her whisper in your ear, her breath tickling your skin “you can wear it just for me in private if you like.”Eeep!Buy the dress and heels?Y/NAnd next activity?>Motorbikes>Radio gear>Movie (Action?

>>38058295can't type update, laughing too hard
>>38058295But she could feed and pet them!
>>38058307>>38058295With how Shee considers her aberrant traits normal.I now have the image that Shee won't understand at all when people get freaked out by her aquatic creations. They're also so beautiful and cute to her.
Oceanic Dream costs 7 per rank now, right? I'd kinda like to get it to 3 and start working towards being able to summon monsters. That'd be cool.
>>380583398XP per Rank. We can create monster that can breathe air from 3 onwards.Although we still need to find out if we can create them in our divine Realm.I heavily suspect we can.
>>38058360But hitting 10 favor with Ichor reduces everything by 1 I thought? Or does OD not get that applied to it?
>>38058360we get -1 cause of getting to favor 10 with Ichor. so 7 we need to get king to 10 soon as well.
>>38058360Let's assume we can for now.
>>38058360I would be okay with taking one Rank and then start creating a few for testing.More than that is kind of a waste, 7XP is a steep price for something that won't pay off much until Rank 6, and also requires us to get Clairvoiance Mastery.
>>38058360We can use Corruption to draw them into other peoples' dreams, so we could probably force them into our realm with Corruption and maybe impossibility tacked on.
>>38058360>8XP per Rank7 with the discount as it is an Ichor gift
>>38058379>We can use Corruption to draw them into other peoples' dreamsSending something from Dream to Dream is pretty different from sending from Dream to another Dimension.I heavily doubt Corruption can work around the need for Interdimensional Teleport like that.
What's the point of ever taking Oceanic reality above rank 2? After that it doesn't make the water cube any wider or longer, just deeper. The bigger sea monsters couldn't even fit in it.
>>38058444Thanks for spotting, fixed the typo
>>38058460>OR 5 lets us summon one million cubic meters of waterI want it
We can make blue wale sized monster with air breathing for just 17PE, after getting Massive Sea Monsters.Just to let that sink in for a moment.
So we get Clairsentience as next psychic ability right?Because summoning massive monsters to fight for us is definitly worth the investment of getting to Oceanic Dream 6.
>>38058501might b gud.We don't even need to get pregnant to do it like the pleb normal Ichor followers.Her champion is going to be a bitch to kill if she comes after us.
>>38058501Is it really worth 70 XP? I'd rather get Mystic Siphon or Inner Flame, honestly.
>>38058472Sadly it doesn't leave its space, otherwise we could just flood the Hives.
Ichor's theme songhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fi8kYcl2Y38
>>38058526Are you serious?Mystic Siphon is good, no doubt. But its not "conjure X Godzillas at-will"-good.
>>38058536>Sadly we can't do this thing that would cause a great number of deaths and loss of infrastructure>>38058547Probably going to have to balance that later and add a hard cap to the amount you can increase size.
>>38058543Fits so much it's painful.
>>38058557>Probably going to have to balance that later and add a hard cap to the amount you can increase size.I think it would be better to increase the Costs/Time required to summon something appropriate to its size/PE invest in creating it.So we can't literally conjure X Godzillas at-will.Just one or two.
>>38058536Forget the Hive.We need to flood the fae kings palace.
You cave “Alright” you say to Rainya “I’ll buy the dress.”“Oh really Shee?” says Rainya “You mean it?”“Yes” you say “It’s not really my thing, but, for you.”Rainya grabs you and kisses you hard “You’re the best!” she says.“Just, help me out of this thing” you say “I think we should do something else.”“Gladly” says Rainya, peeling you out of the dress with indecent haste.---You and Rainya stand in a crowd, wearing your regular clothes as the tour guide tells you all about the statue.“And so, after reclaiming Apollyon from the invaders known as the Core Empire, King Ordeyen brought peace and order to our world.” “That’s bullshit” Ranya whispers to you “Isn’t it?”“It is” you say “But who can say what really happened, it was hundreds of years ago.”You look up at the statue, it looks appropriately martial and impressive: a stern-faced man holding a sword pointed at unseen foes, dressed in full battle regalia. Is that truly King Ordeyen? Or just the human-like shape he shows his subjects?“Lets go see something else” you say to Rainya “this is...not right.” A part of you wonders how you can make it right, or perhaps just...overwrite it.---“This is beautiful!” exclaims Rainya “How...?”All around you streams of water twist and curve through the air, defying gravity and physics, swimming through the air like multi-coloured snakes, wrapping around the other tourists, occasionally brushing up against them and leaving damp spots on their clothes.
