Lirael...Liraels faces is inches from your own and you can see tears forming in her eyes even as her heart beat and breathing speed up “No, no” she says “Shee I want us to be together forever!”“Lirael” you say gently “once we find your parents” if we do you think, but don’t say it “then they might be staying here, or they might not, I mean after all didn’t you live most of your life on spaceships, travelling around, what if they intend to go back to doing that?”“Then you come with us!” insists Lirael“I have things I need to do here” you say “the rebellion, the Reunited-”“You don’t even care about the rebellion!” says Lirael “and if you leave this world you won’t be a part of this dumb reunited thing either.”“I have friends here” you point out to Lirael “I’m not abandoning them.”“Rainya can come too” says Lirael “and the others...” she sniffs “will manage somehow.”“Lirael...” you start.
“No!” she says, hugging you tight, wrapping her wings around you “I’m not leaving you Shee, ever, you belong to me!”Rainya has gone still again, as if watching for your reaction.Your response?>Alright Lirael, we’ll always be together>I’m not going to make a promise I can’t keep Lirael, you know me better than this>You’ll be spending the rest of the day alone in your room as punishment for your tantrum young lady>Other (what?)
>>38172286>I’m not going to make a promise I can’t keep Lirael, you know me better than this>Maybe we can convince your parents to stay here in my realm, whatever happens, I'm not going to let us be seperated lightly Lirael, that much I promise you
>>38172279>I’m not going to make a promise I can’t keep Lirael, you know me better than this.But I am sure we can find out something that works.>I have my place here with Rainya
This is not going to be pretty
>>38172530Thank you for your keen insight Cptn. Obvious.
>>38172543I am here to serve
“I’m not going to make a promise I can’t keep Lirael, you know me better than this” you say gently to the young girl in your arms. As Lirael pulls a face at you, you add “Maybe we can convince your parents to stay here in my realm, whatever happens, I'm not going to let us be separated lightly Lirael, that much I promise you” Focusing your attention on her you can feel Lirael getting calmer.“Hmm, ok” says Lirael, still clinging to you “You’re mine and I love you and I’m not letting go of you lightly either.”You hug Lirael to you and stroke her hair, too full of happiness and pleasure to argue “Are we good?”“Yeah” says Lirael, sighing “We’re good.”You notice Rainya has left the room.Go after her?>Y/NLirael comes with you?>Y/NSecond vote only matters if Yes wins the first vote.
>>38172530We should have just nodded and smiled and let her believe whatever she wanted to believe. Not like her parents are alive anymore probably
>>38172561>Y>Let Lirael decide on her own
>>38172561NYSent Lirael after her alone.
>>38172561>Y>N>>38172578That sort of thing doesn't really work if the kid you're talking to has a perception mod of more than +20 and reads our mind on a regular basis.Even if we wanted to be anything less than completly honest to Lirael, we really can't.
>>38172561>N>Ask Baalzamon for relationship help.
>>38172720"Balzie, how do I do everyone?"
>>38172792We'd need to ask King for that, he's the one who suggested the Harem.Baalzamon would probably suggest addicting Rainya to our bite.
>>38172792>LIE TO THEM!>AKAKAKAKAKKAKAKAKAKKAKA
>>38172815I'm ok with that.
>>38172815Let's ask neither of them.
>>38172851I have the feeling we would get the best relationship advice from Jagganatha, he seems like the type who understands the ladies.
>>38172851Let's ask Mom.
>>38172867>Flex at them until they stop exhibiting problem behavior. Also be direct about stuff.>If this does not solve your problems, you didn't want them in the first place.
>>38172889>If this does not solve your problems, then you need to flex harder
“I’m glad” you say “now I need to-”“Chase after your girlfriend” says Lirael with a knowing look “I’ll go check on Kaelyn, make sure that you’re not interrupted.”Before you can think of a response to that, Lirael skips out of the room, humming happily to herself.You head out after Rainya, catching up with her some ways down the beach. She’s striding along, he back hunched and her arms hugging herself.“Rainya-” you start“Don’t talk to me!” she says “I am so mad at you right now!”“Why?” you ask, walking alongside her “You know why!” she snaps“I don’t” you insists “I’m not going to lie to the kid, and who knows, maybe her parents are going to stick around for a bit and-”Rainya stops in her tracks and stares at you disbelievingly “You think this is about her parents coming to stay?”“Uh...no?” you say, you’re still not sure entirely what Rainya is mad about, there’s no way she could be jealous of a child like Li-“It’s because you love her and not me!” screams Rainya “What you feel for her isn’t even real its just vampire bites or whatever but you treat her with more love and affection than anyone else!”Uh...what?“What?” you say“As soon as Lirael gets upset you drop everything to help her!” continues Rainya “But the last time you and I had an argument your entire response was *I’m not going to change Rainya, deal with it*, well I guess I know who you care about now, and who you’re just fooling around with!” You can see tears in her eyes.Your response>Liraels a child, I thought you weren’t>The two situations are totally different, Liraels like a sister, you’re more than that to me>I told you I loved you, it got awkward>I love you Rainya>Oh, is this the whole argument about me not throwing you into danger again?>Other (what?)
>>38172979Um, what? Shee told her she loved her a few days ago. She said it was to soon then. What the hell is this girl's problem? It's not even the same kind of love.
>>38172979I know you are not okay with, but I don't know what else to do, there are just no good options.I really like her, I do, but its nothing like the way you make me feel and its not because of the addiction either. You have no idea how much I've struggled with coming to terms with the addiction, I just wish it wasn't there, but it is, and I wish you didn't have to see this side of me.There's so many things happening that sucks right now, and this is a battle I'd rather not have to pick.I hate this addiction, I hate this reunited game, I hate how Devs parents got killed, that Ash is depressed, that the safest place we had got taken from us. There's isn't a whole lot of light points in my life right now, but you and Lirael. I can't handle all this right now if you also hate me. Why is all this so hard, why can't I just help people.*Sit in the and and cry*
>>38172979WHAT? WE LITERALLY JUST TOLD LIRAEL WOULDN'T COMPROMISE OURSELVES ABOUT THIS. THE FUCK?!>>38172979>I just told Lirael the exact same thing I told you. That I don't make promises I can't keep. That I can not make everything happen the way everyone would be happiest with but I will try, and I promised you I would help you get stronger so we can fight together. Just like I promised her I would do what I can so we can stay together.>I love you Rainya, but you are being absurd right now
>>38172979What is she even trying to say here? She's contradicting herself all over the place.
>>38172979>Liraels a child, I thought you weren’t
>>38173092That's women for you. If one is bad enough, imagine four of them in one.
>>38172979>The two situations are totally different, Lirael's like a sister.
>>38173098Now you're just being a dick on purpose aren't you?
>>38172979>The two situations are totally different, Liraels like a sister or a daughter, you’re more than that to me>I love you Rainya
>>38172979>"Can I love only one person?"
>>38173125So this is only going to get worse as her power grows?
>>38172979>Rainya, I told you I love you. And I meant it. If you are hurt or upset, I have and always will do everything to make it right for you. But don't, ever again, suggest my love for Lirael is because of the addiction or any less real. She is a child Rainya. Yes I give her as much affection as she wants, because she needs it. I want to give you the same, its a different kind of love, because Lirael is like a little sister, sometimes even my daughter to me. But I love you no less, BUT you are an adult Rainya. And I still didn't promise her any more or less than I did to you, that I can't promise to make everything happy forever but I will try my best.
>>38173046You should have known that when she said "Oh wow, I thought you were just going to say that I was someone you wanted to have fun with. It's kinda too soon." what she really wanted was for us to tell her that that's wrong and we love her more than anything.
>>38173149What? It's true, Rainya can't compete with Lirael for not being a childPedo Shee is best SheeNeedless to say, this post is a joke.
>>38172979>I just told Lirael the exact same thing I told you. That I don't make promises I can't keep. That I can not make everything happen the way everyone would be happiest with but I will try, and I promised you I would help you get stronger so we can fight together. Just like I promised her I would do what I can so we can stay together.>I love you Rainya, but you are being absurd right now
>>38173165Much, much worse.
So different situations + telling Rainya you love her seem to the options with the most votes, plus a healthy dose of confusion.
>>38172979>I told you I loved you, it got awkward
>>38173234Maybe a bit of crying.I dunno, maybe we should check on her mind, because this shit isn't normal and sort of contradictionary to her character otherwise.
>>38173230>All rainyas have the same cycle because they're the same personAbandon all hope.
Wow. Is it even worth it if we're to have to have this stupid conversations with her over and over?
>>38173262I second this
>>38173289It's at least once for every Rainya, anon.
>>38173289I honestly suspect no matter who we choose we'd be having 'some' stupid conversation over and over.
Could you imagine being Dev here?I think I'd have gone Mech-sexual by now if I was him.
>>38173262Yeah, some crying might be in order.The fuck is it always us we have to hold everyone and ourselves together? Nobody ever comes to comfort Shee...
>>38173262I'm not seeing it as contradicting, but I am pretty tired and not really thinking clearly right now. An anon called something like this earlier, even if he was a bit off in what caused it.>>38173289>quests.jpg
>>38173314>Fuck this shit, I'll build my own.
>>38173289I'm okay with it.Its also nice to not to do hack and slash or just resource management all the time
I keep trying to find a way to have this make sense as somehow Baalzamon having twisted our fixing Quinn wish into taking "something" from Rainya. But nope. Not even that excuse.>>38173341>I'm not seeing it as contradictingIt really sort of is. She is normally pretty rational about these things, I would have expected a lot harsher freakout on her part when she found out Lirael is a vampire.I mean I can get she'd be feeling different if her aqccusation were actually the case. If we had promised Lirael, yes, we are going to stay together no matter what, then this would make sense. But the opposite happened.>>38173314I have the maddest respect for Dev.