All around you can feel the itching, burning feeling of chaos magic. You and Rainya walk through the gardens titled the Palace of Aquatic wonders where you can see all sorts of strange and yes, wonderful things done with water. The water streams are just part of it. You see sculptures of water, spheres of water suspended in air with fish swimming through them, waterfalls that flow upwards and other reality defying exhibits. This feels comfortable, normal to you, even as those around you gasp in amazement, Rainya among them. She drags you by the hand from exhibit to exhibit, clearly delighted at the marvels on display.You keep one eye watching the guards, just in case something or someone is able to detect anything unusual about you.---The last place you visit has a long elevator ride up, even as the elevator passes floor after floor at a rapid pace, it still takes an hour to reach its destination. You and the other tourists walk out of the elevator into a giant glass-like dome.“As you can see” says the guide “You’re now at the very top of the Hive, above even the Governors Residence.”You’re barely listening, you and Rainya have your faces almost pressed to the glass, looking down, around...and also looking upwards...Down below you is a vast swirling dust cloud, stretching as far as you can see, well, you’re over thirty kilometres high, of course you can’t see anything down there.To the sides you can see mountains and, if you squint, what looks to be another Hive, maybe?And up above you, you can see the stars. You deliberately came up here just as the sun was setting – and with the light fading you can pick out tiny pinpricks of light against a vast black gulf.“It’s beautiful” breathes Rainya at your side, one arm snaking around your waist and pulling you close.“Yeah” you say, looking up “Yeah”“Can we go there some day?” asks Rainya “Into space?”“Someday” you promise “Someday."
Later, on the ride down “Rainya asks “So what now?”“Are you hungry?” you say “Want something to eat?”“Yeah” says Rainya “You want anything in particular?”“Uh...” You say, truth is, neither of you have much experience with different cuisine.Your response>You pick>We’ll just wander until we find a place>Something spicy>A takeout place>Head back to the Waystation>Other (what?)

>>38058631>>We’ll just wander until we find a place
>>38058631>Head back to the WaystationThey offer basically everything already.
>>38058631>We’ll just wander until we find a placeLooking at our charsheet for funds, do we even still have that stash of drugs?
>>38058713Maybe a few left. We have vampire loli daughter as our drug now.
>>38058725Just wondering if we bothered to keep it with us after leaving our old home behind.
>>38058740Probably not if they weren't already looted/destroyed.
I also realise, if Dev wants something to do, we should give him the manuals for the warmech now, so he can try improving it.
>>38058631What are the chances we could get a Corruption/Impossibility/Famly improvement that allows to have our tentacles emerge from our friends?
>>38058774Yeah, he can tell us what part's he'll need for it. We also might want to look into the mech manufactory in the facility. Might be able to make mediums or heavies with enough supplies if we can get it running again.
“We’ll just wander until we find a place” you say to Rainya, adding “And then you can choose.”“Gee thanks Shee” says Rainya sarcasticallyYou ask the tour guide for suggestions and he send you to a long street with all sorts of diners, restaurants, and takeouts. They’re even handcarts and stalls in the streets, offering all sorts of fare.“Well?” you ask Rainya, gesturing down the street “Take your pick”The two of you wander down the street until Rainya picks a place that seems to specialise in salads and fried food, an odd combination, still, worth a try, and for Dusters like, well like both of you, fresh vegetable are a novelty. You still haven’t gotten used to eating real food regularly, despite now living at the Waystation.The food is usual, but good. Over dinner you talk about the day you’ve had, Rainya positively gushing about some of the sights you’ve seen, you occasionally teasing her over the clothes you both bought. When the meal is almost over Rainya asks you a little uncertainly “Shee, where is this going, us I mean?”Oh boy, one of those conversations.“What do you mean?” you ask Rainya “I mean, us” she says “I mean, am I just someone you want to have fun with, or-or- a friend, or am I something more to you?”“What am I to you?” you askRainya smirks at you “I asked first” she saysYour response?>I’m not sure>No really, you first>A friend, we have fun together>I want us to be more (tell her you love her?

>>38058818>I want us to be moreNot sure about the love part, I see no reason why Shee wouldn't. But maybe its too early to say it?If she asked I would say yes, I suppose.
>>38058882>>38058842She knows Lirael was meddling. Liraels meddling was Lirael talking to her to make her go on the offensive in our relationship, obviously she knows it.We might want to tell her about Liraels "ideas" in that direction, but I don't see it as terribly relevant right now.
>>38058894She was also mind meddling and giving nudges. That's kind of a big deal anon.
>>38058909>She was also mind meddling and giving nudgesShe explicitly wasn't. You need to re-read that scene.She only read Rainyas midn to know how to talk us up to her.
>>38058818>I want us to be more (tell her you love her? N)
More + love it is, writing
>>38058909We would have definitly reacted a lot less mild to it if she had actually influenced Rainyas mind. Luckily Lirael definitly knows better than that.
>>38058924Am I the only one getting worried that telling her we love her this quickly is going to end poorly?
>>38058991No but we can't do too badly, we love Kae after all.
>>38058991Probably not, but I don't consider that a very justified worry.I, personally, would of course say its too early.But Shee is a 17 year old teenager in her first romatnic relationship.She's gonna call it love.
>>38058991I don't see how?Normally I'd say its too early, but I see no reason to assume this relationship won't work out, nor do I see a reason Shee would consider that.>>38059018A different sort of love.
>All that Ichor favour we could have gotten here
>>38058818>tell her you love her Y
>>38058991Eh. Not really? I mean it's extemely inapprorpiate this early on in the relationship.. but this is QUEST land. We've also told Kae that we love her. I think that was more friendship love though.I wouldn't have been opposed to the Kae route but I believe that ship has sailed.
“I want us to be more than friends” you say, taking Rainyas hands in your own “I like you Rainya, a lot, more than that, I think I love you.”“Oh” says Rainya “I, uh, wow.” Her heart rate and breathing have increased a lot.“Too soon?” you ask“A little maybe, yeah” says Rainya, looking away, then back at you “I just, I thought you were going to tell me you thought I was sexy or something.”“You are sexy” you say with a grin “But you sounded really serious, so I thought I should give you a serious answer.”“Hah, ah yeah” says Rainya, grinning back ay you “my fault there I guess, sorry, but still, wow, um...”You decide to give Rainya an out “So what am I too you?” you say “And where do you see us going?”Rainya smiles at you and grips you hands tightly “I don’t know about love” she says “yet anyway, maybe in time, but yeah, I like you a lot Shee, you’re cute and sexy and you put up with my weird freaky turn-ons and I don’t want to let you go ever. I guess, I dunno, I’m lucky I found you. I’d kinda resigned myself to not finding someone who wasn’t freaked out by my powers, not in Dust Town anyway. As for where I see us going, well, we’ll just have to see, I’m not sure yet, but I really want to find out.”“That’s fine by me” you say, leaning across the table to kiss her gently “We’ll find out together.”“Yeah” says Rainya, her breath on your lips, and then kisses you again “together.”---With dinner over you walk out of the restaurant arm in arm, out into the dark street lit by street lights. All around you is a vast crowd as its prime business time for a street like this.“Where do you want to go next?” you yell to Rainya over the noise.“It’s too early to go back yet” yells Rainya “A movie? Or go clubbing maybe?”Your response?>Movie (Action? Romance? Horror?)>Go clubbing>Late-night walk in the park>Other (what?)