If anything we should be asking her what the hell she feels about Shee. Shee's aalready told her she loves her and has proven on many occassions that she's even ready to die for her. Honestly I was under the impression Rainya even cared about Lirael just as much as Shee. This level of jealousy seems like it's coming from nowhere.
>>38173423That pretty much surprises me too, she clearly cared a lot about Lirael.I could see that when you mad you say stupid shit you don't mean, but this is really unwarranted.Especially since Shee has really gone out of her way to make sure Rainya has nothing to complain about in terms of handing ou affection. I can't remember anytime Shee neglected her in favour of Lirael.This feels like that time Lirael had been brainwashed.
“The two of you are completely different” you say “the way I feel about you is totally different, I love Lirael like a sister but you’re more to me than that Rainya, I love you and I want to be with you and-”You reach for Rainyas arm she slaps your hand away “don’t touch me!” she hisses “I’m so, wait...what, you did what, you crazy bitch!” Rainya stands still all of a sudden as if her attention is elsewhere and then she screams in rage and starts running down the beach, back towards the beach house, and where her doubles, and Kaelyn were playing, about half a kilometre away.You feel Liraels thoughts touch yours –Shee there’s a problem, Rainya and Kaelyn are fighting, no wait, Kaelyn just knocked one of the Rainyas out, the other two are attacking her now-Your response?>Teleport there>Grab the Rainya near you, get her to explain>Lirael, separate them>Other (what?)
>>38173487>Lirael, separate themSadly we are in no shape to do so.>Grab the Rainya near you, get her to explain
>>38173487>Grab the Rainya near you, get her to explain>Lirael, separate them
>>38173314Guys surrounded by grimdark, ancient god shit, duster life, a blood thirsty cop wiped out his family as collateral damage, was mind controlled once by the serec. He joined the rebels to want to improve things for dusters, however he now wonders how sane they are.Smahed by the reapers despair, faced an army of raving beastman, had to watch hia friend bargin with ancient hods to save all their lives.Now his rebel friends have relationship problems from a soap opera.He manages to stay mostly sane and even keeled despite this.Are we sure he only has a 10 wisdom?
>>38173487This is turning into space-fantasy Jerry Springer...
>>38173525He's got drama oil on his feathers or something. This shit just roll on off him.
>>38173487>Grab the Rainya near you, get her to explain>Lirael, separate them>>38173525We need to do something good for Dev. He does not deserve this shit.
>>38173393Think about how we handled Rainya's problem and then how we handled Lirael's problem.With Lirael, we were more willing to promise to try and help her, I guess, while with Rainya we danced around it a lot more. I think that's what's upsetting her. Maybe. Like I said, really tired right now.
Ok, I guess this makes more sense now. Fucking Kae did it.Shoulda seen this shit coming when we didn't immediately devote time to fixing the bullshit between her and Rainya...
will be a slight delay before next update
>>38173559Not really. We didn't dance around it at all. We straight up told her, no, we aren't going to let you die in our fights.We want to fight together with you, but that isn't always possible.We just needed to keep repeating it because she didn't want to hear it.No, I don't think its really about Lirael at all.Especially since Rainya seemed completly okay with the conversation, up until we came out and she was mad all of a sudden.
>>38173487>Grab the Rainya near you, get her to explain>Lirael, separate them and explain.
>>38173610I don't recall us saying anything like *I'll help you get stronger* or *I'll do everything in my power to make you stronger so we can fight together* in that conversation with Rainya, which she probably wanted to hear, when with Lirael we just said "I can't promise that, but I'll do everything in my power to keep us from being separated".
Is it time for the lesbian bed death where Shee and Rainya both start refusing to sleep with eachother out of spite and then that turns into refusing to fuck because of the refusal to fuck which never ends?
>>38173645Have they even had sex yet? I can't remember.
>>38173670Nope, though they've slept in the same bed a few times.
>>38173670Yeah, they have.>>38173686She tentacle fucked her several times. Once or twice without even realizing it was happening.
>>38173670...No mutual sex yet, but we've let our tentacles go wild on her at least once or twice.
>>38173640> “could you get stronger? Yes, of course. And I will help, so we *can* fight side by side, because I want thatWe flat out told her at the beginning we would help her get stronger so she can fight by our side.We didn't tell Lirael "everything in my power" either.So no, we didn't treat them any different.>>38173645>implying Rainya could resist the T for long
>>38173701I thought that bit where Lirael said, "that was fast. And quiet," implied they had.
>>38173640>I don't recall us saying anything like *I'll help you get stronger*We did though. And the very first thing we did next day was arranging to help her get stronger.
>>38173699>>38173701Uh, no? Rainya gets off on the tentacles because it's her fetish (like with the massage), but there hasn't been any sex as far as I can recall.>>38173716You thought wrong, that was just kissing and moderate groping.
>>38173772I guess it depends on what you consider "sex", Shee hasn't put her tentacles into her yet. But her tentacles did rub her special places until she orgasmed, which I'm fairly sure you could consider having sex.
>>38173772Oh, yeah, it totally wasn't sex all the times the tentacles went into her pants and rubbed on her junk until she orgasmed. That was totally that other thing that isn't sex.
>>38173705>>38173727Rereading through the conversations, it still makes sense to me that Rainya would get upset, I don't know if that's just my brain being weird though and I can't really express it. We'll just have to wait and see what happens, I don't think Pally would make a character behave OOC.
>>38173850I can't see how that makes sense. I can't wrap my head around that, we explicitly made the same amount of promise to Lirael we did to Rainya.There is really no difference, except Lirael accepted we couldn't do everything we want but we are going to try our best, and Rainya didn't.Or actually that isn't even true, because she HAD accepted it, and the main issue was that Rainya was upset because she had the feeling Shee didn't rely on her and tried to do everything by herself.So this doesn't even relate to that.I'm honestly not sure anymore if this is a mental influence thing or we somehow awakened the Yandere inside of Rainya.
>>38173552>We need to do something good for Dev. He does not deserve this shit.Can't really do too much for him, unless we perhaps start trying to do more for Dust town, somehow. That is what he wanted to do, help people.As the only mundane, his power is limited.When your friends can tell reality to shut up and sit down, being able to fix stuff and improve tech seems minor. And pilot a sweet mech.
>>38173850I feel like its pretty natural too
>>38173801>>38173796You could read it like that, but I don't recall it ever being explicitly mentioned during the massage that the tentacles were rubbing against those places in particular, I think Rainya just really, really liked being massaged by tentacles.I know they rubbed against places at times, but I don't recall them doing it to the point that I would consider it sex, just as a teasing thing or because they felt like being in that area for no reason in particular.I guess it's down to how you interpret what's actually written and whether you count whatever-the-name-of-this-would-be as a sex act.
>>38173922>unless we perhaps start trying to do more for Dust townI think we should do that once we have our money.And if he can work there, that would make him feel better, and give him a good excuse to vanish when the girls have their hissy fits for Shee to sort out.
>>38173954When we lifted one of her during the spar the tentacles explicitly "went under her clothes" and "left no part unmolested".There is really no way to read that different.
>>38173954At the very least it's heavy petting which is definitely considered a sex act.
>>38173957Charity is a good idea actuallyIt might even make the whole 'enslave and feed upon the duster' plan a lot harder if we could do it on a big enough scale
>>38173998Not even "charity" as such.To an extent yes, but more a "help them to help themselves".So the Dusters can try making something better out of Dust Town.
Fecundity of the Ocean.Plants from our realm are now real.Grow some fruit-bearing things that can live in the dustlands. Put them everywhere out there. It'd probably help a lot with the dust problem to actually have some plant life out there.
>>38174050Thats another thing, although we have to be careful with that.Probably best we research for plants that can do that.
>>38174069Or just make our own. Impossibility's a hell of a drug. Corruption could probably help here too. Magic plants that make the things around them not-shit would be pretty nice.
>>38173957Start a charity and have Dev as one of the management there?Emergency care and school type? He can also teach some?
>>38174086>Or just make our own.That was exactly my point, we shouldn't do that.Because if people hear about it, some with more education than the average Duster will find out that plant doesn't exist, and then start wondering where it comes from.Thats bad, there is enough weird plant life that there is definitly something actually existing we can grow.>>38174100He is the one with the second highest Int in the group, so why not.
What now? You wonder. You race after Rainya and grab her even as you think to Lirael –separate them, I’m on my way--Alright- says Lirael As you head down the beach, holding a spitting snarling Rainya by her arm you say “What’s wrong, what happened?”“That fae bitch!” rages Rainya “she messed with my head, try to get me to break up with you!”Why is your love life so complicated? You contemplate offering a prayer for help, then you imagine what each of the Four would advise. You head back to the beach house as fast as you can, Rainya almost dragging you behind her.---When you get there you see Lirael flying, holding a couple of Rainyas – one under each arm. There’s a Rainya laying on the sand, unconscious, but still breathing.A little ways away Kaelyn is sat down on a towel, her heard in her hands“What happened here?” you asl Lirael as she holds the two furious Rainyas“I dunno” says Lirael “I just, I noticed Rainyas emotions where all over the place and when I asked about it, everything got weird. Rainya got mad and Kae got upset and then Rainya attacked Kae.”Ok...“Rainya” you say “one body please.”“I’m going to strangle that fae bitch!” yells Rainya “Rainya, please” you say “just, please, do this for me?”You and Lirael hold the four Rainyas together, and suddenly there’s only 1 Rainya, though she’s still pretty mad.“Lirael would you mind taking Rainya back to the beach house for a bit, Rainya, please go with Lirael.” Rainya glares at you, and at Kaelyn but nods and follows Lirael.You sit down next to Kaelyn “So Kae, what happened?”“It’s my fault” she says, her head still in her hands “I shouldn’t have let it get this bad, I just couldn’t control it, I’m sorry.”“Control what?” you ask.Kaelyn looks up, her face stained with tears “Shee, I-” she gulps “Shee as a fae I feed of emotion, in dreams its easier.”“Ok” you say, waiting for her to explain.