>>38059054You turned Shee into a slut! Look at all the love she's spreading around!

>>38059063>that was more friendship love thoughConsidering she said in the same sentenmce "her father loves her", she definitly didn't talk about romantic love when she asked that.I hope.
>>38059065>Movie: RomanceI would say horror, but these two deal with so much weird on a regular basis I doubt they'd be interested.
>>38059065>>38059092changing to>Movie ( Horror)
>>38059065>Movie HorrorFind out we scare easily and Rainya needs to cuddle us instead.
Horror movie it is, writing
>>38059187I doubt it Impossibility plus us looking at old gods regularly is likely to really numb our reactions to "scary" things.
>>38059187I could see that happening. It'll be cute either way.
“How about a movie?” you say to Rainya “You in the mood to see some weird monster preying on some cute girls?”Rainya gives you worried look “Shee what sort of-”“A horror movie” you say “You want to go see a horror movie?”“Sure!” says Rainya “That sounds good” she sounds a little relieved.---“Two tickets for *Bio-Horror IV* you say to the man at the theatre. The movie poster shows a man turning into some sort of semi-liquid monster, that looks like it might be scary.The movie theatre is almost empty, out of the fifty or so seats there’s maybe ten people in here. You and Rainya take seats at the back, sharing a box of popcorn between you. The movie starts out fairly predictably: a monster released upon an unsuspecting Hive world by some weird scientists called the *Philologians* on the orders of the Core Empire. It resembles a puddle of dark liquid that moves slowly.“I thought this was supposed to be scary” whispers Rainya “what is this, a nature docu-oh, oh....”As you watch the dark puddle is stepped on by a man taking a shortcut through an alleyway late at night and it crawls up his legs, enveloping him as he screams. Once it has completely covered him a fanged maw opens where his mouth should be and a dozen tentacles emerge from its back, huh, kinda cute in an ugly sort of way. Then it slowly retreats within his own flesh, leaving him almost normal looking, only coming out when it feeds.Neither you or Rainya find this scary, in fact Rainya shoots you a considering look.From then on the man has to deal with blackouts, strange cravings and a constant hunger, until he finally accepts that to feed the beast he has to kill and eat people, or it will start eating away at his own flesh. He preys on the homeless and targets of opportunity at first, until the whispering voice in his head tells him it hates the taste of weak meat, poisoned by drugs and alcohol, it wants tastier food.
Although not scary exactly, some of the scenes where he unexpectedly jumps out on people get a small yelp out of you and Rainya, Rainya more than you. The music and the directing manage to get a reaction out of you more than the monster, which stops it from being boring at least.The guy picks up a girl in a bar and then the scene changes, to the two of them in his apartment, kissing and groping one another. As you watch a black patch appears on his neck, oh yeah, you know where this is going. Rainya is leaning forward as if waiting for the moment where he will change and eats the girls face.You look over at Rainya, a mischievous smile spreading on your face, she sis engrossed in the film.What do you do?>Nothing, watch the movie>Tentacle around ankle>Tentacle up skirt>Other (what?)And when?>When the scene is getting sexy>When the monster appears and Rainya jumps>Other (when?)

>>38059506>Tentacle around ankle>When the monster appears and Rainya jumps
As things are getting hot and heavy between the monster-infested guy and the woman he bought home you extend a tentacle and wrap it lightly around Rainyas ankle. Rainya spares you a curious look and then turns back to the scene. You have the tentacle crawl up her leg.“Behave Shee” whispers Rainya “I’m trying to watch the-mmm...” Rainyas admonishment is cut off as your tentacle strokes and tickles her thigh, soon it’s joined by a pair of tentacles, the two of them caressing Rainyas things as the third sneaks further up her skirt.Rainya grabs hold of that one with both hands, arresting its movement just short and says to you in a breathy voice “Shee much as I’d, nnng-” Her head goes back as your tentacles tease and caress her, moving further up.“Is this really the place?” she asks a little desperately, as her grip on your tentacle loosens.“Just say *no* and I’ll stop-” Your offer is cut short by the roar and spray of blood on the screen as the monster attacks its victim, killing her in an appropriately gory fashion, her head flying over the audience thanks to the holo-projector, a stream of blood trailing after it.The two of you pause in your antics for a moment to watch. Once the scene is over, Rainya gives you a part apologetic, part regretful look “moment lost” is all she says, and lets you go, settling down in her seat. She’s right, after seeing that, you’re not exactly feeling romantic. You retract your limbs and simply cuddle up to her for the rest of the movie.---You walk out of the movie theatre together, laughing.“And then the police guy says *I got this*, only for it to bite his head off!” says Rainya, you laugh with her.“And that line at the end” you say in between giggles “When he throws it out of the shuttle into the quicksand” you both say the line together “he got his *just deserts*” and laugh together.When you’ve calmed down, Rainya asks “What sort of hack even writes a line like that?”
“Someone with no sense of humour who thinks he’s funny” you say with absolute certainty.“Yeah” agrees Rainya, yawning “Ahhh, you want to go out dancing?”“You look pretty tired” you point out.“I’m fine” says Rainya “Champion, remember, I’m tough.”“Yeah, big tough Warrior girl” you say, looking up at Rainya, she’s only slightly taller than you, by a few inches, only five or six, not much at all.“But if you’re tired” Rainya offers “We can go home.”Where do you go?>Back to the Waystation>Out dancing>Walk in the park>Other (what?)Walk in the park can be combined with other options – you walk through it on your way to wherever.

>>38060151I'm gonna say not any of those.
>>38060151Two bit thug in the park. Of course with 20+11 roll.. maybe Best girl?
>>38060181Perception rolls don't usually change the nature of the event like that.
“Yeah I’m tired” you say, faking a yawn “Lets go home, but lets go through that park we saw.”“Shee!” says Rainya, in a scandalised tone “A late-night walk in the park, when there will be no one else around, what sort of girl do you take me for?”“An adventurous one?” you ask“Damn right!” says Rainya, taking you by the arm as you both head to the park.---“Will you behave!” you say to Rainya.“What?” says Rainya, her arm linked though your arm, walking on your right.“It’s not like there’s anyone around” says Rainya, her arm linked though your arm, walking on your left.The two, or rather, the five of you are walking slowly through the park very late at night. One Rainya is one either side of you, one is walking in front of you, her hips swaying in an exaggerated motion as she walks. And the last one is behind you, her hands on your hips. You’re surrounded by Rainya’s, and honestly, you’re kinda turned on by that idea.“Someone could see you!” you hiss at her “We could both get in trouble.”“See what?” says Rainya from behind you “There’s no one here, its dark anyway, what’re they going to see, a bunch of girls going home after a night out?” “Yeah” says the one in front, turning around and walking backwards as she looks at you “Nothing is going to go wro-”“Rainya look out!” you yell, exploding into motion and tackling her, even as the guy steps out from behind the tree and swings a club at the back of her head. The swinging club whistles overhead and you and the front-most Rainya tumble to the ground. You lift yourself up on your hands and knees, over a surprised Rainya as the others three gather in close.
All around you rough-looking men are emerging from behind trees and bushes, carrying some combination of clubs with occasional electricity sparks flying from them, machine-knives that they’re powering up, and heavy-looking pistols. There’s maybe 30 of them in total. One of them is in a suit, and carrying no weapons at all, you recognise him.“Donni” you breathe in surprise.“Shee Hyul” he says calmly “I heard you wanted to see me, I know you’re one of Garrax’s pets, and you’re probably Reunited, which is all the reason I need to want you dead.” To his thugs he says “Do what you want with the other girls, but make sure the redhead dies.”What do you do?>Attack (options in next post, this pleases Jagganatha)>Try to talk Donni out of killing you (how?)>Teleport away (Subtle Talent)>Other (what?)