“If I don’t feed often enough” she says “I...amplify the emotions of those around me, as well as making them feel what I feel.”“Go on...” you say, this is making sense, a little.“I haven’t fed off anyone’s dreams for days” says Kaelyn “I thought I could control it but...”“But it started leaking?” you ask“Yes” admits Kaelyn “I guess it just got really bad today, sorry.”“And so Rainya...?” you ask“Is feeling whatever she’s feeling multiplied in strength a few times” says Kaelyn sadly “plus maybe a bit of jealousy from me. I told her what was happening and she got angry.”Or maybe Rainyas own jealousy has just been amplified you think, and who wouldn’t get angry when their emotions are being messed with.“I feel fine” you say “Lirael doesn’t seem affected, or Dev.”“You are Lirael are pretty strong-willed” says Kaelyn “Dev...I don’t know why Dev wasn’t affected, maybe he’s just a calm person.”Well that explains things a little but-“So where do we go from here?” you ask “I’m not sure I want to have everyone arguing all the time.”“I’ll go” says Kaelyn sadly “I’ll just, I’ll go and live somewhere far away.” Geez, martyr much Princess?“So if you can’t feed often” you say “does this affect your powers?”Kaelyn shrugs “I believe that...part-fae aren’t at risk of dying from not feeding” she says “But yes, my energies will return more slowly if I don’t feed on emotions regularly, and also stuff like this will happen.”Your response?>You should have warned us>We need to find you someone to feed on>Ok, yeah, you living elsewhere is good, far away (The Ichor in the Depths does not approve of this)>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this out>Other (what?)
>>38174235>Dev confirmed for having super Zen>>38174235>You should have warned us>We need to find you someone to feed on>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this outHey Dev, want a sexy fae girl appear in your dreams?
>>38174235>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this outGo clubbing regularly? It's probably a veritable feast for her that has minimal effect on the people around her.
>>38174235>You should have warned us>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this out>We need to find you someone to feed onMaybe it was amplifying Dev's "I'll just stay the fuck out of that" feelings.
>>38174235>You should have warned us>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this out
>>38174235>You should have warned us>We need to find you someone to feed onMaybe Dev? It's not harmful, right? And he's the least affected. Or Yonsul. She seemed pretty eager to help Kae.
>>38174235>>You should have warned us>>We need to find you someone to feed on
>>38174235>You should have warned usGet a little mad>We need to find you someone to feed on>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this outBut you're not going to be around or mess with my girlfriend again!Why can't you feed on those you used too?
>>38174235>You should have warned us>We need to find you someone to feed on>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this outThank the Five we let Dev have his own job.
>>38174235>You should have warned us>We need to find you someone to feed on>How did you used to deal with this? Don't you have some feeders or, something?
>>38174235>We need to find you someone to feed on>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this out>You should have warned usI'm not sure I believe her this was completly uninentional though.
>>38174235>You’re staying with us, we’ll figure this outLirael or Yonsul?
>>38174364Yeah. Me either. It'd be nice to get Rainya some kind of defense against this sort of thing. Not sure if that's possible though.
>>38174235>>We need to find you someone to feed on>>Your staying with us.Dev's about rhe most normal out of anyone I know, maybe he just has a weirdness filter?
>>38174398Apparently maxing out her willpower like with Lirael helped.
>>38174392I wonder if Yonsul would be down with letting her feed on random scumbags who get arrested every few days.>>38174364Yeah, I really doubt it was 100% unintentional as well. Probably not 100% malicious either. Still scummy tho.
>>38174392Definitly not Lirael. Not sure how Yonsul would feel about anything involving feeding, but I guess we could mention it.
>>38174431What about Ash? They kind of get along.
I can't remember if dream-feeding is addictive or whether it has negative effects as a necessary part of it or that was the result of being uncaring and stupid on the Fae's part.
>>38174481iirc, it's somewhat pleasurable and it's impossible to kill someone with it, but reckless overfeeding causes the victim to go crazy.
>>38174481Repeated feeding over a vedry long period does, short term should not as stated by Kae in the first dream talk info dump.
>>38174463Not really? She pretty much forgot about him the next day.She didn't dislike him or anything, but after he didn't seem to hang around with Shee anymore from Kaes perspective, she pretty much just considered him "one of Quinns guys".We don't really know what it all entails, so who knows?Its at least nominally dangerous though and you'd need to trust the fae to restrain themselves, I don't think I would like asking that of him.
>>38174514I thought that was excessively frequent long-term feeding that caused insanity?
We should probably tell her in no uncertain terms to stay out of Rainya's head though.
>>38174364No, I think she knew what was happening.And we should sternly tell her that this is not going to happen again
>>38174538Kae said "as far she's been told" if you restrict it to every few days per person it isn't harmful.But the whole line pretty strongly implied thats rpobably untrue.So we should assume longterm dream feeding does cause damage.
>>38174514She actually said "it takes years before it gets that bad", so short term does cause some damage, we just don't know how fast and how much, it just takes years to go completly crazy.
>>38174580Dream-feeding just makes it easier, maybe we could get Empathic Projection and use it on a lot of people in a club and let her feed off those emotions without it causing harm?
>>38174632I think regular clubbing might work?We'd need to find out how much she actually needs.
Why don't we just have her feed on the shadow vampire we're about to kidnap?
>>38174666Because we haven't kidnapped him yet? And because those seem to be able to fight back in their dreams.And thats a short term solution, since we aren't going to be keeping him around.
>>38174666Then we'd have to find someone to feed the shadow vampire with.
“You should have warned us” you say “we could have been prepared, we could have found some way for you to feed, we could have helped.”Kaelyns head comes up and she gives you a look filled with a lifetime of self-assured pride “I wasn’t going to ask you to provide me with everything” she says in a cool tone “I was ready to pull my own weight.” You angrily bite back a reply about her making things worse instead.“And yet” you say, picking your words with care, and trying to keep an even tone “it seems you still need to find some way to feed, it would seem.”“It won’t be a problem” Kaelyn assures you, her expression still cold “As I said, I will be moving out soon.”“You’re staying with us” you say “first of all, you’re a friend” and part of you whispers *and family* “and if you go elsewhere, don’t you think your father will take it as an excuse to capture you by claiming you and I have nothing to do with one another?”Kaelyn opens her mouth to reply, and then pauses. In the silence that follows you say “so how did you used to feed anyway?”“Oh my father paid professionals” says Kaelyn “only the best of course.”“There are people who act as dream feeders for a living?” you ask“Indeed” says Kaelyn, nodding her head “they practise controlling their emotional, inciting them or calming them as required.”“And how does feeding of emotions work?” you ask “I mean, does it, I dunno, drain them or something?”
Kaelyn quirks an eyebrow at you “It can” she says “You’ve seen the dream eaten?” you nod as she continues “Pathetic almost mindless wretches with no emotions, none to speak of anyway. Yes, feeding of another’s emotions does drain them a little, it’s not a permanent harm, their minds recover, the dream eaten are the product of years of draining, typically done recklessly, or my groups of fae feeding from the same person. A feeding once a week or so is harmless, though I need to feed every day, or at least every other day.” So 3 or 4 dream feeders then...“Is there no other way?” you ask. Kaelyn considers this“It’s not a skill I ever thought to learn” she says “but some fae can feed off groups, there the drain is spread amongst a crowd so its far less harmful, though the crowd usually need to be feeling the same type of emotion.” Ok, so maybe a lot of clubbing could help. “It might take me weeks to learn though” adds Kaelyn.“And, I’m told” says Kae “That if a persons normal emotions are heightened, amplified, they’re easier to feed on, and drained less. It’s what I’ve been told, I’m not sure if it’s true.” Ok, so maybe by messing with someone’s emotions you can make them less drained.“I thought you could only feed in dreams” you say “so either way, we need to find you someone willing to dream, right?”“If I developed the skill of feeding from crowds” says Kaelyn, “that is always done awake, not sleeping, and if I fed off...someone I felt close to then I could do it awake.”Your response?>I guess we can hire dream feeders for you>Can’t you just skim Hivers dreams without their permission?>You need to learn crowd-feeding>We will feed you (who?) – assuming the person is ok with it>Other (what?)
>>38174749>You need to learn crowd-feeding>How expensive are those dream feeders?
>>38174749>I guess we can hire dream feeders for you>Here is half a mil, you think we can hire some dream people with that until we figure something out?>otherIf you ever mess with Rainya again, then I'm not sure I can keep my emotions in check...
>>38174749>You need to learn crowd-feeding>I guess we can hire dream feeders for you
>>38174749>You need to learn crowd-feedingBut in the meantime,>I guess we can hire dream feeders for youWe have loads of money and not much to spend it on. What with having a steady income and our own realm where we can make anything we want.
>>38174749>>I guess we can hire dream feeders for you>>You need to learn crowd-feeding>>We will feed you (who?) – assuming the person is ok with itI would ask dev maybe, or maybe lirael, and yonsul once in a while.Pay for pro's too, need to to learn mass feeding however.
>>38174749>Other (what?)What about feeding on people Yonsul arrests? I imagine that angry people get angrier when they get arrested.
>>38174749>You need to learn crowd-feeding>I guess we can hire dream feeders for youMaybe we can mention the issue to Yonsul, see how she reacts.She might like it.
>>38174749>I guess I could ask Baalzamon for help...
>>38174749While we are at the topic of money, did we already get that? Since it isn't updatet on the charsheet.Its something we probably need to track for larger expenses.Like this will most likely be, because I imagine 3-4 professional dream feeders aren't cheap.
>>38174749>Other (what?)>Just tell me if it doesn't work like that at all, but what if I made some kind of giant "emotionwell" thing, kinda like a chaoswell but not, in my Realm? Could that work?
I wonder how much cash we could make by growing exotic fruits and other plants in our realm and selling them. There's probably some fancyass spices that would go for tons.
>>38174961Thats a thing we could consider once we have Physics be Damned.