>>38060285>Attack (options in next post, this pleases Jagganatha)Not gonna risk another disaster with trying to teleport.Get Rainya her guns.
>>38060285>>Try to talk Donni out of killing you (how?)"Garrax's pet? Please, he couldn't hold a leash on anyone. Try again"
>>38060285>Attack (options in next post, this pleases Jagganatha)If he's the Jagganatha follower, then talking won't do shit and he can have a ability to prevent teleportation.
Rolled 4 + 11 (1d20 + 11)>>38060285>>Try to talk Donni out of killing you (how?)"Garrax's pet? Please, he couldn't hold a leash on anyone. Try again"if it fails>Attack (options in next post, this pleases Jagganatha)
>>38060285>Try to talk Donni out of killing you (how?)>Pet? You're insulting me. Now call off your thugs, I don't want to soil my clothes and let's have a talk about how big ass-hole Garrax is.
>>38060285>Attack (options in next post, this pleases Jagganatha)Either he is the Reunited we are looking for, or he just hate the Cult of the Five.Either way, good thing to kill him fast.
>>38060285>Attack (options in next post, this pleases Jagganatha)
>“Shee Hyul” he says calmly “I heard you wanted to see me, I know you’re one of Garrax’s pets, and you’re probably Reunited, which is all the reason I need to want you dead.” To his thugs he says “Do what you want with the other girls, but make sure the redhead dies.”He is obviously not doing proper research beforehand.He also wants to kill reunited.>>38060285>Attack (options in next post, this pleases Jagganatha)>Other (what?)This is the second time that someone thought of me as some idiots pet. Obviously you are not using much of your brain on this.
>>38060285>Attack (options in next post, this pleases Jagganatha)Finally favour
>>38060381>Either he is the Reunited we are looking for, or he just hate the Cult of the Five.>Either way, good thing to kill him fast.Him being the Reunited we're looking for would be a good reason *not* to kill him immediately, to me.
>>38060338>>38060375>>38060377>trying to talk a Jagganatha follower out of a fightAre you serious?If we want to settle this without having to kill him too, we need to prove our strength. And that means decisive alpha strike.
>>38060285>There’s maybe 30 of them in total.Hahahahah30? Thats cute.Pretty sure Rainya alone has a good chance to kill that many in one round.
“Good luck with that!” you yell as Rainya and you scramble to your feet, the five of you back to back as the thugs around you close in, none of them have fired yet, they’re just closing the circle, making sure you don’t run, and hefting the melee weapons they’re carrying, as if they want to get their work done up close. You can hear a buzzing coming from them, you realise you’re sensing some sort of technology they have on them, more weapons, force shields maybe?Donni stands back outside of the circle.

Did we have a chance to spend xp between threads? I know some people wanted to get rainya the ability to dump out a lot of clones.
>>38060540If they all have shields this is not going to be easy.
>>38060550Not really the time to distract people with XP, anon.>>38060540Can we apply Subtle Talent to our Dimensional Arsenal, or is that not allowed since it doesn't cost Psychic Energy to use DA?
>>38060550>Did we have a chance to spend xp between threads?You can spend XP whenever, last thread the post-thread discussion focused on other stuff.

How will Defense of the Mother work? Will we asked if we want to take any hits Rainya might take?
>>38060679we be asked*
Once we have taken care of the Thugs, we should go into Titan/Fluid Body to impress on him how high in Jagganathas favour we are too.Would increase our chances he believes us we aren't working for Garrax.
>>38060679>>38060692Yes, you will be asked, and the basics of the attacks described.
ok, please roll 3d20, in order: Subtle Talent, Storm of Fire (Shee), Storm of Fire (Rainya)
Rolled 2, 7, 3 = 12 (3d20)>>38060728

Rolled 11, 15, 13 = 39 (3d20)>>38060728
>>38060745thank you for decent to good rolls anon.