>>38174996How much does PBD cost? Because if that's all we need to make a giant fae-feeder, then I'm all for it.
>>38174996Maybe she can feed on our realms population, that is once we make them
>>38174749>Other (what?)What if I make people in my realm? Think you could feed on those?
>>38174985We could at least improve the restaurant's quality with it. We can make food you really can't get anywhere else.
>>38175003I actually think it doesn't cost anything.It didn't have the "Costs XP" like some of the others.But I also don't think it can do that.I'm fairly sure however a good dosis of Imposibility might allow for making something like that, maybe make our outflowing emotions liquid or something.>>38175042It would definitly safe costs and time on that "exotic meals" service we have.
>>38174996I'm worried that doing so could cause some weird shit to happen in meatspace, if we can even do it.
“Well you definitely need to learn crowd-feeding” you say “in the mean time we’ll hire you some dream feeders.”“That is acceptable” says Kaelyn “Do you think I should apologise to Rainya, I treated her rather badly after all...”“Maybe after she’s calmed down” you say “And for crowd-feeding” says Kaelyn “I can go out clubbing.”“Not alone though” you say “just in case something happens, you should have someone with you.”Kaelyn nods “That makes sense” she says, smiling at you, seeming happier “Thank you Shee, I don’t know what I would do without you, I’m so grateful that you’ve been so kind to me, I wonder how I can ever repay you...” she says, looking at you from heavy-lidded eyes. Ah yes, that reminds you, maybe Rainya had cause to feel a little jealous, you wonder if Kaelyns flirting so far has been harmless, or manipulation, or something more.“Well now that’s decided” you say, looking at the beach house “Maybe I should....”What?>Talk to Rainya now>Let Rainya calm down first, then talk>Ask Kaelyn about the flirting>Don’t ask right now>Other (what?)>>38174959Its in the business paste, I could move it to the character sheet if people would prefer
>>38175064Fuck the rules; emotionwell now
>>38175017>>38175035I'm still against making a population.
>>38175042I was think that too.Ms Carter did say they catered to special tastes, even offworld ones. We can now make truely unique and tailored foods
>>38175076>Let Rainya calm down first, then talk
>>38174749Should we just get population in our realm?
>>38175076>Let Rainya calm down first, then talk>Ask Kaelyn about the flirting
>>38175076>Let Rainya calm down first, then talk>Tell Kaelyn to tone down the suggestivness until Rainya has calmed down, that would be helpful
>>38175098Didn't that cost XP? We have more important things to spend XP on than something we can solve with money.
>>38175076>Let Rainya calm down first, then talk>Ask Kaelyn about the flirtingAsk her to back off a little. Shee's with Rainya and she needs to respect that.
>>38175076>Maybe after she calmed down?!!You damn better apologise! And it better be sincereAlso you're not gonna be around Rainya until this is sorted out >Ask Kaelyn about the flirting>Talk to Rainya now
>>38175122Making them real so they could have emotions and dreams does cost XP.>>38175116Because I'm opposed to making people just to serve Shee.And our world isn't really aplace where a larger number of people could have a fulfilling life.
>>38175126I second telling her to back off a little, because we don't want Rainya to be jelly
>>38175158Its not really a place where any number of people could have a fulfilling life.I prefer making smarter sea-monster to serve as our help once we are expanding.
>>38175247Sea-people you say? I have just the inspiration;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._P._Lovecraft_bibliography
>>38175076>Its in the business pasteThanks, hadn't seen it.
“Yes about that” you say “the flirting, why I mean, you’re cute and I’m a little flattered, but why?”Kaelyn lays a hand softly on you cheek “Am I so ugly that you’d turn me away?” she says, biting her bottom lip, her eyes wide.“That’s what I’m talking about, that” you say “why?”Kaelyn gives you a considering look “because you’re interesting” she says “All this stuff happening around you, the Reunited, your involvement with everything recently, I think being near you would put me right in the heart of some really exciting moments.”“You’re my friend” you point out “I think you’ll be involved in some fairly weird stuff anyway.”“Also your emotions are...muted” says Kaelyn “I wonder if in the heat of the moment you’ll flare up like a smouldering bonfire, or if you’re just a calm person normally, like I said, interesting, and something of a puzzle to me.”“In case you hadn’t noticed” you say, removing her hand from your cheek “Rainya and I are...”“On the outs?” says Kaelyn, grinning.“Together” you say pointedly“For now yes” says Kaelyn “besides, who says you have to buy, you can always try me before we make a long-term commitment after all.”Aaaargh!You get up and walk away “Well as long as you’ve cheered up” you say stiffly, walking away.“Where are you going?” asks Kaelyn “Not going for a round of *make-up* with Rainya”“Not yet” you fire back over your shoulder.Where are you going? It’s currently early evening>Evening in with family>I have shadow-vampires to hunt>Other task (see to-do list above)
>>38175422>I have shadow-vampires to hunt
>>38175422>Evening in with family>Plan shadow vamp hunting with the group
>>38175422>Evening in with family
>>38175422>Evening in with family>Plan shadow vamp hunting with the group>>38175449We are one stiff breeze away from death. We can't hunt any shadow vamps in our current shape.
>>38175422Actually,>round of *make-up*
>>38175422>otherI think I'd like to be a little alone for once
>>38175422>Get some good drinks with Dev and make a mechanics station or combat simulator with him, Lirael can come tooWe're gonna make our own tree house now, no girls allowed.
>>38175422>Evening in with familyfollowed by>round of *make-up*
>>38175519Haha, I like this idea.
>>38175422>>Evening in with family>>38175519and this.Any Pe we still have should go to healing before we sleep. Also try and use our impossibility to break the seals on our teleport powers.
>>38175611>Any Pe we still have should go to healing before we sleep.We can't heal with PE. How often does that need to be said?Psychic healing doesn't even cost PE anyway.
Evening in with family just beats out the boys club treehouse, sorry everyone, more emotional stuff ahead
Poor Dev. House full of pretty girls and they're all either too young or they want Shee.
>>38175422>>38175455>>38175648I even change my vote for it!Surely we have time for the tree hosue before evening with family?
>>38175673>orUnless you meant to say Lirael doesn't want Shee because she already got her.
>>38175648Why are you sorry?Emotional stuff is best stuff
>>38175731I like emotional stuff, but building a a fighting simulator base on a giant tree beats out emotional stuff by a wide margin.
>>38175648Can you at least make Shee show some emotion this time? Either a bit crying or throwing things in rageI voted for crying earlier
>>38175673I guess it a good thing he has good emotional control then. Guy could get frustrated otherwise.
>>38175686sorry, maybe tomorrow, I'll add it to the to-do list
>>38175782>Rhydian will never join us in our giant tree house
>>38175766Uh What are you talking about, Shee's been fine.
>>38175122We have 2 vampires (not that I think we Need to move Ash in but the posabilety is there) and a fae, on top of that Dev could use them to make stuff.
>>38175851I fail to see how that relates to the population question?Are you suggesting we make a slave race to only exist to feed our fae/vampires?
>>38175766I didn't because I thought he'd put it in anyway and I didn't have to state support.>>38175777That actually makes me wonder if he has a gimmick. Maybe he's some kind of born druid, but he hasn't awoken to it yet because Apollyon is practically a dead world?>>38175851All of those can be solved with the real superpower of money and are still way less important than other XP things as they have alternate solutions.We are not using our population as spare parts for Dev's machinations, he is not a mad scientist.
>>38175851I'm sure Dev will enjoy greatly being helped by a bunch of sentient constructs without free will. Sounds like the kind of thing he'd be totally for.
You’ve had enough of rampant emotions and relationships for one night. You and your friends eat a quiet meal together and watch some holos to unwind.Throughout it all Rainya speaks only sparingly, and to you, not at all. When you all sit down to watch some holos Rainya takes a chair far away from you, and concentrates on the holo. You’re a little hurt, after all whether Rainya is angry or embarrassed or whatever she is feeling it wasn’t your fault, or even hers really.Kaelyn seems reserved, perhaps embarrassed by her actions today, or possibly just trying to hold her emotional influence or whatever in.Lirael seems happy and joins you on the sofa, cuddling up to you.Dev seems utterly unaffected by everyone’s mood, or possibly he just doesn’t notice, being his usual genial self.You try and concentrate on the holo, other things can wait, for now. You don’t know what to feel, you’re so used to just holding it together and dealing with problems that you rarely let your emotions go, are you angry with Kaelyn, yeah a little, frustrated with Rainya, probably. Maybe spending an evening fixing stuff with Dev would have been simpler.In your mind you can hear Liraels voice –I can help you- she says-With what?- you think back-With Rainya- Lirael responds-I asked you not to do that- you point out, irritation colouring your response-Please, she’s broadcasting her emotions- says Lirael –It’s hard *not* to pick up on what she’s feeling right now, I could give you just a little peek-Your response>No peeking Lirael, just watch the holo>What are Rainyas emotions?>What is Rainya thinking?>Invite Rainya over to your sofa>Other (what?)
>>38175899>That actually makes me wonder if he has a gimmickMaybe if we spend some more time with him, we will get to see it.
>>38175915>No peeking Lirael, just watch the holo
>>38175915>No peeking Lirael, just watch the holo>Invite Rainya over to your sofa
>>38175848With all the crap that has been happening, the duster friends dying, loosing the facility, almost losing all our friends to the reaper, living in constant war with wanna-be gods and pretty much everyone else, killing Charon, every thing else I forgot and now girlfriend drama? How could you not get sad or angry or emotional
>>38175915>>No peeking Lirael, just watch the holo>Invite Rainya over to your sofa>>38175916Hopefully next time.
>>38175915>No peeking Lirael, just watch the holo>Invite Rainya over to your sofa>>38175916I'm trying, maybe we get to build something with him tomorrow. And can talk while doing that. I'd like to know what he thinks fo all the stuff currently going on. He used to be the one most ready to critisize us.
>>38175941Uncaring is the way to go.There was an option to feel more after charon's death, but no one liked him to pick the more emotive one, IIRC.
>>38175915I, no......Is she really mad at me Lirael?
>>38175915>What are Rainyas emotions?
>>38175915>No peeking Lirael, If you have advice for Rainya you can talk to her about it. If she wants you to tranclate you may but let her have a say.
>>38175915>No peeking Lirael, just watch the holo>Invite Rainya over to your sofaNo cheating, Lirael.
>>38175963>Uncaring is the way to go.I beg to differ, caring is what we do, and I think it would be fun to see how people would react with Shee breaking down
>>38175915>What are Rainyas emotions?>Invite Rainya over to your sofaHopefully Kae will take some iniative and apologize soon too.
>>38175915>No peeking Lirael, just watch the holo>Sit down next to Rainya
>>38176082>Hopefully Kae will take some iniative and apologize soon too.That sure would be nice
-No peeking- you think to Lirael –Just watch the holo--You’re being silly- responds Lirael, in amusement.To Rainya you say “There’s plenty of room here” and you pat the seat beside you invitingly. Dev doesn’t react but you hear Kaelyn shift a little as Rainya comes to sit beside you. Over the course of the last holo she inches closer to you, until eventually you’re lying on the sofa with both Lirael and Rainya cuddled up to you, none of you are talking, but you feel...content at least.That night Lirael sneaks into your bed, otherwise you would have been alone. You wonder what’s going on in Rainyas head.---You wake up next morning with a winged vampire girl snuggled up in bed with you, what’s today’s plan?You’re feeling healthier [HP 21/130]Shee's To Do List1.

>>38176353The shadow vamp we are hunting. And whatever amount of vamps we meet on the way.He's not going to come with us quietly.
>>38176353we have 21 hp any one of them could one shot us with shadow powers right now. Or with a suitably large gun.
>>38176362>He's not going to come with us quietly.Now, see, this si true. It also won't change regardless of doing it now or later.>>38176381Nevermind, I forgot.
>>38176381RoS is pretty much godmode against shadow vamps. If we can catch one somewhere by himself, we just have to activate RoS and slam the dude around with shadow tentacles for a few minutes.
>>38176318Sorry, Forgot the agro thing.
>>38176392>It also won't change regardless of doing it now or later.No, but later we have more HP, and we should just delegate this to people with more HP so we don't have to wait out.Hunting by ourselves, is stupid.>>38176395>RoS is pretty much godmode against shadow vamps.Its a fuckhuge blob of darkness. We are not going to have the luxury of turning RoS when trying to kindap that dude.
>>38176381We could try to research the shadow vampire without trying to get to much involved.Maybe grab a black suit and a telescope and lurk
>>38176395While true, we'd be very noticeable and they could easily perforate us with lasers or plasma. Or use other powers besides shadow to fuck with us. Or call in fae to help, which would bring Kae's dad running, he's waiting for us to fuck up.
>>38176234>8. Rainya and Shee timeTry to smooth things over with her. Maybe try to convince Kae that now would be a good time to apologize and explain.
Man-time in the treehouse it is, writing.Go after shadow vampires now, nothing can go wrong
>>38176425If only we had people helping us we could send out to do that sort of thing without endangering our wounded self. Wouldn't that be great?
>>38176458Just had an idea, Dev with a silenced sniper rifle loaded with tranq rounds designed for vampires. Zit, sleeping vamp we can run off with.
>>38176458I don't think going after them with <50hp is advisable, but at the same time I have a feeling we're going to end up waiting until the last second before they leave and it'll fuck us up so hard.
>>38176458we trust you[/spoier]
When was last time we contacted rebellion anyway? Didn't they already write us off already?
>>38176511>loaded with tranq rounds designed for vampiresPretty sure the shadow vamps aren't living vampires.>>38176531In this thread.
>>38176531>When was last time we contacted rebellion anyway?Today.>Didn't they already write us off already?They tried to guilt trip us into draining more chaos wells.
>>38176517Like we postponed with the chaoswell, and went ahead without a plan? Don't you think we learn from our mistakes?
>>38176511>we can run off withHow do you get to the vamp so you can grab him? Because I doubt they will be conveniently walking around, especially considering they aren't good with daylight.
>>38176546Bloodline has nothing to do with whether or not they're a living vampire.These specific shadow vampires probably aren't living, but shadow vampires in general can be either.
>>38176490The two most suited to it are unlikely to work well together and I don't want to send anyone alone.>>38176531At least pretend to read the thread.
>>38176550That would be a better argument if the chaoswell mission wouldn't have gone smooth as fuck.>>38176573And what makes you think I wasn't talking about these specific vamps that actually matter to us?
>>38176584Using "the" instead of "these" or "this" or "the ones we're going after".
>>38176546>Pretty sure the shadow vamps aren't living vampires.Pretty sure if they are an entire clan, some of them are. beside if Lirael can learn it while living so can they.>>38176566>How do you get to the vamp so you can grab him? Because I doubt they will be conveniently walking around, especially considering they aren't good with daylight.They might walk around at night (dev would need a good scope) But like I said just an idea.
>>38176546>>38176547>>38176549oh cool, thanks>>38176575joke's on you, it was actually previous thread.
>>38176584>That would be a better argument if the chaoswell mission wouldn't have gone smooth as fuck.It really didn't, it got Kae's dad after us with the whole loving her thing. Which is still biting us in the ass. This time we need as clean an exit as possible.
>>38176605>Pretty sure if they are an entire clan, some of them are.Yeah, but the entire Clan isn't here.
>>38176637>Yeah, but the entire Clan isn't here.True but I doubt they'd take only undead members. Mostly? Sure. All? Unlikely. But hey it was just an idea. More we think on it now the better.
>>38176634>It really didn't, it got Kae's dad after us with the whole loving her thing.How owuld have doing the mission earlier have made that any better?It wouldn't have, seriously anon don't ridiculous. The chaoswell mission went amazingly well.Even the end with Reaper was good for us, it got Kae on board with us.Would you have prefered not finding out about the Segmented Soul thing?
>>38176634>This time we need as clean an exit as possible.Our exit was pretty clean. The only part that got fucked was something we had no way of preventing or anticipating.And we dealt with it pretty good too.And the mission itself did go great. There is simply no reasonable argument to be made it didn't.Greater preperation wouldn't have prevented the issue at the chaoswell, and thats assuming you consider it a bad thing, which I don't.
>>38176661I would have preferred learning about it without having him watching the city waiting for a pretext to attack us. As soon as we step too far out of line(like with this abduction if things go bad) He's going to be on us like ugly on Beastman.
>>38176656Yeah sure somewhere there are aliving members. But its highly unlikely those are the ones they send here for this meeting, because non-living vampires have higher status.
>>38176708And how would we have done that? And when?There was basically no way for us to find out except by seeing it.
>>38176752well maybe the love/like thing would have helped. Pally did say what we said to her got him into a frothing rage.
What exactly is it we have to do with the shadow vamps and Lirael for Baalz again?
>>38176731Still wouldn't they need support staff and people for clerical things?>>38176793She needs to take the first steps to learning shadow vamp by week's end. We gotta kidnap and brainwash one to train her.
>>38176793capture the vampire and make it teach Lirael its vampire voodoo.
>>38176772Not really something we could have known beforehand either.Telling her about the Segmented Soul thing and having her subsequently leave him would have meant the same result in the end.
>>38176793Teach her Shadows 1.And then immediately make it into Void 1 as a loophole.
>>38176793Torture/bribe/mindfuck/convince/whatever it until it teaches Lirael the very basics of shadow magic and maybe a little bit more.Then we can either choose to go Primacy of Blood route and rewrite the shadow magic with Shee's own bloodline or we can choose to let Lirael become Baalzamon's new best friend and start a new clan of shadow vamps.
>>38176811>Still wouldn't they need support staffTheir human feeders. Yonsul already told us they organise the departure.
>>38176828>Lirael become Baalzamon's new best friend and start a new clan of shadow vamps.I still think this idea is not that bad.
>>38176869You've failed to present any reason why that idea isn't the worst fucking thing and we aren't starting this shit again. Baalzabitch go home.
How stupid would it be to try and use Assumption of Authority in our quest for a shadow vamp?
>>38176827Do it too soon and you fuck everything up for everyone.
>>38176869I suppose it depends on what you compare it with.Surely there are worse ideas, but that doesn't mean its not a bad idea.
>>38176869I don't either, but people are insanely suspicious of a god who Shee worships (even if he is a scumbag) and I like Void more anyway.
>>38176882Depends against who?We can't really pretend to be a member of their Clan.
>>38176827Need to wait on that till Kae is of age so we don't have her dad fuck us up.
>>38176911Why not?We have fangs and shadow powers
>>38176923This has nothing to do with Kae.
>>38176923No we don't?>>38176892To be fair, we should be suspicious of Baalzamon. It'd be stupid not to, and I'm fairly sure he'd be insulted.>>38176931We don't actually have any Shadow Powers, and then there is the problem we know absolutely nothing about them.
>>38176932The favor still does kind of, and if we renege he could use it to attack us again.
>>38176931We don't actually have any visible shadow powers that aren't RoS and I don't wanna burn that much PE just to show them that we can shadows too. We'd be able to make some darkness if we had another rank or two in Darkness, but that's it. Right now we just see good in the dark and magical darkness ain't no problem.
>>38176956But we don't renege, thats the point of the whole "capture the vampire" thing.
>>38176869Eh, people overreacted too hard to continue. See >>38176881>>38176892What does Void do again? Besides screw baal over?
>>38176992>What does Void do again? Besides screw baal over?Probably a slightly more reality-fuckery version of shadow control. We won't know until we got it.
>>38176887We just need to get him to confirm that the deal is complete and then we can do it.>>38176892It's not an unjustified level of suspicion.>>38176956It wouldn't be reneging. That's the best part. All we are obligated to do is get her started on the path. The deal stated nothing about what comes after. If our bloodline erases her shadow powers and replaces them with void, he can't say we reneged.