>>38060698>Implying he's the Jaggantha Reunited>Implying he particularly respects Jaggantha and it isn't just that he has an abnormal number of Gifts from him due to their similarities rather than being a true follower>Implying he'd care even if he is, since evidently just being Reunited means he wants to kill us, meaning he's probably planning on winning the old-fashioned wayHe's not really behaving like a Jaggantha devotee, what with the ambush of hired thugs. Fluid Body is Ichor, not Jaggantha, and we can't use it with Titan Form anymore.
Rainya will be targeted by 15 attacks (machine-knives and club)Use Defence of the Mother? (6PE/attack)>Y/NIf yes, how many attacks?As this is in close melee there isn't much point in appearing next to the attackers, but you can if you want.
>>3806086015...we need to get out of here.
>>38060849>and we can't use it with Titan Form anymorePretty sure we can, only mutually contradicting stuff doesn't work anymore.>>38060860>NNot much point, it would just mean not getting to kill enough of them.I do however wonder how 15 people get around our tentacles into melee with them. Especially with short weapons like knives and clubs.
>>38060860>N Rainya needs to by more champ endurance.
>>38060860I assume the 15 attacks are divided among all 4?>NShe can tank that. And we spend less energy healing her than we would expend on this one.
>>38060926>I assume the 15 attacks are divided among all 4?Yes
>>38060849>He's not really behaving like a Jaggantha devotee, what with the ambush of hired thugs.You absolutely fail to get Jagga. He doesn't give a shit HOW you get the strength to defeat your enemies. He even told us so himself at the beginning.
>>38060883That would significantly eat into our HP with aggravated damage for a bunch of attacks that probably aren't a major threat to the Rainyas, being divided between her clones, each of whom have 52 HP and DR 11.>>38060891>Pretty sure we can, only mutually contradicting stuff doesn't work anymore.You recall the example for mutually contradicting forms that resulted in that rule was Fluid Body + Titan Form, right?
>Activate Ruler of Shadows>Kill all of themThat's 3 tentacles each. We'd have to get some distance between us and Rainya first, but there's nothing these guys could do about it.And it's dark out, so it's not like anyone'd see us. Yeah, RoS is pretty big, but it's also made of dark which is the general state of the environment right now.
hey there is something wrong with the archives, can some1 give me a recap of what happend in thread 28 ?
>>38060957>You recall the exampleNo it wasn'tl. It was the combination that sparked the conversation, but the example for contradicting stuff was Fluid and Stone Body.>>38060974Use archive.moe
>>38060926Should she get level 8 duability then the knives are mostly harmless to her.
>>38060960How would Rainya get out of the area? They're encircling us.
>>38060989She already has Durability 8.
>>38060989And might one for a another dr boost as well.
We should activate fluid body.
>>38060991Apport her? Teleport ourself 30ft away and instantly activate RoS?We just have to not be right next to her when it goes off because it's one big umbrakinetic blender.
>>38060860>Y 2A few out of 15 makes little difference, but we don't need the PE that bad right now.
>>38060960Dude, its not just "dark", its literally the absence of all light.And its fuckhuge. If the park disappears in absolute darkness, people will notice.
ok, picking off 2 attacks it is
Fuck Use fluid body and then intercept the attacks!>>38060860This is literally what it's for.
>>38061042And I'm pretty sure we were warned against using it while people we cared for were next to us.
>>3806104230ft tall is big, but it's not "plunge an entire park into darkness" big.. If there's trees around here, it'll block out a lot of the view.
>>38061071Yes, Ichor told us that it wouldn't be a good idea to bring people into the center of it if we want them to be not dead. That's why we'd need to get Rainya at least 30ft away from us so she's not inside the main body that shreds everything it touches.
>>38061088How is it stupid? It gives us insane DR. These guys are far as we heard are using clubs. We could probably tank them with it and the mothers thing while Rainya lays down a hail of plasma fire.
>>38061071Technically we weren't supposed to let anyone into its center.But thats really our least worry, since we could apport her away.>>38061076Its defnitly big enough to make all the lights in that part of the park disappear. Getting seen in Titan Form is one thing, but this is something completly different.
>>38061113No one cares shut up.