>>38176955>To be fair, we should be suspicious of Baalzamon. It'd be stupid not to, and I'm fairly sure he'd be insulted.Don't get me wrong, I am suspicious of him, I just don't think he wants to fuck us on every single little thing. Shee is far more valuable to him than pretty much every other person around. His avatar is the only other known character who is 100% for sure someone he'd fuck us over for. He wants us to succeed and he wants us to support him when we do it, the main problem is that he might fuck over those around us to drag us to the top and that's what I worry about most.>>38176956We aren't reneging. Going void technically fulfills the deal.
>>38176992More reality warping instead of DARK DARKNESS THE DARKENING: DARKNESS RISES and probably a weakness to antimagic instead of a weakness to light.
>>38176980>>38177022>>38177034I'd still wait until Kae is of age so if he does flip his shit we're covered. After all he's is the most lawyery of the five and vindictive as hell when he wants to be.Still if it comes to Lirael taking the final step before then, Well we gotta do what we gotta do.
>>38176992>>38177059Oh, and shadow stuff has its own branch of teleportation.I'd be surprised if Void didn't have its own branch of teleportation stuff since Shee started with psychoportation.
>>38177034>His avatar is the only other known character who is 100% for sure someone he'd fuck us over for.Wouldn't be so sure aboutt hat actually. I'm starting to think Baalzi is grooming Shee as his Avatar.He keeps helping her out all the time, and this entire deal, I don't believe for a second we're actually screwing him over there.He says he wants a new Clan. I bet he'd be okay with Shee being its leader too.
>>38177110How does voidportation work?
>>38177087That's more than 2 years away. Waiting on that is completely unfeasible.
>>38177114I admit, I'd totally avatar for Baalzamon. He's been pretty cool without spoiling Shee like the King and ichor would do.
>>38177114Being the Avatar of Baalzamon wouldn't be so bad if only because that means there isn't someone else running around as his avatar to fuck us over eventually.Not sure the other players would go for it, though.
You rise that morning and enjoy breakfast with your friends and family. Everyone seems a little calmer today, for now at least.Over breakfast you broach the topic of building stuff in your realm, with Dev.“Uh sure” says Dev “I can take the morning off at least, my new boss is a cool guy, just let me call ahead.”With Dev out of the room, you all eye one another, saying nothing. Once breakfast is over, Lirael heads off to watch cartoons, you think about enrolling her in school or hiring a tutor or something, then shake your head, a problem for another day.Rainya and Kaelyn seem to be having some sort of *not-looking-at-each-other* contest, then Kaelyn sighs, gets to her feet and says “Rainya, c’mon, we need to talk.”“Yeah” says Rainya, rising “We do.” Before you can say a word the two of them walk out of the room, arm in arm, leaving you alone. Eventually, Dev returns.“Alright” he says “I need to be at work at midday, what did you want to make?”“A workshop or something for you” you say as the two of you head upstairs “working in the pantry can’t be easy.”“I manage” says Dev with a shrug.Once in your realm you say “So what do you think, a treehouse?”“If it’s a workshop ground level is best” says Dev “besides, will we have to run a power cable up the stairs or something.”“Maybe not” you say, thinking “maybe I can create a tidal generator or something.”“Do you even know what a tidal generator looks like?” asks Dev with a grin“No” you admit “damnit this is going to be harder than I thought.”---After a while you have a fairly sturdy workshop built, a little ways inland from the beach house, with a path going between the two. When you start stocking it with tools, you run into a problem.“So what is a mazer power decoupler?” you ask Dev
>>38177175Thing is we'd lose access to see mom and hell dad as a likely result. Not acceptable. If we don't then maybe.
“You use it to interrupt hover engine fields when you’re working on them whilst they’re running” says Dev “it lets you see how the hover engines field is cohering, if there’s any flaws in it.”“That sounds really useful” you say “but I have no idea how to make one.”Dev rolls his eyes “So I’ll use the one in your toolbox for now” he says“Oh sure” you say, calling your toolbox from out of your dimensional arsenal, recalling at the last moment that your teleportation powers are blocked.Except someone forgot to tell your toolbox this, because it just appeared in your hands. You set it down carefully and then start teleporting all over the workshop as Dev digs through the tools.“What are you doing Shee?” asks Dev“It’s back!” you say, appearing next to him, then teleporting across the workshop, then back next to Dev “I’m back! I’m so happy!” You hug Dev impulsively, your teleporting is back!“Uh yeah, good for you” says Dev handing you a tool “you told me you could like tell if a machine is working by touching it, right?”“Right” you say, taking the tool.“This” he says “is a mazer power decoupler” he hits a button and it starts humming “can you make another using it as a template?”“I never really thought of that” you admit, holding the tool in one hand, using your connection to machinery to examine how it works and then...imagining an identical one in your other hand.It takes about a dozen tries to get it right, but once its working, it’s working.“Wow Dev” you say, “I’m impressed, how is it that you know how this works better than me.”Dev scratches his head “I dunno” he admits “It just makes sense that copying something s easier than inventing it.”“Yeah” you say, your mind thinking of the possibilities “Yeah”“So Shee” says Dev “can you work from design schematics, and how big a thing can you make?”“I’m not sure” you say “to both of those.”
>>38177114I think he's trying to do something more dastardly than just have an avatar of his own. He seems like the kind of guy who wouldn't want an avatar as much as he'd want someone who favours him while still leeching gifts off his siblings. Y'know, like what Shee's doing now.
>>38177144>>38177175I would have enjoyed playing Avatar of Baalzamon, but I don't think it'd be a good fit for Shee now.I do however think he is trying to maneuver Shee into a position where he can make her a offer she can't refuse.
“Some of the mechanics I work with” says Dev “were talking about the war machines, the *Great Engines* that fought during the invasion, apparently some of them were hundreds of metres tall and cost billions and billions of credits, I just wondered that if we got you a design or something, could you make one?”When did Dev get so smart? You goggle at him a littleYour response>I need schematics, schematics of giant robots!>I need to learn more about technology, like, right now>Dev, I love you man *fist-bump*>That’s crazy talk>For a power source, how about we get the warmech up here>Other (what?)
>>38175915>Dev seems utterly unaffected by everyone’s mood, or possibly he just doesn’t notice, being his usual genial self.Dev is a robot!I think Pally is starting to try to smack us with a clue bat. Dec may not be totally mundane.I think Dev may be a blank or someone who can negate magical/mystical power. He never had a chance, since he never made a saving throw on the stuff yet. He flubbed the serecs mind control when Pally stated it would offer different actions. He seems impervious otherwise to Kae's instability aura. The only other magic was when Repear blasted everyone with emo waves. There is a metagame reason I think so too.
>>38177252That is what I have in mind yeah. He wants Shee to grow in power with his siblings gift, and then get her to work for him.>>38177264>I need to learn more about technology, like, right now>For a power source, how about we get the warmech up here>Making one here would have the problem of getting it out of here, we can't really get it through the corridor downstairs.
>>38177124Willful ignorance of the constraints of spatial dimensions.
>>38177264>I need to learn more about technology, like, right now
>>38177264>>I need to learn more about technology, like, right now>Dev, I love you man *fist-bump*>Making one here would have the problem of getting it out of here, we can't really get it through the corridor downstairs. I would however love won for defending this place.
>>38177264>I need to learn more about technology, like, right now>Dev, I love you man *fist-bump*>I could make one, but how do we get it out of here? Maybe schematics for something smaller, like a more advanced warmech first.
>>38177264All of the options!>That’s crazy talk>Dev, I love you man *fist-bump*>I need to learn more about technology, like, right now>I need schematics, schematics of giant robots!>For a power source, how about we get the warmech up here

http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQM/answer/124705545004Just throwing it out there for y'all. Artifice would let us start rolling real machines on out of our realm.Who doesn't want to be able to make an army of warmechs with AI cores and have them actually exist?>>38177264>That’s crazy talk>Dev, I love you man *fist-bump*>I need schematics, schematics of giant robots!>I need to learn more about technology, like, right now
>>38177264Man, we need the facility back.
>>38177394The cybernetics will always have me voting no on that.
>>38177394We'd still need tog et them out of the door, but artifice(sans cooruption mods) Would be great.>>38177404That's right it was a production facility wasn't it? We could get schematics from there.
>>38177394I had thought about that, good to get it confirmed.Still, even making something, we'd need to find away to get these things out of here too.
>>38177394How imposable is it to make psychic AIs?
Why should we have to try to fill Dev's role too? This is the kind of thing Rainya was talking about.
Everything plus the write-in huh, ok, working
>>38177502We aren't?Dev just can't build giant robots on his own. Not can Shee for that matter.They will need to work together for that sort of thing.
>>38177502Dev gives us the knowledge we provide the power and materials. If we goof up he has to fix it. This is a team effort. One man can't build a battlemech/titan on his own.
I hope Kae is actually apologizing right now and not fucking with Rainya's head.
>>38177645She probably is...I don't really trust her
>>38177645They decide sharing schedule.
“I’d say that’s crazy talk” you say “but maybe it’s just crazy enough to work!”You offer Dev a fist “pound it Dev, I love you, keep having crazy ideas ok?”Dev gives an amused snort and bangs his much larger fist against yours.“So I’m going to need schematics” you say “giant robots, vehicles everything, sure making one here would have the problem of getting it out of here, we can't really get it through the corridor downstairs. I would however love one for defending this place. And who knows, maybe I will be able to teleport it out of my realm one day.”“Sounds good” says Dev calmly, taking tools you create and arranging them around the workshop to his liking.“So I’m going to need to learn a lot more about technology” you say “how did you get so good so fast anyway?”“The programs at the facility” says Dev “they just, made everything so easy to learn, I mean, I knew a little about it, and you taught me some more but the facility programs just really crammed my slow brain full of useful info.”“It’s a pity I can’t just borrow your brain” you joke “then you could read up on this stuff and I could make it happen.”“Can’t Lirael do that?” asks Dev “combine people’s minds or something?” Well, now you just feel kinda stupid...Eventually you have the workshop built to Devs liking and he manages to find plans for a hydro-electric plant on the Wire, to add that to your list of things to build, then its time for Dev to be heading out for work, and you’re left alone, your mind full of possibilities...

With Dev off to work, you seek out Rainya, passing Kaelyn as she’s on her way back up to your Realm “Did you and Rainya talk things out?” you ask her.“We did yes” says Kaelyn “I think we understand each other a bit better now, and yes, I apologised, though I think you need to talk to her too.”“I plan to” you say as Kaelyn heads upstairs.You knock on Rainyas bedroom door “Rainya, its Shee, can I come in?”After a pause Rainya says “come in.” You walk in to find her curled up on her bed“You ok” you say “how did it go with Kaelyn?”“We talked” says Rainya “She said some stuff that, I yeah, I’m still thinking about, it’s going to take a while to sort through.”Ok, maybe now might not be the best time, still....“Fancy a walk on the beach?” you ask her.Rainya gets up “Yeah” she says “maybe a cool breeze will clear my head.”Ok, one cool breeze coming up...---You and Rainya walk along the beach, just chatting about the crazy stuff that’s happened in your lives recently, and how things were so much simpler back in Dust Town.Then things swing around to a more awkward topic...“So you and Kaelyn made up over the whole emotion thing?” you ask Rainya“I don’t know if *made up* are the right words” says Rainya, walking at your side “but yeah, we talked, we made peace, and we understand each other a little better now.”“That’s good” you say encouragingly “I was afraid you’d-” Rainya interrupts you“Shee I’m sorry” she says, coming to a stop and facing you“It’s ok” you say “your emotions were all over the place and-”“Not that” says Rainya “Well yes, that too but before, when I tore into you about getting stronger, that was wrong of me, and I’m sorry.”You wait, wondering where she is going with this.
“Kaelyn explained something to me” says Rainya “About how some Fae romances work, see some Fae lords have a lot of power, and responsibilities, and if they have a husband or wife of lower rank then the weaker fae always has to support the stronger one, else they’ll risk weakening themselves, weakening both. Kaelyn told me how hard it is for many to accept second place in public, even that’s not how things work in private. Shee, I want to get stronger to help you, and I’ll continue to work hard but I promise I won’t push you to put me in danger any more, that was wrong of me and I’m sorry, and if you don’t want-” Rainya swallows, hard “and if you don’t want me anymore, then I understand” the last bit comes out as a whisper.Your response?>Well I’m glad you realised it, finally>I forgive you, lately things have been stressful>You and me was never going to work>Of course I want you>Hug her (tentacles? Y/N)>Kiss her (quick kiss? deep one? other?)>Other (what?)---Ok and that’s it for today, next thread is tomorrow, same start time.

I don't really like that one though.
>>38178306>Of course I want you>Hug her (Y)>Kiss her (deep one)>I forgive you, lately things have been stressful
>>38178466>Lirael>not tentacle-blocking you
>>38178483Get Durability The faster we heal the faster we can get this done and Teach Lirael for the deal. If she picks up a few other thing before we change it, won't end the world as long as she doesn't take the final step.
>>38178483I'm just for Durability 5 and keep saving the rest to get FoL 6 when appropriate.
>>38178533>>38178483>>38178528What if we bought a couple levels of Will Reinforces the Body? That's +34 HP per level we buy and it'd give us some more magical defense on top of that. We could get it up to 5 and that'd give us 136 hp instantly. And when we eventually heal up to full, all that hp would be on top of it.
>>38178560>That's crazy talk anon.
>>38178483Durability 7 would mean a healing rate of 40HP per day, or 5 every three hours.>>38178560Thats pretty much wasted XP compared to Durablity 7.
>>38178560Durability also gives hp and regen. So far anti-magic hasn't been a thing. We'll need it to fight mirror and king reunited as well as fae, but if we run into those at Crimsonthorne estate we're fucked.>>38178598The anti-magic is good for fae and spell casting reunited, but we aren't running into those again for a while hopefully.
>>38178525Looking at the charsheet I see>Will Reinforces the Body 26Shouldn't that be 34? If I'm misunderstanding how it works, please tell me, but I thought it was twice the will mod, which is +17?
>>38178306>Well I’m glad you realised it, finally>Hug her (tentacles? Y)
SoShee 7/22>Durability 7 (-15XP)We need 20XP to get FoL 6. Which means roughly 2 sessions if we buy Durability 7.
>>38178638Will mod is +13 not +17
>>38178624>The anti-magic is good for fae and spell casting reunited, but we aren't running into those again for a while hopefully.Our magic defenses are already very good.Not saying that WRtB is bad, just not as useful to our purpose as Dur7.
>>38178483Feast of life also will give us 30 vampire power xp to spend.6 levels of endurance or healing for extra hp pool. However durability allows us to us xp as a second psychic pool long term.
>>38178666I don't understand. How is>(p)Willpower – 18 (+4), Willpower of the Infinite Mirror 36 (+13)only +13? I see a +13 and a +4. Is the +4 not considered part of the will mod for some reason. I'm sorry if this is really obvious and I'm just being retarded,
>>38178681Oh surely, just saying we'll need it down the line, for now durability up to 9 please.>>38178691Healing and all costs Vitae though, meaning we'd need to bight someone.>>38178728Natural mod is +4, mod with Willpower of mirror added in is +13
>>38178728Its our natural Willpower first, and then our Willpower with modification.
>>38178728Willpower base is 18 (resulting in a +4 modifier)Willpower of the Infinite Mirror ads 18 to the base stat, boosting it to 36 (resulting in a +13 total modifier)The +13 is the total modifier, it is not added to the +4
>>38178691>6 levels of endurance or healing for extra hp pool.Its a very miniscule gain of extra HP though.Not really worth it for that alone.While Getting Dur7 would mean a permanent 5HP every three hours healing rate, which is pretty good, and allows us to avoid situations like this one where we are crippled for days.
>>38178805And it'd get us close to our max of Dura 9(king favor cap) Which is 5 every hour I believe.
>>38178793What happens if we spend HP instead of PE for I'll Never Bow to Pain?
>>38178855It is.Although I don't think we buy that one anytime soon.For me the question is mainly, Dura5, and we wait a bit longer, but can buy FoL6 faster.Or Dur7 and we can move out faster, but we'll need at least 2 more sessions for FoL6 and PoB.
>>38178747>Healing and all costs Vitae though, meaning we'd need to bight someone.Yeah, but they have a passive hp bonus. (I think) Durability is what we want now however. Enough to heal and be active.Start leveling rainya's kenetic weapon so she is never unarmed? Or melee comat for some all round stuff. Or durability so she has staying power. Or moar clones?
>>38178893We could just get into a bunch of fights. FBB gives us 2xp per fight minimum.
>>38178895For Rainya herself I would only get Duplicate Armour2 right now, so she can Duplicate with that medium armour we got her.Afterwards I'd like to save up to get her War Form 3, because it can get stuffed full with useful gifts and would increase her viability in fights immensly.>>38178923But can't be spend on FoL.
>>38178871you can't, you need hit points to spend, and to use I'll Never Bow to Pain you need to be on 0HP
>>38178893WE don't have to turn Lirael immediately after she takes step one so i'd say durability. up to 7 use our inevitable bonus exp to level it up to 9 while using our nat exp on FoL after we get moving again.>>38178895We want Dura definitely. As for Rainya I'd suggest more Dura and skill increases so she can dodge and not get hit.
Is there a pastebin anywhere that has the vampire powers explained better than the Allies power paste?
>>38178970>I'd suggest more DuraThats kind of a waste at this point. She gets more from being able to Duplicate the medium armour, and getting war form with possibly more Dura.>>38178991What more explanation do you need?
>>38178991If you don't mind listing what is unclear I'll see if I can update the pastebin to explain it more fully
>>38179012If not more Dura then make sure her core skills are up to snuff, and increase her might.
>>38178970>Dura and skill increases so she can dodge and not get hit.She can't really win that power level arms race with something that scales as poorly as Dura or Skills.Melee or Unarmed combat skill maybe once we need it.But otherwise unique abilities, like getting Invulnerable Hide via War Form is far better to make her combat viable.
>>38178930Only need Duplicate Armour 1 for Medium Armour. Armoured is better anyway.
Wait a second.The vampire shadow magic is pretty much the same thing as the psychic Shadowcraft in the rules paste, right? So would that mean that if Shee were to learn it from the shadow vamp we kidnap, she'd get those sweet bonuses to psychoportation that it gives?
Is bio-fab tech a thing in this setting? If so could we get implants that make blood?
Shee 7/22>Durability 7 (-15XP)Rainya 10/15>Duplicate Armour 1 (-5XP)>>38179111>Armoured is betterLongterm, yes. But it takes a bit of a investment before it gets there.>>38179170>If so could we get implants that make blood?To what purpose?
>>38179163Yes>>38179170Yes and Yes
>>38178306Could you speak a little on what the Artifice cybernetics would actually be like, not just what they'd do?
>>38179198Why can we not just get Shadows naturally since our Vampiric power would come from the God of Shadows?
>>38179196Not sure if its worth getting Duplicate Armour, instead of saving up for WarForm/Armoured.Do we really need super protection for all the Rainyas right now?I say we save up her XP for more useful stuff.
>>38179198>YesFuck yes.Does this mean that if we bought FoL now, we could use the XP it gives towards vamp skills on having Shee learn shadowcraft once it becomes available?
>>38179196Acid squirting, maybe
>>38179217Probably something to do with why Baalzi fucking hates them so much.
>>38179238We can also do so if we buy FoL later.>>38179242...What?