You explode into action, plasma pistols appearing in your tentacles and hands you thrust them into Rainyas waiting hands even as you summon more. By the time you’re done each of the Rainyas is holding a Heavy Plasma Pistol, and you have in your hands and Tentacles six Heavy Plasma Pistols and two Heavy Plasma Rifles.Together the five of you blaze away at the thugs surrounding you, a hail of plasma blasts headed in all directions as they charge. Even as your blasts close you see globes of energy appearing around the charging thugs, oh great, force shields. Most of your shots are simply soaked up by the shields, only a few get through, wounding some of the thugs, your Rifles have the most success there, downing a half-dozen of your attackers.Then they’re on you. You and Rainya defend yourself against the onslaught of whirring blades and sparking clubs as best you can. This is when your bone-shielded limbs really prove their worth, easily picking off all the attacks leveled at you, not a one gets close.Rainya however...With four bodies to your one, and with over twenty thugs in close combat she is the focus of a lot of attacks. Machine-blades hack at her and clubs slam into her. Her angry yells indicate she’s more angry than hurt at this point. You help her as much as you can, your tentacles lashing out to pick off a couple of the attacks.Some of the Rainyas look a little groggy after hits from those clubs, stun batons, great...[Rainya HP 48, 47, 48, 52, (52 max). Shee PE 36/48]Thankfully your girls are pretty tough.Beyond the circle of attackers you can see Donni walking forwards, headed for you.You and the Rainyas are back to back, surrounded by 20 or so attackers in close quarters, as another four hang back, looking for an opening.Actions?Shee>Attack (weapon?)>Power (what?)>Other (what?)Rainya (4)>Attack (weapon?)>Other (what?)BattlefieldDonniThugs (20)Thugs (4) - wounded
>>38061113>We could probably tank them with it and the mothers thingMothers Defense costs 6! PE per attack.Its not for tanking a lot of small fish, its for when Donni takes a hit at her.
>>38061076Ichor said using it near people we love would be bad.>>38061113We'd run out of PE well before then.>>38061115Don't think we can use psy while in shadow form. and using It before would leave us open as hell.

>>38061130>Ichor said using it near people we love would be bad.She said to not let them into the main body. That's not the same thing as "never use it around people you love".

>>38061113Defence of the Mother negates affected attacks, Fluid Body would add nothing to that.

>>38061192Wouldn't the Sphere life Drain hit Rainya, since it hits area?
We are stuck in melee, and that is not our strong point, as we don't have much in the way of melee skills yet.>Shee>Attack (tentacle lash)>Rainya (Storm of Fire, thugs)Keep firing, however concentrate on clearing a path away from Donni
>>38061243I would think so, since we're shaping it into a sphere.
>>38061126Shee>Subtle Talent: Enhance Ability (Strength)>Area Lash>Liquid FormRainya>Attack(Keep shooting)
>>38061257We should teleport to get some distance or get away rather than continue to let ourselves be surrounded.
>>38061261A cone would still work pretty great.
>>38061126Teleport us out of this circle. Being surrounded is not good.
>>38061236>>38061243Hopefully we'd aim it an area that doesn't have a Rainya in it. We could change it to a cone, those usually work better at not hitting allies in close-quarters anyway, even if it would hit fewer thugs.

I hope you guys noticed the confirmation that he can't be Reunited.
>>38061553Might be he is, Jagganatha might bend the rules on this one because he likes a good fight and its his boy we're up against.
>>38061553Ok cite it for me cause I missed it.
>>38061579He refers to the fact we got Favour in this confrontation, normally Favour can't be handed out during a confrontation between Reunited, according to the Five after we killed Tom.
>>38061579Not him, but iirc there was something about the five not interfering in fights between Reunited by granting them gifts during the fight.Though, Jaggie might have decided that we weren't yet fighting a Reunited, just a group of thugs.
>>38061603>Not him, but iirc there was something about the five not interfering in fights between Reunited by granting them gifts during the fight.We choose to accept the gift.They can award things for actions in the fight, to be granted after it resolves.They can't reward powers mid fight.