>>38179198>Yes and YesAnd what if we wanted to find a way to give such implants to our vampire clan pray tell Pally the Ace?
>>38179198Would Shee's shadowcraft be listed on her sheet as "voidcraft" or something or would the void stuff be listed under it as an impossibility thing like how the other powers we have now have the impossibility things listed under them?
>>38179280It would do nothing, because the blood needs to come from a living being.
>>38179204What would they be like?They would be mechanical but would only *appear* so to a close examination, or when injured. They would not appear different from the real thing.I.e. a cybernetic arm looks and feels just like a flesh-and-blood one, but when injured it becomes obvious that it is not.Further, since they would be *natural* cybernetics they would existing within Shees flesh and blood, making her both mechanical *and* biological>>38179217You can gain them naturally, once you have Primacy of Blood>>38179238Yes
>>38179301It would be listed as an impossibility power for Shee, for her vampires it might be different>>38179280They would still head to feed off blood to live, but they might heal a little faster
>>38179309>What would they be like?>>They would be mechanical but would only *appear* so to a close examination, or when injured. They would not appear different from the real thing.>>I.e. a cybernetic arm looks and feels just like a flesh-and-blood one, but when injured it becomes obvious that it is not.>>Further, since they would be *natural* cybernetics they would existing within Shees flesh and blood, making her both mechanical *and* biologicalNeat. Thanks for answering.
>>38179231Depends on if Rainya can use a suit of normal armor and her summoned armor at the same time.
>>38179394>if Rainya can use a suit of normal armor and her summoned armor at the same time.She cannot
>>38179394So yeah if we need to be inconspicuous about it duplicate armor would be nice. Some twin/ quadruplets in armor is probably less noticeable than 4 warforms.
>>38179452Yeah I think those 5Xp are well spent for now.No idea when we will even start dumping XP into Armoured.I would have thought of getting Duplicate Weapon too, for the miniguns, but since we can spend those XP on energy weapon anyway, I don't think there is much of a point.
>>38179409If we purchase a power under War Form and later acquire it outside of War Form, is the Bonus XP that was spent on it refunded to be used on other War Form things? Does War Form have a maximum level?
>>38179346>It would be listed as an impossibility power for Shee, for her vampires it might be differentAh, so it wouldn't completely overwrite the shadow stuff, at least for Shee herself? She could still get dat +10 for standing in a shadow?
>>38179544>If we purchase a power under War Form and later acquire it outside of War Form, is the Bonus XP that was spent on it refunded to be used on other War Form things?Yes>Does War Form have a maximum level?No>>38179551>Ah, so it wouldn't completely overwrite the shadow stuff, at least for Shee herself?Correct>She could still get dat +10 for standing in a shadow?Yes
>>38179196>>38179231After looking up and calculating it through, I retract my objection. Getting DA1 is better than saving up for Armoured.
>>38179346>They would still need to feed off blood to live, but they might heal a little fasterEven if granted by Artifice cybernetics? Assuming thats a no go (and that would probably be for the best) could Impossibility/Corruption shenanigans get us round that? Or bring Quinn back for Ash?
>>38179685>Even if granted by Artifice cybernetics? Yes>could Impossibility/Corruption shenanigans get us round that?Possibly>Or bring Quinn back for Ash?Again, possible
>>38179602Do we need to be aware of an attack to block it with Invulnerable Hide?
>>38179732>could Impossibility/Corruption shenanigans get us round that?>PossiblyThat sounds rather silly and nonsensical, if you don't mind me saying.How would Imposibility make that happen?
>>38179759>How would Imposibility make that happen?>Asking how Impossibility would do somethingAnon, we're going to be beating people up with nothingness within ten threads.
>>38179748Nope>>38179759>How would Imposibility make that happen?"These vampires don't need blood any more because they feed on something else instead."Teen AngstSunlightMemesetc
>>38179809Magic would seem appropriate as something they eat.
>>38179789Thats a different thing though. Just because you can do some things, doesn't mean you can do ALL THE THINGS.Its matter of keeping the theme, so to speak.Devolving Imposibility from "Overcome all limits" to "do whatever you want", is rather problematic.>>38179809>"These vampires don't need blood any more because they feed on something else instead."Pretty sure thats not what his question meant. he wanted to know if we could make cybernetic blood producing implants that feed vampires on their own.
>>38179834>Pretty sure thats not what his question meant. he wanted to know if we could make cybernetic blood producing implants that feed vampires on their own.I did, If we don't ask we wont get.
>>38179834>Pretty sure thats not what his question meant. he wanted to know if we could make cybernetic blood producing implants that feed vampires on their own.No, as per >>38179346
>>38179732>>Or bring Quinn back for Ash?>Again, possibleIf we had read his mind we could probably make a effigy Quinn and make it real to send out again.As good as new and better than the old one.
Shee 7/22>Durability 7 (-15XP)Rainya 10/15>Duplicate Armour 1 (-5XP)Could we get this officialised so we have it next thread? That'd be great. Should probably make your disagreements known now, before we fall off-board.
>>38180071Sounds good, I take it we're saving Dev's exp for something. Lirael's for shadow powers soon and Kae's for group feeding?Rainya having flight might be helpful.
>>38180071Shee Hyul, 15/22 XP>Durability +3 (7) -15 XPRainya Halms, 5/15 XP>Duplicate Armour +1 (1) -5 XPThere you go.
>>38180071>>38180226I'm fine with it.
>>38180188I'm thinking about having her get Form of the King of Hell 1 in her War Form, so she gets wings. That might be nice. Otherwise we could also get flight for her.I have honestly no real idea what to do with Kaes XP right now, probably more Martial Arts?>>38180226Thank you. Any opinions on future purchases for our companions?
>>38179876Can Force Armour and Armoured be used in conjunction with each other?
>>38180284How much does Kae have right now?
>>38180226Any ideas on exp for Dev, Kae and Lirael? (assuming we need to save 5 of her exp for shadow powers)
>>38180313I'd like to put more than 5 into shadows for Lirael. As long as we don't take her up to max, it'll be fine.
>>38180313I'd save as much as possible of Liraels XP so she can start going into our Void powers, once we give them.Not sure about Dev. I would like to see if we can save up some Willpower, so we can give him psychic powers once we can do so.>>3818030626
>>38180226I thought we were going to invest heavily in FoL?
>>38180355>As long as we don't take her up to max, it'll be fine.Didn't Baalzamon only say he wouldn't whisper his secrets to her until she was a master? He didn't say anything about regular talking, and he can do weird bullshit with that. I think we should make her Void as soon as the deal counts as complete. Still, yeah, more than 5 XP into it.
>>38180355>>38180370Well yeah but we need to save 5 minimum. I was thinking maybe upping her Might some?As for Dev and psi awakening him, the extra will is good but our hands are full with Fol/PoB for a while.
>>38180396We will, but no point right now, and we need the stronger HP regen from Durability so we can hunt the shadow vamps at all, afterwards we have no time limit on getting FoL6.>>38180403Awakening one power isn't very XP intensive, and afterwards he can purchase from the whole Discipline himself.
>>38180396Durability 7 was (slightly) higher priority.>>38180313>>38180284Likely psionics for Dev; Lirael might want to get Might 12, other than that save for Void/Shadow for now; Still thinking about what would be best for Kae, she could go in a few directions.
>At Metanatural Durability 19 you heal 1 hit point every 1 round.>At Metanatural Durability 21 you heal 1 hit point every 1 round.Is this right? If it is right, why?
>>38180403>I was thinking maybe upping her Might some?Thats the only power left she doesn't have one twelve yet, so obviously.
>>38180447How much does it cost again? I can't find it?
>>38180562>The Psychic Surgery check is made with a -20 penalty, costs 20 psychic energy and 1XP and takes 1 hour.
>>381805621xp for an attempt, but it can fail.
>>38180584>>38180588Found it, Is this us suing psy surgery in conjunction with corruption and impossibility? Cause I don't see how he could get psionics otherwise.
>>38180640>Psychic Infection>You can grant another being psychic potential using Psychic Surgery>The Psychic Surgery check is made with a -20 penalty, costs 20 psychic energy and 1XP and takes 1 hour. Failure means nothing happens.>Success means the subject is awakened to a single discipline that you have of your choice, and can use a single power you can use, of your choice.>The beneficiary of this power can spend XP to access powers within that discipline normally but cannot access powers outside of that discipline.>You may use this ability on a recipient multiple times, awakening different disciplines, or granting them further powers within a single discipline.>You cannot grant a power that you do not know. Full-blooded fae are immune to this power.>Requires: Telepathy Adept, Metapsionics Master
>>38180640I assume its probably available through Corruption, it doesn't say that anywhere directly, but it makes sense it would be a Corruption advancement of Imparting Knowledge.
>>38180640I think it's just doing the thing that Serec do to people.
>>38180659Where was that then it's not on the char sheet we buy it already?>>38180678>>38180694ok then.
>>38180731It's on the rules sheet, so I'm guessing we didn't buy it yet.
>>38180731We can't buy it right now, it needs Metapsionics Mastery.Its in the rules sheet like all unpurchased powers..
>>38180747>>38180755So we're going to have to wait on it for a while then.
>>38180803We are very likely going to make it a priority once the whole thing with Baalzamon is settled.Because it gateways more advancement for Dev.We still need 3 powers for Metapsionic mastery, so 15XP before we can purchase it.
>>38180871Anything Dev needs from exp pool in meantime then? He's got 20 exp or more to spend and he'll keep gaining more. Willpower maybe?
>(p)Strength – 20 (+5)Isn't 18 the human max?
>>38180976>Huge Build: Dev is a big guy. He can use larger than normal weapons without penalty, these weapons deal additional damage. His limits for strength and constitution are 2 points higher and his base HP is 5 points higher.
>>38180976Dev has a Perk that allows him to get 20 in Strength and Constitution.>>38180916Willpower would be the only thing for now, but he doesn't really need that badly, we have to see what comes up for him, nothing really immediate.
